In response to the recent North Canterbury earthquakes, local Windwhistle resident Alida Bell set about organising aid in the form of food parcels and basic goods, to be gathered and sent to those in need. “It all began with the feeling of desperation that food and basics needed to be got to those affected by the quake,” Alida said. “Over a period of four days, 35 families provided two loaded deliveries of food and essentials,” she commented. S a m R i c h ar d s , a l s o a Windwhistle resident, took the first load to Waiau by car on Thursday 17th, following Monday’s November 14th, magnitude 7.8 quake. Sam returned to the area again on Saturday, November 19th, along with help from another local, John Ballagh. This time they flew a second load into Clarence Valley. “We were totally overwhelmed by the Windwhistle and

surrounds, community response and effort,” Alida added. “We are so fortunate, people up here are gold! They all came out of the woodwork, no matter their circumstances, and got stuck in. Families stretching from Glenthorne Station, Lake Coleridge, Rakaia Gorge, Windwhistle and Hororata, through to West Melton all contributed, while not forgetting Farmlands in Darfield, who supported the cause as well. “Windwhistle school pupils created cards with lovely messages, which were delivered with the parcels on the plane,” Alida ended. Another Windwhistle resident, Jo Walker also wanted to reach out to those affected by the North Canterbury Earthquakes. Realising that many families would not have enough blankets and bedding to keep them warm, Jo consulted social media to help out.

She contacted the NZ Mounted Rifles Trust who had set up a Facebook page to co-ordinate getting help and supplies to those areas worst hit. Jo and a group of parents from Windwhistle School provided food items, bedding and children’s activities. A Rangiora supermarket provided much needed cleaning and personal items before Jo met with a NZ Mounted Rifles representative in the town for handover. On Friday midday, November 18th the goods collected were on their way to Waiau, with some items delivered to families that very afternoon.

Guests of Honour Mike and Kay Richards were joined by family and friends, along with Fire Service officials, Township and Council members, as well as fellow firefighters, both past and current, for the awarding of Mike’s gold star, recognising twenty five years Fire Brigade service. Chief Fire Officer, Alan Kittelty of the Darfield Fire Brigade in his capacity as UFBA (United Fire Brigade’s Association) President delivered the following speech which summed up Mike’s commitment and service to the Brigade: “I am privileged to be able to present a Gold Star to both a friend and a member of my Brigade, and I am sure you will agree no one is no more deserving than Mike. I extend to you Mike, on behalf of the Minister of Internal Affairs, the Hon Peter Dunne Dunne, the warmest congratulations and best wishes on attaining your Gold Star for twenty five years’ service as a fire fighter. Today we celebrate twenty five years of service by a very important member of the Darfield VFB. I’m sure you will all agree that this is an amazing length of time to be solidly and regularly contributing to one organisation. The Gold Star being presented today is the 7,628th presented in New Zealand since the United Fire Brigades Association presented the first one back in 1878. This may sound a rather large number, but it is a milestone

Left Darfield Fire Fighter Mike Richards receives his 25 Year Gold Star Award from Alan Kittelty UFBA President and Darfield Brigade Chief Fire Officer. Photo: Ken Muscroft-Taylor aimed for by many fire fighters and achieved by relatively few. 96% of fire fighters leave the service before they qualify for a Gold Star so this is quite a unique honour. Therefore today Mike joins a very select group of only 4% of New Zealand’s fire fighters to attain their Gold Stars to recognise twenty-five years dedicated service. Since 1973 when E.L. Wood was presented the first Gold Star at Darfield there have been a further eighteen presented. Therefore Mike, you are the twentieth member of the Darfield VFB to be awarded a twenty five-year Gold Star. Your average attendance at musters over the 25 year period is 78.75%, with a total of 1076 musters attended out of a possible 1460. This is an outstanding achievement over a long period of time and I commend you for your dedication and commitment. The ’Gold Star’ has eight points; each point represents a letter

forming the Latin word ‘Servimus’, meaning to serve. It is said that a Fire fighter who becomes a Gold Star member possesses these eight qualities: Service, Efficiency, Resourcefulness, Valour, Integrity, Mobility, Unity and Strength. I’m sure you agree that all of these qualities apply to Mike. I have known Mike for more than twenty years and the commitment he has given to the Brigade, and the community, whilst also running his own business and raising a family is unquestionable. Mike, you are someone who has done all of this and I have rarely heard you complain - other than when there is no rum in the bar! You turn up, do your job and get on to the next task. You are a popular member of our Brigade and have both strong leadership and operational qualities and it now gives me great pleasure to ask you to come forward so I can present you with your Gold Star to recognise your twenty five years service.”

Colleen and Maureen Marsh and Julie Sheehan from The Sewing Room in Darfield. the perfect business to utilise their skills. The Marsh’s were originally from Coalgate and their parents had lived in the area all their lives; along with their mother Maureen and Colleen made the move to Darfield ten years ago. “It’s wonderful being closer to the Shop now,” Maureen said, “and while we’re close enough to walk to work, we’re usually carrying so many things - it’s just not practical,” the pair laughed. When Colleen and Maureen initially went into business, the fabric they sourced and purchased was purely to sew items for sale in the shop nowadays fabrics make up 50% of sales and they have over 2,000 different ones in stock! Giftware was just a small sideline in the early days of The Sewing Room. Some crystals, baskets and maybe a bit of Temuka pottery - but not any more; the store is an eclectic mix of gifts and lots of surprising finds. Signs to bring a smile, gifts to say get well or thankyou. Beautiful cups and mugs, toys and baby clothing, along with the most divine array

of fabrics imaginable. Christmas ornaments and decorations adorn the shelves and often they have just the piece, not able to be found elsewhere. Maureen and Colleen still make and sew bespoke craft or homeware items in the workroom at their new shop, which is always a hive of activity. Local dressmaker Julie Sheehan has assisted the pair for many years and Cathy and Janine help part time on a regular basis. Check out the Sewing Room’s new Facebook page - the administrator will respond to online enquires wherever possible. “Our business has changed dramatically over the twenty years,” both Colleen and Maureen said, “but one thing that hasn’t changed is just how continually busy we are and how the enterprise just keeps getting more so.” The Sewing Room has a justifiable and deserved reputation for top quality work and now in its new store an equal one for the selection and variety of goods available for purchase - call in, they won’t disappoint!

W Following their extremely successful historical film showings the Sheffield team that organised them have now set their sights on making Christmas easy, fun and enjoyable for those who have the job of shopping for the big day. To be held on Friday, December 9th from 6pm in the Sheffield Community Hall, organisers have been inundated with stallholders wishing to join them. There are however, still a few places left; see the advertisement in this issue for contact details. Previously the Hall had hosted a very successful Spring shopping event, but after much discussion it was decided to take some of the hard work out of the festive season and hold a Christmas evening instead. It’s an opportunity to not only buy gifts, fill the Christmas stocking or decorate the tree,

The Centre, known as West Melton Village, comprises approximately 2600m 2 of leasable space made up of thirteen tenancies. Businesses to have opened in the Centre so far include a supermarket, a beauty salon and a hairdresser. Amy commented that she had already visited the supermarket in the West Melton Village

herself as a customer and was looking forward to using the services of other businesses in the Centre in the future. “As well as offering convenient local services to the community, the Centre will also provide employment opportunities for a significant number of local people,” Amy finished.

The Malvern Kapa Haka group have been meeting every Friday morning at Kirwee Model School since the group’s inception in Term 1, 2015 and have just presented their talents to schools throughout Malvern. The group is made up of children from Kirwee, Greendale, Hororata, Sheffield and Springfield and this term they were also joined by Glentunnel School. The group began its tour at Kirwee, moved to Hororata and finished at Sheffield, with Matua Anton, Anton their talented instructor. “A huge thank you to parents and schools who supported us on this day,” said a spokesperson for the Group. “We would especially like to make mention of local company Torlesse Travel who sponsored the bus for our students to travel around the schools.” The Principals of Malvern have made a commitment toward raising the profile of Tikanga (customs) and Te Reo Māori (language) here in the Malvern Community. They provide the means for this to happen, but it is the children who are the real stars with the aspiration to achieve this goal. Next year the Group hopes to attract even more children to experience this wonderful means of expressing themselves as New Zealanders.

The Malvern Kapa Haka Group have been performing at schools across Malvern on Friday, November 25th - their practised performance was enjoyed by all. Top: at Kirwee Primary School. Middle: Hororata Primary School, and Bottom: Sheffield Primary School.

Two years ago Rusty and Wendy Henderson of Darfield Smash 24hr Towing Ltd began a new enterprise as an add-on to their already existing business. The couple began Selwyn Car Rentals with a fleet of Toyota Corollas. The business has gone from strength to strength and has now just upgraded its

vehicles. Because their previous Toyotas had been so reliable, Wendy and Rusty have sourced replacement late model Toyota Corolla Hatches, all in easily recognisable red, and arriving into Malvern from as far afield as Invercargill and Auckland. “We’ve found these cars to be extremely comfortable and very,

Whether it’s the need to cover a vehicle while it’s off the road for repair, or maybe it’s visiting friends and relatives who would appreciate the convenience of going where they want, when they want, it’s a win, win all round. Selwyn Car Rentals can even deliver the vehicle being hired to the client’s home or the site of their vehicle breakdown now that’s service that is unlikely to be found elsewhere.

Nine year old Charlie Blackburn competing in the long distance at the Malvern Athletics.

On Monday, November 21st the Malvern Primary and Intermediate Schools Athletic Championships were held at Darfield High School. This was a twilight meeting starting at 3.45pm enabling family and friends to come down and cheer the athletes on. This was a successful event with many achieving record results. Those that achieved first place in this year’s Malvern Athletics, are Year 5 and above or at least nine years of age, will go on to compete in the Canterbury Schools Athletic Championships, to be held on Wednesday, December 7th at Ashburton Domain. Visit for full results.

For our November mee ng we decided to use our ini a ve and hold a floral art evening. There was so much foliage and flowers, it looked as if we had enough material to decorate the whole of the Recrea on Centre. We also had enough enthusiasm to create some stunning displays of posy bowls, wreaths and arrangements for all occasions. Many of our novices came up with some wonderful displays, some of them being first- mers and really achieving great results. During November we also visited SuzeSe Gardens, the home and garden of Suzanne and Ted Rollinson at Rakaia. We have visited some amazing gardens but this par cular one was wonderful, full of colour with the Spring shrubs and flowers all in bloom. Suzanne took us through the garden telling us of the history of the property and then Val, her gardener, took over. A deligh_ul girl whose love of the garden was evident in the way she spoke. The day turned out extremely hot and aNer lunch in the garden, we lounged around cha ng and enjoying the an cs of Harley, the property cat, who had accompanied us all day. Cats steal the show at many proper es we visit, but Harley was in a class all of his own! We are looking forward to our Christmas Do next month and then a break over the Summer. Enjoy these wonderful days in the garden. Canterbury gardens are truly Spring gardens, with all the spectacular colours and blooms on display. Happy days and don't forget, if you are stuck for a Christmas giN idea, think the garden! Hint, hint to the hubbies!

November 18th, the students changed plans saw them head to Camp Omaka (Scout Camp), near the airport, for their final William Pike Challenge Activity. Omaka was organised very quickly as the pupils were due to leave on Tuesday, November 15th, for Mistletoe Bay in the Marlborough Sounds. However the Kaikoura earthquake meant travel to Picton wasn’t possible and so an alternative camp was found. The pupils all had to tent and on their first day participated in the challenging high ropes course situated at the Groynes. They walked an hour and a half from Omaka to get there! On day two it was sailing on Lake Roto Kohatu, which is situated right next door to Omaka Camp. On the Thursday, and in the pouring rain, the students were given a challenge to build a bridge across the stream with tubes, a plank and ropes. Camp down time was spent playing games, rubber tubing, exploring and feeding eels. “They all had a blast and it was a great lesson on how life challenges you!,” said a School spokesperson.
