THEY’RE OFF:

Students at St

Andrew’s College

made it their mission

to return the annual

cross-country event

to the school grounds

for the first time

in five years. More

than 700 students

competed in the

event which, due to

campus development

after the February 22,

2011 earthquake, was

held off-site. School

head of co-curricular

Denley Jones said

the race returning

was a student-driven

initiative. Ari Graham

won the senior girls

race while Mitchell

Small won the senior

boys.

Drug arrests linked to bike thefts

• By Andrew King

FOUR PEOPLE arrested on

drugs charges could be linked

with bike thefts around Burnside

High School and Canterbury

University.

About 25 high-end bikes have

been stolen from the school

and university over the last two

months.

Senior Sergeant Stephan

McDaniel said a search warrant

was executed in Burnside on

May 20 and four people were

arrested.

They have appeared in court

facing a number of cannabis and

synthetic cannabis charges and

were released on bail.

“There were other drugs in the

house and we have sent them

off for analysis,” Senior Sergeant

McDaniel said.

It is alleged these four are

directly linked with the thefts of

bikes from the school and possibly

the university.

No charges have been laid

about stolen equipment yet but

Senior Sergeant McDaniel said

the investigation continues.

“We have seized electronic

equipment from the house to

determine where the bikes are

being sold,” he said.

Burnside High School principal

Phil Holstein said it was a

relief for the school community.

“We have increased our surveillance

around the bike bays to

be better prepared in the future,”

he said.

University liaison officer Senior

Constable Ken Carter said no

bike thefts had been reported to

him in the last fortnight.

The university experienced a

spate of bike thefts.

Engineering student Tim

Green (above left) managed to

chase off three youths attempting

to

cut the lock to his mountain

bike.

He spotted them from the

window where he was studying.

Another student Charles More

was not so lucky – his bike was

stolen from in front of the University

of Canterbury Student

Association during the day.

thefts died down around

CHOCOLATE CHEWED OVER AT COUNCIL

A HEATED discussion was quelled

at a city council meeting last week

when a councillor was told to “eat a

Snickers.”

During last week’s meeting, city

councillor Jamie Gough joked

that fellow councillor Glenn

Livingstone should have a snack

during passionate discussions

over a deputation presented to the

city council.

New community hub plans

CONCEPT DESIGNS for the

St Albans Community Centre

have been released for public

consultation.

The current design concept

has been developed by the

community, alongside the city

council and the St Albans community

centre working party,

using information first gathered

in 2010, when an expansion to

the previous community centre

was being planned.

The public can comment on

the project by visiting the city

council’s website clicking on the

Have Your Say page or by filling

out a submission form at the

transitional St Albans Community

Centre.

There will be two drop-in sessions

at the transitional community

centre for the public to come

and meet the working party and

discuss the project. The sessions

will take place on June 8 11am-

1pm and June 16 6-8pm at 1049

Colombo St.

The Shirley-Papanui Community

Board will approve the

final design in July. Construction

of the new centre is set to begin

in 2017.

The previous centre was

demolished after sustaining

severe earthquake damage, and

a transitional community centre

was installed in 2012.

This temporary facility was

intended to be operational for

two to five years until construction

of a permanent replacement

could get underway.

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board chairman Mike Davidson

said the board was excited with

the development and progress of

the new centre and was looking

forward to the public’s feedback.

“Throughout the board’s

engagement with residents and

community groups there was a

very clear desire to replace the

old community centre, so the

working party was formed,” Mr

Davidson said.

“Using information from both

pre and post-earthquake, a design

has been created that truly

captures the essence of

FRESH DESIGN:

The concept

design for

the St Albans

Community

Centre was

released on

Friday and the

city council

wants feedback

from the public. ​

St Albans. This group has

worked with city council staff to

create a concept design, which is

now ready for feedback from the

wider community,” he said.

fund camera

• By Andrew King

FUNDING TO keep a security

camera in St Albans will be

provided by a local community

board.

The Manchester

St camera,

brainchild of city

councillor Ali

Jones (right), was

installed on April

4 to deter clients

visiting sex workers

in the residential area.

Now the three-week free trial

is over, the Shirley-Papanui

Community Board has agreed

to fund the camera for another

month.

It will cost $960 plus GST and

will be funded from the board’s

discretionary fund.

Cr Jones said poor weather

contributed to the reduction of

sex worker activity.

“We, as a board, want to see

what the next four weeks hold,”

she said.

“After the next four weeks, I

hope to have completed my inquiries

regarding other possible

funding streams.”

ATF loaned the camera for

three weeks and set it up on the

corner of the Manchester and

Purchas Sts intersection.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

TINKER – THE SURVIVOR

There is never a dull

moment at McMaster &

Heap vets and funnily

enough the critical

serious cases mostly

show up on weekends,

or 7pm at night. I’d

arrived into work one

Saturday to help out

and Tinker was in our

surgical area, having

just been transferred

from the After

Hours Clinic. He

looked terrible (

his face had taken

the full impact of

a collision with a

car) but he was on

a fentanyl drip and

his pain seemed

well managed.

Miraculously he

had survived and

his success story is

due to not just our

surgical efforts that Saturday but also the

events that took place by many people

prior to us seeing him.

His accident happened Friday night and

some great human being saw him on the

road and immediately delivered him to

the After Hours clinic, which incidentally

saved his life. We are so fortunate to have

an emergency centre open through

the nights and weekends when other

clinics have closed. The team there

swiftly examined and

stabilized Tinker and

started him on pain

medications, antibiotics

and intravenous fluids.

Then his owners were

contacted as Tinker

wore a collar with

nametag attached. This

means of identification

(or a microchip) is so

important because

without an owners

consent we can’t really

treat a critically ill

patient to save its life.

He was monitored and

cared for all night until

he was dropped off to

us Saturday morning.

Even though it was a

weekend with less staff

rostered on, I knew

Tinker couldn’t wait

until Monday for surgical

repair. His lovely, worried

owners wanted for us to do “everything”

we could to ensure Tinker came home.

That’s where our outstanding team need

to be greatly commended, because

regardless if any of them had plans that

night, they all, without me asking, stayed

late to ensure the best possible care

and attention was given to a critically ill

patient.

Tinker was anaesthetized, his skull

was radiographed and I repaired his

mandibular jaw fracture with wire and his

hard pelate injury. He had a massive gnash

under his chin that required suturing and

he had several broken teeth. A feeding

tube was placed in his oesophagus to

enable us and his owners to feed him

post operatively. Cats with fractured jaws

can take weeks to eat on their own. Steve

was called in to assess his eyes as they

were completely closed over and I wasn’t

sure whether he had retinal injuries, lens

or corneal damage.

Luckily Steve felt

there was no ocular

damage, just a lot of

bruising and facial

swelling.

Tinker was managed

intensively over the

coming week, his

days spent with our

hospital nurses and

nights at the After

Hours. He needed

everything done

for him from feeding six

times a day, loads of medications to be

given, his face washed and he needed

grooming as he couldn’t do this for

himself. His owners

visited him daily and

he really loved their

visits. He was the

perfect patient to treat

– he was stoic, obliging

and grateful.

Tinker was a FULL

TEAM effort and I’m so

pleased to report he’s

home now, lounging

on beds, walking

around his section,

able to groom himself

and even eating a

little on his own. Steve

and I couldn’t do the

job we do without the

dedicated, caring staff

we have.

A fantastic outcome

and even though

Tinker looks a little

facially different now,

his owners report they have their “old”

friend back.

Dr Michele McMaster

Don’t leave the

kitchen when cooking

• Mark Thomas

– Fire Risk Management Officer

IT’S BEEN a while since I’ve talked

about cooking fires in kitchens but there

were five of these this week including a

couple that caused quite considerable

damage and inevitably one that resulted

in ambulance treatment for the house

occupant from smoke inhalation.

As always the advice is the same. Don’t

leave the kitchen when you’re cooking on

the stove top.

If you are cooking with fat or oil have

the lid of the pan, an oven tray or a

breadboard always available to slap on

the top if the worst happens and flames

appear.

A quick fix with no ongoing problems

or a kitchen on fire with the weeks of

inconvenience that involves. It should be

a no-brainer really, shouldn’t it?

A number of quite odd fire calls

featured this week. A fish smoker was

found on fire in Barrington Park. A

distraught Mum was attended to in

Addington where she had locked herself

out of the house with two toddlers inside.

A lady rang for help because she had

found a mouse in her laundry. A crew

were called to accident and emergency

the hospital to help a young woman

whose finger was somehow struck fast in a

doorknob.

Finally, we had a call to a car fire at

DAMAGE: Kitchen fires require a lot of

cleaning up.

a service station that turned out to be

a blown engine and two calls to low

hanging smoke that turned out to be mist.

I suspect we’ll have some more of these

now with winter starting to bite. Stay

warm, stay safe!

Permit parking trial In Brief

• By Andrew King

CONTRACTOR parking

permits will be trialled in

Merivale.

The city council decided on

Thursday it would run a oneyear

trial on a section of Holmwood

Rd of resident-based

parking permits for contractors

where there is no off-street parking.

The permits were the idea

of Merivale resident Dr Stuart

Gowland. He lobbied the Fendalton-Waimairi

Community

Board, and said some contractors

have vehicles too big to fit

on some properties and need to

park on the road.

City councillor Jamie Gough

said the trial was a fantastic

result.

“The reason we have asked for

this is because the current system

was completely inadequate,”

he said.

“The current system does not

allow for weather dependant

work or projects that run for

longer than the predicted time

frame.”

The way contractor permits

will work is still being finalised

by city council staff. However,

Cr Gough said it will be a very

straightforward process.

TRIAL APPROVED: The city council decided on Thursday it

would run a one-year trial on a section of Holmwood Rd of

resident-based parking permits for contractors where there is

no off-street parking.

The contractor would verify

themselves with the city council

and be issued a permit for its

vehicles.

The permit would display

the registration number of the

vehicle to indicate to authorities

that the vehicle is exempt from

time restricted parking.

Dr Gowland is thrilled the

trial is going ahead.

“It would have been crazy to

try roll it out across the city,” he

said.

“This way we can test the waters

and see if it is good enough

to make it policy.”

He said there is a similar

system operated by the Devon

County Council in the United

Kingdom, where he got the idea

from.

The city council will retain

its current permission-based

system for the rest of the city.

parking permits a

good idea? Share your views

RUNNING FOR COUNCIL

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board chairman Mike Davidson

will run for a seat on the city

council this year. He has decided

to run in the Papanui Ward.

Mr Davidson said he believed

the best way to add value to his

community is by committing

full time as a councillor. Fellow

board member and current

city councillor, Pauline Cotter,

was nominated by the People’s

Choice, a Labour aligned group,

to run for a seat in the Innes

Ward. They join board deupty

chairman Aaron Keown in the

race for a city council seat. Mr

Keown will be running in the

Harewood Ward.

SMOKE ALARMS

INSTALLED

Housing New Zealand homes

in Papanui have been fitted

with new photoelectric smoke

alarms. Since February, 633

homes have had the new alarms

installed. When the smoke

particles entering the chamber

changes, the amount of light

that reaches the sensor also

changes. The alarm sounds

when the smoke density reaches

a preset level.

WORK STARTING

Residents of Claridges Rd and

Grampian St in Casebrook

will have SCIRT teams in their

neighbourhood for about eight

weeks from today for repairs

to the wastewater system. In

Grampian St and in Claridges

Rd, sections of earthquakedamage

wastewater mains

are being replaced which will

require trenching of parts of the

street. A section of Grampian

St will be closed and detours

signalled.

STUDENT AND STAFF ART

SHOW

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

students and staff will be

exhibiting Thinking in Print in

the Selwyn Art Gallery from

June 3. Some of these works

are part of NCEA visual arts

portfolios, where the assessment

is based on developing and

extending ideas. The focus in

the school’s art department

is on developing independent

thinking. The gallery will be

open daily, except Mondays,

from 10am to 4pm for the

duration of this exhibition.

INFORMATION SOUGHT

Choir’s heartfelt tribute

• By Tom Doudney

A TIGHT-KNIT choir

group have recorded a

song for the funeral of

a terminally ill former

member now living in the

Netherlands.

Women in Harmony

recorded East Timorese

hymn Ita Hotu Maromak

Nia Povo We Are God’s

People at the request of

Dorien Pel who is dying

of cancer.

Ms Pel was a long time

member of the choir up

until about six years ago

when she first developed

cancer.

When her house was

damaged in the September

2010 earthquake,

she moved back to her

country of birth, the

Netherlands, for what

was supposed to be six

months. But the stay ended up

becoming permanent.

In spite of surgery, the

cancer had returned and Ms

Pel was already planning her

funeral in the Netherlands when

she returned to Christchurch for

a visit in December and January.

Choir member Judi Smitheram

said choir members had met Ms

Pel at a social gathering and sang

together again.

HARMONY: Choir member Dorien Pel, standing with red scarf, fifth

from left, with the choir in 2007.

“Dorien was wonderful at

always bringing poetry to our

gatherings and she had written

a poem especially for us,” Ms

Smitheram said.

It was during this visit that Ms

Pel asked if they would record

the song, which the choir had

not performed in more than

eight years.

The choir sourced a recording

of the song from Australia’s Radio

National station to help them

go over it and get the pronunciation

right, as the words are in the

Tetum language.

After recording it, they sent it

to Ms Pel.

“We got a lovely note back

from Dorien saying how much

she appreciated it and she was

very moved,” Ms Smitheram

said.

Women in Harmony has

about 20 members from around

Christchurch.

​Charity that helps

most vulnerable

falls on tough times

• By Tom Doudney

A LOCAL trust which acts as a

problem solver for vulnerable,

disadvantaged and struggling

people around New Zealand

said it is in urgent need of

funding.

SigJaws Trust helps people in

a variety of ways, from lobbying

for retention of services,

suggesting changes to

legislation, finding work

and housing and promoting

innovations.

However, project manager

Gary Watts (right),

who founded SigJaws

in 2001, said the trust

had been struggling financially

for some time and needed more

funding to carry on.

The trust’s operating expenses

were “conservatively” about

$207,000 a year and while it had

enough to carry on over the next

six months, finding new funding

was a big challenge.

“We have got over 200

clients now that we are

dealing with on a day-to-day basis

and a lot of these people have

slipped through other systems

NOR’WEST NEWS

big-time,” Mr Watts said.

One of its recent projects has

included working with Canterbury

University to develop a

robotic arm which would allow

mobility-impaired drivers to fill

up at petrol stations without leaving

the car.

The trust had received funding

from organisations including the

Ministry of Social Development,

the Rotary Club of

Christchurch and The Lion

Foundation within the last

year.

However, it had been

unsuccessful in seeking

funding from the Red

Cross, the Canterbury Community

Trust and the city council.

“If our funding dries up it’s just

impossible to carry on,” Mr Watts

said.

SigJaws Trust board member

Jamie Hoffman, who has cerebral

palsy said Mr Watts had been

pivotal in helping him find suitable

accommodation after the

earthquakes.

“People just don’t realise how

much good he does out there,”

Mr Hoffman said.

Protect our streams

This week’s Soapbox

is from Fendalton-

Waimairi Community

Board member Faimeh

Burke about the state of

streams in her ward and

what she believes are

the factors behind the

decline in water levels

Once flowing through the north-west

suburbs of Christchurch and being a

treasure for young and old, streams

including the Waimairi and Wai-iti have

dried up since March last year.

The crystal clear water has given way to

stormwater mixed with rubbish and contaminates.

The fact that the aesthetics of these

streams has been damaged is not the only

issue for residents. The effects on fish, bird

habitats, recreational values, serious mosquito

problems and unpleasant smells are

also causing great concern for them.

There are various reasons which have all

possibly contributed to the disruption of

the springs that fed the streams in our city.

A significant increase of irrigation

consents issued by ECan in inland Canterbury,

ECan’s failure to efficiently protect

our streams, rivers and lakes from the

negative effects of stock damage as well as

environmentally unfriendly developments

are among the factors which might have

contributed to the deteriorating situation.

Although we can’t prevent the earthquakes

and the damage that they might

create and don’t have any direct influence

in the amount of the rainfall, we

should try our best to prevent further

man-made damages and remedy the existing

ones. Forests, grasslands and wetlands

act like sponges that slow down and absorb

water when it rains.

However, in cities, where these areas are

often replaced with impermeable surfaces

such as roads, footpaths and car parks,

water is no longer absorbed by the action

of the plants and instead flows directly into

streams via the stormwater system.

After listening to residents, the Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board has asked

the city council to give a high priority to

investigate remedies for the regeneration of

the Wai-iti stream, as part of its integrated

water strategy which includes the health of

spring-fed rivers and streams.

It is also time that ECan seriously reconsiders

the consequences of its increased

irrigation consents and its lenient way of

protecting our streams.

We can’t afford to do nothing, after all, it

is quality of our life which is at stake.

A reader responds to a

recent article about St

Albans residents unhappy

about the $76m Northern

Arterial and Cranford St four

laning projects:

Ian McKenzie, St Albans

– I support the call from the St

Albans Residents Association

for more public transport and

cycling options and not spending $76m

on delivering more traffic

more efficiently into upper Cranford St

to the detriment of St Albans and the

city.

I made a verbal submission last

year making the same protest to the

Canterbury Regional Council, the city

council, New Zealand Transport Agency

and the city council Northern Arterial

Corridor Project RMA applications and

hearing.

We need more people in the city, we

don’t need more cars.

I suggest that the Northern Arterial

and Cranford St road upgrade options

ignore history and international

developments in transport planning for

cities.

There has been a strong public lobby,

post-earthquakes, for improved public

transport, for a pedestrian and cyclistfriendly

city.

The concept of delivering a greater

number of cars to mid-Cranford St and

then having the drivers sort themselves

out from there to their various city

destinations is, in my view, counter to

the concepts expressed by residents and

captured in the vision of ‘An Accessible

City’.

A reader responds to a recent

article about a camera being used

to deter clients visiting sex workers

in a suburban setting:

Mae Kiely, city centre – “If we can get

them to move back into the city centre it

will make both parties happier”, quote

from city councillor Ali Jones.

The article was advocating to get

sex workers to relocate back into the

city centre and out of the suburbs and

therefore away from the people and

children living in those suburbs.

What about the people and children

living in the city centre? Don’t we

matter? Just get the sex workers out of

your area.

Too bad if you happen to live in the

city centre, is that the approach?

We live around the corner from the

Margaret Mahy playground where

hundreds of children come to play –

and it’s my understanding that the

council wants families to come back

into the centre. I live on Peterborough

St with my two children and we have

neighbours with children. Are you really

saying that it’s okay for sex workers to

be around city centre children but not

suburban children?

NOR’WEST NEWS Tuesday May 31 2016 9

I was so shocked to read as

much.

“And the issue is not with

prostitution itself, it is the noise,

damage and rubbish that is left

behind in a residential area” (Ali

Jones). Again are you saying

this is fine for city dwellers

but not suburbanites? Gosh,

the discrimination is mind

blowing…

I don’t like the activity

happening on our street. Like

Matt Bonis (of St Albans) said,

we have found needles, our

neighbours have had things

stolen and our neighbours have

been woken up in the middle of

the night to find people having

sex on their property. That’s not

okay. But hang on, if it’s not okay

for you, it’s not okay for us.

I don’t know how to tackle this

problem – it’s not easy. I don’t

have the answers but I believe sex

workers need to be supported.

Ideally they would operate

indoors somewhere.

Just moving them onto another

area doesn’t help – it just makes

it worse for us as the numbers

in the centre will increase. We

should tackle the issue together,

as a city and not just have the

rich areas trying to offload it into

less well off areas.

“If we can get them to move

back into the city centre it will

make both parties happier.”

Both parties? The only ones

who will be happier are the St

Albans residents. Not the sex

workers and not the areas you

conveniently “relocate” them

to. It’s very much a win-loose

scenario. Let’s look for a better

outcome.

City councillor Ali Jones

responds:

Thanks for taking the time to

write. I totally agree with you

regarding “something needs to be

done urgently – to help them and

not just shove them around.”

Pauline Cotter, police, myself,

city council staff, the prostitutes

collective and several social

support agencies have been

trying to find a resolution for

almost three years, with work

also having gone on before Cr

Cotter and I were elected in

October 2013.

I am advised that the problem

is the poor prostitute reform act

legislation that was put in place

by Tim Barnett.

In spite of assertions by

the Labour and National

Governments, local councils

cannot put a bylaw in place

because the legislation does not

provide us with a strong enough

foundation from which to draft

a bylaw.

We need to be confident

that it can be enforced and be

successfully defended in court.

The cameras are achieving

what no one has been able to,

to date and that is one, deter

activity that has made people’s

lives a misery for years, and two,

capture breaches of the summary

offences act that would otherwise

be missed to support any legal

action that could be taken.

I agree that we do not want

to shift the problem into your

backyard Mae and I would

encourage you to contact your

Christchurch Central MP

Nicky Wagner to implore her to

champion a change in the PRA

legislation, something I know

she has tried already but in my

opinion needs to be strongly

promoted again.

Then the city council as a

local authority may have the

foundation upon which to draft

enabling us to enforce controls

on where street prostitution can

take place.

If you have any ideas in the

meantime, I’d love to hear them

so please feel free to get in touch.

We asked readers if they

thought Bishopdale should

have a direct bus line into

the city centre. A reader

responds:

Una Atkins, Bishopdale –

Living in Bishopdale, yes, buses

go via Bishopdale but there is

nothing direct into the city.

Being a low-socio economic area,

a lot of people rely on the buses

and it is quite frustrating having

to walk either to Wairakei Rd or

Harewood Rd.

Not a lot of people have that

pleasure if in ill health.

The petition taken by the

Bishopdale Community Centre

was proof of this.

However, I agree with Ms

Smith that ECan had made up

its mind before the petition was

started.

I know that residents of

Bishopdale area rely on taxi’s.

This is an expense in its own

right and therefore a lot of the

elderly are housebound.

If a bus zig-zagged itself

around the “outer” roads such as

Breens Rd, Kilburn Stand wound

round various other roads, as

before, a lot more people would

get out and about and enjoy the

city.

Good Luck to Ms Smith, I wish

her well, but from the past, I

doubt whether ECan will change

it’s mind.

All city residents of

Christchurch should have access

to decent routes into the city so

they can go and explore the city

or visit health establishments

which are out of reach unless in

an expensive taxi.

Even if a bus left every hour

from the Bishopdale Shopping

Centre, that would improve

things.

Do it ECan!

Architects honoured for designs

Ruth Gardner

Community volunteer’s work

Ruth Gardner worked

as Volunteering

Canterbury’s

manager for more

than 20 years

until she retired

last month. Fraser

talks to her about

voluntary work after

the earthquakes,

running the

show at wedding

ceremonies, and

living with the town

How long have you been

involved with Volunteering

Canterbury for?

I’ve been involved with

Volunteering Canterbury for

21 years.

And what have you

achieved in that time?

They weren’t just my achievements,

I was leading a great team

that led a whole group of volunteers

and encouraged volunteering

throughout Canterbury.

Sure. How many volunteers

did you get into the community

RECOGNITION: Mayor Lianne Dalziel spoke at Ruth Gardner’s retirement function to recognise her

work for Volunteering Canterbury over 21 years.

in your time? Do you know the

number?

Thousands in my time, I

probably couldn’t tell you the

exact number. After the earthquake

there was a lot of informal

volunteering, and it took time to

become more formal again. By

the end of my time there, we were

having a couple hundred volunteers

a month applying.

Okay, so who is next in line

for your job?

The organisation has decided

now to have two managers, one

that does marketing outreach,

and she’s been there for four

years, and there’s a new man that

will be coming in too.

What was some of the work

you got involved with because of

the earthquake?

Well we had a lot to do with

clearing liquefaction off the

streets with the help of volunteers,

the Student Volunteer

Army and the Farmy Army. We

made sure those people that

needed help got it.

How many people are involved

in Volunteering Canterbury?

There are only two paid workers

full time, but there is another

group of about 10 who help out

voluntarily. They do store work,

accounting, PR work, stores or

expos, website, trust board, all

kinds of things, whenever we

needed something we knew

where to find those people.

Wow, sounds like you’ve had

some busy days?

It was always busy, always varied,

and there was always something

different every day. It keeps

you on your toes.

Did you still feel like that at

the end of your 21 years?

Yes, absolutely, I still feel like

that, I had just had enough of full

time work, so now I’m able to do

other things which is great.

recognised but not finished

Oh that’s good then. What do

you do in your spare time now?

I still actually do a bit of voluntary

work, I chair the residents

committee in the Avon Loop,

and that’s with a lovely bunch of

people too. At the moment we’re

working hard to rebuild a local

community centre. There’s seven

on that committee, and others

help around the place. I’ve been

involved for quite a long time. But

since the earthquake the need has

become different for a lot of communities.

We also have a community

cottage that we maintain and

rent out.

With Volunteering Canterbury

did your role change after

the earthquake to more of an

emergency recovery mode?

Yes it did, in fact we had to put

some of our policies to the side

after earthquake. Because there

were urgent things that had to

happen right away, and a lot of

informal volunteering took place.

It was also a bit difficult in terms

of health and safety with people

going around those dangerous

chimneys.

Are you from Christchurch?

I’ve been here for 30 years

and I was also brought up here,

so I’ve spent more than half

my life here, but I was born in

Auckland. I went to St Albans

Primary School, and then

back to Auckland when I was

about 10, and lived there for 20

something years, but now I love

Christchurch and I wouldn’t

leave.

Oh that’s good to hear! What

high school did you go to?

Epsom Grammar in Auckland.

I don’t have a degree but I did

feminist studies at Canterbury

University and a bit of study at

the polytechnic. And I’m actually

a celebrant too, with the certificate

and everything.

Wow, you’re qualified all over

the show.

Well, when you’re in the voluntary

sector you never know what

will come in handy, and what

different skills are useful.

And now that you’ve retired

from Volunteering Canterbury,

do you plan to do a bit more

with your celebrant’s certificate?

Oh yes, absolutely. Now that

I’m retired I’m hoping to do more

celebrants work.

Do you know how many weddings

you’ve done?

Oh, I really don’t know. I’d say

about 100 weddings, but a lot

fewer since the earthquakes. But

I’m hoping now to have more

time to do more weddings. I’m

also a keen blogger, I write about

anything that’s going on around

here, and anything to do with the

central city. I’ve been doing that

for 10 years, and I have more than

1000 followers, which has taken a

long time. But that’s on realruth.

wordpress.com if you wanted to

have a look.

Very good, I definitely will.

What are some other hobbies?

I enjoy my garden and I write

poetry. I write mainly rhyming

poetry, I joined a group of women

poets, and I like to walk and relax

with friends.

And are you married with kids?

Yes, I’m married and two adult

daughters who both live in England.

Both near London, one is a

lawyer and one is an IT manager.

They’ve done very well, yes.

And does your husband work

still?

Yes, he does – he’s actually the

town crier. It makes for some

interesting conversations for sure.

He’s originally from England, but

he’s been doing that for about 26

years. He started five years before

me, to the day. He’s very keen to

keep doing that.

Where in the city are you

based?

We’re in one of the remaining

little old cottages in the Avon

visitors 86-0 in a one-sided

affair.

After a slow start, including

a loss to Marlborough Boys

and draw with Nelson, Christchurch

Boys appear to now be

hitting their straps as they look

to make it 16 consecutive wins

over Christ’s.

This year’s annual fixture has

been the most hyped in recent

years with Christ’s College

looking a different side from the

one that lost 80-0 in last year’s

fixture.

Under the coaching guidance

of former All Black captain

Reuben Thorne and former

Crusader Cameron McIntyre,

Christ’s find themselves in an

unfamiliar position at the top of

the UC Championship.

A 36-0 win over Roncalli

at the weekend is the latest

evidence to suggest 2016 is the

school’s best chance in recent

years of ending the drought

which goes back to 2000.

St Andrew’s have retained

the Moascar Cup, with a 10-10

draw on Saturday meaning the

trophy will stay in Christchurch.

A late try from Sam Gilbert

was just enough for last year’s

semi-finalists who are unbeaten

through five games in this year’s

championship.

St Andrew’s face another

tough test this weekend when

they host defending champions

St Bede’s.

The 2015 champions had a

victory in the latest round, a

28-8 win against Rangiora High

moves them into the top half of

the championship.

Professional team

key to dental centre growth

THe peOple on the team are an

integral part of the growth at St Albans

Dental Centre, with all of the dentists

dedicated to providing professional,

high-quality dental care to their patients.

Recent staff changes and additions

have seen that professionalism

underlined as the practice expands to

service the community. Dr Sarah Norton

has joined the team to replace Dr Ben

eggleston, who has relocated to Nelson.

Sarah graduated from the University of

Otago in 2010. She then worked for three

years for a large group practice on the

Gold Coast. Sarah spent three months

travelling with her husband before

settling in Christchurch.

Sarah is passionate about providing

excellent-quality dental care in a friendly

and gentle manner and the other dentists

say they feel privileged to have her on

board.

Dr Andrew paul has been locuming

while Dr Kristine Bettle is on maternity

leave and has now become a permanent

member of the team.

Andrew completed his studies at the

University of Otago in 2009 and worked

as a house surgeon in Christchurch

Hospital before moving to Australia

for four years where he worked in

both hospital and private-practice

environments. Hospital work inspired

Andrew with a special interest in oral

surgery and emergency dentistry while

his work in private practice ensures his

high level of quality general dentistry.

Andrew has a very open approach to

problem solving and is seen as an asset to

the team.

New hygienist, Victoria Ryan, has

replaced Katy Monk who has relocated

to Auckland. Victoria graduated from

University of Otago in 2014 with a

Bachelor of Oral Health. Before joining

our team, Victoria worked as a dental

therapist in Dunedin.

For any concerns, questions or to make

an appointment at St Albans Dental

Centre please call (03) 355 9380 and they

will be happy to help with any dental

health enquiry.

Broken-hearted to leave

21 Highpeak Place, Halswell

Auction: June 9, 2016 (unless sold prior)

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 2 living rooms |1 dining room | 2-car garage | 3 off-street parks | Listing #: BE192595

But it is time to make a change and

leave this spacious happy home

of many years. You won’t want to

miss out on this opportunity in the

boutique subdivision of Broken Run. The

cul-de-sac location is desirably tranquil, and

this immaculately presented home will be a

delight to view.

Step into the entrance way and then onto

the large well-appointed kitchen with quality

Smeg appliances and large oven. The dining

and family room are very spacious and have

vaulted ceilings. The separate formal lounge

with a cosy gas fire and family room have

bifold doors that open onto the manicured

garden, a wonderful prospect for summer

entertaining. The master bedroom also opens

as well to the garden - perhaps time for a

coffee and croissant in the morning before the

day begins? The ensuite is unusually large, a

rare find in modern homes, and the family

bathroom certainly does not lack in size as

well. Two further double bedrooms and a

large single will safely house the family and

guests.

The home is double glazed, fully insulated,

has two heat pumps, a gas fire and under floor

heating in the tiled kitchen and bathrooms.

A larger than normal double garage with

trailer door to the backyard completes the

deal in this very spacious home.

Don’t delay; this lovely home must be sold

on or before auction day to let my vendors

move on to the next stage of their life.

Open Home dates: Saturdays and Sundays

2.30pm to 3pm until auction, or to arrange a

private viewing of this property call Debbie

Pettigrew now on 337 1316 or 027 777 0411

or Malcolm Parker on 027 220 7843 from
