CONSTRUCTION SITE CRANE REMOVAL
On Saturday 17 February, the Crane at the Manukau building site will start being removed.
This project will be concluded on Monday 19 February. There is a small chance that the Crane required to move the current crane will arrive on site on the afternoon of Friday 16 February and be left overnight inside the NZ Strong compound. As 2 full days are required to dismantle the crane, work may need to continue until 8pm at the latest on the Saturday. There will be a number of Large trucks coming and going during these 2 days and a ‘spotter’ will be stationed at all times on the corner of Beach Lane and Pinesong Drive to coordinate traffic. For your own safety, please be aware of the extra traffic flow in this area during these times.


SPA POOL COVERS
The bottom surface of the foam spa pool covers have been gradually degrading and are now leaving small pieces of foam in the pools so we have decided to remove these completely and an alternative plastic cover is being researched.

SEABREEZE CLADDING PROJECT
Our painting contractors have completed the bulk of the painting for Seabreeze building and are now finishing off any minor remedial work which will be done by the end of this week. The scope of works does not include a full re-paint of all balcony railings and touch ups to these will only occur if there has been any damage caused by the contractors while working on the balconies. If you feel that something has been missed however please fill out a maintenance request and we will come and discuss this with you.

SCHEDULED APARTMENT FIRE ALARM TESTING
Please be aware that on Thursday 22 February from 10 am the Chubb serviceman will be testing all apartment building fire alarms. This is a routine check and each building alarm will be tested for just a few seconds.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
Thank you
Neil Forrest
Maintenance Supervisor

HEALTH & SAFETY ALERT
Residents with a Pacemaker are warned that they should not wear Magnetic name badges.
If any resident has a Pacemaker and has one of the newer type Magnetic name badges please
do not use it as it may interfere with the safe operation of the Pacemaker.

RATES REBATE UPDATE Finally the rates rebate letters are trickling through to residents. Please remember to bring your letter to me so that I can make a copy and action the credit as soon as possible. Contrary to what you are told in the letter, official notification can take several months to come through to me from council.

Those of you who had your windows cleaned last month may have noticed a discrepancy between your November statement balance and the amount taken by Direct Debit on the 15
th December. I had inadvertently overcharged you all but managed to get the credits through before payment day. Be assured that the amount deducted should have been less than that expected. If I have confused you, feel free to give me a call.

GARDENING TEAM
Well we’re truly into the New Year, into our second week of January already… how time fly’s.

Bayview gardens have been weeded and trimmed back on the west and library sides, when access is available we will continue along the Seabreeze service apartment’s area.
Requests are still continuing along the Terrace and weekly dead heading and weeding is being done on all the common gardens.
Once the Terrace requests are complete the team will be heading to the Point.

The Village Shop will reopen on Monday, 15th of January 2018 at 10.30 a.m.
We are also looking for some-one to help man the shop once a month next year. This will be for two hours on the first Wednesday of each month. No previous experience is required and full training will be given. If this is something you feel you could help will, please
Phone Joslyn on 817 5799.

GARDEN CIRCLE
It has been a couple of weeks since my last catch up but of course life around the village has been a bit slower due to the virus but now we are beginning to get out and about again. As I am writing this we have rain which will be so good for the plants and environment and we will probably see a big spurt of growth along with it. Of course the downside of that is weeds, but our Metlifecare gardeners are

working as hard as ever and getting on top of most of it. They are a great team.
The monthly meeting for February will be on Wednesday 21st February at 2pm in the Matai Room. The new updated Map and List of things to see in the village will be discussed and a decision made as to how we want it to be promoted. We always welcome new residents to our group as we just enjoy a chat about our environment and know that not everybody can or wants to do work around the village. Just an interest in your home and how it looks is all you need.
When you are walking around the Bush keep a look out for the Mosaic BUSH WALK sign done by a popular resident, and we also have a new featured concrete Palm sculpture to watch out for. The two water lilies are still doing well, the Pink one certainly sends its flowers up nice and tall while the cream one likes to lay about and be a little lazy. The frogs are certainly enjoying their lovely environment but I have yet to see one on a lily pad but who knows it might happen while we are not watching. One came inside my house last night and I thought it was a leaf, certainly gave me a fright when I bent to pick it up and it leapt up causing me to scream, I didn’t know I could scream that loud. I managed to encourage it out the door again.
Kind regards

KNITTERS NEWS A belated offering of New Year Good Wishes to you all. Another year has come and gone and already I have collected a number of articles for our great Charity.  Well done ladies, your efforts are very impressive particularly as our good weather is more suited to swimming than knitting!
A lovely card full of appreciative sentiments arrived just too late for Christmas even though it was mailed on the 19th December.  I quickly pinned it to the Notice Board at the Seabreeze eastern back door.  Do please take the time to read it and enjoy the comments from Louise of the Well Foundation.   She is truly grateful for all we do.
Going forward I have my hand out again for wool and yarns that people either have no further use for or wish to donate for the benefit of all those needy young folk who live within our D.H.B. catchment area, that being Waitakere, North Shore and all points north.  While the need for hats and bootees or slippers is not so great during summer, garments such as jumpers, cardigans and blankets, etc are always in demand.
This year I plan to keep track of all the garments we produce - I realised just too late that 2017 was a bumper year for what we produced but had no figures  to offer you.  (One of my New Year's Resolutions).

OUTDOOR BOWLS
Good morning everyone. I hope you are all enjoying the continuing fine spell of our early summer weather and are looking forward to the upcoming festive season.

The time has finally arrived when I choose to walk away from the responsibility of the
position of Convener of the Outdoor Bowls Group which I have held for the last 3 years with the very able support of Dave Annan, John Horder, Bill Mules, Mary Cole, Elva Coulston and Val Eade. My sincere apologies to anyone else that may have helped at times and I am not aware of.
I have enjoyed the experience of organizing the activities for bowls over the 3 years, but my competitive nature has drawn me to join the Blockhouse Bay Bowling Club where I am enjoying the experience immensely. The grass and carpet greens are far superior and a lot faster than the artificial surface we play on at Pinesong and I urge Metlifecare Administrators to insist that any new bowling green constructed or resurfaced in a Village in the future, must be laid with a carpet surface to ensure that bowlers (particularly women can continue to enjoy playing bowls for much longer than they are able to now due to the heavy texture of the green.
My final duty apart from
chairing the Annual Meeting on Monday January 15, 2018, is to inform all bowlers whether you play at Pinesong or at a club, that Waitakere Gardens Village will for the third year in a row, host a Any Combination Triples Tournament at the Henderson Bowling Club on Monday 26 February, 2018 commencing at 9.30am. Entry Fee is $30 per team which includes morning and afternoon teas and lunch. If you wish to enter a team, please read the posters on the Seabreeze or Bowling Green notice boards or contact me (PH 817-7568) for further details
The Tournament will again be sponsored by Metlifecare after having withdrawn its support from this year’s tournament.

In 2015 Pinesong teams finished first, second and third and this year the only team entered
was runner up losing on a count back of number of ends won. Come on Pinesong let’s do a repeat of 2015 and finish first, second and third again in 2018. This is an excellent tournament and I thoroughly recommend it to all Pinesong bowlers. The tournament is open to residents of Metlifecare Villages only.
Last but not least I wish to thank everyone for their wholehearted support during my tenure as Convener of the Outdoor Bowls Group and I take this opportunity to wish
all Pinesong Residents and Staff a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year.

Cheers,

John Crow

Convener

HERB BOXES
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.

RECIPE FOR JANUARY
Fed up with large jars of relish or chutney when you make it using kilos of fruit as in your old recipe books? Tired of the same old selection at the supermarket? Here is the answer to your problem from the Listener some years ago. A trustworthy formula to experiment with for sweet fruit chutneys especially as stone fruit is so cheap at the moment. Plums $2 a kilo at one chain this week.

To make just 2 or 3 small pots of chutney a good starting ratio is 500 grams fruit and onions, 250 grams sugar and 125 mls vinegar, a dash of salt to bring up the flavour. Now you can play around as much as you like. Brown sugar and a red onion for glossy plum chutney. White sugar and cider vinegar for a glowing apricot or nectarine mix. Add extras as you will. Chilli, cayenne pepper, candied peel, spices, glacé ginger or a cinnamon stick for example
. E.G. NECTARINE AND GINGER CHUTNEY.
450 grams nectarines, medium brown onion, salt, 2 tbs glace ginger chopped, ½ teaspoon ground coriander seed.
Put all ingredients into a heavy pot and slowly bring to the boil. Simmer gently for about 40 minutes until thick and glossy, adding a little more water part-way through if the mixture is getting too thick. Wash and heat 2-3 jars and fill with hot chutney. Cover.

AA SENIOR DRIVING COURSE

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,6.tips, hints and feedback. My correct seating position was also checked. If this is for you: Phone 0800 223 748 or go to: aa.co.nz/senior-driver and make an appointment. My instructor was Shifali Patel. The whole session was well worth the time it took. And pleasant!
