Drug arrests linked to school, varsity bike thefts „„ ByAndrewKing FOUR PEOPLE arrested on drugs charges could be linked with bike thefts around Burnside High School and Canterbury University. About 25 high-end bikes have been stolen from the school and university over the last two months. Senior Sergeant Stephan McDaniel said a search warrant was executed in Burnside on May 20 and four people were arrested. They have appeared in court facing a number of alleged cannabis and synthetic cannabis charges and were released on bail. “There were other drugs in the house and we have sent them off for analysis,� Senior Sergeant McDaniel said. It is alleged these four are directly linked with the thefts of bikes from the school and possibly the university. No charges have been laid about stolen equipment yet but Senior Sergeant McDaniel said the investigation continues. “We have seized electronic equipment from the house to determine where the bikes are being sold,� he said.

spate of bike thefts. Engineering student Tim Green managed to chase off three youths attempting to cut the lock to his mountain bike. He spotted them from the window where he was studying. Another student Charles More was not so lucky – his bike was stolen from in front of the University of Canterbury Student Association during the day. PROGRESS: Police have arrested four people on drugs charges in Burnside and it is believed they are involved with bicycle thefts in the area.

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.

In Brief SMOKE ALARMS Housing New Zealand homes in Papanui have been fitted with new photoelectric smoke alarms. Since February, 633 homes have had the new alarms installed. When the smoke particles entering the chamber changes, the amount of light that reaches the sensor also changes. The alarm sounds when the smoke density reaches a preset level.

MUSIC JAM: Last week Riccarton High School’s ukulele orchestra performed a lunchtime concert at the Upper Riccarton Library. The performance was held for all ages to celebrate New Zealand Music Month.

Call to include park toilets the Annual Plan 2016/17 and Amended Long Term Plan 201525 earlier this month regarding the toilet. Residents addressed their concerns there are no toilet facilities provided and the closest public toilet is either at Westfield Mall or The Warehouse on Blenheim Rd. In the area of Riccarton west there are three linked reserves including Harrington Park, Paeroa Reserve and Shand Cres Reserve but there are no public toilets. But the city council’s hands

By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THERE ARE no plans to have public toilets installed in Harrington Park in spite of the nearby community urging they are needed. Residents living in the Riccarton west area have been calling for a public toilet to be placed in Harrington Park due to the high usage of the park for community days. About eight submissions representing several groups in the community were made to

are tied by the level of service agreement which does not allow for the development of toilets in neighbourhood parks. The agreement is in the Annual Plan indicating how much the city council will do for neighbourhood parks. City council’s head of parks Andrew Rutledge said there are no plans to install a toilet at this site. But residents are saying there has been a large increase in population for the Riccarton West area.

According to the 2013 census by NZ Statistics, the population in Riccarton West had increased from 2780 to 3210 in the last 10 years. “To have toilets on the location and site would be mind-blowing for everyone to be quite honest,” chairwoman of the Riccarton West Neighbourhood Group Sheree Wharewhiti said. Ms Wharewhiti said having public toilets on site would be a huge relief as port-a-loo toilets are expensive to hire for their community days.

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. CANDIDATES The People’s Choice has announced their candidates for the city council election in October. They are Anne Galloway, co-ordinator of Home Interaction Programme for Parents and Youngsters, who will contest the Halswell ward; Debbie Mora (Halswell); Jimmy Chen (Hornby); Mike Mora and Natalie Bryden (Hornby). Ms Galloway said in her position as co-ordinatior of HIPPY she has built and empowered a community of parents throughout Halswell, Addington, Spreydon and Hoon Hay.

Rugby league more than just a game


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. A fantastic outcome and even though Tinker looks a little facially different now, his owners report they have their “old” friend back. Dr Michele McMaster

New Zealand Rugby League general manager for the southern zone Steve Martin talks about the popularity of league. 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’.

Roads closed for airport expansion By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PARTS OF Avonhead Rd beside Christchurch International Airport will close tomorrow. Avonhead Rd west and Grays Rd near Ron Guthrey Rd are affected. The road closure is to allow freight aircraft to directly access the airport’s runways. The road closures are so the airport’s air freight development and logistics precinct Dakota Park can extend. The “proposed road alignment” were indicated in a city council plan put in place in 2005. In August the Western News reported some plane spotters were concerned they would no longer have access to view planes from Grays Rd. A Christchurch International Airport spokeswoman said members of the public will be able to observe planes from an area next to the corner of Avonhead and Grays Rd. She said the airport is also considering possible areas for the public to observe planes from in the future. Tony McFarlin, a keen plane spotter, said while it is not an entire loss to have Grays Rd closed off, he would like to see

CLOSING: Parts of Avonhead Rd and Grays Rd will be closed tomorrow. ​ more designated areas set up for plane viewing. “From a security point of view, this is what airports around the world are doing,” he said. He said at Manchester Airport there is a designated area with a concorde plane on display and raised decks. “You get unobstructed photos and the airport runs parallel... even Auckland has got one,” he said. Mr McFarlin said there would have to be thousands of people interested in plane spotting in the city. Russley, Avonhead and Memorial Residents’ Association chairman Geoff Judge said he

had not heard any concerns about the road closure but imagined people enjoyed going there to watch planes. “I think the biggest annoyance for people who love to watch planes is at the old airport you could actually go out onto a deck and watch the airplanes,” he said. Up until April 2013, when the redeveloped integrated terminal building opened, the airport had an external viewing deck up on the first floor of the old terminal building. Following the September 9/11 attacks, most airports around the world had external viewing decks closed off.

In Brief CURLETTS RD TO CLOSE Curletts Rd will be closed tonight and tomorrow night as concrete side panels are lifted onto the overhead bridge spans for the Magdala Place, Wigram Rd overpass. Cranes will be used for lifting the panels into place, and the road closure will ensure drivers are well clear of the site in case of accidental falls onto Curletts Rd. The job is expected to take a night with the second night a contingency night in case of bad weather. The road closure will be between 8.30pm and 6am each night. CYCLE CRASH A man in his 20s was injured in a crash between a car and cyclist at the intersection of Memorial Ave and Grahams Rd last Friday. St John was alerted to the crash at 5.16pm, and took the man, who had moderate injuries, to Christchurch Hospital. INFO SOUGHT ON LIGHTS The Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board have asked city council traffic staff to provide them with a report about installing in right turn arrows at the Glandovey, Strowan Rds and Rossall, Heaton Sts intersection.

recognised but not finished FAMILY TIME: Ruth Gardner and husband, the town crier, Stephen Symons, with their two adult daughters. Her daughters now both live in London, and work as a lawyer and an IT manager.

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. wordpress.com 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.

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

​ harity that helps C most vulnerable falls on tough times 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.

Permit parking trial ByAndrewKing CONTRACTOR parking permits will be trialled in Merivale. The city council decided on Thursday it would run a one-year trial on a section of Holmwood Rd of resident-based parking permits for contractors where there is no off-street parking. The permits were the idea of Merivale resident Dr Stuart Gowland. He lobbied the Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board, and said some contractors have vehicles too big to fit on some properties and need to park on the road. City councillor Jamie Gough said the trial was a fantastic result. “The reason we have asked for this is because the current system was completely inadequate,” he said. “The current system does not allow for weather dependant work or projects that run for longer than the predicted time frame.” The way contractor permits will work is still being finalised by city council staff. However, Cr Gough said it will be a very straightforward process. The contractor would verify themselves with the city council and be issued a permit for its vehicles. The permit would display the registration number of the vehicle to indicate to authorities that the vehicle is exempt from time restricted parking.

Dr Gowland is thrilled the trial is going ahead. “It would have been crazy to try roll it out across the city,” he said. “This way we can test the waters and see if it is good enough to make it policy.” He said there is a similar system operated by the Devon County Council in the United Kingdom, where he got

Amazing savings on top quality

knitwear, jeans and clothing Now that Cantabrians have had their first taste of winter, we’re turning our thoughts to keeping warm, and no-one combines style, personality and quality in knitwear than high-end label Silverdale. along with sister-company PJ Jeans for women, their outlet store hornby offers up to 70% discount off RRP on these NZdesigned brands - amazing value. originally established during the Depression of the 1930s, Silverdale Knitwear is a proudly Kiwi-owned and operated family business which took root in Levin after world war II, where it remains to this day. The focus is still on providing quality pieces which are second-to-none for craftsmanship and value. Their ranges include collections for men and women and reflect the history of the company with an eye to the future. The women’s wear collection – Nineteen//46 – is named after the year the company established itself in Levin and recognises a time when people were given back their optimism and individuality. Their garments are an interpretation of that spirit. They allow for freedom and luxury

and allow the wearer to show off their unique style. 100% merino for quality and 100% washable for convenience, the collection includes cardigans, dresses, sweaters and capes in a range of silhouettes and colours that are flattering and easy to wear yet highly stylish. The Silverdale Men’s and Black collections include cardigans, vests and sweaters in merino, lambswool, and pure wool and are hard-wearing with the emphasis on practicality and comfort. Designs are available in various colours such as plum, cocoa, denim, navy, black and charcoal – perfect for outdoors or for relaxing in front of the logburner at the end of the day. all are such superb quality that they will last for years to come. PJ Jeans has its roots in the South Island but is now based in Levin where the lead development, design, and supply is carried out. The PJ Jeans brand is evolving seasonally as fashion and trends change. however, the product remains true to the revolutionary PJ Jeans comfort, flattering fit and superbly sourced fabrics. The pants come in a range of colours, fabrics and styles, designed with a “real” woman’s

body in mind. all PJ Jeans are designed and cut to complement our varied women’s shapes and sizes. The merger with Silverdale back in 2013 made sense – both companies put quality and style for their consumers as their top priority, and this synergy has led to an effective and

innovative combination. while their garments are available nationally, the amazing savings can only be found at their outlet stores. open Monday to Saturday, find them at The Branston Shopping Centre, 383 Main South Road, hornby.

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.


Ratepayers fund camera By Andrew King FUNDING TO keep a security camera in St Albans will be provided by a local community board. The Manchester St camera, brainchild of city councillor Ali Jones (right), was installed on April 4 to deter clients visiting sex workers in the residential area. Now the three-week free trial is over, the Shirley-Papanui Community Board has agreed to fund the camera for another month. It will cost $960 plus GST and will be funded from the board’s discretionary fund. Cr Jones said poor weather contributed to the reduction of sex worker activity. “We, as a board, want to see what the next four weeks hold,” she said. “After the next four weeks, I hope to have completed my inquiries regarding other possible funding streams.” ATF loaned the camera for three weeks and set it up on the corner of the Manchester and Purchas Sts intersection.

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.

Broken-hearted to leave 21 Highpeak Place, Halswell Auction: June 9, 2016 (unless sold prior)

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 2 living rooms |1 dining room | 2-car garage | 3 off-street parks | Listing #: BE192595


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. Don’t delay; this lovely home must be sold on or before auction day to let my vendors move on to the next stage of their life.

Open Home dates: Saturdays and Sundays 2.30pm to 3pm until auction, or to arrange a private viewing of this property call Debbie Pettigrew now on 337 1316 or 027 777 0411 or Malcolm Parker on 027 220 7843 from Harcourts Grenadier Beckenham (Licensed Agent REAA 2008).

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.
