isitors could be hit for a six – if not bowled over – when they see what former Black Cap Lou Vincent’s built in his Raglan yard. Levelled out on the heights of his Maungatawhiri Rd property is the new home ground of his aptly named Windy Ridge Cricket Club, a sports venue with a difference that’s all set to be launched next Friday, the 13th. The one-time bad boy of New Zealand cricket – who’s been living in Raglan about seven years now – clearly isn’t superstitious and nor is he one to dwell on the past. “Hey I’m staying and want to give locals an opportunity to do something a little different out of the water,” he announced on Raglan Notice Board a few months back. Now his new venue’s all set to go – with a pitch “as flat as a 1980s coke found in Grandpa’s shed” – after Lou got inspired during lockdown and embarked on

a bit of a building splurge through winter.

off posts to sit on at the batters end of the pitch.

The former star opening batsman who played for New Zealand in test, one-day international and Twenty20 forms of the game told the Chronicle he does some building around town anyway, like the fit-out of Isobar late last year.

A bowling machine spits out yellow balls which will help with the coaching, explains Lou, who’s intent on imparting the expertise he built up from 20-odd years as an international cricketer.

Then he got keen on the idea of building a backyard cricket/sports venue for people to use and enjoy, “hopefully without losing any teeth”. “I wanted to bring cricket to Raglan,” says the 42 year old, pointing out that the only time the game’s played locally has been the annual surfers-versus-farmers fixture at Te Mata. So with what he describes as the support of many organisations Lou got to work, bringing in a digger to level the area before sinking posts, creating his pitch and putting up nets. He’s even built the “corporate boxes”, he jokes, indicating some simple cut-

Thanks to the nets no balls will get lost or windows broken, he adds, and the pitch is good to go for the likes of baseball as well. He’s also built a TARDIS nearby as a novelty-value loo – ideal for moving between centuries – and has put in a pizza oven and a barbecue. Then there’s the clubhouse with a bar for social occasions, though not of the licensed variety, Lou adds. It features an attractive wall of wide-opening windows salvaged from an old TB sanatorium, and a hammock strung between two verandah posts. Lou’s cricket memorabilia spills out of the clubhouse and onto its verandah – hats and shirts he’s worn in teams around the world,

and all his bats since the age of four. Many are signed by cricket greats such as Don Bradman and Sachin Tendulkar. His most prized possession on display, however, is a framed Rolling Stones LP – the 1990s album Voodoo Lounge – complete with an inscription from frontman and cricket fan Mick Jagger. “I swapped a shirt for one of his vinyls,” Lou says proudly. Lou’s happy that, with the project all done, he can stay put in his adopted Raglan. “I don’t have to travel, I can build, teach, have fun … how good is that?” asks the self-confessed “blow in” (a bit of a Westie, most recently from Kaukapakapa). Windy Ridge Cricket Club will take a limited number of members, with Lou coaching one or two evenings a week during the season. He also plans to do private sessions, have school holiday programmes on the go and host corporate team-building events.


But the overriding focus is simply on having fun, he insists. An evening before the Chronicle’s visit, for instance, a handful of mates were out playing in torrential rain in their wetsuits. “We were just having a great laugh,” Lou reckons. “Only one black eye … that’s part of coaching … watch the ball!” On a more serious note Lou also wants to use his experience of the “dark world” of matchfixing – which he was dragged into some years ago – to help protect other young sports players from temptation. Another personal mission close to his heart is to help set up and finance a charity in this country for victims of parental alienation. “It needs to be seen as a form of child abuse and punishable as a criminal offence like in other countries”, says Lou, “especially given our high suicide rate”. *For Lou’s cricket website go to www.windyridge.nz.

TEN YE A RS ON - A ZERO WA STE JOUR NEY WITH PA R A KOR E by KARAMEA PURIRI

I

t’s been 10 years since Para Kore Marae Incorporated set out on it’s zero waste journey, one that started

as a call to action to end the current take, make and dispose mentality of human society. The zero waste initiative was inspired by conversations that started at Waikato Regional Council in 2008 around recycling on Marae. The result was a pilot programme which was first run under the umbrella of Xtreme Zero Waste and was implemented on three Marae including Poihakena here in Whāingaroa, Tūrangawaewae in Ngāruawāhia and Kirikiriroa the largest urban marae in Hamilton.

The success of the pilot programme led to Para Kore Marae Incorporated becoming an official entity in November 2010, leaving the umbrella of Xtreme Zero Waste and establishing itself as an independent organisation, specialising in waste education and minimisation, from a Māori worldview perspective based on whakapapa to Papatūānuku and tikanga Māori. With a kaupapa based on whakapapa to Papatūānuku and tikanga Māori, the Para Kore programme is zero waste

education delivered by a skilled team of regional kaiārahi. Since the original implementation on three Marae back in 2009, the programme has expanded to nearly 500 Marae and organisations, including work places, schools, kōhanga reo and events. Para Kore has gone from having a small team of Jacqui Forbes and Pine Campbell delivering here in the Waikato, to having 16 kaiārahi who live around the North Island and deliver the programme across 17 regions, as well as seven kaimahi who handle the National Office operations, a few based right here in Whāingaroa. While there have been many involved in the ongoing mahi, Para Kore has been guided by the drive and determination of Jacqui Forbes - who many locally might know from Xtreme Zero Waste or organising tamariki touch. Jacqui’s knowledge and understanding of waste has brought the work of Para Kore to the forefront of waste minimisation in Aotearoa. Not to mention being awarded the National Energy Globe Award in 2016. We caught up with Jacqui to find out more about what’s transpired for Para Kore, and what’s to come.about what’s transpired for Para Kore, and what’s to come.


INTERVIEW

W I T H J AC Q U I F O R B E S Kia ora Jacqui - Para Kore has surely taken off in the 10 years since its inception. What’s your favourite part of the Para Kore mahi? My favourite part which I don’t get to do very often is delivering the programme, so working one on one with a marae, an organisation or a company to help them reduce waste. There’s two parts to that, one is getting them to commit to high level policy or strategic goals in regards to reducing waste and procurement and the other is supporting the kaimahi to reduce waste wherever he or she is working. My mind designs systems wherever I go, I can’t help myself, it just happens unconsciously. How does the Programme work? Marae, organisations, kura, etc. are given a presentation firstly, and if they are interested they sign up. Our first visit involves discussing how things work currently, setting up equipment and signage, doing a waste audit and making a plan of what next. We also deliver workshops delivered from a Māori worldview perspective, and provide on-going mentoring and support. The goal of the programme is reducing volumes of waste over time until eventually, it’s all designed out, and zero waste is achieved. Para Kore is taught within the framework of kaupapa and tikanga Māori, how does this help to uplift communities? Teaching from the framework of te ao Māori brings to the forefront values of whakapapa and whanaungatanga which define our relationships with the natural world. The Earth is our mother and the sky is our father. We are related to mountains, to rocks, to insects, to birds, to the rivers and bush, to all parts of the natural world. They are our ancestors, our relations. We are the teina, the younger sibling, and we are part of nature. We identify with landforms and the place, and also with the spiritual realms. The relationship is reciprocal: you look after the land; the land looks after you. Reciprocity is a highly regarded value within te ao Māori. Para Kore education reminds us of our atua and that we are not the only species on the planet, we are part of a family. The current paradigm or worldview places profits at the forefront and doesn’t acknowledge our interconnectedness. The system here in Aotearoa is based on more than 180 years of colonisation and injustices against Māori and Papatūānuku, where we’ve destroyed

the habitat of other species and our environment in search of individual and corporate profit and goals. Returning to te ao Māori values and beliefs, reconnecting with nature, and with each other and becoming aware of the current unsustainable system of take and throwaway is a lot to take in, but it’s also uplifting and empowers communities to make better choices. Is recycling really a viable solution to combating the waste we are creating? No. Recycling is not an answer. We need to start with reduce, and then if that’s not viable go to reuse. Recycling uses massive amounts of energy, and creates pollution and more waste. Single use is not sustainable. Think about that buying anything that is designed to be recycled or thrown out is not a sustainable system. What’s next for Para Kore? Climate justice, social justice, intergenerational justice and wouldn’t some constitutional transformation be nice with that. What’s next for Para Kore is a focus on top of the cliff reduce and reuse solutions such as reusable menstrual products, cloth nappies, and local food production and food security. For Para Kore, success is local food security affordable to everybody. The dream is community orchards and food growing everywhere. Why would you buy nectarines from the supermarket which are hard and cold from refrigeration when you could have a nectarine with wrinkly skin that has been sweetened on a fruit tree in your backyard by Tamanui-te-rā (the sun)? Local food is sweeter and better than industrialised supermarket food which is created from carbon emitting fossil fuels. The dream is that we can regenerate to the extent that kai can be harvested sustainably again from local rivers, streams, the ocean, harbours and the bush. Today the inequity is such that reducing waste is sometimes the last consideration on the long list of struggling to survive priorities for many families. At Para Kore, we’re stubbornly optimistic and believe that this current reality is not set in stone. As we address inequity and injustice let’s dismantle this system we’re in which is designed to produce waste and instead create new realities which don’t have waste in the design. Kaua e hoki mā te waewae tutuki, ā, pā rānō he upoko pakaru.

aglan Falafel has grown organically from a community fundraiser into a regular little local favourite. The offerings are wholesome vegan Israeli-style falafel stuffed in a pita pocket with heaps of fresh vibrant salads, sauces and pickles. It’s the most popular street-food in Israel and is made authentically from scratch and served with love by Etai Gilad and Therese Hogan. It all started at the local markets as a fundraiser for Raglan Timebank. Once Etai served his falafels once or twice he soon acquired fans of all ages. After a year of donating his time Etai started his own business. Etai’s passion is seasonal food with a mix of colours and balance of flavours. In summer the menu expands to a Mediterranean feast including dolmades and moussaka. Raglan Falafel is served every Thursday 5pm – 8pm from the Old School Kitchen, and at the Old School Creative Market, Raglan Summer Eats and Tamahere Market in Hamilton.

igning to Benee’s new record label, touring with the pop star and releasing a new single Light Me Up are just a few of the recent highlights for local muso Muroki. The Chronicle first caught up with Muroki in July to talk about his single For Better or Worse, which featured on Benee’s playlist with when she appeared on Elton John’s podcast Rocket Hour. There was a lot he couldn’t say at the time, including who he was signing with but now the deal has been done he can let us in on a few of his guarded secrets, including jumping on board Benee’s label Olive and opening for her on a recent nationwide tour. The 19-year-old is Benee’s first signing and she told Billboard she listened to For Better or Worse nearly every day, praising his “smooth and soulful” vocals. “Muroki’s such a sweet and genuine guy, just the sort of artist I’d like to work with.” He’s just come off the whirlwind tour with Benee, who sold out gigs across the country ending with, in what’s said to be a world first, a

livestreamed show at Auckland’s Spark Arena. Playing to thousands of Benee fans was an opportunity for Muroki road-test his first release through Olive, Light Me Up. “It’s pretty surreal; I was tackled by four girls at the Christchurch gig and treated like a VIP in the clubs – I felt a bit like 50 Cent (American rapper),” he laughs. He was stoked to have his mates from his first band Cloak Bay play with him on the Benee tour. “I wasn’t nervous about playing, I knew we (the band) were so prepared and we sounded so tight. Nothing could really go wrong, unless I fell over on stage.” If touring with Benee and releasing his own single wasn’t enough, Muroki features alongside an impressive line-up of artists including Grimes, Lily Allen, and Flo Milli Kenny Beats and Bakar on Benee’s latest album Hey u x. “Her vocal range works really well on top of mine. Our voices go together really well,” he says. And while fame might be coming his way with the Benee tour,

10 | Raglan Chronicle Magazine Issue November 2020

fortune is still a way off; it’s the money that he made from a recent sell-out gig at the YOT Club, his first solo show, that’s helped keep him financially ticking along. There won’t be much of a break before the Summer touring season starts and Muroki has got festivals lined up with bands Cloak Bay, Masaya and playing solo. Although he’s able to burn the candle at both ends at the moment, Muroki admits there will come a time when one of his musical endeavours is going to take over. “While I’ve got the time, I will keep playing with everyone. It’s something I love to do.” When he does get some downtime, Muroki is always writing and composing music; he’s had a lot of help of late working with acclaimed Kiwi producer Djesian Suskov. “I’ve never written so many songs before. it used to take me so long (to write). We just jump on each other’s buzz,” he says. You’d be forgiven if you thought the fame might go to his head, but Muroki’s very grounded and humble.

He laughs about his friends ‘taking the piss’ about his celebrity status but they are right behind him, including helping shoot a promotional video for his tour merchandise. The video involved mate Lenny Stevens skateboarding down Stewart St with Muroki and friends following behind in a car shooting on a mobile phone. The artwork for the merch was designed by friend and local artist Ziggy Knuiman, and little sister Piri is the creative talent behind the artwork for his new single Light Me Up. Muroki started playing guitar as a nine-year-old under the tutelage of Cornerstone Roots guitarist Nicky Keys. He formed his first band Cloak Bay with Raglan friend Lenny Reynolds and high school buddies Jacob, Kelvin, Paulo and Tatava, releasing their first EP Digitown and the Boogie Boys in 2017. Muroki also plays bass with indie/roots/soul band Masaya who formed in the summer of 2019 with brother and sister Reiki Ruawai on guitar/vocals, Kaea Ruawai on drums and Jules on lead guitar.

ocal singer-songwriter Teia Kennedy is about to take the next step in advancing her music careers thanks to this year’s National Waiata Māori Music Awards. The Emerging Artist Award– Te Tohu Kaipūoru Rangatahi Hou, recognises artists who have promising music careers, working in the Māori music industry. The award affords them a chance to work alongside some of the Waiata Māori Music Awards ambassadors, to learn and further their skills in all areas of music. Teia has been taking her solo acoustic sound to live shows all over New Zealand and internationally as well. The 23-year-old musician, has a sound which combines rich tones, soulful lyrics, original styling and a pure energy.

She currently works in Auckland as a music teacher but recently came back to Raglan to judge the Whaingaroa Talent Factory at the Raglan Town Hall. Tell us about the Emerging Artist Award - Te Tohu Kaipūoru Rangatahi Hou, and what it means to you and for your career? The award acknowledges up and coming young Māori musicians. I’ve been nominated in the rangatahi category previously so it’s really awesome to be acknowledged, especially as I haven’t really been able to do many live performances since last year. The timing of this award was perfect as I was sitting on the fence about my music future but this is the confidence boost I needed. Covid-19 has really impacted music opportunities in an already tight industry and I really wasn’t sure if I could match up to the other talent out there as I don’t have a manager or a team behind

me to help. With a few gig and event opportunities now set for summer I’m really hoping to make the most of whatever opportunities and networks this award brings as I really do love creating and sharing my music. Describe your style of music, has it changed over the years – how and why? I’d describe myself as an acoustic singer/songwriter, I don’t have a set style or genre but I definitely incorporate both classic and contemporary styles into my music. I guess you could say I have old school styles with modern twists. My music has definitely evolved over the years. I’ve been writing songs since I was 14 so a decade of living, studying, travelling, meeting people, life experiences and adventures has moved my music from then to now. I think my music is maturing along with me and my confidence as a performer, writer and just in myself has grown. Growing up in Wairoa, studying in Auckland and now living in Raglan has all been part of my music journey and I can’t wait to see what is next. I’d also say that gaining my Musical Arts degree really helped to fill the gaps as far as technical skills and knowledge for the music industry are concerned. Describe your songwriting process? I start thinking about things randomly and then if I think it would make a good song, I start putting lyrics together and maybe singing them through. Then I’ll start playing around with different chords on the guitar and making vocal melodies for the lyrics ideas that I’ve written down. What/who are your biggest musical influences? Top of my list is AC/DC. Then I’d go with John Mayer and Norah Jones. From an NZ perspective it would be Teeks.

Who are you listening to at the moment on repeat? Bruno Major. He’s a British singer/songwriter. I love the way he blends different styles into his music. He has a really clean writing style that I’m inspired by. Tell us about your current music projects? This year I’ve written about 10 songs, mostly during lockdown. Nine are complete so I’d love to have the opportunity to perform them and ultimately record them (hence my ongoing hope for some management support). I’m currently teaching music at a Music Academy in Auckland and have a few summer gigs booked so I feel really fortunate to work in the industry I love. What are your future plans? I released my debut EP ‘Stranger Tides’ in 2018 and I loved the process, and touring with it around NZ and Tokyo, so following that up with a second EP would be my ultimate goal. I know I need to do a lot of groundwork to build networks, get financial backing, resources and a team to make it all fall into place but I’d love to get back in the recording studio and have my music in a ‘ready to play’ format. It’s a really long and hard process but so worthwhile. You are a mentor/judge for the WTF in Raglan – tell us about the upcoming talent in Whaingaroa? I was blown away by the talented youth here in Whaingaroa. Every act that performed on the night brought a unique charisma to the stage. Their ability to engage and interact with an audience was amazing and I loved their confidence to share original material. I hope that other youth in the community were inspired by their pairs to be creative through music and that WTF is a reoccurring event for the rangatahi of whaingaroa.

A NEW A PPROACH TO HOUSING What is affordable housing and what does a community-based approach look like?

W

ith the election now over and a global pandemic still ruling the news cycle, housing, and particularly housing affordability, didn’t appear to get much attention in this year’s political campaigns. Reading headlines about the property market from around the country, however, indicates a housing market that is hotter than ever and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. As the country braces to go into a recession, house prices remain as high as ever so what does that mean for the future of housing in New Zealand? The current housing market, as it is, makes housing unaffordable for a large number of people living in New Zealand. Raglan has seen localized effects of this market, which has presented itself through issues like rental shortages and high house prices, these issues have perhaps been exacerbated due to the limits of space that we have in our community as well as the tourist market that our town accommodates for. Housing is a huge issue for a small community like Raglan as the issue can have many flow on effects in terms of maintaining the special identity of Whaingaroa-Raglan as well as issues around sustainability and protecting the most vulnerable members of the community. Whaingaroa-Raglan Affordable Housing Project (WRAP) recognised this housing issue in our community and over the past few years they have been working diligently to start conversations and partner with similar organisations to create communityled, affordable housing opportunities for Whaingaroa-Raglan. WRAP has aligned with the Waikato Regional Housing Initiative to work on the vision that all who live in Whaingaroa-Raglan area are well housed with ‘well-housed’ meaning: timely access to habitable, affordable, accessible, culturally appropriate, appropriately located, and with security of tenure housing. The government, along with other national and international organisations like the World Health Organisation (WHO), define housing to be affordable if a family spends no more than 30% of their gross household income to live there. In 2018, WRAP conducted research in to housing in Raglan and conducted the Raglan Community Housing Survey; some of the major findings based on the information gathered were: • Raglan’s population is rising (17% rise from 2013-2017) • Of the total dwellings in Raglan (1834) • 61% are locally owned • 39% are non-locally owned • 28% are holiday homes • Between 2016-2018 there was a 25-30% loss of rental housing stock

• Between 2016-2018 there was a 30% rise in average rent • 29% of householder survey respondents who rent stated they were stressed about their situation • Median house prices have nearly doubled in last 5 years Based on this research, WRAP have held two Affordable Housing Forums to discuss ideas and new approaches to address how the housing issue could be addressed as a community. Key trends and ideas that emerged from the 2019 housing forum Conversations about Housing include: • Don’t just build houses, build multigenerational neighbourhoods • Design affordability for those on the lowest + supported incomes upwards • Favour the concept of a Raglan Community Lands Trust to acquire and keep land in community ownership • Building smaller is essential to lowering cost of development • Design buildings for universal access to remove any ability bias • Favour best practice building materials, and designs that support energy + resource conservation • Increase density of dwellings to reserve open spaces for shared gardens + buildings • Save space in dwellings by providing shared visitor ‘spare room’ space • Confine cars to the perimeter and promote e-cars/bikes and sharing of vehicles • Promote success of neighbourhood by setting values and expectations with occupants as part of purchase or rental contract • Consult extensively with wider Raglan community to gain insight and support of project • Development is needed immediately, all efforts must be to make this happen asap • Projects will need support and advocacy at local, regional and central levels to succeed • Housing should have a strong presence within the Raglan Naturally community plan Fiona McNabb, Project Lead for WRAP says that a community-based affordable housing approach will take a completely new perspective in terms of pathways to providing access to affordable housing. As an example, a community lands trust has been set up where philanthropists and investors could partner with WRAP to provide a property development model that could accommodate things like different tenure models and multigenerational, multi-tenure housing opportunities. With much of their research now completed, Fiona also says

12 | Raglan Chronicle Magazine Issue November 2020

that WRAP is one of 35 community projects that sits under the Waikato Regional Housing Initiative in the Waikato Plan which brings together multiple government organisations to form a Leadership Committee, comprised of local government representatives, tangata whenua, independent non-local government members (representing business and the community) and government agencies. WRAP is a great example of a community-led approach to addressing a local issue – housing – and advocating for the issue at local, regional and government levels. Earlier this year, Fiona was chosen to sit on the Waikato Regional Housing Initiative Leadership Group as a representative of Raglan and other small communities which means that through this group, there are pathways for funding and direct lobbying of support from central Government for local projects. Along with this position, Fiona also represents small communities in Waikato as a trustee on the Waikato Community Lands Trust. This Trust will be used as the mechanism to secure land and community ownership, with the aim to create a land bank to be used for affordable housing projects. With a local representative, sitting on these groups and having relationships with key funders like Momentum, Impact and DV Bryant Trust there is a huge opportunity for WRAP to be one of the community initiatives that receives support. Locally in Raglan, the Raglan Naturally Community Trust has recently been set up. This trust is another avenue where WRAP has been supported as a priority project and can receive funds for affordable housing initiatives. The WRAP team’s hard work over the past few years puts them in a position where they now have the ability to have a legal and financial structure to receive land and funds and are looking for potential affordable housing projects where they can partner with private land and property owners, investors and philanthropists. These projects could be things like redevelopment of existing land property, joint venture or purchase and build models. Excited about the potential of these affordable housing projects becoming a reality, Fiona and the WRAP team are interested to hear from land owners, investors and philanthropists that would be interested in having discussions about creating affordable housing opportunities in our community. “If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together” African prover If you are a land owner, investor or philanthropist and you would like to discuss how you could partner with the Whaingaroa Raglan Affordable Housing Project, email fiona@solotec.co.nz

am passionate about natural dyes, cultivating and coaxing colour from nature onto fabric and fibres.

Natural colouring is not a new technique, it is an ancient artform, however it has been overshadowed by the ease of synthetic dyes. Advocating slow, local, sustainable fashion is at the core of my brand. Growing and harvesting flowers & plants, extracting the colours onto fabrics and fibres, then sewing it into wearable art garments is what I love to do. I run workshops for anyone wanting to learn the art of natural dyeing and have recently launched a DIY natural colouring kit where people can learn to colour with nature in their own homes. I also create one off, made to order, garments which showcase the silks that I colour and adore. I : @harvestingcolournz E : cheri_milek89@hotmail.com

THE THR EEPENNY OPER A I N T E RV I E W W I T H S A S C H A K I R K W O O D

Y E A R 1 3 D R A M A S T U D E N T AT R A G L A N A R E A S C H O O L Describe The Threepenny Opera Bertolt Brecht’s ‘The Threepenny Opera’ showcases the story of the notorious criminal ‘Mack the Knife’ in a corrupted, Victorian England where evil goes unpunished. Brecht’s Epic Theatre style challenges the audience to reflect on their own lives and leave the theatre feeling the need to do something to improve society. Who was involved and who directed you? Our cast was our Senior Drama class which includes myself, Connor Marquand, Leila-Rose Skeates, Taliah Edgecombe-Pearse, Jade Jansen van Vuuren, Griffin Pohutakawa and Cassidy Hanna. The whole production was directed and produced by our wonderful teacher Ruth Hare. What was your role ? How did you feel about your performance? I played the role of Macheath (Mack the Knife) and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of it. I initially found it difficult to play such a dominant male role, but found joy in creating my own version of the character during the rehearsal process. I particularly loved singing the songs that were added to the production such as ‘Bella Ciao’ and ‘Cell Block Tango’. Given you are year 13 Do you have plans to continue with theatre beyond a school environment? My true passion is performing, and I have a dream of pursuing it as a career in the future. My goal for 2021 is to write more original music, perform in as many shows as possible and take any and every opportunity I can to get up on stage!

Sale of lifestyle property to benefit local conservation project A

local real estate agent has come up with a novel way to bolster one community organisation’s quest to bring seabirds flocking back to Raglan and the turning of the tide on biodiversity loss and helping to re-wild our corner of the world.

In just 10 years we have seen · 10,635 predators removed · 85kms of trap lines and 2,048 traps checked fortnightly by volunteers · 300+ volunteers clocking up 27,740 of volunteer hours · 174 local households do predator control on their own property as part of our Backyard trapping program · 14 Oi chicks successfully fledge in the past two years – and fingers crossed another 7 take off at Christmas! · Three successful environmental education programs enjoyed by 512 local students and their families (Karioi Kids, Karioi Rangers, Manaaki Ao) · 17 people employed part-time by the Karioi Project in biodiversity and education work “Mark is an amazing advocate for the Karioi Project, volunteering on a traplines, sponsoring regular volunteer get togethers and attending beach-clean ups,” van Houte says. “We are so grateful to Mark for his generous offer.”

Bayley’s agent Mark Frost says he will donate $10,000 from the sale of a contemporary home on Maungatawhiri Rd to the Karioi Project; a conservation project driven by a vision to make Karioi a sea and forest bird sanctuary. Established in 2009, the group has undertaken predator control on more than 2,300 hectares of private and public land, trained hundreds of volunteers, established a seabird monitoring programme and held beach cleanups. Their efforts have also seen the return of Little Blue penguins waddling down the beach and Oi or Grey Faced Petrels, burrowing along the coast. Project manager Kristel van Houte says the significant donation will go towards salaries for the rangers that they employ to work on the mountain which is vitally important to organisations key strategies.

The plentiful 6260sqm (more or less) lifestyle section is fully fenced, has established gardens and tons of room to grow fruit trees and graze animals so you can provide healthy living options for the family dinner table or explore development options with the land.

Mark says he sees the donation of his commission is a way to champion a cause he is passionate about, and give back to the amazing local community and environment we are lucky to be guardians of at this time.

Check open home times or call Mark for a viewing. 022 150 2244.

The amazing owners of 233 Maungatawhiri Rd, were super keen in being part of this project to raise funds for the Karioi Project and new owners will be able to look out at the maunga, and know that they’ve helped sea and forest birds create new lives on Karioi.” Mark Frost says the modern contempory home has relaxing rural views from every aspect including the expansive wrap around deck which flows from the large open plan living areas and the bedrooms. Upon arrival you are greeted with a covered car park entranceway which is handy for those rainy and hot summer days. Once inside from the spacious entrance you can turn left and be in the expansive and high stud living areas which comprise of an open plan kitchen, dining and large living area which flows nicely to the wrap around deck.

t might be more of a challenge mounting a big sports event in the wake of the Covid lockdown but Raglan Karioi Trail organiser Francois Mazet insists he’s “always optimistic”. “I organise it because I love running on our maunga and I want to share that with everyone who’s keen to participate,” he told the Chronicle.

And if this Raglan-domiciled Frenchman does get a bit overwhelmed at times, no worries. He simply dons his running shoes, scales Mt Karioi then comes back home “pumped”. The eighth annual running of the iconic mountain trail event is now just over five weeks away. As usual Swanny’s Ruapuke farm at the foot of Mt Karioi will be race headquarters, and the “whole family” catered for with 24km, 10km and 5km runs.

The 24km race “necessitates some training” and is definitely one of the most challenging mountain runs in the country, Francois admits. It traverses the 756 metre-high Mt Karioi twice, with a total elevation gain of 1850 metres. While the event attracts athletes from all over New Zealand – and usually from overseas too – there’s also “a good crew of locals” taking part each year, he adds. Francois’ aim is to provide participants with an unforgettable experience. “That is why the tracks will be ready, the water will be at the top of the ridge and the sausages will be on the barbecue when people cross the finish line where spot prizes will be awarded.” He prides himself on the event’s village atmosphere which is achieved, he says, by limiting the number of competitors to 400 and ensuring it’s a fun day for everyone. He’s hopeful the current alert level 1 – which requires social distancing, good hygiene procedures and QR code sign-in – will remain, but has strategies like staggered starts all set to go if level 2 restrictions are introduced meantime. In a worst-case scenario (alert level 3) the Raglan Karioi Trail will be

cancelled, he says, and all registrations fully refunded less the $10 admin fee. “I definitely don’t want to penalise participants if coronavirus hits us again.” Francois adds that since the March/ April lockdown lots of running events have been rescheduled to November and December, with participants now having to choose which one they enter. “For small, independent event organisers this is a hard time as we are not guaranteed to be able to cover all our costs.” For sure the current risks and uncertainty have made the job that much harder this year, Francois concedes, but he points out Karioi Classic organisers Dirk De Ruysscher and Lisa Thomson have also had more stress than usual with the cycle race postponed from July to September. “Luckily there’s fantastic support from the community, the registrations for RKT 2020 are going well and sponsors remain supportive,” Francois says.

*Raglan Karioi Trail takes place on Saturday December 12 from 8am. Registrations are open until an hour before the start of each race.

Food Waste Collection Update from Xtreme Zero Waste

LIBRARY

Last year in June, our Waikato District Council opted out of supporting the food waste collection service to continue. We asked for your support and the community delivered.Thanks to everyone for their sharing and donations to our Givealittle campaign. We want to acknowledge the Whaingaroa community and significant donors for paying for this past year alongside us at Xtreme Zero Waste. Thank you, so truly awesome! Fastforward to July 2020 and our Waikato District Council still didn't want to enter into negotiations with us. XZW has been tightening things up so we could self fund this service, it's just too important to lose, but it has been a challenge for us at around $10,000 per month going from other areas. Thanks to compost sales, and other XZW activities making sacrifices, we could keep food waste out of landfill and keep this important service going. Through the amazing work of our Office Team, we have secured some support from Trust Waikato (Thank you!) to pay for the service from now until July 2021. Trust Waikato has provided this as an impact grant as they realise the significance of reducing waste and emissions and the model Raglan Community is providing. On a national scale we were leading into this space of food waste collection and are proud to see so many regions and cities turning their attention to this important waste stream. If you work over the divvy or have whanau in Hamilton City you might have already seen their services. While many other councils and cities roll out food waste collection programmes, and we welcome visitors to come and learn about what we've been doing here, unfortunately Waikato District Council have once again cleared food waste conversations off the table. There will be a further opportunity through the District Waste Management and Minimisation Plan that is currently being reviewed. Review of the Plan will be a further opportunity for our community to have their say. So for now we want to celebrate and thank you for your support over the past year, for the food waste campaign, and supporting all of Xtreme's activities of reducing, reusing and recycling. As of July 2021 we have no more funding. Xtreme can't continue at this point to fund the food waste collection. We have done our best, and we are so grateful for the support. Thank you Raglan! If you want to raise this issue with Council please be aware that our Councilor, Lisa Thompson, has been very supportive and that the decision has been made further up the food chain. Kia ora for your support Raglan ~ From all of the team at Xtreme Zero Waste

Thanks to local EnviroMatters sponsors:

Change to Alcohol Licence Public Notification Process

Raglan Independent Courier

We are making it simpler and more cost-effective for alcohol licence applicants to notify the public. When an application is made for a new licence or renewal of a licence the public notice will no longer be required to be published in the newspaper. The applicant will complete a template that is contained in the application/renewal form and will return it to Council. From Monday 2 November 2020 these notices will be published on Council’s website (waikatodistrict.govt.nz). There will be an administrative fee to the applicant for this, from 1 July 2021.
