LEGEND: Former Canterbury rugby representative Ian Penrose features in a 2018 calendar of local sports heroes. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Calendar of sports legends „„ By Sophie Cornish NEW BRIGHTON rugby legend Ian Penrose is one of many eastern suburbs sporting greats to feature in a new calendar. Mr Penrose, 76, played 103 games for Canterbury, including

64 as captain, from 1963-71. Local sports heroes over the decades will be acknowledged in the New Brighton Museum’s 2018 calendar. Each year the museum has a different theme for its calendar. Mr Penrose said he was hon-

oured to feature in it. “I always find them (the calendars) very interesting having lived down there for so long,” said Mr Penrose. Museum secretary Peggy Butterfield said the idea came about when she was looking through

an old Aranui speedway book. She noticed east Christchurch had three world speedway champions. Ivan Mauger, Ronnie Moore, Barry Briggs and another top rider in Geoff Mardon. •Turn to page 7

GREAT RANGE OF GIFTS

„„ By Sophie Cornish MARINE PDE could be narrowed near New Brighton Mall to make the area more pedestrian-friendly. That is one option of two the public is being asked to give feedback on as the city council looks at ways to boost New Brighton’s business area. A budget of $3.2 million has been allocated to the project. Option one is focused on reducing vehicle speeds on Marine Pde between Hawke and Beresford Sts to 30km/h, as well as a new road layout at the Hawke St and Beresford St intersections to reduce vehicle numbers. Under option one, the centre barrier on Marine Pde would also be removed to narrow the road, improve safety and increase space for activity next to the mall. Key features for the mall will include a combination of asphalt and paving, new seating and improved landscaping. Option two has fewer improvements for Marine Pde but still includes the same changes without the removal of the centre barrier. •Turn to page 6

Inside

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THE NEW Brighton Museum is always full of great ideas for its calendars – and the 2018 edition is chocka with sporting stars from the eastern suburbs. There are plenty of them, from rugby players and cricketers to the league boys and surfers and, of course, the fantastic speedway riders of yesteryear – Ronnie Moore, Ivan Mauger, Barry Briggs and Geoff Mardon. We highlight one of the sports stars on page 1 today – Ian Penrose. Ian, now 76, played 103 games for Canterbury, including 64 as captain, between 1963-1971. He led the side against the Lions in the infamous match in 1971 which became known as the Battle of Lancaster Park. I kind of liked those sorts of games – from the safety of the embankment of course. – Barry Clarke

News Red zone’s rabbit island „„ By Sophie Cornish RABBITS LIVING on a roundabout in the red zone have motorists hopping mad. About 20 black rabbits have been spotted at the busy junction of Anzac Drive, New Brighton and Travis Rds. They have attracted an audience, with motorists driving slowly to look at them and others parking up and crossing the road to get to the roundabout. Motorists say the junction has now become dangerous and have posted their concerns on the People’s Independent Republic of New Brighton Facebook page. One resident saw a woman take three children across to the roundabout, while another mentioned several motorists driving as slow as 30km/h to get a glimpse of the rabbits. Transport for Christchurch posted a video on its facebook page of the rabbits with a safety message. “While it might seem like a good idea to take your children to see the roundabout rabbits, the safest way to do this is to point them out as you drive past,” the message said.

RED ZONE CONSULTATION Public consultation on the 10 different land uses for red zone land closes on Monday. The Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area stretches from Barbadoes St to Bexley and New Brighton and Regenerate Christchurch have provided a combination of different land uses including housing, ecological restoration and visitor attractions. FLYING FOX TO BE REMOVED The controversial Muka Park flying fox is set to be removed by contractors this week. Due to its lack of compliance with city’s night-time noise limits, the Coastal-Burwood Community Board voted to remove the 50m flying fox. The outcome is described as a ‘no-win’ situation as many residents opposed the removal. The removal will cost $20,000.

RED ZONE BUNNIES: One of up to 20 rabbits spotted on the Anzac Drive roundabouts. Safety concerns have been raised as people cross the busy intersection to see the rabbits.

“It is not a good idea to take them across the road onto the roundabout. We all know how unpredictable young children can be when over-excited, this could also endanger the rabbits and scare them into running on to the road. This is a state

highway and heavily used by large trucks.” An Environment Canterbury spokeswoman said it has received a number of calls about the issue. “While it is not our responsibility but the landowners, it

is a situation we can help get resolved,” she said. “With this in mind, we have contacted the New Zealand Transport Agency, which we understand is looking into control options to reduce the risk.”

NEW BRIGHTON FIREWORKS The annual New Brighton Guy Fawkes event will take place this Sunday. Due to work on the pier and the new seaside playground, there will be limited space for public viewing this year. Both South New Brighton and North Beach Surf Lifesaving Clubs will be open to relieve pressure in central New Brighton. The event will take place between 9 and 10pm.

Playground to get waka „„ By Sophie Cornish A MAIN feature of the New Brighton seaside playground will be a traditional waka. A ship was originally planned in the initial design phase. However, the waka design will reflect discussions during the consultation process about interweaving cultural elements. The budget for the playground is $3 million. The equipment will cost about $750,000. In comparison, the Margaret Mahy Family Playground in the central city cost $3 million, with $2 million spent on equipment. It was opened in December 2015 and is the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. Development Christchurch Ltd worked with Matapopore Charitable Trust and Ngai Tahu to develop the waka concept. Matapopore general manager Debbie Tikao was pleased about the waka and wants to see more cultural equipment in playgrounds. “It’s great that our kids learn through playing on more of their own history,” said Mrs Tikao.

WAKA DESIGN: DCL’s plans for the waka, PLAY: A global motion spinner is another feature planned for the playground.

“I think we will be seeing more of this sort of thing happening, there is some integration of Maori design components in playgrounds within the North Island and we are certainly seeing more of

that happening it the South Island,” she said. Mrs Tikao enjoyed working alongside DCL and Ngai Tahu on the project. “It wasn’t hard, we made sure that we were working with one

A global motion spinner, water cannons, musical equipment and a splash pad with spouts is among the list of different equipment. The Halberg Disability Sport Foundation and Be Accessible worked with DCL to audit the wheelchair accessibility elements as well as an inclusive carousel. Workshops were completed by DCL with local school children and community groups to discuss designs. A more formal consultation process with the public also followed.

News Roar of vintage bikes on the beach „„ By Sophie Cornish THE SOUND of vintage motorcycles revving will boom around New Brighton beach on Saturday. New Brighton was one of only of a handful of beaches in New Zealand used for organised racing during the early 1900s. But on Saturday they won’t be racing – the bikes will travel along the beach in a parade. Manufacturers would send their motorcycles to Christchurch to be raced and trialled on the beach. The youngest bike in the show will be a 1939 350cc Triumph. The fifth annual Smash Palace Bike Show will focus on the late Geoff Hockley, a former bike enthusiast and author. Mr Hockley was a New PROUD SON: Tony Hockley will attend the Smash Palace Bike Show at New Brighton beach on Saturday, which will honour his late father Geoff Hockley a former bike enthusiast.

Brighton identity and a founding member of the Pioneer Motorcycle Club. In the 1960s, Mr Hockley wrote A Tribute to A Gentleman about the history of the club. The event will be linked to the book and Mr Hockley’s son Tony will attend the event. Tony, 82, will be the judge of the ‘Gentleman’s Tribute’ on the day, an award for who he believes is the standout bike and rider on the day. “I’ve known for a wee while it’s been coming up and I think it’s a wonderful idea because it’s the sort of thing my dad would have always been involved in. I’ve always lived in Brighton and I think it’s a really good thing for the area,” he said. Event organiser Anna May said previous motorcycle shows in

New Brighton have been a success. However, this is the first year the bikes will ride on the beach. “It’s sort of rekindled New Brighton’s love for motorbikes and the history,” said Ms May. Twenty bikes will be paraded on the day, two at a time. The races will begin in front of the New Brighton Surf Life Saving Club and continue for 400m around the legs of the pier and back toward the surf club. Ms May wants the focus to be on the demonstration, not racing. “These bikes are not exceptionally fast, but they will be spectacular.” “Its not going to be a big fast drag racing thing, we are very careful to point out this isn’t a race, it’s a demonstration . . . we are demonstrating the way it use to be,” said Ms May.

Birthday celebrations for seaside market „„ By Sophie Cornish THE NEW Brighton seaside market celebrated its 17th birthday on October 21. Beginning in 2000, the market once began as a small community affair every couple of months. It began weekly on Saturdays in November 2013. There was a wide variety of music and entertainment during the birthday market day including an open mic day hosted by Willie McArthur from Willie’s Open Mic Night. There was also birthday cake.

The New Brighton Project coordinator and market manager Martha Baxendell is pleased to reach the 17th-year milestone. “My team and I have worked really hard especially over the last five years to create a weekly space that is inviting with a special focus on family fun. We are so happy with where we are and hope to keep going from strength to strength alongside New Brighton’s regeneration,” said Ms Baxendell. It is one of Christchurch’s only non-commercial markets with stall rental fees going towards advertising, entertainment and

running costs. Surplus funds are returned to the organising group, the New Brighton Project, and are used for other community initiatives it runs such as the blanket bank and the Christmas parade. By Christmas this year, market organisers hope to fully transition to using environmentally friendly packaging for all its stall holders, where possible. This involves moving away from plastic and polystyrene. Some food vendors have already moved towards using eco-friendly biodegradable plates and cutlery.

Feedback sought on plan to narrow Marine Pde •From page 1 This option would see new paving throughout the mall, improved landscaping and new lighting, seating and other street furniture. New Brighton Business and Landowners Association manager Paul Lonsdale welcomes the plan, which he says will bring more foot traffic to the mall. “It’s got to enhance the foreshore area, when people

strengthen the commercial area. “Longer term, I’ve always thought that opening up Oram Ave and then having the ability to close Marine Pde down – either temporarily, on the weekends or, ultimately, permanently – is probably a good move to strengthen that connection between the foreshore and the business district,” said Cr East. “Quite often people will come down to various events, they will

go to the pier, they will go on the beach, but they don’t actually make that connection across Marine Pde to actually get back into the mall,” he said. Opening up Oram Ave will allow traffic to drive through the mall. Feedback closes on November 12. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the Marine Pde plans? Email sophie.cornish@ starmedia.kiwi

IN ACTION: Avonside Girls’ High student Lilian Exton playing boccia at the National Halberg Junior Games. She is presented with an award for the best non-classified female at the event from Black Cap Grant Elliott.

Success for disabled athletes TWO DISABLED athletes from Avonside Girls’ High School have recently made their mark at national events. Lilian Exton and Alisha Mill competed at the Halberg Junior Games in Auckland and the National Boccia Championships in Wellington earlier this month. Run by the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation, the Halbergs are a national three-day sport competition for physically disabled and visually impaired children and teenagers aged eight to 21. There are a variety of sports including swimming, athletics, wheelchair racing, boccia and basketball. Lilian and Alisha represented Canterbury at the Halbergs and came second and third respectively in the A-grade boccia category. Boccia is a precision ball sport similar to bowls and petanque played by athletes with physical disabilities. Lilian also received the award for the top athletics nonclassified female at the closing ceremony. “We went to closing ceremony on Sunday and no one knew who was going to get what awards.

awards. I was one of the lucky ones who got an award for athletics non-classified best female. It was an amazing feeling,” said Lilian. At the boccia champs, Alisha’s team won a silver medal and Lilian won the categories for open class champion and most improved player. Alisha has acioscaphlohumeral muscular dystrophy, causing her muscles to be weak. She has very little muscle around her shoulder, upper arms and abdomen, which makes her core unbalance, making it difficult to walk unassisted. This has also caused her facial muscles to stop working. Lilian has otospondylo megaepiphyseal dysplasia, the only person in New Zealand to have the condition which makes her bones grow too much, causing joint paint and rigidness. Both students are also deaf, their conditions affecting their ability to hear. Head of learning support at Avonside Katrina Boxall said the two girls are fiercely independent and competitive. “They have amazingly supportive families also, just really awesome people,” said Ms Boxall.

MEDAL-WINNER: Alisha Mill from Avonside Girls’ High School with her silver medal from the National Boccia Championships.

Te Ara Tuhura Kapahaka Showcase

Social Studies Level 2

This year our annual music tour visited Shirley Intermediate School where we gave an hour long concert to a large and enthusiastic audience. At the end of our performance, Shirley Intermediate performed a stirring haka.

On Thursday 31st August, Mairehau High School hosted a Kapahaka Showcase featuring schools from the ‘Te Ara Tūhura cluster’ (Belfast Primary School, Rawhiti Primary School, Belfast Kindergarten, New Brighton Primary School, St Francis of Assisi Primary School, Queenspark Primary School, Parkview Primary School, Mairehau Primary School and ABC Belfast).

The Social Studies level 2 class are currently planning and participating in social actions.

In the afternoon we performed to another keen audience at Mt Hutt College, before staying the night in Tekapo. Our final concert was at Mackenzie College in Fairlie. Thank you to all our staff and students who performed so well and to our tech crew, Niko Smith, Don MacDonald and Paul lucas. We couldn’t do it without you.

The event was a celebration of the group of schools involved in this cluster group, and a celebration it sure was with well over 500 students taking part in some very passionate kapahaka performances. A huge thank you to all the teachers, kapahaka tutors, teachers, staff members, parents and students that helped to make this event possible. It was definitely a huge event for Mairehau High School!

One group chose to support 0800Hungry by organising a fundraising night here at school. The students had a very successful quiz night and have raised in excess of $250.00 for their charity.

Christchurch East Schools- Te Ara Tūhura

Mairehau High School is still committed to the vision with other Christchurch east Schools based on the premise of sharing, collaboration and working together to enable every student in the east to be provided with opportunities to curriculum delivery and curriculum access. I am confident in ensuring a quality education system for all students who live in the the eastern communities. Students will have choice, opportunity and access to learning. I take this opportunity to acknowledge all of the Te Ara Tūhura Christchurch east Schools/ early Childhood Centres for participating in the fantastic Kapa Haka showcase held in term 3.

A time to enjoy

I wish to conclude by saying that as Principal I get much pleasure watching students enjoying and having fun in their learning. We need to have the ability to laugh at ourselves and with others, and a time to enjoy the moment. I was so proud of the students who participated in the recent Mairehau High School talent quest, School Music tour and international day. All events were much fun for students, staff and community. The musical and dance performances were simply fantastic, and well done to all. Thank you to all who helped make these events such a success. Harry Romana Principal

This year we had three entries, with one group and two soloists carrying on our proud tradition. entrants have to write and perform their own original music. We are thrilled to announce that Darrell Suaesa Faamau who joined up with students from Haeata Community College, with their group called Proud Brown, came 3rd in the National Finals in the Smokefree Pasifica Beats category.

Music Tour 2017

Te Ara Tuhura Kapahaka Showcase

Social Studies Level 2

This year our annual music tour visited Shirley Intermediate School where we gave an hour long concert to a large and enthusiastic audience. At the end of our performance, Shirley Intermediate performed a stirring haka.

On Thursday 31st August, Mairehau High School hosted a Kapahaka Showcase featuring schools from the ‘Te Ara Tūhura cluster’ (Belfast Primary School, Rawhiti Primary School, Belfast Kindergarten, New Brighton Primary School, St Francis of Assisi Primary School, Queenspark Primary School, Parkview Primary School, Mairehau Primary School and ABC Belfast).

The Social Studies level 2 class are currently planning and participating in social actions.

In the afternoon we performed to another keen audience at Mt Hutt College, before staying the night in Tekapo. Our final concert was at Mackenzie College in Fairlie. Thank you to all our staff and students who performed so well and to our tech crew, Niko Smith, Don MacDonald and Paul lucas. We couldn’t do it without you.

The event was a celebration of the group of schools involved in this cluster group, and a celebration it sure was with well over 500 students taking part in some very passionate kapahaka performances. A huge thank you to all the teachers, kapahaka tutors, teachers, staff members, parents and students that helped to make this event possible. It was definitely a huge event for Mairehau High School!

One group chose to support 0800Hungry by organising a fundraising night here at school. The students had a very successful quiz night and have raised in excess of $250.00 for their charity. Members of our school community attended and supported us through donations. A very big thank you to our Year 12 students John Osgood, Parata Rurehe-Moke, Matt Murtha, Ben Moore and Ben larsen.

FOCUS ON HEALTH Modern diet leads to illness! It’s not what you eat but what you absorb Two Australian Naturopaths Stephen and Shane noticed at the end of the 20th century more and more of their patients were experiencing gut, bowel and digestive issues that were often leading to more serious chronic health conditions. Being Naturopaths they wanted to find what was going wrong and began extensive research. What they found was although their clients were generally eating good food they were not obtaining all the nutrients required for good health from this food. Further research showed one of the main problems was the digestive system, “it’s not what you eat but what you absorb.” Another well-known problem is the soils the crops are grown in have been depleted of many trace elements and other nutrients that are known to be essential for good health and therefore the crops and food are also depleted. If we do not obtain all the nutrients we require the body will compensate to some degree but a lack of too many nutrients will eventually lead to health issues. Based on this they developed VITAL GREENS, a nutrient dense powdered formula that provides superior absorption as well as comprehensive nutrition. They decided on a powdered formula that could be made

as a great tasting drink because liquid nutrition is the easiest way for the body to absorb nutrients especially if digestive issues are present. The formula provides 76 vital ingredients that work together in synergy optimising each other’s absorption and benefits. Vital Greens contains a carefully balanced blend of nutritionally rich greens, vegetables, fruits, minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids, plant and herbal extracts, superfoods, powerful antioxidants, probiotics, essential amino acids, digestive enzymes, fibre plus a uniquely alkalising pea protein. It provides superior nutrition to a multivitamin and anyone will benefit from it. It is designed to provide all the nutrients the body requires for good health. It is also ideal for those in poor health, those recovering from injury or sickness, children, athletes, poor eaters and the elderly. It is also suitable for people with dietary restrictions and is gluten, wheat and dairy free. Vital Greens will help remove toxic waste from the body while supporting all organs. You’ll often notice more energy and endurance, better sleep, a more positive mood, skin problems improving, less sickness, improved eyesight and overall better more optimum health. Further information and how to obtain the maximum benefits from Vital Greens as well as tastings is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

Anxious Kids What can you do? We are all aware that anxiety in our children has risen considerably over the last 7 years, the forces that rattled our city have continued to rattle its citizens and this has impacted on how our children exist and respond in their day to day lives. Of course this is not the only contributor and it must be remembered that any mental health problem is not a clear cut issue. However parents, teachers, doctors and other people closely working with our children and young adults have noticed a change in behaviour. They are seeing things such as increased irritability, aggression, separation anxiety, sleep disturbances and moodiness. The normal response of anxiety to a future challenging event has become an out of proportion reaction to normal daily events and this is where the problem lies. So what natural options are there to help support children’s mental health? Probiotics - Promote healthy balance of chemicals in our brain The connection between the brain and the gut is key to understanding and maintaining good mental health. You need a well balanced microbiome (gut flora), with an abundance of good bacteria to ensure the creation and regulation of neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that send messages to and around our brain. Serotonin is one of these neurotransmitters - low levels are associated with anxiety and other problems such as depression. It is important to note

that the majority of serotonin is actually made in our gut! Fish oils - Reduce cellular inflammation Fish oils are a source of Omega 3 fatty acids, unless we eat at least 3 - 4 meals of oily fish per week we generally aren't getting enough of this essential fatty acid (EFA). The result is an imbalance between this antiinflammatory EFA and the inflammatory EFA omega 6 (found in most animal products, cereals, vegetable oils). Low levels of omega 3 (particularly DHA) in the brain can result in increased inflammation and the disruption of signaling between nerves, this contributes to conditions such as anxiety. Taking a supplement that also includes vitamin D will help increase the absorption of the EFA’s. B Vitamins & Magnesium - correct nutritional deficiency Low levels of nutrients such as B vitamins and magnesium have been linked to anxiety and other mental health conditions. When we are under stress our bodies use more of these nutrients and our requirement is higher. B vitamins are necessary for the production and release of neurotransmitters, while magnesium helps to regulate the nervous system. Magnesium helps to relax, calm and protect the cardiovascular system which can be put under extra stress when suffering from anxiety. Theanine - promote a calm but alert state of mind Another really helpful nutrient is L-theanine, this is an amino acid found in green tea. The action of theanine is to relax without sedation - basically it encourages an alert but relaxed state of mind and in doing so is very effective at reducing anxiety. There are also other remedies such as Bach flower remedies, essential oils and herbs that can make a big difference in your child’s mental health. Herbal teas such as Passionflower, Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Licorice are all helpful to encourage a feeling of calm. Bach flowers can be individually prescribed to suit the individual child’s emotional personality, they are very effective in helping to reduce feelings of fear, loneliness, fatigue, hopelessness, restlessness and sadness. Our Herbalist Nadine, is available to prescribe Bach flower remedies as well as herbal formulas and give advice on which nutrients are the most suitable. She is available for private consultations on Tuesday and Thursday 10-2pm and within the store at other times.

Clinic offers easy solution to varicose veins If varicose veins are a problem for you, the dedicated, professional team at Transform Clinic in Mandeville Street Riccarton can provide the perfect solution. Firstly, they will give you a free assessment of your veins, and then suggest the appropriate method of treatment, depending on the condition of the veins. There are two methods available – endo-venous laser treatment, which is used for both smaller and larger veins, and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy. Both are easy and straightforward, and you can be fully active immediately afterwards, without needing to take any time off work, or curtail your normal activities. The only requirement is for you to wear special stockings for two weeks following treatment, and daily walking is recommended. Both these treatments give long-term relief from the pain and discomfort of varicose veins, and as Transform Clinic’s Jenny Little points out, they have become the treatment method of today, with surgical removal of varicose veins now considered obsolete. Jenny advises having treatment as early as possible when varicose veins start to appear, as left untreated they may lead to venous ulcers and venous eczema, although

if these have developed, Transform Clinic can treat them as well. Transform Clinic has an affiliation with health provider Southern Cross and relationships with several other health insurance companies, which means you are usually covered for treatment, providing it is included in your policy. Transform Clinic also offers a full range of appearance medicine options, including skin rejuvenation and skin-tightening treatments designed to improve skin quality and enhance self-esteem. They remove superficial veins on the legs and face, and also provide mole mapping, mole removal and primary skin cancer removal. Their website, www.transformclinic.co.nz, has information on all the various treatments available. “We are a ‘one-stop shop’ for all cosmetic medicine treatments,” says Jenny. Transform Clinic is discreetly located at 52a Mandeville Street. Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 8.30am, with late nights on Tuesday and Thursday, and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. Phone 343-2880 to enquire about treatments or make an appointment.

REAL ESTATE Spectacular seascape classic

17

11 Cholmondeley Lane, Governors Bay Auction: Thursday, 9 November 2017 Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | Listing ID BE192909

Locations like this don’t come up often but with our vendors committed to a move overseas, this is a rare opportunity to settle somewhere very special. In a park like setting with gently sloping lawns and lush, established gardens the property connects directly to the waterfront via a pathway. With nothing in the way, it’s a magnificent panorama out to the Lyttelton Harbour and surrounding hills. Peaceful and ever changing, this must be the ultimate antidote to life’s daily stresses. The classic homestead sits at the top of

the property enjoying the best of the views and sun. Built with family in mind there are four bedrooms, two living, 2 sunrooms and a large library/office that could be a fifth bedroom. The main family area is open plan with a huge kitchen at the heart. Granite benches and state of the art appliances make this a home-cook’s paradise. The dining area and adjoining living both open directly to a large deck and the ever-present vista. A wood burner with a feature stone surround adds the cosy warmth of real flame. Adjoining these spaces is the second

living room, which in turn connects to a sunny rear facing conservatory and courtyard. Upstairs is the master suite, library and a second sunroom with views right to Godley Head - the perfect spot to watch ships come and go, with yachts in the foreground and kids jumping off the pier at the bottom of your garden. There are two luxury bathrooms one being ensuite. There is two car garaging and tons of off street parking for the whole clan. Set in the small harbour community of Governors Bay the property is an easy

commute to central Christchurch, and a short stroll from all the community amenities including bars and cafes, the school and the local pool. Open Homes Saturdays and Sundays 12:00pm - 12:45pm. See you at the open home or to arrange a private viewing of this property call Debbie Pettigrew on 027 777 0411 or Debbie Johnson on 021 0515225 from Harcourts Grenadier Beckenham (Licensed Agent REAA 2008) or phone the office 337 1316

preconceptions of classical music being 'stuffy' or 'intimidating' by presenting a fresh and approachable ethos that appeals to listeners from all walks of life. e SOAR programme prepares audiences for new heights and perspectives. Weaving through changing tapestries, you'll find yourself adri in daydreams (Ireland) where life's complexity is seemingly simplified (Ritchie), primordial soundscapes pacify (Ker), and naivety is blissfully deliberate like a game of hide and seek (Schubert).

NZTrio, New Zealand's leading piano trio concludes its 2017 Christchurch concerts with Soar this November with guest violinist and fellow Mainlander, Manu Berkeljon. Cellist Ashley Brown and pianist Sarah Watkins are delighted to be working with Manu, who is originally from the West Coast and currently based in Sweden with a position in the Dalasinfoniettan orchestra, to bring this powerfully moving programme to Christchurch audiences, including the world premiere of Anthony Ritchie's Childhood and the NZ premiere of Onaia by Dorothy Ker. Described as a 'national treasure' and 'New Zealand's most indispensable ensemble' (William Dart, NZ Herald), NZTrio is renowned for their eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent, and warm kiwi stage presence. ey smash outmoded
