2 Tuesday September 6 2016 Inside FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK PEGASUS POST News......................................3-6 THERE IS something quite stirring about watching young people celebrate culture. Last week, about 70 schools took part in the Christchurch Primary Schools Cultural Festival and we had photographer Geoff Sloan there to capture some of the action (page 7). The performances were incredibly captivating. Congratulations to all who participated. There is a fantastic article on page 5 about a recently opened Wainoni gymnastics club that is thriving after opening with just 16 members. Finally, good and bad news for the seaside suburbs on the front page this week. The long awaited hot salt water pools are gaining momentum but the planned promenade has hit a few road bumps.

PEGASUS POST Tuesday September 6 2016 3 News Beach barbecue in Brighton A $9000 barbecue set in a shipping container and picnic tables have been installed near New Brighton’s whale paddling pool. The quirky concept came after Strategic Urban Rejuvenation Force fundraised $4000 for the unit and Westpac bank also made a $5000 donation. The new tables and barbecue were installed north of the New Brighton Library recently and their arrival celebrated at a community event. The Burwood-Pegasus Community Board decided that the city council’s transitional budget for New Brighton should be spent supporting the SURF project by providing four picnic tables with seating. The barbecue is a unique, prototype design by local architect Jason Mill. It is housed inside a container, making the barbecue accessible all year. Nearly 1000 votes were recorded over two voting sessions in March, which saw public barbecues, public art and shade, and an outdoor cinema or stage come out as favourites. SURF chairwoman Lesley BBQ IN A BOX: Barbecues can now be had by the community at any time of the year, thanks to a city council and SURF initiative. ​ Fulton said the community had been calling for an area like this for a long time and it was a great to see it finished after a six month process. Support from local trades people, who had contributed free or low-cost labour and materials, had been fantastic. “It’s a really exciting start for the new, New Brighton. Just making it more of a destination, and bringing people back and having them stay here longer,” she said. “We’re hoping the barbecue will be really well used. If it is, we’ll look to install a similar one elsewhere along the foreshore. If it’s not, we’ll move it somewhere else.” In Brief ROAD REPAIRS Woodham Rd in North Linwood is closed at the intersection with Worcester St for two more months for major wastewater repairs. Access to Woodham Rd, east of Worcester St, will be available through Sewell St and Rowcliffe Cres. Eastbound traffic on Woodham Rd will have to go through Ngarimu St. A no entry sign is in place in Woodham Rd at Kerrs Rd and at Ngarimu St. Hills Rd in Richmond at the Warrington St and Shirley Rd intersection is having road repairs done. Workers have been in place from Sunday. Hills Rd will be oneway northbound near the intersection and from last night will be one-way southbound. Detours will be in place. CORRECTION Last week, the Pegasus Post reported in a community event titled earthquake anniversary kite-fly and giveaway, that 100 kites were to be loaned to any children who wanted to take part. This was incorrect. The kites were not to be loaned out to anyone, they were to be given to anyone who wanted one. The Pegasus Post apologises for this error.
