Raglan lad shows older rivals way in Huntly half marathon Raglan lad Lenny Reynolds was anxious when it came to running the Huntly half marathon recently – and understandably so. Competing in the under-20s, the 11-year-old feared he was going to do badly and get left behind. He needn’t have worried. “Once I got going the atmosphere took me away,” he says. And it wasn’t long before Lenny was overtaking some of his much older competitors, going on to finish the 21.1-kilometre race in just 1hr 44mins 35secs – a respectable time for an adult let alone a CUSTOMER FAIRVIEW MOTORS PUBLISHING 01/11/12 lad not yet in his teens.

Lenny’s great showing in the Huntly half marathon wasn’t achieved without some hard work, though. The Raglan Area School pupil’s been doing lots of training around town and beyond: one circuit takes him from his home on Cliff Street to Upper Wainui Road and back – a total of 16 kilometres. Then there’s his hill circuits. He might start with a run around the three bridges then tackle Stewart, Long and Bow Streets – running up and down each of them10 times over! Why? Because hills are really good for fitness, of course. Lenny started running about a year ago because his family was doing “lots of fitness stuff”, he explains.

Jet spreads wings through new outlet in Cambridge

Snow coming to town Raglan Community House will be running the ‘Snow On The Beach’ festival once again this year following on from the success of our festival last year.

Jet – the artists collective which runs its own very successful shop in downtown Raglan – is taking off. Raglan ceramics artist Hayley Hamilton says she and three other local artists from Jet Collective are so convinced “shared creativity” works they’ve joined forces with three Cambridge artists to open another shop in the South Waikato town. Called LEFT because “everything we’ve used (to outfit the premises) had been left behind”, the shop’s a collaboration by a group of creatives who believe there’s a place for their hand-crafted products in today’s consumer-driven, technologysaturated culture. Like Jet which has traded in the main street of Raglan for 11 years now, the LEFT Makers Collective – as they’re called – not only own and operate the Cambridge gallery themselves but make every single piece of work within it. Also like Jet, each member of the collective works in the shop one day of the week where responsibility is shared, overheads are low and freight costs non-existent, says Hayley. “Shared creativity can succeed,” she insists, pointing to Jet’s longevity. Fellow Raglan artists Karla Stevenson – who, like Hayley, turns her hand to painting and ceramics – Sarah Stead who makes jewellery and

fabric designer Rebecca Dowling of Scintilla fame agree. “LEFT is a space that merges our creative worlds,” they say. They’d toyed with the idea of having a second outlet somewhere else for a few years now. After taking over an old Empire Street nightclub, the seven artists spent a month turning it into what Hayley describes as a “beautiful, romantic space”. Hayley’s hubby Craig built some walls and generally did the hard labour. “He didn’t know what he was getting himself into,” Hayley confessed to the Chronicle. In true Raglan style, just about everything used in the fit-out has been recycled. Even the shop sign outside was made from tin cans, old milk bottles and pellets, and it “looks beautiful” says Hayley. Retro amber lights from dumps and charity shops are also used along

with an old ladder, drums from a Salvation Army shop and a wooden counter from haberdashery days to show off displays inside. An old desk with a glass top contains jewellery, and shelving is made from old piano parts. The result is LEFT – a retail shop, a gallery, a creative space, a concept. “It is a way for us to open doors to our studios and workshops,” say the artists, “to let you peek inside and hang out for a while.” And not only is everything about the shop and its fittings “left behind”, adds Hayley, but the shop’s on the left of a one-way street in Cambridge – and, hey, Raglan’s on the left-hand side of New Zealand, she quips. LEFT opens officially with wine and nibbles tomorrow, Friday June 14 at 7pm, if Raglanites care to venture to Cambridge. Edith Symes

Early bird discount for dog owners For the second year in a row, Waikato district dog owners can save around $20 if they register their dog before the end of July. By now dog owners should have received their renewal notices reminding them that registration for the year to 30 June 2014 is due by 1 August. “The best thing to do is get in early, get the discount and keep your dog legal,” Waikato District Council General Manager Customer Support

Sue Duignan said. “By registering dogs, the council can ensure residents enjoy the benefits of dog ownership while minimising the risk of danger, distress and nuisance to the general public,” Ms Duignan said. If you are a new dog owner or already have approved status the dog registration fee is $88 (or $67 if you pay before 1 August). If you have general owner status the fee is $113 (or $93 with the discount). Selected or farm dog fees are $60 (or $39 with the discount).

Pilates classes have started Book now!

This year should be bigger and better with 10 tons of snow, bouncy castle, Music from RagFM, food and lots more. The event, which coincides with the annual Mid Winter Swim sponsored by Ray White will take place on Saturday 15th June at the Raglan Kopua Domain, just by the boat ramp and is a FREE event for all the family. Last year’s Snow on the Beach attracted a huge crowd and received very positive feedback. With an extra 3 tons of snow this year the event will hopefully attract more people and we hope it will become an annual event in Raglan. Raglan Community House has worked closely with Ray White Raglan Real Estate who will also be hosting the annual Mid Winter Swim. The swim will take place at 1pm with judging for best fancy dress etc taking place at 12.30pm. Entry in the swim is free and open to anyone brave enough to take the plunge into the cold waters of Raglan Harbour. For more information on the Snow on the Beach Festival or the Mid Winter Swim contact Tony at the Raglan Community House on 07 825 8142. You can see more information on the Raglan Community House Facebook page. Raglan Community House are also looking for volunteers to help us “spread the snow” on Saturday Morning. If you would like to help just turn up with your shovel at 10am at the boat ramp on the Kopua Domain. Dress Warm! For more information contact Tony on 07 825 8142 In the event of heavy rain the ‘Snow on the Beach’ Festival will be postponed until Saturday 29th June 2013

Green and delicious This is not about food – but hopefully it’s a recipe for success!

A wide and vibrant ‘green scene’(with a small g) is how one might describe the political landscape of Whaingaroa. There is a small committed group of Green (big G this time) members, but alongside the Party list is a very long list of people who have expressed interest in various initiatives undertaken by the Greens. There are also dozens - probably hundreds – of people in and around Raglan who are doing green things with energy and passion, deeply concerned about the effects of both on and offshore mining, land use, pollution of coasts and waterways, the safety of food and medicines - the list goes on. The Green Party recognises that, while a lot of people prefer not to connect with a political party or even the political process, come the General Elections next year, they may be looking for a voice that can articulate their concerns at national level. So a small group of people, both Green and green, at the heart of the Raglan green scene are looking at some innovative ways of networking all the various green interests, both to increase their own understanding of key issues for Whaingaroa, and to let people know what Green Party thinking is. Are we talking about lots of boring meetings? No way! We’re talking about a series of delicious roundthe-table potluck dinners where the conversation is relaxed and information is shared informally. Plans at present are to hold the dinners every two months, with skyped or live conversations with Green members of parliament on the alternate months. The latter sessions, while not round the dinner table, will still include shared food and social time. At our second green scene dinner, we all shared briefly why we are green – or Green – and the reasons were as varied as the number of people. Some are refugees from other parties, some come from a family tradition of radical politics, others are driven by concerns for the future of our children and grandchildren. If you would like to be part of the green scene, or just come along to a green gathering, join the contact list or look out for invitations in the Chronicle. Coming up on Monday June24th: Meet Gareth Hughes , the Green party spokesperson on seabed mining – a topic that will be concerning a lot of people in this part of the world. Venue: the Bowling Club, 7.15pm. Judith Collins

Pies a hit but shop closure real blow

Just about everyone other than the odd onion-hater seemingly loved Dave and Gail Brown’s generous pies, but now the duo face starting over afresh. After barely 15 months running the Raglan West store and its associated motels, the couple whose pies and pasties were dubbed by regulars as “world famous in Raglan” packed up and moved to a new home outside of town last Friday with “basically nothing” other than their possessions. The closure of their business on the Sunday of Queen’s Birthday Weekend – followed by a mid-week garage sale of shop, kitchen and accommodation contents – came after they had their lease terminated by landlord Tony Bruce in what he described as “a simple commercial matter”. The Browns, who moved up from Taranaki after Gail was made redundant from her officer manager job there, said they poured $132,000 into the business all up. But while with no lease to on-sell they’d now lost all their money, the couple were still hinting as locals helped them shift out on Friday that Raglan “may not have seen the last” of their good old-fashioned home cooking. Meanwhile the locked and rather forlorn-looking shop may soon be open again. Tony Bruce told the Chronicle early this week he was closing off a deal after having had “several parties ready and willing to take it on”. He played down the store closure, emphasising it was a simple commercial matter in which “nothing changes, only the operator and how it is operated”. Tony said the Browns did not renew the lease for a further term, and were advised through his solicitor of “the options availableartto Raglan them as tenants” before 7725 Roundabout C.pdf 1 4/06/13 being shut down.

Dave and Gail Brown in a near-empty Raglan West Store

The couple admitted to the Chronicle they’d overlooked a clause of the agreement which required a review in January of the conditions of their lease. Because of that, they said, they were put first on a month-to-month contract and then in May informed their lease would be terminated within the month. While Gail emphasised last Friday that “we didn’t want to go … it’s very sad”, the couple also conceded that in hindsight it was a mistake going into business in March last year with a slow winter just around the corner. Tony Bruce said he had reports there was “virtually no stock” in the store late last year. He said he could not reveal the nature of the new business – and whether Raglan West still had a local 3:35 PM dairy – until later this week. Edith Symes









Lane selection

Most roundabouts that have more than one lane in each direction are marked with lanes and arrows. The markings will tell you which lane to use. Not all roundabouts are marked in the same way so take extra care.

Signal use

Always indicate left before exiting.

Before entering a roundabout you must indicate if you’re going left or right (if you’re going straight ahead, don’t indicate). You must give way to all traffic that will cross your path from your right as you enter the roundabout. You then have to signal left as you pass the exit immediately before the one you intend taking. At multi-lane roundabouts, you have to approach and enter the roundabout in the correct lane according to your intended exit.

Whaanga scheme all go despite bureaucratic no It’s all cisterns go for the controversial Whaanga Coast wastewater scheme – but not before there was opposition from an unexpected quarter to the increasingly costly planned link-up with Raglan town’s sewerage system. While once Waikato District Council senior managers were trying desperately to get sufficient Whale Bay, Manu Bay and Upper Wainui Road property owners signed up to make the scheme a goer, in the latest chapter of the saga council staff were instead recommending the rejection of tenders for the work on financial grounds. And - in a remarkable u-turn - there was even concern from officialdom that the ambitious project might not stop sewage contaminating Whale Bay after all. But at a public-excluded full council meeting late last month, councillors over-rode the staff recommendation and voted 10-3 for a resolution that gives the multimillion-dollar project the nod. The resolution – put by Raglan ward councillor Clint Baddeley, who it is understood was instrumental in pushing things through in the face of mostly staff opposition – requires

some reading between the lines as it was released into open meeting without the relevant report which remains confidential. However it is obvious from the resolution’s wording that the cost of the scheme has ramped up from an early 2011 estimated cost of $2.1 million to now sit somewhere between $3.26 and $3.5 million. It’s also clear from the released wording that the connection charges for Whaanga Coast residents will be held as is despite the cost blowout, a point Councillor Baddeley saw as critical when he spoke to the Chronicle before a Raglan Community Board meeting on Tuesday of this week. Sixty-five out of a possible 110 Whaanga Coast properties have signed up so far, at a cost of almost $11,000 apiece, and Clint said the key now was getting the other 45 to also join up and so reduce the cost of the scheme to ratepayers across the Waikato district. The resolution specifies those 45 property owners can connect during the construction phase on the same terms as the 65 who’ve already signed up, but that whatever funding deficit remains will have to be absorbed Waikato-wide through the general rate. And that may not be small

Artist wins national small sculpture prize R a g l a n artist Stuart Bridson is this year’s recipient of the 2013 S m a l l Sculpture Stuart Bridson Prize. His work ‘Small Kitset No 1’ took out the $3,000 award announced recently at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery.

security, the transaction of art as a commodity. It has art historical lineage with artists like Duchamp, and perhaps most importantly, reconfigures discarded elements, giving them new value and in a modest way comments on the environmental impact we humans make on the earth.” The exhibition, which is sponsored by Davis Funerals, in conjunction with Obsidian Vineyard, was first initiated to in 2009 to complement Waiheke Island’s ‘headland sculpture on the gulf’ exhibition and proved so popular it’s now held annually. The $3000 Award this year attracted over 100 entries and the 35 works by 31 artists were selected for the finalists’ exhibition. Entries came from throughout New Zealand and included four by Waiheke artists.

The award for an original freestanding or wall sculpture up to 450mm in any dimension is the only national award exhibition for small sculpture held in New Zealand. In his address leading to the announcement of the award winner, selector Matt Ellwood, Senior Lecturer at Whitecliffe College of Art and Design said, “The potentiality of this piece is wonderful, a sculpture of a sculpture, or not a sculpture in itself, but a provocation to the viewer to engage with the elements and instructions within the box to construct the sculpture. The crate itself is exactly the maximum dimensions National Prize winner: allowed and references ‘Small Kitset No 1’ portability and

change, with the Waikato Times reporting a council source as saying ratepayers may have to stump up with $450,000-500,000 if some properties still did not join the scheme. It was pointed out at Tuesday’s community board meeting that rather than Whaanga Coast residents meeting 60 percent of the cost, as originally proposed, they could now end up footing only 49 per cent of it. The source quoted in the Times was also reported as saying proper investigations should have been carried out to confirm wastewater contamination detected in the Whaanga Coast area was caused by failing septic tanks. The Times cited a staff report – presumably the report which remains officially off-limits – as saying there was a “theoretical high level of public and environmental risk” from the Whaanga Coast having septic tanks as the primary method to treat wastewater. But the report warned that “what cannot be quantified is the level [by] which this risk will reduce, and the residual risk remaining with only a portion of the community in the area connecting to the system”.

The Beaudry boys followed by my lovely little house, I’d so wanna save the arch window. If money were no object what frivilous non essential would you buy for yourself?


A strawbale art studio and a skate bowl for my biggest boy. What four people dead or alive would you have to a dinner party? My brothers so we could all meet each others children at long last. Your ideal era? 60’s. Your best traveling experience? Pink flamingos in a blue sky in Morocco. Are you a dog or a cat person? Love both. Do you have recurring dreams? What about? I used to have a recurring dream about flying. I’d have to run really fast and then dive into the air. I fly with my arms out to the sides but no flapping, like wings just gliding through the air - like you are free falling. I have to focus my mind on flying or else I start drifting back down to land. Apparently we all fly differently. Where can we see your designs? Jet, Raglan Atamira, Raglan Left, Cambridge

KIDS CORNER - BONUS MONTH We have amazing giveaways this month for the early birds down at the Chronicle Office •

Ten packets of 15 broad bean seeds. These, when mature, are green and great cooked. Possibly one of the largest seeds you will sow. Attached is a plastic dial up seeder, useful for sowing very small seeds evenly in garden rows, eg carrots, onions, beetroot, parsnips, spinach, silver beet and flowers like sweet pea and lobelias. Lastly, the early birds will get one of eight 2 litre containers of worm pee concentrate. This needs to be diluted 10/1 when using. It is great for indoor and potted plants.

(c) The length of the name should be desirably not exceed 12-15 characters. The use of hyphens to connect parts of names should be avoided and the name written as one word or as separate words where established by usage. (d) Historical factors should be considered (with reference to the area or people involved – including Maori, early settlers, political, social or economic), as should natural features, outstanding events or persons. The proposed road names can be dropped off at the Raglan Office or in writing to the Raglan Community Board by the 31 July 2013 This notice is given pursuant to the Tenth Schedule of the Local Government Act 1974 G J Ion Chief Executive M20917
