Landscaping U-turn by BP<br />

on neighbouring property<br />

• By Gabrielle Stuart<br />

and Andrew King<br />

EDGEWARE BP has agreed to<br />

plant trees around it’s newlyredeveloped<br />

site – but no-one has<br />

told the neighbour who raised<br />

the concern.<br />

Cornwall St resident Kazu<br />

Kano and other neighbours<br />

spent more than six months<br />

trying to fight the expansion<br />

of the BP, but the plan was<br />

approved at a resource consent<br />

hearing heard by commissioner<br />

David Mountfort.<br />

Where there was once a row of<br />

established trees, Mr Kano’s view<br />

now is of a 20m long, almost 5m<br />

high white wall just behind the<br />

boundary fence, which reflects<br />

glare into his home.<br />

BP initially refused the<br />

residents’ requests to plant extra<br />

trees to hide the wall.<br />

But it appears to have done<br />

a U-turn after Mayor Lianne<br />

Dalziel called personally about<br />

the landscaping.<br />

Ms Dalziel stepped in after<br />

articles highlighting the problem<br />

were published in the Nor’West<br />

<strong>News</strong> and The Star.<br />

She said while she made a call<br />

to the company, the real work<br />

was done by city council staff.<br />

“I believe it is being implemented<br />

now and I am pleased<br />

for the neighbour who was<br />

concerned,” she said.<br />

At the July hearing,<br />

residents tried to stop BP and its<br />

plans to add four more pumps, 12<br />

car parks plus a bigger forecourt.<br />

Mayor Lianne Dalziel waded<br />

into the battle asking BP to work<br />

with city council staff to find a<br />

solution.<br />

Planting of trees to hide the<br />

fence, the city council said,<br />

started yesterday.<br />

Mr Kano said he is still waiting<br />

to be notified of what is going on.<br />

“I haven’t heard anything,” he<br />

said.<br />

Mayor Dalziel said while this is<br />

a good outcome it does highlight<br />

how little influence neighbours<br />

and the city council has on the<br />

resource consent process.<br />

good way<br />

to help elderly<br />

Bryndwr’s Iola Davies is one of many Christchurch<br />

residents who have signed up to Sam Johnson’s<br />

newest venture WeVisit. She is pictured with<br />

WeVisit intern and Victoria University student<br />

Isaiah Ratahi. WeVisit aims to connect the city’s<br />

elderly with student visitors. Student Volunteer<br />

Army founder Sam Johnson said the initiative was<br />

a companion service for the elderly that matched<br />

them with a trusted and trained young person,<br />

who would visit each week, share time, do odd<br />

jobs and keep families in the loop. “Essentially,<br />

we are recruiting a network of New Zealand’s<br />

most helpful grandchildren to support busy<br />

families, expats and those who live apart,” Mr<br />

Johnson said.<br />

FROM<br />

THE<br />

EDITOR’S<br />

DESK <strong>News</strong>...................................... 3-9<br />

IT’S TAKEN a while but finally we<br />

have some good news today for the<br />

affected residents that opposed the<br />

Edgeware BP expansion.<br />

BP will plant shrubs to try and<br />

minimise the affect the new shop<br />

has along Kazu Kano’s fence. Time<br />

will tell how effective that is, but<br />

BP should also be painting the<br />

back of their shop to reduce the<br />

glare on the Kanos’ back porch.<br />

It will be at travesty if BP doesn’t.<br />

As we reported last week, Mayor<br />

Lianne Dalziel jumped in to push<br />

BP into doing something and this<br />

appears to have worked. Thanks<br />

Lianne. But if it wasn’t for Nor’West<br />

<strong>News</strong> and The Star fighting for<br />

the residents, nothing would have<br />

been done. The city council was<br />

complicit in the resource consent<br />

process that allowed this to happen<br />

and local councillor Pauline Cotter<br />

didn’t seem interested in the latest<br />

battle, as we reported recently.<br />

Village expansion opened<br />

RESIDENTS IN The Russley<br />

Village have a brand new $10<br />

million community centre<br />

which was opened by John Key<br />

on Friday.<br />

The ‘Homestead’ was opened<br />

on the site of the old Russley<br />

Hotel which first opened in<br />

1964.<br />

As well as Mr Key more than<br />

200 guests were in attendance,<br />

including local MP and Minister<br />

of Transport Gerry Brownlee<br />

– who once worked at the old<br />

hotel – master of ceremonies<br />

Peter Townsend, former hotel<br />

manager Peter Morrison and village<br />

ambassador Judy Bailey.<br />

Village director Graham<br />

Wilkinson said the brief for the<br />

build recognised the importance<br />

of the history of the site.<br />

“The Russley Hotel was of<br />

huge significance to Christchurch,”<br />

he said.<br />

“We wanted to preserve this<br />

by creating a sophisticated country<br />

club experience that captures<br />

some of the old hotel’s warmth<br />

and ambience.”<br />

Like the old hotel, the new<br />

Homestead has areas purposebuilt<br />

for entertainment and<br />

socialising including a boutique<br />

cinema with tiered seats and a<br />

café and brasserie.<br />

Upstairs, there is an intimate<br />

lounge. There is also a library,<br />

study and computer area, an arts<br />

and crafts space as well as a hair<br />

salon and wellness rooms for<br />

health professionals.<br />

There are a number of contemporary<br />

design features<br />

throughout, from the marble reception<br />

and weathered bronzed<br />

finishes to more traditional<br />

design elements such as exposed<br />

rafters and vaulted ceilings<br />

with skylights to diffuse light<br />

throughout.<br />

“The Russley Hotel was well<br />

known for its friendly fireplaces.<br />

We’ve emulated this and have<br />

installed within the Homestead<br />

three stunning fireplaces featuring<br />

herringbone brick liners and<br />

raked limestone hearths,” Mr<br />

Wilkinson said.<br />

“The Russley was also the<br />

first hotel in the south island<br />

to have a swimming pool and<br />

became quite famous for its<br />

parties. Again, in keeping with<br />

the history of the site, we have<br />

started the construction of an<br />

indoor heated pool and spa<br />

complex.”<br />

The new Homestead complex,<br />

was designed by Christchurchbased<br />

Dalman Architects and<br />

Auckland-based Lauren Hare<br />

Interiors.<br />

In Brief<br />

STREET ONE-WAY<br />

Westminster St, between<br />

Cranford St and Roosevelt Ave,<br />

will be one-way heading west for<br />

the next four days while repairs<br />

are being carried out on the<br />

wastewater system. On-street<br />

parking will be limited. Work will<br />

take place between 7am and 6pm.<br />

WOMAN HURT IN CRASH<br />

A woman in her 20s was taken<br />

to Christchurch Hospital<br />

on Thursday with moderate<br />

injuries after a two vehicle crash<br />

on Thursday. St John sent an<br />

ambulance to the scene at the<br />

intersection of Hills and Innes<br />

Rds around 6.50am.<br />

FUNDING SOUGHT<br />

Five students in north-west have<br />

applied for funding from the<br />

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood<br />

Mike Vincent<br />

Million dollar mission to save a<br />

Mike Vincent is Kaikoura’s paua saviour. He<br />

reckons he and about 450 volunteers have<br />

saved paua worth more than $1 million since the<br />

November 14 earthquake. Fraser Walker-Pearce<br />

talks to the 44-year-old about questioning his<br />

science teacher, missing his wife and kids, and<br />

growing up in Aranui<br />

Where are you while we’re<br />

chatting?<br />

We’re in Boat Harbour in the<br />

south of Kaikoura still, we’re<br />

waiting for a road to open so<br />

we can get access to some bays<br />

further to the north, the different<br />

inlets and bays up there. All<br />

the way from Oaro through to<br />

Peketa is the area we’ve been allowed<br />

to relocate paua.<br />

Talk to me about the process<br />

of relocating paua. What does<br />

that entail?<br />

Before I do I’ll explain how to<br />

normally gather paua. You jump<br />

in at low tide and dive for it;<br />

that’s the way to get it legally. But<br />

now because of the earthquake<br />

you can walk out in sand shoes<br />

without getting wet and reach it.<br />

In my whole 30 years of diving<br />

I’ve never been able to go into<br />

a tidal zone and pick up my six<br />

paua without getting wet. There’s<br />

no science in that, it’s just what’s<br />

happened.<br />

So now you’re wading out,<br />

gathering them and dropping<br />

them deeper?<br />

What we do is we go out at<br />

low tide, when there’s a two hour<br />

window either side of that and<br />

we fill buckets with water and the<br />

harvesters go out and grab them,<br />

and the relocaters who are the<br />

experienced divers, go and place<br />

them on rocks, back into the<br />

water basically. The simple way<br />

of saying it is that we’re moving<br />

them from where there was no<br />

water, to where there is water.<br />

How much depth do you<br />

think has been lost from the<br />

earthquake?<br />

It’s hard to put a number on<br />

it, because all I can say is there’s<br />

hundreds of dead paua on the<br />

beaches now. It’s also important<br />

to ask if in the old tidal zone<br />

pre-earthquake was there any<br />

sea-life on the beach? The answer<br />

is no. In the new tidal zone after<br />

the quake would there be any life<br />

POWER COUPLE: Mike Vincent and wife Debra. Mr Vincent<br />

says she is his rock back in Christchurch.<br />

there? And the answer is still no,<br />

because sea creatures can’t live<br />

out of water (laughs).<br />

And so you’ve brought it on<br />

yourself to get them back in the<br />

water?<br />

A diving mate of mine Dylan<br />

Dhue, his wife Hannah and I<br />

phoned each other the day after<br />

the earthquake. When we saw a<br />

photo of a rock full of paua well<br />

above the water line on Facebook,<br />

that’s what made me call<br />

him and I said to him we have to<br />

do something. And that’s when<br />

I posted my first Facebook plea<br />

for help.<br />

And it all went from there?<br />

Pretty much. So now it’s all<br />

volunteers up here who all feel<br />

the same as us – they’ve all<br />

visited or dived here. It’s touched<br />

all of us. Kaikoura has a special<br />

place in all South Islanders’<br />

minds and hearts. Also a big<br />

thank you to the local runanga in<br />

Kaikoura who offered their help<br />

and support for us.<br />

Obviously you can’t save<br />

every single paua out there –<br />

but how many do you think<br />

you’ve relocated back to the<br />

water?<br />

You’re right we can’t save all<br />

of them. But I’d say we’ve put<br />

between 20,000 and 75,000kg of<br />

paua back into the water. But to<br />

give you an idea, we would fill a<br />

20-30L bucket in about a minute,<br />

so we fill thousands of buckets.<br />

To put a money figure on what<br />

we’re doing, it’s about $90 for a<br />

ton of paua, so we would be talking<br />

over a million bucks for this<br />

operation normally. We’ve probably<br />

had about 450 volunteers<br />

over the whole time helping out<br />

too. I want to say a big thank you<br />

to all our wives out there as well<br />

(laughs). We’ve all got families<br />

mate, they’ve been our rocks, so<br />

letting us go away and do this is<br />

awesome.<br />

We’re coming up to<br />

Christmas now, how much<br />

longer do you think you can do<br />

this for?<br />

We’re waiting for a road to<br />

open up towards Peketa so we<br />

can get there. If it doesn’t open<br />

by Sunday though we’ll have to<br />

call it.<br />

Kaikoura natural treasure<br />

When will you be back in<br />

Christchurch?<br />

I would say within the next<br />

week and a half. It’s been adventurous,<br />

but we just want to get<br />

home to support our families.<br />

It will be really awesome for me<br />

to see my wife Debra and my<br />

two young boys Kaydence and<br />

Ezekiel again.<br />

What suburb in Christchurch<br />

are you going back to?<br />

Addington. We’ve been there<br />

for eight years now. It’s our first<br />

house. I haven’t been working<br />

so my wife’s a bit stretched. I’m<br />

in the building industry but I’ve<br />

taken almost a year off to help<br />

with the house.<br />

Do you ask a few of your<br />

builder friends to help with the<br />

house?<br />

Oh hell yes. I’ve got heaps of<br />

friends that have helped out with<br />

the house, people like plasterers,<br />

painters, landscapers, it’s all good<br />

karma that comes around for<br />

them too.<br />

You must have a lot of good<br />

karma with the work you’re doing<br />

at the moment?<br />

Yes, I think I must have a bit<br />

of credit in the bank (laughs).<br />

It’s the love and support of the<br />

New Zealand people, that’s what<br />

allows me to keep going. We’re a<br />

special breed us Kiwis I truly believe<br />

that. I think when you have<br />

a natural disaster it brings people<br />

back together and you get a lot<br />

of good things happening. And<br />

in 20 years time our kids will be<br />

able to come out to Kaikoura and<br />

get paua.<br />

So it’s also about the future<br />

generation for you?<br />

It’s all about my kids and their<br />

kids, to get paua for me, their<br />

father, when I’m too old to get it<br />

myself (laughs). It’s me teaching<br />

them what’s important, conservation<br />

and all that.<br />

What high school did you go<br />

to in Christchurch?<br />

I went to Aranui High School.<br />

I was brought up and lived in<br />

New Brighton and loved surfing<br />

on North Beach, I used to love<br />

to surf. I’m more into my diving<br />

and hunting now. I’d rather run<br />

around the hills and do stuff<br />

like that now, chasing pigs and<br />

deer.<br />

Who did you hang out with at<br />

school?<br />

It was a big community back<br />

then. It’s a lot different now because<br />

of the advances with technology<br />

nowadays. We’d phone<br />

people and actually bike to each<br />

others’ houses and that kind of<br />

thing. It was a small community<br />

and everybody knew everybody.<br />

Are there any schoolmates<br />

you still catch up with?<br />

I still see a lot of the mates, and<br />

because of this work I’m doing<br />

up here a lot have come back<br />

out of the woodwork. That core<br />

group of good friends are still<br />

around. Just a big web of friends<br />

I guess.<br />

Did you have any favourite<br />

subjects at school?<br />

I loved science – I was the<br />

guy that would stand up in class<br />

and got in trouble for it, and<br />

ask about evolution and ask the<br />

teacher why apes aren’t turning<br />

into humans now, that kind of<br />

thing. I loved it because I liked<br />

the challenge of working through<br />

something and asking what’s going<br />

on here.<br />

Were you pretty smart for a<br />

student?<br />

I was an average student, sort<br />

of in-between average and above<br />

PAUA<br />

SAVIOUR:<br />

coast (left).<br />

The paua<br />

need saving<br />

because the<br />

seabed rose<br />

significantly<br />

during the<br />

earthquake.<br />

average in terms of my brains. I<br />

loved my sport though. I played<br />

representative rugby for Canterbury,<br />

then I went and played<br />

league and then got into diving<br />

at 14 and hunting after that. I<br />

still play presidents rugby league<br />

for the Kaiapoi Bulldogs. I still<br />

throw myself around like I’m 21<br />

to be honest (laughs).<br />

Did you do any tertiary education<br />

after Aranui?<br />

I did a course at polytech for<br />

business management. I think I<br />

got through one year and it got<br />

boring for me. It wasn’t challenging<br />

enough for me and I thought<br />

do I really need a piece of paper<br />

for this? I’m just a worker that<br />

learns a lot by talking to people<br />

and not judging them.<br />

PAPANUI HIGH SCHOOL<br />

NEWSLETTER<br />

Greetings, Tena Koutou Katoa,<br />

Welcome to our final newsletter for <strong>2016</strong>. We have<br />

had a very successful year, and our students are<br />

doing incredibly well. Increasingly, students are<br />

experiencing and striving for greater success. We<br />

know that, when students are engaged, they will<br />

make progress, and this has been reflected in their<br />

achievement.<br />

As a school it is our responsibility to provide the<br />

best possible learning for every student, and ensure<br />

we meet their diverse needs. The consolidation<br />

of recent initiatives also ensures sustained and<br />

continuous improvement can happen, and supports<br />

the embedding of good school wide practice.<br />

What strongly complements curriculum success,<br />

is of course the opportunities provided by the<br />

school’s co-curricular programme. Our students<br />

have performed exceptionally well in a full range of<br />

activities, some of which are shown below.<br />

At this time of the year, we need to say farewell to a<br />

number of permanent staff. Mr Thomson is leaving<br />

us to take up the Head of Mathematics position at<br />

Riccarton High School, and Mrs Alison Goodfellow<br />

who has taught in our ESOL department for the last<br />

15 years, is retiring. We thank them for their hard<br />

work and for the many years of service they have<br />

provided to the school and to education in general.<br />

Ms Alana Davis, and Mr Fred Poskitt, were both<br />

awarded 40 years long service awards at our<br />

recent senior prize giving in acknowledgement and<br />

celebration of their dedication, valued service, and<br />

outstanding contribution to our school.<br />

I would like to thank and acknowledge;<br />

• the, Board of Trustees, Parent Teacher<br />

Association, parents, whanau, and the wider<br />

community, for their support and for sharing in the<br />

responsibility of educating our young people,<br />

• the entire staff, who make Papanui High School an<br />

exciting and rewarding place,<br />

and,<br />

• the students, who give us all enormous pleasure<br />

in seeing them achieve the things they do. Our<br />

students grow up to be wonderfully mature young<br />

adults with a strong sense of social responsibility.<br />

For those students who are leaving. Thank you for<br />

being a part of Papanui High School. I hope you<br />

feel well prepared for the next step in your lives,<br />

and that you are moving on to new and exciting<br />

challenges. I wish you all the very best for your<br />

future.<br />

Have a safe and happy holiday period. I look<br />

forward to 2017 in the<br />

knowledge that as a school and a community<br />

we will continue to work together to provide our<br />

students an education that is supportive, caring,<br />

and developed in a ‘forward thinking’ way.<br />

Edgeware BP expansion,<br />

have been left with<br />

G B Tulloch: Re: the glaring<br />

white wall at BP Edgeware, perhaps<br />

it could be repainted with<br />

a mural showing the foul clouds<br />

of toxic smoke from the wrecked<br />

Deep Sea Horizon oil rig, the<br />

oil drenched coast of the Gulf of<br />

Mexico, the dead workers, the<br />

suffocated seabirds, the poisoned<br />

fish, and the hordes of lawyers,<br />

spin doctors and lobbyists running<br />

round trying to hide BP’s<br />

responsibility.<br />

In the meantime, boycott BP.<br />

David Dixon: Good to have<br />

a chance to comment on the<br />

BP/Edgeware issue. We have<br />

followed your regular features<br />

and frankly the behaviour of the<br />

corporate is appalling.<br />

The whole concept of them enlarging<br />

in such a congested area<br />

with kindergarten, housing , the<br />

supermarket, a busy Postshop,<br />

all the other shops and a very<br />

busy intersection is inane and<br />

should never have been allowed<br />

to go ahead.<br />

I felt so much for the neighbours<br />

having to fight the corporate<br />

bully through a loaded<br />

resource hearing. Talk about<br />

David and Goliath. The decision<br />

Mr Mountford reached was<br />

deplorable and for BP to now<br />

Stand-out player<br />

gets team home<br />

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’<br />

High School’s Quinn<br />

Clinton put in a stand-out<br />

performance to help the<br />

Junior Tall Blacks qualify for<br />

next year’s under-19 World<br />

Championship in Egypt.<br />

They upset the odds by defeating<br />

Australia 57-51 in the<br />

Oceania qualifying tournament<br />

in Fiji on Saturday.<br />

Clinton led all scorers in the<br />

final with 14 points, including<br />

two late three-pointers to see<br />

his team home.<br />

The point guard was named<br />

as New Zealand captain prior<br />

to the tournament and lived<br />

up to the billing. Trailing by<br />

two points with less than two<br />

minutes remaining, Clinton<br />

hit from long range to put his<br />

team up 50-49.<br />

With 40 seconds remaining,<br />

Clinton hit another three<br />

while getting fouled, to send<br />

him to the line for the chance<br />

of a four-point play. He failed<br />

to convert the free-throw, but<br />

team-mate Taane Samuel’s<br />

put-back put the nail in the<br />

coffin for Australia.<br />

Clinton was impressive<br />

MATT DOOCEY<br />

MP FOR WAIMAKARIRI<br />

CHAT WITH MATT<br />

Like many families, I was rocked<br />

awake by the November earthquake.<br />

The event was a sober reminder for<br />

Canterbury of what our community<br />

has gone through.<br />

I was out and about after the<br />

earthquake to check up on residents<br />

and to be briefed on how our area<br />

had fared. I heard some great stories<br />

about night-shift workers who came<br />

out to check on evacuees parked in<br />

the parking lots of our supermarkets<br />

and offered support and food.<br />

The work undertaken by our<br />

councils and private building<br />

owners in upgrading our buildings<br />

to increase our ability to cope<br />

with earthquake events resulted<br />

in relatively little damage to our<br />

buildings or infrastructure. This<br />

allowed us to be able to support<br />

Hurunui and Kaikōura, and I spoke<br />

in Parliament’s General Debate<br />

Funded by Parliamentary Service and authorised by<br />

Matt Doocey MP, <strong>13</strong>0A Percival St, Rangiora.<br />

about how we are supporting our<br />

neighbours in North Canterbury. The<br />

earthquakes are going to require<br />

a number of legislative measures<br />

to facilitate recovery and I sat in<br />

Parliament under Urgency hearing<br />

the submissions on the Hurunui and<br />

Kaikōura Earthquakes Emergency<br />

Relief Bill.<br />

It’s another reminder to look out for<br />

each other and to check with family<br />

and friends to see they are getting<br />

the support they need. I’m getting<br />

great feedback on my new Belfast<br />

office, with constituents reporting<br />

they appreciate the shorter travel<br />

time to meet with me, so if you need<br />

help or know someone who needs<br />

help, please get in touch.<br />

From my family to yours, I wish you a<br />

Merry Christmas and a peaceful new<br />

year.<br />

Rotary cheque<br />

THE ROTARY Club<br />

of Papanui recently<br />

presented a cheque for<br />

$6440 to the Canterbury<br />

Charity Hospital Trust.<br />

It was a share of the<br />

profits from club’s<br />

successful trailer raffle,<br />

which was organised in<br />

October in partnership<br />

with Papanui Mega Mitre<br />

10.<br />

Club president John<br />

Allen presented the<br />

cheque to Carl Shaw, chief<br />

executive and hospital<br />

manager, who said the<br />

contribution would<br />

help fund more dental<br />

equipment.<br />

Mr Allen acknowledged<br />

the work CCHT delivers<br />

to people who require<br />

surgery, dentistry or<br />

counselling but do not<br />

meet the threshold for<br />

treatment in the public<br />

health system and do not<br />

have the means to fund it<br />

for themselves.<br />

So far this year, CCHT<br />

has undertaken more than<br />

400 procedures for those<br />

who would otherwise be<br />

unable to access the care<br />

they need.<br />

The presentation took<br />

place in the recovery ward<br />

where several reclining<br />

chairs, previously donated<br />

by Rotary, are located.<br />

The trust has purchased<br />

a further neighbouring<br />

property which is<br />

being converted into a<br />

Boys’ High take national title<br />

LAWyerS<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

FRASER SHEAT has joined<br />

the likes of previous winner<br />

Black Caps captain Kane<br />

Williamson after taking<br />

out the MVP award at last<br />

week’s Secondary School<br />

Boys’ First XI Cup.<br />

The 18-year-old right<br />

arm pace bowler led all<br />

players with 11 wickets for<br />

Christchurch Boys’ High<br />

School at the week-long<br />

tournament at Lincoln<br />

University, as his side captured<br />

the title with a perfect<br />

record of five wins from as<br />

many games.<br />

Sheat was understandably<br />

overjoyed to win the tournament<br />

MVP award.<br />

History tends to suggest<br />

those that win MVP are<br />

destined for bigger things.<br />

Williamson and fellow<br />

Black Cap Adam Milne are<br />

just two names to win the<br />

award over the last decade.<br />

“I didn’t expect the award<br />

at all. I can’t really see myself<br />

up there with those sort<br />

of guys. It’s pretty special<br />

to get the award and I’m<br />

just stoked for the boys that<br />

we could get the win,” said<br />

Sheat.<br />

The CBHS first XI not<br />

only went unbeaten at<br />

the tournament, but have<br />

remained unbeaten in all<br />

competitions this year.<br />

“The boys have worked so<br />

hard throughout the year.<br />

They just keep working and<br />

working and this was their<br />

end goal. And to do it without<br />

losing one is an amazing<br />

effort from them,” said<br />

CBHS coach Mark Lane.<br />

The most memorable win<br />

during last week’s tournament<br />

came on Wednesday<br />

against Auckland’s St Kentigern<br />

College which finished<br />

runners-up.<br />

Batting first, CBHS scored<br />

243 from 50 overs. St Kentigern<br />

got off to a great start<br />

in reply and were cruising at<br />

184/4 in the 27th over.<br />

Three quick wickets fell<br />

before they stabilised to be<br />

238/7, requiring just six runs<br />

from the final four overs.<br />

However, CBHS put in a<br />

spirited bowling effort to<br />

take the final three St Kentigern<br />

wickets for just three<br />

runs and win the match by<br />

two runs.<br />

CBHS have now won the<br />

cup three times over the<br />

past four years.<br />

MVP: Fraser Sheat<br />

took 11 wickets at the<br />

Secondary School Boys’<br />

First XI Cup last week to<br />

win the MVP award. ​<br />

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | DECEMBER <strong>2016</strong><br />

The year ahead<br />

A message from outgoing EQC chief executive<br />

Ian Simpson<br />

The Kaikoura Earthquake has been an unwelcome<br />

reminder of the sheer power and unpredictability<br />

of geological forces and of New Zealand’s<br />

vulnerability to these.<br />

The earthquake has also highlighted yet again<br />

the resilience of New Zealanders in the face of<br />

natural disaster.<br />

At EQC, it’s also reminded us that every natural<br />

disaster affects communities in different ways. So<br />

while we have learned a number of lessons from<br />

Canterbury 2010-2011, our response to the<br />

Kaikoura Earthquakes will be different.<br />

One of the key things we learned from<br />

Canterbury is that we should have put more<br />

time early on into building relationships with<br />

customers, community groups, local<br />

Courtesy of Tonkin + Taylor<br />

Don’t wait to hear from<br />

EQC – lodge your claim<br />

Most people seen by EQC in the first<br />

weeks since the Kaikoura<br />

Earthquake of 14 November have<br />

wanted help lodging their claims<br />

and advice on how to get emergency<br />

repairs underway to get them back<br />

into their homes.<br />

EQC Customer and Claims General<br />

Manager Trish Keith says that having<br />

organised three teams on rotation into<br />

the most impacted areas of Ward, Waiau<br />

and Kaikoura to help lodge claims,<br />

provide information and answer<br />

EQC-related questions, EQC is being<br />

kept up to date on customer needs.<br />

“One of the lessons out of Canterbury<br />

was that people wanted information<br />

and the opportunity to talk to someone<br />

about their issues as soon as they could<br />

after an event, so we have ensured that<br />

our response to Kaikoura includes<br />

personal contact,” Mrs Keith says.<br />

“The teams have been dealing with<br />

hundreds of customers one-on-one.<br />

Many people have been asking EQC<br />

when someone from EQC will visit<br />

them, so they will know what to do<br />

next. My advice is that they go ahead<br />

and lodge the claim first. Don’t wait for<br />

anyone to visit.<br />

“Go ahead and lodge your claim to<br />

ensure you are in the system, and any<br />

earthquake damage found later can be<br />

added. If you fail to lodge a claim<br />

before 14 February 2017, we won’t be<br />

able to help you so best to lodge the<br />

government, and government agencies<br />

and insurers.<br />

We are heeding that lesson as we plan our<br />

response to Kaikoura. We’ve had staff on the<br />

ground in Kaikoura, Ward and Waiau to help<br />

customers lodge their claims and answer EQC<br />

related questions. The information our people<br />

are picking up from those areas is being fed back<br />

into our planning.<br />

The work we are doing now will mean that in<br />

2017 we will be putting in place the team we<br />

need to deliver a response tailored to the needs<br />

of customers impacted by the Kaikoura<br />

Earthquake. This team will be part of the new<br />

structure we have developed to also carry on the<br />

remaining work in Canterbury in 2017.<br />

While we are working very hard on responding to<br />

Kaikoura, we also know we have to keep focussed<br />

on resolving the final Canterbury claims.<br />

I’m stepping down as EQC’s chief executive at<br />

the end of this year. I want to thank people of<br />

claim,” Mrs Keith says.<br />

The next steps about claim assessment<br />

and settlement are still the subject of<br />

ongoing negotiations with private<br />

insurers. EQC is confident it will have<br />

news on this soon.<br />

EQC has been prioritising the<br />

vulnerable and the most damaged<br />

homes for visits, as needed.<br />

All EQC teams are working out of<br />

Recovery Assistance Centres set up by<br />

Canterbury Civil Defence Emergency<br />

Management in Ward, Waiau and<br />

Kaikoura so Government agencies and<br />

non-government agencies could deliver<br />

consistently across areas of need.<br />

If you have any questions about<br />

your existing claim or want to lodge<br />

a new claim:<br />

• Visit www.eqc.govt.nz/claims<br />

• Email info@eqc.govt.nz<br />

• Phone 0800 DAMAGE (326 243)<br />

The EQC call centre is open 7am to<br />

9pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to<br />

6pm on Saturdays.<br />

To prepare for making a claim,<br />

remember to have on hand:<br />

• Information about what damage<br />

occurred<br />

• Photographs showing the damage<br />

and any urgent work that was done<br />

• Your insurance policy number and<br />

name of your insurance company.<br />

Courtesy of NZ Fire Service<br />

Canterbury for the support we have received,<br />

and at times for your patience. I acknowledge we<br />

didn’t always get everything right but we have<br />

learned from that. I also want to acknowledge the<br />

EQC staff who worked very hard to support the<br />

Canterbury recovery.<br />

Looking ahead, it’s clear 2017 will be another<br />

year of challenges. I’m confident that EQC will<br />

rise to meet those challenges.<br />

2017 changes<br />

From later this month, EQC will be the main point of<br />

contact for all customer enquiries relating to Canterbury<br />

Home Repair Programme (CHRP) repairs.<br />

Until now, customers have dealt with EQC and/or Fletcher EQR<br />

– depending on what stage their repairs have been at. But, from<br />

16 <strong>December</strong>, EQC’s 0800 number (0800 326 243) will be the<br />

main number for all customers – including those whose<br />

properties are in the current sub-floor review, who will be<br />

transferred to the Fletcher EQR staff focussing on that work.<br />

No delays are intended or anticipated, but personnel changes<br />

due to the completion of about 68,400 first-time CHRP repairs<br />

may mean some customers will have a different contact person<br />

at EQC or EQR in 2017.<br />

EQC’s General Manager Customer and Claims Trish Keith says<br />

these customers will be advised of any changes and provided<br />

with new contact details.<br />

“We don’t want customers who currently have a contact<br />

person at EQC or EQR calling us and only then finding out that<br />

someone else is looking after their claim.”<br />

She says any changes will be limited to EQC and EQR<br />

personnel, and repair work will be carried out by contractors<br />

that have already worked for the home repair programme and<br />

are familiar with EQC’s systems and quality expectations.<br />

Most CHRP contractors will finish work for the year on<br />

23 <strong>December</strong> and resume work from 9 January.<br />

EQC’s Contact Centre hours will be:<br />

• Friday 23 <strong>December</strong>: 7am-5pm<br />

• Saturday 24 <strong>December</strong> – Tuesday 27 <strong>December</strong>: CLOSED<br />

• Wednesday 28 <strong>December</strong> – Friday 30 <strong>December</strong>: 8am-5pm<br />

• Saturday 31 <strong>December</strong> – Tuesday 3 January: CLOSED<br />

• Normal hours will resume on Wednesday 4 January<br />

Positive<br />

response to<br />

February <strong>2016</strong><br />

settlement<br />

process<br />

90 percent of claims from the February <strong>2016</strong><br />

earthquakes have been settled.<br />

EQC’s February <strong>2016</strong> Event Response Manager,<br />

Jayne Lapin, says of the <strong>13</strong>,879 claims received for the<br />

14 and 29 February earthquakes and subsequent<br />

aftershocks, EQC has resolved 12,440 (90 percent)<br />

by cash settlement worth a total value of $46,039,854<br />

“Customers have appreciated the approach we have<br />

developed and implemented in response to the<br />

February earthquakes.”<br />

The new approach uses both on-site and phonebased<br />

assessments, and allows customers to influence<br />

the pace of settlement by giving them the opportunity<br />

to provide earthquake damage data and<br />

photographic evidence.<br />

Thanks to a robust period of planning in advance and<br />

with customers providing information up front, claims<br />

have taken an average of three weeks to reach<br />

settlement from assessment.<br />

Customers who have been through the process have<br />

been surveyed and nearly 90 percent of those who have<br />

taken part have been positive about their experience.<br />

Ms Lapin says EQC had hoped to resolve all February<br />

<strong>2016</strong> claims by the end of the year but it has suited<br />

some customers to defer their assessment to 2017,<br />

meaning a small number remain open and will be<br />

closed early next year.<br />

Land settlements<br />

update<br />

Almost all land claims will be resolved by the end<br />

of the year but there will be some customers who<br />

will get their settlement in 2017.<br />

At the end of <strong>December</strong> <strong>2016</strong>, out of a total of<br />

approximately 73,000 green zone properties we<br />

expect to have resolved 97% of them. This means we<br />

have either made payments to customers or advised<br />

them that they don’t qualify for the types of land<br />

damage known as Increased Flooding Vulnerability<br />

(IFV) and/or Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV).<br />

“We’ve been working to get an answer to all land<br />

customers waiting to hear from us this year. While we<br />

have worked hard to ensure that customers have<br />

received their land settlement, we are conscious that<br />

some are still waiting”, says EQC’s Head of Customer<br />

and Claims Trish Keith.<br />

“These are the last of the most complex claims that<br />

we need to settle and we will do our best to continue<br />

to deliver robust settlements which can give<br />

homeowners confidence that all properties have been<br />

assessed fairly and consistently”, says Mrs Keith.<br />

“Looking back on the year, we would also like the<br />

opportunity to thank all land customers, community<br />

groups and many other stakeholders, who are also<br />

supporting our customers, for their patience and<br />

understanding as well as taking the time to come to<br />

our community meetings on land settlements or<br />

hosting us and providing us with their feedback”,<br />

concludes Mrs Keith.<br />

The EQC website remains a good source of<br />

information for land customers who want to find out<br />

more about IFV and ILV land damage, which are a<br />

world-first. Please visit www.eqc.govt.nz/IFV or www.<br />

eqc.govt.nz/ILV.<br />

FLAME FILES<br />

KIDSTUFF<br />

Don’t leave clothes in the<br />

dryer while you’re not home<br />

Fire risk management<br />

officer Mark Thomas<br />

talks about call outs<br />

in the lead up to<br />

Christmas and a new<br />

call out to a fire in an<br />

ice cream truck<br />

Another week and<br />

another series of car<br />

crashes in Christchurch.<br />

Twenty-one attended by<br />

Fire Service troops in the<br />

past seven days.<br />

Lately, these seem to be<br />

increasing quite alarmingly.<br />

It might be the time<br />

of year, it might be something<br />

to do with drink<br />

driving, but whatever it<br />

is a car crash just now is<br />

pretty much guaranteed to<br />

result in a less than merry<br />

Christmas.<br />

For goodness sake watch<br />

where you’re driving,<br />

watch other traffic and pedestrians<br />

and don’t speed.<br />

You’ve heard the term<br />

‘fire and ice’. ‘Fire and ice<br />

cream’ doesn’t have the<br />

same ring about it does it?<br />

Every now and then<br />

comes an incident that<br />

is new, even to long-time<br />

firefighters. A recently<br />

opened service station in<br />

Harewood had a fire in<br />

an ice cream machine last<br />

Thursday.<br />

It didn’t come to much<br />

and was shut down by staff<br />

with firefighters just ensuring<br />

no fire spread with a<br />

thermal imaging camera.<br />

I’ve mentioned this<br />

THE PLAYHOUSE CHALLENGE<br />

before but leaving the<br />

house with a clothes dryer<br />

just started is not recommended.<br />

We’ve all done it,<br />

many of us not even thinking<br />

about the possibilities.<br />

Mostly nothing will happen<br />

other than the clothes<br />

being dry when you come<br />

home. But occasionally,<br />

as in Malabar Cres,<br />

Broomfield, last Friday, a<br />

family will come home to a<br />

destroyed home.<br />

By being there while the<br />

appliance is operating,<br />

you increase your chance<br />

of cutting off a fire or at<br />

least having us on the way<br />

earlier.<br />

And every second saved<br />

means so much more of<br />

your stuff saved.<br />

Tenants Protection Association (TPA) Christchurch, Birthright Canterbury, and<br />

Star Media are proud to present Canterbury’s first ever ‘Playhouse Challenge.’<br />

The competition will see some of our top architects and building teams compete<br />

against each other to build Canterbury’s best playhouse and receive an award for<br />

‘Best Architectural Playhouse’ or the ‘People’s Choice’.<br />

The best five playhouses will be judged by an expert panel and members of the<br />

public attending the 2017 Star Home & Leisure Show. The playhouses will be on<br />

display at the Show from 30 June until 2 July, where they will also be auctioned.<br />

Proceeds from the auction will be shared between TPA and Birthright Canterbury<br />

to support their ongoing work in the community.<br />

Send in Your Expression of Interest<br />

If you think you are up for the challenge of building<br />

Canterbury’s best playhouse, please submit an<br />

Expression of Interest by 5pm on 22 <strong>December</strong>.<br />

Visit birthrightchch.org.nz or tpa.org.nz<br />

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to<br />

No job too small at<br />

this repair business<br />

Scratch on the bumper? Dent in the door?<br />

Damage like this can happen so easily – in<br />

supermarket car parks, for example. And<br />

the place to get minor damage quickly and<br />

professionally repaired is SMART Repairs<br />

in Lichfield Street.<br />

SMART (Small to Medium Automotive<br />

Repair Techniques) Repairs provides a topquality<br />

service with a quick turnaround<br />

– vehicles are usually in and out within a<br />

couple of days.<br />

SMART Repairs is owned and operated<br />

by Brian and Maxine Caffell, who bought<br />

their first panelbeating business in 1993.<br />

Brian has a total of 31 years’ experience in<br />

the trade, so customers can be confident<br />

they will get a first-class job.<br />

Services include paintless dent removal,<br />

or PDR, and while a large percentage of<br />

their work is non-insurance, they also<br />

provide insurance quotes and carry out<br />

those repairs quickly and efficiently.<br />

To keep their customers on the road while<br />

their vehicle is in the workshop, SMART<br />

Repairs recently acquired a courtesy car,<br />

and this has already proven to be a great<br />

help for people, Maxine says. They also offer<br />

a pick-up and delivery service if required.<br />

As a small, friendly operation, SMART<br />

Repairs specialises in small to medium<br />

repair work, with no job too small, Maxine<br />

says. Their aim is to provide personalised<br />

service, and make it easy for customers<br />

unsure what to do if their vehicle is<br />

damaged.<br />

“We take pride in our work and ensure<br />

that our customers are happy with the<br />

results.”<br />

SMART Repairs is located at 272<br />

Lichfield Street, at the Fitzgerald Avenue<br />

end. Opening hours are Monday to Friday,<br />

Festive Season Survival Tips<br />

Healthy snacks are always popular<br />

Christmas is a time for celebration,<br />

spending time with friends and<br />

family and enjoying festive foods<br />

and drinks. Nutrition-wise, this<br />

festive fare can be a challenge.<br />

Here are some simple tips to help you<br />

survive the festivities:<br />

• Don’t try to lose weight over the festive<br />

season. With parties, families and all the<br />

special foods that go with Christmas, it’s<br />

going to be just about impossible! Your<br />

main aim should be to maintain your<br />

weight (using some of the tips below!)<br />

• Eat regular meals. If you skip meals you<br />

are more likely to fill up on high fat snacks.<br />

It only takes a few of these snacks to add<br />

up to more calories than your usual meal.<br />

• Avoid going to a function hungry, you<br />

can easily eat a lot of party food in a short<br />

time. Have a small snack beforehand like a<br />

bowl of cereal, yoghurt or a sandwich are<br />

quick and will help fill you up. It will also<br />

help if you are well hydrated, so try drinking<br />

a few glasses of water before you arrive.<br />

• Deep fried foods, crumbed and battered<br />

foods, cheese platter and nuts are all high in<br />

fat. Choose fruit, vegetable or bread based<br />

snacks.<br />

• If you are hosting the party, offer your<br />

guests a range of healthy snacks. Always<br />

popular are hummus or salsa dips with<br />

vegetable sticks.<br />

• If you are taking a plate, make yours a<br />

healthy option. How about a platter of fruit<br />

currently in season?<br />

• Listen to your body and stop eating<br />

when you feel full.<br />

• Just say ‘No” to food – mentally<br />

Be aware of how much you are actually drinking<br />

practice strategies to decline food offers. For<br />

example: “It looks amazing but I am full” or<br />

“I tried it and it was great”.<br />

• Chat and mingle. If you are bored at a<br />

party you’re more likely to hover around the<br />

food table or seek out the serving platter. A<br />

good conversation can distract you from the<br />

food. Avoid standing right beside the food<br />

table or bar while you’re talking.<br />

• Consider your drinks, they can add to<br />

the calorie count very quickly. Try diluting<br />

your alcoholic drinks, such as a spritzer<br />

(½ wine, ½ soda). If you prefer spirits,<br />

try a diet mixer. Lite beers are lower in<br />

calories and alcohol. Remember soft drinks,<br />

juices, punches, tonic water and flavoured<br />

mineral water can all have similar calories<br />

to alcoholic drinks.<br />

•Be aware of how much you are actually<br />

drinking. Alternate alcoholic drinks with<br />

glasses of water and non-alcoholic choices.<br />

• Keep Active. Join in the Christmas<br />

backyard cricket game or go for a walk<br />

with friends or relatives. Remember you’re<br />

aiming for 30 minutes of physical activity<br />

each day.<br />

• If your regular exercise class stops over<br />

the Christmas break, plan other types of<br />

exercise - organise your friends and put a<br />

date in your diary.<br />

If you do really overdo the festive foods<br />

or drinks, take a deep breath and start the<br />

next day afresh with healthy foods and some<br />

exercise. No fasting - just sensible eating.<br />

Remember, a few parties don’t make you<br />

overweight, it’s what you do all the other<br />

days of the year which count.<br />

FOCUS ON HEALTH<br />

Arthritis &<br />

back pain<br />

to rest or keep moving?<br />

With arthritis and back pain 30 years ago<br />

the advice was to rest. But research has<br />

shown that inactivity only makes things<br />

worse.<br />

Move, move, move is always the advice<br />

for arthritis. Staying in bed with back pain<br />

often results in greater difficulty moving<br />

and may prolong the pain. Better to stay<br />

active, garden or walk to the shops.<br />

A pain killer may enable you to continue<br />

normal activities. Any movement, no<br />

matter how small, helps relieve pain. Start<br />

gently with something you enjoy.<br />

There’s no quick fix for back pain but<br />

you need to keep moving. You can keep<br />

your legs and lower back moving with an<br />

Aircycle circulation booster while you sit.<br />

By working your legs, your core muscles<br />

which help support your back, also work<br />

and strengthen. Lower back pain and<br />

sciatica, aching legs and joints are often<br />

relieved this way.<br />

So move – even while you sit. The<br />

Aircycle “pedal” exercise enables this. And<br />

don’t forget to laugh occasionally. That<br />

massages your internal organs and helps<br />

you relax.<br />

Back pain however, has many and varied<br />

causes. Never neglect seeking medical<br />

advice.<br />

Effective<br />

natural skincare<br />

that is ideal for<br />

problem skin<br />

MooGoo produce a full range<br />

of safe, natural skin and scalp<br />

products that are especially<br />

suited for those with problem<br />

skin. In these products they<br />

only use top quality edible<br />

ingredients that are known to<br />

be highly effective and good<br />

for our skin. These active<br />

ingredients are only used in<br />

correct concentrations for<br />

effective results and not just<br />

added to look good on the<br />

label. Because the MooGoo<br />

range is so safe and yet so<br />

effective is probably why it<br />

was rated the number one<br />

most preferred brand of nonprescription<br />

(non-steroid)<br />

creams for those suffering from<br />

problem skin in Australia.<br />

It is also recommended by<br />

many medical practitioners in<br />

Australia.<br />

As MooGoo products are<br />

safe and natural they are ideal<br />

for long term use from babies<br />

to adults. They are an effective<br />

alternative or follow-up<br />

treatment to chemically-based<br />

ointments.<br />

Collagen<br />

the body’s youth protein<br />

Collagen is the primary<br />

protein in the body. It is a major<br />

component of skin, hair, nails,<br />

muscles, tendons, ligaments,<br />

joint cartilage, bones, gums,<br />

teeth, eyes, and blood vessels.<br />

In fact collagen is the primary<br />

structural component for all<br />

tissue in the body, providing<br />

the strength and resilience<br />

associated with youth, beauty<br />

and wellness. The body’s natural<br />

collagen production decreases<br />

with age resulting in many signs<br />

of aging, such as flaccid skin,<br />

wrinkles, ligament and tendon<br />

injuries and aching joints.<br />

Collagen supplementation is<br />

one of the most fundamental<br />

things a person can do to<br />

prevent premature aging and<br />

promote youthful vitality.<br />

NEOCELL are the industry<br />

leaders in research on collagen<br />

supplementation. Through<br />

advanced research they have<br />

perfected a way to hydrolyse<br />

collagen and effectively reduce<br />

its molecular weight this<br />

improving the absorption of<br />

collagen into the blood stream<br />

by over 90%.<br />

A clinical study on<br />

NEOCELL COLLAGEN<br />

has shown skin hydration to<br />

increase an average of 21%<br />

and up to 50%, with 92% of<br />

test subjects experiencing<br />

firmer, softer skin. Most<br />

people taking NEOCELL<br />

COLLAGEN reported seeing<br />

visible improvements within<br />

two weeks.<br />

Collagen supplementation<br />

provides the nutrients necessary<br />

to support the body’s collagen<br />

supply. It can help reduce fine<br />

lines and wrinkles and improve<br />

skin elasticity, support building<br />

of strong bones and teeth,<br />

strengthen the nails and hair,<br />

and is vital for muscle growth,<br />

It also assists weight loss by<br />

helping burn fat for energy,<br />

promotes wound healing by<br />

supporting the regeneration of<br />

healthy tissue as well as help<br />

support overall health.<br />
