when she made friends with Kati and Neo the Keas. Neo is one of the most inquisitive birds at Willowbank and is first<br />

to check out every person who comes into their home. The now sold-out programme allows kids to work alongside<br />

the keepers, helping with feeding, watering and cleaning the enclosures.<br />

Lions<br />

club<br />

admits<br />

women<br />

for first<br />

time<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

WOMEN HAVE joined the<br />

Ferrymead Lions for the first<br />

time since the group was formed<br />

41 years ago.<br />

Rosemary Lory, Ann Newsom,<br />

Jenny Godden and Ann<br />

Finnemore recently became the<br />

first female members of the club<br />

at the recent annual induction<br />

of new members and officers,<br />

known as ‘the change over meeting.’<br />

Vice-president Bernie Godden<br />

said it added an extra special<br />

note to the annual event, held at<br />

the ‘Lions Den’ (aka the club’s<br />

meeting rooms in Ferrymead.)<br />

He said the change had been<br />

driven by current president Bill<br />

Newsom (Ann’s husband) “who<br />

decided it was about time we did<br />

it.”<br />

Mrs Godden, who is Bernie’s<br />

wife, said the club had made her<br />

feel extremely welcome.<br />

THERE’S A top rugby league story on page<br />

15 today, involving names from the past<br />

and ones to watch for the future.<br />

Halswell club teenagers Tanner Smith<br />

and Cooper Te Hau are carrying on a family<br />

friendship which spans generations.<br />

Their grandfathers Norm Geddes and Peter Smith played with<br />

and against each other in the 1970s, and their fathers, Arthur<br />

Geddes and Pat Smith shared a similar friendship and rivarly on<br />

the field.<br />

Pat’s name is of course synonymous with Canterbury rugby<br />

league. It’s his name on the trophy presented each year to the<br />

winning grand-final side.<br />

I remember following the Papanui Tigers as a kid in the 1970s,<br />

who Norm Geddes played for.<br />

A very handy sort of player.<br />

Opening cycleway in style<br />

PARKING<br />

A PARTY at Linwood Park<br />

celebrated the opening of the<br />

second stage of a cycle route that<br />

will connect the central city with<br />

Sumner.<br />

A community barbecue,<br />

children riding bikes and scooters,<br />

and bicycle-powered fruit<br />

smoothie makers were part of<br />

the upbeat occasion marking the<br />

second section of the Rapanui to<br />

Shag Rock cycleway being ready<br />

for action.<br />

City councillor and chairwoman<br />

of the infrastructure,<br />

transport and environment committee<br />

Pauline Cotter formally<br />

opened the new route on Friday.<br />

She said the new section,<br />

which passes through a treelined<br />

median on Linwood Ave,<br />

would provide a safer and a more<br />

direct route for cyclists, helping<br />

children and teenagers bike to<br />

school.<br />

“We know that making cycling<br />

safer encourages more people<br />

to choose to cycle, whether it’s a<br />

commute to work, school, shops<br />

or as a recreation choice. I think<br />

this section of the Rapanui Shag<br />

Rock cycleway is arguably the<br />

most scenic in the city to date,<br />

and all credit to the design team<br />

who have taken advantage of and<br />

preserved the beautiful natural<br />

features of Linwood Ave,” Cr<br />

Cotter said.<br />

SCOOT: Linwood Scout Group children celebrating the cycleway opening on Friday.<br />

The project involved constructing<br />

2km of shared pathway, along<br />

with storm water, lighting and<br />

landscaping improvements.<br />

The signals at Chelsea St,<br />

Hargood St and Dyers Rd have<br />

also been upgraded.<br />

The route passes through the<br />

median strip of Linwood Ave<br />

under 65-year-old elm trees<br />

with thousands of daffodil bulbs<br />

planted on either side of the cycle<br />

path.<br />

Great care was taken during<br />

the construction of the new<br />

cycleway to protect native fish in<br />

the Linwood Canal.<br />

About 3665 sq m of porous<br />

pavers have been used to preserve<br />

the trees’ root systems.<br />

Another 150 new trees are<br />

currently being planted along the<br />

length of Linwood Ave.<br />

NZ Transport Agency Regional<br />

Director Jim Harland said<br />

cycleways were a proven way<br />

to improve the health of a city,<br />

reduce congestion and lower the<br />

cost of infrastructure.<br />

“When the cycleway is fully<br />

completed, it will also provide<br />

access to recreational areas,” Mr<br />

Harland said.<br />

Southshore couple<br />

McMaster & Heap<br />

Veterinary practice<br />

Another heAP Vet in the<br />

fAmily….<br />

Our son Connor has<br />

just been accepted<br />

into the Veterinary<br />

Programme<br />

at Massey in<br />

Palmerston North.<br />

Steve and I are<br />

super proud as we<br />

know how hard he’s<br />

worked these past<br />

5 months to make<br />

the cut. A big part of the selection process<br />

now is a weekend of interviews involving real<br />

life situations and personality testing which<br />

accounts for a large percentage of your final<br />

grade. This is new but I think essential in<br />

choosing the kids with the right set of skills<br />

and personality traits to move into a very<br />

select, challenging and not easy profession.<br />

In our experience the best vets we have<br />

encountered were not the cleverest kids<br />

by any means. The unforgettable students<br />

were relatable and practical, enjoyed solving<br />

problems quickly and talking to people,<br />

cared about animals in general, loved the<br />

team environment and were hard workers.<br />

You have to have fantastic work ethic in this<br />

profession and not be a<br />

complainer –<br />

the hours are<br />

long, the days<br />

throw at you<br />

many real life<br />

emergency’s<br />

constantly but<br />

the rewards<br />

personally are<br />

huge. Its not<br />

a job – it’s a<br />

way of life and<br />

it’s a privilege<br />

to care for<br />

pets and their<br />

owners.<br />

All our 3 three sons have loved animals<br />

from day dot. All their lives they have<br />

grown up with cats and dogs and horses<br />

(through my parents). All three boys have<br />

always been kind, caring and respectful<br />

of all our pets and taken responsibility<br />

for them. Our pets have come away on<br />

holiday with us and we are not complete<br />

as a family without them. Right from small<br />

children they spent a fair bit of time at the<br />

vet clinic, whether it be afterhours callouts,<br />

watching their dad operate on eyes, coming<br />

in to medicate and feed sick patients in the<br />

weekends, helping me clean and feed our<br />

cattery cats on public holidays or being an<br />

extra pair of hands at a caesarian. They have<br />

never resented the amount of time we spend<br />

at the clinic and they have always wanted to<br />

hear about interesting cases and be involved.<br />

Up until this year Connor was at UC Berkeley<br />

in San Francisco on a tennis scholarship,<br />

playing for the Cal Tennis team and studying<br />

an undergraduate<br />

degree in<br />

sciences. He spent<br />

18 months of a 4<br />

year scholarship<br />

there and loved it<br />

but had decided<br />

he’d had enough<br />

of tennis and<br />

wanted to give<br />

Veterinary science<br />

a crack. Connor had given his life to tennis,<br />

first playing at age of 3 and I think he’d simply<br />

had enough. Time for a change and to move<br />

forward with his life. He could have finished<br />

his Undergraduate degree at Berkeley but<br />

then he still needed to do the first semester of<br />

prevet at Massey to gain entry into the course.<br />

So he decided at Christmas to enroll in prevet<br />

and put his Berkeley qualification on hold. He<br />

loved studying at Berkeley – ranked the 6th<br />

Best College in the world. He can finish his<br />

undergraduate studies back there whenever<br />

he wants.<br />

A lot has changed since Steve and I were at<br />

Vet school back in 86 and 87. Many of my<br />

classmates are now lecturers and the Vet<br />

faculty has had a massive much needed<br />

revamp. The campus is much the same<br />

and from what Connor has reported<br />

the campus food is still average – main<br />

problem being “not enough food” plus<br />

no one cooks like his dad.<br />

Believe it or not, Connor has the same<br />

room in the same hostel his dad 31<br />

years ago.<br />

The campus<br />

is pretty and<br />

Connor is<br />

enjoying<br />

exploring all<br />

the old places<br />

in town his<br />

dad and I<br />

did on a<br />

Saturday<br />

night. It<br />

hasn’t<br />

changed<br />

much in nearly 30 years.<br />

Its going to be great having Connor in the<br />

same country for the next 4 or so years. I’m<br />

sure he’ll get lots of visitors. Another “ Heap”<br />

one day at McMaster & Heap, and I know for<br />

sure he’ll not disappoint. Here’s to a fantastic<br />

succession plan. It gets to stay in the family<br />

for the next 60 years or so. We bought the<br />

practice in 1999 – I wonder what it will look<br />

like in 2099. Probably a lot different but I hope<br />

its still called McMaster & Heap, even though<br />

I’ll be long gone!<br />

HURDLES: Southshore couple Dylan Wood and Charlotte Donne have been<br />

get consent after drawn out battle<br />

The Christchurch Coastal<br />

Residents’ United group say a<br />

restricted discretionary activity<br />

rule, recommended by the<br />

replacement District Plan independent<br />

hearings panel, was left<br />

out when the plan was finalised<br />

last year. The group is made up<br />

of coastal residents and experts.<br />

Without the discretionary<br />

rule, under the District Plan new<br />

developments or intensification<br />

of land use in the High Flood<br />

Management Plan area is to be<br />

avoided.<br />

Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board deputy chairman Tim<br />

Sintes said leaving the rule out<br />

may have been a mistake and he<br />

is working with interested parties<br />

to put it right.<br />

He said for residents to buy a<br />

section of land and be told they<br />

can’t build or get their money<br />

back was an “extremely distressing”<br />

position to be in.<br />

A city council independent<br />

hearings panel decision on the<br />

rule was scheduled to be made<br />

on Friday but was delayed and<br />

will not be out until Monday<br />

next week.<br />

It comes as Regenerate<br />

Christchurch has started public<br />

consultation with Southshore<br />

and South New Brighton residents<br />

on how to solve rising sea<br />

level issues. MPs met last month<br />

to help solve residents’ problems<br />

over getting resource consents.<br />

Christchurch East MP Poto<br />

Williams said MPs will decide<br />

on what their next action will be<br />

based on the decision made by<br />

the independent hearings panel.<br />

Miss Donne and Mr Wood<br />

were originally told by the city<br />

council a building consent would<br />

be granted in February.<br />

But after agreeing to sign<br />

a waiver under section 72 of<br />

the Building Act 2004 in their<br />

property’s certificate of title, the<br />

consent was granted last month.<br />

Mr Sintes said by signing the<br />

waiver, the city council cannot<br />

take the blame if anything was to<br />

go wrong with the property.<br />

Miss Donne said if she hadn’t<br />

signed the waiver, the couple<br />

would have had to go down the<br />

road of getting a resource consent<br />

as well.<br />

She said it was “daunting”<br />

signing the document as it made<br />

them uncertain as to how it<br />

could affect them in the future in<br />

terms of insurance.<br />

RISK:<br />

Residents in<br />

Southshore<br />

face building<br />

consent<br />

issues due to<br />

being in the<br />

High Flood<br />

Management<br />

Plan area.<br />

Mr Sintes said in the last few<br />

weeks, residents in the High<br />

Flood Management Plan area<br />

have been telling him they have<br />

had difficulty getting insurance.<br />

Miss Donne said she feels<br />

lucky to have a building consent<br />

in the coastal area.<br />

“Some people would say we are<br />

crazy investing in our first home<br />

here, but we love the beach lifestyle<br />

and wouldn’t live anywhere<br />

else.”<br />

She said the extension could<br />

have been built before her baby<br />

was born. It is due on September<br />

25. The couple now won’t begin<br />

the project until summer. Their<br />

home, referred to as a “beach<br />

shack”, is currently 70 sq m.<br />

“Not living in such a small<br />

place that your work clothes<br />

smell of last night’s roast lamb<br />

because the wardrobe is near the<br />

kitchen will be nice,” she said.<br />

They were aware they were in a<br />

flood zone and contacted the city<br />

council before engaging in the<br />

project in about November.<br />

Miss Donne said the city council<br />

initially told them they would<br />

need higher floor levels to allow<br />

the consent to go ahead. But<br />

then they began to get unclear<br />

answers.<br />

She attended several community<br />

board meetings and went<br />

to Mr Sintes to resolve the issue<br />

before the city council proposed<br />

the couple signed the waiver.<br />

But Miss Donne acknowledged<br />

the long process was not entirely<br />

the city council’s fault as the couple’s<br />

engineer had moved away<br />

without telling them, leaving<br />

them “hanging for months”.<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Promoting well-being of elderly<br />

Spreydon-<br />

Cashmere<br />

Community<br />

Board member<br />

Lee Sampson<br />

talks about the<br />

board’s<br />

age-friendly<br />

initiative<br />

I’M VERY pleased to announce<br />

the community board will be<br />

among the first local bodies<br />

in New Zealand to launch a<br />

recognised age-friendly initiative<br />

aimed at promoting the wellbeing<br />

of our older people.<br />

It also aims to create a greater<br />

awareness of the opportunities<br />

and challenges facing our ageing<br />

populations.<br />

The initiative was formally<br />

launched this month at a forum<br />

for the Older Adults Network<br />

through the interim working<br />

party, and will follow a similar<br />

format to the World Health Organisation’s<br />

‘age-friendly world’<br />

concept.<br />

Presentations given at the<br />

launch by Office for Seniors<br />

director Diane Turner, Age<br />

Concern Canterbury chief<br />

executive Simon Templeton and<br />

board member Helene Mautner<br />

really energised the room and<br />

ALL TOGETHER: A new Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board initiative aims to promote the<br />

well-being of older people.<br />

set a great tone for the break-out<br />

discussion and brainstorming<br />

held later.<br />

We know a huge amount of<br />

work is already happening in our<br />

area, especially through agencies<br />

such as Age Concern, but the<br />

pressures and gaps are only going<br />

to grow with longer life expectancies<br />

and increasing demands.<br />

In 20 years, more than 25 per<br />

cent of the population will be<br />

over 65 – so it’s critical we collectively<br />

adjust our mind-sets and<br />

front-foot the issues and opportunities<br />

this presents.<br />

The challenges discussed<br />

included loneliness and social<br />

isolation, improving mobility<br />

and public transport, the lack<br />

of appropriate housing, tackling<br />

ageism and individualism, along<br />

with the strains for many on<br />

fixed incomes.<br />

No doubt part of the solution<br />

will be increasing the level of<br />

collaboration and promoting<br />

stronger connections for the<br />

sector, as well as enabling more<br />

opportunities for residents to stay<br />

connected and active – in fact<br />

research shows those people who<br />

stay active live longer.<br />

It’s early days, but we are really<br />

excited by the potential. The next<br />

step will be the formation of a<br />

local steering board comprising<br />

about six to eight persons. Essentially<br />

this will be our ‘think<br />

tank’ responsible for developing<br />

the initial structure, establishing<br />

the action plans and our prioritisations.<br />

•If you are interested in<br />

being involved, steering<br />

board nominations are<br />

being sought until the end<br />

of <strong>July</strong>. Email lee.sampson.<br />

Low-Cost Pensioner<br />

Housing is Trust focus<br />

For 45 years and counting, the Kenneth<br />

F. Weaver trust inc. has been providing low<br />

cost pensioner units for Cantabrians. located<br />

throughout St. albans and edgeware areas,<br />

the twenty nine units which the trust represents<br />

were a dream of founder Kenneth F. Weaver<br />

which became a reality.<br />

the humble and very private community<br />

service benefactor, the Kenneth F. Weaver<br />

trust, inc. bears his name and shares in<br />

the legacy of the prominent Christchurch<br />

businessman. Maintained by a board of<br />

experienced and supportive trustees, the trust<br />

values its years of assistance to the dozens of<br />

pensioners it has been able to serve.<br />

“all those years ago, i felt a strong desire to<br />

support pensioners throughout the city where<br />

i’ve grown up. Having been born in rakaia<br />

and although i have travelled the world, leaving<br />

home at 15 to join the merchant navy, i came<br />

back to start my family several years later.” He<br />

shares. “then upon returning to Christchurch, i<br />

saw a need and felt prompted to do something<br />

about it.”<br />

“i have worked in many industries and<br />

became a businessman who was fortunate in<br />

their investments and business ventures. i have<br />

learned a lot about people and identified a way<br />

to support them. all those years ago, i saw a<br />

need for affordable housing in the pensioner<br />

segment and decided to do something about it.<br />

“i looked at the available central government<br />

schemes and applied for some funding. there<br />

was a lot of paperwork and many questions,<br />

but the ministry saw the value in my goal and<br />

helped me launch the trust. i had set up a<br />

private trust and to this day, my understanding<br />

is that the Kenneth F. Weaver trust inc. is the<br />

only private trust that has been supported<br />

through ministry channels.”<br />

the Kenneth F. Weaver trust inc. well-earned<br />

reputation lives by the motto – For the Benefit<br />

of others and their goal is to offer rental security<br />

for life.<br />

How the unit process works is that a unit<br />

only becomes available when a vacancy<br />

occurs. Most of the residents have been there<br />

for decades. Back in the late 1970’s when the<br />

doors opened, the rent per week was $11.25.<br />

Now forty five years later it has only risen to<br />

$155 a week, for a single person, 1 bedroom<br />

unit and we feel very good about the ability we<br />

have had to maintain and keep our rental costs<br />

as low as possible. We’re not in this to make<br />

a big profit, but to help serve our community<br />

while maintaining our costs.<br />

all the trust units are well maintained, and our<br />

residents and management team take pride in<br />

keeping them in top condition. the gardens are<br />

maintained by residents and a gardener.<br />

each of the units provide one or two<br />

bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen, laundry and<br />

bathroom facilities.<br />

the residents develop a close knit<br />

community and support for each other which<br />

provides comfort and peace of mine for each<br />

resident. there is no medical care on site, but<br />

the trust units have doctor rooms close by.<br />

Interested in applying?<br />

applicants must:<br />

- Be over sixty<br />

- Have a genuine housing need<br />

- Have less than $25,000 in cash<br />

(excludes car or furniture)<br />

at this time the trust is taking applications<br />

for their waiting list. Apply online at<br />

Banks Peninsula walkways<br />

could get bi-lingual signage<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

SIGNAGE FOR place names on<br />

all Banks Peninsula walks and<br />

reserves should be in both Maori<br />

and English, a group developing<br />

the Head-to-Head Walkway<br />

says.<br />

The group has asked the Banks<br />

Peninsula Community<br />

Board<br />

to recommend<br />

the city council<br />

institute the<br />

change and also<br />

consider extending<br />

bi-lingual<br />

Jed O’Donoghue<br />

signage to all parks and reserves<br />

in Christchurch.<br />

Head-to-Head Walkway<br />

working group chairman<br />

Jed O’Donoghue said Banks<br />

Peninsula was of particular importance<br />

because of the specific<br />

cultural values that existed in<br />

particular areas.<br />

“Each place has its own level<br />

of cultural significance and a<br />

lot of that is built into the place<br />

names. It means a lot to the local<br />

runanga and iwi and I think it<br />

(is positive) for our whole society<br />

to get used to place names in<br />

both languages.”<br />

Community boards were<br />

BI-LINGUAL: The head-to-head walkway working group<br />

wants all place names on the walkway signs to be written in<br />

both English and Maori.<br />

recently given Maori names<br />

by the city council to reflect<br />

an increased awareness of the<br />

language and culture.<br />

A city council spokeswoman<br />

said the Ngāi Tahu relationship<br />

team created the names “that reflects<br />

the wants of the rūnanga,<br />

and the desire to keep a Māori<br />

worldview towards naming each<br />

community board.”<br />

Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū/<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board means the storehouse of<br />

Rākaihāutu. Rākaihāutu was<br />

one of the founding ancestors of<br />

Waitaha, an older South Island<br />

tribe, and explored the South<br />

Island’s mountains.<br />

The rest of the boards’ new<br />

names begin with Wai, which<br />

means waters.<br />

Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board’s is Waikura<br />

– wai for waters and kura for<br />

leader.<br />

Once complete, the head to<br />

head walkway is planned to run<br />

from Lyttelton to beyond Purau.<br />

If bi-lingual signs were to become<br />

policy across the city, Mr<br />

O’Donoghue said: “We wouldn’t<br />

expect every sign to be ripped<br />

out overnight. It would just be as<br />

replacement was needed.”<br />

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Should<br />

signage on walkways<br />

be in Maori and English?<br />

“At the induction ceremony<br />

everybody was incredibly pleased<br />

and excited.”<br />

She had met the other three<br />

women beforehand to share ideas<br />

on how they could contribute and<br />

at this stage there is a garage sale<br />

planned in a couple of months<br />

time.<br />

Mr Godden said it was a huge<br />

step forward for the club to have<br />

women members.<br />

Mrs Lory said she had<br />

previously been a member of the<br />

Omarama/Twizel Lions Club<br />

which had mixed membership.<br />

“I can see the benefits; we are<br />

organisation was founded in<br />

grew, women – particularly Lion<br />

spouses – embraced the Lions’<br />

mission of service and began<br />

forming auxiliary clubs, formally<br />

recognised in 1975 as the Lioness<br />

Programme.<br />

The programme continued<br />

Most areas have accessible<br />

safety surfaces.<br />

“We have also included<br />

“The design has been<br />

peer reviewed by the<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

A 39-YEAR-OLD man accused<br />

of vandalising Hornby’s Leslie<br />

Park will appear in the district<br />

court next month.<br />

He was originally set to appear<br />

last Thursday, but the court<br />

hearing was delayed to August 2.<br />

No explanation was given for the<br />

delay.<br />

Police apprehended the man on<br />

<strong>July</strong> 5 after allegedly being caught<br />

doing donuts at the home ground<br />

of the Hornby Panthers.<br />

He was charged with<br />

operating a motor vehicle<br />

causing sustained loss of<br />

traction, failing to stop, wilful<br />

damage and driving with excess<br />

breath alcohol.<br />

This was the second time in<br />

two months that the park was<br />

vandalised. Damage to the field<br />

in the earlier incident forced the<br />

Panthers to play away from their<br />

home ground for five weeks.<br />

The latest incident came just<br />

one week after the team returned<br />

to the field.<br />

Hornby Panthers club president<br />

Brent Tomlinson said it was<br />

“heartbreaking” to see the fields<br />

damaged again.<br />

Mr Tomlinson said the<br />

club was using the field under<br />

restricted conditions imposed by<br />

the city council to prevent turf<br />

damage and the vandalism made<br />

an already difficult situation<br />

worse.<br />

The park was given a<br />

$144,000 turf upgrade for the<br />

Rugby League World Cup last<br />

year.<br />

The city council has<br />

cleared the team to return to<br />

the field following the latest<br />

incident.<br />

Leslie Park.<br />

Slower speed for Richmond Hill<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

RICHMOND HILL will have a<br />

restricted speed zone of 40km/h<br />

imposed from October as the<br />

city council attempts to address<br />

safety issues in the area.<br />

The 100 section-plus Greenwood<br />

Farm subdivision has generated<br />

additional traffic on the<br />

hill suburb’s narrow roads and<br />

increased community concern<br />

over driver<br />

and pedestrian<br />

safety.<br />

The restricted<br />

area starts at<br />

the bottom of<br />

Richmond Hill<br />

Rd where it<br />

Sara<br />

Templeton<br />

meets Nayland<br />

St and stretches<br />

up to the summit.<br />

Nayland St is not included.<br />

However, a trial 30km/h speed<br />

limit there and on Wakefield<br />

Ave is expected later this year.<br />

Public consultation showed<br />

majority support for the<br />

measure, although a number<br />

of the 68 submission criticised<br />

the lack of footpaths in the<br />

area.<br />

“It is very irresponsible for<br />

the city council to allow a new<br />

subdivision with hundreds of<br />

more vehicle movements per<br />

SLOWER: The speed limit on Richmond Hill will be lowered to 40km/h. ​<br />

day and not upgrade the road<br />

and footpath,” said one<br />

submitter.<br />

“I would think this would<br />

actually be illegal. When we<br />

drive up and down the road, we<br />

daily see young school children<br />

in dark uniforms having to<br />

walk on the unlit road. It is just<br />

a matter of time before one of<br />

these children will be killed by<br />

a car.”<br />

City council manager planning<br />

delivery and transport<br />

Lynette Ellis said due to the<br />

physical constraints, particularly<br />

land stability, it was unlikely<br />

any physical widening will be<br />

initiated.<br />

“Any upgrade will be in the<br />

form of repair and resurfacing<br />

to the current road surface and<br />

footpath.”<br />

She said at the time the consent<br />

was granted in 2006, the<br />

developer was not required to<br />

pay development contributions<br />

towards associated transport<br />

activity.<br />

Heathcote Ward city councillor<br />

Sara Templeton has asked<br />

city council staff to “investigate<br />

the pedestrian safety concerns<br />

on Richmond Hill Rd outlined<br />

in the submissions and report to<br />

the (Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community) Board with<br />

potential solutions by the end of<br />

<strong>2018</strong>.”<br />

She said the lack of footpaths<br />

in the hill suburbs had been a<br />

concern for some time, “especially<br />

for children getting to and<br />

from school.”<br />

It will cost about $5000<br />

to install the new 40km/h<br />

speed signage on Richmond<br />

Hill.<br />

Car hoons<br />

cause safety<br />

concerns<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

STREET RACING, burnouts,<br />

dumped bottles and rubbish are<br />

causing safety concerns for Lester<br />

Lane businesses.<br />

And that’s on a street only<br />

200m long.<br />

THe city council is investigating<br />

putting no-stopping restrictions<br />

along the lane, which runs off<br />

Deans Ave, as businesses are<br />

plagued by night-time antisocial<br />

behaviour.<br />

THis has created a safety issue<br />

for staff working at night in<br />

adjacent buildings, including the<br />

New Zealand Blood Service and<br />

CropLogic, a city council report<br />

said.<br />

Feedback is open on the plan,<br />

which would see no-stopping<br />

restrictions along the lane from<br />

11pm to 5am.<br />

“THe no stopping restrictions<br />

will enable NZ Police to move<br />

vehicles on and stop vehicles and<br />

their passengers from gathering<br />

here,” the report said.<br />

Pupils inspired by Canterbury pools<br />

PUPILS TESTED out four<br />

different aquatic facilities around<br />

Canterbury to get ideas for the<br />

new Linwood-Woolston Pool.<br />

Pupils from St Anne’s Catholic<br />

School, Bamford School, Catholic<br />

Cathedral College and Te Waka<br />

Unua School were among those<br />

that went on the trip.<br />

“The purpose of the tours were<br />

for the students to experience a<br />

range of pools so that they can<br />

have informed discussion that<br />

draws on their knowledge and<br />

experiences. This will be most<br />

helpful when the time comes for<br />

formal engagement on the design<br />

of the new Linwood pool,” said<br />

St Anne’s principal Dallas Wichman.<br />

The pools visited were the<br />

Selwyn Aquatic Facility in Rolleston,<br />

Caroline Bay Trust Aoraki<br />

Centre in Timaru, Dudley Park<br />

Aquatic Centre in Rangiora and<br />

Taiora: QE II Recreation and<br />

Sports Centre.<br />

The pupils’ favourite was the<br />

Timaru pool because it was deep,<br />

had a dive tower, diving board<br />

and two hydroslides.<br />

They also enjoyed QE II<br />

because of the lazy river and<br />

hydroslide.<br />

Love of league brings family together<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

HALSWELL RUGBY league<br />

teenagers Tanner Smith and<br />

Cooper Te Hau are carrying on<br />

a family friendship which spans<br />

four generations.<br />

They are both Halswell Hornets<br />

and Canterbury under-14<br />

teammates – two decades after<br />

their grandfathers Norm Geddes<br />

and Peter Smith played with<br />

and against each other in the<br />

1970s.<br />

Ironically their fathers, Cooper<br />

and Tanner’s great-grandfathers,<br />

Arthur Geddes and Pat Smith<br />

shared a similar friendship<br />

through rugby league, playing<br />

with and against each other in<br />

various teams.<br />

Pat’s name is on the trophy the<br />

winners of the Canterbury premier<br />

rugby league final receive<br />

each year.<br />

Pat was 31-years-old when he<br />

first played for the Kiwis in 1946.<br />

The front-row forward captained<br />

the national team in 38<br />

appearances – including 10<br />

consecutive tests – between 1947<br />

and 1949.<br />

Peter was a Canterbury and<br />

South Island representative in the<br />

1960s.<br />

Norm, a Papanui stalwart<br />

and Peter, a Marist regular,<br />

played against each other<br />

throughout the 1960s and early<br />

1970s.<br />

FAMILY AFFAIR: Peter Smith (left), his grandson Tanner Stowers-Smith, Cooper Te Hau and his grandfather Norm Geddes enjoy a<br />

family friendship built by their love of rugby league which spans four generations. (Right) – Former Kiwis captain Pat Smith.<br />

“My dad used to pick up Peter<br />

in the morning when they used<br />

to live out at Prebbleton but<br />

we’d see each other on the field,”<br />

Norm said.<br />

“It’s quite a thrill to think<br />

our families have crossed paths<br />

through sport for all these years.”<br />

Norm was a second-rower who<br />

transitioned into the centres late<br />

in his career and picked up a<br />

Canterbury top try-scorers title<br />

near the end of his career in the<br />

1970s.<br />

Cooper and Tanner are now<br />

coached at Halswell by Cooper’s<br />

father, Kevin Te Hau.<br />

Winter Saturdays are busy for<br />

SPORTS<br />

the boys, as Tanner plays rugby<br />

for St Bede’s College and Cooper<br />

plays rugby for St Thomas’ in the<br />

Vehicles<br />

tagged<br />

with rude<br />

messages<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

SEVERAL BROOMFIELD<br />

and Islington residents were<br />

left with some rude signs on<br />

their vehicles.<br />

A vehicle was tagged with<br />

the phrase, “drugs?” while<br />

another had “pedo van free<br />

candy?” Others had male genitalia<br />

spray painted on the sides<br />

and bonnets. A police spokeswoman<br />

said two incidents of<br />

tagging on cars were reported<br />

but victims informed them of<br />

other incidents in the area that<br />

went unreported by vehicle<br />

owners.<br />

Between 8pm on Friday and<br />

10am on Saturday a Toyota<br />

Corolla on Brixton St was<br />

reported to have been tagged<br />

and between 2am and 8am on<br />

Sunday a Nissan diesel MK240<br />

truck on Malabar Cres was<br />

tagged, she said. “We do encourage<br />

people to report these<br />

incidents to give us an accurate<br />

picture of what’s happening in<br />

our communities.”<br />

No arrests have been made<br />

in relation to the tagging and<br />

investigations are ongoing.<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

A BULLDOZER may soon be<br />

put through the earthquake<br />

damaged and graffiti-riddled<br />

former Sockburn Service Centre.<br />

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board last<br />

week asked city council staff to<br />

start work on demolishing the<br />

old Sockburn Service Centre.<br />

Chairman Mike Mora said<br />

the board made it “clear” to city<br />

council staff about its intentions.<br />

“We want it removed as soon<br />

as possible because it’s a bit of an<br />

eyesore and it’s a bit of a mess.”<br />

City council head of facilities,<br />

property and planning Bruce<br />

Rendall said staff are currently<br />

working on a report where demolition<br />

plans are being drawn up.<br />

“This report will be presented<br />

to the community board in August,”<br />

Mr Rendall said.<br />

At last week’s meeting, the<br />

board also voted to retain the<br />

land on Main South Rd, which<br />

the centre is on.<br />

“There is possibility for us to<br />

continue to use the site [after<br />

demolition] and keep it in public<br />

hands so that’s where we’re at<br />

this point in time,” Mr Mora<br />

said.<br />

The centre was closed after the<br />

February 22, 2011, earthquake.<br />

One option that the city<br />

council looked at for the site<br />

was an access road through the<br />

land from Main South Rd to<br />

Blenheim Rd after the building is<br />

demolished.<br />

But Mr Mora said that option<br />

has not been taken any further.<br />

Greater Hornby Residents Association<br />

chairman Marc Duff<br />

said the site could potentially be<br />

looked at for a new $35.7 million<br />

community mega centre.<br />

“It’s really in the city council’s<br />

hands. As a community we’ve<br />

got to be prepared to look at all<br />

sites [for a centre].”<br />

Mr Duff said many residents<br />

felt it needed to be demolished.<br />

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS<br />

Specialists advise a vehicle<br />

check before winter sets in<br />

Winter weather can present a range of tricky driving conditions<br />

for motorists – from wet, slippery roads and heavy frosts to fog<br />

and driving rain. That’s why it is important to make sure your<br />

vehicle is in tip-top shape and ready to deal with these hazards<br />

before winter really sets in.<br />

The team at Roses Auto Electrical in Cranford Street recommends<br />

checking that your lights and windscreen wipers are in working<br />

order, and to ensure your vehicle will start on cold mornings they<br />

offer free battery and alternator and starter tests, and free battery<br />

fitting.<br />

Their well-equipped workshop includes specialised diagnostic<br />

equipment designed to find any faults with vehicles’ electronics, air<br />

bags or ABS braking system, which the qualified and experienced<br />

auto electrical specialists will repair quickly and efficiently.<br />

Roses Auto Electrical provides full electrical services for all<br />

makes and models of European, Japanese and light commercial<br />

vehicles. Any time a warning light flashes up on the dashboard,<br />

they advise calling into their workshop to have it checked out.<br />

Roses Auto Electrical has been in business for more than 20 years,<br />

and the workshop team are constantly updating their knowledge<br />

with industry training, as well as having the latest state-of-the-art<br />

equipment in the workshop.<br />

The customer comes first for the friendly, professional team at<br />

Roses Auto Electrical, and motorists having their vehicle serviced<br />

there can have confidence in its performance and safety, especially<br />

hazardous.<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Get rid of<br />

dampness<br />

in your house<br />

Now with the colder and wetter weather on<br />

its way, home owners are focusing on ways<br />

to make their homes comfortable, warm and<br />

healthy for their families throughout winter.<br />

Rising damp is an issue that affects many of<br />

our older properties which suffer from poor, or<br />

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,<br />

many people have relocated to homes<br />

that suffer from rising damp which can be<br />

associated with health problems. Independent<br />

tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can<br />

rise from the ground and enter a house every<br />

day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation<br />

and musty smells. Moulds can produce<br />

various allergic reactions and the<br />

frail, elderly and very young are<br />

especially vulnerable.<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete<br />

Ltd is a locally owned and<br />

operated firm. The team<br />

understands the problems<br />

caused by rising damp and are<br />

there to help. They will come<br />

to your damp home and pump<br />

a lightweight, flowable foam<br />

concrete under your timber<br />

floored home. Specially adapted<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

for our New Zealand conditions and<br />

applications it provides a layer of protection<br />

against rising moisture. An unexpected<br />

benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam<br />

Concrete have noticed recently, is that many<br />

owners of properties which had underfloor<br />

foam concrete installed, reported that it also<br />

provided protection against liquefaction after<br />

the earthquakes.<br />

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Choosing the<br />

right heat pump<br />

for your home<br />

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,<br />

most homes include at least one heat pump,<br />

if not a whole heating solution. They can<br />

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more<br />

convenient than a log burner as you just need<br />

to press a button. But how do you decide what<br />

is best? Choosing the right sized heat pump is<br />

key to ensuring optimum comfort levels. Every<br />

situation varies and it is therefore important<br />

to get professional advice from heat pump<br />

experts.<br />

The range varies from wall mounted high<br />

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,<br />

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted<br />

central heating systems allowing you to have a<br />

very discreet way of heating your whole home<br />

to a constant temperature throughout.<br />

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that<br />

is suitable for the size of the space you wish<br />

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to<br />

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area<br />

taken into consideration but also, insulation,<br />

building orientation, windows and ceiling<br />

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps<br />

available with different heating outputs so it<br />

is important to select the correct size for your<br />

requirements that will handle the job but not<br />

be unnecessarily overpowered.<br />

Secondly, the location of your heat pump<br />

is also extremely important. The cheapest<br />

installation is a back to back where the outdoor<br />

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor<br />

unit however this is not necessarily always<br />

the best option. It is vital that the indoor<br />

unit is positioned in a place that will not be<br />

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is<br />

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people<br />

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly<br />

in their outdoor entertaining area or right<br />

outside their bedroom window.<br />

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands<br />

have come and gone over the years but there<br />

are a number of manufacturers who provide<br />

reputable and reliable products. All brands vary<br />

in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems<br />

and price, so it depends on your application as<br />

to which will be most suitable. Major brands<br />

such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin,<br />

Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands<br />

backed up by good technical after sales service.<br />

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an<br />

accredited installer. This will not only ensure<br />

correct installation of your heat pump, but also<br />

validate the manufacturers warranty.<br />

Other things to consider when choosing a<br />

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the<br />

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi<br />

capabilities.<br />

Heating is a major investment in your home<br />

and it is vital to get the right advice.<br />

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,<br />

installation and servicing of all major brands<br />

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers<br />

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as<br />

to which system will suit your application<br />

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no<br />

obligation quote and will come to your home<br />

What makes a great<br />

Heat Transfer System?<br />

There are a number of Heat Transfer<br />

systems on the market. Smooth-Air<br />

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU<br />

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected<br />

components to optimise the system:<br />

They use insulated duct to transfer the<br />

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.<br />

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance<br />

and number of rooms, without being noisy.<br />

The diffusers send the heat to the floor,<br />

not to skim the across the ceilings. All<br />

components are good quality - designed to<br />

operate for years without problems.<br />

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of<br />

options: One to four rooms, with or without<br />

thermostat and with a choice of grilles and<br />

diffusers. HTUs improve energy efficiency<br />

in your house, as you are using excess<br />

heat. They have low power consumption<br />

- only 80watts for the three room system.<br />

Circulating air through the house also<br />

reduces the risk of damp.<br />

You can also choose the HTU version<br />

with downjet diffusers, which throw the<br />

warm air downwards to the floor. These<br />

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to<br />

regulate which room receives the most<br />

warm air.<br />

An average size living room requires 2-4<br />

kw of heating, yet appliances such as log<br />

burners generate heat in the region of 10<br />

-20kw. This leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of<br />

heat which sits at high level in the heated<br />

room, usually above door level.<br />

Heat transfer units work best where very<br />

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the<br />

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate<br />

warm air around the room with no<br />

layering, are not suitable as a heat source<br />

by themselves. However, if you have both<br />

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer<br />

systems with thermostat can work very<br />

well: The heat pump stops operating once<br />

the heat from the fire has heated the room,<br />

and the heat transfer kicks in above this<br />

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the<br />

ceiling.<br />

any other ventilation requirements.<br />

REAL ESTATE<br />

A beautiful life… in serene seclusion<br />

99 Purau Port Levy Road, Purau Bay<br />

Negotiation over $939,000 plus GST (if any)<br />

5 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living/dining room | 3 car garage | 21.2440ha freehold land | Listing #6459<br />

The interior of this extraordinarily<br />

appealing home has been largely crafted<br />

using the enduring beauty of native timber,<br />

resulting in superb spaces for those who want<br />

a whole lot more than a strictly utilitarian<br />

box in a suburban setting. It offers all the<br />

rustic charm you want with all the comfort<br />

you need, combining all day sun with<br />

beautiful views and superb living spaces,<br />

solar hot water panels, two water tanks, a log<br />

burner on wetback and gas cooking.<br />

The cleverly designed floor plan allows<br />

for many options. Live on one side of the<br />

home with three double bedrooms upstairs<br />

with one of these opening onto its own<br />

balcony and a spacious sun drenched open<br />

plan kitchen/lounge opening to the deck<br />

and garden. Along with all of this, two tile<br />

and timber detailed bathrooms all make for<br />

good family living or, in the unlikely event,<br />

you want to share your piece of paradise<br />

with others this will, of course, make for<br />

a wonderful Airbnb proposition, with 2<br />

bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with its own<br />

open plan kitchen and living areas opening<br />

onto the balcony. Tucked away, a short walk<br />

from the main house must be the ultimate<br />

romantic retreat in the form of a candle<br />

lit cabin with an outdoor bath over a fire.<br />

The Atarmies<br />

LEGENDARY local rockers The Atarmies play a<br />

Sunday arvo session at the Brighton Club this<br />

weekend.<br />

The four piece, made up of Mark Jayet<br />

(drums, vocals); Mark Wootton (lead guitar,<br />

vocals); Dennis Abbott (bass, vocals); and<br />

Darren Alexander (lead vocals guitar), has been<br />

engaging audiences with their special blend of<br />

classic rock and blues for well over a decade.<br />

Catch them at the club from 3pm. Or even<br />

better still, make a day of it and start with<br />

brunch! The Pierview Restaurant is open from<br />

10.30am to 2pm offering all the expected<br />

scrumptious breakfast/brunch delights.<br />

Located upstairs in the New Brighton Club,<br />

the Pierview Restaurant has always been a<br />

popular destination for dining and private<br />

functions. Offering uninterrupted views of<br />

beach, pier and coastline, the view is a stunning<br />

accompaniment to any occasion.<br />

Apart from Sunday Brunch the Pierview is<br />

open from 5.30pm Friday to Sunday serving<br />

quality, yet very affordable, a la carte dining that<br />

includes GF and vegetarian options. The<br />

restaurant also caters to children.<br />

The last Sunday of the month has turned into<br />

a tradition with the Pierview’s ‘all you can eat’<br />

Buffet. Priced at just $25 per person, tables fill<br />

fast on buffet nights, so bookings are essential.<br />

And on all the other Sundays, there’s a choice of<br />

the regular dinner menu, blackboard specials, or<br />

take advantage of the great value $25 set three<br />

course Sunday special.<br />

Downstairs the club's Tramshed Bistro is open<br />

for lunch and dinner Tuesday to Saturday with a<br />

great selection of meals, light meals, and snacks.<br />
