If you are planning a workplace function with alcohol and want to be a responsible host set expectations, model good behaviour, serve sub- stantial food and make sure alcohol is not the only choice of drink. ALAC chief executive Gerard Vaughan says Christmas parties used to be considered legend- ary for stories about people harming them- selves and others. But many workplaces are now taking steps to encourage staff to ease up on the drink and reduce the harm caused by excess drinking. He says a focus on family activities is becoming more popular for many firms at this time of the year. Rogue gardeners strike People are being urged to stand their ground against cowboy gard- eners who are charg- ing large sums of money for poor quality outdoor work. Epsom community constable Gordon Campbell says the dodgy gardeners have started early this year. We have already had reports of people being charged ridicu- lous amounts for small jobs. Efforts are then made to get the gardeners back to rec- tify the work with little success, his newsletter reads. Mr Campbell says residents should not feel pressured to employ them and is also asking people to keep an eye on elderly neighbours who may be approached. Call the Epsom sta- tion on 630-2291. Dance recognition Renowned dancer and choreographer Michael Parmenter recently con- tinued Unitec Institute of Technology s strong connection with the Arts Foundation Laureate. Michael, pictured, an adjunct professor at Unitec s Department of Performing and Screen Arts, is one of five recipients of this year s Laureates. Of course I was thrilled to be selected along with the other fine artists recognised, he says. But it is also an honour to join that won- derful band of arts warriors who have received an Arts Laur- eate over the years. The regular appear- ance of choreographers and dancers in the awards is recognition of the very important role dance plays in New Zealand s cultural life. Choreography, more than any other art form, really is a collective activity, Michael says. A choreographer is nothing without the sup- port and complicity of managers, designers, musicians and especially those extraordinary ma- gicians, the dancers -- so this award is a recog- nition of all the creative artists who have joined me in bringing dance to the world. The Laureate is awarded to those for sig- nificant contributions to the arts industry and carries a $50,000 cheque for each recipient. Michael Parmenter has had a long associ- ation with Unitec s dance programme and has choreographed one of the works for A Life Between Us that last month marked the programme s 21 years of existence. He is currently in France where he is completing part of his doctorate studies. Unitec dance pro- gramme leader Charene Griggs says, Michael has raised the profile of contemporary dance not only in New Zealand but also on the international stage, which is a unique achievement and one deserving recognition. Unitec enjoys strong links with the Laureates. Designer and master carver Lyonel Grant, a recipient last year, is the man behind Unitec s impressive marae and continues to run carving workshops at Unitec.
