FE AT U R E

Hip Hop dance crew laughs their way to Hawaii A comedy night presented by Dance Dimensions at the Dairy Flat hall on Wednesday May 1 will help raise funds to send a Hibiscus Coast hiphop team to compete in Hawaii. Brigade, who are aged 14 to 18 years, qualified for the 2019 Global Dance and Cheer Games after placing second in Auckland’s Dance Brandz competition in July last year. They have been fundraising for the competition, which opens on May 17, ever since. The R16 comedy event will be hosted by The Rock’s Roger Farrelly, who is no stranger to competitive dancing after featuring on Dancing with the Stars last year. The night will also feature comedians Nick Rado, Bridget Davies and Tevita Manukia. A cash bar, refreshments, raffles and silent auctions will also be available.

“We’ve done everything from car washes to quiz nights,” Brigade’s fundraising coordinator Sonya Lewis says. In the lead-up to the Hawaii competition, Brigade members are rehearsing together once a week, as well as training in other dance styles which complement hip-hop. Member Brandon Lewis holds the record for the most rehearsals, taking 12 different dance classes in five different styles every week. This is the second time a Dance Dimensions group has gone to the Global Games, following the Wicki Chix achieving third place overall in 2017 after qualifying as a wild card entry. Two Wicki Chix members, Breia Plumbley and Cassie Floyd, will be returning to Hawaii with Brigade. Dance Dimensions teacher Olivia

Brigade will fly to Hawaii to compete in the Global Dance and Cheer Games next month.

Clarke says remembering their last achievement makes all the hard work worthwhile. “When the Wicki Chix came third, we all just burst into tears; it was one

of those life moments that stay with you,” she says. Comedy night entry is $25 by prepurchase only. For tickets contact olivia@dancedimensions.co.nz

tend to choose music from “chill” genres like jazz and RnB. The majority of the line-up is talent from Centrestage and includes Geena Hutton and Euan Lindsay, who have performed as a singer and guitar duo at all six Sofa Sessions. “People come just to see them perform,” Scott says. “They are our

iconic duo.” Other talent includes newcomers Zaverr Docter and Carlin Diprose. The four-and-a-half hour event also has a bar and snacks available. Sofa Sessions starts at 7pm and entry is by donation. Info: SOFA Sessions April 2019 on Facebook.

Sofa Sessions providing cosy evening entertainment Centrestage Theatre is hosting Sofa Sessions, an evening of live music viewed from the comfort of couches, on Friday April 26. The event is presented by Stage It, a Stanmore Bay production group that runs the technical side of performances at Centrestage and for schools around the Hibiscus Coast.

This is their sixth Sofa Sessions night, with Stage It founder Scott Gaddes saying they want to keep promoting up and coming talent. “We want to create a platform for young artists in the area to showcase their talents,” he says. The artists get full autonomy on what they perform, although Scott says they

All Temp Heat Pumps

After 18 years experience working in the family heat pump business in West Auckland, Ian Delaney has decided to strike out on his own. Meeting his partner, Sarah Rasmussen – owner of the Avenue Hair Studio in Stanmore Bay, and a born and breed Coastie – Ian says he couldn’t wait to call the Hibiscus Coast home. “After three years of commuting to West Auckland daily I was keen to get back on the tools working in the local area,” Ian says. All Temp Heat Pumps covers the Hibiscus Coast, Rodney and west to Helensville. While Ian’s experience includes everything from domestic installations to overseeing the installation of large air conditioning systems on some of Auckland’s high-rise and commercial building projects, he says what he loves best is working one-on-one with customers and delivering good oldfashioned customer service. “There’s nothing better than sitting down and having a chat about exactly what the customer wants,” he says. “Job satisfaction for me is knowing my customers are happy. “Sometimes you have to be prepared to think out-of-the-box – there are always lots of options and ways to achieve what a homeowner is looking for.” Ian recommends Mitsubishi and Daikin heat pumps, which he says are

good quality systems with the latest technology. “As a qualified electrician, I can sign off on all jobs and service the products as well. This is also a cost-saving for the homeowner.” Ian says heat pumps are the ideal way to heat a home because they are energy efficient, quiet and today’s models include wifi so they can be accessed remotely. When not running his business, Ian is a keen motocross rider and will be coaching his son Benji’s J4 rugby team at Silverdale this season.

Swimmers go to great lengths for good cause

Health with Sheryl Takayama, nutritionist sheryl@whyweightnutrition.co.nz

Gutsy approach to immunity With winter approaching, I have had many people wanting to talk about how they can use nutrition to support their immune system and keep winter bugs at bay. As Hippocrates said: “Let food be thy medicine.” We know that real food contains nutrients, vitamins and minerals that support the immune system. However, your body will only benefit from these if it is able to absorb them from the food you have eaten. It is possible that you could be eating a wide variety of whole foods but suffering from low levels of key nutrients. It is estimated that 80 percent of the immune system lives within the gastrointestinal tract. If the gut is damaged, it is highly likely that you won’t be able to fully absorb key nutrients and your immune system will be compromised. Therefore, if you want a strong immune system, focus on the health of your gut. Here are three important ways you can look after the good bacteria within your gut: Food: Regularly consume fermented foods. These are packed full of enzymes, vitamins and various strains of healthy gut bacteria: sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, natural yoghurt, kombucha. – Regularly consume prebiotics: These are the fuel source for healthy bacteria. Foods with high levels include leeks, raw garlic/ onion, cooked onion, asparagus, dandelion greens, bananas, nuts. – Eat a diverse range of foods: diets rich in whole foods provide your gut with a variety of nutrients that help promote the growth of different types of bacteria. Lifestyle: Exercise regularly as this promotes the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. Certain strains of bacteria including Bifidobacterium, which are present in active people, are not seen in people who are inactive. – Limit the baddies for gut health: alcohol, caffeine, smoking and excessive medication. – Value the importance of sleep. Studies have shown that regular disruptions to the circadian rhythm have a harmful effect on gut bacteria. Supplementation: L-glutamine helps regenerate the lining of the digestive tract; zinc forms digestive enzymes and regulates hormones; and good quality fish oil helps reduce inflammation. – Take a probiotic supplement periodically to help increase the levels of beneficial bacteria in your gut. This is especially important after a course of antibiotics. It takes time to build a healthy gut, but taking these steps will help you to strengthen your health from the core so you can better fight winter ills.

It seems appropriate that waterbased organisations will be the major beneficiaries of this year’s Generation Homes Rotary Swimarathon. The event, which is jointly run by the three local Rotary Clubs, is raising funds for Orewa and Red Beach Surf Lifesaving Clubs, Orewa Sea Scouts and Coastguard Hibiscus. It involves teams of up to six swimmers who swim as many laps of the Stanmore Bay Leisure Centre pool as they can in 45 minutes, in support of one of the nominated charities. Although it is mainly a fun event for swimmers of all abilities – from school kids to grandparents – this year’s event also offers, for the first time, the opportunity for surf clubs, swim and water polo clubs to compete for the Basil Blackham Memorial Challenge Cup. The team that swims the most lengths in a 45-minute period will keep the cup for the next 12 months. Last year’s inaugural event saw 123 swimmers complete 3916 lengths, raising $10,000 for local charities. Rotary Swimarathon chair Brian Mullan says this year it is hoped to more than double the number of both swimmers, and funds raised. The Rotary Swimarathon takes place on Sunday, June 30. Spectators and supporters are welcome

Finger on pulse of rat removal We’re coming into autumn, a time of change. The days are getting shorter and cooler, leaves on deciduous trees are yellowing, and we start thinking of the winter ahead. Rats and mice are also getting ready for the colder months, moving around in search of their winter homes – it’s at this time of year that you find mice coming into the house, and occasionally rats as well. To combat this, in my garden I have mouse and rat traps. Whether using traps or poison, it’s better to fix the problem in the garden rather than after the problem has moved into your ceiling space or garage. I rarely catch a rat but a friend put a trap in his compost bin and caught eight rats in two weeks. Maybe my neighbours also trap, so I’m lucky. You never quite know how it will go. Usually you start by catching a rat or three, and then numbers taper off. A line of traps set up around Orewa Estuary last year (a project supported by Hibiscus and Bays Local Board) caught 18 rats in the first three months and only two since; another caught 15 in three months and five since then. A question this raises is how we’ll alter our trapping method when numbers taper off. There seems little point in continuing to check the traps every week for very few catches. There must be a simpler way – and there is. It’s called pulsing; you trap for four or five weeks then take a break till the next pulse. There are four pulses a year (April, August, November and January) and it is particularly effective when a group of neighbours work together to knock down rat numbers. In doing this not only are you taking care of your own garden but you’re adding to growing pest control over the Hibiscus Coast and Auckland wide. Forest and Bird’s pest free projects on the Hibiscus Coast (Pest Free Peninsula and Orewa Estuary Restoration Project) and others such as the Eaves Bush trapping group and The Pied Pipers at Waiwera are all making life better for our wildlife and for us in our homes. Also benefiting is the Shakespear Open Sanctuary, which would love to have fewer rats knocking on its door. We can all help with this, either in your own backyard or by getting a few people together in your street. If you need a hand getting started, get in touch with Hibiscus Coast Forest and Bird (email above) who would be happy to help. Join the April pulse! Richard Chambers has lived on the Hibiscus Coast for almost 30 years, and for all that time he has been observing nature and helping to look after it. A member of Forest and Bird, and coordinator for Pest Free Hibiscus and Bays, he is keen to see the community become pest free so that the birds and wildlife spilling out from Shakespear Open Sanctuary can live in our backyards.

Jiving through the years

The Hibiscus Coast Rock ‘n’ Roll club celebrated its 21st birthday with a “bling ball” on Saturday, April 6. More than 200 people attended, including Rock ‘n’ Roll club members from as far as Hamilton, filling the Dairy Flat School hall with plenty of glitter and retro attire. A live band led by Rock ‘n’ Roll artist Che Orton played throughout the night. President Leslie Green, who has been a member since the club was formed, says it is like a family. “We have grown from a handful of dedicated dancers meeting at Muldoon’s Bar to the current

membership of around 200 people,” Leslie says. “It has just been wonderful to celebrate our birthday with our members because they mean so much to us.” Several members, like Leslie, have been with the club since it started. The age of club members ranges from 14 to 87 years. The group practices in Whangaparāoa Hall every Tuesday, holding a range of beginner and advanced classes and social dances. Between Leslie and club vice president Noelene Mack, they have more than 26 years of dance teaching experience. Info: hibiscusrocknroll.co.nz

Clockwise from top, The club’s committee members blow out the candles to a “fabulous” 21 years. Attendees filled the dance floor to do the highly requested Wagon Wheel line dance. Club President Leslie Green with committee member Linda Skinner, who says the club gets you “hooked.”

With the onset of winter, we usually prefer to be inside in the warmth as soon as the sun goes down. The downside is that we miss the time when the skies give us the very best things to see. The Southern Hemisphere night sky contains a far greater range of interesting features than does the Northern. As mentioned in this column last month, we get to see the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds – the two galaxies visible to the naked eye, as well as the amazing Omega Centauri globular cluster. We also get to see three of the brightest stars: Sirius, Canopus, and Alpha Centauri. The third brightest star in the night sky is Alpha Centauri, which is just 4.37 light-years away. It’s actually a two star system – Alpha Centauri A, a massive, bright star, and its much dimmer companion, Alpha Centauri B. We can see A pretty easily, but need a good telescope to see B. All your need to do to find it, is to look for the Southern Cross. Now look down to the pointers. The first pointer is Hadar. The second is Alpha Centauri. While Orion is the ruler of the night skies during summer, the constellation that heralds the start of winter and rules the winter sky is Scorpio. You can see it begin to rise around 10pm in the east. The easiest way to find it is to look for the bright red star. This is Antares, also known as ‘The Heart of the Scorpion’. Looking through a telescope we can see the awesome Jewel Box Cluster near the Southern Cross. The Eta Carina Nebula which is one of the most beautiful and brightest nebula can also be seen. It pairs well with the amazing detail that can be seen in the Tarantula Nebula, which is found in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Coming up on April 23, the Moon and Jupiter meet in the sky and travel together for most of the night. This is one of the beautiful celestial pairings. Spectacular with the naked eye – but something truly special when viewed with good binoculars. Look for the Galilean moons, the four largest moons of Jupiter: Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. If you are lucky, you will get to see five moons in the sky at the same time! Early in the morning of May 6, you will be able to see one of the most spectacular meteor showers in the Southern Hemisphere – Eta Aquarids. This shower occurs when the Earth passes through the debris left behind from the famous Haley’s Comet. At the peak you can expect up to 60 meteors an hour. One of the other benefits of a winter sky, is that the cold air tends to make the skies look a lot clearer. This makes viewing fainter objects easier. So wrap yourself up warmy, grab a hot drink and get out and explore our awesome winter sky. The Hibiscus Coast Astronomical Society meets every first and third Thursday of the month at the Faithfull Funeral Services Hall, 35 Red Beach Road at 7.30pm. All are welcome.

Raiders top teams desperately seeking more players Jeremy Fourie

The Hibiscus Coast Raiders are in desperate need of more senior players to bolster their ranks. The Premier team is able to name a 17man squad for match days without too much trouble, but the Premier Reserve team, in contrast, is left scrambling to name a squad. The Reserve team was only able to name 13 players for their Round 2 loss to the Te Atatu Roosters at Stanmore Bay. Coach Bluey McLennan thanked the Reserve team for the effort they put in against the Roosters. “Only 13 boys and they showed heaps of heart to come back in the second half,” he said. The problem with numbers surfaced again in the lead up to the Round 3 away match against Ellerslie, with the

Guest speaker will be renowned sports journalist and broadcaster Phil Gifford (aka Loosehead Len). Tickets are $100 per head and include buffet lunch and some complimentary beverages. Corporate tables are also available. Up for grabs at the post-lunch auction are some special items, including a limited edition Mohammed Ali montage, a luxury lodge escape, coastal holiday home breaks and a 7-day campervan hire.

Fishing for charity

Coastguard Hibiscus and Waterwise are the chief beneficiaries of next month’s annual Stillwater Boating Club Bounty of the Sea Fishing Competition and Fish Auction, on May 11. The event includes family fun such as raffles, bouncy castle, face-painting, food stalls, a colouring competition and demonstrations by Coastguard Hibiscus and Waterwise. What it different, and popular with local families and fishers, is that the catch is auctioned following the weigh-in, with the money going to the chosen charities. The event begins at 2pm at the club, on Duck Creek Road, Stillwater. It is best to register before the event as the entries for the fishing comp are limited but the Fish Auction is open to anyone.

It’s been five years since Silverdale Rugby Club held one of its popular fundraising luncheons and the club hopes for a great turnout when the event returns on May 3. Club chair Terry Wilson says the fundraisers were started in 2003 by championship winning Premier coach Charlie McAlister, and proved an instant hit with the Hibiscus Coast public, selling out every year. He says the luncheons ceased in 2014 because it was proving difficult to find volunteers to run them. However, this year the Silverdale Old Boys have picked up the baton. Proceeds from the lunch and auction will go to the club’s building project as well as its Endowment Trust. “Anyone driving past the club in recent months

The club could not get the required numbers to field a Reserve team and lost the game against Ellerslie by default. Bluey says the Reserves need more players, confirming that the club can get fined for not fielding a team. According to the ARL Bylaws, a Premiership grade team that is unable to participate and fails to notify the ARL in writing, before 12 noon on the last working day prior to the fixture, will be fined $500 and any team failing to field a side on two consecutive occasions, or three in total, will be withdrawn from the competition.
