Arrowtown Autumn Festival chairman
Lex Perkins said this year's event was
an absolute pleasure. Mr Perkins, the
festival's longest-serving chairman
since the event started 28 years ago,
said Arrowtown was a spectacular,
colourful and special place to host an
autumn festival. Sarah Swale has been
announced as the new festival co-
ordinator replacing Deborah Husheer.
Two Wakatipu eco-warriors have been
honoured for their contribution to
conservation. Nomad Safaris' driver
Fran O'Connor, of Queenstown, was a
member of Eco Action for years before
joining the Wakatipu Wilding Conifer
Group. She is passionate about keeping
Queenstown Hill wilding free and
recently started excavation work to
clear the old site of Coopers Terrace, a
goldminer's hut on the Arrow River. In
Wanaka, retirees John Barlow, Jim
Miller, Eric Latta and Ian Gazzard,
started a predator control programme.
They built and maintain a trapping line
at Diamond Lake for rodents and
possum. Diamond Lake is a nesting site
for the New Zealand falcon.

The volunteers of Frankton Fire Brigade
are used to dealing with challenging
situations but they're hoping a new four-
wheel-drive chase vehicle will make life a
The station's fire truck seats just six people,
meaning volunteers often have to drive
their own vehicles to jobs and a lack of 4WD
capability has seen firefighters resorting to
all sorts of measures to get to accidents,
officer in charge Grant Bewley said.
''We've had a lot of problems getting into
paddocks and up to the Remarkables ski
field in the winter. We've had to have
people meet us in 4WD vehicles and
transfer our gear to get to places.''
Recalling a plane accident at Arrowtown
last year, Mr Bewley said the fire truck got
stuck in a paddock and had to be pushed by
volunteers while another vehicle towed it
''The truck gets knocked around a bit
because it has to go everywhere.''
The new van will provide extra space for
firefighters and gear which will mean
much less hassle during emergencies and
''People have to use their own vehicles and
take car seats out to put gear and hoses in.''
Frankton is also the rescue station for all
road accidents from Lumsden to the top of
the Crown Range and halfway through the
Kawarau Gorge, meaning the terrain can
vary from flat and easily accessible to steep
''We mainly do rescues so we get all the not
so pleasant jobs but it has to be done.''
The aim is to get the new truck, which will
cost $40,000, within the next two to three
months. More than $20,000 has already been
raised and Mr Bewley said a $2000 donation
from the Wakatipu Lions will be used to
purchase communication equipment.
''We give up our time 24/7 so we appreciate
the support of the Lions. It is a huge effort
from these ladies for such a small group.''
