During the past month the DOT Kids Early Learning Centre children and teachers have been out and about in the community visiting the Martinborough Library and the residents of Wharekaka where this time, the children tried on some old fashioned children’s clothes. A small group of 4 year olds made regular visits to Martinborough School.

Leading up to ANZAC Day we had discussions on the meaning of ANZAC, made ANZAC biscuits, visited the ANZAC crosses in the Square, and many children, even our youngest baby, attended the local Dawn Service on ANZAC Day. … Continue Reading

Aziel Verner Fundraiser at The Cabbage Tree Vineyard – Sunday 24 May.

June 18, 2015 June 2015 Comments Off on Aziel Verner Fundraiser at The Cabbage Tree Vineyard – Sunday 24 May.

Ian Cresswell was delighted that the fundraising concert he arranged for promising young violinist, Aziel Verner, was such a success. Ian has been a champion of Aziel Verner since he first heard him play in the Martinborough Town Hall as a member of the Wellington Youth Orchestra; he was only eleven. The concert raised $1000 for Aziel’s studies.

Now 18, Aziel treated the audience to a varied programme. All pieces showcased the potential of this aspiring young violinist, in particular, Schubert’s Violin Sonata No 1. The accompanist was Aziel’s equally talented older brother, Asaph. Aziel leaves for Sydney on 31 May for a month’s tuition with his former music teacher before he begins his studies at the Singapore School of Music in July.

South Wairarapa Rotary continues to be heavily involved in the community, not necessarily at the fore, but working tirelessly in the background fundraising or distributing the proceeds from those fundraising activities.

Already this year the members were involved in another successful duo of Martinborough Fairs, the weather as always did threaten and caused one of the two fairs to be closed a little earlier than normal. However stall holders and shoppers had a great time and the South Wairarapa Community will benefit from the proceeds in the long term. … Continue Reading
