RAGLAN Chronicle 7


Raglan team awake to challenges of epic walk

Raglan Wahine team from left: Trina Regnier, Rachel Bailey, Ani Brunet and Sharlene Poole gather to discuss a training regime for 100km walk

The   bootâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   well   and   truly   on   the   other   foot   for   Sharlene   Poole   as   she   and   three   other   Raglan   women   train  up  for  a  charity  event  in  which   theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll   have   to   walk   100   kilometres   in  24  hours. Sharlene  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  better  known  around  town,   and   the   country,   as   the   baby   whisperer   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   is   usually   preoccupied   with   issues   like   getting   new   parents   and   their   babies   a   good   nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   sleep.     But   for   the   Oxfam   Trailwalker  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  the  staying  awake  all  night   that  she  expects  to  really  test  the  mettle  of   the  Raglan  quartet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   a   massive   challenge,â&#x20AC;?   Sharlene   admits   of   the   upcoming   endurance   walk,   which  skirts  the  shores  of  Lake  Taupo. The  entry  of  a  Raglan  team  in  whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   described   as   â&#x20AC;&#x153;the   worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   greatest   team   challengeâ&#x20AC;?  came  about  after  Sharlene  and   friend  Rachel  Bailey  of  Tonic  Hairdressing   biked   around   the   mountain,   completing   last  yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Karioi  Classic. The  pair  then  looked  about  for  another   challenge  they  could  take  on  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  one  not  just   for  themselves  this  time,  Sharlene  told  the   Chronicle,  but  also  for  a  worthwhile  cause. It   was   the   Oxfam   Trailwalker   that   captured   Sharleneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   imagination   as   she  

searched  online.  In  New  Zealand,  Oxfam   works   as   part   of   the   global   network   by   UDLVLQJPRQH\IRUIDPLOLHVÂżJKWLQJSRYHUW\ LQ6RXWKHDVW$VLDDQGWKH3DFLÂżF â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  all  love  visiting  these  islands  but   PDQ\ RI WKHP QHHG KHOS ÂżQDQFLDOO\ WR improve  or  create  better  daily  resources  in   education  and  sanitation,â&#x20AC;?  says  Sharlene. So   she   and   Rachel,   along   with   local   yoga   teacher   Ani   Brunet   and   Te   Mata   School   deputy   principal   Trina   Regnier,   joined   forces   and   have   started   training   with  a  vengeance. One  night  at  6.30  they  set  out  walking   from  town  to  Te  Toto  Gorge  and  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  get   back   till   midnight.   Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   quite   a   challenge   and  â&#x20AC;&#x153;a  bit  scaryâ&#x20AC;?  walking  in  the  dark  with   only  a  head  torch  to  show  the  way,  reckons   Sharlene,  but  in  a  team  of  four  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  okay.   The   Trailwalker   event   encourages   walkers,   in   their   teams   of   four,   to   cross   WKHÂżQLVKOLQHWRJHWKHUDQGWRGRLWZLWKLQ 36  hours.  Each  team  must  also  commit  to   raising   at   least   $2000   to   support   Oxfam   NZâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  work.   Raglan   Wahine,   as   the   local   teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   called,   have   set   the   bar   higher   than   that   and   hope   to   collect   $2500   through   a   few   fundraising   gimmicks.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each   of   us   is   giving   away   something   that   comes   naturally,â&#x20AC;?   explains   Sharlene   of   her   own  

baby-­whispering   sessions,   Rachelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   haircuts  and  Aniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  yoga  lessons. Now  the  team  are  psyching  up  for  an   overnight   walk   around   Karioi,   and   at   the   end   of   this   month   theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   tackling   the   Tongariro   Crossing   with   Rachelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   and   Aniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  husbands,  who  will  be  their  support   crew   in   a   hired   campervan   for   the   big   April  Trailwalker.   The  four  are  trying  to  include  different   terrains   in   their   training   because,   adds   Sharlene,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll   be   walking   around   the   backblocks   and   hills   (farmlands)   of   Taupoâ&#x20AC;?.   The   course   starts   at   Kinloch,   heads  towards  Taupo  and  then  beyond  that   to  near  Huka  Falls.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  going  to  be  very  tough,â&#x20AC;?  Sharlene   says.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rachel  and  Trina  just  did  a  training   weekend  in  Auckland,  50  kilometres  over   two  days,  and  came  back  exhausted!â&#x20AC;?

Councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Column The  New  Year  is  well   underway  with  long   spells  of  warm,  sunny   weather  attracting   unprecedented  numbers   of  visitors  through   the  holiday  season   and  particularly  on   weekends  and  public   holidays  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  Raglanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   attractions  are  more   popular  than  ever.    Although  this  puts  pressure   on  our  community  we  cope  well  and  it  is  good  to   hear  from  police  reports  that  overall  behaviour   has  been  good.     Thinking  about  community  response  brings  me   to  an  issue  that  needs  greater  awareness  from  us   all  and  that  is  civil  defence.    The  Waikato  District   Council  has  responsibility  for  civil  defence   emergency  management  and  in  the  event  of  an   emergency  our  police  and  emergency  services   are  prepared  to  act.    One  of  the  areas  that  needs   more  community  involvement  is  neighbourhood   support. On  Wednesday,  6th  February  2013  an  earthquake   struck  the  Solomon  Islands  resulting  in  a  tsunami   WKUHDWWRRWKHU3DFLÂżFLVODQGVLQFOXGLQJ1HZ Zealand.    The  New  Zealand  west  coast  was   VSHFLÂżFDOO\PHQWLRQHGDQGWKLVVHUYHGWRPDNHXV think  of  our  preparedness.    Although  there  was   QRVLJQLÂżFDQWLPSDFWRQWKDWRFFDVLRQLWZDVD reminder  of  the  need  to  be  vigilant  and  well-­ prepared  personally  and  communally  for  such   events. Constable  Raewyn  McLachlan  and  Kathy   Gilbert  have  been  organising  a  support  group   which  includes  the  recruitment  of  volunteers   to  identify  what  support  needs  are  required  in   each  neighbourhood.    So  far  there  has  been  good   support  from  rural  areas  around  Raglan  but   greater  involvement  in  the  town  itself  is  needed.     It  is  important  to  ensure  that  needy  people  in  our   community  are  supported  during  times  of  crisis.     We  all  need  to  check  our  neighbours  at  such   times. I  am  hopeful  that  in  the  near  future  an  emergency   response  plan  for  Raglan  will  be  distributed  but   in  the  meantime  if  you  would  like  to  be  part  of  a   neighbourhood  support  group  or  if  you  need  to   pass  on  your  needs/circumstances  please  make   contact  with  Constable  Raewyn  McLachlan  or   Kathy  Gilbert  at  Raglan  Police  Station  (825   8200). Council  is  back  into  its  meeting  schedule  for   WKH\HDUDQGWKHÂżUVWFRPPXQLW\ERDUGPHHWLQJ was  on  Tuesday  12th  February.    Council  is  in  the   ÂżQDOSUHSDUDWLRQIRUWKHDQQXDOSODQGUDIWDQGDV indicated  in  the  long  term  plan,  will  be  working   to  maintain  what  we  have  and,  if  possible,  to   reduce  general  rate  movement. In  my  last  column  I  noted  that  the  Raglan  Sunday   bus  issue  was  still  being  worked  through  and   since  then  there  have  been  a  number  of  meetings   on  the  topic.    Council  has  supported  the  funding   of  a  service  that  will  be  managed  by  the  Chamber   of  Commerce.    This  could  be  the  forerunner  of   how  bus  services  could  be  operated  in  small   communities  in  the  future  as  public  transport   funding  is  reduced  by  government. In  closing,  council  has  a  number  of  bylaw   reviews  in  2013  including  district  speed  limits,   water  supply,  keeping  of  animals,  dog  control,   liquor  control  and  others.    A  pretty  busy  year   aheadâ&#x20AC;Ś. Remember  that  all  Council  agendas  and  minutes   are  on  the  WDC  website  -­  www.waikatodistrict. co.nz.     If  you  would  like  to  discuss  council  issues  with   PHSOHDVHFRQWDFWPHWKURXJKWKHFRXQFLORIÂżFH on  825  8129,  on  my  mobile  phone  021  155  3778,   or  email  me  clint.baddeley@waidc.govt.nz   Regards Clint
