Sumner clean-up not

happening in Bishopdale

• By Julia Evans

OVERFLOWING Bishopdale

rubbish bins won’t be collected

more frequently, nor will they

have their size increased.

An outcry from Sumner

residents saw the bins along The

Esplanade being cleared twice as

often.

But Leacroft St resident

Graham Adams said he is “frustrated”

the same isn’t happening

in Bishopdale Park.

Mr Adams has been calling for

the city council to install larger

bins or collect the bins more

frequently at the park across from

his house with no success.

“We all pay rates. It’s part of

that.”

from the reporter’s desk

WE HEAR a lot about rubbish problems along popular beach

spots.

But on today’s front page we see it’s not only Sumner and

New Brighton that are dealing with overflowing bins.

Residents using a local suburban park in Bishopdale are

fighting their own battle trying to get bins cleared so rubbish

isn’t left to fly around in the strong nor-westerly wind.

It’s been a hot summer so it is no wonder the parks are busy

with families and, as a result, the bins are full.

The city council does increase the amount of times bins are

cleared at this time of year, but clearly it’s not quite doing the

trick.

Maybe it’s time for people to start taking their rubbish home

with them?

Potholes reason for ‘poor’ roads

• By Julia Evans

“THIS IS just totally

Those are the words of Papanui-Innes

the amount of potholes across

the two wards is too high.

the idea.

Ms Jones said the roads went

hand-in-hand with the abandoned

“We just want some emphasis

particularly poor and were not

Veterinary practice

Charity work

For a while now, Steve and I have helped

out charity organizations in Christchurch.

We are involved with CPL, redzonecats and

more recently the SPCA. We all really enjoy

the involvement and working relationship

we have with these organizations, ensuring

that these animals get “Gold” Standard

treatment and care in our hospital, just like

any of our pets would receive.

Megan and a tabby kitten in for desexing.

What has amazed me is the total

commitment , kindness and compassion

the inspectors, fosterers, vets and carers we

have dealt with have for these homeless,

sick and often abused animals. Many of

these people work voluntarily. It is not an

easy job, physically or emotionally. They

see a lot of things we shouldn’t have to

be exposed to. They often transform

their homes to cater for the fast growing

number of cats to care for. They do the

very best in terms of nutrition and pet care.

They genuinely care and want to improve

the life and health for this animal.

Working with the CPL means we mainly

desex, microchip and vaccinate kittens who

are living with fosterers until they are ready

to be put up for adoption. One of the best

parts of our day is cuddling these kittens

– all are so cute and huggable. Robyn

who we liase with, has worked tirelessly

and voluntarily for over 25 years for the

CPL and is just one of the kindest most

generous people I know. She makes a huge

difference in the lives of those kittens and

has a dedicated team of fosterers to help.

CPL kittens awaiting their surgery.

Redzonecats also do a remarkable job,

a job no one else was prepared to do, in

that they carefully monitor and trap stray

cats in earthquake redzoned areas and

endeavor to find their previous owners or

socialize and rehome these cats to loving

families. Many of these cats have been

alone and “just surviving” since 2011 and

so are difficult for us to handle without

sedation. Initially we check these cats for

FIV and FeLV ( Feline Aids or Feline leukemia

Virus) and if they test negative we will often

desex and vaccinate these cats, perform

dentistry on mouths that require it, and

groom or xray where appropriate. These

cats are given a fantastic chance and we

all treat them with respect, kindness and

humility. We love helping out Jane and her

cats. Another outstanding woman who

genuinely cares about animals.

Recently we have started working

alongside the SPCA. This has been

particularly rewarding diagnosing and

treating these animals to the best of

our ability and providing them with a

level of kindness and care they often

haven’t experienced before. The SPCA

inspectors we deal with are a wonderful

bunch of passionate, gentle people who

are solely dedicated to helping improve

the lives of the animals in their care. We

examine sick and uplifted animals, provide

diagnostics such as xrays, blood testing

and ultrasounds where necessary and

we provide intensive care monitoring if

needed. Due to being open 7 days, the

weekends can often be busy checking out

SPCA patients and providing a treatment

plan.

We even see tortoises - here Kirsty is

performing a hind leg amputation

to save its life.

Steve and I are very proud to be

associated with the above organizations

and we have met some fabulous people

along the way, who all share our views

that a pets’ life is just as important as our

own, and these special furry friends of ours

should be treated and cared for exactly

the same. We are all headed in the same

direction whereby we want to decrease

animal abuse and abandonment by way of

providing the correct education to people,

care that is affordable and showing respect

and kindness to everyone, regardless of

where they come from. Everyone does

deserve the love and companionship of

owning a pet but it’s not a decision to be

taken lightly and the correct advice and

education from us as health professionals is

vitally important for a successful outcome.

Overflowing bins ‘frustrate’

•From page 1

Mr Adams said just

like the Sumner beaches,

the “elephant” park is

used more frequently in

summer and the bins are

overflowing every week.

Saturday and Sundays

nights are the worst before

the bin is cleared on Monday

morning, Mr Adams

said. He said the windy

summer has meant litter

has blown around the park.

“When they clear it,

they only pick up rubbish

around the bin. It can go for

miles if it’s really blowing.”

said the number of times

the three bins at the park

are cleared was increased

to four times a week over

“A programme for regular

visits is put in place. Where

a call is received outside

what is planned, contractors

will then organise to

empty the bins concerned.”

is not enough.

Mr Hardy said the city

council had received five

complaints about overflowing

bins in the last year.

Mr Adams said it was

not “rocket science” to see

that the bins needed to be

bigger. He said he spoke

to someone from the city

council parks team about

the idea. “They assured

me it would be done.” But

Mr Hardy said there was

no report of a request for

larger bins. “Just reports of

The city council will also

Trust building

relocated

• By Sophie Cornish

A NEW building for the Shirley

Community Trust was relocated

from St Albans to MacFarlane

Park yesterday.

The building, which has a large

meeting room, two offices, a

kitchen and toilets, was donated

to the city by the Lions Clubs

International Foundation following

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

It was previously used as

the St Albans Community Centre

on Colombo St.

There were some delays to the

process as the city council initially

estimated the cost to relocate

the building would be $100,000.

However, more detailed planning

revealed it would cost $225,000.

The initial $100,000 was approved

through the city council’s

Annual Plan. An additional

$125,000 was fast tracked for the

move.

The trust has been mainly operating

out of a small building at

MacFarlane Park for 16 years.

Trust manager Jane Mitchell

said the new building is a “very

exciting” prospect.

“We will still be operating

out of the smaller building, but

now there will be room for other

things to happen,” Mrs Mitchell

said.

SALLY MCPHERSON loves all

things equine.

Now the 17-year-old Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School student has

been named in the New Zealand

Team for the American Quarter

Horse Youth World Cup in

Bryan, Texas.

But don’t get it confused with

rodeo.

Think dressage with a western

twist, that’s american quarter

horse, Sally said.

“It’s not rodeo. “It’s very precise

and technical. But it’s also

very colourful and sparkly unlike

the more demure dressage,”

she said.

Sally said there’s a fair bit of

bling involved in the outfits

which are quite heavy from all

the rhinestones.

“Some jackets and tops can

cost tens of thousands of dollars.

Many are specially made for the

competitor and the horses are

also bedazzled,” she said.

Sally and her team will head to

the United States in June to compete

for medals in cutting, reining,

horsemanship, ranch riding,

trail, western riding, hunt seat

equitation, hunter under saddle

and showmanship.

She will have a horse provided

by the organisers.

She’s the only Christchurch

member of the youth team and

Sally said it’s the realisation of a

goal she set herself many years

ago.

“I have been working towards

this for a long time,” she said.

“My aim is to learn as much

as I can and be proud of my

achievements. It’ll be the best experience

and biggest opportunity

yet, to meet others and compete

on the international stage.”

Fraser St onto Cranford St.

The New Zealand

Transport

Agency was lobbied

by the city

council to install

the new traffic

islands, with

work finishing

Emma Norish

on Friday.

“The new traffic

islands will

make turning right out of Fraser

St easier and safer by ensuring

Cranford St Drivers don’t enter

the right hand lane too soon or

use the right turn lane as a short

cut to Main North Rd,” a letter to

residents from NZTA said.

The islands will guide vehicles

from Fraser St into the correct

lane and ensure drivers on Cranford

St don’t stray into the right

lane.

“This new layout should make

this intersection easier and safer

to use,” the letter said.

SAFE: Two new traffic islands have been

installed on Cranford St.

Ms Norrish said traffic flow

onto Fraser St had increased since

work began on the Northern Corridor.

“So I’m glad these concerns

are being addressed,” she said.

TARGET: 21 Francis Ave is abandoned and overgrown with

vegetation.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

A week after Nor’West

News reported the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board is targeting

abandoned and vacant

properties in the area

that could be targeted

by vandals, a reader

responded reporting

another property at 21

Francis Ave in St Albans

Christine Abbasi –There is

a property in Francis Ave, the

house numbers on either side of

it are 19 and 25 so am unsure of

its correct number. It appears

to be on a single section. It

is single-storey with garden

vegetation now all over it. Last

winter there was a derelict car

parked beside it but that is now

totally covered in vegetation

too. It is sad as the rest of the

houses in the street are well

cared for. I look forward to

hearing of the progress. Do

these owners pay rates? If not

the city council should be able

to move them on.

Other readers respond to

the article

Deborah Jackson – I walk

past this [258 Papanui Rd] every

day. It’s disgusting and probably

full of breeding rodents – a poor

look for our city indeed.

Chrissi Tukaki – Simple

answer is land-banking

landlords.

History group revived

St Albans

History Group

chairman

David Spear

writes

about the

regeneration

of the group

following the earthquakes

The St Albans History Group

grew out of a bus trip around the

suburb in 1998 organised by the

late Muriel Soanes.

She had been a leader in the

movement to oppose the planned

motorway through the area and

had an extensive knowledge of

the history of the suburb.

Mrs Soanes lived in St Albans

all her life and, in fact, at that

time was living in the house in

which she was born some 100

years earlier.

A number of those who enjoyed

the bus trip and were interested

in the history experience felt that

there was a need to establish a

history group in the area.

A public meeting was called

and from a considerable attendance,

a small committee was

formed and a group of interested

members began meeting on a

monthly basis.

Initially these meetings were

held in private homes, but once

the St Albans Resource Centre

at the former St Albans library

came into being, we used this as

a base.

Of course members aged, they

moved from the district and

numbers declined.

The earthquakes shook the

life out of much of our work and

regular meetings ceased.

The remaining members kept

in touch and did their best to not

only record the history of the

area, publish articles of general

interest in the community news,

and act as a point of reference for

those wishing to preserve the history

of the suburb.

More recently, meetings have

been revived and the group again

meets monthly to discuss recent

discoveries and share knowledge

of the area.

The book Swamp to Suburb

TIME: The St Albans History Group meets monthly to share

stories about the area.

published in 1989 by the Federation

of University Women

provides a wealth of information

and it has always been our aim

to extend this information and

record further topics not fully

covered.

Over the years topics researched

have included notable

identities, local natural features,

prominent buildings and local

industries.News sheets have been

produced recording the information

and they have provided the

basis for articles in the community

news.

The group had hoped to

obtain copies of photos of early

St Albans but these have proved

elusive. A collection of portraits

of the mayors of the borough

remains incomplete with two also

eluding us.

Archaeology is rather thin on,

or rather under the ground, in St

Albans. In general terms the area

has been subjected to not much

over 160 years of human activity.

Unlike the United Kingdom,

NOSTALGIA: Papanui Rd at

St Albans in 1906. PHOTO:

CHRISTCHURCH CITY

LIBRARIES

we don’t have layers of Stone

Age, Iron Age, Roman, Medieval

and Tudor occupation evident in

excavations.

However, the history of St Albans

is rich in human affairs.

The people who lived there and

the many who still do, provide an

insight into what was going on in

our city.

Recent natural disasters may

have damaged and destroyed

buildings and we may have lost

forever the bricks and mortar but

the history of St Albans remains

intact. The history of the area is

the story of the residents.

•The history group can be

reached through Sandra

Wilson at the temporary

Community Centre at the

St Albans Tennis Club in

Dover St or by email to

Chairman of the Papanui

Heritage Group Murray

Williams writes about

the establishment of the

Papanui Primary School

dental clinic

The first official indicator of

the sorry state of New Zealanders’

dental health was revealed

when a significant number of

men were turned down for

military service in World War 1

because of the poor condition of

their teeth.

Eventually the Government

realised that any improvement

would have to start with better

care of children’s teeth and in

1921 a commitment was made to

provide for Government funding

of the training of young women

as dental nurses who then were

deemed competent to care for

primary school children’s teeth

The Papanui School clinic was

opened in May 1930 and the services

of the dental nurse were to

be shared with Waimairi School.

Parents were obviously keen

to have their children’s dental

needs attended to but were not

impressed when it was revealed

that they were expected to pay

some of the expenses.

In October 1933, the Papanui

School committee determined

that parents would be charged

2/6 (25 cents) per child or five

shillings (50 cents) per family as

an annual levy.

It was pointed out that this was

still much cheaper that the cost

of private dental care.

Parents who could not afford

Primary

School

dental

clinic

would

have

looked

like.

Murder house memories

the school charge could apply

to the school committee to have

the fees waived but by 1935 even

better-off parents were refusing

to pay the charge.

In 1934, the Waimairi County

Council had offered to supply

electric power to the clinic at no

cost to the school, thus reducing

running expenses.

In August 1934, the Papanui

school dental nurse offered an

annual prize to the child with

the cleanest teeth but even this

inducement probably did little

to change juvenile attitudes to

attending the ‘murder house.’

It was not unknown for pupils

summoned for their turn in the

chair to take an unscheduled but

speedy trip home.

Instruments were sterilised

with boiling water. Wall posters

exhorted children to clean their

teeth regularly. The chair was

wooden with little scope for adjustment

for patient comfort.

However, the most feared feature

was the drill operated by the

nurse via a foot-operated treadle,

thus the speed of the procedure

was a direct function of the

energy applied.

By the end of the day a weary

nurse could have inadvertently

slowed the drill to create an even

more painful experience for the

young patient undergoing preparation

for a filling.

Dance sport medals for teacher

• By Andrew King

ST MARGARET’S College

dance teacher Stacy Goldsworthy

helped a number of teams win

medals at the New Zealand

Masters Games in dance sport.

The 36-year-old was involved

with three teams that one gold,

silver and bronze during the

competition held on Waitangi

weekend in Dunedin.

She was one of 10 in a formation

team who won gold, which

requires the dancers to make as

many different formations as they

can in three-and-a-half minutes

while facing the four sets of

judges at all times.

The team was made up of Molly

Chapman, Rebecca Abrahams,

Sarah-Jane Haywood, Kate Podmore,

Sarah Van Hoof, Hayley

Toso, Caroline Stevenson, Kay

McDonald and Sue Gledhill.

Goldsworthy then took part

in a quartet, which also featured

Rebecca Abraham, Sarah-Jane

Haywood and Kate Podmore

tap dancing, and was awarded a

silver medal.

“In my whole dancing career

of about 33 years it was the most

fun I have had on stage. For some

reason, it was such a highlight to

dance with them,” she said.

She also received a bronze

medal for another formation routine

with a separate team made

up of Toso, Van Hoof, Chapman,

McDonald and Stevenson.

Goldsworthy got into dance

when she was three-years-old,

following in her mother tap

dancing footsteps.

Now she teaches dance at St

Margaret’s but said her passion is

about winning medals.

“I just love it, I love performing

and being on stage in a costume,

and winning medals,” she said.

ST ANDREW’S has the third

best beach volleyball junior girls

pair in the country.

Marijke Hinton and Kate Allen

took bronze in the division

one competition of the New

Zealand secondary school beach

championships at Mt Maunganui.

It was a tough competition for

the year 11 students, who had to

battle strong North Island teams

and a king tide which washed the

court away preventing play for

about an hour on day one.

THe pair made the quarterfinals

and beat Bethlehem 2-1

before losing in the semi-final to

Auckland’s Long Bay College 1-2.

They bounced back to take

bronze with a win over Marlborough

Mikaele Tuu’u said it was a fantastic

“I think it will be one of the

I have seen in a while,” he said.

Burnside High’s Libby Collett

and Talitha Bootsma placed

second in the division two girls

section with coach Sam Ryburn,

known as ‘Mr Volleyball’ saying

he believes there is some really

good competition between the

Christchurch schools now.

“Looking ahead to the indoor

season I think our [Burnside’s]

time may have come. We have

had good success in the past but

the competition is looking very

strong this year,” he said.

trained in England, New Zealand and at the University of Fine

Arts in Hanoi, Vietnam.

She is known for her work in portraiture, landscape and birds.

Working in a variety of different mediums, mostly with a palette

“Headland is about the Port Hills and Banks Peninsula,

Horomaka. Walks and wanderings. Thinking about conservation

and the sheer love and hard work of the locals who protect

and manage the land and its beautiful birds.

Our taonga. This exhibition feels like just the

beginning, there is so much left to say.”

Wildside Project

The Wildside Project is a large scale collaboration

of landowners, Christchurch City Council,

Department of Conservation, Environment

Canterbury, and BPCT for the protection of a

variety of endemic, threatened, and iconic species

such as the endemic white-flippered little blue

penguin, the only titi (sooty shearwater) colony

in Canterbury, and yellow-eyed penguin at their

northern breeding range. jewelled gecko, spotted

skink, the Banks Peninsula tree weta and Akaroa daisy (both

found only on the Wildside). The Wildside covers 13,500ha and

focuses on habitat protection, with 25% of the Wildside held in

private or public reserve, and predator control, with over 700

predator traps controlling feral cats, ferrets, stoats, weasels,

and possums used in this extensive trapping programme.

The Tui Project

The Banks Peninsula Tui Restoration group translocated a

total of 72 tui from Maud Island, Marlborough Sounds to

Hinewai Reserve, Banks Peninsula in 2009 and 2010. This

NatureWatchNZ project has been set up to capture the many

observations of tui contributed by people all over Banks

Peninsula and Christchurch since the first release. The vast

majority of observations in the project are made by a small

team of volunteers, who have spent thousands of hours

observing, recording and managing this information over the

last nine years.

Reverse the signs of aging naturally with the

newest LED Facial Device to New Zealand!

As summer comes to a close, your skin,

especially your face needs hydration and

rejuvenation. Coming off the heat wave

Christchurch has been experiencing, the

elasticity in your skin will have shrivelled

after being exposed to the drying, aging

outdoor elements.

Now there is a machine that is sweeping

the globe and has landed in Christchurch.

Experience the eleven beauty treatments

accomplished within one facial mask. LED

was invented by NASA as they were looking

for a light source to be able to grow plants

in space, from this they found that it had

amazing skin cell rejuvenation & it wasn’t

long before LED was used in hospitals

around the world.

People are experiencing the full facial

rejuvenating experience with the LED light

therapy with documented results in:

Anti-Ageing – Wrinkles, Age spots,

Scaring

Anti-Acne – Antibacterial, Reduces

inflammation

Cell Rejuvenation - Eczema

Reduce Redness – Rosacea, Sunburn

Even Skin Tones – Hyper-Pigmentation

Skin Booster – Collagen Rejuvenation

Skin Soothing – Psoriasis

Pain Blocker – Reduce swollen capillaries

Charmaine McFarlane has established a

new salon to accommodate her Aduro LED

light therapy equipment for a business that

runs parallel to her popular Sparklewhite

teeth-whitening programme.

Charmaine says the light therapy

encourages new cells to regenerate.

Depending on the particular skin condition

the client wants to treat, he or she will don

an Aduro LED face mask that emits light of

a particular colour.

“We cleanse, exfoliate, tone and apply a

serum to the skin before putting the client

under LED light,” Charmaine says.

“The bonus is with this salon LED light

therapy we can whiten your teeth at the

same time as you are having your facial”,

there is no other machine in the world that

can do this!”
