CHRISTMAS PARADE UPDATE
Well, it’s two weeks to the big day and planning is well
under way,
but it’s not too late to enter a float, stall or offer to help.
We are also holding a new local competition for Christmas:
“THE BEST DRESSED HOUSE IN MGTO”
So get out the Christmas decorations and let your imagination run wild. There will be a 5km boundary for entries, for
info or to enter give me a call.
There will also be a best dressed award on parade
day; this is open to anyone not taking part in the parade.
We are also holding the best

dressed win-

dow/window display; this will be judged during the day and night.
The business floats this year have a theme:

“KIWIANA CHRISTMAS”
The community floats have no set theme, so let your creative juices flow.

I put out a challenge to every business
owner, home owner and individual to
make this years parade the biggest, best
and most colourful yet!!!
The time table for the parade day is:
2.00pm - stalls set up at the mgto four
square
5.00pm - parade build up starts.
6.00pm - parade starts
7.00pm - prize giving and activities
for the whole family at the
Maungaturoto Country Club
(see advertisement)
Please remember - no parking in town on the main street
from 4:30pm onwards - the Maungaturoto Primary School
grounds will be open for parking. I would also stress the
need for common sense and patience - remember there
will be lots of children running around, and traffic may be
heavy and slow at times. Also there is, as always, a complete ban on water balloons and guns during the parade,
save them for the summer holidays!!!.
Any questions, queries, entries, offers of help and other
general enquiries call

Terri on 4318 599

Councillor Report
Maungaturoto Wastewater
Work has started on the upgrade to the treatment plant
with an all- weather access road. The treated water holding
pond should be complete before Christmas and then the
Membrane Filter will be installed in the New Year. The
treatment will bring the water quality to a level that can be
safely discharged to the river and remain within the NRC
consent.
Maungaturoto Water Supply
Council has been negotiating for some time with Fonterra
to secure additional water sources to satisfy both the needs
of Maungaturoto township and Fonterra. Agreement has
been reached to utilise water from a large dam off Bald
Rock Rd and negotiations on the pipeline route are progressing with landowners. This supply will ensure security
for many years. Ratepayers are not having to pay for this
supply as the additional water is to satisfy Fonterra’s
needs. Work should start on the pipeline in January.
There have been some minor interruptions to supply recently due to work on the pipelines. Hopefully no-one has
been inconvenienced. Councils contractors have rebranded as Downer Edi Water and their vehicles have KDC
and Downer Edi logos.
If you have any concerns please contact either myself or
KDC help Desk 0800 727 059
Roading
While it has been a frustrating few months with the disruption to State Highway 12 Brynderwyn this work is almost
complete. I know many have questioned the need for this
work but NZ Transport Agency (formerly Transit) has assured council the benefits are worth the expense. In a few
months we might have forgotten what the old road was like!
NZTA have indicated they are spending a total of $10 million on the first 20km of State Highway 12. That’s almost to
Paparoa! And not before time.
By now the work on Golden Stairs/Causer Rd intersection
should be completed. Also starting next year is sealing the
first half of Bald Rock Rd from Highway 1. The remainder is
programmed for the following year.
Council Meetings
Council has held a couple of workshops in Maungaturoto
recently. The topics were aspects of the District Plan review. These are open to the public and some people have
taken time to attend. I think it is good for councillors and
staff to get out of Dargaville on occasion and we welcome
public attendance at these meetings. They are advertised
in local newspapers.

MAUNGATUROTO BOWLING CLUB
The Northland interclub sevens tournament was held over
the three days of Labour weekend. Maungaturoto entered
a men’s team for the first time for many years. They
placed second in the second division.
Tuesday 28/Wednesday 29 October the first club champs
were played when seven women, (the most for quite a few
years) took part in the singles event. The first day four
rounds of the two-life system were played with three players each with one life surviving to play the next day. They
were Margaret Powell, Naira Vaney and Helen Neville. On
the second day Margaret beat Helen to progress through to
the final which was won by Naira. Good to see two firstyear players in Pauline McMurchy and Helen Neville taking
part as both are playing good bowls and either could go on
to win the Northland first-year title later in the season. Also
good to see June McLeod back playing in the club.
Friday 31 October the club ran its annual Kaipara district
championship Trivial Pursuit evening. Eighteen teams of
six took part, with a team called ‘Six of the Best’ consisting
of Vern and Margaret Powell, John and Liz Saunders and
Dave and Vicky Churcher coming through as the champions. A very successful night for the club.
November 1/2 was the weekend for the Mangawhai men’s
two-day Calcutta tournament. We had two teams entered
with one team getting two wins and the other team of Kevin
Flower Lead, Terry McMahon Two, Ron McCallum Three
and Kevin Robinson Skip came second losing to Colin
(Wog) Wintle’s team by one point on the last end. There
was no second prize but by buying themselves in the Calcutta they had a very successful weekend.
Election weekend saw the playing of the men’s championship pairs with six teams entering. Thanks to Ray Hynes
and John Hammond who entered at the last minute,
thereby eliminating a bye. After some very close fought
games on the Saturday two teams were left. Ken Westlake
and Ron McCallum with two lives and Kevin Robinson and
Gerald Barnett with one life. Ken and Ron ran out the winners on the Sunday after one game of the maximum 18
ends with one life intact. Well done to Ted Mooney who
played with first year player Irwin Van Pelt who only missed
getting into the final on the Sunday by losing the last end
on the Saturday.
The weekend 15/16 saw the Centre open fours played.
One of two men’s teams qualified to go on to the second
day and was knocked out by a Kamo team first game in the
morning.
The women played their handicap singles on Wednesday
12 and finished on Sunday 15 with first-year player Helen
Neville coming out the winner from Naira Vaney.
The women held their junior singles on Tuesday 18 November with four of the seven eligible taking part. Naira
came out the winner from Helen with two lives intact.

Newbould a surprise winner of the girls’ Rod
Dixon Mile
Cashmere High’s Hannah Newbould pulled off a surprise
victory, drawing on her reserves and edging past Villa
Maria’s Nicki McFadzien as the pair sprinted down the final
straight of the girls’ Rod Dixon Mile at Otamatea High on
the Saturday of Labour Weekend.
Olivia Burne (Palmerston North Girls’ High) was a clear
third after being handily placed for three-and-a-half of the
four laps.
World Secondary Schools Cross-Country Champion
Esther Keown (Auckland Girl’s Grammar) finished a dejected fourth after looking strong, tucked in behind the leaders for most of the race.
At the Secondary Schools’ World Cross-Country Championships, in the Czech Republic in April, Keown won two
golds: one for her individual win and the other as a member
of New Zealand’s winning team, along with Newbould in
fourth place, McFadzien sixth and Burne twelfth.
In the Rod Dixon Mile, Mahurangi College’s Kim Burke, a
Year 10 student, ran well to gain fifth place, just behind the
world champions and ahead of Hannah Farrow
(Christchurch Girls’ High) and Ripley Dean (Otamatea
High).
Mount Roskill Grammar School’s Tadele Haimanot, who is
coached by Olympic marathon bronze medallist Barry
Magee, won the boys’ mile from Northland’s best, Ryan
Smith (Whangarei Boys’ High).
Otamatea High’s Trenton Powell dug deep to head off
Whangarei Boys’ High’s Aaron Millar on the line, finishing a
meritorious third in the talented field.
Fifty-one year-old retired farmer, Ian Calder, who had
been given a “special entry” into the race, finished fifth, with
Dean Kingi coming home strongly in sixth place.
Running the mile proved to be an excellent “sharpener” for
Otamatea High’s road race four days later. Trenton Powell
smashed the long-established boys’ record with Dean Kingi
running an excellent third. And in the senior girls’ race,
Ripley Dean came home strongly to take first place ahead
of Samara Foster.
World champion, Esther Keown, was gracious in her defeat despite her disappointment, and texted the following
message afterwards, “Thanks a lot – that was a shocking
race for me but an awesome event – thanks so much.”
Otamatea High and Athletics Whangarei thank the sponsors. “A big thank you to the Skin and Vein Clinic, Whangarei, for the sponsorship that made it possible to bring the
World Champions to OHS,” says organiser John Perry.
“Thanks as well to Maungaturoto Pharmacy, Compass
Computers, Dr Denise Limby, Smiths Sports Shoes, Sports
Performance Massage, & Colin Smith’s Auto Services,”
