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.

Quarry information delay

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

INFORMATION requested

from Fulton Hogan over its

application to open a quarry in

Templeton has been delayed.

Fulton Hogan has confirmed

the additional information

requested by Environment

Canterbury and the Selwyn

District Council on its proposed

Roydon Quarry will be provided

by August 16.

The

information is

required in order

for the councils

to complete a

report.

The report,

discuss the

submissions on

the quarry and recommend

whether the resource consent

should be granted or not, will be

made available by September 2.

The two councils had

requested information on the

would be extracted annually

from the quarry, birdstrike

mitigations, an update on draft

conditions to reflect proposed

mitigation and noise mitigation.

The information was due back

Fulton Hogan has more time.

However, Templeton

Residents’ Association

treasurer Jolene Eagar said

it is a “repetitive game being

played where Fulton Hogan is

continuing to have its deadlines

extended.”

“There is always somebody

that has got less time to look at

information. In this case, it will

be the planners for the section

they will have enough time to

complete a proper report,” she

said.

But an ECan spokeswoman

said unless directed by the

hearings panel commissioners,

all dates and deadlines remain

in place.

Already ECan and the district

council have granted Fulton

Hogan’s request to extend the

deadline for the hearing process

over the application.

The hearing process does

not have to be completed until

January 23. The hearing will

commence on November 18.

Veterinary practice

Dr Steve works his magic again…

“CoCo” is a three year old speyed bunny

- a very loved and adored pet who

recently underwent Bilateral Cataract

Surgery. This surgery was a first for

Steve who did his research prior to the

operation. He has operated many times

on dogs, cats and even a hawk but not

a rabbit.

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

Open 7 days

head end of the patient is impossible.

Expertise and experience with rabbit

anaesthetics is essential when your

surgery may last one to two hours. Often

they require you to ventilate for them,

they must be kept warm, hydrated and

constant recordings of blood pressure

need to be recorded.

Straight away Coco was placed on

intravenous fluids, had blood taken

(no kidney or liver compromise was

seen) and was allowed to snack

on veggies and hay before her GA.

Prior to her anaesthetic she was

supplemented with oxygen to

increase oxygen concentration in

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.

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

Ann

Brokenshire

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.

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.

To their surprise, they received

a very encouraging reply, saying

McCahon would tell his dealer to

give them a good deal.

ART: CGHS principal Christine O’Neill and deputy

head girl Helen O’Connor with the Colin 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.

“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

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.

Bus lanes get green light

PEAK HOUR bus lanes will be

installed along Lincoln Rd and

Moorhouse Ave in a bid to make

journey times shorter and more

reliable for public transport

users.

The city council agreed on

Thursday to introduce bus

priority measures on the two

busy roads.

Buses are scheduled to travel

along Lincoln Rd every 15min.

In May, the Halswell Residents’

Association threw its support

behind the plan as part of its

submission to the draft Annual

Plan 2019-2020 to help reduce

the problem.

Secretary David Hawke said

it was pleased the decision had

gone through.

“One of the things we were

really keen council included was

there is absolutely no provision

for turning it into having regular

cars use that bus lane,” he said.

“We want it as waterproof as

possible it is a public transport

only project.”

City council approved special

vehicle lanes for the project,

which can only be used for public

transport.

The association has previously

raised concerns that peak time

traffic has caused buses on

Halswell and Lincoln Rds to run

behind schedule.

City council head of transport

DELAY: The Halswell Residents’

Association said the Orange Line is

often running behind schedule at

peak traffic times.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Richard Osborne said by

introducing peak hour bus

lanes, it expects to improve the

reliability of bus journey times

and reduce average bus trip times

by about 6,5min in the evening

peak and 4.5miin in the morning

peak.

“That should make going by

bus a more attractive option

for people. The south-west of

Christchurch is growing fast,

with 35,000 people expected to

move into that area over the

next 30 years,” Mr Osborne

said.

“That’s going to result in

more cars on the road and

congestion problems unless

transport faster and more

Under the $4 million

plan approved by the city

council on Thursday, bus

lanes will be installed on

both sides of Lincoln Rd,

between Moorhouse Ave and

Whiteleigh Ave.

The bus lanes will operate

weekdays between 7am and

9am, for the city-bound

journey, and between 4pm

and 6pm for the Halswellbound

journey.

A bus lane will also be

installed on the south-side

of Moorhouse Ave, between

Selwyn St and Lincoln Rd.

This bus lane will only

operate between 4pm and 6pm.

The speed limit on Lincoln Rd,

between Moorhouse Ave and

Whiteleigh St will be reduced to

30km/h and a new traffic lightcontrolled

pedestrian crossing

installed by Addington Village.

It is anticipated that work on

the bus priority measures will

begin in early 2020.

The work is expected to take

about six months to complete.

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.

The quirky name for the

band was formed when Abel

was looking up extinct animals

and came across the Caribbean

monk seal before putting the

word “sneaky” in front of it.

Native to the Caribbean,

over hunting of the seals for oil

and over-fishing of their food

sources are the established reasons

for their extinction.

By the time the caribbean

monk seal was placed on the

endangered species list in 1967,

they were likely to already be

extinct.

At stake are winner’s prize

packages which include $22,000

in Rockshop vouchers, a $16,000

NZ On Air recording, video and

promo package, and a photo

shoot and branding package.

Rabbit cull

results still

weeks away

• By Sophie Cornish

HOW EFFECTIVE a cull of

rabbits in the red zone has been

will be known in several weeks.

Land Information New Zealand,

which manages the land, said all of

the carrots contaminated with the

calicivirus K5 have been consumed

since the drop late last month.

LINZ manager land and property

Matt Bradley said biosecurity

experts will survey the rabbit

numbers in late September or early

October to determine if further

control is required. The population

will be compared to a survey

carried out last year. The number

of rabbits found dead so far has

been relatively low, because they

often return to their burrows, Mr

Bradley said.

A contractor is regularly

inspecting the area to remove

any dead rabbits. “We have also

instructed our maintenance

contractors to report if they find

dead rabbits so we can have them

removed,” Mr Bradley said.

No further releases of the virus

have been scheduled yet. As part of

the management of the red zone,

LINZ is legally required under the

Canterbury Regional Pest Control

Strategy to reduce rabbit and pest

numbers when they get too high.

Growing kids gardening knowledge

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

IN A digital age, it is becoming

less common for children to

learn the art of growing their

own food.

But not on Colin Renouf’s

watch.

The long-serving Riccarton

Primary School caretaker has

been inspiring children to

learn where their food comes

from, grow vegetables and gain

cooking skills for the past four

years.

He has now been recognised

for his efforts at the Keep

Christchurch Beautiful awards.

In the nine years since Mr

Renouf began taking care of the

school’s vegetable gardens, an

orchard, compost systems and

hens have been set up.

Mr Renouf said learning

how to grow, harvest, prepare

and share seasonal food is

important.

That is why he has been

heavily involved in the school’s

Garden to Table programme.

The nationwide curriculumintegrated

programme helps

thousands of primary schoolaged

children across the country

discover a love for fresh food.

Mr Renouf said it was a “lovely

surprise” to be nominated and

to receive the award. He said

he enjoys presenting the school

as a positive, tidy environment,

along with the day-to-day

interactions he has with staff

and pupils.

One of the most important

tips he passes on to children is

the importance of keeping soil

healthy with good compost.

“Healthy soil produces healthy

plants, you have got to look after

your soil,” Mr Renouf said.

Mr Renouf works at the school

about 30 hours a week. When

he is not tending the grounds,

the qualified spiritual director is

a minister supervisor, advising

pastors.

Alongside Mr Renouf, Geoff

Stenhouse, who volunteers at

the school three days a week,

was also presented with a Keep

Christchurch Beautiful Award.

The awards were held at

Million Metres planting

day at Jellie Park

• By Claire Booker

SCORES OF volunteers braved

the cold last weekend to lend a

hand to a community project at

Jellie Park.

Volunteers spent their

morning planting native plants

along Wairarapa stream behind

the Jellie park pools complex.

They were responding to the

call by ‘Million Metres’ for a

planting day, and the plants

came from the city council’s

nurseries.

Project lead at Million Metres,

Georgina Hart is an ex-Cobham

Intermediate and Burnside High

School student and was at the

planting day to help out, and

explain the importance of the

stream restoration project.

Million Metres is a dedicated

programme for connecting local

waterway restoration projects

with large-scale funding and

resources.

Its goal is to raise funds to

plant one million metres of

waterways with native plants

and trees.

Wairarapa stream has

undergone significant

degradation over many years,

so the million metres project

aims to progressively restore the

stream to its former condition.

This will mean water quality

will be improved, and the

birdlife which is dependent on

the stream will reap the benefits

of this work.

It is hoped that this planting

day is the beginning of a new

of life for the stream so it can

support a rich diversity of life,

have an abundant food source,

and be a place of rest and

recreation for the community.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

members attended the planting

day, and board member

Shirish Paranjape said it was

‘wonderful’ to see people of all

ages go along to give a helping

hand.

“The most pleasing sight was to

see very young children helping

with full enthusiasm and

energy,” he said.

Local schools including

Cobham Intermediate, Burnside

Primary School, St Patrick’s

School and CCEL English

Language school attended

the project alongside other

community organisations.

Libraries celebrate 160

years with exhibition

of rare memorabilia

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

Carolyn Robertson

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.”

Food and coffee with a difference

• By Claire Booker

AT CAN Do cafe, it isn’t just

the coffee and treats that fill the

customers with warmth.

It’s the staff behind the counter

who serve every customer with

a smile because they love what

they do. Can Do cafe employees

are people who suffer from brain

injuries and other physical disabilities.

Hayden Dixon (above),

22, works Tuesdays and Wednesdays

and loves the coffee run to

the nearby medical centre.

Said Mr Dixon: “I like doing

the coffee run because it gets me

outdoors.”

The cafe provides its staff

with ordinary life opportunities

through meaningful paid

employment, which allows them

to set and achieve personal goals.

The cafe opened at Art

Metro in Papanui in March,

and operations manager Vicky

Harris said it is getting busier

every day, but is still quiet.

“We’re positive. We get really

good feedback on the food and

what we do,” she said.

The cafe opened after the huge

success of Can Do Catering,

which was started in 2015 by

staff at the Laura Fergusson

Trust Canterbury.

The trust was set up to cater for

young people with brain injuries

and it will celebrate its 40th

anniversary this year.

The staff have formal contracts

and are interviewed for their

jobs at the cafe, and they learn

about food hygiene, and health

and safety during the induction

process.

The opportunities the

cafe and catering businesses

provide for the staff gives them

independence and a sense of

purpose.

“We’ve got one woman and we

call her our bliss ball queen – she

now goes into the kitchen and

makes it [bliss balls]. She’s got

the recipe and she makes it all,”

Ms Harris said.

She said her job is incredibly

rewarding, and she is passionate

about what she does.

“Seeing how being involved in

a team with people that haven’t

worked before, and seeing the

true pleasure and joy they get out

of doing ordinary life tasks . . .

that’s the most rewarding thing

for me,” she said.

The cafe is open Monday, Tuesday,

Thursday, and Friday from

8.30am-3 pm, and Wednesday

from 8.30am-noon.

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 samosa

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.

moving house – you’re joining a vibrant and warm community where

At Summerset we put you at the heart of everything

we do, so you can enjoy the freedom of living the life

you choose.

The perfect home is waiting for you. From villas and townhouses, to

apartments – you’ll find a place to make your own. Our homes are built

for warmth, and there are no worries about maintenance or upkeep as

we do it all for you. Pets are also welcome, and you can even go away

on holiday knowing your home will be safe and secure. We’ll also make

sure you’re aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that there won’t

be any unexpected surprises.

When it comes to activities and events, there’s always something

happening to keep our Summerset community involved and

entertained, and you can choose to do as much or as little as you like.

If you need some extra care or support, our continuum of care means

we’ll be there for you as your needs change, giving you the peace of

mind to continue living life to its fullest.

Over 5,000 residents are already enjoying the Summerset life across

25 villages around New Zealand. If you’re interested in Summerset for

yourself or a family member, come and visit Summerset at Wigram to

find out more about our village life.
