Trees given a reprieve by court

Work on

Northern

Corridor

delayed

• By Julia Evans

NORTHERN Corridor work is

on hold after a court order was

taped to trees on Cranford St.

Last Monday, Small World

Preschool and Nursery owners

Keith and Sue Wayman attached

the Environment Court ruling

from Fletcher Building Ltd

against the city council to two

trees that were about to be cut

down.

They also taped on a sign that

read: “This tree is protected by a

court order.”

“We laminated the court order

to the trees and the workers

took off like scolded cats,” Mr

Wayman said.

He said the trees, which were

supposed to be removed as part

of the Northern Corridor upgrade,

were still there yesterday.

Treetech was contracted to

remove the trees by the city

council. It would not comment

on the matter.

Mr Wayman said it was not

Treetech’s fault as it was only doing

the work of the city council

and the New Zealand Transport

Agency, which he would lodge

formal complaints to.

He said the work was in breach

of the order from last December,

which includes judge-approved

designs for the stretch of road

along Cranford St between Mc-

Faddens Rd and the rural zone.

In October Nor’West News

reported businesses including

the nursery, The Cranford Ale

House and PlaceMakers are

unhappy the city council has

proposed Northern Corridor

designs that do not match that

ruling.

“I think we’ve caused enough

fuss for them to take us seriously,”

he said.

The design includes cycle lanes

that take away all on-street parking,

which Mr Wayman said

would put them out of business.

“The judge made the designs

very clear . . . and we’re not asking

The city council is expected to

CHRISTMAS MIGHT be right on

the radar but there’s another big event

looming too – the City2Surf.

Yep, it’s only a handful of months away

(see page 4) so it’s time to start lacing up

those running shoes and pounding the pavement or local park

to get in some sort of shape.

The great thing about the City2Surf – and this hasn’t

changed over the decades – is that anyone regardless of shape

or fitness level can take part.

A face that will appear on the marketing of City2Surf this

year is Jesel Royokada, a Fijian pastor.

And remember it’s a family event – children 10 and under

are free to participate.

Native bush plan mooted

• By Julia Evans

MORE THAN 150 years

after its last tree was chopped

down, Papanui Bush may be

reinstated.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board is looking to regenerate

the forest that took up 36ha

between what is now Papanui

High School

and Vagues Rd

in 1850.

The modern

native forest

plan is

proposed for

Bridgestone

Reserve on

Mike Davidson

Langdons Rd.

It would make

it only the second in the city

alongside Riccarton Bush.

City councillor Mike Davidson

said he is pushing for the

project to create a native bush

in his ward that the community

can be proud of.

“If we can reclaim a bit of history

in Papanui, that would be a

really good thing . . . but it’s got

to be done properly,” he said.

It will be a huge recreational

attraction for the community,

which would be involved in the

planting of the bush, as well as

providing habitats for native

bird and encourage growth in

NATIVE: The possibility of rejuvenating Papanui Bush, which was cut down more than 150 years

ago is being investigated.

population, Cr Davidson

said.

It was one most significant

landmarks the settlers saw as

they walked over the Port Hills

to establish Christchurch but the

land was divided in a ballot and

the trees were felled.

According to a paper by the

Papanui Heritage Group the

bush was made of totara, rimu,

kahikatea and matai. The last

totara tree was cut down in 1861,

years after the rest of the bush

was gone.

Bridgestone Reserve is a bit

smaller than Cr Davidson was

hoping for. But he said he could

work with it.

A city council feasibility report

will come back from staff later in

the week so the board can work

on submitting a proposal for the

Long Term Plan.

Cr Davidson said it would

only need a start up capital of

about $10,000. “I’m hoping to

find some money in this year’s

budget for it,” he said.

A project like this would take

a lot of time for the trees to develop,

so he wants to get it under

way as soon as possible.

TREE REMOVAL

Fifty-five eucalyptus and pine

trees will be removed from

Belfast’s Styx Mill Conservation

Reserve to enable planting of

native trees. Following the

removal of the trees, the area will

be replanted with1200 native

trees and shrubs including 60

totara and matai. A number of the

existing pine trees will be retained

to provide habitats for cavitynesting

native birds.

FLORAL THEFTS

The Friends of Abberley Park

group has taken to posting

pictures of the plants whose

flowers have been cut and

removed from the park on its

Facebook page to shame the

“vandals” that do it. The most

recent incident saw a peony rose

bush lose more than 35 flowers

and another lose 12. “Shame

on these thieving vandals,” the

Facebook post said.

SAFETY IMPROVED

A $76,000 pedestrian island is

being put in near Cotswold School

on Gardiners Rd and Fairford St

to increase safety after calls from

the community. The location

will provide a safe crossing point

for all pedestrians, although a

city council pedestrian survey

found the majority of pedestrians

crossing were Cotswold pupils.

Getting into the spirit of

• By Andrew King

JESEL ROYOKADA embodies

everything that is the Star Media

City2Surf.

Last year he was photographed

leaping into the air after crossing

the line capturing the spirit of the

event.

Now, the Christchurch Fijian

Seventh-Day Adventist Church

pastor has asked his congregation

of about 80 to get involved in the

event as a way to connect with

other cultures.

“We come from the islands and

sometimes we do things in our

own island groups but it is good

to get involved with the rest of

the community,” he said.

The 31-year-old encouraged

about 25 of his parishioners to

get involved in the event last year

“It was the first time our

church has got involved with

something like this,” he said.

He said they were told

about the event by Healthy

Families Christchurch, part

of a nationwide Government

initiative ​aimed at helping New

Zealanders live healthy, active

lives.

“I would like to see all 80 of

them out there, and their friends

and families. We can even have

kids in prams at the event,” he

said.

He said they will start to train

soon for the event, which will be

held on March 18.

The event is split into two

sections – 6km and 14km.

The Star Media City2Surf with

Les Mills 14km event starts in

Centennial Park, Spreydon, at

9am.

The Sport Canterbury 6km

event starts at 10am in Hansen

Public in roading discussions

FENDALTON residents will

Call to

investigate

cycling initiative

• By Julia Evans

Fire rages, homes at risk

CONCERNS HAVE been

raised over publicity of a cycling

initiative at Jellie Park Sports and

Recreation Centre.

Staff at the centre not knowing

about the initiative at all, and a

lack of advertising, has prompted

the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board to

ask city council staff investigate

urgently.

The campaign to get less people

driving to Jellie Park in a bid

to clear the congested car park

means if you cycle five times, you

receive free pool entry and a bottle

of water.

The initiative was first run in

February with only a “small to

moderate uptake,” city council

western area operations manager

Martin McGregor said.

It was recommended the

programme be dropped. But a

second campagin, running from

now through summer, was called

for by the board as it said a longer

trial was necessary for a greater

uptake. As well as being in warmer

months when more people are

likely to cycle.

It was previously suggested that

the scheme would be rolled out

across all city council sport and

recreation centres.

Chance to

reconnect with

school before

demolition

• By Julia Evans

FORMER BISHOPDALE School

pupils have been invited to visit

one last time.

The school’s 60-year-old buildings

are being demolished during

the school holidays as work begins

on the $4.38 million rebuild.

Principal Sue Fisher said anyone

who wants to go back, take photos

and visit the classrooms is more

than welcome.

“People from Bishopdale seem

to live in this area forever,” she

said.

She said there is a huge community

connection in the suburb,

especially as its going through a

regeneration with the new library

and redevelopment of the mall.

Demolishing the first block will

begin in January, with the new

building beginning construction

in March and the rebuild expected

to finish late next year.

“They [the Ministry of Education]

want to have it done in the

holidays because it’s not desirable

to have children and asbestos in

the same space,” Mrs Fisher said.

Anyone who wants to go

through the school has until December

15. Phone the school on

352 9354 to arrange a time.

RIDING ITS recent wave of

success, the film A Perfect Child

has brought home two more

awards for its St Margaret’s and

Christ’s College producers.

The 18min short film, written

and produced by St Margaret’s

and Christ’s College students

Nina Hogg and Simon Brown

won Best New Zealand Film

and Best Secondary School Film

awards at the Uni Shorts Film

Festival at the end of November.

This year’s line-up saw 36

finalists from New Zealand, the

United States, Israel, Australia,

Switzerland, Germany, Spain

and the Netherlands across six

categories with the winners

being named at the opening

night of the festival at Unitec in

Auckland.

The judging panel included

award-winning filmmaker Alyx

Duncan, renowned actress,

writer and director Aidee Walker

and internationally acclaimed

animator Katie Naeher.

They praised the film for its

strong premise and depth of

talent.

The festival is a platform for

for emerging student filmmakers

and screening of selected new

student film work – the biggest

film festival of its type in Australasia.

A Perfect Child is the work of

around 60 students from the two

schools and tells the story of Ava,

a young girl in an orphanage

who comes to realise that fellow

orphans are being cloned to create

perfect children.

The film took a year to make

with students involved in every

aspect of production, including

writing, directing, casting,

costuming and post-production,

School zone not likely to expand

• By Julia Evans

CHILDREN LIVING less than

2km from Redwood primary

are not guaranteed entry to the

school.

And the Ministry of Education

has vetoed a call from the school

to change that.

Principal John

Stackhouse said

in the process of

the Prestons Rd

school’s $4.9 million

rebuild, the

ministry rejected

Katrina

Casey

a request for an

expansion to the

enrolment zone.

It also wants the

roll to be cut by about 40 pupils.

Without an increase to the

tight admission zone, Mr Stackhouse

said children who live less

than a 90sec car ride away from

the school are not guaranteed a

place.

They have to go through the

ballot system, which does not

take proximity to the school into

consideration.

“We actually have the smallest

zone in the city,” he said, which

is encased in a few blocks around

Daniels Rd, Main North Rd, Prestons

Rd and Willowview Drive.

Said board of trustees chairwoman

Ana Connor: “It doesn’t

feel right to turn local children

away.”

Mrs Connor said the school

has had several meetings with

the ministry and informal meetings

with other schools in the

area.

Ministry of Education deputy

secretary sector enablement and

support Katrina Casey said it appreciates

the challenge Redwood

is facing but there is a challenge

catering to roll growth and decline

across the city.

“Any expansion of the Redwood

zone to the west or south

will result in the school being

less able to cater for projected

growth in the Redwood School

catchment. This would impact

negatively on neighbouring

schools,” Ms Casey said.

But she said the ministry

is happy to meet the board of

trustees again and discuss the

issues.

Mr Stackhouse said the school

and board would keep trying to

change the ministry’s mind.

The complications have been

caused by the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, he said.

“After the quakes, we had a

drop in roll as people moved

away or were forced out of their

homes.”

But Mr Stackhouse said families

have been coming back into

the area and with it, an increase

in pupils.

The rebuild of the school is

currently in the early planning

stage, with work expected to

begin at the end of next year and

finished in 2019.

“The initial plans have gone

back to the ministry to have

initial costing, then detailed

planning will commence term 1

next year,” he said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Mayor defends

funding cuts

• By Julia Evans

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel has

defended the decision to slash

Papanui-Innes Community

Board’s funding.

Ms Dalziel wrote a letter to

the community board, which

explained the city council’s decision

to cut the board’s funding

from $402,860 for the 2017/18 by

about $85,000.

Ms Dalziel said the process

which the city council used to

allocate the funding was an improvement

on the previous process,

which had “a lack of clear

rationale” and was “ad hoc.”

“While this process worked

well for some boards, others

received disproportionately less

funding,” the letter said.

Ms Dalziel said the new process

is based on measurable data,

is transparent and less costly to

administer. It uses population

data as well as the social deprivation

index.

But she said although the

social deprivation index has its

“limitations” it is still the best

tool available.

Ms Dalziel wrote that

she encouraged the board’s

working together across the

board boundaries to support

organisations.

motivated to want to try and

change the course of history and

save the animals from extinction.

Band gets into

the swing of it

THE ALL Girl Big Band set out

to inspire the younger female

students from St Andrew’s

College to pick up brass or wind

instruments.

The concert in the Centennial

Chapel was for girls years 5 to 10.

But the school’s jazz big band

only has a few girls in it, so it is

encouraging more girls to learn

those instruments and develop a

love for jazz.

Music, dancing, singing and

laughter filled the chapel.

Teacher nominated for award

• By Julia Evans

CO-DEVELOPING AN entirely

new school curriculum has earned

Simon Christie a nomination for a

teaching award.

The year 7 Selwyn House teacher

has made the finalist in the technology

category of the Education HQ

New Zealand Unsung Hero award

for his work on the mechatronics

course.

The curriculum is for year 1 to 8 pupils and combines

mechanical engineering, mathematics, science, technology

and the arts.

It engages the pupils in real-world, local problems to

solve. In Mr Christie’s class, pupils designed tools to be

used by his tetrapalegic mother-in-law.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Photographers captured the heart of the

Bishopdale community in the village mall during the

Christchurch Documentary Project.

Bishopdale in focus

• By Julia Evans

BISHOPDALE was in front of

the camera lens as its community

was captured in a photography

documentary.

A year-long photography

project by Canterbury University

fine arts students finding the

essence of the suburb is open to

the public at Bishopdale Library.

The Christchurch

Documentary Project cast its

eyes on Halswell in 2015, then

the city’s east last year.

But from April to August,

Bishopdale was the subject of

students Thomas Herman, Liam

Lyons, Elise Williams, Janneth

Gil and Lucas Perelini’s cameras.

From the iconic elephant slide

at Bishopdale Park to long-term

tenants at the mall, Ms Gil said it

was a fantastic opportunity to dig

deep into the community that

often flies under the radar.

“I met many amazing people

but I always will remember

The Burnside Scottish Country Dance Club, which meets on

Farrington Ave.

Raymond and Colleen Holland.

They are such a sweet couple and

they have been living in the area

for more than 30 years,” she

said.

Ms Gil said the pair had many

amazing stories to tell about their

community.

​The aim of the documentary

project is to create a photo

archive of the city post-natural

disaster for future generations

to see, focusing on different

suburbs.

City council project

manager Sam Ludemann said

Bishopdale was chosen as there

is a significant change and

rejuvenation happening in its

community at the moment.

That includes the opening

of the new library and mall

upgrades, he said.

“There’s going to be something

of real value – an exhibition

but also a body of work that

represents the people in the

community.”

in the boys and Marlborough

Girls’ and Dunedin’s Columbia

third in the girls.

St Bede’s Patrick O’Neill was

named boys most valuable

player for the tournament.

Coach Cooper Stewart said

the team gelled really well especially

off the back of Patrick

and his brother Sam.

“They both are something

else. They really stood out in

the tournament,” he said.

The O’Neill boys are identical

twins, which proves difficult

for Stewart to tell them

apart.

“They switch shoes

sometime just to mess with

us. They are very identical,” he

laughed.

St Margaret’s Violette Perry

was named girls MVP.

Director of sport Helen

girls will take a lot of confidence

I’d like to introduce it to

more students though,” he

said.

Ultimately, he would like

Finding those special gifts and stocking

shopping centres, where the shops are

bursting with festive merchandise.

Every woman likes to receive bodypampering

at the many pharmacies and gift shops

around the city. Perfume is another

favourite and again there is a wide

selection to choose from, ranging from

exciting new releases to the well-known

fragrances that have stood the test of time.

Lingerie, jewellery, fashion accessories,

homewares and decor items – there’s no

end to the ideas for the women on the list.

and dads. Choose from clothing, books,

tools, personal grooming items and

gadgets to put a smile on their face on

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families

more joy than seeing the excitement

of the children opening their presents.

Whether they are delivered by Santa or

snuck under the tree by mum and dad,

the cuddly toys, games, dolls and building

blocks, the candy canes, toy trucks and

pretty dresses currently filling the shops

will bring squeals of sheer happiness from

the smallest family members.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

New hope for patients

suffering from MS,

strokes or spinal injuries

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other physical and mental

health issues, Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment

that brings fast, and often immediate results.

NOR’WEST NEWS

Special offer for DeceMBer - if you

have suffered a stroke, spinal injury or

have MS, then this article is for you.

A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan

established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch

in 1993. As she continued her research and medical

practice, she discovered a reflexology network on

the human body, an exciting new discovery that

became the foundation of her new treatment –

acupuncture without needles.

Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt instrument

to stimulate the reflexology points on the face

or other parts of the body. When the point is

stimulated by pressure, a message is sent to the

repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan

explains, the treatment increases energy, which

boosts the body’s healing system.

The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but

that is a slow process. In addition, many people will

start to use their injured part, for example a knee

or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore

prolonging the injury and even causing chronic

pain.

With her powerful treatment, results are produced

very quickly – even instantly.

She likens it to the differences between the

power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane

– other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

reflexology network.

It brings fast results because it is a very precise

treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people

of all ages with many different types of pain in all

parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects.

Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing

low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s

treatment.

Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant

improvement for muscle weakness and numbness

caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke

and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan

reflexology to see lots of instant results videos.

Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology

Network, which introduces the treatment and

explains how it works. Her website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes treatment

videos, where people who have had the treatment

speak about the fast relief it has brought them.

Dr Lan is offering 10 patients of stroke, 10

patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury

half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168,

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as

many as 50% of older adults & as many

as 25% of younger adults are deficient

in vitamin B12. Scientists at Rush

University Medical Center found those

most deficient in vitamin B12 to have the

smallest brain mass & the lowest scores

on tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration & brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains & score

higher on cognitive tests than those with

lower levels. Yet another recent landmark

study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain

shrinkage & declining cognitive function.

B12 is essential for energy production, cell

health, regulation of mood & sleep cycles,

nerve health & repair, & prevention of

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular

risk factor that is known to cause damage

& plaque in the blood vessels. It

can also increase

the chances of a

stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease risk

of vision loss in a

study of participants

aged 40+ who supplemented with B12.

Another study linked a higher risk of

hearing loss in subjects in their 60’s who

were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication & other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth &

thru bypassing the digestive tract have

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels

in the body.

Further detailed information is

available from the Natural Health

Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural

Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are

always happy to help!

IS YOUR BRAIN SHRINKING?

BRAIN FOG, FORGETFUL, FEELING OLD, LOW ENERGY, MOOD SWINGS,

DIFFICULTY SLEEPING, PINS & NEEDLES, NUMBNESS IN LEGS

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking brain due to a lack of vitamin B12.

Supplementation of methylcobalamin B12 has been shown to reduce the rate of brain

shrinkage & support memory & brain function. B12 is also known to protect against

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that can also damage the hearing,

eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential for energy, cell health & nerve function.

RED CROSS

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

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

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

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

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

on to the sports field?

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

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

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

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

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

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

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

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

hypothermia and poisonings.

Ensuring a safe work place

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

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

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

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

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

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

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

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

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the

course best suited to your

needs, ask your accredited first

aid training provider. They can

explain the course content and

give you options that will best

suit your needs. Look beyond

the workplace and consider

your family and your location.

Check that you have a good

quality first aid kit that is up-todate

with replenished items, and

that everyone knows where it is

located.
