Council

may face

with legal

action

if homes

flooded

• By Sophie Cornish

THE CITY council has been

threatened with legal action if

homes in South New Brighton are

damaged in a flood.

The South New Brighton

Residents’ Association has issued

a formal notice of liability to the

city council, claiming it has failed

to install proper flood protection

north of Bridge St and south of

Owles Tce.

The notice means if a flooding

event does occur, the association

could take the city council to court

and may find it liable for damages.

A city council spokeswoman said

it does not accept it would be liable

if the area is flooded.

“The council will not be making

any changes to its current process

as a result of the notice of liability.

The council considers its recent

decisions provide a satisfactory

way forward for addressing current

flooding issues,” she said.

But association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson believes the city council

could be held liable under the

Land Drainage Act and Soil, Conservation

and Rivers Control Act.

from the editor’s desk

CHRISTMAS MIGHT be right on the

radar but there’s another big event looming

too – the City2Surf.

Yep, it’s only a handful of months away

(see page 4) so it’s time to start lacing up

those running shoes and pounding the

pavement or local park to get in some sort of shape.

The great thing about the City2Surf – and this hasn’t changed

over the decades – is that anyone regardless of shape or fitness

level can take part.

A face that will appear on the marketing of City2Surf this

year is Jesel Royokada, a Fijian pastor.

And remember it’s a family event: It’s free for children 10 and

under to participate.

Fire rages, homes at risk

East pushes for 50m QE II pool

In Brief

• By Sophie Cornish

COASTAL-BURWOOD Ward

city councillor David East is

pushing for the community to

“have a conversation” about the

possibility of a 50m pool at the

new QE II.

The call comes after Minister

for Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Megan Woods

announced a U-turn on the

proposed Metro Sports Facility,

axing the current

contractors

Leighs Cockram

Joint Venture.

Dr Woods

announced there

were ‘considerable

issues’ with

the plans for the

David East

multi-million dollar complex,

including a $75 million budget

blowout, making the proposed

costs more than $321 million.

Dr Woods’ spokesman said

right now she is focusing on

investigating options for the

central city.

“This includes the possibility

of combining the Metro Sports

Facility and the Multi-Use Arena

. . . however, we are meeting with

the sports codes this week and

are keen to listen to any ideas

they have.”

The facility is planned to

include a 10-lane 50m swimming

pool, separate diving pool area,

five hydroslides, group fitness

rooms, high performance sports

centre, a cafe, childcare facility

and indoor courts with space for

nine netball courts.

Cr East questions whether a

complex that size is needed in

the city.

“Perhaps it is timely to

consider building the 50m pool

at QE II . . . the proposed site for

metro sports is worse land than

QE II and it would seem a quick

fix to build the 50m pool at QE

II where it was for many years

and was well accepted by the

city,” said Cr East in a post on

Facebook.

He claims the cost of adding

a 50m pool to QE II would be

‘vastly less’ than a new complex

and would leave an indoor sports

complex for the city to cater

for other sport such as netball,

which could be built at a lesser

cost. Cr East believes the

project could easily be started

within a year as “a large part

of the infrastructure is already

there.”

“When we designed and

commissioned the build we’ve

got now, one of the key aspects of

that design was that if we needed

to add to it in any fashion, ie

a 50m pool, it could be done

relatively easily.”

Cr East said the idea will have

community backing.

GRANT FOR SURF CLUB

North Beach Surf Life Saving

Club has received a $2000 grant.

The club will use the funds to

purchase CPR training manikins

to help teach juniors and

lifeguards CPR. The grant was

the surf club had a specialist

IRB trailer stolen in a string of

thefts targeting a Surf Life Saving

New Zealand compound in New

Brighton.

Getting into the spirit of

• By Andrew King

JESEL ROYOKADA embodies

everything that is the Star Media

City2Surf.

Last year he was photographed

leaping into the air after crossing

the line capturing the spirit of the

event.

Now, the Christchurch Fijian

Seventh-Day Adventist Church

pastor has asked his congregation

of about 80 to get involved in the

event as a way to connect with

other cultures.

“We come from the islands and

sometimes we do things in our

own island groups but it is good

to get involved with the rest of

the community,” he said.

The 31-year-old encouraged

about 25 of his parishioners to

get involved in the event last year

“It was the first time our

church has got involved with

something like this,” he said.

He said they were told

about the event by Healthy

Families Christchurch, part

of a nationwide Government

initiative ​aimed at helping New

Zealanders live healthy, active

lives.

“I would like to see all 80 of

them out there, and their friends

and families. We can even have

kids in prams at the event,” he

said.

He said they will start to train

soon for the event, which will be

held on March 18.

The event is split into two

sections – 6km and 14km.

The Star Media City2Surf with

Les Mills 14km event starts in

Centennial Park, Spreydon, at

9am.

The Sport Canterbury 6km

event starts at 10am in Hansen

Park, Opawa.

Both finish at the Ferrymead

playing fields. There will be

after-event entertainment

with live music, food and free

children’s entertainment in the

finish area.

Earlybird entries open online

on December 1 and cost $20.

They can be purchased from

Standard entry from January 1

will cost $25 online or tickets can

From school rugby to world stage

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Andrew King

THREE international centres,

one school: This is the story of

the 2004 Shirley Boys’ High first

XV.

Phil Burleigh (Scotland),

Ryan Crotty (All Blacks) and

Kieron Fonotia (Manu Samoa)

are all plying their trade on the

international scene.

However, they were all a part

of the 2004 Shirley Boys’ High

first XV.

They also played through the

grades at New Brighton.

But at Shirley Boys’ High,

they only played seven games

between them in the midfield –

all in the 2004 season.

Burleigh spent most of his

time in 2004 as the first choice

halfback, Crotty ran the backline

at No 10 before finishing the

last four games of the season

at second-five. Fonotia split his

time between right wing and

fullback.

They now all don the No 13

jersey.

Shirley assistant coach in 2004,

Mike Skinner, said they were

all good boys who spent a lot of

time on the back field “sunning

themselves”.

He said Crotty could win

YOUNG STARS: Phil Burleigh (front row fourth from left), Ryan Crotty (third row far right), Kieron

Shirley first XV in 2004.

games when the rest of the side

wasn’t playing well, Burleigh

was the glue who didn’t make

a mistake, and Fonatia was a

natural sportsman who had a

massive step.

“They had a good year, which

built into a very good year for

2005 where we almost went all

the way,” he said.

Crotty, known back then as

Goofy, has made the centre

position his own in the All

Blacks while Fonotia, Fonzy,

made his debut against the

men in black earlier in the year.

Fonotia has played seven tests for

Manu Samoa since then.

Burleigh, known as Burls to

his Shirley teammates, played his

first game for Scotland against

Australia last month in what

was a record-setting eight-try

demolition in front of more than

67,000 at Murrayfield.

There was genuine excitement

from Burleigh’s father, Wayne,

and Crotty’s father, Steve, who

used to flat together on Marine

Pde, New Brighton, when there

was a possibility Burleigh

could have made his debut

against Crotty and the All

Blacks.

However, Burleigh was not

selected for the test.

Setaimata Sa was the No 8 in

the Shirley team in 2004.

He has played both union and

league and was part of the 2008

World Cup-winning Kiwis

side. He’s also played five league

tests for Samoa and one for the

union side.

He now plays league for the

Mackay Cutters in Queensland.

Fonotia has been playing for

Welsh side, Ospreys, one of four

professional union teams in the

country which compete in the

Pro14 and the European Rugby

Champions Cup.

In 2018, Fonotia will move to

Scarlets, another Welsh club.

Burleigh joined Edinburgh

Rugby on a two-year deal in

2014 from the Highlanders and

extended his contract in 2016 for

another two years.

His time playing in Scotland

made him eligible for selection

in the national side.

However, he also has Scottish

heritage with his greatgrandmother

born in Aberdeen.

display article

Pamela Neil – No more

fireworks until the whole

thing can be done in a more

professional way. Take a lesson

from Sydney and Brisbane.

Tamsin Carter – Guy Fawkes

fireworks display should be held

on Guy Fawkes Day. It’s the backyard

fireworks that should go. Although

the traffic is bad getting

in and out of New Brighton, the

view for the show on the pier is

great . . . you can also watch from

up on the hills.

Tanya Didham – Would

prefer to see New Brighton

fireworks in winter, maybe to

celebrate mid-winter/Matariki!

Guy Fawkes is just a weird thing

to celebrate anyway, and it’s a bit

silly having to wait so long for it

to get dark.

Ruben Witteman – No.

The pier is cool, you can sit

on the beach miles away and

see them clearly. Better than

everyone crammed into Hagley

Park.

Nic Davies – Yes, move it into

the park, New Brighton is too

hard to get in and out of.

Karen Beaumont – Why

not have two, on both side of

town at the same time. Split the

problems.

Madeleine Hurricks – Matariki

time please . . . less fire risk,

more dark hours and so Kiwi.

Aubrey Walker – Majority

rules, keep Guy Fawkes in New

Brighton.

Maryanne Hay – Don’t

change it, it is set on November

5 for a reason people need to get

over themselves. It’s once a year,

your kids ain’t going to die from

staying up late one night in the

year and don’t change it from

New Brighton, we get forgotten

here and I would hate for them to

take this away from us locals too.

Jo Zuydendorp – If it ain’t

broke, don’t fix it.

Hamish Middleton – Weekend

before daylight saving.

Could do somewhere like Riccarton

or Addington Racecourse

where there is heaps of parking,

heaps of seating and lots of access.

Could have music/bands

with existing set up.

Sylvia Oliver – How about it

just stops. Try New Year instead.

Peter Warren – Leave it at

New Brighton . . . we don’t need

to set fire to any other part of the

city . . . safer over water. It would

be an advantage to hold it before

daylight saving . . . winter hours

would be good but weather/temperatures

less predictable. And

get rid of firework sales.

Anne Marchant – Yes, fireworks

should be at mid-winter.

Earlier, darker, more fun. It’s the

right time of year. Who cares

about this guy, Fawkes? It would

be nice to borrow the name Matariki,

if local Maori agree. But

let’s have the winter fireworks

anyway. Traffic problems can be

solved – treat it as a rehearsal for

emergency evacuation, and direct

some traffic over the Bridge

St bridge.

Philip Humphreys – It’s

the one time of the year New

Brighton gets to put itself on

show why take that’s away from

the east side.

Tania Watkins – European

history is as much a part of New

Zealand history now as Maori

history. Or the history of any

other culture living here. When

are we going to celebrate being a

multi-cultural community?

Readers respond to the

merger plan for the Rawhiti

and Avondale golf clubs

which has gone off course

Jo Zervos – These golf

courses should not have been included

in Regenerate’s planning

options at all, they are not part of

the red zone.

Rachel Turner – Maybe that

was the idea – for the council to

portray that they are “listening

to the people”, when it was never

going to happen in the first place.

Tanya Didham – Was a

completely weird last minute addition.

I certainly hope it is dead

in the water.

Pamela Neil – There are

more important issues in the city

than worrying about where to

relocate a golf course.

Richard Rowe – We all

hope the Government will act on

what the majority tell them they

want or don’t want. Especially

when they ask for it. Does anyone

believe Regenerate Christchurch

will do that?

Karen Whila - Good it was a

silly idea for the red zone.

Stephen Graham – Rawhiti

should be left as it is, a park/reserve/golf

course (and, of course,

cricket, culture at its highest).

Pond to be

drained to

control midges

WATER IS being drained from

one of the oxidation ponds in

Bromley as part of an ongoing

programme to reduce midge

numbers in the area.

The city council has traditionally

relied on chemical dosing

alone to keep their numbers

down. The fish-free shallow, warm

waters of the oxidation ponds are

the perfect breeding ground for

midges.

“A critical step in the life cycle

of the midge is spent as larvae in

the sediment at the bottom of the

ponds,’’ said city council water

and wastwater operations manager

Adam Twose.

“Emptying the pond and

exposing the sediment to the

sun, dries the sediment out

and removes the moisture the

larvae need to survive, effectively

sterilising the pond of midges,’’

said Mr Twose.

The technique is being trialled

in one pond initially.

“We will be monitoring the

situation closely as there is a possibility

that odours and dust could

be generated as the pond bottom

dries out. However, if the trial

is as successful as we hope and

doesn’t have too many unexpected

side effects, we could sunbake the

other ponds in the future.’’

Principal retires on high note

• By Sophie Cornish

SOUTH NEW Brighton School’s

principal will retire after 10 years

at the helm.

John Bockett will finish up at

the end of the year.

He will be replaced by Sue

Walls, who is principal at Ramarama

School, near the Bombay

Hills south of Auckland.

The father of three begun at

the school in 2007 and was principal

during the earthquakes and

school merger process.

Board of trustees chairman

John Pearson said Mr Bockett

‘shepherded’ the school through

these times.

“(He) leaves our school with a

strong curriculum, a stable staff

and many fond memories for

students, staff and families.”

Mr Pearson said for some staff

and students, he is the only principal

they have worked with.

“Parting will be tough . . .

John has also started us on the

path of rebuilding, both the

physical school and restoring the

confidence of the community.

Our new principal is tasked with

continuing that rebuilding and

leading the school to the next

stage of development,” said Mr

Pearson.

Mr Bockett’s retirement plans

include rest and relaxation,

spending time with grandchildren

and travels in his caravan

and overseas.

He said the biggest low in his

10 years was following the earthquake,

hearing that the school

may be considered for a merger,

or that it may no longer exist.

An equally high point, however,

was when this didn’t happen,

and the school managed to

change the view of the Minster of

Education.

“We stayed our own identity

. . . that was a pretty massive day

when we heard that,” he said.

Mr Bockett is also proud

of achieving his goal of being

one of the first schools on east

Christchurch to reopen after the

PEGASUS POST

earthquake.

“I am very sad about leaving,

I will certainly miss the place. It

will be very strange waking up

in the morning and not having

to get ready for work,” said Mr

Bockett.

“The kids keep me young too,

I will have to look to my grandkids

to help with that now.”

festive gift ideas

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making

up the Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you

haven’t already done so.

Finding those special gifts and stocking

Every woman likes to receive bodypampering

gifts, and there is a huge

exciting new releases to the well-known

Lingerie, jewellery, fashion accessories,

Christmas

Creative wrapping

adds intrigue to gifts

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

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.

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.

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as

many as 50% of older adults & as many

as 25% of younger adults are deficient

in vitamin B12. Scientists at Rush

University Medical Center found those

most deficient in vitamin B12 to have the

smallest brain mass & the lowest scores

on tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration & brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains & score

higher on cognitive tests than those with

lower levels. Yet another recent landmark

study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain

shrinkage & declining cognitive function.

B12 is essential for energy production, cell

health, regulation of mood & sleep cycles,

nerve health & repair, & prevention of

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular

risk factor that is known to cause damage

& plaque in the blood vessels. It

can also increase

the chances of a

stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease risk

of vision loss in a

study of participants

aged 40+ who supplemented with B12.

Another study linked a higher risk of

hearing loss in subjects in their 60’s who

were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication & other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth &

thru bypassing the digestive tract have

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels

in the body.

Further detailed information is

Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New

HEALTH & BEAUTY

New hope for patients

suffering from MS,

strokes or spinal injuries

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other physical and mental

health issues, Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment

that brings fast, and often immediate results.

PEGASUS POST

Special offer for DeceMBer - if you

have suffered a stroke, spinal injury or

have MS, then this article is for you.

A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan

established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch

in 1993. As she continued her research and medical

practice, she discovered a reflexology network on

the human body, an exciting new discovery that

became the foundation of her new treatment –

acupuncture without needles.

Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt instrument

to stimulate the reflexology points on the face

or other parts of the body. When the point is

stimulated by pressure, a message is sent to the

repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan

explains, the treatment increases energy, which

boosts the body’s healing system.

The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but

that is a slow process. In addition, many people will

start to use their injured part, for example a knee

or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore

prolonging the injury and even causing chronic

pain.

With her powerful treatment, results are produced

very quickly – even instantly.

She likens it to the differences between the

power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane

– other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

reflexology network.

It brings fast results because it is a very precise

treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people

of all ages with many different types of pain in all

parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects.

Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing

low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s

treatment.

Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant

improvement for muscle weakness and numbness

caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke

and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan

reflexology to see lots of instant results videos.

Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology

Network, which introduces the treatment and

explains how it works. Her website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes treatment

videos, where people who have had the treatment

speak about the fast relief it has brought them.

Dr Lan is offering 10 patients of stroke, 10

patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury

half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168,

mobile 027 231 8388.

RED CROSS

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children
