- CLUB NEWS
At the June meeting Denise Hydes, the President for the 2021-22 Altrusa year, welcomed the Club members able to attend after memorable days of flooding in the district. Our Changeover Dinner in May at Farmers Corner was a very pleasant and positive event, which instated our new President and Board. Ashburton members and representatives from Christchurch, Timaru and Oamaru Clubs attended. Three members met with the Ashburton District Council Community Services as part of their on-going initiative to co-ordinate and profile local community groups and their projects.
We are assisting the Rotary Community Breast Milk Bank in Christchurch with funding towards a steam mop for hygiene purposes, as this service is also used by Ashburton babies and their mothers when needed.
Following our successful Fabric and Craft Bazaar in April, members used suitable materials left over to sew and press 104 sets of curtains to give to the Ashburton Curtain Bank, to be distributed, through local charity groups, to those who have need for them for winter.
President Roger Paterson welcomed all to the Changeover and Partners’ Night meeting. He introduced twelve members of the Civil Defence team from Christchurch who are staying in Ashburton to assist with the flood relief effort. Their work included welfare checks, food parcels and water which were dropped off to those who needed it.
This included animal welfare support. Rural Support networks play a vital role to those who needed support on farms. Fencing is one of the biggest needs, along with silt deposits. Some families came very close to having water running through their homes, others were not so fortunate. Keeping an eye on one’s neighbours is important; often they won’t ask for help. It was good to hear first-hand insights of the work Civil Defence are doing to assist in Mid Canterbury.
There was a resolution from the Board of a donation of $1844.37 to the Ashburton Senior Citizens Trust for a new audio system (TV, sound bar, trolley). This Motion was carried.
Max Cawte gave a summary of the recent Talley’s visit, which was well received by those who attended. Talley’s are active in investing in Mid Canterbury and well worth a visit.
Graham Smith reported that the planning for the Big Smoke vs Rural Folk evening is progressing well, Life’s Worth Living and the Big Little Theatre Company are the beneficiaries of this year’s event.
A Toast to Lions International was given by Graham Smith. There are 46,000 clubs internationally, totalling 1.4 million members. 9,500 of the members are in NZ, 1,220 in our local District 202j, of which 485 are in our local zone, which is made up of nine clubs. District Treasurer Meredith Lowe replied to the Toast. He added that Lions Clubs International has its Head Office in Chicago, with three offices in the Asian region.
It has just 225 paid employees worldwide in Lions Clubs International, so it is overwhelmingly reliant on volunteers.
Entertainment for the evening was expertly provided by a local trio called The Entertainers with pieces such as Sweet Caroline, Ten Guitars and Peaceful Easy Feeling, all of which had the audience’s feet tapping.
Lions Chevrons were awarded to Tony Adams & Colin Morgan – 10 years of service; Murray Bonnington & Steven Thomas – 15 years; David Stewart & Brent Read – 30 years; Garth Madden – 45 years. Rex Whiting was awarded post humously for his 25 years of Lions involvement.
Brent Read received special commendation. Brent joined Lions in 1990 of which 16 years has been with 100 per cent attendance. He attends most if not all projects & social evenings and the award was made in acknowledgement of his leadership and commitment.
George Brown presented Marion Brown with a Lions Good Sorts Award. George noted her extensive involvement in Girl Guiding and the A & P Association. Graham Edge presented in his capacity as a Trustees of the Lloyd Morgan Charitable Trust (LMCT) in acknowledgement of the late Rex Whiting for his substantial involvement in Lions. Rex will be noted on the Lions Honour Roll.
The LMCT has made a $8000 emergency grant to the District in light of the recent flooding. Roger Paterson presented his President’s Report, reflecting on the many highlights of past year. He acknowledged the passing of Lions Rex Whiting and Graeme Hathaway. Christine Stewart, District Governor Elect, presented the new office holders for 2021-22 year.
Ashburton Golf Club
By all accounts the course has pulled up very well after the recent deluge, thanks again to Ben and all the gang.
I have said it many times before, but we are truly blessed to have such a passionate greens team, and it certainly shows out on the course. Well done one and all.
On that, we can all help keeping the course in great condition. Carry a bucket of sand to fill in divots and repair any pitch marks on the greens. Even if you didn’t make them, if you see one, please repair it. The sooner it is repaired the quicker it will recover.
On the playing front. Jamie Stone led the way in the Champs round 3 qualifier with a superb net 70. Great score off the back tees on a chilly day. Runner-up was Ken Clucas with 71 and Josh Coyle rounded out the top three with 72. The final of the Newton trophy was completed alongside the stroke round, and with Ken getting second in the stroke it is no wonder that he and Lefty May were victorious over Steve McCloy and Stephen Lee. Lefty was telling everyone who would listen, and anybody else who was not listening, that he single-handedly prised the trophy out of their opponents’ hands, and that Ken was only there to mark the card. Oh well, hopefully next year this will catapult them to winning a proper trophy.
I am told that the delayed final of the Watson Cup will be finished off on Friday.
Next Saturday we have qualifying for the Presidents Trophy. This is a stroke round off the white tees, with the top 16 getting themselves into match play for the next 4 weeks. Get yourselves down give it a go, but if you cannot make all the match play dates, please let Matt know so he does not put you in the draw.
We have the inter provincial meeting tonight (Wednesday) at 5.30pm. We have a few jobs that we need to get names for. Please come along and offer your services or just have listen to what is going on. It is going to be a great event for the Golf club, for Ashburton town and Aorangi district, come and be a part of it.
See you around the course.

Wakanui WI members met at the home of Janet Butterick for their May meeting presided over by Julianna Protheroe.
Motto for the month was – No-one is perfect, that’s why pencils have erasers!
Correspondence included the Federation Newsletter and from NEC – Minutes of the 2020 AGM and the NZWI Annual Report and subjects for discussion at the 2021 AGM.
Members moved a donation of $100 be made to the Ashburton St John. Wakanui WI will be supplying afternoon tea for the Ploughing Match at Wakanui on 13th June.
Clair West and Anne Copland will supply flowers for the Hospital this month.
Members discussed the Subjects for Discussion to be asked at the AGM in Wellington which will be attended by Dianne Carter, Sue Kent and Margaret Cullimore.
Jackie Girvan was our guest speaker for the afternoon, and she explained about the Community Housing Scheme in Ashburton. She told how accommodation was very hard to find at the moment and older people who had never owned their own homes were struggling to find rental houses. Ashburton Housing and Support Trust are addressing this issue and plan to build 17 houses in Mona Square where the Council has leased the land to the Trust for 50 years. Members agreed that Jackie was a very informative and interesting speaker.
Next meeting June 23 will feature a film at the Regent Cinema.
