Coastella a hit

LVN250219sbcoastella1

Night falls on the Coastella main stage. By SADIE BECKMAN One of the lower North Island’s most popular festivals went off without a hitch on Saturday in Kāpiti. Coastella brought an eclectic bumper lineup of music and

entertainment to the rolling green grounds of Southward Car Museum in Paraparaumu, with over 3000 people turning up to enjoy the day under perfect sunny skies. While the morning had looked drizzly, and the following day

had a wintery chill hit the country, Saturday afternoon turned on idyllic summer conditions for the boutique festival, founded by local musical promoters Gerry Paul and Paul Brown. Festival goers brought picnic

Levin Red Cross is back in action Levin Red Cross is ready to swing back into action after their hall and facilities were forced to close for earthquake strengthening at short notice more than two years ago. The organisation’s hall at 524 Queen St has undergone a major renovation and building process, but is now ready for use again, by both the Red Cross and the many community groups who rented it out on a regular basis before the closure. The Red Cross thrift shop attached to the hall is also reopening and seeking donations of clean, sellable items but not furniture, to boost its stock. The Levin group’s secretary, Penny Lancaster, said the group was pretty thrown two years ago, when they were given short notice about the hall requiring extensive renovations to bring it up to code in terms of earthquake strengthening. “It was a long and drawn out process,” she said. “But because we are a disaster relief organisation we had to set an example.” Mrs Lancaster said they almost decided to sell the hall, but she was glad the organisation had decided it was better to keep it.

Heather Harvey (left) and Penny Lancaster of Levin Red Cross are pleased the group can reopen its hall and thrift shop after two years of earthquake strengthening.

Committee member Heather Harvey agreed the situation had disrupted not just the Red Cross, but also the community groups using the hall.

“We were quite stressed at the time. It displaced a few groups that used it,” she said. “The hall has been totally redone, the roofing has been

done, total strengthening with girders.” The organisation celebrates this Saturday March 2 when their shop reopens at 9am with

an official opening at 10am with refreshments. The shop will be then open from 9am to 2pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. “The important thing is to let everyone know we are back,” Mrs Lancaster said. She said all were welcome at the official opening. The shop is also seeking volunteers who may be able to take a few morning or afternoon shifts. Contact Penny Lancaster on 021 103 2534 if you may be able to offer some time.

Roving bands and entertainers piqued the interest of punters as they strolled between stages, reusable globlets of craft beer and New Zealand wine in hand. An adults-only after party

held inside the museum’s auditorium hosted the lively sounds of Wellington band The Richter City Rebels, with a strong brass section and New Orleans-style party repertoire. “Once again Coastella

New group set to get ‘dansing’ A new group starting up in Levin will help even those without a musical bone in their body to find joy through singing and dancing, its creator says. Musician Myrna Michell has launched All Dansing and is inviting people to come for “friendship and the joy of dancing and singing in a circle,” she said. Michell is a singer and pianist who founded the Levin Sing Out

Choir, which she led until recently, handing it over and creating her new venture. She arrived in New Zealand in 2014 after a background in the UK as a songwriter and musical director, concert curator and workshop leader. Michell has choreographed dance moves to go with the songs aimed at encouraging a relaxing experience for attendees, who will interact in a circle, which

she says is more friendly and allows people to connect and look each other in the eye. “I don’t know whether Kiwis like to dance in lines or in a circle, but we’ll see,” she said. “The dances are like the offspring of the songs and I aim to include both slow and more flowing dances.” Michell said anyone was welcome at the group, and it didn’t matter if they had no

experience with either singing or dancing. Combining the two aspects together made the concept more comfortable for some and showed the intrinsic nature of the music, hence the hybrid name “dansing”. “It’s gentle exercise and it’s really good for the brain too,” she said. “It’s singing and dancing without being an expert - you don’t have to be perfect.”

The group will be held at Levin’s Thompson House at 4 Kent St, starting this Friday from 7pm to 8.30pm and costs $5 per session, with the first time a gold coin. All Dansing will run for six sessions, and booking is essential to ensure there is enough space, Michell said. ■ Contact levinsongcircle@gmail.com or ph 022 187 7002 for more information.

Cricket teams in brawl to compete again

Doctors take strike action

By PAUL WILLIAMS Two teams involved in a brawl at a Horowhenua-Kāpiti cricket match play each other again this weekend — minus those players currently under investigation. Five players — two from Paraparaumu and three from the Weraraoa club — have all been stood down while an independent commissioner from New Zealand Cricket considers all the evidence. A T20 match between Paraparaumu and Weraroa at Kena Kena Park in Paraparaumu was called off on February 18 after an on-field fight broke out and police were called. A hearing was held in Paraparaumu on Monday night with an independent NZC commissioner and club lawyers present. A decision was expected within three weeks.

Resident Medical Officers (RMOs) who are members of the New Zealand Resident Doctors’ Association (NZRDA) have issued strike notice for a 48-hour period from 8am Tuesday, February 26 to 8am Thursday, February 28. Emergency and acute services will be available during the strike, a number of elective services, such as operations, procedures and outpatient clinics, will be postponed at Palmerston North Hospital. Patients who have appointments affected by the strike will be contacted directly. A freephone number, 0800 PNHOSP (764 677), is available for anyone with questions or who requires further information.

LVN270229jbwing

Warner Summerton with his broken wing from a 1930s Lanzo bomber design, home made. A Kimberley Road resident found the wing of a large model aeroplane in the blackberries in a back paddock. He left the black and yellow wing at the Chronicle office on Friday, hoping we might find an owner. A Facebook post generated a few quick responses locally and on Monday morning the owner of the plane that had its wing clipped turned up to claim it. Warner Summerton from Waikanae said he was in town the previous weekend for a competition of vintage model planes. “Mine is based on a 1930s design of a Lanzo bomber. This is only half of its wing.” He said his plane soared rather high and he lost track of it. “I saw it coming down and I found most of it, but this part we could not find. It landed rather a long way from where we were flying on Tararua Road.” He reckons somewhere a kilometre or two into the air the plane must have tilted and damaged its wing. “It probably lost its thermal lift and came crashing down.” He’s had the plane for a year or two and built it himself, and he said it can be easily fixed.

Fun at Children’s Day

One of the fun activities on offer at last year’s Children’s Day celebrations in Levin. Levin’s Annual Children’s’ Day is on at Adventure Park on Sunday March 3. “It is our ninth annual free fun day for families,” said Therase Apatu on behalf of the organising committee. “It is also International Children’s Day.” “It is meant to give families a day where they can do things together and for free.” Local entertainment includes Kapa Haka, Pasifika groups, Kate Martin’s Dance School and the Tae Kwon Do club will do demonstrations Organisers are also promising a petting zoo, pony rides, free sausage

sizzle, fruit and candyfloss, with a water truck on site, bouncy castles, an inflatable soccer pitch and a boxing ring, under fives entertainment tent, cookie icing of sea creatures, story telling, free train rides, kaumātua tent, face painting, ta moko, a big dig, running races, rugby. Everything on the day is free thanks to sponsors the Professionals, Horowhenua District Council, Oranga Tamariki, JBs, Women’s Refuge and Life to the Max. The day starts at 11 am and lasts until 3pm, regardless of the weather, but for now the forecast is good.

Tailored support helps elders enjoy the outdoors

Reevedon Home and Village 37 Salisbury Street, Levin Reevedon Home Reevedon Home is more than just a rest home; it’s an elder-centred community that recognises older people as individuals and supports them in a way that’s right for them. We offer rest home care, respite and a popular day programme.

Reevedon Village Enjoy your retirement your way at the centrally located Reevedon Village. Our sought after villas are light, bright, and just the right size.

Come and see! Free phone 0508 ENLIVEN or visit www.enlivencentral.org.nz

It’s well-known that getting outdoors can make a big difference to our mental and physical wellbeing, whether that involves enjoying a picnic with friends, a relaxing day at the beach or simply soaking in the sunshine at home. At Enliven’s Levin Home for War Veterans and sister site, Reevedon Home, residents and staff have been taking every opportunity to enjoy those benefits, heading out to rugby matches together, Otaki’s recent kite festival, a grand picnic out at Lake Dudding in Rangit kei, Wellington’s botanic gardens and more – wheelchairs and walkers in tow. Reevedon and Levin Home manager Jenny Hodgen says that with the right support, there’s no reason for elders to miss out on the joys of fresh air. “It can be more difficult to get out the door regularly when you get older, but most of the obstacles which elders face in that respect can be overcome with the right support and a little encouragement. Our recreation team put a lot of effort into making sure our outings are tailored so that all the residents are able to take part, whatever their age or ability. “Newer residents sometimes worry about their wheelchairs, walking sticks or walkers getting in the way of enjoying an outing, but we let them know it’s no trouble at all. We just take those things along with us in the van.” The homes’ focus on elders’ holistic wellbeing reflects their commitment to Enliven’s unique philosophy, which

encourages elders to enjoy regular access to nature, seek companionship and take part in meaningful activity – it’s an approach which has seen the homes gain recognition nationally and internationally. Levin Home for War Veterans is one of only a handful of homes in New Zealand to have achieved full registration with the internationally-recognised Eden Alternative. This indicates the home has successfully put into practice all ten of Eden’s eldercentred principles. Reevedon Home, meanwhile, was recently awarded a four-year certification from the Ministry of Health, the maximum certification period on offer and a signal to others that the home is offering residents the best standard of care possible. You can learn more about either home by visiting www.enlivencentral.org.nz or by calling them directly on 06 366 0052 (Levin Home for War Veterans) or 06 368 7900 (Reevedon Home).

Have your say on eco policies Here in Horowhenua and Kāpiti we are blessed with amazing outdoor opportunities, whether it be hiking in the Tararuas, swimming at our beaches, catching whitebait or visiting Kāpiti Islands bird sanctuary. The environment matters to us all. National has just launched its BlueGreens discussion document. This special interest group works with our MPs and believes successful economic and environmental policy must go hand-in-hand to benefit New Zealand and future generations. The key points in the document are: Resource use must be based on sustainability, economic growth and improving the environment can and must go hand in hand, good science is essential to quality environmental decision making, people respond best to change when engaged and given incentives, and New Zealanders have a unique birth right to access and enjoy our special places. We’re aiming to transition to a circular economy, meaning one that is restorative and regenerative, designing waste out of our system. National believes we can deliver a better environment without imposing a whole series of unneeded environmental taxes. We support an independent climate change commission and we want to see New Zealand meet its Paris commitments, with the smart use of technology like electric vehicles and continuing to grow renewable energy.

Infrastructure investment is critical to improving water quality and improving New Zealand’s resilience to climate change. The Government chose to end support for water storage infrastructure whereas we will consider expanding support with a new Water Infrastructure Fund. New infrastructure is needed in cities to separate and better manage storm and wastewater, while in rural New Zealand sustainable water storage schemes are required to improve water quality and management. It is time New Zealand steps up its approach to reducing waste and litter. More responsibility from industry is needed. The Litter Act should be updated, and a timetable to achieve zero avoidable waste needs to be set. We introduced Predator Free 2050 to ensure the survival of iconic birds like the kiwi and we believe in that vision. We also take a different approach to this Government, which has banned work on new biotechnologies. The document is at www.national.org.nz/OurEnvironment. Please have a look and give us feedback. Your thoughts will help us define our environmental policy.

By ROSALIE WILLIS The sequined dresses will be hung up, the high-heeled boots on the shelf and the wigs put away as The Retro Divas — Kāpiti’s favourite girl band for over 13 years — is retiring. The Retro Divas have entertained at countless school galas and fundraisers, including Relay for Life, The Mary Potter Hospice Strawberry Festival, The Kāpiti Festival, and cancer charity balls as well as The Martinborough Food and Wine Festival and the Kāpiti Food Fair. “We’ve been going strong but our lives have gotten a little bit busy, which is why we’ve decided to retire,” said Retro Diva Charlotte Kerrigan. “The highlights for us would be the variety of shows we have done. We do a lot of private parties and themed parties where people dress up, which is a lot of fun. “We’ve also done some big shows at Southward Car Museum and they’ve been pretty special but what’s been really lovely is doing a lot of the charity shows.

It’s been part of our mission to do shows that are affordable for people, and wanting to do stuff for charity as well. “Luckily we made enough money from the private parties to be able to do the charity events for free.” A running joke is that their target audience is under 10s and over 70s because all the music is high-energy dance music. Synchronised dance moves, singing with harmonies, bright dresses, glitter and truckloads of make-up could always be expected, with their goal to get everyone up and smiling by the end of their show. To go out with a bang the group is holding a farewell dance party at Paekākāriki Hall on Saturday, April 6 at 8pm. Guests are invited to dress up in their favourite retro gear from the 60s, 70s and 80s and boogie on down as they sing for one last dance. There will be Diva prize packs for the best dressed and the best dancer, tickets are $20 from www.eventfinda.co.nz

HIP HIP HOORAY, NO HIP Plastic-free for market REPLACEMENT TODAY

Meet Diane of Kirk-Wood Cafe, Manakau. She is one of 17,000 New Zealanders for whom a hip replacement seemed inevitable-until a few weeks ago... This is Diane’s story. “Thank you for giving me the opportunity to let others know how much success I’m having with the arthritis in my hips and back since starting on the QRS Mat. About 10 years ago I noticed that one of my hips was starting “give-out” periodically after sitting for long periods, in the car or office. X-rays confirmed the worse, arthritis in the hips and lower back. About 5 years ago the problem became worse, and I was reduced to hobbling around as best I could with some days far worse than others. I was next in line for a hip operation; just like my mother, father and sister before me. A friend told us about the QRS PEMF mat and in late May I started having sessions with Pip Martin of Kohuto Clinic in Manukau; 4 times a week for 16 minutes. Since that time Ive noticed a good 80% improvement in the arthritis in my hip and lower back. It’s absolutely marvellous to be moving freely again, without limping, without the awful grinding of the bones. I am now finding I’m able to do the tramping that I enjoyed 20 years ago, and can only encourage anyone else who is having hip problems to get some QRS PEMF treatment-it works! We are so very lucky to be living in this age of new technology. Very best wishes and kind regards, Diane” The leading and most common cause for a hip replacement is osteoarthritis. Visit the Arthritis NZ web-site and it tells you clearly “there is no cure for any form of 140 types of arthritis” and managing the pain and symptoms is the best you can hope for. The day-to-day treatments for arthritis, e.g. the anti-inflammatory and “pain-killers” which simply help relieve the Symptoms; have long-term side-effects on kidneys, stomach and liver. They actually worsen the arthritis by inhibiting cartilage formation and accelerate cartilage destruction. As far back as 1975 scientific papers were being published proving Pulsed Electromagnetic frequencies (PEMF’s) are highly effect in treating pain and improving function in osteoarthritis. Dr. C. Andrew Bassett of Columbia University’s Orthopaedic Research Lab, with over 30 years experience in PEMF research estimates over 65’000 patients nationwide (US) have received PEMF treatment, with a success rate of between 80-90%. The latest study into PEMF’s and arthritis finally shows there is much more than just nontoxic, non-pharmaceutical pain relief and improved function to be gained, as important as that is. This new study (Orthop Res. 2014 May: 3(5): 677-85)shows that “the fundamental underlying process of progression of arthritis can be slowed or stopped, even in the presence of fairly severe arthritis” In the study, the sham group showed increased cartilage surface degeneration compared to the two PEMF groups. In other words, their arthritis got significantly worse in the short 3 month study. On the other hand the PEMF group, cartilage thickness was significantly better and had a much lower evidence of cartilage damage and degeneration. Both PEMF treatments were able to counteract the progression of osteoarthritis. The above research shows that PEMF therapy is a very important tool for the treatment of arthritis. Most adults will develop arthritis sooner rather than later. One of the major indicators for developing arthritis and subsequent knee and hip replacement surgery is BMI (Body Mass Index). The 2014 New Zealand Orthopaedic Association Joint Registry reports the average hip replacement patient has a Body Mass Index of 28.68. A BMI of 30 indicates clinical obesity. Granted not every person who has a hip or knee replacement is border-line obese, but a great many are! So prevention and perhaps even cure can be as simply as changing your diet. The beauty of food as medicine is that the choice. To heal and improve health can begin as soon as the next meal! It’s a bold claim to make, is it really possible to cure arthritis? But why would you ignore credible research into the benefits of PEMF therapy given the complete lack of any other solution?

Had enough of plastic packaging? Dominique Cvitanovic is organising Wrapped With Nature, a plastic-free market and that means no plastic bags, containers, products allowed. There will be plenty of opportunities at this market to find alternatives for just about anything. Wrapped With Nature is on Sunday March 3, 10am to 4pm at Waitarere Beach Domain. “I wanted to help people find out more about the alternatives to plastic used for products we use every day such as shampoo, body soap, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, washing powder.” She’s been working on using alternatives to plastic packaging for a while and then got friends to jump on board and now she wants to involve her community. She’s looking for everything which is

not plastic or in plastic containers: bamboo pegs, upcycled clothes, flax bags, hats, essential oils, reusable coffee cups, stainless steel straws and much more. No food or drinks are to be sold. Entry is free, stalls cost $20 for a 3m x 3m stall, $35 for 6m x 3m stall. “The idea is to show people that it is not hard to switch and ditch plastic from our lives. As a nation we are struggling to get rid of our plastics, we cannot export it anymore. Why should we ask someone else to dispose of our rubbish? “We can make little changes, and every year add another one . . . at the end of day, baby step by baby step we will reduce the plastic and maybe research will come at some stage with a plan to dispose of what is already there.” ■ For more information go to: www.facebook.com/groups/ 502945043445637/

Horowhenua Chronicle

Rider picked in squad for development By LEXI RUTHERFORD-BLYTH Horowhenua equestrian eventer Abby Long has been chosen to be part of the National Talent Development Squad. The Squad is one of five squads created to produce New Zealand’s next Tim and Jonelle Prices. They are run by the Equestrian Sports New Zealand. Abby Long applied to be part of the Talent ID Squad, in the first tier, four years ago. Two years later she was selected, along with four other promising eventers to join the Talent Development squad.

“It is an amazing opportunity,” she said. She is now in her second season on the squad. “I feel honoured to be part of the select group that gets to be on the squad and really feel that it has helped me excel in my riding and training of my horses”. She said that the Talent Development Squad gives young eventers the opportunities and tools to achieve their goals by introducing them to the best coaches and vets New Zealand has to offer, teaching them horse and rider fitness by employing a personal trainer and organising three camps annually to improve their riding.

Have a say on the plans Horizons Regional Council is calling for submissions on its 2019-2019 Annual Plan. Last year in its long-term plan Horizons said a 4.72 per cent rate increase would be expected in the second year. However, unexpected costs, which include a $300,000 increase in insurance levies, which the council plans to pay for by making some changes to its programme for the next year, have come up. Horizons chair Bruce Gordon said Horizons had compiled a consultation document to help highlight what some of the key items are for 2019-20. “Predominantly planned work for Year 2 is business as usual with minimal increase in costs, however we are proposing to make some rating changes to the Haunui, Foxton and Makirikiri

river management schemes.” Mr Gordon said in addition to the consultation document sent to all households in the region, those affected by these proposed rating changes have been sent direct mail with further information. “We are also holding a drop-in session for Foxton ratepayers on Monday 11 March at 1.30pm in Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom in Foxton.” Submissions to Horizons 2019-20 Annual Plan close on 25 March. The consultation document and further supporting documentation is available online at haveyoursay.horizons.govt.nz and from Horizons’ service centres. Submission forms are also available online and will be delivered to letterboxes throughout the region this week.

SEAWEEK EVENTS

Seaweek time to get to know ocean By DEBORAH MACDONALD Children’s Librarian & Pam Coleman Community Engagement Librarian Seaweek is New Zealand’s annual national week about the sea. Seaweek — Kaupapa Moana 2019 will take place from Saturday, March 2 to Sunday, March 10. Hosted by the NZ Association for Environmental Education (NZAEE), Seaweek focuses on learning from the sea. It’s about exciting and inspiring all New Zealanders to renew their connections with the sea! Not just for children or those involved with formal education — it’s a time for all of us to get to know our ocean, its habitats, characteristics and inhabitants better. A healthy world ocean is critical to our survival. Every year, Seaweek provides a unique opportunity to honour, help protect, and conserve our world’s shared ocean. The ocean is important because it: • Generates most of the oxygen we breathe. Rainforests are responsible for roughly one-third (28 per cent) of the Earth’s oxygen but most (70 per cent) of the oxygen in the atmosphere is produced by marine plants. • Helps feed us • Regulates our climate • Cleans the water we drink • Offers a pharmacopoeia of medicines • Provides limitless inspiration! Tiakina o Tātou Mōana — Care for our Seas is the theme for Seaweek this year and there will be many events held around the country to highlight the impact of plastic, litter and other pollutants on our coasts and in our seas. Angelina Smith is the Seaweek Coordinator for this region and has co-

ere at Kapiti Removals and Storage we have over 12 years of moving and storage experience but with the appointments of Catherine and Sue we are bringing a fresh look and attitude to the whole moving business. Catherine Ternent has led our packing teams for a large part of that time and now steps up to take the lead role in project managing and service delivery. Working alongside is Sue Tanner who adds her removals experience, plus office and organisational skills to the Kapiti Removals & Storage office. Catherine and Sue are building a strong support crew of removalists, drivers and packers who can fulfil the promise of care and respect. You may be building and require a move with storage until the build or renovation is completed or to simply rearrange the house, both of these scenarios are becoming popular with customers.

Unless all you own fits inside a suitcase, then moving requires careful planning to make it as successful and stress free as possible. It may involve decluttering, downsizing, packing and storage or a straightforward A to B removal.

T

he popularity of Heat Pumps has risen dramatically over resat pears. This has not been purely for their high energy efficiency ratings, but is also due to the numerous practical, convenient and environmentally friendly benefits that ownership and intsallation can bring. The most obvious benefit of a heat pump at this time of the year is its ability to provide warmth. This can be achieved with the simple touch of a button; at the wall; or on the remote; and even from the comfort of your chair. Heat pumps can very quickly increase the temperature of a room. However, did you know, they can also be used for Gooling or Air Conditioning Your comfort is the single most important feature of a heat pump, and you are in control. A heat pump provides you with the ability to easily control and maintain your climate to your own levels.

Pure Convenience

A heat pump enables you to increase or decrease the temperature of your room, or switch from heating to cooling in an instant and at the push of a button. Heat pumps can heat up or cool down a room within a few minutes, then, once the room reaches your preferred temperature, the beat pump will maintain that temperature for as long as you require it to. Heat pumps don’t create smoke, ashes, moisture or any other waste material tor you to remove. When

cooling or dehumidifying your home there is no need to empty the reservoir of water as your heat pump is plumbed in and has a permanent drain to the outside. There are no flamesor hot surfaces that children or pets can touch and burn themselves on. They can also be safely left on whale you asleep and you can even leave your beat pump on when you go out and it won’t cost you a fortune to have the luxury of returning home to a comfortable temperature. Many heat pumps have the additional benefit of programmable diners which allow you to warm up your room prior to getting upon a cold morning cc before your return from work.

A warm, dry, comfortable environment with the addition of air conditioning will always be first choice for prospective home buyers over a house without such sought after benefits.

A Healthier Home

As your Heat Pump circulates the air in your room, the filters clean and purity the air removing dust, mold spores, odours, smoke and other particles. They are excellent for people who suffer from asthma and allergies. Also there is no need to sit near the unit in order to benefit from the beat as the air in the room is warmed and circulated for the benefit of at all. During summer, when you are using pour beat pump for cooling, the room is automatically dehumidified as a function of the Heat Pump. As the warm air-circulates through the unit moisture forms on the cold surface

When the warmer months swing around, a garden that’s bursting with bright flowers and gorgeous decorative pieces can really give your home a facelift. While it’s easy to rely on lush, green grass as the key provider of garden colour, try thinking out of the box and playing with some more daring shades. From the cherry-pink kick of Resene Knock Out to the lively zing of Resene Home Run, there are numerous ways you can turn your front yard into a kaleidoscope of colour. However, the key is to embrace colour in a measured way. You don’t want your garden to look like it’s had a run in with an enthusiastic toddler who’s just discovered the joy of paint.

and Resene Centre Stage and create a series of floral features. If you’ve got limited space, a single flower bed lined with coloured bricks or stones is an excellent way to showcase your gardening skills. Alternatively, a lengthy row of flowers that weaves from one side of your garden to the other can really turn heads. Opt for as many perennials as possible to ensure your garden isn’t drab during the winter months. Don’t hesitate to

Painting the fence is a fun activity for adults and kids alike, but you don’t necessarily have to go for stereotypical white. In fact, painting your fence a bold shade could be a smart way to inject more colour into your property, without having to take to your home itself. Shades of green such as Resene Kaitoke Green or Resene Permanent Green pack a punch, without being too extreme. Use them to paint your fence, or perhaps a single front gate. They match shades like white, cream and tan well, so no matter the colour of your home, there’s a good chance you’ll get an excellent colour match! Alternatively, liven things up with a fiery shade like Resene Smashing or Resene Dynamite. You could even pick a complementary shade for your letterbox to maximise the impact.

about the joy of sitting in your front yard, soaking up some summer sunshine! A few outdoor recliners or waterproof wicker chairs make a great addition to your front yard. If you’ve got enough room to add a few select pieces of furniture to your garden, think carefully about the kind of colours you want to embrace. While wicker and wooden furniture often embraces hues like Resene Lemon Grass, Resene Triple Blanc and Resene Sandstone, why not break the mould and opt for chairs and outdoor loungers in more vibrant shades? There are numerous paint colours that lend themselves well to furniture. Make sure the colours you pick complement your home’s existing shade. Colourful furniture is a good pick if you’ve got limited gardening skills and dread the thought of tending to numerous flowers! Simply add bright outdoor chairs and keep the plant side of things simple, with low-maintenance native grasses.

Add colourful furniture

Sure, you might have an al fresco area at your property’s rear. But don’t forget

Start with the flowers

It might seem obvious, but don’t underestimate the effect carefully selected flowers can have on your garden. Not only will this area be brightened up, but it also sets the stage for your property. After all, it’s your front yard that will influence visitors’ first impressions, so you may as well make it count. Pick a selection of flowers in shades like Resene Daredevil, Resene Spotlight

Kapiti’s largest landscape and supply yard!

Create your own colourful garden on your fence, using bold hues such as Resene ASAP, R. Left Field, R. Wheel Of Fortune and R. Limerick, to contrast with a R. All Black fence.

Daniel Champagne. Levin’s Tsunami Studio believes it has scored a major coup by booking a young Australian guitarist who has been making waves at festivals around the world. Daniel Champagne is coming to Levin for one concert at Tsunami Studio next month. “Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. “Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical,” wrote one reviewer recently on themusic.com.au The young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five year old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road. In the next several years he traversed North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and Australia

performing. He has toured and shared stages with Jake Shimabukuro, Jesse Cook, Roderigo Y Gabriela, Richard Shindell, The Ragbirds, The Waifs, Lucinda Williams, Judy Collins, INXS, John Butler, KT Tunstall and Ani DiFranco. Daniel has accomplished all of this while writing, producing and independently releasing two Eps, Gypsy Moon Volumes 1 and 2, his first long player Pint of Mystery (2011), My Own Design (2009), Wide Eyed and Open (2010), Real Live (2012), and The Heartland Hurricanes (2014). His latest full length release Fault Lines (2017) is available now and his new project, Satellite City EP (2018) is comprised of three singles, Satellite City, Indigo, and The Great Divide, all out now. He’s now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for making festivals buzz, and holding crowds in his palm, dropping jaws and breaking guitars wherever he goes. Daniel Champagne has relocated to North America where he continues his career as an international touring and recording artist. He is playing one show at Tsunami Sound on Monday March. 18 from 7.45pm, 150 Kimberley Road in Levin. Cost is $20. Bookings are essential at adele@tmv.co.nz 0211619154.
