Victim tells sobering story<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High<br />

School students are about to get<br />

a sobering lesson.<br />

George Cairney’s life was<br />

completely changed in 2008<br />

when he sat in the passenger’s<br />

seat of a car beside a driver who<br />

had been drinking.<br />

The car crashed<br />

into a brick wall at<br />

135km/h.<br />

He will talk<br />

about the incident<br />

George<br />

Cairney<br />

Graham<br />

Clarke<br />

Nic Hill<br />

to students at the<br />

CBHS hall on<br />

<strong>October</strong> 18 from<br />

7pm.<br />

At the time Mr<br />

Cairney, 24, was<br />

17 and attended<br />

King’s College in<br />

Auckland.<br />

Taking most<br />

of the impact<br />

of the crash, he<br />

has since been<br />

legally blind and<br />

has lost his sense<br />

of taste, hearing<br />

and smell, as well<br />

as developing<br />

diabetes, epilepsy<br />

and premature<br />

ageing.<br />

After spending a month in a<br />

coma, Mr Cairney also lost his<br />

memory from a year before and<br />

after the crash.<br />

His talk will discuss the road<br />

to recovery from his injuries, as<br />

well as the decisions which led<br />

to him to get into the car on that<br />

tragic day.<br />

Mr Cairney, who lives in<br />

HIGH RISK: Crash victim George Cairney will talk about drink<br />

driving to students at CBHS on <strong>October</strong> 18.<br />

Wanaka, will be supported<br />

during the talk by his mentor<br />

and friend Graham Clarke who<br />

has his own story to tell.<br />

His son was killed after<br />

getting behind the wheel after<br />

he’d been drinking.<br />

Headmaster Nic Hill has<br />

invited students from all schools<br />

around the city and the wider<br />

community to hear the story<br />

of “sadness, recovery, love and<br />

strength”.<br />

Mr Hill said the school is<br />

encouraging students to have<br />

emotional conversations about<br />

alcohol and driving.<br />

“These are conversations that<br />

we as adults have to be starting<br />

. . . there is a parental role<br />

in making sure our boys are<br />

equipped to be safe,” he said.<br />

Playcentre<br />

destroyed<br />

by fire<br />

rushes to<br />

find new<br />

home<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

BELFAST Playcentre is racing<br />

against the clock to find a new<br />

home after its building was gutted<br />

by fire.<br />

The playcentre, next to<br />

Sheldon Park on Main North<br />

Rd, caught fire just after 1pm on<br />

Sunday.<br />

With the school term starting<br />

next week, the playcentre is<br />

determined to find a new home<br />

so parents and children aren’t<br />

affected.<br />

A pot had been left on the stove,<br />

which caught fire during a fifth<br />

birthday party.<br />

“Two men put a fire blanket<br />

on the stove but it got out of<br />

control. Then they tried to use a<br />

fire extinguisher, which ran out<br />

of foam,” playcentre co-ordinator<br />

Julie O’Rourke said.<br />

“They did everything correctly<br />

. . . it’s just one of those things that<br />

happens.”<br />

The centre was evacuated and<br />

the two men were treated at the<br />

scene for smoke inhalation but<br />

were not taken to hospital.<br />

YOUNG MEN, cars, speed<br />

and alcohol are unfortunately a<br />

perfect mix for tragedy.<br />

It was like that decades ago,<br />

and it still remains today and<br />

will no doubt into the future.<br />

Next week, two people<br />

affected by drink driving and<br />

crashes will talk to students<br />

at Christchurch Boys’ High<br />

School.<br />

One is a young guy who was<br />

the passenger in a car driven by<br />

a drink driver that crashed –<br />

and one a dad who lost his son<br />

to drink driving (see page 1).<br />

How students digest the talk<br />

will inevitably be up to them.<br />

Hopefully, when they are<br />

out at the weekend, they’ll<br />

remember the talk and not<br />

get into a car driven by a mate<br />

who has been drinking, or get<br />

behind the wheel themselves<br />

after having a few.<br />

Fendalton roads worry<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

THERE ARE serious concerns<br />

for pedestrian and cyclist safety<br />

on Fendalton roads.<br />

And the creation of a working<br />

party to address the issues affecting<br />

Idris, Straven and Glandovey<br />

Rds has been a long time in the<br />

making, residents say.<br />

Traffic volume through the<br />

area is out of hand, the road<br />

layout is poor and the parts of the<br />

cycleway are too narrow, resident<br />

James Wilding said.<br />

The working party was established<br />

after Mr Wilding and<br />

other Fendalton residents Ross<br />

Seal and Barbara Hann made a<br />

deputation to the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood<br />

Community<br />

Board regarding these issues.<br />

The group also sent photos to<br />

city council staff in February and<br />

a letter signed by 200 residents to<br />

city councillors and the mayor.<br />

Working party members have<br />

not yet been confirmed but it<br />

will be made up of residents,<br />

including Mr Wilding, as well as<br />

community board members and<br />

city council staff.<br />

The residents want to create<br />

a “living street” atmosphere,<br />

which promotes pedestrians and<br />

discourages cars.<br />

“The board is keen to work<br />

FEARS: A working party has been established for the streets<br />

around Idris, Glandovey and Straven Rds to improve pedestrian<br />

and cyclist safety.<br />

productively with affected parties<br />

on the issues that have been<br />

raised about traffic volumes,” city<br />

council manager planning and<br />

delivery transport Lynette Ellis<br />

said.<br />

A date for its first meeting has<br />

not yet been set but residents are<br />

keen to address the mounting<br />

problems.<br />

Mr Wilding said there are a<br />

large number of trucks using<br />

the roads, which are classified as<br />

minor arterial or collector.<br />

“We have freight routes, for<br />

example Blenheim Rd. Those four<br />

and six-lane roads are the ones<br />

freight should us,” he said.<br />

Part of the cycle lane is 60cm<br />

wide. Under the city council’s<br />

guidelines cycle lanes should be<br />

at least 1.5m wide, not including<br />

the gutter, Mr Wilding said.<br />

And he said it’s not uncommon<br />

for vehicles to cross into the<br />

cycleways, which he has photographed.<br />

“Children must be, and feel<br />

safe, on our roads, especially<br />

in residential areas and near<br />

schools. The city council ought<br />

to help ensure a safe and healthy<br />

cycleway on Idris Rd is 60cm<br />

but according to city council<br />

regulation, it should be 1.5m.<br />

city for residents,” Mr Wilding<br />

said.<br />

The area has the highest density<br />

of residential heritage buildings<br />

in the city – which have been also<br />

been affected by the number of<br />

heavy vehicles, the residents said.<br />

“We seem to be creating a quiet<br />

largely traffic free CBD and busy<br />

suburbs. It is important the safety<br />

and character of suburbs right<br />

across the city is not lost as a result<br />

of post-earthquake changes,”<br />

Mr Wilding said.<br />

Build roads and the traffic will come<br />

Papanui city<br />

councillor<br />

and avid<br />

cyclist Mike<br />

Davidson<br />

writes<br />

about the<br />

major issue<br />

afflicting<br />

his ward and what<br />

he thinks would be a<br />

good alternative during<br />

Biketober<br />

One key issue facing the Papanui<br />

Ward, and the city, at the<br />

moment is traffic congestion.<br />

By 2041 it is predicted that<br />

there will be an additional<br />

70,000 vehicle movements within<br />

the four avenues every day.<br />

Work is also currently underway<br />

on the Northern Corridor,<br />

which is due to be completed<br />

within the next three years.<br />

But I struggle to see what<br />

benefit the city will see from this<br />

$240 million roading project,<br />

which channels non-ratepaying<br />

residents into the heart of St<br />

Albans as they head into the<br />

central city.<br />

The built environment influences<br />

behaviour and it will not<br />

take long before this new fourlane<br />

highway will be at capacity.<br />

So what is the answer?<br />

Modal shift – encouraging<br />

those who can, to use a different<br />

form of transport instead of a<br />

single occupancy vehicle – walking,<br />

cycling, catching a bus or<br />

car pooling.<br />

Perhaps if the money for this<br />

project had been invested into<br />

a decent passenger rail service<br />

from the north we could have<br />

had a true opportunity to influence<br />

behaviour for the better<br />

and created a truly sustainable<br />

public transport option.<br />

However, it would appear that<br />

numerous authorities and agencies<br />

have never taken seriously<br />

the possibility of passenger rail.<br />

The focus seems to be on the<br />

bus network as our public transport<br />

option even though the<br />

bus routes are not continuously<br />

separated from vehicles and<br />

are still forced to deal with the<br />

congestion street fight.<br />

Plus changes to the bus network<br />

now make it more difficult<br />

for a lot of people who have<br />

multiple changeovers and longer<br />

waiting times.<br />

With 50 per cent of car trips in<br />

the city under 5km we need to<br />

encourage the uptake of cycling<br />

and walking as an alternative<br />

mode of transport.<br />

Survey after survey show<br />

that there are a large number<br />

of people wanting to cycle, but<br />

choose not to because they feel<br />

it is unsafe. The major cycleway<br />

programme is designed to remove<br />

this safety concern barrier<br />

and encourage more people to<br />

take up cycling.<br />

CONGESTION:<br />

Work turning<br />

Cranford St<br />

into a fourlane<br />

major<br />

arterial is<br />

about to<br />

begin, but<br />

city councillor<br />

Mike Davidson<br />

isn’t sure the<br />

money is<br />

being well<br />

spent. PHOTO:<br />

GEOFF SLOAN ​<br />

There was never an expectation<br />

that the day these were<br />

completed there would be hundreds<br />

of new cyclists as it takes<br />

time to change culture.<br />

However, from cycleways<br />

completed so far, the numbers<br />

using these cycleways are<br />

already exceeding the predicted<br />

volumes.<br />

It is important that the cycleway<br />

programme is completed,<br />

public transport becomes more<br />

user-friendly and our transport<br />

culture is changed. If we don’t the<br />

congestion we are seeing today<br />

will pale in comparison to what<br />

will happen in the near future.<br />

We need our streets and transport<br />

network to work for everyone<br />

no matter what age, ability<br />

or form of transport used.<br />

Readers respond to a<br />

Nor’West <strong>News</strong> article<br />

regarding businesses<br />

on Cranford St worried<br />

Northern Arterial upgrades<br />

will force them to close<br />

Conrad Fitz-Gerald – A bit<br />

naive to expect the city council to<br />

do something that actually helps<br />

local businesses and residents.<br />

Maree Clayton – Less cars!<br />

More trains. No-brainier. Should<br />

have been a priority, immediately<br />

post-quake. South and north out<br />

of the city. Quicker, easy. Less cars<br />

on road, saving all round and less<br />

stress. Sadly, too many missed<br />

opportunities from a bunch of<br />

bumbling bureaucrats. Need<br />

an airport rail but alas we got a<br />

bloody archway.<br />

Jan Driscoll – Heavens,<br />

there is a bike in the picture . . . a<br />

rare sight indeed. Cranford St is<br />

already a nightmare, especially<br />

around 3 to 6pm. And with heavy<br />

parking on both sides around<br />

the garage and shopping centre<br />

that will evidently be going and<br />

then a massive expensive housing<br />

development along there, you<br />

have got a disaster in the making.<br />

Feel really sorry for the businesses<br />

around the Innes Rd and Cranford<br />

St corner. Another example<br />

of top quality planning. Adding<br />

another lane to the Northern<br />

Arterial won’t fix it either. Get rail<br />

Rob White – Well people<br />

have had at least 30 years to get<br />

used to this since it was first<br />

planned, and put off, and then<br />

off, and then back on again. The<br />

bigger problem is the city council<br />

actually agreeing to housing in<br />

the swamp on the other side of<br />

Cranford St.<br />

Sylvia Oliver – It is so hard<br />

on businesses after seven years<br />

you would think things would<br />

improve but, no, they get worse<br />

all the time. One wonders why<br />

our city council and so-called<br />

Government cannot intervene<br />

to protect the small businesses.<br />

Makes me so angry.<br />

Beverly Jackson – I live on<br />

Cranford St. They’ve given no<br />

consideration to the residents<br />

trying to get out of their driveways.<br />

It’s hard enough now.<br />

Michelle Green – Traffic<br />

today was horrendous, I queued<br />

for ages on Cranford St bumperto-bumper<br />

all way from Placemakers<br />

to Main North Rd.<br />

Readers also respond<br />

to the article regarding<br />

Bishopdale New World<br />

winning its battle to display<br />

alcohol on the ends of<br />

aisles<br />

Glenis Shaw – I don’t think<br />

it makes any difference. I like<br />

it being sold in supermarkets,<br />

easier and cheaper. Wine consumption<br />

is not a problem to the<br />

majority of people.<br />

Geoff Oscar O’Connell – I<br />

just wish Bishopdale New<br />

World stocked more Monteith’s<br />

Pilsner.<br />

Lynda Byrnes – The majority<br />

of people who shop in<br />

supermarkets are sensible, don’t<br />

let the few idiots ruin for the rest<br />

of us. We buy our alcohol and<br />

consume it sensibly with friends<br />

over meals. They don’t ban the<br />

caffeine drinks and other things<br />

that effect our teenagers, why<br />

make it hard to buy alcohol for<br />

consenting adults?<br />

Sharren Wilson – If they<br />

have a licence to sell alcohol, it<br />

makes absolutely no difference<br />

whatsoever where it is placed in<br />

the aisle.<br />

responsibility. Are you going<br />

to take away all my freedom of<br />

choice because some people can’t<br />

handle their drink or they are<br />

addicted to cigarettes, chocolate,<br />

Coca Cola, sugar, McDonald’s?<br />

Like I said personal responsibility<br />

Audrey Leslie – Alcoholic<br />

products should not be sold in<br />

supermarkets. It’s always the<br />

ones who can least afford it that<br />

are tempted to purchase alcohol<br />

when they go into the supermarket<br />

for food. I once watched<br />

two young men looking in the<br />

meat section, actually picked up<br />

a meat package, then returned<br />

it to the freezer and purchased<br />

a carton of beers instead. Now<br />

that’s sad.<br />

Ann Vernon – Alcohol is a<br />

dangerous drug. I personally<br />

think a separate discrete area is<br />

appropriate. In some supermarkets<br />

you have to walk through<br />

the alcohol section to access the<br />

shop. We normalise binge drinking<br />

in New Zealand and minimise<br />

the serious harm it causes.<br />

I try to limit this normalising<br />

alcohol use with my children.<br />

Having a different area does<br />

not penalise adults in any way.<br />

We no longer have cigarettes on<br />

display. Why not the same for<br />

alcohol?<br />

sort somewhere out . . . we won’t let<br />

it affect the families,” she said.<br />

But Ms O’Rourke said there<br />

would be a “shortfall” in terms of<br />

the insurance payout due to high<br />

demolition costs in the city.<br />

“We’ve had huge support from<br />

the community and playcentres<br />

around the country,” she said.<br />

Belfast Community Network<br />

chief executive Lynda Goodrick<br />

said the network of more than<br />

15 groups will rally behind the<br />

playcentre. “We’re gutted, it’s devastating<br />

for the families. But we’re<br />

doing everything we can to help<br />

support them,” she said.<br />

Breastfeeding programme recognised<br />

ST GEORGE’S Hospital staff<br />

have been honoured for their<br />

commitment to breastfeeding.<br />

“Breastfeeding is important<br />

and helps to lay the foundation<br />

for good health in infancy<br />

for mothers and babies,”<br />

New Zealand Breastfeeding<br />

Alliance executive officer Jane<br />

Cartwright said.<br />

She said for nine years staff at<br />

the hospital’s maternity centre<br />

have “served as a beacon in the<br />

region” for their standards of<br />

breastfeeding support and care<br />

for new parents.<br />

“Since the beginning of<br />

this year, about 800 women<br />

have discharged from St<br />

George’s facilities exclusively<br />

breastfeeding their babies -<br />

this is a great start towards<br />

breastfeeding babies when they<br />

return home,” Ms Cartwright<br />

said.<br />

St George’s charge midwife<br />

Andrea Robinson emphasised<br />

the importance breastfeeding<br />

plays in the reduction in rates<br />

of childhood infections and<br />

protection against later health<br />

risks.<br />

Ms Robinson said that<br />

breastfeeding is one of the<br />

smallest investments a country<br />

can make to build its future<br />

prosperity.<br />

“We should all be proud<br />

of being an integral part of<br />

providing such a precious<br />

investment to our women and<br />

to the wider health of<br />

our community,” Ms Robinson<br />

said.<br />

SERVICE: (From left) – Jane Cartwright, Sandra Wilson,<br />

Julia Daly, Andrea Robinson, and Maree Lewington have<br />

been recognised for their commitment to breastfeeding. ​<br />

Expansion likely for community centre<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

THE FOOTPRINT of the new<br />

St Albans Community Centre<br />

is set to expand.<br />

As a means of providing<br />

green space for the new<br />

facility, the city council has<br />

approved the Papanui-Innes<br />

Community Board’s recommendation<br />

to purchase a<br />

neighbouring property.<br />

Last year city councillor<br />

Mike Davidson spoke to the<br />

owners of the property, which<br />

is at 130 Caledonian Rd to<br />

see whether the sale could go<br />

ahead.<br />

However, he would not<br />

release details of that conversation<br />

as they were “commercially<br />

sensitive.”<br />

The property is next door to<br />

the Caledonian Rd side of the<br />

community centre site.<br />

Cr Davidson said the current<br />

community centre plans<br />

took up most of the current<br />

site, and once car parking was<br />

included, there would be little<br />

room for green space.<br />

City council general<br />

manager corporate services<br />

Bruce Rendall said as the city<br />

council is “still in negotiations<br />

around acquiring an option<br />

on the land” further comment<br />

is not appropriate.<br />

The matter has been referred<br />

to the 2018-28 Long Term<br />

Plan preparation process.<br />

It has been delegated Mr<br />

Rendall to negotiate the purchase.<br />

Thank you Northern Christchurch<br />

for your huge support and<br />

endorsement. I was honoured<br />

by an electorate majority<br />

increase from 2,500 in 2014 to<br />

over <strong>10</strong>,000 in <strong>2017</strong> that tells<br />

me you value accessibility and<br />

commitment to your area.<br />

over the past three years, I have<br />

enjoyed being a hands-on MP<br />

who has strived to be accessible.<br />

During the elections, I received<br />

great feedback that residents<br />

value being able to access me<br />

through my Belfast office, my<br />

evening meetings and other<br />

events I arranged to connect to<br />

you over the past three years.<br />

I look forward to continuing to<br />

work hard to advocate on your<br />

behalf in Parliament and to ensure<br />

our communities are resourced<br />

to meet the demands of a rapidly<br />

growing area.<br />

It was great to catch up with<br />

young achievers in North<br />

Christchurch recently. I met<br />

up with April McLennan in<br />

Northwood to hear more about<br />

Limitless, which she founded as a<br />

young school leaver to empower<br />

young New Zealanders to connect<br />

to opportunities and excel in the<br />

fields of work that inspire them.<br />

April is one of four recipients for<br />

the <strong>2017</strong> Minister for Youth’s<br />

International Leadership Award<br />

and it’s exciting to have this<br />

innovative social enterprise<br />

initiative in our area.<br />

I enjoyed presenting the Belfast-<br />

Kaiapoi rotary Club’s Young Totara<br />

Award at their presentation<br />

in Belfast recently to a very<br />

CONSTRUCTION is<br />

under way on a fifth set<br />

of traffic lights outside<br />

Northlands Shopping<br />

Centre.<br />

The aim of the signals<br />

is to improve pedestrian<br />

safety, which has been<br />

compromised by people<br />

taking a large number of<br />

unsafe crosses between the<br />

bus stops on Main North<br />

Rd.<br />

Work on the pedestrian<br />

crossing on Main North<br />

months earlier than<br />

opportunity arising.<br />

“An opportunity has<br />

arose to construct the<br />

crossing as a variation to<br />

an existing contract, which<br />

has mean that the project<br />

time frames can be brought<br />

forward,” Ms Ellis said.<br />

The crossing got the<br />

green light from the city<br />

council in May and will<br />

cost $450,000.<br />

“The crossing will provide<br />

a key link between the<br />

bus stops and Northlands<br />

Shopping Centre,” Ms Ellis<br />

said.<br />

However, concerns were<br />

raised by the Shirley-Papanui<br />

Main North Rd already<br />

has four sets of lights<br />

encompassing the mall on<br />

Langdons Rd, Halliwell<br />

Ave, Grassmere St and<br />

Sawyers Arms Rd.<br />

City council staff investigated<br />

and found the new<br />

signals would only add<br />

three to six seconds to the<br />

journey.<br />

And city councillor Mike<br />

Davidson said there was no<br />

compromise for people’s<br />

safety.<br />

“Pedestrian safety<br />

trumps a few seconds delay<br />

to motorists,” Cr Davidson<br />

said.<br />

The signals will be timed<br />

with the other sets of lights<br />

to keep delays to a minimum.<br />

‘Explosion of colour’ rewards gardeners<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

THE LOVELOCKS have done<br />

it again.<br />

Northwood residents Brian<br />

and Janet Lovelock came away<br />

with the premier gold at this<br />

season’s spring gardening awards<br />

from the Canterbury Horticultural<br />

Society.<br />

The couple also added two<br />

gold awards from the Christchurch<br />

Beautifying Association’s<br />

spring garden awards to their<br />

collection in the open and secret<br />

garden categories.<br />

“We’re pretty proud, we’ve<br />

always been big gardeners,” Mrs<br />

Lovelock said, they spend almost<br />

every day outdoors.<br />

She said the trophies will be<br />

put in a display case at their<br />

house until they have to be<br />

returned for the next round of<br />

summer judging.<br />

Which she said the pair are<br />

already working towards.<br />

“Some of my seedlings are already<br />

coming up. It never stops,”<br />

Mrs Lovelock said.<br />

Although the Lovelocks spend<br />

every day in the garden together,<br />

they wouldn’t often be caught<br />

sitting out there having a cup of<br />

tea.<br />

“If we sit out there, we always<br />

spot something that could be<br />

better or needs to be fixed and<br />

keep working,” she said.<br />

But Mrs Lovelock said there<br />

is nothing more rewarding than<br />

their garden.<br />

“You get the tiniest handful of<br />

seed and watch it turn into an<br />

explosion of colour in the garden<br />

displays,” she said.<br />

The Lovelock’s spring award<br />

winning garden included tulips,<br />

polyanthas and shrubs like rhododendrons<br />

and azaleas.<br />

But come November they’ll<br />

be pulling out the annuals and<br />

planting their summer garden.<br />

Food for fundraiser<br />

PRETZELS, THAI jelly, tapas,<br />

Japanese curry, rice balls, sushi,<br />

waffles and lolly cake.<br />

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School<br />

students tried dishes from<br />

different countries.<br />

Dean of international<br />

students Louise Stanton said the<br />

International Club, headed by<br />

Amy Chen, organised the event<br />

as a fundraiser for St Andrew’s<br />

High School in Tonga.<br />

One of the sisters from St<br />

Andrew’s spoke to the school<br />

last year and the Rangi students<br />

were all struck by the struggle<br />

the school still faced following<br />

Cyclone Winston early last year.<br />

Amy said being able to give<br />

back is a very important part of<br />

being a global citizen.<br />

“St Andrew’s in Tonga<br />

struggles to find enough money<br />

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

of the families are unemployed<br />

and because the school is funded<br />

from fees, this means there isn’t<br />

enough money for even the<br />

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

needs,” she said.<br />

Popular food at the lunch<br />

included chocolate and fruit<br />

waffles, Japanese rice balls and<br />

the Thai jelly.<br />

Ploy Kriangkriwakin and<br />

classmate Ploy Laolerchai were<br />

keeping the secret recipe for<br />

their fun-shaped Thai jellies<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

BIG APPLE: India Borelli,<br />

originally from New York,<br />

made pretzel sticks for the<br />

international food day. ​<br />

under wraps.<br />

“There’s coconut and, well<br />

that’s all I can say really,” said<br />

Ploy.<br />

“It’s sweet and delicious that’s<br />

for sure.”<br />

India Borelli, originally from<br />

New York, made pretzel sticks,<br />

clearly a nod to her birthplace.<br />

During International Week,<br />

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

High School and another<br />

fundraiser is planned before the<br />

end of the year.<br />

RESTING: The group went to the high ropes course in<br />

Southshore to face their fears.<br />

Holiday fun for youths<br />

CHILDREN attending Papanui<br />

Expertise Built On Family Heritage<br />

For Christchurch real estate agent<br />

Pip Sutton, real estate is a family<br />

heritage spanning four generations<br />

over approximately 93 years.<br />

It all started with her great-grandfather<br />

Frederick in 1924, out of Lyttelton. Her<br />

grandfather, Fred, continued working in<br />

Lyttelton, setting up an office in London<br />

Street, which still stands today.<br />

Pip’s father Dave became a partner in Simes<br />

real estate in Christchurch in the early 1970s<br />

until 2005 when it was sold for retirement<br />

purposes. From the age of just 18 months Pip<br />

became part of it, with many early memories<br />

of attending property auctions, visiting<br />

building sites and regular office visits where<br />

the auction gavel and lectern were often<br />

used as play toys.<br />

“I grew up in the business,” she says. “During<br />

school holidays I worked in Dad’s office. I<br />

spent a lot of time relieving as receptionist,<br />

in accounts and assisting putting marketing<br />

packages and the likes together, oh and lots<br />

of Sunday drives around new developments<br />

within the city and Lyttelton Harbour with<br />

the family.”<br />

On leaving school Pip gained a Bachelor<br />

of Commerce & Management degree with<br />

a marketing major. She gained valuable<br />

experience and skills working as a top sales<br />

and marketer for multi-national market<br />

leaders within New Zealand and the UK.<br />

In 2005, Pip returned to Christchurch to<br />

commence her real estate career under the<br />

guidance and wisdom of her father.<br />

“This involved long hours of intensive<br />

learning. He passed on an in-depth<br />

understanding of Christchurch’s land and<br />

development right through from the early<br />

Lyttelton days. This included understanding<br />

district plans, zoning, the development<br />

process. How to research properties deeply<br />

to uncover potentials for new owners. How<br />

to listen to people and respond to their needs.<br />

“He passed on that little bit of magic,<br />

which had been handed down from three<br />

previous generations of learnings from great<br />

depressions, World Wars and within my<br />

career, the Global Financial Crisis and pre<br />

and post earthquake environments.”<br />

In 2014, Pip joined Ray White Real Estate,<br />

because she liked their in-depth attention to<br />

real estate law and management style at the<br />

Cashmere office, plus being a family brand<br />

itself spanning back to the early 1900s, she<br />

recognised the more caring nature of the<br />

brand, perhaps due to over <strong>10</strong>0 years of<br />

learnings being passed down too.<br />

“You are working with people during a<br />

milestone time in their life, they are often<br />

already under stress. A real estate agent’s job<br />

is to assist in relieving the stress, not adding<br />

to it.”<br />

Pip has become a successful and highly<br />

regarded real estate salesperson across<br />

the city. For her, the most enjoyable and<br />

important part of the process is to spend<br />

time with both buyers and sellers, using<br />

her in-depth knowledge of the Canterbury<br />

property environment to assist in achieving<br />

the best possible outcome for her clients.<br />

As she puts it: “My measure of success is the<br />

quality of the results I achieve for my clients,<br />

not the number of houses I sell. I would<br />

rather take more time getting my client into<br />

a better position than collecting listings and<br />

making quick sales.”<br />

Love your dentures<br />

Is it time to swap your generic denture appearance<br />

for a beautiful, natural looking smile?<br />

Internationally renowned dental<br />

technician Richard Greenlees,<br />

PGDipCDTech (University of Otago) of<br />

Lovebite is the person to call.<br />

His special point of difference is<br />

rebuilding what he calls the Oral<br />

Architecture, the structure and shape of<br />

a patient’s face that is often lost following<br />

years of wearing dentures.<br />

Lovebite dentures address problems<br />

that can arise due to years of the patient<br />

wearing incorrectly fitting or poorly<br />

functioning dentures, such as poor<br />

occlusion (the way the teeth come<br />

together), aesthetics, function and<br />

hygiene.<br />

An intricate knowledge and<br />

understanding of facial features allows<br />

Richard to return facial tissues back to the<br />

correct position, reform lips, and restore<br />

beauty and confidence.<br />

Richard provides a friendly, discreet<br />

service and personally guides his patients<br />

through the transformation process to<br />

create teeth with small nuances in the<br />

fabrication, colour and shape.<br />

Carmen, a recent patient said in a<br />

thank you letter to Richard, “I highly<br />

recommend your craftsmanship to anyone<br />

wanting a natural looking smile. Because<br />

you do your work in front of your client,<br />

one is able to see how meticulous and<br />

dedicated you are to ending up with a top<br />

class result. My dentures are amazing.<br />

They look like one’s own natural teeth. So<br />

much time, effort and energy went into<br />

the end result. Simply the best.”<br />

Richard’s patients have varying needs,<br />

from full denture replacement, to first<br />

time immediate dentures, implant<br />

supported dentures and metal partial<br />

dentures.<br />

Since he started making teeth in<br />

1980 Richard has travelled extensively,<br />

accumulating vast knowledge through<br />

training and working in Japan, and<br />

running his own practice in the<br />

prestigious Harley Street, London for 15<br />

years. He continues to teach his world<br />

leading techniques globally.<br />

Richard also creates porcelain crowns<br />

and veneers, working with like-minded<br />

dental professionals.<br />

A beautiful new Lovebite smile<br />

resembles nature and reflects the patient’s<br />

character. It boosts confidence and helps<br />

patients to look and feel years younger.<br />

of stunning Lovebite dentures, visit<br />

BEFORE<br />

AFTER<br />

These before and after photographs<br />

perfectly highlight the facial<br />

rejuvenation that can be achieved<br />

with a Lovebite denture (right).<br />

The patient’s facial structure and<br />

shape have been restored, with her<br />

beautiful new smile transforming<br />

the way she looks and feels.<br />

True<br />

Who thought<br />

could look this<br />

natural?<br />

• Full dentures • Metal partial dentures<br />

• First-time immediate dentures • Implant supported dentures<br />

STUNNING: A beautiful new denture for<br />

a young female patient<br />

These stunning lovebite full upper and<br />

lower dentures have been expertly crafted by<br />

internationally-recognised dental technician<br />

Richard Greenlees at his Christchurch studio.<br />

The combination of Richard’s skill, experience<br />

(including 15 years in London’s prestigious<br />

Harley Street) knowledge and revolutionary<br />

techniques allow him to create beautiful<br />

bespoke false teeth that truly resemble those<br />

in nature and reflect each patient’s individuality<br />

and unique character.<br />

Pour into prepared cake tin<br />

Papanui<br />

High School<br />

As the weather gets warmer and the<br />

evenings get longer it is the ideal time to get<br />

out of the house and learn something new<br />

and meet some new people by taking part<br />

in one of the wide range of nightclasses on<br />

offer at Papanui High School for Term 4<br />

beginning from Tuesday 24 <strong>October</strong>.<br />

From Art to Yoga and everything in<br />

between we are sure regardless of your<br />

age or interest you will find something<br />

to tempt you. Classes at Papanui High<br />

School are held in a warm, friendly relaxed<br />

environment and our tutors are supportive<br />

and well qualified in their chosen fields.<br />

A new course on offer is Creative Candle<br />

Making which will teach you to create<br />

your own soy container candles and<br />

melts, either for yourself or ideal as a gift.<br />

Discover more about soy wax, fragrance,<br />

wick selection and trouble shooting<br />

commom candle making issues. This is a<br />

hands on course where you will make 3 full<br />

sized scented candles, 6 melts, 5 tea lights<br />

and 1 votive. The cost of all materials is<br />

included in the course fee. This course is<br />

being taught by Jane Alexander and will be<br />

held at Papanui High School on Saturday 4<br />

November between <strong>10</strong> am – 4 pm at a cost<br />

of $148.<br />

For further information and enrolment<br />

please visit our website on www.papanui.<br />

Ensuring a safe<br />

work place<br />

Learning first aid is not only a part of<br />

ensuring a safe work place, but also an<br />

integral part of our engagement with<br />

the wider community. We all learn the<br />

necessary skills to ensure that in times of<br />

emergency we are able to assist our work<br />

colleagues, but are we able to take these<br />

skills home, into the community or on to<br />

the sports field?<br />

Not all work places are the same and<br />

the injury risk for each place can be<br />

wide and variable. The office attended by<br />

administrators does not carry the same<br />

risk as those people working with heavy<br />

machinery, or perhaps at some distance<br />

from a regular ambulance service. It is<br />

therefore essential that you pick the right<br />

first aid course to suit all of your activities<br />

– both professional and social.<br />

Take, for example, an office worker who<br />

does not have a high risk work environment<br />

and whose concern might be to ensure<br />

that they can deal with minor cuts and<br />

superficial injuries, or the ability to perform<br />

effective CPR. These skills can be achieved<br />

on a course of eight hours duration and<br />

would generally fit into low to medium<br />

risk area. But take this same person on to<br />

a sports field either as a spectator or player<br />

when a higher level injury occurs. The<br />

eight hour course covering unit standards<br />

6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does<br />

not cover head neck and spinal injuries,<br />

eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings.<br />

The majority of injuries occur outside of<br />

the work place, in fact one in three injuries<br />

occurs in the home, making it the most<br />

common place for injuries to happen.<br />

New Zealand children are twice as likely<br />

to die through injury as children who live<br />

in Australia. They mostly die as a result<br />

of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the<br />

home. Fatalities from leisure and sport are<br />

not far behind those in the workplace.<br />

The wider 12 hour course teaches the<br />

additional unit standard 6400 and provides<br />

a wide knowledge base for medium to high<br />

risk environments. This course covers<br />

many of the skills required to deal with<br />

the most common injuries, such as falls<br />

(which can result in head, neck and spinal<br />

injuries) and dealing with complex scenes<br />

such as motor vehicle accidents.<br />

If you are not sure on the course best<br />

suited to your needs, ask your accredited<br />

first aid training provider. They can explain<br />

the course content and give you options<br />

that will best suit your needs. Look beyond<br />

the workplace and consider your family<br />

and your location. Check that you have a<br />

good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date<br />

with replenished items, and that everyone<br />

knows where it is located.<br />

Risingholme Community<br />

Centre Term 3<br />

Term 4 sees us continuing to offer<br />

a range of classes across the city at<br />

Risingholme Community Centre,<br />

Riccarton High School, Shirley Boys High<br />

School, Christchurch Girls High School<br />

and Hornby High School, many of which<br />

have become a tradition of Risingholme<br />

Community Centre programme. So what<br />

better way to prepare for summer than<br />

to get out and learn something new by<br />

enrolling in a course of interest – maybe<br />

something that you have tried before and<br />

want to explore further or perhaps you<br />

would like to try something new, or to<br />

meet new people with similar interests.<br />

It has been proven that Lifelong Learning<br />

has many benefits with the obvious ones<br />

being the continuation of a learning<br />

journey, learning a new skill, increased<br />

confidence, meeting new people and much<br />

more. Our full range of classes can be<br />

viewed on our website www.risingholme.<br />

org.nz<br />

Are you Digitally challenged in our<br />

ever changing digital world? Or if you<br />

are not familiar with using a computer,<br />

we offer classes on Computer Basics or<br />

maybe something more advanced such as<br />

Word, Excel or Photoshop. If you would<br />

like to know more about these or other<br />

classes that we are running, we would<br />

love to hear from, you can enrol via<br />

our website www.risingholme.org.<br />

New and exciting at Risingholme<br />

Community Centre is Zentangle.<br />

What is this you might say - well if<br />

you can’t sit still enough for yoga, or<br />

your mind wanders in meditation,<br />

or you would like a creative aspect to<br />

your mindfulness, this may work for<br />

you. This method of drawing does not<br />

require any previous drawing ability,<br />

it can be a 15 minute practice you can<br />

build into your everyday, or you can<br />

explore some of the more creative ways<br />

you can then use this design practise to<br />

make your own cards, images, or decorate<br />

Fast turnaround for<br />

minor panel repairs<br />

As we all know, having our car off the road for minor<br />

panel repairs can be frustrating, but for customers of<br />

SMART Repairs in Lichfield Street, it isn’t a problem.<br />

“With our focus on fast turnaround,<br />

getting customers back on the road<br />

as quickly as possible is the way we do<br />

business,” says owner Brian Caffell, who<br />

runs the long-established panel shop<br />

with his wife Maxine.<br />

In addition, customers have the<br />

benefit of a courtesy car, so they can stay<br />

on the road while their vehicle is in the<br />

workshop. There is also a free pick-up<br />

and delivery service available if required.<br />

Customers can be assured of topquality<br />

workmanship at SMART<br />

Repairs, with the workshop team having<br />

over 40 years’ industry experience<br />

between them, with services including<br />

panelbeating, spraypainting, paintless<br />

dent removal, (PDR) and mag wheel<br />

repairs and painting.<br />

As specialists in small to medium<br />

panel repair work, no job is too small for<br />

SMART Repairs, and with their friendly,<br />

personal approach they make it easy for<br />

customers who may be unsure what to<br />

do if their vehicle has been scratched or<br />

dented.<br />

The team also provides quotes for all<br />

insurance companies, and carry out<br />

those repairs quickly and efficiently.<br />

“We take pride in our work and ensure<br />

that our customers are happy with the<br />

results,” says Maxine.<br />

SMART Repairs are currently looking<br />

at expanding and incorporating a mobile<br />

division, so they can come to you for<br />

minor paint and interior trim repairs,<br />

PDR and mag wheel repairs.<br />

SMART Repairs is located at 272<br />

Lichfield Street, at the Fitzgerald<br />

Avenue end. Opening hours are<br />

Monday to Friday, 8am-4.30pm.<br />

LUTHER AND LLOYD:<br />

TWO OUTRAGEOUS HERETICS?<br />

SIX-WEEK COURSE<br />

This year marks the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther<br />

nailing his thesis to the church in his German town of<br />

Wittenberg (<strong>October</strong> 31). An action that unexpectedly<br />

sparked the Reformation. This year also celebrates the<br />

50th Anniversary of the heresy trial of Lloyd Geering<br />

here in Aotearoa New Zealand. An event that was most<br />

divisive for many of our churches.<br />

This course will examine the huge impact of the two<br />

men in their time, noting their significance for today.<br />

Attention will be drawn to the different theological<br />
