Bid to open liquor store opposed

• By Andrew King

FEARS A proposed liquor store

in Harewood could encourage

an increase of people drinking

in public parks has community

leaders and residents rallying to

stop it.

The proposed liquor store

would be built on the corner of

Harewood Rd and Trafford St

but resident Aaron Bree said it

will bring more problems than it

is worth.

“We have a number of parks

near it, it is right in the heart

opening

soon!

of a residential area and there

are schools all around it. I have

spoken to some in the neighbourhood

and we don’t want it,”

he said.

There are four schools within

2km and seven parks within a

1.5km radius.

Nunweek Park, 500m from

the proposed site, is a known

hangout for people drinking and

Mr Bree fears that will only get

worse with another outlet.

He said if it had been there

when he was looking to buy his

house he would have looked elsewhere,

so he is starting a petition

to block the licence from being

granted.

The off-licence that has been

applied for would be for 2a Trafford

St to sell alcohol between

the hours of 7am-10pm, Monday

to Sunday.

Police said a decision on

whether they will oppose it will

be made next week.

Aaron Keown, who was recently

elected as a city councillor

in the Harewood Ward, said the

area is already “well serviced”

when it comes to alcohol stores.

“We should be giving the

power of a veto to the residents

and the community boards to

stop these stores going into areas

that clearly don’t need them,” he

said.

He said giving the boards

“some teeth” could be written

into the Local Alcohol Plan.

Breens Intermediate principal

Nikki Clarke said she was

surprised to hear about a

proposal for a liquor licence in

the area.

“Given there are five licensed

premises already within

1km of this address I will be

very interested to watch the

community response around

this proposal,” she said.

Linda Chen, who was

recently elected onto the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board, lives close to

Nunweek Park and said she was

against the idea as soon as she

heard it.

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

I’m afraid I’m going to doing a

bit of rant referring to “back in

the day”. It appears that residents

are going to try and stop a bottle

shop going in on the corner of

Harewood Rd and Trafford St

(front page). I commend them

because, back in the day folks,

we survived not having booze in

every supermarket and at every

suburban shopping area. Alcohol

is far more accessible that it used

to be and I need not bend your ear

about how harmful it can be. It

will be interesting to see who wins

the war.

Fantastic to the heritage items

such as gargoyles being reincorporated

into St Andrew’s College new

$10 million Centennial Chapel.

The chapel was earthquake-damaged

and services have been held

in its gymnasium since. The new

chapel that will have 700 seats and

great acoustics for musical performances.

Pigeon problem continues

• By Andrew King

RESIDENTS IN Northwood

are at their wits’ end with

problematic pigeons pooping on

their properties.

In November, Nor’West News

reported that Giles Goulden and

Suzanne Walker asked the city

council if there was anything it

could do about their neighbour’s

80 pigeons in Janal Pl – which

had been defecating on their

outdoor furniture, deck and

laundry.

But the owner of the property

with the pigeons said there

are no laws around having too

many and the neighbours need

to “mind their own business.”

Mr Goulden and Ms Walker

moved into their Northwood

home in 2014 when the neighbour

had only a few birds in a

small coop.

The city council worked with

the owner of the pigeons and

their neighbours and negotiated

most of the birds to be moved

elsewhere.

The negotiation took place in

April with ongoing contact until

June when it was confirmed the

numbers had reduced significantly.

But Ms Walker said some still

remain and now the numbers

are starting to grow.

“They have removed two

coops but a third remains and

while pigeon numbers had

dropped from about 80 to 20,

they are slowly on the rise

again,” she said.

Recently, another neighbour

contacted Ms Walker and said

she was at “breaking point” and

about to phone the city council

and “just scream.”

She said it was “completely

unacceptable that our kids can

no longer play outside” due

to the mess left behind by the

birds.

The owner of the pigeons,

who did not want to be named,

said they still had some on the

property, but the majority were

elsewhere.

“They are the worst neighbour’s

I have ever had,” he said.

He said she had been complaining

about everything, even

a bit of rubbish on the side of

the road that had blown out of

his bin.

“We don’t even answer the

door when (Ms Walker) turns

up, sometimes it is really late at

night,” he said.

Ms Walker confirmed she

had been over once late at night

to return some rubbish she

HAD ENOUGH: Suzanne Walker is tired of cleaning pigeon

droppings off her property. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

had found from his bins on the

street.

City council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston

confirmed there is no specific

rules or bylaws regarding the

keeping of pigeons in the city.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Should

there be a limit on how

many pigeons can be kept

in the city?

In Brief

CONSULTATION OPEN

The city council has opened consultation

on safety improvements for

pedestrians and cyclists on Sawyers

Arms Rd, between Glasnevin Dr

and Cotswold Ave. It proposes to

install a traffic signal-controlled pedestrian

crossing. To improve safety

for cyclists, cycle lanes are proposed

on both sides of the road within the

project area. As part of the safety

improvements, the bus stop on the

south-side of Sawyers Arms Rd will

be relocated east of the pedestrian

crossing outside 295 and 297 Sawyers

Arms Rd, which will result in

the loss of three parking spaces.

Visit the city council’s ‘have your

say’ page to make a submission.

ROUNDABOUT REMOVED

The upgrade of the Westminster

St, Roosevelt Ave and Courtenay St

intersection has been completed and

the roads around it are now open.

SCIRT removed the roundabout

and replaced it with an intersection.

The SCIRT project took about three

months.

FIRST COUNCIL MEETING

The inaugural city council meeting

will be held on Thursday at 4pm.

Recently elected city councillors

Mike Davidson (Papanui), Aaron

Keown (Harewood), Raf Manji

(Waimairi), Pauline Cotter (Innes)

and Jamie Gough (Fendalton) will

all be sworn into office.

Keown’s time to act

Each week we

will be asking

city councillors in

the north-west to

give us their views

on issues in their

wards. This week, newly

elected Harewood city

councillor Aaron Keown

talks about being elected

and what he intends to do

over the next three years

It’s great to be back at the council

table during this important time

in the history of Christchurch

and I’m honoured to be the

first councillor for the newly

established Harewood Ward.

The city has voted and all those

who now sit at the council table

have been put there by those

who have chosen to take up their

democratic right and vote.

I campaigned hard on the

issue of getting traffic lights at

the intersection on Harewood/

Breens/Gardiners Rds, keeping

rates locked to the rate of

inflation and cleaning up our

waterways.

Now it’s time to deliver on

my promises, which can be

easier said than done, so I

was excited when I met newly

elected community board

PRIORITY: Aaron Keown campaigned on getting traffic lights

at the intersection of Harewood, Breens and Gardiners Rds.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

member Linda Chen (Harewood

Ward) and the first thing she said

to me was “Now lets get on and

get those lights in.”

This is the sort of ‘can do’

attitude we need in Christchurch

right now.

I was even more buoyed by a

bright future for Christchurch

when we met as a new city

council the day after the election,

and all members laid out their

visions for Christchurch over the

next three years and it turns out

we are all on the same page.

As mayor, Lianne Dalziel

looked to encourage everyone to

support each other in getting the

job done.

I feel that Christchurch is

about to see some real progress

over the next three years.

I respect the wishes of those

who voted and I look forward

to working with and supporting

those who were lucky enough to

be chosen.

Stay in the kitchen

when cooking

• By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk

Management Officer

HOW LONG does it take for 10

litres or more of water in a large

saucepan to boil away and then

the pan to melt from the heat (in

this case a gas cooker) and set

fire to the building?

Well in the case of a house in

Stanley St, Sydenham, last Friday

night it took eight hours.

That’s the time between the

occupant forgetting the pan was

on and leaving and the place being

fully involved in fire.

Five fire trucks and a command

unit attended and, as

you would expect, damage was

severe.

This has to be counted as a

cooking fire. There were two

more reported this week. One of

them involved someone being

taken to hospital with smoke

inhalation.

It also appears this victim may

have had two or three drinks

too many. There are some classic

recipes for disaster in the above

incidents.

The first is relatively common

but doesn’t always mean a house

is completely destroyed.

The second is also quite common,

particularly amongst our

fatality statistics.

Don’t drink and fry! And

stay in the kitchen when cooking.

Should be simple.

There was a smile to be had

after Woolston’s crew were sent

to Truscotts Rd up the Heathcote

Valley on Monday to rescue

some ducklings from a drain.

A thorough search failed to

find them.

The radio message back to

comms stated ‘no sign of ducklings,

Chapel to open next week

READY TO

GO: The

$10 million

Centennial

Chapel will

open at St

Andrew’s

College on

October 25. ​

ST ANDREW’S College

much-loved gargoyles will

return when its new $10 million

Centennial Chapel opens on

October 25.

Since the February 2011 earthquakes

the school has held chapel

services in its gymnasium after

losing its Memorial Chapel to

damage.

Heritage items salvaged from

the original chapel have been

incorporated into the new

design, including the stained

glass windows, original doors,

stonework and the much-loved

gargoyles.

The bell is back hanging from

a new bell tower, which has been

placed in the exact location of the

original tower.

The chapel was designed by

award-winning architect Patrick

Clifford of Architectus, it seats

700 and has state-of-the-art

acoustics making it a desirable

venue for musical performances.

Performances from the kapa

haka group, choir, and singers

Mark Tavendale and Joshua Pike

will welcome the community and

the school to their new space.

The building will be officially

opened by the Moderator of

the Presbyterian Church Right

Reverend Andrew Norton.

Architectus won a design competition

to deliver the project and

the chapel’s unique design has attracted

national interest from

architects and engineers due to

its complexity.

The intricate steel structure

involved 150 tonnes of steel and

innovative engineering solutions

by Holmes Consulting.

The folded roof reflects

Christchurch’s Gothic heritage.

Extensive groundwork was

undertaken on the site with 512

rammed aggregate piers installed

in the ground.

It will be home to The Village

Presbyterian Church (St

Stephen’s and St Giles’ parishes)

on Sunday mornings and use

for community events will be

welcomed.

A fundraising effort by the

community raised $3.5m of the

target of $6m.

The dedication of the

Centennial Chapel will be livestreamed

at www.stac100.co.nz

from 10.30am on October 25.

The school welcomes people to

go along and tour the new chapel

at the open days on October 27,

28 and 29, from 11am–1pm.

In Brief

FIRST MEETINGS

The newly formed community

boards in the north-west will

have their first meetings at

the end of this month. The

Papanui-Innes Community

Board’s inaugural meeting will

be on Wednesday, October

26 at 1.30pm in the Papanui

Service Centre on the cnr of

Langdons Rd and Restell St. The

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board’s inaugural

meeting will be on Tuesday,

October 25 at 3.30pm in the

Fendalton Service Centre on the

cnr of Jeffreys and Clyde Rds.

The public are invited to attend.

ROAD CLOSURES

Fortune St, Mairehau, will be

closed for the next two weeks

between the hours of 7am and

6pm so repairs can be made to

the wastewater system. The work

will generate some low volume

noise. If driveway access will be

restricted, a note will be left in

the affected property’s letterbox

the day before. Berwick St, St

Albans, will be closed between

property number 37 and

Forfar St for the next two days.

Marshland Rd’s south-bound

lane between Hercules St and

New Brighton Rd will be closed

for the next two days so a waste

water vacuum and tank system

can be installed. These works

are weather dependent and may

extend past Thursday. All work

will be done between the hours

of 8pm and 6am.

NO E. COLI IN WATER

Fine sand is the likely cause

for water discolouration in the

Avonhead-Russley area. Samples

of the water taken from the

area have tested negative for E.

coli. The water was tested as a

precautionary measure after

some residents in the Avonhead-

Russley area complained their

tap water was discoloured. The

city council responded quickly

to the reports, flushing the

network and shutting down

the relevant pump station. Test

results showed no signs of E. coli

in the water.

BURST WATER PIPE

Christchurch Girls’ High School

was closed on Thursday and

students sent home after a

burst water main disrupted the

school’s water supply. The pipe

on Kilmarnock St in Riccarton

burst in the morning. The city

council investigated the cause

of the burst. It was one of four,

all in Riccarton, to break.

Two ruptures were found on

Kilmarnock St, one on Bartlett

St and another on Ayr St. All

were thought to be connected

to the same pump station and

repairs were completed the same

day.

Bid to beat the bumps

No airport access

from Wairakei Rd

ACCESS TO the airport

from Wairakei Rd has been

permanently closed as part of the

Russley Rd upgrade project.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency closed the road on

Thursday night.

The change at Wairakei Rd is

necessary for safety, given the

proximity of the intersection to

the Russley Rd and Memorial

Ave airport interchange lanes.

Motorists will still be able to

exit Wairakei Rd onto Russley

Rd from the east, heading

towards the Memorial Ave intersection.

Motorists on Russley Rd heading

south towards the airport

will also be able to turn left onto

Wairakei Rd.

There will be no direct access

to the airport precinct area and

Orchard Rd from Wairakei Rd.

The Harewood Rd roundabout

is now completed and the underpass

shared path for cyclists and

pedestrians is completed and is

in use.

Removing traffic islands

and the roundabout at the

Wairakei Rd intersection with

Russley Rd is likely to take place

at weekends and off-peak hours

in October.

The roundabout is likely to be

reduced to one lane during this

time.

PARTS OF Bealey Ave will be

fixed this summer as a major

project in city council’s $176

million, city-wide road resealing

programme.

The 10-year road resealing

programme is part of a wider

city council strategy of ongoing

repairs and maintenance to

roads, underground pipes and

footpaths.

A number of key city roads

are scheduled to be smoothed

and resealed this financial year,

including Bealey Ave from

Papanui Rd to Barbadoes St on

the north side and Colombo St

to Barbadoes St on the south.

City council’s services general

manager David Adamson said

it has prepared a programme of

road, footpath and pipe repairs

to follow the work of SCIRT.

Funding has been allocated for

the work and will be carried out

over coming years starting in

early 2017.

“SCIRT has done a fantastic

job to finish the rebuild work

it was tasked with . . . now the

city council is ready to pick up

the mantle and carry out the

remaining work as part of our

ongoing maintenance renewal

programmes.”

REPAIR NEEDED: A number of key city roads are scheduled

to be smoothed and resealed, including Bealey Ave from

Papanui Rd to Barbadoes St on the north side and Colombo

St to Barbadoes St on the south. ​

The road resealing is part of

the city council’s $1 billion, 10-

year total roading programme

across the city which includes

the Accessible City, Sumner

Lyttelton Corridor and Major

Cycleways projects.

The budget includes $15.6 million

for footpath repairs, which

were not generally included in

SCIRT’s programme.

Childcare centre opening

• By Andrew King

A NEW childhood centre will

open on Wairakei Rd beside a

primary school.

The Little Wonders Early

Childhood Centre will open

its doors in June 2017 and

will work with its neighbour,

Wairakei School, to provide a

pathway for pupils.

Managing director Ben Hurst

said the first Christchurch centre

has been some time coming.

“The centre we are

constructing is designed to be

Pupils set salmon

ST MARGARET’S College

pupils braved the rain on

Wednesday to release salmon,

they had cared for over the past

few months, into the Avon River.

They let the slippery creatures

loose beside the Carlton Mill

footbridge.

It took a number of months

to get the fish strong enough to

survive in the wild, but the pupils

were up to the challenge.

Teacher Paulette Double said

they all had a turn at feeding the

tiny fish daily which they had

been looking after from the time

they were eggs.

“The leader of each week looks

after them, it’s her responsibility

to feed them and make sure that

they are fine and the tank is nice

and clean.

“When they hatch … they are

still the egg and they have got a

little head and little tail and they

survive in the egg sac for a very

long time,” she said.

Fish and Game initiative coordinator

Peter Robinson said

pupils got to understand how the

local ecosystem worked.

“Salmon are pretty cool fish

to raise and of course they have

been part of the fabric of Canterbury

society for 100 years,”

he said.

Mr Robinson said the pupils

got to raise the salmon in the

purpose-built tank and learnt

a lot about the importance of

clean water.

“These kids certainly learn

about the fish in the tank and

the need for clean water because

you can lose some if the water

quality is not right,” he said.

Ms Double said although it

was sad to see the tiny creatures

go, the pupils were ready to say

goodbye.

SCIRT programme on

the home straight

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.

Progress in your neighbourhood

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

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

scheduled to be completed by 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.

• Repairs to the waste water networks in Papanui and Bryndwr will be finished

by December.

• St Albans’ work is progressing well, and will be finished by the end of December.

Your support is helping us to get the job done.

NOR’WEST NEWS

Marlene Bennetts

Children’s author writes book

Author Marlene Bennetts, 78, has finished writing her

latest children’s book, The Little Drummer Boy, to

raise money for her earthquake-damaged church in

Opawa. She spoke to Caitlin Miles about her roving

childhood and writing her memoirs

Can you tell me about The

Little Drummer Boy?

I was approached to write

something for the church in

November last year that could

be ready for Christmas. I sat on

it for a while wondering what I

could write and Evelyn Hille said

to me why not write something

on The Little Drummer Boy and

so that’s what I did.

How long have you belonged

to the Opawa Community

Church?

I’ve lived in Opawa for about

eight and half years and belonged

to the church for at least

six and half I think.

How long have you been

writing?

I have been writing for about

30 years now, children’s books

and poems mostly.

What made you want to be a

writer?

I’ve always wanted to write. I

hated poetry. I was always interested

in reading. We didn’t have

libraries in the one-room schools

so I didn’t get my first book until

I was eight. It was Peter Pan – I

loved that book, my grand-kids

have it now. When I was

growing up I used to tell my

brothers stories to get them to

do things for me when I didn’t

want to.

How many siblings do you

have?

I have two younger brothers.

Did you grow up in Christchurch?

No I didn’t. We moved roughly

15 times so it’s hard to pinpoint

where I grew up. I was born in

Westport, though.

Why did you move so often?

My father worked in sawmills,

so we moved around a lot. We

were in a lot of small towns that

only had one-classroom schools.

Most of them had basically the

same text books throughout, so

I would read a couple of chapters

ahead before starting at a new

school and the teachers would

think I was really clever until

they caught up to the chapter I

was on.

Were you a bit cheeky in

school Marlene?

I had a strong character and

got bored quickly I think is what

it was. I ended up being prefect

of my high school so I can’t have

been that bad! Just a little cheeky.

Was it hard moving from

school to school?

It wasn’t so bad when I was

young. I do remember this one

boy used to ride a white horse to

school and every day my brother

and I would have to run home

because he would chase us on

his horse and get it to nip at

us. When I turned 11, I started

to realise that my family were

considered low on the social

class because our dad worked in

the sawmill. My dad left school

at 14-and-a-half but he was very

resilient.

That was young to leave

school.

It wasn’t that uncommon back

then. My parents were young

when they had me. My mum

was 17 and my dad was 18. Mum

had all three of us before she

was 21. We kind of grew up with

our parents, they were like older

siblings. Well, they were parents

first but you know. It was great.

You see I have a lot to write

about for my memoirs.

How will you write everything

from your memory?

I have kept journals for the

last 30 or 40 years, I use them to

write stories and poems too. I

can reflect on what people were

wearing during the time. How

they wore their hair, things like

that. I write about what I know

so I recall on my memories a lot

which is what I’m doing for my

memoirs.

to rebuild community church

Did you end up settling anywhere

for a while?

No. Even after we got married,

we kept moving around. We

used to buy houses and do them

up before we sold them on. So

we were moving all around the

North Island. Then in 1987, we

heard of a wee cottage in a place

called Blackball and I said, as

long as I don’t have to use a long

drop, I don’t mind and it had an

indoor toilet so we bought it. I

had never heard of Blackball in

my life and we just packed up

and went there. I hadn’t been in

the South Island since I was nine

and my husband had never been

so it was pretty big. We bought

the house for $10,000 – you

wouldn’t dream of that now.

Did you start writing when

you lived there?

Yes. My husband decided to

retire when we moved there so

he was 56. I use to have a room

in the house which looked out

onto the mountains where I

would go to write. That was

my special spot. We had our

children by that stage but they

were all grown up. I would just

shut myself off and Hec would

keep supporting me.

Were there times when you

wanted to give up on writing?

I was 48 when I wrote my first

poem called Stolen Virginity. I

went to this group where people

read out their poems and had

them criticised by other writers.

These were respected and widely

published writers and I was

sitting there wondering why I

was there and what I was doing.

I got up and read it out and came

home saying to my husband

there is no way I am ever going

back there, I’m not writing

anymore, and he managed to

convince me it wasn’t that bad

so I went back the next month

and it was the best thing I ever

did. For every acceptance letter

I got for a piece, I got about

10 rejections. So it was pretty

common for me to say I’m not

doing this anymore and chuck

it all in the bin. And Hec, my

husband, would pull it all out

again and convince me to keep

writing. If it wasn’t for him, I

wouldn’t be talking to you today.

HER ROCK:

Marlene’s late

husband Hec

was her biggest

supporter,

encouraging

her to keep

writing when she

considered giving

up several times. ​

He was always my rock.

Your husband seems like a big

part of your motivation, how

did you two meet?

We were doing high jump

and that was very different then

compared to what it is now. We

used to jump and fall into a pit of

sawdust. So anyway, I was doing

high jump and I stopped just

short of the pit and tore a whole

load of ligaments in my knee. I

needed surgery but it was more

risky back then. I had wanted

to be in the Air Force but that

wasn’t likely and, after that, it

certainly wasn’t going to happen.

So I ended up moving 800

miles (1287km) away to live

with my Grandmother to work

as a secretary – I was 16 at

the time. Hec was working in

the garage and he was 23 so it

worked out.

What have been some of your

highlights?

I wrote this poem called The

Miner’s Widow and I got a letter

from a man who had picked up

a copy and he said he had read

it crying because it was the tale

of his mum. That was really

touching.

You received a New Zealand

Order of Merit?

Yes, that was a real shock and

an honour to receive – I couldn’t

believe it. I read the letter and

wondered what I was receiving it

for. I never dreamed I would get

one. I just wished my dad could

have been there to see it.

How often do you write each

day?

I’m not sure how many a day,

but about 15 hours a week now.

I’ve taken a bit of a step back

from how much I used to do

but I still work away on my

laptop.

Take the Green Challenge at Coringa Golf Club

Never 3 Putt Again!

If you enjoy pure golf, clean air, natural wildlife and the sound of birds singing

instead of road and industrial residential noise, Coringa Golf Club is the place

for you!

Although only 10km from Bishopdale shopping centre, you feel a million miles

away!

Relax and enjoy our spectacular and well-groomed layout as it winds its way

around the 1.5 hectares of Mcleans Island recreational reserve land.

It’s hard to believe golf this good, this beautiful, this quiet, yet this affordable

still exists anywhere in Canterbury.

Our staff shares your passion for the game and is eager to make your time at

Coringa memorable for all the right reasons.

With updated bar and catering facilities, you will find our club an excellent

location for your next golfing outing or corporate event.

Golf is a favourite past times for many. To the player, just holding the club in

your hand, setting your stance, and taking that swing brings an adrenaline

rush. Watching the ball hang in the air and trying to direct it’s landing with your

head to the precise spot you wanted it to land adds to that intrigue.

Golf is a very personal sport. A sport where in the end it all depends on you.

How you’re feeling for the day and your personal performance. You are the

only one responsible for the scorecard results even

when playing against others in a round.

Have you played the challenge of the Coringa Course?

The Coringa Golf Club located at 680 Mcleans Island,

this quality course offers a challenge to any golfer.

golf course. Since its inception the course has continued

to be developed to the stage where it now caters to all

types of players, as members, guests, and social players

Black 6493 Championship Length

Blue 6146 Long Club Course

White 5762 Medium Club Course

Yellow 5366 Ladies and shorter club course

Purple 2807 Beginners and advanced juniors course

Junior 420 metre 6 hole course

The club offers excellent practice facilities with access to two practice ranges

of 450 metres each, one of which includes a covered driving range. Not one, not

two, but three New Zealand PGA qualified professionals are available for your

coaching goals. These being Peter Davies, Wayne Davies and Matt McDowell

all of whom have had considerable club coaching backgrounds.

School event to engage families

MAIREHAU HIGH hosted

more than 110 people at a significant

whanau and families

evening in the school hall.

The Building On Success

focus team of teachers, led by

Angela Marshall, designed,

consulted about, and prepared

the evening as part of their

work in engaging our families,

and building our relationships

with them.

The focus is to improve communications

with whanau and

families, as they work to meet

the learning, cultural, and

other needs of the students.

The particular focus for this

event was on strengthening

bonds with Maori and Pacific

communities, including Cook

Islands, Samoan, Tongan and

Fijian Indian families.

The evening began with a

formal welcome to everyone

from deputy principal Mark

Bell and then an introduction

University’s Pacific liaison officer spoke about her own

to our student leaders for the

evening, Kavita Pillay, Anahera

Sebastian Anae-Ah Sue.

These young leaders ran the

evening with confidence and

style, introducing items and

guest speakers, presenting

karakia (prayer) and orders of

service for a three-course meal

and providing acknowledgements

at the end.

The guests, former Mairehau

and encouraged our students

to set lofty but attainable goals.

A number of our students

and their families contributed

with musical items.

Families spoke with humility

and appreciation about

the school’s genuine efforts to

connect with them.

The hope now is for the

school to have an evening of

this scale every two years in

order to support the learning

aspirations of Maori and

Pacific youth.

CBHS wins on tour

• by Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’

High School had an ideal

preparation for the cricket

season with a two-week

trip to Australia during the

school holidays.

The school’s first XI and

a development team, made

up of the second and third

XI squads, played six games

each over the space of 13

days in New South Wales.

The tour has taken place

every second year for the

past 14 years.

Both teams won all of

their games against quality

Sydney secondary school

teams, which included The

King’s School, St Ignatius

Riverview, Shore Grammar

School and Newington College.

“Some of the grounds we

played on were first class

material. The conditions

were something we wouldn’t

be able to replicate at home

at this time of year,” said

master in charge of cricket

Matt Parr.

They were also given some

special tutelage from former

Australian international

cricketer Jason Krejza.

The 33-year-old right arm

off-break bowler spent time

with the two teams, putting

them through their paces

before some of their matches

in Sydney.

Back at home, the first XI

began their campaign over

the weekend with two wins.

They defeated their own

second XI in the opening

round of the Christchurch

first XI one day competition

last Saturday. They scored

214 in the first innings and

then bowled out the second

XI for just 57 in a one-sided

affair.

On Sunday, they played

St Bede’s in the regional

semi-final of the National

Secondary School Boys’

First XI Cup (formerly the

Gillette Cup).

They bowled St Bede’s

out for 104 and then

reached the target with

relative ease to win by six

wickets. Ben Hartland, son

of former Canterbury and

New Zealand international

cricketer Blair Hartland, top

scored with a 50 to help his

team reach victory.

CBHS will now play St

Andrew’s in the regional

final in November.

The winner will take

part in the final week-long

tournament in Lincoln in

December.

Get the latest summer look

Annabelle

Dick checks

out spring

and summer

trends

THEY WORKED at school, but

will they work in the office?

Culottes have made a heroic

comeback over the past year and

they’re not going away anytime

soon. From Kendall Jenner to

Victoria Beckham, everybody

seems to be rocking the schoolyard

trend.

While switching your skinny

jeans to culottes may seem like a

bit of a stretch, these wide-legged

cropped pants are pretty easy to

pull off when worn right.

Once you own a pair, you’ll

find they’re practically interchangeable

with your favourite

black denims.

If your culottes are plain, steer

towards something more playful

up top to really balance out your

look. And if your culottes are the

star of the show, keep your top

half neutral.

Pair plain culottes with a crisp

blouse and a pair of mules for a

work-ready look.

If you’re looking to integrate

cropped pants into your everyday

wardrobe, culottes will go

perfectly with a playful top like

seen on the beautiful Olivia

Culpo.

But it’s not sweater weather any

longer so it’s time to pull out the

old faithfuls lurking in the back

of your wardrobe for another

season, or head to the shops for a

wardrobe rejuvenation.

Here are some other looks you

should get into, just in time for

the warmer weather.

Blue and white stripes: Picture

it. It’s 30deg C and you’re lounging

sea-side in the French Riviera.

Your blue and white striped

maxi dress flows freely in the

breeze as you look ready to board

your own private yacht. Blue and

white stripes is one way to look

relaxed and effortlessly chic at

the same time. This season is all

about the stripes.

Pleated skirt: A spin on an old

classic. Add a hint of sophistication

by trading in your pencil

skirts for a nice pleated number.

Pair with a set of sneakers to

dress it down and you’ll look oh

PLEATS PLEASE: Pair your flats

with a calf-length pleated skirt

for a fresh summer look.

Summer will also see the return

of mirror sunglasses, statement

10 diet tips backed by science

EACH AND every day there are

headlines screaming the benefits

of various diet and exercise

regimes.

Go Paleo, cut the carbs, fast

occasionally or do a juice cleanse

are just a few of the more recent

diet trends to do the rounds.

But when it comes to what the

evidence shows are sustainable

ways to lose weight and keep

it off, the results can be a little

sparse when it comes to proving

the benefits of these regimes long

term.

Here are some of the strategies

that science shows do work when

it comes to long term weight loss

success.

1 Eat less at night for weight

loss

While it is often debated by

health professionals, there is

growing evidence to show that

eating less at night, or at least having

relatively long periods overnight

without food is beneficial

when it comes to weight loss.

A recent study published in the

British Journal of Nutrition found

that healthy men who restricted

their calorie intake between the

hours of 7pm and 6am consumed

more than 200 fewer calories per

day. The moral of the story, eat for

fewer hours each day to support

calorie control and weight loss.

2. Eat like the Italians

Of all the dietary regimes

sprouted, few, if any have the

scientific evidence base that

supports disease prevention and

longevity the way the Mediterranean

diet does.

Packed full of fresh fruit,

vegetables and plenty of good

fats thanks to lashings of olive

oil, nuts and avocado, not only is

your heart likely to be healthier

eating this way, but your risk of

developing a number of other

diseases.

3 Watch your liquid calories

Few foods are directly linked to

weight gain the way soft drinks,

juices and other sources of nonnutritive

liquid calories are.

High sugar liquids deposit fat in

the liver more readily than other

foods and are easily overconsumed.

Any time you see sugar

in a liquid form, you are best to

avoid it.

4 Concentrate on eating

Studies have repeatedly shown

the benefits of mindful eating,

including fewer total calories

consumed, increased satiety and

less calories consumed at the next

meal.

This means it is time to ditch

lunch in front of the computer for

a few minutes and instead focus

on what you are eating.

5 Focus on fibre

Another old school dietary approach

that many of us continue

to ignore is getting enough fibre.

Many of us are failing to reach

the recommended intake thanks

to an inadequate consumption of

fresh fruit and vegetables. Instead,

we are over indulging in more

processed carbs, such as white

bread, white rice and pasta.

Adults should aim for 30g of

dietary fibre each day through

2-3 cups salad and vegetables,

a couple of pieces of fruit and

wholegrains like corn, brown rice,

quinoa and legumes.

6 Ditch the diet drinks

While diet soft drinks may appear

to be a healthier option, and

while they may contain no added

sugar, they remain an exceptionally

sweet food and one that is

linked to increased hunger, sweet

cravings and hormonal issues.

For this reason, consuming

them occasionally rather than

thinking they are a good swap for

regular soft drink is the key.

7 Sleep more

The more you sleep, the fewer

hours there are to eat. When it

comes to chronic sleep deprivation,

getting less than five hours

a night of shut eye is linked to

increased body weight likely due

to hormonal imbalances which

can be impacted by lack of sleep.

8 Be consistent

No diet needs to be perfect to

get good results. Data from the

US Weight Control Registry –

which tracks the progress of more

than 5000 Americans who have

lost more than 15kg and kept

it off – has shown that consistency

is the key when it comes to

weight control.

9 Keep moving

Exercise is great but even more

important is the need to keep active.

The biggest shift in modern

life is that we find ourselves sitting

down for many hours each

day. In turn this means we need

to clock up some serious steps in

an attempt to counter act these

long periods of inactivity.

10 Get enough protein

Diets higher in protein have

been shown to help regulate appetite,

blood glucose levels and

heart disease risk factors.

As a general rule of thumb,

teaming each meal with a combo

of slowly digested carbs such as

wholegrains or fruit with a protein

rich food is an easy dietary

mantra. Try tuna on crackers,

Greek yoghurt and fruit.

No more trying to find

a plumber on a Saturday.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Pasifika Trades Training leads

to new career for Charity

Receiving a Pasifika Trades Training

scholarship has been a game-changer for

Charity Ierome. After completing a 12-

week Essential Civil Skills course at Ara

Institute of Canterbury for free, she now

has a clear career path and a new outlook.

“The biggest thing it’s done for me is

build up my confidence. Before I felt like

nobody and now I know that I can achieve

and what I want to do in the future,” she

says.

Charity used to work in the butchery at

Pak n Save, but knew it wasn’t what she

wanted to do long-term. Her Dad found

out about the Pasifika Trades Training

scholarship through Reverend Fitifiti

Lautua, a mentor for the programme.

With so many opportunities in

Canterbury, Charity says that trades

training was a good career move and it

made financial sense.

“It was a chance for me to do something

for myself and make a better living for my

family. My Nana was my inspiration. I

wanted to make sure she was well looked

after back in Samoa,” she says.

Studying for 12 weeks full-time was a

big commitment for Charity, who also

continued to work full-time. However, the

backing of her tutor and classmates helped

her to succeed.

“My tutor had experienced the kind of

difference that a qualification can make in

your life and he was a real role model. My

class became my second family,” she says.

The course was exactly what Charity

needed to get into the industry. It included

the core practical skills and certifications

that employers look for, and provided

support to enter the workforce.

“The most valuable thing I learned was

how to get work-ready. I was taught how

to approach an interview and what to put

in my CV. We also had potential employers

come to talk to us,” she says.

Just two weeks after completing her

qualification, Charity was offered a job at

City Care. She is now a Traffic Management

Site Supervisor, wants to work towards

a degree and has her sights set on a

management role.

“It’s like I’m on a totally different planet

now. Studying has changed who I am and

it has changed my family’s future,” she says.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Cramping pain in my

leg when I try to walk

Intermittent Claudication

“This is different from “night-cramps” Ietje van Stolk, (physiotherapist

at Physical Sense and the centre for Senior Well-being) explains.

This kind of cramping (sometimes called

“window -shopping legs”) is triggered by

normal exertion of the leg muscles and

is typically caused by obstruction of the

arteries. Sufferers have to find themselves a

regular excuse to stop for a while to allow

the blood flow to reach the cramped up

muscles.

The official name for this condition is

Intermittent Claudication. Claudication is

pain and/or cramping in the lower leg due

to inadequate blood flow to the muscles.

The pain usually causes the person to

limp. The word “claudication” comes from

the Latin “claudicare” meaning to limp.

Claudication typically is felt while walking,

and subsides with rest. It is commonly

referred to as “intermittent” claudication

because it comes and goes with exertion

and rest. In severe claudication, the pain is

also felt at rest.

It is a painful condition that really

“cramps people’s lifestyle”. The pain free

walking distance tends to get shorter as the

condition progresses. If you suffer from

this condition it is crucial to understand

that the body actually finds a way to

increase the blood flow to the legs IF

THE DEMAND is there. It is like every

thing in the body……..”use it or lose it”.

Unfortunately many people with this

condition end up in a vicious cycle; the

pain stops the walking, and the lack of

walking increases the problem.

Exercise is recommended to greatly

reduce symptoms and to increase

pain free walking distance. Eight years

ago on request of the vascular nurse

in Christchurch hospital, Physical

Sense started a two weekly circuit for

Intermittent Claudication patients. The

pilot program started with 50 clients.

• 82% of all clients, experienced

improvement in their walking distance

• Quite a number of clients doubled their

walking distance, for some it even became

limitless.

• After a year 88% of clients were still active

• There was an exceptionally low dropout

rate of only 8%

• The 18% who did not notice a difference

in relation to their walking distance still

enjoyed all the other benefits of exercise

(to heart, lungs, sugar levels, bone health,

balance and mood etc.)

People always start in a group, so they

get the benefit of a guided introduction to

more exercise and the use of the gym. In

the groups we are looking at 50-80+ year

olds that are giving their legs a workout

by using steppers, treadmills, stationary

bikes and other exercise stations. That way

they also benefit from working out with

people who suffer the same problems. “It

is amazing the support and wisdom people

receive from each other” Ietje says. In this

“circuit setup” every client can work in

their own tempo, and people simply sit

down and have a rest when the “cramping

in the leg” becomes too much. Some

people stay in the group and some choose

to use the gym by themselves to keep on

top of their claudication.

At Physical Sense they have been going

strong with the Intermittent Claudication

class ever since the first class eight years

ago.

You can try the classes for FREE. If you

want to continue and you have WINZ

support, WINZ usually pays for the classes

(as WINZ is VERY supportive of these

classes).

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Are you one of

the 70% with

excess Candida

Do you suffer from any of

the following symptoms?

Heart burn, indigestion, feeling tired

often, low energy, gas, constipation or

diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, frequent

urination, thrush, oral thrush (white

coated tongue), sore throat, fungal skin

infections and rashes, jock itch, chronic

disease among others are just some of the

common symptoms.

A causative factor for all these symptoms

and more can be a yeast organism

called Candida albicans. It is often

underestimated what a profound effect it

can have on our health and wellbeing.

It is normal and beneficial to have

some Candida in the gut where it is kept

under control by the good gut bacteria or

probiotics that feed on this yeast. However,

using antibiotics without probiotic

supplementation, sickness, poor diet,

insufficient stomach acid and medications

are some of the factors that can upset this

delicate balance and allow the Candida to

thrive.

The Candida yeast often enters the blood

stream as a fungus. Symptoms will vary

depending on its location in the body. If it

enters the brain, it can cause depression,

anxiety and foggy thinking. Some

researchers believe the Candida fungus

can release a pleomorphic microorganism

or virus that’s form changes depending

on its environment. This is believed to

be a factor in cancer and other chronic

health conditions. However, it is the

body’s weakened immune system and

toxic environment that is the real cause of

disease.

The natural health advisers at

Marshall’s Health and Natural Therapy

can provide you with a detailed

nutritional protocol to cleanse the excess

candida and its fungus from the body,

and improve your overall health and

wellbeing. Visit them at 110 Seaview Rd,

New Brighton. Phone 388 5757. We are

always happy to help!

Forgetting Things?

Surprising Advice!

Brain and memory changes happen to

everyone around the age of 50 or so.

Four reasons why the brain

‘ages’

1. Our age-related hormones

decline

2. Living a sedentary lifestyle

3. Lacking mental & physical

activity

4. Poor nutrition & obesity

Factors 2, 3 and 4 are under

YOUR control!

Exercise is SO important for

cell regeneration.

In a recent U.S. study, those

who exercised for 15 minutes

three times a week reduced

their risk for dementia by onethird.

“Moderate exercise is the

closest thing we have to a magic

wellness bullet for everyone,”

said William Thies, of the

Alzheimer’s Association for

medical and scientific affairs.

“Moderate physical activity

has all kinds of benefits and

almost no downside.”

The Aircycle exerciser was

designed to boost circulation

and keep nutrients and

oxygen flowing to the cells.

Well nourished cells aid

regeneration in all parts of the

ARTHRITIS

Boost circulation and gently

exercise while you sit – it’s so easy!

Are you Magnesium

deficient?

Minerals are the building

blocks of good health. Some

minerals are only needed in

trace amounts where others like

magnesium are needed in much

larger amounts and on a regular

basis to prevent deficiency and

maintain optimum health.

A large number of us do not

obtain sufficient magnesium

from our diet and may notice

some of the common signs

of deficiency. Some of the

more common symptoms that

may be caused by insufficient

magnesium are: leg and muscle

cramps, twitches, muscle pain,

muscle fatigue and weakness,

tremors of hands, blurred

vision, restlessness, poor sleep,

raised and/or unstable blood

pressure, poor circulation,

irregular heartbeat, shortness

of breath, swallowing problems,

dizziness, headaches, anxiety,

agitation, irritability, seizures,

poor concentration and many

more.

Although many young people

now show signs of magnesium

deficiency symptoms

generally worsen as we age

due to our digestive system

being less efficient. Taking a

magnesium supplement of

sufficient strength may be a

sensible option to top up our

vital magnesium levels. Not

all magnesium supplements

however are well absorbed by

everyone. Luckily a new marine

sourced magnesium has been

found that offers good levels of

absorbable magnesium as well

as many trace nutrients that are

low in the diet but essential for

good health.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

A name synonymous with the

motor vehicle industry

As a youngster, Trevor Crowe always tinkered with cars. After completing his

mechanics engineering apprenticeship, he established Lichfield Motors and later

Trevor Crowe Motors, obtaining the Subaru franchise in 1988. Crowe Subaru was

the top selling Subaru dealership in New Zealand for many years.

In 2000, Trevor sold his Subaru franchise to

concentrate on his passion of motor vehicle maintenance

and repairs, and motor racing in his spare time.

“Trevor enjoys making and fixing things,” advises

Josh Mitchell, Car Sales Manager at CroweSport. “He

sold the franchise so he could specialise in repairs but

so many customers kept asking to buy a car that he

began importing second-hand cars, opening a car yard

beside his workshop.”

Josh joined Trevor as an apprentice mechanic when

he left school. He learnt the ins and outs of Subarus

while also helping out in the car yard.

“Customers liked talking to a mechanic who could

answer their questions about Subarus and how they

worked,” explains Josh who admits to being as fanatical

about motor vehicles and engines as Trevor is.

After the 2011 February earthquake, the business

took over a vacated business next door and Josh took

responsibility for the buying and selling of cars.

Each day, Josh sifts through the details of around 200

cars at Japanese auctions, selecting vehicles reflecting

quality. He then requests their Japanese agent to

thoroughly inspect each car and recommend the best

which CroweSport imports. With a new law governing

the emission levels of imported vehicles, only Subarus

that are 2004 or newer are imported.

Around forty vehicles a month come into the

CroweSport workshop where they are serviced and any

repairs carried out before being placed in the yard for

sale.

“Our customers have peace of mind when purchasing

our cars as they know they have been thoroughly

checked and are in good condition,” explains Josh.

Josh says that the standard of cars available from Japan

is wide so they only deal with one company. This allows

them to have an excellent relationship, building trust in

their import agent who checks the cars at auction for

CroweSport.

Trevor and Josh both currently races Subaru

Imprezas, and Trevor is building a new ‘Subaru Special’

race car, which might explain why CroweSport really

are Subaru specialists, though they repair and service

all makes and models.

CroweSport is a privately owned and operated

automotive sales and service centre. They sell secondhand

Subaru and are looking to the future with Nissan

Leaf electric vehicles. CroweSport can be found at 518

Moorhouse Avenue (between Fitzgerald Avenue and

Ferry Road).

To contact CroweSport telephone 03 379 7615 or

email: boss@crowesport.co.nz. Their website is: www.

crowesport.co.nz; and like them on Facebook where

they regularly update motorsport news and events.
