dominant symptom. Most forms of dementia have a mixture of symptoms and these are different for each person. People diagnosed with dementia may show signs of depression and/or anxiety, and research is not clear about the extent to which this is a reaction to diagnosis or a symptom of changes in the brain. It is likely a combination. Confusion can leave a person with dementia vulnerable to exploitation, so support by partners, family, friends and neighbours and local businesses is very important to help them stay safely independent for as long as possible. Mr Vickridge said that while the numbers of people living with dementia is on the increase due to the ageing population (it is about 60,000 in New Zealand currently), a slow-down is beginning as benefits of healthier lifestyles take effect. Better understanding is leading to less fear and stigma around dementia, so people are seeing their doctors about symptoms at an earlier stage. While there is no cure as yet, some drugs can slow the rate of brain changes and the severity of symptoms in some people. More importantly, communities are developing better understanding about how we can all support a person experiencing dementia symptoms. “Whatever is good for your heart and circulation is also good for your brain,” Mr Vickridge said. “A healthy diet, regular exercise of body and brain and social activities can not only help prevent illness, but can keep our minds alert and spirits up too.” With good lifestyle choices we can live healthier throughout our twilight years and have a better chance of protecting our mind to the end of our days. Eat healthily, exercise regularly, don't smoke, drink only in moderation and keep a sense of humour. Pauline Abrahams

Fight for Club leadership about keeping premises T here’s another stoush for leadership at the Raglan Club, ahead of the AGM on Sunday, with challengers of the current executive saying that the upcoming election should be a vote between those who want to sell the premises to get out of financial strife and those who want to trade their way out of debt.

Former president Peter Hockenhull, who was ousted from his position along with the rest of the executive in April last year, a sacking that was later upheld in the High Court in Hamilton, will stand against current president Colin Sullivan. Mr Hockenhull, with support and encouragement from member Andreas Broring, says the current president and executive have run the Club “stony broke” and want to sell the sizeable Bow St premises. The financial report for the year ended March 31, 2017, shows that the Club made a loss of $117,710 compared with a profit of $13,051 the previous year. This includes $25,410 spent on legal fees and settlements after Mr Hockenhull sought a court injunction to reinstate himself and his executive. Members of the Club had voted to remove Mr Hockenhull as president because of his plans of a restructure that included a number of staff losing their jobs. Mr Hockenhull says the Club’s current financial position justifies his plans for a restructure. “We were wrong in what we were doing, hence the decision to make a financial restructure, but they decided no, that’s not right, and stopped it.” He says Mr Sullivan has a secret agenda in wanting to sell the premises because he wants the Club to buy the building predominantly occupied by Orca Restaurant and Bar – property that Mr Sullivan is part-owner of. “Part of the constitution is that there should be no personal benefit. I am worried

about the conflict of interest but also why has the executive run the club to its knees?” Mr Hockenhull says he knows he can make a financial difference “I was president from 1994 to 2004 and we had a really thriving club and doubled the membership from 365 to 1800 members.” He says he was entered as president again in 2015-16 because the Club “was broke”. “The Club had been mismanaged. They couldn’t pay their monthly accounts for seven years. Within two months we were paying the monthly accounts until we got booted out, and they haven’t been able to do so since.” He says if the Club moved premises it would not be able to take its gaming licence with it. The Club has 18 gaming machines that generated a revenue of $74,487 last year, and $131,752 the previous year. “We need the gaming machines to make money.” Mr Sullivan says he has no secret agendas, and any decision to sell the Club will be made by its members. He says he is negotiating with a number of parties about the sale of the premises but is bound to confidentiality agreements. “We will make a recommendation to members – if members decide against it, end of story. “Orca is not even on the table at the moment.” Mr Sullivan’s challengers say he wants to sell to Progressive Enterprises, owner and operator of Countdown supermarkets in New Zealand. Mr Sullivan says he wants to take the Club back into the black, and has had “30 odd years of experience”, including as president of the Hamilton Workingmen’s Club. There has been a general downturn in trading, Mr Sullivan says.

“People need to realise that when the Club was in its heyday there were two places where people could go to be social – here and the hotel. Now there are between 15 and 20. People have so many choices to where they can go to spend their discretionary dollars.” Mr Sullivan says the financial position of the Club is partly due to “Mr Hockenhull and his cohorts”, who have not yet paid any of the costs awarded by the High Court judge. Mr Broring, who has been a member of the Club for more than 30 years and wants to become treasurer of the new executive under Mr Hockenhull, says the current premises is the last site in Raglan that has “the potential to serve lots of community purposes … it’s bigger than the Town Hall”. “We just need a management that makes it accessible to the larger part of Raglan.” He says the Club should not support or instigate development that negatively affects the wellbeing of Raglan communities and businesses. “If sold under the current proposal, chances are very great a big supermarket will spring up there – it would be in competition with most established businesses in Raglan. “We prefer to see the Club trade out of the hole it has got itself in.” Mr Broring says he and a partner had made a proposal to buy the road front land from the Raglan Club for $1 million and rent car parking as a “way to get a substantial cash injection without having to part with the premises”. The idea was to build a number of retail shops in character with the township that would be rented to Raglan people with the cost of the lease kept down. “They didn’t even take it on board.” He says that the offer will noft stand if he is elected on to the executive.

Raglan artist’s new work right under cafe customers’ noses

Yaniv on the stairs where one of his artworks hangs.


e may not be a household name locally, but around Raglan this month artist Yaniv Janson’s work is on many people’s lips. That’s because local cafes’ takeaway cups have been printed with a set of Yaniv’s latest work especially for Plastic Free July.

His colourful labels are also on new reusable coffee cups which, in turn, reuse Raglan Coconut Yoghurt jars and are available for local cafe customers to take away for a koha. Yaniv – a 25-year-old contemporary painter with a strong social conscience – says this initiative is one way he can

contribute to the plastic-free cause in his own community. The coffee cup designs are prints from his latest project, ‘Please Do Touch’, which breaks with “regulations” and actually invites viewers to experience each piece of art with all their senses. “Almost no other artist says this (of their exhibits),” Yaniv explains from his family home at the top of Government Road, overlooking the harbour. “I want people to touch my art to see what it’s like.” Yaniv lives with Asperger’s syndrome, but during the past decade has found an ability to communicate better through art. He now wants to make his work touchable and accessible to all, including those like himself with a disability. His particular passion is for the ocean and the environment and keeping them beautiful. That’s evident in the big, bold ‘Please Do Touch’ installations which were scattered about his home when the Chronicle visited last week. Still drying on the dining room table was Yaniv’s tenth and final installation in the series, while another of his acrylics on canvas – entitled Life Below Water – hung halfway up the stairs.

All-up it’s taken this quietly spoken artist more than a year to complete the series. One of the rewards for Yaniv’s labour of love comes when he travels at the end of next month to Europe courtesy of a Creative New Zealand grant to exhibit his installations, first in Montenegro and later in Paris at UNESCO – a specialised agency of the United Nations. Yaniv has long dreamed of exhibiting through the United Nations. His installations embrace five of its 17 sustainable development goals, which look at the social and environmental issues in today’s world. He has enjoyed global exposure such as this since being discovered by UNESCO, soon after completing his three-year online art studies through The Learning Connexion based in Wellington. While he has a low profile locally Yaniv’s work has now featured in more than 40 exhibitions, in four countries, and he’s received multiple awards, scholarships and sponsorships. He has sold more than 150 paintings, and his work is collected in New Zealand and overseas. Edith Symes

oo many people live in their head and not their body, say movement “geeks” Nicola Chung and Tommy Wilson.

The two friends who met and connected over their passion for movement at a Feldenkrais class a couple of years ago are holding a weekend workshop in Raglan in July where participants will explore movement and how it can be used to improve their lives. “Unleash! A movement camp” will combine principles of the Feldenkrais Method, which is claimed to reorganise connections between the brain and body to improve body movement and psychological state, with Movnat (fundamental human movement patterns such as jumping, throwing, balancing, crawling, etc), Nia and ecstatic dance and meditation. It’s not a boot camp or exercise regime focused on changing the shape of your body,

the two say. It’s about changing habits and the way you are in the world – about how to use your body to reach your full potential. “Over the last few years, with help of some training in the Feldenkrais Method, I have come to some important realisations about movement,” says Tommy, who lives in Auckland and has explored yoga, acroyoga, qigong and kempo throughout his life. “I have discovered that practising movement in a specific way is, quite honestly, life-changing. “Getting back into my body and out of my head has just been massive. “My body constantly gives me messages about what I should be doing … if I’m busy thinking about what’s for dinner, not being present in my body, I miss all that.” As an example, Tommy says playing with movement has allowed him to notice how he reacts to situations that are new and uncomfortable. “When a movement feels completely foreign to me I pay attention to what is happening. My breath might be restricted – I am holding it in. My fists are clenched, translating to a feeling of anxiety. I have these same habits when I am in any situation in life stepping out of my comfort zone – I will tighten my fists, clench my jaw, my breathing becomes constricted. If I am aware I can think, oh, I can start breathing again. It becomes more comfortable to be uncomfortable. “This is all about being where you are right now and making improvements to get out of that place. “It’s not a mental process, it’s about getting back into our bodies. The body and mind are intricately connected – if you can change your body then your mind changes as well. “It’s hard to talk about this stuff. You have to try it to understand it.” Nicola, a holistic massage therapist and

Nia dance teacher who lives in Raglan, says the way a person moves reveals a lot about them and what they may think of themselves. “Things they may have struggled with personally are revealed in how they move.” For example, a woman who walks with no hip movement may be struggling with her sensuality, or women with large breasts may hunch their shoulders because they are selfconscious of that. “Change that posture and you will change your outlook in life.” Insecurities, hang-ups and feelings of self-doubt are approached not through the mind but through the body. “Body posture is usually about emotions,” says Nicola, demonstrating. “If I’m slumping, down here, I feel sad in this posture, and I can’t breathe, but if I lift up I feel happy.” And exploring movement is a fun way to connect with how you are thinking about yourself because it is physical. For the workshop, Nicola and Tommy are targeting people who want to delve a bit deeper with movement – people who are adventurous, explorative, and want to have a better connection with their body. “You don’t need to be coordinated – we are taking you from where you are and going to improve you,” says Nicola. It doesn’t matter what size you are, what fitness level, whether you have a disability or an injury, “if you have a body and you want to move you can come”. Inger Vos * Unleash! A movement camp runs from July 28-30 at the Kokiri Centre, Riria Kereopa Memorial Drive, Raglan. Price ranges from $359 to $445 and includes meals and accommodation options.

Raglan Junior Sports Update Junior Soccer

Soccer in Raglan has been growing solidly over the last few years and 2017 is no different with record numbers again in the form of 200 players enrolled in 22 teams. Girls’ soccer continues its phenomenal growth with nine teams this year after we only started our first girls side in 2012.

Q+A with Pam Quirke PLUMBING & GAS LTD

Grant Mathis 027 222 0156

The number of boys enjoying soccer has increased too .We're also excited to see the Area School team into its third year as it gives our older players somewhere to play after they leave the junior club. The increase in size has left the fields bursting at the seams at our traditional Wednesday afternoon practice - even though lots of teams now practise on different nights - and we're hoping to get some help turning some of the Domain’s famous puddle areas into useful pitch space for next year. As for the jam up in the shed trying to fit all the equipment in, the less said the better. A big thanks on behalf of the kids goes out to the many volunteers who make junior soccer work in Raglan and especially those brave souls who helped with the fundraiser a few weeks back when the rain was going sideways during the worst weather of the season. Also, thanks to Satnam from Raglan Four Square for helping us out with yet another purchase of team shirts at the start of the season. Aaron Mooar

Junior Netball Well, what an exciting year to date for Raglan Netball Club Incorporated! Hot on the heels of a fantastic twilight season, we have a record number of competitive teams entered in the Waikato Netball Winter Series: eight junior and secondary teams and two open grade. Every player has given their all this season and our teams are showing the positive results of how much effort they are putting in. It’s so encouraging to see our teams training hard and playing even harder! This really highlights what an amazing region we hail from, and we are incredibly proud of the dedication shown by each and every club member, parent, caregiver, coach, manager and supporter of Raglan Netball. A huge thank you and shout-out to you all. We’ve also been very lucky to receive some incredibly generous donations this season from Raglan Lions, Raglan Four Square, Meridian Energy and some local anonymous donations. Thank you so very, very much! Your generosity has enabled us to purchase balls, first aid kits, bibs, gear bags, ice packs and more. We’re also trying very hard to secure funding to upgrade the current black uniforms – watch this space!

Junior Rugby

have had since 2010. Raglan sent seven teams to the Hopuhopu Championship and five teams got a placing in the competition. We have 20 amazing volunteers that run everything from registration to keeping the toilets clean. With 150 players we could always have more so any help is greatly appreciated. We have an awesome amount of sponsorships this year. We have 10 brand new gear bags thanks to Raglan Surf Emporium, Direct Tech and Concrete Services. We have new corner flags on order from Alpha Interiors and our prizegiving this year will be funded by RPB Safety’s sponsorship. We had an anonymous local donor to kick us off at the start of the season and also PGG Wrightson sponsored two new manager shirts for our new fantastic volunteers. We expect prizegiving to be early September along with a cleaning bee so parents and children keep an eye out for the date.

Pam, left, and Cassidy Hanna going down the waterslide on our special Te Mata Fun Fish Philosophy Day held on Thursday last week.

What changes have you seen at Te Mata over the last five years? Educational change in schools is frequent and fast paced. Effective schools are always in a constant state of change and innovation. More complex initiatives that have a major impact on student learning take approximately three years to research and study before the implementation process becomes evident in the school. For example, we began researching three years ago the most effective way of ensuring our Year 8 students leave Te Mata School self-regulated and digitally fluent. Together we developed a financially sustainable solution for our school and now all our Year 5-8 students have one-toone access on a Chromebook. Kathy Briant and Haylee Moeke who are leading the implementation of this initiative have been overwhelmed by the positive impact it is having on student engagement and student self regulation. The Minister of Education, the Hon Nikki Kaye, explained at the recent Cross-Sector Forum that our curriculum needs to keep pace with this fast-changing world. The new curriculum content, titled Digital Technologies, sets out what students need to learn to become not just fluent users of digital technologies but also skilled creators of digital innovations and inventions. Te Mata School is in a perfect position to begin exploring ways of implementing this new curriculum content that becomes mandatory in 2020. However, the change that I am most proud of is the change to Te Mata School’s leadership structure. The research into leadership structures, from education models, business models, international influences, and gender and cultural influences, started in 2011. Evidence of implementation started in 2014 and it has gained strength and become more dynamic over the past three years. We have a fully inclusive leadership structure that includes all employees and the board. We lead from a non-hierarchical position valuing individual autonomy and authentic leadership. We are fully committed to uplifting the individual capacity and capability of each other through explicit and purposeful interactions between each person.

The collective intelligence of all Te Mata’s people creates a strong cohesive team who are solution and learning focused. It strongly supports our Whakataukī (Māori proverb). ‘Ehara taku toa, he takitahi, he toa takitini’ My success should not be bestowed onto me alone, as it was not individual success but success of a collective What in your mind makes a great school? First and foremost a school that loves children! A school that puts the students at the centre of all decisions that are made. A school that respects the students for who they are and allows and assists them to make sense of themselves – to teach them to have the ‘courage to be yourself’. A school that focuses on building and nurturing sincere relationships with a focus on personalised learning and health and wellbeing. A school that is fun, happy, dynamic, inspirational and forever changing. Pam’s last words as Te Mata School’s principal: Being principal of Te Mata School has always been such a privilege. I have thoroughly enjoyed the learning that I have so proudly been part of. I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with so many amazing people who share the importance of Te Mata School being the success that it is today. The success of a school is never about one person, it takes a TEAM! Early in my career as principal I was told that schools and in particular rural communities are like long-standing soap operas … I became an extra in this soap opera 29 years ago, featuring as a rousie in many of Te Mata’s woolsheds. Te Mata School’s impact in this soap opera is 138 years old and still going strong. I became a new main character, as Te Mata School’s principal, in 2006, and now hopefully I exit the soap opera leaving it in a better place than when I arrived, allowing new characters to feature. In the past 11½ years in Te Mata School’s soap opera I have met so many people who have contributed so much, in so many ways! I sincerely thank you all and look forward to watching the rest of the soap opera continue to unfold as an extra, still as a member of Te Mata’s community.

We are committed to making sure that these core trade lines are always in-stock,” says Jack, Placemakers joint venture operator. “And if we haven’t got it, we’ll get it in. We will be measuring our success in this area and we will get this right, it’s a priority.” For dedicated trade sales, please call 07 850 0161 or email PlaceMakers Te Rapa are open 7 days a week, from 6.30am – 5pm Monday to Friday, 8am – 4pm Saturday and 9am – 3pm Sunday.

Hi, Iʼm Mark Tinetti. My family and I have been living locally in Raglan for two years now. I come from Nelson originally and started with Placemakers there 12 years ago. I later moved north to Kaitaia then Hamilton and finally Raglan. My partner is from the Waikato and weʼve returned to be closer to family here in Raglan. My daughter attends a local primary school and loves the beach and learning to surf. My partner is a high school teacher. Although we both work over the hill in Hamilton from necessity, we relish coming home here to Raglan. We feel so lucky to live here. Coming from Nelson the sea is important to me. Iʼm a keen fisherman and get out with a local fishing club as often as I can. Other things I enjoy include rugby, gardening and my two Swedish Vallhund dogs, who are particularly keen on a bit of beach time. Living in a smaller community like Raglan suits me and my family very well. I've met great people here and hope to meet many more. Talk to me about what Placemakers Te Rapa / Huntly can do for your building needs here in Raglan.

RAGLAN Chronicle 7

News from West Coast Health Clinic Meet the team:

We would like to introduce you to the new faces at West Coast Health: Sue and Teresa on reception and Dr Muhammad and Dr Susan on the clinical team.

Sue Kendall: Reception

Teresa Morgan: Reception

Sue Kendall has joined the team as a medical receptionist. Sue initially trained as an occupational therapist – and specialised in working with spinal injuries at the Otara Spinal Unit. She has had a varied working career, and her jobs have included being a driving instructor, health manager, ACC triage manager and walking school bus co-ordinator. Sue lives in Raglan with husband Gus, and enjoys sailing, waka ama, gardening and the relaxed Raglan lifestyle. She is thrilled to now be both living and working in Raglan.

Teresa Morgan has joined the team as a medical receptionist and a medical centre assistant, so some days you will find her on the front desk and on others she will be assisting Tracey and the nursing team. Most of you will recognise her as she worked at the local Westpac Bank for 16 years. Teresa and her partner, Mike, have been living in Raglan for 20 years. They have two young children and feel very lucky to be able to raise them in such a wonderful community.

Dr Muhammad: GP

Dr Susan Burslem: GP

Originally from Pakistan, Dr Muhammad graduated from King Edward Medical University, Lahore. He has been living and working in New Zealand since 2007 in different hospitals – Invercargill, Rotorua, Auckland and Hamilton – and is a specialist in emergency care. Muhammad will be working in Raglan for the next six months as a GP registrar for his rural appointment from college. He commutes daily from Hamilton where he lives with his wife and children.

Dr Susan Burslem has worked at the clinic over the last two summers and has joined the team again for the next six months. She lives in Raglan with her husband, Chris, and young baby son. Her post-graduate training has focused mostly on rural and women's health, so for those who need IUDs fitted or changed, book an appointment with Susan to save you travelling to Hamilton.

Vaccinations: Despite the amount of anti-vaccine messages in recent months, most people are still continuing to immunise their children. Making the decision to vaccinate can be extremely confusing for new parents as there is so much publicity, opinion and peer pressure surrounding the issue. For more information search: https://www.thescientificparent. org/vaccines-101-too-much-too-soon/ Flu:


Influenza will affect up to one in five New Zealanders every year and approximately 400 deaths each year in New Zealand are related to influenza infection. We have seen an increase in cases over the last three weeks. The virus spreads easily and hand hygiene and cough etiquette are effective ways to reduce the spread, but the vaccine remains the most proven way to ward off the flu. If you feel unwell you can help reduce the spread of the virus by: •

Staying at home if you are unwell.

Covering your cough or sneeze using disposable tissues.

Regularly washing your hands thoroughly with soap and hot water, and then dry your hands with a clean dry towel or paper towel.

Waikato is experiencing a surge in the number of cases of mumps we are seeing and our Medical Officer of Health is urging parents to ensure their children’s vaccines are up to date. There have been 15 probable or confirmed cases of mumps in the first six months of this year. Previously there had been no cases since 2012. Mumps is spread through coughing and sneezing and through direct contact with infected saliva. The primary sign of mumps is swollen salivary glands. Other symptoms include headache, muscle aches, fever, pain in the jaw and fatigue. Mumps is an acute viral illness and there is more risk of getting mumps at the moment if you are not immune. Children and young people are particularly at risk. There can be severe long term consequences such as infertility. The best prevention is to have had two MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccines. If in doubt, check your vaccination record with your GP. It’s free. People with coughs, sneezes and fever should try not to spread it to others and stay home if sick.
