JUNIOR RUGBY LEAGUE The newest addition to the club is an exciting one for the community. Patea has not had a presence within the junior league competition for a number of years and if it wasn’t for the vision and hard work of Tere Diamond and his organising committee, the Patea Junior Warriors wouldn’t be happening.

The club will be fielding an under 7, under 9 and under 11 teams in the Taranaki Junior Rugby League competition. There will be a junior rugby league muster day for those interested in playing, details are as follows; • Saturday 9th February – Patea Domain, 10am to 12pm.

A number of younger players have joined the side this cricketing season and have been a great addition to the team. The club would like to thank Ash, Pratik and the whole Patel family for their continued support and sponsorship of Patea Cricket for the last few years. If you are interested in playing Cricket please contact our club Captain Todd Woollett. TENNIS Patea has had a long history of tennis over the years, with the Patea Club being one of the oldest in the country. The amalgamation with the sports club has been made to ensure this strong history continues into the future. Patea currently has a Ladies team competing in the Taranaki competition, which sees the team travel throughout the province to compete on Mondays. The annual Business House Competition will begin on 5th February. The competition will be held on Tuesdays at 6pm.

A Christian Word

God is love! The Bible tells us this so many times – God is love! The love of God is pure and holy, unfortunately our interpretation of love has been damaged somewhat and in certain circumstances it has a price. I.e. if you do this then I will do that, a barter tool. Love is giving, love always gives, it does not make demands or take. This love of God’s can only be experienced through His Son Jesus Christ, so that we can experience a love like no other. Love protects, it does not get jealous, it always perseveres, it does not judge or make rude comments. But a lot of people have not experienced this generous abundant never-ending love that Almighty God has. It’s free! It keeps on giving. God proves His love for us while we were, and still are, sinners. He cannot be untrue to Himself, because He is love, and to prove it He gave His only begotten Son as a living sacrifice to take away our sins … completely. He loves all His creation, you and me … regardless! But while we continue on in our sins we are getting further and further away from His love. The good news is that we can repent of these sins and draw near to God and He will draw near to God and He will draw near to you! It’s that easy! Trust me, once your sins have been forgiven by God only, your new life will begin to bask in His love. His love will lead you into all truths and set you free from fears and anxieties and disbelief, and whatever strong holds or addictions that are overpowering you. It is that easy and uncomplicated! Trust in God to do what He says he says He will do for you personally. As I said, God cannot be untrue to Himself, He has said He loves you – just you! Then what’s stopping you from having what God has for you? Why deprive yourself of this beautiful abundant love God has for you? Come on now!! Come Lord Jesus Ted Reeves, Patea

It was 2015 when the playground at Manchester Street was dismantled by order of the South Taranaki District Council, due to an expiry date and other unsafe features on the playground unit. It came out of the blue to the local residents in the street but was a complete shock to the children who were running home to their Nan Tina Fisher calling out that ‘the man is taking the playground ground!’ Tina Fisher and Laura Maruera both went to the Patea Community Board meetings to canvas their support to have a play ground replaced. Unfortunately, the Council were not going to re-instate a playground – due to a small population - but they encouraged the community to find funding to build it themselves. With approval to do that, a number of community meetings were held between the Council Parks Manager Kim Peters and interested residents, which resulted in a decision about a suitable playground unit. An application for funding was approved by McBroom Estate in July 2018 and they made a decision that the donation was to go towards the Bowl Swing. We were very excited! To cut costs the Council helped with a significant part in the softfall on the proviso that the community rake the bark. We haven’t got all the names of those that raked but they were led by Tina Fisher, Chontelle Nui, Dean Bryers, and include Tamika Te Poutokomanawa, Teiia & Daemon Tuhirangi, Te Atarehia and more tamariki from Warwick St and Manchester St tamariki. For that we are grateful. The Bowl Swing went up 21 November 2018 to the delight of many kids. Thank you for all the support of community that came to our meetings over these last couple of years and Thanks to the Patea Community Board for supporting us. We appreciated your support and advice, including previous Chairman Brian Rook. We are now in the process of assisting with the mosaic hopscotch led by Gabrielle Belz which should be set in pavers shortly, and a basketball hoop donated by McCarty & Hunger. Once the hopscotch is completed then we can celebrate and plan for future playground features. A mosaic sofa? A pathway for wheelchair access? Shadecloth? FlyingFox?

Taranaki Way Down South To many outsiders Taranaki is epitomised by the white snowy peak of Mount Taranaki and by the busy progressive bustling city of New Plymouth and many are surprised to find that Taranaki goes way down south to within 20 kms by road to Whanganui city and closer at some points as the crow flies. For those that don’t know the boundary is found on State Highway 3 at the Pakaraka Road turn off just past the Tauranga Ika Marae Nukumaru. The boundary travels up the middle of Pakaraka Road which dog legs sharply right to the east and goes parallel to the main road until it intersects with Rangitatau West Rd and then up the middle of that road which also dog legs to the right and further east. The last house in Taranaki is found about 8 kms down the road and these are the most easterly constituents of the Taranaki Regional Council and the South Taranaki District Council. Our family which owns Nukuhau Carbon Ltd owns a block of 40 hectares just past this point where we carry out our experimental trials on high active manuka cultivars and carbon credit harvesting in conjunction with Manuka Research Partnership Ltd and Massey University. My connection to the area and other land holdings our family has behind Waverley and Waitotara means I am down in these areas quite regularly. This brings me into contact as a Taranaki Regional Councillor with many constituents who tend naturally to look south to Whanganui rather than north to Taranaki. There is a feeling of natural feeling of disconnection among constituents when all of your local business is largely done in a neighbouring province. The main message of this piece is that people way down south are not forgotten and ignored and that they can easily access Taranaki Regional Council services and Council support. Taranaki Regional Council Headquarters were established in Stratford just to make it quite clear that we covered all of Taranaki and not just focus around New Plymouth. The Council has had a long history of dealing with the problems around the regularly flooding Waitotara River which has had major flooding incidents 13 times since 1860. As another example of support for this part of the region, the Council also has a lot of grant schemes like STRESS (South Taranaki Regional erosion support scheme) which can provide the majority cost for erodible areas, new forestry areas and fencing. This scheme has been recently up graded and extended. Land Management officers are active throughout the area seeking to assist farmers with farm plans, and advice and help to access government and regional grant schemes. The latest Forestry incentives offered under the billion tree programme are another new ways to boost farming in the area. The Council can provide very cheap native plants that can enhance the area and lists of these are also available on the web site. Advice and assistance with conserving and protecting native bush and wetlands of importance are available through the Councils sustainability programmes. The Council is not in the business of making large scale grants to local conservation and environmental groups however we have sponsored and supported the Wild For Taranaki Trust which is the place to look for such assistance. On the other side of things Taranaki Regional Council is also responsible for resource consents and for the reporting of incidents which concern our locals. Complaints will be quickly (often that day) addressed and if I am contacted I will immediately seek to find a solution to any problems. I have in the 2018 have had several requests for help so at least some people in the area know that although at the most distant point of the province we are listening and available. Please use the opportunity! In some ways the southern areas of Taranaki have the greatest potential of all. The dairy industry and the oil and gas industry which have contributed so much to Taranaki are increasing under some pressure and in fact the back country and the hinterland down south is an area which has been overlooked for a wide range of possible economic opportunities. As we progress further into the middle of the 21st century I think this is the place to be and to invest and that’s exactly what I am doing. Note That because of the vagaries of boundaries there are even some titles which are even further west assessable only off the Rangitatau East Rd which leaves the main highway 3 at Kai Iwi. The boundaries of Taranaki in places also travel short distances across country and don’t always line up exactly with the roads but for administrative conveniences theses are taken as administrative boundaries.

Lions Club of Patea Christmas Parade 30 November 2018. We have had another successful Christmas Parade enjoyed by a huge crowd of locals and visitors. This event would not happen without the generous funding from our Patea sponsors, enabling six prizes to be given out to the themed Kiwi Christmas floats, and a spot prize. Plenty of lollies were given out to the children also. We would like to thank Universal Motors, Patea Four Square and Patea Liqour centre, Kakaramea Hotel, Hooper Engineering, Greg Burnand, Hurleys Butchery, Patea Pharmacy, Taranaki Vet Centre. Mobil Patea, Northcott Autos, Murdoch Contracting, STDC Community Board, Patea Tyre Centre and Red Rock Cafe.

Kakaramea Post Office Location? I am trying to find the actual location of where the Post Office in Kakaramea was. The information I have is that it was to the right of the dairy, set back in the paddock, and at some stage was the residence of Frank and Wilhemina Lambert. All I seem to be able to find – on Google – is that the old dairy is number 2210 South Road and the house set back in the paddock is 2208, but that appears to be two properties. Can anyone shed any light on this? Regards, Earle Couchman Email:

Patea Community Board Meeting

Notes from the Patea Community Board meeting on Wednesday 23 January 2019, 4.00 pm, provided by the Board Members.

The first meeting for the year was held at the Patea Museum, Aotea Utanganui. Present were: Patea Community Board members; Olivia, Dianne and Jacq, Robert Northcott (Patea Councillor) Claire Symes (Community Development Manager), Fiona Greenhill ( Community and Infrastructure Manager), Phil Nixon (Deputy Mayor), & several members of the public. Apology from Ruth

Wanganui Aero Club Learn to fly Trial flights from $79 All ages welcome For bookings ph: 06 345 0914


The Open Forum began with: • Jacq reporting that complaints were on facebook about the build-up of sand at the carpark in Mana Bay. After phoning the Council call centre, it was found that Jacq was the first person that had logged a request to get it cleared. Phil Waite is now putting this on the council maintenance plan, and it will be cleared in the next week. The Community Board stress that its more effective to phone requests through to STDC call centre – 0800 111 323 rather than post on facebook. Please feel free to follow up with a message to one of your Community Board members though. • Rob spoke about the complaints of rubbish in the Cool Stores. Unfortunately there is little that can be done about this, as the buildings are privately owned, apart from taking the number plate of anyone seen dumping rubbish here and reporting to Police or STDC. • Olivia updated us on the issue of camper vans parking up in the Top Lookout at the Beach. Although campers this year have been respectful of the area they do block the view for other people. At the moment there is no signage to direct them to another part of the lookout. The front of the lookout is the only flat area for Campervans, so an option is to flatten and asphalt an area in the turn around area away from the sea-view or put up signage and lined parking spots, this would require a change to our freedom camping bylaw though, so it is a work in progress. • Allan Caple from Patea Community Patrol gave us an update of the current situation on the streets of Patea and Waverley. After the meeting Phil Nixon and Rob Northcott had with Constable Kyle Davie, the Police presence in Patea has improved. Their patrolling of Freedom campers this summer has been only positive, with no issues with them. Allan pointed out that things like dumping of rubbish is being done by local people, not freedom campers, and they have reported several people that have dumped rubbish at the old green waste. In the last year Community Patrol have done 789 hours of work, and reported 314 incidents to the Police. Phil congratulated them on their good work, keeping our communities safe and accountable. • Mareta Marsters-Grubner spoke about the progress on the Manchester St playground which enjoyed a lovely write up in the Taranaki Star recently and also an update and overview on Pae Pae in the Park 2019. • Molly Oliver pointed out that there weren’t enough rubbish bins at Waverley Beach this year. The normal skip bin was there for a shorter time over the holidays. Rob pointed out that a skip bin in one place for a long time is problematic with locals dumping their household rubbish there, and that people need to take their rubbish away with them. • Kere Taputoro told us of the successful relaunch of the Waka Ama Club on the Patea River in the last few weeks. The club members have done a lot of tidying up and mowing of grass around their base at York St, but request the Council help with clearing the long grass along the river bank. The Club would also like to help with the continuation of native tree planting the River Walk Trust have instigated, up toward the bridge. And want to see fencing of the river where stock is accessing it, to protect it from run off. Kere offered to take a Council member up River in the Waka to see their concerns, Rob agreed in an instant, and will report back to us soon. • Wes James spoke of his application to the Patea Discretionary Fund for a music and mentoring event with the children of Patea Area School. General Business was • Claire reported that the Waverley Town and Patea Town Clocks are working again. The Council contracts for the Town Centre design planning work are with contractors now, once awarded and designs produced there will be public meetings to present these. The ‘Community Vision Project’ leading up to the Long Term Plan are being discussed now, The CUBE will be at The Patea Pae Pae for locals to write their ideas on for our towns. • Full funding for earthquake strengthening of the Hunter Shaw Building has been received from Lotteries and STDC. Tenders for the work will go out soon. Thanks was given to Claire and Fiona for their tireless work to secure funding and project plans. • The Patea and Waverley Library Summer Children’s Reading Programs have been a great success. • Patea River Walkway, John Hunger has installed a handrail and improvements to slope at the end of York St and laid shell rock on the steep slope. • Tenders for the removal of the Concrete Tower at the end of Bedford St will be closing at the end of February. • Rob updated us that the request he put to the Council regarding derelict homes purchase conditions, that are sold through the Council to recoup rates arears, cannot unfortunately have any stipulations on the sale agreement as Council is not the vendor of the homes, merely an interested party. • The Waka monument will be cleaned before the Patea Pae Pae, but unfortunately it may not be repainted until the concrete repairs are completed, in the next month. The Board expressed its displeasure at this situation as it’s been bought up at many meetings that we required this work to be complete by the 6th February in time for Pae Pae in the Park 2019. Olivia will be following up on progress over the next 2 weeks. Full minutes of this and all Council meetings can be found on the South Taranaki District Council Website, under the heading ‘Council’ then go to ‘Meetings' or view them at Patea or Waverley Library. Your Community Board Members are: Ruth Mackay (Chair) Olivia McQuillan (Deputy) Dianne Lance, & Jacq Dwyer. Robert Northcott (Patea Councillor) The meeting times & venues for this year are: Wednesday 6 March 2019, 4.00pm, Waverley Community Centre

A fresh, new look, Patea LibraryPlus is on track to be re-opened by mid-February says South Taranaki District Council (STDC) libraries and cultural services manager Cath Sheard. “The $300,000 worth of refurbishments, which included reroofing and recladding, have been completed on time and on budget and represent a significant investment in the Patea Community,” says Ms Sheard. While refurbishments have been underway, the LibraryPlus has been operating out of the Patea Old Folks Hall and Ms Sheard says staff are excited to get back into their newly renovated building. South Taranaki Mayor, Ross Dunlop is looking forward to re-opening the LibraryPlus facility. “Patea LibraryPlus is one of seven LibraryPlus centres throughout the district and represents part of the Council’s ongoing commitment to our small towns,” he says. “It’s at the heart of the community and we hope everyone enjoys their LibraryPlus centre’s new look.”

Children register and then promise to read every day for at least 15 minutes or more. They visit the library at least three times during the six-week programme in order to qualify for the party, certificate and medal. Patea and Waverley LibraryPlus had a great Summer Reading Programme this year. There were 98 children registered across Patea and Waverley and 74% of the registered children completed the programme, with 244 report-ins completed. This is huge for our small communities as report-ins allow the children to build a relationship with the library staff and talk about what they had been reading over summer. Over the summer break there were a range of fun activities held that child could attend. As the theme this year was ‘The aMAZEing Read’ there were Lego and Marble mazes, Amazing Races and lots more fun activities the children could participate in. There were also Crafternoons held every Monday which were well attended each week. Both LibraryPlus held fun finale parties to reward the children, and parents, for their hard work. In Waverley the children played fun games including races with Maltesers and straws, while in Patea the children enjoyed a pool party. Our thanks to Community Board members Olivia McQuillan and Jacq Dwyer for their attendance.

We hope you all enjoyed our last article in the Waverley & Patea Press. Last month we presented our 2018 end of year assessment data and reported on our prize giving results and end of year events such as school camps, our production, the Christmas parade and other programmes we had in school. Over January we have all been away on holiday but we look forward to presenting more of the exciting happenings at Whenuakura School next month. We have started our school year with our ‘Welcome to the Whenuakura Way’ learning conversations on Wednesday 30th January. These happen at the start of the year because we are committed to individualising our curriculum. At each appointment we talk about our learning programmes, our calendar for the year, what interests the child, and how we can best meet their learning needs collaboratively. These help us to plan for the year ahead and ensure the Whenuakura School lives our motto of “Growing Personal Excellence”. The school is looking brand new with all exterior of our main building now freshly painted. There has been building and maintenance work throughout the holidays and this continues in term one. It also looks fantastic after our ‘Working Bee’. Thank you to all those who attended. We are extremely lucky to have a school pool and many families made the most of it over summer and we use it a great deal during school as well. This would not be possible without the help of Geoffrey Millar who has maintained it for us. Thank you for all the work you do. We would like to welcome all of our new students and their families to Whenuakura School. We will introduce these students next month. Welcome back again to Maria Ferris who is teaching alongside Bianca Mitchell in our Teina Nest. Maria is a skilled and passionate teacher who we are very pleased to have back at Whenuakura School. Like 2018, this year is going to be full of learning and making the most of every possible opportunity. We look forward to sharing this with you.

Maxwell & Districts Kindergarten Last week were fortunate to have Senior Constable Rob Conder visit us to talk to the children about the role of The New Zealand Police. This was in reponse to an Emergency Service interest and a letter we wrote to invite Constable Rob to visit our Kindergarten. Constable Rob shared with us how he helps people when he is called to a job. We learnt that the Police use a lot of talking and listening skills in their problem solving to help provide safe environments for communities. This supports how we work through problems at Kindergarten too. We also talked about the equipment Police Officers use and wear, and how Police dogs are used to aid them in finding people with their sense of smell, before we reiterated our rules around road safety and how to keep ourselves safe. We were lucky to try the police vest and hats on. The children were able to sit in the Police car and some even got to talk on the radio. We covered our ears as we listened to the siren. Thanks to Senior Constable Rob for visiting us at Maxwell. We now have more knowledge and understanding about Police and their role in keeping the community safe.
