Cop retires<br />

with bravery<br />

medal for<br />

daring rescue<br />

SENIOR CONSTABLE Tony<br />

Maw did not receive a standard<br />

retirement gift at his farewell<br />

from the police.<br />

His act of bravery to rescue<br />

a woman from a floating<br />

vehicle was recognised by the<br />

Royal Humane Society of New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Maw was presented with a<br />

bronze medal for his selfless<br />

response when realising a car<br />

had ended up in French <strong>Bay</strong>,<br />

Akaroa, shortly after the offduty<br />

officer from Rangiora had<br />

completed the Little River Rail<br />

Trail bicycle route.<br />

He was with friends driving<br />

into the tourist town on<br />

October 18, 2021, 28 years to<br />

the day after he graduated from<br />

Trentham Police College, when<br />

one of the group spotted a car<br />

in the water.<br />

It had rolled down the boat<br />

ramp and was drifting with the<br />

tide away from shore.<br />

Board signs off on Māori immersion school<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

A MĀORI immersion school<br />

is a step closer to being built in<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū Banks<br />

Peninsula Community Board<br />

voted on Monday to recommend<br />

the sale of a section of city council<br />

land to the school’s backers Nōku<br />

Te Ao Charitable Trust.<br />

The board also recommended a<br />

fire station be built on the 39.02ha<br />

section at 27 Hunters Rd and 42<br />

Whero Ave. It would replace the<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> Volunteer Fire<br />

Brigade old station which is no<br />

longer fit for purpose.<br />

The city council will now consider<br />

the land sales, with the date<br />

still to be determined.<br />

All board members voted in<br />

favour of the proposal except<br />

Luana Swindells who<br />

abstained due to a conflict<br />

of interest.<br />

The board will ask the<br />

city council to help address<br />

the community’s traffic<br />

concerns when considering<br />

the land sale. The board<br />

also recommended the site’s<br />

entry should not impact the<br />

Nothing compares to local expertise.<br />

“It was really good. It<br />

was great to hear from the<br />

community and hear the<br />

legitimate concerns,” said<br />

Lyttelton board member<br />

Cathy Lum-Webb.<br />

The board heard<br />

from the school, Te Pā o<br />

Rākaihautū, and Ministry<br />

of Education representatives.<br />

Members of the public also<br />

spoke at the board meeting with<br />

submissions for and against the<br />

planned school split. Some cited<br />

the importance of recognising<br />

Māori culture, while others<br />

spoke of traffic concerns for<br />

students travelling into Diamond<br />

Historic watering hole proving<br />

difficult to sell in tough market<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

THE OWNERS of the historic<br />

Ōtoromiro Hotel are struggling<br />

to sell it after more than a year<br />

on the market.<br />

The Governors <strong>Bay</strong> landmark<br />

has a $2.5 million price tag.<br />

Several interested individuals<br />

and businesses have been in<br />

contact with owners Jeremy<br />

Dyer and Clare Neville-Dyer<br />

but they are still waiting for the<br />

right match.<br />

After more than 20 years as<br />

the pub’s owners, the couple<br />

now want to retire. Their two<br />

adult children are not interested<br />

in inheriting the hotel.<br />

“We’re definitely realistic<br />

about the time it takes to sell<br />

hospitality ventures. It’s a lot<br />

more difficult to sell a hotel<br />

than a house,” said Dyer.<br />

He believes difficult<br />

economic conditions and high<br />

employment are causing fewer<br />

people to show interest in the<br />

hospitality sector.<br />

“Banks are notoriously hard<br />

to lend off, particularly for<br />

hospitality,” said Dyer.<br />

“The money we’re asking for<br />

not many people have got in<br />

ICONIC: Jeremy Dyer and Clare Neville-Dyer have<br />

been trying to sell the 153-year-old Ōtoromiro Hotel in<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong> since March last year.<br />

their back pocket. That’s why it’s<br />

a fairly small talent pool from a<br />

potential buyers point of view.”<br />

There has been a diverse<br />

range of potential buyers with<br />

both domestic and foreign<br />

interest but they are still waiting<br />

for the right match, said Dyer.<br />

The couple want to either sell<br />

both the property and business<br />

or hold the title and lease it with<br />

a potential lease-to-buy option.<br />

They have a road trip around<br />

New Zealand planned once the<br />

sale is done.<br />

“We’ve enjoyed our years here<br />

and it’s time move on really.”<br />

The hotel is the only bar<br />

in Governors <strong>Bay</strong> and is<br />

affectionately known as ‘the<br />

pub’. Residents often also use it<br />

as a community hub.<br />

“One of our regulars bet me<br />

$1000 in 2003 to say we’d be<br />

gone in a year. I never got the<br />

money off him.”<br />

Built in 1870, the building<br />

was home to the Ocean View<br />

Hotel until 1980 when it was<br />

changed to the Smugglers<br />

Arms.<br />

Under the couple’s ownership,<br />

it was called the Governors <strong>Bay</strong><br />

Hotel until 2020, when they<br />

decided to shake off the name’s<br />

colonial history and adopt the<br />

Māori name for Governors <strong>Bay</strong>,<br />

Ōtoromiro.<br />

If both the business and<br />

property are sold, Dyer<br />

hopes the new owner will<br />

retain the Māori name.<br />

Okains <strong>Bay</strong> to Suva: Robin’s service<br />

From King and country<br />

to Queen and corgis,<br />

Robin Ashley, a proud<br />

Cantabrian and Royalist<br />

joined the Women’s<br />

Auxiliary Air Force<br />

as a teenager from<br />

Okains <strong>Bay</strong> and passed<br />

away as one of New<br />

Zealand’s oldest World<br />

War 2 veterans. Chris<br />

Barclay reports<br />

WITH NO brothers able to take<br />

up the fight and carry on an<br />

early Okains <strong>Bay</strong> family’s sense<br />

of duty to King and Country,<br />

Dulcie Edna Isabel Robinson<br />

enlisted to serve in World War 2<br />

without hesitation.<br />

Motivated by her father Bill’s<br />

service as a teenager in South<br />

Africa’s Boer War and unfazed<br />

by a shell-shocked soldier from<br />

the Great War the family took in,<br />

she joined the Women’s Auxiliary<br />

Air Force in 1941, soon after<br />

finishing school in Christchurch.<br />

Before turning 18, Dulcie, the<br />

youngest of three daughters,<br />

would serve behind the counter<br />

of the Okains <strong>Bay</strong> Store, a business<br />

established by her grandfather<br />

John in 1878 and run by her<br />

Dad until the Depression hit in<br />

the early 1930s.<br />

Her mother Frances died while<br />

giving birth to William so she<br />

was raised from six onwards by<br />

dad and her sisters Wyn and<br />

Nita.<br />

Growing up in the close-knit<br />

farming community, she would<br />

ride the horse-drawn cart carrying<br />

whey to the cheese factory<br />

at Barrys <strong>Bay</strong>, a rough 10 miles<br />

away in those days.<br />

The tormented soldier held<br />

the reins, while barely holding<br />

himself together.<br />

Gassed in the trenches and<br />

pounded by German bombardments,<br />

he hardly slept when<br />

returning to a tranquil enclave<br />

on Banks Peninsula.<br />

Although listed on the Auckland<br />

War Memorial’s Online<br />

Cenotaph under her family<br />

name, she spent most of her life<br />

as Robin Ashley before dying as<br />

COMMITMENT TO SERVICE:<br />

Robin Ashley after joining<br />

the Women’s Auxiliary Air<br />

Force and right, with her<br />

medals from World War 2<br />

and a photograph taken<br />

during her service with the<br />

Women’s Auxiliary Air Force.<br />

WAR EFFORT: Robin Ashley (seventh from left) with fellow<br />

members of the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force.<br />

one of New Zealand’s oldest war<br />

veterans.<br />

She passed away in February,<br />

aged 101.<br />

Her only surviving child,<br />

Craig, explained how she<br />

favoured a derivative of her<br />

maiden name over her Christian,<br />

second or third names: “She was<br />

called Robbie in the air force,”<br />

he said.<br />

That nickname stuck, with a<br />

slight modification.<br />

Strong-willed and resolute,<br />

Ashley proudly counted herself<br />

among the early, if not the first,<br />

female recipients of a three per<br />

cent home loan from the State<br />

Advances Corporation to put<br />

towards a mortgage.<br />

Favourable terms were typically<br />

reserved for returned servicemen,<br />

although not her<br />

husband Jim because he was<br />

a lieutenant in the Fijian Army.<br />

They met while stationed in<br />

Suva, Ashley was posted there in<br />

1944 as a wireless operator.<br />

There she also defied convention<br />

by using her left hand to<br />

write messages and her right to<br />

transmit Morse code.<br />

Left-handedness was frowned<br />

upon when Ashley was educated<br />

but, typically, she resisted<br />

attempts to conform with her<br />

classmates.<br />

Ashley never experienced<br />

combat conditions in Fiji, Japan’s<br />

territorial ambitions did not<br />

stretch that far, not that she was<br />

spared the horrors of war.<br />

“When she was in the WAAF<br />

her and a friend met two Americans<br />

in Wellington,” her son<br />

recalled.<br />

“They got on well and the<br />

American boys came back six<br />

months later from somewhere<br />

in the Pacific and gave them<br />

presents. Mum got a Japanese<br />

wireless backpack, the other girl<br />

was given the skull of a Japanese<br />

soldier. He’d been scalped.<br />

“The Americans went off<br />

again, and never came back. The<br />

girls were 18 and grew up pretty<br />

quickly.”<br />

Ashley rarely reflected on war<br />

service, probably on account of<br />

the monotony.<br />

“It was very quiet in Fiji. Dad<br />

was in artillery, they pointed<br />

the gun and polished it,” Craig<br />

Ashley said.<br />

“Mum would contact planes<br />

with Morse code. She remembered<br />

once a plane was not<br />

responding. She was up all night<br />

sending messages, but there was<br />

no reply. They assumed it was<br />

shot down, or lost.”<br />

Robin and Jim were married<br />

in Christchurch in 1946<br />

and then returned to Fiji,<br />

where they built a base at Suva<br />

Point.<br />

The couple and their children<br />

Craig and Sheran took a<br />

seaplane back to New Zealand<br />

in 1950, landing in Auckland<br />

before heading south where a<br />

second boy, Brent, was born in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

Neither parent dwelled on the<br />

war during peacetime.<br />

Jim Ashley, who died in 2005<br />

aged 83, taught at North New<br />

Brighton Primary School; Robin<br />

worked part-time in an accountancy<br />

firm and took bets for the<br />

TAB on race days.<br />

It took urging from her daughter-in-law<br />

Robyn Ashley to wear<br />

her medals on Anzac Day when<br />

attending the commemoration<br />

at the Air Force Museum in<br />

Wigram.<br />

“She was encouraged to be<br />

proud of it. She walked (in a<br />

parade) once or twice,” Craig<br />

Ashley said.<br />

“It wasn’t always popular<br />

in the old days, nobody really<br />

wanted to talk about it.”<br />

Sacrifice<br />

Commemoration<br />

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:<br />

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn<br />

“She loved the Queen. Some<br />

girls get a crush on a pop star. If<br />

you have a crush on the Queen<br />

it lasts 80 years, and Mum was a<br />

fan girl for a long, long time.<br />

“The Queen had a corgi<br />

called Brandy, Mum called hers<br />

Shandy.”<br />

Ashley was a long-standing<br />

member of the Canterbury Kennel<br />

Association and South Island<br />

Welsh Corgi League, breeding<br />

the diminutive dogs into her 90s.<br />

Of course, Ashley outlived her<br />

beloved monarch, who died on<br />

September 8, 2022, aged 96.<br />

King Charles III and Queen<br />

Camilla were no substitute.<br />

“Mum got a card from them<br />

for her 100th with their photos<br />

on the front and she threw it<br />

in the bin. She thought it was a<br />

scam,” Craig Ashley said.<br />

While nostalgic for the<br />

Queen’s reign, a day trip to<br />

Okains <strong>Bay</strong> was hardly a happy<br />

trip down memory lane in the<br />

late 1990s.<br />

“She was mortified, absolutely<br />

depressed beyond belief and she<br />

cursed me for taking her there.<br />

“There was no life at all. She<br />

remembered it as a vital community<br />

and didn’t want to talk<br />

about it after that,” Craig Ashley<br />

said.<br />

Her mother is buried in<br />

Okains <strong>Bay</strong>, Ashley’s urn may be<br />

opened in Robinsons <strong>Bay</strong> near<br />

Duvauchelle where Sheran and<br />

Brent’s remains were spread.<br />

The area is not named after the<br />

family, though they built a holiday<br />

home, ‘The Cottage’ there in<br />

the 1970s.<br />

Damaged WW2 plaque to be restored<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

A DAMAGED World War 2<br />

roll of honour plaque is being<br />

restored for the Okains <strong>Bay</strong><br />

museum’s Anzac collection.<br />

The brass plaque is engraved<br />

with the names of 30 Okains <strong>Bay</strong><br />

service people.<br />

The restoration is a joint<br />

project between the museum and<br />

the city council which hopes to<br />

bring back the shine and dignity<br />

of the worn out piece.<br />

Memorialised on the plaque<br />

is Flight Sergeant Bernard<br />

Corrigall. He was the only<br />

Okains <strong>Bay</strong> resident to die in<br />

World War 2 when a tragic<br />

accident caused his bomber to<br />

collide with a friendly aircraft<br />

near Thailand in 1944.<br />

Eric Spurr’s father was<br />

Corrigall’s cousin and he is<br />

also the nephew of nurse Olive<br />

Spurr whose name is also on the<br />

plaque.<br />

“It’s important to preserve. It’s<br />

a piece of history and also a piece<br />

of art in the old style,” he said.<br />

Spurr lived with Olive while<br />

at university and said she was a<br />

“very loving and caring person’’.<br />

She was a post office clerk in<br />

Christchurch and trained in first<br />

aid and nursing before enlisting<br />

in 1943.<br />

While New Zealand soldiers<br />

were fighting across North<br />

Africa, Spurr cared for the<br />

wounded in Helwan, Egypt.<br />

The plaque is 65cm wide by<br />

95cm tall within a wooden<br />

frame. Engraving company<br />

Moller Young crafted it with<br />

the exact date unknown, but<br />

believed to be in the years<br />

after World War 2, well before<br />

common use of computer<br />

technology.<br />

“It would have been a costly<br />

piece to make,” said museum<br />

manager Wendy Riley.<br />

“The roll of honour may<br />

have been hand-engraved with<br />

engraving chisels, and those<br />

REMEMBERED: The roll<br />

of honour recognises the<br />

people from Okains <strong>Bay</strong> who<br />

served in World War 2.<br />

skills do not exist anymore.”<br />

The plaque had resided in the<br />

Okains <strong>Bay</strong> Community Hall<br />

where it degraded over time,<br />

with stains, bug infestation, and<br />

graffiti.<br />

In <strong>April</strong> last year, a meeting<br />

between city council staff, the<br />

Okains <strong>Bay</strong> reserve management<br />

committee and the museum got<br />

the project to restore the plaque<br />

rolling.<br />

Independent conservator<br />

Emily Fryer now has the<br />

plaque and is awaiting further<br />

specifications for the restoration<br />

from the city council who are<br />

providing the funds.<br />

“What we want to do is<br />

preserve it, not make it a<br />

completely new object.”<br />

City council head of parks,<br />

Rupert Bool said the restoration<br />

will include work to the wooden<br />

frame and brass plaque.<br />

The frame will be brushed,<br />

fumigated for borer beetles and<br />

then injected with boracide<br />

to reduce the risk of it being<br />

reinfested.<br />

The brass plaque will be<br />

cleaned, removing dust, paint<br />

marks and old abrasive polish.<br />

Fryer said the work could take<br />

around a month, once it gets<br />

started.<br />

“We’ve worked on many war<br />

memorials and it feels really nice<br />

when you get to hang them up<br />

and see them on a wall. People<br />

have connections to them and<br />

I think that makes them really<br />

valuable.”<br />

It is unknown when the<br />

restoration will be complete, but<br />

it will not be finished in time for<br />

this year’s Anzac Day period as<br />

originally intended.<br />

The city council owns the<br />

plaque and will loan it to the<br />

museum until a new suitable site<br />

or appropriate alternative facility<br />

becomes available.<br />

The museum is looking for<br />

donations to help preserve and<br />

improve its Anzac collection.<br />

Raised funds will help install the<br />

plaque.<br />

Big crowd at festival’s return<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

MORE THAN 700 people were<br />

on hand for the return of the<br />

Akaroa Harvest Festival after a<br />

four-year hiatus.<br />

“The day was amazing. It was<br />

packed for most of the time,”<br />

said organiser Jenny Williams.<br />

The festival raised more than<br />

$5000 for a planned astroturf at<br />

the Akaroa tennis courts off Rue<br />

Lavaud.<br />

Various stalls and<br />

competitions populated the<br />

grounds of The Grand Hotel on<br />

Saturday.<br />

The weekly Akaroa Farmers<br />

Market was held at the same<br />

time, expanding the range of<br />

options available to visitors.<br />

The popular attractions<br />

included a juice maker who<br />

entertained children and a cake<br />

auction.<br />

“The kids just loved watching<br />

him do that and drinking the<br />

fruit juice. It was just a really<br />

nice, relaxed vibe.<br />

“We’ve had fantastic feedback,<br />

you know, lots of people have<br />

said it was an amazing day.”<br />

Organisers are now deciding<br />

whether to make the festival an<br />

“The only feedback we’ve<br />

had from our stallholders is<br />

to advertise more widely in<br />

Christchurch to get even more<br />

people coming in.”<br />

Attendees also got to explore<br />

stalls selling salmon, garden art<br />

and crafted goods.<br />

Ministry head of property Sam<br />

Fowler said the Government<br />

understood the community’s<br />

concerns over the potential<br />

for congestion on the roads<br />

into Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong>. But he<br />

reassured them any traffic issues<br />

will be solved.<br />

The results of a city council<br />

survey show Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

residents are in favour of building<br />

a new fire station but split on the<br />

school.<br />

The survey, under taken in<br />

February, found 50.9 per cent<br />

of respondents from Diamond<br />

school being built, 34.9 per cent<br />

were fully in favour, 8.9 per cent<br />

were somewhat in favour, and 5.3<br />

‘Constable Maw’s actions<br />

saved this woman’s life’<br />

•From page 1<br />

Said Maw: “I could see a<br />

woman in the driver’s seat, but<br />

she wasn’t responding to anyone<br />

on shore.<br />

“The car was filling with water.<br />

I didn’t stop to think. I just got<br />

my gear off, chucked my bike<br />

shorts on and jumped in.<br />

“You hear people say they<br />

didn’t really think about it, they<br />

just acted – that’s a real thing, it’s<br />

exactly what happened,” he said.<br />

Maw swam about 20 metres to<br />

the car and discovered the doors<br />

were locked.<br />

However, the passenger<br />

window was down, so he<br />

clambered over the bonnet as the<br />

car was inundated.<br />

“By the time I got to the<br />

passenger side, the woman had<br />

made her way there too and she<br />

kind of fell into my arms.<br />

“I flipped her over and paddled<br />

her back. To be honest, I was a<br />

bit out of practice. The last time<br />

I performed a water rescue was<br />

28 years ago in a pool at Police<br />

College – there was a moment I<br />

wondered if I was doing it right,”<br />

he said.<br />

Maw’s medal was<br />

accompanied by a citation which<br />

backgrounded his life-saving<br />

exploits.<br />

“It was later established the<br />

incident was a mental health<br />

AFTERMATH: The woman’s car floating under Daly’s Wharf after she was rescued.<br />

crisis for the woman, and Senior<br />

Constable Maw’s actions saved<br />

this woman’s life and allowed for<br />

ongoing mental health assistance<br />

to be provided.”<br />

Although there was a<br />

successful outcome, Maw was<br />

disturbed by the ordeal.<br />

“I had trouble sleeping<br />

afterwards, thinking about<br />

what would have happened if I<br />

didn’t get her out. It was great<br />

to go back to work. I had a good<br />

chat to a mate who could talk<br />

from experience and he helped<br />

a lot,” he said. “I know all my<br />

workmates would have done the<br />

same thing, we just play what’s in<br />

front of us.”<br />

Maw’s retirement function was<br />

held at the Rangiora branch of<br />

the Royal New Zealand Returned<br />

and Services Association earlier<br />

this month.

Architectural festival shining a<br />

spotlight on buildings, culture<br />

OPEN CHRISTCHURCH, the<br />

annual festival of architectural<br />

excellence, returns on May<br />

3-5, with a celebration of the<br />

city’s architecture and several<br />

buildings from <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

News area.<br />

The festival highlights a<br />

variety of buildings, landscapes<br />

and experiences, with a focus<br />

on innovative mixed-use<br />

and adaptive reuse, and rich<br />

residential and recreational<br />

offerings that span 160 years.<br />

People are invited to explore<br />

the city in different ways, including<br />

through a family visit<br />

to Te Raekura Redcliffs School.<br />

Attendees are invited to explore<br />

this contemporary school,<br />

which captures the cultural<br />

history and coastal context<br />

of Redcliffs on Sunday, May 5<br />

from 10am-2pm, and to explore<br />

its multi-level layout – connected<br />

by slides, netting, poles and<br />

ramps – which is a delight for<br />

younger people to discover.<br />

Those who wish to learn<br />

more about how the design<br />

captures Māori history and<br />

traditional pathways while<br />

addressing its coastal location<br />

can book in for a free architecture<br />

tour at either 10.30am or<br />

11.30am.<br />

Over the hill in Whakaraupō,<br />

the Kilwinning Lodge/Former<br />

Odd Fellows Lodge/Hammond<br />

Studio is a great example of<br />

adaptive reuse.<br />

As its name suggests, it has<br />

served several uses over the<br />

course of its life. Open on Saturday,<br />

May 4 from 10am-2pm,<br />

the Italianate structure boasts<br />

an interior rich with history.<br />

The building’s composite<br />

structure tells a story of survival<br />

through fire and quakes,<br />

while traces of its Freemason<br />

history and its time as the<br />

studio of celebrated artist Bill<br />

Hammond speak to its journey<br />

through time.<br />

concept of living has brought<br />

Open Christchurch features<br />

fifty buildings that will open<br />

their doors for the public to<br />

explore over the course of one<br />

weekend, for free (apart from a<br />

handful of limited entry buildings<br />

SFF celebrate 30 years of helping locals<br />

FOR THE LAST three years, the<br />

Sumner Ferrymead Foundation<br />

has given scholarships to young<br />

people in tertiary study.<br />

Applications for this year’s<br />

awards are now closed and we<br />

have been delighted with the<br />

number and quality of applications<br />

received. Deciding on the<br />

winners will be no easy task!<br />

Awards will be made at a function<br />

on July 10 and everyone is<br />

welcome. As these scholarships<br />

have gained momentum, so too<br />

has the awards function. Last<br />

year’s awards were very well attended<br />

The scholarships have gone<br />

from strength-to-strength.<br />

Although this year we have no<br />

applications for apprenticeship<br />

awards (worth $2000), we have<br />

multiple applications for each of<br />

the other disciplines (Environmental,<br />

Sciences, Humanities,<br />

Life Science).<br />

No doubt the word is getting<br />

around! All of these awards<br />

exclude first year students, and<br />

recipients must have a good<br />

academic record from previous<br />

year(s) at university. They<br />

also must have a local connection<br />

to the area. The awards are<br />

for $5000 and the recipient will<br />

receive the funds to spend how<br />

they wish.<br />

At the same time as promoting<br />

and deciding on the recipients of<br />

AWARDED: The Te Ara Kura Barnett Park, recipients of the Environment & Sustainability Award from 2022.<br />

the scholarships, we are celebrating<br />

our 30th birthday!<br />

The Sumner Ferrymead<br />

Foundation was started in 1994<br />

by Dora Grut (nee Neville) to<br />

benefit the Sumner Ferrymead<br />

region.<br />

Since that time, we have made<br />

many grants to institutions<br />

such as sports clubs, individuals,<br />

institutions like the Sumner<br />

Surf Lifesaving Club, schools,<br />

students, and those involved in<br />

the arts and the environment to<br />

name just some.<br />

Funds have come from some<br />

very generous individuals and<br />

local businesses.<br />

Our own funds now sit at about<br />

$250,000 but thanks to many very<br />

caring people who are happy to<br />

assist others, we have often been<br />

able to receive a matching donation<br />

for the grants that we make.<br />

This is certainly true of the<br />

scholarships that are awarded.<br />

The awards function is open to<br />

the public and this year our local<br />

MP Vanessa Weenink has agreed<br />

to do the honours.<br />

The function is at 5.30pm on<br />

Friday, July 10 at the Mt Pleasant<br />

Community Centre.<br />

whole life in the shadow of her mom’s mysterious disappearance.<br />

Sixteen years ago, Rachel Price vanished and young Bel was the only<br />

witness. Rachel is gone, presumed dead. The case is dragged up from<br />

the past when the Price family agree to a true crime documentary. Bel can’t<br />

wait for filming to end, for life to go back to normal. But then Rachel Price<br />

reappears, and life will never be normal again …<br />

‘Jackson is the queen of young adult novels’ Independent<br />

‘A blisteringly good standalone thriller.’ The Observer on Five Survive,<br />

‘A thrill ride.’ The Guardian<br />

Holly Jackson was ‘BookTok Author of the Year’ at the 2023 TikTok Book<br />

Awards.<br />

The Wild Date Palm<br />

by Diane Armstrong<br />

From a bestselling Australian author comes a gripping novel of espionage,<br />

passion and sacrifice set in the Middle East during World War I. Based<br />

on an astonishing true story, it asks what are you willing to die for? For<br />

readers of Geraldine Brooks, Heather Morris and Alli Parker. During a<br />

train journey across Turkey’s Anatolian Plain in 1915 during World War I,<br />

Shoshana Adelstein witnesses the slaughter of the Armenians and knows<br />

she has just come face to face with her destiny. Convinced that her Jewish<br />

community in a small outpost of the Ottoman Empire will soon meet a<br />

similar fate, she is desperate to save her people. With Turkey and Britain<br />

locked in a global conflict, she orchestrates an audacious plan. Enlisting<br />

a group of co-conspirators who include her charismatic lover Eli and her<br />

impetuous brother Nathan, this young woman forms a clandestine spy ring.<br />

Conquering almost insurmountable obstacles, they risk betrayal, torture<br />

and death to spy on the Turks and pass on intelligence to the British to<br />

help them win the war. This epic novel explores the fate of ordinary people<br />

whose mission collides with the secret agenda of powerful countries,<br />

people ready to risk everything to rescue their communities. But can<br />

individuals affect the fate of nations? And when life is at stake, how far will<br />

we go to reach the limits of our dreams?<br />

ANZAC DAY<br />

THURSDAY APRIL 25, 20<strong>24</strong><br />

Remembering our Anzacs<br />

“The darkness, calm and chill of the early morning; the sound of<br />

the single tap of the drum of the parade; the emotionless faces<br />

of the catafalque guard, and the mournful notes of Last Post<br />

sounded by a lone bugler, combine to give a feeling of deep<br />

solemnity. It is the intensity of the symbolism which contributes<br />

to its powerful impact upon participants; indeed what underlies its<br />

popularity. In a country with few public rituals, the Dawn Service<br />

continues to provide a sense of occasion as a meaningful ritual of<br />

remembrance.”<br />

rsa.org.nz<br />

Every year Anzac Day is observed on <strong>April</strong> 25 by communities<br />

throughout New Zealand and Australia to remember those who have<br />

served and those who lost their lives in war. The term ANZAC is the<br />

acronym for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and was first<br />

used in World War 1. These groups of soldiers back then were known<br />

as ‘the Anzacs’.<br />

Anzac commemorations may consist of one or more ceremonies –<br />

one at dawn (timed to coincide with the initial landings at Gallipoli<br />

by Australian troops who were the first ashore) and/or one later<br />

in the morning. The ceremonies are rich in tradition and generally<br />

begin with a parade of returned servicemen and military personnel<br />

followed by cadets, youth groups and local dignitaries. War veterans,<br />

proudly sporting their medals lead the parade, which leads to a local<br />

cenotaph or memorial gate where the ceremony includes a service<br />

with hymns, laying of wreaths, dedications, prayers and the Last Post<br />

played on a bugle. Morning tea follows and allows people to share<br />

memories and catch up with friends and neighbours.<br />

Anzac Day was first observed by servicemen in 1916 to mark the<br />

anniversary of New Zealand and Australian soldiers landing on the<br />

Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. It soon became a day where all New<br />

Zealanders and Australians took time to remember the men and<br />

women who perished in the Great War. In 1921, Anzac Day became<br />

an official holiday and by 1922 it was declared a full public holiday<br />

where shops, banks and hotels remained closed for the day.<br />

Symbol of remembrance<br />

The red (or Flanders) poppy is a symbol of remembrance and hope<br />

all over the world and, in some countries, is worn on Armistice<br />

Day, however in New Zealand the red poppy is commonly worn<br />

on Anzac Day. The first Poppy Day appeal was on <strong>April</strong> <strong>24</strong> in 1922,<br />

where funds from the sales of small and large silk poppies helped<br />

relieve suffering in war-ravaged northern France. A paper version<br />

of the poppy is now sold by the Royal New Zealand Returned<br />

Services Association on Poppy Day to raise awareness for Anzac<br />

Day and funds for returned soldiers and their families and local<br />

communities.<br />

‘They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:<br />

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.<br />

At the going down of the sun and in the morning<br />

We will remember them.’<br />
