Godwit plan grounded

Planned

site in

no-man’s

land

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Plans to put sculptures of

godwits in South New Brighton

are on hold because the

proposed site is in

“no-man’s land.”

The South Brighton Residents’

Association wants to put the

seven sculptures on the banks

near the south-eastern entrance

of the Bridge St bridge.

The association presented a

report to the Burwood-Pegasus

Community Board last week.

The board approved a

$3974.25 grant for Southshore

artist Bon Suter to begin work

on the seven godwits, and ringfenced

a further $8000 for the

project until a location had been

decided upon.

Godwits are wading birds that

visit the eastern suburbs every

year, travelling long distances

to get here in time for summer.

They live in Alaska before

undertaking a record non-stop

ARTWORK: A concept of what the sculptures would look like near the Bridge St bridge, South New Brighton.

migratory flight south to New

Zealand’s coastline.

But city council staff told the

board members that after extensive

research, it was found that

the land didn’t belong to Land

Information New Zealand, the

city council, or the Crown.

The land is classed as a common

marine coastal area, and

therefore “doesn’t belong to

anyone.”

City council’s community

development adviser Heather

Davies said the

residents’ association

would have

to find somewhere

else to install the

artwork.

“The land . . . is

incapable of being

owned. I’ve spoken to the South

Brighton Residents’ Association

and have suggested that they

relocate to a different space .

. . they have no right to put it

there,” she said.

But association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson (left) said he will

continue to push for the sculptures

to be installed near the bridge.

“It’s the most desirable spot,

but if that’s not an option we

will have to think about others.

If it’s put in no man’s land and

it’s not a nuisance, who would

challenge it? I’d like to see if

anyone has objections to us using

that land,” he said.

Mr Kristinsson said he has

considered having the sculptures

installed alongside the ‘welcome

to South New Brighton’ sign.

“That’s one of the options

that has been identified, but the

thing is it would look really nice

where we had initially planned

for it, so we will pursue that,”

he said.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think the sculptures should

be installed in no-man’s land?

Where would you like to see

them installed? Email fraser.

Long wait for proposed

Waitikiri playground

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

A playground that was first

proposed for Waitikiri Square

in February last year, won’t be

installed until this Christmas.

The Waitikiri Square

Landscape Plan, including

the installation of playground

equipment, trees, a football

goal, and seating went up

for public consultation last

February.

But the city council says it is

still in the detailed design stage,

and the projected end date “is

Christmas this year.”

City council’s head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said the

community shouldn’t worry, as

the budget that was talked about

well over a year ago is still safe.

“Funding is available for

the installation of the play

equipment, picnic table, park

bench and post and bollard

fence in (this) financial year,

following annual plan approval.

$137,000 has been set aside for

this project,” he said.

Mr Rutledge said construction

estimates for the playground are

still the same as they were during

the consultation process.

The park will be bordered by

Waitikiri Square and Bluestone

Drive, in the Waitikiri subdivision

in Marshland.

Waitikiri Residents’ Association

chairman Rod Miller said

people should be getting more

for the rates they’re paying.

“We do want

to see it at the

end of the year

but I mean we

could’ve said

that this time

last year. We are

looking forward to seeing it, but

it is taking a long time,” he said.

Burwood-Pegasus Community

Board member Linda Stewart

(left) said the concept plan for

the playground did not meet the

expectations of residents.

“It just doesn’t meet the

expectations set by the

residents. It’s a measly budget,

and it’s not living up to what the

developers had planned either,”

she said.

MEDICAL CENTRE

CAR PARK SUPPORT

Travis Medical Centre’s Dr

Sue French has asked the

Burwood-Pegasus Community

Board to support them in

lobbying to keep their car

park. The lease on the car

park could be in jeopardy if

the QE II Park land sale deal

is confirmed. The Ministry of

Education has signalled it may

want the land where the car

park is situated. Community

board chairwoman Andrea

Cummings told Dr French that

during the ongoing hearings

process, the board cannot

support the medical centre

until a decision has been made

either way. She said after a

decision had been made the

board would reconvene to

make a decision.

your local Views

Readers respond to the

Pegasus Post article on the

fireworks display being moved

away from New Brighton for

the next two years:

Paul Jennings: I have read

about the fireworks being

canned from the pier until

repairs are complete. I think

Hagley Park would be a better

place than Scarborough.

Think about the traffic. There

is only one way in and out of

Scarborough. Hagley Park is

more central for all.

Louise Macdonald: If we lose

the fireworks to somewhere

else, for example Sumner, we

definitely won’t see the venue

back in New Brighton. Also

has anyone thought of the oneway

road into Sumner, on Guy

Fawkes night? It would be a

nightmare for parents taking

their families on the night of

November 5.

Can you imagine the chaos

on the road into, and back out,

especially in the dark? And

don’t forget November 5 doesn’t

always fall on a Saturday night,

so children have to be back to

school the next morning, and if

it’s late, then hitting one-way

traffic out of Sumner could

mean they don’t get back home

until after 11pm.

It is bad enough driving home

out of New Brighton – I know

because one year our family

went up from South Brighton

to New Brighton, and when

the fireworks finished, it took

an hour or more to get back to

South Brighton, with all the

traffic. So from then on we

just go over to the beach and

watched from there.

New Brighton certainly

doesn’t need to lose any venues,

it’s already suffering through

lack of shops. Compared that

to what it was like in its hay

day. I agree with Tim Sintes’

comment, “promises have a

habit of being broken around

here” – meaning New Brighton.

So true.

MARK THOMAS – FIRE

RISK MANAGEMENT

OFFICER

Only about 30 per cent of the

calls we attend now actually

involve fires. The other 70 per

cent includes false alarms, car

crashes, hazardous substance

incidents and medical

emergencies where we provide

manpower with first aid skill

to back up the experts from St

John.

Some of our work does not

neatly fit into any of the normal

categories. An elderly caller last

Thursday had knocked a cushion

that had fallen down the side

of her hot water cylinder. She

wondered if it was a fire risk. It

probably wasn’t. But St Albans

Red Watch crew went to her

house and retrieved the cushion

which almost certainly saved her

days and nights of worry.

We also saw the Wainoni crew

travelling to Collingwood St in

New Brighton the same day to a

child who had managed to trap

their leg in a gate. All the efforts

of the locals were to no avail. A

tool known as a hooligan bar,

a kind of short crowbar, was

utilised by the crew to bend the

railings enough to release the

trapped leg.

There were a couple of

potentially serious fires in the

week. Both were of a suspicious

nature. A camper van at the back

of a vehicle dealer in St Asaph

St was set alight and destroyed

recently and on Wednesday

night, fireworks were apparently

utilised to ignite a fire on the

Port Hills that was visible across

the city.

I’m sure police would

appreciate any information

that might identify either set of

culprits.

‘Risky’ alleyways a concern

Residents worry over Haeata student safety

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Avondale and Wainoni residents

are concerned that when Haeata

Community Campus opens next

year, students will be unsafe

walking home from late-night

events, due to a number of

“dangerous” alleyways.

The opening of Haeata will see

the closure of Avondale, Wainoni,

Aranui Primary, and Aranui High

Schools, and is only three terms

away from opening its doors.

But concerns have been raised

over the safety of students

attending Haeata, who would walk

to and from the school, and use

these alleyways.

At a recent Active and Passenger

Transport Working Group meeting,

the concerns were raised by

Living Streets spokeswoman Meg

Christie.

Mrs Christie said that in daylight

hours residents living around the alleyways

didn’t think it was risky using

them, but in the night and early

morning, they saw a risk involved.

“It’s the moving around to

rugby training or church events or

something that is the problem. If

students are walking or cycling to

and from their after-school events,

they need to feel safe,” she said.

In the Avondale-Wainoni

suburbs, six alleyways have been

named as needing more lighting,

some back onto parks, and most

are in residential areas.

The alleyways of concern are

between Mervyn Drive and Woolley

St, Pembroke St and Emlyn

Pl, Wainoni Rd and Aldershot St,

Ben Rarere Ave and Aldershot St,

Ventor and Corhampton Sts, and

Meon and Warblington Sts.

Mrs Christie said a lot of residents

said they wouldn’t feel safe

walking down certain alleyways,

and wouldn’t recommend others

to either.

“The neighbours said ‘we don’t

want to encourage people to walk

down there’. They said it’s really

scary at night. They lived there

and felt it wasn’t safe,” she said.

Burwood-Pegasus Community

Board member Tim Baker said he

was fully supportive of the alleyways

receiving more lighting.

ALLEGED ASSAULT

A man suffered moderate

injuries after he was allegedly

assaulted last week in New

Brighton. St John sent an

ambulance to the incident, on

Marine Parade, at about 7.30pm

last Tuesday. The man, in his

50s, was taken to hospital.

ROAD REPAIRS

From today Travis Rd, between

Blue Gum Place and Atlantis

St, will be closed for Stronger

Christchurch Infrastructure

Rebuild Team wastewater, storm

water and road repairs. This

is expected to take about two

months. Traffic will be diverted

around the site using the former

QE II slip road. Meanwhile,

traffic going east towards The

Palms Shopping Centre is being

detoured, because of culvert

repairs. Traffic management is

scheduled to be uplifted by late

May. Work will be undertaken at

night on North Parade, between

Banks Ave and Randall St, and

is due to finish early this week.

SPEED BUMP NOT NEEDED

A speed bump will not be

installed on Saltaire St, North

New Brighton, after a report

by city council staff told a

community board there was no

need for one. The report was

heard at last week’s Burwood-

Pegasus Community Board

meeting, and said the estimated

cost of installing a speed bump

on the street would be more than

$30,000.

BREAST CANCER CAMPAIGN

Customers visiting their local

Robert Harris café throughout

May can order off the menu

and 10 per cent of their meal

purchase will be donated to the

New Zealand Breast Cancer

Foundation’s Pink Ribbon

Appeal. The company is aiming

to raise $100,000 by the end of

the campaign.

School space draws interest

from community groups

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Help for the Homeless is one of

more than 50 community groups

that has registered its interest

in the use of a classroom at the

former Central New Brighton

School.

Central New Brighton, along

with Freeville and North New

Brighton schools were merged to

make way for Rawhiti School at

the end of last year.

ReNew Brighton has volunteered

to help line up the use of

the former school site with the

best wishes of the community.

The site has been split up into

three sections. The hall, the pool,

and the school sites.

ReNew Brighton co-ordinator

Sylvia Smyth said the hall site

has not seen any changes, and

is currently being used by the

Christchurch Circus Trust.

Meanwhile, a decision to

demolish the pool site is being

lobbied by the Strategic Urban

Rejuvenation Force, after it

was announced without public

consultation.

Ms Smyth said this has left the

school site, which contains nine

usable classrooms, up for community

use.

COMMUNITY USE: The former Central New Brighton School site is

currently being negotiated for community use by ReNew Brighton.

“We don’t know

how long we will

have this (site) for.

The school has

gone to the disposal

process, which

is what happens

when the Ministry of Education

doesn’t need the school anymore,

and they’re in the process

of getting rid of it,” she said.

Help for the Homeless founder

Amy Burke (above) said the group

is “very interested” in using one of

the classrooms for storage.

“We are very interested in the

site. We’re hoping for it, because

then we can get a new space for

storing furniture, although we

haven’t been in contact with the

organisers since then,” she said.

She said getting a classroom for

storage would “make things really

easy”, because furniture currently

has to be placed all over town.

Ms Smyth said ReNew

Brighton will continue

negotiations with the Ministry of

Education.

“There was a huge variety of

ideas and among that a strong art

theme. We don’t know how we

will operate just yet . . . we’re

at the point now that we’ve said

we’ll continue lease negotiations

with the ministry,” she said.

Owners just happy

parakeet is alive

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

A family who lost their parakeet

two years ago have been

reunited with their feathery

friend, but they won’t take him

back home, they’re just happy

to see he’s alive.

Pegasus Post

reported last

week that a parakeet

had made

itself at home in

a Burwood resident’s

trees.

A Shirley resident

contacted

the Pegasus

Post to say she

thought the

bird could be

her “best fiend”

Tweety Bird,

who she lost two

years before.

Shahna Hira said she lost

her pet parakeet two years ago

when it managed to escape

outside and fly away.

“We did post things on Facebook

and Trade Me and tracked

him for a month after he flew

away. We went to all the locations

that people had said they’d

seen him, but couldn’t find

him,” she said.

But, after reading last week’s

article, Ms Hira was convinced

that Tweety Bird had reappeared

at Burwood residents

Roger and Veronica Foley’s

house. She made contact with

the couple, who

have had the

parakeet visit them

every day since

they moved in last

year.

Ms Hira said

she visited the

Foleys twice to

have a look at the

parakeet, and was

“certain” it was

the same bird she

had lost two years

before.

But she said as

much as she wanted

to catch Tweety

Bird and take him home, she

knew she had to leave him.

“As much as we’d love to

have caught him and taken him

home, we’re just happy to know

he’s happy, and happy to know

he’s being looked after. I will be

visiting him but it’s never going

to be about us trying to catch

him,” she said.

Colin Wood

Pastor with a sense of adventure

Newly-appointed

Parklands Baptist

Community Church

pastor Colin Wood

talks to Fraser Walker-

Pearce about how he

proposed long distance

to his wife of 25 years,

why his body doesn’t

bounce like it used to,

and why he chose to

work in Parklands.

Hi Colin, when did you come

to Parklands, and why?

I started at Parklands Baptist

Community Church the week

before Easter, and what brought

me out here was, after pastoring

in other places, I found they

had a really strong community

connection. Part of me wanted

to become a pastor in a really

interesting community.

So it was the community

connection that drew you in?

It has a really strong community

connection. We had

friends who went through the

earthquake and we really wanted

to be here, but obviously at the

same time I didn’t want to be

here. The church is very involved

in community. I can’t

give you exact numbers but it’s

an astonishing number of people

coming through every week.

There is a craft group, a move

and groove group for toddlers,

babies groups, and they show

movies. They’re really very

involved. It was very attractive

for me.

Where were you in 2011?

I was in Invercargill, working

with the Invercargill Central

Baptist Church in 2011. When

the earthquake rolled around,

the Parklands church really did

very well. They opened up their

building, became an earthquake

support area for the community

and ran meals for everyone for

about six weeks. I wasn’t here

for it but I have heard from people

around the area who say: ‘Oh

Previously

COMMUNITY LEADER: Colin and Linda Wood have recently moved to the eastern suburbs from Invercargill,

and Colin is the new pastor of the Parklands Baptist Community Church.

yes, I’ve had a meal there’ or

something like that, about their

experiences with the church.

Wow, sounds like you’ve

picked the right one. Where

did you train to become a pastor?

I trained at Carey College and

also the University of Auckland.

So I have a bachelor in theology,

and have pastored in Ilam for

eight years and another eight in

Invercargill before that.

And what did you do before

that?

Well this is where it gets interesting.

I actually spent four years

in Hong Kong and helped drug

addicts for some of that.

Well I wasn’t expecting that

answer. How did you help

them?

It was astonishing, and probably

one of the reasons I’ve ended

up working as a pastor, is seeing

a number of people change their

lives. My background is with

computers, and although computers

are great, it’s even better

seeing people change their lives

for good, it’s just magnificent.

So did you go over there

specifically to work with drug

addicts?

I went over to work with

computers, and wanted to see if

I could live in another culture. I

got involved with a church that

was working specifically with

heroin addicts. After we’d been

involved with the church for a

few years, full-time, we began

running houses that housed recovering

addicts. And that would

probably have been for 24 hours

a day, six days a week.

So it was a successful exercise?

A lot of those guys have overcome

that now and they have

lives now, it’s just fantastic. We

do keep in touch with a few and

they’re doing well, from what

looked like dead-end stories, have

now got lives and they’re out

making a difference. That was for

two years full-time, and a year

and a half were volunteering.

So if you were volunteering

did you have to have a job

there too?

When we first got there I

worked with computers, and

my wife worked as a nurse, and

is now a district nurse here in

Christchurch. But we actually

lived off our savings back then. I

think it was in the mid-90s.

So how old does that make

you now?

Hmm . . . let’s just say I’m in

my 50s.

Okay fair enough. Where did

you meet your wife?

I met my wife in Wellington.

Fly Direct to Fiji

Children Fly, Stay & Eat From $199. * Limited to the first 70 children.

No, it wasn’t love at first sight

(laughs) – love is a process.

When I left to go to Hong Kong

I actually called her from my

hotel in Boston (during a stopover)

and I proposed to her over

the phone, while she was back in

Wellington.

What – really?

I missed the engagement party

and everything – don’t do it the

way I did. I guess you could say

I came to my senses right then

and there, and have not regretted

it ever since. We’ve now been

married 25 years.

Do you have any children?

Yes, I have two daughters.

They’re both university age. One

is at Canterbury and one is in

Dunedin, they’re both studying.

And what do you do in your

spare time?

Well I surf . . . badly. I’m a

bit of an old fogey, so I have a

longboard, but my friend has

leant me a shortboard so I will

be trying out the shortboard

soon. I’m really enjoying riding

the mountain bike around Bottle

Lake Forest as well. And I’m

also an old school whitewater

kayaker, which I don’t do as

much anymore unfortunately,

and I also play guitar.

Would you say you like extreme

sports?

I actually skateboard to church

sometimes. It’s just such a fun

thing to do. It’s just really good

getting some exercise. But I’m

too old to get into the really extreme

sports, I don’t take it down

hills, you become aware that

once you’re past 50 your body

doesn’t bounce like it used to.

Where were you born?

I grew up in Christchurch on

the Port Hills, from about age

seven upwards. I wasn’t born

here, I was born in Australia.

Oh no, not an Aussie-born

Kiwi?

I won’t respond to what rugby

team I support (laughs). I have a

New Zealand passport but I was

born in Manly.

What schools did you attend?

I went to Cashmere Primary

and Cashmere High after that.

Singing and signing

Buddy classes at Banks Avenue School last week had a ‘singing and

signing’ lesson. The school celebrated New Zealand Sign Language

Week by learning letters and words from a pupil who has cochlear

implants, with the help of her mother. Natalia and mother Liz

Kay taught junior and senior buddy classes a fun way of learning

sign language, through singing and dancing. New Zealand Sign

Language Week started yesterday and runs until Sunday.

EXCITED: These Rawhiti School

pupils were among hundreds

from South New Brighton and

Rawhiti schools who will count

down the sleeps until they watch

the Warriors take on the Penrith

Panthers. Last week nearly 500

pupils and parents were handed

tickets to attend the National

Rugby League match thanks to

the generosity of a number of

local businesses. The Panthers will

visit both schools on Thursday in

the lead-up to the Saturday clash

at AMI Stadium.

New equipment, facilities

welcome back Marshland pupils

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Marshland School pupils came

back after the holidays to find

they had a whole range of new

equipment, a cricket pitch, and

more seating for lunchtime.

They were all installed at the

school during the holiday

break.

Principal Jacqui Pascoe

said the pupils have spent

their morning tea and

lunch breaks testing out

the new equipment all

week.

“The children, teachers

and parents at Marshland

are all very excited to have

the new equipment,” she

said.

The pupils have also been

training for their upcoming

cross-country event, which will

be the first at the new site.

Mrs Pascoe said the new track

will be testing for the pupils.

“At the new school, the crosscountry

track is much more

interesting with mounds for the

children to

run up and down,” she said.

In addition to the pupils coming

back from their holiday

break, Mrs Pascoe said the second

stage of development to the

school is about to begin.

“(Stage two) will

consist of a new learning

hub and da Vinci

making space for our

intermediate students,

and a learning hub

for a group of students

from Ferndale

School,” she said.

She said the da

Vinci space will be

where pupils can

design, create and

collaborate on new ideas using

technology.

PLAY TIME: New playground equipment at Marshland School has seen

the kids outside testing it out for the past week.

The power

of community

Orion is privileged to

have been associated

with Community Energy

Action (CEA) for more

than twenty years.

CEA is a charitable

trust that provides

insulation and energy

advice services to

the most vulnerable

in our community

with the overriding

objective of creating

warmer, healthier

and more energy

efficient homes.

Results of the Healthy

Homes Project, a recent

study undertaken by the

Canterbury District Health

Board and CEA, shows a

direct correlation between

insulated homes and a

reduction in hospital bed

days by up to 30%.

Working in a collaborative

partnership with CEA has

Many benefits from insulating homes

HEALTHY: A workman installing insulation under the floor of a

Canterbury home.

A successful partnership

between community, health

and commercial organisations

has helped save Canterbury

DHB nearly $1m, by providing

insulation and/or heating to high

health needs patients.

As well as reducing hospital

costs, it has also assisted in ensuring

people can remain in their

own homes.

In 2011, a Healthy Homes programme

was created between the

Canterbury DHB and the three

Canterbury primary health care

organisations, Community Energy

Action, Environment Canterbury

and the Energy Efficiency

Conservation Authority. Orion

and MainPower also contributed

funding into this programme.

The programme was developed

to keep people in their own

homes and communities rather

than using hospital services. This

recognised Canterbury’s compromised

housing stock following

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

The Canterbury DHB and partnering

organisations understood

the potential benefits for frequent

users of the health system of living

in warm and dry homes, including

improved physical and

mental health.

The programme initially focused

on people who had been in

the Christchurch Hospital at least

twice within a year prior to the

programme starting (defined as

being the highest-needs patients).

In July 2013, the programme was

extended to include general practice

patients, for example families

with children under 17 years

of age identified as being at risk

and parents with newborn babies.

The programme ran from 2011

to late 2014 and the whole programme

provided over 1500 insulation

installations and 450

heating appliances. Partnerships

amongst the organisations meant

many Healthy Homes’ clients

were referred to other organisations

and services, as additional

needs were identified.

A qualitative report was completed

by Pegasus Health in June

2015 on the whole programme.

Canterbury DHB invested

$1.7m over 2.5 years between

2011 and 2014, covering 22 per

cent of the total programme costs.

Around half of the $1.7m invested

went towards intervention

costs for the 900 highest-needs

patients, as defined above. The

remaining partnering organisations

covered the balance of the

total costs. Of those 900 highest-need

patients, a significant

number of them were aged over

65. There was an approximately

60 per cent/40 per cent split between

home owners and tenants.

After reviewing the health

data, comparing the year prior

to the interventions with the year

following, the findings showed a

29.2 per cent reduction in hospital

bed days of those 900 patients.

This equates to a reduction of

five bed days per annum, a cost

saving to the Canterbury DHB of

nearly $1m.

“This means the programme

was extremely successful for the

community and all involved including

the Canterbury DHB,”

says Caroline Shone, chief executive

of CEA.

“Whilst the cost for insulation

and heating is a one-off, the

benefits last for years. I’m sure

for the Canterbury DHB the return

on investment can be spent

on other health needs. This programme

was a first for CEA and

the other organisations involved,

I am really happy that we have

helped so many people working

in partnership with Government,

private and public sector organisations.”

Greg Hamilton from the Canterbury

DHB said he was “delighted

with the results.”

David Meates, CEO of Canterbury

DHB said: “This is just

brilliant to see the hard evidence

being brought to life.”

The above analysis only takes

into account one of a number of

benefits (hospitalisation) which

result from improving a home’s

insulation. There are other considerable

benefits to this programme

including:

Hospital benefits after the first

12 months – a single intervention

has a 40-year life span taking into

account the life of the insulation;

benefits to partners, children and

others living in the same dwelling;

benefits to future occupants;

reduction in other primary and

community services required for

intensive post-discharge rehabilitation;

reduction in absenteeism

from work/school for all home

occupants due to improved overall

health; people living in their

own homes with better wellbeing

and feeling safer; and empowerment

through improved physical

health, mental health and/

or an improved general state of

mind/well-being; establishment

of other successful working relationships

with a range of organisations,

with a focus to assist

vulnerable families.

To date, EECA has provided

approximately $450m worth of

subsidies for insulation nationwide

through their programmes,

including Warm Up New Zealand.

The Healthy Home Programme

analysis shows the need to continue

with programmes such as

these, particularly when EECA

and CEA through their own surveys,

have identified that there

are still over 30,000 low income

family homes in Canterbury

alone, with inadequate or no insulation.

There have been other relevant

New Zealand studies and discussions

over the years around the

need to improve housing quality

and the associated health benefits.

Trying out the trombone at Try an Instrument Day

UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra in rehearsal

CHRISTCHURCH SCHOOL OF MUSIC

2015 was a really busy year for the

Christchurch school of Music with lots of

exciting things happening. In september

the school celebrated its Diamond Jubilee

– 60 years of providing excellent music

tuition and ensemble opportunities to

thousands of Cantabrians.

Other highlights of 2015 were working

with G&a Creative to develop a new

website, logo and brand for the school and

the signing of a sponsorship arrangement

with the University of Canterbury for our

flagship orchestra, now known as the UC

Christchurch Youth Orchestra.

Most exciting of all, in December, the

school moved back home onto the site of

the old Music Centre. with the support

of the Catholic Diocese, the school is

housed in four portable buildings on

the site adjacent to Catholic Cathedral

College where all the instrumental and

voice teaching takes place on a saturday

morning and after school. The buildings

will officially open on Friday 13 May

with a celebration to say thank-you to

all the organisations that have supported

us to get to this stage. Many hours of

work have gone into fitting out the new

buildings with furniture, shelving, storage

and teaching materials to ensure it is a

friendly, welcoming and efficient place

for the school to operate from. Particular

thanks to Creative New Zealand and Rata

Foundation who have provided financial

support for the fit out

so along with its new branding, a new

user-friendly website and a great new

place to call home the CsM is in good

heart and enjoying a fantastic year of

music making in 2016.

From pre-schoolers to septuagenarians,

the CsM caters for a wide range of ages

and musical styles offering opportunities

for group or individual tuition in all

instruments and an ensemble to suit

everyone. with orchestras, choirs, jazz

and rock bands, world music ensembles,

wind ensembles and concert bands every

taste is catered for. all ensembles take part

in regular concerts including saturday

soirees and the popular annual showcase

Concert, which will be held this year in

Tips to improve your running

Running should be as easy as

putting one foot in front of the other

right? Anyone can run, but having good

technique can make it feel so much

easier.

good running technique will make

your runs feel less tiring, reduce

your risk of injury, and ultimately

be more enjoyable. Muscle People

Physiotherapists specialise in assessing

and improving running technique

whether you are a competitive runner or

just running for fun.

start getting better now with these basic

tips:

POSTURE

• Keep your head straight

look straight ahead of you, about 30-40

metres out in front and avoid looking

down at your feet. looking down will

create tension in your neck and shoulders.

• shoulders back and down

Your shoulders should be back and down

not up by your ears. Keep them relaxed

and avoid tensing them. don’t hunch

over as this restricts breathing.

• Keep your elbows at 90 degrees

Your elbows should be bent at a 90 degree

angle. Try to swing your arms forward

and back, not across your body. This arm

movement helps to propel you forward.

Your hands should be relaxed, but don’t

let them flop. Tight hands can cause

tension all the way up to the back and

shoulders.

• solid core

Focus on keeping your core (trunk) firm,

though not rigid, and straight and your

• For regular runners - run

hips and shoulders level and relaxed.

Keeping this position in your hips can

help prevent low back and hip pain.

FOOT STRIKE AND LEG POSITION

• don’t strike the ground too heavily

good running is light and quiet. You

should land in the middle of your foot

with a slightly bent knee. Whatever your

weight, your feet should not slap loudly

as they hit the ground. light steps are

more efficient and cause less stress to the

body and landing on the middle of your

foot is the safest way to land for most

recreational runners.

That’s the basics but there’s always more

we can do to help. Try these:

RUNFIT – The technical edge

Muscle People Physiotherapy &

the YMCA gym have a running

group in hagley Park – RunFit, led

by a Physiotherapist and Canterbury

competitive runner, and a Personal

Trainer from the YMCA gym. RunFit

focuses on running technique which

is vital to improving speed, reducing

injuries and making running more

enjoyable for both regular runners

and the beginner. RunFit is ideal for

regular runners who are looking to

challenge themselves, as well as the

beginning runner who wants to start

with good technique and the guidance of

professionals.

diane and Celia have recently

completed a RunFit programme had this

to say:

diane, from st Martins “i’ve had

Call us today on 961 0236

Muscle People Physiotherapy clinics

in the Central City and Bishopdale

three calf injuries in the last 18 months

and i wanted to make sure my running

technique wasn’t contributing to that.

over the course of the RunFit programme

i improved my technique, got faster and

i’m injury free. My training plan is on

track for my first marathon in June.”

Celia, works in sydenham, “RunFit is

the perfect combination of running drills,

core strength and running and i enjoyed

the variety. The core strength training

has helped with my tennis and posture

and i’ve learnt a lot about running form

to help with training in my solo sessions.

The physiotherapist and personal

trainer are fantastic and work really well

together, their on-hand knowledge is

invaluable. The small group environment

is very encouraging and works for all

abilities. i highly recommend RunFit - in

fact i’ve just signed up for more!”

A solid choice for smart buyers

2/57 Withells Rd, Avonhead

Auction: May 19, 2016

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 1 dining room | 1 living room | 2 car-garage | Listing #: PI42934

Invest your hard-earned money with

confidence: this townhouse ticks all the

boxes for great real estate. Start with the

security of permanent materials – clad in

timeless brick with aluminium joinery, this is a

home that will retain its classic good looks with

the minimum of maintenance.

Add in good proportions that will suit many

– three light, bright bedrooms (master with en

suite bathroom) and a separate lounge adjacent

to the open-plan kitchen and dining area will

appeal to families, couples or investors. An

aspect that ensures the home soaks up sunlight

throughout the day and an easy flow from

indoor living spaces to the sunny and secure

garden will keep entertainers, children and pets

equally happy. The convenience of a double

internal-access garage plus additional off-street

parking adds further practical appeal.

A very sought-after location underpins the

value of this investment: handy to schools and

shops, family-friendly and standing on solid

TC1 land. Presented in immaculate condition,

this is a home you can move straight into or

rent out from day one, but astute buyers will

realise there is plenty of potential here for those

wanting to enhance the property and further

capitalise on their investment.

The vendors have already purchased their

next property so 2/57 Withells Road is very

definitely for sale on or before auction day.

Open Homes: Saturday and Sunday, 2pm

to 2.30pm.

viewing, contact Cameron Bailey of Harcourts
