Funding woes unresolved

for hot salt water pools

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

WHILE THE location of New

Brighton’s hot salt water pools is

being narrowed down, whether

the project will go ahead still

hangs in the balance, with crucial

funding still yet to be found.

Development Christchurch

Ltd, a city council-owned

company charged with the

suburb’s rejuvenation, said it

was still seeking funding for the

project.

Last year, the city council

committed $5 million to the

project but it will need more

than that to go ahead, said DCL

chief executive Rob Hall.

“As we stand we still need

to secure funding otherwise

there will be no project,” he

said.

The amount of funding needed

by DCL is not yet known, as

Mr Hall said the information

is “commercially sensitive”

and will be released sometime

after the meeting with the city

council.

But the location has been

narrowed down to between the

pier and the New Brighton Surf

Lifesaving Club, he said.

DCL has four projects in New

Brighton, including the hot salt

water pools. The $2.4 million

North Beach promenade, the

suburb’s commercial core, and a

“quick wins” category.

A feasibility report for both the

hot salt pools and the promenade

will be presented to the city

council by the end of the month,

but residents will have to wait

as the meeting will be behind

closed doors.

New Brighton is also

undergoing a “deep clean” of

streets, foreshore and beach

areas to tidy up the suburb.

Mr Hall said it was also trying

to remove “road blocks” in the

way of potential investors being

attracted to the area.

PEGASUS POST

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News......................3, 5, 6 & 7

A FEW years ago, back when I

was cutting my reporter teeth

on the Pegasus Post, I remember

the community’s frustration

to get the pedestrian mall and

surrounding streets cleaned

regularly. It seemed like such a

basic thing to provide and I was

dismayed to see when I returned

to this newsroom, we were still

fighting the same issue.

Well, with Development

Christchurch’s mandate, including

New Brighton, it seems the suburb

may finally be getting traction

on this issue, plus the promised

promenade and the hot salt water

pools. Reporter Fraser Walker-

Pearce has the latest updates on the

projects on page 6 and 7.

Tree roots are causing trouble

to footpaths at Westhaven and

residents are lobbying hard to get

a city council rule changed to prevent

future damage. See page 3.

Hei kona, Shelley Robinson

Development Christchurch Ltd is looking to revitalise New

Brighton in four major projects.

Call for tree bylaw change

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

FRUSTRATED Westhaven

residents say a 23-year-old city

council tree bylaw needs to be

urgently changed to prevent

more people being left with

cracked and broken driveways.

Residents Russell Hamilton

and Graham Crow both spoke

at last week’s Burwood-Pegasus

Community Board meeting.

They said plane trees that were

planted around the turn of the

century, have broken through

pavement and driveways, lifted

their grass berms, and even begun

to encroach on a brick fence.

But Mr Hamilton and Mr

Crow cannot cut them down

because the trees belong to

the city council, as they are on

the grass berms outside their

houses.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said trees

on berms are managed by the

city council through a regular

inspection and maintenance

programme.

“Residents are not permitted

to cut down trees on council

berms. Residents are encouraged

to contact the city council

if they have any questions or

concerns about a tree outside

their house,” he said.

The residents lobbied the

community board to change

a troublesome tree bylaw so

others do not end up with the

same fate.

The city council passed a

policy in December 1993 about

tree planting in streets, which

is still active today. It states that

trees should be “appropriate in

size, density and position” for

the street.

City councillor Glenn Livingstone

said the policy was

outdated and needed to be

revisited.

“It was written in 1993, so it

is definitely outdated. The problem

is that there’s a disconnect

between that policy and the

process,” he said.

Mr Hamilton said the two

plane trees outside his property

were there two years before his

family moved in, around 1998,

and have grown to a height of

about 6m, with a base width of

40cm.

The grass berm outside Mr

Hamilton’s house is only 1m

wide, he said, so the trees are

“far too big” for the space.

Mr Crow said the land

developers at the time only

considered the aesthetic look of

the trees rather than the impact

they would have later on.

“It appears when they chose

the trees 20 years ago they

didn’t consider how large some

of the trees would get . . . they’re

still growing,” he said.

Cr Livingstone said the policy

TALL

One of the

troublesome

plane trees.

Its roots are

breaking the

footpath and a

driveway.

CROW

is “grounded in common sense”

but needs to be looked at to prevent

future subdivisions from

having the same problem.

“It has implications for

current and future subdivisions.

The growth areas for

Christchurch are definitely the

north-east like Prestons, and

the south-west of the city too,

like Halswell. So it’s important

that we get it right so we’re

not digging up relatively new

streets,” he said.

Anti-fluoridation argument

doesn’t ‘hold much water’

Nick King

responds to

last week’s

opinion piece

by John

Verd about

the dangers

of water

fluoridation

in Christchurch

With respect John, I think

your passion for the well-being

of others is admirable but, in this

case, misguided.

To suffer a “toxic dose” of

fluoride, at the current safe and

recommended level you’d have to

guzzle 25 gallons of water. You’d

die from hyperhydration first.

Sola dosis facit venenum – the

dose makes the poison.

You quote Hirzy and Connett

as if that adds weight to the antifluoride

argument.

They are not respected in their

field, nor do they speak for the

(United States) Environmental

Protection Agency. And they’re

at odds with their peers and

mountains of research.

I suspect these “studies” are the

well-known “Chinese studies”,

popular among conspiracy theorists

and widely discredited. Fifty

poor studies versus thousands

of more robust studies does not

make a solid case.

The Chinese studies fail to

acknowledge the higher than recommended

levels of fluoride and

other chemicals (also other factors

that may contribute to lower

IQ), including arsenic and iodine

– iodine being a good example

of “beneficial in small doses,

dangerous in higher doses”.

The dose makes the poison.

Even if it is a by-product of an

industrial process, so what? Lots

of things are. We call it recycling.

It’s safe at the levels required to

be beneficial to teeth.

Sure, it might be classed as

a hazardous product which, of

course, it will be if you’re counting

it by the truck load.

Hydrochloric acid is highly

corrosive, but is also produced

naturally by your own body.

There’s arsenic in rice.

The dose makes the poison.

I’m all for questioning and

challenging the status-quo –

things go stale if we don’t.

But scaring people with

sciencey-sounding rhetoric isn’t

very helpful, even if your intentions

are good.

I too have my own reservations

about this situation because of

Christchurch’s reputation for

amazing water, and I have an

emotional attachment to that.

But the points you covered just

don’t hold much water (pun

intended) and are potentially

unnecessarily scary for people.

Readers respond to last

week’s opinion piece by

John Verd about fluoridated

water

Pam Webber, Middleton

I agree with you. (It’s)

abhorrent that they intend

ruining our beautiful

Christchurch water. Keep up the

good work.

Ian Orchard, Papanui

I won’t be losing sleep

over the possibility of

fluoridated water until I get

some more details which

John Verd omitted from

his soapbox. The somewhat

breathless revelation that

hydrofluorosilicic acid (more

properly Hexafluorosilicic acid)

is a by-product of the fertiliser

industry isn’t particularly

relevant. Like sausages, lots

of ingredients in food come

from pathways that we prefer

not to know about, without

being in any way hazardous.

On the other hand, plenty of

ingredients can be dangerous

in the wrong concentrations.

Sodium chloride and

dihydrogen oxide are two classic

examples. Sodium bicarbonate,

frequently recommended for

tough cleaning jobs, is also an

essential ingredient in cakes.

John makes no mention of the

concentration of fluoride ions in

treated water. The World Health

Organisation recommends

1mg/l or one part per million,

hardly a toxic dose for a mineral

that doesn’t accumulate in the

body. He also omits to mention

the ‘elevated’ levels of fluorine

required to cause reduced

IQ, or whether association is

actual causation, or if any of

the 50 studies had survived

peer review? It’s much easier to

scaremonger if you leave out

any details that might counter

your beliefs.

Fee, Fendalton

I am very annoyed that

people do not have a choice

with fluoridation. It’s mass

poisoning. I certainly do not

want to drink a neurotoxin

everyday. What about babies

and pregnant mothers? I would

have to buy a special water filter

that can get rid of fluoride.

Children who have rotten teeth

are most likely not drinking

water and consuming too much

sugar. Better to educate than

fluoridate.

Daniel Brice, Woolston

I strongly support John

Verd’s article on water

fluoridation. It’s a poison and,

like all things we ingest, it

should be done of our own

hand. I will be doing as much

as possible to stop our precious

water from being tainted with

this chemical and having the

choice taken from me of water I

put into my body.

North Beach surf club seeks

help to celebrate centenary

• By Ian Stuart

NORTH BEACH surf lifeguards

have put their hands up for help.

The North Beach Surf

Lifesaving Club celebrates

100 years of service to the

community later this year and is

looking for former members and

memorabilia for its centennial

celebrations during Labour

weekend.

Chairman Roger Smith said

the club had contacted former

club members but there

were many who could not be

found.

“We are extraordinarily proud

of our record of never having

had a drowning in the patrolled

area of our beach since we began

patrols in 1916. But we want to

share that history with as many

club members as we can,” he said.

“The North Beach community

has been incredibly supportive

of the club over the years and

we are asking locals to help us

track down former members. So

if anyone in the community may

know of former club members,

we would ask them to make

contact.”

Mr Smith said the club was

also looking for any memorabilia

associated with surf lifesaving

and the North Beach club.

“In recent years, surf lifesaving

has changed dramatically, and

some techniques and gear many

of us used as youngsters are no

longer in use. We are appealing

to anyone who might have a flag,

a march past uniform, early photographs

of the beach, or even an

old rescue line and reel, to make

contact.”

The club was officially formed

in 1916 after members of the

New Brighton club had earlier

set up a patrol base at North

Beach. Since then, the club

has patrolled the beach every

weekend and public holiday during

the summer. It has carried

out thousands of rescues and

preventive actions.

The centennial is expected

to attract former North Beach

surf lifesavers from around the

PEGASUS POST

The city council-owned Development Christchurch Ltd is spearheading

the rejuvenation of New Brighton focusing on four areas. It comes after

the suburb has struggled for years to get attention from authorities,

falling into disrepair. Reporter Fraser Walker-Pearce has the latest update

on the projects.

Hot salt water pools

The location of where the hot

salt water pools will be is being

narrowed down, with locations

between the Pier and New

Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club.

But the success of the project

still hangs on where the money

will come from, with funding

still up in the air.

A business

case proposal

on the hot salt

water pools

is still being

developed, but

will be before

the city council

by the end of the

month.

Development Christchurch Ltd

chief executive Rob Hall (left)

said it was looking at locations

between the pier and the New

Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club as

potential sites for the pools.

“We are generally looking

in just that small area . . . it is

council owned-land and will still

need to go through the process

Brighton’s hot salt

water pools could

Clair’s pools in

Dunedin.

of consent,” he said.

He said DCL had not yet found

funding for the project.

“As we stand we still need to

secure funding otherwise there

will be no project. You only

have a project when funding is

secured.’’

Last year, the city council committed

$5 million to the project

but it will need more than that to

go ahead.

Mr Hall said it was also looking

at how it would ensure the

hot salt water pool would not

“compete” with the Eastern Recreation

and Sports Centre going

in only 3km away.

The hot salt water pools project

has been one of controversy ever

since it was raised by a community

advisory group in 2013.

Over the past three years,

funding was denied, then later

granted by the city council, and

now New Brighton’s legacy

project has been handed over to

DCL to complete.

After being in charge of the

project for just four months,

DCL will present an “indicative

business case” to the city council

at the end of this month.

New Brighton Business Landowners

Association manager

Paul Zaanen said the association

meets with DCL regularly and

there is “a huge amount of data”

exchanged between the two, ensuring

DCL won’t repeat or skip

any steps in the process.

North Beach promenade

By the end of the month,

the city council will know

whether a $2.4 million plan to

put a promenade in North New

Brighton will come to fruition.

But residents will have to wait

longer with the meeting likely to

be behind closed doors.

Mr Hall said after the city

council instructed DCL to look at

the feasibility of having a promenade

in the wider New Brighton

area, it talked with community

groups to find their concerns.

The report will be presented to

the city council in conjunction

with the New Brighton hot salt

water pools project at an informal

meeting at the end of the month.

“City council informal meetings

are typically public excluded,

so we can talk to city councillors

and other parties while we’re still

in the planning stages,” Mr Hall

said.

The 900m promenade along the

top of sand dunes in North Beach

was proposed by local community

group, the Community

Connection Nga Ngaru Trust last

year.

It will be a 9m-wide track,

running between Waimairi and

North Beach Surf Lifesaving

Clubs.

DCL consulted with representatives

from the North Beach

Surf Lifesaving Club, along with

city council staff, Environment

Canterbury staff, and the Community

Connection Nga Ngaru

Trust on the project.

Mr Zaanen said it would be

tough for them to keep progressing

while also keeping the community

in the loop.

“I think it’s going to be hard

for DCL. The community wants

to hear a lot of things and keep

up to date so we need to figure

out a way to keep them informed

throughout,” he said.

Commercial core

Along with a $20 million

apartment complex being built

in the heart of New Brighton,

DCL and the NBBLA say they are

attempting to remove potential

road blocks for

investors coming

to the area.

Mr Zaanen

said potential

road blocks for

investors included

insurance,

land or building

issues.

“When (DCL) say road blocks,

they’re looking to take away anything

that could prevent someone

from investing in the area. There

might be insurance issues, there’s

still a few buildings in New Brighton

that are standing, but are closed

or vacant, and other complexities

like that,” he said.

Mr Hall said it was too early to

know for sure what could be seen

in the core of New Brighton.

“It’s probably too early to say

what we could see there, we all

agree that New Brighton needs

a point of difference from other

parts of the city, something that

benefits the community and produces

interest to New Brighton,”

he said.

Mr Zaanen (left) said while

there had been good intentions

and planning for the commercial

core previously, it lacked

“managerial experience” to make

it happen.

“There’s certainly an intention

(from DCL) to amp it up now. . .

there’s a whole group of professionals

within that setup,” he said.

Mr Zaanen said he felt for DCL

who had been introduced to “a

wall of information” when they

took on the rejuvenation of New

Brighton.

“I mean chief executive Rob

Hall only started three months

ago and there’s just been so much

stuff done since then in terms

of plans, proposals, community

consultations and projects,” he

said.

‘Quick wins’

After years of battling to

get New Brighton streets and

pedestrian mall regularly

maintained, it appears work is

finally happening.

Mr Hall said one of its “quick

win” projects, was a “deep clean”

of the pavements, streets, gutters,

and foreshore.

DCL is also in the process of

reviewing the contracts for New

Brighton’ street maintenance

and cleaning, which has been an

ongoing problem for residents

for a number of years.

Mr Zaanen said the evidence

of the “deep clean” project was

apparent.

“Even today there’s a whole

bunch of cleaning up going on

outside, cleaning and pruning. It

might be step one of, you know,

a 100-stage process, but we’re

starting.

“The quick wins are literally

happening as we speak. There

are cleaning teams down on the

foreshore tidying, pruning and

cleaning. They’re great quick

wins. They’re jobs that need to

be done and the community has

been asking for them for a long

time,” he said.

DCL also spent $60 on Pokemon

Go lures to attract people

to the New Brighton markets.

Mr Hall said DCL would look

Brighton received a much

needed “deep clean” last

week as one of DCL’s quick

win projects.

to the city council to see if the

location of bus stops around the

suburb could be improved in the

coming weeks and months.

SCIRT programme on the home straight

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls is

almost complete and will finish in December.

Most of our repairs involve fixing the city’s underground pipe networks with only small

amount of our work focused on roads.

Our roading work largely involves fixing where we have dug down to repair and replace

the earthquake damaged pipes beneath. The result may look a little patchy but we repair

roads to a reliable and serviceable standard.

The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the

city's earthquake-damaged roads after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood

• We’re almost finished connecting homes in Aranui to the new resilient vacuum system. This will be

completed this month. Roading work will continue until the end of the year.

• We’re more than halfway through the extensive repairs to the wastewater, storm water, fresh water

and roading networks in Parklands.

• The three-year programme of repairs to the wastewater, storm water, fresh water and roads in

Burwood is due to finish in the next few months.

• New Brighton will still see major works to the wastewater network and crews repairing small

sections of road until December.

Jo Hayes National List MP based in Christchurch East

Eye on the environment

You know that the Government is making bold and

ambitious environmental policy when outlets such as

National Geographic pick up the story.

Predator Free New Zealand by 2050, announced just a

few weeks ago, seeks to eradicate introduced predators

such as rats, stoats and possums that kill about 25 million

native birds across New Zealand each year.

Zoologists from around the world applauded the project,

which has never been achieved on the scale that the

Government is proposing. But, National Geographic

concluded of New Zealanders, “If anyone can do it,

it’s definitely the Kiwis,” paying tribute to our country’s

innovation in environmental research.

Parliament hosts Christchurch East

The last three months has seen Parliament host

Christchurch East businesses and artists as part of Jo

Hayes’ efforts to better connect local constituents with

decision makers and political process.

The Brighton Gallery exhibited New Brighton

Regeneration at Parliament’s Bowen House in June, with

a mixture of mediums including watercolour, acrylic and

oil paintings, jewellery and sculptural pieces from 28

different artists.

The same month, Christchurch East electorate chair Peter

Maguire, Ray White New Brighton owners Holly Jones

and Maxine Jones, Paper Plus New Brighton owner Blair

Hughes and Celebration Lions Sports Trust director Corey

Watkinson joined Jo for a day in Parliament. They met

Prime Minister John Key, witnessed the house in session,

visited the set of Back Benchers and had a chance to talk

with various cabinet ministers.

I’m Jo Hayes, National’s list MP based in Christchurch East.

I love being a part of this wonderful, tight-knit Christchurch East

community. There’s so much going on that I just want to share a few

highlights with you of what our community and Government are

working on achieving together.

Congratulations to...

Jo Hayes would like to specially recognise the following

locals for their outstanding achievements:

Norman Dewes

Norman, who established Te Runanga O Nga Maata Waka,

was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in

the 2016 Queens’ Birthday honours list.

Amy Palmer

Avonside Girls’ High student Amy represented Jo Hayes

as youth parliamentarian at a special two-day event at

Parliament in July. Jo describes Amy as a “definitely one to

watch – she’s going places.”

New Brighton Tiny Huts competition winners

Ting Lin with Shell Chapel (the people’s choice winner) and

Rawhiti Mini Marae (the schools’ winner), designed by

Manaia Wilson-Moses.

New Burwood Hospital opens

Jo Hayes says that the official opening of the new $215 million

Burwood Hospital on 19 August is “Great news for the East.”

The state-of-the-art hospital is the largest rebuild project to date in

Christchurch East, with 32,000 square metres and 230 new beds.

Time is ticking away – again

The time hasn’t been quite right on New Brighton’s landmark clock

tower for more than five years – since the city’s major earthquake

on 21 February 2011.

Local residents Warner and Patsy Mauger lobbied local

representatives and anybody who would listen for five years,

to no avail, until they called Jo Hayes’ office in June. Jo Hayes’

electorate agent Debbie Klyushkin immediately contacted city

councillor David East and

they worked together

with the city council to

get workmen out, who

suggests a feathered

friend may have had a

part to play. Two days

later, it was all fixed.

Jo Hayes says it’s a small

– but significant - victory

for the local community.

Let’s talk

Please come along and see me. I’ll be

“It’s really important to me that politicians are constantly

reminded of the heroic spirit of Christchurch East people –

their triumphs as well as their struggles – as we continue

to rebuild,” Jo Hayes said.

Funds for charity hospital

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

DAY-TO-DAY running costs

at the Canterbury Charity

Hospital Trust have become a

little bit easier after a generous

donation from a community

trust.

The Wainoni Avonside

Community Services Trust

have been fundraising for the

hospital since it was opened

nearly 10 years ago, and have

amassed over $28,000 in that

time.

The trust’s co-ordinator

Betty Chapman presented the

charity hospital with the latest

annual donation at a fun action

luncheon held recently.

“As a group over the last 10

years we have raised just over

$28,000. They have been open

for nine years now. We commenced

fundraising for them

when they had just purchased

the building,” Mrs Chapman

said.

The cheque was presented to

Canterbury Charity Hospital

Trust fundraiser Rosie Graham

and will go towards a new dentistry

room.

She said fundraising used

to be an easy way to gather

revenue before the earthquakes,

but after the two “big ones” donations

had become a lot harder

to find.

“We raised about $7000 one

year from a huge garage sale we

did before the earthquakes

HUGE TOTAL: Wainoni Avonside Community Services

Trust co-ordinator Betty Chapman with Canterbury Charity

Hospital fundraiser Rosie Graham after the trust donated for

its ninth time. ​

ACHIEVERS

. . . we lost a huge amount of

our population after though, we

only made about $305 this time

around,” she said.

Mrs Chapman said the community

trust aims to break the

$30,000 mark when they donate

to the hospital for the 10th time

next year.

She said the hospital is an important

part of trust members’

lives and should be supported to

keep doing their work.

“They just do such great work.

They are doing cataracts, varicose

veins and hernias. These

small operations are just so important

for the folk of Christchurch

– especially the elderly,” she

said.

SCHOOLS

Police dogs pay

school a visit

MAKING FRIENDS: New Brighton Catholic School pupils had a

special visit from the police and companions recently. Senior

Sergeant Gary Donnelly visited room 3 with german shepherds

Blaze and Mint. It is the first time a dog handler has been to

the school. Blaze is a fully trained police dog, while Mint is still

learning from Senior Sergeant Donnelly and Blaze.

Keep

Personalised

service on

those important

occasions

Christchurch Marriage and Funeral celebrant

Annette Farquhar has a range of skills and

experience that enable her to provide a stressfree,

personalised service for her clients on these

most important and life-changing occasions.

As a marriage celebrant, Annette regards it

as a privilege to be chosen for that role, which

starts with meeting the couple to discuss what

they require, through planning the day, advice

on music and timing and also includes the legal

aspects.

“There is a lot of planning for a wedding and

it can become stressful, but I like to keep it all

stress-free and fun – a sense of humour is a

must.”

If there are children in the families, Annette

likes to involve them in the ceremony, often as

ring bearers, which they seem to enjoy.

“This makes a wedding complete with the

whole family involved. I also have lovely words

for parents to say to their children about

blending the family together.”

Many couples Annette has married have

expressed their gratitude in testimonials, which

can be found on her website. For example, Reime

and Blake said:

‘We felt reassured throughout the whole

process. Annette was flexible while we planned

our dream wedding, and her professional yet

relaxed demeanor allowed us to feel comfortable

and confident that everything would be OK….

We recommend Annette as a competitively

priced and highly capable celebrant.’

As a Funeral Celebrant, Annette’s experience

as a volunteer with Victim Support, Ronald

McDonald House, working in hospices and

in palliative care and with the Cancer Society

transporting people for treatment, has brought

her an understanding of grief and of people’s

needs at this difficult time.

“I’m very aware

of how hard it is for

friends and families

to accept. To help

them through it, I put

a ceremony together

which reflects on the

person who has passed

on. It is also a day of

remembering great

times shared and of

happiness. All should

be done with dignity and peace.”

Here is an excerpt from a testimonial on

Annette’s website from Kate Maindonald.

‘Annette Farquhar was the celebrant for my

father’s funeral recently. She was kind, caring

and understanding, and took the time to get to

know us and get to know my father in the short

time that we gave her to prepare for the service.

‘She has the depth of character to deal with

the quirkier side of people’s personalities as well

as the grieving and dealing with the reality of

losing someone you are close to.

I have no hesitation in recommending her

services.’

CONTINUING EDUCATION

eStar working to

attract best IT talent

Nurturing new talent and better

engaging employees will reach new

heights at eStar, as the world class

e-commerce platform and leading

Christchurch tech company strives to

attract the brightest IT professionals.

eStar’s outreach activities look

four to five years ahead, says Chief

Operations Officer Kevin Rowland.

eStar ‘lead team’ staff attend careers

events, visit secondary schools and

recently supported Shadowtech,

with two female employees

mentoring two secondary school girls for a day.

The company is recruiting and will be looking

for new talent at Ara Institute of Canterbury’s

Industry Expo on 25 August, having previously

employed Ara graduates (when Ara was CPIT).

Finding the right skills mix for retail IT is

challenging, Rowland says. With around 70

staff, eStar designs and develops the software

that powers the websites and the online retail

systems of retailers including Briscoes and

Country Road.

Technical skills are of course essential, but ‘soft

skills’ such as communication and interaction

can really set candidates apart. “When we

interview I am always looking for personality. We

do a technical test/developer half day immersion

and everybody freaks over the fact that it’s a tech

test, but if you can do what you say on your CV

then it’s not an issue. You’re in a live ‘dev’ room,

with the people you are going to be working

with. I not only encourage people to talk to each

other but it has to happen because that helps me

see what they’re like.

“Most people who work in IT are introverts.

It’s what makes us good programmers; it’s part

of our personality.

“It’s OK if candidates are a bit meek, but I

have to see some kind of spark. I can throw a

stone into Christchurch and find graduates

who can do IT. They have got to have that bit of

enthusiasm.”

To find out more about working for eStar

and other leading Christchurch companies

visit the Ara Industry Expo and Open Day

on 25 August, 2 – 5pm, City Campus and

Woolston Campus, Christchurch.

SPORTS

WINNER: Cruz Topai-Aveai was awarded the Philip McDonald Memorial

Medal after the UC Championship final at Rugby Park on Saturday ​

Shirley player

a stand-out in

UC Championship

• By Gordon Findlater

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School may have

lost the final, but No 8 Cruz Topai-Aveai

has a consolation by taking away the

most outstanding player for the UC

Championship.

Topai-Aveai was the joint winner of the

Philip McDonald Memorial Medal with

Burnside High School’s Cam Russell.

Former winners of the medal include

the likes of super rugby player Damian

McKenzie and current Canterbury player

Josh McKay.

The winner of the award is decided

by opposition coaches throughout the

season. After each game coaches will

submit who they believe were the top

three performers on the opposition side.

PEGASUS POST

Topai-Aveai has been a part of the first

XV for three years and has played 40

games for Shirley.

The exciting ball carrier has also attracted

plenty of attention from the other

code. He was given a trial at the South

Sydney Rabbitohs rugby league club late

last year.

The award came on what was otherwise

a day of heartbreak for Shirley who were

defeated 21-20 by Christchurch Boys’

High School in the UC Championship

grand final at Rugby Park.

Trailing 15-21 late in the game, Shirley

co-captain Logan Bell scored to make

it 20-21 and give first-five Taine Jacobs-

Lawson the chance to take the lead for

Shirley. His conversion was unsuccessful

and CBHS hung onto take the win.

KORFBALL SUCCESS: Queenspark School korfball team placed fourth at an

inter-school competition, held at Pioneer Stadium last Monday. Korfball is

played like a combination of netball and basketball where players score points

by throwing the ball through a 3.5m high basket. Senior Queenspark year 8

pupil Brooke Overend (number 11) was selected in the team of the tournament.

South New Brighton, Marshland, Opawa, Beckenham, Kirkwood Intermediate,

Christchurch South Intermediate and Heaton Intermediate Schools all

competed.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

PEGASUS POST

Reclaim your

identity

When it comes to dentures, Christchurch people

have access to world-leading techniques and oral

aesthetics right on their doorstep.

At his Montreal street studio Lovebite,

internationally renowned dental

technician Richard Greenlees creates

beautiful bespoke dentures with small

nuances in the fabrication, colour and

shape, and even slight imperfections to

create a uniquely individual smile.

There is no need for dentures to look

false. Richard takes a great deal of

satisfaction in making bespoke dentures

that look 100 per cent real and natural,

personally guiding his patients through

the transformation process to craft a

smile that reflects their individuality and

personality, and recreates their natural

pre-denture smile.

Not only do Lovebite teeth look

real, the whole structure and shape of

the patient’s face is transformed with

Richard’s top-of-the-line dentures,

something he calls his signature ‘denture

lift’.

“With appropriate facial support, the

facial tissues are brought back into the

correct position, the lips are reformed,

and beauty is restored,” he says.

it is the interior architecture of a

Lovebite denture that helps to create a

more youthful appearance by recovering

the face and skeletal shape that can be

lost after years of wearing dentures.

As the smile is transformed, so are the

patient’s confidence, and the way they

feel about themselves.

Richard’s vast experience includes

15 years of running his own clinic in

the prestigious harley st, London,

where he treated people from all walks

of life, from barrow boys to the rich

and famous, politicians, actors and

musicians.

his techniques are recognised as

world-leading among his international

peers, and he is regularly asked to

lecture and run courses worldwide.

Miles Cone (DMD, Ms, FACP, CDt),

a prosthodontist from Oregon, UsA,

said in November 2015: “Richard

Greenlees’ craftsmanship is as stunning

as it is unique. There is liberation in

the calculated imperfection, indeed an

asperity that reflects a purely human

element.”

in addition to dentures, Richard also

carries out crown and bridge, veneer

and implant work, in conjunction

with like-minded dental surgeons who

complement his creative and aesthetic

work.

“teeth are as different as fingerprints

and vary greatly depending on a person’s

age, sex and race. Dentures from

Lovebite reflect this, and are as unique

and individual as the people they are

made for,” says Richard.

There is nothing more satisfying for

Richard than to see his patients leave

the Lovebite studio with their selfconfidence

and identity restored, as well

as their smile.

Confidence and beauty is restored with a new

denture by Lovebite.

As the smile is transformed, so are the

patient’s confidence, and the way they

feel about themselves.

Proven

formula

combats

colds & flu

Research has shown certain herbs and natural

ingredients can dramatically reduce the chances

of succumbing to colds and flu.

One example of a proven formula is Go

Healthy ‘Go Vir-Defence’. Due to the high

potency extracts it contains, one or two capsules

daily are usually sufficient to keep the immune

system at optimum efficiency; however, at the

onset of headaches, sore throat, body aches

etc. the dose should be increased to one or two

capsules up to three times daily.

Go Vir-Defence contains: Olive Leaf Extract

- a popular ingredient used in the treatment of

immune attacks for its strong anti-microbial

properties.

Garlic Extract - effective in combatting

bacteria, viruses and fungi and supporting the

immune system. Andrographis Extract - has

powerful immune-enhancing properties.

Echinacea Extract - a natural antibiotic and

infection fighter.

Pau D’ Arco Extract - helps enhance the

immune system.

Citrus Bioflavonoids - work with Vitamin

C and support the immune system as well

as strengthening capillaries and reducing

inflammation.

Vitamin C - a powerful antioxidant that helps

counteract bacteria and viral infections.

Elderberry Extract - provides immune support.

Zinc - an essential mineral for the immune

system and general health.

Essential

nutrients for

health & vitality

After noticing patients were

experiencing gut, bowel and

digestive issues that often led to

more serious chronic health

conditions, two Australian

Naturopaths conducted

extensive research. This

revealed that although

the patients were generally

eating good food, they were not

obtaining all the nutrients required

for good health, with one of the

main problems being the digestive

system.

Also, with the soils crops are

grown in being depleted of many

trace elements and other essential

nutrients, the crops are also

depleted.

If we do not obtain all the

required nutrients, our body will

compensate to some degree, but

a lack of too many nutrients will

eventually lead to health issues.

Knowing this, the naturopaths

developed Vital Greens, a nutrientdense

powdered formula that

provides superior absorption and

comprehensive nutrition.

Vital Greens contains a balanced

blend of nutritionally rich

Father’s Day -

Keep Dad on

his toes

Every three hours a New Zealand man dies from a

preventable disease. Yet most “blokes” wait until

something goes wrong before seeking help!

Men are not as diligent at taking

care of themselves as women,

according to health practitioners

around the world.

So men, what about some

preventative maintenance for

your body, as you would give your

car? And women, let’s try harder

to encourage our men to take care

of themselves. Small lifestyle

changes can prevent or delay the

onset of many health problems.

When diabetes, arthritis or

stiff, aching joints are a problem,

and more time is spent sitting,

it’s important to have an easy and

enjoyable way to remain active.

Participating in sports or not,

watching TV, reading the paper,

or talking on the phone, an

Aircycle circulation booster can

keep you moving while you sit..

Davis Cup event returns to Christchurch

The New Zealand Davis

Cup team are heading back to

Christchurch to take on Pakistan in

the Asia-Oceania Group 1 second

round playoff. The Tie is being

held from Friday 16 September to

Sunday 18 September, indoors at

Z Energy Wilding Park.

Kiwi Olympians Michael Venus

and Marcus Daniell ranked 41

and 58 respective in the world

for doubles have been named

alongside Finn Tearney ranked

381, Rubin Statham at 444 in

singles. If Statham takes the court

he will beat Onny Parun’s New

Zealand Davis Cup record of the

most ties played for his country of

25 ties.

It is likely Pakistan will select

their doubles expert Aisam

Qureshi who is 36-years-old and

ranked 48th in doubles. Aqeel

Khan is another likely veteran

who should be selected.

New Zealand lead Pakistan

3-1 in head-to-head clashes. The

last time the two sides clashed it

was a 4-1 win for New Zealand

in Myanmar in 2013 which was

abandoned.

Christchurch has been the home

of Davis Cup ties since 2014, with

a win against Chinese Taipei in

2014 and a close 3-2 loss to India

in the 2015 semi-finals. Tennis

Canterbury is extremely excited

to host yet another Davis Cup tie

for the third consecutive year. This

is a return to the glory days that

has seen Tennis Canterbury host

numerous Davis Cup ties against

some of the superpower of world

tennis.

Z Energy Wilding Park is one

of the oldest sport venues still in

operation in all of Canterbury.

It has played host to Davis

Cup matches as far back as the

1910’s and 20’s. Much like many

of Christchurch’s other most

important sporting facilities

Wilding Park was severely

impacted by the Christchurch

Earthquake impacted in both

September 2009 and February

2010.

The rebuilding process has

been a long one. Mixed emotions

were felt at the demolition of the

iconic Memorial Stands, host to

numerous Davis Cup Tie and other

International Tennis Federation

events. However it was also the first

bit of tangible progress in relation

to the redevelopment of Wilding

Park and proved to generate

some real excitement amongst the

tennis community. Strengthening

work on the facility’s structural

steel and refurbishment of the

administration and function

space erased any signs of the

earthquake damage and provided

the wider community with some

great function space.

The final stage of development

will see the reinstatement of

six additional outdoor courts,

the development of a grassy

embankment for spectator viewing

and social spaces, including a

barbeque area. The facility will

continue to be available to the

local communities, including

school, charitable organisations

and, in some cases, other sports

outside of normal hours. The

final stage of development work

is scheduled to be gin in the

coming month with a completion

date of mid November, just in

time for the Summer of Tennis.

This development will allow

Canterbury to again host National

Age Group events, International

Events and, of course, future

Summer Davis Cup ties.

This year’s Davis Cup tie is a

three day event. Two singles will

be played on Friday, doubles on

Saturday and the two reverse

singles on Sunday. Matches are

the best of five sets. Tickets and

Corporate Boxes are available.

Please go to www.tennis.kiwi for

further information and pricing.

Cantabrian Tennis Player USA Bound

On the 1st June 2016, Jack Tiller

signed a national letter of intent

with Southeastern Oklahoma State

University, located in Durant,

Oklahoma, USA.

From the age of 15 Jack’s overall

goal in tennis was to gain a

scholarship to train, play and study

in the United States of America.

Through taking part in Canterbury

Performance squads since the age of

12, he constantly saw older players

being granted scholarships and

given opportunities to experience

American lifestyle through

tennis while gaining invaluable

experiences. Seeing others excel

in the college tennis system

encouraged him to start

preparation for enrolment in

Fall 2016.

In October of 2015, Jack

got in contact with John

Gardner, the head coach in

the Nelson/Marlborough region

and his company, Inspire Sports.

John’s expertise guided Jack

through a comprehensive checklist

of what he needed to achieve to

reach his ultimate goal of signing

with a college that fitted in well with

what he wanted. John’s personalised

programme was a great help. It

began with initial meetings with

Jack and his father so John could

understand what they were looking

for in a college. John then set out a

‘Plan of attack” on how they would

go about getting a contract. They

began working together through

each stage, which included NCAA

registration, skills video, personal

website, SAT and GPA results and

working through what colleges Jack

wanted to contact. Jack believes that

it would not have been possible for

him to work through everything

that needed to be done without

John’s outstanding expertise and

knowledge. Jack found John’s

attention to detail and reliability to

be outstanding.

Jack began talks with the coach

from Southeastern Oklahoma State

University in March of this year. The

coach expressed his interest in Jack

joining the college team and, after

talking through email, the college

made an offer for Jack to attend

their college and become part of the

Savage Storm athletic family. After

the initial paper work, Jack signed a

national letter of intent, committing

Jack to attending the university.

Through his years of training,

Jack’s ultimate goal was to get to

university. Jack is a self-professed

‘late bloomer’ in tennis. During his

junior years, he describes himself as

a mediocre player who was always

outside the top player category.

Through growth, maturity and the

help of the Canterbury training

programme, he was able to play

smarter tennis and achieve positive

results. Coaching by Alistair Hunt

and Matt Meredith has afforded

Jack the opportunity to learn from

the best and use their expertise on

court, creating a huge advantage.

Jack has represented Canterbury

in multiple ties including

Canterbury vs Marlborough,

City vs Country, Canterbury

team’s event and also the

Canterbury men’s team. In 2015

he won the under 18 Canterbury

Championships, a great result to put

on his college application form.

Jack has always loved the fact that

tennis is mostly an individual sport,

results are based on a player’s own

ability and there are no excuses. Jack

has always enjoyed competing in

Canterbury Interclub representing

his club of Elmwood. He is grateful

to Ashley Forbes for giving him

the opportunity to play top level

tennis in the premiere grade against

great players like James Meredith,

Remi Fennon and other top rated

players in the region. Jack feels that

it through playing top level players

that he has learned the most, even if

it involved losing.

During tennis season, Jack trains

or plays every day of the week. Each

week also includes four sessions of

hitting, two fitness sessions and two

days of interclub matches on the

weekends. During the off season

Jack keeps training with hitting

three days a week and a fitness

session and match play on the

weekends.

Jack chooses to keep his future

goals simple. His immediate goal

is to do the best he can to prepare

for college and to give himself the

best chance of success. For Jack,

this means being fit and healthy,

requiring him to train as well as he

can every time he gets on the court.

Over the long term, Jack plans to

take every opportunity he can at

Southeastern Oklahoma State in

order to reach his full potential

whilst there, not just in tennis, but

also in academic life.

For younger players aspiring to

play college tennis, Jack’s advice is

to never give up. Jack recalls many

moments in his time of playing

tennis when he thought he wasn’t

good enough, or wasn’t able to

compete to his full potential. Not

being the best player in the region

or the nation is not a problem;

it’s a challenge. By embracing

that challenge, working hard and

training, it is possible to shorten the

gap between the different levels in

order to compete in top level tennis.

Have a goal and go for it!

Jack invites anyone interested in

college tennis to feel free to ask any

questions. He will be happy to try

and answer!

Come out and


Have Fun and Get Fit

with Cardio Tennis

Looking for a way to get fit, have fun and

meet new people? Cardio Tennis is a fitness

programme offered at tennis clubs across

Canterbury. Combining the best features of

tennis with cardiovascular exercise, Cardio

Tennis delivers a fun, full-body, calorieburning

aerobic workout ¬– even if you have

never played tennis before.

Cardio Tennis uses low-compression tennis

balls which travel at a slower speed, making

it easier for a beginner to hit the ball. More

advanced players will be challenged by a

range of activities that cater to all skill levels.

Cardio Tennis works by raising participants’

heart rates into their aerobic training zone. At

the beginning of each session, participants

are equipped with heart rate monitors before

exercising to music and using a variety of

modified equipment to elevate the heart

rate. Like interval training, periods of high

intensity are followed by short periods of rest.

Cardio Tennis combines fun with

spectacular success. Women can burn up to

500 calories in a 60 minute workout. Men

can burn up to 800 calories. Cardio Tennis

coaches are Tennis NZ registered and trained

to ensure that participants get a great workout

while improving their tennis skills.

Even if you’re not good at tennis, Cardio

Tennis can provide a fun, social way to keep

fit. Contact Tennis Canterbury to find a

Cardio Tennis programme near you.

Tennis Hot Shots –

Grassroots fun for all!

Kids working together, no queues and modified

courts, balls and equipment make Tennis Hot

Shots plenty of fun for all and a great way for your

kids to be introduced to the sport of

tennis in a fun, social environment.

The four key elements of any

New Zealand Post Tennis Hot Shots

session are:

1. FUN Players are actively

engaged, excited and motivated to

participate.

2. TACTICAL/PLAY Players

think and make decisions about

meaningful tennis situations.

3. SKILLS Players have plenty

of opportunities to improve their

tennis skills.

4. SOCIAL Players build social

skills such as working cooperatively

with a partner, building friendships,

encouraging teammates and

showing sportsmanship during game play.

October marks the beginning of Tennis

Canterbury’s exciting tournament calendar

tournaments.

As in previous years, the programme for

junior tournaments will take place during

each of the school holidays, starting with the

Z Energy Junior Spring Open (2-7 October).

Entries for the Spring Open are now being

accepted online until the closing date of 23

Sept 2016. Fact Sheets are available on the

website for each tournament, and provide

information for planning and for play as well

as contact information for any questions. The

tournament welcomes players from the 8 and

under age group up to 18 years.

All junior tournaments are open to any

junior, regardless of age or ability. Players

can be from any area, in New Zealand and

internationally, except for the ASB Primary/

Intermediate Tournament on Show Weekend,

which is replicated throughout the country

for each area’s participation.

qualified coaches. Our qualified coaches teach

kids to play in fun, supportive and interactive

sessions. Lessons generally run for between 30 and

60 minutes. NZPTHS coaching

sessions can be one-on-one or in a

group – ask your local venue what

options are available.

Community Play Community

Play is designed to give kids

the chance to have a hit in a

supportive environment where the

emphasis is on fun, not coaching.

The Community Play program

is conducted in clubs and centres

New Zealand-wide by parents,

club volunteers and NZPTHS

coaches.
