Pensioner’s plea to ECan:

Sort out our bus service

• By Caitlin Miles

SOMERFIELD resident Peter

Collins has never driven – which

means he relies on his wife or the

bus to get him around.

But the closest bus stop for the

75-year-old is about 700m away.

So now Mr Collins has joined

a neighbourhood battle to try

and convince Environment

Canterbury to boost the area’s

bus service.

As part of widespread changes,

ECan discontinued the 114

route several years ago because

of low patronage. It ran from

the Barrington shopping centre

through Somerfield to Cashmere.

Mr Collins said that was a

“cruel blow.”

ECan compensated by creating

the Blue line and 145 route, neither

of which runs along Selwyn

or Somerfield Sts.

Residents are upset as some

sections of Somerfield are

1.3km away from the nearest

stop. When the bus routes were

changed, ECan said services and

stops would be within 500m of

most households.

Mr Collins said is a struggle to

walk that far in the winter.

“I won’t repeat to you the

words I mutter when I walk to

the bus in that weather,” he said.

Somerfield Residents’

Association chairwoman Julie

Tobbell set up a petition last year

to get a bus service back along

Selwyn and Somerfield Sts.

Mr Collins decided to go

door-to-door around his

neighbourhood with copies of

the petition.

“My aim was for 250 signatures,

I got 300,” Mr Collins said.

Mr Collins has never held a

licence because his wife, Pamela,

has always driven. However, Mrs

Collins doesn’t like driving long

distances, so the couple rely on

being able to use the bus.

The petition offers two suggestions

to remedy the problem.

One option included re-routing

route 60 to include Somerfield

and Selwyn Sts. The other option

included creating a new

route which goes around The

Princess Margaret, Burwood and

Christchurch Hospitals and includes

Somerfield and Selwyn Sts.

Mr Collins said there are some

more areas he’d like to doorknock

and Mrs Tobbell said she

wants to do more as well before

presenting the petition to ECan.

LET’S GO into bat for pensioner

Peter Collins and his Somerfield

neighbours.

The 75-year-old has been doorknocking

in his neighbourhood

to get names on a petition to get

bus services in his area back on

track (see page 1).

The local residents’ association

is right in the thick of the fight

too.

There is a long story to this

battle and to be fair Environment

Canterbury which runs the city’s

bus routes has tried to make

things work for all.

But residents say it’s not enough

and now people like Peter Collins

are stirring up for a decent scrap.

I say ECan should agree to the

residents’ wishes and give a new

route a trial.

Then it will be a case of use it or

lose it.

Protection for monuments

• By Caitlin Miles

THE WOOLSTON Borough

Monument will soon be

graffiti-proof.

The city council is planning

to install see-through polyglass

panels around the outside of the

monument to protect it, and the

New Brighton War Memorial,

from being vandalised in the

future.

City council capital delivery

community manager, Darren

Moses, said because of previous

vandalism, the war memorial

will have the panels put around

it to stop it from being tagged.

“As with the Woolston

Borough Monument, the New

Brighton War Memorial is

continually tagged or engraved

with initials,” Mr Moses said.

Woolston Borough

Monument, on the corner of

Richardson Tce and Ferry Rd

commemorates when the area

became a borough on July 27,

1893. It’s made of Oamaru stone

with a light stand on top.

A stonemason sanded down

the monument to remove the

graffiti to get it ready to install

the panels at a cost of $550.

The panels will be installed

later this month, once some

It is expected

to cost $23,000

to complete the

project.

planned to do something to

protect the memorial.

“It’s very important to us and

to community that it is looked

after and we do support the city

council for the work on it,” Mr

House said.

The panels are clear and protect

the monument. They have a

film over top of them which can

be replaced if they are defaced.

The full panels can be removed

during ceremonies.

It is expected to cost $25,000

for the total cost to design, and

to fabricate and install polyglass

around the memorial with

the installation of the panels

expected to take place next

month.

There are no further plans

to install similar panels on any

other monuments around the

city.

KIDNEY SURGERY

A 6 year old Golden Lab called, you

guessed it, LOLA, came to see us for a

referral ultrasound at the end of last year

because she had been urinating “clots”

of blood. She was clinically bright and

alert at the visit but did have a history of

possibly having access to rat bait 7 days

earlier.

The abdominal ultrasound was

performed by Catherine and she found

a possible bleed into the left kidney but

no sign of tumours anywhere else. A

wide range of blood and urine testing

was performed, including clotting times

in case of rat bait access, and all showed

up very normal, apart from evidence that

she had experienced a recent bleed. So

initially she was discharged on Vitamin

K in case of rat bait and antibiotics. She

seemed bouncy and was of course still

ravenous but a follow up ultrasound was

scheduled for the following week to check

to see if the haemorrhage had resolved in

the left kidney.

She returned happily to see Kirsty the

following week looking great. No further

blood clots were seen in her urine. The

ultrasound of the left kidney appeared in

worse shape – the kidney was increased

in size and still full of fluid – blood?

Specialists were consulted and it was

agreed that a CT scan was needed to rule

in or out cancer.

Kirsty accompanied Lola to her CT

scan. The radiologist noted marked

pathological changes in the left kidney

that resembled a rapidly progressing

primary kidney tumour. No sign of cancer

was seen in the lungs or other parts of

the abdomen. It was decided that she

needed a nephrectomy ( removal of the

left kidney) fairly urgently while she still

essentially well. Her right kidney was

functioning normally ( as seen on CT scan

and via the bloods)and without surgery

her prognosis was probably less than 1

month.

So Kirsty and myself put our hands

up to operate on Lola. A nephrectomy

surgery is not to be taken lightly so we

did our research before attempting the

left kidney removal ( text book reading,

U tube videos, consulting with other

surgeons). We had a blood donor dog,

a German shepherd called Pepper, on

standby in case she lost a lot of blood

or we couldn’t control surgical bleeding.

My Lola frequently gave blood but since

she’s had a renal tumour removed and

undergone chemotherapy, she can no

longer have blood drawn. It is important

for a clinic to have access to a healthy,

young, disease free canine patient in

the case a blood transfusion is needed.

Collecting blood is largely straight forward

although the donor dog often needs to

be sedated as the collection needle is

large bore and goes into the jugular vein.

The patient must lay very still while we

are collecting the blood. Pepper did an

amazing job and her blood was sent to

the After hours clinic with Lola in case she

required it.

The surgery was a complete success,

and even though there were a few tense

moments during the 2 hour operation,

Kirsty and I were thrilled with the final

outcome. Her left kidney and ureter were

carefully removed and the bleeding

controlled. Georgie did a superb job of

anaesthetic monitoring – not straight

forward at all. Lola woke up brilliantly and

has really never looked back. Her owners

were very thrilled and grateful for the

work our entire team carried out from

start to finish. And the best news being,

the mass in the kidney wasn’t “cancer”, the

kidney was diseased, non functioning and

had a large blood clot present.

Lola will need ongoing monitoring to

make sure the surviving kidney maintains

good health. This will be done by regular

blood and urine testing with her primary

vet in Ashburton. Just like with my Lola,

we are out of the woods but still need to

keep our eyes open for any small changes.

My Lola did have kidney cancer confirmed

so she gets 6 monthly CT scans at St

Georges and 3 monthly blood and urine

testing. Periodically she is fed Prescription

kidney diets but for now her surviving

kidney is holding up well. Long may it last

– my Lola is now swimming and relaxing

up in the Bay of Islands with the family.

Take home message – consult your

vet immediately if your dog passes

clots of blood in the urine. This isn’t

normal.

Trump changing politics

Christchurch

MacDonald

what Donald

Trump is doing to

politics

Has Donald Trump

revived politics?

It seems to be the topic

every media outlet across

the globe is reporting – the

Donald Trump presidency.

While we have seen him

already make controversial

moves like remove the

United States from the

Trans-Pacific Partnership

Agreement and adopt

an archaic, protectionist

approach to trade, the

question still stands. Is a

Trump presidency likely

to improve the awareness

of politics and the importance

of voting?

One of the struggles inherent

with local government

elections is the lack

of awareness or engagement

and the resulting low

voter turnout. In the 2016

elections, only 40 per cent

of Christchurch voters cast

a ballot. For an organisation

tasked with spending

millions of dollars

www.ruapunaspeedway.co.nz

every year on roads, traffic,

waterways, parks and

collecting rubbish, there

isn’t much of everyday life

that isn’t impacted by the

work overseen by elected

representatives.

Now, while I don’t

propose that our elections

are comparable to the US

elections, the challenge

remains: How do we improve

voter participation

and increase the awareness

of what your city council

and community board do

for you?

I’ve taken a different

approach in the Waimairi

Ward. Firstly, by working

with local residents on key

issues, such as challenges

with urban planning and

development, parking

and traffic issues, and the

under utilisation of our

parks and recreational

areas. Secondly, I’ve been

working to raise awareness

of the importance of

democratic participation.

democratic process, more

can be done. I challenge

you to talk to someone

under the age of 30 and

discuss the importance

and impact of their vote.

While rubbish collection

and traffic issues may not

be the most appealing

conversations, the point

remains – will the ongoing

controversy surrounding

the Trump presidency, in

the very least, raise awareness

around the importance

and impact of your

democratic right to vote?

Urban forest for Linwood likely

In Brief

• By Caitlin Miles

AN URBAN forest may be

developed in Linwood Lower

Fields as part of flooding

protection plans.

The land will be developed

into a new water storage basin,

it’s planned to store flood water

in heavy rainfall and release it

slowly back into Bells Creek to

reduce the flood risk to houses in

Linwood. The area surrounding

the ponds is proposed to be made

into an urban forest and park

area. The landscaping plan has

gone out for public consultation.

The city council is in discussions

with the Ministry of Education

over purchasing 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.

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.

PROTECTION: The plans include native trees surrounding the ponds and a path through the forest. ​

The plan includes planting

2500 native trees and having concrete

footpaths and boardwalks

to go around the two ponds.

City councillor Yani Johanson

said having the community’s

feedback on the project is important.

“We’re looking at having an

urban forest in Linwood . . . it’s

going to start making Linwood

great again,” Cr Johanson said.

The Linwood Lower Fields

project is part of the wider Land

Drainage Recovery Programme

which seeks to restore the flooding

risk in the city to ‘pre-earthquake

levels’. The Bells Creek

catchment has experienced

a greater flood risk since the

earthquakes due to subsidence

of the ground.

The consultation period will

close on February 15.

The plans will go to the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board in March.

SKATE PARK PLANS DRAWN

Concept plans for the two skate

parks planned for Halswell

have been released. The designs

aimed to incorporate many of

the wish-list items that young

people and locals asked for. The

plans for the Halswell Domain

Skate and Recreation Park and

Knights Stream skate park

include a skate bowl, quarter

pipes, rails along with seating

and shaded areas. If the plans

are approved it is expected to

take three months to complete

each skate park. Consultation is

open until February 20. To find

out more about the plans or to

make a consultation go to https://

ccc.govt.nz/the-council/haveyour-say/whats-happening-now/

SPEED REDUCTIONS LIKELY

THe city council will decide on

Thursday whether or not to

approve six speed reductions

in Halswell following a

recommendation from the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccaton

Community Board. Roads to

have speed limits lowered include

Halswell Junction, Halswell,

Wigram, Marshs, Quaifes, Milns,

concept was put out for public

consultation last year.

Zonta garage sale

to boost charities

A GROUP of women have spent

six months collecting items for a

garage sale – with the proceeds

to go to charity.

Zonta Club of Christchurch

South will hold its annual summer

garage sale on February 11

with children’s toys, preserves,

furniture, ornaments and linen

among some of the items for sale

which will be held bordering the

village green on Dyers Pass Rd,

Cashmere.

Club president Sue Clark said

the women have been busy collecting

and making items to sell.

“It is a lot of work but well

worth it,” Ms Clark said.

Members family and friends

have helped by donating items

as well.

“It’s a white elephant sale, really,

with a huge array of goods,

all in good order and all donated

to us by friends and families.

This sale is an annual event . . .

and it provides us with a great

start to the year.”

Funds raised are all distributed

to the club’s chosen charities.

“We have a number of very

worthwhile charities which

we support and it is incredibly

satisfying to be able to make

substantial donations to these

groups. Next up on our activities

list will be a visit to the Broadfield

Garden on February 19, and

tickets to this are still available to

the public.”

The Zonta Club of Christchurch

South is part of the national

Zonta network which in the last

four years has donated thousands

of dollars to the Sophie

Elliot Foundation, principally

for the publication and distribution

of the book Loves Me Not.

A copy of this book is given to

every student who participates

in a course jointly delivered by

the foundation and the New

Zealand police, and on offer

to all New Zealand secondary

schools.

Ms Clark says Zonta aligns

itself well with the Sophie Elliot

Foundation because Zonta’s

prime aim is to improve the

status of women worldwide.

The Zonta Club of Christchurch

South is well-known for

its annual Zonta Sports Awards

which attract competition from

top athletes and sportspeople

from the secondary schools in

the region.

Church rubble expected to be shifted

• By Caitlin Miles

THE EYESORE that was once

the Sydenham Heritage Church

finally looks like being removed.

It’s been nearly six years since

the church, on the corner of

Colombo and Brougham Sts,

was controversially pulled down

following the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

The rubble was supposed

to move before Christmas,

Sydenham Heritage Trust

chairwoman Dorothy Haywood

said it was yet to “dot all the

I’s and cross all the T’s” on the

project.

However, after a meeting last

week the trust signed on with

contractors to start the process

of moving the rubble “in a few

weeks”.

“There will certainly be a

cleared corner and it will look

better than it does now,” Ms

Haywood said.

The church was built in 1878

and Ms Haywood said the trust

hopes to recover several artefacts

important to Sydenham.

Sydenham Quarter secretary,

Lorraine Thompson, said with

the amount of development in

St Martins teen’s Robin Hood role

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MEET THE new face of one of

medieval’s most timeless English

tales.

Sophia Benter-Lynch, of St

Martins, will put a feminine

twist on the legend of Robin

Hood, playing the heroic outlaw

herself.

Having just left Cashmere

High School, it will be the first

major role of the aspiring performer’s

career.

The Riccarton House grounds

will transform into Sherwood

Forest as the tale of Robin Hood

and her adventures is brought to

the city.

The new adaption was created

by director Daniel Pengelly

for the city council’s Anthony

Harper Summer Theatre production.

While the classic characters

such as the infamous

Sheriff

of Nottingham

and Robin

Hood’s love interest

Lady Marian

will still appear

in the show, audiences

can expect

to see several makeovers.

Benter-Lynch, 18, said most of

the story remains the same but

all characters’ genders have been

PLAYING THE OUTLAW: Sophia Benter-Lynch is playing the new face of English legend

Robin Hood. ​

switched so roles such as Marian

is played by a man.

Nick Cheesebrough (left), 19,

who will play Marian describes

his reinvented character as a buff

jockey sort of guy with a few

insecurities.

He said the show was inspired

by 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince

of Thieves starring Alan Rickman

and Kevin Costner.

Other significant characters

are Carrie Green as the Sheriff of

Nottingham and Millie Hanford

as Friar Tuck.

Benter-Lynch said it is an

empowering play for familiesespecially

those who take their

daughters to the show.

“Even though Robin Hood is

a young woman she is still great

at leading this army. People actually

follow her and it is a great

message to the youth of today,”

she said.

Benter-Lynch’s interest in

acting was first ignited when

she became obsessed with the

film The Sound of Music at eightyears-old.

“I was like they are on stage

they having so much fun singing

and dancing and it is just like

isn’t this just a dream job to be

able to have fun for the rest of

your life,” she said.

Since then she has worked

with The Court Youth Company,

performed in high school productions

and competed in the

Stage Challenge.

Robin Hood will run from

February 1 to 19.

Hello

Hundreds and hundreds

of amazing bike deals

Around Again Cycles in Ferry Road

Woolston has recently celebrated its 10th

birthday sale, and it has been a decade of

proudly serving the local community, the

wider Christchurch area as well as travellers

from around the world, says owner Leroy

Kremers.

Cycling has never been more popular than

it is today (except before the arrival of motor

cars), Leroy says, whether it is to commute,

for touring, recreation or as a way to relieve

stress and keep fit.

Christchurch and its surrounds is regarded

as one of the best places in the country to

cycle, with continual improvements being

made such as the new urban design cycle

paths and the wide variety of options for

cyclists around the city’s green areas.

The opening of the new bike park has

created quite a stir in the off-road community,

Leroy says, and has been immensely popular

since it opened in late December. This has

brought a surge in business for Around Again

Cycles, both with repairing casualties of

the new park and selling good-quality, preowned

and expertly restored bikes ready to

“handle the jandal”.

Repairing and restoring bikes is their

passion, so anyone with an old bike

languishing in the shed is invited to take it

in to Around Again Cycles to have it brought

back to life, ready to hit the road again.

Now in the full swing of the peak season,

Leroy and his team are passionately involved

in repairing, restoring, hiring, buying and

selling bikes for all ages and budgets. Around

Again Cycles offers a range of options for

customers including finance and short and

long-term hire, making it easy for anyone to

enjoy the many benefits of cycling.

So why not call in for a chat at Around

Again Cycles, where the focus is always

on customer service and offering the best

value for money. They are located in the

heart of the Woolston Village at 620 Ferry

Road. Phone 376-6377. Website www.

Keas winning streak continues at nines

• By Gordon Findlater

LINWOOD KEAS added to

their ever-growing trophy

cabinet with a win at the

inaugural Rolleston Nines.

The current Canterbury minor

and major premiership winners

defeated the

Halswell Hornets

28-6 in the final of

the nines tournament

on Saturday.

The Keas

squad of Chris

Bamford (captain), Alex Todd,

Phil Wahnig, Alani Kakoi, Shane

Bowden, Jiordan Fidow-Kele,

Daniel Hartley, Chris Nijssen,

Matt Clydesdale, Sam Hudson,

Leon Jarden, Kane Ormandy,

Luke Holland and Cyrus Carroll

played under the guidance

of coach Andrew Auimatagi

(above).

Auimatagi also recently added

to his own personal trophy

cabinet, winning the domestic

coach of the year title at the New

Zealand Rugby League awards in

Auckland.

“I was pretty taken back; I

didn’t have anything prepared

and it sort of caught me on the

hop. It was just an awesome

feeling and to be in the company

of some of the biggest names in

New Zealand rugby league was

really cool,” said Auimatagi.

He took the Keas to last year’s

Canterbury Rugby League

grand-final, where they defeated

the Hornby Panthers 29-10.

Auimatagi also guided the

Canterbury Bulls to a third place

finish in the National Provincial

Premiership, narrowly missing

out on a grand-final appearance

on points differential.

“My club has been a big part

of who I am and to take a team

through pre-season and then to

win a championship at the end

of it all is a great feeling,” said

Auimatagi.

The former Keas player was

also assistant coach of the New

Zealand Residents team which

defeated New Zealand Maori

30-10.

In October, Auimatagi won

coach of the year at the Canterbury

Rugby League awards.

Papakura Sea Eagles coach

Richie Blackmore and Counties

Manukau Stingrays, New

Zealand Residents and Southern

Cross Campus coach Rod Ratu

were the other finalists for the

award.

The six-team nines tournament

was played between the

Keas, Hornets, Papanui Tigers,

Riccarton Knights, Wycola

Heat and Rolleston Warriors. It

was the first time Rolleston had

staged rugby league in about 16

years.

The Keas will now turn their

attention to the Crosbie Nines,

which take place at Crosbie Park

on February 11.

CHAMPIONS: The Linwood Keas defeated the Halswell Hornets in the inaugural Rolleston Nines

tournament on Saturday.

FLAME FILES

Tuesday January 31 2017

Keep looking when

you are cooking

• By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk

Management Officer

LAST WEEKEND’S wild weather caused

a few issues around town with our fire

trucks attending a number of trees and

lines down.

Scariest for the occupants was a house

in Marine Pde where a power pole ended

up hanging over the building. Evacuation

of the home was the only option until the

power authorities could stabilise things.

THe old pot on stove scenario was

evident again this week with one of the

incidents being at a school. I’m not going

to say where because I don’t want to

embarrass the staff but it’s so easy to see

someone putting the pot on and then

rushing off to do some of the thousands of

jobs needed to do and simply forgetting.

One third of all structure fires start in

the kitchen. The saying: ‘Keep looking

when you’re cooking’ never dates.

One of the most frightening events for a

young mother is accidentally locking your

children in the car. We are quite often

called to assist in breaking-in and mum’s

distress is commonly picked up by the

child who becomes equally unhappy.

Not so on the Rapaki Track on

Wednesday, where the trapped baby was

still smiling when Woolston’s crew finally

broke into the car. Mum smiled then too!

A late night cigarette outside saved a

late model car from major damage in

Avonhead in the early hours of Thursday

when a smoker noticed, well, smoke!

Smouldering electrics would probably

have eventually destroyed the car.

Not often something good comes from

ciggies!

Offering a

full range

of dental

services

Merivale Dental Group staff, left to right, David

Rowley, Megan Smith, Jenny Kim, Petria Waitzer.

A fortnight. One month. Two

months. How much time and

patience does one need to have

a porcelain crown or a ceramic

dental restoration nowadays?

At Merivale Dental Group, they

acknowledge people have hectic

lifestyles juggling work and family

life leaving little time for multiple

dental appointments.

CEREC same-day dental crowns

and implants are the most modern

technology available in dental

restoration. They are one of a few

practices in Christchurch being

able to manufacture and place

ceramic restorations by taking a 3D

digital scan of your teeth. The tooth

is then designed on clever software

and sculpted by a milling unit which

allows them to produce beautiful,

strong porcelain restorations in

the one appointment. This means

no temporary restoration and no

second visit for their patients.

Merivale Dental Group has

the latest and state-of-the-art

Omnicam CEREC unit. Dentists

David Rowley and Jenny Kim

believe that the advances of digital

dentistry are the way of the future

and pride themselves in producing

strong long lasting restorations.

Behind all beautiful, swift dental

restorations should be firm healthy

gums covering the pearly whites.

When it comes to focussing on

having fantastic oral health, it is very

easy for us to forget gum health.

Megan Smith and Petria Waitzer

are the friendly and experienced

dental hygienists at Merivale Dental

Group. They are both passionate

about prevention and treatment

of gum disease and provide gentle

but thorough removal of plaque,

stains, and tartar build-ups. Since

prevention is better than cure, they

are dedicated to helping you perfect

your homecare technique and aid

in sorting out any problems before

they get worse.

Merivale Dental Group offers

a full range of dental services

and they would love to help you

out with all your dental needs. If

you would like more information

on their friendly practice, please

NOTE: The owners have just had a subdivision report completed by a Registered

Survey Company, a Geotechnical Report completed by Registered Consulting

Engineers and a subdivision application has been submitted to council. This is

currently in the approval process and applies for two separate titles to be issued for

the property. Title 1 - House on 1023m 2 and Title 2 - Separate section of 1000m 2 .

On a 2023m 2 section which occupies a prime position right in the heart of the bay. Enjoy

the space and the stunning harbour / hill views. Last on the market in 1948, this was home

to one of our much loved local identities. The comfortable family home offers three double

bedrooms and open plan living opening to wrap-around verandah. You will be super cosy

in winter with the Kent Duo wood-burner and heat-pump, plus a still operational “chippy”

in the kitchen. There is easy, sealed access to a detached double garage plus a single

carport and woodshed. This is a golden opportunity to own a good chunk of the bay right

at its centre. Spread out and keep the whole half acre (2023m 2 )for yourself, develop into

a beautiful garden or just keep as real country space for the kids to romp. For a gardener

it is a blank canvas, an additional way to enhance the future value of this property.
