Linwood College design in hands of award-winner • By Bridget Rutherford AN award-winning company that designed the St Andrew’s College chapel and the bus interchange will do the architecture for Linwood College’s redevelopment. Architectus has been awarded the contract for the full-school rebuild and redevelopment. <strong>The</strong> company’s other projects include the bus interchange, St Andrew’s chapel, the central city’s new Knowledge Centre, and more than 30 school projects across the country. Company director Carsten Auer will be the lead architect. His previous work includes Lyttelton Primary School’s master plan, the city’s Innovation Precinct spatial framework, St Cuthbert’s College performing arts centre and Auckland Grammar School’s sports complex. • By Andrew King POLICE SEIZED a rifle and knife from a vehicle they pulled over in the early hours of Wednesday. <strong>The</strong> suspicious vehicle was stopped on Holland St in Avonside at 3.33am. A police spokeswoman could not determine if the car was reported to police, or if it was stopped after being noticed by the patrolling officers. He said schools were more than places to learn – they helped shape the identity of the community. So any design had to reflect that and the values and culture of the community. “This project is special not only for its scale but in particular for the strong pedagogical vision developed by the college and the leadership role it is looking to undertake in the revitalisation of the eastern suburbs of Christchurch.” He said the project was personal for him as he lived in Redcliffs, which was part of Linwood’s catchment, and he wanted to contribute to shaping the future of the school. “I believe the current college leadership is working successfully to rebuild the confidence of all of their community in what Linwood College has to, and can, offer.” Principal Richard <strong>The</strong>y searched the vehicle and found a rifle in the boot and a knife. A 34-year-old man was arrested and charged with possession of an offensive weapon and unlawful possession of a firearm. He will appear in the district court on <strong>June</strong> 27. •<strong>The</strong> Australian man who died after a central city motel fire on <strong>June</strong> 14 was 44-year-old Jason Edward Edmundson said the awarding of the contract was a step forward in the redevelopment. <strong>The</strong> school’s buildings have reached the end of their lifespan, and it has carried out significant consultation with the community on how it could look and feel better. It wants to become the school of choice for students living in its catchment, including Sumner, Redcliffs, Mt Pleasant, and Lyttelton, many of whom travel to schools on the other side of town. <strong>The</strong> redevelopment comes after a limited statutory manager was asked to step into the school in 2014 to resolve issues between staff and management. Principal Margaret Paiti resigned in <strong>June</strong> 2015 after five years in the role. Physical building work was expected to begin on site next year. Police seize weapons; name fire victim Sillick. Mr Sillick suffered critical injuries in the blaze at the City Central Motel Apartments, on the corner of Barbadoes and Hereford Sts, at about 6.50am. Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Worner would not be drawn on what had caused the fire but said it was “not accidental.” Police have examined CCTV footage from the motel, and are not looking for anyone else connected.

Government officials are cracking down on the sale of fake merchandise during the tour. A Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment spokeswoman confirmed fake Lions tour gear had been seized before games in Christchurch, Dunedin and Rotorua. “A group of individuals have been selling items with unauthorised association with the Lions series.” MBIE tourism, sectors, regions and cities general manager Iain Cossar said it is “currently investigating a small number of incidents involving the sale of merchandise” and “three to four individuals” have been responsible for it. <strong>The</strong> spokeswoman said MBIE has served “a number” of breach notices under the Major Events Management Act 2007, and “continues to gather evidence should the ministry decide to prosecute.” MBIE has not encountered any people selling fake All Blacks merchandise before games. <strong>The</strong> series status as a major event under the Act means it has protection for specific words and emblems closely associated with the tour. $ 1 Reserve Over 100 cars at 2007 Mini Cooper $1 RESERVE 2009 Holden Commodore $1 RESERVE 2003 Audi TT $1 RESERVE 2011 Ford Kuga $1 RESERVE 2013 Great Wall X240 $1 RESERVE 2010 Toyota Camry $1 RESERVE 2010 Suzuki Swift $1 RESERVE 2011 Great Wall X240 $1 RESERVE 2008 Audi A4 $1 RESERVE SCENT: Brian and Colleen Briggs in their own garden, which has won many awards. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Retirees bid to revive Garden City image • By Gabrielle Stuart A GROUP of gardeners are cultivating a plan to put Christchurch back on the map as the Garden City – a public garden the size of nine rugby fields, created by retirees. <strong>The</strong> plan has been designed by Christchurch Beautifying Association members, who are working with private developers to create it. <strong>The</strong>ir plan is to create a 50-60 unit retirement village, where residents would all be gardeners. Each unit would have its own garden, maintained by the owner – but the gardens would all be connected and open to the public, forming a giant public park. On Monday, association president Ron Andrew and former president Brian Briggs put the plan to the city council’s social and community development committee. Committee chairman Phil Clearwater said staff had been asked to look at ways the city council could be involved and support the project. That could include building a community hall or facility in the park, or helping the group through the consenting process to speed it up. Mr Briggs said he already had a list of people interested in buying units in the village, and had met with developers willing to build it. “I often talk to people about going into a retirement home, and they say, ‘no, I definitely won’t do that, because I won’t have a garden’,” he said. <strong>The</strong> plan would allow people to downsize into a supported living environment, while still giving them space to be creative and contribute to the community, he said. “It would be a real dream come true for a lot of people,” he said. <strong>The</strong> group is currently working with building company G.J Gardner Homes, and are looking at creating the village on a 9.5ha piece of land near Papanui. Mr Briggs said each unit would be designed to look like a little cottage, but would have a fully modern interior. <strong>The</strong> estimated cost of each unit title would be about $350,000, he said. Once set up, the village would be run by a body corporate. Mr Andrew said he believed the village could be a huge asset for the city. After Christchurch won the Garden City of the World title in 1997, thousands of people travelled from as far as the United States and Japan to visit, he said. He hoped the village could become a similar attraction. •Gardening, page 37 1999 Holden Commodore $1 RESERVE 2016 Chery J11 $1 RESERVE OTHER VEHICLES INCLUDED IN AUCTION ALL $1 RESERVE 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer 2008 Mazda Demio 2008 Daihatsu Terios 2008 Toyota Corolla 2008 Toyota Corolla 2007 Subaru Impreza 2007 Mitsubishi Colt 2007 Toyota Vitz 2007 Hyundai TB 2006 Honda Stream 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander 2006 Nissan Teana 2006 Audi A4 2006 Ford Escape 2006 Volkswagen Polo 2006 Ssangyong Kyron 2006 Land Rover Freelander 2006 Volkswagen Golf 2006 Holden Barina 2008 Volkswagen Polo 2.6 $1 RESERVE 2013 Mitsubishi Mirage $1 RESERVE 2006 Toyota Corolla 2006 Toyota Avensis 2006 Toyota Corolla 2006 Holden Commodore 2005 Peugeot 307 2005 Volvo S40 2005 Suzuki Swift 2005 Citroen C4 2005 Honda Jazz 2005 Ford Fiesta 2004 Toyota Estima 2004 Holden Commodore 2004 Jaguar X-Type 2004 Volkswagen Golf 2004 Mazda 3 2004 Honda Accord 2004 Volkswagen Golf 2004 Suzuki Aerio 2004 Subaru Legacy 2003 Subaru Legacy 2003 Subaru Forester 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante 2003 Mazda 6 2003 Toyota Camry 2002 Holden Commodore 2002 Nissan Skyline 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer 2002 BMW 318Ti 2002 Auti TT 2002 Volkswagen Beetle 2002 Subaru Legacy 2002 Honda Fit 2001 BMW 318i 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante 2001 Nissan Wingroad 2000 Mitsubishi Dion 2000 BMW 320i 2000 Subaru Legacy 2011 Holden Epica $1 RESERVE 1987 Holden Commodore VL $1 RESERVE 2000 Ford Laser 2000 Nissan Pulsar 2000 Alfa Romeo 146 2000 Mitsubishi Pajero 1999 Subaru Legacy 1999 Ford KA 1999 Nissan Presage 1999 Mercedes Benz 1999 Nissan Primera 1999 Mazda Demio 1999 Hyundai Sonata 1998 Honda CRV 1998 Toyota Corolla 1998 Nissan Largo 1997 Mazda Famnilia 1997 Subaru Impreza 1997 BMW 323i 1997 Nissan Primera 1996 Mercedes Benz Auction vehicles selling from 7pm on Monday 26th <strong>June</strong>.
