Another boost for cycling By Claire Robson

A new cycle initiative is coming to town, aiming at getting more visitors out and about enjoying the region. Cycle Cambridge is the brainchild of the Brian Perry Charitable Trust, which is continuing its work supporting healthy outdoor pursuits in the Waikato. With 10 e-bikes and 10 regular bikes in a range of adult and kids’ sizes, as well as a tandem bike, Cycle Cambridge will begin providing package cycle escapes later this month, with all proceeds going back into the community. Supporters of the Te Awa River Ride, the Avantidrome and next January’s Three Peaks Ride cycling festival, Brian Perry Charitable Trust general manager Jennifer Palmer said it made sense for the trust to move into offering packages. “There’s a lot of strings to the bow and this is just the latest”, she said, adding that ideally the packages would show Aucklanders that “they don’t need to go to Otago” to ride the rail trail, as there is a great alternative closer to home. As well as recreational packages, there will be corporate offerings and casual bike hire for those who want to go biking a bit closer to home. This hire option – two hours, half-day or full-day hire – will Continued on page 3

You are not imagining things if you feel as though October is chocka-block with awareness events, a quick and very unscientific check of the Interweb shows that only May has as more things diarised to be aware of. Not that it’s a bad thing, but I wonder if there’s a bit too much of it going on at the moment what with Health Literacy Month, Breast Cancer Month, Mental Health Awareness Week, Stroke Awareness Week, World Obesity Day, Get Ready Week and Global Handwashing Day (I don’t know how that’s any different from the World Hand Hygiene Day in May, but never mind…) among other things. My point is, I think all this awarenessing might just lead a person to become awareness-fatigued, longing for the days when a month was just a month containing normal calendar events, such as birthdays and paydays. Unquestionably all of these events are important in their own way, don’t get me wrong, it’s just easy to feel a bit swamped by it all. Maybe we should establish an Awareness Month Awareness Month in January, so everyone can take stock of

Letter to the editor Editor, When I arrived in NZ in 1971, car registration, including third party injury insurance, was about $21 a year. Petrol was 10c a litre. ACC in 1974 replaced third party insurance with a levy, which was increased year by year – increasing to nearly $200 by about 2014. Over the past four years or so levies have dropped to about $37 a year. Total rego for 2018-19 is, I believe, $99.02. Running an un-registered, frequently un-warranted vehicle, unsafe or modified resulted in pursuits and crashes costing ACC (that’s the rest of us) while the ‘free loaders’ contributed nothing. Increasing the ACC levy on fuel enables the government to force free- loaders to pay their dues. My extra fuel cost on 10 litres will be less than $1 a week. Simon Bridges asserts that motorists will be severely hurt by extra fuel costs. When did he last bear his own motoring costs? People interviewed on TV compared Australian fuel prices. Hey! This is New Zealand, Aussies pay thousands a year in rego and insurance. A flow on effect might be an increase in drive away petrol thefts like there was when the price of cigarettes went up, but I doubt it. Brian Dunstan (Abridged)

Get Ready Week at Bunnings

Neighborhood support stands in-store provide Bunnings customers with helpful information on how to prepare for emergencies. To celebrate Get Ready Week (October 13 – 22) the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management is teaming up with Bunnings to raise awareness of how to prepare for emergencies in the community. Bunnings stores across the country, including here in Cambridge, will be promoting emergency preparedness through a range of initiatives, from information tables to educational Kids Workshops with helpful resources available for customers to take home. Residents are invited to head into the local Bunnings store to check out free Kids DIY Workshops this Saturday and Sunday, October 13 and 14. The Kids ‘Get Ready’ DIY Workshops will offer informative and interactive ways for children to learn important messages, whilst creating a practical emergency contact board, wrist brand or bookmarker with vital information on what to do if disaster strikes. Additionally, Bunnings Cambridge

will be taking part in the New Zealand ShakeOut, the country’s national earthquake drill and tsunami hikoi, at 9.30am on Thursday, October 18. Sarah Stuart-Black, Director of the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management said, “New Zealand ShakeOut is a great opportunity to make sure your family is prepared in an emergency.” “We know that when kids are involved in preparing for emergencies and learning about natural hazards, they encourage their families to be more prepared and play a more active role in responding to and recovering from disasters. Families can create their own household plan at www.happens.nz.” Neighbourhood Support will also be at selected stores with helpful information and to answer customer questions about preparing for emergencies. To sign up to take part in New Zealand ShakeOut, visit: www. shakeout.govt.nz.

Remember your bags tomorrow By Claire Robson

Plastic Bag Free Cambridge is hoping the town will collectively turn its back on plastic shopping bags tomorrow, October 13, opting instead to take reusable bags to the shops. It’s a cause that’s gathering momentum, with Countdown going plastic bag free from Monday, and the PBFC collective is hoping the new mindset will stick. PBFC organiser Sam Brydon said: “Plastic bags are just one small part of the single use plastic problem, but they are one of the easier fixes, because there are so many reusable bag options available now. I hope the town can really get behind this and see it as a practice for the real thing, when single use plastic bags are hopefully banned next year. They do so much damage to the environment, on land and in our oceans, and they are completely unnecessary. I would love to see people remember their bags every day, but this is just a start.” Cambridge’s sewing collective – which has distributed around 4,500 free bags in town in the past year – will be handing out reusable bags at Vege Fresh and New World tomorrow and will have a stand at the Farmers’ Market, where they will be sewing bags

and putting on a photo booth. They will also be selling their fancier bags for a donation that will go towards covering the group’s ongoing costs, as well as running a raffle for a Christmas quilt and a zero-waste kit to help you go plastic-free. Tickets for the raffle will be $2 each or 3 for $5.

Continued from page 1 give curious locals the chance to try out an electric bike (e-bike), which Jennifer describes as a “great equaliser”, giving people of differing abilities the chance to ride together. “If you’re on an e-bike it makes longer distances more achievable,” she said, adding that it’s just like riding a regular bike until you get a “little kick” when the motor fires up. The Cycle Cambridge van is off being signwritten, and once it’s in action later in the month it will be put to work ferrying cyclists and their bikes and gear from their Podium Lodge base to Ngaruawahia. From there, the riders can tackle the Te Awa River Ride, biking their way back for collection at the Hamilton Gardens where the trail currently finishes. That’s where it stops for now, but with construction due to be finished on the Hamilton to Cambridge leg of the cycleway in the next three years, ultimately cyclists will be able to bike the whole 65km from Ngaruawahia to Lake Karapiro. And the plan is for those packages to include local experience-based businesses, such as Camjet, Hobbiton and the Waikato River Explorer, giving visitors a real taste of what the region has to offer. Check out Cycle Cambridge’s website – www. cyclecambridge.co.nz- (which should be up and running any minute now) for more information.

PBFC member Dot Harding will be putting her intricate 1,000th bag up for sale at Fresh Choice tomorrow at noon, to be put under the hammer by local auctioneer Steve Davis, along with a rimu tray made by Dot’s husband, Barry, and a handmade Christmas quilt.

Dot Harding’s Christmas quilt will be auctioned off at noon tomorrow at Fresh Choice in Leamington.

Readers have until Sunday to get their votes in for Bird of the Year - Te Manu Rongonui o Te Tau – Forest and Bird’s annual competition for the most popular native bird. Last year, the cheeky kea took out top honours, classified as nationally endangered with just 3,000 – 7,000 birds remaining. Forest and Bird runs the competition to raise awareness of the plight of our native feathered friends and their habitats, with a third in danger of extinction. There are 61 of New Zealand’s 168 bird species in the competition this year, ranging from the albatross (toroa) right through to the Yellow-eyed penguin (Hoiho), with the status of each bird listed beside it – doing OK, in some trouble or in serious trouble. To avoid the cheating scandal of last year, when more than 100 fraudulent votes for the white-faced heron were cast from the same computer, entries will be verified by email this year. The competition closes on Sunday, October 14, and voters can also go in the draw to win an expedition to the New Zealand Sub Antarctic Islands, Stewart Island and remote Fiordland, departing in December and worth over $9,500. So get voting, Cambridge, there are plenty of wonderful native birds to choose from. www.birdoftheyear.org.nz

Eel industry could face shortage

By Sophie Iremonger

The new eel fishing year kicked off last week on October 1, with catch limit changes coming into effect following a public consultation in July. The review of North Island eel sustainability by Fisheries New Zealand asked the public to have their say on whether the catch limit for longfin eels should be reduced by 15 per cent, and by 32 per cent for commercial fishermen, in catchment areas around the

Commercial eel fisherman and Eel Enhancement Company chairman Mike Holmes says a decision to cut longfin eel quotas could have serious ramifications for the industry, noting that local eel numbers remain healthy.

country including locally. Cambridge local Mike Holmes, Chairman of the Eel Enhancement Company (EEC) and a commercial eel fisherman, made a submission at the time – as did several other fishermen in the industry – to stick with the status quo. “We don’t have a stock problem, which would normally be why you would reduce the limit… we’re the first to ask for quota cuts if we need them,” he said at the time. After the public consultation wrapped up, Fisheries New Zealand announced recently that they would indeed follow through with the proposed quota cut. “That’s quite disappointing, not really surprising, but disappointing,” Mike said following the announcement. A spokesperson for Fisheries New Zealand said a large proportion of the submissions relating to eels wanted a reduction or complete closure of the longfin eel fishery. “Responses to submissions are just one of a number of factors that get considered when making decisions about fish stock management,” Jennifer Hape explained. “The most recent stock assessment showed that although all North Island longfin eel stocks were (with 60 per cent probability) at or above the level they need to be to ensure their sustainability, the stocks were not showing clear signs of increasing abundance. To make sure the stocks become more abundant in the future, the decision was made to cut commercial catch limits.” Mike Holmes, who runs the eel transfer at Karapiro dam – allowing eels spawned at sea to return up the river – confirmed that juvenile eel recruitment is better than ever, continuing its gradual increase in numbers. “It’s solving a problem that doesn’t exist… I’d say it’s more of a political decision than a scientific one,” Mike said. “We already had a big imbalance of what we could take, but now it’s even worse.” In many cases, shortfin and longfin eels share the same habitat. When fishermen bring in their nets, (which have escape shoots for the smaller eels) they sort through the eels to comply with the right quota for

longfin eels. Now with the quota cut further, it means more time spent sorting the eels. “There’s nothing to gain, it just adds more work for the fishermen, there’s nothing in it for us… we’ve just got to do more sorting now,” Mike explained. “It’s increasing our workload and knocking our profitability.” Mike expects the industry will now face a shortage of eels, raising meat prices and supply, and deterring the next generation of fishermen from entering the industry. “Fishing at the end of the day is about providing food. If New Zealanders want to eat eels, bad luck guys. “We’re thinking, what now, and what next? This is going to be an interesting year.”

White Pages goes ‘opt-in’

Yellow is about to introduce a new Residential White Pages and opt-in approach for the Waikato region, meaning locals will need to order the free book if they wish to receive a copy. In a bid to make it faster and easier for consumers to find business information in the White Pages section of the Waikato Yellow book, residential listings will this year be published in a separate White Pages Residential book and have a 10 per cent increase in standard font size. Waikato consumers will continue to receive the Yellow business directory unless they opt out of receiving it. “With the majority of print-based search seeking out business information, we’ve decided to separate the residential listings into their own book, which consumers can order online or by calling Yellow,” said Yellow CEO Darren Linton. “People that wish to receive the White Pages Residential book can still get it – or they continue to look online – they simply now have choice in how they access the information.” Visit www.ypgbooks.co.nz to pre-order the White Pages, which will be delivered after November 23.

Local apprentice the best

Cambridge Community Board update By Mike Pettit, chairman (Abridged) The CCB has asked council to look at putting chain-link fencing on the corner of Duke and Victoria Sts outside of Hello World and Stirling Sports. The other three corners around this round-a-bout all have them in place. From the Public Forum the board has also asked council to look at extending the car parking along Taylor St and the possibility of offering parking Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm along the old carpark access road leading to CHS, past the dog training area. These requests are to cater for Cambridge High School students who are parking in streets near the school. Though students are mostly parking legally, it is causing major congestion and inconvenience to residents in these areas, particularly for their visitors who have nowhere to park. We thank council who have acted on the board’s recommendation to erect 85 meters of low fencing along the Hora Hora Domain waterfront. The fence has been set back 8 meters from

the lake edge allowing cars and campers to park while boaties and picnickers space to also enjoy the water’s edge. The board has decided to reintroduce the Reserve and Landscape Committee which was disbanded in 2016. With increased activities in these areas through new subdivisions, green belt activities and proposals, tree plantings and Waipuke Reserve development it is timely we ensure there is a strong link between the community and the CCB. There will be various events taking place between November 4 and 11 to commemorate the end of WW1. Included is a light and sound show, art exhibition, street park boards, Armistice events at Lake Karapiro and the Armistice Civic Ceremony. As a community it would be wonderful to see us remembering, through attending one or more of the events over the week. The Board gave out $22,500 in its annual grant round last month, benefitting many organisations within the

Mike Pettit district. New dwelling building consents are up by one on the same period last year with 122 issued last quarter averaging $439,669 per house. The CCB have asked that the entire 1260 meters of new roading that runs from the round-a-bout between Thornton Rd/Robinson St and the motorway overbridge be sealed smoothly, as the current state is substandard. Our CCB meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month starting with a Public Forum at 6pm, where members of the public can come and speak. To place an item on the formal agenda, please do so at least 10 days before the meeting, either by emailing mike.pettit@waipadc.govt. nz or our CCB secretary, Noelene.Barr-Allwood@ waipadc.govt.nz or contact any board member by visiting the Waipā DC’s webpage.

Cambridge hairdressing apprentice Courtney Hale has just been named as one of the New Zealand Hair and Beauty Industry Training Organisation’s apprentices of the year, one of just four in the country. Courtney, a Year 3 hairdressing apprentice at Loulous in Cambridge, was named the top apprentice in the Northern Central Region, much to her surprise. “I was not expecting it at all,” she laughed, adding that it could be her ‘can do’ attitude that secured her the award. “Nothing is really a problem, and I’m keen to get involved with everything in the industry.” Hairdressing runs in the family – her grandmother was a hairdresser – and it was something she kept coming back to over the years, Courtney explained. As part of her prize, Courtney will receive $250 towards professional development and be flown to the Industry Awards ceremony in Auckland, where she will receive her trophy. At the ceremony, on November 11, one of the four regional winners will be named HITO Apprentice of the Year.

Teaming up to fight waste By Poppy Wortman

It was seeing the amount of waste leaving their building sites that inspired Jono McCullough. “I thought, ‘We really need to rectify this,” the Rob May Builders director said. “I started to do a bit of research into what we could do and how we could work better with existing organisations.” Teaming up with Leanne from Cambridge Bins, the two spent three hours looking at systems already in place and where there were gaps. “That’s where the challenges came in, to plug the holes that weren’t covered,” Jono said. “I approached Carters to look at what they do to manage things as a corporate and that’s when I had the idea of an up cycle. “I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool to do something with this instead of putting it in a bin or in storage to use later down the line?’. I talked to other businesses related to our trade and told them what I was thinking, and the buy-in from all was amazing.” Scheduled for Sunday, October 28, The Great DIY Garage Sale Event is organised by Rob May Builders in partnership with the Waipa District Council and Cambridge East Primary School. The purpose of the event is to avoid DIY products going into landfill, selling the building, renovation and landscaping materials at a discounted price with

all proceeds going to Cambridge East Primary School. Waste Minimisation Officer Sally Fraser said it “really excites” the council to see the leadership and ingenuity from the construction industry. “We are happy to support The Great DIY Garage Sale as it is allowing high quality building products to be used at home, keeping the resources in the community and out of landfill,” she said. “All the suppliers are dedicating their time to collect all their end of line and spare stock to bring it along. “This time and effort is really admirable and we are looking

forward to getting all those products into the hands of keen DIYers in Cambridge.” Jono said it’s all about awareness. “What we are hoping to achieve is an awareness to make a change, even if it is only small to start with,” he said. “And bringing in Cambridge East Primary School with their outstanding PTA who have picked up the concept and run with it has been great; educating the kids, raising funds for the school and being a great win-win for all.” The Great DIY Garage Sale Event will be held at Shaw’s Wire Ropes at 75 Victoria Road from 9am on Sunday, October 28.

Quickfire News Local guilty after fracas

A local man was found guilty of a raft of offences, including injuring with reckless disregard, after flipping a police officer onto concrete in an altercation outside the Masonic Hotel on Duke St in April. Tyrone Wollett, 33, was found guilty of obstructing and hindering police, disorderly behaviour, resisting police and injuring with reckless disregard, in a verdict delivered last Thursday at the Hamilton District Court. During the early hours of April 8, the court heard that Wollett emerged from “The Mudd” and began abusing police, at which point officer in charge sergeant Andrew Osborn told him he was under arrest. Wollett then flipped sergeant Osborn onto the concrete, resulting in a concussion that has kept the sergeant off work for six months. Sgt Osborn also sustained injuries to his right hand and arm, and his neck. Wollett was then handcuffed and taken back to the Cambridge Police Station, riding in the front seat of the patrol car, reportedly due to the crowd numbers and level of intoxication at the time. Judge Robert Spear said that Wollett had made allegations that Sergeant Osborn assaulted him on the way back to the station, but that these were not a matter for the trial. Sergeant Osborn will return to work towards the end of the month.

Petrol boycott gathering speed

Waipa Council’s Katie Wine, Asha Ryan, Issac van der Valk, Taylor McCullough, Sam Cunningham, Molly Harvey, Isla Newlands, Nate Newlands, and Rob May Brand Ambassador NZ Rower Lucy Spoors .

A call to boycott buying petrol on October 26 and 27 seems to be gathering momentum, with one of the day-long event’s organisers, Julia Roche, explaining that the event was designed to get New Zealanders to stand together as a collective voice, protesting against the ballooning cost of petrol. “We also need to acknowledge that we have become so reliant on fuel in our daily lives that it has got to this point,” she said. With petrol prices reaching a record high, there are petitions circulating and spot boycotts of specific petrol stations happening around the country as motorists feel the squeeze at the pump. Governmentimposed fuel taxes have pushed the price up by 6.8 cents in the past year, with the rest of the 39 cent rise covering the cost of crude oil and the margin going to importers. The Government is fast-tracking the Commerce Amendment Bill, which would give the Commerce Commission more power to examine fuel companies’ pricing structures, with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern describing Kiwi motorists as being “fleeced” at the pump.

Highest bridge on Hamilton section open

The highest bridge on the Hamilton section of the Waikato Expressway opened to traffic on Friday last week. The 18.8m high Kay Rd Bridge provides a key connection to Hamilton’s north-east suburbs. Other bridges are typically only 8m high to provide the required 6.1m clearance for vehicles on the expressway. An NZ Transport Agency Portfolio Manager, Darryl Coalter, said the amount of dirt moved to build the bridge made it the largest single excavation on the project. “144,000 cubic metres of soil needed to be excavated to cut the expressway route through the Kay Road ridge.

This summer, a final 1.7 million cubic metres of sand and soil will be moved, and a third of the road pavement will be constructed. When the Hamilton section of the expressway opens in 2020, it will improve safety, boost economic growth and cut journey times, enabling Cambridge locals to bypass the ‘Tron when heading to Auckland. The Huntly and Longswamp sections of the expressway are also under construction.

Cardholders urged to use cards more By Viv Posselt

Hundreds of locals were told last week that they should present their SuperGold Card at every opportunity – both to take advantage of the discounts offered at participating outlets, and to encourage more businesses to join the programme. The advice came from Wellingtonbased Tim Bryers, key account manager for the SuperGold Card with the Ministry of Social Development (MSD), the government department tasked with administering the card. He was addressing attendees at the October 3 SuperGold Card seminar in the Cambridge Town Hall, organised by local volunteer, Florence Shearman. Tim said the SuperGold Card discounts and concessions programme for those aged over 65 had been going for 11 years and was now an established part of New Zealand society. “There was some uncertainly as to its longevity when it started, but now people look forward to receiving their card. We hear stories of people who hold parties to welcome its arrival, and some who make SuperGold Card cakes.” He said around 60,000 new cardholders join each year. “There are now 735,000 card-holders across the country, and that number is growing all the time. With the

current demographic trends, it will hit the million mark in around 2028.” Also growing is the number of participating businesses and organisations. Most are increasingly aware, he said, of the significant economic value offered to the business sector by those aged 65 and over and want to be recognised for their support of the discounts programme. “Consumer spending by people aged 65 and over amounted to $21 billion in 2016. That is expected to rise to $94 billion by 2061,” he said. “Businesses need to be aware that the over-65s is a sector they should be talking to. The more cardholders who carry their card with them and are proactive about asking businesses if they take the SuperGold Card, the more businesses will be persuaded to come on board.” The programme has grown to include 9200 businesses and around 14,000 outlets nationwide. There are almost 100 businesses and outlets listed in Cambridge. Many display their SuperGold Card sticker prominently, and Tim urged those businesses without stickers to contact their local Work and Income office to access more. Research done recently by MSD around cardholders’ expectation and motivation revealed the discount areas

most valued by seniors. “Two themes came out strongly,” he said. “One was health-related, which included optical, dental and hearing, while the other was around basic living costs, things like utility bills and food. We are continually making inroads into bringing more businesses on board in those areas. “After that, they valued discounts in retail, on petrol and travel, and on entertainment. That research showed people valued the programme in terms of “need to have versus nice to have”.

Tim suggested seniors sign up for the SuperSeniors newsletter, which is emailed to cardholders and includes news on matters of interest to seniors, and lists specials. “If you’re not getting a newsletter, and you would like to, simply phone the 0800 number on the back of your card and ask them for one.” He also said that with technology now more integrated into daily life, MSD was investigating some improvements in this area to increase awareness around the benefits of the SuperGold Card programme.

Free talk to help students into work By Sophie Iremonger

Local teens, and parents too, will get an insight into how young people can put their best foot forward into the workplace at a free community event being held at Cambridge High School next week. Human-resources consultant Rebecca Jenkins will share a wealth of knowledge in her talk, “How to land your first job”, being held at 7pm on Wednesday, October 17, in the school hall. Rebecca also visited the school with a similar presentation last year but is back this month with an updated talk on how young people can better present their CVs and themselves, as well as what to expect in a proper working environment, including employment rights and responsibilities for both themselves and their employer. With over ten years’ experience in operations management and human resources, Rebecca became interested in helping young people in recent

years after becoming a step mum to two teenagers. “I saw that they struggled a bit with getting a job, and that started me reading up about it more on the teenage level,” she said, soon developing a plan for teenagers to prepare themselves for the workforce. The 60-minute talk will include a Q&A at the end, and Rebecca reassured those attending, “I don’t leave until all the questions have been answered.”

Some of Rebecca’s top tips: • Have a really clear and easily understandable CV, so that it’s easily read • Present yourself in a manner that you would expect to go to your grandma’s funeral • Doing the job right, follow instructions, if you don’t know, ask • If you are going to go for a job, lock down your Facebook or your Instagram or Snapchat, because employers will look at your social media to see what sort of person you are behind the scenes PROUDLY SUPPORTING

Collector’s window on days gone by By Viv Posselt

John Andersen’s kaleidoscope of tools, thousands of bottles and other items gathered over the past 60 years reflects much more than just six decades of enthusiastic collecting. They are a shapshot of memories held dear by all of us … minutiae that includes things like the tiny wooden dome on which grandmothers darned socks, gramophone needles, bicycle valves, metal toy vehicles, waxed matches, a sandsoap mould … even boxes of chocolate-covered Brooklax. Behind this labour of love is a delightful man in his late 80s, someone who has collected things throughout his life just because he “was always interested in old things”. “It came into my head one day that these things ought to be collected for future generations – so I started doing it.” That was over 60 years ago, shortly after he married his former schoolpal and Hamilton songstress, his late wife Elaine. They both sang, as it happens, and John’s place as

Bottles of all shapes and sizes fill an entire wall. one of six boys born to a keen horseracing family meant the Waikato was a good place to remain. His great-uncle Charley Jenkins was one of the country’s top jockeys of his day, while John and three of his brothers were boxers in Hamilton. John also played league for the city’s Franklin Rovers; so, what with his work, his sport and helping Elaine raise their four kids, it’s remarkable that John had the time to do any collecting at all. But he did, and the results now fill one room of his house and spill over into others. John says he was particularly lucky in that Elaine – who passed on a while ago - always supported his collecting. Each step tells a new story, and there are five extra banana boxes full of stuff he has no space to display. On the wall there is a certificate labelling the home they built as “House of the Year”, there are 32 fascinating shaving mugs in the cabinet, historic photographs retrieved from skips or found at fairs or markets, and stacks of WW1 and 2 memorabilia. Everything is collectible, and much of it is valuable. John has ribbons and a thick wodge of certificates from New Zealand antique fairs, most of them signifying awards his collection has gathered over the years. “I still go to as many fairs and markets as I can,” he said, explaining how everything to be exhibited is carefully packed and transported for its day of public viewing. “And I still look out for anything that I can add to my collection. There is so much material out there.” A recent fall resulting from answering an early morning door knock too quickly - a prank from a bunch of inconsiderate kids – left him in hospital with a blood clot on the brain and put an end to his driving days. That was a body blow for him. “But I have family around who take me to the fairs and markets and take me out and about when I need to go anywhere. I’m very lucky like that.” John hopes his collection will remain within the

family over the coming years. He’s had expressions of interest from overseas collectors and others and knows it would have real value to museums. “But my family are interested, and that’s where I would like it to stay.”

Airport adds flights

Hamilton Airport is continuing to expand its capacity with the announcement this week of a further six flights each week from Hamilton to Christchurch and Wellington. Air New Zealand will increase its direct HamiltonChristchurch capacity by 11 per cent from the end of this month, offering an extra four direct flights between the two cities each week. The new flights will depart Christchurch for Hamilton on a Tuesday and Saturday with return flights offered from Hamilton direct to Christchurch on a Tuesday and Sunday. Two additional direct flights will also be offered to and from Wellington from the end of October; one from Hamilton to Wellington on a Monday (departing at 1.55pm) with a new Wellington-Hamilton flight departing on Mondays at 9.45am. The new flights will see a further 408 seats each week offered from Hamilton Airport, meaning a total of around 7,000 passengers are likely to pass through the gates each week. At its annual general meeting last week Waikato Regional Airport Ltd (WRAL) announced a strong financial performance, declaring its second consecutive dividend to its five council shareholders – including Waipā – on the back of strong indications of continued growth. It also reported an 11 per cent growth in passenger numbers across the 2017/18 financial year.

Sunday’s Trash ‘n Treasure will offer a last chance to hear the Cambridge Brass Band before they set off for centennial commemorations in Le Quesnoy. Esteemed Canterbury musician Dwayne Bloomfield was here last weekend for the Cambridge Brass Band’s final full practice before leaving for France. The Cambridge Auxilliary Band, which includes 17 players under age 18 together with some senior players and about 20 supporters, leave soon on the group’s first official overseas trip in its 130year history. The trip celebrates the Cambridge/Le Quesnoy sister-city relationship, and the band will take part in events commemorating the centenary of Le Quesnoy’s liberation by Kiwi troops just before the end of World War One. At the heart of the main November 4 commemorations will be the band’s performance of a piece of music composed by Dwayne for the occasion, entitled ‘The Liberation of Le Quesnoy’. The internationally-acclaimed composer has long combined his musicianship with an interest in military history; and among his other works are a piece to commemorate Passchendaele, one for Gallipoli, and a composition called ‘7.1’ in remembrance of the Christchurch earthquakes. Dwayne spent 26 years with the NZ Army Band and is now musical director with Canterbury Brass. After Saturday’s practice at the Cambridge High School hall - with band members aged 8 to 83 - he said everything was coming together well.

Dwayne’s visit to Le Quesnoy helped provide background to the composition, while an interview with Colin Averill – son of the 21-year-old hero of Le Quesnoy’s liberation, 2nd Lieutenant Leslie Averill, who led his battalion up a ladder and over the wall into the town – provided more information. “I was able to read some of Colin’s father’s diaries - it gave me great insight into what had happened there,” said Dwayne. The band’s final local performance before leaving for France is at Sunday’s (October 14) Trash ‘n Treasure market. It will play alongside the Cambridge High School Concert Band in a joint fundraiser for the Cambridge Salvation Army Foodbank. Even as they continue fundraising to meet the $75,000 cost of going to France, the band is keen to give something back to Cambridge. Band spokesman and acting musical director Rob Hocking said fundraising to meet the trip’s costs was ongoing. “Anything people can add to that would be welcome. Ideally, we’d like a sponsor to come forward and support the band in the longer term. Plus, we would really like to help Dwayne get over there to conduct his special composition. Support has also come through The Warehouse neighbourhood programme, with money raised going to support junior players and purchase new instruments and music. Those keen to find out more should contact Kim Cross (kim.cross444@gmail.com or 021 107 8263) or go to the band’s Givealittle page at: https://givealittle. co.nz/cause/cambridge-brass-band-at-lequesnoy.

Model train lovers are in for a treat over Labour Weekend. The Greater Waikato Railway Modellers, in association with Castle Pamela and Tirau Primary School, is staging a model railway exhibition in the Castle’s great hall from Saturday to Monday, October 20-22. The exhibition will open at 10am and close at 3pm on both days. The GWR Modellers decided on a multi-faceted approach to this year’s exhibition. It approached Pamela and Kelvin Baker of Castle Pamela and Tirau Primary School principal, Siobhan Patterson, to see if it could partner with the school to raise funds for both Tirau Primary and the modelling group. As part of the build-up to the event, and to generate interest, the modellers took some shunting puzzles along to the school to let the pupils have a go. GWR Modellers’ spokesman Phil Murray said the morning proved to be so successful that the modellers hope to do it again, and perhaps extend its involvement next time to include a model-building session. Meanwhile, the Labour Weekend exhibition will feature about 12 different layouts, including Thomas the Tank Engine, a Christmas layout which may have a Santa train, and some interactive fun in the form of Drive-a-Train, and shunting puzzles. The Castle’s café will be open during the exhibition, and for an additional charge at the café, visitors will be able to visit the Castle’s museum and other exhibits.

Mountain runner finishes first world race only my second year in the seniors,” he said. “It was amazing to even be able to race there and it gives me a benchmark to improve on.” With such a tough course ahead of him, Matt started out the race “pretty easy” he said, “so not to get carried away in the excitement of the start. “It was crazy to race in a field that big and strong, it meant there was always people to run with and chase.” The first 1.3km of the course ran along a road, before it “shot up 2000m (500m ascent) over the next 3km,” Matt explained. “After this there was a couple of kilometres of rolling hills before the track shot up again insanely steep to the finish at 2500m. “It was a super tough race.” Matt has already switched his focus to the next challenge, planning to do a few trail races and track races in Christchurch, where he studies at Lincoln University, before getting back into training for the mountain running nationals and then the 2019 world championships, being held in in Argentina next year.

By Sophie Iremonger

Cambridge mountain runner Matt Scott has finished his stint at the World Mountain Running Championships with the satisfaction of having actually completed a gruelling 12km uphill course over rugged, high altitude terrain. The 2015 St Peter’s graduate started what would be a one hour and 17 minute race at an altitude of 1500m, ascending a further 1000m in height to the finish line. “The whole experience was crazy,” he said. “The steepness makes you work hard the whole time, coupled with the altitude I felt like I was going to have a heart attack. It was great crossing the finish line and being able to collapse on the ground for a while!” Although Matt experienced some high-altitude breathing problems during the first half of the race – held September 16 in the Andorran mountains – he “came right” over the second half and managed to finish 96th in the world. “I don’t really mind about being at the back of the pack, it was expected being

Cambridge-trained superstar retires Cambridge trained race horse Bonneval, a two-time New Zealand Horse of the Year and multiple Group One winner, has been purchased by Matamata-based Waikato Stud. “Without a word of a lie, the idea was thrown out there about 1pm on Friday and three or four hours later the deal was all but done,” Waikato Stud principal Mark Chittick saids earlier this week. Following two below-par efforts this spring, the decision was taken to retire the five-year-old, and the Matamata nursery acted quickly on the announcement to secure the daughter of Makfi. “She is on her way to Yarraman Park to be covered by I Am Invincible,” Chittick said. “She’s a beautifully-bred mare and while one mare won’t turn it around, it is a bit of a reversal of our top mares going overseas. It’s a little bit of a turning of the tide and we’re in this for the long haul. “Murray and Andrew did an incredible job and now it’s up to us.” Bonneval was a $150,000 Karaka yearling purchase in 2015 for Terry Jarvis, Alastair Lawrence and John Rattray. She was placed with Cambridge trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman and became a debut winner in the autumn of the following year. Six starts later she triumphed in the Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks (2400m) and crossed the Tasman to add the Gr.1 Australian Oaks (2400m) to her record, followed by victory at the Gr.1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) 12 months ago. But subsequently she suffered a suspensory ligament injury. Bonneval will now officially be in the ownership of Chittick’s father Garry. “Hopefully, the purchase will be of benefit to the New Zealand breeding industry and to us. It was great to get the deal done.”

Rutherford Park BUSINESS SHOWCASE

FRIDAY OCTOBER 12, 2018

The titles are through and building is set to get underway in Rutherford Park. The new upmarket residential enclave on Williamson Street contains 20 sites and is designed to offer a quality lifestyle within a secure gated environment. Marketing and Sales Manager, Deborah Bunyard, says design guidelines have been developed to enable the house designs to complement each other as well as meld with the subdivision's landscaping. “There is co-ordinated diversity. Much effort has gone into creating a cohesive environment where homes will blend well together yet still retain individuality.” All sites feature great building platforms that maximise the sun, elevation and outlook. Some have river views. With sections ranging between 400sqm – 582sqm, they are easily managed lots where maintenance won't be a big issue, over half the lots have already sold.

The development offers buyers the opportunity to personalise their homes. External fencing is in place and the private roading has been tastefully landscaped. Aesthetics have been designed by local company, Line and Design Landscaping. “We have the right demographic in the area and are seeing keen interest from locals,” says Deborah. “It's predominately Cambridge people who are buying but we've also had interest from people outside the region who are looking to move to Cambridge.” The developers have aimed high to achieve a premium neighbourhood environment. All homes will be high spec dwellings built by reputable Cambridge Homes. The well-located development is close to shops, schools and pools.

Rutherford Park Cambridge’s latest subdivision will be officially completed at the start of November. “We’re planning a public event to celebrate the completion where experts will be on site to answer queries and discuss building options” says Rutherford Marketing and Sales Manager, Deborah Bunyard (pictured above). Rutherford Park has already been keenly sought after. “We've had a lot of inquiries from locals wanting to secure a site and even though over half the lots have been sold there are still prime sites available,” says Deborah. The appeal is in the smaller section sizes, the ability to design homes to suit individual requirements, the secure setting and the proximity to town. All the sections provide the buyers the opportunity to design and build a home, working with an overall theme to suit their individual requirements. The plans that have been finalised for the sections that have already sold include a mix of single and two-storey dwellings. “It's really exciting to start seeing some of the plans come together and how each home has

been designed to allow individuality yet still maintain the cohesive unity we are striving to achieve,” says Deborah. The sections will suit buyers looking for a low maintenance, lock up and leave property. Ada Close, a private road within the subdivision, is named after Ada Rutherford. The Ada Rutherford Trust owns Rutherford Property Investments Ltd – the developer of Rutherford Park. The Trust’s founder, James Rutherford was a civil engineer whose successful business career spanned more than 60 years and took him around the globe, developing and investing in real estate. In 2015, the Christchurch-based trust selected Cambridge as the focus for its property investment funds and Rutherford Property Investments was assigned to work full time on the Rutherford Park project.

Waikato team named for Northland clash Waikato travel to Whangarei this week for a game at the Northland Event Centre this Saturday afternoon in week eight of the Mitre 10 Cup. The team set to face Northland includes Hautapu players Ayden Johnstone, Laghlan McWhannell, Jono Armstrong, Mike Mayhew and Mitch Jacobson. Waikato head coach Jono Gibbes has made several changes to his match day 23. In the locks, Tim Bond keeps the number 4 jersey and James Tucker moves out one position to blindside flanker to allow local player Laghlan McWhannell to join Bond in the second row. Tucker moving to blindside is one of the changes to this week’s new loose forward trio, with Cambridge’s Jono Armstrong named at openside flanker and Jordan Manihera returning from injury to start at number 8. With the inclusion of Armstrong and Manihera in the starting side, Adam Burn and Mitch Jacobson will make an impact from the reserve bench. Mike Mayhew returns from injury this Saturday and has been included in the match day 23 for the first time since his last match against Auckland back in week three. Kick-off for the Waikato game is at 2.35pm this Saturday, October 13.

Now only grey warblers, cheeky tui and a lone fantail sang as we enjoyed our lunch.

Locals excel at Halbergs Local Cambridge athletes Ryan Branje, Thomas Szabo and Andrew Fairweather were part of the 15-strong Waikato team that attended the 2018 Halberg Junior Disability Games in Auckland on the weekend. Ryan competed in a number of events and excelled in the wheelchair basketball, wining all four of his games and scoring four fantastic baskets. Thomas gave it 100 per cent all weekend and excelled at swimming. He

said to his mum after the games: “Mum I feel really lucky to have something different,” which shows the positive impact the Halberg Games had on him. Andrew was interviewed by Chris from What Now and this was aired on Sunday morning. He was also interviewed by Matthew Cooper after he had a fall in the 50m sprint and courageously got straight back up and kept running to finish the race.

Junior golfers face off By Sophie Iremonger

Cambridge hosted teams from around the country last week when the local golf club became the centre of the National Junior Boys Inter-Provincial golf tournament over October 1 – 5. Waikato Golf Chief Executive and tournament director Terry Booth said the event was fantastic this year with Thursday’s minor threat of rain proving to be just that, with fine weather prevailing throughout. “I was very pleased with the way our young ones came through the event at that level, it can only get better next year,” he said. With local golf champions Jordan Woodall and Charlie Smail now out of the team – having helped win the 2016 event for the Waikato team –St Peter’s student Oak Archvarin along with Jack Trower and Luke Kidd carried the responsibility of winning the event once again, with the addition of Logan Madden and under 16 players Todd Higgs and Ethan Price (Cambridge) on the team. “He did very well in his first year in this grade of golf,” Terry said of Ethan’s efforts. “We were

delighted to have him in the team and he played very well.” Two divisions were played during the tournament, with the winning team from each division facing each other for the top overall spot. The Waikato team made it into the final of division two but lost against Otago – the 2015 champions. After causing the upset of the tournament, defeating defending titleholders and hot favourites Canterbury in round three, Wellington cruised to a 5 – 1 victory in the final against Otago – the first time the region

has won the tournament in its 19 years. Their number two golfer Nicolas Changarnier also won the Player of the Tournament. Canterbury made up for their earlier defeat in beating Auckland for third place, while the developing Waikato team managed 9th place overall after defeating Taranaki. In addition to his team and the Cambridge Golf Club, Terry Booth gave “heaps of praise” to the Cambridge Caterers, GreenStaff, management and volunteers for another very successful Inter-Provincial Championships.

The Halberg games saw 150 disabled athletes from 12 regions competing in a wide range of sports. The Halberg Games is an annual three-day sporting competition open to 8-21-year olds with a physical or visual impairment. Hosted by the Halberg Foundation, the games is a unique event in New Zealand and give athletes an opportunity to enjoy the thrill of competition, healthy comradery and make new friends. Participants experience an authentic games village environment with a range of sports on offer and events including opening and closing ceremonies. The opening ceremony was well supported with both Prime Minister Jacinda Adern and Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy in attendance. For some athletes, the games are stepping stone towards future sporting goals and even representing New Zealand in their chosen sport.

The 2018 Halberg Junior Disability Games were held last weekend in Auckland, with a 15-strong Waikato team of athletes taking part. The team was proudly managed by Parafed Waikato, which has just celebrated their 50th birthday.

St Peter’s crowned national champs St Peter’s School has won the ‘AA’ Schick National Secondary School Basketball Championships for the third time in four years. The Premier Girls’ basketball team won the CA Clark Trophy, beating Hutt Valley 92 – 51 in the final. They won all eight of their games in the tournament, winning by an average margin of 47 points. Player Kirsten Rawson spoke highly of the team’s

coach Leanne Walker on Māori Television. “Our coach pushes us to our hardest every single training. We do lots and lots of shuttles, and I think that pushed us through, our fitness really backed us,” she said. “That, and the love of the game.” To qualify for the national tournament, the girls beat Hamilton Girls’ High School by 30 points in the

regional finals. Coach Leanne Walker said they stuck to their game plans and were disciplined. “The team stuck religiously to their game plan. Their defense at nationals was solid and it’s what stood us apart,” she said. Young Tall Fern Charlisse Leger-Walker scored 35 points, got 24 rebounds, six assists, and three steals. She was named Most Valuable Player for the 4th year in a row and made the tournament team. Waiata Jennings scored 19 points, Ella Bradley scored 21, and Jayze Waihi scored 11. Ella Bradley and Alana Paewai were also named in the tournament team. “Their tenacity, determination, and grit proved to be too good for any opposition teams. Offensively, our team was able to create many opportunities from turnovers, and when necessary showed poise to run through plays and make good decisions,” said Walker. “It was a solid team effort and the best thing is, the majority of this team will be back for another tilt at the national title again in 2019.” She said winning nationals was definitely the highlight of the season, but a close second was a trip to Gold Coast, Australia, where they were hosted by former professional NZ basketballer, Pero Cameron. The girls played a few games against the team Pero coaches, Hillcrest Christian College, and they attended skills sessions with the Gold Coast U16s and U18s. Player Emma Baker said it was a fantastic way to prepare for the New Zealand tournaments. “It was a good way to get to know everyone so much better and create a good, positive team atmosphere before going to regionals and nationals,” she said. The team’s players were: Charlisse Leger-Walker, Ella Bradley, Waiata Jennings, Emma Baker, Kirsten Rawson, Jayze Waihi, Ahi Williams, Owahini Kingi, Megan Bradley, Grace McGirr, Toha Kemp and Alana Paewai.

Mixed Triples champions found By Ray Rainsford, Cambridge Central Bowling Club Cambridge Central Bowling Club saw mixed triples played over the weekend in splendid conditions, producing bowls of a very high standard with all the top players engaged. The semis had Jenny Hobson up against Richard Thomas and Laurie Roycroft in battle with John Filmer. Four very strong teams as you would expect from the premier bowling club in Cambridge. In the first semi-final the Filmer went out to a nine-nil lead, but not to be outdone, Laurie Roycroft and his team came back to be nine-all on the 10th end. However, the lead was to differ over the next eight ends with both teams playing great bowls. But John Filmer and his team had the last say and went on to win

this tight encounter by 20 points to 16. Jenny Hobson kept the tournament open for the lady bowlers with a courageous team effort against Richard Thomas and his team, narrowly losing 12 to 13. Bring on the final, Richard Thomas verses John Filmer, two good teams and both with support on the sideline. Richard’s team went out to an early lead of five after the first two ends. But team Filmer came back strongly to down by just a few points behind by the 10th end. Consistency by the lead Merv and Margaret Marriot playing three, allowed Richard and his team to win a hardfought encounter by 19 points to 17. The champion team was Richard Thomas as skip, Margaret Marriot at director and Merv Cronin at lead.

Up-and-comers attend football camp

Attendees at the RHFA national camp. By Josh Easby

More than 100 young footballers have completed a four-day player development camp in Cambridge. The boys and girls, from all around the North Island, spent the course with the Ricki Herbert Football Academy at St Peter’s, Cambridge.

It was the fourth annual national camp held by the academy and players from it will be selected for international tours next year while one player will be selected to travel to the United Kingdom for three weeks with top London club Fulham.

understand what was required of players serious about their football ambitions. As well as on-field sessions, the course made good use of St Peter’s lecture facilities, swimming pool for cool-downs and introductory work on strength and conditioning to give youngsters an insight into the levels of physical work ahead as they move into adulthood. Herbert said he was impressed by the enthusiasm of the participating players. “These camps are not just about football development – they are a chance for players to develop socially and build their confidence away from home and their usual environment,” Ricki said. “The full experience helps them develop as young adults.” Players from the past two RHFA national camps have been sent to London to train with Fulham’s academy. Cambridge will also host a match

between two of the country’s best youth teams on Saturday when Hamilton Wanderers play Team Wellington at John Kerkhof Park. The match, which kicks off at 1pm, is part of the National Youth League. At the same time, a Cambridge select team will play a guest team from Kerikeri in an end-of-season friendly. Meanwhile, Cambridge Football Club are about to begin their summer programme with the start of the Onyx Summer League, a 5-a-side competition that runs weekly from early November to February. About 300 players – men, women and young adults – will participate in the league which caters for social players to those who take their football more seriously.

She shares first hand experiences of abuse, sexism and trolling, and looks at how women are conditioned from birth – including through the education system. “Taking a stand has never been easy. It’s even harder if you’re a woman. Feminism is still a scary word for a lot of people. Whether you’re warm, cold, young, old, attractive or unattractive, if you’re a woman who is

Happy Days: One for the ages By Sophie Iremonger Over the past few months I’ve watched almost 11 seasons of this classic show - it’s hilarious, and I love watching it. It’s Happy Days. The Fonz, Richie Cunningham and his friends and family made up the show which was number one on television in America throughout the mid to late 1970s, depicting 1950s - 1960s life in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At first glance, it seems to be a somewhat old fashioned or conservative show, but as you continue to watch you’ll hear some hilarious lines where you think, ‘did they really just say that!?’. Fonzie is probably the funniest and most entertaining figure, though Richie and his mum Marion often give him a run for his money. The Fonz, real name Arthur Fonzarelli, had an almost

magical charm about him, with an ability to woo almost any woman and magically turn things on or off with the bang of a fist or the click of his fingers. Apparently, he was so influential during the Happy Days hey-day, that when he got a library card in a 1977 episode, noting how “cool” and important it was to read, the American Library Association reported a nationwide 500 per cent increase in library card applications for 9 to 14-year-olds. Though some characters came and went, lives changed, and stories developed, the funny and light-hearted ambience that is Happy Days stays with the show throughout, and it’s something I’m sure people would still enjoy today.

WHAT’S IN THE BIG RED PHONE BOX The Girl on the Train by PAULA HAWKINS

Reviewed by Claire Robson There’s always some good reading at the Cambridge Book Exchange in the red phone box on Empire St. This week’s offering was The Girl on the Train, by former journalist Paula Hawkins. To my regret I had seen the movie of this before reading the book, and I can definitely say it would be more exciting for you to read if you haven’t done that. Still, it’s a clever book, alternating between narration between the main character, jilted alcoholic Rachel, murder victim Megan and Rachel’s husband’s new wife, Anna. I really enjoyed the way it was written, as it was easy to relate to each of the women as their own story around Megan’s murder unfolded. The moral of this story, as with many others, is that nothing is ever as it seems. Even the happiest couple can have secrets lurking under the surface, and appearances mean nothing at the end of the day. The describing of Rachel’s alcoholism was heart breaking and raw, as was the story of Megan feeling utterly trapped in her life. The three women this book revolves around are each compelling in their own way, and it was interesting to delve into the perspective of each. This book is a great read, especially if you haven’t seen the movie. If you would like to write a book review for the Cambridge Book Exchange on Empire St, please get in touch with Claire – claire@ cambridgenews.nz – to discuss.

Micah triumphant again

By Sophie Iremonger

Sailing hasn’t stopped for Cambridge’s Micah Wilkinson after winning the Cardiff leg of the 2018 Flying Phantom Series, continuing on the hydrofoil catamarans known as the Flying Phantoms to compete in the Qingdao Mazarin Cup in China. Teaming up with Tamahere’s Isaac McHardie, the Kiwi pair finished first on 110 points, well-ahead of three French crews placed behind them at 92, 91 and 81 points, followed by a Hong Kong crew on 67. The New Zealand duo exhibited exemplary sailing straight off the mark, keeping the rest of the twelve-strong international fleet at bay with flawless boat handling. The penultimate day

saw them score wins in every single race, moving into the finale with an impressive 18-point lead on the chasing French team, Culture Foil. “We’re absolutely stoked to have won the event,” Micah said at the conclusion of the regatta, held from September 30 – October 3. “It’s been such a wellrun event with some awesome racing. Yesterday was one of the best days I’ve ever had on the water…it was amazing.” Wednesday’s racing saw a big change from the 24-knot winds that opened the event. Race management opted for exhibition races only after winds dropped to 0 – 2 knots on the final day, still garnering cheers from the Chinese crowds surrounding Fushan Bay. “Unfortunately, the wind became really shifty… It was not possible to set fair

races,” explained Race Director Anne Mallédant. “The key point is to make the game fair. My decision was to go for nonpoint scoring races to put on a show for the many spectators on shore.” Micah will now switch to individual sailing for the time being, competing in the 2018 International A Class Catamaran World Championship in Australia next month. “December is when we really start getting into the New Zealand training side of things,” Micah explained, looking forward to re-joining his usual training

partner Olivia Mackay – who took time off after the Flying Phantom Series to have hip surgery. “Liv will be back, she’s hoping to be back in the Nacra 17 (sailing boat) in December, and then we can start our New Zealand training programme that runs through to March. “The World Champs are in New Zealand next year which is quite exciting.” “A big thanks to my family as always for their continued support, my parents and grandparents, Red Bull and HighPerformance Sport New Zealand.”

Gosford double for Marsh Cambridge trainer Stephen Marsh made a flying visit to Gosford, just outside of Sydney, on Thursday to saddle a pair of maiden gallopers and walked away with the lion’s share of prizemoney. Four-year-old mare Campari was successful over 1100m, with the stakes-placed daughter of O’Reilly coming from back in the field to round up her rivals and win going away. “She had a few issues and had been off the scene for a long time and came over off the back of one quiet trial,” Marsh said. “Class takes them a fair way and I thought she

was labouring a little bit coming into the straight, but she picked up nicely in the end and was strong late. “I think she will benefit a lot from the run. If she keeps fronting up, we will stay here for as long as we can.” A race later Group Twoplaced Pins mare Mark Two won her first ever race over 1600m. “A mile is just her warm-up distance and you could see she was on and off the bit, but that’s just her,” Marsh said. “She will go straight from a mile up to 2000m at least and she will carry on stepping up from there.” Both mares were ridden by Kiwi jockey James

Forgotten World and Taranaki By Ann Robson Visionaries Cambridge (Abridged)

On Saturday, September 29, members of Visionaries Cambridge Inc set off early to Forgotten World Adventures and Taranaki. We arrived at Taumaranui just in time for a coffee break before we reported to Forgotten World Adventures headquarters. We got onto mini buses and were taken to Cherry Grove to board the jet boats that would take us on the Whanganui River. What an exciting ride we had, zooming over rapids and close to banks, past boulders and driftwood. Now and then we stopped in the river and listened to the sound of native birds and admired the native bush. When we reached Ohinepane Landing we were picked up by the shuttles and taken to where the rail-carts (converted gold carts) were and to have a picnic lunch. Our guide Rob was very informative and soon we boarded our self-drive rail-carts to travel the 30km through beautiful farmland back to Taumaranui. We had several stops along the way and learned a great deal about this area, the times of prosperity and hardship. Many of the tunnels we travelled through were made by hand and a series of red brick tunnels were lined with bricks made in the area. Our first day away ended with happy hour and a wonderful home-cooked roast lamb meal at The Forgotten World Motel.

Next morning, we set off by bus on the Forgotten Highway to visit the Republic of Whangamomona. Lots of interesting old buildings to see there, and we continued along the Forgotten Highway to Stratford to see the only Glockenspiel in New Zealand perform at three o’clock. Beautiful figures popped out of doors as the story of Romeo and Juliet was told over the loud speaker. There were many highlights on this trip but one of the most outstanding was the Tawhiti Museum just outside of Hawera. We visited the Whalers and Traders exhibit. The dioramas were amazing, as was the modelling of the figures that lined the sides of the boat ride we took through the tunnels. Think Weta Workshops

meets Disney and put this Museum on your bucket list. It is world class. On Monday morning, we set off for New Plymouth along the Surf Coast Highway. We visited the Len Lye Centre at Govett-Brewster Gallery and the Motonui Visitor Centre, before we stopped at Mokau for a whitebait fritter. (Well you have to, don’t you?). This was a wonderful trip. Everyone was kind and went out of their way to show us a good time. Visionaries Cambridge Inc is a group for seniors, which runs a variety of activities including day trips, overnighters and the odd longer holiday. If you want to join us and make new friends phone Linda on 0220696891 or Barry on 0272538355.

Visionaries Cambridge shot the rapids on the Whanganui River recently.

FIRST MAN The true story of Neil Armstrong, a quiet engineer who rose through the ranks of NASA’s 1960s space programme to become the first man on the moon — in a journey that includes professional and personal tragedies. Oscar winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. This haunting, space saga reminds us that the path to the moon was littered with chaos and catastrophe.
