NEW BRIGHTON businesses

and residents are pleading for the

iconic annual fireworks event to

stay in the suburb.

The New Brighton Guy Fawkes

event has come under scrutiny

from the city council as part of

a city-wide review of all councilrun

events.

City council head of community

support, governance and

partnerships John Filsell said for

a number of years it has received

feedback on traffic

management

congestion.

He said it is a

health and safety

issue due to New

Brighton having

limitations on

its entry and exit

points.

John Filsell

At the time of the event, the

city council is required to only

have north and south exits out

of the area, with a central New

Brighton exit dedicated to a bus

service for 30min following the

event.

“The road works in this area

over the years have also added to

the congestion difficulties. With

a mass egress at the conclusion

of the event contributing to the

disruption,” Mr Filsell said.

Brighton owner Blair Hughes

said any event as popular as Guy

Fawkes will have traffic management

issues and the city council

should have the expertise to

manage the issues.

He said New Brighton is not

there is only one entrance, and

if the correct plan is put in place

there should not be an issue.

His views were backed by Bin

Inn New Brighton owner Nikki

Griffin, who said it should be an

issue that can be resolved.

“How many years have they

had the same issue and not bothered

about it?” she said.

The fireworks display has been

running at the pier since it was

opened in 1997.

Mrs Griffin said if the event

was taken away, it would be another

blow for the east and show

a “lack of commitment from the

city council” to an area “already

neglected.”

New Brighton Museum secretary

Peggy Butterfield said she

would be very disappointed if

the fireworks event was moved

away, but was supportive of it

being held at Matariki.

I SMELL a rat.

And it’s the city council’s murmurings

over Guy Fawkes (page 1).

The odour is the comment from city

council head of community support,

governance and partnerships (now that’s a

long title) John Filsell over traffic management at the event.

He’s talking congestion and mentions there is limitations on

the roads in and out of New Brighton.

New Brighton needs the fireworks display. It’s a great event

and there is a real buzz about it.

If the council continues to chest beat about revitalising

Brighton it won’t touch the event. But I think it will try.

And speaking of roads in and out of Brighton, what will happen

in the event of a tsunami?

That’s real food for thought.

Warning over clock tower danger

No public entry

while repairs

under way

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PEOPLE attempting to break

into the earthquake-damaged

New Brighton clock tower

are putting themselves in a

potentially dangerous situation,

warns the city council.

The clock tower is surrounded

by scaffolding and has fencing

around it, but that has not

stopped some people from

trying to gain entry.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said the

clock tower has been fenced off

because engineers are working

to determine how much damage

it sustained in the earthquakes,

and what needs to be done to

fix it.

“It is not safe for the public to

be in (the clock tower), which

is why we have got it fenced off.

Our concern is that if someone

does try to break in while the

repair work is under way, they

could find themselves in a

potentially dangerous situation,’’

Mr Rutledge said.

It comes as progress is well

PROGRESS: Repairs have started on the New Brighton clock

tower.

under way on the clock tower’s

earthquake and historical

repairs. On Thursday the clock

faces were removed.

Over the past few weeks,

contractors have been loosening

each face and removing

components.

City council community

capital delivery manager Darren

Moses said as the clock faces are

very fragile due to corrosion,

their removal has been carefully

planned. Each part was labelled

so they be can return to their

original location.

It is believed to be the first

time the clock faces have been

restored since the clock tower

was built in the 1930s.

Mr Moses said the scaffolding

will be amended and covered for

weather protection this week.

Shortly afterwards, a

contractor will remove the lead

paint from the entire structure.

Investigations by structural

engineers into the damage the

tower sustained have revealed

corrosion as a result of historic

water damage.

There is also significant

damage to large sections of

concrete in the tower and poor

quality concrete cover in the

internal floor. Both elements will

require replacing.

The clock tower floors

may also need replacing

and the concrete around its

faces is in poor condition, most

likely caused by corroding cast

iron.

The Sumner Scarborough

clock tower is also under repair

and has had attempted break-ins

as well.

PEOPLE OPPOSED to recent

changes to the bus routes in the

eastern suburbs will get another

chance to have their say.

The Greater Christchurch Public

Transport Joint Committee

will put out the draft Regional

Public Transport Plan for consultation

later this year.

This will be an opportunity for

communities to have their say

on the future shape of the bus

network, including the long-term

vision, priorities and action plan.

Following adoption of the

RPTP, detailed consultation at a

bus route level will occur early

next year.

It comes as a public meeting

was held in New Brighton to

gauge concern over the new bus

route changes.

About 60 people attended the

meeting last Monday to discuss

the latest changes Environemtn

Canterbury has implemented as

part of its Long Term Plan.

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams said there is a group of

concerned people who now have

an opportunity to collectively

work on the next part of the

Second chance for bus feedback

process.

Key concerns raised at the

meeting included the ability

for residents reliant on the bus

services to get to doctor

appointments, shopping

centres and work.

It comes after ECan

confirmed it would combine

the 135 Burwood

Hospital and 150 The

Palms bus routes in

June.

The new bus route

will now stop at the

Taiora: QE II Recreation

and Sport Centre and no

Philip

Haythornthwaite

longer travel into New Brighton.

The consistency and quality of

bus stops in the area was raised

by Disabled Persons Assembly

Christchurch and Districts

president Philip Haythornthwaite.

He told Pegasus Post if

the bus stops are not up

to scratch they can affect

patronage.

An example was a bus

stop recently installed

on Stanmore Rd outside

Kora Kitchens.

Mr Haythornthwaite

said the footpath is “deeply

angled” and if you were to push

a wheelchair there was potential

for it to fall over.

City council transport operations

manager Ryan Rolston said

staff are working with a contractor

to rectify the grade issue

at Stanmore Rd and should be

resolved in two weeks.

What could be done to improve

ECan’s submission process

and make its website more “userfriendly”

was also discussed.

Senior public transport manager

Stewart Gibbon said ECan

is looking at how the submission

process could be improved.

Butcher parks up in Marshland

A MOBILE butcher has started

parking up on Marshland Rd

each weekend.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder has expanded his

business by setting up a

moveable butchery from a small

truck.

Mr Winder, who has been a

butcher since he was 19-yearsold,

said the reaction has been

“amazing.”

“People have just been blown

away by it,” he said.

The idea for the mobile butchery

came from residents’ requests

to have a shop in other places.

“I thought, well, it’s not that

easy to open a butcher shop, so

I’ll see if I can get a mobile one

going,” Mr Winder said.

He is selling the same products

found in the Elite Meats store in

Bush Inn.

“If we haven’t got it on the

truck, then we take orders and

we take the order out of whatever

they want the following week,”

Mr Winder said.

In March, Mr Winder was

named in the all star team at

the World Butchers’ Challenge

in Northern Ireland. His

team, the Pure South Sharp

Blacks, finished second in the

competition.

The mobile butcher will

be open outside Vegeland on

Marshland Rd on weekends

from 9am-5.30pm, and outside

the South Point complex in Faringdon,

Rolleston, on Thursdays

from 2-6.30pm.

“It’s one of those things, we’re

trying to take small steps to get

it right rather than rushing out

to all these different places,” Mr

Winder said.

UNIQUE: Elite Meats owner Corey Winder has opened his own

mobile butcher shop which he parks up on Marshland Rd each

weekend. ​

Archery club’s plan for new

Rawhiti facility hits a snag

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A “PRESSING need” to build

a year- round weather facility

to support archery at Rawhiti

Domain continues to be put on

hold.

The Christchurch Archery

Club has been battling for more

than three years to have its lease

at Rawhiti Domain renewed by

the city council.

While the lease is not up for

renewal until 2021, the club is

planning a $350,000 extension

to its current facility and “desperately”

needs to secure a lease

for the next 20 years.

A letter was presented to the

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board last week on the issue. The

club’s past president and facilities

convener Bill Skews said it

has been trying to get the lease

secured for the past three years.

Mr Skews said it has been

based at the domain for more

than 25 years and has been a

good tenant.

But city council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said initial information

provided by the club

was “incomplete” and it required

further information to approve

the new lease.

CONCERN: The Christchurch Archery Club has been battling

for more than three years to have its lease at Rawhiti Domain

renewed by the city council. ​

As a result, the lease has been

placed on hold.

The club’s land is located next

to the Athletics Canterbury clubrooms

and track. It is planning

to extend its current building by

580 sq m to allow for shooting

distances of 18-25m.

The club has been fundraising

for the project for about 10 years

and currently has $135,000 saved

to go towards the building.

Mr Skews said the extension

will be a training centre for its

youth and senior archers.

The club has about 90 members

and another 60 who do

courses throughout the year.

The extension is expected to

be co -funded by organisations

including the Lotteries Commission

and the community board,

as well as fundraising and fees

from the use of the facility.

Mr Skews said the club won’t

be doing further fundraising

until it knows it has the lease.

The club has hosted major

events like the Stoke Mandeville

Games, International Fire Fighters

Games and ANZ national

championships.

Free firewood warms Shirley families

Community

helps mum

through winter

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BEING THE sole bread-winner

in a household with three

children hasn’t been an easy road

for Shirley mother Rachel Curry.

The oil heater she uses

to warm her home burns

through a “staggering” amount

of electricity, and recently

contributed to a $700 power bill

for one month. “I had the oil

heater on 24/7 for a month and

had no firewood and had to keep

the family warm,” Miss Curry

said. The previous month was

between $400 and $500.

But paying the bills has been

made a little easier for the

commercial cleaner. Her family

is one of 18 in the Shirley area to

receive free firewood.

The firewood deliveries were

part of a large community effort

to help families struggling to

keep their homes warm.

As well as having the stress

of heating her home taken

away, Fire and Emergency New

Zealand has undertaken a safety

check of Miss Curry’s home and

installed fire alarms.

Said Miss Curry: “I am just

grateful there are these community

groups that do go out of

their way and support each other

. . . we have had some cold days

with cold morning frosts so it

has been really helpful for us,”

she said.

It comes as a Salvation Army

survey showed almost half of its

respondents said they had gone

without heating because of the

cost over the past year.

More than 50 people and various

organisations were involved

in the firewood initiative, including

the Department of Corrections,

Te Puna Oraka, the Shirley

Community Trust, city council

and Fire and Emergency New

Zealand.

Mairehau’s Neighbourhood

Trust, the Delta Community

HAPPY HOME: Malachy Curry, 6, helps his mum Rachel light a fire with their free firewood. ​

Support Trust, Shirley Rugby

Football Club, Shirley Intermediate

School, C3 Church, Housing

New Zealand, the Helen Anderson

Trust, New Brighton Volunteer

Fire Brigade, New Zealand

Army and St Johns Church

also contributed to helping the

families.

The wood was sourced by the

Department of Corrections,

which had old pallets to get rid

of.

Community activator Steve

Jones-Poole, who orchestrated

the firewood project, said it was a

community project.

He said some of the people

who received firewood also

helped deliver firewood to

others. The community organisations

selected families to

donate the firewood to based on

information from social service

providers in the area.

Mr Jones-Poole said he had

heard of some families heating

their homes using an oven, while

others were using small heaters

which could cost up to $600 a

month to operate.

“Of course, the bigger picture

around it is you have got the

heating for the homes which is

good for them but the bigger

thing was the people coming

together,” he said.

Mr Jones-Poole met with

families and Te Puna Oraka

yesterday to work on a long-term

solution to help families in need

to collect firewood over the year.

CHARITY: More than

50 people and several

organisations helped

deliver firewood to families

in Shirley.

Earthquake claims

still not settled?

Our newspapers are full of stories

recounting the problems many home

owners are having in settling their

earthquake claims. EQC’s repairs

failing, and insurance companies not

meeting their

obligations,

are common

problems being

experienced.

Aurum Building

Brokers manager,

Chris Seque,

advises that to

be in a position

to challenge EQC and/or your insurer,

you need “best” evidence.

Homeowners need to prove their loss:

1. The property has suffered

earthquake damage

2. The property is covered by

an insurance contract for the

damage.

3. The damage needs to be

appropriately assessed.

4. A reinstatement

solution needs to

be prepared that

describes the standard

of repair required in

terms of the insuarnce

policy and the EQC

act.

5. The cost of

reinstatement needs to be

quantified.

Chris advises that Aurum Building

Brokers has been helping Christchurch

home owners for the past six years

in preparing the evidence portfolios

needed for advocates and lawyers

to negotiate their claims with insurers.

Aurum’s professional network can

introduce homeowners to the people

who can provide evidence written in

a format to challenge the assessments

provided by EQC’s or the insurer’s

appointed experts.

Burwood

Community

Board member

Linda Stewart

writes about

the post-quake

issues being

faced by

Burwood, Dallington and

Avondale residents and the

action needed to help them

IN DISCUSSION with

Coastal-Burwood community

development adviser Natalie

Dally, I discussed my concerns

that little has been done for the

three suburbs that were seriously

affected by the earthquakes.

Their losses were:

•Burwood – A large number

of the newer residential development

adjacent to the Avon River

along New Brighton Rd. Connecting

roads, issues relating to

the demolition of the red-zoned

area of their suburb and a decrease

in public transport have

caused further challenges for

their community.

•Dallington – The Catholic

school, church and medical

centre. Fifty -five per cent of their

residential homes. As with above,

massive disruption related to

demolition.

•Avondale – The hotel that

doubled as a meeting facility,

their strip shops and Avondale

Primary School. And Chisnalwood

Intermediate has a question

mark over its future – not

known at this point.

All three suburbs have lived

through the residential red zoning,

which has to this day continued

ongoing earthquake-related

after effects.

The lack of capital infrastructure

building/rebuilding has

been on hold while the future of

the red-zoned area is decided.

Almost eight years of waiting

is a long time to cope with

continual loss. No replacement

of their social and retail infrastructure

and a public transport

reduction.

Ongoing road rebuilding

projects, although unsettling,

have been very welcomed on

completion.

Depleted local groups that

support community progress

initiatives.

These accumulated effects have

left those suburbs bleak, with

little in social infrastructure to

boost community well-being.

I am acutely aware that issues

around loneliness and isolation

and mental health are being

felt in these areas along with

decreased property values. These

suburbs are not thriving by any

means.

RED-ZONED: Linda Stewart is on a mission to help revitalise

Burwood, Dallington and Avondale which are still experiencing

the after effects of the quakes.

•Actions:

With this information, our

community development adviser

enabled a research survey which

covered both the Burwood and

Coastal wards. The most significant

concern from community

groups was the lack of meeting

facilities to bring the community

together.

A further discussion with our

adviser evolved and a project

developed to bring the three

suburbs together to work more

closely on:

1) Events that bring the three

suburbs together.

2) Back-up support submissions

to support the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board’s

submission to the Long Term

Plan 2018 -2018 for an area-wide

community facility to be located

at the Burwood Primary School

Hall site.

3) Community groups participating

are the residents associations

for each suburb, Burwood

All Saints and Burwood Christian

Centre, and other groups

like the Burwood Tennis Club

and Dallington Scouts have

expressed interest in joining in

with the suburb events.

Our community development

adviser applied to the community

resilience partnership

fund (members being representatives

of Selwyn, Waimakariri

and Christchurch councillors)

and was successful in securing

$60,000 for events and a feasibility

study to further these communities’

needs for a meeting

facility. The three suburbs now

have a fund to provide an event

for each of their suburbs.

All three can also work

together for a main event that

replaces the Burwood Fair. They

have elected to have a “river”

event based at Kerrs Reach (now

in planning stage).

At this point, Dallington representatives

will be meeting with

their other local groups.

Dallington Community Trust

has a ‘Movie in the Park’ event

already well progressed and it’s

hoped that their neighbouring

groups would see the potential

to participate and make this a

major, fun event that brings their

community together.

Although city councillors

didn’t grant a fund for the areawide

community facility as part

of the Long Term Plan, they have

asked staff to undertake a facility

feasibility study to assess their

capital investment for Burwood

west and I believe other areas.

I appreciate the skills and

knowledge our community development

adviser has brought

to this initiative immensely.

employment opportunities.

Mairehau high School is transforming and rebuilding the school to accommodate roll

growth. The Board are working with the Ministry of education to get our school building

project underway. We are keen to ensure secondary school co-educational school

Overnight trip to Rapaki Marae

We had a very successful first overnight trip

to rapaki marae prior to Ngā Manu Kōrero.

Students took part in a pōwhiri, learnt about

the legends behind the carvings inside the

marae, went on a hikoi (walk) around the area

where they learnt about the local history of

certain parts of the area and learnt how to

make their own putiputi (flower) through

raranga harakeke (flax weaving).

our Manu Kōrero speakers were able to practice

their speeches and our kapahaka group were

able to learn our new school haka. By the end of

the trip i had a few students saying “we should

have stayed the whole week!” so they must

have had a great time. But i must say it is nice to

be back in the comforts of home again.

it was fantastic opportunity for our students to

experience and one we hope to duplicate in the

future.

Flexible Learning Time

one of the tasks for some of our FlT (Year 9

and Year 10) students was to select and explore

a country of their choice. each member of

a group had to learn about that country’s

different aspects of culture.

as a group they had to create a PowerPoint

presentation and a booklet to be shared with

other different cultural groups. also, they

performed games and did practical activities

to present a specific aspect of their culture.

This included teaching others in class to learn

karate, play original Filipino games and even

to make original italian pizzas in the school

cooking room.

Nga Manu Korero

Words can’t express how proud i was to be a

part of Mairehau high School after the amazing

efforts both our kapahaka students and

kaikōrero (speakers) demonstrated on stage at

Ngā Manu Kōrero (canterbury and West coast

Māori Speech competition) which saw over

1000 students in attendance.

Phoenix Neilson (Year 12) was our first speaker

on stage as he took part in the Senior english

impromptu section and gained some very

impressive grades from the judges earning

88/100 (average of 3 judges), then for his

prepared speech

he earned 94/100

average.

Zion Wirihana

(Year10) was our

next speaker

on stage

representing us

for the Junior

Māori section

earning 89/100

Zion Wirihana average.

Matalasi Tulia

(Year 10) was

our final speaker

representing us for

the Junior english

section earning

92/100 average.

it was Phoenix’s

second time

taking part in

the competition

and Zion’s and

Matalasi Tulia

Matalasi’s first time

so we congratulate them on their tremendous

efforts and impressive results from the judges.

our kapahaka group were the best supporters

we could have asked for - they helped each of

our speakers practise during the breaks, and

gave an intensely passionate haka performance

on stage after each speaker had delivered

their speech. it was incredibly long day for all

involved and we are so proud of you all.

Ms Napa

Manukura students attend first hui at Ara

our Manukura (Senior Māori leadership)

students attended their first hui in May at ara

(Te Puna Wanaka/cPiT).

They were welcomed with a mihi whakatau

(welcome speech), followed by morning tea,

then students got to listen to two motivational

speakers including a previous lecturer of

indigenous Studies and current lecturer of

Sports Science and also the ceo of Mainfreight

about their recipes for success.

after breaking for lunch students got straight

into their pathway planning, where they

identified key goals they would like to achieve,

created a step-by-step pathway as to how

they were going to overcome barriers and use

enablers to reach each of their identified goals.

Geography trip to Hanmer Springs

Term 2 saw the Year 11 geography class

head off to a camp at hanmer Springs. The

main purpose of the camp was to conduct

geographic research into the impacts of

tourism on hanmer Springs.

To do this, students were tasked with planning

their itinerary for the camp and to decide where

to visit and which key tourist attractions to

experience.

The group arrived to a blanketing of snow,

much to their delight. The trip to the thermal

pools surrounded by snow, was definitely a

highlight for all. The following day, students

made the most of the good weather exploring

hanmer Springs and conducting tourist

and local interviews, traffic counts and

environmental surveys – of which they used

Village cruisers as their mode of transport.

everyone had a fantastic time and the students

came back to school fully charged for their next

assignment.

Shoddy repairs

PEGASUS POST

Advertising

FeAture

When I say “shoddy repairs” to

people in the North Island or the West

Island where I come from, they have

absolutely no idea what I’m talking

about. They have no understanding

what shoddy repairs really means.

That’s because anywhere else in the

world where a natural disaster has

occurred the Insurance company will

either do the repairs themselves and

stand behind those repairs or pay

cash out to you to take the risk and

do the repairs yourself.

Not in Christchurch, Christchurch is another reality,

we have EQC. After I left EQC and before I started

my business whenever I told anyone about my idea to

challenge EQC reports I lost count of the people that

told me,” You’re crazy”. I was told, “Your business

will never work here, don’t you know, we are the only

country in the world that has EQC, they will look after

us and we will never need to challenge their reports”.

After 7 years the truth is out there, and you must

challenge the EQC assessments and repairs carried out to

your homes.

“Who’s to blame”

The previous government want you to believe it was the

fault of the builders trying to cut corners. Of course, the

builders involved are not blameless, but, they are not

solely responsible. To many people this was just a series

of unfortunate events and gross incompetence. I do

not believe that, I believe this was a well-orchestrated

takeover of the entire process by the Government and

those beholden to it or benefiting from it. We all know

that all governments lie, some more than others. But

what happened here was a well thought-out, wellorchestrated

hoodwinking of an entire city and nation.

The tools the then government used included EQC,

The Red Zone, The Residential Advisory Service (RAS),

The Christchurch Home Repair Program (CHRP),

the media, the legal system, MBIE and professional

experts. The result is billions of dollars being denied to

homeowners with damaged homes and a damaged

Christchurch housing stock that will take generations to

recover.

Perhaps the most insidious program of all was the

Christchurch Home Repair Program (CHRP), with about

90,000 homes repaired under this program. I’m not going

to say all the repairs carried out were failures. What I will

say is that a significant amount of the more difficult repairs

had work done

on them that

did not meet

building standards let alone the much

higher standard of the insurance

policies. Significant damage has

been ignored and when challenged

explained away as pre-existing. After

seven years of re-assessing EQC

work we’ve seen it all. From a jandal

being used to pack a pile to a pile

being cut through so there was no

need to get a plumber to move a

pipe and EQC refusing to lift carpets

to see if the slabs were cracked.

THERE IS

NO TIME

TO DELAY,

YOU NEED

TO TAKE

ACTION

NOW

CHRP, but many, many more are

completely unaware of the damage

caused and damage ignored under

CHRP. We know EQC give estimates

of as low as 600 and as high as

3,000 homes that have suffered

shoddy repairs. I believe the actual

number is much higher, in the tens

of thousands, but only time will

tell. The fact is, no one knows the

actual number because there are no

records that could be relied upon.

Proper assessments were never done by EQC.

What we do know from fighting for so many homeowners

with shoddy repairs, is that many of the repairs have

covered up the actual damage. Foundation damage

hidden behind epoxy glue, plaster and paint, piles packed

on poor ground and doors and windows shaved to fit.

What you must do

To get justice you have to fight for your rights,

however getting justice is very expensive. You will

need to have very deep pockets and some or all of

the following: Builders, Engineers, Quantity Surveyors,

Geotech Engineers, Lawyers and a lot of your own

personal time. Or you can pass all of that on to us to

fund and manage.

If you can afford it

• you must get your repairs checked, by independent

experts.

• If there is unaddressed damage, get a lawyer. Find

one that doesn’t work for Insurance companies.

If you can’t afford it

• Call us, we are New Zealand’s largest earthquake

litigation funder.

• We pay for an independent expert to assess the repairs

and damage.

• If there is no damage and the repairs have been carried

out correctly, you pay nothing, and our contract is

terminated.

• However, if damage is found or the repairs are substandard,

we fund everything it takes to prove your

claim until settlement.

• We operate a “No win, No fee” system of funding.

• At settlement we take back the costs outlaid and a

percentage of the settlement.

BURWOOD BOXER Daniel

Meehan has taken another

step towards the New Zealand

Golden Gloves in Christchurch

with an impressive win at an

Anzac boxing tournament in

Auckland on Sunday.

The 15-yearold

from

Christchurch

Boys’ High

School won his

bout against

Hamilton’s

Navahn

Guilmore by

unanimous

decision, which

included a

standing eight

count in the

second round.

The current

under-57kg

cadet grade New

Zealand and

Australian national champion

improved his record to 16-1.

He is following in the

footsteps of his father Danny,

who had more than 120 fights

when he was based in the

Manawatu district.

Daniel has been training

for the past five years under

Wainoni-based Smiling Tigers

Boxing Club coach Mark Fuller.

“I started with dad five years

ago just hitting the pads in

the garage,” he said. “Initially,

I wasn’t very good but after a

while I really grew to love it.”

He was a gold medallist in the

under-57kg cadet grade at the

New Zealand and Australian

nationals and will be looking to

defend both titles this year.

Daniel’s only loss came two

years ago and,

since then, he has

learnt the value

of nutrition and

fitness and the

impact it can

have over three

2min boxing

rounds. Fuller

said Daniel

has plenty of

potential and

the biggest issue

is finding him

bouts. Daniel

said he likes to

stay busy inside

the ring and

likes to use his

overhand right. He said his dad

is supportive of his sport and

strikes the right balance with his

involvement.

“He’s always there for a word

of encouragement or advice, but

he lets me be my own boxer,” he

said.

Daniel said after being in the

Canterbury set-up for the past

few years, he is keen to gain

more chances to represent New

Zealand.

Reading to dogs

Tuesday, 3.30 – 4.30pm

Designed to provide a relaxed,

non-threatening atmosphere

which encourages children to

practise their reading skills

and develop a love of reading.

The programme uses dogs who

are the beloved pets of the city

council’s animal management

team. These furry friends have

all been trained and tested for

health, safety and temperament.

The dogs can increase a child’s

relaxation while reading, listen

attentively, do not laugh, judge

or criticise, allow children to

proceed at their own pace and

can be less intimidating than a

child’s peers. Library staff and

a dog handler will be present

at all times to help facilitate the

sessions. Sessions are 15min long.

Simply impressive both inside and out,

sweeping views over the water in an ideal

north-facing aspect.

Situated on the lower slopes of St Andrews

Hill where homes are tightly held and seldom

relinquished, this is your chance to own a

modern, stylish and wonderfully warm slice

of sophistication in a highly sought-after dress

circle location.

Superb sea views provide the backdrop to

everyday living on the top floor with the open

plan interconnecting living areas hosting a

well-proportioned dining space and lounge.

The contemporary kitchen with granite

benchtops strikes the perfect balance between

form and function with servery windows

allowing you to arrange outdoor meals with

ease.

Sliding stacking doors on each level promote

fantastic indoor/outdoor access to the extensive

Kwila decking and aggregate patios where you

can entertain al fresco, while admiring the

manicured gardens and flat lawns which are

superbly landscaped by Texture Plants.

An additional living area on the ground

floor offers excellent flexibility for families

and ensures you can cater to any occasion

while four bedrooms are serviced by two

bathrooms, the master with an ensuite, walk-in

Intimate sea views, an admired address and

ease of living are offered at this immaculate

and elegantly styled residence which is sure to

attract your attention with all that the Port Hills

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves whic had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

Cave Rock

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidentally seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the settlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Gart hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking t operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

September-May along with a Thai

f od truck.

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.

IT COULD be some time before

charges are laid in relation to the

fatal hit-and-run in Dallington.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg

Cottam said yesterday the vehicle

involved in the crash last week

was still being examined.

He said there was still a lot of

work to do to gather all the information

and finish police inquiries

before any charges would be laid.

“They can take some time,” he

said.

“We’ve got six months to lay

charges in relation to traffic offending

– it certainly won’t take

that long.”

Steffan Pearce-

Loe (right), 30, was

hit by a vehicle

near the Gayhurst

Rd bridge while

walking his dogs at

about 2.30am last

Thursday.

He died in hospital

from his injuries on Friday.

His funeral was held on Tuesday.

Police found the vehicle

involved, which had damage

consistent with the crash, on Saturday.

A detective saw it parked

up a driveway.

The vehicle’s owner, who was

driving, has been interviewed by

police.

Detective Senior Sergeant Cottam

remained tight-lipped about

the driver. •Turn to page 6

Huia Sinclair-Parker, 10, was at

Willowbank Wildlife Reserve

for Kidfest’s ‘Junior Keeper

yesterday when Neo

swooped in.

Having Neo, the kea, on her

shoulder was exciting, “but

scary at the same time.”

“It jumped on me from behind

and gave me a surprise. They

have sharp claws that dug

into my shoulders.”

Children aged from 10-13 are
