HAD ENOUGH: Harewood resident Graeme Barber is tired of the effect large oak trees are having on his neighbourhood.

Massive oak trees ‘must go’

ago, they were told by the reserve

developer, “it won’t affect you.”

Now, the trees in Pasadena Reserve

are 16m tall, the equivalent

height of a five-storey building,

with a 15m spread.

We’ve been trusted to look after hundreds

of properties all over Christchurch.

You can trust us to look after yours too.

A SPLIT has emerged in a

community board over a bid to

extend alcohol restrictions.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Board deputy

chairman Aaron

Campbell

told Nor’West

News last week

he would like

to see alcohol

bans extended

to include

areas such as

Elmwood Park,

Sam MacDonald

Roto Kohatu Reserve in Harewood,

and McLeans Island.

However, board chairman Sam

MacDonald contacted Nor’West

News to say other members on the

board, including himself, do not

support Mr Campbell’s view.

Mr MacDonald believes the board

needs to be careful about becoming

a “nanny-state” to residents and

“imposing unnecessary and

punitive rules when there doesn’t

appear to be an issue.”

“He is entitled to his view, but

that would mean taking away the

right for people who play touch

on Elmwood Park and have a

social beer, it would be restricting

that kind of stuff,” said Mr

MacDonald. •Turn to page 5

from the editor’s desk

I GET the feeling there is a bit of

competition brewing between Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community Board

chairman Sam MacDonald and the board

deputy Aaron Campbell (page 1).

The spark was Campbell’s views in

Nor’West News last week on an alcohol ban.

MacDonald was quick to let us know it wasn’t his or other

board members’ views. Nothing wrong with that of course.

MacDonald points out an alcohol ban at Elmwood Park could

have an impact on sports people.

There is an election coming in 2019 and I’ll bet both

MacDonald and Campbell - who come form different political

backgrounds - will put their hands-up to make it onto full

council. Testy times ahead?

$25k more for Redwood Plunket rooms

Asbestos and

black mould

discovered

• By Sophie Cornish

ASBESTOS AND “significant”

black mould has been found

in the earthquake-damaged

Redwood Plunket rooms,

increasing the cost of the repair

project by $25,000.

The repair work was originally

planned to be finished at the

end of June, but has now been

pushed back to November.

In June last year, Mayor Lianne

Dalziel questioned whether

repairing the old

building was in

the city council’s

best interests.

She said it was a

challenge to make

the decision to

Dalziel

grant a further

$45,000 for the

project, which was

originally budgeted at $30,000,

as the city council was not

provided with a detailed report.

Ms Dalziel said the repairs

would only get the building to

67 per cent of the new building

standard.

“It will still be old, still be

However, Ms Dalziel said those

comments were made during

a debate when further funding

A city council spokeswoman

said Ms Dalziel’s view was not

supported, but in her role as

mayor she supports the decision

that was made.

An extra $25,000 is required to

remove the asbestos and mould,

bringing the budget to $100,000.

A city council spokesman said

the process to get a contractor

has been delayed due to the

initial cost coming in over the

project’s budget allocation.

Once started the project is

expected to take three months

to complete. The building will

be home to a social worker, who

is funded by the Papanui-Innes

Community Board, and a

community gathering space.

When applying for additional

funding, the community board

said the facility was desperately

needed in the area.

Debris from trees

cause residents anguish

•From page 1

“These trees are depressing

for us due to the shading and

litter over many months of the

year. Four neighbours . . . have

to cope with copious quantities

of leaves, acorns and seedlings

generated by these oaks.”

However, city council staff

have told Mr Barber that the

trees are “perfectly healthy” but

he believes they need to look at

the bigger picture.

Mr Barber said the reserve

department has a strong priority

to protect trees.

“I’m dealing with people who

are placing trees in higher priority

than people . . . yes, that’s

their job and no one wants to see

healthy trees cut down but when

they’re the height of a five-level

building, there is a problem.”

Pasadena Pl resident Inez

Stevens purchased her home 12

years ago, when the trees were

much smaller, she said.

Now, the 91-year-old said she

has spent hundreds of dollars

paying a gardener to deal with

the leaves and someone else to

clear her gutters.

She fears for her health and is

afraid she may roll or break an

ankle, due to the acorns littered

on her property.

Following a complaint to

council last year regarding the

continual noise of acorns landing

on their roof, contractors

removed 5m branches overhanging

onto their property.

In his recent submission to the

community board, Mr Barber

asked when the rights and wellbeing

of people over shadow the

rights of healthy trees.

“That wrong decision needs to

be corrected by the removal of

these six trees. Something that’s

fit with context . . . the council

staff I have spoken to and the

community board agreed that

trees like that wouldn’t be

planted in a reserve of this size

these days,” he said.

City council acting manager

operations Ryan Rolston said

council now has a set of guidelines

in its infrastructure design

standards, which assist in tree

selection.

“It is unlikely council would

introduce this species of oak

presently unless requested by

residents.”

Mr Rolston said the trees are

healthy and protected by the

Christchurch District Plan.

“Consequently, council staff

have no reason to pursue their

removal.”

CHRISTCHURCH

STARTING 20 AUGUST 2018

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

COASTAL AND Burwood

wards councillors David East and

Glenn Livingstone have pledged

to fight against the annual New

Brighton fireworks event being

taken away from the pier.

They say they will work hard

to retain the New Brighton Guy

Fawkes in the area.

It comes after the event has

come under scrutiny from the

city council as part of a city wide

review of all council- run events.

It confirmed last week the

event would go ahead in November,

and if there were to be

any changes, they would not be

implemented this year.

Cr East said he would be debating

strongly and working hard to

persuade other city councillors of

the merit and worth of retaining

a display on the coast.

He said the items he would be

stressing is the event makes for

great viewing, all fireworks land

in the sea, making it easy to clean

up and no one is at risk of being

hit, he said.

“This has been an integral part

of the event programme of the

east,” he said.

Cr Livingstone said the fireworks

should stay.

“The question has been raised

before over safety concerns but

my view is wherever you hold

the fireworks there is going to be

safety concerns that need to be

addressed anyway.”

He said he suspects council

would be faced with a unanimous

resolution from the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board to

keep the event where it is.

City council community

support, governance and partnerships

John Filsell said last

week for a number of years it

has received feedback on traffic

management congestion.

But Cr East said while there is

difficulties for traffic exiting the

event, the east has been compounded

by ongoing roadworks.

Cr East suggested the event was

“Guy Fawkes has little significance

Chlorine removed from north-west water

• By Julia Evans

NEARLY 30,000 people in the

north-west of the city are now

drinking unchlorinated water.

Remedial works have been

the Burnside and Farrington

chlorine-free during low water

“Where the demand exceeds

Board chiefs spar over alcohol ban proposal

•From page 1

He said the matter has not

yet been discussed by the board

and a date has not been set for a

submissions committee to convene.

However, Mr Campbell said

the current alcohol ban in

Merivale, which could be extended,

is a night-time ban only,

so that wouldn’t be an issue.

“You aren’t going to be calling

the cops on people having a barbecue

and quiet beer . . . it’s up to

police to use their judgement to

enforce,” he said.

“It doesn’t have to be a fine, they

can confiscate the alcohol or give

them a verbal warning. No everyone’s

going to be hoarded off and

handcuffed, I think the nannystate

comment is dismissive and

not quite cognitive of what the

idea of the measure might be.”

Board member Shirish Paranjape

said he would like to discuss

the matter together with the

board before commenting on it.

Waimairi Ward councillor

Raf Manji said he has not seen

any formal report on the matter,

The city council is working

through the same process at a

stop chlorination in further

reserves.”

Fendalton Ward councillor

Jamie Gough said he agrees Mr

MacDonald and is surprised

Mr Campbell would express his

STREET WISE is providing

help of a different kind to the

city’s homeless.

Merivale’s River Jayden

helped found the charity three

months ago while working as

a building apprentice in the

central city.

It provides food, clothes and

advocacy for those sleeping

rough.

“We’ve been going for three

months and it’s been pretty full

on,”said Ms Jayden, who is the

charity’s chairwoman.

“We give the guys coffee,

cakes, chats. It’s the fun stuff

mainly, but through that we

can also find out about their

situation and refer them on to

housing programmes or drug

and alcohol support.”

While homelessness is

“definitely” a big problem in the

central city, there is a less visible

homeless population living on

the outskirts which people may

be less aware of, Ms Jayden said.

“It’s those sleeping on

couches, in garages, in cars. It’s

a massive issue – 41,000 people

experience homelessness in

New Zealand. Of them, most

are living with whanau and

friends in overcrowded homes.”

She said a small percentage of

homeless people sleep on the

street.

Funding to support the work

Street Wise does is tight, but Ms

Jayden said “there are creative

ways to find the money to do

these projects. I’m confident we

can make it happen. We have a

good amount of support from

investors.”

A community pot luck for

homeless whanau was held

at non-profit cafe Exchange

Christchurch on Saturday.

The function, called

Everybody Eats provided free

haircuts, barista training,

care packages and baking,

motivational speakers, dinner

and an open jam session.

Ms Jayden said she eventually

wanted Street Wise to provide

a transitional facility to support

people to move into permanent

housing.

Burnside students vie for spelling bee titles

FIVE BURNSIDE High School

students will attempt to gain a

spot in the national spelling bee

grand-final today.

Top spellers from around the

central and upper South Island

have travelled to Christchurch

to compete at the regional semifinal.

Now in its 14 th year, the

New Zealand Spelling Bee is a

competitive spelling event aimed

at encouraging year 0-10 students

to improve their knowledge of

the English language, as well as

their spelling capabilities, comprehension

and communication

skills.

The year 9 and 10 students

competing today earned their

places out of a field of hundreds

of spellers from more than 100

secondary schools and colleges

around the country.

The competition began with

a written classroom test, which

found the top 200 spellers in the

country to go head-to-head in six

regional semi-finals.

The top three students from

each region will then compete for

the title of New Zealand Spelling

Bee champion at the national

final in Wellington on November

3. The winner will receive the

Spelling Bee Trophy and $5000

to put towards their academic

studies.

Founder Janet Lucas started

the competition in 2005 after

being inspired by Spellbound,

a documentary film about the

United States-based Scripps National

Spelling Bee. The calibre of

spellers improves every year, said

Ms Lucas. She cites a nail-biting

final last year which she describes

as “the toughest and longest competition

we have ever had”.

“The talent is stronger than

ever, and I can’t wait to find the

best spellers . . . the New Zealand

Spelling Bee is fiercely competitive

in a fun way. It’s a sport with

an intellectual focus – students

train hard and prepare to compete,

which is clear to see from

Gavin Topp

Gail Ker

Fire rages, homes at risk

the excellent results.”

The competition has grown

significantly since 2014, when

the Wright Family Foundation

became the programme’s sole

sponsor. About 800 primary

schools and intermediate schools

now sign up for the programme

every year. Pusillanimous was

the winning word at last year’s

national final, meaning ‘lacking

in courage.’ The national final

was won by St Margaret’s College

student Lucy Jessep.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Readers respond to a

story about Ilam MP Gerry

Brownlee joining the

battle to get the Breens/

Harewood/Gardiners Rds

intersection upgraded to

lights and wants NZTA to

fund part of the upgrade

Gary Knight – In spite of

opposing views by some, the

installation of traffic lights at

the 10-lane convergence of the

Breens Rd, Gardiners Rd and

Harewood Rd intersection would

be a pro-active step. Placed at

94 of the 100 most dangerous

Christchurch intersections, and

at close proximity to Breens

Intermediate and other schools

within a 1km distance heralds

the priority for these lights. Planning

roles of NZTA encompasses

investment in transport activities

inclusive of local New Zealand

roads. This would therefore

surely deem funding for this

electronic installation to be the

sole responsibility of this crown

entity as opposed to inclusion of

revenue from any long-term city

council plan. Within this context

and condoned by Aaron Keown

and Gerry Brownlee, the installation

of lights at this volatile

intersection should be sanctioned

from a safety community perspective.

Ross Smith – Don’t let

Brownlee near it, It will end up

costing billions.

Tiffany Cavanaugh – The

intersection does not have the

traffic through it to merit a light.

Roundabout maybe, but certainly

not a light.

Grace Frame – Should’ve

been there ages ago.

Steve Burge – He’s fighting

for traffic lights? Shame he let so

many people down with their

houses.

Damian Elley – Sorry Gerry,

we don’t have money for that, we

are still trying to sort our houses

and roads after the mess you

left – thanks.

Carolyn Fifield – Anywhere

there are right-hand turns across

two lanes of traffic and into two

lanes of traffic needs lights. Given

the upgrade of the Northern expressway

which feeds traffic onto

Gardiners Rd, and especially

in morning peak-hour traffic

when the expressway is back up

1km or more and when children

are going to school. There is a

greater need at this intersection

than Gardiners/Sawyers Arms

intersection.

Nicholas Smeaton – I had

to go through that intersection

yesterday, I didn’t even try, I

turned left and then hung a right

into Leacroft St. Why Sawyers

Arms/Gardiners received lights

and Harewood/Breens, Gardiners

didn’t, is a mystery to me,

perhaps a councillor or high level

city council manager lived near

the Sawyers/Gardiners intersection?

Education representatives

this month to discuss the

new enrolment zone for

Shirley Boys’ and Avonside

Girls’ High Schools

Vicki Ware – Prestons is

closer to Mairehau than QE

II, they weren’t included in the

zone. The school runs their own

zoning every three years I believe

they could include at that stage,

the zone is not well thought out.

South Brighton is included which

is further away than the school

original zone and Prestons. MoE

have failed everyone doing a consulting

through a school holiday

period and wasn’t well publicised

to the area. We were given options

of Mairehau and Haeata.

Prestons have Mairehau not far at

all. This was a closure by stealth

and a new high school should

be built in Richmond. There are

lots of feeder schools here that

will suffer due to no definite high

school options.

Don Gould – Simply no

engagement from the MoE on

this issue with the community.

Where is the data from the MoE

that these calls are being made

on? What is the plan for schooling

IMPORTANT: In this week’s Soapbox, a community board member discusses

transparency around the interactive touch wall for Tūranga, Christchurch’s new

central library.

Transparency in spending

is vitally important

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board member Shirish

Paranjape talks about

transparency in

governance

TRANSPARENCY is

one of the prime tenets in

governance, including local

governance.

Transparency is a very

broad subject and can

include transparency in

decision-making as well as

transparency in spending.

Transparency in spending

is critically important,

particularly when it is

someone else’s money.

As a country, New

Zealand can be justifiably

proud of its reputation

globally. If we look at the

indices published annually

by Transparency International,

New Zealand has

consistently been among

the top three. In 2017, New

Zealand had the No 1 position.

However, if we go by the

happenings around us, the

city of Christchurch will

perhaps not be a contender

for any such high ranking

for transparency. Sadly,

more than once, the city

council has come under

fire for not being transparent.

It is always a sorry state

of affairs when taxpayers

or ratepayers have to knock

the doors of the Ombudsman

against a city council.

Even worse when the directives/recommendations

issued by the Ombudsman

are ignored by the city

council, and the Ombudsman

has to knock on the

doors of the Attorney-

General to step in.

Without going through

who is right, who is wrong

– those in public offices, including

the employed staff

and elected members of

city council – must recognise

that if they are hiding

something – intentionally

or otherwise – things will

catch up sooner or later.

Also, full/more transparency

ought to be exercised

particularly when the price

of the item is high, or the

“value” is subjective. For

example, a million dollar

spend on a piece of art will

always incur more public

scrutiny than the same

amount spent on a roading

or pumping project.

The worst thing those

in office can do is either to

hide behind “commercial

sensitivity” or delay, block

or ignore requests.

Chances are, if one is

hiding something, something

is not right.

One can only hope

that the digital wall was

an isolated incident with

city council, and that the

authorities will not act as a

wall in future, figuratively

speaking.

Readers respond to

a proposal to move

a bus stop 150m on

Innes Rd, meaning

up to eight nearby

businesses could lose

their parking

Jo Kirwan – Definitely

a safety issue having the

bus stop so close to the

school and way too close to

the pedestrian crossing too.

As a parent of a child at

Mairehau Primary, I hope

people rethink this move.

Jan Driscoll – Typical

idiocy from the planners

. . . they don’t have a

clue, hope to heavens the

business owners get it

stopped.

Trevor Taylor –

Council doesn’t care. It will

say, the shoppers should be

riding a bike or taking the

bus, not driving evil cars.

Aaron Campbell – At

the top end of Innes Rd they

are moving two houses so it

is closer to a walk through,

just goes to show how lazy

and stupid this council really

is. The new proposed bus

stop is outside an elderly

person’s property who I

mow lawns for and she is

outraged, and rightly so,

come on council sharpen up.

I don’t know the cost to shift

a bus stop but I wouldn’t

have thought it would be a

cheap exercise, just another

way this council is wasting

ratepayers hard-earned

money.

Don Gould – Catch

the playback of yesterday’s

council meeting. Community

board isn’t keeping up

with events happening in

their area. These bus issues

aren’t even hitting their

radar. Lianne Dalziel had

more than a few interesting

comments to make.

StAC footballer off to Sydney FC

RISING STAR: St Andrew’s College footballer Riley Caswell is

off to train with Sydney FC.

ST ANDREW’S College

footballer Riley Caswell is one of

two Christchurch United stars

set to get an invaluable taste of

professional football at Sydney

FC, the glamour club in the

A-League.

Caswell and St Thomas’ Hamish

Cooper, who both turned 17

last month but already play for

the Christchurch United first

team, have been invited to train

with the Sydney club. Sydney FC

were last season’s A-League minor

premiers and losing finalists

and won the A-League in 2017.

The opportunity arose through

the contacts of Christchurch

United head coach Fernando

Lambert who coached at Manly

United in Sydney for five years.

Lambert also spent four months

as an apprentice coach at Sydney

FC with Robert Stanton, who

runs the club’s first team and

young league side.

Lambert says that both players

have a big potential and the

Yaldhurst-based Christchurch

United wants to give its players

the best opportunities to

develop.

“This may not be ideal for

our club as they will miss a few

games, but our club is focused

on developing great players for

the future and for New Zealand

football, and not just looking at

short-term results,” said Lambert.

“This trip to Sydney will show

our youngsters the next level

they need to be aiming for and

what is required in a professional

environment.”

Caswell headed over on

Sunday to train with the Sydney

first team, which is the feeder

team for the A-League squad and

regularly trains with the club’s

superstars.

The central defender feels he

has earned this opportunity with

his performances in Christchurch

United’s first team.

“I’m definitely excited and

slightly nervous, but I’m grateful

to have the opportunity to

travel across to Australia,” said

Caswell.

SPORTS

“It is a great opportunity to experience

what football is like in

other countries and to compete

against top players”

Cooper will go over the following

week to spend a fortnight

with the Sydney FC academy

squad. The right fullback is

grateful to Christchurch United

and coach Fernando Lambert for

giving him first-team experience

at 16 and to open the doors to

overseas opportunities.

“The move to Christchurch

United had definitely paid off

because I am not sure if I would

have had those opportunities at

my previous club,” says Hamish

who is pursuing a career in football,

as player or coach.

“At Sydney FC, I want to compare

myself to the other players

my age in Australia to see where

I need to improve,” said Cooper.

Late goal seals game for St Andrew’s College

• By Jacob Page

THE ST Andrew’s College first

XI boys hockey team used a

transplanted Timaruvian to take

the Connetic Challenge Shield

from Timaru Boys’ High School,

on Wednesday.

Former Timaru primary

and intermediate hockey star,

Harrison Darling scored the

lone goal of the game with two

minutes to play.

The win also helped St

Andrew’s earn a semi-final spot

in the Canterbury secondary

school competition.

The shield was introduced

at the start of the season and

initially given to Christ’s College

as champions before TBHS won

it off them.

St Andrew’s coach Ben Owers

said it was a thrilling game

against a quality team.

“It looks like both teams will

make the semi-finals and (TBHS)

had a goal disallowed so it was a

very good game,” he said.

Owers said having a maximum

of three more games in the

competition would be beneficial.

We even pulled off our goalie

in search for the goal which is

always good to try for when we

might need it at Rankin.”

The Rankin Cup is the top

tier national secondary school

tournament and is the pinnacle

of the secondary school season.

“It’s a tough tournament, not

just with the quality of teams but

the need to play seven games in

six days.”

St Andrew’s will play St Bede’s

on Friday in the final match of

the season where the shield is on

the line.

The Rankin Shield tournament

will be held at Blake Park in Mt

Maunganui from September

3 to September 8 with Owers

believing his team had the

chance to go deep into the

play-offs if their fitness was

maintained.

WINNERS: St Andrew’s College first XI hockey team won the Connetic Challenge Shield 1-0

from Timaru Boys’ High School on Wednesday. The Shield is the equivalent of rugby’s Ranfurly

Shield.

Special medal for successful golfer

WINNER: Waimairi Beach golfer, Allison Doell will

be presented with the Coronation Medal after she

won the national links competition for 2018.

• By Jacob Page

HAREWOOD resident

Allison Doell was

surprised as anyone when

she won the Coronation

Medal.

The medal was presented

to the New Zealand

Ladies Golf Union by

the Ladies Golf Union in

1907 to commemorate

the Coronation of King

Edward VII.

The medal, first played

for in 1908, is a silver division

award in the national

home links competition.

It is played for by women

Phen Day Dhargyey Ling (Tibetan)

- ‘A Centre for the Source of Benefit and

Happiness’ is the meaning of the name given

by the esteemed lama Lhagon Rinpoche.

The Christchurch people have the wonderful opportunity to engage in Tibetan Buddhist

philosophy and tradition with the local resident spiritual ‘friend’, as he likes to be referred

as, Venerable Geshe Nyima Dorje (Geshe-la).

The Christchurch Centre was started due

to requests made to have a highly qualified

authentic Tibetan Buddhist teacher

residing in the city and carrying out weekly

teachings, meditation classes and retreats.

Fulfilling this request Geshe-la now teaches

every Tuesday night and Sunday morning.

• Geshe-la graduated from the largest

Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the

world, Sera Monastic University

in South India. His main teachers

included His Holiness the Dalai Lama,

the late Venerable Khensur Urgyen

Tseten, Venerable Khensur Kangurwa

Lobsang Thupten and Venerable

Khenpo Lobsang Palden.

• Geshe-la arrived in New Zealand in

2008 teaching originally in Dunedin

then through requests moved to

Christchurch 2011, ever since proving

to be lively and entertaining, fresh

and eloquent. Certainly he is very

experienced, having taught younger

monks in the monastery, in his home

region of Tibet and for 3 years in

the traditionally Tibetan-Buddhist

country of Mongolia. Having Geshela

to teach in Christchurch therefore,

is quite a wonderful opportunity for

people to make a deep connection

with age-old teachings.

• At the Centre Geshe-la’s classes focus

on understanding the mind, mind

training and meditation practices.

ADVERTORIAL

Meditation & Mind Training;

• How to generate love, compassion,

generosity and patience. The purpose

is to create a peaceful mind. When

our mind is disturbed it lacks love,

compassion and patience. If we know

how to generate these qualities we

can create a more peaceful mind. We

have accustomed our minds more to

disturbances. We know that as we can

see how easy it is to become angry and

how much effort is needed to remain

patient. Familiarisation is the key.

Also if we apply our understanding

to our own situation; we need to

be loved and if we need this then it

is fair to say others also want to be

loved. If we generate this to others

then we gain the benefits, as we then

receive love and compassion. ‘Others’

mean all beings, if we have this

mental expansion there are enormous

benefits.

• As long as we have strong compassion

we have more patience, from this we

don’t get angry as quickly or as easily

then we have peace of mind.

• The Mind Training constitutes these

kinds of practices, learning and

practicing how to become acquainted

with these qualities of mind, so that

arises spontaneously, or at least are

generated more easily.

beef farm in Little Akaloa

and is hoping to one day

run it himself.

“At home the nearest

squash court was over an

hour away,” he said.

“CBHS was also very

good at squash during the

time I was there with Paul

Coll (current world No 10),

the head boy at Adam’s

House where I boarded

when I first started.”

Both his parents played

squash socially and that

motivated him to give it

a go.

“I wasn’t much of a fan of

football or rugby,” he said.

“I quickly fell in love

with the sport and after a

few low level junior tournaments

and I started to

take it more seriously when

Paul McFadzien offered to

coach me.

0-18.

The competition is a

compilation of national

club results where women’s

golfers play on their

home turf, and their score

is adjusted to account for

their playing handicap

before being compared to

other players, both in the

district and nationally.

Doell’s Waimairi Beach

Golf Club played its

Coronation Medal round

in April and she shot 81,

which was adjusted to a 63

nett.

Now that all other

participating clubs have

played their round, Doell

was crowned the winner,

something she was elated

about.

“To be honest I’d forgotten

about it and when

I saw the email come

through I thought it was

an award the whole club

had won and it wasn’t until

I received another email

I read that it was for me,”

she said.

“It’s an amazing feeling,

like winning lotto.”

Doell, who plays off an

eight handicap when on

form, will be presented

with the medal later this

year at the end of the

season.

Doell, who lives in Harewood

has been playing at

the Waimairi Beach club

for more than 35 years after

she moved to Christchurch

from Cheviot to work

in the city.

She said while she only

gets to play once a week,

she said it was a privilege

to play a good or bad

round.

“I don’t practice often,”

she said. “When I have

squash would have to be

playing against my family

at Squashways, particularly

playing my Dad who beat

me easily,” he said.

“I have never beaten

him as he gave up before I

could.”

A trip England to visit

chance to pull on the silver

“In finishing my B.Ag, I

decided that I would like

to go overseas to England

to visit my mother’s half of

the family and experience

played in England.

“New Zealand Squash

love to do.

“When I shot that round

of 81, I couldn’t wait to get

back out on the course and

play again,” she said.

“Even when it’s not going

well, I’m still grateful

for the chance to have

some exercise and walk in

of all the ladies I used to

play with who can’t play

I’m lucky.”

Doell said while there

were many closer golf

courses to her home, she

would always remain loyal

to Waimairi Beach.

“The club has been good

to me and even through

the earthquakes we still

have a very nice course out

there with great people,”

she said.

“It’s a very technical

course and one that requires

a lot of thought and

Chairwoman of the Bishopdale Business

Association Amanda Nuttall talks about

upcoming changes to the area...

We recently had the BBA annual meeting.

The main news from that is we have

decided to call ourselves Bishopdale Village

and we have a new logo.

There has been a lot of discussion about

what we are and what we are not – with the

carparks and outdoor area being owned by

city council, numerous landlords leasing to

individual businesses and being a mix of

retail and services, we are quite unique.

Our strapline – The heart of your

community – this emphasises that we

are central to the wider community of

from Development Christchurch Ltd.

This is a company owned by the city

council with the mandate to help plan and

implement the redevelopment of specific

areas.

The committee met with them in

October 2017 and since then they have

conducted a shopper survey and talked to

individual landlords and businesses to get

an understanding of the issues.

We hope that this will lead to improved

lighting and security in the village. It would

be great to involve some of our local schools

and community groups in the project too.

The next couple of years will be a very

exciting time for Bishopdale as new

businesses join us in the currently vacant

buildings and our area is rejuvenated.

Ma Baker - your local

Kiwi bakery

They say that if you want to know the

best place to find a great bakery, follow the

locals, and in Edgeware and Bishopdale,

you’ll find both the residents and those

working in the area are regularly heading

straight for Ma Baker.

Their yummy food options in-store can

be described as honest Kiwi tucker and

there’s something for everyone. Everything

is baked daily by their team of bakers, from

the fresh bread displayed in store which

is also used in their sandwiches and rolls,

to their delicious and so-moreish cream

cakes, scones and slices. It’s a perfect spot

to call in for lunch or afternoon tea with

friends, to share a cuppa and a cake with

someone special, or for tradies to fill up

on their large selection of pies, stuffed

sausages, toasties, buns and donuts, and

they can be comfortable knowing they are a

tradie/hi-vis/workboots-friendly bakery. It

is also a popular spot for business people to

hold casual weekly meetings.

When cooking a meal is too much after

a busy day, parents can select something

from their large deli-bars and take home

large-sized bacon and egg or family meat

pies or pizza breads with fruit pies to follow

– their budget-friendly prices mean that

take-out or eating out doesn’t need to be

Small co-ed classes at St Michael’s

Is your child one of 15 or 50? Is their

classroom calm and productive

or a disharmony of noise and

movement? How much of their

teacher’s attention does your child

actually receive?

At St Michael’s, our small co-ed classes

and specialist teachers ensure your child is

an individual, well known by staff and fellow

pupils alike. For at the heart of St Michael’s

are the essential values of Christian faith

and good citizenship: respect, integrity,

faith, hope and love.

St Michael’s is a prep school so your

child is assured of a traditional foundation

in English and Mathematics. This

academic rigour then underpins our wider

curriculums in Science, History, Geography

and Spanish. IT literacy is taught, not

assumed, and computer use is measured.

We like teaching and talking to our pupils!

Cultural and sports’ programmes

develop your child’s foundation further,

as creativity and problem-solving come

in many forms. Specialist art and music

classes are enjoyed weekly; and most pupils

play at least one instrument, whether piano

or flute, bassoon or bongos. There are two

choirs, and drama lessons.

And our extended campus is spectacular:

today, the Art Gallery; tomorrow, the

Gardens; next week…

St Michael’s has been nurturing and

educating children for 167 years, and our

pupils come from city-wide, arriving via

the bus exchange only a block away or

with parents who work in the thriving city

centre.

You and your child are warmly welcome

to discover for yourselves our purposeful,

wholehearted and inclusive prep school.

Our Open Day is Wednesday 15 August or

Cathedral Grammar

The Cathedral Grammar School is an

independent school providing high-quality

education for pre-school, primary school

and intermediate aged girls and boys.

This is a place of ambition alongside

preparation where students learn from the

best right from the start. Every year level

benefits from the expertise of our highcalibre

specialist teachers across multiple

subjects. And small class sizes means a

lot of individual attention so every child’s

strengths are identified and built on and

support provided where and when needed.

Our school structure is unique and

designed to ensure students have the

opportunity to make the most of their

formative school years. We understand

learning happens in different ways at

different ages; our students work in both

co-educational and single-sex learning

environments at times when this best suits

their learning styles. In Pre-School and

the Junior School children learn in a coeducational

environment. Students in Years

4 to 8 attend either our Boys’ or Girls’ School.

Allowing students the best of both worlds,

single sex classes offer the opportunity to

target and deliver the curriculum in the

most effective and interesting style possible,

while social skills are developed by sharing

mixed-environment break times, specialist

classes and activities.

Creativity and culture play a

big role here with four choirs and

hundreds of individual music,

speech and drama lessons every

week. We’re also a proud sporting

school, providing students with

the facilities and encouragement

to try their hand at a range of

sports and recreation activities.

Ultimately, we are committed

to providing a balance of

tradition and rigour, while being

curious and adventurous every

day.

adventure begin

SCHOOL OPTIONS - early & middle years 2019

Middle schooling

makes a difference

Having a curriculum and learning

environment designed specifically for

learners in the “middle years” (Years 7-10) is

essential to ensure high levels of motivation

and engagement in learning during this

crucial stage of schooling.

At Hillmorton High School having a

consistent approach without a transition

to a new school between Year 8 and 9 is

proving to be positive in terms of

accelerating student learning within

the Middle School.

We are currently working with

our architects designing a new

Middle School building with 22

“General Learning Areas”. These

areas are flexible and can operate as

single cell classrooms or be opened

up to allow more open learning

spaces – the best of both worlds.

This building will not disrupt

learning as it is being built on the

current tennis courts.

This environment fits well

with our broad Middle School

curriculum allowing learners to

explore and find both their strengths

and passions.

The advantage of combining

the skills of Year 7 and 8 specialist

teachers with the subject specialists

of a high school gives our Middle

School learners a huge advantage.

Additionally, our “Big Day Out”

events and end of year student

electives allow our young people to learn in

a range of environments often participating

in social action such as planting, working

with the elderly, along with exploring the

city, the Art Gallery and the university.

Our Middle School is ensuring real

educational success and positive future

prospects as students move into the Senior

School for Years 11-13.

Providing

our students

with learning

and personal

growth

opportunities

At St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School,

our mission is that we are “choosing

to be an innovative, catholic learning

community that inspires and empowers

learners to succeed.”

We are committed to inspiring and

empowering students for success,

through the implementation of innovative

instructional practices, leveraging digital

technology, ensuring equity of access for

all.

We offer a range of sporting and cultural,

innovative and creative opportunities.

Teaching and learning experiences are

personalised for our students and value

student voice.

Within our new flexible learning spaces

every child has the opportunity to learn

through authentic contexts, solving real

world problems.

Together we continue to innovate within

a Catholic learning environment where all

learners are inspired to learn, create and

share. We are creating learners who will

not only be successful but will become

people who will positively impact on their

world.

Selwyn House School -

small class sizes and talented

teaching staff

For primary school, every parent wants

to ensure their child is receiving the best

foundation for their academic future.

Selwyn House School has small class sizes

and a talented teaching staff set within a

nurturing environment and an extensive

range of opportunities.

Selwyn House offers the International

Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years

Programme (PYP) and is proud to be a

leading STEAM focused school. We not only

encourage our girls to work in advanced

STEAM fields, we want our girls to lead

them. Our STEAM Hub provides every

student from Year 1 to 8 access to stateof-the-art

equipment. In Mechatronics,

girls learn the foundations of mechanical

and electrical knowledge. Robotics is

introduced as an interdisciplinary, projectbased

learning activity drawing mostly

on mathematics, science and technology.

Learning is also enhanced by additional

opportunities including the 2018 Space

Camp trip where 18 girls will travel to the

United States to attend a week-long Space

Camp.

A supportive all-girl learning

environment encourages girls to take

risks without fear of failure. As the girls

progress they are confident in their

abilities, understanding that perseverance

helps them grow. A school-wide buddy

programme provides each girl with support

and mentoring.

Learning is personalised and each

teacher has the time to foster authentic

and meaningful relationships. Strong

relationships between the class teacher and

family ensure each girl’s learning journey

is nurtured by a partnership of support.

Teachers construct learning activities

to help each girl identify their personal

strengths.

Selwyn House believes these strengths

can be applied to academic tasks

and become more powerful with the

acquisition of skills and knowledge, aiding

intellectual development and academic

achievement. For this reason core learning

in reading, writing and mathematics is

a priority. Specialist teachers in Spanish,

Mechatronics, Art, Science, Physical

Education, Swimming, Performing Arts

and Music work with classroom teachers to

help identify the strengths of every girl.

The environment at Selwyn House

empowers each girl to embrace their future

and develop a love of learning. A Selwyn

House girl will learn to define herself,

accept responsibility, form opinions,

and have compassion for the world. This

combination of achievement, confidence,

and character makes a Selwyn House

education a powerful and transformative

experience.

HISTORY: The Papanui Memorial Hall was built largely because of an initiative

from Leonard Brannan Hart.

Biscuit importer’s

gimmick adverts

were a cracker

Papanui Heritage Group chairman Murray Williams looks at the life

of businessman and Hawthorne St resident Leonard Hart

LEONARD Brannan Hart

was born in Christchurch

in 1874 to Ellen and

Michael Hart. Mr Hart

spent his formative years

in the city and his early

business career was also

based there.

He specialised as an

importer and wholesaler

of Huntley and Palmers

biscuits from

England,

and it is

interesting to

see the way in

which he used

contemporary

events as an

advertising

gimmick,

especially in

exploiting

the imperial

sentiments of

the day.

For

example,

in November 1911, Mr

Hart was advertising

Huntley and Palmers

‘famous polar biscuits’

to coincide with Robert

Falcon Scott’s preparations

for his Antarctic

expedition. Later, Mr Hart

became manager of the

Christchurch branch of

Abels Ltd, a margarine

manufacturing business.

By 1919, he and his

family were living in

Hawthorne St, Papanui,

and he threw himself

into local politics.

His most significant

achievement was to lead

the campaign to lobby

for the construction of a

war memorial in Papanui.

Rather than settling for

an obelisk or statue, Mr

Hart lobbied for a ‘utility

object’, specifically a new

town hall.

As chairman of the

memorial

committee,

he argued

successfully

that the

bulk of

the money

should be

provided

by raising

a council

loan,

although

the

committee

also raised

funds

directly by organising a

very successful Queen

Carnival. The new

memorial hall with library

facilities on the corner of

Horner St and Papanui Rd

was finally opened in 1923.

However, Mr Hart’s

other foray into local

politics was less successful.

Since 1910, Papanui had

been administered by

the Waimairi County

Council but there was

some feeling that the area

would do better as a part

of Christchurch city.

Mr Hart disagreed –

he was convinced that

this would result in a

disproportionate increase

in rates for Papanui

property owners.

The fact that he had a

financial interest in a large

tract of then undeveloped

land off Hawthorne St

may have been at least

a partial motivation for

his campaign, which was

fought at public meetings

and through lengthy

letters to The Press.

However, in 1922,

ratepayers in the most

urbanised section of

Papanui voted to secede

from Waimairi in favour

of absorption into the

growing city. Thus in 1923

– the year that marked

his triumph in driving

the successful campaign

for the memorial hall –

the change in the local

territorial boundary

was officially gazetted.

Both the memorial hall

and Mr Hart’s property

in Hawthorne St had

officially become part of

Christchurch. Later Mr

Hart moved to the Bay

of Plenty and died in

Tauranga in 1960.

Grape seeds

shown to have

remarkable

health benefits!

According to researchers grape seeds

may hold the potential to treat and prevent

many devastating disorders. The seeds

have been found to contain many powerful

antioxidant that have been shown to

support the natural healing process and

even slow the aging process.

Grape Seed Extract (GSE) has been shown

to reduce inflammation, pain, increase

cell energy, protect protein structures and

increase collagen production. The powerful

antioxidants can tone and strengthen

the blood vessels, improve blood flow,

making it valuable for circulatory disorders

of all kinds, including varicose veins,

haemorrhoids, hardening of the arteries

and impaired blood flow to the brain. It

is excellent for most skin conditions with

many noticing the skin becomes smoother.

GSE offers a natural alternative for many

people with hypertension. (High Blood

on organs and can lead to atherosclerosis

(hardening of the arteries) and increased

risk of heart disease and strokes.

Recent studies on people with elevated

B/P found GSE to significantly lower B/P

but with no effect on people with normal

B/P. Animal studies have shown GSE to

improve heart function, reduce damage

caused by heart attacks and prevent arterial

plaque.

A growing number of studies show that

GSE has powerful anticancer properties,

can help balance blood sugar, improve

arthritis and protect brain cells. It may prove

vital in the treatment of brain disorders like

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Numerous studies on GSE show it can

help support our good health and prevent

many degenerative diseases. Further

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and

as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

Scientists at Rush University Medical

Center found those most deficient

in vitamin B12 to have the smallest

brain mass and the lowest scores on

tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration and brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains and score

higher on cognitive tests than those with

lower levels. Yet another recent landmark

study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain

shrinkage and declining cognitive function.

B12 is essential for energy production, cell

health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles,

nerve health and repair, and prevention

of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular

risk factor that is known to cause damage

and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease

risk of vision

loss in a study

of participants

aged 40+ who

supplemented with

B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking brain due to a lack of vitamin B12.

Supplementation of methylcobalamin B12 has been shown to reduce the rate of brain

shrinkage & support memory & brain function. B12 is also known to protect against

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that can also damage the hearing,

eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential for energy, cell health & nerve function.

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and

thru bypassing the digestive tract have

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in

the body.

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,

most homes include at least one heat pump,

if not a whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more

convenient than a log burner as you just need

to press a button. But how do you decide what

is best? Choosing the right sized heat pump is

key to ensuring optimum comfort levels. Every

situation varies and it is therefore important

to get professional advice from heat pump

experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it

is important to select the correct size for your

requirements that will handle the job but not

be unnecessarily overpowered.

Secondly, the location of your heat pump

is also extremely important. The cheapest

installation is a back to back where the outdoor

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor

unit however this is not necessarily always

the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

NOR’WEST NEWS

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands vary

in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems

and price, so it depends on your application as

to which will be most suitable. Major brands

such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin,

Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands

backed up by good technical after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but also

validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

Heating is a major investment in your home

and it is vital to get the right advice.

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,

installation and servicing of all major brands

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as

to which system will suit your application

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of

dampness

in your house

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm and

healthy for their families throughout winter.

Rising damp is an issue that affects many of

our older properties which suffer from poor, or

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,

many people have relocated to homes

that suffer from rising damp which can be

associated with health problems. Independent

tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can

rise from the ground and enter a house every

day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation

and musty smells. Moulds can produce

various allergic reactions and the

frail, elderly and very young are

especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd is a locally owned and

operated firm. The team

understands the problems

caused by rising damp and are

there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump

a lightweight, flowable foam

concrete under your timber

floored home. Specially adapted

for our New Zealand conditions and

applications it provides a layer of protection

against rising moisture. An unexpected

benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam

Concrete have noticed recently, is that many

owners of properties which had underfloor

foam concrete installed, reported that it also

provided protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or

Acupuncture

without needles

A graduate of Beijing Medical College,

Dr Lan established an acupuncture clinic

in Christchurch in 1993. As she continued

her research and medical practice, she

discovered a reflexology network on the

human body, an exciting new discovery

that became the foundation of her new

treatment – acupuncture without needles.

Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt

instrument to stimulate the reflexology

points on the face or other parts of the

body. When the point is stimulated by

pressure, a message is sent to the repair

centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan

explains, the treatment increases energy,

which boosts the body’s healing system.

With her powerful treatment, results are

produced very quickly – even instantly.

It brings fast results because it is a very

precise treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses

it to treat people of all ages with many

different types of pain in all parts of the

body, including arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury, and there are

no side-effects. Depression and

anxiety, often the result of ongoing

low energy, can also be overcome

with Dr Lan’s treatment.

Search YouTube for Dr Lan

reflexology to see lots of instant

results videos. Dr Lan has published

a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology

Network, which introduces the

treatment and explains how

it works. Her website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz,

includes treatment videos, where

people who have had the treatment

speak about the fast relief it has

r Lan’s Reflexology

brought them. Phone 323 4168 or

027 231 8388.

ADveRToRIAL

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury,

and other physical and mental health issues, Chinese

health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of

treatment that brings fast and often immediate results.

“Living Fully in Dying

and Death?”

Dying and especially death have become

increasingly taboo subjects in our modern

western society. This course will involve reflective

consideration of the recent important literature

of how to live life to the full when facing the last

of life’s major stages of dying and death. This is

at a time when more people are living longer and

are becoming more removed from the reality of

what it means to be mortal. Attention will also

be drawn to recent research on palliative care and

how it informs people to face approaching death

not with trepidation but openness, clarity and

understanding. This is an information sharing,

reflective course and is not therapeutic in format.

It will be a six-week course of 2 hour sessions; held

on Thursday afternoons, 2 – 4 pm, commencing

on 23rd August. The course will be facilitated by

Rodney Routledge and others and be interactive

in format.

THAT’S right folks! DND Showband returns

to the Hornby Club this Saturday with the

original line up.

“We’ve had a lot of fun putting this show

together, ”said Jo-Anne Davern, performer

and manager of the band. “It’s been a good

couple of years since this line up last

performed together and I’m amazed at how

simply we all slotted back in place. It’s like

we were never apart.”

Joining Jo on stage will be regular

members Ben Harvey (guitar, vocals); Grant

McPhie (bass, keys); and Mark Newburn

(drums, vocals), along with showband

chanteuses Michele Webb, Gina Gilbreath,

and Mel Lawson.

Christchurch based DnD Showband has

been delighting audiences across the

country with their multi-tribute theme

shows for an incredible ten years. In

rehearsal mode for Saturday’s show, the 7

piece troupe has been busy fine tuning show

content, sorting costumes and tightening up

moves.

“We’ve put together a great play list

guaranteed to get everyone up dancing.

We’re opening with a set of 50s/60s tunes,

followed by our Moulin Rouge theme set

that brims with disco dance anthems of the

70s/80s, and concluding with our tribute to

ABBA,” said Jo. “And for those who prefer to

listen and watch, our professional tech’s

Peter Standring and Peter ‘Pedro’ Buchan-Ng

will be out front running our audio and

light systems to ensure it sounds and looks

wonderful.”
