Further delays hamper Edgeware pool plan BY GRACE CABELL Edgeware will be without a pool for another summer as the battle for its rebuild continues. The St Albans Pool Group, which has been pushing to rebuild the pool on the same site, lodged a resource consent application to the city council late last year. But the group has since been forced to relodge the application following information requests from the city council. Group secretary Valerie Somerville said the application was relodged after the group was asked to redesign the pool on a smaller area. She said water services had also asked for changes on where

the wells were to go, after finding out they were in the car park area. The new application was lodged in September but city council resource consents unit manager John Higgins said the information was yet to be received. A letter was sent to the group outlining the changes – which needed to be made by November 5. City council urban design and landscape planners outlined issues such as amendments to the building height, tree removal and parking. The letter also requested information about how cycle and pedestrian access would be available from Trafalgar St. •Turn to page 2

Focus on traffic and parking issues BY GRACE CABELL

In spite of major setbacks last year, community boards in the nor’west area are looking toward a busy 2015. The Fendalton-Waimairi and Shirley-Papanui community boards have set out their main priorities. Fendalton-Waimairi chairwoman Val Carter said this year’s focus will be on traffic and parking issues, and fast-tracking the rebuild of the Bishopdale Library and Community Centre. “Parking for the drift out to the nor’west is still a problem and we will continue with that one. Our big one although is the Bishopdale community centre and we will be working very hard on that. “We have put in a number of right-hand turns at lights and we will request more – the traffic patterns have really changed since the earthquakes,” she said. Mrs Carter said some of last year’s priorities had been significantly slowed down because of the city council’s lack of available funding. She said silver birch trees causing health problems should have been of higher importance to the city council. “It’s the one thing that really needs addressing in our ward,” she said.

Shirley-Papanui chairman Mike Davidson said there would be some big issues, projects and events that would highlight the year. He said focus would be placed on resolving issues with the Cranford St four-laning project. Mr Davidson said two other major priorities were the representation review and progressing the Edgeware Village Master Plan. “The stand out for me last year was getting the St Albans transitional community centre back into the hands of the community to manage,” he said. “We also ran a community conversation around local facilities in St Albans and have formed a working party with a number of community representatives to develop a submission to the long term plan,” he said. Mr Davidson said he hoped the submission would help progress a permanent community centre in the area.

Couple celebrate 70 years of marriage Ben and Jean Austen were recently joined by the majority of their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary. Mr Austen, 93, and Mrs Austen, 92 (born Stoddart), were married at St Paul’s Anglican Church, Papanui on December 23, 1944. The pair moved to Shirley after their marriage and raised four children, before moving back to Redwood. Remarkably, they have retained reasonably good health and still live independently in St James Ave – just a stone’s throw from where they were married 70 years ago. The couple have always kept busy with their own interests. They also take an active interest in the lives of their 13 grandchildren and 29 greatgrandchildren. When asked what the secret was to a long and happy marriage, Mr Austen quickly replied, “staying alive.”

LASTING LOVE: Ben and Jean Austen cut the cake on 70 years of marriage.

Summer is in full swing and surf lifeguards are out in force at our beaches. Emily Jones has volunteered at Taylors Mistake Surf Life Saving Club since she was 14. Reporter Bridget Rutherford talked to her about why she does it, who the most troublesome people are, and the funniest rescue she’s had to carry out. So Emily, tell me a bit about yourself. Well I grew up in Redcliffs so was always close to the beach. I started nippers lessons at Sumner pretty much as soon as I could swim and have been a lifeguard at Taylors Mistake since I was 14. I went to Cashmere High School and I am 21 now. I am a volunteer lifeguard at Taylors Mistake on the weekend and on weekdays I work as a paid regional lifeguard. So we get rostered on and rotate around the different beaches and I get to work with lifeguards from other clubs. So what made you want to become a lifeguard? I guess I’ve always loved being at the beach, growing up near one, and you get to help people. Just coming up through junior surf you see and idolise the senior lifeguards and want to do what they are doing. You learn a lot about the beach and the water and being able to transfer that knowledge onto other people is pretty cool. And what does your role at Taylors Mistake entail? We’re all volunteers so we are rostered on at different times. We have seven patrol teams that rotate with about 10 people in each. So on an average day we will arrive at 10am and someone will go for a paddle in the water to check the conditions. Then we put the flags up where the safest spot to swim is. We talk to some of the swimmers and tell them where it is safe to swim and we have someone on the tower looking out. We do all the preventative

stuff like moving people between the flags and removing glass from the beach and keeping it clean and safe. And then if anything goes wrong we do the rescues. So have you been busy over the holiday break? We work here from November through to March, so there were heaps of people down here over Christmas and New Year and it was really busy. The busy days are good, it makes the time go fast and it is good having lots of people down here. On a colder day it can still be busy because the surf is better when it is raining - more people come than you would think. Have you had to carry out many rescues? Yes, heaps. At Taylors this season there have been two rescues so far. It’s been a relatively safe summer with either no rips or small rips. Sometimes when the beach is full not everyone can swim between the flags and we will have to carry out mass rescues. What was one of the funniest rescues you have done? A couple of years ago I had to rescue a

AT PACE: Emily Jones (left) and her team at a surf life saving IRB competition.

TEAM EFFORT: Emily Jones (right) and her surf life saving team after competing. fully grown man, who had got cramp while he was out in the water. Usually surfers are really competent and help us out but I had to go out and tow him back in so he was quite embarrassed. That was quite a funny one. Do you ever worry about sharks when you are in the water? Not really, I know they could be there but hardly ever think about it when I’m in the bay. We do have shark sightings occasionally at Taylors but more often than not they are basking sharks which are harmless and wouldn’t bother swimmers anyway.

What is the most common complaint from beach goers? We’ve had a lot of blue bottles recently, so some people have been getting stung. Otherwise the black sand gets quite hot so there is a lot of towel hopping but most people are pretty happy to be out there. Who are the most difficult people? People who have had a few too many drinks can be a bit difficult to deal with, but that doesn’t happen very often at all. Being a lifeguard, do you ever get hit on when you are at work?

Oh, only a couple of times, I haven’t had any Baywatch pick up lines. The boys get hit on sometimes, everyone loves a life guard. Have you competed in surf life saving competitions? Yep, that’s like the other side of life saving. So I have competed at lots of different competitions. What do you think your best achievement at a competition was? I got a silver medal at the IRB Nationals for the single rescue in an inflatable boat so that was pretty cool.

What would be the best advice you could give to swimmers at the beach this summer? I guess just swim between the flags where it is safe, and if you go to a beach that is not supervised, don’t go by yourself. If you get into trouble in the water stay calm and put your hand straight up in the air. Float on your back if you can and wait for help to come. Other than that just stay sun smart and have a good time. Summer is awesome, it’s like a family down at the surf club.

Local heroes in national final BY GRACE CABELL

Two Christchurch people are on the shortlist to be New Zealand’s local hero of the year. Steven Parkinson-Loane of Redwood and Amy Burke of North New Brighton are among the 10 finalists shortlisted for the Kiwibank Local Hero of the Year award. The award recognises those who have made a lasting impact in their communities. Redwood resident Mr Parkinson-Loane created and runs Can We Fix It Yes We Canterbury, a voluntary group helping Canterbury people maintain their homes and backyards. For those suffering health issues, financial troubles or any other problems, Mr Parkinson-Loane rallies teams of volunteers to mow lawns, weed gardens, clear debris

and do light maintenance on properties. He finds people in need and often works up to 10 hours a day answering online requests, fundraising to cover costs, labouring and organising volunteer groups. Without Mr Parkinson-Loane the organisation would not exist. It is run solely on donations and the generosity of others, including fundraising from sausage sizzles and bake sales. North New Brighton resident Mrs Burke set up the Facebook page “Help for the homeless Christchurch” after concerns about what was happening on Christchurch’s streets. With the help of a friend, Help for the Homeless’ operational base is Mrs Burke’s kitchen table. They distribute warm clothing and food every night of the week to

the homeless people in the city. The operation has also attracted support and donations from businesses and volunteer nurses to treat the homeless. Chief Judge Cameron Bennett said this year’s calibre of nominations was high. “Some have worked tirelessly to making other Kiwis better off while others have inspired us through being the very best at their chosen fields,” he said. The winner will be announced at the New Zealander of the Year Awards evening in Auckland on February 25. Last year more than 200 local heroes from around the country received medals at a special ceremony acknowledging their contribution. More than 230 nominations were received for 2015.

CHUFFED: City councilor Phil Clearwater with local hero award finalist Steven Parkinson-Loane during the award ceremony when local winners were announced.

Youth to benefit from donations for website

DONATIONS: Kiwanis member David Gower, Soroptimist member Ann Hudson, Kiwanis member Graham Chick and Soroptimist president Lena Metcalf present Korowai Trust chairwoman Dr Sue Bagshaw the cheques.

Korowai Youth Well Being Trust received donations from two Christchurch based global organisations recently to make a website. Soroptimist International of Christchurch and Kiwanis Service Club donated a total of $28,000. Trust chairwoman Dr Sue Bagshaw was presented the cheques which were raised from fundraising activities over the last two years. Earthquake money was also donated to help the youth of Christchurch. Soroptimist International of Christchurch

publicity officer Lesley Fursdon said it was worthwhile giving a donation because the trust knew what it wanted to spend the money on. She said Soroptimist had heard Kiwanis was also raising funds and they decided to join forces. The website would have an interactive page for youth to ask questions and would feature information on how to keep mentally, physically, spiritually and socially healthy. The trust is dependent on donations to run the free service.

It has been a case of playing well in one format but struggling in the other for St Albans and Burnside while Marist-Harewood and Old Boys have had harder seasons so far. Going into Saturday’s games Burnside and St Albans led the two-day and one-day competitions respectively while Old Boys were mid-table and Marist-Harewood were struggling. Burnside finished runner-up in the Twenty20 competition played in November. They are also the leaders of the two-day competition 10 points ahead of nearest rivals Lancaster Park-Woolston. Burnside coach Alex Reese said they had a “very good” start to the season winning all three two-day games outright and he put it down to the bowling unit. “I think with the two-dayers it’s our bowlers that give us the X-factor and it’s our great young spinners coming through.” Reese said young leg-spinner Blake Coburn had performed exceptionally well and was in great form. In the penultimate round Burnside face off against Lancaster Park, which could be a title-deciding clash. St Albans were unbeaten over the Christ-

mas break winning all six of their one-day games and sat at the top of the ladder, three points above East Christchurch-Shirley. The match between those two sides is in the last round of the competition and is shaping as a decider for the top spot before the semi-finals. St Albans faced a tough task in their first game back after the break on Saturday in the form of Canterbury Country at Halswell Domain. Marist and Old Boys are having a tougher time across all formats. The Redwood Park-based Marist have failed to keep up with the competition and are at the foot of the one-day table and only one place better in the two-day format. There is a bright spot on the horizon however as three of their final four two-day games are winnable. Riccarton, Old Boys and Sydenham are all beatable teams for Marist and they will be looking to end the season on a positive note. Old Boys meanwhile sat in sixth place in both formats over the Christmas break. In the two-day format they managed only one win and sit only five points above the bottom placed side. There is still hope in the one-dayers however with the Elmwood Park side going into the second half of the season one point outside the top four with three games still to play.

Don’t cause an ‘idiot’ fire BY MARK THOMAS - FIRE RISK MANAGEMENT OFFICER

First of all, happy new year to everyone in Christchurch. The last week or so has seen summer finally making itself felt with high temperatures and warm nights. Christmas Day itself saw firefighters attending 14 incidents in the city. That’s about average for any other day but we did see one call assisting St John that resulted in the death of the patient. Makes it an awful Christmas for that family. In another case in Mountbatten St, New Brighton, Christmas dinner was ruined when the barbecue preparing it set fire to the garage. Assisting our ambulance colleagues accounted for 14 calls in the past week while false alarms were down and miscellaneous fires, those in bins, rubbish and couches were right up there with 32 attended. This last category includes bad luck, recklessness, stupidity and straight malicious arson as the cause of fire. In nearly all cases they were preventable. Thinking before acting would be a good start for many of those responsible. It would be fantastic if 2015

CHARRED: Don’t leave the kitchen when pots are on the stove. saw a reduction in these ‘idiot’ fires. I would also be really tickled if our message about staying in the kitchen when stove top cooking was adopted right across town. Both of these things would free up fire trucks, so there is no delay the next time someone is trapped in a burning house or a crashed car or even where it allows our appliance to arrive two minutes before the ambulance to a cardiac arrest.

Any of which may just save a life. I think everyone is now aware we are in the middle of what looks like being a very dry summer. Yet, we’re still seeing deliberately lit fires occurring at an undiminished rate. Those involved are creeping out of the nuisance category towards being a real danger. Makes you wonder if they ever think of consequence, or more

frightening do they really want to see property destroyed and people or pets hurt, or worse? We’ve also seen a number of incidents, including one that spread to a house before New Year, that appear to have been caused by fireworks. These are restricted in their sale to the week before Guy Fawkes. But a significant number of people store them away to use at or near New Year’s Eve, when grass, bushes and pine needles are desperately dry. You can be charged with arson for carrying out a reckless act that causes fire. Lighting fireworks that spurt out brightly burning clusters, at night, on the side of a hill, with a northerly breeze further drying the already parched vegetation, may be seen as reckless by some. Do you really want a court to decide in your case? Harewood’s crew met a unique challenge last Tuesday in Avonhead. A man had a swarm of bumble bees which had taken up residence. Apparently beekeepers don’t normally deal with these apiarian jumbo jets so the occupant tried to smoke them out. Hence a call to us. Some communications centre magic tracked down an expert. Hopefully, now all is solved.

true that allergies can fluctuate with the season as allergens, like pollen or mould spores, wax and wane. And some food allergies seem to disappear as children grow older — with the exception of peanut and tree nut allergies, which largely continue into adulthood. But the underlying cause of any allergy is an overreaction by a sensitive immune system that perceives the allergen as a threat. Over time, mid-line, we help to stimulate your immune system may grow and even outtothe of our accustomed anflow allergen and yin/yang energy (in yoga terms no longer react as strongly.

The inner cleanse — with a twist BY DENISE FERGUSON

Imagine taking a soiled sponge, submerging it in water and then wringing it out. Submerge it again and repeat. When you rotate your body around the spine in a yoga exercise, you do the same thing to your internal organs. This increases circulation of nutrients, blood and oxygen and helps to flush out impurities. Not only do twists aid in detoxification, but they help to balance out the flow of our energy. As we rotate the body from left to right, we stimulate

both hemispheres of the brain, in turn balancing out the yin and yang flows of energy within our body. Energy flows up, down and in positive and negative directions. The yin, feminine and anticlockwise (or negative) flow of energy magnetises things to us. It is associated with the right brain and left side of the body. The yang, masculine and clockwise (or positive) flow of energy is associated with the left brain and right side of the body and is associated with outwardly seeking the things that we are attracted to.

Baby monitor Sids claims slammed Baby monitor Sids claim Medical experts are slamming an Australian author for linking wireless baby monitors to autism and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. “The claims made in this book would be laughable, if they weren’t so irresponsible,” says Telethon Kids Institute head of autism research Professor Andrew Whitehouse. “This is fearmongering at best, and unethical at worst.” Brisbane author Donna Fisher is calling for the removal of wireless baby monitors from Australian shop shelves because she believes they emit dangerous radiation.

In her new book, Light That Heals, she claims electromagnetic fields generated by wireless technology have the potential to cause cancer, reproductive problems, chronic fatigue and more. She is also concerned the exposure can increase the risk of Sids and is a contributing factor in the rise in autism. “Devices such as wireless baby monitors can actually do more harm than good by creating developmental issues in our youngest generation of Australians,” she says. But autism expert Whitehouse says there is no evidence to suggest a link between the use

Maintaining independence through homecare services Providing nursing and homecare services that allow people to maintain as much independence in their own home and community as possible is a large part of Nurse Maude’s work.

N

urse Maude’s homecare is available to anyone recovering in their own home from an accident or surgery, those who have been assessed as needing support and those with a life-limiting illness. Housework and personal care tasks can be difficult under these circumstances, and homecare is key to an increased quality of life while living safely in familiar surroundings. For personal care, an assessment and care plan is completed by a registered nurse so Nurse Maude’s support workers can then provide assistance with dressing and undressing, personal grooming, bathing, toileting, and mobility needs and meals. Personal care services are available seven days a week when needed. Support workers also provide domestic assistance which includes household tasks

such as laundry, vacuuming, dusting, dishes, bed making, meal preparation and essential shopping so clients can leave the hospital earlier or stay in their own home. This service is available from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. Nurse Maude’s homecare services are free to those assessed as being eligible for this support, but there is also a private payment option for those not eligible for funding. Referrals to homecare services may be made directly by clients or their families/ whanau, GP, Needs Assessment and Service Coordination Agencies, ACC or public or private hospitals.

xercising with stiff and painful joints can be difficult, but it is worth persevering.

Arthritis New Zealand offers water-based exercise classes at Burwood Hydrotherapy Pool and land-based exercise classes in Avonhead, Beckenham, Hornby, Linwood, Papanui, St Albans and Sumner.

Classes are held weekly and are run by physiotherapists or trained volunteers. Medical approval is required to attend. Some classes are funded by Canterbury District Health Board, while others cost $4 to $6 per session.

Natural supplement

to support weight loss Effective and fastest working

A

n extract of a small pumpkinlike fruit called garcinia cambogia from India and Asia has shown itself to greatly assist weight management and overall health. In fact, many have found it to increase fat loss by two to three times greater than normal. Even The Dr. Oz Show on television noted it is the most effective and fastest working natural supplement to support weight loss. Even without exercise and diet changes, many have found it beneficial although even better and quicker results are often obtained with extra exercise and an improved diet. The extract of this amazing fruit is called hydroxycitric acid (HCA) or CitriMax. Research has shown HCA to help suppress the appetite, reduce cravings, feel fuller for longer, increase energy levels, help prevent fat from being made and stored in the body, increase lean muscle mass, increase serotonin levels in the brain that help control mood and sleep (great for

emotional eaters), improve cholesterol levels that may help reduce the chances of strokes and cardiovascular disease, help prevent sugar spikes as well as other health benefits. It is considered a very safe supplement (although check first if you are on medication) as it has been used for centuries as a flavouring agent and digestive aid. To obtain reliable results, it is important to take a product that contains a standardised extract of 60 per cent HCA and also take the recommended amount as used in the clinical research. Some supplements also contain ChromeMate, a well-researched form of niacin-bound chromium to help improve the results even more.

Garcinia camboGia According to Dr. Oz an extract of Garcinia Cambogia, (a small pumpkin-like fruit) called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or CitriMax, is the most effective & fastest working natural supplement to support weight loss. Researchers found it: • Helps stop fat being made & stored in the body • Suppresses appetite & cravings. Feel fuller for longer • Increases energy levels & lean muscle mass • Increases Serotonin levels in the brain, especially good for emotional eaters. Serotonin may also improve mood & sleep. • Improves cholesterol & blood lipid levels Swanson Super CitriMax provides a maximum potency researched clinical strength extract for reliable results.

CoQ10 reduces all causes of mortality by 50 per cent Researchers were amazed with the results of how beneficial a natural nutrient co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is to the human body. CoQ10 is a natural enzyme in the body’s cells that is essential for cell function, energy and survival. The heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas require large amounts of CoQ10 to function well.

I

n a recent multi-country double blind trial on the possible benefits of CoQ10 to protect against heart failure, 420 patients with severe heart failure were given CoQ10 or a placebo and then followed for two years. It was found to the amazement of the researchers the patients who received the CoQ10 had a 50 per cent reduction in an adverse cardiovascular event or death compared to the placebo

patients, and not only this, but the patients on the CoQ10 had a 50 per cent reduction in death not only from cardiovascular events but from all causes. According to the lead study author professor Mortensen, this study is the first in over a decade to show a natural nutrient can reduce heart failure mortality and CoQ10 should be added as a standard treatment for anyone with cardiovascular complaints. It is known that CoQ10 levels decrease in the heart muscle of patients with heart failure as severity worsens. Statin drugs are used to treat many patients with cardiovascular problems, but these drugs also reduce CoQ10 levels further in the body. Symptoms of low CoQ10 in the body can be low energy and endurance, muscle pain, poor memory, concentration and poor heart function or heart failure. CoQ10 levels are known to decrease as we age and many researchers believe keeping our levels up of this vital nutrient may help prevent many chronic diseases, including cancer. CoQ10 is available as a natural supplement to support good health. Visit Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, or phone 388 5757.

Free Youth Pathways courses help students to succeed

Youth Guarantee is a Government-led initiative designed to help students aged 16 to 19 to study for free.

T

he scheme is for those who are ready to move beyond school but want to continue with study, learning practical skills for future employment. Hundreds of students are successful through the programmes every year, which includes courses in cookery, construction, engineering, health and support, business administration and computing, hospitality, retail, sports training and Maori and Pasifika culture. Many go on to work in apprenticeships or further education. Youth Guarantee student Dylan Dallas feels like he is now achieving something after finding school wasn’t working for him. He now feels motivated after completing his Creative Level 2 programme. “I found it really hard to learn at school and nothing I was learning felt relevant to me,” Dylan says. “The Youth Guarantee course was really interesting. We did lots of creative prints and 3D modelling. It got me used to studying again, but in a better way than school.” Dylan will return in 2015 to study his Certificate in Design Level 4, but in the future he hopes to become an architect or a

draughtsman. “This has put me on the path to a future career. I had no idea of what I wanted to do before, whereas now I’m in the right place and on the right track.” Fellow student Juaan Whatuira-Edwards recommends Youth Guarantee to anyone who “doesn’t fit in academically”. “I didn’t really like school and I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I’m pretty grateful I found Youth Guarantee and got myself some skills,” Juaan says. Juaan has completed the introduction to trades course and will return next year to do the pre-trade paint and panel course. “I can’t wait to get back into it and learn more. The tutors are really helpful and it’s really hands on. I really want to make this Make money from ‘Misteaks’ my career.” Request more Become a Book Editor and Proofreader information on the Learn at home by Youth Guarantee correspondence programme and how Work on magazines, to enrol by emailing newspapers & websites. youthtransition@ Writing and photography too. cpit.ac.nz or Toll free 0800 801994 by phoning Get FREE information about how to earn income from home. 0800 24 2476. 9240496AA

likes mastering the art of beauty

urrently studying a Diploma in Beauty Therapy at The National School of Aesthetics, Jordan “enjoys the practical application of ideas,” and the beauty programme is the perfect opportunity for her to gain these strengths. She’s passionate about makeup, waxing, manicure and electrology. Despite no secondary school qualifications due to lack of interest at school, Jordan’s strong grades at NaSA reflect her passion in the beauty field. After researching other beauty institutions, Jordan chose NaSA as she respected NaSA’s professionalism, strong reputation and welcoming staff. She also feels her classmates make her study more enjoyable. Jordan’s not only starting a beauty career for herself but also for her two children, Ashton (6) and Noah (3). NaSA’s 9am to 1pm class times have helped her negotiate study and motherhood. “Without NaSA’s flexible hours, it would have been impossible for me to study,” Jordan says. Other challenges include completing larger projects and homework while ensuring her children’s needs are met. Her children have grown to have “a deeper understanding of homework.” After completing her diploma, she plans to study NaSA’s Certificate in Nail Technology. Once Jordan has mastered these skills, she’ll open her small business from home while “comfortably negotiating my role

Making dreams a reality

WHAT’S

For Ali, the most rewarding part of her study has been an increase in her confidence level 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 Year 3 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. Visit www.aoraki.ac.nz, or call 0800 426 725 for more information on getting your career underway.

li Phillips has always known what her dream job would be. Through Aoraki Polytechnic, she has been able to take the first steps along the path to making this a reality. Studying at Aoraki’s Christchurch campus, Ali has completed her second year of hairdressing, a Certificate in Professional Hairdressing, Level 3. “I have always wanted to be a hairdresser since I was little - it has been my passion for many years,” says Ali. “I had grown up doing hair, cutting my Barbie doll's hair and generally fascinated with hairdressing.” With no experience in the industry and having to balance study with the needs of her family as well, 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. “These last two years 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.”

Introducing

Rud Stewart Europe's Premier Rod Stewart Tribute Artist

20

Monday January 12 2015

31

Billed as one of the best Rod Stewart tribute acts, Rud Stewart performs two Christchurch shows - at the Cashmere Club this Friday night (16th January), and at the Hornby Working Mens Club this Saturday night (17th January). Hailing from Yorkshire England, Rud has been performing his tribute shows to Rod Stewart for the past 15 years. Often mistaken for Rod Stewart and a life long fan himself, he covers all of Rod's hits from the 60's through to the current day and latest album. His shows have been seen in many corners of the world and he performs regularly in the UK, Sweden, Las Vegas USA and Majorca Spain. Rud is that good he was invited to perform at the Rod Stewarts 60th birthday party. When asked what his career highlights have been so far, Rud lists meeting Rod and performing at his 60th birthday party, singing at the Olympia football stadium, performing at the Helsingborg Festival in Sweden, and having his own song ‘Same Game’ played on BBC Radio 2. Tickets to next weekend’s shows are $20 on sale now at the respective club offices. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Europe’s premier Rob Stewart tribute artist backed by a full band. Members, guests & affiliates welcome.
