From Your Mayor

Bush Telegraph - - FOCUS ON FARMING -

Tena ko­tou ka­toa s greet­ings to you all.

The Trust­power Com­mu­nity Awards cel­e­brate our vol­un­teers and Tararua are for­tu­nate to have so many.

Groups en­tered from Tararua, Palmer­ston North and Whanganui, so it was won­der­ful to see Dan­nevirke Cave Dwellers named as supreme win­ners at the re­gional awards func­tion last week.

Con­grat­u­la­tions also to Pahiatua Toy Li­brary, New Pa­cific Stu­dios and Tararua Rid­ing for the Dis­abled, who also won awards on the night.

With so many ac­tiv­i­ties to choose from, there is no short­age of things to do in the up­com­ing school hol­i­days.

We cel­e­brated 125 years of Womenos Suf­frage, mark­ing when the pe­ti­tion for a womenos right to vote was won.

Crso Shirley Hull, Ca­role Isaac­son, Ali­son Franklin and I thor­oughly en­joyed the lo­cal cel­e­bra­tions with Tararua over the Teacups through­out the district.

Every per­son at­tend­ing was cer­tainly proud of our coun­try lead­ing the way.

We shared won­der­ful sto­ries and laugh­ter, and sev­eral schools par­tic­i­pated in a colour­ing com­pe­ti­tion, pro­duc­ing re­mark­ably thought­ful and colour­ful rep­re­sen­ta­tions of the Womenos Suf­frage pe­ti­tion.

Prime Min­is­ter Ardern fea­tured in a cou­ple of posters and one touched us so much that we scanned it, sent it and she was thrilled to re­ceive it.

At re­cent Kapa Haka events in Dan­nevirke and Pahiatua, the level of parental sup­port was fan­tas­tic to see.

The chil­dren ob­vi­ously put tremen­dous amount of ef­fort into their learn­ing and prac­tice.

We have such tal­ented stu­dents and a big thank you goes to all our teach­ers whose ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment is in­valu­able in our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

Noho ora mai s all the best,

Tracey Col­lis
