Wigram Retirement Village

residents may be a step closer to

having heavy vehicles banned

from driving on their street.

It comes as operational

guidelines for the new Traffic and

Parking Bylaw are close to being

finalised.

Residents have been pleading

with the city council, Halswell

Ward city councillor Anne

Galloway and Wigram MP

Megan Woods to put restrictions

on heavy vehicles which have

been keeping them awake at night

for a year.

In October, village owner John

Tooby launched a verbal attack

on four elderly residents, while

being interviewed about a sign

they had put up on a village fence

protesting noisy trucks. A resident

then removed the sign and Mr

Tooby later apologised for the

ordeal.

City council manager

operations transport Steffan

Thomas said the guidelines have

been drafted and circulated.

IT’S TAKEN a while but there is now light

at the end of the tunnel for long-suffering

Lodestar Ave residents in Wigram.

Operational guidelines for the new

Traffic and Parking Bylaw are close to

being finished, which will give the city

council power to stop heavy trucks from driving along streets

like Lodestar.

Lodestar went into rest home folklore when Lady Wigram

Retirement Village owner John Tooby lost the plot and went

ballistic at his residents in October who were protesting about

trucks using Lodestar Ave.

It just happened to be taped by one of our editorial staff

covering the protest. To Tooby’s credit, he later apologised to

those residents, putting it down to one of those moments. He

wouldn’t be alone there.

Top health tips for winter

Staying well

These may be the best 10 pieces of advice to keep you and

your family healthy this winter.

TEN TIPS FOR

STAYING WELL THIS WINTER Hornby Panthers unsung heroes

1. Have the influenza vaccination. For some people the flu

vaccine is free.

2. Wash your hands. Winter illnesses are easily spread by

hands. Wash both sides of the hands and between the fingers

for at least 20 seconds, use soap, and dry hands with a

paper towel or clean dry towel.

3. Exercise daily. A 30-minute walk outside gives you some

fresh air and helps your body get stronger.

4. Choose to eat healthy foods. This helps to build your

immune system. Include fresh vegetables with some lean

protein and try to reduce sugar and salt intake.

Pampering day

Check out the Hornby Panthers ‘Women in League Day’

on May 10 at Leslie Park.

5. Get fresh air in your home. Open windows during the day

(even for a short time) and then close them before the sun

goes down or before you turn on the heating. A well-aired

home helps keep it dry and keeps your family well.

6. Reduce dampness. Keep the bathroom door closed when

showering or bathing to lessen dampness settling around

the house. Dampness allows mould and mildew to grow

and can lead to respiratory illness.

7. Consider a dehumidifier. If possible use a dehumidifier in

your home as it can help keep your home dry, especially if

there is a lot of moisture or dampness.

Page 17

8. Take care with coughs and sneezing. You may be spreading

bugs if you are coughing or sneezing, and the best way

to avoid this is to stay away from work or school. Don’t

cough and sneeze around babies and small children as they

can get sick very easily.

9. Quit Smoking - If you do smoke, do so outside, and never

smoke around children. Visit Quitline The Quit Group NZ (or

free call 0800 778 778) for support on quitting

10. Use Healthline or your GP clinic after hours line for

advice. If you or your child is feeling unwell you can get free

health advice from registered nurses by phoning Healthline

on 0800 611 116.

Urumau Reserve plan on hold

Community

board seeks

more detail

• By Sarla Donovan

AN UPDATED development

plan for Lyttelton’s Urumau

Reserve has been put on hold.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board rejected

the city council staff

recommendation to adopt the

plan at a special meeting on

Monday.

Board

chairwoman

Pam Richardson

said it wanted

more background

information on

the work that

Pam

Richardson

has been done

on tracks, trails

and other areas of

development in the reserve.

She would not specify what

type of information the board

is seeking, saying only that it

needed “further clarification”

on some issues.

“All the work that’s been done

in the reserve, we just wanted a

bit more background on it.”

The aim of the development

plan, originally created in

2008, was to increase public

access and use of the reserve,

control pests and weeds, and

enhance the township’s natural

landscape and birdlife.

Developments in the 10 years

since then have included new

mountain bike tracks, steps

and signage, native plant revegetation,

weed control and a

developing pest management

strategy.

Ms Richardson said the

board had raised a number of

questions with city council staff

over historical development in

the reserve, and it was now a

matter of waiting for them to

come back with answers.

The plan would be approved

when the board members had

“enough information,” she said.

There is no time frame in place

at the moment, Ms Richardson

said, and “it might take some

time to work through.”

A city council report on

the proposed plan said it had

attracted an “unexpected” level

of public interest, with 625

Key concerns raised included

privacy, parking and traffic

residents; environmental

to mountain biking in the

CONSENT FOR SKATE PARK

After months of delays, the Halswell

Domain skate park has been granted

resource consent. Its consent was

held up due to potential skate board

noise. City council head of parks

Brent Smith said the skate park will

be built in stages, with construction

set to start at the end of August. He

said the skate park would then be

completed by Christmas.

BUCHANANS RD SPEED

The city council is proposing to

reduce the speed limit on Buchanans

Rd outside the Delamain

subdivision, from 70 to 50km/h.

The change aims to deal with the

increased traffic in this area due

to recent and proposed residential

development. To make a submission

please visit https://ccc.govt.nz/thecouncil/consultations-and-submissions/haveyoursay/show/139.

Public

consultation closes on Monday.

HARRINGTON PARK TOILET

A toilet is going to be built in Riccarton’s

Harrington Park next month.

This follows public consultation on

the proposal, which finished last

week. The park, on Peverel St, currently

has no toilet. On completion,

city council staff will work with the

local community on having an appropriate

artwork provided on the

exterior of the building, as well as a

community noticeboard.

PROP IUMA Mulitalo has

notched up 150 premiership

games for the Linwood Keas.

The hard-nosed prop was given

the honour of taking the final

conversion in his side’s 44-10

over Riccarton Knights Saturday,

which he landed.

“It was straight out in front,”

he said. “I tried not to think

about it and just kick it.”

It was nice to get a start and

while I’m sore it was great to get

another win,” he said.

The humble front-rower started

his tenure at the club in 2007 and

has been a mainstay ever since.

“When I first came into the

team we made three premiership

finals and then after that we went

through some rebuilding years,”

he says. “So I’ve been there for

the good and the bad.”

The 33-year-old made his

premiership debut for Eastern

as a fresh-faced front-rower in

2002.

After a stint with Celebration,

he is now one of the Keas’ most

treasured veterans.

Coach Andrew Auimatagi says

Mulitalo never shies away from a

tough carry and is always willing

to give back to the club.

“He’s a strong but quiet leader

within our team and he contributes

a great deal to our culture.

“He coaches our under-18 team

three times a week so he’s giving

back and passing on his knowledge

to the next generation.”

Mulitalo’s first memory of the

sport was playing prop for the

Sydenham Swans under-7s.

“I like to compete and I really

enjoy being involved in the

games.”

He says he was most proud of

being involved in the club rebuild

which happened after 2009.

“The club is in a really strong

place having won the last two

finals but there was a rebuild for

a few years where a lot of people

worked hard to get the club to

where we are now.”

Mulitalo says over his 16 years

of playing in the top grade, he

says the biggest change has been

the increased speed of the game

and the added emphasis on the

tackle and play the ball.

‘The game has sped-up and

people want to play the ball

quicker so you have to win the

slow that down.”

honoured for

service to seniors

• By J acob Page

LYNDSAY DICK continues to

give back to the sport she was

first introduced to as a five-yearold.

The Halswell resident was

named senior

volunteer of the

year at the Tennis

Canterbury awards.

Ms Dick (right)

received the award

for her role as

administrator of

Tennis Canterbury’s

seniors’ group,

which consists of

more than 200

players over the age

of 35.

She is also an Ellesmere Tennis

Sub-Association competitions

committee member.

“It’s great for people to see

tennis as a game that can be

played at any age and that there

are opportunities in the sport.”

Ms Dick started playing tennis

55 years ago as a five-year-old.

“It was a family sport that we

all played on the weekend and I

learned the game by hitting the

SPORTS

SOUTHERN VIEW

ball up against our garage door.”

She has been a regular on the

Christchurch inter-club scene

since 1978.

She has spent most of her

time between division one and

premier and has returned in

recent years to the

club she first started

with, Hagley Park.

“I plan on retiring

from the higher level

of tennis soon, but

I’ll continue playing

tennis at other levels,”

she said. “You never

give up.”

Her passion for

promoting rural

tennis led her to

become a member off the Tennis

Canterbury board.

“It’s always nice to receive such

an award because you

don’t do it for the recognition,”

she said. Ms Dick says the

Canterbury seniors season

is busiest during the winter

months.

As well as tennis, Ms Dick is

also a keen badminton player but

she says tennis holds a special

place with her.

goes down or before you turn on the heating. A well-aired

home helps keep it dry and keeps your family well.

6. Reduce dampness. Keep the bathroom door closed when

showering or bathing to lessen dampness settling around

the house. Dampness allows mould and mildew to grow

and can lead to respiratory illness.

7. Consider a dehumidifier. If possible use a dehumidifier in

your home as it can help keep your home dry, especially if

there is a lot of moisture or dampness.

8. Take care with coughs and sneezing. You may be spreading

bugs if you are coughing or sneezing, and the best way

to avoid this is to stay away from work or school. Don’t

cough and sneeze around babies and small children as they

can get sick very easily.

9. Quit Smoking - If you do smoke, do so outside, and never

smoke around children. Visit Quitline The Quit Group NZ (or

free call 0800 778 778) for support on quitting

10. Use Healthline or your GP clinic after hours line for

advice. If you or your child is feeling unwell you can get free

health advice from registered nurses by phoning Healthline

on 0800 611 116.

FREE OFFERS

ATTRACT CUSTOMERS AT NEW CHEMIST

Since opening just a few weeks ago, Bargain Chemist in Riccarton

Road has already attracted hundreds of customers

with its free prescriptions for all fully subsidised medicines,

and free blister packs, and was the first chemist in Christchurch

to do so.

The reason for these free offers is that they want people to

take their medications as they should, business partner Davy

explains. By not having to pay for their prescribed medications,

customers won’t avoid getting them because they can’t

afford it, while the free blister packs help eliminate confusion

for people taking several medications, he says.

Davy is one of two qualified pharmacists at Bargain Chemist,

who can also provide advice and counselling for customers on

any health-related matters.

Bargain Chemist also stocks an extensive range of vitamins

and health supplements, as well as a full range of beauty

and skincare products, and by purchasing the stock at very

competitive prices they are able to pass the savings on to

their customers by selling them at much lower prices than

elsewhere.

The six friendly, knowledgeable staff members in the store

are also happy to advise on the best skincare and makeup

products for customers’ needs.

Bargain Chemist opened its doors at 117a Riccarton Rd on

March 12. The store is centrally located in the main shopping

area, close to Westfield. Opening hours are Monday to Friday

8am-7pm, weekends 9am-6pm. Open seven days a week apart

from Christmas Day.

FASHION STORES CATERING

FOR GROWING CUSTOMER DIVERSITY

As The Hub Hornby has undergone developments and

improvements over the last few years, this exciting shopping

centre has been growing its fashion offering to cater for the

increasing diversity of customers that shop there.

The fashion stores offer styles for all ages and fashion tastes.

They include Caroline Eve, Jeanswest, K &K Fashion, Max

and Pagani, as well as department store, Farmers. Exciting

streetwear and special items can be found in Bob Style and

Cosmic, while for the active fitness followers Stirling Sports

has a great range of active wear and shoes.

Current footwear retailers include Dowsons and Moda Bella,

with Ziera Shoes about to commence fitting out a new store.

Three of New Zealand’s most high-profile jewellery retailers,

Michael Hill, Pascoes and Silvermoon, have outlets at The Hub,

offering an extensive range of styles and prices. A new jeweller,

Glamlette, will also shortly be joining The Hub family with a

great range of contemporary and classic jewellery.

Retailers spoken to by Star Media find The Hub a great place

for doing business.

“We love being located in the heart of Hornby,” Adam Dowson

of Dowsons Shoes says.

“We have a loyal base of customers that we know well. We

focus on contemporary design from quality brands at stunning

value. Our latest winter lines, many from exclusive suppliers,

are in-store now.”

Since Cosmic opened just before Christmas 2016, manager

Robbie Brown says he has seen how much the west is growing,

and that it’s bringing a much wider range of customers to the

store.

“We have kids from Hornby High coming for their fashion stuff

right through to retirees coming to have a look.”

Robbie says he loves being in The Hub, as it has a relaxed atmosphere

and feels like a community with the other retailers.

Manager of Pascoes, Richelle Hynes-Wootton, says the mall

environment creates the important passing foot traffic, which

is “good for sales”.

“We’re doing well here. We have quite a wide range with good

price points.”

Store manager of Farmers, Chris McLachlan, says the store

offers a wide range of on-trend quality apparel and accessories

for the whole family.

“We are proud to be a fashion retailer in The Hub and will

continue to bring the latest trends to our customers each

season,” Chris says.

“Ensure you’re ready for the cooler months ahead with Farmers’

autumn/winter collection. Brace for the cold with musthave

knitwear, layering essentials including merino, or the latest

coats and jackets for the whole family.”

SCHOOL & COMMUNITY

COME TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE

CULTURAL DIVERSITY

Among the many changes and developments

continually taking place in the

south-west sector of Christchurch,

the arrival of new residents from many

different parts of the world is playing a

significant role.

Some of these new arrivals came to

provide much-needed assistance with

the city’s post-earthquake rebuild, while

others have come to find new opportunities

for themselves and their families.

Their ethnic and cultural diversity has

brought vibrancy to our neighbourhoods,

our shopping centres, our restaurant

facilities.

School rolls now boast an unprecedented

multi-cultural mix of students as the

children of immigrant families set out on

their path to learning and taking their

place in New Zealand society.

One of the area’s largest secondary

schools, Riccarton High School, has more

than 50 ethnicities represented there,

and as a celebration of the ethnic diversity

both in the school and the community

as a whole, they recently held

a Culture Fest at the school. Students,

teachers, parents and people from the

local community came together to enjoy

a variety of cultural musical and dance

performances put on by students from

Riccarton High School, Riccarton Primary

School and various cultural groups,

and sample diverse ethnic foods.

While the evening was cool and damp,

which meant the event had to be held in

the school assembly hall, it didn’t dampen

the enthusiasm of the audience, who

clapped and cheered enthusiastically for

the performers.

The idea for Culture Fest came from

Riccarton High School principal Neil

Haywood, and grew out of a Cultural

Walkthrough, an event organised last

year. For that, ethnic group leaders came

together to discuss ways to celebrate

the cultural diversity of the local area

and create a sense of belonging for new

New Zealand residents.

As a community event Culture Fest was

a collaboration between the school and

the Riccarton Public Library. The school’s

librarian Sally Blake and cultural diversity

facilitator Lulette Carney organised

the food and entertainment, and the

library, along with community groups and

organisations, set up stands to provide

information about their particular areas

of interest.

AUTHENTIC DISHES

TO PLEASE YOUR PALATE

Lincoln Road has become one of our city’s favourite food

destinations, and no wonder with the wide variety of food

establishments operating there.

One of these is Maxine’s Palace, where you will enjoy

authentic Cantonese-style dishes prepared by their experienced

Chinese chefs as you relax in the tastefully decorated

surroundings with a Chinese vintage feel.

For lunch, they offer the ever-popular Yum Char, with an

extensive selection of dim sums – those delicious morsels of

flavour you can’t get enough of.

Their all-day dinner menu includes a wide range of meat

and vegetarian dishes to suit all tastes, with one of the most

popular items on the menu being their Peking Duck

with pancake. For group dining, customers find the

lazy susan a convenient way to share the food.

Catering for functions is a specialty, with two private

dining areas available for weddings, engagement parties,

anniversaries or any family occasion.

There is also a children’s play area, so parents can enjoy their

meal knowing their children are having fun.

Since it was established in 2015, Maxine’s Palace has become

a regular dining spot for local residents, and bookings are

recommended for weekend dining.

Fully licensed and BYO wine only, Maxine’s Palace, 283 Lincoln

Rd, is open from Tuesday to Sunday.

Opening hours are 11am-2.30pm for lunch and 5pm-9.30pm

for dinner.

residential sub-divisions

contribute to area’s growth

SOUTHERN VIEW

SOUTHERN VIEW

An aerial view of the new Karamu, Riccarton

Park sub-division.

The west of Christchurch has seen an exponential increase in

residential sub-divisions over the last few years, with developers

creating new places for people to live, bring up their families,

and enjoy the benefits of moving into a brand-new home

at an affordable price.

Karamu, Riccarton Park, is a new subdivision in Upper Riccarton

being developed by Ngãi Tahu Property. It is located

next to Riccarton Racecourse, between Yaldhurst Road and

Steadman Road.

Whilst situated conveniently close to town, the developers

say, Karamu also has the added bonus of a park-like feel with a

rural outlook towards the Alps.

Manakura, the subdivision’s first neighbourhood, was released

in October 2017. Sections were in high demand and sold

quickly. It is anticipated that four further stages, with sections

of varying size and price, will be developed over the next five

years. Offering homes for every stage of life – first-home buyers,

people looking to downsize or upscale, and retirees, when

complete, Riccarton Park, will be home to around 1600 people.

With construction well underway on the first and second

releases of the Rolleston sub-division Falcon’s Landing, the

developers Gillman Wheelans have recently announced the

third release.

Falcon’s Landing is situated off Lincoln-Rolleston Road and

Branthwaite Drive, with sections ranging in size from 432sqm

to 930sqm and prices starting from $156,000.

One of a number of the company’s developments in the

Selwyn District, and comprising around 600 residentially zoned

sections, Falcon’s Landing will incorporate reserves throughout

the area, with established trees and part of a hazelnut orchard

being retained and an edible garden being established.

Rolleston has grown significantly since the Canterbury earthquakes,

and to cater for the hundreds of families living there, it

now has a secondary school, Rolleston College, and a number

of primary schools, while the commute to and from many destinations

across the district and into Christchurch is becoming

quicker with the upgraded motorways, Gillman Wheelans

director Hamish Wheelans says.

Level 1, 235 Riccarton Rd • For Reservations 03 341 5567

Quality fare

with a Kiwi twist

The Camden, a new restaurant and bar on

Riccarton Road, offers a tempting selection

of top-quality dishes described as traditional

English fare with a modern Kiwi twist.

Located upstairs at 235 Riccarton Rd, The

Camden has natural-looking décor with exposed

brickwork and a loft-like feel.

The chef, formerly head chef at Clearwater

Resort, and with experience at several other

popular restaurants, has designed a diverse

menu with breakfast, lunch and dinner items

to please every palate.

The breakfast menu features all the classic

Kiwi favourites, for lunch you could enjoy a

steak sandwich, while choices at dinner include

the Canterbury Farmed Sirloin or the house

specialty, Trio of Pork.

Desserts such as the White Chocolate Mousse

or a daily selection of Macaroons will please

the sweetest tooth.

Fully licensed, with a great range of cocktails.

The Camden is a family-friendly restaurant. It

is open from 7am every day, and bookings are

recommended. Phone 341 5567.

NEW SCHOOL

BUILDINGS ALMOST COMPLETE

Construction of the new building is due for completion by Queen’s

Birthday.

Anticipation is growing among staff and students at Hornby

High School, with the construction of the school’s new facilities

on track for practical completion by Queen’s Birthday

weekend this year, principal Robin Sutton says.

The building will then be inspected and issued with the Certificate

of Public Use.

Designed in an L-shape, the expansive building will accommodate

the science, art and technology departments, the whare,

student café and the Learning Commons area (formerly the

library) and the school’s administration.

Adjacent to this, the school’s new, much larger gymnasium is

being constructed, and will include two full-size indoor basketball

courts.

“We have to be completely out of the two remaining permanent

material classroom blocks by the end of Term 2, with

asbestos removal to be carried out over the school holidays,

prior to demolition, and we expect to move into the new

building over the last two weeks of Term 2,” Mr Sutton says.

“We have been granted permission by the Ministry of Education

to close the school for three extra days at the end of

Term 2 to allow for the move to be completed before the

holidays, with the students having supported learning at home

during those three days, but it will be a tight timeframe.”

The library and administration building had already been

vacated in 2017, with staff and students accommodated in

temporary structures on the school grounds.

Artist’s impression of the north facade

Hornby High School

Buildings that were brought on site for the Year 7 and 8 students

will be transported to the neighbouring Hornby Primary

S & T

School, as they still have many years of useful life in them, Mr

Sutton says.

The blessing of the new building by the local rununga, Te Taumutu,

will take place at the end of Term 2.

“This is an important protocol. The rununga have driven the

process and the local whanau will be invited to the ceremony,”

Mr Sutton says.

“The official opening with the Education Minister and Ministry

representatives will be held early in Term 3.

“Following the demolition of the existing buildings, construction

of the new kahui, our general learning space, will start on

the site, with completion expected by the end of 2019,” Mr

Sutton says.

VARIED PROGRAMMES PROVIDE SAFE, SECURE FUN

Parents and caregivers seeking before and

after-school care for their children can feel

confident placing them in a CASPA programee.

These varied and exciting programes are

designed to provide children with fun, engaging

and safe places to spend time before and after

school, as well as in the school holidays.

Their after-school option enables children to

get help with their homework, as well as enjoy

a nutritious afternoon tea. To help make it easy

to get there, CASPA provides a walking bus

service from some schools.

For parents needing before-school care, this is

available from 7.15am on school days, so there

is plenty of time to get organised for the day.

The CASPA School Holiday Programes are

popular with children and adults alike, and

feature a range of exciting activities such as

trips to the movies and ten-pin bowling. Art

activities keep the children occupied while encouraging

their creativity. They include painting

and clay work, cooking and making mocktails,

while sport offers everything from cricket to

skateboarding.

CASPA After School and Holiday Programmes

now incorporate the popular Papa Jacks Programe

in Rolleston, giving even more variety.

The School Holiday Programes largely focus

on the five to 13-year-old children, but there

is also a Youth Holiday Programme designed

for the 11 to 14 year-olds. And whatever their

age, children love being in the safe, relaxed and

creative environment CASPA provides.

RECIPE AND PHOTO SUPPLIED BY RECIPES.CO.NZ

ON TOP OF

SPAGHETTI

Mince is a favourite in Kiwi kitchens and this

recipe could well be your new go to – especially

as the weather cools down. Get the kids

involved to help roll the meatballs and you

will have dinner served in no time – but don’t

expect leftovers.

INGREDIENTS:

500g Quality Mark beef mince

1 small red onion, very finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

2 tablespoons finely chopped flat leaf parsley

leaves

1/2 cup fresh white breadcrumbs

1/4 cup seasoned flour

1 cup vegetable stock

400g can cherry tomatoes in juice, drained

TO SERVE:

400g dried spaghetti, cooked until al dente

4 good handfuls spinach, wilted

METHOD:

In a large bowl combine the beef mince, onion,

garlic, coriander, cumin, chilli, chopped parsley

and the breadcrumbs. Season with a little salt.

(It is a good idea to fry off a small piece of the

beef mince mixture and taste for seasoning).

Roll the beef mince mixture into about 24

small balls. Place the seasoned flour on a large

flat plate. Roll beef mince balls in the seasoned

flour.

Heat a dash of oil in a large frying pan and

brown the meatballs, in batches, transferring

to a plate as you go.

Wipe out the frying pan with kitchen paper

and return the meatballs. Pour in the stock

and cherry tomatoes and cover with a lid.

Place over low heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

TO SERVE:

Serve hot meatballs with cooked spaghetti and

wilted spinach.

CLUB’S FACILITIES

OFFER SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Whatever you are looking for in the way of live entertainment,

relaxed dining, a quiet drink with friends, or sport and recreation

activities, the Hornby Workingmen’s Club has it all.

The modern complex in Carmen Road offers several dining

and bar areas, including the Club Café, which is open seven

days a week for lunch and dinner, and the Chalmers Restaurant,

which provides both buffet and à la carte dining on Friday,

Saturday and Sunday nights, and Sunday lunch from 12pm-2pm.

and the main bar has several TV screens, including a big

screen, where they can see their favourite team in action, as

they relax with friends and family. The club’s shuttle service offers

a pick-up and drop-off service seven days a week.

Live music at the weekends provides a great variety of

entertainment and is always very popular, while the wideranging

sport and recreation pursuits available include billiards,

snooker and pool, cards, darts, table tennis, indoor and

outdoor bowls, cricket, fishing, and travel. All these are run as

separate clubs, with members welcome to join as many as they

like. There are also 18 gaming machines and a TAB onsite for

those who enjoy a ‘flutter’.

General manager Paul Inwood says the club is really a “community

within a community” in Hornby, and its members come

not only from Hornby, but also from right around the Canterbury

region. Members are from a wide range of age groups,

from young families through to retirees, and from many different

backgrounds, he says.

PAMPERING DAY FOR

UNSUNG HEROINES

OF HORNBY RUGBY

LEAGUE

While the players are the ones

that usually get all the attention,

it’s the people behind the scenes

that keep everything running

smoothly and are really the “backbone

of the club”, says Hornby

Rugby League president Brent

Tomlinson.

“It’s the mothers, the wives, the

partners of the players, who do

everything from managing, to

registering the junior players,

washing gear, providing refreshments,

cleaning up, and supporting

the players.

“Hornby Rugby League has

around 220 juniors and over 180

senior players, and that’s a lot of

people to organise,” Brent says.

So on May 12, the Saturday before

Mother’s Day, the club is holding

a celebration of these unsung

heroines, with ‘Women in League’

(WIL) day.

The Panthers will be playing the

Celebration Lions.

“We have had a special strip made

for the premier team to wear

for that match – it’s a very bright

fuchsia pink, and a bit like a super

hero’s outfit,” Brent says.

“The boys are wearing it to show

their support and appreciation for

the Panther Ladies – it was a bit

of a coup to get them to wear the

pink strip.

“The ladies will be pampered for

the day and the boys will step up

and do the hard yards that the

ladies normally do every week.”

Similar events are run in Australia

with the NRL, Brent says. Canterbury

Rugby League is on board

with the Hornby event and has

given permission for the team to

play in the special strip.

After being unable to use Leslie

Park for the whole of the 2017

season while it was being upgraded

by the Christchurch City

Council, Hornby played their first

matches of the 2018 season on

April 7 at their home ground.

Club volunteers have also completely

renovated the clubrooms

in time for the season.

“Simply purchase a reloadable key for $3, load it with

whatever value you choose and clip it on your key ring,

ready to use whenever you like.”

Sarah says all services at Liquid Self Service Laundromat

are very affordable - with washing from $4 and dryers

from $4 for 25 minutes which will dry up to three loads of

washing.

“Plus, by doing all your washing away from home you can

lower your monthly electricity bills substantially.”

The eco-friendly washing machines come in 8kg, 18kg and

28kg sizes - with the large washers ideal for bulky, heavy

duty items like feather duvets, mink blankets, sports gear

and curtains.

“The large and extra-large washers and dryers are ideal for

families and mothers to save time as they can do all their

washing and drying for a week in about one hour saving

water and energy.”

There are 8 Liquid Self Service Laundromat sites within the

Christchurch area – Hornby, Woolston, Burwood, Sydenham,

Richmond, Rangiora, Hoon Hay and Aranui.

Sites are open from 5am-11pm daily – “and all you need to

Smart keys can be used at any of the over 50 Liquid Self

NEW PROJECT TO PROVIDE

MORE SOCIAL HOUSING IN HORNBY

Artist’s impression of the new build in Lesley Keast Place

Over the next few months, Housing Plus Charitable Foundation

is establishing a housing project in Lesley Keast Place,

Hornby alongside four other not-for-profit entities.

The foundation’s new build, which is a steel fame construction,

comprises eight duplex units housing two tenants each, and

three two-bedroom cottages set in landscaped grounds.

The eight duplex units belong to Housing Plus, while the three

cottage units will be owned and managed by the Methodist

Mission in conjunction with Housing Plus. They will be ready

for tenanting in July.

Housing Plus is a new trust arising out of work undertaken

by the Beckenham Community Housing Trust (BCHT), which

oversees a project at Lancewood Courts in Beckenham.

The model, which was developed in partnership with the

Christchurch City Council, has been operating for over 16

years and has proved successful in housing people that benefit

from being in a secure environment with low-level support, but

do not require 24-hour care.

“These are people who often fall through the cracks of good

housing provision and because of relative poverty and other

issues can end up in very poor, unsatisfactory housing in unsafe

environments,” Housing Plus spokesperson Margaret Willis

says.

“The combination of high-quality housing, independent living

arrangements and low-level, on-site support at Lancewood

Courts has provided a safe and solid base for tenants, who are

then freer to attend to other issues in their lives.”

Residents’ comments from the latest external report on the

project reflect this, she says. They include:

“It feels like my home. Like a sanctuary from the outside

world.”

“I came here depressed and discouraged and isolated. I was

totally alone – not now…I love to come back here. You can be

yourself.”

“I am much happier here. No one hassles you. It’s peaceful and

quiet… I feel privileged to be here.”

Ms Willis says tenants often move into some form of voluntary

or part-time work.

“We have seen outcomes including reduction in the use of

medication and significant improvement in general wellbeing,”

Ms Willis says.

“Housing Plus is looking forward to establishing the Hornby

development as a place where people can feel safe, belong and

develop a sense of home and wellbeing.”

DIGITAL PLATFORM

TRANSFORMING TEACHING & LEARNING

Introduced in 2014 at seven schools in south-west Christchurch,

an innovative learning initiative is proving “profoundly

successful in accelerating students’ learning”, Hornby High

School principal Robin Sutton says.

Hornby High is one of the seven schools involved in the

programme, which is known as Manaiakalani, the others are

Hornby Primary School, Yaldhurst Model School, Gilberthorpe

School, St Bernadette’s School, South Hornby School, and

Wigram Primary School (formerly Sockburn School). Together

they form the Uru Mãnuka cluster of Manaiakalani, a Hawaiian

word that means “hook from heaven”.

Wanting to improve their students’ learning outcomes,

husband and wife team Russell and Dorothy Burt, currently

co-principals of Auckland’s Point England school, developed

the programme 10 years ago, with the Manaiakalani Education

Trust being set up to fund it. Since then the trust has raised

over $16 million.

The Uru Manuka cluster of schools was the first in Christchurch

to work with the Manaiakalani Education Trust Outreach

programme, which provides a digital teacher to work in

each of the seven schools every week – years 7-10 at Hornby

High and years 4, 5 and 6 at the primary schools.

As Hornby Primary School principal Gary Roberts explains,

the digital teacher works in classes that are using a one-to-one

digital device, giving teachers the skills to deliver the curriculum

on a digital platform.

“This has transformed the teaching and learning practice,” he

says.

“We wanted to reduce the digital divide and accelerate

student achievement to raise National Standard levels throughout

the cluster. Since the introduction of Manaiakalani we are

achieving both goals.”

Mr Sutton says students’ writing has improved at double the

rate of the national average and their reading and maths one

and a half times the average.

“With Manaiakalani we have seen a significant improvement in

student engagement at Hornby High,” he says. “The vision is

for the school to be a centre of creative excellence.”

Mr Roberts says with teachers implementing the curriculum

through the digital platform, “it creates motivated, engaged

learners – it’s cutting edge”.

The schools use Chromebooks for their digital learning, as all

the web-based applications are free through Google Chrome,

NEW SCHOOL A HIT

WITH STUDENTS

& COMMUNITY

he says.

“We have a relationship with computer supplier

Cyclone, who have arranged a package

deal for all seven schools, enabling parents to

pay off the devices over three years, if they

need to. At this stage, 75-80 per cent of the

devices at our school are student-owned. The

others are supplied by the school.”

Both principals say one of the most important

elements of the digital platform is the ability

it gives students to write their own blogs and

share their work with each other and with

family and friends, which Mr Sutton describes

as “learning made visible”.

Mr Roberts says they can “upload their work

and share it with a worldwide audience”.

“They couldn’t do that without the technology.

That’s one of the cool things about the Uru

Manuka cluster.”

With Manaiakalani Education Trust funding

coming to an the end, a new trust for Uru

Manuka has been set up in Christchurch

to continue funding the programme, which

requires $150,000 a year to run. The trustees

are former Christchurch mayor Garry Moore,

Janine Morrell-Gunn, manager of The Hub

Jason Marsden, and Rose Crossland.

Since moving into brand-new buildings on the

former Branston Intermediate site in Hornby,

everyone has settled in really well, South

Hornby School principal Simon Moriarty says.

“The children and the community are loving

the new environment. The classrooms have all

been purpose-built to meet the learning needs

of all our students,” he says.

“The outdoor area links with the indoor and

there is additional space in the playground,

which also includes a scooter track. It’s very

important to have that balance between learning

and the kids having fun.”

The last step in the move to the new site will

be completing the upgrade to the existing

school pool, Mr Moriarty says.

“That’s the second stage of the project and

the pool should be ready for the start of the

2018/19 season.”

The main focus for Term 2 at South Hornby

Primary will be the celebration of Matariki,

towards the end of the term.

“We have worked alongside the local rununga,

Te Taumutu, and they have gifted our school

with the name Te Manu Tukutuku, which translates

as kite. This has historical significance to

Maori in the local area, and we have named

our classrooms with the Maori names of the

four prevailing winds in Canterbury, which ties

in with the cultural narrative.”

School rolls in the western suburbs are in

a period of growth, and with the enrolment

zones, it means that children living in the

South Hornby area will have a place at South

Hornby School, Mr Moriarty says.

Create authentic Italian

dishes with locally

made fresh pasta

Anyone that enjoys cooking Italian food knows fresh pasta is the only way to go

to achieve that authentic flavour and texture.

Residents in the western suburbs are fortunate to have a fresh pasta producer

right on their doorstep – Pasta Vera. The business was founded 17 years

ago by New Zealander Phil Bennett, a baker by trade, who had fallen

in love with Italy and its cuisine after travelling around the country

and experiencing the Italian food culture.

On his return home he set up Pasta Vera, initially wholesaling to local

Christchurch restaurants.

As the business grew, Phil and his wife and business partner Linda

developed the product range from simple fettuccine and ravioli to include

many other types of pasta such as cannelloni and gnocchi as well as pesto and

pasta sauces.

Recently they expanded their business further with the opening of their new,

custom-built factory in Wigram Road, Sockburn, which includes a factory shop

offering the full range of fresh pasta and other authentic Italian food items so

you can create delicious Italian meals at home.

For those days when you are short of time and need a quick, tasty meal for the

family, or you have unexpected guests, they offer re-heat and serve meals. These

include the very popular baked lasagne, which is available as a single serve meal

or as a catering tray for groups – ideal for family occasions.

Other items regularly available include end-of-lines, samples and

special restaurant samples at discount prices.

The Pasta Vera Factory Shop is located on the corner of Wigram

Road and Musgrove Close. With plenty of off-street parking

available, it’s quick and convenient to pop in and pick up your

fresh pasta and sauce or ready-made meals.

Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 8.30am-5pm with a

late night Thursday until 6pm, and Saturday 9am-1pm.

TOP TASKS

IN THE GARDEN

Kiwi Gardener magazine highlights

what to prioritise in the garden now.

BY RACHEL VOGAN

Autumn is my favourite season of the year. With the cooler nights and warm days, it ticks the box for me. It is also a wonderful

time to get trees and shrubs planted out in the garden, and garden centres and plant stockists have amazing sales on – so it has

the bonus of being probably the most affordable time of year to invest in your garden, too.

Always bear in mind that plants will grow. While it looks better to plant a few extras to make the area look fuller, in a season or

two those small plants will more than likely to have doubled – if not tripled – in size. So, use restraint and, if need be, use a tape

measure to avoid hours of trimming in years to come.

INDOOR PLANTS

Globally, indoor plants are experiencing a resurgence in

popularity. A light switch has been turned on and people have

remembered that indoor plants not only liven and brighten up

an indoor space, but clean the air at the same time. Well-placed

indoor plants and greenery create a more relaxing, restful

ambience in any room and, as the colder months come closer,

bring the outdoors in beside you. Baby indoor plants are exceptional

value, as you can buy a couple for less than the cost

of a decent coffee, however, if instant gratification is more your

style, go for the big boys.

PERENNIALS

Lift and divide perennials while they are still above the ground

– before they go into hibernation. The best way to do this is

to lay a tarp or old curtain on the lawn or in the garden and

dig the entire plant out of the ground, remove any dead or

unhealthy looking segments, then divide it into sections and

replant. If you cut off sections of the plant while it is in the

ground you can cause damage to the plant without knowing it.

Good plants to divide now are hostas, ligularia, red hot poker,

delphiniums, alstroemeria, lady’s mantle, and astrantia. Hold doing

this for your dahlias for another month – you may as well

enjoy the blooms for a bit longer.

VEGETABLES

This month can be tricky in the vegetable patch. Some crops, such as

tomatoes and cucumbers, are still hanging on and producing and, whilst

this isn’t a bad thing, they are taking up valuable space that may be

required for autumn and winter crops. If you need the room, at some

point you might just have to be ruthless.

Loads of seedlings can go in this month, but not before the soil has had

a makeover. It is especially important to add nutrients and compost

now leading into winter. Plant out bok choy, celery, beetroot, salad

greens, kale and rocket. Sow broad bean seeds at some point this

month, too. This can be done directly into the ground, but if you don’t

have room in the garden – or if it’s simply easier – sow into punnets.

DIVERSION ROAD TO ALLOW

FOR MOTORWAY IMPROVEMENTS

The Christchurch Southern

Motorway Stage 2 (CSM2) project

being carried out by NZ Transport

Agency (NZTA) will see a diversion

road in place for approximately

18 months.

As from April 27, traffic travelling

on the Christchurch Southern

Motorway will be switched onto

the new temporary diversion

road. (See map.) Traffic changes

will be staged over a two-week

period to allow for this.

The diversion road will be in

place until the new Halswell

Junction interchange is ready to

take traffic, estimated to be in

late 2019, and is to allow the NZ

Transport Agency to improve

the safety and alignment of the

Christchurch Southern Corridor.

The CSM2 project is making Main

South Road (SH1,) from near

Rolleston to Robinsons Rd four

lane, and building a new section of

motorway through greenfields to

connect with the first stage of the

Christchurch Southern Motorway

at Halswell Junction Road.

The project will mean that

residents and businesses in the

Selwyn District (such as the Izone

industrial park, and Rolleston)

will have improved access to the

Christchurch CBD, key employment

centres and Lyttelton Port.

It is expected to reduce fatal and

serious crashes by 40 per cent

and significantly reduce travel time

between Rolleston and Christchurch.

The project will also provide

better access in and out of

Christchurch and this will in turn

improve the economic well-being

of the Canterbury region and the

wider South Island, NZTA says.

The project will also include a

cycle/pedestrian-shared path

linking the Christchurch Southern

Motorway Stage 1 cycle/pedestrian

shared path with the existing

Little River Rail Trail.

Traffic moving onto the new section

of motorway will reduce the

number of vehicles on Main South

Rd through Templeton and on

other local roads making it safer

for communities, including cyclists

and pedestrians around the communities

of Templeton, Hornby

and Prebbleton.

Costing $195 million, the project

is designed by Aecom and is being

constructed by the Downer Mc-

Connell Dowell Joint Venture.

DOES LITTLE WRONG

Price – Kia Rio Limited, $26,990

Dimensions – Length, 4065mm; width, 1725mm; height, 1450mm

Configuration – Four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive, 1368cc, 74kW, 133Nm, six-speed automatic

Performance – 0-100km/h, 11.5sec

Fuel usage – 6.2l/100km

BY ROSS KIDDIE

You know the new car market is undergoing substantial change

when it’s likely New Zealand Police officers will be seen driving

South Korean-built cars.

I’m not saying that is a good or a bad thing, but the reality is

that Kia has supplied some of its very desirable Stinger to law

enforcement. The reason being is that the Stinger is a large,

powerful, rear-wheel-drive sedan which will complement

Holden’s Commodore, so long a part of our police operation.

As we all know, production of the Australian-built Commodore

has ended, the new car to wear that nameplate is sourced

from Europe. It’s fair to say the new Commodore will also be

contracted by the police, but it’s good to see other brands also

fitting into the equation.

From what I’ve heard, the Stinger is a pretty smart piece

of kit in both four-cylinder and V6 form; I’ll have to reserve

judgement on it until I get to drive it, but in the interim, a car

from the bottom end of the Kia stable is the subject of this

evaluation – the Rio.

I first drove the entry-level manual and I related to its easyto-drive

nature, value and quality build. This evaluation focuses

on the range-topping Limited and, as opposed to the manual

variant, the Limited is available only as an automatic, a fourspeeder.

The engine is the same, the 1.4-litre unit is rated at 74kW and

133Nm, both realistic outputs for its displacement. It’s a freerevving

engine which is quiet and responsive, but it does work

hard against the limitation of just four gears, there’s a couple

of points in the engine’s delivery where it takes time to find its

breath, working against the tall gearing.

That’s no surprise, the reason why we have gearboxes with far

more ratios is to alleviate those gaps, but in fairness, the Rio’s

driveline does a fairly good job in most circumstances. It also

has the benefit of healthy fuel usage statistics. Kia also claims

a 6.2-litre per 100km/h (45mpg) combined cycle average for

the automatic Rio, which sits well with the 7.6l/100km (37mpg)

figure constantly showing on the dash panel readout, along

with a 5l/100km (56mpg) instantaneous figure cruising the

100km/h legal limit (engine speed 2500rpm).

Together, all of these figures combine to produce reasonable

performance and great economy. In terms of acceleration,

the Rio automatic will cut out a standstill to 100km/h time of

11.2sec and will complete an overtaking manoeuvre (80km/h-

100km/h) in 7sec.

The Rio cruises the highway quietly and has a smooth,

comfortable ride. The spring and damper rates are set quite

soft and that can be felt in a corner, there is noticeable body

movement. More so in the rear where the limitations of a tube

beam axle are apparent, there is little rear-wheel freedom.

Up front it’s a different story, the steering is pin-sharp and

has perfect feel, there is a lot of feedback through high-quality

Continental tyres (205/45 x 17in). Their profile leans towards a

sporty feel and that is something I particularly like.

The Rio in this form also gets a sequential shifting device at the

main gearshift lever, it’s useful for downshifting when entering

a corner and for the odd time when a shift away from the

normal shifting pattern is required.

At $26,990 the Rio range-topper is reasonable value, it gets

a fair hunk of the kit as you’d expect from a car that wears

a Limited badge. Sadly, the leather-trimmed seats don’t get

heaters, which is most uninviting on a cold Christchurch

morning, but there are other inclusions that add to the value

aspect such as satellite navigation that appears through a

large central screen, it is also home to the infotainment and

communication systems.

Personally, I’d be opting for the entry-level Rio, it’s available in

both manual or automatic forms. It doesn’t miss out on much,

and in manual form the six gears allow the engine to work

more akin to its power outputs. At $22,490 and $23,490 the

LX also represents an easy passage into the brand. Take into

account there’s also an EX model at $25,490.

What Kia has served to prove in recent years is that it is a

progressive company not short on introducing interesting and

popular models throughout its global markets, all landing with

a relatively realistic pricing structure.

While I’m looking forward to a drive in the Stinger soon, it

must be remembered that it’s bread and butter cars such as

the Rio which steady the brand here, it’s a desirable, downto-earth

hatchback that does little wrong and pleases with its

styling and ability to put the driver at ease.

Kirsty Stewart, Christine Gilliver, Shaunice Ross

EXPANDED

SPACE & NEW

STAFF

AT HORNBY TRAVEL

BUSINESS

It’s exciting times at House of Travel Hornby with their expansion

into the adjacent premises previously occupied by Café

Carmen.

“The café, which had sublet from us, has moved across to the

GAS Station just on the other side of the road,” House of

Travel Hornby owner Paula Waldeck says, “so we are pushing

through the wall to make our offices bigger.”

This has also seen the House of Travel Hornby team expand

to seven, with new consultants Maddie Bhingarkar and Brittany

Sergeant coming on board.

“We’ve come a long way from three and a half years ago when

we started out with just three staff. It’s very exciting for us,”

Paula says.

There has also been a big start to the travel year for House of

Travel Hornby customers, with people travelling all over the

world, and cruising proving particularly popular.

“Cruising allows people to go to new and interesting locations,

for example Kirsty Stewart, one of our staff members, has just

been on a cruise through the South China Sea including the

Southern Japanese islands,” Paula says.

“We can book cruises to destinations that, which would be

hard for people to get to otherwise.”

While the South Pacific remains the most popular area for

cruises, the Mediterranean, and places in Northern Europe like

Scandinavia, Russia and the Baltic States provide other exciting

options, with passengers able to visit many hard-to-reach

places on the one trip, Paula says.

Flying from New Zealand has never been cheaper, she says,

with some great deals available to many destinations including

Europe, USA, Asia and Africa.

“We can customise itineraries to suit every traveller. This might

include a guided journey around a particular region or hiring a

car and getting out and exploring on your own.

“Flying to the South Pacific for a short mid-winter break is always

a popular choice with Cantabrians, especially with winter

getting closer. We now have direct flights from Christchurch

to Fiji and Rarotonga, making it even quicker and easier to get

there.

“At House of Travel Hornby, we can design holidays to suit all

types of travellers, budgets and preferences. The best holidays

really are created together,” Paula says.

House of Travel Hornby is located at 40 Carmen Road, with

easy parking right outside the door, so call in soon and start

planning your next overseas holiday with one of their friendly

and knowledgeable consultants.

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

He made my teeth look

so natural, real, and a

little bit aged, not like the

sparkly white dentures

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

into line.”
