These days property developers will subdivide a cabbage patch for the mighty dollar. Let s stop the clutter of houses and turn off the earthmoving machines before we run out of space to stand! ROWENA SIMPKISS, Timberlea What about KEV ladies? I noted a letter to the editor thanking those who contributed to the success of Poppy Day. Nowhere was there any mention of the KEV ladies. Every year these women gather and put rosemary ( and then there s rosemary, that s for remembrance, pray love, remember -- Shakespeare) and poppy sprays together. Every Anzac Day these women place the sprays on the graves of the fallen in their particular township or city. This year Akatarawa Cemetery had 815 graves to be honoured. Most of the ladies are between 80 and 90-plus years of age. Their husbands and brothers are among the dead in every cemetery in the land. In so many cases, their grief must be deeper and more poignant than those who mourn their comrades. These women mourn loved ones. In most years, the Upper Hutt women are assisted in the gift to our Anzacs by Guides, Scouts or as it happened this year, by students from St Patrick s College, Silverstream and a pupil from Heretaunga College. The St Pat s boys read a poem, the Last Post was played and a wreath of remembrance laid. Anybody visiting the graves on Anzac Day or in the following week couldn t help but notice the poppy sprays. It is a reverent and important tribute done willingly, in any weather and deserves some recognition. CHRISTINE HAMMOND, Upper Hutt Anzac Day thanks The organisers of the Spirit of Anzac would like to thank all the people and organisations that supported the event. It was fantastic to see the CBD come alive with live music, storytelling and displays. Buttercup Bakery, Mayfair Cafe, Cafe Romeo and the library all provided excellent venues for the storytelling. Jina s, Chaplow s and Mayfair Cafe also provided displays in their shop windows. These retailers all showed their heart and community spirit by supporting the event. The Trentham Military Camp archives office was hugely supportive as well. Thanks must also go to the speakers who bravely shared their life stories and experiences of wartime. The stories touched and moved those that heard them. The stories can be heard again by accessing the recordings in the city archives at the library. We look forward to holding something similar again in the future. BERYL HARRIS, Upper Hutt Seniors Action Forum and VIRGINIA BARKER, Upper Hutt City Council Good samaritan My sincere thanks go to the kind lady who helped my husband after his fall near the zebra crossing at the southern end of Upper Hutt on Saturday week. The lady saw him fall as she drove over the crossing and thoughtfully drove on around the roundabout to come back and park alongside. She then helped my shocked husband to his feet and drove him back home. I would have liked to thank her personally but now hope instead that she reads this letter of appreciation. JEAN RAMMELL, Wallaceville Thanks to businesses Recently Silverstream Bowling and Petanque Club held a very successful mini fair and garage sale, raising over $4000 for the new watering system for the greens. We would like to thank the businesses and individuals who kindly donated goods and time, and to everyone who attended the event. We would like to extend a special thank you to Margaret Opray who worked tirelessly to organise this event. MARY SUE SEVERN, Upper Hutt
