Detailed

skate park

designs

finally

completed

• By Emily O’Connell

AFTER THREE years of

planning, all detailed design and

specifications have been completed

for the two proposed skate parks

in Halswell.

The parks, which will be in

Halswell Domain and Knights

Stream Park, will be skate-ready

by January.

City council head of parks Brent

Smith said they won’t release costs

of the parks due to commercial

sensitivities ahead of the tendering

process.

“The funding comes from two

areas. One being parks capital

funding for Halswell Domain so

this is shown in the Annual Plan,

and the other funding for Knights

Stream Park is from development

contributions for the subdivision,”

Mr Smith said.

City councillor Vicki Buck said

it was important to have the skate

parks because children are so

important in communities.

“You’re building communities

for all of the population, and you

need to remember what children

want to do,” Cr Buck said.

But some residents weren’t so

pleased with the noise and antisocial

behaviour the skate parks

may attract.

WESTERN NEWS

News........................................3-7

THE TWO proposed Halswell

skate parks are going to make a

big difference in the community.

As you’ll read on page 1, some

neighbours have opposed the

skate parks, saying they don’t

want the anti-social behaviour

near their houses.

This is a fair call, but putting

a facility like a skate park in

a residential area is not only

something children want but

something they need.

It’s a good chance for children

to get off their devices and do

some exercise.

The parks also provide children

with an opportunity to

socialise with their neighbours.

The days of walking over to

your neighbour’s house to play

together seem to be a thing of

the past because children are too

distracted by technology.

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

ABOUT 40 new jobs will be

created in Hornby when a 28,551

sq m supermarket distribution

centre is built.

The Foodstuffs temperaturecontrolled

building in Hickory Pl

will be completed in March 2019.

The first stage is expected to be

open in August next year.

The centre will offer between

30 to 40 new jobs in order picking,

inventory control, forklift

drivers and truck drivers.

Foodstuffs bought the land in

2010, started planning in 2014

and are expecting the first stage

to be complete in August 2018.

With all work on the centre due

to be completed in March 2019.

“Our existing temperaturecontrolled

facility is struggling to

keep up with demand – particularly

in peak trading periods,”

Foodstuffs South Island chief

executive officer Steve Anderson

said.

“This new facility will increase

our chiller capacity by 100 per

cent and our freezer capacity by

50 per cent. For customers, that

means we’ll be able to offer an

expanded range of products. For

our stores, it means they’ll get

those products delivered daily –

seven days a week. We’re investing

in range and supply chain so

that we can get products out to

stores even faster,” Mr Anderson

said.

The three other chillers already

existing in Hornby will be

demolished and turned into car

parking.

More jobs to be created in Hornby

Sixteen dock doors, four large

chiller chambers, two 1000 KVA

generators, a truck wash and a

weighbridge are among some of

the features the new centre will

have.

“We have allowed space for our

business to grow. In the short

term, that means we can offer a

logistics service to our suppliers,

who want to use our space to

store their excess product, and

save on transport costs,” Mr

Anderson said.

NEW LIGHTS AT ISLINGTON

Two new sets of traffic lights

were installed in Islington

yesterday. The lights have been

placed at the intersection of

Main South Rd and Pound Rd,

and Pound Rd and Waterloo

Rd. In addition to this, there

are two lanes for straight

through traffic on Main South

Rd at the intersection with

Pound Rd.

SCHOOL’S CULTURAL DAY

Ilam School is celebrating

different cultures today.

Pupils will wear outfits

representing a culture and

will take a plate of food to

share which is relevant to their

chosen culture. There will also

be a concert from 11am to

noon.

ROAD NAMES

New road names in two

Halswell subdivisions may

be approved tonight at the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board meeting.

The board will discuss the

names for four roads in Awatea

Park and Quarry View. City

council staff recommended

the names be Romanee Lane,

Muirhill St, Pegson Lane and

Vehicles parked illegally not ticketed

Residents

angry over

double

standards

• By Bridget Rutherford

AN ILAM resident is

frustrated five construction

company vehicles parked

illegally two weeks ago were

not ticketed, when more than

80 other motorists have been

in the last two months.

But the city council said in

this case it was better to get

the vehicles moved as soon

as possible, rather than issue

tickets.

Parkstone Ave resident

Lynette Hardie Wills said on

Tuesday two weeks ago, five

Naylor Love Construction

utility vehicles were parked in

a no stopping part of the street

for 90min.

She said it created safety

concerns because it made seeing

oncoming traffic difficult,

so she called the city council

to complain.

But when a parking warden

arrived, he did not ticket the

vehicles, instead calling

Naylor Love to have them

removed, she said.

Dr Hardie Wills said it was

unfair regular motorists were

being ticketed, yet construction

company vehicles were

not.

She said last year staff from

Southern Response were at her

home to do EQC repairs, and

even they were ticketed.

Dr Hardie Willis said the

contractors should be able to

park in Canterbury University’s

Solway Ave car park for

free, seeing as they were doing

work for the university.

But a Canterbury University

spokesperson said they already

have 610 temporary parks for

contractors.

“It would be unfair to offer

free parking to contractors

when staff and students pay to

park on campus,” a Canterbury

University spokesperson said.

City council data shows

since July 1, it issued 83 infringement

tickets to vehicles

on Parkstone Ave.

Fifty-three were for parking

in a no stopping area, six were

for an expired warrant of fitness,

and 20 were issued for

unlicensed vehicles.

The rest were for parking in

excess of the two-hour restriction,

parking on a yellow line,

obstructing a vehicle entrance,

and not displaying a vehicle

licence.

City council transport

operations manager Aaron

Haymes said the rules were

the same for everyone.

FRUSTRATION:

Naylor Love

vehicles have not

been ticketed for

parking illegally

when other

vehicles, including

those belonging

to residents, have

been. On Friday

this Naylor Love

utility was parked

in the right spot.

“In this instance council staff

deemed it a priority to get the

vehicles moved, rather than

ticketing the vehicles, which

would not have solved the immediate

safety concerns.”

He said the parking warden

got in touch with Naylor

Love and asked the trucks be

moved, which was done “immediately.”

Mr Haymes said since the

incident, the site manager had

told staff not to park on Parkstone

Ave due to the safety

concerns raised.

He said compliance staff had

been monitoring the street and

no trucks had parked there

since.

Naylor Love declined to

comment.

Message from the Catholic Diocese

of Christchurch

Our Diocese is proud of Marian College. The school is

thriving at its inner-city campus location alongside the

Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament on Barbadoes Street.

Marian College shows us clearly that the heart of a

Catholic school lies not in its buildings, but in a strong,

supportive community built around faith.

Marian College belongs to the Catholic Kāhui Ako

Community of Learning, one of our 13 schools in

Christchurch. Each school has an affiliated parish and

networks contributing to the Diocese.

Alongside our Diocese earthquake rebuild and repair

programme, our parishes have been offered the chance to

focus on spiritual renewal as we wait for a new Bishop

to be appointed.

The process for the rebuild of Marian College’s campus

will be a priority for our new Bishop, who will ultimately

make the decision on Marian College’s permanent site.

This decision will not be made in isolation however,

there are many factors to consider and groups to consult

with, given the changes in our communities since

the earthquakes.

The Diocese looks forward to keeping the community

updated on progress. In the meantime, Marian College

continues to achieve excellent results and to thrive.

A special thank you goes to the Marian College

community – students, parents, staff and leadership, for

your ongoing patience, support and cooperation.

Fr Rick Loughnan

Catholic Diocese of Christchurch Administrator

The Marian College Principal

Marian College is very fortunate to have a small, friendly,

family atmosphere which comes from teachers and

students knowing each other well.

I am delighted to share that our students and teachers are

making the very best of our current site – opportunities

for collaboration are plenty and the benefits that come of

an inner-city location are taken up with enthusiasm.

At Marian College our special Catholic character is

built into everything we do. Our earthquake recovery

journey has taught us, that while brand new buildings and

facilities are an exciting proposition, it is our faith, our

community and our people that matter. I am excited about

the future of Marian College – we can all look forward to a

bright, sparkling new start. I hope you enjoy reading about

some of our recent happenings.

Mary-Lou Davidson,

Marian College Principal

Feast Day Festivities

One of the most anticipated events on the Marian

College calendar is Feast Day – recognised every year to

celebrate the Assumption of Mary. This year, Feast Day

began with a whole school Mass, which included the

blessing of the new music department, featuring practice

spaces and a multipurpose room.

Traditional Feast Day activities involve Marian College’s

house groups coming together in Xavier Hall to compete

in a talent quest and house group chant competition.

Rivalry between the four Marian College houses –

Brodie, Deans, Seymour and Takahe – is strong and

overwhelmingly positive. Students have been known to

rehearse their chants and performances for up to six weeks

in advance, polishing their acts ready for competition.

Each performance is judged and awarded house points

which are tallied throughout the year. The house with

the most points earned – for academic, sporting, cultural,

service and cultural achievements – is awarded the annual

Inter-House Shield at the end of year school prize giving.

Aiming for France

Football talent Rebecca Lake (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Irakehu)

could be heading to France next year to represent New

Zealand and play in the 2018 U20 Women’s World Cup.

The Year 13 Marian college student helped captain

the New Zealand U19 Football team to victory in the

Oceania Football Confederation championships in

Auckland recently, securing the team’s spot in France,

2018. Rebecca captained the team twice over the five

game campaign which saw the team win all their games

convincingly. Rebecca is a member of the Football Ferns

development squad and has played with Mainland Pride

(the National Women’s regional team) for three years.

RIA KNEY

Judo medallist

Congratulations to Ria Kney (Ngāti Kahungunu) who

won a gold medal in the U52kg girls category at the New

Zealand Secondary Schools Judo Tournament last term.

She won all five of her fights in the one day tournament

held at Lincoln High School. Ria also won gold in two

categories at the Auckland International Judo Open

tournament held three weeks later at ASB Stadium in

Auckland. One of her fights lasted just ten seconds!

Wellbeing and service

A priority for Marian College this year has been student

and staff wellbeing. This year, Marian has introduced two

new courses: Kia Maia and Mana Wahine. Kia Maia is a

course for Year 9 students which focuses on wellbeing,

character strengths, use of money, cyber safety and

developing study and life skills.

The Mana Wahine course aims to promote strong Marian

women. Especially for year 12 students, the course

teaches wellbeing, study techniques, life skills, careers,

financial literacy and service.

Marian College has a strong commitment to providing

service to the community. Not only students, but staff

members are also actively involved.

Marian College staff members rolled up their sleeves

recently, to spend an afternoon participating in a range of

service activities including assisting at Christchurch City

Mission and St Vincent de Paul, cleaning up a beach,

gardening for the Beatitude sisters, making goods for

Christchurch Hospital’s neo-natal unit and other

children in need.

Southern Jam

Marian College’s Jazz Band travelled to the Southern

Jam Jazz Festival in Blenheim recently – taking part

in the showcase and celebration of the South Island’s

secondary school jazz bands. Marian College’s Jazz Band

performed at eight public venues and took home a bronze

award. Band director Frances Daly is a Marian old girl

currently studying at Ara Jazz School. Frances inspired

the Jazz Band to compose an original song ‘Dirty

Window’, which won Best Original Song at this year’s

Christchurch Jazz Festival.

The new gymnasium will feature

a full-size basketball court,

equipment storage, changing

rooms and showers, and staff

office areas.

The school will also retain its

existing gymnasium, giving the

school two full-size indoor basketball

The school’s rebuild wasn’t due

“Our kids, family and community

Colleges raise $5000 for Maddie

• By Emily O’Connell

ABOUT 30 different acts have

taken the stage to raise money

for sick teen Maddie Collins.

St Thomas’ of Canterbury

and Villa Maria colleges joined

forces on Thursday, putting

on their annual

variety show. The

show has been going

since 1988 and

the money raised

has always gone to

Maddie

Collins

a charity or person

in need.

Maddie, 13, has

a kidney disease called focal

segmental glomerulosclerosis.

She needs $750,000 to fly

to the United States to receive

another kidney transplant. She

has received a kidney transplant

from her father but her body

rejected it.

•From page 1

“Some people liked the idea

of living near a skate park, and

some people didn’t,” Cr Buck

said.

Community consultation

earlier this year showed

overwhelming support for both

facilities, with about 70 per

cent of 147 responses in favour.

About 20 per cent were against

St Thomas’ of Canterbury

head of english Maureen Gaffaney

said it was an excellent

show. She said they raised more

than $3000 and had about 400

attendees.

Mrs Gaffaney said Maddie

was an easy choice for this year’s

variety show as her brother

Tomas went to St Thomas’ of

Canterbury and her sister Georgia

went to Villa Maria.

“It’s great to see people get up

on stage and doing things they

don’t normally do,” Mrs Gaffaney

said.

She said they had a range of

acts from kapa haka groups to a

staff rock band.

Maddie’s mum Sarah Manson

Collins said they were ecstatic

when they learned the variety

show was for their daughter. But

due to varying reasons, her family

weren’t able to attend.

She said Maddie now does

Southern Health School, where a

teacher visits her home, because

she is too sick.

“She’s getting tireder and

tireder definitely. She doesn’t

have the same level of energy

she had a few months ago,” Mrs

Manson Collins said.

Detailed skate park designs completed

the Halswell Domain skate park

(above) and 14 per cent were

against Knights Stream Park.

“The staff have done an amazing

job at getting out and involving

recommendations the

working party has made

to the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community

Board regarding antisocial

behaviour at the

Riccarton bus lounge

on Star.kiwi Rise Up

Christchurch’s Facebook

page

Andrew Palliser – Put

on Magic/Coast radio, what

14-year-old could possibly look

cool around the golden oldies

and funeral adverts? Solved.

Cathryn Lucy – Who uses

WiFi? Like I mean sure it’s

good but turning it off won’t

solve anything. They need to

be a bit more proactive than

that.

George Chan – How

much is this ‘free’ WiFi costing

the ratepayers? Would

rather see the funds go to more

effective security measures.

Better to centre these free

WiFi around police stations,

or around tourist spots but of

course these will end up becoming

freeloading ‘freedom’

camper campsites like the

outsides our libraries.

Nic Davies – Have a time

limit for in and around the bus

lounge. If you are not there

waiting for a bus then you get

told to move on. If you are

harassing people or fighting or

threatening any one you are

banned from the area. It’s time

to get tough on these dumb

drop-kicks.

Robbin Masters – Here’s

a solution. Trespass the bad

buggers.

Sandria Pickering – I understand

one community with

this kind of problem solved it

by playing classical music.

Claire Coxon – I use the

free WiFi so why should I be

punished for the bad youths of

this city.

Scott Nelson – Ditch

one of the security guards in

favour of a cop.

Scotty Wilson – How

about instead of the police

ticketing people for 4km/h

over the speed limit on the

southern motorway, and

threatening hairdressers who

serve complementary beer

actually do something about it

and sort these degenerates out.

That sounds too much like police

work, this is part of the

reason why people do not take

public transport, they are safe

in their own car, unless they

have had one beer at the hairdressers

or travelling 4km/h

over the speed limit. Sort it out

NZ police.

international trends

reflected in centre’s food outlets

The Hub Hornby has undergone significant developments and improvements

over the last four years, with the aim of providing an exciting

and diverse shopping experience for its customers.

One of the key areas that is drawing people into the centre is its fully

revamped food court, centre manager Jason Marsden says.

“Customers are really enjoying the variety and quality of the food

offering in our food court, as well as the more contemporary atmosphere,”

Jason says.

“International trends in food courts are changing what used to be quite

boring places to eat, to becoming much more of an experience for

customers, and that’s what we offer at The Hub,” he says.

“Not only does our food court have a great variety of food, there is

also a range of seating options. For example, we have the round tables

for groups, and the leaners where people can stop for a quick bite and

check their mobiles.”

The acoustic ceiling tiles also enhance the environment by reducing

noise and making it easier for people to have a conversation, Jason says.

With a range of ethnic food, including popular Asian cuisines such as

Indian, Chinese and Japanese, complemented by tasty café-style foods,

there is plenty for customers to choose from in the food court.

But that’s not all. The Hub has several other cafés and food outlets

located amongst the retail businesses, and here again the environment

and food quality has gone up several notches, Jason says.

“The cafés have become more restaurant-style, with blackboard menus

being offered as well as the traditional cabinet food, and again this is in

line with international trends.”

The rooftop car park at The Hub has also enhanced the shopping

experience for customers, with easy access in and out.

“Shoppers can drive straight up to the car park then take the lift

directly down to the food court area,” Jason says.

“Parent car parks right next to the entrance also make it easier for

those with children to load their shopping and push chair straight into

their car.”

WESTERN NEWS

time to get started

with spring planting

By RACHEL VOGAN

As the days get longer and the soil slowly

begins to warm up and dry out, the time is

right to set about growing your own greens to

feed the troops.

POTATOES

The first sprouted potatoes can go in the

ground now in the warmer climates. If your

soil isn’t ready, grow an early-crop in large

tubs or potato planters. This option will yield

just as well as growing in the ground, and enable

you to tuck the pots up against the house

to protect them from cold snaps. Early-crop

varieties to plant now include ‘Jersey Benne’,

‘Rocket’, Swift’, ‘Cliff Kidney’, or ‘Liseta’. Remember

to enrich the soil with potato food!

PEAS

Peas are a super quick and easy crop to grow,

and have the advantage of being remarkably

hardy to cold temperatures. They prefer a

fertile soil in full sun, and would benefit from

a supporting frame or series of stakes to keep

the crop off the ground.

Sow seed directly in the garden where you

wish it to grow, allowing 10-15cm between

each plant. I put two seeds in each hole.

Cover the area with mesh or netting as birds

just love to peck at fresh pea shoots as they

emerge through the soil.

Once the plants reach 15-20cm, the leaves

don’t seem to have as much appeal, so the

nets can be removed. They are a great crop

for tubs and planters, and dwarf varieties

are wonderful in hanging baskets or window

boxes. Plant plenty, as once they come ready,

you never seem to have enough.

RADISH

Crisp and zingy, everyone has room to grow

these nuggets of goodness. All you need is a

kitchen bucket, some vegetable mix and seeds,

and you’ll be in business. Why not grow them

at work if you have a sunny outdoor space?

It could make for a fun inter-office challenge,

with prizes on offer for the biggest, smallest,

ugliest, tastiest and funniest-shaped radish!

Personally, I prefer the round marble to

golf-ball-sized types, although the cylindrical

varieties do get a lot bigger and therefore give

you more bang for your buck.

Sow from seed now in rows, or try sowing

them in a circle or a pattern – kids love doing

this. Note that you won’t find radishes in

punnets, as they are very difficult to transplant

without damaging the roots, so planting in a

seed line is definitely the best way forward.

ROCKET

Rocket, or arugula, is one of the fastest-growing

and tastiest salad greens around. It is the

epitome of a low-maintenance crop; you can

scatter seed directly onto the ground and walk

away, and will be greeted with seedlings within

a few weeks, and harvestable leaves only a

fortnight to a month later. Plants are widely

available all year round. If the soil dries out in

summer, the plant will bolt and go to seed, so

perk up old, tired soil with sheep manure or

compost before planting in order to avoid this.

It’s an ideal resident for the patio and window

boxes near the kitchen, and if you keep picking

it without allowing it to flower, it will crop for

up to six months or more, as long as the soil

remains fertile and regularly watered.

re-purposed

products

for new & renovated

homes

For Canterbury people, the name Musgroves is synonymous

with recycled and pre-loved building materials and household

items that can happily find a place in their new or renovated

home.

Founded by Dave Musgrove in 1942 as a general cartage

company, it became Musgrove Bros when Dave was joined by

his brother Alf in 1946. The business operated as a cartage and

road contracting company until 1970.

The previous year, when the management was taken over by

Graeme Vickers, the company’s work had extended to include

demolition and the sale of recycled materials. Demolition

continued for a number of years, before Musgroves began to

specialise in buying and selling recycled building materials.

Since those early days, the product mix has evolved, and there

are now many different types of product carried by Musgroves,

general manager Sue Brown says. Volume has expanded significantly

too, with some 70,000 items now on the yard at any

one time, including new and pre-used.

For Musgroves, re-purposing products is at the heart of their

philosophy, Sue says.

“We’re here to help people with their renovations. Many of

our items are materials left over from building jobs, such as

insulation, roofing iron, trellis etc.

“The pre-used items people bring in include items such as

doors, ranchsliders, windows, and kitchen units. And there is a

huge selection for customers to browse through.”

Of course there are the special treasures, too. One Sue is particularly

thrilled with is a series of large oak ceiling panels, each

in four sections, which came from an architecturally designed

home, and lay unused for seven years before they were taken

to Musgroves.

Another unusual item is a large, four-door oak entertainment

cabinet, which Sue says could be an eye-catching feature piece

in someone’s new or renovated home.

People renovating older properties often need to match existing

items that are no longer being manufactured, a problem

that can often be solved at Musgroves. They have Pinex ceiling

tiles, for example, and clay roof tiles, most of which are now

not available on the market.

Those building new homes and wanting to add character to a

contemporary design may choose to install tongue and groove

flooring made from recycled timber, or use old door and cupboard

handles or locks, Sue says.

With new building products continually being developed and

replacing existing ones, the range at Musgroves is constantly

changing and growing. One example, says Sue, is ACM (aluminium

composite) panels, which are waterproof so are ideal

for bathrooms and create a unique effect.

Musgroves is located at 3 Musgrove Close, Wigram. Opening

hours are Monday to Friday 8am-5pm, Saturday 8am-4pm.

community to beneFit

from building extensions

The team hard at work.

There is a lot of hard work going on at the Hei Hei building

known as 126 On the Corner, with the local community set to

benefit.

Formerly named St Aidan’s church, the building was purchased

by the Hei Hei Broomfield Community Development Charitable

Trust three years ago for the community’s use with support

from the Christchurch City Council, and is currently undergoing

extension work.

The extensions will incorporate an office and increased storage,

with earthquake strengthening work being carried out on

the side of the building.

“This is the first of a number of planned improvements to the

building,” community development worker Tracey Buunk says.

“The men from the Southern Institute of Technology are doing

all the building work for us – at an amazing rate. They started a

month ago and we expect to be completed by Christmas. The

floor is down and in a few weeks the framing will be erected

and the roof put on.

“The extension is being generously supported by Council,

the local Community Board, the Lotteries Commission, R.A.

Shearing’s, Mitre 10, Action Scaffolding, Fahey’s Fencing and SIT,”

Tracey says.

“The cost will be greatly reduced by the donations of time,

materials, equipment and funds. Many thanks to everyone for

their contributions.”

Activities 126 On The Corner provides for the community

include a cooking group, a variety group, a walking group, tai

chi, men’s group, tea and tots group, fun fit group, community

lunches and Kix Taekwondo.

First aid courses and church services are also held in the building,

and it is available for hire for private functions.

Two weeks ago, the trust’s sheds were broken into and the Kix

Taekwondo equipment was stolen.

“We are very saddened that this has happened,” Tracey says,

“and we are now looking at how we can replace the $3200

worth of equipment the group needs for when it meets two or

three times a week.”

As an employee of Anglican Care Community Development

and a trustee on the board, Tracey is keen to find out what

other activities the community would like to see being run in

the building.

“We want to know where the gaps are in our community and

the ways we can continue to grow together for the benefit of

local people.

“We have a group of volunteers that make it possible to offer

all that we do and allow us to increase what we offer. Without

their commitment 126 On The Corner would be unable to

local gym changing

the way fitness is delivered

Culture Fitness in Halswell and Wigram are

aiming to change the way fitness is delivered

so everyone can feel comfortable and get

the results they deserve.

“We are trying to change the perception

of what a gym looks like in our community.

We believe the fitness industry is a service

industry, not just an equipment provider like

most gyms have become,” owner Ricki says.

“Our Personal Trainers believe that support

and motivation should not be an added

extra and they are always happy to help. The

best thing is that Culture Fitness has the

lowest price of any gym in the area.

“Another big difference is that we don’t

have mirrors, we are for real people wanting

to feel better and get fitter, not to stand

around looking at yourself,” Ricki says.

“People spend lots of time in front of the

mirrors at other gyms and it’s uncomfortable

– you should feel comfortable at a gym

not judged.

“Flexibility and convenience are also at the

forefront of our thinking. We have structured

Culture Fitness in such a way that you

should never have to wait for equipment

and still get a great workout no matter what

time you come in.

“One aspect of how we do this is our

Express Fitness Lanes where you can get

in and out knowing you have had a great

workout in just 35 minutes.”

Culture Fitness is also one of the only gyms

in the west to incorporate the My Zone

heart rate monitoring system, Ricki says.

“This ensures you are working at the level

that is right for you according to your personal

fitness level.

“Culture Fitness really is very different, but

you will need to see it for yourself.”

World cup Fever

about to hit hornby

Volunteer tradesmen spent many hours getting

the clubrooms ready for the visitors.

There are exciting times ahead for the Hornby Rugby League

Club. Shortly they will host The Kiwis Rugby League Team for

training sessions ahead of their World Cup match against Scotland

at AMI Stadium on November 4, 2017.

“In April this year we offered to host the Kiwis for their training

sessions,” club president Brent Tomlinson says.

“The Rugby League World Cup organisers, New Zealand Rugby

League, Canterbury Rugby League, our own club and the Christchurch

City Council all got on board.”

A lot of work needed to be done to prepare the club’s facilities

for the visitors, Brent says.

“The council was responsible for preparing the grounds, and the

club’s role was to upgrade the clubrooms. Our changing rooms

needed a complete makeover to bring them up to international

standards.

“The changing rooms have been relined and repainted and the

showers have been completely refurbished. This has involved

hours and hours of work by volunteer tradesmen to get it all

done.

“It was also an expensive project, and funds have come from

fundraising, grants, a number of sponsors and local club supporters,”

Brent says.

“We would like to thank Keith Burgess, Peter Lawrie, Ho

Hogg, Kent Ramsay, Craig Dunn, Mike Dormer, Mark Allison of

Independent Fisheries, Jason Hatton of Hatton Plastering, Dean

Brewster of Brewster Building, Air Rescue and CERT for their

support.”

The project has also required sacrifices from the Hornby Rugby

League members themselves.

“We haven’t been able to play games at our home field all

season, but that’s how committed we are to having the Kiwis at

Hornby. Kiwis’ coach David Kidwell is a Hornby Rugby League

Junior and we are proud that he is bringing the Kiwis to his

home club.”

Work on the clubrooms started in early April, with the finishing

touches being put on the facilities just last week.

expertise built on family heritage

For Christchurch real estate agent Pip Sutton,

real estate is a family heritage spanning

four generations over approximately 93

years.

It all started with her great-grandfather Frederick

in 1924, out of Lyttelton. Her grandfather,

Fred, continued working in Lyttelton,

setting up an office in London Street, which

still stands today.

Pip’s father Dave became a partner in Simes

real estate in Christchurch in the early 1970s

until 2005 when it was sold for retirement

purposes. From the age of just 18 months Pip

became part of it, with many early memories

of attending property auctions, visiting building

sites and regular office visits where the

auction gavel and lectern were often used as

play toys.

“I grew up in the business,” she says. “During

school holidays I worked in Dad’s office. I

spent a lot of time relieving as receptionist,

in accounts and assisting putting marketing

packages and the likes together, oh and lots

of Sunday drives around new developments

within the city and Lyttelton Harbour with

the family.”

On leaving school Pip gained a Bachelor of

Commerce & Management degree with a

marketing major. She gained valuable experience

and skills working as a top sales and

marketer for multi-national market leaders

within New Zealand and the UK.

In 2005, Pip returned to Christchurch to

commence her real estate career under the

guidance and wisdom of her father.

“This involved long hours of intensive learning.

He passed on an in-depth understanding

of Christchurch’s land and development right

through from the early Lyttelton days. This

included understanding district plans, zoning,

the development process. How to research

properties deeply to uncover potentials for

new owners. How to listen to people and

respond to their needs.

“He passed on that little bit of magic, which

had been handed down from three previous

generations of learnings from great depressions,

World Wars and within my career, the

Global Financial Crisis and pre and postearthquake

environments.”

In 2014, Pip joined Ray White Real Estate,

because she liked their in-depth attention

to real estate law and management style

at the Cashmere office, plus being a family

brand itself spanning back to the early1900s,

she recognised the more caring nature of

the brand, perhaps due to over 100 years of

learnings being passed down too.

“you are working with people during a milestone

time in their life, they are often already

under stress. A real estate agent’s job is to

assist in relieving the stress, not adding to it.”

Pip has become a successful and highly

regarded real estate salesperson across

the city. For her, the most enjoyable and

important part of the process is to spend

time with both buyers and sellers, using her

in-depth knowledge of the Canterbury property

environment to assist in achieving the

best possible outcome for her clients.

As she puts it: “My measure of success is the

quality of the results I achieve for my clients,

not the number of houses I sell. I would

rather take more time getting my client into

a better position than collecting listings and

making quick sales.”

Turning the sod at the new site

The blessing ceremony

These are significant times for the longestablished

Sockburn School in Springs Road,

Hornby. This year the school is celebrating its

60th anniversary, and next year will mark the

first step of a major change.

In January 2018, the school will be given a new

name – Wigram Primary, and this will be in

preparation for the school’s relocation to the

Wigram Primary site on the Runway in January

2019, principal Heather Walkinshaw says.

Detailed design of the new school is currently

underway, with construction to be carried out

by Southbase.

“Southbase has had recent experience with

new school builds, and will bring their expertise

to the build,” Ms Walkinshaw says. “Work

on the new school is expected to start in

January 2018.”

The new site was blessed by representatives

of the local Taumutu Rununga on August 8,

with the ceremony attended by the then Associate

Minister of Education, Tim Macindoe.

The school will also have a new uniform with

a new logo, which is now being embroidered

on to the new uniforms.

The logo, which features two kahu facing each

other with the runway through the middle, has

been designed to represent the history of the

area. Kahu were prevalent in the area and the

runway recalls the history of the air force at

Wigram.

second and third generations,” staff member

Jude Ingram says.

“It will also be the last of these events for us

as the existing Sockburn School. We are holding

a range of events on Friday, November 3.

These include visiting learning spaces, photos,

afternoon tea and a dinner at the Wigram

Base Conference Centre.

“The school has always been well supported

by the community, as one of our parents

said recently: ‘The school has had a lot of

long-serving staff, which is a reflection of the

loyalty to the school. The school has a great

sense of community. Everyone works very well

together. The staff are dedicated to the success

of all students.’”

LOOKING BACK…

The first headmaster of Sockburn Public

School when it was established in1957 was Mr

A. R. Chambers. A photo from the time shows

there were 11 teachers, a clerical assistant and

a nurse.

An aerial view dated January 1957 shows

how little development there was at both the

airbase and in the surrounding area.

The first school committee was formed in

1957 and the iconic school pool, which was

opened in1961, is still used by the students.

The Wigram Airbase families had a long connection

with the school until Wigram Aerodrome

was closed in 1995 following the CFS’

relocation to RNZAF Ohakeatwo years earlier.

At that point Sockburn School roll dropped

by about 80 students. Some school relocatable

buildings were then removed to Hagley High.

Waterloo entrance

momentum continues With

ongoing development at business park

Caffé and Pocket Park

Hornby’s Waterloo Business Park continues to

grow at an impressive rate, bringing increased

business activity to the area. In driving through

the park, there is a palpable sense of activity

and momentum owing to the large number of

sites currently under construction.

“Waterloo reached its tipping point sometime

in the past 12 months,” assistant development

manager Joel Webber says, “where we gained a

critical mass of sales and construction activity

that marked a transition from large, burgeoning

industrial subdivision to an active and

dynamic business environment.

“On the back of this transition, the focus

of the development team at Waterloo has

squarely shifted to completion of the two

remaining stages of development,” Mr Webber

says.

“Titles for the 6.3ha Stage 5 of development

are expected in mid to late October. Earthworks

on the final stage of development, the

7.3ha Stage 6, is well underway with titles

expected to issue in early 2018.

“On the periphery of our own on-site works,

we’re eagerly anticipating the completion

of NZTA’s Pound Road realignment works

towards the end of the year. This will be a key

milestone in the ongoing evolution of Waterloo

Business Park, delivering outstanding

roading network connectivity to our owners

and occupiers.”

The freight and logistics fraternity has identified

and acted upon this opportunity with

several transport-based businesses having

established in close proximity to this future

arterial route. These businesses have futureproofed

themselves over the medium to long

term and are positioned well for growth and

success, Mr Webber says.

There are currently 14 businesses established

and operating within the Business Park with

a further 10 sites under construction. In

recognition of the changing dynamics within

the Business Park, Waterloo recently launched

its inaugural owners and occupiers networking

event.

“We believe that Waterloo can be, and should

be a business micro-community,” Mr Webber

says. “We’ve seen first-hand the internal

business opportunities that take shape when

owners and occupiers at Waterloo Business

Park get in the same room as one another.

We want to encourage and nurture a strong

business community at Waterloo and we see

a regular networking event as a terrific way

to foster and develop understanding of, and

familiarity with, the other businesses on-site

and promote internal business transactions

within the Business Park.”

The philosophy behind the regular networking

events is that each quarter a different business

hosts the event on site. The host business

has the opportunity to give an overview of

what they do and undertake a tour of their

premises before breaking out into informal

networking over drinks and nibbles.

“Our inaugural networking event was hosted

by Hagley Building Products back in June and

was a resounding success. The second event

was held on September 19, and generously

hosted by Cardinal Freight.”

southern motorWay

work on track

Despite an unusually wet winter, work on the $195 million

Christchurch Southern Motorway – Stage 2 (CSM2) project

has not been held up, with more than 300,000 cubic metres of

earth moved, two new local roads built and the first of eight

bridges almost complete.

Principal project manager Geoff Griffiths says people can

expect to see more changes over the coming months as work

ramps up.

Mr Griffiths noted that on Wednesday August 30, two

180-tonne cranes put the final four ‘Super-T Beams’ that make

up the Main South Road Bridge into place.

“The structure, which will take Main South Road traffic up

and over the motorway, is made up of 16 locally made precast

beams, which range from 30 to 35 metres long and weigh up

to 68 tonnes each. It will be the first of the project’s eight

bridges to be finished,” he said.

Along with the Main South Road Bridge, the CSM2 team have

also started constructing the Waterholes Road and Trent

Road bridges and built two new local roads - Tiptree Lane and

Manion Road.

“These new roads will give people access to their homes and

local businesses, and in the case of Manion Road, allow the

CSM2 team to carry on with work to four-lane the motorway

from Weedons Road towards Curraghs Road,” Mr Griffiths

said.

“Meanwhile, at the city end of the project, John Paterson Drive

is being realigned to join with Halswell Junction Road. This

work will continue until the end of the year when the new

alignment is expected to open to traffic.”

Mr Griffiths said people travelling around the Selwyn District,

near the project, should expect detours and road closures at

times as work on the project continues.

“Traffic will be closely monitored to try to reduce disruption

and delays; however, people should plan ahead and allow extra

travel time as work continues on the CSM2.

“We would also like to remind people to obey the traffic

management that is in place while the project is underway.

The speed restrictions and road closures are in place for your

safety as well as the safety of our crews.”

The Christchurch Southern Motorway (Stage One, completed,

and Stage Two, underway) is expected to halve travel time

between Rolleston and Christchurch at peak times from 30

minutes to 15 and reduce fatal and serious crashes by 40 per

cent.

Stage Two is on track to be open to traffic in early 2020.

Why just cuts

The difference between a good

haircut and a bad haircut is three

weeks! Heard that one? yes, it’s

out there but it doesn’t apply to

a Style Cut from Just Cuts at The

Hub Hornby. Why?

Firstly, all their stylists are fully

qualified, with many years’ experience

in the industry. But more

importantly all their cuts are

supported by a seven-day guarantee!

So, if for any reason you are

not 100 per cent happy, go back

within seven days and the issue

will be rectified free of charge.

“We offer this because we are

confident with our services, and

not all salons offer this,” says

Team Leader Michael Turner.

“And then there’s our level of

service. Unsolicited testimonials

not only praise the haircuts, but

the service, attitude of our stylists

and the happy environment

to enjoy your haircut. That could

be why we have over 70 per cent

of clients returning to our salon,

and so many recommending us to

their families and friends.”

One such happy client, Trina, is

pictured here when she won the

August Promotion Gift Basket

(valued at $300) just for buying a

product.

“Created exclusively for Just

Cuts, the Justice Professional

range is amazing,” Michael says.

“Paraben free, organically created,

you can just imagine how quickly that adds up.

oFFers options

for treating causes

not just symptoms

Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired?

You may be surprised to find one of New Zealand’s

most highly qualified and experienced

health care experts in Hornby.

At Stay Well Pharmacy on Shands Road, Naturopathic

Pharmacist Mark Webster provides

patients with options over and above standard

medicinal and pharmaceutical care.

“Integrated Medicine is about taking the best

of everything,” Mark says. “By looking at diet,

lifestyle, exercise and daily routines, I can

provide solutions that treat the cause of your

discomfort. Not just the symptoms.”

For Mark, this means continually studying

to keep up with the latest advancements in

healthcare and medicine.

“At the moment, I’m working towards my

Master of Science in Integrated Medicine

through George Washington University in

America. Last year I completed a five year Fellowship

in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine,

having been a qualified pharmacist for 26

years.”

Mark’s approach to Integrated Medicine is

attracting national attention. Having been a

finalist for the past two years, in July Mark

won the 2017 New Zealand Pharmacy Award

for the Best Complementary Healthcare

Campaign and this year he won the Kiwibank

New Zealander of the year Local Hero Award.

While he doesn’t mind the recognition, his

main motivation is seeing his patients find a

new lease on life.

“Everyone is different. What works for one

person may not work for another. By bringing

together advice from a patient’s doctor, dietitian,

physiotherapist, or other health professional,

I want to support people in finding a

healthier way of living that works for them,”

says Mark.

Healthy solutions start with quality choices,

so Mark only stocks products, vitamins and

minerals that are backed by peer-reviewed,

evidence-based research.

On Tuesdays, Mark runs private consultations

at the Pharmacy for you to discuss your health

concerns. From that, he can design you a personalised

wellness plan to help you live well,

and stay well.

Initial appointments are 60 minutes and additional

appointments are typically half an hour.

Mark’s training covers a wide range of conditions,

but he has a special passion for skin

conditions, gastro-intestinal issues, hormonal

complaints or if you are simply sick and tired

of constantly feeling sick or tired. Bookings are

essential.

If you would like to find out what a difference

working with a Naturopathic Pharmacist can

make to your health, call and make an appointment

to see Mark at Stay Well Pharmacy.

travel bags

for every destination

As the name suggests, Just Bagz in Dressmart

Hornby is filled with hundreds of bags, with

the main focus being on travel bags of every

description.

This family-run business, owned and operated

by Graham and Julieann Griffiths, specialises

in quality luggage from leading manufacturers

including Samsonite, Eminent and Riccardo,

with 90 per cent of the stock being brought in

by the couple.

Graham has been in the industry for over 40

years, covering manufacturing, wholesaling and

retailing, so with that experience and knowledge

he can advise customers on the right bag

to suit their requirements and budget.

The bag purchased may depend on how many

people will be using it, for example a family,

how they are travelling – whether by road

or air, and how much they want to take with

them, or bring back.

The first choice customers have, is between

hard and soft luggage and this comes down

to personal preference, Graham says. In both

types there is a huge selection of sizes, styles

and fashion colours – with modern luggage

also being much more user-friendly. Ninety

per cent of bags now have four wheels, making

them very easy to manoeuvre and transport.

Just Bagz also has a range of travel accessories

including TSA locks and adaptors, passport

holders and luggage labels.

There is also a wide selection of backpacks

– adult sizes in various styles, and children’s

styles with novelty designs of their favourite

cartoon characters.

Also on display are wallets, shoulder bags and

handbags in both leather and man-made materials,

in a wide range of prices.

So, call in for a browse, and have a chat to

Graham or Julieann about what you are looking

for. They will be very happy to give you

some advice for your travel needs.

residential groWth

set to continue in the west

The residential population of Christchurch’s western suburbs

has grown significantly since the Canterbury earthquakes of

2010 and 2011, and that growth looks set to continue for

some time.

A number of subdivisions have already been developed across

the area in response to that growth, with more coming on

stream over the next few years.

One new one being developed is an extension to the existing

Country Palms subdivision in Halswell, which was established

prior to the earthquakes by development company Suburban

Estates.

“That one was well received and sold quickly,” company manager

Tracey Watson says.

“The new development is smaller, with 100 lots. The first stage,

comprising 33 lots, has just been released, with the remainder

to be released over the next couple of years.”

Section sizes range from 400sqm to 700sqm, with access

through the existing Country Palms development.

“The subdivision has access to good infrastructure, with the

opportunity to have access to Halswell Junction Road, and

there are good facilities all within a kilometre,” Ms Watson

says.

A newcomer to the Christchurch market, Avanda Group, is

developing a site at 197 Halswell Junction Road. Planning and

design work has started and civil engineering work will get

underway once designs are finalised, marketing manager Sarah

Davidson says.

The existing plan for the development includes 197 lots, with

section sizes ranging from 300sqm to 650sqm.

“There is an allowance within the plan for a small number of

integrated housing lots, should the demand for such products

develop over the course of the sales programme,” Ms Davidson

says.

She says Avanda has spent a number of months speaking to

active parties in the market, and listening to what purchasers

want.

“This information has been at the forefront of our decision

making. We are in the process of appointing a local urban

design and landscape architect team to assist in the design of

the layout and the treatment of outdoor spaces to make 197

Halswell Junction Road a welcoming community,” Ms Davidson

says.

“Avanda chose to develop in Halswell as it is a growing and

popular community that we wanted to be part of. There is a

demand for good-sized sections in the area.

“We hope this will be the first of many developments in

Christchurch for Avanda.”

Several other subdivisions in the area have had council consent.

There are 205 lots over three subdivisions in Awatea Rd, Carrs

Rd and Halswell Junction Rd.

A further 634 lots across four sub divisions in Sutherlands Rd,

Halswell Junction Rd, and Milns Rd are currently subject to a

subdivision consent application.

a chance to see,

touch & feel latest building products

The brand-new Design Centre set up last month

by Jennian Homes in Main South Road Hornby

provides a showcase for industry-leading building

products that the public can “see, touch and feel”,

says co-owner Dwayne Prendergast.

“This is a completely different concept,” Dwayne

says. “People can see a lot more in our Design

Centre than they can in a show home.

“The product selection includes state-of-the-art

kitchens, bathrooms, plumbing products, exteriors

claddings and much more, with all the proven

brands represented.”

Jennian Homes sales staff are available on site to

talk to visitors about any of the products, and discuss

how they can be incorporated into a Jennian

Homes design.

“We offer a range of standard plans, but we enjoy

designing bespoke homes for clients to suit their

section and their ideas. As our slogan says, ‘your

personality, our expertise’.”

Dwayne says Jennian Homes is unique in the building

industry in Canterbury, in that the company directors

– himself and project manager Paul Jenkins

– have hands-on involvement with every project.

“We work closely with our clients so they can talk

to us at any time during the design and construction

process.”

Dwayne says there are “great opportunities” for

people to build homes now in Christchurch and

across Canterbury, with plenty of land opportunities.

“Our team are working closely with all developers

to be aware of the available land as it comes to the

market.”

Jennian Homes is opening two more show homes

this year – one in the Faringdon sub-division in

Rolleston, which will open at Labour Weekend, and

the other in Rangiora, which will open just before

Christmas.

A well-established home-building company, Jennian

Homes was launched in New Zealand 35 years

ago, and has been in the Canterbury market for

more than 20 years.

Their new Design Centre is located at 212 Main

South Road, Hornby, and is open seven days a

week from 9am-5pm.

the trickle-doWn

effect

By ROSS KIDDIE

I’m a big motorsport fan, Formula One in

particular.

Even though Ferrari as a team is giving Mercedes-Benz

a run for its money this season,

the latter has dominated the sport in recent

years.

Ultimately, that success trickles down to sales

from the showroom floor. That is certainly

showing here in New Zealand. Mercedes-Benz

is dominating the luxury car market and I

don’t see that changing any time soon, simply

because the raft of models and variants within

each model range means there is a vehicle for

all tastes and budgets.

There is also a large proliferation of sporty

models and the performance arm of Mercedes-Benz

– AMG – has kept up the pace

with high output models sitting in tandem

within the line-up.

I’m not sure how inspired AMG is from Formula

One, but you can rest assured that some

technology from the sport flows down to

street vehicles.

The latest AMG model to come my way was

the C63S cabriolet, which has a twin-turbocharged

4-litre V8 engine delivering monster

power outputs of 375kW and 700Nm of

torque.

Even though these figures are highly impressive,

the cabriolet can easily be driven sedately.

It is at home at city speeds in a similar fashion

to its four and six-cylinder counterparts. There

are driver-selectable engine management protocols

that can be set to many varying requirements.

I even preferred the standard mode,

which like all big V8 engines, means a relaxed,

unstressed operating manner.

However, when sport mode is selected, there

is a constant solid surge of power that seems

endless in its delivery. Acceleration is vivid – a

standstill to 100km/h time of 4.2sec is wickedly

fast, along with a 3.2sec overtaking time

(80km/h to 120km/h).

What I enjoyed most about the C63S’ performance

is the sound that accompanies its delivery.

It is loud and there’s even a button that

enhances more noise; a backfire on gearshift

and throttle blip on downshift is infectious to

listen to.

On that subject, drive is channelled to the

rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic

transmission. It is a direct shift-type and how

it harnesses so much power and torque yet

arranges the gears so smoothly amazes me.

There are steering-wheel-mounted paddles

for the enthusiastic driver, and management

protocols, which quickly identify throttle

percentage.

The C63S cabriolet sits on huge rubber with

wheels an inch smaller in diameter up front

than those on the rear. The sport specification

Michelin Pilot tyres (255/35 x 19in and 285/30

x 20in) have huge grip, yet they are constantly

tested when the power goes on. Thankfully, the

traction control system is as good as any I’ve

experienced before; there’s just a little bit of

freedom within the system so that the driver

Price – Mercedes-Benz C63S cabriolet, $189,900

Configuration – V8, rear-wheel-drive, 3982cc, 375kW, 700Nm, seven-speed automatic

Performance – 0-100km/h, 4.2sec

Fuel usage – 9.4l/100km

can experience the feel of grip loss at the

rear under hard acceleration, but the squirm

and oversteer is moderated without sudden

intervention.

One of the benefits of quality tyres is the feel

through the steering, the C63S cabriolet has

accurate turn-in along with strong feel – you

can point and clip apexes delightfully. It must

be said, though, the C-Class in this form is so

competent it makes driving easy, the suspension

is informative and that creates an involving

driving experience. It is also rigid within

the body structure.

Like most premium manufacturers, Mercedes-

Benz and AMG haven’t lost sight of the need

to look after the environment, and even

though the engine has big cylinders to feed,

the fuel usage statistics are still realistic.

Mercedes-Benz claims a 9.4-litre per 100km

(30mpg) combined cycle average. At 100km/h I

recorded an 8l/100km (35mpg) instantaneous

readout along with a 11.2l/100km (27mpg)

average over five days.

However, a buyer who chooses C63S specification

in any vehicle will understand that the

quad-camshaft V8 likes to be released and fuel

economy wouldn’t be a priority.

At $189,000 the C-Class cab in this form

comes at a premium price but it is chock full

of goodies and, as you would expect from

Mercedes-Benz, it wants for nothing.

I’ve been quite spoilt recently with a lot of

German product filtering through the press

fleet – as well as soft and hard-tops from

other brands – serving to prove the convertible

market is showing no sign of dwindling.

I’ve long said Christchurch doesn’t have the

best weather for open-air motoring and I stick

to that statement; that being the case, the

coupe would be the car for me, but for anyone

who gets to experience that amazing engine,

there’s a chance they will be simply over-awed.

By ROSS KIDDIE

I’m on one of my favourite high country roads. The stretch

includes short straights mixed with a combination of tight and

open corners.

The car is responding delightfully to the way it is being steered

and I’m being entertained by its handling and balance. I’m

thinking that this could be the best evaluation drive I’ve had for

2017.

No, I’m not driving a sports car or anything exotic. In fact, I’m

in one of New Zealand’s budget models – a Mazda2 to be

exact.

The reason why I’m so smitten is not because the Mazda2 is

fast or exciting, its performance is honest and it works hard

to please through the chassis, but because the series is priced

for affordability and in terms of all-round value for money it’s a

real attention-grabber.

Not only does it drive purposefully at all speeds, you also get a

lot of kit on Mazda2, and for a car that lists under $30k, it is a

rather special purchase.

The test car was in Limited specification and it sits at $29,695;

an entry-level GLX variant comes in at $21,945 while a GSX

comes in at $24,945. I’m picking the GSX would be the car for

me but the Limited variant does get a lot of kit, features which

are included elsewhere in the Mazda line-up.

Such are the changes for 2017, the Mazda2 could certainly be

described as having a facelift. There aren’t a lot of cosmetic

enhancements, but there are new side mirrors, grille and wheel

changes.

The Automotive Lamp Specialists

On the inside the dash panel graphics have been enhanced for

clarity, there’s a new centre console display, while trim materials

have been upgraded.

More importantly, there have been chassis changes to promote

the driving experience and that’s what I noticed during the

time I tackled the exit from the Waimakariri River gorge. The

most significant development is the addition of G-Vectoring

Control, which improves handling and stability especially during

emergency avoidance manoeuvres.

In Limited specification that also combines with a suite of

other collision avoidance technologies such as smart city brake

support and driver attention alert.

Together, these functions provide the Mazda2 driver with

confidence at all speeds. You don’t need to be moving along at

pace; in everyday situations the newcomer feels in control of

itself and has a decisive feel from behind the wheel, which will

lure drivers of all ages.

That is the reason why I like the car’s balance so much. It just

feels right from behind the wheel and you feel so much part of

the car. That’s an aspect Mazda is building into all of its range,

and along with the superb feel of quality that accompanies

it, it’s no surprise that the new Mazda2 appeals,as does the

company’s enture line-up in general. I’ve driven several from

the manufacturer recently, and it’s fair to say the company has

upped the ante in terms of desirability.

Under the bonnet sits a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated engine,

which drives out of a conventional six-speed automatic

transmission. I mention that because Mazda hasn’t developed

its turbocharging techniques any further and I guess it doesn’t

need to. It claims 81kW and 141Nm from the engine, and with

a 4.9l/100km (57mpg) combined cycle fuel usage claim the

figures are healthy.

There is also a sport mode the driver can activate for busier

engine behaviour, and if you couple that to a manual sequential

gearshift function, the sporty feel of Mazda2 will come into its

own.

I left the evaluation car mostly in normal mode and enjoyed

the interaction between engine and gearbox. It is a traditional

way of driving and for that reason I warmed to it, changes are

crisp and smooth and the engine stays on song. Even though

the area of maximum torque is high at 4000rpm, the Mazda2 is

light and it doesn’t take a lot of energy to move it quickly (0-

100km/h in 9.5sec) – the engine is unstrained and responsive.

The Limited rides on 185/60 x 16in Dunlop tyres, and even

though their footprint isn’t wide they have a solid tenure with

the road surface and provide the driver with strong feedback

as to how they are reacting under pressure.

The Mazda2 has reasonable freedom of movement within the

suspension, the spring and damper rates favour the uneven

surface of Christchurch’s roads, while occupant comfort has

been an engineering priority.

Christchurch is a tough market for Mazda2. There’s some fairly

hefty competition here from Suzuki and its clever marketing

campaign. However, Mazda also has a free servicing programme,

which is most tempting – three years or 100,000km.

All factors considered, the Mazda2 is a compelling buying

proposition.

early bookings provide best deals -

travel team says

Next year is open and now is the time to start planning your

2018 holiday, says Hornby House of Travel’s Paula Waldeck.

“Families planning overseas holidays in 2018 are encouraged to

book early to get the best deals,” Paula says.

“The school holidays are the busiest and most expensive time

to travel, so by booking early people can reduce the cost.”

Paula and her expert team at HOT have plenty of suggestions

for customers looking for an overseas holiday that won’t break

the bank.

“For example, the Gold Coast is great value for money,” Paula

says, “and anywhere in the South Pacific is also a good choice

for warmth during the New Zealand winter, plus there is usually

no time difference so that makes it easier with younger

children.”

For families with teenagers, she suggests a trip to Vietnam and

Cambodia, where they can learn about different cultures and

the different ways of life in that region.

For those who are excited by the idea of river or ocean cruising

and calling into exotic places, HOT suggests one of the

many multi-destination cruises on offer.

“There are ships for all budgets and so many itineraries to

choose from around the world,” Paula says.

Europe is always one of the most popular destinations for Kiwi

travellers, with Croatia currently at the top of the list. Paula

suggests island hopping on a small cruise ship around the Adriatic

Sea with a stay in the ever-popular Dubrovnik.

Italy is another highly favoured country to visit, and there is a

range of itinerary ideas for travellers going there, including villa

stays, cycling and walking tours, foodie tours or a Vespa tour

around quaint Italian villages.

For first-time travellers, the team at HOT Hornby suggests a

multi-country guided journey.

“Travellers get to enjoy local experiences, and they have a

good balance of time with the group and time to do things on

their own. This is a great way to get a taste of Europe,” Paula

says.

Canada is also a popular choice with HOT customers, with a

train trip across the Rocky Mountains providing a way to enjoy

the beautiful scenery in comfort. The trip is available from April

until October.

“There is also the opportunity to combine this with an Alaskan

cruise, making for an even more exciting holiday,” Paula says.

She and her team look forward to helping customers plan

their 2018 holiday, so call in to their store at 40 Carmen Road,

or book an appointment by phoning 344-3070.

NURSE MAUDE

Maudes on Trade Me

open 24 hours a day,

seven days a week.

Selling almost everything from antiques

to sporting and household items, Maudes on

Trade Me allows customers to shop online

in the comfort of their own home and raise

money for the Nurse Maude Hospice at the

same time.

At any one time, Maudes has around 250

items up for auction, and almost every one

of them starts at just $1 reserve with rare

and collectable pieces soon reaching their

optimum price.

While the Nurse Maude Hospice shops

sell fashion clothing and accessories Maudes

on Trade Me sells almost everything else

and buyers can come from anywhere in the

country.

With more than 200

items a week being listed,

Maudes on Trade Me

is very dependent on a

steady stream of donated

goods.

“Please dive into your

cupboards and garage

for that unused sports

equipment, jewellery,

china, glass, silverware,

furniture, whiteware

- in fact pretty much

anything in good saleable

condition,” says Sue

Bramwell, GM Marketing at Nurse Maude,

“and we can turn it into the funds needed to

provide hospice palliative care and support

free of charge to patients and their families

in the Nurse Maude Hospice.”

If you need larger items or household lots

collected then email trademe.volunteers@

nursemaude.org.nz or call them on 375 4643

to arrange pick up.

Smaller items may be dropped off at any

of the Nurse Maude Hospice shops around

town seven days a week.

“It’s a perfect way to support the Nurse

Maude Hospice while giving your home its

annual spring clean,” says Sue.

Dusting off the Elvis

track for a good cause

• By Emily O’Connell

ELVIS WILL be in Hornby on Saturday

to raise funds for poliomyelitis.

The Rotary Club of Avonhead is putting

on Another Great Variety Tribute Show

to raise money for people suffering from

poliomyelitis – a crippling and potentially

deadly infectious disease.

Organiser Graeme Wallis said the

money raised from the show will go to

PolioPlus, an initiative started by Rotary

International.

PolioPlus is helping immunise people

in the hope of ending poliomyelitis worldwide.

“It exists in five countries at the moment

– Pakistan, Afghanistan, India,

Nigeria and Syria – which spells out the

word PAINS. It is diminishing rapidly but

Rotary International have got some huge

support, which means if we raise $5000

they will double it,” Mr Wallis said.

The show will have music from Elvis

Presley, Neil Diamond and John Rowles

as well as dancing.

Mr Wallis said the show is special

because of how much support the community

has given.

He said this year was the first time the

Rotary Club of Avonhead offered the musicians

some money for their talents.

“We made the decision that each player

would get $100. Anyway, when I went up

to them, immediately three of them said

‘oh no it’s alright, I don’t want anything,’”

Mr Wallis said. “I think the arts are incredibly

Sometimes they don’t get the recognition

they should because they deserve better

audiences,” Mr Wallis said.

Shave for a cure

Jesse Northcoat with Hairdresser from Hames Hairdressing

Congratulations to all those who

participated in Burnside High School’s 2017

‘Shave For a Cure’. On Friday the 25th of

August, a brave group of 20 students shaved

their hair to raise funds as well as awareness

for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand.

This organisation ensures all individuals and

families who are sadly faced with Leukaemia

& Blood Cancer are well supported. The

shave took place at lunchtime creating a

supportive atmosphere with many students

helping out. Large support from Burnside

High School’s community saw the team raise

over $5,900! A huge thanks goes to Hames

Hairdressing, Gray Ryburn, Jess Cliffe and

all the helpers for allowing this event to be

a success! Burnside High School is looking

forward to ‘Shave For a Cure’ 2018!

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

SPRING ONION PANCAKES

Ingredients

250g Plain flour, plus extra for

dusting

80 ml Boiling water

70 ml Cold water

2 Tbsp Vegetable oil

1 bunch Spring onion, finely

chopped

1 tsp Sesame seeds

Directions

Put the flour in a bowl and

add the boiling water, stirring

with chopsticks. This is called

‘burning’ the flour. Give it a mix

and once it has cooled enough,

continue mixing with your hands.

Add the cold water, a quarter at

a time, and continue mixing.

When mixed thoroughly, take

the dough out of the bowl and

knead on a flour-covered bench.

You may need to add more flour

as you knead. Continue kneading

until the dough is shiny and your

hands and the bench are clear of

dough.

Roll the dough into a ball and

place in a bowl covered with cling

film. Seat aside for about half an

hour. Take a piece of dough about

the size of your fist and roll it out

on the bench into a circle about

15cm in diameter. Spread some

vegetable oil over the dough, then

sprinkle over the chopped spring

onion. Sprinkle over the sesame

seeds.

Roll the pancake into a tight

cylinder, then coil it around into

a circle (like a caterpillar rolling

itself into a circle). With a rolling

pin, flatten this circle into a

pancake again.

Add oil to your frying pan and

heat to a medium-high heat. Add

the pancake to the frying pan and

fry until golden, then flip and

cook the other side until golden

and crisp. Serve as a side dish

with chilli oil or chilli sauce or

your favourite Asian-inspired dip.

Also great at breakfast time.

APPLE AND PORK MINCE

PINWHEELS

Ingredients

500g Pork mince

2 tsp Sesame oil

1 tsp Chicken stock, powder

1 tsp Celery salt

2 tsp Fennel seeds

2 Tbsp Fresh parsley

1 tsp Fresh dill

2 cloves Garlic

1 Onion

½ Ambrosia Apple, finely diced

with skin on

2 Eggs, one for egg wash

750g Flaky puff pastry, ready

rolled

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C

fan bake.

Combine the first 10

ingredients in a bowl.

Mix in one egg.

Divide mixture evenly onto

four sheets of pastry, taking care

to ensure you leave some space

on each edge (about 2.5cm) for

easy rolling.

Lightly beat remaining egg for

egg wash and brush the edges to

help seal the pinwheel.

Roll each sheet from the long

end and cut each into four

pinwheels with a sharp knife.

Place on baking paper on

oven tray and egg wash the

pinwheels.

Sprinkle on sesame seeds.

Bake for 30min until golden.

Melanoma Deadlier

Than Road Fatalities

Summer is around the corner, and it brings with it the

temptation for some to “pre-tan” using artificial UV

tanning equipment; but is it really worth the risk?

More people die from melanoma

each year than are killed

annually in road crashes.

This statistic was part of

a comprehensive submission made to

parliament’s Health Select Committee which

is considering outlawing sunbeds for people

under the age of 18 years.

The submission was made by Accuro

Health Insurance, established in the 1970s as

a private insurer for the public health sector.

Today it trades as a private health insurer

with a widespread, general membership.

Accuro, in supporting the submission

made by the New Zealand Dermatological

Society, pointed to a New Zealand Cancer

Society figure of 324 deaths from melanoma

in 2010. According to the NZ Road Transport

Agency there were 253 road deaths for the 12

months to February 2014 and 303 for the 12

months to February 2015.

In highlighting the figure, CEO Geoff

Annals emphasised the serious nature of

the disease and his submission drew the

committee’s attention to the financial, social

and personal costs of skin cancer.

He quoted Cancer Society figures which

report that New Zealand, along with

Australia, has amongst the highest melanoma

rates in the world. In 2010 melanoma was

the fourth most common cancer with 2,341

registered cases and the sixth most common

cause of death from cancer.

The Cancer Society further reports that

skin cancer currently costs this country

about $123 million annually.

Geoff Annals says research by the Centre

for Disease Control showed the introduction

of seat belts reduced serious crash related

injuries and deaths by about half and banning

artificial UV tanning services is warranted

on the same public health grounds as the

compulsory seat belt legislation.

While Accuro’s submission related to a ban

for people under 18 years, it supports the

introduction of a total ban on commercial

artificial UV tanning.

“As a health insurer grounded in the public

health sector, we are strongly committed

to supporting the effectiveness of publicly

funded health services and better health

outcomes for all New Zealanders,” Geoff

Annals says.

A leading New Zealand dermatologist, Dr

Louise Reiche, who also made submissions

to the Health Select Committee, says she’s

treating many young people, especially

women in their 20s and 30s, with melanomas

resulting from commercial sunbed exposure.

She says clients typically lie naked on

their sunbeds and expose skin to radiation

emitted from UV lamps which can be up to

13 times greater than the peak summer sun.

She’s now treating people with cancer of the

genital skin which is more vulnerable to skin

cancer development.

“The medical profession is run off their

feet with people presenting themselves with

skin cancers causing the public health system

to be overwhelmed,” Dr Reiche says.

“The waiting list is three to four months

for urgent cases and, during the delay, the

cancers are growing. This results in poorer

health outcomes and more complex and

expensive procedures.”

Geoff Annals quoted Cancer

Society figures which report

that New Zealand, along

with Australia, has amongst

the highest melanoma

rates in the world. In 2010

melanoma was the fourth

most common cancer with

2,341 registered cases and

the sixth most common

cause of death from cancer.

VINTAGE TWIST ON

MODERN POP SONGS

THE sensational Scott

Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox

returns to the Isaac eatre

Royal this Sunday!

Furnishing a vintage twist

on modern pop songs, the

New York based collective is

back in NZ by popular

demand following two

successful tours over the last

two years.

Created by Scott Bradlee, the

rotating collective of

Postmodern Jukebox has spent

the past few years amassing

more than 600 million YouTube views and 2+

million subscribers, performed on “Good

Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard

charts and played hundreds of shows to packedhouse

crowds around the world. As NPR put it,

they've done this by “taking current Top 40 hits

and re-imagining them as coming from older

eras of popular music.”

The mastermind behind the group, Scott

Bradlee has turned Postmodern Jukebox into a

juggernaut by building an incredible grassroots

movement around the act. He continues to pick

the songs, create the arrangements and shows,

and puts together the performers - which

includes some notable names alongside

phenomenal "undiscovered" talent. e group

releases a new video every week, each one shot

in the casual environment where he can oen

be seen playing piano in the background.

Postmodern Jukebox is certainly a rebuke to

the contention that 'they don't make 'em like

they used to' - and there's something truly

special about witnessing their musical magic

live.

To echo Bradlee's own invitation: “Dust off

the turntable, fix yourself a stiff drink, and get

comfy. Welcome to the world of Postmodern

Jukebox.”

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox performs

at the Isaac eatre Royal this Sunday night.

Join us at one of Christchurch’s largest events

If you’ve been searching for the perfect occasion for you

and your friends to get together, then here it is. The annual

Women’s Lifestyle Expo is back in Christchurch once more

with their biggest Expo yet.

Variety of companies involved –

something for everybody

With over 200 sites to browse,

unique businesses to discover,

shopping, bargains and laughter,

the Expo is the ultimate day out

for every woman and all ages.

One of the appeals the Expo

has to visitors is the variety

of companies involved with

everything from bamboo tooth

brushes to gourmet vodka.

Renee Murray from NZME

Events, organiser of the Expo

says “Our aim is to have as wide

of a range of companies involved

with the Expo as possible.

Women are all different and their

individual interests are so diverse.

One woman may love the latest in

makeup or is looking for childcare

options but the woman beside her

may be more interested in sampling

handmade cheese or discovering

travel and cultural experiences.

It’s great on the weekend to see

all the various women visit the

show, from teenagers to business

women, mothers to grandmothers

and friends simply enjoying each

other’s company. It’s becoming

more common for us to see three

generations visit the Expo together as

well, with the daughter, mother and

grandmother all enjoying the show and

spending the day with each other.”

Featuring lots of new companies and

everything from fashion and accessories

to travel, giftware, fantastic food and

wine, crafts, unique businesses,

beauty, eco-friendly products,

education, community groups and

so much more – what interests the

modern woman will be at the Expo.

Take time for yourself; Have a Mother–Daughter day out or grab

the girlfriends and head to the Women’s Lifestyle Expo on this 30th

September & 1st October at Horncastle Arena. Door Sales only $10.


Be Pampered at the Expo

This year the Expo will feature several

pamper lounges where visitors can stop

and spoil themselves with everything

from eyelash extensions to a relaxing

foot massage. The Style Mystic Hair

Lounge will be a popular destination for

Expo visitors – take a seat and let the

team spoil you with a new style, haircare

advice or an eyelash treatment. The

Southern Reflexology Group will have a

large Reflexology & Relaxation Lounge

for visitors to put their feet up, have a

mini treatment on site and experience the

healing properties of reflexology.

Sparklewhite Teeth will be offering teeth

whitening treatments and beauty therapy

sessions onsite. Your Expo experience

won’t be complete until you visit the

Moisture Mist Makeup Lounge where not

only will you find these Shiseido brands

at great prices, but the team onsite will

be offering makeovers to Expo visitors.

Find out the best colours and products

to suit your own individual needs and

leave the Expo feeling like a new woman!

Grab a Goodie Bag Bargain

Only available for purchase at the Women’s Lifestyle Expo, these goodie

Bags are perfect for expo visitors who love a bargain. They are a mystery

bag including a scarf, mascara and variety of skincare and cosmetic

products and more. Priced at only $20, these bags are sure to be a hit

Enjoy unique shopping to be found at Women’s Expo

With over 200 companies involved, it will be one of the

largest events held in the region and organisers expect many

thousand women to visit the Expo over the two days.

Renee Murray from Expo

Organisers, NZME Events says

“We will be bringing a fabulous

experience to the women of

Canterbury for one weekend.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see

so many wonderful companies and

do lots of shopping under the one

roof. Aside from having the best of

local companies exhibiting at the

Expo we have a large number of

national companies who will travel

to Christchurch from all around

New Zealand especially to show

local women their products. This

is a great chance for women to

stop, relax and spoil themselves

for one weekend”.

Brandhouse will return to the

Expo again with their range of

champagne, vodka, port and

wines. Popular last year was

the Royal Dragon’s elite flavour

vodka collection with some

flavours selling out. Introducing

the most tantalizing and unique

flavoured vodka collection of its

time, flavours include Watermelon,

Green Apple, Passion Fruit,

Chocolate and Lychee… a

great vodka collection to enjoy

neat, on the rocks or in your

favourite cocktail! Visit the large

Brandhouse site at the show to

sample from their fabulous range and

take home what you love.

A new exhibitor to the show is The Lip

Lounge, a new Christchurch based

business that can help you customize

your own lipstick in your favourite

shade. You can even bring in your

favourite lipstick that may have been

deleted or you want to replicate and

you can watch the girls at The Lip

Lounge mix and create your perfect

shade right in front of you.

A popular section of the show is

the large Artisan Craft Zone. With

some favourite companies appearing

every year and new companies

featuring, it’s the perfect spot to

find original crafts and creations.

Crafter Alexander will travel to

the show all the way from Marton

in the North Island to showcase

his range of handcrafted wooden

kitchen planters. These have

sold out at the past two Expos so

Alex is looking forward to seeing

the feedback from Christchurch

visitors.

Make sure you stop by the Artisan

Craft Zone at the show and meet

some talented small businesses.
