A Banner organised by HQ Wellington to promote the NZ Federation of Country Women's Institute and to be passed from federation to federation during this 75th Jubilee Year. The Banner was launched at the Whangarei AGM. The Poverty Bay Federation transported it by boat up the World's shortest river, the Turanganui River, to the Marina Jetty to be handed over to Hawkes Bay Federation President Barbara Elliott who will pass it on etc. The banner will end up in Wgtn for Conference in July.

Ross Glover formerly of Valley Road Gisborne moved to Tauranga many years ago. He and his son David now live at Pakuranga and enjoy reading the Gisborne Photo News. David responded to our request for photos of expatriot "Gisbornites" David recently became Champion of Champions (U/15yrs) at the ArrowHead Archery Club's competions, East Tamaki, Auckland.


11year old Daniel Cornwall of Motu recently won the Bunyans Saddlery Improvers Trophy at the Gisborne Pony Club Sports for the most improved rider of the season. Daniel and his pony Hori were in their first competetive season. This recognition of potential must have given Daniel confidence as he has since won events at A&P Shows in Dannevirke, Hastings and Wairoa.


Because of extremely difficult sea conditions the Waikanae - Wainui Relay swim was altered to a series of laps off the beach and around bouys in the relatively sheltered Poverty Bay. The same distance was covered in safety.

Editor's note: Sharp photos are required.
