Photo: KRISTINA RAPLEY Some people think he s nuts, but Warren Roberts insists he s just got the bug . The Howick antiques col- lector has been searching for old treasures since he was 12, and wife Helen is in on the chase too. It s a bit like gold fever, it really gets you, he says. It s the thrill of the hunt, trying to find your next item to better your collection or finding something you don t have, wife Helen Cater says. They would hate to calcu- late how much time they spend researching, trading and shopping for items but their 4000-strong collection is an indication that it s a lot. Mr Roberts is a member of the Auckland Historical Bottle Collectors Club and is organising the 36th National Antique Bottle & Collectables Fair this weekend. The event is at ASB Stadium in Kohimarama and will see collectors from the United States, the Falkland Islands and Australia as well as enthusiasts from all over New Zealand exhibiting. The show moves around New Zealand every year and the last time it was in Auck- land was 2007. There will about 100 exhibits for the public to view and more than 70 dealers selling their antiques, retro and collectable items. Mr Roberts says prices will range from a few dollars a piece to a few thousand dollars. Its the largest event of its kind to be held in Auckland. He says it s always lovely to see the older people coming through and reminiscing about items they remember from their childhood. It s a really unique oppor- tunity to see the social his- tory of Auckland. The fair runs from 10am- 4pm, April 23 and 24, at the ASB Stadium on Kohimarama Rd. Entry for adults is $5 and accompanied children are free. There will be a cafe with refreshments available both days. Heroic deeds and sacrifices recognised When we hear the word hero we all think of dif- ferent things -- perhaps Superman, Wonder Woman, or Batman. Or if we dig a little deeper, perhaps a war veteran, the local fire brigade or even our own father. The truth is, through- out history real men and woman have stood in the gap and become real heroes. They may never have outrun a speeding bullet or leapt a tall building in a single bound , but the actions they took made a crucial difference in the lives of others. This, of course, is what a hero really is. A hero is a person who, despite race, class or personal circumstance, is pre- pared to rise above the fear and make a sacrifice for the betterment of his or her fellow man. This Easter, City Impact Church presents Portrait Of A Hero . Starting with the recent devastation of the Christchurch Earth- quake, and the heroes that pulled so many from the rubble, Portrait of a Hero pays tribute to those ordinary people throughout history who rose above their fear to do extraordinary things. We meet Charles Upham, the only foot soldier ever to receive the Victoria Cross twice, and Tarore, the little Maori girl whose death prompted an incredible act of forgiveness and the eventual salvation of many. Enter also John Huss, a university pro- fessor from the Dark Ages who was stripped of his status and put to death for his beliefs. These are numbered among many who paid the ultimate price to pre- serve that which was most important to them. They lost their lives because they refused to deny their morals, beliefs and faith. Easter is the cel- ebration of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who came into the world for one reason, to make a sacrifice that no other could make. He laid down his life as a ransom for all mankind, and rose again, conquer- ing over death. Join City Impact Church for Portrait of a Hero as they pay tribute to the heroes of our time and remember the ulti- mate hero -- Jesus Christ.
