Sumner’s marathon woman

It was a hard 21.1km for Sumner Running Club member Lisa Brignull, but that didn’t stop her from winning the female category of the Hanmer Four Square half marathon on Saturday. Brignull, who lives in Mt Pleasant, completed the race in 1hr 32min, taking home the winning title for the first time. It’s not the first time she has competed in the race, usually managing a second or third placing. However, Brignull put more into her training regime to get the win. She has now set her sights on the Christchurch Marathon next month. •More sports, page 19 PHOTO: KARL VAN BEEK

Disaster response group being set up in Redcliffs „„ By Caitlin Miles A DISASTER response group is being set up in Redcliffs to offer help and support during natural disasters. The Redcliffs Residents’ Association is in the process of establishing the Redcliffs Response and Resilience Team to get the community involved in the local emergency planning and preparedness in the case of a natural disaster. The group has been established as a result of the poorly planned tsunami response following the November 14 Kaikoura earthquake. It is currently in the very early stages of planning. There was a lot of confusion following the November 14 earthquake which struck just after midnight, and the Canterbury coast was put on a tsunami warning. Redcliffs residents were

unsure if they needed to wait for the tsunami sirens, self-evacuate immediately or move to higher ground. The mixed messages from the city council and Civil Defence left residents confused and roads congested – with many not knowing where to go. Redcliffs Pharmacy owner Daryl Sayer, who is also the Sumner chief fire officer, said it was a “great idea” for the area – especially after the tsunami warning. •Turn to page 4

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK TODAY WE reveal on page 1 a major step forward in dealing with a natural disaster. An emergency response group is being set up in Redcliffs to offer help and support during an earthquake or tsunami. This comes out of the debacle when the Kaikoura quake hit, and the very real threat of a tsunami striking along the east coast. So it’s great to see the powers that be are planning ahead for the worst. And with large offshore fault lines in Pegasus Bay and further north that could generate a 7-plus magnitude quake, the chance of a tsunami striking our coastline is very real. Be prepared. On a more cheery note, congratulations to Sumner runner Lisa Brignull who won the Hanmer half marathon at the weekend (see page 1). – Barry Clarke

News Development for Naval Point LESS THAN adequate facilities at Naval Point has spurred the city council into developing the area – and it’s looking for public input. The Naval Point Development Plan includes making improvements and upgrades at Magazine Bay, Lyttelton Recreation Reserve and the public boat ramp. The upgrades have been a long time coming, with increasing demand on the current facilities as the size of organisations using them continue to grow. Naval Point and Magazine Bay is home to Naval Point Club Lyttelton and Coastguard Canterbury. The city council is already working with these and other community groups and organisations in the development of the plan. The facilities are also used by many others for recreational water sports including power boats, trailer sailors, dinghies, windsurfers, wakas, stand-up paddle boarders and swimmers. As a result, the city council has opened up consultation so the public can have a say on the development plan for the area. The city council wants a better understanding of how the area is currently being used and what the public would like to see in

In Brief GRANT EXTENSION THe city council has approved the extension of a heritage grant for a year on the former Lyttelton Harbour Board building. The $333,548 grant was originally approved for 18 months and should have been finished in April, however, the extent of the damage and design plan needed more work than originally planned and the build started to run behind schedule. The city council had to approve the extension or the grant would be taken away. HEALTH HUB TRUSTEES THe trustees have been appointed to the Akaroa Health Hub They are Rik Tainui, G ​ ordon Boxall, Gretchen Foster, Mike Norris, Stewart Sinclair, Peter Young and Pam Richardson. As work towards the rebuild of the hospital gets closer, an independently chaired appointments panel selected seven trustees to take over the fundraising and future planning and development of the hospital. have been appointed. These trustees will have these positions for two years before either being reappointed or standing down to make way for new trustees.

News Disaster response group planned

•From page 1 “There was very little in the way of planning and organisation, if it had been better planned we could have had more people in houses than halfway up hills in their cars,” Mr Sayer said. The group has identified an urgent need for tsunami evacuation planning with a focus on community education. Redcliffs Residents Association secretary Pat McIntosh said creating the group and a plan was important for the area. “Of course the recent tsunami and evacuation is fresh in everyone’s minds and this area is vulnerable so there is a pressing need to improve the plans for such an event and ensure that the whole community understands what to do in the event of another warning and need to evacuate the coastal area,” Dr McIntosh said. The group is working with Civil Defence and Emergency Management to work out evacuation routes for people in Redcliffs to use in the case of an emergency, whether it be a fire, flood, tsunami, earthquake or other disasters. • Anyone who would like to get involved in the emergency response group should email redcliffs. ra@gmail.com for more information.

Ripapa Island building to be dismantled „„ By Bridget Rutherford RIPAPA ISLAND’S damaged Fort Jervois workshop building will be “sensitively” dismantled next week – but it is not known when the island will reopen to the public. The corrugated iron and timber building was deemed irreparable by engineers and historians. Its walls were blown out during a storm in 2014 following Cyclone Ita. Department of Conservation Christchurch operations manager Andy Thompson said eight people would go over late next week to do the work, which would take about two days. He said they would remove the cladding from the outside of the building and it would be winched over. The rotten timber will be burnt on the island, while recyclable material would be helicoptered away, he said. Ripapa Island is a former pa site and was later used as a quarantine station, prison and coastal defence centre. It has been closed to the public since the September 2010 earthquake. Mr Thompson said originally it was hoped once the workshop was removed, the island could be reopened.

But two months ago it was discovered the island’s wharf was badly earthquake-damaged, he said. It was not yet known whether it could be repaired, but Mr Thompson said it would be costly. He said the other buildings also needed restoration, but it was unknown when that could happen because DoC needed to fund it. “It’s not a $10,000 project, it’s closer to a $1 million project,” he said. “We’re always looking for opportunities and we’re open to ideas and suggestions and open to working with others.”

PROGRESS: The workshop building on Ripapa Island will be dismantled next week after it was deemed irreparable.

Firefighters do odd jobs, climb Sky Tower for charity

In Brief CAR PARK PLAN THe former Lyttelton Museum site could be used for temporary car parking. The Banks Peninsula Community Board has requested city council staff provide information on the possibility of using the site on Gladstone Quay for temporary parking until another use for the site has been decided. The community board has also asked city council staff to look into the possibility of creating angle parking on Exeter St.

Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade’s Jeremy Wheeler, Ian Rees, Andrew Legge, Candice Milner, Andrew Yaxley, Jack Montgomery and Kevin Hurl have been hiring themselves out to help around the place. From chopping wood to serving dinner, brigade members have been doing the dirty work for a good cause. They have been raising money for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand as part of the Sky Tower Challenge. The team leaves for Auckland tomorrow to take part in the gruelling challenge, carrying 25kg of gear up 51 flights of stairs and 1103 individual steps at the Sky Tower on Saturday. The team aimed to raise $6000 for the cause, but have more than doubled their goal, with the total currently sitting at $13,871.97. ​

Another community meeting with police unlikely „„ By Caitlin Miles IT’S UNLIKELY another meeting will be held between Lyttelton police and the community, in spite of what the community board say. After months of concerns from Lyttelton residents over the lack of policing in the community, a meeting was held in March to clarify the crime rate in the community and answer questions from residents. About 25 people attended, including members of the Banks Peninsula Community Board, community patrol team and local MPs. In the community board’s

agenda, it was mentioned the “meeting was not well-attended” and questioned if another meeting could be held between police and the community.

PAGE 5

Community board chairwoman Christine Wilson said if there was a need for another meeting it would be considered. She was “disappointed” more people did not attend the first one. However, Sergeant Dave Knowles said he didn’t think the police would be interested in another meeting so soon. “I don’t see that police would be that interested in doing another meeting . . . it was up to them (the community) if they wanted to attend for whatever reason,” he said. Resident Paul Dietsche, who has been campaigning for more police coverage, said the turn out was low because it was “poorly

advertised” and didn’t give people enough time in advance to diary it and arrange to attend. “If the community board step up and host it and plan it well in advance, I think more people would go. I hope more people would,” he said. Sergeant Knowles said while a meeting wasn’t on the cards, he couldn’t rule out the possibility several months “down the track.” HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the Banks Peninsula Community Board should host a meeting between the community and police?

RESERVE FUNDING The Drayton Reserve Stream Enhancement programme has received funding towards the park’s restoration. The Christchurch West Melton Zone Committee approved $2225 to go to the programme. This particular project aims to improve the ecological functioning of the stream and surrounding landscape. TRUST FORMING THe Birdlings Flat community is setting up a formal trust to run and manage the newly-repaired community centre. Members of the trust will be in charge of managing the building and are interested in hearing from groups across the peninsula interested in being involved.

News In Brief SPEED LIMIT DECISIONS THe speed limit changes planned for Little River will be decided at tomorrow’s city council meeting. The Banks Peninsula Community Board has recommended the city council approve the lowering of speed limits on various roads in Little River. Currently, it is planning to reduce speed from 70km/h to 60km/h on Council Hill, Morrisons, Barclays and Wairewa Pa Rds, where they intersect with State Highway 75, as well as through the township. CONSULTATION TO CLOSE Consultation on improvement to pedestrian safety in Akaroa closes today. The document outlines seven intersections that don’t comply with the New Zealand Transport Agency’s guidelines. The majority of the safety issues relate to the lack of tactile paving, which are textured yellow surfaces that aid pedestrians who are visually-impaired. Some car parking will have to be removed and one intersection will be changed from a give way to a stop sign. After the feedback is reviewed, a decision would be made at a Banks Peninsula Community Board meeting. It is hoped work would begin in either June or July. To make a submission go to the city council website.

Port Hills fire in print „„ By Caitlin Miles A GOVERNORS Bay volunteer firefighter and his partner have spent nearly three months documenting the Port Hills fire in a soon to be released book. Firefighter Rob Brown and his partner Kristie Fogarty have never written a book before but they thought sharing the photos and stories of local firefighters would be a good time to start. Mr Brown said he wanted the book to be a “great coffee table book” to show people what it was like during the fires in February – from the Governors Bay side of things. The couple has spent many late nights and weekends dedicated to putting the book together – with the finishing touches and last minute edits being completed at the moment. Ms Fogarty said the idea of the title, On the Burning Edge was decided early on. “The location of where the fire was, right on the edge of our community just seemed to fit so well,” Ms Fogarty said. It was also on the edge of their

property, Ms Fogarty said they were evacuated as the threat of the fire crept closer to their own home – but they were lucky with no damage. She said putting the book together didn’t bring back a lot of bad memories, since the community were so supportive during that time. “I was still a bit new to the community at the time but everyone came together. The

partners were keeping the fire station topped up and the community was offering so much help and support,” she said. The book consists largely of photos and the stories from the Governors Bay volunteer firefighters sharing their perspective. The proceeds made from the 146-page book will go towards a new shed being built at the Governors Bay fire station, which

is expected to cost around $100,000. Money will also go to local charities. Mr Brown said the selling 1000 copies of the book is a dream, but he would be happy with 500. The couple aims to have the book finished by the end of the month, it will be sold at the Governors Bay Hotel, She Universe and from members of the brigade themselves for $30.

PLAN: Traffic signals for pedestrians on Norwich Quay will provide a safer route to the bus stop.

Safe route across road „„ By Caitlin Miles A NEW “smart” crossing designed for pedestrians goes live in Lyttelton this week – to keep those crossing busy Norwich Quay safe. The New Zealand Transport Agency released the plans to install a signalised crossing on Norwich Quay last year, to help make it easier for pedestrians crossing the busy road to get to the bus stop. More than 8550 vehicles use Norwich Quay a day,

1369 of them heavy vehicles and trucks moving in and out of the port, which can make it difficult for pedestrians to safely cross the road. But NZTA spokesman Colin Knaggs said the crossing will help make that easier. The finishing touches were put on last week and the lights will be tested this week, before they are made operational. “This project will make it easier and safer for people to walk around their com-

munity. It will be safer for children to walk to school, and older people will have the time they need to cross,” he says. The crossing is one of only a handful across the country designed to detect walking speed and traffic won’t be disrupted if no one is using the crossing. The crossing was supposed to be operational by the end of last month, but due to bad weather the completion date had to be pushed back.​

Plans to upgrade reserve

FINALISTS: Suzanna Davis, Ruby Blake-Manson and Hermione Murden (right) will compete in a problem solving contest in the United States.

Peninsula girls to foot it with top problem solvers in US THREE GIRLS from Banks Peninsula are going to the United States to represent their schools in an international problem solving competition. Suzanna Davis, from Port Levy, and Ruby Blake-Manson, from Charteris Bay, both 16, are part of a team set to represent Rangi Ruru Girls’ School at the Future Problem Solving international finals in June. Hermione Murden, 12, also plans to attend the finals, representing Selwyn House. She will compete in the junior division of the competition. The competition will take place at Wisconsin University from June 3 to 14 and involves more than 2200 young people

from around the world. The topic for this year’s competition is biosecurity. It involves the participants combining their knowledge in science, social and ethical issues. The girls have all been fundraising. Suzanna and Ruby both need to raise $3603 each to cover flights, competition costs, insurance and accommodation. Hermoine needs to raise $4700. She has hosted several fundraisers and applied for funding from other organisations to help cover the costs. The girls have all requested $300 from the Banks Peninsula Community Board to go towards the costs.

A TREE hut, bike track and skate park could be key features in the redevelopment of a Governors Bay reserve. In November last year, the city council asked the community to provide ideas on three different sections of the Governors Bay Community Centre and Pool Reserve. It received feedback from 59 people, including school children, residents and community groups. From the feedback, the city council has created a landscape plan to take to the community before it goes before the Banks Peninsula Community Board. It involves improving the current bike pump track, building a half pipe and a tree hut to create the feeling of being in the tree canopy. More play equipment, including swings and balancing logs, will be included, along with a picnic area near the half pipe. The plans propose removing seven trees in the reserve, five due to their declining health and two to make room for the bike track. The plans also include putting screens up near the existing swimming pool for better privacy, more planting will also be added to existing flower beds. Consultation on the plans

NEW IDEAS: A tree hut among the forest canopy, a half pipe and bike track are all possibilities for the reserve.

Your Local Views Cruise ship berth positive for Lyttelton Labour MP Ruth Dyson writes about developments in Lyttelton and impact a lack of funding has on services volunteer organisations can offer Lyttelton has been in the news lately – and mostly for very positive reasons.   THe city council’s decision to fund the $56 million cruise ship berth is great news not just for Lyttelton but actually for the whole of the South Island.  While some small cruise ships have been going to Akaroa in the last few years, actually both Lyttelton and Port Chalmers have been missing out on visits, with many cruise ships not heading to the South Island at all.  The build challenge is huge and is expected to take two and a half years – which doesn’t seem long given the size of the job. In the same week, the work on the first of three stages to build the Te Ana Marina began.  Over the next few weeks, the piles, which are being poured in Lyttelton, will be trucked through to

the west to be installed. This part of the work is expected to be completed by November.  It will be so good to see this inner harbour area developed and made attractive, including the upgrade of the Woolstore building and the provision of public amenities.  But the bad news is that Community House, which provides amazing support for local people and includes the Youth Centre, has had its funding cut and, as a result, has had to reduce services, staff and hours. The new model that seems to be driving Government funding and also funding from organisations such as the Rata Foundation, is that the group getting the funding has to move to be “sustainable”.  Might sound good in theory – a bit like “social investment” but what it doesn’t recognise is that some support services are provided for free to those who need them by volunteers who clearly don’t get paid!  This is what a lot of our community and voluntary sector work is about and expecting them to become “sustainable” in terms of funding is an out of touch attitude.

Adrian Daly responds to an article in last week’s Bay Harbour News about the closure of the tearooms in Orton Bradley Park I am disappointed to hear that a decision by the Orton Bradley Board will close the Victorianstyle cafe after such a short trial. I think the Victorian-style presented by Annie is a great idea, befitting the heritage nature of the park. A cafe in Orton Bradley/Charteris Bay should be a draw for people into the park, and a plus for camping users. My question would be, how limited was the marketing of the cafe and park, to provide a business starter booster. My guess would be that few members of the large Christch-

urch population on the doorstep probably had no knowledge of the cafe’s existence. I think if they did they would be delighted by what Annie has to offer. It’s a lovely building with individually-styled rooms, outside seating, and amazing cakes and deserts,

to say the least. I guess the idea of a Victorian cafe may have less appeal to younger visitors, so perhaps it needs complementing with another attraction such as developing/extending the mountain bike trails.

Visitors hosted by Rotarians Ferrymead Rotary member Barbara Crooks writes about international visitors coming to the area and bilingual education A dozen North American Rotarians were enthralled by the traditional Maori welcome and entertainment they received at Woolston’s Te Waka Unua School. Visitors Chris and Joe Townley said the group was highly impressed by the enthusiasm, passion and repertoire of the young

boys and girls from the school’s bilingual education unit. After a powhiri, and a hongi, the children performed a haka, songs and dances. Chris Townley says they were brilliantly entertained and the visitors were intrigued by the children’s ability to perform in front of an audience. The group, from Washington State, United States, and Vancouver Island, Canada, was part of Rotary’s International Friendship Exchange programme, which brings people together for

A BRANCH OF

social and cultural interaction. Groups of around 12 Rotarians exchange on a district-todistrict basis and are hosted by Rotarians. This group was hosted in Ashburton, Hokitika, Nelson, Blenheim and Christchurch. A programme was organised to show aspects of life in New Zealand – farming, tourism and wine-making. If you want to come along to Ferrymead Rotary you would be very welcome. Phone Kai Tovgaard on 384 9485.

FERRYMEAD SUPER LIQUOR

Ferrymead liquor store now in New ownership and a move across the car park area to another building have seen Ferrymead Super Liquor undergo a complete transformation. After purchasing the business in 2016, Jeremy de Gouw decided to give it a new lease of life so it would be in keeping with the many other exciting developments happening in Ferrymead. “We needed to keep up with the neighbours, so I moved the business to the new premises, which are three times the size of the previous outlet, and designed the store to fit with the future of Ferrymead,” Jeremy says. The completely refurbished premises offer a bright, spacious and modern environment for customers, with a huge range of products on display. These include an extensive selection of wines from right across New Zealand, with a strong emphasis on boutique varieties rather than mainstream brands. Many of them are single

estate wines, and labels include Gibston Valley and quality Penfolds wines. Sam Neill’s Two Paddocks wines have been introduced to the store, along with Graeme Norton’s Sauvignon Blanc, which is produced in Marlborough. Many international wines are also stocked. There is also an excellent range of Scotch whisky, which Jeremy describes as one of the best in the area, as well as brandy, Jack Daniels and other popular spirits. Ferrymead Super Liquor also offers an extensive range of beers to suit all tastes. These include craft beers, such as the local Monsoon brand, Epic, Pan Head, Shakespeare, Moa and Monteith’s. Many of them are available in single

500ml bottles, not necessarily packs, giving customers the opportunity to give new ones a try. And customers are invited to chat to the staff about the products and get some advice. “Our friendly staff at Ferrymead Super Liquor don’t just sell liquor – they help customers make informed choices,” Jeremy says. “Customers can also email us their order and we will have it ready for them when they come in. Our specials can be found on our Super Liquor website or follow us on Facebook, where we post our group specials and the odd Ferrymead treat.” Wine tastings on Friday and Saturday afternoons, of new and unique products are an opportunity for customers to taste different labels and varieties, Jeremy says. Jeremy has also introduced a corporate supply service in the area, which he says is very convenient for companies

Johnnie Walker Red Label was launched in its current form by brothers George and Alexander Walker in 1909, though it had existed as Walker’s Special Old Highland Red Label for some years previously. Alexander blended a type of whisky which is more suited to mixing with soda than the heavier, more old-fashioned whiskies, and named it after his grandfather, who had started the family business in 1820. Today it is the world’s most popular whisky and is sold in more than 200 markets world-wide.

Bombay Sapphire is one of the most recognised and popular gins in the world. 10 botanicals are infused in a truly unique process - held seperately from the spirit in perforated copper baskets, vapour from the botanicals rise as they’re heated and the distinctive flavours are released. The result is a complex aromatic liquid that delivers a broader, more balanced flavour.

News Riverbanks earmarked for clean-up

MIX: Benjamin Derwahl stirred the vegetables to make chips.

Garden delights DIAMOND HARBOUR School pupils have been reaping the rewards of their garden by making some vegetable chips from the produce. As part of the Garden to Table programme, the pupils collected beetroot, artichokes and potatoes to make the chips. They also collected grapes and bananas to make ice-cream before sitting down to enjoy their reward.

DECORATE: Finn Simpson, Maci Hemapo and Zoe Ross

„„ By Noah Graham GROUPS ARE getting ready to clean up riverbanks. This Saturday, hundreds of volunteers will don their gumboots to pick up rubbish littering Christchurch riverbanks for the annual Mother of All Clean Ups. Volunteers will line the AvonHeathcote Estuary as well as the Heathcote and Avon rivers to try and clean out waste that is further polluting the rivers. Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust co-ordinator Tanya Jenkins said the cleanup, held on the eve of Mother’s Helene Day every year, Mautner was an opportunity to give a gift back to Mother Nature. “We were thrilled to see such an enormous turnout of caring people last year. “Close to 1300 members of the public tidied 156km of river bank and estuary edge,” she said. More than 20 tonnes of rubbish was collected last year which ranged from plastic bags to computers and even a sheep carcass.

RUBBISH: During last year’s Mother of All Clean Ups more than 1300 volunteers removed more than 20 tonnes of rubbish from the Opawaho/Heathcote River. ​

“We are hoping that we collect less this year as the aim of the event is to raise awareness of the issue and for individuals to take responsibility for their careful disposal of rubbish,” Mrs Jenkins said. Opawaho-Heathcote River Network co-chairwoman Helene Mautner said volunteers would not need to get into the water, they would just be cleaning the banks.

“We have a saying: If your feet get wet you’ve gone too far.” Dr Mautner said it was a great couple of hours to be involved in. The two-hour clean-up starts at 10am, with volunteers urged to register through ohr.co.nz. However, people are welcome to turn up on the day. Last year, more than 50 community groups joined the clean-up.

Controversial decisions play role in Sumner loss „„ By Gordon Findlater A DISALLOWED try and a sinbinning in the final 15 minutes proved costly in Sumner’s 14-25 loss to Burnside on Saturday. With the game in the balance, Sumner thought they had taken the lead late in the match at Burnside Park when winger Wesley Mauafu dived over in the corner. However, the tide turned on Martin Dodgson’s side. The try was disallowed after a touch judge spotted a punch at a scrum leading up to the try. “The confusing thing was that they sighted the punch but they couldn’t tell which player threw the punch. Ironically, the only thing we could see on video after the match was a Burnside player punching our guy,” said Dodgson. It only got worse for Sumner with first-five Nik Cumming sin-binned before full-time for a no-arm tackle. They didn’t have better luck before kick-off with captain Joel Rabbidge and Callum Wisbey both ruled out after pulling up lame in their warmups. The last minute injuries resulted in the club’s division two head coach Peri Marks

SPORTS

WINNERS: Jade Majendie, Amelie Clark and Abi Scott-Douglas combined to win the grade eight race at Bottle Lake Forest.

HUSSLE: Sumner hooker Tu’uta Simaile shows his power during his team’s 14-25 loss to Burnside.

receiving a last minute call up and rushing across town to make the game. Dodgson is hopeful the two injured players will be fit for Saturday’s encounter with High School Old Boys. Sumner will also have the services of No 8 Dylan Nel after his return from South Africa with the Crusaders.

“That’s going to be a massive boost. He competes every single day and it was great to see him get called over to South Africa,” said Dodgson. With High School Old Boys dwindling at the bottom of the Hawkins Cup standings, maximum points will be Sumner’s objective at Bob Deans Field this weekend.

Does the 31 October wood burner deadline affect you? The deadline to get a building consent to replace wood burners older than 15 years with a low emission wood burner is 31 October 2017. After that, your only option might be the ultra-low emission model.

Young Sumner athletes shine in forest relay run YOUNG SUMNER runners had a successful outing at the weekend’s children’s forest relays. It was a successful debut in the event for the Sumner Chipettes grade eight girls team, of Amelie Clark, Abi Scott-Douglas and Jade Majendie. Each running a 1.9km lap, the team took out their grade with a winning margin of 2min 30sec. They also finished first, second and fourth individually with less

than 30 seconds separating them. Sumner’s grade 12 boys and girls also did well, finishing second and third respectively, while the mixed 18 team, comprising of Oliver Egan, 18, Sam Clark, 13, and Lili Ovendale, 15, finished second overall. The next race on the calendar is the Jane Patterson on May 20, which is the first individual race of the season.

Do you have any burning questions about this? Which wood burner is cheaper? The low emission model Which one costs less to run? The ultra-low emission model What are my choices after 31 October? In many cases only the ultra-low emission model Which one is better for our health and for the environment? The ultra-low emission model Which one is better long term value? The ultra-low emission model Find out if you need to replace your wood burner and be in to WIN at www.warmercheaper.co.nz

Three great danceworks. One great show.

Episode 31 • Tuplet • Cacti Isaac Theatre Royal 9 – 10 June CHOREOGRAPHY BY ALEXANDER EKMAN

BOOK NOW rnzb.org.nz


Prepare yourself for an electrifying night out as the RNZB presents not one, but three razor-sharp works by Alexander Ekman, performed together for the first time. A highlight of the RNZB’s 2016 Speed of Light programme; don’t miss this opportunity to experience Ekman’s exuberant, complex rhythms and witty, stylish staging.

Tuplet Tuplet, for just six dancers, is the most intimate of the three works, riffing off the split-second precision of contemporary ballet dancers at the top of their game. Created for Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, it premiered in New York in 2012.

WARM UP, CURTAIN UP BEFORE THE SHOW (GOLD COIN DONATION)

Katie Hurst-Saxton Born and trained in Christchurch, Katie Hurst-Saxton was offered a contract with RNZB at just 16 years of age, the youngest-ever full time member to join the company. Here she talks about preparing to dance Three by Ekman at the Isaac Theatre Royal.

Watch the RNZB take Class on Stage The RNZB invites teachers and their students to observe their national ballet company taking class. These close-up encounters act as a fantastic refresher as well as a learning tool for teachers, and provide a source of inspiration and motivation for students. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to watch the full company in action during their daily class, which will take place on stage in the stunning setting of the Isaac Theatre Royal.

Saturday 10 June 2017, 11am2 Duration of class is 1hr 15 mins Cost $10 per ticket Suitable for all dance teachers, dance students aged 9 or older and accompanying adult.

Booking essential at rnzb.org.nz/classsonstage

“From the very first moment I started learning the Ekman repertoire, I fell in love with it! It’s like nothing I’ve ever danced before in my 15 year career. What I love most about the Ekman style is the rhythms we get to make, with both our bodies and our voices. All three works are to such ‘feel good’ music and have a quirky sense of humour, so you can’t help but enjoy yourself while you’re dancing. Performing in my hometown always brings a bag of mixed emotions. On the one hand I get extremely excited to be performing in the stunningly beautiful Isaac Theatre Royal, which feels so normal, so right, and is almost comforting to me. But on the other hand I know the majority of the dance world in Christchurch, which makes me nervous, because I want to perform perfectly for them and make them proud. When you know that certain people are in the audience, it brings a nervous tension to your dancing – which can often make for a better show! I can’t wait to be back in Christchurch with the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s Three By Ekman. Make sure you book your tickets for a night of fist pumping, high energy fun!”

Cacti (2010) brings it all together, combining hilarious insights into the dancers’ innermost thoughts with a mesmerising musicality. Once again, the RNZB will be joined by the New Zealand String Quartet onstage for all performances.

Katie Hurst-Saxton Born and trained in Christchurch, Katie Hurst-Saxton was offered a contract with RNZB at just 16 years of age, the youngest-ever full time member to join the company. Here she talks about preparing to dance Three by Ekman at the Isaac Theatre Royal.

These close-up encounters act as a fantastic refresher as well as a learning tool for teachers, and provide a source of inspiration and motivation for students. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to watch the full company in action during their daily class, which will take place on stage in the stunning setting of the Isaac Theatre Royal.

“From the very first moment I started learning the Ekman repertoire, I fell in love with it! It’s like nothing I’ve ever danced before in my 15 year career. What I love most about the Ekman style is the rhythms we get to make, with both our bodies and our voices. All three works are to such ‘feel good’ music and have a quirky sense of humour, so you can’t help but enjoy yourself while you’re dancing. Performing in my hometown always brings a bag of mixed emotions. On the one hand I get extremely excited to be performing in the stunningly beautiful Isaac Theatre Royal, which feels so normal, so right, and is almost comforting to me. But on the other hand I know the majority of the dance world in Christchurch, which makes me nervous, because I want to perform perfectly for them and make them proud. When you know that certain people are in the audience, it brings a nervous tension to your dancing – which can often make for a better show! I can’t wait to be back in Christchurch with the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s Three By Ekman. Make sure you book your tickets for a night of fist pumping, high energy fun!”

Cacti (2010) brings it all together, combining hilarious insights into the dancers’ innermost thoughts with a mesmerising musicality. Once again, the RNZB will be joined by the New Zealand String Quartet onstage for all performances.
