Lyttelton D-Day veteran awarded with honour Paul Jolliffe was awarded the French Legion of Honour on Sunday for the part he played in the D-Day landing operations in Normandy during World War 2. The Lyttelton resident speaks with reporter Sarla Donovan PAUL JOLLIFFE was 15 years and three months old when he joined the British Navy. Two years later, he was on the bombardment ship HMS Emerald off the shore of Normandy, France, about to play his part in the biggest amphibious invasion in history – the D-Day landings. The guns started firing at 5.30am on June 6, 1944. •Turn to page 4

Inside

PAUL JOLLIFFE was recognised by the French at the weekend for his part in the D-Day landings on June 6, 1944. On page 1 we report on Paul’s memories of that day when he was involved in the bombardment of the German defences at Normandy. With him during the interview was his wife Ann, and there is a nice little back story to how they met – I’ll let you find out in the article. It’s great to see war veterans continuing to get recognition. The French are very good at remembering those who helped drive enemies from their country (Mururoa and Rainbow Warrior aside). Paul says he was just a small cog in a very big (war) machine, which is true. But without the Paul Jolliffe’s of the war, the machine wouldn’t have turned. – Barry Clarke

Skate ramp plan for old pub site

„„ By Sarla Donovan SUMNER skateboarders are a step closer to having their ramp back. On Monday, the LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board approved the former Marine Tavern site at 26 Nayland St as the new home for the ramp, subject to resource consent. The temporary skate ramp at 36 Megan Wakefield Ave Carpenter was shut down on February 10 when it failed to comply with the city plan’s noise standards. Debate over the new site, which was proposed by city council staff, lasted for 90min. Most of those attending were supporters of Sumner Green and Skate Group, which has been working with the city council to find a place for the ramp while plans for a more permanent skate park structure are put together. Group member Charlotte Hudson said Sumner youth were becoming “increasingly disillusioned and disappointed” with the time it had taken to find a suitable site. “The closure of the last seven

months for them shows a lack of urgency and (risks) a loss of faith in the process from youth,” she said. Two deputations were made against the site. Among them was Glen Brown, whose mother lives 100m away and is the clos-

est resident to the Nayland St site. Mr Brown said she was worried about the noise from skateboarders using the wooden ramp. The sound from the ramp was intrusive at its original Village

In Brief

Green site and Mr Brown feared the new location would be even louder, as noise could echo off nearby cliffs, he said. Sumner Re Treat Apartments owner Roydon Smart was concerned at the proximity to busy Wakefield Ave. He also suggested that in the summer months, skateboarders wouldn’t go home after the ramp was locked at 9pm. Instead, they were likely to use the new Sumner Centre car park opposite the site, he said. This would create noise issues for guests at the Sumner Bay Motel behind the car park, he said. City council parks recreation planner Megan Carpenter said as part of the resource consent, the site would have to comply with noise restrictions. Community board member Darrell Latham asked city council staff to seek confirmation around the safety of the proposed site from the Christchurch Road Policing manager. Miss Carpenter said city council staff could also investigate installing a guard rail at the edge of the half-pipe ramp to ensure safety. Heathcote Ward city councillor Sara Templeton said it was great to get the project moving again.

JETTY IDEAS WANTED Ideas for the restoration of the Governors Bay Jetty can be submitted over the next two weeks. A community consultation event was held on Sunday but the Jetty Restoration Trust want to hear from anybody unable to make the event or with more to say. The trust will compile feedback before talking to key stakeholders and drawing up a brief with design engineers. Email the trust at savethejetty@ gmail.com with your ideas for the jetty. SUMMIT RD FEEDBACK Public consultation over proposed traffic restrictions on Summit Rd will close on Friday. Anti-social road use and vandalism have prompted the city council to look at restricting night time road access to Summit Rd between Rapaki and Gebbies Pass Rds and Worsleys Rd. Proposed time restrictions will prohibit vehicles under 3500kg from 10pm-5am, Thursday to Monday, and on public holidays. The proposal does not involve installing physical barriers blocking access to the road. Feedback can be made at www.ccc.govt.nz and closes on Friday at 4pm.

Permanent safety barriers for Main Rd „„ By Sarla Donovan PERMANENT safety barriers at the site of a fatal crash on Main Rd will be installed by the end of the month. In March, Mt Pleasant resident Maureen Imrie, 73, died when the vehicle her husband was driving slammed through a wooden barrier near Shag Rock and plunged into the sea. The Bay Harbour News reported on July 19 that it could be February before permanent safety barriers were installed. Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board member Darrell Latham has now been told by city council staff permanent barriers will be going in “promptly” with a completion date anticipated before the end of August. The barriers are part of pipe replacement work taking place on Main Rd. There have also been temporary barriers erected at the site in the past week. Dr Latham said he was pleased at the developments. “This is a very busy transit area for both vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians and while there are some site and construction

News Landmark building to reopen

In Brief COUNCIL HEARING FOR SCHOOL’S LAND SWAP A city council hearing panel on the proposed Redcliffs Park and Redcliffs School land swap will take place on Monday. Public consultation on the potential swap closed in June and attracted 853 submissions. Of those, 71 per cent (602) were in favour and 22 per cent (183) were against. Seven per cent (60) supported the proposal but had some concerns. The hearing panel will listen to submitters at Monday’s meeting before making a recommendation to the city council. NEW CAFE TO OPEN IN ORTON BRADLEY PARK A new-look cafe will open at Orton Bradley Park in October, replacing the former Victorian-themed tea rooms which closed over summer. Co-managers Maria Lee and Ursina Riederer say they plan on using locally grown produce. They want to engage children at Diamond Harbour School and local residents in growing food for the cafe, which will serve “innovative, wholesome food,” Ms Lee said.

„„ By Sarla Donovan ANOTHER heritage landmark is set to reopen in Lyttelton. The Lyttelton Harbour Board building, on the corner of Norwich Quay and Oxford St has undergone extensive renovations. The building was damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The upper storey, including the parapet and the roof, had to be removed. Brothers Aaron, Tim and David Donaldson’s property company Water Qual bought the building in November 2010. Though unaffected by the September 4, 2010, earthquake, the damage wrought on February 22, 2011, has cost $2 million to fix. Builders started work on the restoration in January last year, and two weeks ago the leasing sign went up. Aaron Donaldson said the top floor office space was already spoken for by “port support entities” and there were several parties interested in the ground floor space – suited to hospitality, offices retail. “We are confident of getting tenants, Lyttelton is highly sought after.”

RESTORED: Aaron Donaldson’s property company Water Qual bought the historic harbour building in November 2010. It has been repaired after it was badly damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. A lot of effort had gone into retaining heritage features, he said. “We’ve kept the wooden features in the interior and outside, a lot of work’s gone into pinning and supporting the historic brick facade, putting up eyebrows and moulding over the windows.” Mr Donaldson said it was guidance and support from city council heritage officer Brendan

Smyth and a $333,548 city council heritage grant that had made the restoration feasible. Although retaining historic features while also meeting city council compliance standards had been a costly and at times “almost impossible” task, Mr Donaldson said they had developed a “marvellous partnership” with the city council.

“It’s a crying shame that some make the effort to build sympathetically while others build monstrosities,” he said, citing the new Lyttelton Primary School as an example. “I think any government department should build sympathetically. (The school rebuild) would have been a prime opportunity to complement the heritage character of the area.” The Lyttelton Harbour Board occupied 5 Norwich Quay from 1880 until 1962. During that time, the ground floor had a reading room for visiting captains and the first floor contained the board room. After moving out in 1962, it was used first for storage by the railways before being renovated in the mid-1980s for commercial use.

NEW AMENITY:

Sumner’s new community centre and library is set to open on August

Celebrations planned for community centre opening „„ By Sarla Donovan SUMNER’S NEW community centre and library will officially open on August 19. Celebrations begin at 1.30pm with the library opening from 3pm. The $10 million Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre houses a library, meeting room and community room on the ground floor and a hall, activity rooms, kitchen and museum on the first floor. As of last week, 14 groups had confirmed bookings to use the spaces. These

included yoga and fitness classes, music, writing and photography workshops, as well as social groups for seniors, under-fives, children and young people. Lester Wolfreys, city council head of community support, governance and partnership, said the number of bookings had exceeded expectations, given the facility was still several weeks from opening. Costs for individuals and groups to book the community hall and stage or the activity rooms range from $10.50 per hour for

A BRANCH OF

not-for-profit community programmes, to $92 per hour for commercial events. City council staff will manage the centre for the first six months to ensure the building is operating as expected, Mr Wolfreys said. “(We need) to understand the dynamics between different users and how they’re using the facilities. This will inform the most appropriate partnership management model.” A 20-space car park is being built behind the centre on Nayland St.

Richard Suggate, chairman of the Diamond Harbour Community Association, writes about a recent Bay Harbour News story on the review of city council-owned land on Banks Peninsula The article on July 19 refers to the city council consulting with the Banks Peninsula Community Board on the sale of city council freehold land in Diamond Harbour. The most significant area is the land between the existing housing and Bay View Rd, between Te Papau Cres and Hunters Rd. This 38ha block was bought many years ago by an earlier city council to provide land for housing. In recent years, a group of local conservationists have started a native plant restoration programme in two of the gullies that bisect the property (Morgan’s and Sam’s). The restoration in Morgan’s Gully has been supported by an Environment Canterbury Immediate Steps grant. In addition, the local community has built a path linking Wai-

papa Ave and Diamond Harbour School to provide off-road access behind the township. During the District Plan process, the Diamond Harbour Community Association and Paula Smith unsuccessfully sought the protection of the three gullies that run through the area. The hearing panel rejected initial submissions because they were lodged at the ‘wrong’ stage in the process. A subsequent proposal backed by city council planners for the three gullies to be reserved from housing in any subdivision was also rejected by the panel. Direct approaches to the city council for the gullies to be reserved were rejected by the property section, as it would reduce the value of any sale of the land. The community would like assurances from the city council that any sale of the land results in the three gullies being reserved, and

that the walking access which has been created will be retained in public ownership. There are many other matters that also need to be considered, including roading access, provision of amenities and services, and the current use of the land for back access to existing properties. A careful and thorough community consultation process is required. The current valuation of $1.4 million is well below its (goldmine) market value. Considering the number of sections that can be created from the land, it would be shortterm folly for it to be disposed to one developer who, over many years, can make a fortune from its subdivision and sale. The city council would achieve greater return on its asset if it sells it over time in three distinct blocks (the three ridges) as demand grows for additional housing. As for the use of funds from any sale, it would be good to see them committed to purchasing key pieces of coastal land in the harbour basin to improve public access to beaches, or spent on providing for a community facility on the Godley House site.

„„ By Sarla Donovan NUMBERS OF titi, or sooty shearwater, continue to rise on Banks Peninsula. The efforts of the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust have seen numbers of nesting adults double in just a few years. In 2010, there were 27 adult pairs nesting. Now that figure is up to 50, thanks in large part to a predator-proof fence. Formed in 2001, the trust arose out of a project called Wildside, which was set up by farmer Mark Armstrong 25 years ago. There was only one pair of titi left in Canterbury in 1995, so Mr Armstrong built a chicken wire fence around the remaining two birds and also established a dense defence of predator traps. This was enough to ensure the pair’s survival and six years later the first chick fledged. By 2009, there were 21 adult pairs nesting and

one chick fledging. The following year, 27 adult

pairs nested with 20 chicks fledging.

Banks Peninsula’s volcanic soil WORK: Viticulturist Cliff Wood and Neil Pattinson prune the vines at the Kokolo site of Whistling Buoy. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

They may be small, but Banks Peninsula vineyards are starting to show they can match it with the big players. Bridget Rutherford reports TUCKED INTO the hillside in Charteris Bay is a little vineyard – a vineyard that’s making a name for itself. But it’s not the only one. What started as a hobby has turned into success for Neil and Jill Pattinson, with their vineyard Whistling Buoy taking out the top award at this year’s Wines of Canterbury awards. Their Whistling Buoy Kokolo Pinot Noir 2015 won the game trophy and a gold medal. It was later named champion wine. Its Kokolo Chardonnay 2015 and Kokolo Pinot Noir 2016 also earned bronze medals. Dr Pattinson, who is president of Wines of Canterbury, said there are four main vineyards that sit within the craters of Lyttelton and Akaroa harbours – and all were proving their worth. He said Banks Peninsula was

an emerging sub-wine region. But he said it was a given the area should produce nice wines – the very earliest plantings in New Zealand were in Akaroa in 1840 when the French

settlers arrived. “What’s unique about Banks Peninsula is the soils, the aspect, particularly north-facing slopes and basically being close to large bodies of water being

Akaroa and Lyttelton harbours, which help mitigate the ultraextremes.” He said the sea air didn’t seem to have any impact on the wine and they rarely suffered frosts.

Akaroa’s Meniscus Wines had success at the same awards. For the second year in a row, its 2015 pinot noir won the best pairing wine with lamb and got a silver medal. Its 2016 riesling and 2016 pinot noir also got bronze medals. Owner David Epstein said they were thrilled, especially with the lamb trophy. He said Banks Peninsula wines had certain characteristics that were starting to be recognised. “It just shows there must be something special in the terroir here in the ground that is very good for the grapes and the growth,” he said. “The volcanic soil that exists here from years back is giving a special character.” They produce pinot noir, riesling and pinot gris from the vines on the 2.4ha block which sits on the south edge of Akaroa. They make between 4000-6000 bottles each year. Mr Epstein said all the grapes are picked by hand before being sent to Waipara to be produced.

makes for great winemaking SPECTACULAR: At Whistling Buoy, sheep are used to help maintain the grass and leaves, while Meniscus Wines looks out over Akaroa Harbour.

He and his wife Gay bought the vineyard, formerly known as Vanstone Estate, and Crater Rim, at the end of 2008 and moved over from Australia. Previously, it was owned by Akaroa businessman Graham Vanstone, who disappeared without a trace in September 1999, before his first vintage was picked. After his disappearance, Mr Vanstone’s family rallied to produce Vanstone Estate’s wine before leasing the vineyard. They then sold to the Epsteins. Mr Vanstone was never found. Police say his missing person file has been referred to the coroner, who will make a ruling on his death. “It’s just one of the mysteries of

Akaroa,” Mr Epstein said. The Epsteins also run a tasting lounge for their wines on Rue Lavaud, but come October, they will open it on site at Meniscus. He hoped Banks Peninsula would become recognised as a fine wine growing area. The Pattinsons planted grapes into their 2023 sq m Charteris Bay property in the early 2000s. They went for the pinot noir vines to match the clay-based soil. The name, Whistling Buoy, was derived from the marker buoy that used to direct vessels into Lyttelton Harbour. Dr Pattinson said originally it was a hobby, but when they produced their first vintage in 2005 and 2006, they knew they were

onto something. So when a neighbouring property, Kokolo, came up for sale at Teddington about four and a half years ago, they decided to buy it. The 4ha site was already planted with pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot meunier grapes, which produced wine that was exported to Japanese restaurant chains. Dr Pattinson said they ripped out the pinot meunier vines to focus on the other two. The pinot noir grapes at Kokolo are also used to produce

Whistling Buoy’s rose. All the grapes are sent to Greystone Wines in Waipara to be produced, but Dr Pattinson said they had a lot of input into the winemaking process. Because of the sloping hills the vines are planted on, and the small distance between each, everything is done by hand – with a little aid. Their next door neighbour, Speaker of the House David Carter, often brought his sheep into the vineyard during leaf

plucking to maintain the grass and leaves. Whistling Buoy viticulturist Cliff Wood is into his fourth season at Whistling Buoy. Last week, he was out pruning and tying down the vines before they begin to grow again. “It’s pretty labour intensive.” Dr Pattinson said they knew the 2015 pinot noir had all the right elements – warm weather, low disease pressure, good vineyard management and good fruit. “This particular wine’s had 10 months on oak and there’s new oak in that not just old oak.” But this year they weren’t so lucky. They didn’t harvest because it was too wet for the grapes to ripen. “So in the end, we just had to walk away from it, which is quite a big hit.” But it won’t hamper the wine stocks at supermarkets and local restaurants. “We’ve got the 2015 and the 2016 has just been released, so we’ve still got plenty of wine. I’d need to sell three cases of wine a day to sell what we produce.” •Our People, pages 13-14

Neil Pattinson Our People Making good wine a labour of love Neil Pattinson and his wife Jill planted grapes on their Charteris Bay property to see if they could make nice wine. Now, more than 10 years on, Bridget Rutherford speaks to him about producing award-winning wines under the Whistling Buoy label Whistling Buoy’s 2015 pinot noir was named champion wine at the Wines of Canterbury awards. Were you expecting it? Of course (laughs). I’m very pleasantly surprised, we knew it was a good wine. I was absolutely thrilled we got a gold medal, then actually won best match with game so, to me, that was reward enough. But to actually then be named champion wine of the competition at the very end, that’s just the icing on the cake. What do you think made this wine so good? I think it’s a vintage, so it was a really good year and the disease pressure was relatively low. It was also warm so it had all the right elements. Obviously, you’ve still got to put in a lot of viticulture to manage the site. You’ve got to get good air flow and good light penetration. So I think it was good vineyard management, it was a good vintage, and then taking really good fruit and turning it into really exquisite pinot noir. It’s all the elements that

make a really good wine. Our winemaking is done up at Greystone in Waipara, so we don’t do it on site. So at harvest point, it’s shipped up to Greystone. But we do have lots of input on the style we want and the amount of oak and oak exposure and that comes to the sorting of the fruit and the whole process. It’s not hands-off. This particular wine has had 10 months on oak and there’s new oak in that not just old oak. It’s the second year a wine from Banks Peninsula has taken out the award, isn’t it? We got second last year. Meniscus Wines in Akaroa were the top pinot noir. The three top pinot noirs got the top three in that category – there was Meniscus, Tussock Hill and ourselves. Ours was the top chardonnay last year. I think that’s the thing about the peninsula, because it’s on clay-based soil and pinot noir does particularly well and chardonnay grape does as well. If you’re going to pick wine varieties Banks Peninsula exemplifies,

it would be pinot noir, pinot gris and chardonnay. And being so close to the water in Lyttelton Harbour, do you still get any frosts? We do right in the middle of winter, but not during the important growing season or the early start to the year. In places

like Waipara and central plains, you’ve got to have frost protection and we don’t have to bother with that. We have planted in that French-style, the spaces between vines and rows are quite small. So it does mean it’s very hard to mechanise and also we’re on sloping sites, everything’s

done by hand. So part of that is you’re in the vineyard all the time, you’re constantly monitoring, you’re constantly tuning, so it’s a bit labour intensive, but it means that labour of love transforms into really good quality fruit. •Turn to page 14

Our People ‘You don’t want to be so large you lose your focus’ •From page 13 What were you doing before you decided to put grapes in? I’m a clinical biochemist by training, so I worked at the hospital for about 14 years. Ivan Donaldson was starting up Pegasus Bay at the time, I also worked with a gastroenterologist – Bruce Chapman – and they own Terrace Edge; they put in some olives and grapes later on. So every medical conference you go to – a lot are overseas in beautiful places like France, Switzerland and Germany – then obviously part in parcel with that are the evening dinners and concerts and, of course, they’re all served with beautiful wine. You couldn’t not have an interest in wine. When did you decide to put in grapes? We had about 2ha of land at Charteris Bay and we had sheep. We’d gone through the typical lifestyle block, so we started with sheep, then we had a goat, and our daughter had a pony. Then I thought, why not put vines in? Did you ever think you would get to this point where you have award-winning wines? Yes and no. The initial reality was just: Can we grow some good grapes and produce good wine, mainly for our own consumption

ve Remo ells ng sm i k o o c am! e t s d an

LOCAL: The grapes for Whistling Buoy’s awardwinning 2015 pinot noir were grown at the Kokolo site, which overlooks Lyttelton Harbour.

and friends and family? But certainly, when you produce wine you want it to be really good, you don’t want people thinking, oh, Neil’s bringing out his home brew again. I didn’t want to make rubbish wine, we did at that time contract a really good winemaker – Grant Whelan from Kaituna Valley. So basically, it was good grapes and a really good winemaker and the rest is history. What do your kids do? Tony is in Coolangatta (Gold Coast). He’s just set up a pizzeria. He’s been over there for six

or seven years. He started off in Tasmania with a restaurant called Restaurant Red, then he came to Brisbane and met his partner and now they’re in Coolangatta. They are going to have our wine at the restaurant. Our daughter Kate is trained as a teacher, and she’s working at Manuwera Institute of Technology as a departmental manager. And our other son Chris is a winemaker. He’s now working for Sherwood Estate in Waipara, I’m wanting

him to take charge of the half acre. So before you turned your focus to Whistling Buoy, where else had you been working? After the hospital, I joined a biotechnology company called Life Technologies, then I became chief executive of Canterbury Scientific. I resigned from that a year ago to focus on building the brand and establishing a sales network for Whistling Buoy. But I chair the board of a start up biotech company called AuramerBio out of Victoria University. And I’ve been doing some consulting work at Canterbury University for the Canterbury Development Corp. I’m just about to start a job at ChristchurchNZ as its senior adviser of innovation and commercialisation. You mentioned everything is done by hand. Do you have a bit of help to pick the grapes? It’s a social occasion. Here at

Kokolo, the picking, it’s three consecutive days. We have about 25 people and we fill about 10 big 400kg bins. I hear your wife Jill does a lot of maintenance around here? She has her own mower, she gets upset if I jump on it. But we do use sheep up on the vineyard, I do use the mulching mower, but we have sheep as well. Do the sheep damage the vines at all? You’ve got to be careful. There’s nothing on the vines at the moment so they’ll just chew up the grass. But during the season, you don’t want them on bud set, the only time you really bring them in is when you want to leaf pluck so when you’ve got fruit set, but the berries are really hard and green. The leaves are green they will probably have a crack at one or two bunches but they’ll think that’s rubbish. Do you hope to expand Whistling Buoy? If we can successfully establish the brand and get a really good route to market then, yes, it would certainly be quite nice to build it. But there’s a balance there, too, you don’t want to be so large you lose your focus. Being boutique is good. •Making wine on Banks Peninsula, pages 10-11

Nel plans to make it in red and black From metro MVP to Mitre 10 Cup „„ By Gordon Findlater SUMNER’S DYLAN Nel will now turn his attention to proving himself in a red and black jersey after dominating in the division one metro competition. Nel, 25, not only won this year’s MVP medal race, he completely dominated it, winning by the largest margin in the award’s history. The South African No 8 finished with 27 points, 11 ahead of University No 8 Brad Hemopo in second. The Sumner player also finished as the leading try scorer in the competition with 16, four more than any other player. “It’s all guns blazing, the body’s feeling good. I just want to take the momentum from the club season into the Mitre 10 Cup,” said Nel. Nel is expected to be part of the Canterbury squad which will defend the Ranfurly Shield against Mid-Canterbury in Ashburton on Friday. He started at No 8 and scored a try for Canterbury in their 71-5 win over Wanganui at AMI Stadium in June. He has already been part of

the Crusaders environment after being called into the squad earlier this year as injury replacement for Kieran Read. His long term goal is to secure a permanent position in the top flight, something he would like to do in his adopted home, rather than in South Africa. “Definitely the Crusaders, one hundred percent. The environment in that team is amazing,” said Nel. While has Nel captured plenty

of personal accolades, his club were unlucky not to finish the season with silverware. A penalty kick on full-time was the only thing which separated Sumner from New Brighton in their 17-19 plate final loss at Rawhiti Domain. New Brighton held a 16-10 advantage late in the game before a drama-filled final five minutes. “We ended up going down their end and getting a penalty try to go a point ahead with only

a couple of minutes left,” said Sumner coach Martin Dodgson. “They kicked off, we tried to hold on to the ball in our own half and then we conceded a penalty. The guy slotted it and that was full-time.” Dodgson described the team’s overall play as a one of their poorer days at the office. However, with their two tries being penalty tries, there was one highlight for Sumner. “Our scrum was phenomenal,”

said Dodgson. The usually robust New Brighton pack was dominated throughout, resulting in referee Blair Barclay awarding the two penalty tries at scrum time. Like his team, Sumner first-five Nik Cumming came within a whisker of a season to remember, finishing second in the leading points scorer race with 151. He finished just one point behind Christchurch’s Dan Dorgan. •More sport, page 18

Tim WraighT and Ché VinCenT - Changing STorieS Both Tim Wraight and Ché Vincent live in the Motueka region in the top of the South Island, an area of diverse landscapes and environments from which to draw inspiration for their work. Tim’s carved wooden work for ‘Changing Stories’ exhibition explores the traditions associated with the reverence given to relics and remains, using the cultural practices of making intricate containers that different cultures fashion to hold these precious objects, Maori wakahuia (treasure boxes) and wakatupapaku (bone boxes) and European reliquaries which held the bones of saints, are the starting point for these pieces. Found remains of creatures and objects from the natural environment in his home area. Tim has constructed stories around fictional and whimsical; taking an object and giving it a new narrative and honouring its previous existence. Ché’s work for this exhibition is formed by his passion for botany and natural processes; exploring the patterns created by plant forms by the way water changes and repeats a flow pattern by decay and renewal. He uses recycled ‘Edges’ by Ché Vincent from the copper panels through a process of serendipitous exhibition ‘Changing Stories’ at experimentation. Ché has developed a fluid and Little River Gallery from August 5th intuitive approach and has developed methods of melting, beating, bending, and fusing copper into organic forms. Copper is a lovely metal to work with; malleable and enduring with a beautiful cast of warm colours. ‘Kid Who Dreamed of Leaping Through The Stars’ by Tim Wraight from the exhibition ‘Changing Stories ’ at Little River Gallery from August 5th

Romeo Juliet T H E R Y M A N H E A LT H C A R E S E A S O N O F

A NEW BALLET by Francesco Ventriglia

Isaac Theatre Royal 25 – 26 August

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR: PATRICIA BARKER


FALL I N LOVE THIS WINTER W I T H T H E R OYA L NEW ZEALAND BALLET’S WORLD PREMIERE OF ROMEO AND JULIET

ROMEO, ROMEO, WHEREFORE ART THOU ROMEO?

A sunlit piazza, the candlelit corner of a noble ballroom, a moonlit balcony… when young lovers meet, the world is stilled… then changed forever. Italian choreographer Francesco Ventriglia creates a new production of Shakespeare’s great love story, especially for the Royal New Zealand Ballet. This brand new ballet, with exquisite sets and costumes by Oscar-winning designer James Acheson (The Last Emperor, Dangerous Liaisons) brings to life all of the splendour and seduction of Renaissance Verona, swept up in Prokofiev’s exhilarating, passionate score. Join us as we follow the Montagues and Capulets in Shakespeare’s original tale of two starcrossed lovers though desire, struggle and tragedy. Sure to be the highlight of the 2017 arts calendar this is a production not to be missed. CHOREOGRAPHY / FRANCESCO VENTRIGLIA COSTUME & SET DESIGN / JAMES ACHESON MUSIC / SERGEI PROKOFIEV LIGHTING DESIGN / JON BUSWELL DRAMATURG / MARIO MATTIA GIORGETTI CHOREOGRAPHIC ASSISTANT / GILLIAN WHITTINGHAM CONDUCTOR / HAMISH MCKEICH

ISAAC THEATRE ROYAL Friday 25 August 7.30pm Saturday 26 August 1.30pm Saturday 26 August 7.30pm

Choreographer Francesco Ventriglia, dancer Madeleine Graham and Leading Guest Artist Sir Jon Trimmer at Ryman Healthcare’s Anthony Wilding village.

Ryman Healthcare is thrilled to once again be associated with the creation of a major production for the Royal New Zealand Ballet. Ryman Chief Executive Gordon MacLeod said residents and staff were planning a whole lot of Romeo and Juliet-themed events to celebrate the season. “We’re delighted to be able to support the RNZB’s production of Romeo and Juliet. We think our residents – and the rest of New Zealand – are in for a real treat. Our ballet company is a national treasure and it is a pleasure to be able to support the company as they take their performance nationwide.’’ Mr MacLeod said staff at Ryman’s 30 villages had a whole lot of events lined up to make sure everyone gets into the swing of things.

ACCOMPANIED BY THE CSO The RNZB is absolutely thrilled to have the musicians of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra joining us once again for our Christchurch performances. Christchurch born Hamish McKeich will conduct as the CSO brings Prokofiev’s beautiful ballet score to life, filling the Isaac Theatre Royal with the unbeatable sound of live orchestral music.
