CROMWELL COLLEGE PRESENTS HAIRSPRAY Yes, the moment is almost here. Every two years Cromwell College puts on a musical. Hairspray is an American musical set in the 1960s. Tracy Turnblad’s dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV dance programme based on the real-life Buddy Deane Show. The cast lead us through all the typical teenage parent issues and the segregation of America at this time. The audience will be treated to lots of wonderful music, cringe costumes big hair, and big personalities. A cast of 50 students on stage with another 20 students in support have been working since the start of the school year to bring this show to our community. Show times are 7-30pm Wednesday 23rd, Thursday 24th, Friday 25th May. Tickets can be purchased from the College office - $10 adults, $5 students. Caitriona MacTaggart (Trudy), Sophie Nelson (Penny), Bob Wardill (Seaweed), and Eden Sharp (Tracy), Liam Flynn (Link).

First Table has come to Cromwell & Central Otago The good people of Cromwell will be pleased to know that the popular Queenstown based Restaurant Discovery Service “First Table” launched in Central Otago on Tuesday 15 May. The online service has grown exponentially in less than four years with 700 restaurants and 180,000 registered diners in New Zealand, Australia and the UK on board. First Table offers exclusive half-priced meals to diners booking early evening seating through their website. Users pay just $10 to make an early booking at a partner restaurant for half price off the total food bill. There’s only one table available each night, and its first in, best fed. “Living in Queenstown we have been keeping an eye on the dining scene in Central Otago for

quite some time” says South Island Territory manager Cameron Steele. “The increased expectations of quality, and the fulfillment of these expectations by local restaurants means we are now expanding close to home to help our Central Otago neighbours explore these wonderful venues. We expect our extensive network of 20,000 registered diners in Queenstown and Wanaka to be inspired to jump in their cars and explore them too.” “That’s why we’re expanding First Table all over the world — to help foodies discover everything their region has to offer.” The company’s founder Mat Weir says he wanted to create a system which not only helped restaurants get evenings off to a good start, but also helped patrons discover and try new restaurants; “Locals who want to expand their palates and experience something new

love using First Table, as do restaurateurs keen to kick start their nighttime services by filling those early evening empty seats.” From launch, Central Otago has a stellar line up of restaurants who’ve joined the First Table family, including : • • • • • • • • •

Monsoon in Cromwell Five Stags in Cromwell Moorings Restaurant in Pisa Moorings Olivers in Clyde Paulina’s in Clyde Monteiths in Alexandra Ashoka indian in Alexandra Chatto Creek in Omakau Blacks Hotel In Ophir

“Get out and enjoy the incredible options you have right here in your backyard.”

Anyone who signs up using the code below will be given a $5 credit off their first booking.

ICEINLINE CELEBRATES 25 YEARS Weather permitting, Iceinline will open for the 2018 season on Friday 18th May. You may not be aware, but this year is the 25th year of operation on our existing site, and we also installed a new refrigeration plant over the summer months which, as well as keeping our ice under control, will serve as a heat transfer system with the Molyneux Aquatic Centre as part of a joint operation with the CODC. To celebrate both these events, we wanted to do something for the skating public. While our normal skating sessions will be held over the weekend, it has been decided to help the clubs promote their activities on Saturday 19th. Between 11am and 12 noon, there will be free entry and skate hire for those youngsters wishing to have a go at ice hockey; between 4.30 and 5.30 there will be free entry and skate hire for those wishing to try figure skating and between 7 and 8 pm, the same applies for those wishing to try curling. This is for those people not already members of those clubs and is seen as a way to perhaps boost their membership. All other charges will apply outside these times.

How to prepare your body for winter... There are several important things you can do to help your body prepare for the coughs and colds that we see most often in winter time. The important thing to remember is that if your body is primed and healthy, it will deal with these bug invasions the way that nature intended. Primed and healthy can be described as: your sleep bank is full, your body cells are fed with nutrient rich foods, and your good bacteria outnumber your bad bacteria. Your body has a strong system of fighting unwanted pathogens which appear in the mouth and throat when you inhale them in, but all these ingredients need to be in place for the system to be efficient. Vitamin D supplements. Also known as the “happy hormone”, vitamin D is absent in the winter due to the lack of exposure to enough sunshine. There are reports that SAD (seasonal affective disorder) could be the result of lower circulating Vitamin D levels in our bodies, and perhaps why we succumb to various infections more in the winter than in the summer. Blis K12 throat lozenges. To coat the throat and mouth with probiotics to “search-and-destroy” any bad bugs that you breathe in. Prevention is better than cure. For kids... We recommend Thompsons Junior Immunofort. A well-recognised brand, it targets the specific needs of children aged 2 – 12. Its comprehensive immune boosting formula includes 16 vitamins and 8 minerals as well as 15 “superfood” concentrates like spirulina, carrot and broccoli. Whatever your needs, we can find a solution to help you through this winter with the with the minimum of sniffles. Come to Cromwell Pharmacy for healthy advice and nutritional support. For good healthy advice and nutritional support see the team of friendly health professionals at Cromwell Pharmacy. We’re here to help. OPEN: Monday-Friday 8.30am - 6pm and Saturday 9.30am - 1.00pm

If in doubt, individuals are advised to discuss their health conditions with their doctor.

Clinic Hours: Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm, with late night appointments on Monday & Thursday until 8pm.

This is the third painting event that Joanne has run in Cromwell. Previous participant comment: "What a great night. I haven’t picked up a paint brush for 30yrs+ and would say I can’t paint.

The difference between Tenants in Common and Joint Tenancy If you are considering purchasing a property, and you are purchasing with another person or persons, have you given consideration to the type of ownership that may be right for you?

Joint Tenancy “Joint tenancy” is where you and another person(s) own the property jointly. For instance, the title would record that John Smith and Bob Cat are the owners jointly, (instead of defining each share of the individuals). This is often used by married couples. Trustees of a Trust will also own the property as joint tenants. Each owner requires the consent of the other owners to transfer or mortgage the property. If one of the owners dies their share in the property passes to the remaining owners by survivorship. AWS Legal is proud to be supporting the Pioneer Energy Tri Nations Women’s International Hockey Series, hosted in Cromwell, 19 to 27 May 2018.

Registered Applicator with Pacific Wall Coverings


Tenants in Common You can own the property jointly in unequal or equal shares. This ownership is known as “tenants in common”. For instance, John Smith and Bob Cat may have property where John put in more money than Bob, say $20,000 to $10,000. The title could show John had undivided 2/3 shares and Bob Cat an undivided 1/3 share. Tenants in common ownership is often used by a couple in a de facto relationship, between family members or business partners. Each owner can transfer or mortgage their share of the property. If they die their share of the property will be transferred pursuant to the provisions of their will.

The College News Year 13 had a very successful Otago University Tertiary Open Day in Dunedin on Monday considering possible future tertiary opportunities. Fifteen students, supported by Ms Kane and Ms Christensen, attended the Model European Union last weekend in Christchurch and had a memorable time debating current issues facing Europe with students from all over the South Island. Ms Kane was very proud of their depth of interest and enthusiasm as well as the character and maturity displayed by these students – tino pai rangatahi mā. Currently sixteen students are in Wellington on a senior history trip with Mr Booth and Ms Smith visiting Te Papa, the National War Memorial and the National Army Museum in Waiouru.

The ‘Pride Project’ is a Year 13 initiative to raise pride in our school amongst all students. The prefects presented a video and spoke on this theme at this week’s assembly outlining some of the many things Gold Duke of Edinburgh Hillary tramping through to Daley's we can be proud of as a school, Hut. such as, our school haka and waiata, our special environment and facilities, camps, tramps, skiing and other outdoor opportunities, school productions as well as past and present cultural, sporting and academic achievers. Year 13 leadership groups have various activities planned to enhance school pride and have conducted a baseline ‘pride’ survey in order Hayley Carson and Ella Hendry - New Zealand Music Month to measure the impact they have Concert. made.

Our students love their winter sport and I have already enjoyed seeing our students’ tenacity and skill in games of rugby and hockey. The senior girls were thrilled to train with three of the Black Ferns Rugby Team last week and admire the Womens Rugby World Cup. At last week’s assembly over 70% of our students stood when I acknowledged those who were committed to a current sporting activity. This reflects students’ passion and also the invaluable and generous community support they receive from parents, clubs, coaches and managers – thank you. Students benefit in terms of their health and wellbeing but also through the values and learning around team work, self discipline, the power of purposeful practice, determination, sportsmanship and being gracious, whether you win or lose. It is less than a week until the first performances of this year’s production ‘Hairspray’ and tickets are now on sale at the school office. It is shaping to be a fabulous show and a great night’s entertainment for our community. I wish the cast and crew all the best for their final practices and dress rehearsals. Karawhuia mai – bring it on

Congratulations to those Year 9 students who received diligence awards at yesterday’s celebration assembly which was attended by a number of parents. The focus was on rewarding effort measured through our fortnightly checks. I stressed to students that the greatest contributor to your future success is not your talent or ability but your determination, selfdiscipline and positive work ethic – effort matters and is the pathway to personal excellence, a core value in our Kawa. This is the second of Rugby v's South Otago last Saturday - a close fought these assemblies for our junior school and they are the result of feedback rawe! from our community last year.

P CROMWELL RUGBY CLUB BWC Cromwell travelled to Wanaka to play Upper Clutha for The John Scott Memorial Trophy and suffered a 38-12 loss. This was a game where Upper Clutha played very well, and put BWC Cromwell under pressure with hard running mixed with good kicking for territory and showed some skill when they had the ball. Upper Clutha ran in 3 converted tries in the first half to take a 21-0 lead at half time. BWC Cromwell did finish the half on attack but could not score any points. The second half started promising for BWC Cromwell and scored a great team try to Devon Mathieson, which was not converted and looked like we were going to stage another second half comeback, but Upper Clutha were playing to well for this and they scored another 3 tries to make the game safe. BWC Cromwell did manage to score another good try to Kane Dodds, which he converted to make the final score 38-12. Players to stand out were Hayden Todd, Scott Wills, Ethan Molloy and Player Of The Day went to prop Matt Breiley who had a great game on attack and defence. BWC Cromwell's next game is against Clyde Earnscleugh at Andersons Park Cromwell where The White Horse Cup is up for grabs again, and Clyde will be a tough opposition as they have been improving each week, and have some Cromwell players helping them out this year, so should be a great game, and hope to see you there. Also to all our fantastic Sponsors, our Sponsors Day will be held on Saturday 26th May in Cromwell, where we will be playing Alexandra, and invite you all along, where there will be food and refreshments provided to show our appreciation for your support, so would be great to see you there.

The Cromwell Scout Group would like to thank the following people and organisations for sponsoring our cherry firewood fundraiser last month Simon Webb - Webbs Fruit Stall, Russell Hall - Nevis Group, Otago Metals Central, Glyn Whittaker and our hard-working Scout Group volunteers Thanks for your awesome support! All proceeds go towards the Building Upgrade for our Scout Hall (which is desperately needed). Please contact if you would like to order a trailer-load for $250. A DESERVED REWARD? I strongly believe that it would be a perfect time to reward Mike Paardekooper of Cromwell in a tangible way, who as many of you will know owns three (3) Paper Plus shops in our District, not for this but for all his huge contribution to the community of Cromwell & Central Otago over a long time. In particular now for his major involvement of over more than 20 years with Hockey Management and promotion here so it seems to me that it would be particularly appropriate right now for the new Hockey Pavilion in Cromwell to be named the PAARDEKOOPER PAVILION. I urge those involved in the Management of Hockey here to recognize his amazing life time achievements. Long time Supporter Disability car parks. Who are they for? As a person with limited mobility, as long as I display my permit I can now get a little extra leeway at metered parks in the cities, and the right to use the various disabled parks dotted around the area in easy access locations. In Cromwell some of the more popular sites would include the car parks at both supermarkets, various places around the mall, and my pet nemesis, the 2 mobility parks shared by the gym, the pool, and the hockey turf. For obvious reasons, many with mobility issues require easy access to a pool or gym or both. As this can be a busy car park at various times of the day, the 2 mobility spots can be a Godsend, unless these spaces have been usurped by an unpermitted vehicle or vehicles. The law is clear. No displayed permit, No park, No exceptions, although a case could be made if you just forgot to display your permit and you decided to fight the $150 fine. Please don’t make life more difficult for legitimate disabled users. Parking in Cromwell tends to be more about courtesy and conscience. If you are not disabled, these parks are not for you. If you are disabled but don’t have a valid permit, then get one, and display it! You can’t use someone else’s permit, and the permit holder must be the one requiring easier access and not just staying in the vehicle for the ride while providing someone else with the benefits. And finally kudos to the providers of mobility spaces both private and public. The ratio of disabled to able body parking seems good and works well when not abused. An improvement in marking and signage may help a little and CCS research shows that abuse of mobility spaces is reduced by as much as 13% when they are painted blue with a white mobility symbol rather than just the standard yellow lines and symbol. That’s my rant for today. As I get older, I feel I am catching my parent’s lack of patience for ignorance. Dickey Legg. (Abridged. Ed)

Tourism Levy is Great News for Recreation The New Zealand Recreation Association (NZRA) has welcomed confirmation that the government will introduce a tourist levy. NZRA Chief Executive Andrew Leslie highlighted the extent to which the tourism boom had placed pressure on recreational infrastructure and access. “It has been great to see an increase in visitors to New Zealand, in many ways, the tourism boom has enhanced recreation in New Zealand, but there have been associated costs and pressure points that need to be addressed,” he explained. “At the national level, the Department

of Conservation has, almost by default, borne the burden. Funding for DoC has not been adequate to cope with the pressures placed upon their carparking, wastewater and recreational infrastructure. This has forced the department to make some very tough decisions between catering for international visitors and their core roles of conservation and fostering recreation,” he said. “Our hope is that when funding for infrastructure is allocated, it is kept in mind that a huge proportion of international visitors come to connect with our natural places on land managed by the Department of Conservation,” he stated.

“On a local level, the most popular areas for international tourists have the least number of ratepayers. That places an extraordinary burden on the local councils in those areas, who are struggling to maintain their walking trails and cycleways – let alone build more,” he said. “Expenditure on recreational infrastructure such as walking trails and cycleways, is not just a coping mechanism for the tourism boom. It also enhances the lives of New Zealanders by way of the numerous social, economic and health benefits of outdoor recreation,” he concluded.
