Caitlan Johnston talks to the family of Jim Zheng about his recovery following an Anzac Day shooting.

Jim’s on the mend Jim Zheng could be home in a matter of weeks – but he will have to wait before he can return to work.

Mr Zheng, 48, is in the process of making a remarkable recovery after an Anzac Day shooting in the Karapiro Café and Gift Shop he owns with wife Cindy. This week their daughter Lily spoke exclusively to the Cambridge News and said her father was up and walking and laughing in the ABI rehabilitation unit in Henderson, Auckland. She said doctors were surprised at how he had recovered after being shot in the head. “He has short term memory loss and can’t remember the shooting, but we hope that will come back,” Lily said. “He is frustrated that he won’t be able to go straight back to work though. “He is very chatty at the moment and in my opinion loves all the attention he is getting.” The Karapiro shop has been closed since the shooting, and no date for a reopening has been set, but Lily said her mother was keen to open the doors. The couple bought the shop two years ago after owning cafes in Auckland. They moved to New Zealand from China 15 years ago with daughters Lily and Bella. Their son Len was born in New Zealand in 2007.

Jim Zheng bought the Karapiro Café and Gift Shop two years ago.

Lily Zheng (centre), pictured with her parents Jim and Cindy Zheng, says her father is recovering well.

“They moved to New Zealand because they loved the atmosphere, cleanliness and the friendliness of the people. They were also impressed with New Zealand’s heath care system – and we have talked a lot about that since the shooting.” Lily, who lives in Australia and flew back to New Zealand after being told about the shooting, said the family had also received good support from ACC. She said her father spent most of his time working in the shop, but he was a keen gardener and enjoyed DIY and looking after his chickens and bees. He loved the rural lifestyle in Karapiro and the community. She said support for the family had been wonderful. Some people had sent flowers, others had sent food – and the Givealittle page set up for Jim had raised almost $5200. “We know lots of customers have contributed.

“Mum says despite everything she still regards New Zealand as the safest place on earth.” Because of Mr Zheng’s short-term memory loss, the family do not know if the man accused of the shooting is known to him. A 67-year-old Leamington man has been charged with one count of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm in relation to the shooting. Stuff reported that community magistrate Kathryn Wilson told the Hamilton District Court last week that the man was “extremely unwell”. Health assessors had not been able to get a logical stream of thought from the man who is being cared for at the Henry Rongomau Bennett Centre, under the Mental Health Act.

Letters to the editor

Elderly care Resthaven, the home for elderly folk, is an establishment where the older people who reside there are served by hugely caring workers. I have been to Resthaven as a visitor many times and am greatly impressed by the wonderful assistance provided by the staff. Sometimes, I need to approach the staff at the Waipa District Council’s Cambridge office with a potential problem. I have been very impressed with the assistance I have received by members of the staff. Occasionally, finding a solution to the problem can take some time. Cambridge is very fortunate to have organisations of this calibre to help Cambridge residents. Michael Cole. Substance abuse Man the hunter/gatherer, used plant material to improve the taste of his food, aid digestion and for medicinal purposes. In more recent times synthetic drugs have replaced herbal remedies. Herbalists, in earlier times could be charged with witchcraft and burned at the stake if their remedies were too successful or had nasty side effects. Modern day “herbalists” – manufacturers and peddlers of synthetic ‘dope’ – might be discouraged, faced with similar penalties. The only other solution would be an antidote or vaccine to cure the abuser, but that wouldn’t work, it doesn’t with MMR, meningitis or a host of other diseases, Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, which is caused by drinking during pregnancy, not the fault of the baby, or solvent abuse. So it has to be down to personal choice, but drug testing on the road as well as the workplace has to be an option, as evident by the latest family tragedy. The only times Parliament has almost reached unanimity were in 2013 when they voted 119 to 1 for the legalisation of ‘synthetic psycho-active substances’ only to reverse it a few months later. It’s time for “Parliament” to seek consensus, and quit political filibustering. Brian Dunstan

NEW HOME – COUNTRY LIVING

comes as a feature of the new Tamahere Park project that is due to be completed entirely by July and was previously named the Tamahere Recreation and Reserve Piazza project. The new skate park area (pictured below) features a quarter pipe, double quarter pipe with a tabletop, pool bowl, launch ramp, drop-in bank and a half-court basketball court. Construction is also well underway on a concrete wall ride and four feature items were also being constructed. A brand-new playground described by the developers Fosters Develop Limited as a “destination playground” is also being installed. The playground is due to be completed by the middle of June. Waikato District Council Community Projects manager Paul McPherson says progress on the project is going well and

they are looking forward to the community being able to use it. “All in all we are very happy with how well this project has progressed so far this year,” said McPherson. “We’re looking forward to July when the community will be able to enjoy this wonderful new facility in Tamahere.” Alongside the skatepark and playground there will also be four commercial hub blocks, two of which are completed, and a carpark. The two completed commercial blocks are already home to a Four Square, chemist, medical clinic, sushi shop, accountants, chiropractor and hairdressers. Foster Develop Limited’s development manager Tony McLauchlan says the two additional commercial blocks are under construction and will have the flexibility to provide for a wide variety of uses.

Reflecting on my first sacking…

By Mary Anne Gill

When you’re in the eye of a storm, you must have a ‘go to place’. Mine is Lake Te Koutu in Cambridge. It’s there I went when I got home after work on Monday 6 May. I knew the next day it was highly likely Health Minister David Clark was going to sack me from the Waikato District Health Board (DHB) after two years and 144 days. As I watched the ducks fighting for my stale slices of bread, I thought about my father who died in England unexpectedly in his sleep on Anzac Day with my mother, his wife of 66 years beside him. He was still lying in a hospital morgue, 11 days later, as I fed the ducks. The wait for a death certificate over there is shameful and adds to our family’s grief. His last message to me via What’s App only days after Dr Clark announced he was contemplating dismissing the DHB board, was I should retain my dignity, stay calm, be gracious and strong. He worked in public service most of his working life, including a stint at an area health board, and knew the system well. I reflected on what I would say when the media rang me as they inevitably would the next day. In fact, it was an RNZ reporter who was the first to tell me the news I was sacked 10 minutes after Dr Clark issued his press release at 12.30pm on Tuesday 7 May. (I was formally told by email the following day).

When Health Minister David Clark sacked the Waikato District Health Board last week he cited ongoing performance issues and "continual adverse publicity". He has installed a commissioner, Karen Poutasi, who has resumed the process of recruiting a new chief executive for the board. One of the victims of the sacking was Cambridge based board member Mary Anne Gill, a communications manager whose three children attended St Peter’s Catholic School in Cambridge. We asked for her thoughts.

Mary Anne Gill: “until we fix the system, the health and disability sector will continue to struggle”.

When people put themselves forward for public office like a DHB or local council, most want to make a difference in the community they live and work in and for the people they

call friends or neighbours. I stood for the DHB because I am passionate about health and wellness, angry at the huge inequities that exist in our Māori, disability

and rural communities and convinced the current system with its 20 DHBs and mix of elected/appointed members is not working to make health more equitable and affordable. How can it be when your chances of getting an elective procedure or cancer treatment are better in one DHB than another or getting a GP’s appointment depends on so many variables? So, I’ve been sacked for the first time in my life. It is no use me being bitter and twisted – I did my best, I questioned, I probed, seeking answers and solutions: “Why are our vaccination rates, particularly among Maori, lower than most other DHBs? Why are waiting times in Waikato Hospital’s emergency department so long? Why, why, why?” It’s the system delivering these results, not the people. Until we fix the system, the health and disability sector will continue to struggle, and the deficits will not go away. I wish Waikato DHB commissioner Karen Poutasi well. She has a big job. At her whakatau she said: “Nau te rourou naku te rourou. Ka ora ai te iwi.” “With your basket and my basket. The people will flourish.” For me life goes on. I know my father will be proud but annoyed at the “sacked board member” tag. The ducks at Lake Te Koutu don’t give a toss – they’re just waiting for food and as long as I’m able to get to my ‘go to place’, that’s where my stale bread will end up.

Council working on bus situation By Sophie Iremonger

Waipa District Council says there is no intention to ban buses in the CBD after concerns around their mobility in town were discussed at the Cambridge growth strategy committee meeting on April 29. At that meeting, Council’s business development manager Steve Tritt and Destination Cambridge chief executive Miff Macdiarmid both addressed the fact that Cambridge’s road layout can cause issues for larger buses. Intercity coaches and charter tours tend to have trouble finding places to stop safely, they said, and could sometimes get caught up in the roundabouts. The two bus stops on either side of the town hall force buses to drive through the town’s roundabouts, and sometimes multiple buses could call in at the same time, leaving limited space for themselves, let alone other traffic. “There’s a lot more than just bus

parking involved in this picture,” Tritt said, pointing out that the opening of the Hidden Lake Hotel and Apartments at the Lakewood development would only bring more Intercity coaches and charter tours to town. Waipa District Council has since confirmed it is working to improve the situation. “Council is aware that there are some limitations with central bus stops,” said Bryan Hudson, manager - road corridor for Waipa District Council. “We are working on a business case for improved bus services and this identifies the need for more of a bus ‘hub’ in Cambridge.” Hudson said more details were still to come. “It is likely to be a project and will need to be considered in our next 10-year plan (2021), including both Cambridge and Te Awamutu bus services. Bus drivers may find it much easier to stop in Cambridge with Waipa District Council looking at ways to improve the limitations on central bus stops. “There is no intention to ban buses.”

Health check for Cambridge businesses Fire calls By Viv Posselt

Cambridge’s business sector has been advised to be more audacious and collaborative in shaping its future, ‘take the pulse’ of a changing consumer base, and plan now to head off a looming labour shortage. Those were some of the key messages to come out of a May 9 First Retail event run by the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Waipa District Council (WDC), attended by around 80 retail and other business sector representatives, developers and property owners. Described as a ‘retail and commercial health check’, it was aimed at ensuring Cambridge remained ‘fit for purpose’. Presentations were made by First Retail Group managing director Chris Wilkinson; Jason Dawson, CEO of Hamilton and Waikato Tourism; and Brad Olsen, an economist from Infometrics. The First Retail team consulted with local businesses and the WDC in the days leading up to the event. Chris Wilkinson said feedback had been “fantastic” and added: “We wanted to understand what makes Cambridge unique. This is all about finding out about where to prioritise effort and investment … how to grow that ‘specialness’.” He said an eight percent growth in spending by WDC consumers was almost double that in the rest of the Waikato, and described an 11 percent growth in spending by

international consumers as “quite spectacular”. He said outcomes could improve further if we better understood the needs and expectations of consumers, and it was suggested that planners look at successful town models nationally and internationally for ideas. Jason Dawson, who works closely with the WDC and the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce, said Waipa was “smashing it out of the park” with the growth in visitor spending up 9.6 percent year on year. He said both retail and the food and beverage sectors ranked as top visitor spends. Both Jason and Chris urged local businesses to consider how well they

were servicing visitors. Ideas shared with the floor covered extended weekend café opening times, thoughts of limiting vehicle traffic in town and maybe introducing hop-on, hop-off buses, building on the success of local producers and markets, growing experience-led tourism, and working with council to ensure there was adequate business accommodation. Community pride was crucial to a town’s success, said Chris, as was the need for town centre development to align with the values that attract people here. He cited Cambridge’s village feel and environmental focus, its trees, lifestyle and link with champions, and attractiveness

to new businesses, such as those in the technology sector. He said Cambridge needed to be “a place of affordability and relevance” and the town centre needed to take the lead in shaping its growth. Cambridge Chamber of Commerce CEO Kelly Bouzaid said she was “delighted” at the level of engagement from attendees. “The conversations the First Retail team had with retailers and businesses across town offered insights into our town’s economy and the opportunities at hand. Work streams have now been tentatively identified with the Chamber that focus on enhancing our SMEs’ digital capability and visibility as the first initiative off the block.” During the event, Chris emphasised the importance of digital connectivity. He said customers increasingly made destination decisions based on digital research and influence. “It’s an important part of the success of a town. Cambridge has good digital competency, but there is room to grow.” Infometrics economist Brad Olsen said Waipa had the fastest growing economy in the Waikato in March 2018 “by a country mile”, but he said a nationwide shortage of workers, particularly young people, was important for places like Cambridge to consider. “The difficulty people experience in finding workers means people will cutback on growth,” he said.

Calls to the Cambridge Volunteer Fire Brigade are up 15 per cent on the same time last year. Fire Chief Don Gerrand believes the increase could reflect Cambridge’s rising population. The number of residents in Cambridge has grown by 1200 over the last four years, putting the town’s population at around 20,400. Before the start of this week the Cambridge alarm had sounded 140 times - more than once a day compared to 120 at the same time in 2018 Mr Gerrand said now was a good time for residents with older wood fire chimneys to have them swept. “Most modern fires are log burners and to be efficient they have to have clean chimneys, so chimney fires aren’t as prevalent as years gone by,” he said.

Fire calls for the week ending May 14. Wednesday, May 8 12.16pm - Alarm sounding at Pukemoremore Road School. Thursday, May 9 3.16pm - Alarm activation at NZ Post Cambridge. Saturday, May 11 1.56pm - Ambulance lift assist. Sunday, May 12 1.21am - Alarm activation at Fresh Choice supermarket. 7.15am - Residential alarm activation. Monday, May 13 8.23am - Motor vehicle accident on Marychurch Road. Tuesday, May 14 3.35am - Alarm activation at Countdown supermarket.

Upston forum opposes Food festival brings cultures together legalising cannabis By Sophie Iremonger

By Caitlan Johnston

Cambridge-Taupo MP Louise Upston found an audience staunchly opposed to legalising recreational cannabis use when she hosted her latest Friday Forum in Cambridge. But the audience of around 15 was receptive to allowing medicinal use. The Government announced last week that during the 2020 election voters will be given a yes-no question on restricted legalisation of recreational cannabis use. The proposed legislation outlines a minimum age of 20 to buy and use recreational cannabis, regulations and commercial supply controls, limited home-growing options, a public education programme and stakeholder engagement. Two independent surveys suggest the yes-no vote will be a close one. Grey Power supports legalising the herb for medicinal but not recreational use. In the Cambridge Health and Community Centre last week residents voiced concerns at the social and health issues which could be created by making recreational use legal. “Surely we’ve got enough social

problems and we’re going to go and add this one?” one said. “Medicinal cannabis is a wonderful thing that we should be supporting, but not recreational cannabis as well. If we do, we’ll never get away from that,” was another observation. Louise Upston said as with tobacco and alcohol use, the consequences of legalising recreational cannabis may not become clear “until it is too late”. “What we do know about it is the harm involved, so do we really want to introduce another substance and just say that we will regulate it? “We got it massively wrong and we created a lot of harm by legalising synthetic cannabis and we have to use that now as a lesson.” She also raised concerns about challenges legalising cannabis use would create in the workplace, for the mental health crisis and how the tax regime would work. After the forum, the MP said she would be in favour of holding a referendum on legalising recreational cannabis if the referendum was binding “but what is proposed won’t be a binding referendum”. “My current view is that I’m not convinced of how the harm

Students at Cambridge High School revived a long-time school favourite last week – the Cambridge High School International Food Festival. The event hadn’t been held since 2016, but due to popular demand the school’s student cultural committee decided to bring it back this year. “It was a real team effort,” said Taasha Connon, head of the cultural committee, who largely organised the event alongside Callum Trower. Over one hundred students were involved in creating their own stalls that represented their heritage or

chosen culture, some of them even dressing to the occasion to prepare and serve their meals. Planning began in Term 1, with the day finally being held on Monday, May 6. When the lunch time bell rang, hoards of students poured into the school hall to try the many foods on offer. Items ranged from a delicious family-recipe Indian butter chicken to beautifully presented Japanese donburi, a huge range of delicacies from South Africa, fresh-baked French pastries, and even a Maori hangi. Foods from China, Thailand, South Korea, Fiji and Vietnam were also on offer.

from cannabis would be mitigated through legalisation. Countries usually decriminalise before legalising, so skipping this step concerns me.” The MP said she had tried cannabis a couple of times but it did not play a major role in her assessment of whether or not it should be legalised. Data quoted by the Drug Foundation indicates that by the age of 21, 80% of New Zealanders have tried cannabis at least once. The forum also canvassed conditions of roads, immigration, the housing crisis and the David Seymour's End of Life Choice Bill.

Steph Bell-Jenkins catches up with Robyn Chappell and Luna the white sparrow.

A Robyn who help birds

All birds are created equal in the eyes of Huntington Stables Retreat owner Robyn Chappell, who set up Bird Rescue Cambridge at the Maungakawa Rd property about five years ago. “There are lots of people who look after native birds – which is fantastic – but garden variety birds kind of get overlooked a little,” she said. “It’s like oh well it’s only a sparrow, oh it’s only a blackbird. But I think they are just as worthy as any other bird.” Robyn has always loved animals, particularly the feathered variety. “As I’ve got older I’ve gone completely off cats because they’re so destructive, but birds have always been there in some form and I seem to have a natural affinity with them,” she said. In spring her rescue centre, located five minutes from the centre of town, will be inundated with sick and injured birds. “Spring is unbelievably busy; we have babies and it’s just like a factory,” Robyn said. “We hand feed them, clean them, put them to bed and it’s just like next, next.” Many patients are baby birds that have fallen from their nests, or the victims of cat attacks. Robyn and her volunteers care for them in cages at a “nursery” in her house until they are strong enough to be released into an aviary, then the wild. “They stay around for a little while because obviously I’m their mum – and they land on your hand and your shoulder and they want to be fed and all that sort of thing – but you know that give it five days you’ll go out and they won’t be there because they

find their new family and their gang and it’s really cool,” she said. It’s a bittersweet job at times. “We get really attached to some of those little birds – not all of them – but some are just so beautiful, they’ve really struggled and it’s been touch and go, so when we release them we’re really sad. But we’re all really happy too because it’s like yes, we’ve done our job; we’ve done a good job.” Cambridge Bird Rescue takes all kinds of birds, from sparrows, budgies and finches to blackbirds, pheasants and hawks. Originally only for wild garden birds, it now caters for surrendered domestic birds too. Over the years one of Robyn’s standout experiences was saving a rare albino sparrow named Luna (pictured right), highly unusual for its snowy white plumage and pink eyes and legs, who is now a permanent resident at the centre. Another was watching a local woman, Joy, reunite with a sparrow she had saved and raised, named Buster. “Joy comes and visits and I’m learning all the time, because at first I thought Buster wouldn’t recognise her but she did,” Robyn said. “Joy was calling Buster and she had her favourite food and yep, Buster came down and started talking to her. It was really moving and it just shows you that birds are like any other animal; they’re affectionate and smart and they’re worthy and we should be valuing them.” To read more about Robyn’s work visit Bird Rescue Cambridge’s Givealittle webpage (givealittle.co.nz/cause/birdrescue-cambridge).

FRIDAY MAY 17, 2019

Luna takes up permanent residence Animal lovers will soon have a chance to see a rarity in the bird world up close in Cambridge. Luna, an albino sparrow with pure white feathers and pink eyes, hit the headlines in January when she was attacked by a cat and taken to Bird Rescue Cambridge in Maungakawa. Robyn Chappell clearly recalls the disbelief that struck when she opened the delivery box and found a true freak of nature peering up at her. “It was panic, oh my God, and then okay

we need to do everything we can to save this bird,” she said. “A pure albino bird in the wild is rare; to have one in captivity...it just doesn’t happen.” The odds were stacked against the plucky little sparrow, which was at risk of organ puncture from a potentially broken bone and bacterial infection from the cat’s saliva, but lots of TLC and a trip to the vet for antibiotics did the trick. “And yeah, she survived, so we’re incredibly lucky,” Robyn said. Since then Robyn, who jointly owns

Huntington Stables Retreat where the bird rescue centre is located, has installed a bigger aviary and has been developing the grounds to improve access for volunteers and the public. The work has been made possible thanks to donations to the Bird Rescue Cambridge Givealittle webpage, builder Sam Annison of Kiwi Cabins, and volunteers. “Once the grounds are done we’ll have an afternoon tea for anyone who wants to come and visit Luna and see what we’re doing, ready for the spring when all the babies will come in,” Robyn said. “There are lots of people who are into birds and they want to come and help, so that’ll be really, really cool.” The dedicated bird-lover is now trying to raise an extra $2000 through Givealittle to build an extension to the aviary. “Some birds don’t get along with others and Luna has to be protected at all costs,” she said. Because Luna is a true albino she “basically has a target on her back” and can never be released back into the wild. “White stands out so she can’t camouflage and she’s easily spotted by predators like hawks, magpies and cats,” Robyn said. “And albinos have weak, brittle bones and feathers, so they don’t live long out in the wild. They can’t fly long distances or get off the ground quickly; they’re very weak. We don’t keep birds, they do get released, but we can’t do it to her because she simply won’t last out there.” Meanwhile, Luna is “thriving” in her new home. “She’s very happy and active and bouncy; she’s brilliant up there,” Robyn said. “And

she has two sparrow friends so that’s really cute.” Luna is thought to be female, but this isn’t confirmed because albino sparrows have no markings. It’s hoped her friends – one male, one female – will help reveal her sex. “Because we can’t release Luna we kind of hope that she gets to do what adult sparrows get to do,” Robyn said. “But we don’t know...it’s a learning curve for us as well.” Whatever happens, life at the rescue centre is pretty great. “Luna’s a goddess up there, she gets everything,” Robyn said. “Everything is done for her, everything provided, every kind of food she loves. She’s safe where she is.”

Speed limits More than 30 residents who made written submissions on a raft of speed limit changes in the Waipā District have asked to be heard in person. The Cambridge News reported last week that there had been an overwhelming wave of support for reducing speeds in built up areas, clearing the way for councillors to make a final decision in July. The council will now review the written submissions and hear oral submissions and consider expert advice. Among the changes which have been proposed are a series of speed limit reduction outside Cambridge Schools, which have strong backing.

Redpath rewarded for dedication By Sophie Iremonger

Jack Redpath, winner of the Cambridge High School Ritchie Pickett Scholarship, is not your average music student. The dedicated saxophonist practices every day, sometimes several times a day. “Music is my greatest passion and if I’m not asleep I’m playing some sort of instrument,” he said. “Every lunch time I’m in the music room practicing or recording music.” Awarded annually to an outstanding Year 10 to 13 music student to recognise their musical ability and contribution to Cambridge High School, the Ritchie Pickett Scholarship awards $1000 to the scholarship winner each year. It was established in 2016 by the Pickett family in conjunction with Cambridge High School, to encourage and support a student who has showed excellence in music. A legendary New Zealand country and rock musician, Ritchie Pickett died at his Cambridge home in 2011.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to the Ritchie Pickett Trust and family, this is a big stepping stone for me for where I’m going in the future,” said Jack. “It has really boosted me forward and opened up my eyes to what I can do.” Jack, who plays so often that he wears through his wooden reed every two to three weeks, has bought a few plastic synthetic reeds with the funds, which will last a lot longer, and plans to download the “hugely helpful” music-writing software programmes Sibelius and Logic Pro. He’ll put some towards his savings for a new baritone saxophone, and the rest to help his musical education at university. Currently he plays the Waikato Youth Symphonic Orchestra’s baritone sax, and he’ll be playing with the group this weekend at a music festival. Jack also plays with the Cambridge Jazz Band, a saxophone trio, and a local American-style brass band. Last year he received the Cambridge High School Diligence in Music Award for his involvement with music both in and outside of school.

Mother turns inventor for a good cause One Cambridge mum has come up with an environmental solution to feed hungry kids on the go. Inspired by the concept of litterless lunch boxes, Sandy Kingston switched to using reusable food pouches to avoid contributing to the waste created by baby food pouches and yoghurts. “Roughly 352 thousand tonnes of packaging is going to landfills each year, and the increasing popularity of singleuse pouches is becoming a significant contributor to this problem,” said the mother of three.

Sandy Kingston created her own baby product after she couldn’t find what she needed on the market.

TV figure to host parenting evening

But when it came to making baby food for her toddler, she found the reusable pouches already on the market were too hard to fill and clean. She decided a silicon pouch that stands on its own would be much easier, but after she couldn’t find one online, she finally resorted to inventing the product herself. She came up with the “Pouchee” – a toxin-free FDAapproved silicone The pouchee in action. food pouch with a wide neck for easy pouring, and of course the ability to freestand, as well as go in the microwave, freezer or dishwasher. The Cambridge mum has spent the past several months developing the product, and now sells them online at hungrycubs.co.nz. “The shop products are very expensive for young families and the plastic ends up being thrown away. To me this seemed like a huge waste, so I wanted to create a fun, convenient and new product that can be used by infants right through to young children,” Sandy said. Cambridge News has two Pouchees to give away. Just send your full name and contact number, along with the word “Pouchee” in the subject line, to: sophie@goodlocal.nz.

Violence Free Waipa will host TV personality, MC and entertainer Pio Terei for a parenting show in Cambridge next week. Violence Free Waipa Cambridge coordinator Jenni Dacomb said the show was bound to be a fun and informative evening, “and you are guaranteed to take away a smile, a chuckle and a tip or two on how to survive parenting,” she said. “We are very lucky to secure Pio, thanks to the generous support of The Parenting Place, Nga Hau E Wha Marae in Cambridge, Asure Albert Park Motor Lodge and Te Awamutu College.” A similar show will be held in Te Awamutu on May 21. Nga Hau E Wha Community Marae, on Bracken Street in Cambridge, will host the show on May 22. Doors open at 6.30pm, and a number of associated organisations will be on hand with additional information. The show starts 7.30pm. Pio will provide parents with answers to parenting and family support-related questions, and shed light on upcoming courses such as the parenting toolbox.

“When a group of people get together and make a conscious decision to improve their parenting skills, there is a ripple effect that begins to impact on the immediate family, the community and eventually the whole country,” Pio said. “I am inspired by the passion shown by parents of all types and backgrounds to improve their whanau life.” Both Waipa events are free to attend, though a koha or small donation will be gratefully received. To find out more contact Jenni Dacomb on 07 827 5402.

TV personality Pio Terei will share parenting tips at a free show in Cambridge next week.

Liu named oral health therapist of the year

A Cambridge oral health therapist has been recognised by her peers at the New Zealand Dental and Oral Health Therapists Association’s (NZDOHTA) annual conference held earlier this month. Yun-Yu Liu, who works out of the Waikato District Health Board’s Cambridge Community Dental Clinic, was awarded Oral Health Therapist of the Year. Also known as YY, YunYu Liu was described by Community Oral Health’s general manager Diane Pevreal as a ‘cup half full person’, who sees the best

in everybody and every situation. “YY is an outstanding oral health therapist who is the perfect role model for the profession and an exemplary employee,” she said. “Our Waikato DHB could not be prouder of her and her achievements and now the recognition of this by her peers.” YY said she loves what she does and has an ethos that prevention and positive dental experiences are key to good oral health. Having the ability to make a difference to a person’s quality of life through good

oral care, YY said, is one of the most rewarding careers. YY is currently reforming the Waikato Branch of NZDOHTA and is encouraging those in the dental industry to join them.

Yun-Yu Liu was awarded Oral Health Therapist of the Year.

Local groups benefit from Legacy philosophy The Cambridge Tree Trust cheque was received by John Moodie. He said the organisation was “passionate about trees” and that anything which helped further promote that was of great significance, particularly given the value trees have in helping combat the effects of climate change. Cambridge Resthaven was represented by the then acting CEO Rachel Jones, and community liaison officer Gaylene Callaghan. Rachel said that Cambridge Resthaven had strong community links through its connection with both Age Concern and the Visiting Service and said financial help such as offered through the Legacy grant was “very welcome”. “That $5000 will go towards funding a much-needed sensory bath for our residents,” Rachel said. “It will be a tremendous help, so thank you so much for your donation.” Legacy Funerals founder, Greg Brownless, and the man who helped him establish the Legacy Trust, Bill Holland, also addressed guests. Greg, who is also Tauranga City Council Mayor, established his funeral home in 1990. After helping identify victims of Thailand’s 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, he was inspired to find a way to put something back into his community, and with the help of Bill Holland, established the Legacy Trust in 2007. Since then, it has given away

The Wheels in Motion trikes programme at the Avantidrome, Cambridge Tree Trust and Cambridge Resthaven have each received $5000 in Legacy Trust grants distributed through Cambridge Funerals. The presentation was made at a May 9 event at Henley Hotel, hosted by the charitable trust Legacy Trust and Cambridge Funerals. The organisations have been linked since the 2018 purchase of Cambridge Funerals by Tauranga-based Legacy Trust, bringing the local business under the Legacy umbrella and distributing profits from both Legacy Funerals - and now Cambridge Funerals – to local charities. Aaron Ure, who has fronted the Wheels in Motion programme since it began five years ago, was delighted. The trikes programme has become one of the Avantidrome’s biggest growth areas, increasing from 40 riders at the start to 5700 trike riders last year. Thanking Legacy, Aaron said: “Nothing compares with seeing somebody regain control of their lives. When you lose your mobility, or part of it, you don’t realise how much it impacts on your life. This generous donation will go towards helping the Avantidrome continue to develop this programme.”

around $3 million in the Tauranga region. The purchase of Cambridge Funerals from Stuart Houchen late last year by Legacy Funerals took the Legacy Trust philosophy outside Tauranga for the first time. Also addressing the function was Legacy Trust general manager Kiri Randall, and Cambridge Funerals manager Jono Gibson. Among other attendees were Waipa District Council Mayor Jim Mylchreest, Hamilton City Council Mayor Andrew King, and former Cambridge Funerals owner Stuart Houchen, who remains with the company in an ambassadorial capacity for the Trust. MC for the event was former Olympian, Rob Waddell.

Citizen’s Advice: Rental woes

The Cambridge Citizens Advice Bureau’s monthly column returns – this month the group covers legal matters and advice when it comes to paying rent. What happens if I can’t pay my rent? If you are going to have problems with paying your rent on time it is worth talking to your landlord about it. They may agree to an affordable repayment plan, so that you can stay in your home. Non-payment of rent would mean that you are in breach of the Residential Tenancies Act and your tenancy agreement. As soon as your rent is just one day overdue, the landlord can give you a 14-day notice to remedy. This notice gives you 14 days to remedy the situation (e.g. by paying the overdue amount). If you are more than 21 days behind in rent or haven’t sorted anything out after getting the 14-day notice to remedy, the landlord can apply to the Tenancy

From gold medals to cookies Cambridge’s world champion Paralympian Nikita Howarth has had messages of support from friends, family and people she has met over her stellar career after being forced to quit competitive sport for medical reasons. The 20-year-old announced her retirement last week, saying the decision had “not come easily”. However, due to auto immune disease her body was no longer allowing her to perform at the highest level. Nikita, who grew up in Cambridge, became New Zealand’s youngest ever Paralympian at age 13 when she made her debut in swimming at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. In what Paralympics New Zealand

described as a “meteoric” rise, she was crowned a world champion the next year, and went on to win gold and bronze at the Rio 2016 Paralympics. In 2017 she switched to para cycling and in December 2018 broke the flying 200m sprint world record. “I am quite saddened that it has had to end this way as my cycling journey had only just begun,” Nikita told Cambridge News. However, the elite athlete had always known there was “much more to life than just sport” and was now ready to move on and develop her life in other areas. This included channelling her ambitious mindset into an existing passion. “My parents always tell people that I was born driven and it developed as I grew as

an athlete; I think I will use it to explore my baking as I have found a love for it,” she said. “I used to help my mum bake when I was younger and had competitions with my younger sister baking cookies and things; ever since I’ve just loved it. Nikita left Cambridge in 2017 when she bought a house in Te Awamutu, where she has recently started a retail job that she is “really enjoying”. “I’m looking forward to see where that may lead in future,” she said.

Nikita first set her sights on winning a Paralympic gold medal after a school visit from 2004 Olympic cycling champion Sarah Ulmer and said para sport had provided her with amazing opportunities. “I hope that many disabled New Zealanders get to experience what I have, like travelling around the world and making lifelong friendships while achieving their goals,” she said. “I feel as if I have achieved what I aspired to do, and I am proud of that.”

Nikita Howarth was New Zealand’s youngest Paralympian in 2012. She represented New Zealand again at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

Cambridge teachers stand firm for mega strike By Caitlan Johnston

Mike Pettit says teachers aren’t getting fobbed off.  Photo by Caitlan Johnston

Primary and secondary school teachers and principals have shown they will not back down to the Government after both voting in favor of taking joint strike action on May 29. Last week, primary school teachers and principals across the country voted in secret ballots at NZEI Te Riu Roa meetings while the Post Primary Teachers Association (PPTA) held online ballots across secondary schools, the results were announced on Sunday, May 12. In Cambridge, NZEI Te Riu Roa held a paid-union meeting at Cambridge Middle School on Tuesday, May 7 which saw teachers from 12 different primary schools from the area and from Hamilton in attendance. Cambridge Primary School Principal Mike Pettit said teachers need higher pays, they need more release time to cut down heavy workloads and that the industry needs to become appealing to be able to solve the teacher shortage crisis. “We’re not going away and we’re not getting fobbed off. A lot of teachers have had enough and we’re going to stand firm.” Several teachers at the meeting raised their concerns regarding long working hours, with many of them working 50-60 hours a week, cutting into their own time. Cambridge Middle School teacher Gareth Cogan says that the workload is becoming too much. “The workload is getting far too great and more and more is being expected of us, but not enough time is being given. Our evening and weekends are taken up by paperwork,” said Cogan. Teachers have been campaigning for over a year now and have already had two strike days and have rejected four offers from the Government. The mega strike is set to be New Zealand’s largest ever industrial action taken by teachers with 50,000 from across 2000 schools expected to take part. Teachers turned down the Ministry of Education’s latest offer of a $698 million pay improvement package for primary school teachers and a $500 million package for secondary school teachers. Jacinta O’Connell, teacher at Cambridge East School and

their NZEI representative, says the strike will show the Government that teachers are willing to work harder to get them to change their position. “The strike is a significant escalation in the campaign, and it will send a very strong message to the Government about the commitment and unity in our sector,” said O’Connell.

Walker banks Olympic Basketballers back from Greece qualifying points The St Peter’s Premier Girls basketball team have returned from the ISF World Championships in Greece ranked fifth in the world. The team, which was the first female team to represent New Zealand at the competition, won five out of their six games during the week-long competition held last month. They played Israel, Denmark, France, Chile and two teams from Greece. The first game was against Greece, which the St Peter’s girls won 58-41. The team from Israel were the reigning secondary school champions in their country and hadn’t lost a game in two and a half years. The battle was fierce and at one stage they had a 10 point lead, but the determined St Peter’s girls pulled through to win 61-60. In their third game the Denmark team caught the St Peter’s defence by surprise, but they soon gained their

scoring momentum and catapulted ahead, winning 61-28. They played another Greek team in game four, the quarter final. As the host nation, Greece were able to have two teams representing their country. It was a close game all the way but sadly the St Peter’s girls lost 60 - 49. They faced the French team in game five, which had a very vocal and colourful supporters group. Though the small but loyal St Peter’s contingent were outnumbered, they were still heard cheering the most during the second half after St Peter’s – who were trailing 32-31 at half time – managed to take the win 51-43. During the final game against Chile both teams were feeling the effects of torrid and tight games, but St Peter’s got away to the best start. A topsyturvy game saw Chile make a 16-9 first quarter lead to go into the half time break. St Peter’s fought hard, but

Sarah Walker didn’t walk away with any wins at the UCI Supercross World Cup in the Netherlands, but she did bank qualifying points for her Tokyo 2020 Olympic bid and has returned home in good shape to prepare for the World Championships in July. Playing it safe due to an injury, she decided to bank the qualifying points ahead of her semi-final race instead of risking them in an all-or-nothing approach. In that race she finished seventh. Unfortunately, on day two of competition at the Dutch Olympic Training centre in Papendal, Walker didn’t make the finals having missed out on the semi-finals by just one placing. Throughout the competition she had consistently been amongst the fastest riders out of the start, but says she hit the gate hard in the quarterfinals and was riding amongst a strong field, both being factors that pushed her back to fifth place.

The St Peter’s Premier Girls basketball team finished up fifth overall at the ISF World Championships in Greece.

unfortunately lost 49-42 to earn a very credible fifth place. Not to be forgotten, they got the chance to share some of their Kiwi flair at a cultural evening held during the competition. Joining up with the only other New Zealand team, a boys team from Rosmini College, they gave an incredible cultural performance to the crowd. The team also got the chance to have a few days of sightseeing, visiting a number of monasteries, the Hydra, Poros and Aegina islands, as well as the famed Crete caves where Zeus is rumoured to have been born. There they sang a beautiful reindition of Hutia Te Rito. They also swam the Aegean Sea and traipsed a hill to view the world famous Acropolis in Athens. The team wished to thank all those who supported their fundraising events and sent well wishes their way.

Long distance football this weekend By Josh Easby

Cambridge’s top men and women footballers face their longest treks of the season this weekend. The Reds resume their Northern League campaign with a 620km round-trip to Tikipunga, north of Whangarei, where they will face Northland FC on Saturday. On Sunday, Cambridge women head to Waihi to meet the town’s team in the Waikato Women’s Cup. For local football fans, the main feature at John Kerkhof Park this weekend will be Cambridge’s WaiBOP Championship team’s match against Otorohanga, which kicks off on Saturday at 12.30pm. In the Northern League, the Reds face Northland looking to consolidate their push for promotion to the Lotto NRFL first division. The top two teams in the second division go up and Cambridge currently sit in third spot after an excellent start to the season. Last weekend, the Reds also made progress in the ISPS Handa Chatham Cup – the sport’s oldest club competition starting in 1923 – with a first round victory in Auckland. It took some hard words at half-time from the Reds coaching staff to prompt a dramatic turnaround as Cambridge came from behind to easily win the tie 6-2 against Papakura City. After a hapless first half, Cambridge trailed 2-1 at the break but the side came out steaming in the second spell, scoring twice within 90 seconds of the restart to take the lead for the first time in the first-round cup clash at McLennan Park. That spell turned the game with the Reds finding the net five times in the second half and depriving Papakura of any real chances to add to their score. Cambridge started the match as favourites to beat Papakura, relegated from the Northern League last year and now playing in the Auckland Conference. But the Reds were badly out of sorts for the first half-hour, allowing the home side to take the lead through a long-range speculator from Munit Krishna. With 45 minutes played, Cambridge levelled when Dylan Blair scored his sixth goal of the season, nipping between a defender and ‘keeper Josh Shackleton. While the Reds lined up for the restart, Papakura’s Luke Chapman saw Cambridge ‘keeper Patrick Steele off his line and struck a perfectly placed shot from the halfway line which flew into the net. Referee Pat Barrett signalled the goal and blew for half-time. The Reds, smarting from their half-time stir-up led by coach Paul Richardson, seemed a more determined outfit as play resumed. Within 30 seconds, substitute Kyle Stead – playing his first game since returning from college football in the United States – found the net. From the kick off, Cambridge immediately won possession and a ball into the box found big Josh Clarkin who steered his shot past the ‘keeper to put the visitors ahead 3-2. From there, Cambridge took charge. Zach Mayo extended the lead in the 57th minute and he struck again in the 70th minute, with the goal of the game, a well-struck volley after Josh Clarkin cleverly set up the shot for him. With four minutes to go, Aaron Huesser completed the rout with a well-taken goal. In other games, Cambridge’s championship side continued to show inconsistent form, losing 4-1 at Tauranga City.

Goliath puts slay Taupiri The famous Waikato fog was present early Saturday morning as the table topping Hautapu side headed north to face bottom placed Taupiri, in a David vs Goliath type battle. It was one where Goliath had too much strength as Hautapu ran away to an 86-7 wins. By the time kick off arrived the fog had lifted to reveal a beautiful and warm autumn day. The weather played a brilliant job in foreshadowing the game, which started off

Sheldon Tovio going in to score.

as a bit of a hazy affair. Hautapu struggled to find the right gears, a symptom of either the changes in combinations and personnel, or simply a side lacking the motivation to get up for a bottom of the log clash. Either way, the men from Taupiri were more than happy to meet the Hautapu team with some stern shoulders and resolute defence. The big tackles clearly helped lift the fog from the minds of the Hautapu team, who realised they had a game on their hands. The lift in tempo saw the ball begin to move past the third phase, which in turn led to the Taupiri defence getting stretched, and it was not long before the Hautapu team crossed the whitewash to begin building up a lead. The joy was short lived as a poor exit from a resulting kick off saw Taupiri hit back with a seven pointer of their own, which gave the home side some belief. Their street smarts and experience saw them bring the tempo of the game right back down and it further resembled a bit of trench warfare for most of the first half, with Taupiri very much in the match. However, as has been the modus operandi for much of the season, the Hautapu side quickly found an extra gear in the final few minutes of the half, scoring three quick tries to build a comfortable buffer. The half time team talk from the coaches must have hit the mark, as the Hautapu team came out firing and finally hit their straps. After spending the majority of the season to date watching their forwards dominate and score tries, the Hautapu backs finally put on a display they could be proud of, moving the ball from end to end and causing the Taupiri

backs all sorts of havoc. A horrible scuffle and punch up threatened to mar what was turning out to be an entertaining game of rugby, but some good officiating and some stern words from ex-All Black (and Taupiri Assistant coach) Ross Filipo resolved the issue. Hautapu though seemed more determined and showed Taupiri no mercy in putting them to the sword to run out 86-7 winners

before the referee finally blew the fulltime whistle. For Hautapu, it is back home for the final game of the first round against a desperate Morrinsville side who will be looking to secure themselves a spot in the second round tomorrow. Hautapu will not be looking to do them any favours, a strong end to the first round in front of their loyal home fans will be firmly set in their minds.

Bradley Slater breaking out supported by Mike Tomsett and Bodie Mechell.

Club notes from Hautapu Hautapu’s netball season is now underway and it’s been an exciting start. Hautapu Sports have three teams in the premier grade again this season - Hautapu Premier, Onyx Hautapu and Hautapu Development. All three have one game under their belts and have shown some of their potential already.  We have three teams in our Saturday competition again this year: Hautapu Hawks, Hautapu Phoenix and Hautapu Social. These teams have played two grading games so far. They have all posted some great results.  We wish all of our teams the very best for this season and we would love to see our supporters getting along and cheering the girls on from the sidelines. 

Rugby – Development Hautapu’s reserves beat Taupiri 39-19 on Saturday. The home side’s strong forward pack kept Hautapu camped on their goal line for the first 15 minutes before a break out from Hautapu out wide saw points on the board. As the game progressed Hautapu scored two more converted tries and a penalty to end the first half at 24-0 ahead. In the second half Taupiri came out strong using their forwards to crash it up the inside channel and it was a strategy which in three tries to, two converted, and the scores were narrowed to 24-19. Hautapu rallied with what ball they got and managed two more tries and a penalty to finish the game 39-19 ahead.

The opponents were level on points but ahead slightly on goal difference. Leamington scored three tries by way of Adin Bolton, Drew Bootten and Josh Evans, with Mitch Abbott slotting a conversion.

The Senior B’s have continued to dominate their competition with another emphatic victory, taking the spoils 65-0. The senior teams travel to Huntly next week. The Regal Agriculture Leamington Colts faced Hamilton Old Boys in a one-sided battle on Saturday, the under 21 team winning 69-5. Player of the day went to Stephen Nadan. Their next game this Saturday (tomorrow) is at home on the Leamington turf against Hamilton Marist, kick off 1pm. The under 85kg team were heavily beaten in their latest game against Melville, the reigning champs. Next week they travel to Hamilton to play Marist. The Presidents grade finally got under way at Melville recently in a 10-a-side tournament. Their competition starts next week with a home game against Whatawhata. The club’s ‘Sponsors and Old Timers’ day was a great success, thanks to Cambridge Stud, Waipa Civil, The 5 Stags, Collins and Sons and Regal Agriculture.

Perfect setting for weekend tramp Cambridge trampers recently spent the weekend at the Whirinaki Recreation Camp, inside the Whirinaki Conservation Park two and a half hours south of Cambridge. Whirinaki is one of the last precious remnants of one of the best remaining examples of lowland podocarp forest left in New Zealand. Eighteen members enjoyed a great weekend at the camp, located 5km from Minginui Village on Old Te Whaiti Road. With three cabins, which each sleep 10 people, we had the luxury of a wood burning fire place in each one, which actually left most of us overheated during the night due to overzealous fires burning before bed. Along with a large separate open-sided cooking shelter with a wood open fire, flush toilets and solar showers, what more could you ask for! No lighting or fridge but plenty of chilly bins and portable BBQs which made for good meals and plenty of home baking. Over the weekend the Easter bunny set the scene with an Easter egg hunt and egg throw. We were spoilt for choice for tracks to tramp. The area has multiple day tramps with huts to stay in along the way and a series of

short walks for all abilities. We chose the Whirinaki Waterfall Loop track (3 hr 30 min) in the morning, this follows the Whirinaki River through superb podocarp forest with many excellent vantage points along the river. The waterfall can be heard for some distance. After lunch the Arohaki Lagoon track provided easy-to-medium walking passes through impressive tawa/podocarp forest, featuring magnificent specimens of a variety of native trees. The lagoon is rain fed, and due to the low rainfall over summer the lagoon had dried out. But this did not detract from the towering kahikatea surrounding the lagoon. A most enjoyable day for all. The following day we did a series of short walks: Waiatiu Falls track; Lookout track; Wiremu Merito Reserve track and H-tree track, all easy-to-medium tracks showing a variety of huge rimu, totora and kahikatea to name a few. A great time was had by all and we certainly recommend this area as a great example of mature forestry with a variety of choices to cater for all abilities.

National award for water operator

The youngest member of Waipa District Council’s water services team has picked up a national award. Water reticulation operator Angus Seddon, 23, won the 2018 Young Operator of the Year Award at the Water Industry Operations Group awards last Thursday in Christchurch. The award recognises his work undertaking water leak repairs, new house connections and assisting contractors with repairs across the district’s water network. Angus, humbled by the award, said he was glad to serve the public and “getting out on the shovel” is one of his favourite things about the job. Water services manager Tony Hale said Angus’s passion for the water industry has been clear since his start in the team more than three years ago. “Angus’s enthusiasm to deliver water services for Waipā has been apparent since day one. He has shown tremendous growth in the time he’s been with us and it’s great to see him recognised by his industry peers. We are a very proud team today.” The Young Operator of the Year Award, sponsored by Hall Machinery, is awarded to a person under 25 who has enthusiasm and passion to learn about the water industry, and who has demonstrated excellent progress in their training. As part of his prize, Angus will travel to Australia to attend the Waters Industry Operations Association of Australia conference.

Nashi couple reap the fruits of perseverance Ian and Mary Wallace began growing nashi pears in 1987. It all started when the Matangi couple purchased some root stock and budwood, grafted their own trees and planted about half a hectare. They now have 2.2 hectares all under bird net. “Our first crop was picked in 1990 but the birds ate most of them, especially the mynas,” says Ian. After purchasing some second-hand netting and using poles he’d bought from his fencing contract jobs, Ian solved the bird problem. Having read about nashi in the TreeCropper Magazine and assuming that, because the fruit was costly to establish, it would be a specialist type crop, the Wallaces thought the fruit would be viable on their block. But they were not alone. “Everyone thought the same, and thousands of trees were planted up and down the country.” As the nashi was an unknown fruit in New Zealand at the time, the only markets were export. Then came the realisation that growing nashi wasn’t as easy as it seemed. The fruit was prone to various growing issues and birds, and a number of orchards withdrew, as a result. By the 1990s the industry settled down, with about 60 growers nationwide. A local market developed. The Wallaces exported their large fruit and sent the smaller fruit to supermarkets and fruit stores. This continued into the early 2000s until poor export returns saw more growers pull out. As exporting became too small to interest exporters, all the fruit appeared on the local market and overloaded it. “Quality was variable and more people exited the industry,” says Ian. “From about 15-20 growers all packing their own fruit, we are now down to five growers and two pack-houses in the Waikato. In the 1990s, after realising a different approach to overseas marketing was needed, a dozen Waikato nashi growers combined and formed The Red Ribbon Group.

Nashi couple reap the fruits of perseverance Continued from page 1 They branded their own packaging and employed a quality control expert to visit all the pack-houses to ensure Red Ribbon fruit was packed to a consistent standard. The Red Ribbon name was trademarked for fresh fruit. “This worked well and our fruit became sought after, particularly in Asia,” says local orchardist, Ian Wallace. The Red Ribbon name was later used in the New Zealand market. Today, five Waikato growers supply the New Zealand market. There are no exports other than small shipments into the Pacific Islands. Only 12-15 growers exist nationwide. This is a far cry from its heyday when the nashi industry had a growers organisation and a product group for export markets. Growers are now part of Apples And Pears NZ, formerly Pipfruit NZ.

Nashi grower Ian Wallace

Ian and Mary Wallace have found the Waikato suited to nashi. “They need a cold winter and warm wet summer, which we get most years.” However, some warm wet winters have caused bud jump and light crops. The couple have adapted their pruning, which has helped. “After 20 plus years we are still learning.” They have tried a couple of by-products, including dried fruit. Although the fruit dries reasonably well, it has a spongy texture due to a high water content. Juicing nashi began around 2000. Greenways processed the fruit and bottled the juice, and labels were made for 2L and 330ml bottles. For the last few years, only 2L bottles were produced and now that Greenways has ceased production, the Wallaces are looking at alternatives.

Autumn heralds an abundance of fresh fruit and veg With autumn here Victoria Square has been gorgeous on the mornings of the Cambridge Farmers’ Market, says former manager Michaela Svagera, who recently returned to the USA. “All the changing foliage and crisp mornings have created a very special atmosphere.” The market is sought for its community atmosphere, beautiful tree-lined setting and selection of fresh local goods. Autumn brings with it a cornucopia of seasonal fruits and vegetables, including apples, pears, fejios, silverbeet, spinach, rocket, kale, beetroot, leeks, turnips, carrots, pumpkins and squash. Seed garlic is also available for those who want to plant their own garlic on the shortest day next month. Buying at a farmers’ market is a great way to connect with food, learn what’s in season, and discover how and where the goods are grown. There is a great community atmosphere, connection between producer and consumer, and sharing of recipes, planting tips and knowledge. The market comprises a mix of Waikato farmers and small Waikato businesses that produce locally. Eating local and in season is a way keeping our carbon footprint low.

Federated Farmers has applauded the decision not to proceed with a capital gains tax, and praises the coalition government’s willingness to put well-reasoned and practical considerations in front of ideology. The organisation is heartened that the coalition partners listened to the widespread concerns voiced against a CGT and took them on board. “A capital gains tax has too many downsides, including massive administration costs and the potential to put the handbrake on the progress of small and medium businesses vital to our economy,” Waikato Feds president Andrew McGiven says. “It seems to us that New Zealand First has been pivotal in this decision, and we appreciate their pragmatism.” McGiven said Fedfarmers is also pleased with the assurance that there will be no resource rental for water or fertiliser tax - at least in this term of Government.

Ian reckons the most rewarding thing about growing nashi is watching someone eat one for the first time and realising how good it is. There is also the satisfaction of growing nashi using minimal chemicals. “The fruit is residuetested before picking so we know consumers are getting fruit that not only looks good but has low or nil detectable residues.” As nashi are resistant to most fungal diseases in New Zealand, no fungicide programme is required. After a couple of slow years marketing this year looks positive for the Wallaces. “The fruit moving and prices holding steady so maybe we will stay in the industry a little longer!”

Two champions World champion to stand at Cambridge Stud in two years Last year Cambridge Stud was delighted with the acquisition of top rated three year old, Almanzor, to stand in 2018, so the recent acquisition of world champion Roaring Lion has the team over the moon. Henry Plumptre, CEO Cambridge Stud, says that to be able to secure two European champions in two years is extraordinary. “It is very exciting for Cambridge and Australasian breeders. Roaring Lion is hugely sort after in the UK in his first season at stud, standing at GBP40,000. European breeders have recognised his brilliance and he is over subscribed.” His sire, Kitten’s Joy, is the reigning champion sire in the USA and has been Champion Turf Sire for the past six years. The arrival of Roaring Lion in New Zealand sees the beginning of a new relationship between Sheikh Fahad, Tweenhills and Cambridge Stud. David Redvers, racing manager to Sheikh Fahad Al Thani’s Qatar Racing operation, has committed up to 20 mares on behalf of Sheikh Fahad to Roaring Lion in the Southern Hemisphere each year. Brendan and Jo Lindsay were present at Ascot to see Roaring Lion win his last Group 1 in the UK and knew, when they saw his ability first hand, that he had to come to Cambridge. The Cambridge Stud owners were extremely grateful to David Redvers and Sheikh Fahad for giving them the opportunity to bring a horse of Roaring Lion’s calibre to their local stud. “We were there on Champion’s Day and his ability to drop back to a mile and still beat the best in Europe left us in no doubt that we had to secure him for New Zealand.”

Cambridge Stud has acquired the southern breeding rights to world champion three year old Roaring Lion. The champion had an outstanding year in 2018 winning four Group 1 races, displaying great courage and tenacity to beat the best in Europe. The wins are all the more remarkable given that all were weight for age races against older horses, an elite achievement that earned him a Timeform rating of 130. Chairman of Qatar Racing, Sheikh Fahad Al-Thani, said he and his brothers enjoyed their greatest days on the racecourse courtesy of Roaring Lion. “To own a horse like him is truly incredible and we believe he will prove a magnificent influence as a sire in both hemispheres.” The family expressed its delight in the support breeders have shown in Europe. “I feel confident Roaring Lion will be as popular in the Southern Hemisphere and look forward to seeing his first progeny both here and around the world.” The Qatari royals were drawn to Cambridge Stud due to both its heritage and Brendan and Jo Lindsay’s commitment to the New Zealand thoroughbred industry. “Their determination to secure our world champion was beyond admirable and we are committed to assisting them realise his potential worldwide.”

First anniversary of ownership

It may only have been 12 months, but Brendan Lindsay says the year has absolutely flown by. April 4 marked Cambridge Stud’s first anniversary under his and wife Lindsay’s ownership. “Jo and I are so excited about the future, particularly with our two new European stallions, and as a result of the overwhelming support, we have received. “We wish everyone success in an industry we very much enjoy being a part of.” Congratulations from Cambridge Stud CEO Henry Plumptre

“Congratulations to our owners for their courage to take the plunge with Cambridge and thanks to everyone for making the first year so great,” says Cambridge Stud CEO Henry Plumptre, who a year ago sat at the Inglis sale debating the pros and cons of buying into Almanzor. “We had not really discussed redevelopment nor had we really decided in which direction Cambridge would be headed.” What a difference a year makes, muses Plumptre, reflecting on the successful bid for their inaugural sire, Almanzor, who proved

very popular with New Zealand breeders, the planning and development of a major overhaul for all Cambridge infrastructure, a successful breeding season and a 100 per cent clearance for yearlings at their first sale. “All this was topped off by the announcement on the eve of our first anniversary that we were standing the 2018 best in the world, Roaring Lion, at Cambridge this year. He has been very well received.” Plumptre looks forward to the next year and beyond.

Wintering practices are critical

Soil health damage during winter has been recognised as a significant issue for the farming community, says Waikato Regional Council sustainable agriculture advisor, Bala Tikkisetty. “It coincides with high stock densities and high soil moisture conditions.” Stock wintering systems are thought to play a major role in water quality and soil health

because stock graze at a time of year when there is much hydrological activity that moves contaminants off land and into nearby water bodies. “It’s general practice during winter to graze stock intensively on winter forage crops supplying large quantities of feed in a relatively small area,” says Tikkisetty who advises farmers that it is

the right time to consider the impact of stock wintering practices on soil health and water quality. “These practices can impact surface and ground water quality, as well as soil quality due to heavy concentrations of dung and urine, the creation of bare ground and the risk of run off contaminants including sediment in wet weather.”

Erosion is the process whereby the land surface is worn away by the action of water, wind or other geological processes. The resultant displaced soil is known as sediment. Sedimentation is the deposition of this eroded material. New Zealand loses between 200-300 million tonnes of soil to the oceans every year. This

rate is about 10 times faster than the rest of the world, and accounts for between 1.1 and 1.7 percent of the world’s total soil loss to the oceans, despite a land area of only 0.1 percent of

the world’s total. Many studies have shown that water quality guidelines and standards have been exceeded as a result of intensive wintering practices.

Persimmon season underway

The first day of the persimmon season got off to a busy start for Matangi orchardists Darienne and Ian Voyle. Fruit fans flooded in from Auckland and all over the region to get their hands on the orange gold. Typically, the 2ha orchard is picked clean in seven weeks, but last year it took only three short weeks and the couple are expecting another boom picking season this year. When the Voyles purchased their 4ha Tauwhare Road property 30 years ago they experimented with “the export thing” and sprayed for the first four years. “We didn’t like chemicals so we ditched them and have been pesticide-free ever since,” says Darienne. Their 700 trees are pruned and fertilised regularly. The orchard is solely a pick-your-own enterprise. “We discovered a good customer base in the local market,” says Ian. The fruit is especially popular with Asian and Pasifika families. It originates from China and has been grown in New Zealand since 1873. Pacific Islanders often compare it to the paw paw. As the weather doesn’t deter pickers, wet weather gear and a gumboot selection are available. Persimmons offer the health benefits of vitamins A and C but are high in glucose. Darienne has a few recipes on hand to give to interested customers. Her personal favourite is persimmon cake with cream cheese icing. She has also experimented with dehydrating the fruit.

In an effort to reduce the plastic bag epidemic, the Voyles collect empty coffee bean sacks which Darienne recycles into persimmon bags. And if anyone gets caught short when they’re at the orchard, Darienne has created a work-of-art mosaic toilet. While it may not rival Kawakawa’s Hundertwasser wonder, it may have the potential to put Matangi on the map.

Pink Ribbon Breakfast - Good times in cross country May 29 By Sophie Iremonger

Cambridge is going pink on May 29. Businesses and locals will be festooned in the pretty pastel to show their support for Pink Ribbon Breakfast. The annual breakfast event is Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s biggest fundraising campaign. Various fundraiser breakfasts will be hosted in the town.

Sandro Mota of STM fit held a restorative breathing demonstration as part of last year’s Pink Ribbon Breakfast.

Head along to a local participating café or restaurant to support their fundraising activities. The money raised helps fund innovative projects by some of the country’s top researchers, and supports patients and their families as they navigate through their breast cancer journeys. Last year $2.1m was raised in a huge collective effort. Ribbon Breakfast isn’t just about coming together and having an incredible time, it’s also about doing some good. Breast cancer touches so many Kiwi families. Taking part is a way of helping all those affected, as well as bringing New Zealand one step closer to its vision of zero deaths from breast cancer. The Breast Cancer Foundation is dedicated to preventing New Zealanders developing and dying from breast cancer and to improve the quality of life of those who have the disease. They do this by providing early detection education, supporting those with breast cancer, funding research and medical grants, and providing advocacy for those affected by the disease. Donations are distributed for breast cancer research and medical grants. An online support network has also been developed to connect breast cancer sufferers and encourage them to share their stories, ask questions and get support from a qualified breast nurse. Funds are crucial to ensuing everyone has access to the latest and most effective treatments, as well as support right through to their recovery. Nine women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day. They need your support. So come on out on Wednesday morning, bring your friends, a hearty breakfast appetite, and paint the town pink.

Churchill house earned bragging rights in this year’s cross country at Cambridge High School. The school house won by a fairly narrow margin in the annual sports event which took place on Wednesday last week. 732 runners took part in the school run – which requires all Year 9 and 10 students to take part in a 3.4k junior course, and challenges senior students to take part in an optional 5.1km course. No records were broken this year but some pretty stellar times were clocked in. Year 12 runner Ben Bidois pulled off the fastest run of all, finishing the 5.1km senior course in just 14 minutes and 29 seconds, followed by Year 13 student Willem Dikmans at 15 minutes and ten seconds. Year 12 runner Amelie Dirkman topped the senior girls with a time of 17 minutes and 25 seconds, followed by Year 11 Molly Davis at 18 minutes 46 seconds. Year 9 Jack Whittall was the fastest recorded junior boy, running the 3.4km course in 11 minutes and 18 seconds, and Year 10 Riley Wood was the fastest junior girl at 13 minutes and 37 seconds.

Swimmers earn national titles

By Sophie Iremonger

Savanna Bourke has made her breakthrough onto the national podium at the New Zealand Age Group Swimming Championships. The 13-year-old swimmer capped off the meet in Wellington recently with a bronze medal in the 400m individual medley and earning gold with the junior girl’s relay team. The series was a good warm up for the Cambridge swim team which is preparing for the New Zealand Open Champs in Auckland in June. Savanna was delighted with her third placing. She tested her luck in the same competition last year racing in the 13-yearold age group as a 12-year-old and failed to make the finals. Her club, the St Peter’s Swimming Club, finished seventh overall in the competition with a total of 18 medals earned by the 22-strong team. This included two gold medals in the junior girls’ relay finals – the 4x100 medley relay and the 4x100 freestyle relay – the latter of which was earned by

Savanna along with club mates Minnie Glover, Sarah Wilson and Danielle Joblin. That same team, but with Rylee Britton instead of Savanna, won the 4x100 medley relay. Riley picked up two silvers in her 15-yearold girls age group races, as well as places in several race finals. Her fellow relay team swimmer Minnie Glover managed to get the most medals of all the St Peter’s swimmers, picking up two gold relay medals and four individual medals in the 14-year-old age group. “I was really happy I managed to get much more than last time, last year I only got one medal, but that was a gold medal. I didn’t get any individual gold medals this year but I’m still really happy with my results and getting some new personal-best (PB) times,” she said. “I think the relay team did so well because we had already done some good swim times earlier in the meet, so we all felt quite confident going in.” Most members of the swim team recorded personal best times at the meet.

CHS football victors over St Peter’s

Cambridge High School’s First XI football team met the St Peter’s 2nd team on Saturday in a grading game held at home. In foggy conditions spectators were treated to an impressive team performance with a flurry of goals. The Cambridge High team dominated play with solid passing, forcing errors by the St Peter’s team which provided the chance to score. Special mention must go to Morgan Montrose for his hattrick and Wade Vincent for opening the scoring with a worldie of a goal. Final score 10-2 to Cambridge High. The game followed the season opener the previous Saturday, where CHS won against St Paul’s 8-2. In another local derby, Cambridge High’s top junior football team, the Colts, played away to beat St Peters 5-2. Supplied by Tommy O’Brien

ARE YOU READY FOR WINTER?

Radiator central heating for whole home comfort Radiator central heating offers a number of advantages, including the benefit of radiant heat over convection heat and the ability to heat an entire home evenly. Consistent, well dispersed heat can help eliminate drafts and damp. Central heating systems lend themselves to expansion, offer near silent running and can be retrofitted into most homes. They can also be combined with underfloor systems to improve heat distribution in multi-storey homes. The system consists of a boiler unit that heats water and pumps it through a network of insulated pipes into radiators. The most common heat source is a gas boiler running on either reticulated (piped) natural gas or LPG. Once the heat is released through the radiator, the water returns back to the boiler to be heated again. A control panel allows you to programme the temperature, according to your needs. There are times when you’ll want peak heat and periods of the

day that will be off-peak. Temperatures can be adjusted on a day-to-day basis. Each radiator has also an independent thermostat, which shuts the radiator off when the room reaches a certain temperature. This allows you to keep rooms at desired temperatures suited to your living and sleeping comfort, as well as keep a room cold if it’s not being used. A home with a consistent temperature has health benefits as there is no forced air circulation. This makes you less susceptible to colds and flu and creates a better living environment for asthmatics and allergy sufferers. Radiators are safe and efficient. There are no naked flames or hot elements. A central heating system will quickly heat your home as water transfers energy four times faster than air. Moreover, a single powerful heat source heating your entire home is comparable in cost to heating just two rooms with traditional heaters. Systems can be custom designed to suit each home.

Home heating housework

Chimney sweeping Chimney cleaning helps maintain a safe and warm environment. It gives peace of mind to homeowners as it protects from potential hazards associated with fires. An annual chimney sweeping is recommended as the best and cheapest preventative maintenance. Most solid fuel fireplaces can be successfully swept from below unless there is You should clean your chimney annually a blockage at the top. Chimneys that are not cleaned regularly can cause fires. This is due to residue that sticks to the inner walls of chimneys – or flues – which is highly combustible. Chimneys have the job of expelling substances emitted when wood burns. When these substances rise through the relatively cooler chimney, condensation occurs. This forms residue, of creosote. If it builds up in sufficient quantities and is not removed, it can ignite and cause a chimney fire. One of the biggest dangers is that creosote fires inside a chimney can burn undetected. So as a personal safety precaution, protection, get your wood fire professionally cleaned at least once a year. Cleaning glass doors and hearths Over time soot sticks to the glass doors of your fireplace. Removing the build-up is important for maintaining a clean firebox. Clean doors also enhance the aesthetics of your fire, allow you to see it burning and enjoy a cosier atmosphere. Some experts suggest using a razor blade to remove thick soot layers, Keep the glass clean and enjoy a cosy atmosphere. and soap and water to clean the thinner layers. Fireplace ash can also be used to clean glass doors. Scrub the area with newspaper that has been dipped in water and then in a pile of ash. The hearth of the fireplace can also be stained by soot. Regular six-weekly cleaning is recommended for keeping the outer hearth clean and soot-free. Concrete hearths can be cleaned with oxygen bleach; slate hearths require water and hydrogen peroxide; and brick hearths will respond to water, a scrubbing brush, and a special brick cleaner. Check the seals and ropes Door seals and ropes are vital to the performance of your fire. Check that they are intact, with no sign of damage. Seals expand when in contact with heat to ensure fire, and in some cases smoke, can’t move through the cracks. Airtight woodstoves and fireplace inserts have a braided fibreglass rope around the perimeter of the door to create a seal. A good door seal is vital to your woodburner’s performance. Check that the rope is in good order. It needs replacing when it gets brittle, breaks falls out or you lose the ability to throttle back your fire using air intake valves. Seals and ropes are available at hardware stores and heating outlets.

Winter Warmth FEATURE

FRIDAY MAY 17, 2019

ARE YOU READY FOR WINTER?

Choosing the right fire for your home Multifuel fires Multi-fuel fires can burn wood, coal, lignite, or a combination of all three. They can heat your home throughout the day and well into the night, and will

fire up easily in the morning to dispel the early chill. These high performance fires not only provide longer lasting heat, their multifuel capacity makes them cost effective.

Multifuel burners come in all shapes and sizes.

Fuels can be purchased according to availability. They also have the capacity to heat water and cook food. Multi-fuel stoves are said to be slightly less of a fire risk than wood stoves. They will not readily produce carbon monoxide when not using wood. Low emissions burners Low emission burners, like the Pyroclassic, offer superior burning technology and have an edge over other wood fires. Their ceramic fire chambers retain heat like a kiln. The burners have the capacity for impressive heat storage, which effectively means extended burn times, a consistent release of heat, and less time having to reload with fuel. The heat storage capabilities of the fire chamber means the burners consume considerably less firewood, as well.

NZHHA – the New Zealand Home Heating Association The New Zealand Home Heating Association is a trade organisation of industry professionals. Established in 1985, it was formed by a group of wood heating manufacturers and retailers who saw a need to improve the standards of product and workmanship within the industry. Most of the country’s leading woodfire manufacturers, retailers and installers belong to the NZHAA, which is dedicated to providing professional services and advice to its members and their customers. It has become the industry’s mouthpiece.

With emission rates less than halt that of most other clean air wood fires, low emission burners are an environmentally-friendly heating choice. And as some models can be fitted with a wetback, there are the added benefits of more sustainable and more affordable long-term water heating. They can also be used for slow cooking and boiling the kettle. Fully automatic air controls means the fire controls the rate oxygen is supplied to the wood fuel, allowing it to maintain the right burn temperatures for a complete secondary combustion. The glass stays clean throughout the burn cycle, and tars and poisonous unburnt gasses are not released into the air to cause environmental harm. There are models to suit various sized homes.

The association not only plays an active role in the development of appliance and installation standards, nationally and internationally, it is also prominent in the development and promotion of clean air standards, and energy and resource conservation. NZHAA strives to ensure standards are maintained at all levels within the industry and to this end, the association runs a certification for installer and retailer members. Being affiliated with similar trade groups and organisations throughout the world means the NZHAA has an

international reach. The association’s primary aim is to provide the solid fuel heating industry with professional development, advocacy and advice for the purpose of promoting renewable and sustainable sources of energy. The overarching goal is to achieve a cleaner New Zealand through less air pollution. What can the NZHAA do for you? If you’re looking for advice on wood burners and how to use them, wood burner installation, or someone to clean your chimney, the association can put you in touch with local members who can help.

with Jan Bilton

Greens are gold There’s a new leaf in the superfood stakes. Or is it so new? Kumara leaves are becoming popular not because of their novelty value but because recent research undertaken in the USA recognizes that the leaves have three times more vitamin B6, five times more vitamin C, and almost 10 times more riboflavin than the actual kumara. Nutritionally they are similar to Mr superfood spinach. However, they have less oxalic acid. Kumara leaves are available from specialist greengrocers, the local farmers’ market and, of course, growers. They are great in smoothies, stir-fries or sautéed with garlic and combined with a little coconut cream. And although ‘curly superfood kale’ looks a little more sophisticated than old-fashioned silver beet, the latter — alternatively known as Swiss chard — is also full of good nutrition. Besides, it has a noble past. It’s one of the vegetables recorded as growing in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon; it appeared in the writings of Aristotle; and it was prominent in George Washington’s garden at Mount Vernon. And don’t ditch the stalks. In Europe they are puréed with cream and nutmeg and also pan-fried with garlic. Or try them stir-fried then topped with blue cheese and walnuts.

KUMARA LEAF TAGLIATELLE

SHANGHAI CABBAGE FRITTERS

Refinancing Your Mortgage 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:

2 medium Shanghai cabbages 1 small onion, diced 1 medium potato, peeled and shredded 2 tablespoons each: chopped coriander, parsley 1/2 cup each: self-raising flour, water 1 egg, lightly beaten salt and pepper to taste 1 teaspoon each: ground turmeric, grated root ginger 1-2 tablespoons rice bran oil Finely slice the stems of the Shanghai cabbage then chop. Finely slice the leaves and place both in a large bowl. Add the onion, potato, coriander and parsley and mix well. Whisk the flour, water, egg and seasonings and until well combined. Stir into the veggie mixture. Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan. Take heaped tablespoons of the mixture and place in the pan. Cook until the fritters golden underneath then flip over and cook the other side. Keep warm in the oven while preparing the remaining fritters. Great served with yoghurt, lemon wedges and chutney. Makes 12 fritters.

LITTLE GREEK-STYLE VOL AU VENTS

Spinach leaves could replace the kumara leaves. 125g kumara leaves, stalks removed 150g tagliatelle 3 cloves garlic 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 small red capsicum, sliced 50g fresh mozzarella Wash and finely slice the kumara leaves. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and cook the pasta until al dente. Add the kumara leaves during the last 2-3 minutes of cooking. Meanwhile, crush the garlic and salt together with a heavy knife, until a paste forms. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and stir-fry the capsicums and garlic, until just tender. Drain the pasta and kumara leaves well and add to the capsicum mixture. Toss to combine. Serve topped with the mozzarella. Serves 2.

MORTGAGE MATTERS

An economical take on Spanakopita. Remove the thick silver beet stems before weighing. 200g trimmed silver beet 1 shallot, diced 1 teaspoon fennel seed 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 large egg, lightly beaten 2 tablespoons milk 100g feta cheese, crumbled 24 mini baked vol au vents Chop the silver beet leaves and place in a microwave jug. Cover and cook on high for about 3 minutes, or until limp. Cool then chop finely and squeeze dry. Sauté the shallot and fennel seed in the oil, until softened. Whisk the egg and milk, until combined. Add the silver beet and feta cheese. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Place the vol au vent cases on an oven tray. Fill with the silver beet mixture. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the filling is set. Makes 24.

• 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.

Michael Neels from the Cambridge Bridge Club was one of four people to win the Waikato/Bays Regional Inter-Provincial Trials on the weekend. Along with his partner Ella Gray from Hamilton, and Julie Sheridan and Karen Martelletti from Tauranga, the team were named as a regional representative team to compete at the National Inter-Provincial Bridge Tournament. It was a fabulous weekend of bridge at Tauranga during the trials with representatives from nine of Waikato/Bays clubs being selected to play for the region at nationals. The annual competition, a premier event on the New Zealand bridge calendar, will take place in late November in Christchurch. Teams from each of New Zealand’s seven regions will compete for the honour of winning the Dougal McLean Trophy,

which is awarded to the region which obtains the most points amongst its combined teams. Four players from four

different grades – open, intermediate, seniors and women – now carry the hopes of our region. We believe the Waikato/Bays

teams have a fantastic chance! Our hopes and best wishes go with them. Supplied by Cambridge Bridge Club

They have an eye on the future of how best to meet the needs of our community and work with a stable team of care professionals. We’re on the search for a Practice Nurse who can hit the ground running. This means being trained and experienced in: • • • •

Before School assessments Vaccinations Smears Diabetes Reviews

You need to hold a NZ practicing certificate, have the ability to communicate well, and have a great patient-focused attitude. Experience in COPD and other respiratory conditions is an added advantage. The ability to understand and use a patient management system is a vital part of the role. Ideally we’d love to find a full-time nurse but we understand that a 4 day working work might suit you better. You must be able to support our early evening programmes and share the Saturday morning roster.

Free tree giveaway supports climate action By Viv Posselt

At least 100 young trees will be given away for free on Friday May 24 as the Cambridge Tree Trust steps up in support of another climate change awareness strike by New Zealand students. Friday May 24 has been picked for a second strike by participating students. The first such event, on March 15, saw thousands of school pupils take part in about 40 climate demonstrations across New Zealand, joining over a million students from more than 120 countries calling for stronger action on climate change. The movement was started by 16-year-old Swedish activist and strike leader, Greta Thunberg. The Cambridge Tree Trust has called its supporting initiative ‘Free Trees – Plant for the Planet’. Tree Trust members John and Jane Moodie said the idea had “grown from seed” after the Christchurch attack, offering people an alternative way to show support for climate change action. “I thought that if people were feeling anxious about being in large groups, they could simply plant a tree,” said John. “Planting a tree is one of the few things an individual can do to help in a small way, and in a way that will continue to benefit the climate over many years. “We want to highlight the fact that each of us can make a positive contribution, and we are supporting these young people up and down this country, and elsewhere in the world.” Jane said the 100 or so trees being given away would include totara, kauri, pittosporum, pseudopanax, ribbonwood and flowering ash. “There will be a mix, but the trees are mainly natives.” The giveaway will be held next to the Cambridge Town Hall from 11.30am next Friday. One banner will declare “Free Trees – Plant for the Planet”, while another will announce the Tree Trust’s support for the students’ international movement for climate change action. Cambridge Tree Trust chairman Eric Todd said once the first 100 trees had gone, more would be brought in if there was sufficient interest. “At the moment, we have so many projects underway that we can’t keep up with the planting. So this initiative will Jane Moodie, Eric Todd and John Moodie with some of the young trees to be given away by the Cambridge Tree Trust next week in support of climate help us as well,” he added. change action.

Lily’s in eleventh heaven… By Sophie Iremonger

Lily Greenough decided what her older brothers could do, she could do. Her Cambridge brothers Jack and Bennett Greenough made the Mighty 11 New Zealand BNZ team when they were 11 – prompting Lily to set herself a goal of matching their effort. She’s achieved that – and been made captain of the team to travel and take on Australia at Queen’s Birthday Weekend as well. The Year 7 St Peter’s student will lead the New Zealand side in a two-part junior test team series. The team was named after Mighty 11 trials during the National BMX Champs at Easter. “I’m really happy with it, even happier since I made captain,” said Lily, who has been riding BMX since the age of four after following her brothers into the sport. The series is unusual for BMX. Usually racing sees individual riders competing against each other, but in Mighty 11s comprises a team of four racing against each other in the same event. A girls’ and boys’ competition are held concurrently. It’s not her the first time Lily has represented New Zealand. The four-time national champion has attended the World BMX Championships six times, making the podium three times. But having a competitive edge isn’t why she takes part in the sport. “It’s just really fun,” she said. “You get to come outside and ride your bike on the track and learn new skills.” The New Zealand team has a final team training next weekend before flying to Australia on May 31.
