BIG TURNOUT: An estimated<br />

<strong>15</strong>,000 people attended the<br />

festival in Thomson Park.<br />

FAERIE FUN: The Christchurch Faerie Circle face painting was a popular attraction<br />

at the 13th annual I Love Brighton festival.<br />

• By Geoff Sloan<br />

AN ESTIMATED crowd of<br />

up to <strong>15</strong>,000 descended on<br />

Thomson Park for the 13th<br />

annual ‘I Love Brighton’<br />

festival.<br />

Event co-organiser Martha<br />

Baxendell said the free festival<br />

was a great way to start the<br />

year.<br />

“This is a family<br />

friendly event that we<br />

put on every year with<br />

activities for children, a<br />

little market area, we’ve got<br />

entertainment happening.<br />

I mean, just a fun day for<br />

everyone.”<br />

Community groups<br />

and sports clubs took the<br />

opportunity to showcase their<br />

offerings, keen to recruit new<br />

members by running games<br />

and activities.<br />

The event began after the<br />

Christchurch earthquakes as<br />

a way of lifting the spirits of<br />

the New Brighton community<br />

and encouraging locals to reengage<br />

in activities.<br />

STREETSCAPE renewal work<br />

about to start in Linwood<br />

Village has been designed<br />

to create a safer and more<br />

welcoming environment.<br />

The package of works includes<br />

wider footpaths, dedicated cycle<br />

lanes, more trees, better lighting<br />

and improved landscaping.<br />

Said the city council’s planning<br />

and delivery transport<br />

manager Jacob Bradbury: “We’re<br />

aiming to make this section<br />

of Stanmore Rd more peoplefriendly<br />

and pleasant for those<br />

who visit the shops and amenities<br />

in the area.<br />

“We’re also focusing on improving<br />

safety for pedestrians<br />

and road users with new bus<br />

stops and bus parking bays, safe<br />

speed platforms at the roundabouts,<br />

footpath resurfacing and<br />

tactile pavers.”<br />

Work began on Monday and<br />

is set to take until mid-March<br />

to complete, with the rest of the<br />

project expected to be wrapped<br />

up by June.<br />

On-street parking on both<br />

sides of the street will be affected<br />

during this time. However,<br />

pedestrians will still be able to<br />

access businesses in the area.<br />

“We’ll need to install temporary<br />

stop-go traffic lights while<br />

we complete this work, with a<br />

one-way system in place between<br />

Worcester St and Hereford St for<br />

the duration,” said Bradbury.<br />

“There will be no left turn<br />

onto Stanmore Rd for those<br />

travelling east on Hereford St,<br />

and for those travelling west<br />

on Hereford St there will be no<br />

right turn onto Stanmore Rd.”<br />

Dancer stepping up to world champs<br />

• By Sasha Watson<br />

LUKE STREET is going to<br />

jig, step and kick his way onto<br />

the stage at the World Irish<br />

Dancing Championships, held<br />

in Glasgow, Scotland, in late<br />

March.<br />

Luke has been training four<br />

times per week with his instructors,<br />

Shannon Dilger and Argene<br />

Flack, at the Southern Cross<br />

Irish Dance School’s new facility<br />

in Phillipstown, and will go to<br />

the championships alongside<br />

fellow dance student, 11-year-old<br />

Cameron Murray.<br />

It will be the Hillmorton<br />

High School year 11 student’s<br />

second time competing at the<br />

world championships, having<br />

competed in Montreal, Canada<br />

last year.<br />

“Being there will be a good<br />

experience, I’ve never been to<br />

Scotland before. While I’d like to<br />

place higher than I did last year,<br />

which was 42nd, getting into the<br />

top 50 per cent would be awesome,”<br />

said the <strong>15</strong>-year-old, who<br />

is from Hoon Hay.<br />

However, travelling to and<br />

from the competition, staying<br />

in accommodation and the cost<br />

of airfares will be expensive –<br />

upwards of $<strong>15</strong>,000.<br />

Luke’s mother Kendra Street<br />

said: “If anyone is keen to donate<br />

and help, that would be amazing.<br />

We have already paid for entry<br />

into the competition, our airfares<br />

HIGH KICKS: Luke Street has been learning Irish dancing<br />

at the Southern Cross Irish Dance school for about five<br />

years and has competed regularly for about two.<br />

are on the credit card and we are<br />

awaiting the council’s response<br />

to Luke’s Youth Development<br />

funding application.<br />

“Finding funding is quite hard<br />

due to him being <strong>15</strong> years old.<br />

Most of the funding requires applicants<br />

to be 16 and older.<br />

“With every . . . donation,<br />

yours or your business name<br />

will be printed onto an ‘I have<br />

your back’ t-shirt, which Luke<br />

STRAIGHT LEGS: Luke<br />

placed 42nd overall in his<br />

first international world<br />

championship last year<br />

held at Montreal, Canada.<br />

will wear out and about to say<br />

thank you to his supporters and<br />

sponsors.”<br />

Luke qualified at the 2023 New<br />

Zealand Irish Dancing national<br />

championships, held at Burnside<br />

High School, having won all<br />

three of his dances for the overall<br />

title and gaining a perfect score<br />

of 300 in the U<strong>15</strong>s age group.<br />

He has been dancing for about<br />

five years at the Southern Cross<br />

Irish Dance School and has<br />

competed regularly for about<br />

two years. Said Street: “We first<br />

went to a boys-only class before<br />

he joined. Luke thought this was<br />

quite a unique and fun dance<br />

and he had rhythm and could<br />

learn the steps. He loves it, when<br />

he first started, he would just<br />

keep dancing all the time.’’<br />

Luke will be competing in<br />

the soft-shoe and hard-shoe<br />

<strong>15</strong>-16-year-old boys categories at<br />

the championship, where, if he<br />

places in the top 50 per per cent,<br />

he will then be eligible to compete<br />

in the set dance category.<br />

There will be a panel of five<br />

adjudicators to judge and score<br />

each dance out of 100 points in<br />

aspects including rhythm and<br />

musicality, turn and crossover,<br />

elevation, speed, power, posture,<br />

carriage and presence.<br />

The overall result is based on<br />

the total points a dancer received<br />

from their three dances.<br />

“Luke has pulled up his socks<br />

in terms of training and his<br />

presentation during the dances.<br />

It was good for him, in his first<br />

world championships last year,<br />

to see the standard of dancing<br />

from all of the other boys, and<br />

learn what he needs to do,” said<br />

Street.<br />

“We wanted to create something that<br />

helped bring our community together,<br />

just show that unity and also to encourage<br />

our tamariki to see what they could get<br />

involved in.”<br />

Baxendell was delighted with the great<br />

community support for the event held on<br />

Tuesday last week. The key sponsors were<br />

the Home Foundation, Tangata Atumotu<br />

Trust and the Waitai Coastal-Burwood-<br />

Linwood Community Board, which<br />

allowed all the activities to be free.<br />

for the seaside suburb over the next year,<br />

Boasting top-of-the-line appliances, it provides stunning views whilst you prepare meals or enjoy that<br />

morning coffee. The kitchen seamlessly transitions into an open-plan dining area and a spacious balcony,<br />

ideal for hosting large gatherings. Revel in unparalleled alfresco hosting as you witness the sunset over the<br />

native oceanfront dunes leading to the waves.<br />

Designed to maximize natural light, the contemporary residence emanates a bright and airy ambiance whilst<br />

to cultivate a welcoming atmosphere.<br />

Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac on a generous 901sqm site, this beachfront abode offers multiple<br />
