have

‘quietened

down’ –

community

constable

• By Emily O’Connell

ANTI-SOCIAL behaviour at the

Riccarton bus lounge has slowed

down, according to a community

constable.

The lounge, on the corner of

Riccarton Rd and Division St, has

been plagued by misbehaving young

people since it opened in December

2015.

A working party, consisting of

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board members, business

and landowners, police, community

groups and residents’ association

representatives, made 19 recommendations

to help solve the issues.

They included introducing an

anti-loitering bylaw, playing music

in Division St to attract more people

to the area, and changing the current

bus lounge wi-fi policy.

But before the measures have been

put in place, the problems appears

to have “quietened down”.

Constable Aaron Thorn said

“things have been really quiet

around Division St at the bus exchange.”

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

Chapel surprise for St Margaret’s

• By Julia Evans

AFTER 20 years without, St

Margaret’s College has a new

chapel.

And the building’s

connection to the school is

almost 90-years-old.

Waiau’s Satterthwaite family

moved a chapel from their farm

to the Merivale college grounds

in the early hours of Wednesday

morning, as a gift to departing

executive principal Gillian

Simpson.

“My mother-in-law, Diana

Satterthwaite, went to St

Margaret’s and she’s 90 now

. . . there’s a lot of history,”

chapel owner Gina

Satterthwaite (nee Gough) said.

Before the chapel was moved

to Waiau, it was the local

church in Rotherham, where

Diana Satterthwaite grew up,

she said.

Mrs Satterthwaite said there

had been a girl from her family,

or her husband’s family, at St

Margaret’s every decade since

her mother-in-law began.

“Literally, people in the

family from five-years-old to

90-years-old have been a part

of the school,” she said. That

included herself, her daughters,

her mother and aunts.

The Waiau chapel was also

where she and her husband

were married.

“But the main reason is that

it’s just nice to know that it’s

going to be enjoyed

. . . it’s so important to me

that St Margaret’s gave me the

opportunity to help like this,”

she said.

The college has been without

a chapel for more than 20 years.

One of Mrs Simpson’s goals was

to get a chapel back on school

grounds before she left at the

end of term two.

“I have been looking for a

small chapel for 10 years and

since the major rebuild we had

put the project on the backburner,”

she said.

But the school organised the

chapel to be moved without

Mrs Simpson’s knowledge; she

didn’t know until it arrived.

“This was a complete surprise

RELOCATION:

The chapel

spent more

than an hour

on the back

of two trucks

driving from

Waiau to St

Margaret’s

College on

Papanui Rd. ​

and presented to me as a fait

accompli,” Mrs Simpson said.

The building had to be split

in half and loaded onto two

separate trucks before being

reassembled on site.

She said it was an “immense

honour” to see her dream

become a reality right at the end

of her tenure.

It will be renamed Te Whare

Hauora (The House of Wellbeing).

talks about

quarries in the west and

who makes decisions on

them

IN A recent interview with

Environment Canterbury’s

new chairman, Steve Lowndes,

he stated that the public

perception of ECan was not very

favourable, but ECan is bound

by Government policy.

In part he is correct, in that

Gerry Brownlee the Minister

for Earthquake Recovery at the

time of the District Plan sent

a directive to the city council

to allow for a more permissive

regime. (As an aside, as soon

as this regime entered the leafy

suburb of Ilam with a potential

funeral parlour, he is calling for

a judicial review.)

However, Government policy

does not include allowing the

aquifers to become contaminated

nor does it include allowing

residents to develop silicosis

because of the proximity, and

number of quarries. Neither

does it include allowing the

entire south-west rural area

to become one great quarry

pit.

In recent times there has

been a multitude of resource

consent applications for quarries

and all of them successful

because ECan’s and city

council’s interpretation of policy

and the new rules appears to

be one of we must approve the

consent.

The recent decision by Judge

Borthwick to overturn the consent

in the Harewood Gravels

case appears to suggest their

interpretation is misguided.

Her decision emphasised the

cumulative effects of so many

quarries and the social impact

on communities.

Perhaps it’s time for decisionmakers

to become accountable

which may turn their minds

to stop perpetuating decisions

which have a major impact on

communities. In the meantime,

CHRISTMAS CAME early for

Hank the border collie cross.

After featuring as poster boy

two-year-old was adopted on

December 24.

He starred on the front page of

“He is very affectionate and

He is very responsive to commands

and appears a quick and

“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.

Aurora Centre repair work delayed

• By Julia Evans

UPGRADE AND repair work

on the Aurora Centre will not

be finished for a month longer

than anticipated.

The performing arts centre,

on the site of Burnside High

School, has been undergoing

weather tightness and earthquake

damage repairs since the

beginning of January.

But due to the complexity of

the work, the building which

was expected to be complete by

February, won’t be open until

at least March

with a final

date yet to be

confirmed,

principal Phil

Holstein said.

He said while

the repair work

was going on, Phil Holstein

the school was

also taking the opportunity to

spend time doing “necessary”

upgrades to the centre.

The school has spent $2 million

on the upgrades, which

includes a new air conditioning

system and refreshing the paint

job on the building’s exterior,

as well as some smaller internal

work.

“It was definitely time to

upgrade . . . I’d heard from a few

people the heating and cooling

definitely needed work on it,”

Mr Holstein said.

But with the delay, he said

there would be some interruption

when students returned

from the summer holiday at the

start of February.

“We tried to start and finish

it over the holiday to minimise

disruption . . . but with this kind

of work you always anticipate

delays,” he said.

Work on the 700-seat performing

arts centre is part of

a $24 million repair and redevelopment

plan at the school,

which includes several of the

school’s other buildings.

Once completed, Mr Holstein

said the board would be able

to begin “the master planning

stage” of the school’s post-quake

redevelopment.

“We’re one of the last schools

in the city to start on our master

plan,” he said.

Mr Holstein said the upgrade

work on the Aurora Centre is

not only important to the school

but the wider community too.

The building was a key space

following the February 22, 2011,

earthquake. It was one of the

only spaces to host events left in

the city.

“It’s a significant building

for Burnside but also for the

city post-quake ,” Mr Holstein

said.

Building robot to beat beach mess

• By Julia Evans

E WEN Wong doesn’t want to

grow up in a world polluted by

plastic.

So the 15-year-old Burnside

High School student has begun

designing a robot to detect

“While it’s still in early stages,

I’ve already had a lot of support

their expertise which is really

E Wen said.

She’s named her robot BIRD,

fortunately it’s also shaped like

a bird.

“As part of this, I am

designing an unmanned aerial

vehicle capable of detecting and

locating macro-plastics such

as plastic bags and bottle tops

using either laser diodes or

machine learning software to

rapidly autonomously identify

rubbish from a camera feed,” she

said.

The plastic will then be tagged

and linked to a crowd sourced

clean-up app that guides rubbish

collectors to dispose of it, she

said.

“It’s only in the design stage

at the moment, but it’s pretty

cool,” she said. “I like the way

Straight sets win

PAPANUI’S DIEGO Quispe-

Barrett in straight sets to lift the

12 and under national title on

Thursday.

Played at Wilding Park, Linwood,

the tournament saw competitors

from all over the country

vie for singles and doubles titles.

Hillview Christian School’s

Duncan McCall beat Auckland’s

Jack Chapman in a play-off for

third, 6-1, 3-6, 8-10, meaning

Christchurch players took all

three spots on the podium.

Diego, who plays for the

Waimairi club, went through the

tournament without dropping a

set, showing great ability to get

past Liam, 6-3, 6-2, in the final.

He beat Wellington’s Tom Bevan,

6-2, 6-1, in the opening round

before sweeping past Auckland’s

Jamie MacKenzie, 6-4, 6-2.

Diego then met South

Brighton’s Ethan Cooke in the

quarter-final and cruised to victory,

6-2, 6-2.

He played Jack in the semifinal

beating him, 6-2, 6-0.

Te Kura Hagley Park club

fantastic final, played between

two very good young players.

in the top three. I don’t think

that has happened before, we are

normally lucky to have one in

the final, so this is really great,”

he said.

More than just a taxi

The elderly and those with

disabilities often find it difficult to

access health appointments or take

care of shopping, things that can be

physically and mentally challenging for

them.

Helen Beddard understands how

difficult it can be. When her

mother’s mobility was compromised

by an injury, Helen stepped into

the role of driver and companion

where she learned first-hand, the

importance of someone retaining their

independence.

It was this experience that sparked

the idea of a driving service that went

further than a taxi or shuttle provider.

Lift Companion Driving is an

individual, personalised service

that helps the elderly, people with

disabilities, and parents who need

their children safely transported to

an activity such as a dance class or

afterschool programme.

Helen takes her clients where

they need to go, filling the role of

companion and assistant, a role that

gives her considerable satisfaction as

she is helping those less mobile regain

their independence.

“It’s a privilege to do something

positive for the community by making

someone’s life easier. You meet the

best people. They put a lift in my day

as much as I put a lift in their day,”

says Helen.

Lift Companion Driving is a licensed

transport service with a high emphasis

on safety right down to the vehicle

used. As driver, Helen is passenger

endorsed, has been police checked,

and has full first aid certificates.

Lift Companion Driving is a caring,

high quality bespoke yet affordable

service that assists clients to retain

their independence so they are less

reliant on family and friends.

Welcoming the

new school year

At JUST CUTS in The Hub, all the stylists are completely

on top of every new cut, fade, style and even hair tattooing.

Hundreds upon hundreds of children

will return to school soon, while many

more will start a new adventure as they

begin their educational journey.

Naturally they will want to look their

best, as will their parents and guardians,

and a quality haircut is part of that look,

which gives them confidence and helps

them feel ‘part of the crew’.

Once upon a time Mum just clipped away

with possibly her sewing scissors, and close

enough was always good enough. No more!

Even pre-schoolers have a sense of fashion

and style these days!

At JUST CUTS in The Hub, all the

stylists are completely on top of every new

cut, fade, style and even hair tattooing.

Your children, regardless of age, can be

completely confident of being totally cool

with one of their cuts. And if the children

are not sure of what they want, the salon

has an iPad to look up the latest on the net.

WATCH REPAIRS

• Replacement batteries

fitted from $8

• Strap replacement

JEWELLERY REPAIRS

• Re-thread broken necklaces

• Re-knot pearls

• Magnetic clasps fitted

• All jewellery repairs at any level

Of course, school also brings some

concerns regarding those dreaded ‘extra

passengers’ on your child’s head – nits!

Do not despair – at JUST CUTS they can

sort the problem for you. Their exclusive

Justice Anti Lice Treatment Shampoo &

Conditioner range contains Pyrethrum,

a natural plant extract that is hugely

successful in killing the intruders.

And they give you all the advice you will

need. Remember, these little nasties are

not fussy who they travel with. Clean or

dirty hair – it makes no difference to them!

Nor the weather – they survive in any

temperature from 5C to 40C. But, washing

towels and bed linen is a vital ingredient in

dealing with them.

So, visit JUST CUTS, where the happy,

family-friendly staff are looking forward

to meeting you. Open seven days a week,

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

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

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.

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

phone Andrew, 021 343 672, Website

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.

For details, see the advertisement on this

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.

The project to build a new Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre is

provided for in the Christchurch City Council’s Long Term Plan 2010-25. The Council at its meeting

on 24 August 2017 approved Denton Park as the preferred location for the new complex. This is

proposed to be sited on part of Denton Park fronting the Main South Road.

Denton Park is a recreation reserve subject to the provisions of the Reserves Act 1977. To ensure

the proper control, management, use and development, it is appropriate that the part of Denton

Park reserve on which the new complex is proposed to be sited is classified for the intended

purpose of community buildings. Also, the Denton Park Management Plan is required to be

amended to reflect this proposed development on Denton Park.

The Christchurch City Council thereby gives notice as follows:

Proposed Change of Reserve Classification - Part of Denton Park

It is proposed to change the reserve classification for the parcel of land specified in Schedule A

below from Recreation Reserve to Local Purpose (Community Buildings) Reserve in accordance

with Section 24(1)(b) of the Reserves Act 1977.

Schedule A

Part of Rural Section 41304, contained in Computer Freehold Register 504741, comprising 9766

square metres subject to survey and marked “A” on the plan below.

Changes to the Denton Park Management Plan

It is proposed to change the Denton Park Management Plan to accommodate the new Hornby

Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre and to incorporate other minor changes

and corrections.

An indicative plan of the area of land proposed to be subject to the proposed change in reserve

classification, and the draft proposed changes to the Management Plan, are available for inspection

during ordinary office hours at the Civic Offices, 53 Hereford Street, Christchurch. Copies can

also be inspected at the Hornby Library, Goulding Avenue, Hornby, and on the Council’s website

(www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay).

Persons or organisations interested in these proposals are asked to make submissions or

objections to the Council. These, clearly identifying which matter is being addressed, should be

made in writing no later than 5pm on Monday 26 March 2018.

You can do this:

• online at www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay;

• email ann.campbell@ccc.govt.nz;

• mail (no stamp required) to Freepost Authority No. 178, Ann Campbell, Engagement Advisor,

PO Box 73013, Christchurch 8154;

• hand deliver to Civic Offices, 53 Hereford Street.

Submitters should state in their submission if they wish to appear before a hearings panel to be

heard in support of their submission or objection.
