Thank you to the Lions for work they do throughout the year at the Lions Op Shop which provides funding for such events. The weather was perfect, the floats were amazing, and there was a great crowd cheering on the side lines. The festivities continued throughout the evening with a spectacular fireworks display at midnight. This was followed next evening by a brighter than usual night sky as the first full moon of the year is called ‘Wolf Moon’ and this particular one was a ‘super moon’. The extra bright moon appears bigger because the moon is closer to the earth (the perigee). This in turn created the ‘king tides’ which caused the unusually high tides which battered our shores. Coupled with high wind and heavy rain some areas around the coast were flooded .Our thoughts go to those dealing with flood damage. Thank you to the emergency services who helped to get things

back to normal and restore power to the region. After the large influx of summer visitors and the wild weather Raglan is gradually turning back to normal. The first Crop Swap meeting of the year was held at the Bowling Club with heaps of home grown produce and several new members. The Crop swap meets twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Sunday at 9-30 at the Raglan Bowling Club The Knitters Circle continues to meet every Wednesday morning at the Orca Restaurant, while the Saturday Club meets at 9-30 every Saturday at the Raglan Community House. The Community House reopens on Monday 15th January along with the revamped Bargain Basement Opportunity Shop. The rest of the Senior Groups will begin in February. The 2018 Raglan Senior Directory is being updated so if there are any new groups or changes to existing groups please contact the Raglan House. Pauline Abrahams

Thousands of dune plantings intact despite weather bomb

Also at H.G Webb House, Cnr Boundary & Victoria Streets, Hamilton

Angeline - spinifex in hand - in front of the fenced-off dune planting area and cautionary placard.

R

aglan environmentalist and Wainamu Beach resident Angeline Greensill didn’t expect a big storm in early January – but despite it all the 6000 dune grasses planted late last year are thriving, she says. Fencing and signage erected along a one-kilometre stretch of the beach to protect the dune plantings has also been effective, she told the Chronicle. “As long as you designate an area (not to be used),

people will respect it,” she adds. Angeline expects the clumps of grassy storm debris strewn above the usual hightide mark will actually serve to trap more sand. Meanwhile the spinifex at the beach – referred to colloquially as Ocean Beach – is now dropping seeds which will be propagated in the Kokiri Centre nursery ready to add to additional plantings later this year. The work is part of an ongoing programme by volunteers from Whaingaroa

Angeline explains that the old sewage pipe is her measure of how much the beach has risen over the years.

Last week's storm caused flooding around Raglan, including on Wainui Rd near the sewage ponds, with water from the harbour spilling on to the road. Image // Ken Hansen - https://www.facebook.com/kenhansenphotographer

Beach Care and Tainui hapu to counteract the effects of coastal erosion. Angeline – who is Tainui’s environmental advocate – explains that sand deposited at the beach by the sea, once it has dried, is blown onshore by the wind and captured by plants like spinifex and pingao. When the sand is wet again it cements itself in place. Every year Waikato Regional Council, in partnership with Waikato District Council, funds the dune plants used to restore Whaingaroa’s coastal reserves. Although “we could’ve done with double the amount of grasses” it’s still adequate, Angeline says. “We have a few spare plants (to fill in the gaps) from our own nursery.” Meantime there are a few stakes to drive back into the sand, she adds, to reconnect sections of the string fence that entangled or were pulled apart by last week’s storm. Angeline is philosophical about the cyclic nature of sand movement and knows “you can’t beat the sea”, but is convinced community efforts to protect the dunes are working. She can see progress by standing at the old Raglan sewage pipeline which juts out onto the beach below her seafront home – which itself has been threatened by the tide over the years. “The beach has risen,” she insists, showing how the pipe was once way above her head but is now eye-level. “At some point we won’t have to do this (dune planting) any more.” Her late father Tex Rickard helped during his lifetime by diligently building fascines to trap sand on the beach in front of the recently renovated Kokiri stage, where a retaining bank of tyres and plantings was also built back in 2014. The surplus tyres will soon be removed from that area, says Angeline, and people are being discouraged from walking their dogs over the now-stabilised bank by ‘private property’ signs which also ask the public to “please respect our whenua”.

Raglan student’s summer camp not one for basking

H

uddling in a tent in Antarctica as temperatures plunge to minus six overnight is a far cry from Clare Beet’s warm childhood memories of camping out every summer alongside Wainui stream down the bottom of her parents’ Raglan property.

But needs must for this 25-year-old PhD student who ultimately hopes to become a

research scientist. Right now she’s on her second field trip to the world’s most southern landmass – and setting up camp in what’s also the coldest, driest, windiest and highest of the continents is just part and parcel of what’s required. “It’s definitely an experience,” Clare told the Chronicle before leaving Raglan on Tuesday for Christchurch, where she was to be kitted out at Antarctica New Zealand (Institute) for the big trip ahead. “Two pairs of long-johns, six thermals, three jackets, pants, boots, gloves, ski mask and buff for the neck,” she itemised off the top of her head. “You fly down on a Hercules, an American military plane, wearing extreme weather boots and jacket,” she explained. “The Hercules lands on retractable skis.” After a seven or eight-hour flight, the 20 to 30-odd passengers plus cargo will be deposited in Antarctica on sea ice. “It’s just white everywhere with a couple of mountains in the distance,” she added. “Awesome!” From there it’s a bus trip to Scott Base – the New Zealand Antarctic research facility “over the road” from the larger US McMurdo Station – where visiting scientists, engineers, politicians, media, photographers, builders and cleaners all congregate. “It feels like everyone’s kind of equal,” Clare insists. A huge mix of people is involved in the running of Scott Base, which can accommodate 85 guests at any one time but hosts more than 300 during the summer season. Clare will spend the first couple of days re-doing her field training out on the ice – which means learning how to build a kitchen shelter, use the gas cookers and put up the tents – before venturing further away to camp as part of a small research team in a dry desert-cum-rocky region for a few weeks, studying Antarctic Springtails. They’re terrestrial (land) invertebrates that look like ants, she says. At about oneand-a-half millimetres long, they’re the largest year-round animal in Antarctica because the penguins and seals spend a lot of time offshore. “But the springtails tough it out all year round.” Her project is part of a bigger

programme looking at the resilience of Antarctic ecosystems in the face of global warming, she adds. The springtails will be located among the rocks of the Dry Valleys region and “heated up” under plastic cloches or tents to see the genetic impact this has on their survival. Clare was on a similar mission two years ago and has a vivid memory of waking up in her shared tent to the alien landscape around her. “There was this massive glacier in front of me with no-one else around for miles. It’s a humbling experience away from everyone at the bottom of the world … you almost have to pinch yourself. “But I feel like last time I was quite overwhelmed by a lot of it and this time will appreciate it more.” Clare says she always wanted to go to Antarctica. And when working on a summer research project at Waikato University in 2015 “the opportunity fell into my lap”. That was when a supervisor asked her if she wanted to participate in the programme. “And you don’t say no to a question like that.” Just before her first field trip she also discovered that fellow Waikato University student Dean Sandwell – who also grew up in Upper Wainui Road, a few doors from Clare – was on the same excursion. “How unlikely is that!” she laughs. But that was then and this is now and so far, says Clare, “2018 is looking pretty good for me”. On her return from Antarctica in February she’ll be busy working on her PhD, then come mid year she’s off to the Canadian Arctic “to replicate the (springtails) experiment at both ends of the world”. There’ll be another trip early next year back to Antarctica, she adds. Clare says it’s hard not to be impressed by the wildlife and the pristine environment of Antarctica. “Last time one of the engineers (at Scott Base) set up a hot tub outside and we just sat there looking at all the seals.” And on a helicopter flight out to the field “past the edge of the ice shelf just beyond a small group of penguins” there were literally hundreds of orcas, she recalls. “It’s hard to comprehend.” Edith Symes


Ozone Kites and Kitesurfing: A Q&A with Morgan Coster

Animal Health Column For Raglan People + their Pets

The perils of roaming dogs

R

oaming dogs are a common occurrence in our little town of Raglan.

The crew from Ozone Kites and Kitesurfing.

T

his week the Chronicle spoke to Morgan Coster from ozone Kites and Kitesurfing about his kitesurfing addiction.

-How did you first discover Kite Surfing? I first started with buggy kiting and paragliding when I was a kid (in Belgium - where I am from). I used to see these guys kitesurfing but it was not so popular at that stage (20 years ago). One day, after a long summer in France working in holiday resort I decided to buy a kitesurf package. I bought it online from a local shop in Brussels. They can't really sell kites to people who do not ride yet as you obviously need lessons so they were a bit funny and forced me to book lessons with them. -Did it take long to get addicted? So I was addicted before I even tried haha :-D -Tell me about the reality of teaching someone to Kite Surf. What are the steps involved? You start with some safety and theory on the beach, fly a trainer kite for a bit to get the hang of it. When you are good enough to get you on a water inflatable kite with more power and start doing exercises in order to get you ready for the board. Once you are ready for the board, we teach you how to get on it. It usually takes between 6

and 10h to get some rides ;-) The key is to never give up. Everyone gets it ;-) -How would you recommend someone prepares for learning to kite in terms of attitude, strength and fitness. The good thing with kiting is that there is many different way to do it. You could just cruise around while the harness holds the power for you (freedom and relax time guaranteed), you could go for some unhooked freestyle and wake boots on (sore muscles and adrenaline guaranteed), you can take a kitesurf board with no straps and get into the waves, ... So you will pick your discipline according to your fitness level and aims and you will have fun. Kiting is for everyone ;-) Are more woman getting involved in the sport? We definitely see more women getting into the sport, even in competitions. We don't mind that :-D What kind of feedback do you get from clients who give it a go? Loads of fun. Sometimes too excited to get on the board and realise they need us for a bit longer :-D It takes what it takes but you will remember your first ride forever !

There are multiple problems with this situation, for instance; a roaming dog is more likely to chase and potentially injure stock (putting themselves in immediate danger also), they are at a much greater risk of being in a road traffic accident (putting people in danger, i.e. drivers swerving to avoid hitting the dog), plus the risk of other events such as eating poisons (rat bait, ethylene glycol), or swallowing fish hooks etc. This is not to mention those dogs who have been poorly socialized and may create issues such as dog fights or even attack people. Unfortunately these situations always end badly for the dog, however the owner is often largely at fault also. There are many reasons a dog might find him or herself out roaming the streets, and more times than not, these reasons fall back heavily on the owner. These may include; lack of adequate fencing/a secure area for the dog, lack of attention from the owner and the dog becoming bored, lack of education in the owner around neutering of dogs, resulting in wandering behaviours in

seeking other dogs etc. There are also those owners who do not see any issue with allowing their dogs to wander the streets on a daily basis, and therefore have no intention of addressing the matter. This is a big issue, and should not be taken lightly. As a vet clinic, we have many dogs handed in due to ‘roaming’, some on a regular basis. There are multiple steps that can be taken to avoid escaping dogs, such as simply ensuring as a responsible dog owner you have secure fencing. If your dog is registered with the council, microchipped and added to the NZ companion animal register, then should your dog manage to escape at any point, they can be promptly reunited with their owner and kept out of harms way. Additionally, for a very small cost, you may consider purchasing an engraved dog ID tag for your dogs’ collar containing your contact details. Lets aim for a safer community for our families and our pets. For more information, or should you have any questions regarding the issue, please do not hesitate to contact the clinic to speak to a nurse. The Anexa Team

Waikato District Council report on weather and flooding

L

ast week’s severe weather event saw rain and wind lash the Waikato District with a large number of trees down and power lines also down in a number of areas.

While our Emergency Operation Centre didn’t activate, Council had a number of staff managing the situation for its residents. Staff also worked with a number of contractors such as WEL Networks and neighbouring councils throughout the event. Flooding thanks to the king tides affected Raglan, in particular Lorenzen Bay and along Wainui Road and Marine Parade. For a short while on Friday, Marine Parade was under water which isolated Kopua Camp. A number of houses on Lorenzen Bay were also flooded. During the storm there were also concerns for the wastewater network in Raglan, with several pump stations under water on Friday. Due to the potential for wastewater to escape from the network under these conditions, a wastewater overflow response was followed and staff and Council contractors worked hard to ensure no overflow occurred. Over the weekend signs were put up around the Lorenzen Bay and Wainui Road pump stations advising against swimming and shellfish collection as a precaution until more detailed investigation could be done. Staff completed this investigation earlier this week and can say that both the Lorenzen and Wainui Road

pump stations were submerged for approximately 1 hour on Friday January 5 between 2pm-3pm as a result of the king tide. In anticipation of the following king tide at 2.30am on Saturday, water crews worked through the night to ensure neither pump station was re-submerged. The Lorenzen Bay pump station continued to work while under water. No wastewater was discharged from this pump station. The Wainui Road pump station was flooded with sea water and also suffered damage to the pump control system which cut power to the pumps. At the time of flooding, the pump station contained 0.9m3 of wastewater. The total volume of the pump well is 9m3. The station lost power for approximately 1 hour while full with the diluted wastewater-sea water mixture and during this time staff estimate approximately 0.5m3 discharged from the manhole before the vacuum truck arrived. Council has had advice from Waikato Public Health Service who say that only a minimal risk to public health would exist under the circumstances and that the signs can come down. Raglan Harbour remains open. Council thanks Raglan residents for their help and assistance during the storm and would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to be prepared for an emergency. Check out www.civildefence.govt.nz for more information on how to stay safe in an emergency.

Raglan Lions’ New Year’s Eve Parade heralds in 2018

T

he annual Raglan Lions’ New Year’s Eve parade saw 2017 out with a flotilla of spectacular floats. A larger than usual crowd were treated to 25 creative community floats piped along by the Raglan Pipe Band. Representing Community, Sustainability, Education and Safety, the floats this year surpassed the judging panel’s expectations Lions’ president Bob MacLeod says. “We had a great range of floats and you could tell a lot of people had put some hard work into their floats.” More than 50 years’ old, the parade was initially organised by the local fire brigade before the Raglan Lions took it over around 47 years ago. Organised by the Raglan Lions Club, the event is made possible with funding for prize money from the Raglan Community Board. CATEGORY PRIZE WINNERS: Community 1st Raglan Volunteer Fire Brigade, 2nd Raglan Horticultural Society, 3rd Raglan Rowing Club Sustainable 1st Steam Punk, 2nd KASM, 3rd West Coast Warriors Education & Safety 1st Junior Surf, 2nd St Johns, 3rd Surf Rescue.

‘No Rules Here': An exhibition of work by emerging artists

‘N

o Rules Here', an exhibition of work by emerging artists is again being held at the Raglan Town Hall in Bow St as part of the annual Raglan Arts Weekend 2018. The exhibition includes an art activities program with opportunities for patrons to try painting and drawing, Henna Tattoo and Face Painting. Freelance film-maker, Maryann Tuao, who supported some of the artists by promoting them in the first successful Emerging Artists Exhibition Jan 2017, says the title of the exhibition reflects the deviation from the standard practice of how art works are usually shown. “These artists are pushing

the boundaries of how art is usually presented.” This year new local artists have joined the group of about 26 emerging artists who are aged from 9 years old to art-school graduates in their early 20s. Maryann says their collection of work captures emerging trends and themes in a range of media, including photography, painting, drawing, digital work, patchwork and quilting. Selected artwork will be available for sale, with the artists’ contact details available from the curators. ‘No Rules Here is at the Raglan Town Hall in Bow St during Auckland Anniversary Weekend (January 27-29, 2018), Saturday to Monday from 10am to 3pm.

Southern Trust and Harbourview Hotel provide Old School funding

A

generous donation from Southern Trust for close to $10,000 will help support operational costs at the Raglan Old School Arts Centre. The trust distributes money raised through venues operating gaming machines including Harbourview Hotel where Raglan Arts Council chair Rodger Gallagher made the application.

“Community funders such as Southern Trust play an important role in keeping the Old School open,” he says. “We are grateful for their support.” Southern Trust are a new supporter of the Old School Arts Centre. They return 95% of available proceeds to the community in which they were raised.

Native Bush & Harbour Views - 40 acres Located on the northern side of the Aotea Harbour, this 40 acre block has plenty of potential to develop further into your special hideaway escape. The property is comprised of mixed species native bush and approximately 10 acres of grazing land under dead-standing manuka trees which are ideal for a firewood supply and income option.

There are no words that can express the gratitude that we feel. No reira ka nui te mihi, ka nui te aroha ki a koutou katoa.
