This Fairlane, owned by Megan Molloy, of Winton, is one of many vehicles
that will be lined up for display in Winton on Sunday in support of the Central
Southland Swimming Pool.
Vehicles of all makes, model,
shape and size will be on show
in both Winton and Te Anau this
The Central Southland Pool
Committee is hosting a
“Motorama” as a fundraiser to
boost the coffers enough to give
the pool a long overdue paint job.
Meanwhile in Te Anau on the same
day, a wheels display is being
organised to welcome participants
in the South Island Tractor Trek for
Cancer Kids into town.
Central Southland Motorama
spokeswoman Maria Scammell
said vehicles from 1908 to 2010
would be on display at Centennial
Park in Eglinton Street from 11am
As many vehicle clubs as possible
had been invited to take part
and anyone with an interesting
vehicle was also welcome to show
their wheels. There is no entry
fee for exhibitors but spectators
will be asked to pay $5 each,
with children primary school age
and younger free. Those who
buy their tickets before the day
will go into a draw to win the
use of a new Honda car for the
weekend, courtesy of Honda Cars
Among the clubs that would be
represented were the Southland
Vintage Car Club, Southland
Jaguar Drivers’ Club, Southland
Mustang Owners’ Club, Invercargill
Street Machines, All British Car
Club, Southland Falcon Car Club
and a variety of other classic,
modern and performance cars.
Mark Colyer would be performing
throughout the day.
Mrs Scammell said pool
committee members were hoping
for strong community support. The
pool was an “amazing facility” but
has been struggling to stay afloat.
Funds were so low that it almost
didn’t open this year, she said.
Tickets for the Motorama are
available from Brent Scammell
Honda, Caltex Winton, the Middle
Pub and Hughes Auto.
Meanwhile, in Te Anau about 70
vehicles will be lined up at Lions
Park to welcome the 40-strong
classic tractor convoy into town.
The display will run from 1pm until
3pm with the tractors due to arrive
about 2pm. They will park up at
Lions Park where people can view
the machines and talk to those
who have driven them the length
of the South Island and back
again during the past two weeks
raising funds for Child Cancer.
Organiser Neil Collinson said the
display would not be your typical
“shine and show” but rather an
assortment of wheeled vehicles in
various states of repair.
“We’ve got a wide range of
treasures coming out of sheds in
Te Anau,” he said.
They included everything from
military vehicles to a 1960s pedal
Te Te Anau Lions club would be
running a barbecue and donations
would also be accepted for Child
Fundraising drives in Winton and Te Anau
A new aquatic toy at the Te Anau Community Swimming Pool proved a big hit for the children celebrating Kaitlyn and
Georgia Mullally’s ninth birthday last week.
The over-sized rubber ring was inflated moments before the twins and their sister Eva, along with friends Lara and
Jacob Robertson, Kate Turnbull, Paige Walker, Eric Johnstone, Daniel Christie, Cheyanne McRae and Sera Cadigan
arrived at the pool for the birthday party last Wednesday.
There was plenty of room for everyone to clamber on and off and all agreed it was great fun. The tube is available for
use during public sessions. The pool will remain open until about Easter.
