Anti fast-food campaign<br />

calls for Brownlee’s support<br />

District plan<br />

change<br />

may be<br />

an option<br />

• By Tom Doudney<br />

A CAMPAIGN to stop fast<br />

food outlets proliferating<br />

around schools and low income<br />

areas may depend on support<br />

from Greater Christchurch<br />

Regeneration Minister Gerry<br />

Brownlee.<br />

City council<br />

staff briefed<br />

the Hagley-<br />

Ferrymead<br />

Community<br />

Board last<br />

week ahead of<br />

a deputation by<br />

Linwood community members<br />

and Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson<br />

to the city council on <strong>August</strong> 11.<br />

The group, which includes<br />

schools and doctors, want the<br />

city council to take action on the<br />

issue.<br />

A petition supporting the call,<br />

organised by Linwood resident<br />

Tracie Charnock, has received<br />

more than 600 signatures.<br />

Possible methods of tackling<br />

the matter include a bylaw, district<br />

plan change or national policy<br />

statement by the Government.<br />

City council solicitor Vivienne<br />

Wilson advised that creating<br />

a bylaw could be difficult and<br />

there were many questions that<br />

would have to be resolved, including<br />

how fast food stores and<br />

low socio-economic areas would<br />

be defined.<br />

“My job is try and keep the<br />

Special introductory offer<br />

real concerns about that,” Ms<br />

Wilson said.<br />

“I have no doubt that if we try<br />

and do something novel and<br />

new with a bylaw, we will be<br />

challenged.”<br />

City council team leader<br />

policy Claire Bryant advised<br />

that the district plan had been<br />

finalised and, due to earthquake<br />

recovery legislation, it would<br />

now be difficult to make changes<br />

before 2021 unless Mr Brownlee<br />

ordered them.<br />

Community board<br />

chairwoman Sara Templeton<br />

said all options sounded<br />

“difficult and time consuming,<br />

which is a real concern” but<br />

the quickest way to get a result<br />

would probably be for the city<br />

council to ask Mr Brownlee to<br />

make the district plan changes.<br />

However, she believed Mr<br />

Brownlee might be unwilling<br />

to do so, given a letter of<br />

expectations he had written<br />

indicating obstacles to<br />

development in the district plan<br />

should be removed.<br />

City councillor Yani Johanson<br />

said he would be in favour of<br />

asking Mr Brownlee to make<br />

changes.<br />

“I can’t see any reasons why<br />

[a plan change] couldn’t happen<br />

quite quickly,” Cr Johanson said.<br />

“We have one of the most<br />

permissive plans in the country<br />

which allows anything to go<br />

anywhere.”<br />

Mr Brownlee did not respond<br />

to a request for comment.<br />

East resigns from<br />

alcohol working party<br />

• By Shelley Robinson<br />

CITY COUNCILLOR David<br />

East has resigned from a<br />

working party negotiating with<br />

opponents to a controversial<br />

alcohol policy.<br />

He did so in a bid to prevent<br />

the 19 appellants to the city<br />

council’s provisional local alcohol<br />

policy using it as grounds for<br />

judicial review, after it emerged<br />

he had made a submission<br />

opposing several points of the<br />

policy in 2013.<br />

It was made before he was<br />

elected.<br />

In October, the LAP will come<br />

under scrutiny at an Alcohol<br />

Regulatory and Licensing Authority<br />

hearing.<br />

The contentious LAP would<br />

force most bars to close at 1am,<br />

except those in a small central<br />

city zone. It would also restrict<br />

off-licence hours from 9am to<br />

9pm.<br />

The working party of five city<br />

councillors, including Cr East,<br />

was formed to negotiate with<br />

the appellants before the hearing.<br />

Cr East who represents the<br />

Burwood-<strong>Pegasus</strong> ward made a<br />

submission on the policy in 2013<br />

when it was being drafted and<br />

asked the city council whether<br />

it was concerned it could be<br />

used by the appellants due to a<br />

perceived conflict of interest or<br />

predetermination.<br />

City council’s head of strategic<br />

policy Helen Beaumont said<br />

it was satisfied the submission<br />

did not raise “any particular<br />

concerns”.<br />

“There is nothing to suggest<br />

that Cr East has not maintained<br />

an open mind in being a part<br />

of the council’s working party,”<br />

she said.<br />

Cr East said he resigned from<br />

the working party on Monday<br />

“in part” because of inquiries by<br />

The Star newspaper.<br />

He said he had forgotten he<br />

had made a submission but as a<br />

precautionary measure he chose<br />

to resign.<br />

“It is a course of action I<br />

would have taken in any situation.<br />

If there was a potential<br />

conflict it is better to be out of it<br />

and not have a reason for judicial<br />

review or whatever,” he said.<br />

In his 2013 submission he said<br />

licences should be issued on<br />

the merit of the application and<br />

closing times “at the discretion”<br />

of the licensing authority.<br />

He wrote that bars that<br />

close at 1am would impact the<br />

financial viability of some and<br />

that the LAP was restrictive on<br />

trade and did not address the<br />

“real issues of pre-loading” with<br />

alcohol.<br />

In Brief<br />

NEIGHBOURHOOD WEEK<br />

Applications are now open<br />

for a small subsidy from the<br />

Shirley-Papanui Community<br />

Board for activities celebrating<br />

neighbourhood week. The closing<br />

date for applications is <strong>August</strong> 19<br />

at 5pm. For more information, go<br />

to www.ccc.govt.nz<br />

FUNDING APPROVED<br />

The Shirley-Papanui Community<br />

Board has granted $11,000 from<br />

its discretionary response fund<br />

for three projects. It approved<br />

$2000 to Te Ora Hou Otautahi<br />

Inc for Te Pihi Ora Hou after<br />

school mentoring programme,<br />

$4000 for neighbourhood week,<br />

and $5000 for Canterbury Cook<br />

Island Sports to host more events.<br />

BLOOD DONATIONS<br />

A mobile blood service will be<br />

up and running in New Brighton<br />

from Wednesday next week.<br />

The service will be set up at<br />

New Brighton’s Grace Vineyard<br />

Church, 111 Seaview Rd, on<br />

Wednesday, <strong>August</strong> 17 from<br />

2-6pm. Phone 0800 448 325 to<br />

book an appointment.<br />

ENSOR RD WORKS<br />

Ensors Rd near the intersection<br />

with Fifield Tce has been reduced<br />

to one lane and will remain so<br />

for about five weeks. Temporary<br />

traffic lights are in place but<br />

expect significant delays during<br />

peak times.<br />

NO STOPPING APPROVED<br />

The Shirley-Papanui Community<br />

Board has approved no stopping<br />

lines on five streets. Sail, Wiremu,<br />

Dalriada Sts and St James Ave,<br />

Brenton Close and Langdons Rd<br />

all had no stopping restrictions<br />

approved at last Wednesday’s<br />

meeting. Wiremu St also had<br />

P120 parking restrictions<br />

proposed for it but the board<br />

decided parking on the street<br />

was not bad enough to warrant<br />

restrictions.<br />

COMMUNITY CENTRE<br />

Plans for the new St Albans<br />

Community Centre will come<br />

back to the Shirley-Papanui<br />

Community Board for sign off<br />

before heading into the detailed<br />

design process. Board chairman<br />

Mike Davidson was pleased with<br />

the momentum of the project<br />

saying it was a huge priority for<br />

the board. The plans will be at the<br />

board meeting on <strong>August</strong> 17.<br />

LAST WEEK I mentioned<br />

heading to a fire investigation<br />

about the time I was writing the<br />

column. That incident turned out<br />

to be the fatal fire that occurred<br />

in Woolston and involved<br />

Gardening<br />

several days on the scene for<br />

investigators.<br />

While inquiries continue, I can<br />

say that any situation in which<br />

people are living where flame is<br />

involved in any cooking, heating<br />

or lighting makes for a heightened<br />

level of risk from fire.<br />

I regularly report the instances<br />

of cooking or kitchen fires here.<br />

to sympathy for the poor mum<br />

didn’t have a battery. Which<br />

could have made a bad situation<br />

tragic!<br />

Winter weather has had an effect<br />

on fire calls in the city. Crews<br />

attended 18 car crashes this week.<br />

They also went to 20 ambulance<br />

which eight involved fatalities.<br />

Cold, wet weather seems to be<br />

one of the influences. It means<br />

we should be extra careful driving<br />

Sarah beats cancer again;<br />

now she’s helping others<br />

• By Bridget Rutherford<br />

SARAH O’KEEFE is used to<br />

facing challenges.<br />

The 32-year-old was diagnosed<br />

with hodgkin’s lymphoma, a<br />

type of cancer, about 10 years ago<br />

and since then has fought off the<br />

disease three times.<br />

Now she faces a different challenge<br />

– going on a road trip with<br />

her mother, Lynne, to the West<br />

Coast on scooters to raise money<br />

for the Cancer Society of New<br />

Zealand.<br />

The pair will be among 250<br />

people to ride the 250km from<br />

Christchurch to Hokitika on<br />

scooters as part of the Tranz Alpine<br />

Scooter Safari on September<br />

10 – and it will be a new experience<br />

for both of them.<br />

“Mum’s never ridden one, and<br />

I only have in Rarotonga,” Sarah<br />

said.<br />

With the help of Aked Mobile<br />

Hose and Fittings, where Sarah’s<br />

partner Matt works, they were<br />

able to buy new scooters, and race<br />

jackets.<br />

Sarah was diagnosed with<br />

hodgkin’s, which originates from<br />

a specific type of white blood<br />

cells, just months after her 21st<br />

birthday. She underwent chemotherapy,<br />

and got the all clear<br />

about 10 months later. But the<br />

following year it was back. After<br />

radiation treatment, Sarah was<br />

given the all clear for a second<br />

time.<br />

But 10 years later, in November,<br />

she began to have stomach pains.<br />

The doctor initially believed it<br />

was gallstones, but it turned<br />

out she had tumours in her<br />

stomach.<br />

“If its going to come back it<br />

generally comes back within a<br />

couple of years, so it’s kind of<br />

unusual its come back 10 years<br />

later.”<br />

Second tunnel plan mooted<br />

• By Tom Doudney<br />

A SECOND<br />

ashion<br />

road tunnel between<br />

Christchurch and Lyttelton will<br />

be needed in about 20 years due<br />

to growth in freight transport,<br />

the port boss says.<br />

Lyttelton Port Company chief<br />

executive Peter Davie said a<br />

“guestimate” from an engineer<br />

had put the cost of a second tunnel<br />

in the region of $500 million,<br />

and funding it would probably<br />

fall to road control authorities.<br />

WESTMINSTER Sports Inc<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

no longer has the funds or a<br />

commitment from its member<br />

clubs to continue offering sports<br />

programmes.<br />

The organisation started in<br />

2006 and combined the interests<br />

of a number of sports clubs and<br />

asty Bites<br />

organisations clustered around<br />

Mairehau, Marshland, Shirley,<br />

Papanui, Merivale, St Albans<br />

and Redwood, with more than<br />

2000 members from eight different<br />

sports codes.<br />

to say, ‘if we have got this volume<br />

of cargo in 20 years time, how<br />

are we going to handle it’?”<br />

Mr Davie said the logical thing<br />

would be for one tunnel to serve<br />

port traffic, possibly bypassing<br />

Norwich Quay in Lyttelton and<br />

connecting directly to the port.<br />

Member clubs unanimously<br />

accepted the recommendation<br />

of the board to wind up the operations<br />

of the organisation at a<br />

special general meeting in June.<br />

Chairman Rob Smith said<br />

while it’s a regrettable and difficult<br />

decision to make, this was<br />

something that had been looming<br />

for some time.<br />

“This reflects the significant<br />

challenges associated with running<br />

a viable sporting organisation<br />

in the current environment,”<br />

he said.<br />

Mr Smith said there was a<br />

New Zealand Transport<br />

Agency director southern region<br />

Jim Harland said the tunnel<br />

still had significant capacity to<br />

accommodate further growth in<br />

traffic volumes before a solution<br />

would be needed. Increasing<br />

use of rail to the port would also<br />

discussed as part of the Greater<br />

Christchurch Freight Management<br />

Study, and was suggested<br />

as a long term option, subject to<br />

a comprehensive business case<br />

analysis at the appropriate time,”<br />

Mr Harland said.<br />

Westminster Sports winds up<br />

number of factors that contributed<br />

to the idea not working.<br />

He said the financial position<br />

of the organisation was such that<br />

operation beyond a two to three<br />

month time frame was not viable<br />

and member clubs were not engaged<br />

to the degree necessary to<br />

ensure or create a viable business<br />

model.<br />

Sport Canterbury chief executive<br />

Julyan Falloon said while<br />

it was a concern for those clubs<br />

involved, plenty survive without<br />

the aid of organisations like<br />

Westminster Sports.<br />

In Brief<br />

TREES TO BE REMOVED<br />

The Burwood-<strong>Pegasus</strong> has<br />

approved the removal of 29 street<br />

and park trees to allow the first<br />

stage of the Avon Temporary<br />

Stopbanks reconstruction<br />

works. The board expressed a<br />

wish that the suggested trees<br />

be removed only if absolutely<br />

necessary noting that this was<br />

the first stage of the project. It<br />

has asked city council parks<br />

staff to provide it with a plan to<br />

replace the trees where possible.<br />

They will advise the board if<br />

the replacement trees would be<br />

exotic, native or a combination.<br />

Board member David East<br />

wished his vote against the<br />

removal recorded.<br />

TWO TAKEN TO HOSPITAL<br />

A man was taken to<br />

Christchurch Hospital in a<br />

moderate condition after two<br />

cars crashed in Woolston. St<br />

John sent an ambulance to<br />

the scene at the intersection of<br />

Linwood Ave and Humphreys<br />

Dr about 10.45am. The man<br />

was assessed at the scene and<br />

taken to hospital for further<br />

treatment. Another person was<br />

taken to hospital after two cars<br />

crashed in Marshland. St John<br />

took a person from the scene on<br />

Marshland Rd at about 1pm with<br />

minor injuries.<br />

FUNDING GRANTED<br />

The Burwood-<strong>Pegasus</strong> Community<br />

Board has approved funding<br />

for St Thomas of Canterbury<br />

College students Sua Aiiloilo<br />

and Amani Khoi to attend<br />

the New Zealand Secondary<br />

Schools Rugby League National<br />

Tournament held in Auckland<br />

from <strong>August</strong> 29 to September 2.<br />

The money came from its youth<br />

development fund. The board<br />

also approved $3730 for Pleasant<br />

Point Yacht Club Incorporated<br />

towards the purchase of a replacement<br />

12m container from<br />

its discretionary response fund.<br />

REPAIRS STARTED<br />

Fulton Hogan has started<br />

repairing a large section of<br />

earthquake-damaged wastewater<br />

pipe near the intersection of<br />

Halsey St and Estuary Rd as<br />

of yesterday. There will be no<br />

vehicle access to properties 319<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

Cherry blossoms mark quake deaths<br />

• By Annabelle Dick<br />

TWENTY EIGHT young<br />

Japanese language students<br />

lost their lives when the CTV<br />

building collapsed during the<br />

February 22, 2011, quake.<br />

Now eight cherry blossom<br />

trees will be planted in the<br />

Botanic Gardens at a ceremony<br />

tomorrow (<strong>August</strong> 10) at<br />

2.30pm to honour their memory.<br />

The trees, donated by the<br />

city of Ishinomaki, Japan, will<br />

be planted at the World Peace<br />

Bell garden to honour victims<br />

of New Zealand and Japan’s<br />

earthquakes.<br />

Just weeks after the February<br />

quake, Japan was struck by<br />

a devastating magnitude 9<br />

earthquake and tsunami which<br />

killed about 16,000 people. The<br />

city of Ishinomaki lost more<br />

than 3000 people.<br />

New Zealand World Peace<br />

Bell member David Bolam-<br />

Smith said the commemoration<br />

project came about when he<br />

met Japanese families and<br />

representatives at the five-year<br />

anniversary in February.<br />

Zen Buddhist priest Taigen<br />

Goto was there on behalf of<br />

one of the families when Mr<br />

Bolam-Smith invited him to<br />

ring the peace bell to pray for<br />

the Japanese students lost in the<br />

CTV building.<br />

Mr Bolam-Smith said he was<br />

telling Mr Goto about his plans<br />

to plant cherry trees from the<br />

bell to the river when he offered<br />

some help.<br />

“He pulled out his wallet<br />

and gave me $500 dollars on<br />

the spot and said, ‘please plant<br />

cherry trees here to remember<br />

the people who died in the<br />

Christchurch earthquake<br />

and the tsunami and<br />

quakes in Japan’,” Mr Bolam-<br />

Smith said.<br />

After planting trees in<br />

Christchurch, Mr Bolam-Smith<br />

will travel to Mr Goto’s home<br />

city of Ishinomaki to return<br />

the favour by planting cherry<br />

blossoms.<br />

“We’re building a cherry<br />

blossom bridge between the two<br />

countries,” he said.<br />

Ishinomaki is home to a<br />

training facility being built for<br />

the Rugby World Cup in 2019.<br />

Mr Bolam-Smith will visit the<br />

city in September to plant the<br />

trees outside the stadium in the<br />

presence of Japan Rugby Football<br />

Union representatives and the<br />

city mayor.<br />

He will travel to Japan on<br />

September 1.<br />

He is also urging residents to<br />

attend the public tree-planting<br />

ceremony at the Botanic Gardens’<br />

World Peace Bell.<br />

A BLOSSOMING CONNECTION: David Bolam-Smith will plant cherry blossom trees in both<br />

Christchurch and Ishinomaki, Japan, to honour the lives of earthquake victims who perished in<br />

the CTV building.<br />

Familiar face at the theatre<br />

Pam Lutton first offered to help out with ushering a<br />

show at the Isaac Theatre Royal 35 years ago. Georgia<br />

O’Connor-Harding talked to her about the changing face<br />

of the theatre, rubbing shoulders with the prime minister<br />

and what it’s like to have an Olympian in the family.<br />

MRS LUTTON now spends her<br />

days working front-of-house at<br />

the theatre, greeting customers,<br />

taking tickets and making sure<br />

everything runs smoothly.<br />

“I said I would only do it for<br />

the weekend and here I am 35<br />

years later,” she said.<br />

Mrs Lutton, 67, of Burwood,<br />

described herself as a “nervous<br />

person” before starting her job.<br />

“It gives you confidence<br />

because I was brought up in a<br />

boarding school with nuns . .<br />

. you didn’t have a lot of confidence<br />

when you get out of there,”<br />

she said.<br />

Now she has rubbed shoulders<br />

with the likes of Prime Minster<br />

John Key, former prime minsters<br />

Helen Clark and Jenny Shipley,<br />

and celebrities including Dame<br />

Kiri Te Kanawa.<br />

And times have changed since<br />

Mrs Lutton began working at the<br />

Isaac Theatre Royal in 1981.<br />

“Once upon a time it was only<br />

a part-time job. You would have<br />

shows probably once every two<br />

months. Now we have got something<br />

going nearly all the time,”<br />

she said.<br />

Mrs Lutton has spent so much<br />

time at the theatre that one night<br />

about 25 years ago she, along<br />

with several others, camped out<br />

at the theatre to ghost watch.<br />

“My friend Julie McKenzie says<br />

(the theatre) is haunted but I have<br />

never seen the ghosts.”<br />

Mrs Lutton grew up in Cronadun<br />

on the West Coast before<br />

attending St Mary’s School in<br />

Hokitika.<br />

She comes from a sporting<br />

family and one of her daughters<br />

has represented New Zealand at<br />

the Commonwealth Games.<br />

Her daughter Tania came<br />

fourth in shot put at the 1998<br />

Commonwealth Games in Kuala<br />

Lumpur.<br />

Her son Deane works as a professional<br />

rugby coach in Japan,<br />

while another daughter Nina had<br />

a flair for swimming, but gave<br />

up the sport to pursue tertiary<br />

studies.<br />

She is also very proud of her<br />

nephew, Tom Walsh, who will<br />

compete at the Rio Olympics on<br />

<strong>August</strong> 19.<br />

Mrs Lutton has a passion for<br />

sports herself, having raced<br />

in marathons, including the<br />

Christchurch Marathon.<br />

But in spite of her interest in<br />

sports, Mrs Lutton loved the performing<br />

arts from a young age.<br />

“The nuns used to have us<br />

ballroom dancing in the hall, We<br />

did the dancing but weren’t allowed<br />

to do anything too crude<br />

or sexy.”<br />

She described working<br />

at the theatre as a “luxury<br />

job” and missed it when the<br />

theatre closed after the earthquakes.<br />

FRONT-OF-HOUSE:<br />

Pam Lutton has<br />

been working at the<br />

Isaac Theatre Royal<br />

for 35 years. She is<br />

also the proud aunt<br />

of Olympian shot<br />

putter Tom Walsh<br />

who will compete<br />

in Rio on <strong>August</strong> 19.<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

William Stedman<br />

Athlete’s first paralympics<br />

Christchurch’s William<br />

Stedman, 16, will debut<br />

at the Rio de Janeiro<br />

Paralympics in September.<br />

He spoke to reporter Caitlin<br />

Miles about how he hasn’t<br />

let cerebral palsy stop him<br />

from competing and what<br />

inspired him to become a<br />

paralympic athlete<br />

Congratulations on getting a<br />

grant from Inspire Foundation.<br />

Thank you. Yeah, it’s really<br />

cool, it’ll help me out a lot to get<br />

things I need before heading to<br />

Rio. I’m really thankful that they<br />

gave me the money. They’re a<br />

great foundation.<br />

How much money did<br />

you receive? What will it go<br />

towards?<br />

I got $1000, so that will go<br />

towards paying for orthotics<br />

and shoes and that kind of stuff.<br />

The New Zealand Paralympics<br />

covers our entry costs and stuff,<br />

which is a big relief because it’s<br />

not cheap. The money I got from<br />

the foundation can be focused on<br />

getting me the things I need for<br />

it, not just pay to compete.<br />

Congratulations, too, on<br />

heading to Rio – are you<br />

excited?<br />

I fly out tomorrow so I’m pretty<br />

excited. I’ve been doing a lot<br />

of training and stuff so it’s still<br />

pretty surreal. The other people<br />

I’ve met in the paralympic team<br />

are really great so it’s going to be<br />

really cool.<br />

How long have you been<br />

training for?<br />

I kind of never stop training. It<br />

gets ramped up and more intense<br />

closer to the time, but I’m always<br />

training. When I went to the<br />

world champs in Doha, I didn’t<br />

know I was going until about two<br />

weeks before. I didn’t think I had<br />

got in so, when I found out I had,<br />

there was a bit more pressure to<br />

train harder. I had been training<br />

constantly anyway, but that<br />

uncertainty was annoying. It was<br />

such a big event and competition<br />

to be a part of so the idea of<br />

missing out was hard, so it was<br />

even better when I found out I<br />

DRIVE: William Stedman spends more than 10 hours a week<br />

training for events and competitions, such as the paralympics.<br />

had got in.<br />

How did you fund that? It<br />

must have been hard to get<br />

all the money and everything<br />

together in a short amount of<br />

time?<br />

Well my parents were really<br />

good about it. They helped<br />

me out big time with getting<br />

everything together in not much<br />

time. I guess it was such a big<br />

thing for me and a really great<br />

opportunity they didn’t want me<br />

to miss out either.<br />

Is this your first year going to<br />

the paralympics?<br />

Yeah, it is. It’s really exciting to<br />

be going over.<br />

What classifies you as a<br />

paralympian?<br />

I have cerebral palsy so the left<br />

side of my body is a bit slower<br />

and doesn’t react as quickly. I<br />

was classed as T28, which was bit<br />

too hard for me to compete in. I<br />

am now classed at T36 and that<br />

made a big change to how I can<br />

compete. It’s much easier for<br />

me and I compete better and<br />

a little easier, which gives me<br />

a good chance to compete<br />

professionally and go to worlds<br />

and stuff.<br />

Why did you decide to<br />

become an athlete?<br />

I have always been pretty<br />

active. I enjoy sport. It wasn’t<br />

until I saw the 2012 London<br />

Paralympics and I thought, ‘I can<br />

do that, why can’t I do that?’ So<br />

I decided to get serious about it<br />

and see what I can do.<br />

So you’ve been competing for<br />

four years?<br />

No, not at first. I wanted to<br />

get into running and see what it<br />

was like. I joined the Port Hills<br />

Athletics Club and I started<br />

long distance running with the<br />

club. It wasn’t until 2014 when<br />

I started training properly for<br />

competitions.<br />

What events do you compete<br />

in?<br />

I do the 400m, 800m running<br />

events and the long jump.<br />

How often do you train and<br />

what’s involved?<br />

I train roughly seven times a<br />

week. That’s about 10-11 hours.<br />

It might not sound like much<br />

but it’s pretty high intensity stuff.<br />

I do a lot of different exercises<br />

over the week. I’ll do short<br />

distance running, long distance,<br />

endurance stuff, running up<br />

and down stairs and hills, gym<br />

sessions and all of that kind of<br />

stuff. I usually get two days off<br />

a week. Sometimes I’ll train on<br />

Sundays, though.<br />

How does your body cope<br />

with that? Do your muscles<br />

struggle?<br />

No, my muscles handle it<br />

pretty well, but my left side is<br />

just slower and I have less muscle<br />

control over it so it doesn’t move<br />

as well. I started off running long<br />

distances and then I switched<br />

to shorter distances. I think it’s<br />

because my body can handle<br />

shorter distances better. I’m more<br />

NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf 1 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m.<br />

of a middle distance runner now.<br />

As I get older, I might go back to<br />

doing longer distances.<br />

How do you balance school<br />

and training? Is it your first<br />

year of exams?<br />

Yeah, I’m doing NCEA level 1<br />

this year, so there is a bit going<br />

on. My school is really supportive<br />

of my sport so that’s a big help.<br />

They understand there is a lot<br />

going on so I balance it. I’ve got<br />

to stay really motivated to be able<br />

to do both.<br />

Do you ever worry about<br />

cerebral palsy stopping you<br />

from running and competing?<br />

I never really think about it<br />

to be honest. I make sure I look<br />

after myself. It’s important to me<br />

to compete and be a good athlete,<br />

but I also know to look after<br />

myself. I’m not too worried about<br />

having to stop. Not at this stage<br />

anyway. I have had a couple of<br />

injuries but nothing too serious.<br />

I had a bone stress injury in my<br />

foot when I competed, which<br />

was painful, but nothing that has<br />

made me think about stopping.<br />

Has anyone ever told you<br />

that you shouldn’t be an athlete<br />

because of cerebral palsy?<br />

No. I’m really lucky. I’ve had so<br />

much support from my parents<br />

and my friends and my school.<br />

My coach, George Edwards, is<br />

really great, too. I also think<br />

paralympics are getting more<br />

support and recognition, which<br />

is really cool. It’s not so hidden<br />

anymore. There is a lot more<br />

support for us athletes, which I<br />

think is a really great thing to see.<br />

Do you see yourself as a role<br />

model for other people with<br />

disabilities?<br />

I wouldn’t call myself a role<br />

model. Not at the moment<br />

anyway. I’d like to be a role model<br />

in the future, though. I think it’s<br />

just really cool that paralympics<br />

is becoming a bigger event and<br />

getting more people to celebrate<br />

us. It gets more coverage in the<br />

media, more people recognise us<br />

as athletes that have disabilities<br />

and support us. Not just here, but<br />

around the world, which is really<br />

cool. It’s a big step forward.<br />

Overpasses planned for Brougham St<br />

• By Tom Doudney<br />

REPLACING Brougham St<br />

intersections with overpasses<br />

would solve a lot of traffic<br />

problems, Lyttelton Port<br />

Company chief executive Peter<br />

Davie says.<br />

Overpasses are being considered<br />

as part of a programme<br />

business case for<br />

State Highway 76,<br />

which includes<br />

Brougham St,<br />

led by New Zealand<br />

Transport<br />

Agency.<br />

Key stakeholders<br />

including the port company,<br />

the city council and KiwiRail are<br />

also involved.<br />

Mr Davie said the port company<br />

had some concerns about<br />

congestion on Brougham St – a<br />

major transport route to and<br />

from the port.<br />

JAM PACKED: Traffic congestion on Brougham St could be<br />

eased by putting in overpasses. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

“There is twice the traffic<br />

ACHIEVERS<br />

trying to get across Brougham<br />

St as there is down it. If you<br />

think about why you have got<br />

ACHIEVERS<br />

congestion, you have actually got<br />

a whole lot of crossings where<br />

trucks and cars are stopping the<br />

whole way down,” he said.<br />

“It seems pretty obvious that<br />

you would need to try and do<br />

away with that congestion by<br />

[roads] going over or under<br />

each other.”<br />

NZTA director southern<br />

region Jim Harland said overpasses<br />

would reduce the number<br />

of conflicting movements at<br />

intersections but the pros and<br />

cons of this option compared to<br />

others still needed to be established.<br />

“The cost has not yet been<br />

determined, but would be<br />

significant given the cost of<br />

adjacent land along Brougham<br />

St,” Mr Harland said.<br />

Mr Davie said there were<br />

perhaps three or four major<br />

intersections on Brougham St<br />

and putting overpasses on two<br />

of them would go a long way to<br />

fixing the problem.<br />

“Your only other option really<br />

is to three-lane Brougham St<br />

which means you take all the<br />

parking out,” he said.<br />

Average daily traffic volumes<br />

on Brougham St have risen from<br />

35,019 movements a day in 2006<br />

to 38,525 in 2015.<br />

Mr Davie said that with just<br />

four per cent of the traffic volume<br />

being comprised of vehicles<br />

travelling to or from the port, its<br />

contribution to congestion was<br />

low.<br />

The volume of goods going to<br />

and from the port was expected<br />

to increase steadily in the years<br />

ahead due to growth in Canterbury’s<br />

exports and imports.<br />

However, some of that increase<br />

could be accommodated by<br />

moving goods by rail.<br />

Shirley Boys’ to face top side in semis<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School<br />

will face an in-form Christ’s<br />

College in this weekend’s UC<br />

Championship semi-finals.<br />

Shirley Boys’ finished the<br />

round-robin on Saturday with a<br />

13-19 loss to Christchurch Boys’<br />

High School. It could have been<br />

a different story though, after the<br />

scores were tied at seven a piece<br />

at half-time.<br />

Trailing 13-14 with less than<br />

10min remaining, first-five Taine<br />

Jacobs-Lawson had a chance to<br />

win the game for Shirley Boys’<br />

with a penalty attempt. His<br />

shot at goal missed, CBHS then<br />

wrapped up the game with a try<br />

in the final minute.<br />

The result means they go into<br />

the semis as the fourth qualifier<br />

behind Christ’s, CBHS and<br />

Nelson College.<br />

They will play Christ’s College<br />

in this Saturday’s semi-final.<br />

SPORTS<br />

SPORTS<br />

CLOSE: Shirley came agonizingly close to making it two<br />

consecutive wins over CBHS. A try in the final minute gave<br />

the hosts a 19-13 victory.<br />

The two sides played recently, the July 23 meeting 33-10.<br />

with Christ’s College winning Shirley Boys’ rugby manager<br />

John Fox knows how tough getting<br />

a result against the competition’s<br />

top side will be.<br />

“Playing them on upper is<br />

always a tough task, we will go<br />

into the game with nothing to<br />

lose. We’ve achieved our goal<br />

of making the top four so anything<br />

from here is a bonus,” said<br />

Fox.<br />

Christ’s College wrapped up<br />

top spot in emphatic fashion,<br />

demolishing St Andrew’s 67-19.<br />

The win means that they will<br />

now host their first ever UC<br />

championship semi-final.<br />

“It will be huge atmosphere<br />

at Upper on Saturday, it’s<br />

been a long time since the<br />

school has had a game like<br />

this to celebrate,” said Stephen<br />

Dods, Christ’s College rugby<br />

SCHOOL OPTIONS – early and middle years 2017<br />

Getting Parents Involved<br />

MerrIn BelIeveS that effective<br />

school-home partnerships can enhance<br />

children’s learning. These partnerships are<br />

also welcome within the school to give<br />

students an extra boost through various<br />

programmes which would not be available<br />

without parent input.<br />

examples of these programmes are<br />

our group of Parent reading tutors<br />

whom work alongside 2 students three<br />

times a week and the Perceptual Motor<br />

Programme which helps enhance<br />

our tāmariki’s movement skills and<br />

understanding of language.<br />

Including and encouraging parents to<br />

be active participants within learning<br />

discussions is another growth area<br />

at Merrin.<br />

These opportunities are provided<br />

through our Merrin ICt Community<br />

Blog providing instant online support<br />

and information about BYOD and<br />

digital citizenship through a specially<br />

designed portal, giving parents interactive<br />

responses to questions.<br />

There is a regular Monday Parent<br />

Drop in Centre for parents to ask<br />

questions while having a chat and cup of<br />

coffee. Parent information workshops<br />

also pop up regularly throughout the year<br />

on a variety of topics.<br />

Merrin is always looking for ways to<br />

enhance and grow our partnership with<br />

parents for the benefit of all our tāmariki.<br />

and spirit.<br />

This term the Cathedral Grammar<br />

community have welcomed Scott<br />

Thelning as our new Principal. Scott is an<br />

experienced principal from Christchurch<br />

who is passionate about our city and<br />

ensuring that Grammar is a valued part<br />

of the rejuvenation of our CBD. He is<br />

looking forward to working with our<br />

girls are educated separately, allowing for<br />

dedicated single-sex learning that meets<br />

the needs of each gender, alongside many<br />

opportunities to mix and develop social<br />

help our pupils to become engaged<br />

thinkers, enterprising spirits and<br />

HEALTH & BEAUTY<br />

A game changer in the fight<br />

against Parkinson’s Disease<br />

If you have Parkinson’s disease, you cannot<br />

afford to underestimate the benefits of<br />

exercise. Being sedentary is one of the fastest<br />

ways to see your symptoms get worse. To be<br />

the best you can be, consider a revolutionary<br />

Parkinson’s programme, PD Warrior, run by<br />

Muscle People Physiotherapy.<br />

“Exercise needs to be a front line defence<br />

for people with Parkinson’s disease. PD<br />

Warrior aims to re-wire the brain to allow<br />

everyday movements and activities to be<br />

performed with greater ease. Just like your<br />

muscles benefit from cross- training, your<br />

brain also benefits from being challenged and<br />

surprised.” Melissa McConaghy, co-founder<br />

of PD Warrior and Specialist Neurological<br />

Physiotherapist.<br />

Purposeful movement can combat the loss<br />

of motor control seen in Parkinson’s disease.<br />

PD Warrior combines a high effort, intensive<br />

work-out with a challenging combination<br />

of movements and mental strategy. It is<br />

designed for people with early stage or mild<br />

Parkinson’s disease with the aim of slowing<br />

down the progress of the disease.<br />

“PD Warrior is loads of fun and can get<br />

very loud with plenty of variety to keep<br />

people engaged. you get to connect with<br />

like-minded people who want to fight their<br />

symptoms,” says Laurie Moore, Director of<br />

Muscle People Physiotherapy.<br />

Neil, from Rangiora, has been attending<br />

the PD Warrior programme and says; “The<br />

exaggerated movement keeps the body<br />

moving rather than seizing up”. Neil keeps<br />

up the exercises at home during the week and<br />

says “that’s how you get the most benefit out<br />

of it.” He has been playing more golf and is<br />

able to work a couple of days a week.<br />

Muscle People has helped clients achieve<br />

some significant milestones through PD<br />

Warrior. Those who come to the PD Warrior<br />

circuit style programme at the city clinic each<br />

week report feeling more confident in their<br />

movements and are able to move more freely<br />

and get back into life.<br />

The first step in the PD Warrior<br />

programme is an assessment at Muscle<br />

People Physiotherapy. for more information<br />

or to book your assessment telephone the<br />

friendly team at Muscle People on<br />

360 3606.”<br />

PD Warrior not only re-trains your<br />

brain, it also helps you to get -<br />

• Your life back – get back to doing<br />

the things you love.<br />

• Stronger and healthier, so you feel<br />

better about yourself.<br />

• More comfortable doing several<br />

things at one time.<br />

• Better balance... prevent<br />

dangerous accidents and falls.<br />

• Able to do all the little things that<br />

you have recently abandoned.<br />

Parkinson’s -<br />

• Parkinson’s is a progressive<br />

neurodegenerative condition<br />

which effects the part of the brain<br />

responsible for initiating and coordinating<br />

movement.<br />

• Approximately 1 in 500 people<br />

have the condition.<br />

• Twenty percent of people affected<br />

by Parkinson’s are of working age<br />

(15-64 years).<br />

PD Warrior -<br />

• Uses a unique combination of<br />

physical and cognitive activities to<br />

drive the brain’s natural ability to<br />

re-wire itself.<br />

• PD Warrior retrains the brain<br />

and helps people feel stronger and<br />

fitter.<br />

• Muscle People Physiotherapy run<br />

the PD Warrior each week with a<br />

group of 10 people.<br />

What type of Parkinson’s do you have?<br />

Knowing the answer to this question can slow down your Parkinson’s and<br />

help you to look, move and feel better.<br />
