St Barnabas returns

• By Julia Evans

ST BARNABAS will reopen its

doors on Sunday – almost six

years after it was badly damaged

in the February 2011 earthquake.

The iconic Fendalton Rd

church has undergone $2 million

in repairs.

It will be celebrating the opening

at 10am on Sunday, February

19, just before the six-year anniversary

of the quake.

St Barnabas vicar Mark

Chamberlain said most church

members have not yet been

inside the church.

Bishop of the Anglican

Diocese of Christchurch,

Victoria Matthews, will speak

at the opening service. A special

choir of church members and

others around the city will sing

at the opening.

Items, such as the church’s

bible, baptism jug and music

books, which were removed from

the church at the time of the

earthquake, have been returned.

Rev Chamberlain said the

returning items were “symbolic”

of the church’s opening.

The repairs involved

earthquake strengthening and

repairing stonework and the

stained glass windows.

The strengthening has brought

the church up to at least 67

per cent of the new building

standard.

Extensive fundraising to pay

for the work was done by the

church congregation, which had

been using the adjacent hall since

St Barnabas closed.

St Barnabas was originally

built as a memorial church

honouring those who died in

World War 1.

It has been home to many

influential Christchurch

figures through its long history,

including vicar and broadcaster

Canon Bob Lowe and vicar

Michael Underhill who went on

to become dean of Christchurch.

SUNDAY WILL be a big day in

the Nor’west, and indeed across

Christchurch – St Barnabas

reopens.

The earthquake repairs have

been six years in the making,

and seeing one of the city’s older

buildings restored to its former

glory is simply great.

St Barnabas is obviously a treasure

for those who use it for worship,

weddings and other things.

But is also pleasing on the eye

asthetically for those who don’t

stop but are travelling to and from

the airport.

On page 3 today we have the

latest update on Aaron Keown’s

bid to get lights in at the intersection

of Harewood, Gardiners and

Breens Rd.

Keown has this issue by the tail

and he’s not letting go.

And he still has that $100 he

has pledged to give away in his

pocket. - Barry Clarke

Keown steps up campaign

• By Julia Evans

CITY COUNCILLOR Aaron

Keown’s campaign to get

traffic lights at the Harewood,

Gardiners and Breens Rds

intersection led to a public

turnout of almost 100 people

last week.

Cr Keown held a public

meeting at the site and was

surprised at the turnout.

Most residents were “dumbfounded”

that a set of lights

had not been put at the intersection

and the remedy was

“ridiculously obvious,” he said.

One person was against the

idea of lights, but everyone

else was in support of them, he

said.

Cr Keown said doing it the

“opposite way around” and

• By Julia Evans

using the wisdom of the local

community to drive the design

requirements made the evening

a real success.

He said having a meeting on

a roadside to get design ideas

is not the “norm” and plans

would usually be made by city

council staff then presented to

the public. His last chance to

get the intersection in the city

council’s annual budget is next

week’s city council meeting,

but Cr Keown said he needs

public support.

Cr Keown campaigned for

improvements to the intersection

in the run up to last year’s

local body elections.

“I’ve got to get the community

to turn up . . . it’s really,

really important that people

submit,” he said.

AARON KEOWN still has

the $100 he promised to give

the person who could identify

a worse intersection than the

Harewood, Gardiners and

Breens Rds injunction.

Cr Keown issued the challenge

in a bid to strengthen his

belief the Bishopdale intersection

was the worst in the city.

Two people, Ashley Harvey

and Hamish Middleton, both

of Northwood, came forward

to claim the $100. They said

the Neill St, Canterbury St and

Main South Rd intersection in

Hornby met the requirements.

But Cr Keown said that

intersection was no worse than

the Harewood, Gardiners and

$100 intersection challenge still for the taking

Breens Rds junction, so therefore

no payout.

“It’s got to be worse, it can’t

just be the same. More lanes to

cross or more kids in the area,”

he said.

The intersection covers 10

lanes like the Bishopdale intersection

and is near The Hub

Hornby and Sockburn School.

“That intersection isn’t on the

radar for a change, maybe that’s

why it’s been a suggestion . . .

I’m interested to look at it next.”

In Brief

ABBERLEY PARK CONCERN

St Albans residents are unhappy

with Abberley Park’s announced

playground upgrade. The

Friends of Abberley Park group

has made a submission to the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board expressing

its concern over the loss of green

space and “special character” of

the park in favour of playground

extensions.

TOY LIBRARY FUNDING

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board has approved $3000 of

funding for the Shirley Toy

Library. The funding will go

towards librarian wages. The

board stressed the importance

of the library to the community,

which operates out of

Hammersley Park School. It has

been running since the Burwood

and St Albans toy libraries

merged in 2009.

NO STOPPING

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board has decided to install

no-stopping restrictions on the

corner of Main North Rd and

Tuckers Rd. It will prevent cars

parking near the corner on the

northern side of the road in an

effort to reduce the build up of

traffic turning right from Tuckers

Rd onto Main North Rd.

Lawrence shows he still has

Three north-west gardens have won awards

at the Christchurch Beautifying Association

summer garden competition. Julia Evans reports

NORTHWOOD’S Peter

Lawrence had a bulldozer

through his property early last

year but downsizing hasn’t

stopped him from adding

another premier garden award to

his 80-strong collection.

Mr Lawrence won four awards

in the Christchurch Beautifying

Association’s summer garden

competition, including the Ruske

and Walsh cups for garden cultivation

and maintenance.

His new garden still looked

“pretty good” but he was surprised

to win the association’s

top award, the Ruske Cup.

Behind his modesty, a lot

of time is spent creating and

maintaining his gardens. Mr

Lawrence said he is out there

each day.

“Starting with a water first

thing each morning . . . every day

is a new challenge.”

Mr Lawrence said it was “good

for the community and good for

the individual” to take pride in

their garden, especially because

Christchurch is the garden city.

In between maintaining his

own property, Mr Lawrence also

runs a gardening club and has

judged the street and garden

awards across the city.

Association president

Ron Andrew said in spite of

downsizing his garden by

half, Mr Lawrence deserved the

win.

“He sets an example for the

other members and the standard

is extremely high,” Mr Andrew

said.

Although Mr Lawrence wins

a lot of awards, new gardeners

were not discouraged from

entering the garden competition.

There were more entries this year

than any other.

Northwood residents Janet

and Brian Lovelock also won

seven awards in the competition.

This included the best display

of flowers and colour impact;

outdoor living; residential

driveway display and the

continuing standard awards.

Mrs Lovelock said they were

thrilled to have won.

Since retiring, the pair have

spent all their time together

in the garden, but that doesn’t

always make for a relaxing day.

“It’s full pressure, but it’s

still enjoyable or we wouldn’t

compete,” said Mrs Lovelock.

For them, the real beauty

comes from encouraging new

gardeners, and Mrs Lovelock

said if their garden inspires other

people “it’s worth it.”

They have been competing in

the garden competition for six

years since moving into their

new house but have already lost

count of the awards they’ve won.

Another north-west resident,

Peter Van der Zee, also won a

pair of awards.

His gold in the best tree/

shrub category and silver in the

Herbert Cup will now sit next

to Mr Van der Zee’s 251 other

gardening awards collected over

the past 30 years.

Although he has a massive

collection of gardening titles, Mr

Van der Zee said winning now is

still as exciting as when he won

Lawrence’s

garden has

top prize in the

Beautifying

Association

competition.

GEOFF SLOAN

his first award, which was for

best novice garden.

He spends a few hours every

day in his garden and said the

awards are “just the icing on the

cake” to his favourite past time.

Gardening was a passion of his

which was passed down from his

grandfather and parents.

Mr Van der Zee said he will

buy a drink for anyone who can

spot his grandfather’s old push

mower still hidden in his garden.

Head students who will lead the way

Head boys and girls have been named at local high

schools. In the case of Mairehau High, two girls have

outpointed their male rivals.

Papanui High School

Head girl: Britney Aldridge

Britney said

she is proud to

be head girl at

Papanui High

School for 2017.

Her main goal

as head girl is to

encourage and

foster school spirit.

Britney has been a representative

of the New Zealand karate

team since 2009, when she first

competed in the World Karate

Cup. She will complete at the

junior world under 21 karate

competitions in Spain in October

this year.

Her academic aim is to achieve

NCEA level 3 and to study for a

Bachelor of Applied Sports Science

at Ara in 2018.

Head boy:

Mikael Ewans

Mikael said it

is a privilege to

be head boy at

Papanui High

School this year.

His main goal as head boy is

to support and reinforce the inclusive

nature of the school and

wider community.

He is currently training towards

his black belt in karate.

His academic aim is to achieve

NCEA level 3 with excellence

and study for a Bachelor of Engineering

at Canterbury University

in 2018.

St Andrew’s College

Head girl: Elizabeth Stevenson

Elizabeth is

a former New

Zealand

trampoline

champion, and

has received

awards from

AMP and the

North Canterbury Sportsperson

of the Year.

She plays the piano, is a member

of the college’s Maadi Cup

rowing squad, and has provided

voluntary help for a number of

local charities.

She was also a Strowan Scottish

scholarship recipient in 2016.

Head boy -

Angus Syme

Angus is a

national swimming

champion

and a member

of the high performance

New

Zealand swim team.

He has completed his Silver

Duke of Edinburgh award and

was awarded the Strowan Scottish

Scholarship in 2016, travelling

to Scotland for five weeks to

visit a number of schools.

Mairehau High School

Heads of school: Shilah Norman

and Kodie North

Shilah (right)

chaired the

Mairehau High

School Student

Council in 2016.

Under her leadership,

many new

school initiatives and projects

were successfully introduced,

including a new school jacket.

Both girls volunteered their

time in the community as part

of the Student Volunteer Army,

and were involved in leadership

opportunities outside of school,

such as Canterbury University’s

leadership day and the Deloittes

Grow programme.

Shilah and

Kodie (right) are

well-rounded

young women

who excel in

their academic

endeavours, both

gaining their NCEA certificates

with endorsement in 2016. Shilah

has particular strengths in physical

education, while Kodie excels

in art and photography.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

Head of school: Meg Dutton

As Head Girl

of Rangi Ruru

for 2017, I am

privileged to

have the opportunity

to be involved

with and

work alongside a

diverse range of girls within the

school.

Our theme for this year is ‘be

bold and break barriers.’ Being

bold includes encouraging girls

to step outside of their comfort

zone and back themselves by saying

“yes” to new opportunities.

I can’t wait to see what barriers

we break together and the

impact that we can have on our

community in the future.

Burnside High School

Head girl: Izzy Prasad

Head boy: Sam Burt

Deputy head girl: Jess Cliffe

Deputy head boy: Ali Abbari

St Bede’s College

Head boy - Harry Staples

It is incredibly humbling being

chosen to lead St Bede’s College

in 2017. Often you’ll find me involved

in initiatives that support

the community and embracing

the unique values of St Bede’s, or

out on the sidelines of sports fields

coaching, captaining, playing or

training for the sports I love.

Deputy head boy: Adam

Lyons

Music and sport is important

to who I am as a person. I take

pride in my college playing both

the saxophone and guitar as

well as playing football in the St

Bede’s College first XI.

Deputy head boy: Jake McKay

I’m all about the whole school

pride and passion side of the

college. I can’t get enough of

the drama, I find that being on

stage is the best thing since sliced

bread. Most of all chanting my

heart out on the side line to get

the boys hyped for the Rugby!

young man in Woodham Rd

from catching his clothing on

fire. The final cause is still being

investigated but this is a good

example of something I have

come to realise over years of

being a fire investigator.

That is the number of ‘near

misses’ is many, many times the

number of incidents we attend.

Most of these ‘near misses’ occur

without anyone being aware they

have happened. But every now

and then a perfect series of circumstances

line up in a row and

the result is fire. Sometimes, like

in Woodham Rd, with a tragic

outcome.

A less serious outcome in

Oram Ave, New Brighton, is

a good example. It’s summer

time. So the placing of a picture

frame on the top of a freestanding

fireplace is not unusual or

even dangerous. Until we get

an unseasonal cold snap and

someone lights the fire to warm

the house. Then goes out. In

this case the result was only a

smokelogged house. But one or

two more circumstances, like it

being bedtime, and perhaps a few

drinks and we could have had

another tragedy.

A slightly closer near miss on

the same day in Bishopdale saw

some sleeping occupants remaining

fast asleep as their smoke

alarm shrieked. In this case it

was food left cooking on the

stove. The alarm was overheard

by a neighbour and 111 called.

Without the call? Who knows?

Victory for residents as

contractor moves out

• By Julia Evans

A CONTRACTING company

which had Richmond residents

up in arms has now vacated

their site.

Worthington Contracting had

occupied the address in Guild

St since the February 22, 2011

earthquake, after the Government

put emergency legislation

in place allowing contractors

access to residential areas.

After nearly six years residents

were ready to see the back of

the company and laid several

complaints about dust plumes

and sediment to Environment

Canterbury.

However, after a “collaborative

conversation” between

neighbours and the company,

Worthington Contracting has

now made a new premises home

in North Canterbury.

Founder Russell Worthington

said they weren’t there to annoy

the residents, it was a matter of

proximity to their jobs, which

have largely been in the east.

“We’re listening to what

they’re saying,” he said.

They have now moved away.

Although the company had

Rangi Ruru students join

global technology project

SCHOOLS

• By Julia Evans

SIX RANGI Ruru Girls’ School

students have become New

Zealand’s only representatives

selected for an international

science, technology, engineering

and mathematics project.

From more than 4000

applications worldwide, and 13

across New Zealand, the Rangi

Ruru students were selected to

take part in the project, which is

being run by the Junior Academy

Programme.

Jocelyn Bradley and Penny

Dray, year 13, and Sam

Summerfield, Amber Spurway,

Sarah Lawrence and Lucy

Anderson, year 11, were all

selected for the project.

The academy is a group of

problem solvers made up of

students; science, technology,

engineering and mathematics

experts; and companies from

around the world, which

are dedicated to designing

innovative solutions to global

challenges.

Each student has been put

in a different team with other

teenagers from around the

world.

Amber’s group will be working

with multi-national corporation

PepsiCo to look into nutritional

problems in developing

countries.

“Our team has decided

to build a rudimentary

spectrophotometer to be used

with our mobile phones, which

will be able to measure iron

levels in foods and soil levels,”

Amber said.

“This can be used in countries

with acute malnutrition, so they

can be informed on whether they

are lacking iron.”

She said her group was doing

well at the moment, but there

was quite a lot of time pressure.

Once finished, the students

will receive certificates of

completion and gain access to a

global network of students

and professionals, including

the New York Academy of

Science.

HELPING OUT: Mairehau High students Niko Smith and Erin

Mander gave up their holiday time to install new computers.

Mairehau High tech upgrade

MAIREHAU HIGH School

received new desktop computers

during the summer break as

part of a planned upgrade.

A lot of work was involved in

setting up the new computers

and disposing of the old ones.

Students rallied to help with

the upgrade rather than spend

the remaining days of their

school holidays relaxing.

“It was wonderful to see the

energy, enthusiasm and commitment

to the task shown by

these students over the course

of two hot summer days,” said

assistant principal Rebecca

Swanson.

“Mairehau High School is also

grateful to Youthtown for its

generous donation of $10,000

towards the purchase of new

has been key in introducing

device) at year 9 this year, whilst

ensuring that every student has

BURNSIDE’S CAIT Bassett

and Richard Hocking are both

in the New Zealand bowls

development squad for 2017.

The pair are the only Cantabrians

selected for the 14-strong

squad, which was named following

last month’s national open

championships.

From this squad, a 10-person

team will be selected for June’s

series against Australia on the

Gold Coast.

Bassett was runner-up to fellow

squad member Ashleigh Jeffcoat,

of Waikato, in the national

under-21 championships.

Hocking is joined in the men’s

team by the likes of 16-year-old

Seamus Curtin, of Wellington,

who was a singles silver medallist

at the 2015 Youth Commonwealth

Games and is the current

under-18 national champion.

The upcoming under-18 and

take on added importance as

they will certainly influence the

Coast.

Windsurfer ‘stoked’ with success

• By Noah Graham

MERIVALE HOUSE of

Travel owner Annie Crombie

is revelling in success after

winning the windsurfing slalom

national championships for the

ninth time.

Crombie faced five other

competitors and battled through

10 rounds of slalom races to

finish with seven wins and was

ahead by three seconds on the

clock, which secured her title

win.

Crombie said the competition

was tough and made her “puff a

lot” but it was the first time since

she started windsurfing competitively

that she did not have

nerves before the races

in spite of the strong competition.

The 49-year-old has

windsurfed for more than 25

years and started competing in

2007.

The races were harder this

year than they ever had been,

Crombie said.

She said 19-year-old Lyttelton

resident Fenella Bowater raced

alongside and pushed her to the

limit.

The competitors this year were

exceptional both on and off the

water as they got along well inbetween

races, often talking and

having some fun, Crombie said.

In the under-20 youth

women’s event, Bowater took

first spot and another Lyttelton

competitor, 15-year-old Meg

Rennie, came second.

In the under-20 youth men’s

event, a former Christ’s College

student Thomas O’Neill and

current student Ben Davie took

the second and third spots.

Terry Crombie, Annie’s

husband, also competed in

the men’s open and was

winning for two days before

Maui’s Peter John passed from

behind.

Crombie said windsurfing

runs through her family’s genes.

Her 15-year-old daughter,

Kate, is also a keen windsurfer.

NOR’WEST NEWS

SUCCESS:

Annie Crombie

claimed her

ninth national

windsurfing title

last weekend.

She competed

against five of

New Zealand’s

best women

windsurfers.

Crombie said her family was

incredibly proud and she was

proud of herself as well.

“I feel stoked, I feel proud. I

raced at national level and it’s

really satisfying to do.”

She said the 10th title is in her

sights but Bowater will not make

it easy. •More sport, pg 15

Clinton to meet NBA stars

• By Gordon Findlater

QUINN CLINTON will

test his skills against some

of the world’s top young

basketballers in New Orleans

at the weekend.

Clinton, 18, won a spot

at the Basketball Without

Borders global event after he

was named the all-star game

MVP at the BWB Asia camp

in Melbourne last year.

“It will be a step up from

Melbourne because it’s now

the best guys in the world. It

will be really cool to see how I

match up against guys my age

from different countries,” said

Clinton.

The former Christchurch

Boys’ High School student

will also get to experience the

NBA All-Star game, which

the BWB camp coincides

with.

“It’s going to be pretty special

seeing all of those guys,

who are the best in the world

essentially. I’ll be like a kid in

a candy shop,” said Clinton.

The guard will get to see

the likes of LeBron James,

Steph Curry and Kevin

Durant in action in Sunday’s

all star game as well as the

three-point contest and dunk

contest on Saturday.

He will be one of two Kiwis

at the camp, joined by Wellington’s

Taane Samuel.

“I’m really looking forward

to this experience. It’s going

to be great for Taane and

I to represent our country

together and help promote

New Zealand basketball on

the world stage. I’m keen to

learn as much as I can from

the NBA coaches and players,

and get an insight into what

it means to play at this higher

level,” said Clinton.

In December, Clinton

played a crucial role in New

Zealand’s 57-51 win over

Australia in the final of the

under-18 FIBA Oceania

Championship, which saw

them qualify for the inder-19

World Championship in

Egypt in July.

Clinton, the Junior Tall

Blacks captain, top scored for

New Zealand in the final with

14 points.

After a much-deserved

break over the Christmas

period, Clinton is now fully

focused on preparing himself

for the upcoming NBL season

with the Canterbury Rams.

He is currently training every

day of the week ahead of the

season opener on March 19.

Following the NBL season,

Clinton will move to Albuquerque,

New Mexico, in August

to begin his basketball

scholarship at the University

of New Mexico.

SPORTS

SHOT: Quinn Clinton will play against the world’s best

juniors and watch the top NBA players in New Orleans at

the weekend.

Urgently Required

NZIIU requires kind & caring

families to host Japanese

CHAMPIONS: The Linwood Keas defeated the Hornby Panthers to take out the

Crosbie Nines.

Keas win Crosbie Nines

• By Gordon Findlater

LINWOOD Keas took

the spoils at the annual

Crosbie Nines on

Saturday.

The tournament, hosted

by the Riccarton Knights

at Crosbie Park, is now

in its third year and was

played in perfect conditions.

The 16-team tournament

featured some of the

South Island’s top clubs,

as well as teams put together

specifically for the

tournament.

“It was a great day, the

first game was at nine in

the morning and the final

finished up just before six.

The tournament’s great

for bringing everyone

together. We had nearly

all the premiership teams

there and some out-oftown

teams from Nelson

and Timaru,” said former

Kinghts president, Tony

Grenfell.

The Keas went unbeaten

through pool play before

going on to defeat the

Hornby Panthers 17-12 in

the grand-final.

“It was really pleasing

after a long day. It’s tough

to get through six games

but the boys dug deep and

got the result we wanted,”

said Keas coach Andrew

Auimatagi.

The plate competition

was won by the Bro XIII

club which defeated Hamo

Boyz in their final.

Crosbie Park saw a

large turnout from club

supporters and Grenfell

felt the tournament was

becoming more popular

each year.

“It was quite a big punt

to begin with; we kind of

went in blind but we were

overwhelmed with

how well it went,” said

Grenfell.

“The second year went

even better and now we’re

able to fine tune things a

little bit to help improve

the tournament each

year.”

The top clubs will now

turn their attention to the

club premiership, which

starts on April 1.

If you’re a parent of school-aged children, chances are

that there is a subject they just don’t like. And for many

kids, that subject is maths.

Like many parents, Dale and Kirsty found that their

daughter Sayler, 8, just didn’t understand maths and it

was proving difficult to keep up at school. So, Dale and

Kirsty decided it was time to give Sayler that extra help she

needed and enrolled her in the Kumon Maths Programme

at their local centre in Fendalton. It was during the August

Free Trial, and so they decided to see if their older son Zach

might enjoy Kumon Maths also.

Six months later and both children are still doing daily

worksheets with Kumon. Maths is now one of Zach’s

favourite subjects and Sayler has demonstrated a real

motivation for improving in her studies. That Kumon

worksheets are timed makes this easy for Sayler to see, ‘She

is really keen to beat her time. I think having those little

goals certainly help’ said Dale.

A sense of achievement can go a long way when it comes

to engaging with maths. ‘Everyone likes it when they have

success, don’t they? Being able to see that progress is great’

said Kirsty.

‘Kumon focuses on maths skills - exclusively and

expertly’ said Marette Wells who runs the Kumon

Fendalton Education Centre. ‘The ability of the student

does not matter; Kumon brings confidence as they grow

into their potential’.

Kumon follows a method that develops self-learning in

children which is important to parents like Kirsty. ‘I think

it’s really important that our children know that if they

need to find out how to do something then they have the

skills to work it out.’

For more information contact your local Kumon

Education Centre or visit our website nz.kumonglobal.com

Back to school with confidence

At Kumon, students begin study at a level that allows them to build

confidence from day one. Students progress through the programmes

based on their ability rather than their age. Over time, students can study

advanced material confidently and independently for success in school

and everyday life.

Contact your local Kumon Centre to hear how we can support your

child’s learning.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School’s premier tennis team have won the Christchurch

qualifying tournament for next month’s South Island secondary school

championships. Ava Willimann, Kyla Otway, Jade Feneon, Tessa McCann and

Luka Simmers beat Christchurch Girls’ High School 6-0 and St Margaret’s

College 4-2 in the tournament. Anne Bissland, Rangi Ruru’s premier tennis

convener, said the girls’ played very well but have a busy competition

schedule ahead of them this term. Last week’s result at Wilding Park means

REAL ESTATE

Enviable Fendalton address

26 Hinau Street, Fendalton

Deadline Sale - all offers will be presented 28th February 2017 unless sold prior.

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street carparks | Listing # SMT10078

Situated in the heart of this popular

part of the city, this beautifully renovated

home has been moderinised with families

in mind. Encompassing four bedrooms

and two bathrooms, generous off street

parking, a sunny north facing family

sized section plus contemporary master

bedroom combined parents retreat with

its own ensuite complimented by a private

secluded garden and outdoor deck.

Our vendors have seamlessly blended

design elements with the timeless features

of this classic home. The contemporary

kitchen - complete with engineered stone

surfaces and European appliances- is a real

highlight, while the sun-soaked living and

dining spaces offer ample room for families

to enjoy.

This character bungalow has been

modernised throughout including

insulation, a double-glazed retro fit, new

plumbing, and new roof while enduring

features such as timber floors and French

doors help to retain the appeal.

Outside, the large 908m2 section

along with the sun-soaked patio area is

an entertainer’s delight with manicured

lawns offering plenty of space for growing

families.

Double garaging and a generous

driveway with plenty of off-street parking

complete the package.

The location is exceptional, with zoning

for the ever-popular Girls’ and Boys’ High

School, St Thomas’, St Patrick’s and close

distance to Medbury, Rangi Ruru and St

Andrews’, underpinning your investment

and the proximity to the Westfields and

the Fendalton Village shopping precinct

and an easy stroll to the Riccarton Farmers

Market - not to mention cafes, parks and

key public transport routes - ensuring

you’ll want for nothing.

My owners are sad to be leaving this

fabulous spot which has served their family

well but resolute in their decision, and a

change of ownership is imminent. Interest

will invariably be high and immediate

action is advised.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Varicose veins treated

quickly and effectively

Transform Clinic in Mandeville Street

Riccarton boasts a team of dedicated

professionals, who include the clinic’s doctor,

Ian Little, registered nurses and qualified

beauty therapists, providing a wide range

of appearance medicine and beauty therapy

treatments for their clients.

One of their main specialties is nonsurgical

varicose vein removal. This is a

simple, quick and effective walk-in walk-out

treatment with no time off work required.

Clients seeking advice about their varicose

veins first undergo a free assessment, which

enables the health professional to determine

if they need treatment, and if so, what the

most appropriate type would be.

Two methods are offered – endo-venous

laser treatment, which is used for both

smaller and larger veins, and ultrasound

guided sclerotherapy. Following the

treatment, clients need to wear support

stockings for two weeks. International travel

is not recommended for four weeks after

treatment.

Transform Clinic has an affiliation

with health provider Southern Cross and

relationships with several other health

insurance companies, which means clients

may be covered for varicose vein treatment,

providing it is included in their policy.

Appearance medicine is another key

aspect of Transform Clinic’s therapy options,

with skin rejuvenation and skin-tightening

treatments designed to improve skin quality

as well as enhance self-esteem.

Treatments include the Vampire Face Lift,

which uses Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP, and

Fraxel laser treatment. These treatments can

be combined to achieve the desired results.

Sclerotherapy is also used to remove

superficial veins on the legs and face. In

addition, the clinic offers mole mapping,

mole removal and primary skin cancer

removal.

The Transform Clinic website,

www.transformclinic.co.nz, has a wealth of

information on the various treatments and

regularly has special offers and promotions.

They also suggest you ‘like’ their Facebook

page, to keep up to date with what they

are offering.

The Transform Clinic is discreetly

located at 52a Mandeville Street. Opening

hours are Monday to Friday from 8.30am,

with late nights on Tuesday and Thursday,

and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. Phone

343-2880 to enquire about treatments or

make an appointment.

Varicose Vein Treatment

Non-surgical Vein Laser Treatments available

Free Assessment

Tired of aching and unsightly veins?

No surgery, no scars, no stitches. No time off work

- continue normal daily activities. An affiliated provider to

Southern Cross Health Society (medical necessity

criteria apply) - check your policy for cover.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

An extensive range

of lights

Braxton Car Lights is part

of the BE Group, one of

the largest importers of

car, commercial and truck

parts in New Zealand.

Specialising in car lights, Braxton

covers the entire South Island and

the combination of their huge

on-site range, national and

international networks, and a computerised

system to search and try to assist most any

request to the correct replacements makes

them the place to visit for all your vehicle

lighting requirements.

Conveniently located in Sydenham, they

have an extensive range of replacement

light fittings for most makes and models of

Japanese, European and New Zealand new

vehicles, both new and secondhand. They are

fully checked and in perfect working order,

and Braxton guarantee that all their fittings

are warrantable.

They import and export both new and used

car parts so that whatever make or model

your vehicle is, they may be able to help.

Containers arrive monthly from abroad, full

of new and used lamps, and within the BE

Group, over 100,000 lamps are available.

The team at Braxton Car Lights also

specialises in repairs for light adjuster and

light conversion of American car lights, and

their repair service includes plastic welding,

drying out and resealing, re-silvering and

lens refurbishment. They work closely with

garage workshops, and their services can be

arranged through your own local garage on

your behalf.

Sales manager Richard Vernimmen says

that their team is dedicated to saving their

customers’ money, whether on late model

cars with expensive parts or early models

where replacements are hard to find. The team

of three expert professionals at Braxton have

over 60 years of experience between them

in the automotive industry to help you with

your needs.

Their aim at Braxton is to supply their

customers the parts that they require

at a pocket-friendly price. And with

heaps of available stock, they will do

everything to provide a solution to their car

light-searching exercise.

Stop by to see them at 325 Brougham

Street, between Buchan and Gasson streets.

AN ECLECTIC ESTABLISHMENT

As featured in February STYLE Taste: Vanessa Ortynsky discovers

Urban Corner Cafe has much more to offer than initially meets the eye.

ON the former site of the Bower Hotel

in New Brighton stands the Urban

Corner Cafe (alongside with e

Bower), which is one of the most

eclectic establishments in the city.

Urban Corner is uniquely

Christchurch in that it’s constructed of

18 shipping containers. It’s a standout

on the landscape, situated near the

residential red zone and overlooking

the Avon River. Upon setting foot

inside this spacious establishment, you

immediately forget about its modular

construction methods.

With its warm and family-friendly

vibe, Urban Corner has become a

community hub for New Brighton

locals. e restaurant serves up brunch, lunch and

dinner on a daily basis. Menu items are seasonal and

the Pork Belly Burger served with coleslaw and

cranberry sauce is a must-try for summer.

ere’s also a kids menu and a playground outside,

catering to mums looking for a place to bring the little

ones for a play date. ere’s Farmyard Animal Day with

pony rides on the last Sunday of every month in

summer, weather permitting, which includes a Llama

with a bad haircut and ponies of all sizes. As well as a

separate shipping container that can be hired for kids

parties.

With plenty of entertainment for the older crowd as

well, ‘Stitch n Bitch’ is hosted by a local

artists and is every second Monday.

It’s an excellent spot to discover new

Kiwi artists and local talent.

e dining room is adorned with

brightly-coloured kitschy decor. You

can purchase any of the art that lines

the walls of this establishment. You’re

sure to get a laugh out of some of the

quirky tongue-in-cheek posters and

signage.

Sharing the premises with e

Bower proves advantageous as Urban

Corner features an extensive beer and

wine list without the central-city price

tag. e Friday menu comes with a

$20 price tag, there is always events

and special deals - including Wednesday and ursday

feed the family of four for $50. Keep an eye on their

Facebook page for even more stellar specials. If you are

looking for a takeaway, there is a full range of cabinet

available too.

A little bit different from your traditional cafe and

bar, this friendly place is sure to delight. If you’re

looking for a local eatery, or keen to experience the

warmth and hospitality of the eastern suburbs. Urban

Corner is a sure bet.
