SOLUTIONS TO ongoing problems at

the Riccarton bus lounge will drag on

for some time yet.

The lounge, on the corner of

Riccarton Rd and Division St, has

been plagued with youth issues since it

opened in December 2015.

Western News revealed last week that

a number of recommendations from

a working party were to be discussed

at the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board meeting on Tuesday

night – including more police presence

in the area.

The working party consisting of board

members, business and landowners,

police, community groups and residents’

association representatives have made

recommendations, which the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community Board

received at its meeting last week.

Three recommendations were

approved by the community board and

will go to the city council for further

discussion.

These are an additional police

presence, a bylaw which would allow

arrests and instant fines to be issued and

continued assistance for business owners

when removing graffiti. The other 16

recommendations will come back to the

community board for discussion in a

month’s time.

EDITOR’S

WHAT AN election it’s going to

be on Saturday night.

The best and potentially the

closest in many years, and one

which will shape the country’s

future for sometime.

Star Media, publisher of the

Western News, will be following

the election on our website www.

star.kiwi and we’ll have reporters

out on the street and bringing

you latest updates through the

afternoon and into the night.

The Star on Thursday will also

have an in-depth election preview.

The polls clearly show people

have shifted to voting for either

National and Labour and this

could spell doom for many

smaller party politicians who

have made it into Parliament on

the back of MMP.

Indications are voter turnout

will be high and which ever party

mobilises its supporters best on

Saturday will win.

New principal ready to lead

Fashion


• By Emily O’Connell

ST THOMAS of Canterbury

College’s new principal is

looking forward to his big move

down the hallway.

Deputy principal and head

of sport, Steve Hart, will

be principal starting at the

beginning of next year. Mr Hart

has been deputy principal for

10 years and has been with the

Gardening

school for 13 years.

He will be taking over from

the current principal Christine

O’Neill – who announced her

resignation earlier this year.

Mr Hart said he feels really

grateful to be leading the school.

“It’s an amazing place here.

We produce top quality young

men and I feel privileged to lead

Motoring

them and the school,” Mr Hart

said.

He is looking forward to

working with the staff and

helping develop them as leaders.

Mr Hart said his favourite

part of his role as deputy

principal was working with the

students.

“I love coming to work each

day. The students are honest and

enthusiastic and they always put

a smile on my face,” Mr Hart

said.

LATE NIGHT THURSDAY

Starts 28th September - Open till 6.30pm

Mr Hart said his role as head

of sport was another chance

to help young men develop.

He said they received the best

results when they focused on

performance goals rather than

the outcome.

“I read a quote once which

said ‘sport is a great practise

for life’ and this is so true,”

he said.

Mr Hart said St Thomas of

LAwyERS

Canterbury’s improvement in

sport is 100 per cent down to the

hard work staff members put in

when coaching and taking on

other voluntary roles.

He said the future is bright for

the school.

Board of trustees chairman,

Andrew Steel, said they are

“pleased to have someone of Mr

Hart’s calibre to lead the school

into the next stage of college life,

building on the foundations set

by the current principal Mrs

Christine O’Neill.”

“One of his focuses has been

the embedding of restorative

justice practices which has been

challenging and ultimately

successful,” Mr Steel said.

The board of trustees are

yet to decide on who will be

replacing Mr Hart as deputy

principal.

Improving ways to get

people from home to work

Halswell

Residents’

Association

secretary David

Hawke writes

about Halswell,

recent changes

and its future

WE ALL know that Halswell,

towns and suburbs around

Christchurch’s west will keep

growing. So, we have to work out

how to get people from where

they live to where they work.

I’ve recently done some

counting at the Lincoln Rd and

Whiteleigh Ave intersection in

the morning rush hour. People

on bicycles make up nine per

cent of the traffic entering

Addington village, and 11 per

cent are on the bus. The rest of us

are in cars, and 80 per cent have

just the driver.

There are two ways of approaching

this problem. First,

the big solution. Forget the new

motorway; people I know in

Rolleston are eagerly awaiting

it so they can zoom into the

central city, so the motorway

won’t help. How about light rail

(i.e. a modern-day tram) along

Halswell and Lincoln Rds?

Addington folks I’ve spoken to

are enthusiastic because it would

enhance their community.

Alternatively, there could be

lots of little solutions. Did you

know that secondary school

principals will no longer take out

of zone students? This will cut

down the hauling that happens

every school day. Then, there

is continuing to grow the city’s

cycleway network, and e-bikes

may get to be really important

for longer commutes. Doubling

the frequency of the buses from

15 minutes to seven to eight

minutes would help too, but this

starts to look like a convoy.

What about car sharing?

Sadly, people these days often

don’t know their neighbours so

they are hardly likely to share a

car with a person living blocks

away. Applying a levy on sole occupancy

cars at rush hour might

encourage this sort of chumminess,

but does city council have

the political will?

So, we are left with politically

difficult alternatives. Pay for light

rail, or charge single occupancy

vehicles. Personally, I think city

council will go with the light rail.

Readers respond to the

article about a proposal

by Fendalton residents

to make Rochdale St

‘residents only’ to stop

drivers using it as a

shortcut, which was

declined by the city council

Megan Bowie – I think I’ll

make a point of driving down

there now, every chance I get.

The arrogance is strong with this

street.

Janine Hale – How is it a

‘shortcut’ when it is a legal public

road . . . surely it’s just one of

many routes to get to a destination?

Jennie Moreton – Every

nasty comment reflects the bias

of the posters who have made

judgements about the people

living in Rochdale St – probably

without meeting any of them.

For the record, I don’t live there,

I have taken the shortcut down

that street in the past and I don’t

think any public road should be

closed to non-residents.

Daniel Thompson – How

would they police that? They’d

have needed to ask for checkpoints

at both ends of the street.

Then are the enforcers there on

rotating shifts 24/7 or would it be

accessed via some kind of swipe

card?

Stephanie Hagerty – It’s

a street not a private road. You

knew that when you bought

there.

John Bartlett – Head out to

east Christchurch and look at the

state of the roads there. Shocking

and they moan about a bit of

traffic.

Clarissa Douglas – This

street and its residents have a

lot of issues . . . If you don’t like

it move, I’m sure there’s people

out there who would love to live

there and not moan.

Jennie Moreton – What a

lot of nasty comments. If you

don’t ask, you don’t get, so why

shouldn’t they try? Didn’t work

but what’s the harm?

Chelcie Tamaira – I just

find this hilarious. Sorry. Do

they want to be like a Hollywood

gated community? It’s so funny.

Bus lounge problems

• From page 1

Local businesses have

declined to comment on

the issue but community

board deputy chairwoman

Helen Broughton said the

situation is not ideal.

“It’s quite hard to pass

a lot of recommendations

at a board meeting. My

guess is we will have a

workshop on them first,”

Mrs Broughton said.

Community board

chairman Mike Mora said

he thinks the community

board is doing its best.

“We’re going as quick

as we can. There are laws

in place now if somebody

breaches trespass orders

the police are contacted,”

Mr Mora said.

No police were at the

community board meeting

but Constable Aaron Thorn

said “the city council talks

about trespassing, they

seem to think we have the

power to trespass anyone

from anywhere but we can

only trespass people from a

private area.”

“They seem to think

we have powers in the

problem is we have to

prove the person is about

to commit an offence

which can be quite

difficult,” Constable Thorn

said.

Removing WiFi is not

going to be solution to the

anti-social behaviour.

The community board

has taken away the word

‘removing’ and replaced

it with ‘using’ in the WiFi

recommendation.

The amended

recommendation reads

– The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community

Board request staff to

report back to the board

on the viability and

implications of using

the free WiFi from the

Riccarton bus lounge.

City councillor Vicki

Buck said the wording

needed to be changed

because the city council

is trying to extend WiFi

connections in central

city.

“Installing WiFi along

Riccarton Rd is a good

idea. WiFi is a basic thing

now. It should be on

buses. I’m not in favour

of removing access to the

internet,” Cr Vicki Buck

said.

WWE superfans

meet wrestling idol

• By Julia Evans

ZEINAT ALEBEL almost broke

down in tears when she met her

WWE professional wrestling

idol, Dean Ambrose.

The 18-year-old Sockburn

resident would describe herself

as a wrestling super fan.

Which was proved after she

and her sister Sofiya, 14, lined

up from 7am at The Hub Hornby

for the chance to meet Raw

tag team champion, Ambrose.

“My heart is racing,” she said.

Zeinat got Ambrose to sign

her cellphone, which she said

was now one of her favourite

possessions.

After the 3pm meet and greet,

the teens went to WWE Live at

Horncastle Arena – the only live

wrestling event in the country.

Zeinat said seeing WWE Live

was seven years in the making.

“Last time we saw them I was

11 and Sofiya was 7.”

But she said they’d both been

watching it on television for as

long as they can remember, if

not longer.

“I’ve been watching since

1999 and I was born in 1999,”

It might not seem like a place

Ruby saw the sculpture she

designed as part of the SCAPE

“It’s perfect. It’s exactly what I

she said.

The mammoth steel branch,

which will be fixed to a tree in

It’s not something he gets to do

Ruby won the chance to see

her sketches come to life after

winning the senior section of the

Re:ACTIVATE project.

“I don’t know how to explain

how it feels. It’s just really, really

The branch will be on display

for six weeks during the public

art season from October 7.

It will even feature as a stop

on the public walk, which takes

people on a tour of all the public

Break-in at taekwondo

club; gear stolen

Fashion


• By Emily O’Connell

A HEI Hei taekwondo club is

trying to make-do after gear was

stolen out of their shed last week.

Said KIX Taekwondo Christchurch

instructor, Jupiter Bignotea:

“Basically what was taken was

the gear that we use every day.

Gardening

We are a not-for-profit club so all

our funding is in the fees of the

students. When time accumulates

we will be able to buy some more

gear but getting all this gear will

take time,” he said.

The shed was broken into early

last Monday morning.

Forty-eight interlocking red

and blue mats, seven kick shields,

Motoring

eight paddle target pads, 16 focus

punch pads, two medicine balls,

a first aid kit, one boxing punch

bag, two agility ladders, two sets

of elastic bands, skipping ropes,

personalised screens and a novelty

gong were stolen.

Landlord, Tracey Buunk, said

Mr Bignotea is doing such a

Tasty Bites

good job with the club and it is

disappointing someone would

do this.

She said they have three sheds

and a container – which people

are working from because they

are building extensions.

“All the locks got cut off and

they went through items in the

other sheds but they took a lot of

Mr Bignotea’s stuff that he has

for the groups he runs – he runs

two sometimes three classes a

week. He has a good turnout of

local people, a lot walk to the

venue so this has really hit us

hard,” Mrs Buunk said.

Mrs Buunk said the estimated

$3500 of equipment was not

NINETEEN silver birch trees

in Halswell residents have

campaigned to be cut down will

not face the axe.

John and Gillian Gartly along

with neighbours down Rempstone

Drive have been seeking

approval to cut the trees down

for 10 years.

Last week the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board

agreed with the staff recommendation

to leave the trees.

Mr Gartly described the

whole situation as a “typical city

council farcical, giving people

the concept they have some say,

when they really don’t, because

the decision is already made.”

Mr Gartly who has lived on

Rempstone Drive for nearly two

decades, said the trees cause

two problems for the residents

– they’re a nuisance and a

health risk. He thinks his wife’s

allergies are caused by them.

Community board deputy

chairwoman, Helen Broughton,

said: “If people come back as

a group, I’m happy to open it

up again. They have put a lot of

effort in to getting it this far. We

can come back to this if we need

to.”

Community board member

Debbie Mora questioned the

health risks of leaving the trees

on the residential street but

was reassured by city council

arborist Jonathan Hansen.

“Someone needs to prove that

the trees are the sole cause,” Mr

Hansen said.

Mr Hansen said they received

advise from the Canterbury

District Health Board and this

is the best they can do given the

circumstances.

Mr Gartly said they will

determine their next step

once they receive a copy of the

community board resolution.

Money

“Now is the moment we’ve been

waiting for. It’s time. This is our

opportunity to build a better, fairer

future for New Zealand. To fix our

healthcare, grow our economy,

respect our environment and to look

after our towns as much as our cities.

It’s time to change things for the

better. I’m ready. We’re ready.”

As your local Member of Parliament, I listen to

people, work hard and get things done. We need

affordable housing, better mental health services

and truly swimmable rivers and lakes. I want to

be part of a Labour-led government that delivers

these things for all New Zealanders.

Disability group struggling for volunteers

Old library becomes thriving Halswell community hub

• By Emily O’Connell

THE OLD Halswell Library

building has been turned into a

new community hub.

Earlier this year, the Halswell

Community Project, along

with Community Development

Network Trust and Kiwi Church,

put a proposal to the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board and city council for the

use of the old library.

The proposal was successful

and a lease for the building on

381 Halswell Rd was given in

June.

Halswell Community

Project co-ordinator Kate

Cleverly said the building

will have a community

focus.

“We plan to establish a

collaborative community

Other groups using the

Dot Johnston said the

group only has three volunteers

make sandwiches,” she said.

“I would prefer to be in with

She has been with the group for

He said the set took about

a year to create. “I got some

St Thomas’ league talent on trial

• By Andrew King

ST THOMAS’ Seth Tauamiti

and Jordan Riki have been

named in the New Zealand

Resident 18s team.

The team will compete

in a trial against Taurahere

– which is made up of

New Zealand-born players

currently plying their trade

in Australia – on Saturday in

Auckland.

A New Zealand 18s

team will be selected from

the match to take on the

Australian Schoolboys later

this month.

The last time a New Zealand

18s fixture took place was in

2015.

St Thomas’ league coach

Andrew Auimatagi said both

lads have a heap of potential

and it is great to see it being

recognised.

“They thoroughly deserve

it and have done really well. It

is great to see two young guys

able to start to make a career

out of it [league],” he said.

Tauamiti plays second row

in league and No 8 in union,

while Riki is a utility back in

both codes. Both play for the

St Thomas’ league team and

featured heavily in the school’s

first XV.

Celebration Lions second

row/centre Daniel Sakisi was

also included in the side. He

also played in the Shirley Boys’

High first XV team this year.

Prop takes conversion

in last game of season

• By Andrew King

ST THOMAS’ first XV prop

Tommy Taualai was given the

last opportunity of the season to

put points on the board with a

conversion attempt on Tuesday

against Oamaru’s St Kevin’s

College.

In the dying seconds of the

game, the year 13 student lined

up a kick from near the lefthand

touchline, as St Thomas’

supporters ramped up the

volume in an attempt to will the

kick over.

St Thomas’ won the game

38-12, running in six tries in

their final hit-out of the season,

reclaiming the G. Airey Cup in

the process.

The two schools have been

competing for the cup since

1961 in what has been a pretty

even tussle.

Theo Fowler, Sione Afemui,

Seth Tauamiti, Elisara Vaifale,

Cormack Tarrant and Patrick

Elia all grabbed five-pointers in

the win.

St Thomas’ attack coach Paul

Burton said it would appear

Taualai “really enjoyed the opportunity”

to try slot the conversion

from the sideline.

“It is not a normal thing, you

know, if there was a lot riding

on the points our regular

kicker would have taken it,” he

laughed.

In case you were wondering,

Taualai’s kick only just missed.

It was a great effort though, said

St Thomas’ deputy principal

Brendan Biggs.

Directions

Season schnitzel with salt

and pepper and lay on a work

surface. Arrange two slices of

mozzarella on one half of each

schnitzel and top each with a

heaped teaspoon of pesto.

Fold the empty side of each

schnitzel over to cover the filling

and secure by threading

two toothpicks through each

schnitzel parcel. Heat a non-stick

frying pan, add a film of oil and

place schnitzel parcels in the

pan. Cook over a medium heat

HEALTH & BEAUTY

New branding,

new products

for family-run

health food co

The family-owned and locally operated

New Zealand Health Food Company

(NZHF) has seen steady growth since its

launch in 1988.

The company was founded by Rob

Haines as a way to introduce indigenous

products and nutritious ingredients

to New Zealand and the rest of the

world. He began creating product

lines that took advantage of New

Zealand’s diverse landscape and

pristine ocean waters, including two

collections of natural supplements,

Kiwi Natural Health and New Zealand

Health Food. These were followed by

KNH, another natural supplement line,

along with Manuka South, which includes

products that focus on the healing powers

of honey.

Now NZHF is introducing some new

products – including a long-awaited

new line of Manuka honey – and also

rebranding itself to reaffirm its place

as one of the country’s most popular

providers of supplements, super foods and

skincare.

The rebranding is designed to reflect

the growth NZHF has experienced since

its inception, with the company’s mission

being to continue providing a one-stop

shop for health-focused, high-quality

products including supplements, super

foods, skincare products, sports nutrition

and weight management, as well as

essential oils.

Many are produced using locally

sourced ingredients, with the company’s

exports helping to introduce the rest of

the world to the health benefits offered by

the nutrient-dense offerings that are part

of New Zealand’s diverse landscape.

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

GO-Advanced

Omega-PC

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times, new

research has shown that neurons can grow

back with the right conditions and that a

special extract of Gingko Biloba (EGb-761

or TEBONIN) has been clinically found to

assist in this. The implications for stroke

recovery are obvious, but researchers also

know many of us suffer from undetected

“micro-strokes” that over a period of time

slowly reduce our cognitive function.

TEBONIN is prescribed worldwide as a

natural supportive agent for a healthy brain

and cognitive function. It supports healthy

mental performance, concentration, focus,

alertness, motor function and to help

with many conditions including tinnitus

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

BOOST BRAIN

PERFORMANCE UP TO 30%

TEBONIN is the No 1 Ginkgo Biloba extract in the World with more than 8 million tablets

being consumed every day. It is also the most researched herbal extract with more than 60

controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent

efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30

years to support blood flow, capillary health, brain health & performance.

Studies on TEBONIN Show:

- Improved Brain Performance & Function up to 30%. This includes improvement

in mental sharpness, focus, attention, concentration, understanding, memory & recall.

- Reduces errors made & mental stress.

- The only Ginkgo shown to increase activity in all areas of the brain. Can help restore

brain function after a brain injury such as from a stroke.

- Helps relieve tinnitus (ringing & noise in the ears), vertigo, dizziness & supports normal

balance.

- Improves blood flow to all areas of the body.

- Reduces plaque formation in the blood vessels.

- Protective effect against eyes damage caused by light.

micro-circulation and helps the blood flow

reach those critical places it needs to get to.

It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes the

red blood cells more pliable and capillary

walls more flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented multistep

extraction process. Each small tablet

contains a highly concentrated 50:1 extract

to give you a therapeutic clinical dose

without having to take a large amount of

the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba products on

the market, and tested by a major medical

journal, only TEBONIN passed all five of the

test requirements. Ten brands didn’t meet

any requirements and the rest didn’t pass

more than three out of five requirements.

TEBONIN is the only Gingko biloba

extract shown to activate all areas of the

brain and is considered the gold standard

in Gingko. TEBONIN has been trusted by

millions of consumers worldwide for over

30 years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!

Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally

contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the

It is well known how important omega-3

fatty acids are to good health. It is estimated

most people don’t even get a third of the

recommended omega-3 fatty acids on

a weekly basis. Countries with a higher

Fish oil can help reduce inflammation

by providing essential fatty acids required

by the body to heal itself and maintain

good health. Until now most fish oil

only contained omega-3 fatty acids in

triglyceride form. Fish, however, naturally

contain omega-3 in triglyceride and

phospholipid form but until recently the

phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new

standards in fish oil as it contains

omega-3 attached to both triglycerides

and phospholipids. Studies have shown

GO-Advanced Omega-PC to be far better

absorbed, leading to increased levels of

vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs

through giving the potential for more

health benefits.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced

from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish

using a new advanced and more natural

cold extraction process that better preserves

the natural nutrient profile found in fish. It

is manufactured to high GMP standards

and is molecularly distilled to remove any

containments, toxins and heavy metals.

Further info on this revolutionary new

fish oil and its benefits is available from

Kids love CASPA!

A child who’s ‘a

little different’

Children who are just ‘a little different’ – perhaps they’re

clumsy, have difficulty writing or tying shoelaces, or

prone to ‘meltdowns’, and struggle to fit in.

To interpret and function in the world

we need to accurately process information

from our environment.

Some children’s nervous systems

may receive, sort and use information

inaccurately (sensory processing) causing

them to either under or over reaction to

a sensation, or actively seek or avoid a

sensation.

This may cause distress for the

child, family and teachers,

as coping with everyday

experiences like

noisy classrooms,

the feel of fabric,

or moving in a

coordinated way

may present huge

challenges. It can

influence behaviour

and interfere with

learning, doing

everyday activities or

simply fitting in.

No child is the

same, each have

their own individual

difficulties.

Therapy Professionals Therapists

may be able to help improve the life

of these children and those around

them. Contact us at 3775280 or

www.therapyprofessionals.co.nz.

CASPA (Creative After School

Programmed Activities) incorporating

PAPA JACKS offers children the

opportunity to be creative, make new

friends and try new experiences all within a

safe, nurturing environment. CASPA offers

working parents an affordable after school

and school holiday programme that their

kids just love!

CASPA attributes its success to the

variety of activities on offer as well as the

convenience and affordability for parents.

CASPA kids enjoy an exciting range of

activities including sports, music, games,

drama, arts and craft as well as fun trips.

Previous themes and activities have included

a Karaoke Dance Party, CASPA Fear Factor,

Healthy Art, Out of Africa and hundreds of

other amazing themes/activities!

CASPA parents enjoy peace of mind,

knowing their kids are safe and enjoying

the benefits of a quality after school

programme. Some parents and caregivers

also enjoy government subsidies for

CASPA. CASPA is Child Youth and Family

approved for the OSCAR Subsidy and in

some circumstances, the full CASPA fee

will be covered by the subsidy.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

charity show featuring Kevin Kearns (John Rowles); Tony

Gregory-Hunt (Roy Orbison); Brian Skinner (Elvis); Barry

Cro (Neil Diamond); George Tanner (Barry Gibb); Chrissi

Williams (Patsy Cline) and Ray Harris (e Shadows).

Expert backing will be provided by Neville Wilkins & the

Viscounts with special guest band e Pistons.
