Parish spring gala back for 2017 Seatoun locals are encouraged to get on down to a spring celebration this weekend. The Peninsula Parish, made up of both St Aidan’s and St George’s churches, is holding its annual gala this Saturday. As in previous years, there will be face painting, cupcake decorating, bouncy castles, a Christmas stall, baking and white elephant (second hand goods for sale donated by residents). There will also be Ethiopian food on offer, along with a barbecue boasting the usual sausages and meat patties. If the weather is bad then afternoon tea will be provided inside. The Kilbirnie Fire Station would be on hand to give children the opportunity to take a close look at a fire engine. “The station officer from Kilbirnie is bringing his crew and the fire appliance. They will also carry out a fire safety presentation,” convenor Beverley Alexander says. “The kids just love it.” Priest-in-Charge Tim McKenzie says they tried to keep activities nice and affordable for the community. “It’s not about money it’s about showing everyone a good time,” he says. “It is kind of like a little window into another way of being – it’s like Downton Abbey.

KILBIRNIE OSTEOPATHS ON THE MOVE! After 17 years in Kilbirnie Cres, Kilbirnie Osteopaths, Catherine Gollan , Anya Schumacher and Alana Stevenson are excited to be expanding into bigger premises in Kilbirnie Plaza from Monday 30th October. Newly situated in the Plaza in the old medical centre, they will have twice as much space as in their current premises, which are getting rather crowded. Catherine moved her practice from Central Wellington in 2001, and was joined by Anya in 2008 and Alana in 2010. Their team will be joined by Caron Shallish, who will be closing her busy practice in Karori to join them. “The combined experience of our practitioners makes our practice very versatile” Anya said. “We love treating muscle and joint conditions all over the body, and we
can work with people from all ages – from babies to the elderly. As well as the more common back, neck and limb pain, we can also often help with pregnancy, newborn issues, headaches and jaw pain.” Every age has its particular challenges they explained, and diﬀerent treatment techniques reﬂect the need for variety in treatment approaches. “I feel very lucky that our team has such depth of skill, which gives us conﬁdence to help many people and many conditions. In addition, over the last 17 years we are pleased to have established a very good working relationship with most of the GP practices in the Eastern Suburbs and beyond, adding to the overall sense of conﬁdence people can have when visiting our clinic” Catherine added.
