By LYNDAL JEFFERIES Go to www.waihekemarket place.co.nz to see LaRaLush explain the hula challenge demonstrated by members of the Waiheke Gymnastics Club. A unique project created on Waiheke is designed to help children traumatised by the Christchurch earthquakes. The two-pronged project involves a therapeutic music and story compilation and an event called the Great New Zealand Hulathon which will pay for it. Promoter for the Hulathon LaRaLush says children across New Zealand are being invited to sign up for the event between May 9 and 29. The child who does the most hula-hoops will get into the Guinness Book of Records, which does not have a record for the most hula-hoops done by a child. Proceeds from sponsorship will pay for a unique soundtrack that is being recorded for Christchurch children. Any money left over will go to the Red Cross Can- terbury quake appeal. LaRaLush says: The Hulathon is for children right across the country but I'm visiting all three Waiheke schools to enthuse island kids to lead the charge on this Waiheke initiative for the kids of Christchurch. The school that raises the most funds will get the latest AppleMac laptop and there are all sorts of other fantastic prizes.'' The Given Grace Trust set up by therapeutic counsellor Delaine Jones has com- missioned Waiheke musician Anu Grace to produce the compilation of stories and songs designed for children under 12 who can't sleep and badly need rest and relax- ation. Top musicians includ- ing Tina Cross, Eden Roberts, Grant Bridger and Ukelele Bartt are helping. Ms Jones says: It has chil- dren helping children on the voice tracks, stories, music, visualisations and more. Children will be able to download it free to their iPods and we'll be giving them out free on CD too.'' Ms Jones says another series will be developed for teenagers and adults. Download an entry form at www.givengracetrust.org.nz to take part. Children can also go to Hulathon on Facebook or the kids' programme website www.whatnow.tv. Landmark sculpture: Chris Booth's artwork has been installed on Rotoroa Island. Photo: KATHRIN SIMON Rotoroa Island art By GEORGE GARDNER A landmark sculpture has been installed on Rotoroa Island off the eastern end of Waiheke. Visitors to the island on Saturday witnessed the one-off opportunity to cele- brate the installation of the monumental work by artist Chris Booth. It comprises three seven- metre cantilevered prongs threaded with rock, extending from the island's southern headland. It was commissioned as part of the Plowman fami- ly's funding of a 99-year lease turning the island into a public arts, heritage and conservation estate. Neal Plowman fondly remembers the times he sailed with his family around the Hauraki Gulf. It is a sentinel landmark sculpture that is refer- enced from the nearby pohutukawa trees,'' Roto- roa Island Trust member John Gow says. Mr Gow says each arm of the sculpture weighs four tonnes. It was trucked down from Chris Booth's studio in Kerikeri. Cruises to Rotoroa run on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, departing Auckland at 9am and Orapiu at 9.50am and returning at 3pm. Bookings are essential from www.360discovery. co.nz or phone 0800- 360-3472. A $5 landing fee helps with the upkeep of Rotoroa Island. Two men arrested on cannabis charges Two men have been arrested on drugs charges. On April 7 police arrested a 49-year-old Ostend man for possession of cannabis after a search warrant was executed at his home address and a 58-year-old man, also from Ostend, for possessing can- nabis, cultivating cannabis, possessing drug utensils, sell- ing and supplying cannabis. The following day a 19-year-old Hamilton man and a 19-year-old man from Oneroa were arrested for wil- ful damage to a vehicle. On April 10 a 35-year-old Oneroa man was arrested for refusing an officer's request for blood after being stopped and breath tested on Ocean Rd.Breaching bail conditions also resulted in three men being arrested. The first arrest, on April 7, was of a 41-year-old Surfdale man. The other two -- a 23-year-old man and 45-year- old man -- were both from Ostend.
