Protester

puts away

placard

as work

restarts

A day out

in the mud

Elmwood Normal School pupil Jonty

Johnson, 7, scrambled his way through the

mud at last week’s Muddy Good Run. The

children’s course was 1.5km of running

through muddy pits, down slippery slides

and over hay bales.

• By Julia Evans

A MAN protesting road works,

which he says will narrow

the street too much and limit

access, has packed in his

placard.

Murray Turley stood out in

the rain for two days on the

corner of Grassmere St and

Main North Rd protesting

about a “killer bulge” that pedestrians

will use to cross Main

North Rd.

Work came to a brief pause

last week when Mr Turley stood

on the construction site and

forced Fulton Hogan to pack

up and leave.

However, after the city

council’s investigation into

Mr Turley’s concerns, work on

the pedestrian crossing access

restarted on Friday.

Papanui city councillor Mike

Davidson visited residents in

Grassmere St, including Mr

Turley, and listened to the

problems they had with the

work to come up with a solution.

As a way to ease their concerns,

Cr Davidson organised

a simulation of a truck and

boat navigating an intersection

identical to Grassmere St and

Main North Rd.

DRIVERS, PLEASE slow down

While it may be a 70km/h

Rangi Ruru’s tennis team

Principal’s plea: Stop speeding

• By Julia Evans

DRIVERS HITTING the

accelerator past Harewood

School are causing concern for

the safety of pupils.

Principal Julie

Greenwood is

pleading for

drivers to slow

down as they pass

the school, saying

Julie

Greenwood

many seem to

have a case of

“lead foot.”

When coming off Johns Rd

on to Harewood Rd, some

drivers don’t seem not to notice

the 40km/h speed limit sign,

Mrs Greenwood said.

“We’ve had a couple vehicles

go through the crossing patrol

when the signs were out.”

She said police had used

a speed gun to catch drivers

and took the issue to the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board.

The school has since been

liaising with board member

Aaron Campbell.

Mr Campbell said he and

the school have been trying to

get the speed limit outside the

school permanently reduced

during off-peak hours.

He said that is unlikely to

happen.

Outside pick-up and

drop-off times, the stretch of

road in front of the school is

70km/h. However, because

of road upgrades, it has been

50km/h for the past three

years.

Traffic engineers have said

there is not enough residential

housing in the area to justify a

permanent 50km/h speed limit.

So far the school has

upgraded the 40km/h signs to

make them more prominent to

drivers.

But Mr Campbell is worried

about the predicted increase

in traffic along Harewood Rd

due to the planned Western

Corridor.

If the school can’t get the

speed permanently decreased,

Mrs Greenwood said she wants

people to be more vigilant and

slow down.

CONCERN:

Pupil safety

is of concern

at Harewood

School with

some cars not

stopping at

the school’s

crossing.

PHOTO: GEOFF

SLOAN

“We need drivers to actually

think what if that was my child?

They need to put on that hat

and I think that would help,”

she said.

But for now, the school will

rely on its road patrol to keep

pupils are safe.

“Our road patrol does a

fabulous job, but we have to be

very vigilant – we wait a long

time before letting children

cross.”

Motorway and cycleway flaws

Papanui resident Phil Day

reflects on the current

concerns in his area – the

third lane on the Northern

Motorway and the

cycleway on Grassmere St

One wonders sometimes if city

council shares a single brain cell.

I’ve got a copy of the 1968

Northern Motorway plans,

which direct the traffic through

the Flockton Basin, linking on

to the one-way Barbadoes and

Madras Sts.

There is old Post Office

engineers land at the end of St

Albans for a park and ride building

but successive councils have

hurried to tear down the old

housing and put in new, preventing

the Northern Motorway

connecting directly with town.

It would now cost millions just

to buy up the new properties for

the old route. The new route was

probably suggested by a kindergarten.

Now, traffic coming off

the motorway will pile on to

Cranford St and all the ratruns

are being blocked so that

I reckon the journey along

Cranford St to Bealey Ave will

take 20 minutes-plus and be an

utter nightmare.

The third lane is needed for

cyclists, especially as there will

be so many more of them now so

much taxpayer money is being

spent clogging up the roads

around town.

Three cheers to John Button

and Murray Turley on their

stand against the Grassmere St

cycle path – there was

no consultation.

People of Ngaio Marsh

Retirement Village found out by

accident that the path was going

in, making the road dangerous

and killing off businesses in

Rutland St and at the Sawyers

Arms and Main North Rds

corner.

On a brighter note, I

congratulate the city council

on the much needed bypass

behind the airport just as

the Government decides we

need one at Johns Rd, which

is causing traffic problems for

Wairakei Rd businesses.

Readers respond to a

story about the Papanui-

Innes Community Board’s

objection to a third lane on

the Northern Motorway

Jonathan Holtslag – If

people could simply learn how

to drive properly on a motorway

that would be a huge help. Speed

up to 100km/h on the on-ramp,

indicate your intended lane

change, stay in the left lane

unless passing. These are all

simple things that would make

our lives a lot easier.

Dave Moore – Stupid idea.

Rail is the answer.

Brodie Champain Archer

– We need a bridge midway

between the gorge and the main

Waimakariri River Bridge.

Feed the traffic through to West

Melton, Rolleston and to the

Southern Motorway extensions.

It would totally change the

flow of traffic, allow a quick

route south, make North

Canterbury more accessible and

allow more people to work in the

industrial hubs in the industrial

zone.

Trevor Taylor – Why is it

the decision of a city council

community board? It’s a road

that’s looked after by the New

Zealand Transport Agency.

And why should Christchurch

ratepayers pay to upgrade a road

NOR’WEST NEWS

so Waimakariri ratepayers can

get to work faster?

Rich Brown – Another

bridge by the airport would be

better and more cost effective in

the long run.

Jeff Bell – Control flow. Cut

the northbound bridge to one

lane during peak hour in the

morning and feed traffic down

that over the river.

Helen Milligan – Think

ahead. Trams are the way to go.

Straight down the middle all the

way from north to the city.

Parks and rides at different

stops.

Brendon Liddicoat –

Connect Pound Rd from Main

South Rd to Oxford as a heavy

transportation route bypass.

Yes, another bridge over the

Waimakariri River but common

sense, I think.

Rare Vincentian Cross medal

for parish’s good Samaritan

• By Sarla Donovan

BEING GIVEN the rare

Vincentian Cross was an

experience “quite out of this

world” for Russell McKee.

The 86-year-old was awarded

the medal by the president of the

Society of St Vincent de Paul,

Renato Lima de Oliveria, for

his 56 years of membership and

service.

Mr McKee’s voluntary work

with St Vincent de Paul began in

1961 when the parish priest at St

Joseph’s church, Papanui, asked

for his assistance in helping the

poor and needy.

“There were lots of local people

who couldn’t manage, lots of

poor people around. Usually the

money was going on booze or

gambling,” said Mr McKee

The priest gave him a list of

regular clients to visit.

“We would take food, or

clothing, or school uniforms,

whatever the need was.”

He still drives around each

week to visit clients in need of

help. “People are poor managers,”

he said.

Mr McKee said he had never

expected such an award. He was

motivated by a desire to help

UNEXPECTED AWARD: Russell McKee, with his wife Janette,

never thought he would be awarded a special medal for his 56

years of service to the Society of St Vincent de Paul.

those less fortunate than him.

“Those who have been given

many gifts have an obligation to

share.”

His wife of 60 years, Janette, is

also a volunteer with St Vincent

de Paul.

The two met through their

involvement with Catholic

tennis and youth clubs before

marrying at St Mary’s church

in Manchester St on April 22,

1957.

With their diamond wedding

anniversary approaching later

this month, plans are afoot for a

party to mark the occasion.

“My dear wife is organising a

social at the RSA in Papanui. It’s

a busy time.”

DONE DEAL: Murray Turley has retired his placard and called it

a day on his protest after the roads works resumed.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Protester gives up

•From page 1

It was conducted on the corner

of Proctor St and Main North

Rd by city council staff who

successfully managed to get the

boat and trailer around the turn.

Cr Davidson said after

watching a video of the

simulation, he was more than

satisfied that the work should

continue.

However, Mr Turley said he is

not happy with the outcome. He

said he was under the impression

the city council was going to use

a Grassmere St resident’s truck

and boat.

Although he is disappointed,

Mr Turley has decided to pack in

his placard and said he had tried

his best.

“It’s a done deal – I’d be issued

with a trespass noticed and I’m

retired. I can’t afford any legal

stuff,” he said.

Mr Turley was angry because

he said the residents had been lied

to when told during consultation

they would have unrestricted

access in and out of Grassmere St.

“We were promised

unrestricted access in the

consultation process and I don’t

believe we’ve got that. We’ve got

restricted access.”

However, Cr Davidson said

every day work was paused would

cost the city council more money.

Mr Turley said he doesn’t want

to see the road have to be dug up

and redone later, which would be

expensive.

Students design

gadgets to help needy

• By Julia Evans

SELWYN HOUSE pupils

may have just invented some

revolutionary tools to help

paralysed people.

Pupils from year 7 had Adrienne

Coleman talk to them about

some of the difficulties she faces

because of tetraplegia.

They were tasked with designing

gadgets to help Mrs Coleman

overcome the challenges and

have developed prototypes to get

feedback on.

Although some girls made

mistakes and had disasters, there

were several inventions that particularly

stood out, said teacher

Simon Christie.

INVENTORS:

Lucy Maynard,

Emma Mason

and Xanthe

McElroy with

knives. PHOTO:

SELWYN

HOUSE ​

Mrs Coleman hadn’t used a

knife since her accident 21 years

ago until the first time she tested

the prototype made by pupils

Lucy Maynard, Emma Mason

and Xanthe McElroy.

“The knife is particularly

remarkable,” Mr Christie

said.

The girls developed a design

for the knife that has the handle

at 90 deg to the blade and incorporates

a fork on the end, so Mrs

Coleman can cut her food, stab it

and eat it.

She has used the knife to cut

and eat an apricot – something

which was impossible for her to

do before.

St Margaret’s traffic issues

• By Julia Evans

ST MARGARET’S College

is rethinking its traffic safety

measures after complaints about

speed, congestion and parking

issues.

The college’s Papanui Rd entrance

has been closed to parents

dropping off students before and

after school while it addresses

the problems.

Associate principal Chris Wyeth

said the school is making the

entrance pedestrian access only

to minimise the amount of cars

around pedestrians.

Winchester, Andover and

Shrewsbury Sts are all busy

before and after school – parents

are expected to park further

from the gates.

NOR’WEST NEWS

“Your daughters are capable of

walking along the street to meet

you by parking in a safe zone,”

Mrs Wyeth said.

The school’s entrance on

Andover St is for staff use only

so it is not an alternative place to

drop students off.

The school’s priority is creating

a safer environment for its

students.

Edible garden winners

HEALTHY EATING: Kidsfirst Northcote has won its ninth

consecutive Heart Foundation gold award for teaching children

healthy habits. ​

Healthy food earns

kindy another award

FOR THE ninth year in a

row Kidsfirst Northcote has

been recognised with a Heart

Foundation award.

It won a Healthy Heart Gold

Pā-Harakeke (flourishing)

Award, which is awarded to

kindergartens that teach healthy

eating and physical activity.

“We were the very first early

learning centre to achieve the

gold award and we are really

proud of our continuing achievements,”

Kidsfirst Northcote head

teacher, Leigh Downie said.

The kindergarten has consistently

held gold award status

since the awards started in 2010.

Bek Parry, a nutrition advisor

with the Heart Foundation

in Canterbury, said she was

impressed with the way Kidsfirst

Northcote always shoot for gold.

“They do really great work to

promote positive messages at

kindergarten around keeping

hearts healthy,” she said.

Kidsfirst Ilam has also been

working with the Heart Foundation

and in2hula to trial the

Hoop with Heart programme.

Children hula hooped to

music, participated in games and

used the hoops to act out a story.

After its success the Hoop with

Heart team rolled out the programme

in other early learning

centres around the city last week.

THE FIFTH annual Papanui-

Innes Edible Garden Awards

were held on Thursday.

The award ceremony

attracted more than 50

guests as well as elected

members from the Papanui-

Innes Community Board

and members of the

Canterbury Horticultural

Society.

This year, 48 entries were

received in the categories of

residential house, residential

unit, schools and early learning

centres and community

gardens – an increase from last

year’s total of 35.

“It was extremely pleasing

this year to see the large

number of first time entrants,

and those who have previously

entered, entering again and

remaining committed to their

gardens,” said community

board chairwoman Ali Jones,

The awards are open to any

residents who live within the

Papanui or Innes wards, and

it is hoped that in time the

awards will be held across the

city.

Special nods were also given

to a first-time entrant, best

tomatoes, best yield

and commitment to

sustainability.

The event is a partnership

between the community board

and Canterbury Horticultural

Society.

St Andrew’s teen powers

to rowing world record

SOLID EFFORT: Jade Feneon (left), Tessa McCann, Luka

Simmers, Kate Edwards and Kyla Otway capped off a fantastic

season with fifth place at the national secondary school

competition.

Rangi tennis team shows

potential in Auckland

RANGI RURU’S senior tennis

team has capped off a fantastic

season with fifth place at the

national secondary school

competition in Auckland.

The team which won the

Christchurch girls’ qualifying

tournament and came second

at the South Island secondary

school tournament fought hard

to achieve the result.

Rangi Ruru tennis convenor

Anne Bissland said the school

has not had a tennis team at the

national competition since 2015

so it was satisfying after a busy

season.

“The team spirit and hard

work paid off and the girls

only narrowly missed out

on making the top four after

some close games earlier in the

competition,” she said.

“This is a young team with

a lot of potential and we look

forward to watching their

progress over the next few

years.”

RECORD HOLDER: St Andrew’s student Seb Caulder can

boast that he has a world record in rowing at the age of 15.

• By Andrew King

ST ANDREW’S student Seb

Caulder can boast that he has a

world record in rowing at the age

of 15.

He was being tested on his

speed and strength during a

training session prior to the

Maadi Cup and managed to row

2000m in 6min 25sec, breaking

the record of 6min 28sec.

“I was in shock really. I never

thought I would ever beat a

world record,” he said.

Caulder, who lives in Prebbleton,

said the previous record was

held by a United Kingdom rower,

and he knows there will be some

others gunning to take his time

down.

“I’m sure there will be some

out there looking to beat that

time,” he said.

He was part of the school’s

contingent of rowers who competed

at the recent Maadi Cup

regatta.

He came second in the

under-16 eight and third in under-15

four.

Concept 2, a company which

manufactures the rowing machines

he set the record on, sent

Caulder a certificate to celebrate

his achievement as well as a

drink bottle and towel.

Now, with the rowing season

over, Caulder will turn his attention

to the upcoming rugby

season – he plays prop in the

under-16 school team.

He said it could be difficult to

choose which sport he will pursue

in the future as he loves both.

“It is pretty tough choosing

between rugby and rowing. They

are pretty even,” he said.

“Rowing is a lot harder fitnesswise

and you have to get up

earlier, but I enjoy it.”

Graham chases triathlon dream

DOMINANT: Ari Graham finished more than a minute clear of

the field at the Sea2Sky event.

PHOTO: SEA2SKY CHALLENGE

• By Gordon Findlater

A SUCCESSFUL background in

middle distance running looks

to have set former St Andrew’s

College triathlete Ari Graham

on a path to glory.

Graham, 18, won the recent

Sea2Sky Challenge in Sumner,

the latest of many achievements.

She competed in last year’s

national track and field championships

in Dunedin, winning

both the under-18 800m and

1500m titles. She is also a champion

cross-country runner and

has previously represented New

Zealand at secondary school

level.

After trying her hand at a

couple of school triathlons, she

made the bold move to turn her

full attention to triathlon and it’s

now paying dividends.

Graham has taken a gap year

following her final year at St Andrew’s

and is currently working

part-time, and training full-time

with the Canterbury Triathlon

Academy.

Over the summer, she competed

in the National Junior

Series, which is contested

between the top under-19s in

the country over five events.

Graham not only won the series,

she took out all five events.

“I was really shocked with

how well it went in my first

year of triathlon. Every time I

competed I wasn’t really expecting

to win. I was just excited to

compete and learn from racing,”

said Graham.

Graham has always been a

strong swimmer and runner.

She has been hard at work on

her cycling with coach Axel

Reiser to develop her technique

and bunch-riding tactics this

year.

The weeks are busy with four

pool, three run and three cycle

sessions. To keep it competitive,

she spends most of her time

training with a lot of the top

boys at the academy.

“It’s about putting her into an

environment where she’s being

pushed,” said Reiser.

He believes that Graham

shows all the signs for them to

be hopeful about her development.

However, like all young

athletes, there are a lot of factors

in the future which will determine

what she could go on to

SPORTS

achieve.

“If you look at her times and

compare that to previous Olympic

champions, then she is now

faster than them at this stage,”

said Reiser.

Graham currently competes

over the sprint distance, which

consists of a 750m swim, 20km

bike and 5km run, half the

length of the sport’s Olympic

distance. Since dedicating

her time to triathlon, she has

had the opportunity to work

alongside New Zealand’s top

female triathlete Andrea Hewitt.

They swim together under the

guidance of Roly Crichton,

who trains New Zealand’s most

successful Paralympian Sophie

Pascoe.

“I used to train with Roly at

QE II when I was younger. I’ve

always kept in touch with him

and when I finished school,

I was able to train with him

again,” said Graham.

She’s planning a month-long

campaign in Europe later this

year, which she hopes to finish

by representing New Zealand

in the junior category at the

ITU Triathlon grand final

in September in Rotterdam,

Netherlands.

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

PhysiotheraPist ietje van

stolk suggests that a major part of the

pain could be due to muscle pain rather

than simply arthritis. “even if an x-ray

shows arthritis, the reason for the pain

may be the muscles around the joint,”

she explains. The images show how

a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front

of the shoulder and a muscle knot all the

way near the groin can give an ache in

the knee (especially at night in bed).

ietje recalls one case where an 89

year old client with severe arthritis who

walked with a stick, told her, “i will

end up in a wheelchair, i cannot put

any weight through my right leg due to

pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within

4 treatments, she was walking with

her stick but without the severe pain,”

says ietje. “The arthritis was one of the

factors that made her muscles spasm but

the other was that older people move

less and the flexed position the hip is

in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could

have been “given up on” or told to live

with the pain, she made a difference to

her health and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can

be the reason for your knee pain or

your shoulder pain and the same few

treatments could make a huge difference

for you.

at Physical sense, hands-on

techniques (massage and triggerpoint

deactivation techniques) are used

to release the muscles. The client

also gets a home exercise program

designed to mobilize and stretch the

joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength

and balance. They teach a movement

sequence that stretches the joint in all

directions whilst the client is able to lie

safely on their bed, perfect for older or

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

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

less mobile clients.

in many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to

maintain it, is enough to stay on top of

the problem. if severe arthritis is the

underlying cause, some maintenance

therapy may be necessary, but that is

often more affordable and, for older

patients, better tolerated than surgery. in

very few treatments the client will know

HIP PAIN

if it is going to work for them or not,

without financial commitment.
