End of the road for green grocer

After more than 20 years of

supplying fresh produce to the

eastern suburbs on Stanmore

Rd, The Green Grocer closed

it doors for the final time on

Friday.

The city council began a full

reconstruction of North Avon

Rd in January which has since

left businesses struggling to

bring customers into their stores.

The Green Grocer owner

Dianne Pratt said she didn’t

want to go, but because of the

roadworks the business has

suffered a “huge decline.”

“We are around 50 per cent

down each week and we can’t

sustain it. It is below break even

for us,” she said.

Burwood

Hospital

bus route

may stop

short of

Brighton

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HOPE IS fading for people who

catch the bus between New

Brighton and Burwood Hospital.

Environment Canterbury has

prepared an “alternative option”

in its draft Long Term Plan after

public opposed its original plan

to axe six of its lowest performing

bus routes.

But a new route combining the

135 Burwood Hospital and 150

The Palms bus routes is planned

to terminate at Taiora: QE II Recreation

and Sport Centre.

It means the 135 Burwood Hospital

route will no longer travel

into New Brighton.

Currently the bus service runs

from Prestons Rd through to Burwood

Hospital and along Beach

Rd to Marine Parade.

The proposed change has been

met with opposition. New Brighton

resident Hilary Wilson said

the planned route change would

be “terrible” as she always found

the bus convenient, particularly

when she had a knee replacement

at Burwood Hospital.

A WELL deserved accolade for New

Brighton clubbie James Gaskell.

He was named coach of the year at the

recent Canterbury surf lifesaving awards.

Sports reporter Jacob Page has a chat to

him on page 10 today.

Gaskell is the New Brighton club’s surf boat coach and it was

their success at the nationals that earned him the award.

New Brighton won the open men’s open short course for the

second time and the women’s open long course title for the first

time in club history.

Gaskell, 40, has been involved with New Brighton for more

than 25 years and has been an integral part of loosening the

grip North Island crews have had on surf boat races at the

nationals.

Bromley’s stinky sites investigated

• By Bridget Rutherford

MORE THAN 60 sites in

Bromley have been investigated

for potentially causing a stink

– but none were warranted bad

enough for action.

Environment Canterbury and

the city council have carried out

an odour investigation project

in the suburb, which currently

gets the most

complaints in

Christchurch.

The project’s

findings are

being analysed

and will be used

Ross Trotter

to help further

investigations

as odour complaints

continued.

City council solid waste manager

Ross Trotter said it

was created to help provide a

register of the industrial sites

in Bromley to assess “potential

odour risk”.

Of the 270 sites surveyed, 60

were noted as being activities

or industries that could create

odour. Seventeen of those had

already been noted as being “at

risk.”

“During the survey undertaken,

three sites’ activities were

noted for further investigation to

Environment Canterbury,” Mr

Trotter said.

“These activities were reviewed

by a senior resource management

officer and no pollution

event was raised, as he was

confident there was no further

concern.”

Bromley has long had an

odour problem.

The city council-owned organics

processing plant Living Earth

on Metro Place, which deals

with the contents of green bins,

has been the source of most of

the complaints.

In 2016, a putrid stench

wafted over the suburb plaguing

residents and forcing Bromley

School to close for two days,

though the source was never

determined.

Christchurch West Melton

Banks Peninsula zone manager

Steve Firth said the investigation

meant they could determine

the “character” of the different

odours and how to deal with

them in the future.

Since January 1, Bromley has

had the highest number of odour

complaints in the city.

ECan stats show there had

SMELLY: Bromley

with many of

complaints having

been about 108 reports of odour,

and 58 odour events.

An odour event is when complaints

are received for the same

location during any 24-hour

period.

Fifty-one of the odour events

were from Metro Place, where

Living Earth is, three came from

Senior Place, two from Tanya St,

and one each from Wickham St

and Francella Place.

Mr Firth said of the 16 substantiated

odour events, many

were not deemed offensive, while

the source was unable to be

found at others.

Jones joins school zone battle

• By Sophie Cornish

A CALL has been made to the

minister of education to ensure

suburbs in east Christchurch are

no longer tested “to the point of

breaking.”

In a letter from the Papanui-

Innes Community Board

to Minister Chris Hipkins

last week,

chairwoman

Ali Jones called

for him to

reconsider the

proposal which

would exclude

the suburbs of

Ali Jones

Richmond and

Shirley in the

new enrolment

zone for Shirley Boys and

Avonside Girls’ High School.

The two schools, which will

relocate to a shared campus

on QE II Park next year,

are required to create a new

enrolment zone.

The board of trustees led

consultation in April, based on

a document with a ‘draft zone’,

which included the suburbs

of Burwood, Parklands, New

Brighton, South Brighton and

Southshore.

It excludes currently in-zone

suburbs Richmond, Shirley,

included in the new zone for Shirley Boys and Avonside Girls’

High Schools.

Avonside, Dallington and

Edgeware.

It was met with public

outcry from people who felt

“abandoned” and asked why

suburbs with no historical

connection to the schools were

included, while others were left

out.

In the letter, Ms Jones

said some families who

chose to remain in the area

at “considerable hardship”

are no longer assured of

enrolment for their children

and are “frustrated by the lack

consultation, transparency and

commitment by the MoE.”

“The local communities in

Richmond and Shirley feel

abandoned following their

exclusion from the zones

that will contain the schools

their children have attended

and supported pre and postearthquake.”

“This situation adds to the

stress and upset for families

remaining in an area that was

hard hit by the earthquakes,”

said the letter.

Residents have gathered

more than 1900 signatures

in an online petition against

the exclusion as well as

delivering about 3000 leaflets

to surrounding areas, alerting

people to the issue.

Signs have also been placed on

fences of suburbs which may be

excluded saying: ‘Don’t leave our

kids out in the cold’ and ‘Haven’t

our kids lost enough in the

quake already?’

The MoE will make the final

decision and deputy secretary

sector enablement and support

Katrina Casey said at this stage,

no decisions had been made.

“We are in the process of

assessing recommendations

from the two boards, which

includes feedback from the

Clock tower

repairs to

start this week

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

REPAIRS ON New Brighton’s

historic clock tower will begin

this week.

Paint is set to be removed

from around the clock face followed

by the removal of the face

itself.

Earthquake and historical damage

repairs of the tower will follow

shortly afterwards.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said the tower’s

paint has tested positive for lead

so it is “imperative” to remove it

safely before work starts on drilling

into the concrete for the clock

face removal.

It is estimated the repairs will

be completed by September.

Structural engineers had started

investigations about the damage

the tower sustained while scaffolding

on the tower has been in

place since February.

Mr Rutledge said a concrete

report had been received but the

project team and structural engineers

need time to read and digest

the information.

The clock tower is a historic

landmark in New Brighton with

its foundation stone laid on December

14, 1934.

It won’t happen overnight: Creating

wealth through New Zealand property

by Heather Morris

‘It won’t happen overnight…’ takes you through the process of getting started

in property investment in New Zealand. Mike Pero and David Weusten step you

through almost everything a successful property investor needs to know to succeed,

from the basics of budgeting through to tips on selecting property, exercising due

diligence and managing the buying process itself. They also cover managing debt

and cash flow as these are critical elements to successful property management.

Those who invest in property are often criticised in the media for being greedy,

self-serving and a blight on the country. Yet without the people looking to create

wealth for themselves through property investment, and providing the capital to

house those who can’t or chose not to own their own property, it would be left to

the government, local bodies or charitable organisations to provide rental housing

resulting in higher taxes for all New Zealanders. Mike Pero and David Weusten offer

the essential handbook to equip new property investors and provide reassurance

to those already in the market. Although it won’t happen overnight with the wisdom

and experience this book provides you can be assured it will happen!

Rugby Rebel

by Christopher Tobin

Rugby Rebel investigates a sensational accusation made against brilliant All

Black winger Duncan McGregor that he sold team secrets which cost the Original

All Blacks their unbeaten record on the famous 1905 tour of Britain, France and

the United States. What made it worse was that McGregor’s Accusers were some

of his fellow All Blacks. But has his name been unfairly besmirched? This book

tells McGregor’s ex¬traordinary and previously untold story. In doing so, it delves

deeply into an explosive and controversial period in New Zealand rugby history, the

early 1900s, when ‘shamateurism’ was rife and the sport was split apart by the

emergence of rugby league. Rugby Rebel shatters myths, offers new insights and

provides enough information for the reader to decide whether McGregor was hero,

or as his deractors claimed, villain.

The Leisure Seeker:

Now a major motion picture starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland.

Ella and John have shared a wonderful life for more than sixty years. Now they’re

on the run from their doctors and middle-aged children, who just want them to go

gently into that undignified night of old age. In their trusty camper van, the pair

embark on a forbidden vacation of rediscovery along Route 66. Though time is

catching up with them, Ella is determined that together they’ll make it to their final

For the first time ever, Lily shares her life and her own deepest secrets,

proving that every single one of us experiences pain and heartbreak. We all

understand what it’s like to live in the light and in the dark. For Lily, it’s about

making it through to the other side, where you love what you see in the mirror

and where you embrace yourself just as you are. She’s learned that all it takes

is one person standing up and saying something for everyone else to realise

they’re not alone. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Lily’s honest voice will

inspire you to be who you are and say what you feel. It’s time to claim your

AN UNTENANTED “eyesore”

Stanmore Rd being a main

He said the site was overgrown

Chance to have say on red zone

• By Kurt Bayer

THE BLANK canvas created by

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes

could house riverside bars,

floating houses, a gondola, and

eco-sanctuaries, according to

shortlisted plans up for public

consultation.

A new exhibition highlighting

possible uses for the old

residential red zone in the

quake-hit east of the city

opened on Saturday.

Regenerate Christchurch

wants the city’s feedback on its

options for the Ōtākaro Avon

Corridor Regeneration Area,

including the “Green Spine” –

an 11km public open space following

the winding river from

the city to the sea.

Branching off the Green

Spine and wetland areas, connected

by a network of trails,

paths and footbridges, three

areas, coined “reaches” are

proposed, where land uses

would be combined into various

themes.

The Red Zone Futures

exhibition, at 99 Cashel St in

the city’s Cashel Mall, runs

until June 30.

DISRUPTION: Businesses in North Avon Rd are feeling the

effects of road works.

End of the road

for green grocer

•From page 1

While Mrs Pratt and her

husband Chris will continue

to sell produce at the Riccarton

Market on Sundays, she described

the store their “bread and butter,”

and were sad to be leaving.

“We were always a very

buoyant business and it is just

like someone has turned the tap

off,” she said.

Pegasus Post was told at least

three businesses are considering

leaving the area.

City council’s planning and

delivery manager Lynette Ellis

said it is aware the road works

can impact the community

which it takes seriously.

“We are working with the

contractor in North Avon Rd

to minimise disruption where

possible through programming

of works and ensuring that

parking within the shopping

centre remains visible and

accessible,” she said.

Richmond Village Book and

PostCentre business owner Alan

Spooner said the city council set

temporary traffic lights across

the entrance way to his car park

meaning no one could enter.

He said the road works

have had a “drastic affect” on

businesses with no customers

coming into his shop, meaning

no income.

Mr Spooner said prior to the

February 22, 2011, earthquake

Richmond had “good, sound”

businesses.

“But being right on the edge of

the red zone we immediately lost

at least half of our population,”

he said.

He is calling for residents to

“walk through the door and

spend money.”

“They have got to support

us or they just won’t have local

businesses,” Mr Spooner said.

Hibbards Butchery owner

Steven Joseph said business is

down by 15 per cent, but is just

going to have to “battle through

the tough times.”

“When I used to work in

Australia they did road works,

they at least gave us free

advertising in the paper . . . that

would help out quite a lot,” he

said.

COMING HOME: The QE II Masters will return to the Taiora: QE

II Recreation and Sport Centre when it opens. ​

Swim group to

return to QE II

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SWIMMING group holding

on for “grim death” to survive

since the earthquakes is

anticipating its move into the

new Taiora: QE II Recreation and

Sport Centre.

The QE II Masters will return

to its former swimming pool

after getting down to as low as

four members over the past seven

years.

The group will celebrate its first

swim in the pool on Tuesday,

June 12, following the opening

over Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Formed in 1983, the group

was a “powerhouse” for master’s

swimming and received great

support from local surf clubs,

member Sam Hannifin said.

When QE II closed after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

the group had about 50 members.

The group trained in three

different sites – moving first to

the Pioneer Recreation and Sport

Centre, then Jellie Park Recreation

and Sports Centre before

moving to Christ College’s pool.

By the time it moved to the

STUDY @ SIT

CHRISTCHURCH

Graham Condon Centre in 2012,

the group had whittled down to

about five members.

But Mr Hannifin said the

group never lost hope it would

return to QE II.

Numbers have since grown

during the group’s time at

Graham Condon, and when it returns

to QE II there will be about

25 members.

Over the years, the group has

attracted “great coaches” including

former QE II swimming

teacher Rosemary Bishop, who is

known to many parents as their

children’s coach, Mr Hannifin

said.

Other well-known public figures

to coach the group includes

Canterbury District Health

Board member Jo Kane.

The current coach is Sammy

Winward, who up until last

season swam for national teams,

specialising in open water events.

The group is welcoming people

to come along and try a class

with no obligation on June 12 at

8pm.

Training will be held on Tuesdays

and Thursdays, 8-9pm.

ONE OF the first lifeguards at

the old QE II pool is returning to

its replacement to run a club for

swimmers aged over 50.

Willie Pitama, 67, started

work at QE II pool on February

9, 1974, a week after the

Commonwealth Games were

held at the complex.

Forty-two years ago he

founded The QE II 50 Plus and

Early Bird Club and now he is

re-establishing it at the $38.6

million Taiora: QE II Recreation

and Sport Centre when it opens

this week.

The club will meet on

Monday, Wednesday and Friday

mornings from 6.30am to

9.30am, and the first get-together

will be on June 6.

“It’s like coming back after I’ve

been away on a holiday. It just

feels the same,” Mr Pitama said.

Mr Pitama developed the idea

as a young lifeguard after seeing

a need for a social group for

older swimmers.

At its peak, the club had

300 members, but since the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

the numbers had dwindled to a

core group of 30 who still meet

for lunch once a month and hold

annual Christmas parties.

Club co-ordinator Shirley

Forbes, who is 81 and still goes

to the gym and aqua jogs, said

it’s a great time for new members

to join.

She and her husband Bruce

became regular members of the

club after they retired.

Gaskell named top surf coach

• By Jacob Page

JAMES GASKELL’S integral

part in New Brighton’s national

surf boat racing success has seen

him earn coach of the year at the

annual Canterbury awards.

The three New Brighton crews

Gaskell helped to coach

came away with two national

titles and a silver

medal, which saw him

honoured at the Canterbury

surf lifesaving

awards of excellence.

New Brighton won

the open men’s open

short course for the

second time and the

women’s open long

course title for the first time in the

club’s history.

The up-and-coming under-19

women’s crew earned a silver

medal in the girls short course.

The 40-year-old has been part

of the club for more than 25 years,

and says the accomplishments

are a nod to the improvement of

South Island crews.

“It’s very much a North Island

dominated sport so to have the

three South Island clubs achieving

James Gaskell

well at nationals is a big thing,” he

said.

“To send three boats to nationals

and get all of them on the

podium was a great achievement

and proof that we can foot it with

the best in the country,” he said.

Gaskell said winning the

award was recognition not

just for him, but for the

whole club.

“I’m honoured to win it

but it’s a real sign that the

club is going really well.

Gaskell started swimming

at the club at the age

of 14 but transitioned to

surf boats at 20.

While he still competes,

he said he enjoys coaching

for the opportunity to give back.

“It’s a chance to stay involved

with a really good club and ensure

that it continues to grow,” he said.

“It’s time I gave my body a break

from being battered during races,

too.”

He said the club showed they

could match it in the open grades

while building up young crews,

ensuring there was always a succession

plan.

ON THE

WATER: Scott

Martlew’s

silver medal

in the paracanoe

World

Cup KL2

200m will

hopefully be a

step towards

gold at the

2020 Tokyo

Paralympics.

Parklands para-athlete

paddles to silver at

World Cup in Hungary

• By Jacob Page

Scott Martlew

SCOTT MARTLEW has had

to call on all of his multiple

sporting talents to fulfil his

sporting aspirations.

The talented 25-year-old

from Parklands has

just returned from the

para-canoe World Cup

in Hungary, where he

earned a silver in the

KL2 200m.

It is just reward for

an former Shirley Boys’

High School student

who initially missed

out on Rio Paralympic

qualification by 100th of

a second. However, the

suspension of Russian athletes

gave him a last minute paralympic

reprieve and he finished

eighth in the A final of the KL3

200m.

Martlew had a full leg amputation

in 2010 following a muscle

tear after a knock to the leg during

a SBHS rugby curtain-raiser

for a Crusaders match.

The injury became infected

with a flesh-eating bacteria.

Martlew is a former national

champion surf lifesaver

and dragon boat racer.

These skills, along with

help from his mates,

helped him adapt to his

new sport.

“I was always big into

water sports, even before

my injury, and while I

went through some dark

times, it was my mates

who really encouraged

me to get back out there.”

Martlew said being reclassified

into the KL2 200m

event made a medal a realistic

outcome.

“It was pretty surreal to stand

on that podium after a long road

with plenty of ups and downs,”

he said. Martlew also finished

fourth in the VL3 200m at the

World Cup.

He aims to win gold in both

events at the Tokyo Paralympics

in 2020. But his next focus is the

world championships in Portugal

in August. “There will be some

long training days on the Avon

River and Kerrs Reach,” he said.

“It often feels like I leave home

in the dark and I return in the

dark after a long winter training.”

Martlew has been a largely selffunded

athlete throughout his

career and he wanted to thank

family and friends who had

supported him throughout his

career so far. He would also like

to thank the New Zealand Rugby

Foundation, Canterbury Orthopaedic

Services, Cyril Smith

Legacy Fund, Canoe Racing New

Zealand and Parafed Canterbury.

SBHS cap off week with

bonus point victory

• By Jacob Page

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High got a

much-needed bonus point win

away from home on Saturday

when they beat Timaru Boys’

High School 33-26 in the UC

Championship.

It capped off a good week for

the first XV, which also beat

Marlborough Boys’ College

24-17 at home in their annual

school sports exchange fixture

last Tuesday to kick-start their

campaign after two narrow

defeats.

Christ’s College warmed-up

for their top-of-the-table clash

against Christchurch Boys’ High

on Thursday with a convincing

29-5 win over Lincoln High at

Hagley Park North.

Christ’s dominated the first

half in wet conditions to lead

22-0 at the break and effectively

end the contest.

Rangiora High caused the

upset of the round when they

toppled top four contenders

Nelson College 16-15.

St Thomas’ scored a try in the

final play of their game to edge

St Andrew’s College 24-22 and

leave STAC with just one win

after four rounds.

St Bede’s proved they were

genuine semi-final contenders

after they went to Blenheim and

ground out a 29-22 victory over

Marlborough Boys’ College.

St Bede’s now sit third while

MBC are in fourth.

CBHS had the weekend

off after they racked up 102

unanswered points against

Mid-Canterbury Combined on

Wednesday.

Waimea Combined had no

trouble dispatching Aoraki

Combined 23-7 to ensure they

were firmly entrenched in the

middle of the table.

SBHS will welcome Rangiora

HIgh School on Saturday. St

Thomas’ host TBHS, St Andrew’s

will look to find form

against Aoraki Combined, St

Bede’s travel to Nelson to face

Waimea Combined, Lincoln

welcome Mid-Canterbury Combined,

while Marlborough Boys’

College will host Nelson College

in their annual grudge match.

All eyes will be on the Christ’s

College v CBHS game at The

Upper on Thursday. Kick-off will

be at 2.40pm

Linwood Medical

Centre offering

new Sick Kids Clinic

With winter around the corner, cold

and flu season is now upon us. As a result,

general practices tend to be busier and

it can often be more difficult to get an

appointment.

Linwood Medical Centre is trying to

change that.

Beginning 5 June, the medical centre

will be providing a Sick Kids Clinic to

streamline visits for children with acute

health needs. At the end of each morning

and afternoon, appointments will be

available for children under 14. These

appointments will be with a nurse who

will be able to provide letters for schools

and advice to parents to help get their

child well.

General Practitioners (GPs) will be

available to see the child if the nurse

has additional concerns or believes a

prescription is needed.

Parents will need to call the medical

centre to schedule an appointment for

their child. Enrolled patients will have

priority and the visits will be free as

always to children under 13. If a nonenrolled

child needs to be seen, the cost

will be just $20.

The clinics will streamline appointments

for sick kids and provide the best service

possible for as many children as need to

be seen.

Linwood Medical Centre is located

upstairs in Eastgate Shopping Centre next

to The Loft and the Linwood Library. The

Centre provides extended hours general

practice, with it’s own social worker, and

specialised nurse services like B4 School

Checks, diabetes education, and smear

clinics. Linwood Dispensary, Physio

South and Bubs4u Midwifery Care Nurse

Maude district nursing, and CDHB Older

Persons health are also located inside the

Centre.

Next door, The Loft

www.theloftchristchurch.org.nz provides

numerous social services.

Linwood Medical Centre, visit

PSYCHOLOGICAL

THRILLER - ‘A PICASSO’

FOLLOWING on from past productions ‘Turn of

the Screw’ and ‘e Woman in Black’, locally

based independent theatre group, NO Productions

eatre Collective presents its latest offering, A

Picasso.

Photo credit: euns Verwoerd

Written by Jeffrey Hatcher, A Picasso is a fastpaced

psychological thriller set in an interrogation

room in Nazi-occuppied Paris.

Directed by Michael Adams (‘Turn of the

Screw’), this intense piece about art, sex, politics

and truth is full of unexpected twists and

surprises.

jo.fuller@starmedia.kiwi

e story line follows a cat-andmouse

game between the great artist

and a captivating female cultural attaché

from Berlin.

“Which of these three paintings are

genuine, Señor?”…

When Miss Fischer (played by

Nataliya Oryshchuk) reveals that the

genuine Picasso pieces are destined not

for an exhibition but a burning of

degenerate art, the artist (played by

David Allen) begins a desperate

negotiation with his Nazi opponent,

who turns out to be his secret admirer.

‘A Picasso’ takes place at the

Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o

Waiwhetū in the Philip Carter Family

Auditorium on Friday June 8 at 7.30pm

and Saturday June 9 at 2.30pm and

7pm. Tickets $27 (concessions $22).
