Police crack down on youth at mall BY GABRIELLE STUART
Police are clamping down on groups of youth causing problems at Eastgate Shopping Centre. Four officers were stationed at the mall from Tuesday last week, and they are expecting to stay there for several weeks. Several young people were arrested for disorderly conduct, assaults and breaching their bail conditions. Some youth were trespassed from the mall for shoplifting or vandalism, and others were “taken home to their parents”. Inspector Peter Cooper said
issues with youth congregating around the mall had been growing over the past months. “It has changed around Eastgate over the past couple of months. It has become a congregation point for youth. So it has been a real opportunity to reconnect with the youth and with businesses there.” He said the aim was to “change the environment” around the mall to prevent problems in the future. Centre manager Mike Smith said there had been a lot more problems with youth at the mall than usual, particularly around people breaking their trespass orders. •Turn to page 7

Boy racer ban for parts of Woolston BY GABRIELLE STUART Boy racers will be banned from parts of Woolston, at the request of police and local businesses. Between the hours of 10pm and 5am, only “legitimate users” will be able to use five industrial area roads. But the ban may be temporary. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board has asked for the ban to be reviewed within 12 months. They have also asked for the city council to look at ways to solve problems with boy racers across the whole city. Board chairman Paul McMahon said the ban would solve issues in the immediate area. But he said it would not solve wider problems around boy racers. “They may not meet there anymore, but the same problems will go on at the next place they meet.” There were 21 submissions from businesses in the Woolston area in support of the proposal. Many said young people gathering at night in the area had vandalised or damaged their property. But McMahon said the majority of young people out in their cars at night were not causing problems, or doing anything illegal. “As a city we need to continually remember that we need to get alongside young people in the city and not just be condemning towards them.” He said he would like to see specific areas developed where young people could meet.
▌IN ▌ BRIEF Rock climbing success
Josh Cornah of Cashmere reached the semi-finals of the World Youth Rock Climbing Championships in New Caledonia, the highest placing out of the 13 New Zealand athletes who took part. Nathan Bothamley of Hoon Hay also competed at the championships. The students took first and third placings at the national championships last year to qualify for the competition.
The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board has made the first step toward solving mobility parking space problems in the ward. They have asked for a new mobility park to be installed on Grove Rd in Addington. Problems with mobility parking spaces were found at more than 20 centres and shopping areas in the ward during a review last month. LEAVING A MESS: Police picked up more than a bin full of rubbish after a recent gathering of boy racers in Woolston. Local businesses have complained about rubbish, damage and vandalism left after the gatherings. But he believed that was unlikely to happen soon, because the city council finances were tight. In the meantime, he said he would like to see more collaborative work with young people to solve the problems. “It will get better if we continue to work with young people to ensure they know they have a place in the future of our city.” The board has asked for a report on whether any alternative measures had been successful in man-

Nga Puna Wai is the proposed site of a sports hub for Christchurch.
Nga Puna Wai is 83 hectares of recreation and esplanade reserve and other park land beside Canterbury Agricultural Park in southwest Christchurch. Council staff and other sporting groups have identified it as the preferred site for a new athletics track to replace the one lost at QEII Park in the Canterbury earthquakes. Following strong support from Christchurchâ€™s recreational and sporting community, the Council is now consulting with the wider
community on the proposal to establish a sporting hub at Nga Puna Wai using the athletics track as the initial, key development. The proposed hub would also contain hockey fields, tennis courts, general-purpose sports fields and a grandstand. The proposal, if adopted, also requires changes to the Nga Puna Wai and Canterbury Agricultural Park Management Plan, which will enable this type of development on this reserve land.

House prices drop BY GABRIELLE STUART While people are asking more for their properties in most parts of the city, that isn’t the case in Addington, new statistics from Trade Me show. The statistics look at average asking prices for properties listed for sale on the site in suburbs across the city. The average asking price in Addington was $258,000 last month, a 15.8 per cent drop since the average recorded at the same time last year. That was the biggest drop recorded in Canterbury. The average listing price across Canterbury is $441,600, which has risen 12.6 per cent over the last year. But real estate agent Adam Heazlewood from Bayleys Real Estate Canterbury put the drop down to the election. The Trade Me statistics averaged the prices of properties listed in the suburbs from July to September, and compared them with the same period last year. Mr Heazlewood said that a lot of buyers in the area were people looking at investment properties. He said the market had slowed because of uncertainty leading up to the elections. “I think that is something that has been quite well documented

– that the property market does lull before an election. And it has certainly improved since.” But even without taking the elections into account, Mr Heazlewood said he was surprised by the figures. “I know that a lot of people are investing in the area, and there is a lot of interest in most of the properties we list there.” He said he had not sold a house in the area for less than $300,000 over the past few years. Only suburbs with more
than 10 listings in the months recorded were included in the Trade Me statistics. The statistics include apartments and units, but not bare sections.
MIDDLE OF THE RANGE: A twobedroom unit in Addington, currently listed on Trade Me for $265,000. The average listing price in the suburb last month was $258,000.

Local politicians hope to speak to people who would not usually go to meetings, at an open session tomorrow. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board has planned a series of monthly sessions in the community, where members will be available to talk about any issues or concerns. The first will be held at New World St Martins from 4pm to 6pm tomorrow. Board chairman Paul McMahon and board member Helene Mautner will be there. Mr McMahon said there were a lot of important decisions coming up, including around the city council District Plan Review and Long Term Plan. “It’s a very important time for people to have their say, because these decisions will shape the community.” Dr Mautner said the board hoped to engage more with the community, particularly people who would not usually go to board or residents’ association meetings. People will be able to raise any problems or issues they are having at the sessions, and she said the board would do its best to help. “We’ll go through them afterwards and see which issues have to go back to the board, and which can be resolved by a telephone call.” She said individual board members had done similar things in the past, and it had proved a good way to canvas issues in the community. The next community session will be held next month, and is likely to be held in Addington.

Living below the breadline to raise Last week Canterbury University student Hannah Rhodes spent five hungry days living below the poverty line spending only $2.25 per day to eat. Her aim was to raise money for global sex trafficking victims through sponsors. Reporter Grace Cabell spoke to her about her motivation and her involvement in nonprofit organisations. Hannah, can you tell me a bit about yourself? Sure, I’m in my fourth year at Canterbury University. I’m particularly interested in issues of social justice and human rights which I’ve really become more involved with throughout my time at the university. Have you always lived in Christchurch? Yes I have. I grew up in Avonhead and went to Riccarton High School. Why did you decide to get involved with charity organisations? I’ve been involved with various charities throughout school and university. I’ve noticed there are a lot of charities out here in New Zealand but none with a specific focus on sex trafficking. That was when I really started getting interested in that. I think people see it as something that doesn’t involve New Zealand, but research shows a huge amount of New Zealand men participating in sex trafficking overseas. It’s really a wider gender equality issue. So what organisations are you involved with? This year there was the opportunity to run an arts internship, so I took that up. There are seven
interns and 20 volunteers who are part of The Abolitionist Society. The aim of this is basically to raise awareness for sex trafficking. I was actually contacted about it by Daniel Walker – the founder of Nvader, a group which aims to free victims of sex trafficking. What does The Abolitionist Society do? We had a week where we had a range of events each day. We held an art exhibition, Nvader founder Daniel Walker spoke, we had a debate about sex trafficking and a quiz night to raise money and awareness. When did you begin to get involved with Nvader? Well the Canterbury University political science department hosted Nvader at the start of the year, which was something which I organised. Then we branched out and created The Abolitionist Society.

Some of the members in that have worked overseas; one in Muldova and one in South Africa and India. They were both working against sex trafficking, so we have quite a lot of experience between us. Hannah, what motivated you to ‘live below the line’? It’s just a really small thing that I can do. When you look at sex trafficking, it’s one of the most severe human rights violations I can think of. So, yeah, for me it’s a really small thing. Tear Fund is the charity that raises money for Nvader and what they’ve done is made a targeted list of the campaigns across New Zealand. So basically you just sign up and it’s all done for you. I think it’s a really effective way rather than asking for money. So a day living below the line. What is it like? I have had some porridge for breakfast. I’m tired though. I have two dinners to go to this week which will be the most difficult thing. Generally really tired … the main thing is resisting walking past the fridge. I’m planning a big batch of vegetable soup for lunch. Hopefully, that will wake me up. Honestly the hardest thing is going without sugar, the cravings.

sex trafficking awareness
ON A MISSION: Members of The Abolitionist Society taking a stand against sex trafficking. They are (from left): Kendra Titheridge, Samantha Kidby, Maria Joyce, Hannah Smith, Hannah Rhodes, Mikaela Ruegg, Becca Ottinger and Abigail Egden. How much have you raised so far? So far I’ve raised about $1330. It’s only taken about a month which is cool. I just encouraged small amounts but I found when people started reading into it they donated more. So far as a group we have raised $8000 for Nvader. I think we have also convinced 20 people to join, which is great as there are only actually eight people in the society itself. What was it about this issue that stood out to you? Look, there are now more slaves in the world than there ever has been before. It’s a really big issue and it’s just crazy that
people in New Zealand don’t know about it. Is there anyone out there who inspires you, or that you look up to? I think at the moment I’ve been really impressed by the things Emma Watson and Angelina Jolie have been doing around gender equality. Sex trafficking overly disproportionally effects women so I think celebrities going out of their way and celebrities using networking to portray a message is awesome and needs to be done more. What are some of your other interests? Well, I actually just got a sum-
mer scholarship which I’m really excited about. It’s to help Linda Cruse to start up a non-profit organisation. She looks at disaster zones, in terms of natural disasters. She has done work in the Philippines, Pakistan earthquakes … she’s really amazing and we’re lucky to have her in Christchurch. So what’s next for you? I’m looking to grow the society into a non-profit organisation nationally and expanding it out so students all over New Zealand can get involved. We’re planning to make the affiliated society next year … it’s an idea at the moment but it is definitely
Relax and let Refresh take care of your renovation
something we would pursue. What goals do you have for the future? I want to work in a non-governmental or a non-profit organisation. Is there anything you would want to say to people interested and involved in helping out in more global issues? I just want people to really get involved. It’s such an important issue. Go and tell people about it. The fact is that people don’t know much about it at all. It’s crazy, especially considering university students are the ones going around travelling; they really need to be more aware.

Youth at mall in spotlight
•From page 1 He said there were several groups of youth causing the problems. “The difficulty is that you can’t pinpoint it to one or two people causing problems – if it was that simple the police would have gone and had a chat with them and cleared it all up quite easily.” He said that most of the young people were in their teens, between about 13 and 18, so the problems became worse in the school holidays. Since the police had been stationed at the mall, he said the problems had been reduced. He said the community had been very positive about having the police stationed at the mall. “I think it is a good thing for the area. It’s been really good for the community to have the caravan in the car park there and some extra police presence, just so people can walk up and talk about any issues they might have.” Inspector Cooper said a date had not yet been set for the team stationed at the mall to leave. He said that they would stay involved in the area even after they left. The Phillipstown Neighbourhood Policing Team and community constables in the area tried to keep a regular presence at the mall, he said. “Our community constables are a little more mobile now than they once were, so staying in the mall completely isn’t what we want. But we will try to have more engagement with the business owners at the mall in the future.” He said the officers were enjoying the chance to talk to people in the community about what was going on in the area. “Often there are things you don’t know are going on until you talk to people on the ground, so it has been good for them to have that opportunity.”

Barriers installed to curb fishing on pier BY GABRIELLE STUART
Desperate measures may not be needed to solve issues with fishers at the New Brighton Pier, thanks to barriers installed last month. The city council was considering a blanket ban on fishing at the pier, because of the numbers of people fishing in the no fishing zones. During busy times, visitors were not able to reach the end of the pier because it was so crowded with people fishing.
But instead of a ban, the city council trialled barriers around the no fishing zone last month. Burwood-Pegasus Community Board member Tim Sintes said they were proving effective. He said there had been big crowds at the pier recently, but fishers seemed to be respecting the boundaries. “I think people know it is the last resort before we take some real serious steps, so they are respecting it.”

He said that before the barriers were installed people often said they didn’t realise they had stepped into the no fishing zone. “Now they don’t have that excuse.” The measures will be reviewed this summer, and if the problem becomes worse other options will be looked at. Those include fencing the fishing area, banning some types of fishing, and creating a separate fishing platform attached to the pier.
A free financial health seminar, aimed at helping people to make good financial decisions and access good advice, will be held at Opawa Baptist Church from 7pm on October 30. The seminar will be led by Andrew L’Almont of Baptist Savings. For more information or to register, phone Robyn on 379 7680.

Richard Freeman director of Onyx Homes says “people need to be very careful and it’s a real concern with a lot of these new “so called” building companies entering the market with management at the helm with no clue on how a building company actually runs. We are seeing plumbers and electricians starting up building companies here in

A new health & beauty store you will love
rett Heaney and his team at Christchurch’s newest Homestead Health and Beauty outlet at The Palms are thrilled with their brand-new store and its extensive range of products. The store, which is located near Countdown in The Palms, opened on September 20, and is the third Homestead Health and Beauty in the city – the other two are at The Hub Hornby and the Bush Inn Centre, Upper Riccarton. Store manager Debbie Coulter has already gained considerable experience in the natural health and beauty industry, having managed three health shops in Wellington. She is assisted by Jenny Pierce, who previously worked at the original Homestead Health and Beauty in New Brighton. Jenny says, many former customers from that store have been very pleased to find the new store at The Palms. With their qualifications and experience, Debbie and Jenny ensure that customers will benefit from their knowledge and expertise in all aspects of natural health and beauty, and they offer friendly, professional advice
“We look forward to building up a new customer base on this side of the city, and hope to develop strong relationships with everyone, from young families to mature adults, as the other Homestead Health and Beauty stores have done.” Another benefit for customers is the long-established loyalty club, which rewards them with discounts and special offers. All three Homestead Health and Beauty stores offer an exceptional shopping experience, as has been demonstrated in recent customer satisfaction survey responses, which showed that 100 per cent of customers were “extremely happy” with the services offered. “We welcome the opportunity to meet with you at The Palms store, and assist in helping you improve your health.” New Homestead Health and Beauty, The Palms, Shirley, located next to Lotto shop, Countdown end, phone 385 0364.

on the most suitable products for people’s health and skin care needs. “We have one of the largest ranges of natural health and beauty products in Christchurch, which includes our very popular everyday specials on some of our most popular items, for example, fish oil, glucosamine and protein powders in our sport zone section,” Debbie says.

ids have great parties at Chipmunks Wigram. Chipmunks Wigram is proving a popular venue with families returning to repeat the experience. Those returning from last year are enjoying the upgraded playground. The older children are enjoying the new seven-metre inflatable slide. The younger children are fascinated by the LED slide and enjoy rolling on the waterbed. While “pay to play” is very popular, many children choose to celebrate their birthdays at Chipmunks Wigram. Once the venue is booked, parents only need to manage the guest list and organise the birthday cake. That’s unless they choose a yummy Chipmunks’ ice cream cake – great for children on hot summer days. Parents enjoy parties at Chipmunks Wigram as they have time to socialise with family and other parents, without the pressure of hosting at home. They choose their party duration, and guests still enjoying themselves can stay on till closing time. This summer, Chipmunks Wigram is offering a free helium birthday balloon for the birthday child at all birthday parties booked from November to January – an added incentive to have your party at Chipmunks Wigram.

Time to spice things up a bit PAKORAS Serves 6 Use a wok to fry these spicy, battered, vegetable snacks. Heat the oil until a faint haze rises.
BANANA AND HONEY ICECREAM Serves 3 Homemade banana icecream is an instantly gratifying snack. Healthy and icecream don’t usually go together in the same sentence, but in this case they do!
1 cup Oil Directions Finely slice all the veges and grate the carrot. Sift flour into a bowl with spices and baking powder. Add onion and enough water to make to make a moderately thick batter. Add veges just before frying. Heat about 3cm oil in a wok. Take dessert spoons of the vege mixture and deep-fry quickly to prevent the pakoras absorbing too much oil. Drain on paper and keep warm while preparing the remaining pakoras. Tip: You can substitute chickpea flour for plain flour. Yoghurt combined with finely chopped mint makes a great accompanying dip.
Ingredients 1 cup Besan (chickpea flour) 1 tsp Ground cumin 1 tsp Turmeric 1 tsp Coriander ½ tsp Allspice ½ tsp Cinnamon ½ tsp Chilli powder ½ tsp Salt ¾ tsp Baking powder 1 Onion ¾ cup Water 80g Cauliflowers 80g Broccoli 80g Cabbages 80g Spinach 80g Carrots INDIAN STYLE CABBAGE Serves 4 Ingredients 1 Tbsp Rice bran oil, or use coconut oil if you prefer the taste 1 tsp Black mustard seeds 10 Curry leaves, use up to 15 ½ tsp Fresh ginger, finely chopped 1 Green chilli, chopped ½ head Cabbage, chopped, not as fine as coleslaw ½ tsp Ground turmeric ½ tsp Ground coriander
Directions Heat the oil in a heavy based pan or a small wok on a high heat. Once the oil is hot add the mustard seeds and curry leaves (these will pop, so be careful), fry for a minute then add the chopped ginger and green chilli. Fry for another minute then add the cabbage. Stir fry another couple of minutes then add the turmeric and coriander and season with salt and one grind of pepper. Stir fry for another couple of minutes and serve.
Ingredients 3 Bananas, large, ripe, peeled and sliced ¼ cup Thick greek yoghurt 1 tsp Vanilla essence/extract 2 Tbsp Runny honey
VEGETABLE CURRY PUFFS Serves 20 Ingredients ¼ cup Oil 1 Onion, small, finely chopped 1 Carrot, grated ½ tsp Turmeric 1 tsp Chilli 2 tsp Coriander 2 tsp Cumin 1 cup Spinach, shredded 300g Potatoes, boiled and mashed roughly 150g Kumara, boiled and mashed roughly ½ cup Fresh coriander, chopped Pastry 3 cups Plain flour 200g Butter
2 Eggs, yolks 2 cups Water 1 bottle Oil, for cooking ¼ cup Sweet chilli sauce Directions In a frying pan heat the oil, then add the onion and carrot. Cook for 4 or 5 minutes until soft. Add the spices and cook for a further 3 minutes until fragrant. Stir in the spinach, potato and kumara. Leave to cool, then stir through the chopped coriander. Place the flour in a bowl and rub through the butter to resemble breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolks and water, then mix to form a dough. Roll on a floured bench to 3mm
Directions Place bananas in a dish lined with baking paper and freeze overnight or at least 8 hours until frozen hard. Thaw bananas for 5 minutes (this will make it easier to blitz) and place in food processor with yoghurt, vanilla and honey. Process until smooth and the consistency of ice-cream. Serve immediately or return to freezer until ready to serve. thick and cut into 11cm circles. Place 1 tablespoon of filling on to each circle, fold in half and roll the edges to seal. Refrigerate until needed. Half-fill a wok or frying pan with oil. On a medium heat, fry the puffs until crisp and golden. Serve with sweet chilli.

Glow of hope over cancer surgery risk Remnants of tumours pinpointed by dye technique A third of patients who have surgery to remove cancerous tumours end up with microscopic pieces left behind. These overlooked remnants can lead to the recurrence of cancer after what was thought to have been successful surgery. Two surgeons at the University of Pennsylvania have tried to solve this problem. Their solution: making tumours glow. Using a combination of injectable dyes and highresolution cameras, the surgeons found a way to image tumours during surgery and more easily identify their margins. They published their findings in the journal PLoS One. “Once you get into surgery you’ve only got your eyes and your hands to tell you where the margin of the cancer is,” says David Holt, lead author of the study and professor of surgery at the Penn School of Veterinary Medicine. Tumours could be studied before surgery with MRIs or CT scans, but these images were helpful only to a certain extent, he says. After an initial study in mice, Holt used the new imaging technology on eight dogs with
naturally occurring lung tumours. Holt and his team injected the dogs with indocyanine green, a dye that accumulates in tumours more than in other tissues because of their leaky blood vessels. The dye emits light in wavelengths that cannot be seen by human eyes. But when the doctors shined a nearinfrared light on the tumours during surgery they glowed an “Incredible Hulk green” on computer screens linked to the cameras. With the help of this real-time image, Holt could make decisions about where to make incisions during surgery on the dogs. The successful dog study led to approval for a human clinical trial run by Sunil Singhal, a co-author on the study and assistant professor of surgery at Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine. Using the same technology, which he compared to nightvision goggles, Singhal examined lung and chest tumours in five human patients and the tumours fluoresced strongly. Singhal also used this imaging approach in another study published in the Annals of Thoracic Surgery. In two out of 18 patients

with lung cancer, the imaging system helped surgeons identify cancer in areas that had previously been undetected. Singhal is already exploring its applications in other cancers,

use for most patients, even pregnant women. But the dye Holt and Singhal used can be detected at depths of only 10mm to 15mm in tissues, leaving deeper areas unexplored. Also, the dye does not specifically bind to tumour cells so adjacent tissues can also collect dye. Singhal and Holt plan to use targeted dyes in future studies that are molecularly selective for tumour cells as well as continuing to improve their camera technology. Their work is not ready for mass use. But Singhal hopes it will lead to more sophisticated approaches, including threedimensional holograms of tumours generated during surgery. — AAP

T Jessica Graham
Academy New Zealand’s Pharmacy training programmes open many doors for the future.
any of our graduates are offered full-time positions once they have completed their training, but for Jessica Graham this is just the start of her journey in Pharmacy. One that will see her move through to Pharmacy Technician training once she graduates in February 2015. Tutor Barbara Colville is impressed with the standard of all this year’s students and is able to confidently recommend to employers for future employment. Jessica had a passion for Pharmacy while still at Lincoln High School, so it was a
natural move for her to enrol in the course once she left. Jessica is supported by Rolleston Pharmacy where she is undertaking the practical side of her training, one day per week in Work Placement. Colville is certain that on graduation, Jessica will be more than ready to undertake the next steps towards achieving her dream.

is a minefield for editors
By Jack May
he Parker Pen company has a powerful slogan. “A Parker Pen won’t leak in your pocket and embarrass you.” Plans to market the pen in Mexico came unstuck when the translation wasn’t proofread before publishing. The correct Spanish word for ‘embarrass’ is ‘avergonzar’ but it was erroneously translated as ‘embarazar’. Thus, in Mexico the slogan, “A Parker Pen won’t leak in your pocket and make you pregnant” was published. “Proofreading can be tricky,” says Brian Morris, Principal at New Zealand institute of Business Studies. “That’s why publishers often ask us for proofreaders who are competent in two languages.” Another blooper happened when the Pepsi slogan, “Come alive with the Pepsi generation” was translated into Taiwanese, “Pepsi will bring your ancestors back from the dead.” Readers who are interested in becoming professional proofreaders or book editors are invited to get the free information pack which explains the one year training process.

Studying at Aoraki’s Christchurch campus, Ali is currently completing her second year of hairdressing, a Certificate in Professional Hairdressing (Level 3). “i have always wanted to be a hairdresser since i was a little - it has been my passion for many years,” says Ali. “i had grown up doing hair, cutting my Barbie doll’s hair and been generally fascinated with hairdressing.” With no experience in the industry, and having to balance study and the needs of her family, 26-year-old Ali found the perfect fit at Aoraki. “i’d been looking for a hairdressing course for some time and Aoraki seemed to suit my needs,” says Ali. The Level 3 full-time course runs over 34 weeks. it is designed to provide students with all the skills needed to work in a commercial salon environment, including working with clients to advance their cutting, consultation, colouring and styling techniques. “This year and last year have both been very challenging and equally rewarding,” says Ali. “i have enjoyed every minute of it and love working with the people that have come through the course so far.”
I wa qual nt a if that ication i likel s most y to me a get job... GREAT OUTCOMES and further study pathways
Ali Phillips For Ali the most rewarding part of her study is the increase in her confidence levels, and learning how to interact with the general public on a professional level. Aoraki Polytechnic’s tutors are involved and respected in the industry, and provide invaluable links for students to the industry itself. Ali is creating a portfolio of her work, which will play an important role when seeking an apprenticeship next year to complete her three-year qualification. Students are encouraged to aim high, with Ali intending to follow her apprenticeship with a full-time hairdressing position. “My long term ambition is to open my own salon,” says Ali. Qualifications in hairdressing are available at Aoraki Polytechnic’s Timaru, Dunedin and Christchurch campuses.

hen a friend recommended Jonathan Milne’s book Go! The Art of Change to Anne Bannock, she looked into studying at The Learning Connexion, the school of art and creativity based in Wellington, which Jonathan founded and directs. She realised that its study-from-home part-time option suited her down to a tee. “My lifelong ambition was to go to an art school and to be part of the creative energy that goes with it, to enter a new world of understanding modern art and new ideas,” says Anne Bannock. Situated in picturesque Ngatimoti, artist Anne has made a studio retreat that caters to her creativity and to the public. “My studio is a converted cowshed, which serves as my studio and gallery, and is open to the public in the summer.” The Advanced Diploma programme has been the best programme of study for Anne to follow, allowing her to discover new techniques and skills to add to her extensive creative repertoire. “Everyone i have met has been helpful, especially the tutors. i have met some students when i attended a block class and now i follow their progress via the magic of the workroom, TLC’s online student forum.” if you’d like to enquire about studying at The Learning Connexion School of Art and Creativity, call us on 0800 278 769, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Approximately 330 square metres of home rests magnificently on the 11,910sqm botanical setting. Built in 1991, architecturally designed and well maintained. A major refurbishment and modernisation project has been completed and all cosmetic EQC repairs signed off: quality carpets, selected draperies, new decor, including tiles and an exterior makeover.

The rain-fed lake is a picture and provides one of the many alternative “hideaway spots” for relaxation and reading. A colourful setting with selected mature trees and specimen shrubs. “A blaze of colour in the spring and summer”. There is so much
to admire about this unique property that only viewing will convince, then only owning will satisfy. Buyers price guide is from $1.36 to $1.44 million.

David La Planche takes a break from his Australian circuit to return home with one show at the Hornby Workingmens Club this Friday (17th October).
Seniors! Warm up with THIS
He will perform the ‘Magnificent Seven’ (comprising Cliff Richard, Elvis, Neil Diamond, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Ricky Nelson, Bobby Darin) with special guest Peter Williams (ex Max Merritt & the Meteors) backed by some of New Zealand's top musicians. Tickets on sale now at the club office.
two course lunch deal
David's musical career began at the age of 11, winning a talent quest in his home town of Waimate singing Buddy Holly's "Oh Boy". From here he formed his own bands, performing nightclubs, dances, cabaret shows, Caroline Bay Christmas carnivals and private functions throughout New Zealand. Opportunity beckoned in Australia with a variety of gigs including cabaret, RSL and leagues clubs. David appeared on Australia's number one music show, Brian Henderson's "BAND STAND" and other TV shows. He also entertained the American troops on "R n R" from Vietnam. The UK then beckoned. In London David won a talent quest which resulted in securing cabaret shows in Scotland, Germany, Italy and all over the UK. Returning to Australasia, David played a mixture of nightclubs, cabarets and toured his “Cliff Richard Tribute Show”. Other shows in his repertoire include "The Music Of Bobby Darin", "Cliff and Elvis, the Early Years", "6 of the Best Performing the Songs of Cliff Richard, Elvis, Bobby Darin, Ricky Nelson, Buddy Holly and Johnny Cash". David particularly enjoys the work he does with children at schools and was a finalist in the Coca Cola NZ Music Awards in Auckland with his children's CD "A Hand Full Of Songs". David and his family now live in Sydney, Australia where David is working on his music career.
