Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL NEWS -

AN­OTHER suc­cess­ful Thyme Fes­ti­val fin­ished on Sun­day, with the pop­u­lar mar­kets and Tal­ent Thyme Quest. Or­gan­is­ers have deemed the week-long an­nual fes­ti­val a huge suc­cess, with work­shops and events well at­tended. Some of the ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing the week in­cluded a belly-danc­ing work­shop, a bio­di­ver­sity field-trip, choco­late mak­ing, res­i­dent artists in ac­tion and a card­board boat race. The pop­u­lar chil­dren’s po­etry com­pe­ti­tion at­tracted 150 en­tries, with chil­dren chal­lenged to write a poem to fit within a cho­sen shape. The Mir­ror’s Emma Dawe and Aimee Wil­son caught up on some of the events dur­ing the week.

Vic­tory!: The win­ning team in the Junk to Ar­chi­tec­tural Funk com­pe­ti­tion which chal­lenged teams to build a struc­ture from ma­te­ri­als from Waste­Busters. The Cen­tral Otago REAP team, from left, Bernie Lep­per, Jean Sims, Penny Fitzger­ald, Steve Brown, Clair Hig­gin­son, Julie Rus­batch and Ruth Arnott.

On dis­play: Otago artist Juliet Novena Sor­rel was one of six res­i­dent artists dis­play­ing her work and tech­nique dur­ing the fes­ti­val. She is pic­tured with her sculp­ture The Crea­ture.

Go­ing back­wards: Te­gan Chap­man, 8, from Alexan­dra, needs all her skill to ride this bike which needs to be ped­alled back­wards.

Hats off to ya: Jasper Wear­ing, 3, from Alexan­dra won the best hat com­pe­ti­tion at the pre-school mu­sic and move­ment at Pi­o­neer park on Fri­day.
