SKATE PARK SITES RELEASED

• By Sarla Donovan

A SKATE park between

Ferrymead and Sumner is a

step closer with the release of a

shortlist with four suitable sites.

They are Sumner beach next

to the Surf Life Saving Club,

Scott Park in Ferrymead, the

old Redcliffs School grounds on

Main Rd, and the former Marine

Tavern site at 26 Nayland St,

Sumner.

The four were chosen from a

list of 57.

Public consultation on the sites

will take place from January 29

to February 26 with a decision

from the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

likely in April.

Sumner Green and Skate

group member Liza Sparrow said

it was “really thrilled” with the

sites. They all had merit, she said,

but the group would continue to

support a permanent site within

Sumner.

“It works well with the surf

and skate culture, is also good

for local business and it adds

vibrancy to the area.”

Board member Tim Lindley

said he had no particular preference.

“They would each offer quite

a different experience. It’s a case

of putting these out for consultation

– they’ve all got pluses and

minuses.”

Board member Darrell Latham

said the Sumner community had

warmed to the Nayland St site.

“Sumner locals have wanted

Matt Cockcroft lives next door

to the former Redcliffs School

site on Main Rd.

He said he would be happy for

a skate park to go there provided

it was in the middle of the park,

visible from the road and residents

could have input into the

design.

THERE’S ONE nice, happy ending story

on page 5 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

New building planned for library

THE OPAWA community is set

to get a new building to house its

voluntary library.

The city council has made a

decision to invest in a new facility

rather than repair the old.

The earthquake-damaged

Opawa Library building has

been closed since 2011, with the

volunteer-run library operating

out of interim premises in

the nearby Opawa Children’s

Library building.

Initially the city council had

considered repairing the library

building. However, it has come

up with a new plan that will

allow both the library and the

children’s library to shift into a

new, modern building.

“Providing a great place for

the Opawa Library has been a

priority for the city council,’’

said Lester Wolfreys, city council

head of community support,

partnerships and governance.

He said a recent comprehensive

costing of repairs to reinstate

the Opawa Library had

come in significantly over the

available budget.

“Fortunately, some recent

design and build proposals the

city council has received from

builders for other projects suggested

to us that we could do

something similar for Opawa

REBUILD: The Opawa voluntary library will get a new building after its former site was

earthquake-damaged. It has been working out of a temporary facility (right) for seven years.

that meets the community’s

needs for the money we have.”

“A design/build is effectively a

design competition – the community

representatives will work

closely with the city council to

agree on exactly what we need,

then we provide some very

precise direction to the market,”

he said.

“We want a modern, lowenergy

and accessible building

of about 200 sq m, and a design/

build contract is a cost-effective

way to get all of this in one package.”

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board chairwoman

Sally Buck said the board is very

supportive of both libraries and

has pushed for the new facility to

be a priority.

The new facility will be built

on the existing library site at 151

Opawa Rd.

Mr Wolfreys said the first

step is to work with the library

groups to decide what is required

to co-locate the libraries

and create an attractive and

accessible meeting place for the

community.

“With the original Opawa

Library a notable landmark in

the area for generations, there is

a strong desire for the new building

to feature heritage elements

from the original,’’ he said.

The design will be signed off

by a joint working group made

up of members of the board,

staff, and representatives from

the Opawa Library and the

Opawa Children’s Library.

Opawa Public Library Committee

president Marianne Field

said volunteers are eagerly looking

forward to getting things

back up and running as soon as

they can in a modern space that

works for everyone.

Lincoln Rd’s four-lane plan

Halswell

Residents’

Association

secretary David

Hawke writes

about roading

changes in

the area and

how they will affect the

community

THE FOUR-LANING of Lincoln

Rd, between Curletts and

Wrights Rds, looks to be going

ahead after years of languishing

unbudgeted in the city council’s

Long Term Plan.

The four-laning is for

bus priority, not cars. Once

completed, this will allow the

New Zealand Transport Agency

to four-lane its section of Lincoln

and Halswell Rds, again for bus

priority.

At one level, this is a great idea.

Giving buses the chance to make

their way without being caught

up in car traffic will shorten

travel time and make their travel

time more consistent. These

improvements will encourage

people to use the bus at peak

times.

The problem is what happens

when these buses (and all the

cars from the ever-growing

numbers of houses) arrive at the

gates of Addington Village – the

intersection with Whiteleigh

Ave? Although the need for the

improvement of this intersection

is well understood, we need plans

and action.

The stated reason for the fourlaning

is to enable increased bus

frequency and increased bus

reliability.

However, buses already run

every 15min, and we query how

much this frequency can be

increased. Our counts

show that buses are already

nearly full at peak

times, so it’s unlikely

that the improved reliability

can do much to

boost patronage in the

face of ongoing population

growth.

And again, what happens

when these buses

arrive at Addington?

There is clearly the

potential for Addington

Village to drown in a sea

of cars (and buses).

Halswell Residents’

Association would like to

see some outside-the-square

thinking about both transport

and work in the south-west of

Christchurch (including Prebbleton,

Lincoln, Rolleston), rather

than the piecemeal approach that

city council seems to be following.

This was an idea we got from

Wigram MP Megan Woods. It

fits well with the intent of the

Greater Christchurch Urban

Development Strategy, and seems

pretty good to us.

Some random ideas come t

mind too: Mixed-mode travel,

car-sharing, e-bike subsidies,

work-from-home schemes and

children going to their local

schools.

ABOUT 300 dead birds have

been discovered around the

Bromley oxidation ponds.

Initial indications suggest

the birds have fallen victim to

avian botulism, a disease which

causes paralysis in birds and

often results in death.

Outbreaks of avian botulism

are not uncommon in New

Zealand and other parts of the

world, and have occurred in

Christchurch previously.

The city council is removing

the dead birds in an attempt to

slow the spread of the disease.

It is also checking other

wetland areas to check whether

any of them have been affected

by the disease, which is caused

when birds eat toxin produced

by clostridium botulinum

bacteria.

Clostridium botulinum

naturally occurs in soils found

in ponds and wetlands. It is

harmless until the right environmental

factors occur.

Most avian botulism outbreaks

are caused by ducks

CHRISTMAS CAME early for

Hank the border collie cross.

After featuring as poster boy

two-year-old was adopted on

He starred on the front page of

“I think further down the

Somerfield woman’s exercise cure

PROGRESS: Less than a year after her knee and hip

replacements, Jude Nuttridge is walking tracks such as the

Rob Roy Glacier. ​

LAST Christmas, Jude

Nuttridge was awaiting

replacements – two knees and

one hip.

This Christmas, the

Somerfield resident completed

the Rob Roy Glacier track – as

well as a couple more walks that

she says “for me would have

been impossible.”

She credits a programme

available in south-west

Christchurch, which she says

changed her life forever.

She enrolled last year in Sport

Canterbury’s Be Active course

in Spreydon. In term 1 this year,

the same course is available

in the Wigram, Sockburn and

Hornby areas, as well as again at

Spreydon.

When Mrs Nuttridge arrived

at her first Be Active session,

she didn’t know a single person

there.

“It was a great mix of people.

If you’re numbering people’s

(fitness) from one to 10, there

were ones and 10s. The last

thing you want to turn up to is a

bunch of lycra-clad gurus.”

Be Active programme

participants appreciate the

variety of low-impact activities

on offer from circuit, boxing

and badminton, to tai chi

and Zumba. During group

discussions, participants share

ways of maintaining a healthy

lifestyle, drawing on support

from group leaders and fellow

participants.

According to Mrs Nuttridge,

“the other thing that stands

out in my mind were the

personalities of the two girls,

Sam and Abby. They were so

welcoming, so friendly.”

Mrs Nuttridge’s doctor had

given her two options for her

knee and hip pain – wait on

replacements or hold off as long

as you can by increasing your

mobility.

“It (Be Active) just gave me

some impetus to think I can do

this.

“I don’t need to let this

dominate.”

Mrs Nuttridge’s family

admires the commitment she

has made to getting active and

changing her life.

“I’ve got two grown-up

daughters who say ‘mum, it’s

like a miracle.’ I don’t feel like

a person who’s got an issue any

more. I feel like a person who

occasionally has sore knees and

sore hips. Yes, it can be a drag

and it can slow you down, but it

doesn’t stop you doing things.”

Mrs Nuttridge has been

grateful to the team at Sport

Canterbury for supporting her

to try new activities that benefit

all aspects of her life.

“You just do it and get it over

with. The more you do, the

more you can do. Be Active

gets your head into a different

space, which I think is really

important.”

“You stop being a victim and

start becoming the master of

your destiny.”

New year –

new family store

in Sydenham

For the Salvation Army’s Sydenham congregation and

the local community, the start of the New Year has been

marked with the launch of a new Salvation Army Family

Store in Sydenham.

Located on the corner of Carlyle and Gasson streets,

the store opened its doors on January 3, replacing the

small shop that was part of the church premises on the

Colombo/Southampton Street corner.

“Our spacious new store now sells furniture in addition

to clothing, bric-a-brac, books and toys. We would be

very grateful for any donations of furniture, which we

are happy to collect. The number to call is 332 8277 to

arrange collection, or alternatively it can be dropped

into the store,” operations manager Greg Kendrew says.

Greg is keen to acknowledge the generosity of people

in the community that donate items to the Salvation

Army, and also the 25 volunteers that work in the store.

“They make the place happen – we couldn’t do it

without them,” he says.

Proceeds from the sales go towards the range of

community services provided by the Salvation Army

in Sydenham. These include counselling, budgeting

advice, foodbank, and their DALTA Team, a group of

volunteers who work in the community three days a

week helping people with tasks around their home and

property, which they are unable to manage themselves.

“These are people who perhaps have fallen through the

cracks and have not had access to government agency or

other services. We look at their situation and step in to

provide solutions for them if appropriate,” Greg says.

The new Salvation Army Family Store in Sydenham

is open Monday to Friday, 9am-4.30pm and Saturday,

9.30am-1.30pm.

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.

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

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.

New classes

at Canterbury

WEA (Workers

Educational

Association)

The Canterbury WEA may be over one

hundred years old and be based in a character

building in the city but that does not mean it

has old ways of thinking or that the courses

it offers are old fashioned.

This term we are offering a number of new

classes to tweak your minds and bodies. Belly

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,

Politics, Economics etc and speakers we

have include Sam Mahon, Dr’s Sylvia Nissen,

Susannah Finlay, Libby Caygill and others.

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.
