ST BEDE’S College will get its

$60 million revamp.

Resource consent has been

granted for the project which will

start next year.

Work includes replacing the

catholic school’s chapel and

Grimes Block classrooms, as well

as earthquake strengthening and

extending its performing arts

centre.

The college also has plans to

build a brand new 750m 2 sports

pavilion and gym, adjacent to the

existing hockey field.

But because the school is a

state integrated catholic school,

the Ministry of Education is not

funding the work.

The chapel will cost $3.5 million

and its construction will be

the first to begin next year.

The St Bede’s Old Boy’s Association

is rallying to raise $1.5

million, so the balance will be

met by a $1 million grant from

the Society of Mary and $1 million

from the school’s board of

proprietors insurance.

The college has been without a

chapel since 2012, converting an

old science building for masses.

The chapel was repaired following

the September 4, 2010,

earthquake but was ultimately

claimed by the February 22, 2011,

earthquakes after being deemed

irreparable.

“The proposed chapel has a

footprint of 425m 2 (excluding the

covered porch area) and a first

floor gallery area. It will provide

seating for up to 300 people,” the

plan submitted to the city council

said.

The modern building has been

designed by architects Wilkie

and Bruce to mirror the past but

also look to the future.

Expansions to the performing

arts centre, which will be beside

the new chapel, includes a new

foyer and toilet area.

It will take up part of the space

the assembly hall had occupied

before it was demolished. The rest

of that space will be taken up by

the new chapel.

EDITOR’S

DESK News................................3, 6-9

THE EARTHQUAKE took

care of a lot of old and historic

buildings, and St Bede’s College

wasn’t spared either.

As we reveal today on page 1,

resource consent has been granted

for the school’s $60 million

revamp. It will start next year and

will give the school a very modern

look.

Some of the old buildings that

weren’t affected by the quake will

stay so the connection to the past

will remain.

A lot of work for builders, roofers,

carpet layers, plumbers . . .

and that can’t be bad for the local

economy.

Marist Albion’s Daniel Fransen

was named men’s sevens player of

the year at the recent Canterbury

rugby awards evening (see page

14). Fransen had an outstanding

season with the Canterbury side,

scoring 12 tries and also kicking

goals.

Fletcher backs Cranford St businesses

Opposition to

Northern Arterial

plan is building

• By Julia Evans

CONSTRUCTION giant

Fletcher Building has mirrored

the concerns of small businesses

on Cranford St over Northern

Arterial plans.

Last month Nor’West News

revealed Small World Preschool

and Nursery and the Cranford

Ale House fear they will have to

shut their doors if designs for the

Northern Arterial go ahead as

currently planned.

All on-street parking will

be lost when cycleways are put

in on either side of the road

between McFaddens Rd and the

rural zone.

Fletcher Building, which owns

PlaceMakers and Mico Plumbing

on Cranford St, is worried

about the current designs affecting

its businesses.

In a statement, Fletcher Building

said it participated in the

public submission process with

the city council and took the

previous plan to the Environment

Court last year.

“We signed-off on an agreed

plan through an Environment

BUSINESS WOES: Andrew Norton and Sue and Keith

Wayman believe their Cranford St businesses will be badly

affected by the city council’s Northern Arterial plan.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Court mediation process.”

But it said a recent version of

the plan it had received includes

a variation regarding parking.

“We are looking to work

constructively with the city

council to ensure a satisfactory

outcome.”

Fletcher Building would not

say if it will take the city council

back to court if the initial

designs stamped by the Environment

Court were not followed.

City council acting manager

planning, delivery and transport

Mike Jacobson said the city

council is investigating whether

or not it is bound to the design

set by the court.

“The city council will respond

to the concerns raised when it

has completed its assessment

and met with the affected parties,”

he said.

Designs will be finalised by

Christmas, Mr Jacobson said.

Owner of Small World Preschool

and Nursery, Keith Wayman,

said he received a phone

call last week from Fletcher

Building asking how it could

help make sure on-street parking

was kept.

“Fletcher is not going to sit by

and watch its two businesses be

destroyed,” Mr Wayman said.

Cranford Ale House owner

Andrew Norton is meeting with

his lawyer and has been in contact

with Christchurch Central

MP and former lawyer Duncan

Webb.

Mr Wayman said the preschool

could not afford a lawyer

of its own, as it had already spent

“a few thousand” dollars getting

U-turning bays on Cranford

St included in the Northern

Arterial design.

NO CROSSING

Farrington Ave, Bishopdale,

will not get a pedestrian

crossing after a request to the

surveyed the area and found, on

average, there were two or three

pedestrians crossing between

Isleworth Rd and Vauxhall St

per hour. Staff said that was a

low rate compared to the rest of

the city.

The barbecue at Burnside Park,

Webb’s first day at

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A VET

NURSE AT McMASTER & HEAP

Its early morning and the HOSPITAL nurse is

already hard at work, caring for her sometimes

numerous & varied hospital patients who have

stayed the night.

She cuddles & chats away to them

reassuringly as if they were her own!

Some soiled patients are sponge bathed,

while other patients are syringe fed. She checks,

untwists and flushes IV catheters, administers

morning medications, fresh food & clean

bedding is lovingly placed! All observations are

recorded ready for the “Vet rounds”, just as in a

hospital!

The Vets at McMaster & Heap rely heavily on

the expertise and thoroughness of our nurses

to inform us with regards to the patients in

her care. The vets check over their patients,

authorize blood tests or radiographs, change

medication or nutrition plans and update the

owners.

Then its back to the hospital nurse to care

for the needs of these patients over the course

of the day, updating the vet, speaking to the

family members involved and organizing

visiting times. Excellent time management skills

are required to triage the sick arrivals through

the day and care for the already sick and injured.

Note taking and recording of medications given

is of utmost importance.

Meanwhile the doors have opened & the

RECEPTION nurse is cheerfully assisting the

receptionist, greeting a continuous stream

of pets and their owners arriving for today’s

appointments & procedures!

She expertly multi tasks while answering the

relentlessly ringing phones-today she will take

a huge number of calls with a wide variety of

questions. She must use her problem solving

skills to know when it is OK for a patient to

come in later in the day, or if in fact it may

require a much more urgent consult time.

The SURGICAL nurse gets ready for her

busy day ahead. Patients start arriving at 8am

for admittance and some days we have 4

vets operating and a list of over 15 surgical

procedures to work through. Every nurse has a

vet assigned to them to allow continuity of care.

She will talk kindly & soothingly to each

patient while efficiently placing IV catheters

& obtain blood and urine samples to run

diagnostic tests for the vet. She then calculates

and administers her patients pre anaesthetic

medications as instructed.

Anaesthetic machines must then be checked

& the surgical room fully equipped for the

variety of today’s procedures!

Once everything is ready, she will assist the

vet in the patients induction and intubation,

before swiftly attaching all monitoring

equipment, as well as manual checks. Once

happy the patient is stable, she sterile preps the

patients surgical site. She closely monitors the

patient through the entire procedure, alerting

the vet to any subtle changes in the patients

anaesthetic depth, blood pressure and more.

She carefully moves the patient over to a

cosy recovery bed, where the hospital nurse is

waiting to continue the post operative care.

Evening consults are arriving & reception is a

hype of activity. Phones are ringing constantly

& owners are arriving to pick up their animals

from surgery & hospital.

The reception nurse expertly talks to owners

experiencing a wide range of emotions, from

extreme sadness, stress, anxiety, to those who

are excited or just plain relieved to be able to

see their furry friend once more. She goes over

the large variety of discharge information that

the vets & nurses have carefully put aside for

their patients.

The hospital nurse kindly talks to worried

owners who are visiting their pets and updates

them on the vets plan for overnight care.

She carries out her final rounds and ensures

everyone gets a cuddle goodnight!

She assists the vet in preparing any extremely

unwell patients that require transfer to the after

hours clinic.

At 7pm the last consult has finished, and

the doors are closed! The nurses may still

be buzzing around for another hour or so,

depending on today’s work load. Although

sometimes they are totally exhausted (&

covered in various unidentified stains & smells!)

they go home to their own pets with a big

smile on their face. They know each day they

assist the vets in making a huge difference to

animals lives by putting 100% of time, love, care

& knowledge to ensure each furry patient and

it’s owner has had the best veterinary service

and care possible!!

McMaster & Heap

New Christchurch

Central MP Duncan

Webb may be busy

finding his way around

his new office in

Wellington but the

former lawyer has

issues he wants to

tackle in his electorate

I am very proud and excited to be

the new member of parliament for

Christchurch Central.

The city has huge opportunities ahead

of it and I am looking forward to being

part of seizing them.

I think there are three simple things

we need to keep in mind when ensuring

that the city moves in the right direction:

People, homes, and incomes – and they

are all closely related.

We want to make sure that all of our

neighbourhoods and communities are

great places to live.

This will mean working at every level to

ensure they are safe and able to be enjoyed

by everyone.

Some things need to be addressed by

central Government – like providing a

comprehensive solution for those who are

without a home of any kind.

Others will require working with

the city council – like ensuring that

community hubs and shopping

centres are attractive, accessible and

usable.

Of course in the central city, we need

to complete the people-focussed facilities

like the library and the metro sports

facility.

Homes are a really significant issue

in Christchurch, though perhaps in a

different kind of way than elsewhere.

One thing I would love to see and

encourage is genuinely affordable homes

within the inner city for a mix of young

people, families and older people.

That will be essential to making the city

vibrant and successful.

Great public parks, spaces and facilities

will assist with this – as will the new retail

and hospitality projects.

the Beehive

Our houses need to be of a

good quality. The first earthquake

was now more than seven

years ago, but many houses

are not repaired, or have been

repaired poorly.

I know how stressful this can

be, so I look forward to advocating

for a prompt settlement of

outstanding EQC and insurance

claims and defective repairs

being addressed properly.

Connected to this is ensuring

that the city is a great place to

work and do business. We need

to do this by ensuring that our

city has great infrastructure,

and that the people who live

here have the knowledge and

skills needed.

This will be important to

make sure we have jobs and

prosperous businesses that provide

a good income to everyone.

I know it’s going to be a huge

challenge being the MP for

Christchurch Central, and I am

really looking forward to it.

I am available to discuss any

issues that you may be having

– just email me at Duncan.

FIRST DAY: Duncan Webb takes a selfie at his first

Parliamentary briefing after taking a taxi to the Beehive on a

typical Wellington day (right).

Readers respond to the

news Chaneys Corner

(above) is getting an

upgrade after 19 fatal

accidents over a six-year

period

Jeff Bell – The corner has

been like that since the motorway

went through back in late 1969-

70. The railway line has taken a

few lives as well. I know three

people that have died on it.

Kate Marshall – About time!

I’ve had a few close calls when

people don’t know how an intersection

with one stop and one

giveway sign works.

Yvonne Pender – Add to

that the number of people that

get distracted with the so called

art work. How many of the accidents

relate to that.

Wal Thomas – And I hope

they remove those dodgy lights at

the Smiths motorway off ramp.

Pamela Neil – Should have

been years ago . . . bit late for

those families now.

Theresa Walsh – Hopefully

they will take into account my

submission for a turning lane for

traffic coming down Marshland

Rd from Kaiapoi into Spencerville

Rd. It would also help the

businesses there.

Readers respond to

the news that Fendalton

residents are getting a new

pump station to return the

water supply to pre-quake

levels

Jake Ranginui – Why are

so many people complaining?

Boohoo out east blah blah . . .

they can’t fix everything at once.

It isn’t the labour or money.

Someone is getting their water

fixed to pre-quake standards. We

should celebrate it. The pump

stations in the east were repaired

well before this happened, just as

an example.

Dawn Hanara – The northwest

of Christchurch had a D

grading for water quality thanks

to the 22 shallow bores in the

area. Everyone should have clean,

safe drinking water, no matter

the area.

Cath Milio – Meanwhile, on

the east side, sick of sewerage

lapping round our ankles every

time the river bursts its banks.

It’s happened every year since

the quake, three times in one

year. As people are flooded in,

watching faeces and toilet paper

float past, or bailing it out of their

lounges, the other side of town

will be happily enjoying their

new water supply.

NOR’WEST NEWS

News

• By Julia Evans

INITIAL DESIGNS for the third

southbound lane across the

Waimakariri River have been

released.

The designs went before the

city council’s greater Christchurch

partnership committee last

Friday after the lane received the

final seal of approval by Environment

Canterbury.

It has been designed for high

occupancy vehicles only and

includes a clip-on cycleway in a

bid to reduce morning congestion

of motorists from North

Canterbury entering the city.

But when releasing the images

to Nor’West News a New Zealand

Transport Agency spokeswoman

said the drawings have not been

finalised, they are only conceptual

designs.

Detailed designs are now being

completed.

Work is set to be done in conjunction

with current construction

on the Northern Corridor to

reduce costs from $34 million to

$20 million.

However, the lane has been a

contentious issue for residents in

Papanui, Belfast and St Albans

who fear it will only increase

congestion in the suburbs.

On the residents’ behalf, the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board has been staunchly opposed

to the lane.

It tried and failed several times

to put a stop to the lane and

encourage investigations into

light rail.

CONCEPT:

The third

southbound

lane

over the

Waimakariri

River

includes

a high

occupany

vehicle

lane and

cycleway. ​

Bridge concept drawings released

After ECan approved the plan,

the board posted on its Papanui-

Innes Community Board Facebook

page: “Sorry, we tried.”

But on the other side of the

bridge, residents from North

Canterbury were overwhelmingly

supportive of the lane in

public submissions to ECan.

Of the 177 submissions received,

86.5 per cent supported

the proposal.

“It’s a good result for commuters

who use the bridge heading

into the city,” acting Waimakariri

Mayor Neville Atkinson said.

Mr Atkinson said improvements

that ease motorway

congestion will further enhance

Waimakariri as a location for

residential and business opportunities.

Papanui hip hop crew

step up to battle world

A PAPANUI hip-hop dance

group has flown to the

The group’s members, Nekholas

Thursday with an introduction

and workshop, followed by the

heats on Friday and semi-finals

and finals on Saturday.

The group will go up against

stiff competition with squads

from 16 countries around the

world set to compete.

Aperture won its spot in the

world championships after

taking out the junior section at

the Hip Hop Unite NZ national

championships in Wellington.

Since winning their place,

the group has been squeezing

in time to fundraise on top of

school work and daily training

sessions. They have held pizza

nights, variety concerts, workshops,

hosted KidsFest events

and sold cheese rolls and raffle

tickets to raise enough money

for the plane tickets and accommodation.

Zion Dance Studios mega

Fire rages, homes at risk

KEYSTONE: The

Neighbourhood

Trust in Mairehau

has thanked the

Papanui-Innes

Community

Board for an

increase in its

funding.

Neighbourhood Trust

grateful for funding hike

A MAIREHAU trust has applauded the

Papanui-Innes Community Board for

increasing its grant by almost $15,000

a year in spite of a cut to the board’s

funding pot.

Neighbourhood Trust manager

Ginny Larsen thanked the board for the

money which was approved as part of

the strengthening communities grant

programme.

The organisation received $67,499 per

year for the next three years compared to

$53,000 for the previous two.

However, the increase comes as the

board has been hit with an $85,000 cutback

from its 2015-16 funding pool.

“I know you had some difficult decisions

to make and more limited funds

than usual, so we are very grateful for

these funds and feel humbled by this decision,”

Ms Larsen said.

The money will go towards offering

“consistent, community-led work”, she

said.

That includes programmes and support

for older residents and families, running

the Mairehau newsletter, exercise classes,

community days, free English as a second

language classes, and inclusive holiday

programmes for children with disabilities.

“Having three-year funding means we

can plan for the future. It is energising,

empowering and results in less time spent

in applying for funds and more time

making things happen,” Ms Larsen said.

ADVERTORIAL

Place your feet in the

hands of the professionals

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.

Ian specialises in ingrowing toenail

surgery to cure the problem.

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 make foot orthotics here at the

clinic,” Ian says. “Anyone with heel

pain, sore bunions, sore arches, flat

feet and lower leg pain can be treated

with foot orthotics.”

As Ian explains, foot orthotics are

special insoles that support the arches

of the feet, helping you walk better and

alleviating pain. This can help stabilise

the feet and can contribute to fall

prevention.

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.“We also advise on

the right footwear for children, and

help them with stretching programmes

to relieve tight muscles.”

• The Papanui Foot Clinic is

located at 448 Papanui Road,

Monday to Friday, 9am-5.30pm

with evening clinics on Tuesdays

and Thursday till 7.30pm.

Milestone for MeNZ shed

• By Julia Evans

BLOKES, BEERS and a barbecue

– that’s how the Bishopdale MeNZ

Shed celebrated its third birthday.

Shed co-ordinator Richard Rendle

said more than 50 people gathered

at the Kendal Ave site for the celebrations.

And a hardware firm, Comac,

from Palmerston North provided

the club with a cake and birthday

candles to mark the milestone.

The group meet twice weekly and

retreat to the “man cave”, working

on projects to benefit the wider

community.

Mr Rendle, who has been a member

for “most” of the three years

said the club is about getting men

involved in the community.

“We’ve had people who have

come and said they’ve retired and

basically they’re depressed and say

this is the best thing that could have

happened,” he said.

Mr Rendle said during the three

years there have been many projects

the club has enjoyed working on

from planter boxes for retirement

villages, window seats for Women’s

Refuge and coffins for stillborn

babies.

“But the penguin boxes we made

for the International Antarctic

Centre was something which caught

people’s imaginations,” he said.

HANDY MEN: Neil McNabb,

“A possible location for a new

Marist Albion sevens star takes award

SPORTS

MARIST Albion’s Daniel

Fransen was named men’s

sevens player of the year at the

recent Canterbury rugby awards

evening.

He was one of a number of

recipients at the awards last week

at The Piano Centre for Music

and the Arts. Fransen took out

the award after an outstanding

spring sevens series and season

with the Canterbury sevens team.

He scored 12 tries during the

campaign and showed adept

goal-kicking abilities to finish

with 118 points for the season, 44

of which were scored at nationals.

Fransen was also selected in

the New Zealand development

team.

Other award recipients:

•Christchurch’s William

Tucker, under-19 player

of the year – The young

lock was recognised for his

diverse skill set, aerial ability

and important set-piece

contribution, but he also has a

significant role off the playing

field as a leader within the

group. He accumulated an

impressive amount of time

on the paddock this year,

having played every minute

of every game throughout the

representative season.

•Christchurch’s Lucy

Anderson and Lincoln’s

Rebecca Todd, joint women’s

players of the year award –

Anderson pairs solid defence

with an intelligent attacking

mindset and strong ball

carrying skills, and exhibits

great leadership in the

Canterbury backline.

Todd, who is equally as

prominent on defence and

attack, has played at both

No 8 and hooker already

this season. She inspires

others with her consistently

high work rate, on-field

organisation and ability to

read the game.

•Canterbury University’s

Sam Godwin, Canterbury

development player of the

year – His unquenchable

thirst for work saw him

regularly feature at the high

end of individual tackle

counts, and his capacity for

repeated efforts at a high

intensity almost seems

endless.

•TeRauoriwa Gapper,

women’s sevens player of

the year – Her fitness, speed

and physicality make her

an ideal sevens player, and

she possesses a high work

rate, aptitude on defence

and the esteemed ability to

beat defenders one-on-one.

As captain, Gapper led the

team to the South Island

regional title, as well as the

national tournament, and

always features prominently

whenever she wears the red

and black jersey.

•Lincoln’s Nick Werahiko,

Maori player of the year – He

was recently awarded his

division one 100-game blazer

for his club and was named

Waitaha captain for the

second year. He also featured

in the Canterbury A side on

a number of occasions this

season.

•Richie Mo’unga, Canterbury

rugby supporters club player

of the year – The first fiveeighth

has had an outstanding

success rate with the boot

this season and is one of

the leading point scorers

to date in the Mitre 10 Cup

competition. Mo’unga shows

composure and maturity

beyond his 23 years as he

directs play from the cutter.

•Prebbleton life member

Tony Grimwood, volunteer

of the year for 38-years of

commitment to the club

– There is no job too big or

small for ‘Grimmy’. “It’s a

great club with great people.

So it is quite easy to see why

the years have flown by,” he

said.

Kendo team fights way to

second at national champs

LOCAL KENDO exponents

have performed well in a national

championship.

Kirk Reyes, Yuma Tamaki,

both of Edgeware, and Merivale’s

Masa Matsunami finished

second at the Rembuden

Taikai kendo competition in

Wellington, which featured

about 60 fighters from around

the country.

They fight for the Sei Tou Ken

Yu Kai Canterbury Kendo Club.

Kendo is the Japanese martial

art of sword fighting in which

competitors score by hitting their

opponent’s hand, torso or head.

The nail-biting final of the

team’s open event is one the

competitors will not forget.

Tamaki said he couldn’t believe

the team made it into the final

against Auckland’s Daehan

Mudo Kwan team, which included

two senior New Zealand

team members.

“At first I was scared of versing

them, but after we did our team

huddle, all our feelings became

one and we were able to do our

best against them,” Tamaki said.

Reyes said preparing for the

final meant thinking about all

the things he had learnt over the

past few years.

“I thought about all of the tips

and advice I received from my

peers and teachers and thought

GREAT EFFORT: Kirk Reyes, Yuma Tamaki, Masa Matsunami

about what my best result is and

the things I’m most confident

about in my kendo,” he said.

Fellow club member and

Cashmere High student Kai

Edwards travelled to the event

as well and won the men’s junior

dan title.

Club coach Blake Bennett said

he was pleased to see the club do

so well at the national event.

“The team has put in an

enormous amount of preparation

on and off the dojo floor. They

set goals, developed their

communication skills and

focused on strategy. The result

was a group of confident young

athletes with a very bright

future,” he said.​

The club’s four female

competitors Natsuko Saito, Ria

Ellin, Hana Suzuki and Tania

both the individual and team

events.

Fire rages, homes at risk

FLAME FILES

City raining

cats and dogs

• By Mark Thomas – specialist fire

investigator

I SUPPOSE you could say last

week it rained cats and dogs in

Christchurch.

Well, one of each was rescued by

fire crews from under a school in

Phillipstown and from a stormwater

drain in Woolston respectively.

That was early in a week which

had a bit of everything for firefighters.

A hang glider pilot was carried

out to Summit Rd with leg injuries

from a crash.

This type of incident is a valid reason

why I prefer Air New Zealand

and a professional pilot before I go

too far off the ground.

Five people were treated for smoke

inhalation when a clothes drier

ignited in Rochester St, Linwood,

and two more when the Belfast

Playcentre caught on fire at a child’s

party.

As I’ve said a hundred times your

health and your safety are more

important than any building. Fire

smoke is not good for you. Get out,

shut the door and ring 111.

Our troops have protective

clothing, breathing apparatus and

training.

Papanui butchery went mobile

Papanui Heritage Group

archivist Christine Grant

writes about the history of

a Papanui butchery

In the days when most

married women were fulltime

housewives and owning

a refrigerator was a luxury

beyond most families, meat was

generally purchased by women

who walked to the nearest

butchery several times a week.

One such business with a long

history in Papanui was situated

at 14 North Rd, opposite the end

of what is now Winston Ave.

In the 1880s, this shop had

been owned and operated by

different members of the Ford

family until the late 1920s when

it was acquired by Arthur Taylor.

He was succeeded by Stan

Priest in the early 1930s until

1936 when the business was

purchased by ST Gibson.

Although the shop was located

in the middle of the traditional

Papanui village area, Mr Gibson

changed its name to the Waimairi

Butchery, possibly because

at this time part of Papanui was

still administered by the Waimairi

County Council.

In August 1936, Mr Gibson

advertised “quality mutton” for

HISTORY: In 1940, Jim Southen bought the Waimairi Butchery and his sons ran a home

three and a half pence (three

cents) per pound if a side or

quarter was purchased, although

such a quantity could have

overtaxed the capacity of the

standard shopping basket.

Gibson had 100 carcasses to

sell at this special price.

In another advertisement he

stated: “We are prepared to sell

cheaper mutton than anywhere

else in Canterbury. Hotels and

restaurants specially catered for.”

In 1940, Jim Southen bought

the business for ₤300. Two of his

sons, Sid and Reg, worked for

their father who also ran a home

delivery service in the Papanui,

Bryndwr and Belfast areas,

utilising a box on the back of the

family Buick.

The vehicle was later replaced

by a van strikingly emblazoned

with the name of the business on

the sides.

In 1957 or 1958, another son,

Fred, took over the shop.

A butcher’s shop in this period

would have displayed the carcasses

of mutton, pork and beef

hanging from hooks on a rail

so that they could be easily slid

along when the customer asked

for a particular cut of meat.

HOME & HEATING

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,

most homes include at least one heat pump,

if not a whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more

convenient than a log burner as you just need

to press a button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right sized heat

pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort

levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional advice from heat

pump experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it

is important to select the correct size for your

requirements that will handle the job but not

be unnecessarily overpowered.

Secondly, the location of your heat pump

is also extremely important. The cheapest

installation is a back to back where the outdoor

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor

unit however this is not necessarily always

the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

A large wooden block was

located at the end of the counter.

The floor was usually covered

in sawdust in an attempt to prevent

slipping by using a natural

material that could be easily

disposed.

Children loved to scuff their

feet through the sawdust and to

draw pictures in it.

It appears that the last owner

of the butchery at 14 North Rd

was LJ (Larry) Salt, who operated

the business under his own

name from 1963-1966.

•References: Wises

Directories

Choosing the right heat

pump for your home

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of

systems and price, so it depends on your

application as to which will be most suitable.

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are

all reliable brands backed up by good technical

after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but

also validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

Heating is a major investment in your home

and it is vital to get the right advice.

installation and servicing of all major brands

Physical Sense supports senior well-being

Eight yEars ago, the Physical sense

gym and Physio in sydenham, created a

program to help stroke survivors. Their

specialised exercise program is based

on the work of the Burwood stroke

rehabilitation team.

Participants were so happy with the

classes and the benefits they experienced

that it has now grown to four classes

each week. New classes have also been

added to be effective for those who have

suffered from Osteoporosis, intermittent

Claudication, and Diabetes. On top of

that they also run four weekly classes

for seniors. These weekly rehabilitation

and injury prevention classes can lead to

continued gym membership at a reduced

cost. Participants may also be eligible for

a WiNZ subsidy to pay for the continued

gym membership.

Join one of the classes and increase

your strength and mobility or just come

in to find out more about what assistance

is available for you.

it all starts with a free assessment

on Monday at 11.30 am where an

experienced physiotherapist will assess

your situation and advise you on the most

appropriate exercise group with the aim to

enable you to keep living as independently

as possible.

Life can get tougher as we get older,

and it’s often easy to think that we should

simply struggle on. yet a huge range of

services are available to make life easier.

Because these services are sometimes
