Midge solution stagnates

Residents

lose patience

as swarms

get bigger

• By Sophie Cornish

BROMLEY residents continue

to be frustrated by midges due to

the length of time measures to

solve the problem are taking.

City council manager of operation

three waters and waste

Adam Twose said the Integrated

Midge Management Plan should

show a reduction in the number

of midges over time, as the various

aspects come together.

The plan to manage the midge

plague includes methods such as

earthworks, civil installations,

vegetation planting/screening,

objective sampling of midge

numbers, and chemical control.

One of the Bromley wastewater

treatment plant’s oxidation ponds

was drained recently, a new

method which aimed to expose

and dry sediment at the bottom

of the pond to kill the larvae in

the early stages of the midge life

cycle.

However, the installation of infrastructure

to drain the second

pond may not be ready until the

2019-2020 summer season.

Shortland St resident Janet

Profit has been calling for a

solution to the midge problem

since 2007.

drained this summer, Mrs Profit

said the problem is worse than

ever due to the hot temperatures.

“They drive you insane

. . . some days are absolutely diabolical,”

she said. Along with her

neighbours, Mrs Profit claimed

they are suffering from “MD –

midgey depression.”

On some days, she is unable to

open the windows in her home

without a midge invasion, forcing

her to use air conditioning to

keep cool. This drives her power

bill up higher than it would usually

be in winter, she said.

THERE’S ONE nice, happy ending story

on page 4 today.

Hank, the border collie cross we

featured over Christmas has found a

home.

Hank was on our front page promoting

the Dogwatch Sanctuary Trust’s 2018 calendar.

He wasn’t in it – only canines that have been rehomed make

the cut.

Hank had been at Dogwatch since October, and the people

who run the deserving organisation needed a family with the

patience to take him – Hank has a few quirks.

That’s not uncommon in dogs that end up in the pound;

they’ve usually been pushed from pillar to post before they get

there. So a new start for the two year-old, who also has a new

name: Gus. Good stuff. – Barry Clarke

Rockabilly gets green light

• By Sophie Cornish

AFTER TWO months of doubt,

the Rockabilly Show and Shine

has been granted permission

to use Rawhiti Domain for the

next three years.

Organiser Robbie Baigent

received written confirmation

of the dates from

the city council last

week.

The event will be

held on November

10.

Robbie

Baigent

However, its

future at the

domain was

unclear when the

Christchurch Archery Club,

which also uses the domain,

contested several dates put

forward by Mr Baigent.

Archery club president Dave

Henshaw said there were health

and safety and noise concerns

with the event.

Mr Henshaw said the noise

from last year’s event was

“exceptional”.

Mr Baigent feared the event,

which has previously brought

more than 8000 people to New

Brighton, would have to find

a new location, potentially

splitting its attendance.

BID TO STAY: The Rockabilly Show and Shine will be held at the Rawhiti Domain for the next

three years after gaining permission from the city council.

He said he “certainly feels

less stress” now the dates have

been confirmed and organisers

will now start marketing and

finding sponsors.

“We’ve put a lot of time, work

and effort into this event . . .

it’s nice to have this side of it

worked out and actually be able

to plan the event and enjoy it,”

he said. Mr Baigent had received

“hundreds” of emails from both

New Brighton residents and

car communities, and without

their support, securing the dates

wouldn’t have been possible.

Both the archery club and

show organisers were required

to make compromises in

order for the show to work.

Mr Baigent said he is “very

grateful” to the archery club. Mr

Henshaw said everything had

been “sorted all through.”

“We had to change some

programmes around, it may

take a while to get around but

it was something that we had

to do for the community,” Mr

Henshaw said.

Hank happy in new home

• By Julia Evans

CHRISTMAS CAME early for

Hank the border collie cross.

After featuring as poster boy

for Dogwatch Sanctuary Trust’s

2018 calendar and more than

two months at the trust, the

two-year-old was adopted on

December 24.

He starred on the front page of

the Nor’West News over Christmas.

So he now has a new home

– and a new name. He is now

called Gus.

His new owner said he had

come a long way in a short space

of time – describing him as a

“dolphin” in the water.

“He is very affectionate and

gaining more confidence as he

gets to know the neighbourhood.

He is very responsive to commands

and appears a quick and

willing learner.”

A PRESTONS subdivision

resident is attempting to relocate

two playgrounds to Muka Park,

to replace the flying fox which

was removed last year.

Following a controversial yearlong

debate within the community,

the flying fox was removed by

the city council in December, due

to noise and privacy complaints

from nearby residents.

Teacher Kate Taylor is wanting

to rehome two playgrounds from

her work, St Andrew’s College.

The mother of three said without

the flying fox, the Muka Park

playground has little to nothing

for her children to play on.

“There’s just not much for them

here . . . they mostly go down to

the school to play.”

“Some of the stuff (play

equipment) down there is not

appropriate, especially for

toddlers, they’re not safe,” she

said.

St Andrew’s is planning to

get new playgrounds and is

looking to sell two to Mrs Taylor

“I think further down the

track when he is completely

chilled he will enjoy his new

home.”

The bright, lovely and playful

animal, according to trust manager

Pam Howard, had

been without a home since

October.

Mrs Howard said many people

had wanted to adopt Gus, but

just weren’t a right fit.

Gus had been at the city council

pound before arriving at the

trust, and had some “quirks” she

said.

She described Gus as “resource

guarder” – a dog that growls and

snarls at other animals and people

to stay away from an object it

might be guarding.

“He just needs an owner that

understands when dogs have

quirks you work with them and

you don’t set them up to fail,”

Mrs Howard said.

for $5000.

Mrs Taylor made a deputation

at a Coastal-Burwood Community

Board meeting last year and

received support from the board

who informed her of how to go

about the process.

“I went to the council because

obviously they’re not replacing it

(the flying fox), so how about we

meet in the middle. We get the

equipment if we fundraise for it

but they can put it in and do that

A PARKLANDS woman is

warning others to be careful

after an “uncomfortable”

encounter with a man who had

come to her home to view a

Tania Vincent posted a notice

a room for rent.

A man replied saying he was

interested in the room. She left

her sister’s place to meet him

about 6pm on January 22.

But when she met him at her

Puhara Ave home, he made

comments to her that made her

“feel uncomfortable”, allegedly

offering her money for sex.

She was able to get away from

him when another man collecting

donations for the local surf

property.

now, pretending the man was

She called the police from her

number of calls from the man

and saw him on her front door

step across the road. She called

the police again.

He left after being confronted

by Mrs Vincent and her neighbour.

Police went to his address and

spoke with him. They warned

him about his behaviour and

trespassed him from the street.

She said she wants others to

be aware of her incident so people

can be safe in the future.

“I now feel unsafe, like he will

come back,” she said. “I want

others to know about this as it

could be happening more than

we know.”

Author tells tale of godwits

Fire rages, homes at risk

A WELL-KNOWN local

children’s writer is about to

release another book – on the

godwits, Southshore and the

estuary.

Written by Marlene Bennetts

and illustrated by Trish Bowles,

Yolaska the Godwit is set to be

released at the New Brighton

Museum on February 27.

It is a children’s picture book

about a young godwit migrating

to New Zealand with the rest of

his flock.

Mrs Bennetts, 80, was made

a Member of the New Zealand

Order of Merit for services to

literature in the 2003 Queen’s

Birthday Honours.

Mrs Bowles has illustrated

more than 30 children’s books.

The pair have worked together

on a number of books, including

a series of small environmental

stories about endangered species

which have been endorsed by the

Department of Conservation.

This includes another book

about godwits, Skalaska’s New

Home, which was published in

2005. It has been reprinted five

times, translated into Maori and

purchased by the city council to

put into local schools.

Yolaska the Godwit has been

written, illustrated, printed and

published locally and covers the

impact of the earthquakes on the

natural environment.

It also discusses pollution and

endangered species and may

also be used in schools as an

educational tool.

Godwits fly 11,500km non-stop

every year from Alaska to New

Zealand and arrive every February

and March.

Richmond public garden

shed raided by thieves

• By Sophie Cornish

THIEVES HAVE stolen most

of the supplies owned by the

Richmond Community Garden.

More than $550 of garden

tools was stolen in what garden

co-ordinator Rachel Thwaites is

calling a “major set back.”

Following an attempted breakin

at the storage shed before

Christmas, the group moved the

tools.

Less than 72 hours later, the

theft happened.

The theft was discovered by a

group which was undertaking

its monthly volunteering in the

garden and found there were no

tools to use.

“All our hand tools are gone,

we were digging with sticks from

the ground,” said Mrs Thwaites.

She said the group of volunteers

who work on the garden

are absolutely devastated.

“It impacts on the community,

it hurts the community at the

end of the day,” she said.

The garden is run from donations

and grants.

Produce which grows in the

garden is given to food banks,

such as the Delta Community

Trust, Christchurch City Mission

and the New Brighton

Community Fridge.

Tools such as secateurs, loppers,

forks, spades, a weed-eater,

30m hose and reel, and sprinklers

were taken.

Mrs Thwaites said the garden

will rely on the donation of items

and funds from the community

but requests people keep an eye

out for items with a ‘RCGT’ label

on them.

East MP Poto

Williams

discusses her

reasons for

participating

in the Coast to

Coast

WHEN I’M asked why I’m

participating in the Kathmandu

Coast to Coast, I know very

clearly what has motivated me to

do this.

Trust me, it’s not a love

of waking pre-dawn to ride

a bicycle, or to pound the

pavement for kilometre

after kilometre, but what

opportunities might come from

this event for my community.

One thing I know for sure,

being physically active is

important for your mental

well-being. It’s one the of the

ideas that Sir John Kirwan

promotes for people impacted by

depression. You don’t necessarily

have to climb mountains, but

if you’re keeping fit, walking,

running, swimming or just

getting out into the fresh air, it

helps your mental health.

This event is special and

requires a lot of resources, access

to good training and equipment.

Not something we can all do

TRAINING: Poto Williams with city councillor Glenn

Livingstone on top of Mt Herbert Te Ahu Patiki as the pair train

for the Coast to Coast next month.

without help. I think about

this in the context of young

people wanting to engage in any

physical or sports activity, and

how some of us may be excluded

from participation due to a lack

of resource or support.

I recently met a young woman

from my electorate who had

been chosen to represent her

Pacific nation at a sports event

to be held in Auckland. She is

obviously talented and sport

keeps her focussed and engaged.

She couldn’t attend this event

because she couldn’t afford the

airfare and accommodation

costs. There are a lot of young

people who don’t participate

because sports shoes are

expensive or club fees are

expensive.

I want my competing in the

Coast to Coast to send a message

to others who can help, such as

businesses or organisations – and

it is that they should. Because

sport can be life-changing for

our young people because it’s

about discipline, leadership,

self-reliance and resilience. I will

be donating my bike and cycle

equipment to a young competitor

for next year’s event.

The third reason I am

competing is because it ends

in New Brighton at the pier. I

have done most of my training

in the eastern suburbs. New

Brighton is the heart of outdoor

activity in Christchurch.

The surf life saving, surfing,

swimming, kayaking, school

sports at Rawhiti Domain like

golf, the coast, estuary and

the opportunities that the red

zone land presents all tell me

we should be promoting sports

and outdoor activity as an

opportunity to revitalise our

area.

The new playground

has shown how the right

development can bring people

to the area. This has to be

supported with the right

infrastructure, transportation,

car parking, rubbish bins, good

planning and an overall strategy.

But it is possible.

And that’s why I’m doing

the Coast to Coast, because it’s

important that I believe in the

possibility and opportunity of

this area enough to put my body

to the test for it.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

New premises

for car light

specialists

NEW

LOCATION

95

gasson st

Long-established car light specialists,

Braxton Car Lights, are now shining their

lights from a sparkling new address – just

around the corner from their familiar

Brougham Street site.

Just prior to Christmas, the business

moved from 325 Brougham Street to 95

Gasson St, where they offer a brighter

showroom, easier access for their customers

and plenty of off-street parking.

“We’re all set up in our new premises,”

sales manager Richard Vernimmen says,

“and continuing to provide our customers

with an extensive range of replacement

lights for most Japanese, European and

New Zealand-made vehicles. We can cover

most vehicles on the road, and all our lights

are fully checked and in perfect working

order.”

If they don’t have it in stock, they can

source it from one of the other branches in

the nationwide BE Group, Richard says. BE

is one of New Zealand’s largest importers of

car, truck and commercial parts.

Braxton Car Lights also offers a repair

service for headlights, with their skilled

staff of three having 80 years’ experience

in the automotive trade between them.

They also specialise in light adjuster and

light conversion of American

car lights and their repair

service includes plastic

welding, drying out, and

re-silvering, re-sealing

and lens refurbishment.

Their services can also

be arranged through

your own local garage or

workshop.

So, next time you need

replacement car lights, call

into Braxton Car Lights’ bright new

showroom, 95 Gasson St, phone 0800 225

Belly dancing fun

for men & women

The new term of Beginners belly dance

classes at Kashmir Belly Dance in South

Brighton starts in February. The class will

be on Monday evenings from February 12

at 6.30pm, while a mixed class (men and

women) will be on Thursday evenings from

February 15 at 7.30pm.

Anyone enrolling and pre-paying by

February 10 will receive a $20 discount.

Enrolments are through the website, www.

bellyraqs.co.nz.

The eight, 75-minute classes comprise an

hour of dance movement and 15 minutes of

background information on belly dancing,

with videos and music.

With one husband and wife already signed

up, instructor Kashmir is encouraging more

men to join the mixed class.

“Belly dancing is not just for women,” she

says. “It is fun and enjoyable for everyone.”

Belly dancing can also be a step on the way

to a new fitness regime, and participants get

to know how their body works through the

various movements, Kashmir says.

Kashmir Belly Dance is located at 8

Drake Street, South Brighton.

Traditional

social dancing

of Scotland

For hundreds of years Scottish Country

Dancing was enjoyed at every level of

society, from royal ballrooms to village halls.

Over the last 100 years it has been developed

to maintain its unique style and music, while

keeping pace with the modern world.

There are Scottish Country Dance clubs

on every continent of the world, which is

testament to the universal appeal of the

dancing. Here in the Christchurch area there

are nine clubs providing the opportunity to

enjoy this pastime Monday to Thursday, plus

a children’s class on Saturday mornings and

combined dances most Saturday evenings.

The health benefits of Scottish Country

Dancing are documented. The physical

movements exercise the body. The patterns

of the dances are great for keeping the brain

on its toes. The music, which lifts the spirits,

and the social interaction complete the

package.

Come and give it a go.

House of Cards is a day-time bridge club

situated in Merivale. Our philosophy is to

provide a friendly, family-type environment

for bridge players.

Bridge is not only a wonderful, stimulating

game, it is also splendidly social. We have

had much pleasure in seeing many new

friendships flourish over the years.

House of Cards is especially renowned

for its teaching and we have taught literally

thousands of beginners as well as improvers,

in Christchurch and around New Zealand.

We have run several national teachers’

conferences and have been instrumental

in creating a national standard for bridge

teachers.

We have also written a whole series of

bridge books for new and improving players

which are widely used in New Zealand,

Australia and the United Kingdom.

We are a friendly, enthusiastic team who

welcome new players. We have four sessions

dedicated especially for the novice player, so

you needn’t feel nervous!

Just step on the mat…

This is the advice given to people who

want to learn aikido, Aikido Shinryukan

Canterbury’s chief instructor Andrew

Williamson says.

“It really is that easy. Of course, every

new student is naturally apprehensive about

beginning a Japanese martial art – we have

all ‘been there’. But to begin you need to take

that first step and it really is not that scary.”

Beginners are eased into training through

basics classes.

“Step by step we build your knowledge.

We focus on beginners understanding the

fundamentals of aikido so they can enjoy

developing their skills. Anyone can do

WORKOUT,

SWIM, RELAX

aikido regardless of age or fitness,” Andrew

says.

“We want students to develop technically

and physically as quickly as they are

capable. We can then introduce them to

more advanced training and international

instructors and build on the total knowledge

base held in our group.”

Aikido Shinryukan Canterbury offers daily

classes for adults and children in Burnside

and Linwood.

For February, beginners may train

for just $20. For more information

Line up for fun –

learn to Line Dance

The dance floor – a place where bills and

responsibility don’t exist, where stress is

gone and nothing matters but the music. The

dance floor is freedom, say the Cathedral

City Line Dancers.

A recent German study tested people

who tried different forms of exercise and

then measured their hippocampuses (the

memory centre of their brains) and those

who did Line Dancing were better protected

from dementia and memory loss.

So, if you like to dance, want a social life

with a friendly bunch of people and a lot of

laughs while exercising your brain, then Line

Dancing could be just what you are looking

for. They even cater for people with two left

feet.

You can have all this, plus meet new

friends by joining Cathedral City Line

Dancers and learning to dance with Mary.

dancing for beginners is a cultural experience

as well as a gentle form of exercise and it is

not just for women. Men are very welcome.

The Nordic walking course begins a bit later

Hagley Park and the gardens which are so

close. Kazuko is a multi-talented addition

to our tutor list and her Japanese Culture

course will include music, drums and harp

included, food, Ikebana, calligraphy etc.

the music theory class is for beginners but

is also for those who think they may need

a refresher to help then regain skills and

confidence in reading music.

The Social issues soapbox is a series

of one off sessions with speakers on the

Environment, Housing, new Science,

have include Sam Mahon, Dr’s Sylvia Nissen,

Exercise

sharpens young

adult brains

Regular physical activity improves brain function

even in young adults considered in their prime

and at the height of cognitive ability, according to

a University of Otago study.

A body of research already exists showing

aerobic exercise improves brain function

in older adults, but there is a limited

amount of literature on how it affects

young adults.

The Otago researchers, led by

Department of Psychology Senior

Lecturer Dr Liana Machado, set out to

test the oft-held belief that the brains of

young adults in their prime might not

benefit as much as older people from

regular sustained exercise.

They took 52 tertiary students, aged

between 18 to 30, and put them through

a series of cognitive tests on a computer

while measuring oxygen availability in

the frontal lobe of their brains, as well as

their self-reported exercise frequency.

Dr Machado says their “surprising”

findings, just published online in the

journal Psychophysiology, show that

both blood supply to the brain and

cognitive functioning appear to benefit

from regular exercise in young adults.

“This provides compelling evidence

that regular exercise, at least five days per

week, is a way to sharpen our cognitive

ability as young adults – challenging

the assumption that living a sedentary

lifestyle leads to problems only later in

life,” she says.

The research also provides potential

insight into understanding why people

who regularly engage in aerobic exercise

tend to function better on a cognitive

level.

“I think the idea that young people do

not have to worry about exercising since

they are in their prime developmentally

is rapidly being overturned by mounting

evidence that even the brains of young

adults can benefit from regular exercise,”

she says.

“The exercise could involve brisk

walking or more vigorous activity, and

could be made up of a few 10 minute

bouts of exercise, rather than one single

block of exercise,” she says.

The researchers also found that body

mass index was not a key factor in how

well the brain functioned, indicating that

regular engagement in physical activity

may be more important than body

weight.

Dr Machado says she had noticed

over the years that university students

appeared progressively less fit.

“I wondered whether we might find

significant relationships between exercise

levels, oxygen availability in the brain,

and cognition in the young adults, but

no studies had considered this in healthy

young adults.”

These findings come at a time of

increased scientific focus on links

between exercise and cognitive health in

older adults.
