THE CLOUD of uncertainty

over the future of Denton Park

has cleared, but uncertainty

still lingers over a multi-million

dollar community facility in

Hornby.

Denton Park supporters

are “ecstatic” over the city

council hearing panel

recommendation to not use

the park for a community

facility.

Save Denton Park treasurer

Ross Houliston said he was

pleased that the panel listened

to residents and hoped this was

not the end for the $35.7 million

customer service, library,

recreation and sports facility

proposed for Hornby.

Fears

Yaldhurst

quarry

decision

sets a

precedent

• By Anan Zaki

TEMPLETON RESIDENTS fear

they could be next following the

approval of a quarry expansion in

Yaldhurst last week.

Quarrying company Road

Metals was given permission

by Environment Canterbury to

increase the size of its Yaldhurst

operations, which meant it can

quarry land 100m from houses.

Templeton Residents Association

chairman Garry Kilday labelled

the decision as “ridiculous

and shocking.”

He and other residents have

been campaigning against a

proposed quarry in the area by

Fulton Hogan.

Mr Kilday also expressed shock

over how the Canterbury District

Health Board’s advice over the

quarry was limited to a single

paragraph on a 54-page report.

“It just flies in the face of common

sense.

“They [ECan] completely ignored

the advice from the district

health board. I don’t understand

how they are getting away with

it,” he said.

from the editor’s desk

PEOPLE POWER has prevailed over the

long-running mega centre complex in

Hornby.

But the big question now is, where will

it go?

A city council hearings panel yesterday rejected Denton Park

as the site of the planned $35.7 million complex (see pages 1, 3).

There were more public submissions on the issue than the

Cathedral and the decision went the way of the majority. That’s

democracy at its best.

A mega centre is needed in the booming western suburbs and

Kyle Park looks like being the next location off the rank.

Not so democratic was the Yaldhurst quarry decision (see

page 1).

It doesn’t augur well for Templeton residents who are in the

early stages of what will be a long battle over a quarry.

Mega centre unlikely at Denton park

•From page 1

Mr Houliston hoped a new

facility could be built on Kyle

Park.

“It [Kyle Park] does have issues

with contaminated land, a fair

bit of the eastern end [of the

park] is not contaminated.

“I believe Kyle Park should be

remediated. Asbestos has also

been found on the surface so the

whole piece of ground needs to

be done up,” Mr Houliston said.

Steps should also be taken to

protect Denton Park “forever”,

he said.

The year-long battle took a

personal toll, Mr Houliston said.

“It does physically drain you.

I’ve got a box of papers probably

around four inches deep of

research that’s been done,” he

said.

Save Denton Park chairman

Mark Peters wasn’t present at

the hearing but watched a live

stream of the event.

He said the group was

“completely” in support of

having a similar facility in

Hornby. “Denton Park has never

been the right place to put it,” Mr

Peters said.

He also agreed Kyle Park was

a potential location for a new

facility but also suggested the

Sockburn School site, once the

school completed its planned

move to Wigram Skies.

Greater Hornby Residents

Association chairman Marc Duff

said a future facility was a major

“concern” for the association.

“We’re still desperate to get

that [swimming] pool in Hornby

and now it’s a matter of us

working with the residents and

the council staff and ensure we

get them,” Mr Duff said.

The hearings panel

recommendation not to use

Denton Park was made to the

Haslwell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board, which would

make the final decision.

The proposed facility drew

immense opposition from

residents after the city council

voted in favour of it going on

Denton Park in August last

year.

Hearings panel chairwoman,

city councillor Sara Templeton,

said going through more than

1400 submissions showed that

there was a “strong desire” from

the community to keep the park

for recreation purposes only.

“The main concerns we

have are around the traffic

issues in the area – this area of

Hornby is already at capacity,

and like many submitters,

we’re concerned that any

new development in Denton

Park would only increase the

congestion,” Ms Templeton said.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora said a date is yet to

be set for a decision on the park’s

future.

Your Local Views

Long Term Plan issues raised in submissions

Riccarton

Ward

councillor

Vicki Buck

shares her

thoughts

on the Long

Term Plan

submissions

FOR THE last three weeks, we’ve

been reading and listening to a

lot of submissions on the Long

Term Plan, which is basically

the plan for how the city council

spends your money.

We’ve suggested where we

might spend it and a lot of people

have raised a lot of issues.

A big one has been the stadium

– which has brought in submissions

both ways. Many people

have asked to bring forward the

major cycleway routes ahead of

among submissions on the Long Term Plan.

where they have been pushed

back to in the draft Long Term

Plan.

There has been a lot of emphasis

on repairing streets and making

sure flooding and stormwater

is prioritised. People want their

neighbourhood looking and feeling

repaired.

Quite a lot of people have

talked on housing and the importance

of people in the community

having houses and how

basic a right that is. Many have

asked that the city council build

more social houses so the number

is back to at least as many as

there were pre-quake.

Others have told us of the pressure

that rates create, especially

for those on limited incomes.

And we’ve had differing views

too on the idea of a fuel tax to

reduce the need for rates.

There’s been an incredible

diversity of views. So asking for

your views doesn’t necessarily

provide easy answers to the key

issues because a diverse community

has diverse views and we’ve

heard those.

The Government’s go-ahead

for the capital acceleration fund

in the Budget provides some

opportunities to do some things

that may have been impossible

earlier and focuses on the stadium,

or multi-use arena, and

the red zone, as well as gaps in

the horizontal infrastructure.

It’s been a huge privilege being

able to listen to people and read

their thoughts and feelings. It’s

one of the privileges of being on

the city council, and your submissions

really do matter.

Chef swaps five-star dining for charity

• By Anan Zaki

BEFORE MOVING to Halswell,

chef Stefan Freuding was living

big, cooking at various five-star

kitchens in Europe and the

Middle East.

Originally from Germany, Mr

Freuding moved to New Zealand

for work six years ago, initially

in Wellington, before settling

in Christchurch three

years ago.

But now the days of fine

dining are behind him. He

has instead opted to work

as a head chef at Can Do

Catering, a charitable business

owned by the Laura

Fergusson Trust, which

employs people with physical

disabilities.

Mr Freuding said leaving

behind cooking in hotels and

restaurants was easy.

Supervising his new team

made up of physically challenged

people, was more rewarding, he

said.

“It’s probably the best job I’ve

Kathryn

Jones

had so far in my life. They’re just

so friendly, they help each other,

people will come to you and try

to do whatever they can,” Mr

Freuding said.

His team of eight works hard

and makes “top-quality” food,

he said.

“They are great, but obviously

some people forget instructions

5min later, but they

try very hard,” Mr Freuding

said.

The food they make

depends on what clients

order and his team could

produce almost anything,

he said.

Mr Freuding said some

people ask why he took up

full-time charity work. “I made

more money before, but money

is not that important,” he said.

“Most of my friends who are

chefs, ask why I do it, when you

actually tell them what you do

they understand it,” he said.

Laura Fergusson Trust chief

executive Kathryn Jones said the

trust was delighted to have Mr

Freuding on-board and planned

to expand the catering business

to provide permanent employment

to the disabled. “Our

ultimate goal is to provide great

food but also to provide more

employment for people with

physical disabilities,” she said.

“We have to produce a really

good product but our whole

mission is around providing

more employment for people

who ordinarily wouldn’t have

employment,” she said.

Can Do Catering currently

employ 10 staff all together,

eight of whom have physical

disabilities, Mrs Jones said. With

Mr Freuding joining the team,

she believed the business would

continue to grow.

“It’s already great, but it’s going

to get even better. And then we’re

going to be probably one of the

largest employers of people with

significant physical disabilities

in the South Island,” Mrs Jones

said.

WHEN 22-YEAR-OLD India Rewha

saying it felt amazing

She is now preparing to

– but the competitions in

“For example, most pageants

Mr Irving said.

“The job itself is quite a

complex job. We have multiple

facets within the company and it

“The print also had a matte

parts of the print to be shiny

and some parts to be dull,” he

Water tower back

to original colour

• By Anan Zaki

ADDINGTON’S HISTORIC

water tower is sporting its

original colour scheme for the

first time in decades.

The 21.9m structure at Tower

Junction was damaged in the

earthquakes but has recently

been repaired, strengthened and

given a fresh coat of paint.

“In recent times the tower has

been painted either grey or black

but we knew that when it was

originally built in 1883 it was

painted in Victorian colours,’’

says city council Heritage Programme

manager Richie Moyle.

“Working out what those

Victorian colours were was not

an easy task as we only had black

and white photos of the tower,

but we finally got the information

that we needed to allow us

to replicate the original colour

scheme,” Mr Moyle said.

He said he was thrilled to restore

the landmark to its former

glory and had already received

positive feedback from the

community regarding the new

colour.

“How the tower looks now is

pretty much how it would have

looked when it was first built to

supply water for Addington’s

railway workshops,’’ Mr Moyle

said.

The Addington water tower

was designed by Peter Ellis, the

then chief draughtsman for the

Railways Department, and was

built using prison labour.

The octagonal-shaped tower

sits on a slight lean as it was built

on a base of quicksand and clay

– it sunk 22cm during construction.

The city council said it carried

the highest possible Historic

Places rating because it was the

first reinforced concrete water

tower built in the world.

Precedent fears over

expansion of quarry

•From page 1

Anti-quarry campaigner

Simon Moore said he was

scared that a precedent

had been set.

“They [CDHB] are the

people who know how

people are affected by this

because they can see them.

“It scares the hell out of

me that it’s inevitable that

it’s going to happen out

here because of the rubber

stamping that’s going on

by ECan particularly,” Mr

Moore said.

He said his stance did

not mean he was against

quarrying. “Obviously

we need quarries if we’re

going to have roads.

But we don’t need them in

people’s backyards,” Mr

Moore said.

He said he felt sorry for

would be impacted by the

decision.

Villa students take in the old world

SCHOOLS

LEARNING HOLIDAY:

Students from Villa Maria

College and Shirley Boys’

High School visiting the

Colesseum in Rome.

STUDENTS FROM Villa Maria

College have just come back from

a European adventure over the

holidays.

The year 12 and 13 students

travelled to Greece and Italy with

students from Shirley Boys’ High

School as part of their classics

tour.

The tour began in Athens,

Greece, and went to classical

sites including the buildings on

the Acropolis, the Temple of

Hephaestus, and the old Greek

Agora.

“The traditional Greek dancing

night was very entertaining,

as was witnessing the students

haggling in the Plaka market

area. From Athens we went south

to the Peloponnese, and visited

the towns of Corinth, Nafplio,

Sparta, Mystras and Olympia,”

Villa Maria teacher in charge of

classical studies, Simone Bailey,

said.

From Greece, the group travelled

to Italy, basing themselves

in Sorrento.

The students, along with

the parents and teachers accompanying

the group, visited

the preserved city of Pompeii, a

UNESCO world heritage site, to

experience how the Romans lived

during the first century.

In Rome, the group visited

many different classical sites,

including the Colosseum, Roman

Forum, Ara Pacis Augustae, Trajan’s

Column, and the Pantheon.

“A visit to the Vatican museums,

the Sistine Chapel and

St Peter’s Basilica was an aweinspiring

time for students,” said

Miss Bailey.

A “highlight” of the trip was

being part of the papal general

audience in St Peter’s Square, she

said.

“As a Catholic school, it was

an amazing opportunity for

students to see and listen to

the pope, and to see him on his

famous pope-mobile. He spoke

of peace and unity in the world,

and blessed us and our families,”

Miss Bailey said.

The occasion would be treasured

by the students for a long

time, she said.

Call to improve cycle safety on Memorial Avenue

• By Sophie Cornish

A CALL has been made to

improve cycle safety on Memorial

Ave including extending cycle

lanes and changes to parking

management.

In a city council Long Term

Plan 2018-2028 submission last

week, the Commodore Hotel

expressed its interest in supporting

an increase in cyclists using

Memorial Ave, however, it said

cyclists often have to compete

with parked cars for space in the

corridor.

“This pushes cyclists out into

the traffic lane encroaching into

motorist’s space and creates an

unsafe environment for all,”

said the submission, presented

by general manager Michael

Patterson.

Currently on-street parking on

Memorial Ave is not subject to

time restrictions or parking fees.

The hotel is requesting parking

restrictions be applied to reduce

all-day parking near the airport

and that ideas around parking

clearways during peak hours and

shared paths be considered.

“The hotel has an interest in

safer cycle access for it’s employees,

tourist opportunities with

e-bikes, families that regularly

cycle along this route and as a

organisation with a strong desire

to see more people safely cycling

on a comprehensive cycle network

in Christchurch,” said the

submission.

The draft LTP currently

proposes a $206m investment

in the Major Cycleways Routes,

however, none of these routes

provide a direct link between the

Christchurch International Airport

and the central city, along

Memorial Ave.

Mr Patterson said along with

key attractors at each end of the

route (the airport and central

city), there are many institutions

that would benefit from improved

cycle provisions including Burnside

Park, Burnside High School,

Christ The King Catholic School,

Burnside Primary School, as well

as thousands of residents.

It acknowledged there are

sections where parking removal

would conflict with other community

facilities, such as sports

facilities at Burnside Park.

In this location, a shared path

facility on the footpath could be

considered.

Christchurch Airport

development and compliance

manager Felicity Blackmore

supports the submission and said

currently cycling to the airport

now is only safe if you are an

“expert cyclist.”

“You have to be willing to take

your life into your hands, most

days, as a person who does this

every day. The only way to get

there is by driving your car essentially,”

she said.

SPACE NEEDED: A motorist driving on Memorial Ave crosses

the centre-line to give the cyclist enough room.

Surfers pay tribute to Rangi in paddle out

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PADDLE out to honour a well -

-known surfer who passed away

after a short battle with cancer

was held on Saturday.

Families, friends and fellow

surfers gathered at the north

ramp near the New Brighton

Pier to remember Rangimaria

(Rangi) Adrian Te Otimi King,

42, who died from liver cancer

on May 4.

Described as an “outstanding

surfer” and a “New Brighton

legend”, King was a professional

surfer whose career took off in

the late 1980s. He was a member

of the New Zealand scholastics

team and his career highlights

included beating former professional

surfer Martin Potter.

King was competing at the

Konica all stars skin contest

at Sandon Point, Wollongong,

when he beat Potter in the early

1990s.

King narrowly came second to

Australian surfer Mark Occhilupo

in the Konica contest.

He began surfing at age 11

after volunteers, including his

father Wally, helped start a

surfing programme as part of

St Ambrose Anglican Church’s

drop-in centre.

Faith Family Fellowship

REMEMBERED: Well-known surfer Rangimaria King was honoured with a paddle out by families, friends and fellow surfers on

Saturday.

PHOTOS: www.surferswall.com

Aranui soon found out the group

was interested in surfing and donated

their old surfboards from

the 1940s.

It wasn’t long before King

“caught the bug”. He took just

three weeks to pick up surfing

while the rest of the group took

about 18 months.

His sister Nga Anderson said

he would borrow other people’s

surfboards and they would laugh

at him until they saw him surf.

“That was when they had different

respect for him,” she said.

EXIT Surf Shop owner Tristan

Bennett said no one had heard

of him before he competed in a

Canterbury scholastic surfing

competition when he was 13 and

“blew everyone away”.

“I have got people who would

come into the surf shop and

say ‘I have just been down at

Brighton; there is a kid out there

destroying it’,” he said.

Photographer Warren Hawke,

who travelled with King for

photoshoots over a period of two

to three years, said he had an

uncanny natural surfing ability.

He said at the beginning of his

career, King started to win contests

on surfboards which were

not even up to high performance

level at the time.

He was quickly picked up as a

professional and sponsored by

the Exit Surf Shop, surf clothing

and board company O’Neill,

and POTTZ Surfboards, among

others.

King’s pro career lasted

more than 10 years into his early

20s.

After he stopped surfing

professionally, he continued to

teach surfing in New Brighton.

Close friend Sam Johnston,

who started out surfing with

King, said he was unique in

guitarist and good at any sport

he played.

Another friend Haydo Brain

said King was one of the most

influential surfers for him

growing up, and one of New

Zealand’s best, fastest and most

progressive board riders during

and after his pro carreer.

King’s funeral at Clareville Cemetery,

From one Coastal to another for Dabner

• By Jacob Page

COASTAL SPIRIT midfielder

Lauren Dabner may be chasing

her football dream halfway

round the world, but her heart

belongs in Christchurch.

The former Riccarton High

School student is enjoying her

off-season by playing for the

Coastal premier women’s team,

safe in the knowledge she still

has more to prove in the United

States.

The 22-year-old is set to play

for Coastal Carolina University

from July after leaving Texas

Tech.

The exercise science major said

her first year of a scholarship in

Texas was tough on many levels

but the struggles were worth it.

“I certainly had thoughts about

not continuing but I’m so glad

that I got through that first year

because it’s been so worth it,” she

said.

“It’s a combination of a lot

of things – you’re a long way

from home, in unfamiliar

surroundings playing in a new

league.”

The former under-17 New

Zealand representative has also

been part of a World Cup bid.

Living abroad and playing

women’s football in a global

stronghold has had its

challenges.

“The game is more physical

(in the US); the standard is very

high,” she said.

Coastal Carolina University

is in NCAA division one and

Dabner is motivated to put her

stamp on things.

“They’re a young team who

have finished runner-up in their

conference the past two seasons

so to get the that top finish

would be great.”

Dabner said she was always

excited to come home and play

for Coastal Spirit.

SPORTS

MIDFIELD ACE: Lauren

Dabner hopes to win her

conference and make the

national NCAA women’s

football tournament in the

United States with her new

college team this year.

PHOTO GARY BENNETT

“I’ve been with them for seven

seasons and they’ve been very

supportive with me chasing

this dream and allowing me to

come home and play when I’m

available.”

Dabner has put her New

Zealand international career

on hold until her studies and

scholarship are complete.

“If you want to be part of

that set up you have to be in

Auckland and right now I’m

committed to my studies and

helping my team reach their

goals.

“I’m still young enough that I

can come back, too, when things

change.”

Right now, Dabner wants to

help her two Coastal teams earn

victories.

Photo finish for racing’s ‘lucky charm’

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

AFTER 60 years of covering

horse racing in Canterbury,

photographer Colin Berry has

retired – sort of.

The 81-year-old, who lives in

Hornby, has been a regular sight

at Canterbury race meetings,

especially Riccarton Park gallops

and Addington trots, since the

late 1950s.

He has been photographing

winning horses, delighted

trainers, drivers and jockeys, and

ecstatic race owners for most of

his adult life – and says he will

miss it.

“A few years ago I had a double

hip replacement and I feel like

I’ve been slowing down since,”

he said.

“It’s always been great to photograph

happy people.

“A lot of owners or trainers

would come up to me early in the

night and say to me ‘I’m looking

forward to seeing you after

my race’ as if I was their lucky

charm.”

Born and bred in Christchurch,

Mr Berry began his career

during a three-month period of

compulsory military training

near the Ohakea Air Force Base

in Palmerston North.

He became a photographer’s

assistant at Addington Raceway

in 1956 doing photo finishes, and

the rest as they say is history.

​As well as racing shots, he also

did horse breeding photography.

I won’t miss the cold of the

winter night meetings but I’ve

just loved the camaraderie that

you have from working in the

industry,” Mr Berry said.

“There was a lot of mixed emotions

on the night but my son

Ajay has taken over for me and

he’s just fantastic.

“I’ll just be the messenger boy

now, delving the odd photo and

doing odd jobs in the office.”

Mr Berry said he remembers

covering the Addington Raceway

grandstand fire in 1961 as one

of New Zealand’s best standard

bred horses, Cardigan Bay, led a

race from start to finish,

He said Christian Cullen remained

one of his favourite horses,

not only for his dominance

on the track, but also because of

his physical make up.

“He’d be one of the best I’ve

seen, he was just so well put

together physically and a joy to

photograph,” Mr Berry said. “It’s

very hard to compare horses

from different eras, though.”

Mr Berry said technology advancement

has made the biggest

difference in race photography

over time.

“Back in the day, to try to get

a photo of a horse with all four

of its feet off the ground while

warming up was a real skill,” he

said.

“I’d listen from the beat and

the pace of the hooves . . . now

you can snaps 14 photos off in

1sec.

“That happiness of nailing the

perfect shot when you only had

one shot at it back in the day is

replaced by frustration if you

don’t get it these days with the

quality cameras.”

Knights wear pink on the league field to stop bullying

• By Jacob Page

THE RICCARTON Knights

rugby league club continues to

lead the way when it comes to

anti-bullying.

The club has had a fortnight

of their teams sporting pink apparel

in a message of solidarity

against bullying.

All teams have worn pink over

the past two weekends, with

Pink Shirt Day last Friday.

Riccarton was the first rugby

league club in the country to

tackle the issue head-on two

years ago, and now even the

Warriors will wear pink.

Club volunteer Renee Barclay

said the club is thrilled with the

response it has received.

“As a club we believe the antibullying

message is really important

for our entire community,

but especially within sport where

the line can be crossed from banter

to unacceptable abuse,” she

said. “We would like people to

think twice before they speak –

words can have a powerful effect.

We’re sure children, coaches,

players and referees appreciate

encouragement rather than putdowns,

and it would be great to

see our rugby league community

breaking stigmas by lifting up

and supporting our wider community.

“We would love to see rugby

league in Canterbury making

a positive impact and see more

people keen to join our code.”

The club ran a pink disco on

Saturday and has sold candy

floss on the sidelines.

SUPPORT: The Riccarton

Knights 14s team show their

support for PInk Shirt Day

by wearing pink socks and

wristbands.

“Our club is taking a close look

at our own backyard, identifying

our strengths and weaknesses,

and where we can improve and

take care of our own Knights’

whanau,” Ms Barclay explains.

“We want to see both mentally

and physically fit and healthy

members at our club,” she said.

“This is our second year supporting

Pink Shirt Day and we

are already looking ahead to

next year. We are hopeful that

other clubs identify this as an

important message, too, and link

arms with us and join the antibullying

movement.”

The Club Bistro has a tasty new

winter menu. With Mains priced
