TUESDAY, APRIL 10, 2018 Locally Owned www.star.kiwi Mobile Service Available • By Emily O’Connell AN UPPER Riccarton butcher has proven himself to be a cut above his Aussie rivals at an international competition. Elite Meats owner Corey Winder was named in the all star team at the World Butchers’ Challenge in Northern Ireland. Mr Winder and his team, the Mega centre feedback Denton Park attracts more submissions than Cathedral Page 3 Page 5 Pure South Sharp Blacks, which includes Woolston butcher Jeremy Garth, finished second in the competition. He said the challenge started as a “transtasman test match” seven years ago. The preparation for this year’s World Butchers’ Challenge was intense as the team members met in Auckland every two months for lengthy weekend practices. Mr Winder said coming second against 11 other countries was a “fantastic” result. “To get second behind Ireland was a huge achievement and to be ahead of Australia is an even bigger thing for us,” he said.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel told the board on Thursday it had the okay from the city council to make a submission if Fulton Hogan applies for a resource consent to create a quarry. Board chairman Mike Mora told Western News the submission would likely oppose Fulton Hogan’s plan. “You can just about guarantee it . . . because we [the community board] don’t believe quarries should be so close to residential areas,” he said. Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if the city council would endorse the board’s submission. “I’d like to think so because the city council has had their eyes open as well over recent years over the crystalline silica risk,” he said. Mr Mora said the community board will be “representing and advocating” for the Templeton community. •Turn to page 5 Your best choice in the West Pip Sutton BCM (Marketing) Residential Sales & Development Specialist - Licensee Salesperson Next Step Realty Limited Licensed (REAA 2008) Mobile: 027 224 9524 DDI: 03 421 8417 Email: pip.sutton@raywhite.com BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
