Brian Mexted, 82, belongs to an early Tawa Flat farming family which went on to produce two All Blacks, Graham and Murray, as well as prominent local business Mexted Motors. Mr Mexted's entertaining, anecdote-filled speech to the Tawa Historical Society in 2009 sparked the idea for the book, Memories of Tawa Flat, 1928-1958. Local historian Michael Steer spent two years recording Mr Mexted's memories of his school days, Tawa's social life in the 1930s and 1940s, and the suburb's colourful characters and sporting clubs. The book is full of photographs and stories, and people attending the book's launch can expect extra tales from Mr Mexted, who now lives in Paraparaumu and organ- ises lectures for the University of the Third Age. Memories of Tawa Flat, 1928-1958 book launch, Wednesday, April 10, 6pm at Mexted Motors, 145-151 Main Rd, Tawa. Signed copies of the book will be available for $20.

For more information and to donate, visit www.kidscan.org.nz By CHLOE WINTER Every one of the 170 pupils of Cannons Creek School will be able to cuddle up in a home- made scarf this winter, thanks to the generosity of some local ladies. The ladies are members of Prayers and Squares, an inter- national, interdenominational group that make quilts for those in need. The group's administrator, Glenis Rutledge, says they make the scarves from the off-cuts of polar fleece used to back the quilts. The scarves were originally sold to raise funds for the group. But after watching a television programme about decile one schools, they saw a better use for them. These children often have very little appropriate clothing for the cold months of the year, so the scarves may keep them a little warmer,'' Mrs Rutledge says. School principal Ruth O'Neill is grateful for the scarves, especially given there is one for every child. I think it will make a big difference. Outside, it will keep them really warm.'' Cannons Creek is a KidsCan school, which means it often needs community assistance, Mrs O'Neill says. We are grateful for all the help we get.''
