Photo: WARWICK SMITH Firefighters cut an injured woman free from a car that came unstuck on a notoriously dangerous sweep- ing bend in Halcombe Rd. About 10.30am on Saturday, a man driving a dark-coloured car towards Feilding left the road near the double intersection with Fergusson Rd, less than 1 kilometre from Halcombe. No other cars were involved in the crash. The man and three children in the back seat suffered minor bruis- ing and cuts and a woman was more severely injured. All required hos- pital treatment, Sergeant David Burmeister of Feilding, said. The car had flipped on its way down a gully before landing the right way up. However, it was damaged badly enough that the woman had to be cut free, which took between 30 and 45 minutes. Everyone was belted in, everyone was doing everything right. The car had lost traction in wet conditions on what Mr Burmeister said was a notoriously dangerous corner. On the same stretch of road, Feilding man Faasavili Tinifu, 37, died on December 14, 2010, when he lost control of his car and crashed into a tree-filled ditch.

Photo: SUPPLIED The Halcombe Volunteer Fire Brig- ade and St Michael s Anglican Church Stanway might seem unlikely collaborators but both organisations teamed up at the end of 2011 to form a highly successful fundraising partnership. Recognising the rising demand, and prices, for scrap metal, the duo set about collecting old white ware, agricultural machinery and other junk from around the wider Halcombe/ Stanway region. The scrap drive began in early October with teams of volunteers giving up their weekends and evenings throughout October and November to collect and sort the donated scrap, which was stored in a paddock belonging to the local fire chief prior to collection. In total, more than 20 tonnes of old metal was recycled, including more than 16,000kg of steel, 2500kg of household appliances, 679kg of car and truck batteries and 57kg of copper, with a combined value of $6823.90. This was split equally between the two organisations. Co-ordinators Kevin Darling of the fire brigade and Wayne Short of the church would like to thank members of the community who donated and also the many collectors who worked so hard to make the project such a success.
