St Andrew’s win

tense shootout

to take title

St Andrew’s College captain Jake Neill proudly

held high school football’s Connetics Cup aloft

on Wednesday. St Andrew’s beat St Thomas in

a penalty shootout after the match was tied 3-3

at full-time. St Andrew’s came out on top 5-4 in

penalties. It provided a fitting end to what has been

described as one of the closest fought title races in

years. •Full story, page 15

North-west

suburbs

worst for

assaults on

wardens

• By Julia Evans

PARKING WARDENS appear to

be fair game in suburbs across the

north-west.

Latest statistics show of the

36 verbal and physical assaults

on parking wardens in the city,

seven were in Merivale, Redwood,

Papanui and Belfast.

And four of the seven incidents,

including one of two assaults, took

place in Merivale alone.

On April 28, a parking warden

was assaulted by the owner of the

vehicle they were issuing a ticket

on Papanui Rd outside Merivale

Mall just before noon.

The fine, for parking over the

time limit, was $21.

The offender had to have

a restorative justice meeting

with the parking warden and

apologised.

Wardens were also threatened

and verbally abused on Leinster

Rd in May and Winchester St in

August. But they were not doing

anything apart from walking

along the road.

It comes as the number of assaults

and abuse being reported

by the city’s parking wardens has

increased in the past year, in spite

of them being given body cameras

to wear.

EDITOR’S

DESK News..................................... 3-11

IT’S A tough job being a parking

warden in the north-west part of

the city as our statistics show on

page 1.

Being parking warden is a

thankless job – for obvious

reasons – and it takes a certain

kind of character to be one –

thick skin is an advantage.

But it is a job that has to be

done, otherwise no one would

care about restricted parking.

And the result of that would

be a lot of angry motorists who

wouldn’t be able to get a park.

So if you’re getting a ticket

take it on the chin instead of

trying to land one on someone

just doing their job.

Congratulations to St

Andrew’s for winning the

Connetics first XI football

competition against St Thomas

(page 15).

World-class problem solvers

• By Julia Evans

TWO CASEBROOK pupils

have proved themselves among

the top young problem solving

minds in the world.

Casebrook Intermediate

School pupils Ben Donaldson

and Bronte Perriam came back

from the e-ICON World Contest

in Busan, South Korea last week.

And with them they brought a

pair of best creativity awards.

Deputy principal Nick Leith

escorted Ben and Bronte over

to the Korean Peninsula and

said the trip was an incredible

experience.

“Both students were

heavily involved in the

creation and development of

a mobile phone app package,

including marketing and a

business proposal for further

investment,” he said.

And even though Kim Jong

Un was testing nuclear warheads

across the border, Mr Leith said

there was no evidence of a tense

political climate whatsoever.

“It’s something South Korea

has been going through for 50

years, you couldn’t even tell

anything was going on.”

He said it was the heat that got

to them more than any threat

from North Korea.

WINNERS: After working 14-hour days, Ben Donaldson (left) and Bronte Perriam won best

creativity awards with support from deputy principal Nick Leith.

Instead Ben and Bronte

worked gruelling hours with

two students from Buwon Middle

School in Incheon.

Mr Leith said they added

the creative support to the

expertise of their Korean teammates.

“They definitely had to work

for the free trip, the work ethic

across the competition was really

high,” he said.

Ben and Bronte were working

14-hour days on their app, in

34 deg C heat – although most

of the time they were too busy to

notice the heat.

“I think how hard they had to

work caught the kids off guard

the most,” he said.

But with sweltering temperatures

and swollen limbs, Mr

Leith said they were glad to be

back on New Zealand soil.

biography has been printed to

introduce his achievements to

younger generations. Written by his

niece, Philippa Reynolds, it details

the life of the writer, educator and

political activist who dedicated 60

years to humanitarian causes in

China. A copy of the biography was

presented to Chinese vice-president

Li Yuanchao at a ceremony in the

Great Hall of the People, Beijing.

CBHS will also hold a function in

December to celebrate the 120th

anniversary of Mr Alley’s birth.

CYCLEWAY CONSTRUCTION

Construction of the Northern

$100 wager ‘claimed’

Businessman and Papanui-

Innes Community Board

member John Stringer

writes about a pair of busy

Harewood intersections

City councillor Aaron Keown’s

Harewood, Gardiners and Breens

Rds intersection “issue” is simply

not a local priority.

I live a few blocks from the

intersection and have good-humouredly

“claimed’’ Cr Keown’s

$100 wager that his intersection

of Harewood, Gardiners and

Breens Rd is the busiest intersection

in Christchurch.

It clearly isn’t and I live near

Aaron’s intersection on Harewood

Rd.

But its good he’s advocating

for the locals and a simple traffic

island would solve his problem

as it has on the much busier

Harewood and Russley Rds

intersection.

Just 1km from Cr Keown’s

tame four-lane Harewood,

Gardiners and Breens Rd

intersection is the Harewood

and Russley Rd intersection,

which has 18 lanes entering and

egressing a two-lane road. And

Russley and Harewood Rd has no

lights.

It’s much more busy and would

have 20 times more traffic than

Harewood, Gardiners and Breens

Rd.

My intersection has a shopping

strip, a school, a Playcentre and

a church within 100m and the

airport on the other side.

And the only way for pedestrians

or cyclists to cross my

intersection is by literally going

underground (through a tunnel).

That beats Aaron hands-down.

But I won’t be claiming his

$100; instead I’ll be sending him

a Monopoly $100 note or if he’d

like to donate $50 of his $100

wager to a Papanui charity of my

choosing I’ll give $50 to a Harewood

charity of his choosing.

Readers of the Nor’West

News respond to the article

regarding congestion at the

intersection of Colombo St

and Edgeware Rd

Simon O’Connor – I came

across the article about the

Edgeware Rd and Colombo St

intersection and thought I’d add

something to the mix, if it’s still

topical. I’m feeling it is very topical.

Because as a result our city

has become swamped by excessive

use of road safety signage,

lights and bollards. Visually it

is noise. The quantity and usage

of vertical poles and traffic lights

is absurd and this visual noise is

fundamentally wrong. The city

sadly lost a lot of its charm six

years ago, and we are no longer

a garden city. It seems there

are more metal poles and yellow

plastic trees than gardens. We

cannot constantly facilitate the

needs of people who are cannot

think for themselves or other

road users. It is the majority of

us that actually suffer. It’s like

someone at the city council is

shareholder in these traffic safety

equipment suppliers. I drive

daily along Colombo St, turning

left on Edgware Rd, so here are

my qualified observations:

•It now takes longer as a journey,

I usually could turn left in 10

seconds, by giving way to others.

•I sit at the traffic lights for

around a minute waiting to turn

left, more greenhouse gas as I sit

in congestion.

•I sit at the traffic lights for imaginary

cyclists who have their

very own green light, but nobody

is there?

•Sometimes I have to wait for

imaginary cyclists on two repeat

instruction of the lights.

•I see about two cyclists tops

at 8.30am up Colombo St from

Bealey Ave.

•I know first-hand of a business

on the corner of Bealey Ave and

Colombo St who left her store

due to reduced customers, lack of

parking, and cycleway construction,

which took months.

Heather Wilkins – Be nice

if they could get the intersections

sorted. They may have

turning lanes but they need

their own turning lights and

the turning lanes should turn

at the same time like they do at

Blenheim Rd where you come off

the motorway, just like they do in

Australia.

ROADING: The city council installed yellow bollards at the

intersection at Colombo St and Edgeware Rd.

The light frequency needs to go

longer for the minor roads off the

main roads as sometimes you can

sit in the turning lane for four

turns of the lights and with that

the straight through sometimes

only gets one car through and it

changes again. Half a minute on

Buchanans Rd and sometimes

2min on Carmen Rd. Drivers

then may not go through a red

light.

Kelly Root – Wondered what

the green mess was for.

Christine Carr – I regularly

shop at Edgeware and cross the

intersections with my hearing

dog. We are both elderly and

slow. The problem I have is with

the maniac speedsters who

regularly try to beat the lights

LAwyERS

coming up Edgeware Rd from

Abberley Cres. With the building

of the new restaurant next to the

supermarket, foot and vehicle

traffic is bound to increase.

Hopefully the traffic lights will

help regulate the road hogs. Not

holding my breath though. A

speed camera could be useful.

Connie Kruse Christensen

– With this area being used

as a rat-run along Trafalgar

St, the traffic lights now allow

pedestrians to safely cross

Colombo St from Bailies’ offstreet

car park to St Albans

Pharmacy, and to also safely cross

Edgeware Rd to Super Value and

the new cafe opening soon. It’s

a great improvement for safety

walking between these good local

shops.

North-west parking warden assaults

•From page 1

But the city council said the

new technology has encouraged

staff to report incidents more,

because the footage provided

reliable evidence.

The 21 parking wardens were

given the body-mounted cameras

in April last year. They can

be activated if staff think their

safety is at risk.

“Our experience has shown

that the body worn cameras

have increased safety for our

staff by lessening the seriousness

of incidents and discouraging

undesirable behaviour,” city

Church rebuild delayed again after fire

• By Julia Evans

THE REBUILD of the

Bishopdale church gutted by an

arson attack last year has been

delayed by at least a year.

Demolition of the St

Margaret’s Presbyterian Church

on Farrington Ave started earlier

in the month and construction

won’t begin until at least the

middle of next year.

Reverend Andrew Nicol said

the lengthy insurance process

meant the rebuild process hit a

brick wall.

“It’s part of a long insurance

settlement process but it’s settled

now . . . the ball is rolling,” Rev

Nicol said.

He said the church was used

to long insurance processes after

the earthquakes and fire, even if

it was a little frustrating.

“It always takes longer than

you think,” he said.

In January, Nor’West News

reported the rebuild was set to

begin in the middle of the year.

Now Rev Nicol said the

timeline wasn’t clear but the

church was “optimistic” a

rebuild would begin by June

next year.

However, he said the

congregation has a more

positive outlook since it had its

decommissioning service at the

beginning of August.

REMAINS: The rebuild of St Margaret’s Presbyterian Church in Bishopdale, which was

demolished after a fire last year, has been delayed by at least a year.

“We’ve finished that process

of saying goodbye, we can move

onto the next chapter,” Rev Nicol

said.

The church is currently

working with an architect,

which is “really exciting”. The

plans will then be approved by

the congregation.

“It’s now about being

affirmative and complementary

to the renewal of the whole

area,” Rev Nicol said.

He said the church

congregation was upset after

the arson attack but the fire

had emphasised how important

the church is to the wider

community.

“There’s a good heart in

Bishopdale and now we’re just

looking to the future,” he said.

The church suffered almost

$2 million in damage when

Cheyenne Destiny Jade Reed,

a 35-year-old technician, broke

into it and started a fire in May

last year.

Reed was jailed for six years

for the arson and other charges,

including burglary, unlawful

possession of a knife, breach of

bail, receiving a computer and

theft of a car.

The congregation will

continue to meet weekly

at Isleworth School and is

currently fundraising for the

rebuild by selling cheese rolls.

Skate park

on cards for

Papanui

• By Julia Evans

A NEW skate park is in the

pipeline for Papanui.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board has asked city council

staff to begin investigations into

finding appropriate sites for a new

skate park in the area.

Staff are also investigating the

possibility of offering free wi-fi at

the park.

To use a skate park, Papanui

residents currently have to go

to either St Albans, Burnside,

Bishopdale or Belfast.

City council staff will report

back to the board on October

13 with appropriate sites and

costings for design, consultation

and construction.

The board will then look to

include this in its submission on

the city council’s Long Term Plan

later in the year.

It comes as the board is also

looking at extensions to the

skate park half pipe at St Albans

Park.

CHILDREN WILL learn valuable

gardening skills and knowledge

during the Daltons Sunflowers in

Kindergartens Project.

Seventeen Christchurch kindergartens

will compete to grow the tallest

sunflower or widest sunflower head.

Each kindergarten was sent a

Daltons starter pack with everything

the children need to grow their own

sunflowers, which have the potential

to grow up to 4m.

The children will learn how to sow

and care for seedlings as well as the

daily care of their plant.

Daltons general manager Colin

Parker is thrilled with the return of

the project this year.

“The competition aspect adds a

little extra fun to the project for the

children, but we are more focused

on creating opportunities to spark a

lifelong love of gardening.”

The competition runs until December

6, and winners will be announced

on December 8.

PART OF The Groynes is set to

be inaccessible by car.

A single-lane road bridge near

the Groynes Dr entrance needs

to be widened to allow for twoway

traffic and pedestrian access

on both sides.

During the first three to four

weeks of construction the city

council reserve will remain

open.

But the road bridge being upgraded,

which leads towards the

dog park and some picnic areas,

will be closed to vehicles.

Car access will be limited to

the south picnic area and car

park.

As part of the planned upgrade,

a culvert under the bridge

is being replaced and widened

to allow better water movement,

improve water quality and allow

fish to move more freely.

Work is expected to start on

September 11.

It has been prompted by

construction of the new Western

Belfast Bypass on Johns Rd,

which will affect traffic pressures

in the area.

Regional parks operations

manager Kay Holder said The

reserve and the upgrade

is needed to ensure it remains

“We’re confident any inconvenience

caused in the short

term will be worth it for the long

term gains,” she said.

Pedestrian entry to the dog

park and northern side of the

river will be using a footbridge

to the west or the metal swing

bridge.

That bridge has just been

repaired and re-opened after being

closed to the public since the

2011 earthquakes.

There is also access via a

walking route from Darroch St

around the Otukaikino track.

Receptionist on the way

to becoming a nurse

DEB MORRISON has always

dreamed of being a nurse.

And thanks to a workplacebased

training programme,

the Belfast receptionist is on a

mission to upskill and follow her

dreams.

Ms Morrison has worked at the

Belfast North Mediqual Doctors

for 15 years.

“I’ve always wanted to do my

training as a nurse but I never

had the opportunity to do this

when I was growing up,” she said.

“This is a journey I’ve always

wanted to take.”

Ms Morrison has just completed

an apprenticeship in primary

care practice assistance, becoming

the first apprentice to graduate

from the new programme

developed by the industry training

organisation, Careerforce.

She said the apprenticeship

has given her a newfound selfassurance

in many aspects of her

role.

“Now I find myself feeling a

lot more confident so I will give

things a go, whereas before I

would just sit back and watch,”

she said.

Her new-found skills and

confidence has also provided a

rison puts her hand up for more

responsibility in her role.

“Now my work colleagues ask

me to assist them and that makes

me feel good because I’m proving

myself, I’m trusted, and I’ve got

the skills to do it,” she said.

“And it’s helping them and the

doctors as well. I love the responsibility.”

Ms Morrison said her workplace

and colleagues have been

very supportive of her training

journey.

“I am positive my new skills

have added a lot of value to my

workplace,” she said.

TOP BALLERS: Rangi Ruru beat Christchurch Girls’ High

51-37 to claim the Whelan Trophy.

Rangi claim second

basketball title in row

• By Andrew King

Tuesday September 5 2017

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

have won back-to-back Whelan

Trophy division one titles,

beating rivals Christchurch

Girls’ High 51-37 last week.

Played at Cowles Stadium,

it was a repeat of last year’s

Canterbury secondary school

basketball final and, once

again, Rangi Ruru came out on

top.

The final score was very

different to the 74-62 final last

year, when they wrested the

trophy off CGHS.

Rangi Ruru Alice Sproat was

named MVP with nine points

and 15 rebounds. She was

backed up by Junior Tall Fern

Esra McGoldrick’s 20-points

and 17 rebounds.

Rangi Ruru director of sport

Jo Fogarty said there was a huge

crowd there supporting the girls.

“What an incredible

atmosphere. That can really

make all the difference to the

game and I have no doubt that

support played a part in Rangi’s

decisive win this year,” she said.

St Andrew’s win football title SPORTS

• By Andrew King

THE BAGPIPES rang out across

English Park as St Andrew’s won

the Connetics first XI football

competition against St Thomas

on Wednesday night after a tense

penalty shootout.

The game was played with high

intensity between two teams

who were fighting each other at

the top of the table all season. It

provided a fitting end to what

has been described as one of the

closest fought title races in years.

The title was decided by a

penalty shootout after the match

was tied 3-3 at fulltime. St

Andrew’s came out on top 5-4 on

penalties.

St Andrew’s goalkeeper Olly

Drew stopped St Thomas’ third

attempt and then St Andrew’s

striker Declan Hickford drilled

one into the back of the net to

cue the celebrations. Spectators

flooded the field to celebrate with

CHAMPIONS: St Andrew’s won the Connetics football competition 5-4 on penalties last week, while the St Andrew’s girls (below)

were beaten 3-1 by Cashmere High in their final. (Below left) St Andrew’s celebrate with the Connetics Cup.

their team.

St Andrew’s coach Matthew

Jansen said he couldn’t even

watch the shootout as St Thomas’

supporters got louder and louder.

“I just knew you couldn’t do

anything more as a coach. I told

them to have faith in themselves

and know, win or lose, we had

played the best we could and to

be proud of that. It was nervewracking,”

he said.

Jansen thanked St Thomas for

creating a great rivalry

and pushing them the whole

season.

“I want to thank our supporters

and the boys. Well done for all

your hard work and trusting the

process and each other to achieve

something you haven’t before,”

he said.

St Andrew’s were 3-1 up at

halftime, but the never-give-up

attitude of St Thomas saw them

claw their way back into the

game with two goals.

One came from a penalty

that had to be retaken after the

touchline umpire ruled the St

Andrew’s keeper had moved off

his goal line early. The victory

was quickly put to one side as

St Andrew’s kicked off their

national campaign yesterday in

Napier after qualifying for the

tournament earlier in the season.

However, St Andrew’s girls side

were defeated 3-1 by Cashmere

High in their final, while St

Bede’s won the plate final with a

2-0 win over Lincoln High.

Both of those games were also

played at English Park.

Denture specialists

expert at problem

solving for patients

Ryan Carlton and his team of expert technicians at

Dentures Plus in Innes Road are highly skilled in the

design and manufacture of flexible partial dentures.

“We also use industry-leading injection

moulding equipment for all our dentures,

Ryan says, “and we provide dentures not

only for our own patients, but also for

dentists throughout New Zealand.”

For anyone experiencing problems with

their teeth or gums Dentures Plus offers a

free consultation to assess their oral health

and possible treatment plans, Ryan says.

“People needing first-time dentures or

immediate dentures can come directly

to us and we will work with their regular

dentist or if necessary arrange with

another dentist for the extraction of their

teeth in preparation for getting dentures

fitted,” he says.

“Our team are excellent at problem

solving for our patients and providing

them with a comfortable, functional,

natural-looking solution.”

Ryan emphasises the importance of

keeping dentures clean and healthy to

avoid the damage that can occur from

wearing them. Dentures Plus offers a full

range of products for keeping dentures

in tip-top condition, including denture

cleaners, brushes and denture baths for

soaking the dentures.

He particularly recommends Caldent

denture cleaner, as it is non-abrasive and

effectively removes stains, calculus and

plaque. All the products can be purchased

at the clinic, or through the Dentures Plus

website, www.denturesplus.co.nz.

While Christmas is still a few months

away, for those people wanting to have

new dentures in time for the festive

season, now is the time to get the process

underway, Ryan says.

“By talking to us now, and getting

started, the new dentures will be settled

in and comfortable by Christmas, so you

can enjoy all the festivities without any

denture problems.”

Dentures Plus is located at 396 Innes

Road. To make an appointment to

discuss your needs, phone 385 5517.
