Tennis lighting battle coming to a head „„ By Tom Doudney A LONG-running battle between residents and the Cashmere Tennis Club over its plans to install 10, 8m high lighting poles may be coming to a head. The club had to cease work on installing the lights in March after residents complained to the city council that they hadn’t been consulted. Public consultation on the plan, which would see four of the club’s 13 courts lit, closed at 5pm yesterday. The SpreydonHeathcote Community Board is expected to make a recommendation for the city council’s head of parks to consider in July. Residents are concerned about light spill over as well as the noise which would be generated by players using the courts up until 9.30pm at night, when the lights would automatically shut off. An earlier proposal to install lighting at the club in 2009 stalled after it was also opposed by residents. The club’s latest proposal has already been granted resource consent. Committee member Stuart McHarg said the club hadn’t been

aware that public consultation and further approval were also needed, so work beginning early had been a genuine mistake. “This is a community project and we are not trying to do anything but improve the community,� he said. The club had spent between $50,000 and $60,000 on the project already and he remained confident that approval would be given. The fact that resource consent

had already been granted showed that lighting and noise were not expected to be a significant issue, he said. Crichton Tce resident Terry Young disagreed that the effects would not be significant. “If they light four courts you will hear expletives, you will hear tennis balls being hit, you will hear their cars and you will see light.� Residents were also concerned

that the club would seek to install more lighting towers and hold larger tournaments. Mr McHarg said the club was one of the few in the city which didn’t have lighting for its courts and getting it would mean junior players no longer needed to travel to Wilding

CHOCOLATE CHEWED OVER AT COUNCIL A HEATED discussion was quelled at a city council meeting last week when a councillor was told to “eat a Snickers.” During last week’s meeting, city councillor Jamie Gough joked that fellow councillor Glenn Livingstone should have a snack during passionate discussions over a deputation presented to the

city council. The popular American chocolate bar’s motto is: ‘You’re not you when

you’re hungry.’ Perhaps Cr Gough felt Cr Livingstone needed a bite of chocolate to calm down.

News New Woolston bridge planned „„ By Tom Doudney A DEVELOPER has asked the city council to pay $50,000 for a new public footbridge in Woolston but would pick up most of the estimated $450,000 cost himself. The Tannery developer Alasdair Cassels made the proposal for funding the bridge over the Heathcote River in a submission to the city council’s draft Annual Plan. The bridge would be part of a wider project for the site, adjacent to the Tannery which would also include a wharf. Mr Cassels, who has recently appointed an engineer and architect for the project, said in his submission that he would like to see it completed by early next year. He believed the bridge was needed because the road bridge on Garlands Rd was dangerous for pedestrians, with a narrow pavement strip, and vehicles had been seen mounting the pavement as they turned on to the bridge. “You wouldn’t want to wheel a pram across the [road] bridge and you would be pretty careful about kids,” Mr Cassels said. The development of The Tan-

UNSAFE PASSAGE: The Tannery developer Alasdair Cassels says the Garlands Rd bridge is dangerous for pedestrians. He is pushing for the city council to help fund a footbridge. nery had created more foot traffic in the area, he said. Mr Cassels said he would cover most of the remaining $400,000 for the footbridge himself, with some contributions from other businesses in the area. The overall project, including the wharf, was expected to cost him between $600,000 and $700,000. The design of the proposed bridge would be an “ornate” art

nouvelle style and Maori fusion. The wharf would be large enough for a historic river boat to berth, waka and kayaks to be launched. Land on both sides of the river would be landscaped, with a picnic and family area on the eastern bank. As well as helping The Tannery, the project would help the overall revitalisation of the lower Heathcote River area, Mr Cassels

said. Deputy mayor Vicki Buck said she couldn’t reveal whether Mr Cassels’ funding request had been recommended before the draft Annual Plan came back to the city council for approval on June 21. “I can’t say what is going to be in the draft budget but [the project] has been very well considered,” she said. “We are looking at helping.”


In Brief PEOPLE’S CHOICE City councillor Phil Clearwater has been selected by leftleaning group The People’s Choice as its candidate to contest the new Spreydon-Cashmere ward at local body elections in October. The group also named SpreydonHeathcote Community Board chairwoman Karolin Potter, members Melanie Coker and Helene Mautner, as well as builder and project manager Lee Sampson as its candidates for the new SpreydonCashmere Community Board. CORONATION HALL The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board is planning on consulting residents on the future of Coronation Hall in Spreydon Domain. The hall was damaged in a fire in December and would cost $237,000 to repair. A date for the consultation is yet to be decided on. The city council has recommended that the hall, as well as the Spreydon Borough memorial gates at Barrington Park, be given heritage listings as part of the district plan review process. The independent hearings panel is yet to decide on that recommendation.

Veterinary practice

TINKER – THE SURVIVOR There is never a dull moment at McMaster & Heap vets and funnily enough the critical serious cases mostly show up on weekends, or 7pm at night. I’d arrived into work one Saturday to help out and Tinker was in our surgical area, having just been transferred from the After Hours Clinic. He looked terrible ( his face had taken the full impact of a collision with a car) but he was on a fentanyl drip and his pain seemed well managed. Miraculously he had survived and his success story is due to not just our surgical efforts that Saturday but also the events that took place by many people prior to us seeing him. His accident happened Friday night and some great human being saw him on the road and immediately delivered him to the After Hours clinic, which incidentally saved his life. We are so fortunate to have an emergency centre open through the nights and weekends when other clinics have closed. The team there swiftly examined and stabilized Tinker and started him on pain medications, antibiotics and intravenous fluids. Then his owners were contacted as Tinker wore a collar with nametag attached. This means of identification (or a microchip) is so important because without an owners consent we can’t really treat a critically ill patient to save its life. He was monitored and cared for all night until he was dropped off to us Saturday morning. Even though it was a weekend with less staff rostered on, I knew Tinker couldn’t wait until Monday for surgical repair. His lovely, worried owners wanted for us to do “everything” we could to ensure Tinker came home. That’s where our outstanding team need

to be greatly commended, because regardless if any of them had plans that night, they all, without me asking, stayed late to ensure the best possible care and attention was given to a critically ill patient. Tinker was anaesthetized, his skull was radiographed and I repaired his mandibular jaw fracture with wire and his hard pelate injury. He had a massive gnash under his chin that required suturing and he had several broken teeth. A feeding tube was placed in his oesophagus to enable us and his owners to feed him post operatively. Cats with fractured jaws can take weeks to eat on their own. Steve was called in to assess his eyes as they were completely closed over and I wasn’t sure whether he had retinal injuries, lens or corneal damage. Luckily Steve felt there was no ocular damage, just a lot of bruising and facial swelling. Tinker was managed intensively over the coming week, his days spent with our hospital nurses and nights at the After Hours. He needed everything done for him from feeding six times a day, loads of medications to be given, his face washed and he needed grooming as he couldn’t do this for himself. His owners visited him daily and he really loved their visits. He was the perfect patient to treat – he was stoic, obliging and grateful. Tinker was a FULL TEAM effort and I’m so pleased to report he’s home now, lounging on beds, walking around his section, able to groom himself and even eating a little on his own. Steve and I couldn’t do the job we do without the dedicated, caring staff we have.

News Preserving history through models „„ By Tom Doudney A HISTORIAN is preserving some of the fast disappearing heritage of one of the city’s original suburbs by creating scale models of buildings, maps and a book. Spreydon resident Mike Burdon has created about 20 models of Addington buildings, with the latest being the 152-year-old Enfield Villa in Burke St which is set to be demolished. Mr Burdon has also created maps of Addington both before and after the earthquakes and has been working on compiling an extensive history of the suburb which he hopes will be published in book form. He began the project four years ago, after being motivated by the ongoing demolition of buildings following the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes, much of which he saw as unnecessary. “A lot of the places are being pulled down to make way for these new flats and it’s just capital gain – ‘to hell with history, we’re here to make money’ – no consideration of what has happened in the past or restoring any of these buildings,” Mr Burdon said. He was frustrated that Heritage New Zealand had declined

HERITAGE: Mike Burdon has created about 20 models of Addington buildings including this one of the Woods Brothers’ Flour Mill and the Enfield Villa on Burke St (below). PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN to give some buildings heritage status due to alterations made to them over the years. “I’ve been an artist all my life, it’s a natural gift to me and I thought ‘why don’t I go ahead and create something out of this which will last another 100 years?” Mr Burdon said. “I would like to have somewhere where I can put them on permanent display, like a museum, and charge people a donation to come and see it and

the money would go to charity organisations in the community.” Since starting with St Mary’s Church, his other models have included the suburb’s other original three churches, the Woods Brothers’ Flour Mill in Wise St (including its former bowling green), the Addington Prison and the old Lincoln Rd railway station. He is planning to do models of two more cottages, two more

shops and possibly the original school which was based on what is now the Addington School site.


In Brief SCHOOL SAFETY The Somerfield Residents’ Association has requested roading and signage changes to improve safety around Somerfield School. In it’s submission on the city council’s Annual Plan, the residents’ association asked for 40km/h speed limit signs to be installed on Somerfield St and Barrington St, and that a traffic island be installed on Selwyn St near the Cooke St intersection on the grounds that many children crossed the road here. THEFTS FROM CARS About seven cars in the Cracroft area had belongings stolen from them or were broken into between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning last week. A number of items were taken, including wallets. Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said several of the cars had been unlocked and the thefts were a reminder for people to lock their cars and either remove valuables or at least leave them out of sight. PROGRAMME FUNDING The Woolston Development Project has applied to the HagleyFerrymead for a $1000 grant to fund its Depot After-School Programme. The grant would fund rent for terms two and three of the programme. City council staff have recommended that it be approved.

Our People

Ruth Gardner

Retired but still involved in community Ruth Gardner worked as Volunteering Canterbury’s manager for more than 20 years until she retired last month. Fraser Walker-Pearce talks to her about voluntary work after the earthquakes, running the show at wedding ceremonies, and living with the town crier How long have you been involved with Volunteering Canterbury for? I’ve been involved with Volunteering Canterbury for 21 years. And what have you achieved in that time? They weren’t just my achievements, I was leading a great team that led a whole group of volunteers and encouraged volunteering throughout Canterbury. Sure. How many volunteers did you get into the community in your time? Do you know the number? Thousands in my time, I probably couldn’t tell you the exact number. After the earthquake there was a lot of informal volunteering, and it took time to become more formal again. By the end of my time there, we were having a couple hundred volunteers a month applying. Okay, so who is next in line for your job? The organisation has decided now to have two managers, one that does marketing outreach, and she’s been there for four years, and there’s a new man that will be coming in too. What was some of the work you got involved with because of the earthquake?

RECOGNITION: Mayor Lianne Dalziel spoke at Ruth Gardner’s retirement function to recognise her work for Volunteering Canterbury over 21 years.

Well we had a lot to do with clearing liquefaction off the streets with the help of volunteers, the Student Volunteer Army and the Farmy Army. We made sure those people that needed help got it. How many people are involved in Volunteering Canterbury? There are only two paid workers full time, but there is another group of about 10 who help out voluntarily. They do store work, accounting, PR work, stores or expos, website, trust board, all kinds of things, whenever we needed something we knew where to find those people. Wow, sounds like you’ve had some busy days? It was always busy, always varied, and there was always something different every day. It keeps you on your toes. Did you still feel like that at the end of your 21 years?

Yes, absolutely, I still feel like that, I had just had enough of full time work, so now I’m able to do other things which is great. Oh that’s good then. What do you do in your spare time now? I still actually do a bit of voluntary work, I chair the residents committee in the Avon Loop, and that’s with a lovely bunch of people too. At the moment we’re working hard to rebuild a local community centre. There’s seven on that committee, and others help around the place. I’ve been involved for quite a long time. But since the earthquake the need has become different for a lot of communities. We also have a community cottage that we maintain and rent out. With Volunteering Canterbury did your role change after the earthquake to more of an emergency recovery mode? Yes it did, in fact we had to put some of our policies to the side


after earthquake. Because there were urgent things that had to happen right away, and a lot of informal volunteering took place. It was also a bit difficult in terms of health and safety with people going around those dangerous chimneys. Are you from Christchurch? I’ve been here for 30 years and I was also brought up here, so I’ve spent more than half my life here, but I was born in Auckland. I went to St Albans Primary School, and then back to Auckland when I was about 10, and lived there for 20 something years, but now I love Christchurch and I wouldn’t leave. Oh that’s good to hear! What high school did you go to? Epsom Grammar in Auckland. I don’t have a degree but I did feminist studies at Canterbury University and a bit of study at the polytechnic. And I’m actually

a celebrant too, with the certificate and everything. Wow, you’re qualified all over the show. Well, when you’re in the voluntary sector you never know what will come in handy, and what different skills are useful. And now that you’ve retired from Volunteering Canterbury, do you plan to do a bit more with your celebrant’s certificate? Oh yes, absolutely. Now that I’m retired I’m hoping to do more celebrants work. Do you know how many weddings you’ve done? Oh, I really don’t know. I’d say about 100 weddings, but a lot fewer since the earthquakes. But I’m hoping now to have more time to do more weddings. I’m also a keen blogger, I write about anything that’s going on around here, and anything to do with the central city. I’ve been doing that for 10 years, and I have more than 1000 followers, which has taken a long time. But that’s on realruth. if you wanted to have a look. Very good, I definitely will. What are some other hobbies? I enjoy my garden and I write poetry. I write mainly rhyming poetry, I joined a group of women poets, and I like to walk and relax with friends. And are you married with kids? Yes, I’m married and two adult daughters who both live in England. Both near London, one is a lawyer and one is an IT manager. They’ve done very well, yes. And does your husband work still? Yes, he does – he’s actually the town crier. It makes for some interesting conversations for sure. He’s originally from England, but he’s been doing that for about 26 years. He started five years before me, to the day. He’s very keen to keep doing that. Where in the city are you based? We’re in one of the remaining little old cottages in the Avon Loop now.

​ harity that helps C most vulnerable falls on tough times

HARMONY: Choir member Dorien Pel, standing with red scarf, fifth from left, with the choir in 2007.

Choir’s heartfelt tribute „„ By Tom Doudney A TIGHT-KNIT choir group have recorded a song for the funeral of a terminally ill former member now living in the Netherlands. Women in Harmony recorded East Timorese hymn Ita Hotu Maromak Nia Povo We Are God’s People at the request of Dorien Pel who is dying of cancer. Ms Pel was a long time member of the choir up until about six years ago when she first developed cancer. When her house was damaged in the September 2010 earthquake, she moved back to her country of birth, the Neth-

erlands, for what was supposed to be six months. But the stay ended up becoming permanent. In spite of surgery, the cancer had returned and Ms Pel was already planning her funeral in the Netherlands when she returned to Christchurch for a visit in December and January. Choir member Judi Smitheram said choir members had met Ms Pel at a social gathering and sang together again. “Dorien was wonderful at always bringing poetry to our gatherings and she had written a poem especially for us,” Ms Smitheram said. It was during this visit that Ms

Pel asked if they would record the song, which the choir had not performed in more than eight years. The choir sourced a recording of the song from Australia’s Radio National station to help them go over it and get the pronunciation right, as the words are in the Tetum language. After recording it, they sent it to Ms Pel. “We got a lovely note back from Dorien saying how much she appreciated it and she was very moved,” Ms Smitheram said. Women in Harmony has about 20 members from around Christchurch.

„„ By Tom Doudney A LOCAL trust which acts as a problem solver for vulnerable, disadvantaged and struggling people around New Zealand said it is in urgent need of funding. SigJaws Trust helps people in a variety of ways, from lobbying for retention of services, suggesting changes to legislation, finding work and housing and promoting innovations. However, project manager Gary Watts (right), who founded SigJaws in 2001, said the trust had been struggling financially for some time and needed more funding to carry on. The trust’s operating expenses were “conservatively” about $207,000 a year and while it had enough to carry on over the next six months, finding new funding was a big challenge. “We have got over 200 clients now that we are dealing with on a day-to-day basis and a lot of these people have slipped through other systems

big-time,” Mr Watts said. One of its recent projects has included working with Canterbury University to develop a robotic arm which would allow mobility-impaired drivers to fill up at petrol stations without leaving the car. The trust had received funding from organisations including the Ministry of Social Development, the Rotary Club of Christchurch and The Lion Foundation within the last year. However, it had been unsuccessful in seeking funding from the Red Cross, the Canterbury Community Trust and the city council. “If our funding dries up it’s just impossible to carry on,” Mr Watts said. SigJaws Trust board member Jamie Hoffman, who has cerebral palsy said Mr Watts had been pivotal in helping him find suitable accommodation after the earthquakes. “People just don’t realise how much good he does out there,” Mr Hoffman said.

Tradesmen off to national skills competition „„ By Matt Salmons TWO TRADIES will put their skills to the test when they represent Canterbury in the national Worldskills competition later this year. Spreydon plumber Jesse Pitts, of On Tap Plumbing, and Marshland welder Liam Robertson, of Lyttelton Engineering Company, won their places after completing two challenges tai-

lored to their trades. The pair, both 19-year-old Ara alumni, will travel to Hamilton for the national competition which runs from September 29 to October 2. Here they will be competing for a place in New Zealand’s Worldskills team, the Tool Blacks, which will take part in the international competition in Abu Dhabi in 2017.

Robertson was tested on his welding abilities and Pitt on making piping using different materials. They were judged on speed, accuracy to plans, ability to use materials and tools and the quality of their finished products. Ara plumbing tutor and judge of the plumbing competition Blair Maguire said all the competitors were reasonably even, and the

final decision might come down to one point. The international Worldskills competition is run every two years. It pits young men and women from all over the world against each other in a competition of skill based on their profession, be that plumbing, carpentry, baking or any of the more than 40 categories. Ara tutor and regional competi-

tion facilitator for plumbing Ritchie Gorrie said Worldskills was the “Olympics of trades.” Mr Gorrie has been to three international Worldskills events and was impressed by the skilllevels on show and the interest in the competition internationally. He said there were about 200,000 spectators in Leipzig, Germany in 2013, with bricklaying drawing the biggest crowds.

Architects honoured for designs FIVE BUILDINGS in the north-west have been honoured in this years Canterbury Architecture Awards held on Thursday. The awards, announced at an event at Hagley Oval Pavilion, are part of the peerreviewed awards programme conducted by the New Zealand Institute of Architects. The design by Dalman Architecture of Acland House on Papanui Rd, a Christchurch Girls’ High School boarding hostel, was one of two winners in the Heritage category. Athfield Architects picked up two awards for its design of Rugby Park’s new offices and high performance facility in the commercial architecture category and for St Margaret’s College’s Winchester Precinct in the education category. Herriot + Melhuish Architecture Ltd design of St Bede’s College Durham Dormitory picked up an award in the small project category. Thom Craig Architects also picked up an award in the small project category for its design of the Mega Tower in Merivale. Dennis Chippindale, this year’s awards convener, led his jury through 40 shortlisted

projects over eight “marathon” days of judging. “Five years on from the ’quakes, these awards provide us with a way to survey the profession, to see how we are responding to the challenges,”

Mr Chippindale said. Impressed with the overall quality of work, Chippindale also said now is the time for greater aspiration to be applied to the form of the developing city.

AWARD WINNERS: Acland House (left) in Merivale was one of two buildings that won in the Heritage category.

These projects are eligible for shortlisting in the New Zealand Architecture Awards, which will be decided later in the year, and announced in November.


Students tackle water issues RUDOLF STEINER students Renata Lorinez-Konya and Daisy-Bea Scrase have taken part in a week long programme looking at issues in Canterbury waterways. The pair were involved in the Waterwise programme along with 12 other students from eight different schools from around Canterbury. They were selected by their school as emerging leaders. The programme focused on the decline of health in Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere and other water quality issues affecting Canterbury. The students stayed at Ngati Moki Marae at Taumutu while they attended environmental presentations at Lincoln University, visited farms, took water samples from streams, assisted the Department of Conservation with restoration projects, learned about the cultural importance of water resources, and heard from activists and youth leaders. The programme was organised by by a group of organisations including Untouched World Charitable Trust, UNESCO Global Action Programme, Environment Canterbury (ECan), The Rata Foundation, Te Rununga o Ngai Tahu, The Clinton Global Initiative, Ara Institute of Canterbury and Canterbury University. Lorinez-Konya said the programme left her feeling passionate about making changes in the world, and not just to do with water.

Ballet dancers from the Canterbury Ballet and the Southern Ballet Theatre received numerous awards to help further their ballet training. The competition presented by The Christchurch Ballet Society and PW Dance & Sportswear providing scholarships for aspiring dancers looking to further their careers. Ballet dancers travelled from Invercargill, Nelson and Marlborough to compete in the event. The event was aimed at dancers from the age of 12 to 19 years and was judged by established ballet dancers Anna Beretennikova, Peter Boyes and Pauline Tronson-Germon.

Students’ stop bullying LINWOOD COLLEGE students have used Bullying-Free New Zealand Week and Pink Shirt Day to set an example about respect and acceptance. English language learners used their own ideas and language to create posters encouraging their peers to not be bystanders to bullying incidents and help create a positive atmosphere. The schools head of English language learning Navjot McCormack said the approaches and solutions used to combat bullying were often adult driven and did not typically include input from students. “The idea was to put the students at the forefront of this campaign and encourage an open dialogue on how they saw bullying and what they would do to address it,” Mrs McCormack said. “Students welcomed the opportunity to unleash their creative side and educate everyone, from teachers to fellow students, on ways to eliminate bullying in our communities.” Mrs McCormack said this was also a chance to teach social literacy. “This is vital because today’s technologically savvy youths are interacting less and less with each other in person. “Social literacy helps prevent bullying as it gives students the

Pupils’ promote smoke-free fires MONEY EARNED through a kindling fundraiser at Woolston’s Te Waka Unua School will help pupils travel to national aerobics and hip hop events. Environment Canterbury launched a kindling fundraising campaign at the school on Wednesday as part of its Warmer Cheaper programme. The programme is designed to encourage people who burn wood for home heating to have smoke-free fires, while achieving warmer homes and saving on firewood costs. All funds raised go to the community group, charity or school selling the kindling.

Te Waka Unua School principal Janeane Reid said funds raised would be used to help pupils travel to Dunedin to compete in the NZCAF National Schools Aerobics and Hip Hop Championships later this year. “We have noticed that Woolston is a reasonably smoky suburb in winter, so this is the perfect opportunity for us to teach our students and their family how they can save money while looking after the environment and reducing air pollution in our community,” she said. “It’s a great, hands-on fundraising initiative for students to be involved in because it edu-

cates people about the process for easily making a smoke-free fire and this will have a genuine impact in our community.” To participate in the kindling fundraiser, members of a group or organisation just need to bag the kindling ready for sale. Kindling is delivered in trailer loads along with bags, ties, stickers and burning instructions to put inside the bag. Kindling orders can be placed until the end of July, and any unsold bags of kindling can be returned at no cost. Anyone wishing to register can email fundraiser@warmercheaper.

BETTER BURNING: Te Waka Unua School pupils bag kindling with Environment Canterbury Cosy Home team member Nola Collie.

DENTURE SOUTH Where technology meets art


he well-established denture clinic in Barrington, Denture South, has been owned and operated by dental technician Andrew Johnson since 2002, and since then he and his team have built up a reputation in the community for professional, friendly and caring service. Three years ago a second Denture South was established in Hornby to service the western suburbs, originally as a temporary clinic. However, a few months later, as Andrew realised people in that area found it more convenient than travelling to

HERE TO HELP Your Local Friendly Dental Technician

Andrew Johnson

Barrington, it became a permanent clinic with the opening days extended from three to five. Now, there has been another change, with Andrew selling the Hornby clinic to experienced dental technician Chris Castle, who has been working with him for three years. Following the transition stage, the changeover will become official in early July, with a new name over the door – Better Denture. However, as both Andrew and Chris emphasise, everything else will remain exactly the same at both clinics.

“The same service, same prices and people still taken care of right through the process, with after care provided as needed,” Chris says. The smooth, trouble-free service provided at the two clinics means patients are assisted in the transition through the initial stages of having their new dentures, are followed up a week after the fitting, and have ongoing care over the next six months. “That follow-through is very important,” Andrew says. In addition to providing dentures and partial plates, Denture South has a full selection of adults’ and children’s



mouthguards priced at $85 for all sizes. These are available in a huge range of colours to match sports team colours and are essential to protect the teeth through the rough and tumble of winter sports. The Denture South location is Barrington Street, Spreydon and Better Denture is in Brynley St, Hornby. Both clinics have off-street parking.

ut it is time to make a change and leave this spacious happy home of many years. You won’t want to miss out on this opportunity in the boutique subdivision of Broken Run. The cul-de-sac location is desirably tranquil, and this immaculately presented home will be a delight to view. Step into the entrance way and then onto the large well-appointed kitchen with quality Smeg appliances and large oven. The dining and family room are very spacious and have vaulted ceilings. The separate formal lounge with a cosy gas fire and family room have bifold doors that open onto the manicured garden, a wonderful prospect for summer entertaining. The master bedroom also opens as well to the garden - perhaps time for a coffee and croissant in the morning before the day begins? The ensuite is unusually large, a rare find in modern homes, and the family bathroom certainly does not lack in size as well. Two further double bedrooms and a large single will safely house the family and guests. The home is double glazed, fully insulated, has two heat pumps, a gas fire and under floor heating in the tiled kitchen and bathrooms. A larger than normal double garage with trailer door to the backyard completes the deal in this very spacious home.

Air Force Band Flies High with the Queen THE ROYAL New Zealand Air Force Band is celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday in style with a special afternoon concert at the New Zealand Air Force Museum at Wigram on Sunday 5th June. Surrounded by the museum's mighty collection of Air Force history, the band will perform music that spans the nine decades of the Queen's life so far. The afternoon performance on June 5th features a segment dedicated to music by British composers, from Walton's stirring Crown Imperial March, to excerpts from popular musical theatre, through to the theme music for the James Bond 007 movies. During the RNZAF Band's last performance at the Air Force Museum in 2015, the band's 65 strong brass and woodwinds under the baton of Flight Lieutenant Brew received a standing ovation from the packed house. “We're looking forward to Walton's Crown Imperial March, and we'll also reference some great British artists including The Beatles, Queen and David Bowie,” Flight Lieutenant Brew said. “Our band is wonderfully versatile. We'll be taking the opportunity to feature some of our virtuoso players in solo pieces at Wigram.”

The Queen's Birthday concert programme will also include Gershwin's An American in Paris, Glinka's Russlan and Ludmila Overture, as well as a full symphonic version of the impressive soundtracks from the Star Wars movies. Flight Lieutenant Brew recently traveled with the NZ Defence Force Contingent to conduct services at Gallipoli. The RNZAF Band performed in February at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo during the NZ Festival in Wellington. Air Force Band in concert at the New Zealand Air Force Museum, Wigram th Sunday 5 June, 2pm, New Zealand Air Force Museum, Wigram. Adult: $25, Senior $22; Child/Student: $5 Tickets: New Zealand Air Force Museum (03) 343 - 9532.
