A vin­tage day out for car en­thu­si­asts

CHB Mail - - NEWS -

A crowd of vin­tage car en­thu­si­asts from as far afield as Auck­land, Whakata¯ ne, and Mart­in­bor­ough trav­elled to Waikareao Sta­tion, Puke­hou, last month as part of the Hawke’s Bay Vin­tage Car Club An­nual Tour.

The weather turned on a pre­fect day for a pic­nic at Waikareao Sta­tion were the crowd learnt about the his­tory of the farm and homestead.

The owners Tr­ish and Steve An­stis, as fairly new owners, asked long-time lo­cal Peter Cole­man to give a talk on the sta­tion’s his­tory.

The crowd en­joyed the park-like sur­rounds of rose gar­dens and or­chards — with the pool sur­rounded by roses.

The Hawke’s Bay Vin­tage Car Club paid to en­ter the prop­erty and Tr­ish and Steve do­nated the pro­ceeds of $550 to the Hawke’s Bay res­cue he­li­copter.

He­len Ball of the HBVCC gave the An­stis’ top marks for all they had done to bring the rose gar­den back to life.

The homestead was look­ing its best for the oc­ca­sion.
