For almost 35 years, the Ilam resident, who lives on Karo Pl, has selflessly volunteered to help those around him and finally two former neighbours decided it was time he was recognised. Mr Hamilton was an award recipient at the Fendalton-Waimairi- Harewood Community Board’s community services awards this month after being nominated by former neighbours Stacey and Rachel Armishaw. Mr Hamilton’s volunteer work began at the Lamb of God Christian Community in Burwood in 1983, and he’s been involved with the group ever since. However, after the earthquakes, he was forced to moved from his home in Edgeware and started afresh in Ilam. There, Mr Hamilton became the neighbour we all dream of. •Turn to page 8 OPTION ONE Alcohol ban extension Ilam, Burnside set to get tighter restrictions Page 3 Page 7 Budding farmers St Bede’s College students have success in competition Bridalshow Consultation process slammed over Cranford St upgrade • By Sophie Cornish A CITY councillor has slammed the Christchurch Northern Corridor alliance team’s consultation process over the Northern Arterial Extension and Cranford St Upgrade. Mike Davidson said he was disappointed in the process and that for one of the consultations, the Papanui-Innes Community Board was only informed about it one day before it closed. Cr Davidson is a member of the community board, which has also expressed several concerns over the project. “Is is actually unbelievable and unacceptable,” said Cr Davidson at a council meeting last week, where councillors approved the plan for the remaining section of the $240 million motorway on Cranford St. A spokeswoman from the CNC alliance team and city council referred questions from Nor’West News about the consultation process to the NZTA. It was not able to respond before deadline. Mayor Lianne Dalziel commented saying she felt “nervous” about the project, however, moved the motion to make the decision. •Turn to page 4 18B MAIN NORTH RD, PAPANUI | PH 354 6000 | WWW.SHOSHA.NZ
