Continued from page 1. My Abandonment will be directed by Debra Granik and produced by Anne Rosellini whose 2010 film Winter’s Bone was nominated for four Oscars. My Abandonment is adapted from the novel of the same name by Peter Rock and Thomasin is set to take on the challenging role of 13-year-old Caroline. Thomasin heard about the role through her American manager and agent, and got sent a few pages of the script. “I did an audition tape, and then I got a call back and did an audition over Skype,” Thomasin said. She said the call-back was

With Dawn recently having a triple bypass and Hugh suffering from a stroke, the pair were not sure they were going to make it to their 60th anniversary – now they are planning many more years to come. “Now we’re good as gold.” One of their daughters, Tania Hawkins, was delighted to be able to celebrate the momentous occasion with her parents. “They have been drivers in all of our lives. No one is more excited to hear about the stuff going on in our lives than mum and dad, which is something we’re all really grateful for.” Dawn said it was important for married couples to look after each other, work together and never go to sleep on an argument. “We’ve been holding hands for 65 years and married for 60.” The couple will celebrate their anniversary with family on March 16.

her out on a date, then they went with some friends to the movies. “Mum and dad thought the world of Hugh, it was beautiful really.” The pair got married when they were 21 and have recently celebrated their 81st birthdays – being born just 11 days apart. They have since travelled the world together seeing 28 countries, have had three children, 12 grandchildren and five great grandchildren. “Our family has always been so supportive and so helpful,” Dawn said. She said the secret to a happy marriage was finding things you have in common and enjoying life together. The couple sang for many years in the northern suburb’s Company of Musical Players, and have since joined various other local singing groups. “It was just fantastic – a very special time for us,” Dawn said.

actually more overwhelming than the call to say she landed the role. “It’s very rare to get a call back let alone get the part; I was in a bit of shock. But I’m really excited.” Thomasin is known by many New Zealanders as the actress who played the role of cancer sufferer Pixie Hannah on Shortland Street. “This will be very different from playing Pixie - my character had cancer, was very sporty, confident and witty. How [Pixie and Caroline] view things is very different.” The rising star has also played roles in Consent: The Louise

Nicholas Story, Jean and a small part in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. My Abandonment follows Caroline and her father (Foster) who live in Forest Park, a temperate rain-forest in Portland. When authorities evict them from their hidden world they embark on an increasingly erratic journey to find a place to call their own. Thomasin’s research for the role involved tree-climbing, research into foraging and living off the land and working on her US accent with her Wellingtonbased accent coach Jade Valour. “I’m really happy that Caroline loves the outdoors because I

also love the bush and going tramping. “[Inherently] Caroline and I are very different people. I’ve been exposed to so much social media and surrounded by people my own age, and she’s never really around people her own age. “But we are similar in the way that she’s very observant and she also has a great relationship with her dad.” The staff and students at Marsden were excited for Thomasin to begin shooting the film. “We are thrilled for Thomasin and know she will be absolutely amazing in the role,” Marsden School Principal Jenny Williams said.

Developing friendships through IHC By Sharnahea Wilson

Tom Hall of Karori started volunteering with IHC at the beginning of the year and has developed a great friendship with Liang Zhou who has autism. IHC New Zealand works to pair volunteers with a person who has similar interests to them so they can support that

person with learning a new skill, achieving a goal or simply hanging out as friends. “I got in contact with IHC in September last year wanting to volunteer,” Tom said. After about a month and a half of training Tom was paired with Liang who enjoys swimming at Karori Pool each week. “Over the last two months I have been developing a friend-

ship with him.” Tom said Liang does not communicate much verbally so at first it was difficult to know what Liang was trying to say, but recently he has begun to understand Liang. “He just communicates differently to us.” Tom has had an interest in helping people with intellectual disabilities from a young age

Liang Zhou and IHC volunteer Tom Hall. PHOTO: Sharnahea Wilson

when he formed friendships with intellectually disabled children in primary school. He is now studying psychology and philosophy in university and hoped to one day be able to work with more people with IHC. Tom said volunteers get a lot out of the friendships they make through IHC. “It’s a commitment for at least five years – it could even be a life time – it’s a friendship.” Tom recommended people who are interested to look at volunteering with IHC. “You will be paired with someone who has similar interests to you, so you still do things you would normally do. Some people enjoy music or sport – it could be anything. I really enjoy it.” IHC welcomes applicants from 17 years of age and all walks of life.  To get involved in volunteering with IHC visit http:// www.ihc.org.nz/get-involved/ volunteering

Creating a space for creatives to flourish By Sharnahea Wilson

Looking to create a space for artists to practice their skills and share ideas, some Johnsonville creatives have come up with the idea of The Hobby Lounge Creative Studio. Sam Malcolm, Hayley Moore and Peter Walter wanted to create a space where they could encourage creativity, provide a positive work environment, and where people could share ideas. At the Yoobee School of Design Sam studied film and animation, while Hayley got a qualification in graphic design – yet neither are working in their chosen fields. “It’s difficult to find work in those areas at the moment,” Sam explained. “We want to give that opportunity to other people by providing a space where they

can be creative.” The idea behind The Hobby Lounge is that the founders will provide equipment such as sewing machines, paints, paper crafts and even camera gear for people to use. “We want to give people access to equipment and a place to work outside of their home, where people can share ideas.” Hayley said the idea has been in circulation for about a year, but they recently decided they needed to act on it. “It’s finally going somewhere,” she said. To gauge community interest The Hobby Lounge will be holding an inaugural showcase evening at Sub Urban Co-Working in Johnsonville Mall – who have provided the space free of charge. The group became a Regis-

Police have received three reports about car windows and windscreens being smashed after a vandal seemingly attacked parked cars in Wadestown. The vandalism occurred overnight on March 8 on Blackridge Road, Constable Jason Mokrzecki of the Johnsonville Police said. “Rocks were used in each case, with a contractor’s tractor

and two private vehicles being damaged,” he explained. “As no eye-witnesses have come forward relating the incidents, and there is no CCTV in the area, Police do not currently have any suspects in mind. Police patrols will continue through the area, and Community Patrols have also been advised. “At this time, the incident appears to be a ‘one-off’ for the area, and merely an act of mindless vandalism.”

A sustainable idea has boomeranged its way across the ditch and into Karori with the help of some local women. Karori resident Emma Howell came across the initiative ‘Boomerang Bags’ on Facebook, the idea being that shoppers take a reusable bag for free and bring it back the next time they shop. Emma then posted the idea to the I Love Karori Facebook page where she received interest from local women who put their hands up to help. “The main purpose of the movement is starting conversations to introduce people to better alternatives to everyday items we take for granted,” Emma explained. She said the group has had working bees where they use material from curtains, t-shirts, pillowcases and sheets to create the Boomerang Bags. The group has had a fabric drop day where

people bring in spare material, a cut-a-thon where locals have volunteered their time to cut the bag templates and working bees over the weekend. “We are aiming to have 1000 bags ready for the launch on June 5 – World Environment Day.” Emma said Karori New World has jumped on board, offering to be their first store, and New World’s Andrew Summerville has been supportive “as he is with many community projects”. Makara School is also getting involved by doing the logo prints on the bags, and Karori Arts and Crafts as well as the Karori Community Centre have offered up their space for the Boomerang group. Emma works with the staff from Sustainability Trust, where they will give the trust thermal curtains and the trust will give the group curtains which aren’t fit for purpose. She said being environmentally aware was becoming increasingly important after

having children. “It’s really good to teach them along the way.” The group is still in need of donations of curtains, t-shirts, table cloths, sheets, pillowcases and net curtains – which they will use to make produce bags with drawstrings.  To volunteer with the group or follow their journey, visit Karori Boomerang Bags on Facebook.

A Victoria University student will have her designs published in one of Australia’s leading interior design magazines thanks to her innovative concepts focusing on helping Syrian refugees. Master of Interior Architecture student Sumaiya Abdul Rahman was one of 12 recipients of the Artichoke Magazine Prize, in which she will have her designs published. Sumaiya’s design proposes a refugee resettlement centre in Wellington with 100 homes and aims to create connections between refugees and the local community. “I’ve always wanted to design something that would help people in some way,” she said. The design included a community hall, education rooms, childcare

centre, prayer rooms and a market place, where locals and refugees could buy and sell goods. “By creating a familiar, welcoming space, the design improves a refugee’s chance of a successful transition to life in New Zealand,” Sumaiya said. “Although not all Syrians are Islamic, they are familiar with Islamic design, so my designs include elements of that style.” “I incorporated Islamic mashrabiya, which are lattice-like screens, to enhance privacy. I also created two living areas, one for visitors and one for family, which is typical of most Syrian homes, and placed bedrooms at the back of the house or upstairs, away from public view and visitors. “Currently refugees go into council housing. These are generally de-

signed for Western families of two parents and two or three children and are not necessarily suitable for larger or extended refugee families.” Sumaiya’s supervisor, Victoria School of Architecture lecturer Daniele Abreu e Lima said her research showed how interior architecture could facilitate the inclusion of refugees. “With the increased quota of refugees from 2018, this will become an increasingly important issue for New Zealand.” The Artichoke Magazine Prize for Design Communication is an annual award promoted by IDEA (Interior Design/Architecture Educators Association), Australasia. Sumaiya said “It was amazing” to find out she would be in Artichoke Magazine and was looking forward to seeing her designs in print.

Help Kiwi kids fight the big C this March This March Child Cancer Foundation needs the help of everyday Kiwis to raise $750,000 to support more than 500 families’ nationwide in hospital and at home. Robyn Kiddle, Chief Executive at Child Cancer Foundation explains: “More than three children in New Zealand are diagnosed with cancer every week. Child Cancer Foundation receives no direct funding from the government, and we rely heavily on the generosity of New Zealanders.” For nine-year-old Stephanie Hayes, the discovery of a lump on her head just before her eighth birthday was the beginning of her family’s cancer journey. The results of initial tests and X-rays of the lump came back normal and but Stephanie’s Mum Catherine says the decision was made to remove it. “We thought we were booking her in for day surgery, but then we got the biopsy results and they changed everything,” recalls Catherine. The biopsy came back positive for cancer and the Wellington family were immediately transferred to hospital in Christchurch, where Stephanie’s diagnosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia was confirmed. “It was so unexpected; cancer hadn’t been on our radar at all – there was disbelief, shock and stress.” Stephanie and her parents spent the next six weeks in Christchurch while she underwent induction chemotherapy. “During this time our daughter changed in front of our eyes – all her hair fell out, her energy levels plummeted, she rapidly gained weight and her mood changed.” They were able to return to Wellington but the next five months were spent travelling to and from Christchurch Hospital for week-long stays every three weeks. Like over 70% of families the foundation supports, having to travel away from home for treatment was one of the challenges they faced. Catherine was able to work from the hospital, but Stephanie’s Dad Dave had to commute between the two Islands for work in order to be there for his daughter as much as possible. “Stephanie found that second period of treatment really hard,” says Catherine. “She was hooked up to machines day and night

unable to go outside or leave the ward. She felt very isolated. She missed being at school, she missed her friends and she missed her Dad when he wasn’t able to be with us.” Stephanie suffered side-effects from chemotherapy, but Catherine proudly says that throughout this “gruelling treatment” she developed a maturity and resilience beyond her years. “As parents, we are very proud of her. She coped way better than we did – we were grateful to have Child Cancer Foundation there to support us as parents with a sick child.” For Stephanie it was the Child Cancer Foundation Beads of Courage® programme that got her through the toughest times. Each bead represents a treatment (e.g. chemotherapy, injection or scan); an experience (e.g. hair loss, isolation or fever) or milestone. “Knowing she was going to get a bead was often the incentive to get through some intense treatments. She uses the beads to tell her cancer story.” Stephanie is now half way through her treatment and is back to school after missing one term. She is enjoying time with her classmates and has had the all clear to start swimming again, and Catherine says her sporty child is looking forward to getting back on her bike. “The second half of the journey is less about cancer and more about being a kid – enjoying school, swimming, gym and all the other things she loves.” Child Cancer Foundation Chief Executive Robyn Kiddle explains: “No two families’ cancer journeys are the same. Child Cancer Foundation offers each family targeted, practical, and meaningful assistance. Every donation made during March will go towards ensuring these children and their families always feel supported when walking the cancer journey.”  Help children like Stephanie, their parents, siblings and whānau this March by: Volunteering to collect for Child Cancer Foundation on March 17 or 18, (visit www.childcancer. org.nz or call 0800 424 453 to register), make a donation on the foundation’s website or donate to street collectors.

Wellington students protest ‘rape culture’ By Sharnahea Wilson

Hundreds of school students gathered outside Parliament on Monday to protest against the growing rape culture in Wellington. The students from Wellington high schools, including students from Thorndon’s Wellington Girl’s College, stood in solidarity against statements about rape culture that have been published on social media by a group of male students. The protest called for all New Z ea la nd seconda r y schools to have compulsory teaching about consent and about the rights of women. The protesters chanted “two, four, six, eight, stop the violence, stop the rape,” before Year 11 Norma McLean of Wellington High School spoke

to the growing crowd. “I wish that I could say that it is unbelievable that men get away with sexual abuse, but frankly it isn’t.” She said hearing stories about rape culture from her friends was becoming more common. “So I am proud to be a part of this protest. I am proud of everyone standing here today. Proud that you are a part of this change. Proud that we can stand together and move to not being afraid anymore.” Deputy Pr ime Minister Paula Bennett then addressed the crowd and said the government had heard their voices. “As a politician, but more impor tantly I think as a mother and grandmother and a daughter and someone that’s heard it, we see you today – we hear you.”

Wet weather sent the organisers of the first ever Churton Park Multicultural Neighbours Day smartly back to the organisers table. To account for the rain the cohosted Churton Park Community Association and Churton Park Community Centre event offered a slimmed down and altered programme that still delivered a great result snugly based within the community centre and surrounding areas on Sunday, March 12. Community Centre Advocate Tracey Read said the event

was a great success and well attended, despite the rainy day. While dance, demonstrations and musical performances were delivered indoors, tantalizing ethnic food enticed event goers to buy and eat food under the eaves around the centre. “Churton Park has a very resilient community,” Tracey said. “So much hard work had gone into preparing for this event… we were not willing to allow the rain to spoil our day which was mainly to be held in the open air.” Churton Park resident Rachel Qi said, “I enjoyed being

part of the organising team and [being] the Master of Ceremony[s]”. Churton Park Community Association president Brian Sheppard said, “The sense of community, shared by the people who live or work in Churton Park, is truly inspiring”. He said Churton Park was continuing to grow very rapidly and the community recognises “the need to build on the existing spirit of neighbourliness and ensure that it is available to all, wherever they live in Churton Park and whatever their ethnic background”.

Freedom and Structure: Cubism and New Zealand Art 1930-1960 Freedom and Structure looks at the significant effect of Cubism on New Zealand painting, and reveals its impact on the work of initial adopters John Weeks, Louise Henderson and Colin McCahon, and artists who engaged with the style later, including Melvin Day, Cha rles Tole and Wilfred Stanley Wallis. For Weeks, Henderson and McCahon, Cubism provided the framework for a sustained investiga-

tion over many years. This exhibition explores how from the late 1920s to approximately 1960 these New Zealand artists incorporated the radical language of this style, weaving it into their work in inventive ways. Cubism is also a contested movement and the subject of ongoing debate; it was complex and disparate at its inception and comprised different schools and factions.

This exhibition identifies how artists experienced Cubism as a mode of artistic expression in Paris in the 1920s and how Cubism made its way as a formal artistic language into New Zealand art in works that broke with local traditions.  26 Feb–21 May 2017, Pātaka Art + Museum. Toured and curated by Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki. Entry is FREE. PBA

Enliven’s Longview Home in Tawa is home to former All Black Bruce Watt. He shares his story about his rugby career and his time in the All Blacks in the 1960s. Originally from Hunterville, Bruce’s rugby career first began at Whanganui Technical College where he was team captain for the first 15. “Once I realised I had some talent, it became a dream to play for the All Blacks,” says Bruce. After finishing college Bruce played provincial rugby, first for Whanganui and then for Canterbury. “At that time there were no Crusaders or Hurricanes. You had to perform well in your club to be considered for the national team.” After wearing the Canterbury jersey for three years Bruce was selected for the All Blacks. “It was a great feeling, but I didn’t let it change who I was,” says Bruce who, at 23 years old, went on to play for the All Blacks for three years. During that time he played 29 matches and eight tests. “I played first five-eight position, so I was the Beauden Barrett of the team, or the Carter. We went to Britain for six months in 1963 where we beat Wales six nil. We hadn’t beaten them since 1935. I kicked a drop goal in that game.” He says playing rugby overseas was a huge thrill, but teases that unfortunately being in the All Blacks in the 1960s didn’t pay what it does now. “We got paid a dollar a day for being on tour, and we all had jobs back in New Zealand. I worked for the Bank of New Zealand from the age of 16 until I retired at 50,” Bruce recalls. After leaving the All Blacks Bruce con-

tinued to play rugby, but retired at the age of 30 because it was taking its toll on the body. “I got injured a lot but nothing to stop me from playing. I got concussed a few times and my specialist now tells me it could have caused my Parkinson’s, but there’s no proof of that.” Bruce, now 78, moved to Tawa’s Longview Home in December last year because his Parkinson’s has worsened. But he says he’s enjoying living at the Enliven rest home. “It’s like a second home. I like everything about it, like the friendship, and the staff have been very good. There’s quite a lot of entertainment and I join in with whatever I can, it keeps me active and busy – I like keeping my mind alert.” Enliven’s Longview Home is one of just a handful of fully-certified Eden Alternative homes in New Zealand. The home’s focus is on providing residents with companionship, variety, fun, meaning and purpose, as well as practical daily support and clinical care.

Mt Kaukau’s beloved bronze dial pinched By Kateni Sau WHITIREIA JOURNALISM STUDENT

The popular 45-year-old ‘distance dial’ located on top of Wellington’s Mt Kaukau has been stolen. Wellington City Council spokesperson Richard MacLean said the theft took place in the last couple of weeks and has left the council unhappy. “We were very annoyed. People find it very useful and would like to see it returned,” he said. Richard was glad there had not been reports about any other thefts but urged people to

keep an eye out for the distinctive dial. He said they have been overwhelmed by the amount of help they have received from the public but have yet to hear about the return of the distance dial. “People have been sharing it on social media so far and getting the word out there.” The 900 millimetre distance dial was donated by the Lions Club of Khandallah in 1972 and has been a popular attraction at the top of the 445-metre peak. Wellington North Lions Club president Peter Dunshea said the club had the distance dial installed as part of a project

Peter said the council hoped to find the original members involved with the project in case a replacement was needed. “[They] want me to find and track the original members of the club so we can find the original manufacturer.” If the dial is not returned, Richard said council would

He said it would cost hundreds to get a replacement made if they decided to use a cheaper material. “We are looking in the hundreds depending on the material we use for the replacement. “We would need an expert if we get a bronze one re-made which would cost thousands.” If you have any information on the missing distance dial or its whereabouts please contact the Wellington City Council.

autumn

If it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you!

Join Olympic Gold Medallists at the Porirua Grand Traverse

AND ROOF RACK CENTRE

GUARANTEED LOW PRICES YEAR ROUND

Looking for a goal this autumn? Have a crack at the annual Porirua Grand Traverse and you get to rub shoulders with two Olympic gold medallists. Established in 2006, the multi-faceted race around Porirua City’s iconic hills, forests, coastlines and waterways has become an annual highlight, attracting almost 1000 participants. The highlight of this year’s event will be the participation of rowing superstar, Mahe Drysdale. The 2012 and 2016 single skull gold medallist is a keen cyclist and multisporter, and will line as a team kayaker in the feature multisport event and then join the masses for the 7.5k Arena Fitness Fun Run/Walk. Drysdale will be accompanied on the day by Porirua’s own double Olympic gold medal rower, Dick Joyce. Joyce won gold in the coxed fours at the 1968 Olympics and in the eight at the 1972 Olympics. He is a trustee of the Porirua

Grand Traverse charitable trust that organise the annual event. The 12th annual Porirua Grand Traverse is scheduled for Sunday 2nd April and the array of events is backed up by the event’s tagline: “All Ages, All Abilities, All Amazing”. Based at Whitireia Polytechnic campus, the traditional multisport race involves a 10k kayak, 24k mountain bike and 18k mountain run, either solo or in a team. In recent years organisers have also introduced races in each discipline for those who want to just kayak, mountain bike or run. Options also include the Arena 7.5k Fun Run/Walk, which is less challenging but no less spectacular and perfect for families, schools and recreational fitness enthusiasts. The annual Schools Challenge is a highlight, with prizes for the first boy and girl in school year categories; for the fastest school (first

four to cross the line); and for the school with the most entrants. Entries for the 2017 Porirua Grand Traverse are now open. Race day is 2nd April. For full information and online race entry visit: www.pgt.org.nz.

Pencarrow and the Rimutaka Rail Trail The Rimutaka Cycle Trail offers a diversity of scenery and eco systems to be enoyed by all ages. Starting at Burdon’s Gate in Eastbourne, cyclists can enjoy the trail right round to the old Rimutaka railway incline and back into the Hutt Valley with outdoors company Everyone’s Adventure.

been kitting riders up for years now and are an established part of the Wairarapa tourism experience. Along the way you can see the wide range of birdlife at Te Rakau Sanctuary on the midway point of the trail. This is an ideal way to make a weekend of it as you can stay there in a cabin overnight then resume cycling and be given a tour of the sanctuary as well.

Free Kayak Demos During daylight saving hours Canoe & Kayak do kayak demonstrations at Titahi Bay on Tuesday evenings from 6pm. They need to be called to check that they are heading out and to know what kayaks you would like to try.

April 2

Outside of daylight saving, they can organise a demonstration for you to suit. This needs to be arranged with the shop by ringing (04) 477 6911 or emailing wellington@canoeandkayak.co.nz This is a great way to try before you buy.

Writer launches last in a series of books on personality types By Sharnahea Wilson

A Karori writer will launch the last book in her series The Music of Life about personality types at Vic Books next week. The writer, who goes by the pen name Nonen Titi meaning ‘non entity’, will launch her philosophy book Homological Composition at Vic Books on March 21. Nonen came across the concept of personality types 20 years ago when she was studying psychology, but when she returned to university to study philosophy in 2005 she researched the topic more in-depth. Nonen believes there are 16 different personality types in the world – and because there are different personality types, education needs to change to accommodate these types. “Once you look at things from a personality perspective everything changes,” she said. “People worry that you’re going to put them in boxes but they end up being put in boxes by not realising they have a certain personality type.” Nonen said many children have difficulties in school because not every child learns or communicates the same way, yet they are all under the same school structure. “I believe this is going to be a big issue.” Nonen said she, along with many other philosophers, believed there were 16 different personality types which people are born with and which have little to do with their

environment. “If someone has a creative streak but doesn’t become a violinist or painter – that might be due to their environment but the inherent personality type remains the same.” She said many people have taken the Myers-Briggs personality tests online which have been made accessible to the world. In her book, Nonen uses a musical analogy because she said though there might always be instruments, talent and a melody, there were always different styles.

“I believe there are different styles within each personality just as there are different styles of music. “It just for people to acknowledge we’re not all alike. Learning about these personality types changed my thinking on everything.”  Homological Composition will officially launch at Vic Books, Kelburn on March 21 starting at 5.30pm with snacks, drinks and a talk from Nonen. Free entry.

Why should I get immunised for the flu? Influenza (the flu) is a serious illness in New Zealand. Approximately 150 people die from the flu every year, with several hundred more hospitalised. Even without hospitalisation the flu can mean more than two weeks off work. Being immunised for the flu is the quickest and easiest way to protect yourself and your family.

YIP ‘Second to none’ Service Real Estate Extraordinaire William YIP of Harcourts always aims to put his clients first, in a business model which ensures quality service to achieve a fantastic sale result. Often Real Estate Agents sign up a client and leave them to do everything themselves, and only start working when the sign goes up. “We start working for our clients way before they are thinking of selling,” William said. His aim is to ensure no client undersells their biggest asset. “To achieve this, we provide the most comprehensive strategy that doesn’t cut any corners,” he said. That way when an offer comes in, you know you’ve covered everything and that is the best possible price.” He said even once his clients’ houses are sold, his post-market support is ‘second to none’.

“We will help you with your relocation, recycle any excess furnishings to local charities, sell any items on your behalf, and rubbish removal is always free.” William YIP’s team has also been running their own community grants for the last two years and have donated significant time, money and support to the local community. William said his team believes in ‘no regrets’ and in doing the best possible job in preparation and marketing, you will get the best possible price in the market. so when they get an offer they know no corners have been cut in the process. “Choosing to work with a comprehensive team like us is your insurance against underselling your biggest asset. Plus it will be easier for you and you will also be supporting the local community as well.”

Simple design tips for tiny kitchens Maximize the space and efficiency of your small kitchen with these design tips, sure to spark some renovation inspiration.

This was on top of video footage of security evicting anyone seen sculling a beer, regardless of their intoxication level. Security are being given too much power and there are individuals who wear a security uniform and then think that gives them a right to act big and tough. I have no issue with them tackling someone who runs out on the field because N during play, the field is for the players. I have no issue with them escorting a drunk or abusive person out the gates because that’s detrimentally affecting the viewing experience, but sculling one beer on an embankment doesn’t justify that. My childhood in the mid to late 1990s was littered with moments of running out on Lancaster Park after Canterbury and Crusaders games. There are plenty of instances where I got mini cricket bats signed by fielders on the boundary. It’s all part of it.
