Scammers target vulnerable

• By Julia Evans

ELDERLY IN Papanui are

being targeted by phone and

online scammers trying to get

thousands of dollars from their

bank accounts.

Sergeant Paul Piper said the

Papanui station was beginning

to get a “reasonable amount” of

complaints regarding scams –

although at this stage no one had

lost any money.

“We’ve just had people concerned

about being asked for

personal details or bank account

information.”

He said scammers are aware

the elderly are especially lonely

over Christmas and want to talk,

which is a worry as Papanui has

the highest number of older people

in the city.

“Older people can be quite

vulnerable during the holidays . . .

they’re easily targeted and easy to

get drawn in,” he said.

Sergeant Piper said the scams

can cause people to lose a lot of

money if bank account details are

handed over, and complaints are

becoming “more frequent” in the

lead-up to the holidays.

“It comes in spates throughout

the year but at this time especially

. . . no one is ever going to call

and ask for your bank account

details. We’re just trying to get

that word out there.”

Papanui police and Age

Concern ran a workshop,

which addressed topics such as

scamming this month, which

Sergeant Piper said was a

“fantastic thing.”

“What I tell people is: ‘Have

you ever tried ringing Microsoft

or any of those companies yourself?’

It’s so hard to get through.

They’re not going to be phoning

you,” he said.

Sergeant Piper said Papanui

residents should also take extra

care locking their homes if

they’re going away for the holidays.

Police had attended a

number of home burglaries

already, which was expected

to increase as people head

away.

Body art

by students

well-being

Heaton Normal Intermediate

School’s Sophie Carpentier

was made a work of art by

Daisy Tait during an exhibition

showcasing drawings, paintings

and photographs by students

from around the city. One of

the highlights was a korowai

cloak made by Heaton pupils.

“Some of our students, who do

not find verbal expression easy,

have shown themselves to be

visually articulate through their

art work,” Heaton’s visual art

specialist Fiona Taylor said.

Wishing all my clients a

very Merry Christmas

and a happy New Year.

from the editor’s desk

IT’S HARD to believe another year has

just about whizzed by.

It’s been another 12 months of change

– particularly in the media game as the

big overseas-owned media groups grapple

over how to deliver the news to its consumers, and still stay in

business.

But the Nor West News rolls on, providing good local news

and advertising to readers who, in spite of what the big boys

might say, still enjoy the feel and touch of a newspaper.

But best of all it’s local, and that’s something the Nor West

News has been doing for a long time.

So have a very merry, safe and enjoyable Christmas, and of

course a Happy New Year!

Heavy vehicle ban mooted

• By Julia Evans

HEAVY VEHICLES could soon

be stopped from driving along

Fendalton roads.

A ban on heavy vehicles

is being investigated by city

council staff in a bid to start

addressing traffic and roading

concerns on

Glandovey and

Idris Rds. The

concerns were

raised by the

Glandovey, Idris

and Straven

Raf Manji

Residents’

Association.

City councillor

Raf Manji said he and fellow

councillor Aaron Keown had

met with city council chief executive

Karleen Edwards about

the roading issues.

“What came out of that

meeting is that we immediately

need to get the heavy freight off

Glandovey Rd,” Cr Manji said.

Following that, he said the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board and city

council would look at the layout

of the Glandovey and Idris Rds

intersection and nearby roads.

The number of heavy vehicles

using the roads has increased

since the earthquakes, Cr Manji

said. And he said it had also

SOLUTIONS: A ban on trucks along Glandovey and Idris Rd is

being investigated as a way to address pedestrian and cyclist

safety in the area. ​

become easier for large vehicles

to drive through the area since

the roundabout was upgraded to

lights in 2013.

Residents’ association spokesman

James Wilding said a ban

on heavy vehicles would be good

progress in the battle to make

the roads safe for pedestrians

and cyclists.

The roads are classified as minor

arterial or collector routes,

which Mr Wilding said is concerning

given the high number

of schools in the area.

“We have freight routes, for

example Blenheim Rd. Those

four and six-lane roads are the

ones freight should us,” he said.

The move comes after

Nor’West News reported the association

obtained safety audits

from the city council which

say “death or serious injury” at

the intersection is “likely” once

every five to 10 years due to visibility

issues between vehicles

and pedestrians.

Mr Wilding said the community

should have been aware

of these audits as their lives are

at risk.

A city council spokeswoman

said staff are working with the

community board to address the

communication concerns surrounding

the audits.

“Unfortunately due to the

volume of documents provided

to the requestor as part of the

LGOIMA responses, the safety

audits weren’t immediately

passed on to the board members,”

the spokesperson said.

Residents have been battling

the city council to address ongoing

roading, traffic and safety

issues in the area for almost a

year.

During the saga, Dr Edwards

recommended residents not

be involved in a work shop

with city council staff and

the community board to find

solutions.

However, the board went

against that decision and included

residents in discussions.

Cr Manji said he understands

it has been frustrating for residents.

“It’s important to get the community

voice out there, it has

been strong and its finally being

heard,” he said.

AURORA CENTRE REPAIRS

Major repairs and upgrade

work will start at Burnside High

School’s Aurora Centre for

Performing Arts next month.

The work is a combination of

earthquake and weather-related

repairs. Due to the complexity

of the work, the centre will be

closed and unavailable for use

until the middle of February.

NO TREES IN EDGEWARE

The protection of electrical

Board has fielded requests

from residents to improve the

by planting trees on berms.

However, a city council arborist

told the board most of the

measures and infrastructure

like wiring.

Cavendish Rd residents in

Casebrook have expressed

Sand in

water not

harmful

• By Andrew King

DID YOU notice sand in your

water? Don’t worry it was not

harmful according to city

councillor Vicki Buck.

Dry conditions and warm

temperatures have seen water

use in the city soar, making the

city’s pumps run near capacity

24-hours a day meaning​ they

have picked up some of the natural

sand that acts as a filter from

aquifers.

On Wednesday, Cr Buck let

the public know the city council

is aware of the sand in the water

and flushed the pipes to deal

with it.

“We know about the sand in

some water – we’re dealing with

it and it’s not harmful,” her Facebook

post said.

She said contractors will flush

pipes along Papanui Rd and

some streets close by such as

Mays Rd.

“It is not uncommon for sand

to get into the water supply and

it poses no known health risks –

it does not contain harmful bacteria.

In affected areas, people

may have noticed a few grains in

a glass of water.”

Rangi boarding boss retires

IN 1992, Jim Bolger was prime

minister, The Headless Chickens

won New Zealand album of

the year, Shortland Street first

went to air and Frances Barnett

started working at Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School in the boarding

house.

After 25 years, the 76-year-old

boarding house manager has

retired and she said it wasn’t an

easy decision to make.

“I will miss everyone terribly,”

she said. “The girls have been an

extension of my own family.”

Mrs Barnett’s own family is

large. She has five children and

14 grandchildren, as well as the

thousands of students she has

looked after.

“I’m a nurse by profession and

I have loved working closely

with the girls over the years,

looking after their pastoral care,

just being there for them,” she

said.

“I think empathy is missing in

so many parts of our every day

lives and I have always told the

girls, put yourself in someone

else’s shoes, imagine what something

is like for them.”

When Mrs Barnett started at

Rangi Ruru, the boarding house

was located in Te Koraha the

main historic homestead on the

school site.

“We had five fireplaces that

Mr Rex used to set every day. I

would go around and light them

and the house quickly warmed

up. Seems such a long time ago

now,” Frances said.

A particular highlight over

her years was winning an

outstanding contribution to

boarding from the New Zealand

Boarding School Association

last year.

“The award is definitely one. I

never expected it,” she said.

“Other highlights? There have

been so many. I get invitations

to weddings, 21st birthdays and

christenings from the girls who

went through here and that’s

very special to me.”

Mrs Barnett said there’s a real

warmth about the boarding

house.

“All of the girls knew that I

was here when they needed me.

The whole boarding family is

focused on the girls’ well-being,

way in a happy life.”

She said working at the boarding

house has kept her feeling

young.

Mrs Barnett intends to remain

involved with the boarding

house as much as possible, helping

with Christmas events and

“other bits and pieces.”

Tech-savvy teacher awarded

• By Julia Evans

WINNING an unsung hero

award from EducationHQ New

Zealand is no easy feat.

Selwyn House teacher

Simon Christie had to develop

an entirely new curriculum,

the first of its kind in New

Zealand, to take out the unsung

hero technology category last

Tuesday.

The Burnside resident codeveloped

the mechatronics

course with his colleague, Liz

Fairhall. It mixes technology,

robotics, mechanical

engineering, mathematics,

science and the arts.

“We’ve always had a robotics

programme but we wanted

to find a point of difference,”

he said. That’s when the

mechatronics course began its

development.

“Girls are often

underrepresented in the science

and technology fields. We want

them not only to be taking part

in them, but leading the way,”

he said.

Winning the award was

“vindication” that his pupils

would have an advantage in a

world dominated by technology.

While he has put many days

and nights into the curriculum,

the course will never quite be

complete. “That’s what we tell

our girls. In mechanical engineering,

nothing’s ever quite

finished. It’s a never-ending

task. You can always find something

to change and upgrade.

It’s the same with mechatronics,”

he said.

Mr Christie said while the

mechatronics curriculum began

in one Selwyn classroom, it

is now taught throughout the

school.

“From years 1-8. And they’ve

even started teaching it in the

pre-school,” he said.

One of his proudest moments

was when his year 7 pupils

developed a knife that could be

used by his mother-in-law who

has tetraplegia.

“The girls were learning about

rights in society in terms of

people with a disability. They

then applied their mechatronics

learning to help solve a problem,”

he said.

CAR PARKING LOST

Portacoms for contractors have

been installed on the front lawn and

temporary car park of Jellie Park

Sport and Recreation Centre for the

next year as earthquake repair work

is completed. The site will be used

for contractors who are repairing

several of the centre’s pools and will

not be available for car parking.

CHILD SAFETY IMPROVED

Concerns regarding the safety of

children at the KidsFirst on Kendal

Ave have been addressed by the

city council. Following a site visit

by city council staff, it was agreed

that 10min parking restrictions

be installed. The kindergarten

requires a safe area for parents and

caregivers to park and pick-up or

drop-off children and the creation

of a short-term parking restriction

will provide turnover of parking.

FUNDING APPROVED

A grant of $200 has been approved

by the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board for

Hannah Stanely to attend the 2018

Ranger Event in Masterton. The

13-year-old is a pupil at Breens

will involve adventures that girls

can participate in including rock

climbing, rafting, visit to Te Papa,

tramping and horse riding.

at Northlands Shopping

Centre as the festive season

With only six

Judging from last

you find a park.

“We realise Christmas

shopping is a stressful time

for many, so we’ve tried

to make shoppers’ visits

Vicki Bain said.

Additionally, in exchange

for a gold coin

donation, visitors to the

mall can have gifts of all

shapes and sizes wrapped,

with proceeds going to the

Rotary Club of Papanui

and nine other local community

groups.

The initiative raised

more than $18,000 last

year. It is predicted the

gift-wrapping volunteers

will wrap more than 9500

presents and more than

60,000 Eftpos transactions

will be made at the mall

before Christmas.

FAMILY STORES

AMALGAMATE IN

PAPANUI

Two of the Salvation Army

Family Stores in the north of the

city have amalgamated into one

new location in Restell Street

Papanui.

The Main North Road shop

has closed, and the Cranford St

shop, which was opened after

the earthquakes to provide

furniture and linen for displaced

families, has also closed

its doors.

“The Cranford St shop had

come to the end of its season,

and the opportunity arose to

bring the two shops together,

which has been very exciting

for us,” says Pastor for Salvation

Army Christchurch North, Gill

Waugh.

“The new premises in Restell St

offer a large, bright open space

with lots of room for stock.

New stock is on the shop floor

every day, so it pays to drop in

regularly.”

The huge selection includes

clothing, the popular label

racks for that something special,

toys, books, crockery and

glassware, electrical items and

furniture, all donated by the

public.

“There’s off-street parking at

the new shop, which makes it

easier for people dropping off

items, and also for our customers,”

Gill says.

The Family Store will also pick

up donated goods and deliver

as arranged, Monday to Friday.

All the proceeds from sales go

towards the Salvation Army’s community

work, such as budgeting advice,

advocacy, WINZ quotes, welfare

support and the Positive Lifestyle Programme.

(These services operate from

the Belfast Centre, 794 Main North

Rd.)

The Family Store offers a Loyalty Card

system, with customers getting their

card clicked for every $10 spent. Once

they have 10 clicks, they get $10 to

spend in the store.

New manager at the Papanui Family

Store, Anne Tihore, previously worked

as a Family Store volunteer. She has

four employees on her team, who are

assisted by 25-30 volunteers. Some

ladies have volunteered for up to 20 and

30 years.

Anne and staff member Pauline say

customer feedback on the new shop has

been really positive.

“They love the spaciousness, brightness

and the layout, and that everything

is all in one place, not in two shops,”

Pauline says.

Anne says the new Family Store has

also brought a consolidation amongst

the staff.

“There’s a great team spirit. And the

shop also has a community feel about

it, which comes from the customers.

Papanui is a very strong community

and we are excited to be a part of it.”

The Papanui Family Store is currently

Mural brings Mairehau alive

Pupils inspire

Innes Rd art

• By Julia Evans

A DRAB wall in Mairehau

has come to life with colourful

artwork – an idea sparked

entirely by local children.

When asked what was

wrong with their community,

Mairehau Primary School pupils

said the area needed more

colour.

So Richard ‘Popx’ Baker was

enlisted to paint a mural on a

wall between the school and

Innes Rd.

The Neighbourhood Trust

and Child and Youth Friendly

Cities organised the artwork,

which features Mairehau pupils

planting a garden.

Trust manager Ginny Larsen

said it has been a great result

from a collaborative effort.

“The project started two-anda-half

years ago when the trust

was working with children from

Mairehau Primary asking them

what they liked about the area,

what they didn’t like and what

they would like to change,” she

said.

One of the main themes was

that the pupils found Mairehau

a “bit grey” and wanted “more

and Amy Scott in front of the mural on Innes Rd.

colour and vibrancy” in the

area.

The pupils took photos and

made up a board of ideas.

“One of the things they

suggested was a mural,” Ms

Larsen said.

But the trust quickly hit a

road block.

Said Ms Larsen: “We thought

this would be lovely but we’ve

got no money.”

That’s when Child and Youth

Friendly Cities came on board.

Ms Larsen said the group

really liked the fact that it was

the voices and ideas of local

children being heard.

Many large-scale murals by

Baker feature across the city.

They include a building

at Phillipstown School through

to the “wall of love” in New

Brighton.

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

No further

traffic calming

measures

near school

• By Julia Evans

MORE TRAFFIC calming

measures around Paparoa Street

School are off the table.

In a memo to the

Papanui-Innes, city council

traffic engineer Penny Gray said

although the area around Paparoa

St, Tomes Rd and Rutland St is

congested, that does not mean it is

dangerous.

“Congestion around the school

is solely caused by the school and

the traffic it generates,” Ms Gray

said.

She said although the congestion

is noticible during peak

school hours, the city council

expects this as the school’s roll is

more than 550.

Paparoa St already has a

“high level” of traffic calming

measures installed that ensure a

low speed environment, Ms Gray

said.

“The school has excellent offstreet

paths directly from the

school, which children and parents

can safely use to access other

roads in the network. This could

help spread congestion from the

school gate.”

FLAME FILES

Fire columnist bids farewell

• By Mark Thomas – fire risk management

officer

THIS IS the last flame files.

After nearly 11 years back in

Christchurch and 518 columns completed,

I’ve decided it’s time to shuffle off into

retirement.

The column has been something I’ve

always enjoyed.

Sometimes the time available has been

too short for comfort and some other

times I’ve had a good subject and time to

do it justice.

I can only hope it’s been entertaining to

some and even occasionally informative.

I know the issues haven’t really changed.

There are still too many kitchen fires.

There are still too many arson fires.

But in recent years, the number of fire

fatalities has fallen.

This must in part be the result of our

promotion of smoke alarms and I still live

STAY SAFE: A group

of prisoners Mark

Thomas spoke to

at Christchurch

Women’s Prison

later used their

phone privileges to

ring home to ensure

their families were

protected by smoke

alarms.

in hope of the day none of us will agree to

sleep anywhere that is not alarm covered.

Another quite satisfying part of this job

has been the public speaking.

I’ve talked to older people, young

people, service groups and even prisoners

in jail.

Some of the most satisfying feedback I

ever got was being told all of the group I

had spoken to at Christchurch Women’s

Prison later used their phone privileges

to ring home to ensure the family was

protected by smoke alarms.

Finally, sincere thanks are due to Star

Media for providing me with the platform

to preach the fire safety message.

That’s a true public service and is very

much appreciated.

I’ve been fortunate with the calibre

of people I’ve worked with, both in the

firefighting family and those outside.

Stay safe everyone!

Festive Season Survival Tips

Healthy snacks are always popular

Christmas is a time for celebration,

spending time with friends and

family and enjoying festive foods

and drinks. Nutrition-wise, this

festive fare can be a challenge.

Here are some simple tips to help you

survive the festivities:

• Don’t try to lose weight over the festive

season. With parties, families and all the

special foods that go with Christmas, it’s

going to be just about impossible! Your

main aim should be to maintain your weight

(using some of the tips below!)

• Eat regular meals. If you skip meals you

are more likely to fill up on high fat snacks.

It only takes a few of these snacks to add

up to more calories than your usual meal.

• Avoid going to a function hungry, you

can easily eat a lot of party food in a short

time. Have a small snack beforehand like a

bowl of cereal, yoghurt or a sandwich are

quick and will help fill you up. It will also

help if you are well hydrated, so try drinking

a few glasses of water before you arrive.

• Deep fried foods, crumbed and battered

foods, cheese platter and nuts are all high in

fat. Choose fruit, vegetable or bread based

snacks.

• If you are hosting the party, offer your

guests a range of healthy snacks. Always

popular are hummus or salsa dips with

vegetable sticks.

• If you are taking a plate, make yours a

healthy option. How about a platter of fruit

currently in season?

• Listen to your body and stop eating

when you feel full.

• Just say ‘No” to food – mentally

Be aware of how much you are actually drinking

practice strategies to decline food offers. For

example: “It looks amazing but I am full” or

“I tried it and it was great”.

• Chat and mingle. If you are bored at a

party you’re more likely to hover around the

food table or seek out the serving platter. A

good conversation can distract you from the

food. Avoid standing right beside the food

table or bar while you’re talking.

• Consider your drinks, they can add to

the calorie count very quickly. Try diluting

your alcoholic drinks, such as a spritzer

(½ wine, ½ soda). If you prefer spirits,

try a diet mixer. Lite beers are lower in

calories and alcohol. Remember soft drinks,

juices, punches, tonic water and flavoured

mineral water can all have similar calories

to alcoholic drinks.

•Be aware of how much you are actually

drinking. Alternate alcoholic drinks with

glasses of water and non-alcoholic choices.

• Keep active. Join in the Christmas

backyard cricket game or go for a walk

with friends or relatives. Remember you’re

aiming for 30 minutes of physical activity

each day.

• If your regular exercise class stops over

the Christmas break, plan other types of

exercise - organise your friends and put a

date in your diary.

If you do really overdo the festive foods

or drinks, take a deep breath and start the

next day afresh with healthy foods and some

exercise. No fasting - just sensible eating.

Remember, a few parties don’t make you

overweight, it’s what you do all the other

days of the year which count.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

PINEAPPLE, GINGER AND

COCONUT CRUMBLE

Ingredients

Filling

1 pineapple

2 Tbsp butter

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 pieces star anise

4 pieces crystallised ginger, finely

chopped

3/4 cup coconut milk

Coconut crumble

100g butter

160g flour

½ tsp ground ginger

50g sugar

80g shredded coconut

1 lime, zested

Directions

Heat oven to 180 deg C. Peel

pineapple, cut into quarters,

remove core then slice into small

even pieces.

Melt butter in a large frying

pan, add pineapple, vanilla and

star anise.

Cook on a high heat until

pineapple begins to caramelise.

Add ginger and coconut milk,

allow to simmer gently for

10min.

Dice butter then rub in flour

and ginger using fingertips until

it resembles breadcrumbs.

Stir through sugar, coconut

and lime zest.

Spoon pineapple into a

baking dish, sprinkle over

coconut crumble mix and

bake for 20-30min until

crumble topping is golden and

fragrant.

MOROCCAN GRATED

CARROT AND BEET SALAD

Ingredients

2 cups of grated carrots (from

about three carrots)

1 cup of grated fresh beets (from

about one medium sized peeled

beet)

1/2 cup golden raisins

1/2 teaspoon paprika (sweet, not

hot)

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Small pinch of salt

Small pinch of cayenne

2 Tbsp lemon juice

2 teaspoons honey

2 Tbsp sliced fresh mint leaves

Directions

Place the grated carrots in a

medium sized serving bowl.

Place the grated beets into a

sieve and briefly rinse with cold

water. This will rinse away a

little of the excess beet juice that

may otherwise colour the whole

salad beet red.

Pat dry with a paper towel.

Then add to the bowl with the

carrots. Add the raisins. Stir to

gently combine.

In a small bowl, whisk

together the paprika, cumin,

cinnamon, salt, and cayenne.

Then add the lemon juice and

honey and whisk until smooth.

Drizzle over the carrots and

beets, then gently fold

until the carrots and

beets are lightly coated.

Let sit for an hour

before serving, either

chilled or at room

temperature, for the

dressing to seep

into the carrots and

beets.

Right before serving,

stir in a couple

tablespoons of sliced

fresh mint leaves.

Garnish with fresh

mint.

REAL ESTATE

A Chic Urban Lifestyle

20 Beechwood Drive, Northwood

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 1 living room | 2 car-garage | Property ID: PI49467

This gorgeous home offers chic

contemporary living and great value for

money in a setting that’s hard to beat.

Built by Horncastle Homes and boasting

a Palazzo kitchen, it is tastefully decorated

and immaculately presented to create a

home you’ll be proud to call your own.

A spectacular location, with a reserve

boundary to the north, ensures you

can never be built-out - and you’re just

a few minutes’ walk or a short drive to

supermarket, cafés and shops.

Inside, an elegant, open-plan living space

flows from the north-facing lounge - where

a gas fire lends ambience and French doors

open to a superb outdoor entertaining space

- to the dining area and kitchen beyond.

Cleverly placed glazing fills the kitchen

with natural light, making it an inviting

workspace. High-spec, with great extras

including induction cooktop and separate

combination oven, it is as functional as it is

beautiful. Upstairs, two double bedrooms,

including one with a balcony looking out

over the reserve, share a family bathroom,

while the master occupies the third floor,

enjoying wonderful space and light with its

own balcony, absorbing outlook, WIR and

en suite. A double internal-access garage

is a welcome feature, while the sunny

courtyard garden is beautifully manicured

and designed to offer effortless outdoor

living with the minimum of maintenance.

This property ticks all the boxes as an

inviting and easy-care home or investment

property. The owners have already

purchased another property so must

relinquish their much-loved home. This is

your chance. Contact the agent today to

view.
