working with you
for a better future
By CATE BROUGHTON
TWO ELDERLY women survived a
serious crash at the notorious
Lehmans and Johns roads intersec-
tion near Rangiora on Friday.
One of the women was flown to
hospital and the other transported
by road after their car smashed into
an oncoming van at about 2.25pm.
A Christchurch Hospital spokes-
man confirmed one of the women
had been discharged on the week-
end, while the other remained in
hospital in a stable condition.
The Waimakariri District Council
has brought forward plans to build a
traffic island at the intersection,
following the crash.
The work will be done in the next
two weeks, roading manager Ken
Senior Sergeant Mike McRandle
said all involved were lucky to
survive Friday's crash.
It was surprising we were not
dealing with a fatality.''
Both vehicles were extensively
The accident comes only seven
weeks after the last serious crash at
the same site in which four people,
including two children, were injured.
A man has been charged with
careless driving causing injury for
that crash, which occurred at 3.30pm
on Friday, July 27, Mr McRandle
The two crashes prompted the
reprioritisation of intersection
Traffic islands on Lehmans Road
would enable the give way signs to
be positioned in the middle of the
road -- making the intersection more
visible, and breaking their tunnel
vision' Mr Stevenson said.
Recent similar intersection
upgrades in the area included
Lehmans and Oxford roads, Two
Chain and North Eyre roads, and
Plasketts and Lehmans roads.
Mundi to present concerts
band Mundi will
be playing two
dates in the
Hurunui at the
end of this
Mundi's music, while
utterly original, is a
synthesis of many global
colours and influences.
THE PRESS has called them
fresh'' and funky'', with intri-
cate, multi-layered works'' and
dynamic solos. Now, with several
national tours under their belt,
the band Mundi is booked for two
concerts and a series of workshops
in the Hurunui, home to band
leader Tamara Smith and her
brother and fellow band member,
The pair grew up in Manuka
Bay and attended Cheviot Area
School, where they started their
musical journeys -- Tamara with
the flute and Tyson on the guitar.
Both went on to the CPIT jazz
school before leaving New Zealand
Three years ago, Tamara
returned from a South American
odyssey and Mundi was formed,
bringing together flute, sax, banjo
marimba, voice, bass and world
Mundi's music, while utterly
original, is a synthesis of many
global colours and influences,''
Tamara says. It takes the
listener on a musical journey,
traversing landscapes rich with
texture and surprise, and allowing
them to experience -- through
their own imagination -- other
vignettes of the world.''
The band has recorded two
albums and toured widely,
included a spell in Sri Lanka,
where part of their debut album
was recorded and a television spe-
cial was devoted to them.
Their music is frequently heard
on National Radio and has also
been showcased on Concert FM's
hour-long show Global Sounds.It
featured as Kiwi FM's Indie
album of the week and has repres-
ented New Zealand music on
Hakol Zorem, a world music radio
station in Israel.
This month's concerts will be
the last for 2012, as Tamara takes
a break from teaching a range of
instruments at her old school, and
departs for Nepal and India.
You can catch Mundi at the
Brew Moon on Friday, September
21, at 7.30pm, and at the Cheviot
Trust Hotel on Saturday, Sept-
ember 22, also at 7.30pm.
They will also be hosting three
community workshops in the
Cheviot Area School gymnasium
on the Saturday afternoon, in con-
junction with percussionist Doug
Brush and African dancer Emily
Napolitano. To find out more

class, and the open community
