It was all about the fun on the farm at The New Zealand Agricultural Show last week. Children had the chance to get up

close and personal with furry friends from the farmyard, like year 8 St Andrew’s College pupil Issy Bhatia. Other show

attractions included an array of livestock and equestrian exhibits, live music, Endurocross, a food and wine village and

more.

Record

number of

objections

to proposed

liquor store

• By Claire Booker

A RECORD-breaking number

of objections were submitted to

the city council over a proposed

liquor store on Memorial Ave.

In the last three years, the most

public objections the city council

had received on an alcohol licence

application was 121.

But 207 people opposed the liquor

store near the BP petrol station

on Memorial Ave, which is within

1km of four primary schools.

Key concerns for residents are

a lack of parking, an increase in

alcohol consumption and alcoholrelated

anti-social behaviour, and

frustration around Memorial Ave

being a memorial for fallen soldiers.

The proposed liquor store would

operate from 9am-10pm, seven

days a week.

Isobel Anderson lives in the

property which shares a driveway

with the proposed store, and she

said the large number of objections

was “absolutely wonderful.”

Said Ms Anderson: “I think

we’re passionate about our area

here. There’s obviously been a

problem with liquor in the area

because we’ve had a liquor ban

in place. So we’re pretty keen on

trying to stop it [liquor store].”

Rocks shatter more windows

• By Claire Booker

IT SEEMS the “covert

operations” police have been

using to catch rock-wielding

offenders have misfired.

At least five reports of rocks

being thrown through windows

in Bishopdale were reported last

week, on top of the seven previous

reports, and one victim was

a 94-year-old woman.

A police spokeswoman said

the damage reported last week

was mostly on

Harewood Rd

and Cotswald

Ave, but previously,

Highsted,

Veitches and Cavendish

Rds were

targeted.

Roy Appley

The spokeswoman

said some

of the reports received last week

came in some time after the

damage was caused.

That brings the total reported

number of rocks smashing windows

to about 12.

A 94-year-old woman was

sitting at home last Sunday

evening when a rock smashed

through her lounge window

where she sits at night and

watches television.

She got up to call the police,

and when she was out of the

lounge, a second rock came flying

through the already broken

window.

The woman phoned a neighbour

for help, and not long after

the neighbour arrived, a third

rock was thrown at her kitchen

window, which luckily did not

smash.

Sandra Dougall also had a

window smashed on her Highsted

Rd property, and said the

week before, two rocks hit her

roof.

Last week, the Nor’West

News revealed police had been

undertaking a series of “covert

and overt operations” to try and

catch the people responsible for

the broken windows.

Senior Sergeant Roy Appley

said police had not held anybody

responsible for the damage as of

last week, but said the operations

DAMAGE:

Rocks

continue to

be thrown

through

windows in

Bishopdale

in spite of an

police

presence. ​

would continue.

He said police are always

happy to receive anonymous

information from members

of the community, and people

are also able to report through

crimestoppers.

Last week, three children were

seen throwing eggs at the back of

the Bishopdale Unichem Pharmacy,

near New World.

Pharmacy owner Maria

Morley-Bunker was not sure if

the damage was connected to the

rocks but believed police were

investigating further.

Said Mrs Morley-Bunker: “I’m

not aware of it being connected

[to the rock throwing]. I think

it was just kids seeing an

opportunity and being a bit

silly.”

In Brief

ODOUR TREATMENT UNIT

Work has started on a new

odour treatment unit on

Cavendish Rd in Casebrook.

The unit will treat the odour

generated by the local sewer

system. Some on-road parking

will be lost, and a section of the

footpath on the eastern side of

the road will be closed during

the works. Work is expected to

run until December.

ON-RAMP TO RE-OPEN

The Chaneys on-ramp is

scheduled to re-open on

Monday. The left-hand turn

from Marshland Rd, and Hills

Rd, are also set to re-open

by Monday. There have been

delays the completion of this

work due to broken machinery.

The Chaneys on-ramp will

close permanently when

the Christchurch Northern

Corridor opens next year.

BOARD MEETING

The Papanui-Innes

Community Board will hold

its first ordinary meeting on

Friday at 9.15am. Newly elected

board members will meet at the

Board Room in the Papanui

first agenda set by the city

council since October’s local

body elections. The meeting is

Fantastic selection

of quality gifts

Affordable for any budget

Free

luxury gift

wrapping

Extensive gift selection makes Christmas shopping easy

Gift buying for almost everyone on your list

can be as easy as walking into the special gift

section at Bishopdale Unichem Pharmacy and

browsing through their enormous range.

The pharmacy’s buyer, Yvonne, has been with the

business for more than 40 years, during which

time she has gained extensive experience and

understanding of what people are looking for

when shopping for gifts.

The selection includes toiletries in many leading

brands, attractive and quirky home décor items,

scarves and beautiful boxed jewellery. Gifts are

displayed in colour ranges, which makes gift

selection easier.

There are also food items such as Champagne

and Strawberry Daiquiri Gummy Bears, and

easy-mix dip sachets – ideal for small gifts or as

stocking fillers.

In order to source the wide variety of gifts and

discover the latest trends, Yvonne attends NZ Gift

Fairs three times a year – twice in Auckland and

once in Christchurch.

“By going to the fairs where they have all the new

gift items on display, I am able to source and

stock different items from what other pharmacies

may have,” Yvonne says. “This year we have some

new suppliers as well.”

Some of the most popular items currently in-store

include: ceramic family heads, (which can be used

as pot plant holders or simply as décor items),

boxed toiletry sets for men and women, hypo

allergenic jewellery, makeup and makeup brush

sets and the fantastic Moana Rd sunglasses range.

The new Moana Rd unisex Jandal selection has

just arrived. Another new favourite range is from

Hauland and includes recycled and reusable gift

bags as well as toothbrush covers.

Yvonne says they receive frequent and

consistently positive feedback from customers

about the pharmacy’s gift selection. These include:

“I always buy my gifts from here.”

“Friendly, helpful staff and they try to reorder in

specific gifts when they can”

“It’s the best pharmacy in Christchurch.”

The pharmacy provides a free gift-wrapping

service with quality paper and ribbon. This is

available for all gift purchases, no matter what

they cost.

You will also find an extensive selection of

magazines, as well as greeting cards for all

occasions.

Maori playground for school

• By Claire Booker

A NEW playground designed

around pre-European Maori

huts is being planned for St

Albans School.

The playground, which will

cost about $250 000, will be

based around a central hut-like

structure,

leading out

to multiple

islands, with

a reference to

the marshes

the city is

built on.

The main

Ginnie Warren

play space for

the school was

damaged in the earthquakes and

has mostly been demolished,

which sparked fundraising for

the new playground.

The school has raised $100,000

from its parent teacher association,

a further $100,000 from its

board of trustees and it will now

apply for $50-$70,000 to fund

the rest of the project.

St Albans School has the

oldest Maori bilingual unit

in Canterbury and principal

Ginnie Warren said it is

important the school celebrates

its unique cultural values.

“It is important to us that we

weave that cultural narrative

EXPERT: Play consultant Tina Dyer (centre) worked with

St Albans School pupils Clark (left), Sabrina and Charlie to

brainstorm ideas for the new school playground.

through our playground design,

and it is fantastic to see how our

designer is already bringing that

to life in the concept drawings,”

Mrs Warren said.

Playground designer Adrian

Taylor, who is a landscape architect

and parent of the school said

designing playgrounds is one

of the most fun and rewarding

parts of his work.

“I love the concept of kids

learning through play, so when

I saw the opportunity to be involved

in the playground project

at my daughter’s school I jumped

at the chance,” Mr Taylor said.

The school held a workshop

for parents and students to meet

with play consultant Tina Dyer

on October 31, to help with the

design.

Said Mr Taylor of the workshop:

“This workshop has

provided us with some gems

of ideas that will really help to

shape the detailed design stage,

which we are moving onto next.”

Ms Dyer said because people

know more about the importance

of play in learning, she is

able to help design play spaces

which encourage children to

develop their creativity, cooperation

and social skills.

She said having the pupils

involved in the design process

is the best way to make sure

the play space will be used, and

a good way to come up with

unique designs that many adults

would probably never think of.

“I always get blown away

by the gems the kids come up

with,” she said.

Overhaul for

Armitage Reserve

BISHOPDALE’S Armitage

Reserve playground has come to

the end of its lifespan and will get

a major overhaul.

The city council is asking

the public for feedback on the

equipment chosen for the new

playground.

But as well as undergoing a

revamp, the playground will be

moved due to it currently being

located under power pylons.

This also means the playground

is closer to the street to improve

access and is further away from

the nearby houses to limit noise.

All of the existing equipment will

be removed and replaced with

new modern equipment.

The smaller area available for

the playground (away from the

pylons) will mean there will be

less equipment.

Once consultation has closed

city council staff will make

a recommendation to the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board.

Annandale playground in Ilam

will also undergo a revamp.

the proposed plans, visit

Dux

PETER BRYANT MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP is

awarded to the Dux of the school Ethan Ng

This is an annual award, established by

the Board of Trustees, to acknowledge the

outstanding contribution to Burnside High

School of the late Dr Peter Bryant, in his role

as the Chairperson of the Board of Trustees.

When Ethan joined us in Year 12, his previous

school provided a thorough record of all of

his achievements while he was a student

there. This was a star studded resume

including massive academic accolades and

top prizes in everything from Cantamath to

Mathmatical Olympiad’s with first place and

distinction awards aplenty.

It also included medals and distinction

awards for Australian Mathematics, Digital

Technology, Science, English and Spelling.

The school described Ethan as “highly

articulate and with a hunger for learning that

drives an insatiable quest for knowledge”.

They also describe him as having an

“infectious giggle” which is confirmed by

our staff and students as they report to me

that he is “just a nice guy to hang out with”

“and that he has a warm sense of humour”.

At all levels of his schooling he has worked

far beyond the expected curriculum level,

demonstrating astounding ability to absorb

new information.

Earlier this year, Ethan was named New

Zealand’s Top School Mathematician -

being described as a “once in a generation

mathematician”, likely due to the fact that he

will only turn 15 next week, and the school he

came to us from two years ago was Merrin

School.

The 47 NCEA credits he has earned this year

are exclusively at Excellence level and he is

entered for no less than seven Scholarship

exams on top of his other SIX subjects.

At graduation Ethan collected awards

including First Place in Chemistry, Accounting

and Economics and Excellence Awards for

Calculus, Physics and Statistics.

We wish Ethan well for his examinations and

future endeavours as he aims for selection

in the New Zealand Olympiad Mathematics

team before beginning a double degree in

Mathematics and Mechatronics Engineering

at the University of Canterbury.

Proxime Accessit Award 2019

Felix Backhouse

When Felix came to Burnside High School, the enrolment notes supplied,

described him as a highly capable, quiet and studious person, and that an

advanced Mathematics programme would be advised. He was very serious and

focussed on his academic work from the outset and his love of learning was a

common observation by all his teachers at both Westburn and his early years

at Burnside High School. While Music has been a passion for him throughout

his time at Burnside High School earning him countless awards, his academic

dominance has seen him earn top placings in every subject he has studied since

2015, including the General Excellence Award for West Division last year.

He puts his success down to not much more than just doing the work and keeping up with

things, however his teachers have described him as incredibly thoughtful and analytical – deep thinking and

with a wry sense of humour – he is the one they need to watch when they make a mistake because he WILL

pick up on it.

His Cambridge and NCEA results earned make for impressive reading. In NCEA, he has amassed 257 credits at

Excellence Level, with few lower grades and he enters his exams with a clean sweep of 34 Excellence credits

at level three behind him. He also will tackle Scholarship examinations in FIVE subjects this year.

Felix was offered a $20 000 Top Achievers Scholarship to Auckland University in 2020, however his intention

is to study at University of Canterbury and he has secured Emerging Leaders and High Achievers Scholarships

to go there.

We wish Felix well as he embarks on his very impressive and exciting future.

Musician of the year

The winner of the Peter Rowe Cup for Musicianship is Felix Backhouse

Felix is an outstanding all-round musician who has contributed at the highest

level to every facet of the music department in his five years at Burnside High

School.

He came through the Specialist Music Programme at Westburn School and

started Burnside as a very good violinist who also played trombone. He leaves

as an outstanding trombonist who may still play a bit of violin!

Felix has been a member of Malestrom for five years, experiencing every

competition success they have achieved. He has been a member of the Symphonic

Band and the lead trombonist for the Big Band for five years; during which time he has

won countless awards, including Best Trombonist at the Manawatu and NZSM Jazz Festivals

in 2018 and Best Overall Musician.

He has been a member of the award winning Funk Band for five years and the Burnside Orchestra for five

years, four as section leader. Felix has been selected for membership of the New Zealand Secondary Schools’

Symphony Orchestra and the New Zealand Youth Jazz Orchestra and has experienced success in the NZCT

Chamber Music Contest.

Sportsman of the Year

Sang-Yong Park

Sang-Yong won his third NZSS Table Tennis Teams title at the NZ Secondary

Schools Championships, and also placed 2nd in the U19 Individual singles at this

tournament. At the South Island Championships he placed 1st in U18 Boys singles,

U18 Boys doubles and U18 Mixed doubles and 2nd in the Mens Open singles.

Internationally he competed at the ITTF Oceania Junior Championships in Tonga,

claiming Silver in the Boys Team and Bronze in Boys Doubles. In the recent ITTF-

Oceania NZ Open Championships, he could only compete in two events due to a

back injury, but gained a gold medal in the U18 mixed doubles and a silver in the

U21 mixed doubles. He has recently been awarded the 2019 Junior Player of the

Year Cup, from Table Tennis NZ. He is also a Table Tennis Coach of junior players.

Sportswoman of the Year

Ellena Firth

Ellena captained our Canterbury Secondary Schools’ Champion Burnside High

School Girls Football 1st XI team this year. Ellena plays for Canterbury United

Pride which were National League winners, and for Coastal Spirit Premier

Womens - the team who were runners-up in the NZ Cup. Ellena was named in

the U19 NZ Secondary Schools team, and selected for their tour to America.

She also plays Cricket for Burnside High and the St Albans Cricket Club and

made the Canterbury U18 Girls Cricket team this year.

Commuter bus plan

to lower traffic volumes

• By Claire Booker

PROPOSED commuter

buses from the Waimakariri

District could help to lower

the number of vehicles set to

travel through St Albans when

the Christchurch Northern

Corridor opens next year.

The buses will utilise a carpool

lane from the Waimakariri on the

Christchurch Northern Corridor.

The motorway extension will

increase the number of vehicles

which will travel on Cranford

St to the central city, through St

Albans.

Traffic volumes on Cranford

St are expected to increase from

21,000 vehicles per day to 48,000

each day within five years.

St Albans resident Mark Wilson,

who has been advocating

for the mitigation effects of the

motorway in St Albans said the

proposed commuter buses is a

step in the right direction.

Said Mr Wilson: “It’s the right

direction, that’s what we’ve been

screaming and shouting about

for months. But the real question

is, how does the Waimakariri

District Council and ECan make

the buses enticing?

“It’s all about the city council,

PROPOSED: Environment Canterbury is consulting with

residents in the Waimakariri District over a possible commuter

bus lane which could help to mitigate the effects of the

Christchurch Northern Corridor.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE ​

ECan and the Waimakariri

District Council being brave and

actually making decisions for

the future,” he said.

But if the commuter bus plan

is implemented, it would require

additional targeted public

transport rates from those in the

Waimakariri to pay for it.

Environment Canterbury,

Waimakariri District Council

and NZ Transport Agency will

consult with the Waimakariri

community on the proposal,

which would also see park and

ride facilities in Rangiora and

Kaiapoi.

Said ECan senior manager

for public transport Stewart

Gibbon: “To provide a direct

commuter service from both

Rangiora and Kaiapoi would

require additional Waimakariri

targeted public transport

rates, beyond what is currently

rated for. We need to know if

the community supports the

concept and agrees that partly

funding the proposed service via

rates is a good idea.”

Send in your

designs for

the Mairehau

Library

wall mural

PLANS FOR a mural in

Mairehau are finally under way

about a year after a resident

floated the idea.

Earlier this year, the Papanui-

Innes Community Board

secured $1000 to go towards the

cost of a mural on the back of

the Mairehau Library.

Now a competition is under

way to find a colourful design to

brighten the grey brick wall on

the rear of the library.

People over five-years-old have

been invited to create an A3 plan

for a bright mural to decorate

the wall on the Patrick St side of

the library.

Mairehau Library staff may

use more than one design in the

final mural, and artwork must

be an original piece.

Any medium is acceptable for

the designs, including pastel,

ink, acrylic, crayon or digital

designs.

Send your designs to the

Mairehau Library by December

16 to be in the running to have it

displayed on the wall.

Eco-friendly transport use on the rise

PEOPLE ARE using their cars less

and walking, biking or scooting

more, a survey has found.

The life in Christchurch

transport survey findings show

while travel by car is still the

most popular mode of transport

in the city, there has been an

increase in the use of alternative

ways to get around.

The survey questioned about

3500 Christchurch residents

about their travel habits and the

city’s transport network.

Said city council monitoring

and research team leader Kath

Jamieson: “The proportion of

people who say they are using

their car less now compared to

12 months ago is 27 per cent –

up from 19 per cent in 2018.”

More than 40 per cent of

respondents said they cycle more

often now than they did a year

ago while 21 per cent say they

walk more often.

Ms Jamieson said the arrival

of electric scooters in Christchurch

has also impacted the way

people move around the city.

“Nineteen per cent of

survey participants reported

that they have used a rental e-

scooter more than once a month

in the past 12 months, while

two per cent of those surveyed

said they own their own e-scooter

so it has become a popular

alternative form of transport,’’

ECO-FRIENDLY: The life in Christchurch transport survey has found more people are opting to

cycle, walk and scooter around the city. ​

Ms Jamieson said.

The number of people using

public transport has risen from

29 per cent in 2018, to 32 per

cent this year.

Ms Jamieson said the survey

showed the condition of roads

and footpaths are continuing to

trouble people.

“Fifty-one per cent of the people

surveyed said they were dissatisfied

or very dissatisfied with

the condition of Christchurch’s

roads. Ongoing patch repairs to

road, potholes and uneven road

surfaces are the main reasons

people gave for their dissatisfaction,’’

Ms Jamieson said.

The city council recently

revealed an investment case that

NOR’WEST NEWS

seeks $25-30 million funding to

improve the safety and condition

on more than 100 roads in

suburban areas of the city.

The areas proposed for

roading upgrades are New

Brighton, Richmond, Linwood,

Woolston, Spreydon, Somerfield,

Waltham, Beckenham and

Riccarton.

HISTORY:

St Andrew’s

College will

play in the

Gillette Cup

national

tournament

for the first

time next

month.

St Andrew’s finally crack

Gillette Cup competition

• By Gordon Findlater

FOR ST Andrew’s College first

XI coach Mike Johnston, 18

years of coming agonisingly

close was worth the wait

when his side qualified for

the Gillette Cup for the

first time.

When St Andrew’s

defeated Christ’s College

by 186 runs in the

Gillette Cup Canterbury

regional qualifying final

at Mainpower Oval in

Rangiora they created

history.

St Andrew’s have never

qualified for the national

tournament, which has been the

Mike

Johnston

pinnacle of secondary school

cricket since it was established

in 1990.

“It’s taken a long time. I’ve

been to a lot of finals before,

but to finally crack it is

awesome,” said Johnston.

The final against

Christ’s was the sixth

Johnston has been

involved in while

coaching the team. Many

have gone right down

to the wire and one of

the most heart-breaking

losses even resulted in a

draw.

That loss came in 2008

when the St Andrew’s team,

containing Black Cap Henry

Nicholls, Wellington allrounder

Logan van Beek and

Auckland pace bowler Matt

McEwan, lost in a bowl off to St

Bede’s College which featured

Matt Henry. The Gillette Cup

tournament will take place at

Lincoln University and Hagley

Oval from December 1-6. St

Andrew’s will play the winners

of the regional qualifying

tournaments in Otago, Central

Districts, Wellington, Auckland

and Northern Districts.

“Now we’ve got there our aim

is to perform really well and

hopefully we can win it because

we’ve got a very well balanced

side,” said Johnston.

SARAH LAWRENCE will

perform at the famous London

Globe Theatre next year with

the Shakespeare Globe Centre

New Zealand Young Shakespeare

Company.

The Rangi Ruru year 13 student

is one of four Christchurch

students who has been selected

as a member of the young Shakespeare

company.

Cashmere High School’s Jorja

Farrant and Michael Higgs, as

well as Catholic Cathedral’s

Lucy Sparks, will be among the

24 secondary school students

to head to the United Kingdom

next year.

The students will attend workshops

at Shakespeares’ Globe

in London, have question and

answer sessions with actors and

directors, and go on behind-thescenes

tours of the globe in their

two weeks in London.

Sarah and the other young actors

will watch professional performances

and attend rehearsals

with a globe director, before

performing scenes from one of

Shakespeare’s plays on the globe

stage in front of an audience.

They will also spend a week in

Stratford-upon-Avon, the village

where Shakespeare was born.

Sarah was selected for the trip

after being selected for a national

Shakespeare school production,

which was additionally supported

by her membership of the

Court Theatre Youth Company.

Said Sarah of working in the

production: “The experience of

playing Lady Macbeth in the

Pipitea Marae on the Wellington

waterfront then again in the

Legislative Council Chamber in

Parliament was unforgettable.”

Sarah will travel to London in

July and is planning to study law

Laser hair removal, skin needling, Botox fillers, micro

peel, laser pigmentation removal, vascular treatment and

LED light therapy are all provided in private, relaxing

rosacea, and for skin rejuvenation, where it induces

an approximately 400 per cent increase in collagen

production.

For cosmetic enhancement treatments, the therapists

use the Skinstitute skincare product range, which is also

available for purchase.

“In terms of pricing for our treatments, no-one can

match us across the board,” Nicola says.

Clients are invited to take advantage of Laser Clinics’

special offers, which are currently available – Brazilian

and underarm hair removal is just $49 a session, with 10

Living together

with a hearing loss

Living with an unaided hearing loss is

basically no fun at all: It’s upsetting for

the person with a hearing loss, but it’s also

frustrating for you as a relative, whether

you are a spouse, daughter, grandchild,

friend or colleague – it affects all of you.

For you as a relative living or being close

to someone with a hearing loss you have

most probably experienced:

• You have to behave as a translator or a

buffer.

• Your loved ones’ social life declines

because going out can be exhausting for

both of you.

• You sometimes feel as if you are slowly

losing your partner, parent or friend to

isolation.

5 Tips to talk about hearing

1. Express care and support. Talk from

your heart with deep compassion and let

them know they have your full support.

2. Guide them through their journey.

Help your loved one discover their

hearing loss – they might not fully

comprehend the extent of it, and neither

do you.

was saying ‘yes’ to

was a glass of Fanta.

TALENTED: The Christchurch Girls’ High School sevens team will be contenders

at the Condor Sevens tournament from from November 28 to December 1.

CGHS aim to impress

at Condor Sevens

• By Jacob Page

THE Christchurch Girls’

High School sevens team

will look to earn a medal

at the Condor Sevens later

this month in Auckland.

The South Island

secondary school

champions will head to

the tournament at Kings

College on November 28 as

one of the favourites after

finishing second in 2017

and third last year.

The team won the

Canterbury qualifiers a

fortnight ago and will look

to impress against strong

North Island opposition.

Coach Jamie Livingstone

has been with the team

for the past five years and

they have not finished

FOR RANGI Ruru Girls’

School twins Maddy and

Georgia Sheat, touch used

to be a social sport they

played at the Nunweek

Touch competition.

Seven years on, the pair

are now set to debut for

New Zealand at the 2020

youth transtasman test

series in Newcastle.

Maddy said their

involvement in the sport

continued “because

of how cool the touch

environment is compared

to other sports.”

She will join a six-team

contingent to take on the

Australian Emus in a best

of three match series in

January.

The pair have differing

strengths on the touch

field. Georgia is more of a

rucking player who loves

yards, while Maddy is the

better passer who plays a

more supportive role on

lower than sixth under his

guidance. He said the team

are motivated to maintain

their high standards.

“I feel we have a good

mix of power and speed

and we try to attack using

both of those,” he said.

“The girls are very driven

and set their own goals

and want to get out of their

pool and then see what

happens once they make

the top eight.”

Livingstone said

traditionally the team have

struggled on day one of

the tournament and it was

something he was eager to

rectify.

“We get up there and we

always start very slow.

“We don’t play a game

the field. However, they

will be playing for different

in the three weeks leading

into the tournament and

that really affects us.

“We gained a lot of

confidence from the South

Islands win three weeks

ago and so hopefully that

carries through to this

tournament.”

Livingstone said he

was lucky to have a squad

which was committed to

the sport.

“We know the

competition in Auckland

will be much tougher

than what we are used to

seeing down here, but we

think we can match it with

anyone on our day.”

•The tournament will

run from November 28

to December 1.

Mixed team.

While the Australians

are the current youth

world champions, the Kiwi

teams will be looking to

display enough moments

of brilliance to turn the

tide.

Said Maddy: “I’m

looking forward to the

challenge the games and

heat will bring and getting

to play with an exceptional

bunch of girls from around

the country.”

The twins will join

four other sibling duos

representing New Zealand

at the competition.

Said Georgia: “Growing

up we have done most

things together, both on

and off the sports field, so

it’s pretty exciting to add

this to the list.”

Tasty Bites

How to make a cake taste as good as it looks

There is not much better

than a cup of tea or

coffee and a slice of cake,

especially when it almost

looks too good to eat. Here’s

one you can easily decorate

yourself

Morning Magpie’s carrot

cake

For the cake

2 free-range eggs and 2 freerange

egg yolks

4 free range egg whites

320g flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp ground cloves

400g neutral-tasting oil such as

sunflower or canola

540g white sugar

100g chopped walnuts

100g desiccated coconut

270g peeled and grated carrot

(about two carrots)

For the icing

525g cream cheese

210g softened (to room

temperature) butter

105g icing sugar

75g honey

fresh thyme

Directions

Cake

Separate the eggs (six in total).

Put the whole eggs and yolks

in one bowl, and the whites in

another large, clean and dry

metal bowl.

You will be left with two

spare egg yolks (with a little

imagination you can find a way

to put them to good use in some

other noble kitchen endeavour).

Add a pinch of salt to the egg

whites and, with an electric

beater, whisk until they form

stiff white peaks (the salt helps to

stabilise them). Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the

sugar and oil on high for 2min.

Add the whole eggs and egg

yolks, continuing to mix until

incorporated.

Use a rubber spatula to mix the

walnuts, coconut, and carrot into

the creamed oil and eggs.

Sift the flour, baking powder

and soda, and spices into the wet

mix, and delicately fold through.

Fold one-third of the whipped

egg whites into the rest of the

batter, followed by the rest of

them. Don’t worry if there are a

few streaks of white left – this is

far preferable to over-mixing the

cake batter.

Divide the

batter between

two greased

round silicon cake

moulds. Make sure

to weigh as you

are filling them,

so that the two

rounds end up

evenly sized.

Bake in the

centre of the oven

for 40min at 160

deg C.

After baking,

let the cake cool

completely in the

moulds (at least

four hours).

If you are

leaving it overnight

before icing – this

is a good idea –

wrap the rounds

in cling film

once cooled and removed from

moulds.

Assembly and decoration

Make sure all ingredients are at

room temperature, and also clear

a shelf in your fridge that a large

chopping board will fit on.

In a large bowl, beat the

cream cheese on high for about

4min, until it takes on a silky

consistency. Beat in the butter.

Add the icing sugar and honey,

and reduce the beater to a lower

speed until they are fully mixed

through. Then your icing is

ready.

If the cake rose into a dome

shape while baking, remove the

rounded top with a bread knife

to make sure both rounds are

level.

Place one cake round on a

large chopping board, and spread

a 1cm thick layer of icing on top

of it. Stack the other round on

it, making sure the two are well

aligned. Don’t worry if some of

the filling comes out the sides.

Use an offset spatula to spread

a thin layer of icing over the top

and sides of the assembled cake.

It doesn’t matter if you can see

the cake through this layer. Once

it is covered, place the cake in the

fridge for one hour. When this

first layer of icing sets, it prevents

any dark cake crumbs getting

mixed up in the final layer of

white icing.

Once the first layer is set,

remove the cake from the fridge

and apply the rest of the icing as

you see fit. You can put a thick

layer on the top and a scant layer

around the sides, but this is just

a matter of taste – you should

experiment and find a style you

like. Chill the cake for another

hour before cutting. Garnish

with fresh thyme leaves and flaky

sea salt. Use a hot bread knife to

cut the cake, cleaning it between

each slice.

Summerset at Wigram serviced apartment resident, Alma with daughter Maree

Serviced apartments,

the best of both worlds

Discover how Summerset living allows

Alma to stay active and thrive

NOR’WEST NEWS

“ Since Mum’s been here,

she’s just blossomed”

From growing up in a big family in Christchurch to being happily married for 63 years, Alma’s had

plenty of company throughout her whole life.

So, when the option to move to a Summerset serviced apartment came up, Alma and daughter

Maree were naturally a little nervous it might be a bit on the quiet side for her. But, since the move,

they’ve discovered it’s been anything but quiet.

“I don’t think you’d ever need to feel lonely here. It’s just like a big family and there’s always

something going on,” remarks Alma.

When she first arrived at her serviced apartment, Alma had her husband by her side. Sadly, he

passed away shortly after due to on-going health issues. “I thought it might take her a little while to

deal with the loss of dad and… the new surroundings, but it was quite amazing really how quickly

she settled, and I think that was down to the staff,” recalls daughter Maree.

Alma with Maree as a toddler

While the move was a big decision, the whole family feel that Alma has “blossomed” since and

has become more herself again.

“ She’s involved herself in things that she hadn’t done for years, Choir. Exercising.

She’s just taken it with both hands, made friends and it’s all been just amazing.”

Maree and Alma both admit that the stigma of retirement living put them off for longer than it

needed to. “I think mum was just so delighted when she came here and realised how welcoming

and how well-run [the place was] and what care was here for her. I think it was an eye-opener, really.”

Having Alma living at home with her would have been a dream for Maree, but with the reality of

working all day, she worried her mum would be very bored. But Alma hasn’t had time for boredom

at all since moving to Summerset. “There’s so much to keep you occupied. Music. Happy Hour, little

outings. It’s a lovely place to be.”

Alma also fills her time with a cheeky bit of cleaning, even though she doesn’t need to lift a finger.

“I don’t think she leaves a lot for the staff to clean, but that’s mum,” laughs Maree.

“It’s a relief for us to know that she’s taken care of. Dad would be so pleased to see she’s in a

place like this. It’s just been a godsend.”
