Bittersweet win for St Andrew’s big band • By Sophie Cornish THE ST Andrew’s College big band had extra incentive to win at the National Youth Jazz Competition – bass player, Tom Fastier, collapsed and died the day before the competition began. “Tom was a bass player from Cashmere High School who was playing with our big band this year. He had a strong chance of winning best bass player at the festival as he was a very accomplished musician,” head of music Duncan Ferguson said. “We were delighted to win, but it was bittersweet,” he said. St Andrew’s won the most outstanding big band title at the competition in Tauranga. The band dedicated its set to Tom, who died while on his way to Cashmere High on March 27. His death was possibly related to a medical event. •Turn to page 9 call 332 4004 TexT 027 537 0567 230 BarringTon sTreeT www.denturesouth.co.nz Board launches petition to get new community facility • By Sophie Cornish and Julia Evans THE PAPANUI-Innes Community Board has taken the rare step of starting a petition to fight the city council over funding. Signatures are being collected in a bid to get funding for a community facility in Shirley. It comes after the city council removed funding for the centre planned for Shirley Rd, near the intersection with Hills Rd. This was the site of the former community centre, which was badly damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The removal of funding prompted community board chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten to stand down, citing it as her “die in the ditch” project. Ms Jones said the board’s role is to represent the community, and by gathering signatures from residents, it was fulfilling that role. “One of the roles of a community board is to represent and act as advocate for the interests of its community and this is what we are doing. The LTP and annual plans are all about lobbying the council.” •Turn to page 5 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored... Restore your oiled CEDAR BLINDS with our re-oiling service.
