Bishop Matthews

reopens St Barnabas

VICTORIA MATTHEWS,

Bishop of the Anglican Diocese

of Christchurch, was keynote

speaker at the reopening of St

Barnabas Anglican Church.

The iconic church has been

repaired after earthquake

damage, with costs totalling $2

million. The funds were largely

raised by the parish.

St Barnabas vicar Mark

Chamberlain said it was a

marvellous first service and they

also held a history lecture, dinner

and variety concert.

The Tongan Anglican Community

Choir performed at the

ceremony.

Compromise

found on

size of

Abberley

playground

• By Julia Evans

RESIDENTS HAVE stopped a

major upgrade of playground

equipment at their local park

because they said it would take

up too much green space.

The upgrades were set to go

ahead in Abberley Park in March

and equipment was going utilise

more than double the space it

previously had taken.

However, after a meeting on

February 16, new plans have been

drafted. The Friends of Abberley

Park group, the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board and city council staff met

to significantly reduce the space

the initial upgrade would have

taken.

City councillor and board

member Aaron Keown attended

the meeting and he said he was

confident the new proposal found

a compromise both parties could

be happy with.

The space taken up by play

equipment is less than it was and

the equipment has been moved so

it is no longer taking space away

from the park’s east lawn.

Cr Keown said he had received

emails from several members of

the group who were content with

the new proposed plans.

In Brief

TRAFFIC CONCERN

A Harewood residents’ group

has expressed concern over

the Kilmuir Lane/Harewood

Rd intersection. The Kilmuir

Residents’ Group said motorists

turning right out of the lane

have reduced visibility because

of cars parked on Harewood Rd.

The major issue is when sport is

being played at nearby Nunweek

Park. Residents said they have

all experienced at least one near

miss at the junction. The group

has submitted a letter to the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board asking for

no-stopping restrictions or

some other safety measure to be

installed.

UPGRADE FINISHED

Work on the intersection where

Westminster and Courtenay Sts

meet Roosevelt Ave has almost

finished. The roundabout has

been removed and turned into a

staggered T-intersection with a

speed bump, raised intersection

platform and pedestrian

refuge island. The road has

been narrowed and footpaths

widened to reduce the crossing

distance for pedestrians and

encourage slower driving in the

area, which has been reinforced

by the speed bump. St Albans

School pupils regularly use the

crossing.

Veterinary practice

Miracles do happen….

Misty is a 14 year old Rough Coated

Collie ( lassie dog) lovingly owned by

my parents. She’s never been a hugely

energetic dog but has the gentlest,

sweetest nature. She has had the odd

health issue and is currently taking

ongoing medication for arthritis of

multiple joints. She’s not a complainer

though and will still slowly walk around

my parents farm, her favourite pastime

being flushing out rabbits and doing

cattle work with my dad. Shes always

enjoyed a visit from Lola.

Very sadly late last year, Misty was

accidentally run over. My devastated

parents flew to the clinic where Steve

and our nurses immediately took

charge. Luckily they live very close. She

was remarkably alive and seemed in

minimal shock, not like my poor mum

and dad. Our nurses were fabulous – it

was like triage in a hospital ER room.

Whilst she was checked over for shock,

bleeding and fractures, the nurses were

placing an IV line in her, were pulling

bloods to check her internal organs and

organizing shock and pain medications.

I had to consult as it was a usual busy

Saturday clinic. I can tell you its very

hard to carry on as normal, when a dog

you know and love is at risk of dying

and I couldn’t be there to support my

mum and dad. I’m very thankful to my

husband Steve for arriving when he did

and taking full control of the situation.

Within 30 minutes of arriving Misty

actually looked improved. She wasn’t

wanting to stand, but her vital organs

were all confirmed fine from her

blood tests and her heart and lungs

sounded fine. She was on IV fluids and

we wanted to give her a little time on

fluids before we had to sedate and

xray her abdomen, chest and bones.

She was an incredible little patient,

never whimpering nor complaining

once. Miraculously Misty had broken

no bones – I was worried her pelvis or

worse her lower lumbar spine could

have fractured.

Misty was discharged later that night

into my parents care on a variety of

medications to ensure she was pain

free and comfortable. She certainly

wasn’t out of the woods but was better

than any of us could have believed.

She could walk, just, and was eating

and had urinated. Misty continued to

improve slowly over the coming days

becoming stronger and more mobile

but my dad had noticed what looked

like crusty scabs under her dense coat.

We discovered many of these blackened

areas and after shaving her back end it

became obvious that a large area of her

skin was “dying”, due to vascular ( blood

vessel) damage suffered at the time of

the accident.

Over the next 4 months a massive effort

was undertaken by my mum and dad

and Misty herself, to help heal these

very extensive skin wounds, comparable

to what you would see in burns victims.

The area of skin that sloughed off

initially was about 30cm by 20cm. The

wound has had to be cleaned, kept

moist and protected by bandaging for

the past 4 months. She was monitored

24/7 and kept inside a lot to protect

the bandages from slipping. Keeping

flies away was also a difficult task. She

has been so brave allowing us all to

clean and dress it for her but finally the

healing is nearly complete.

There were times when my mum wasn’t

sure we were getting anywhere and

whether we were doing the right thing

by her. She is an elderly dog and her

ongoing care required by my parents

was huge. But that aside, I could see

Misty wanted to push through and keep

going – she wasn’t ready to depart this

world. Plus she was so dearly loved by

my parents. It also helped that my mum

was a registered nurse so could easily

cope with large wounds and their care.

Give an animal time, have patience and

faith and show lots of love and miracles

can happen. Every day I thank the

higher powers that I am the one chosen

to care for all the animals.

Petrol tax for road repairs

City

Phil

on the use

of petrol tax to help

fix the city’s roads

and the importance

of diversity in the

community

Many streets and roads

in Christchurch still

require a lot more work to

bring them up to standard.

I have always had the

view that central Government

should be returning

some of the tax-take on

petrol to help fix Christchurch’s

streets.

I have never said or

supported any proposal

to have any additional tax

on petrol to help pay for

Christchurch’s earthquake

recovery. Christchurch

people have enough burdens

already and I would

not support this.

I have said that the city

has a special case for further

Government funding from

some of the petrol tax Government

already collects.

Young musician already a master

• By Bridget Rutherford

ALEXANDRA Watson doesn’t

have a favourite instrument to

play.

She plays five – and she also

sings. But the violin will be

her instrument of choice at the

National Schools’ Symphony Orchestra

of Great Britain in July.

The 15-year-old St Margaret’s

College student will be the only

young musician to perform from

outside the United Kingdom.

“It’s definitely a talking point,”

she said.

It will be the sixth year

she has taken part in the

week-long camp of rehearsals

and performances for young

musicians aged between nine

and 19.

She auditioned to join at

the age of 10 while living in

Eastbourne, West Sussex, and

has been invited back every year

since.

She has moved her way up to

the senior orchestra, which is for

musicians grade eight or above.

The orchestra will be conducted

by Richard Dickins, director

of music at London’s Imperial

College – where Alexandra

hopes to study one day.

“When I leave school I want to

study physics and music.”

Alexandra started singing and

playing the violin when she was

two.

Since then, she has also taken

up the piano, flute, chello and

harp – all of which she has

reached or is about to reach

grade eight in.

“I just kept picking them up.”

She is also part of a number of

choirs and, in her school breaks,

studies song writing and theory

at Canterbury University.

Alexandra has also been

selected for a place in the New

Zealand Symphony Orchestra

Mentoring Programme with

associate concertmaster Donald

Armstrong.

Music is not her only passion.

She also wants to work at NASA.

She has attended two space

camps in Huntsville, Alabama,

and loved them.

Alexandra and her parents

will head to the UK in July for

the orchestra camp at Malvern

College and will visit her

“It’s the experience of being in

such a high-quality orchestra,

even though it’s secondary

students, everyone is of a high

level of playing.”

•From page 1

Friends of Abberley Park group

members Maggie Andrews and

Patricia Wallace both said the

loss of green space didn’t take the

versatility of the whole park into

consideration.

Mrs Wallace said the new

proposal is not ideal but she

thinks it is as good as they’re

going to get.

There are some things

the group would like more

clarification on such as whether

the playground will extend past

the central park bench.

She said it has become hard to

get explanations around the finer

points of the proposal.

Project manager Steven Gray

said the new proposal will be put

towards the community board

before it is finalised.

At this stage construction is still

set to begin in March.

Leaflets were delivered to 1300

residents before city council

staff planned the first proposal

but Miss Andrews said it was

not made clear that this was not

a simple upgrade of existing

playground equipment but a

$150,000 upgrade and extension.

• By Julia Evans

A ST Albans business made $40

a day while cycleway upgrades

removed parking from outside

the shop.

Rutland St Dairy owner Jackson

Zhuang said he made only

20 per cent of his usual takings

over several days in February.

Mr Zhuang said the $40 daily

take would not cover wages,

rent, insurance, rates, orders for

the shop or the power bill, let

alone the mortgage on his home

and supporting his family.

A post on Facebook from Mr

Zhuang’s regular customers was

shared more than 100 times and

generated a boost in customers

over the weekend.

He said his takings were up

for a few days and he was happy

with the way the community rallied

to support local businesses.

The roadworks had moved

from directly outside the shop,

but Mr Zhuang said the afternoons

were still very quiet.

“Before 3pm is fine, but after

three we are very quiet and after

three is usually our main selling

time,” he said.

The Papanui Parallel cycleway

upgrades began outside the shop

three weeks ago as part of the

city council’s wider cycleway

In Brief

$40 a DAY: The Rutland St Dairy has only made 20 per cent of

its usual takings over several days due to work on upgrading

the Papanui Parallel cycleway.

programme and will continue

until May.

The cycleway will cut parking

to one side of Rutland St, but after

local businesses complained

to the city council, its has tried

to limit their losses.

Mr Zhuang said the city

council should be spending the

money on harder hit areas of

Christchurch like New Brighton

or the central city.

“I hope the cycleway improves

business when it’s finished, but

it’s not helping the whole community

now.”

Mr Zhuang said he wants

things to return to normal so he

can carry on doing the best by

his customers and community.

He said before the roadworks

began, Christchurch Central

MP Nicky Wagner came into

the shop and assured him work

would be completed as quickly

as possible.

Neighbouring store, Cocoa

Gifts, has also seen a drop in

walk-in customers since the

work began.

Cocoa Gifts owner Liz van

Montfort said, while it has been

very disruptive to business, she

has been supported by a very

loyal community.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

said she would look into how

many people are working on the

cycleway upgrade so they can get

it finished as soon as possible.

“It seems underdone in terms

of workers, but I’m no expert,”

she said.

The board has been in contact

with Fulton Hogan which is undertaking

the work. It has been

liaising with business owners

regularly about the effects of the

cycleway upgrade work.

HEAD OF SCHOOLS

Isleworth School principal

Jeanette Shearer has been

named leader of the new

Waimairi-iri Community of

process was conducted by a

Siblings dominate surf champs

• By Julia Evans

A YOUNG brother and sister are

taking the surf life saving scene

by storm.

At the Southern Region Junior

Championships, Samantha

Lascelles, 10, and brother

Alexander, 7, were both crowned

overall champions in their age

groups.

Between them, they won 11

medals at the recent competition

on Warrington Beach, near

Dunedin.

Selwyn House student

Samantha received six of the

medals, and Alexander, who

is a pupil at Elmwood Normal

School, won five.

Samantha has been named the

junior champion every year since

she began competing three years

ago.

The siblings compete and train

with the Sumner Surf Life Saving

Club, which came second in the

overall club rankings, losing the

top spot to Dunedin’s St Clair.

Surf Life Saving Christchurch

manager Henry Lawson said it’s

great to see juniors excelling and

the next generation of life guards

coming through.

Father Richard Lascelles said

THE CITY’S top surf life saving

clubs were pipped by St Clair

at the weekend’s Southern

Regional Championships in New

Brighton.

The venue for next month’s

New Zealand Surf Life Saving

Championships hosted more

than 260 athletes in 20 events

over four different age groups.

Extra hype surrounded the

event with the champs acting as

a prelude to the nationals, which

will be held at New Brighton on

March 16 to 19.

“It was great to see the number

of clubs that were involved this

year. The weather on Saturday

the siblings first began training

up on Onemana Beach in the

Coromandel when they were five

and three respectively.

Onemana is a dangerous

swimming beach and the surf

club there ran an excellent fitness

and training programme, which

the kids loved, he said.

While it began as something

they only did on holiday, when

Samantha began winning, they

decided she was good enough to

enter at home.

Mr Lascelles said the secret

to their success was not living

and breathing life saving – the

pair are always active and always

doing something different.

“They’re usually doing

something every day, but they

train in a variety of sports, they

don’t do 10 sessions on the same

thing,” he said.

They swim, run, play cricket,

do athletics and cross country,

as well as surf life saving in the

summer, he said.

“They love it. It’s good fun.”

Samantha and Alexander

hope to add more medals to

their collection at the surf

life saving Canterbury Junior

Championships.

was great, and Sunday definitely

added another challenge, but the

on-water conditions were still really

good for racing,” said Henry

Lawson, southern region life saving

and education manager.

South Brighton were the best

of the local clubs. However, they

were unable to retain their title,

finishing second to St Clair who

dominated the team points.

Another Boyle on the horizon

• By Gordon Findlater

THE BOYLE name is

synonymous with cricket in

Canterbury – now Matt Boyle

looks set to be the latest cab

off the rank after a blistering

summer to date.

Boyle, 14, was key with the

bat, helping St

Bede’s College

qualify for the

national finals of

the junior secondary

school boys’

competition.

Jack Boyle

Justin

Boyle

He comes from

a talented cricketing

family. His

father Justin was

a prominent firstclass

cricketer for

Canterbury in the

1980s. His uncle

David also played

for Canterbury

in the 1980s and

1990s, while his

older brother Jack made his

first-class debut for Canterbury

last year and has represented the

province at least half a dozen

times.

Now the year 10 student top

scored with 65 as St Bede’s

defeated Christchurch Boys’

High School by three wickets in

the regional final last week. They

will now head to the national

tournament in Palmerston

North next month.

Boyle recently picked up the

year 9 batting award at the

Christchurch Metro Cricket

youth awards after scoring 613

runs at an average of 153 in his

first year at high school.

He has since earned a spot

in the St Bede’s first XI and

recently scored his first century

for the team.

His maiden first XI century

came in the school’s traditional

game against Sacred Heart College

in Auckland. He went in to

bat with the score at 30/5 and

went on to score 110 not out.

He has a way to go to catch

a school record held by older

brother, Jack, who scored a record

10 first XI centuries during

his time at St Bede’s. However,

Jack’s confident his younger

brother can go on to eclipse him.

“He’s still got four years ahead

of him; I definitely didn’t score

any as a year 10. I’d imagine he

will go on to pass that before he

finishes,” said Jack.

Their father Justin, who is

rector at St Bede’s, is the first XI

batting coach and believes Matt

Boyle can carry on the family

tradition of playing first-class

cricket.

“Jack’s first century was at

the beginning of year 12, so as

long as Matt keeps his feet on

the ground he could do it,” said

Justin.

While he may have plenty of

time to chase down his brother’s

record, Boyle and the St Bede’s

junior team will have their eyes

set on a national title when the

junior secondary school boys’

competition tournament begins

on March 27.

PROMISING: Matt Boyle

received a batting award at

this month’s Christchurch

Metro Cricket youth awards. ​

CGHS row to

under-19 title

NATIONALS: The top Christchurch Girls’ High School

coxed four team won the under-19 title at the New

Zealand Rowing Championships in Twizel. Laura

Pinnell, Grace Loveridge, Emily Nicholson-Sell,

Georgia Sevier and Georgia Scott (coxswain) won

their heat and earned the top qualifying time going

into the final. In the big race, CGHS pushed off the

starting blocks in first position with Columba College

from Dunedin close behind the whole race. They

held out Columba, ultimately winning the final by just

one second. The crew went on to finish third at the

weekend’s Canterbury junior regatta at Ashburton’s

Lake Hood. They finished behind St Margaret’s

College and Rangi Ruru Girls’ School. The crew will

now turn their attention to the South Island secondary

school champs on March 11 to 12.

New after-hours service

provides flexibility for patients

A new after-hours medical service has

been launched in Christchurch with the

aim of providing a better and more readily

accessible service for patients outside

normal medical centre hours.

Dr Martin Seers, a GP at the Selwyn

Medical Centre in Selwyn Street, says a

group of GPs are testing this new model for

out-of-hours medical service that enables

people to book a specific time to see a

doctor, rather than having to sit in an afterhours

waiting room.

He says anyone seeking medical assistance

after hours should first call their own GP’s

phone number, from where they will be

connected to the Home Care Medical line.

As with the Health Line phone service, a

nurse will ask a set of questions to ascertain

whether the person needs to see a doctor,

and if not the nurse will advise on how the

person can take care of themself at home.

Should they need to see a doctor they

then go online to the website AfterhoursGP.

co.nz, answer a few simple questions, then

book an appointment at a time that suits.

“This a totally new model and it’s not

available anywhere else in Canterbury,” Dr

Seers says.

“It saves people money by providing selfcare

advice for those who don’t need to see

a GP, and for those who do, it doesn’t waste

their time.”

The service is currently run out of

Selwyn Street Medical Centre, which is

conveniently located just off Brougham

St, but the service is set up to be venue

agnostic, so patients in future could be

seen in any of the medical centres involved

in the service, Dr Seers says. A key point of

difference from the traditional after-hours

surgery system is that it gives people the

flexibility of choosing their appointment

time.

“It’s much more comfortable for people

to wait at home until their appointment

time, rather than sitting in a waiting room

with other unwell people, and not knowing

when they will be seen.

“Another point of difference is that

the service is designed as an ultralow

bureaucracy system with minimal

overheads. Using the facilities of existing,

fully equipped medical centres means it’s

free or less expensive,” Dr Seers says.

The service is available Monday to

Friday from 6pm-11pm and on weekends

and public holidays as required. It is free

for under-13 year-olds and $73 for most

adults, which is cheaper than other afterhours

services in Christchurch. For non-

New Zealand residents the cost is $95.

space. Truly a dream come true for the

Add to this a sheltered extremely private

swimming pool for these hot summer days

screen. The only problem you may have is

getting your friends to leave!

Upstairs on the top level a purpose

access is easy to off street parking for up

to 3 or 4 cars with a large double internal

Peter and Kathryn Hampton

A New Year brings new decisions and choices.

2017 has started with many people choosing to

move homes, buy a car or organise another holiday.

Peter Hampton

Licensed Sales Consultant

Kathryn Hampton

Licensed Sales Consultant

We make important choices throughout our life; what schools our

children will go to, what food we eat, what friends we have, where

to go on holiday, and the values we instil in our children. Two of the

biggest choices we have to make are; where we live and when to

sell and buy. A crucial component of the process is selecting the

right licensed real estate agent to guide you through the mountain

of information and industry jargon. An agent can assist in the

important task of identifying the right buyer for your house, as well

as understanding your unique requirements and make your next

dream home a reality. It takes great negotiation and sales skills

teamed with effective target marketing to deliver the very best

results. Kathryn and Peter can offer you an exceptional real estate

experience. Working as a team we collectively together want to

achieve the very best results and the best outcome. Give us a call

today, we would really like to hear from you.

Client Comments

We sold our house in Strowan Road. We were fortunate that we listed with experienced local agents Peter and Kathryn Hampton to perform this task on

our behalf. We were very impressed by Peter and Kathryn’s knowledge of the local area. The Marketing campaign which fitted in with our budget suggested

by Peter and Kathryn attrached a large number of people to the Open Home viewings. Throughout the three weeks sales period, Peter and Kathryn’s

communication and buyer feedback was invaluable and greatly appreciated. Their professional attitude and honesty gave us confidence to trust his decisions.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Peter and Kathryn Hampton to anybody looking at selling their house.

Brian and Maryanne

Many thanks Peter and Kathryn for doing such a great job in selling our house. We appreciated your knowledge of the local market, your ability to listen, your

calm demeanours and your straight forward and clear communication (without any annoying jargon!) The selling price was above our expectations and that

was down to your hard work and experience. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.

Cherry

I listed my three bedroomed villa with Peter and Kathryn Hampton, and have been extremely happy with the process and outcome. Their local knowledge and

past experience with other properties in the area proved to be invaluable to help convince buyers that ‘this was one of them.’ From the outset, I was determined

to find an agent that was realistic with market value, knew their stuff and would not tell me what they thought I wanted to hear. Coupled with a close working

relationship, as well as the ever important sale, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.
