Petition grows over bus stop plan

Cafe, seven

shops

will lose

car parks

• By Sophie Cornish

A PROPOSAL to relocate two

bus stops less than 150m down

Innes Rd has angered Mairehau

shop owners, who say it will

mean a loss of parking for up to

eight businesses.

A petition against the changes

started by Flower Bazaar owners

Des Banks and Ian Harvey collected

more than 700 signatures

in seven days.

The city council is proposing

the relocation of several bus stops

in the area to align with Environment

Canterbury’s changes to

the Orbiter and Shirley 44 bus

routes, to accommodate for the

opening of the Christchurch

Northern Corridor. QE II Drive

will become four-laned and a

right turn in and out of Philpotts

Rd will not be possible, meaning

a change to the Orbiter’s route.

The proposal includes moving

two bus stops on each side of

Innes Rd between Mahars Rd

and Philpotts Rd west.

This will mean the bus stop

will be right in front of a line

of shops, removing seven car

parks, leaving four immediate

businesses without carparks and

“probably another four” businesses

OPTION also, said ONEMr

Banks.

FIGHTING BACK: Innes Rd business owners (from left) Ian Harvey, Charmaine Fright, Trang Dinh and Des Banks are upset a

proposal to relocate two bus stops many eliminate their parking.

“People are just so angry about

it . . . . it will eliminate our foot

traffic. You know yourself, if you

grab a coffee and you can’t park

close you keep on driving to the

next place.”

Mairehau Community Pharmacy

manager Andrew Brown

said the shops rely on the parking

and is confused by the proposal,

when the original stops are closeby.

“I could walk to the bus stop

already in less than a minute. It’s

not even a big move, it’s not like

it’s going to enable things happening

that weren’t happening.”

City council acting manager

operations transport Ryan

Rolston said the proposal aims

to place the bus stops closer to

Philpotts Rd and the pedestrian

crossing on Innes Rd. He said

city council was aware the proposed

changes would mean a loss

of parking for businesses.

“No decisions have been made

at this stage. This is a proposal

and staff will be looking closely

at concerns raised in submissions

and what improvements may

address those. This could include

considering other bus stop locations,”

he said.

Restore your oiled CEDAR BLINDS with our re-oiling service.

Mairehau Primary School

principal John Bangma said the

proposal “defies logic.”

“Our main concerns are about

safety of children. If there was a

bus parked where the new stops

will be, it’s going to be very difficult

for our children on patrol

in the mornings to be able to see

past the bus to check if are cars

coming.”

COMMUNITY GROUPS and

others deserve a pat on the back for an

initiative to keep people warm this winter

(see page 5).

The price of electricity and wood is tough

on many. So tough that a Salvation Army survey reveals nearly

half of New Zealanders have gone without heating because of

the cost.

So it’s great to see needy families getting firewood deliveries.

For Rachel Curry it comes as a huge relief. Her last power bill

was $700.

Now that is a staggering bill, brought about because she had

an oil heater on continuously to keep her family warm.

Hot water bottles and blankets may have eased the pain of

that power bill, but at least now she has wood to heat her home.

Campbell in bid to extend booze ban

Bylaw review

chance to

make change

• By Sophie Cornish

ALCOHOL restrictions could

be put in place in Elmwood

Park, Roto Kohatu Reserve and

McLeans Island if a community

board member gets his way.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

chairman Aaron Campbell

wants more areas to be considered

in the

upcoming

10-year

review of the

Alcohol Restrictions

in

Public Places

Bylaw.

Mr

Park in Strowan.

night with Crime Watch Papanui

and found that part of its work

involved cleaning up litter in

places where it appeared people

had been drinking, such as

Elmwood Park in Merivale.

“It’s not their job to pick up the

litter but they do it,” he said.

“It wouldn’t affect the onlicences.

The bowling and tennis

clubs have on-licenses for their

clubrooms and that wouldn’t affect

that at all.”

“It just gives the police additional

powers if need be,” he said.

Mr Campbell wants popular

lake spot Roto Kohatu Reserve

included in the alcohol ban area,

as well as McLeans Island.

“It’s one 10th of the one per

cent of idiots who get drunk and

drive fast down that gravel road

. . . it’s also a swimming area and

a water sports and recreation

area. How well does alcohol mix

with swimming?”

Mr Campbell said the type of

ban would depend on talks between

city council staff and the

groups that use the areas.

The community board will

make a submission early next

month on the bylaw, in which

it will put forward its recommendation.

Mr Campbell said

he may also make an individual

submission, asking city council

to consider a night ban in the

Summit Rd area too.

PAPANUI DESIGNER Janice

About 60,000 people are

expected to attend the WOW’s

Ms Elliott is one of eight designers

She has been named at a finalist

This year’s finalist garments

Massacre survivors dig in at planting

MASSACRE SURVIVORS from

Parkland, Florida, have helped

plant 3300 trees in a Marshland

reserve, to recognise New

Zealand Defence Force members

– past and present.

The planting event, Matariki Tu

Rākau held at Ouruhia Reserve,

is part of the One Billion Trees

programme, helping to mark nationwide

commemorations of the

end of World War I 100 years ago.

Members of the Student Volunteer

Army, Citycare staff, Styx

Living Laboratory Trust volunteers

and Ouruhia School pupils

also took part.

It is part of an initiative to plant

350,000 trees to commemorate

soldiers who served overseas.

SVA president Josh Blackmore

said the event was part of the

Christchurch and Parkland

Youth Leadership summit involving

visiting American students.

During the visit from the

students, the two groups were

able to share their experiences of

mobilising after tragedies.

Seventeen totara trees were also

planted in Halswell Quarry Park

last week, to honour the 17 killed

in the third deadliest school

shooting in United States history.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said the planting

in Marshland, which was

dominated by totara, will provide

a buffer between planned sports

fields and the Northern Arterial

Motorway.

“It will contribute to a series of

native forest patches across the

city that aims to support current

and future bush bird populations

and will be a key node on the Ka

Putahi Creek leg of the proposed

Styx Source to Sea Reserve Network,”

he said.

The planting is part of ongoing

work across the Styx River catchment

that aims to support the

city council’s Styx Vision 2000

– 2040, focusing on a spring-fed

river ecosystem and a source to

sea experience, including a living

laboratory.

KIND DONATION: Blackwells City Mazda dealer principal Seth

Ovens with Robyn and Analise Twemlow. ​

CHRISTCHURCH mum

Robyn Twemlow is out to make

a difference in the lives of

those diagnosed with Tourette

Syndrome - and last week

received $10,000 from the Mazda

Foundation to aid her cause.

Tourette’s is a condition characterised

by tics, repetitive and

involuntary movements.

Five years ago, Ms Twemlow’s

then-nine-year-old daughter

Analise was diagnosed with the

syndrome.

But the pair found there was

little support for them in the

community.

Ms Twemlow founded the

Tourette’s Association of New

Zealand as a way for her family

to connect with other affected

Kiwis.

As well as running a support

system for families and an information

hub for those who have

been recently diagnosed, the

Tourette’s Association also began

running a yearly camp called

Camp Twitch.

It brings together young people

with Tourette’s and their families

for a weekend of fun where their

tics are welcomed.

At Blackwells City Mazda

last week Ms Twemlow was

presented with $10,000 from the

Mazda Foundation to help run

Camp Twitch, enabling more

than 50 young people and their

families to attend the camp.

Ms Twemlow said the funding

would reduce the financial stress

of families living with Tourette’s

and allows young people from

any financial background to attend

the camp.

She said Camp Twitch is an

environment where children can

“tic loud and proud.”

“It’s amazing to see them build

their self-esteem and take ownership

over their disorder. It also

provides opportunity for parents

to share their experiences of

raising a child with Tourette

Syndrome – so it’s an empowering

experience for all involved.”

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 the free firewood

delivered to Shirley families. ​

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 to

deliver firewood to families

in Shirley.

Fire rages, homes at risk

High Court

date set

in bid

to stop

Belfast water

consents

A PRELIMINARY hearing in

the High Court on October

2 is set to address a water

action group’s bid to stop two

companies taking water from

sites in Belfast then selling it

overseas.

Aotearoa Water Action is

contesting Environment Canterbury’s

decision to grant resource

consents to bottling companies

Cloud Ocean Water and Rapaki

Natural Resources.

AWA opposes an argument

from the bottling companies

that they did not need new consents

to take the water, which

could see up to 24 million litres

a day removed.

The consents are based on

historical permits for the Silver

Fern Farms works and the Kaputone

Wool Scour.

Said AWA spokesman Peter

Richardson: “The companies

say they are entitled to rely on

the previous plant owners’ use

consents, but those consents

were for entirely different purposes

– wool scouring and meat

processing. We don’t think that’s

right.”

“ECan correctly required

these companies to apply for

new consents, although in our

view it then processed the consents

unlawfully,” he said.

If AWA is successful, there

will be a further hearing at a later

date on whether the consents

were granted legally by ECan.

The Bottle Off! campaign has

been created to support the legal

action and an online PledgeMe

campaign has raised more than

$40,000.

A petition with about 115,000

signatures calling for the end

of foreign companies selling

bottled Christchurch water was

handed to ECan in April.

CHANGE: Burnside High School student E Wen Wong wants young people to

take action to reduce plastic pollution.

Youths fight against

plastic waste

Burnside

High

School

student E

Wen Wong

writes

about

young

people and plastic

pollution

IN MID-JULY, I returned

home from my third New

Zealand Model United

Nations conference.

Over four days in Wellington,

the heart of New

Zealand’s political sphere,

I was surrounded by a

rich atmosphere of young

people dedicated to fostering

positive change in their

communities.

Much like many UN

youth events, NZMUN

2018 was met with a host of

change-makers, leaders and

aspiring diplomats who,

just like me, recognise the

important role of young

people in local, national

and global decision-making.

However, as an environmental

advocate, I also

recognise that Christchurch’s

youth lack a range of

NEW Brighton businesses

and residents are pleading

for its iconic fireworks

event to stay in the suburb.

The annual Guy Fawkes

event has come under

scrutiny from the city

council as part of a citywide

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

equally accessible platforms

to express their environmental

views, especially

around the growing issue of

plastic pollution.

After identifying a space

for growth in this area, in

2016 I founded P.S. Our

Beaches, an organisation

dedicated to raising awareness

of the plastic pollution

issue. This organisation has

grown since and now has

exciting plans for a conference

called EnviroPAST

(Plastic And Sustainability

Talks) set for next year.

From this project, I want

youth not only to be aware

of the plastic pollution

issue, but motivated to

make real change. I hope

that, through EnviroPAST,

we can provide not just

a conference that comes

and goes, but a space for

all youth to network with

those passionate about the

same issues as them.

As a young person, I

believe we are inheriting an

earth that is increasingly

damaged and, as such,

we are in a better place to

understand and proceed

with decisions on how we

can preserve the land and

traffic management and

congestion. He said it is a

health and safety issue due

to New Brighton having

limitations on its entry and

exit points.

“The roadworks 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.

But the city council

confirmed the Guy Fawkes

seas in a sustainable light.

The Zero Carbon Bill,

plastic-free movement,

ECan youth engagement

schemes and the Burnside

High School environment

group’s amazing tree

planting work are all

examples of beacons

of change for our local

communities.

However, these are

schemes all youth – not just

those perceived as leaders

or future politicians –

should be part of. I believe

young people have a calling

to break the stereotypes of a

teenage culture and actively

engage in issues like

plastic pollution, be it by

partaking in conversations,

staying in campaign

loops or minimising

their individual plastic

footprints.

To do this, the

facilitation of accessible

events, platforms and

conversations with a range

of Christchurch youth

is key. I believe that it is

initiatives like these, led

by youth, for youth, that

give our city the best

hope of achieving a truly

sustainable future.

Fireworks event under review

event will go ahead as

previous years and, if there

are any changes, they will

not be implemented this

year. The city council’s

Sparks, New Year’s Eve

and KidsFest events are

also under review as part

of the Community Events

Implementation Plan

process.

About 500 residents will

be surveyed city-wide on

the events. The fireworks

have been running at the

pier since 1997.

Readers respond to an

article about Northwood

residents continuing their

battle to upgrade the

intersection of Main North

Rd, Northwood Blvd and

Radcliffe Rd, which they

believe is dangerous

Caleb Ward – The council

asked a few years ago for the public

to make informal submissions

via the comments section on The

Press website on intersections

needing improving. Many people

suggested a right turn arrow for

cars turning out of Radcliffe Rd.

So what did they do? Put in a left

turning arrow.

Brian Tones – Teach drivers

to be more considerate.

Megan Malone – I use this

intersection nearly every day. It

works as long as people know

the road rules. It’s not just this

intersection, the problem is

nationwide. There needs to be a

campaign to promote the rule

about turning.

Nicola Joy Fidler – We were

driving past there one day and

there was a man lying on the

road. Don’t know whether he was

hit or fell over. Hope he was okay.

Jill van der Plas – It’s a terrible

intersection. It needs right

turning arrows that actually turn

green so that people know they

are going to be able to turn right

eventually and therefore don’t

have to take risks.

CHANGES COMING: Residents want safety improvements at

the intersection of Harewood, Breens and Gardiners Rds.

Sarah Elizabeth – If you

know this intersection then it’s

not an issue if you follow the

rules. I go there every week and

have no issue. I wait till I know.

Rushing isn’t worth it.

Mark Odgers – It’s pretty

simple, just put in right turning

arrows from Radcliffe to Main

North Rd. Put signs on both

sides telling them to turn into the

inside lane. The pedestrian crossing

needs to be moved as that is

causing massive build-ups making

people impatient and forcing

them to make stupid decisions

and run red lights.

Barry Clarke – If they had

Redwood butcher goes mobile

A MOBILE butcher from

Redwood has taken off in

Rolleston.

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,

such as Rolleston and West

Melton.

“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

Gerry

Brownlee

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 the South Point

complex in Faringdon, Rolleston,

on Thursdays, from 2-6.30pm,

and 9am-5.30pm outside

Vegeland on Marshland Rd on

weekends.

“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.

this is extra scary) as people take

unnecessary risks to cross or turn

without checking to see where

other traffic may be turning too.

Constantly there

are piles of debris

from crashes at the

corners and fences

of homes busted.

Maybe no one has

died there yet but

are we willing to

wait? The person

that dies may be

one of the many

Breens, Harewood or Cotswold

pupils who have to get across that

busy intersection.

What I haven’t read much

about in all this is the fact that

Harewood Rd has become so

much busier since there is no

longer a right turn off Russley Rd

on to Wairakei Rd, so more people

need to use Harewood Rd.

So, to answer the question, yes,

I think NZTA should help fund

lights at this intersection and

the council should stop mucking

around saying there are other options.

No, there aren’t, and

the fact they are putting unnecessary

lights in at places

such as outside the Papanui

Club on Sawyers Arms Rd

and the Sawyers Arms Rd

entrance to Northlands

Mall shows they have no

idea what they are doing,

nor have they consulted

with the people that actually

drive those roads.

FREE digital media course, with NCEA built in

For those looking for a role that combines

artistic and digital talents, then this outstanding,

FREE, entry level course has just been announced

by local Training Provider Trainme, for those

wishing to pursue animation, graphic design,

photography or digital media as a career.

The course covers introduction to multi-media

techniques such as video production, drawing,

animation and photography. Students will create

their own design concepts and collaborate with

other students on creative projects.

This course is FREE to students aged 16 to 19

and they only have to have NCEA 1 to join.

Students without NCEA 1 can be admitted, if they

show artistic or digital aptitude.

“Many feel that school is not working for them

or they left without qualifications,” says Gary

Taylor, Campus Manager with tertiary educator

Trainme. “While not necessarily academically

minded, they do have artistic talents and are very

much into digital technology.”

“This FREE six-month Trainme course, combines

these in a very hands-on, practical way, giving

them an intro into various digital media. This way,

they can decide which direction to pursue as their

career focus.”

“As an NZQA approved programme, NCEA

credits are built in, so if they apply themselves, they

can graduate with a New Zealand Certificate in Arts

and Design Level 2, as well as gaining credits

towards NCEA level 1 or 2.” Says Taylor.

“NCEA results will depend on how many credit

they bring to the course to start with, but as it’s a fun

subject, it won’t feel like school at all.”

Successful Graduates from this programme could

pathway into higher study in media arts, which could

include graphic design, video production,

photography or one of the many emerging digitalbased

careers. Places are limited, so students are

encouraged to apply as soon as they can.

tell you there are many problems

there without lights. I have seen

many near misses there, it is

only a question of time. If we

can waste millions of

dollars on a roof for a

rugby stadium, why

can’t we have a set of

lights on that intersection?

It is downright

as usual it seems that

we have to wait until

something happens

there. As usual the

head is in the sand.

Yimei Lu – I am a resident

living in the Bishopdale area

and I used to travel through

that intersection every morning.

I found it is really difficult to

turn right from Gardiners Rd to

Harewood Rd. I could sometime

be stuck there for 5–7min and I

could see there was a huge queue

behind me. I also have a fiveyear-old

boy at Cotswold School

at the moment. In a few years

he will need to walk to Breens

Intermediate everyday. I will be

extremely concerned about his

safety as he needs to get across

the busy Harewood Rd at the

busiest times. I don’t understand

why installing lights will make

the intersection more unsafe. I

believe the traffic lights can at

least make sure people who need

to cross the road do so safely.

If council and NZTA take into

account the kids nearby from

Breens Intermediate, this should

definitely be done. I will be voting

to have lights installed at this

intersection.

Papanui High old boy earns

basketball scholarship in US

• By Jacob Page

FORMER PAPANUI High

School basketballer Carl Isitt

has had to be patient to earn

his United States scholarship

opportunity.

The 20-year-old, who lives in

Casebrook, has not been able

to play a competitive game this

year so he can remain eligible for

a scholarship.

His patience has paid off after

he signed on to play college basketball

for the Central Methodist

College in Fayette, Missouri.

Isitt is the son of former Rams

player Paul Isitt who was a hardworker

on the court during the

1990s.

“With dad being so involved,

we always had basketball being

around us and, while I played

cricket and rugby, basketball was

always a top priority,” he said.

Isitt said this year had been

challenging to maintain form

and fitness while staying focused

on his core goal of landing a

scholarship. “To remain eligible

I haven’t been able to play a competitive

game at all in 2018 and,

while I’ve been able to train with

leave for the US next month and

have his first game against Park

ST ANDREW’S College striker

Declan Hickford’s right boot is

showing no signs of failing him.

The 17-year-old has scored

29 goals in eight games in the

Connetics first XI secondary

school competition, including

seven last week in a 9-2 win over

Lincoln High School that lifted

his team to third.

He has scored 90 goals for

the first XI since debuting four

years ago. The tally is believed

to be a school record and, with

four games to go in the competition,

plus a national secondary

schools campaign still to come,

Hickford is likely to hit triple

figures at some point.

“There are times when I think

to myself that the great run I’ve

had must come to an end at

some point, but that’s my job –

to score goals,” he said.

CHBS boxer extends

winning record to 16-1

• By Jacob Page

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High

School 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

Burwwod 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

Daniel Meehan 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.

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.

As a result, the lease has been

placed on hold.

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.

TWO BURNSIDE Primary

School teachers have been

recognised for designing an

innovative oral language

programme to help new entrant

pupils struggling with language

skills.

Trudi Browne and Nic

Rickard were one of five

winners of The Education Hub’s

inaugural Bright Spots Awards.

The awards recognise innovative

education initiatives

to address challenges facing

New Zealand schools. After

realising that up to 70 per cent

of children starting at their

school lacked the necessary

language skills to be confident

learners, the pair teamed up

with speech language therapist

Sharne Quickenden to develop

a bespoke oracy framework.

It comprises specific tools to

support pupils to build oral language

skills and an accompanying

professional development

programme for teachers.

The Education Hub chairwoman

Maury Leyland said the

importance of oral language

skills as a foundation for early

literacy is well established in

educational research.

The winners receive funding

Samoan experience for Christ’s students

The backstory of

T he A natomy of M elancholy • P art i: I dentity

by

Simon van der Sluijs

*Melancholy: a feeling of pensive sadness, typically with no obvious cause.

**Identity: the fact of being who or what a person or thing is.

I have always been fascinated by trying to visualise human nature, who are we, what

drives us, what moves us, and my personal experiences were more than enough to

explore. A trilogy to allow myself to create a deeper narrative to be more universal

and existential rather than being just about me. I chose ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’

because I feel that it best represents my work and the person I am. Part 1 is about

identity because to me it is the source of melancholy and so that is where the trilogy

needs to start. It shows drawings, paintings and small objects.

Generally the work on show deals with the desire to belong, to be allowed to be, through

confirmation of our fellow beings, and of getting damaged in the process.

There are two separate sections within the exhibition: ‘Little Sorrows’ and ‘Intimacies’

Little Sorrows

Our pets contribute to our identity. Inevitably having a pet also means that the day will

come we have to farewell it ‘Little Sorrows’ is what can happen when we can’t let go

and try to either recreate the friend we were so fond of or make an effort in taxidermy

to preserve through small paintings of mice, hamsters and goldfish and faux taxidermy

objects, mainly in ‘museum boxes’ and under bell jars.

Intimacies (Explicit content)

Sexual identity is the way we think of ourselves in relationship to whom we are

romantically or sexually attracted to. Growing up in a Catholic environment sexuality was

definitely not a topic of discussion or acknowledged as an important part of being. This is

the reason I have made these paintings so small, they fit in a locket and can therefore be

‘locked away’ only to be enjoyed in a private atmosphere.

Part 1 Identity August 2018, Part 2 Dissectum April 2019 and Part 3 Lost and Found

November 2019. All shown at Little River Gallery.

Shoddy repairs

NOR’WEST NEWS

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.

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 OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

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 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

The apartment suffere damage

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

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

title,” he said.

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
