Left in the lurch By Claire Castle
Parents on the Leamington side of the river have been left scrambling, after a Ministry of Education ruling which means Year 9 and 10 students will be ineligible to catch the bus to Cambridge High School from the start of next term. Ministry rules mean the students have to catch the bus to their closest available school – in this case, Cambridge Middle School, which takes students from Year 7 to Year 10. This rule has always been in place, but not enforced, however a letter to the parents from Cambridge Travel Lines said Year 9s are not allowed on the bus anymore due to “loading issues”. The Ministry of Education’s Head of Education Infrastructure Service, Kim Shannon, said Cambridge Travel Lines alerted the Ministry to the fact that the high school bus service was reaching capacity. “Once the capacity of eligible students is reached we are required to offload students who are not eligible for transport assistance. In some cases, or some days, not all eligible students take the bus to school which can be interpreted as the bus not being full,” Kim said, explaining why students have reported that the bus routinely has spare seats. Year 9s were selected to be “offloaded”, with Year 10s next on the list should bus capacity be reached, as they are also technically ineligible for the service to the high school. One of the students affected is Year 9 Annika Johns, whose mother Natascha posted on the Cambridge Grapevine Facebook page to see if others were in the same plight. Natascha said Annika has been granted an exemption for Term three and can still catch the bus because the rules require a term’s notice and their letter in June did not give enough warning. Continued on page 3
Natascha and Hayden Johns will have to find another way for their Year 9 daughter to get to Cambridge High due to a Ministry of Education ruling, while their Year 12 son can continue to catch the bus.

On Sunday, I went along to the Repair Co-Op upstairs at Meraki Workspace on Victoria St. The coop runs every time the Trash and Treasure is on and gives people the chance to bring things along to get help with repairing them. And I have to say, it was really enjoyable. Not only did I get to help a lovely lady fix an adorable sheep hot water bottle cover that belonged to her late mother, but I also got to meet some new people in the process. Sadly, the lamp I took in will need professional assistance, however in this busy world we live in it was nice to do something for someone else for a change. So I will be going back for sure, along with my trusty sewing kit and a willingness

Editor, Can anyone please tell me the geological history of the steep sided gully that runs from near Albert St, Cambridge, roughly parallel to Thornton Rd and French Pass Rd, as far as the Karapiro area. Is it an old track of the Waikato River? Or maybe a trench formed by volcanic activity? And does this gully have a name? While we are on the subject of names I am intrigued by the name French Pass Rd also. During the “Slump” my father was a shepherd (unpaid) in the French Pass Area – that is, on D’Urville Island. Dumont D’Urville, a Frenchman, was the first European to navigate the pass, hence the name. So what about French Pass Road then? Is it from a pioneer surname or what?

to give it a crack*. It’s sustainable, it’s fun, and it’s something different to do on a Sunday morning. You will have seen on the front page a story that’s been a talking point for parents of Year 9 and 10 students in Leamington, with the Ministry of Education deciding to enforce a rule that these kids will only be eligible to get a school bus to their closest school – Cambridge Middle School – from the start of next term. Which would be fine, except that it’s common practice in Cambridge for kids to move on to Cambridge High School at the end of Year 8. It may not stay that way in the future, but that’s how it is now, and it seems daft that the Ministry would go down this route instead of just putting
on another bus. As a Leamingtonian and parent of kids who are destined for Cambridge High, I think the situation quite ridiculous and I hope for everyone’s sake it can be sorted out quickly. Because nobody has time for this sort of bureaucratic rubbish. *Results will vary depending on degree of difficulty of the repair.
Fun activities mark 20th Cambridge Library is celebrating two decades at 23 Wilson St with a week of fun activities next week. Everyone is invited to join in the festivities, which include behind the scene tours, activities, competitions, cake and a big birthday bash on Friday 20 July. Community facilities manager Bruce Airey said the celebrations are a way to give back to the community who have supported the library throughout the years. “We’ve seen a lot of changes in our Library since it moved to Wilson St in 1998. We’ve progressed from paper library cards to an online system, added
eBooks, audiobooks and interactive databases to our services. We’re grateful to our local users who continue to support our libraries and their services.” Originally established in 1872, the Cambridge Library was housed at Cambridge Primary School, Cambridge Town Hall and later on Victoria St before moving to its current site. “When it first opened there were only 30 members and a couple of hundred titles, now we have over 100,000 visitors and check out over 296,000 books each year in Cambridge alone.” Bruce said he hopes the community will join in the festivities next week and celebrate this milestone.

New era for Destination Cambridge
By Viv Posselt
Fresh into her role as CEO of Destination Cambridge, Michelle ‘Miff’ Macdiarmid believes the time is right to lay a strong foundation for the town’s current and future growth. News of Miff’s appointment was released last month. She steps into the organisation’s base at Cambridge i-SITE and into the shoes of Roger Gordon, who announced his plans to step down in mid-2017. Her first ‘handover’ week saw Miff putting faces to names and getting a handle on exactly what is needed to take the town forward. She’s now on a
fortnight’s leave – booked long ago – and will be back in action on July 23. Talking to Cambridge News on her fifth day in office, she said: “Roger has done a fantastic job in setting up a good, viable business. My mission is to make Cambridge even more visible, and part of that is to enhance marketing in the digital and social media space. “We have a fantastic resource here, both for locals and visitors. One aspect of my role will be to make what is on offer here more visible to both, as well as continue to promote other elements we have in Cambridge – accommodation, events, restaurants and so on.” Miff’s brand and e-commerce skill-
Left in the lurch Continued from page 1 After that, she will have to make other arrangements, while her brother, Toby, Year 12, can still catch the bus. Annika’s father Hayden said the family appreciates that the bus service to the school is a privilege, however he disagrees with the way the Ministry has gone about cutting the numbers. “They (the Ministry) are being sneaky, trying to cut it down,” Hayden said. Cambridge Middle School currently has nine Year 9 students and one Year 10, and principal Daryl Gibbs said the school strongly disagrees with the decision. It had been a topic of discussion earlier in the year, he said, but the first he knew of the Ministry’s action was when he received a phone call from a concerned parent. “There has been a bigger conversation around what education might look like in our town, which started last year, and I thought they
(the Ministry) would hold off until we had some certainty. To see those letters was a bit shock to us,” he said. As it stands, Daryl said the school would be unable to cope with an influx of Year 9 and 10 students if they all enrolled at the middle school in order to qualify for a bus. “If roughly 200 kids turned up (at the start of 2019), the Ministry would have to build 10 new classrooms in the next five months.” The Ministry, however, disagrees with Daryl’s numbers, with Kim saying the decision is only affecting six families. The numbers of people speaking out on Facebook would appear to contradict this figure, however, with talk of a petition and protest action by disgruntled parents. Daryl agreed there are many more than just six kids affected by the decision, saying his numbers are based on the number of children expected to be impacted
in the new 2019 school year. The Ministry of Education said the move is not designed to channel the Year 9 and 10 students into the middle school, however they would deal with that if it happened. “At this stage,” she said, “the Ministry doesn’t expect that the enforcement of bus eligibility rules will call for additional classrooms”. Cambridge High School’s Board of Trustees chairman Karl Thornton said that the board and school have jointly written to the Minister of Education voicing concerns about the changes. “We are waiting a reply from the Minister. We are hoping to meet with the parents and caregivers of the students who this impacts on but were hoping to have something back from the Minister before the meeting,” he said. Cambridge Travel Lines declined to comment, referring all questions to the Ministry of Education.
set incorporates management, strategic planning, and marketing. This role will allow her to follow another passion – tourism. Born in the deep south, she worked a few student jobs in the tourism sector before graduating from Otago University with a degree in physical education, and from Auckland with a post-graduate diploma in business. It was a combination that set her up for a move into the management and marketing side of R&R Sports. The next few years saw Miff and her husband Alastair fit in an OE, move around New Zealand, and buy into the company before R&R Sports rebranded and became the bricks and mortar outlets for the online sports store, Torpedo 7. When the Warehouse Group purchased both companies in 2013, the Macdiarmids were part of the package and remained in situ for a couple more years. On leaving, Miff took on a marketing and digital projects role with Good
George Brewery but was scanning the horizon for something else when she spotted the advertised position with Destination Cambridge. The family – Alastair and their two children Molly and James – had settled here four years earlier. Miff describes the job as a “perfect fit”, while her predecessor Roger Gordon predicts an “exciting new era” ahead for Cambridge. “Aside from my passion for tourism, I’m keen to boost local engagement through i-SITE. I had no idea this was such a fantastic resource for locals as well as visitors. I want to bump up local knowledge about what is on offer here, as well as promote the town to outside visitors. There are endless possibilities” she said. “This is our opportunity to put in place the foundation for the growth that Cambridge is currently experiencing, and that we welcome. I am ecstatic to be a part of it – and it’s only 10 minutes from home!”
Michelle ‘Miff’ Macdiarmid is ecstatic to take on a role that will help her steer Cambridge into the future.

Project earns peace prize
By Sophie Iremonger
A group of girls at Cambridge High School have done their bit to better humanity and won a prize in the process. Amie Fittall, Olivia Karl and Jana McFetridge received a Highly Commended award at the Waikato Secondary Schools Peace Competition awards ceremony on June 28, for their video project completed in May. The Year 11 students were challenged with answering the question: How can we help New Zealand to lead the way in creating a world where people learn to listen to, and respect the views of others and work out differences in a non-violent way? Their response, conveyed in a short film, was simple: working
together as one. They referenced the Maori principles of manaakitanga – hospitality, kindness, caring, respect, generosity and support – and whanaungatanga – kinship, connectedness and relationships through shared experiences. “Having academic success is one thing, but having community success is the most important thing, actually working together as one,” explained their teacher supporting the project, Vanessa Tupp. “It was awesome for the girls just to create the project, but to actually get a highly commended and be invited to the awards was a really wonderful opportunity for them.” The girls won $500 to split with the school, taking home $85 each as well as a certificate presented by
Fletcher Tabuteau, deputy leader of NZ First, and competition manager Judith Cartwright from the Peace and Disarmament Education Trust (PADET) – which was originally set up and funded by some of the French reparations for the Rainbow Warrior. The girls, all 15 years old, spent a week and a half on the project, braving the freezing cold to film some of their shots at Lake Te Koo Utu. “The cinematography was very well done,” Vanessa said. “For us it wasn’t really the money that we were in it for, it was just putting our views and our say and meaning into one video,” said Amie, explaining that the competition had given them a
platform to share their message. “You can say something, but who’s going to hear it. But with this, now people are going to hear it.” “I love filming, so that’s why I really wanted to do it,” said Olivia. “I think like a little bit of my voice came through in the shots that I got.” The girls said after completing the project, one thing they learned is: “Small acts can make big differences,” said Amie. “Thanks to Miss Tupp for inspiring us,” Jana added. “I’m incredibly proud of what they achieved, incredibly proud,” Vanessa Tupp said. “They took their idea and just ran with it.”
Careers Expo for everyone By Sophie Iremonger
Students and adults thinking about their future will have a huge range of options to consider at a free community event planned for next month. The Cambridge Community Careers Expo will see over 40 exhibitors from around the country share what they have to offer for those looking to pursue a new career, or even better themselves in their current one. Gathering in the Alf Walsh Lounge at the Cambridge Racecourse on Wednesday, August 8, 2.30pm 8pm, tertiary providers, employers, armed forces, and industry training organisations will provide plenty of opportunities to find out more about job and training opportunities for all ages, free of charge. “We want anybody and everybody to come,” said Keith Robinson, Head of Careers, Pathway and Gateway at Cambridge High School. “The aim is basically to let students and the wider community know of all of the providers that are actually out there, to give them an awareness of what the opportunities are, and so they can have face-to-face contact with a provider.” Keith, who retired at the end of term last week after 29 years with the school, has organised a community careers expo every other year, for many years. “Now working in with the Cambridge
schools Community of Learning that’s starting to develop, and with the expo coming up this year, we thought it made sense for the two schools to come together,” Keith explained. This year’s event is co-sponsored by both Cambridge High School and St Peter’s School, and open to all members of the public. “We just want the community to rock on up!” said Barbara Read, Head of Careers at St Peter’s School. “We’d love for people to take the opportunity (to attend) … and for it to make a positive difference for somebody.” The huge range of exhibitors cover all sorts of industries and providers, with a number of universities and technology institutes, career consultancy organisations, and all sorts of training organisations, from animation and agriculture to deep sea diving and aviation. The pair said the best advice for those thinking about exploring a new career would be to, “Be prepared to look around, look at all the options that are available … and network, the more people you can talk to the better,” said Keith. “Talk to people who know about what you’d like to do and ask them questions” Barbara added. “And to find that you’ve got to go and try out a few new things.” The expo is still open for exhibitors to sign up. To find out more contact the careers department at Cambridge High School on 827 5415, ext 843.

Laser pointer menace
Following recent incidents in Cambridge, Morrinsville and Hamilton, police would like to remind the public that pointing laser pointers at aircraft is a serious offence that comes with heavy penalties. What might seem like a harmless prank from the ground can a catastrophic effect by visually impairing pilots. The worst-case scenario of this temporary “flash blindness” caused to a pilot is that the plane could crash, and imagine having that on your conscience. The penalty for endangering transport under the Crimes Act is up to 14 years in jail. Being caught carrying a high-powered laser pointer in a public place without a reasonable excuse will get you a $2000 fine or three months in jail. So don’t do it – and if you do, be prepared for the full weight of the law to come down upon you.

The first show at the Gaslight Theatre since the new curtains were installed will kick off this weekend. Joanna Bishop, who recently played Vera in Blind Eye at the Gaslight, will perform in a one-woman show which she wrote herself. A Revealing Thyme proved to be a massive success during its soldout run at the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival earlier this year. Now it’s coming to Cambridge, with shows across July 14, 15, 21 and 22 at the Gaslight Theatre on Alpha St. As Jo describes it, the show reveals the harshness of colonial life alongside love and hope, following the life of Mary Best, and English woman who immigrates to New Zealand with her husband in 1869
Cambridge Community Board By Mike Pettit, chairman. We received a response from NZTA regarding the Board asking for the physical drivers licence test to be reinstated after it was removed in 2012. At that time, NZTA determined that Cambridge did not have the traffic volume or road complexity needed to ensure that young and novice drivers would be exposed to the higher assessment criteria required to pass the restricted and full license tests. Clearly our road complexity is now not the issue or traffic volumes based on the two closest testing stations, being Te Awamutu and Matamata. They now state that due to the lack in the volume of tests been undertaken by residents from Cambridge, 971 in 2017, that we are not eligible. We will take this as a formal discussion to the August meeting. If Cambridge desires this testing back, which the CCB supports, then we will need your support. Please send emails in support of this to: Tara Kiriona, Senior Customer Access Representative, email@example.com. nz, and please cc myself in at the below email. The Board has received an in-depth response from the Ministry
of the Environment regarding the placement of telecommunication towers in residential areas. We have now asked council to make a joint submission asking for change to the current legislation. Telco towers can affect anyone living anywhere so we encourage you to also make a submission through; http://www.mfe. govt.nz/consultation/ draft-national-planningstandards by the August 17. The CCB heard from Cambridge East School representatives regarding the fireworks event – held at Mighty River Domain for the past two years. We are 100 per cent behind the event as it gives joy to thousands of Waipa residents. It is a way people can enjoy a professional display within a safe and family friendly environment. We understand there are a couple of issues to be worked through, however the community are behind the event and hope it eventuates later in the year. I wish to acknowledge and thank Taina Witheford who is departing as CEO from the Chamber of Commerce and has been a real advocate for business
Mike Pettit and Cambridge as a whole over the past few years. I also acknowledge Roger Gordon, CEO of I-Site and Destination Cambridge, who has done so much adding value to increasing Cambridge’s profile and helping it becoming increasingly a tourist destination town. Our CCB meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month starting with a Public Forum at 6.00pm, where members of the public are able to come and speak. To place an item on the formal agenda, please do so at least 10 days before the meeting, either by emailing myself on; mike.pettit@waipadc. govt.nz or our CCB secretary, Noelene.BarrAllwood@waipadc.govt. nz or contact any board member by visiting the waipadc webpage.
and becomes a local midwife and herbalist in Lawrence, Otago’s first goldrush town. “The play just combined my love of acting and theatre with my love of the subject,” said Jo, who was inspired to write the play by her PhD research of the history of medicinal plants in New Zealand. “Through the diaries and journals of colonial women, I learned of the valuable contribution these women made to the health of the colonial population, and I pay homage to them through this play,” she explained. “I love acting and love the research that went into this play. As I read the stories of colonial women, I imagine myself as one, and so it seemed natural to act it myself,” she said. “I also liked the idea of challenging myself as an actor with my own script.” The play paints the picture of New Zealand’s goldmining frontier coupled with colonial ideas and understandings of health and wellness, weaving aspects of New
Zealand’s history with an emotional journey into Mary’s life. The show will kick off from 7pm Saturday and 2pm Sunday both this weekend and next weekend, at the Gaslight Theatre, 8 Alpha St, tickets are $20 at the door.
Cambridge News has a double pass to give away to one of next weekend’s shows, just send your full name and contact number, with the subject line “A Revealing Thyme” to: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 9am, Wednesday July 18.

smaller bottles, so there’s only one bottle for the recycling. “Sometimes I can’t avoid using plastic bags though,” he explained, “for example at the food court a bag is the easiest way to carry my food to the table – a tray with a plate would fall”. And much of the medical equipment he relies on is also plastic, however Maioro – who was born with spina bifida – said that doesn’t stop him making changes where he can. “I thought I would make the effort because we want to keep the wildlife for our next generation, and our clean green image. “It’s a mindset shift to ditch the plastic,” he added, saying that overseas he has seen peeled oranges wrapped in plastic in supermarkets, which he described as “crazy”. Maioro doesn’t drink hot drinks, so keep an eye out on his Facebook page – he will be giving the keep cup away before the end of the month. Cambridge News also has a Brew Keep Cup and a set of stainless steel straws to give away during July.

For example, shampoo suds will mix with bodywash and conditioner residue, and who knows what that will do when it’s inhaled in the form of shower steam. She also took aim at Triclosan – an antibacterial agent that has now found its way into everyday products, including Colgate Total toothpaste. The results from an electronic LUMI survey at the workshop – using small remotes for voting – council found that before the workshop, only 16 per cent of the 37 attendees felt 100 per cent comfortable making their own products at home, a number which jumped to 74 per cent by the end of the presentation.

Well-known Cambridge wheelchair athlete Maioro Barton has thrown his support behind Plastic Free July, signing up to be one of four locals taking the Waipa District Council’s Top 4 challenge this month. In return for sharing his journey on social media, Maioro received stainless steel drinking straws, a cotton tote bag, a water bottle and a keep cup from council – the top four easy ways to cut out the plastic. The issue had already been on his
mind before Maioro was contacted by council’s waste minimisation officer Sally Fraser. “I didn’t have to think about it, I just said ‘yes’.” He’s already made some changes over the years, trying to cut down his consumption of plastics. One simple change he’s made is swapping body wash in a plastic bottle for a good old-fashioned block of soap that comes in a cardboard box. Same result, no plastic bottle. A self-confessed lover of fizzy-drinks, Maioro said he has also switched to buying one large bottle instead of numerous
It was a full house in the Victoria Room at the Town Hall on Saturday, as locals gathered to find out how to make their own cleaning products at a twohour workshop. The MAKE workshop was run by Di Millow from the Dairy Farmer’s Daughter, in conjunction with the Waipa District Council. Council’s waste minimisation officer Sally Fraser said they had been pleased with the response to the workshops, which were run in Cambridge and Te Awamutu. “It’s great to see so many people in Waipa interested in making their own products. Homemade products are simple, help cut down on the amount of plastic packaging we buy and give us the chance to reuse containers we already have,” Sally said. “If each attendee made every product they learned about, they could each replace over 30 commercially packaged products every year. For the whole group that’s over 1,200 plastic containers,” Sally added. Participants were given a recipe sheet and a pack of ingredients to make their own moisturiser at home. Recipes included washing powder, dishwashing powder and flowing soap, as well as lip balm, deodorant spray and toothpaste. Not only was there a focus on the reduction of plastic, but the workshop also emphasised the health benefits of eliminating chemically-laden products from the home.

National accolade for manager A long-standing staff member of St Peter’s Cambridge has been nationally recognised for his service. Business Manager Marc Scott received the Service to School Leadership award at the Independent Schools New Zealand National Conference in late June. Marc represented St Peter’s as part of the successful Waikato/ BOP bid which saw the Avantidrome constructed on the school site. The Avantidrome is a worldclass cycling facility that was officially opened by the Prince and Princess of Wales in 2014, following a governmentled tender process for the development of a National Cycling Centre of Excellence. Marc was also a driving force behind the Perry Pool - an indoor heated pool which is not only home to St Peter’s swimming academy and other competitive swim squads, but also hosts “learn to swim” lessons for pre-schoolers. “It’s been great to
be part of so many exciting projects over the years,” Marc said. “I enjoy working with the
various parties within both St Peter’s and the community, to take these opportunities forward.”
Leadership award for young local Karapiro School student Olivia Emmett was recognised for her allround excellence recently when she received the 2018 Sir Peter Blake Young Leader Award. Paul Evans of Westpac Bank visited the school to present the prestigious award, which each year recognises one young person from anywhere in the country whose leadership stands out in their school and community. Karapiro School Principal Tina-Maree
Thatcher said Olivia is very much a worthy recipient of the award, “because of her ability to inspire and lead others, and her diligence and focus on her schoolwork and sporting endeavours” she said. “Olivia exemplifies the best of the qualities and attributes that we aim to instil in Karapiro School students. We are very proud of Olivia and her achievements and we are privileged to enjoy her positive influence in our learning environment.”

Mons Bennett marks 50 years
By Viv Posselt
Whichever way you look at it, 50 years or half a century is a significant landmark – be it in a career, a marriage or in any form of partnership. In Monsignor David Bennett’s case, it’s a little of all three. Last month marked the 50th anniversary of his entry into the priesthood, the commemoration of his ordination as a Catholic priest at
A much-younger David Bennett during his early years in the priesthood.
Auckland’s St Patrick’s Cathedral on June 28, 1968. He was a fine-looking man of 25 back then; now he’s a silver fox, happily retired in the company of his devoted Swedish Vallhund, Aneke. Casting a glance back in time, it’s probably inevitable that David entered the church – the only question at the time might have been “which one?”. His grandfather, Bishop Frederick Augustus Bennett – born in Rotorua in 1871 to parents of Maori/Irish descent – became New Zealand’s first Anglican Maori Bishop in 1928. Family records tell of a much earlier Bennett Methodist minister in Ireland, and out of Bishop Frederick’s 19 children born across two marriages, one became the Anglican Bishop Manuhuia ‘Manu’ Bennett. He was David’s uncle. David himself was born and educated in Hamilton in 1943, a ‘delicate baby’ whose family home was shared with several boarders, Māori nurses working at the hospital. After his mother died when David was still very young, his father remarried, and one of their sons went on to become a Baptist pastor in the United States. In encouraging the young David to accompany her to church, it was perhaps his Catholic stepmother who sparked a shift away from his Anglican heritage. “I suppose you could say the church was in my DNA. My middle name (Tiwha) loosely translates to ‘sign of the
heavens’ and I used to ‘play church’ as a child,” he said. “Certainly, I’ve never regretted the path I chose, and my family has always supported it.” After three years at the Holy Name Seminary in Riccarton, he went on to complete a theology degree at the Holy Cross College in Mosgiel. He later returned to the College, taking up a teaching position in an environment which saw Presbyterians, Anglicans and Catholics attend lectures together, further encouraging the ecumenical principles he still espouses today. After his ordination, David served in parishes in Auckland, Rotorua, Tokoroa, Te Awamutu, Hamilton and Cambridge. He both ministered and
taught seminary students at Mosgiel and travelled widely. He’s a great admirer of the Catholic church’s strong ethos and has high praise for Pope Francis, a man he describes as having ‘a lovely touch’ with people around the world. Cambridge knows David through his 13 years at St Peter’s Church. Now fully retired, he catches up with parishioners at church when he attends weekend mass. But as the established Bennett family historian, he keeps busy with that - and with Aneke - basking in the prime view he enjoys from his Resthaven cottage. “You see,” he smiled, glancing skywards. “It pays to have friends in high places.”

New chairman for local trust By Viv Posselt
Dr Lloyd Buscomb has decided that a steady hand on the wheel is the best way to go after picking up the Cambridge Health and Community Trust (CHCT) reins last month. The Cambridge chiropractor was elected CHCT chairman at the Trust’s annual meeting on June 20, following Rosemary Hill’s departure after more than two decades at the wheel. “I think Rosemary was there for 25 years. I’ve told them not to expect me to stay there for 25 years!” he laughed. “But I have to say she will be a hard act to follow. Rosemary took this from a fledgling organisation with no money and no direction, and built it into a thriving business and an essential part of the Cambridge community. “Rosemary’s a very selfdeprecating person, but she has done such a tremendous job that there is very little I need to do right now other than continue on the same path. I see it as a period of consolidation. Our buildings are old, which means a lot of maintenance is required. We’d like more capacity, and
it would be good to see more community groups getting involved.” He said the organisation had been “very fortunate with the charities and grants that have allowed us to stay afloat” and said there would be more opportunities down the line. June was a month in which Lloyd found validation across a couple of fronts. Not only was he elected CHCT chairman after 10 years as a trustee, but he was also named New Zealand Chiropractor of the Year by the NZ Chiropractors Association (NZCA), recognising his “tireless devotion and long-standing service to the NZCA and the chiropractic profession”. Lloyd served on the chiropractic registration board for seven years and is the NZCA’s current vicepresident. After gaining his degree in 1983 from RMIT University in Melbourne, he moved to Napier, bought a small practice and met his wife Cheryl. Later on, the Buscombs relocated to Cambridge, where they started the Waikato Chiropractic Clinic from scratch in 1987.
The couple was involved in Jaycees in both Napier and Cambridge, and have taken on additional community roles over the years. Lloyd has been a past president of both Cambridge Toastmasters and the Athletics Club, was involved with the Cambridge Social Services Committee, was on the executive committee of the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce in its foundation years, and has enjoyed a long involvement with Gaslight Repertory Society. Those links, and his 10 years as a Cambridge Health and Community Centre Trustee have brought much satisfaction. He described the charitable organisation as a “very successful model…one that benefits from a great team effort involving equally civically-minded people and assisted by our recently appointed manager, Deborah Knowles”. “I always maintain that you get far more out of being involved in community organisations than you give in terms of time and service,” he said. “What you learn though connections with civic life is invaluable.”
Local chiropractor Lloyd Buscomb has replaced Rosemary Hill as chairman of the Cambridge Health and Community Trust.

Local artist makes the finals, again By Viv Posselt
THE ‘YES’ STORY
I set up Yes Mortgages in 2007, after starting in the Mortgage Industry in 2004 when my wife and I moved to Cambridge. We have brought up our 5 children here, who are aged from 6 years to 15 years old. It has been a privilege to work with hundreds of clients in Cambridge, the Waikato and beyond over the last 14 years. I see every clients situation as being unique and personal to them. Every client is different and I will try and tailor their loan and what I can do for them, to suit their needs. I believe people should be treated the same, whether they are doing a $20,000 loan or a $1,020,000 loan. As the Director of Yes Mortgages, the three key areas of my business are integrity, confidentiality and approachability. As a client, you deserve to be treated with respect and to be able to trust your advisor. You share financial information with me that is private and this should be kept confidential. You should be able to contact me when it suits you and have an advisor who is friendly and understanding. These are the things I will strive to do for you. I am a Registered Financial Advisor and a member of the Professional Advisors Association. I look forward to helping you with your mortgage needs in the future. Gavin Lynch – Director, Yes Mortgages.

Cambridge artist Cara Fotofili has been selected as one of 72 finalists for the prestigious 2018 Parkin Drawing Award. The national drawing competition, which was launched by philanthropist and arts patron Chris Parkin six years ago, attracted 463 entries. The top prize is $20,000, and there are 10 highly commended prizes of $500 each. Cara’s work, entitled Clear Air Turbulence #2, is a swirl of stippled dots done in her preferred contemporary abstract style. She now heads to Wellington for the July 16 announcement of the winners, and where her work will be showcased with that of the other finalists in a New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts exhibition, running from July 17 to August 19. Surprised and delighted, she said: “This is a very well-known competition, but it’s not one I have entered before. I just thought I’d try it this year. It’s very flattering to find myself among the finalists.” While Cara considers herself an artist first and foremost, for the past year she’s been fitting art around her job as a support worker for those with disabilities. “Before that, I worked as a full-time artist for seven years, and I’ll go back to art full-time again as soon as I can.” Some of her pieces have been shown in regional galleries, and Cara has entered work into a couple of other major art competitions this year. One was the 2018 National Contemporary Art Award at Waikato Museum, and the other the New Zealand Painting and Printmaking Award in Hamilton Gardens, where she placed in the finals with a watercolour embellished with gold dust/leaf, entitled No Fixed Abode. The Dunedin-born artist inherited her creative gene from her artist dad. “He encouraged us to draw from a very early age. It’s something I kept going back to, but life interfered with my desire to follow my passion.” Marriage to a Pacific Islander took Cara to a remote Fijian island for 15 years. She busied herself raising
Cara’s work, Clear Air Turbulence #2, has won her a place in the finals in the 2018 Parkin Drawing Award. a family but struggled to keep up her art because of the difficulty in accessing materials. It was only when they came back to New Zealand some nine years ago that she started again. Then, in one of the ‘spur of the moment’ decisions she says sometimes drive her, she enrolled at Wintec at age 60. She spent five years training in media arts, completing a master’s degree. “It was my “life begins at 60” thing,” she said. “Having been self-taught, I really wanted to see how well I could do in a formal environment. Perhaps it was a validation of sorts. Either way, I enjoyed every minute of it, and I learned heaps.” Cara still experiments with her art, but for the moment has settled on the unusual use of dots that now feature in most of her work. “I suppose the word ‘esoteric’ would describe the way I paint,” she said. “My work relates to the way I think about the world – I try and imagine the fundamental sort of place everything emerged from. My paintings all have that element to them.”

Total luxury with grunt
Always keen to try new things, Cambridge News editor Claire Castle got to try out a new Volkswagen Amarok V6 Aventura for the weekend… I was excited to get to try out a ute – I’ve never driven one before – and considering my regular car is a 2001 Toyota Camry station wagon with the ceiling upholstery held on by gun staples, it wasn’t going to take much for it to feel like a big jump in luxury. I was not disappointed, and frankly I feel that I was born to drive such a luxurious vehicle. There were a number of things that I really liked about it. It has a reversing camera (of course) and sensors along the sides, which give you a warning if you get too close
to something. It shows up on the dashboard display which makes it so easy to navigate. It’s a big vehicle, with a presence on the road, but somehow that didn’t seem to make it hard to park. I also really liked being able to chuck stuff on the back – perfect for bikes – and I was impressed that the water seemed to drain away really quickly after the night’s downpour. It was high, as well, but not so high that mum couldn’t get into it, and the kids managed it fine as well. I took it for a

spin out to Raglan on Sunday, and it handled the corners like a dream. Sometimes in a high vehicle it can feel as though it’s got a really high centre of gravity around corners, however it was not the case at all. It was smooth around all the corners and, being a V6, had great pickup. It says it has a “masculine design” in the blurb, and I’m not sure what that means
exactly, but as a woman I was very comfortable driving it. It’s the kind of vehicle you could use for work and also take the family away on holiday in. There weren’t really any downsides with this ute, apart from having to give it back, although some passengers remarked that there was an echoey acoustic in the cab – which is certainly not a major.
It can do all the grunty ute things you would expect and more, but can also function really well around town. It also apparently has permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive, so it can switch from on road to off road in the blink of an eye. It is one seriously cool vehicle, and I was sad to part with it. The ute was supplied courtesy of Ebbett Volkswagen in Hamilton East.

After weeks of dedicated rehearsals, the Cambridge Middle School production of Shrek Jr The Musical was a resounding success when students performed it to the public last week. “The students did a fantastic job in their rendition of Shrek Jr,” said the show’s director Tracey Andrews. “They spent over 10 weeks rehearsing and delighted audiences with funny lines and wonderful singing. “They received many accolades from the audiences and everyone loved our beautiful dragon masterfully created by Trisha Honey and bought to life by our fabulous puppeteers. “A great way to end months of hard work.”

Refinancing Your Mortgage
Nicholas Jones and Bella Strawbridge.
By Gavin Lynch – Yes Mortgages Refinancing your mortgage is the process of changing your mortgage lending from your existing lender to a new lender. Refinancing is a common practice for any of these reasons: • You don’t like the lender you are with. You’ve experienced poor service, problems with staff, or high account fees. • You want to borrow more money but the lender won’t allow it. Perhaps you want to consolidate debt, borrow to purchase a rental property or a vehicle, or put working capital into a business. • You have ‘outgrown’ your existing lender and want to move forward. This is common for self-employed people with a growing business, or for investors with an increasing portfolio. • Your lender has asked you to refinance. You may be in arrears with mortgage repayments or you need to restructure your mortgage. Refinancing can involve costs such as break fees from the existing lender, solicitors’ fees, valuation charges etc, but we can help get cash contributions from your new lender to help offset these costs. At Yes Mortgages, we can outline the costs involved and find the best new lender to fit your current situation from the 25 or so different lenders available. In most instances, our service is FREE to you. Generally the benefits of refinancing outweigh the costs involved but bear in mind: Refinancing your mortgage must benefit and add value to YOU. Let us do the work to find you the best lender for your situation.

By Eunice Eccles, Cambridge Bridge Club The first ever broadcast of The Bridge Zone was aired on Wednesday 27 June. The Bridge Zone aims to raise awareness, encourage people to take up the game and engage existing bridge players in their banter and repartee. Cambridge Bridge Club member Jane Stearns initiated the idea, asking for volunteers to front up on the radio. Hamilton Bridge Club members Barry Jones and Mereana Cullen heeded the call, and the pair have teamed up with other local bridge players to broadcast the show on Free FM89, hosted by Community Access Radio. The crew of volunteers have since learned how to create and record a radio show, covering topics such as the overseas activities of the Bridge Blacks (the national bridge team) and the Bridge Jacks (the national youth team), a round-up of the bridge results at clubs around the region, as well as upcoming tournaments and results nationwide. They also discuss play techniques, improving card play and thought patterns, partnership systems, bridge etiquette and ethics – everything bridge-related is up for debate and discussion. Their weekly half hour programme is aired at 10.30am on Wednesdays and repeated at 6.30am on Thursdays on 89.0FM.

Fast Kiwi makes Italian debut
Thinking of Building? Come Talk to Us
By Sophie Iremonger Local superbike rider Dillon Telford has completed the first round of the Italian Superbike Championship series with a promising placing to start the season. Back at the lucky Mugello circuit where Dillon won the wildcard round last year, the racer managed to secure a 25th start position after the qualifying rounds, where just a few milliseconds separated him from the top 15. Despite having the lowest-horsepower bike in the field, he managed to finish 22nd out of the 40 riders. “Considering we were down on horsepower it was a great result,” said Dillon’s partner Jo Taylor, who handed in the reigns as his lead mechanic in last year’s series, this year taking on the role as manager and PR extraordinaire. “It was great in some ways that the bike was underpowered, as that meant Dillon had to ride harder than he ever had before and find the max limit, but not throw the bike down the track in the process. There was no possibility that the bike could be ridden any harder.”

Dillon Telford (right) races through the track in 36-degree heat. This year Dillon is racing with the Gabro Racing team – whom he won with at Mugello last year – riding a 2011 Aprilia Tuono V4 with 1000cc, up against the world’s best superbike riders with 24-horsepower superbikes (thanks to corporate sponsorship). “The field is much faster than we had predicted when reserving our spot in February, but this makes us fight harder,” said Jo. “It’s so impressive to watch him come from 70m behind the lead rider and still make the corner to take the position in frontback, it blew a few people’s minds watching it, it secured his name of the ‘Fast Kiwi’.” Towards the end of round two, a rider “high sided” his bike right next to Dillon (where the rear wheel loses and then regains traction, causing the bike to torque and flip the rider) – the bike went above Dillon’s head and landed vertical next to him, but luckily not into him. But it didn’t deter the Fast Kiwi, increasing his pace in round three to complete a 1.57.6 lap, his fastest so far. At one point in the next round, Dillon thought he was a goner when his bike’s rear slid out in a high side, throwing Dillon up and
over the handlebars, staring down at his front wheel. “Somehow he FIGURE 3.2.3 managed to save it and continue the race, but it caused a few riders to pass,” said Jo, who figured the higher handlebars of the Tuono stopped him from departing with the bike. “It was a lucky save, and he was able to fight back with riders through the circuit.” With an average top speed of FIGURE 3.3.1 284kph, and the best bikes riding an average top speed of 308kph, it was a fantastic result for Dillon to place 22nd overall – in 36-degree summer heat to top it all off. “The Gabro Racing Team is very pleased with the results and we can’t thank them enough for giving us this fantastic opportunity to ride for them,” said Jo. “We will help the team out in the following weeks to build up their 1100cc motor, in hope this will bridge the gap closer to the leaders. “We are heavily disadvantaged with only seeing these tracks for the first time last year, and not having theFIGURE huge 3.3.2 financial backing this year and nothing left to sell… We are ever so grateful to everyone who has joined our patreon.com/ tr20 webpage to assist with our team funding here.”

Successful weekend for cyclists By Sophie Iremonger The North Island Schools Cycling Championships wrapped up on Monday with some stellar results for our local riders. In total, Cambridge cyclists pulled in a massive haul of over 60 medals. Cambridge High School’s cycling coach Colin Dixon described the weekend as “incredibly successful”. “As coach I was extremely proud of the team,” he said. “They worked hard all weekend but were incredibly supportive of their teammates which pleased me just as much.” The Cambridge High cyclists collected a huge number of podium placings during the road racing rounds over Saturday and Sunday, with Jaxson Russell winning the under 15 boys road race, Matt Davis winning the under 15 boys criterium, Reuben Webster placing third in the under 17 boys criterium and Maui Morrison placing second in the under 14 boys criterium and third in the road race. “Our real success came at the track,” said Dixon, where the CHS girls were named as the top girls team overall. The senior girls – Nia Dixon, Summer Williams, Mya Anderson and Sammi Ogle – also won their under 20 team pursuit, and the latter two won the under 20 sprint. The senior boys – Matt Berry, Patrick Clancy and Reuben Webster – won their under 20 team sprint, and Reuben was named as the top under 17 boy. In addition, Mya Anderson and her sister Keisha were named the top under 17 and top under
15 girls respectively, Jaxson Russell was named top under 15 boy and Matt Berry top under 20 boy. The Cambridge High School boys also placed as the second top team, losingby a small margin to the St Peter’s boys team in first. “We are really proud with how all our riders performed over the three-day event,” said Fiona Carswell, Head of Cycling at St Peter’s School. The school’s team captain, Ally Wollaston won three gold medals in the under 20 division, taking first in the road race, criterium and Continued next page

Cambridge High School’s cycling team were all smiles after a successful weekend. Continued from previous page omnium. She also won every individual track event she raced in to take out the best overall under 20 women’s track title. “Being named best female track cyclist was very rewarding, as I can see the benefits of my hard training over the past weeks,” Ally said. “The large number of competitors in my field made for hard and fast racing which was great training for my build up towards Junior Worlds
in August.” Straight after the competition ended, Ally joined the rest of the NZ junior elite team for world champs training this week. Another St Peter’s student, Jack Carswell also won all of his individual track races to earn the overall under 16 boys track title, also winning two golds with the teams pursuits and team sprint, in addition to his six individual gold medals, including first in the under 16 boys road race and criterium.

Long day for footballing trio
By Josh Easby
Three Cambridge teenagers played a football marathon on the weekend, featuring in three matches that lasted more than five hours in total. Their testing Saturday began with a school match in the morning and was then followed by a league match for Cambridge Football Club and finally a knockout tie that went to extra time. Goalkeeper Oscar Thomas (17), Willem Dikmans (17) and Kieran Vollebregt who turned 16 at the weekend love their football but hardly expected their day would be so demanding. After playing for Cambridge High School’s first XI against St John’s in the morning (an 8-2 loss), the trio turned out for Cambridge in their Loaded WaiBOP Championship match against Otumoetai. Despite two goals from Peter Buesnel, Cambridge lost that match 3-2 after leading 2-1 with only 20 minutes to go at John Kerkhof Park. As soon as that game was over, the three players were available to play for Cambridge’s D1 team playing a Waikato Plate quarter final against Te Aroha Cobras. That match finished 4-3 to Te Aroha after a gruelling two-hour tie that included half an hour extra time when the sides were level 2-2 at the end of normal time. Te Aroha had started strongly, quickly taking a 2-0 lead, but the D1s fought back and with goals from Scott Jenkins (penalty) and Ben Ward, they forced extra time. Te Aroha took a 3-2 lead in the first spell of extra time and then appeared to put the result beyond doubt when scoring again with eight minutes of the extended match to go. Cambridge’s Vollebregt celebrated his birthday by finding the net in the dying minutes to set up a thrilling finish. Both teams had late chances to score and Cambridge forced a series of corners, but to no avail. Cambridge’s women’s team fared better in knockout competition, beating Tokoroa 3-2 at John Kerkhof Park to earn a place in the semi-finals of this year’s Waikato Women’s Cup. The Hill Homes Player of the Day
Cambridge goalkeeper Oscar Thomas (grey shirt) in his third game of a busy day. was 19-year-old Caitlyn Varcoe whose hat-trick spearheaded the Cambridge win. Cambridge has a strong record in cup competition, having won the women’s cup in 2014 and been beaten finalists in 2013 and 2015. Meanwhile, a 2-1 loss to Auckland rivals Metro FC has left Cambridge’s first team contemplating a tense finish to the Lotto NRFL second division season. The points lift Metro clear into midtable but leave the Reds within reach of a pack of sides fighting to get clear of the league’s relegation zone – and other results didn’t help. Ngongotaha beat Claudelands Rovers 5-2 to get clear of the division’s two relegation spots while Onehunga Mangere United beat Te Atatu 2-0, meaning the lower half of the table is becoming tighter by the week. Cambridge went a goal behind from a Metro corner late in the first half at Phyllis St when Josh Chemis scored. The Aucklanders doubled their lead in the 81st minute through Josh Dayal before Cambridge defender Jack Portegys scored his second goal of the season to reduce the deficit with three minutes left. That’s how the score remained, and Cambridge now have six games left – four of them to be played away – to
make sure the club doesn’t drop into the two relegation places. Other results In the reserves league, two goals by leading scorer Andrew Taylor and another by substitute Alex Mukaka ensured Cambridge reserves kept their eight-match unbeaten run with a 3-3 draw at Metro FC in Auckland. Cambridge were never behind in the match, but Metro kept fighting back to prevent the competition leaders from bringing home the points. Taylor put the Reds ahead in the 19th minute with his 17th goal of the season.
He soon after added a second and Cambridge looked set to maintain or increase their five-point lead at the top of the Lotto NRFL second division reserves table. However, Metro came storming back with two goals before half-time, sending the teams into the interval at 2-2. In the second spell, substitute Mukaka found a third goal for Cambridge but again Metro found the net to share the points. The club’s Waikato A and Waikato D2 teams had byes.

Leamington colts steal the win Senior A vs SURF Leamington started slowly with only a penalty to show for the first half. SURF (Southern United Rugby Football Club) created pressure and converted to points, 24-3 by half time. Leamington responded well to a half time rev up and started making the opportunities stick. A try each to Malakai Uasi and Carl Nelsen, a drop goal to Jared Allen Baker, and three penalties and a conversion to Regan Erueti put Leamington right in the game. Surf scored one second half try. Hammering hard at the line for last five minutes left Leamington close but
not close enough and Surf won 29-24. Player of the day was Todd King. Senior B vs SURF A tough day at the office for the Bs against SURF. Tries by Mick Wright and Matt Kennedy were Leamington’s only scores, in a 25-10 loss. Player of the day was Karl Bolton. Regal Agriculture Under 21 Colts vs Hamilton Old Boys A close-fought battle away at Hamilton Old Boys grounds. Two tries by Connor Muir, one for Liam Rickwood and three conversions by Robert Day was enough to seal the win 21-17. Player of the day was Liam Nelley.

The humble cauliflower has made a comeback. Health-conscious foodies everywhere are dicing, blitzing and roasting cauli following the new lowcarb craze. For vegetarians and vegans alike, cauliflower has become a common staple cooked in all sorts of unconventional ways. And numerous meat eaters, with Paul McCartney’s encouragement, have swapped to meatfree Mondays with roasted whole cauli – drizzled with olive oil and

sprinkled with dried herbs and/or paprika – a popular menu choice. Blitzing cauli finely makes it a replacement for couscous or rice. It’s so popular even the rice industry is worried. ‘Cauli rice’ takes three minutes to cook whereas traditional rice can take up to 20 minutes. And there are far fewer carbs. And blitzing cauli extra finely can make ‘cauli-flour’ for pizza bases. In the USA commercially prepared cauli pizza bases are available frozen.
CAULI-BASED FETA PIZZA The base is not as crisp as a traditional one but it is very tasty. Cauli Pizza Base: 300g cauliflorets 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese freshly ground black pepper to taste Topping: 2 tablespoons tomato paste 150g reduced-salt feta cheese, crumbled 6 small tomatoes, halved 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese 6 pitted Kalamata olives, chopped 1 teaspoon dried oregano fresh herbs to garnish Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the florets in a food processor and blitz until they resemble very fine breadcrumbs. Place in a clean tea towel and squeeze dry. Tip into a bowl. Add the egg, oregano, parmesan cheese and black pepper and mix well. Place the mixture on the baking paper and press it into 1cm-thick round. Bake for 15 minutes, until crispy. Spread with the tomato paste, feta cheese, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, olives and oregano. Bake for about 10 minutes. Serve garnished with fresh herbs. Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a light meal with salad.
CAULI, CAPSICUM & CORIANDER FRITTERS
Cauli is also great mashed with great dollops of cream and butter to make ‘fauxtatoes’ although the fat content may upset one’s calorie intake. Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin K and folate. It also contains fibre, B vitamins, many other vitamins and minerals and only five carbs per 100grams. Cauli is a member of the brassica family that is thought to inhibit some forms of cancers.
ROASTED CAULIFLOWER SLICES Any leftovers can be chopped and added to salads. 1/2 medium head cauliflower 3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil flaky sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 3-4 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese Preheat the oven to 190°C. Lightly oil a roasting pan. Trim the cauli and cut into 5mm-thick slices from the top to the base. Place evenly in the roasting pan and brush with the olive oil. Season, and turn the slices over and repeat the process. Bake for about 25 minutes – turning once – until lightly browned on the edges. Serve sprinkled with the parmesan. Serves 4.
Heat the oil until a faint haze rises. If you’re following a low-carb diet then replace the flour and water with 2 beaten eggs 3/4 cup self-raising flour 1 teaspoon each: curry powder, diced chilli 1/2 teaspoon each: mixed spice, salt 1 small onion, finely diced 1/2-3/4 cup water 300g tiny cauliflorets 3/4 cup coriander leaves and stems, finely chopped 1 red capsicum, seeded and diced 4-5 tablespoons rice-bran oil Place the flour in a bowl with the spices, salt and onion. Add enough water to make to make a medium-thick batter. Add the cauli, coriander and capsicum just before frying. Heat half the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Take 2 tablespoons of the vegetable mixture to make each fritter. Fry in batches on medium heat until the base is golden. Flip over and continue cooking until golden. Flip over once again and check for doneness. The cauli should still be a little crisp. Drain on paper towels and keep warm in the oven while preparing the remaining fritters Great served with yoghurt combined with finely chopped mint. Serves 4.

"We're proud of the quality of our coffee" – teagan Not many baristas brave the early morning winter cold to cater for coffee aficiandos, but Teagan Fitzgerald has a presence on Victoria Street from 5.30am onwards, Monday to Friday, making sure tradies, commuters and other early birds get their favourite brew. Although new to the barista business, Teagan has a background in the hospitality trade. She bought Solar Coffee together with her partner Josh Evans four months ago on the recommendation of Josh's mother who visited the cart daily and knew a good opportunity when she saw one. The ethos of Solar Coffee appealed to Teagan and Josh. The eco-friendly business is solar powered and sources its organic beans from Guatemala, via Trade Aid. They roast the beans themselves and also sell locally-made glutenfree muesli bars. The cart is open week days from 5.30am-1.00pm.
In pursuit of the perfect coffee St Kilda Café & Bistro has been open nearly a year now and we take great pride in our coffee. We use L’affaire’s Primo blend, and creamy organic local milk. Primo is a signature blend of the best coffees from Africa, Central and South America, expertly crafted after 26 years of being sold in cafes throughout New Zealand, including our very own. Our barista Lily is Cambridge based and works hard in providing a high standard of coffee and she’s been making coffee for the past 6 months. Lily loves the creativity you can bring to each cup, and strives to challenge herself to learn new latte art. We are really serious about the process of crafting a perfect coffee, people don’t realise just how complex being a barista can get! 19 Kaniera Terrace Cambridge, 3493. Call us on 07-827 3993 to book a table! Opening Hours: Mon-Tues 8am-4pm; Wed-Thurs 8am-9pm; Fri-Sat 8am-10pm; Sun 8am-9pm

Huge victory for Hautapu
Thomas Orr on his way to the try line supported by Daniel James and Alex Kennedy. Submitted by the Hautapu Sports Club Premier A Hosting Morrinsville sports in the last home game of the regular season, the team was looking to put together a good performance for their supporters and cement their place in the top four. Hautapu were expecting a tough encounter from Morrinsville after they got the win over Hamilton Marist the previous week and no doubt were looking to bag another win over a top-four team. This was not to be the case as Hautapu dominated the match in
every aspect of the game, scoring at every opportunity to hold a 33-0 lead at the break. This pattern continued in the second spell with Hautapu scoring a further 48 points to easily take the match 810, running in 13 tries and slotting 8 conversions. Next week we play Hamilton Old Boys in Hamilton and the winner will take the top seeding, going into the playoffs. The team would also like to congratulate Alex Graham for receiving his 50 premier games blazer on Saturday. Premier B It was our last second round

game at home with the opposition being Morrinsville. A number of players were away, injured or sick, making the coaches job a lot harder putting a team together. Some of the bench players turned up getting over colds, flus etc which showed great respect for the team. The game started on time but unknowingly to us Morrinsville were struggling to put a team together. The Development lads got into their stride immediately attacking at every opportunity and the tries started to come. The forwards drove it up, committing the opposition giving our backs plenty of space to score. With the changes made at half time a different team came out to play with a number playing out of their position. Hautapu relaxed a little which allowed Morrinsville to get their game under way. Hautapu’s Pat Tomsett playing half back then first five was awarded player of the day for his performance. Thomas Orr, back from a long layoff had a great game at full back. The damage was done in the first spell with a win to Hautapu 67-15. At Hamilton Old Boys on Saturday, see you all there. Thanks to our sponsors and supporters.
