The first day of the rest of our lives

Hello everyone,

Wishing you all a very happy 2017!

Update on Manukau Re-development Project:
The NZ Strong team arrived on Monday and have started on the preparation work for the project.

Week 1: 4 – 7 contractors have started putting up the fencing around the building. The temporary pathways to the side of Harbour, and linking the back pathway from Seabreeze to Bayview are being installed. Contractor facilities (office space, toilet and staff room) will be delivered and utilities linked up. Tree works are underway, trimming in front of Harbour building, clearing the area to be used as the new garaging (south side of Manukau) and on the knoll.

The back gates to the village are now only able to be operated using your remote. Our Project Manager is currently holding further discussions with Auckland Council regarding access and exit for construction vehicles, and for the short term, we will see vehicles using the main entrance on Avonleigh Road. As soon as I am able, I will confirm the longer term plan for vehicle entry and exit.

Please be aware that the new pathways are raised. We are discussing highlighted edges with the contractors to ensure safety.

Week 2: Scaffolding will be erected and the building wrapped. The internal soft stripping will begin. Some light contractor traffic may use the road between Bayview and Seabreeze to deliver materials to the work site. On Monday 16 January, the scaffolding will be delivered and dropped off at to the loading bay at the back of the kitchen. It will be moved throughout the week as the scaffolding is erected. There should be no change to resident / visitor parking in this area during this time.

I will be meeting with the NZ Strong team on a fortnightly basis as we work through this project, and will give you all an update every two weeks via the Press following our meetings. As always, if you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Update on the Exterior Pool Complex Renovation:
This project is now underway. The timeframe for completion is 3 – 4 weeks at this stage. The contractors will be working 8am – 5pm Monday to Friday. Please ensure you adhere to all notices and instructions regarding access to the complex, as we may have to close either the front or back doors at differing times during this project. Children and guests must be supervised at all times if using the pool and spa pools.

Update on the New Croquet Green:
This is still planned to begin on 7 February, and I will send out further details as the plan of works is confirmed with the contractors.

Update on Basement Garage Road Markings:
Neil and the team will be organising basement cleans during February, ready for the contractors to refresh all the road markings in the basement garages. We will be in touch the date of your garage clean in the near future.

Update on Remedial Work to the disabled toilet Ground Floor Seabreeze.
This project will commence next Monday 16 January, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience, there is a disabled bathroom located level 1 Seabreeze.

Resident Request:
As per the Village Guidelines for residents, please do not feed ducks or birds, as this can cause problems for your neighbours.

This month, we welcome 2 new members of staff. Chris Kauie has joined our Maintenance team on a 6 month fixed term contract, and Orit Hume has taken up her position as our New Food Services Manager. Please do say hello as you meet our new members of the team.

On 18 January, starting at 10.30am in Seabreeze Lounge, we have organised an information session with “SocialSeniors”, about assistance they can provide for lots of IT aspects…smart phones, tablets, social media training. Full details are on the notice boards, and if you’d like to find out more, please come along. If you would like to find out more before our session, Rosie’s details are below.

Official Notices


New signage is in place at the cliff between Cliffview and The Point, there is strictly no access to these area’s other than authorised personnel.

The Garden team have continued to transplant and relocate plants and shrubs from the Manukau apartment area. As a result of their diligent efforts a great deal of success has been achieved in view of the fact that it is completely the wrong time of year to be undertaking this task. Numerous rescued plants have been placed in storage for planting about the village in due course. Ken is also extremely busy with irrigation repairs and dealing with irrigation issues around the Manukau development. Please continue to report any faults to the system so they can be repaired. The Garden team also wish to remind residents that the organic garden waste collections are on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Generally collections are undertaken in the afternoon of these days. If for any reason a day is missed due to workload or other duties, the waste will be collected the following day. Midge is helping out in the gardens around the village for a while. The team have made a terrific effort to maintain the vast facility that Pinesong is and have achieved great results over the Christmas New Year period. Well done Team.
Evan Rudolph

Pinesong residents must be aware that Guests to the village must be accompanied by a resident if using the pool. All the pool rules must be adhered to by them. There have been reports of unaccompanied resident guests using the pool recently.

The variety of masks on show added to the fun of the evening and thank-you all for providing the magnificent supper.
Deryck made the evening swing with his amazing collection of music and technical expertise……many, many thanks for that. And thanks to our MC Mike Barber who also presented us with an unforgettable “Music of the Night”.

Also a big thank-you to Nola and Marion and their team of helpers who manned the bar in their usual willing way.
To all the stalwarts who remained until midnight…..well done….. We think it was worth it!
We wish you all a healthy and safe New Year.

The Kumfs Singles Competition was won by Val Eade. She has been in the finals many times but over 14 years of playing so well she has not got her name on any trophy. She won in a tight match against Ken Jarvis that went to a play-off. On Monday the prizes were awarded by Keith Burge at our end-of-year afternoon tea. He is the original donor of the trophy.
There will be a break in competition over the Christmas period and in the New Year the entry sheet for the Triples will be up on the notice board.

The Pinesongsters reconvene for regular Tuesday practices in the Matai Room on 7 February to start promptly at 3.15pm. We would be delighted to welcome new members to our village choir. There is no audition and never having sung in a choir is sometimes an advantage. Making music together is fun and has many benefits. It is an opportunity to meet new friends.
The Pinesongsters have been an integral part of village life since the first residents moved into Pinesong. We are one of the few groups that visit venues outside the village to bring pleasure to others, through concerts and other forms of entertainment. We visit other retirement villages, often to foster the development of a choir there. We are frequently invited to preform to clubs and societies around Auckland. Our own concerts draw audiences from a wide community of enthusiasts.
As a start to the New Year we will be hosting a “BRING A FRIEND LUNCHEON” in the Bayview Lounge on Saturday 4 February; we gather some time before midday. There is no charge and lunch is provided. If you and interested in possibly joining us on Tuesday afternoons or even just coming along to see what we do, contact one of the choir members or give me a ring.

Good morning everyone. I hope you are all having a good week and are looking forward to the festive season which is drawing ever closer.
The final of our Senior Singles was finally played last Friday after being postponed three times on the Thursday due to incessant drizzle throughout the day. The final did not start off well for me as Terry Adolph scored a one and then a three in the first two ends. Then fortunately I scored a four on the next end to even up the scores and after two more ends the scores were tied at 5 all. Then thanks to a couple of very unlucky near misses by Terry the score eased out to 15-6 in my favour which proved to be beyond Terry with only two ends to play. The final score was not a true reflection of the closeness of the game.
Last Saturday was to be our Christmas Tournament but the incessant drizzle from the Thursday which had postponed the Singles final, returned early on Saturday morning which caused several members deciding not to play bowls, thus resulting in me making the decision to abandon the tournament. The decision was not a good one as the rain disappeared for the entire duration of the time allowed to play. The 26 bowlers who braved the inclement weather played a normal day’s bowls and the prizes purchased for the tournament were added to the raffle draws. I am pleased to say that the sale of raffle tickets at the Happy Hour covered the overall costs for the day. Following the bowls, members who played, were joined by those who decided against playing as well as partners in Seabreeze Lounge for a Happy Hour followed by lunch which appeared to be enjoyed by all present. The events of Saturday brought down the curtain on a very successful 2016 season highlighted by the regaining of the Metlifecare Trophy from Hillsborough Heights Village. We will defend the trophy in March/April next year here at Pinesong.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dave Annan, John Horder and Bill Mules for assisting in organizing the bowls on the several days throughout the year that I have not been able to be present due to other commitments and to Val Eade, Mary Cole and Elva Coulston for organising the social events we have held during the year.
As this will be my final article for 2016 I would like to wish all fellow bowlers, residents, members of staff and your respective families a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year and I look forward to being in touch with you all again in 2017.
John Crow, Convener

TAI CHI – Ease stress and relax
I notice our numbers have gone down considerably, so if there is anyone new who wishes to try Tai Chi, come along and join us with our Master, Quintin Derham, who is a ninth Black Belt.
First class is free. Tai Chi is so good for balance and breathing correctly and is all done slowly.
Pinesong was the first retirement village in Auckland to have Tai Chi, we do not want to lose it. Our Master is very helpful if you have any physical problems, there is not much he does not know about the body. I personally can recommend it, as it has helped me to recover from a nasty fall I had – plus physio. The Physio has told me Tai Chi has been part of my recovery which is practised every day. One of our ladies is 94 and has been doing Tai Chi for many years. So come along and join in.
Also I would like to thank Vel Fleming for filling in during my absence from my fall.

It seems a long time since I have communicated with you all and I aplogise for that. Sadly a family bereavement just before Christmas changed my list of priorities for a while.
We received a lovely Christmas Card from the Well Foundation, which I put on the back notice board in Seabreeze and told as many as I was able to at the time. During December I had lots of gifts of wool  for the Charity and am now at the stage where I have masses of small amounts of various colours but no quantities of yarn enough for garments other than hats, bootees etc. All contributions have been readily snapped up and though I delivered a large number of items to the Foundation last month, I will need to do so again soon.  Should any of the newer residents feel inclined to make any contributions please give me a call. Thanks to all for the lovely work as always. ANNE CLARKE Ph 817 8408

The Herb boxes are doing well, residents are picking from The Oval, but not so many from the Conlon Lane and boxes by the Garden Shed in the Bush. These herbs and silverbeet are for all of us and need to be picked to keep them growing. Also if anyone has a surplus of plants don't throw them out plant them in the boxes for all of us to share. These are communal boxes for all of us to use and it is nice to have fresh herbs on hand. I am going to get some more Mint, Coriander, Basil, Parsley and Cress ready for summer. As you are walking by please feel free to pick whatever you need or would like to try. The Celery/Parsley is growing strongly and has masses of flavour. There is plenty of activity in the Bush with volunteers doing a great job keeping on top of tidying up and trying to get pops of colour going. Watering will soon be a busy time as we get into the warmer weather.
Aileen Keery, 817 3399

Happy New Year to you all, hoping you all are having a wonderful summer. So much is going on around the village in the gardens, the Bush and of course with Manukau. It has been so busy moving plants and finding new places and there is still much to do. We are going to have our first meeting for 2017 on Wednesday 18th January at 2pm until about 3pm. New residents are also welcome to come along for a chat and catch-up. We will meet down by the Fireplace in Seabreeze. See you there.

Keep Your Freedom and Independence
Are you a member of the AA? Are you 80 plus? 
Did you know that you can book a FREE in-car coaching session? A few days ago I made use of this service and was mightily impressed. An AA driving instructor came to the village, we drove in my car for a whole hour while she observed my driving style. Before we took off she checked the following: 1) vehicle check, 2) cockpit drill, then while driving, 3) communicating and signalling, 4) car control, 5) hazard identification,, hints and feedback. My correct seating position was also checked. If this is for you: Phone 0800 223 748 or go to: and make an appointment. My instructor was Shifali Patel. The whole session was well worth the time it took. And pleasant!

Just reminding residents that the Friends of the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra subsidise a bus going to the APO concerts at the Town Hall. The cost is $10 return. The bus leaves from Pinesong and drops us off right at the Town Hall then picks us up from there after the concert and brings us back home. All for $10 – cheaper than driving and parking! There are two more concerts this month – on Thursday 21 July Love and Loss at 8pm and Friday 29 July Otello – Opera in Concert, starring Simon O’Neill at 7.30pm. There will be buses going to both concerts. If you are interested in joining us please give me a call and I can give you more details.

Open: Tuesday–Sunday
This café was recommended to us by a resident, so we ventured along Hillsborough Road, turning into Richardson Road, there was the Café on the left. It has been open for a year and is very clean and roomy. The staff were very friendly.
The variety of food was excellent, consisting of a large array of sandwiches, cakes and French pastries. Coffee was also good and the prices were reasonable.
We recommend that you try this café. If you would like to extend your outing, you could travel along Richardson Road to Weston Avenue where Kevin Kilsby’s Ceramic Studio is located. The garden is a must to look around whilst you are there.

This is a really wonderful combination of fresh fruits, sugar and rum, brandy or vodka which you marinate in a jar until the sugar has dissolved and the flavours have permeated the chosen spirit to make a delicious alcoholic syrup. It should be started now and will be ready for Christmas.
For every 1lb (500g) fruit you will need 8oz (250g) caster sugar and enough rum or other alcohol to cover the mixture.
The idea is that you start with the first fruits of the season and then work your way thorough strawberries, raspberries, red and blackcurrants, loganberries, cherries, peaches and apricots. Avoid melons and apples.
Prepare the fruits as for eating – pick over, hull, stone or de-stalk. Toss the fruits in the right amount of sugar and leave to stand for about 1-2 hours to draw the juices, then tip them into a Rumtopf jar or a wide necked jar with a lid – it must be deep enough so the fruit can be layered. Add sufficient spirit to submerge the fruit (press cling wrap on to the surface to keep the fruit under the alcohol), then cover the jar.
As you build up the layers of sugared fruit, always submerge them with your chosen spirit. After adding the last batch of fruit, store for at least a month before using, to give it lots of time to absorb the flavour.
To use: Spoon over ice cream; use to soak the sponge base of a trifle. They syrup can be served as an after dinner liqueur or added to a glass of white wine.
Note: you can use just one fruit if you like, for example strawberries, with sugar and rum.

Volunteers Wanted
The University of Auckland is running a Hearing Study at Pinesong and needs people to volunteer for a free hearing assessment. We are doing this study because in New Zealand we have very little information about the hearing abilities of our older adults. This research project aims to remedy this, and potentially help improve the hearing services available to people that they may need as they age.
If you participate you get a free hearing assessment on site at Pinesong at a time to suit you. It doesn’t matter if you already use hearing aids or not. All results are confidential.
Interested? To find out more contact:
