All go for Armistice

Commemorations for Armistice kicked off on Sunday, with a WWI art exhibition at the Town Hall and a photographic display of the liberation of Le Quesnoy by Kiwi troops, one hundred years ago to the day on November 4. See page three for more. Photo by Michael Jeans By Claire Robson

A week of commemorations for Armistice got underway on Sunday, with crowds flocking to the Town Hall for a WWI art exhibition and a photographic display of the liberation of Le Quesnoy by Kiwi troops a century ago. There were games for the kids, face painting and a festival atmosphere as locals of all ages gathered to mark the occasion. Armistice in Cambridge organiser Julie Epps said it was an excellent turnout, with more than 600 free hot chocolates handed out over the course of the afternoon. “It was a great crowd,” Julie

said. Fonterra came to the party, donating 500 free ice creams for the event, which were enthusiastically received despite the chilly temperatures. “And Cambridge Lions were stars too on the night, as they always are, providing hot food from their caravan,” Julie added. Songstress Katie Trigg provided vocal entertainment, with songs from the era interspersed with more recent offerings as people checked out the 18 photographic boards around the plaza. At nightfall a four minute light and sound show premiered, using the Town Hall as a massive screen, telling the story of the liberation of Le Quesnoy. A French girl had been recorded

reading passages about the four-year occupation of the walled French town and its liberation by New Zealand soldiers, as footage and photos from the time were projected onto the hall. One week after the liberation of Le Quesnoy, on November 11, 1918, the Armistice was signed that ended World War I. Julie said there had been huge interest in commemorations this year, including this weekend’s Armistice in Cambridge, probably due to the fact it has been 100 years since the end of the war. The light and sound show will be running outside the Town Hall every night from 8.45pm until around 9.30pm on Sunday, November 11.

Parts of Cambridge have been resembling a war zone this week, with the annual outbreak of legal explosions around the place. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I am convinced that the fireworks are louder this year. Especially when they are set off between the hours of three and four in the morning, such as was the case on Saturday and Sunday mornings last weekend. Thank you, to whoever that was doing that. (I have some other stuff I would like to say, but this is a family paper). The usual petitions calling for a ban on the private sale of fireworks are flying about, but I wonder if this isn’t a symptom of something deeper. Are we all just getting more ensconced in our own bubbles, ignorant of the fact that other people are trying to live their lives in close proximity to us? Do we just not consider our neighbours at all? Is this the Internet’s fault? Can this world only be cleansed by fire? I don’t know, but it’s a shame, and I wish it wasn’t like that.

Editor I wish to congratulate Richard Meyers and his team, on their instigation and presentation of the Couch Conversation held in the Town Hall on the 28th October. The selection of our Leamington/Cambridge people gave opportunity for great listening and learning about how life happens. We need more of this to enjoy “our” identities to “shout out” our place in NZ in this friendly, casual, manner. Each guest speaker was motivational and entertaining, with Brendan Lindsay, a real personality, benefactor (and the rest). The Leamington Rugby Club deserve my mention, as the Leamington Community Charitable Trust, do. Just “well done” - do it again - there is plenty of material out there! Jenny Cowan Editor At a recent meeting of senior council members, those attending were assured that Lake Te Kō Utu would be top of the list for attention. In pre-European times water could be drunk directly from the lake. Indeed, 20 years ago ducks would regularly visit the lake. Not any more! The lake water is so riddled with bacteria that ducks and fish quickly die. The

In other news pertaining to explosions, apparently there will be quite a few happening at the Armistice in Cambridge at Karapiro this weekend, which is shaping up to be massive again this year. The people who run this event put in a phenomenal amount of time and energy into it, and I don’t know how they do it at the same time as Claire Robson running the rest of their lives. Julie Epps and Paul Watkins seem to be everywhere all the time, and they are exactly the type of people to get stuff done. They are two of the many people who have put a great deal of time and effort into making Cambridge a more interesting and vibrant place to live, and I reckon we are very lucky to have them.

Cambridge lake has become the cesspool of Cambridge! Large numbers of tourists are now visiting Cambridge because it is a wonderful town – but not to visit the lake! To restore Lake Te Kō Utu to what it originally was is going to take money and particularly time. That is why the lake restoration needs to start tomorrow! A comment from a Waipā councillor regarding the cost of the lake project and, in particular, the starting date would be greatly appreciated. Michael Cole Council responds: Yes, Council is actively considering next steps for the lake. It is a complex issue and different people have different views on what ‘improving water quality’ in the lake means. Council has been advised that desludging the lake is likely to be the most effective option, but it is very costly, so other options are also being considered. They include aeration, directing additional water flows, biological treatment and more. Councillors have directed staff to review the development plan for the lake and surrounds including water quality and the wider stormwater catchment. The review will require significant community engagement, including with Iwi who have a strong association with the lake. Any review will also need to detail costs, because any costs to improve Lake Te Kō Utu’s water quality will be borne by ratepayers.

Traders can stay By Claire Robson

After a nervous few months of uncertainty, mobile traders who park up by Victoria Square can finally breathe a sigh of relief, with a decision made on their future. Waipā District Council’s new Public Places Bylaw will come into effect on Monday, tightening up where and when mobile traders are allowed to operate in the district but not going with an initial proposal to ban them from parking beside Victoria Square. After consultation with the community and a petition that attracted hundreds of signatures over a few days, a limited number of traders will be allowed to continue parking in the popular spot during specific times. This has come as a relief to Jeff Rouse, owner of the Fish Van, who said it was good to see that common sense had prevailed. “It was a stressful time, faced

with not being able to trade there,” Jeff said, adding that losing the van’s wellestablished spot of eight years would have massively devalued his business. Extending thanks to customers and the community for their support, Jeff also praised Cambridge Community Board member Roger Gordon, who provided a submission to council in favour of letting the traders remain in the spot, describing him as “instrumental” in achieving the outcome. The proposed changes to the bylaw attracted 86 submissions along with four petitions in support of mobile traders, containing 988 signatures. The Bylaw will come into effect next Monday and will include a new clause that will prohibit traders from selling age-restricted products such as alcohol and tobacco, parking on berms or footpaths (unless expressly allowed by the permit) or blocking access to private property.

Once in a hundred years The haunting sound of bagpipes will ring out across Cambridge on Sunday, with solo pipers playing at the Hautapu Cemetery, St Andrew’s Church and the Cambridge Cenotaph in the early morning as part of a worldwide “Battle’s Over” commemoration. They will be three of 11 pipers from the Cambridge, Te Awamutu,

Hamilton and Te Kuiti pipe bands playing “When the Battle is Over” at 6am at locations across Waipā to mark Armistice Day. Cambridge and Districts Pipe Band’s pipe-major Bryan Mitchell said the chance to hear the pipers in the early morning will be a “one in a hundred years’ event”, with 6am being the traditional time of the

military reveille. After the early morning lament, the Cambridge Pipe Band, alternating with the Cambridge Brass Band, will be playing from 9.20am outside the clock tower in Cambridge. At 9.55am the Armistice Parade will start, travelling down Victoria St from the clock tower. A pipe band of 35 – 40 people

from around the country will be leading the parade, followed by a group of navy reservists, military veterans, two NZ Army vehicles, followed by a convoy of 6-10 historic military vehicles (most likely from WW2). The parade will finish at the Town Hall where the centenary service will begin at approximately 10.05am. There

Treasure hunters welcome By Poppy Wortman

There’s treasure to be discovered at this year’s Christmas Parade. Organisers decided to incorporate a treasure hunt this year to add an extra element of fun, with hidden items – likely to be cheeky kiwis - in window displays of retailers around town. And there are two kids’ bikes up for grabs thanks to Evolution Cycles. Entry forms can be collected from Evolution Cycles or Paper Plus from Monday November 26, so homework can be done to plan strategies and routes to claim the bounty. The hidden items will be in place from 10am on the day, with entrants needing to find five out of ten to be into win. Destination Cambridge CEO Miff Macdiarmid said the idea is to create more of an atmosphere and to give participants something to do while they wait for the parade to start. “People can park up earlier and pop around town. It extends the festivities further,” she said. “And it also acts a as a reminder to everyone that retailers are still open; often there is a perception that because the road is closed shops will be too, but it’s not the case. Cambridge is very much alive!” The parade is coordinated by Destination Cambridge

will be a two-minute silence at 11am, marking the fact that the Armistice was officially declared on the 11th hour of the 11 day of the 11 month in 1918. Wreathes will be laid at the cenotaph while the band plays. Then the band will then head to Karapiro for the Armistice events out there, where they will play at 12pm.

and made possible thanks to the major sponsor, Cambridge New World, and grants from Pub Charity and the local Cambridge Community Board. Additional category sponsors are Kaz Design and GW Scott & Associates. Volunteers from Cambridge Rotary, New World Cambridge, Waipa District Council and the Cambridge i-SITE will provide the 50-body person-power to ensure Health and Safety in crowd control make it a safe event for families. The New World Cambridge Christmas Parade is scheduled for Sunday, December 2, at 2pm.

Fashion designers best in NZ By Sophie Iremonger

It was three for three in 2018 for Cambridge Middle School at the HETTANZ (Home Economics and Technology Teacher’s Association of New Zealand) Student Fashion Awards – with CMS students winning the top two places in the Juniors’ division three years in a row. This year it was Freya Kardas who took the first-place spot for her long jumpsuit,

closely followed by Mackenzie Barnett with her jumpsuit receiving “highly commended” – formerly referred to as second place in the competition. The girls were part of a group of ten CMS students who have been working on garments throughout the year. Guest judges visited the school to select the top two for final judging, and those picks ended up being the best in the country for Year 7 and 8 students.

For her winning entry, a long navy and cream striped jumpsuit with a goldbuckled blue belt, Freya will receive a Bernette sewing machine, which she’s excited to start using for her own creations. The Year 8 girls were quite surprised with their victories, noting that all ten students in their creative textiles extension group made excellent garments. “We all helped each other,” said Mackenzie, who made a short

jumpsuit with black and white squiggle fabric, matching black buttons and black rick-rack trim. “Once we got the hang of it, it was easy.” The girls’ creative textiles teacher Catherine Bell said she couldn’t believe it when the school won the competition for the third year in a row. “I’m so thrilled for the girls,” she said. “They worked really hard, all of them, and worked really well as a team.”

Cambridge hairdressers Petra Ayers and Anna Hastings will be rubbing shoulders with television’s “who’s who” at the industry’s glitzy annual awards event later this month, working their magic on the hair of presenters and the “talent”. Invited by awards’ sponsor Fudge, Petra and Anna’s salon, Hair on Duke, was the only salon approached for the New Zealand Television Awards which will be held on November 22 at the Civic Theatre in Auckland. The local hairdressers will join two Fudge staff members, making the participants look their best in 45-minute rostered styling appointments. The dynamic hairdressing duo said they were thrilled and excited to be part of the event, with Anna adding it was good to be pushed out of their comfort zones. “It’s always good to keep yourself challenged,” she said, adding that they feel “very lucky” to be given the opportunity to take part. Neither hairdresser watches television, so they are unsure of what to expect on the day, but Petra’s husband Jacobus is keen for them to get a selfie with the crew from The Crowd Goes Wild.

The awards night comes just after Hair on Duke celebrated its first birthday, with Petra adding that maybe part of the reason they were chosen from so many salons was the “positive vibes” they have aimed to cultivate in their new business.

Quickfire News One more seat at council table

It’s official - Cambridge voters will vote for five Waipā District Councillors at the 2019 local body elections instead of the current four seats. The extra Councillor has been added to comply with the Local Electoral Act. Cambridge voters will also be asked to choose an extra member for the Cambridge Community Board, making six board members in total. One member will continue to represent Maungatautari. The change means there will be five Cambridge ward councillors and four Te Awamutu ward councillors after the October 2019 election. Two rural wards – Kakepuku and Maungatautari – will continue to have one representative each. The third rural ward, Pirongia, will continue to be represented by two elected members. No appeals against the proposal were received.

Discovery Centre is Te Ara Wai

The $12.4M Waipā Discovery Centre in Te Awamutu will now be known as Te Ara Wai, meaning ‘the path of memories’. The name was researched and proposed by the Waipā District Council’s iwi engagement advisor Shane Te Ruki, and approved in a council vote recently. In a report to the committee, Te Ruki shared the meaning of the name as a reference to where we have come from and where we are going. “The name must resonate with the Waipā district and the story of our land. Te Ara Wai’s most direct translation is ‘the path of memories’ but it means so much more than that,” explained Te Ruki. “Ara is to rise, to be awake to our past and have our eyes open to our future. Wai is representative of the water pathways across much of Waipā, it’s also reflective of who we were, who we are and who we will become.” The name will be supported by an English by-line that is yet to be decided on. Councillor Wilson voted against the Iwi engagement advisor Shane Te resolution. Ruki.


Volunteers welcome at RDA

By Sophie Iremonger

A “Show Day” at Cambridge Riding for the Disabled (RDA) on Saturday, December 1 will give the public a chance to see what this local organisation is all about – and provide the chance for potential volunteers to get a feel for what they do. Cambridge RDA, which has been providing therapeutic riding to the community for over 25 years, is made possible by the work of volunteers who donate their time each week. It operates every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning with about 60 children on their books, and with new year plans to add Friday mornings to their week, the organisation is in need of more volunteers. “The satisfaction you get out of it is enormous,” said Carol Penman, an RDA volunteer of 36 years and a Cambridge RDA volunteer for over six years. “You’re doing something for the children, and the community.” Vanessa Donnelly, Operations Manager at Cambridge RDA for the last three years and a volunteer for 13 years prior, held a similar affection towards the group. “We come for the horses, but we stay for the people,” she said, adding that the children get so much out of the work they do. “We’ve had first words spoken here from five-year olds who didn’t

speak …They just love being here.” Vanessa said volunteers don’t need to have any experience with horses, anyone from 14-years-old and up can get involved, as long as they’re fit enough to walk the horses and be able to react to them in an emergency. “You just need to have compassion and empathy,” she said, explaining that volunteer work could range from walking alongside the horses, leading them, supporting riders, to other odd jobs like working in the paddocks, cleaning out the holding pens or making morning tea. To find out more about Cambridge RDA contact Vanessa on 021 902 892, email nz or head along to the Cambridge RDA Show Day, 10am – 2pm at Cambridge Riding for the Disabled, 8 Alpha St, behind Gaslight Theatre.

Cat burglar on the prowl again By Sophie Iremonger

The Keightley family are still on the hunt for the owner(s) of a collection of socks and underwear that their cat, a prolific burglar, has collected over recent months. Archie, a two-year-old tabby, has been sneaking into people’s properties and homes in the dead of night and stealing their undergarments. “I really genuinely would not want anyone to think that it’s a person taking things off their line and feel a bit unsafe at home, because actually it’s our cat,” Archie’s owner Lynley Keightley said.

“He’s a very nice cat in many ways, but he is a thief.” Archie started about six months ago with their neighbours over the fence. “It was all funny and hilarious, and then one day we went and said, ‘hey, here are the latest socks’ and they said ‘those ones aren’t ours’, so we realised he had started going further afield. And our trouble now is that we can’t find the people,” said Lynley, who eventually turned to the Cambridge Grapevine Facebook page in a desperate attempt to find the rightful owner of their mysterious bundle of washing – which includes several identical men’s black

Archie hasn’t lost a wink of sleep over his midnight antics.

Neve and Sylvie Keightley with the bundle of washing their cat Archie has brought home.

Rio underwear, thick woollen men’s socks and as well as women’s and children’s socks –many of which Archie was courteous enough to bring in pairs. “He doesn’t play with them when he brings them back home, he just delivers them to us,” said Archie’s “dad”, his favourite person, Gerard. “We assume it’s a little love present for us,” Lynley said. “We’ll hear his cat flap going at 3am and he does this special meow which means that he’s got socks or undies.” Sometimes the socks don’t make it all the way inside, instead found snagged on the fence in the morning. “I really truly do want to find them (the clothing owners), because I feel so badly … it could be from the same place and I just haven’t knocked on the right door yet.” Archie has proven himself to be quite

an open-door, sharing sort of a cat, welcoming other cats inside to eat his food, and of course helping himself to other people’s homes, where he most enjoys sleeping on their roofs in the sun. He follows his human “sister” Sylvie down the road to Leamington School, and greets the students walking by, sometimes even joining them in class. But his favourite things to do are chasing string, playing fetch, and of course collecting socks. Lynley said she wanted to apologise to the neighbourhood on Archie’s behalf. “We would really like to reunite the owners with their stuff,” she said. Anyone living in the Leamington School / Carlyle St area who think they might be the owner of the missing garments is encouraged to email or phone 07 827 0005.

Agents chip in for pool Two Cambridge real estate agents have donated $6,000 from their property sales commission to support the Cambridge Pool project. Karen Grootscholten and Kelly Grice of Bayley’s Real Estate recently sold land on behalf of Waipā District Council that was earmarked to help fund the pool development. Both said they were only too happy to support the pool project and give back to the community. “The Cambridge community has Donations previously received include $400,000 from Trust Waikato, $300,000 from the Brian Perry Charitable Trust, $300,000 from the Lotteries Commission, $80,000 from ASB Bank, $80,000 from CR Developments, $100,000 from Frances Skeet Trust, $15,000 from Shoof International Limited, $20,000 from Shaw’s Wire Ropes and $100,000 from Cambridge Lions Club. An anonymous donor also dropped off a cheque for $20,000 to the Cambridge council office. A further $300,000 has been committed to the project but is not yet finalised.

always supported us and our business. We wanted to recognise that support by making a donation. As a swimmer and user of the Cambridge pool myself, it was a no-brainer!” Karen said. Kelly hopes other Waipā businesses will follow in their footsteps. “This is a great opportunity for local businesses to be part of something special for the community. “The pool is a fantastic facility for Cambridge and we’re proud to support it,” she said. Waipā mayor Jim Mylchreest said he continues to be blown away by local support for the project. “We are so grateful to Karen and Kelly for putting their hand up and being part of delivering what will be an amazing community asset. We have an incredibly supportive community and it is these donations that boost the project and help keep costs down.” The pool project has received $1.7 million in donations but there’s still a way to go, Mylchreest said. “We’re continuing to apply for grants and pursue opportunities for both cash and in-kind donations.


This is a true community-driven project and if other businesses would like to get on-board, our door is open to all and any support.”

Anyone who would like to donate to the project should get in touch with Council.

His own seat, and a mince pie

Hydraulic Hose Distributors


By Claire Robson

A relaxed social gathering at Lake Te Kō Utu on Sunday will be an opportunity for friends and family of colourful Cambridge resident Crispin ‘Cris’ Love, who died last year, to celebrate the installation of a park bench in his memory. His brother Robert Love described him as a great source of offbeat ideas, including proposing an annual Cambridge Nude Day and introducing water buffalo to Lake Te Kō Utu as a tourist attraction and to keep the weeds down. “Needless to say, few suggestions were ever taken up by the town, but he didn’t let that deter him. The image of him with giant chess pieces in front of the Town Hall during the Autumn Festival is an example of success. His view that the health benefits of weightlifting and the cerebral exercise of chess could co-exist with the notion of promoting Cambridge had taken form,” Rob said. The new seat has been placed on the left side of the lake from the car park, with gathering happening from 11am – noon on Sunday, November 11. Rob said that once, when he had asked Cris if there was anything he would like, he replied: “my own seat, a mince pie and the promise nothing will take either from me”. To that end, mince pies and warm Friends and well-wishers are invited to gather on Sunday at Lake beverages will be supplied, in memory of a true local Te Kō Utu at the new park bench installed in the memory of Cris character. Love, who died last year.

Thinking of renovating?

When you buy a house, it is important to look at a number of properties so you get the home that suits you. It is the same with your mortgage. You should look at the options so you get the loan that is best for you. That is my job ... finding the mortgage that best suits your needs and situation.

Another tasty morsel from Jan Last week, we missed off one of Jan Bilton’s fabulous recipes, and this one is a real beauty that is an achievable Christmas cake that sounds delicious – so here it is… SIX- INGREDIENT FESTIVE CAKE This light cake keeps well in a cool place for one month or it can be frozen. It’s also economical — no added butter or sugar. For a festive look, blanched almonds or glacé cherries can be placed on top before baking. 1kg mixed dried fruit 2 1/2 cups pineapple juice 2 teaspoons each: ground mixed spice, vanilla essence

3 medium eggs, lightly beaten 3 cups self-raising flour Place the fruit in a large mixing bowl. Add the pineapple juice and mixed spice. Soak overnight. Preheat the oven to 150°C. Lightly oil a 23cm cake pan and line with baking paper. Add the vanilla essence and eggs to the fruit then stir in the flour. Pour into the prepared pan. Smooth the top with a wet hand. Bake for about 2 1/2 hours or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove and cool. To add a little festive flair, the cake could be brushed with brandy or port while still warm.

This six-ingredient festive cake is sure to be a winner.

Over 50? Right size your house Free up your money Find your Freedom Stage 3 – Selling Quickly The 2-bedroom duplex Warwick, 3-bedroom duplex Victoria and 3-bedroom double garage luxury Hampton villas have proved very popular with over-50’s who are downsizing their homes to take advantage of the lifestyle benefits of living at Cambridge Oaks. Since our first residents moved in during April 2018, we now have more than 50 residents enjoying the growing community. If you are considering your move to a lifestyle village in the next 12 months, get in early to take


advantage of the well located Stage 3 houses near our planned facilities. The completed Village will comprise 205 homes designed for independent living, a luxurious Village Centre forming the social hub of the Village, and sought-after facilities for motorhome owners at ‘The Stables’ – parking, washdown/dumpstation areas, storage and recreation sheds. There is additional convenience next door with a commercial development that incorporates a proposed cafe/ bistro and 7-day superette.

The Freedom Difference While Freedom Lifestyle Villages are registered under the Retirement Villages Act (2003), providing full legal and financial protections, there are major points of difference in our model. Residents live independently in a safe, secure over-50s community of like minded people. No daily in-home support or medical care is provided - but all lawns, grounds and communal facilities are looked after by Freedom. Most significantly, Freedom provides for potential capital gain if it comes time to sell - based on the prevailing market value and not your original purchase price. This is unlike other retirement villages where your loss of ingoing equity can be substantial from the day you move in. Cambridge Oaks can be a very affordable option for you, but we do not compromise on house design, functionality or quality. Show homes are open for inspection every day, weekdays and weekends. Our lifestyle consultants can guide you through options and answer your questions about over 50s lifestyle living and the benefits of the Freedom model.

“We’ve met very good friends here who we enjoy going away on trips with. It’s a very friendly, social place. The village centre is a great facility. It’s just a great place to live and we’re happy here. We do a lot of travel in our motorhome and like that we can lock up and leave, and our house is taken care of.” Ross & Linda, Freedom residents, Papamoa Sands

“I recommend Freedom to my friends and family. It’s safe and secure, and you will never be lonely. The social aspect is fantastic. Buying at Freedom allowed me to free up cash – before, I just had my house. Now I have a nice little nest egg.” CN-091118

Qualifying in position two, Ross and his Total sent the Toyota driver into the side of the Holden of Lubricants Nissan Altima finished second in the opening race of the weekend behind Australian Jack Smith, before leading the young Aussie home in the final two races on Sunday. The final race of the weekend saw Ross lead for much of it, before an aggressive move by Smith saw him sneak by the Nissan Altima of Ross at the hairpin. Smith looked to cruise into the distance and take the win when catching a backmarker at the hairpin he was forced him wide onto the grass and allowed Ross to retake the lead with just two laps to go. For Ross, it was a satisfying way to start his championship campaign. “A good way to start the season. We actually could have had three wins, but we had a brake issue which hampered us, and let Jack by into the lead in that first race,” Nick said. “I have to give credit to the Hamilton Motorsports team, those two cars of Jack and Lance Hughes are hooked up and are fast. We had to fight all the way to keep in front of them, especially Jack. He’s very fast this year. “We’ve just got to work harder to stay ahead of them. “Jack was pretty aggressive in that last race, which is fine, that’s how you want it to be - hard close racing. Always searching for ways to make his Nissan Altima better, Ross says that despite they great result, there are still improvements to be made. “I’m not totally happy with the car, we seem to have lost a bit of the balance that we had towards the end Spring 2018 of last season. So we’ll work on that ahead of the next round.” With Ross, Smith and Hughes sitting first, second and third in the Championship currently, it is expected Cambridge driver Nick Ross has taken the lead of the BNT V8s Championship following round one at Pukekohe.

Cambridge’s John Kerkhof Park will host national league football again when some of the country’s top players visit on Sunday, November 18. Hamilton Wanderers will play Auckland’s Eastern Suburbs in a men’s national league and national youth league double header. Both clubs are among the early leaders in the ISPS Handa Premiership, New Zealand football’s top domestic competition. The match starts at 2pm. The curtain raiser at 11am will see rising stars in the National Youth League match between the clubs. The fixture gives local football fans the chance to check out international players such as All Whites Andre de Jong and Tim Payne who play for Eastern Suburbs, and Papua New Guinea striker Tommy Semmy who turns out for Wanderers. Payne, who is also the assistant coach of the Lilywhites youth team, has played 14 full internationals for New Zealand as well as representing his country at U-17, U-20 and U-23 level. He’s been on the books of top English club Blackburn Rovers and United States’ club Portland Timbers.

Working today for a cleaner tomorrow book today

Both teams will be led out by All White greats. Former All White legend Ricki Herbert – who is Cambridge FC’s Technical Director – is head coach of Wanderers, assisted by son Kale Herbert. Suburbs are coached by former All White captain Danny Hay, capped 31 times for New Zealand and a former professional with Leeds United, Walsall and Perth Glory. In the early match, Cambridge FC fans can support Reds players Josh Clarkin and Jack Portegys who are playing in the National Youth League for Wanderers. The pair will return to John Kerkhof Park for next winter’s Northern League campaign with the Reds.

TO MARK THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE END OF WW1 The military-themed event, Armistice in Cambridge, to be held at Lake Karapiro domain, will this year feature over 100 historic military vehicles, dating back to the First Word War, Second World War and Vietnam. This will include around 30 artillery

pieces including the famous 25-pounder and a Russian T34 tank (both pictured here), trucks, jeeps, armoured personnel carriers and many more.

MORE KIDSʼ FUN AT ARMISTICE IN CAMBRIDGE THIS YEAR At this weekend’s Armistice in Cambridge event, kids (of all ages) can try these fun and totally safe activities.

a Navy cutter, fire a Roman catapult, axe throwing, make a model aircraft for just $3 and take it home, ride in a steam powered boat, fire a crossbow, use a World War Two range finder and ride in a wartime jeep, among others. The activities are a huge amount of fun! They will run all day, both days at the event.

The Roaring Chorus

The programme is shown here and includes a “Roaring Chorus” just after 11:00am on the Sunday. This was what happened in 1918, once the end of the war was announced. People cheered, yelled, blew whistles, tooted car horns, banged on drums and cans, and made as much noise as they possible could! So, this year, the organisers want to replicate this. Come along on the Sunday with anything you can find that will make a noise. It is normal to observe one-minute’s silence at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, but as it was the end of the war, it was appropriate to make this two minutes. This is what will happen this year and be followed by the “Roaring Chorus”. Note that the programme may be subject to minor changes due to unforeseen circumstances.

BMX champions of the island By Sophie Iremongber

A 40-strong team of riders from the Cambridge BMX Club gave it their all at the North Island BMX Champs in Pakuranga recently, with 23 locals making their finals and eight winning their age groups. Bennett and Jack Greenough, Leila and Noah Walker, Tasman Wakelin, Jaylor Jenkins and Meg Cannon are champions of the North Island having dominated their divisions at the Labour Weekend competition that attracted 528 competitors. Several of them retained their title for a consecutive year, and a number were

undefeated across every race in the twoday competition. Also making the top three in their divisions were Logan and Greer Hall, both second in 14-year-old boys and 8-14 cruiser respectively, world champion Tim Ferguson second in 30-39 men, Stella Nelson second for 6-year-old girls, Beth Walker third for 8-year-old girls and Joel Runciman third in the Mighty 11 open class. It was no surprise that six-time world champion Leila Walker won the 13-yearold girls’ division, making her fifth North Island title. “I was pretty happy, I guess you can’t beat number one,” she smiled. Meg Cannon won her age group

Winter is over - now is the time to wash away the mould & treat for bugs

for the third year in a row, this year for eight-year-old girls. For 11-year-old Noah, it was his first time winning a North Island title. “I was stoked really, pretty happy when I crossed the finish line,” he said. It was 13-year-old Jack Greenough’s fifth year in a row winning a North Island title, and like his older brother Bennett, winner of the 15-year-old boys’ division (his second North Island title), it was a consistent day of racing with no losses across all races. “I was pretty happy with it, the track was pretty tight,” said Bennett, “but the ride was pretty good. It was a pretty cool atmosphere at the track.”

Jack’s nearest competitor was from Pakuranga, racing on his home track, making the win even tougher for him. “I didn’t have too much trouble, it was a little tough towards the final,” he said. “It was fun.” Absent on the day we caught up with the team were Jaylor Jenkins, winner of the six-year-old girls’ division, and Tasman Wakelin, 16-year-old boys’ winner. Bennett and Tasman will join their fellow local BMX Performance Hub rider Rico D’Anvers in heading to the American national championships later this month, where Jack, Leila, Greer and Logan will also compete.

After this year’s cancellation of the Battle of the Bridge event, organisers are seeking ideas from the community to revitalise the competition that has been running since 2011. Battle of the Bridge co-organiser Mark Nogaj said a meeting to be held next Wednesday will give locals the chance to have their say about the future of the event and will be followed by another public meeting in February. “Some of the strong ideas coming through is to include a wider age range in terms of added games, sports and events, and that’s definitely something

we will do,” Mark said. The competition – which has featured tug-of-war, rugby and netball – was called off this year due to a raft of injuries among senior rugby players. Mark said that ideally in the future the Battle of the Bridge will cater to a wider section of the community, possibly including a family fun day and a night-time function to raise funds for the community. The meeting will be held at the Leamington Sports Club on Wednesday, November 14, 7pm. Those unable to make it can email their ideas to

Bridge players win Waikato champs By Eunice Eccles, Cambridge Bridge Club Cambridge Bridge Club hosted the final event of the nine-month Waikato Bays Intermediate Bridge Championships in an effort to find the competition champions. Organised and sponsored by the Waikato Bays regional committee, players from clubs all over

the two regions competed to win the Barclay Bridge Cup. The final event at Cambridge was a huge success with 84 players participating. The room was full and there was a buzz of excitement. A fantastic spread of food, provided by the club, was prepared and presented by Cambridge members at lunchtime,

with food available all day and lovely tea with wine and nibbles available at the end of play. Although Cambridge players were in the lead there was still the opportunity for others to overtake them, but a strong morning session enabled Malcolm Kirkby and Eunice Eccles to keep the lead. Saty Satyanand and Calum MacLean came second

overall on the day and Liz Clayton and Gail Ebbett came top in the afternoon session. Our thanks to Nick Cantlon who directed, to all Cambridge club members and to Michael Neels from the regional committee who scored and presented the prizes. A fantastic day!

Trampers ascend Maungatautari

Morning session winners Eunice Eccles and Malcolm Kirkby with prize presenter Michael Neels (centre).

By Carol Lennon, Cambridge Tramping Club Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari was the order of the day when members of the Cambridge Tramping Club headed out on the Over the Mountain track. Fourteen members enjoyed the day taking in the superb mature native forest and listening to the bird life along the way. We started at the Tari Rd, Pukeatua entry. The track has been considerably upgraded since our last visit and this helped to reduce the time taken to complete the track. A reasonable fitness is required as the track has a long section going up and the grade varies from gradual to more challenging. We did a short deviation at the along a board walk to Maungatautari Peak and then back to the main track again. There is nothing quite like stopping for lunch and take in the beautiful scenery and putting the world to rights. We finished the day with a long descent and came out at Hicks Rd exit. We then did a short loop track before our support crew of van driver Greta and car driver Anne arrived to pick us all up. Great day, great company.

A regional secondary school competition has reinforced Cambridge’s reputation of producing excellent sportspeople. The Champion of the Codes competition is run by Wintec’s Centre for Sport Science and Human Performance, testing athletes from 13 Waikato secondary schools to find the most agile, powerful and fastest of them all, and two Cambridge students were declared the overall winners this year. St Peter’s Year 13 student Matthew Pollock took out the men’s division, with Cambridge High School Year 11 student Hinewai Knowles the women’s division winner. “I guess that’s the reason they call it the town of trees and champions!” said Matthew, a basketballer on the school’s men’s team. “I couldn’t really believe it, I didn’t even know that was going to happen,” said Hinewai, who keeps busy all year round with football, sailing and athletics. For their victory, the pair will each receive a prize of a special visit to Wintec’s Centre for Sport Science and Human Performance (CSSHP), where they will receive a one-on-one strength and conditioning assessment and a personalised strength and conditioning training programme at the Waikato Human Performance Hub. Contestants were scored on a ten-metre sprint, a vertical and a horizontal jump, and a 5-0-5 test. Wintec CSSHP academic Jako Bekker explained these assessed athletic abilities like acceleration, change of direction speed, power and technique. “This year we ran a successful pilot and next year we plan to sign up more schools,” he said. Cambridge High School’s sports coordinator Carl Hudson said the school was certainly up for the challenge again in 2019. “All our athletes put in their best effort and it is pleasing to see that we are right up there in the Waikato,” he said. “It is fantastic that our very own Hinewai Knowles took out the top female spot for Champion of the Codes, especially as she is a Year 11 student.” St Peter’s strength and conditioning coach Todd Barker said there is nothing like some healthy competition to inspire students. “We’re really proud of Matthew’s achievement,” he said.

One of Cambridge’s best-known artists, Carole Hughes, is now making her bold, colourful work available on placemats and coasters. The sets are smaller versions of her often very large paintings, many of which hang in galleries, homes and corporate premises throughout New Zealand and further afield. The long-time artist has made a name for herself over the past two and a half decades with a fauve art style of painting, using strong colour and bold strokes to bring to life scenes typical of many places she has visited across Europe, including France, Spain, Italy, Bosnia and Serbia. Until now, her works have been available mainly through galleries or through direct contact with Carole. The decision to put them onto placemats and coasters offers fans another way to exhibit her art into their homes. “I’m not sure how many other artists have done it, but it certainly makes the art more accessible,” she said. “The sets will be sold in packs of six – either placemats or coasters – with each pack being a mixture of my paintings. “They all have to be ordered in advance, so people do need to give me some notice. And if they want a pack of just one particular painting, they need to let me know.” The placemats and coasters will likely be a good fit for those looking for upmarket gifts for the upcoming Christmas and weddings season, with a uniquely Cambridge flair. Sets need to be ordered in advance, either through Carole’s website (www. or by phoning her on Local fauve artist Carole Hughes has broadened her range to 07-827 5727 or 021 401 951. include placemats and coasters – just in time for Christmas.

New Books

Sh*t Towns of New Zealand


Based on the Facebook page of the same name, this book hurls insults from one end of the country to the other. Pretty much nobody is safe, including Cambridge which is described as “a Superloo of epic proportions”, “home to one of the most pompous populations in the country”, as well as some other things that I can’t repeat in a family paper. So obviously they got that totally wrong, however some of the other entries are pretty funny, although I did think they went pretty easy on Morrinsville (I think Jacinda might have saved our neighbours a bit there). Te Awamutu was described as “basically Morrinsville for people who think teenage pregnancy is a career choice, or Cambridge for people who have given up”, and Hamilton as “a postapocalyptic wasteland built on a swamp, awash with feral bogans, brain-damaged boy racers and a plethora of STDs that make the Ebola virus look like a minor snuffle” – so it’s pretty scathing all round. It also includes lists of 10 things to do at some of the more major centres – such as eagerly await the embrace of death in Tauranga or watch a drunk woman urinate behind a dumpster in Hamilton. Handy. This book is available at Paper Plus, with a recommended retail price of $24.99. Cambridge News has a copy of Sh*t Towns of New Zealand to give away, just email sophie@ with your name and phone number, with ‘They were wrong about Cambridge’ in the subject line.

Critical Evidence

Season 2, available on TVNZ On Demand Long before he graced the big screen as the lovable half-giant half-human Rubeus Hagrid in the Harry Potter franchise, actor Robbie Coltrane appeared on telly back in the earlymid 90s as the alcoholic, chain-smoking, obese criminal psychologist Dr Edward “Fitz” Fitzgerald on the outstanding BBC crime drama Cracker. He returns to these roots in the documentary series Critical Evidence, available on TVNZ On Demand. Season two is available to watch now and consists of eight episodes of around 45 minutes each. I didn’t watch all of them, because a few of them didn’t capture my attention even

enough for a quick look. Plus I found it quite irritating how Coltrane would pause for dramatic effect before saying something like “what the police needed now was…critical evidence”. Yep, we get it, very clever (it felt as though he did that A LOT). The crimes they were investigating were generally not all that gripping either (although no doubt they were for the people involved), and I thought in a lot of ways they fell a bit flat with it. I’d probably give it a miss and check out Cracker on YouTube instead. It’s really good.

The Trade

Available on TVNZ On Demand love them. Awful. It was heartening to see the police are trying to change their approach over there, establishing a HOPE initiative to try and help those who survive an overdose (rather than punishing them). Looking at the carnage the drugs are wreaking on both sides of the border, I can’t help feeling that the only way to make inroads is to stop the demand and work more on why people become addicted. Because the supply seems to be inexhaustible, and because of the amount of money involved there will always be another person popping up when a manufacturer is locked up. And all from such a beautiful flower. Weird.

This five-episode documentary series into America’s heroin crisis was fascinating, scaring and heart breaking all rolled into one. It travels through the whole heroin supply chain with unprecedented access to all areas – from the poppy fields in Mexico right through to the suburbs in the Midwest where the drug is cutting a swathe through the population. Presumably NOT endorsed by the tourist board of Guerrero, Mexico, it looks at the turf wars and large-scale violence that accompanies heroin production in that part of the country. Trafficking is covered, and it is easy to see that trying to fight the tidal wave of the drug coming across the border must feel like trying to push the proverbial brown stuff uphill. And then there’s fentanyl flooding across the border as well, apparently accounting for half of all opioid-related deaths in the US. It’s scary stuff. The Trade also looks at the immeasurable pain and suffering caused at the end of the chain, with heroin users and the people who

THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD - SPECIAL FOR ARMISTICE DAY On the centenary of the end of the First World War, Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) presents this unique film. Using state of the art technology to restore original archival footage, which is more than a 100 years old, Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there. Driven by a personal interest in the First World War, Jackson set out to bring to life the day-to-day experience of its soldiers. After months immersed in the BBC and Imperial War Museums’ archives, narratives and strategies the story began to emerge. Using the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate, slept and formed friendships; as well what their lives were like away from the trenches during their periods of downtime. Jackson and his team have used cutting edge techniques to make the images of a hundred years ago appear as if they were shot yesterday. The transformation from black and white to colourised footage can be seen throughout the film revealing never before seen details. Reaching into the mists of time, Jackson aims to give these men voices, investigate the hopes and fears of the veterans and the humility and humanity that represented a generation changed forever by a global war. Peter Jackson’s restored and colorized 100 hours of World War I footage is gripping. RP16

SIR CLIFF RICHARD LIVE: 60th ANNIVERSARY TOUR. SPECIAL EVENT Sir Cliff Richard is without a doubt one of our greatest musical treasures. With a staggering 103 album releases, a record breaking 123 single hits and the equivalent of 20 years spent in the UK charts, voted Britain's "Ultimate Pop Star", 2018 sees Sir Cliff celebrate his 60th anniversary in the music business. Cliff said "This 60th Anniversary year is such a very special one for me, with an album release of exciting new tracks in the autumn and to be able to bring my show live to cinemas around the world is an absolute thrill. I have the most wonderful fans and to be able to share this special evening live in Manchester with so many people is such a gift. I really will feel like I am with everyone that night, I can't wait!" The only British pop artist to have number one hits in every decade from the 1950s to the end of the 20th Century, Cliff Richard is a musical icon. From rock tracks like 'Devil Woman' to ballads like 'Miss You Nights' - not to mention the best-loved Christmas songs - his music has been a constant for generations of people.
