Monuments to

get panels in bid

to deter taggers

• By Caitlin Miles

THE NEW Brighton War

Memorial on Marine Pde

will soon be graffiti-proof.

The city council is

planning to install seethrough

polyglass panels

around the outside of the

memorial to protect it,

and the Woolston Borough

Monument, from

being vandalised in the

future.

City council capital delivery

community manager, Darren

Moses, said because of previous

vandalism, the war memorial

will have the panels put around

it to stop it from being tagged.

“As with the Woolston

Borough Monument, the New

Brighton War Memorial is continually

tagged or engraved with

initials,” Mr Moses said.

New Brighton RSA manager

and secretary Garry House

(above) said the RSA was glad the

city council planned to do something

to protect the memorial.

“It’s very important to us and

to community that it is looked

after and we do support the city

council for the work on it,” Mr

House said.

The panels are clear and protect

the monument. They have a

film over top of them which can

be replaced if they are

defaced. The full panels

can be removed during

ceremonies.

It is expected to cost

$25,000 for the total

cost to design, and to

fabricate and install

polyglass around the

memorial with the installation

of the panels expected

to take place next month.

The Woolston Borough Monument,

on the corner of Richardson

Tce and Ferry Rd will get

similar panels to preserve it at a

cost of $23,000.

There are no further plans to

install similar panels on any other

monuments around the city.

think more monuments

should be encased in

protective glass? Email

DEFACED: Vandalism like this on the Woolston Borough Monument (left) and the New Brighton War Memorial shouldn’t happen

once protective panels are installed around the sides.

News.....................................3-13

AT LAST, a solution to tagging of

the New Brighton War Memorial

on Marine Pde.

We report today (page 1) on a

city council move to protect something

that should be off-limits to

taggers in the first place.

The panels can be peeled off

when they are vandalised and then

simply replaced.

I’m not sure why the city council

hasn’t done this sooner, but credit

where credit is due and good on

them for the move.

They will be in place in about a

month, and a historic monument

in Woolston will also be covered in

the panels.

But at the end of the day it is a

sad indictment on society – particularly

teenagers who are usually

the taggers – when they target

such things as war memorials.

Send the culprits to Burnham

for several weeks to sort them out,

Repairs to pier under way

WORK HAS started on the

12-month plan to repair the

earthquake damaged pier.

The repairs will focus on

damage sustained by the support

columns at seabed-level,

and there will be additional

repairs to cosmetic earthquake

damage on the deck and railings.

“Most of the work will be

going on below

sea-level,” said

city council

general manager

city services David

Adamson

(left).

“Fulton

Hogan will be working inside

caissons, which are segmented

watertight tubes. Over the first

few weeks, the caissons will be

driven firmly into the sea-bed,

built up around each of the

damaged pier columns with a

watertight seal, and then all the

seawater will be pumped out.

“It’s a really interesting process

that you don’t see too often

in Christchurch,” Mr Adamson

says. “I’m told it’s a bit unnerving

when you’re standing under

all that water, but the caissons

create a safe, dry space in which

to work.

“It’s also the fastest option.

Some of the damage has left the

pier’s support columns vulnerable

to rust, and the faster we

fix them, the less chance there

is for them to deteriorate in

the marine environment. This

work is essential if the pier is

to have a long lifespan, so this

is great news for everyone who

likes to make the most of one

of Christchurch’s major attractions.”

The pier performed

as expected during the

earthquakes and remains safe

to use. The impact on visitors

to the pier will be minimised

– with the exception of the

occasional closure to allow

contractor vehicles to come and

go, the pier will remain open to

the public throughout.

Events based around New

Brighton Pier, including the

Treetech Guy Fawkes Fireworks

Spectacular, the Coast to Coast

and the New Zealand Surf Life

Saving Championships, will all

go ahead as planned through

2017.

The repair project has a

budget of $9.7 million, and is

expected to be completed by

February 2018.

The adjacent New Brighton

Library is currently closed for

repairs, and is set to reopen on

February 13.

KIDNEY SURGERY

A 6 year old Golden Lab called, you

guessed it, LOLA, came to see us for a

referral ultrasound at the end of last year

because she had been urinating “clots”

of blood. She was clinically bright and

alert at the visit but did have a history of

possibly having access to rat bait 7 days

earlier.

The abdominal ultrasound was

performed by Catherine and she found

a possible bleed into the left kidney but

no sign of tumours anywhere else. A

wide range of blood and urine testing

was performed, including clotting times

in case of rat bait access, and all showed

up very normal, apart from evidence that

she had experienced a recent bleed. So

initially she was discharged on Vitamin

K in case of rat bait and antibiotics. She

seemed bouncy and was of course still

ravenous but a follow up ultrasound was

scheduled for the following week to check

to see if the haemorrhage had resolved in

the left kidney.

She returned happily to see Kirsty the

following week looking great. No further

blood clots were seen in her urine. The

ultrasound of the left kidney appeared in

worse shape – the kidney was increased

in size and still full of fluid – blood?

Specialists were consulted and it was

agreed that a CT scan was needed to rule

in or out cancer.

Kirsty accompanied Lola to her CT

scan. The radiologist noted marked

pathological changes in the left kidney

that resembled a rapidly progressing

primary kidney tumour. No sign of cancer

was seen in the lungs or other parts of

the abdomen. It was decided that she

needed a nephrectomy ( removal of the

left kidney) fairly urgently while she still

essentially well. Her right kidney was

functioning normally ( as seen on CT scan

and via the bloods)and without surgery

her prognosis was probably less than 1

month.

So Kirsty and myself put our hands

up to operate on Lola. A nephrectomy

surgery is not to be taken lightly so we

did our research before attempting the

left kidney removal ( text book reading,

U tube videos, consulting with other

surgeons). We had a blood donor dog,

a German shepherd called Pepper, on

standby in case she lost a lot of blood

or we couldn’t control surgical bleeding.

My Lola frequently gave blood but since

she’s had a renal tumour removed and

undergone chemotherapy, she can no

longer have blood drawn. It is important

for a clinic to have access to a healthy,

young, disease free canine patient in

the case a blood transfusion is needed.

Collecting blood is largely straight forward

although the donor dog often needs to

be sedated as the collection needle is

large bore and goes into the jugular vein.

The patient must lay very still while we

are collecting the blood. Pepper did an

amazing job and her blood was sent to

the After hours clinic with Lola in case she

required it.

The surgery was a complete success,

and even though there were a few tense

moments during the 2 hour operation,

Kirsty and I were thrilled with the final

outcome. Her left kidney and ureter were

carefully removed and the bleeding

controlled. Georgie did a superb job of

anaesthetic monitoring – not straight

forward at all. Lola woke up brilliantly and

has really never looked back. Her owners

were very thrilled and grateful for the

work our entire team carried out from

start to finish. And the best news being,

the mass in the kidney wasn’t “cancer”, the

kidney was diseased, non functioning and

had a large blood clot present.

Lola will need ongoing monitoring to

make sure the surviving kidney maintains

good health. This will be done by regular

blood and urine testing with her primary

vet in Ashburton. Just like with my Lola,

we are out of the woods but still need to

keep our eyes open for any small changes.

My Lola did have kidney cancer confirmed

so she gets 6 monthly CT scans at St

Georges and 3 monthly blood and urine

testing. Periodically she is fed Prescription

kidney diets but for now her surviving

kidney is holding up well. Long may it last

– my Lola is now swimming and relaxing

up in the Bay of Islands with the family.

Take home message – consult your

vet immediately if your dog passes

clots of blood in the urine. This isn’t

normal.

Trump changing politics

Christchurch

local body

politician Sam

MacDonald

talks about

what Donald

Trump is doing to

politics

Has Donald Trump

revived politics?

It seems to be the topic

every media outlet across

the globe is reporting – the

Donald Trump presidency.

While we have seen him

already make controversial

moves like remove the

United States from the

Trans-Pacific Partnership

Agreement and adopt

an archaic, protectionist

approach to trade, the

question still stands. Is a

Trump presidency likely

to improve the awareness

of politics and the importance

of voting?

One of the struggles inherent

with local government

elections is the lack

of awareness or engagement

and the resulting low

voter turnout. In the 2016

elections, only 40 per cent

of Christchurch voters cast

a ballot. For an organisation

tasked with spending

millions of dollars

every year on roads, traffic,

waterways, parks and

collecting rubbish, there

isn’t much of everyday life

that isn’t impacted by the

work overseen by elected

representatives.

Now, while I don’t

propose that our elections

are comparable to the US

elections, the challenge

remains: How do we improve

voter participation

and increase the awareness

of what your city council

and community board do

for you?

I’ve taken a different

approach in the Waimairi

Ward. Firstly, by working

with local residents on key

issues, such as challenges

with urban planning and

development, parking

and traffic issues, and the

under utilisation of our

parks and recreational

areas. Secondly, I’ve been

working to raise awareness

of the importance of

democratic participation.

As a young representative,

passionate about getting

youth involved in not only

our community, but the

democratic process, more

can be done. I challenge

you to talk to someone

under the age of 30 and

discuss the importance

and impact of their vote.

While rubbish collection

and traffic issues may not

be the most appealing

conversations, the point

remains – will the ongoing

controversy surrounding

the Trump presidency, in

the very least, raise awareness

around the importance

and impact of your

democratic right to vote?

Urban forest for Linwood likely

• By Caitlin Miles

AN URBAN forest may be

developed in Linwood Lower

Fields as part of flooding

protection plans.

The land will be developed

into a new water storage basin,

it’s planned to store flood water

in heavy rainfall and release it

slowly back into Bells Creek to

reduce the flood risk to houses in

Linwood. The area surrounding

the ponds is proposed to be made

into an urban forest and park

area. The landscaping plan has

gone out for public consultation.

The city council is in discussions

with the Ministry of Education

over purchasing 2.75ha

of the 3.2ha Linwood College

Lower Fields on Ferry Rd from

the Ministry of Education.

The college used to use the site

for sports purposes but since

the 2011 earthquakes it has only

used a portion of the grounds

for its satellite unit, the Kimihia

Parents’ College.

The city council wants to use

the land as part of a series of

works, between Antigua St in

the central city and Hargood

St in Woolston, designed to

improve flood protection and

water quality in the Bells Creek

catchment.

PROTECTION: The plans include native trees surrounding the ponds and a path through the forest. ​

The plan includes planting

2500 native trees and having concrete

footpaths and boardwalks

to go around the two ponds.

City councillor Yani Johanson

said having the community’s

feedback on the project is important.

“We’re looking at having an

urban forest in Linwood . . . it’s

going to start making Linwood

great again,” Cr Johanson said.

The Linwood Lower Fields

project is part of the wider Land

Drainage Recovery Programme

which seeks to restore the flooding

risk in the city to ‘pre-earthquake

levels’. The Bells Creek

catchment has experienced

a greater flood risk since the

earthquakes due to subsidence

of the ground.

The consultation period will

close on February 15.

The plans will go to the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board in March.

Library closed

for two weeks

• By Caitlin Miles

NEW BRIGHTON residents will

have to find somewhere else to

find books because there will be

library service for two weeks.

The temporary New Brighton

Library in New Brighton Mall

closed its doors for good yesterday

but locals won’t have a library

service until the normal library,

on Marine Pde opens on February

13.

The New Brighton Library

sustained moderate damage in

the February 22, 2011, earthquake

and was closed for repairs. While

that was taking place the city

council set up the temporary

replacement. It has been operating

for five-and-a-half months.

City council community libraries

operations manager Kate

Ogden said there will be no service

because the library will need

to be set up again before it can be

opened.

“We need to move everything

that has been in the temporary

facility and in storage back into

the library on Marine Pde,” Ms

Ogden said.

Ms Ogden said if any books

were on hold at New Brighton

library they are now at surrounding

libraries in Linwood, Shirley,

Fuel tax mooted to fix roads

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE IDEA to implement a fuel

tax in a bid to fund the repair

of the region’s earthquake

damaged roads, including those

in the eastern suburbs, has been

floated.

City councillor Aaron Keown

asked Mayor Lianne Dalziel

last week if she would consider

asking the Government if Canterbury

could have a regional

fuel tax.

It comes after Auckland Mayor

Phil Goff asked for a 10c per litre

fuel tax for Auckland to plug the

$4 million funding gap it has for

a list of transport projects over

the next decade.

However, Ms Dalziel said

she would be interested to see

what happened with Auckland’s

request before making any decisions

on asking the Government

to look at Canterbury.

Cr Keown said the tax could

pay for the repairs of Canterbury’s

earthquake damaged

roads, so it did not strain the city

council’s budget.

He said once the roads were

repaired, they could re-look

at whether the tax was still

needed.

“You’d pay a bit extra for your

New Brighton Rd, city councillors say.

fuel to have really smooth roads

that work.”

Former city council infrastructure,

transport and environment

committee chairman Phil

Clearwater said he mooted the

idea twice last year in informal

discussions with councillors.

“I think a regional fuel tax

does have the potential to bring

additional income for our council.”

He did not know what amount

of tax would work at this stage,

Cr Clearwater said.

“I agree with the mayor, I think

we will need to wait and see how

Auckland gets this across the line

first then we would be likely to

pursue it if they do.”

Initially, Mr Key said no to Mr

Goff’s request for a fuel tax last

year in Auckland because it created

anomalies.

Winters Rd closure will effect school

• By Andrew King

A SECTION of Winters Rd

will be permanently shut to

vehicles to make way for the

Christchurch Northern Corridor

bringing positive and negative

effects for a primary school.

The project will be a four-lane

highway running from Chaneys

Cnr to Cranford St. It aims to

ease congestion in the north of

the city and is expected to be

completed by

2020.

From February

7, the road

in Mairehau,

between property

numbers 137 and

143, will be

closed.

Papanui Primary School is on

the corner of Fraser and Cranford

Sts.

Principal Paul Kingston

(above) said there are positive

and negative effects to the closure.

He said there will be more

vehicles using the Fraser and

Cranford Sts intersection outside

the school and it limits access

options for staff, parents and

pupils.

“We’ll have to wait and see

to mitigate these.”

the wider community.

A tunnel will be constructed

to allow pedestrians and cyclists

to pass under the motorway

and is expected to be completed

within six months.

The Northern Corridor project

includes the construction of a

new road between QE II Dr and

Cranford St, and the four-laning

of Cranford St to Innes Rd.

The new motorway will bring

an estimated 20,000 extra vehicles

per day into St Albans once

finished.

The city council is putting together

a team to come up with a

downstream effects management

plan to identify the traffic issues

on surrounding residential

streets.

The team would then come up

with strategies to mitigate those

effects, which would go out for

public consultation.

Traffic congestion would

become “increasingly severe” in

Main North Rd, Cranford St and

Marshland Rd if the new road

was not built, the city council

said.

Offenders dig second chance

AT THE end of its first year,

19 people on community

sentences with the Department

of Corrections have become

the first to graduate from a

new agricultural skills training

programme.

They leave with qualifications

– and the chance to change their

lives. The ongoing project is a

partnership between Lincoln

University, Port Levy’s Koukourarata

Marae and Community

Corrections.

It is intended to deliver practical

horticultural skills with a

focus on tikanga (Maori way of

doing things).

Corrections Canterbury lead

service manager Katey Gibling

said the intention was for offenders

to reconnect with the land

while gaining skills for employment

and a taste for achievement

and further training.

“Many of those we work with

are drifting, their lives have

become chaotic and without

purpose. Through this partnership,

and projects like this, we

help them to reconnect with their

culture and find a way forward,”

she said.

“Lincoln provide the qualification

and having them involved

has helped the offenders see

that this is a real qualification

and they are very capable of

doing something they had never

thought possible for them.”

The 19 graduates were presented

with certificates recognising

proficiency in chainsaw operation,

quad-bike driving, tractor

driving and the use of farming

implements.

For Brent, the first graduate of

the course, the programme has

been truly life changing.

to me getting the confidence to

have a go and get back in charge

of my life,” he said.

Last year, Brent was studying

horticulture, then when things

‘got stressful,’ he started to drink

heavily and found himself on a

community work sentence with a

drink driving conviction.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE: Lincoln University’s biological husbandry unit manager Bill Martin (left),

Brent, and Corrections senior community work supervisors Tom Piahana and Reuben Gent. ​

“When I committed my offences,

I wasn’t thinking ahead. I

was dealing with alcohol and anxiety

issues. I was losing my friends,

failing my studies. I was in a dark

place and ended up on a community

work sentence,” he said.

“This programme was the first

big mental shift for me. I started

to plan forward again.

“I did the chainsaw course

thinking that it could make me

more employable and I thought

the quad bike training could also

lead to something. It gave me the

confidence to try again. I had

gained these skills and thought, ‘I

can do this’.”

Brent said that in addition to

starting to learn again, it was

the mentoring support of the

community work supervisor who

helped him see opportunity.

The project’s community

work supervisor Reuben Gent

said the partnership offered

new opportunities for people on

community work sentences to

access skills and qualifications

for employment. The tikanga

element helped offenders

reconnect with Maori principals

and culture.

“In addition to practical skills

and work aptitudes, the offenders

on the programme are gaining

confidence and the personal

skills and motivation to move on

with their lives,” Mr Gent said.

“Working alongside each other

provides time and opportunity

to talk about what is going on in

people’s lives. Projects like this

work at many levels,” Mr Gent

said.

Koukourarata Marae representative

Manaia Cunningham

said he was very proud of the way

the project was progressing and

the difference it was making in

the lives of the people working

on it.

“As a marae, we are thrilled to

support our community service

whanau and we are here to support

each other,” Mr Cunningham

said.

“This education programme

has a Maori education framework

that ensures everyone’s

whakapapa is respected.”

For some of those in the project,

they will find the confidence

and passion to continue their

studies in a related field, for example,

horticulture or forestry at

Lincoln University.

Bill Martin, manager of the

biological husbandry unit, is the

university’s delivery partner in

the partnership.

“This programme delivers

skills that growers want,” Mr

Martin said.

“The people graduating from

this programme have certificates

of proficiency in useful skills.”

The programme offers a way

to engage in the community and

partner in the Koukourarata

gardens. While the initial programme

was about rebuilding

and shaping lives, the partnership

has taken a new turn with

the BHU engaging in a two-year

research project to develop commercial

seed lines of organic

taewa, or Maori potatoes, and

ensure their availability into the

future.

STUCK IN: People on

community sentences with

Corrections have been

learning new agricultural

skills, such as proficiency with

a chainsaw.

“Through this project, we will

enable Koukourarata to develop

commercial scale production of

organic taewa,” Mr Martin said.

The tikanga element of the

programme also sat well with the

university’s whenua strategy and

recognition of the importance of

engaging with Maori and Pasifika

and the land.

“Between the three partners we

bring commitment, tikanga, the

labour, the science and the will to

make a difference to the future of

this food source which is culturally

significant to New Zealand,

and especially to iwi,” Mr Martin

said.

“We are helping people reconnect

with the earth, traditional

planting and horticultural methods.

It’s not just seeds we are

growing. It’s ideas and futures.”

As for Brent, he felt very

positive about his future. He

had returned to Lincoln to study

landscape architecture and had

completed and passed his first

two papers.

“I stuffed up so much for so

long. I needed this, but I didn’t

know I needed it. It seems

strange to say, but it has been a

really important experience for

me,” he said.

“My sentence gave me purpose.

I came home feeling engaged and

positive again. Since I have been

on sentence, my whole life has

turned around and Corrections

has been a big part of this.”

Council committees for new term

• By Bridget Rutherford

A NEW committee has been

formed to support the city’s

focus on innovation and

sustainability.

Along with it, the city council

created 14 other committees,

sub-committees, working groups

and a taskforce last month.

The innovation and sustainable

development committee will

be chaired by Vicki Buck, with

Tim Scandrett as her deputy.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said the

new city council organisation,

a merger between Canterbury

Development Corporation,

Christchurch & Canterbury

Tourism and some of the council’s

events, would report to this

committee.

She said it would also drive

strategic directions adopted by

the city council, such as the Resilient

Greater Christchurch Plan.

“The committee will also take

on a leadership role in the area

of sustainability and climate

change issues.”

A development forum, chaired

by Jamie Gough, with Sara

Templeton as deputy, would be a

sub-committee.

Raf Manji will chair his second

term of the finance and performance

committee, supported by

Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner.

Ms Dalziel said the committee

was refocused on the city council’s

finances and performance,

rather than its strategies as it had

been previously.

She said the insurance subcommittee,

which was in place

last term, was now under the

finance and performance committee.

This committee will be supported

by a sub-committee – the

strategic capability committee,

which Ms Dalziel and Cr Turner

would chair.

The new social and community

development committee

will be led by Phil Clearwater.

Cr Clearwater chaired the

infrastructure, transport and environment

committee last term.

Pauline Cotter would become

chairwoman of that committee

this term, with Mike Davidson

as deputy.

This term’s regulatory performance

committee will be

chaired by David East, with Cr

Gough as his deputy. Cr East

held that role last term.

The audit and risk

management committee

will remain the same, with

independent chairwoman

Sue Sheldon, and Cr Manji

her deputy. Ms Sheldon is a

chartered accountant, and

current director of Real Journeys

Ltd and Contact Energy.

The others include a housing

Yulia recording new album in mother’s memory

• By Bridget Rutherford

WHEN YULIA Townsend’s

mother passed away last year,

the musician never thought she

would sing again.

She said it broke her into a

million pieces.

But now, the multi-platinum,

best-selling artist is about to record

her new album in front of a

live audience in Ferrymead.

It will be her first major work

in New Zealand for 10 years

because she took a break to have

her two children.

The album will be recorded in

front of a live audience in two

sessions at Ferrymead’s Orange

Studios on February 3 and 4.

A hundred tickets will be

available for the two sessions.

“The exclusivity of this event

is comparable to an experience

of Bluff oysters – available to a

select few, first in, first served,”

she said.

The new album, which follows

Into the West and Montage,

will feature five of Townsend’s

original songs. as well as covers

of Lionel Richie and Leonard

Cohen.

Peter Rattray, who recorded

Yulia’s first self-produced album

while she was at school, will

master this one.

She said it would be different

to her previous music, but

thought her fans would like it.

“They are going to come out

and think years down the track,

I may not remember what she

sang, or what she said, but I will

always remember how she made

me feel.”

Townsend said the concerts

would be in part dedicated to

her mother, Galina, who died of

cancer in July.

The five songs in the new

album were among about 12 she

wrote in November 2015.

She said it took about two

weeks to write all of them,

which were triggered when she

returned to Christchurch and

reunited with family.

Townsend was born in Russia

and emigrated to Christchurch

with her mother in 2002.

At 18-years-old, she landed a

deal with Sony before becoming

the first female vocalist in the

country to have two back-toback

Livingstone joins in Trump protest

• By Bridget Rutherford

BURWOOD-Coastal

Community Board city

councillor Glenn Livingstone

got a glimpse of Donald Trump

being sworn in as the 45th

President of the United States.

He and his wife, Anthea, are

in the US after originally buying

the plane tickets in the hope of

seeing Hillary Clinton being

sworn in as president.

However, on Saturday (US

time), it was President Trump

they saw.

“I got a little glimpse of

Trump,” he said.

Cr Livingstone said the following

day, the pair took part in the

Women’s March on Washington

– a global movement to support

women’s rights and broader

equality.

They carried the New Zealand

flag, he said.

“It was quite an experience.

The march was like no other we

had ever participated in, both

in terms of the sheer number of

people and the strength of feeling

within it.”

Meanwhile, in Christchurch,

hundreds of people marched

from Victoria Square to Cathedral

Square on Saturday as part

of the global march.

“We carried the New Zealand

flag in solidarity with those

marching in Christchurch and

other cities,” Cr Livingstone said.

Not only women took part;

there were people of all ages, he

said.

“Those taking part were from

mainstream America, they were

not ‘serial protesters’ as some

commentators would like to

think.”

The couple left Christchurch

on January 15 and visited Dallas

to see Dealey Plaza, where John

F Kennedy was assassinated in

1963, before heading to New

York and Washington DC.

Cr Livingstone will miss today’s

council meeting as a result

of the trip.

Boxing gym hopes to buy premises off council

• Ashleigh Monk

ARANUI’S A-TOWN Boxing Gym

wants to buy the building it’s based

in off the city

council.

A-Town’s Jamie Roberts said the

club cannot progress until it takes

charge of its own destiny – hence

the bid to buy the Hampshire St

premises.

The gym was badly damaged by

an arsonist two and a half years

ago, wiping out half of the building.

The damage remains unrepaired

even though boxers still train there.

Mr Roberts has helped many atrisk

youths to get off the streets and

into the ring.

He said the city council

should sell the premises, a small

two-roomed building, for a token

price – $1.

“It was decided that they (city

council) weren’t going to repair

it, but that they would give us the

opportunity to buy it and repair it.

Buy it for something like a dollar,

something cheap.

“With the council, I guess they

have massive stuff to fix in the

city and that takes higher priority,

which we understand. With the

latest quake, we sort of got nudged

down the line a bit, which is expected.”

Mr Roberts said what is left of the

fire-damaged gym was not enough

to accommodate the 15 to 20 members

who used it each day.

He will try to raise the money to

repair it himself. However, he does

not know how much the repairs

will cost.

“We are going to use our contacts

and goodwill through funding and

people who want to help. We’re

pretty confident that we can

make it work and be better than

ever.”

“We just want to get it up and

going to the full potential.”

City council staff were

unavailable to answer questions

from Pegasus Post about the

idea.

Aranui-based Senior Sergeant

Lyle Pryor said getting the gym

repaired would mean a lot to the

community.

“Quite simply, for this community

it’s huge. This is one of the

few places where anyone from all

walks of life can come in and get

involved,” he said.

“They can take kids from all

walks of life, troubled kids, good

kids, what have you, and give them

direction and focus.”

REPAIRS NEEDED: The A-Town Boxing Gym wants to

buy its current premises on Hampshire St in Aranui.

Classic English tale with a twist

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MEET THE new face of one of

medieval’s most timeless English

tales.

Sophia Benter-Lynch will put

a feminine twist on the legend of

Robin Hood, playing the heroic

outlaw herself.

Having just left Cashmere

High School, it will be the first

major role of the aspiring performer’s

career.

The Riccarton House grounds

will transform into Sherwood

Forest as the tale of Robin Hood

and her adventures is brought to

the city.

The new adaption was created

by director Daniel Pengelly

for the city council’s Anthony

Harper Summer Theatre production.

While the classic characters

such as the infamous Sheriff

of Nottingham

and Robin

Hood’s love interest

Lady Marian

will still appear

in the show, audiences

can expect

to see several

makeovers.

Benter-Lynch, 18, said most of

the story remains the same but

all characters’ genders have been

switched so roles such as Marian

PLAYING THE OUTLAW: Sophia Benter-Lynch is playing the new face of English legend

Robin Hood. ​

is played by a man.

Nick Cheesebrough (left), 19,

who will play Marian describes

his reinvented character as a buff

jockey sort of guy with a few

insecurities.

He said the show was inspired

by 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince

of Thieves starring Alan Rickman

and Kevin Costner.

Other significant characters

are Carrie Green as the Sheriff of

Nottingham and Millie Hanford

as Friar Tuck.

Benter-Lynch said it is an

empowering play for familiesespecially

those who take their

daughters to the show.

“Even though Robin Hood is

a young woman she is still great

at leading this army. People actually

follow her and it is a great

message to the youth of today,”

she said.

Benter-Lynch’s interest in

acting was first ignited when

she became obsessed with the

film The Sound of Music at eightyears-old.

“I was like they are on stage

they having so much fun singing

and dancing and it is just like

isn’t this just a dream job to be

able to have fun for the rest of

your life,” she said.

Since then she has worked

with The Court Youth Company,

performed in high school productions

and competed in the

Stage Challenge.

Robin Hood will run from

February 1 to 19.

Scholarship gives student a career boost

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

OLIVER DAVIDSON was going

to study to become a surveyor at

Otago University.

But after achieving three major

feats in the performing arts

realm, the former St Bede’s College

student has decided to take

a risk.

Davidson will study a

Bachelor of Performing Arts at

Otago University after winning a

$16,000 scholarship.

But, not only has he had his

tertiary fees covered, he was

recently accepted to attend an intensive

singing school in Napier

earlier this month, and has been

chosen to represent the country

at the world championships of

performing arts in Los Angeles

in June.

About 300 people auditioned

for a place in Napier’s IFAC

Handa NZ Singing School and

Davidson was one of 73 chosen

to attend.

But, while the 11-day course

focuses on helping students to

accelerate their skills in singing,

Davidson said what he enjoyed

most was being around likeminded

people.

He said his junior years at St

Bede’s were a struggle with some

of his fellow classmates finding

dancing a “weird thing.”

But he said as everyone grew

up they began to see dancing as

“cool” instead.

“I think towards the end of

my high schooling, it was quite

good. There wasn’t many people

like me, it made me stand out so

I wasn’t just part of the norm,”

he said.

Having started in dance at the

Patricia Paul School of Dance

and Southern Ballet Theatre, his

involvement in the arts began to

go up a gear when he performed

in all three productions produced

by Showbiz Christchurch

last year.

Now, encouraged by his No 1

supporter, his mum, Davidson

will have a crack at a career in

arts.

“Some people were like you

are so stupid going down to

Dunedin to do surveying, why

are you wasting your talent?” he

said.

He is now hoping for the best

outcome for his career from his

upcoming competition at the

world championships.

The competition, known as

the official ‘talent Olympics’ is

renowned for giving scholarships

to schools, such as the New York

Film Academy and the New York

Conservatory for Dramatic Arts.

But for now, Davidson is most

excited about having the chance

to “start over again” in Dunedin.

The Spice with a Profound Healing Ability!

TURMERIC

Researchers cannot believe how effective turmeric &

its active ingredient curcumin is proving in supporting

the natural healing of the body, with some calling it a

natural cure-all. It has been found beneficial in well

over 600 diseases. Research has shown a common

factor with disease is inflammation & this is where

curcumin is amazing. It naturally reduces inflammation

present while also stopping inflammation from starting

in the first place. This allows the body a much better

chance of healing itself. Studies have shown curcumin

to be more beneficial than common prescription drugs

for pain, swelling & inflammation.

Curcumin however is normally poorly absorbed in the

body but a patented extra called MERIVA (available as

GO-TURMERIC) has overcome

this with their molecular

delivery system. Meriva is

significantly better absorbed

giving it the potential to

support the healing of

numerous ailments.

Curcumins have been shown to support:

• Joint health, reducing pain, swelling, inflammation & stiffness

• Cardiovascular health, reduces risk factors like CRP (C-Reactive Protein), increases good HDL

cholesterol while reducing oxidised LDL cholesterol, lowers triglycerides (considered a major

risk factor for heart disease) by as much as 65%, supports healthy blood flow

• The body’s natural healing process & without side effects

• Cancer (According to Dr. Bharat Aggarwal, lead researcher at MD Anderson, the #1 cancer

center in America, they have not found a single cancer that curcumin has not been beneficial

• Alzheimer’s & dementia (several small studies have shown dramatic benefits even in

advanced stages)

• Depression (Two recent trials have shown curcumin highly beneficial)

• Diabetes (One study by the “American Diabetes Association” found curcumin to be 100%

effective in preventing type 2 diabetes. Other studies have shown it to protect against

diabetes-related complications.)

Your Local Views

Look when you cook

• By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk

Management Officer

LAST WEEKEND’S wild

weather caused a few issues

around town with our fire

trucks attending a number of

trees and lines down.

Scariest for the occupants was

a house in Marine Pde where a

power pole ended up hanging

over the building. Evacuation of

the home was the only option

until the power authorities

could stabilise things.

THe old pot on stove scenario

was evident again this week

with one of the incidents being

at a school.

I’m not going to say where

because I don’t want to

embarrass the staff but it’s so

easy to see someone putting the

pot on and then rushing off to

do some of the thousands of

jobs needed to do and simply

forgetting.

One third of all structure

fires start in the kitchen. The

saying: ‘Keep looking when

you’re cooking’ never dates.

One of the most frightening

events for a young mother

is accidentally locking your

children in the car. We are

quite often called to assist in

breaking-in and mum’s distress

is commonly picked up by the

child who becomes equally

unhappy.

Not so on the Rapaki Track

on Wednesday, where the

trapped baby was still smiling

when Woolston’s crew finally

broke into the car. Mum smiled

then too!

A late night cigarette outside

saved a late model car from

major damage in Avonhead

in the early hours of Thursday

when a smoker noticed, well,

smoke!

Smouldering electrics would

probably have eventually

destroyed the car.

Not often something good

comes from ciggies!

Zonta garage sale

to boost charities

A GROUP of women have spent

six months collecting items for a

garage sale – with the proceeds

to go to charity.

Zonta Club of Christchurch

South will hold its annual summer

garage sale on February 11

with children’s toys, preserves,

furniture, ornaments and linen

among some of the items for sale

which will be held bordering the

village green on Dyers Pass Rd,

Cashmere.

Club president Sue Clark said

the women have been busy collecting

and making items to sell.

“It is a lot of work but well

worth it,” Ms Clark said.

Members family and friends

have helped by donating items

as well.

“It’s a white elephant sale really,

with a huge array of goods,

all in good order and all donated

to us by friends and families.

This sale is an annual event . . .

and it provides us with a great

start to the year.”

Funds raised are all distributed

to the club’s chosen charities.

“We have a number of very

worthwhile charities which

we support and it is incredibly

satisfying to be able to make

substantial donations to these

groups. Next up on our activities

PEGASUS POST

list will be a visit to the Broadfield

Garden on February 19, and

tickets to this are still available to

the public.”

The Zonta Club of Christchurch

South is part of the national

Zonta network which in the last

four years has donated thousands

of dollars to the Sophie

Elliot Foundation, principally

for the publication and distribution

of the book Loves Me Not.

A copy of this book is given to

every student who participates

in a course jointly delivered by

the Foundation and the New

Zealand Police, and on offer

to all New Zealand secondary

schools.

Mrs Clark says Zonta aligns

itself well with the Sophie Elliot

Foundation because Zonta’s

prime aim is to improve the

status of women worldwide.

The Zonta Club of Christchurch

South is well known for

its annual Zonta Sports Awards

which attract competition from

top athletes and sportspeople

in the secondary schools in the

region.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Offering a

full range

of dental

services

Merivale Dental Group staff, left to right, David

Rowley, Megan Smith, Jenny Kim, Petria Waitzer.

A fortnight. One month. Two

months. How much time and

patience does one need to have

a porcelain crown or a ceramic

dental restoration nowadays?

At Merivale Dental Group, they

acknowledge people have hectic

lifestyles juggling work and family

life leaving little time for multiple

dental appointments.

CEREC same-day dental crowns

and implants are the most modern

technology available in dental

restoration. They are one of a few

practices in Christchurch being

able to manufacture and place

ceramic restorations by taking a 3D

digital scan of your teeth. The tooth

is then designed on clever software

and sculpted by a milling unit which

allows them to produce beautiful,

strong porcelain restorations in

the one appointment. This means

no temporary restoration and no

second visit for their patients.

Merivale Dental Group has

the latest and state-of-the-art

Omnicam CEREC unit. Dentists

David Rowley and Jenny Kim

believe that the advances of digital

dentistry are the way of the future

and pride themselves in producing

strong long lasting restorations.

Behind all beautiful, swift dental

restorations should be firm healthy

gums covering the pearly whites.

When it comes to focussing on

having fantastic oral health, it is very

easy for us to forget gum health.

Megan Smith and Petria Waitzer

are the friendly and experienced

dental hygienists at Merivale Dental

Group. They are both passionate

about prevention and treatment

of gum disease and provide gentle

but thorough removal of plaque,

stains, and tartar build-ups. Since

prevention is better than cure, they

are dedicated to helping you perfect

your homecare technique and aid

in sorting out any problems before

they get worse.

Merivale Dental Group offers

a full range of dental services

and they would love to help you

out with all your dental needs. If

you would like more information

on their friendly practice, please

check out their website at www.

merivaledental.co.nz or call them

NOTE: The owners have just had a subdivision report completed by a Registered

Survey Company, a Geotechnical Report completed by Registered Consulting

Engineers and a subdivision application has been submitted to council. This is

currently in the approval process and applies for two separate titles to be issued for

the property. Title 1 - House on 1023m 2 and Title 2 - Separate section of 1000m 2 .

On a 2023m 2 section which occupies a prime position right in the heart of the bay. Enjoy

the space and the stunning harbour / hill views. Last on the market in 1948, this was home

to one of our much loved local identities. The comfortable family home offers three double

bedrooms and open plan living opening to wrap-around verandah. You will be super cosy

in winter with the Kent Duo wood-burner and heat-pump, plus a still operational “chippy”

in the kitchen. There is easy, sealed access to a detached double garage plus a single

carport and woodshed. This is a golden opportunity to own a good chunk of the bay right

at its centre. Spread out and keep the whole half acre (2023m 2 )for yourself, develop into

a beautiful garden or just keep as real country space for the kids to romp. For a gardener

it is a blank canvas, an additional way to enhance the future value of this property.
