In relation to the departure times of the off-peak morning services – these were changed so out of town travellers had the opportunity to take an earlier bus, freeing up space on the peak afternoon/evening services for our regular commuters. Finally, we have responded to feedback and have been working with the bus operator on the issue of ‘grab loops’. These are expected to be installed within the next couple of weeks.

To the Editor, Thank you twice. First, about two or three weeks ago, I thought I had lost my purse containing Eftpos card. I got help and advice from a lovely lady at the bank and two lovely checkout ladies at Raglan SuperValue who gave me confidence as well. I went home and found my purse, after all this, in a zipup pocket, relief. Second, I left my purse, same purse, either on the seat at SuperValue or inside. While I was walking home, I remembered purse and started to go back, when a couple in a little blue car stopped right beside me with my purse. How grateful and relieved I felt all that day, so a big thank-you to all for being helpful and kind. D Kingsworth, Raglan

Wharf couple into new building boots and all


Close to home: Rob Galloway and Marie de Jong, from the kitchen of their silo apartment, go over plans for their premises in the new wharf building. The right roller door in the background will eventually be replaced by glass and serve as a second entrance to their artisan workshop.

They’ve put their heart and soul into various projects at Raglan wharf over the years, and now local couple Rob Galloway and Marie de Jong are stepping into a new venture there with a leather goods workshop-cum-retail outlet in the new $1.9 million wharf building. In November their long-lived leather business Soul Shoes will abandon its Bow Street site and reopen in two interconnected shops occupying a prime corner of the wharf building – premises whose rents, Rob says, are now “comparable” to those in the town centre. Rob and Marie live at the wharf in the historic cement silos, barely a stone’s throw from where their business will soon be relocated. They made leather shoes from the ground floor of the silos for several years but then built for themselves a stylish firstfloor apartment in the taller of the two towers. They’ve also created three luxury holiday-let apartments within the silos complex. Topping off their wharf involvement Rob’s built two oceangoing yachts there, the latest a 50-footer sitting directly beneath their apartment as it awaits launching. But right now it’s sale time at Soul Shoes in Bow Street where all surplus stock has to go, leaving just the handcrafted leather goods that have given the business its name. “We’ll be concentrating on what we make ourselves,” Rob explains of their new industrial-style workshop at the wharf. Retail-wise, that will include however the latest works of Rob’s sister Jane Galloway – a highly regarded Raglan artist whose paintings often feature in the Bow Street shop window

– and son Ben’s Trash Footwear products made from recycled materials. Wahinemoe cruise boat operator Charlie Young has also been talking to Rob, and says he’s likely too to have a sales presence in the shop. Rob started out making shoes back in the ‘70s in Whangamata, then moved to Hamilton and – 30 years ago – on to Raglan where leather accessories were added to the name.“We’re probably one of the longest-surviving businesses in Raglan,” he reflects. The couple figure they can do quite well at the wharf – even without the advantage of having two frontages in the busy southeastern corner of the building – because the business has become a destination in itself and is no longer so reliant on passing traffic. “And a lot of selling is through the website,” Rob adds. They first thought of shifting shop a couple of years ago when the rebuild was being talked about after the disastrous wharf fire, but admit they’ve only got around to negotiating the tenancy of the two premises in the past few weeks. And it’s been a “pretty easy” process, says Rob, with Waikato District Council ready to negotiate as reported in last week’s Chronicle. “We’ve found the council very helpful and keen to rent spaces,” he confirmed. They’re looking forward now to the possibility of an artisan studio gallery and indoor market taking up one other tenancy available, and hope a retail workshop like their own or that of nearby Tony Sly Pottery might eventually occupy the last two of the seven spaces up for rent. Developing an “arty” kind of community down there, say the pair, would be good for business and bring back the wharf’s buzz. Edith Symes

Local filmmakers honoured in Red Carpet ceremony

Saturday night’s Red Carpet gala evening was a fitting celebration to conclude Raglan’s 10 day Film Festival.

Guests and celebrities enjoyed a festive evening held at the Old School Arts Centre. The spotlight was on Whaingaroa’s own filmmakers in a night to get together and celebrate local talent. A delicious buffet dinner provided by the Raglan soccer mums preceded a screening of the short films and highlights of the nominated features which thoroughly engaged all those present. The awards ceremony itself was a real showcase of the talent in our own creative community. The recipients will cherish their striking RAFFA awards. Designed and created by local steel artists Phil and Emily Meek, an ‘old school’ movie reel is captured in the unique design of this year’s award. The fourth annual Red Carpet ceremony was organised by the Raglan Community Arts Council. Many local people volunteered their expertise to make this event a great success. Ruth Port’s leadership skills as MC for the Awards Ceremony guided all guests through an evening to remember. Rodger Gallagher, Jacqueline Anderson and Aaron Mooar devoted much time to planning and organising the whole ten day programme. Aaron also contributed his skills as a projectionist and was the voice of the festival on Raglan Radio. Susan Guenther was the photographer as the guests walked the red carpet. Thanks go to the Raglan soccer mums for the excellent catering and to Vicky Crosby for serving refreshments.

2012 RAFFA winners Valued sponsors of the Film Festival include Creative Communities Waikato District, V48Hours Furious Filmmaking Competition, Flux Animation Studios, the Raglan Club and the Raglan Operational Support Unit. And of course, a huge thank you goes to Whaingaroa’s stars and film makers. OSAC

the essence of relaxation

Dr Oliver Russell Dr Gill Brady Dr Marcia Mitchley 10 Bankart Street, Raglan

Fulltime radio station boss emerges from under radar He worked in the building industry on and off for 15 years but now Aaron Mooar has found his true station in life – Raglan Community Radio.

“The Morning Show’s dedicated to the community … but it had kind of drifted away a bit,” he says. “Now it’s in a process of renewal and we have come up with something better in terms of services to the community.”

The 41-year-old is the station’s first paid employee and for the past few weeks has been juggling his 30 hours a week between his handson Morning Show every weekday, dealing with technical issues and generally managing a station that’s an incorporated society and depends heavily on grants to stay on air.

The “we”, he stresses, is the Raglan Community Radio committee which has spent a busy couple of years surveying opinion and then strategizing, reviewing and brainstorming before writing policies and the likes of job descriptions.

a grand entranceway with the town hall itself and with Waikato Environment Centre. It’s important to have a “shop front”, he adds.

“It was very political, alternative, underground news,” Aaron explains. “It was the sort of show people either loved or hated.”

“Only Xtreme Waste had a twohour show,” he says. “Now people can just come in and be interviewed. I interviewed Xtreme Waste this morning (Monday) and will do community groups like the arts council regularly, and I alternate each week between Clint Baddeley and Rodger Gallagher, catching up on projects and issues.”

“People are coming and going all the time,” he points out, with the local kindy crew for example in and out of the town hall last Monday morning after their successful silent auction at the weekend. And Aaron was able to use their positive feedback as an item on his daily news bulletin. Aaron hopes the station’s audience will grow and “that lots tune into the Morning Show, especially since the survey showed people were really hungry for local info”. But he concedes the station “still feels fairly fragile” without the sort of core funding WEC or the arts council, for instance, are able to get. He says Raglan Community Radio has always got some funding from groups such as Wel Energy Trust and Trust Waikato, and does get small grants for equipment, “but we need regular funding in place and we need to increase income from advertising”.

He agrees he’s still “into” it all but emphasises that’s not what his new paid job and the revamped Morning Show are all about.

Aaron loves the community inter-reaction that the small studio at the town hall entrance encourages, particularly as it shares

However he adds that funding from the Lotteries Commission is now emerging as a “definite possibility”.

Not that any of this is particularly new to Aaron – he’s been involved with Raglan Community Radio for around nine years now. But the focus now is a little different for a person who concedes he’s not what you’d call mainstream and is perhaps best remembered for his polarising ‘Under the Radar’ show.

Aaron says the new-format Morning Show is the result of the committee’s realisation that most people or community groups simply didn’t have the time to do a show for an hour or two.

Station in life: Raglan Community Radio station manager Aaron Mooar midway through his Monday morning slot this week at the station’s town hall studio Aaron recalls Raglan Community Radio did a lot of fundraising three or four years ago so it could set up a new transmitter on the hill behind Xtreme Waste off Te Hutewai Road. That gave better coverage but also meant a change in broadcasting frequency, from 96.6 to 98.1. “Of course it’s hard with the hollow here (in Raglan) to get into every home which is the reason the station started in the first place,” he says. “People here couldn’t pick up Hamilton stations.”

He says he’d “much rather do this (radio work) and live on a pittance” than work in architecture for which he’s trained, earning say $100,000 a year. For him and his family, it’s all about lifestyle and getting involved in “an awesome community”. Edith Symes

Aaron’s lived here since 2000 and used to commute over the hill but

Food tech at Waitetuna School inspires plan for own restaurant One main, one dessert and a bottled drink are on the menu for Waitetuna School students –all 58 of them from five-year-olds to teens – who will finish the term’s schooling this week with a special tour, and lunch, at Wintec’s training restaurant on campus in Avalon Drive. They’ve made their orders, says deputy principal Margery O’Connell, and will get “proper service” at Windows on Avalon which is run by the centre for hospitality and regularly turns out a cafe-style menu for the general public. And at the end of next term, adds Margery, the kids will replicate their experience by running a restaurant of their own for the locals. It’s an ambitious plan but one that doesn’t seem to faze the school which for the third term has embraced the traditional Maori concept of tuakana teina or, roughly translated, the buddy system of learning. Marge explains how the small five-teacher school just 15 minutes from Raglan has used for a few years now this learning model for reading and for sports, with seniors “taking ownership” and teaching the younger children their skills. For the seniors, says Marge, it means a bigger role of leadership and for the juniors it’s about “respecting that leadership”.

“like everyone I wanted to work in Raglan”.

Students from Waitetuna School are involved in learning how to cook But the concept was extended recently to include the school’s main topic or core focus of teaching which for the third term of the year looked at changes in technology – and it was food tech, she says, that really took off. “We thought it (the buddy system) would be good but not that good!” Marge told the Chronicle. The whole school has been involved in learning how to cook, which has also included setting up their own vegetable

garden. From that focus has come learning around healthy diets and costing. Now with the idea of opening up the school’s multipurpose room as a restaurant next term have come further lessons in logo design, menu planning and the understanding of profit and loss. With groups of five children of mixed age rotating 12 tasks daily “every day was so interesting”, says Marge, and the teachers’ role became more that of facilitating rather

than lecturing. Placemats still need to be designed and laminated, waiters and waitresses trained up and the vegetables need time to grow. Meanwhile a name for Waitetuna’s first restaurant is to be decided – with The Slippery Eel a distinct possibility at this stage, hints Marge – and the best of the logos selected to turn that extra classroom into something even classier.

Animal Health Column Workshop redefining ‘movement’ For Raglan People + their Pets

Looking for new blood donors The Team here at Raglan Anexa Vet Clinic would love to hear from you if you have a dog that may fit our criteria for blood donors. We can sometimes have up to two blood donors needed in a week and have exhausted all our own resources using our own dogs… who only have so much to give. As much as we appreciate you putting your fury friend forward there are some things to consider first. Each blood donor needs to be sedated (and occasionally a general anesthetic depending on the temperament of your dog). Just like humans – all sedatives & anesthetics, have a degree of risk. You just need to be aware of these, but in young healthy animals the risks are minimal and we VERY rarely have complications with sedations/anesthetics. We need dogs between the ages of 2 – 7 years old, over 25kgs in weight & have no pre existing health conditions. To collect blood we will need to shave an area on their foreleg to administer the sedative and also shave an area on their neck to take blood from the jugular. In the scheme of things, these procedures are very straight forward and once it is all over your fury friend will have no recollection of such heroic behaviors, just excited about the fact that they have a cozy warm bed & treats. To add to Lynn’s comments about money & resources – this is in regards to a universal donor, which Lynns dog will need if she was to ever require another blood transfusion. Once a dog has had one blood transfusion – they cannot Don’t Feed Your Pet Junk Food! have a second transfusion without cross matching donated Not all foods are created equal so make sure your pet gets the best diet possible! blood which need enough to bethe the same blood type as As vets we cannotwill emphasise importance of good nutrition fortheir your pet, toDogs ensure can good health.

While the word ‘dancer’ may conjure particular images of petite and limber ballerinas, New Zealand’s only integrated professional dance company is all about turning stereotypes on their heads – changing perceptions about what it means to dance and who can dance.

didn’t delve into any aerial wheelchair techniques. However three dancers from the company performed an excerpt from a work called ‘Run.’ Described as a work that explores ‘escaping the past whilst fearing moving towards the future,’ the expressive choreography coupled with sharp movements and floor work created a tense atmosphere that sharpened all the senses. With around 20 people in attendance both young and old, the dancers from Touch Compass then took the participants through some of the movements used in their repertoire. “It’s about giving people a movement and then going ‘here, now make it your own,’ and empowering the dancers,” said Melanie. While there were lots of fun and laughs to be had on the night learning new movements and considering what we define as ‘dance,’ Touch Compass, now in their 15th year of operating, clearly had a vision of facilitating changes in perceptions. Maki Nishiyama

Performers at Touch Compass include dancers with disabilities as well as those without and they’ve received national and international acclaim for their groundbreaking performances. Last Wednesday night at the Town Hall, a group of Raglanites were treated to a special dance workshop with the company. “Being integrated means everyone’s included regardless of form or function, race or colour, Touch Compass is all about what you can do rather than what you can’t.” said Melanie Turner, dance educator at the company. Running a series of research workshops in and around the Waikato area the company chose to visit Raglan through a link with Patti Mitcheley, performing artist and founder of local performance group Whingaroa Youth Movement. The night kicked off with an introduction by local creative and one-legged Wahinemoe skipper Tim Turner, previously a dancer at the company, who said, “ There are no limits to what you can and can’t do.” And Touch Compass are definitely a company that pushes past any limiting beliefs, opening a new aerial capable, wheelchair accessible dance studio in Sandringham earlier this year.

Letters: To the Editor, Raglan Rates Rise Up To 14%. Raglan rate payers are grossly disadvantaged and are now targeted to pay a much higher rate than the other wards. Raglan is the first of the three towns to have water meters installed which will result in a huge increase in our rates. The Raglan airfield is also an issue. Raglan rate payers are forced to subsidize the ‘well-heeled’ to have very cheap access to the many pleasurable activities available in Raglan. Some planes continue to circle and make use of the field purely to practice their skills but contributing only negatively with constant noise and air pollution. We subsidize them to do this! The WDC failed to heed the Community Board’s request that landing fees be raised from $5 to $10 (which still would not have covered the maintenance of the airfield ) and fees went up by 50 cents only. We are forced to contribute towards easing the steep rise in Franklin’s rates as before their amalgamation with WDC their rates were much lower. We are charged $18 to support Lake Taupo. Community Board fees: starting this year local rate payers will each be targeted to pay $18, in spite of the Community Board’s knowledgeable advice being ignored resulting in hundreds of thousands being wasted. Remember the furore over Variation 15? The velodrome: Contrary to the democratic process we are forced to pay for 20 years to an unessential facility giving little benefit to Raglan. Because of the millions of dollars spent by the WDC to attract tourists to our area our local facilities have had to be upgraded, some targeted to our cost. Valuations have risen steeply causing some people to leave the area and putting undue strain on many more. Who is helping to support Raglan? The country area has no targeted rates and according to a WDC graph pay 3% of their income in rates whereas Raglan pays over 7% of theirs. Yet 46% of our rates were allocated to roading which benefitted the country areas most. Enid Sincock, Raglan To the Editor, Thank you, Jim Munns and Rio Iti for teaching fencing skills to my agriculture classes this year. Earlier in 2012, Jim and Rio gave up their time free of charge, to build a 200 meter 8 wire fence for Caroline Swann opposite Ruapuke beach. Level 2 credits were gained and the students enjoyed a different pace of life at Ruapuke without cell phone reception, 3 days of hard work and fires on the beach to roast marsh mellows. Phil Swann put out his contiki and we ate snapper, gurnard and kahawai for breakfast which was yum! Sioux and Honey cooked the substantial farm meals for the kids, who returned exhausted each day after wacking in more than 3000 batten staples by hand. Last week Jim and Rio again donated their time to build a post and rail fence and erect another 180 meter, 8 wire fence, this time to contain a few animals for Jo and Wayne MacNamarra in Te Uku. Gourmet burgers were provided by Wayne and his mum and the kids again gained credits for real life farming work. The Miro Feeds team also deserve thanks for preparing a class for their external examination later in the year. The nutritional requirements for animals is now clearer for these town kids, after seeing, smelling and tasting calf meal and experiencing John and Tracey’s calf rearing shed up close. Thanks Emily and Tracey. It is people like you four that make learning enjoyable and ‘real’ for our students. Regards, Simon Thompson, Teacher of Agricultural Sciences, Fraser High School

Outdoor Bowls season begins with good numbers and Murray Eddy. This was also the first club tournament for our four new student bowlers who played really competitively next to more experienced bowlers. TWILIGHT BOWLS JUST AROUND THE CORNER

Promising young bowler Richard Keremeta delivers the first bowl last Saturday, as the Raglan Bowling Club celebrated the opening of the new season.

Last Saturday saw the first bowling club tournament for the season. The sun shone beautifully and, if numbers attending were anything to go by, the club is in for a busy time over

the next seven months. The fabulous No. 2 (lawn) green, reputed to be one of the best in the Waikato, was a treat to bowl on in the drawn pairs event won by Ross Turner

With the warmer weather and longer days it won’t be long before we get underway with popular twilight bowls for teams of three. This will start on Tuesday 13 November at 6 pm and runs for 5 weeks. Twilight is a great way to give bowling a go and there’ll be plenty of help provided to learn the basics of the game. It costs $30 to register each team and there’s a sausage sizzle fired up each week for those who play.


We are happy to host groups from the community and businesses who might like to try their hand at some fun bowls. For a small charge, the club has a supply of public bowls and all the equipment you’ll need. Bar facilities are available by arrangement. The basics of the game will be explained before you give it a go. You just need to bring your enthusiasm and a pair of flatsoled shoes to wear. To book a group in or to register a team for twilight bowls phone the Bowling Club Ph: 825 8442 and leave your details. Someone from the club will be in touch. Sue Russell

Keen Raglan bowlers get underway with their first roll-up of the new bowling season and despite the challenging weather, some very ‘handy’ bowls were rolled.

Holiday program gets into the spirit of halloween Halloween Costumes, tricks and treats, baking, competitions, scary stories, games, screen printing and lots more Halloween activities! Bring your friends and join in five fun filled days to celebrate Halloween. A week of creative play has been organised by experienced leaders Chris Mitchell & Yann Bordier at the Old School Arts Centre, to mark this international time of fun. A range of daily activities will fire-up a child’s imagination. Yann describes the week as “a kids’ holiday, and we want to make sure they have a fun, creative time. They can move

from one activity to another”. Pumpkins, witches, monsters, ghosts, and goblins, will inspire the imagination as the children produce their own expressive Halloween screen prints. Youngsters will enjoy making amazing costumes with recycled materials. There will be opportunities to learn new skills and plenty of lively games outdoors. And for those young artists who love a challenge, someone will win the competition to design a logo for RAGZ! The children will also be involved in making their own snacks as they take part in the daily baking of bread and get to eat their own creations.

Chris and Yann are experts in leading active children’s holiday programmes based on the arts. Both are accomplished artists and spent several years sailing the islands of the Caribbean, teaching youngsters the skills of sailing and swimming. They know the importance of a relaxed, supportive and stimulating environment. The classes are for ages 5 to 12. All materials are supplied but the kids are welcome to bring their own resources to work with. Monday 8 October to Friday 12 October 2012: 9.00am 3.00pm

SESSION DATES: Session 1:Monday 8 October; Creating Halloween costumes with recycled material & baking Session 2: Tuesday 9 October; Screen printing Halloween prints Session 3: Wednesday 10 October; Competition creating logos for RAGZ Session 4: Thursday 11 October; Halloween paper creations & games Session 5: Friday 12 October; Tricks & Treats Bookings are essential so be in quick.

Seed Tips

° To prepare beds for planting later in the season, cover now with cardboard, carpet, old felt or black sheet plastic. The soil stays moist and there’s less weeding when its time to plant. ° If growing from seed, make a seed sowing schedule, with moon phases if desired, and stick it on the fridge. ° Be vigilant for mould in seed trays in prolonged damp weather. Promote airflow.

▲ Pizza Oven Workshop - The final product ▲ Spotlighting for Native Fish - Bruno David gives a closer look at nightlife in our local streams
