Anger

over

school

zone

changes

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

INTERMEDIATE school-aged

children living in Halswell have

been excluded from Hillmorton

High School’s catchment zone.

The school will have a new zone

from January 1 as part of major

changes made in a collaborative

effort by principals and the

Ministry of Education to have

all of the city’s state secondary

schools zoned by 2020.

But families living in Halswell,

who were planning to send

their children to Hillmorton

High’s middle school for year

7 and 8 pupils, have been left

disappointed.

The MoE rejected the school’s

proposal to have one zone for

years 7 to 13 to “reduce the risk of

overcrowding.”

MoE sector enablement and

support secretary Katrina Casey

said primary schools in Halswell

are “well-placed” to accommodate

Halswell’s population of year 7

and 8 pupils.

A two-zone enrolment scheme

has now been adopted – one for

year 9-13 and one for year 7-8.

Opportunity missed over toilets

PEOPLE WITH mobility

Taiora: QE II Recreation and

“The left over money went into

how we can get it back,” said Ms

Stewart.

Trist’s husband Tony, who

struggles with his mobility, faces

trying to cross the 55m to get

from the hydrotherapy pool to

the toilets.

The community board asked

for toilet and shower facilities to

be built closer the pool as soon

as possible in its submission to

the city council’s Annual Plan.

But Ms Stewart said she had

been told this would happen in

“the next two years.”

Mrs Trist, who raised the

original concerns about the

hydrotherapy pool with the

community board, said she was

“disgusted” the leftover funds

had not been used to build more

accessible toilet facilities.

“That is a smack in the face

for the people with health issues

and disabilities that they had

money there to do that and

didn’t do it, she said.

“These people are being

discriminated against.”

Mrs Trist previously told

Pegasus Post her husband

Tony, who is paralysed down

his left side, was almost left

embarrassed trying to get to the

toilet facilities in the past.

She said two years was too

long for people like Tony to

wait for more accessible toilet

facilities to be built. “That’s

two or three years too late. You

know, like, it’s going to happen,

but meanwhile, that should have

been on the original plan.”

Said Ms Stewart: “To

me, it’s a health and safety

issue, it’s not something that

should wait two or three years.

We should provide for the

disabled community as soon as

we can.”

Work on clock tower

starts ticking along

• By Matt Slaughter

THE NEW Brighton

clock tower repairs have

started.

The work is expected to

take about six months.

It was supposed to start

in September but was

delayed after a detailed

investigation revealed

more damage and overdue

maintenance-related issues

than expected.

City council manager

of capital delivery

community Darren Moses

said the contractors were

on site last week removing

some of the old concrete

from the dome area at the

top of the clock.

JOB’S ON: Vincent Fuentes was hard at work on

the New Brighton clock tower repairs last week.

Said Mr Moses:

“Reinforcing will be

repaired and replaced.

The dome will be propped

and measures put in place

to protect the historic

newspapers lining the

under-side of the dome.”

Coco was having real difficulty finding

her food bowls and manoeuvring

around outside. She had always

loved charging around outside with

the other rabbits. Her cataracts had

developed fast in approximately

two months, the right eye more

mature than the left eye. Cataracts in

rabbits can be congenital, traumatic,

metabolic as in diabetes, inflammatory

secondary to uveitis or infectious, as in

the case of E Cuniculi. Coco was being

treated for E Cuniculi, which is a parasite

ingested and eliminated in the urine.

This parasite causes inflammation in the

lens and a capsular cataract can develop,

leading to uveitis and sometimes

glaucoma. It is painful and the rabbits

will often scratch at the eye.

Coco was referred to Steve and her

primary vet and nurse came over to

monitor Coco’s anaesthetic. Rabbits

on the whole are difficult patients to

monitor under anaesthetic due to

their size and eye surgeries are difficult

anyway because monitoring the

the blood. Once anaesthetised she was

hooked up to a blood pressure monitor

and pulsoximeter (measuring her oxygen

saturation in the blood) and positioned

for cataract surgery.

The surgery went really well with Steve

removing the crystalline lenses in both

eyes. A Cataract is a lens opacity and is

due to the loss of architecture of the lens

or capsule fibres. To us the lens appears

cloudy (the lens is in the middle of the

eye). The cataract is then sucked out with

a phacoemulsification machine. This

machine vibrates, cuts and vacuums the

cataract out. If all goes well, the visual

axis is clear and vision is restored.

So far so good. Steve has frequently

checked her eyes and Coco can

visually see well out both her eyes, her

intraocular pressures are good, she is

comfortable and happier now her ocular

world has opened up again.

I think its brilliant Coco’s owner gave her

a chance at restored sight. The other

option would have been removing the

eyes, as the uveitis and glaucoma could

have been too painful for her to live with.

For any questions on cataract

surgeries please contact Steve

directly at McMaster & Heap Vet

Practice. He has just invested in a

new phacoemulsification machine so

hopefully will get to test drive it soon.

National finals

for rock band

•From page 1

The band, known for

its unique stage presence

and genre fusion, is made

up of lead guitarist Jono

Manning, Yannik Turner

(vocals), David Archer

(bass) and Abel Carson

(drums).

Jono and Yannik said

they are excited to be

part of the finals and to

perform with other up and

coming musicians.

Abel, David and Yannik

formed the band last year

before finding the “missing

ingredient” when they

heard Jono playing Foxy

Lady.

From there the “rest is

history”, Yannik and Jono

said.

Their first performance

together as a band was

T.N.T by AC/DC at a rock

night at the school last

year.

“The audience loved it

and we felt that we clicked

on stage and we knew it

was the start of something

good,” Yannik and Jono

said.

From there, the band

played at Heritage Hanmer

Springs in December and

haven’t stopped playing

and practicing since.

They are now writing

their own songs and adding

other instruments,

including different forms

of percussion and harmonica.

Name for planned Linwood pool

TE NGĀI Tūāhuriri has gifted

a special name to Linwood’s

planned $22 million pool

complex.

The community facility will

be known as Te Pou Toetoe:

Linwood Pool, and is set to open

in late 2021.

City council head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox said

the name reflects both the local

environment and the passing of

knowledge.

“The term pou is a reference to

both the building itself, and to

the way we pass knowledge from

person to person and generation

to generation,” Mr Cox said.

“The toetoe comes from the

clusters of toetoe and vegetation

originally found in the area on

the sand dunes near Ihutai (the

estuary).”

The concept designs for the

pool were approved by the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board in May

following extensive community

engagement.

The planned facility will be

adjacent to Linwood Park and

include a multi-use 25m lane

pool, which will feature a deepwater

area, a family spa pool,

learn to swim pool and a pool for

toddlers, complete with a water

deck.

Community meeting rooms

and a kitchen are also part of the

design.

“Food has traditionally been a

great reason for people to connect

socially, and the bookable kitchen

will be a major point of difference

that Te Pou Toetoe has for the

community. When integrated

with our outdoor gathering area

and picnic tables, the kitchen will

let the community come together

to prepare and eat food in a way

you don’t always get in a public

space.”

The outdoor community

space will connect the facility

to Linwood Park and include a

picnic tables, tennis and multiuse

courts and cycle stands.

GIFTED: Te Pou Toetoe Linwood Pool has been chosen as the name for Linwood’s new

$22 million pool complex, which is set to open in late 2021.

Zone changes impact Hillmorton High

•From page 1

Year 7 to 8 pupils living in

Oaklands, Halswell and Knights

Stream will instead have to enrol

at Hillmorton High in year 9.

Up to 40 out-of-zone spaces

may be available for year 7 and 8

pupils.

Parent Karen White, who was

planning to send her daughter

to Hillmorton High next year,

said she is not happy with the

decision.

“I think that parents should

have the right to choose

where their children go to

school because every child is

an individual and will learn

differently,” she said.

Mrs White started up a

petition last week calling for

one-zone enrolment zone for

year 7-13 and for more robust

consultation with families and

the community before the new

zone is implemented.

She has also called on other

parents affected by the decision

to email MoE Canterbury

education director Coralanne

Child to provide as much

feedback as possible.

Her views are backed

by another parent, Sandra

Hargrove, who was in the process

of applying for an out-of-zone

space for her son.

She said the general feeling

in the community is one of

disappointment, right through to

anger, and her son was looking

forward to attending Hillmorton

High.

Principal Ann Brokenshire

said the school is “somewhat

disappointed” because it is

running a middle school for year

7 to 10 pupils, but it understood

the MoE’s perspective.

“We don’t necessarily agree but

we understand it and we have

accepted it,” she said.

Up until now the school, which

became years 7 to 13 in 2014

following the closure of Manning

Intermediate, has not had a zone.

Ms Brokenshire said secondary

school principals have done

a huge amount of work after

the earthquakes to ensure

all students have access to a

reasonably close secondary state

school.

Mairehau, Papanui, Riccarton

and Burnside high schools, as

well as Linwood College and

Haeata Community Campus,

will also have changed or new

enrolment zones by January 1,

2020. Burnside High’s amended

zone now covers the area around

the airport.

Parent Nicki Payton said she

is lucky to have got her son into

year 7 at Hillmorton High last

year.

She said her son has only been

at the school for two months, but

there has been an “astounding

progression” in his well-being,

confidence and learning.

Hillmorton High’s roll is

currently at 90 per cent capacity,

with nearly 900 students, but the

redevelopment of the school is

master-planned to cater for 2000

students.

As part of its redevelopment,

construction of a 22-teaching

space two-storey building is

expected to begin early next

month.

The project is estimated to take

12 months to complete and cost

$10 million to build.

Richard Emerson: The Hopfather

by Michael donaldson

The life and times of the man who built the modern beer scene in

New Zealand, an iconic brewer and businessman – Richard Emerson

of Emerson’s Brewery. Richard Emerson is one of our pre-eminent

brewers, a trailblazer who is often lauded as the godfather of craft beer

in New Zealand.

Born profoundly deaf in 1960s Dunedin, Emerson triumphed against

all odds to launch Emerson’s Brewery in 1992. He went on to create

a string of unique, award-winning beers, spark a cult-following,

attract global recognition, and become a millionaire – all from doing

something he loved. For Richard, it came after 20 years of unrelenting

commitment to the cause of good beer. They were two decades of

hard graft, physically and emotionally, of little or no pay, and of long

hours, during which he watched his father, mentor and friend die just

as the business began to stand on its own two feet. This is the story

of an adventurous boy who wouldn’t let anything get in the way of

what he wanted to do; a boy who fought for his place in the world and

refused to let anyone tell him ‘no’.

Autobiography

Johnathan Thurston is widely regarded as rugby league’s

journey from a Brisbane kid who was written off as too skinny,

too slow and too wild to play professionally, to his debut with

New Zealand rugby history like the Meads, Whettons, Gears,

Bachops and Brownlies.

Jamie Wall writes insightfully, revealing fascinating stories and

providing analysis of some of the massive changes that have

occurred in New Zealand rugby over the years, while sharing

great yarns about the high-profile tests that live on in every

R.A. Lawson - Victorian Architect &

by Norman Ledgerwood

Following the discovery of gold in Otago, Dunedin quickly grew

Lawson became more than a leading architect of the day, he

was deeply involved in the management and affairs of his

beloved Presbyterian Church. Over a short period Lawson

played a major role in the growth of Dunedin — taking it

from a small township to a city of remarkable and enduring

Victorian architecture.

Lawson’s most significant works — First Presbyterian Church

of Otago, Knox Presbyterian Church, Larnach Castle, Otago

Boys’ High School, Dunedin Municipal Building — take

their place amongst the country’s most important historical

buildings and grace Dunedin to this day.

Little interest in community building

• By Jess Gibson

AN EMPTY building available

for lease at the old Redcliffs

School site has struggled to

gain interest from community

groups.

Christine Toner sent out more

than 200 emails

to help the city

council find a

group which

wants to lease the

building.

However,

after very few

expressions of

interest, the

association

Toner

wants to form either a new

sub-committee or independent

group to lease and manage it.

The modern building, which

is owned by the city council,

has four rooms and opens out

on to a courtyard overlooking

Redcliffs Park and playing fields.

“It’s such a good building and

I’m sure eventually people will

realise it’s too good to pass up,”

said Ms Toner.

She said the association does

not have an interest in leasing or

managing the building itself.

“It’s still important that it’s

managed locally. We don’t want

Andrew Rutledge said staff are

currently conducting an open

find occupants for the building.

The occupants would be

expected to have a building

manager who would oversee

bookings, insurance, security

and cleaning, among other

things.

A meeting will be held on

August 16 at the building

for residents, groups and

Once that has been completed

a further request for proposals

applications for funding from its

Loburn School won the year 7 and

8 quiz with 89 points. William

Hassall, 12, Charley Ward, 13,

and Harry Witt, 12, said they

were happy to win the quiz, but

“it wasn’t planned.”

The teams had to find answers

to questions from an Otago Daily

Times newspaper, which caught

them off guard.

Two Hillview Christian School

teams took second and third with

88 and 87 points. Extra! editor

Tricia Rowe was pleased the event

went smoothly.

“The year 7 and 8 group were

really lively, which made the quiz

go fast,” she said. “The lead up to

the event has been stressful, with

balancing writing papers and

writing the quizzes, but I’ve got a

really good team.”

Libraries

celebrate

160 years

WHEN Christchurch residents

borrowed their first books from

a library, it was from a single

room on High St in 1859.

Now, the 160th birthday of

Christchurch City Libraries

is being celebrated with

the exhibition Illuminate:

Unearthing Treasures from

our Collection, which opened

on Saturday in the Southbase

Gallery at Tūranga. It will run

until October 27.

The exhibition features rare

books, including An Account

of a Voyage Around the World,

by James Cook, published in

1773; original New Zealand

artworks, historic maps, vintage

posters from the 1970s and

1980s, including some printed

by record label Flying Nun and

a typescript of catalogue of the

Universe by Margaret Mahy.

Library branches around

the city will also mark the

anniversary with displays

of historic photographs and

memorabilia.

City council head of libraries

Carolyn Robertson said the

importance of libraries has

grown hugely over the past 160

years.

“It’s amazing to think that

libraries have been serving local

people for so long. In those early

days books were all people could

borrow, but today’s libraries are

a source of so much information

across many different platforms,

as well as being home to a huge

range of programmes and

events.”

“Regardless of changes in

technology, libraries have

always been a place to inspire

knowledge, foster creativity,

challenge our curiosity and meet

other people,” she said.

“This anniversary is a great

opportunity to celebrate that

role. Illuminate is all about

showing how libraries can

open our eyes, and bring new

information to light.”

McCahon painting reunites old girls

• By Sophie Cornish and Claire

Booker

IT WAS 1969 and six young

women who had just finished at

Christchurch Girls’ High wanted

to have a good time at a ball.

They founded the Young Old

Girls’ Association and hosted

their own debutante ball. But

they didn’t expect to make a

profit, let alone enough to buy a

Colin McCahon painting, which

has now become a valuable

collector’s item.

The painting was presented to

the school in 1970 by association

member Jan Hardie at an

assembly.

“When they went along to

the assembly the girls actually

laughed, because they probably

didn’t regard it as a proper

painting in those days . . . we

wanted to present something

that was a bit of a challenge,” said

Annette Hamblett, who was also

a member of the association.

Throughout the 1950s and

early 60s, many school-leavers

went to their formal old girls’

association debutante ball, but

the Young Old Girls’ Association

had no interest in making a

‘debut’.

And they didn’t want to go to a

ball with no alcohol, and ‘stuffy’

old girls, so they took matters

into their own hands.

With their own title, the group

organised a venue, popular

dance band The Chapta, food,

drink and then advertised the

vent everywhere.

“When I think about it now,

we were quite bold, we booked

one of the biggest venues, the

horticultural hall, which used to

be on the corner of Oxford Tce

and Gloucester St,” Ms Hamblett

said.

Against all odds, they made a

profit and one of the association

members, Susan Battye,

suggested they hold another

event and use the other half of

the profits to gift a painting to

the school.

Ms Battye wrote to one of

New Zealand’s most well-known

painters, Colin McCahon.

McCahon painting. (Below) – Young Old Girls’ Association members Susan Battye, Robyn Scott,

Jan Hardie, Annette Hamblett, Judi McCallum and Cheryl Roblilliard with the McCahon painting

they donated to CGHS 50 years ago.

To their surprise, they received

a very encouraging reply, saying

McCahon would tell his dealer to

give them a good deal.

“And he did. By October 1970,

we had acquired our McCahon:

North Otago landscape, number

19, painted with synthetic

polymer on hardboard,” Ms

Hamblett said.

The group met at their old

school recently to celebrate their

success, and reminisce about

their younger days.

The group members said they

were pleased to see each other

again after 50 years, and enjoyed

seeing the painting in all its

glory.

“It will always be a point of

SOUTHERN VIEW

discussion. It’s not just a placid

thing on the wall. It’s going

to provoke discussion about

what is art, and how can it

represent the environment that

we live in in New Zealand,” Ms

Battye said.

The CGHS art department

now teaches students about

McCahon and his paintings.

the next month.

Lara Wall and Marisa van

Football Confederation (OFC)

under-19 championship with

the New Zealand under-20s at

the end of this month in the

Cook Islands.

Cashmere Technical defender

Jordan Spain is part of the New

Zealand under-23 squad that

will prepare for a two-game

series against Australia next

month.

Both he and Coastal Spirit’s

Sean Liddicoat played a big part

in New Zealand winning the

Pacific Games for the first time,

last month.

Van der Meer, a left back, was

part of the national under-17

team last year.

Wall, a striker, played for

Southern United before moving

to Christchurch in February.

New under-20s coach Gemma

Lewis is excited to begin another

FIFA World Cup qualifying

of those taking part will be

to secure a place in the New

Zealand squad for the OFC

men’s Olympic qualifying

tournament, which is set to be

staged in Fiji from September 21

to October 5.

The team will take on their

Australian counterparts in a

A place to call home

For Lois, Essie Summers

Retirement Village has proved

the best place to be.

Lois enjoys her sunny

hospital room the most and

loves the fact that she has the

choice to go out and about with

other residents on van outings

or spend a quiet afternoon in

her room.

Lois got married in 1965 and

helped her husband Tom on

their Marlborough property,

Kilkishen Farm. The couple

raised their three children

Steve, Kevin and Louise. They

also farmed sheep and cattle,

which made for a busy life, her

daughter Louise says.

Eventually the children were

sent to boarding schools in

Christchurch.

“They lived on that farm for

50 years, my mother was loved

in the community, she helped

out on the farm, kept chickens

and had a big garden,” says

Louise.

“My father died in 2008 and

she lived on the farm for ten

years after my father’s passing.

Eventually she became too frail

to live alone.”

So, mother and daughter

decided on a move to

Christchurch to be near family,

and they set about looking for

a place that suited.

“I needed a place to do things

and go on bus tours but still have

a quiet place to rest,” Lois says.

They visited a few places

before deciding on Essie

Summers. The clincher for

them was the atmosphere at

the village.

“The staff are really nice,

and the meals are fantastic,”

Lois says.

“I like not cooking my meals,”

she laughs.

She’s as active as she can be

in the village.

“The activities are good, and I

Lois, pictured with Clinical Manager Melanie, is happy to call Essie Summers home

love the knitting group. We meet

up once a week to have a chat.”

Her sunny room is decorated

with photos of the farm and

family, and little ornaments of

birds.

“My room gets most of the

afternoon sun, which I love.”

Essie Summers Retirement

Village offers a range of

retirement living and care

options. Residents can live

independently in a townhouse

or receive assistance in a

serviced apartment, and there

is also a care centre offering

resthome, hospital, and

specialist dementia care.

Residents can relax or meet

their friends in the village centre

where the amenities include

indoor bowls, a grand atrium,

library, hair salon, and terrace.

Clinical Manager Melanie

Asuncion says the team puts an

emphasis on getting to know

new residents to help them

settle in.

“We try to know as much

about our residents and their

families. Each morning I do

my rounds so that I can touch

base with every resident. It’s

not just about their health but

their likes and dislikes. Our

care plans reect that.”

“It’s personalised care. A

holistic approach to their

social life too.”

“The Ryman difference for me

is that we are family oriented.”

For Melanie it’s important

that the staff understand

how important kindness and

friendliness is.

“It’s the basis of our care. It

creates a friendly vibe which

makes our staff approachable

to everyone, and that’s essential

for our work.”

Activities coordinators also

tailor activities for the residents.

“For example, we have a

resident who loves to read, so

one of our activities with her

is to have a book review with

her every week,” says Melanie

smiling.

For Lois, Essie Summers has

indeed become her home.

“I do like the social life at

the village,” she says, “but my

favourite thing is that the staff

are kind. You can’t ask for more

than that.”

And for her daughter seeing

her mum’s health improve

means so much.

“She’s made a remarkable

recovery and it means the

world to me.”

Retirement

living and care

at its best!

Redcliffs couple make waves in Hawaii

• By Jess Gibson

A REDCLIFFS couple has

returned from their trip to

Hawaii with extra luggage.

Annie Crombie, 51, and

husband Terry Beentjes, 53,

each bagged two awards after

placing in the 2019 US Slalom

Windsurfing Nationals in Maui

from July 27 to 29.

Crombie won sport section

and finished third in the

women’s competition, while

Beentjes finished second in both

the semi-pro and men’s 40-59

racing events.

“We’re stoked,” Crombie said.

“We didn’t have any expectations

to be on the podium.”

Both took part in 24 races over

the three-day event and had only

trained for one week in the lead

up to the competition.

“We came out of winter and

haven’t windsurfed since February

so it was a hard seven days.

I got blisters all over my hands

and feet,” Crombie said.

She said they stayed fit before

heading over by mountain biking

and doing yoga.

Beentjes almost opted out of

competing after he broke his

thumb the day after the flights

were booked.

“He was only three weeks out

of his plaster when he competed.

Once we got up there the vibe

of the event got a hold of him,”

Crombie said.

The couple had more than

just awards to celebrate during

the prize-giving as it was on the

same day as their 31st wedding

anniversary.

Crombie and Beentjes have

both been windsurfing since the

early 1990s and have competed

in many competitions in New

Zealand and overseas.

SPORT

SUCCESS:

Terry

Beentjes,

53, and

wife Annie

Crombie, 51,

came away

from the 2019

US Slalom

Windsurfing

Nationals in

Maui with two

awards each. ​

Crombie said their two

teenage daughters, Kate and

Emma, have been all “around

the world to windy places.”

Club aims

to boost

squash

numbers

THE SUMNER Tennis and

Squash Club wants to prevent

squash from fading as a sport.

It will host the Canterbury

masters and under-23 squash

tournaments on August 17 and

18 as part of its efforts to promote

the game in the region.

Said club president Phil

Loughnan: “hopefully, this will

be the first of many, with the club

reintroducing a Sumner open

next year.”

“Squash nationally is a fading

game, but it’s a great game the

club is committed to growing,”

Mr Loughnan said.

He said it will be a great

opportunity to showcase the

club’s rejuvenated facilities,

which are “arguably the best in

Christchurch.”

The club on Heberden Ave

has spent more than $1 million

renovating the squash and tennis

courts and associated facilities

which were reopened late last

year.

“The courts have new floors and

lighting and have been heavily

insulated to give excellent playing

conditions,” he said.

Simple ways to cut back on the calories

Making a simple swap from

pastry to a tortilla wrap

instantly brings down the

calories. Filled with fresh

ingredients, these samosas

and simple chicken curry

recipes are a great way to

eat well and lose weight

Samosas

Makes 6

Prep time 10min

Cooking time 15min

Ingredients

2 medium potatoes, peeled and

diced into 1cm pieces

75g frozen peas

Low-calorie cooking spray

½ onion, diced

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 tsp grated root ginger

Generous pinch of chilli powder

½ tsp ground coriander

¼ tsp ground cumin

¼ tsp ground turmeric

½ tsp garam masala

30g spinach

Juice of ½ lemon

Sea salt

3 low-calorie tortilla wraps, cut

in half

1 egg, beaten

Fresh coriander, to serve

Directions

Cook the diced potatoes in a

pan of boiling salted water for

5min, then drain. Cook the peas

in boiling salted water and drain.

Heat the oven to 200 deg C

(fan 180 deg C) and line a baking

tray with some greaseproof

paper or baking paper.

Spray a pan with some lowcalorie

cooking spray and place

over a medium heat. Add the

onion, garlic and ginger and

cook for 3-4min until softened

but not browned, then add the

spices and cook for another

minute. Stir in the cooked potato

and mash it slightly with a fork

or the back of a spoon before

adding the uncooked spinach,

lemon juice and peas. Add a

pinch of salt and stir.

Brush the edges of the halved

wraps with the beaten egg. Fold

each half into a cone shape and

seal the edge, leaving the top

open to add the filling.

Divide the filling equally

between the wraps, being careful

not to overfill them (if you do,

you will not be able to seal them

properly).

Brush the open end of the

wraps with some more beaten

egg, leave for 30-40sec, until it

becomes tacky, then press the

edges together firmly. ]

You can use a fork to do this,

but be careful not to rip the

wrap. Arrange the samosas on

the tray.

Brush each samosa with plenty

of beaten egg, make sure the

edges are sealed, then place in

the oven for 10min, or until they

are golden brown.

Remove from the oven and

serve warm. You can also

allow to cool, wrap in baking

parchment and freeze for

another day.

Super simple chicken curry

Serves 4

Prep time 5min

Cooking time 30min

Ingredients

Low-calorie cooking spray

1 large onion, sliced

450g chicken breast (skin and

visible fat removed), diced

3 garlic cloves, crushed

400ml water

3 Tbsp curry powder

1 Tbsp ground turmeric

1 Tbsp tomato puree

Sea salt and freshly ground black

pepper

To serve (optional)

Samosas (see previous recipe)

Cooked rice

Ingredients

Spray a large frying pan with

low-calorie cooking spray and

place over a medium heat.

Add the onion and cook for

2min until softened slightly,

then add the diced chicken to

the pan and cook for 5min until

browned.

Add the garlic to the pan and

cook for 1min, then add all the

other ingredients. The water

should just about cover the

chicken – you may need a little

more or less depending on the

size of your pan.

Leave to simmer gently for

20min.

Turn the heat up and boil the

curry for another 5min, stirring

frequently to ensure it doesn’t

catch on the bottom of the pan,

this will reduce and thicken the

sauce slightly.

Serve the curry with your

choice of accompaniment.

Tip: This curry recipe works

well with lean diced lamb (all

visible fat removed) too.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Specialists advise a vehicle

check before winter sets in

Winter weather can present a range of tricky driving conditions

for motorists – from wet, slippery roads and heavy frosts to fog

and driving rain. That’s why it is important to make sure your

vehicle is in tip-top shape and ready to deal with these hazards

before winter really sets in.

The team at Roses Auto Electrical in Cranford Street recommends

checking that your lights and windscreen wipers are in working

order, and to ensure your vehicle will start on cold mornings they

offer free battery and alternator and starter tests, and free battery

fitting.

Their well-equipped workshop includes specialised diagnostic

equipment designed to find any faults with vehicles’ electronics, air

bags or ABS braking system, which the qualified and experienced

auto electrical specialists will repair quickly and efficiently.

Roses Auto Electrical provides full electrical services for all

makes and models of European, Japanese and light commercial

vehicles. Any time a warning light flashes up on the dashboard,

they advise calling into their workshop to have it checked out.

Roses Auto Electrical has been in business for more than 20 years,

and the workshop team are constantly updating their knowledge

with industry training, as well as having the latest state-of-the-art

equipment in the workshop.

The customer comes first for the friendly, professional team at

Roses Auto Electrical, and motorists having their vehicle serviced

there can have confidence in its performance and safety, especially

with the cold weather approaching when driving is often more
