Kids go crazy

over crayfish

• By Sophie Cornish

Change for Guy Fawkes?

Survey suggests the annual

fireworks event celebrates

Matariki

SHIRLEY PRIMARY School pupils had mixed

reactions when they were given the opportunity to

get up close and personal with crayfish.

Teachers Chanelle Gleimius and Alana Cochrane

said some children were interested in looking and

identifying parts of the crayfish and others were a

little “freaked out.”

The visit from Theo’s Fisheries was part of

inquiry-based literacy lessons about ocean

creatures.

The year 1 and 2 pupils have learnt about sharks,

whales, crabs, seahorses and crayfish.

ENTERTAINING: Year 1 and 2 pupils at Shirley

Primary School had the opportunity to look at

crayfish up close as part of an inquiry-based

programme about ocean creatures.

Plan to

merge

Rawhiti,

Avondale

golf clubs

goes off

course

• By Sophie Cornish

PLANS TO shift the Rawhiti and

Avondale golf courses and merge

them in the red zone may be dead

in the water.

The public was asked by Regenerate

Christchurch to give feedback

on 10 possible combinations

of use for the red zone – including

merging Avondale and Rawhiti

golf clubs in Bexley.

That would leave the way for the

land at Rawhiti and Avondale to

be used for housing.

But, of the more than 1800

responses, less than a quarter

mentioned the housing idea.

Coastal-Burwood Ward city

councillor Glenn Livingstone

does not believe Regenerate will

go ahead with the land swap idea.

“I think they will listen to the

people . . . it’s too contentious and,

although housing is my portfolio

at council, community well-being

is something that belongs to all of

us,” Cr Livingstone said.

PEGASUS POST

THE LOOK and feel of New Brighton is in

the balance.

On page 1 today we reveal a survey over

use of the red zone. A key part is whether

Rawhiti Golf Club will move to Bexley and

open the way up for housing on its current site.

The Rawhiti course is publicly owned and is prime real estate

for a developer.

The plan would be to merge Rawhiti and Avondale Golf Club

at Bexley. But Avondale owns its own land and has new clubrooms.

Club members appear to be split on the move.

Interesting times.

Speaking of which we’ve refreshed our masthead and page 2,

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

MP joins fight to stop school site sale

Bid to keep hall

for community

use ramps up

• By Sophie Cornish

CHRISTCHURCH East MP

Poto Williams may have her

first challenge as a part of the

new Government – saving the

Central New Brighton School

site.

Pressure is now on Ms Williams

to halt the sale of the site,

which includes Roy

Stokes Hall. It could

be sold to private

developers.

The site is set to

Poto

Williams

go on the market

in February. Ms

Williams has been

in contact with both

the minister of education and

minister for land information

about the issue.

“I am hopeful that (Minister

of Education Chris (Hipkins)

will think about the concerns of

the community and realise how

well loved the Roy Stokes Hall is

within the area.”

The hall was built following

a large fundraising effort from

the community, which spanned

more than 15 years.

COMMUNITY EFFORT: Sylvia Smyth, Sue Davidson, Lisa

Wingfield and Chris Sarrow are among those pushing to save

Roy Stokes Hall on the old Central New Brighton School site.

Coastal-Burwood Ward city

councillor David East has another

idea to save the school.

“A concern is the fact that

the Ministry of Education have

underestimated the need for a

school on this side of town. They

amalgamated three of them and

Rawhiti is bursting at the seams

now and South Brighton is heading

that way.”

“Going forward, it may well be

that we need another school in

the not too distant future. Maybe

the site needs to be re-developed

Helping us,

Helps tHe

community

Drop off or buy

for a smaller school.”

Land Information New Zealand

is currently in the process

of organising the site’s sale on

behalf of the Ministry of Education.

However, Ms Williams said the

sale was not yet definite.

“There is a chance it could be

halted. The site is in a process

but I understand officials are

providing advice to the minister

(of education) at the moment,”

she said.

Sylvia Smyth wants Ms Williams

to put pressure on to save the

site. “We are hoping she will

help move it forward and she has

been helping already. She has

already written to the minister

(for land information).”

“We are also writing letters to

the minister, so it’s all a full community

effort,” she said.

Ms Williams said there was

a wider issue regarding vacant

school sites on the east.

“We know how tragic it was

having the schools closed in the

first place – we can see the absolute

value of those schools turned

into community hubs. I hope

that that provides enough reason

to show, at least in the shortterm,

that it’s the best outcome

for the community.”

Currently there are demolition

plans for the old Aranui High

School site as well.

The Coastal-Burwood Community

Board has agreed to

write to the Ministry of Education

to request a meeting to

potentially halt the demolition,

so community groups can use

the buildings.

East moves to stop possible

closure of New Brighton bank

• By Sophie Cornish and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

COASTAL-Burwood Ward

city councillor David East has

stepped in to try and stop the

possible closure of Westpac’s

New Brighton branch.

Cr East has spoken to

Development Christchurch Ltd

to see if the city council-owned

company can do anything to halt

or stop the proposed closure.

DCL is responsible for

rejuvenating New Brighton.

“We are talking with Westpac

to see if we can get this decision

put off for a while longer, until

such time when we can see if

the hot salt water pools and the

business re-invigoration will

impact on the business sector on

this side of town,” said Cr East.

New Brighton is one of three

Westpac branches on the

chopping block, along with

Lincoln and Sydenham.

Westpac says internet and

mobile phone banking, as well

as the changing population

because of the earthquakes, are

the reasons behind the planned

closures.

“Our customers are

increasingly using technology

for their banking needs, which

is resulting in fewer branch

transactions,” said Westpac

spokeswoman Heather Shiels.

Ms Shiels said online

transactions had increased by

66 per cent in five years, while

customers using mobile-only

devices had increased from 24 to

39 per cent in the past two years.

The earthquakes had also

played a role, she said.

“Since the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes the region has

experienced significant shifts

in population, which have

impacted where people are

living, working and banking.”

First Union, which represents

bank staff, said it was “odd” for

the earthquakes to be used as

a reason for a branch to close,

particularly in Lincoln.

“The stats quite clearly

demonstrate the population

is growing . . . we have been

puzzled by it,” First Union

southern region secretary Paul

Watson said.

Fireworks display could be changed

• By Sophie Cornish

MAJOR CHANGES could be in

store for New Brighton’s annual

Guy Fawkes fireworks event.

Last week the city council

released a survey asking for

feedback about the event.

Questions included whether

the event should be moved to the

middle of the year to celebrate

Matariki (Maori new year),

moved to the nearest weekend to

November 5 and/or moved out of

New Brighton.

City councillor Sara

Templeton backs the Matariki

idea.

“Changing it to a New Zealand

celebration from an irrelevant

400-year-old English one would

be a great move and hosting it in

winter at 6.30pm would be much

more inclusive of the younger

members of our community,” Cr

Templeton said in a Facebook

post.

Coastal-Burwood Ward city

councillor Glenn Livingstone

wants something different all

together.

“I would like to build the event

around celebrating our diversity

as a city. We have that diversity

in the Coastal-Burwood area

with all the different nationalities

and cultures.”

Cr Livingstone would like to

see the fireworks display have

a Parihaka theme built around

it, since the anniversary is

celebrated on the same day as

Guy Fawkes.

“I’m sure we can build in

a theme around celebrating

Parihaka on the same day. I don’t

want it shifted into the middle

of the year . . . I think as a nation

it is important that we look at

Parihaka,” he said.

Parihaka symbolises the

peaceful resistance to confiscated

Maori land following the

invasion of 1600 Government

troops on the western Taranaki

settlement in 1881.

City council manager of events

and arts Karena Finnie said

the survey was part of several

completed every year by the

events and arts team on a range

of events to assist with future

development.

The primary issue with the

event being in New Brighton is

traffic management.

Plan to merge golf courses hits rough

•From page 1

“And I can’t see the point in

forcing the community down

a path they don’t want to go,”

he said.

Coastal-Burwood

Community Board

chairwoman Kim Money

agreed: “Our community

have made it quite clear that

they don’t want it (Rawhiti

golf course) to be used for

residential housing, but that

doesn’t mean there aren’t other

alternatives.”

The survey showed there

was little support for largescale

development. However,

there was some support for

innovative and adaptable

housing.

Said Regenerate

Christchurch chief

executive Ivan Iafeta:

“The proposed landswap

with Avondale

and Rawhiti golf

courses was generally

not supported.

“A number of people

who responded used

this engagement to show their

support for specific projects.

As we collate the feedback,

some common themes are

emerging.’’

Ivan Iafeta

But he would not rule out the

land swap idea as a possibility.

“A range of factors will

be considered in the

decision-making

process, including public

feedback,” said Mr Iafeta.

However, the merger

and switch to Bexley

could be decided by the

golf clubs.

Said Rawhiti vicepresident

Leon Zilinskas:

“We are not committing

ourselves to anything until a

lot further into the process.

Without details there’s no

way we can make a decision

on behalf of our members .

. . from what I am hearing

from the community, it seems

unlikely to happen.”

Avondale president Dave

Buchanan said the club was

divided over the idea, but he

has major concerns about it.

“Our golf course is owned

debt free by the club and we

also have just about completed

the rebuild of our new

clubrooms. Our club would

be foolish to put our asset at

risk, unless the proposal put

forward is a better option than

we already have and, at this

point in time, it is not.”

Principal’s Report

Warm greetings to

the Linwood College

community. Kia ora

koutou. Talofa lava.

Kia orana. Malo e

lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa

atu. Namaste.

Kumusta.

It is with pleasure

that I am able to

report to our community that Linwood College

has had a most positive year.

It has been a year of significant thinking and

planning as we listen to our community’s

input regarding how we should re-develop

with our whole-school rebuild. Linwood

College is clear-eyed about the forms of

education that work for our students and we

have this bedrock of understanding through

our partnership with our community.

Our community views education as

the wellbeing of the whole person. All

developmentally positive experiences enrich

our students’ understanding of whom they

are and broaden their outlook. They nurture

students’ classroom focus by contextualising

their learning and sowing the seeds of positive

ambition.

Sports Awards Night

Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed

curriculum’. This means the school, students

and families knowing:

1. Students’ learning and skills as they come

into LC from our partner primary schools

and building on these successes.

2. How the learning at LC connects to what

the students want to do when they leave

school. “What are my post-school pathways

and how does LC help me to achieve these

pathways?”

In this way learning is meaningful to the

individual and strengths-based. At Linwood

College the individual matters.

Finally, the Education Review Office reviewed

Linwood College in the second half of Term 3.

The confirmed report is now public and I am

delighted to say that the school is back on

the three year return cycle. It is a testament

to everyone’s collective vision and positive

work for our school: Board of Trustees,

staff, students, whanau, partner schools and

community.

Nga mihi nui and best wishes for the festive

season and summer holiday.

Waitaha Haka Competition

Over Labour Weekend, Kimihia Te Matauranga Kapa Haka Group competed at the Waitaha

Secondary Schools’ Haka Competition at the Aurora Centre. The group was made up of a

combination of students from Linwood College, Christchurch Girls’ High School and three

schools from Te Tai Poutini (West Coast), those being Westland College, Greymouth High

School and Buller High School.

The competition was of a very high standard this year with ten groups competing for a spot at

the National Haka Competition in 2018.

Kimihia gained placings in the following

categories:

1st place in Poi

2nd place in Moteatea/ Traditional Chant

2nd place in Whakawatea/ Exit Song

2nd equal Te Whakahua o te Reo/ Language

with Te Pa o Rakaihautu

3rd place in Haka

3rd place in Waiata-a-ringa/ Action Song

3rd place in Waiata Tira/ Choral

3rd place for Hamiora Te Rupe/ Male Leader

Kimihia was placed 3rd overall in the competition. We are also very proud of Dayton Rapana-

Pham who was placed 2nd for his Whaikorero/Traditional Speech.

We would like to acknowledge our Kaitataki/Leaders of the group, Mairieka Prentice and

Hamiroa Te Rupe, for all their hard work in leading the group.

Duke of Edinburgh – Silver Expedition

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

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

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

Richard Edmundson (Principal) and Finlay Laird (Linwood College Board of Trustees member),

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

and ARA Institute of Canterbury in attendance.

We would like to thank the Linwood College community and Linwood College Board of Trustees

for their continuous support as we continue to pursue sporting excellence.

Congratulations to all of our award winners for 2017.

Top awards were presented to the following accomplished students:

The outdoor Duke of Edinburgh

experience has helped us to

learn new things about life and

also about ourselves. Although

it pushed us to our mental

and physical limits, it was the

best experience ever! We have

learnt to really be grateful for

the small things in life!

I wish to acknowledge all of our 2018

Senior Award recipients; I am so proud

of you and your achievements to

self, whanau, and school. Among the

assembly of award winners are students

who have always known they would

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

it university or Polytech. Beside those students are some who a few years ago

could not have imagined completing Year 13, and are leaving Mairehau High

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

learners who have found pleasure in their learning. others have had to struggle

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

nurtured by the Mairehau High School environment. I wish you all the very best.

So, I congratulate all students on your achievements, and I also congratulate

your parents, family and your teachers and all who have supported you during

your years of school. You are our inspiration.

“You are one, yet you are only one

You cannot do everything, but you can do something

Having hope, having aspirations, and always trying to improve

I trust what you can do, you will do.”

I also take this opportunity to wish all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New

The Avon Shirley Masonic Lodge Awards

The Avon Shirley Masonic Lodge good Citizenship Award – recognises service to

the school. These awards are kindly donated by The Avon Shirley Masonic Lodge.

To be selected for the Citizenship award, a student will display qualities which

include tolerance, kindness and tact in relating to others. good Citizenship is

reflected in a desire to help others, to put others first, and to serve others selflessly

without expected reward.

In the spirit of this award, the recipients have nominated an organisation which

will receive a significant donation on their behalf. Together, our two students

have decided that the generous gift of $500 from the lodge will go to KIDSCAN

CHArITY.

We are extremely pleased to introduce to you, SHILAH NorMAN. Shilah is

described by our school staff as a caring, kind, honest and understanding young

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

and honest. Shilah demonstrates maturity and intelligence in her relationships

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

someone who thinks outside the ‘square’ and beyond the Pegasus Bay coastline to

consider and reflect wisely on global issues and solutions.

Shilah’s strength in leadership has been demonstrated over the years as she has

involved herself in both the Student Council as co-chairperson, and as a member

of the Student Executive. Shilah will gladly and willingly take on leadership roles

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

career intentions are recorded as youth work, counselling or therapy work.

our second recipient for the Citizenship Award is BENJAMIN LoWE. Benjamin

is described by staff as diligent, self-motivated and self-disciplined. He is a

determined individual with a strong work ethic. Ben demonstrates respect,

warmth, maturity and intelligence, as well as a cheerful and positive attitude.

This year Benjamin has been developing his leadership skills, first at a MHErC

Communications Skills course, followed by participation in the city-wide World

Vision Leadership Conference. He also supported the annual rSA red Poppy

Day fundraising appeal. Benjamin has served in the Senior Student Executive

(Community and Peer Support) and was a highly reliable and relatable Peer

Support Leader. He recently demonstrated leadership in kapahaka performance

and was one of only two student presenters at our annual Colours Award

ceremony recently.

over the years, Benjamin has willingly represented our school with pride. We are

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

warmly remembered for his significant service to our community.

Christmas

Creative wrapping

adds intrigue to gifts

Most of the malls offer a free gift-wrapping service, which

is a great help at this busy time, but for those who prefer

to wrap their own here are a few ideas to make gifts look

unique and exciting.

The first tip to make the job easier and

the wrapping look more professional is to

do the task on a flat surface – a table or a

hard floor.

Recycling has become an important

aspect of modern-day life, and that’s easy

to do with gift-wrapping. For example,

those brown paper bags you have put

aside are ideal, especially for odd-shaped

gifts. To give them a Christmassy look,

you could glue on those left-over pieces

of wrapping paper from last year that are

too small to use, and add a candy cane or

chocolate with the gift tag.

Another quirky idea is to wrap your gifts

in fabric. You could cut up a garment you

no longer wear, or look out those left over

pieces from curtains or clothing you have

made. Tie them up with fabric ribbon to

complete the look.

in Pegasus Post

Using newspaper or cardboard boxes as

wrapping is another recycling idea, and

you could add a festive look by tying

them with Christmas ribbon.

For long-shaped gifts, why not wrap them

to look like a Christmas cracker. Place a

tube of cardboard around the item, then

put it inside a sheet of wrapping paper,

secure it with tape then scrunch up the

ends like a cracker and tie them off with

coloured ribbon.

Kitchen foil is another wrapping option.

Being silver and shiny it already has a

festive look, which you could enhance

with bright-coloured ribbon.

Make a container, such as a jar, tin or

tray one part of the gift. Complete it with

chocolates, nuts or biscuits and wrap the

gift in clear cellophane tied with brightcoloured

ribbon.

Your Local Views

Readers respond to last

week’s story about the

Central New Brighton

School site potentially

going on the market to

private investors

Janice Belgrave – Similar

issue with the Aranui School

site on Breezes Rd. It is about

to be demolished, and the is a

magnificent community hall on

site that needs to be saved. Community

groups are trying to save

it, but why the heck should they

have to go to so much trouble?

It should never be considered

to be bulldozed, but these decisions

were made by the previous

Government and are difficult to

turn over. So frustrating when

perfectly good buildings are lost

for no reason.

Leah Young – I always knew

this was the reason Central New

Brighton School closed. The

Government can get more money

by selling the land than having a

school on the site.

Carolyn Stirling – The

Government could turn these

classrooms into senior studio

apartments. My friend lives in a

converted school in the United

States.

Kimberley Borell – And

yet my grandsons had to move

schools three times because of

this school closing.

Helen Young – Leave this

hall alone. As a community

person I’d like to see this stay

in the community and not be

sold off to developers. As it is,

they took away the pool from

the community which they

had no right to do as this was a

community asset as well. Our

community needs to keep this

as they closed the school which

did not need to be done as they

did not loose as many students as

they clamed they did. The South

New Brighton School should

have been closed as they lost a

lot more students from South

New Brighton, Southshore and

Bexley as that was where most

of their students moved from.

Stop taking away things from the

New Brighton area, we have had

enough of this happening to us.

Marie Graham – Should

definitely keep the hall . . . the

Roy Stokes New Brighton Community

Hall.

A COMBINATION of

community groups are helping

low decile pupils get the school

camp experience.

Year 5 and 6 pupils at Linwood

North School recently went on

camp to Living Springs with 50

per cent of their fees paid for.

The Aorangi Sponsorship

Programme coupled with Mitre

10 and Christchurch Girls’ High

School’s Interact group raised

funds to get the pupils to the

camp.

The sponsorship programme

was set up last year and aims to

get underprivileged children an

outdoor education experience.

Linwood North School principal

Sandra Smith said it’s not

common for her pupils to go to

camp and they are only able to if

community funding is available.

“The children that went had

an amazing time. The thing that

stood out for the teachers was

that the children who usually

find school challenging, really

shone and blossomed at camp

and took on the challenges,” said

Ms Smith.

Living Springs CEO Denis

Aldridge said that 50 per cent of

schools going to the camp are

decile 9 and 10.

Schools that are decile 1,2,3

and 4 combined only make up 16

per cent.

“That’s the very schools

who need to be here,” said Mr

Aldridge.

Some “business clusters” are

now sticking with the schools

long term and sponsoring camps

every year, said Mr Aldridge.

Last year, six low decile schools

were able to attend the camp

from community sponsorship.

The programme is aiming for

eight schools next year.

The camps are based on

outdoor adventure learning

programmes which include low

ropes courses, tree climbing,

farm visits and biking.

“It gets them out of their

comfort zone, gets them working

together and gets them in a

wholesome green environment,”

said Mr Aldridge.

Southern Institute of Technology (SIT)

offers a multitude of courses for students

looking to begin a qualification and

career, in the industry of their choice.

Available areas of study at the

Christchurch campus include, Automotive

and Road Transport, Social Services

and Mental Health, Construction,

Electrotechnology, Hairdressing, Project

Management, Sport, Exercise and

Personal Training.

If you are looking at getting into the

social services sector or are already

working in this area and looking for an

entry level qualification designed for

those wanting a career supporting the

health and wellbeing of people, family

and/or whanau and the wider community,

SIT have a new programme delivered

from Christchurch campus that will suit

you.

The New Zealand Certificate in Health

and Wellbeing (Social and Community

Services) (Level 4) with strand in Mental

Health and Addiction Support, is a yearlong,

full-time course beginning February

2018 (subject to accreditation and

approval).

This course aims at providing

organisations within the health and

wellbeing sectors with graduates who

have the skills, knowledge and behaviours

required to work alongside people,

family and/or whanau accessing social

and community services, under broad

guidance. Papers studied include ethical

practice and professionalism, te tiriti

o waitangi and bi-cultural practice,

professional practice, reflective practice,

New Zealand society, social sciences, and

mental health and addiction.

This qualification is not associated

with professional registration or a clinical

scope of practice, but designed for

students to get a foot in the door of the

industry.

BEFORE

AFTER

Summer is coming! That means busy times at the Shirley Tennis Club

as its season of competition and social tennis gets underway. The club

has new post-quake facilities in the beautiful surroundings of Richmond

Park and is keen to welcome new members, whether new to the sport

or experienced tennis players. The club offers coaching opportunities,

great new facilities and chances to enjoy tennis in a local, friendly,

family-oriented environment.

The club’s address is 102 Woodchester Ave. In these days of roadworks

and detours, the best vehicle access is to turn into Medway St

from North Parade and then turn left into Woodchester Ave; plenty of

carparking is available. Contact phone number is 03 385 9531.

The Shirley Tennis Club has been a part of the sporting scene in

Richmond since 1925. The devastating earthquakes in 2011 saw

damage to all nine courts and the clubrooms; worse than any other

tennis club in Christchurch. This damage essentially took the club out

of action for a summer season, but the club has bounced back with the

full replacement of all courts and the clubrooms by 2017.

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

that has taken place over the past six years. This investment has largely

been funded through grants from charitable trusts and club fundraising,

with a huge amount of voluntary effort from members at numerous

working bees.

The end result is a fantastic 9-court facility (including four courts that

are floodlit) combined with brand-new clubrooms, making a collective

package that is compelling for the eastern Christchurch tennis scene.

The club has constructed courts on the old Shirley Bowling Club site,

and has given its two back courts (closest to the old Marian College

site) to the Richmond Workingmen’s Club cricket section who will use

this space for training and storage facilities.

Shirley Tennis Club is the fourth largest tennis club in Canterbury

and is now keen to focus on promoting the club and facilities, and

increasing membership levels. The club has recently appointed a new

head coach following the departure of the long-standing coach due to

a family illness. Matthew Woolman, who has recently returned from

a USA tennis scholarship, will take over the role and be in charge of

Team Coaching, Hot Shots for new junior players and Cardio Tennis and

Tennis Xpress programmes for adults.

Shirley Tennis Club has been fortunate in having so many keen

members who have helped in many ways to keep the club in such good

condition. The new tennis season began in August and the club is keen

for new and returning members to come along and enjoy the great

game of tennis in our facilities. The family-oriented club has strong

focus on junior members.

Subscription levels remain very affordable, being cheaper than most

clubs in Christchurch, with an active committee that ensures smooth

operation and a friendly atmosphere. Shirley supports organised play

and coaching through all twelve months of the year, whilst also playing

host to a variety of competitive and social events, which collectively

include all aspects of our membership in club life.

We have several types of club memberships:

Seniors: Saturdays 1:30pm–5pm

Mid-week players: Tuesdays 9:30am–noon

Twilight players: Wednesdays at 6:00pm (commencing 27 September 2017)

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

NEW MEMBERS WELCOME

Local plumbers offering

free checks on clay pipes

While it is now almost seven years since the

Christchurch earthquakes, damage to underground

pipes is still becoming apparent, says

the team at Laser Plumbing Christchurch

East, who are based in Ferrymead.

As they point out, homeowners can

be completely unaware that they have

earthquake damage to their clay pipes.

Properties built before the 1970s are

most likely to have clay pipes, and

cracks in the pipes allow tree roots to

enter and block drains. The damage can

take some time to become apparent

but when it does, it is usually fairly

major, and costly to repair.

Specialists in drain-laying and plumbing,

Laser Plumbing are currently offering a

free check on pipes. This involves a quick look with a

camera, and if any damage is found they will discuss

this with the owner. Laser Plumbing are experts in

dealing with EQC and know how

to make the process easy. The next

step is to provide

a drainage survey

report to EQC, who

in most cases, will

cover the cost of this

as well as replacing

the damaged pipes.

There are some

conditions, which

Laser Plumbing will

discuss with the

homeowner.

“We have done hundreds of surveys

and have been installing a lot of

replacement PVC pipes over recent

years,” says Carol McCann, who owns the

company with her husband Chris Dick.

“We want to make it easy for people by

offering the check at no cost, and we

urge people to get their pipes checked

sooner rather than later as we do not

know how long EQC will cover repairs for

home-owners. Having them replaced will

avoid serious problems in the future. It’s

all done with minimum fuss.”

Located in Tussock Lane, Ferrymead,

Laser Plumbing services customers right

across the city. They are very proud of

their team of qualified tradesmen, who

carry out plumbing and drainage work

with care and efficiency. They are the sort

of guys that you would be happy to have

working in and around your home, Carol says.

To make an appointment for your free pipe check,

phone them today on 376 5322.

REAL ESTATE

Paradise found ...

48 Early Valley Road, Tai Tapu

Price: $995,000

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 1 office/study | 3 car-garage | 3 off-street parks | Property ID: BE192870

... this special property is only fifteen

minutes from the city in the blue-chip area

of Lansdowne Valley, just off the Old Tai

Tapu Road, in an idyllic location on Early

Valley Road. Coming home from the noise

and bustle of the city to this tranquillity

will be your treat - so much so you may not

wish to leave at all!

Offering all the benefits of the rural

lifestyle overlooking fields and grazing

animals but without the hard work of a

lifestyle block. The house is set on just over

1800 sq m of land with a landscaped garden

which will delight a gardener.

With four bedrooms, two bathrooms and

a large living room there is the opportunity

for an extended family to coexist here with

a quite separate wing or perhaps for those

that like to have friends to stay you will find

the layout of the home is perfect for this.

The added benefit of three car garaging will

keep your vehicles safe and secure. There

is ample off-street parking as well for your

visitors.

Surrounded by the Port Hills with all

the amenities these provide for those who

like an active lifestyle and offering those

who prefer perhaps to wine and dine an

abundance of choice of winery and cafes.

Don’t hesitate - view now, it is rare

indeed to find this combination of rural life

without the burden of a lifestyle block.

Open Home Saturday 2nd December

12:30pm - 1:00pm.

See you at the open home or to arrange

a private viewing of this property call

Debbie Pettigrew on 027 777 0411 or
