Anger over lack of bus service

ANDREW KING

Bishopdale residents are angry

that no changes will be made

to bus routes after a recent

study showed the area was well

served by public transport.

Bus routes throughout the city

were revamped by Environment

Canterbury in 2014 due to

falling numbers on certain

routes.

ECan met with the

Bishopdale Community Trust

and residents to address their

concerns that the area does not

have an adequate bus service.

ECan said a report from

Abley Transportation

Consultants found the

Bishopdale community is wellserved

by public transport, with

no immediate need for change.

But trust community

development worker Tania

Smith said residents need a

direct route in to town from

Bishopdale.

“They need to get into town

and Papanui, as most of the

health care services for people

in Bishopdale are in those

areas,” she said.

She said the community had

been lobbying for the Orbiter to

come to the area for “about 20

years.”

TRANSPORT WOES: Bishopdale Communtiy Trust development worker Tania Smith (left), with Julie

Omand, Tracey Neithe, Maggie Manley (front) and Josie Venus, says residents need a direct bus into the

city rather than having to transfer from bus to bus.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

However, ECan said it would

cost between $301,950 to

$312,750 per year to re-route

the Orbiter, taking into account

estimated fare revenue from

additional passengers.

ECan commissioner Rex

Williams said it was important

to get regular feedback from

the community to ensure it runs

the best service possible for

customers.

“Because we received a lot of

negative feedback after making

changes in Bishopdale, we

asked Abley to do a review of

the bus routes in this area. As

a result of this investigation,

no immediate changes will be

made to the Bishopdale bus

services in the short-term,” he

said.

He said the area may be

looked at again as part of a

wider review of the network

starting later this year.

Bishopdale resident Fiona

Simons said they understood

the old route would not be

re-established, but a direct line

into the city was needed.

“They are nice enough

people [ECan] but they looked

like they had made up their

minds before the meeting,” she

said.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Should

Bishopdale have a bus that

travels directly into the city?

TRAFFIC MONITORING

The Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board have asked

city council traffic engineering

staff to monitor traffic and

pedestrian use of the Harewood,

Breens and Gardiners Rds

intersection. Monitoring is

needed to verify whether

there are any continuing

pedestrian safety issues. Recent

submissions from residents and

a nearby school has indicated

that monitoring is needed.

CENTRE ON TRACK

The tender for the Bishopdale

Community Centre and

Library is currently out for its

construction. The approved

design for the new facility

shows a combined library and

community hall joined by an

atrium. The library includes a

330 sq m collection space and

can also open out to a deck. The

adjacent meeting spaces can be

booked by community groups,

and will also be available after

hours when the library is closed.

ROAD CLOSED

Dover St in St Albans will

be closed for three days from

tomorrow while a wastewater

main is being repaired. The

closure will be between number

33 Dover St and Radnor St.

Between 6pm and 7am the work

one-way southbound traffic can

be maintained.

Speed limits near schools

Shirley-

Papanui

Community

Board

member

Emma

Norrish says

that the

speed limit

should be reduced around

schools to 40km/h. What are

you views? Email andrew.

king@starmedia.kiwi

Extensive research has

shown that a pedestrian hit by

a car travelling at 40km/h or

less will have a significantly

reduced level of injury

compared with 50km/h.

The question then needs

to be asked – why is there

not a blanket 40km/h speed

restriction covering all schools

across New Zealand?

We’ve all seen the flashing

signs outside various schools

around Christchurch indicating

that a school zone exists, and

requiring us to reduce our

speed to 40km/h as we pass.

These signs were first

installed on a trial basis in

Christchurch in 2000, and

research showed that they were

SOAP

BOX

effective in bringing down the

speed of motorists.

Since then, all schools in the

city have been put on a priority

list for the installation of such

signs, and the city council is

working through the list and

installing a few each year – at

a cost ranging from $40,000-

$75,000 per school.

The city council’s long

term plan 2015-2025 has

$1,546,000 budgeted for the

installation of these school

speed zone signs over the

course of 10 years.

In discussions over one of

these school zones at a Shirley-

Papanui Community Board

meeting last month, I brought

up the question of whether this

could be something that be

legislated on at a national

level – with a nationwide

speed limit of 40km/h around

all schools.

This would make the roads

around all of our schools

safer, instead of just selected

areas, and it would save local

authorities the burden of

having to fund the required

signage.

The fact that it would

be nationwide would also

remove any possible confusion

between different schools and

different regions.

Our board has requested that

the city council submit this

proposal to central government

in order to raise awareness and

instigate a change for all of our

communities’ safety.

Be careful with heating

in the cold weather

MARK THOMAS – FIRE RISK

MANAGEMENT OFFICER

It seems to have taken forever

but this week I finally left for

work with ice on the truck

windscreen.

We’re only a fortnight from

winter proper and from here

on I’d expect the climate will

reflect that.

This means all those things

that colder weather bring us can

be expected to happen. Things

like seeing walls or wood sheds

burnt down because someone

has taken the ash out in the

wrong type of container and left

it in the wrong place.

Things like electric blankets

left on too long with weight

on them setting beds on fire.

Things like the placing of stuff

that can burn too close to a

heater or fire. It’s time to be just

a bit more careful.

This week’s weather included

the very high winds that struck

on Monday night.

The Fire Service were turned

were turned out to three separate

trees over within an hour.

The city crew was sent to an

empty fire damaged house that

threatened to lose the roof and

a whole two-storey wall. It was

busy for an hour or two.

The church in Bishopdale

that was set alight last Sunday

morning is a pretty sad commentary

on the modern world.

Once churches were places

anyone could go for sanctuary.

Now they need locked doors and

security. Not a great reflection

on progress is it?

Youth offenders to benefit

from bicycle repair project

Prisoners may be given a bicycle

on their release, thanks to a new

youth offender project.

A repair workshop has been

set up in a disused shed at

Christchurch Men’s Prison,

which has youth offenders

repairing old bicycles.

Once they are ready they are

given to released prisoners who

may be in need of the most basic

means of transport in their early

days of release.

The idea came from Youth

Unit staff who have been

coming up with innovative ideas

to provide the youth prisoners

with activities.

Principal Corrections Officer

Gary Smallridge said the focus

of the project is to identify

ways to keep youth engaged in

education and learning.

“We aim to provide activities

that not only occupy the young

prisoner’s time but also add to

their learning, with tasks that a

typical young person would be

interested in,” he said.

The project is proving to be

a hit with the youth offenders,

Elizabeth Challies

Puzzle expert in the zone

Bishopdale resident Elizabeth Challies, 34, was recently crowned the

2016 New Zealand open vaki puzzle and sudoku champion. She bounced

back from narrowly losing last year by seven points to register a record

score of 14,195. She speaks to Andrew King

Elizabeth, you are the New

Zealand Sudoku champion,

how does that feel?

It feels pretty good. I was

really pleased with my score because

I did better than last year.

I was really in the zone that day.

So it is all about the personal

score rather than beating

other players?

Pretty much. I think the score

matters more as I am trying to

beat myself. I like to see improvement

in everything I do.

So when you found out you

had won how did that feel?

I actually thought there might

have been a problem with the

website when I saw my score.

But then I realised I had beaten

my last year’s score by quite a

bit so I got pretty excited. Last

year I placed second, I was extra

determined this year as I had

lost last year by the tiniest of

margins.

What did you win?

The New Zealand Puzzle Association

is posting a medal and

a shirt to me for being the New

Zealand champion.

Tell me what it is like to

compete in a sudoku tournament?

It is a really friendly sort of

competition because everyone

is really competing with themselves.

It is online and you can

have as many goes as you want

so there really is no pressure.

I get the puzzle and just dive

straight in, then it is just me and

the puzzle.

How did you get into sudoku?

I have always loved puzzles. I

like to try all them out and they

are so accessible so I can get

them anywhere. I have been into

them since I was a little kid.

What made you want to

start competitively doing

sudoku?

I found the website when I

was poking around on the internet,

did a few for fun then saw

there was a competition and

said might as well have a go.

Do you win prize money for

the events?

That would be nice, but no. It

is all about personal satisfaction

for me anyway, I just

Watch

Repairs

want to beat my last score.

What was the first puzzle

you did?

I can’t remember what I got

into first. I know I started off

with puzzle books that have a

variety of different ones in it to

challenge myself.

Where did she go to school?

I went to Burnside High.

Tell me a bit about how

school was for you?

I quite enjoyed school. I was

quite motivated and kept my

head down.

Were you good at maths at

school?

At high school I was good

at maths and science. But

at primary school I was

pretty good at English

and literacy in general.

But there was a switch

in high school I am not

sure how that came

about.

Tell me a bit about

your friends?

We were not

sporty at all

although a few of us

did get into ballet.

I love movies

and coffee all the

usual.

with your job?

Well, I work at the post office

so it doesn’t really help all that

much. Thinking logically really

helps me with puzzles but it gets

a bit much sometimes so I have

taken up abstract painting to pull

myself in a new direction.

Abstract painting, that’s a

bit different from puzzles?

Yes, it is but I love it. I like

making a mess with the paint on

a canvas. It is just something a

bit different.

Do you have any other hobbies?

Painting is the main other

hobby aside from puzzles. I also

like going to the gym and I am

part of a writers’ group.

What do you do with the

writers’ group?

The writers are a group of

people interested in writing and

reading. It is a lot of fun and I

have met a few good people in

it.

Speaking of friends, do you

get them coming to you for

sudoku pointers?

Not really. Most people say

I can’t do those but they have

never attempted to do one. I tell

them to chose an easy one and

give it a go. You never know you

could be good at them.

Have you ever been completely

stumped by a sudoku

puzzle?

Yes, I have. I find sometimes

when I get stuck I put it away

then come back to it and then I

find I can work it out quite easy.

Sometimes you look and look

and look and can’t see what the

pattern is, when that happens it

is best to put it away and come

back to it later while you mind

is fresh.

Was this year’s score your

best ever?

Yes 14,195 is my best score

ever. It is tallied by a combination

of time and points. You lose

a point for every second you

spend solving a puzzle, gain

points for a correct placement

and lose points for a mistake. At

the end of the thirty minutes the

four highest scores from solved

puzzles are added together and

that is your championship score.

You can chose the size and difficultly

of the puzzle, bigger ones

get you more points so you work

out which one will you will able

to complete in the time allowed.

Now you are the New Zealand

champion, will you try be

the world champion?

I hadn’t thought of that. I

would have to look into it.

Former St Andrew’s College

student Professor Roy Kerr

will be awarded the rare

honour of the title Canterbury

Distinguished Professor in

November.

It is the highest academic

title that can be awarded by the

University Council and has only

been won twice before in Canterbury

University’s 143-year

history.

Professor Kerr (right) was

nominated for the title after he

won the Crafoord Prize, which

he will receive in Sweden in

two days time.

The new appointment makes

Professor Kerr the only Canterbury

Distinguished Professor in

New Zealand.

Canterbury University chancellor

Dr John Wood said the

previous distinguished professors

were both Nobel Prize winners,

the late Sir Clive Granger,

recipient of the Nobel Prize for

Economic Sciences, and Robert

Grubbs, who was awarded a

Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

“We are extremely proud of

Professor Kerr’s long association

with the University of Canterbury

and all that he has done

to increase our understanding of

the universe,” he said.

Dr Wood notes that the Royal

Society of London described his

work as of particular importance

to general relativistic

astrophysics, and all subsequent

detailed work on black holes

has depended fundamentally

on it.

“He has made other important

contributions to general relativity

theory but the discovery

of the Kerr black hole was so

extraordinary that it is comparable

to the discovery of a new

elementary particle,” he said.

Professor Kerr retired as Professor

of Mathematics at Canterbury

University in 1993 after

22 years, including a decade

as the head of the mathematics

department.

At its December 2015 graduation

ceremonies, the university

conferred a Doctor of Science

on Professor Kerr.

The Crafoord Prize award

ceremony will be held at the

Royal Swedish Academy of

Sciences in Stockholm, in the

presence of HM King Carl XVI

Gustaf of Sweden.

Nikau Pouaka-Grego has

been named the first ever

under 13 New Zealand

player of the year.

Baseball New Zealand

named Nikau, 11, as the

He has been selected

Nikau was unsure he

would be picked for this

was “painful” waiting for

the call from the coaches.

“Yeah it was exciting

to be picked, but pretty

painful waiting for that

call. I kept in contact with

quite a few guys who all

got in, and they let me

know when they got in,”

he said.

Mr Grego coaches his

son’s under 13 club team,

the Christchurch Redbirds,

based in Parklands, as well

as the under 15s side.

But he said schooling is

the number one priority for

his son.

“We really do put

pressure on him for school

work and things like that

as well. That’s his number

one, and baseball is a backup

plan . . . but absolutely

Exciting New Information

& Service Centre for Seniors

LIfe CAn get tougher as we get older,

and it’s often easy to think that we should

simply struggle on. Yet a huge range of

services is available to make life easier.

Because these services are sometimes

difficult to find, a new non-profit

Centre for Senior Wellbeing has been

established. They offer a useful mix of

affordable services and information on

other community services such as falls

Prevention and Green Prescriptions.

Their desk is manned by dedicated staff

who will connect you to the services you

need. Although much of this information

can be found on-line, for many this is a

burden and talking to a ‘real person’ is

much more pleasant.

Problems with feet is a real issue

for many older people with limited

flexibility. The Centre offers inhome

footcare for a reasonable fee.

Additionally, there are services provided

by dieticians to help with weight gain

or loss, nutrition and shopping. Also

occupational therapists who help

maintain independence, safety in the

home, and practical strategies for

coping with issues like memory loss and

pain. Speech and language therapists

support those with swallowing and

communication concerns. Physiotherapy,

in-clinic or at home, can help you stay

mobile, reduce pain and increase wellness.

A particularly beneficial and underused

service is Caring for Carers. Many

of us caring for our loved ones see it as

our duty and deal with the stresses this

brings on a daily basis. Caring for Carers

has helped carers through their range of

services for years, such as information on

respite care.

Exercise for life

The Centre for Senior Wellbeing will

put you in touch with service providers

like Physical Sense. They offer a range of

practical support-solutions to problems

many seniors encounter. There are

exercise classes for stroke survivors where

clients can either further improve or at

least maintain their condition after they

leave hospital. There are four classes a

week which help with strength, balance

and transferrable skills. There are also

other diagnosis-specific classes including

Intermittent Claudication, Diabetes and

Osteoporosis which means users can learn

about their condition and share their ways

of dealing with it. There’s even a general

class for seniors. The first four classes are

free and may continue to be free if you are

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Herbs & Natural Ingredients Give Powerful

Support For Your Immune System!

ReSeARcHeRS HAve shown that

certain herbs and natural ingredients

can dramatically reduce your chances of

succumbing to colds and flu.

Formulas like Go Healthy “Go vir-

Defence” has been based on the latest

research and has already proved itself too

many.

Due to the high potency extracts used

in this formula most will find only one or

two capsule daily sufficient to keep our

immune system at optimum, however at

the first sign of any immune attack, e.g.

headaches, sore throat, aches etc the dose

should be increased to one or two capsules

up to three times daily. Most will then

find the symptoms will disappear quickly

without getting worse.

Go vir-Defence contains the following

powerful ingredients:

Olive Leaf extract has become one of

the most popular ingredients used in the

treatment of immune attacks as it has

strong anti-microbial properties that help

slow the growth of bacteria and prevent

the replication of viruses.

Garlic extract is effective in combating

bacteria, viruses and fungi and supporting

the immune system. in general it may be

used as a preventative for most infectious

conditions, digestive as well as respiratory.

The anti-microbial action makes it suitable

for treatment of respiratory infections,

influenza, recurrent colds and respiratory

catarrh.

Andrographis extract has powerful

immune enhancing properties and has

been shown to help prevent the common

cold as well as reduce the duration and

severity of the symptoms of the common

cold.

echinacea extract is a natural antibiotic

and infection fighter. it helps kill bacteria,

viruses and fungi and provides powerful

immune support.

Pau D’ Arco extract assists in enhancing

the body’s immune system.

citrus Bioflavonoids work with vitamin

c and support the immune system as well

as strengthening capillaries and reducing

inflammation.

vitamin c is a powerful antioxidant and

helps counteract many types of bacteria

and viral infections.

elderberry extract provides nutrients for

immune support.

Zinc is an essential mineral for the

immune system and general health. it is

required by every cell in the body. it is

common to have sub-optimal levels of

Zinc. Zinc possesses anti-viral activity.

Generally this all-natural formula is

very safe and highly effective without any

side effects but due to the high potency

extracts used please check with us first if

you are on any prescription medication.

This formula is also not suitable during

pregnancy or lactation.

TURMERIC - The spice

with profound healing abilities

An Ancient spice called turmeric and

its active ingredient curcumin have been

proven to reduce and even eliminate pain

and inflammation better than leading

prescription medications. inflammation

seems to be the common factor in

all disease and even aging. turmeric

effectively reduces inflammation while also

stopping the initiation of inflammation in

the first place. By stopping inflammation

at the source it seems to work wonders for

aches, pains, swelling and arthritis while

at the same time supporting the healing

process with its powerful antioxidants. This

is where anti-inflammatory drugs fail, they

only disguise the problem but do nothing

to support the healing process and in fact

may even allow the problem to worsen.

india is a country where turmeric is

highly respected for its health giving

benefits. it is consumed on a regular basis

and researchers believe this is probably

the reason many common diseases are far

less common in india that other countries.

A study of 2,700 elderly indians in rural

north india found less than 1% had any

sign of Alzheimer’s, the lowest rate ever

recorded, whereas compared to America

the rate is now closer to 33%.

The #1 cancer center in America, MD

Anderson, now uses turmeric with its

cancer patients. Dr. Bharat Aggarwal,

lead researcher at MD Anderson says

they have not found a single cancer that

curcumin has not worked. curcumin binds

to 33 proteins, allowing it to interrupt a

multitude of pathways tumors use to grow

and spread, including the growth of new

blood vessels that feed tumors. it can even

cause the cancer cells to “commit suicide”

without damaging healthy cells.

curcumin appears to be a potent weapon

against cardiovascular disease also. in

recent research it was shown to lower

triglycerides (considered a major risk

factor for cardiovascular disease) by 65%.

Another study found it to decrease oxidised

LDL cholesterol by 33% while increasing

the HDL (good cholesterol) by 29%, and all

this in only seven days.

Researchers have now shown curcumin

to be beneficial in over 600 diseases

including type 2 diabetes and even

depression.

The secret with turmeric is its active

ingredient curcumin. curcumin however

has low bio-availability so not much will

be absorbed into our bloodstream. Meriva

as used in GO-tURMeRic has overcome

this problem with its patented molecular

delivery system that offers superior

absorption of curcumin. Because of this

enhanced absorption GO-tURMeRic has

the potential to be beneficial in numerous

ailments and offer significantly greater

benefits than standard turmeric.

The Spice with a Profound Healing Ability!

TURMERIC

Researchers cannot believe how effective turmeric & its active ingredient curcumin

is proving in supporting the natural healing of the body, with some calling it a natural

cure-all. It has been found beneficial in well over 600 diseases. Research has shown

a common factor with disease is inflammation & this is where curcumin is amazing.

It naturally reduces inflammation present while also stopping inflammation from

starting in the first place. This allows the body a much better chance of healing itself.

Studies have shown curcumin to be more beneficial than common prescription drugs

for pain, swelling & inflammation.

Curcumin however is normally poorly absorbed in the

body but a patented extra called MERIVA (available as GO-

TURMERIC) has overcome this with their molecular delivery

system. Meriva is significantly better absorbed giving it the

potential to support the healing of numerous ailments.

Curcumins have been shown to support:

• Joint health, reducing pain, swelling, inflammation & stiffness

GO-TURMERIC

contains the advanced

MERIVA-CURCUMIN for

Superior Results

• Cardiovascular health, reduces risk factors like CRP (C-Reactive Protein),

increases good HDL cholesterol while reducing oxidised LDL cholesterol,

lowers triglycerides (considered a major risk factor for heart disease) by as

much as 65%, supports healthy blood flow

• The body’s natural healing process & without side effects

• Cancer (According to Dr. Bharat Aggarwal, lead researcher at MD Anderson,

the #1 cancer center in America, they have not found a single cancer that

curcumin has not been beneficial

• Alzheimer’s & dementia (several small studies have shown dramatic benefits

even in advanced stages)

• Depression (Two recent trials have shown curcumin highly beneficial)

• Diabetes (One study by the “American Diabetes Association” found curcumin to

be 100% effective in preventing type 2 diabetes. Other studies have shown it

to protect against diabetes-related complications.)

I have never regretted my

decision to go to Hillmorton

High School. I genuinely

believe it helped shape me into

the person I am today.

Hillmorton was a combination

of different people and cultures

like no other place I had been

– it made me learn to deal

with many types of people.

The school was smaller than

others in the area which I liked:

I wanted to be a person not a

number.

I had so many great experiences

at Hillmorton – playing in the

school softball and netball teams

and going to tournaments, being

When it came time to choosing

a high school, my parents asked

me which Open Nights I would

like to attend. My response was

‘Hillmorton’. I am more than

pleased with my decision to

study at Hillmorton and do not

regret it in the slightest.

Hillmorton provided me with a

wealth of opportunities to learn

in different environments, and

challenged me to achieve with

each and every opportunity.

I was also lucky enough to meet

a great “melting pot” of people,

Hillmorton High

helped me realise

my passion and

to not be afraid to

go after what feels

right. I discovered

that it’s okay to

live differently

and not go for

the job that was

stable, that paid

the most or that

was expected by

others. Hillmorton

helped me find

myself. I also

began to learn and

accept challenges

that were and

are bigger than

myself, and learn

to never yield or give up but to

push further than what I think I

am capable of.

Looking back at my time at

Hillmorton I know now that I

would never have got through

that critical time in my life

without the support of my

teachers and peers. Hillmorton

is like a family.

which has helped me to relate

to, and understand the different

people that I interact with on a

day-to-day basis.

The teachers are second-tonone,

and genuinely care about

the education of their students.

They, and the other Hillmorton

staff, encourage students to

achieve to the best of their

abilities, whilst also making

time to help those students who

need additional assistance.

Hillmorton lives by its vision –

Personal best, nothing less!

The education I received at Hillmorton

has prepared me admirably for starting

university this year. Teachers at

Hillmorton always went the extra mile

to make their subjects challenging and

interesting, and support was always

there.

Hillmorton provides a diverse

cultural environment as well as

After graduating from

Hillmorton High School in

2012, I enrolled at the University

of Canterbury to study for a

Bachelor of Engineering in

Civil Engineering.

Now in my final year of the

degree, I am well on my way

to achieving this with first

class honours. I received the

University of Canterbury Senior

Scholarship.

Currently, I have the

extraordinary opportunity of

completing some of my study

at the University of California

at Berkeley. During high school

heaps of sporting, musical and drama

opportunities which makes its students

such strong, well-rounded citizens.

After almost a semester at university,

I’m getting a sense that in order to

succeed here, you need to get along

well with everyone and to study hard.

Hillmorton taught me the importance

of both.

84 Northwood Boulevard, Northwood

Auction: Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 10am (unless sold prior)

5 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 2 living rooms |1 dining room | 2-car garage | Listing #: PI43328

When our owners built their

family home, they placed

a huge emphasis on both

quality and space, creating

an expansive 298.7-square-metre (over

foundation) residence, which is as functional

as it is stylish and well-appointed.

A total of five bedrooms are complemented

by three bathrooms, including an ensuite off

the master, ensuite of second bedroom and

a main bathroom that features a sumptuous

spa bath.

The kitchen is large, with a skylight bathing

the entire area in natural light and an array

of quality appliances, ensuring the ability to

cater to all occasions.

The 2.7-metre stud enhances the sense

of space in the living and family rooms,

while bold splashes of colour punctuate the

otherwise neutral palette, creating plenty of

personality while still leaving scope for the

new owners to leave their own mark.

Indoor/outdoor flow was a priority

in the design phase, and the brief was

certainly fulfilled. Two of the bedrooms

enjoy direct access outside, while the open

plan living areas spill effortlessly out to the

manicured grounds.

The 708m2 section plays host to outstanding

established gardens and detailed BBQ area

(with power and lighting), while an oversized

double garage and an abundance of off-street

parking complete the appeal.

Offered to the market by owners who have

decided the home is simply too big for them

now the kids have gone, this fabulous home

represents a compelling opportunity for

families of all shapes and sizes. Act quickly, as

our owners are ready to embark on the next

chapter of their lives and a sale is imminent!

Open Homes: Saturday and Sunday

1pm to 2.45pm. Auction on Thursday,

June 2, 2016 at 10am (unless sold prior).

Karrin Allyson with the

Tom Warrington Trio

INTERNATIONALLY renowned

jazz vocalist Karrin Allyson and the

Tom Warrington Trio are coming to

New Zealand and play one

Christchurch gig at the Jazz School

Auditorium on Thursday 2nd June.

The five time Grammy nominated

chanteuse, who's career ha spanned

the past three decades, is known for

her impressive musical range and

impeccable intonation. She glides

effortlessly between bittersweet and

sassy, covering the greats from Duke

Ellington through to Dizzy Gillespie.

Accompanying Karrin is the

acclaimed Tom Warrington Trio.

Made up of Tom on bass (Buddy

Rich/Stan Getz), Joe La Barbera on

drums (Bill Evans/Tony

Bennett/Woody Herman) and Larry

Koonse on guitar (Seth

McFarlane/Cleo Lane), the ensemble oozes

skill and experience.

Be swept away by smooth jazz performed by

these world class musicians direct from the

USA.

CPIT Jazz School Auditorium, 130 High

Street. Tickets $38 GA/$20 Students, available

at Eventfinda.
