‘Precious’ bundle of joy

New perspective

on life for

community

board member

• By Sophie Cornish

LINDA CHEN has a new

outlook on life after giving birth

to her first child, Sebastian.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

member and her husband Robin

welcomed the baby boy on April

10 in what she described a

“precious experience.”

“Having a child has not

only been a precious

experience for me,

as a woman, but it

has also changed the

way I see the world.

I now see the world

as a mother – the

agendas and issues

in our ward have

become a lot more

personal now.”

Sebastian is also

the first grandchild

of both sides of the

family, “so he is

getting a lot of love

and attention,” said

Mrs Chen.

The couple first

met while at primary school at

the former Kendal School in

Harewood.

“We are really happy that we

have ended up settling back at

Harewood and that we will be

raising Sebastian here. Both

Yaldhurst

residents

prepare

for legal

battle over

quarry

• By Anan Zaki

YALDHURST residents

will this week lodge an appeal

and prepare for a costly court

battle to challenge a decision to

allow quarry expansion in the

area.

The decision made by city

council and Environment

Canterbury appointed hearings

panel allowed quarrying

company Road Metals to

increase their Yaldhurst

operations to 100m from

houses.

To lodge the appeal, the

residents formed a new

group named the Yaldhurst

Environment Group – Hau Ora

Inc.

Chairwoman Soraya Nicholas

said the appeal would cost the

group $100,000 and it received

support from various members

of the community.

“We’re probably looking

at mandatory mediation

happening in September and

potentially the Environment

Court appeal case will be very

late this year or early next year,”

Ms Nicholas said.

The group does not want to

ban quarrying in the area.

THAT’S A Martin Hunter special on the

front page today.

What I mean is the photo of community

board member Linda Chen and her baby.

It was taken by Hunter, still one of the

best photographers in the country in my humble view, and it

certainly captures the moment! No doubt it’ll be one for the

scrapbook – electronic presumably these days.

And of course congratulations to Linda and her husband

Robin who first met when they were youngsters at primary

school. Small world.

You have to feel for Yaldhurst residents (page 1) fighting the

quarry that will be right on their doorstep.

The need for roading materials won out over health and now

residents will have to dip deep into their pockets to keep fighting.

New site sought for Hornby facility

Denton Park

groups pledge

to help find it

• By Anan Zaki

HORNBY advocates have

pledged to work with the city

council to find a new site for

the planned multi-million

dollar community facility in the

suburb.

The Save Denton Park

group and the Greater Hornby

Residents Association

said

that together

with city council

staff, they want

to find a location

universally

popular with

Mark Peters

Hornby residents.

The move comes after a

hearing panel recommended to

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board that a facility

should not be built at Denton

Park.

“We now eagerly await the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board confirming

this recommendation as soon as

they are able to, and then move

WIN: Denton Park supporters Lynette Anderson, Brian Brodie, Marc Duff, Ross Houliston and

in an expedient timeframe to

re-selecting a new, more suitable

location for this desperately

needed facility in the Hornby

area, for the good of the Hornby

people,” said Save Denton Park

chairman Mark Peters.

He echoed Riccarton Ward

city councillor Vicki Buck’s

concerns that children in

Hornby urgently need a local

swimming pool to learn to

swim.

Residents association

chairman Marc Duff said there

was no opposition to building a

“leisure centre” in Hornby.

“It is wonderful that the

council have given the

community the opportunity to

re-address the location but

what is now important is the

residents really get involved,

support a location and work

with the council speedily so

there are no more delays to the

project.

School’s

litter work

recognised

BURNSIDE PRIMARY School

has been recognised for 25 years

of service in an environmental

programme which targets litter.

The school was presented the

award at Keep Christchurch

Beautiful’s annual

award ceremony.

It is one of only

two schools to

have participated

in the Schools

Environment

Shirish

Paranjape

Programme since

it’s began in 1994.

The programme

challenges schools

to keep their grounds and surrounding

area litter-free.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board member

Shirish Paranjape said the school

sets a great example which other

schools and community groups

should follow.

“It is so pleasing and gratifying

to note that a little school in our

area has tirelessly participated in

this programme run by Keep New

Zealand Beautiful for schools every

year for 25 years . . . The staff

and students of the school deserve

our applause for their work.”

Residents prepare for legal battle

•From page 1

“All we’ve ever asked for is for

the Canterbury District Health

Board to genuinely have a seat at

the table and for their voice to be

heard.

“We’re asking for a minimum

500m setback from quarry

boundaries to any rural properties,”

Ms Nicholas said.

Templeton

residents are

also prepared

for a long

fight, should

a planned

quarry in their

area be given

Garry Kilday

the green light.

Templeton

Residents Association

chairman Garry Kilday

said if Fulton Hogan’s plans for

a resource consent application is

granted, the association would

also consider taking legal action.

“We’ll take whatever action

we can. We may not be the only

ones that are considering this.

“It’s wrong and there will be

lawyers and I believe someone

will sue these people,” Mr Kilday

said.

The only deterrent in taking legal

action was the costs, he said.

He believed the residents could

win the Resource Management

Act process, when the company

lodges an application.

“However, the problem we

have is that if we win the RMA

and their application is turned

down, they will go to the Environment

Court, which will also

cost us,” Mr Kilday said.

But the residents would do

whatever they can work together

to protect their habitat, he said.

“We’re fighting for our way of

life here, we’re fighting for the

healthiness and the cleanliness

of our environment.

“That’s why Environment

Canterbury is here in the first

place, to protect us from this sort

of thing.”

Fulton Hogan has faced resistance

from Templeton residents

after it put forward a plan for a

170ha quarry on Dawsons, Curraghs

and Jones Rds in January.

ECan is yet to receive a resource

consent application from

Fulton Hogan. The company

announced in April that it would

not lodge an application before

July and is awaiting the results of

Create authentic Italian

dishes with locally

made fresh pasta

Anyone that enjoys cooking Italian food knows fresh pasta is the only way to go

to achieve that authentic flavour and texture.

Residents in the western suburbs are fortunate to have a fresh pasta producer

right on their doorstep – Pasta Vera. The business was founded 17 years

ago by New Zealander Phil Bennett, a baker by trade, who had fallen

in love with Italy and its cuisine after travelling around the country

and experiencing the Italian food culture.

On his return home he set up Pasta Vera, initially wholesaling to local

Christchurch restaurants.

As the business grew, Phil and his wife and business partner Linda

developed the product range from simple fettuccine and ravioli to include

many other types of pasta such as cannelloni and gnocchi as well as pesto and

pasta sauces.

Recently they expanded their business further with the opening of their new,

custom-built factory in Wigram Road, Sockburn, which includes a factory shop

offering the full range of fresh pasta and other authentic Italian food items so

you can create delicious Italian meals at home.

For those days when you are short of time and need a quick, tasty meal for the

family, or you have unexpected guests, they offer re-heat and serve meals. These

include the very popular baked lasagne, which is available as a single serve meal

or as a catering tray for groups – ideal for family occasions.

Other items regularly available include end-of-lines, samples and

special restaurant samples at discount prices.

The Pasta Vera Factory Shop is located on the corner of Wigram

Road and Musgrove Close. With plenty of off-street parking

available, it’s quick and convenient to pop in and pick up your

fresh pasta and sauce or ready-made meals.

Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 8.30am-5pm with a

late night Thursday until 6pm, and Saturday 9am-1pm.

THE FIRST stage of a cycle

route that will eventually

connect Halswell and the central

city is nearing completion with

the last few intersections and

crossings opening soon.

Construction work started

on the Quarryman Trail cycleway

last October. The first

4.6km stage of the route, from

Moorhouse Ave to Victors Rd,

is expected to be finished by

the end of June. In the next few

weeks, traffic signals will be

turned on at two new intersections

and two new controlled

crossings for cyclists and pedestrians.

A pedestrian and cyclist crossing

from Rydal St to Sparks Rd

near Hoon Hay School became

operational last week. Signals at

the Lyttelton St and Sparks Rd

intersection will be open from

May 28 and traffic lights will go

on at Sparks Rd and Hoon Hay

Rd from June 5.

Another pedestrian and cyclist

crossing has been built at the

intersection of Barrington St

and Strauss St and this will open

in June, once the new shared

path connecting Roker St and

Barrington St is finished.

The contractors, Isaac Construction

Ltd, have completed

the intersection upgrades using

‘deep lift asphalt’. This is a

relatively new technique where

the asphalt is a thicker layer

than usual and allowed faster

construction. It is also stronger

and more long-lasting, reducing

future maintenance, the city

council said.

Contractor Fulton Hogan

has worked on the section of

the Quarryman’s Trail between

Moorhouse Ave and Roker

St which is already open, and

includes two new and three

upgraded intersections.

The final stage of the cycleway,

from Victors Rd to Te Hapua in

Halswell, will be constructed at

a later date subject to funding

availability.

The city council’s planning

and delivery transport manager

Lynette Ellis, says the new intersections

will benefit motorists

as well as improving safety for

pedestrians and cyclists.

“They will help ease congestion,

particularly at peak times

at the busy intersections of

Lyttelton St and Sparks Rd and

at Hoon Hay Rd and Sparks Rd

which were previously roundabouts

and now have signals. The

zebra crossing outside Hoon

Hay School has been replaced

with pedestrian signals which

will make it much safer for

children.”

Long term, the cycle route will

provide a safe way for people to

commute between Halswell and

the central city, she says.

The Quarryman’s Trail is part

of a network of Major Cycle

Routes, being built across the

city by the city council to link

shopping centres, businesses,

schools, parks and popular recreation

destinations.

“Having it means pressure is

A new water supply main

The work came with a number

of challenges, he said.

“We had to deal with trenching

during one of the wettest winters

on record, several significant

road closures, challenging

ground conditions and pressure

to finish work in the Nga

the construction of the sports

hub.”

Existing pump stations in the

area were also upgraded as part

of the project.

The scheme has the capacity to

carry more than 11 million litres

Hornby and want to see it stay

that way

It was great to be able to help

out and ensure that locals could

participate in the process and

submit their voice to the city

council, and massive efforts were

put in by organisations like the

rugby club and the ‘Save Denton

Park’ group.

The city council received more

than 1400 submissions which

HUNTER ​

made it obvious that this issue

struck a real chord – 84 per cent

of those submissions opposed

the change. It was incredibly

heartening to then see that the

city council hearings panel has

listened to the Hornby community

and recommended against

making changes to Denton

Park’s reserve status.

I know that many people in

Hornby will be feeling very

relieved with this outcome.

The final say still lies with the

community board but I’m very

pleased that locals have been

heard.

It has been a big win for everyone

who has rallied around to

save their park, and it’s important

now that we also start exploring

other options for the site,

such as the land available at Kyle

Park, to make sure that Hornby

gets the state-of-the-art facility

that our communities deserve.

Gary Knight shares his

thoughts on shops giving up

plastic bags

It is encouraging to note the

responsible attitude by business

entities in taking a possible step

to help reduce the environmental

plastic waste footprint.

It is commendable that

Papanui and Hornby Mitre 10

MEGA stores, along with all 128

nationwide stores and also

Hammer Hardware, have

jointly agreed to phase out plastic

bags from their checkouts from

July.

To reach such a unanimous

decision highlights the integrity

of the owner-operators of these

home improvement retailers.

Accolades are also extended to

Ferrymead Countdown and 10

other nationwide stores initiating

the same process initially prior to

its instigation in all 182 stores.

This pro-active move by these

major home improvement and

supermarket retailers, bears

testimony to their level of

community awareness in striving

to help reduce the demeaning

effect of plastic waste on our

environment.

Readers respond to a city

council proposal for more

cycle lanes and fewer car

parks on Memorial Ave

Bruce Marshall – $3 a litre

for gas might make this a brilliant

idea.

Dale Clutterback – The

city council needs to start

spending rates more wisely.

Spend on essentials and stop

finding new ways to waste

PHASE OUT:

Shops around

the city are no

longer offering

plastic bags.

our money. Can’t wait to vote

again.

Nicholas Smeaton –

Having seen the results of

other cycle lanes, this is an

incredibly stupid idea. The

city council needs to put the

whole business on hold until they

come up with a far less intrusive

layout.

Byron Clark – There will be a

tonne of angry comments but the

reality is we’re moving towards

the end of the age of the private

motor vehicle, and our cities

should be ready for that change.

Pleased the city council is future

focused.

Ashley Cook – What

about starting using trams/light

rail as something other than a

heritage trinket in Christchurch?

Build it now, so you don’t need

to build it when it’s desperately

needed.

‘Eugenius’ scores

scholarship at

top US university

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

student Eugene In has been

accepted into the Stanford

University medicine summer

internship in the United

States.

The 17-year-old,

nicknamed ‘Eugenius’,

has been interested in

Stanford University’s

medicine faculty in

California for many

years. “Ever since I used

to watch Grey’s Anatomy

I guess,” she

said.

She will

fly to the US

in July.

“Last year

I was lucky

enough to

be in the

United

States for

the International

Problem

competition

and got

to see the Stanford campus for

myself. It was inspirational. It’s

not only a very prestigious university,

but it’s well-known for its

holistic approach to innovation

and it prides itself on embracing

diversity. I really like that.”

FUNDRAISER:

Rangi Ruru

students

helped

raise more

than $500

for Eugene

In (above)

to study at

Stanford

University.

SCHOOLS

Forty-six per cent of students

who attend Stanford are from

outside the US.

Eugene’s classmates have

helped her fundraise for the

internship which comes with a

hefty price tag.

Rangi Ruru community

council head Isabella

Carter pitched the idea

to the council after

hearing about Eugene’s

opportunity on Facebook.

The idea was

to sell gelato

left over after

the students

annual ‘love

week’ in

February.

As the

cost of the

gelato was

already

covered,

any

money

made could

go straight to

Eugene.

“We hashtagged

it

#HelpASisterOut

as

our theme at school this year is

#sisterhood. It was amazing; we

sold out in one lunchtime and

raised $530.”

Eugene is continuing to fundraise

and will attend Stanford

from July 9-20.

A PLAY about twin boys

separated at birth has been

performed by St Andrew’s

College students.

More than 1300 people saw

the school’s senior production

of Blood Brothers, which had a

cast of 33 as well as 10 crew and

10 band members.

Rector Christine Leighton

said the show was met with

“spontaneous standing ovations

WITH THE help of the

governor-general, Christchurch

Girls’ High School officially

opened its new performing arts

centre on Friday.

Dame Patsy Reddy unveiled

the plaque for the centre with

head girl Stephanie Lester and

principal Pauline Duthie.

The school’s previous auditorium

was built in 1986, when

the school moved to its current

Maitai St location from Cranmer

Square. It was damaged beyond

repair in the earthquakes.

The new centre has an auditorium,

drama studios, solo and

ensemble music practice rooms,

a photography studio and classrooms.

It will be used as a classroom

by art, drama and music students.

Mrs Duthie said opening the

centre demonstrated the positive

progress that has been made

since the earthquakes.

of the audience appreciation.”

“The powerful story stirred

much emotion,” she said.

“It is with amazement and

incredulity that parents, friends,

and staff have witnessed the

maturity and depth of emotion

and understanding that these

young actors have brought to

their characters on stage.”

Director Laurence Wiseman

said bringing Blood Brothers to

life involved more than 80 individual

stories coming together

to tell one.

“An amazing feat in and of

itself. Cast, crew, production

team, band members, worked

collaboratively towards a common

goal.”

New project to provide

more social housing

in Hornby

Over the next few months, Housing

Plus Charitable Foundation is establishing

a housing project in Lesley Keast Place,

Hornby alongside four other not-for-profit

entities.

The foundation’s new build, which is a

steel fame construction, comprises eight

duplex units housing two tenants each,

and three two-bedroom cottages set in

landscaped grounds.

The eight duplex units belong to Housing

Plus, while the three cottage units will

be owned and managed by the Methodist

Mission in conjunction with Housing Plus.

They will be ready for tenanting in July.

Housing Plus is a new trust arising out of

work undertaken by the Beckenham Community

Housing Trust (BCHT), which

oversees a project at Lancewood Courts in

Beckenham.

The model, which was developed in partnership

with the Christchurch City Council,

has been operating for over 16 years and

has proved successful in housing people

that benefit from being in a secure environment

with low-level support, but do not require

24-hour care.

“These are people who often fall through

the cracks of good housing provision and

because of relative poverty and other issues

can end up in very poor, unsatisfactory

housing in unsafe environments,” Housing

Plus spokesperson Margaret Willis says.

“The combination of high-quality housing,

independent living arrangements and

low-level, on-site support at Lancewood

Courts has provided a safe and solid base

for tenants, who are then freer to attend to

other issues in their lives.”

Residents’ comments from the latest external

report on the project reflect this, she

says. They include:

“It feels like my home. Like a sanctuary

from the outside world.”

“I came here depressed and discouraged

and isolated. I was totally alone – not

now…I love to come back here. You can be

yourself.”

“I am much happier here. No one hassles

you. It’s peaceful and quiet… I feel privileged

to be here.”

Artist’s impression of the new build in Lesley Keast Place

Ms Willis says tenants often move into

some form of voluntary or part-time work.

“We have seen outcomes including reduction

in the use of medication and significant

improvement in general wellbeing,”

Ms Willis says.

“Housing Plus is looking forward to establishing

the Hornby development as a

place where people can feel safe, belong and

develop a sense of home and wellbeing.”

Encouraging men to get healthy

• By Anan Zaki

THE LENS will be focused on

Christchurch men next month,

as Men’s Health Month kicks

off.

Sport Canterbury have teamed

up with generous local activity

providers to create a month of

free activities for over-60s to

celebrate the month.

“Men’s Health Month is a

chance for men across New

Zealand to start talking more

about their health,” Sport

Canterbury chief executive

Julyan Falloon said.

“What we’re trying to do is

raise that awareness and translate

that awareness into behaviour

change,” he said.

Sport Canterbury’s Community

Groups Strength and Balance

project leader Rebecca Logan said

men have usually been shy to join

group activities.

“Often guys think group

exercises are for women, but

these classes have benefits for

everyone.”

Miss Logan encouraged men

to make the most of the month of

activities.

“Come and give it a go

and if you enjoy it, buddy up

with another participant to

become a regular class attendee.

Group exercise offers many

benefits to men, including

improving your strength and

balance, which will enable you

live stronger for longer and keep

your independence.”

Burnside High teen set

to dance in San Diego

BURNSIDE HIGH School

teenager Manaia Davies is off

to San Diego next month with a

team of 22 dancers representing

New Zealand at an international

competition.

The 13-year-old was asked

to be in the team by Kiwi

choreographer, Kiel Tutin, who

has worked with stars such as

Jennifer Lopez.

Manaia, who has been dancing

since she was three-yearsold,

says she was “shocked” by

the invitation and is looking

forward to competing in the

Body Rock Junior event.

She’s been travelling up to

Auckland each weekend for

practices. “It’s really hard-out,

it’s full hands-on training and

we run the set over, over and

over again,” she said.

The year 9 student spends

most of her spare time training

or teaching.

Having only been told she

was on the team a few weeks

ago, Manaia is now trying to

raise funds to cover the costs of

attending the competition.

She will hold a fundraiser,

with other performers, at the

Darfield Garden Centre on

Sunday from 1-5pm.

Tickets are $15 for adults and

$5 for children under 12-yearsold

and can be purchased from

the garden centre, Hororata

cafe, Yello Shack Cafe,

Glentunnel Garage or at the

door.

Donations can also be made

National schools team call-up for Zoe

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

ZOE MCMEEKEN is making the

right impression in her Halswell

14 premier boys football team, that

both national selectors and the

Mainland Pride are taking notice.

Zoe has been named in the

under-15 secondary schools team

to travel to Sydney, from July 8 to

14.

She is also part of the Mainland

Pride wider-training squad.

The team will play three games

against New South Wales age group

teams.

The 14-year-old winger has been

outflanking the boys for the past

three years and said playing against

them had only positive effects on

her game.

“I really enjoy it because they’re

a lot more physical when they go

in to challenge you and I think it

forces me to match it and protect

the ball more,” she said.

The Lincoln High School student

first started playing at age of five at

a Rolleston ‘first kicks’ event.

A talented runner and cross

country athlete, it wasn’t until Year

9 when football became her focus.

“I did enjoy running and cross

country and it’s helped me in my

position in football but I enjoyed

the team aspect of football more

than being an individual in running,”

she said.

Zoe said she has aspirations to

be a Football Fern in the future but

she wanted to make the most of

every opportunity given to her,

She said training alongside

players she looks up too and who

are twice her age has been a great

experience.

“I’m realistic that I don’t expect

to make the Pride squad this year

since I’m so young but I know the

trainings are making me a better

player,” she said.

As for the boys, they know what

to expect

“I’ve been playing for Halswell

long enough that I think they are

used to me by now,” she said.

IMPACT: Zoe McMeeken (right) looks to have a bright future in the sport after making the

New Zealand under-15 football team and the Mainland Pride wider-training squad.

Neale, is eager to make her presence felt at the South Island

St Thomas’ scored a try in the

final play of their game to edge

some boxing to try to rehab it,”

the former rugby flanker said.

“The shoulder got better the

more I trained with Phil and

then one day he asked if I wanted

to have an actual fight and I

thought I’d give it a go,” she said.

Sophie now has a six win, one

loss record in the under-54kg

class and has given up rugby.

“Boxing is my focus now and

I play a bit of touch rugby for

speed and fitness,” she said.

She said accepting you are

going to be hit in the face from

time-to-time was all part of the

sport.

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

want to punch them back but, of

course, there’s the technique and

strategy you need to think about

during a round.”

The Templeton resident said

one of the biggest challenges was

finding girls in her weight-class

and age.

“I’m hopeful of a bout at South

Islands, even if I have to box

someone older or in a different

weight class – it’s all experience,”

she said.

Sophie’s aim is to win a national

title at the New Zealand

Golden Gloves event on October

3 at the Hornby Working Men’s

Club.

All eyes on CBHS v Christ’s UC champs match up

ground out a 29-22 victory over

St Bede’s now sit third while

MBC are in fourth.

Photo credit: euns Verwoerd

Written by Jeffrey Hatcher, A Picasso is a fastpaced

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
