Baby born as fires raged

Tiny Thea

arrives

after family

evacuates

• By Kurt Bayer

AS GOVERNORS Bay resident

Luke Thomas rushed his

heavily-pregnant wife Jessica to

hospital, leaping flames licked

the scrub and trees above their

harbour-side home.

In the midst of the raging

inferno enveloping the Port

Hills, which has claimed the life

of a decorated war hero, homes,

and hundreds of hectares, came

a new life.

Just hours after the Thomas

family evacuated from their

fire-threatened home, tiny baby

Thea made her arrival in the

world – a week early.

“It’s kind of typical. If it was

going to happen, it was going to

happen on the night the fire beat

down and people were evacuated,”

Luke said.

Expecting their first child, the

Thomas family had watched the

smoke from the fires billow over

the summit above their home

since last Monday night.

At about 11pm on Tuesday,

they checked the fires and decided

it was safe to go to bed.

As they drove away, the threat

became even clearer.

“It was crazy. As we drove

around the hill, you could see

this huge, glowing orange in the

night sky right behind our house.

It was pretty upsetting,” Luke

said.

They drove to a friend’s house

in Christchurch to drop the pets

off. A midwife met them there

who, after a quick check, told

them to get to Christchurch

Women’s Hospital immediately.

At 6.47am last Wednesday,

weighing 7lb 1oz, baby Thea was

born.

“Mum and baby are doing

great and the labour went perfectly.

It was very quick, especially

for a first birth,” Luke said.

“I’m sure it was sped up by the

situation of getting out.

“We will always remember the

day Thea was born.”

HATS OFF to all of the bay

firefighters involved in last week’s

savage Port Hills blaze.

They did a fantastic job against

extreme odds, and their magnificent

efforts almost certainly saved

many more properties from being

destroyed.

If the fire had not have been

stopped on top of the Port Hills

who knows what carnage it could

have caused if it was able to sweep

down into Governors Bay, Westmorland,

on the city side, and

beyond.

The flammable materials and

vehicles (with petrol) in residential

areas combined with tinder

dry vegetation would have turned

the blaze into an unimaginable

fire storm.

We cover their deeds on pages

4-5 today.

But the message from last

week’s fires is that we have to be

super careful for the rest of the

summer. – Barry Clarke

Sir Miles stayed put

AS FIRE spread down the hills

above his beloved historic Ohinetahi

homestead and gardens, Sir Miles

Warren wasn’t going anywhere.

About 107 residents on the other

side of Governors Bay, Teddington

Rd, were evacuated at 3am on

Wednesday.

That order hadn’t extended to

the homestead and gardens, but if

the call had come, Sir Miles said he

wouldn’t have heeded it.

If the house was to go down, he

would “go down with it,” he said.

“My plan was to either run to the

sea or jump in my pool.”

Yesterday morning he was in the

garden at the Ohinetahi homestead,

where the plants were coated in

falling ash from the fires burning

300-400m away. The homestead,

a category one heritage building,

was built in the 1860s and some

of the roses growing in the garden

were planted in the 1870s. Sir Miles,

a prominent architect, has lived

there for 41 years, having restored

the homestead and developed an

extensive award-winning garden.

He restored the house and

designed and created the gardens

with his sister, artist Pauline

Trengrove. He gifted the property

in 2012 to be kept in a trust for the

public.

“If this place was to burn, I would

just lose my life’s work,” he said.

Tuesday, it had looked like there was

just a small fire at the top of the hill,

but by the morning he estimated the

flames had moved to within 400m

of the property.

“I thought all was well, so I went

to bed and slept easy,” he said.

But when he woke, the fire had

reached his neighbour’s sheds and

he could see smoke rising through

the trees.

“It’s just quite spooky to see the

smoke rising up around my property.”

Sir Miles wanted to thank firefighters

and helicopter pilots for

their efforts.

BAY HARBOUR firefighters are

being praised after a hard week.

Brigades from across the district

helped to fight the Port Hills

blaze last week which scorched

2075ha, destroyed nine houses

and damaged two more.

Governors Bay Volunteer Fire

Brigade chief fire officer Andrew

Norris said he had nothing but

respect for all the firefighters

who worked tirelessly over the

past week.

He said the firefighters had

demanding days and nights, rotating

on six to eight-hour shifts.

He said he was incredibly

proud of the firefighters.

“The guys went above and beyond

of what was asked of them.”

Mr Norris said the firefighters

were to be praised as most were

operating on a few hour’s sleep.

He said it was one of the most

intense weeks of his firefighting

career and hopes it will be some

time before he experiences anything

like it again.

He said the dedication by the

firefighters was incredible with

most taking time off from their

day jobs to fight the fire.

Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade

chief fire officer Mark Buckley

was just as proud of his team

who were always ready to help.

He said his firefighters were

rotated on five-hour shifts and

were “keen as mustard” when

their shift was next on.

Mr Buckley said he had to

make sure his firefighters were

not wearing themselves out and

had to force some of them to

have a rest.

“They were often disappointed

if they had not been assigned for

the next shift as they wanted to

get out and fight the fire.

“I would scratch my head

and wonder where they got the

energy from,” he said.

Mr Buckley also wanted to

celebrate the effort from the

community and local businesses

who donated an abundance of

food and drink.

“When you are busy fighting

the fire you don’t have time to

think about getting food and water

for the firefighters so we were

really glad the community were

helping us on that front.”

He said every firefighter in Bay

Harbour deserved praise as they

all came together and worked

well with each other.

Future unknown for skate ramp

• By Noah Graham

IT COULD be months before

Sumner has another skate ramp.

Sumner Green and Skate

Group member Kimberly

Mossman is disappointed no

timeframe has been given for the

return of the skate ramp which

was located at 26 Nayland St.

The skate ramp was closed

on February 10 when the city

council ran noise tests and found

it failed to comply with city plan

noise standards.

Mrs Mossman said although

they received support from

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board, it was likely

to take months to settle on a

long-term place for the skate

ramp and ensure it is properly

soundproofed.

She said it would be great to

have the skate ramp up and

running as soon as possible so

the community can use it. But

she is also focused on finding a

permanent site for a fully-fledged

skatepark and grass area.

Mrs Mossman said the group

will continue to vie for the

skate ramp’s previous site at 26

Nayland St, which she hoped

will be the permanent location.

She said the community needs

the skate ramp, particularly

teenagers and children, who

need something stable they can

use.

Community board member

Sara Templeton said it had

agreed to find a longer-term site

for the temporary ramp and

understand Mrs Mossman’s

need for a dedicated skatepark

site.

“The ramp has been

an amazing asset for the

community, but is only

temporary, so I’m also keen

to start discussions about a

permanent skatepark for the

area.

“It’s been a need for many

years and if we’re serious about

valuing our youth, then we

should provide facilities for

them and involve them in the

process,” she said.

CLOSED: It could be months until Sumner has another skate

ramp.

Countdown to Selwyn’s big music day out

• By Tom Doudney

THE LINCOLN Domain is

about to be transformed from

a sleepy sports and recreation

ground to a music showpiece.

With Selwyn’s biggest ever

music festival just around the

corner on March 4, preparation

will begin on Monday, almost a

week before the first band takes

the stage.

The show features big name

Kiwi acts, including Mi-Sex,

Dragon, The Jordan Luck Band,

Annie Crummer, Margaret

Urlich, Debbie Harwood, Sharon

O’Neill and Jason Kerrison, as

well as many other artists.

Promoter David Parlane said

bringing everything together for

the day was a bit like organising

an army.

“You’ve got to get everybody in

at the right time and in the right

spot.”

The first trucks will roll in on

Monday, putting the 20m by 15m

wide stage in place, with more

work on fully assembling it and

putting up the marquees to take

place over the next two days.

About 1km of fencing, 70

portaloos, 24 urinals and four

6.1m beverage chillers will also

be installed at the ground during

the week.

There will be 28 food vendors,

more than 125 festival staff and

of course 62 artists on stage.

“We hope to be in concertprepared

mode by about 8am on

the Friday morning so if there is

anything that needs to be fixed

we have got all day to figure it

out,” Mr Parlane said.

The first big name artist

expected to arrive in Lincoln

will be Kerrison on March 2,

with most of the others getting

in on March 3. The ground has

capacity for 10,000 people. Mr

Parlane said ticket sales had been

strong but there were still some

available from Ticketek. While

special bus passes between

Christchurch and the show were

almost sold out, there is a plan

to increase the number of public

buses on the day.

Our People

Donna Henderson

Champion surfer, mother and

Taylors Mistake resident

Donna Henderson is

back riding the Sumner

swells after winning gold

at the over 30s national

surfing championships.

Noah Graham spoke to

her about success and

family

What was it like winning the

national surfing championship?

It was good. I was a last

minute entry. I basically went

to Auckland to support my

daughter and my stepdaughter.

I told them that if they entered

the nationals, I would too. I

was entered in the longboard

and got through my semi, got

through to the final and I was

all geared up for that. I’d done

about two weeks of training and

then the judges and the officials

asked if I would enter the senior

women’s over 30s. I said no, I’m

actually saving my energy for

the longboard final. They pretty

much talked me in to it. I hadn’t

been riding my shortboard for

probably a couple of months.

I borrowed a board, I had 30

minutes to prepare. I paddled

out and ended up getting a really

good wave first up and I ended

up winning. It was a bit of a

surprise.

Why did they ask you to

compete in the over 30s?

Usually in the women’s senior

division, there isn’t a lot of us

who turn up to the competition.

There’s a lot of women and older

women in the country who surf,

but there’s not very many who

compete. What region they hold

the nationals in always depends

on how many competitions they

have. I hadn’t entered purely

on the fact I was entering on a

longboard and I’ve only got so

much energy. I made it to the

final and lo and behold they

were waving the Canterbury flag

and I ended up winning. First

national title at 42 is pretty good.

How different is it on a

longboard compared to a

shortboard?

It is quite different. The

longboard they judge you on old

school and new school moves

like walking the board and

nose-riding, as well throwing

the board around. It’s a selection

of different moves in the critical

part of the waves, so the more

risky you go, the more moves

you try to do on the wave, the

more points you get. I ended up

getting fourth on the longboard

and I had a pretty abysmal final

to be fair. The other women

surfed really well, they were all

less than half my age though.

I was certainly the oldest in

the longboard final. But the

shortboard competition, it’s a

totally different kettle of fish.

You’ve got to paddle a bit harder,

they’re thinner, shorter, less

volume. So you can actually do

a lot more on the waves on a

shortboard than on a longboard.

How long had it been

since you used your

shortboard?

I probably hadn’t surfed on

my shortboard in a couple of

months. I’d been really busy at

surf school. When I got through

to the finals it was fantastic.

What did winning mean to

you?

Showing young girls who

are too scared to compete what

can be done – there’s a real fear

around competition and making

a fool of yourself in front of

people.

LINCOLN’S FINEST SUBDIVISION

Live in Lincoln

nine bands. one day. www.selwynsounds.co.nz

But at the end of the day, if

a 42-year-old woman from

Christchurch can go and enter

the nationals at the last minute

and win it, then it is really good,

positive stuff for all the young

people. Just give it a go because

you never know what can

happen.

How did you start your career

as a surf coach and what made

you want to do it?

I’ve always surfed since my

early 20s. Since I was about 24 or

25, I started surfing at Sumner

on a longboard and then I progressively

got better and started

riding smaller boards. Surfing

is just really good for the mind,

body and soul. It’s just a really

good all-round experience. I was

working within the surf industry

as a sales agent, so I did that

for many years and facilitated

the Roxy surf gyms where, for

four years at Sumner beach, we

taught probably hundreds, if

not thousands, of girls to surf.

From there, I ended up having

children and my kids started getting

into surfing. A lot of parents

were asking at school if I would

teach them how to surf. I gave

it some thought and went and

did the training and the courses

and decided that starting a surf

school in Sumner would be a

great idea. There seemed to be

plenty of room to concentrate on

teaching women and little kids

how to surf. So that was my target

market. We do one-on-one

surfing with women, or we do

small groups of women so they

can feel really empowered to

give it a go. You over come a lot

of fears if you’re trying surfing,

you’ve got to get into this tight

wetsuit for a start, so there’s all

of those body-conscious issues. It

is quite hard to paddle the board

and manoeuvre the board and

stand up on the board and ride

the wave, but once you’ve ridden

the wave it’s a really good buzz.

That’s pretty much what we’re

selling. We get a lot of clients

who are my age or older. They’ve

always wanted to give surfing

a go. We have a lot of groups of

mums and wives. We don’t just

see people once – they usually

come back for a six to 10-week

programme.

Could you ever live anywhere

that wasn’t close to the sea?

No. I couldn’t. I love the

mountains, but I always feel after

a few days, I need to get back to

the ocean.

Could you tell me a bit about

your family?

LIFE: Donna Henderson spends most of her day riding the

local waves or teaching others how to master them.

I’ve got three children. Ava is

11, Travis is seven, and George

is nine. All my kids surf. They

all do a surf lesson in my school

once a week. That’s pretty cool.

Ava is competing at a national

level, which is great. She’s part of

a gang of Sumner girls; we call

them grommets. It’s a term used

for younger surfers. So there’s a

really good gang of young surfers

from eight to 15 in Sumner. A lot

of them free surf. They surf after

school, before school and during

the weekends. That’s pretty

much how she’s got as good as

she has. George is our tech guy

at home. He’s a great little surfer

as well. He’s into music and art.

George is a normal nine year-old

kid. Travis, the seven-year-old,

is right into his surfing. He’s just

got a pointy board for Christmas.

They’re all just surfing out

at Sumner beach and at Taylors

and having a great time.

Is there anything other than

surfing you like to do?

I love snowboarding in the

winter. My other hobby is my

magazine called Curl mag, which

is a women’s surfing magazine.

We publish that quarterly. It’s

just a women’s lifestyle magazine

that empowers girls to get out

there and give surfing a go. We

have a lot of travel stories and

stories about women riding big

waves and having fun at the

beach. That’s pretty much what

I do in winter. It’s a big project. I

do a little bit of work constantly.

It’s a good magazine and a nice

read for teenage kids to get them

out of the malls and get them

into the water. It’s a bit of a girls

can do anything type of mag.

It’s a lot of work but it is a lot of

fun. Once it gets printed and

the finished product comes out,

we all breathe. There’s so much

happening in the world with

women’s surfing and our athletes

are getting better and better.

At the Heart of Our Community

Market Comment with Craig Prier

Have you seen our billboard? It’s positioned

in Ferrymead and to be honest, we’re quite

proud of it. For a long time now we have

been involved in local sponsorship and

events throughout the Bay Harbour area,

particularly Ferrymead to Sumner as

well as Lyttelton and Bays. It just

makes sense to give back to the

community we primarily operate in.

Why do we auction onsite?

Ross Cooper

027 432 4438

What better way to get a gauge of the market than an

onsite auction. As an auction-focused company we

conduct a lot of them onsite. It just makes sense to us

for a buyer to actually see what they are bidding for, who

their potential competition may be, as well as knowing that

the property on offer is not part of another 10 properties

being put up one after the other. Don’t get me wrong,

there are certainly occasions when a property auction is

better suited to an offsite location. Perhaps the property

is tenanted, or access may be difficult, but on the whole,

most of our auctions are onsite. From your point of view,

an onsite auction gives you the chance to really get a feel

for the market and may even help you determine the value

of your property or if selling by auction is the right method

of sale for you. As a buyer, by going to other auctions

you can also pick up great tips on bidding strategies and

will help with your confidence if perhaps you have an

opportunity to bid for a property in the future.

Selwyn Sounds

Hear tracks from new Mi-Sex album live

• By Tom Doudney

IF KIWI rock heavyweights

Mi-Sex needed any validation

for their decision to record their

first new album in 33 years, the

live crowds’ reaction gave it to

them.

The band’s fith album Not

From Here was released in September

with vocalist Steve Balbi

replacing original singer Steve

Gilpin, who died in 1991.

Mi-Sex will co-headline the

Selwyn Sounds concert in Lincoln

on March 4 with Dragon.

Other big acts will include The

Jordan Luck Band, Annie Crummer,

Margaret Urlich, Debbie

Harwood, Sharon O’Neill and

Jason Kerrison.

Keyboardist Murray Burns

said the band had been playing a

mix of old and new material on

their recent North Island tour

with The Feelers and Dragon.

“You could tell that some of

the younger members of the

crowd knew a few of our songs

like Computer Games and Blue

Day but they didn’t really know

the other ones,” Burns said.

“What was very rewarding

for us was that an audience that

weren’t really familiar with our

old and new material responded

in some ways stronger to our

newer stuff than our older stuff.

That made the whole experience

of recording new songs feel really

worthwhile to us.”

Ater so long without writing

music together, Burns found

working on new material to be

surprisingly easy.

“To jump in a room with

someone you have never written

a song with, with Steve Balbi,

was an amazing experience. Steve

is a fantastic songwriter and

lyricist and the basic embryos of

those songs came together in a

matter of minutes.”

Burns said the band had been

having a great time since they

started touring again in 2011.

“We are treating Mi-Sex more

as an experience again ater 30

years of not playing,” he said.

“We are not feeling that we are

going to go out and conquer the

world, we are not 21-years-old

any more, but we are having a

really good time playing and we

also had a really good time making

this record.”

When they’re not touring, the

band members live far apart – in

Christchurch, Auckland, Sydney

and, in Burns’ case, Byron Bay,

New South Wales.

“We decide on set lists and

things like that when we meet at

airports quite oten,” he said.

Burns produces music for

young bands from his own studio

but aside from that, doesn’t

listen to much new music.

“I live in the countryside and I

quite enjoy just the empty space

because music is a big part of my

life. I will be in the studio today

mixing for five or six hours and

when I come out of the studio

I mostly drive around with the

windows down and don’t listen

to much music,” he said.

“I listen to the birds in the

trees, actually, and the wind.”

THEY’RE BACK:

Mi-Sex are

touring again

after putting out

their first new

album in 33

years. The band

say recording

material with

new singer Steve

Balbi (below, far

left), was an easy

process.

•Selwyn Sounds will

be held on March 4,

from 11.30am-8.30pm. Tickets

can be purchased via

Ticketek and buyers will be

able to pre-purchase a return

bus ride between pickup

points in Christchurch

SCHOOLS

TALENT: Our Lady Star of the Sea pupils (from left) Nico

Heather, Nate Lilley, Molly Walker and Katie Hygate are

showing off their creative side which will be built on this year

with the new arts and drama programme.

Bid to get children

into arts and drama

• By Noah Graham

OUR LADY Star of the Sea

School is encouraging its pupils

to get more involved in the arts

and drama by having two sessions

each week dedicated to them.

Principal John Kane said the

school-wide initiative will ensure

all pupils will have more time to

stretch their creative side.

Mr Kane said the pupils will

have the opportunity to participate

in dance and song writing

classes as well as learn to play

instruments, act and showcase

their creative side.

He said the lessons will

happen during school hours with

speciality teachers to provide

the pupils with a more diverse

curriculum.

The school should dedicate

time to the arts because a lot of

the pupils were learning to dance

or play an instrument outside of

school, Mr Kane said.

“If they are learning about the

arts anyway, we might as well

have it as a focus for the school.”

Mr Kane said teachers and parents

he had spoken to completely

supported their new shift.

DIAMOND HARBOUR School

pupils are preparing a feast for

the community this weekend, all

from locally-sourced food.

The first ever Harbour Grown

Dinner will be made by year 6, 7

and 8 pupils, who will cut, mix

and cook for more than 60 residents

at the Diamond Harbour

Rugby Club on Saturday night.

Diamond Harbour School

kitchen specialist and organiser

Maria Lee has worked with the

students to design the menu for

the night.

She said the idea was simple

and inspired by the Lyttelton

restaurant, Roots.

Those who wanted to be

involved had to hand in 500g of

produce they had sourced locally,

along with a donation, she said.

The pupils will create the menu

this week and start preparing the

food for Saturday night.

Ms Lee said on the day she

will have a team preparing for

the evening and then another

team will come in to cook, serve

and wait on the guests.

The dinner was designed so

pupils could be responsible and

Ms Lee said.

“This is tapping into the

things the kids are interested in

themselves and then they bring it

together for everyone that wants

to be involved.”

The money received from the

dinner will be invested in

the school’s Te Mahi Kai programme

which teaches pupils a

range of gardening and cooking

skills.

She said the pupils are

looking forward to the day

and have enjoyed preparing for

it.

National List

MP Nuk Korako

talks about

the impact the

Port Hills blaze

has had on the

community

Last Monday,

when writing the article for this

column, I was planning to talk

about National’s Safer Communities

package, and the boost

to police numbers. Around the

same time, I heard that fire crews

had been called out to scrub fires

in the Port Hills. Like many Port

Hills residents, I had very little

idea what was to unfold over the

next few days.

I was grateful to be given leave

from most of my responsibilities

in Wellington, and spent my time

in the community, including at

the Governors Bay fire station,

the Rural Fire Command Centre

in Rolleston, and the welfare

centre at Te Hapua in Halswell. I

was pleased to be able to help out

where I could, particularly as a

point of contact for people who

didn’t know where to turn for

help or information.

As I write this on Monday

afternoon, the fire is contained,

with fire crews and pilots involved

in ongoing work to monitor

the area.

The fire covered 2075ha and

a significant number of properties

are affected, including 14

properties where homes or other

structures have been damaged or

destroyed.

Our thoughts are with those

families who will be facing the

reality of finding new homes,

replacing everything that was lost

in the fires, and getting life back

to normal.

Family, colleagues and friends

of Steve Askin are mourning

his loss. I trust that they will

find some comfort in the service

that Mr Askin gave his country

and his city, as an SAS soldier

decorated for his gallantry, and

as a pilot who spent many hours

protecting his community by

fighting fires.

I continue to ensure that

those affected have the help and

support they need. Then my

focus will turn to ensuring we

have answers to the questions

I am receiving from Port Hills

residents. I will be closely

watching the Government’s

review of our Civil Defence

response, which happens after

every significant event.

This has been an awful week for

our community and our hearts

go out to all affected by the fires.

I congratulate our brave crews

both on the ground and in the air

for their tireless work in getting

the fires under control and assisting

residents.

Drumming up culture

• By Noah Graham

THE LITTLE River community

will feel the pounding of drums

and rhythms to dance to this

weekend.

The sixth annual Drum

Festival will feature a variety

of performances from different

cultures at the Little River

Campground on Saturday and

Sunday.

Cultural drum groups from

Africa, Asia, the Middle East

and South America will all be

performing at the two-day event

with dance workshops and a

concert from Grammy award

winner Chris Berry.

Drum Festival organiser

Marcus Puentener said the event

is a great family-friendly event

for all to enjoy.

He said there was something

about the festival with

performances being played

underneath two walnut trees and

next to the Okuti River.

“It is nice and very relaxing to

come to.”

Mr Puentener said there

was a chance for those at the

workshops to have a go and try

performing themselves, which

everyone enjoyed.

However, he said people need

to prepare for varying weather

conditions.

Whiteside aims to keep

his lead in surf series

• By Noah Graham

REDCLIFFS SURFER Harrison

Whiteside is hoping to hold on to

top spot in the Billabong Grom

Series this weekend.

Whiteside, 19, will compete in

the second round of the series at

Piha on Saturday and Sunday.

The Canterbury University

student secured the lead in the

series when he bounced back

from a tough start in Whangamata

earlier this month.

Whiteside had a bad start in

the first round of the series as he

struggled to ride the right wave.

However, he persevered and

found the perfect wave and

managed to capitalise on it to

perform an air reverse that

secured him 9.17 points to bring

him up to the series-leading total

of 14.47.

“It feels pretty good . . . I was

just trying to find an air section

toward the end of the heat because

I knew I needed a big score

to win,” Whiteside said.

Whiteside said in each heat the

surfers have the option to ride

12 waves and take their two best

scores from the surf.

In spite of his rough start, the

conditions were similar to those

he surfs in Christchurch, which

was good, as he has been surfing

them for almost nine years.

IN STYLE: Harrison Whiteside, 19, enjoyed the waves in

Whangamata in the first round of the Billabong Grom Series.

Whiteside said he faces tough

opponents in the series and it

will be no easy feat to retain his

spot in the next round. But he is

looking forward to the challenge.

Whiteside is only two points

ahead of Taranaki surfer Daniel

Furr, who is on his tail heading

into the second round.

If he can continue the momentum,

Whiteside will be aiming

to keep his lead for the final title

surf in Mt Maunganui on March

11 and 12.

GREAT BOWLING followed

by an aggressive knock gave

Sumner captain Dan Vann his

best day in club cricket yet.

Vann ripped through Lancaster

Park’s batting order at St

Leonards Park with his in swingers

to bag himself five for 47 off

15.2 overs.

The Sumner senior A side took

advantage of a green pitch and

overcast conditions to dominate

Lancaster Park in the first day

of their two-day match on Saturday.

Vann said he just hit the right

line and length on the grassy

pitch and was backed up well by

the other bowlers. He then took

the attack to the bowlers scoring

111 off 74 deliveries.

At the end of the first day,

Lancaster Park trailed by 118

runs with nine wickets left in

their second innings. However,

the second day was postponed

until next Saturday due to bad

weather.

Sumner won the toss and

chose to bowl first on the St

Leonard’s pitch and dismissed

Lancaster Park for 140 in the

49th over. Vann was supported

well by Jonathan Percasky who

claimed an economical three

wickets for 15 runs off 10 overs.

Vann, who is Sumner’s captain,

followed his five wickets

up with a quick century to put

Sumner in charge, declaring on

268/8. Chris Wilson was the only

other Sumner batsman to show

form as he hit 53 from 47 balls.

Sumner had 20 minutes on the

clock to bowl against the Lancaster

Park openers and Johnny

Beverage came through as he

picked up the wicket of Eddie

Templeton in the fourth over.

Lancaster Park ended the day

on 10 runs for one wicket, trailing

by 118 runs.

Theatre/Arts

New style of show business

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SOPHIE PETERSEN and

Keeneth Love have spotted a gap

in the city’s arts’ market to create

smaller – but “game-changing”

– theatre.

Willing to take a risk, the two

artists have set up their own

theatre company in a bid to bring

more diversity to the industry.

Having just graduated from

the National Academy of Singing

and Dramatic Art, the artists

want to prove that smaller scale

productions are financially viable

in Christchurch.

“We feel the city is the right

place . . . we just want to find a

space where we can not only create

work that is unique, but also

create work for actors as well,”

Love, 27, said.

The pair have set up So Keen

Productions to bring theatre

to the city in a sustainable way

through small-cast productions.

They both wanted to set up

their own company, and the

idea for the new enterprise was

formed at the end of last year

when the two realised they had

the same mindset.

“We spoke the same language

almost all the time and then,

NEW EDGE: Keeneth Love and Sophie Petersen are the faces behind a new theatre company

aiming to bring more diversity to the city.

PHOTO: CHELSEA SHEEHAN-GAIGER ​

over the new year, we suddenly

realised there was no point in

us doing different things,” Love

said.

Petersen, 21, who lives in

Sumner, said for a start the

company will stage musical

theatre and plays, run education

programmes for primary-aged

children and workshops for

aspiring performers.

But the pair want to keep their

programme broad and may

branch out into different mediums

such as film.

“We are trying to stay away

from the mainstream shows that

would generally be shown at bigger

theatre companies,” Petersen

said.

While she loved productions

from the city’s larger companies,

such as Showbiz Christchurch

and The Court Theatre, she

hopes their organisation will

bring a “new kind of edge” to

theatre.

And already they have announced

one of their first shows

for the year, which is set to be an

intimate play staged at whisky

and cocktail lounge, The Last

Word, on New Regent St.

First Love by American

playwright Charles Mee is a twoperson

play exploring the themes

of love, obsession, violence and

relationships.

“It is immersive in the sense

you are in the room with them,

you are experiencing their

relationship . . . it is a lot more

intimate than a lot of theatre I

think Christchurch is used to,”

Petersen said.

The duo have teamed up with

NASDA head of acting Soseh

Yekanians who has previously

said musical theatre in the city

is conservative, out of date and

unadventurous.

As well as directing First Love,

Yekanians will run a workshop

with So Keen Productions on

audition techniques and acting

for the camera.

•The pair expect to

announce more upcoming

shows at the end of March.

FERRYMEAD

A Tragic Kind Of Wonderful

by Eric Lindstrom

The heart-rending and inspiring novel from the critically

acclaimed author of NOT IF I SEE YOU FIRST. How can you

have a future if you can’t accept your past? Mel Hannigan

doesn’t have it easy. Mourning the death of her firework

of a brother, facing the loss of three friendships that used

to mean everything to her and struggling to deal with a

condition that even her closest friends don’t know about.

To protect herself and everyone else, Mel tries to lock away

her heart, to live quietly without pain – but also without hope. Until

the plight of an old friend, and meeting someone new, shows her that the risk is

worth taking, that opening up to life – and who you really are – is what can make

everything glorious… And that maybe Mel can discover a tragic kind of wonderful

of her very own. A beautiful, captivating story about living with mental illness,

and loving – even with a broken heart.

A shop that makes a difference

It’s a rare opportunity that allows us

to make a difference in the world when

we go shopping. Thanks to Epic Books

in Ferrymead, it’s now possible to help

persecuted people just by making a

purchase.

The shop is celebrating a move to new

premises and can now be found on the

corner of Ferry Road and Waterman Place,

but customers are guaranteed the same

great range. Its shelves are packed with

items such as clothing and jewellery, music

CDs from around the world, charming

gifts for all occasions from Christenings

to birthdays and to suit all budgets, and, of

course, plenty of books. Topics range from

church history to children’s books, and

from adult colouring books to bibles. The

profit from every bible bought goes directly

to buying a bible for a persecuted Christian

somewhere in the worldand they have a

wide variety including bibles in Maori,

Tongan, Samoan, Russian, Korean, Chinese

and Inuit.

With Easter just around the corner,

children’s books telling the Easter story

begin at only $4.50, ideal for helping

children understand the meaning behind

the holiday.

The Epic Books team is very much part

of the local community – they would love

to hear from Christian artists keen to

showcase and sell their work through the

store. And if they don’t have a book by a

New Zealand author, they will contact the

writer direct and find a copy if possible.

All proceeds from Epic Books’ sales goes

to Voice of the Martyrs. The charity works

in communities such as North Korea, the

Middle East, Africa, China and Central

Asia giving not just a voice but practical

support to Christians who are imprisoned,

killed or tortured simply for following their

beliefs.

To celebrate their new location, Epic

Books is having a month-long sale. Call

into 1 Waterman Place anytime during

March to see what bargains are on offer.

Open from Mondays to Fridays, you can

also shop online at any time at epicbooks.

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in

Sydenham sees clients with a

range of symptoms but many

of their middle-aged and senior

clients visit complaining of pain in one or

both hips.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back

muscle could also be the cause, as shown in

the image.

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old

client with severe arthritis who walked with

a stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair,

I cannot put any weight through my right

leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”.

“Within 4 treatments, she was walking with

her stick but without the severe pain,” says

Ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors

that made her muscles spasm but the other

was that older people move less and the

flexed position the hip is in when we sit is

particularly bad for the hip.” Ietje is happy

with the fact that although the client was 89

and could have been “given up on” or told

to live with the pain, she made a difference

to her health and wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise program

designed to mobilize and stretch the hip,

strengthen the important core muscles and

increase general strength and balance. They

teach a movement sequence that stretches

the hip in all directions whilst the client is

able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for

older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. There is
