Anger over parking proposal

Meeting draws

support from

politicians

• By Julia Evans

BUSINESSES IN Fendalton

fear for their future after being

presented with a city council

plan that would reduce parking

outside their shops.

Elizabeth Fry, owner of The

Cook Shop, organised a petition

of 336 signatures, which

prompted an on-site meeting between

Ilam MP Gerry Brownlee,

city councillor Jamie Gough and

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board chairman

David Cartwright.

The concern for Mrs Fry and

the other shops on the corner of

Holmwood Rd and Rossall St,

including Le Panier, Holmwood

Dairy, Flowers on Holmwood

and The Preservatory Café and

Delicatessen, is that they would

lose their walk-in customer base.

“It’ll kill us . . . the reality is

it’s putting all these businesses

in real danger of having to close

their doors,” Mrs Fry said.

She said she regularly hears

from customers that the only

reason they stopped was because

there was a park free.

Gilles Thébault, owner of the

adjacent shop Le Panier, said he

would have to shut up because

it would create another “dead

corner” in the city.

The proposal includes a pedestrian

island and curb expansion

on Rossall St and no stopping

restrictions around the corner on

to Holmwood Rd. The purpose is

to address speeding drivers and

pedestrian safety.

Mr Brownlee said he, Cr

Gough and Mr Cartwright were

“all on the same page.”

After the meeting, Cr Gough

said he was confident that “common

sense” would prevail.

Mr Cartwright said it was

good to get on the ground and

see for themselves how it would

affect the shops and help come

up with a remedy. But he said

they needed to be sensible and

realistic.

“It’s a busy corner, but it’s not

broken so we don’t need to fix it.

There are examples in the city

that are much worse,” he said.

Mr Cartwright and Cr Gough

will take the businesses concerns

back to the community board.

THERE’S AN amazing sports

Cotswold Primary School pupil

Matthew Growcott has become

the top squash player for his age

Seeded fifth, he beat the more

fancied contenders including the

top seed 3-0 at the championships

in Auckland and if he continues

You have to sympathise with

business owners when Big Brother

That’s the situation currently

Bid to trespass lake vandals

• By Julia Evans

THE CITY council is looking

into ways of preventing

vandalism at a Harewood

reserve.

City council staff and the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board want to

trespass the

vandals, who have

been using angle

grinders, winches

and bolt cutters

to gain entry

to the area

David

Cartwright

around Lake Roto

Kohatu.

After costing

ratepayers more

than $15,000 over three months,

the community board does

not want to spend more

money cleaning up around the

lake.

Chairman David Cartwright

said after receiving a memo

from city council staff, the

community board is now

working on preventative

measures, considering the

serious nature and cost of the

vandalism.

“Are park rangers trained or

skilled enough to deal with this?

And if not, there must be a skill

RESERVE: Those responsible for vandalising the area around Lake Roto Kohatu may be

trespassed by the city council.

set or training programme they

can use,” he said.

City council operations

manager regional parks Kay

Holder said city council staff

will be working with the board

on improving security at the

access ways.

She said that if it were

appropriate, park rangers could

trespass vandals from the

reserve.

Mr Cartwright said that the

park rangers and members

of the public know who the

offending vandals were so they

should be trespassed at least.

“If these people are

vandalising, we need to trespass

(them) and . . . we do know who

they are,” he said.

Ms Holder confirmed that at

least $15,000 had been spent in

the summer season.

She said that included the

repair and replacement of

damaged facilities as a result

of people driving vehicles on

garden beds and grassed

areas, and removing signs,

fences and bollards.

“The incidents seem to be

prevalent during fine

summer evenings,” Ms Holder

said.

“However, given the high use

of (the) park . . . for walking,

dog exercising, jet skiing, water

polo, fishing, sailing, etc, the

antisocial behaviour is done by

the minority but can have high

impact,” she said.

In Brief

BOOKARAMA SUCCESS

Sales from the Rotary Club

of Bishopdale Burnside’s

Bookarama made 16 per cent

more than the previous year, but

the club would not disclose the

exact figure, member Lindsay

Crossen said. He said the event’s

success was a result of donations

of good quality books from

people in the north-west. Over

the next 12 months, the money

will be used to support the

community.

NEW YOUTH MANAGER

A new manager has been

appointed to 24-7 YouthWork,

based at Burnside High School.

The organisation aims to

connect young people with

mentors and role models.

Josh Olds has taken over from

previous manager Paul Holmes.

A luncheon was held recently to

farewell Mr Holmes.

Veterinary practice

OUR VISIT TO UC

DAVIS, CALIFORNIA

Steve, Isaac and myself recently spent time

at UC Davis, the #1 Veterinary school in the

world. For 2 years running it has received

this huge accolade and when you are

there you can see why. It operates and is

the size of a mini CHCH Public hospital.

They are a teaching hospital as well as

seeing referral patients and first opinion

clients. Their specialities include 24/7

emergency and critical care, cardiology,

neurology, ophthalmology,

oncology and surgery. They

were originally set up to

see 5500 patients per year,

last year they saw 50,000

patients. Everyone was so

friendly and helpful and

enthusiastic about being

part of this college. It had a

wonderful vibe... Isaac was

hooked.

Approximately 140 students

get accepted yearly in to

Davis, with around 10% being

male. It cost about US$45,000

for tuition( $64000 NZL)

and then there is living costs on top of

that. Vet students on average come out

owing US $135,000. These students have

spent the previous 4 years obtaining an

excellent undergraduate degree just to

get accepted, majoring in science and

maths. There are 30 colleges of Veterinary

Medicine in the US and each year about

3000 students get accepted. About 40%

of students who apply get accepted

somewhere. In your 3rd year you start to

branch off in your area of interest – either

companion animal, equine, mixed practice

or production animals.

After their 4 year degree at Davis, most

will apply for 1-2 year internship at another

Veterinary College to further their skills

in an area they are interested in. Davis

don’t offer internships. Our freshman

(first year) guide loves dentistry so her

plans are to become a specialist in this

field. After her internship, she then needs

to apply for a residency at one of the 30

colleges, which could be anything from

3-5 years more study!! These are hard to

come by, and you have to be the best of

the bunch, although a Vet degree from

UC Davis stands you in good steed. So to

be a specialist in your field in the US takes

between 13-15 years, and the debt these

students accrue is massive, a few get

scholarships, but most have to pay. I met a

vet in her 40’s who still has a student loan.

Steve spent 2 days tagging along with

ophthalmology specialists, residents and

students on rotation. First and second

year students get at least 2 weeks of

ophthalmology per year ( 27 years ago

when I studied at Massey, 1 day was

dedicated to “eyes”). He really enjoyed the

collegial discussions on cases, sussing out

all the latest equipment, chatting to the

students and doing rounds with them.

Steve came away pleased with his skills

and

expertise in

ophthalmology,

although a

few pieces of

equipment caught

his eye.

Isaac and I

thoroughly

enjoyed our 3 hour tour of the

entire faculty. Isaac loved the exotics

hospital where they house and treat the

reptiles, birds, rabbits, turtles etc. We

also visited their raptor centre, home to

rescued birds of prey that can no longer

see or fly. He also enjoyed watching elbow

arthroscopy on a Golden Retriever from a

viewing room. He could see them cutting

and sucking out torn cartilage from the

video screen. What amazed me was the

amount of people in theatre – 9 in all,

including the chief surgeon, 2 residents,

3 anesthetists and 4th year students.

There were so many people milling

around keenly observing. They do MRI

and CT here and even have a massive

MRI machine that can fit a horse into.

The most expensive patient to date was

a spoodle who underwent dialysis for 18

months, visiting the hospital twice weekly

to have all the toxins removed from her

blood. Her final account was US$140,000!

The most expensive piece of equipment

is a linear accelerator used for radiation

treatment for cancer patients costing a

little over 1 million. Apparently one of the

only surgical procedures NOT performed

here at Davis is renal transplants as when

attempted on cats over 10 years ago,

the survival rate was poor. A handful of

colleges perform renal transplants in cats

including the Pennsylvania and Georgia

College of Vet medicine.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent

at Davis and I thought how amazing,

fun and expensive it would be to be a

student now studying vet medicine at

UC Davis. The students we met were just

so absorbed, very happy and grateful to

be at this world class faculty. I came out

thinking I am so in the right profession.

by a retirement village in Papanui.

Across Australia and New Zealand, 31

Ryman Healthcare retirement villages

Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village hosted

the record attempt, with fitness guru

Nicki Brown leading the session.

Black Fern Kendra Cocksedge and Ryman

managing director Simon Challies

were at the Papanui event.

Mr Challies said the aim was to preserve

residents’ independence, reduce

the risks of falls and get them to try new

things.

However, he had no idea the classes

would be so popular.

“It was a bit off the wall, introducing

circuit classes with swiss balls, weights

about her

dealing with grief at a

young age

When I was 16 my Mum

passed away from cancer – this

is a sentence that I still get anxious

saying or typing even four

years later.

It’s the point in a conversation

that will cut all upbeat to the

ground.

I generally just tell people and

then reassure them that not

knowing what to say is normal.

From the age of 16 I’ve had to

teach myself how to cope with

dealing with grief.

With the sadness of it, the

spontaneity of it and the knowing

it’s something I have to face

every day.

Dealing with grief at any age

is horrible, but as a teenager and

young person it has been especially

hard.

Thankfully, though, along the

way I’ve gained the help from

CanTeen through their offspring

group and youth workers.

MATT DOOCEY

MP FOR WAIMAKARIRI

I have been given so many opportunities

to meet other youth

who are affected by cancer.

To most people CanTeen is

seen as a resource to patients but

it is so much more then that and

I am so lucky to have them.

They have been the introducer

of so many other young people

who are going through the

same or similar situations with

cancer.

Having the release of having

people who can relate to

what you are going through as

a young person is more then

incredible.

It can make the most overwhelming

of days feel better

by having people who actually

understand what you are going

through.

CanTeen has become such

a big part of my life that I am

shaving my head to raise funds

and give back to the Canterbury

branch.

My main purpose for this

head shave is to raise awareness

about what CanTeen do and to

be able to open up about my own

experiences dealing with grief.

Keep cooking under

control in the kitchen

• Mark Thomas, fire risk

management officer

I KNOW I’ve repeated the advice

about looking when cooking

dozens of times over the years

and it looks very much like it’s

never going to cease completely.

But every now and then I

despair a bit.

Like on Wednesday when

within three-and-a-half-hours

fire trucks responded to three

different cooking incidents.

A house completely filled with

smoke from a forgotten pie in

the microwave in Sockburn was

followed by a pot on the stove,

again filling the house in Kotare

St and a further incident in

Bryndwr where smoke inhalation

was the result for the elderly

occupants.

Any of these could have been

much worse.

A life or a house gone.

But all of them were preventable.

Stay in the kitchen.

The smell of burning in your

home can be frightening for

anyone.

More so if you’re blind.

Proudly NZ owned and

operated by cost caring women

The occupant of a house in

Addington thankfully did the

exact right thing, again on

Wednesday, by phoning 111

and having the local crew there

within minutes.

Turned out to be a tea towel

smouldering on an element.

The potential here was a bit

frightening.

I’ve not mentioned arson here

for a long time.

It’s still occurring but the

removal of most of the empty

houses in the red zone has made

it less visible or newsworthy.

A drum of diesel spread along

the road in the early hours last

Sunday in Wigram was lit and

left by whatever morons thought

it was clever.

They’re still out there. As stupid

and dangerous as ever.

Triathlete in NZ squad

SPORTS

NOR’WEST NEWS

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER ST Andrew’s College

triathlete Ari Graham will test

herself against the world’s best

after being named in the New

Zealand team to compete at the

ITU world championships in the

Netherlands.

Graham, 18, is the only Canterbury

athlete in the team of

six juniors (under-19) who will

compete in September.

The Southshore resident will

be joined by Hannah Knighton,

Waikato/Tauranga, Ainsley

Thorpe, Trent Dodds, Dan Hoy,

Auckland, and Janus Staufenberg,

Wanaka.

Mark Elliott, Triathlon New

Zealand’s high performance

director, is excited by the talent

being demonstrated in this team.

“The selected athletes span

across the country from the top

of Auckland to the deep south in

Wanaka,” said Elliott.

“It’s exciting to see the depth

of the athletes coming from

different parts of the country,

as well as the coaches who are

guiding our current and future

champions.”

Over the summer, Graham

competed in the national junior

series, which is contested between

the top under-19-year-olds

in the country over five events.

Graham not only won the

series, she took out all five

events.

She is also a former age group

middle distance and cross country

champion.

After competing in a couple of

school triathlons, she made the

decision late last year to dedicate

her time to triathlon.

She is currently training fulltime

after finishing school.

SQUAD: Ari Graham (middle) will be joined by Ainsley Thorpe

and Hannah Knighton in the New Zealand junior triathlon team. ​

The junior squad is the first of

three New Zealand teams to be

announced with the under-23s

and elite squad selections to be

made in early August.

The world championships will

take place in Rotterdam from

September 14-17.

DEFENDING champions

Christchurch Boys’ High School

have gone to the top of the UC

Championship following their

44-8 bonus point win over

Burnside High School.

After two rounds of competition,

CBHS is one of only three

teams with two wins since

Timaru Boys’ High School and

Nelson College also recorded

victories.

CBHS and Timaru will meet

next Tuesday in what could give

an early gauge of who the competition

favourites will be.

“They had a good young side

last year and they’ve had a great

start to this season, so I think it’s

going to be a really competitive

match,” said CBHS assistant

coach Rob Smith.

Meanwhile, St Bede’s College

bounced back after their opening

round shock loss to Lincoln

Combined, accounting for Marlborough

Boys’ College 38-14.

After an opening round bye,

St Andrew’s College got their

campaign off to the perfect start

with a 52-19 bonus point win

over Roncalli Combined.

St Andrew’s face a tough task

next weekend when they make

the journey north to take on

Marlborough BC.

“Especially at home they’re

always going to be tough. They

have it tough most weeks having

to travel south,” said St Andrew’s

assistant coach Mike Johnston.

Jacob Douglas will take on

the world’s best in October

when he takes the next

step towards his dream of

driving in formula one.

Jacob, 11, started racing

three years ago and has

now secured his spot at

the International Rok Cup

finals in Italy by dominating

at the KartSport NZ

national sprint championships

in Invercargill.

He won the vortex mini

rok class, taking out his

heat races before going on

to win the final by more

than four seconds.

“The competition was

pretty stiff down there

with a lot of good drivers,”

said Jacob.

He previously raced motorbikes

but after spending

a day at the track with his

father in 2014, decided it

was time to sell the bike

after finding his passion

for driving on four wheels.

Trained by Matthew

Hamilton of WKS Kartstore

and Tiffany Chittenden,

Jacob is a boy who

wants to go places. He lives

and breathes motor racing

and is passionate about

making his mark on the

world stage.

Cotswold’s squash sensation

WINNER: Matthew Growcott, of Cotswold School, won

gold in the under-11 boys section at the Oceania Squash

Championships in Auckland. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

COTSWOLD PRIMARY School

pupil Matthew Growcott has

continued his winning ways,

taking gold in the under-11

section of the Oceania Squash

Championships recently.

The tournament was held

at the Henderson Squash

Club, Auckland, and attracted

more than 200 entries across

the age groups, with players

from Australia, China, French

Polynesia, Hong Kong, New

Caledonia and Singapore making

it a truly international event.

Matthew, who was seeded fifth

in the tournament, had to play

his first match in the main draw

against top seed, Oliver Dunbar,

of Wellington, who he beat 3-0.

His next match was against

fourth seed Australian, Aryan

Madan, where his fitness showed

over the Australian, winning 3-1.

In the final, he played sixth

seed Reece Holmes, of Hawera,

where he was more focused and

consistent than his opponent,

winning the title 3-0.

An exciting prospect for the

young Cantabrian is that he

is still eligible for next year’s

under-11 Oceania Squash

Championships in Australia.

It is the second squash

tournament he has won this year,

after winning the Squashways

junior grade in March.

He is coached by John Brown

weekly on a one-on-one basis

and is also part of Brown’s highperformance

development squad.

His main goals for the rest

of the season include winning

the Canterbury age groups title

in Blenheim, South Island age

groups in Oamaru, and the

New Zealand age groups at his

home squash club, Burnside, in

October.

Matthew is the youngest player

to secure sponsorship from Head

NZ this year, which supply his

rackets, bags, shoes, strings, grips

and apparel.

ST ANDREW’S College’s Sam

Jenkins has been selected for the

New Zealand under-16 basketball

team.

Jenkins will travel to Perth with

the national age group squad in

July to compete in the Australian

state championships.

Jenkins, who just turned 15,

said when he found out he had

made the top squad he couldn’t

quite believe it.

“Feels really humbling, I feel

really blessed,” he said.

His week is filled playing

the game he loves, including

two trainings for the senior St

Andrew’s squad, one for the

school’s under-17 team, and two

trainings with Mark Dickel for

the Mainland Eagles, a mixture

of the best basketballers in the

South Island.

The 1.85m power forward also

has a strong perimeter game.

Jenkins said he wants to take

every opportunity that comes

along in the hope of getting into

an American college and having a

crack at the big time.

“If I had to choose an NBA

squad, I would like to play for

the Milwaukee Bucks. It’s a good

young team with a mixture of old

heads,” he said.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Professional team

key to dental centre growth

THe peOple on the team are an

integral part of the growth at St Albans

Dental Centre, with all of the dentists

dedicated to providing professional,

high-quality dental care to their patients.

Recent staff changes and additions

have seen that professionalism

underlined as the practice expands to

service the community. Dr Sarah Norton

has joined the team to replace Dr Ben

eggleston, who has relocated to Nelson.

Sarah graduated from the University of

Otago in 2010. She then worked for three

years for a large group practice on the

Gold Coast. Sarah spent three months

travelling with her husband before

settling in Christchurch.

Sarah is passionate about providing

excellent-quality dental care in a friendly

and gentle manner and the other dentists

say they feel privileged to have her on

board.

Dr Andrew paul has been locuming

while Dr Kristine Bettle is on maternity

leave and has now become a permanent

member of the team.

Andrew completed his studies at the

University of Otago in 2009 and worked

as a house surgeon in Christchurch

Hospital before moving to Australia

for four years where he worked in

both hospital and private-practice

environments. Hospital work inspired

Andrew with a special interest in oral

surgery and emergency dentistry while

his work in private practice ensures his

high level of quality general dentistry.

Andrew has a very open approach to

problem solving and is seen as an asset to

the team.

New hygienist, Victoria Ryan, has

replaced Katy Monk who has relocated

to Auckland. Victoria graduated from

University of Otago in 2014 with a

Bachelor of Oral Health. Before joining

our team, Victoria worked as a dental

therapist in Dunedin.

For any concerns, questions or

to make an appointment at St Albans

Dental Centre please call (03) 355 9380

and they will be happy to help with any

dental health enquiry.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

New and quality used tyres

for most makes & models

If you need new tyres for your vehicle,

JCM Direct is the place to go.

This family-run, independent tyre

business in Birmingham Drive specialises

in new and quality second-hand tyres.

The business is owned by husband and

wife Athol and Julie Hurst, with Julie being

the one who runs the day-to-day operation

and fits the tyres for customers, which is

unusual in the male-dominated industry,

she says.

They stock a large selection of new tyres

from a wide range of suppliers to suit your

wheelbarrow, car, van, 4wd or trailer.

“There are very few brands we can’t do,”

Julie says.

“We also have an excellent selection of

quality second-hand 4WD tyres.

Other services JCM Direct offers include

puncture repairs, supply and fitting of

new and second-hand alloy wheels, wheel

alignments, replacement factory steel

rims, rim repairs and lights.

“We also specialise in old rims, from the

1930s to the 1970s, which people purchase

for caravans and old trailers. The modern

rims won’t fit those,” Julie says.

“JCM Direct also do a lot of matching

rims and tyres, so customers don’t have to

buy a complete new set if only one needs

replacing.”

We can create packages to accommodate

all budgets, with finance available via Q

Card or Farmers Card.

JCM Direct is now in a new location,

on the corner of Birmingham Drive and

Hands Road. Their former premises were

further along Hands Road.

Opening hours are Monday to Friday

9.30am-5pm and Saturday 9.30am-1pm.

Three great danceworks. One great show.

Episode 31 • Tuplet • Cacti

Isaac Theatre Royal 9 – 10 June

CHOREOGRAPHY BY ALEXANDER EKMAN

BOOK NOW rnzb.org.nz


Prepare yourself for an electrifying night out as the RNZB presents not one,

but three razor-sharp works by Alexander Ekman, performed together for

the first time. A highlight of the RNZB’s 2016 Speed of Light programme;

don’t miss this opportunity to experience Ekman’s exuberant, complex

rhythms and witty, stylish staging.

Tuplet

Tuplet, for just six dancers, is the most intimate

of the three works, riffing off the split-second

precision of contemporary ballet dancers at

the top of their game. Created for Cedar Lake

Contemporary Ballet, it premiered in New York in

2012.

Video and set design / Alexander Ekman

Costume design / Nancy Haeyung Bae

Lighting design / Amith Chandrashaker

Music / Mikael Karlsson, Victor Feldman, Bart Howard

Episode 31

Episode 31 is larger in scale, a torrent of youthful

vigour harnessing the energy of New York City.

Made for the Senior Graduation Class at The

Juilliard School, it premiered in New York in 2011.

Katie

Hurst-Saxton

Born and trained in

Christchurch, Katie

Hurst-Saxton was

offered a contract with

RNZB at just 16 years of

age, the youngest-ever

full time member to join

the company. Here she

talks about preparing to

dance Three by Ekman

at the Isaac Theatre

Royal.

“From the very first moment

I started learning the Ekman

repertoire, I fell in love with it! It’s like nothing I’ve ever danced

before in my 15 year career. What I love most about the Ekman style

is the rhythms we get to make, with both our bodies and our voices.

All three works are to such ‘feel good’ music and have a quirky sense

of humour, so you can’t help but enjoy yourself while you’re dancing.

Watch the RNZB take Class on Stage

The RNZB invites teachers and their students to observe their national

ballet company taking class. These close-up encounters act as a

fantastic refresher as well as a learning tool for teachers, and provide

a source of inspiration and motivation for students. Don’t miss this

unique opportunity to watch the full company in action during their

daily class, which will take place on stage in the stunning setting of the

Isaac Theatre Royal.

Saturday 10 June 2017, 11am2

Duration of class is 1hr 15 mins

Cost $10 per ticket

Suitable for all dance teachers, dance students aged 9 or older and

accompanying adult.

Booking essential at rnzb.org.nz/classsonstage

Performing in my hometown always brings a bag of mixed emotions.

On the one hand I get extremely excited to be performing in the

stunningly beautiful Isaac Theatre Royal, which feels so normal,

so right, and is almost comforting to me. But on the other hand I

know the majority of the dance world in Christchurch, which makes

me nervous, because I want to perform perfectly for them and

make them proud. When you know that certain people are in the

audience, it brings a nervous tension to your dancing – which can

often make for a better show!

I can’t wait to be back in Christchurch with the Royal New Zealand

Ballet’s Three By Ekman. Make sure you book your tickets for a night

of fist pumping, high energy fun!”

A special thank you to our Christchurch-based sponsors and supporters, including:


Three great danceworks. One great show.

A cheeky effervescence, an

irrepressible energy and a

beguiling wit.
