 Westpac manager, Tim Dow, presented up and coming young Whangarei golfer, Kadin Neho, with his third consecutive Westpac Northern Wairoa Open trophy. Neho finished 11 under par (205), matching his winning score in 2012. Northern Wairoa Golf Club captain, Basil Smith, described Neho’s play over the Queen’s birthday weekend tournament as “sensational, with a spectacular 29 for nine holes on the opening day.” In second place was Chase McKeown of Waipu at 2 under, with Luke Brown of The Pines in third. In April seventeen year old Neho became the first Northland golfer to win the New Zealand Amateur Championship in 120 years, and was recently selected for the National Development Squad.

Budding young conservationists  by Sheri O’Neill

Forty Maungaturoto Primary School students from Rooms Eight and Nine helped out with the planting of more than 200 native seedlings on the Utopia Road farm of Sam and Vanessa Hartles.

The hotel shut down in May, and negotiations then began on a new lease. The pub is owned by David and Joan Goode, who bought and managed the business from 1971 to 1978, before leasing it out. The renovation project now underway is being led by their daughter, Pam, who grew up locally and went to school at Paparoa Primary and Otamatea College. She is working with an hotel consultant and new lessees are standing by to take up the management reins. “It will be a family friendly hotel, with bistro services in the lounge bar as well as a more formal dining room. We will offer not just cold beer, but great coffee and meals too,” said Joan. “That includes all the great local produce Kaipara has to offer. The hotel accommodation is also

The Hartles, recent winners of a Northland Regional Council Sustainable Land Management merit award, say they were surprised and delighted to receive the plants free of charge from Whakapirau couple, David and Vikki Churcher, who saw The Kaipara Lifestyler’s recent story about the Hartles’ win. The Churcher’s have been propagating natives for several years for local Clean Stream Accord riparian projects, and wanted to support the Hartles’ plans for their farm. “Way back up the rivers is where we really need to get the trees in,” says David. Room Nine teacher, Daniel Alcock, says the activity aligned nicely with

being upgraded after years without being utilised for travellers. And we will have a new dining room seating 20 which will also be available for functions.” In other refurbishment, the enclosed beer garden to the side of the pub has been opened up, and will feature a garden setting for outdoor entertainment. With a facelift for the accommodation section well underway, painters are next on the list for internal and external freshening up. “It will bring a new lease of life to the surrounding community, and our plans include close co-operation and promotion with other hospitality businesses in the area. Paparoa is very much a gateway to Kaipara, and it’s our intention that the re-newed pub will be a big part of that,” Joan added.

Documenting a century of fire fighting

 by Rose Rees-Owen

Former firefighter, Noel Moran, is delving into the history of the Dargaville Volunteer Fire Brigade and compiling a book for their centennial in September.

 Noel Moran reading a minute book for the Dargaville Fire Brigade centenary book

Noel is a life member of the brigade and served for 33 years joining in the early 70s and says the book is a labour of love. “There wasn’t much information at the 75th Jubilee, just a broad overview. I felt it was important to cover the history of the brigade for the centennial.” He covers from when the brigade formed on August 8, 1913, right up to present day with each decade a chapter. He also pays tribute to prominent members including the Murdoch brothers, Bruce, Gary, Rex and Ross who between them have served for more than 140 years.

“I got bits and pieces from all sorts of places,” says Noel. He has been sifting through minute books, roll books as well as sourcing information from the Dargaville Museum, the library as well as journalist, Brian Eastwood and historian, Noel Hilliam. Owning Moran’s Bookshop has also been helpful with locals coming in to share their tales. Once he’s completed the A4 sized soft copy book it will be sold during the celebrations. Noel encourages anyone with information or photos regarding the fire brigade to share it with him and visit him at Moran’s Bookshop.

Blackboard concert outgrows venue  Te Kopuru resident, Carolyn Long, was among the 17 performers at the first Dargaville Acoustic Music Group blackboard concert sponsored by the Dargaville Arts Association. Performers chalked up their names creating a programme on a blackboard and gave it a go. Thirty-four attended in total and owners of the Commercial Hotel, Pam and Peter Kelly, were among the audience. They said it was a ‘fantastic evening.’ “There was a huge amount of variety, from old-time favourites to more modern tunes,” says Pam, “It was also great to see the performers grow in confidence in their second performance.” The response was so great that it outgrew the Lifestyler House and a bigger venue is required for the next concert at the Commercial Hotel on July 4. Concerts will be held on the first Thursday of every month.

Boaties who illegally clean boat hulls on the foreshore pose a threat to the marine environment and risk daily fines of $500, the Northland Regional Council warns.

The 1st Dargaville Girls’ Brigade is having a special set of birthdays this week as Girls’ Brigade marks 120 years internationally, 85 years in New Zealand, and the Dargaville company turns 27. During Girls’ Brigade Week from June 10– 17, Girls’ Brigades throughout the world are celebrating with prayers and a walkathon, and Dargaville Brigade team leader, Pauline Taylor, says that the Dargaville girls will be taking part in a sponsored nine kilometre walk with all five Northland companies in Whangarei on Sunday, June 16. “The walk will incorporate displays of the history of the Brigade at each company headquarters, and the money raised will go to A Girl Called Hope, a non–profit organisation helping young women,” Pauline says. “Anyone who has had any involvement in Girls’ Brigade is most welcome to join us.” Sixty girls aged five to 16 are currently in the Dargaville Brigade, meeting weekly for practical and creative activities. “Recently our juniors were kindly hosted by the Dargaville Vet Clinic and the Duck Creek Centre, where they learned the importance of immunising and spaying their pets as part of a pet section in their badge work,” Pauline says. She says to look out for the girls and their supporters around town in Dargaville between 3.30–5pm on Thursday, June 13, when they will be asking for donations. “We are very grateful to the public for their support, which has helped keep the Dargaville Brigade running these past 27 years.” Information: 09 439 7507.

Well, we here at the Kaipara Lifestyler are aiming to change all of that with a little Midwinter Christmas gift of our own.

Putting the spark in Kaipara engines  by Andy Bryenton

It’s not just pistons and petrol which keep your engine pumping — vehicles both modern and classic rely on well maintained electrical systems to function at peak efficiency, especially at this cold time of year. As well as providing the ‘pulse’ of your engine, electrical systems play a huge part in other ways as well; powering alarms for security, stereo systems for entertainment, and GPS for navigation to name just a few. Here in Dargaville the trusted name in auto electrical for over a decade has been VOS, situated right in the centre of town in what is fast becoming a hub for all things automotive. New next door neighbours Kaipara Motorcycles have brought a new range of off road machines to the corner of Normanby Street, but under the VOS and Battery Town signs in the same complex you’ll find that it’s business as usual, as qualified auto electrical technician Denis Little takes care of vehicles big and small. The range of vehicles he services is testament to his skill and experience —

everything from motorcycles to tractors, trucks to boats, caravans to ATV’s — and the range of jobs he undertakes for his very satisfied customers is just as varied. Need a new stereo installed, or DVD players fitted to keep the kids happy on those long trips? No problem! How about an alarm system for peace of mind, or even a GPS tracking unit to deter thieves and promote safety? All sorted. And when it comes to the technical job of re-wiring, upgrading and restoring vehicles, Denis and the VOS team have you covered. With winter here, and the cold taking a toll on starters, alternators and other vital parts, it makes sense to have your vehicle checked. Begin with a battery check, or give VOS a call to make use of their mobile service on your farm — a little forward planning now will save frustrating breakdowns this winter.

New generation delivers a fresh approach Toyota’s RAV4 has proven a hit across all three of its previous generations — a vehicle which fits into the perfect ‘goldilocks’ size and shape for many Kiwi families. The original 1994 iteration of the neat little 4x4 was a departure from what was seen as the norm at the time, of the SUV as a huge, heavy mud-slinging and serious tool. RAV4 won over fans with its unique styling, keeping them with a combination of traditional Toyota reliability and a definite fun factor. Successive generations of the RAV4 have grown bigger as drivers demand more internal space, greater safety and more in-car technology — indeed, the RAV4 may have begun the battle for the ‘small, fun sports utility’ niche back in the 90’s, but there has been no resting on the proverbial laurels over at Toyota HQ. The fourth generation RAV4 has grown up, but it still has a sense of fun, and the feeling that with this machine one could take anyone and anything almost anywhere. The RAV4 range for 2013 allows customers to decide from the very start exactly what they want from their new Toyota. All share the same new styling — smooth and uncomplicated by excessive visual noise, with a commandingly high driving position and a dominant stance, thanks to bold alloys, a swept-back roofline and a front grille treatment bringing the RAV4 in line with Toyota’s new design aesthetic. Gone is the 3rd gen spare wheel shell across the tailgate, which now opens with an actuated assist. At the top of the range sits a seriously capable 2.2 turbo-diesel with all the modern conveniences you would expect in a more pricey machine, plus a couple of new innovations (like a very smart blind spot sensor to make lane changes safer) which are Toyota’s own work. In fact, the flagship Limited RAV4 comes complete

with a suite of tech unmatched for its price — satellite navigation, bluetooth, connectivity for a spectrum of mobile gadgetry, dual zone aircon and heated leather seats to name a few. On the road the Limited felt planted, and surprisingly responsive despite the fact that the new RAV4 looks almost as large as the now-retired Prado. Toyota’s engineers have tried their hardest to keep the fun, essentially zippy character of the original RAV4 alive through the handling profile of their latest offering, and with the optional ‘sport’ mode button that definitely shines through. An optional ‘eco’ mode makes the auto gearbox a touch less aggressive, too, and reduces fuel consumption to a respectable 6.5L per 100kms. It’s a comfortable and capable 4x4, and one which won’t get stuck in any old mud puddle; there’s even that badge of off road competency, too — a proper hill descent assist. Torque delivered by the bucketload means towing will not be an issue, either. At the other end of the spectrum sits the 2-wheel-drive, 2 litre petrol GX model; the least expensive of the new RAV4 family. While some would cry heresy at the fact that a RAV4 with front wheel drive was even considered, consider this — many SUV owners are not out there to conquer the Paris to Dakar. Some want the roomy practicality of a 4X4 without, as it were, the 4. In the suburbs, the ‘crossover’ has replaced the station wagon in a big way, and Toyota know their market. The 2 wheel drive RAV is a hot seller, and it achieves its very affordable price tag by paring away many of the electronic

gadgets seen on the Limited, without compromising on looks. The 2 litre engine is mated to a seven stage CVT box, providing respectable pick up and go, though after driving the turbo diesel the lower torque output is noticeable.

That being said, the petrol power plant punches above its weight, with 7.4L per 100km fuel efficiency and ample power to move the now fairly imposing fourth generation RAV4 through busy traffic without a fuss.

The Dargaville Club is famously inclusive — in fact, you’ll find that most locals have shared a game of pool or a pint or two within its walls over the years. a good  time. Club management want to showcase the facilities and benefits of their venue to new faces in the area, and to welcome one and all for an ‘open day’ — a day when patrons don’t have to be a member or the guest of a member to take part. With yearly membership dues some of the lowest among comparable organisations, the Dargaville Club offers a unique atmosphere for a very reasonable price indeed. Those who attend the open day (from 3pm on Saturday the 15th of June) may very well be tempted to make the Club their regular meeting place, and existing members and management promise to give all comers a warm welcome with this in mind. ■

Membership still brings its privileges, though, and in an effort to boost membership numbers this long-standing Kaipara institution is holding an open day on the 15th of June. There could be no better time to show off the convivial atmosphere and civilised accoutrements of the Club to potential members — the 15th is a Saturday, in the heart of rugby season, and it’s a night when the All Blacks take on France in a decisive test match. Many locals will remember the excellent coverage the venue gave for New Zealand’s victorious rugby world cup campaign, and it’s all set to be another excellent night of sports entertainment, with a big screen broadcasting the action live. There’s even a van service available to ferry folks to and from the Club on the day. Add to this a full menu from the kitchen, drinks specials, and free pool and snooker as a ‘warm up’ to the big game, and you can be assured of

Dinner at the Dargaville Town Hall concluded the celebrations and the current president Keith Allen and past president Harold Sherson cut the cake. Chair of the Jubilee subcommittee, Eryn Wilson-Collins, says the weekend was a success. “All the committee’s hard work was worth it when we saw people catching up and exchanging stories.” She adds a touching moment was hearing the audience sing along with the musical numbers of the show.

It will be the second time the musical is performed at the Little Theatre first produced in 1973. Auditions at Dargaville Little Theatre June 23, 4pm. Contact Keith Allen 09 439 4605.

Northern Wairoa A&P Association ARAPOHUE SHOW The Northern Wairoa A & P Association is holding a general interest public meeting on Monday 24th June 2013 in the Arapohue Hall at 7:00pm. The purpose of this meeting is to get some direction of the show over the ensuing years. • The Arapohue Show has been in existence since 1892. • To keep this event going into the future, we need new younger enthusiastic members and/ or younger helpers to help with the running of the show. The average age of the committee is mid-60’s at present and our eldest member is in his eighties. • The Arapohue Show is a great family event. • This year the equestrian side of the show increased two-fold thanks to two very enthusiastic younger equestrian people and this is what we need throughout the whole show. • We need some input from the community so that we can improve what we have at the moment into something that is really enjoyed by everyone, of all ages. So what we would like is for members of the community to come to our public meeting and discuss the direction that the show should be taking. Please do not let this event disappear. It is a lot of work for a one day show but we all enjoy putting the event together for others to enjoy as well. Contacts – Brian Hutchings 09 439 4998 or Nicky Poyner 09 439 5595
