REAL BUZZ: Former Christchurch residents Jan Livesley and Bev Baker are
setting up housie in Amberley.

By CATE BROUGHTON
AMBERLEY NEWBIES and ex-
Christchurch residents Jan Lives-
ley and Bev Baker are planning to
bring the game they love to the
The pair can t speak highly
enough of their new town, but
both agreed it was lacking a very
important element -- housie.
Mrs Livesley moved to Amber-
ley in August 2011 after her home
in New Brighton was red-zoned,
and Mrs Baker moved from Sprey-
don in June last year to get away
from the earthquakes .
Soaking up the sunshine on Mrs
Livesley s porch, the friends said
they loved their new hometown.
It s beautiful, it really is, we
have got everything here.
But a recent conversation about
how much they missed playing
housie led them to begin setting it
With the St John s Hall secured
for a venue and the wooden
numbers and board bought on
Trade Me, the self-confessed hou-
sie addicts say they are ready for
the game s launch on April 6.
The game will appeal to both
old and young, they said.
It s going to be a fun time out,
it s just great the number of peo-
ple you meet.
There was also the thrill of the
win when all your numbers came
up first and you get to call out
It s a real buzz.
It gets the old heart beating
when you are waiting for that last
Participants pay about $5 per
card and could win up to $20 if
they were the first to have their
numbers called out, Mrs Livesley
However, the amount given per
completed house (or card) would
depend on how many people came.
All proceeds, after winnings had
been distributed, would go to pay
for the rent of the hall and a
donation to St John.
The games will be played on
Saturdays from 2pm-4pm at the St
John Hall, 66 Carters Rd, from April
