Proposed rehab centre takes<br />

residents’ concerns on board<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

A RESOUNDING “no” is the<br />

response of St Albans residents<br />

who submitted on whether a<br />

rehabilitation centre for violent<br />

offenders should open in the<br />

area.<br />

The city council received 173<br />

submissions against the Department<br />

of Correction’s proposed<br />

residential violence-prevention<br />

programme project at 14 Bristol<br />

St, and just 20 in favour.<br />

The responses have prompted<br />

Corrections to change to how it<br />

plans to operate the centre.<br />

Department of Corrections<br />

Canterbury district manager Jessie<br />

Middlemiss said this included<br />

reducing the maximum number<br />

of residents from 16 to 12, and<br />

increasing the maximum number<br />

of staff on site to 14.<br />

She said residents would now<br />

be phased in during the first 15<br />

months of the programme.<br />

A new gate would be installed<br />

at the main entrance and the<br />

hours when outdoor areas could<br />

be used would be limited.<br />

“We are committed to being<br />

the best neighbour we can be,<br />

and we hope that the changes<br />

we are making demonstrate our<br />

willingness to work with the<br />

community,” Middlemiss said.<br />

“If the Christchurch<br />

City Council approves our<br />

application, we will establish a<br />

community liaison group.”<br />

Many residents who lodged<br />

submissions cited safety as a<br />

concern.<br />

Submitter Philip Cooper said<br />

the proposed use of the property<br />

was unreasonable.<br />

“[It is] unsafe for all residents,<br />

especially children and the<br />

elderly,” he said.<br />

Submitter Melissa Warrington<br />

said her two children regularly<br />

walked or scootered to school and<br />

to sports activities in the area.<br />

“Should this application be approved,<br />

I will be fearful for them<br />

to continue to do so in case they<br />

encounter one of the residents or<br />

their associates [or] visitors.”<br />

Submitter Chris Rennie said<br />

rehabilitation measures were<br />

REHAB CENTRE:<br />

Bristol St may<br />

become the site<br />

of a residential<br />

programme for<br />

the Department of<br />

Corrections.<br />

important, but often ineffective.<br />

Rennie compared them to the<br />

prison meetings he used to run.<br />

“A residential area is not the<br />

place to be housing these violent<br />

offenders who can just walk out<br />

the door at any time.”<br />

Chance to guide visitors around<br />

gardens a privilege for volunteer<br />

VOLUNTEERING AT the<br />

Botanic Gardens has been a<br />

chance to branch out for Susan<br />

Lawrence.<br />

The Bryndwr 72-year-old<br />

began guiding visitors at the<br />

gardens in 2012.<br />

Volunteer guides – all<br />

members of the Friends of the<br />

Botanic Gardens – run free<br />

walks in different parts of the<br />

Botanic Gardens each day<br />

between October and April.<br />

“I find being a volunteer<br />

guide incredibly rewarding,’’<br />

said Susan.<br />

“It has provided me with an<br />

opportunity to learn and grow<br />

in my knowledge of plants. I<br />

cringe sometimes when I think<br />

of how little I knew at the start.’’<br />

She led two or three walks a<br />

month, co-ordinated the team of<br />

volunteer guides, and served on<br />

the committee of the Friends of<br />

the Botanic Gardens.<br />

“Being part of a team<br />

is fulfilling – we are very<br />

supportive of one another and<br />

each one brings his or her own<br />

skills to the task, and we learn<br />

from each other.”<br />

“Having the opportunity<br />

to share our knowledge and<br />

Andrew Hawkey<br />

(BHS Podiatry)<br />

stories with the public is a great<br />

privilege, whether they are<br />

locals or tourists.<br />

“Locals are often surprised at<br />

how much of the gardens they<br />

are unfamiliar with.”<br />

Mrs Lawrence says engaging<br />

with the public on the tours<br />

is a two-way experience and<br />

the guides often come away<br />

having learned a thing or two<br />

themselves.<br />

“Above all it is a great<br />

privilege to give out to others<br />

– our lives are enriched in the<br />

process.’’<br />

She estimated she spent about<br />

30 hours a month working on a<br />

voluntary basis for the Friends<br />

of the Botanic Gardens, which<br />

exist to support and promote the<br />

work of the gardens.<br />

Grants for<br />

community<br />

groups approved<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

A GRANT of $8698 to the Styx<br />

Living Laboratory Trust was<br />

approved by the Papanui-Innes<br />

Community Board at a meeting<br />

last week.<br />

THis was more than the<br />

recommendation of $7556 set<br />

before the meeting was held.<br />

The trust aims to promote education<br />

and research around the Styx<br />

River catchment.<br />

Board member Pauline Cotter<br />

proposed the increase.<br />

“They’re growing, they’re doing<br />

such a fantastic job and I’m really<br />

passionate about our biodiversity. I<br />

don’t think we’ve had a big enough<br />

lens on that over the council.”<br />

Funds would go towards the<br />

trust’s work programme, its education<br />

programme and development<br />

of a talking circle.<br />

The board also approved $8000<br />

to the Papanui Redwood Association<br />

Football Club towards the<br />

installation of floodlights in Owen<br />

Mitchell Park.<br />

A third grant of $2000 to the<br />

Belfast Netball Club was also approved,<br />

which would help with the<br />

club’s court hire costs and pay for<br />

new balls.<br />

Money for the grants would<br />

Former Olympian still has the competitive spirit<br />

THE OLYMPIC spirit still shines<br />

brightly with John Abrams.<br />

John, a New Zealand hockey<br />

team member from the 1956<br />

Melbourne and 1960 Rome<br />

Olympic Games, remembers<br />

close matches and physical<br />

tussles, as the team played its<br />

heart out from the get-go.<br />

John and New Zealand team<br />

made their Olympic debuts in<br />

Melbourne.<br />

He recalls the Australian adventures,<br />

as he sits alongside his<br />

wife Dawn – both residents of<br />

Diana Isaac Retirement Village<br />

in Mairehau.<br />

Now, John is looking forward<br />

to his next Olympics adventure.<br />

Ryman Healthcare is bringing<br />

together 12,500 residents across<br />

41 villages in New Zealand and<br />

Australia to compete in the<br />

world’s first international retirement<br />

village Olympic Games.<br />

The residents will be competing<br />

in cycling, swimming, bowls,<br />

a 21.6km team walking relay and<br />

Quiznastics (gymnastics for the<br />

brain).<br />

Back in 1956, John and other<br />

Kiwi games athletes were invited,<br />

and went, to social events hosted<br />

by gracious Melburnians.<br />

“Even if you were wandering<br />

around outside the village, a car<br />

would pull up and they would<br />

say: ‘Hey you guys, we’re having<br />

MEMORIES: John Abrams, who played at right fullback in<br />

Canterbury and New Zealand hockey teams.<br />

a barbie tonight, would you like<br />

to join us?’ ” John said.<br />

Times at the games were different<br />

back then, and security settings<br />

were much lower. In 1960<br />

John was able to watch, trackside,<br />

the performance of Kiwi<br />

medal winners including Barry<br />

Magee, Peter Snell and Murray<br />

Halberg.<br />

As well as these memories,<br />

John and Dawn have plenty of<br />

Olympic memorabilia on their<br />

walls in their independent apartment<br />

at the village.<br />

John’s historic collection<br />

includes photos, an Olympic<br />

tie and an Olympic blazer from<br />

Rome.<br />

The items date back to the<br />

games and more recently to<br />

get-togethers. As Olympians he<br />

and others were honoured by the<br />

Christchurch High School Old<br />

Boys with names inscribed on<br />

a sports shirt. His shirt is now<br />

framed and mounted on the<br />

wall.<br />

Both Woolston Primary<br />

School, CBHS and later<br />

Woolston Hockey Club were<br />

proving grounds for John and<br />

others. His schoolmates Noel<br />

Hobson and Ross Gillespie (who<br />

later coached the Kiwi 1976 gold<br />

medal-winning team) played<br />

together in 1960.<br />

Provincial and national representation<br />

followed, then John<br />

says that he and his family had to<br />

listen to a 6pm radio broadcast<br />

to find if he was included in the<br />

team for Melbourne.<br />

The departure for Melbourne<br />

was quite a ruckus. His father,<br />

Dawn and young daughter,<br />

Nicola, saw him off only to<br />

discover the car keys (to get<br />

home) were in John’s pocket and<br />

on the plane. They were eventually<br />

tossed down by the pilot to<br />

ground level before the aircraft<br />

took off.<br />

In Melbourne the team finished<br />

in sixth place just behind<br />

Australia.<br />

The Rome Games were longhaul<br />

in terms of travel, with the<br />

hockey players ending in fifth<br />

place this time after beating Australia<br />

in the final match.<br />

John says the team were very<br />

close to contending for a medal,<br />

but lost 1-0 in a thrilling quarterfinal<br />

against Spain. The score<br />

could have been reversed; he<br />

says.<br />

“We had a penalty corner and<br />

the ball was definitely going into<br />

the net, and it hit one of their<br />

defenders in the jaw and went<br />

out,” John said.<br />

“A few minutes after that, they<br />

scored, and then it was fulltime.”<br />

The team was consigned to<br />

the sidelines. “(But) one of the<br />

marvellous things, then and in<br />

Rome, the competitors had a reserve<br />

stand at the main stadium,”<br />

John said.<br />

John got to sit beside athletics<br />

coach Arthur Lydiard in the<br />

Rome stadium to see the arrival<br />

of the marathon athletes including<br />

Barry Magee (now a Ryman<br />

resident at Murray Halberg) who<br />

finished with a bronze medal.<br />

“It was a fabulous effort,” he<br />

said.<br />

In Rome, he watched Peter<br />

Snell and Murray Halberg’s gold<br />

medal performances.<br />

Snell, in fact, spent a lot of<br />

time at the dining table with<br />

the hockey team, knowing well<br />

the Auckland team members<br />

having played hockey against<br />

them.<br />

Years later John, a trained<br />

lifesaver, found Snell cramping<br />

in the water at Tahunanui Beach<br />

near Nelson. He pulled him to<br />

safety, with Snell forever grateful.<br />

Both John and Dawn are<br />

looking forward to the Tokyo<br />

summer Olympics and Ryman’s<br />

version of the games.

New home for<br />

native butterflies<br />

McMaster & Heap<br />

Veterinary practice<br />

• Fiona Ellis<br />

CANTERBURY’S own native boulder<br />

copper butterfly will soon have a new<br />

home at Orana Wildlife Park.<br />

The Burnside Primary School pupils<br />

behind the project braved the wintery<br />

weather to plant 150 Muehlenbeckia<br />

axillaris shrubs at the park last week.<br />

Teacher Bianca Woyak said the shrub<br />

was the butterfly larvae’s only food source.<br />

“They’ll be moving in about October,<br />

we’re just waiting for the plants to settle,”<br />

she said.<br />

It was a great day of hands-on learning,<br />

Woyak said.<br />

“The weather wasn’t the best, but it was<br />

good for digging and planting.”<br />

The boulder copper butterfly was<br />

reintroduced to Christchurch by Burnside<br />

pupils in February, after a 200-year<br />

absence from the city.<br />

Because the pupils had already built the<br />

butterflies a habitat on the school grounds,<br />

they knew what to look for when scouting<br />

a new location for the insects to live,<br />

Woyak said.<br />

“Boulder coppers need an area with no<br />

shade . . . and dry, so nowhere too lowlying.”<br />

The butterflies from the initial<br />

translocation had laid eggs, and these<br />

offspring would be the ones to inhabit the<br />

park, she said.<br />

School pupils (from left) Cairo<br />

Campana plant Muehlenbeckia<br />

axillaris at Orana Wildlife Park<br />

last week.<br />

At just two or three centimetres wide,<br />

the butterflies were small and their eggs<br />

were nearly impossible to see.<br />

This added an element of suspense to the<br />

project.<br />

“We’re waiting with bated breath to see<br />

if we have butterflies in October.”<br />

LIPOMAS<br />

A Lipoma is a benign mesenchymal<br />

tumour comprised of “mature adipocytes”<br />

(namely fat cells). Lipomas are very<br />

common in the dog, rarely in the cat.<br />

Believe it or not I have several small<br />

lipomas on my arms that cause no issue.<br />

They are often picked up in a routine visit,<br />

are non-painful, soft, moveable and slow<br />

growing. Breeds at risk are the Labrador,<br />

Retriever, Doberman, Spaniel and Beagle.<br />

No one knows why they pop up and they<br />

are classified into three groups –<br />

• Simple lipoma – a benign, slow growing<br />

mass that expands rather than invades.<br />

They can get really huge. They are usually<br />

encapsulated and easy to surgically shell<br />

out. They are most commonly seen within<br />

the fat tissue on the trunk and limbs. Very<br />

occasionally they can be found in the<br />

chest and abdomen. Depending on where<br />

they are they can impede movement<br />

causing abnormal gaits and neurological<br />

deficits may be noticed.<br />

• Infiltrative lipoma – These are locally<br />

aggressive, invasive and can disrupt the<br />

surrounding tissues. These have been<br />

known to cause spinal cord compression.<br />

• Myelolipoma – These are benign and can<br />

commonly occur on the spleen, adrenal<br />

glands and liver. We rarely see these.<br />

Diagnosis is made by fine needle<br />

aspiration cytology, radiographs and<br />

ultrasound (especially of lipomas in the<br />

thorax and abdomen or those inbetween<br />

muscle planes). Cytology of the mass can<br />

be done while you wait.<br />

Most lipomas require NO specific therapy.<br />

We usually only suggest surgical removal<br />

if they are impeding motion or function or<br />

in an area that irritates the dog. Surgery is<br />

usually straight forward and it helps having<br />

cautery for the large tumour removals as<br />

they have a decent blood supply. Often<br />

suction drains are inserted due to all the<br />

dead space left and blood tends to want<br />

to pool there. Complications of surgery<br />

can be delayed wound healing, seromas<br />

forming or occasionally nerve damage if<br />

the lipoma is deep.<br />

Recently we had a referral to give our<br />

opinion on lipoma surgery for a 12 year<br />

old Labrador called “Tess”. She’s had a<br />

multitude of lipomas (diagnosed via<br />

cytology) for years but some have started<br />

growing quickly, causing her severe<br />

mobility issues. Kirsty initially saw Tess<br />

and thought she could make a difference<br />

surgically to her quality of life and mobility.<br />

One large lipoma had extended down the<br />

right side of her chest and into her axilla<br />

(armpit), impinging on nerves affecting<br />

limb placement. She kept throwing this leg<br />

outward.<br />

Tess was a trouper under her anaesthetic<br />

and has recovered well. The surgery took<br />

nearly two hours and required lots of<br />

sutures and drains to close large wounds.<br />

Six lipoma masses were removed, the<br />

largest weighing in at 1.6kg. She should<br />

hopefully find it easier to walk now. Tess<br />

was discharged on good pain medications,<br />

weight loss diet and a recommendation<br />

for Physio to help her mobilise quicker and<br />

improve muscle strength. She was a gentle<br />

old soul to treat and we hope we have<br />

made a difference to her quality of life.<br />

Proposed rehab centre<br />

encounters resistance<br />

in St Albans<br />

• From page 1<br />

The minority who submitted in favour<br />

of the application believed in the benefits<br />

of the programme.<br />

Submitter Victoria Wilby said she<br />

was satisfied with the safety measures<br />

proposed.<br />

“I believe in non-punitive programmes<br />

when possible, especially when they<br />

retain the dignity and mana of those<br />

participating,” she said.<br />

Linwood-Central-<br />

Heathcote Community<br />

Board chairwoman Alexandra<br />

Davids said she<br />

was not surprised by<br />

the amount of negative<br />

feedback.<br />

“With that much<br />

Alexandra<br />

Davids<br />

feedback from a negative<br />

standpoint, people in the<br />

area should be listened to,”<br />

she said.<br />

However, she hoped people would keep<br />

an open mind towards the project, which<br />

aimed to help offenders move forward<br />

with their lives.<br />

“If not there, where are you putting<br />

it? There’s not going to be a community<br />

anywhere that would fully support it.”<br />

Christchurch Central MP Duncan<br />

Webb said community feedback and<br />

expert advice were both important.<br />

Corrections would need to prove the<br />

facility could operate<br />

safely, he said.<br />

“There is a robust<br />

process for assessing applications<br />

to operate such<br />

a facility and I have confidence<br />

in this process.<br />

Duncan<br />

Webb<br />

“I am aware of similar<br />

facilities being successfully<br />

run both close by in<br />

Christchurch and in other<br />

cities.<br />

“I absolutely support the safe reintegration<br />

of offenders back into the community.”<br />

Central Ward city councillor Jake<br />

McLellan said it was a good thing so<br />

many people had given feedback.<br />

“The number of submitters highlights<br />

how important it is that Corrections get it<br />

right,” McLellan said.<br />

A date for the submissions hearing had<br />

not been set, but it was likely to take place<br />

in August, a city council spokesperson<br />

said.<br />

• HAVE YOUR SAY: What are your<br />

Lawn bowls a new<br />

experience for pupils<br />

A GROUP of year five<br />

pupils from Northcote<br />

School visited Summerset<br />

on Cavendish Retirement<br />

Village for an introduction<br />

to lawn bowls.<br />

The recent field trip<br />

was part of the Kiwi Can<br />

programme run at the<br />

school.<br />

Kiwi Can facilitator<br />

Hayley Young said the<br />

opportunity for the 16<br />

pupils to engage with<br />

village residents through<br />

learning new activities<br />

was an extremely positive<br />

experience.<br />

“The kids and I loved it,”<br />

she said.<br />

“Thank you so much<br />

Summerset Village for<br />

warmly welcoming us.<br />

It was a very successful<br />

and engaging community<br />

project.”<br />

The programme,<br />

facilitated by the Graeme<br />

Dingle Foundation, had<br />

a focus on values, such as<br />

integrity and respect.<br />

Along with the Kiwi<br />

Can facilitators, the pupils<br />

walked to the retirement<br />

Intermediate Schools<br />

specialists in Year 7<br />

and Year 8 education<br />

Intermediate Schools are exciting places<br />

for students to begin their adventure into<br />

adolescence!<br />

Intermediate aged children are changing<br />

rapidly – physically, emotionally and<br />

socially. Intermediate schools focus solely<br />

on this age group and are well positioned to<br />

meet their needs.<br />

Intermediates provide a rich, age and<br />

stage, middle-years specific curriculum in<br />

a stimulating, challenging and rewarding<br />

environment, and cater for many interest<br />

groups and clubs.<br />

Intermediate teachers are focussed<br />

solely on the middle years. They work<br />

collaboratively to provide level-appropriate<br />

engaging programmes that connect learning<br />

to students’ lives and interests and provide<br />

challenges for all students to achieve to the<br />

best of their ability.<br />

Intermediate Schools have a mix of<br />

specialist and home room teachers which<br />

enhance the choices, challenge, practical<br />

activities and academic rigour that can be<br />

provided.<br />

Intermediates plan and resource deliberately<br />

to meet early adolescent student needs,<br />

help build self esteem, assist students to<br />

develop and find strengths and link learning<br />

with career aspirations.<br />

An intermediate school can support your<br />

child by providing:<br />

• Opportunities to excel and thrive right<br />

across the curriculum both in and out of<br />

the classroom<br />

• Broad enrichment and extension<br />

opportunities<br />

• Opportunities to develop leadership<br />

skills<br />

• Carefully tailored wellbeing programmes<br />

and learning support<br />

• Teachers who understand and have an<br />

affinity for this age and stage<br />

• Structured and safe learning<br />

environments that focus on relationships,<br />

emotional and academic development.<br />

• Technology and specialist programmes<br />

that are hands-on and designed to<br />

encourage creativity and curiosity.<br />

• Schools that are resourced and<br />

designed to meet the needs of this age<br />

group with age appropriate experiences,<br />

opportunities and challenges.<br />

• Challenging extra-curricular experiences<br />

The intermediate schools and principals<br />

in Christchurch work closely together<br />

to collectively provide a wide range of<br />

extracurricular opportunities for students<br />

in sporting, cultural and academic<br />

contexts.<br />

Vaccinations for<br />

the rest of Aotearoa<br />

New Zealand<br />

The COVID-19 vaccination rollout for the general population<br />

starts from the end of July.<br />

Our COVID-19 vaccination programme has built momentum<br />

steadily since February. We are vaccinating around 100,000<br />

people a week at the moment. In the second half of the year<br />

we hit top speed and everyone in New Zealand aged 16 and<br />

over will be able to be vaccinated.<br />

Moving to the general population<br />

So far, vaccinations have been made available to those most at<br />

risk of getting COVID-19 to limit the chances of it getting into the<br />

wider population.<br />

With more vaccine supply coming on, and having ramped up our<br />

infrastructure, vaccinations for everyone else in New Zealand<br />

aged 16 and over (the general population) start from 28 July.<br />

This is a very large group of people. To make this flow smoothly,<br />

we will break this down by age bands.<br />

All people aged 60 plus can book their vaccinations from 28 July.<br />

Then, two weeks later, people who are 55 plus. From there, new<br />

age bands will be opened up every 2–3 weeks based on confirmed<br />

deliveries of the vaccine and the speed of rollout to earlier groups.<br />

By mid to late August, invitations should be open for people over<br />

45. By mid to late September, invitations should be open for those<br />

over 35, with everyone else being eligible from October.<br />

Invitations<br />

Most people will get a direct invitation to book – either by email,<br />

text, phone call or in the post. You will then be able to book through<br />

Book My Vaccine, a new national booking system that will be online<br />

from 28 July, or phone a new national call centre. Availability of<br />

booking slots (the date, time and place you can be vaccinated)<br />

will vary between district health board (DHB) regions.<br />

Once you are eligible to be vaccinated, you can be vaccinated<br />

at any time. There is no cut off.<br />

Registration<br />

Even if your age band isn’t open, everyone aged 16 and over will<br />

be able to go to Book My Vaccine to register for an invitation from<br />

28 July. Registration means we will be certain to have your correct<br />

contact details and when your age group is opened, you will get an<br />

invitation telling you it’s your turn to book.<br />

Getting a vaccination<br />

Step 1<br />

Step 2<br />

Step 3<br />

Receiving an invitation<br />

We’ll call or send you an email, text or letter to invite<br />

you to book.<br />

Make your booking<br />

From 28 July, go to Book My Vaccine or call the new<br />

national call centre to book both doses, or to register<br />

if your age band isn’t open yet.<br />

Get your vaccination<br />

Have your first vaccination dose.<br />

3–6 weeks later have your second vaccination dose.<br />

If you don’t hear from us, or are concerned, you can register<br />

for your vaccination through the new national Book My Vaccine<br />

booking system at any time from 28 July.<br />

Important dates<br />

28 July People 60+ Vaccinations open<br />

11 August People 55+ Vaccinations open<br />

Mid to late Aug People 45 + Invitations should open<br />

Mid to late Sept People 35+ Invitations should open<br />

October People 16+ Invitations should open<br />

Other ways to get vaccinated<br />

As we go through the year there will be other ways for people<br />

to be vaccinated. These will include workplace vaccinations and<br />

other targeted vaccination events across the country. For some<br />

remote rural communities we will vaccinate all age groups at the<br />

same time to make it easier for them. Our successful whānaucentred<br />

approach to vaccinations will continue for Māori and<br />

Pacific communities and those with disabilities.<br />

TIM WRAIGHT New Wood For Old Iron<br />

Exhibition at Little River Gallery 26 <strong>June</strong> – 27 July<br />

Tim Wraight is a musician and artist from<br />

Marahau. He works primarily in carved wood,<br />

a medium he has loved since childhood. As a<br />

child he was surrounded by works created by his<br />

great-great-grandfather John Henry Menzies of<br />

Menzies Bay on Banks Peninsula.<br />

In 1990 he was offered the opportunity to train<br />

with traditional Maori master woodcarver John<br />

Mutu, who he worked with for the rest of that<br />

decade. He still works for iwi in the Nelson/<br />

Golden Bay region making traditional works for<br />

their marae and public art installations.<br />

This has influenced the way he<br />

works since, and although his<br />

personal art practice has<br />

moved away from<br />

the traditional, the<br />

methods and way of<br />

making reflects this<br />

background.<br />

The works for this<br />

show “New Wood<br />

for Old Iron” at Little<br />

River Gallery take old<br />

iron and steel tools<br />

and gift them new<br />

intricately carved and<br />

decorated handles. This is his way of honouring<br />

the role these hand tools have shaped our places<br />

and environments in the past, when hard work<br />

with simple but effective tools made our places<br />

and grew our food. It is also a rejection of the<br />

ease with which we now alter our landscapes<br />

with massively powerful machinery and the<br />

damage we can so easily inflict on our fragile<br />

environment.<br />

Tim learnt to use these types<br />

of tools from his grandfather,<br />

an old-time farmer who also<br />

lovingly crafted wonderful<br />

handles for his tools. This<br />

show also honours those who<br />

worked with muscle power<br />

and honed skills to do what<br />

was needed with these tools<br />

to sustain their lives.<br />
