Stroke victim back on his bike

• By Anan Zaki

A KEEN cyclist and triathlete

Grant Cowan enjoyed an active

life.

But his world came crashing

down 18 months ago when he

suffered two strokes.

The former police officer and

father of two teenagers lost the

ability to speak, lost feeling in his

right arm and right leg.

Mr Cowan’s cycling hobby

came to a halt. He now resides

at St John of God care facility in

Halswell.

Having lost touch with pedals,

Mr Cowan’s family and friends

took him to the New Zealand

Bike Expo last week.

It was there, that they saw an

expression almost unseen for a 18

months.

Said his friend of 30 years

Rodger Wyatt: “The look on

his face, he was just absolutely

humming.”

“I didn’t know you could enjoy

someone else’s joy so much,” he

said.

Mr Cowan, 52, tried a

recumbent tricycle. The trike is

able to be ridden while sitting

down.

“I was just wrapping my brain

on how do we get this to happen

and get some public support,” he

said.

Mr Wyatt gathered two of

Mr Cowan’s closest friends and

former cycling teammates, Jan

Hales and Derrick Murray, to buy

the trike.

But the trike was $16,500.

The trio quickly hatched a plan

to raise money for Mr Cowan.

They will race in the Blue Dog

six-hour blast at McLeans Island

on Saturday, a race that the team

previously took part in with Mr

Cowan.

Mr Murray, who now lives in

Sydney, will fly across the ditch to

fundraise.

“We’ve got a spot for Grant,

he’s in the team but obviously he

can’t race,” Mr Murray.

“It seems like a very fitting way

to get word out about our mate,”

Mr Murray said.

The race at McLeans Island

brought back many memories,

Mr Wyatt said.

“We did a race together out at

McLeans Island as a mixed team

about four or five years ago.

“Grant came off his bike and

tore his leg open on his gear

leaver. It was pretty ugly.”

Mr Cowan was taken to

hospital and the team finished

second place.

“We still bag Grant now about

letting the team down,” Mr

Wyatt said.

He said Mr Cowan is aware

that his friends are trying to help

him.

“He knows he wants a bike,

he knows it’s going to give him

something to look forward to.

“I think he’s had a reasonably

dark 18 months and the look

on is face [on Monday] was just

extraordinary,” Mr Wyatt said.

Mr Murray just wants to see his

best friend mobile again.

“My thing is, he’s my best

mate, we’ve done so many crazy

adventures all over the South

Island,” he said.

“He doesn’t deserve to be in

a rehab facility, we just thought

we’ve got to find a way at to at

least come on a small ride with

us,” Mr Murray said.

He also wants to raise

IF EVER a guy deserved a helping hand it’s

Grant Cowan (see page 1).

Life has dealt him a terrible blow; two

strokes at a still relatively young age.

Now his mates have rallied to raise funds

for a special bike for this once very good sportsman.

I can vouch for Grant. My contact with him was in our

basketball team, many years ago now, but I can still see him as

an imposing figure under the basket. He was also a top bloke.

Grant was also a top martial arts exponent, went onto cycling

and as mentioned a natural basketballer.

His fundraiser is a worthy cause.

New method to beat midges

A NEW WAY of controlling the

plague of midges at the Bromley

oxidation ponds will be trialled

over the coming months.

The city council will be

disturbing the bottom of the

ponds where the midge lay

their larvae by mechanically

dragging chains across the pond

floor.

The chains will be dragged by

a boat travelling across the ponds

at a steady walking pace.

It is a control method that has

delivered promising results at

the Mangere oxidation ponds

in south Auckland, which has

also historically been plagued by

midge problems.

“At the moment the Bromley

oxidation ponds are the perfect

breeding ground for midges, so

in order to control their numbers,

we need to make the ponds

more inhospitable. We believe

that mechanically disturbing the

floor of the ponds is a quick, costeffective

way we can do that,’’

said city council three waters and

waste operations manager Adam

Twose.

“We will need to use the boat

on the ponds every 10 days for

about five hours. The result from

Mangere suggest that it should

lead to a reduction in the midge

population this summer.’’

SWARM: The midge population plaguing Aranui and Bromley will be controlled by chains which

will be dragged by a boat across the oxidation pond.

Mr Twose said longer term

there are plans to change the

engineering of the ponds so that

the inflow of treated wastewater

can be altered to create a less

hospitable environment for the

midges.

The city council is also doing

more planting around the ponds

to reduce the light from nearby

homes so that midges, which, like

moths, are naturally attracted

to light, are not drawn towards

them.

“It is going to take a while for

the plants to grow up to the point

where they make an effective

screen but in the meantime

we’re hoping we can provide

nearby residents with some

relief from the midges this

summer through the mechanical

disturbance work we’re doing,’’

Mr Twose said.

Hooked on fishing

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

THE DANGER OF

FEEDING BONES

Hillmorton’s Lucas Rolston, 6, joined about 5000 other

children and parents at The Groynes lakes for the annual Take

a Kid Fishing event

With the popularity of feeding raw food

diets now, we are seeing on the rise

intestinal damage and blockages due to

dogs eating the wrong sort of bones on a

regular basis. Over the past six months we

are doing exploratory surgeries to remove

bones that have got lodged somewhere in

the gastrointestinal tract almost on a weekly

basis– often we see these patients late Friday

afternoon so they end up being operated on

that night and transferred to the afterhours.

All this costs a lot of money and is stressful

for the owner. I’m not saying all bones are

bad but I think owners have to be aware of

the pitfalls, research carefully the safer bone

options like raw meaty bones and supervise

carefully when there pooch is having a good

old chew.

In some adult dogs with no medical issues,

feeding balanced and complete raw diets

may be okay but we at McMaster & Heap

will never be advocates of feeding most

bones on a regular basis and certainly not to

puppies. Very occasionally feeding a large

RAW meaty cannon bone is great for teeth

cleaning and general enjoyment. I limit Lola

my Labrador to a raw cannon bone twice

a month and it’s binned after one hour of

chewing. Once I forgot to take the bone

away and after three hours she was still

knawing away and the pulp in her upper

canine had bled into the tooth. Luckily it

healed quickly and she didn’t need the tooth

extracting.

The nutritional value of bones is poor and

their complication rate high. Dental disease

is common and we will often see fractured

canines and dying teeth from the pulp of

the tooth getting permanently damaged

from continual chewing on a hard object

for too long. Again supervision is needed.

Gastrointestinal disease, presenting with

vomiting, regurgitation, diarrhoea and

inappetance is commonplace (especially

with the feeding of cooked bones ) as is the

dreaded and expensive to treat “pancreatitis”

patient. Baked or barbequed bones become

hard and brittle causing splintering and

subsequent piercing of the softer tissues.

And then we have the blockages, where

bone is “stuck” and can’t be pushed

along with peristalsis, requiring surgical

intervention – not a cheap option but a

necessary one if we are to save the patients’

life.

Now we come to my beloved “Henry” who

regularly loves to visit me and have some

sort of operation fairly regularly. We have a

close relationship now. In January he was

This is Henry NOT

allowed on the furniture

very sick with pancreatitis and hospitalised

for days, then in August on a Sunday we

surgically removed a foreign body from his

small intestine and very recently he got a

large knuckle bone completely stuck in his

oesophagus requiring emergency surgery.

He usually bounces back quickly from

surgery but this last visit he’s had a few quite

serious complications from eating bones.

The large knuckle was removed through his

pharygnx carefully with the use of forceps.

Due to the oesophageal damage he’s had

difficulty eating and regurgitation issues.

He also had exploratory surgery to remove

many sharp shards of bone from his stomach

that were not able to pass through Henrys

intestine. As a result of the regurgitation due

to the surgery and eating of bones, he now

has aspiration pneumonia which is holding

his usually super recovery back. Henry

has spiking fevers daily, feels listless and is

off his food – a rare event for a Labrador!!

He is currently taking nine medications,

four of which are antibiotics. He’s been a

daily inpatient getting intravenous fluids

to support him as he hasn’t wanted to

drink much. His owners are performing

coupage several times a day to help clear

secretions from the lungs. This is a bit like

physiotherapy on the lungs to dislodge

mucous and fluid pooling in the lungs so

Henry can breathe easier. He coughs up the

secretions in his airways and swallows them.

Suffice to say the latest update from Henry

is great news. He’s back home, eating

much better, off intravenous fluids but still

on a variety of medications. Pneumonia

will probably take three to four weeks

of antibiotic therapy to clear his lungs

completely. Henry was very lucky as his

owners will do anything for him and acted

quickly getting him to us. He’s certainly

worthy though of the love he has from us

all. As you can see from his photo, he’s one

“cool dude”.

Veteran gardener wins another cup

Fire rages, homes at risk

The spring garden

competition has put some

of the city’s most beautiful

gardens in the spotlight,

with Northwood resident

Peter Lawrence taking out

the top award. Ashleigh

Monk talks to him about

what makes his section

stand out

NORTHWOOD’S Peter

Lawrence has always taken pride

in his garden – and moving to

a smaller section hasn’t stopped

him from winning a top garden

award.

Mr Lawrence won the Andrews

Cup at the Christchurch

Beautifying Association’s spring

garden competition.

He has competed “just about

every year” since 1974 and has

won the cup numerous times.

This was his first year working on

a smaller section.

“I was actually living next door,

but it was time to down-size so I

wouldn’t have such a big garden.

This is the first year I’ve entered

with this garden,” he said.

“I feel really good to have won.

There were some lovely gardens

out there.”

He said he has worked to get

the garden looking perfect over

the past year.

“Laying the lawns, cutting out

where the garden was going to

be. I had a vision in my head of

what it was going to look like and

it turned out really well.”

Mr Lawrence said gardening

was a “great past-time”,

regardless of the awards.

“It gets you out and the

neighbours talk to you, everyone

that passes talks to you,” he said.

“I’ll keep going as long as I’m

able to. I like a nice garden, it

offsets the house and upgrades

the area a bit. It’s nice to have an

area that people can enjoy.”

Parklands resident Joceylin

Ching was awarded a certificate

of merit in the competition for

her garden at 153 Royal Park

Drive.

After the earthquakes, the

former Dallington resident

scoured the red zone and rescued

a number of rose bushes.

She moved to Parklands

from her Cheam St home after

being red-zoned and the roses

flourished.

“I lot of the roses I picked up

from people who were leaving the

red zone,” she said.

“It’s great now seeing it all

come together, considering how

sick a lot of the plants were when

I lifted them up.”

GREEN FINGERS: Northwood

resident Peter Lawrence in his

award-winning garden with

his dog Roxy.

Christchurch Beautifying

Association president Ron

Andrews said it had been the best

spring awards since before the

quakes.

“This competition has been

well-attended over the years,

right up until the earthquake.

We lost a lot of gardens after that,

and it hasn’t been quite the same.

But we’ve had a record year – this

is the first time we’ve exceeded

the 40 or so entries,” he said.

He wanted to encourage more

people to take part in the awards

even if they didn’t have much

gardening experience.

“A lot of people feel they can’t

compete with some of the top

gardens, and of course that is

difficult, but we’re encouraging

people to come along, learn

to built up their competition

gardens, and we’re starting to get

more interest. Things are looking

really good.”

Seventhwave moves back home

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Salmons

WELL-KNOWN wetsuit

manufacturer Seventhwave

has returned home, bringing

its entire operation back to its

original Ferrymead site.

The company moved to a site

on Dyers Rd, Bromley, the day

before the September 4, 2010,

earthquake.

Managing director Sarah

Armstrong-Park said the refitted

shop opened on Monday morning.

She said the staff were excited

to move the manufacturing

plant, showroom and headquarters

back to the company’s

original home.

Sumner surfer Paul Zarifeh

founded the company in 1987 as

the Canterbury Wetsuit Company.

Mr Zarifeh died of

pancreatic cancer on

November 23 aged 60. Three

weeks later, his son Sam Zarifeh

died after falling from a raft on

the West Coast’s Landsborough

River.

The two were commemorated

by a sculpture on the Esplanade

which was installed in July.

Said Mrs Armstrong-Park:

“Paul was a lovely guy and even

though we weren’t there [when

Seventhwave was in Ferrymead]

HOME AGAIN: Sarah Armstrong-Park outside the Seventhwave shop in Ferrymead.

ourselves, it’s still like going

home. For our staff, who’ve been

here for a long time, they’re so

excited.”

Mrs Armstrong-Park and

Leif Park took ownership of the

company three years ago, and

briefly considered whether it was

feasible to continue manufacturing

locally.

“We decided that, really, that’s

what the brand is, keeping it

his father last year.

Kiwi. Taking it home really

aligns with that.”

She said the feedback from

the surfing community has been

positive. “Everyone’s really excited

about us coming back.”

“It’s a nice easy location to get

to and easy to find. We’re making

it easier for our customers to

find us.”

She said the Bromley site had

served them well in the postearthquake

years.

“Now it’s time to bring

Seventhwave back home to

Ferrymead to a more central

location for our loyal water-sport

enthusiasts.”

Mrs Armstrong-Park said the

location is “perfectly positioned”

for surfers, paddleboarders,

lifesavers, swimmers and boaties

to drop-in.

She said the signs on the refurbished

site have been modelled

off Mr Zarifeh’s original signs.

“Just with a few tweaks.”

The shop has been completely

remodelled and the factory area

is different.

“We’ve got an awesome new

women’s summer range which

we’re excited about.”

On Saturday, the company will

host an open day and barbecue

at the shop at 1063 Ferry Rd

from noon. Tours of the factory

will run from 4pm.

Experienced basketballers

leave Cashmere High

• By Jacob Page

TWO OF Cashmere High

School’s most experienced

basketballers have ended their

time in the senior team after

a vastly different four years

together.

Tom Russ-Hofmans and Dylan

Mahon have been part of the

team for four years, along with

Nic Wenmoth and Quinten

Conner.

Tom, 18, admits his final game

for the South Island champs at

the national championships this

month – where the team finished

ninth – was an emotional

moment.

“It was emotional knowing

that there was no next year to

aim for,” he said. “These guys

have been like brothers to me

and to know we won’t play

together again was a little sad.”

Said coach Paul Conner:

“Games where (Tom) may have

struggled to get into the grove

early, as a coach you always knew

you could rely on him down the

stretch in the fourth-quarter,”

Conner said.

“(Tom) was happy to mix

it inside the paint he would

also use his soft touch to his

advantage taking the shot from

behind the arc.”

While Tom played more

minutes than any other on the

team, for Dylan, 17, just making

it onto the court at nationals was

a victory.

Dylan played his entire year 10

season, but spent the next two

years recovering after “snapping”

his left anterior cruciate ligament

(ACL) twice.

The injury and rehabilitation

took him two years of recovery

time. “It was a hard time because

I still wanted to be part of the

squad so I’d turn up to trainings

and games and do an assistant

coach-type of role but it was

tough not to get out there and

add to my team,” he said.

This year he was back in the

starting five and helping his team

to ninth in New Zealand.

“Hopefully I can keep

playing basketball at club level

and see where it takes me,” Dylan

said.

Beating diabetes

SPORTS

• By Louis Day

CLAIRE HAMPTON managed

to overcome her type two

diabetes within four months

thanks to Sport Canterbury’s Be

Active programme.

Mrs Hampton’s blood glucose

levels dropped from 89 hba1c to

37 hba1c, anything less than 40

is considered normal, whereas

levels over 50 suggest someone is

“My doctor was so happy, she

Mrs Hampton now volunteers

Mrs Hampton said the Be Active

“One part of the programme

is focused on well-being and

nutrition whereas the other is

all about exercise. I found out

through Be Active all the places I

could go for exercise that worked

for me. I did Zumba, line dancing,

Cashmere Tech keeper in

under-17 World Cup squad

• By Jacob Page

CASHMERE Technical

goalkeeper Blair Currie has

been named in the New Zealand

under-17 women’s football team

to compete at the World Cup in

Uruguay.

The year 13 St Andrew’s

College student was one of six

Mainland players to be named

in the 21-strong squad on

Wednesday.

Other players who made the

cut were Marissa van der Meer

(FC Twenty 11, Middleton

Grange), Macey Fraser

(Waimak United , Rangiora

High School), Gabrielle Rennie

(Waimak United, Rangiora High

School), Jayda Stewart

(Waimak United, Papanui High

School) and Amelia Abbott

(Nelson).

The squad will depart on

November 3 with their first

game coming against Finland on

November 14.

Currie transferred to

Cashmere Technical from

Waimakariri United at the start

of the season.

When she began playing

football as a six-year-old,

she said she did not initially

start out as a goalkeeper and

actually spent a season playing

rugby.

“I used to watch my dad play

masters (football) on

the weekend so thought I’d

give it a try,” she said. It wasn’t

until she was 13 that she gave

goalkeeping her full focus.

“I’d always ask the coaches if

I could give it a go and I really

loved it when the goalkeeper was

away,” she said. “Eventually I just

did it all the time.”

Currie was also named

women’s goalkeeper of the year

at the Mainland Football awards

night this month.

CANTERBURY WON back-toback

Collier Trophy under-13

girls national hockey titles

at North Harbour over the

weekend.

The team won in dominant

fashion, scoring 27 goals in the

week-long tournament and conceding

just two.

What made their back-to-back

success more impressive was that

only one of the squad, captain

Keeley Hughes, returned from

last year’s victorious squad.

Canterbury defeated Central

Otago in the final on Saturday.

Canterbury beat Hawke’s Bay

5-0 in their semi-final, thanks

to two goals from Hughes and

Kaiyah Ratu, as well as one from

Holly Gilray.

Hastie and Ava Croton earned

Canterbury their winning margin

by half-time of the final.

Coach Cathy Baker said the

team trained hard defensively

and emphasised their fitness

prior to the tournament.

“We tried to keep teams out of

our circle and that worked well

for the most part, plus we had a

goalkeeper who stood up,” she

said.

“We tried to prioritise our

fitness because after eight games

in a week that can make a real

difference for young kids.”

Baker said the past two seasons

have highlighted the level of

talent coming through in Canterbury

hockey.

Three year 7 players can qualify

again for the team next year to

attempt the three-peat.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

Cave Rock

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.

Goodbye to Westview Lounge

and Chalmers Restaurant

e DnD Duo

THE entire west wing of the Hornby WMC

closes this weekend. e closure heralds Stage

1 of an exciting two-year redevelopment

project commencing in November.

“It’s a major $18 million redevelopment

that involves the demolition and rebuilding of

half the Club’s current premises,” said Paul

Inwood, General Manager. “e main bar area

needed to be earthquake strengthened, so the

Board decided to look at the bigger picture

and create a multi-functional facility where

families can spend more time in a relaxed

environment.”

e new west wing, to be completed by the

end of 2019, will incorporate a large sports bar

on the ground floor and a mezzanine floor

above with a performance area and a cafe

opening out to a deck with indoor/outdoor

eating options.

Next stage, the current east wing main bar

will be gutted and replaced with a family

restaurant; indoor children’s playground;

corporate areas; and hall for the Club’s sporting

sections. Completion date for Stage 2 is set at

12 months aer completion of Stage 1.
