Sydenham

Park to

reopen in

time for

Golden

Oldies event

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE REOPENING of Sydenham

Park has been delayed for a fourth

time due to wet weather.

City council neighbourhood and

sports parks operation manager Al

Hardy said the renovations will now

be completed by April 1 in time to

host matches in the Christchurch

Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration

2018.

“The grass is in its grow-in phase

and we anticipate that the grounds

could start to be utilised progressively

from early April.”

The work to install four cricket

blocks and three sand carpet playing

fields began in April last year.

Originally it was meant to be finished

by July. That was then delayed

until October due to bad weather.

The city council then pushed that

out until February. The city council

told Southern View it has now been

delayed again until April.

Mr Hardy said the delays had been

directly attributed to wet or extreme

weather conditions during winter.

“In August last year we did plan to

have the project completed in February,

however, the wet weather in

August and early September caused

further delays to the commencement

of the three month grow-in period

for the turf.” •Turn to page 7

SURFING IS a bit like tennis and golf.

There are thousands upon thousands of

people who take part in those activities but

only a tiny fraction of that number make it

to the top.

One of those who has that potential features in today’s paper.

Conor McLennan has a chance to live the surfing dream –

that is making a career out of it.

From Waimairi beach, but now based at an academy at Kiwi

surfing mecca, Raglan, he has just won the national under-18

title.

That will hopefully springboard him into the national team

where events further afield from our shores will beckon.

A bright future ahead I suspect.

Woolston Cut dredging starts

Local

News

Now

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Bridget Rutherford

A PROJECT to dredge the

Woolston Cut begins this week.

City Care will do the work,

which is taking place between

the flood control gates at Connal

St and Long St.

The project is expected to be

completed by June.

Several small dams would be

constructed in the waterway to

allow the silt to be removed by a

long reach excavator.

It would then be loaded on

trucks and taken away to be

disposed.

During the work, each section

will be fenced off and there will

be no access to the Heathcote

River and walkways in the work

area.

The cut was built in the 1980s

to prevent flooding in the lower

Heathcote River area, and for

other catchment-wide improvements,

such as the upper Heathcote

detention basins.

Water from the Heathcote

flows into the cut, which can

then be opened during floods

using the tidal barrage.

The city council decided to

dredge the cut so it continued to

provide effective flood remediation.

It is currently about 50 per

cent full of silt and liquefaction.

Originally the project was

PROGRESS: The removal of silt from the Woolston Cut will begin this week.

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

meant to start in October, but

asbestos was found in the silt,

which caused it to be delayed.

Because of the contamination,

it was expected to cost slightly

more than the original $2.3 million

budget.

Contamination mitigation

strategies have been developed to

ensure contaminated silt will be

removed and disposed of safely

and at the right facility.

However, the majority of the

silt is not contaminated.

The city council has also

installed rubbish booms in the

Heathcote and Avon rivers,

which gather floating debris.

It is then harvested by City

Care and sent to landfill.

Booms were previously

deployed in this way but were

removed following the earthquakes.

BOY RACER RULES

The hearing panel on proposed

boy racer vehicle restrictions

on Summit Rd is likely to be led

by city councillor David East.

The city council will meet on

Thursday to approve the makeup

of the panel. Deputy Mayor

Andrew Turner, city councillor

Tim Scandrett, and community

board members Melanie Coker,

Ross McFarlane, Darrell Latham

and Christine Wilson have been

put forward as panel members.

The proposal would prohibit

vehicles under 3500kg on Summit

Rd, between Rapaki and Gebbies

Pass Rds, and on Worsleys Rd

from 10pm-5am, Thursday to

Monday, and on public holidays.

DYERS PASS RD MEETING

A joint meeting between the

Spreydon-Cashmere and Banks

Peninsula community boards to

discuss the proposed Dyers Pass

Rd speed limit changes and no

passing lines has been tentatively

set for March 2. The city council

is looking at introducing a flat

speed limit of 60km/h from

the Sign of the Takahe to the

intersection of Governors Bay

and Dyers Pass Rds. During the

meeting, the boards will make

a recommendation to the city

council regarding the proposed

changes.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Dream job of keeping abreast of bugs

BRIAN PATRICK loves bugs.

The Woolston entomologist

and ecologist won’t leave home

without a jar in his pocket just in

case he spots a rare specimen.

Creepy crawlies aren’t

everyone’s favourite thing,

but Mr Patrick, who works for

Wildlands Consultants, is in

the middle of his dream job,

collecting insects at the Botanic

Gardens.

Mr Patrick has been tasked

by the city council’s parks conservation

team with a summer

survey of the small fauna living

in the central city park, including

butterflies, moths, cicadas,

grasshoppers, weta, crickets,

praying mantis, cockroaches,

stick insects, beetles, dragonflies,

bees and flies.

He believes the survey is a trailblazer

and shows that a botanic

gardens is full of exciting wildlife.

“This is a New Zealand first.

Nobody has ever been brave

enough to do this before. I’ve

already found plenty of unusual

species. The native brooms have

been yielding a lot of surprises,

especially interesting caterpillars.”

The work, which he is carrying

out during the day and at night,

is mainly funded by Friends

of the Christchurch Botanic

Gardens.

Visitors to the gardens have

been fascinated to see him bashing

bushes, walking around with

a net, and crawling on his hands

and knees on the ground.

At night, usually between

10pm and midnight, he uses a

160 watt UV light and a white

sheet to trap moths and butterflies

and other nocturnal insects.

After he finishes his survey

in late summer he will present

the gardens with a pinned and

named collection of dried insects

in entomological boxes.

He will explain the significance

of his findings including noting

which are new, threatened or

endangered species.

Botanic Gardens curator John

Clemens said the survey results

will provide valuable information

NATURE: If

you are in

the Botanic

Gardens keep

an eye out for

Woolston’s

Brian Patrick

who is

surveying

bugs.

on plants the insects are associating

with which will help guide

future decisions.

“By improving our plant collection

we can also look after the

insect life. We’re intrigued to see

what Brian will come up with

about the ecology of the gardens,”

he said.

Mr Patrick is an expert on the

order lepidoptera, a large group

of insects that includes moths

and butterflies.

He started collecting bugs as a

10-year-old living in Invercargill

and still has records of his first

trip on January 1, 1970, when he

began a database.

Since then he has carried out

about 3770 bug hunting trips.

Why does he love insects so

much?

“I think I’m driven by patterns.

I like the striking patterns on

their wings, the distribution

patterns, and patterns in the way

they interact with the plants they

feed on. I’m a mathematically

trained person so that makes it

really rewarding when you come

to predictions based on your

observations.”

of properties all over Christchurch.

Denton group thankful for support

• By Emily O’Connell

A COUNTRY rugby club is

getting behind its Hornby

‘friends’ in a bid to stop the city

council’s plan to build a $35.7

million mega centre in Denton

Park.

Darfield rugby club president

Scott McIlroy said it will do

whatever is needed to help the

Hornby Rugby Football Club.

“If they’re trying to close

Denton Park, we’ll definitely be

in behind them to try and keep

it going,” he said.

The proposed facility has been

highly controversial with sports

clubs fearful of losing their

home grounds.

Mr McIlroy said he’s not sure

what they can do to assist yet.

“No, I don’t know what options

are available but I’m sure

we’ll look at anything that helps

them tick along,” he said.

Hornby club chairwoman Lyn

Hucklebridge is grateful for the

support and she hopes more

clubs follow suit.

Mrs Hucklebridge said the

Save Denton Park group will

discuss what Darfield could do

and get back to them.

“What we need is for everyone

to be outspoken about the whole

process,” she said.

Taggers hit

Halswell

• By Emily O’Connell

HALSWELL residents are

concerned with the amount of

graffiti which has appeared in

their suburb.

City council graffiti clean-up

volunteer and Halswell Residents’

Association treasurer Matt

Shallcrass said State Highway 75

in Halswell is a popular spot for

vandalism.

“I think it’s just people passing

through the area,” he said.

Mr Shallcrass has reported

eight graffiti incidents in Halswell

already this month.

Which is a large increase compared

to his one report in December

and two in November.

He uses the city council’s Snap,

Send, Solve application to record

the vandalism.

The application works by identifying

the location the photo is

taken using the phone’s Global

Positioning System data.

It sends an email to the city

council from your email address,

including the incident type, notes,

address of incident, photo and

contact details.

The report is then allocated to

the city council.

Mr Shallcrass doesn’t believe

school holidays have anything to

do with the rise in graffiti.

April opening for park

•From page 1

Mr Hardy said after wet

weather the ground could

quickly become waterlogged,

even after two days of rain.

“This means the heavy machinery

required for trenching

drainage and levelling the fields

cannot be used until the ground

has dried out over a period of

time, sometimes weeks.”

Sydenham Park will be one

of many to host Christchurch

Casino Golden Oldies Sports

Celebration 2018 in early April.

Mr Hardy said three cricket

blocks will be available to host

matches.

He said there was a narrow

window between winter and

summer to do renovation

works.

“Christchurch turns its sports

fields around, making them

available for summer sport

quicker than any other major

metropolitan city. This year we

have had to increase the amount

of renovation activity as a result

of the very wet winter,” Mr

Hardy said.

“Sydenham Park, when completed,

will provide yearlong capacity

Private hair colouring services at

Elite Hair Cuts

Have you ever thought about

colouring your hair? No specific reason

needed, but many people have all kinds

of reason for colouring their hair.

Greying, change, experimentation,

fashion, illness, fun. No excuse is

actually needed to colour your hair in

the private colouring room at Elite Hair

Cuts located on Barrington Street.

Owner, Louise has been a stylist for

decades and is an expert at cutting

curly hair, short styles, youth cuts,

women’s styles and senior cuts.

“I love what I do. It is so

wonderful to have a person

walk into the salon and

walk out several minutes

later feeling great about

themselves.” Louise

adds.

“I have had repeat

customers for years

and I value their

loyalty. I enjoy people and

appreciate when a new

customer enters the salon. My goal is

to make my customers experience so

positive and rewarding that they want

to return time and time again. Even

recommending Elite Hair Cuts to their

family and friends.”

Over the past several months, a few

clients made a request which Louise

honoured when they wished for a

completely private hair colouring room.

“I wanted them to have a space where

they could relax. A place that felt

like home. A room they could

sit back and enjoy a cup of

tea or coffee. Put their feet

up and read a book or just

relax in, while they

waited on their hair

colour to complete.

In most salons, the

client is out in public

for an extensive

period of time. At

Elite Hair Cuts you

will enjoy a private

room so you will feel comfortable and

at ease. My clients have appreciated and

enjoyed their private colouring room

experience.”

Conor lives the surfing dream SPORTS

• By Sophie Cornish

CONOR MCLENNAN is living

every young surfers dream –

hitting the school books in the

morning and riding waves in the

afternoon.

The Raglan Surf Academy student

recently won the under-18

title at the national surfing championships

in Gisborne.

Originating from Waimairi

Beach, Conor, 17, represented his

home club, North Wai Boardriders,

in the competition.

He moved to Raglan in 2016

to start at the academy. The programme

is part of Raglan Area

School and was set up in 1998.

It allows students to complete

NCEA while learning about

surfing both in and out of the

classroom.

“We write reports about surfing,

the safety of surfing and trying

to get out to surf breaks, then

every lunchtime we will finish up

and go surfing. It’s a great life, I

love it,” said Conor. The national

final came down to a tight finish,

championships where he won the under-18 title. PHOTO: CORY/NZ SURFING MAGAZINE

which Conor said made time go

by “very, very slowly.”

“It was the best feeling ever, I

don’t think words can describe

how stoked I was to win that, I’ve

been working so hard for it for

the last year and it all paid off. It’s

a really good way for me to start

the year,” he said.

His parents watched on from

the beach. “It was a very cool feeling

to win in front of my mum

and dad . . . to win in front of

them was probably the greatest

feeling of it all,” he said.

The former Christchurch

Boys’ High School student won

another national title in 2014 at

the national scholastic secondary

schools championship.

He was also the under-17 Billabong

grom series champion last

year. Conor is already looking

ahead to the future, hoping to

secure himself a spot in the

New Zealand under-18 junior

worlds team, which he narrowing

missed out on last year, making a

reserve spot.

“This year I’m going all out for

it,” he said.

After finishing year 13,

Conor wants to work towards

gaining sponsorship and competing

in some qualifying series

events.

Wimbledon to the West Coast

• By Gordon Findlater

THREE YEARS ago Englishman

Harry Weeds was representing

his county on the lush grass

courts of Wimbledon. At the

weekend, he won the West Coast

Open while sleeping in his car at

a campground.

“I spent the first night in my

car but had to have the door

open all night because it was

stinking hot. I splashed out on

Saturday night and stayed in a

cabin,” said Weeds.

Now a Woolston resident and

Cashmere Tennis Club member,

he dominated the cultured astroturf

at the Grey United Tennis

Club going unbeaten over two

days of competition.

The 23-year-old decided to

enter the tournament due to the

holiday break in the Canterbury

premier inter-club competition

and to also explore the sights of

Greymouth.

Weeds went through the tournament

relatively untested until

his final match against Vaughan

Kingi. Weeds found himself

down a break in both sets of the

match but rallied to win 7-6, 6-4.

He also teamed up with Kingi

to win the doubles title. Weeds

was awarded $200 for winning

the singles title and $75 for the

doubles.

“It was a successful trip. That

covered all of my petrol, food

and accommodation,” said

Weeds. He celebrated his win by

visiting the Monteith’s Brewing

Co and spending some of his

prize money on beer tasting and

fries.

“The Golden Lager was my

favourite. It was a very refreshing

drop after a gruelling two days

seven with friend Charlie

Horn in 2015. On Sunday,

Weeds won the West Coast

Open in Greymouth.

of battle on the West Coast,” said

Weeds.

In June, he moved to Christchurch

from Norwich, England, for

what he describes as a working

adventure.

Weeds has played on a number

of courts at Wimbledon during

his time in England. In 2014, he

represented his county, Norfolk,

in a match against the All England

Lawn Tennis and Croquet

Club.

Retaining his West Coast titles

in 2019 has already been added

to his to-do list while in New

Zealand. “I’ll definitely be back.

Greymouth has given itself a special

place in my heart.”

SPORTS

Young golfer to learn from Ko

Shoot-off goes

to Brettkelly

FORMER Christchurch Boys’ High

golfer Dominic Brettkelly won the

Canterbury stroke play in a sudden

death shoot-off.

He, along with Rangiora’s Kazuma

Kobori, were tied on 212 after

three rounds forcing a shoot-off

which Brettkelly won on the second

hole at the Waitikiri Golf Club on

Sunday​. He also won the best under-19

score title.

Burnside High’s Juliana Hung

won the senior women’s title shooting

75, 69 and 68 for a combined 212

six shots ahead of Jeonghyun Lee.

A Canterbury Golf spokeswoman

said the full field of 96 players had

great conditions over the weekend

but also playing a course which was

in excellent condition.

“The field was strengthened with

over 30 entries from outside the

region, predominately due to the enhanced

initiative formed with Otago

and Southland Golf this year,” she

said.

Brettkelly was also the winner of

the inaugural Ron Clement Memorial

Trophy which was presented by

Ron’s wife Rae and daughter Tracy.

“Clements was heavily involved in

the development of junior golf and

so it is fitting that this year we now

have the Ron Clements Memorial

Trophy which is awarded for the

best under-19 boys score,” she said.

OPPORTUNITY: Amelia Garvey will learn from former

world No 1 Lydia Ko in the United States.

IT IS the dream start to the year for

Christchurch golfer Amelia Garvey

with an opportunity to learn from

former world No 1 Lydia Ko in the

United States.

Garvey will travel with Auckland’s

Rose Zheng to Scottsdale in

Phoenix, Arizona and spend time

with Ko, training and playing ​at

one of the most exclusive golfing

establishments in the world after

being offered the scholarship by

New Zealand Golf and Ko.

The former Burnside High student

is ranked No 1 in Canterbury

and ninth in the New Zealand

amateur rankings.

The pair will be with Ko from

Thursday to Saturday learning

about the game they both want to

pursue as a career.

For Garvey, last year was a

success. Her highlights included

winning the New Zealand amateur

stroke play championship and being

the only New Zealand amateur

to make the half-way cut in the

LPGA Tour New Zealand Women’s

Open.

Those performances helped her

secure a golf scholarship to the

University of Southern California

which she will start after her time

with Ko.

Ko, who signed to play with PXG

clubs last year, said the motivation

behind the scholarship is so she can

give back to the game by inspiring

the next generation of females to

strive for the top to see what it

takes to get there and help grow the

Lydia Ko Rose Zheng

number of New Zealanders competing

with her on the LPGA Tour.

Ko is excited at the opportunity

to host Garvey and Zheng and

proud to be able to provide support

back to females in golf to show

recognition of the support she

received along her journey.

“I received support from so many

people as I grew up and I’m proud

to be able to give something back,”

Ko said.

“I am really pleased to be able to

work with New Zealand Golf and

use the scholarship with the intention

to help the next wave of young

golfers rise and compete on the

LPGA Tour.”

Through the Lydia Ko Scholarship,

both New Zealand Golf and

Ko hope to attract more interest

from the emerging talent within

the women’s game.

Last year the recipients of the

scholarship were Alanna Campbell

and Momoka Kobori, of Rangiora,

who have both taken up scholarships

to Iowa State University and

Pepperdine University respectively.

continuing education

Lincoln Decision Day helps

students choose future

2018 has come around quickly. Maybe

school is fast becoming a memory, or perhaps

you are looking for a new direction. If you

are new to tertiary study, 2018 might even be

fees free, giving you the perfect start to your

academic study.

On 25 January Lincoln University is holding

its Decision Day event on campus, from 9am

to 4pm. Experts will be available to answer

your questions about what to study, help you

enrol and discuss your options so that the

decision about where to study becomes easier.

Lincoln is gearing up for a big year, adding

new majors to its popular Commerce degrees

as well as new programmes, to make sure it is

offering choice to students.

Students are now able to include a

transferable environmental management

major into a commerce degree, ensuring

REAL ESTATE

Contemporary living with an Art Deco twist

38 Bryndwr Road, Fendalton

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | Listing Number: PI49743

Combining the undeniable style of the

Art Deco era with contemporary luxuries,

this substantial property has undergone an

extensive renovation to create an unforgettable

- yet very practical - family home. Enjoying

a north-facing aspect in a highly desirable

location amongst other high-calibre properties,

it is zoned for Fendalton School, Cobham

Intermediate, Boys’ High and Girls’ High. A

choice of supermarkets and cafés within two

minutes’ drive and easy access to both CBD

and airport also ensure incredible convenience.

Inside, a chic new kitchen flows to two

adjoining living spaces, both beautifully sunny

and opening to the landscaped (and very

private) garden for effortless entertaining. A

spacious terrace upstairs further extends the

options for outdoor living. Four bedrooms plus

office share two contemporary bathrooms,

while a separate garden studio would be ideal

for working from home. The separate double

garage boasts the practicality of a high stud.

The owners have lavished their attention

on transforming this remarkable home,

including aluminium double-glazing to ensure

year-round comfort, but a new project now

beckons. This is your opportunity to secure

an architecturally exciting home without

sacrificing contemporary comfort. Contact us

today to view this stunning property.

MICHAEL Jackson fans will be moonwalking their way to

theatres next month as the Michael Jackson HIStory Show

makes it's return to New Zealand.

Aer an approximate 5000+ performances in the past nine

years across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong,

Dubai, Indonesia, South Africa, Canada and the US, word of

this show has spread amongst the MJ community, with the

show being inundated with pleas to come back to the NZ

stage. It was this persistent devotion of admirers that allowed

producer John Van Grinsven to hear the requests loud and

clear, ultimately leading to the Michael Jackson HIStory

Show's return.

e world-class production showcases all of Michael

Jackson's greatest hits live on stage, complemented by the

famous dance moves that fans all know, love and aspire to do.

Star of the show, Dantanio, will be accompanied by a lively

six-piece band, four groovy backup dancers and a

phenomenal lighting team.

e show features 40 different customised costumes,

twenty of which are for the MJ character alone. Over 100

hours have been dedicated to the lighting design, which

makes use of 160+ moving lights and over 2000 lighting cues

arranged to punctuate and enhance the musical elements of

the show.

Playing the role of Michael is Dantanio, a South African

theatre performer and solo recording artist who has been

studying and impersonating Jackson since the age of nine!

e Michael Jackson HIStory Show takes place at the Isaac

eatre Royal on Monday 19th February 2018.

Tickets are on sale now at Ticketek or visit

www.mjhistoryshow.com for ticketing and further

information.
