New Brighton library is back

TWO-YEAR-OLD Henry

Ridpath was first in line to sign

up when the New Brighton

Library reopened on Monday

morning.

With a little help from his

mum, Amy Ridpath, Henry

got a membership card and the

opportunity to look around the

newly repaired library.

The library, on Marine Pde,

was closed for more than six

months so earthquake repairs

could be completed.

The building sustained moderate

damage in the February

22, 2011, earthquake, and work

included repairs to the concrete

columns and floors, replacement

of the east-facing first floor

windows, external painting and

new carpet.

While it was closed, the library

was temporarily relocated

in the New Brighton pedestrian

mall.

City council libraries and

information unit manager

Carolyn Robertson said the

library was the first in a series

of openings the city council had

lined up for the year.

The next library to reopen

after earthquake repairs will be

Lyttelton Library and Customer

Services on March 13.

New Brighton Library is open

9am-6pm weekdays, and 10am-

4pm Saturday and Sunday.

THE SOUTH Brighton

Residents’ Association wants

to know what happened to

earthquake donations for the

eastern suburbs.

They have submitted a comprehensive

letter to the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

asking it to find out from the city

council exactly where donations

and insurance claims have been

spent following the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

Board chairwoman Kim

Money said the board and council

staff were already looking into

the spending before the association

raised its questions.

Funds queried include a $1.5

million donation from the Auckland

Council to restore green

spaces in the eastern suburbs,

of which only $15,000 has been

spent in New Brighton.

There was also $5 million donated

by an anonymous source to

the “children of the eastern suburbs,”

which was put in the care

of the Christchurch Earthquake

Appeal Trust.

While the $5 million has been

allocated, the association questioned

whether or not interest

was being collected on the more

than $3 million that is still set

aside for an aquatic centre.

Association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson is also questioning

the city council about specific

information on its insurance

claims, and what has been respent

in the eastern suburbs,

Mrs Money said questions

about the insurance claims were

very valid and the board wants to

get back to the association in as

much detail as possible to answer

all their questions.

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams has also filed an Official

Information Act request on the

spending as well.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News..............................3-8, 14

THE EASTERN suburbs have

got a top advocate in Hugo

Kristinsson.

He does polarise people but

whichever way you look at it he is

passionate about the east, and in

particular South Brighton.

Hugo, chairman of the South

Brighton Residents’ Association,

wants to know if monies donated

after the 2011 earthquake have

in fact found their way into the

eastern suburbs.

No one is saying it hasn’t, but

the community needs people like

Hugo to get the ball rolling and

keep the powers-that-be on their

toes.

The Linwood Keas have got

the rugby league season off to

a good start with victory in the

Crosbie Nines. It was prop Chris

Bamford’s last outing - he’s off to

Orange in New South Wales.

We wish him all the best.

Controversial contractor

vacates Richmond yard

• By Julia Evans

A CONTRACTING company

which had Richmond residents

up in arms has now vacated its

site.

Worthington Contracting

had occupied the yard in Guild

St since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, after

the Government

put emergency

legislation in place

allowing contractors

access to residential

Russell

Worthington

areas.

After nearly six

years, residents

were ready to see the back of

the company and laid several

complaints about dust plumes

and sediment to Environment

Canterbury.

However, after a “collaborative

conversation” between

neighbours and the company,

Worthington Contracting has

now found a new home in North

Canterbury.

Founder Russell Worthington

said they weren’t there to annoy

the residents, it was a matter of

proximity to their jobs, which

have largely been in the east of

GONE: Worthington Contractors has moved away from this

suburban Richmond site to a new location in North Canterbury.

the city.

“We’re listening to what they’re

saying,” he said. The company

has now moved away from the

area.

Although it had the city

council’s support to stay in

the Guild St location, Mr

Worthington said “we just were

trying to be human about it.”

CHANGES: The city council has changed its plan to landscape

Edmonds Park for flood mitigation work.

No go for Edmonds Park path

• By Caitlin Miles

A PATHWAY will not be

installed at Edmonds Park due

to neighbours concerns that

it would be hidden during the

night time.

As part of Bells Creek flood

mitigation work, the park in

Woolston is being developed to

help ease flooding in the area.

The city council’s Land

Drainage Recovery Programme

investigated options for flood

mitigation in Bells Creek and

recommend a package of works

to reduce flooding.

Stage one includes a new detention

pond within the northern

half of Edmonds Park where

the sports fields are currently

located.

By realigning the creek to run

through Edmonds Park, it will

ease flooding in the surrounding

properties. The section of park

planned for the dry channel was

chosen as it is currently not used.

A sealed footpath on the

southern side of the landscape

planting was also planned to

provide access from Aldwins Rd

into the park.

A small wooden footbridge

across the realigned Bells Creek

at the eastern side of the park

would allow pedestrians to

cross from the northern to the

southern side of the creek.

Councillor Yani Johanson said

nearby residents were worried

about safety if the path was not

well lit during the night and

wanted to see it changed.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

had originally signed off on the

landscaping plans but the project

team assigned to the work

had met with nearby residents

and decided not to install the

pathway to ease their concerns.

Brighton’s big day out

• By Julia Evans

MORE THAN 6000 people

joined in the community spirit

at Waitangi Day’s I love New

Brighton festival.

More than 100 volunteers

from 30 different community

groups provided free activities

for residents, including face

painting, a petting zoo, remote

controlled cars, the police

physical training course, doubledecker

bus rides and a showcase

of live music and cultural performances.

Sherianne Summer Taonga

said it was a great day for her

kids and she goes every year.

Started in 2011, as a community

spirit-raising response

to the earthquake, the festival

has grown in attendance every

year and for this event the trend

wasn’t broken.

Youth Alive Trust manager,

James Ridpath said events such

as the festival show there is a

misconception about people

leaving the New Brighton area.

“This event helps prove to

ourselves and the rest of the city

that we’re still very much alive and

active. Events such as this build

community pride and only people

who live or work in New Brighton

know why we love it so much.”

Hellers donated 1000 sausages

for a free barbecue which Leah

Young said was cooked for

the eager public by the New

Brighton Scouts.

The event was put together

by Youth Alive Trust, Rawhiti

Community Sports Inc, New

Brighton Project and Wellbeing

New Brighton with the support

of the Burwood Pegasus Ward

community recreation advisers.

Rawhiti Community Sports’

Hannah Hill said: “It was great

to see thousands of people interacting

with our local groups and

organisations . . . it’s all about

building community spirit and

in New Brighton we have it in

abundance.”

CULTURE: Nga Toi o te Rangi performing live.

Lawrence shows he still has

Three north-west gardens have won awards

at the Christchurch Beautifying Association

summer garden competition. Julia Evans reports

NORTHWOOD’S Peter

Lawrence had a bulldozer

through his property early last

year but downsizing hasn’t

stopped him from adding

another premier garden award to

his 80-strong collection.

Mr Lawrence won four awards

in the Christchurch Beautifying

Association’s summer garden

competition, including the Ruske

and Walsh cups for garden cultivation

and maintenance.

His new garden still looked

“pretty good” but he was surprised

to win the association’s

top award, the Ruske Cup.

Behind his modesty, a lot

of time is spent creating and

maintaining his gardens. Mr

Lawrence said he is out there

each day.

“Starting with a water first

thing each morning . . . every day

is a new challenge.”

Mr Lawrence said it was “good

for the community and good for

the individual” to take pride in

their garden, especially because

Christchurch is the garden city.

In between maintaining his

own property, Mr Lawrence also

runs a gardening club and has

judged the street and garden

awards across the city.

Association president

Ron Andrew said in spite of

downsizing his garden by

half, Mr Lawrence deserved the

win.

“He sets an example for the

other members and the standard

is extremely high,” Mr Andrew

said.

Although Mr Lawrence wins

a lot of awards, new gardeners

were not discouraged from

entering the garden competition.

There were more entries this year

than any other.

Northwood residents Janet

and Brian Lovelock also won

seven awards in the competition.

This included the best display

of flowers and colour impact;

outdoor living; residential

driveway display and the

continuing standard awards.

Mrs Lovelock said they were

thrilled to have won.

Since retiring, the pair have

spent all their time together

in the garden, but that doesn’t

always make for a relaxing day.

“It’s full pressure, but it’s

still enjoyable or we wouldn’t

compete,” said Mrs Lovelock.

For them, the real beauty

comes from encouraging new

gardeners, and Mrs Lovelock

said if their garden inspires other

people “it’s worth it.”

They have been competing in

the garden competition for six

years since moving into their

new house but have already lost

count of the awards they’ve won.

Another north-west resident,

Peter Van der Zee, also won a

pair of awards.

His gold in the best tree/

shrub category and silver in the

Herbert Cup will now sit next

to Mr Van der Zee’s 251 other

gardening awards collected over

the past 30 years.

Although he has a massive

collection of gardening titles, Mr

Van der Zee said winning now is

still as exciting as when he won

his first award, which was for

best novice garden.

He spends a few hours every

day in his garden and said the

awards are “just the icing on the

cake” to his favourite past time.

Gardening was a passion of his

which was passed down from his

grandfather and parents.

Mr Van der Zee said he will

buy a drink for anyone who can

spot his grandfather’s old push

mower still hidden in his garden.

Keas win in Bamford’s send off

• By Gordon Findlater

THE LINWOOD Keas saw

off former Canterbury Bulls

captain Chris Bamford in style

by winning the Crosbie Nines on

Saturday.

The Keas 17-12 win over the

Hornby Panthers in the final was

Bamford’s (left) last for the club.

He left for Australia yesterday to

play for Orange CYMS in New

South Wales.

“It was a good way to send him

off,” said Keas coach Andrew

Auimatagi.

Bamford and the Keas made it a

perfect fortnight in the nine-man

game, backing up their win in the

Rolleston Nines last month with

a perfect run of results at Crosbie

Park.

The Keas went unbeaten in the

morning pool play, accounting

for the Riccarton Knights 23-0,

the Aoraki Eels 35-14 and the

Halswell Hornets 17-15.

They then defeated the

Celebration Lions 23-8 in the

quarter-final before a rematch

with the Hornets in the semifinal.

The encounter was just as

close as their pool play encounter

with the Keas prevailing 15-12. It

also doubled as a rematch of the

Rolleston Nines final.

The Hornets made their way

to the semi-final courtesy of

an impressive 25-18 win over

defending champions the Papanui

Tigers in the quarter-finals.

“I was really impressed with

Halswell. They’ve struggled a

bit recently in the 13-man game

but they’ve got a really tight-knit

bunch and they had a couple of

new recruits playing really well,”

said Auimatagi.

The Keas then met the Panthers

in the final. The Panthers defeated

Nelson Combined 23-13, and the

Aranui Eagles 10-0, on their way

to the final match.

In a rematch of last year’s club

final, the Keas once again proved

too strong for the Panthers.

“It was really pleasing after a

long day,” said Auimatagi

“It’s tough to get through six

games but the boys dug deep and

got the result we wanted.”

Keas prop Alex Todd was

named Crosbie Nines’ MVP,

while Panthers lock Corey Lawrie

was named MVP in the grandfinal

game.

The Keas will now turn their

attention to defending the Pat

Smith Trophy in the Canterbury

club competition which starts on

April 1.

Falck books ticket to Davis Cup

• By Gordon Findlater

BURWOOD PARK’S Reece

Falck has been named in the

New Zealand Junior Davis Cup

team.

Falck, 14, will travel to New

Delhi, India, for the Asia/

Oceania event, which runs from

March 11-19.

The Shirley Boys’ High School

student is the youngest member

of the three-man New Zealand

team, which includes Hutt Valley

student George Stoup, 15,

and Auckland’s Chris Zhang, 15.

Falck’s spot in the squad

comes on the back of winning

the national 14 and under title in

Auckland last month.

“I was hopeful of making it

this year, it’s really exciting,” he

said.

Before heading to New Delhi,

the New Zealand team will visit

Thailand, where they will have

the chance to play in the LTAT

ITF grade one tournament

in early March. It is the only

grade one junior tournament

in Asia during the month and

will feature some of the world’s

best under-18 players, including

junior world No 2 Yibing Wu

from China.

“It’s going to be pretty hard

even just to qualify there

because it’s grade one. I didn’t

play that well at my first ITF in

Christchurch last month because

I was pretty tired after all of the

national tournaments,” said

Falck.

The Junior Davis Cup, an

international team competition

for players aged 16 and under,

was launched by the ITF in

1985. New Zealand will have the

chance to qualify for the World

Group Finals in Hungary if they

EXPOSURE: Reece

Falck will have

the opportunity to

play some of Asia/

Oceania’s top players

at the Junior Davis Cup. ​

finish as one of the top four

teams in New Delhi.

The junior team will hope

they have more luck than the

senior Davis Cup team who were

beaten 4-1 by India in their Asia/

Oceania group one tie earlier

this month.

Falck, who is coached by his

father Andrew, had a fortnight

to remember in January.

He won the 14 and under

nationals, defeating No 1 seed

Nick Beamish 6-0, 6-2, in the final.

He then helped Canterbury

to victory in the 14 and under

teams event, beating Auckland

5-4 in the final.

Before that, Falck made it to

the second round of the 16 and

under nationals at Wilding Park

before being beaten 5-7, 6-4, 1-6,

by Stoupe.

Falck leaves for Thailand and

India early next month.

How do we grow vegetables??

2016 saw a group of Year 10 students working 3 hours a week for 5 weeks to plan

and create a garden!

We visited Cultivate Christchurch Urban Garden who gave us so much information

and help with our ideas. So it was back to school where 3 students were

responsible for planning, purchasing and installing an irrigation system while 12

students built wooden planter boxes and planted seeds and seedlings in these and

some empty baths.

Uniform update

After several months of staff, family and student deliberation, the student

council has selected a winter jacket which is now part of our uniform.

The jacket is unisex with a hidden hood, waterproof outer and thermal inner.

Jackets are available from the school at a cost of $85.00. Payments can be made

by cash, EFTPOS or layby.

Lettuces, cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, zucchini, peas, celery, a lemon

tree, herbs, flowers and a grapevine are now flourishing (amongst the weeds that

have grown over the Christmas holiday period!!) We have had many kind donations

that have allowed this to happen – Oderings, Fusion Solutions, The Warehouse,

Willowbank, and Mairehau High School Environment Committee – Many thanks!

The garden is part of cross-curricular learning which introduces students to

valuable life-long skills.

KIDSTUFF

Progress counts

in maths class

News

PEGASUS POST

If you’re a parent of school-aged children, chances are

that there is a subject they just don’t like. And for many

kids, that subject is maths.

Like many parents, Dale and Kirsty found that their

daughter Sayler, 8, just didn’t understand maths and it

was proving difficult to keep up at school. So, Dale and

Kirsty decided it was time to give Sayler that extra help she

needed and enrolled her in the Kumon Maths Programme

at their local centre in Fendalton. It was during the August

Free Trial, and so they decided to see if their older son Zach

might enjoy Kumon Maths also.

Six months later and both children are still doing daily

worksheets with Kumon. Maths is now one of Zach’s

favourite subjects and Sayler has demonstrated a real

motivation for improving in her studies. That Kumon

worksheets are timed makes this easy for Sayler to see, ‘She

is really keen to beat her time. I think having those little

goals certainly help’ said Dale.

A sense of achievement can go a long way when it comes

to engaging with maths. ‘Everyone likes it when they have

success, don’t they? Being able to see that progress is great’

said Kirsty.

‘Kumon focuses on maths skills - exclusively and

expertly’ said Marette Wells who runs the Kumon

Fendalton Education Centre. ‘The ability of the student

does not matter; Kumon brings confidence as they grow

into their potential’.

Kumon follows a method that develops self-learning in

children which is important to parents like Kirsty. ‘I think

it’s really important that our children know that if they

need to find out how to do something then they have the

skills to work it out.’

For more information contact your local Kumon

Education Centre or visit our website nz.kumonglobal.com

Back to school with confidence

At Kumon, students begin study at a level that allows them to build

confidence from day one. Students progress through the programmes

based on their ability rather than their age. Over time, students can study

advanced material confidently and independently for success in school

and everyday life.

Contact your local Kumon Centre to hear how we can support your

child’s learning.

Ms van der Plas said the

offer gave her more time to

raise the $10,000 needed to

buy either a van or double

could carry dogs securely.

She said they used a

vehicle everyday, whether

it be picking up dogs,

dropping them off at

the vet, or taking food

or supplies to the foster

families.

So far, the Givealittle

page she set up had raised

nearly $2000.

When good pain goes bad

Without pain we would not live very long, pain alerts us to

tissue damage, it makes us hypervigilant, looking after the part

to prevent further damage and allowing repair and healing. For

example limping after rolling an ankle takes load off that part.

The understanding of how pain works

has improved hugely over the last few

years. Up until the 1970’s a relatively

simple Cartesian model of pain persisted

where, it was thought, pain receptors in

the skin sent messages to a pain centre in

the brain which resulted in some action

to avoid further damage. However this

did not explain how some people could

experience pain long after the tissues had

healed or the body part was absent after

amputation.

It is now known that pain is a product

of our brain and spinal cord, not of tissue

damage, nerves merely carry messages

regarding the state of our tissues to the

brain which decides if those signals are

something to worry about or not.

Whether or not something feels painful

or not depends on many factors not just

tissue damage, sometimes our pain can

outlast the healing of the injury or feel

worse than it should for the degree of

harm done to the body.

Through various mechanisms our brain

can turn the pain up or down. If we are

fearful of the what may be causing the pain

it will be worse, for example “my mother

had a pain just like this and she had

cancer” or “I wont be able to keep doing

my job – I’ll be unemployed and I’ve got

a big mortage”. Work issues, if you were

have a dispute with the boss or are being

bullied by a work mate, if a pain prevents

this from happening the painful sensation

will be greater. Stress in general from all

sources, earthquake repairs, family issues,

money worries will all heighten pain

levels.

In emergency situations getting out of

fire, shifting debris off someone after an

earthquake and so on our personal pain

will be turned down by our brain where

survival is the main issue. To a lesser

extend injuries received playing sport

won’t hurt until the game is over – “I

remember getting a bit of a bump but it

didn’t hurt at the time”.

It is usually because of pain that we seek

treatment – it is your brain telling you

to get it sorted. Effective treatment of a

painful injury also requires explanation /

education about how pain works and how

best to manage it.

REAL ESTATE

Enviable Fendalton address

26 Hinau Street, Fendalton

Deadline Sale - all offers will be presented 28th February 2017 unless sold prior.

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street carparks | Listing # SMT10078

Situated in the heart of this popular

part of the city, this beautifully renovated

home has been moderinised with families

in mind. Encompassing four bedrooms

and two bathrooms, generous off street

parking, a sunny north facing family

sized section plus contemporary master

bedroom combined parents retreat with

its own ensuite complimented by a private

secluded garden and outdoor deck.

Our vendors have seamlessly blended

design elements with the timeless features

of this classic home. The contemporary

kitchen - complete with engineered stone

surfaces and European appliances- is a real

highlight, while the sun-soaked living and

dining spaces offer ample room for families

to enjoy.

This character bungalow has been

modernised throughout including

insulation, a double-glazed retro fit, new

plumbing, and new roof while enduring

features such as timber floors and French

doors help to retain the appeal.

Outside, the large 908m2 section

along with the sun-soaked patio area is

an entertainer’s delight with manicured

lawns offering plenty of space for growing

families.

Double garaging and a generous

driveway with plenty of off-street parking

complete the package.

The location is exceptional, with zoning

for the ever-popular Girls’ and Boys’ High

School, St Thomas’, St Patrick’s and close

distance to Medbury, Rangi Ruru and St

Andrews’, underpinning your investment

and the proximity to the Westfields and

the Fendalton Village shopping precinct

and an easy stroll to the Riccarton Farmers

Market - not to mention cafes, parks and

key public transport routes - ensuring

you’ll want for nothing.

My owners are sad to be leaving this

fabulous spot which has served their family

well but resolute in their decision, and a

change of ownership is imminent. Interest

will invariably be high and immediate

action is advised.

in New Brighton stands the Urban

Corner Cafe (alongside with e

Bower), which is one of the most

eclectic establishments in the city.

Urban Corner is uniquely

Christchurch in that it’s constructed of

18 shipping containers. It’s a standout

on the landscape, situated near the

residential red zone and overlooking

the Avon River. Upon setting foot

inside this spacious establishment, you

immediately forget about its modular

construction methods.

With its warm and family-friendly

vibe, Urban Corner has become a

community hub for New Brighton

locals. e restaurant serves up brunch, lunch and

dinner on a daily basis. Menu items are seasonal and

the Pork Belly Burger served with coleslaw and

cranberry sauce is a must-try for summer.

ere’s also a kids menu and a playground outside,

catering to mums looking for a place to bring the little

ones for a play date. ere’s Farmyard Animal Day with

pony rides on the last Sunday of every month in

summer, weather permitting, which includes a Llama

with a bad haircut and ponies of all sizes. As well as a

separate shipping container that can be hired for kids

parties.

With plenty of entertainment for the older crowd as

well, ‘Stitch n Bitch’ is hosted by a local

artists and is every second Monday.

It’s an excellent spot to discover new

Kiwi artists and local talent.

e dining room is adorned with

brightly-coloured kitschy decor. You

can purchase any of the art that lines

the walls of this establishment. You’re

sure to get a laugh out of some of the

quirky tongue-in-cheek posters and

signage.

Sharing the premises with e

Bower proves advantageous as Urban

Corner features an extensive beer and

wine list without the central-city price

tag. e Friday menu comes with a

$20 price tag, there is always events

and special deals - including Wednesday and ursday

feed the family of four for $50. Keep an eye on their

Facebook page for even more stellar specials. If you are

looking for a takeaway, there is a full range of cabinet

available too.

A little bit different from your traditional cafe and

bar, this friendly place is sure to delight. If you’re

looking for a local eatery, or keen to experience the

warmth and hospitality of the eastern suburbs. Urban

Corner is a sure bet.
