New World<br />

Bishopdale<br />

wins battle<br />

to display<br />

booze<br />

• By Bridget Rutherford<br />

A SUPERMARKET has won a<br />

three-year battle allowing it to<br />

display alcohol at the end of aisles<br />

and facing other groceries – for<br />

now.<br />

The Alcohol Regulatory and<br />

Licensing Authority has decided<br />

to allow New World Bishopdale to<br />

display its alcohol where it is, until<br />

it renews its off-licence next year.<br />

But medical officer of health<br />

Alistair Humphrey said the<br />

decision will increase shoppers<br />

exposure to alcohol resulting in<br />

more sales.<br />

“More sales of alcohol results<br />

in more harm, both directly and<br />

indirectly,” he said.<br />

Currently, the alcohol is displayed<br />

on an outer aisle. At the<br />

rear of the supermarket, it faces<br />

the dairy chillers, while at the<br />

other end, it is opposite the bakery<br />

products.<br />

Under new rules in the Sale and<br />

Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, supermarkets<br />

and grocery stores must<br />

restrict the display of alcohol to a<br />

single area.<br />

The area should be out of the<br />

way so customers do not have to<br />

walk through it when doing their<br />

general shopping.<br />

Alan Jamieson.<br />

The 69-year-old has dedicated<br />

a lifetime to St Albans cricket but<br />

after five decades of administration<br />

work he’s decided to call it<br />

quits.<br />

On page 13, we talk with Jamie<br />

about his time at the club and<br />

why he’s decided to close his innings.<br />

He joined the club from<br />

Papanui High in January 1965<br />

and played 521 games, took 1260<br />

wickets and scored 7008 runs<br />

until March 2006.<br />

That’s not a bad scoreboard in<br />

anyone’s reckoning.<br />

And Jamie says he won’t be<br />

seen much around te club now<br />

either and he’ll be likely watching<br />

matches from a discreet distance.<br />

“I want to give them a chance<br />

to take the reins without me hovering<br />

around,” he says of the new<br />

administrators.<br />

Supermarket wins booze battle<br />

• By Bridget Rutherford<br />

•From page 1<br />

In 2014, New World<br />

Bishopdale’s new owner Bond<br />

Markets, applied to the district<br />

licensing committee for a new<br />

off-licence under the new rules.<br />

During the hearing, concerns<br />

were raised about the alcohol<br />

display being<br />

in the general<br />

shopping area.<br />

But owner Nigel<br />

Bond said due to<br />

space restraints,<br />

there were no<br />

Alistair<br />

Humphrey<br />

other options.<br />

The committee<br />

ruled to restrict<br />

the area, so Bond<br />

Markets appealed the decision<br />

to ARLA, which ruled in its<br />

favour.<br />

Dr Humphrey then appealed<br />

ARLA’s decision to the High<br />

Court. Justice David Gendall<br />

then quashed ARLA’s ruling.<br />

After a Court of Appeal<br />

sitting, ARLA reconsidered<br />

the appeal against the district<br />

licensing committee’s original<br />

2014 decision in July.<br />

In a recent decision, ARLA<br />

said the supermarket’s offlicence<br />

was up for renewal next<br />

year.<br />

SUCCESS: New World Bishopdale has won a battle on how it can display alcohol.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

“The Authority does not<br />

consider it in the interests of<br />

justice that the parties are put<br />

to the trouble and expense of<br />

having to renew the licence only<br />

to have to do so again almost<br />

immediately thereafter.”<br />

But Dr Humphrey said ARLA<br />

declined to take into account<br />

limiting exposure to alcohol,<br />

instead taking a pragmatic<br />

approach.<br />

“By placing alcohol directly<br />

opposite a section of the<br />

supermarket which most<br />

shoppers frequent, exposure<br />

to alcohol, often significantly<br />

discounted, will be increased,”<br />

he said.<br />

He said the High Court<br />

victory meant supermarkets<br />

were now recognising their<br />

obligations when it comes to<br />

alcohol sales and having a<br />

separate alcohol area.<br />

New World Bishopdale’s<br />

alcohol sale area had remained<br />

the same while the issue was in<br />

dispute.<br />

New World South City<br />

was originally fighting a<br />

similar battle, but because it<br />

is redeveloping on a different<br />

location, it withdrew its<br />

appeal.<br />

Foodstuffs South Island<br />

retail general manager Tim<br />

Donaldson said it was “very<br />

pleased” with the decision.<br />

He said Foodstuffs stores<br />

understood the obligations<br />

under the current legislation.<br />

Rangi international club raises<br />

money for cyclone hit Tonga<br />

Rangi Ruru Girls’<br />

School head of<br />

the international<br />

club, Amy<br />

Chen, writes<br />

about raising<br />

funds for a<br />

school in Tonga<br />

devastated by a cyclone<br />

and the importance of<br />

being a global citizen<br />

There are about 60 members in<br />

the international club, including<br />

both international and domestic<br />

students from all over the world.<br />

Some now live here permanently,<br />

while some are international<br />

students with families<br />

overseas.<br />

Something we learn from our<br />

early years here is that we are<br />

global citizens; that we are part<br />

of a much bigger picture.<br />

I like to live my life by treating<br />

others how I want to be treated<br />

myself. And I think a good way<br />

to check yourself now and then is<br />

to make sure you are contributing<br />

to the lives of others and not<br />

making it all about you.<br />

We have fun in the international<br />

club, too, with occasional<br />

movie nights and club outings.<br />

Some girls help others settle in<br />

GLOBAL: International week<br />

at Rangi Ruru Girls’ School<br />

saw students embracing<br />

cultures from all over the<br />

world.<br />

if they are new to New Zealand,<br />

while others have great energy<br />

and drive to keep the club going.<br />

Diversity is so important in life<br />

and at Rangi Ruru we are proud<br />

to celebrate it every day, while<br />

having a bit of fun too.<br />

International week at Rangi<br />

Ruru aimed to enable the girls<br />

at our school to become more<br />

engaged with different cultures<br />

and raise funds for a school<br />

in Tonga affected by Cyclone<br />

Winston.<br />

One of the highlights for me<br />

was the international food day,<br />

where girls brought in food from<br />

their culture to share with the<br />

school and raise funds.<br />

St Andrew’s High School in<br />

Tonga is still struggling after<br />

Cyclone Winston more than a<br />

year ago. It was already under<br />

pressure as it was short of basic<br />

education necessities, such as<br />

stationery and school books.<br />

Being able to keep the<br />

maintenance up at St Andrew’s is<br />

almost considered a luxury. The<br />

school struggles to find enough<br />

money to do what it needs to do.<br />

Many of the families are<br />

struggling and unemployment<br />

is an issue. Because the school is<br />

funded from fees, it means there<br />

isn’t enough money for even the<br />

basics like books and other dayto-day<br />

needs<br />

We are very fortunate here<br />

in New Zealand, and especially<br />

being students at Rangi Ruru.<br />

We raised $1700 for St Andrew’s.<br />

St Andrew’s oldest alum dies<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

ST ANDREW’S oldest collegian<br />

has passed away.<br />

Naylor Hillary, 102, was part of<br />

the centenary celebrations at the<br />

college in March where he cut<br />

the cake.<br />

But it was way back at the beginning<br />

of 1929 that Mr Hillary<br />

first attended St Andrew’s. He<br />

moved into the boarding school<br />

from his family home in Opawa.<br />

“I have very pleasant memories<br />

of my time there,” he told<br />

Nor’West <strong>News</strong> in March.<br />

His son, grandsons and now<br />

great-grandson have all received<br />

their education at St Andrew’s.<br />

Rector Christine Leighton<br />

said Mr Hillary was a “special<br />

person”.<br />

“We are privileged to have had<br />

some special moments with him<br />

over these last few years,” Mrs<br />

Leighton said.<br />

The Papanui resident was also<br />

one of the oldest veterans of the<br />

Royal Air Force’s Tempsford 138<br />

acknowledged.<br />

At the end of last year, Mr<br />

Hillary was awarded the French<br />

Legion d’Honneur medal by the<br />

French ambassador for his services<br />

during WW2. His daughter<br />

Haunting of Sisson Drive<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

THIS TIME cars are not to<br />

blame for congestion around<br />

Northlands Shopping Centre –<br />

it’s the ghosts.<br />

After receiving complaints<br />

of congestion from users of<br />

the Sisson Drive and Sawyers<br />

Arms Rd intersection, the city<br />

council investigated and found<br />

“ghost calling” is causing traffic<br />

build up, city council manager<br />

planning and delivery transport<br />

Lynette Ellis said.<br />

She said feedback from people<br />

using the intersection indicated<br />

the light phasing was not correct<br />

when detecting cyclists.<br />

“When the signal operation<br />

was analysed ghost calling<br />

was evident in the detection<br />

logs.”<br />

Ms Ellis said finding a cause is<br />

difficult as ghost calls can occur<br />

for a variety of reasons.<br />

“They happen when the<br />

induction loops or the thermal<br />

cameras incorrectly detect a<br />

vehicle, cyclist or pedestrian,”<br />

she said.<br />

At the Sisson Drive<br />

intersection, Ms Ellis said the<br />

lights were incorrectly detecting<br />

cyclists, which may be caused by<br />

electrical interference, software<br />

coding or thermal spikes. It<br />

unnecessarily changes the phase.<br />

COMMUTERS: The lights at the intersection of Sisson Drive and<br />

Sawyers Arms Rd were found to be ghost calling.<br />

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS<br />

She said ghost calling tends<br />

to effect new intersections and<br />

the lights only went in recently<br />

during the Papanui Parallel<br />

cycleway upgrades.<br />

City council staff and<br />

contractors have been working<br />

on the issue and said the<br />

occurrences of ghost calling have<br />

been reduced.<br />

Ms Ellis said she believed the<br />

underlying issues causing the<br />

ghost calling have been found.<br />

“Changes have been made to<br />

the software and some changes<br />

to the detection loop settings<br />

inside the traffic signal controller<br />

and this is currently being<br />

monitored to ensure issues have<br />

been resolved,” Ms Ellis said.<br />

EXERCISE: Commodore Airport Hotel general manager<br />

Michael Patterson and David Cartwright try out the new<br />

Burnside fitness trail.<br />

Fitness trail open in Burnside<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

BURNSIDE PARK’S $69,000<br />

fitness trail was opened on<br />

Saturday.<br />

Said Fendalton-Waimairi-<br />

Harewood Community Board<br />

chairman David Cartwright:<br />

“It’s a fantastic asset for the city<br />

and particularly this part of the<br />

neighbourhood.”<br />

The project was a joint effort<br />

by the community board, which<br />

was approached by the Commodore<br />

Airport Hotel with the<br />

idea.<br />

The hotel then donated<br />

$10,000 and the board gave<br />

$11,500, plus a similar contribution<br />

came from three rotary<br />

clubs – Bishopdale-Burnside,<br />

Avonhead and Riccarton.<br />

Mr Cartwright said it was a<br />

great example of someone coming<br />

to the community board<br />

with an idea, and the board taking<br />

it on and getting involved.<br />

The four stations include a situp<br />

bench, push-up bars, stairs, a<br />

vertical ladder, chin-up bar, gym<br />

rings, a shoulder wheel, cross<br />

trainer, pull down exerciser,<br />

recumbent cycle, skier, leg press,<br />

parallel bars, monkey bars and a<br />

balance beam.<br />

“The exercise equipment is<br />

quite general. Kids, adults and<br />

those with disabilities can use<br />

the gear,” he said.<br />

It was all installed in phases,<br />

starting two years ago but completed<br />

this month.<br />

Pump house designs out<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

FENDALTON residents<br />

will have their water back to<br />

pre-quake volumes with the<br />

installation of a new $2.5 million<br />

pump house.<br />

A new pump house, with a 500<br />

cu m tank, is now in the planning<br />

stage for Jeffreys Reserve<br />

on Jeffreys Rd. An architect<br />

has drawn up the design which<br />

will go out for consultation this<br />

month.<br />

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood<br />

Community Board chairman<br />

David Cartwright said he<br />

asked city council staff about<br />

the costs around further design<br />

options.<br />

“Staff came back and said it<br />

could be as much as $20,000.<br />

That’s $20,000 of ratepayers’<br />

money that could be spent on<br />

fixing potholes.”<br />

He said the board did not want<br />

to “over consult” on something<br />

that was an essential service.<br />

“It is a big beast and its necessary,”<br />

Mr Cartwright said.<br />

Fendalton city councillor<br />

Jamie Gough said from his<br />

perspective, it was a great pump<br />

house.<br />

“Not many pump houses are<br />

designed by architects,” he said.<br />

Residents will get a chance to<br />

give feedback on the design during<br />

a community engagement<br />

PLANS: The pump house will<br />

get Fendalton residents water<br />

service back to pre-quake<br />

levels. ​<br />

meeting this month, city council<br />

manager planning and delivery<br />

John Moore said.<br />

“At the end of the day, it’ll<br />

blend in. After a while you walk<br />

past telephone or power boxes<br />

and generally don’t notice,” Mr<br />

Cartwright said.<br />

Four bores have already been<br />

dug by the city council 100m<br />

into the ground to get to the<br />

water reservoir below.<br />

“The earthquake-damaged<br />

water tank, which is not in use<br />

now, needs to be replaced . . .<br />

Jeffreys Rd pump station will<br />

then be able to provide the<br />

pre-earthquake flow rates to the<br />

network,” Mr Moore said.<br />

The land is set to be secured by<br />

November, a detailed design will<br />

be complete by February and<br />

the structure will be finished in<br />

2019.<br />

Bug Invasion where players<br />

fly The Wizard to the New<br />

Brighton Pier to protect it from<br />

a bug invasion.<br />

These and another five games<br />

are at Gap Filler’s Super Street<br />

Arcade on Tuam St. They will<br />

feature one at a time for three<br />

days each.<br />

“It’s amazing when they see<br />

their games being played and<br />

enjoyed by complete strangers,”<br />

Gap Filler learning facilitator<br />

Sally Airey said.<br />

Ms Airy said the games will<br />

be running through the school<br />

holidays. She said the best few<br />

will also get to feature for a<br />

week after the holidays finish.<br />

Seven teams of students have<br />

been designing the games as<br />

part of their digital technologies<br />

classes.<br />

Supported by the Ministry<br />

of Education, the programme<br />

GAMERS: Bug invasion, designed by Aaron Briggs and<br />

Thomas Were from Papanui High School, takes The Wizard<br />

to New Brighton Pier to protect it from a bug invasion.<br />

has seen students experience<br />

the Super Street Arcade for<br />

themselves, respond to a brief,<br />

create and work on concepts<br />

then present those to a panel of<br />

experts.<br />

Game developers Cerebral-<br />

Fix, which designed the app<br />

Attack of the Cones based on<br />

Christchurch and create content<br />

for Disney, worked with the<br />

students.<br />

Ms Airy said CerebralFix has<br />

loved working with the younger<br />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

generation.<br />

“We’re blown away by what<br />

the students have achieved,<br />

they’re tackling quite complex<br />

technical and design challenges<br />

and smashing it,” Nadia<br />

Thorne, head of studio at CerebralFix<br />

said.<br />

Ms Thorne said she hopes to<br />

run the programme again next<br />

year.<br />

Now<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Pokemon on the cycleways<br />

POKEMON GO took the world<br />

by storm and has now provided<br />

the inspiration for a campaign<br />

to get people using the city’s<br />

cycleways.<br />

A group of Selwyn House<br />

pupils looked at the app which<br />

involved collecting imaginary<br />

monsters from locations around<br />

the world as a way to increase<br />

usage of the paths.<br />

As part of a class project on<br />

community problem-solving,<br />

Alice Hunter, Reed McHugh,<br />

Cleo McLeod and Sophie<br />

Hogson, used their school’s laser<br />

cutter and 3-D printer to create<br />

bicycle shaped cut-outs that<br />

would be hidden in places along<br />

the cycleways.<br />

People would have to find and<br />

collect photos of the cut-outs,<br />

like Pokemon Go characters,<br />

then post them on social media<br />

or a website.<br />

The pupils said they hope<br />

to decorate the cut-outs to<br />

encourage people to get out<br />

on the cycleways to hunt them<br />

down.<br />

“This could get families and<br />

kids off their couches and onto<br />

the cycleways,’’ Alice, 11, told<br />

the city council’s infrastructure,<br />

transport and environment<br />

committee.<br />

Reed, 11, said they hoped to<br />

involve other schools in the<br />

project by inviting them to<br />

decorate the cut-outs.<br />

“Safety will be a major factor<br />

in choosing where these bikes are<br />

placed because we don’t want to<br />

cause crashes or traffic jams,’’ she<br />

said.<br />

Cleo, 12, said social media<br />

INVENTIVE: Sophie<br />

Hogson, Reed<br />

McHugh Cleo McLeod<br />

and Alice Hunter<br />

spoke to a city council<br />

committee about<br />

their idea to get more<br />

people using the<br />

cycleways.<br />

could be used to promote the<br />

cycle hunt and the cycleways.<br />

“The project could tie in with<br />

social media to get more people<br />

involved. Once people find a bike<br />

they can take a picture next to it<br />

and post it on social media using<br />

the hashtag,’’ she said.<br />

“A website could be created<br />

that pulls all the hashtag posts<br />

from Instagram, Twitter and<br />

Facebook. It could also have a<br />

downloadable and printable map<br />

of the bikes’ locations.”<br />

The girls’ ideas were well<br />

received by the committee.<br />

“The committee is very<br />

impressed and excited by<br />

this idea and we will use the<br />

appropriate channels to pick this<br />

up,’’ committee chairwoman and<br />

city councillor Pauline Cotter<br />

said.<br />

Bid to make corner safe<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

AFTER 19 crashes over a sixyear<br />

period, Chaneys Corner is<br />

about to be upgraded.<br />

City council staff said safety<br />

improvements at the corner of<br />

Main North, Marshland and<br />

Spencerville Rds are critical.<br />

“As part of this work, we will<br />

create a left hand turning slip<br />

lane for motorists travelling<br />

north on Marshland Rd who<br />

want to turn left to access the<br />

Northern Motorway,” staff said.<br />

There has been uncertainty<br />

from vehicles coming off Main<br />

North Rd, staff said.<br />

So the left hand slip will allow<br />

“clear separation” from motorists<br />

travelling straight ahead<br />

- avoiding oncoming traffic<br />

altogether.<br />

“The Main North Rd give<br />

way will be changed to a stop<br />

sign to make it consistent with<br />

the Spencerville Rd approach<br />

and reduce confusion regarding<br />

priorities.”<br />

There will also be updated<br />

warning signs that say “slow<br />

down” installed on Marshland<br />

CRASH: After 19<br />

accidents over a<br />

six year period,<br />

Chaneys Corner<br />

is now being<br />

upgraded. ​<br />

Rd as an early advisory to motorists.<br />

The city council investigated<br />

the possibility of putting traffic<br />

lights or a roundabout at the<br />

intersection.<br />

However, staff said traffic is<br />

“anticipated to reduce drastically”<br />

with the completion of<br />

the Northern Arterial.<br />

These options would also<br />

cause significant delays to<br />

vehicles on Marshland Rd,<br />

and staff said the pattern of accidents<br />

would change and could<br />

increase in severity.<br />

“A roundabout is not suitable<br />

for this location due to the<br />

unbalanced number of vehicles<br />

at the four approaches to this<br />

intersection.”<br />

The city council has opened<br />

the proposal up for feedback<br />

from the public until <strong>October</strong><br />

27, which can be given on its<br />

website.<br />

All feedback will be considered<br />

before a staff recommendation<br />

goes to the Papanui-Innes<br />

Community Board in February.<br />

If approved, the project will<br />

begin in the middle of next year.<br />

St Andrew’s skipper selected<br />

at hooker in NZ Schools team<br />

SPORTS<br />

BACK TO FORWARD: Former St Andrew’s College player<br />

Shilo Klein moved from second-five to hooker and has<br />

been selected in the New Zealand Schools side.<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

SPEED AND power are<br />

two attributes needed in the<br />

modern-day hooker.<br />

But 18-year-old Shilo Klein<br />

has something else too: He’s a<br />

natural midfielder.<br />

The St Andrew’s College<br />

student, who moved from<br />

second-five to hooker last year,<br />

was one of 25 named in the<br />

New Zealand Schools side to<br />

play three games against two<br />

Australian and a Fijian team<br />

in Sydney.<br />

He didn’t play in the 54-7<br />

demolition of the Fijian<br />

Schools side on Thursday.<br />

Christ’s College first XV<br />

captain and centre Isaiah<br />

Punivai was also named in the<br />

New Zealand Schools side.<br />

Klein was also included<br />

in the Crusaders Academy<br />

for next year and is looking<br />

forward to making a career<br />

out of rugby.<br />

He weighs in at 105kg and<br />

is 180cm. He’s well-suited to<br />

the forward pack, first XV cocoach<br />

Mike Johnston said.<br />

“The skills he learnt at<br />

second-five has helped out as<br />

a hooker. He has developed<br />

some really good passing skills<br />

and lines to run out in those<br />

wider channels,” he said.<br />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

“We thought he would be a<br />

good fit in that position and<br />

that has been proved correct<br />

with his selection in the New<br />

Zealand Schools side.”<br />

Klein, who was born in<br />

Sacramento, California, said it<br />

was a no-brainer to move into<br />

the forward pack.<br />

“I had a lot of feedback that<br />

this position would suit my<br />

style of play. I played like a<br />

forward in the backline, I ran<br />

straight and looked for good<br />

physical go-forward,” he said.<br />

It took him a few attempts to<br />

feel comfortable in the middle<br />

of a scrum, but now he loves it.<br />

“In my first scrum, I felt<br />

claustrophobic, but I got used<br />

to it,” he said.<br />

Klein captained St Andrew’s<br />

this year, leading them to fifth<br />

in the UC Championship and<br />

third in the co-ed cup in the<br />

New Zealand Barbarians first<br />

XV championship.<br />

He moved to Christchurch<br />

when he was three with his<br />

parents, Howard and Wendy.<br />

“I play the sport in one way<br />

or another all year round,<br />

as I play touch and sevens<br />

also. I really want to play<br />

professionally some day,” he<br />

said.<br />

Jamieson pulls up stumps at St Albans<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

ST ALBANS Cricket Club’s<br />

season will begin this weekend.<br />

After 52 years as a club member<br />

– 44 of those as president and<br />

chairman – Alan Jamieson, 69,<br />

has pulled has pulled stumps on<br />

his administration career to allow<br />

a new crop of management to<br />

take it into the future.<br />

He may not be at the ground<br />

for the opening game – but you<br />

might see him watching the action<br />

from afar.<br />

After 52 years, 44 as president<br />

and chairman, the Avonhead<br />

man has pulled stumps on his<br />

administration career to allow a<br />

new crop of management to take<br />

it into the future.<br />

“I want to give them a chance<br />

SPORTS<br />

to take the reins without me<br />

hovering around,” he said.<br />

On August 1, Graham Curgenven<br />

took over as president and<br />

Pierre Flavell as chairman.<br />

Jamieson oversaw the merger<br />

between the St Albans Women’s<br />

Cricket Club and men’s club in<br />

1977, one of the first clubs to do<br />

so in the city, saw the coming and<br />

going of a number of professional<br />

players at the club and watched<br />

Chris Harris, Chris Martin and<br />

Mark Priest go on to play for New<br />

Zealand. He said he can’t take<br />

credit for Martin’s batting style,<br />

which is famous around cricket<br />

grounds both here and abroad.<br />

“He was a number 11 the day<br />

he joined the club from Christchurch<br />

Boys’,” he laughed.<br />

Jamieson joined the club from<br />

Papanui High in January 1965<br />

and played 521 games, took 1260<br />

wickets and scored 7008 runs<br />

until March 2006.<br />

Jamieson played “on the front<br />

foot” both on and off the pitch<br />

resulting in a few run-ins with<br />

cricket bosses.<br />

“Lee Germon and I have<br />

had some fierce conversations<br />

over the years, I didn’t win too<br />

many of those,” he said with a<br />

chuckle. •Turn to page 14<br />

Pulling up<br />

stumps<br />

after 52 years<br />

•From page 13<br />

He said the club had become a bit<br />

“nomadic” after the 2014 redevelopment<br />

of Hagley Oval, but the overall end result<br />

was a fantastic international cricket<br />

ground.<br />

Jamieson said the lure of the game will<br />

be hard to stay away from, but as he did<br />

after finishing his playing days, he will<br />

watch from a distance.<br />

“I used to watch from afar after I finished<br />

playing, behind trees and in cars,<br />

because, you know how it is. If you are<br />

hanging around, soon you are called up to<br />

fill in then your back playing,” he said.<br />

The main thing he will miss is the communication<br />

with all the players, officials,<br />

coaches and management of the club, he<br />

said.<br />

“I have noticed since I have been away<br />

the communication has stopped. It remains<br />

to be seen if the winter month quietness<br />

will reflect the summer months,”<br />

he said. One of the hardest and best moments<br />

in his long tenure share a common<br />

date: January 30, 2009.<br />

The clubrooms, in Hagley Oval, suffered<br />

an arson attack at about 7am, burning it<br />

to the ground.<br />

Jamieson said it was the worst moment<br />

of his time at the club standing on the<br />

field watching his beloved clubrooms billow<br />

smoke and collapse in the inferno.<br />

“But rebuilding it brought the club<br />

together. The club rallied and it made it<br />

stronger,” he said.<br />

Now retired, Jamieson said he has time<br />

to do something else rather than cricket.<br />

Top UC Championship season<br />

Aranui’s Tahu<br />

Kaa-Goodwillie has<br />

been selected in the<br />

under-18 Maori side<br />

after a solid season<br />

with UC Championship<br />

winning Christchurch<br />

Boys’ High School. He<br />

talks to Andrew King<br />

about almost heading<br />

to Auckland after<br />

being spotted at an<br />

intermediate sevens<br />

tournament<br />

Tahu Kaa-Goodwillie has<br />

been playing the sport he<br />

loves since age four and the<br />

hard work has paid off with<br />

his inclusion in the under-18<br />

Maori side.<br />

The 17-year-old, whose<br />

iwi is both Ngati Porou and<br />

Ngai Tahu, was a standout<br />

performer in this year’s UC<br />

Championship at second-five<br />

with a number of line breaks<br />

and a huge defensive workload<br />

cementing his spot in the<br />

starting Christchurch Boys’<br />

High School side and earning<br />

him a call-up for higher<br />

honours.<br />

But he could have been<br />

busting tackles in Auckland.<br />

His talent was identified<br />

when he was 12 by talent<br />

scouts from a couple of<br />

Auckland schools at the 2012<br />

AIMS Games in Tauranga,<br />

LEADER: Tahu Kaa-Goodwillie leads the haka for Christchurch Boys’ High School.<br />

where he was playing<br />

sevens for Chisnallwood<br />

Intermediate.<br />

He was offered a full<br />

scholarship to St Kentigern<br />

College, Auckland, which<br />

prompted him to talk with<br />

then coach and PE teacher<br />

Jared Mitchell about what he<br />

should do.<br />

“I had no idea what to tell<br />

him so I got High School Old<br />

Boys coach Aaron Mauger to<br />

have a chat with him about the<br />

pros and cons of going north<br />

or staying here,” Mitchell said.<br />

Kaa-Goodwillie was planning<br />

on heading to CBHS,<br />

but the offer from Auckland<br />

gave him another option to<br />

consider.<br />

A meeting with CBHS<br />

headmaster Nic Hill, school<br />

sports co-ordinator Steven<br />

Dodds and Mauger outlined<br />

that he could have the best of<br />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

both worlds, great education<br />

and a chance to play in a wellrespected<br />

rugby team.<br />

“Aaron told him you don’t<br />

need to be in Auckland to<br />

be an All Black. But we said<br />

it would not just be rugby,<br />

school work came first,” Mr<br />

Hill said. Kaa-Goodwillie said<br />

the decision to stay in Canterbury<br />

was so he could be close<br />

to family, but the Auckland<br />

offer was hard to turn down.<br />

earns Maori selection<br />

“But it has worked out pretty<br />

good for me,” he said.<br />

He stayed with his uncle<br />

Stewart Kaa for two years on<br />

Rata St, Fendalton, less than 1km<br />

from CBHS, so he was in the<br />

zone to attend the high school<br />

before moving back home with<br />

his mother Tania Kaa and father<br />

Carlin Goodwillie in Parklands.<br />

His form this year earned him<br />

selection in the Crusaders Junior<br />

Knights development camp<br />

held at St Andrew’s College in<br />

July before being selected in the<br />

Junior Knights who lost 25-10 in<br />

a curtainraiser match against the<br />

under-18 Hurricanes side.<br />

He has been involved in Metro<br />

representative rugby since age 13.<br />

He trialled and missed out<br />

on the New Zealand Schools<br />

team this year but said making<br />

the Maori team is a fantastic<br />

stepping stone for him as it has<br />

always been his dream to play<br />

rugby professionally.<br />

“With the Maori team, we get<br />

to play more games compared to<br />

the New Zealand Schools side.<br />

So that has been a bit of blessing<br />

in disguise,” he said.<br />

Kaa-Goodwillie played for<br />

the Linwood Rugby Club until<br />

age 11, before playing for the<br />

Christchurch Football Club until<br />

high school. He now plays for<br />

CBHS’s first XV.<br />

“The move to Christchurch<br />

Football Club was to develop me<br />

as a player. I will always have a<br />

START: Tahu Kaa-Goodwillie’s passion for rugby started at the<br />

Linwood Rugby Club in 2004. He said he would like to play for<br />

the club again one day.<br />

soft spot for Linwood, though,<br />

and I am considering a return<br />

to play there one day,” Kaa-<br />

Goodwillie said.<br />

The Christchurch club was<br />

formed in 1863 and is the oldest<br />

club in the country, producing<br />

32 All Blacks including Richie<br />

McCaw.<br />

CBHS first XV coach Danny<br />

Porte said Kaa-Goodwillie is an<br />

impressive ball-runner.<br />

“He is a very physical when<br />

carrying the ball into contact<br />

and is a direct physical threat to<br />

the defensive line,” he said.<br />

“He has great footwork and<br />

great leg drive and is very<br />

professional about the way he<br />

goes about things on and off the<br />

field.”<br />

He was in the gym last week<br />

when the call came through<br />

that he had been included in the<br />

Maori side.<br />

“It hasn’t really soaked in yet,<br />

but for me, it was a satisfying end<br />

to the season and a great reward<br />

for all hard work that I had put<br />

in over the year,” he said.<br />

Kaa-Goodwillie, who<br />

measuring 185cm and weighing<br />

in at 91kg is one of the quickest<br />

players in the current CBHS<br />

CHARGE: Kaa-Goodwillie had a great season with CBHS<br />

and was a big part of the side’s second consecutive UC<br />

Championship title this year.<br />

team, said he looks up to players<br />

like Sonny Bill Williams and<br />

Ryan Crotty. The under-18 Maori<br />

team played the New Zealand<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,<br />

most homes include at least one heat pump,<br />

if not a whole heating solution. They can<br />

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more<br />

convenient than a log burner as you just need<br />

to press a button. But how do you decide<br />

what is best? Choosing the right sized heat<br />

pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort<br />

levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore<br />

important to get professional advice from heat<br />

pump experts.<br />

The range varies from wall mounted high<br />

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,<br />

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted<br />

central heating systems allowing you to have a<br />

very discreet way of heating your whole home<br />

to a constant temperature throughout.<br />

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that<br />

is suitable for the size of the space you wish<br />

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to<br />

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area<br />

taken into consideration but also, insulation,<br />

building orientation, windows and ceiling<br />

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps<br />

available with different heating outputs so it<br />

is important to select the correct size for your<br />

requirements that will handle the job but not<br />

be unnecessarily overpowered.<br />

Secondly, the location of your heat pump<br />

is also extremely important. The cheapest<br />

installation is a back to back where the outdoor<br />

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor<br />

unit however this is not necessarily always<br />

the best option. It is vital that the indoor<br />

unit is positioned in a place that will not be<br />

Choosing the right heat<br />

pump for your home<br />

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is<br />

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people<br />

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly<br />

in their outdoor entertaining area or right<br />

outside their bedroom window.<br />

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands<br />

have come and gone over the years but there<br />

are a number of manufacturers who provide<br />

reputable and reliable products. All brands<br />

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of<br />

systems and price, so it depends on your<br />

application as to which will be most suitable.<br />

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,<br />

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are<br />

all reliable brands backed up by good technical<br />

after sales service.<br />

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an<br />

accredited installer. This will not only ensure<br />

correct installation of your heat pump, but<br />

also validate the manufacturers warranty.<br />

Other things to consider when choosing a<br />

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the<br />

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi<br />

capabilities.<br />

Heating is a major investment in your home<br />

and it is vital to get the right advice.<br />

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,<br />

installation and servicing of all major brands<br />

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers<br />

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as<br />

to which system will suit your application<br />

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no<br />

Miracle weight loss fruit<br />

An extract of a small pumpkin-like fruit<br />

called Garcinia Cambogia from India &<br />

Asia has shown itself to greatly assist weight<br />

management & overall health. In fact many<br />

have found it to increase fat loss by 2 to 3<br />

times greater than normal. T.V. Dr. Oz has<br />

said it is the most effective & fastest working<br />

natural supplement to support weight loss.<br />

Even without exercise & diet changes<br />

many have found it beneficial, although even<br />

better & quicker results are often obtained<br />

with extra exercise & an improved diet.<br />

The extract of this amazing fruit is called<br />

Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or CitriMax.<br />

Research has shown HCA to help suppress<br />

the appetite, reduce cravings, feel fuller for<br />

longer, increase energy levels, help prevent<br />

fat from being made & stored in the body,<br />

increase lean muscle mass, increase<br />

serotonin levels in the brain that<br />

help control mood & sleep<br />

(great for emotional eaters),<br />

improve cholesterol levels<br />

that may help reduce<br />

the chances of strokes<br />

& cardiovascular<br />

disease, help prevent<br />

sugar spikes as well<br />

as other health<br />

benefits.<br />

It is considered<br />

a very safe<br />

supplement<br />

(although check first<br />

if you are on medication)<br />

as it has been used for centuries<br />

as a flavouring agent & digestive aid.<br />

Need more vitality?<br />

The nutrient balance of the body is critical<br />

for optimum aging. Research has shown<br />

the body performs much better if all the<br />

required nutrients are available in sufficient<br />

quantities. The problem is it is very hard<br />

to obtain enough if any of some of these<br />

nutrients from a normal diet. Boron is one<br />

of the many nutrients with amazing benefits<br />

that is lacking in our diet. A 2014 double<br />

blind placebo controlled human clinical<br />

study of a patented form of the mineral<br />

121 Skyhawk Road<br />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

boron delivered significant reduction in<br />

pain, stiffness and joint comfort with 80%<br />

stopping or reducing medication and<br />

87.5% saying they had less or no stiffness<br />

in just four weeks. Boron also helps balance<br />

hormones in both men and woman and can<br />

increase fertility. It helps promote healthy<br />

muscle mass, fights diabetes, strengthens<br />

the bones and increases concentration and<br />

brain function.<br />

Pure Vitality are based on the West Coast<br />

of the South Island. They aim to manufacture<br />

life changing supplements that provide<br />

the highest quality natural ingredients to<br />

Take a trip with<br />

Third Aged Tours<br />

Taking people aged over 50 on trips<br />

around New Zealand and the world for<br />

nearly 20 years has earned Third Age Tours<br />

a brag book that Director Brenda Corby-<br />

Yarrall says “businesses would give their<br />

eye teeth for.’’<br />

“Taking small groups of 10 – 24 people<br />

means I can operate the tour in a relaxed,<br />

companionable manner. We have an<br />

absolute blast when we’re away. It’s all about<br />

having fun”.<br />

“Most of my trips are run annually<br />

because they’re so<br />

popular, but I’m always<br />

adding new destinations<br />

- like “Sicily, South Italy<br />

& Vatican” + “Cuba”, as<br />

people ask for them.’’<br />

Brenda checks out<br />

all accommodation<br />

before booking it, and<br />

ensures the party spends<br />

at least a few nights at<br />

each place. “That way<br />

you don’t feel like you’re<br />

living out of a suitcase.’’<br />

Many clients now have<br />

made over 20 tours with<br />

us, one has completed a<br />

whopping 27 tours.<br />

“My clients tell me<br />

they keep coming back<br />

because of the size of the groups and our<br />

relaxed manner. My motto is ‘There are no<br />

strangers, only friends waiting to meet.’<br />

We gather together for breakfast at<br />

8.30am which sets us up for the day and<br />

everybody thinks is a very civilised hour.’’<br />

“I organise incredible trips at incredible<br />

prices. Look around, you can’t find better<br />

for all we include”.<br />

A family affair<br />

at local gym<br />

The Smith and Mackintosh families<br />

When Ignite Fitness was set up at the<br />

Papanui Club in early 2016, the challenge<br />

was to create an exercise atmosphere that<br />

appealed to a diverse market. One of the<br />

areas identified was the involvement of<br />

family members and groups, manager of<br />

the fitness centre Eddie Kerrigan says.<br />

“We must have done something right<br />

as we now have numbers of families who<br />

have joined up. The environment at Ignite<br />

Fitness is a safe, non-threatening one in<br />

which parents can be confident that all<br />

their family members will be looked after<br />

in a professional and caring manner.”<br />

There are three families of four, four<br />

family groups of three, and around 25<br />

family groups of two currently signed up,<br />

Eddie says.<br />

Two of those families are the Smith<br />

family and the Mackintosh family, and<br />

Eddie spoke to them about why they<br />

joined Ignite Fitness, and what they got<br />

out of it. There were a variety of reasons<br />

for joining. These included improving<br />

fitness, losing weight, keeping joints and<br />

limbs moving, stalling the effects of ageing<br />

and family bonding. The handy location<br />

of the gym was also an important factor,<br />

they said.<br />

Both families said they went to the gym<br />

two to four times a week, depending on<br />

their school and work schedules. Asked<br />

what activities they enjoyed most, in<br />

order of popularity they said these were<br />

resistance training, cardio exercise and<br />

circuit classes, though they liked taking<br />

part in all of the activities and exercises.<br />

Depending on the activity, they<br />

sometimes competed with one another to<br />

see who could achieve the most, and both<br />

sets of parents tried to be an inspiration<br />

for their families.<br />

Both families said they had gained a<br />

number of health benefits since starting<br />

at Ignite Fitness. Strength and fitness<br />

were two key beneflts, but there was also<br />

pain management and all-over physical<br />

stability. In addition to the physical<br />

benefits, they enjoyed socialising with<br />

other gym members, and their self-esteem<br />

improved.<br />

“We are delighted that families like the<br />

Smiths and the Mackintoshes get so much<br />

enjoyment from coming to our gym, and<br />

new families and groups are always more<br />

than welcome to join,” Eddie says.<br />

Ignite Fitness is open 5.30am-9.30pm<br />

Monday to Friday and 5.30am-6.30pm<br />

weekends and public holidays. To find<br />
