The Rangiora Community Choir,
which started life three years
ago as an adult choir run by the
Dale Hartley School of Speech
and Drama, is now a non-profit
organisation in its own right.
With the help of a grant from
the Waimakiriri District Creative
Communities NZ, the choir is
running a variety concert to
fundraise for a much-needed
electric piano, which will prove
invaluable for the group's
rehearsals and performances.
Spokesman Russell Hartley
says the choir will perform
choral music and will be
supported by Toot 'n Croon

School adult tap dancers, the

Who? Me? A five-month-old sphynx
kitten at the Kaiapoi Cat Show.
Despite the recent controversy
about the advisability of keeping
cats, their reputation as predators
and reasonable concerns about
their effects on native wildlife,
there are a lot of people out
there who are enthusiastic about
their feline pets or their cat
Cat shows do not have the
same high profile as dog shows,
but they do have a significant and
Modern cat shows started in
London in 1871. In the United
States, the CFA (Cat Fanciers'
Association) started in 1906 and
has been organising cat shows
Although the structure and
rules are similar, cat and dog
shows can be as different as the
personalities of the cats and
If you ever go to a cat show,
you'll probably notice the quirky
atmosphere, complete with
customised cat cages.
Cat shows are pretty interesting
and the occasional spooked-cat
escape may provide a diversion.
Even if you do not plan to enter
your cat into the competition,
attending a show is a unique
experience where you can see
beautiful specimens of different
breeds and learn more about cats
Cats and kittens, long and
shorthair, pedigree and household
pets, will be on display all day on
June 16, from 9am to 4pm, at the
Kaiapoi Club Riverview Lounge.
Judges from the US, Estonia and
New Zealand will also be making

mouse at home though.

Scouting in New Zealand began in 1908, with
evidence that the first group was formed in
Canterbury and spread rapidly throughout
Today, there are more than 16,000 scouts in New
Zealand and this number is growing every day.
The movement aims to equip young people aged
6 to 26 with life skills including problem-solving,
teamwork, citizenship and healthy living, and provide
them with access to a large range of outdoor
activities including specialised caving, photography,
flying, canoe and snow schools.
This year, the 20th New Zealand Scout Jamboree
will be held at Manfeild Park in Feilding, with off-site
activities being held around the Manawatu region. It
has played host to a Jamboree before, but has since
undergone a major development project.
This Jamboree will be an extension of the Scout
Troop programme and aims to showcase the Patrol
system in operation -- empowering our youth.
The Jamboree gets scouts to participate in a myriad
of activities that may not be available in their normal
troop, meet scouts from around New Zealand and the
world, and live together in a tent city, taking
responsibility for themselves and other scouts.
