Safety improvements planned<br />

at entrance to shopping centre<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

RESIDENTS describe the<br />

Barrington shopping centre<br />

entrance as an intersection were<br />

you ‘take your life into your own<br />

hands.’<br />

But after a battle which has<br />

lasted ‘some years’ the city<br />

council is finally asking for<br />

feedback on proposed changes to<br />

make the area safer.<br />

Spreydon Neighbourhood<br />

Network chairwoman Sonya<br />

Hodder said the group had<br />

tried time and time again to<br />

spur action to improve the<br />

intersection.<br />

“We are feeling really very<br />

grateful that the money has been<br />

set aside to do it,” she said.<br />

The proposed changes<br />

included installing a wider<br />

footpath in front of the library,<br />

stopping motorists turning<br />

right out of the entrance onto<br />

Barrington St, extending a<br />

pedestrian refuge and creating<br />

a patterned footpath across the<br />

access to the shopping centre to<br />

highlight a pedestrian route.<br />

In June a video survey<br />

concluded that about 115<br />

pedestrians crossed the<br />

entranceway at the peak time<br />

between 4pm and 6pm.<br />

Mrs Hodder lived on<br />

Barrington St and often visited<br />

the mall but said she avoided<br />

using the main entrance at all<br />

costs.<br />

“I’ve seen so many near misses.<br />

I’ve even seen a cyclist who<br />

has been knocked off his<br />

bike.”<br />

But she said some concerns<br />

raised by residents regarding<br />

narrow footpaths were the mall’s<br />

responsibility.<br />

“The mall’s problem is that<br />

they’ve got very little room<br />

because they must provide<br />

so many parks to meet their<br />

resource consent requirements,”<br />

“I won’t say who said, but<br />

somebody mentioned that they<br />

probably wouldn’t be allowed to<br />

have the mall there if they were<br />

applying now.”<br />

City councillor for the<br />

Spreydon Ward Phil Clearwater<br />

said the biggest issue in moving<br />

forward was getting all involved<br />

parties to agree on solutions.<br />

“I think the big thing is<br />

the mall management people<br />

being prepared to work with<br />

city council and the residents.<br />

I think it’s fair to say that they<br />

weren’t early on. But the current<br />

mall managers has been really<br />

co-operative and collaborative in<br />

working with different groups.”<br />

But Barrington shopping<br />

centre manager Jill Kearns said<br />

she did not think she and her<br />

staff had caused any delays in the<br />

process.<br />

“I don’t know why they would<br />

say that. We’ve worked with the<br />

She said the reason it had<br />

taken several years to come up<br />

bureaucratic system at the city<br />

council.<br />

“It all has to go through a<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

DO I feel a sense of civil war looming<br />

between the good folk of Cracroft and<br />

Hoon Hay?<br />

Hopefully not.<br />

Cracroft people have been successful in<br />

getting the name Hoon Hay off their rates<br />

invoices - (see page 3).<br />

It may be a bone of contention for those living further west<br />

from Cracroft, in the suburb of Hoon Hay.<br />

A staff member here at Star Media who lives in Hoon Hay<br />

is fairly adamant Cracroft isn’t a suburb in its own right, and<br />

therefore is part of Hoon Hay. You could feel him bristling.<br />

But he’s not the type to take up arms, or incite a call to bring<br />

Cracroft back into the fold.<br />

But he can’t speak for others.<br />

Cracroft residents win name battle<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

CRACROFT residents<br />

have won their battle not to be<br />

referred to as Hoon Hay on their<br />

rates bills.<br />

From this week, the bills will<br />

have Cracroft in the address<br />

section.<br />

In May, the Spreydon-Cashmere<br />

community board heard<br />

concerns from the Cracroft Residents’<br />

Association as their rates<br />

and valuations bills listed them<br />

as being a part of Hoon Hay, or<br />

Hoon Hay Valley.<br />

City councillor for the Spreydon<br />

Ward Phil Clearwater said<br />

Cracroft was a registered suburb<br />

and should be referred to as such.<br />

“It’s on the map as a suburb,<br />

so I think it’s fair to say the mail<br />

TIES CUT:<br />

Cracroft<br />

residents will no<br />

longer receive<br />

rates bills with<br />

a Hoon Hay<br />

address.<br />

addressed to them should be<br />

addressed correctly . . . they were<br />

upset.”<br />

He said he had previously<br />

SYNONYMOUS:<br />

Cracroft House,<br />

also known as<br />

the Old Stone<br />

House, is a<br />

central part of<br />

the Cracroft<br />

area.<br />

dealt with a similar situation in<br />

Somerfield.<br />

“It’s a bit tricky because there<br />

was this whole thing about<br />

where does Beckenham end<br />

and Somerfield begin, and then<br />

Spreydon? We had to be careful<br />

about how we dealt with it.”<br />

He said the city council actually<br />

had a policy to define suburbs<br />

so that residents’ associations<br />

would not clash.<br />

“The advantage of that was it<br />

meant that one residents’ group<br />

area was quite clear about which<br />

residents they should work with,”<br />

he said.<br />

“At times, of course, there was<br />

a bit of intruding on other associations’<br />

patches, and that<br />

was why the policy was drawn<br />

up.”<br />

City council transactions manager<br />

Paul Curgenven said the<br />

confusion around Cracroft were<br />

due to unclear borders.<br />

“While Cracroft is the only<br />

suburb in Christchurch that has<br />

been geographically defined by<br />

the NZ Geographic Board, there<br />

was not an exact boundary for<br />

the suburb.”<br />

He said a correction of the<br />

rates and valuation bills would<br />

be implemented this week.<br />

Save the park petition delivered to Parliament<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

A PETITION asking that<br />

Redcliffs School return to its<br />

former Main Rd site has been<br />

delivered to Parliament.<br />

Christchurch Central Labour<br />

MP Duncan Webb presented the<br />

200-signature petition on behalf<br />

of Friends of Redcliffs Park.<br />

The petition has been referred<br />

to the Education and Workforce<br />

Select Committee to consider<br />

when it meets later this month.<br />

It calls for urgent legislation<br />

enabling the school to reopen on<br />

the former Main Rd site and to<br />

spare it from being demolished.<br />

Friends of Redcliffs Park<br />

spokesman Chris Doudney<br />

said he was hopeful the select<br />

committee would consider the<br />

H. C. Cairns – I write in<br />

support of returning Redcliffs<br />

School to its original site<br />

on Main Rd. Redcliffs Park<br />

is totally unsuitable for the<br />

school to be built for the<br />

many reasons already given<br />

in previous correspondence<br />

from other people – prone<br />

to flooding, smaller than the<br />

original site, threat of tsunamis,<br />

objections from householders<br />

CONTROVERSIAL: Redcliffs Park where Redcliffs School will<br />

be relocated.<br />

petition “before they demolish<br />

the school.”<br />

Demolition work is expected<br />

to commence later in the month.<br />

adjacent to the park, traffic<br />

problems etc. It would be much<br />

simpler and cheaper to move<br />

the existing buildings on the<br />

main site forward and have<br />

playing fields at the rear near the<br />

cliff which has been stabilised<br />

and has a bund there for safety<br />

purposes.<br />

Jenny and Bernie Godden<br />

– It is nearly 20 years since<br />

my wife and I drove through<br />

Mr Doudney said the committee<br />

was able to bring findings to<br />

Parliament to be debated and<br />

potentially acted upon.<br />

Redcliffs en route to<br />

Sumner during our first<br />

trip to New Zealand<br />

from the United<br />

Kingdom. Do you<br />

know what still sticks<br />

in our minds? Yes,<br />

the Redcliffs School<br />

buildings. They ranked among<br />

the finest of Christchurch<br />

buildings, even before the<br />

earthquake. Over the years, we<br />

Port Hills Labour MP Ruth<br />

Dyson was not asked to take the<br />

petition because she had indicated<br />

since 2016 that the school’s<br />

shift to Redcliffs Park was a<br />

“done deal”, said Mr Doudney.<br />

He also said Port Hills National<br />

list MP Nuk Korako was not<br />

asked because he had been a<br />

“strong proponent of the new<br />

school,” and Port Hills Greens<br />

list MP Eugenie Sage wasn’t well<br />

known to Friends of Redcliffs<br />

Park.<br />

Meanwhile, clearance activity<br />

at Redcliffs Park has been halted<br />

as archaeological work takes<br />

place.<br />

Ministry of Education head of<br />

education infrastructure service<br />

Kim Shannon said clearance had<br />

stopped while a specialist team is<br />

have been impressed<br />

by this country’s regard<br />

for its heritage. So you<br />

can imagine our shock<br />

when, as recent residents<br />

of Sumner, we look on<br />

at the destruction of<br />

this beautiful asset. We<br />

ask ourselves “why?” We have<br />

not met a single resident who<br />

supports this bizarre scheme.<br />

Who is responsible for this<br />

Local<br />

News<br />

Now<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

on site undertaking archaeological<br />

investigations.<br />

The area is of particular archaeological<br />

interest because it<br />

was the site of some of the earliest<br />

known Māori occupation of<br />

the South Island.<br />

Areas of interest are being<br />

excavated by hand, Ms Shannon<br />

said. “This will ensure any<br />

historic material is recovered,<br />

catalogued and recorded and<br />

that the construction of the new<br />

school is not delayed.”<br />

Information regarding the<br />

inhabitation of the area and any<br />

artefacts recovered will be published<br />

by Heritage New Zealand<br />

once it is complete.<br />

Ms Shannon said the research<br />

had been planned from the outset<br />

of the project.<br />

Readers respond to the ongoing saga over Redcliffs School<br />

decision? The motive? It must<br />

be financial. Surely that is the<br />

only possible answer? So who<br />

stands to gain? Mmm. We plead<br />

that those who have made this<br />

decision search deep into their<br />

souls and ask: “Is this the right<br />

way, or will I forever have this<br />

act of destruction on my mind?”<br />

Heritage lost forever, lost to the<br />

next generation, and the next . . .<br />

oh, dear. Gone.<br />

Steven Adams: My Life, My Fight<br />

by Steven Adams<br />

For the first time, Steven Adams shares the story behind his meteoric rise from<br />

the streets of Rotorua to his emerging stardom in the NBA.<br />

Adams overcame the odds to become a top prospect in the 2013 NBA draft.<br />

From there he went on to secure a four-year contract with the Oklahoma City<br />

Thunder - making him New Zealand’s highest-paid sportsperson ever - and forge<br />

a reputation for his intense, physical style of basketball.<br />

In this intimate account of his life story so far, the seven-foot centre reflects on<br />

his humble upbringing, the impact of his father’s death when he was just 13, the<br />

multiple challenges and setbacks he has faced, early career-defining moments,<br />

and what basketball means to him.<br />

Told with warmth, humour and humility, My Life, My Fight is a gripping account<br />

from one of New Zealand’s most admired sporting stars.<br />

Life on the Road: Kiwi Trucking Stories<br />

By randolph Covich<br />

Kiwi truckies are the unsung heroes of New Zealand - the men and women who<br />

make great personal sacrifice to keep our country running. The people who<br />

devote their life, in some way or another, to what is often a hard and lonely<br />

passion.<br />

Life on the Road gathers together their fascinating stories.<br />

It captures the humour, tragedy, action and extremes of the trucking world,<br />

moving between the dramatic, light-hearted and surprising - including runaway<br />

trucks, skirmishes with the law, nostalgic tales of the early pioneers, love stories,<br />

and more than one practical joke.<br />

Whether you’re a trucking die-hard or just love the wide open road and a<br />

cracking good yarn, Life on the Road is a gripping insight into the real lives of<br />

Kiwi truckies.<br />

<strong>View</strong> from the South<br />

By Owen Marshall<br />

A stunning collection of poems from one of New Zealand’s most<br />

respected writers.<br />

David Eggleton wrote of Marshall’s poetry in the New Zealand Listener that,<br />

‘Above all, the poems are redolent of the South Island – all wild winds and<br />

dry hills, sleepy summer afternoons, the shimmer of light on lakes, snow like<br />

whitewash on the Alps.’ In addition his poetry captures the voice and perspective<br />

of the South Island, whether it is contemplating family or friends, love or<br />

mortality, the local landscape or further afield, through place or time.<br />

This collection brings together Marshall’s most powerful poetry from his previous<br />

three collections with many more recent works. They are complemented by<br />

photographs taken by his friend and fellow Mainlander Grahame Sydney.<br />

‘They are an exquisite marriage of musicality, observation, elegance and<br />

economy. Certain words stand out in his lines like the glint of light on wet<br />

ground.’<br />

How Craig Heatley Became a Top New Zealand Entrepreneur.<br />

Craig Heatley was still at high school when he created a subdivision on the back<br />

of $200 saved from his paper round. A few years later, building a mini-golf<br />

course launched a business that in 1986 saw him become the youngest person<br />

to have then featured in the National Business Review’s Rich List.<br />

But it is Sky Television that was his boldest and most precarious undertaking.<br />

The fledgling company teetered in the early nineties as rugby suffered its own<br />

crisis, torn between its amateur heritage and the forces of professionalism.<br />

Heatley could see the answer. Making it happen is part of his story.<br />

‘Craig built businesses that New Zealanders wanted before we knew we wanted<br />

them.’<br />

Green light for waterfront build<br />

Long-awaited<br />

decision may<br />

help others<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

AN OUTCOME to whether<br />

people can build in parts of<br />

Redcliffs could have a flow-on<br />

effect for others in the same<br />

situation.<br />

Section owner Wendy<br />

Gilchrist said she was “greatly<br />

relieved” that an independent<br />

hearing panel granted her<br />

resource consent to build on a<br />

waterfront site in Main Rd after<br />

a year-long wait.<br />

Following the decision, city<br />

council acting head of resource<br />

consents Andy Christofferson<br />

wrote in a memorandum to<br />

Mayor Lianne Dalziel, the<br />

panel’s ruling would be “valuable<br />

in shaping city council officers<br />

thinking on this matter going<br />

forward.”<br />

The decision was made the day<br />

after more than 100 residents<br />

met with Christchurch Coastal<br />

Residents’ United to hear about<br />

issues being faced by coastal<br />

property owners when trying<br />

to get resource and building<br />

consents.<br />

HOT TOPIC:<br />

About 100<br />

people<br />

packed into<br />

the Redcliffs<br />

Bowling Club<br />

to discuss<br />

the effects of<br />

climate change<br />

on property.<br />

RELIEF: Resource consent has been granted to build on this<br />

waterfront section in Redcliffs.<br />

The meeting looked at how<br />

1486 sites in a Restricted Unit<br />

Overlay within the High Flood<br />

Hazard Management Area are<br />

being treated by city council<br />

planners.<br />

Most of the sites are in<br />

Redcliffs, South Brighton and<br />

Southshore.<br />

CCRU says a restricted<br />

discretionary activity rule for<br />

properties inside the RUO – a<br />

rule recommended by the<br />

replacement District Plan<br />

independent hearings panel<br />

– was altered when the plan<br />

was implemented last year,<br />

and people wanting to build<br />

or extend are now getting into<br />

difficulty with city council<br />

planners.<br />

“The final city council<br />

produced hearing documents<br />

omitted the key paragraph that<br />

made the RUO effective,” CCRU<br />

chairman Simon Watts said<br />

Artisan Homes<br />

Builders of superior homes. Built to last.<br />

at the meeting. However, the<br />

city council rebutted Mr Watts’<br />

claim.<br />

Said city council head<br />

of planning and strategic<br />

transport David Griffiths:<br />

“The Christchurch District<br />

Plan contains the restricted<br />

discretionary activity rule . . .<br />

as decided by the Independent<br />

Hearings Panel in their Decision<br />

53.”<br />

Question marks remain over<br />

whether owners will be able to<br />

build within the RUO – a subset<br />

of more than 1400 properties<br />

where the hazard is from sea<br />

level rise, not river breaches<br />

– after the hearing panel said<br />

Mrs Gilchrist’s consent was an<br />

exception and “cannot in any<br />

way create a planning precedent<br />

for applications on sites in other<br />

parts of the Residential Unit<br />

Overlay.”<br />

Last month Labour MPs Ruth<br />

Dyson, Duncan Webb and Poto<br />

Williams met with members of<br />

CCRU and Dr Latham to discuss<br />

the problem and a potential<br />

remedy.<br />

Ms Dyson said after that<br />

meeting they had agreed to do<br />

further investigations before<br />

making a decision on “what<br />

intervention, if any, is necessary<br />

or appropriate.”<br />

Fight<br />

starts to<br />

keep<br />

fireworks<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

COASTAL AND Burwood<br />

wards councillors David East<br />

and Glenn Livingstone have<br />

pledged to fight against the<br />

annual New Brighton fireworks<br />

event being taken away from the<br />

pier.<br />

They say they will work hard<br />

to retain the New Brighton Guy<br />

Fawkes in the area.<br />

It comes after the event has<br />

come under scrutiny from the<br />

city council as part of a city wide<br />

review of all council- run events.<br />

It confirmed last week the<br />

event would go ahead in November,<br />

and if there were to be<br />

any changes, they would not be<br />

implemented this year.<br />

Cr East said he would be<br />

debating strongly and working<br />

hard to persuade other city<br />

councillors of the merit and<br />

worth of retaining a display on<br />

the coast. He said the items he<br />

would be stressing is the event<br />

makes for great viewing, all fireworks<br />

land in the sea, making it<br />

easy to clean up and no one is at<br />

risk of being hit, he said.<br />

Cr Livingstone said the<br />

fireworks should stay. “The<br />

question has been raised before<br />

over safety concerns but my<br />

view is wherever you hold the<br />

fireworks there is going to be<br />

safety concerns that need to be<br />

addressed anyway.” He said he<br />

suspects council would be faced<br />

with a unanimous resolution<br />

from the Coastal- Burwood Community<br />

Board to keep the event<br />

where it is. City council community<br />

support, governance and<br />

partnerships John Filsell said<br />

last week for a number of years it<br />

has received feedback on traffic<br />

management congestion.<br />

But Cr East said while there is<br />

difficulties for traffic exiting the<br />

event, the east has been compounded<br />

by ongoing roadworks.<br />

Street Wise pot luck dinner for Waltham homeless<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

STREET WISE is providing help<br />

of a different kind to the city’s<br />

homeless.<br />

Merivale’s River Jayden helped<br />

found the charity three months<br />

ago while working as a building<br />

apprentice in the central city.<br />

The charity is ramping up its<br />

efforts and held a community<br />

pot luck for homeless whanau<br />

in Waltham on Saturday at nonprofit<br />

cafe, Exchange Christchurch.<br />

The function, called Everybody<br />

Eats provided free haircuts, barista<br />

training, care packages and<br />

baking, motivational speakers,<br />

dinner and an open jam session.<br />

Ms Jayden said she eventually<br />

wanted Street Wise to provide<br />

a transitional facility to support<br />

people to move into permanent<br />

housing.<br />

The charity provides food,<br />

clothes and advocacy for those<br />

sleeping rough. “We’ve been going<br />

for three months and it’s been<br />

pretty full on,” said Ms Jayden,<br />

who is the charity’s chairwoman.<br />

“We give the guys coffee, cakes,<br />

chats. It’s the fun stuff mainly,<br />

but through that we can also find<br />

out about their situation and refer<br />

them on to housing programmes<br />

or drug and alcohol support.”<br />

While homelessness is<br />

“definitely” a big problem in the<br />

central city, there is a less visible<br />

homeless population living on<br />

the outskirts that people may be<br />

less aware of, Ms Jayden said.<br />

“It’s those sleeping on couches,<br />

in garages, in cars. It’s a massive<br />

issue – 41,000 people experience<br />

homelessness in New Zealand.<br />

Of them, most are living with<br />

whanau and friends in overcrowded<br />

homes.”<br />

She said a small percentage<br />

of homeless people sleep on the<br />

street. Funding to support the<br />

work Street Wise does is tight,<br />

but Ms Jayden said “there are<br />

creative ways to find the money<br />

to do these projects. I’m confident<br />

we can make it happen. We have<br />

a good amount of support from<br />

investors.”<br />

DEAF WOMAN Jocelyn Thorpe<br />

has never learned sign language.<br />

So when the opportunity came<br />

up for the pre-school teacher<br />

to learn it with her pupils, she<br />

jumped at the chance.<br />

Ms Thorpe and the children<br />

at Haven Early Learning Centre,<br />

in Linwood have been learning<br />

the basics of New Zealand Sign<br />

Language with the help of van<br />

Asch Deaf Education Centre tutor<br />

Victoria Green.<br />

She said the pre-school welcomed<br />

her with open arms when<br />

she took up her teaching position<br />

at the centre.<br />

“The children have just accepted<br />

me as who I am, not<br />

necessarily as a deaf person, but<br />

just as Jocelyn.”<br />

Ms Thorpe, who could hear<br />

with the help of a cochlear implant,<br />

said learning sign language<br />

could help the children be more<br />

accepting of hearing-impaired<br />

people in their community.<br />

“It has been wonderful, actually,<br />

because they are just so<br />

receptive to learning another way<br />

of communication. And they<br />

seem even more intrigued to find<br />

out that it can help a person that<br />

Jocelyn Thorpe, who is deaf,<br />

Zealand Sign Language with<br />

the pre-schoolers.<br />

Local<br />

News<br />

Now<br />

Pre-schoolers learn sign language with deaf teacher<br />

has got a hearing impairment,”<br />

she said.<br />

“They know that if somebody<br />

has a hearing impairment<br />

. . . they need to use their sign<br />

language.”<br />

The youngsters had picked up<br />

sign language really well, and<br />

could all sign their name. “We<br />

don’t have high expectations, we<br />

let children learn at their own<br />

pace. So some are quite happy<br />

to use just a few signs, others are<br />

happy to do a few more. We just<br />

celebrate what they have learnt.”<br />

Ms Thorpe said parents often<br />

sat in on the sessions to join their<br />

children in learning sign language,<br />

which encouraged them to<br />

use it outside of pre-school.<br />

The idea to kick start sign language<br />

lessons at the centre came<br />

from teacher Clair McConchie.<br />

Ms McConchie said it was important<br />

for the children to learn<br />

NZSL, not only to communicate<br />

with hearing impaired people,<br />

but also to use sign as a way of<br />

expressing themselves.<br />

“They know signs like ‘hungry’<br />

and ‘thirsty’ . . . so they can communicate<br />

every day sentences by<br />

using their signs.” She had been<br />

learning sign language herself<br />

for the past three months, and<br />

wanted to share what she had<br />

learnt with the children.<br />

“More people should learn (sign<br />

language). I hope it catches on to<br />

other pre-schools; it’s so important,<br />

it just bridges that gap in the<br />

deaf community.”<br />

Souvlaki King<br />

“Delicious and<br />

Satisfying!”<br />

souvlaki is now available in Halswell<br />

Souvlaki King “Delicious and<br />

Satisfying!” has drawn crowds from<br />

far and wide with rave reviews for their<br />

delicious Egyptian menu options. Two<br />

recent additions to their menu is their<br />

snack boxes and shawarma which are<br />

big hits with their lunch crowd.<br />

“All our ingredients are locally<br />

sourced, and we buy our meat from<br />

a local butcher which we then cut<br />

up ourselves. Only the freshest,<br />

produce and meat will be served to<br />

our customers.” The owner states<br />

confidently.<br />

Stop by today and try their well-known<br />

Falafel which is the result of their own<br />

special recipe. Their Falafel is made<br />

fresh daily and try to guess and figure<br />

out the difference in their secret recipe<br />

that makes it so yummy tasting.<br />

The locally owned Souvlaki King<br />

is owned by a couple who are<br />

experienced hospitality business<br />

operators. They decided to open a<br />

‘Emotional’ dance<br />

earns Cashmere HS<br />

students recognition<br />

ACHIEVEMENT: Cashmere<br />

High School students were<br />

awarded second place<br />

for their performance at<br />

Showquest <strong>2018</strong>.<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

BATTLING AGAINST depression and<br />

anxiety served as inspiration for an<br />

‘emotional’ dance.<br />

A group of students from Cashmere<br />

High School were placed second, after<br />

Darfield High School, at this year’s Showquest<br />

in Christchurch.<br />

On Tuesday, year 12 students Sophie<br />

Harris and Dani Damm helped lead their<br />

40-strong team in a dance which focused<br />

on mental health.<br />

“We wanted to show a day in the life<br />

of someone who suffers from depression<br />

and anxiety,” Dani said.<br />

“We wanted to show that it was okay<br />

to have good days and bad days, and that<br />

you can get through the bad days, it’s<br />

okay that they’re there.”<br />

The pair said they wanted to communicate<br />

through their dance that it can affect<br />

anyone at any time.<br />

“We wanted to get the audience to really<br />

feel it as well,” Sophie said.<br />

“It’s not something that you can just<br />

dance through and it’s not something<br />

that you can just hope will go away and<br />

clear up, there is a real battle behind it.”<br />

They said there were “quite a few injuries”<br />

during the nine weeks of rehearsals,<br />

including one girl who hurt her knee and<br />

ended up watching the performance from<br />

a wheelchair in the audience.<br />

But in spite of a few bumps in the road,<br />

Sophie said the group were ‘stoked’ to be<br />

a part of Showquest.<br />

“Even before performing and getting<br />

second place, we were all pretty stoked<br />

with the way it turned out. It was emotional<br />

. . . we had a bit of a cry before we<br />

went on stage.”<br />

And Dani said she was ‘amazed’ by the<br />

performance first place winners Darfield<br />

High School.<br />

“Darfield, oh my gosh their piece was<br />

incredible. They really did shine that<br />

night, it was amazing.”<br />

Showquest was staged across the country<br />

this year, with an overall national<br />

winner to be announced in September.<br />

WINNERS: Cashmere High School first XI football captain Alex Meaclem,<br />

left, receives the Connetics Challenge Shield from St Thomas of Canterbury<br />

captain Tom Stewart after Cashmere’s 2-1 win.<br />

Cashmere claim<br />

football shield<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

THE CASHMERE High<br />

School first XI boys<br />

football team are the new<br />

holders of the Connetics<br />

Challenge Shield after<br />

beating St Thomas’<br />

of Canterbury 2-1 on<br />

Wednesday.<br />

It is the first time in<br />

more than two years they<br />

have had it in their trophy<br />

cabinet.<br />

The shield is played<br />

for between Canterbury<br />

secondary school football<br />

teams and is premier<br />

competition’s Ranfurly<br />

Shield equivalent.<br />

Cashmere started<br />

brilliantly against the<br />

competition’s top team<br />

with an early goal to Axel<br />

Tritt from a free kick<br />

by Eddie Wilkinson<br />

Cashmere then took<br />

control of the first half<br />

with Jake Grove scoring a<br />

brilliant goal to Cashmere<br />

2-0 up.<br />

St Thomas’ came out<br />

strong in the second half<br />

and did pull one goal back<br />

but Cashmere held on for<br />

the remainder of the half.<br />

Coach Craig Squire said<br />

his team’s effort and desire<br />

on defence had been a<br />

positive so far this year.<br />

“While Cashmere teams<br />

in the past have always<br />

been team which could<br />

score goals, often our<br />

defence was quite leaky,”<br />

he said.<br />

This season, Cashmere<br />

has scored 37 goals and<br />

conceded just seven.<br />

Squire said the aim<br />

of his team was to win<br />

the competition and he<br />

believed after that result,<br />

the team would gain<br />

plenty of confidence.<br />

Cashmere are now<br />

second on the ladder,<br />

three points behind St<br />

Thomas’ but with a game<br />

in hand.<br />

Cashmere High School<br />

will play Christ’s College<br />

tomorrow in their next<br />

competition fixture.<br />

Small co-ed classes at St Michael’s<br />

Is your child one of 15 or 50? Is their<br />

classroom calm and productive<br />

or a disharmony of noise and<br />

movement? How much of their<br />

teacher’s attention does your child<br />

actually receive?<br />

At St Michael’s, our small co-ed classes<br />

and specialist teachers ensure your child is<br />

an individual, well known by staff and fellow<br />

pupils alike. For at the heart of St Michael’s<br />

are the essential values of Christian faith<br />

and good citizenship: respect, integrity,<br />

faith, hope and love.<br />

St Michael’s is a prep school so your<br />

child is assured of a traditional foundation<br />

in English and Mathematics. This<br />

academic rigour then underpins our wider<br />

curriculums in Science, History, Geography<br />

and Spanish. IT literacy is taught, not<br />

assumed, and computer use is measured.<br />

We like teaching and talking to our pupils!<br />

Cultural and sports’ programmes<br />

develop your child’s foundation further,<br />

as creativity and problem-solving come<br />

in many forms. Specialist art and music<br />

classes are enjoyed weekly; and most pupils<br />

play at least one instrument, whether piano<br />

or flute, bassoon or bongos. There are two<br />

choirs, and drama lessons.<br />

And our extended campus is spectacular:<br />

today, the Art Gallery; tomorrow, the<br />

Gardens; next week…<br />

St Michael’s has been nurturing and<br />

educating children for 167 years, and our<br />

pupils come from city-wide, arriving via<br />

the bus exchange only a block away or<br />

with parents who work in the thriving city<br />

centre.<br />

You and your child are warmly welcome<br />

to discover for yourselves our purposeful,<br />

wholehearted and inclusive prep school.<br />

Our Open Day is Wednesday 15 <strong>August</strong> or<br />

Cathedral Grammar<br />

The Cathedral Grammar School is an<br />

independent school providing high-quality<br />

education for pre-school, primary school<br />

and intermediate aged girls and boys.<br />

This is a place of ambition alongside<br />

preparation where students learn from the<br />

best right from the start. Every year level<br />

benefits from the expertise of our highcalibre<br />

specialist teachers across multiple<br />

subjects. And small class sizes means a<br />

lot of individual attention so every child’s<br />

strengths are identified and built on and<br />

support provided where and when needed.<br />

Our school structure is unique and<br />

designed to ensure students have the<br />

opportunity to make the most of their<br />

formative school years. We understand<br />

learning happens in different ways at<br />

different ages; our students work in both<br />

co-educational and single-sex learning<br />

environments at times when this best suits<br />

their learning styles. In Pre-School and<br />

the Junior School children learn in a coeducational<br />

environment. Students in Years<br />

4 to 8 attend either our Boys’ or Girls’ School.<br />

Allowing students the best of both worlds,<br />

single sex classes offer the opportunity to<br />

target and deliver the curriculum in the<br />

most effective and interesting style possible,<br />

while social skills are developed by sharing<br />

mixed-environment break times, specialist<br />

classes and activities.<br />

Creativity and culture play a<br />

big role here with four choirs and<br />

hundreds of individual music,<br />

speech and drama lessons every<br />

week. We’re also a proud sporting<br />

school, providing students with<br />

the facilities and encouragement<br />

to try their hand at a range of<br />

sports and recreation activities.<br />

Ultimately, we are committed<br />

to providing a balance of<br />

tradition and rigour, while being<br />

curious and adventurous every<br />

day.<br />

Let the learning<br />

adventure begin<br />

SCHOOL OPTIONS - early & middle years 2019<br />

Middle schooling<br />

makes a difference<br />

Having a curriculum and learning<br />

environment designed specifically for<br />

learners in the “middle years” (Years 7-10) is<br />

essential to ensure high levels of motivation<br />

and engagement in learning during this<br />

crucial stage of schooling.<br />

At Hillmorton High School having a<br />

consistent approach without a transition<br />

to a new school between Year 8 and 9 is<br />

proving to be positive in terms of<br />

accelerating student learning within<br />

the Middle School.<br />

We are currently working with<br />

our architects designing a new<br />

Middle School building with 22<br />

“General Learning Areas”. These<br />

areas are flexible and can operate as<br />

single cell classrooms or be opened<br />

up to allow more open learning<br />

spaces – the best of both worlds.<br />

This building will not disrupt<br />

learning as it is being built on the<br />

current tennis courts.<br />

This environment fits well<br />

with our broad Middle School<br />

curriculum allowing learners to<br />

explore and find both their strengths<br />

and passions.<br />

The advantage of combining<br />

the skills of Year 7 and 8 specialist<br />

teachers with the subject specialists<br />

of a high school gives our Middle<br />

School learners a huge advantage.<br />

Additionally, our “Big Day Out”<br />

events and end of year student<br />

electives allow our young people to learn in<br />

a range of environments often participating<br />

in social action such as planting, working<br />

with the elderly, along with exploring the<br />

city, the Art Gallery and the university.<br />

Our Middle School is ensuring real<br />

educational success and positive future<br />

prospects as students move into the Senior<br />

School for Years 11-13.<br />

Providing<br />

our students<br />

with learning<br />

and personal<br />

growth<br />

opportunities<br />

At St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School,<br />

our mission is that we are “choosing<br />

to be an innovative, catholic learning<br />

community that inspires and empowers<br />

learners to succeed.”<br />

We are committed to inspiring and<br />

empowering students for success,<br />

through the implementation of innovative<br />

instructional practices, leveraging digital<br />

technology, ensuring equity of access for<br />

all.<br />

We offer a range of sporting and cultural,<br />

innovative and creative opportunities.<br />

Teaching and learning experiences are<br />

personalised for our students and value<br />

student voice.<br />

Within our new flexible learning spaces<br />

every child has the opportunity to learn<br />

through authentic contexts, solving real<br />

world problems.<br />

Together we continue to innovate within<br />

a Catholic learning environment where all<br />

learners are inspired to learn, create and<br />

share. We are creating learners who will<br />

not only be successful but will become<br />

people who will positively impact on their<br />

world.<br />

Selwyn House School -<br />

small class sizes and talented<br />

teaching staff<br />

For primary school, every parent wants<br />

to ensure their child is receiving the best<br />

foundation for their academic future.<br />

Selwyn House School has small class sizes<br />

and a talented teaching staff set within a<br />

nurturing environment and an extensive<br />

range of opportunities.<br />

Selwyn House offers the International<br />

Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years<br />

Programme (PYP) and is proud to be a<br />

leading STEAM focused school. We not only<br />

encourage our girls to work in advanced<br />

STEAM fields, we want our girls to lead<br />

them. Our STEAM Hub provides every<br />

student from Year 1 to 8 access to stateof-the-art<br />

equipment. In Mechatronics,<br />

girls learn the foundations of mechanical<br />

and electrical knowledge. Robotics is<br />

introduced as an interdisciplinary, projectbased<br />

learning activity drawing mostly<br />

on mathematics, science and technology.<br />

Learning is also enhanced by additional<br />

opportunities including the <strong>2018</strong> Space<br />

Camp trip where 18 girls will travel to the<br />

United States to attend a week-long Space<br />

Camp.<br />

A supportive all-girl learning<br />

environment encourages girls to take<br />

risks without fear of failure. As the girls<br />

progress they are confident in their<br />

abilities, understanding that perseverance<br />

helps them grow. A school-wide buddy<br />

programme provides each girl with support<br />

and mentoring.<br />

Learning is personalised and each<br />

teacher has the time to foster authentic<br />

and meaningful relationships. Strong<br />

relationships between the class teacher and<br />

family ensure each girl’s learning journey<br />

is nurtured by a partnership of support.<br />

Teachers construct learning activities<br />

to help each girl identify their personal<br />

strengths.<br />

Selwyn House believes these strengths<br />

can be applied to academic tasks<br />

and become more powerful with the<br />

acquisition of skills and knowledge, aiding<br />

intellectual development and academic<br />

achievement. For this reason core learning<br />

in reading, writing and mathematics is<br />

a priority. Specialist teachers in Spanish,<br />

Mechatronics, Art, Science, Physical<br />

Education, Swimming, Performing Arts<br />

and Music work with classroom teachers to<br />

help identify the strengths of every girl.<br />

The environment at Selwyn House<br />

empowers each girl to embrace their future<br />

and develop a love of learning. A Selwyn<br />

House girl will learn to define herself,<br />

accept responsibility, form opinions,<br />

and have compassion for the world. This<br />

combination of achievement, confidence,<br />

and character makes a Selwyn House<br />

education a powerful and transformative<br />

experience.<br />

ON THE MOVE: St Thomas footballer Hamish Cooper is one of two Christchurch<br />

United teenagers set to train with Sydney FC.<br />

Cooper gets shot<br />

with Sydney FC<br />

ST THOMAS’ footballer<br />

Hamish Cooper is one<br />

of two Christchurch<br />

United stars set to get<br />

an invaluable taste of<br />

professional football at<br />

Sydney FC, the glamour<br />

club in the A-League.<br />

Cooper and St Andrew’s<br />

player Riley Caswell,<br />

who both just turned 17<br />

but already play for the<br />

Christchurch United first<br />

team, have been invited<br />

to train with the Sydney<br />

club. Sydney FC were last<br />

season’s A-League minor<br />

premiers and losing finalists<br />

and won the A-league<br />

in 2017.<br />

The opportunity arose<br />

through the contacts of<br />

Christchurch United head<br />

coach Fernando Lambert<br />

who coached at Manly<br />

United in Sydney for five<br />

years. He also spent four<br />

months as an apprentice<br />

coach at Sydney FC with<br />

Robert Stanton, who runs<br />

the club’s first team and<br />

young league side.<br />

Lambert says that both<br />

players have a big potential<br />

and the Yaldhurst-based<br />

Christchurch United<br />

wants to give its players<br />

the best opportunities to<br />

develop.<br />

“This may not be ideal<br />

for our club as they will<br />

miss a few games, but<br />

our club is focused on<br />

developing great players<br />

for the future and for New<br />

Zealand football, and not<br />

just looking at short-term<br />

results,” said Lambert.<br />

“This trip to Sydney will<br />

show our youngsters the<br />

next level they need to be<br />

aiming for and what is<br />

required in a professional<br />

environment.”<br />

Caswell headed over on<br />

Sunday to train with the<br />

Sydney first team, which<br />

is the feeder team for the<br />

A-League squad and regularly<br />

trains with the club’s<br />

superstars.<br />

The central defender<br />

feels he has earned this<br />

opportunity with his performances<br />

in Christchurch<br />

United’s first team.<br />

“I’m definitely excited<br />

and slightly nervous, but<br />

I’m grateful to have the opportunity<br />

to travel across<br />

to Australia,” said Caswell.<br />

“It is a great opportunity<br />

to experience what football<br />

is like in other countries<br />

and to compete against top<br />

players”<br />

Cooper will go over the<br />

following week to spend a<br />

fortnight with the Sydney<br />

FC Academy squad.<br />

The right fullback is<br />

grateful to Christchurch<br />

United and coach Fernando<br />

Lambert for giving<br />

him first-team experience<br />

at 16 and to open the doors<br />

to overseas opportunities.<br />

“The move to Christchurch<br />

United had definitely<br />

paid off because I am not<br />

sure if I would have had<br />

those opportunities at<br />

my previous club,” says<br />

Hamish who is pursuing a<br />

career in football, as player<br />

or coach.<br />

“At Sydney FC, I want<br />

to compare myself to the<br />

other players my age in<br />

Australia to see where I<br />

need to improve,” said<br />

Cooper.<br />

Grape seeds<br />

shown to have<br />

remarkable<br />

health benefits!<br />

According to researchers grape seeds<br />

may hold the potential to treat and prevent<br />

many devastating disorders. The seeds<br />

have been found to contain many powerful<br />

antioxidant that have been shown to<br />

support the natural healing process and<br />

even slow the aging process.<br />

Grape Seed Extract (GSE) has been shown<br />

to reduce inflammation, pain, increase<br />

cell energy, protect protein structures and<br />

increase collagen production. The powerful<br />

antioxidants can tone and strengthen<br />

the blood vessels, improve blood flow,<br />

making it valuable for circulatory disorders<br />

of all kinds, including varicose veins,<br />

haemorrhoids, hardening of the arteries<br />

and impaired blood flow to the brain. It<br />

is excellent for most skin conditions with<br />

many noticing the skin becomes smoother.<br />

GSE offers a natural alternative for many<br />

people with hypertension. (High Blood<br />

Pressure) Higher B/P puts more stress<br />

on organs and can lead to atherosclerosis<br />

(hardening of the arteries) and increased<br />

risk of heart disease and strokes.<br />

Recent studies on people with elevated<br />

B/P found GSE to significantly lower B/P<br />

but with no effect on people with normal<br />

B/P. Animal studies have shown GSE to<br />

improve heart function, reduce damage<br />

caused by heart attacks and prevent arterial<br />

plaque.<br />

A growing number of studies show that<br />

GSE has powerful anticancer properties,<br />

can help balance blood sugar, improve<br />

arthritis and protect brain cells. It may prove<br />

vital in the treatment of brain disorders like<br />

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.<br />

Numerous studies on GSE show it can<br />

help support our good health and prevent<br />

many degenerative diseases. Further<br />

1 in 2 people<br />

deficient in B12<br />

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and<br />

as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.<br />

Scientists at Rush University Medical<br />

Center found those most deficient<br />

in vitamin B12 to have the smallest<br />

brain mass and the lowest scores on<br />

tests measuring short-term memory,<br />

concentration and brain performance.<br />

Another study showed that older people<br />

with higher levels of B12 in their blood<br />

have bigger, healthier brains and score<br />

higher on cognitive tests than those with<br />

lower levels. Yet another recent landmark<br />

study showed that B12 supplementation<br />

slows the accelerated rate of brain<br />

shrinkage and declining cognitive function.<br />

B12 is essential for energy production, cell<br />

health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles,<br />

nerve health and repair, and prevention<br />

of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular<br />

risk factor that is known to cause damage<br />

and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also<br />

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard<br />

researchers found<br />

a 34% decrease<br />

risk of vision<br />

loss in a study<br />

of participants<br />

aged 40+ who<br />

supplemented with<br />

B12. Another study<br />

Supplementation of methylcobalamin B12 has been shown to reduce the rate of brain<br />

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that can also damage the hearing,<br />

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.<br />

The reason so many people lack B12<br />

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb<br />

it declining with age as the digestive<br />

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux<br />

medication and other drugs further reduce<br />

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in<br />

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual<br />

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and<br />

thru bypassing the digestive tract have<br />

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in<br />

the body.<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Choosing the<br />

right heat pump<br />

for your home<br />

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,<br />

most homes include at least one heat pump,<br />

if not a whole heating solution. They can<br />

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more<br />

convenient than a log burner as you just need<br />

to press a button. But how do you decide what<br />

is best? Choosing the right sized heat pump is<br />

key to ensuring optimum comfort levels. Every<br />

situation varies and it is therefore important<br />

to get professional advice from heat pump<br />

experts.<br />

The range varies from wall mounted high<br />

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,<br />

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted<br />

central heating systems allowing you to have a<br />

very discreet way of heating your whole home<br />

to a constant temperature throughout.<br />

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that<br />

is suitable for the size of the space you wish<br />

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to<br />

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area<br />

taken into consideration but also, insulation,<br />

building orientation, windows and ceiling<br />

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps<br />

available with different heating outputs so it<br />

is important to select the correct size for your<br />

requirements that will handle the job but not<br />

be unnecessarily overpowered.<br />

Secondly, the location of your heat pump<br />

is also extremely important. The cheapest<br />

installation is a back to back where the outdoor<br />

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor<br />

unit however this is not necessarily always<br />

the best option. It is vital that the indoor<br />

unit is positioned in a place that will not be<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is<br />

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people<br />

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly<br />

in their outdoor entertaining area or right<br />

outside their bedroom window.<br />

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands<br />

have come and gone over the years but there<br />

are a number of manufacturers who provide<br />

reputable and reliable products. All brands vary<br />

in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems<br />

and price, so it depends on your application as<br />

to which will be most suitable. Major brands<br />

such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin,<br />

Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands<br />

backed up by good technical after sales service.<br />

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an<br />

accredited installer. This will not only ensure<br />

correct installation of your heat pump, but also<br />

validate the manufacturers warranty.<br />

Other things to consider when choosing a<br />

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the<br />

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi<br />

capabilities.<br />

Heating is a major investment in your home<br />

and it is vital to get the right advice.<br />

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,<br />

installation and servicing of all major brands<br />

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers<br />

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as<br />

to which system will suit your application<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Get rid of<br />

dampness<br />

in your house<br />

Now with the colder and wetter weather on<br />

its way, home owners are focusing on ways<br />

to make their homes comfortable, warm and<br />

healthy for their families throughout winter.<br />

Rising damp is an issue that affects many of<br />

our older properties which suffer from poor, or<br />

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,<br />

many people have relocated to homes<br />

that suffer from rising damp which can be<br />

associated with health problems. Independent<br />

tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can<br />

rise from the ground and enter a house every<br />

day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation<br />

and musty smells. Moulds can produce<br />

various allergic reactions and the<br />

frail, elderly and very young are<br />

especially vulnerable.<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete<br />

Ltd is a locally owned and<br />

operated firm. The team<br />

understands the problems<br />

caused by rising damp and are<br />

there to help. They will come<br />

to your damp home and pump<br />

a lightweight, flowable foam<br />

concrete under your timber<br />

floored home. Specially adapted<br />

for our New Zealand conditions and<br />

applications it provides a layer of protection<br />

against rising moisture. An unexpected<br />

benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam<br />

Concrete have noticed recently, is that many<br />

owners of properties which had underfloor<br />

foam concrete installed, reported that it also<br />

provided protection against liquefaction after<br />

the earthquakes.<br />

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd<br />

now for your free, no obligation quote and<br />

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor<br />

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or<br />

Smooth-Air Products Ltd, supplier of<br />

ventilation equipment to trade and retail<br />

is proud so many staff members have been<br />

happy to stay with the company for so long.<br />

Recently Jason Hansen was awarded<br />

with his 20 year certificate by Allan Doak,<br />

Managing Director, who set up the company<br />

in 1990. Jason started as a teenager in 1998<br />

as general hand and now is very skilled<br />

at manufacturing castellated spigots and<br />

Madonna Cowls.<br />

Over the past 28 years, Smooth-Air staff<br />

have grown in numbers from two to over 80.<br />

Eleven of whom have worked for Smooth-<br />

Air for at least 10 years. Their certificates<br />

are proudly displayed in the Head Office<br />

entrance.<br />

Jason with his certificate for 20 years<br />

employment with Smooth-Air.<br />

Of the 23 Christchurch Workshop team<br />

members, seven have been there for over ten<br />

years, making for a very experienced team<br />

manufacturing a wide variety of ventilation<br />

equipment.<br />

Several other staff have been with<br />

Smooth-Air since near the beginning,<br />

even if not continuously, such as Russell<br />

Warnock, who was a great innovator during<br />

the early years and is now back in R&D.<br />

Also, Paul Shaw, who worked with Allan<br />

even prior to Smooth-Air, and has been in<br />

the Ventilation industry for nearly 40 years.<br />

Paul is now Smooth-Air’s HVAC Product<br />

THAT’S right folks! DND Showband returns<br />

to the Hornby Club this Saturday with the<br />

original line up.<br />

“We’ve had a lot of fun putting this show<br />

together, ”said Jo-Anne Davern, performer<br />

and manager of the band. “It’s been a good<br />

couple of years since this line up last<br />

performed together and I’m amazed at how<br />

simply we all slotted back in place. It’s like<br />

we were never apart.”<br />

Joining Jo on stage will be regular<br />

members Ben Harvey (guitar, vocals); Grant<br />

McPhie (bass, keys); and Mark Newburn<br />

(drums, vocals), along with showband<br />

chanteuses Michele Webb, Gina Gilbreath,<br />

and Mel Lawson.<br />

Christchurch based DnD Showband has<br />

been delighting audiences across the<br />

country with their multi-tribute theme<br />

shows for an incredible ten years. In<br />

rehearsal mode for Saturday’s show, the 7<br />

piece troupe has been busy fine tuning show<br />

content, sorting costumes and tightening up<br />

moves.<br />

“We’ve put together a great play list<br />

guaranteed to get everyone up dancing.<br />

We’re opening with a set of 50s/60s tunes,<br />

followed by our Moulin Rouge theme set<br />

that brims with disco dance anthems of the<br />

70s/80s, and concluding with our tribute to<br />

ABBA,” said Jo. “And for those who prefer to<br />

listen and watch, our professional tech’s<br />

Peter Standring and Peter ‘Pedro’ Buchan-Ng<br />

will be out front running our audio and<br />

light systems to ensure it sounds and looks<br />

wonderful.”<br />
