Bid to

overcome

sporting

facility

zoning

snag

• By Emily O’Connell

A ROAD block, which is in the

way of a Russian businessman’s

plan to expand his Yaldhurst

sporting facility, might be cleared

today.

Canterbury Sports Ltd director

Slava Meyn, who moved to

Christchurch in 2009, built the

Yaldhurst Football Academy two

years ago.

He is now in the process of

planning a bigger complex on the

20ha block of land, which would

include a gymnastics indoor

stadium, swimming pool, sport

courts, and weights area.

But the land he wants to

develop is zoned Open Space

Community Park under the

district plan, which does not

allow for buildings larger than

1000 sq m.

Mr Meyn wants the zoning

to be changed to Open Space

Metropolitan Facilities Zone, so

he can progress the development

as planned.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

YOUNG MEN, cars, speed

and alcohol are unfortunately a

perfect mix for tragedy.

It was like that decades ago,

and it still remains today and

will no doubt into the future.

Next week, two people

affected by drink driving and

crashes will talk to students

at Christchurch Boys’ High

School.

One is a young guy who was

the passenger in a car driven by

a drink driver that crashed –

and one a dad who lost his son

to drink driving (see page 5).

How students digest the talk

will inevitably be up to them.

Hopefully, when they are

out at the weekend, they’ll

remember the talk and not

get into a car driven by a mate

who has been drinking, or get

behind the wheel themselves

after having a few.

Red zone trail opening celebration

• By Bridget Rutherford

UP TO 5000 people are expected

to meet in the middle on Sunday

to celebrate the partial opening

of the residential red zone’s first

major project.

The Meet in the Middle event

will be held at Kerrs Reach to

mark the partial completion of

Te Ara Otakaro, a city to sea

transitional trail running alongside

the Avon River.

When complete, the 12km

long trail will run from Barbadoes

St to Pages Rd, and will be

accessible for cyclists, walkers,

joggers and wheelchairs.

Meet in

the Middle

on Sunday.

Organised by the Avon-Otakaro

Network, Meet in the Middle

will see groups meet at either the

New Brighton Clock Tower or on

the northern bank of the Avon,

opposite the Margaret Mahy

Family Playground, at 10.30am.

Both groups will then walk or

cycle to meet at Kerrs Reach at

noon for the free event, which

will have live music, food, information

stalls and a regatta.

New Zealand soul singer Hollie

Smith will headline the live

music. Folk band The Eastern’s

Adam McGrath will also play.

Canterbury and Union Rowing

Clubs, Arawa Canoe Club,

Aoraki Dragons and Te Waka

Pounamu crews will all compete

in the regatta.

Avon-Otakaro Network

spokesman Evan Smith said the

partial opening was a milestone.

“It’s important to get people

engaged again in the red zone

around the river. For a long

time it’s been a scar in the landscape

in the east, but it’s time

now for that to heal.”

He said the trail still needed

to be completed from the Avondale

Bridge to New Brighton,

although many people had

already been using the

other sections.

The date was chosen

because it coincided

WELL USED: Walkers have already been using the Te Ara

Otakaro trail, along the Avonside section. ​

with The Breeze Walking Festival,

Biketober, Mental Health

Week, school holidays and heritage

and conservation weeks.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel and

Minister supporting greater

Christchurch regeneration Nicky

Wagner will lead the group from

the central city, while Christchurch

East MP Poto Williams and

network chairman Teoti Jardine

will lead those coming from New

Brighton.

The work to construct the trail

is coinciding with the city council’s

upgrade of temporary stop

banks next to the river.

City Care has done pro bono

work on it, alongside a $50,000

grant from the Ministry of Social

Development.

It is not yet known how long

the trail will remain, because the

future location of stop banks has

not been decided.

• Meet in the Middle

will be held on Sunday, from

11am-3pm, with

access from Hockey Lane.

Those walking will meet

at 10.30am. For more

Memories shared as

quarry building reopens

• By Emily O’Connell

THE WITHERS’ family

celebrated with a crowd

of about 30 people as the

Singlemen’s Quarters in

Halswell Quarry Park

reopened on Wednesday.

The building, which has

been closed since the February

22, 2011, earthquake,

spent a year under repair.

The historic building dates

back to 1922.

Former city councillor

Norm Withers and his family

are descendants of one of

the original tenants of the

quarters.

Mr Withers said he really

enjoyed the whole day.

He said being there brought

back a lot of memories from

his childhood, like him flying

kites with his uncles.

He believed all their

loved ones would have been

proudly looking down on

them, he said.

City councillor Anne

Galloway said with the

growing number of people

in Halswell, the building

continued to be an important

LOOKING BACK: John Wilson’s book Local Lives: A History of

Addington, won’t be published until next year.

Addington book delayed

• By Andrew King

A BOOK about the history of

Addington will now be released

next year due to funding

problems.

The book titled Local Lives: A

History of Addington was due to

be released on November 15, but

has now been postponed until

May.

It is being produced by the

Addington Neighbourhood

Association and historian John

Wilson.

Association treasurer Graham

Robinson said the funding it

thought it would get was not

available until next year, but the

book can be preordered.

“It will still be coming out but

because of a funding issue we

need to delay the printing,” he

said.

Mr Wilson has spent more

than 20 years interviewing locals,

pouring over records and collating

a huge amount information

to put the 368-page book

together.

“I have talked to a lot of people,

but have missed a lot as well. If I

was to interview everyone on the

list, I would have been dead for

20 years,” he said.

Mr Wilson, who now resides

in Arthur’s Pass, was working

for the city council heritage

team in the 1990s when he was

approached by the association to

write a book about the suburb.

Mr Wilson, who has a PhD in

history from Harvard University,

said it was great the book was

being designed and printed in

Christchurch.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Crash victim tells sobering story

• By Julia Evans

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High

School students are about to get

a sobering lesson.

George Cairney’s life was completely

changed in

2008 when he sat

in the passenger’s

seat of a car beside

a driver who had

been drinking.

George

Cairney

Graham

Clarke

Nic Hill

The car crashed

into a brick wall at

135km/h.

He will talk

about the incident

to students at the

CBHS hall on

October 18 from

7pm.

At the time Mr

Cairney, 24, was

17 and attended

King’s College in

Auckland.

Taking most

of the impact of

the crash, he has

since been legally

blind and has lost

his sense of taste,

hearing and smell,

as well as developing diabetes,

epilepsy and premature

ageing.

HIGH RISK: Crash victim George Cairney will talk about drink driving to students at CBHS on

October 18.

After spending a month in a

coma, Mr Cairney also lost his

memory from a year before and

after the crash.

His talk will discuss the road

to recovery from his injuries, as

well as the decisions which led

to him to get into the car on that

tragic day.

Mr Cairney, who lives in

Wanaka, will be supported

during the talk by his mentor

and friend Graham Clarke who

has his own story to tell.

His son was killed after getting

behind the wheel after he’d been

drinking.

Headmaster Nic Hill has

invited students from all schools

around the city and the wider

community to hear the story

of “sadness, recovery, love and

strength”.

Mr Hill said the school is

encouraging students to have

emotional conversations about

alcohol and driving.

“These are conversations that

we as adults have to be starting

. . . there is a parental role

in making sure our boys are

equipped to be safe,” he said.

We’ve been trusted to look after hundreds

of properties all over Christchurch.

You can trust us to look after your’s too.

New animal

bylaw not likely

COMPLAINTS ABOUT a

noisy pig in Linwood made it

all the way to the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board table.

However, city council staff

have recommended the board

should not investigate the possibility

of introducing a city

wide bylaw to regulate farm

animals in residential areas.

The pig was moved out of the

area before the meeting – but

the board asked city council

staff for advice on the “keeping

of farm animals in urban areas”

anyway.

In their response, staff said

the keeping of animals is not

regulated through a bylaw or

in the District Plan and they

did not recommend bringing

one in.

“A new bylaw could help

improve clarity around what is

considered acceptable behaviour

around the keeping

of livestock but it would not

enable or offer advantages in

terms of enforcement options,’’

a memo said.

Staff said a better alternative

would be “a policy or other

educational tools” to provide

direction about appropriate

behaviour without the same

cost to the city council.

Bid to overcome zoning snag

•From page 1

Because Mr Meyn’s plans do

not comply, the project could be

delayed by up to five years with

resource and building consent

processes.

City council staff have been

looking into how it could change

the zoning to allow the expansion

to go ahead.

They decided the best way to

do so was through the Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Act.

Today, the city council’s regulatory

performance committee

will decide whether to ask staff

to investigate a way of doing so

through the Act, and to report

back to city councillors.

It would require working with

Regenerate Christchurch and the

department of prime minister

and Cabinet.

It comes just as McDonald’s

has applied for resource consent

to the city council to build a new

restaurant and drive through opposite

the sporting facility.

The idea to speed up the

zone-changing process has been

supported by Sport Canterbury,

Christchurch Netball Centre,

Canterbury Basketball Association,

Mainland Football,

Canterbury Water Polo, Southern

Districts Football Club,

ChristchurchNZ, and Apollo

SPECTACULAR: The current football academy, funded mainly by Slava Meyn and built in 2015. ​

Projects – Aquatic and Sporting

Facilities, who all wrote to the

city council asking it to help

change the zoning.

Wigram MP Megan Woods

and Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce chief

executive Peter Townsend have

also written in support of using

the act to do so.

Dr Woods said it has the

potential to be a really good asset

for western Christchurch but the

community must be involved.

“I think what we absolutely

have to do is make sure that we

get the views of the community

in the process as well,” she said.

The existing football facility

has two full size artificial

football pitches, four artificial

mini-pitches, a full-size natural

turf pitch, clubroom facilities,

café, administrative offices,

grandstand seating for about

1000 people.

PROPOSED: A swimming

complex like this is planned

for the Yaldhurst facility.

Historic Team NZ shirt up for grabs

• By Sophie Cornish

AN ORIGINAL Team New

Zealand shirt from the historic

1995 America’s Cup win is up for

auction to raise money for the

rebuild of Pleasant Point Yacht

Club.

It is one of 1000 limited edition

shirts with a certificate of

authenticity signed by Sir Peter

Blake and Sir Russell Coutts who

headed the 1995 campaign.

The auction is one of many

items on the website GalaBid,

raising money for the rebuild of

Pleasant Point Yacht Club’s clubrooms

in South New Brighton

Park.

The club lost all it’s facilities in

the earthquakes.

The auction is now under way

until noon on Saturday.

Team New Zealand will be

hosted by the yacht club at an

event on Saturday, where the

auctioning of GalaBid items will

continue.

Other items up for grabs include

several seats on a helicopter

ride piloted by Richie McCaw to

a mystery location, a horse power

experience in a dual sulky behind

Monkey King, New Zealand’s

top harness racer, and a hot laps

session at Mike Pero Motorsport

Park in a V8 Supercar driven by

Greg Murphy. Club spokesman

Nigel Humphreys is very happy

with the auction items and said

there is a constant stream of

ticket sales for the event, which

will take place at the Air Force

Museum of New Zealand.

FUNDRAISING:

The Team New

Zealand shirt

that will go up

for auction to

raise funds for

Pleasant Point

Yacht Club’s

clubrooms.

“The special auction items have

all been donated by businesses

and individuals keen to help the

club realise its dream to rebuild

in the South New Brighton Park,”

said Mr Humphreys.

Those who are not attending

the event but still wish to

continue bidding on the items

should contact club commodore

TWO HALSWELL men

have been recognised at the

Apprenticeship Training Trust

graduation and awards.

ATT was established in 1991

to provide trade training opportunities

for New Zealanders.

Its purpose is to deliver a regular

stream of quality tradespeople to

the construction industry.

Nimo Vili graduated as a

plumber gasfitter.

Mr Vili is a father and has

been supporting his family

whilst undertaking his apprenticeship.

Last year, he won the Plumbing

World Prize for Excellence in

Plumbing and Gasfitting.

Mr Vili said he was both proud

and relieved to have graduated.

He said it was nice to not be on

apprentice wages anymore.

Shaun McCoskery is an apprentice

in training. He won

the Plumbing World Award for

Excellence in Plumbing and

Gasfitting.

ATT’s CEO, Gray Paterson

said they were delighted to see

these talented and hard-working

young people complete their apprenticeships.

“We also salute the four

apprentices who have won

prizes for excellence. Mid-way

through their apprenticeships,

these young people are strongly

committed and work to the

high standards we set in our

apprenticeship programme,” Mr

Paterson said.

Mr Vili is now working for a

gas company and Mr McCoskery

is continuing his apprenticeship

with ATT.

Fire rages, homes at risk

FLAME FILES

Fires, rescue, man impaled with bike handle - just another week

• By Mark Thomas - Specialist fire

investigator

A RECENT call to Hei Hei

presented a bit of a challenge for

the Sockburn crew.

A child in a wheelchair was

stuck in her bedroom because

the door handle had broken.

She had been there for some

hours before the family admitted

defeat in their endeavours to

make entry.

The fire crew called managed

to get one of their number

through a window into the room

with some small tools that were

sufficient to break out.

Family reunited.

Water reported flowing from

a house in Stanmore Rd turned

out to be the downfall for some

indoor gardeners.

Helpful firefighters looking

inside were worried that the

chemicals visible were part of a

methamphetamine lab.

They weren’t, but several

rooms full of spiky leafed illegal

plants were found by the police

experts called in.

A resident of Aranui was

recently taken to hospital with

burns to the hand.

You guessed it!

Stovetop fire.

Every week the same!

Spreydon’s fire crew had the

unpleasant job of removing a

bicycle brake handle from a bike

last Tuesday.

That bit sounds easy.

But the handle was impaled

through the rider’s hand at the

time.

The delicate use of a serious

pair of bolt cutters allowed the

patient to be taken to hospital

for expert surgery to remove the

handle from hand.

Finally, someone in Aranui

was cold on Wednesday night.

They opened the boarded up

fireplace and lit a fire.

It was boarded for a reason.

No flue, no chimney!

Ruthlessness recognised

• By Andrew King

CASHMERE HIGH footballer

Eddie Wilkinson is known as

a gentleman off the pitch and a

ruthless competitor on it.

His fierceness on the field has

seen him named in the national

under-19 team to travel to the

United States in April.

“I play my best out there. There

are no friends on the field,” he

said.

Cashmere coach Craig Squire

said he is a very talented player

and an absolute gentleman off

the pitch.

“He is one of the most polite,

respectful people I have had the

pleasure of teaching in the past

15 years,” he said.

“He will do great things in the

sport.”

The 17-year-old had a great

season for Cashmere High’s

first XI, which placed 14th at the

national tournament in Napier

last month.

Wilkinson was named Cashmere’s

most valuable player for

the tournament.

He also played for FCTwenty11

this year after competing for

Halswell United since age 9.

He is looking forward to playing

overseas, saying it was a great

way to get noticed.

“I want to get into a college

over there and play football

professionally, or at least get it

Love your dentures

Is it time to swap your generic denture appearance

for a beautiful, natural looking smile?

Internationally renowned dental

technician Richard Greenlees,

PGDipCDTech (University of Otago) of

Lovebite is the person to call.

His special point of difference is

rebuilding what he calls the Oral

Architecture, the structure and shape of

a patient’s face that is often lost following

years of wearing dentures.

Lovebite dentures address problems

that can arise due to years of the patient

wearing incorrectly fitting or poorly

functioning dentures, such as poor

occlusion (the way the teeth come

together), aesthetics, function and

hygiene.

An intricate knowledge and

understanding of facial features allows

Richard to return facial tissues back to the

correct position, reform lips, and restore

beauty and confidence.

Richard provides a friendly, discreet

service and personally guides his patients

through the transformation process to

create teeth with small nuances in the

fabrication, colour and shape.

Carmen, a recent patient said in a

thank you letter to Richard, “I highly

recommend your craftsmanship to anyone

wanting a natural looking smile. Because

you do your work in front of your client,

one is able to see how meticulous and

dedicated you are to ending up with a top

class result. My dentures are amazing.

They look like one’s own natural teeth. So

much time, effort and energy went into

the end result. Simply the best.”

Richard’s patients have varying needs,

from full denture replacement, to first

time immediate dentures, implant

supported dentures and metal partial

dentures.

Since he started making teeth in

1980 Richard has travelled extensively,

accumulating vast knowledge through

training and working in Japan, and

running his own practice in the

prestigious Harley Street, London for 15

years. He continues to teach his world

leading techniques globally.

Richard also creates porcelain crowns

and veneers, working with like-minded

dental professionals.

A beautiful new Lovebite smile

resembles nature and reflects the patient’s

character. It boosts confidence and helps

patients to look and feel years younger.

of stunning Lovebite dentures, visit

lovebite.com.

BEFORE

AFTER

These before and after photographs

perfectly highlight the facial

rejuvenation that can be achieved

with a Lovebite denture (right).

The patient’s facial structure and

shape have been restored, with her

beautiful new smile transforming

the way she looks and feels.

STUNNING: A beautiful new denture for

a young female patient

These stunning lovebite full upper and

lower dentures have been expertly crafted by

internationally-recognised dental technician

Richard Greenlees at his Christchurch studio.

The combination of Richard’s skill, experience

(including 15 years in London’s prestigious

Harley Street) knowledge and revolutionary

techniques allow him to create beautiful

bespoke false teeth that truly resemble those

in nature and reflect each patient’s individuality

and unique character.

Papanui

High School

As the weather gets warmer and the

evenings get longer it is the ideal time to get

out of the house and learn something new

and meet some new people by taking part

in one of the wide range of nightclasses on

offer at Papanui High School for Term 4

beginning from Tuesday 24 October.

From Art to Yoga and everything in

between we are sure regardless of your

age or interest you will find something

to tempt you. Classes at Papanui High

School are held in a warm, friendly relaxed

environment and our tutors are supportive

and well qualified in their chosen fields.

A new course on offer is Creative Candle

Making which will teach you to create

your own soy container candles and

melts, either for yourself or ideal as a gift.

Discover more about soy wax, fragrance,

wick selection and trouble shooting

commom candle making issues. This is a

hands on course where you will make 3 full

sized scented candles, 6 melts, 5 tea lights

and 1 votive. The cost of all materials is

included in the course fee. This course is

being taught by Jane Alexander and will be

held at Papanui High School on Saturday 4

November between 10 am – 4 pm at a cost

of $148.

For further information and enrolment

in this or any of our Term 4 courses

please visit our website on www.papanui.

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.

Fast turnaround for

minor panel repairs

As we all know, having our car off the road for minor

panel repairs can be frustrating, but for customers of

SMART Repairs in Lichfield Street, it isn’t a problem.

“With our focus on fast turnaround,

getting customers back on the road

as quickly as possible is the way we do

business,” says owner Brian Caffell, who

runs the long-established panel shop

with his wife Maxine.

In addition, customers have the

benefit of a courtesy car, so they can stay

on the road while their vehicle is in the

workshop. There is also a free pick-up

and delivery service available if required.

Customers can be assured of topquality

workmanship at SMART

Repairs, with the workshop team having

over 40 years’ industry experience

between them, with services including

panelbeating, spraypainting, paintless

dent removal, (PDR) and mag wheel

repairs and painting.

As specialists in small to medium

panel repair work, no job is too small for

SMART Repairs, and with their friendly,

personal approach they make it easy for

customers who may be unsure what to

do if their vehicle has been scratched or

dented.

The team also provides quotes for all

insurance companies, and carry out

those repairs quickly and efficiently.

“We take pride in our work and ensure

that our customers are happy with the

results,” says Maxine.

SMART Repairs are currently looking

at expanding and incorporating a mobile

division, so they can come to you for

minor paint and interior trim repairs,

PDR and mag wheel repairs.

SMART Repairs is located at 272

Lichfield Street, at the Fitzgerald

Avenue end. Opening hours are

Monday to Friday, 8am-4.30pm.

vehicle, please call in, or phone
