Hawea people will remember that we lost one of our district’s ‘characters’ in a disastrous fire at Hawea Flat in January.

There will be a community “send-off” for Tom at the Lake Hawea Hotel (restaurant side) on Sunday 29th April starting at 3.00 pm.

Tom Jamieson had lived in our Hawea community for many years, initially in a series of caravans, but in more recent years in a cabin built for him by local friends near the Domain at Hawea Flat.

Tom was a familiar face to many as he cycled twice a week into Wanaka from Hawea Flat for his groceries. He was not a very ‘talkative’ person and seemed gruff and unresponsive to many. However, underneath this exterior he was a likeable character who had lived an adventourous, if lonely, life. 

In a media article in January following the fire that took Tom’s life, neighbouring landowner Peter Ward described him as – “an absolute character – but not keen on talking. If you gave him a wave he would say next time, stop waving to me! He was originally from Scotland and I think he has been around about for 40 years. He was originally in the British Army and served in Northern Ireland and the Emirates. He then moved to New Zealand, working on orchards in Cromwell and retired up to this area. He was a bit of a recluse, but he was kind-hearted.”  (‘Stuff’ 24th January 2018)

OSPRI’s TBfree East Hawea aerial possum control operation was successfully completed on Monday 21st September.
OSPRI’s Southern South Island programme Manager Brent Rohloff said that strict regulations were followed throughout the operation. This included the placement of warning signs at all likely public access points to the area. It is important that the public adhere to the instructions on these warning signs.
“Additional dog warning signs have been put in place at access points to Lake Hawea frontage. This additional signage is to make dog owners aware of the potential risk of carcasses washing down onto the shore and enabling them to keep their dogs safe” said Mr Rohloff. It will not be safe to take dogs into the operational area until all of the warning signs have been officially removed.
The East Hawea operation covers approximately 880 hectares and supports a large-scale ground-based control programme in the area, using traps and hand-laid toxins. Possums are the main carrier of bovine TB and may spread the disease to livestock in surrounding farmland if they are not effectively controlled.
OSPRI helps protect and enhance the reputation of New Zealand’s primary industries. It currently runs the NAIT and TBfree programmes.
