raises

$15,000

for family

of sick child

• By Sophie Cornish

A SOUTH New Brighton boy who

was left unable to blink, swallow,

move or talk as a result of a brain

tumour has had around $15,000

fundraised for him in an art auction

on Friday night.

Connor Duncan-Caley, 8, was

diagnosed with the tumour last

June and the ‘Jedi’s New Hope’ art

auction was organised by the community

to fundraise for him and his

family.

His father, Mark, recently lost his

job when the company went into

liquidation, and the earthquakedamaged

house they brought ‘as is,

where is’ is now subject to insurance

issues.

More than 160 guests attended

the event where 78 donated pieces

of artwork were auctioned off on

Friday at Fiksate Gallery in New

Brighton Mall.

Ten pieces went to live auction

and the rest were sold through silent

auction.

Auction organiser Maureen Taane

said they are “super stoked” and

“delighted” with how the event

went.

“We couldn’t have wish for a

better night, it was a wonderful,

love-filled beautiful community

event,” she said. Mr Duncan-Caley

said his family were blown away by

the auction.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

from the editor’s desk

THERE’S BEEN a huge amount of interest

over the plight of the Duncan-Caley

family from South Brighton since we ran

our article earlier this month.

They’ve been dealt a number of very

poor hands – an ill child, dad made redundant

and ongoing earthquake repair issues on their house.

But the community has rallied as all good communities do

and an art auction on Friday night raised $15,000 for them (see

page 1).

By all accounts it was a great night, and the organisers and

those who donated art should be feeling pretty good about

themselves.

Top marks too to Shirley Boys’ High School rowing crews

(page 1 and 12) at the Maadi Cup. A triumph over adversity.

Old Skellerup site now metal graveyard

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE WOOLSTON site where the

Skellerup factory operated for a

century is being used by a scrap

metal company.

National Steel is operating

out of the Garlands Rd site with

crushed cars piled up on the site.

Rubber goods maker Skellerup

moved out in 2016 to a new $60

million premises in Wigram.

It had operated at the Woolston

site for a century. But its buildings

were damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake, and the decision

was made to move to a new

factory in Wigram.

The Woolston site was sold

‘as is where is’. Auckland-based

National Steel buys scrap metal,

processes and sorts it, before

selling it on.

Linwood Ward city councillor

Yani Johanson said it stared

operating a couple of weeks

ago.

He said there had been some

concern within the community

about the potential noise the site

would generate.

But he said it was an industrial

area, so there would likely be few

restrictions.

NEW USE: Crushed cars have been stacked up on the former Skellerup factory site (left) in Woolston, which is now being used

Graham Pownceby – I

spent on a 50m pool?

Dan Vann – Pretty sure the

Travis Rd work to prepare for QE II facilities

• By Sophie Cornish

TRANSPORT upgrades,

including a cycle lane, on Travis

Rd are being undertaken to

accommodate the new QE II

Sport and Recreation Centre and

the Shirley Boys and Avonside

Girls’ High School campus.

The Coastal-Burwood Community

Board approved plans

last week, which aim to support

the new developments, while

attempting to minimise road

congestion.

An off-road shared path and

cycle lane will be installed on

Travis Rd as well as two pedestrian

islands. Another pedestrian

island will be put in on Bower

Ave.

As a result, 26 parking spaces

will be lost on the north side of

Travis Rd and 10 spaces on Bower

Ave at the entrance to Dick Tayler

Drive.

Consultation letters were sent

to residents who may be affected

by the changes and others were

informed by a leaflet drop.

The design has been devised

to maximise access to modes of

transport such as walking and

cycling.

The city council’s transport

education team is planning to

work with the schools to encourage

‘sustainable transport habits’

which it hopes will minimise the

effects of overspill parking in the

surrounding area near the new

school campus.

The city council will contribute

$240,000 to the project for the

shared path and work on the

Travis Rd section in front of QE

II Park.

The Ministry of Education will

fund the section along Travis

Rd in front of the new school

campus.

Work is due to start next

month.

“A lot of those people don’t

Mr Duncan-Caley said Connor

was also in shock about the

auction.

“He’s completely lit up with all

SMILE: Connor could not attend the auction but created a video to thank his supporters which was shown at

the event on Friday night in which 78 pieces of art were sold off.

The money raised from the

sisters Murphy and Madden.

Both sets of grandparents,

uncles, aunties and cousins also

attended the auction.

Connor was able to send a

message through video, which

Casino team takes out

rescue chopper challenge

TEAMS FROM businesses

across the city assembled with

one mission – to raise money for

the Westpac rescue helicopters.

They were challenged to a

gruelling day of push-ups, an

obstacle course and a first aid test

during the Air Rescue Summer

Crew Challenge.

The Christchurch Casino team

took out the title for the second

year in a row – raising more than

$12,000 for the charity.

“The teams left nothing on the

field this year, it was extremely

competitive,” Rick Knight, crew

chief said.

“It was amazing to see the

Casino take the cup for the second

year running; they worked

together as a team and fought to

the end.”

The day started with a goal

of raising $70,000, which was

cracked with $70,721.91 raised

by the 22 competing teams. That

will fund 14 lifesaving air rescue

trips.

WINNER: The

Christchurch

Casino team

raised more

than $12,000

for Westpac Air

“It really does make a

difference. It has been a very

missions,” Air Rescue chief

Waitakiri, Linwood Ave pupils

show the future of gardening

• By Sophie Cornish

PUPILS FROM Waitakiri

Primary and Linwood Ave

School both gained silver awards

in the fourth annual Oderings

School Gardens Show.

The show took place at

the Woolston Club and was

organised by the Canterbury

Horticultural Society.

Pupils were required to design

a garden that adhered to the

theme ‘into the future’.

“The standard of the 11

garden exhibits from the

participating schools was

extremely high and the judges

were amazed at their quality,”

said Canterbury Horticultural

Society communications officer

Emma Velde.

The team from Waitakiri

created a Futuristic Garden,

inspired by the school’s

involvement with the Travis

Wetland and cleaning up of the

area.

Pupils from Linwood Ave

created an Alienopoly garden,

which considered a future in

which aliens take over the earth.

Waitakiri caretaker and

project helper Ian Woodward

said about 30 pupils and four

teachers were involved in

the garden, which took three

months to put together.

Drag racer following in family’s footsteps

• By Andrew King

WINNING national

championships at more than

250km/h is in the Henley-

Minchington blood.

At Auckland’s Meremere

Dragway, another trophy was

added to the family mantelpiece

when Stuart Henley-Minchington,

28, won the New Zealand

nationals modified drag racing

title with a blistering time of

8.25sec at 259km/h.

It also meant he was crowned

national series champion in the

modified section for the third

consecutive year.

Stuart is following in the

footsteps of his uncles, Bill and

Clinton, who together won

four consecutive national titles

between 2013-2017 in the funny

car category. They finished the

season this year in third.

His father Owen still races,

and his sister Hayley, and the rest

of his family, pitches in to keep

the team going.

“It is a little bit surreal,” Stuart

said about winning the national

crown.

“It is been my lifelong dream to

drive these cars. Now I’m doing

it and being successful, it is a

dream come true.”

Stuart said his love for the

sport started early, but really

accelerated when he got in a

scaled-down dragster when he

was nine-years-old.

SMOKING: Stuart Henley-Minchington lights up the wheels at

Meremere Dragway on his way to a national title.

“Then we built one in 1998 and

away I went,” he said.

“From there I have just been

moving up classes. Once you figure

one out, then it is time move

on to something faster.”

Waiting for the lights to flash

green takes all the concentration

he can muster and he looks to set

SPORTS

the best time possible with every

pass.

“It is the most insane

adrenalin rush you possibly

could have. It becomes an addiction,”

he said.

Motorsport is hard on the

pocket and he said without the

constant support from his entire

family and some sponsors, the

dream would not be possible.

“We definitely couldn’t do it

without our sponsors, Trident

Homes and AutoTrans, and Car

Aid, who have been helping out

with the engine, they are awesome,”

he said.

Stuart has one race left in the

local series at Mike Pero Motorsport

Park on April 8 and he

said he would like to break the

record in the A-modified altered

category which currently stands

at 8.35sec.

Local plumbers offering

free checks on clay pipes

While it is now almost eight years since the

Christchurch earthquakes, damage to underground

pipes is still becoming apparent, says

the team at Laser Plumbing Christchurch

East, who are based in Ferrymead.

As they point out, homeowners can

be completely unaware that they have

earthquake damage to their clay pipes.

Properties built before the 1970s are

most likely to have clay pipes, and

cracks in the pipes allow tree roots to

enter and block drains. The damage can

take some time to become apparent

but when it does, it is usually fairly

major, and costly to repair.

Specialists in drain-laying and plumbing,

Laser Plumbing are currently offering a

free check on pipes. This involves a quick look with a

camera, and if any damage is found they will discuss

this with the owner. Laser Plumbing are experts in

dealing with EQC and know how

to make the process easy. The next

step is to provide

a drainage survey

report to EQC, who

in most cases, will

cover the cost of this

as well as replacing

the damaged pipes.

There are some

conditions, which

Laser Plumbing will

discuss with the

homeowner.

“We have done hundreds of surveys

and have been installing a lot of

replacement PVC pipes over recent

years,” says Carol McCann, who owns the

company with her husband Chris Dick.

“We want to make it easy for people by

offering the check at no cost, and we

urge people to get their pipes checked

sooner rather than later as we do not

know how long EQC will cover repairs for

home-owners. Having them replaced will

avoid serious problems in the future. It’s

all done with minimum fuss.”

Located in Tussock Lane, Ferrymead,

Laser Plumbing services customers right

across the city. They are very proud of

their team of qualified tradesmen, who

carry out plumbing and drainage work

with care and efficiency. They are the sort

of guys that you would be happy to have

working in and around your home, Carol says.

To make an appointment for your free pipe check,

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Confidence

returns with a

Lovebite smile

Dawn, from Pukekohe in Auckland,

couldn’t be more pleased with her new

Lovebite dentures, made by internationally

renowned clinical dental technician,

Richard Greenlees, which have restored

the look of her natural smile, and given

her considerable confidence.

“When we started the process, Richard

asked me to bring in some photographs

of my natural teeth, and put a lot of time

into recreating the exact look. My new

dentures are so much better than the old

sets I’ve had over the last 17 years. I’m

very happy.”

Dawn, who is previously from

Christchurch, flew down from Auckland

weekly over five weeks for consultations

with Richard, and found him to be a ‘good

guy’ to deal with.

“He is very accommodating and easy

going. It was also great to deal directly

everyone else has.

with the person making my dentures.

This was a much better process than with

previous dentures, where I had to pretty

much go with what I was given whether

I liked them or not. Richard was very

patient and is fussy with his work. He

made my teeth look so natural, real, and

a little bit aged, not like the sparkly white

dentures everyone else has.”

Dawn says the return of her confidence

is one of the biggest pluses of her new

Lovebite dentures.

“Losing your teeth is not a nice thing

to go through, and can make you feel

like you’ve lost your personality. My new

dentures have recreated my natural look

and brought my confidence right back

A moveable feast that is

much more than chocolate

Easter is both the most sombre and

joyful time in the Christian calendar,

calling believers to remember

the crucifixion of Christ and His

resurrection. Its date changes each

year, making it a ‘moveable feast.’ The

Easter story lies at the heart of the

Christian faith and its importance is

celebrated with special celebrations.

But just what does it all mean?

The week leading up to Easter

Sunday is Holy Week which starts with

Palm Sunday, commemorating Jesus’

arrival into Jerusalem. It is marked in

many churches by giving palm fronds,

or a local equivalent like flax, which

represents the way He was welcomed

and revered.

Maundy Thursday, or Holy Thursday,

remembers the Last Supper where the

first Holy Communion was established

and is a fundamental feature of many

Christian services 2,000 years later.

The day also recognises Jesus’ betrayal,

arrest and trial and is marked in

Christian churches by services of footwashing

and the stripping of alters.

That is followed by Good Friday,

the date on which Jesus Christ was

executed by crucifixion and the

markings on the hot cross buns we all

enjoy are representative of that. As well

as being a public holiday, it is a solemn

acknowledgement of the horrific death

that ultimately led to the establishment

of the Christian faith. Catholics and

Anglicans alike commemorate the

events of Good Friday in the Stations

of the Cross, the church bells are not

rung and alters remain bare.

Holy Week concludes with

Easter Sunday, the most significant

celebration in the Christian calendar

and a time to rejoice. It celebrates

Christ’s resurrection and the triumph

of good over evil. Christians across

Christchurch will be attending church

services and it is the day when arguably

everyone’s favourite part of Easter –

chocolate eggs – are given.

So, when you are enjoying your

Easter Eggs this year, take some time

to reflect on the true meaning behind

Holy Week.

The team qualified for

the national final in their

“The final was a classic

North Island v South

Island showdown,” said

Wilson-Pyne.

“We (the under-15

eight) pushed Hamilton

Boys, who have been the

perennial champions of

that for over the decade. It

is really a testimony to the

work of the coaching staff

and the kids,” said Wilson-

Pyne.

“Although our boys fell

slightly short of winning it,

they put in a hell of a fight

and that’s what we are all

about.”

The team was made

up of Lucas MacDonald,

Cameron Maughan,

Brodie Barsby, Jack Hearn,

Cameron McConchie,

Adam Chapman, Elliot

Stanley, Matthew Sudlow

and cox Joel Coleman.

The under-16 quad

which won bronze featured

Scott Shackleton, Cameron

Maughan, Jack Hearn

(boat), Matthew Smith and

cox Joel Coleman.

Two of the boys

Cameron and Jack were

part of the crew who

narrowly escaped injury

in January this year, when

a 30m tree fell on it’s boat

during training on the

Avon River.

The team raced with

a replacement boat after

theirs was written-off

following the incident.

Wilson-Pyne said the

boys were thrilled with

their performance.

“We have a philosophy

that when a boat goes

out there it represents

everyone in the squad. All

of the team are thrilled

that the boys have gotten

these medals.

“They have all played

their part through-out the

season to get those boats

where they were at,” he

said.

A EXCITING showcase of local artworks,

free workshops, and live music makes up a

fabulous new event taking place this Easter

weekend - e Wakaroa Pigeon Bay Art

Trail.

While the main exhibition and associated

events take place at the Pigeon Bay Hall (in

Banks Peninsula, a little over an hours drive

from Christchurch), additional artworks

form an Art Trail with interesting pieces

installed and featured en route from the

Summit Road/Pigeon Bay Road bus shelter,

to Knox Church yard, the Pigeon Bay

Boating Club, and Wakaroa Point.

Based on stories shared by the Bay

Community and utilising materials from the

Bay wherever possible, these site-specific

and audience responsive art works seek to

celebrate the life and stories of the Bay.

“e trail was inspired by my mum’s

stories of growing up in Pigeon Bay. She

always spoke of her childhood as a time of

formation, of connection and belonging,”

explained artist and event orgniser, Keren

Oertly. “I was interested to explore these

ideas of identity in relation to place. e

community in the Bay was incredibly

supportive and generous throughout this

process – none of this would be possible

without them.”

Providing the soundscape are two highly

respected Canterbury based acts, e Swan

Sisters (Amiria Grenell & Amy Grace

delivering their delicate blend of folk,

country, dreamy pop) and Americana/Blues

outfit, e Great Depression Blues Band.

Also included on the programme is a

presentation, ‘100 Years of Pigeon Bay with

June Hay’. is special address takes place at

3pm on Easter Sunday at the Knox Church.

e Wakaroa Pigeon Bay Art Trail |

Saturday 31st March to Sunday 1st April |

10am - 5pm each day. Free admission.
