EXTENDED ROAD barriers

are being installed in some parts

of the red zone to stop illegal

rubbish dumping and boy racers

from destroying the vegetation.

They will also create tighter

security in the area. In early 2016,

barriers were placed

across roads in the

red zone to deter

anti-social behaviour

and illegal

rubbish dumping.

“The barriers

were designed to

allow pedestrians

and cyclists access

to the area but to

keep vehicles out. Unfortunately,

some drivers continued to bypass

the barriers by mounting the

footpath and driving around

them,’’ said city council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas.

“Once past the barriers, they’re

using the area as a dumping

ground for their rubbish, which is

unacceptable,” he said.

IT’S NO mean feat to win a club rugby

league grand-final.

Prop Alex Todd has now been part of

the last three winning Linwood sides, was

named man of the match for the second

year in a row, and he scored a late try to

steal victory from the underdogs, Hornby.

That’s fairly impressive.

On page 16 today, we talk to Todd (no relation to another

great Linwood forward Brent Todd).

He was awarded the Mel Cooke Memorial Trophy for the

man of the match.

Cooke was a star of the game during the 1960s. He played 23

tests for the Kiwis and was named in the New Zealand Rugby

League’s team of the century.

Not a bad sort of a trophy to hold.

Redcliffs Park group ‘not confident’

• By Matt Salmons

A PETITION to try and

reinstate Redcliffs School to its

original site will be tabled in a

do-or-die meeting tomorrow.

Community group Friends of

Redcliffs Park has been fighting

for urgent legislation to prevent

Redcliffs School’s relocation to

the park since 2016.

A 208-signature petition

from the group was referred

to Parliament’s workforce and

education select committee last

month. A decision whether to

take the matter further is likely

to be made tomorrow.

Group spokesman Chris

Doudney said it was hard to

feel too confident about the

petition’s fate considering the

fight so far.

“I’d say we’re not very

confident at all. But who knows

though.”

It comes as Friends of

Redcliffs Park is waiting on a

report expected from the office

of the Ombudsman in March.

Mr Doudney made a

complaint against the Ministry

of Education to the Ombudsman

on behalf of the group on June

22 last year, noting the urgency

of the request.

“They said it would be ready

in March, but still nothing has

happened. Then they said it

would be in a couple of weeks in

April, then in May, then in June.

“In the meantime, the

Ministry goes ahead to demolish

the school,” Mr Doudney said.

In a letter sent to the

Ombudsman on August 17,

Mr Doudney said the group

was “very concerned that your

office is taking excessive time to

release your report.”

He said he understood the

Ombudsman could not direct

the Government to take action

with regard to the report, but

said the report would support

the petition in allowing the

group to take its concerns to

Parliament.

Christchurch Central Labour

MP Duncan Webb presented the

petition to Parliament on behalf

of Friends of Redcliffs Park in

July.

Depending on the outcome

of today’s meeting, the select

committee may ask for more

information from the submitters

and arrange hearings of the

evidence from both sides.

If that happened, a report

would be prepared and used to

advise their recommendations

to Parliament.

In response to Mr Doudney’s

letter, Chief Ombudsman Peter

Boshier said the investigation

WAITING GAME:

Chris Doudney

was “well advanced” but had

raised a number of complex

issues.

“All of this has taken quite

some time and consideration.

My office has been in regular

contact with Mr Doudney

regarding the progress of this

investigation. I appreciate there

is significant local interest in

this issue and it is my intention

to progress matters shortly. I

know this is important,” Mr

Boshier said.

Designs for the new school,

set to be built in Redcliffs Park,

were released last month, with

construction expected to start at

the end of the year.

“I gave it a go last year and

wasn’t successful, so I tried again

this year. It was a motivation to

see how you faced off against your

contemporaries,” Mr Ravn said.

The regional competition

involved building something from

scratch in just two hours. Mr

Ravn built a tool box.

“Having to deal with your

nerves and having to deal with

industry leaders, I definitely think

it was a massive thing you need

to overcome. So different to when

you are working on site.”

After finishing high school, Mr

Ravn started a fine arts degree

at Canterbury University before

training as a carpenter.

“I like making things, so I

thought I would give it a go and

I really enjoyed it and here I am

now. In Christchurch, there was a

lot of demand.”

“The building industry is amazing.

And we do things that other

people can’t do, we create, and you

get paid to learn. Definitely give it

a go and see where you stand.”

Mr Ravn will take part in the

national competition in Auckland

on November 9.

Helen Clark - Women, Equality, Power

Selected Speeches from a Life of Leadership

By Helen Clark

A celebration of an outstanding leader who continues to strive and work for

change, and it’s a rallying call for other women leaders, whether they are in

positions of political, economic or social power.

Helen Clark has been a political leader for more than 40 years, since first

running in local elections in the 1970s. She entered parliament as a 31-yearold

in 1981, led the Labour Party to victory in 1999 and was Prime Minister

of New Zealand for nine years. She then took on a critical international role as

Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme in New York.

One of her key focuses throughout this time has been the empowerment of

women and she has paved the way for other women to step up and lead.

With a foreword by the Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand,

this is a timely and important book.

The All blacks: The Secrets behind the World's Most

Successful Team

By Peter Bills

New Zealand rugby is a dynasty that transcends all national barriers. As a culture

and a model of humility and consistent success, leading to three Rugby World

Cups, the world of rugby continues to look to the New Zealand model for guidance.

Traditionally, the renowned All Blacks and those charged with guiding them have

kept their rules of engagement close to their chests. However now, New Zealand

Rugby has agreed to open their doors to rugby writer Peter Bills to consider the

reasons behind their dominance of the world game in the build-up towards the

Lions Series in 2017 and Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan.

Throughout this book, Peter Bills draws on case studies and interviews of officials,

coaches and players, as well as people involved in all elements of rugby, right

across New Zealand. The Jersey tells an extraordinary story with unprecedented

access and insight, and explores the basic requirements and immense challenges

required not only to become number one in the world, but remain consistently at

the top.

journeys to the Other Side of the World

Further adventures of a young naturalist

By Sir david Attenborough

Following the success of the original Zoo Quest expeditions, in the late 1950s

onwards the young David Attenborough embarked on further travels in a very

different part of the world.

From Madagascar and New Guinea to the Pacific Islands and the Northern Territory

of Australia, he and his cameraman companion were aiming to record not just

the wildlife, but the way of life of some of the indigenous people of these regions,

whose traditions had never been encountered by most of the British public before.

From the land divers of Pentecost Island and the sing-sings of New Guinea, to a

Roya Kava ceremony on Tonga and the ancient art of the Northern Territory, it is a

journey like no other. Alongside these remarkable cultures he encounters paradise

birds, chameleons, sifakas and many more animals in some of the most unique

environments on the planet.

Written with David Attenborough's characteristic charm, humour and warmth,

Journeys to the Other Side of the World is an inimitable adventure among people,

places and the wildest of wildlife.

Fire rages, homes at risk

The Spreydon-

Board presented its

community service

and youth service

awards at the Old

Stone House recently.

Here are the people

and groups honoured

Group awards

•Citizens Advice Bureau

Christine Bridgman and

Iris Schembri have been

volunteers with CAB for

10 years, providing free,

impartial and confidential

information and support to

individuals city-wide. They

also promote CAB’s services.

•St Martins Voluntary

Library – The original

St Martins Voluntary

Library was destroyed

in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, and the library

is now located in the new St

Martins Community Centre

building which was opened

in 2016. Christine Child is

the library’s book buyer

and has been a member of

the committee for 16 years.

Jeannie Moeller has given 10

years’ service as treasurer,

and applies for funding for

the purchase of new books.

Roma Murphy has been

secretary and a committee

member for more than

20 years. Gail Resuggan

has been library president

since 2010. Gail supported

the volunteers with the

clearance of books from

the earthquake-damaged

building through a series of

shifts, and worked with city

council staff responsible for

building the new community

centre to ensure that the

library space was fit for

purpose.

CONTRIBUTION: The Old Stone House gardeners were honoured at the Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board community service and youth service awards.

•The Old Stone House

gardeners – Ten volunteer

gardeners at the Old Stone

House have a combined

service of nearly 150 years.

Since the acquisition of the

fire-damaged Old Stone

House and its surrounding

grounds by the Heathcote

County Council (HCC) in

1972 for use as a community

centre, HCC and later the

city council developed

the gardens – lawns were

established, trees planted,

garden plots created,

footpaths laid, and stone

walls built. The grounds

were maintained for the

next 45 years by volunteers

who worked on Monday

afternoons. The gardens

won awards in the annual

garden competitions every

year. With advancing age

and no newcomers in sight,

it was with sadness that

the volunteers decided to

disband last year. Walter

Puentener had given 27

years’ service; Mervyn

Osborne, 25 years; Gordon

Rudd, 20 years; Andrew

Kim, 15 years; Caroline

Murray, 14 years; Rosalia

Kim, 12 years; Rick Bolch, 10

years; Otto Bolt, 10 years;

John Cousins, nine years;

and Anne Wilson, four

years. Botanic Gardens staff

now maintain the grounds

around heritage buildings

including the Old Stone

House.

•West Spreydon School

Pool Committee – Fifteen

volunteers have served

on the West Spreydon

School Pool Committee

at some point over the

past 15 years, building two

new swimming pools for

their community. They are

Suzanne Brittenden, Adrian

Disseveld, Bill Earle, Jared

Fretwell, Joy Lalahi, Duane

Major, Olivia Megarry,

Mathijs Nieuwenhuijsen,

Cheryl Scanlan, Jason

and Stacy Silich, Nicki

Smith, Bridgit Veenings,

and Lauren and Nick

Yannakis. A new pool was

opened on February 19,

2011. Three days later, the

pool was destroyed by

the 2011 earthquake. The

weeds grew and the area

became derelict. Eventually,

members of the original

school pool committee

started considering

whether they could rebuild

the pool – at a cost

of $1.3 million. Labour MP

Megan Woods supported

them in securing funding

of $200,000. Heartened

by this initial grant, the

school was inspired to

begin the re-build. A new

committee was formed

and the next five years

consisted of working bees,

funding applications, and

fundraising. The generosity

of trusts, boards, individuals,

and many businesses

enabled the committee to

give West Spreydon School

and its community their

pool back. The new pool

was opened on February 22,

2018, seven years to the day

after the previous brand new

pool was destroyed. This

time, the pool is made of

stainless steel to withstand

earthquakes. There were

more than 12 working bees

involving more than 50

volunteers. A permanent

fixed hoist assists those

with restricted physical

ability to enjoy the pool

which is for West Spreydon

School families and former

pupils, and the wider

community, including nearby

schools.

•Whareora House of

Life – Norma Hampton

and Cyril Morris are

volunteers at Whareora

in Spreydon. Whareora

was gifted funding to

undertake renovations

to the community house.

Norma managed the

12-month project. The result

is a refurbished house that

will serve the community

for many years. Norma

represents the community

on the board of Whareora

Trust. She is also a volunteer

at the community lunch and

works in the second-hand

clothing shop. For four years,

Cyril has had responsibility

for Whareora’s community

garden which provides

vegetables at no, or low, cost

to the community. During

Whareora’s renovations, Cyril

worked tirelessly to ensure

the house was ready for

the many groups using the

facility.

ADVERTORIAL

A new lease on life for Bob

For Bob Kirk, resident at Ryman

Healthcare’s Essie Summers

Retirement Village, his serviced

apartment has been a blessing.

The icing on the cake,

however, is the pool table in the

village lounge, and Bob is king

of the chalk, happy to take on

anyone who fancies a game.

Bob, 94, moved into the

village in May for respite care

after a bad fall. He needed a

place to recuperate and heal.

“I still need to go to the physio

and recover but I have moved

into my own serviced apartment

now,” Bob says smiling.

Essie Summers village

boasts several independent

living and care options,

including; townhouses, serviced

apartments, resthome, hospital,

and specialist dementia care.

Residents can relax or meet

their friends in the village

centre where the facilities

include indoor bowls, a grand

atrium, library, hair salon, bar,

and terrace.

Bob’s favourite thing is the

pool table.

“I used to play a lot of

snooker,” says the retired

carpenter.

“But nowadays, I play pool

with anyone I can rope in!”

Bob has made quite a few

friends with residents and

staff alike.

He also likes to join in the

Happy Hours and is looking

forward to joining in on

activities and outings when he

has recovered.

For now, he is happy to be

near everything.

“My room is handy,” says Bob,

“It’s nice and warm and close to

everything I need to go to.”

The village, which was rebuilt

after the 2011 earthquakes, has

a strong culture.

Ryman Sales Advisor Josie

McCrone, who is helping out

Ryman sales advisor Josie McCrone with serviced apartment resident Bob Kirk

with Susie Cowles, says that the

esprit de corps is apparent in

everything the village does. The

staff are enthusiastic in their

care for residents and always

make the most of celebrations.

“It’s certainly a very vibrant

village,” says Josie.

“The staff are lovely, and they

celebrate milestones.”

The village is conveniently

located close to the city in

Beckenham on Colombo Street.

“It also has what older

people value; a bus stop right

outside the village! It’s great

for those residents who don’t

drive anymore.”

Josie says that serviced

apartments are the perfect

combination of independence

and support. With a serviced

apartment available at the

moment, it is the best of

both worlds.

“It offers you the ability

to maintain your wellbeing

without the worries. It also

offers you independence but

just outside your door there is

fantastic support for if, or when,

you need it,” says Josie.

“You’re never alone. Life is

much easier.”

Assisted living in a serviced

apartment offers services

such as housekeeping, meals

and fresh linen delivered to

your door. Plus the weekly fee

is xed for life* which provides

real peace of mind about your

living costs.

For Josie, it’s heart-warming

for her to know that her

residents are happy and have

that security.

For Bob the best thing

about living at the village is

the friendliness of staff and

residents.

And of course, his beloved

pool table.

“There is always someone to

play pool with!”

*Terms and conditions apply.

Bob enjoys his hobby at the village - playing pool.

One-bedroom serviced

apartment available now!

BLOCKED: Extended road barriers are being installed in parts of the red zone to

deter vandals. ​

Red zone barriers get

bigger to stop vandals

•From page 1

“We want to prevent that from

happening and have been working on

the issue with Land Information New

Zealand,” Mr Thomas said.

LINZ manages red-zoned land for the

Crown but the city council owns the

roads and footpaths.

“LINZ has been working to lengthen

the barriers in targeted areas so it no

longer possible for cars to get around

them by driving on the footpath. They’re

adding additional bollards on the

footpath and berm areas and stringing

chains between them, so that cars can’t

get past but cyclists and pedestrians can

still get through,’’ Mr Thomas said.

“We hope this will bring an end to the

illegal dumping and stop unauthorised

vehicles from accessing the area.’’

LINZ red zone land and property

manager Matt Bradley has received

positive feedback from neighbouring

residents who have been frustrated by

the antisocial behaviour and rubbish

dumping.

“We received a lovely message from

a Dallington resident thanking us for

the work we have done to improve the

barriers,” he said.

“He said the simple addition of a few

gates and posts had done wonders to cut

down on antisocial behaviour and to

make the space feel safer for residents,

pedestrians and cyclists.’’

LINZ has been working closely with

landscaping contractors and others

who need legitimate access through a

smart lock and key system to open the

barriers.

“In the past weeks, our team has also

been working closely with whitebaiters

who want to get access to their favourite

spots,” said Mr Bradley

“We have successfully arranged access

for over 60 individuals and the feedback

has been very positive,” he

said.

The whitebaiters register their names

with LINZ in exchange for a special key

to open specific gates.

Mr Bradley said vandals rammed

some of the new gates to get access to the

streets.

“But we have replaced those gates

with heavier posts and other security

measures, like cameras, to keep those

people out of the red zone.”

The Subs to play Rockquest final

SCHOOLS

Christ’s band wins people’s vote

CHRIST’S College band The Subs

has kept its Smokefreerockquest

dream alive.

The band has been named

the people’s choice public vote

winner to book a spot in next

month’s national final.

The Subs won the regional final

in June but were not selected for

the national final after submitting

a video to judges.

However, the five-piece, poppunk

band rallied to gain the

support needed to win the people’s

choice vote and the last remaining

place in the top 10. The

Subs will now play in the final

on September 22 at the Dorothy

Winstone Centre, Auckland.

The band is made up of year 12

students Jono Stewart, vocals and

rhythm guitar; Zac Matson, bass;

Humphrey Bullen, lead guitar;

Matias Biraben-Clough, drums;

and Max Toth, keyboard and

synth.

Jono said the band is called

The Subs because it is made up of

“bench-warmers” from Run77 –

the winner of last year’s regional

Smokefreerockquest final.

The Subs beat Run77 to claim

the regional final title this year.

“When I heard second and

third place read out, my heart

sank – I thought Run77 would

win . . . I thought we hadn’t made

it,” Jono said.

But he did admit the rivalry

was a “bit of a joke” between the

bands – they’re actually good

friends.

Jono said The Subs entered the

Smokefreerockquest last year but

didn’t even make it through the

heats.

TOP 10: The Subs won the people’s choice award to book a spot in the Smokefreerockquest final

in Auckland on September 22.

School pupils battle to become quizmasters

WINNERS: The Otago Daily Times Extra! Canterbury quiz at Cobham Intermediate was won by

(top left) St Martins School pupils Oliver Williams, Dilkee Nanayokkara and Stella Shields, and

(left) Fendalton Open Air School’s Aran Cudmore, Aaron Kwak and Sam Atkinson.

• By Anan Zaki

ST MARTINS and

Fendalton Open-Air schools

took out the Otago Daily

Times Extra! Canterbury quiz

at Cobham Intermediate on

Wednesday.

The winners of the year 5

and 6 quiz were Sam Atkinson,

11, Aran Cudmore, 10, and

Aaron Kwak, 10, with a score 90

out of 100.

Sam, who was part of the

victorious Fendalton team, said

it was the first time the trio had

won and it felt “pretty awesome”.

He was also proud of his teammates.

“It was probably Aaron’s

knowledge of everything that got

us the win,” Sam said.

The second and third-placed

teams finished neck and neck,

with Prebbleton School on 82

points and Avonhead School on

81 points.

Year 5 and 6 defending champions,

Medbury School, finished

sixth. The St Martins School trio

took out the year 7 and 8

quiz, and were elated after the

win. Dilkee Nanayokkara, Stella

Shields and Oliver Williams,

all 12, scored 94 points out of

100. Stella said her team was the

strongest in the world mapping

question. “We struggled on the

newspaper search and guess who

question,” Dilkee said.

It was the first time the three

pupils from St Martins had won

the competition.

Christchurch South

Intermediate finished second

on 88 points ahead of defending

champions Cobham Intermediate

which were

third on 83 points.

It was organiser Tricia Rowe’s

first time running the quiz.

“It’s been really exciting

and nerve-wracking. It’s been

challenging making sure the

questions were pitched at the

right level,” Mrs Rowe said.

Both quizzes attracted 237

pupils from across Canterbury.

They were run by the Otago

Daily Times through Extra!

– its monthly Newspapers

in Education publication for

primary, intermediate and junior

secondary school pupils.

Strong build-up to

national tournament

SPORTS

SOUTHERN VIEW

• By Jacob Page

CASHMERE HIGH School start

their march towards the national

secondary schools’ tournament

by taking on the South Island’s

best in Invercargill this week.

The team finished 13th in New

Zealand last year and appear to

be one of the teams to beat in the

South Island after another strong

Christchurch campaign.

The team completed a dominant

season in the Thomson

Trophy secondary schools

competition with a 86-61 win

over Rangiora High School, last

Tuesday.

Cashmere won all nine of their

Thomson Trophy round-robin

encounters before winning both

their quarter-final, semi-final

and final.

They did this while outscoring

their opponents by more than

300 points during the campaign.

Last month they had a fourgame

unbeaten trip to Auckland

with wins against Westlake

Boys’ High School, St Kentigern

College, Rangitoto College and

defending national champions

Rosmini College.

Coach Paul Conner said they

had tougher matches during the

play-offs, with Middleton Grange

finishing just seven points

behind them in the semi-finals a

fortnight ago.

“Both Middleton Grange and

Rangiora were extremely well

coached and came with game

• By Jacob Page

SOUTHERN UNITED division

one hockey coach Max Winter

was running out of new ways

to make sure his team got the

message about staying unbeaten.

He won’t have to worry about

it until next season after his team

completed an undefeated season

by beating Hornby 2-1 in the

final last Saturday.

Southern has been the dominant

force in the grade having

lost just one game in the past two

years.

The team has managed it with

plans to upset our line-up,” he

said.

“Rangiora, in particular, did

well try to combat the extra

height we have.”

Cashmere High School’s Nic

Wenmoth was named the game’s

most valuable player.

Conner said it was good

preparation for the South Island

secondary schools’ tournament

in Invercargill.

“We played some good basketball

against quality opposition

a new coach and eight new faces

this season.

“I was running out of

entertaining ways to get the

message across at training,” he

said.

“How many ways can you say

to a team that it’s important we

don’t lose?”

Winter said several of the

youngsters were excited to finally

earn a trophy which seemed

destined to be theirs for much of

the season.

I think the younger guys were

excited but for a guy like Shane

(Maddaford) he was excited to

over the past few weeks and we

were able to give many of our

players quality minutes,” he said.

Tournament basketball is

always something different, with

eight games in four days, we’ll

have to manage that but we are

lucky that our key games don’t

really start until Wednesday.”

Conner said he knew his team

would have a target on its back

after such a successful season but

it was something his team would

enjoy.

Unbeaten season for hockey team

defend it and stay unbeaten.

Maddaford did all he could to

ensure the victory, scoring a goal

in the final.

Winter said the team had a

good mix of youth and experience

and deserved to enjoy their

moment.

“Not losing was something

that became harder the more the

season went on and the more we

became aware of it so to win the

final was great,”

Winter said the team was likely

to lose players and gain new faces

next year but that was the nature

of the division.

READY: Halswell boxer Megyn McLennan will main event

the Pacific Warriors 2 night at the Hagley Sports Centre on

September 15 against Kirwee’s Michaela Jenkins.

Women boxers

to shape up in

first pro event

• By Jacob Page

HALSWELL’S Megyn

McLennan started boxing five

years ago purely to lose weight.

In 11 days time she will be

part of the first professional

women’s bout to main event a

show in Christchurch.

The 39-year-old registered

nurse will be in the main event

of Strikeforce Boxing’s Pacific

Warriors 2 fundraising night at

the Hagley Sports Centre.

There will be at least six

corporate and amateur bouts on

the under card with McLennan

facing New Zealand Muay Thai

champion, Michaela Jenkins in

the four-round contest to end

the night.

“If you’d told me I’d be boxing

professionally five years ago,

I would have laughed in your

face,” McLennan said.

“When I first started, the

coaches would laugh at me

because I was the person who

could barely run and couldn’t do

a push-up.”

McLennan will enter her

11th bout overall and second

professional outing after losing

to Nelson’s Dawn Chalmers in

Motueka earlier this year.

“I like to think I’m a busy

fighter but working with (Strikeforce

coach) Steve Brown has

really sharpened my game,

“He gives us a toolbox of skills

we can use in the ring and it’s up

to us to make the most of it.”

Kirwee-based Jenkins is

coming off winning her New

Zealand Muay Thai title in June

and was offered this bout almost

straight away.

“I’ve been in camps since February

so it seemed like a good

match-up to take.”

Jenkins said she was impressed

with McLennan’s effort

in her loss to Chalmers.

“I thought she showed how

tough she was because Dawn

is a very credible fighter so I’m

looking forward to the challenge

of taking her on.”

Todd rises to the

occasion again

in league final

• By Jacob Page

IT’S SAFE to say, Linwood Keas

vice-captain Alex Todd is the

man for the big occasion.

The hard-working prop was

awarded the Mel Cooke Memorial

Trophy as man of the match

in the Canterbury rugby league

club grand-final for the second

year running last Sunday.

The 29-year-old had done

plenty of hard yards in the middle

of the park and was still able

to find the energy to take an

off-load from halfback Daniel

Hartley and crash over the line

for the match-winning try 2min

from full-time.

Todd’s heroics secured the

Keas a 20-16 win, after they were

trailing 14-16, against a gallant

Hornby Panthers at Rugby

League Park, ensuring Linwood

would be the first club since 1981

to win three finals in a row and

lift the Pat Smith Trophy.

“Finals are always amazing

games with the big crowd and

SPORTS

the atmosphere, I always want to

give it everything to get the win,”

he said.

“Let’s face it, afterwards you

can have a rest for a few weeks,”

he joked.

Todd said it was an honour to

win the Mel Cooke Memorial

Trophy.

“To play in a final is something

special but to be considered the

best on the ground and win an

award named after someone like

Mel Cooke is great.”

Cooke was a Hornby loose forward

who represented the Kiwis

23 times between 1959 and 1964.

In 1962 Cooke was captain of

the first Canterbury team to win

the Northern Union Cup from

Auckland at the then Addington

Showgrounds and was named in

the New Zealand Rugby League

all century team.

Todd debuted for the Keas

premier team 10 years ago as a

fresh-faced 18-year-old.

Keas coach Andrew Auimatagi

said Todd deserved credit for his

game-winning try.

“For a prop to be pushing up

and looking for a pass after a

tough 80min like that is nothing

short of exceptional,” he said.

Todd said he didn’t check to

see if the referee was going to

award the try before being congratulated

by his teammates.

“I took the pass and put (the

ball) down and it was close to a

(defender’s) boot but I got up and

just started celebrating,” Todd

said.

Auimatagi said: “He’s not a guy

who says a lot but the boys love

playing with him and for him.

He’s the kind of guy who sets a

quality example for the young

players and that performance

certainly showed it.”

MATCH-WINNER: Alex Todd was named man of the match in

the Pat Smith Trophy final win against the Hornby Panthers.

Golden Healthcare

Group

Golden Healthcare Group provides

dementia, aged care and mental health

support at seven facilities employing

259 staff and cares for approximately

350 residents. Also provides Villas and

Apartments

Rest home care is provided in Golden

Age Rest Home and Brookhaven Rest

Home, both of which also encompass

retirement villages. Brookhaven also

has a dementia care unit along with the

dedicated Camellia Court, Albarosa, and

Somerfield Rest Homes. Furthermore,

Hoon Hay Rest Home is a dedicated

dementia unit, but Hoon Hay House on

the same site specialises in mental health.

Also owned by Golden Healthcare

Group is The Lady Wigram Village.

The latest hotel style accommodation

includes a restaurant, licensed bar,

billiard room, movie theatre and library.

They have available the last of the Villas

and the apartments ready for occupation

now with staff available daily to show

people around.

Apartments are a perfect balance

of independence and peace of mind.

Provided are a daily meal, morning

and afternoon tea plus support in

maintaining the apartment leaving more

time for socialising. They have a singing

group, knitting and lots of other groups

to fill in the day.

The next stage of Lady Wigram is

now well underway, featuring another

14 apartments, swimming pool, spa

and gym. These will be completed by

Christmas.

When completed Lady Wigram

will have 73 apartments, a rest home,

a dementia facility and a hospital in

addition to the Villas.

“In our experience, a lot of people are

choosing to move into retirement village

life earlier because they recognise the

benefits of the ease of living and it allows

them greater freedom and more social

interaction. This means that it’s really

important for us to provide amenities

that help residents to socialise and

keep active. More and more, retirement

villages are becoming communities

within their own right.”

Call into 210 Kittyhawk Avenue

Device to prevent

snoring

Why put up with broken sleep, when

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and

dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth

for comfort, and a follow up service is

provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with

Snores for 22 years

and has had a 98%

success rate with

people using the

appliance. Snoring

can be a health

hazard, causing

sleep apnoea, where

the person actually

stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause

short-term memory

loss, tiredness and

contribute to high

blood pressure.

The Snorex

device does not feel

restrictive, is noninvasive

and carries

a money-back guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone

can phone for an appointment.

For an information pack or to discuss

the Snorex further, phone Denise Lim
