Further

fears

after

wheelie

bin fire

• By Andrew King

ANOTHER WHEELIE bin has

been set alight in Burnside fuelling

further fears for residents’ safety.

For the past three months bins on

the street and on driveways, near

houses, have been deliberately set on

fire in the Burnside, Bryndwr and

Ilam areas.

The latest arson was on Memorial

Ave, near the intersection of Greers

Rd, at about 3.30am on Saturday.

Police are following up the incident.

Last Saturday, six wheelie bins

were set alight with Detective

Sergeant Mike Freeman urging the

perpetrator to talk to them before

anyone is seriously hurt.

“Police are treating the incidents

as arson and believe they are linked

to previous wheelie bin fires in the

area,” Detective Sergeant Freeman

said.

The previous four attacks were

in May but there had been a period

of at least a month where there had

been no fires.

Residents in the area have also

been told by police to keep their

wheelie bins out of sight.

THERE’S A great appeal

starting at your local

Countdown supermarket next

month.

And if you look at our front

page photo today you will understand

why.

The annual Countdown Kids

Hospital Appeal starts early next

month and every dollar that goes

into it helps children like eightyear-old

Jacob Matua.

The tremendous smile Jacob

had for the camera belies the

perilous situation he – and many

others like him – are in.

Each year, Countdown supermarkets

run an appeal to help

provide equipment for patients

using Christchurch Hospital’s

paediatric and neo-natal services.

And the good news is: Jacob is

doing well.

Dad’s punt wins Crusader visit

In Brief

• By Julia Evans

MICHAEL STIRLING is

officially the coolest parent.

At least in the eyes of the

pupils from St Joseph’s School

in Papanui who received a visit

from Crusaders players.

Mr Stirling won a special visit

from players David Havili, Pete

Samu and Seta Tamanivalu as

part of the Placemakers Punt for

Prizes competition.

During round eight of the

Super Rugby competition, he

correctly picked all seven of the

games and was put into a final

draw – which he won.

“It was a bit of sharp shooting,”

he said.

So he nominated his daughter

Taylor’s school to receive the

visit.

“The younger ones appreciate

the players, they look up to them

as heroes,” Mr Stirling said.

The Crusaders hosted a mini

coaching Elmwood session as well as dishing

out a few autographs and a

selfie or two.

Which more than paid off.

“I’ve been told she’s pretty

good at tackling now,” Mr Stirling

said.

Placemakers Canterbury marketing

manager James Munro

said the company is thrilled to

be able to offer such unique and

memorable prizes to rugby fans.

IDOL: Pete Samu signing a

father won the Placemakers

Punt for Prizes.

“To see the excitement on the

kids’ faces at St Joseph’s was really

special and I know they will

be talking about the visit to their

mates for a very long time,” Mr

Munro said.

GRAFFITI IN ST ALBANS

St Albans has gone from having

the highest number of graffiti

incidents in the city to the fourth

highest, according to the latest

city council data. Earlier in the

year, it featured alongside the

central city as the worst-hit

suburb. However, during May

in St Albans, there were 56

incidents, down from more

than 100 in March and 70 in

April. The highest number of

graffiti incidents during May

were recorded in the central city,

Linwood and Sydenham.

LIBRARY OPENING

The new Bishopdale Library and

Community Service Centre will

be officially opened at 9.30am

on Saturday, July 22. There will

be a welcoming and kapa haka

from Breens Intermediate and

OCCASION: The St Andrew’s Preparatory School kapa haka group perform at the ceremony to bless the school’s new

sculpture.

School sculpture blessed in ceremony

• By Julia Evans

ST ANDREW’S College

celebrated its centenary in

March.

And now the school has

forever marked the occasion

with the installation of a new

centennial sculpture, The

Cross He Never Knew, created

by internationally-renowned

artist, Angus Muir.

It was gifted to St Andrew’s

by the Muir family – as Angus

and his two brothers, William

and Andrew are old collegians.

Muir is now the creative

director of the collaborative

studio Angus Muir Design,

based in Auckland but has

worked on projects both locally

and internationally.

His work is largely created

using light and mirror.

The sculpture stands in

pride of place outside the college’s

iconic Strowan House.

It was blessed by the school’s

chaplain Paul Morrow, alongside

a performance from the

school’s kapa haka group last

week.

The Cross He Never Knew is

a phrase from the school song

and is intended, like the work

itself, to provoke reflection.

It references the Scottish

Saltire flag – long held as

emblematic of the college and

its heritage.

But it also strikes a contemporary

salute to the past 100

years while signalling the college’s

bright future.

Countdown to supermarket

Countdown‘s upcoming

appeal will help provide

equipment for patients

using Christchurch

Hospital’s paediatric

and neo-natal services.

Sarla Donovan visited

cancer sufferer, eightyear-old

Jacob Matua,

who benefits from the

equipment

JACOB MATUA has visited this

place many times.

He’s in the Children’s Haematology

and Oncology Centre

in the Riverside building at

Christchurch Hospital, where’s

he’s hooked up to an infusion

pump dispensing the medicine

he needs. It’ll be 10pm before

this day’s treatment is over.

After the eight-year-old started

getting “headaches and tummy

pain, neck pain, arm pain,” at the

end of last year, a cancer diagnosis

followed, along with nearly

three months in hospital, getting

treatment.

Now he comes in for shorter

stays – four days this time – and

is crossing his fingers that he

can return to his Clyde Rd home

tomorrow.

Jacob’s not well enough to

attend his school, Burnside

Primary, at the moment. He

couldn’t even eat his birthday

chocolate cake in May: “Because

sometimes I don’t eat,” he said.

Charge nurse manager Chrissy

Bond lightens the mood: “I wish

I could say that!”

The nurses play cards with

him, including memory and

skip bo. Lucy Stephenson, who

is supervising today, says he’s

quite the card shark. “I win every

time,” Jacob says with a grin.

His aunt Ula Faamoe sits with

him, too, giving his mum – who

has four other children including

twin three-year-old’s – a break.

She says he’s well at the moment:

“The best I’ve seen him

since starting the chemotherapy.

He’s making great progress.”

Beside his bed, a tall pump

stand holds all kinds of medicines

and beeping equipment.

The $5000 stand is one of four

in the centre, purchased with

money from the Countdown

Kids Hospital Appeal in 2013.

Mrs Bond said it holds five to

six pumps and keeps the medicines

stable, as well as allowing

nurses to easily read information

on screens attached to the

pumps. “DHBs find equipment

like this hard to fund, because

we can ‘make do’ with inferior

(devices). It isn’t essential, but

it just makes everybody’s life

easier,” she said.

teary-eyed departure

• By Julia Evans

RETIRING AFTER 23 years as

principal of Belfast School could

be summed up in one sentence

says Peter Simpson: “It was

hard.”

“Leaving the kids and families

that have been part of my life for

so long, it was difficult from that

perspective,” he said.

But now he’s taking on a new

challenge and passing some of

the knowledge he’s picked up

during his time at Belfast to new

principals as a leadership advisor.

“It’s a chance to give something

back,” he said. Although

it’ll never replace being around

school community.

He said he had to go back to

visit shortly after leaving because

he missed the kids so much.

On his “very emotional” last

day, the school planted a Mr

Simpson tree and sang To Sir,

with Love.

That brought a tear to my eye,

he said. It was a bittersweet moment.

“But I couldn’t have done any

of it without the people around

me. It’s not a job that you can do

on your own,” Mr Simpson said.

It was that sense of community

that grew in Belfast over the 23

years that he said was the highlight.

“Probably one of the best

things is the acceptance by the

wider community that Belfast is

a good school,” he said.

When Mr Simpson started,

the school was 80 per cent New

Zealand European, he said.

LAST SPEECH: Peter Simpson

addressing the Belfast School

assembly for the last time. ​

But when he left, there were

more than 15 different ethnic

groups.

“I think that just represents

New Zealand as a whole,” he

said.

“The school motto is ‘care,

share, learn, grow’ and seeing

that acted out through the kids

and tolerance of difference was

great. They accept the kids as

they were and wrapped their

arms around them like a family.”

He said the fact that new

classes and school blocks had to

be built, alongside a change in

school culture and growing rolls,

proved his time at the school was

a success.

“I absolutely loved my time at

Belfast,” Mr Simpson said.

On July 24, the school will hold

its first mihi whakatau to welcome

new principal Sue Elley.

Mrs Elley joined the school

after being the assistant principal

at Hornby High School.

Stop the sale of state houses

Nae Nae

Higgs writes

about state

house sales

I am a state

house tenant,

weighing in on

the debate about

state house sales.

Yes, I hear the groans – here

we go, another state-awarded

wanna-have-it-all about to give us

all a lecture on what we are doing

wrong as a society – but hear me

out.

Looking at this idea of sellingoff

state houses, I have been

working on this for a while now:

going to every meeting, trying

to stand up scream out – “I am

a state tenant, I am your most

vulnerable.”

I have done this over and over,

but while I do this, the Government

has dangled more carrots to

make it look better for us.

Is it really better for us?

With our houses falling down

around us, we would try all

we could to engage with those

responsible.

Our cries fell on deaf ears, with

replies of: ‘‘We cannot afford to

fix your home.” “If we streamline

and put HNZ with the Ministry

of Social Development we may be

able to work more efficiently,” and

now: “We shall sell some of these

houses on to another provider

and see if that works.”

All we have now is a broken

system, a greedy Government

and huge profits to be made and

lost, with us as the product.

To quieten our voices there

is a new carrot, in the form of

the provider who will build 150

houses for the state.

So let’s just say

this new provider

buys the 2500

houses.

Seems like they

can do whatever

they would like with

them, so long as

they build one for one state

house. They can demolish one

house, put up six and make profit

off five, with only one of them

being state-owned.

We were not told anything

more, except what a good job

they have done.

A good job at scaring their

people, giving misinformation,

leaving us to rot while they decide

what will give them the best

profit, and worse, becoming more

of a nanny state deciding what is

best for us.

A lot of us waited months for

the most basic of human needs

and also living with what one

could only describe as a harassment

that is wrapped up in an

idea we can’t look after ourselves.

If we look hard at the idea of

selling these houses we will realise

it is a no-brainer, they must be

kept in our hands, we need more

not less.

We need the Government to fix

their systems not sell half of their

assets.

We as HNZ tenants are not trying

to be greedy, we are not stating

we want to keep our houses

because they are ours. They

are not, they are the country’s

houses, they are the safe places

for all New Zealanders.

I want this sale stopped.

TRAFFIC: Red light runners at this Cranford and Berwick St

Readers respond to the

article about red light

runners at the intersection

of Cranford and Berwick St

Diane Dick – I travel around

Christchurch daily and witness

this all the time. In some cases

they need to put up more right

turning green arrows to make

a lot more intersections safer.

However, the rude people who

keep coming when the lights

have changed make it even more

unsafe for those turning. Compulsory

stops are another hairraising

area. Only two or three

cars actually stop properly, the

rest slow down and treat them

like a give way. Good on you

for making a stand on this. It’s

so obvious why our road toll is

going up.

Shane Fisher – Montreal

St and Bealey Ave. People forever

running red lights on both

roads. I’ve seen a lot of close

calls. Bring back the red light

cameras. It’ll cost thousands to

put in place but those costs will

be retained after only about six

months use.

Christopher Ford –

Hmmm, tickets really work. I

remember they were giving out

tickets 49 years back and they

still need to do it so it doesn’t

work just take the bloody driving

rights away. That will get a

better result.

William Hutson – It is

because the light signals are not

geared towards left turn priority.

The timings need to be changed

and adjusted. People only really

run reds because they literally

won’t be able to turn right legally.

Where have the signs gone?

Chairman of the Papanui

Heritage Group Murray

Williams writes about

disappearing signs in the

domain

The genesis of Papanui was the

native bush that once straggled

across a block of land that covered

parts of Rural Sections 3,

5 and 25, an aggregated area of

200 acres bounded by Langdons

and Vagues Rds although the

bush probably accounted for less

than half of this.

The native forest was cut out

by 1857 and in the early 1880s

six and a half acres of this land,

with a frontage on Sawyers Arms

Rd, was developed as a domain,

Papanui’s first public park.

In 1960, historian Jim Gardner

was keen to spark some interest

in the early days of Papanui.

At this time he was chairman

of the Canterbury Regional

committee of the National Historic

Places Trust (now Heritage

New Zealand).

In association with the city

council he organised a sign on

the Sawyers Arms Rd frontage of

the Papanui Domain.

The noticeboard featured a

map of the area and a brief narrative

of the milling of the bush

in the 1850s.

Analysis of a contemporary

Domain in 1997. (From left) – Mollie Chalklen, Dave Hinman,

Gardner.

photograph suggests that the

sign was of a significant size,

probably at least 2m in height.

This sign has been removed.

It is not known when or by

whom, but it had possibly been

vandalised.

In 1997, Jim Gardner assisted

by local historian Mollie Chalklen,

convinced the city council

and the Historic Places Trust to

organise a replacement.

The result was the Papanui

Bush interpretation panel.

The new structure was smaller

but sturdier.

In a letter to Mollie Chalklen

from the parks development

officer, dated July 1, 1997, it was

noted that the National Historic

Places Trust brass plaque had

been salvaged from the original

sign and that it was proposed to

incorporate it into the timber

frame of the new interpretation

panel. The photo shows the

unveiling of the new sign.

However, the structure has

since disappeared and inquiries

to the city council have proved

fruitless in establishing any

information as to its fate.

LEARN TO SWIM

The new Swimsmart

Membership is here!

The new Swimsmart membership

offers a new approach to learning to

swim. Swimsmart members will get free,

unlimited access to all Christchurch City

Council pools outside of regular lesson

times. This provides kids with extra

opportunities to practise their swimming

skills!

Customers will now be able to enrol for

a membership that offers up to 48 weeks of

lessons per year. The new membership also

allows customers to pay on a more regular

basis via direct debit instead of paying for

a full term up front.

Grading of children’s swimming skills

occurs on a regular basis, so they can move

up a level as soon as they’re ready. If there’s

no space available at that level at a suitable

time, your child will go on a waitlist and

get some advanced instruction at their

current level.

Book now to secure your child’s spot!

Call (03) 377 7690, email swimsmart@

ccc.govt.nz or visit the Swimsmart

offices at Jellie Park, Graham Condon or

Water the only way to read poem

• By Julia Evans

SAMANTHA Jory-Smart’s

literary work is now part of the

city’s history.

But her poem, A Promise, can

only be seen when it’s wet.

The Burnside High School student

was asked to write the poem

to feature on one of the central

city laneways.

The Mollett St block of the

South Frame was recently

opened by Minister supporting

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Nicky Wagner.

It features a pounamu built

into the pavement.

But it is more importantly the

home to the country’s first raining

poetry installation.

Samantha’s poem has been

printed onto the pavement in invisible

chemical spray that only

reveals itself when wet.

She said the poem came from

a mix of wanting to include

Maori culture, a tale about the

mataī tree, and create a sense of

Christchurch’s regrowth.

“It’s amazing to contribute to

Christchurch and be a part of the

rebuild,” Samantha said.

Mrs Wagner helped Samantha

unveil the poem by pouring water

from a watering can over it.

She said it was exciting Mollett

“For the first time, I suddenly get

a feeling of what the city is going to

look like,” Mrs Wagner said.

When completed in 2019, the

South Frame’s pavements and

laneways will span seven blocks

in the central city.

Further $45k signed off for Plunket rooms

• By Julia Evans

A FURTHER $45,000 has been

allocated for repairs to the

Redwood Plunket rooms.

Originally budgeted at

$30,000, the quote was then

upped to $75,000

for the rooms to be

repaired for community

use.

Papanui city

councillor Mike

Davidson said it

Mike

was a “big win” for

the Northcote and

Redwood area.

“This is not much money in

the grand scheme of what we’re

going to achieve in the community,”

Cr Davidson said.

However, Mayor Lianne Dalziel

is sceptical whether repairing

the old building is in the city

council’s best interests.

She said it was a challenge to

make the decision as the city

council was not provided with a

detailed report.

Ms Dalziel said the repairs

would only get the building to

67 per cent of the new building

standard.

“It will still be old, still be

unimproved and still be poorly

insulated. It has old services and

contains significant inherent

maintenance issues,” she said.

The building will be home to

a social worker, who is being

funded by the Papanui-Innes

Community Board. Cr Davidson

said the Plunket rooms are in an

ideal location next to the Redwood

Library.

They will also be used as a

community gathering space. A

research report from city council

staff has shown that a lot of

young people feel unsafe in local

parks around Northcote and

Redwood.

“(The area) lacks neighbourhood

space for people to come

together and the younger generations

feel unsafe in the parks

due to drugs and gang involvement

in the area,” he said.

The city council approved the

additional funding in the 2017-

Fire Service’s new look

• By Mark Thomas - specialist fire

investigator

THE NEW Zealand Fire Service

disappeared last Saturday.

It ceased to exist.

Fire and Emergency New Zealand

began life in its place.

It’s what we’ll be called into

the future.

What’s the reason?

Until now, there have effectively

been two fire services in

the country.

Those that covered urban

settlements, towns and cities,

and those that tackled mainly

wildfire in more rural settings.

To a certain extent, the

boundaries were blurred and we

generally co-operated as much

as we could.

The new Fire and Emergency

New Zealand Act combines us

into a single organisation, still

with distinct urban and rural

sides but working side by side.

It’s got to be better.

As far as most New Zealanders

go, there won’t be any change

whatsoever except the fire trucks

that respond to your emergency

might have different stickers on

the side.

For those of us in the new organisation,

there’s some learning

of new legislation but essentially

it’s business as usual.

Christchurch had a quiet week

as the change occurred. Ten people

got themselves trapped in a

lift at a city bar in the early hours

last Saturday morning. It took

about half an hour to free them.

And a fire truck was used to

hold up a severed power pole in

Barrington St after a car crash

on Sunday evening which kept

live wires off the street and power

going for Spreydon homes.

Finally, fire crews assisted ambulances

at about 10 incidents

where people suffered seizures

and died suddenly.

That’s about double a normal

week.

Connetics Shield-holders

miss national competition

• By Andrew King

BURNSIDE HIGH is ruing poor

early season form which has cost

them a spot in the nationals.

But coach David Williams is

not looking to blame outside

forces, saying it was gutting but

entirely their own fault.

Four teams were selected from

the Connetics first XI football

competition to compete at the

Boys Lotto Premier Football

Tournament in Napier from

September 4-8.

“A draw against Shirley and

letting Cashmere back into

the game, which also ended

up being a draw, didn’t help.

If either of those games had of

been a win instead of a draw,

then we would be in Napier,” he

said.

St Andrew’s College, St

Thomas, Lincoln High and

Cashmere High have all made

the cut for the 32-team national

tournament.

The teams were picked during

round eight when the top four

included the selected teams.

Burnside were fifth in round

eight, but have since moved

to third after wins against

Middleton Grange and Lincoln

High. In their match against

Lincoln, Burnside also won

College and Wellington College

snapping up the last two

spots.

“We will now focus on

trying to win the Rex Dawkins

tournament in Palmerston

North,” Williams said.

That tournament runs at the

same time as nationals.

Williams said with two games

and a bye left in the Connetics

competition, the goal is to

finish strong and hold on to the

Connetics Shield.

The competition now takes

a three-week break and will

resume on July 26 for three

rounds before the finals.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

New management

A change of scenery is how Allan

Cleghorn describes his new position as

Manager of Bridgestone Hornby.

“I want to grow our business through

consistently top rate service to all

customers,” says Allan.

While known for supplying and

fitting tyres and mag wheels, the team

at Bridgestone Hornby also service and

repair all makes and models of cars, vans,

4WDs, and fleet vehicles.

Their fully functional workshop with

the latest diagnostic scanning equipment

allows them to carry out regular vehicle

servicing from changing oil and filters,

to replacing antifreeze, topping-up brake

fluid, aligning wheels and serious vehicle

repairs. They also do Warrant of Fitness

inspections for just $40, a little cheaper

than elsewhere.

Bridgestone Hornby is close to the Hub

Hornby. Complete some shopping or have

lunch while tyre or car needs are sorted,

book their loan vehicle if heading to work,

or chill out over a fresh hot coffee in their

for local business

comfortable waiting room.

The fast, efficient and friendly service,

not to mention competitive rates and

available finance, explains why so many

customers return to Bridgestone Hornby

at 39 Carmen Road (just along from the

Hub Hornby). Call 03 349 5505 or email

hornby@tasmantyres.co.nz to make a

booking.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

New treatment for fungal nails

Feet First, the long-established podiatry

clinic in Upper Riccarton, now has a

much more efficient and effective means

of dealing with the problem of fungal

nails, thanks to a new machine they

recently obtained from Britain, where it

was designed and trialled.

Clearanail is a procedure where the

Podiatrists use a machine to make tiny

holes in the nail without affecting the nail

bed – a completely pain-free procedure

that then allows the topical application of

antifungal solution to directly reach the

problem area.

Fungal nails may cause the toenail to

thicken, which consequently can make

shoes feel uncomfortable. Anyone who

believes they have a fungal infection

of the nails is invited to make an

appointment for a consultation with Feet

First so one of the qualified Podiatrists

can assess if that is the case, and if so, will

recommend the Clearanail procedure.

This involves the initial treatment, and

three follow-up appointments at monthly

intervals to check progress.

“Fungal nail infections won’t disappear

immediately,” clinic director Charlotte

Russell says, “so people need to commit

to the process, which can take up to four

months as the nail grows.”

She says now is an ideal time to start

fungal nail treatment with Clearanail, so

nails will be looking healthy again when

the warm, sandal-wearing weather arrives.

Feet First has an introductory offer on

Clearanail until the end of July.

Call them on 348-7910 for details.

only provides support and comfort, but

58 Hinau Street, Fendalton

Price by negotiation

3 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 2 car-garage | Listing # SMT10143

Situated in the heart of this popular part

of the city, this renovator’s delight may be

the best excuse you have to purchase in

this prime location. Encompassing three

bedrooms and one bathroom, generous

off street parking, a sunny north facing

family sized section plus master bedroom

complimented by an outdoor deck.

sun-soaked decking area is an entertainer’s

delight with manicured lawns.

Double garaging, drive through and a

generous driveway with plenty of off-street

parking complete the package.

Andrews’, underpinning your investment

and the proximity to the Westfield and the

Market - not to mention cafes, parks and

key public transport routes - ensuring you’ll

want for nothing.
