ROUGH SAWN OR MACHINED TREATED OR UNTREATEDPhone 4338555 or Email: noelherman@xtra.co.nzWith spring only a month away there's plenty to do in the garden. It's time to start thinking about preparing and planning for spring planting, including sprouting seed potatoes to ensure a Christmas harvest and what better time for a winter tidy up. August is the perfect time to begin sprouting seed potatoes. Most potato crops take about three months to mature, so need to be in the ground in September for a Christmas harvest. Leading up to spring there's plenty to do in the vege garden from planning your crops for the coming season, preparing the soil and planting some cold hardy vegetables. With spring knocking on the door it’s all about the power of the flower. Magnolias, blossom trees, daffodils, tulips and a whole host of flowers are beginning to put on a floral finale to say goodbye to the winter blues. Buds on fruit trees may be starting to plump or fatten up getting ready to burst into blossom as the days get longer and the temperatures warmer. Continue planting strawberries too for a summer harvest. Harvest time is from seedling planting to harvest. For seeds, depending on variety, it will take an extra 6-8 weeks from germination to planting.HIKURANGI RSA & DISTRICTS *ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING *FRIDAY AUGUST 3Oth 2019 @ 4.30pm. *Venue: Hikurangi Bowling Club.

Thank you for your support and donations.Our Condolences Hikurangi Friendship House would like to send these to the family of Albert Hardie and his family for the loss of his wife Joan who has just recently passed away in July. Albert is the Chairperson of the Hikurangi Historical Museum. Also our condolences to the family of Sharon and Tom Kelly whose daughter Vanessa passed away earlier this month.Councilor Greg Martin I always say that Hikurangi should have the same level of service as anywhere else in the district, so I am delighted that Council has finished the upgrade of the tennis courts to a multi-sport facility, including lights. The sewerage upgrades are continuing, with environmental improvements already showing. The drainage of the sports fields that had been deferred is finally going ahead. My aim is to continue improving the level of facilities. Thanks to Friendship House for organizing the painting of the inside of the Memorial Hall. It is looking very smart. Having been involved in Hikurangi with rugby and many community groups, and now with my daughter in law Amy teaching at Hikurangi School, I am able to keep well informed of what’s happening in Hikurangi. Still involved with Lake Waro, I believe the planned improvements there will be enjoyed by our community. To the many people who have called me about problems in our district, thank you for raising the issues to enable them to be dealt with. I am grateful for the support and encouragement I have received to continue with my position on Council. Greg Martin.Music session Tuesday 9.30 to 12.30, Gold coin donation Ph Carolann 021 165 3210 Playgroup Thursday 9.30 to 1 Gold coin donation Ph Sharlene 021 616 75520 George Street, HikurangiBuilding / party hire / After School Care Ph Vicky 021 159 3852Hi all Playgroup sessions have changed. Tuesday from 9.30 is our Music session and Thursday is a normal playgroup session. Work on our kitchen is progressing and should be finished by the end of the year. Morning mums and bubs boot camps have started and we are seeing what support there is for these before we set the days. The instructor Jamiee is awesome and the sessions are interesting and fun. After School care runs week days from 3 till 5.30 and we currently have some spaces available. Don't forget we hire out the building for Childrens parties and there are some spaces during the week days for child related groups. We will need to have a working bee when the weather warms up to finish some outside jobs and tidy up our vegetable garden. If you can spare some time or would like more information phone Vicky on 021 159 3852 VICKY’S KUMARA SCONES Ingredients 1 small / medium kumara boiled Tasty Cheese grated 200gms 1 medium tomato 1 spring onion (optional) fresh herbs (optional) 2 cups of flour 2 tsp baking powder salt and pepper to taste 1/2 tsp paprika 3/4 cup of milk 3 tbs sweet chilli sauce Pre heat oven 220 C Sift dry ingredients, mix in grated cheese, diced kumara, diced tomato, spring onion, and chopped herbs with a knife.

I want to thank all who wished us a speedy recovery. There has not been too much at this time to report. The usual family harm issues have kept us busy. The school holidays have been good as well with not much happening around the town so far. I have dealt with a few crashes on the Highway but luckily nothing too serious. With the weather being a little worse for wear, seems to have slowed down a lot of speeders, which is great as there seems to be a lot of inattention on the roads not just here but around the country. Many serious and fatal crashes. Of late there has been a few Police pursuits a couple around the Whangarei and Far North districts. Which has resulted in the driver being apprehended mostly through crashing. There’s no need for it really, as some could’ve involved innocent members of the public, like recently a pedestrian was killed in Christchurch by a fleeing driver. I have a complaint from the Hikurangi Golf Club about a vehicle that has damaged their gates to get in and drive all over some of the greens. The damage is horrendous, there was some forensic evidence left behind and I am hoping to match these up, at least to get a vehicle make. Also I am checking with CCTV footage. Someone has stolen a parcel off the front door of a resident, who had put it there for a Courier to uplift. It was for charity and a handmade cardigan cream in colour with kiwi’s on it. It’s probably one of a kind and will stand out. I have dealt with a shoplifter who has ripped off the Hikurangi Four Square for nearly $400 worth of goods over a 2 month period. It took a little investigative work to identify her but it was done and she will be facing Court charges, not only for Hikurangi but other stores as well. The power of the CCTV footage doesn’t lie. Senior Constable Russell RawiriWelcome back Russell from Hikurangi Friendship House.Hikurangi Volunteer Fire Brigade“If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.” It is August already and for many of us the start of getting ready for labour weekend and those Christmas holidays that are coming so quickly upon us. Time to start thinking about the boats and trailers, are they safe, do they have warrants, are the toe balls and framework safe. If not, now is the time to book it in and get it fixed please don’t wait till the last moment then take it away unchecked and unfixed cause you run out of time. It can become an accident waiting to happen. Winter is truly here, and the roads are slippery as is the areas around our houses, please take care in these wet conditions. It is a good idea to carry a phone with you so if you fall or slip you have it handy should you need to call for help. With possible high winds at this time of year please make sure everything is held down well outside so it doesn’t become a flying missile in the wind. For all of us who have a fire and burn not just clean wood in it, please think of your neighbours and remember to check what you burn before you put it in. Some of the items people are putting in fires are quite toxic and as such could be doing harm to those around us Remember ashes from a fire can stay hot for a long time please be careful when you dispose of them from your fire place and if in doubt cover them with water to assure they are out. As you use your dryer in this wet weather take time to check the filters are clean and clear and that the hose taking the damp air from the dryer is vented well outside. This will help you keep your house dry and stop the winter ills from dampness. The toxic fumes that can be created from burning not just wood could well be poisoning others and it is not good for your fireplaces health either.
