THE CITY council has<br />

purchased a property<br />

neighbouring the St Albans<br />

Community Centre rebuild site.<br />

The owners of the property<br />

at 130 Caledonian Rd, Thriza<br />

and Philip Bean, objected to the<br />

centre’s resource consent in July,<br />

United States to attend Space<br />

Camp, as part of their science,<br />

It will be the first time a group<br />

from the school has travelled to<br />

saying the facility would increase<br />

the activity, traffic, noise and<br />

demand for car parks in the area,<br />

as well as a loss of privacy.<br />

The property borders on the<br />

Colombo St site of the planned<br />

community centre.<br />

Board chairwoman Ali Jones<br />

said the option to purchase the<br />

Selwyn House teacher Simon<br />

Christie believes the opportunity<br />

is not one to miss.<br />

He got an email about<br />

property was considered four to<br />

five years ago, when planning<br />

began. But as a house was on the<br />

property, it was too problematic.<br />

Due to earthquake damage, the<br />

house was demolished. However,<br />

a building that remained has<br />

since been removed and the site<br />

is now vacant.<br />

“It’s important to note that the<br />

another school attending the<br />

camp. However, it was a high<br />

school and a group of all boys.<br />

“I thought, we’re a girls school,<br />

why do we have to wait until<br />

high school for these girls to get<br />

section was not bought in any<br />

way to stop or influence anything,”<br />

said Ms Jones.<br />

The community board has<br />

requested $350,000 from the city<br />

council’s Long Term Plan for the<br />

rebuild project.<br />

“In order to purchase the section,<br />

money was used from the<br />

budget for the community centre,<br />

these opportunities to be presented<br />

to them and why do we<br />

usually give them to just boys?<br />

So we asked who would be interested<br />

and pretty much everyone<br />

was.” •Turn to page 4<br />

Council buys land next to St Albans centre site<br />

so the money requested is to<br />

replace that,” said Ms Jones.<br />

She said the board voted on the<br />

purchase six to eight weeks ago.<br />

IT’S A win for small businesses on Cranford St.<br />

Those located north of McFaddens Rd will not lose their onstreet<br />

parking to cycleways.<br />

City council informed businesses and residents last year of<br />

new plans which would see cycleways replace on-street parking<br />

as part of the Northern Arterial development.<br />

However, business owners fought tooth and nail in the consultation<br />

process, and now the city council has listened.<br />

Small World Preschool and Nursery owner Keith Wayman<br />

said it is good news, as he once feared his business may have to<br />

shut its doors if its on-street parking was lost.<br />

The backing of Fletcher Construction, which owns Cranford<br />

St businesses PlaceMakers and Mico Plumbing, may have played<br />

some role in the decision.<br />

Cranford St businesses won’t lose parks<br />

Relief as<br />

plan for<br />

cycleway<br />

amended<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

CRANFORD ST businesses<br />

owners are relieved the city<br />

council will not remove their<br />

on-street parking as part of the<br />

Northern Arterial plans.<br />

The city council indicated<br />

last year cycleways could take<br />

up on-street parking on a small<br />

stretch of Cranford St north of<br />

McFaddens Rd.<br />

But the design will no longer<br />

go ahead after the city council<br />

said consultation with businesses<br />

saw the plans amended.<br />

Small World Preschool and<br />

Nursery owner Keith Wayman<br />

feared they would have to shut<br />

their doors if designs went<br />

ahead.<br />

But now he is relieved.<br />

“What we are hearing is good<br />

news, we are pleased . . . and very<br />

comfortable with where we are<br />

at.”<br />

RESULT: Small businesses owners Andrew Norton and Sue and Keith Wayman are pleased<br />

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

on-street parking lost to cycleways.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

Small World Preschool was<br />

supported by construction<br />

firm Fletcher Building, which<br />

owns PlaceMakers and Mico<br />

Plumbing on Cranford St, in its<br />

battle against the plans.<br />

However, Mr Wayman said<br />

the issue is still “a little up in the<br />

air” as the plans are only drafts<br />

at this stage and there are still<br />

“processes to work through”,<br />

which involves consultation<br />

with residents. City council<br />

manager planning and delivery<br />

transport Lynette Ellis said: “The<br />

Christchurch Northern Corridor<br />

Alliance amended the design<br />

plans to include parking for this<br />

section of Cranford St.”<br />

Ms Ellis said the plans will be<br />

discussed further with affected<br />

businesses and residents soon<br />

and then a report will go to city<br />

council for approval.<br />

Veterinary practice<br />

OUR “EYE’ VET…..<br />

Its not often I write about my husband,<br />

Steve Heap, but I must say I’m often<br />

very proud of the work he does at our<br />

Practice, and how he is always looking<br />

ahead to grow, improve and provide the<br />

best workplace for our staff. Steve has a<br />

keen interest in all things involving “eyes”<br />

but he’s also very competent at dental<br />

surgery too. Patients come far and wide<br />

to see Steve for his expert advice on eyes<br />

and compassionate, friendly service. He<br />

sees a myriad of animals,<br />

ranging from very expensive<br />

thoroughbreds and alpacas,<br />

to lions and kiwis at Orana<br />

park and then all domestic<br />

animals inbetween.<br />

Steve decided to study<br />

Ophthalmology while<br />

we were in the UK in our<br />

20’s on a working/holiday<br />

and it is one of the best<br />

specialities Steve could<br />

have chosen. Not only does<br />

Steve really enjoy eyes, but<br />

it has helped to grow our<br />

business and stand it apart from others.<br />

There are currently only 3 or 4 vets seeing<br />

ophthalmology referrals in NZL.<br />

Most days Steve has 3-6 Ophthalmology<br />

surgeries. He actually gets excited at the<br />

prospect of returning an eye to normal<br />

function and pain free.<br />

A few days ago was one of those “jubilant”<br />

moments. In waltzed a very friendly 8<br />

year old Labrador called “Arnie”. Arnie was<br />

referred to Steve with a persistent infected<br />

discharge coming from his Left eye that<br />

he had for 8 months. Eight months ago he<br />

had an ulcer in the same eye which initially<br />

cleared up, but quickly became constantly<br />

infected, weepy, red and sore. He had been<br />

on every eye ointment possible with no<br />

real results. The owners claimed they were<br />

cleaning the eye out 5 times a day. The<br />

purulent discharge seemed to be coming<br />

from the lower<br />

tear ducts.<br />

Steve suspected<br />

a foreign<br />

body so he<br />

recommended<br />

anaesthetizing<br />

Arnie and<br />

taking a closer<br />

look.<br />

Sure enough<br />

Steve removed<br />

a large barley<br />

grass awn from<br />

the left tear<br />

duct by cutting<br />

down into the duct. It had probably been<br />

sitting there for the past 8 months causing a<br />

chronic persistent eye infection. Steve is sure<br />

Arnie will make a full recovery with no need<br />

for eye drops. As a surgeon moments like<br />

these are hugely rewarding because straight<br />

away Steve has made a big difference to<br />

Arnies quality of life….and his<br />

owners.<br />

Clients and vets alike speak<br />

highly of Steve. His sole<br />

purpose is to solve problems<br />

quickly and professionally,<br />

with skill and expertise and he<br />

is great at explaining things<br />

clearly and simply, so clients<br />

really “get” what his plan is for<br />

their pet. Clients apparently<br />

love his scribbley little eye<br />

diagrams they leave with, diagrammatically<br />

describing the surgical procedure. I recently<br />

attended a veterinary meeting and felt<br />

very proud at all the accolades my fellow<br />

colleagues spoke about my husband. Steve<br />

is one of the very few vets around who<br />

freely, 24/7 gives ophthalmology advice to<br />

any vet in the country free of charge. He just<br />

enjoys sharing his knowledge to benefit all<br />

animals in need.<br />

We are currently in the throes of building<br />

a large, modern addition to adjoin our<br />

current premises in Hoon Hay. We are very<br />

excited about what this will mean for us<br />

and our patients in the future. We hope<br />

to be seen as a referral centre, with more<br />

specialists vets coming on board, as well<br />

as a first opinion clinic. We have very loyal,<br />

committed clients who often recommend<br />

us to others. We want to improve our level<br />

of knowledge and expertise and provide<br />

better care by creating<br />

separate dog and cat<br />

treatment , consult and<br />

waiting areas. We are<br />

constantly looking ahead<br />

to the future and trying<br />

to set ourselves up to<br />

stand alone, offering<br />

outstanding care, service<br />

and communication in an<br />

ever increasing corporate<br />

veterinary world, one<br />

in which we will never<br />

become part of.<br />

Steve and I are living<br />

the dream. What could<br />

be better than surrounding ourselves with<br />

animals all day, solving problems using our<br />

skill and expertise, making people smile<br />

again and saving animals lives. It just doesn’t<br />

get much better than that.<br />

At the camp, the girls<br />

will learn about space<br />

in a variety of ways,<br />

including simulations, and<br />

exploration and discovery<br />

activities.<br />

“They have simulations<br />

for space shuttles and<br />

Mars-bases . . . and the<br />

girls will get to take part<br />

The ‘Big Belly’ smart<br />

bins, distributed by Auckland<br />

company Manco<br />

Environmental Ltd, are<br />

fitted with sensors that<br />

can detect when the bins<br />

are nearing capacity<br />

and send an alert to<br />

maintenance contractors<br />

that they<br />

need emptying.<br />

Cr Keown said<br />

because all the<br />

information is<br />

recorded, it will<br />

highlight the areas<br />

which need more<br />

bins.<br />

The solar-powered<br />

bins are wind,<br />

fire and pest-proof and are<br />

currently being trialled at<br />

the New Brighton Seaside<br />

Playground.<br />

“It just makes sense.<br />

These things have been<br />

in ‘space-based’ missions<br />

on earth and learn about<br />

all the science that would<br />

go into those. It will be an<br />

immersive experience,”<br />

said Mr Christie.<br />

Teacher Liz Fairhall<br />

said the girls will also get<br />

the opportunity to meet<br />

female role models in the<br />

field.<br />

invented by a (NZ) company,<br />

we should be supporting<br />

them,” he said.<br />

Bishopdale Park is one<br />

of the “problem areas”<br />

which could benefit from<br />

the bins, Cr Keown said.<br />

“It is one of our destination<br />

parks. People go out<br />

of their way to go there.”<br />

Leacroft St resident<br />

Graham Adams said<br />

earlier this year he was<br />

frustrated at the frequency<br />

of bin emptying at the<br />

park.<br />

He said he had contacted<br />

the city council several<br />

times via telephone, email<br />

and its Snap Send Solve<br />

app to report overflowing<br />

bins in the park.<br />

idea with the Fendalton-<br />

Edgeware village plans shelved<br />

Businesses<br />

feared more<br />

disruption<br />

PLANS TO close off the<br />

Edgeware Rd end of Colombo<br />

St and form a shared space have<br />

been abandoned in the shortterm.<br />

Instead some cost-effective<br />

Board and<br />

city council<br />

Ali Jones<br />

staff have<br />

recommended<br />

the project be<br />

deferred until others in the area<br />

are completed.<br />

Earlier this year, city council<br />

and the community board<br />

held a workshop with local<br />

businesses and residents to<br />

discuss design and layout ideas<br />

for the village.<br />

the area more people-friendly<br />

and easily closed for markets and<br />

events.<br />

However, community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones said<br />

there were concerns about the<br />

impact of the proposal on village<br />

businesses.<br />

“The area has already suffered<br />

considerable disruption from<br />

roadway and drainage work and<br />

from the construction of the<br />

Papanui Parallel cycleway,’’ she<br />

said.<br />

“We are also conscious of the<br />

fact there are several projects due<br />

for completion in the coming<br />

years that may change the way<br />

people use the area, such as the<br />

Edgeware Pool development and<br />

the new St Albans Community<br />

Centre.”<br />

St Albans Pharmacy owner<br />

and Edgeware Business<br />

Association chairman, Malcolm<br />

Pearce, did not back the plan<br />

and is relieved to hear it won’t be<br />

going ahead.<br />

“The businesses here didn’t<br />

think it was a good idea to<br />

restrict access to the village and,<br />

given all the disruption we have<br />

had over the past few years, it’s<br />

not good timing. It’s best to<br />

put it on hold and look at other<br />

mutually beneficial beautification<br />

projects.”<br />

FreshChoice Edgeware owner<br />

Stephen Anderson is also pleased<br />

with the outcome.<br />

“I think we can achieve a<br />

similar result in a different way.”<br />

“They (city council) obviously<br />

have listened to us, taken that on<br />

board, which is very good. We<br />

have had some major disruption<br />

here . . . we would like to get back<br />

to normality.”<br />

Ms Jones said the board<br />

has asked the project team to<br />

come up with ideas for costeffective<br />

minor streetscape<br />

improvements which could<br />

enhance the area and be<br />

completed with minimal impact<br />

on the businesses.<br />

“This again is in response to<br />

feedback from those consulted,’’<br />

said Ms Jones.<br />

If the extra funding isn’t<br />

granted, Ms Jones said the<br />

board, along with city council<br />

staff, will have to look at ways to<br />

save money.<br />

“Whether that is in the building<br />

materials, a re-design or<br />

whatever. We will need to find<br />

ways to save money elsewhere<br />

in the project.”<br />

The community board will<br />

now wait to see if the funding<br />

is included in the LTP before<br />

deciding what to do next.<br />

Mr Rendall said there is still<br />

an exception to the centre,<br />

which will be considered by a<br />

goes to a hearing.<br />

determine if any changes to the<br />

current proposal is required.”<br />

Mairehau counsellor’s books<br />

help children worldwide<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

A COUNSELLOR from<br />

Mairehau Primary School is<br />

attempting to improve the lives<br />

of people involved in child<br />

trafficking by creating and<br />

selling her own books.<br />

Sue Dickson created Books For<br />

Hope in 2016 after writing her<br />

first book in<br />

2015.<br />

Since<br />

then, she<br />

has written<br />

four books,<br />

donated<br />

money to<br />

several<br />

overseas<br />

Sue Dickson<br />

charities and<br />

received a<br />

message from the Pope.<br />

“I am really passionate about<br />

children and I wanted to be able<br />

to give to charities which help<br />

children who are less fortunate,<br />

especially those who are<br />

involved with things like child<br />

trafficking,” she said. The books,<br />

titled Wisdom, Inner Peace, The<br />

Little Prayer Book and Power of<br />

the Heart, support New Zealand<br />

based non-profit organisations,<br />

Tent Peg Missions, Hagar New<br />

Zealand, LIFT International and<br />

Tearfund’s work combatting<br />

human trafficking and<br />

exploitation.<br />

“Each book that I’ve written,<br />

50 per cent of the profits go to<br />

charity and each book has a<br />

different charity.”<br />

So far she has raised more<br />

than $600. Tent Peg Missions<br />

helps children in Uganda, and<br />

the money Ms Dickson has<br />

raised has gone towards supplies<br />

at a school for children with<br />

disabilities. Hagar New Zealand<br />

works to rehabilitate children<br />

who have been rescued from<br />

child trafficking.<br />

Ms Dickson is currently<br />

writing two more books to add to<br />

her collection which are sold on<br />

her website and on Amazon.<br />

She hopes to complete two<br />

GOOD<br />

CAUSE:<br />

The profits<br />

from Sue<br />

Dickson’s<br />

books,<br />

including<br />

Wisdom,<br />

are used to<br />

raise money<br />

for New<br />

Zealand<br />

charities<br />

which help<br />

children<br />

overseas.<br />

children’s books next year as<br />

well, and her 10-year plan is to<br />

build schools overseas.<br />

“That’s the goal. Hopefully I<br />

can sell enough books,” she said.<br />

Ms Dickson sent a copy of one<br />

of her books to Pope Francis and<br />

received a thank you letter.<br />

“His holiness Pope Francis<br />

was pleased to receive the gift<br />

which was kindly sent to him.<br />

He appreciates the devoted<br />

sentiments which prompted this<br />

thoughtful presentation,” the<br />

letter read. Ms Dickson said it<br />

was a “very exciting and special<br />

moment” in her life.<br />

VOLUNTEERING IS now<br />

second nature for Edgeware’s<br />

Margaret Cone who has clocked<br />

up 10 years of service at the<br />

Community Energy Action<br />

curtain bank.<br />

Back in 20<strong>08</strong>, Miss Cone got<br />

involved with the organisation<br />

through a friend and has never<br />

looked back.<br />

Initially the curtain bank was<br />

for sick babies and the elderly,<br />

and this appealed to Miss Cone<br />

who liked helping the groups.<br />

The afternoon shift also fits in<br />

with her lifestyle.<br />

Miss Cone appeared on<br />

TVNZ’s Good Sorts programme<br />

in 2016 and volunteers her time<br />

to other charities, such as Red<br />

Cross’ Meals on Wheels, Driving<br />

for the Blind and Multiple Sclerosis<br />

New Zealand.<br />

The idea of recycling and reusing<br />

things as well as the social<br />

contact with people is what has<br />

kept Miss Cone coming back.<br />

“It’s a healthy thing for the<br />

body, as it involves quite a lot of<br />

fitness.”<br />

The work requires folding,<br />

bagging and stacking the heavy<br />

curtains.<br />

The curtain Bank has been<br />

operating for more 23 years and<br />

provides free, recycled curtains<br />

Bid to get<br />

funding for<br />

a Belfast<br />

library in LTP<br />

BELFAST MAY get it’s own<br />

library and service centre if the<br />

Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board gets its way.<br />

The community board has<br />

requested $150,000 to progress<br />

the project in the city council’s<br />

Long Term Plan <strong>2018</strong>-2028.<br />

The project was deferred in<br />

the 2015-2025 LTP and was<br />

completely removed from the<br />

draft <strong>2018</strong>-2028 LTP.<br />

“The board requests this<br />

project is reinstated urgently<br />

for the year 2019-2020,” said<br />

community board deputy chairwoman<br />

Emma Norrish at a LTP<br />

submission hearing last week.<br />

“We note a huge population<br />

growth in the north of Christchurch<br />

and the need for city<br />

council staff to identify suitable<br />

sites for potential community<br />

facilities.”<br />

Belfast is now home to about<br />

7600 residents – and this number<br />

is predicted to double by<br />

2041 to about 15,000. The board<br />

hopes city council will explore<br />

partnership opportunities and<br />

notes that there a new school is<br />

planned for Belfast.<br />

Langdon connection to Papanui<br />

Papanui Heritage<br />

Group chairman Murray<br />

Williams writes about the<br />

development of Langdons<br />

Rd which is the second part<br />

of last month’s column<br />

THOMAS LANGDON died in<br />

1904 and, at this time, the blind<br />

street named after him was little<br />

more than a sleepy rural track<br />

flanked by a few houses.<br />

However, over the next 115<br />

years Langdons Rd has been<br />

notable for continually changing<br />

land use patterns.<br />

In 1911, a group of enterprising<br />

citizens purchased a block of<br />

land on Langdons Rd between<br />

North Rd and Restell St. The<br />

Papanui bowling, tennis and<br />

croquet club was formed and it<br />

prevailed until the late 1960s on<br />

a site now dominated by retail<br />

outlets.<br />

In 1926, the Education Department<br />

acquired 6.2ha of agricultural<br />

land fronting on Langdons<br />

Rd alongside the northern<br />

railway. However, it took the<br />

government another 10 years<br />

to approve, plan and complete<br />

the school first known as the<br />

Papanui branch of the Christchurch<br />

Technical College.<br />

In 1953, the school became Papanui<br />

High School to acknowledge<br />

its change to a modern<br />

multi-course high school.<br />

In 1948, the American Firestone<br />

Tire and Rubber Company<br />

purchased and developed a block<br />

of orcharding land to the northwest<br />

of the railway and eventually<br />

became Papanui’s largest<br />

employer.<br />

On the opposite side of the<br />

street, Sanitarium, with an even<br />

longer history in the area, was<br />

also a major employer, although<br />

it is now undergoing a phased<br />

withdrawal from Papanui.<br />

Currently, the former Firestone<br />

site is undergoing a further<br />

change in land use, as some of<br />

the industrial buildings have<br />

been demolished to allow for the<br />

development of the Northfield<br />

Business Park, which includes<br />

new facilities for a range of<br />

enterprises, such as a pre-school,<br />

a gym and the Trade Union<br />

Centre.<br />

Prior to this in 2001, further<br />

to the north, Langstone Lane<br />

was developed as a site for warehouses.<br />

However, the northern end of<br />

Langdons Rd is still dominated<br />

by residential properties, many<br />

of which were built as part of an<br />

extensive government housing<br />

project in the early and mid-<br />

1950s.<br />

Other forms of land use included<br />

the development of a corner<br />

site on the Main North Rd by<br />

the local branch of the RSA.<br />

After World War 1, surplus<br />

army buildings were combined<br />

into one structure and in the<br />

mid-1940s a new art deco façade<br />

view of the original<br />

buildings has since<br />

been obscured<br />

by subsequent<br />

development.<br />

was added as part of a general<br />

refurbishment. Eventually this<br />

building was demolished and,<br />

since 1995, the Westpac Bank<br />

has occupied the site.<br />

The Papanui Library and<br />

Community Service Centre<br />

on the corner of Restell St was<br />

established in 1995. However, the<br />

dominant feature of the southern<br />

end of Langdons Road is the<br />

Northlands Shopping Centre. Its<br />

growth continues today with the<br />

provision of further restaurant<br />

and bar facilities, a development<br />

which is to be named Langdons<br />

Quarter, a further connection to<br />

Thomas Langdon and the street<br />

to which he gave his name.<br />

Men<br />

“The question of the power of men has been very topical<br />

in the past year with changes in political leadership,<br />

#MeToo and other associated movements. In images<br />

used in the media of significant male politicians or male<br />

professional leaders these men more often than not<br />

wear a suit albeit maybe without a tie these days. The<br />

suits these men wear convey power. Do these men wear<br />

suits because they are a symbol of power? Do corporate<br />

woman feel they have to emulate men in the way they<br />

dress to achieve power? Why in fact is there such a<br />

historical difference in the clothes of men and woman?<br />

Do men have an advantage in society because there<br />

exists this type of uniform that gives them an unspoken<br />

air of authority that there is not something equivalent of<br />

for woman?<br />

The history of menswear suits, over-coats, trousers,<br />

shirts and ties can be traced back several centuries<br />

and remain very traditional and recognisable in the 21st<br />

century. The shape of the lapel, the size of the tie, the<br />

quality of the material and the way they are produced<br />

may have changed but the form and its associations are<br />

immediately identifiable. Sombre colours of greys and<br />

black suits still dominate. These suits are trans-seasonal.<br />

It is a code of dress that is universally recognisable. By its<br />

continued widespread use it isn’t likely to change. These<br />

suits are not necessarily worn for comfort so are they<br />

still in such dominant use because of the symbols they<br />

convey?<br />

Here seventy men are dressed in traditional suits then<br />

they deviate playing with shape and form, eccentricity,<br />

personality and individualism also drawing at times on<br />

more feminine influences of colour and pattern. It is an<br />

unresolved exploration of menswear and its implications<br />

in contemporary society.” Gill Hay.<br />

in the early 1980s and has been exhibiting widely in New<br />

Zealand and overseas for the past 20 years. She lives in<br />

Call for community facility grows<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Joanna Gould<br />

is pushing<br />

for a new<br />

community<br />

facility at 10<br />

Shirley Rd and<br />

puts forward<br />

some of her<br />

ideas for the site<br />

I ATTENDED an antenatal class<br />

at the Shirley Community Centre<br />

11 years ago and have been a<br />

local Shirley resident for the past<br />

10 years.<br />

I have a passion for research,<br />

learning and community spaces.<br />

The former Shirley Community<br />

Centre at 10 Shirley Rd was<br />

an iconic focal point of our<br />

community since 1915. It was<br />

originally Shirley Primary<br />

School, and later on our Shirley<br />

Community Centre, a place<br />

for cultural, educational and<br />

recreational activities.<br />

It was seriously damaged in the<br />

February 22, 2011, earthquake,<br />

and was demolished in 2012.<br />

Since the earthquakes, our<br />

community has been struggling<br />

DAMAGED: The former Shirley Community Centre site before it<br />

was demolished in 2012.<br />

to get our homes repaired and<br />

rebuilt. Two primary schools<br />

have closed, our roads are still<br />

damaged, there are detours and<br />

closures in place, and sucker<br />

trucks run throughout the night<br />

due to sewer system failures<br />

when it rains.<br />

The Dudley Creek flood remediation<br />

is overdue by a year, and<br />

the ‘temporary depot/storage<br />

yard’ sites at 10 Shirley Rd and<br />

40 Guild St are having a negative<br />

impact on residents lives.<br />

Recently we learnt that the new<br />

QE II campus, built to relocate<br />

Avonside Girls’ and Shirley<br />

Boys’ High Schools, may change<br />

‘our school’ zones, which will<br />

deny our children access to ‘our<br />

schools’.<br />

And now, after years of waiting<br />

for the rebuild to start for<br />

our community centre, we have<br />

been dealt another blow. We find<br />

out that the funding granted<br />

by the city council has not been<br />

included in the draft Long Term<br />

Plan.<br />

The 10 Shirley Rd site is a constant<br />

visual reminder to me, and<br />

the locals/road users of Shirley<br />

Rd, that our community has been<br />

left behind; we haven’t rebuilt<br />

from the earthquakes.<br />

What message are we sending<br />

to the children at Shirley Primary<br />

School and the children from<br />

other schools that travel past this<br />

area?<br />

That it’s okay to treat your<br />

community spaces like this?<br />

Do our children matter to the<br />

city council? Are they not future<br />

Christchurch ratepayers?<br />

Our community’s health is at<br />

stake. We can not wait 10 years.<br />

We need our community centre<br />

rebuilt now.<br />

My suggestion is to combine<br />

city council resources with funding<br />

and donations to create a new<br />

Shirley Library, service centre,<br />

learning space and playground,<br />

with the existing Shirley Playcentre.<br />

That would lift up our community<br />

and give us a meeting<br />

place for all cultural, educational<br />

and recreational activities.<br />

I created the website<br />

www.10shirleyroad.org.nz to collate<br />

my research and ideas for my<br />

submission to the city council’s<br />

Long Term Plan. Feel free to take<br />

a look<br />

Readers respond to a story<br />

about the Main North Rd speed<br />

limit potentially being lowered<br />

Heather Wilkins – Commonsense<br />

needs to prevail. In places like where<br />

it’s motorway, it should<br />

be 80km/h or 100km/h.<br />

50km/h or 60km/h is<br />

good, but the problem is<br />

if you make it 60km/h,<br />

cars will do 70km/h. I<br />

have seen it on Carmen<br />

Rd from Main South<br />

Rd. Down Carmen Rd,<br />

they do 60km/h when<br />

it’s 50km/h. Past the<br />

Carmen and Buchanans<br />

Rds intersection it’s<br />

60km/h but people do 70km/h if not<br />

faster.<br />

Scotty Ogilvie – It should be<br />

60km/h . . . most Christchurch locals<br />

drive at 60km/h everywhere.<br />

Sarah Spencer Smith – I’m<br />

confused, isn’t this a motorway?<br />

Rob E Wilton – 55km/h, directly<br />

the middle number.<br />

Neil Hawker – Very<br />

rarely do you ever get<br />

to 60km/h, most of the<br />

time people do 50km/h<br />

in 60km/h areas. So, if<br />

reduced to 50km/h, you<br />

will end up doing 40km/h<br />

and simply add to the<br />

normal frustrations of<br />

driving in Christchurch,<br />

and still you will get the<br />

normal incompetent<br />

drivers crashing as<br />

usual. Just leave it as is, I can’t see<br />

any advantage to once again catering<br />

for stupid drivers at the expense and<br />

frustration of the normal ones. But I<br />

guess it’s going to happen anyway, so<br />

waste of time even complaining.<br />

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

SPORTS<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School<br />

have suffered an opening<br />

round defeat in the UC<br />

Championship, losing 27-34 to<br />

Christ’s College.<br />

Hosting one of the competition<br />

powerhouses on Saturday, Shirley<br />

Boys led 24-20 midway through<br />

the second half.<br />

However, the tides quickly<br />

turned when they conceded a<br />

penalty try and were reduced to 14<br />

men after intentionally<br />

sending the ball dead in their<br />

own in goal area. Shirley captain<br />

Mitchell Barry, who scored a<br />

first half try and went five from<br />

including an effort from<br />

halfway, then levelled the scores<br />

27-27 after a penalty<br />

conversion with just over<br />

10min remaining.<br />

In the dying stages of the<br />

game Shirley found themselves<br />

camped in their own 22, fighting<br />

to fend off constant pressure from<br />

Christ’s.<br />

The visitors power up front<br />

proved too much in the end<br />

though as they bundled their way<br />

over the line to steal victory on<br />

the final whistle.<br />

On Saturday Shirley travel<br />

Big influence for young Rams<br />

star and Papanui High old boy<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

FORMER PAPANUI High<br />

School star Taylor Britt needs<br />

to look no further for a spark<br />

than his Rams coach and mentor<br />

Mark Dickel.<br />

The 21-year-old will play his<br />

first full season for the NBL<br />

franchise having been part of<br />

their development programme<br />

in 2015. His first game saw him<br />

contributes six points, three<br />

rebounds and two steals as<br />

the Rams downed the Super<br />

City Rangers 100-95 at Cowles<br />

Stadium.<br />

The 1.89m guard shares the<br />

same court position as his coach<br />

did for his illustrious career.<br />

Britt said Dickel had been<br />

a major influence in his<br />

development so far.<br />

“Mark has worked with me<br />

for the past four years and has<br />

been a key part in moulding me<br />

into the player I am and want to<br />

become,” he said.<br />

Britt said he felt more equipped<br />

to handle the physical NBL-style<br />

after his American stint.<br />

He started 58 of his 62 games<br />

for Southeast Community<br />

College in Nebraska.<br />

“The games were faster,<br />

the American guys were big<br />

and use their bodies a lot,” Britt<br />

said.<br />

Rams.<br />

Britt was known as a guard<br />

who liked to attack the rim to try<br />

to create space for his teammates<br />

to shoot.<br />

He hoped to continue to<br />

learn from Dickel and imports<br />

Winston Shepard and Xavier<br />

Thames in the hopes of securing<br />

an Australian NBL development<br />

contract.<br />

STUDENTS FROM Rangi Ruru<br />

Margaret’s were all selected<br />

for the under-18 South Island<br />

Fourteen girls and boys from<br />

both islands raced in the regatta<br />

last month.<br />

Amber captained the squad<br />

to win all of their races in the<br />

under-18 women’s eight-plus and<br />

Rangi director of rowing Mark<br />

Cotham said it has been an<br />

intense season.<br />

“Being part of the under-18<br />

South Island team has been a<br />

wonderful experience for the<br />

girls. The campaign aims to<br />

work as a stepping stone to high<br />

performance pathways through<br />

to New Zealand rowing,” he<br />

said.<br />

Mr Cotham was one of our<br />

coaches selected to attend the<br />

regatta.<br />

The South Island were<br />

the ultimate winners of the<br />

two-day competition, winning<br />

10 of the 16 events; 71 points<br />

A gut feeling<br />

Digestive health is becoming increasingly important<br />

for improving our overall wellbeing. As there is a<br />

distinct connection between our tummy and our<br />

moods, immunity and even our behaviours, it pays<br />

to follow your gut if you feel out of sorts with these<br />

nutritional enhancer<br />

Dietary fibre is made up of three<br />

types and each play a different role<br />

throughout the digestive tract. it’s often<br />

a case of balancing them all and not only<br />

supplementing with just one. to ensure<br />

you get enough fibre in your diet: women<br />

should aim for 25 grams to 30 grams<br />

and men 30 grams to 38 grams each day.<br />

Soluble fibre are found in oats, psyllium,<br />

vegetables, fruits with their skin on and<br />

supplements like Metamucil. insoluble<br />

fibre can be found in wheat bran pasta<br />

and quinoa. resistant starch is contained<br />

in cold cooked pasta, potatoes and firm,<br />

fresh bananas.<br />

Probiotics and prebiotic foods can<br />

help keep the correct pH balance(acidity<br />

to alkalinity) in our intestines. These<br />

‘good’ bacteria assist with breaking down<br />

fibre in the bowel and produce healthy<br />

stool movements. Probiotics can be<br />

found in supplements, cultured yoghurt,<br />

kombucha drinks and fermented<br />

vegetables. Prebiotic foods are Jerusalem<br />

artichokes and raw garlic, leeks and<br />

onions.<br />

Poor gut health could be caused by,<br />

but not limited to, high stress levels,<br />

caffeine, smoking or inadequate water<br />

consumption. if you suffer from<br />

prolonged periods of reflux, constipation,<br />

diarrhoea or cramping and nausea, seek<br />

medical advice. your doctor may help<br />

identify possible intolerances or allergies.<br />

REAL ESTATE<br />

Premium Prebbleton<br />

10 Farthing Drive, Prebbleton<br />

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 2 car-garage | 4 off-street parks | Listing #FM5413<br />

In a world of sameness, the cream always<br />

rises to the top, and this extraordinary home<br />

is no exception.<br />

Upon entry, the scale and space is<br />

immediately apparent. Built with deliberate<br />

specifications, defined around the ultimate in<br />

family living and freedom, there is no doubt<br />

this property is one of a kind in Prebbleton.<br />

The living area, with huge proportions,<br />

sets the tone for the rest of the house. Full<br />

length windows with sliding doors extend<br />

the already massive living outside into a<br />

generous paved patio, and back yard. High<br />

ceilings amplify the space, which leads to an<br />

entertainer’s dream of a kitchen, complete<br />

with engineered stone benchtops, belling<br />

stove, and a big scullery and pantry set off<br />

the main kitchen. Sleek modern design<br />

complements the other living features,<br />

including remote controlled blinds, speaker<br />

system, and TV above the large gas fireplace.<br />

With four bedrooms, options abound for<br />

either family, work from home or guests.<br />

All bedrooms have ample storage, with the<br />

master boasting a king-size walk in robe and<br />

beautifully appointed ensuite with double<br />

shower. A sliding door from the master to a<br />

private spa tops off the experience that awaits.<br />

The yard has been designed to maximise<br />

lawn and living, and planted to allow for<br />

privacy. Vege patches are an added extra for<br />

those with green thumbs.<br />

Heating is more than covered with two<br />

heat pumps to complement the gas fire, and<br />

under tile heating gives the added touch of<br />

luxury. Double glazing throughout ensures<br />

that the home retains its heat with minimal<br />

input required.<br />

The double garage has been designed with<br />

added space either size, allowing for extra<br />

storage, and even has a large wardrobe set in<br />

to cleverly utilise space. The laundry is a great<br />

size, once again with added storage outside of<br />

the main thoroughfares in the house which<br />

cleverly creates cleaner lines and less clutter.<br />

Only a short walk into the Prebbleton<br />

Village, and short drive to the motorway<br />

into the city, this location is popular for very<br />

good reason. Schools and childcare nearby<br />

also give great options for families, and the<br />

neighbourhood is very quiet and family<br />

oriented.<br />

Open Homes Wednesday, Saturday and<br />
