Local Motocross rider Tyler Wiremu has recently returned from Manawatu, after competing in the 2019 Junior Motocross Nationals, held from April 26th 28th. “It was an intense three days of racing for Tyler,” commented Tyler’s mum, Lisa Wintour. Wintour The event consisted of seven races in total over the three days. Despite coming first in the first race, Tyler had tough, but exciting, challenges competing with forty one of the best of the best in the 85cc, 12-13 year old class. This culminated in a fantastic second overall finish. Tyler had a near accident in the third race which resulted in his knee twisting, however medics onsite checked him out and gave him the all-clear to keep racing. Sore, but determined to keep going, Tyler finished all his races, something not all the top,

he will be racing in the Hattah Desert Race in Australia in two months time. “Last year he came third in this event which is a fantastic result as training for this race is impossible, due to New Zealand

having no deserts. He is also racing in the Australian supercross later in the year,” Lisa concluded.

Come along to celebrate the launch of...

Frews Journey Towards a Century ‘The story of the Frew family’s involvement in the transport and contracting industries, and the changes in these industries over the last 100 years.’

Saturday 15th June 2019 10:30am, at Frews Transport Darfield Yard Please register by email to or phone Frews Darfield or Oxford depots, by Monday 10th June 2019. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase for $59.50 by cash or EFTPOS (Indoor venue with disabled access) ALL WELCOME TO ATTEND THIS SPECIAL OCCASION!

Evan Frew taking the first copy of the Frew’s history book off the printing press on Friday, May 3rd. Residents in the Malvern News area are very familiar with the iconic Frew’s brown trucks and the business hub at the entrance to Darfield. The brown trucks have been a feature for many years. In 2021 Frew’s transport and contracting businesses will be celebrating 100 years of operation. In anticipation of this occasion an ‘open day’ will be held at the Darfield yard on June, 15th this year when a 270 page, wellresearched, and generouslyillustrated ‘coffee table’ book, ‘Frew’s Journey’, written by one of the founder’s grandsons, Evan Frew, Frew will be launched. Evan has been working on the book for four years to ensure it would be ready in plenty of time for the centennial. Frew’s Journey is the story of four generations of the Frew family leading the business through many changes and challenges. Three great grandsons lead the businesses today. It was in 1921, in the busy village of Greendale, that Edgar Frew bought into the transport business that became McCrostie and Frew. Edgar had already been driving the traction engine - the steam ‘hauler’ - that was the centre of this new business. There were no trucks in those days - it would be nearly a decade before the first truck was purchased. Following World War II, the business, with some trepidation, moved its base of operations to Darfield. It was located first, for a short time, on the eastern corner of Bray Street and South Terrace, before moving to the eastern corner of Thornton and Cardale Streets. In 1967 it moved to the present site on Mathias Street. The purchase of Oxford Transport Services Ltd in 1971 established Frews on the north

side of the Waimakariri with Oxford, Rangiora and Amberley each having depots. In Christchurch the first demolition (The Christchurch Gas Company) was in 1972 and the purchase of the significant transport business of A E Nevell in 1981 provided a physical base in the City, as well as extending transport operations there. A E Nevell had its own long history, originally delivering meat to City butchers using special dust-proof wagons, pulled by horses. Evan realised the importance of recording the history of the business for the benefit of both present and future generations of the family and many others who would be interested. He also recognised that members of his generation were the last who could write the story with a personal understanding. Evan had joined the business in 1960 and was involved with his father, John Frew, Frew as a school boy prior to that. He eventually came to the realisation that he needed to ‘volunteer’ for the writing task. John Frew, provided invaluable information for the first forty years of the company’s story. Fortunately, Evan’s wife, Maureen, Maureen had encouraged her father-in-law to write about his memories and, when John’s eyesight failed, he recorded further recollections on a tape recorder. Frew’s Journey tells a fascinating story - a journey stretching from the steam driven transport of 100 years ago to the huge, sophisticated, present day truck and trailer rigs of more than fifty tonnes. Frew’s Journey will be launched at a public function and open day at Frew’s, Darfield.

Registration is necessary and details can be found in the accompanying advertisement.

Over the school holidays Tara Marshall Dance World’s (TMDW) Performance Dancers were kept busy competing in competitions in Christchurch. They took to the stage in the JT Dancers competition held at Riccarton High School and the C.T.D.T.A (Christchurch Tap Dance Teachers Association) competition held at Villa Maria. While all students did the School proud a special mention goes to TMDW’s three Performance Boys; Eddie Adams, Adams Liam Morris and Barnaby Maude. Maude The boys took out first place with their Hip Hop trio at both competitions! At the JT Dancers’ event the boys were in a tough class competing in an any-age solo

duo or trio. The Boys’ trio were up against eleven other incredible dances, of a mixed variety. The Boys took out first place with 87 points. The judges loved their costume, strong physicality and well suited choreography. In this same competition both Barnaby and Eddie competed in Hip Hop Solos where Barnaby placed third and Eddie placed fourth. At the second competition C.T.D.T.A the boys took out first place again with a score of 85.5. The judges loved their style, energy and tricks! Barnaby and Eddie are in their seventh year at TM Dance World and Liam is in his eighth year. They are involved in the Senior Hip Hop Highlights programme which sees them train in the TMDW studio in Hip Hop and Acrobatics weekly. The boys are a part of the School’s Senior Hip Hop Performance Team and they sit Hip Hop examinations annually. This year Barnaby and Eddie are training to sit Level 6 while Liam is training to sit Level 8! The Boys’ trio, choreographed by studio Director Tara McKeown, McKeown has seen them win numerous awards. In 2018 they

placed first in several competitions, as well as winning the Darfield High School and Ellesmere College combined Talent Quest. Tara is looking forward to having the boys dance in the Showcase National Dance Championships held in Christchurch in January 2020 - a nice way to finish off another successful competition season. I love seeing these three guys dance - they all have their own individual style but they work amazingly together. We always work to create a high-energy, strong, fun, routine for their audience! Who said Boys couldn't dance?!

Primary Focus ran its annual event with Hororata Primary School on May, 10th 2019. Primary Focus is a group of Future Leaders from Lincoln University who run these events to promote all-round wellbeing within rural communities. They provide an opportunity for farming families to participate in activities which involve the whole family. This is to establish habits which will make each family unit stronger and help to realise that you don’t always have to go out the farm gate to take time off. It’s all about appreciating the simple things in life. The farmland around Hororata School is predominately corporate owned dairy farms. This has a large impact on the School with families constantly arriving and leaving mid-year following the dairy calendar. Hororata’s principal, Marty Gameson loved our idea of bringing the community together for an action-packed day. Our day had two important aspects to it; the events that ran at home, and those that ran on the actual day. Students and parents working together were invited to enter three competitions whose processes were judged by photo on the day; Dads’ baking, Mums’ sculpture and family photo. The entries were incredible and the feed back was positive. One parent commented that it was the first cake her husband and child had made together and they absolutely had a ball. This feedback sums up the whole purpose of entering the competitions; taking time out and spending it with family. There were five mechanisms used to structure the events during the day: ‘Be Active’, ‘Take Notice’, ‘Keep Learning’, ‘Give’ and ‘Connect’. All activities were based around these. Organisers appreciated the support and assistance of their amazing sponsors. Marty summarised up our event by saying at the end of the day; “Primary Focus is all about our community. It brings together the whole community, we had grandparents in wheelchairs through to very little children who aren’t even at School yet. It is not about the School only, it’s about the wider community and it is an event we would love to

see continue every year.” “The Year 4-6 children also ran several 50 cent enterprise stalls which took place over lunch time and these were a

resounding success,” commented a spokesperson for Hororata School.

A fantastic night of entertainment was had by all at the Oxford Club on Saturday, May 4th for the Cher and Tina Turner with Austin Powers Tribute Show. An enthusiastic crowd danced the night away to Cher and Tina's rocking tunes until the mid-night hour at the Club. ‘Stars In Your Eyes’ finalists Emmeline Pitcher as Cher and Cindy Filo as Tina Turner sang all the known and loved hits and at times sounded uncannily like the original artists. Interacting and getting amongst the crowd, standing and singing on table tops, they did it all, and to a packed dance floor. Gary Brown as Austin Powers showed once again why he is considered one of New Zealand’s top comedians and dancers. Austin's specialty of non-stop humour, boundless energy, coupled with some

amazing synchronised dance moves entranced the large crowd. To top it off ‘Austin’ is also a great singer giving his unique interpretations to everpopular crowd-pleasing songs.

McHugh’s Forest Park has come a long way in the five years since the initial community sessions, held at Darfield High School. Les Hurford has done a wonderful job, along with other volunteers. The main track has been metalled and is now very well-used. The mountain bike tracks have been carefully developed by volunteers and high school students, and the winding tracks provide a variety of w a l ki n g an d b i k i ng environments to locals and the many who travel to use McHugh’s Forest Park. The Selwyn District Council wants the community to help it

prioritise future work at McHugh’s and Mayor Sam Broughton, along with local councillors Bob Mugford and John Morten will be at the Forest this weekend with Council staff to hear what the community thinks about the Park. Mayor Sam commented that the Council has done some good work at the Forest, however future work now needs to be prioritised, based on the community’s feedback. “We’ve created a great place for people to walk, ride a bike and enjoy the outdoors. We have some funding to go towards

“Another top night’s entertainment at the Oxford Club - the home of live entertainment,” reported Kyle Scott, Scott for the Oxford Club.

more infrastructure like picnic benches within the Forest, or even an off-leash dog exercise area,” he added. “A New Zealand Falcon was spotted in the Park last week; bird life is an important aspect of the Park experience and we are keen to hear if there are things that could enhance this further. All ideas are welcome and there will be tea and coffee available also,” Sam concluded.

The Year 3-4 class at Glentunnel School have been looking at the effects of single use plastics on our environment. After watching a video and seeing animals dying the students decided they could make a difference. Our first project was to make beeswax food wraps to replace plastic wrap in lunchboxes. At the moment 90% of the class has zero plastic in their lunchboxes. Our entrepreneurial students wanted to do more and decided that they could sell these. As a class we decided we could have a stall at the Hororata Night Glow. We are calling it “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and REFUSE plastic.” There are easy things we can all do to reduce the amount of plastic waste in our environment. We all need to re-think what we buy. Using bars of soap rather than plastic bottles filled with liquid soap, using bamboo toothbrushes, cotton buds and clothes pegs, and buying food in glass bottles and tins rather than plastic. Our stall is not just about raising money for the School, it is about educating people. A lady from Eco-educate came in and taught us about recycling and

Page 7

made us aware of how much waste goes to landfill. So much of this waste can be recycled, reused or composted. She showed us how to reuse items like soft toys and t-shirts to make other things. She also taught us about the power of worm farms. We want to pass on this knowledge. Another initiative at Glentunnel School is Zero Waste Thursdays. The Year 3-4 class is running a competition to try to reduce the amount of plastic waste in lunchboxes across the School. Each Thursday every child’s lunchbox is checked. The winning class, the class with the least amount of plastic, receives some easy homemade snacks made by the class, (recipes are also published in the newsletter). These are to encourage parents to make lunchbox snacks rather than buying expensive individually wrapped muesli bars and biscuits. Before the competition started, every child was given a reusable sandwich bag made by the students (and some parents) and information about how to have a zero waste lunch box. It is inspiring to see the next

generation being so aware and pro-active. I have had students talking to managers in restaurants requesting they get rid of plastic straws. The following week when they returned, the restaurant was using paper straws. As a society we can change our thinking and start refusing to buy items with excessive plastic packaging and hopefully people can be more aware about how and what to recycle. Did you know that anything that is not clean in the recycling bin goes to landfill? Every household should be composting food and green waste. People need to be thinking about buying second hand rather than new and trying to fix items rather than throwing them away. Anyone going to the Hororata Night Glow, can come to visit our stall and support our passionate young eco-warriors.

Carbon Farming - just a green initiative to plant trees on your property, right? There are an incredible range of opportunities to get involved in carbon farming. Farming to maximise production across all your land classes, increase revenue streams and on-farm profitability through additional commodity production and market trading. Improve conservation, biodiversity, environmental and recreational on farm values, all with the cobenefit of reducing your industry, country and global green-house gas emissions? Have you thought about how climate change may affect your businesses, your environment, your way of life and your children’s future for farming? Carbon farming is one of the great answers to this question, with minimal farm management changes, and tonne’s of additional benefits. With agriculture’s contribution to reducing New Zealand’s Greenhouse Gas emissions being to reduce biological methane by 10% by 2030 from 2017 levels, have you thought

about what your opportunities are in order to be a part of this change? The AgriBusiness Group welcomes Canterbury farmers to attend one of three Carbon Farming seminars (Glenavy, Ashburton, Darfield) to understand the science, policy, and market opportunities that exist to farmers in Canterbury. The seminars are an initiative through the Canterbury Regional Economic Development Strategy managed by the Canterbury Mayoral Forum. The Strategy is in place to explore and inform different ways of increasing the productivity and economic development of the greater Canterbury region. We have teamed up with respected guest speakers, Dr Anita Wreford from the Agribusiness and Economics Research Unit and Dave Janett from Forest Management Services, who will present their wealth of knowledge on the topic and provide answers to the many questions of carbon farming. The workshops will also include presentations from local farmers who will share their

The Malvern Spinners and Weavers meet at 10am in the St Joseph’s Parish Centre on the second Monday of each month.

This month the Malvern Spinners and Weavers are hosting a ‘Drop-in Day’ which

will be held at the Darfield library. “This is a great chance to come and try a new skill and see how spinning has changed over the years and has now reached the 21st ce ntury,” s aid a spokesperson for the Group! “Come and have a go with the pin loom, sample-it loom, drop spindle and spinning wheel…or just bring your knitting/crochet and join us for a cuppa,” they concluded.

experiences of being involved in carbon farming. Whether you’re farming dairy, arable, sheep or beef, these seminars will provide useful information to all farm systems. Carbo n F arm ing is a n opportunity for farmers to not only make use of their marginal land, but to also provide a solution to many large corporate companies who need to offset their carbon emissions, think your fuel providers or transport agencies who don’t own land themselves to grow carbon sequestration opportunities, this is where you as farmers can be leaders in the carbon farming game. Offset your own emissions, as well as sell your surplus carbon to those who need to offset their own emissions. To attend this free event interest needs to be registered and spaces may be limited.

A little over six years ago the Kirwee Recreational Reserve Committee started working with Selwyn District Council to expand the Reserve. After hundreds of hours of work the first shovel went in the ground on a stunning Selwyn morning. Early in the planning stage the Committee decided it was in the best interests of the whole community to invite members of the Township Committee to be involved in the development of the Reserve. This led to the forming of a designated group tasked with working with the community, Selwyn District Council and local sports clubs to create the best possible space. Part of the plan that has been developed to date is the

Page 9

planting of a native border along the northern and western borders of the Reserve. The plan has been created in conjunction with Te Ara Kākāriki who have a mission to create a greenway of native ‘Greendots’ across the greater Selwyn District. The purpose of the Greendots is to not only bring native plants to the Selwyn area, but also all the flora and fauna that will follow. Imagine sitting down to watch a sports’ game with fantails, bellbirds and maybe even tui in the trees behind you singing their song. On Friday, May 10th the entire Kirwee Model School (KMS) started the planting. The passion and hard work that 148 students, plus families, teachers

and the Principal showed in planting over 500 trees and shrubs was outstanding and is a moment that everyone involved will always cherish. “It was a great day and on behalf of the Kirwee Recreation Reserve Management committee a big thank you to the school children, teachers, parents and members of the community who helped. I am sure the children will look back with long-lasting fond memories of the day,” commented the Chairperson of the Kirwee Recreation Reserve Ma na g em e nt Co mm i tt e e, Raewyn Feast. Feast On Saturday, May 11th, the sun was replaced by a cool misty morning, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of community members who continued planting along the western border. There were even some KMS students who came back to plant some more! The Kirwee Recreational Reserve and the Township committee would like to thank the over 200 volunteers who gave up their time to come along and help make a difference. It is amazing when the community comes together to work on a project like this.

The film ‘She Shears’ is a New Zealand documentary written and directed by J ack Nicol, Nicol which presents the story of five women shearers, all now world champions. The film has had numerous good reviews. So how do folk get to see it? Thanks to Rural Women and Farmlands, who have sponsored the screening, it will be shown in Darfield. As a fundraiser the Darfield High School Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) will provide the venue and the supper to follow.

It is hot, sweaty, daggy and dirty in a woolshed, however, for the five women starring in the New Zealand documentary, ‘She Shears’, shearing has an

One of the primary aims of Rural Women New Zealand is building rural communities and it was with this in mind that RWNZ decided to facilitate the screening.

He gives the back-breaking competition a magical quality without deflecting from the skill and strength of the female competitors. “Yes, the women are competing in a male-dominated field, but this film never makes the story about the men, nor measures the genders against each other,” continued This NZ Life. After seeing various write-ups and reviews, two members of the Darfield Branch of Rural Women New Zealand went to the Christchurch film premiere. Their enjoyment of it saw them recommend it to

Pagan Karauria is a Central Otago shearer and wool handler who has returned to the Golden Shears following a car accident that killed two of her friends.

Former world champion sheep shearer Jills Angus Burney is now a High Court barrister and solicitor, but is a veteran shearer and former Women’s World Record holder.

Emily Welch, who also loves shearing took over took over Jills’ record in 2007, shearing 648 lambs in nine hours.

Four men are in the hospital waiting room because their wives are having babies. A nurse goes up to the first guy and says, "Congratulations! You're the father of twins." "That's odd," answers the man. "I work for the Minnesota Twins!" A nurse says to the second guy, "Congratulations! You're the Father of triplets!" "That's weird," answers the second man. "I work for the 3M company!" A nurse tells the third man, "Congratulations! You're the Father of quadruplets!" "That's strange," he answers. "I work for the Four Seasons Hotel!" The last man is groaning and banging his head against the wall. "What's wrong?" the others ask…. "I work for 7 Up!"
