Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Patients at Te Omanga Hospice will have their days brightened by new hand-made quilts for their beds. Members of Pinestream Quil- ters have teamed up with Thimbles & Threads for the proj- ect to replace existing well-used quilts. Each new quilt was made extra wide and polyester filling was used for easy laundering. Owner of Thimbles & Threads Sharon van der Gulik and Marga- ret Davidson are the charity quilt co-ordinators at Pinestream. The hospice has 10 beds so the group decided to provide 12 quilts to allow a couple of spares. The project was a joint effort between the club and Thimbles where several work days were held. Several members also donated quilts they had already made. The quilts are a variety of colours with several in masculine tones. Outdoor inspiration By JIMMY NESS From gun safety to bush survival, the New Zealand Deerstalkers Association and the Mountain Safety Council are helping people to enjoy the outdoors. The Hunter National Training Scheme runs over several weekends in September and teaches skills such as outdoor navigation, hunting techniques, photography, first aid and more. Senior instructor Gerry Veugelaers has been hunting for 30 years and says a similar course inspired him to start the hobby. We make sure people can enjoy their sport safely. To actually get out there and experience the outdoors is amazing. I got into it, back when Iwas13.Isawsomeofthevery predecessors of this course advertised in Wellington. The course includes a four-day introduction around Kaitoke and several nights in the bush. Hunt- ing ethics are also included, such as game management and avoiding trespassing. New Zealand Deerstalkers Association member Gary John- son says the course is a great idea. It s a positive thing, he says. The classes are open to anyone aged 16 and older. Contact the New Zealand Deerstalkers' Association at email@example.com or on 971 3649.
