DOUBLE TROUBLE:

Abby Mason

balances her

passion for writing

and tennis.

Tennis star also a dab hand with poetry

• By Ashleigh Monk

A RISING tennis star has tried

her hand at poetry – and come

out on top.

St Margaret’s College student

Abby Mason won the WORD

Secondary Schools Science

Writing Competition.

It was all in a day’s work for

the 14-year-old, who has also

had success in tennis.

Abby was the youngest member

of the St Margaret’s senior

A tennis team which won the

South Island championships and

made the semi-final at nationals.

She was also part of the

businesses

could

keep their

car parking

spaces

• By Ashleigh Monk

PAPANUI BUSINESSES could

have their on-street parking

spared as plans for the Main

North Rd bus priority project are

finalised.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board approved the plans

at a meeting on Friday, with an

amendment that would save a

stretch between Harewood Rd

and Winston Ave from being

converted into a bus lane.

Super Liquor owner Carolyn

Moffat said that while she was

glad the amendment had been

approved by the board, she was

worried the city council would

“veto it.”

“If they put a bus lane in, it

would have to be a 24-hour bus

lane because the road is quite

narrow and can’t accommodate

both the lane and parking. So it’s

a 24-hour bus lane, or nothing at

all, there’s not room for both,” she

said.

“The car parks outside our shop

get used a lot at night, so having

a bus lane there when it wouldn’t

even required at night would

really affect us.”

COMMONSENSE LOOKS like it will

prevail over the contentious bus priority

lane issue on Main North Rd (see page 1).

The Papanui-Innes Community Board

is backing retailers’ call not to spare the

stretch of road between Main North and

Winstone Ave. It means on street parking for the businesses

along that stretch of busy road is likely to stay.

Parking is vital to a business’s livelihood. Customers means

turnover; turnover means bills and wages can be paid and

people hired.

If there are no parks people keep on driving and that’s when

problems start. So the community board has to be applauded for

taking the commonsense approach.

It’s decision now goes to the city council for approval. Let’s

hope the council agrees with the community board.

Road safety plan approved

• By Ashleigh Monk

PARKING CHANGES around

Christchurch Boys’ High School

will make it easier for motorists

and cyclists to share the road

safely.

A proposal has been approved

to implement a three-minute

restricted drop-off and pick-up

zone along the north side of

Kahu Rd.

It will operate

from 8.30am

to 9.30am and

from 2pm to

4pm every

school day, but

outside these

Sam

MacDonald

times parking

will be unrestricted.

The moving of

two bus stops and an extension of

the no-stopping lines on Girvan

Rd will also be implemented.

The decision was approved in a

combined meeting between the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

and the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Boards.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board chairman Sam

MacDonald said it was a good

“middle ground” for both the

school and residents in the area.

“We ultimately moved with

option two, which was to keep

the parking because there was

enough room on the road to

have the existing cycleways and

not limit the parking,” he said.

“It was a sort of happy medium

between what the school

staff wanted and what the residents

wanted.”

Following the Christchurch

earthquakes, CBHS had undergone

significant redevelopment

which was estimated to continue

for the next three to five years.

The redevelopment caused

cycle parking facilities to be

relocated, which resulted in significantly

greater cycle activity

on the Kahu Rd frontage.

The approved changes, costing

$2000 to implement, would

make it safer for students to

cycle around the school.

“With the developments at the

school, where the bike sheds are

now might not be the permanent

place going forward,” he said.

“This change helps deal with

those safety issues now, while

at the same protecting the

residents’ amenities as well . . .

will still be able to cycle and get

to and from, we’ve just balanced

that with the need to maintain

car parks.”

Mr MacDonald also said the

board went with option two

so as not to take parking opportunities

away from weekend

market-goers.

“We had to think about the

Riccarton Bush, in terms of the

market on Saturday. We just

can’t afford to keep taking car

parks out of residential areas.”

Christchurch Boys’ High

School declined to comment.

sports pavilion was demolished

due to earthquake damage and

replaced with a new pavilion

that incorporates two fully

accessible public toilets. Work was

Donated chairs unveiled at hospital

Fire rages, homes at risk

TWO ST Andrew’s College

students have honoured their

late father Kevin ‘Chalky’ Carr

by cutting the ribbon on 18

chemotherapy treatment chairs

donated by the Chalky Carr

Trust.

Jamie and Josh Carr visited the

Christchurch Hospital oncology

unit to celebrate the arrival of

the specially-designed treatment

chairs that are making patients

more comfortable when having

chemotherapy or transfusions.

The trust’s vision was to raise

funds to make a practical impact

for a person living with a cancer

diagnosis or their family members

who need support through

the journey.

The charity’s founder Mr Carr

was a decorated hero and All

Blacks logistics manager who

received treatment in Christchurch

Hospital’s Oncology Unit

and wanted to help others going

through treatment.

He could see how better chairs

may not necessarily reduce the

pain for those undergoing treatment,

but could make it more

tolerable.

Mr Carr passed away in January

this year. He is survived by

his wife Sarah, an emergency

department physician at the

hospital, and their sons Jamie

and Josh, who attend St Andrew’s

College.

Oncology charge nurse manager

Hayley Beckman, who was

instrumental in helping to make

the donation possible, was delighted

that the chairs were now

in the ward and providing many

benefits for patients and staff.

Registered nurse Helen

O’Connor, who cared for Mr

Carr during his treatment, said

the chairs had been a phenomenal

gift and had already made a

difference.

“We had a clinical emergency

earlier on the day where we used

the chair to its full potential. We

were able to lie the chair flat and

move the patient into another

room quickly and easily,” she said.

“Previously we would have had

to transfer the patient from the

chair and onto a bed first.”

At the event, Chalky Carr

Trust patron Gemma McCaw

also unveiled plans for the trust’s

new partnership with Blue Star

Taxis, named ‘Chalky’s Cars’, that

will provide free and subsidised

taxis for patients to attend their

treatment appointments in the

hospital’s oncology department.

and return home easier for those

undergoing chemotherapy.

those worries away,” Mr Gamble

said.

Cycleway

traffic light

hit again

• By Ashleigh Monk

A “dangerously-placed” cycleway

traffic light has been hit for the

third time since it was installed a

year ago.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member

John Stringer

said he raised

concerns about

the traffic light

on the corner of

Sissons Dr and

Sawyers Arms

Rd when it was

installed, but

nothing had

been done.

“Traffic

that has freely turned left at that

junction now run directly into

this cycleway’s post whereas before

they had a free turn. If you’re not

looking directly at it, it’s in your

way,” he said.

“It’s a no-brainer. It’s a random

new post that is in the way of left

turning traffic, it has been hit

again, and it doesn’t need to be

there.”Mr Stringer said he would

bring the issue up at the next board

meeting to see if it could be moved

2m back from traffic turning into

Sissons Drive.

Businesses could keep parking spaces

•From page 1

She said she hoped the city

council would consider the

proposal “from the perspective

of businesses.”

“They make these changes

to benefit people commuting

through Papanui, shuffling them

through to North Canterbury,

but they should prioritise people

who live and work here.”

The Crystal People owner Glen

Tregurtha said the amendment

was “fantastic”, as he had made

deputations on the issue multiple

times to try and save the parking

spaces across the road from his

business.

“I came at this from an interesting

angle as I am a cyclist and

bus-user, but I’m also a business

owner. Often I find business

owners get typecast as overvaluing

their on-street parking,

and you just have to step back

and look at it rationally.”

He said he hoped Papanui

would be seen as a destination,

and not just because of Northlands

Shopping Centre.

“We’re really trying to push

Papanui as a key activity centre,

a destination. It’s not just about

the mall, we want to push what’s

happening in our village,” he

said.

“Christchurch just has so

much potential now, we’re getting

so many things right . . . I

COMPROMISE: Businesses on Main North Rd could keep their on-street parking as the

Papanui-Innes Community Board approves a plan to keep a stretch of the road from being

converted to a bus lane.

just feel like sometimes these

teams let down the smaller centres,

and too much focus is put

on the central city.’’

Rose and Thistle Bar general

manager Sonya Gibson said losing

those parking spaces would

have an effect on “most of the

businesses” in the area.

“I think for any of the businesses

in the area, as far as

viability for people to actually

stop, parking is paramount. You

can’t just go over and park at the

mall.”

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

said the amendment was a “good

compromise.”

“From a board perspective

what was important was that we

stayed primarily true to what the

bus lane was trying to approve,

but also recognise that there

were businesses and others that

needed to be considered,” she

said.

“I said in the meeting, I

knew we weren’t going to make

everyone happy, but we were

trying to make as many happy as

we could.”

She said that kerbing and paving

upgrades at the Harewood

Rd, Winston Ave intersection

would still be included in the

proposal.

The proposal will be presented

to the city council at an

upcoming meeting.

Tennis star pens award-winning poem

•From page 1

Abby’s award-winning

poem, titled Newton’s Third

Law, was picked for first place

by the WORD competition’s

judge, poet and author Helen

Heath.

“I’m part of this school for

young writers thing, which I

go to on Saturday mornings,

and they mentioned the

competition, so I decided to

write something,” she said.

“I love writing, you can just do

so much with it, you can write

whatever you want.”

Abby said she was the first in

her family to dabble in creative

writing, which she became

interested in after joining a

writing group as a pupil at

Selwyn House School.

“I had this one teacher who

was amazing, she taught me so

much. It was the highlight of

my week going to those creative

writing sessions.”

Her father Rhett Mason was a

former junior Davis Cup player

and the pair played mixed

doubles competitions alongside

each other.

Abby said she had to juggle

her passions for writing and

tennis with her schoolwork and

social life.

“I started playing tennis when

I was about seven, but my dad

is a really good tennis player so

he started throwing tennis balls

at me when I was three or four,”

she said.

“Sometimes it’s a bit of a

struggle to balance everything, I

don’t know how I manage to fit

it all in, but I do.”

And when asked which of

her passions she might pursue

as a career, she couldn’t

decide.

“I’d really like to continue

doing both for as long as I can.

I might change how I think in a

few years, but for now I want to

do both.”

Newton’s Third Law

When I drove to your house

you said

take me somewhere

you didn’t want to talk about

your dad

he wasn’t worth talking about

everything you did, set him off.

There was silence, apart from

the grounding of tyres

against the dusty road.

It was hard to see straight,

in the dark, on the coast,

with the moon

distancing itself,

making the waves drowsy.

The only light was tiny balls of

gas in the sky

and because I took my hand

off the wheel to hold yours

I didn’t see the truck

or the ditch

or the stars,

as we flipped.

Grab your girlfriends, mum or daughters

and come have a great day out!

Boy racers frustrate

Fendalton Rd residents

Work starts on

Burnside pump station

WORK AT the Burnside

pump station will start this

week to convert the below

ground well head to an above

ground well head.

A contractor will be on-site

to carry out set-up work,

including fencing, signage and

sediment erosion control.

The well head conversion

will take about 55 days and

aims to ensure the continued

supply of secure drinking

water.

Following completion,

there will be no need to temporarily

chlorinate the water

at this site when all wells are

in use.

The Burnside pump station

supplies water to about a fifth

of the homes in Christchurch’s

north-west zone. It pumps out

about 1.8 million cubic metres

of water annually.

The completion of work on

the Burnside pump station

would bring the north-west

closer to being chlorine-free.

Last week, work finished

on the new Gardiners pump

station in Harewood Park,

replacing the old Harewood

pump station.

The city council also stopped

chlorinating the Thompsons

water pump station in late

August, bringing the total

number of pump stations

across the city not being

FENDALTON HAS been

targeted by late-night boy racers.

Police believe an incident on

Fendalton Rd on September 8

was a one-off, but will closely

monitor the area.

Canterbury road policing manager

Inspector Ash Tabb said

that while Fendalton Rd was not

usually a hot-spot for boy racers,

it was a closely-watched issue in

the city.

“Canterbury police have a

dedicated team which liaises

with the car enthusiasts group,

and uses education and enforcement

intervention to change

behaviour,” he said.

“Where there are breaches of

the law – such as illegally noisy

vehicles, excessive speed, and

other types of dangerous behaviour

– all police officers will take

action against offenders.”

But Cheryl said a group was

racing up and down Fendalton

Rd on the Saturday night until

about 4am.

“They were using

Fendalton Rd as a racetrack

side they have little toddlers.

When my grandchildren come

and stay the night, it’s really hard

to get them to sleep,” she said.

Cheryl said the couple felt they

an “exorbitant” amount in rates.

“It’s just a hideous amount in

Cr Gough said boy

racing hadn’t been as

“prevalent” in Fendalton

as other areas of

the city, but it could

become an issue if it

wasn’t monitored.

“The nature of this

though is that it is literally a mobile

problem and the hot-spots

change, so we’ll need to watch

it closely to determine the best

course of action,” he said.

“I think we all hope that this

is just a one-off, but we still

shouldn’t assume anything or be

complacent about it.”

Citycare workers have started clearing weeds from

Wairarapa Stream after Merivale residents voiced their

concerns over flooding from the stream. Colin and Valerie

Averill, who live on Garden Rd, approached the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community Board because the stream

had been overflowing and killing trees on their property.

Maintenance work had been carried out about twice a year

but due to high water flow the issue had deteriorated and

thorough weed-clearing needed to be carried out. Mr Averill

said the couple were pleased work had begun.

Checkout award for Morsal

TOP JOB: Checkout

supervisor Morsal Darwesh

won the national Countdown

Checker of the Year

competition.

• By Ashleigh Monk

CHECKOUT supervisor Morsal

Darwesh loves her job.

And her passion for her role

at Countdown Northlands has

earned her the chain’s Checker

of the Year award.

Miss Darwesh started out as

a checkout operator at Countdown

Moorhouse Ave in 2012

and worked her way up to being

a supervisor.

“It was just a part-time job

I took back at high school to

support my family and to have

some money so I could be more

independent,” she said.

“I’m one of those people who

is confident and loves talking

with people. I do get shy, but

when it comes to work I’m a really

outgoing person.”

She said her role came with its

challenges, but she took them in

her stride.

“When you can turn someone’s

bad day into a good day

and put a smile on their face, it’s

amazing.”

She transferred to the Northlands

branch in April, and she

said the team there inspired

her to take part in the national

Checker of the Year competition.

“All these years the Checker of

the Year award was right there in

front of me and I just wasn’t confident

enough to know whether I

had that much faith in myself to

be able to win,” she said.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

“My team encouraged me to

apply . . . my checkout manager

said: ‘I think you have the potential

to win’ so I said ‘okay, I’ll

take your word then’ and that’s

how it started.”

The competition required entrants

to complete several checkout

challenges and test their

knowledge in a final interview.

Miss Darwesh took part in

an in-store checkout competition

last year and came second,

which spurred her to compete

on a national level.

She said she felt “incredible”

after winning the Checker of the

Year award, which came with

prizes of a $2000 Visa Gift Card

and a golden cash register.

“I wanted to do this for my

team, to make them proud,” she

said.

“It feels amazing because I

took a risk. Even though I didn’t

pass the first time, I didn’t give

up. That’s one thing I realised

about myself is that to achieve

something, no matter how many

times I fall, I will get up and

achieve that.”

Miss Darwesh was studying

management and HR at

Canterbury University and

would like to become a customer

service manager in the near

future.

Celebrating Te Reo Maori

SCHOOLS ACROSS the

Language Week.

Mairehau Primary School

pupils treated shoppers to a

waiata concert at The Palms

Shopping Centre last week.

A spokeswoman for the school

said the performance was “well

supported” by the community.

Burnside Primary School

pupils also got creative with

harakeke plant weaving in

celebration of the week long

event. Weaver Simon Rutherford

visited the school and taught

a group of year 4 pupils how

to weave flax to make a taka, a

traditional mat.

Pupil Riley Goodall said the

weaving session was the highlight

of his week.

“I loved weaving with Simon,”

he said. “Simon demonstrated

how to weave a taka; he finished

his in about eight minutes.”

He said it took a while to get

the hang of weaving, but the end

result was worth the wait.

“First, we split the harakeke

into two pieces, resulting in

about 18 pieces, then we started

weaving. About half an hour later

the bell rang for lunch and after

lunch, the teachers had got us all

up to the same stage, finishing

off,” he said.

“Once we finished off our first

taka we repeated the process to

weave a second one, and then we

were done.”

ack to inspire

RHYTHMIC GYMNAST

Ashleigh O’Neill is back

competing to try and inspire the

juniors she coaches.

The Olympia Gymsports competitor

and coach will compete

at the national championships

in Tauranga from October 2 to

7 after four years away from the

competition floor.

The 21-year-old will compete

for Canterbury in the hoop, ball,

ribbon and club events and hopes

to medal in all three.

But she said her main goal was

to inspire her own athletes, all

aged between six and 16.

“I always enjoyed coaching

because I’ve been an athlete for

a long time but I wanted to show

my girls that I know what they’re

going through,” she said.

“I’ve been coaching during my

time away but being around it so

much made me miss it so I find

the motivation to balance both

training to compete and coaching.

“I train by myself in the morning

then do my work and coaching

in the afternoon and I try to

get to the gym five days a week

of the time,” she said.

O’Neill took up the sport when

she was seven-years-old and her

“We were at King’s Swim

O’Neill said she wanted to

she hoped to set an example that

Wilson eyes scholarship

JOSHUA WILSON has got

American college scholarships in

sight every time he pitches.

The 17-year-old St Bede’s

College student will travel to

the United States next month to

compete with the New Zealand

under-18 baseball squad at the

Arizona Fall Classic Showcase.

The Southern Astros and

Canterbury pitcher said his

selection for the team was based

off his performance during the

nationals held in Orewa in April.

When Southern Astros coach

Nathan McDonald approached

him to say he had a spot on the

national team, Joshua said he was

“keen as.”

“It’s incredible, it was a pretty

big surprise to be honest,” he

said. To keep his skills sharp

during the off season, Joshua

had been regularly training

with McDonald. The first of

two training camps he will be

attending with the New Zealand

team starts in two weeks. As the

only player in the side from the

South Island, Joshua will have

to travel to Auckland for both

camps.

first walking out onto a diamond

only two years ago.

“He’s very keen on baseball

Boxer seeks hat-trick

• By Jacob Page

REDWOOD BOXER Rendz

Remaneses is determined to

win a hat-trick of national titles

in front of a home crowd next

month.

Remaneses will be looking

for his third consecutive New

Zealand title in the elite 56kg

range during the national

amateur championships at the

Hornby Workingman’s Club

from October 3 to 6.

The 25-year-old has had a

tough time finding bouts this

year, with just five to his name

and most of them up at least two

weight classes.

“It’s not been the type of

preparation I’d like but the guys

in my weight class don’t seem to

want to fight me.

“Boxing in front of family and

friends at the nationals this year

has been a real motivator for

me to keep working hard in the

gym,” he said.

The former Papanui High

School student was introduced to

the sport when he was 17-yearsold

during an after school

programme.

“The trainer said I was really

getting into it and asked if I’d

like to have a fight one day and I

said yeah.

“I like to think I’m a powerful

BURNSIDE HIGH School is

quickly becoming a national

force in table tennis.

defended their respective New

Zealand secondary schools titles

in Hamilton last week.

The students also won a number

of age group titles in only the

second year the school had sent a

team to the tournament.

Avon Liu won the girls

under-19 title and Jiayi Zhou won

the under-15 girls title.

Alex Zhou finished earned

a silver in the under-19 boys

category, Sang-Yong Park was

runner-up in the under-19

Samuel Li and Zac McKellar

were part of the victorious boys

team. Teacher in charge of table

tennis Tracy Taylor said with no

competition in the girls team

grade, they entered the open boys

grade and finished third.

“The only game our girls lost

was to our own boys team,” she

said. Taylor said she was thrilled

the team was able to defend their

titles and find a lot of individual

success.

“There were a lot of Auckland

teams up there who had never

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Anxiety and breathing

– are they related?

When good breathing goes bad

Have you experienced any of these

breathing difficulty symptoms?

• Disturbed sleep

• Erratic heartbeats*

• Feeling anxious and uptight

• Upset gut/nausea

• Chest pains*

• Shattered confidence

• Tired all the time

• Achy muscles and joints

• Dizzy spells* or feeling spaced out

• Irritability or hypervigilance

• Frequent yawning and sighing

• Breathing discomfort*

• Pins and needles

• Feelings of ‘air hunger’

*Check with your doctor if you experience

these symptoms.

These questions are asked on

the website www.BradCliff.com.

BradCliff was started by North Island

physiotherapists Dinah Bradley and

Tania Cliffton Smith, who specialise in

hyperventilation and anxiety treatment.

Their website notes one in 10 people

experience some form of breathing pattern

disorder or chronic over breathing at some

time in their lives, resulting in a range

of disturbing or frightening symptoms

puzzling to you and your doctor.

You feel unwell because of overbreathing,

and overbreathing makes you feel unwell.

A vicious cycle is established, which is a

major stress all by itself. This is experienced

currently by many Cantabrians, says Ietje

van Stolk of Physical Sense Gym & Physio.

As she explains, it is normal to breathe fast

and in the upper chest when we are in danger

and fight or flight is needed. We know all

about that here, due to the earthquakes.

Normally, once the danger is gone, our

breathing should restore itself within a

couple of days. We would then be using the

diaphragm for our normal nonstressed

breathing. We have been having a hard

time restoring our breathing pattern

here in Canterbury because every time

our body tried to achieve that, the next

aftershock came rolling in. Even though the

aftershocks have significantly diminished,

some people’s fight or flight mode

breathing has become chronic, or habitual,

Ietje says. And, as she points out, using the

wrong muscles for breathing means these

overworked muscles cause headaches, neck

pain and jaw pain.

With fast upper chest breathing, sighing

and yawning, the resulting disturbance

of our oxygen and carbon dioxide levels

can give us the feeling we are not able to

control our own body. One moment you

are feeling fine, next moment your chest

feels tight, you feel out of breath, your

heart beats erratically and you may even

experience dizziness and/or tingling.

Very scary if you do not understand what

is happening. No wonder this causes

anxiety. Not being the boss over our own

body makes us anxious, anxiety feeds the

faulty breathing pattern, and so it goes on.

The BradCliff physiotherapists have

established a national network of

practitioners that regularly train together

and can help you overcome this problem.

Physical Sense is part of that network.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

The tree of LIFE

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

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 “microstrokes”

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

micro-circulation and helps the blood

flow reach those critical places it needs to

get. 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

multi-step 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 activated 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.

TEBONIN and further information

TURN IN the drive at 269 Hills Rd,

cross the creek, and you've found it,

the St Albans Shirley Club (SAS Club).

Located on the cusp of St Albans

and Shirley, the SAS Club was

established back in 1955 by a small

group of community minded citizens

with the intention to provide a local

club with a strong community focus.

Sixty years on and the club continues

with this objective providing support

for local schools and groups.

Club and affiliate members gain

access to the many great facilities on

offer. There's a MEMBER'S BAR with

discounted bar prices, bistro (open

from 5-8pm Thursday, Friday,

Saturday), bar menu, TAB, gaming

machines, big screen SKY sport, pool

tables; SPORTING SECTIONS that

compete locally and nationally; LIVE

ENTERTAINMENT; and to get you

home safe and sound... the Club

Shuttle (operates Thursday, Friday and

Saturday evenings).

Anyone can become a member of

the SAS Club and potential new

members are welcome to call in and

check out the great facilities and

advantages of joining your local club.

For more information, go to

www.sasclub.co.nz, visit them on

facebook, call in at 269 Hills Rd, or

phone them on 385 1632.

Live music this Saturday with the

DnD DUO from 7pm! Jojo and Mark

play a bit of everything - Country,

Celtic, Rock n Roll, Classic Rock, Pop.

Grab a bite at the Bistro and enjoy

some great music!
