Call for river booms

SIGN REMOVAL: During a river clean-up earlier this year

volunteers removed a sign from the Heathcote River near

Richardson Tce. ​

• By Caitlin Miles

NETS TO catch rubbish may be

the solution to cleaning up the

Heathcote River, making a dent in

the amount of rubbish collected

from the waterway.

At a city council meeting last

week, members of three organisations

who care for waterways

asked city councillors to re-install

nets, called booms, that were

removed after the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

The booms stretch from one

side of the river to the other, allowing

water to flow through, but

snare rubbish.

Earlier this year 20 tonnes of

rubbish was collected from the

Heathcote and other city waterways.

This has spurred river network

groups, Opawaho/Heathcote River

Network, Avon-Otakaro River

Network and Avon-Heathcote

Estuary/Ihutai Trust to approach

the city council.

There were booms installed in

parts of the rivers around the city

but they were taken out following

the February quake because the

banks were unstable and city

council staff could not get close

enough to the bank to safely

remove the rubbish.

The city council has agreed to

investigate the booms and other

options that may work.

City council land drainage

manager Keith Davidson said staff

are happy to investigate but at the

moment there was no money allocated

for re-installing booms.

“There would be a capital cost

of stabilising the banks and

reinstating the booms, perhaps

in the order of $50,000 each,

together with increased annual

operational costs that are not currently

planned or provided for,”

Mr Davidson said.

But Opawaho/Heathcote River

Network co-chairwoman Helene

Mautner said the booms were

vital to help restoring rivers to

being cleaner.

snapped a selfie with Linwood Avenue

School’s room 10 pupils when he visited

on Friday. Romano was joined by fellow All

school to meet the pupils who won a fair play

competition. The pupils entered a video of

what they think being a good sport means. The

competition was run by the city council, New

ELECTION PAPERS should be in

the mail boxes of most this week

and we are ramping up our election

coverage on pages 8,9 and 10.

All bets are likely to go on incumbent

city councillor Yani Johanson

winning the Linwood Ward,

against Alexandra Davids who

has not made much of an impression

on the community board this

term, and relative unknown Scott

Toomey. Incumbent city councillor

Phil Clearwater has a battle on

his hands in the Spreydon Ward,

in a two-horse race against Patricia

Siataga who has strong links to the

community.

The Halswell Ward will is up

in the air, with four very strong

candidates but my money has to go

on Halswell Community Project’s

Chrys Horn, but long-time community

board member Peter Laloli

could provide an upset.

Either way, don’t let those voting

documents gather dust, otherwise

you could end up with someone you

don’t want sitting around the table.

Community against school closure

SURVEY: During the meeting last week the Ministry of Education talked to the community about

the survey. ​

• By Caitlin Miles

A FACILITATOR working for

the Ministry of Education has

told the Rowley Avenue School

community that she will tell

authorities “closure is off the

table.”

At a meeting held on

Wednesday to discuss the future

of schools in the Halswell

area, MoE facilitator Gabrielle

Wall said she would put in her

report to authorities that the

community did not want the

school closed.

“I will let the MoE know how

strongly the community feel

about this school and how they

don’t want it moved . . . closure

is off the table,” she said.

More than 100 people went to

the meeting at the school, where

they were directed to complete

surveys about the proposal.

Due to a population explosion

in Halswell, options have been

explored on how to address

future schooling needs.

An option was to shift Rowley

Avenue School to a new site as it

had the lowest roll.

Following further discussions

between the ministry and community,

a survey was created

which detailed eight options.

The survey was then extended

to 12 options, when it was presented

to the community.

Principal Anthony Faitaua

was at the meeting. He encouraged

those attending to take

the survey to prevent the school

moving.

“If we don’t do the survey,

who knows what the ministry

will do,” Mr Faitaua said.

The community can access

the survey until September

In Brief

BUS SHELTER PROPOSAL

The Spreydon-Heathcote Community

Board has approved the

installation of a bus shelter at

126 Halswell Rd. An average of

41 people a day use this bus stop.

The planned shelter will cost

$9000 to install and there is no

date for when construction will

begin.

COSTLY REPAIRS

Repairs in the Spreydon-Heathcote

Ward were the third most

expensive in the city. About $260

million has been spent in the

area repairing bridges, roads and

pipes. Stronger Christchurch

Infrastructure Rebuild Team

recently released figures showing

how much money has been spent

repairing different wards around

the city.

RIVER MAINTENANCE

WORK

The city council has started work

on sections of the Heathcote River

between Fifield and Riverlaw

Tces. The work will include removing

stones and rocks, minor

bank widening and contouring,

and taking out vegetation, which

is having an impact on capacity

or flow. This will allow for the

aquatic weed harvester boat to

work on keeping the river moving

and clean further upstream.

The work is expected to take five

weeks.

Sports field set

to be reforested

• By Tom Doudney

Tuesday September 20 2016

A SCHOOL sports field which

has fallen out of use is to be

transformed into a forested

basin as part of a storm water

management project.

The city council is negotiating

the purchase 2.75ha of the 3.2ha

Linwood College lower fields on

Ferry Rd from the Ministry of

Education.

The college used to use the site

for sports purposes, but since

the 2011 earthquakes, it has only

used a portion of the grounds

for its satellite unit, the Kimihia

Parents’ College.

If the sale goes ahead, the

parents’ college would stay on the

land retained by the ministry.

The city council wants to use

the land as part of a series of

works, between Antigua St in the

central city and Hargood St in

Woolston, designed to improve

flood protection and water quality

in the Bells Creek catchment.

It intends to plant 2500 trees

on the lower fields site, with work

beginning in December this year

and finishing in April.

Its landscape plan shows two

open water areas with the majority

of the site being a mix of low

wetland plantings and taller trees

such as kahikatea.

The work also fits with a new

Christchurch Tree and Urban

Forest Plan, which the city council

is developing.

The plan is intended to provide

strategic direction for enhancing

and managing forested

areas in the city while promoting

biodiversity and conservation

outcomes.

City council land drainage

manager Keith Davison said the

forested basin was not intended

to be open to the public.

However, at the request of the

Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board, this would be considered

via a crime prevention through

environmental design review,

which has been commissioned.

The findings will be reported

back to the community board in

late November.

City councillor Yani Johanson

said he believed the community

board should have a decision

making role on use of the site

and local residents should be

consulted. He had asked staff to

clarify if this would be the case.

Intersection upgrade a priority

UPGRADES TO a Cracroft

intersection will go ahead – at

the expense of other roading

projects.

At the city council meeting

last week, plans to upgrade the

Worsleys, Cashmere and Hoon

Hay Rds intersection were

brought forward to 2017-2019.

The $2.8 million needed to

bring the project forward was

pulled from other roading upgrades

in Shirley and the central

city.

The project was planned to be

carried out from 2021-2023 and

includes adding traffic signals to

the intersection.

Residents have been lobbying

for changes to the intersection

for 21 years, saying it was busy

and dangerous.

In April, Southern View

reported residents and the

Spreydon-Heathcote Community

Board had seen an

increase in traffic congestion at

the intersection, with the new

Christchurch Adventure Park

under construction.

Between 2010-2014, it had six

reported crashes there, three

of which resulted in serious

injuries.

In June, city councillors asked

staff to look into other ways of

funding the upgrade so it could

be brought forward, as the

BUSY: City councillors opted to bring forward an upgrade to

the Worsleys, Cashmere and Hoon Hay Rds intersection.

adventure park is due to open in

December.

The report asked councillors

to approve taking $742,560 from

a project to mitigate the effects

the Northern Arterial and Cranford

St upgrade would have on

Marshland Rd, south of Queen

Elizabeth 11 Drive.

Councillors were also asked to

approve taking about $1 million

SOUTHERN VIEW

from a project to improve the

Cashel St and Fitzgerald Ave

intersection.

However, this intersection had

21 crashes there between 2010-

2014.

The work would see the intersection,

which is currently made

up of two ‘T-intersections’ with

give-way signs, merged into one,

with traffic signals installed.

Swimmer ready for transplant games

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BEN STANBURY, 11, was

once told he had a one-in-three

chance of dying.

Now, after receiving a liver

transplant last year, the young

swimmer will be the only child

organ recipient from New

Zealand to be compete at the

Australian Transplant Games

held in Sydney.

Ben, of St Albans, will travel

to Sydney this week to compete

in swimming, shot-put, a 50m

sprint and 10-pin bowling.

At four months old, Ben

was diagnosed with polycystic

kidney disease after he was

rushed to hospital with heart

failure.

The disease is a genetic disorder

where abnormal cysts grow

in the kidneys. He also

had severe problems with his

liver.

The night of his diagnosis was

a moment his mother Traci Stanbury

would never forget after she

was told he had a one-in-three

chance in dying.

“In the end they paralysed

him, put him on an ambulance

and he spent the next month

living up in Starship Hospital,”

she said.

Mrs Stanbury said since the

“traumatic” night, Ben’s heart

condition.

with just like a giant band-aid

Last year Ben had a transplant thing over my stomach,” Ben

operation after he was donated said.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

It was an experience he

described as “confusing” but

because he recovered so quickly

from the operation he was out

of hospital in about five weeks

and back into swimming a few

months later.

Over the next few years Ben

will be looking to have a kidney

transplant with his kidney function

currently at 40 per cent.

Mrs Stanbury said he will be

put on a waiting list of about

600 people when it gets to 30 per

cent.

But for now, Ben is looking

forward to going over to competing

in the games as well as visiting

Featherdale Wildlife Park.

“For him to be the exact same

as everyone else in the room and

to be completely normal, that is

quite a cool thing for him to do,”

Mrs Stanbury said.

Inspired by paralympian Sophie

Pascoe, who won five medals

at the Rio Paralympics, Ben

will be competing in numerous

events including his favourite

sport of swimming.

Ben first became interested

in swimming at age four and

leading up to the games he has

been practising once a week in

preparation.

“Never give up because it can

always be done,” he said.

“Ben is very proud of the fact

he is going. He is a very laid-back

kid by nature just because of

everything he has been through,”

Mrs Stanbury said.

Call for

river booms

•From page 1

“It’s important to us to get

the rivers around the city clean

again and booms will start

helping with that process,” Dr

Mautner said.

“We just want the council to

look at options at the moment

and realise there is a need and

it would be beneficial to our

waterways,” she said.

Dr Mautner also wants the

city council to look at how they

currently operate cleaning the

Woolston Cut.

The Woolston Cut has five

gates that open and close to allow

water to move through, but

Dr Mautner has noticed rubbish

collecting at one of the gates.

Mileage claims cost $30k

• By Bridget Rutherford

SPREYDON-Heathcote city

councillor Tim Scandrett

was one of only two elected

officials not representing Banks

Peninsula to claim back their

mileage costs.

City councillors and

community board members

made up the majority of those

who claimed

back their

mileage costs

over the past

term.

Cr Scandrett

(left) and Burwood-Pegasus

Community

Board member Linda Stewart

were the only ones to claim

mileage back who were not representing

Banks Peninsula.

Cr Scandrett claimed $385

back, while Ms Stewart got $526.

Cr Scandrett said he clocked

up mileage travelling to Rolleston

for his fortnightly Selwyn-

Waihora Zone Committee

meetings.

Akaroa-Wairewa Community

Board chairwoman Pam Richardson

got $11,468 back from the

city council, which made up a

third of the total claims.

Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community

Board chairwoman

Paula Smith came in second at

$7819, while Banks Peninsula

city councillor Andrew Turner

claimed $6868.

City councillors and community

board members can claim

back 74c for every kilometre

they travel over 30km when they

are going to and from council

or board business in their own

vehicles.

The rates are set by the Remuneration

Authority.

Banks Peninsula representatives

have to drive further to

get to council-related meetings,

because the wards cover a larger

area.

Of the 28 community board

representatives and 13 city councillors,

only five board members

and two city councillors claimed

Church rejoices over 150 years

• By Tom Doudney

SOUTH WEST Baptist

Church will celebrate its 150th

anniversary next month with a

street party and other festivities.

Celebrations will be held over

the weekend of October 14-16,

with the street party on the

night of October 15 featuring

bouncy castles, food vendors,

roving entertainments, stalls

and live music.

Part of Lyttelton St will be

closed for the event.

On October 16 there will

be three celebration services

at 9am, 11am and 7pm, with

morning tea and a cake cutting

at 10.30am.

Senior pastor Alan

Jamieson (left) said

the milestone was

a huge deal for the

church, which was

the second oldest

baptist church in the city.

“There have been high points

and low points; there have been

times of great growth and times

of stagnation; there has been all

those things in the mix, but 150

years of faithful commitment is

worth celebrating,” he said.

There were about 2000 people

involved with the church.

Over the last 150 years it has

been known by several names

– Lincoln Rd Baptist, Lyttelton

St Baptist, Spreydon Baptist –

before becoming South West

Baptist Church in 2013, when

it recombined with its offshoot

Halswell Baptist Church.

Its history can be traced back

to 1865 when a 24-year-old farm

labourer named Thomas Jefcoate

arrived in Spreydon with his

wife Janet. At that time, the area

was swamp and tussock paddocks.

Mr Jefcoate wanted to start

a church in the area and approached

a local farmer’s wife,

Charlotte Twigger, who said he

could use a small sod house.

He began a milk run to raise

money and the first service was

held in the sod house in September

1865. However, the church’s

formation wasn’t officially recognised

until the following year.

A chapel was opened in 1867

and 10 years later, services began

at a larger Lincoln Rd building.

During the 1930s, another

church was started on Lyttelton

St and, in 1949, the two churches

– Lincoln Rd Baptist and Lyttelton

St Baptist – were combined

at the present Lyttelton St site.

Buildings were transported from

the Lincoln Rd site by traction

engine.

LONG HISTORY: The South West Baptist Church will celebrate

its 150th anniversary next month. ​

MOVING HOUSE:

The Lincoln Rd

Baptist and Lyttelton

St Baptist churches

were combined in

1949 with buildings

being transported

to the new site by

traction engine.

Intersection

free from

windscreen

washers

THE BUCKLEYS Rd and

Linwood Ave intersection has

been clear of windscreen washers

since the city council cracked

down on them.

In October last year the city

council gave police authority to

seize windscreen washers’ equipment

and prosecute them under

a bylaw, which prohibits people

from undertaking commercial

activities in public places without

first obtaining a permit.

Police asked to be given

authority to enforce the bylaw

because they were worried that

windscreen washers at busy intersections

were putting themselves

and others at risk and causing

problems for nearby businesses.

A city council report said activity

largely ceased overnight and

police currently have no serious

concerns about health and safety

or crime related to windscreen

washing.

education on food quality. I know great

things can be delivered by communities

when rightly empowered. Priorities:

candidate

Having grown

up in Halswell,

I returned 13

years ago and

have worked in

this community

and across greater Christchurch

to support good community

outcomes on issues such as resource

management, transport and

earthquake recovery. Initiatives I

have driven include the Halswell

Community Project, the Halswell

Newsletter, the Halswell Community

Website and the Halswell Market

. These required good leadership,

communication with residents,

excellent teamwork and a capacity to

strategise and get things done. I have

a PhD in social science, a biophysical

science training and a professional

background in environmental

management and community

resilience.

Dr Melaine

Coker:

board candidate

I am the deputy

chair of the

Spreydon-

Heathcote

Community

Board. I assisted residents in

forming the Hoon Hay Community

Association. Together we retained

the council’s former children’s library

as the new Hoon Hay Community

Centre. I encouraged local youth

to form the Spreydon-Heathcote

Youth Community Board, a first

for Christchurch, as I believe that

youth participation is essential for

democracy.

I have a PhD in biochemistry and

business experience as the director

of my own education company

AHeadStart Ltd. I am dedicated,

organised and hard-working. My top

priorities are community facilities,

traffic solutions and keeping our strategic

council-owned assets.

Phil Clearwater: Spreydon Ward city council

I believe in putting people at the heart of Christchurch’s

rebuild and regeneration and I am passionate about

getting things done. As a current city councillor, I have

chaired the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment

Committee, leading the planning and decision-making

for Christchurch’s major cycleway and flood protection

projects. I have supported council’s affordable and social

housing developments.

I will continue working to:

•Protect our pure drinking water and restore the water quality of our city’s

rivers.

•Keep our strategic assets, make Christchurch safer and support a limit on

suburban liquor outlets.

I bring to council integrity, experience and leadership.

Debbie

Mora:

Halswell

Ward

community

board

candidate

I am the only

‘local’ incumbent

candidate

standing for Halswell Ward and

I have lived here for 30 years.

Living local and having experience

is important and I bring this

to the table. Many of the people

who I have met in my Halswell

Ward, including children, have

all expressed a desire for a safe

and vibrant community. I will

continue to advocate for this and

include the following:

•Safer roads.

•Cheaper council pool entry

prices.

•Halswell Quarry cafe.

•Continue to listen to my community.

Paul Lonsdale:

Heathcote

Ward city

council

candidate

I have served

three years as

councillor for

the Hagley-Ferrymead

Ward. We

have been busy with a lot of planning

and decision-making around

building resilience for the future and

working closely with the affected

communities on how we achieve

that. Throughout this term, I have

always been accessible, even during

times of heavy workload. This has

enabled me to develop an intimate

knowledge and understanding of

all the local issues. We have come a

long way from three years ago and I

believe consistency will be essential

in the coming term to continue on

the solid path we have created.

Darrell Latham

(Independent):

Heathcote Ward

community board

candidate

As a Sumner Community

Residents’

Association member,

I have written submissions

relating to

the coastal pathway, reserves, fencing,

footpaths and other geotechnical works.

I prepared the Association’s annual plan

and briefed the mayor and city councillors.

As a member of Christchurch

Coastal Residents United, together

we achieved a review of the council’s

coastal hazards policy. My background

is as a teacher, education centre director

and university senior lecturer. Genuine

partnerships create strong, effective

and resilient communities. Therefore,

I support more decision-making being

devolved to the local community board

level. I have the experience and knowledge

to effectively represent Heathcote

residents.

also priorities. Vote for Rosemary: Let’s do it!

Rowley School – what’s next?

Elections 16

In the lead up to the local body elections, Southern

View is asking candidates their views on topical

issues within the community. This week, we ask

Spreydon Ward city council and Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board candidates whether they think

Rowley Avenue School should move to a Halswell

site or be rebuilt on its current site, and why. If you

have an issue you want candidates to cover in the

Halswell Ward send it to caitlin.miles@starmedia.kiwi

Phil Clearwater: Spreydon Ward city

council candidate

“Christchurch people have had enough

of our valued, local schools, which are an

integral part of our communities, being

closed. The cultural and social impact of

potentially closing Rowley School is totally

unacceptable. Rowley parents want their

children to attend a primary school in their

own community. Pre-schools in Hoon Hay/Rowley are set

up so those children feed into Rowley School. City council

want kids to be able to walk or bike to school instead of

parents taking and collecting them by car, adding to traffic

congestion. The Ministry of Education must listen to

children, parents, teachers the community board and our

city council.“

Melanie Coker: Spreydon

Ward community board

candidate

Rowley Avenue School lives at

the heart of a proudly bilingual

and multi-cultural community,

and mirrors its surroundings

by offering a unique Māori

and Samoan bilingual learning

environment. Rowley’s special character is

enhanced by supportive relationships between

students, families and teachers. All students

are encouraged to embrace their own culture

and language and be proud of their identity. It

is impossible to fathom the potential closure

of Rowley and how its students will retain

their culture at a larger school in Halswell,

3km away. The Rowley community will stand

together to fight this and I support them

whole-heartedly – Rowley united!

Karolin Potter: Spreydon

Ward community candidate

At the last meeting of the

Spreydon-Heathcote Community

Board, I moved a resolution in

support of Rowley School and

its retention as the centre of its

community in Rowley, Hoon

Hay. This was carried unanimously

by the board. I believe that Rowley’s

support of its tamariki and whanau and their

diverse languages and cultures is unique and

invaluable and that would be lost if the school

was to move or disappear from its geographic

location. Rowley is not just a school, it is

Rowley’s beating heart.

Catherine White: Spreydon

Ward community board

candidate

Rowley Avenue School should not

be shifted but should stay in the

area of which it is the hub. Bus

fares are too dear in Christchurch,

particularly for poorer families

to have to bus children to school.

This school deserves significant financial investment,

as it is loved by pupils and parents.

Patricia Siataga: Spreydon Ward city

council candidate

Upon attending this workshop, I noted that

the shifting of it was off the table and the

school consultation was to have a rebuild

on their current site. The consultation document

provided a good opportunity for the

community to feed back how it could look.

I can proudly say that I have strong connections

to this community both professional and personally. It

is unique in being a bilingual and multi-cultural school that

services the community surrounding it.

But wait…there’s more

Celebrations at fast-growing Hornby travel outlet

House of Travel Hornby is

celebrating its second birthday

this month, and since its launch

in 2014, not only has the business

grown, with staff numbers increasing from

three to five, it has also collected several

awards.

As owner/operator Paula Waldeck

explains, in its first year of operation,

House of Travel Hornby was named

‘Best Performing Small Outlet’ for 2015.

Plus, at the same awards two of the travel

consultants received sales awards.

And this year, Paula, who has been in

the travel industry since 1996, has been

nominated as one of three nationwide

finalists at the TAANZ (Travel Agent

Association of New Zealand) Awards in

the category of ‘Retail Manager of the

Year’. The winner will be announced later

this month.

Paula and her “awesome team” of travel

specialists – Kirsty Stewart, Sarah Davy

and Christine Gilliver, and travel and sales

support team member Shaunice Ross, are

“passionate about all things travel.”

The travel specialists all have extensive

experience in the travel industry and have

travelled widely themselves so they can

pass on their first-hand experience. They

each have special areas of the world

they particularly like, and enjoy nothing

more than helping their clients plan and

book trips to many of these exciting and

fascinating destinations.

As Paula notes, they enjoy working

with customers to create the best holiday

possible.“We encourage clients to bring

in their ideas, whether from magazines,

friends or the internet to a consultant and

from there we develop and enhance ideas

to book the best- possible trip.”

Helping people make the most of their

overseas trips, House of Travel Hornby

passes on their top tips and ensures they

get the best value airfare to suit their needs,

so travellers have extra funds to spend on

activities, shopping, or whatever they wish

to do.

One of the most popular options at

present, Paula says, is cruising – either

river or ocean cruising. With many

wonderful opportunities available to see

the world this way, increasing numbers of

clients are booking cruises, she says.

House of Travel Hornby at 40 Carmen

Road has parking right outside the door.

I have the dream job! Leading a fabulous

team of travel experts who love their

customers and help create dreams into

reality. My last holiday was South Africa

and my next one is Fiji, both with my

family. Top of my list for next year is a

Caribbean cruise and New York.

I have a passion for travel! I absolutely

love being in this job. Helping people

create their own adventures and getting

excited with them is my favourite part!

My last holiday was a six-week holiday

through the USA, San Fran, Las Vegas,

New York Mexico and everything inbetween!

Top of my list for next year is

discovering a new beach in Asia.

Travel and exploring the globe is number

one on my life’s list! I love wildlife and

water so typically hot and adventurous

destinations get my tick. My last holiday

was Europe – a Greek Island Cruise,

Istanbul and Jerusalem. Top of my list for

next year – backpacking either Romania

or India.

The best part of this job is helping people

arrange memorable holiday experiences

– it’s such a privilege be involved. My last

holiday was Melbourne followed by Las

Vegas and then Rarotonga. Top of my list

for next year is Cuba. Followed closely by

Hawaii and LA.

I love being surrounded by all things

travel every day. Helping the girls

plan their clients’ dream holiday is so

rewarding, and it’s great to see everyone

having so much fun in the process. My last

holiday was Rarotonga and its tropical

beaches. Top of my list for next year is Fiji

and Bali.

Major developments scheduled for local high school

An integral part of the Hornby

community, Hornby High School,

which opened in 1975, is itself about

to undergo significant developments.

All the present school buildings, apart

from the auditorium and music school, which

will have a facelift, are to be demolished

and replaced with a brand-new complex of

buildings. Work on the $24-million project

is due to start in March/April 2017 with

completion expected in late 2018.

Principal Robin Sutton reveals the details:

“The administration building and the library

will be demolished and replaced with one

large, 90-metre-long building, which will house

our specialised teaching areas – the sciences,

design/technology and the arts. That’s where we

believe the heart of the school is.”

“Creativity is at the heart of what we do,” he

adds. “As technology changes, the ability for

all of us to be creative human beings is what

matters.”

In more physical terms, the heart of the new

school, the whare, also located in this building,

will be the focus of the school’s cultural

activities.

The school’s new library will incorporate a

student café, which will be nothing like the

standard school tuck shop, Mr Sutton says. A

place where students can take time out between

classes, it will offer comfortable seating areas

and a barista station.

Also part of the development is a space

comprising three learning hubs, each designed

to accommodate 200 students and offer

flexibility for different teaching and learning

activities. It will allow for additions at a later

date.

Covered laneways between the various

buildings will provide space where students

can “hang out”.

Hornby High will also be getting a brandnew

gymnasium, or more precisely, two

gymnasiums built as one complex, with a

basketball court in each building.

“This is to meet community demand for

recreational facilities in Hornby,”

Mr Sutton says.

Hornby High School is growing, with

the new buildings initially designed to

accommodate 800 students, but with the

Masterplan providing the capacity for 1200-

1300 students, he says.

The Ministry of Education’s acting head of

sector enablement and support, Steve Stuart,

explains that the new classrooms at Hornby

High are part of the Christchurch Schools

Rebuild programme, which is investing

$1.137b to remodel, rebuild, and repair 115

schools in the Christchurch region.

“The programme is repairing earthquake

damage caused by the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes, fixing weather tightness issues,

strengthening buildings where required and

upgrading schools’ teaching spaces,” Mr

Stuart says.

“By the end of the programme, more than

80 per cent of state school teaching spaces in

greater Christchurch will meet high quality

standards for lighting, ventilation, heating and

acoustics, and all will be equipped to support

the latest digital technology. “We aim to create

flexible learning spaces that will support each

school’s vision for raising achievement for

students. We have spent $2m on eight new

classrooms for Year 7 and 8 students at Hornby

High School. Building works are planned

to take place in three major stages, while

minimising student disruption and allowing

the school to stay open throughout.”

Mr Sutton says the Ministry has been

“awesome” to work with and all the schools

around the city involved in the redevelopment

programme are co-operating with each other.

Shoppers Share Their Views

With its fast-growing shopping area and other key developments, Hornby is attracting a wide diversity of people from Hornby

and further afield. Western News spoke to some of them out and about in the Hornby shopping area to find out their opinions

on the changes that have been taking place.

LEFT TO RIGHT Jason Mendoza and Don Don Tanggap, the Bedi family, and Cherie, Josh and Alex Cooper are just a few of the local residents who love shopping at The Hub.

A Rolleston resident, Pip Muir shops

regularly in Hornby as it is on her way

home from work. She thinks the changes

are good for the area and says it’s good to

see more shops in The Hub. She is also

happy to see the other new developments

taking place around Hornby.

A New Brighton resident, but formerly

from Hornby, June Tyrell visits Hornby

twice a week to collect children from

school and uses the opportunity to visit

The Hub. She says the shops are looking

very attractive and she can’t wait for it to

be finished.

Raj, his wife Nimi Bedi moved down

from Auckland almost six months

ago, and are living in Rolleston. They

followed their son, Dushan who had

come to Christchurch to help with the

rebuild, bringing his wife Sonia and son

Anhad. The family comes to Hornby

to shop almost every day and say the

changes are long overdue. Raj is a

Justice of the Peace and volunteers at the

Hornby Citizens Advice Bureau.

A visitor from Kaikoura, this was the

third time Julie Syme had been to The

Hub. She says the changes are “quite

refreshing” and she likes seeing the

changes and the growth in Hornby. She

appreciates the “good signage” in The

Hub and says she will be back.

Cherie, Josh and Alex Cooper live in

Rolleston but come to Hornby “all the

time,” Cherie says. She and her sons

enjoy The Hub – Cherie likes all the

new shops and the boys like the slushies

at Wendy’s, the sushi and Couplands

Bakery. They also enjoy letting off steam

at Mega Air, the indoor trampoline park

in Carmen Road.

Prebbleton resident Sandra Fairbairn

visits Hornby once a week. She says

the new developments are going to

revolutionise the area. She believes they

are good for the local people and the

economy, and says there is a tremendous

cross-section of businesses coming in.

Hornby resident Debbie Dick loves

shopping at the new mall, and says she is

so pleased to have the new food court there.

There are a lot of fast food restaurants

around the mall, and it was about time they

put in a food court, Debbie says.

Spotted shopping in The Hub, Jason

Mendoza and Don Don Tanggap arrived

from the Philippines around two months

ago. They are working as upholsterers at

Sleepyhead and living at nearby Awatea.

They like shopping at the Hub for the

“good prices,” especially at Pak ‘n’ Save.

Iconic mall heart of Hornby shopping

While Hornby boasts a huge range of retail

outlets, including many of New Zealand’s

major brand names, the heart of the suburb’s

shopping environment is undoubtedly its

iconic mall – The Hub Hornby.

Providing a central shopping spot for residents since

it opened in 1976 as Hornby

Mall, the complex has

undergone many changes

over the last 40 years.

Originally, it was housed in a

number of separate buildings,

but the last 20 years have

seen the businesses in the

complex come together to

operate under one roof, with

a $7.5 million redevelopment

taking place in 1998.

The 1980s and 1990s saw

the mall grow in popularity,

taking on a more family focus,

though today as an integral

part of the community, it

caters for all demographics.

Another major refurbishment took place in 2005 with

a new architectural look and a new colour scheme, and

the following year the name was changed from Hornby

Mall to The Hub Hornby, bringing a mixed response

from local residents.

One notable feature, centre manager Jason Marsden

points out, is that The Hub Hornby is one of very few

locally owned shopping malls in the South Island, and as

such has developed its own distinct culture.

Prior to the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, expansion

work had been planned for the centre, Mr Marsden says,

and that work began in 2012.

Hornby was fortunate to escape major earthquake

damage, and with no structural damage sustained, The

Hub was only closed for half a day after the February 22

event, he says.

All the buildings are now 100-plus per cent of code.

Among the many developments that have been

occurring over the last 15 years, one of the most

significant was the opening of the new Farmers store

covering 6000 sqm over two levels in September 2014.

The development, which was completed in March this

year, also includes six speciality shops located at the

entrance to Farmers.

Providing greater convenience for Hub shoppers will

be the installation of a ramp to connect the two levels

of roof-top car parking, creating a flow between them.

It will be accessible from the upper level of the Farmers.

A new internal retail precinct following the line of

Chalmers Street and joining the new Farmers with the

northern entrance is also now open.

“This creates a flow right through the centre of The

Hub,” Mr Marsden says.

Following on from that will be the opening of the

northern atrium, which will become the main entrance

to the complex. This is due for completion in mid-

November.

The new food court space is also now accessible with

tenants opening as they complete their fit-outs,” Mr

Marsden says.

“This is an

architecturally

d e s i g n e d

contemporary

space offering

different types of

seating, depending

on what people

want. In addition

to the existing

food outlets, there

will be more

opening up giving

our shoppers even

greater choice.”

The other

advantage for

Hub shoppers, Mr

Marsden says, is that it is just a five-minute walk from

several large retailers in the area, namely Dressmart, The

Warehouse and Toy World, with Mitre 10 and Harvey

Norman also close by.

“Hornby is becoming known for its retail. And there is

good development still happening, with new businesses

still opening up. The stars are aligned, it’s a great location,

there’s a strong, vibrant, growing community, so we are

on the ascendancy.”

Today, The Hub Hornby offers shoppers an enticing

mix of retail and service outlets, including the major

banks – a central point where locals and visitors can

browse and shop in a friendly, community-minded

environment.

Focus on achieving goals at

Hornby fitness centre

SOUTHERN VIEW

For Hornby residents, there’s no

reason not to stay fit when the

Hornby fitness studio Anytime

Fitness is open 24 hours a day,

plus being conveniently located in the

heart of the Hornby shopping area, it is

easy to access too.

At just over 17 months old, this bright,

modern, unisex gym offers facilities that

are in tip-top condition and very clean.

There are eight friendly staff members,

including five personal trainers, who have

members’ best interests at heart.

Anytime Fitness offers a range of group

fitness classes, as well as virtual classes,

with the focus being on helping people

achieve their health and fitness goals, says

manager Chris.

On joining the club, new members

are given one hour free with a personal

trainer, who will show them how to use

the equipment and give them exercises to

get them started, she says.

“We like to work on people,” Chris

says. “We ask new members if they’ve

belonged to a fitness club before and we

talk to them about what their goals are and

see if their plans for what they want to do

at the gym measure up realistically with

these goals.

“We nurture our members, and if they

haven’t been to the gym regularly we

follow up by text or email to make sure

everything is alright with them, and help

them get back on track if necessary.”

This can include a motivation session

with a personal trainer and a free six to

eight-week programme, depending on

their lack of use.

“After all, they have paid to join the gym,

so we want to show them we appreciate

that and encourage them to keep up their

fitness regime by giving them a kick-start

if they need it,” Chris says.

Prospective members who are not

sure about joining up are offered a free,

no-obligation seven-day trial on seven

consecutive days. As of September 1, the

club has also introduced a new month-tomonth

flexible contract.

Members of Anytime Fitness Hornby

are all ages and from all walks of life, with

a lot of families belonging to the club.

“One person will join, and they enjoy

it so much they tell their family members

about it and they come along too. Those

referrals are a testament to how good our

club is,” Chris says.

The club also runs a number of social

events and activities during the year,

which gives members the opportunity to

socialise and get to know each other.

Members of Anytime Fitness Hornby

can also access all five of the Anytime

Fitness centres in Christchurch, as well as

the other 24 centres around New Zealand,

and the thousands across the world.

trial at Anytime Fitness Hornby, phone

Karate Club Sends Student to

Japan for Championship

With the title of the So-

Kyokuishin World Karate

Championship Tournament

in Japan just around the

corner, Steve Burt is currently immersed

in intensive training with his instructor,

Sensei Mark Webster at the Hornby

based Kyokushin Karate Club. Next

month Steve will head to Shizuoka-city to

compete against the world’s top fighters.

To reach the finals - held in Japan on

22 and 23 October - Steve won several

bouts in order to qualify for the world

championship.

With a 3rd Kyu Green Belt Black

Tab and having won two match fights

in Milton within the past year, Steve

is well equipped to take on some of

the world’s most experienced fighters

in Japan next month. Just one amongst

a hundred from over 50 countries

around the globe, Steve has put in the

hard yards over the years to reach this

exciting point.

Since being captivated by Jean-

Claude Van Damme’s fighting skills in

action movies as a young boy, Steve

has cultivated his passion to emulate his

hero. Growing up in Karamea, however,

training opportunities were few and far

between he fostered his ambition for

martial arts through teaching himself

the basics from books.

When he was 15 his dad got a job

driving milk tankers to and from

Hokitika where Steve knew there were

weekly karate classes. After some

careful negotiations with his mother

Steve struck a deal to join his father

on his weekly trips so he could attend

karate classes on Sundays.

This routine of long distance classes

continued until Steve moved to Nelson

two and a half years later and karate has

been a pillar in his life ever since.

In anticipation of the tournament in

Japan next month the 34 year old has

spent the past three months in intensive

training with his eye firmly on the prize.

Competition is fierce and with it

comes unflinching commitment for this

aspiring karate master. On top of training

in the regular classes on Mondays and

Thursdays every week with the rest of

the club, Steve spends an additional 1-4

hours 5-6 days a week in one-on-one

training with Sensei Webster.

“A typical session begins with 10

minutes of skipping to warm up followed

by dynamic stretching. Shadow sparring

is designed to develop speed, which is

followed by ten three minute rounds

on a heavy bag, and ends with 15-20

minutes of stamina work like shuttle

runs with pyramid sets of push ups, situps

and jump squats.”

With unwavering support from his

club, Sensei and his family, Steve’s

girlfriend is of course his number one

fan and trains by his side at the biweekly

club classes whom Steve says is “a great

support and motivator.”

“I hope to do my family, my Sensei,

my Dojo and MOKK NZ family proud.”

“Martial arts has always been a major

part of my life and it always will be.”

More than just an effective form

of self-defense, Kyokushin Karate is

an ultimate form of fitness training.

Providing an intense, full-body workout

that improves stamina, speed, power,

flexibility and pure strength, it’s also a

great workout for the mind and improves

self-confidence.

weekly classes and monthly rates for

kids, adults and families, visit www.

Post-quake residential growth

a boon for Hornby

There has been a significant residential

movement to the south and west

of Christchurch city following the

earthquakes that severely damaged

large swathes of the eastern suburbs, and

Hornby has been a “huge beneficiary”

of this movement, says regional director

for REINZ Canterbury/Westland/Nelson/

Marlborough, Jim Davis.

“Hornby has taken off as a result, with

the new shops and everything else that

has gone on contributing to this, and

with people moving to where there was

employment,” Mr Davis says.

“Following the earthquakes there was

an initial increase in employment right

through this part of Christchurch. Hornby

has benefitted because it is an affordable

suburb to buy homes in, which has brought

a lot of people here.”

REINZ figures show that over the

months of May, June and July 2015,

residential sales in Hornby and the

surrounding suburbs of Wigram,

Sockburn, Aidanfield and Halswell were

as follows: May, 54 sales, with a median

price of $470,000; June, 65 sales with a

median price of $520,000; and July, 66

sales with a median price of $484,000. In

the same three months this year, sales were

as follows: May, 74 sales with a median

price of $536,500; June, 66 sales with a

median price of $469,250; July, 57 sales

with a median price of $482,500.

The improvements in roading, such as

the Southern Motorway and the by-pass

north to Russley Road, have also benefitted

Hornby, Mr Davis says.

New subdivisions in adjacent areas are

contributing to Hornby’s growth, too.

“Rolleston has grown at a huge rate and

people living there stop off in Hornby

for shopping on their way to and from

Christchurch, and this has added to the

interest in the suburb.”

Mr Davis believes the retail

developments have brought a change of

image to Hornby and people are looking at

the suburb differently now.

“It’s not the outpost of Christchurch that

it once was.”

On the city side of Hornby, Wigram

has also seen major growth following the

earthquakes, including the sub-division at

Wigram Skies on the former air force base,

which is being developed by Ngai Tahu

Property.

“South-west Christchurch has long been

an identified growth corridor for the city

and Wigram Skies provided the impetus

for the development of this region in the

post-earthquake era,” says development

manager Wigram Skies Scott Johansson.

“In the earlier stages of the development

there was demand from a number of red

zone residents. Anecdotally, there were

also a lot of sales coming from people who

had sold their existing dwellings to red

zoners and then upgraded to a new house

at Wigram.”

Another sub-division, Awatea, which is a

public-private housing project comprising

affordable homes, is being constructed on

Crown-owned land in Wigram by Fletcher

Residential. The 11.5-hectare site was

land owned by the NZ Transport Agency

and left over from the construction of the

Southern Motorway. When completed,

the development will have a total of 238

homes, with 40 per cent of them priced

below $400,000.

Residents from these developments,

and other sub-divisions further west, such

as Longhurst and Knights Stream Park in

Halswell will potentially bring hundreds

more customers into the Hornby retail

and business area, contributing to its

continuing growth, Mr Davis says.

INTERNATIONAL FLAIR

WITH HAIR

SOUTHERN VIEW

It is almost forty years ago that Michael

Turner trained as a hairdresser, learning the

skills of the trade while working in London

and France.

In 1993, Michael moved to Perth in Western

Australia where he set up a salon at Murdoch

University, before establishing an up-market full

service salon at Mount Lawley in Perth.

Michael has always loved hairdressing. His

enthusiasm and expertise led to his appointment as

the Director of the International Hair Stylists Society

in Australia, and board member on the Hairdressers

Registration Board and Hairdressers’ Guild in

Western Australia.

“Michael is a passionate hairdresser who gets

twitchy if he doesn’t cut hair for two days,” laughs his

wife, Angela.

When the couple’s daughter, met and married

a New Zealander, Angela and Michael had no

intention of living in this country. However, nine

years of travelling between the two countries, to

spend time with the family, led to the decision to

move across the ditch.

“We love Christchurch and being close to our

family,” says Angela.

Michael worked within the Just Cuts organisation

until the opportunity arose this year for the couple

to purchase a Just Cuts franchise. At the end of

July, they opened Just Cuts Hornby, specialists in

haircuts.

As owner operators, Angela takes care of the

operational side of the business and Michael is Team

Leader on the salon floor. This allows Michael to do

what he loves – cutting hair. He also uses his talents

and experience to ensure an efficiently run salon.

Michael is passionate about hair and the industry,

striving for excellence with every client’s haircut.

“Finding a hairdresser who can cut properly is

not always easy,” explains Michael who takes time to

pass on his knowledge to all his staff so they add to

their skill base.

In Australia, Michael and Angela took on

hairdressing apprentices. Michael has a Certificate

for Hairdresser Training so as the business grows

they plan to train their own hairdressers.

Michael and his team are fully trained in hair care

products too with the salon stocking the Justice hair

product range. This is exclusive to Just Cuts and

includes shampoos, conditioners, hair treatments

and hair grooming products. These are affordably

priced yet high quality so extremely good for the

hair and they are not tested on animals.

Angela and Michael stress the importance of

using the right hair product to ensure healthy hair.

If keen to look after your hair or you have a concern

about your hair or scalp, pop in and have a chat with

Michael or one of the team. They can offer technical

advice and recommend a suitable product for each

hair and scalp condition.

Just Cuts is located in the beautifully modernised

Hornby Hub, at shop 50 which is close to Farmers.

No appointment is necessary.

MAZDA

Price $57,295

Dimensions Length, 5365mm; width,

1850mm; height, 1821mm

Configuration Five-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

3198cc, 147kW, 470Nm,

six-speed automatic.

Performance 0-100km/h, 9.6sec

Fuel Usage 9.2l/100km

When you look at all the

product Mazda has to

offer new car buyers,

especially here in

New Zealand, there’s one vehicle which

looks out of place – that is the BT50

light commercial ute.

I say that because Mazda has a huge

manufacturing emphasis on cars and

sport utility vehicles, and the line-up it

has now is focused heavily on providing

buyers with quality product fit for

purpose.

Nevertheless, to be profitable and

competitive in today’s global market,

companies which have utility vehicles

are experiencing a buoyancy like never

before, more so here in New Zealand.

Last year Ford’s Ranger utility was the

biggest selling vehicle overall, and that has

never happened in this country before.

Mazda have capitalised on Ranger’s

success as well, the BT50 is a sister

vehicle; while the shape is different, the

platform and engine are the same.

BY ROSS KIDDIE

The BT50 has just had a substantial

upgrade both outside and inside. Major

exterior changes include a new grille

and lights up front, while rear tail light

assemblies have had significant garnish

changes. Inside, there are new seat

coverings, and an upgrade on the plastic

trim elements.

According to Mazda the changes give

the BT50 a more aggressive, muscular

look and by my reckoning, it is still

one of the best looking utes in the New

Zealand market.

Elsewhere, the BT50 is much the

same rugged ute as it ever has been. It

lands in a range of 13 variants priced

from $35,295 to $57,295. All have a

3.2-litre five-cylinder engine, and there

are the usual choices between single

cab, Freestyle cab and double-cab, two

and four-wheel-drive. And there are

options between manual or automatic

transmission, although it’s fair to say,

most are autos.

The test vehicle was the range topping

GSX double cab automatic. Incidentally,

that model with manual transmission is

available at $55,295.

I’ve often written about how much I

enjoy five-cylinder engines, they have

a characteristic of their own, and in the

BT50, it stands out for its smooth and

rattle-free operation.

It is a twin-camshaft, 20-valve unit

which is rated at 147kW and 470Nm,

it is a high technology engine which

offers low maintenance costs thanks to a

new capped price servicing initiative by

Mazda New Zealand.

It also has the benefit of low fuel usage.

Mazda claim a 9.2-litre per 100km

(31mpg) combined cycle average for

the BT50. My time with the test vehicle

constantly listed around 10l/100km

(28mpg) with an instantaneous figure

of 7.7l/100km (36mpg) available at a

100km/h cruise (engine speed 1800rpm).

Power is harnessed seamlessly through

the six-speeder. The ratios are a wide

spread of what is required for low range

work as well as broadening to promote

those satisfactory fuel usage figures. The

driveline is smooth, hiding well the tough

mechanical elements that have high

demands, such as a 3500kg towing figure.

Naturally, the four-wheel-drive system

has a low ratio transfer case, it can be

manipulated by a console-mounted

switch. I didn’t do a lot of off-road work,

but I did tackle a long shingle incline

deep in the Malvern Hills. The BT50 is

in its element on rutted road surfaces,

the suspension is supple, dealing to

bumps and corrugations, and providing

a cushioned ride.

Bearing in mind that the BT50 still

has a leaf-spring located live rear axle,

the suspension engineers have done well

to create the civilised ride along with

the load bearing properties needed in

the traditional ute. The BT50 also gets

a high ground clearance of 237mm,

which means cross-country travel can be

tackled with confidence.

The BT50 is at home on the seal as it

is off-road. I took the test car on a long

highway drive and it is relaxing and

inviting to drive. Such is the civilised way

it rides, it is easy to head into a corner

with more speed on than realised, so it

must be remembered there are some

cornering limitations.

In terms of on-road performance,

a standstill to 100km/h time of 9.6sec

is pretty useful for a big, heavy vehicle

which weighs in at just over two-tonne.

With the mid-range torque figure it will

also blast thorough a highway overtake

without effort.

Well-known business pleased to be back in Hornby

After nearly a decade away, one of

Christchurch’s most well-known

motor vehicle parts businesses

has returned to Hornby.

As of September 1, Butler Auto Mart

is back trading in its Brynley Street

premises, from where it had previously

operated for 20 years.

Managing director of the family owned

and operated business, Tony Butler, says

over the past nine-plus years he has been

approached by many Hornby locals asking

store manager Edward Butler, who has

been working in the industry for some 20

years and has a well-established reputation

for his knowledge and expertise.

“We sell the things that make the car run,

like engine parts and wheel bearings, our

range is very extensive, and we can source

anything, nationwide and worldwide.

“If something a customer wants is not in

stock we will go to any lengths necessary

to find it. Our customers quickly realise

that they do not need to shop around

for the business to return, and after careful

consideration it was decided to move back

to a “booming Hornby”.

The building at 4 Brynley Street, which

the Butlers own, has been extensively

renovated over the last three months and

stocked with an extensive range of auto

parts brought in from its other branches,

which were bursting at the seams.

“We specialise in car parts for all makes

and models, particularly classic cars. We

can supply parts for cars from the early

1900 models up to the present day,” says

– if it is available we will get it at the

best possible price; if we can’t get what

our customer wants, then it will not be

available anywhere,” Edward says.

“Customers just need to leave their phone

number and we will get back to them.”

Butler Auto Mart has two other

branches in Christchurch – 407 Colombo

St, Sydenham and The Super Store at 261

Stanmore Road, Richmond, which started

in 1975.

“We are very pleased to be back in

Hornby,” Edward says.

Project offers affordable homes

for rent and purchase

An innovative Christchurch

housing project is being

developed in Lesley Keast

Place Hornby. A collaborative

partnership between the New Zealand

Housing Foundation, Salvation Army,

Abbeyfield, Housing Plus Charitable

Trust, the Rata Foundation, Christchurch

City Council and Government its aim

is to provide new, affordable living

accommodation for low-income single

people and families, both for rent and

purchase.

The project has seen a number

of properties being completed and

occupied over the last year or so and

there are more to come.

“The whole concept for the

development is about creating a

community with a mix of incomes and

ages, so there’s a balance,” says project

manager for the New Zealand Housing

Foundation in Christchurch, Bill King.

Constructed on behalf of the

nationwide Abbeyfield New Zealand

organisation, Abbeyfield House at

number 6 Lesley Keast Place, was opened

in November 2015. A communal-style

accommodation facility comprising

12 studios, each with en-suite, it is

especially suited to older people who are

on their own – either single or widowed,

and want to keep some independence

while having company around when

they feel they need it.

The development was planned prior

to the Christchurch earthquakes and

wasn’t built in response to those events,

Mr King says. However, with the quakes

creating an increase in housing demand

from across the city, all 12 studios were

taken up promptly, and there is a long

waiting list.

Also part of the Hornby development

are eleven smaller homes, which will be

constructed as rental properties for the

Housing Plus Charitable Trust and will

be completed and occupied by the end

of 2017.

A key plank of the Housing

Foundation’s programme is the shared

ownership model, which was launched

in Auckland nine years ago. Brand-new

three- and four-bedroom homes are built

on the basis that the occupants purchase

a share in the home in conjunction with

the foundation.

“The share they take will depend on

what they can afford. For example, the

purchasers may take a 75 per cent share

and the charitable trust the other 25 per

cent,” Mr King says.

“The scheme is aimed at families who

can’t quite make it in terms of raising a

sufficient deposit or afford repayments

on a full bank mortgage. They have the

opportunity to eventually purchase their

homes outright.”

The foundation has built five of

these three and four-bedroom homes

in Hornby for first-home buyers, and

the contract has just been let to build

a further five, which will be due for

completion in March/April 2017, Mr

King says.

In order to inform local communities

about the opportunities for potential

home ownership being provided, the

foundation contacts larger employers

and other organisations to let them know

when developments are coming up, and

this approach has brought a positive

response, he says.

Further along Lesley Keast Place are

10 Salvation Army houses that were

delivered for the organisation by the

Housing Foundation.

These new, two and three-bedroom

homes are occupied by people that

were affected by the earthquakes and

fulfilled the Salvation Army’s social

housing criteria, acting manager for the

Salvation Army’s social housing, Greg

Coyle says.

“It’s a mixed group and the idea is for

them to develop a sense of community

by getting to know each other and

support each other,” Mr Coyle says.

“And if any of them get into social

difficulty or distress, the Salvation Army

can bring its considerable experience in

to help the situation.”

Business park bringing jobs and growth to Hornby

LEFT TO RIGHT Artist’s impression of how Islington Square will look / Waterloo BP Lot 110 / Recreational facilities for community use are included in the new business park development.

An integral part of the Hornby

community, Hornby High

School, which opened in

1975, is itself about to undergo

significant developments.

All the present school buildings, apart

from the auditorium and music school,

which will have a facelift, are to be

demolished and replaced with a brandnew

complex of buildings. Work on

the $24-million project is due to start

in March/April 2017 with completion

expected in late 2018.

The development of a new business

park in the heart of Hornby is bringing

a new era of employment and business

activity to the area, while retaining

elements of its rich and colourful history

– the Waterloo Business Park is located

on the site once occupied by the Islington

Freezing Works and there are plans to

incorporate some of its Victorian-era

buildings within the new complex.

Construction activity got underway

in 2013; however, the concept for

the park was well over a decade in

the planning, assistant development

manager Joel Webber says. During

that time, community engagement,

participation and integration were key

considerations in the evolution, planning

and development of Waterloo Business

Park, he says.

The park will have a total of 104 lots of

development land, and once completed

will be home to around 100 individual

businesses, including retail.

“Sub-division of development land

is due to be completed by mid-2017,

while our convenience-retail focused

development, Islington Square, on the

site of the old Islington meat processing

plant will be constructed and delivered

in phases over an additional two to five

years,” Mr Webber says.

The typical profile of businesses that

have committed to Waterloo Business

Park are well-established, owneroccupier

businesses, Mr Webber says,

with a number having bought multiple

lots and consolidated them into single

lots for their specific requirements.

These include Hamilton Jet, which has

consolidated five lots into one lot of 7.5ha,

Connetics, which has consolidated three

lots into one lot of 5.5ha and Cardinal

Logistics, which has consolidated four

lots into one lot of 2.5ha.

“We have noticed that the majority of

the businesses that have committed to

Waterloo Business Park are dominated

by freight/logistics/distribution, light

manufacturing and food production

industries.

“As a sub-set of those businesses,

we’re seeing strong trends representing

businesses that are relocating from

Christchurch’s eastern industrial areas

to take advantage of such factors as the

superior geotechnical ground conditions

in the wider Hornby area, the strong

growth in Christchurch’s western corridor

and the superior roading infrastructure,

vehicular access and proximity to both

Christchurch International Airport and

Lyttelton Port.

“We are also seeing strong interest from

businesses that are outgrowing premises

in the immediate area. They have a high

degree of confidence and comfort in the

broader Hornby industrial catchment and

will only consider relocating within its

confines.”

Mr Webber acknowledges Hornby’s

transition from traditional primary

industries into a more services-oriented

model, as is reflected in the take-up at the

business park.

PROUD TO BE PART OF THE

CHANGING FACE OF HORNBY


SOUTHERN VIEW Tuesday September 20 2016 27

Building a unique house is affordable

Myles Laing started working

on building sites at the age of

fourteen, helping his father

clean up rubbish, lift materials

and carry out other basic jobs. Over time,

he picked up many tricks of the trade.

Myles has always had a passion for

building and creating unique designs and

initially wished to become an architect.

After leaving school, he decided to put

his efforts into the more practical side of

building by completing an apprenticeship

in carpentry, gaining experience by

working for one of Christchurch’s most

prestigious architectural building firms.

“I was able to work on a number of

architectural buildings and although

many were stunning, they would be

unaffordable for many people. I wanted

to provide uniquely designed homes that

would stand out from other houses but

without the huge price tag that would

normally go with them.”

Myles decided to join the family

business, Laing Properties, ultimately

creating the Myles Laing brand. This

fitted with other initiatives the parent

company was engaged in, while

broadening its range of services offered

in the marketplace.

Two years ago, Myles created the

Decisive range of simplistic modern

designs consisting of affordable

architecturally designed homes. In the

middle of this year, the Eminent range

was introduced which reflects sleek

modern designs with a traditional spin.

Both ranges are appealing with an

efficient use of space while capitalising

on the opportunity for outdoor living.

Along with loving the design process

and building element, Myles really enjoys

working with clients, adding suggestions

and more importantly listening to what

they want.

“While I like creating something

different and not the norm, it’s what the

client wants that’s important, something

that is very easy to achieve if you listen

to them,” adds Myles.

Myles’ technical background is an

added strength. He can draw from the

client exactly what they need and would

like, helping him to come up with a

concept they really love and that fits

with their budget. Rather than the client

engaging an architect directly to produce

a design that could be way out of their

financial reach, he is able to work a

design that will suit them.

As Construction Manager for Laing

Properties, Myles project manages the

houses built under the Myles Laing

brand, ensuring quality workmanship

and involving the clients throughout the

process so there are no surprises, and

clients are completely satisfied.

The company builds across Canterbury

with a steady increase in builds in the

Selwyn district.

If you would like to talk to Myles about

how he can create a unique and striking

house design for you, he can be contacted

by telephone on 349 4977 or by email at:

Looking

good at

the races

IT’S FUN to strut your stuff

and have a good time at the

races, but as Vania Bailey says,

don’t forget etiquette.

“You don’t want to be a show

pony. You need to look polished

but most importantly you need

to feel comfortable in your own

skin.

“Don’t reveal too much.

Remember the rules – if you

are showing off a bit of cleavage

then wear a longer skirt. If you

have a long split in your dress

don’t show off your chest. Don’t

have everything on show – be

discreet.

“Accessories are important to

pull your outfit together – shoes,

short gloves and a matching

fascinator or hat.

“If you are going to wear

something fitted make sure you

wear the right garments underneath

so there are no outlines or

bumps.

“If you decide on a spray tan,

have a trial a few weeks before.

You don’t want to turn orange

on the day. Book your hair, nails

and makeup in advance.”

school and Lady Constance

Stewart’s involvement with

the Canterbury Aero Club are

explored.

It also looks at tourism pioneer

Rodolph Wigley, who founded

the Mt Cook Group that

later included Mount Cook

Airlines.

The exhibition also features a

virtual reality in-flight experience

and takes a look at its

promotion posters, videos and

examples of how the airline has

adapted over 75 years.

It won best exhibition at the

SOUTHERN VIEW

Our core

business at

Cashmere High

School is student

learning and

achievement.

This education

is based on our

core values,

and learning

experiences that

can go beyond

the classroom

to help craft

our students

into confident,

well-rounded,

high-achieving,

communityfocused

citizens.

Our values-based education in action

The four core values of Cashmere High

School are: Citizenship, Opportunity,

Vibrancy and Excellence (known as

“COVE” for short). These values are built

into our school’s culture and programmes

as we seek to develop not only the intellect

but also the character of our students. We

provide the opportunities to promote and

live out these values.

Citizenship is lived out by our students

through a range of actions, such as: our

student-organised “Shave for a Cure”

which this year raised approximately

$12,000 for the Leukaemia and Blood

Cancer Organisation; raising over $8000 in

the annual World Vision 40 Hour Famine;

volunteering with the UC Student Army to

restore Willowbank’s Takahe enclosure;

Cashmere students in action: Cashmere Volunteer Army, above;

partaking in “Shave for a Cure”, right; and in the Mud Run,

below right; and collecting for the City Mission appeal, below

left.

our school’s Peer Mentoring and Peer

Leaders programmes for seniors to mentor

and support our younger students; raising

money and donations for the Christchurch

City Mission; leading at our community

memorial services for ANZAC Day; active

participation in the annual NZ Model United

Nations; and students forming teams to

challenge themselves in the fun annual

Mud Run. There are always so many

vibrant opportunities for our students to

develop their character, social skills and

sense of citizenship.

Sustaining

leadership

Cashmere High School’s student-led

eco-Driver programme has already been

recognised by winning the prestigious

international Zayed Future Energy Award

for 2016.

The work of these students has

now been awarded the Environment

Canterbury and Ngai Tahu Sustainability

Group Award for 2016, in recognition

of youth leadership in the area of

sustainability.

Our school is already going solar, with

100 solar panels installed on the roofs of

some classroom blocks. This has been

funded by the prize money from the

Zayed Future Energy Award. The school

is planning to install a wind turbine, and

has also purchased some innovative

kinetic energy floor tiles, all initiatives that

provide leadership roles for our students,

reduces energy consumption and

provides positive educational modelling.

Wearable arts stun

As part of our school’s

Inter-House competitions,

our students designed and

made some stunning creative

entries for our school’s

Fashion and Wearable Arts

Competition. Under the

theme of ‘Twisted Disney’

students showcased some

outstanding

entries. Other

events in

our school’s

Inter-House

competition

include: an

athletics

day, spelling

competition,

Lip Sync, cross

country run

and House

Olympics.

Winter sporting successes

As the winter sports season comes to a

close there are a range of achievements

the school will be celebrating, such as:

our rock climbers who won both the Boys’

and Girls’ South Island Championship

titles; Boys Football teams winning the

Regional Junior Title and runners-up in the

1st XI competition; our Boys Epee Team

came 3rd at the New Zealand Fencing

Tournament; our Badminton Boys Senior

Team won the Canterbury Premier competition

title; and various teams enjoyed great

success at the many national tournaments

they attended across the country.

www.cashmere.school.nz

Hitting all the right notes

Early in Term 3, Cashmere took part in the Southern Jam

Jazz Competition in Blenheim, entering two jazz combos,

‘Blue Trumpet’ and ‘Jam Sandwich’. Both groups won

gold awards and Blue Trumpet also won the best combo

at the festival and best group overall. Blue Trumpet were

also awarded best original composition written by Callum

McInnes, and best Jazz pianist (Finn Richwood), while

Jam Sandwich were awarded best Saxophone soloist

(Aidan McCulloch).

Cashmere sisters Chena Rae (Year 12) and Mana Rae

(Year 9) are part of a chamber music group named South

Island Regional Finalists which gained them entry to the

national finals to be held at the Auckland Town Hall. Being

selected for this event from a field of over 700 groups

nationwide is quite an achievement.

Our Barbershop Girls Chorus and Girls Quartet (Jessica

Tozer, Nina Noble, Emily-Jane Stockman and Emma

Hartshaw) won the top prizes at the Canterbury Regional

Barbershop Competition during Term 2.

Every year Cashmere has several students audition

for the New Zealand Secondary Schools’ Symphony

Orchestra. This year we had six very talented students

make it into the Orchestra: Tom Fastier (Bass), Monica

Hoetjes (Clarinet), Sam Gibbs (Percussion), Briana Steven

(Percussion), Nina Krauss (Harp) and Cheena Rae (Flute

& Piccolo).

Ensuring a safe work place

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

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

Effective treatment for many

types of pain

Complementary medicine is becoming

increasingly sought after in New Zealand

as people become aware of the many

different methods of treating pain and ill

health that are available here.

Christchurch-based Chinese health

practitioner Lan Xiao has developed a

method of treatment, which she says has

as an immediate affect on a wide variety of

pains and health conditions. It is known

as ‘acupuncture without needles’.

Lan describes it as being similar to

reflexology in that the problem area on

the body is determined through pressure,

but is much more accurate.

Trained as a medical practitioner in

China, Lan came to New Zealand in 1992

and began practising acupuncture in

1995. From that discipline she created her

acupuncture without needles, and uses

it to treat people of all ages with many

different types of pain in all parts of the

body. This can include arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury.

“For example, the treatment has been

very successful for people who have

painful joints caused by arthritis,” Lan

says.

Acupuncture without needles is also

effective in restoring energy levels,

she says.

“As people age their energy is reduced,

and this can lead to other health

problems. The acupuncture without

needles treatment is like the body’s

battery being charged up again, so their

energy levels are restored, which in turn

helps overcome their health problems.”

Lan also uses it to treat depression

and anxiety, and says it can help with

addiction problems as well.

“After the treatment the person has no

cravings – because it treats the cause of

the addiction.”

She says the results are immediate,

though people may need several

treatments, depending on the extent

of their health problem, and while it

is slightly painful for few moments,

everyone can tolerate it.

Lan Xiao’s website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes

videos of people whose health problems

have been overcome after receiving the

treatment.

Her clinic is located at 108 Sawyers

Arms Road, and her hours are Monday,

Wednesday and Friday from 12pm to

5pm. To discuss your health issues or

make an appointment, phone 323 4168

or 027 231 8388.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Research

Supports

Eye Health

Nutritional researchers have discovered a range

of nutrients that are essential for eye health. Some

of the most essential nutrients that have been

shown to protect and even improve eye function

are:

Selenium, is a trace mineral that is low in

N.Z. soils and therefore in many of our foods.

Researchers believe selenium may help prevent

cataracts, macular degeneration (the leading cause

of impaired vision in older people) and may also

improve dry eyes and general eye health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage of the

population are low in. Zinc has been shown to

help protect the eyes from the damaging effects

of light as well as slow vision loss due to macular

degeneration.

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Beta-carotene

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper have potent

antioxidant ability and help protect the eyes from

damage

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing nutrients

that have been shown in landmark research to

not only provide potent eye protection but may

even help reverse some of the signs of age-related

macular degeneration (AMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent

antioxidants may help protect the lens and retina

from damage and reduce the risk of cataracts. They

also may help improve blood supply to the eye,

strengthen the small capillaries of the eye and may

help improve night vision, may alleviate many eye

ailments including eye fatigue that may be caused

by reading, driving and computers.

Eyebright may help normalise eye pressure and

reduce eye allergies.

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential for

correct eye function. It may also have a detoxifying

affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection. It

provides many nutrients, is rich in oligomeric

proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that are potent

antioxidants that may protect eyesight.

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic amount

should provide comprehensive eye protection, may

slow and possibly even help reverse eye damage

that could lead to loss of vision. All these nutrients

are available in an economical one a day easy to

swallow capsule.

Researchers found it:

• Helps stop fat being made & stored in the body

• Suppresses appetite & cravings. Feel fuller for longer

• Increases energy levels & lean muscle mass

• Increases Serotonin levels in the brain, especially good for

University confirms that in the

treatment of arthritis, exercise and

physical activity has many benefits.

• Regular exercise helps keep

muscles around the joints strong,

decrease bone loss and control joint

swelling and pain.

• Strengthening the muscles

surrounding affected joints helps

to relieve pressure on the joint and

cartilage.

• Regular exercise helps replenish

lubrication of the joint cartilage and

reduces stiffness and pain.

• Lack of physical activity is

associated with increased muscle

weakness, joint stiffness, reduced

range of motion and fatigue

• Exercise needs to be directed at

the entire body and not just the joints

that are affected with arthritis.

The golden rule for joint health -

Keep moving!

The more you move

the less pain and

stiffness you will have.

Miracle Weight

Loss Fruit

An extract of a small pumpkinlike

fruit called Garcinia

Cambogia from India &

Asia has shown itself to

greatly assist weight

management & overall

health. In fact many

have found it to

increase fat loss by

2 to 3 times greater

than normal. T.V. Dr.

Oz has said it is the most

effective & fastest working natural

supplement to support weight loss.

Even without exercise & diet

changes many have found it beneficial,

although even better & quicker results

are often obtained with extra exercise

& an improved diet.

The extract of this amazing fruit is

called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or

CitriMax. Research has shown HCA

to help suppress the appetite, reduce

cravings, feel fuller for longer, increase

energy levels, help prevent fat from

being made & stored in the body,

increase lean muscle mass, increase

serotonin levels in the brain that

help control mood & sleep (great for

emotional eaters), improve cholesterol

levels that may help reduce the

chances of strokes & cardiovascular

disease, help prevent sugar spikes as

well as other health benefits.

It is considered a very safe

supplement (although check first if

Clinically Proven Nutrients

Support eye Health

Go Vision Protect from Go Healthy New Zealand is the new standard

in eye support formulas. It is one of the most comprehensive high

potency eye formulas available anywhere, with well researched

ingredients in levels needed to support eye health & good vision.

Key nutrients include: Bilberry, Yumberry, Blackcurrant, Lutein,

Poor Focus, Blurry Vision

Macular Degeneration

Sensitivity to Glare

Headaches from Eye Strain

Supports general eye health

you are on medication) as it has been

used for centuries as a flavouring

agent & digestive aid.

To obtain reliable results it is

important to take a product that

contains a standardized extract of 60%

HCA & also take the recommended

amount as used in the clinical

research. Some supplements also

contain ChromeMate, a wellresearched

form of niacin-bound

chromium to help improve the results

even more.

Enjoy unique shopping to be found at Women’s Expo

With over 200 sites to browse, unique businesses to discover,

shopping, bargains and laughter, the Expo is the ultimate day

out for every woman.

One of the appeals the Expo has to

visitors is the variety of companies

involved with everything from

jewellery and shoes to activewear

and fitness to skincare and health

products to gourmet food and wine

and even a company offering plantbased

cooking classes for Kids &

Adults. There really is something for

everyone and all ages.

Renee Murray from NZME Events,

organiser of the Expo says “Our

aim is to have as wide of a range

of companies involved with the

Expo as possible. Women are all

different and their individual interests

are so diverse. One woman

may love the latest in makeup or

skincare but the woman beside

her may be more interested in

cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail

or sampling handmade cheese.

It’s great on the weekend to see

all the various women visit the

show, from teenagers to business

women, mothers to grandmothers

and friends simply enjoying each

other’s company. It’s becoming

more common for us to see three

generations visit the Expo together

as well, with the daughter, mother

and grandmother all enjoying the

show and spending the day with

each other.”

Brandhouse will exhibit at the Expo

for the first time with their range of

champagne, vodka, port and wines.

Popular at other Expo’s this year

has been the Royal Dragon’s elite

flavour vodka collection with some

flavours selling out. Introducing

the most tantalizing and unique

flavoured vodka collection of its time

flavours include Watermelon, Green

Apple, Passion Fruit, Chocolate and

Lychee… A great vodka collection

to enjoy neat, on the rocks or in

your favourite cocktail! Visit the

large Brandhouse site at the show

to sample from their fabulous range

and take home what you love.

Christinz Clothing will visit the show

for the first time, travelling from

Balclutha to showcase her selection

of Designer Clothing including;

pants, stunning tops, skirts, base

layers and jackets. A popular

item are her batwing sleeve tops with a

flattering shape through front to suit all

sizes and with pink, gold, navy, black

and silver in the colour range these tops

look great with jeans, skirts or leggings.

Christinz Clothing are located in the Expo

Fashion Zone.

The High Protein Breakfast Company

will travel all the way from Auckland with

their exclusive High Protein Muesli. Not

not only tastes great but helps with weight

management, health and fitness. Without

many of the sugars or fillers that so many

processed breakfast foods contain these

mueslis will keep you fuller for longer and

with flavours including

Berry, Peach &

Nectarine and Feijoa

you will want to buy

them all. Visit the High

Protein Breakfast
