Funding

cut puts

future

projects

in jeopardy

• By Julia Evans

Accredited installers 10yr workmanship guarantee 6 yr warranty

A SLASH in community board

funding will see grants for local

organisations decreased or cut

altogether.

City council head of community

support governance and

partnerships Lester Wolfreys

confirmed there had been a

reduction in funding for the

Papanui-Innes Community Board.

The city council allocated

$402,860 for the 2017/18, which is

an $85,000 reduction from the previous

year, chairwoman Ali Jones

said.

The board said this will affect vulnerable

members of the community,

with many groups anxious about

their future.

“It’s extremely disappointing

. . . we’re doing it tough already,”

chief executive of the Belfast Community

Network Lynda Goodrick

said.

Mrs Goodrick said the network

could not plan for the future at all

because it wasn’t sure if it could

fund all its programmes or would

have to cut some.

“It’s awful. We’re doing the

council’s work for them, we’re

looking after their people and it’s

tough without proper funding,”

she said. •Turn to page 6

WHAT AN election it’s going to

be on Saturday night.

The best and potentially the

closest in many years, and one

which will shape the country’s

future for sometime.

Star Media, publisher of the

Nor’West News, will be following

the election on our website www.

star.kiwi and we’ll have reporters

out on the street and bringing

you latest updates through the

afternoon and into the night.

The Star on Thursday will also

have an in-depth election preview.

The polls clearly show people

have shifted to voting for either

National and Labour and this

could spell doom for many

smaller party politicians who

have made it into Parliament on

the back of MMP.

Indications are voter turnout

will be high and which ever party

mobilises its supporters best on

Saturday will win.

Council takes down signs

But residents

keep fighting

for children’s

road safety

SOLUTION: Labour candidate Duncan Webb and Rachel

Donaldson with the sign that the city council has taken down.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

• By Julia Evans

SIGNS addressing dangerous

driving in St Albans have

been removed – but frustrated

residents say the battle is not

over.

One sign on the fence of 85

Westminster St, which read “St

Albans children matter, slow

down” was taken down last

week, along with several others

in the area around Cranford St.

The removal of the signs was

ordered by the city council after

a four-week investigation found

they did not comply with the

District Plan, city council head

of regulatory compliance Tracey

Weston said.

St Albans resident and mother

Rachel Donaldson made the

signs to address dangerous driving

around St Albans School

after a pupil was clipped by a

car.

She said the city council ordered

them all to be taken down

unless she paid $1500 per sign

for resource consent.

The city council began investigating

the signs after receiving

a complaint.

“The premise of the complaint

is that the sign was offensive . .

. but who could find children’s

safety offensive?” Mrs Donaldson

said.

She said it didn’t seem fair

that one person complaining

about a traffic safety sign caused

them all to be removed, when

the whole community was crying

out for the problem to be

addressed.

“We’re doing our best, but

when a single complaint can

bring all the signs down, it’s a

real shame,” Mrs Donaldson

said.

But she said the campaign to

tackle dangerous driving in St

Albans is far from finished.

In a bid to keep the sign on

the fence, Christchurch Central

Labour candidate and former

lawyer, Duncan Webb, attached

a photo of himself, which he

said made it a political hoarding.

Dr Webb said it was “ridiculous”

that the city council

ordered the sign to be removed.

“I do know how to read the

rules and it’s clearly an election

sign, which is excluded from the

city council’s District Plan,” he

said.

Ms Weston said even after Dr

Webb’s addition, the sign was

still assessed as “non-compliant”

with the District Plan.

Although she would not say

how.

“The parties involved are now

addressing their traffic safety

concerns with the appropriate

part of the city council,” she

said.

But Dr Webb said he’d be

more than happy to help Mrs

Donaldson with any new signs.

NEW SCHOOL SIGNS

Active school signs will be installed

on Paparoa St outside Paparoa

PLAYGROUND COMPLETE

The $150,000 playground

upgrade at Abberley Park has

Merivale book shop owner

marks the end of an era

Merivale

Paper Plus

has closed

this month,

so owner

Simon Grant

has penned

a goodbye

to the loyal

customers who have

supported the business

over the years

It was with great sadness that

we closed our doors for the final

time on September 10 after being

part of the Merivale Mall family

as a Paper Plus for more than 23

years.

Unfortunately, the mall has

decided not to renew our lease,

and has instead signed up

Whitcoulls in our place.

We are all gutted and really

wanted to stay on and keep the

store locally-owned, but the mall

has decided to go in a different

direction.

We have loved being part of the

community here and I have spent

more than half my life working in

this store.

My mother and father

purchased the Merivale

Bookshop in 1994, making

the big leap to own their own

business and re-brand it into a

Paper Plus.

From there, they worked

hard to build a great store, one

that was unique and we were

enormously proud of.

We have gone through the

highs (a cue the length of the mall

to meet Richie McCaw during his

book launch) and the lows (the

sudden loss of my father in 2014),

the rise and fall of e-books, and

the thousands of earthquakes

and the associated repairs and

clean-ups.

We have enjoyed being part of

the community, donating many

prizes to school fundraisers

and local charities, and the staff

have loved chatting with all our

regular customers. We have also

supported many local authors,

stocking their books and hosting

book launches and signings.

Thank you to everyone who has

shopped with us over the past 23

years.

We will continue to look

for alternative locations in the

area, and will make a big song

and dance should we re-open

elsewhere.

In the meantime, I will relocate

to our other Paper Plus store

in The Hub Hornby along with

a couple of the Merivale staff,

where we will continue to offer

the same great range and service.

Feel free to come in and say ‘hi’

if you are over that way.

Readers respond to an

article about a proposal

by Fendalton residents

to make Rochdale St

‘residents only’. The

attempt to stop drivers

using it as a shortcut was

declined by the city council

Megan Bowie – I think I’ll

make a point of driving down

there now, every chance I get.

The arrogance is strong with this

street.

Janine Hale – How is it a

‘shortcut’ when it is a legal public

road . . . surely it’s just one of

many routes to get to a destination?

Jennie Moreton – Every

nasty comment reflects the bias

of the posters who have made

judgements about the people

living in Rochdale St – probably

without meeting any of them.

For the record, I don’t live there,

I have taken the shortcut down

that street in the past and I don’t

think any public road should be

closed to non-residents.

Daniel Thompson – How

would they police that? They’d

have needed to ask for checkpoints

at both ends of the street.

Then are the enforcers there on

rotating shifts 24/7 or would it be

accessed via some kind of swipe

card?

Stephanie Hagerty – It’s

a street not a private road. You

knew that when you bought

there.

John Bartlett – Head out to

east Christchurch and look at the

state of the roads there. Shocking

and they moan about a bit of

traffic.

Clarissa Douglas – This

street and its residents have a

lot of issues . . . If you don’t like

it move, I’m sure there’s people

out there who would love to live

there and not moan.

Jennie Moreton – What a

lot of nasty comments. If you

don’t ask, you don’t get, so why

shouldn’t they try? Didn’t work

but what’s the harm?

Chelcie Tamaira – I just

find this hilarious. Sorry. Do

they want to be like a Hollywood

gated community? It’s so funny.

city council like all the rest with

people’s taxes. And, as has been

already pointed out, how would

Pamela Neil – These people

just keep trying to change the

world. I lived in Glandovey Rd

when the neighbours were normal

people.

Hans Steinz – So why not

close the street at both ends? Okay,

“residents” would have to park

around the corner, but it would be

very quiet.

Jonathan Scott – It’s a public

road. Everyone has the legal right

to drive on it.

Helen Young – Who the hell

do they think they are? We are

ratepayers too and should be able

to use all streets in Christchurch

any time we want to.

TWO SISTERS almost broke

down in tears when they met

their WWE wrestling idol,

Dean Ambrose.

Zeinat Alebel, 18 and her

sister Sofiya, 14, would describe

themselves as wrestling

superfans.

They proved that after the

Burnside High School students

lined up from 7am at The

Hub Hornby for the chance to

meet Raw tag-team champion,

Ambrose. “My heart is racing,”

she said.

Zeinat had Ambrose sign her

cellphone, which was now one

of her favourite possessions.

After the 3pm meet and

greet, the teens went to WWE

Live at Horncastle Arena – the

only live wrestling event in the

country.

Zeinat said seeing WWE Live

was seven years in the making.

“Last time we saw them I was

11 and Sofiya was 7.”

But she said they’d both been

watching it on television for as

long as they can remember, if

not longer.

“I’ve been watching since

1999 and I was born in 1999,”

Zeinat said.

She, along with almost 300

other fans, lined up from 7am to

get the wrist bands that would

see them meet Ambrose later in

the day and get his signature.

Zeinat said she and Sofiya

went to The Hub early for the

meet and greet.

“It was so worth it,” she said.

Author set to turn pages in

Australia with second book

• By Julia Evans

A BOOK written in Burnside is

about to cross the Tasman to be

bought and read by Australians.

After a run in book stores

across New Zealand, Jane Hole’s

second work, Talk of Treasure,

will be printed by Melbournebased

Transit Lounge Publishing

next year.

“It’s very exciting,” Mrs Hole

said.

The Wairakei Rd resident, who

writes under the pseudonym

Jane Carswell, took 10 years to

complete her first novel Under the

Huang Jiao Tree.

“It was finally picked up by the

18th publisher,” Mrs Hole said.

But it went on to win the Whitcoulls

Travcom Travel Book of

the Year in 2010.

Now Talk of Treasure is about

that writing experience, which

happened largely at her Burnside

home.

“A lot of it takes place from my

home, it really is a north-west

book,” she said.

It’s a memoir set to encourage

young writers and give readers a

peek at the hard yards which go

into getting a book published,

Mrs Hole said.

“I point out the reality of writing

that no-one told me about.”

It was also a chance to say

thank you to everyone, she said.

“One thing that was very

important was when I wrote the

first book I was so ill-experienced

so many people had to help – my

daughter, publishers, anyone.”

Mrs Hole said she thinks it will

still resonate with an Australian

audience, who will be fascinated

by the different way of life in New

Zealand.

“But the local content won’t

Hole with her second book

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

put audiences off . . . they’ll see

similarities, too,” she said.

Being published in Melbourne

“the so-called book capital of

Australia” was particularly thrilling.

“My son lives in Australia, so

I have family connections over

there too,” she said.

She is looking forward to hearing

how audiences react.

Mrs Hole worked at Pegasus

Press, shortly after Janet Frame’s

novel Owls Do Cry was published

in 1957.

Since then she has taught piano

and hosted Chinese exchange

students in Burnside.

While she said she still gives

the occasional music lesson, now

Mrs Hole’s time is largely filled by

working with other writers.

“It’s a hub of words on

Wairakei Rd,” she said.

Funding cut concern

•From page 1

Te Ora Hou Otautahi is also

worried about funding its

programmes, manager Jono

Campbell said.

“We’re really, really concerned.

We’ve already had funding

reduced,” he said.

Mr Campbell said the North-

West Collective, which

is a body of community

groups from the area,

already tries to keep

costs down by collaborating

as much as

possible.

But he said even then

they cannot sustain

any funding cuts.

“It really puts the

pressure on,” Mr

Campbell said.

It comes after a change in the

formula the city council uses to

work out how to allocate funding

and a shift in board boundaries,

Mr Wolfreys said.

“This has come about as a

result of a reallocation of community

grants funding between

boards based on a new mechanism

that takes into account

population and relative need.”

The funding allocated to each

board is now based 60 per cent

on population and 40 per cent

equity using census data, he

said.

Ali Jones

But Ms Jones said this method

is flawed.

“In parts of our ward where

the deprivation measure is low,

it is wrong to suggest that the

need there is less where there

could be (other factors) to suggest

there is still a significant

need, not indicated by the deprivation

score,” Ms Jones

said.

Although other

boards saw a reduction

in the amount of

organisations in their

areas when the wards

changed, Papanui-

Innes did not.

Ms Jones said that

did not translate in

reduction to funding.

The city council will

review the funding levels next

year.

Ms Jones said the board

would be “proactively involved”

in that review and would support

funding returning to previous

levels.

“Or even increasing them if

need be,” she said.

Teen’s Hagley Park showpiece

• By Julia Evans

ARTIST RUBY Williams

stood on the workshop floor of

ENI Engineering in Halswell’s

industrial outskirts.

It might not seem like a place

for creating art but the 15-yearold

St Albans resident couldn’t

wipe the smile off her face.

Ruby saw the sculpture she

designed as part of the SCAPE

Public Art season for the first

time.

“It’s perfect. It’s exactly what I

had in mind. Absolutely perfect,”

she said.

The mammoth steel branch,

which will be fixed to a tree in

Hagley Park, was shaped by ENI

engineer Paul Bacon.

It’s not something he gets to do

very often.

Ruby, who attends Villa Maria

College, picked out the “pinkypurple”

shade it will be painted,

saying it represented her personality.

Ruby’s mum Breda said her

“budding artist” had been waiting

eagerly to see the sculpture all

day. She was “so, so proud” of her

daughter.

Ruby won the chance to see

her sketches come to life after

winning the senior section of the

Re:ACTIVATE project.

“I don’t know how to explain

how it feels. It’s just really, really

CREATIVE: Ruby Williams, 15, is all smiles with her steel

sculpture of a tree branch.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

cool to finally see it,” Ruby said.

The branch will be on display

for six weeks during the public art

season from October 7.

It will even feature as a stop on

the public walk, which takes people

on a tour of all the public art

in the city, including pieces from

big names like Antony Gormley.

Ruby said she would be taking

a few more trips through the park

than she usually would just to see

it.

Her design relates to the

concept of memory and involves

recreating a tree’s lost limb out

of metal. “Replacing that branch

with a wire copy resembling the

memory of the limb that used

to be there. The city is similar in

some regards – it fell during the

earthquake and was completely

changed, parts of it were gone but

not forgotten.”

But this is only the beginning

in Ruby’s art career.

The teen said seeing the

branch had given her the drive

to keep chasing her creative

dreams.

Wartime rationing and requisition

Papanui during World

War 2. Part 2, by Murray

Williams chairman of the

Papanui Heritage Group.

SHONA ELLIOTT, née Turton,

was a schoolgirl living in Sails

St during the war, and later she

remembered the tension as the

casualty lists were published in

the newspaper.

The impact of the war became

more personal when the local

grocer’s assistant and a school

friend’s brother were both killed

in action.

Mrs Elliott recalled that she

and her classmates learned to

knit and they produced scarves,

balaclavas and socks of varying

quality for the soldiers of the

New Zealand Division.

New Zealand citizens had to

accept that much of the freedom

they had traditionally expected

had to be severely modified during

the war.

Blackout conditions in the

hours of darkness were enforced

by members of the home guard

and other designated officials.

Private motor vehicles could

be commandeered for army use

for the duration of the war.

firm’s operation – and local, Des

Tomkies, had his motor-cycle

requisitioned.

A comprehensive rationing

system was enforced – sugar,

tea and butter, meat, clothing

and linen were all subject to this

regime.

The system relied on the use

of coupons and this imposed an

extra burden on retailers.

Merle Gregor’s father owned

a grocery shop on the corner

of Blighs and Papanui Rds and

she recalls that as a teenager she

was responsible for counting the

coupons received to reconcile

these with the rationed goods

sold during the week.

Mrs Elliott felt that her mother

managed very well and that in

some respects the depression

years of the early 1930s had

prepared the family to cope with

wartime shortages.

Few families of Mrs Elliott’s

circle of friends owned motor vehicles

and therefore the stringent

rationing of petrol did not affect

them much.

By 1942, the possibility of air

raids created some anxiety but

there is no evidence of a public

shelter being constructed in

Papanui.

There was some public

criticism that Papanui Primary

School had no effective shelter.

The Canterbury Education

Board tried to defuse this

concern by adopting a policy of

‘dispersal’ and arguing that as

the vast majority of pupils lived

within seven minutes of the

school that they could safely be

sent home.

This theory was based on the

assumption that at least seven

minutes warning of impending

raids would be provided.

There is anecdotal evidence

that many Papanui families attempted

to dig trenches in their

back gardens although these

good intentions were often frustrated

by the area’s high water

table.

Don’t fight fire unless

you are sure to succeed

• By Mark Thomas – specialist fire

investigator

I WENT to the fire on Clifton

Hill, in Sumner, which recently

destroyed most of a home.

There were a few things there

that are worth mentioning.

Firstly the occupants were in

an unfamiliar house and once

smoke began to restrict visibility

it was fortunate that one of the

group had familiarised himself

with the route to the back door

and was able to herd most of his

family in the right direction.

Secondly and knowing human

nature, understandably, the

group leader tried to put the fire

out.

It was too advanced at this

stage and all he managed was to

receive very painful burns.

He only evacuated the house

when smoke was too thick to

breathe.

He very nearly didn’t make it.

I was asked later by media how

the fire grew so large so quickly.

There was nothing unusual

about the fire growth here.

Modern furniture, made

of plastics, foams and nylon,

provides a huge reserve of fuel

A better deAl

Lucy’s goal earns award

• By Julia Evans

ACHIEVING the highest

level of the Duke of

Edinburgh’s Hillary Award

is no easy task.

But at 17-years-old, St

Margaret’s College student

Lucy Adams has already

managed to get the gold

award under her belt

and was the youngest at

this year’s ceremony in

Government House, Wellington.

Lucy said you can start

the programme after

turning 14 – but have to

put in a certain amount

of time before you achieve

the bronze, silver and

finally gold levels of the

award.

So at 14, that’s what she

did. She wanted to start

soon as she could.

“It takes a really long

time, so I wanted to do it

award in 2015 and silver in

2016.

But to complete gold, she

said you have to tick off all

five sections of the award

– service, skills, adventurous

journey, physical

recreation and a residential

project.

Lucy volunteered around

the boarding house of

the school, played netball

and tennis, went on a

leadership course at Boyle

River and did a tramp

through the Cass-Lagoon

Saddle track.

“It was really cool to

have met my goal and get

the award before I turned

18,” Lucy said.

Although she said the

effort she put in was exhausting.

“It was a really cool

experience, I did a lot of

things I wouldn’t have otherwise

done,” she said.

Skilled Professionals

offer a range of foot care

treatments

For many people, the skills of

a podiatrist may be something

they think they will never need

to access. In fact, these health

professionals provide a range of

valuable services for that very

hard-working part of our body

– our feet, which can be subject

to a number of health conditions

and discomfort issues.

As Ian Graham of the Papanui

Foot Clinic explains: “Podiatrists

treat foot and ankle problems in

several different ways. This includes

general maintenance such as cutting

toe nails and removing corns and hard

callouses.”

Having a pedicure done in the clean,

sterile environment of the podiatry

clinic is safer than in a mall-based nail

clinic, Ian advises, as the sharing of

nail polishes, for example, can lead to

cross infections in the nails.

As the weather warms up and we

swap our closed-in winter footwear for

strappy sandals and open-toed shoes,

Ian suggests it is an ideal time to have

any hard skin that has developed on

the toes and back of the heels removed,

giving feet a smooth, attractive

appearance.

Ingrowing toenails, which can cause

pain and discomfort, are easily treated

at the Papanui Foot Clinic by Ian and

his fellow podiatrist Anna Brown.

“We offer several treatments for

this, including removing the spike of

nail that’s growing into the toe and

procedures to correct the problem so it

won’t happen again,” Ian says.

The ageing process also affects our

feet, as it does other parts of the body,

and they can start to deteriorate.

Ill-fitting shoes that press on the

wrong areas can make this worse. The

Papanui Foot Clinic podiatrists can

help by explaining to patients how the

foot functions and moves, and treating

problems such as fallen and collapsing

arches.

They also offer treatment for

diabetics, who have particular

problems with their feet such as loss of

circulation and loss of feeling.

“It’s important for diabetics to keep

their feet in good order with regular

care,” Ian says.

Children often experience foot

problems, particularly when they

change from one sport to another.

Painful heels, for example, are quite

common and these can be treated with

orthotic support.

“We also advise on the right footwear

for children, and help them with

stretching programmes to relieve tight

muscles,” Ian says.

The Papanui Foot Clinic carries the

Dr Comfort footwear range for men

and women. These are wider and

deeper than standard footwear and are

designed for people that have trouble

finding shoes to fit.

“These have been very successful for

patients,” Ian says.

The Papanui Foot Clinic is located

at 448 Papanui Road, phone 352

6400. It is open Monday to Friday,

9am-5.30pm with evening clinics on

Tuesdays and Thursday till 7.30pm.

Circles Yelling and singing in the

One of the best nights of my life,

spent with boys I know and love.

Feeling we could take on the

Making the glorious pilgrimage

night.

I’m riding Andre’s brother’s

bike. He rode it when he was eight

years old.

The wind caresses my grown-out

shaggy hair, making my black

funeral scarf fly behind.

The scarf gets caught on my

eyes, leaving me for a few seconds

blind.

The three of us make a grand

trio. We never plan what we get

up to on these nights.

No girls, no drama, no fights.

Only unconsciously finding trouble.

On this particular night, the

cheap, greasy meal tasted better

than ever.

The way back, we’re stopped by

a pair of cops, to fine us for not

wearing helmets.

Andre utilizes his clever tongue,

pulling the funeral card, telling

them of the loss of our fourth

companion.

The wolves decide to leave us

troublesome sheep for today, in

search of an easier meal.

We arrive home and return the

bikes to their assigned spots in

Andre’s garage.

The floor felt nice that night,

sleep coming easy that we’d had a

grand night.

Creating iconic stories to tell our

SUMS: Benjamin Frazer, Jaymee Chen, Xavier Dickason and

Tobet Glithero correctly answered all questions at Cantamath. ​

THE NEW rockstars of St

Andrew’s College don’t wear

leather jackets or ripped jeans.

But they know their way

around a calculator.

The college’s year 10 Cantamath

team - Jaymee Chen,

Benjamin Frazer, Xavier Dickason

and Tobet Glithero - won

themselves a “golden ticket” at

the 46th Cantamath competition.

The team won the ticket after

they received a perfect score,

100 points, and answered all the

maths questions correctly.

Their teacher, Ben Hilliam, said

the students worked very hard

towards their goal, and to win

Cantamath has been a long held

aspiration.

“At lunchtime the week before

Cantamath, all teams from year

7 to 10 competed against each

other in to simulate the intense

atmosphere at Cantamath to

ensure our teams were not overwhelmed

at the competition,” Mr

Hilliam said.

It comes off the back of more

mathematic success.

A group of year 12 students,

Russell Boey, Velia Men, Zachary

Scheiwe and Bryson Chen beat

out 11 other schools to win the

Same Day Reline &

challenge.

The Canterbury Mathematics

Association competition was run

as a relay in pairs, students had to

complete questions then run up

to the judges with their answers.

The St Andrew’s team answered

all questions correctly

and beat Christ’s College and

Burnside High School, whose

teams have dominated the senior

competition.

The college last won the competition

in 2001.

Pre-schoolers’ imagination takes flight

PRE-SCHOOLERS’ imaginations

took flight while making rockets

with older students.

Rangi Ruru Preschool children

joined a year 10 technology class

from the girls’ school to design and

build a 3D rocket.

Pre-school centre manager Linda

Scanlan said the engagement and

excitement was palpable among the

children while they worked alongside

the girls.

“The negotiation, discussion, collaboration

and laughter really was a

joy to observe and a true reflection

of our ‘share the joy of childhood’

belief,” Mrs Scanlan said.

It all started with the pre-schoolers

working on rocket drawings,

exploring their thoughts on what a

rocket might look like.

The next day they went over to

the school and began working

with the “big girls”, transcribing

their ideas down on a larger piece

of paper and then into a computer

programme in which the older

girls could construct replicas of the

pictures.

“It’s about the natural curiosity

being enabled and encouraged,”

Mrs Scanlan said.

The year 10 girls will now begin

the process of transferring this information

onto their programming

software in order to create a 3D

printed rocket model for each of the

children involved.

TAKE FLIGHT: Pre-schoolers’ rockets will be brought to life

by Rangi Ruru Girls’ School students.

INTERACTING: Children from Fairleigh Kindergarten learning

how to care for Bugsy the greyhound.

BUGSY THE greyhound

visited children at Fairleigh

Kindergarten.

Richard and Claire, from the

guinea pigs into the kindergarten

to teach children about how to

take care of animals.

The children were taught a

song to remember the five most

important rule – food and water,

shelter, love, health care and

exercise.

The children collected pet food

and gold coin donations, which

they gave to the SPCA.

brought back a bit of life to the

central city.

Year 6 pupils from Selwyn

House School turned an empty

lot in the central city into a popup

roller-skating rink.

The Wonder Wheels event was

supported by urban regeneration

initiative Gap Filler.

Selwyn House pupils tried out

roller-skating at the site before

members of the public and business

mentors were invited to join

in. The school has been working

with Gap Filler as part of its

education programme.

Selwyn House business development

and marketing manager

Jennifer Shepherd said the girls

involved in the project are only

10 and 11-years-old.

“It is amazing to see a group

of young girls take an interest in

adding life back into a city which

was badly damaged when they

were only two and three years of

age,” she said

FUN: Pupils are helping to make the central city a more

vibrant place to visit.

Central city lot turned into skate rink

Gap Filler learning facilitator

Sally Airey said this kind of

learning experience gave pupils

the chance to make a real contribution

to the city and helped

make it a more vibrant place to

live. “We hope that this event

encourages others to use this and

other vacant sites in creative and

fun ways.”

ASSIST: Some pupils had not

had the chance to roller-skate

before.

New reverend

moves into

rebuilt Merivale

church vicarage

• By Julia Evans

THE FIRST step in a historic

Merivale church rebuild is complete.

The vicarage of the All Souls’

Anglican Parish of Merivale St

Albans, a combination of the former

St Mary’s Anglican Church in

Merivale and St Matthew’s Anglican

Church from St Albans, has been

opened and blessed.

Interim priest-in-charge, Reverend

Megan Herles-Mooar, has

moved into the new vicarage with

her family.

Construction began on the new

church in April at the site of the

former St Mary’s Anglican Church

on the corner of Papanui Rd and

Church Lane.

The church building is set to

open in mid-2018. The Warren and

Mahoney designed building will include

a specially-commissioned circular

chapel which, unlike St Mary’s

previous gothic structure, will flood

the new church with natural light.

It will include a memorial window

from St Matthew’s and stained glass

windows saved from St Mary’s.

For the last six years, the two

congregations have worshipped

together at St Margaret’s College

auditorium.

Papanui boxer takes out

super heavyweight title

• By Andrew King

Discover this

unique Emporium

NORTH-west fighters

had a great showing at

the New Zealand Boxing

Championships last week,

bringing home four titles

from five categories.

Papanui Boxing Club’s

Sam Watt (right), 25,

won the A.B.A Trophy

after winning the 91-plus

kilogram elite super heavy

title, and Ryan Entese, 26,

won The Arty Beban Memorial

Trophy after winning

the under-52kg elite

title at the tournament in

Rotorua from Monday to

Friday last week.

Watt added to his other

three New Zealand titles,

but said he can definitely

improve and is looking

forward to more ring time.

“It is always great to

travel with Canterbury

and we set the standard

for other teams by setting

a high standard,” he said.

Redwood Boxing Club’s

Rendz Remaneses, 25, won

the under-56kg elite title,

and Kaelan Boyce, 18, won

the under-56kg youth title.

Riverside Boxing Club’s

Sophie Mullally, 16, lost

the semi-final of the under-57kg

junior category

and said, regardless of the

result, it was fun.

Canterbury Boxing Association

team manager

Holly Sullivan said it was

one of the “greenest”

teams they have taken to

the national championships

in quite a while, but

in spite of that the team

was awarded the Malcolm

Treston Shield for the

most wins at the competition.

“They have all had a

really good run in spite of

how fresh they are. Some

have come up against really

good fighters, so it is

pretty awesome they have

done as well as they have,”

she said.

Papanui Boxing Club

coaching stalwart Phil

Shatford was also honoured

at the tournament

with a life membership of

the New Zealand Boxing

Coaches Association for

his 20 years of service to

the sport.

Other Canterbury

fighters who won titles:

Leon Gibson, 13,

Waikuku Boxing Club,

under-36kg cadet; Izyah

Hesp, 12, Smiling Tigers

Boxing Club, under-50kg

cadet; Daniel Meehan,

14, Smiling Tigers Boxing

Club, under 57kg cadet;

Tyler Rodgers, 22, Burnham

Boxing Club, 80-plus

kilogram elite female

champion; Sunny Teki-

Clark, 28, Bells Boxing

Gym, under-81kg elite.

Runner-ups:

Jarrod Gear-Ngatai, 16,

Smiling Tigers Boxing

Club, under-57kg cadet;

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

TOMATO AND MOZZARELLA

WITH CRUMBED

EGGPLANT

Ingredients

1 Eggplant, sliced into 1cm

rounds

2 Eggs, lightly whisked and

seasoned

1 cup Breadcrumbs

¼ cup Chopped fresh herbs, e.g.

parsley or chives

1 bottle Oil, enough for cooking

eggplant

2 cups Tomatoes, sliced or

chopped

2 whole Mozzarella cheese

1 cup Basil leaves

1 drizzle Lemon-infused olive

oil, to serve

Directions

Firstly crumb the eggplant. Dip

into seasoned egg, then roll into

the breadcrumbs and parsley

combined in another bowl. Set

aside in the fridge until ready to

cook.

Into a frying pan pour a little

oil. Fry the eggplant on a medium

heat to ensure they cook

right through, turning once to

brown both sides.

Onto a platter, place the eggplant,

tomatoes, torn mozzarella,

basil and salt and pepper. Drizzle

over the lemon infused olive oil

then serve.

MOZZARELLA AND PESTO

SCHNITZEL PARCELS

Ingredients

1 Salt & freshly ground pepper,

to season

8 slices Beef schnitzel

250g Mozzarella cheese, sliced

¼ cup Basil pesto

1 Tbsp Olive oil

Directions

Season schnitzel with salt

and pepper and lay on a work

surface. Arrange two slices of

mozzarella on one half of each

schnitzel and top each with a

heaped teaspoon of pesto.

Fold the empty side of each

schnitzel over to cover the filling

and secure by threading

two toothpicks through each

schnitzel parcel. Heat a non-stick

frying pan, add a film of oil and

place schnitzel parcels in the

pan. Cook over a medium heat

for 2 to 3min on each side, or

until browned on both sides and

cheese has melted.

SWEET ORANGE, DATE AND

MINT SALAD

Ingredients

½ cup Freshly squeezed orange

juice

1 Lemon

3 Tbsp Honey, mild

4 Navel oranges

3 Mint leaves

8 Dates, moist

2 tsp Orange blossom water,

optional

Directions

Put the juices (orange and

juice of one lemon) and honey

into a small pot and gently bring

to the boil. Simmer until reduced

by a third. Cool.

Place an orange on a board

and use a sharp serrated knife

to cut a slice off each end. Stand

the orange on one end and cut

off all the rind and pith. Lay the

orange on its side and cut into

thin slices. Place the slices in a

shallow bowl. Repeat with the

remaining oranges, laying the

mint leaves among the orange

slices.

Stone the dates and cut into

chunks. Pile on top of the orange

slices. Add the optional orange

blossom water to the syrup and

pour over the salad. If possible,

set aside for an hour before

serving.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

NOR’WEST NEWS

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

New branding,

new products

for family-run

health food co

The family-owned and locally operated

New Zealand Health Food Company

(NZHF) has seen steady growth since its

launch in 1988.

The company was founded by Rob

Haines as a way to introduce indigenous

products and nutritious ingredients

to New Zealand and the rest of the

world. He began creating product

lines that took advantage of New

Zealand’s diverse landscape and

pristine ocean waters, including two

collections of natural supplements,

Kiwi Natural Health and New Zealand

Health Food. These were followed by

KNH, another natural supplement line,

along with Manuka South, which includes

products that focus on the healing powers

of honey.

Now NZHF is introducing some new

products – including a long-awaited

new line of Manuka honey – and also

rebranding itself to reaffirm its place

as one of the country’s most popular

providers of supplements, super foods and

skincare.

The rebranding is designed to reflect

the growth NZHF has experienced since

its inception, with the company’s mission

being to continue providing a one-stop

shop for health-focused, high-quality

products including supplements, super

foods, skincare products, sports nutrition

and weight management, as well as

essential oils.

Many are produced using locally

sourced ingredients, with the company’s

exports helping to introduce the rest of

the world to the health benefits offered by

the nutrient-dense offerings that are part

of New Zealand’s diverse landscape.

The centrepiece of NZHF’s

rebranding efforts is a new

logo, which is an updated, more

contemporary version of the

company’s original lotus flower.

The rebranding also includes

an updated, easier to navigate

website that will not only include

current tools such as a chat box and links

to social media, but also new features

and a design that will make it easier for

customers to find the right products to

reach their optimum health goals.

Over the three decades that NZHF

has been in operation, it has remained

privately owned and locally operated. Rob

Haines, along with his son, two daughters

and son-in-law, are all an integral part

of the business and strive to provide

quality products at an affordable price, so

that health and wellness are available to

everyone.

Both online and at the retail store,

they and their knowledgeable staff are

committed to helping customers be the

best they can be, in mind, body and

spirit. And from Friday September 15 to

Monday, September 25, NZHF is having a

sale, offering some great specials for their

customers.

For more information about New

Zealand Health Food Company, visit

www.nzhealthfood.com or call at the

retail store, 215 Woolridge Road,

Christchurch, which offers an excellent

customer loyalty programme. Opening

hours are Monday to Friday 9am-

5.30pm and Saturday 10am-4pm.

The Tree of LIFE

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

GO-Advanced

Omega-PC

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times, new

research has shown that neurons can grow

back with the right conditions and that a

special extract of Gingko Biloba (EGb-761

or TEBONIN) has been clinically found to

assist in this. The implications for stroke

recovery are obvious, but researchers also

know many of us suffer from undetected

“micro-strokes” that over a period of time

slowly reduce our cognitive function.

TEBONIN is prescribed worldwide as a

natural supportive agent for a healthy brain

and cognitive function. It supports healthy

mental performance, concentration, focus,

alertness, motor function and to help

with many conditions including tinnitus

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

BOOST BRAIN

PERFORMANCE UP TO 30%

TEBONIN is the No 1 Ginkgo Biloba extract in the World with more than 8 million tablets

being consumed every day. It is also the most researched herbal extract with more than 60

controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent

efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30

years to support blood flow, capillary health, brain health & performance.

Studies on TEBONIN Show:

- Improved Brain Performance & Function up to 30%. This includes improvement

in mental sharpness, focus, attention, concentration, understanding, memory & recall.

- Reduces errors made & mental stress.

- The only Ginkgo shown to increase activity in all areas of the brain. Can help restore

brain function after a brain injury such as from a stroke.

- Helps relieve tinnitus (ringing & noise in the ears), vertigo, dizziness & supports normal

balance.

- Improves blood flow to all areas of the body.

- Reduces plaque formation in the blood vessels.

- Protective effect against eyes damage caused by light.

micro-circulation and helps the blood flow

reach those critical places it needs to get to.

It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes the

red blood cells more pliable and capillary

walls more flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented multistep

extraction process. Each small tablet

contains a highly concentrated 50:1 extract

to give you a therapeutic clinical dose

without having to take a large amount of

the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba products on

the market, and tested by a major medical

journal, only TEBONIN passed all five of the

test requirements. Ten brands didn’t meet

any requirements and the rest didn’t pass

more than three out of five requirements.

TEBONIN is the only Gingko biloba

extract shown to activate all areas of the

brain and is considered the gold standard

in Gingko. TEBONIN has been trusted by

millions of consumers worldwide for over

30 years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

TEBONIN and further information

Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural

ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good

Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!

Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally

contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process. GO OMEGA-PC is produced using a new more natural cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. Studies show GO OMEGA-PC offers superior absorption with

increased omega-3 fatty acids in organs giving the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC OFFERS:

• Superior absorption of vital Omega-3, as

It is well known how important omega-3

fatty acids are to good health. It is estimated

most people don’t even get a third of the

recommended omega-3 fatty acids on

a weekly basis. Countries with a higher

amounts of omega-3 in their diet are known

to have lower cardiovascular disease and, in

many cases, better overall health.

Recent research has shown inflammation

to be a big part of disease and the ageing

Fish oil can help reduce inflammation

by providing essential fatty acids required

by the body to heal itself and maintain

good health. Until now most fish oil

only contained omega-3 fatty acids in

triglyceride form. Fish, however, naturally

contain omega-3 in triglyceride and

phospholipid form but until recently the

phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new

standards in fish oil as it contains

omega-3 attached to both triglycerides

and phospholipids. Studies have shown

GO-Advanced Omega-PC to be far better

absorbed, leading to increased levels of

vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs

through giving the potential for more

health benefits.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced

from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish

using a new advanced and more natural

cold extraction process that better preserves

the natural nutrient profile found in fish. It

is manufactured to high GMP standards

and is molecularly distilled to remove any

containments, toxins and heavy metals.

Further info on this revolutionary new

fish oil and its benefits is available from

the Natural Health Advisers, Naturopath

and Medical Herbalist at Marshall’s

Kids love CASPA!

A child who’s ‘a

little different’

Children who are just ‘a little different’ – perhaps they’re

clumsy, have difficulty writing or tying shoelaces, or

prone to ‘meltdowns’, and struggle to fit in.

To interpret and function in the world

we need to accurately process information

from our environment.

Some children’s nervous systems

may receive, sort and use information

inaccurately (sensory processing) causing

them to either under or over reaction to

a sensation, or actively seek or avoid a

sensation.

This may cause distress for the

child, family and teachers,

as coping with everyday

experiences like

noisy classrooms,

the feel of fabric,

or moving in a

coordinated way

may present huge

challenges. It can

influence behaviour

and interfere with

learning, doing

everyday activities or

simply fitting in.

No child is the

same, each have

their own individual

difficulties.

Therapy Professionals Therapists

may be able to help improve the life

of these children and those around

them. Contact us at 3775280 or

www.therapyprofessionals.co.nz.

CASPA (Creative After School

Programmed Activities) incorporating

PAPA JACKS offers children the

opportunity to be creative, make new

friends and try new experiences all within a

safe, nurturing environment. CASPA offers

working parents an affordable after school

and school holiday programme that their

kids just love!

CASPA attributes its success to the

variety of activities on offer as well as the

convenience and affordability for parents.

CASPA kids enjoy an exciting range of

activities including sports, music, games,

drama, arts and craft as well as fun trips.

Previous themes and activities have included

a Karaoke Dance Party, CASPA Fear Factor,

Healthy Art, Out of Africa and hundreds of

other amazing themes/activities!

CASPA parents enjoy peace of mind,

knowing their kids are safe and enjoying

the benefits of a quality after school

programme. Some parents and caregivers

also enjoy government subsidies for

CASPA. CASPA is Child Youth and Family

approved for the OSCAR Subsidy and in

some circumstances, the full CASPA fee

will be covered by the subsidy.

Gregory-Hunt (Roy Orbison); Brian Skinner (Elvis); Barry

Cro (Neil Diamond); George Tanner (Barry Gibb); Chrissi

Williams (Patsy Cline) and Ray Harris (e Shadows).
