THe “temporary island” was installed on Wednesday to mitigate traffic issues, city council manager planning and delivery transport Lynette Ellis said. It comes after Nor’West News revealed local businesses were concerned congestion at the junction, which has been causing rat-running, was a crash waiting to happen. Bailies Bar and Restaurant coowner Richard Norton was concerned about a crash occurring due to drivers driving through the car park outside his business to avoid the congestion. He said it was too soon to see any results from the city council’s solution. But he was glad it had “done something.” Ms Ellis said the “interim changes” have been put in place SOLUTION: These cones have created the temporary fix to the Colombo St and Edgeware Rd congestion problems. ​ to ensure cars drive over the intersection detectors on Colombo St and trigger the lights to change. Congestion issues have been caused by motorists not approaching the intersection properly, Ms Ellis said. Motorists are pulling up too far to the left of the intersection, confusing car parking with a left turning lane. •Turn to page 5 Blenheim 03 579 5353 West Coast 03 768 5528 Ashburton 03 307 8949 Halswell 03 322 4326 Fendalton 03 351 3535 Rangiora 03 310 7355 0800 333 606 www.houseofhearing.co.nz Don’t compromise on looks.

2 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday August 29 2017 Inside FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK News......................................3, 6 COINCIDENCE, or a bit of a shove from Nor’West News? I’m referring to our lead story on page 1 today over the Colombo St/ Edgeware Rd congestion. Last week we highlighted the problem and the confusion motorists were having with the lanes; confusion that meant the sensors were not picking up when the lights needed to change. That was caused by vehicles being driven to the wrong place at the intersection. Bar owner Richard Norton became frustrated with the even more frustrated drivers who have been taking shortcuts through his car park to avoid queuing at the intersection. But lo and behold there has been a development. Bollards have been installed which now force vehicles to the correct position at the intersection. Problem over, we hope. – Barry Clarke Shirley schools get planting SCHOOLS 8 NOR’WEST NEWS Local Views.................4-5 Schools..............................8, 11 Sport..................................12 Events.......................................16 Health................................18 Food...........................................19 GET IN TOUCH General Inquiries Ph 379-7100 Classified Advertising Ph 379-1100 The Christchurch Star Company Ltd.

NOR’WEST NEWS Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday August 29 2017 3 News Going out with colour and style Learn how to decorate your coffin • By Julia Evans DONNA Sutherland is on a mission to help people celebrate their lives. The Bishopdale-based graphic designer will soon be hosting weekly classes for people to decorate their own coffins from a new container at the MeNZ Shed site on Kendal Ave. It may sound like a morbid job, but Ms Sutherland said it’s about giving a “personal touch” to an otherwise sad occasion. She said it’s actually quite a soothing task. Rotorua Coffin Club chairwoman Katie Williams will travel to Christchurch to officially open the workshop container in the coming months. “We’ve just finished painting [the container], so we’re not far from finishing it all off,” Ms Sutherland said. But the hope is that, like the MeNZ Shed, the classes will bring people together. Ms Sutherland said it will be a great space for anyone who wants to come along and join in. At the moment, she offers the service privately and freely to people who purchase caskets from the Bishopdale MeNZ Shed. “I’ve just come from a funeral where the daughter wanted me to paint her mother’s coffin bright poppy red. It was her mother’s favourite colour,” she said. She said it was “gorgeous” and brought the room to life. Ms Sutherland said she’d recently been down to Oamaru to help a woman decorate the casket of her husband, a Catalina pilot in World War 2, who had passed away. “The coffin was air force blue and we decorated it with images of the Catalina he’d flown and medals he’d won,” she said. There is no limit to what you can have on your coffin, she said. “It acts like a memory board.” CELEBRATE: Donna Sutherland will be running classes to help people decorate their own coffins. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Bishopdale MeNZ Shed co-ordinator Richard Rendle said he is looking forward to seeing the groups in the container. “It’ll be great to get people in there decorating their own coffins,” Mr Rendle said. The MeNZ Shed make and sell coffins with all profits going towards Ms Sutherland’s other project, angel boxes, which are caskets for babies. “It all comes together to help keep funding the angel boxes,” she said.

4 Tuesday August 29 2017 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Your Local Views Supporting women to succeed Founder of the Christchurch Women’s Toastmasters Club, which meets weekly at St Paul’s Anglican Church in Papanui, Sheila Hailstone writes about the importance of inspiring confidence in women When Annette King finally bowed out of the Labour Party after 33 years, she said it was not good enough that women only make up 31 per cent of the MPs and that all political parties need to commit to making Parliament truly a House of Representatives. It is not only in this area of leadership women are underrepresented. Women make up over 60 per cent of university graduates with a post graduate or honours degree. However, they can only be found in 20 per cent of senior management positions and only 17 per cent of private sector boards. It’s not that women of any age lack the skills or obvious intelligence to put themselves forward for leadership positions but they may need support and confidence to take up the challenge. Christchurch Women’s Toastmasters, which meets weekly in Harewood Rd, has a phrase ‘supporting women to succeed’. In this club, women can gain both the speaking skills and leadership skills to take on any challenge. The group has attracted women from many walks of life and has a truly international feel as women of many different cultures find their speaking voice. The women in this club have used their skills to train business people in public speaking and the funds gained have been used to help pay the training fees for those members on a tight budget. Members have credited the club with helping them gain work, confidence, management positions and there is even one elderly member who believed it helped them recover from a stroke. For women, it is important to not allow the noise of other’s opinions to drown out their own voice. Women should follow their hearts, and if they want to gain confidence to do so they can and should be supported by other women. The Christchurch Women’s Toastmasters is a great place to start. Then maybe in my lifetime we will see women take up 50 per cent of the seats in Parliament and 50 per cent of the places on private sector and Governmental boards. Readers of Nor’West News react to the upgrades at Merivale Mall and the departure of long term tenant Paper Plus Carolyn Moffat – I’m appalled to see how this mall treats its long term tenants. The mall owners obviously have no respect for their tenants, and only want to fill up the mall with chain stores, so that it becomes like every other mall around town. Might as well shop elsewhere now at a bigger mall, as this mall is fast becoming irrelevant. Paper Plus will be sorely missed, just as the florist was, when it closed down. Catherine Small – Paper Plus is the only reason I went to Merivale Mall . . . it’s The Tannery for me now. Sandra Wright-Taylor – So sad about the way Paper Plus has been treated. The staff are knowledgeable, helpful and provide a very different range of products than Whitcoulls. I found that it stocked books that others didn’t. It was the drawcard store at the mall. No need to shop there now. Jason Thomas – Without a doubt, tenants excluded, the NOR’WEST NEWS ‘mall’ is one of the worst in the country. Karene Smith – There seems to be a trend with mall upgrades shifting out clients who have supported them for many years. Who have paid good rents and served the public well. No loyalty. I am hoping now that the inner-city shall gain these shop owners and will be supported by their previous clientele in the new environment. We have now the opportunity to have a vibrant inner-city shopping experience. Parking buildings have easy access. Connon Bray – Poor choices from the decisionmakers at Merivale Mall and AMP Capital. With retail under pressure and Amazon on your doorstep, you may have wanted to think about the impact of disrupting shopper habits and loyalty. your one stop shop!

NOR’WEST NEWS Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday August 29 2017 5 Chris Mugford – I hope the new tenants enjoy the privilege of paying for the new mall upgrades especially as they watch the customer car park empty out as the customers look for good service and uniqueness elsewhere. Jane Macarthy – Why is everyone surprised? It’s all about money people. The mall has always being about itself and it’s not really. Mall . . . more like the location. Josh Hurrell – Would take a pretty big revamp to ever make that place relevant. Tracey Tyler – Very sad to see Paper Plus leaving. It’s a great store with lovely staff. Keely Raines – Yet another mall to make it unaffordable for the hard working locally owned family business and give the space to another corporate, disgusting. Pamela Neil – About time. It is very boring and quite expensive. I used to live in a lovely house at 124 Aikmans Rd when I went to Elmwood Normal School – now part of the mall car park. Anthony McBride – This is why I don’t shop at malls. Liz Ball – The mall owners are greedy as Paper Plus is such a nice shop and I will be saddened to see it go. Anne Marie Smulders – I like Paper Plus and always go there when I visit my family in Merivale. Such a shame it has to go. Musician earns $5000 award from foundation A YOUNG pianist who lost his father in the February 22, 2011, earthquake is among those who have been recognised for outstanding musicianship. Bradley Wood, along with conductor Vincent Hardaker received Dame Malvina Major Foundation Christchurch Arts Excellence Awards worth $5000. Wood’s father, Murray, was one of 115 people killed in the CTV building collapse in the earthquake. Murray Wood was CTV’s managing director, chairman of the Music Centre and heavily •From page 1 “Adjacent to the traffic lane, the cycleway construction incorporated four car parks outside the businesses on the corner to provide customer car parking in close proximity,” Ms Ellis said. So the bollards were put in to stop cars pulling up there. If the bollards prove to address congestion problems, the city council will look to keep it there permanently, Ms Ellis said. “The city council will monitor the intersection and will look to make the island permanent if the involved in the city’s music scene. After studying at Christ’s College, Bradley went on to achieve first-class honours in classical performance at the University of Auckland. He said he felt honoured to receive an award from the foundation. “The foundation’s generosity affords young musicians the opportunity to venture out into the wider musical world,” Bradley said. He will use the funds to study towards a Master’s in Piano Performance at the Royal College of Music in London. Solution to intersection problem current issues are resolved,” she said. She said the bollards were the only practical solution as it isn’t plausible to put wider detectors across the intersection. “It is not possible to put in wider detection loops, as they would be under the car parks and this would cause the traffic signals to extend the Colombo St green phase when a car was parked,” she said. Ms Ellis said in turn, that would cause congestion on Edgeware Rd. •Intersection audit, p6 In Brief HOUSING PLAN The Cranford Regeneration Plan, which will allow 370 new houses to be built near Papanui and St Albans, has been approved. Gerry Brownlee, acting as the Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration, approved the plan which rezones around 50ha of former farmland around Grassmere St and Croziers Rd for residential development.

6 Tuesday August 29 2017 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi News NOR’WEST NEWS Pedestrian island for Gardiners Rd • By Julia Evans PUPIL SAFETY is being prioritised with proposed road upgrades in Bishopdale. The city council is looking to install a new pedestrian island on Gardiners Rd, near the intersection with Fairford St. City council staff said it is a popular crossing location for pupils and their families from nearby Cotswold School. “To support the students and families from Cotswold School and the surrounding area, a new pedestrian refuge would make this part of Gardiners Rd a safer place to cross,” staff said. However, some on-street parking around the corner of Gardiners Rd and Fairford St, adjacent to where the island will go, will have to be removed. And tactile pavers will also be installed outside 52 and 53 Gardiners Rd to assist pedestrians who are visually impaired. A tree outside 53 Gardiners Rd will also have to be removed. •You can have your say on these plans on the city council’s website until September 8. Dangerous intersection audit • By Julia Evans TRAFFIC SIGNALS at a contentious Harewood intersection are one step closer to getting the green light. But first, the Harewood, Gardiners and Breens Rd junction will be scrutinised during a city council safety assessment. As part of the city council’s Annual Plan process, funding was included for a full corridor assessment of Harewood Rd from Johns Rd to Greers Rd. That audit will be carried out before Christmas, city council manager planning and delivery transport Lynette Ellis said. “It needs to be completed in conjunction with an assessment of Greers Rd, and Sawyers Arms Rd. It is due to start prior to Christmas,” Ms Ellis said. And Mayor Lianne Dalziel said there would be funding set aside for an upgrade, including lights, if the safety audit proved they were necessary. But city councillor Aaron Keown, who has been calling for the upgrade, remains sceptical. “If the audit comes back and says an upgrade is not necessary, I would never trust safety audits DANGEROUS: Residents have been lobbying to get the Harewood, Gardiners and Breens Rd intersection upgraded for “decades” to avoid crashes like the one earlier this month.​ again,” Cr Keown said. He said he will be interested to see how the audit is conducted. “I just hope it’s not only a traffic count, we also need to look at driver behaviour in the area and take into consideration people rat-running and pulling dangerous U-turns, Cr Keown said. It comes after a recent collision at the intersection, which is the second in a matter of months. After the crash, Cr Keown said he rushed out and spoke to the police officer in attendance. “The policeman told me he’d been trying to get lights at this REWARD: City councillor Aaron Keown offered $100 to anyone who could name an intersection without lights that was more dangerous. intersection for years as well,” he said. Cr Keown has been lobbying for the upgrade for more than a year and locals for even longer. “They [residents] have been asking for lights for decades, since Pat Harrow was a city councillor,” he said. It was the crux of the campaign that saw him re-elected to the city council last year and he offered a reward of $100 for anyone that could locate a more dangerous intersection in the city.

Bands from Heaton, Cobham and Breens intermediate schools and Waimairi School were among those to take the stage on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. Radio Mayhem, of Heaton, won awards, including rocking drummer, best female vocalist, and they were second overall with their covers of Green Day and the Foo Fighters. Two pupils from Breens also picked up individual awards – Billie Nuku for musicianship and Dylan Smart for best male vocalist. Bandquest is the pupils version of the Smokefreerockquest. Founder and director Glenn Common said the competition is a vehicle to develop young talent. “Very often Bandquest is the first experience on a fully set up stage for these bands, with a light show and professionally mixed sound,” he said. “With six years of these young bands feeding into Smokefreerockquest, we can see how this encouragement helps students to progress musically, with all the benefits that brings in high school, both socially and academically.” POP: The Unknown from Heaton Normal Intermediate.

It is the second year the competition has been run and Rangi Ruru will be looking to win back-to-back titles at Cowles Stadium at 5.45pm, while CGHS will want to avenge last year’s loss. A narrow 61-59 win against St Andrew’s College at Middleton Grange booked Rangi Ruru a spot in the final.

Syme slotted into first-five after playing the semi-final at fullback and, within the first half hour, repaid the coaches very well against Middleton last week,” she said. She said Rangi are up for the challenge. CGHS had a tight 64-62 win against Middleton Grange at Middleton. CGHS coach Phil Burns is in his final year of coaching the side and said the level of basketball being played is the faith with two chip kicks to set up tries in both corners. He said “luck of the bounce” and great support play meant the kicks came off. The 12-3 half-time lead was extended with another Syme penalty in the 42nd-minute, before Timaru hit back with a converted try of their own from a lineout drive making the score 15-10 with 20min to play.

Burns said his team is one of the tallest in the competition so he is “confident they can compete at both ends”. Syme shines as CBHS win UC Champs 62nd-minute from about 45m on the angle, and the confident left boot did not fail. Even though Timaru needed two scoring plays to snatch victory, Syme said he knew they would have to defend hard as they were capable of coming back. CBHS held on to win their second consecutive title and their 10th in 17 years of the competition. Mixed Two Emma milburn & JacquElinE morrEn Little River Gallery will be presenting works by two artists, Emma Milburn and Jacqueline Morren in their new exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ from this Saturday September 2nd. They are bringing together different geographical cultures, using different media and materials, both with a strong environmental focus from the manmade and natural world. Their work is fabricated by using old traditional techniques yet with a contemporary edge. Emma Milburn’s paintings depict elements that are influenced by the natural environment of remote and isolated South Island wilderness areas and her interaction within this. As a Wilderness Search Dog handler and Visual Tracker, Emma is acutely tuned in to analyse detail along with the ‘big picture’. Colour, shape, shine, shadow, contours,movement and texture influence Emma’s abstract painting style. ”The juxtaposition between my experiences of wilderness, and an urban environment of playing and writing music also bring an awareness of the interaction between space, time and repetition.” ‘Monowai’ original painting by Emma Milburn from the exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ at Little River Gallery from September 2nd For Jacqueline Morren this body of work is a new direction. She sets herself a big challenge to sculpt without training or access to technical tools. At times this has resulted in her having to create her own implements, to aid the stretching & curving of the silver out of one piece, without the use of soldering. Jacqueline Morren’s fine silver and Pounamu jug ‘Punctuated Equilibrium’ from the exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ at Little River Gallery from September 2nd “Maker’s marks are left intentionally; I have no inclination towards smooth perfection. I love discovering the magical combination of metals & Jade until it feels right, usually after a long process. This enables the wonderful greenstone to come to life, to its fullest potential.” The artwork is layered with era’s bygone, present and anticipated future innovation. The exhibition is running from 2nd until 27th September.

2 NOR’WEST [Edition NEWS datE] Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday August 29 2017 15 RYMAN HEALTHCARE The Diana Isaac Retirement Village bowling green sees a lot of friendly competition. Independent living a lifestyle choice with many benefits The beautifully appointed Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Mairehau offers accommodation ranging from independent living in townhouses and apartments, to assisted living in serviced apartments, right through to resthome, hospital and dementia care. For residents who choose the independent living option, it is a lifestyle choice that offers a combination of benefits. These are, the independence of having their own apartment or townhouse while at the same time enjoying the wide range of facilities and activities the village offers whenever they wish to, the company and friendship of the other residents, a safe and secure environment, and having staff on hand to provide assistance if needed. The range of entertainment and social activities include regular live music, happy hour, outings to restaurants and shopping centres, and movies in the village theatre; while the all-weather bowling green, the heated pool and gym, petanque area and croquet green offer plenty of opportunities for companionship and physical activity. For quieter times, there is the well-stocked library, plus there is a hair and beauty salon and a small shop for essentials. Like all Ryman Healthcare villages, Diana Isaac offers what are known as the Ryman differences, which further set them apart. These include their resident friendly terms – the Peace of Mind Guarantees. There is also a generator on site as backup in the event of a power cut, wifi and emergency call alarms. Diana Isaac Retirement Village also enjoys close connections with the community. It is affiliated to around eight local clubs and groups and offers its facilities for club meetings and get-togethers. Book clubs, Probus groups and gardening groups are among those that take advantage of the village facilities, with some residents belonging to the various groups and taking part in the meetings. Residents enjoying the exclusive Ryman Triple A exercise classes. Hoko and Glenda Ria relaxing in their comfortable townhouse lounge. “It’s our home” For new residents at Diana Isaac, Glenda and Hokowhitu Ria, there is one word that sums up how they feel about their new place of residence – brilliant. The couple moved in to their independent townhouse on June 19 this year, though it was a move Hoko had been thinking about since 2000. He had seen a number of his friends’ wives being left in difficult circumstances after their husbands had died, and he wanted to ensure Glenda would have security in that situation. They lived in Cranford Street for 21 years and Northwood for a further 16 years, but for some time Hoko hadn’t been too sure about making the next move. However, when they started to look at retirement villages they soon decided it would be a Ryman village for them, and it would be Diana Isaac. Hoko loves gardening, and when he first visited Diana Isaac, the gardens were all in bloom. “It was amazing. It filled me with love,” he says. But he still wasn’t ready, though Glenda was impatient to get there. They discussed it with sales advisor Adrienne Todd, who explained the benefits they would have by living at Diana Isaac, including the fixed weekly fee*, which they liked. Hoko said, “Keep talking, I’m enjoying what I’m hearing.” He finally made the decision, and both he and Glenda say as soon as they moved in, they felt welcome, and very secure, which was important to them. “We also liked it that everything is provided,” says Glenda. “You can be as sociable as you want to be.” Glenda says she is usually a very shy person, but doing things with the other residents, “brings you out of yourself ”. “The village manager and the activities co-ordinator, they get you involved. You do things you might never have done before. We are busier now than we were before.” The two went on a village outing for a meal at the Two Fat Possums restaurant in West Melton, which they thoroughly enjoyed. They also enjoyed the Fine Dining evening at the village, which is a regular event with the food being the chef ’s choice. “That was brilliant,” says Hoko. Both he and Glenda are thrilled with all the members of the Diana Isaac team, describing them as “very caring people”. “This is not just a village as such,” says Glenda. “It’s our home, and it’s felt like home since day one. I’ve never been so happy as I am here. This is what we have worked for all our life – it’s time to sit back and enjoy it.” Available now Diana Isaac Retirement Village currently has a lovely two-bedroom townhouse and an apartment available. Anyone interested is welcome to contact sales advisor Adrienne Todd on 385 3518 to arrange a viewing and to stay for lunch to try out their popular new Delicious menu. *Terms and conditions apply Two bedroom townhouse available now Enjoy your own modern home with resort-style facilities right on your doorstep!
