More to ‘homeless’ than meets the eye

INSIDE this week

By ALECIA ROUSSEAU A Palmerston North addiction expert says the community needs to be aware of the issues facing the city’s homeless and less fortunate. Lew Findley has been working with addicts since 1976 and co-ordinates Shepherd’s Rest, a home for those who have, in his words, been cast out from society. The charitable foundation runs four houses and six flats, which means they can house up to 75 people at a time. ‘‘We have 64 residents at the moment; these are mainly men but we also have women and students. Some are addicts and some are mental health patients. We also have ex-prisoners,’’ explained Mr Findley. A recent Massey University study that explored the challenges facing homeless people in Palmerston North found that, despite the city having one of the highest proportions of rental properties, a higher prisoner and student population put pressure on lowcost housing. ‘‘No-one wants to fund or take care of these people; they are not good enough to fit into any specific criteria so they come to us — it gets put on the community to take care of them,’’ Mr Findley said. The centre discourages begging but some residents struggle to support themselves and find busking a good means to fund their addictions. ‘‘We have one man who is

cases; we have an ex-top table tennis player, we have one man who travelled Australasia as a top guitarist and on the other end of the scale, we have a woman who was once known as the Queen of the Black Power.’’ Mr Findley said mental health issues were among the most


common reasons residents had entered the facility. ‘‘If we weren’t here, these 64 men and women would be living on our streets; there is nowhere else for them to go. ‘‘It’s not society that has let them down, it’s the Government.’’

Benny comes to Palmy

Benny Tipene and mentor Ruby Frost will be heading to The Stomach today in a bid to drum up support for the grand finals. Benny was revealed as one of the finalists on Monday night, alongside Whenua Patuwai and Jackie Thomas. Host Dominic Bowden will also be onsite as the X Factor crew films the singer on his hometurf. The public is invited to meet Benny and Ruby from 1pm-2pm at The Stomach, 84 Lombard St.

Digital switch

New research by Colmar Brunton for the Going Digital programme shows there’s still around 3100 Palmerston North homes and 1100 Manawatu District homes with TVs that need to take urgent action to keep watching TV after September 29. Across the lower North Island, 91 per cent of homes now have digital TV, but nine per cent of homes need to get Freeview, IGLOO or SKY. ‘Going Digital’ will be out in the community over the next few weeks to give people advice on what they need to go digital. You can find out more by phoning 0800 838-800, or checking their website,

Submissions delay hearing

The high number of submissions made to the Property Review Hearing has led to a delay in the dates of the hearing. Last year the Council reviewed its holdings and identified a number of properties that are delivering minimal or no value to the community. Almost 300 submissions were received on the proposal and the hearings will now be held on Wednesday August 7 and, if required, Thursday August 8.

Fatal crash on SH3

At about 4.30pm last Sunday, a car travelling south along State Highway 3 near Awahuri collided with a northbound truck and trailer unit. The driver was 57-year-old Wanganui man, Gary Peacock, who died at the scene. His dog was in the car and also died at the scene. The truck driver escaped unhurt and an investigation into the cause of the accident is currently underway by the Serious Crash Unit.

New police dog for city

Health and fluoride facts

Matthew Willey [Guardian, July 11] is a self-proclaimed sceptic, something that (so it would appear from his online presence), is a bit of a hobby.

Unfortunately his hobby is leading some people up the garden path in the non-

of Guardian readers, here are some facts I’ve found out about fluoride and human health. ■ Fluoride is a useful component in the prevention of tooth decay. ■ Optimal results are derived from topical application, which means direct contact with the teeth, as in the form of a mouthwash or application of toothpaste. ■ Fluoride was put into town supply water before toothpaste and mouthwash manufacturers started putting it into their products. ■ Excess internal consumption of fluoride can lead to fluorosis (discoloration of the teeth). All this information is substantiated by research that anyone can and should check out for themselves. I hope this helps clarify the case for the cessation of townwater fluoridation.

Water complaint under way to Rights Commission

By ALECIA ROUSSEAU Residents in Tokomaru are laying an official discrimination complaint with the Human Rights Commission against their council. Horowhenua District Council has put the village on a precautionary boil water notice for approximately 10 years after its Long Term Plan failed to include an upgrade for the town’s water supply. A spokeswoman for the council said a previous boil notice had already been in place for the past three years and residents had only become more aware after mayor Brendon Duffy addressed them at a recent community meeting. ‘‘The decision to defer Tokomaru water treatment plant upgrade to 2025 was made during the 2012-22 Long Term Plan, which was consulted upon with the community,’’ explained HDC communications manager Raewyn Perry. The water grade in Tokomaru is currently E and D grade. This comes from an ‘‘open source’’ above Horseshoe Bend where it is possible for the water to be contaminated after factors such as heavy rain, dry summers and stock movement. ‘‘Open water sources with no catchment protection from animals and domestic activities face risk of animal and people gaining access to the water, hence possible contamination,’’ Ms Perry said. Tokomaru resident Christine Toms said boiling water for more than a year or two was unacceptable. ‘‘Even in a civil defence emergency it is unacceptable to have to boil your water for more than week. We will not receive an upgrade until 2025 and the council will not budge on this,’’ she said. Ms Toms also reached out to Palmerston North mayor Jono Naylor in an attempt to find a solution. ‘‘I met with Mr Naylor to see what help we could get from Palmerston North and he was incredibly good about it but we need something done now. Tokomaru’s water does not meet

HOROWHENUA mayor Brendon Duffy. national drinking water standards — we know this because samples were taken which showed the DCA and TCA levels to be over 50 per cent.’’ A long time Tokomaru resident who wished not to be named, said she had been living there since the 70s and had not heard of the water making anyone unwell. ‘‘I just got back from holiday and the first thing I did was pour a glass of water — it’s the best tasting water around. I’ve never known anyone to get sick from drinking it.’’ The Ministry of Health classifies water that is E grade as having an unacceptable level of risk but, the boil notice means the water supply is compliant with the Public Health Risk Management plan. ‘‘What we can’t control is the protozoa levels in the water which means things like giardia

Even in a civil defence emergency it is unacceptable to have to boil your water for more than week. We will not receive an upgrade until 2025 and the council will not budge on this.

and cryptosporidium can sometimes form, and because we don’t actually know, a boil notice is put in place as a precaution,’’ Ms Perry said. Tokomaru’s water is subject to chlorination but research shows protozoa are resistant to this process.

A RIGHT: Water standards are a focus in Tokomaru.

Crying with the world’s best

Thursday, July 18, 2013


OYEZ!: Caroline Robinson in full town crier flight. Picture: Rob Mildon

By ROB MILDON Palmerston North town crier Caroline Robinson is off to Canada this month to test herself against the best of the best. The world championship invitational in Kingston, Ontario brings together more than 30 town criers from Canada, England, Australia, the United States, Belgium, and of course New Zealand. These are all people who’ve won their national title on more than one occasion.

Town crying at this level is serious stuff. Each cry is judged on six criteria. ‘‘There’s one judge who doesn’t even look at you,’’ says Mrs Robinson. ‘‘They

Course Start: Wednesday 31st July in Feilding with an information evening. Course Cost $250.

This part time course is ideal for lifestyle block owners, home gardeners and/or commercial growers and will provide key knowledge and skills required for organic growing. The overall aim is to build ecosystems, promote biodiversity and increase soil and plant health, instead of relying on artificial fertilisers and poisonous sprays. We will explore the latest trends in sustainable farming both internationally and within NZ. A practical, science-based approach is used to separate myth from fact, while exploring a wide range of organic techniques and methods.

sit with their back to you with a copy of your cry, and they point to every word you say. Every ‘‘um’’ is another word, and a point off. I’ve never been brave enough to do it without my scroll!’’ Cries are given a strict limit of between 120 and 125 words. Humour is permissible, as long as it is not ‘‘salacious or sordid’’ (the rules’ exact words). To complicate matters, the Canadian summer is fiercer than our own. ‘‘Yesterday it was 36 degrees there. My regalia is made of wool, fully lined, and it’s a full greatcoat with a cape on it. I’m going to be hot enough to roast a Protestant — as my Catholic grandmother used to say!’’ Mrs Robinson’s regalia — which sometimes sees her mistaken for a pirate — was created by students at the Palmerston North School of Design. ‘‘They did a fabulous job.’’ Kingston is one of those cities that manages to be very New Zealand, even though it’s thousands of kilometres away. ‘‘I’m really looking forward to going there.’’ Mrs Robinson says it has elements of Palmerston North as well her home town of Oamaru. ‘‘I was fascinated by the things I found out about Kingston.

encapsulates all my interests throughout New Zealand in the one place.’’ The city was considered for the capital of Canada when the country was formed in the 19th century. ‘‘Queen Victoria had the last laugh. I’m sure that if Kingston had been ‘Queenston’, things would have been very different.’’ Town crying is physically demanding, and changes to your body can affect your performance. Mrs Robinson has lost 60kg in three years. ‘‘I don’t have the abdominal ‘oomph’ that I used to have. I’m going to the gym every day to try and build up my diaphragm and my lung capacity.’’ The competition runs from August 1-5.

What do Palmerston North residents think about the new welfare reforms? A brief chat with residents on the streets of Palmerston North revealed varied reactions to the Government’s newly introduced welfare reforms. The reforms aim to decrease the number of people who receive a benefit and include measures such as pre-employment drug tests, emphasis on attaining employment, and stopping benefits to those who have outstanding arrest warrants.

Palmerston North’s Ice Rink has been attributed with lowering crime in The Square, according to local police. Senior Sergeant Brett Calkin said the icy attraction had caused a considerable reduction in crime as a result of its many visitors. ‘‘We believe it has contributed to a reduction in crime during the day in The Square. More people deter offenders and this means there have been less issues,’’ he said. Three thefts were reported in the ice rink’s opening weekend, but Sergeant Calkin said he was not aware of any further incidents. ‘‘We are not aware of anymore thefts taking place and we do not see it as a problem location. After the recent publicity surrounding the thefts, things seem to have dropped off significantly.’’ Ice World director Gareth Webber said it was good to hear the venture was helping to keep crime down. ‘‘We have been getting really positive feedback and have noticed within the rink, there has been a massive drop in thefts and any trouble,’’ he explained. ‘‘It’s logical to assume that with more people and security around, people would be deterred.’’ Mr Webber said already more than 8000 people had

COURTESY FORD - RYDER STAKES B.S.Young Limited: Quin Buildings Direct: Chainey's Levin Kapiti News: 104.2 MORE FM: SUPER LIQUOR LEVIN: LEVIN CRANE HIRE:

There’s nothing we Kiwis like better than New Zealand triumphing over Australia. Perhaps that’s where our fondness for Stan Walker originates. Guardian reporter Dale Wicken spoke with the X Factor judge last Friday to see just how excited he was to be embarking on his upcoming ‘World Tour’ that will include Palmerston North. After exploding on to our screens as the winner of Australian Idol in 2009, the chilled-out, comical, caring musician has endeared himself to us even more over the years. He has recently appeared in the feature film Mt Zion, released numerous hit singles and is now on our screens again as an X Factor judge. Looking forward to seeing what’s next, the star is about to embark on a 23-show tour of New Zealand, bringing his talent to the Regent on Broadway on September 13. He thinks of Palmerston North fondly, saying it was one of his favourite shows of his 2011 tour. A kapa haka group opened for him, which he says made for a jawdroppingly emotional moment. Upon learning that we currently have an ice-skating rink in The Square, he laughs and says he’s a ‘‘pro faller-overer’’ and a ‘‘pro crasher-overer’’. He also jokes that he’d like his next endeavour to be plus-size modelling. While he was clearly the class-clown back at school, he has some serious answers too. ‘‘I wanted to be part of mentoring somebody who could go on to represent New Zealand,’’ he says of his motivation to join the X Factor panel.

While he’s used to being recognised on the street these days, he finds it refreshing to get recognised for something different. ‘‘I used to get Australian Idol — Black Box, but now I get X Factor, it’s all anyone talks about,’’ he says. Going from being judged to being a judge was an interesting experience for Stan. ‘‘We have to take ourselves out of it emotionally and be professional. I know I beat around the bush with my advice but, as long as they get it and I encourage them, it’s all good,’’ he says. In the future he’d like to work with Alicia Keys or Macklemore, but his ultimate inspiration is Beyonce, who he will most definitely be seeing when she comes to New Zealand. Stan has always been open about his faith, having performed at Parachute Music Festival in the past, and citing his beliefs as integral to his success. He says his career has pushed and pulled his faith, but without it he wouldn’t be where he is today. Despite our little chat being one in an undoubtedly long list of press interviews, he’s energetic and attentive the whole time. Regardless of his achievements and popularity, he’s modest and unassuming. ‘‘There’s lots of great singers out there. Lots that are better than me. What makes a difference is character. Character is what gets you further,’’ he says. It’s deep-rooted beliefs like this that make Stan Walker the right type of rolemodel. At only 22 years old, with so much success already under his belt, one can only begin to imagine what’s in store for this gifted young man. ■ Stan Walker will play at The Regent on Broadway, September 13.

Pit has come a long way By MARISE CLARK, Pit Park People The Pit Park People, in partnership with the Palmerston North City Council, are transforming what was a disused clay quarry into a recreational space that will be a lasting resource for the community. Since the project began in 1999, many thousands of native trees and plants have been planted, paths have been formed and three wetlands have been developed. People are increasingly visiting the park, as are a range of native birds, with a kingfisher one of the latest newcomers. The Pit Park is very much a community-based project that relies upon the ongoing commitment and effort of the Pit Park People and other wonderful volunteers that come in groups or individually to work there. In the last few years, progress at the Pit has also received a boost by gaining some funding from outside sources. A grant from Pub Charities received this year has let us purchase 185m3 of mulch. This is an absolute necessity for plant survival in the pit environment as it aids in protecting vulnerable plants from excess water loss in the dry periods and aids in conditioning the rather nutrient-deficient

Romans preferred heavier fabrics; the easiest one to source is possibly calico, there’s a good range at Spotlight. Go for the softer more subtle shades. Toga: for the average person about 5 metres should do it. Men should find something light and flowy — and remember, the whiter the colour the richer you were! Women’s togas can be in silk, satin or plain cotton. ■ Original art at affordable prices, including paintings, porcelain art and woodcrafts, is available at the Manawatu Art Expo.

Writing to the Palmerston North Choral Society on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II, her Lady-in-Waiting noted ‘‘Her Majesty hopes your concert will be a great success.’’ The concert was last Saturday evening’s choral celebration in the city’s St Peter’s Anglican Church to mark the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s Coronation in Westminster Abbey on June 2, 1953. Her Majesty’s kind hopes for the success of the concert were by no means disappointed, with the choir, chamber orchestra, four vocal soloists and organist delivering a robust celebration that would have gladdened the heart of any monarch. All praise is due to musical director Alison Stewart for her competent,

disciplined approach to the works presented. The Choral Society was well within its comfort zone and obviously enjoying the opportunity to present this concert, meeting the demands of four coronation anthems by Handel with confidence and giving a satisfying account of itself in Mozart’s Mass in C Major, the Coronation Mass. Vocal dexterity and a high degree of musical precision are required for works such as these to succeed, especially so with Handel. Under Stewart’s direction, the choir and chamber orchestra rose to both these challenges extremely well, perhaps at the expense of some colour contrast. But rather that than to suffer a choral performance spiralling out of control into musical anarchy. The standard of the choral and orchestral performances was further enhanced by those of the outstanding soloists. Soprano Janey MacKenzie, mezzo Jody Orgias, tenor Jamie Young and bassbaritone Roger Wilson. The sheer professionalism of these four singers gave a wonderful lift to the evening, with MacKenzie and Orgias particularly

delightful in duet. Palmerston North audiences are very fortunate in having opportunities to hear soloists such as these performing locally and with local ensembles. The show-stopper was also the last item on the programme, British composer Charles Hubert Parry’s monumental I Was Glad a setting of verses from Psalm 122 written for the coronation of King Edward VII and performed at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011. With the voices of the four soloists undergirding those of the Choral Society, and organist Roy Tankersley belting out a dazzling accompaniment on the St Peter’s pipe organ, I was Glad was indeed; a performance fit for a queen. The chamber orchestra led by Stephanie Buzzard, with Roy Tankersley on harpsichord, deserves a special mention. This ensemble of instrumentalists gave a great account of itself, launching enthusiastically into the spirit of the occasion and lending an authenticity to the ‘‘period’’ music. In all, a memorable evening. Long live the Queen!

Strong performance can’t overcome meandering story MOVIE REVIEW Everybody has a Plan Cinema Gold 113 minutes Reviewed by Dale Wicken Some actors seem to relish a challenge, and that’s evidently the case for Viggo Mortensen in this dark and brooding Spanish film. Not only does he display impressive and fluent Spanish, but he also plays two different characters: identical twin brothers Agustin and Pedro. Mortensen is undoubtedly the best ingredient in this somewhat undercooked affair. Agustin and Pedro lead very different lives. Agustin is a paediatrician in Buenos Aires who, on the surface, seems content enough with his life. Pedro lives a dismal existence as a bee-keeper around the Tigre Delta

region where the brothers grew up, and is dying of cancer. He’s also an accomplice in a kidnapping ring.


When Pedro’s visit to Agustin ends in his death, Agustin decides to assume his brother’s identity and moves back to his childhood home and into Pedro’s life. The film’s setting is hauntingly beautiful, but it suffers from a lack of narrative and an unbelievable premise that the main characters in Pedro’s life accept that Agustin is Pedro. At times the film is so slow it crawls, which becomes frustrating when there’s so much obvious potential. It’s atmospheric and soulful, but not gripping enough. And although the large issues of dual identity and mortality are clear and explored to a certain extent, what it is that director Ana Piterbarg is saying about them is unclear. While Mortensen succeeds in this challenging role, there’s another challenge within this film: to not leave the cinema annoyed at the inconclusive ending and the fact that the tension you’ve been feeling throughout the film was worthless.

BATH TIME: Rachel House, Antonia Prebble and Whirimako Black share a scene in White Lies.

Historic tale slow but gripping MOVIE REVIEW White Lies (M) Cinema Gold 95 minutes Reviewed by Paula McCool Set early last century, White Lies shows how white society in New Zealand tried to repress Maori beliefs and values. Medicine woman Paraiti (Whirimako Black) leads a simple life, tending to her people. On a visit into town one day, Paraiti is summoned by a Maori servant, Maraea (Rachel House), to come and speak with her mistress, the wealthy Mrs Rebecca Vickers (Antonia Prebble) on a matter of grave importance. When she finds out what the task is, Paraiti refuses. Not much later, a tragedy occurs when a young pregnant woman Paraiti is helping dies during childbirth in a local hospital. Paraiti was not allowed to tend to her as white men’s laws forbid Maori to assist during childbirth.

In shock, Paraiti leaves her community and visits Rebecca to say she will now do her bidding. She sees her role as one of taking revenge for what has happened. The emotions involved in the film are very powerful and suspense is added through the secret shared by Rebecca and Maraea, which is not revealed until near the end. White Lies is gripping and a superb film, but this does not mean it is without its flaws. Without giving away too much, it is fair to say that Rebecca’s predicament is highly improbable, and some scenes just go on far too long. At one point, most people would be thinking ‘‘Oh hurry up and get on with it’’. There is also a big disconnect between the very brief first scene when Paraiti is a girl, and her history could have been revisited via flashbacks — this would have been really interesting. However, the acting by Whirimako Black is outstanding and by far the best thing the film has going for it. It is worth going to White Lies just to see how commanding a performance this is.

Education & Training


Start building your future — today! that we take students every Monday, so there is no waiting. As soon as a student is ready to start, we’re ready to take them on.’’ G&H Training are currently offering specials on course fees. While the Practical Construction Skills course is always free for eligible learners, the Pre-employment Carpentry course usually

costs $704.00. However at the moment, a special price offer of $193 is available. Both courses are fulltime, Monday to Friday, 8am-3.30pm. They also offer a pathway from school, to training, to work, through our Modern Apprenticeship Service. We don’t just leave students after graduation; we support

them into the next stage of their career. ■ For more information, phone 0800 876-4664, check us out at or txt the word TRADES along with your name and location to 226 to register your interest.

Trades training organisation G&H Training are different to other tertiary providers. Offering carpentry courses from their Roslyn workshop, G&H take youngsters who are interested in joining the building trade and give them an opportunity to make a start on a career. ‘‘For youth aged 16-17, we have the Practical Construction Skills course that is free to eligible learners,’’ says operations manager Steve Smithers. ‘‘This course is ideal for those who perhaps aren’t well suited to a school environment because they are still able to gain NCEA levels 1 and 2 and useful skills to help them get started in the construction industry. ‘‘This is an entry-level, practical course that gets young people gaining basic skills and there is even the chance of a scholarship to progress on to the next level.’’ There is also a Level 4 Pre-employment Carpentry course open to anyone over 16 years. This course covers all theory units needed for a building apprenticeship so, once an apprenticeship is secured, there’s no need to work all day and study all night. ‘‘When students come to us they learn the theory and gain hands on experience — some are then able to do a work experience placement during the course, which enables them to make good contacts in the industry,’’ Steve says. Once graduated from the course, students are work-ready and more appealing to employers. ‘‘Our graduates don’t need to take time off work to attend block courses as that part of their apprenticeship has already been achieved.

Beds: Invitation only ASK THE TRAINER

with NADINE STEELE One of the first questions I ask my clients when they start training classes with me is, ‘‘Who lets their dog sleep on their bed with them?’’ This question is met by wide-eyed owners generally feeling caught out and needing to confess this perceived sin of dog ownership. They brace for a lecture. Relax. Of course we let our dogs sleep on our beds. The greatest gift our dogs give us is their loyalty and nothing beats a weekend sleep-in with your fur buddy. For some of us, the feeling of security our dogs give us as they sleep beside us is priceless. There are a few points to consider, however, to ensure our dogs realise sharing our space is a privileged invitation — not their right.

It is equally important to make sure your dogs can and does settle in their own space, whether that be on their own bed or crate in your room or in another room in the house. This will ensure that if your dogs ever stay in someone else’s care or home, where bedsharing is not permitted, you will have dogs that are not stressed about the sleeping arrangements. We balance this behaviour in our home with a few basic rules. If your dogs race to your room and plonk themselves right in the middle of the bed, this needs to be corrected. Issue the ‘‘off’’ command and get yourself sorted and comfortable in bed. You can then invite your dogs to join you with the ‘‘up’’ command. This outlines that you are in control of what is ultimately a high-value resource for your dogs. The bed is an area where no play happens. If you encourage roughhousing or play, this behaviour will be normalised in this environment. So when you really are trying to get that sleep-in, an unexpected nip or body slam really won’t be appreciated. If your dogs are overexcited, ignore them completely until they settle

before you speak to them or pet them. This way they know exactly what behaviour gets the reward from you. A few nights a week in their own space is essential. Daytime naps on the bed when you are not in the room should not be allowed as the ownership of this space then comes into question. This confuses your dogs when you correct them for being on the bed, which they believe is their safe place. The same rules can also be used for the sofa — no invitation, no access. Your dogs need you to give clear resource boundaries. Paw point of the week: Our dogs see sleeping with us as a natural arrangement. A pack will curl up together for the night to ensure security of the group. Nadine Steele is a dog trainer for Mutts R Us. Send your questions to or for further information on Dog Guru, see

Sprays to clean up in winter


Winter is the best season for treating many common pests and diseases in the garden. Pests often overwinter in cracks in the bark or take shelter in other hiding places while they wait for the arrival of warmer conditions. For centuries gardeners and orchardists have taken advantage of winter to break the cycle of pests and disease. These timehonoured methods of controlling garden problems during winter rely on three main ingredients: lime sulphur, copper and mineral oil. Lime sulphur: One of the most useful pesticides in the garden, lime sulphur has a long history, having been first developed in France in the 1840s. The French vineyards at the time had been infected by powdery mildew, a fungal disease that invaded the vines and dramatically reduced yield. Lime sulfur helped clear up the problem. Then, by the 1880s, it had been found that winter spraying with lime sulphur also helped control scale insects. Thus it became recognised for its double effectiveness as a pesticide and a disease control. Lime sulphur can be applied at winter strength on a range of fruit trees, roses and ornamentals while they are in their dormant (leafless) stage to control scale, moss and unwanted lichen. A spray

as the buds start to develop will also control black spot, powdery mildew and rust on pipfruit. The downside to Lime Sulphur is that it smells like rotten egg gas but this odour dissipates fairly quickly. Copper: Like lime sulphur, copper fungicides were first used in the French vineyards, but not until the 1880s. One of the first copper-based fungicides was ‘‘Bordeaux mixture’’, which is a combination of copper sulphate and lime. The disadvantage of traditional Bordeaux mixture is that it can clump and block spray nozzles. It’s also more likely to damage plants than other newer copper fungicides. Because copper sprays are used to create a protective barrier, the more even and thorough the coverage, the better the result. Copper Oxychloride mixes more readily with water than Bordeaux, which makes it easier to apply. Champ DP is an even more advanced formulation. And last year Yates introduced Liquid Copper, a form of copper that combines readily with water, creating a gel that

sticks onto plant material and provides excellent coverage. Timing is critical with all copper sprays and, because incorrect use of copper can be toxic to plants, it’s important to accurately follow the application directions. For example, leaf curl sprays should be applied just as the buds swell in spring. Most importantly, don’t over-apply copper sprays. In some places, where copper has been used on orchards for many years, there is now an unhealthy level of copper in the soil. Because of its small particle size and resulting low use rate, Liquid Copper is much less likely to accumulate at toxic levels in leaves or soil. Spraying oil: Conqueror Spraying Oil is a refined form of mineral oil that puts a smothering film over pests and their eggs. It, too, can be applied to deciduous fruit trees at a stronger winter rate and is very useful for controlling overwintering pests like scale, aphids, and mites. Otherwise these pests can survive the cold weather and rapidly build up their populations again in spring.

SERVICES DIRECTORY Tomorrow’s antiques today REUPHOLSTERY CURTAINS Visitors welcome to our Showroom p: 06 357 1224 | 58 Napier Road, Palmerston North

We watch Antiques Road Show and admire fine craftsmanship from a bygone era. We see the longevity, beauty and the quality of pieces now admired by a generation born many years after the original craftspeople. I can’t help wonder how often this will happen in subsequent generations. As a result of the wasteful actions of our ‘throwaway society’ will there be those beautiful antiques available for future generations to admire? New Zealand firms like Blanchetts are certainly ensuring that there is a heritage to carry on that tells our story. Blanchetts Fine Furniture of 58 Napier Road, Palmerston North are a contrast to the wave of imported furniture. Blanchetts offer an alternative, making hand crafted furniture, using traditional methods. We use New Zealand timbers milled from sustainably managed forests and

make every attempt to reduce our waste. Our furniture frames are solidly made, with joints corned blocked, screwed, glued and dowelled. We know that these will survive for future generations to enjoy and we are so proud of this. If you are presently contemplating buying new furniture, we would ask that you seriously consider New Zealand made. We invite you to come to our factory to inspect what lies beneath the covers of our furniture. You will see solid wooden frames

forming the shape of our furniture and traditional coil springs being hand tied into our classic range. You will note top grade components and quality craftsmanship. The initial investment is high but longterm value is immense. Visualise your grandchildren proudly displaying your Blanchetts furniture in a futuristic version of Antiques Road Show. To begin this journey, please visit our website or visit our 58 Napier Road factory. Judy, Vicki, Bruce and John can be contacted on (06) 357-1224.

Right Royal carry-on! LOOKING BACK: Jim Richards tasting success at Manfeild.



■ To keep up with the latest news check out the Manfeild website,, and our Facebook page.


Amidst all the excitement about the arrival — still imminent as I write— of a new great-grandchild for the Queen, let’s cast our thought to another ‘‘royal baby’’ much closer to home. I’m referring to the Royal A and P Show New Zealand at Manfeild Park on December 6-8. We’re obviously really buoyed to have one of New Zealand’s greatest annual events returning to our region after an 11-year hiatus. The addition of royal status to an agricultural and pastoral event in Manawatu is a major coup for the region; we confidently anticipate seeing 25,000 people coming to our Feilding venue over those three days. Planning this showcase for the brilliance of the national agricultural sector is well advanced and we have been delighted by the positive response from sponsors, entrants and exhibitors. The community reaction to our call for active local participation in committees has also been fantastic. Like the annual Central Districts’ Field Days, the country’s largest regional rural event — staged at our venue every March, the Royal A and P Show will present the best that country New Zealand has to offer, but with greater emphasis on family fun and competition than pure commercial opportunity. The show committee has put together a massive programme including a Grand Parade, numerous competitions, trade exhibitions, a carnival and the return of the fireworks spectacular as the grand finale on the evening of December 8. We will progressively reveal details over the next month or so, but rest assured it will be a huge night of music, with some top national acts and a real singalong, party atmosphere. We can only reiterate that the Royal A and P Show is going to be an event for the region, by people of the region. It will be a showcase of all that is great about heartland New Zealand, with emphasis on equestrian, agricultural and horticultural excellence, that will provide a massive fillip in terms of crowd size, financial impact and competitor involvement. Our focus is also on the celebration of the 40 years since the circuit opened. The previous column sparked a lot of community interest and Terry Rush, a Manfeild Car Club old hand who has been good enough to guide us through the celebration planning, has fielded a lot of calls since. One small point that I have to remedy; in that previous column, I referred to a famous first national meeting joust between emerging greats Jim Richards and Leo Leonard, both in Ford Falcons. A slight error; Leo was in the race, but driving a Holden Monaro and further back in the fray. The other main protagonist in that first of so many epic battles seen at Manfeild was another famous name, Robbie Francevik. Upcoming events this weekend at Manfeild are a Central Districts’ Dressage competition on Saturday (July 20) and the Manawatu Car Club road and track event on Sunday (July 21). We look forward, as always, to the Palmerston North Hot Rod

Club swap meet on August 3 and the Evento Wearable Arts Awards on August 10, though sadly I’ll not be able to get to the latter, through being on holiday. A great shame because it’s always a fantastic night.

Don’t risk it! As a tyre becomes worn it loses it’s ability to shed water, increasing the risk of aquaplaning. Aquaplaning is when a layer of water becomes trapped between the tyre and the road’s surface, causing the vehicle to ‘skate’ out of control. Don’t risk your safety driving on old worn tyres. Ask about the right tyre for your vehicle - now!

SERVICES DIRECTORY Friendly affordable appliance servicing Tired of doing the dishes by hand or using an oven that doesn’t cook properly? The Appliance Doctor is here to help, servicing all types of whiteware: washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, fridges and freezers, stoves, cooktops and wall ovens. Bill Stewart is The Appliance Doctor. With over 20 years’ experience in appliance servicing you can rely on Bill’s knowledge and expertise to get your appliances operating smoothly once more. Bill specialises in the repair of Fisher &

Paykel appliances, having a van well stocked with F&P parts and many years of experience with this brand. He also services a variety of other brands so if you have several appliances of different makes needing attention that’s not a problem. The one low house call fee applies whether it’s one, two or more appliances being looked at on the same premises. If you have an older appliance you can trust that Bill will give you an honest appraisal of whether or not it is worth repairing. As he does not sell new or used

appliances, he does not have a vested interest in writing off your appliance. The Appliance Doctor provides the kind of personal service that only a small business can offer. Bill takes pride in providing an honest, friendly and reliable service where customer satisfaction is of utmost importance. Affordability is important too, with very competitive charges, a low house call fee and no hidden costs such as charges for electrical safety tests, booking fees or mileage. Here’s a tip from The Appliance Doctor to save you money: always remember to check pockets before loading your washing machine as small items such as hair clips, coins and nails can block the pump. To book your unwell appliance for a visit from the doctor, phone Bill or Kate on (06) 359-2466 or see
