The pair hold some of the 290 dolls wearing hand-knitted costumes that Helen made this year. Photo: ALASTAIR PAULIN Pair putting passion into work with threads Knitting for orphans a labour of love By ALASTAIR PAULIN ' A huge thank you for the commitment and love that has gone into your knitting and sewing over the past 10 years. It truly is appreciated and acknowledged by the three countries. ' Faith Wells, Operation Cover-Up co-ordinator When Faith Wells began as the Motueka co- ordinator of Operation Cover-Up 10 years ago, she had little idea it would take 14,637 woollen blankets and pieces of clothing before she would step down. Last Monday was the annual display day of a year's worth of knitting that is destined for children in orphanages in Romania, Ukraine and Moldova. Faith has been organising keen knitters all year and the display showcases the work before it is packed into a container to send to Eastern Europe. But once the ship has set sail, then Faith will too -- at least from her co-ordinator's role. Faith said the gifts were appreciated by the children. It can get down to minus 25 degrees Celsius in Ukraine, and often the orphanages are unheated. She said all the gifts remained the property of the children and that none of the items, shipped in wool bales, had ever gone astray en route. As well as the colourful blan- kets, people have made slippers, scarves, hats, gloves, and socks for children, and this year fabric technology students at Motueka High School made polar fleece clothing as well, bringing the year's total to 1210 pieces. Then there are the dolls dressed in handmade knitted outfits that Helen Bisley produces every year. This year she made 290, which brought her total to 940 dolls over 10 years. Faith had a message for all the people who have helped over the past decade. A huge thank you for the commitment and love that has gone into your knitting and sewing over the past 10 years. It truly is appreciated and acknow- ledged by the three countries.'' Mixed feelings in survey allowing dogs in CBD By CHARLOTTE SQUIRE ' In the end, it is a guide...itwill be up to staff to come up with a recommendation to councillors as to appropriate amendments to the existing bylaw by way of a review. It is hoped that the report will be in front of council before the election. ' Martine Bouillir Tasman District Councillor Figures are in for the Golden Bay survey asking whether dogs should be allowed in the central business district on Commercial St.The question: Should dog owners be permitted to have their dog on a leash in the Takaka CBD during business hours?'' was answered by 182 people in favour of the idea and 190 against. The question: Should dog owners be permitted to walk their dogs on a leash through the CBD after business hours?'' was answered by 259 people in favour and 112 people against. The final question: Should dog owners who walk their dogs around the block -- Commercial/ Reilly/Junction/Motupipi streets -- be permitted to cross the street by the chemist/BP with their dog on a leash to complete their circuit?'' was answered by 219 people who felt it should be allowed at any time of the day; 82 people who felt it should only be allowed after business hours and 68 people who felt it shouldn't be allowed at anytime of the day. In total 404 people made sub- missions. Tasman District Councillor Martine Bouillir said there would be joy and disappoint- ment'' whatever the outcome of the bylaw's 2014 review.
