The Palmerston North Hot Rod Club is hosting its 41st annual Swap Meet at Manfeild on August 4. Photo: BOBBIE NICHOLLS By BOBBIE NICHOLLS Palmerston North Hot Rod Club's (PNHRC) first swap meet was held in 1971, selling spare parts out of car boots in Palmerston North Square. On August 4, the PNHRC's 41st swap meet at Manfeild will be attracting rodders'' and their famil- ies from all over the North Island. Steadily over the years the swap meet has grown, and in 2008 the club moved the event to Manfeild, where the new stadium enabled the trade stalls to be under cover. This year nearly 30 trade stalls selling goods associated with the sport will be in the stadium and the public viewing of cars and selling of ''spares'' will be in the Manfeild car park. It has become the traditional meeting-place for rodders looking for bargains and drooling over other people's precious cars. Anyone can join the club, but in order to qualify as a hot rod, their vehicle must be pre-1948, or an American of any vintage. Kevin Long's beloved 1957 Chev 4-door hard top with a 327 V8 engine is used as a family car, hav- ing an outing at least once a week. Kevin Martin owns an unusual metallic blue 1935 Chev Junior, which he says has been lowered and loved''. It has a Jaguar differen- tial and a Toyota Lexus engine. When eight-year-old Bryn Martin was asked if he liked the car -- his response was of course''. "We could not run such a large event without a lot of help from the community," club representative Kevin Long said. Local Lions Clubs and Manfeild staff help with organ- ising the car parking, which can be a major headache for an event that attracts thousands of spectators in hundreds of cars. Entertainment is also important and this year the Feilding Fire Brig- ade crash team will be demonstrat- ing the jaws of life by opening up a vehicle to access a trapped passen- ger. Feilding High School's music department will be showing their diversity all day with seven or eight groups showing their expertise. The school has offered two jazz bands, two rock bands, a swing band, their well known ukulele band, and a 15-member concert band plus poss- ibly a singing group. The organisers are impressed with the line-up the school is able to offer and are hoping everyone will find something to suit their taste. "This is a family occasion," Mr Long said. "We want everyone to have a good day." Trade Aid aids Christchurch, seeks volunteers Trade Aid Feilding's connections with Christchurch are being strengthened this month with volunteers knitting garments for those in need in Christchurch this winter. Already a small box of knitted hats and gloves has been sent to a Christchurch Maori health organis- ation, through contacts from the Trade Aid head office, which is based in Christchurch. Christchurch is also the home of the Trade Aid movement. Donna Mita, executive officer of Kakakura Health Services, says the woollen gloves and hats that were donated were really appreciated. The aroha in which they were given is truly appreciated and returned in grateful thoughts and words.'' Trade Aid Feilding is running a two-week in-store knitting pro- motion where current and prospec- tive volunteers and customers can come along and join in the knitting, making several more useful items to send to Kakakura Health Services. Along with a bitterly cold June, including the coldest day on record, many Christchurch residents are living in draughty broken homes as a result of the quakes. Small ges- tures such as knitted items turn into important symbols of solidarity. Trade Aid Feilding, along with the other 28 Trade Aid shops around the country, still gathers groups of volunteers together to strengthen the fair trade movement. The Feilding branch of the organ- isation has about 30 volunteers but wants to attract more people to the wide variety of work available. As well as retail work and the administration required to run the shop, education volunteers speak to local community groups and school classes. They also organise and run events which are aimed at promoting trade justice. The knitting sessions started at the Feilding shop on Monday and will run until Friday, July 27. Trade Aid invites everyone who is interested in learning more about Trade Aid, to pop in during this time.
