Council earns praise for coastal hazards process „„ ByFraserWalker-Pearce A LONG time critic of a controversial coastal hazards report says the city council has finally got the process right. South Brighton Residents Association chairman Hugo Kristinsson (below) has been vocal in his opposition to last year’s report, saying the science behind conclusions was not sound. ​But he says the city council is on the right track after it, on Thursday, approved GHD Consultant’s terms of reference for an expert panel to review the report. The city council came under fire for the Tonkin + Taylor Coastal Hazards Assessment Report, released in July, which identified 6000 properties that could be susceptible to erosion. It also reported that nearly 18,000 homes were at risk of coastal inundation over the next 50 to 100 years. Last year the report was independently reviewed by Dr Terry Hume of Hume Consulting Ltd, but the science of the findings was widely questioned by the communities affected.

IN DANGER: The Spit, off Southshore, was discussed in Tonkin + Taylor’s report on coastal hazards as being one of many at-risk areas. ​ The city council decided in December that another review should be carried out with more community input. Mr Kristinsson said he was pleased to see the shortlist of experts approved by the city council, when they accepted GHD Consultants’ proposed terms for the report. The city council also approved the scope of the review, scientific and legal questions to be

answered by the expert panel, and a preliminary timeline for the panel to have completed the review. GHD Consultants national business group manager Maurice Hoban said they appointed a community reference group to “call the shots� when making the proposal. “We’ve been talking to the affected communities for some time, asking them who

News Still friends after 66 years By Fraser Walker-Pearce FRIENDSHIPS formed in high school 66 years ago are still going strong for an Avonside Girls’ High School group. Avonside Old Girls, a group of 10 women who all began at the high school in 1950, at age 14, celebrated their 66th anniversary as friends on Friday. This year, the women met in Huntsbury for a late lunch, a cup of tea, and a chin wag about the “good old times” from 66 years before. The group was originally 13 members, but a few have passed on. The group is now made up of Joy Masters, Eleanor Gillespie, Rosalind Fahey, Moyra Forsyth, Rosemary Harper, Valerie Percy, Alison Royfee, Norma-Anne Prior, Pam Howell, Aileen Rice, and Fay Powell. Some members have known each other since 1941. Mrs Gillespie, Mrs Percy and Mrs Harper all attended Opawa Primary School together. Mrs Gillespie said the group only meet a few times a year, but their friendship has remained strong over time. “We meet every two or three months. It’s been 66 years since that all started, and now we’re all turning 80,” she said. The members will or have

And we all chose commercial work. I worked until I was 65 as a clerk, and some still do some work. We all still have our marbles,” she said. She said from their original Avonside class of about 20, the original group of girls from that class still “catch up and have a

In Brief QE II LAND SALE DECISION The hearings panel in charge of deciding whether a portion of QE II Park should be sold to the Ministry of Education, has decided that it should, with minor adjustments. They recommended the sale proceed, so long as some land is retained to enable the Travis Medical Centre to use it for customer car parking, some of the park’s memorial trees are protected, a publicly-accessible walking track is created, and the proceeds from the land sale go towards the development and implementation of a master plan for the entirety of QE II Park. RED ZONE MEETING A meeting was held to discuss the future of the residential red zone last week. Organised by New Brighton Union Parish co-ordinating minister Mark Gibson, the meeting was held to discuss processes that residents would like to see Regenerate Christchurch take. The community want Regenerate, charged with the development of the residential red zone, to be clear and transparent in their decision-making. Regenerate chairman Andre Lovatt said success for him is having the community involved throughout the process.

Don’t leave the kitchen when cooking


McMaster Heap

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.

Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer IT’S BEEN a while since I’ve talked about cooking fires in kitchens but there were five of these this week including a couple that caused quite considerable damage and inevitably one that resulted in ambulance treatment for the house occupant from smoke inhalation. As always the advice is the same. Don’t leave the kitchen when you’re cooking on the stove top. If you are cooking with fat or oil have the lid of the pan, an oven tray or a breadboard always available to slap on the top if the worst happens and flames appear. A quick fix with no ongoing problems or a kitchen on fire with the weeks of inconvenience that involves. It should be a no-brainer really, shouldn’t it? A number of quite odd fire calls featured this week. A fish smoker was found on fire in Barrington Park. A distraught Mum was attended to in Addington where she had locked herself out of the house with two toddlers inside. A lady rang for help because she had found a mouse in her laundry. A crew were called to accident and emergency the hospital to help a young woman whose finger was somehow struck fast in a doorknob. Finally, we had a call to a car fire at

DAMAGE: Kitchen fires require a lot of cleaning up.

a service station that turned out to be a blown engine and two calls to low hanging smoke that turned out to be mist. I suspect we’ll have some more of these now with winter starting to bite. Stay warm, stay safe!

In harmony for last time

By Fraser Walker-Pearce TWO EASTERN schools celebrated a last musical hurrah before one will close its doors forever. It was a bittersweet ending to May, New Zealand’s Music Month, for Chisnallwood Intermediate School and Avondale Primary School, as it was the last time they would ever sing together. Chisnallwood and Avondale joined forces on Friday to sing, as they have done for the past five years. But this time was different. Avondale is closing at the end of the year to make way for the new super school being built on the site of Aranui High School, Haeata Community Campus. The two schools celebrated their last chance to collaborate, by singing the annual Hook, Line and Singalong competition’s winning song, We are Aotearoa. The competition was set up by the New Zealand Music Commission for schools to submit original songs for judging. The winning tune was recorded by its Auckland-based creators in a professional studio. Chisnallwood’s head of music Judith Bell said the two eastern

IN TIME: Avondale Primary School and Chisnallwood Intermediate School combined for the last time to celebrate NZ Music Month.

schools have sang each year’s competition-winning song for the past five years. “We have had a tradition for the last few years of combining Chisnallwood with Avondale to celebrate New Zealand Music Month by singing the winning song together. Almost 1000 voices singing along with ukuleles,” she said. Mrs Bell said Chisnallwood

had decided this year they would turn the singing into a school house competition, with each house’s rendition being judged. “When we hosted the New Zealand Ukulele Trust’s development squad, one of the girls in that squad learned that week that she’d won. So she performed We are Aotearoa to the school. Then we took the group

to Avondale and they sang it there too,” she said. She said this year was particularly special to the two schools, as it would be the last time they could perform together. “This year’s event is especially significant because it is the last year we can do this with Avondale Primary as they close at the end of the year,” she said.


In Brief DRIVER HURT IN CRASH A teenage driver was taken to hospital with moderate injuries after a car crash in Avonside last week. The crash happened on Avonside Dr on Wednesday. St John was alerted at 11.20am. MODEL CLUB OPENED A club in New Brighton recently celebrated its first public event, and plan to expand further into Rawhiti Domain. The New Brighton Radio Controlled Car Club was set up by Phillip Cossar earlier in the year, but was only opened to the public earlier this month. The first event took place on Sunday. The club was set up with funding and help from the Rawhiti Community Sports Inc and the city council who have given the group some land at Rawhiti Domain. Mr Cossar said he hopes the radio controlled car club could be the first step in creating a hobby park that could include a lake for radio controlled boats, and somewhere to fly radio controlled planes. NEW PLANS Residents can now finally have a look at the first design of the Eastern Recreation and Sports Centre. Concept designs were released on Friday by the city council, and are available at for viewing.

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. 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. 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.

Choir’s heartfelt tribute Tradesmen off

ByTomDoudney 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 HARMONY: Choir member Dorien Pel, standing with red scarf, fifth from earthquake, she left, with the choir in 2007. moved back to her Pel at a social gathering and sang Radio National station to help country of birth, the Nethertogether again. them go over it and get the lands, for what was supposed to “Dorien was wonderful at pronunciation right, as the words be six months. always bringing poetry to our are in the Tetum language.

to national skills competition ByMattSalmons TWO TRADIES will put their skills to the test when they represent Canterbury in the national WorldSkills competition later this year. Marshland welder Liam Robertson, of the Lyttelton Engineering company, and Spreydon plumber Jesse Pitts, of On Tap Plumbing, won their places after completing two challenges tailored to their trades. The pair, both 19, will travel to Hamilton for the national competition from September 29 to October 2. Both are alumni of the Ara Institute of Canterbury. Here they will be competing for a place in New Zealand’s WorldSkills team, the Tool Blacks. The national team is set to compete in the international WorldSkills competition in Abu Dhabi in 2017. Mr Robertson was tested on his welding abilities and Mr Pitt on making piping using different materials. They were judged on speed, planning accuracy, 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 competition 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, where bricklaying drew the biggest crowds.

​Charity that helps most vulnerable falls on tough times ByTomDoudney 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. “We always struggle to get resources. I don’t think people even realise what we do half the time but we do some amazing things.” One of its recent projects has included working with Can-

terbury 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.

Rugby league more than just a game

New Zealand Rugby League general manager for the southern zone Steve Martin talks about the popularity of league in the eastern suburbs. The extremely successful visit to Christchurch by the Penrith Panthers NRL side and the New Zealand Warriors, shows what an appetite Cantabrians have for rugby league. To sell out AMI Stadium, the former home of rugby league in Canterbury and the scene of many past historic encounters, was a superb feat. The community was well served by the high level of engagement undertaken by the two teams in the time that they were in the city. A huge number of young people were able to interact with the stars of the game. The programme, delivered to schools across the city,

was very well received and continued the theme of rugby league being ‘more than just a game’. Sport can be a catalyst for many positive outcomes for communities and individuals alike. Rugby league has shown that it is a game that cares about its people and their health and well being. The environment for delivery of opportunities to play the game has improved immensely with a variety of measures that have been undertaken. Rugby league has fought to shrug off the negative tag which it has often been given. And with events such as the Panthers and Warriors game, the prospect of a new home for rugby league was created. With the potential for a team from Canterbury being involved in an NRL

competition, and the chance for there to be a Rugby League World Cup fixture in Christchurch next year, the future has never looked brighter. The challenge facing the sport is the same as that of all sports, finding volunteers prepared to take on the many key roles that are needed to run the game at club level and to coach and manage teams. With participation numbers continuing to rise and interest high, Canterbury Rugby League is positioning itself to provide the best possible support to those wanting to be involved in the game. Rugby league is truly ‘more than just a game’.

S Coleshill – What is it with some residents of New Brighton and Southshore in regards to the godwit plan? Five years have passed, surely our priority is the rebuild of our shopping area. Has everyone turned a blind eye to what is becoming a ghost town? A mini revolution is needed, but instead of heads rolling, councillors and mayoral seats. We need fresh blood who has the verve and the tenacity to bring this area back to life. Who knows, 2022 could well be when this phoenix rises. But I doubt it. Readers respond to an article on smaller buses being installed to the 135 route from July onwards. Brian Sandle – Years ago I was told that peak hours required large buses and it would be a waste of investment to have them sitting idle while smaller buses were used for lower volume times. We should promote bus use and the coastal areas should be setting an example as they are under a global warming threat more. The city council is in charge of stopping positions and I have asked them to do a crime prevention through environmental design study on where the stops are placed. Mayor Lianne Dalziel wants to take

over the routes, too. Who would use buses more if stops were placed in the busy, lit area between Countdown and the New Brighton Club? Norah Southorn – It was very pleasing to read of the introduction of the Red Bus service being introduced on four routes in the eastern suburbs. However, it would be even more pleasing, if this service could be expanded to the Dallington and North Linwood areas as well. The people of North Linwood and Avonside areas have no bus service other than the Orbiter, and Dallington has a rather limited service, the number 44. I travel the full length of this service regularly and find it a rather epic journey on an extremely long and tortuous route, the buses old and rattling. If the route could be altered to continue over the Dallington bridge down into North Linwood and Avonside, and the Shirley loop cut out or incorporated into another service, it would attract more users. If this was done using the small new buses, I think the patronage would greatly increase. As it is, travelling on the number 44 bus is quite an unpleasant experience and I can understand people not wanting to use it.

Big sports gear give to school By Fraser Walker-Pearce A four week campaign asking people to donate their old sports equipment has ended with bins full of gear being given to Shirley Intermediate School. The Westpac branch at The Palms Shopping Centre last month set up a container in store, asking customers to bring in their used sporting gear for a good cause. It was a drive from the iSport Foundation, led by former All Blacks Ali Williams, Richie McCaw and Dan Carter, aiming to get more sports gear into Canterbury schools. Westpac, The Palms, branch manager Mark Jenkins said the bank got on board with the iSport Foundation’s drive. “Westpac, about a month ago, decided to ask customers for any old sports gear they weren’t using anymore and bring it into the branch. We had a great big poster of Richie McCaw asking them to bring stuff in. I think that got most people’s attention,” he said. Mr Jenkins said the first week of collection was quiet, but soon a bin had “overflowed”, so others were brought in. After about a month, the “six or seven bin” haul was gifted to Shirley Intermediate, just across the road from The Palms, and was gratefully accepted.



NEW GEAR: Shirley Intermediate’s Ben Cox and Lucy Cook-Darke from room 2 show off some of the new equipment with Westpac, The Palms, branch manager Mark Jenkins. ​

Shirley Intermediate principal Geoff Siave said the generosity of the bank was “just fantastic”. “There was cricket gear, football gear, hockey gear, football and rugby boots, tennis racquets, hockey sticks, swimming gear, bike helmets, a scooter or two, and balls of all shapes and sizes. It’s just fantastic for us,” he said. Mr Siave said sports teacher

Kyle Anglesey already had plans for the new equipment. “The sports teacher said he will use some of it for his classes. But he also said he will be giving some equipment to specific kids who need it. So he’s told kids to come in and see him for equipment, for things like boots for their sports if they don’t have any,” he said.

CROSS COUNTRY: Blue, gold, red, and green could all be seen dashing through Shirley Boys’ High School last week during their annual cross country event. On Monday afternoon, runners dressed in their house colours, ran along the back of the Shirley Village to the Averill St gate, before taking the western North Parade footpath to the library gate. They went along the football and rugby field boundary to the finish.

Club day celebration ByGordonFindlater SHIRLEY BOYS’ High celebrated their annual club day in style. On Saturday, all of the Shirley’s school teams took to the field at their home ground. The first IV took the limelight staying unbeaten in the UC Championship, defeating Burnside 19-5. The home side had the best of the early going. Shirley first-five Jackson Taylor continued his fine form with the boot knocking over two penalties to stay amongst the top points scorers in the competition. Nathan Koolen grabbed the first try twenty-six minutes into the game, finishing a well-

worked move in the corner before Jackson calmly converted the toughest of his four successful kicks, taking his points tally past 40 for the season. Ill-discipline snuck its way into the second half of the game with both team dropping down to 14 men towards the end of the game. Burnside centre Mike Ravalawa had been sinbinned for repeated dangerous play, he would return with less than a minute of the game to play. However, he crossed the line to get a late consolation try for his side. The next test for Shirley has them travel south to tackle Timaru Boys’ High who will be fresh after a bye.

READY TO PLAY: Shirley prepare for battle against Burnside, last year’s finalists remain unbeaten in this year’s UC Championship.

HOMETOWN HEROES: Year 5 and 6 pupils from Queenspark School attended a Crusaders training last week and got to meet some of their heroes. Crusaders first five-eighth Richie Mo’unga (pictured) sat down and had a picture with Noah Barrett and Manaia Wharepapa (right) after their training session at Rugby Park. The Crusaders will take on the Chiefs in July after the international rugby window passes.

Tips for untreated hearing loss

Hearing is a sense that many of us take for granted. Throughout our lives, we subject our ears to loud sounds–music, power tools, lawn mowers, air travel– without using ear protection. regrettably, this can cause hearing loss. also, the natural aging process generally results in hearing loss. even certain illnesses

and medications can adversely affect our hearing. Unfortunately, hearing loss that occurs from such causes is permanent. The good news is, even if you already have a little hearing loss, it’s never too late to preserve your hearing for the years ahead. The first thing you can do is protect your ears in noisy environments.

also, avoid using cotton swabs to clean your ears. and, make it a priority to get a baseline hearing screening to see if hearing loss has already occurred. if hearing loss is found during your hearing evaluation, it could be due to excess ear wax or infection. This type of hearing loss is reversible. if hearing loss stems from chronic exposure to loud noise, aging, or certain illnesses and medications, hearing aids are the best way to preserve your good hearing. The great news about today’s hearing aids is how small and easy to wear they are. Modern digital hearing aids use super-tiny microprocessor technology– making them virtually invisible when worn. Hearing aids can help almost all degrees of hearing loss–from a little to a lot. and, by stimulating your brain with sound that might not otherwise reach it, hearing aids help keep your brain active, which lowers your risk for cognitive diseases, such as dementia. if you suspect you may have hearing loss, don’t ignore it. neglecting a hearing loss can have a snowball effect–making it grow bigger, faster than necessary.


Here are 10 ways you can limit hearing damage and preserve good hearing: 1. Understand the sound levels of the noises in your environment. 2. Learn about proper ear protection. There are many kinds on the market today, ranging from custom ear molds to foam plugs and more. 3. Put physical distance between you and loud noise when it is present. if possible, stand at an angle from the noise, not directly in front of it. 4. Take breaks when you are exposed to noise. 5. When listening to music through headphones or earbuds, keep the volume low-to-medium. 6. Know the signs of hearing loss, and measure yourself against them. 7. schedule a baseline hearing evaluation. Hearing loss is on the rise among Baby Boomers and young people. it’s never too early to get your hearing checked, but don’t wait past age 50. 8. Have your hearing evaluated by a professional licensed by your state. 9. if you have hearing loss caused by a reversible condition, take steps to correct it. 10. if any permanent hearing loss is diagnosed, choose hearing aids to slow it down, and preserve good hearing.

it’s never too early to get your hearing checked, but don’t wait past age 50.

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.
