from the reporter’s desk

IT’S A win for small businesses on Cranford St.

Those located north of McFaddens Rd will not lose their onstreet

parking to cycleways.

City council informed businesses and residents last year of

new plans which would see cycleways replace on-street parking

as part of the Northern Arterial development.

However, business owners fought tooth and nail in the consultation

process, and now the city council has listened.

Small World Preschool and Nursery owner Keith Wayman

said it is good news, as he once feared his business may have to

shut its doors if its on-street parking was lost.

The backing of Fletcher Construction, which owns Cranford

St businesses PlaceMakers and Mico Plumbing, may have played

some role in the decision.

the opportunity at the opening of the

Cranford St businesses won’t lose parks

Relief as

plan for

amended

• By Sophie Cornish

CRANFORD ST businesses

owners are relieved the city

council will not remove their

on-street parking as part of the

Northern Arterial plans.

The city council indicated

last year cycleways could take

up on-street parking on a small

stretch of Cranford St north of

McFaddens Rd.

But the design will no longer

go ahead after the city council

said consultation with businesses

saw the plans amended.

Small World Preschool and

Nursery owner Keith Wayman

feared they would have to shut

their doors if designs went

ahead.

But now he is relieved.

“What we are hearing is good

news, we are pleased . . . and very

comfortable with where we are

at.”

RESULT: Small businesses owners Andrew Norton and Sue and Keith Wayman are pleased

city council has decided to change the plan for Cranford St which would have seen their

on-street parking lost to cycleways.

Small World Preschool was

supported by construction

firm Fletcher Building, which

owns PlaceMakers and Mico

Plumbing on Cranford St, in its

battle against the plans.

However, Mr Wayman said

the issue is still “a little up in the

air” as the plans are only drafts

at this stage and there are still

“processes to work through”,

which involves consultation

with residents. City council

manager planning and delivery

transport Lynette Ellis said: “The

Christchurch Northern Corridor

Alliance amended the design

plans to include parking for this

section of Cranford St.”

Ms Ellis said the plans will be

discussed further with affected

businesses and residents soon

and then a report will go to city

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

OUR “EYE’ VET…..

Its not often I write about my husband,

Steve Heap, but I must say I’m often

very proud of the work he does at our

Practice, and how he is always looking

ahead to grow, improve and provide the

best workplace for our staff. Steve has a

keen interest in all things involving “eyes”

but he’s also very competent at dental

surgery too. Patients come far and wide

to see Steve for his expert advice on eyes

and compassionate, friendly service. He

sees a myriad of animals,

ranging from very expensive

thoroughbreds and alpacas,

to lions and kiwis at Orana

park and then all domestic

animals inbetween.

Steve decided to study

Ophthalmology while

we were in the UK in our

20’s on a working/holiday

and it is one of the best

specialities Steve could

have chosen. Not only does

Steve really enjoy eyes, but

it has helped to grow our

business and stand it apart from others.

There are currently only 3 or 4 vets seeing

ophthalmology referrals in NZL.

Most days Steve has 3-6 Ophthalmology

surgeries. He actually gets excited at the

prospect of returning an eye to normal

function and pain free.

A few days ago was one of those “jubilant”

moments. In waltzed a very friendly 8

year old Labrador called “Arnie”. Arnie was

referred to Steve with a persistent infected

discharge coming from his Left eye that

he had for 8 months. Eight months ago he

had an ulcer in the same eye which initially

cleared up, but quickly became constantly

infected, weepy, red and sore. He had been

on every eye ointment possible with no

real results. The owners claimed they were

cleaning the eye out 5 times a day. The

purulent discharge seemed to be coming

from the lower

tear ducts.

Steve suspected

a foreign

body so he

recommended

anaesthetizing

Arnie and

taking a closer

look.

Sure enough

Steve removed

a large barley

grass awn from

the left tear

duct by cutting

down into the duct. It had probably been

sitting there for the past 8 months causing a

chronic persistent eye infection. Steve is sure

Arnie will make a full recovery with no need

for eye drops. As a surgeon moments like

these are hugely rewarding because straight

away Steve has made a big difference to

Arnies quality of life….and his

owners.

Clients and vets alike speak

highly of Steve. His sole

purpose is to solve problems

quickly and professionally,

with skill and expertise and he

is great at explaining things

clearly and simply, so clients

really “get” what his plan is for

their pet. Clients apparently

love his scribbley little eye

diagrams they leave with, diagrammatically

describing the surgical procedure. I recently

attended a veterinary meeting and felt

very proud at all the accolades my fellow

colleagues spoke about my husband. Steve

is one of the very few vets around who

freely, 24/7 gives ophthalmology advice to

any vet in the country free of charge. He just

enjoys sharing his knowledge to benefit all

animals in need.

We are currently in the throes of building

a large, modern addition to adjoin our

current premises in Hoon Hay. We are very

excited about what this will mean for us

and our patients in the future. We hope

to be seen as a referral centre, with more

specialists vets coming on board, as well

as a first opinion clinic. We have very loyal,

committed clients who often recommend

us to others. We want to improve our level

of knowledge and expertise and provide

better care by creating

separate dog and cat

treatment , consult and

waiting areas. We are

constantly looking ahead

to the future and trying

to set ourselves up to

stand alone, offering

outstanding care, service

and communication in an

ever increasing corporate

veterinary world, one

in which we will never

become part of.

Steve and I are living

the dream. What could

be better than surrounding ourselves with

animals all day, solving problems using our

skill and expertise, making people smile

again and saving animals lives. It just doesn’t

get much better than that.

Edgeware village plans shelved

Businesses

feared more

PLANS TO close off the

Edgeware Rd end of Colombo

the area more people-friendly

and easily closed for markets and

events.

However, community board

chairwoman Ali Jones said

there were concerns about the

impact of the proposal on village

businesses.

“The area has already suffered

considerable disruption from

roadway and drainage work and

from the construction of the

Papanui Parallel cycleway,’’ she

said.

“We are also conscious of the

fact there are several projects due

for completion in the coming

years that may change the way

people use the area, such as the

Edgeware Pool development and

the new St Albans Community

Centre.”

St Albans Pharmacy owner

and Edgeware Business

Association chairman, Malcolm

Pearce, did not back the plan

and is relieved to hear it won’t be

going ahead.

“The businesses here didn’t

think it was a good idea to

restrict access to the village and,

given all the disruption we have

had over the past few years, it’s

not good timing. It’s best to

put it on hold and look at other

mutually beneficial beautification

projects.”

FreshChoice Edgeware owner

Stephen Anderson is also pleased

with the outcome.

“I think we can achieve a

similar result in a different way.”

“They (city council) obviously

have listened to us, taken that on

board, which is very good. We

have had some major disruption

here . . . we would like to get back

to normality.”

Ms Jones said the board

has asked the project team to

come up with ideas for costeffective

minor streetscape

improvements which could

enhance the area and be

completed with minimal impact

on the businesses.

“This again is in response to

feedback from those consulted,’’

said Ms Jones.

Mairehau counsellor’s books

help children worldwide

• By Sophie Cornish

A COUNSELLOR from

Mairehau Primary School is

attempting to improve the lives

of people involved in child

trafficking by creating and

selling her own books.

Sue Dickson created Books For

Hope in 2016 after writing her

first book in

2015.

Since

then, she

has written

four books,

donated

money to

several

charities and

received a

message from the Pope.

“I am really passionate about

children and I wanted to be able

to give to charities which help

children who are less fortunate,

especially those who are

involved with things like child

trafficking,” she said. The books,

titled Wisdom, Inner Peace, The

Little Prayer Book and Power of

the Heart, support New Zealand

based non-profit organisations,

Tent Peg Missions, Hagar New

Zealand, LIFT International and

Tearfund’s work combatting

human trafficking and

exploitation.

“Each book that I’ve written,

50 per cent of the profits go to

charity and each book has a

different charity.”

So far she has raised more

than $600. Tent Peg Missions

helps children in Uganda, and

the money Ms Dickson has

raised has gone towards supplies

at a school for children with

disabilities. Hagar New Zealand

works to rehabilitate children

who have been rescued from

child trafficking.

“That’s the goal. Hopefully I

received a thank you letter.

“His holiness Pope Francis

VOLUNTEERING IS now

Margaret Cone who has clocked

up 10 years of service at the

Community Energy Action

curtain bank.

Back in 2008, Miss Cone got

Initially the curtain bank was

for sick babies and the elderly,

and this appealed to Miss Cone

who liked helping the groups.

The afternoon shift also fits in

with her lifestyle.

Miss Cone appeared on

TVNZ’s Good Sorts programme

in 2016 and volunteers her time

to other charities, such as Red

Cross’ Meals on Wheels, Driving

for the Blind and Multiple Sclerosis

The idea of recycling and reusing

things as well as the social

contact with people is what has

kept Miss Cone coming back.

“It’s a healthy thing for the

body, as it involves quite a lot of

fitness.”

The work requires folding,

bagging and stacking the heavy

curtains.

growth in the north of Christchurch

and the need for city

council staff to identify suitable

sites for potential community

facilities.”

Belfast is now home to about

7600 residents – and this number

is predicted to double by

2041 to about 15,000. The board

hopes city council will explore

partnership opportunities and

notes that there a new school is

planned for Belfast.

Langdon connection to Papanui

Papanui Heritage

Group chairman Murray

Williams writes about the

development of Langdons

Rd which is the second part

of last month’s column

THOMAS LANGDON died in

1904 and, at this time, the blind

street named after him was little

more than a sleepy rural track

flanked by a few houses.

However, over the next 115

years Langdons Rd has been

notable for continually changing

land use patterns.

In 1911, a group of enterprising

citizens purchased a block of

land on Langdons Rd between

North Rd and Restell St. The

Papanui bowling, tennis and

croquet club was formed and it

prevailed until the late 1960s on

a site now dominated by retail

outlets.

In 1926, the Education Department

acquired 6.2ha of agricultural

land fronting on Langdons

Rd alongside the northern

railway. However, it took the

government another 10 years

to approve, plan and complete

the school first known as the

Papanui branch of the Christchurch

Technical College.

In 1953, the school became Papanui

High School to acknowledge

its change to a modern

multi-course high school.

In 1948, the American Firestone

Tire and Rubber Company

purchased and developed a block

of orcharding land to the northwest

of the railway and eventually

became Papanui’s largest

employer.

On the opposite side of the

street, Sanitarium, with an even

longer history in the area, was

also a major employer, although

it is now undergoing a phased

withdrawal from Papanui.

Currently, the former Firestone

site is undergoing a further

change in land use, as some of

the industrial buildings have

been demolished to allow for the

development of the Northfield

Business Park, which includes

new facilities for a range of

enterprises, such as a pre-school,

a gym and the Trade Union

Centre.

Prior to this in 2001, further

to the north, Langstone Lane

was developed as a site for warehouses.

However, the northern end of

Langdons Rd is still dominated

by residential properties, many

of which were built as part of an

extensive government housing

project in the early and mid-

1950s.

Other forms of land use included

the development of a corner

site on the Main North Rd by

the local branch of the RSA.

After World War 1, surplus

army buildings were combined

into one structure and in the

mid-1940s a new art deco façade

ARCHIVES

was added as part of a general

refurbishment. Eventually this

building was demolished and,

since 1995, the Westpac Bank

has occupied the site.

The Papanui Library and

Community Service Centre

on the corner of Restell St was

established in 1995. However, the

dominant feature of the southern

end of Langdons Road is the

Northlands Shopping Centre. Its

growth continues today with the

provision of further restaurant

and bar facilities, a development

which is to be named Langdons

Quarter, a further connection to

Thomas Langdon and the street

to which he gave his name.

Men

“The question of the power of men has been very topical

in the past year with changes in political leadership,

#MeToo and other associated movements. In images

used in the media of significant male politicians or male

professional leaders these men more often than not

wear a suit albeit maybe without a tie these days. The

suits these men wear convey power. Do these men wear

suits because they are a symbol of power? Do corporate

woman feel they have to emulate men in the way they

dress to achieve power? Why in fact is there such a

historical difference in the clothes of men and woman?

Do men have an advantage in society because there

exists this type of uniform that gives them an unspoken

air of authority that there is not something equivalent of

for woman?

The history of menswear suits, over-coats, trousers,

shirts and ties can be traced back several centuries

and remain very traditional and recognisable in the 21st

century. The shape of the lapel, the size of the tie, the

quality of the material and the way they are produced

may have changed but the form and its associations are

immediately identifiable. Sombre colours of greys and

black suits still dominate. These suits are trans-seasonal.

It is a code of dress that is universally recognisable. By its

continued widespread use it isn’t likely to change. These

suits are not necessarily worn for comfort so are they

still in such dominant use because of the symbols they

convey?

Here seventy men are dressed in traditional suits then

they deviate playing with shape and form, eccentricity,

personality and individualism also drawing at times on

more feminine influences of colour and pattern. It is an

unresolved exploration of menswear and its implications

in contemporary society.” Gill Hay.

Gill attended Canterbury University School of Fine Arts

in the early 1980s and has been exhibiting widely in New

Zealand and overseas for the past 20 years. She lives in

Lyttelton where she has a studio in her home overlooking

the inner harbour.

Call for community facility grows

Fire rages, homes at risk

Joanna Gould

is pushing

for a new

community

facility at 10

Shirley Rd and

puts forward

some of her

ideas for the site

I ATTENDED an antenatal class

at the Shirley Community Centre

11 years ago and have been a

local Shirley resident for the past

10 years.

I have a passion for research,

learning and community spaces.

The former Shirley Community

Centre at 10 Shirley Rd was

an iconic focal point of our

community since 1915. It was

originally Shirley Primary

School, and later on our Shirley

Community Centre, a place

for cultural, educational and

recreational activities.

It was seriously damaged in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

and was demolished in 2012.

Since the earthquakes, our

community has been struggling

DAMAGED: The former Shirley Community Centre site before it

was demolished in 2012.

to get our homes repaired and

rebuilt. Two primary schools

have closed, our roads are still

damaged, there are detours and

closures in place, and sucker

trucks run throughout the night

due to sewer system failures

when it rains.

The Dudley Creek flood remediation

is overdue by a year, and

the ‘temporary depot/storage

yard’ sites at 10 Shirley Rd and

40 Guild St are having a negative

impact on residents lives.

Recently we learnt that the new

QE II campus, built to relocate

Avonside Girls’ and Shirley

Boys’ High Schools, may change

‘our school’ zones, which will

deny our children access to ‘our

schools’.

And now, after years of waiting

for the rebuild to start for

our community centre, we have

been dealt another blow. We find

out that the funding granted

by the city council has not been

included in the draft Long Term

Plan.

The 10 Shirley Rd site is a constant

visual reminder to me, and

the locals/road users of Shirley

Rd, that our community has been

left behind; we haven’t rebuilt

from the earthquakes.

What message are we sending

to the children at Shirley Primary

School and the children from

other schools that travel past this

area?

That it’s okay to treat your

community spaces like this?

Do our children matter to the

city council? Are they not future

Christchurch ratepayers?

Our community’s health is at

stake. We can not wait 10 years.

We need our community centre

rebuilt now.

My suggestion is to combine

city council resources with funding

and donations to create a new

Shirley Library, service centre,

learning space and playground,

with the existing Shirley Playcentre.

That would lift up our community

and give us a meeting

place for all cultural, educational

and recreational activities.

I created the website

www.10shirleyroad.org.nz to collate

my research and ideas for my

submission to the city council’s

Long Term Plan. Feel free to take

a look

Readers respond to a story

about the Main North Rd speed

limit potentially being lowered

Heather Wilkins – Commonsense

needs to prevail. In places like where

it’s motorway, it should

be 80km/h or 100km/h.

50km/h or 60km/h is

good, but the problem is

if you make it 60km/h,

cars will do 70km/h. I

have seen it on Carmen

Rd from Main South

Rd. Down Carmen Rd,

they do 60km/h when

it’s 50km/h. Past the

Carmen and Buchanans

Rds intersection it’s

60km/h but people do 70km/h if not

faster.

Scotty Ogilvie – It should be

60km/h . . . most Christchurch locals

drive at 60km/h everywhere.

Sarah Spencer Smith – I’m

confused, isn’t this a motorway?

Rob E Wilton – 55km/h, directly

the middle number.

Neil Hawker – Very

rarely do you ever get

to 60km/h, most of the

time people do 50km/h

in 60km/h areas. So, if

reduced to 50km/h, you

will end up doing 40km/h

and simply add to the

normal frustrations of

driving in Christchurch,

and still you will get the

normal incompetent

drivers crashing as

usual. Just leave it as is, I can’t see

any advantage to once again catering

for stupid drivers at the expense and

frustration of the normal ones. But I

guess it’s going to happen anyway, so

waste of time even complaining.

UNCLEAR: Part of Main North Rd could have its speed limit dropped to 50km/h.

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School

have suffered an opening

round defeat in the UC

Championship, losing 27-34 to

Christ’s College.

Hosting one of the competition

powerhouses on Saturday, Shirley

Boys led 24-20 midway through

the second half.

However, the tides quickly

turned when they conceded a

penalty try and were reduced to 14

men after intentionally

sending the ball dead in their

own in goal area. Shirley captain

Mitchell Barry, who scored a

first half try and went five from

including an effort from

halfway, then levelled the scores

27-27 after a penalty

conversion with just over

10min remaining.

In the dying stages of the

game Shirley found themselves

camped in their own 22, fighting

to fend off constant pressure from

Christ’s.

The visitors power up front

proved too much in the end

though as they bundled their way

over the line to steal victory on

the final whistle.

Big influence for young Rams

star and Papanui High old boy

• By Jacob Page

FORMER PAPANUI High

School star Taylor Britt needs

to look no further for a spark

than his Rams coach and mentor

Mark Dickel.

The 21-year-old will play his

first full season for the NBL

franchise having been part of

their development programme

in 2015. His first game saw him

contributes six points, three

rebounds and two steals as

the Rams downed the Super

City Rangers 100-95 at Cowles

Stadium.

The 1.89m guard shares the

same court position as his coach

did for his illustrious career.

Britt said Dickel had been

a major influence in his

development so far.

“Mark has worked with me

for the past four years and has

been a key part in moulding me

into the player I am and want to

become,” he said.

Britt said he felt more equipped

to handle the physical NBL-style

after his American stint.

He started 58 of his 62 games

for Southeast Community

College in Nebraska.

“The games were faster,

the American guys were big

and use their bodies a lot,” Britt

said.

STAR: Taylor Britt is making an impact with the Canterbury

Rams.

Britt was known as a guard

who liked to attack the rim to try

to create space for his teammates

to shoot.

He hoped to continue to

learn from Dickel and imports

Winston Shepard and Xavier

Thames in the hopes of securing

an Australian NBL development

contract.

A gut feeling

Digestive health is becoming increasingly important

for improving our overall wellbeing. As there is a

distinct connection between our tummy and our

moods, immunity and even our behaviours, it pays

to follow your gut if you feel out of sorts with these

nutritional enhancer

Dietary fibre is made up of three

types and each play a different role

throughout the digestive tract. it’s often

a case of balancing them all and not only

supplementing with just one. to ensure

you get enough fibre in your diet: women

should aim for 25 grams to 30 grams

and men 30 grams to 38 grams each day.

Soluble fibre are found in oats, psyllium,

vegetables, fruits with their skin on and

supplements like Metamucil. insoluble

fibre can be found in wheat bran pasta

and quinoa. resistant starch is contained

in cold cooked pasta, potatoes and firm,

fresh bananas.

Probiotics and prebiotic foods can

help keep the correct pH balance(acidity

to alkalinity) in our intestines. These

‘good’ bacteria assist with breaking down

fibre in the bowel and produce healthy

stool movements. Probiotics can be

found in supplements, cultured yoghurt,

kombucha drinks and fermented

vegetables. Prebiotic foods are Jerusalem

artichokes and raw garlic, leeks and

onions.

Poor gut health could be caused by,

but not limited to, high stress levels,

caffeine, smoking or inadequate water

consumption. if you suffer from

prolonged periods of reflux, constipation,

diarrhoea or cramping and nausea, seek

medical advice. your doctor may help

identify possible intolerances or allergies.

complements the other living features,

including remote controlled blinds, speaker

system, and TV above the large gas fireplace.

With four bedrooms, options abound for

either family, work from home or guests.

All bedrooms have ample storage, with the

master boasting a king-size walk in robe and

beautifully appointed ensuite with double

shower. A sliding door from the master to a

private spa tops off the experience that awaits.

The yard has been designed to maximise

lawn and living, and planted to allow for

privacy. Vege patches are an added extra for

those with green thumbs.

Heating is more than covered with two

heat pumps to complement the gas fire, and

under tile heating gives the added touch of

luxury. Double glazing throughout ensures

that the home retains its heat with minimal

input required.

The double garage has been designed with

added space either size, allowing for extra

storage, and even has a large wardrobe set in

to cleverly utilise space. The laundry is a great

size, once again with added storage outside of

the main thoroughfares in the house which

cleverly creates cleaner lines and less clutter.

Only a short walk into the Prebbleton

Village, and short drive to the motorway

into the city, this location is popular for very

good reason. Schools and childcare nearby

also give great options for families, and the

neighbourhood is very quiet and family

oriented.

Open Homes Wednesday, Saturday and

Sunday 1:00pm - 1:45pm.
