See feature on P22 Island bars get licences suspended Suspended: Skinny Sardine in Oneroa lost its liquor licence after a police crackdown. Two Waiheke bars were among almost 50 Auckland bars and restaurants that had their liquor licences sus- pended for breaching alcohol laws in the past year. Offences around the region included selling alcohol to underage and drunk people, and promoting excessive liquor consumption. The Rocks in Ostend served a four-day liquor licence suspension last week, for allowing minors to be in supervised area, allowing drunkenness on licensed premises and/or unauthor- ised sale or supply. Skinny Sardine in Oneroa, which is now closed, was suspended for unauthorised sale or supply and/or allowing minors to be in a supervised area. The figures from July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011 released by the Ministry of Justice come as police targeted a group of bars in a crackdown on alcohol-related crime in the city. The task force including police, Auckland Council and the Auckland Regional Public Health Service visited selec- ted bars across the city dur- ing two weekend operations earlier this year. Auckland city central area commander inspector Andrew Coster says the bars were identified as potentially posing the highest risk to the public, had the highest preva- lence of offending associated with them as well as a history of non-compliance with the Sale of Liquor Act. Charlotte gets walking Sharing her delight: Quadruple amputee Charlotte Cleverley- Bisman's school mates are supporting the seven-year-old in her resolve to wear her artificial limbs every day. One the move: Charlotte is delighted to be walking around school, this time to assembly. By LYNDAL JEFFERIES QUADRUPLE amputee Charlotte Cleverley-Bisman is back at Waiheke Primary School and walking on her new legs every day. Charlotte lost her limbs after contracting meningococcal disease when she was six months old and since then has used a variety of ways of getting around including a wheelchair and skateboard. Just before she went to Camp No Limits for amputees in America in June, she received new prosthetic legs from The New Zealand Artificial Limb Centre. Her mother Pam Cleverley says while she was away at the camp she was encouraged to use the new limbs every day and push through the pain''. While she was at camp Charlotte tried a bungy swing jump, kayaking, kick boxing and climbing wall, egged on by her mentor Cameron Clapp who is a triple ampu- tee, athlete and surfer. Pam says by the time they got back to New Zealand on August 8 the prosthetic legs had moulded to fit Charlotte's legs so well she can wear them every day''. Charlotte's school friends have shared her delight with her new legs and ability to walk to and from class with them. Her friend Topas Hall says: I love the pretty pink colour and the butterflies on her feet.'' Charlotte is a little more reluctant to sing the limbs' praises. I'm getting used to them,'' she says. Mum Pam says: She is out of her comfort zone now. She had got really com- fortable with using her skateboard and her chair, but at the camp they wouldn't let her use them at all.'' After a visit to a prosthetic specialist in the United States, the family is working with Charlotte to strengthen her body to prepare her for longer limbs in the future. She is on a special diet and fitness regime, to strengthen her core muscles which will afford her more control of longer limbs,'' Pam says. Either way her future is walking now.''
