A BOLD new initiative for the

proposed multi-use arena has

come from a year 9 student at St

Andrew’s College.

As part of a social studies

government unit, Lachlan Johns

wrote to city councillor Aaron

Keown about his idea of making

the new stadium completely

He presented this proposal to

city councillors on Thursday,

receiving praise from Deputy

Mayor Andrew Turner, who

said the presentation was “an

example of why we should be

absolutely listening to young

people.”

In his proposal, Lachlan said

he wanted to change the way

people view live sports and bring

the comforts of home to the

stadium. “People often say that

the best seat in the house is your

couch, because you can see every

part of the game at once,” he said

during his presentation.

He proposed having a

bluetooth phone service

connected to each seat, which

would allow audiences to replay

scenes they had just watched

live on their phones, look up

statistics, switch camera views

and provide audio from referees,

captains and commentators.

In spite of not making a difference

to the final outcome,

Lachlan said audiences could

get the opportunity to place a

‘public vote’ on television match

official decisions.

After the presentation, Mr

Turner said he would refer

Lachlan’s idea and letter to the

stadium project team.

Plans for

indoor

sports

venue in

Northcote

stalled

• By Sophie Cornish

AN AMBITIOUS project to

build an indoor sports venue in

Northcote may have stalled.

No funding was granted for the

project in the Long Term Plan,

and it is not clear whether the city

council will support it.

Developers Kris Inglis and

Mike Percasky spoke during the

LTP submissions about their proposal

for an indoor sports venue

on Northcote Rd, which could

accommodate up to 20 indoor

courts.

They asked if the city council

would consider purchasing the

facility for $20 million or renting

it. A city council spokeswoman

said last week staff were still

getting in touch with people who

made submissions to the LTP.

Mr Inglis said one option is for

the city council to lease the venue

once it has been built.

“We haven’t got any funding for

it at this stage but we are still talking

to the sporting groups about

how that will all work . . . it’s still

on the cards but we are just working

through a few options at the

moment.” •Turn to page 4

PLANS TO set up an indoor sports centre

in Northcote look dead in the water (see

page 1).

Two businessmen suggested the city

council could buy the facility for $20

million or rent it for $1.5 million to get it off the ground.

But no money was allocated in the recent Long Term Plan

(that’s for projects over the next 10 years).

You can hardly blame the city council. It is cash-strapped and

there’s big sports developments elsewhere to fund.

Speaking of ideas, I suspect we’ll be hearing a lot more of

Lachlan Johns (see page 1).

The St Andrew’s College student has gone to the city council

Great news for Belfast and

Casebrook residents was the

announcement that due to

overwhelming response the 107

and 108 bus routes are not being

axed.

Constituents met with me to

voice their concerns when they

heard these routes were at risk

under Environment Canterbury’s

proposed new options for public

transport. They were worried

about our elderly becoming

socially isolated. One constituent

told me she had deliberately

bought her house on the bus

route for her retirement. Getting to

medical appointments and being

able to go shopping were other

concerns.

Most public transport systems

are subsidised as there is a

recognition of the need to provide

transport options. Solutions need

to balance best use of funding

against providing these services.

The 107 is retained but will

run hourly and the 108 has been

absorbed into an extended 28

service that will have the same,

or better, frequency and a direct

route to the central city. For

details go to Metro Christchurch’s

website and look under the News

tab.

Well done to everyone who

made their voices heard.

I am holding a public meeting

to have a conversation about

the steps we need to take as a

country to transition to a lowcarbon

economy. Climate Change

Spokesperson Todd Muller and

a local solar energy business

operator will be throwing up some

ideas at the “Zero Carbon Bill

Yes? No? Maybe?” public meeting

on Friday 3 August at 7pm in the

Please join us for this important

debate.

I have lodged my petition to save

the Belfast to Pegasus Motorway

extension in Parliament. This

planned highway is the logical

next step to the undisputed gains

made by the Western Belfast

Bypass. I am urging Government

to not let our residents down with

the final stages of this important

corridor.

Weeds may still sink kids fishing day

Organiser calls

for two stage

solution

• By Sophie Cornish

A “SIGNIFICANT cloud of

uncertainty” still hangs over

the popular annual Take a Kid

Fishing event at The Groynes

lakes.

Kids Fishing Charitable Trust

chairman David Denton is calling

for a two

stage approach

to the current

lagarosiphon

weed problem

that has previously

threatened

the event’s

David Denton

future.

Mr Denton

said in a letter

to the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

that its trustees are “extremely

concerned” due to the lack of

clarity around a resolution to

the weed problem. He said the

problem “seriously devalued last

year’s event.”

“The build-up to each years’

event starts 364 days out,

with all arrangements with

“extremely concerned” about the event’s future.

stakeholders needing to be in

place many months prior to the

event,” he said.

The city council has commissioned

a report from environmental

planning and design

consultants, Boffa Miskell,

around possible solutions. It

is expected by the end of the

month.

Mr Denton has asked city

council for the report to include

two stages, covering a short and

a long-term plan.

He hopes the short-term plan

will see the weed cleared by the

end of next month and the longterm

plan will cover general

maintenance and weed control

over the coming years.

“No doubt there will be questions

raised around what we

are requesting and believe the

logical next step is to get all parties

around the table as soon as

possible to discuss stage one and

agree on the go forward,” said

Mr Denton in the letter.

In the past, The Isaac Conservation

and Wildlife Trust has

donated hundreds of salmon

which are released into the lake

for the event. Take a Kid Fishing

has been running since 1988 and

attracts about 5000-6000 people.

Volunteers show the children

how to catch a salmon and how

to clean and prepare them for

cooking.

Previously, Nor’West News

reported the event, set to take

place in October, could be

pushed back until late November

or December because of the

issue.

Two options involving chemical

control have been suggested

as a solution. The work is estimated

to cost about $15,000.

Two locations for two

have been approved for Roto

Kohatu Reserve. However, the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board said the

approval is subject to the final

budget and financial information

being presented at a later

board meeting. The board has

concerns over the estimated

cost of the proposed public

toilet blocks, which will require

new underground services not

currently in the reserve.

PRESTONS RD ACTION

Changes will be made to traffic

management on Prestons Rd

after more than 30 complaints

were received by the city council.

The various complaints were

about the current one-way

system, which is in place while

work on a new sewer and water

pipes for future developments

are completed. The one-way

system will change direction

to allow only west-bound

traffic. East-bound traffic will

be detoured via Grimseys Rd,

QE II Drive and Hills Rd. The

change should reduce delays on

QE II Drive during peak times.

Traffic will still be two-way from

the Grimseys, Prestons Rds

intersection west. The work will

continue until September.

sports venue

plan stalls

•From page 4

“It could take another few

months before it’s really settled.

We’re just working through the

various options.”

However, Mr Inglis said they

were not disappointed. “We

understand there is a lot of

pressure on council budgets

at the moment. We are more

approaching the individual

sports groups, but it would be

fantastic if the council wanted

to somehow be involved but we

understand that there’s a lot of

pressure on the LTP.”

Canterbury Netball and

Mainland Football have shown

interest in the venue.

The developers also suggested

the city council could save

money on the metro sports

facility by scaling back the

number of indoor courts and

invest into the Northcote venue.

The indoor courts could be used

for netball, futsal, basketball,

tennis, badminton and

volleyball

The planned venue could

also feature a cafe, child care

centre, 450 car parks and other

entertainment options such as

10-pin bowling and laser strike.

writes about community

consultation in the suburb

PRESSURE: Simon Britten is encouraging people to give their feedback to ECan and the city

council over issues they feel strongly about, such as the proposed cutting of bus routes in

Papanui.

WITH Environment

Canterbury’s recent adoption

of its Long Term Plan, users

of public transport in Papanui

have been assured that local bus

services will continue operating.

This follows ‘overwhelming’

public opposition to its proposal

to discontinue six routes, including

the 107 and 108 in our area,

and is a positive result for peoplepower

and the impact that vocal

ratepayers can have.

From time to time, when

Think Papanui shares proposals

that are open for consultation or

subsequent city council decisions,

I see comments along the lines of

‘what’s the point’ – the implication

being that consultation is a

box-ticking exercise before our

city or regional council goes

ahead with whatever they’re proposing

to do.

The backdown by ECan on

our bus routes suggests otherwise.

Councils are never going to

please everyone, but a strong response

from the public can have

an impact.

Right now, city council staff

are working on two local projects

that have attracted high levels

of feedback – the Main North

Rd bus priority project and proposed

options for dealing with

increased traffic downstream

from the Christchurch Northern

Corridor.

On the other hand, the proposal

to drop the speed limit

on the high-volume top part of

Cranford St is set to be rubber

stamped after generating fewer

than 50 submissions, with only

nine in opposition.

When’s the next opportunity to

have your say?

I suggest taking a look at

ECan’s upcoming return to a

fully democratically elected

council.

Until Monday July 30, it is

possible to comment on ECan’s

proposed representation arrangements,

which will see the

Papanui Ward forming part of a

Christchurch north constituency

that will vote for two out of the

13-member council.

As we’ve seen with the bus

route backdown, decisions made

by ECan directly impact us at

a local level – be sure you have

your say.

THE FIRST major structure

of the Christchurch Northern

The Winters Rd subway

opened last week so pedestrians

and cyclists can go underneath

the new four-lane highway.

It will also divert them from

the shared QE II Drive path, as

the path between Grimseys and

Work on the subway started in

February last year, and 662 piles

were driven into the ground to

create a solid foundation.

During the Northern Corridor

project, 11 bridges, 13 culverts

and two subways will be built.

Two other subways will also be

upgraded.

The final design for the

shared path will go along QE

II Drive and the new highway

interchange to cross Winters Rd.

From there, the path uses the

new subway to continue eastbound

onto QE II Drive and

Jones won’t resign from board

over facility in Shirley – yet

• By Sophie Cornish

ALI JONES won’t be walking

away from local body politics –

for now at least.

Last year, the Papanui-Innes

Community Board chairwoman

threatened to leave the

board if a budget for the rebuild

of a Shirley community

facility was not included in the

city council’s Long Term Plan.

In the LTP, funding has been

allocated

to urgently

complete

a ‘network

plan’ for

community

facilities, so

potential

facility

ideas can be

Ali Jones

considered within a city-wide

context.

In the mayor’s recommendations,

Lianne Dalziel said the

city council will request staff

complete the plan as soon

as practical, and approved

$170,000 for it in order to

inform next year’s and future

annual plans.

“Potential developments

include, but are not limited to,

WAITING: The site of the former Shirley Community Centre at 10 Shirley Rd. (Inset) – The

community centre before it was pulled down.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

the Shirley community centre,

a multicultural centre, a centre

for Avondale, Burwood, Dallington

area and an Okains

Bay community centre,” said

Ms Dalziel.

Ms Jones considered this a

commitment, and said she will

not be standing down from the

board at this stage.

“I’m not covering my butt

here. If I felt that there wasn’t

any commitment to this community

facility on Shirley Rd,

then I would stand by what I

said. But, at the moment, I see

that as a commitment.”

However, Ms Jones said she

could still resign if no progress

is made. “It’s still open, if we

don’t see the progress on this

site . . . I will stand by my position,”

she said.

Ms Jones said it is important

to note the LTP makes reference

to the Annual Plan next

year.

“That opens up another process

for us to actually debate,

argue, fight for more money

for this particular centre once

we have assessed what the

community needs and wants.”

Christ’s band step up to win Rockquest

• By Julia Evans

THEY’RE CALLED The Subs

because the band is made up of

“bench warmers” from Run77 –

the winner of last year’s regional

Smokefreerockquest final.

Now The Subs have graduated

from the sideline and, in their

debut Rockquest final, they

stripped Run77 – their Christ’s

College counterparts – of the

title at The Foundry.

“When I heard second and

third place read out, my heart

sank – I thought Run77 would

win . . . I thought we hadn’t made

it,” vocalist, rhythm guitarist and

song-writer Jono Stewart said.

“It was unreal, though, it hasn’t

really sunk in yet.” But Jono

did admit the rivalry was a “bit

of a joke” between the bands –

they’re actually good friends.

The Subs are a college poprock

band made up of Jono, Zac

Matson on bass, Humphrey

Bullen playing lead guitar,

Matias Biraben-Clough on

drums and Max Toth playing

keyboard and synth.

They entered the

The carving skill is

called green woodworking,

a tradition that

pre-dates industrialised

Mr Horrell said 18th

example of the carving

technique. They were made from

green timber before being assembled

and shipped to London.

Mr Horrell also runs classes at

Fire rages, homes at risk

Life of an orphan in 1913 Papanui

Papanui Heritage Group

chairman Murray Williams

writes about dealing with

vulnerable children in the

area in 1913

IN OUR era when vulnerable

children are the specific concern

of a Government ministry, it is

interesting to reflect on the way

in which neglected children were

treated a century ago.

One particular local case, first

reported in the Press on October

10, 1913, aroused considerable

interest to the extent that the

details were also published in

the Otago Witness, the Taranaki

Herald and the Marlborough

Express.

A seven-year-old boy had

appeared in the Christchurch

Juvenile Court as the subject of

a hearing; it was alleged that he

‘was not under proper control.’

INSTITUTION: The Presbyterian Orphanage in Blighs Rd was

home to ‘endangered’ children

A police spokesman told the

magistrate that the boy’s father

was “a dirty, good-for-nothing

loafer” who had taught his son to

beg, take part in petty crime and

was not concerned when the boy

stayed out overnight.

The boy had been picked up

several times by the police who

eventually delivered him to

the Presbyterian Orphanage in

Blighs Rd.

This institution had been

opened a year before and

although the boy was not an

orphan, the Reverend Fred Rule

had been prepared to admit

him, as one of the institution’s

objectives was to offer care to

‘endangered’ children.

However, life in the orphanage

did not appeal to this artful

dodger.

In spite of being given a bath, a

set of new clothes and a haircut,

he absconded from the institution

and was observed begging

for pennies in Blighs Rd.

This episode was the background

to his appearance in

court.

When asked by the magistrate

what he wanted to do with his

life, the answer was to “become

a burglar and to shoot the Reverend

Rule.”

In spite of this, the reverend

saw much good in the young

reprobate, describing him as “a

warrior. The brightest specimen

I have ever had to deal with –

good material going to waste.’

Eventually the boy was sent

north to the Stoke Presbyterian

Orphanage, presumably to move

him further away from the

influence of his dysfunctional

family.

This episode, while tragic, does

reveal that, in an era when there

was no central Government

machinery to deal with such a

case, co-operation between the

police, the courts and a churchbased

orphanage network

worked to provide an ad hoc

solution that may have given the

boy a chance for a better future.

Role model visits Rangi Ruru

AN INFLUENTIAL speaker

who received praise and a

laugh from the Queen spoke

to Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

students last week, encouraging

them to follow careers paths

in which women are less

prominent.

Alexia Hilbertidou, 19, was

told by Queen Elizabeth that

she is “doing good work” when

she received a Queen’s Young

Leaders Award last month.

When she was 16, Ms

Hilbertidou founded GirlBoss, a

women’s network of more than

8000 members. It encourages

women into science, technology,

arts and maths careers and

leadership positions.

executives named John than it

has women chief executives. She

said she was striving to change

that. School principal Sandra

Hastie said the visit was exciting

for the students.

“We know about Alexia, our

girls know who she is and how

influential this amazing young

woman is. We all need positive

and inspiring role models. Alexia

is one of ours,” Dr Hastie said.

Ms Hilbertidou recently

returned from a mission with

NASA, and was named a top 30

global teen leader and the most

influential New Zealand woman

under the age of 25 at the 2016

Westpac Women of Influence

Awards.

As a public speaker, she

has spoken to more than

20,000 people from corporate

offices, Government agencies

and schools over the past 18

months.

Harewood School pupils took part in a whole school production to show what they have

learnt about the history of the Harewood area. An audience of more than 550 attended

the production called A Journey to Harewood, which was centred around a school reunion

of the class of 2018 in 2037. The pupils learnt about pre-European settlement and what

life was like for Maori and early settlers. They heard from local speakers and took trips to

the St James cemetery, where the first school started. They looked at the gravestones of

early settlers, recognising a number of local street names. They also visited the museum,

Riccarton Bush and Ferrymead.

Christie.

a tough choice

CHRIST’S COLLEGE track and field

athlete Cody House is spoilt for choice.

The sprinter, long-jumper and hurdle

exponent is wanted at the Oceania Athletics

competition in October and has been

short-listed for the Youth Olympics in

Buenos Aires later in the year.

But he can’t go to both.

“Usually I have I break over the winter

but it’s ended up being really busy,” he

said.

“I don’t think there is a bad choice; it’s

just about finding one which works for

me.”

While he makes up his mind, he is also

contemplating 10 days on the Gold Coast

this month where he will take part in the

DownUnder competition, along with 40

other Canterbury athletes.

“This is going to be both a competitive

trip and also a bit of fun because there

will be time to look at some of the special

features and fun parks, so it will be a combination

of a holiday and a competitive

event. I’m really looking forward to it and

the competition that will be there from

throughout Australia and the United

States.”

House is no stranger to international

meets, having competed at the Oceania

Athletics competition last year with his

good friend and fellow athlete, Sam King.

Two months ago, House went to Port

Vila, Vanuatu, for the Melanesian Games,

which acted as a trial for Australian and

New Zealand athletes hoping to be selected

for the Youth Olympics.

He was third in the long-jump and

fourth in the 200m and 100m.

The scholarship is for an NCAA division

“I did have an option to go to a division

FREE digital

media course,

with NCEA built in

For those looking for a role that

combines artistic and digital talents, then

this outstanding, FREE, entry level course

has just been announced by local Training

Provider Trainme, for those wishing

to pursue animation, graphic design,

photography or digital media as a career.

The course covers introduction to

multi-media techniques such as video

production, drawing, animation and

photography. Students will create their own

design concepts and collaborate with other

students on creative projects.

This course is FREE to students aged 16

to 19 and they only have to have NCEA 1

to join. Students without NCEA 1 can be

admitted, if they show artistic or digital

aptitude.

“Many feel that school is not working for

them or they left without qualifications,”

says Rhys Pollard, Marketer with tertiary

educator Trainme. “While not necessarily

academically minded, they do have artistic

talents and are very much into digital

technology.”

“This FREE six-month Trainme course,

combines these in a very hands-on,

NOR’WEST NEWS

practical way, giving them an intro into

various digital media. This way, they can

decide which direction to pursue as their

career focus.”

“As an NZQA approved programme,

NCEA credits are built in, so if they apply

themselves, they can graduate with a New

Zealand Certificate in Arts and Design

Level 2, as well as gaining credits towards

NCEA level 1 or 2,” says Pollard.

“NCEA results will depend on how many

credits they bring to the course to start

with, but as it’s a fun subject, it won’t feel

like school at all.”

Successful graduates from this

programme could pathway into higher

study in media arts, which could include

graphic design, video production,

photography or one of the many emerging

digital-based careers. Places are limited, so

students are encouraged to apply as soon as

they can.

Enrol now to start 23rd July. Contact

Trainme at their Addington campus for

Your agent, Your home, Your future

LICENSED SALES CONSULTANT REAA 2008

Ok we know you’ve heard it all before - surprise package, bonus features...

yeah, yeah! But this little unit has some quite unique extras that you’ll want

to take a look at. Nicely located in St Albans, this ground floor unit has a

generous, fully fenced garden. Sunny and sheltered this outdoor space gives

the unit the feel of a much larger townhouse. Added to this the tandem

garage has internal access, both the size and convenience of access being

features you might expect at a much higher end of the property market.

Living, and dining are spacious and open plan and the kitchen adjoins these

areas with a breakfast bar between. The two double bedrooms are well

separated from the communal areas and the bathroom incorporates space

for laundry facilities. A heat pump in the living area ensures economical

year round comfort. The interior is livable but certainly not glamorous. Rent

it out as it is, or re-carpet for an easy overnight transformation. Perfect for

first home buyers or investors, the extras on offer here are definitely better

than a set of steak knives!

the Mt Pleasant and surrounding environment.

and the Kaikoura’s, the Estuary and the Pacific

Love the

Freedom

Join us for our Christchurch Open Days

At Summerset retirement villages, you’ll find a

wide range of homes specifically designed for the

over 70s. Choose from one of our lovely, modern,

purpose-built homes, then make it your own.

All of our homes are designed with accessibility

as a priority.

As a Summerset resident, you’ll enjoy easy access to

village facilities and community spaces. And there’s

support on hand if you need it.

We’d love to see you at our Open Days and have

the opportunity to show you around one of our

Christchurch villages and the beautiful show

homes we have available.
