remaining buildings.

Last year the redevelopment of the

school began as part of the Canterburywide

school building programme

following the earthquakes.

The first part of the redevelopment

involved a new building linking and

expanding the junior block; a new

administration block; the transformation

of the former office into a dedicated

high-technology hub for Yr 7 and 8

students; and construction of a new

combined library and flexible learning

space.

This year the redevelopment continues

– and will be completed – with the

refurbishment of existing buildings,

including two long brick ‘Canterbury

the school opened.

flair for the piano into a fulltime

It was the late 1960s, and Mrs

“It is exciting to see the changes that

have happened already and for students

to be occupying the new buildings. It

is also wonderful to anticipate how the

improved facilities will cater for current

and future generations of students in our

community,’’ she said.

A lot of effort had gone into minimising

disruption to teaching, learning and the

neighbouring community during the

project, and everyone’s patience was

greatly appreciated, Mrs Trotter said.

The Ministry of Education funded the

‘building’ part of the redevelopment

but a lot of costs, such as playgrounds,

landscaping, furniture, curtains and new

technology items, would be paid for

by the school’s Board of Trustees and

the Parent Teacher Association, Mrs

Trotter said. This community input to the

school’s future was valued, she said.

The redevelopment is scheduled to

finish before the end of 2020.

Board’s food budget to remain

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THERE ARE no plans to further

cut back food expenditure for a

community board’s fortnightly

meeting.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board’s catering

budget will remain at $85 per

meeting.

Board member Helen

Broughton

told Western

News it was

decided the

budget would

remain the

same.

The issue

was raised

Catherine Chu

at a public-excluded

meeting

in November while the board

was discussing what its goals for

the next three years are.

Central Riccarton Residents’

Association secretary Garth Wilson

has raised concerns over why

the issue was raised in a private

board meeting.

In 2018 it was revealed the

board was the biggest spender

on food catering spending more

than $10,000 spent since 2016/17.

It was decided at a publicexcluded

meeting in 2018 the

board’s catering budget would be

reduced from $174 to $85.

But Mrs Broughton said it was

not a formal decision to keep

the budget the same – it was one

of many “housekeeping” issues

raised as part of the meeting.

“I think it was a reasonable

process . . . a number of issues

for the new board members were

raised because it is a new board,”

she said.

But Mr Wilson said for years

he and members of the association

have been concerned about

aspects of the board’s decisionmaking

processes and keeping

the food budget the same in a

private meeting added weight.

“It is outrageous that board

members, some of whom are

earning over $100,000 pa as

councillors, would expect lowincome

residents and ratepayers

of whom there are many in the

board area to pay for such food,”

he said.

But city councillor Catherine

Chu agreed with Mrs Broughton.

She said it wasn’t a secret meeting

– it was a conversation on

what the board’s views were on

the food expenditure.

She said as part of the board

discussing its three-year goals,

city council staff acknowledged

it had received feedback on the

catering and wanted to address

the issue.

Cr Chu said at the meeting

it was discussed meetings this

term may be shorter and more

frequent compared to last term.

“From that conversation, my

thoughts were, and I made it

quite clear, we shouldn’t have

catering because it is not necessary,”

she said.

Cr Chu said if it knew a public

meeting will go for longer than

two hours she would be okay

with food such as biscuits or fruit

being put out.

Board chairman Mike Mora

said the majority of the board

agreed to keep the budget as it

was.

He said he was happy with

what was determined.

“The board made a decision

and that is what it is,” Mr Mora

said.

‘It was a lovely surprise’

• From page 1

It tops off a successful year

for the 81-year-old, who was

made a life member of the New

Zealand Institute of Registered

Music Teachers and was selected

to be an Associate of the Royal

Academy of Music last year.

Like many dedicated to

serving their community, Mrs

Stott was left “very surprised” to

receive the award.

“It is not anything I ever expected

to happen. It was a lovely

surprise,” she said.

Mrs Stott’s passion for teaching

and playing the piano began

in high school when she began

helping her own piano teacher

with teaching.

“I have just enjoyed it really,”

she said.

As well as taking private lessons,

she taught music at Canterbury

University for 20 years.

When she reached her 80s,

many asked her why she was still

teaching.

“As long as I could do it well,

why would I stop. The children

who came to my home were so

interesting and lovely,” Mrs Stott

said.

It was only in March last year

she retired, due to health issues –

and has been visited by many of

her students since.

CHERISHED: Rosemary Stott

was known as a natural at

playing the piano, from when

she first began learning at the

age of five.

Some of Mrs Stott’s most successful

students have included

Tony Chen Lin, who performed

with Michael Houstoun and

the Christchurch Symphony

Orchestra at the opening of the

Christchurch Town Hall.

But as well building a busy

music teaching career, Mrs Stott

also became a well-known performer

and composer.

For many years a national

artist for Radio New Zealand. In

2001 she began performing with

her piano trio, Tresoli.

Following the February 22,

2011, earthquake Mrs Stott

helped save the Clef Club,

now known as Music Alive

which provides performance

opportunities for amateur

musicians.

She was also one of the first

New Zealanders to be appointed

as an international examiner

for the Associated Board of the

Royal Schools of Music in London

in 1991.

“It is quite demanding. You do

need incredible concentration,”

she said.

On her first tour as an examiner

in Hong Kong and Macao,

she recalled assessing 1000

candidates over 12 weeks.

“The adults get more nervous

than the children. I did have an

experience in Hong Kong. A

woman came in and she was so

nervous she couldn’t get past the

first few notes,” Mrs Stott said.

She said while the candidate

“scraped through by the skin of

her teeth” she was pleased she

encouraged her to get through.

Inspiring children

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN DAVID Denton first

started up an event aimed at

inspiring children to pursue

fishing – he never thought it

would grow to the success it is

today.

In the 1980s he had been

tasked by a group of influential

New Zealanders including

former Prime Minister Sir Jack

Marshall and long-distance runner

Murray Halberg to set up

an event aimed to get families

outdoors.

Upon receiving the phone call,

the Yaldhurst resident went on

to establish Take a Kid Fishing

– an annual family fishing event

which initially attracted several

hundred people on its first day

in 1988.

Years of dedication to outdoor

recreation and supporting youth

has seen Mr Denton recognised

with a Queen’s Service Medal.

He said it

was “very

special” to

receive the

honour and it

“came out of

the blue.”

More than 20 years on, the

Take a Kid Fishing event has

grown to attract 6000 people

– which aims to teach children

the full process of fishing from

catching, to cleaning, filleting

and cooking a fish.

“That patience and discipline

(of fishing) is a great education

for young people.”

Mr Denton

said the idea for

the fishing event

started when

United States

President Ronald Reagan was

looking for ways to get children

involved in an outdoor experience.

to go fishing

Mr Denton said he feels all the

volunteers helping out with Take

a Kid Fishing deserve to be part

of the QSM he received.

He said on the main days, more

than 50-75 volunteers are needed

to make the event a success.

The Isaac Conservation and

Wildlife Trust sponsors the

salmon for the event which

costs “thousands of dollars,” Mr

Denton said.

“We want to keep it free. We

have good equipment, we can

loan them a rod and reel and

good fishermen. It is a very safe

venue,” Mr Denton said.

Since 1988, Mr Denton has

formed many relationships with

sponsors, retailers, clubs and

organisations to ensure the event

remains free.

“That is something I am holding

onto dearly.”

While Take A Kid Fishing

has been a successful event, it is

only one of Mr Denton’s achievements.

In 1988 he also established

the New Zealand Future Fishing

Foundation to get children

involved in fishing.

Mr Denton was the Kids Fishing

Charitable Trust chairman

for 20 years, along with served

as the New Zealand Sports Dealers

Federation president and

executive member of the Sports

Industry Association.

A third-generation fisherman,

his father got him into fishing at

the age of 10 in the south branch

of Waimakariri River.

Since then he has fished for

about 75 years.

Mr Denton said most of the

time his interest is in catching

the fish rather than taking them

home to cook – and will often let

them go.

“Fish were a lot more plentiful

than they are today. I caught the

bug and loved it.”

•This year the Take a Kid

Fishing event will be held on

September 27.

Dedication to athletes

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE MAN responsible for

recruiting hundreds of potential

athletes to represent New

Zealand in the Paralympic

Games has been awarded the

New Zealand Order of Merit.

Sockburn’s Hadleigh Pierson

has been recognised with the

honour after contributing nearly

20 years of service to the parasports

community.

He said it was “very nice” to

receive the award and was lucky

to be in a job he enjoys.

Pierson, 39, has had several

roles at ParaFed Canterbury.

From 2001 to 2005, he was employed

as their sports co-ordinator

and guided the Canterbury

athletes through the 2004 Summer

Paralympic Games.

He developed programme

New Zealand of Talent Identification

while working at Paralympics

New Zealand.

Pierson has played a significant

role in identifying talented

athletes as well as establishing

and maintaining athlete development

squads in the lead-up to

the London 2012 and Rio 2016

Paralympic Games.

While he was born with

osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle

bones), he has a successful sports

HONOURED: Hadleigh

Pierson has dedicated nearly

20 years of service to the

para-sports community.

career and was selected to represent

New Zealand Paralympic

teams for Sydney in 2000 and

Athens in 2004.

In both events, he made the

top eight and he describes the

opportunity of taking part in the

competition as the “pinnacle”

for parasport. He stopped swimming

in 2004.

Pierson said living with brittle

bones has never affected his life

or his swimming – other than he

uses a wheelchair for mobility.

“I have to be careful and aware

so I don’t put myself in a situation

that gets a fracture,” he

said.

Brittle bones is a genetic

disorder characterised by fragile

bones that break easily.

Over his life, Pierson has had

about 30-40 fractures – but he

said that was mostly from when

he was younger and now that

he is older he makes “smarter

decisions.”

“It hasn’t stopped me at all,”

he said.

Getting into swimming was a

natural progression for Pierson,

he started at the age of nine

before competing from 10.

“Swimming naturally happened

– whenever I broke my leg

I would be in swimming to do

rehab,” he said.

In both events, he made the

top eight.

In 1998 he competed in the

World Para Swimming Championships

at the old Queen Elizabeth

II Park placing fifth.

In 2015, Pierson returned to

ParaFed Canterbury as sports

manager.

He said the greatest part of the

role is seeing the achievements

of young people coming through

the sporting ranks.

His goal is to continue

providing more opportunities

for athletes.

Vandals target

historic building

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE MANAGER of one of the

city’s most historic landmarks has

been left frustrated after the site

has been struck with vandalism

three times in one week.

Facilities at the Riccarton

House and Bush’s public toilets -

including a toilet roll holder, soap

dispenser and air dryer was damaged

between 5.30 and 8.30pm last

Sunday.

The heritage site’s manager

Shona Willis said it was suspected

an ignited aerosol can was used to

vandalise the facilities – resulting

in about $500 worth of damage.

She said security cameras captured

about five youths appearing

to be aged between 14 and 16

along with a car registration plate

on the night the damage took

place.

The toilets are connected to the

historic house, but can only be

accessed from the outside of the

building.

To add to the blow, on Tuesday,

eight youths spray-painted obscenities

and racist remarks on the

property’s driveway at about 8pm,

Mrs Willis said.

She said it was upsetting for the

property to be damaged for no

reason and staff had to spend their

several targets, scorched by

time removing the graffiti when

they could have been doing more

appropriate work on the grounds.

“I think what is really frustrating

is it is such a beautiful place.

Why would anyone want to do

something so senseless?” Mrs Willis

said.

In a third incident, about 15

teenagers came back at about 6pm

on Wednesday, placed a pile of

rubbish on top of a picnic table

and set it on fire – leaving the

picnic table charred.

Mrs Willis said the heritage site

is considering installing more

security cameras to discourage

further vandalism in the future.

The majority of the repair

work to the toilet has since been

completed.

heart of Halswell

Sections from $191,000

•From page 1

The concerns were raised

with Mayor Lianne Dalziel,

chief executive Dawn Baxendale

and city council’s senior

management staff.

Mrs Broughton said it may be

senior management has decided

to formally investigate the concerns

raised under the code of

conduct process.

But this could not be confirmed

by the city council. A

spokeswoman said it is not city

council policy to provide details

on the investigation until an

outcome has been reached or

the parties agree.

Mr Mora said he did not know

who the second complaint was

made by, but had his suspicions.

He said he is going to “wait

and see what happens” because

the new code of conduct process

for the new term has not yet

been adopted by the city council

and board.

But a spokeswoman said it is

currently following section 12.2

of the code of conduct adopted

on May 4, 2017.

Central Riccarton Residents’

Association secretary Garth

Wilson said to his knowledge

cloverden.nz | 08004AVANDA

Concerns raised with mayor

Helen Broughton

neither himself nor members of

the association have made a formal

complaint this term about

Mr Mora.

But he said he had raised concerns

to the city council about

aspects of the board’s decisionmaking

processes and how the

meetings are conducted.

Mr Wilson said some

members had complained to

the city council previously

over concerns surrounding

Mr Mora’s behaviour to Mrs

Broughton, the way the meetings

are chaired and the board’s

decision-making processes – but

could not remember the dates.

He described the last three

years of the board as “completely

dysfunctional.”

In 2018, it was revealed ratepayers

had to fork out $3079 for

three sessions for an independent

facilitator to resolve disputes

within the community board.

But Mr Wilson said nothing

has changed.

“Ratepayer money was spent

on mediation, nothing has improved,”

Mr Wilson said.

Last month, a community

board meeting was adjourned

when a verbal stoush broke

out between two long-serving

members.

Mrs Broughton called a point

of order on Mr Mora twice in

the meeting after he made comments

implying she could not

make a decision.

After the second point of order

was called, the meeting was

adjourned for about 10 minutes.

Following the adjournment,

Mr Mora withdrew his

comment that “someone wants

(the report) to lie on the table

because they can’t make a

decision.”

Plunge ‘as cold as it was 50 years ago’

• By Philip Chandler and

Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FIFTY YEARS after ushering in

the 1970s by jumping into Lake

Wakatipu and blowing his bugle,

Bishopdale’s Robin Bickley

returned to Queenstown to

welcome the new decade in the

same quirky fashion.

After accepting the challenge

from Queenstown mate Lawrence

McSkimming, Mr Bickley,

an MC for the city council’s

monthly citizenship ceremonies,

said: “I tell you what, the water is

as cold as it was 50 years ago.”

“My friends down there put

me up to it. They said come on

it has been 50 years, you need to

celebrate this anniversary,” Mr

Bickley said.

Mr Bickley recalled jumping

off the pier three New Year’s eves

in a row, but he entered the water

more sedately this time.

“There was some trepidation,

after all I am now 75 years old.

But I considered myself fully fit

and accepted it,” he said.

While Mr Bickley entered

the lake alone, he had a “huge”

crowd to cheer him on.

He said it wasn’t taking the

plunge in Lake Wakatipu which

was the attraction – it was being

able to go into the lake playing

the bugle.

Once in the lake, he again

played Reveille on the same wellworn

bugle, with strings hanging

off it, that has accompanied him

almost his whole life.

“It was originally from the

Southland Boys’ High School

brass band or bugle band.”

A lot has happened since Mr

Bickley first jumped into Lake

Wakatipu in 1970.

Born and raised in Riverton,

he went on to study a Bachelor of

Arts at Otago University, before

moving to Christchurch to study

teaching for a year.

CHILLY: Bishopdale’s Robin Bickey ushers in 1970 and 2020

by blowing his bugle in Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown, in these

two photos taken 50 years apart.

His first teaching job was at

Whakatane High School.

In 1969, Mr Bickley travelled

to Canada to teach for one year

before moving to Thailand in

1970.

Initially, he taught English

before becoming a training consultant

for the Thailand Ministry

of Agriculture and Cooperatives.

His role involved helping

Thailand government offices to

design effective training programmes

for their staff members

to work in agriculture development.

In 1991, Mr Bickley, his wife

and two children moved to

Christchurch, where he went on

to work for the city council for

14 years.

He worked as an employment

co-ordinator in human resources

with his role involving advertising

job vacancies, collating job

applications and distributing

documents.

About 20 years ago, Mr Bickley

offered to MC the city council’s

citizenship committees – and

has been in the role ever since.

He now works as a freelance

professional translator and

interpreter.

Oaklands School

Oaklands School in Halswell is being

transformed, with three new purpose

built blocks and the refurbishment of

remaining buildings.

Last year the redevelopment of the

school began as part of the Canterburywide

school building programme

following the earthquakes.

The first part of the redevelopment

involved a new building linking and

expanding the junior block; a new

administration block; the transformation

of the former office into a dedicated

high-technology hub for Yr 7 and 8

students; and construction of a new

combined library and flexible learning

space.

This year the redevelopment continues

– and will be completed – with the

refurbishment of existing buildings,

including two long brick ‘Canterbury

blocks’ that were built in the 1960s when

the school opened.

Principal Margaret Trotter says they are

now more than half way through the

Welcome to new students for the 2020 school year.

Our staff are looking forward to meeting you and

we anticipate yet another ‘Brilliant’ year at Breens

Intermediate School.

Welcome back to our Year 8 students. Hopefully you

have all had a good holiday and are excited about your

learning for this year.

Year 8 students – Thursday 30th January at 8.50am

All students – Friday 31st February at 8.50am

On Friday 31st January – Year 7 & the new Year 8 students

are to assemble at the front of the school. We will have staff

redevelopment and the school campus

is already looking and feeling different.

“It is exciting to see the changes that

have happened already and for students

to be occupying the new buildings. It

is also wonderful to anticipate how the

improved facilities will cater for current

and future generations of students in our

community,’’ she said.

A lot of effort had gone into minimising

disruption to teaching, learning and the

neighbouring community during the

project, and everyone’s patience was

greatly appreciated, Mrs Trotter said.

The Ministry of Education funded the

‘building’ part of the redevelopment

but a lot of costs, such as playgrounds,

landscaping, furniture, curtains and new

technology items, would be paid for

by the school’s Board of Trustees and

the Parent Teacher Association, Mrs

Trotter said. This community input to the

school’s future was valued, she said.

The redevelopment is scheduled to

finish before the end of 2020.

Chisnallwood Intermediate Living by faith in the heart

of the city

Established as a Junior High School,

Chisnallwood is specifically designed to

meet the needs of students in their preadolescent

years. This design has been

carefully developed over many years

and is based on the best that has been

seen in New Zealand and Internationally.

opening doorways to opportunities that

will prepare you fully for secondary and

beyond. A well-balanced mixture of

specialist and home room teaching in

Welcome to Casebrook

Intermediate School

Year 7 & 8 students are a unique

age group that we specialise in

educating. Our staff and school

resources are all geared for this

stage of personal development

and focus on providing as a diverse

range of learning opportunities to

create a rounded and engaged

individual.

Our learning environment is

supported by a strong focus on

our school values of Respect

(Whakaute), Excellence

(Panekiretanga) and Perseverance

(Hiringa). Through these ‘REP’

values we develop within each

student a sense of self worth

to realise their importance as

a member of our Casebrook

community.

Our school environment is one

where students are safe and

have the confidence to take risks

with their learning. In this way

the students at Casebrook are

supported and encouraged to

become self-motived, independent

learners.

We value the partnership between

home and school. Together

we can create an environment

where we foster feelings of pride

and belonging. We are sure you

will enjoy being a part of our

community and would welcome

the opportunity to meet with you

Papanui High School -

Preparing students

for their future

Giving students the opportunity to study

from an innovative and broad curriculum

is critical to providing each student a

pathway that meets their individual

needs. We allow for a greater range and

flexibility in subject choice including

the utilization of the secondary/

tertiary interface. This reinforces

the philosophy underpinning

personalised learning and

is strongly supported

by understanding our

students’ interests,

passions, talents, and

ultimately their career

aspirations.

We understand that

for effective learning

to take place, it has to

be implemented in such

a way that students will be

highly engaged. The school

does this in a ‘forward thinking’ way by

creating learning environments that

allow our students to see value in what

they do and achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is

what we represent and we demonstrate

this by having young adults leave our

school as confident learners who have

gained the appropriate qualifications

and social skills to become valued

contributing members of society.

All that we do here is reinforced by

positive relationships, an ethos of caring,

cultural responsiveness, inclusion, and

high expectations – what we call “Our

Full service Model”. The school highly

values the connectedness

of curricular and cocurricular

learning. We

have a philosophical

understanding that the

holistic development

of the student

is critical to their

individual success.

The school has worked

hard to consolidate recent

initiatives to ensure sustained

and continuous improvement. You

are invited to view our website, school

charter, ERO report, and/or contact the

school for more information.

We look forward to welcoming all

prospective students and their families/

Villa Maria College is a state integrated

Catholic secondary school for girls in

Years 7 – 13. The College was opened

by the Sisters of Mercy in 1918 and has

grown to accommodate 800 students

within its beautiful grounds. The spirit of

Mercy is the very heart of our College,

and there is an emphasis on service

to others and the community. Girls are

educated in Catholic teachings, and this

Catholic character is evident throughout

the College.

Our Mission is to: “Empower each young

woman to determine her potential, live

Gospel values, confidently embrace lifelong

learning and as a Mercy woman be

inspired to make a difference”.

The education Villa Maria College

offers is of the highest quality, and we

are proud of our excellent academic

results. Girls are encouraged to stretch

themselves and work towards individual

goals, so they fulfil their potential.

Our strong academic programme is

combined with varied co-curricular

activities, encompassing sport, cultural

and musical programmes.

Our pastoral care systems ensure that

all girls are supported throughout their

schooling. Villa Maria College is an

SENIOR LIVING

Six exercises to help Sciatica

Reclining pigeon pose

Pigeon pose is a common yoga pose. It works to open the

hips. There are multiple versions of this stretch. The first

is a starting version known as the reclining pigeon pose.

If you are just starting your treatment, you should try the

reclining pose first.

1. While on your back, bring your right leg up to a right

angle. Clasp both hands behind the thigh, locking your

fingers.

2. Lift your left leg and place your right ankle on top of the

left knee.

3. Hold the position for a moment. This helps stretch

the tiny piriformis muscle, which sometimes becomes

inflamed and presses against the sciatic nerve, causing

pain.

4. Do the same exercise with the other leg. Once you can

do the reclining version without pain, work with your

health care professional on sitting and forward versions

of pigeon pose.

sitting pigeon pose

1. Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out straight in

front of you.

2. Bend your right leg, putting your right ankle on top of

the left knee.

3. Lean forward and allow your upper body to reach

toward your thigh.

4. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds. This stretches the glutes and

lower back.

5. Repeat on the other side.

FoRwaRd pigeon pose

1. Kneel on the floor on all fours.

2. Pick up your right leg and move it forward on the

ground in front of your body. Your lower leg should be

on the ground, horizontal to the body. Your right foot

should be in front of your right knee while your right

knee stays to the right.

3. Stretch the left leg out all the way behind you on the

floor, with the top of the foot on the ground and toes

pointing back.

4. Shift your body weight gradually from your arms to

your legs so that your legs are supporting your weight.

Sit up straight with your hands on either side of your

legs.

5. Take a deep breath. While exhaling, lean your upper

body forward over your front leg. Support your weight

with your arms as much as possible.

6. Repeat on the other side.

Knee to opposite shouldeR

This simple stretch helps relieve sciatica pain by loosening

your gluteal and piriformis muscles, which can become

inflamed and press against the sciatic nerve.

1. Lie on your back with your legs extended and your feet

flexed upward.

2. Bend your right leg and clasp your hands around the

knee.

3. Gently pull your right leg across your body toward your

left shoulder. Hold it there for 30 seconds. Remember to

pull your knee only as far as it will comfortably go. You

should feel a relieving stretch in your muscle, not pain.

4. Push your knee so your leg returns to its starting

position.

5. Repeat for a total of three reps, and then switch legs.

sitting spinal stRetch

Sciatica pain is triggered when vertebrae in the spine

compress. This stretch helps create space in the spine to

relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve.

1. Sit on the ground with your legs extended straight out

with your feet flexed upward.

2. Bend your right knee and place your foot flat on the

floor on the outside of your opposite knee.

3. Place your left elbow on the outside of your right knee

to help you gently turn your body toward the right.

4. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat three times, then switch

sides.

standing hamstRing stRetch

This stretch can help ease pain and tightness in the

hamstring caused by sciatica.

1. Place your right foot on an elevated surface at or below

your hip level. This could be a chair, ottoman, or step

on a staircase. Flex your foot so your toes and leg are

straight. If your knee tends to hyperextend, keep a slight

bend in it.

2. Bend your body forward slightly toward your foot. The

further you go, the deeper the stretch. Do not push so

far that you feel pain.

3. Release the hip of your raised leg downward as opposed

to lifting it up. If you need help easing your hip down,

loop a yoga strap or long exercise band over your right

thigh and under your left foot.

4. Hold for at least 30 seconds, and then repeat on the

other side.

exeRcise with caRe

Be cautious and work with the flexibility of your body. If

you attend a class or watch YouTube videos, those people

have been practicing for a while. Don’t compare yourself

or push yourself. Flow with your body and if you have

kind of pain, you should stop. You can try again at another

time.

The village centres (coming soon to Casebrook) are the community hub of our villages,
