Champion shearer John Kirkpatrick continued to show advancing years are no bar to winning form as he won the Wairarapa A and P Show Open final on Saturday.
The 49-year-old’s third win in a fortnight came in four-man final in which there were two heir apparents who were yet to be born when Kirkpatrick had his first Open final win 25 years ago, also at the Wairarapa show.
The Hawke’s Bay gun has now had at least 183 wins in the top class, including 8 in the Wairarapa final, while runner-up David Gordon, of Masterton, and fourth-placed Paraki Puna, of Napier, had had had just one Open final appearance between them.
They reached the final after the surprise semi-final eliminations of 2019 New Zealand team members Cam Ferguson, of Waipawa, and David Buick, of Pongaroa.

Switch to LEDs for the climate

Andrew Caseley from Gen Less

Kahutara Primary School in Featherston is switching to LEDs. All LEDs are Gen Less bulbs as they use less energy, which ultimately helps halt climate change. If we all got on board and switched now it would make a huge difference

For the month of November, we want to raise awareness and work together to end all forms of violence including family harm, elder and child abuse, sexual assault, gang violence, and more. These victimisations affect us all and can have lasting effects that spill into our everyday lives including at work and school.

To do your part this month, perhaps consider supporting a women’s refuge or work with Police in your area to host an info night on how to identify elder or child abuse in your community. This month’s campaign also coincides with White Ribbon Day on 25 November which is an internationally celebrated day that aims to prevent violence towards women.

Let us know how you’re spreading the ‘It’s Not OK’ message in your home or in your community by tagging us in your posts + using the following hashtag so we can see what you get up to:
