Call to clean up cemetery

• By Caitlin Miles

ONE OF the city’s oldest

cemeteries is overgrown with

weeds and the graves and

headstones are breaking away.

The Somerfield Residents’

Association was scheduled to

discuss the problems at the

Sydenham Cemetery at its meeting

last night.

Chairwoman Julie Tobbell

said she would like to see the city

council consider doing maintenance

work on the graves.

“I feel it would be nice in their

plans to look after some of the

older ones. It is tricky, though,

as it has to be respectful,” Mrs

Tobbell said.

Last year, the residents’ association

held four events to get the

community involved in the clean

up and weeding of the graves.

“It’s a big cemetery; it takes a

lot of time to do it and clean it

up,” she said.

Local resident Kersten Ching

wants the city council to step in

and help.

“It has a lot of history there

and it deserves to be respected,”

Ms Ching said of the cemetery,

which opened in 1896.

It is the family of the deceased

person’s responsibility to keep

the grave sites and burial plots

maintained and tidy.

“Elderly people struggle to

weed the plots and some don’t

have any family so the sites are

left to become over grown,” Ms

Ching said. She said all the heritage

the plots should be better

looked after.

“Soon you won’t be able to

see the headstones through the

weeds,” she said.

The residents’ association try

and encourage the community

to help clean up the graves, but

Ms Ching said it shouldn’t be the

community’s responsibility.

“Why can’t people serving

community service be used to

tidy the plots?” she said.

The city council has contractors

to clean around the graves

and maintain the cemetery, not

individual plots.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think the city council should

maintain burial plots and

grave sites? Send your views

YOU GENERALLY don’t get

- and testament to that is young

Hoon Hay gymnast Stella Ashcroft

(see page 8).

The 14-year-old is off to the

United States to compete in the

World Olympics Gymnastic Academy

Classic in Dallas, followed by

the Houston National Invitational

in Galveston.

She raised almost $4000 to get

there, and she’s been training upward

of 30 hours a week. Presumably,

there’s school work to cope

with as well.

That’s fairly amazing for a

14-year-old in my books.

She is one of 12 gymnasts from

the Christchurch School of Gymnastics

who are set to compete in

two international competitions, so

that’s a big bouquet for the club.

And, a bouquet for the Cashmere-

Spreydon Community Board

which chipped with $500 to help

Stella get there. – Barry Clarke

​Battle to lower speed by schools

ashion

SOMERFIELD SCHOOL’S

• By Caitlin Miles

principal wants the law changed

to lower speed limits outside

schools.

Denise Torrey (below) said

the city councils’ current plan

of lowering speed

limits based on a

school’s surroundings

is a good way

Gardening

of improving safety

but she wants the law

changed to ‘dramatically

lower speed limits” around

all schools.

The school has wanted the

speed reduced around it since

before the September 2010 earthquake

due to safety concerns

for the pupils and last week the

otoring

Spreydon Cashmere Community

Board approved the installation

of 40km/h electronic flashing

signs to go around the school.

The flashing signs will go on

Studholme, Somerfield and Bard

Sts and non-flashing signs at the

end of the school speed zones at

the end of Studholme St and on

Tainui St.

asty Bites

A school zone is an area where

the speed is reduced to 40km/h

during times when pupils are

arriving and leaving. Any other

time the usual speed limit applies.

Currently the school is in a

50km/h speed limit zone.

Somerfield School is third

on the city council’s list of 18

schools prioritised for school

speed limit changes.

The installation and the signs

are expected to cost $50,500, and

be implemented this year.

The city council has only

$120,000 a year to spend on

school zones.

The cost covers up to four

zones across the city a year.

Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s

Catholic schools, both on Ferry

Rd, and Linwood Avenue School

have all been asking for lower

speed limits. None of them feature

on the city council’s list.

City council operations transport

manager Steffan Thomas

said schools were prioritised

based a number of factors relating

to the road environment

outside a school.

“The list is reviewed regularly

and the ranking of an individual

school can change due to the

SLOW:

School will have

the speed lowered

to 40km/h

during school

time to keep

pupils getting

to and from the

school safer.

HUNTER

school, and the surrounding

environment, changing,” he said.

Ms Torrey said if the speed

limit was reduced for all schools

there might not be a need for the

signs, as people would know it’s

the same for every school.

Based on the city council being

able to install about three

zones per year, Cashmere High

School and Christchurch South

Intermediate will get lower

speed zones in 2018, Aidenfield

Christian School in 2019 and St

Martins School in 2020.

In Brief

PLAYGROUND UPGRADE

Linwood Park playground is getting

an upgrade. The playground

in the park was fenced off last year

for city council staff to carry out

a safety check on the equipment.

Structural repairs are currently

being done by contractors and the

work is expected to cost $4000.

CARS BURNT OUT

Firefighters called to a car fire on

Saturday morning in Addington

were surprised to find three

vehicles burning. They were called

at about 2.10am to Spencer St

after reports of a car on fire. A fire

communications spokesman said

it was a “bit of surprise” when

they found three. The cars were

extinguished without incident

and police are investigating.

EMERGENCY TEAM MEETS

The Somerfield Residents’

Association has joined with

the Lower Cashmere Residents’

Association to create the

Somerfield Cashmere Emergency

Response Team. At today’s

scheduled meeting, members

will discuss emergency plans

for the area and how to look

after people in the community,

including setting up evacuations

and roles within the team. Email

Opawa Berry Fest draws a crowd

THE WARM weather bought

thousands to the annual Opawa

Berry Fest last weekend.

Organisers said this was the

biggest turn out to the sixth annual

event, with more growers

and people than ever before.

Market organiser Doug Hesp

said Berry Fest was held to entice

people to the market.

“The idea behind the Berry

Fest is not only to showcase the

region’s berry fruit, but an

opportunity for people new to

the market to see the fantastic

range of fresh, local produce and

food products available every

Sunday,” Mr Hesp said.

Eight berry growers from

across Canterbury brought a

large range of berries selling out,

including strawberries, blueberries,

raspberries, boysenberries,

loganberries, blackberries and

blackcurrants.

Market organiser Doug Hesp

said one grower sold out in under

2.5 hours.

“One grower alone sold over

900kg of berries… when he arrived

at the market and showed

me what was inside his truck he

said he’d never sell it all… he

sold his last punnet of strawberries

at about 11.15am.”

There was also face painting

to keep the children entertained,

along with real fruit ice

creams to enjoy during the hot

weather.

PAINTING: Children lined up to get their faces painted, with

butterflies a popular favourite.

BERRIES: Vendors made

a roaring trade, one selling

900kg’s within three hours.

CROWDS: The warm sunny

weather brought the crowds

to the market, enjoying coffee

and the many different berries

for sale.

YUMMY: Six-year-old Amy

and nine-year-old Millie of

Governors Bay School went

along to the Berry Fest,

enjoying a real fruit berry icecream

in the hot weather.

PROTECTED: To protect

Risingholme Community

Centre from the elements

and further damage the

building has been covered in

scaffolding and plastic wrap

while it is being restored. Fire

damage to the building (right)

delayed the start of work

while insurance was sorted

out, but now work has begun

on the building.. ​

Heritage restorations are under way

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE REBUILD of fire

and earthquake-damaged

Risingholme Community Centre

has finally begun, after it was put

on hold last year.

The removal of fire damaged

parts of the building combined

with designs that have yet to be

completed last year meant the

city council couldn’t confirm

when work was going to start,

but it has now.

The Opawa building was damaged

during the February 22,

2011 earthquake and has been

out of use because it needed

extensive repairs.

The roof and upper stories

were damaged in a suspected arson

attack on June 6. Scaffolding

and plastic wrap were put around

the building to protect it.

The city council confirmed in

July it would rebuild the heritage

facility.

City council heritage build

programme manager Richie

Moyle said after waiting for sign

off from insurance before work

on the restoration could begin.

The fire and earthquake

insurance issues have been kept

separate.

The centre had been insured

for $5 million.

The hall designs have been

completed, and staff made

changed to the new toilet and

bathroom layout.

Mr Moyle said the city council

plan to have the building open

early next year.

Before the building was damaged

it was used for a range

of community education and

school programmes.

The Sign of the Takahe is in the

last stages of repair work, with it

expected to be open this month.

“A new date will be supplied

once the latest design changes

have been made and consents

submitted,” Mr Moses said.

“It will be great to have a beautiful

icon return to the city,” Mr

Moyle said.

NEAR COMPLETION: Sign of the Takahe is expected to be

opened later this month, with work in the final stages.

Missing horse mystery a

case of repeat vandalism

• By Caitlin Miles

JADE – the missing play horse

from Charleston Reserve – is

not missing, it was taken away

because of vandalism.

There was initially some

confusion over the missing

horse, which was supposed to be

with its partner, Charlie, in the

Waltham reserve.

Charleston Residents’

Association chairman John

Hoskin said his wife saw it leave

the reserve on the back of a city

council truck and it hasn’t been

seen since.

However, the city council

said the horse was vandalised

on “more than one occasion.”

Because of this, it was taken

out of the reserve after a report

was received stating it had been

damaged again.

City council neighbourhood

and sports parks operation

manager, Al Hardy, said because

the vandals targeted the horse, it

was not replaced.

Mr Hoskin said he hoped

Jade would be returned or

replaced by the city council after

asking the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

LONELY: Charleston Residents’ Association chairman John

Hoskin with the lonely Charlie horse. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

to look into it.

Mr Hardy said the horse

wouldn’t be returned, but it

would look at putting something

else in its place.

“Given the history of

vandalism with this particular

piece of equipment, we are

investigating an alternative

piece of equipment for the

horse’s replacement,” Mr Hardy

said.

For now, the remaining horse,

Charlie, will be without its

partner while the city council

looks at other options.

CHANGES: The city council has changed its plan to landscape

Edmonds Park for flood mitigation work.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

No go for Edmonds Park path

• By Caitlin Miles

A PATHWAY will not be

installed at Edmonds Park due

to neighbours concerns that

it would be hidden during the

night time.

As part of Bells Creek flood

mitigation work, the park in

Woolston is being developed to

help ease flooding in the area.

The city council’s Land

Drainage Recovery Programme

investigated options for flood

mitigation in Bells Creek and

recommend a package of works

to reduce flooding.

Stage one includes a new detention

pond within the northern

half of Edmonds Park where

the sports fields are currently

located.

By realigning the creek to run

through Edmonds Park, it will

ease flooding in the surrounding

properties. The section of park

planned for the dry channel was

chosen as it is currently not used.

A sealed footpath on the

southern side of the landscape

planting was also planned to

provide access from Aldwins Rd

into the park.

A small wooden footbridge

across the realigned Bells Creek

at the eastern side of the park

would allow pedestrians to

cross from the northern to the

southern side of the creek.

Councillor Yani Johanson said

nearby residents were worried

about safety if the path was not

well lit during the night and

wanted to see it changed.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

had originally signed off on the

landscaping plans but the project

team assigned to the work

had met with nearby residents

and decided not to install the

pathway to ease their concerns.

Addington church turns 150

• By Caitlin Miles

THE OLDEST church in

Addington is about to celebrate

its 150th year.

The Anglican Church of St

Mary the Virgin was built in

1867, in the centre of Church

Square.

It has a long history, surviving

many historical moments and

withstanding the September

2010 and February 2011

earthquakes.

In 1863, deputy chairman of

the Canterbury Association,

Henry Sewell, gifted five

acres (2ha) to the Diocese of

Christchurch for a church,

parsonage and glebe.

A church was built on the

land and opened its doors on

February 19, 1867.

It was named St Mary the

Virgin in 1870 and doubled in

size in 1880 for the growing

congregation.

Due to ageing, the church

required repair work, which

was carried out in the 1960s.

Current priest in charge,

Reverend Mandy Neil, said

the repairs played a part in the

historic church surviving the

earthquakes.

Rev Neil said planning

the celebrations had been 18

months in the making.

“Everyone has played a part in

organising the festivities . . . it’s

a community-focused church,”

Rev Neil said.

The celebrations start on

Saturday night with a dinner

before a day of celebrations on

Sunday.

“The biggest part is the

celebrations on Sunday. It’s

exactly 150 years since the

church started,” Rev Neil said.

A thanks-giving meal will be

held followed by a community

tea party from 1pm at the

church grounds.

Rev Neil said it was important

to recognise and celebrate

the people who started the

Addington community, which

led to the church.

“These were really brave

people; it’s about showing

appreciation for what they did,”

Rev Neil said.

Community celebrations

will be held at Church Square

on Sunday from 1pm. It will

include performances from

Addington Brass and Simon

Hart as well as entertainment

for the children and a barbecue

sausage sizzle. There will also

be an ice-cream and coffee cart

on site.

CELEBRATE: The Anglican Church of St Mary the Virgin

will commemorate 150 years this weekend.

Bamford helps Keas to victory in his final game

• By Gordon Findlater

Tuesday February 14 2017

THE LINWOOD Keas saw

off former Canterbury Bulls

captain Chris Bamford in style

by winning the Crosbie Nines on

Saturday.

The Keas 17-12 win over the

Hornby Panthers in the final was

Bamford’s last for the club. He

left for Australia yesterday to play

for Orange CYMS in New South

Wales.

“It was a good way to send him

off,” said Keas coach Andrew

Auimatagi.

Bamford and the Keas made

it a perfect fortnight in the nineman

game, backing up their win

in the Rolleston Nines last month

with a perfect run of results at

Crosbie Park.

The Keas went unbeaten in the

morning pool play, accounting

for the Riccarton Knights 23-0,

the Aoraki Eels 35-14 and the

Halswell Hornets 17-15.

They then defeated the

Celebration Lions 23-8 in the

quarter-final before a rematch

with the Hornets in the semifinal.

The encounter was just as

close as their pool play encounter

with the Keas prevailing 15-12. It

also doubled as a rematch of the

Rolleston Nines final.

The Hornets made their way

to the semi-final courtesy of

an impressive 25-18 win over

defending champions the

Papanui Tigers in the quarterfinals.

“I was really impressed with

Halswell. They’ve struggled a

bit recently in the 13-man game

but they’ve got a really tight-knit

bunch and they had a couple of

new recruits playing really well,”

said Auimatagi.

The Keas then met the

Panthers in the final. The

Panthers defeated Nelson

Combined 23-13, and the Aranui

Eagles 10-0, on their way to the

final match.

In a rematch of last year’s club

final, the Keas once again proved

too strong for the Panthers.

“It was really pleasing after a

long day,” said Auimatagi

“It’s tough to get through six

games but the boys dug deep and

got the result we wanted.”

Keas prop Alex Todd was

named Crosbie Nines’ MVP,

while Panthers lock Corey

Lawrie was named MVP in the

grand-final game.

The Keas will now turn their

attention to defending the Pat

Smith Trophy in the Canterbury

club competition which starts on

April 1.

KIDSTUFF

Dog rescue charity in

The Woolston charitable

I just don’t have the funds

to repair it or replace it,”

she said.

Hamish Cross has offered

the organisation a Toyota

enough money to buy its

“That’s an amazingly

generous offer. He is a

Ms van der Plas said the

offer gave her more time to

Progress counts

in maths class

If you’re a parent of school-aged children, chances are

that there is a subject they just don’t like. And for many

kids, that subject is maths.

Like many parents, Dale and Kirsty found that their

daughter Sayler, 8, just didn’t understand maths and it

was proving difficult to keep up at school. So, Dale and

Kirsty decided it was time to give Sayler that extra help she

needed and enrolled her in the Kumon Maths Programme

at their local centre in Fendalton. It was during the August

Free Trial, and so they decided to see if their older son Zach

might enjoy Kumon Maths also.

Six months later and both children are still doing daily

worksheets with Kumon. Maths is now one of Zach’s

favourite subjects and Sayler has demonstrated a real

motivation for improving in her studies. That Kumon

worksheets are timed makes this easy for Sayler to see, ‘She

is really keen to beat her time. I think having those little

goals certainly help’ said Dale.

A sense of achievement can go a long way when it comes

to engaging with maths. ‘Everyone likes it when they have

success, don’t they? Being able to see that progress is great’

said Kirsty.

‘Kumon focuses on maths skills - exclusively and

expertly’ said Marette Wells who runs the Kumon

Fendalton Education Centre. ‘The ability of the student

does not matter; Kumon brings confidence as they grow

into their potential’.

Kumon follows a method that develops self-learning in

children which is important to parents like Kirsty. ‘I think

it’s really important that our children know that if they

need to find out how to do something then they have the

skills to work it out.’

Education Centre or visit our website nz.kumonglobal.com

FLAME FILES

Too many near misses

a warning sign

• By Mark Thomas – Fire

Risk Management Officer

MOST PEOPLE will have

read of the horrendous

death of the young man

in Woodham Rd from

catching his clothing on

fire. The final cause is

still being investigated but

this is a good example of

something I have come to

realise over years of being

a fire investigator.

That is the number of

‘near misses’ is many,

many times the number

of incidents we attend.

Most of these ‘near misses’

occur without anyone

being aware they have

happened. But every now

and then a perfect series

of circumstances line up

in a row and the result

is fire. Sometimes, like

in Woodham Rd, with a

tragic outcome.

A less serious outcome

in Oram Ave, New Brighton,

is a good example.

It’s summer time. So the

placing of a picture frame

on the top of a freestanding

fireplace is not unusual

or even dangerous. Until

we get an unseasonal cold

snap and someone lights

the fire to warm the house.

Then goes out. In this

case the result was only a

smokelogged house. But

one or two more circumstances,

like it being bedtime,

and perhaps a few

drinks and we could have

had another tragedy.

A slightly closer near

miss on the same day

in Bishopdale saw some

sleeping occupants

remaining fast asleep

as their smoke alarm

shrieked. In this case it

was food left cooking on

the stove. The alarm was

overheard by a neighbour

and 111 called.

Without the call? Who

knows?

Back to school with confidence

At Kumon, students begin study at a level that allows them to build

confidence from day one. Students progress through the programmes

based on their ability rather than their age. Over time, students can study

advanced material confidently and independently for success in school

and everyday life.

Contact your local Kumon Centre to hear how we can support your

child’s learning.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Varicose veins treated

quickly and effectively

Transform Clinic in Mandeville Street

Riccarton boasts a team of dedicated

professionals, who include the clinic’s doctor,

Ian Little, registered nurses and qualified

beauty therapists, providing a wide range

of appearance medicine and beauty therapy

treatments for their clients.

One of their main specialties is nonsurgical

varicose vein removal. This is a

simple, quick and effective walk-in walk-out

treatment with no time off work required.

Clients seeking advice about their varicose

veins first undergo a free assessment, which

enables the health professional to determine

if they need treatment, and if so, what the

most appropriate type would be.

Two methods are offered – endo-venous

laser treatment, which is used for both

smaller and larger veins, and ultrasound

guided sclerotherapy. Following the

treatment, clients need to wear support

stockings for two weeks. International travel

is not recommended for four weeks after

treatment.

Transform Clinic has an affiliation

with health provider Southern Cross and

relationships with several other health

insurance companies, which means clients

may be covered for varicose vein treatment,

providing it is included in their policy.

Appearance medicine is another key

aspect of Transform Clinic’s therapy options,

with skin rejuvenation and skin-tightening

treatments designed to improve skin quality

as well as enhance self-esteem.

Treatments include the Vampire Face Lift,

which uses Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP, and

Fraxel laser treatment. These treatments can

be combined to achieve the desired results.

Sclerotherapy is also used to remove

superficial veins on the legs and face. In

addition, the clinic offers mole mapping,

mole removal and primary skin cancer

removal.

The Transform Clinic website,

www.transformclinic.co.nz, has a wealth of

information on the various treatments and

regularly has special offers and promotions.

They also suggest you ‘like’ their Facebook

page, to keep up to date with what they

are offering.

The Transform Clinic is discreetly

located at 52a Mandeville Street. Opening

hours are Monday to Friday from 8.30am,

with late nights on Tuesday and Thursday,

and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. Phone

343-2880 to enquire about treatments or

make an appointment.

Clients seeking advice about their varicose veins first undergo a free

Start your

AN ECLECTIC ESTABLISHMENT

As featured in February STYLE Taste: Vanessa Ortynsky discovers

Urban Corner Cafe has much more to offer than initially meets the eye.

ON the former site of the Bower Hotel

in New Brighton stands the Urban

Corner Cafe (alongside with e

Bower), which is one of the most

eclectic establishments in the city.

Urban Corner is uniquely

Christchurch in that it’s constructed of

18 shipping containers. It’s a standout

on the landscape, situated near the

residential red zone and overlooking

the Avon River. Upon setting foot

inside this spacious establishment, you

immediately forget about its modular

construction methods.

With its warm and family-friendly

vibe, Urban Corner has become a

community hub for New Brighton

locals. e restaurant serves up brunch, lunch and

dinner on a daily basis. Menu items are seasonal and

the Pork Belly Burger served with coleslaw and

cranberry sauce is a must-try for summer.

ere’s also a kids menu and a playground outside,

catering to mums looking for a place to bring the little

ones for a play date. ere’s Farmyard Animal Day with

pony rides on the last Sunday of every month in

summer, weather permitting, which includes a Llama

with a bad haircut and ponies of all sizes. As well as a

separate shipping container that can be hired for kids

parties.

With plenty of entertainment for the older crowd as

well, ‘Stitch n Bitch’ is hosted by a local

artists and is every second Monday.

It’s an excellent spot to discover new

Kiwi artists and local talent.

e dining room is adorned with

brightly-coloured kitschy decor. You

can purchase any of the art that lines

the walls of this establishment. You’re

sure to get a laugh out of some of the

quirky tongue-in-cheek posters and

signage.

Sharing the premises with e

Bower proves advantageous as Urban

Corner features an extensive beer and

wine list without the central-city price

tag. e Friday menu comes with a

$20 price tag, there is always events

and special deals - including Wednesday and ursday

feed the family of four for $50. Keep an eye on their

Facebook page for even more stellar specials. If you are

looking for a takeaway, there is a full range of cabinet

available too.

A little bit different from your traditional cafe and

bar, this friendly place is sure to delight. If you’re

looking for a local eatery, or keen to experience the

warmth and hospitality of the eastern suburbs. Urban

Corner is a sure bet.
