News from First Church

Now Labour Weekend is behind us and summer days are ahead, here’s hoping we can all enjoy the long warm days with freedom of movement and good health,  appreciating all the good things and the beauty that is around us here in the Wairarapa.

Martinborough Golf Report

Another very busy month at the Golf Club which began with the Mens 54/36 Hole Open.  The players had to endure some very windy conditions on the Saturday but fortunately the weather was a lot kinder on the Sunday.  Winners of the 54 Hole Division were:  Best Gross Owen Lloyd, 2nd Troy Shaw, 3rd Paul Hartley, Best Nett Nick Morison, 2nd Richard Mills, 3rd Jason Shaw.  Winners of the 36 Hole Division were:  Best Gross Peter Spearman-Burn, 2nd Thomas Spearman-Burn, 3rd Malcolm Wood, Best Nett Peter Stevens, 2nd Dayle Scrimshaw, 3rd Terry Blacktop.

A ferocious southerly morning is considered merely  ‘a bit nippy’ when the truth is more like brutal. Bloody freezing, in fact. The weather guys may politely blame the wind-chill factor, possibly one of the nastiest phrases invented. At the other extreme, when the sun is smiling the temperatures into submission, it’s ‘not a bad day’. Later on, approaching heat-stroke territory, ‘rather warm’. You don’t say! … Continue Reading
