    Luxury lodge wins againu by Ayla Miller

    For the fourth consecutive year Waipoua Lodge owners Ian and Fran Farrant have won the Tripadvisor Travellers Choice Award, making the lodge one of the top 25 small hotels across New Zealand and the South Pacific.

    The award is given to the planets top properties based on reviews and opinions collected from travellers all over the world.

    The couple say they are thrilled to have been recognised for the fourth year in a row.

    We are very grateful to all our wonderful guests who have written such lovely reviews about their stay which have made this award possible, said Mr Farrant.

    We concentrate on ensuring they have a memorable experience and the

    Tripadvisor award is an outcome of that. Mr Farrant believes it is a combination of the ambience they create and their property.

    p Steve Davis from Tauranga drove his Land Rover Skippy and Malcolm Lumsden from Ohinewai drove his ex army 109 Land Rover in the Kauri Coast 4WD Club safari with 38 other vehicles from across the country. Starting in Te Kopuru, they made their way around the top of the North raising funds for the Northland Rescue Helicopter. It was a six night event and we stayed at schools and a golf club between Te Kopuru and Kerikeri and drove through beaches, forest tracks and farmland. It was a really great adventure and well worth the effort to get here, said Malcolm.

    p Tourists, Anna, Julie and Rachel Cochrane from Toowoomba Australia, stopped in at the Visitor Information Centre for Dargaville and the Kauri Coast to hunt for mementos to take home and to admire the artfully knitted tree at the front of the building. The three sisters travelled to the Kaipara for a family wedding and enjoyed 12 days of exploring the area, visiting the Waipoua Forest, Maunganui Bluff, Kai Iwi Lakes and many places in between.

    p Volunteer firefighters from Dargaville and Te Kopuru were joined by others across the district attending a fire on the weekend at Pouto peninsula. They utilised portable dams, two helicopters and a bulldozer to help the firefighters control the blaze which was in vegetation.

    Charity storeclosing its doorsu by Ayla Miller

    It is an end of an era for the Save the Children shop in Dargaville as it closes along with all other branches across New Zealand.

    The store will close its doors for the last time on Friday, January 29 after running for 22 years. Initially the shop was located on the corner of Hokianga Road and Normanby Street opening once a month for three hours a day before moving to McKays Arcade in 1998 where it has been ever since.

    Current Save the Children president Aym Wade says the store played an important role in the volunteers lives.

    It was more than just a shop for us for many it was a place for social contact and friendship. Without the shop it will be harder to have a presence in our community.

    I would like to acknowledge all the volunteers who ran this shop successfully over many years.

    The Northern Wairoa Save the Children branch will still exist without the shop and will continue to raise funds by various means to help rebuild lives after disasters.

    Immediate past president Veronica Simpkin says she will be sad to see the shop close.

    It has been very popular with the people of Dargaville. The things we sell are a little bit different to what the other shops sell but times change and, although the people in Dargaville support us, that hasnt been happening all through the country, says Veronica Simpkin.

    We will find some innovative ways to raise funds and hope to have a presence at the Dargaville Riverside Produce Market.

    Over the years of operation the Dargaville shop has
