PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Happy Frank in the car game • By Bridget Rutherford RUGBY LEAGUE great Frank Endacott reckons he has never been busier after going into the motor vehicle industry. The former Warriors and Kiwis coach and his son Shane are running Endacott Motor Group, which specialises in Japanese vehicles and selected European cars. “At 70-years-old I’m putting more hours into the day than I’ve ever done in my life,” he said. “You never stop learning no matter how old you are.” Mr Endacott, who was inducted into the Sporting Legends of Canterbury at the Nexia New Zealand Canterbury Sports Awards three weeks ago, is a rugby league player agent alongside business partner Peter Brown. He is currently part of a panel tasked with interviewing and appointing a new Kiwis coach, does charity work, and has just welcomed his sixth greatgrandchild. •Turn to page 4 GOOD TIMES: Matthew Ridge and Frank Endacott celebrate after the Kiwis victory over Australia at North Harbour Stadium in 1997. Bid to beat hospital’s park and ride woes before winter • By Bridget Rutherford NEW Government MPs are working to resolve Christchurch Hospital’s parking situation by the start of winter as the situation reaches “crunch point.” The Deans Ave park and ride set-up will be the focus of a meeting between Labour MPs, Canterbury District Health Board and city council representatives next week. They have been tasked with coming up with options to resolve the issues, including the lack of shelter for those waiting in bad weather to catch the shuttle and the site’s general condition. Those options will be tabled next week with the aim of finding a solution before winter. Port Hills Labour MP Ruth Dyson said she requested a meeting with Christchurch Central MP Duncan Webb, Christchurch East MP Poto Williams, Minister of Greater Christchurch Regeneration Megan Woods, city councillor Deon Swiggs and CDHB representatives last week. “I put out a message and said can we sort this together and I’ve had really positive responses back.” She said everyone was looking at options for what was a citywide and regional problem, and they would be tabled at the meeting. •Turn to page 7
