A ONE-OF-A-KIND horse trek through pre-
viously inaccessible farmland is being held next
month to support residents at Hillview Rest Home
in Te Kuiti.
Organised by Allen Juno of Waitomo, the
two-day Ngaroma Trek begins at Mr Juno’s Tol-
ley Rd property and crosses five neighbouring
properties with some bordering the picturesque
Pureora Forest Park.
To be held on February 18-19, the day one
trek is six hours of trekking, taking in some of
the district’s rarely seen views while completing a
full circle from Mr Juno’s property and back home
again for dinner at 7pm
Day two is a four hour trek.
Riders can take part on either of the days for
$100 or both days for $200 (breakfast and dinner
are provided) with 100% of the proceeds donated
“We’ve never run a horse ride up there before,
so it’s on all new territory for the public,” says
“ The ride goes through bush and farms and
up and down hills – a lot of which boarders
“It’ll be something they’ve never seen before.”
WANT TO HELP
In November, Hillview’s Board of Trustees
announced it was experiencing difficult financial
times due to a lull in occupancy and reached out
to the community for help.
Mr Juno says although his uncle Eric Gray and
mother Muriel Juno are Hillview residents, the
fundraiser is to support the entire facility.
“I just want to help the people at Hillview out.
“ They’re struggling a little bit at the moment
and trying to cut costs so if we can make them
a bit of money for the things they need, then
that’ll be great.
“So I encourage people to come along because
they’ll have a great weekend of riding while sup-
porting a good cause.”
Helping Mr Juno with the trek are his wife
Anne, brother Graeme, Gavin Lupton and neigh-
Those taking part are asked to arrive after
3pm on February 17 and to bring somewhere to
sleep (float/tent), cutlery, horse feed and hay, wet
weather gear, cash or cheque book for registra-
tion, a red ribbon for kickers and togs if you want
to swim in the river.

Horse trek for Hillview
THE Otorohanga District Council is dis-
cussing two key issues at present, and
residents are being given the opportu-
nity to have their say via submissions.
Submissions on the proposed $200 mil-
lion dairy factory off Redlands Rd, just
outside Otorohanga, close on Friday
The council received a resource consent
application from Happy Valley Milk Ltd in
November to establish a purpose-built
nutritional infant formula dairy factory
comprising two eight tonne per hour
dryers capable of blending and canning
infant formula and manufacturing Anhy-
drous Milk Fat.
The second, which closes on Febru-
ary 15, is the proposed Easter Trading
Bylaw, which would potentially provide
local businesses with the opportunity to
remain open on Easter Sunday.
For more information about each of
these proposals and how to make a sub-
mission go to – otodc.govt.nz or call into
the council’s offices on Maniapoto St.
EIGHTY-ONE people died from prevent-
able drownings in New Zealand in 2016
according to Water Safety New Zealand.
Of that 81, 17 (21%) of those were the
Waikato region, including one from the
North King Country. Preventable drown-
ings include recreational and non-recre-
ational deaths and do not include those
applicable to the prevention or rescue
efforts of the water safety sector.
The Waikato total is up from 13 in 2015.
ALLEN Juno (centre), with his uncle Eric Gray and mum Muriel Juno at Hillview Rest Home in Te Kuiti, is organising a horse trek next month to
raise funds for the retirement facility.
