Greater Hornby Residents’ Association

His solution is to have the

cycleway runs from Carmen Rd to

A BIG moment in Hornby’s history looms

over Easter – the bowls club’s 100th


On page 8 today, we go over the club’s

history (supplied by the bowls club – many

thanks), which originally started in 1919 as

the Paparua Bowling Club.

And the club’s first president had a very interesting name:

Julius Caesar. He was a local farmer.

By 1928, the club needed a name change. Bowlers from the

city mistook the club for a prison club and would head out to

the jail. So it became the Hornby Bowling Club. In 1990 it was

renamed Hornby Domain Bowling Club to avoid confusion

with the Hornby Working Mens Bowling Club.

In 2006, the club was given its current name Bowls Hornby.

Have a great celebration!

Oak trees saved from axe

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A STAND of contentious oak

trees in Upper Riccarton have

been saved from the axe.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board has

declined a request from Villa

Grove residents to have 22 oak

trees removed from their street.

The decision was delayed for

about six months as a result

of board members wanting to

inspect the streets themselves

and not all

residents previously


aware of the



News reported



in September

a 24-signature

petition was

presented to

the community board calling

for the trees to be removed.

Residents had complained

in the past the trees were a

nuisance because of an excess

of leaves, some of which were lit

by party-goers. Anxiety in high

winds was also a problem.

They had asked the trees be

replaced with smaller and more

suitable trees for the area.

Instead, city council staff

will remove the tree leaves

once a month during May and

June, and greater frequency if

required in exceptional circumstances,

such as bad weather.

Community board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton

said the city council will continue

to remove the tree leaves

monthly but over the winter

months the trees are barren.

Because the majority of the

trees were in healthy condition, it

was recommended they remain.

They were also taller than

6m meaning they are protected

under the city council district

plan and would need resource

consent to fell.

Riccarton Road is

for business


Mrs Broughton also told the

board at a public meeting on

Tuesday petition creator Paula

Stevens had accepted the decision.

Ms Stevens has also told Mrs

Broughton that she could no

longer lead the petition. This

was due to several of the people

who had signed the petition

having died or have moved.

Western News was unable to

contact Ms Stevens.

Mrs Broughton said if

residents were concerned by the

decision, they could come back

to the community board in six

to 12 months.



trees at Villa

Grove will not

be removed.

She said one of the problems

residents on front sections faced

were issues with acorns dropping

onto their properties.

“The whole front lawn gets

tangled up with acorns and then

if you are not very good at bending,

picking them up it becomes

difficult,” she said.

But chairman Mike Mora said

it becomes a complex issue when

a resource consent is required

for removing every tree over a

certain height.

“If they are really concerned

about the leaves they can always

rake them up and put them in

the green bin,” he said.




In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk


The front counter at the Hornby

Police Station re-opened to the

public on Wednesday. All front

counter services other than the

Christchurch Central Police

Station’s were closed as a result of

the terror attacks.


The green light has been given for

a new car park to be installed at

the south side of Halswell Domain.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board approved for

the car park to go ahead at its

meeting on Tuesday. It would be

located along the Edward Stafford

Ave frontage. The park would

help alleviate parking pressure as

a result of the Halswell Domain

having high use, especially on

Saturday during winter.


Tree mulch will be removed

from Denton Park following

concerns raised by the Greater

Hornby Residents’ Association

treasurer Ross Houliston. He was

concerned the tree mulch behind

Denton Oval was an “extremely

high fire risk”. City council

community parks manager Al

Hardy said while an exact date

had not been finalised the mulch

will be removed and utilised at

other garden beds throughout the

city for weed suppression.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Bilateral anal Gland SurGery

Anal gland issues are

common problems

we see in our canine

patients today. The

anal gland has no

real function except

it’s the dogs “special

scent” or parfum.

This secretion has a

distinctive fish smell

to it making it very

unpleasant for us,

plus its heaving with

bacteria! Not a good

look or smell on the

new sofa.

Dogs present

because of pain and anal irritation leading

to scooting, licking or biting of the area.

Often it’s too painful for these dogs to toilet

so they become constipated. Severe cases

become infected and the anal sacs swell and

can eventually burst, discharging pus either

outwardly or inwardly around the perineum.

Occasionally anal sac fistulas develop which

persist for ages. Impaction of anal sacs can

lead to toxaemia and dermatitis. Some dogs

present because they leak anal gland fluid

constantly which becomes very difficult to live

with if your dog is an indoor pet.

No one really knows why anal glands become

a problem. Some cases present due to

diarrhoea, constipation or anal sphincter

laxity. Some cases are related to anal duct

obstruction which leads to infection,

abscessation and sometimes rupture of the

sac. Other cases are due to hypersecretion

which can happen with food allergies, thyroid

diseases and infectious skin disease.

Whatever the cause, my job is to rectally

express them which isn’t particularly nice for

the patient as often by this stage they are

painful. It is a procedure mostly I can perform


If the anal sacs are infected I either prescribe

antibiotics systemically or I instill an antibiotic/

anti-inflammatory ointment into the sacs for

2-3 treatments. Sometimes a prescription food

is recommended ( either for food allergies or

a diet high in fiber) and revisits are advised to

check the sacs.

In chronic, recurring and difficult cases that

don’t respond to

medical therapy,

often the best

option is bilateral

surgical removal.

This option can

completely eliminate

the disease and

make the owners

and dogs’ life far

more bearable. Dogs

can live without

these anal sacs – it’s

just a fiddley surgery

and great care has

to be taken when

working around the

anus to avoid incontinence issues.

I have had lots of practice removing anal

glands over the past 30 years – so much so

that I get referrals from other clinics.

Juno, a young Labrador cross is having

bilateral anal gland surgery. Juno presents

every 2-3 months with anal glands that just

leak and wreek everywhere. They are not

infected nor painful to squeeze. She has

received various medical treatments and is on

a Royal Canin hypoallergenic diet, but nothing

seems to help.

The surgery takes roughly 60-90 minutes,

because I am very careful around this delicate

area. Juno is maintained throughout the

surgery on intravenous fluids and Megan

my surgical nurse is monitoring all her vitals

(heart rate, temperature, respiratory rate, body

temperature and oxygen saturation) to ensure

a safe anaesthetic and quick recovery.

Juno was a star patient and the two anal

glands were removed. She was discharged

on antibiotics, pain medications and local

anaesthetic cream to apply to the surgical

area. I recommended an E collar to wear

initially to stop her worrying her surgical site

and a soft diet 5 days post surgery.

My advice is – don’t struggle with this

problem in your family cat or dog as it’s

not going away. These glands have no vital

function and can be removed safely and

effectively in the right surgical hands, leading

to a better quality life without the nasty


Dr Michele McMaster

IDEA: Greater Hornby Residents’ Association treasurer Ross Houliston has

presented an alternative cycleway route to the city council. ​

Alternative cycleway idea

•From page 1

He said the alternative

route would make it easy

for Hornby schools to join

up to, few pedestrians use

Branston St and it

would go through

all the industrial

areas including

past Gough CAT


In February the

city council went

out for consultation

on the cycleway

which runs from

Templeton through to the

central city, which it has

received a high volume of

submissions on.

For Hornby, the city

council is proposing the

cycleway run from the

Waterloo Rd/Gilberthorpes

Rd intersection through

Waterloo Rd and Hei Hei

Rd, Buchanans Rd and

Carmen Rd.

The route will also travel

through Sockburn, Upper

Riccarton and Riccarton.

Mr Houliston has

previously criticised the

city council’s proposal with

concerns changes

to Hei Hei Rd

could mean losing

car parking on

the east side

across from St



He was also

concerned about

the narrowing of

intersections Tirangi and

Aurora St and Keri Keri

Place with Hei Hei Rd.

City council’s transport

planning and delivery

manager Lynette Ellis

said the city council has

received Mr Houliston’s

alternative route but has

not had the chance to

determine if it is viable.

Meanwhile, Mr

Houliston has questioned

Ross Houliston

why some of the proposed

roads for the cycleway

project had been labelled

committed contractually

in the city council’s draft

annual plan.

But Ms Ellis said an

administrative error

resulted in the roads being

incorrectly classified and

will be corrected in the

final annual plan.

She confirmed the roads

had not been committed

contractually for the

cycleway project.

But Mr Houliston said:

“If that is an administrative

error, how many other

administration errors

are there in the draft

annual plan and does it

need to be completely reinvestigated?”

Turner writes

about Hornby’s

youth being an

important part

of the community’s future

It was a Monday morning and

I was driving through Hornby;

it was obvious that it had been a

busy weekend for some.

Fences, power boxes, and Denton

Park had been targeted.

As I arrived at the Hornby

Community Centre, I noticed it

hadn’t been spared either – taggers

had been hard at work.

I agree with giving individuals

the opportunity to express


I appreciate creativity, whether

it be with language, music or

art, but I draw the line (no pun

intended) at tagging.

It was hard not to be annoyed

as I cleaned off the taggers’ work,

but it gave me time to question


Maybe I am naïve but I just

don’t get it.

Is it a one-fingered salute to

society, or are some of our youth

trying to tell us something?

Frustration? Boredom? Are

they just letting the world know

that they are here? Whatever the

reasoning, our community needs

to take notice of it.

There have been many conversations

since the earthquakes

about what is lacking for Hornby.

Our youth are part of our community

who need to be involved

in those conversations, along

with many other sectors.

These conversations are

important for the future of our

More time to save Yaldhurst hall

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE PRESSURE on Yaldhurst

residents to come up with a

business case to save their hall

has been lifted.

The city council has not made

The city council has put aside

about $80,000 for the demolition

over time if the city council has

more pressing needs.

Committee member Michelle

Clark said it still wants to move

quickly on repairing the hall.

She said the committee has

done a substantial amount of

work on the business case but

it needs to finalise some of the

costs to determine how the

strengthening of the hall can be


The committee’s key priorities

are to repair the hall’s roof and to

bring it up to 67 per cent of the

New Building Standard.

The roof repairs are estimated

to cost about $5000, while the

cost of strengthening the hall is

still being finalised.

“We want to establish the

building is over 37 per cent (of

the New Building Standard),

which means we can get in (and)

clean it up,” Miss Clark said.

The committee’s engineer

believes the hall is above 37

per cent of the New Building


However, an agreement needs

to be established between the

committee to put forward a new

is to the spouting on the roof,

These facilities are allowing us to develop a

curriculum that caters for individual needs,

that supports student passions, and helps

our students to grow their heart for their

community, while emphasising our values

and promoting the ethos of kindness, of

manaaki. We are also committed to engaging

Middleton Grange School was

established in 1964 with the aim of

providing a first rate general education

and biblically based teaching in the

Christian faith. We see learning not

as an end in itself but something that

happens alongside the development of

character and a desire to serve God by

serving others.

We look forward to seeing our young

people excelling in academic, sporting,

cultural and service activities with a

sense of personal achievement. We also

want them to identify the strengths,

skills, talents and abilities that God has

put within each one of them, not just

for their personal benefit, but for the

benefit of the communities that they

live in. Serving others with compassion

and kindness is part of the ‘DNA’ of

Middleton Grange School. We want our

young people to engage in the society

and culture that they live in, to be a

positive influence and to point others to

God by their example.

We appreciate the hard work that

staff and students put into producing

top academic results, but what we value

even more highly is wisdom, character,

integrity and a willingness to help and

encourage others.

This is summed up in our school

motto ‘Character, Excellence, Service for

the Glory of God.

St Thomas believe

the best preparation

for life is an

education in a caring

diverse environment

At St Thomas’ we believe that the best

preparation for life is an education which

fosters excellence in a caring, diverse

environment. Our staff are committed

to guiding our students through a broad

range of spiritual, learning, culture,

sporting and service opportunities

in order to develop young men with

“educated hearts and educated minds”.

We are a state integrated Catholic

school for a maximum of 615 students

from Years 7 to 13. Our size enables us to

provide individual attention and develop

close relationships with our students in

order for them to develop a healthy selfimage,

relaxed but confident personal

skills, and a positive outlook on life.

We are a high performing academic

boys’ school and as such, maintain a clear

focus on boys’ needs and the pathway

from boyhood to manhood. We will

provide your son with adventure, testing

of courage and strong, good male role


We want the young men who graduate

from our College to be men of justice and

compassion, who believe they have much

to offer the world in order for it to be a

better place.

Steve Hart, Principal

St Thomas of Canterbury College

Giving boys the

opportunity to be great

St Bede’s is a Catholic College for boys

founded by the Society of Mary in 1911

and it is also the only Catholic boarding

school for boys in the South Island.

Catholic, Marist and Bedean principles

and values form the basis of a holistic

education at the College. We aim not

to make the College great but to ensure

every boy has the opportunity to be great,

and we endeavour to develop young men

of Catholic hearts and minds through the

experiences the boys have in their time

here at the College.

St Bede’s is a College for all…a place

where gospel values are practised to

help form principled men; a learning

environment where everyone achieves;

a place that teachers want to come

to because of the strength of the

community; a place also, where boys can

embrace spiritual, sporting, cultural and

community activities, which all combined

shape boys into men. That’s the priority

and that is in our DNA.

We welcome parents and boys to the

College’s Open Day on Wednesday 8 May

between 9.00am – noon, where you will

have the opportunity to tour the College

and meet staff and students.

Parents are also invited to attend the

Information Evening, commencing at

7.00pm, where Senior Management and

students will provide further information

about the College.

High School

- Preparing

students for

their future

“Our aim is simple... to

provide the best education

possible for every student”

Giving students the

opportunity to study from

an innovative and broad

curriculum is critical to

providing each student a

pathway that meets their

individual needs. We allow

for a greater range and

flexibility in subject choice

including the utilization

of the secondary/tertiary

interface. This reinforces the

philosophy underpinning

personalised learning and

is strongly supported by

understanding our students’

interests, passions, talents,

and ultimately their career


We understand that for effective

learning to take place, it has to be

implemented in such a way that students

will be highly engaged. The school

does this in a ‘forward thinking’ way by

creating learning environments that allow

our students to see value in what they do

and achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is what

we represent and we demonstrate this by

having young adults leave our school as

confident learners who have gained the

appropriate qualifications and social skills

to become valued contributing members

of society.

All that we do here is reinforced by

positive relationships, an ethos of caring,


cultural responsiveness, inclusion, and

high expectations – what we call “Our

Full service Model”. The school highly

values the connectedness of curricular

and co-curricular learning. We have a

philosophical understanding that the

holistic development of the student is

critical to their individual success.

The school has worked hard to

consolidate recent initiatives to ensure

sustained and continuous improvement.

You are invited to view our website,

school charter, ERO report, and/or

contact the school for more information.

We look forward to welcoming all

prospective students and their families/

whanau to visit our school.

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and

as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

Scientists at Rush University Medical

Center found those most deficient

in vitamin B12 to have the smallest

brain mass and the lowest scores on

tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration and brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains and score

higher on cognitive tests than those with

lower levels. Yet another recent landmark

study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain

shrinkage and declining cognitive function.

B12 is essential for energy production, cell

health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles,

nerve health and repair, and prevention

of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular

risk factor that is known to cause damage

and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease

risk of vision

loss in a study

of participants

aged 40+ who

supplemented with

B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in


Brain fog, forgetful, feeling old, low energy, mood swings,

difficulty sleeping, pins & needles, numbness in legs

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking brain due to a lack of vitamin B12. Supplementation of

methylcobalamin B12 has been shown to reduce the rate of brain shrinkage & support memory &

brain function. B12 is also known to protect against homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk

factor that can also damage the hearing, eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential for energy,

cell health & nerve function.

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and

thru bypassing the digestive tract have

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in

the body.

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.

are welcome to come and have a

look at the refurbished facilities.

Risingholme Community Centre

Looking after each other

and ourselves

This Autumn the WEA is offering a

range of courses with the emphasis on

self and social care. We recognise that

having opportunities to listen deeply to

one another, and to come together around

a shared activity or experience are vital

parts of building a safe and connected

community. It is also true that to look after

others we must first look after ourselves. It

can be as simple as building time into our

busy lives for things that feed us: perhaps an

artistic or musical pursuit, learning a new

language, or practicing meditation. With

a range of over 40 courses from Middle

Eastern Dance to Understanding the Treaty

in 2019, Foraging to Rethinking Mental

Health and a welcoming and enthusiastic

community of learners, there is lots to gain

from a course at the WEA and we would

love to see you there.

Tyres, rims and even

great coffee

Word of mouth is the best

recommendation for any business, and there

is a raft of customers happy to recommend

JCM Direct Tyres in Middleton. The

independent, family-owned and operated

business supplies tyres, mags and rims and

it is clear from their feedback that they

provide ‘outstanding customer service,’

‘really know what they are doing,’ and even

provide ‘tasty coffee.’

Reviews like these are hard-won, with

the emphasis being on making sure they

go the extra mile to really meet the needs

of the client. As an independent dealer,

they are not tied to a specific brand.

Instead, they will look at your vehicle,

your budget and your driving style to

provide you with what you need instead

of what the franchise wants you to have.

This can be brand new tyres such as Pirelli,

Continental, GT Radial and Nankang, or

high end, almost-new second hand tyres

in mint condition, often the same brand

names as the new options. The JCM team

wants to know their customers are leaving

them with their vehicles, from caravans to

utes, that are safe on the roads.

They will give you their honest opinion

and expertise about what you need too.

It could be more cost effective in the long

run to spend a little more a quality tyre and

reduce the risk of punctures on the Garden

City’s rebuild roads, and if you do have a

puncture, they can repair it quickly and


It is not only tyres – they supply rims

from the 1930s to the present day. If you

are lucky enough to own a classic vehicle,

you will know how difficult it can be to

find authentic parts, and the JCM team will

help you source what you need.

They also provide alloy wheels, spare

wheels plus wheel and tyre combo packages

to make their excellent products even more

affordable. They are even able to help you

with finance options.

Open six days a week, you can find

them at 8c Birmingham Drive on the

corner with Hands Road. Check them

out on Facebook.com/JCMDirect, or

visit JCMDirect.co.nz to see what their

family can do to help your family.

of air quality

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

The quality of the air we breathe

affects our health and ability to

perform. We breathe in and out

approximately 20,000 litres of

air every day. It is therefore very

important to ensure good air

quality indoors through adequate

ventilation. Ventilation is the

process of air exchange to provide

the necessary air quality that meets

the needs of the occupants for clean,

fresh air. Low oxygen with high

carbon dioxide causes stuffiness

in the room and occupants can

feel drowsy. Invisible harmful

substances like a high content of

dust and tobacco smoke are harmful

and can cause various diseases. Even

bad smells can cause discomfort

or irritate the nervous system. In

summer, it’s easy to open windows

for cross ventilation, however as

winter approaches, we start to shut

up out houses to trap in the heat and

as a result, air quality can decline.

Ventilation includes both the

exchange of air to the outside as

well as circulation of air within

the building. It is one of the

most important factors for maintaining

acceptable indoor air quality in buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In

case of poor or insufficient air intake from

outside, the oxygen content decreases,

humidity and dustiness levels increase. If

exhaust ventilation is not provided or it is

not effective, polluted air, smells, humidity

and harmful substances are not removed.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required air exchange for

your building requirement.

Smooth-Air offers a wide range

of ventilation equipment, from

air vents to ducting for fans,

for both the commercial and

domestic markets. They have

an extensive range of fans and

ventilation components instore

but they can also provide

innovative solutions tailored to

differing requirements.

You can contact Smooth-Air on

0800 SMOOTH (0800 766684).

Are you struggling with the heat of

Summer or wanting to get organised for

Winter? With the ever changing weather

patterns, heat pumps have the flexibility

of being able to heat and cool which is an

advantage no other appliance can offer. This

represents great value for your investment

as you can use it all year round. The team

at Enviro Master Ltd can help keep you

cool this Summer either at home or work.

Enviro Master supplies, installs and services

all the leading brands including Panasonic,

Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means

our team can show you which system and

brand will best suit your needs.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

now is a great time to beat the 1st of

July deadline. Inadequate heating and

ventilation can lead to mould growth and

dampness in your property, leading to

costlier maintenance and an unhealthy

living environment. Providing a fixed

heater with a higher heat output and lower

running costs, like a heat pump, will enable

your tenants to heat the area effectively.

It will also discourage them from using

unflued gas heaters which can make a

house damp and mouldy.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for

any repair or damage caused to the system

due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s

five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration

so customers have an understanding on

how it will best meet their needs.

For a free in home consultation, call

Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our

showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd,

Waltham, Christchurch.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer


In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

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”


“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he


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


“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.
