BEAUTIFYING: Artist Maxine Burney turning a Chorus communication box into a work of art.

• By Julia Evans

A CHORUS communication box

has become the latest canvas for

a Bishopdale artist.

Armed with a paintbrush,

palette and bright paint Maxine

Burney has turned the boring

green power box into the talking

point of Staines St.

Mrs Burney came up with the

idea after the box, outside her

neighbour’s house, was tagged

and the graffiti wasn’t removed.

“I asked Chorus for approval

to paint the box and sent them a

plan, it took a couple of months

but they finally agreed,” she said.

Although since she was

formally commissioned by the

power company, Burney said

plans

• By Julia Evans

BUSINESSES ON Cranford St

are pleading with the city council

to change the Northern Arterial

designs or they will have to shut

up shop.

“I’ve told them they’ll have to

buy our business . . . we’ll have to

shut our doors, that’s where it’s

heading,” said Keith Wayman,

who owns Small World Preschool

and Nursery with his wife Sue.

The upgrade will see Cranford St

widened to four lanes.

Mr Wayman says businesses on

the street will struggle if the city

council removes car parking and

does not include U-turning bays.

Mr Wayman has worked with

the city council to include U-

turning bays to maintain access

to businesses along the stretch

between McFaddens Rd and the

rural zone. “We just wanted turning

bays down the end,” he said.

City council manager planning

and delivery transport Lynette

Ellis said the city council is still

working on the final design.

“The design team is currently

engaging with affected stakeholders

and the final design is yet to

be confirmed,” she said.

Bid to fix Mairehau’s crash corner

Residents fear

next smash

will be fatal

• By Andrew King

RESIDENTS ON a Mairehau

street believe it’s only a matter of

time before a child is seriously

hurt following a number of

crashes at one of its corners.

Residents between 59 and 65

Glenfield Cres have seen plenty

of people misjudge the corner

outside their homes. The latest

incident put a man in hospital

with serious injuries after he hit

a parked vehicle in a driveway on

September 13.

He had to be cut from the

vehicle by firefighters and

resident Dave Parson’s work

vehicle was badly damaged.

Bob Autridge, who has lived

on the street for the past 16

years, said something needs to

be done.

“We need a bloody great big

sign and some speed bumps put

in,” he said. “It is only a matter

of time before some kid on the

footpath gets it.”

Haymes said a report on the

latest crash had been received

from a resident. City council

staff are investigating some “lowcost

interventions to make the

bends more conspicuous”.

Installing two speed bumps

would cost about $50,000 but Mr

Haymes said, at the present time,

traffic calming initiatives were

not a high-priority and funding

was not available for these types

of schemes.

Mr Autridge asked the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board last year to paint yellow

lines around the corner to

improve visibility, which they

did in January.

Residents say the lines were a

good start, but more needs to be

done.

In June, a woman failed to take

the corner and ended up on the

Before that crash, he said

another person had actually hit

In 2012, two men in a “soupedup

Subaru” came around the

corner and smashed into a

container on Mr Amor’s front

lawn.

“They moved the container

about 20cm, so they must have

hit it quite hard,” he said.

found the service

"fantastic" and "the whole

Les Singer of Hokitika is

another very satisfied

client since 1995. Les lost

his hearing many years

ago and has worn a

number of hearing aids

over the years with each

model better than the

previous one. Wearing

hearing aids helps Les

Traffic danger for children

St Albans

resident

and mother

Rachel

Donaldson

writes about

the danger

traffic in the

suburb is putting children in

FOR THE last five years I have

walked my children to and from

school but I never meant to

continue escorting them.

After a certain age, once they

were clear on stopping, looking and

listening, I felt confident that like

my own childhood, I would just

say goodbye to them at the door

and they would go without me.

The busiest road that they have

to cross is considered the “gold

standard” of intersections.

It is a signal operated intersection

at the junction of Cranford

and Berwick Sts in St Albans. The

green man tells you when to cross

accompanied by a loud buzzer.

We all know them.

However, for the last five years

I have watched cars run the

red lights with a frequency that

increases every week.

Some days cars will drive

through the red light at this

intersection at every single light

change.

In the last six months, I have

seen a child clipped by the wing

mirror of a car that crossed

through the intersection while

the green man was going and this

was the tipping point.

My road safety advice to my

children has changed from “waiting

for the green man” to “even

when the green man flashes up

and the buzzer is going, always

double check that someone isn’t

going to come through anyway

and stand back against the fence

while waiting to cross due the

phenomenal speed that cars are

travelling at.”

I have no confidence that drivers

will obey the road rules when

they see schoolchildren crossing

at an intersection where there is a

very clear stop/go signal.

Instead, I have taught my children

to be the second-guessers, to

be the defensive pedestrians, not

to expect that an adult driving

a car will have more road sense

than them, a seven and a nineyear-old.

This selfish driving behaviour

led to my getting signs made and

put up – not only at the Cranford

and Berwick Sts intersection but

at the other major intersection

that is used by St Albans School

children, the Cranford and Westminster

Sts intersection.

This crossing not only meets

the “gold standard” of intersections

but St Albans School, for

the last eight years, has paid

(from their own, extremely

limited education budget) a lady

to monitor and guide children

through the intersection due to

the sheer number of red lightrunners

that drive this section of

road every single day.

And still St Albans residents

and school parents wait for the

city council that moves at glacial

speed to do something about the

lack of signage along Cranford St

to let drivers know that over 600

children go to St Albans school

and use this road to get home

every day.

That in our suburb there are

almost 1000 children on the

move.

As I watch the Northern Corridor

inching closer and closer to

completion and see the impact

that increased traffic flows are going

to have on pedestrians along

Cranford St, I know that I will be

walking my kids to school and

back for the foreseeable future.

Readers also respond

to the article about city

council ordering that

the signs discouraging

dangerous driving in St

Albans be taken down

Ray Derry – Good on Duncan

Webb for supporting Rachel

Donaldson and her signage. Here

is a member of the public trying

to protect people from speeding

drivers and the city council go

the opposite way and order the

removal of the signs. The city

council and the complainant

need to get some common sense.

Allan Visser – I would like to

voice my view which is this: I believe

the city council was wrong

in taking the “St Albans children

matter slow down” signs. I am

so angry that it has done this

as I think they are great signs,

DANGER:

Rachel

Donaldson

made signs

to address

speeding

and

dangerous

driving in

St Albans.

and I am sure that drivers have

taken notice of them. The biggest

reason these signs were put up is

there is no lights or signs to indicate

to drivers to slow down to

30km/h as there is a school in the

area. Sure there is English Park

there but a lot of schoolchildren

walk through its car park to get

to Cranford St and then to get

home. This is something important

the city council should be

doing something about, therefore

those signs were a great incentive.

Besides Cranford St is very busy

at the time when children come

out of school, just like rush hour.

So if you ask me, I think the city

council wants the children to be

killed. It seems the city council

doesn’t care about life, instead

it only cares about money. I

say: “Let us forget money, and

concentrate on saving lives.” That

should be on the top of its list.

Readers respond to the

article about a stoush

between Papanui-Innes

Community Board

member John Stringer

(right) and city councillor

Aaron Keown over the

importance of upgrades to

the Gardiners, Breens and

Harewood Rds intersection

Glenda Hicks – I am one if

those who has contacted Aaron

Keown some time ago. I wait

daily for some evidence of a city

council response. I live off Gardiners

Rd between Harewood

and Sawyers Arms Rds. I use the

intersection daily. Until earlier

this year, I commuted to Lincoln

via Johns Rd. It is utter nonsense

for John Stringer to opine that

the well-designed new roundabout

arrangement on Johns Rd

is more dangerous than having

to cross the four lanes on Harewood,

Gardiners and Breens Rds

corner with no assistance whatsoever.

Frustration here causes

people to take risks or have to

turn left and take the nearest U-

turn to get onto the other side.

Mr Keown is undoubtedly representing

the interests of his area.

Mr Stringer is not, and should

not interfere. Anything that the

local media can do to hasten action

on this traffic hazard would

be appreciated.

Graeme Wood – We live

not far from the Harewood,

Breens, Gardiners Rds intersection

and try to avoid most turns

from this dangerous intersection.

I would suggest the powers

to be place temporary cameras

to see what happens at this site.

The police would have a field day

at the amount of motorists that

fail to stop at the compulsory

stop signs, and the drivers who

play Russian roulette to get from

Breens to Gardiners and vice

versa (four lanes, two each way).

Clare reilly - DanCe of life

If the city council can put traffic

lights on Sawyers Arms Rd outside

Northlands Shopping Centre,

then they should get their

priorities right an install them at

Harewood, Breens and Gardiners

Rds. The Harewood/Russley

roundabout flows very well and

controls major traffic. Maybe Mr

Stringer (above) has a night job

and sleeps during the day and

doesn’t see what goes on?

Phil Millar – So where does

this John Stringer live? I bet

it’s not near the intersection. I

challenge him to come down to

this intersection any working

day of the week and spend two

hours in the morning from

7-9am and from 3-6pm. It is

obvious that he has an eyesight

problem or is in denial about

the safety of this intersection.

Where was he when Aaron

Keown had the meeting on the

corner earlier in the year?

In Clare Reilly’s new exhibition, ‘Dance of Life’ she expresses the resilience and tenacity to keep finding

joy and beauty in the natural surroundings. Especially in the hard times, when confronted by the big

challenges in life, that we must all pass through at some stage.

There are events, such as the death of a loved one, that can turn our lives upside down. Finding strength

in nature can help us to stay connected and grounded and bring a sense of being part of the dance of life.

These paintings are meditations on the quiet moments, where we can

step away from everyday stress and become fully present and find a

sense of peace.

They are an invitation to breathe in the moment and dance with life.

Apology to residents over park repair

$900k revamp

set to start in

November

• By Julia Evans

ST ALBANS residents who

have been unable to use their

neighbourhood park for almost

seven years have received an

apology.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board has said sorry for

the significant delays to the turf

renewal and pavilion rebuild,

which has seen the condition

of St Albans Park deteriorate

since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Although the park’s $900,000

revamp is set to start in November,

board chairwoman Ali

Jones said the delay has been far

too long and the community

deserved an apology.

Nearby residents said the

renewal couldn’t come soon

enough.

Information about the work

schedule and an apology has

been sent to the St Albans Residents’

Association for the entire

community.

Association co-chairwoman

Emma Twaddell said it will be

good to see the work finally

begin.

“It’s great to hear that it’s

finally happening, but it is a

shame it’s taken so long because

it’s such a well-used community

space,” she said. Sports groups

which use the park have not

been able to play a home game

this season because the fields are

in such poor condition. And the

playground fills with water after

rain.

Ms Jones said there were no

excuses for the delay.

But it had been caused by a

lack of funding and city council

earthquake insurance settlement

issues.

“As soon we saw the concerns

being voiced, saying there were

no timelines for the St Albans

Park renewal pavilion rebuild,

we immediately sought information

and confirmation from

city council staff,” Ms Jones said.

The timeline for the park

renewal was brought forward

in the city council’s Long Term

Plan after a the community

board voiced its concerns.

City council staff are currently

working alongside groups from

the area to come up with design

concepts which will go back out

to the community for consultation

before being approved.

“When the park is fenced off

for the work, storyboards will be

put up so that the community

can see what and when work

is happening, and how the

finished pavilion will look,” Ms

Jones said.

Artist brings

Chorus box

•From page 1

While the neighbourhood

is tight-knit, Mrs Burney has

lived there for nine years and

she said this has brought them

closer together.

An artist by trade, Mrs

Burney has been working from

her Bishopdale home since the

February 22, 2011, earthquake

forced her out of her last place

of work – the Christchurch

Arts Centre.

“I’ve done a few portraits

from my place but nothing like

this box,” she said.

But Mrs Burney said it’s

been a “very liberating” process.

“Usually I paint quite small

and detailed. This is detailed

but it’s got me painting big,”

she said.

Mrs Burney has never had

such a social job as she said art

is often quite isolating.

People in the neighbourhood

have been stopping to chat,

tooting their horns as they

drive by and even inviting her

in for cups of tea.

“I’d love to do more, it’s been

really cool, really fun,” Mrs

Burney said.

WORDSMITH: Kate Ellis

speaks to the National Council

of Women.

Student’s poem marks

women’s right to vote

• By Julia Evans

KATE ELLIS’ poem is about

empowering women.

It was particularly significant

then that the Papanui resident

and year 12 St Margaret’s

College student took out the

Lois Middlemiss Secondary

SCHOOLS

School Poetry Award on

the 124th anniversary of

women receiving the right to

vote.

Kate recited her poem in

front of the National Council of

Women at the Kate Sheppard

Memorial in the central city to

mark the anniversary.

We Can – by Kate Ellis

You can stand –

But you must be silent.

You can watch –

But you must not complain.

You can experience –

But you must not learn.

You can be affected –

But you cannot vote.

You can sit and be pretty –

But you cannot age.

You can watch it all be taken

away –

But you cannot cry for it back.

You can wait for a change –

Unless you make it.

You can stand up and be counted –

Unless you learn to let them stop

you.

You can be strong –

Unless you let their voices exceed

yours.

You can be as loud as you wish –

So long as your voice can carry

and teach.

You can have a say in your

world –

So long as you prepare to

overcome silence.

You can be who you wish to be –

So long as you ignore those

who would take back your

freedom.

You can be free –

If you don’t expect it to be handed

to you.

You can be independent –

If you don’t hold onto the

expectation of the past.

You can be a new woman –

If you vote.

You can –

Wait,

That change,

What become of it?

What of difference?

What of strength?

The battle did not end it merely

began with that paper –

I thought you knew, I thought you

knew.

Bodies, piled high, degraded –

Disrespected on the grounds of

biology,

Will she have children? Soon?

How can she be right either way?

He is right,

He lacks the parts,

He lacks the limitations.

She is a risk –

Rise, should you?

Shout, can you?

Fight, will you?

A pretty face, does not dismiss,

A quick wit,

A sly grin,

A love of life and knowledge,

A purpose

Feminine strength,

Not flesh,

But a mind and a resilience,

From here to the red hot end.

Cobham’s Disney show

• By Emily O’Connell

COBHAM Intermediate

is currently putting on its

production of Disney’s The Lion

King Junior.

The show, which has a cast of

80 students, is directed by Impact

Dance and Stage School tutor

Mandy Roberts.

Year 8 pupils Maggie Harris

and Lily Barrowcliffe both act in

the production and describe it as

a “heart-warming, entertaining

family show which will blow you

away and take you on a journey

through the circle of life.”

The pupils take part in all

aspects of the show – from performing

on stage to working in

teams on make-up, set painting,

sound, lighting and front-ofhouse.

THE CITY’S most vibrant public

art season is fast approaching.

And to mark the beginning

of the SCAPE Public Art season

next month, four north-west

students will sing as part of

the New Zealand Secondary

Students’ Choir.

Alex Meekings, of Burnside

High, Holly Evans, of Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School, Samantha

Hickford, of Christchurch Girls’

High, and Billie MacGibbon,

of St Margaret’s College, will

perform with the choir in

three special concerts from

•The production is on

tonight and runs until

Thursday. Tickets are $20

per adult and $15 for children

under the age of 16. Tickets

can be purchased from the

school the website – www.

cobham.school.nz

Students hit notes in choir

October 7-8. The first will be

at the Margaret Mahy Family

Playground, then St Mary’s

Pro-Cathedral and finally at the

Transitional Cathedral’s morning

service.

The choir rehearses under the

direction of Andrew Withington

and is conducted by Matthew

Everingham.

Mr Withington recently

completed his PhD in choral

pedagogy at Canterbury

University while Mr Everingham

runs the choral programme at St

Andrew’s College.

Robots tell shark attack story

SCHOOLS

• By Julia Evans

A TEAM of Selwyn House

pupils is paving the way to a

robotic future.

The school’s year 6 robotics

team of Evelyn King, Sonya Li-

McHenry, Sophie Schneideman

and Aria Wakelin took out

top spot in the junior theatre

division of the Robocup

nationals in Dunedin.

The pupils had to make and

design robots, which would then

be programmed to perform a

piece of theatre.

Their robots combined to

tell the story of a woman they

admire – Bethany Hamilton, a

professional surfer who survived

a shark attack but lost her arm in

the process.

The story depicted the shark

attack but went on to celebrate

her resilience and return to

surfing.

Teachers Liz Fairhall and

Simon Christie helped the pupils

with their robotics during a class

unit of inquiry.

The pupils used Lego EV3 kits

and Arduino microprocessors to

create their robots.

If they found the Lego kits

did not have a piece they were

looking for, they designed and

ROBOTICS: Sonya Li-McHenry, Sophie Schneideman, Aria

Wakelin and Evelyn King with their winning robots.

3D-printed their own pieces to

fit the purpose, allowing them

to move beyond the kit

limitations.

“There is a big need for

women in science, technology,

engineering and maths careers

and Robocup provides a great

pathway to engage and captivate

young girls within a tech future,”

Mrs Fairhall said.

INQUIRY: The pupils spent

class time programming their

robots to tell the tale of surfer

Bethany Hamilton.

WELLBEING

FEAST DAY

Message from the Catholic Diocese

of Christchurch

Our Diocese is proud of Marian College. The school is

thriving at its inner-city campus location alongside the

Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament on Barbadoes Street.

Marian College shows us clearly that the heart of a

Catholic school lies not in its buildings, but in a strong,

supportive community built around faith.

Marian College belongs to the Catholic Kāhui Ako

Community of Learning, one of our 13 schools in

Christchurch. Each school has an affiliated parish and

networks contributing to the Diocese.

Alongside our Diocese earthquake rebuild and repair

programme, our parishes have been offered the chance to

focus on spiritual renewal as we wait for a new Bishop

to be appointed.

The process for the rebuild of Marian College’s campus

will be a priority for our new Bishop, who will ultimately

make the decision on Marian College’s permanent site.

This decision will not be made in isolation however,

there are many factors to consider and groups to consult

with, given the changes in our communities since

the earthquakes.

The Diocese looks forward to keeping the community

updated on progress. In the meantime, Marian College

continues to achieve excellent results and to thrive.

A special thank you goes to the Marian College

community – students, parents, staff and leadership, for

your ongoing patience, support and cooperation.

Fr Rick Loughnan

Catholic Diocese of Christchurch Administrator

The Marian College Principal

Marian College is very fortunate to have a small, friendly,

family atmosphere which comes from teachers and

students knowing each other well.

I am delighted to share that our students and teachers are

making the very best of our current site – opportunities

for collaboration are plenty and the benefits that come of

an inner-city location are taken up with enthusiasm.

At Marian College our special Catholic character is

built into everything we do. Our earthquake recovery

journey has taught us, that while brand new buildings and

facilities are an exciting proposition, it is our faith, our

community and our people that matter. I am excited about

the future of Marian College – we can all look forward to a

bright, sparkling new start. I hope you enjoy reading about

some of our recent happenings.

Mary-Lou Davidson,

Marian College Principal

Feast Day Festivities

One of the most anticipated events on the Marian

College calendar is Feast Day – recognised every year to

celebrate the Assumption of Mary. This year, Feast Day

began with a whole school Mass, which included the

blessing of the new music department, featuring practice

spaces and a multipurpose room.

Traditional Feast Day activities involve Marian College’s

house groups coming together in Xavier Hall to compete

in a talent quest and house group chant competition.

Rivalry between the four Marian College houses –

Brodie, Deans, Seymour and Takahe – is strong and

overwhelmingly positive. Students have been known to

rehearse their chants and performances for up to six weeks

in advance, polishing their acts ready for competition.

Each performance is judged and awarded house points

which are tallied throughout the year. The house with

the most points earned – for academic, sporting, cultural,

service and cultural achievements – is awarded the annual

Inter-House Shield at the end of year school prize giving.

Aiming for France

Football talent Rebecca Lake (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Irakehu)

could be heading to France next year to represent New

Zealand and play in the 2018 U20 Women’s World Cup.

The Year 13 Marian college student helped captain

the New Zealand U19 Football team to victory in the

Oceania Football Confederation championships in

Auckland recently, securing the team’s spot in France,

2018. Rebecca captained the team twice over the five

game campaign which saw the team win all their games

convincingly. Rebecca is a member of the Football Ferns

development squad and has played with Mainland Pride

(the National Women’s regional team) for three years.

RIA KNEY

Judo medallist

Congratulations to Ria Kney (Ngāti Kahungunu) who

won a gold medal in the U52kg girls category at the New

Zealand Secondary Schools Judo Tournament last term.

She won all five of her fights in the one day tournament

held at Lincoln High School. Ria also won gold in two

categories at the Auckland International Judo Open

tournament held three weeks later at ASB Stadium in

Auckland. One of her fights lasted just ten seconds!

Wellbeing and service

A priority for Marian College this year has been student

and staff wellbeing. This year, Marian has introduced two

new courses: Kia Maia and Mana Wahine. Kia Maia is a

course for Year 9 students which focuses on wellbeing,

character strengths, use of money, cyber safety and

developing study and life skills.

The Mana Wahine course aims to promote strong Marian

women. Especially for year 12 students, the course

teaches wellbeing, study techniques, life skills, careers,

financial literacy and service.

Marian College has a strong commitment to providing

service to the community. Not only students, but staff

members are also actively involved.

Marian College staff members rolled up their sleeves

recently, to spend an afternoon participating in a range of

service activities including assisting at Christchurch City

Mission and St Vincent de Paul, cleaning up a beach,

gardening for the Beatitude sisters, making goods for

Christchurch Hospital’s neo-natal unit and other

children in need.

Southern Jam

Marian College’s Jazz Band travelled to the Southern

Jam Jazz Festival in Blenheim recently – taking part

in the showcase and celebration of the South Island’s

secondary school jazz bands. Marian College’s Jazz Band

performed at eight public venues and took home a bronze

award. Band director Frances Daly is a Marian old girl

currently studying at Ara Jazz School. Frances inspired

the Jazz Band to compose an original song ‘Dirty

Window’, which won Best Original Song at this year’s

Christchurch Jazz Festival.

Shave for a cure

Jesse Northcoat with Hairdresser from Hames Hairdressing

Congratulations to all those who

participated in Burnside High School’s 2017

‘Shave For a Cure’. On Friday the 25th of

August, a brave group of 20 students shaved

their hair to raise funds as well as awareness

for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand.

This organisation ensures all individuals and

families who are sadly faced with Leukaemia

& Blood Cancer are well supported. The

Left to right: Akshat Goyal, Josiah Edwin, Ryan Worsley

shave took place at lunchtime creating a

supportive atmosphere with many students

helping out. Large support from Burnside

High School’s community saw the team raise

over $5,900! A huge thanks goes to Hames

Hairdressing, Gray Ryburn, Jess Cliffe and

all the helpers for allowing this event to be

a success! Burnside High School is looking

forward to ‘Shave For a Cure’ 2018!

Table Tennis

Both our Boys and Girls Table Tennis teams

competed this year in the NZ Secondary

Schools Championships held in Palmerston

North. The Boys won the Open A grade,

beating Auckland Grammar in the final. The

Girls won the Girls grade, beating Macleans

College in the final.

This is the first time our Table Tennis teams

have attended the National tournament, and

possibly the first time in the history of this

tournament that one school has taken out both

titles.

NZ call-up for college captains

• By Andrew King

ST ANDREW’S hooker Shilo

Klein and Christ’s College centre

Isaiah Punivai have been named

in the New Zealand Schools

team.

Klein and Punivai both

captained their sides in the UC

Championship campaign and

caught the eye of national selectors.

Only five South Islanders

have been included in the New

Zealand Schools side set to play

three matches next month. ​

St Andrew’s sports co-ordinator

Rod McIntosh said it was a

well-deserved call up.

“He is a pretty special kid who

set goals at the start of the year

and has achieved them,” he said.

The New Zealand Schools Barbarian

side has also been named

and included Christchurch Boys’

High halfback Louie Chapman

and fullback/first-five Rico Syme,

as well as Christ’s College prop

Patrick Thacker.

Thacker, Punivai and Chapman

all have one more year of

secondary school to go, giving

them a rare opportunity to be

selected in either team again next

year.

New Zealand Schools takes

on Fiji Schools on Thursday, the

Australian Schools Barbarians

on Monday and the Australian

Schools on October 7. All games

will be played in Sydney.

The New Zealand Barbarians

Schools will meet Tonga Schools

on Monday and the New Zealand

Maori under-18s on October

7 in Palmerston North.

Jones in camp for NZ’s age

group World Cup challenge

St Andrew’s College

student Matt Jones has

been selected in the

New Zealand team to

compete at the under-17

World Cup in India next

month. Jones was in the

under-17 team which

competed at the Oceanic

Football Confederation

championship where they

won the title and qualified

for the World Cup. The

team left for India on Friday.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

SPRING ONION PANCAKES

Ingredients

250g Plain flour, plus extra for

dusting

80 ml Boiling water

70 ml Cold water

2 Tbsp Vegetable oil

1 bunch Spring onion, finely

chopped

1 tsp Sesame seeds

Directions

Put the flour in a bowl and

add the boiling water, stirring

with chopsticks. This is called

‘burning’ the flour. Give it a mix

and once it has cooled enough,

continue mixing with your hands.

Add the cold water, a quarter at

a time, and continue mixing.

When mixed thoroughly, take

the dough out of the bowl and

knead on a flour-covered bench.

You may need to add more flour

as you knead. Continue kneading

until the dough is shiny and your

hands and the bench are clear of

dough.

Roll the dough into a ball and

place in a bowl covered with cling

film. Seat aside for about half an

hour. Take a piece of dough about

the size of your fist and roll it out

on the bench into a circle about

15cm in diameter. Spread some

vegetable oil over the dough, then

sprinkle over the chopped spring

onion. Sprinkle over the sesame

seeds.

Roll the pancake into a tight

cylinder, then coil it around into

a circle (like a caterpillar rolling

itself into a circle). With a rolling

pin, flatten this circle into a

pancake again.

Add oil to your frying pan and

heat to a medium-high heat. Add

the pancake to the frying pan and

fry until golden, then flip and

cook the other side until golden

and crisp. Serve as a side dish

with chilli oil or chilli sauce or

your favourite Asian-inspired dip.

Also great at breakfast time.

APPLE AND PORK MINCE

PINWHEELS

Ingredients

500g Pork mince

2 tsp Sesame oil

1 tsp Chicken stock, powder

1 tsp Celery salt

2 tsp Fennel seeds

2 Tbsp Fresh parsley

1 tsp Fresh dill

2 cloves Garlic

1 Onion

½ Ambrosia Apple, finely diced

with skin on

2 Eggs, one for egg wash

750g Flaky puff pastry, ready

rolled

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C

fan bake.

Combine the first 10

ingredients in a bowl.

Mix in one egg.

Divide mixture evenly onto

four sheets of pastry, taking care

to ensure you leave some space

on each edge (about 2.5cm) for

easy rolling.

Lightly beat remaining egg for

egg wash and brush the edges to

help seal the pinwheel.

Roll each sheet from the long

end and cut each into four

pinwheels with a sharp knife.

Place on baking paper on

oven tray and egg wash the

pinwheels.

Sprinkle on sesame seeds.

Bake for 30min until golden.

Melanoma Deadlier

Than Road Fatalities

Summer is around the corner, and it brings with it the

temptation for some to “pre-tan” using artificial UV

tanning equipment; but is it really worth the risk?

More people die from melanoma

each year than are killed

annually in road crashes.

This statistic was part of

a comprehensive submission made to

parliament’s Health Select Committee which

is considering outlawing sunbeds for people

under the age of 18 years.

The submission was made by Accuro

Health Insurance, established in the 1970s as

a private insurer for the public health sector.

Today it trades as a private health insurer

with a widespread, general membership.

Accuro, in supporting the submission

made by the New Zealand Dermatological

Society, pointed to a New Zealand Cancer

Society figure of 324 deaths from melanoma

in 2010. According to the NZ Road Transport

Agency there were 253 road deaths for the 12

months to February 2014 and 303 for the 12

months to February 2015.

In highlighting the figure, CEO Geoff

Annals emphasised the serious nature of

the disease and his submission drew the

committee’s attention to the financial, social

and personal costs of skin cancer.

He quoted Cancer Society figures which

report that New Zealand, along with

Australia, has amongst the highest melanoma

rates in the world. In 2010 melanoma was

the fourth most common cancer with 2,341

registered cases and the sixth most common

cause of death from cancer.

The Cancer Society further reports that

skin cancer currently costs this country

about $123 million annually.

Geoff Annals says research by the Centre

for Disease Control showed the introduction

of seat belts reduced serious crash related

injuries and deaths by about half and banning

artificial UV tanning services is warranted

on the same public health grounds as the

compulsory seat belt legislation.

While Accuro’s submission related to a ban

for people under 18 years, it supports the

introduction of a total ban on commercial

artificial UV tanning.

“As a health insurer grounded in the public

health sector, we are strongly committed

to supporting the effectiveness of publicly

funded health services and better health

outcomes for all New Zealanders,” Geoff

Annals says.

A leading New Zealand dermatologist, Dr

Louise Reiche, who also made submissions

to the Health Select Committee, says she’s

treating many young people, especially

women in their 20s and 30s, with melanomas

resulting from commercial sunbed exposure.

She says clients typically lie naked on

their sunbeds and expose skin to radiation

emitted from UV lamps which can be up to

13 times greater than the peak summer sun.

She’s now treating people with cancer of the

genital skin which is more vulnerable to skin

cancer development.

“The medical profession is run off their

feet with people presenting themselves with

skin cancers causing the public health system

to be overwhelmed,” Dr Reiche says.

“The waiting list is three to four months

for urgent cases and, during the delay, the

cancers are growing. This results in poorer

health outcomes and more complex and

expensive procedures.”

Geoff Annals quoted Cancer

Society figures which report

that New Zealand, along

with Australia, has amongst

the highest melanoma

rates in the world. In 2010

melanoma was the fourth

most common cancer with

2,341 registered cases and

the sixth most common

cause of death from cancer.

VINTAGE TWIST ON

MODERN POP SONGS

THE sensational Scott

Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox

returns to the Isaac eatre

Royal this Sunday!

Furnishing a vintage twist

on modern pop songs, the

New York based collective is

back in NZ by popular

demand following two

successful tours over the last

two years.

Created by Scott Bradlee, the

rotating collective of

Postmodern Jukebox has spent

the past few years amassing

more than 600 million YouTube views and 2+

million subscribers, performed on “Good

Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard

charts and played hundreds of shows to packedhouse

crowds around the world. As NPR put it,

they've done this by “taking current Top 40 hits

and re-imagining them as coming from older

eras of popular music.”

The mastermind behind the group, Scott

Bradlee has turned Postmodern Jukebox into a

juggernaut by building an incredible grassroots

movement around the act. He continues to pick

the songs, create the arrangements and shows,

and puts together the performers - which

includes some notable names alongside

phenomenal "undiscovered" talent. e group

releases a new video every week, each one shot

Postmodern Jukebox is certainly a rebuke to

the contention that 'they don't make 'em like

they used to' - and there's something truly

special about witnessing their musical magic

live.

To echo Bradlee's own invitation: “Dust off

the turntable, fix yourself a stiff drink, and get

comfy. Welcome to the world of Postmodern

Jukebox.”

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox performs

at the Isaac eatre Royal this Sunday night.

You deserve a girl’s day out.

Join us at one of Christchurch’s largest events

If you’ve been searching for the perfect occasion for you

and your friends to get together, then here it is. The annual

Women’s Lifestyle Expo is back in Christchurch once more

with their biggest Expo yet.

Variety of companies involved –

something for everybody

With over 200 sites to browse,

unique businesses to discover,

shopping, bargains and laughter,

the Expo is the ultimate day out

for every woman and all ages.

One of the appeals the Expo

has to visitors is the variety

of companies involved with

everything from bamboo tooth

brushes to gourmet vodka.

Renee Murray from NZME

Events, organiser of the Expo

says “Our aim is to have as wide

of a range of companies involved

with the Expo as possible.

Women are all different and their

individual interests are so diverse.

One woman may love the latest in

makeup or is looking for childcare

options but the woman beside her

may be more interested in sampling

handmade cheese or discovering

travel and cultural experiences.

It’s great on the weekend to see

all the various women visit the

show, from teenagers to business

women, mothers to grandmothers

and friends simply enjoying each

other’s company. It’s becoming

Enjoy unique shopping to be found at Women’s Expo

With over 200 companies involved, it will be one of the

largest events held in the region and organisers expect many

thousand women to visit the Expo over the two days.

Renee Murray from Expo

Organisers, NZME Events says

“We will be bringing a fabulous

experience to the women of

Canterbury for one weekend.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see

so many wonderful companies and

do lots of shopping under the one

roof. Aside from having the best of

local companies exhibiting at the

Expo we have a large number of

national companies who will travel

to Christchurch from all around

New Zealand especially to show

local women their products. This

is a great chance for women to

stop, relax and spoil themselves

for one weekend”.

Brandhouse will return to the

Expo again with their range of

champagne, vodka, port and

wines. Popular last year was

the Royal Dragon’s elite flavour

vodka collection with some

flavours selling out. Introducing

the most tantalizing and unique

flavoured vodka collection of its

time, flavours include Watermelon,

Green Apple, Passion Fruit,

Chocolate and Lychee… a

great vodka collection to enjoy

neat, on the rocks or in your

favourite cocktail! Visit the large

Brandhouse site at the show to

sample from their fabulous range and

take home what you love.

A new exhibitor to the show is The Lip

Lounge, a new Christchurch based

business that can help you customize

your own lipstick in your favourite

shade. You can even bring in your

favourite lipstick that may have been

deleted or you want to replicate and

you can watch the girls at The Lip

Lounge mix and create your perfect

shade right in front of you.

A popular section of the show is

the large Artisan Craft Zone. With

some favourite companies appearing

every year and new companies

featuring, it’s the perfect spot to

find original crafts and creations.

Crafter Alexander will travel to

the show all the way from Marton

in the North Island to showcase

his range of handcrafted wooden

kitchen planters. These have

sold out at the past two Expos so

Alex is looking forward to seeing

the feedback from Christchurch

visitors.

Make sure you stop by the Artisan

Craft Zone at the show and meet

some talented small businesses.
