Sabotage claim in bid to save villa

TOM DOUDNEY

An excavation company has had

a digger allegedly sabotaged and

a tyre slashed amid community

opposition to the planned

demolition of an 152-year-old

Addington villa.

The Enfield Villa in Burke St

is set to be replaced by a block

of flats in spite of opposition to

save it.

Digout Services which is carrying

out the demolition made

a complaint to the police after

its $150,000 digger had sticks,

dirt and rubbish stuffed into its

air intake. Operations project

manager Nathan Paerata

said repairing the damage

this had caused would be

expensive.

The villa was the home

of Henry and Martha Bull

who sailed from Enfield in

England to New Zealand in

1862.

However, because of

modifications made to

it, Heritage New Zealand has

declined to give it a heritage

listing.

In 2012, the building was sold

to a Russian owner who also

wished to demolish the house

but after an outcry from local

residents he sold it to the current

owners last year.

Mr Paerata said one of his

workers had had a car tyre

slashed and he had no doubt that

this and the digger “sabotage”

were linked to opposition to

demolish the villa.

However, police said

there was not enough evidence

to pursue the matter.

Mr Paerata said the company

was being targeted

unfairly.

“It has been a bad experience,

that whole property,”

he said.

“We’re not in the business

of pulling down 150-yearold

houses, we’re not the ones

that decided not to put it on the

heritage list.”

He wouldn’t say when the

demolition would take place but

it wouldn’t be delayed by the

sabotage of the digger.

Heritage New Zealand adviser

Dave Margetts said he understood

the villa had been heavily

modified.

However, Addington historian

Mike Burdon said the alterations

were minimal and as one

of Addington’s original historic

houses it should be preserved.

“That place could be restored

and there would still be plenty

of room there to build the flats,”

he said.

“If the house was restored

they could also open it up to the

public and make money off it

too and that would be a big thing

for Addington.”

May the

fourth

be with you

Stormtroopers, Jedi knights

and galactic princesses made

class more interesting than

usual at St Martins School on

Wednesday, May 4. The day

is known as Star Wars Day,

due to the play on words

May the fourth be with you’.

Air pollution drops

Dust levels

still high

TOM DOUDNEY

The number of high air

pollution nights in the

Woolston area have dropped to

the lowest level in the last 10

years, monitoring shows.

However, dust levels are still

higher than before the earthquakes.

Quantities of PM10 (particulate

matter smaller than

10 micrometres) measured at

the Environment Canterbury

monitoring station in Woolston

exceeded national health standards

on four nights last year

and only once so far this year.

That was down from a high

of 23 in 2011, when the city

was hit by the February 22

earthquake.

The next lowest number of

exceedances for the last 10

years from 2006 was 11 in

2010.

High PM10 levels are associated

with a number of health

conditions such as difficulty

breathing, irritation of the

airways, reduced lung function

IN THE AIR: A commercial development on Ferry Rd. Development in

the Woolston area is one of several factors contributing to high dust

levels.

and asthma aggravation.

Woolston is one of two

Christchurch locations, along

with St Albans, where ECan

has monitoring stations. They

were chosen because they were

historically the worst suburbs

in the city for air pollution.

Woolston Community Association

co-ordinator Carol

Brown said dust was still more

noticeable than before the

earthquakes, although for most

residents it was just “a minor

nuisance.”

“We have had a few members

mention that at their home they

have a lot of dust around still,”

she said.

“I think a lot of us have just

put it down to ‘that’s life now’

and because there are so many

roadworks and things happening

that sort of stirs it all up again.”

ECan director for air Katherine

Trought

(left) said air

pollution in the

Woolston area

from home heating

had fallen.

However, dust

levels were still

high throughout the year – although

not high enough to raise

PM10 concentrations above

national health standards.

PM10 concentrations in the

Woolston area came from a

number of sources and activities.

These included home heating,

industrial operations and

activities such as land development,

transport and movement

occurring over large areas of

loose or bare earth.

“We have been working with

homeowners and industry postearthquakes

to ensure a balance

is maintained between supporting

recovery and improving air

quality,” Ms Trought said.

As of September, under

national guidelines Christchurch

will be required to have

no more than three exceedances

recorded in total for its

Woolston and St Albans monitoring

stations. From September

2020, that will drop to one

exceedance.

MAKEOVER FOR WOOLSTON

Woolston is set to get a makeover

on Saturday, thanks to the Student

Volunteer Army. A river clean-up,

tree planting, gardening, art and

bird habitat restoration projects are

planned as part of the City Care

Connect the Community initiative.

About 150 students are expected to

volunteer on the day, with a community

barbecue to be held at Bamford

School, 12-2pm, after the projects

have been completed.

WASTEWATER REPAIRS

Repairs to earthquake damaged

wastewater pipes starting this week

in Bowenvale Ave, Cashmere, will

take about a month to complete.

Temporary traffic lights are in

place. The work is part of the Stronger

BID TO INSTALL TRAFFIC

CALMING MEASURES

Addington Neighbourhood

Association chairwoman Sarah

McKenzie plans to ask the

Spreydon-Heathcote Community

Board about the possibility of

painting pictures or patterns on

the side of the road as a traffic

calming measure. Ms McKenzie

said the street had a high traffic

volume and many people drove too

fast. The tactic has been used at

the intersection of Shand Cres and

Tara St in Riccarton and is more

common in the United States.

Consider what is vital

Karolin Potter,

Spreydon-

Heathcote

Community

Board

chairwoman

The Annual

Plan – words that are a knife

to the heart for anyone who

has a horror of bureaucracy

and believes that nothing

is worthwhile if it isn’t

spontaneous.

The thing is that the more

planning, consultation and participation

goes into a project the

more democratic it is. The more

people are involved in the issues

in their community the more

transparent council processes

become. The more we know, the

better the outcome will be.

Right now we are in the race

for the deadline of Annual Plan

submissions on May 10. These

submissions will come from

you, your friends, your organisations

and your local community

board.

I am the new chair of Spreydon-Heathcote

Community

Board and barring a runaway

bus I will be its last chair and

this will be its last Annual

Plan to consider because after

SOAP

BOX

October you and I will be in

wards with different names and

changes in local leadership.

Annual Plans are considered

in the context of the Long Term

Plan and can sometimes change

the timing of projects. But if

that change is made, councillors

who make the decisions

and community board members

representing their community

should always be thinking that

if a new project is promoted up

the list another will inevitably

miss out.

We should have the most important

values and needs of our

whole community at the heart

of everything we do, especially

in a post-earthquake environment

with bugger-all money in

the pot.

I asked at a meeting in Hoon

Hay what were the most important

things for our community.

Someone said ‘safety’. So that

might be roads, footpaths,

parks, pedestrian crossings and/

or homes.

It might be poisoning our

weeds, an issue raised by Cashmere

residents, who would like

non-toxic control which costs

more and is less effective but

will be better for all of us.

At another meeting someone

said our cultural heritage. And

that will be Risingholme, the

Sign of the Kiwi and the Sign

of the Takahe, the old Opawa

Adult Library and the Old

Stone House.

In all of this, in the submissions

we make, in the buildings

and activities and the streets

and parks, we have to consider

what is really vital, how the

community can prioritise how it

spends its money in a way that

bests supports the cohesion and

care for each other that makes

us safe, happy, calm and active

participants in a society whose

members look around for those

that need a hand and a laugh.

And then I have a sneaky

thought – the most important

project might just be the

swimming pool for Linwood,

over our borders in another

ward but so vital for the young,

older people and families.

Hoon Hay resident Gary

Knight responds to Woolston

Preschool’s efforts to stay open

in the face of low enrolments

I read with interest about

the integrity and dedication

shown by Woolston Preschool

staff and children’s parents in

undertaking maintenance and

cleaning, also staff opting for pay

cuts all as measures to keep their

cash strapped pre-school open

(Southern View May 3).

This pre-school, presently having

54 enrolled children, requires

an upgrade in attendance in

order to make this community

venue with eight proud staff viable.

It was encouraging for

Woolston residents also to note

input from both MP Ruth Dyson

in approaching local business

entities for posters promoting

Woolston Preschool or donations.

Also motivating was the innovative

gesture of pre-school

manager Rachell Laugesen by

placement of posters in shops,

pamphlet drops and Facebook

notifications all aimed at extra

funding of this non-for-profit

high quality pre-school.

This action to save the future of

a revered venue is admirable and

bears testimony to the close-knit

community prevalent within

Woolston.

The criteria of the city council’s

2015-2025 Long Term Plan to

operate grants for community

wellbeing is surely the catalyst

to make funding available for

this very worthwhile community

project, within projected council

budgeting.

SOLID AUCTION RESULTS

Auctions continue to be the preferred way to sell and our gold

auction rooms have been standing room only this past week.

One of my auctions had over 60 potential purchasers through

their three week campaign with around 20 bidders there on the

day to achieve a price that exceeded our owners’ expectations.

Any agent can do an auction, but not every agent can create a

successful auction platform to reach a market premium through

open and transparent competition in the rooms – this is the key

to a great auction result.

We still have several qualified buyers looking for properties,

so give me a call if you are thinking of selling as we might

already have the perfect buyer on our books!

Clean-up

successful

GETTING STUCK IN: Spreydon-

Heathcote Community Board members,

from left, Melanie Coker, Helene

Mautner and chairperson Karolin Potter

were among those taking part in the

‘Mother of All Clean Ups’ on Sunday.

The board members joined members

of the Hoon Hay Resident’s Association

and others to clean up the stream

at Nga Puna Wai off Warren Cres,

Hillmorton. Across Christchurch, about

1300 volunteers collected more than

20 tonnes of litter which came from the

city’s waterways and estuary.

Bottle store plan abandoned

TOM DOUDNEY

Opposition from Addington

residents has forced a company

to abandon its plans for a bottle

store in Selwyn St.

It is the second time in as many

months that Addington residents

have stopped a bottle store from

being set up in their community.

AD Liquor Limited, owned by

brothers Amarjit and Ramandip

Singh, had applied for a liquor

off-licence for the site in the

Selwyn St shopping area near

Brougham St.

However, the city council received

42 objections to the licence

application and the Singhs,

after consultation with their lawyer,

have decided to withdraw

their application.

Amarjit Singh said their decision

was because of the high

number of public objections.

“We are not going ahead,” he

said.

“Because I don’t think [the application]

will go through.”

The site is currently bare with

the previous block of shops having

been demolished after the

2011 earthquake.

Addington Neighbourhood

Association chairwoman Sarah

McKenzie said residents had not

been happy about the idea of another

bottle store setting up.

“We have got far two many

bottle stores in the area, I think

within a 1km or 2km radius there

are about three or four.”

The site is just around the corner

from Addington School and

its board of trustees was one of

the objectors. Chairperson Matt

Sharr shared Ms McKenzie’s

concerns.

“We were a little bit concerned

that an over-saturation might

create a bit of a price war and

make [alcohol] even cheaper.”

Manuka Cottage community

development worker Cherylan

Davies said Addington was

a vulnerable community and

did not need any more bottle

stores.

In March, Nekita Enterprises

withdrew its application for a

liquor licence for a bottlestore

on the corner of Lincoln Rd and

Spencer St after 39 residents

submitted in opposition.

Jacob Ryan

From spray painting graffiti to

Opawa street artist Jacob Ryan (known as Jacobyikes) recently had his work featured in the Spectrum

festival. He spoke to Tom Doudney about how the earthquakes have affected Christchurch’s street

art scene, a narrow escape he once had on a rooftop and his other work shaping the city’s bars and

restaurants.

LEARNING CURVE: Street artist Jacobyikes started off as a rebellious

teenager spray painting graffiti down by the train tracks before becoming

more serious about his art.

So your work was part of

Spectrum, how did that go?

Yeah, I’ve been a part of

Spectrum for the past three

events. This year we spent like

three months building a replica

of a derelict abandoned building

in Christchurch and sort of

damaged it and filled it with

graffiti, so we basically created

this humongous life-like installation.

Were you just involved with

the art side of it or were you

working on the building as

well?

All of it. Three of us designed

it, then we had some builders

that put together the walls and

I have a background in special

effects so I used that knowledge

to create a lot of weathered

effects on the walls and

stuff to make them look like

they had been there a long time

and been damaged. Then we

went over the top of that with

the artwork.

What did you enjoy the

most – creating the building

or doing the art?

Probably doing the art. It was

real fun to create a building and

make our idea come to life but

it was a very long process and

quite tiring.

What happened to the

building now that Spectrum

is over?

It has only just been taken

down, basically. I’m not 100

per cent sure what is happening

next, it’s a bit of a mystery for

now.

How old are you now and

how did you get into doing

street art?

I’m 28 and have probably

been doing it seriously for 12

years. I was interested in art

from a very young age. Once I

got to high school graffiti and

street art were introduced to me

and it was all very new and a

pretty exciting rebellious way

to create artwork. It was one of

those things that all my peers

were into and I just stuck at it

and ended up making it into a

living, basically.

In those early days, where

did you do your graffiti?

Pretty much down the train

lines, really, a lot of it was out

of sight. I grew up being your

typical – I guess you would

class it as a sort of vandal, in

all honesty. I kind of grew up in

that sort of scene but I managed

to grow out of that fairly quickly

and produce works that were a

bit more substantial and actually

got respect from people outside

the graffiti scene too. I wouldn’t

be a vandal anymore, I don’t

go around damaging people’s

property, I tend to spend a bit

more time creating larger scale

pieces now.

Did you ever get into any

trouble over it?

A little bit, I had suspensions

from high school. It’s quite

funny actually, because about a

year ago I actually got commissioned

to come and paint a

graffiti artwork back at my old

high school which was quite

ironic really.

So yeah, I had your

typical slap on the hand type

punishments but I never

actually got charged with

anything. Thankfully I was

pretty good at not getting

caught.

being serious about street art

What do you think was the

most risky situation you would

have been in?

We had a bit of a scare one

night painting on a rooftop. This

guy and myself were up there

painting quite a massive piece

of work and had been there a

few hours. But we didn’t realise

there was actually someone

living behind the wall next to

where we were painting and

they came out quite angry and

what looked to be fairly naked

as well, and they ended up chasing

us off the roof.

I jumped off the roof which

would have been at least a four

or 5m jump and luckily didn’t

break any bones. It was pretty

risky but the worst part was I

left my bag and my wallet and

my ID up there so I ended up

climbing back up a couple of

hours later that night to retrieve

them.

Since the earthquakes, with

all the blank spaces and bare

walls it does seem like there

have been more festivals and

activities involving graffiti.

Do you think that has opened

people’s minds up more to

street art?

Yeah, absolutely. I think

pre-earthquakes the street art

AT WORK: Jacobyikes completing one of his artworks.

festivals and things that have

been happening just wouldn’t

have happened, basically. In my

opinion, Christchurch in the past

was quite conservative, and not

necessarily as open minded and

open to new things, especially in

the art scene, as it is now.

The opinion of it has definitely

lightened and it is something

I think, going into the future,

Christchurch will embrace more

as well. Street art and graffiti

are always a temporary thing

but in a city that is kind of reestablishing

itself I think there is

a massive part for public art to

be incorporated and therefore I

think Christchurch’s scene will

continue to thrive if there are

enough people here doing it.

A lot of what you do is

temporary. What is that like

when you create something

you might be really proud of

and then after a little while it’s

gone?

You kind of grow to accept it

in a way because at the end of

the day as long as I get a photo,

it’s okay, I can kind of walk

away from it.

But it does suck when you

have created a massive artwork

and it goes – I actually just had

that happen recently. The organisers

of Spectrum had arranged

for a guy to come from Sydney

to paint this mural that was on

Colombo St and before that had

all happened I found the wall

that I didn’t know was going to

be used for that. It was like 30m

long by 5m high and I painted

the entire thing in two or three

days. After I finished it I got call

from George, the director, and

he told me that was the wall they

had planned with CERA to have

this guy come and paint and they

basically had to paint over it like

a day after I finished it.

You mentioned your background

in ‘special effects’, do

you do that for work?

Not really, I’m a freelance

artist, but when that sort of work

is there I do it. Basically the

main thing I do with the effects

is create bars and restaurants,

predominately. A good example

would be Strangers Lane – all

the bars in there, all the crazy

things you see on the walls, the

tables, the chairs, finishes on

walls and windows, basically

anything that is not your typical

sort of framework is the sort

of thing we do. The next time

you are in there, everything you

can kind of see in those bars is

kind of what we have done after

builders and typical tradesmen

have all finished in there.

‘Finishing’ is what we class it

as – it’s something that gives

the restaurant a bit of a theme.

The brief in each bar is different

which keeps it fairly creative.

What is it like making a living

as a freelance artist?

It’s a struggle – you are sacrificing

stability to kind of push

your own ability as such. It’s

not an easy job but I definitely

wouldn’t want to live any other

way.

Are you pretty independent

or do you have any children?

Yeah, I have a child and a

mortgage but a great thing with

being self-employed is that I get

to spend a lot of time with my

kid and being able to be flexible

is really beneficial for him as

well so that’s a bonus.

Only about 30 per cent of the

cent includes false alarms, car

incidents and medical

emergencies where we provide

manpower with first aid skill

to back up the experts from St

Some of our work does not

neatly fit into any of the normal

categories. An elderly caller last

Thursday had knocked a cushion

that had fallen down the side

of her hot water cylinder. She

wondered if it was a fire risk. It

probably wasn’t. But St Albans

Red Watch crew went to her

house and retrieved the cushion

which almost certainly saved her

days and nights of worry.

We also saw the Wainoni crew

travelling to Collingwood St in

New Brighton the same day to a

child who had managed to trap

their leg in a gate. All the efforts

of the locals were to no avail. A

tool known as a hooligan bar,

a kind of short crowbar, was

utilised by the crew to bend the

railings enough to release the

trapped leg.

“I live and paint in a beautiful

rural Bay on Banks Peninsula,

surrounded by the ruggedness of

the landscape and the constant

and ever changing rhythm of the

sea.

Change is constant, something you

can either embrace or ignore. Either

way, change challenges us all.

This exhibition is entitled ‘Tipping

Point’, inspired by that point of

change that drives us all, to try

new things and to let others go, to

change the way we think and act.

My paintings express this

excitement, the doubt and

apprehension that change forces

on us all, urging me to try new

things and to let others go.

In ‘Mad as a March Hare’, we have

a lady suspended, her thoughts in

the cloud, searching to find where

her next step in life in will take her,

while below normality exists.

For the Hare, March means

madness, no fear, a month of

change and a new era begins and

the excitement of the unknown.

Like the Hare, when I am in ‘My

Zone’ as an artist in my studio in

Port Levy, my imagination takes me

to places unknown, experiences

and thoughts unheard of, and it

is through my paintings that I can

truly express these feelings.

Where they will lead me is unknown,

but just like the Hare, that is what

inspires me.”

Jacqui is an artist of figurative

subjects with life and energy. Jacqui

lives and paints on an isolated farm

in Port Levy, Banks Peninsula with

her husband and daughter Phoebe.

While Jacqui’s subject matter is

invariably the human form, it is

secondary to her exploring form,

structure, movement, colour and

texture. In her recent body of work,

there is a translucent feel which

gives the paintings a whole new

interest.

She has been painting and

exhibiting for a long time. Jacqui

is also a past winner of the annual

Students back from space trip

Some words of inspiration

from the last person to walk on

the moon will be among the

lasting memories for a group of

Cashmere High School students

who returned from the United

States recently.

The school’s biennial trip to

Space Camp USA in Huntsville,

Alabama, took place in the

school holidays.

Cashmere head of science

David

Paterson

said a talk

by astronaut

Gene Cernan

had been

inspiring.

“He was

the last man

to walk on

the moon and

told us about

his feelings

as he gazed

at Earth from

the surface of

the moon,” Mr

Paterson said.

“Like most

other astronauts

he was overwhelmed

with

the sense of life

emanating from Earth, and the

realisation of how fragile the

Earth looks in the vast black

emptiness of space. His first

message was that we all need to

protect our planet and manage

its resources wisely.

The school trip had an added

dimension this year with eight

students from Otago Boys’ High

School joining the 14 from Cashmere.

At space camp, the students

were woken early each day and

put through astronaut training

until 10pm at night.

They trained on rocket and

space station simulators, attended

lectures on space exploration

and rocket systems, built and

launched rockets, experience what

it’s like to work in space by scuba

diving, and carried out a 3hr simulated

mission as pilots or mission

specialists to land on Mars.

Then it was off to Florida for

the second part of the trip, the

main purpose of which was to

visit the Kennedy Space Centre

and see where the rockets are

actually launched. Here they got

to see the Space Shuttle Atlantis

which orbited Earth 4848 times

before being retired in 2011.

Orion is privileged to

have been associated

with Community Energy

Action (CEA) for more

than twenty years.

CEA is a charitable

trust that provides

insulation and energy

advice services to

the most vulnerable

in our community

with the overriding

objective of creating

warmer, healthier

and more energy

efficient homes.

Results of the Healthy

Homes Project, a recent

study undertaken by the

Canterbury District Health

Board and CEA, shows a

direct correlation between

insulated homes and a

reduction in hospital bed

days by up to 30%.

Working in a collaborative

partnership with CEA has

Many benefits from insulating homes

HEALTHY: A workman installing insulation under the floor of a

Canterbury home.

A successful partnership

between community, health

and commercial organisations

has helped save Canterbury

DHB nearly $1m, by providing

insulation and/or heating to high

health needs patients.

As well as reducing hospital

costs, it has also assisted in ensuring

people can remain in their

own homes.

In 2011, a Healthy Homes programme

was created between the

Canterbury DHB and the three

Canterbury primary health care

organisations, Community Energy

Action, Environment Canterbury

and the Energy Efficiency

Conservation Authority. Orion

and MainPower also contributed

funding into this programme.

The programme was developed

to keep people in their own

homes and communities rather

than using hospital services. This

recognised Canterbury’s compromised

housing stock following

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

The Canterbury DHB and partnering

organisations understood

the potential benefits for frequent

users of the health system of living

in warm and dry homes, including

improved physical and

mental health.

The programme initially focused

on people who had been in

the Christchurch Hospital at least

twice within a year prior to the

programme starting (defined as

being the highest-needs patients).

In July 2013, the programme was

extended to include general practice

patients, for example families

with children under 17 years

of age identified as being at risk

and parents with newborn babies.

The programme ran from 2011

to late 2014 and the whole programme

provided over 1500 insulation

installations and 450

heating appliances. Partnerships

amongst the organisations meant

many Healthy Homes’ clients

were referred to other organisations

and services, as additional

needs were identified.

A qualitative report was completed

by Pegasus Health in June

2015 on the whole programme.

Canterbury DHB invested

$1.7m over 2.5 years between

2011 and 2014, covering 22 per

cent of the total programme costs.

Around half of the $1.7m invested

went towards intervention

costs for the 900 highest-needs

patients, as defined above. The

remaining partnering organisations

covered the balance of the

total costs. Of those 900 highest-need

patients, a significant

number of them were aged over

65. There was an approximately

60 per cent/40 per cent split between

home owners and tenants.

After reviewing the health

data, comparing the year prior

to the interventions with the year

following, the findings showed a

29.2 per cent reduction in hospital

bed days of those 900 patients.

This equates to a reduction of

five bed days per annum, a cost

saving to the Canterbury DHB of

nearly $1m.

“This means the programme

was extremely successful for the

community and all involved including

the Canterbury DHB,”

says Caroline Shone, chief executive

of CEA.

“Whilst the cost for insulation

and heating is a one-off, the

benefits last for years. I’m sure

for the Canterbury DHB the return

on investment can be spent

on other health needs. This programme

was a first for CEA and

the other organisations involved,

I am really happy that we have

helped so many people working

in partnership with Government,

private and public sector organisations.”

Greg Hamilton from the Canterbury

DHB said he was “delighted

with the results.”

David Meates, CEO of Canterbury

DHB said: “This is just

brilliant to see the hard evidence

being brought to life.”

The above analysis only takes

into account one of a number of

benefits (hospitalisation) which

result from improving a home’s

insulation. There are other considerable

benefits to this programme

including:

Hospital benefits after the first

12 months – a single intervention

has a 40-year life span taking into

account the life of the insulation;

benefits to partners, children and

others living in the same dwelling;

benefits to future occupants;

reduction in other primary and

community services required for

intensive post-discharge rehabilitation;

reduction in absenteeism

from work/school for all home

occupants due to improved overall

health; people living in their

own homes with better wellbeing

and feeling safer; and empowerment

through improved physical

health, mental health and/

or an improved general state of

mind/well-being; establishment

of other successful working relationships

with a range of organisations,

with a focus to assist

vulnerable families.

To date, EECA has provided

approximately $450m worth of

subsidies for insulation nationwide

through their programmes,

including Warm Up New Zealand.

The Healthy Home Programme

analysis shows the need to continue

with programmes such as

these, particularly when EECA

and CEA through their own surveys,

have identified that there

are still over 30,000 low income

family homes in Canterbury

alone, with inadequate or no insulation.

There have been other relevant

New Zealand studies and discussions

over the years around the

need to improve housing quality

and the associated health benefits.

Trying out the trombone at Try an Instrument Day

UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra in rehearsal

CHRISTCHURCH SCHOOL OF MUSIC

2015 was a really busy year for the

Christchurch school of Music with lots of

exciting things happening. In september

the school celebrated its Diamond Jubilee

– 60 years of providing excellent music

tuition and ensemble opportunities to

thousands of Cantabrians.

Other highlights of 2015 were working

with G&a Creative to develop a new

website, logo and brand for the school and

the signing of a sponsorship arrangement

with the University of Canterbury for our

flagship orchestra, now known as the UC

Christchurch Youth Orchestra.

Most exciting of all, in December, the

school moved back home onto the site of

the old Music Centre. with the support

of the Catholic Diocese, the school is

housed in four portable buildings on

the site adjacent to Catholic Cathedral

College where all the instrumental and

voice teaching takes place on a saturday

morning and after school. The buildings

will officially open on Friday 13 May

with a celebration to say thank-you to

all the organisations that have supported

us to get to this stage. Many hours of

work have gone into fitting out the new

buildings with furniture, shelving, storage

and teaching materials to ensure it is a

friendly, welcoming and efficient place

for the school to operate from. Particular

thanks to Creative New Zealand and Rata

Foundation who have provided financial

support for the fit out

so along with its new branding, a new

user-friendly website and a great new

place to call home the CsM is in good

heart and enjoying a fantastic year of

music making in 2016.

From pre-schoolers to septuagenarians,

the CsM caters for a wide range of ages

and musical styles offering opportunities

for group or individual tuition in all

- WE ARE BACK!

held regularly.

CsM also provides a comprehensive

music education to participating primary

schools via its Outreach programmes.

with programmes offered in band,

strings, recorder and ukulele in a wide

range of Christchurch schools this is an

area of the school, which has grown fast

over the last few years.

another area that has grown rapidly

over the last few years is the Late starters

programme thanks to the great work of

well-known Cantabrian and CsM alumni

Mark walton. adults approaching

retirement with more time on their

hands have really enjoyed learning an

instrument they never had the chance

to play in their early years and join an

ensemble with other like-minded adults.

short courses are offered in subjects

such as theory and aural perception and

the school strives to meet the needs of

our students and families in every way we

can.

The Christchurch school of Music was

established in 1955 by Robert Perks, MBE,

to provide an education in instrumental

music for primary schools. since then the

school has extended it activities to include

students of all ages and has also added

vocal lessons and choral opportunities.

as well as our opening there are some

important events coming up.

On 21 May, the UC Christchurch Youth

Orchestra will present its first concert

of the year under the baton of new

conductor, Helen Renaud at the Charles

Luney auditorium at st Margaret’s

College starting at 7.30pm. The concert is

titled “Metamorphosis” and will feature

works by sparke, Vaughan williams,

Hindemith, Brahms and Rossini. Tickets

are available through Eventfinda and

there will also be door sales.

The CsM also has two Kidsfest events

in the July holidays. The Composer is

Dead by Lemony snicket is a really good

fun, engaging concert that will teach the

children all about the instruments of the

orchestra and is being held on Tuesday

12 July at 11.30am and 1.00pm in the

Charles Luney auditorium Tickets will

be available through Dash ticketing from

the beginning of June.

If you have always wanted to play an

instrument but you’re not sure which

one or you want to give your children a

chance to have a go on all the instruments

to help them decide, come along to our

popular and free Try an Instrument Day

on Tuesday 19 July from 11am-1pm in

the Hall at Catholic Cathedral College.

You will get to hear the experts playing

the instruments and then have a go

yourself. Heaps of fun guaranteed and

a great opportunity to find out what

instrument really appeals. we look

forward to seeing you.

Please contact us via our website www.

csm.org.nz and let us start you on a

musical journey that will bring pleasure

for a lifetime.

Whether you’re 2 or 92, a complete

beginner or an experienced player, CSM

offers something for you.

Tips to improve your running

Running should be as easy as

putting one foot in front of the other

right? Anyone can run, but having good

technique can make it feel so much

easier.

good running technique will make

your runs feel less tiring, reduce

your risk of injury, and ultimately

be more enjoyable. Muscle People

Physiotherapists specialise in assessing

and improving running technique

whether you are a competitive runner or

just running for fun.

start getting better now with these basic

tips:

POSTURE

• Keep your head straight

look straight ahead of you, about 30-40

metres out in front and avoid looking

down at your feet. looking down will

create tension in your neck and shoulders.

• shoulders back and down

Your shoulders should be back and down

not up by your ears. Keep them relaxed

and avoid tensing them. don’t hunch

over as this restricts breathing.

• Keep your elbows at 90 degrees

Your elbows should be bent at a 90 degree

angle. Try to swing your arms forward

and back, not across your body. This arm

movement helps to propel you forward.

Your hands should be relaxed, but don’t

let them flop. Tight hands can cause

tension all the way up to the back and

shoulders.

• solid core

Focus on keeping your core (trunk) firm,

though not rigid, and straight and your

hips and shoulders level and relaxed.

Keeping this position in your hips can

help prevent low back and hip pain.

FOOT STRIKE AND LEG POSITION

• don’t strike the ground too heavily

good running is light and quiet. You

should land in the middle of your foot

with a slightly bent knee. Whatever your

weight, your feet should not slap loudly

as they hit the ground. light steps are

more efficient and cause less stress to the

body and landing on the middle of your

foot is the safest way to land for most

recreational runners.

That’s the basics but there’s always more

we can do to help. Try these:

RUNFIT – The technical edge

Muscle People Physiotherapy &

the YMCA gym have a running

group in hagley Park – RunFit, led

by a Physiotherapist and Canterbury

competitive runner, and a Personal

Trainer from the YMCA gym. RunFit

focuses on running technique which

is vital to improving speed, reducing

injuries and making running more

enjoyable for both regular runners

and the beginner. RunFit is ideal for

regular runners who are looking to

challenge themselves, as well as the

beginning runner who wants to start

with good technique and the guidance of

professionals.

technique wasn’t contributing to that.

over the course of the RunFit programme

i improved my technique, got faster and

i’m injury free. My training plan is on

track for my first marathon in June.”

Celia, works in sydenham, “RunFit is

the perfect combination of running drills,

core strength and running and i enjoyed

the variety. The core strength training

has helped with my tennis and posture

and i’ve learnt a lot about running form

to help with training in my solo sessions.

The physiotherapist and personal

trainer are fantastic and work really well

together, their on-hand knowledge is

invaluable. The small group environment

is very encouraging and works for all

abilities. i highly recommend RunFit - in

fact i’ve just signed up for more!”

A very sought-after location underpins the

value of this investment: handy to schools and
