Plea to keep fireworks in Brighton

Review of

event’s future

under way

BRIGHT LIGHTS: The New

Brighton fireworks display is

under review as a result of

health and safety concerns

over traffic management

at the event. PHOTO:

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

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.

But the city council confirmed

the Guy Fawkes event will go

ahead and, if there were to be

any changes, they would not be

implemented this year.

The Sparks, New Year’s Eve

and KidsFest events run by

the city council are also under

review as part of the Community

Events Implementation Plan

process.

About 500 residents will

be surveyed city-wide on city

council events. It wants feedback

about which events people had

attended over the past two years,

the locations of the events,

parking and the city council’s

event calender. Paper Plus New

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

like Redcliffs or Sumner where

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.

the city council continue

to hold its annual fireworks

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.

Potholes bug board member

• By Anan Zaki

A COMMUNITY board

member says ratepayers in

Halswell are being let down by

slow city council services.

Halswell Ward community

board member Ross McFarlane

raised the issue at the last

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board meeting after

the city council failed to repair a

number of potholes he reported.

He said rural Halswell was

more prone to potholes than

other parts of the city.

“We’ve got so much traffic

coming via non-mainstream

roads because of roadworks on

the Southern Motorway,” Mr

McFarlane said.

Mr McFarlane said he reported

nine potholes but only one was

repaired.

Most of the potholes he

reported were on Marshs Rd,

Halswell.

“These are only like 5m across,

with no centre lines, they are

really rural roads which are

copping an absolute pounding.

“I would hate to think that

people could swerve to avoid a

pothole,” Mr McFarlane said.

Potholes are a road hazard the

city council should address as

soon as they appear, he said.

When asked about Mr

McFarlane’s concerns, the city

council city streets maintenance

manager Mark Pinner said fixing

potholes was weather dependent.

“Work to repair such areas can

be limited and delayed until we

can ensure we can work and

complete what we start in dry

conditions.”

Roading contractors needed

to make sure the road surfacing

remained waterproof, Mr Pinner

said.

Contractors had also been

asked to speed up works, he said.

“Council’s contractors have

increased their resources to

he said. Areas such as the rural

more common will be targeted

for more frequent repairs over

VEHICLE TAGGING

Police say they are still

investigating the car tagging

incidents in Hornby earlier this

month. A number of cars were

spray painted with rude phrases

such as “pedo van free candy?” and

“drugs?” Male genitalia was also

spray painted on cars. A police

spokeswoman said there have

been no arrests or updates in the

incidents.

STREET NAMES

Two of the proposed Halswell

subdivision street names have

been changed due to potential for

confusion. Ned Paterson St was

proposed for the Halswell Downs

subdivision but the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board opted against the name as

there is a John Paterson Dr nearby,

which may cause confusion.

Beamsgate Rd was chosen

instead. In the Stoneridge Downs

subdivision, Kepler Ridge Ln was

chosen instead of Quarry Rim Ln

as there is a track named Quarry

Rim Walk in the area.

Teen caught in burglary inquiry

• By Anan Zaki

POLICE HAVE made a

breakthrough in their hunt

for a group of teenagers

who are suspected of

burglaries.

A 14-year-old has been

apprehended in relation

to one of the burglaries in

Hornby.

Police say eight others

aged between 13 and 15 are

suspected of what is known

as “door-stepping.”

Door-stepping is the

act of stealing items left

outside homes.

Senior Constable Bruce

Ward said police were able

to match a recovered pair

of running shoes with the

14-year-old after publicity.

The owner of the shoes

came forward after recognising

it from the news

article and it meant police

could confirm they were

stolen, he said.

An earlier article in also

prompted more calls about

door step burglaries in

Hornby and Wigram, the

latest being 10 days ago.

“We had three other

people who phoned in to

report that they have lost

items but haven’t done

anything about it,” Senior

Constable Ward said.

Police believe the latest

calls meant the teenagers

are still active.

Police are yet to decide if

the boy will be charged or

not and the outcome depended

on a Youth Justice

family group conference in

four weeks time.

Constable Ward said.

Police are still seeking

the owners of a $300 pair

of Nike Air Jordan shoes,

an Avanti bicycle and

Razor scooter, which were

stolen in the door-stepping

thefts.

The remaining eight are

still at large and the police

will only be able to apprehend

them when more

stolen items are reported

and owners come forward,

Senior Constable Ward

said.

•If the recovered

items belong to you or

if valuables were stolen

from outside your

property, phone Senior

Constable Bruce Ward

at the Hornby Police

Station on 363 7435.

Clock tower danger warning

PEOPLE attempting to

break into the earthquakedamaged

Scarborough clock

tower are putting themselves

in a potentially dangerous

situation, the city council is

warning.

The heritage clock tower

is currently surrounded by

scaffolding and has fencing

around it, but that has not

stopped some people from

trying to gain entry.

“The reason why the

clock tower is fenced off is

because we’ve had engineers

working to determine how

much damage it sustained

in the earthquakes and what

needs to be done to fix it,’’

said city council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge.

“The assessment shows while

the clock tower is structurally

sound, it requires extensive

repairs. Some of the surface

masonry is loose and could

fall off if we got another strong

quake.

“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.

The repairs to the clock

tower are likely to take

several more months to

complete and will involve

removing all the clock faces

so they can be restored by

specialists.

The scaffolding on the

Scarborough tower was

installed in March and is

costing $280 a week.

It is believed to be the first

time the clock faces have been

restored since being built in

the 1930s.

People have also tried to

gain entry to New Brighton’s

damaged clock tower.

St Martins student’s academic success

SAVANAH STEWART never

expected much of herself.

But now, she is an inspiring

example of how study can

change your life.

Despite leaving school with

just NCEA level 2, the 29-yearold

Māori student from St

Martins is now on the cusp

of achieving a degree in an

academically demanding subject.

Not only will Miss Stewart

soon graduate from Ara Institute

of Canterbury with a Bachelor of

Medical Imaging, she’s received

a number of academic awards

during her studies and won six

scholarships this year alone,

including a Pegasus Health

scholarship for Māori.

She never expected much of

herself.

“When I was at school, noone

ever told me about the true

extent of my options, or how

important study was,” she said.

“University was never discussed

as an option for me, and I

certainly never saw myself doing

a degree.”

Miss Stewart said she didn’t

study for exams at high school

and “didn’t really care if I passed

or not.”

Five years ago, while living in

ACADEMIC: Savanah Stewart is about to graduate from Ara with

a Bachelor of Medical Imaging.

Australia and working in hospitality,

Miss Stewart stumbled

across what would become her

new career.

“I was looking on Seek [website]

and saw all these well-paid

jobs for sonographers and

radiographers. I didn’t know

what they were so I checked

them out on Google. I thought

they sounded cool; practical,

academic - a good mixture of

things,” she said.

Excited by the idea of a whole

new career path, Miss Stewart

returned to New Zealand to do

a six-month pre-health course at

Ara to gain the academic skills

she needed to apply for the Bachelor

of Medical Imaging.

“That was a really good

course,” she said. “It set me up

really well.”

Despite the stiff competition

for places on the degree, Miss

Stewart’s determination and

preparation impressed the selectors

at Ara and her application

was accepted.

She’s repaid their belief in her

by working hard and excelling

in her studies, winning awards

for clinical practice, professional

practice and top academic

results.

Miss Stewart hopes her experience

might encourage others to

consider tertiary education.

She’s recently been working on

her Te Reo skills and is becoming

more involved in her marae

at Rāpaki.

Her goal is use her growing

tribal connections to encourage

young Māori to think about their

career opportunities more ambitiously

than she did as a teenager.

At Ara, Savanah has found the

best training available.

Ara’s Medical Imaging

programme was the first in the

world to use virtual reality training

developed in Christchurch.

In addition, the programme

recently relocated to the brand

new Manawa health research

and education facility in the

Te papa Hauora/Christchurch

Health Precinct where students

will train alongside health professionals

and researchers.

YOUTH GRANTS

The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

granted $2500 from its youth

development fund to several

groups last week. A $500

grant was given to St Thomas

of Canterbury College for

two students travelling to

Japan as part of an under-15

rugby tour. The board also

granted $500 each to three

athletes who are travelling

to the under-23 and junior

respectively. Another grant

10k for Camp Twitch

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 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.

Enrol Now to start 20th August. Contact Trainme

at their Addington campus for more information on

than the 42 previously recorded.

The communities of Banks

Peninsula are completely

reliant on rain

water, which is

absorbed into

the ground and

comes to the

surface at the

springs.

Canterbury

Fiona Nicol

University

lecturer Sam

Hampton presented his research

on the hydrogeology of the peninsula

in Lyttelton.

Dr Hampton worked with a

team of students from Frontiers

Abroad Aotearoa and other

university scientists, mapping

the geology and hydrology of

the peninsula.

Environment Canterbury

had previously mapped only

42 springs in the area, but

the local community always

thought there were a lot more

than that.

ECan chief scientist Tim

Davie said Dr Hampton’s

research had substantially

improved their understanding

of water sources on Banks

Peninsula.

His findings gave a “better

idea of how to protect water

quality in the source area of

the spring water so that we can

maintain really good water

quality for Banks Peninsula.”

As well as coming up with

an accurate map of springs,

the researchers also found that

springs located in forested areas

had higher flow rates than those

in grassy areas, and suggested

ways to improve and protect

spring water sources.

The springs are fed by rain

water and Dr Hampton said

where there was more forest

cover, there seemed to be more

precipitation and therefore more

recharge.

“What we’re potentially seeing

here is [that] deforestation has

had a massive influence in terms

of the flow rate and output of

the springs.”

Given the findings, Dr

Hampton said springs could be

a secure, good-quality source of

would need to be done on

a bay-by-bay basis.

Banks Peninsula Water Management

Zone Joint Committee

community representative Fiona

Nicol said peninsula communities

had managed spring water

well for the last 100 years and

the council could learn from

that.

“We can work with the council,”

she said, “but it has to be

community led.”

Lucky escape

after crash

down bank

in Rapaki

THE OCCUPANTS of a

small four-wheel drive were

lucky to walk away without

injuries after their vehicle slid

on ice and rolled 5m down a

bank near Rapaki.

The accident happened on

Governors Bay Rd between

Lyttelton and Governors Bay.

Police, ambulance and

the Lyttelton fire brigade

attended.

Lyttelton Volunteer Fire

Brigade chief fire officer Mark

Buckley said when the car

rolled over the bank, it landed

on its side on large “springy”

bushes, which saved it from

travelling any further down

the hill.

Mr Buckley said while the

two female occupants did not

sustain any injuries, they were

transported to Christchurch

Hospital to be checked.

He said they were lucky

the car had not rolled further

down the hill.

The vehicle sustained some

damage, but “not a heck of a

lot in comparison to what you

thought it might have,” said

Mr Buckley.

Top butcher goes mobile

ELITE MEATS owner Corey

Winder has made his Bush Inn

butchery mobile.

Mr Winder has extended his

business by setting up a moveable

butchery from a small truck

that parks up in Marshland Rd

and Farrington, Rolleston.

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.

“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. ​

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.

StAC striker nets 29

• By Jacob Page

ST ANDREW’S striker

Declan Hickford’s right

boot is showing no signs of

failing him.

The 17-year-old, who

lives in Westmorland, has

scored 29 goals in eight

games for St Andrew’s

College in the Connetics

First XI secondary school

competition. That includes

seven last week in a 9-2

win over Lincoln High

School last Wednesday 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.

Hickford, who has been

a regular in Canterbury

age-group teams is also in

his first season with the

Selwyn United Mainland

Premier League team.

He said he is loving the

challenge of matching up

against the men.

“The physicality is clearly

something that takes

time to adjust too but also

matching that with the

speed of play,” he said.

“Sometimes the secondary

school games can be

played at a friendly-type

pace and that’s certainly

not the case with the MPL

SOUTHERN VIEW

teams.”

Hickford said his next

individual focus would

be on trying to earn a US

scholarship.

“To get a quality education

while testing my skills

against a high standard of

play would be something

I’d like to do,” he said,

Southern Scorpions team named

• By Jacob Page

SOUTHERN SCORPIONS

rugby league 17s coach Archie

Jacobs believes he has the squad

which can contend for a national

title in October.

The Canterbury 15s and

17s trial squads have been announced

with players from

Halswell, Hornby, Riccarton,

Celebration, Aranui, Papanui

and Linwood joining players

from the West Coast, Nelson and

Aoraki regions.

Both teams were picked from

the Southern Zone tournament

held on the West Coast earlier

this month.

Jacobs said his 17s side was

primed to go deep into the competition

after a rebuilding year in

2017 where they finished fourth.

“We took away nine 16-yearolds

last year so I’m hoping that

experience will show through

and help the new guys this year,”

he said.

“We certainly will have plenty

of speed - our attack won’t be an

issue at all,” Jacobs said.

“Top four will be an absolute

minimum and then after that

we’ll take it a game at a time.”

Both 15s and 17s will have

a final trial on August 12 at

Wainoni Park with Jacobs aiming

to have a game against the

Canterbury 19s as well.

The 17s squad will be trimmed

to 21 players.

“This is my sixth time going to

nationals and I think this is the

best bunch of players we’ve had,”

he said.

The 15s finished sixth last year,

ending their tournament with

a 18-10 defeat to the Central

Vipers.

Coach Walter Wilson said the

aim was to crack the top four

this year but he was keen to get

his team more games together

between now and October.

“Geographically we are very

spread out so getting regular

time together is a challenge,” he

said.

“Ideally we’d like to play some

school rugby teams under rugby

league rules to help us prepare

and if there was a school out

there who was keen, that’d be

great,” Wilson said.

The competition will run from

October 1 to 5.

CHBS boxer extends

winning record to 16-1

• By Jacob Page

Tuesday July 31 2018

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.

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.

SOUTHERN VIEW

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.

Second chance for bus feedback

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

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

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.

Shoddy repairs

SOUTHERN VIEW

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.”

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

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

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

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 – coincidenta ly 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 se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A W OLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

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

title,” he said.

U per Ri carton butcher Corey

Winder was part of the Pure

South Sharp Blacks team.

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-

has b en given the gr en light 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
