Design students take on Fashion Week By Emma McAuliffe

Newtown design student, Susan Colton, is one of 16 students to be taking part in New Zealand Fashion Week this year. Susan is a student with New Zealand Fashion Tech and was one of 36 chosen to take part in the 2017 Resene NZ Fashion Tech Colour of Fashion project; an education-meets-colour collaboration staged every year in the lead-up to Fashion Week. From a total of 36 Diploma students studying at NZ Fashion Tech campuses in Auckland and Wellington 15 were selected to travel to India in July, 16 were selected to show at New Zealand Fashion Week in August, and seven achieved both.

Junior designer selected for fashion week “Resene described Suzie Q as having “a sweetly pretty camellia petal elegance, full of pink perfection.” “Flowers always make a great motif so I looked into pink camellia’s and found they symbolise loss or given to someone who is missed, in Suzie Q’s case I decided she is missing a part of herself. “Combining that, Suzie Q wears her memories embossed into her coat as armour to protect her while her heart is left open with the plunging neckline and all the lacing is there to hold her together. “I always aim to create something fashion forward unique and to be true to who I want to be as a designer,” Susan explained. Susan said following her debut with her fellow students at fashion week she would be headed home to work on a mini collection for her diploma show. She said she hoped to travel in the future before returning to work on her own fashion label.

Continued from page 1. Susan was one of the seven lucky enough to be selected for both India and New Zealand Fashion Week and was excited about her selection. “I was so incredibly nervous,” she said. “With all the anticipation it was a very surreal moment when I heard my name called out. “It’s a dream come true, I’m beyond excited.” Susan was currently in India and said the opportunity led her to embrace colour more. “The colour and culture is so amazing and inspiring,” Susan explained. “I’ve learnt so much about the inner workings of the machinery and processes that go into producing fabric and mass production of clothing.” Susan said her design chosen for fashion week reflected the ideas of missing something. “My Resene colour was called Suzie Q and my name being Susan gave me the idea to give [my outfit] a life-like persona.

Consultation on Wellington City Council’s land contribution to a planned development at Shelly Bay has now started. Council has invited public submissions on a proposal to sell and lease some of its land to Shelly Bay Limited, so a planned development of housing and public space could go ahead. Shelly Bay Limited was a joint venture between Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust and developers The Wellington Company. Shelly Bay Limited’s development included plans for a new neighbourhood, with 350 homes, green space, cafes, bars, shops and a 50-bed boutique hotel.

They received resource consent for the development in April. The proposal involved council selling a plot of land to Shelly Bay Limited for housing, and leasing a plot of land and two buildings on the waterfront for the development of housing and commercial/retail space. It is also proposed that council and Shelly Bay Limited shared the cost of the infrastructure improvements (including upgrading the council’s seawall and road) and the development of public space. A councillor working party has overseen the development of the consultation process and material. Working Party Chair Coun-

cillor Diane Calvert said she wanted to ensure the public had “clear and complete information about the proposal to sell and lease land to Shelly Bay Limited”. “We’re keen to hear people’s view on the proposal.” Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust chair Wayne Mulligan said the development at Shelly Bay would play an important part in the iwi achieving its aspirations for its people. “The development of Shelly Bay will greatly enhance our efforts to assist our people in achieving their social, educational and cultural goals, something all Treaty settlements should provide.” Port Nicholson Block Settle-

ment Trust and council would be contacting businesses in Miramar and Maupuia to invite them to a meeting about the development and proposal for Shelly Bay. Public drop-in sessions would be held at Shelly Bay from 11am to 3pm on Sunday, July 23 and 30 including a short presentation by Shelly Bay Limited at 12pm and 1pm and a display of the proposals. Public consultation started on Monday and close on Monday, August 14 at 5pm.  To find out more detail about the Shelly Bay proposal and to make a submission go to or email your submission to

inbrief news

Kids dream of giving back, survey finds Local children had the opportunity to share their dreams for themselves and the future of New Zealand recently through The Dream Bank. The nationwide survey of the hopes and dreams of young New Zealanders provided a glimpse into the country’s future, with over 5,000 children taking part in the inaugural Sir Peter Blake Trust Dream Bank. From June 7 to July 6, Westpac bank and the Sir Peter Blake Trust asked young people, aged 5 to 18, to share their dreams for themselves and for New

Zealand. More than 10,000 dreams in total were received. The Dream Bank campaign was part of the Trust’s annual Red Socks Day celebrations and the results, including by region, were now available online. Schools that took part in the bank included Clyde Quay School, Lyall Bay School, Miramar Christian School, Scots College, St Anne’s School, St Anthony’s School, Wellington East Girls’ College and Wellington High School and Community Education Centre.

Shelley Campbell, Sir Peter Blake Trust CEO, said The Dream Bank gave the team a “real insight into what our young people are dreaming about, what they hope the future of New Zealand will look like and how they want to make a difference to create a more positive future for New Zealand and the rest of the world”. “We’ve seen a strong focus on the environment, with one in three young Kiwis dreaming of solving key issues such as global warming, the amount of plastic and rubbish in our

oceans and waterways, deep sea mining, and the survival of endangered species like our native kiwi. “A significant number also told us that they were dreaming of having a job where they could ‘give back’ or ‘make a difference’. “It was really heartening to see that kids today aren’t just thinking about their own wants and needs but also about how they can actively contribute to the happiness and wellbeing of those around them,” Shelley said.

Slips, slides and southerlies By Emma McAuliffe

There were slips, flying trampolines and large swells last week as a southerly storm hit Wellington. Metservice reported heavy rain, cold fronts and up to 160kph winds on Thursday and Friday. “Damaging southerly winds continued until Friday for Wellington… before gradually easing Friday morning,” MetService meteorologist Tom Adams said. “Wellington saw gusts of 160 km/hr at Mount Kaukau earlier Thursday, and Cook Strait recorded mean wind speeds of 130 km/ hr (70 knots) and 11 metre waves Thursday morning,” he added. Sl ip s we r e r e c o r d e d throughout the southern and eastern suburbs, including Seatoun Heights, Melrose, Evans Bay, Hataitai and Miramar. Wellington City Council received calls about cables down in Miramar, scaffolding down across overhead wires in Seatoun, an uprooted tree in Strathmore Park

and trees down in Island Bay and Hataitai. A tree collapsed onto a house in Worser Bay and was removed by crane on Saturday, closing Marine Parade to traffic. Meanwhile, Wellington Regional Civil Defence Controller, Bruce Pepperell, had a stern word for locals regarding trampoline safety in windy weather. “We live in Wellington. It gets very windy at times. I’m sick of seeing pictures of trampolines where they’ve obviously not been secured and so they’ve taken off like Mary Poppins,” he said. “It’d be funny if it wasn’t so dangerous and disruptive. “We’ve got one trampoline wrapped round a power pole in Seatoun. “If owners can be good sports and fasten a line to their trampolines or weigh them down with a heavy object – preferably not a child – then you’ll save us all a lot of hassle.”  Were you affected by last week’s southerly? Let us know at

Cable Car closed next week Wellington’s Cable Car will be out of action for a week from Monday, July 24 for scheduled annual maintenance. The Cable Car will resume service on Monday, July 31.

Buses will run every 20 minutes from 7am to 7pm weekdays and from 8:40am to 6pm at the weekend.

300 years of Cartoons on show Over 100 cartoon portraits from the Alexander Turnbull Library collections will feature in the exhibition Ludicrous Likenesses: The Fine Art of Caricature at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery. The free show opens on August 3 and runs until October 23. Covering over 300 years of cartoon portraiture, the exhibition presents original caricature art in a wide range of styles from traditional paintings and drawings to contemporary digital media and shows how modern caricature has evolved from the print media into a predominantly digital art form.

inbrief news Heart Attack Awareness Month The Heart Foundation is calling on Kiwis to put aside their concerns about ‘wasting time’ and dial 111 immediately if they suspect they or another person is having a heart attack as part of their awareness month in July. July is the foundation’s Heart Attack Awareness month and they are imploring New Zealanders to stop putting themselves at increased risk of death or permanent heart damage by delaying that important call. The Heart Foundation is running its national Heart Attack Awareness campaign until July 31.

Papertown Artists Rob Kennedy, Caron Dallas and Meg Prebble have collaborated on a new art exhibition in Newtown. The exhibition Papertown is now on at the Our Town Newtown Pop-up space, 199 Riddiford St. The exhibition is open Tuesday through Friday afternoons until 6pm and all day Saturdays.

Build to start for flats in Berhampore By Emma McAuliffe

A housing development for Berhampore is set to begin next week. Housing New Zealand has confirmed construction work would begin at the site on Britomart Street on Monday, July 24. A Kaumatua blessed the site last week, then it was handed over to Housing New Zealand’s construction partner Armstrong Downes. Social Housing and Housing New Zealand Minister Amy Adams announced that the site at Britomart Street would be one of five in Wellington to be developed into social housing earlier this month. The previous units at the site were demolished in 2015 after being determined to be no longer fit for purpose. The other sites would be in Mt Cook, Newtown, Johnsonville and at the McLean Flats on The Terrace. All 145 units to be built across the city would be one bedroom homes. The site at Britomart Street was expected to house 34

one bedroom apartment style units. “The development at Britomart Street will help meet social housing demand for smaller apartment-style homes in central Wellington,” Ms Adams said.

“These new homes demonstrate our commitment to ensure all social housing tenants are provided with high quality housing. “All the new homes will be fully insulated, energy efficient, positioned to max-

imise exposure to sunlight, have modern kitchens and bathrooms, and provide both private and communal spaces for tenants to enjoy.” The development in Berhampore is expected to finish in June 2018.

Bay local to perform lunchtime concert

Visit us at

An Island Bay musician will be taking the stage on Tuesday for a special lunch time concert at Old St Pauls. Ian Logan’s concert, Café European, would be an accompaniment with his longtime musical collaborator, singer Magdalena Darby. The pair first met at Danny Boone’s drama and acting workshop in the 1990s in Berhampore. Magdalena was a tutor in voice and Ian was there for

acting. Magdalena’s regular accompanist, Jann Rutherford had recently left for Australia so Ian stepped into the gap. “That was a steep learning curve for me,” Ian said. “With Jann’s departure I had some big shoes to fill and had to quickly learn a more improvisation based style of accompanying.” They have now been performing together for about 20 years - in London and Paris as

well as New Zealand. The pair shares an affinity with ‘genre-bending’ artists like Nina Simone and French icon Serge Gainsbourg whose music cannot be fitted easily into one category. For the Old St Paul’s concert they would be drawing on the European tradition of intimate music venues and passionate emotion with French and German songs to the fore. There would also be space for the American Torch Song

Down but not out


Outdoor dining fees go free for smokefree On July 1 Wellington City Council adopted an initiative to encourage cafes, bars and restaurants with outdoor dining areas to go smokefree by offering free outdoor dining licence fees for 2017-18. Whilst outdoor dining fees for all businesses have been halved in the new Council Annual Plan, this is an additional incentive to help make Wellington smokefree by 2025. This means businesses who want to offer their customers a smokefree outdoor dining environment can now have their annual licence fees waived. Venues wanting to provide outdoor dining will still need to apply for a permit. A $95 application renewal fee for this permit still applies.

The Friday Circle will continue despite losing premises. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe By Emma McAuliffe

The Brooklyn Resource Centre would be closing its doors at the end of the year following a decision made at its latest annual general meeting. The centre, which hosts the Friday Circle Group and renters, including podiatrists, yoga and Mah Jong would close in December and be put on the market in spring. Centre coordinator, Jenny Swan, said despite the unfortunate news the Friday Circle would continue. The group allows for people, especially elderly, to come together

to eat, craft and socialise with each other. “The building itself will be up for sale in spring. But the society which runs it and has a charitable status, will carry on,” Jenny said. “These oldies here today will be supported the same way we always have with Tuesday lunches and Friday Days Out for the foreseeable future. “It will continue, not in our building, but in another local building,” she said. Jenny said others who used the centre would be able to decide what they wanted to do. “As for the renters at the centre,

they have a choice to stay on until the end of the year or find other accommodation. “We are really thankful for the renters who supported us through the years; we will miss supporting them as much as we will miss the centre.” Attendees at the Friday circle said they were very grateful to Jenny for helping continue it, despite losing their premises. “The house has been here looking after people for over 36 years, even before we had an official centre,” Jenny said. “It’s just a place and we will continue in other places.”

Returning to theatre after nearly two decades By Emma McAuliffe

Pete Edge would be designing the sound for A Doll’s House. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe

An Island Bay resident has returned to the theatre after 15 years of working around film. Pete Edge would be designing the sound and composing the score for A Doll’s House, which opens at Circa Theatre on August 5. A Doll’s House is an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s play of the same name, written by New Zealander Emily Perkins and set in modern day New Zealand. Pete said it was director Kather ine McRae who brought him back after over a decade away. “I think with theatre you need both self-belief and stamina and if you lack either of these things you can’t do it,” he explained. “Kathy brought me in as a composer and sound designer. “I’ve got a music al duo called The Gracious Devia nts, we write folky, romantic music. “The music I am doing for A Doll’s House is quite different. “There’s a huge departure from what

I’m used to doing.” I n h i s t i m e away Pe t e worked for Park Road Post Production and now works at Nga Taonga Sound and Vision- the New Zealand Film Archive. “I’ve always been interested in that immersive cinematic style,” he said. “The opportunity to do the music is great and I get to stretch some compositional muscles. “Certainly a lot of things have changed since I was last doing theatre. “Mainly technology- we used to use two CD Players but now they’ve employed a whole lot of stuff to create the effects.” Pete said he had enjoyed the return to theatre however, would wa it to decide on whether he would do any more shows. “There’s always the fear that it’s been a long time between drinks but the process has been great, it was like stepping into an old pair of shoes. “There’s a great bunch of actors. It’s really great to be coming back into theatre and to feel supported. “I’m definitely excited about designing my fi rst show in a while, it’s going to be good.”


10,000th visitor to He Tohu The new He Tohu exhibition at the National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa celebrated its 10,000th visitor recently. Twelve-year-old twins from Gisborne, were jointly given the honour of being the 10,000th and 10,001st visitors. He Tohu, a new permanent exhibition of New Zealand’s iconic constitutional documents, opened to the public on May 20. Since then over 1,000 school children have come through the doors, along with teachers, families, overseas dignitaries and international and local tourists.

Magic in the gardens Dear Editor, A little paragraph in our latest Cook Strait News (CSN July 13, p.4) has made me think happy thoughts. The call is going out for ‘summer stars’ to perform in the Summer Magic series of outdoor concerts at the Botanic Garden. (An optimistic prospect to think about after the winter weather inflicted on Wellington this week.) This event must be the launching pad for many careers.

What consultation? Dear Editor, We may excuse GWRC Councillor Donaldson for her lack of experience at this level of governance of Bus Transport but she cannot be excused for not consulting with Bus users. GWRC are determined to inflict a completely new Bus Service upon us and I can only comment on the Eastern Suburbs. To date we have no knowledge of whatever new timetables require any change to the ‘Hubs’ at Kilbirnie. What we hve at the moment works quite well subject to minor, inexpensive tweaks, principally the removal of a handful of car parks in Rongotai Road. There is much rumour that the Hubs are to facilitate new routes which will mean changing buses in Kilbirnie. This is nonsense as most passengers from the Peninsula will wish to travel at least to Newtown, Courtenay Place or the Railway. At no stage have we been

consulted about what we want or need. A so called consultation meeting was barely advertised and, of course poorly attended. To add insult to injury, Go Wellington and our loyal, dedicated Bus drivers are about to lose their contracts to an alternative, untested tenderer who, at this point has no buses and nowhere to park them, should they be able to acquire them. And if they do, they are unlikely to be Electric or Hybrid but second hand, deisel-beching monsters from Auckland! May I suggest that Cr Donaldson makes a name for herself and puts all the changes on hold until a viable non (or lesser) polluting bus fleet is available. The Trolley busses should be good for another couple of years, given that the Overhead wires heve only recently been upgraded. Tony Sutcliffe Strathmore Park

Outstanding colour and inspiration service from your local Guthrie Bowron

LETTERS to the editor (Cont. from page 8)

Showing support Dear Editor, With all the huha of Ms. Turei of NZ Green taking in a subtenant 24 yrs ago to feed and warm her offspring being twisted into requiring her to pay it back, I want to show my support. My support for an audit of W&I for the underpayment of entitlement benefits (and related staff bonuses). I have supplied information to the Minister of Welfare. Staff of W&I told me and involved beneficiaries to forget about the past and ‘get on with it’ several times, which the underpaid clients acquiesced to (for to them overpowering reasons not to upset W&I). There was no rescinding of past and ongoing automatic reductions for ‘return of overpayments’. Like the clamour

for Ms Turei’s arrears, these ‘arrears’ by W&I should be paid out with apologies. I want to show my support for this. If any staff were paid bonuses for reducing pay-outs to ‘get beneficiaries off the benefit’ during the proposed audit these bonuses will be identifiable to case workers- these bonuses should be repaid if they short-changed any beneficiaries. I want to show my support for this. Once this is done I’m sure a lady called Metiria will make some voluntary payments to W&I. I do not even want a check on Mr Joyce’s tax returns over the past 24 years Paul Franken Strathmore Park

Consultation a distraction from the real issues between a goal of lowering, even eliminating, carbon emissions and quickly doing away with the trolley buses which use low-carbon NZ electricity needs to be continually confronted. It is the Kapiti and Hutt suburbs who are pushing these plans. Wellington needs to wrest back control of transport plans for the city and the GWRC needs to consult Wellingtonians on these. Richard Keller Lyall Bay

CeriCollection Collectionfrom fromWarwick Warwick from Warwick Ceri

Dear Editor, John Lawes’ observation that the GWRC consultation options for bus stop relocation lacks detailed descriptions reinforces my notion that this consultation is intended mainly to be a distraction, leaving the most important decisions out of the consultation process. The main issues for transportation in Wellington concern the trolley buses and the long term plans for lowering carbon emissions. The ongoing obvious disconnect

Final consultation on cycleway to begin By Emma McAuliffe Years of debate surrounding the controversial Island Bay cycleway can soon come to an end with the final consultation on its future about to begin. Final consultation on the Island Bay Cycleway begins on Monday, July 31 and ends on Sunday, August 15. The Island Bay Residents’ Association will be hosting a public meeting on Monday, July 31 to give community members the chance to hear from the Wellington City Council and Tonkin and Taylor and have the opportunity to have their say. Four final designs for the cycleway will be presented and explained to the community at

the meeting. A Councillor Working Group initiated by community engagement officer Diane Calvert, and made up of local Councillors Paul Eagle and David Lee, as well as Councillor Sarah Free would explain its role and how the rest of the process will play out. Engineers Tonkin and Taylor will present to the community and City Planner David Chick would discuss when final implementation will take place. The community would then have the opportunity to ask questions and make submissions to the formal consultation. President of the Island Bay Resident’s Association, Vicki Greco, said consultation was

important because it would be the final chance for residents to have their say on the final design. “We are facilitating this meeting so that Island Bay residents have the chance to hear what the options are, hear from council and Tonkin and Taylor. “The key thing is this is the last chance for people to have their say. This is it.” Councillor in charge of the working group, Ms Calvert, said the group had been working hard to ensure the final consultation could be understood by all. “The council working group has been working to ensure we have a good final consultation and that everything is written in

a way that can be understood by everyone,” she said. “The last engagement with the community was around the different scenarios, this one has been distilled to four options.” Ms Calvert said council was still working to see whether the Pop Up Shop could be reopened for the consultation period, meanwhile residents could submit online or via hard copy. A final decision made by council on the cycleway was due on Thursday, September 14.  The Island Bay Residents’ Association hosted public meeting will take place on Monday, July 31 at the Baptist Church, 284 The Parade, from 7.30pm.

Musikgarten classes give children the gift of active music making Internationally renowned early childhood music educator Lorna Lutz Heyge, Ph.D. and Audrey Sillick, Montessori pioneer, created Musikgarten to provide the highest quality music education programmes possible for children and their families. Lorna has been developing music programmes for over 40 years, and her works are used by thousands of teachers in the United States, Canada, Western Europe and Asia. Her philosophy is based on the belief that every child has a musical talent and the birthright to learn to use it. She has stated: “While educational leaders turn to early childhood music because it promotes brain development, they will stay with music because of the joy and stimulation experienced in actual music making. Music learning requires total involvement; that is why it appeals so much to young children!” The preschool Musikgarten classes meet weekly for 30, 45

or 60 minutes, depending on the curriculum, using carricula especially designed for each age group. The Musikgarten experience is broad based and is not performance oriented. Our focus is not to make concert pianists or opera singers, but to help children learn to enjoy music. Musikgarten classes are fun, giving children the gift of active music making and holistic development.

Last of the knitting leaves Kilbirnie By Emma McAuliffe

Climbing a tower for cancer relief By Emma McAuliffe

Over 100 people climbed the Majestic Centre at the weekend to raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation. Members of the Wellington Police Armed Offenders Squad, Dive Squad, Dog Squad, Police Detectives, Fire Fighters, Ambulance Drivers, community teams and children climbed Wellington’s tallest building on Saturday in memory of constable Dean Gifford, who passed away from a brain tumour in 2012. Among them was Miramar’s 10-year-old Stephanie Hayes, an ambassador for the Child Cancer Foundation. Organiser Stephen Cross said the event was “amazing”, drawing 120 participants and raising $17,000 for the Child Cancer Foundation. Of that over $5000 was raised by Stephanie,

he said. “She was really someone to aspire to be like at the event. “On Friday she got treatment but she still walked up the stairs on the Saturday. It was awesome.” Stephen said the run was organised every year to remember Dean and to keep raising money for a “good cause”. “The first year we did a head shave and managed to raise $20,000 for the foundation. “That’s when I thought about doing Majestic Tower, to be more inclusive because not everyone wanted to shave their heads. There are 644 steps in the tower. “I just think it’s a great organisation to run for. “Everybody knows someone who’s suffered from cancer, and to see kids with it is so unfair,” he said.

After 10 years of donating generously to communities locally and abroad the Kilbirnie/ Lyall Bay Community Centre has donated the last of their woollen items. Community coordinator job share Beryl Smyth said the centre had asked people for wool between 2007 and 2017. “Knitters would take the wool away and create things for charities,” she said. “We’ve done things like Operation Cover Up and Missions Without Borders.” The last of their items were donated to Myanmar refugees last week. Beryl said the sustainable and positive effort had led to over 1500 items being created and donated over the decade. “We sent approximately 500 items to Moldova, Ukraine and Romania where temperatures can get to -25 degrees Celsius,

so the beanies would really benefit those areas,” she said. “We also donated to KidsCan and gave free beanies out to toddlers and children in the community. “It was important for us to give children something they could call their own, whether it be a blanket, a jersey or a singlet.” Beryl said she was very grateful to those who had knitted for the centre to be donated over the years. “None of the wool was bought; it would have been donated and then was made into sustainable things,” she said. “There’s a time for every season. “I think it’s wonderful work contributing to the world positively. “We’ve had 10 years of really productive times. “We need to acknowledge the contribution of knitters in the community.”

Cabaret kicks off fundraising to save heritage pipe organ

Jane Keller will perform next week. PHOTO: Supplied.

A Lyall Bay performer will be putting her pipes to work to help restore the only pipe organ of its kind in New Zealand. Jane Keller will kick off the fundraising to restore the heritage pipe organ at St Andrew’s on The Terrace with a concert next week. Jane would be performing highlights from her four one woman shows; Bigger is Better, Do I Have to Get Naked?, Boomers Behaving Badly and Yep Still Got It with Michael Nicholas Williams accompanying on piano and Peter Franklin on the organ. All proceeds from the show would go towards restoring the heritage organ at St Andrew’s which is the only one of its kind in New Zealand still in its original state. The restoration is expected to cost $450,000. St Andrew’s minister, Susan Jones, said the concert, called Let Us Entertain You, should be a good night out. “We’re having a bit of fun with it and telling people this is their chance to become organ donors,” she said. The St Andrew’s organ was built in 1962 by one of the leading New Zealand organ builders of the time, George Croft

and Sons. Organ consultant Roy Tankersley said it was the only Croft organ in New Zealand with floating mutations still in its original state. Floating mutations are a series of high pitched ranks of pipes which add brilliance and colour to music played on any section of the organ. The organ was built to match the fine acoustics at St Andrew’s. In its early days it was one of the most frequently broadcast organs on New Zealand radio. “Many Wellingtonians will have heard it played at recitals, concerts, weddings, funerals and Sunday gatherings,” Susan said. “It also provides an important backdrop to community music events and performances. ”Restoring the organ marks the final stage of returning St Andrew’s to its former glory and fulfilling the church’s potential as a leading music venue.”  Let Us Entertain You will take place on Friday, July 28 at 6.30pm. Tickets available from Eventfinda. Door sales are also available.

Ories and Rongotai to benefit from new gear “Our players are unable to practise the latest scrummaging and contact techniques because of the equipment’s lack of robustness.” Player safety is now a major focus from New Zealand Rugby Dave said. “Through their Rugby Smart programme, coaches and players are encouraged to take a responsible approach to all contact aspects of the game. “Upper body and especially the neck and head area are a key focus point in our coaching. “It will allow our coaches

to coach the details, using the specialised equipment that the British and Irish Lions used on their tour to New Zealand.” He said the school was grateful for the help of New Zealand Community Trust. “The grant is important as it will allow Rongotai College and the Oriental Rongotai Rugby Club to be able to prepare their players with good technical coaching. “It assists both parties to build upon their 50 year partnership providing excellent facilities and opportunities for members.”

Head coach at Rongotai College Dave Meaclem said the school currently had a lot of equipment in need of replacement. “Rugby has changed significantly [within the past 15 years] with a large emphasis on player safety and welfare,” he said. “We virtually no longer use our scrum machine for this reason, which disadvantages our players.

Rongotai College can now replace their rugby training equipment after more than 15 years thanks to a grant from New Zealand Community Trust and the British and Irish Lions. Equipment used by the Lions during their recent tour would now be stored at Rongotai College and be available to the school and the Oriental-Rongotai Rugby Club. Oriental-Rongotai Rugby Club has a history dating back half a century with Rongotai College. The club and school have worked together, sharing facil-

The Under 19 National Netball Championships took place in Kilbirnie last Thursday, bringing together 20 teams from around the country. Wellington came third in the tournament, beating Waitakere definitively 39 – 21 in the quarter finals.

Wellington won the tournament last year, however had a completely new set of girls on the courts in 2017 “doing themselves and Wellington Netball proud,” general manager of Wellington Netball Centre, Sue Geale said. “They’ve played so well.” Emma Lees, Grace McLean, Dani Tafili and Georgia White

made the national tournament team. Wellington coach Pelesa Semu said the tournament had been very rewarding. “We were the defending champions but this year it was a whole different team,” she said. “It’s been a great learning curve for me as well, as I wasn’t

the coach last year. “It’s been really, really good.” Pelesa said for a lot of the girls this would be their last year in age based representative teams. “They’ll be going back to club netball next year,” she said. The final was played between Hamilton City and Manawatu. Hamilton City won 36 – 31.

Mayweather, McGregor, Money and Mayhem If ever there was a better example of why boxing is failing to draw the eyeballs it once did, the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor circus has been all you need to see. Mayweather, a charismatic talker, yet boringly undefeated boxer will put his undefeated 49-0 record on the line against the biggest name in mixed martial arts, McGregor, who has an equally charming way with words but can also back it up in the octagon. The silver tongued, inked up fighter from Ireland will don

the bigger boxing gloves on August 26 in Las Vegas in a bout dubbed ‘The $180 Million Dance’. A title which has more truth to it the deeper you dig. The money value is the purse the two fighters will share and the dance is likely to be the reality with Mayweather having rather dull, defensive fights resembling more of a dance than a sporting contest. The duo has hurled insults at each other at a four-stop global press tour over the past week. Racial profiling and gay slurs

have all been part of it. McGregor even had the words ‘f___ you’ pin striped into a suit he was wearing. The pair has thrown plenty of insults towards each other but to me, it all looks a little forced. I don’t believe either of them hates each other. I know I couldn’t hate someone that I was making $180 million with. Quite frankly I fully expect the duo share a wink and a nod backstage after these press conferences. Kiwis can expect to pay north

of $50 for the fight, which is actually a fraction of what Americans will have to pay to view it but is there any value? That’s up to the individual - I’m on the fence about watching it. What happens once it’s over? Mayweather beats McGregor at Mayweather’s own sport or McGregor beats a semi-retired Mayweather and then goes back to MMA? Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather is in for another money grab and people are set to cough it up in bucket loads.

The sound of enchanting music echoed through Rita Angus in Kilbirnie on Sunday afternoon as residents and guests were treated to an afternoon listening to some of Wellington’s best young musical talent. The Dame Malvina Major Foundation Showcase was held in the retirement village’s atrium where guests were treated to pre-concert bubbles and refreshments. Opening the concert with a fiery start, soprano Alicia Cadwgan launched into the lively Let the Bright Seraphim, from Handel’s, Samson. Alicia has attended the New Zealand Opera School and is currently rehearsing for the part of Susanna, in Wanderlust Opera’s production of the Marriage of Figaro. Next year she plans to continue her vocal studies overseas. Ben Reason, a rising young star, fol-

lowed, with a piece from Mozart’s, The Magic Flute. Ben, a baritone, recently performed in the Freemason’s New Zealand Opera, Carmen, and has won a scholarship at the Guildhall School of Drama and Music in London, which he will take up in September. Village manager Rik Dixon said the “darlings” of the audience were soloists Iris Ma, 12, and Angelina Del Favero, 13, both from Queen Margaret College. Iris played piano and Angelina played the violin. “The residents and guests were delighted by the two youngest performers. “The response from the audience to the whole concert, was enthusiastic, especially for the well-known pieces such as the finale, Love Unspoken, from The Merry Widow,” Rik said.
