Kids go crazy<br />

over crayfish<br />

Matariki<br />

SHIRLEY PRIMARY School pupils had mixed<br />

reactions when they were given the opportunity to<br />

get up close and personal with crayfish.<br />

Teachers Chanelle Gleimius and Alana Cochrane<br />

said some children were interested in looking and<br />

identifying parts of the crayfish and others were a<br />

little “freaked out.”<br />

The visit from Theo’s Fisheries was part of<br />

inquiry-based literacy lessons about ocean<br />

creatures.<br />

The year 1 and 2 pupils have learnt about sharks,<br />

whales, crabs, seahorses and crayfish.<br />

Plan to<br />

merge<br />

Rawhiti,<br />

Avondale<br />

golf clubs<br />

goes off<br />

course<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

PLANS TO shift the Rawhiti and<br />

Avondale golf courses and merge<br />

them in the red zone may be dead<br />

in the water.<br />

The public was asked by Regenerate<br />

Christchurch to give feedback<br />

on 10 possible combinations<br />

of use for the red zone – including<br />

merging Avondale and Rawhiti<br />

golf clubs in Bexley.<br />

That would leave the way for the<br />

land at Rawhiti and Avondale to<br />

be used for housing.<br />

But, of the more than 1800<br />

responses, less than a quarter<br />

mentioned the housing idea.<br />

Coastal-Burwood Ward city<br />

councillor Glenn Livingstone<br />

does not believe Regenerate will<br />

go ahead with the land swap idea.<br />

“I think they will listen to the<br />

people . . . it’s too contentious and,<br />

although housing is my portfolio<br />

at council, community well-being<br />

is something that belongs to all of<br />

us,” Cr Livingstone said.<br />

THE LOOK and feel of New Brighton is in<br />

the balance.<br />

On page 1 today we reveal a survey over<br />

use of the red zone. A key part is whether<br />

Rawhiti Golf Club will move to Bexley and<br />

open the way up for housing on its current site.<br />

The Rawhiti course is publicly owned and is prime real estate<br />

for a developer.<br />

The plan would be to merge Rawhiti and Avondale Golf Club<br />

at Bexley. But Avondale owns its own land and has new clubrooms.<br />

Club members appear to be split on the move.<br />

Interesting times.<br />

Speaking of which we’ve refreshed our masthead and page 2,<br />

and there’s more to changes in the wind. I’ll keep you posted.<br />

MP joins fight to stop school site sale<br />

Bid to keep hall<br />

for community<br />

use ramps up<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

CHRISTCHURCH East MP<br />

Poto Williams may have her<br />

first challenge as a part of the<br />

new Government – saving the<br />

Central New Brighton School<br />

site.<br />

Pressure is now on Ms Williams<br />

to halt the sale of the site,<br />

which includes Roy<br />

Stokes Hall. It could<br />

be sold to private<br />

developers.<br />

The site is set to<br />

Poto<br />

Williams<br />

go on the market<br />

in February. Ms<br />

Williams has been<br />

in contact with both<br />

the minister of education and<br />

minister for land information<br />

about the issue.<br />

“I am hopeful that (Minister<br />

of Education Chris (Hipkins)<br />

will think about the concerns of<br />

the community and realise how<br />

well loved the Roy Stokes Hall is<br />

within the area.”<br />

The hall was built following<br />

a large fundraising effort from<br />

the community, which spanned<br />

more than 15 years.<br />

COMMUNITY EFFORT: Sylvia Smyth, Sue Davidson, Lisa<br />

Wingfield and Chris Sarrow are among those pushing to save<br />

Roy Stokes Hall on the old Central New Brighton School site.<br />

Coastal-Burwood Ward city<br />

councillor David East has another<br />

idea to save the school.<br />

“A concern is the fact that<br />

the Ministry of Education have<br />

underestimated the need for a<br />

school on this side of town. They<br />

amalgamated three of them and<br />

Rawhiti is bursting at the seams<br />

now and South Brighton is heading<br />

that way.”<br />

“Going forward, it may well be<br />

that we need another school in<br />

the not too distant future. Maybe<br />

the site needs to be re-developed<br />

Helping us,<br />

Helps tHe<br />

community<br />

Drop off or buy<br />

for a smaller school.”<br />

Land Information New Zealand<br />

is currently in the process<br />

of organising the site’s sale on<br />

behalf of the Ministry of Education.<br />

However, Ms Williams said the<br />

sale was not yet definite.<br />

“There is a chance it could be<br />

halted. The site is in a process<br />

but I understand officials are<br />

providing advice to the minister<br />

(of education) at the moment,”<br />

she said.<br />

Sylvia Smyth wants Ms Williams<br />

to put pressure on to save the<br />

site. “We are hoping she will<br />

help move it forward and she has<br />

been helping already. She has<br />

already written to the minister<br />

(for land information).”<br />

“We are also writing letters to<br />

the minister, so it’s all a full community<br />

effort,” she said.<br />

Ms Williams said there was<br />

a wider issue regarding vacant<br />

school sites on the east.<br />

“We know how tragic it was<br />

having the schools closed in the<br />

first place – we can see the absolute<br />

value of those schools turned<br />

into community hubs. I hope<br />

that that provides enough reason<br />

to show, at least in the shortterm,<br />

that it’s the best outcome<br />

for the community.”<br />

Currently there are demolition<br />

plans for the old Aranui High<br />

School site as well.<br />

The Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board has agreed to<br />

write to the Ministry of Education<br />

to request a meeting to<br />

potentially halt the demolition,<br />

so community groups can use<br />

the buildings.<br />

East moves to stop possible<br />

closure of New Brighton bank<br />

• By Sophie Cornish and Georgia<br />

O’Connor-Harding<br />

COASTAL-Burwood Ward<br />

city councillor David East has<br />

stepped in to try and stop the<br />

possible closure of Westpac’s<br />

New Brighton branch.<br />

Cr East has spoken to<br />

Development Christchurch Ltd<br />

to see if the city council-owned<br />

company can do anything to halt<br />

or stop the proposed closure.<br />

DCL is responsible for<br />

rejuvenating New Brighton.<br />

“We are talking with Westpac<br />

to see if we can get this decision<br />

put off for a while longer, until<br />

such time when we can see if<br />

the hot salt water pools and the<br />

business re-invigoration will<br />

impact on the business sector on<br />

this side of town,” said Cr East.<br />

New Brighton is one of three<br />

Westpac branches on the<br />

chopping block, along with<br />

Lincoln and Sydenham.<br />

Westpac says internet and<br />

mobile phone banking, as well<br />

as the changing population<br />

because of the earthquakes, are<br />

the reasons behind the planned<br />

closures.<br />

“Our customers are<br />

branch.<br />

increasingly using technology<br />

for their banking needs, which<br />

is resulting in fewer branch<br />

transactions,” said Westpac<br />

spokeswoman Heather Shiels.<br />

Ms Shiels said online<br />

transactions had increased by<br />

66 per cent in five years, while<br />

customers using mobile-only<br />

devices had increased from 24 to<br />

39 per cent in the past two years.<br />

The earthquakes had also<br />

played a role, she said.<br />

“Since the 2010 and 2011<br />

earthquakes the region has<br />

experienced significant shifts<br />

in population, which have<br />

impacted where people are<br />

living, working and banking.”<br />

First Union, which represents<br />

bank staff, said it was “odd” for<br />

the earthquakes to be used as<br />

a reason for a branch to close,<br />

particularly in Lincoln.<br />

“The stats quite clearly<br />

demonstrate the population<br />

is growing . . . we have been<br />

puzzled by it,” First Union<br />

southern region secretary Paul<br />

Watson said.<br />

Fireworks display could be changed<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

MAJOR CHANGES could be in<br />

store for New Brighton’s annual<br />

Guy Fawkes fireworks event.<br />

Last week the city council<br />

released a survey asking for<br />

feedback about the event.<br />

Questions included whether<br />

the event should be moved to the<br />

middle of the year to celebrate<br />

Matariki (Maori new year),<br />

moved to the nearest weekend to<br />

<strong>November</strong> 5 and/or moved out of<br />

New Brighton.<br />

City councillor Sara<br />

Templeton backs the Matariki<br />

idea.<br />

“Changing it to a New Zealand<br />

celebration from an irrelevant<br />

400-year-old English one would<br />

be a great move and hosting it in<br />

winter at 6.30pm would be much<br />

more inclusive of the younger<br />

members of our community,” Cr<br />

Templeton said in a Facebook<br />

post.<br />

Coastal-Burwood Ward city<br />

councillor Glenn Livingstone<br />

wants something different all<br />

together.<br />

“I would like to build the event<br />

around celebrating our diversity<br />

as a city. We have that diversity<br />

in the Coastal-Burwood area<br />

with all the different nationalities<br />

and cultures.”<br />

Cr Livingstone would like to<br />

see the fireworks display have<br />

a Parihaka theme built around<br />

it, since the anniversary is<br />

celebrated on the same day as<br />

Guy Fawkes.<br />

“I’m sure we can build in<br />

a theme around celebrating<br />

Parihaka on the same day. I don’t<br />

want it shifted into the middle<br />

of the year . . . I think as a nation<br />

it is important that we look at<br />

Parihaka,” he said.<br />

Parihaka symbolises the<br />

peaceful resistance to confiscated<br />

Maori land following the<br />

invasion of 1600 Government<br />

troops on the western Taranaki<br />

settlement in 1881.<br />

City council manager of events<br />

and arts Karena Finnie said<br />

the survey was part of several<br />

completed every year by the<br />

events and arts team on a range<br />

of events to assist with future<br />

development.<br />

The primary issue with the<br />

event being in New Brighton is<br />

traffic management.<br />

BRIGHT<br />

LIGHTS: New<br />

Brighton’s<br />

fireworks<br />

display may<br />

face changes<br />

including<br />

being moved<br />

to the middle<br />

of the year<br />

to celebrate<br />

Matariki.<br />

KORZH<br />

Coastal-Burwood city<br />

councillor Ward David East<br />

agrees it could be done a lot<br />

better.<br />

“Everyone tries to get out of<br />

New Brighton via Pages Rd or<br />

QE II Drive. There are other<br />

ways including through South<br />

New Brighton or Parklands.”<br />

Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board chairwoman Kim Money<br />

also agreed, saying there are<br />

“some difficulties getting in and<br />

out.”<br />

Scholarship<br />

for Marian<br />

student<br />

MARIAN College student Keely<br />

Stuart has received a Ngā Mahi-a-<br />

Ringa Pūtaiao Scholarship from<br />

Otago University.<br />

The fully-funded scholarship<br />

will provide the year 11 student<br />

the opportunity to participate in a<br />

week-long programme during the<br />

holidays and experience being a<br />

science student on campus.<br />

Hands-On is a programme run<br />

by the university which encourages<br />

young New Zealanders to<br />

consider further study as a step in<br />

their career pathway.<br />

Keely is very excited to be accepted<br />

onto the programme.<br />

“I’m interested in a career in<br />

health, science and physiology so<br />

it will be a great opportunity to<br />

see what Otago University is like<br />

and whether I want to go on to<br />

study there,” she said.<br />

Hands-On at Otago co-ordinator<br />

and science education officer<br />

Sandra Copeland said this year<br />

a record 560 applications for 400<br />

places were received.<br />

The aim of the Ngā Mahi-a-<br />

Ringa Pūtaiao Scholarship is to<br />

inspire and motivate young Maori<br />

students to develop their science<br />

knowledge and skill.<br />

Plan to merge golf courses hits rough<br />

•From page 1<br />

“And I can’t see the point in<br />

forcing the community down<br />

a path they don’t want to go,”<br />

he said.<br />

Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community Board<br />

chairwoman Kim Money<br />

agreed: “Our community<br />

have made it quite clear that<br />

they don’t want it (Rawhiti<br />

golf course) to be used for<br />

residential housing, but that<br />

doesn’t mean there aren’t other<br />

alternatives.”<br />

The survey showed there<br />

was little support for largescale<br />

development. However,<br />

there was some support for<br />

innovative and adaptable<br />

housing.<br />

Said Regenerate<br />

Christchurch chief<br />

executive Ivan Iafeta:<br />

“The proposed landswap<br />

with Avondale<br />

and Rawhiti golf<br />

courses was generally<br />

not supported.<br />

“A number of people<br />

who responded used<br />

this engagement to show their<br />

support for specific projects.<br />

As we collate the feedback,<br />

some common themes are<br />

emerging.’’<br />

Ivan Iafeta<br />

But he would not rule out the<br />

land swap idea as a possibility.<br />

“A range of factors will<br />

be considered in the<br />

decision-making<br />

process, including public<br />

feedback,” said Mr Iafeta.<br />

However, the merger<br />

and switch to Bexley<br />

could be decided by the<br />

golf clubs.<br />

Said Rawhiti vicepresident<br />

Leon Zilinskas:<br />

“We are not committing<br />

ourselves to anything until a<br />

lot further into the process.<br />

Without details there’s no<br />

way we can make a decision<br />

on behalf of our members .<br />

. . from what I am hearing<br />

from the community, it seems<br />

unlikely to happen.”<br />

Avondale president Dave<br />

Buchanan said the club was<br />

divided over the idea, but he<br />

has major concerns about it.<br />

“Our golf course is owned<br />

debt free by the club and we<br />

also have just about completed<br />

the rebuild of our new<br />

clubrooms. Our club would<br />

be foolish to put our asset at<br />

risk, unless the proposal put<br />

forward is a better option than<br />

we already have and, at this<br />

point in time, it is not.”<br />

It has been a year of significant thinking and<br />

input regarding how we should re-develop<br />

College is clear-eyed about the forms of<br />

education that work for our students and we<br />

have this bedrock of understanding through<br />

our partnership with our community.<br />

Our community views education as<br />

the wellbeing of the whole person. All<br />

developmentally positive experiences enrich<br />

our students’ understanding of whom they<br />

are and broaden their outlook. They nurture<br />

students’ classroom focus by contextualising<br />

their learning and sowing the seeds of positive<br />

ambition.<br />

and building on these successes.<br />

2. How the learning at LC connects to what<br />

the students want to do when they leave<br />

school. “What are my post-school pathways<br />

and how does LC help me to achieve these<br />

pathways?”<br />

In this way learning is meaningful to the<br />

individual and strengths-based. At Linwood<br />

College the individual matters.<br />

Finally, the Education Review Office reviewed<br />

Linwood College in the second half of Term 3.<br />

The confirmed report is now public and I am<br />

delighted to say that the school is back on<br />

the three year return cycle. It is a testament<br />

to everyone’s collective vision and positive<br />

work for our school: Board of Trustees,<br />

staff, students, whanau, partner schools and<br />

community.<br />

Nga mihi nui and best wishes for the festive<br />

season and summer holiday.<br />

Once again, Linwood College’s annual 'Sports Awards' ceremony was a very successful<br />

evening. We were lucky enough to have Shane Thrower return to Linwood College as our guest<br />

speaker, talking about how sport has impacted his life and the opportunities that it can provide.<br />

Richard Edmundson (Principal) and Finlay Laird (Linwood College Board of Trustees member),<br />

presented the major awards for the evening. We also had special guests from Christs' College<br />

and ARA Institute of Canterbury in attendance.<br />

We would like to thank the Linwood College community and Linwood College Board of Trustees<br />

for their continuous support as we continue to pursue sporting excellence.<br />

Congratulations to all of our award winners for <strong>2017</strong>.<br />

Top awards were presented to the following accomplished students:<br />

The outdoor Duke of Edinburgh<br />

experience has helped us to<br />

learn new things about life and<br />

also about ourselves. Although<br />

it pushed us to our mental<br />

best experience ever! We have<br />

learnt to really be grateful for<br />

the small things in life!<br />

Desk<br />

I wish to acknowledge all of our 2018<br />

Senior Award recipients; I am so proud<br />

of you and your achievements to<br />

self, whanau, and school. Among the<br />

assembly of award winners are students<br />

who have always known they would<br />

do well at school and they will go on to undertake study at a tertiary level, be<br />

it university or Polytech. Beside those students are some who a few years ago<br />

could not have imagined completing Year 13, and are leaving Mairehau High<br />

School with NCEA Level 3 at the end of this year. Some students are gifted<br />

learners who have found pleasure in their learning. others have had to struggle<br />

for every achievement or unit standard. But each student can look to the future,<br />

nurtured by the Mairehau High School environment. I wish you all the very best.<br />

So, I congratulate all students on your achievements, and I also congratulate<br />

your parents, family and your teachers and all who have supported you during<br />

your years of school. You are our inspiration.<br />

“You are one, yet you are only one<br />

You cannot do everything, but you can do something<br />

Having hope, having aspirations, and always trying to improve<br />

I trust what you can do, you will do.”<br />

I also take this opportunity to wish all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New<br />

Year. go out and make a positive difference in the world.<br />

The Avon Shirley Masonic Lodge Awards<br />

The Avon Shirley Masonic Lodge good Citizenship Award – recognises service to<br />

the school. These awards are kindly donated by The Avon Shirley Masonic Lodge.<br />

To be selected for the Citizenship award, a student will display qualities which<br />

include tolerance, kindness and tact in relating to others. good Citizenship is<br />

reflected in a desire to help others, to put others first, and to serve others selflessly<br />

without expected reward.<br />

In the spirit of this award, the recipients have nominated an organisation which<br />

will receive a significant donation on their behalf. Together, our two students<br />

have decided that the generous gift of $500 from the lodge will go to KIDSCAN<br />

CHArITY.<br />

We are extremely pleased to introduce to you, SHILAH NorMAN. Shilah is<br />

described by our school staff as a caring, kind, honest and understanding young<br />

lady. She has the full trust of staff for any task, being 100% reliable, punctual<br />

and honest. Shilah demonstrates maturity and intelligence in her relationships<br />

with both peers and adults and is seen by her teachers as a ‘big-picture thinker’ –<br />

someone who thinks outside the ‘square’ and beyond the <strong>Pegasus</strong> Bay coastline to<br />

consider and reflect wisely on global issues and solutions.<br />

Shilah’s strength in leadership has been demonstrated over the years as she has<br />

involved herself in both the Student Council as co-chairperson, and as a member<br />

of the Student Executive. Shilah will gladly and willingly take on leadership roles<br />

in all areas of school and community involvement. It comes as no surprise that her<br />

career intentions are recorded as youth work, counselling or therapy work.<br />

our second recipient for the Citizenship Award is BENJAMIN LoWE. Benjamin<br />

is described by staff as diligent, self-motivated and self-disciplined. He is a<br />

determined individual with a strong work ethic. Ben demonstrates respect,<br />

warmth, maturity and intelligence, as well as a cheerful and positive attitude.<br />

This year Benjamin has been developing his leadership skills, first at a MHErC<br />

Communications Skills course, followed by participation in the city-wide World<br />

Vision Leadership Conference. He also supported the annual rSA red Poppy<br />

Day fundraising appeal. Benjamin has served in the Senior Student Executive<br />

(Community and Peer Support) and was a highly reliable and relatable Peer<br />

Support Leader. He recently demonstrated leadership in kapahaka performance<br />

and was one of only two student presenters at our annual Colours Award<br />

ceremony recently.<br />

over the years, Benjamin has willingly represented our school with pride. We are<br />

very proud of Benjamin’s citizenship record over the last five years and he will be<br />

warmly remembered for his significant service to our community.<br />

Christmas<br />

Creative wrapping<br />

adds intrigue to gifts<br />

Most of the malls offer a free gift-wrapping service, which<br />

is a great help at this busy time, but for those who prefer<br />

to wrap their own here are a few ideas to make gifts look<br />

unique and exciting.<br />

The first tip to make the job easier and<br />

the wrapping look more professional is to<br />

do the task on a flat surface – a table or a<br />

hard floor.<br />

Recycling has become an important<br />

aspect of modern-day life, and that’s easy<br />

to do with gift-wrapping. For example,<br />

those brown paper bags you have put<br />

aside are ideal, especially for odd-shaped<br />

gifts. To give them a Christmassy look,<br />

you could glue on those left-over pieces<br />

of wrapping paper from last year that are<br />

too small to use, and add a candy cane or<br />

chocolate with the gift tag.<br />

Another quirky idea is to wrap your gifts<br />

in fabric. You could cut up a garment you<br />

no longer wear, or look out those left over<br />

pieces from curtains or clothing you have<br />

made. Tie them up with fabric ribbon to<br />

complete the look.<br />

in <strong>Pegasus</strong> <strong>Post</strong><br />

Using newspaper or cardboard boxes as<br />

wrapping is another recycling idea, and<br />

you could add a festive look by tying<br />

them with Christmas ribbon.<br />

For long-shaped gifts, why not wrap them<br />

to look like a Christmas cracker. Place a<br />

tube of cardboard around the item, then<br />

put it inside a sheet of wrapping paper,<br />

secure it with tape then scrunch up the<br />

ends like a cracker and tie them off with<br />

coloured ribbon.<br />

Kitchen foil is another wrapping option.<br />

Being silver and shiny it already has a<br />

festive look, which you could enhance<br />

with bright-coloured ribbon.<br />

Make a container, such as a jar, tin or<br />

tray one part of the gift. Complete it with<br />

chocolates, nuts or biscuits and wrap the<br />

gift in clear cellophane tied with brightcoloured<br />

ribbon.<br />

Your Local Views<br />

Readers respond to last<br />

week’s story about the<br />

Central New Brighton<br />

School site potentially<br />

going on the market to<br />

private investors<br />

Janice Belgrave – Similar<br />

issue with the Aranui School<br />

site on Breezes Rd. It is about<br />

to be demolished, and the is a<br />

magnificent community hall on<br />

site that needs to be saved. Community<br />

groups are trying to save<br />

it, but why the heck should they<br />

have to go to so much trouble?<br />

It should never be considered<br />

to be bulldozed, but these decisions<br />

were made by the previous<br />

Government and are difficult to<br />

turn over. So frustrating when<br />

perfectly good buildings are lost<br />

for no reason.<br />

Leah Young – I always knew<br />

this was the reason Central New<br />

Brighton School closed. The<br />

Government can get more money<br />

by selling the land than having a<br />

school on the site.<br />

Carolyn Stirling – The<br />

Government could turn these<br />

classrooms into senior studio<br />

apartments. My friend lives in a<br />

converted school in the United<br />

States.<br />

Kimberley Borell – And<br />

yet my grandsons had to move<br />

schools three times because of<br />

this school closing.<br />

Helen Young – Leave this<br />

hall alone. As a community<br />

person I’d like to see this stay<br />

in the community and not be<br />

sold off to developers. As it is,<br />

they took away the pool from<br />

the community which they<br />

had no right to do as this was a<br />

community asset as well. Our<br />

community needs to keep this<br />

as they closed the school which<br />

did not need to be done as they<br />

did not loose as many students as<br />

they clamed they did. The South<br />

New Brighton School should<br />

have been closed as they lost a<br />

lot more students from South<br />

New Brighton, Southshore and<br />

Bexley as that was where most<br />

of their students moved from.<br />

Stop taking away things from the<br />

New Brighton area, we have had<br />

enough of this happening to us.<br />

Marie Graham – Should<br />

definitely keep the hall . . . the<br />

A COMBINATION of<br />

community groups are helping<br />

low decile pupils get the school<br />

camp experience.<br />

Year 5 and 6 pupils at Linwood<br />

North School recently went on<br />

camp to Living Springs with 50<br />

per cent of their fees paid for.<br />

The Aorangi Sponsorship<br />

Programme coupled with Mitre<br />

10 and Christchurch Girls’ High<br />

School’s Interact group raised<br />

funds to get the pupils to the<br />

camp.<br />

The sponsorship programme<br />

was set up last year and aims to<br />

get underprivileged children an<br />

outdoor education experience.<br />

Linwood North School principal<br />

Sandra Smith said it’s not<br />

common for her pupils to go to<br />

camp and they are only able to if<br />

community funding is available.<br />

“The children that went had<br />

an amazing time. The thing that<br />

Aldridge.<br />

Some “business clusters” are<br />

Last year, six low decile schools<br />

The programme is aiming for<br />

The camps are based on<br />

outdoor adventure learning<br />

BEFORE<br />

AFTER<br />

Summer is coming! That means busy times at the Shirley Tennis Club<br />

as its season of competition and social tennis gets underway. The club<br />

has new post-quake facilities in the beautiful surroundings of Richmond<br />

Park and is keen to welcome new members, whether new to the sport<br />

or experienced tennis players. The club offers coaching opportunities,<br />

great new facilities and chances to enjoy tennis in a local, friendly,<br />

family-oriented environment.<br />

The club’s address is 102 Woodchester Ave. In these days of roadworks<br />

and detours, the best vehicle access is to turn into Medway St<br />

from North Parade and then turn left into Woodchester Ave; plenty of<br />

carparking is available. Contact phone number is 03 385 9531.<br />

The Shirley Tennis Club has been a part of the sporting scene in<br />

Richmond since 1925. The devastating earthquakes in 2011 saw<br />

damage to all nine courts and the clubrooms; worse than any other<br />

tennis club in Christchurch. This damage essentially took the club out<br />

of action for a summer season, but the club has bounced back with the<br />

full replacement of all courts and the clubrooms by <strong>2017</strong>.<br />

The club is in the final phase of what will be a $1 million investment<br />

that has taken place over the past six years. This investment has largely<br />

been funded through grants from charitable trusts and club fundraising,<br />

with a huge amount of voluntary effort from members at numerous<br />

working bees.<br />

The end result is a fantastic 9-court facility (including four courts that<br />

are floodlit) combined with brand-new clubrooms, making a collective<br />

package that is compelling for the eastern Christchurch tennis scene.<br />

The club has constructed courts on the old Shirley Bowling Club site,<br />

and has given its two back courts (closest to the old Marian College<br />

site) to the Richmond Workingmen’s Club cricket section who will use<br />

this space for training and storage facilities.<br />

Shirley Tennis Club is the fourth largest tennis club in Canterbury<br />

and is now keen to focus on promoting the club and facilities, and<br />

increasing membership levels. The club has recently appointed a new<br />

head coach following the departure of the long-standing coach due to<br />

a family illness. Matthew Woolman, who has recently returned from<br />

a USA tennis scholarship, will take over the role and be in charge of<br />

Team Coaching, Hot Shots for new junior players and Cardio Tennis and<br />

Tennis Xpress programmes for adults.<br />

Shirley Tennis Club has been fortunate in having so many keen<br />

members who have helped in many ways to keep the club in such good<br />

condition. The new tennis season began in August and the club is keen<br />

for new and returning members to come along and enjoy the great<br />

game of tennis in our facilities. The family-oriented club has strong<br />

focus on junior members.<br />

Subscription levels remain very affordable, being cheaper than most<br />

clubs in Christchurch, with an active committee that ensures smooth<br />

operation and a friendly atmosphere. Shirley supports organised play<br />

and coaching through all twelve months of the year, whilst also playing<br />

host to a variety of competitive and social events, which collectively<br />

include all aspects of our membership in club life.<br />

We have several types of club memberships:<br />

Seniors: Saturdays 1:30pm–5pm<br />

Mid-week players: Tuesdays 9:30am–noon<br />

Twilight players: Wednesdays at 6:00pm (commencing 27 September <strong>2017</strong>)<br />

Juniors: Saturday mornings 8 & under: 8:30am 9–12 years: 9:30am 13 and over: 10:45am<br />

NEW MEMBERS WELCOME<br />

For more information check out the club website (shirleytennis.co.nz) or contact Wayne Turner on 03 385-3320.

Local plumbers offering<br />

free checks on clay pipes<br />

While it is now almost seven years since the<br />

Christchurch earthquakes, damage to underground<br />

pipes is still becoming apparent, says<br />

the team at Laser Plumbing Christchurch<br />

East, who are based in Ferrymead.<br />

As they point out, homeowners can<br />

be completely unaware that they have<br />

earthquake damage to their clay pipes.<br />

Properties built before the 1970s are<br />

most likely to have clay pipes, and<br />

cracks in the pipes allow tree roots to<br />

enter and block drains. The damage can<br />

take some time to become apparent<br />

but when it does, it is usually fairly<br />

major, and costly to repair.<br />

Specialists in drain-laying and plumbing,<br />

Laser Plumbing are currently offering a<br />

free check on pipes. This involves a quick look with a<br />

camera, and if any damage is found they will discuss<br />

this with the owner. Laser Plumbing are experts in<br />

dealing with EQC and know how<br />

to make the process easy. The next<br />

step is to provide<br />

a drainage survey<br />

report to EQC, who<br />

in most cases, will<br />

cover the cost of this<br />

as well as replacing<br />

the damaged pipes.<br />

There are some<br />

conditions, which<br />

Laser Plumbing will<br />

discuss with the<br />

homeowner.<br />

“We have done hundreds of surveys<br />

and have been installing a lot of<br />

replacement PVC pipes over recent<br />

years,” says Carol McCann, who owns the<br />

company with her husband Chris Dick.<br />

“We want to make it easy for people by<br />

offering the check at no cost, and we<br />

urge people to get their pipes checked<br />

sooner rather than later as we do not<br />

know how long EQC will cover repairs for<br />

home-owners. Having them replaced will<br />

avoid serious problems in the future. It’s<br />

all done with minimum fuss.”<br />

Located in Tussock Lane, Ferrymead,<br />

Laser Plumbing services customers right<br />

across the city. They are very proud of<br />

their team of qualified tradesmen, who<br />

carry out plumbing and drainage work<br />

with care and efficiency. They are the sort<br />

of guys that you would be happy to have<br />

working in and around your home, Carol says.<br />

Valley Road. Coming home from the noise<br />

and bustle of the city to this tranquillity<br />

will be your treat - so much so you may not<br />

wish to leave at all!<br />

Offering all the benefits of the rural<br />

lifestyle overlooking fields and grazing<br />

animals but without the hard work of a<br />

lifestyle block. The house is set on just over<br />

1800 sq m of land with a landscaped garden<br />

which will delight a gardener.<br />

With four bedrooms, two bathrooms and<br />

a large living room there is the opportunity<br />

for an extended family to coexist here with<br />

a quite separate wing or perhaps for those<br />

that like to have friends to stay you will find<br />

the layout of the home is perfect for this.<br />

The added benefit of three car garaging will<br />

keep your vehicles safe and secure. There<br />

is ample off-street parking as well for your<br />

visitors.<br />

Surrounded by the Port Hills with all<br />

the amenities these provide for those who<br />

like an active lifestyle and offering those<br />

who prefer perhaps to wine and dine an<br />

abundance of choice of winery and cafes.<br />

Don’t hesitate - view now, it is rare<br />

indeed to find this combination of rural life<br />

without the burden of a lifestyle block.<br />

Open Home Saturday 2nd December<br />

12:30pm - 1:00pm.<br />

See you at the open home or to arrange<br />

a private viewing of this property call<br />
