Family need chairing up By CARLY TAWHIAO Lost chair: Theo Rutten was playing on his wooden chair, a hand-crafted heirloom made by his great-grandfather in Holland. Moments later it was left unattended and it was taken. The accidental loss of a family heir- loom has a Mt Albert family desper- ately seeking its return. At the start of the month, three- year-old Theo Rutten was playing outside his Seaview Tce home on his small wooden chair. It is an antique item that was hand-made by his great- grandfather in Holland and passed down the generations. The chair was momentarily left alone on the street's grass berm and in the space of about 20 minutes it was gone. Theo's parents Thom Rutten and Kathleen Becker believe it was picked up by someone assuming it was rubbish, but in fact it has huge sentimental value. This is very sad for my husband as it was something of a family heir- loom,'' Ms Becker says. His granddad made it for his dad when he was a child and it has been passed down to our son for him to use. Unfortunately someone has come along and thinking it was thrown out and taken it home with them. It was our mistake for leaving it out on the road but it would mean the world to have it back.'' The chair was once painted but has been stripped back and varni- shed. The restoration was recent and it still has the original paint on the underside of the seat. Both arm rests and the back are a little bit loose,'' Mr Rutten says. I felt a little bit sick with the realisation that I left it out there. It was something that I really loved.'' The couple has done a letter drop and put posters up around the neighbourhood. If anyone knows the whereabouts of this lost heirloom they can return it with no questions asked or call 021-293-7839 for more information. Vicelich's supreme award By JEREMY RUANE It was a hugely successful night for football at the Sport Auckland Sport- ing Excellence Awards earlier this month. Sportsman of the year winner Auck- land City captain Ivan Vicelich also collected the supreme award for sport- ing excellence. The All Whites defender was in good company in the winners' circle, with Auckland City FC named sports team of the year for the second time in five seasons, and Mike Hester was named the best referee for the second success- ive year. Vicelich says he's delighted to receive such prestigious awards. It's another proud honour in what has been a hugely memorable year, both personally and team-wise. It was very special to lead Auckland City in last year's Fifa Club World Cup finals and throughout a championship campaign in which we lost just one match prior to the playoffs.'' The 34-year-old Sandringham resi- dent says he couldn't have done it without his teammates. It's tremendous for the club, which has achieved so much in such a short period of time.'' Vicelich recently returned home after fulfilling a short-term contract with Shenzhen Ruby in China. City's triumph in the sports team category recognised their achieve- ments in Abu Dhabi a year ago, where the amateur club defeated two profes- sional teams from the United Arab Emirates and Africa, en route to finishing fifth at the 2009 Fifa Club World Cup finals. Meanwhile, Hester is preparing to officiate at the competition's 2010 ver- sion, so wasn't on hand to receive the top referee award.
