McMaster & Heap<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 />

CREATING CHANGE: Chrys Horn says the community worked together to get<br />

Kennedys Bush Track reopened.<br />

Working together<br />

to change<br />

your community<br />

Halswell<br />

Community<br />

Project<br />

chairwoman<br />

Chrys Horn<br />

talks about<br />

making<br />

changes happen in her<br />

area<br />

CHANGE happens most<br />

often and most easily when<br />

we work together to make<br />

it happen.<br />

A recent example was<br />

the formation of the<br />

Kennedys Bush Track<br />

Network, which led to the<br />

reopening of the track.<br />

It was great to see the<br />

network grow quickly<br />

and highlight the critical<br />

mass of people out there<br />

interested in getting the<br />

track open.<br />

As the group formed,<br />

the media became more<br />

interested in the issue and<br />

people worked together to<br />

tell the city council that<br />

they really wanted that<br />

road line open.<br />

Time and again we see<br />

the same principle in the<br />

work that the Halswell<br />

Residents’ Association<br />

does around our area, such<br />

as ensuring our local roads<br />

are safe and that we have<br />

necessary local facilities.<br />

Sports clubs shape our<br />

kids and our Saturdays;<br />

while churches provide<br />

support and activities for<br />

our local area.<br />

Another way we are<br />

seeing the work achieved<br />

by communities is in<br />

the many planting days<br />

that we see happening<br />

on the Port Hills, in the<br />

quarry, and around local<br />

streams. Here people<br />

are making a significant<br />

positive difference to our<br />

landscapes and to local<br />

water quality. A recent<br />

example is the Cashmere<br />

Streamcare group which<br />

met two weeks ago to weed<br />

and put mulch around<br />

plantings along the edge<br />

of a local drain between<br />

Sparks and Sutherlands<br />

Rds. Communities change<br />

things in all sorts of<br />

different ways around our<br />

city and our local area.<br />

We have a huge range<br />

of wonderful community<br />

groups in Halswell and<br />

they need your support.<br />

Get out there and get<br />

involved in a community<br />

that interests you and see<br />

how you can help to make<br />

a difference.

Community-led<br />

design process<br />

should happen<br />

McCleary bows out of race<br />

•From page 1<br />

He took off his helmet for the<br />

last time in 1966.<br />

Post-racing, Mr McCleary<br />

served as the president of Wigram<br />

Lions Club, as well as club<br />

and as district governor.<br />

Wigram Lions Club member<br />

of 45 years, Jack Tait, said Mr<br />

McCleary made a number of<br />

contributions to the community<br />

and could not single out a<br />

standout over the years.<br />

“He was blessed with a very<br />

good memory, he could recall<br />

stories from the past and name<br />

people and he always had a<br />

good joke to tell,” Mr Tait said.<br />

<strong>May</strong>or Lianne<br />

Dalziell<br />

explains what<br />

will happen<br />

now that<br />

submissions<br />

on the Long<br />

Term Plan<br />

have closed<br />

THANK YOU to the more than<br />

1500 submitters on the Long Term<br />

Plan <strong>2018</strong>-28.<br />

THe hearings are now under way<br />

with some early themes emerging,<br />

including getting the basics right<br />

– from smooth roads to chlorinefree<br />

drinking water – and getting<br />

much-needed facilities built.<br />

A number of submitters have<br />

asked for a more community-led<br />

design process in future. In my<br />

view this can and should happen.<br />

As highlighted by the external<br />

advisory group, we all need to<br />

understand the links between<br />

our legal obligations as a council,<br />

our strategic directions, levels of<br />

service, the capital programme<br />

and operational expenditure.<br />

Pulling one lever can have a major<br />

impact on another.<br />

Submitters have picked up<br />

on this with respect to reduced<br />

expenditure on wastewater<br />

infrastructure leading to<br />

increasing the risk of sewage<br />

overflows into the rivers during<br />

storm events; and roads which<br />

might need an early repair to save<br />

a more costly repair or rebuild<br />

down the track.<br />

THis is the second Long<br />

Term Plan I’ve introduced, and<br />

although we know more than we<br />

did with the first, (e.g. we have<br />

our insurance settlement and<br />

now know how much we were<br />

shortchanged on the true cost of<br />

repairing the earthquake damage<br />

to our horizontal infrastructure),<br />

maybe we could co-design the<br />

consultation document with the<br />

community in such a way as to<br />

make everything more accessible<br />

for everyone.<br />

THe theme for this LTP is “we’re<br />

in this together”. That cannot be<br />

just for the delivery – it must be in<br />

the planning as well.<br />

Maddie back in school<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

WEST MELTON teen Maddie<br />

Collins has returned to St<br />

Margaret’s College after an<br />

18-month break due to health<br />

problems.<br />

Maddie, 14, was too sick to<br />

attend school but has been doing<br />

better following a successful<br />

kidney transplant in January.<br />

Her mother, Sarah Manson-<br />

Collins, said Maddie was enjoying<br />

being back at school but was<br />

finding it tiring.<br />

Mrs Manson-Collins said<br />

Maddie will attend school<br />

Mondays to Thursdays, with<br />

Fridays put aside for ongoing<br />

hospital appointments.<br />

She said they are keeping an<br />

eye on Maddie but are pleased<br />

her kidney biopsy in March<br />

showed no sign of rejection.<br />

Maddie and her family were<br />

told on January 16 their fiveyear<br />

wait for a kidney match<br />

BACK TO SCHOOL: Maddie Collins has returned to St<br />

Margaret’s College after more than a year off.<br />

had been found. They flew from<br />

Christchurch to Auckland<br />

the following day and Maddie<br />

underwent an initial operation<br />

and then a second operation<br />

to reposition the kidney hours<br />

later at Starship Children’s<br />

Health.<br />

Mrs Manson-Collins said<br />

Maddie has a lot of exciting<br />

events coming up, including<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 />

Gill attended Canterbury University School of Fine Arts<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 />

De-stress with ‘downtime dice’ at your library<br />

ROLL ON into the Fendalton<br />

and Upper Riccarton libraries or<br />

the Te Hapua: Halswell Centre to<br />

pick up your downtime dice.<br />

The new well-being tool –<br />

organised by post-earthquake<br />

recovery campaign All Right? –<br />

encourages Cantabrians to enjoy<br />

some “guilt-free downtime”,<br />

utilising free dice that feature<br />

feel-good suggestions, such as<br />

enjoying the outdoors or making<br />

community connections.<br />

The dice are also available for<br />

pick-up at Central Library on<br />

Peterborough St, and the New<br />

Brighton, Papanui, Shirley, South<br />

libraries, along with several<br />

cafes.<br />

All Right? manager Sue Turner<br />

underlines the importance of<br />

prioritising downtime.<br />

“A few minutes of quality<br />

downtime can boost our energy,<br />

focus, creativity, productivity<br />

and happiness,” Ms Turner says.<br />

“Sometimes we need a gentle<br />

reminder that it’s OK to take<br />

a break, and that’s where our<br />

downtime dice come in.”<br />

The downtime dice suggests a<br />

HALSWELL LEARNING Tree<br />

has branched out and opened a<br />

nursery.<br />

The early childhood centre<br />

started planning the nursery in October<br />

after identifying a need for it<br />

in the community.<br />

It already had a pre-school which<br />

range of simple activities, such as<br />

enjoying music, getting outside,<br />

or catching up with a friend.<br />

accommodates about 30 children<br />

aged between two and five-yearsold.<br />

The nursery is licenced for a<br />

maximum of 20 children.<br />

The centre’s months of planning<br />

paid off as Labour MP for Port<br />

the nursery. Its annual garage sale<br />

last year raised $1200 for the<br />

nursery – which went towards<br />

natural wooden furniture and<br />

The nursery’s opening had a free<br />

bouncy castle, sausage sizzle and<br />

integral part of his day.<br />

“Downtime can be simple<br />

things like reading a book, having<br />

a coffee, having a treat of<br />

some sort . . . but it’s the ordinary<br />

and soul-enriching nature of<br />

those pleasures that really enhances<br />

individuals and increases<br />

their capacity to function at high<br />

levels and feel really good about<br />

themselves,” Mr Enoka says.<br />

“I think society needs resilient<br />

citizens and that goes for workers,<br />

athletes, men, women, and<br />

children.<br />

“Developing resilience is about<br />

exposing yourself to waves of<br />

stress and waves of recovery.<br />

Having downtime is good for<br />

your recovery.”<br />

He believes that 10-15min<br />

“emotional recovery activities”<br />

The entertaining drama teacher<br />

Christ’s College director of drama David<br />

Chambers has been teaching for 40 years and<br />

been made a life member of Drama New<br />

Zealand. He talks to Julia Evans<br />

You’ve recently been made<br />

a life member of Drama New<br />

Zealand, how did that feel?<br />

Well it was a total surprise, I<br />

was absolutely gobsmacked, but<br />

really honoured. There aren’t a<br />

lot of them, there are only about<br />

eight life members in total. It’s<br />

the drama teachers’ association<br />

for primary and secondary<br />

schools from around the country.<br />

I’ve never really held back<br />

about what’s going on in drama<br />

and how it could be better. I’m<br />

very lucky that I’ve had a wealth<br />

of students who are very talented<br />

and got themselves some very<br />

good results. I can bathe in their<br />

glory a bit, that’s quite fun. I’m<br />

always talking to other drama<br />

teachers around the country<br />

and we have a good dialogue together,<br />

which I tend to contribute<br />

to a fair amount.<br />

Was your family proud?<br />

They were absolutely gorgeous;<br />

I got lovely reactions from all<br />

around the country. It’s amazing<br />

what Facebook does. They all<br />

started posting it on Facebook<br />

and it started going a little bit<br />

viral. I’m lucky to have a life-long<br />

partner who is also a high school<br />

teacher. She’s brought me three<br />

lovely kids and so now we have a<br />

number of grandchildren sort of<br />

all around the world.<br />

Can you tell me a little bit<br />

about your background in<br />

teaching?<br />

I started out with a commerce<br />

and geography background<br />

and taught all that stuff for 10<br />

years. Then was lucky enough<br />

to be able to shift into my first<br />

drama department. I started<br />

the first drama department at<br />

Aranui High School and I did<br />

that in 1987. Then I grew the<br />

department while I was working<br />

on all the national growth for<br />

NCEA. So I spent 19 years at<br />

Aranui, then moved to Linwood<br />

for a year, and after that I came<br />

to college. So this is my 21st year<br />

at college, 40 years with a lot of<br />

beautiful people.<br />

It must have been an<br />

interesting shift from Aranui<br />

and Linwood to Christ’s<br />

College?<br />

Well it was. I often think that<br />

the kids still need the same<br />

thing. What you’re trying to<br />

do is you’re trying to drag<br />

the best out of each kid,<br />

give them the opportunities;<br />

try and give them the<br />

unconditional love and<br />

just create the biggest<br />

challenges for them<br />

to achieve. Just a<br />

little bit above<br />

what they<br />

need to<br />

be, an<br />

arm’s<br />

reach<br />

away.<br />

There’s<br />

a greater<br />

wealth base<br />

at college,<br />

but money<br />

isn’t the only<br />

thing people<br />

are wealthy<br />

with. The<br />

wealth of<br />

experience<br />

at Aranui<br />

is just extraordinary. In fact,<br />

the demise of Aranui is one of<br />

the saddest things in my life. I<br />

believe that school should still<br />

be there. We had an amazing<br />

drama department and it wasn’t<br />

only drama, it was a bloody good<br />

school. It’s such a pity it’s just<br />

been wiped off the face of the<br />

earth. It’s gone except in the loving<br />

memories of a few people.<br />

How important is drama?<br />

Studying drama in school<br />

means that kids can look at the<br />

world with a fresh lens. It opens<br />

up a whole range of thought<br />

and opportunity to think in the<br />

skin of other people. It teaches<br />

diversity, it teaches inclusion and<br />

tolerance. Those things are just<br />

vital right now in this confused<br />

world.<br />

Over the years you must<br />

have taught some interesting<br />

students, any juicy stories?<br />

It would be very difficult to<br />

know quite what stories to tell.<br />

There have always been some<br />

rat bags who thought it would<br />

be a good idea to take my car<br />

for a ride to go and get fish<br />

and chips. That was a goodie.<br />

BACKSTAGE: David Chambers is currently<br />

working on the Christ’s College and Rangi<br />

Ruru Girls’ School’s production of West Side<br />

Story.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

I mean there are a lot more<br />

stories about students who have<br />

been exceptional in their<br />

own right. Those are<br />

the real stories. I have<br />

had the privilege of<br />

teaching some really<br />

good television<br />

presenters, actors,<br />

stage technicians,<br />

writers, reporters.<br />

The most<br />

wonderful thing<br />

about all of those<br />

young people is<br />

the contact that<br />

I continue to<br />

have with them,<br />

often on a<br />

monthly basis.<br />

I’m still always<br />

on the phone<br />

to someone<br />

I taught at<br />

college or at<br />

Aranui. It’s<br />

amazing.<br />

How did you<br />

get into<br />

the world<br />

of drama<br />

and arts?<br />

I found<br />

out that I<br />

could do<br />

it in year<br />

13 in 1971.<br />

It was<br />

something<br />

that I could do at school but<br />

also I could enjoy it beyond<br />

the classroom. I did a bit of it<br />

at Otago University and I did a<br />

bit of it up here in Christchurch<br />

with various outfits. Then when<br />

I got to Aranui, I realised I could<br />

pursue it, which is what I did.<br />

From there, we developed it and<br />

I just made it happen for the<br />

kids.<br />

They wanted it to happen. It<br />

is my life role, it’s what I’m here<br />

to do really, because it gives me<br />

such a buzz discovering texts,<br />

discovering culture, discovering<br />

things about myself in a great<br />

way, I just want to share that<br />

with the kids and pass it on.<br />

When was the last time you<br />

performed on stage?<br />

Years ago. Probably the last<br />

time I would’ve performed<br />

would have been the 1994<br />

production of Les Miserables, I<br />

think. That was such a huge feat,<br />

to be able to fit that in was a very<br />

difficult task, but I managed it<br />

and the school wanted me to do<br />

it. That was the last and that’s<br />

because there’s just no time. This<br />

is a seven-day a week job and<br />

you just can’t commit to a full<br />

production.<br />

Someone asked me the other<br />

day if that made me unhappy. I<br />

said ‘well, no, it can’t be because<br />

if I was unhappy I would have<br />

done something about it’. I think<br />

I am, if truth be told, happy<br />

enough to be where I am making<br />

it possible for other people<br />

to act, sing and dance. Well<br />

interact, because acting is really<br />

interacting.<br />

Have you had any on stage<br />

disasters?<br />

There’s been plenty of them.<br />

Every show has its own set of<br />

challenges and sometimes it just<br />

sort of stops. Fortunately, that’s<br />

not often. When it does stop, you<br />

just have to get it started again. If<br />

the fire alarm goes off, you’ve just<br />

got to stop, reset and do it again.<br />

I’ve had a few of those.<br />

In 1994, most people forget,<br />

while Les Mis was on there was<br />

an earthquake. We were doing<br />

a matinee at the Isaac Theatre<br />

Royal and everyone had to<br />

evacuate. We all walked past all<br />

those bricks that hadn’t fallen<br />

down but would fall down later<br />

in 2011. Everybody forgets. I can<br />

remember the lights moving and<br />

the building moving. We were<br />

standing on the side of the stage<br />

and all of the lights just started<br />

swinging and we’re thinking<br />

‘holy heck’.<br />

The whole audience and cast<br />

just piled out so there was a<br />

whole French Revolution out<br />

on Gloucester St. Back to it<br />

after a few durries. I played the<br />

policeman, Javert.

Horace is 100 and iPad savvy<br />

War radar expert keeps up with the play<br />

HORACE LONGSON might<br />

have just turned 100 but using<br />

his iPad to check Facebook is a<br />

breeze.<br />

That’s because he has lived<br />

alongside innovative technology<br />

since World War 2.<br />

When war broke out in 1939,<br />

the railway clerical cadet volunteered<br />

for the air force and<br />

became involved in the secret<br />

world of radar.<br />

Mr Longson was one of a few<br />

in New Zealand trained to use<br />

the Typex British-made cipher<br />

machines.<br />

It scrambled morse code<br />

messages, enabling planes patrolling<br />

the coastline and hunting<br />

Japanese or German submarines,<br />

ships, or aircraft, to communicate<br />

in secret.<br />

Christchurch’s Colonial<br />

users a guided walking<br />

“We’ve been playing<br />

with the idea of doing an app for<br />

a while. For years I first wanted<br />

to do one on the history of the<br />

Avon River but this was the one<br />

that got off the ground,” she said.<br />

The heritage trail is a 3.5km<br />

loop of seven hotel sites ranging<br />

from the 1860s to 1900s, Dr<br />

Baird said.<br />

The app starts at<br />

the site of the former<br />

Mr Longson celebrated his<br />

100th birthday with family and<br />

friends at the Papanui Club last<br />

Saturday.<br />

He is feeling good for his age<br />

but concedes he’s a “bit wobbly<br />

in the legs.”<br />

Mr Longson still attends weekly<br />

church services at St Martins<br />

Anglican church, where he once<br />

operated the sound desk.<br />

“I’m a technician, but the age<br />

of improvements – they’ve gone<br />

digital. They work off a little<br />

laptop screen, a tiny little screen<br />

Last Sunday, the church<br />

celebrated his birthday with a<br />

morning tea and a special ride in<br />

a vintage vehicle.<br />

Born in Temuka in 1918 and<br />

named after his uncle Horace<br />

Prattley who died at the Somme<br />

in World War 1, Mr Longson was<br />

always inquisitive and handy. As<br />

a child, he built his own radio<br />

sets.<br />

After World War 2, he returned<br />

to his railways job and<br />

soon became interested in ham<br />

radio.<br />

He is a life member of the<br />

Amateur Radio Transmitters’<br />

Association. He would also build<br />

his own television sets – his first<br />

had a 15cm screen made from a<br />

radar tube.<br />

Mr Longson retired in 1976<br />

and his wife of 67 years, Brenda,<br />

died about six years ago.<br />

The 100-year-old has lived in<br />

the same house for “probably” 60<br />

years and has no plans to move.<br />

“I’ll only go if I’m carried out.<br />

I’m not intending to leave this<br />

house as long as I possibly can,”<br />

he said.<br />

Mr Longson, who doesn’t wear<br />

glasses or hearing aids, says the<br />

secret to reaching 100 is eating<br />

good food and not drinking or<br />

smoking.<br />

The most important thing<br />

he’s learnt is to be kind to other<br />

people. “Anything I can do for<br />

anybody, I’m very happy to do<br />

it,” Mr Longson said.<br />

Laneways link central city<br />

Christchurch is<br />

becoming a city<br />

of laneways and<br />

courtyards, with<br />

many developments<br />

taking inspiration from<br />

Melbourne. Bridget<br />

Rutherford reports<br />

PEOPLE SIT in the sun on the<br />

benches eating their lunches and<br />

chatting in the newly-finished<br />

Evolution Square.<br />

In the heart of the Innovation<br />

Precinct, the new public space is<br />

buzzing. Next door, Little High<br />

Eatery is a hive of activity.<br />

Nearby, the site where Poplar<br />

Lane once stood is now home to<br />

eateries, and Vanguard Square,<br />

another courtyard for people to<br />

relax in.<br />

Over in Cashel Lobby in the<br />

BNZ Centre, people wander in<br />

through the different laneways to<br />

buy their lunches and sit on seats<br />

and beanbags – the courtyard<br />

sheltered from the wind.<br />

The Terrace development is<br />

nearby. Oxford Lane, which runs<br />

between two of the buildings,<br />

provides a place for revellers to<br />

enjoy a drink at the tables under<br />

the glow of hanging lights.<br />

This was the city council and<br />

Government’s vision for the central<br />

city – activating the spaces<br />

in between the buildings, much<br />

like Melbourne.<br />

And now, it’s becoming reality.<br />

Both Evolution and Vanguard<br />

Squares are part of Government<br />

anchor project the South Frame.<br />

It will eventually join the Innovation<br />

and Health Precincts.<br />

It is made up of five pedestrian<br />

ACCESS: The architects behind The Crossing visited<br />

Melbourne to take inspiration for the laneways through<br />

the development. Right: Oxford Lane in The Terrace<br />

will provide a place for people to sit and socialise in<br />

between two buildings.<br />

lanes and eight vehicular access<br />

lanes, which run from north to<br />

south. It also has four gathering<br />

spaces, while a spine known as<br />

the Greenway would run right<br />

through the middle from east to<br />

west.<br />

Otakaro South Frame project<br />

manager Cameron Mclean said<br />

Evolution Square was an example<br />

of how well it had worked.<br />

He said the project’s laneways<br />

and gathering spaces were a<br />

catalyst for further private development<br />

in those blocks.<br />

“Having these public spaces<br />

on their doorstep encourages<br />

developers to deliver the likes of<br />

hospitality and retail ventures<br />

that spill out onto the laneways<br />

and make this an appealing part<br />

of the city for people.”<br />

Melbourne’s laneways were<br />

inspiration for the South Frame’s<br />

potential, but they tried to add<br />

a unique layer to the design<br />

through collaboration with<br />

CONTRAST:<br />

The once<br />

popular Sol<br />

Square is a<br />

shadow of<br />

its former<br />

self.<br />

HUNTER<br />

Matapopore, Mr Mclean said.<br />

For example, the garden beds<br />

were filled with plants traditionally<br />

used by Ngai Tahu and<br />

stones used for tools or trading<br />

had been placed throughout the<br />

frame, he said.<br />

Otakaro would continue to divest<br />

land adjoining the laneways<br />

to parties to develop them to<br />

attract people to the central city,<br />

he said.<br />

The concept of laneways<br />

and courtyards was part of the<br />

central city blueprint, developed<br />

after the quakes in 2012.<br />

But the idea of enhancing<br />

these spaces was around before<br />

then.<br />

The city council was in the<br />

process of upgrading its existing<br />

laneways before the February 22,<br />

2011, earthquake.<br />

The Central City Lanes Plan<br />

identified lanes that had the<br />

potential to be successful like the<br />

popular Sol Square and Poplar<br />

Lane.<br />

But when the February 22,<br />

2011, earthquake hit, that plan<br />

was paused, and both Poplar<br />

Lane and Sol Square were severely<br />

damaged.<br />

While new buildings have<br />

popped up in Poplar Lane’s<br />

place, Sol Square is a shadow of<br />

its former self.<br />

The red Mini Cooper teeters<br />

above the square where weeds<br />

grow up through the cracks in<br />

the pavement, and graffiti covers<br />

the buildings and windows.<br />

Some evidence of its past remains<br />

– the faded signs for once<br />

popular The Fish and Chip Shop<br />

and Toast and the large musical<br />

notes on the side of one of the<br />

buildings.<br />

Sol Square is, however, rising<br />

from the ashes, with developer<br />

Dave Henderson’s plans to restore<br />

the complex to its former<br />

glory.<br />

Since the quakes, other private<br />

developments were also including<br />

laneways and courtyards in<br />

their designs.<br />

Strange’s Lane was the first.<br />

The lane which runs between<br />

Lichfield and High Sts has a<br />

similar feel to the old Sol Square<br />

and Poplar Lane with brick<br />

buildings, hanging lighting, bars<br />

and eateries.<br />

It was the brainchild of developer<br />

Shaun Stockman.<br />

He said Strange’s Lane took<br />

inspiration from Melbourne<br />

laneways – not too wide and<br />

intimate.<br />

“I had a break there just after<br />

the quakes and it gave me the<br />

idea.”<br />

Mr Stockman said there was<br />

an arcade on the site in the<br />

1960s.<br />

He said the work happening<br />

now with laneways was a follow<br />

on from the work the city council<br />

had done before the quakes.<br />

The Crossing opened last year.<br />

It is made up of several buildings<br />

which are all interconnected.<br />

The man behind the development,<br />

Philip Carter said while<br />

there was a planning requirement<br />

to incorporate laneways<br />

within The Crossing, they were<br />

happy to do it.<br />

“The laneways create interest<br />

and encourage discovery. We invested<br />

in the architecture of the<br />

development, and the laneways<br />

gave us an opportunity to showcase<br />

the architecture and make<br />

the spaces interesting.”<br />

Mr Carter said the architects<br />

visited Melbourne early in the<br />

design process and they used its<br />

laneways as inspiration.<br />

He said they created an “interesting<br />

CBD” and spaces where<br />

people would want to spend<br />

time. Richard Peebles has included<br />

laneways in his McKenzie<br />

and Willis complex which will<br />

eventually link to the Duncan’s<br />

Buildings he’s restoring.<br />

He plans to connect his Riverside<br />

development, due to open at<br />

the end of the year, with a new<br />

building to be constructed on<br />

the former Guthrey Centre site,<br />

to link it with Ballantynes.<br />

Much of the South Frame is<br />

expected to be finished by the<br />

end of the year.<br />

Land Information New Zealand<br />

is working to acquire the<br />

remaining land needed. Three<br />

are still to be finalised.<br />

The laneways are opening<br />

progressively.<br />

But while some of the city’s old<br />

laneways are gone, some of the<br />

new ones reflect on their history.<br />

One of the lanes leading into<br />

Kirkwood<br />

teacher takes<br />

NZ marathon<br />

title in Rotorua<br />

KIRKWOOD INTERMEDIATE<br />

teacher Blair McWhirter was<br />

the standout at the Rotorua<br />

Marathon, claiming the <strong>2018</strong><br />

New Zealand title raced on<br />

Saturday around Lake Rotorua.<br />

McWhirter (below), from the<br />

Sumner Running Club, went to<br />

the front of the race from the<br />

outset with<br />

young Lake<br />

City runner<br />

Michael Voss,<br />

and they<br />

were joined<br />

by Voss’<br />

clubmate Sjors<br />

Corporaal<br />

by the 10km<br />

mark.<br />

The three<br />

leaders ran together through the<br />

hills and past the half way mark,<br />

sharing turns at the front for another<br />

17km in perfect conditions.<br />

At the 27km mark, McWhirter<br />

applied the pressure coming off<br />

the last of the hills and the group<br />

split up with Corporaal not able<br />

to respond and Voss running<br />

into trouble.<br />

The 35-year-old who has a personal<br />

best of 2hr 22min 38sec set<br />

12 months earlier at the London<br />

Marathon, continued to stretch<br />

his lead over the final 10km and<br />

came home in winning time<br />

of 2hr 29min almost 6min clear<br />

of Corporaal.<br />

McWhirter said he wanted to<br />

settle into a good rhythm and see<br />

what he had left for the second<br />

half of the race.<br />

“I got to the 27km mark and<br />

felt that was my time to give it a<br />

nudge,” he said post-race. “I got<br />

there feeling pretty good and I<br />

thought I’d have a good crack for<br />

3km and I managed to open up a<br />

bit of a lead.”<br />

He said he was satisfied he<br />

made his big move early enough<br />

which set him up for the victory.<br />

With the marathon doubling as<br />

the New Zealand Championships<br />

for <strong>2018</strong>, the first three finishers<br />

all win their first New Zealand<br />

championship medals.<br />

St Thomas claim 9-0 win<br />

in season opening clash<br />

SPORTS<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

ST THOMAS of Canterbury<br />

College couldn’t have asked<br />

for a better start to their goal<br />

of qualifying for the premier<br />

national football tournament.<br />

They defeated Christ’s College<br />

9-0 on Wednesday in the<br />

opening round of the Connetics<br />

school premier first XI football<br />

compeititon.<br />

Coach Jacob Allen says even<br />

he was surprised when his team<br />

shot to a 4-0 lead within 20min<br />

of their opening match of the<br />

match at Christchurch Football<br />

Centre.<br />

By full-time the team has<br />

added another five courtesy of a<br />

Seth Simpson hat-trick, braces<br />

from Tom Downes and Aashish<br />

Rai, and two Christ’s own goals.<br />

“Christ’s are normally a really<br />

good opposition so we were<br />

happy,” said St Thomas’ coach<br />

Jacob Allen.<br />

The team were cheered to victory<br />

by their megaphone wielding<br />

supporters club. Around 25<br />

students braved the cool evening<br />

for a 7.30pm kick-off to cheer on<br />

their team.<br />

BIG WIN: St Thomas’ supporters club celebrate with the first<br />

XI following their 9-0 win over Christ’s College.<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

“There was a huge amount of<br />

support . . . some of the chat the<br />

lads have is a bit average but the<br />

amount of noise they make is<br />

amazing,” said Allen.<br />

St Thomas’ had a successful<br />

2017 campaign which saw them<br />

finish fourth at nationals and<br />

runners up in the Connetics<br />

premier competition following a<br />

loss on penalties to St Andrew’s<br />

College.<br />

Other than the back four, the<br />

team have retained the large<br />

chunk of players from last season.<br />

Their first goal is to qualify<br />

for nationals that are being held<br />

in Christchurch in September.<br />

To do so they will need to perform<br />

among the top four or five<br />

teams in the Connetics premier<br />

competition.<br />

They play Christchurch<br />

Boys’ High School tomorrow<br />

in their second round match at<br />

Christchurch Football Centre.<br />

SBHS lose close first round encounter<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 />

HEALTH & BEAUTY<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 />
