Risk over dry stream plan

• By Gabrielle Stuart and Andrew

King

A POTENTIAL solution to

drying streams in the north-west

has been found, but it comes

with a risk: The flow-on effects

could dry other streams.

Both the Waimairi and Wai-iti

streams have dried out and, in

March, more than 40 residents

signed a petition asking the city

council to do something about it.

Several options for feeding

the streams were put forward in

a report put to the Fendalton-

Waimairi Community Board

yesterday, which included creating

a new bore or diverting water

from existing ones.

The cost of a new bore was estimated

a between $250,000 and

$350,000, and diverting water

from an existing bore in Burnside

Park has been estimated to

cost $125,000. But the report also

warned the potential solution

could come at a cost.

“Augmentation of one stream

may have negative effects on

other streams, by diverting shallow

groundwater which would

otherwise go to another stream,”

the report said.

Community board deputy

chairman David Cartwright was

concerned the board did not

have enough information about

the potential effects of the bores.

“I’m certainly wanting to

maintain streams as they are

part of Christchurch’s heritage,

but not if it is at the detriment of

the greater Christchurch ecology

or aquifers,” he said.

He wanted to see more information

about the flow-on effects,

how the water levels would be

monitored and if a new bore

could be shut off, before a final

decision was made.

He was also concerned about

the wider problem of dropping

aquifer levels, and whether more

streams would dry in the future.

Money spent on the bores

could reduce the budget for other

water programmes supporting

the greater aquifer system.

Climate change, a drier than

average winter and more urbanisation

preventing water seeping

back into the ground are the

main reasons there have been

low water levels, according to the

report.

Fendalton resident Kristina

Pickford, who has the Wai-iti

Stream running through her

property, agreed longer-term

solutions to the low aquifer levels

needed to be prioritised.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News.............3, 5, 6, 7 & 23

THE NEW local body election

wards have thrown up a few

interesting issues. One of the

most intriguing is that there are

many candidates not opting to

go for the ward they live in (page

5). Waimairi Ward, for example,

is guaranteed not to have a city

councillor who lives in the area,

while Harewood has candidates

from Cashmere vying for the

table. Though it is not a legal

requirement, it seems like strategy

is playing a heavy part in this.

In my humble opinion, there is

nothing like being at the grass

roots of a community to truly

know the issues and heart of the

area.

Current city councillor Jamie

Gough takes a shot at the new

wards in his opinion piece this

week (page 4). Postal election

ballots are delivered to mailboxes

from Friday – choose wisely.

Major sporting hub plan

• By Andrew King

THE ELMWOOD Club is

looking to undertake a major

expansion of its facilities by

building on a nearby school.

The Ministry of Education

and the club have a verbal contract

allowing the club to build

a “major sporting hub” on land

that belongs to Heaton Normal

Intermediate on Heaton St.

The club is made up of seven

different sporting clubs, including

Lincoln University Rugby

Football Club, St Nicholas

Netball Club, Elmwood Bowling

Club, Elmwood Croquet Club,

Old Boys Collegians Cricket

Club, High School Old Boys’

Burnside Hockey, High School

Old Boys’ Football Club and the

Shirley Volleyball Club.

It currently has a bowling

green, beach volleyball courts

and croquet facilities and also

backs onto Elmwood Park

which has grounds for cricket

and football.

A planner has been employed

by the club to figure out what

can be built, how much it will

cost and how they will fund it.

The idea is to include multiuse

indoor courts, clubrooms,

gym space and sports medicine

facilities.

UPGRADE: Elmwood Club sports co-ordinator Erin Hyde said a

new sports facility would allow the already popular grounds to

expand and provide a better service.

A city council independent

hearing committee has ruled

the building can go ahead

provided it does not affect surrounding

residents.

Club sports co-ordinator

Erin Hyde said it is a fantastic

opportunity to grow sports in

the area.

“We want to create a real

community vibe . . . we are in

a central part of town with a

strong community focus,” she

said.

The seven clubs have 2600

members between them, and

more than 75,000 people pass

through the doors each year, Ms

Hyde said.

Club board member Lorraine

McLeod said the key is to work

with the surrounding community

and schools to make the

best possible facility.

“Both Heaton and St Andrew’s

will have prioritised use,”

she said.

“We are now at the stage that

we need to replace our current

buildings with something modern

and usable . . . It will be the

icing on the cake for those who

use it,” she said.

Sport Canterbury chief executive

Julyan Falloon said any

collaboration between schools

and clubs was a great thing,

provided it was not doubling up

on current facilities.

“They are hard to get started,

but have huge value once up and

running,” he said.

In Brief

HOUSE FIRE

A rubbish truck driver risked his life

on Friday at about 6.30am when he

spotted a house fire in Burnside. He

broke the windows to alert anyone

inside about the danger. Luckily noone

was home at the time. However,

a pet dog died in the blaze.

Early indications suggest the fire

started in the lounge and then

gutted the house. Fire crews from

Harewood fought the blaze for close

to an hour.

DEEPENING BORES

The city council is set to speed up

efforts to replace shallow bores,

which provide drinking water to the

north-west of Christchurch, with

ones that are deeper. It’s a recommendation

from the infrastructure,

transport and environment committee.

There are 22 bores in the

north-west catchment, supplying

about 80,000 people. The shallowest

of these is 16m. The deep bores

which provide water to other parts

of the city reach depths of about

100m. The work is due to be completed

in June 2018.

ROADING DETOURS

The intersection of Westminister

St, Roosevelt St and Courtenay St

in St Albans will be closed while

an intersection upgrade is carried

out. Motorists can use Cranford St,

Innes Rd and Rutland St to detour

around the work site.

City

councillor

Jamie Gough

writes this

week’s

opinion piece

on being the

Lone Ranger

of Fendalton and how the

system may not encourage

people to get involved with

the city council.

Being the Lone Ranger of Fendalton

– due to an unopposed

re-election to the city council –

is a slightly odd feeling.

I’m torn with emotion as my

successful bid for a third term

was obviously a goal for the year,

however, I’m disappointed about

what it says for democracy.

The new representation model,

which the city council adopted

earlier this year, changed the way

our council is elected – the ward

sizes were shrunk, so instead

of multiple councillors elected

over a wider area, it became a

winner-take-all system with one

councillor elected per small area.

Further to this, more councillors

were added in total.

I cannot see how this achieves

anything positive as it virtually

ensures incumbents have

a stranglehold on their small

patch.

Dare I say it, but I suspect

this may have been exactly what

some people wanted.

What it will mean for the

working dynamics is also worrying;

the system will incentivise

councillors to loose sight of the

bigger picture, which is the vital

ingredient of good governance.

I come from a private-enterprise

background and don’t plan

on being a councillor for life, so

to be perfectly frank, having a

cushy re-election road is of no

interest to me.

What I actually care about is

having a system that encourages

capable people to put their hand

up, because having quality councillors

around the table is what’s

really important.

This is exactly why I voted

against the model we now have.

Having the most conflicted

people in the world – the councillors

themselves – effectively

driving the process which dictates

their re-employment is a

complete nonsense.

Something needs to change

and I plan on trying to have this

self-serving model kicked for

touch.

new system discourage

people from putting their

hand up to become city

councillors? Share your

JUST WHEN we were getting

used to warmer days and

shorter nights on Wednesday we

got reminded just how winter

could have been with a polar

blast sweeping through the city.

While there was a bit of hail,

a bit of wind and a lowering of

temperature before 2pm it was

from 4.35 pm on wards that

everything went off for our fire

crews.

Between then and 2am the

next morning we attended 37

incidents caused by the weather.

It wasn’t a great night to be

a tree with 18 of these being

uprooted right across the city,

interrupting power and blocking

roads.

There were also garden sheds,

trampolines, a car port, some

roofs and even a campervan

away.

Which means we need to be

careful with anything, including

barbecues, that might start fire.

Friday a week ago saw fire

in Bottle Lake Forest which is

always a concern.

Normally, we go to deliberately-lit

fires started by idiots who

seem to think it a good idea.

However, this time a loader

working at the landfill had a fuel

hose burst and diesel poured

over its electrics when then

shorted out.

The resulting fire was probably

quite a shock to the driver.

It was going well when St

Albans crew arrived but was

quickly extinguished.

Few candidates live in wards

• By Andrew King and

Bridget Rutherford

HALF OF the candidates

standing for the city council in

the north-west do not live in the

wards they are competing in.

Between Harewood,

Waimairi, Papanui, Fendalton

and Innes Wards there are 12

candidates looking for a spot

around the city council table

come October.

Of those 12, only Brian

Gargiulo and Aaron Keown

(Harewood), John Stringer

(Papanui), Jamie Gough

(Fendalton), Pauline Cotter and

Mel Rodricks (Innes), live in the

wards they are standing in.

Current city councillor

Pauline Cotter and Mel

Rodricks both live and will

compete in the Innes Ward,

Jamie Gough was re-elected

after he ran unopposed in the

Fendalton Ward and John

Stringer will compete for a seat

Elections 16

in his home ward of Papanui.

Both candidates in the

Waimairi Ward do not live in

the area.

Current city councillor Raf

Manji lives in Fendalton and

said he has been closely involved

in the District Plan issues in that

area.

“I am not a fan of the new ward

system for councillors but that’s

what we have for now,” he said.

Anthony Rimell lives in

Central and said he is standing

in Waimairi because that’s

where he grew up, got married

and first had his family.

“I could have chosen to

stand elsewhere, but this is an

area I love, and really want to

represent,” he said.

Harewood is the most

contested ward in the city with

five candidates.

Faimeh Burke, who lives in

Fendalton but is running for

Harewood said most areas of the

new Harewood Ward, used to be

part of the Fendalton-Waimairi

Ward.

“I have represented [that area]

as a community board member

for the last 12 years,” she said.

Rod D Cameron, who lives in

Cashmere and is running for

Harewood, said the Harewood

Ward is new.

“There’s no current councillor

who is standing, so the voters

need a bit of experience, and I’ve

had two previous terms on the

Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board,’ he said.

Rod S Cameron also lives in

Cashmere and is running for

Harewood said he didn’t think

he naturally fits in anywhere.

“I spoke to a couple of current

councillors I know quite well

and they asked if I would

consider Harewood,” he said.

Mike Davidson lives in

Central and is running

for Papanui said the ward

moved from him due to the

representation review.

“My decision to stand as

an Independent candidate in

Papanui was because of the work

I have done in this ward as the

chairman of the community

board and the over 20 years I

have spent living locally,” he said.

Motel complex

planned near

Northlands

• By Bridget Rutherford

TWO EMPTY sections, 200m from

Northlands Shopping Centre, could

be turned into motels.

Victor Chan has applied to the city

council for resource to consent to

build a 14-unit motel complex at 134

and 136 Main North Rd, including a

manager’s residence.

The complex would be made up

of two buildings. The first doublestorey

building would have the

manager’s residence and garage, a

reception and three units, while the

first floor would have a further four

units.

The second building would have

four units on the ground floor level

and three on the first floor, with a

deck. It would have 16 car parks, and

two cycle parks.

Previous owners had gained

resource consent for a similar motel

development in 2006. However, it

expired.

Mr Chan bought the two sites in

November. A resource management

act hearings panel will be held on

September 29 so Commissioner David

Mountford can decide whether

to grant the consent.

One of the sites had previously

housed a dairy, while the other had

a residential home on it. Both buildings

were demolished in 2012.

LIGHTS NEEDED: Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board member Faimeh

Burke stands in the middle of a pedestrian crossing that could have lights

installed to make it safer for those who use it.

Safety upgrade for

pedestrian crossing

• By Andrew King

AN UPGRADE of a

pedestrian crossing in

Bishopdale has been

proposed to make it safer

for pupils and other users.

The Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board

asked city council staff to

investigate the possibility

of installing lights on a

pedestrian crossing on

Sawyers Arms Rd beside

the Papanui Club.

Board member Faimeh

Burke said they were

aware of safety concerns

for school pupils around

that crossing.

“There are a lot of cars

and trucks that use that

road, so it is important we

make sure those who use

it are as safe as possible,”

she said.

Pupils from Casebrook

Intermediate, Cotswold

School and Bishopdale

School use the crossing.

Lady Burke said the cost

is yet to be determined

and public consultation

will begin in November

to find out what the community

thinks.

“Consultation will finish

in November. The design

will be completed by July

2017 and the project is expected

to be completed in

December 2017,” she said.

NO MORE: Legionella bacterium under a microscope.

Spa pool reopened;

cleared of bacteria

• By Andrew King

TESTING FOR the

dangerous legionella

bacterium will be carried

out every two weeks after

an outbreak at Jellie Park

Recreation and Sports

Centre.

The spa pool reopened

last week after the latest

testing proved negative for

the bacterium.

The Canterbury District

Health Board confirmed

the seven water samples

taken from the spa on

August 18 were negative

for legionella bacterium,

meaning it can reopen to

the public.

Legionella bacterium

can cause legionellosis, including

a pneumonia-type

illness called legionnaires’

disease and a mild flu-like

illness called Pontiac

fever.

The spa was closed on

August 12 after initial

testing revealed one of

seven water samples tested

positive for legionella

bacterium.

During its closure, staff

thoroughly decontaminated

the spa and carried

out servicing and maintenance

improvements,

including the installation

of new water jets.

City council head of

recreation and sports John

Filsell said the spa was

popular at Jellie Park so it

was good to have it back

in operation.

“We have worked closely

with the CDHB and our

environmental officers to

develop additional testing

processes going forward.

Regular legionella bacterium

testing will now

be carried out at all city

council spa pools and we

have also implemented

an additional fortnightly

super-chlorination process,”

he said.

“Both these actions

are above the required

industry standards, but

the safety of our users is

our primary concern and

these extra measures will

help to ensure our water

quality remains high.”

Dunedin recently.

Students competed against

choirs from across the country.

School director of music

Janet Kingsbury said it was a

significant achievement for the

group of 24 young singers and

their director, Helen Charlton.

“At the end of 2015, over half

the choir left school, so this

year Resolutions has been very

much in a rebuilding phase.

We are delighted to receive a

bronze award,” she said.

“There have been many long

hours of preparation and the

girls rose to the occasion magnificently

and performed from

the heart.”

Big Sing concludes a busy

period for the school’s music

department following success

for the jazz and chamber

music groups earlier in the

month.

Rangi received both a gold

and silver medal at the Chamber

Music Nationals held in

Auckland.

Gold award winners

Graznya’s Girlz were made

up of Grace McKenzie, Sarah

Lawrence, Victoria Park and

Our People

NOR’WEST NEWS

Community board leader retires

When she first put her

hand up to be part of a

community board in 1995,

Val Carter was a

fresh-faced, concerned

resident who felt

intimidated by the whole

process. Fast-forward 21

years and she is ending her

tenure with the Fendalton-

Waimairi Community Board.

Andrew King talks to her

about life as an elected

official

Wow, 21 years as an elected

official – has it flown by?

It has certainly flown by. It is

surprising how fast time flies, but

I have enjoyed every minute of it.

When you think about it in those

terms, it seems long but it really

has been a very enjoyable time

of my life. It takes a long time

to work out the processes and

realise that the whole machinery

of the city council works slowly.

Describe the feeling you

had when you first put your

nomination in, what was going

through your head?

I think I was nervous because I

didn’t know if I would be elected

and it is a big thing to stand up

and say I want to represent you.

It was new territory for me, as

I had never done anything like

that before. It was quite nerveracking

to be working with very

experienced elected people. It

was quite intimidating.

Who were the incumbents

that you took on?

I was part of the Citizens Team

SERVICE: After

21 years in local

body politics,

Val Carter will

not be seeking

re-election.

MARTIN

HUNTER

back in those days. We were

up against another full team.

I can’t quite remember what

it was called or who was in it,

but we won and got in. It was

a time where the competition

meant there was more robust

campaigning, which meant there

were great options for the community

to make a choice that

would benefit them.

What was the community

board like in the early days?

There were four councillors

and about five members. They

have not changed a lot. They still

have the same purpose now as

they did back then. Giving the

community a voice.

Did you have many clashes

over the years?

Not really. When you are

standing as a team, you work as a

team. Things have changed over

the years. It has never been cutthroat

like national politics, it

has always been polite. The thing

is once you are elected onto the

board you work together. Our

board has always been harmonious.

When did you became chairwoman?

I was nominated chairwoman

in 2007, and have been there for

the last three terms.

You must have seen a few

mayors come and go, what has

been your impression of them?

They have all been different.

Vicki Buck was a wonderful,

optimistic, people person, and

so was Garry Moore. He was

a steady hand and kept things

moving while looking after the

ship very well. Bob Parker was

the best speaker to the public,

with strong media skills.

He had a very tough task

because of the earthquakes, but

I think he did a fantastic job.

Lianne Dalziel has steadied the

ship after the earthquakes quite

nicely.

NOR’WEST NEWS Tuesday September 13 2016 11

after 20 plus years in politics

She is very good at organising

people and policy and shows

genuine concern with everything.

She is very precise with

detail.

Have we had a bad mayor in

your opinion?

I can’t say we have had a bad

mayor, sometimes I don’t agree

on policies but that is the game.

What was it like to be an

elected official during the

earthquakes?

It was very difficult for us

because the elected members

weren’t part of civil defence and

felt slightly pushed to one side.

There was a lot of stress out

there. Our ward didn’t have the

same immediate issues as those

out east and by the coast. We had

pockets that were badly affected;

we had a lady break her back

when she was hit by a falling

chimney which was horrible. We

made sure we talked to people in

our immediate streets to see how

they were.

Looking back, would you do

anything differently?

Not really, no. I did everything

that I could do. I think the one

thing that pleasantly surprised

me was how much work goes

on in the community. Especially

how many volunteers there are

who keep the wheels turning. We

do a lot of work supporting those

volunteers and groups, which is

just amazing. The community

board is so valuable as it allows

residents to have a voice with the

city council.

What is your proudest moment

in the job?

There are a number of things.

Some of the art work in Fendalton

Park – it has made the

place look good. The skate park

in Jellie Park. We put a walkway

around Avonhead Park, which

I recently walked around and

there were heaps of people using

it. Parking issues is one of the

biggest problems still facing our

ward and we have worked hard

to come up with solutions. I was

proud of getting the post office

into the Fendalton centre to

keep that facility going. Also, the

widening of Fendalton Rd was

a good moment for us. There is

plenty to be proud of, but there

is always more to do.

How did you deal with the

criticism that goes along with

being an elected member?

It depends on how personal

people got. All of us can cope

when debate is about the issue.

Have you ever had a moment

where you thought, I don’t

want to do this anymore?

If I have had those thoughts,

they haven’t lasted long. I think

it is the nature of the job and you

have other things in your life, so

you don’t get too down. You have

to be able to take a step back and

reassess.

Your son was on the city

council – must be a family

thing?

Yes, he was on the city council.

He was elected in the Hagley-

Ferrymead Ward. After a huge

natural disaster the job takes its

toll and I think a few from that

city council burnt out. But that is

the job.

So where to now for you?

I have a few projects that

need attention. I haven’t sorted

out my new house; the garden

needs sorting. I will catch up

with some friends and I will find

other interests as time goes on.

the time so I will get into that.

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining

walls is almost complete and we’re aiming to finish construction in December.

The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing

repairs to the city's earthquake-damaged infrastructure after SCIRT.

• Fixing the Northern Relief, one of Christchurch’s biggest wastewater pipes running

through Fendalton, Merivale and St Albans is more than halfway through and will be

completed at the end of the year.

• Essential wastewater repairs in Aikmans Road in Merivale are progressing well and will

be completed at the end of the year.

• Ongoing repairs to the wastewater networks in Fendalton, Strowan, Papanui and

Bryndwr are due to finish at the end of September.

• The historic Helmore’s Lane Bridge was reopened to pedestrians and cyclists on 5

St Albans Catholic School year 5 and 6 pupils enjoyed a

visit from three Canterbury Kings cricket players. They

led a cricket session and taught the children how to play

3bats, a modified cricket game. Principal Annette Sjoberg

said it was a great way to get the pupils excited. “We are

ready for the summer sporting season,” she said.

Marshland School pupils took to the slopes last week during their annual Mt Hutt

skiing trip. Teacher Carolyn Davies said the “great” forecast for the trip got it off to

a fantastic start. “For some, it was their first time up the mountain. The day went

smoothly as the organisation from Mt Hutt’s administration and ski instructors was

outstanding . . . our pupils did not stop smiling and have had, in their own words, the

best day of the year,” she said.

Burnside hooker picked

for national schools’ team

SPORTS

• By Gordon Findlater

PERRY KARATI has been

named in the New Zealand

Schools’ rugby squad after

a stand-out season with the

Burnside High School first XV.

The hooker was all nerves last

Monday, hoping for the phone to

ring and hear that he had been

named in the squad.

He knew that those selected in

the team would be given a call at

some stage on Monday.

However, it wasn’t until the

evening that Karati’s phone rung

to deliver the good news.

“It was a long day, (but) when

I found out I was stoked. I had

finally made it – one more step towards

the next goal,” said Karati.

Karati will now take part in a

three-day training camp at the

end of the month in Auckland.

He is also hopeful of gaining

a rugby scholarship at Lincoln

University through the Crusaders

academy as he looks to push his

case for provincial and Super

Rugby in the future.

The year 13 student is now in

his fourth year with the Burnside

first XV and has been one of the

school’s longest serving players,

bringing up his 50th cap earlier

this year.

Karati’s time at Burnside has

come with plenty of ups and

downs. When he first played for

the first XV as a year 10 student,

they were considered one of the

easy beats in the UC Championship.

That has certainly changed in

recent years. Burnside won the

championship plate 12 months

ago and last month advanced to

the national top four co-ed tournament

after winning the South

Island co-ed title by defeating

South Otago High School 20-14.

The three-day camp begins on

September 24.

The New Zealand Schools’

team will play against Australia

Schools and Fiji Schools in early

October.

SOUTH ISLAND CHAMPS: Christchurch Boys’ High School

have been crowned South Island basketball champions

after defeating Otago Boys’ High School 92-57 in the grandfinal.

The South Island schools tournament took place over

four days at Ashburton’s EA Networks Centre. CBHS faced

some familiar opposition on their way to the title, defeating

Cashmere High School 94-75 in the semi-final. Jack Lang

proved the difference hitting eight three pointers in the

semi-final victory. The tournament win means that CBHS

have booked a spot in the national tournament, which will be

played in Palmerston North at the end of the month. They will

be joined by Cashmere and Christ’s College. Meanwhile, the

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School, Middleton Grange and Rangiora High

School girls’ teams have also qualified for nationals.

Second XI bring home

national hockey title

WINNERS: Rangi Ruru students Annabelle Jones (left), Luca

Swale, Mikayla Smith and Olivia Goodwillie won the Jane

Sullivan Trophy. ​

Rangi Ruru wins

Jane Sullivan Trophy

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

has won an equestrian trophy

named after a former student.

The school’s gold team

battled wet and windy conditions

recently to beat 22 other

Canterbury teams and win the

Jane Sullivan Trophy.

The event was held in the

National Equestrian Centre at

McLeans Island.

Rangi Ruru’s blue team

placed a close forth.

The school’s director of

equestrian Pippa Young said

it was the first time Rangi

Ruru had won the trophy since

2004.

“Jane Sullivan is a former

Rangi Ruru student, so to

receive the trophy named after

her from her was very significant

to us all,” she said.

“The girls performed brilliantly,

riding almost without

any faults in show jumping or

cross-country.

“That’s quite exceptional

when you consider that all of

the riders are in their first few

years of secondary education,

mostly years 9 and 10.”

“These girls are going from

strength to strength, which is

testament to their dedication

and skill, as well as the excellent

equestrian programme we

run here at Rangi Ruru.”

RANGI RURU’S second XI

hockey team has won the Chris

Arthur Cup in Hamilton.

They beat local rival St Margaret’s

College 4-0 in the national

hockey tournament.

Assistant coach Amy McKerchar

said the team’s sense of self

belief was key to their success.

“The girls were determined they

could improve on their placing

from last year. And improve they

certainly did,” she said.

“They are a true team of champions

and an absolute pleasure to

work with.”

The first pool game against

Westlake Girls High School

showed the girls were wellprepared,

securing a 6-1 win.

The second game against Queen

Margaret College did much to

strengthen the resolve of the

group as they roared home with a

massive 19-0 win.

The team’s only loss of the tournament

was against another local

team, Christchurch Girls’ High

School, going down 2-0.

Having secured top spot in

their pool, the quarter-final

match-up against St Cuthbert’s

College was a tightly contested

game, which resulted in a 1-0

win to progress Rangi Ruru to

the semi-final against defending

champion’s Whangarei Girls’

CHAMPIONS: Rangi Ruru’s second XI hockey team won the Chris

Arthur Cup, beating St Margaret’s College 4-0. ​

High School.

Playing in a similar fashion,

the girls held onto their 1-0 lead

to book themselves a spot in the

final.

Rangi Ruru’s most valuable

player for the tournament was

goalkeeper Alys Mathew who had

a solid tournament conceding

only three goals.

They also had the two top goal

scorers of the tournament – Jemima

Bell who netted 11 and Haley

Stephens who scored eight.

In other winter tournament

results, the Rangi Ruru senior basketball

team finished second at the

South Island secondary schools’

competition in Christchurch, losing

in the final to Waimea College

63-47.

This secured them a spot in the

national secondary schools’ competition

to be held in Palmerston

North from September 26 to

October 1.

En route: Icelandic horses in Canty

• By Scott Bamford

ICELANDIC HORSES, said to

have been brought to Iceland by

the Vikings, are increasing in

number around Canterbury.

Inga Currey, owner and operator

of Christchurch Icelandic

Horse Treks, is using them in her

business. There are other owners,

and breeders, of icelandic horses

around Christchurch, Rangiora,

Oxford, Waikuku, Ashburton,

Oamaru and Twizel.

“The first sort of bigger breeder

was in Oamaru, the stud was

called Vindholar Southern Icelandics,

they were the pioneers

here. There is a breeder in Ashburton,”

she said.

She said three of her clients in

Christchurch had bought icelandic

horses, and two of them have

bred their first foal.

“For the last two years we have

even had some horses in the

Christchurch AMP show,” she

said.

Mrs Currey, originally from

just south of Frankfurt, Germany,

has lived in New Zealand

since moving here with her Kiwi

husband in 2000. She has ridden

icelandic horses since she was 18.

“They were brought into Iceland

by the Vikings, over 1000

years ago. They have been purebred

there since then. No icelandic

horse that leaves Iceland can

ever go back and no other horses

can be imported either,” she said.

Her trekking business stems

from her passion for the breed

and being conveniently located

near Spencer Park Beach.

“I collected horses for the family,

who then weren’t interested

… I had the horses and I had

the location. You couldn’t ride

icelandic horses anywhere here

yet, that’s why I had the idea.”

Mrs Currey said one of her favourite

traits of icelandic horses

was “definitely the tölt.”

“When people experience the

tölt for the first time, their expressions

and the things they say

are lovely to see,” she said.

The tölt is a unique gait allowing

the horse to move in a

similar fashion to walking, but at

a running speed. This makes for

a very smooth ride.

Jennie Boerema, president

of the Icelandic Horses New

Zealand association, explained

riding with a full glass of beer

has been used to demonstrate

how smooth the tölt can be.

“[During] the beer tölt, we

have a glass of beer in hand and

we use a wooden plank to ride

over so you can hear the hoof

beats. You can just sit still and

drink your beer while riding. We

thought that was very conveni-

ent, especially in New Zealand

where you love your beer,” she

said.

Mrs Boerema said icelandic

horses were well suited to the

terrain of the south.

“If you look at the terrain,

especially of the south, it is very

easy for the icelandic horse to fit

in. It’s similar to Iceland,” she

said.

HYDRATE TO ELEVATE

We all know drinking water is important, but the

majority of us simply don’t drink enough even

though we know it makes us feel

great when we do. We look at the benefits and

motivate you to drink more with a few tips on

how to make it just a little more palatable.

With over a quarter of Kiwis

consuming less than two

glasses of water a day

and only 5% drinking

more than the recommended eight, the

message obviously hasn’t hit home on the

importance of hydrating our body.

A recent survey conducted by

SodaStream found that Cantabrians are

particularly guilty when it comes to their

water intake.

With 82% drinking less than six

glasses of water a day, but with over 85%

admitting they feel healthier when they

drink more water, something needs to

be done to bridge the gap in terms of

what we know to be true and what we’re

actually doing about it.

This same survey revealed that

although 41% of us limit how many soft

drinks we consume due to our concerns

over sugar content, the same number

of people said tea or coffee is this their

number one drink of choice.

Some people even believe that the water

consumed in their cup of Joe constitutes

part of their water intake. This is a fallacy.

As caffeine actually dehydrates us, as

does alcohol too, it means we need to

drink even more water to compensate.

Not so surprisingly the reason we don’t

drink nearly enough water is that we

simply forget. Now with apps you can

download direct to your smart phone,

there are no more excuses.

Further studies proved that people

who had a SodaStream machine in their

homes were more likely to drink more

water.

In fact, the study showed that people

drank 30% more water.

For those of us who aren’t used

to drinking water like it’s going

out of fashion, there are plenty of ways

to increase the fun factor while still

being healthy.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical sense in sydenham sees clients with a range

of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

PhysiotheraPist ietje van

stolk suggests that a major part of the

pain could be due to muscle pain rather

than simply arthritis. “even if an x-ray

shows arthritis, the reason for the pain

may be the muscles around the joint,”

she explains. The images show how

a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front

of the shoulder and a muscle knot all the

way near the groin can give an ache in

the knee (especially at night in bed).

ietje recalls one case where an 89

year old client with severe arthritis who

walked with a stick, told her, “i will

end up in a wheelchair, i cannot put

any weight through my right leg due to

pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within

4 treatments, she was walking with

her stick but without the severe pain,”

says ietje. “The arthritis was one of the

factors that made her muscles spasm but

the other was that older people move

less and the flexed position the hip is

in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could

have been “given up on” or told to live

with the pain, she made a difference to

her health and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can

be the reason for your knee pain or

your shoulder pain and the same few

treatments could make a huge difference

for you.

at Physical sense, hands-on

techniques (massage and triggerpoint

deactivation techniques) are used

to release the muscles. The client

also gets a home exercise program

designed to mobilize and stretch the

joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength

and balance. They teach a movement

sequence that stretches the joint in all

directions whilst the client is able to lie

safely on their bed, perfect for older or

SHOULDER

HIP PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

less mobile clients.

in many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to

maintain it, is enough to stay on top of

the problem. if severe arthritis is the

underlying cause, some maintenance

therapy may be necessary, but that is

often more affordable and, for older

patients, better tolerated than surgery. in

very few treatments the client will know

if it is going to work for them or not,

without financial commitment.

Chronic pain in one

of your joints?

Even if your joint is not in the best

shape, a major part of the pain could

be caused by the muscles surrounding

the joint.

At Physical Sense we have good results

with releasing the muscles (with hands

on techniques) and increasing your

strength and flexibility. Within a few

treatments you will know if this is

what you need.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

The BMW experts

BMWs and BMW minis are some of the most recognisable and

best selling cars around. Known for their European engineering

as well as their stylish appearance, it’s important to go to the

experts when looking for parts and servicing.

Conveniently located on McAlpine St in

Sockburn, Eurocare and Eurorec Ltd offers

a wide range of servicing and repairs options

and because they are also specialist BMW

dismantlers, they also have a huge range of parts

available to trade and individual buyers. And if

they don’t have it in stock in their own large

inventory, they can source new or used parts at

your request from around New Zealand.

Whether your beloved car needs a full

replacement engine or body panels, or it just

needs window clips, the knowledgeable teams

at Eruocare and Eurorec can supply or track

down the correct part for your model and

year. When dismantling a vehicle, they make

sure they rescue and restore as many parts as

possible for reuse on other vehicles.

To keep your BMW running smoothly and

safely, they will also repair and service it. If a

vehicle has failed its WOF, needs a service or

requires running repairs, the

team of specialist mechanics

will work quickly and efficiently

to have your car back on the road as soon

as possible. This includes everything from

oil changes, new filters and brake pads to

gear box, suspension, clutches and exhaust

systems. Their team is highly trained and, as

they are BMW specialists, they have all the

knowledge and skills necessary to provide a

high quality standard of workmanship. Their

workshop includes diagnostic machines so

they can easily find the source of any problems.

Open five days a week and on Saturdays by

appointment, Eurocare and Eurorec Ltd’s teams

are on hand to help with all your BMW parts,

servicing, repairs and dismantling needs. Call

today on (03) 341 6678, email eurorec@clear.

net.nz or call in to see them at 65 McAlpine St

in Sockburn.
