SWEET SOUNDS: St Andrew’s College year 12 students Lewis Edmond and Jenna Wells performing at the 41st National Youth

Jazz Competition.

Bittersweet win for St Andrew’s big band

• By Sophie Cornish

THE ST Andrew’s College big

band had extra incentive to

win at the National Youth Jazz

Competition – bass player, Tom

Fastier, collapsed and died the

day before the competition

began.

“Tom was a bass player from

Cashmere High School who was

playing with our big band this

year. He had a strong chance of

winning best bass player at the

festival as he was a very accomplished

musician,” head of music

Duncan Ferguson said.

“We were delighted to win, but

it was bittersweet,” he said.

St Andrew’s won the most

outstanding big band title at the

competition in Tauranga.

The band dedicated its set to

Tom, who died while on his way

to Cashmere High on March 27.

His death was possibly related to

a medical event.

Board

launches

petition

to get new

community

facility

• By Sophie Cornish and Julia Evans

THE PAPANUI-Innes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to fight the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being collected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

planned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hills Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

The removal of funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jones said the board’s role

is to represent the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfilling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and annual

plans are all about lobbying the

council.”

big band for coping with the massive

emotional hurdle they had to deal with at the

recent National Youth Jazz Competition

(see page 1).

Band member Tom Fastier died tragically the day before the

festival. Not only did the band play but they won the big band title

– and that is an exceptional achievement given the circumstances.

As the college’s head of music Duncan Ferguson said: “We were

delighted to win, but it was bittersweet.”

St Andrew’s also stood out from an individual point of view.

Serge Beaton won the Rodger Fox Trophy for the most outstanding

trombonist and Angus Rainey won the Edwina Thorne Trophy

for the most outstanding trumpet or flugel.

Well done.

Plans reveal indoor learner’s pool

• By Sophie Cornish and

Julia Evans

THE NEW Edgeware Pool

will not look anything like it’s

predecessor, new plans have

revealed.

Just-released designs for the

$4.5 million-$5 million project

show the complex will include

an indoor learner’s pool, which

will be a major source of income

for the facility.

Initially the

facility was set

to have two

heated outdoor

pools – but the

learner pool will

move indoors,

Pauline

Cotter

while the 25m

pool will remain

outside. The

new designs also include a small

gym, car park and outdoor area.

The St Albans Pool and Pavilion

group commissioned the

plans from Apollo Design, the

designers of QE II Park.

Group spokesman Stephen

Anderson said it is pleased with

the plans and pricing.

He said the indoor pool would

add a revenue stream, as well as

“mitigate any concerns” neighbours

had with noise.

The complex will have no

operating cost for the ratepayer

as it is an entirely community

“To cover the indoor pool

means they can get revenue all

Cr Cotter said the model being

used in Edgeware should be used

in communities across the city.

The group gained resource

consent to build a complex on

the Edgeware Rd site after a

hearing last March. In 2016 the

city council sold the group the

land for $1.

reopens its doors in June.

Cartwright steps down as chairman

MacDonald

wants to

lead board

• By Julia Evans

FENDALTON-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

chairman David Cartwright has

stayed true to his word.

Mr Cartwright tabled his

resignation as chairman at last

Monday’s board

meeting.

He said it was

always his plan

to step down 18

months into the

role.

Sam

MacDonald

“That was

always the intent

from day one, that

I would do half a

term,” he said.

Mr Cartwright said he was

stepping aside to let other

board members take on more

responsibility.

“It’s about building expertise

and giving people a chance . . .

there are very capable people on

the board.”

Mr Cartwright disclosed he

recently “had a birthday with a

zero in it” and had received some

fly fishing gear.

RETIRING: David Cartwright (left) will step down as Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board chairman on Monday. He recently awarded Peter Lawrence first place in the board’s

garden awards.

“So maybe there will be a bit

more time for fly fishing but I’ll

still be working hard in my role

as Fendalton representative,” he

said.

The board will vote in a

new chairperson at its next

meeting on Monday. Until then,

Mr Cartwright will remain

chairman.

deputy. “I’m confident I will have

the support to be chair, I will be

nominating David as my deputy

as we make an excellent team,”

Mr MacDonald said.

Mr Cartwright was first

elected to the board in 2010.

He served as deputy under

chairwoman Val Carter during

his second term from 2013

until being elected chairman in

2016.

During a city council meeting

on Thursday, Mr Cartwright

was thanked by Mayor Lianne

Weed could

jeopardise

fishing event

THE ANNUAL Take A Kid

fishing day at The Groynes could

be in jeopardy if the lakes it uses

are not cleaned up.

Organiser Kids Fishing

Charitable Trust approached the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board with concerns

the huge amount of weed was

enough to cancel this year’s event.

Board member Aaron Campbell

said: “We need to get this fixed . . .

it’s a real possibility it may not go

ahead.”

City council staff are investigating

options for cleaning up the

weed, said head of parks Brent

Smith.

Approaching Canterbury University’s

Student Volunteer Army

about the possibility of a joint

project is one option.

Mr Campbell said the trust had

organised a working party and

spent more than 30 hours trying

to clear the lake with manpower.

But it was going to take more than

that.

“The option of having one of

the weed remover barges from the

Avon, Heathcote or out at the Styx

was discussed,” he said.

Mr Campbell said weed was an

issue in lakes and rivers city-wide

due to the hot, wet summer.

Rotary raises $130k for groups in need

ROTARY PAPANUI has had

Every year the group organises

Rotarians used their organisational

The 10 groups raised about

$1500-1700 each, which will go

towards youth camps, pre-school

equipment, secondary school

trips, sports and cultural events.

The group also partnered with

which supplied a trailer filled

with more than $8000 in prizes

for a raffle fundraiser.

The $27,000 raised was divided

between St John, The Canterbury

The money has sent St John

Frocks, Feathers & Fabrication

John Emery’s latest exhibition at Little River Gallery

Although born and raised in the American Midwest,

John Emery has spent the past twenty-five years shuttling

back and forth between Dayton, Ohio and Burkes Pass,

New Zealand, where he established a second home and

studio in 2000.

“It is not just the object, but also its history--its

veritable shadow-- that I set out to record in my work.

It is the fragmented story that haunts me. Memories,

symbolism, physical similarities, all play a part in creating

the “fabrication”. Objects are often from a bygone era, or

worn with repeated use,

reflecting time’s passage.

At times they are literally

in pieces: the shattered

porcelain, the cast-off

sardine tin, a bird feather,

or watching the flight of a

fantail. In reclaiming them

for my own tromp l’oiel

still life constructions, I

conjure them into a new

world. Like life itself,

each work resonates with

both the story and history

associated with some

objects, and the imagined

The Invincibles

Killer Look

potential of others.

My painting process typically begins with a solitary

object, a toy bear, or a Victorian hunting dress. A visual

narrative is then constructed in the same way that I

fabricated stories about the neglected objects found in

my grandparents’ long forgotten trunks. As with all my

works, some elements become three-dimensional as I

form them from paper, the most versatile material I know”

John Emery.

Time flies over us, but

leaves its shadow behind.

Retaining top spot aim of chorus

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A TOP a cappella American

coach is helping some of the

city’s best barbershop singers

win a national competition for

the 11th time.

Lea Beverley will be working

with the Christchurch City

Chorus over the next month to

help it win the Sweet Adelines

New Zealand

regional contest

in May at

Wellington.

Already the

chorus is one

of Australasia’s

highest

achieving

Lea Beverley

women’s a cappella choruses

having won the national competition

10 times in a row.

Beverley arrived in the city

last weekend and is touring the

country to teach other a cappella

singers.

“I love New Zealand . . . the

people are amazing, the country

is beautiful and the singers

throughout the country are so

devoted to getting better,” Beverley

said.

She said she will be mostly

working on helping the chorus

to sing “with a lot of emotion.”

“I work on the technical elements

like singing the vowels

properly . . . consonants and

singing all the words together,”

she said.

As part of its preparations

for the competition, the chorus

will present concert A Cappella

Champions On Show at St Margaret’s

College later this month

to preview its competition package.

The show will be hosted by

Beverley.

The chorus performed the

show to finish fifth in the 2016

Sweet Adelines International

Chorus Competition in Las

Vegas.

“We want to be first one day

but we are slowly creeping

up,” musical director Virginia

Humphrey-Taylor said.

She said the chorus got Beverley

to help train the new people

joining.

“New people are always joining

the group . . . we want to

make sure everybody is trained.

We always have new music we

have to sing at a high level,” she

said.

The chorus is hoping to win in

Wellington so it can take part in

the international competition in

New Orleans next year.

Humphrey-Taylor said the

chorus will be taking on more

“show music” this year performing

songs including Elton John’s

Can You Feel the Love Tonight

and Vera Lynn’s A Nightingale

She is classically trained as a

pianist, but joined Sweet Adelines

22 years ago.

Three of the choruses she runs

have won nine regional competitions

Mr Ferguson said schools

“For the first

St Andrew’s also won a combo

Fire rages, homes at risk

Cherry Cornelius – Once

again they are not freedom

campers, they do not have

facilities in their cars such

as a toilet, shower or enough

water for their needs. They will

be there so they can use the

running water which is in every

cemetery for hand washing.

They will be doing the washing

– dishes, body and clothing.

I’m willing to bet most will be

urinating behind the fence. We

freedom camp, the difference

is we have complete self

containment.

They are free-loaders and free

litterers. Please don’t ever put

us in the same category as these

people that are free-loading

their way around our country.

We have paid huge amounts of

money to be self contained and

respect and love our travelling.

Andrea Lamont – I see

this as a golden opportunity for

scaring the living daylights out

of them. Horror movie theme.

Oh such fun.

Davena Shields – If they’re

only there overnight and not

causing trouble or defecating

everywhere, then I can’t see the

problem. Sorry, but some people

need to get over themselves.

There are families out there who

have real struggles of their own

everyday.

Helen Leggatt – To those

who say they’re doing no harm,

I suspect you’d think very

differently if they were parking

outside your driveway, leaving

stained toilet paper, remnants

of cooking/food, and rubbish at

your fence line.

It’s not the location, per

se (although I think using

cemeteries is somewhat

disrespectful, not to those in it,

but those who visit loved ones)

but what they leave behind. The

rubbish down the Waimakariri

Gorge from freedom campers

can sometimes be gross.

COMPLAINTS: Freedom campers are drawing criticism from residents for parking outside the Waimairi Cemetery in Burnside.

Kerry

Beardsley

– They are

using the

cemetery and

church steps

to cook food

etc and some

can be quite

intimidating

while

walking

past. It also

seems to be

a meeting

point where they have larger

gatherings.

Pauline Handley – I wonder

when and if the council will do

a survey to see how many at any

given time are actually travelling

freedom campers and which are

people living in vans etc because

of the high rental prices in

Christchurch?

Ben O’Connor

– I hate freedom

campers, they have no

respect for anything

or anyone and they

are so selfish like it’s

there right to do what

they want where they

want.

Cath Milio – We

don’t know if there

are issues.

I would hope they have basic

respect for a cemetery and do

not use the grounds for toileting,

eating etc.

Parking up outside a cemetery

is hardly a crime.

Johnny Alderdice – Some

people must just look for reasons

to get offended.

Stephen Graham – No class

at all these particular freedom

campers.

Stephanie Hagerty – Are

there public toilets there or do

they use the cemetery?

Daisy Graham – If motels

and camping grounds were

more affordable, maybe freedom

campers would not be a

problem.

Graeme Palmer – At

least they are not parked in the

cemetery.

John Baxendine – Need to

make places for them all over

the country.

Kim Button – Yes, I saw

them there recently – I find it a

bit strange.

Sarah Spencer Smith – I

heard that freedom campers

were parking inside the

cemetery.

James David Foote –

Get over yourselves. Do the

cemetery’s residents seem

upset?

Dean Comyns – Rubbish

everywhere last time I went past,

and the same van in the same

spot as the picture, annoying.

Wendy Woo – Get over

yourselves, you’re lucky you have

a home.

Former Shirley skipper

to lead NZ under-20

side at Oceania champs

LEADER: Tom Christie in action during his time at Shirley Boys’

High School. (Right) – Christie was a part of the under-20 NZ

squad which won the world championship in Georgia last year.

• By Gordon FIndlater

FORMER SHIRLEY Boys’ High

School first XV captain Tom

Christie has vowed to lead from

the front at the Oceania rugby

under-20 championship on the

Gold Coast.

The promising loose forward

and Christchurch club man will

captain New Zealand at the Gold

Coast tournament.

“To be given a leadership role is

an honour,” said Christie.

“I pride myself on leadership

qualities.

“It’s something that helps

you perform I find. For me, my

performance is my No 1 goal,

but being given a leadership role

emphasises the need to perform

for me.”

The squad will assemble in

Auckland on April 21 before

departing for the Gold Coast.

Canterbury players Ngane

Punivai, Will Tucker and former

Christchurch Boys’ High School

outside back Will Jordan are also

part of the squad.

New Zealand will play Tonga,

Fiji and Australia. The team will

be looking to claim their fifth

title in as many years.

Members of the squad will be

pushing their case for selection

in the world championship next

month in France.

Christie has Mitre 10 Cup

experience with Canterbury and

Beautiful jewellery

in unique designs

Bella Silver in Merivale Mall has been

supplying beautiful jewellery for delighted

customers from Christchurch and further

afield since 1996.

Owner Alfredo Escaip travels around the

world to personally select exquisite pieces

for his store, as well as creating custommade

engagement rings and wedding

bands in his Christchurch workshop.

The range includes precious and semiprecious

stones, the majority of which are

totally natural, set in sterling silver and

gold. Necklaces, bracelets, pendants, rings

are all on display – so many stunning and

unique designs to choose from for gifts or

for a special treat for yourself.

Bella Silver also offers jewellery repairs,

a professional watch repair service, and

watch battery fitting.

Originally a mechanical engineer in

his home country, Mexico, Alfredo made

jewellery as a hobby. Then, after moving to

New Zealand in 1995, he decided to turn

jewellery-making into a full-time career.

As he says, “It’s much more artistic and

creative than engineering.”

Bella Silver is open seven days a week,

so next time you are shopping in Merivale

Mall, stop by and take a look at the

amazing selection. And check out their

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

FROM THE BOARD

History shows the heart of our school

remains strong and true through

change. Marian College was established

in 1982 with the bringing together

of two Catholic secondary schools

for girls– McKillop College and St

Mary’s College – the latter being one

of the oldest schools in Canterbury,

established in 1893.

The gospel values that Marian College

was built on continue through to today,

along with the guidance and steady

support of the Catholic Diocese of

Christchurch.

The appointment of our new Bishop and

his intention to make Marian College a

priority – signals the next new phase for

our school.

Our community is rich in experience,

knowledge, faith and diversity and

we value every contribution. The

Marian College Board extends an open

invitation to everyone who is part of

Marian College’s history - and future -

to connect with us. This includes past

and present students, immediate and

extended family, and next generations -

the young women who will lead us into

the future.

There will be opportunities to be

involved, and to have a say on what our

new school will look like.

By clicking the ‘following’ tab on the

Marian College Facebook page you

can select ‘see first’ in your newsfeed,

to ensure you receive the latest Marian

College news first.

Join us on our journey.

Marian College Board of Trustees Chair

MODEL UN

Unlike any other high school event,

the Canterbury Model UN 2018 brings

together 200 students for two days of

debate and discussion on issues affecting

society today.

Seven Year 13 Marian College students

participated recently – pictured from back

left: Katie Ryan, Jodie Worthington, Kitty

Aloysius, Izzy Bloxham (Head Girl),

Louise Daly, Rose Heslop-Brown (front)

and Bernie Simpson.

Jodie said she found the experience

extremely valuable. “Each of us was

assigned a country and spent two days

debating global issues, problem solving,

meeting 200 other students and having

heaps of fun,” Jodie said.

PASIFIKA

CELEBRATED

Marian College supported its largest

ever performing Pasifika Group

at the sPacPac Polyfest 2018

Festival held in Burwood recently.

The Marian College Pasifika Group

also had the most students from

any one school on stage – 43

students performed – and had

the honour of closing the annual

festival.

The students performed traditional

Samoan items with their own twist

of Marian Magic. Many hours of

practice led to stunning

performances at Polyfest, the

Marian College Fia Fia night and

school assembly.

IN THE COMMUNITY

Marian College has a long standing mission

to encourage young women to fulfil their

potential and contribute to the common

good of society.

Lions Clubs also place value on service

and have a long history of contributing to

communities all over the world.

Recently Deputy Head student Rachael

Nilsson was one of several young people

invited to speak at the Lions District 202E

convention, on young people’s views of

community service and how traditional

Lions Clubs can involve more young

people.

The Marian College choir also had the

honour of singing at the convention’s

rededication and remembrance service.

KIDSTUFF

The history of

Papanui’s

Superb quality and

variety at Kidstuff

Langdons Rd

Papanui Heritage Group chairman

Murray Williams writes about the

history of Thomas Langdon of

Langdons Rd

THOMAS LANGDON was born in

Somerset in 1831 and gained experience

working on his father’s farm before

emigrating to Canterbury in 1858.

He and his wife Georgiana Langdon

arrived at Lyttelton on September 21 on

the Zealandia after a 98-day voyage from

Gravesend.

The Langdons had occupied a cabin, an

indication that they were wealthy enough

to avoid the lack of privacy of those with

more limited means who had to endure

the cramped and dingy steerage area

below decks.

Mr Langdon gradually assembled

significant holdings in Papanui.

He purchased and leased land from the

original rural sections, three, five and

323.

The former two areas had contained

most of the Papanui Bush which had been

cut out by 1857.

Mr Langdon obviously saw the value

of the land as a farming proposition and

it appears he ran cattle, an interest that

he retained later in his life when he was

notable as a judge of sheep and cattle at A

and P shows.

By 1859, he had established a butchery

in Vagues Rd, a business later relocated

to the much larger Christchurch market,

an interesting indicator of the growing

interdependence between the city and its

satellite. The Colombo St butcher’s shop

was run as a partnership and was still

operating as Langdon and Steel at the

beginning of the 20th century.

Mr and Mrs Langdon had eight

children, an important contribution to

the local economy. The family home

was probably the first on the road that

ran north-west from the north road and

parallel with Harewood Rd and owed its

name to its first occupants.

In 1887, there were only six houses in

IN MEMORIAM: This headstone in the

St Paul’s Anglican Church Cemetery

on Harewood Rd commemorates

the lives of Thomas and Georgiana

Langdon.

this rural road which provided access to

farms and orchards.

By 1951, lots in Langdons Rd were

numbered from 8-129, but the street

petered out before reaching Bishops Rd

(now Greers Rd).

Mr Langdon died in 1904 (his wife

had pre-deceased him by two years) but

his name still prevails in the name of the

street which, in 1955, was extended to

link up to Greers Rd, a move designed to

give access to the new state housing area

developed in north Papanui in the mid-

1950s.

However, Mr Langdon’s name had not

been retained without a battle. In 1926,

the council attempted to rename the road

Lambeth St but local protest ensured

that the commemoration of its first

householder remains to this day.

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

NOR’WEST NEWS

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior

clients visit complaining of pain in one or

both hips.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a

back muscle could also be the cause, as

shown in the image.

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

and wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the hip, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the hip in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

not, without financial commitment.
