    Waverley FunsticksThe first session of the Waverley Funsticks hockey programme was held on Tuesday 17th

    May. There has been a fantastic response to the programme with 37 registered participants for the first block of sessions. The programme is run with the support of Hockey Taranaki and it was great to have Joanna Scott, the regional development manager, come down from New Plymouth to help get the first session underway.

    The Funsticks programme is designed to introduce new players to hockey with the emphasis being on a fun experience. A number of activities are set up to work on fundamental skills with a fun game being held at the end of the session.

    A big thank you to the parents who jumped in and helped out for our very first busy session! We are all volunteers so any help is welcome and appreciated. Lets make this a success for the children in our community while also making use of our local facilities.

    New exhibition opens at Aotea Utanganui: do you know the story

    of transportation in South Taranaki?Across the Centreline is an exhibition experience exploring the history of transportation

    in the South Taranaki district over the last 120 years. This exhibition showcases heritage photographs, moving image materials and social history items telling the story of the changing face of transportation and how this affected the work and social lives of our communities.

    This exhibition focuses on specific events and people associated with the transport story in South Taranaki. From the story of the migration of Mori to Aotearoa New Zealand as they arrived by waka to the saddle and harness shop established by James Graham in Ptea in 1882 to cater for the increased demand in horse transport, to McCarty & Hunger Ltd which was established in 1878 by Rudolf Hunger and John McCarty as blacksmiths, farriers and wheelwrights; these stories speak to the heart of the rural transport story.

    We also have on show a 1905 Darraq motor car, on loan from Jim Baker, which is a fascinating look into the craftsmanship of vintage vehicles from this era. The future of transportation is also investigated, from the greening of the automobile industry with the introduction of Tesla Motors, and other possible modes of future transport including the flying car.

    This exhibition has been generously funded by the Taranaki Regional Council (TRC). Across the Centreline is now open and runs through until November 2016. Entry is free however koha is always appreciated.

    Patea Squash Club Teams Event Under Way

    Th ursday 19th May saw the fi rst night of the Squash Clubs Team Event get under way. Eight teams of three players each have entered and will all play each other over the next six weeks. By the fi nal night on 30th June we will have found a winner. Th is evening will wind up with prize giving and a supper. Although the team captains have their team sorted, there are always times when players cant make it for various reasons, so anyone keen to put their names on a reserve list can do so by getting in touch with Jenny on 027 556 7134.

    Th e club has been looking at options for continuing in the future, and a meeting was held a couple of months ago to discuss possibilities. Any decisions will need to go through an AGM. Th is is to be held on Sunday, June 12th at 7pm, Squash Club rooms. For the club to carry on we need committee members to run it, so anyone is welcome to come along and put their hands up. If the response is positive we can set the subscriptions for the year and any new members can then join up and have the use of the courts for a year.

    Our mens interclub team have started their competition, playing other clubs around Taranaki. Last year they did very well so hope they can continue their good form this season.

    Patea Lions ClubAs you are aware the Lions have suggestion boxes around town; we are wanting ideas for

    projects for the future. We have the Peter Parsons garden looking good and John Hughes, with the help of Colin Schrader, is tidying up next to the Chemist.

    Lions soups will be starting again on the 10th of June. If you would like soup once a week phone Kay on 273 8661. If anybody has a surplus of veges they would be welcomed and put to good use making soup.

    Lions will be running a Triathlon for children on the 19th of February 2017, ending with a fun day at the Domain.

    We have inducted two new members at our last meeting. New members are welcome meeting are on the fi rst Tuesday of the month, 7pm at Red Rock Caf.

    Prince Phyllis. Th e family of Phyllis wish to thank everyone for their kindness, on the recent passing of a much loved mother and Nana. For the baking,cards,and phone calls, we were surely blessed. To Judy and her staff at Te Mahana, and Dr Maria and the staff at the Patea Health Centre, thank you for all you done to keep Mum comfortable. You were all brillant, and so respectful to Mum and our family. We counted on you all and are so grateful for everything.
