6 NORTH SHORE TIMES, JANUARY 28, 2016 Shore memories Jerry Jennett, retired, 83, Glenfield. Howlong have you lived here and where are you from? Myfamily and I moved from London to Waiheke Island in 1962 then to Glenfield in 1975. Wehave lived here ever since. Describe your neighbourhood. Welive in a quiet road offOnewa Rd. It’s a high density housing area so when people are entertaining in their gardens we hear every word. I don’t think they realise that. What is your earliest memoryof the Shore? Myseven children went to Glenfield College, Westlake Girls, Westlake Boys and Northcote College somymemories of the North Shore are many. From school days, shopping and relaxing, to the great beaches and family parties. What are the greatest advantages to living here? Wehave such beautiful beaches and domains, great shopping facilities and good schools and we are only a stones throw from Auckland city. Where is your favourite North Shore beach and why? There are so many great beaches and they’re great for all kinds of water sports. Whois the person you admire the most and why? Winston Peters. I was his chairman for the Northcote area, then the Glenfield area and he was a good-heartedmanand a great example of wantingNewZealand forNewZealanders. What do you like least about the Shore and howcanwefix it? The advertising signs on the hand rails at the junction of Pupuke and Glenfield roads. There are others in our reserves. Canwe have these tidied up and put up proper display boards? ‘‘"When people are entertaining in their gardens we hear every word.’’ Where is the best place to have ameal? Birkenhead’s Masala Indian Restaurant. What are you doing this weekend? Every Saturday I go to Quodesh Fellowship and on Sundays friends and family call or we relax and do our ownthing. I’m restoring a boat originally built in 1967 and have a large record collection I need to catalogue and sell off so I have more than enough to keepmeoccupied.

Young musicians camp A group of young performers is heading to Hamilton for a week of intense music training. Made up of 60 classical musicians, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra National Youth Orchestra will get together for a one-week music camp at Waikato University. The camp, lead by Australian conductor Richard Gill, runs until February 6 and culminates in two concerts in Hamilton and Tauranga. Violinist Olivia McNeill, 19, has been in the orchestra for six years and is looking forward to the intensive week. The Hillcrest resident says it’s a great opportunity to play orchestral music. ‘‘I think it’s great to be making music with people that you can relate to and working with young musicians who have the same passion for orchestral music,’’ McNeill says. McNeill, whose younger sister Cecile is also part of the orchestra, is expecting it to be challenging but rewarding as the music eventually comes together over the week. The NZSO National Youth Orchestra has been running for 57 years and acts a stepping stone for upcoming New Zealand musicians. NZSO chief executive Christo- pher Blake says it’s important to provide an opportunity for musicians to perform under the direction of highly experienced conductors.
