FOR THE price of two coffees,

10-month-old George Winter is

being given the best chance to

become a confident swimmer.

So his mother Laura is urging

other parents to prioritise

swimming as well.

Her views come as a city

council survey shows less than

half of children are enrolled in

swimming lessons.

Of the 324 people with children

surveyed, less than half

of those (43 per cent) had their

kids in lessons with concerns

over cost and time pressure

were cited as a major factors.

Ms Winter said it was “really

important” that George

becomes a confident swimmer,

so cost didn’t matter.

“It’s about $10 a lesson, which

is two coffees a week. Other

people prioritise things, but I

prioritise swimming,” she said.

Teen’s booming business

• By Louis Day

ZOE ELMEY is only 13 and

has already building a booming

business.

The Sumner teenager has a

gift card business and a range of

baby products selling throughout

New Zealand. The gift cards have

also been sold in a shop in Eastbourne,

south-east England.

Zoe, who starts St Andrew’s

College this year, has sold more

than 4500 gift cards featuring her

own designs.

And Prime Minister Jacinda

Ardern is also a fan.

Zoe sent gift cards, and bibs

and teething rings from her baby

product range to new mother Ms

Adern as part of the prime minister’s

Christmas card competition.

Ms Ardern sent a letter thanking

her for the gifts.

“It was amazing I didn’t expect

anything back, I thought it was

just going to add to the pile of

things she probably receives,” she

said.

Zoe started the business Lots of

Love Art when she was 10.

She has 26 different designs

which feature on various pieces

of artwork. Fifty per cent of the

proceeds of a turtle card are donated

to Greenpeace to help them

continue to protect turtles from

plastic pollution.

She has also recently started

her own baby range, inspired

by the arrival of her newborn

sister Hollyanne.

“I made so much stuff for her,

I was knitting and sewing and I

just loved the bibs and the teething

rings so I just started selling

them,” she said.

Zoe sews all of the baby bibs,

burp cloths and material covering

her teething rings by hand.

“I’m probably different to the

usual teenager hanging out at the

beach and stuff. Basically, any

free time I have after school I’m

sewing and working on the baby

range.”

Said her mother Becky Nisbet:

“When Zoe was at pre-school she

would spend all day doing arts

and crafts and making presents

for me when other kids were in

the playground and sandpit.”

The business began to boom

after Mrs Nisbet began showing

the cards gift shops while they

were on holiday in New Zealand

and when they were in England.

Akaroa Dolphins Shop’s

Natalie Stuart said Zoe’s cards

were extremely popular with

customers.

“People come in and are

astounded that the cards were

made by someone so young, they

sell like hot cakes.”

So is Zoe on her way to her first

$1 million? Mum and Zoe are not

saying.

Dagg back to a full crop of hair

FORMER ALL Blacks and

has revealed he underwent hair

transplant surgery last year,

during a chat with Brodie and

Fitzy on The Hits.

“I have turned a new leaf

in my life and I am bringing

back (the hair),” said Dagg,

while popping in for a chat with

the Christchurch

breakfast team.

“We can confirm

you have had some

hair treatment

done?” asked Fitzy.

“Yes, yes. I am

stoked and happy.

It is just normal hair. It just grows

so it is going to grow forever and

it’s pretty amazing,”

Dagg said.

“It takes like

seven months for it

to grow and once

it grows, it just

grows forever. So

they took like 2000

hairs and planted it and voila, I

got a full crop.”

Dagg said it was “a big procedure”

that required surgeons to

take hair follicles from the back

of his head, to be replanted along

his hairline. He said the procedure

took about eight hours and

hurt a little a bit. He also copped

a bit of flak from his teammates

as he had to wear special headgear

Concerns over cost of swimming lessons

•From page 1

“He loves it, which is really important.

Most of the kids love it.

And all of New Zealand is close

to water so it’s all about starting

to build that confidence early.”

Four-year-old Harry McGuire’s

mother Charlotte estimates she

spends about $500 per term on

her three children’s swimming

lessons.

While she was in a “fortunate”

situation where she could afford

the fees, she said not everyone

was so lucky.

The fees are ridiculously high.

I still think there should be some

form of subsidy because with

three kids it gets really expensive,”

she said.

“But you’ve got to make it

work. It’s once a week and I only

work part-time, so we manage.”

She would prioritise lessons

over other extracurricular activities

if necessary because she felt

swimming was such a vital skill.

Water Safety New Zealand

chief executive Jonty Mills said it

was concerning to hear that cost

was a barrier for any child getting

lessons.

“Whether it be a parent paying

for private lessons or a school trying

to get students into the pool.

We are working with councils

and aquatic education providers

to find ways to make it more accessible,”

he said.

“This why a major focus for us

is getting our Water Skills for Life

initiative into every New Zealand

primary school. Water Skills

for Life is taught in school, is relatively

low cost, easy to teach and

fun to learn.”

City council head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox

said New Zealand has one of

the worst drowning rates in the

developed world.

“We all need to be aware of the

risks around water and learn to

swim as a fundamental skill so

that we can safely enjoy a range

of situations,” Mr Cox said.

“Drowning remains the

third-highest cause of accidental

death in this country after road

FAST FACTS

•78 per cent were men.

accidents and fall.”

Nearly 90 per cent of respondents

cited water safety and

learning to survive as the most

important reasons for swimming

lessons.

The survey was sent to all

schools in Christchurch to give

out to caregivers. There were 324

responses.

The city council-run programmes

at Graham Condon,

Jellie Park, Pioneer and Taiora:

QEII Recreation and Sport Centres

range in price from about $10

or $26 for an individual lesson

per week.

The number of children enrolled

fluctuates between 4400

and 5000 pupils at any time, Mr

Cox said.

The city council also runs

Swimsafe through schools, which

delivers 103,000 lessons a year

and provides free swimming at

the recreation and sport centres

for pre-school children during

the school term.

Swimming instructor and Fit

and Abel manager Dan Abel

said there was no one solution to

build water confidence.

“Price is a barrier, but it’s location,

demand, time and price that

all come into play.”

Mr Abel said if parents can’t afford

swimming lessons, surf life

saving clubs could also help.

“Mum and dad also need to be

confident swimmers. Going out

and playing in the water, spending

time in the water can really help.”

Mr Abel said it was important

children spent time at beaches

and rivers to build confidence in

the natural environment.

“Beaches, rivers and estuaries

are the places drownings happen.

Kids need to learn how to swim

in those environments.”

Surf Life Saving New Zealand

southern regional manager Stu

Bryce said confidence in the

water was important to help any

potential rescue.

“From a surf lifesaving point

of view, it makes our lives a lot

easier when someone is confident

in the water.”

Cranford St traffic plan to cope

A new study highlights

how traffic will be

Cranford St and Bealey

A CLEARWAY and more traffic

42,000 vehicles streaming into

A major report released

City council data shows about

21,000 vehicles travelled down

Suburbs close to the city popular with

‘I couldn’t see

myself moving, I

want to retire here’

• By Julia Evans

“I REALLY, really believe its

an up-and-coming area.”

Those are the words of

homeowner Kerry Cain who

has lived on Walton St in

Sydenham for nine years.

She said when she and her

husband Michael first moved

into the area, there was little

more than one block of shops.

“Since the earthquake, it’s

become more vibrant. Before

then at The Colombo there

was just Spotlight, but now

you’ve got everything you

need,” she said.

But it’s not just the

convenient shopping that

has been a drawcard for Mrs

Cain, who said she “hates” big

shopping malls.

“It’s just handy to

everything. Nice and central.

I work at the hospital, so I

can walk from home since

parking is so bad.”

Her house was under

$200,000 when she purchased

it nine years ago.

“It’s an affordable area, we

paid $162,000 for our place

and I really like the area,” she

said.

“It’s nice, access to town is

just down the road and there

are no big shopping malls

nearby. I hate malls.”

Mrs Cain had lived in other

parts of the city – Papanui,

Spreydon and Waltham – but

Sydenham was by far her

favourite and she would not

be leaving in a hurry.

“But I couldn’t see myself

moving. I’m 57 now and I

Kerry Cain

want to retire here,” she said.

Homeowner George

Hendry said he moved to

Southampton St, Sydenham,

nine years ago after living in

the city’s eastern suburbs.

“Yes, I would say I like

living here. I found after I

moved that it had excellent,

stable ground,” he said.

“But the biggest advantages

is its fairly easy to get to

Brougham St, I travel for

work.”

Mr Hendry said he didn’t

often go into the central

city, but that would be an

advantage for the first home

buyers in the area.

There’s a big concern that

young people can’t get on

the property ladder . . . it’s

reasonably affordable here.”

Christchurch real estate

is in a buyers’ market. So

with a lot of choice for

anyone looking to move,

Julia Evans finds out

what could be the best

suburbs to buy a home

in 2019

THIS YEAR is all about getting

back into the central city – or at

least its outskirts.

That’s the feeling from real

estate agents who say the inner

city and its fringe suburbs such as

Sydenham, Addington, St Albans,

Edgeware and Woolston will be

the place to be in 2019.

Harcourts Gold business owner

Lynette McFadden said buyers

should keep their eyes on fringe

suburbs around the central city,

which were a little cheaper.

“Sydenham like the streets

running around The Colombo

. . . places like Addington too,”

she said.

Homes.co.nz shows average

house prices in Sydenham are

$372,875, $357,026 in Addington,

$349,359 in Edgeware, $501,515

in St Albans and $339,010 in

Woolston.

They don’t feel quite as

conformist and have quite a

cool feeling about them. Like an

early version of Surrey Hills in

Sydney.”

Mrs McFadden said cafes,

restaurants and bars were a big

drawcard, but because it wasn’t

quite the central city, the areas

still had a neighbourhood feel.

UP AND COMING: Sydenham cottages are close to the

city and affordable, making them desirable for first

home buyers.

But new apartments and

townhouses in the central city

would still be in hot demand, she

said.

The inner city will still

attract people, especially with

the resurgence of things

to do and there’s a lot of

choice.”’

However, she said areas

such as St Albans, Papanui

and Strowan, as well as

Halswell would remain

dominant in the market.

There is an unrelenting

demand for properties in

the north-west, especially

around schools and I don’t see

that changing.”

popular suburbs searched online

Halswell, the central city and St

Ray White Metro manager Paul

Addington, Linwood

and Edgeware will be

interesting markets to

watch this year.

They’re all in walking

distance of the central

city and they’re more

affordable and which is

key,” he said.

Real Estate Institute of

New Zealand director Jim Davis

said suburbs at the bottom of the

Port Hills had a lot of activity last

year, which he expected would

continue.

“Spreydon, Hoon Hay,

suburbs below the hills

attracted a lot of good interest

for first home buyers and young

families.”

Mr Davis said fringe suburbs

around the central city would

be sought after due to their

proximity to the CBD, as well as

their affordability.

“St Albans in particular has

really become popular again,” he

said.

back into the city from places

like North Canterbury where

they had moved after the earthquakes.

“It’s all become quite

good again since the

quakes, so we’re seeing

people come back to

Christchurch from North

Canterbury.”

He anticipated more

people would move back

to the city in 2019.

Since the February

22, 2011, earthquake the

region has had a unique market,

bucking trends in regions like

Auckland, Wellington and

Otago.

Christchurch house prices have

increased slightly in three years

to a median of about $494,476,

almost $100,000 under the

national average.

Mr Davis said the steady market

would remain.

“Prices haven’t increased much

over the last two years. They have

plateaued out. I expect that’s

going to be the case for the next

year or so.”

The amount of housing stock

and opportunity would remain

stead over the next 12 months,

he said.

Changes recommended

for city’s parking policy

A STRONGER focus on the

city’s mobility needs and

parking management could be

introduced by the city council.

A hearings panel recommendation

on a new Suburban

Parking Policy would provide

a city-wide strategy to address

competing demands in suburban

streets.

But it would also balance

the needs of people travelling

through suburbs, as well as

those living, working and socialising

in the areas.

It aims to provide greater

consistency in local decisionmaking

and to create safer and

more people-friendly streets.

Several policy changes have

been recommended, including

higher priority for mobility

parking and support for newer

transport forms like scooters.

Hearings panel chairman city

councillor Raf Manji said that

after considering the submissions

and reviewing the recommendations,

the amendments

support safer and more peoplefriendly

streets.

The city’s suburban landscape

has changed,” he said.

These measures are designed

to address several issues in many

of our suburban centres, particularly

parking management

and enforcement.”

City council head of planning

and strategic transport David

Griffiths said the proposed

policy will provide a framework

to guide future suburban parking.

“Our suburban areas all have

different demands for road

space. The implementation of

this policy will allow us to address

local parking issues in a

consistent manner.”

No outcome yet on bid

to block $1m toilet plan

• By Julia Evans

THE OUTCOME of a bid to

scuttle plans for a $1 million

toilet block and changing room

at QE II Park won’t be known

until after a second meeting.

City councillor Glenn Livingstone

says the cost for the

planned 200 sq m building is too

extravagant.

“You can build a good house

for $350,000, which includes

the infrastructure, sewage and

water, so I’m not sure what they

have in mind for $1 million,” he

said.

The Master Plan went before

• By Julia Evans

Thursday January 24 2019

a city council hearings panel

on Monday and it will meet

again on February 4.“But even

then, we might not come to a

recommendation on that day.

It’s a big decision, so we’ve got to

get it right.” It will then make a

recommendation about the plan

to the full city council.

The $12 million in the Master

Plan will go towards the construction

and repair of sporting

facilities that were lost and damaged

in the earthquakes, a new

playground and a community

centre upgrade. Cr Livingstone

said the hearings panel went for

a site visit to QE II yesterday.

Decision on plan to lower speed

limits due to be made today

CITY COUNCILLORS will

today decide whether to lower

speed limits in the central

city, in spite of public feedback

largely opposing in the plan.

Almost two thirds of the 737

submissions on the city council’s

plan did not support dropping

the speed limit from 50km/h to

30km/h on parts of St Asaph St

and Hagley and Riccarton Aves.

The hearings panel’s recommendations

will go before the

full city council at its meeting

today.

The recommendations support

reducing St Asaph St and Hagley

Ave to 30km/h. It also recommends

lowering the section of

Oxford Tce and Antigua St to

10km/h outside the new hospital

outpatients building. However,

the panel did not support changing

Riccarton Ave to 30km/h.

I can almost guarantee that it’s

You get all caught up in parenting

Getting a little bit of that for a

and has, honestly, left a positive

mark on the whole week.

And all of that was thanks to

the willingness of my mum and

step-dad to wade into the fray

anxiety.

Every week, at least once, Vittoria

Players flock to giant

outdoor arcade game

• By Sophie Cornish

LAST YEAR, more than

five million aliens were

destroyed on the corner of

Tuam and High Sts.

Those aliens were part

of a giant outdoor arcade

game set up by Gap Filler

called Super Street Arcade.

Figures released recently

showed the game was

played 127,475 times last

year.

The cold did not deter

keen players, with the most

popular day being in the

middle of winter, on June

10, when a little less than

1000 games were played in

one day.

This was closely followed

on December 19, with 963

games played.

The game, which is

the first of its kind in

the world, is similar to a

space invaders, but has

been adapted with a local

spin.

Players have to save

Christchurch icons, which

were selected by Gap Filler,

based on suggestions from

the public.

Some of these include

The Cathedral, the former

container mall and the

corgi statues outside C1

Espresso.

The game, which is a

little over two years old,

was made by local game

developer, Brent Silby, with

help from about 50 other

local companies.

Gap Filler project manager

Damian Doyle said

the statistics were “mindblowing.”

“It’s incredible to see it

used so much. We knew it

would be popular but it is

mind-blowing how popular

it is.”

“We really wanted to

make gaming active. It’s

Early maps on display at Turanga

EARLY MAPS showcasing

Māori place names for

Canterbury will be on display for

the first time.

Kā Huru Manu (the Ngāi Tahu

Cultural Mapping Project) will

be at the Southbase gallery in

the central city library, Turanga,

from Saturday.

The exhibition complements

the interactive online Ngāi Tahu

Atlas, Kā Huru Manu that has

been compiled by Ngāi Tahu

over the past decade.

It features more than 1200

traditional Māori place names in

the South Island.

The exhibition will feature

reproductions of six hand-drawn

maps of the Canterbury region,

some of which date back to the

1890s.

Each map is accompanied by

an iPad that can be used to look

up information about its history.

Unique artefacts will also be

on display, including original

19th-century correspondence

that will also be on show for the

first time.

Raising profile

of central city

businesses

• By Julia Evans

BUSINESSES IN the central city

are hoping to bolster their profile

with a new improvement scheme.

Central City Business Association

manager Paul Lonsdale said

its focus this year is on developing

a business improvement scheme,

which would help structure the

development in the area.

“It’s more like implementing a

business model for promotion, security

and that kind of thing. Like

a suburban mall’s management

office,” he said.

Mr Lonsdale said it would be

another way to help the central

city compete with suburban shopping

centres.

“All they have over us is a roof,”

he said.

But the central city had its own

platform that it was competing for

customers on, he said.

Association chairman Brendan

Chase said more details of the

improvement scheme would be

confirmed after its committee

meeting.

“What it should do is solidify

our funding stream and give us a

heftier budget,” he said.

Mr Chase said it would help

improve “all aspects” of the CBD.

Steve Lowndes

Travelling the world paved way

Environment Canterbury

chairman Steve Lowndes

is not planning to run

in October’s local body

elections. Sophie Cornish

speaks to him about life

after local politics, Brexit,

and family

The ECan elections are

coming up this year and I

understand you may not be

running again, is that correct?

Yes, that’s my position at the

moment. It is never finally settled

until the time for nominations

to close, but at the moment, that

is what I am thinking. I will be

73 at the time of the election, I

would be 77 by the end of the

next term. I feel fit and well

enough but on the other hand

I really think a person younger

than me needs to take the lead.

There is nothing wrong with

being old, you have a degree of

wisdom and all those sorts of

things that are invaluable in local

government. But, the world is

changing very quickly and there

are a lot of very tough decisions

that need to be made. I am very

much aware that young people

are getting very concerned about

their future. It is they who need

to step up and get engaged in

local government. When I say

young, we have a councillor Lan

Pham. She’s terrific. She brings

an attitude and energy which is

inspiring to the council. There

are other younger councillors

too. I think it would be better

to step aside and let somebody

younger take over.

What will you do instead with

your time?

I have never been frightened

of time. I have done all sorts

of things in my life and being

frightened of time isn’t one of

them. I can paint, I can write,

I can do all sorts of things.

Nothing is ever really over, the

fact that I stepped down from

ECan doesn’t necessarily mean I

will completely leave the public

forum. I have no plans at all. It is

a wonderful space to be in, where

you don’t have to worry about

your future.

Tell me about the beginning

RELAXED:

ECan

chairman

Lowndes

Flat home.

of your career – how did it all

begin?

I was born and educated in

England and I went to art school

in the 1960s. My first job was as

an art teacher. After a little while

of that I thought: ‘Oh my god

am I going to be doing this for

the next 45 years?’ That sort of

freaked me out a little bit. So I got

a cargo boat to South America. I

ended up living there for a year

and a half year, mostly in Rio de

Janeiro, Brazil. I really enjoyed the

experience. From there I travelled

over land through South America

and Central America and the Caribbean

and the United States and

eventually arrived back in England.

And I thought: ‘Oh well that

was good.’ My ambition then was

to carry on. So I began working

in England again, as a publican,

which meant that I could save

money. I did that with my partner

Lisa Potts and then we set off on a

huge journey which basically took

us around the world.

Where did you travel to?

We went through Russia,

Afghanistan, Iran, around India

and ended up in Australia. On

our trip, we only took one tiny

aeroplane flight; the rest was by

truck and train. Australia was

very kind to us; we both became

Australian and lived there for a

while. Then we got a boat across

the Pacific and it called in at

Auckland. That was my first

experience of New Zealand, in

1974. Then our boat carried on

and went through the Panama

Canal and back to Europe. I

then lived in England again and

thought we would go travelling

once more. So we got a plane to

New York and brought a car then

started driving around the US.

for chairman’s role at ECan

We had all sorts of adventures

in the US and Canada. We ended

up in San Francisco. At that point

Lisa became pregnant and a

friend Robyn we were travelling

with said: ‘Why don’t you go to

New Zealand, it’s a great place

to have kids’. So we did that. In

retrospect it is hard to imagine

that we didn’t head home, but no,

we came to New Zealand. We arrived

and brought a van in 1979

and started driving around. We

ended up in Akaroa and Lisa saw

the hospital there and said: “This

is where I will have the baby.”

Julian is now nearly 40-years-old.

He has a sister Alicia and they

both live in Australia, one in Sydney

and one in Melbourne. Lisa

and I split up in about 1998 and

my partner now is Susan

Morrow. We live at Birdlings Flat

and have been here for 20 years.

Tell me about your life living

in Akaroa?

The peninsula for me was representative

of a community, I had

spent 13 years travelling around

the world, community was something

I didn’t have, I didn’t belong

somewhere. Akaroa had a population

of about 700 people, a little

more than it does currently. It was

a self-sustaining little community

based on farming and fishing,

quite different to what it is today.

It was really a holiday destination

for Cantabrians, before it was

discovered by international tourists,

that began to happen in the

mid-1980s. Now, it is somewhat

overrun by cruise ships. It’s not

quite the same place it was in the

1970s, which is what attracted me

to it, a part from the fact it was

devastatingly beautiful. When you

went to live there, people were delighted

to know you had chosen to

live in that community, so you felt

part of it straight away. I started

off as a builder’s labourer, building

an extension to the school. I

gradually started to do work at the

Akaroa Museum and eventually

the curator retired and I was hired

to curate the collection. I was

there for about 15 years. I ended

up being chairman of the Museums

Association of New Zealand.

What happened next?

Then I became a Banks Peninsula

district councillor, with a

gentleman named Bob Parker and

we disbanded ourselves. The district

council wasn’t bankrupt, but

it was heading that way. There was

only about 7000 ratepayers which

wasn’t enough when we had to pay

for all things tourism. We tried to

amalgamate with city council, but

the people of Christchurch said

no. They didn’t want to take on

Banks Peninsula. So we decided

to vote to abolish ourselves and

the city council had no option

but to take over, this was in about

2005-2006. I stood for the city

council in 2006, and was defeated

by Claudia Reid. Then I started

painting, which is where I began,

by going to art school in the first

place. In 2016, someone said to be

why don’t you stand for ECan in

the election. You may recall that

in 2010, the Government took

away the commission of the elected

members of ECan and replaced

them with seven commissioners.

That continued for two terms of

local government until 2016. Then

ECan was opened up to partial

democratic elections. The chairwoman

Margaret Bazley finished,

so that left six ex-commissioners.

There were seven elected members

and six were remains of the old

appointed councillors and that

situation still remains. When

the council convened for the

first time, they voted for David

Bedford into the chair, he was one

of the councillors. Unfortunately,

David wasn’t very well and he died

in February of last year. For some

time he had been unable to fulfil

his role. I had been elected deputy

chair and I became the acting

chair until he resigned and then I

was elected into the chair role.

ECan chair not frightened by time

•From page 19

So the role for me has been one

of managing the council back

to full democracy, which will

take place in October. A thing I

have been keen to do is see that

climate change becomes front

and central of ECan’s thinking.

That has come about with the

newly-elected people who arrived

on council in 2016, they have

made a huge difference.

What did you learn from your

travelling experiences?

I feel sometimes that all the

roads I have travelled have led

to this point. So I have a huge

amount of experience of the

world at large and of different

kinds of people and how to deal

with them. I find all the skills I

learnt while travelling fit me very

well for the role of managing

a great number of people who

have very different and distinct

interests. It is really about people.

A Maori proverb that helps to

describe me politically is – He

aha te mea nui o te ao He tangata,

he tangata, he tangata. What is

the most important thing in the

world? It is the people, it is the

people, it is the people. People are

the same everywhere all around

the world, it doesn’t matter if

you meet an Indian on the banks

of the Amazon River or an

TALENT: Steve Lowndes has a love of art, especially

painting.

American senator, we all laugh,

we all cry, we all smile. It’s the

universality of people. We are all

the same species.

How does living in England

compare to living in New

Zealand?

I have been here for 40 years,

my immediate family in England

has died, I have a few cousins

left, I write to them. England

is about the same size, but the

population of New Zealand is

what the population of England

was at the time of Henry VIII.

Now you have to imagine the

same land mass, with nearly 60

million people. It is nothing like

New Zealand. Last week, Sue and

I went to Jackson’s Bay, down

south. We stayed in a bach which

had no power, no connectivity.

When you walked to the beach,

there are no other houses, and

there is an absolutely stunning

empty landscape of mountains,

oceans, beaches. You would

have to go a long way in Britain

to find that, maybe in the north

of Scotland. It’s a completely

different experience living

here. It is one where we relate

very much to the land. At the

moment with Brexit, the English

have got themselves into a cleft

stick. They have this incredibly

binary situation to deal with,

half of them think they should

stay in the common market and

fight and the other half thinks

they should flee. Human beings

always have that decision, when

confronted with a situation, fight

or flight. It’s such a basic division

in our minds, I think that is

basically what is happening

with Brexit. So, I don’t envy the

English at all. I can’t even begin

to contemplate how I feel about

England anymore, because it

seems to belong to another era.

In the future when climate

change really begins to kick in,

New Zealand is wonderfully

placed to survive the worst

effects. We are surrounded by

ocean which takes away the

worst effects of heat, we can feed

ourselves, Australia can’t, Europe

can’t, 90 per cent of the world’s

population lives in the Northern

Hemisphere.

Tell me about your

family?

Julian, my son, works for

Skope, a Christchurch company

that makes refrigerators. He

manages their operations in

Australia. He has a son, who is

6-months-old. Alicia works for

an advertising agency called The

Monkeys, living in Melbourne

but she is going to come back

to New Zealand. She managed

to buy a third of a house in

Auckland in Pt Chevalier she’s

going to come back next month.

I am looking forward to her

coming back. My partner Sue’s

daughter Evie also lives in Pt

Chevalier, so those two are very

close.

The women of Lyttelton Gaol

Fire rages, homes at risk

Lyttelton Museum has

unearthed the stories of

more than 800 women

who served sentences

between 1868 and 1913

at the old Oxford St gaol

LYTTELTON GAOL was

once the biggest prison in New

Zealand.

Its Oxford St site is now a

reserve, home to a children’s play

area, rose garden and a clock

tower dedicated to the memory

of Captain Charles Upham VC

and Bar.

The gaol’s first buildings

were constructed in 1851, less

than a year after the arrival of

Canterbury’s European settlers. It

was fully operational by 1868.

There were 149 cells for

men and 29 for women. In

19th century New Zealand,

prison was about punishment,

not reform, and this was the case

at Lyttelton.

Hard labour and frequent short

sentences were normal for many

women. While the men worked

on roads and buildings, female

prisoners toiled in the kitchens

and laundries.

They baked for the orphanage

on Cressy Tce and produced

uniforms for all the prisons

Gaol was overcrowded and cold,

with repeat offenders crammed

in alongside young girls.

After 1913, women were no

longer imprisoned at Lyttelton.

The gaol closed in 1918, and

all prisoners were moved to

Christchurch. It was demolished

by 1923 and the land came under

the control of the Ministry of

Education.

The block of five cells along the

northern wall of the rose garden,

parts of the outer walls and the

steps through the reserve remain

as a reminder of the decades

when this piece of land had a far

less happy purpose.

Lyttelton Museum is just

beginning to understand the

stories of the women who served

time in the port town prison.

What is known so far is that

more than 800 women served

about 2000 sentences at Lyttelton

Gaol between 1868 and 1913 – an

average of about 45 sentences a

year. But the sentences weren’t

evenly spread out. It appears

no women were imprisoned in

Lyttelton during most of the

1880s. It is not yet known why.

Sentences were usually short,

a few days or weeks, but some

women were in and out of

Lyttelton Gaol frequently.

Sisters Bella and Mary

McKegney, for example, were

put there about 80 times between

them over a 20-year period.

Kate Moore was imprisoned 80

times in 17 years. During these

years, there was little in the way

of jobs for women outside the

home.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Locked up in the old Oxford St prison

•From page 21

There was no welfare state,

and no widows, child support or

unemployment benefits.

More than 300 of the sentences

served by women at Lyttelton

relate to having no income, and

another 300 to being homeless.

Being broke and alone was a

bleak prospect for women in

19th century Canterbury.

The first New Zealand prisons

were managed by provincial

governments according to their

own standards and resources.

Women were imprisoned

alongside men from the outset,

although there were always many

more male convicts.

National regulations and

an inspector of prisons were

introduced with centralised

Government in 1876. Attitudes

began to turn towards reform

and providing prisoners with the

skills to reintegrate into society.

The National Council of

Women and the Women’s

Christian Temperance Union,

which had been leaders in

achieving the right for women

to vote in 1893, turned their

attention to prison reform in the

late 1890s.

The groups petitioned the

Government and developed

plans. They also raised funds for

prisoners and became official

visitors. Progress was slow

and focussed mainly on men.

Female prisoners continued to be

thought of as unredeemable.

Decision-makers mainly saw

no reason to change the way

women were imprisoned, because

nothing would help them. While

male prisoners began to learn

trades to prepare for an improved

life upon release, women

continued to mop the floors and

scrub the linen.

But the WCTU pressed on with

calls for reform and particularly

for a women-only prison. New

Zealand’s first female prison

opened at Addington in April

1913. The model was borrowed

from the United States and

included two separate areas – one

focussed on rehabilitation for

younger and minor offenders, the

other on continued punishment

for the older hands.

The reality was different. All

of the women were housed in a

single building and there were

few attempts at education or

reform. By 1901, Irish-born

women made up 6.5 per cent of

Canterbury’s non-Maori female

population, but they served 40

per cent of the women’s sentences

at Lyttelton.

The Irish famine in the late

1840s created a generation of

displaced and orphaned children,

with many making their way

to the English colonies without

support, skills or prospects.

They came of age in the 1860s

and 70s. It is not known whether

any of the women at Lyttelton

Gaol were famine orphans, but

wider historical events almost

certainly contributed to this overrepresentation

of the Irish.

About 10 per cent of the

sentences were served by women

who had been born in New

Zealand. More than 300 of the

women listed their occupation

as prostitute, but only about

100 prostitution offences were

recorded.

Far more frequent was

drunkenness (at more than 650

offences) and anti-social public

offences, like using indecent

language, loitering and disorderly

conduct (at more than 340).

Repeat offending was very

common. Being Irish, publicly

visible, known to the police and

fond of a drink seemed to be

factors which led many women to

Lyttelton Gaol.

Ages are not always recorded,

but the youngest female prisoner

found was the Australian-born

Emily Blackler. At age 14 in 1869,

she was sentenced to seven days’

hard labour for stealing a hat and

locket from an acquaintance.

She never returned to the gaol,

so perhaps the deterrent effect

worked for her.

The oldest woman identified so

far was Irish-born Julia Crowley,

who was sentenced to 12 months

in 1913, aged about 80. This was

her 20th sentence at Lyttelton

Gaol. Her offences related mainly

to drunkenness, disorderly

behaviour and being homeless.

Crowley’s final sentence at

Lyttelton was a long one. But it

may have been seen as a means

of protecting this elderly woman

by providing a roof over her

head. Although her date of birth

is not certain, Crowley would

have been a child during the Irish

famine. She eventually died in

1917.

Known as a ‘fraudster,

impersonator and confidence

trickster’, Amy Bock’s penchant

for deception earned her multiple

sentences between 1886 and 1931.

Of these, the most sensational

occurred in 1909, when Bock

posed as a man and married

the daughter of a south Otago

boarding house owner. It appears

she moved around the country,

committing crimes along the

way. Originally a teacher from

Australia, Bock spent time in

Lyttelton Gaol on four occasions.

The first in 1889 was a sixmonth

sentence for larceny

(stealing) and false pretences

while working as a governess

near Akaroa. She returned for six

months in 1893 after selling her

landlady’s watch, and very soon

after serving sentences in Timaru

and Dunedin.

In 1902, as Molly or May

Shannon – two of a catalogue of

false names – Bock was

sentenced once again to two

years after using deception to

raise funds to buy a poultry

farm. Finally in 1904, she was

sentenced as Amy Chanel to

three years for forgery, having

altered a cheque.

Shortly after her last stay

at Lyttelton Gaol, Bock made

her way south and became the

wealthy sheep farmer, Percival

Leonard Carol Redwood. She

courted then married the

unsuspecting Agnes Ottaway

in April 1909. She was arrested

again four days later and the

marriage was annulled.

Christchurch sisters Mary and

Bella McKegney were repeatedly

in Lyttelton Gaol for causing

mischief.

Mary first appears in the

prisoner release records in

November 1892 (aged 18) and

her elder sister Bella in July 1893

(aged 25).

Both were charged with using

indecent language. From then

on, the sisters – who had a habit

of exchanging names – were

frequent residents at the gaol.

Mary was imprisoned on 41

separate charges and Bella had

34, usually for drunkenness,

vagrancy or disturbing the peace.

By the time of their deaths in

Christchurch, the sisters had

amassed a combined total of

more than 300 convictions.

Actor’s connection to Mandela’s fight

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PLAYING A lead role in a hit

musical celebrating the life of

visionary leader Nelson Mandela

is a “powerful” and “poignant”

moment in Barry Conrad’s

accomplished career.

Born in Cape Town, his

parents were caught up “right

in the thick” of apartheid times

– with his mother being of

German Indonesian descent and

his father South African English.

Conrad, who spent his teens

in Auckland, will be travelling

to the city to portray the

character William Xulu, who is

one half of an inter-racial couple

in Madiba the Musical, running

from February 14-17, at the Isaac

Theatre Royal.

He said the show hits home the

struggle of his own parents.

His mother, who attended

protests and rallies, was even

chased down the street by a

policeman with a baton and had

to jump over a fence onto a train

to escape.

The internationally acclaimed

show portrays the life of the late

Mandela and his fight against

apartheid.

Mandela spent 27 years in

prison for fighting racist white

rule and became South Africa’s

FORBIDDEN LOVE: Barry Conrad as William Xulu and Madeline Perrone as Helena in

arrested in South Africa.. ​

first black president in 1994,

serving one five-year term.

The show marks 25 years since

the abolition of apartheid in

South Africa.

“When I hear my parents talk

about it I can’t believe it was a

reality. It is actually crazy. Could

you imagine going down the

street, not being able to visit a

certain cinema, not being able

to sit in a certain seat, not being

able to date a certain person just

because of the colour of your

skin,” he said.

Conrad said while times

have changed, racism still “rears

its ugly head” – not only in

South Africa but all over the

world.

Currently based in Australia,

Conrad shares a connection

to the city having co-written

music for former boy band

Moorhouse, which was formed

in Christchurch in 2012.

The band was best known for

their appearance in X Factor

New Zealand in 2013, where they

finished fourth place.

Conrad said the city has “so

much character” and loved the

former container mall which

closed last year.

He has been back several

times to perform at the Coca-

Cola Christmas in the Park and

previously toured the city with

former singing/dance groups

Jireh made up of music artists

Ginny Blackmore, Vince Harder

and Bella Kalolo.

Conrad has led an exciting

career working and writing

for artists including Guy

Sebastian, Stan Walker as

well as opening for his

“idol” American singersongwriter

Brian McKnight.

Growing up, Conrad said

Mandela gave him hope he

could make something of

himself.

“I just loved that he always

looked forward, he always had

faith that things could change,”

he said.

GARDENING ADVICE

I have recently had a new ready-lawn laid by a qualified supplier. It’s now sprouting dandelions and tiny fungi (mini

‘mushrooms’). The ground was prepared properly and I did have dandelions in the old lawn but no fungi. I am digging

Q out the dandelions and ensuring no flowers mature. I am also pulling out the fungi daily before they spore, root

included, but they are still appearing in even greater numbers, especially in the moist weather. (I would have a good

meal if they were edible!) Any solutions?

A

Today’s winning question came from Pearl Speyer. Congratulations!

We would strongly recommend immediately

contacting the contractor that laid your ready-lawn.

The problems you describe are usually the result of

inadequate or poor preparation prior to planting the

ready-lawn.

The ready-lawn itself should be carefully inspected prior to

laying, with further inspections made by the contractor at

regular interviews 2-3 months after it has been laid.

The lawn must be of great disappointment to you as the

concept of ready-lawn is the production of an instant, highquality

lawn. We suspect the quality of the ready-lawn laid in

this instance could be the main problem because the issues

you describe should not be experienced so quickly. Contact

the lawn contractor and insist they solve the problems you are

experiencing.

Once your lawn is back to health,

apply our Premium Lawn Fertiliser every 4-5

weeks from late February (avoiding the hot

summer months) until late April, recommencing

from October until Christmas.

PACK!

Regular mulching throughout the hot summer months is vital in helping you maintain a

lush, healthy garden. Apply a thick layer on top of soil around plants, trees and especially

pots, to aid water retention. Avoid watering during the hottest part of the day when plants

are heat stressed; instead water regularly and deeply in the early morning or evening.

A touch of yellow brings vibrancy

You can also add some bright colours to your herb patch

with summer-flowering herbs all in yellow. Marilyn

Wightman has a few suggestions to get you started

THEMED PLOTS featuring a single flower colour can add a new

dimension to your garden.

These yellow herbs have been carefully selected to give the

classical impact of a cottage garden by stacking the tall-growing

herbs at the back

and layering them by size down to the front edge.

•Elecampane (inula helenium)

This is an unusual herb said to be named after Helen of Troy’s

tears. It stays underground for winter, then sends up large,

pale-green leaves in spring. By early summer, the flower-head is

quite spectacular. It eventually grows to about 1m high.

•Golden rod (solidago canadensis)

This is another tall-grower (1m-plus). Its feathery-fronded

flower-heads dangle down in late summer and this perennial, like

elecampane, can be cut back in autumn.

COMPACT:

Yellow

yarrow

grows

to about

50cm.

•Tansy (tanacetum vulgare)

It also grows to about 1m in summer before erupting into a

mass of tiny, yellow, daisy-like flowers. Has a serrated leaf and

can be an ant deterrent when planted near the house.

•Yellow yarrow (achillea filipendulina)

The taller-growing yarrow herb gets to 50cm high and has a

flat flower-head. One of many in the yarrow family, new hybrids

form low, spreading clumps of cheerful yellow all summer long.

CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME

WEEK TWO: Starting out

In week 2 you will extend the time of your sessions by a fraction. The challenge is to keep the intensity

controlled. There is no need to get really puffed and tired. Remember the talk test. If you exercise with

others the talk test comes automatically. If it is just you, talk to yourself but perhaps not too loud!….We can

divide what we call the submaximal pace up in 3 zones.

1. Easy: this is a pace where you are not too puffed and the talk test is not even a test. At this stage this

is the zone you spent most of your time in as it will give you some initial conditioning without the risk of

soreness or muscle strain

2. Steady: this is slightly faster than easy; it can also be called a “firm” pace. It takes a bit more effort to

talk but you can still form sentences without having to take an extra breath

3. Moderately hard: this is the pace where you need that extra breath to finish your sentence. You can still

talk and jog at the same time but it becomes more laborious so you tend to shut up and concentrate more

on your rhythm and holding your pace

To achieve this goal you need to

develop some awareness around the

basic requirements of exercising for

health and fitness. First and foremost

this has to do with 3 key principles:

1. How often do you train? To improve

your level of health and fitness you will

need to aim for 4 sessions per week. 2

or 3 sessions per week will only maintain

what you have and 1 session per week is

definitely not sufficient.

2. How long are your sessions? The

duration of your sessions will generally

build towards between 30 and 50 minutes

with one longer session of 60-80 minutes.

3. What is the right intensity to train at?

The good thing about the programme

is that all your runs will be done at

submaximal pace, also called conversation

pace. That means a pace where you can

still talk. If you can’t talk you are going

too fast and you are likely to come to a

grinding halt sooner or later.

This programme and accompanying information are

written as a guide only. If you are concerned about

your health at any stage please undergo a health

check with your GP.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Make sure you have comfortable

footwear. This will help your enjoyment

and prevent injury. There are a few

specialised sport shoe wear shops in

Christchurch where the sales people are

trained in assisting you to make the right

choice. Comfort is an important part of

your choice and only you can feel that. If

you have issues with your feet you might

decide to consult a podiatrist to get more

professional advice regarding the best

footwear for you.

Mainland ref gets FIFA call-up

• By Gordon Findlater

MIDNIGHT flights out of

Melbourne to Christchurch after

work on a Friday are paying off

for Isaac Trevis in his dream of

refereeing at the FIFA World

Cup.

Two years ago the 30-yearold

Mainland Football referee

relocated to Melbourne after his

wife Krysta received a job opportunity.

However, this hasn’t

stopped Trevis from returning to

Christchurch regularly over the

winter in the hope of gaining a

spot on FIFA’s international list.

After two years of being

nominated for the list by New

Zealand Football but failing to

gain selection, Trevis’ persistence

paid off when he won selection as

an assistant referee this calendar

year.

During the NZ national league

season Trevis leaves Melbourne

at midnight on a Friday, to land

in Christchurch at 5am on Saturday

morning. He then leaves

again on the 9pm flight out on

a Sunday to arrive back at his

apartment around midnight to

return to his day job as an environmental

scientist.

Flights to and from New Zealand

come at his own cost.

HOPEFUL: St Albans became the first club to win 10 premier metro cricket one-day titles last

month. ​

Another bid for national title

• By Gordon Findlater

ST ALBANS will look to win

their first national club cricket

title after defeating Cheviot by

six wickets in the Canterbury

region final on Sunday.

It will be Saints seventh trip

to Auckland’s Cornwall Park

in April. They will be looking

to capture the title for the first

time after finishing runners-up

on their last four visits in 2005,

2012, 2015 and 2016.

There’s a few of us who have

been part of most of those close

ones. We’re looking forward

The motivation is simply to

be nominated by New Zealand

Football to the international list.

For that I needed to continue to

keep operating on the national

league for a number of games

to going up there and having

another crack at it,” said Saints

captain Ben Langrope.

Saints will play six games in

as many days at the tournament,

meaning squad depth and load

management will come into play.

“Spin towards the end of the

tournament will also play a big

part as the pitches start to wear

down,” said Langrope.

On Sunday, Saints gave nothing

away bowling first, conceding

just six fours and one six in 48.2

overs as they dismissed Cheviot

for 107.

Opening duo James Tapper

each year. It comes at a little bit

of a cost, but it’s in the chase of a

dream that I didn’t want to give

up, just because we’ve moved,”

said Trevis.

The dream began in Taranaki

and Bailen Thatcher conceded

just 24 from 18 overs between

them, while Jack Harper (4-25)

and Dan Sharples (4-23) did the

wicket-taking damage.

Set 108 to win, Saints

suffered the loss of Sharples

in the opening over, but were

otherwise in command during

the chase thanks to a rapid 44

off 32 deliveries from Tyler

Lortan.

Langrope finished the match

off in style with a six and four

fours down the ground to wrap

up the win with more than 30

overs to spare.

Good form gives

golfer trifecta chance

RANGIORA’S Kazuma Kobori

has given himself a chance to

complete a trifecta after winning

the Canterbury Strokeplay men’s

title at Pegasus Golf Club at the

weekend.

The win came on the back of

his recent Southland strokeplay

victory. He is a favourite to

complete the trifecta when he

plays in the Otago Strokeplay

this weekend. He could also

collect the major spoils from

the House of Travel Tour

Championship than runs across

all three tournaments.

Kazuma had fine rounds of

67 and 68 on Saturday to give

himself a five-shot lead.

All he needed was a 73 on

Sunday in the 54-hole event to

cruise home with a three-shot

victory. His closest rivals were

Nic Kay and Reid Hilton. Kay

will rue his second round 81

after he had shot a course record

64 (off the blue tees) in the

morning. He closed with the best

third round score of 66 but it was

not enough to round up Kobori.

The women’s championship

turned into a two-horse race

between Juliana Hung and Roun

Lee.

They were tied after 36

holes and had a close battle

throughout the final round. The

pivotal hole was probably their

ninth hole when Juliana made

an uncharacteristic mistake off

assistant referee course. We got

paid about $5 for each game,”

said Trevis.

The following year Trevis

took a full referee course and

gained selection to the national

league by the end of his high

school years. He then carried

on his referee development when

he moved to Christchurch in

2007.

“We’re lucky in New Zealand,

it looks a realistic dream. If you

look at the last three World Cups

we’ve had referee teams there.

We can talk to guys that have

been there and done and operate

with them,” said Trevis.

He will return home on

Saturday before flying to Nelson

to operate as an assistant referee

in Tasman United’s match

against Waitakere United on

Sunday.

New Zealand currently has

four assistants and three full referees

on the FIFA international

list. Trevis is one of two current

Mainland Football FIFA officials,

joining Chris Sinclair, who retained

his FIFA futsal refereeing

badge for 2019.

Trevis also referees in the top

state league in Victoria and has

hopes of refereeing at A-League

level in the future.

Jamie Duff has been in

the local stocks have been

further boosted by the return

to Christchurch of Matt

Karena has spent

preparing his body

for the NBL.

“Successful

teams often feature

presence and with

Mike we have this

focal point. He is

to come in a little leaner and

is also honing his skills as he

works towards taking his career

that next step,” said Downer.

Gold Cup on the line at Ruapuna

Leversedge, who has been racing

in Auckland for the past couple

of seasons.

“Jamie is always a force to be

reckoned with. The Gold Cup is

an event that Duff Motorsport

have targeted this year and he’s

a really tough campaigner,” said

Daly.

“He recently became the

first South Island driver to

win a sprintcar feature at the

iconic Western Springs track

in Auckland. Plenty of good

drivers haven’t done that.”

“It’s going to be really

interesting to see how our boys

stack up against the visitors . . .

they go against 17-year-old

American Buddy Kofoid. He’s a

sensation.”

Kofoid won his first

touted as the next big thing in

the US.

‘Harsh reality’

of pay equality

WOMEN’S SPORTS can’t cry

out for pay equality until they put

bums on seats. Sorry, but that’s

the harsh reality.

There’s no denying we have

seen a refreshing change to the

accessibility of women’s sports

in recent times. Rugby has

led the way, with Black Ferns

internationals and the provincial

competition regularly screening

on Sky Sports.

This undoubtedly played a

major role in the Black Ferns

going professional last year.

More recently, the women’s

Super Smash domestic T20

cricket competition was televised

for the first time. At the weekend,

our Canterbury Magicians went

down to the Wellington Blaze by

four wickets in a dramatic final

that went down to the final ball.

Since then, former Black

Caps wicketkeeper-batsman

and now radio commentator,

Peter McGlashan, and a number

of players have hit out at New

Zealand Cricket about pay

inequality in the domestic game.

They pointed out the winners

of the women’s competition

received no prize-money, but the

men’s winners next month will

receive $80,000. There’s currently

15 women on professional

contracts with NZC.

This isn’t just a conversation

taking place in New Zealand.

I recently returned from

the Australian Open, where

THREE PODIUM finishes from

as many races has left Jaden

Ransley right on the tail of the

Toyota 86 Championship leader

after four rounds.

Ransley’s weekend at Teretonga

Park in Invercargill got

off to a promising start

as he qualified for the

opening race in pole

position after setting a

blistering pace in wet

conditions.

However, he would

have to settle for second

in the opening race,

with championship

leader Jordan Baldwin taking the

honours after getting the better

of the starts off the line.

In race two, Ransley led the

15-lap race from start to finish

but stewards awarded him a 5sec

penalty for moving early as the

red lights went out and he was

pay equality is the biggest

conversation outside of the

Bernard Tomic v Lleyton Hewitt

war that has arisen on the back of

Tennis Australia’s clear lack of a

‘no dickheads’ policy.

The tennis pay equality

conversation is a different

can of worms. Since 2007, all

four grand-slams have given

equal prize-money. However,

the world’s top men’s players

earn more than their women

counterparts over a year based on

prize-money per tournament.

We could get into the debate

that men play the best of five-sets

at grand-slams, but the one thing

I’ve taken from my few occasions

walking around Melbourne Park

is that the men’s games in general

attract far more bums on seats.

Surely that’s the biggest

indication when it comes to

marketability and revenue

return?

It’s hard to think that in the

1990s there would have been

a case for men’s rugby to go

professional without big matches

selling out the likes of Eden Park

and Lancaster Park.

Do we see anything close to the

same crowd numbers at women’s

cricket or rugby compared to the

men’s games? It’s great that we’re

finally paying some well overdue

attention to top flight women’s

sports, but let’s not get ahead of

ourselves by going full bore pc

with pay equality.

Ransley in prime position to

challenge for Toyota 86 lead

ultimately demoted to third.

Ransley took his revenge in

the third race on Sunday with

a dominant win. His victory

of more than 6sec was also the

biggest winning margin in the

championship this season

so far.

However, it wasn’t

enough to deny Baldwin

the round with the

Aucklander claiming the

runner-up spot in the final

The Songs and Their Stories

FOR the first time since being inducted into

the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame, as the

returns for 'Home Again Tour II'.

decades with 6 studio albums, 7 New

Zealand Music Awards, 6 Australian

Countdown Awards, an APRA Silver

Scroll and many hits that have made her

a household name. Sharon has written for

and with other artists including Dragon

and Robert Palmer.

Although she oen performs in mixed

artist shows in NZ and Australia, it is a

rare event for Sharon to present a full

show of her own material.

Fans can expect some changes in song

line up from last years concerts, but still

with favourites like 'Maxine', 'Words',

'Lucks on Your Table', 'Danger' and 'Asian

Paradise', along with gems from the

Smash Palace Movie and some new

compositions. Sharon tells the stories of

the songs and about the writing and

recording of her hits. It is an intimate and

enjoyable evening, close up and personal,

with one of our most cherished singer

songwriters.

Sharon will be accompanied by a 7

piece band on the 'Home Again II Tour'

including her partner and musical

director Alan Manseld (Dragon, Robert
