So when the Bromley sisters headed to the America’s Cup victory parade last week, they weren’t going to leave her behind. Jade Bromley tucked Pippi into her puffer jacket to keep her warm, and headed to the central city from their Huntsbury home with sisters Ashley and Holly. They, along with about 6000 people braved the freezing rain, wind and sleet on Wednesday to celebrate Emirates Team New Zealand’s America’s Cup triumph in Bermuda. The 18-year-old said in spite of the cold, Pippi didn’t seem to mind being there. She said their parents were huge sailing fans, and had encouraged them to head along to catch a glimpse of the team and the Auld Mug.

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER Lack of aquatic facility a barrier for wider Linwood • By Bridget Rutherford HAVING NO local swimming pool is the biggest barrier for those living in the wider Linwood area, a new survey has found. The Linwood Development Aspirations: Our Social and Recreational Hopes survey interviewed 499 people living and working within a 1.5km radius of the centre of Linwood Park. The findings, released last week, showed overwhelming support for a pool to be built in the area. The city council has allocated about $20 million to build a pool over the next three years. But it has not yet been determined how big it would be, or where. The survey, carried out last year, asked what people currently did for fun, what activities they would like to be doing, the barriers stopping that, and what would make it possible. In total, 103 people said they would like to take swimming lessons. But about half of those said they could not because there was no aquatic facility in the area. •Turn to page 5 HIKING BOOTS FOR KIDS GANNET PEAK RRP $99.95 OUR PRICE $59.95 Great range of winter shoes instore now… 47c Garlands Road, Woolston Phone 389 3431 www.thefootwearfactory.co.nz House of Hearing STAY WELL NATURALLY GO VIR-DEFENCE offers powerful immune support this winter with its nine clinically proven ingredients.
