Farm Jam 2020 date is set! - 14th Jul 2019

Farm Jam 2020 date is set!

Farm Jam began in 2008 on the Frew brothers’ 2,600-acre sheep farm in Otapiri Gorge, Southland, NZ. From its humble beginnings it has rapidly grown into a bucket-list event for two-wheeled action-sports athletes, attracting some of the world’s biggest names in BMX, FMX and MTB. The “jam” formats see each sport judged solely by the riders, with significant emphasis placed on judging riders from other disciplines. Thousands of spectators flock to the highly-anticipated event that was held annually until 2014 and now held every 2 years. An event not to be missed! 

Winton Rotary Annual Fertiliser Fundraiser - 12th Jul 2019

Winton Rotary Annual Fertiliser Fundraiser

The annual fertiliser drive for Winton Rotary Club is on again. See the attached photo for more details. Orders and payments can be left at the Winton Pharmacy up to Tuesday 6th August. Delivery will be Saturday 10th August.



Exciting times are just around the corner for flower lovers and designers in Winton.Central Southland Floral Art Club is delighted to have top International designer MARK PAMPLING scheduled to visit in early August to share his knowledge with them and present a public demonstration.

Mark is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary floral designers.  In addition to being the co-owner of Astonville Florist in northern New South Wales, he’s a busy TAFE teacher, floral demonstrator, accredited floristry judge and current president of Interflora Australia – roles which take him all around Australia as well as to Asia, Europe and USA.  He has been awarded the Interflora Australia Cup on many occasions and has competed in prestigious international competitions and exhibitions with numerous Gold Awards, Best in Show, Design Innovation Awards and Creativity Awards being gained.  He’s a regular contributor to floral design publications including the acclaimed International Floral Art, UK-based Fusion Flower magazine and more recently became a member of the elite FLOOS team, an on-line educational website for florists and floral designers.

Mark has become known for his “structural” approach to designing with technique and “craftsmanship” being important elements in his bid to showcase plant material and make it the “star” of each artwork.  He will be demonstrating some very different ways of using our local botanical materials in his presentations. “We anticipate seeing him work with crisp lines and exacting techniques,” says Convenor Rhonda Hall. “Expect an evening of dynamic designing. This will appeal to all who appreciate art and natural materials, not just floral designers,” she said.

The Mark Pampling demonstration is entitled “Irregular Moments” and is at the Central Southland Presbyterian Church Complex in Winton on Thursday, 1 August 2019 starting 5.30pm. Tickets are $45 (includes light refreshments) and available from Rhonda Hall on (03) 2367157.

The day following the Demonstration, Club members and floral designers from around the South Island will explore new possibilities and learn new techniques during two Workshops tutored by Mark.
