Petition

against

Cranford St

changes

gets 2000

signatures

• By Ashleigh Monk

MORE THAN 2000 signatures

have been collected in a bid to

stop proposed changes in and

around Cranford St.

Warrington St residents Mark

Wilson and Jason Harvey spoke

to local residents and gathered

signatures as they felt the city

council and Papanui-Innes

Community Board weren’t

listening to their pleas.

The changes, which would

coincide with the Northern

Corridor opening, included

creating a clearway on Cranford

St, intersection upgrades

to Warrington, Forfar and

Barbadoes Sts, and the threelaning

of Forfar, Madras and

Barbadoes Sts.

“The proposal overall is just

crazy, but one of the overriding

concerns is the fact that the

council doesn’t listen,” Mr Wilson

said. “It’s been forced on residents

in the area. It’s basically just to

help people from other areas

come in and drive through our

community and do nothing for

our community at all . . . it makes

your blood boil a little bit.”

I TAKE my hat off to Mike Davidson and

Brad Mooar for stepping into the ring for

charity (see page 7).

Watching boxing from the comfort of

the couch or stadium seat is completely

different to being amongst the real thing.

The boxing gloves get heavy and when the hands drop the

punches get through. And they hurt.

Mooar will be used to the rough and tumble from his rugby

playing days and he’s a bit bigger than Davidson, who says he’s

never been in a scrap.

But what did Mark Twain once say? “It’s not the size of the

dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”

They’ll find out if they’ve got it on fight night.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Fendalton heavy truck ban unlikely

FENDALTON residents appear

to have failed in their bid to

ban heavy vehicles from using a

controversial intersection.

Independent consultants

Abley were commissioned

to review the intersection

of Glandovey and Idris Rds

and reported back to the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board.

The report said traffic wasn’t

heavy enough to warrant a ban.

A city council-commissioned

traffic modelling forecast came

to the same conclusion.

Glandovey, Idris and

Straven Residents’ Association

spokesman James Wilding said

in spite of the results of the

reports indicating heavy vehicles

would not be banned, the group

was still of the view that trucks

weighing up to 50-tonne which

pass through the intersection

should use larger arterial routes.

“Christchurch and other cities

have many streets which restrict

these very heavy vehicles by sign

or road treatment.”

He said he believed the issue

was a “double-standard”.

“The council seeks 30km/h for

parts of the CBD, most recently

St Asaph St, in the interests of

safety, health and amenity, but is

unconcerned by its data which

now shows speeding in the

suburbs around homes where

children live.”

Mr Wilding also said he

believed some important factors

had been left out of the report.

He said the residents’

association raised the issue of

high accident rates on Straven

Rd and Clarence St, but those

streets were not included in the

report.

“[We] do not know why when

we raised the issue of traffic and

safety on roads where there are

high accident rates, including

Straven Rd and Clarence St,

they have not been reported

on, nor as another example

the narrowness of roads, for

SET BACK:

Reports show

Board chairman Sam

MacDonald declined to

comment on the matter at

this stage, saying he would

like to have a conversation

will all involved parties before

the board would make a

decision.

In Brief

QE II SCHOOLS MEETING

The Ministry of Education,

Papanui-Innes Community

Board and Coastal-Burwood

Community Board met on

Wednesday to have a “full and

frank discussion” about feedback

from local residents on the zoning

plans for the Avonside Girls

and Shirley Boys’ High School

combined campus at QE II Park.

Papanui-Innes Community Board

chairwoman Ali Jones said the

meeting went well, but she could

not comment further. “[The

Ministry of Education] took the

feedback on board and we are

looking forward to continuing

our conversation with them,”

she said.

The Bishopdale Community

Trust wants the public to make

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Huntly’S exciting

day out…

Desexing is classified as a routine, fairly fast

procedure by most veterinarians but for the

owner and their pet it is a big deal. It is usually

the first time the client has had to leave their

little baby in our trusted hands for a whole

day bearing in mind its going to have an

anaesthetic which if not explained properly

can be very scary for the client. Many clients

are reluctant to part with their pet so its our

job to reassure clients, their special pet will be

ready and waiting for them at the end of the

day, job done.

At McMaster & Heap we

consider routine surgery

to be a big deal and

we are very careful to

explain the whole days

procedure and follow up

care very carefully to our

clients. We don’t want

our patients scared off

by the days’ events so

we are very gentle with

them. Lets face it, they

may be patients of ours

for the next 20 years so

we need to start off on

the right paw!!

Often the puppies have

visited the clinic before

for vaccinations and

puppy playschool so

have “good feelings”

about the practice.

Running around with

other puppies playing

chase, getting hugs from

us all and liver treats

helps portray our clinic

as a fun place. With the

kittens we place them

in a quiet space and

have feliway diffusers

running which naturally

calm them down. If they

are particularly stressed

out they are often given

their sedative early and

cuddled by our hospital

nurse.

Recently our nurse

Jaimee had her puppy

neutered.

Huntly has been here

before so bounded

through the doors.

We give our clients

the options of pre

anaesthetic blood testing

and intravenous fluids. The blood testing

can help us detect early subclinical disease

like diabetes, renal or liver disease. The fluids

help maintain a healthy blood pressure, help

remove the anaesthetic from the body, and

provide an intravenous route should we

require it.

On arrival they are thoroughly checked over

( temperature, heart rate, breathing rate) by

Michele anaesthetising Huntly.

a theatre nurse, bloods taken if required and

a catheter placed for an IV line. 30 minutes

before their operation they are sedated. Once

anaesthetized they are connected to an

anaesthetic monitoring device so the nurse

can easily and accurately track how things

are going.

A castration procedure takes about 30

minutes from start to finish. Basically both

testicles are removed, the scrotal sac is left

and there will be a small line of stitches that

will require removal in 10-14

days.

We provide 2 free check ups

if required. WE often send

puppies home with a large

lampshade (Elizabethan

collar) to prevent them

ripping at their stitches. We

do recommend leash exercise

only until the sutures are

removed.

Needless to say Huntly was

the “star” patient, going to

sleep when told and waking

up quietly and quickly. Some

of our boisterous patients can

be quite vocal once coming

around from their anaesthetic.

Lola finds it quite amusing

and is often seen checking up

on them.

Nearly all of the puppies we

see through McMaster & Heap

will be desexed as young

dogs. We do recommend

this procedure unless the

client is keen on breeding/

showing. Many serious health

concerns are eliminated

by desexing early on, for

example mammary and

testicular cancers, pyometras

and prostate disease. Plus it

stops unwanted pregnancies,

roaming dogs and it can

lessen aggressive behavior

before bad habits have

formed.

Early aggression in puppies

though requires the help of a

trained animal behaviouralist

very early on and possibly

medications from your vet.

This sort of issue will not

simply just right itself. Your

puppies personality though is

not affected by the operation.

Definitely best to have the

discussion with your vet as we all have

varying opinions on “the best time”. I give my

clients the option of waiting until their male

dog is cocking their leg before castration –

this usually occurs at 8-10 months of age.

For any more information and advice on why

or when to desex, please give anyone of us a

quick call at the clinic. We’d be happy to help.

Feedback changes Main North Rd plan

PUBLIC OUTCRY has seen

plans for upgrades on Main

North Rd change.

Late last year the city

council asked the public to

give feedback on a package of

proposed changes aimed at

giving buses priority on Main

North Rd and improving traffic

flows.

Among the changes proposed

were a new full-time bus lane

running north from Harewood

Rd to Grassmere St and new bus

priority measures at the Main

North and Sawyers Arms Rds

intersection.

The proposed changes

drew 197 submissions from the

public.

Fifty-six of those submissions

supported the bus priority

proposal, while another 58

supported it but raised some

concerns.

Seventy-three submissions

did not support the bus priority

measures.

The loss of on-street parking

spaces to allow for bus priority

was one of the main concerns

raised by submitters.

Submitters also raised

concerns about how the

proposed changes would affect

access to Grassmere St.

“The project team has

considered all the feedback and

is recommending some changes

to the original proposal,” city

council transport planning and

delivery manager Lynette Ellis

said

“The amended proposals will

be presented to the Papanui-

Innes Community Board at their

next meeting on 24 August,’’ she

said.

If the proposed changes are

approved by the board and the

city council, construction is

expected to start towards the

middle of next year.

THE CONSTRUCTION of two

new lanes over the Waimakariri

Bridge is set to begin by the end

of the month.

An additional north-bound

lane will help merging traffic

from Main North Rd, the

Western Belfast Bypass and the

Northern Corridor.

The extra south-bound lane

will help ease traffic and also be

used as a high occupancy vehicle

lane during morning peak times.

Work is set to be complete by

the end of next year.

The third lane will be

added on the inside of both the

north-bound and south-bound

bridges.

The new 25m steel bridge spans

will be placed on strengthened

head stocks using a crane.

A separate clip on cycleway will

be constructed on the outside of

the south-bound bridge.

Provision was made for extra

lanes when the bridge was built

in the 1970s. However, standards

have changed since so further

strengthening is needed to take

the additional weight and width.

During construction one lane

on either bridge will be regularly

Bus stop moves dumped

• By Ashleigh Monk

OPPOSITION FROM Mairehau

business owners over the

proposed relocation of bus stops

has prompted the city council to

withdraw its plan.

Thirty written submissions

were received by the city council

on the plan to move bus stops

outside a row of shops on Innes

Rd as a result of route changes to

the Orbiter and No 44 buses.

Out of the 30 submissions, 77

per cent opposed the changes

and 10 were in support.

City council passenger transport

engineer Peter Rodgers said

the plan to relocate the bus stops

to 395 and 492 Innes Rd would

not be presented to the Papanui-

Innes Community Board.

“It is clear that the majority of

the community do not support

the proposal.”

“However, council staff will

further investigate the possibility

of bus stops, further west on each

side of Innes Rd, to accommodate

easier passenger crossings

and connecting between the

proposed 44 and Orbiter routes,

after the proposed 44 route

changes come into effect,” he said

in an email to submitters.

Flower Bazaar owners Des

Banks and Ian Harvey were

“elated” that the proposal had

been withdrawn.

Mr Harvey said he was pleased

the city council listened to protests

from the shop owners.

“We feel like winners,” he said.

“It wasn’t a competition or

anything, but just a win for small

businesses for a change . . . it was

a real positive in the end, it just

shows you how many people love

the little shops.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

City councillor versus a Crusader

• By Ashleigh Monk

FOR THE next few weeks, city

councillor Mike Davidson will

don boxing gloves as he prepares

for the fight of his life.

Davidson has put his hand

up for the OneStaff Fight for

Christchurch. His opponent?

Crusaders assistant coach Brad

Mooar.

“I don’t think I’m going to be

the crowd favourite, but I guess

it’s about time the Crusaders had

a loss,” Davidson said.

With no boxing experience to

speak of, Davidson will square

up against Mooar in an effort to

raise money for his chosen charity

Cure Kids.

“It’s called Fight for Christchurch,

but for me, it’s fighting for

the kids. That’s the real motivator

for me.”

He said he was trying not to

think too much about the big

fight on November 3, focusing

instead on honing his skills.

“I’m not a boxer so I don’t

know what it’s like to take a

punch, but I guess I’ll find out

very shortly,” he said.

Davidson recently met with

Mooar so each could size up their

opponent.

“I met him the other week and

he’s a lot taller than me.”

“I’m going to give it my all, and

hopefully if there’s anyone with

their butt on the canvas it’s going

to be him, not me.”

Mooar like Davidson doesn’t

have any boxing experience and

thought the playing field would

be level. “It seems like we’re

pretty evenly matched. He’s a fit

guy, he’s going to have a better

fitness base than me I think,” he

Mooar chose Conductive Education

Canterbury as his charity

to support, and had a chance to

visit the children at the centre

last week.

“There are people with some

massive challenges in there, and

the teachers and teacher aides

are leading a superb schooling

system and growth environment

for those children and their

families.”

“It feels right to me to be supporting

a charity that is helping

kids find their spark.”

Community garden

sprouts up in Burnside

• By Ashleigh Monk

BURNSIDERS WILL be able to lounge

around and enjoy the sun in their new

community garden.

The Monarch Community Garden

on Kendal Ave sprang to life through

the combined efforts of Housing New

Zealand, the Bishopdale Menzshed, Clean

Up Canterbury and several working bees

attended by local residents and school

children.

The land for the garden was donated

by St Timothy’s Anglican Church in

Burnside.

Burnside resident Jacqui Stringfellow

said the idea for a garden came after it was

brought up at a Housing New Zealand

meeting.

“I think originally the residents thought

WORKING BEE:

Bishopdale

Menzshed

members Dave

Crawford and

Lance Saunders

put together a

planter box in

the Monarch

Community

Garden.

‘I love this idea but will it really happen?’

And I’m a very proactive person, so if you

want it to happen, it’ll happen.”

She said the support from local groups

and organisations had been “amazing”.

“All the working bees to get it all planted

and sorted have been just amazing.”

“I went to drop some flyers around the

area and people were like ‘oh my gosh, it

really did happen’. So it’s really exciting

for the community and people that have

gotten involved.”

Bishopdale Menzshed member Richard

Rendle said the group built and positioned

the planter boxes, put together some

old pallets to make compost bins and

assembled a garden shed.

“The community benefits and Menzshed

members feel they are doing something

useful in their retirement.”

Potholed car park may be sealed

CERTIFICATES: Selwyn House School students and their

coach with Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner.

Cycleway project earns high

praise for Sewlyn House girls

AN INNOVATIVE school

project to promote the city’s

cycleway network has won

international honours and high

praise from Deputy Mayor

Andrew Turner.

The achievements of nine

Selwyn House School students

were acknowledged by the city

council at a presentation of

special certificates.

Cleo McLeod, Sophie

Hodgson, Lucy Maynard, Miya

Hartstonge, Reed McHugh,

Alice Hunter, Bonnie Smith,

Phoebe Donald and Kate

Gourley – along with their

teacher and coach Adele Staples

– shared their idea and Future

Problem Solving adventure with

councillors.

The students used a lasercutter

and 3D printer to create

bike cut-outs that could be

decorated and hidden in places

along the new cycle routes for

cyclists to discover, encouraging

families and youngsters to grab

their bikes and hunt for the new

shapes.

They plan to launch their

#LetsBikeChristchurch

project in October. Cr Turner

congratulated the students for

scooping third spot with their

#LetsBikeChristchurch initiative

at the Future Problem Solving

international conference in

La Crosse, Wisconsin, United

States.

“For a group of young people

to come up with this wonderful

idea to attract people to our

cycleway network and then

present the idea in a highlycompetitive

environment is a

truly impressive achievement,”

he said.

PART OF the potholed car park

in New Brighton’s Hawke St may

A temporary fix was made this

month when the owner of the

Some of the

property owners

have also now

got quotes on the

cost of repairing the potholes,

he said. The estimated cost is

$50,000 for the whole car park to

be fixed.

The plan is to undertake

the work when the weather

improves, he said. The rest of the

car park remains potholed as a

result of having multiple private

owners and the cost of repairs.

He said some of the properties

do not have tenants, meaning

there is no financial benefit for

the owners to fix the potholes.

Concerns have been raised

about the state of the car park

he would like Development

Wallace wins boot full of trophies

AFTER THE season St Andrew’s

cabinet in the

off-season.

The 18-year-old

won both the Toyo

Tires Mazda Pro7

Racing South Island

and New Zealand

championships.

The South Island

championship is held

over seven weekends at

four different circuits

in the South Island.

Wallace won trophies

and got on the podium in every

round.

He also won trophies for fastest

lap of the year at three of the four

circuits – Ruapuna Speedway,

Highlands Motorsport Park

in Central Otago, and Levels

Sam Wallace

Raceway in Timaru. Wallace has

achieved this in only his second

season of racing and he plans to

compete again next season in

the same category to defend his

tittles. He will then trial

for a Toyota 86 scholarship

next year.

“My dad (Paul) and

I were big fans of it,”

he said. “We’d watch

formula one and the V8s

together, but I hadn’t

raced anything until two

years ago.”

Wallace’s grandfather

David raced Minis in

the 1970s and often did

quarter-mile races in a

Boss 302 Mustang and a

Datsun 240Z.

“For me, I have a belief that if

CHRISTCHURCH United FC Academy

has had an unprecedented run of success

with their under-13, under-14 and

under-15 teams all claiming Mainland

Football championships in premier

divisions.

The success of the academy’s teams

has been an affirmation of the player

development work. The professional

coaches at Christchurch United

have made this a priority over the

past six seasons at the state-of-theart

Christchurch Football Centre in

Yaldhurst.

Academy director Colin Williamson

said the investment in quality coaching is

really starting to pay off. This investment

was initially made through the

Christchurch Football Academy and then

the Christchurch United Football Club

after the two merged in 2016.

“Our club president Slava Meyn started

the academy programme back in 2014 to

develop the best possible players for New

Zealand Football. And their individual

and team success at the local level is a

sign that we are on the right track,” said

Williamson.

The Dutch coach arrived at the start

of the current season after a long career

as an academy coach with professional

clubs like PSV Eindhoven in the

Netherlands. He has further improved the

structures and planning of development

programmes for Christchurch United’s

players and coaches.

Williamson works closely with

Christchurch United first team coach

Fernando Lambert, and both coaches also

look after one of the academy teams.

Williamson said the basis of each team’s

success has been the technical and tactical

development of players.

The under-13 and under-10 teams

recently won the Christchurch

International Cup and the success has not

gone unnoticed.

“We are being approached for several

tournaments in New Zealand and

abroad, so it will be good for our teams to

challenge themselves against other clubs

as well,” Williamson said.

SPORTS

RISING STARS The Christchurch United Academy under-13 team won both the

Mainland Football Premier League and the Christchurch International Cup this

year.

United FC Academy

SKILLS: Riley Caswell has received

glowing reviews.

The under-13 side will play in a highcalibre

Auckland tournament next

month.

Two older Christchurch United

players have already been exposed to

overseas experience, with 17-year-old

Riley Caswell and Hamish Cooper

spending time with Australian club

Sydney FC.

Caswell received glowing reviews after

his week with the club’s first team, while

Cooper is currently training with the

Sydney FC Academy.

Williamson is pleased Christchurch

United can offer players opportunities

that may not have been available a few

years ago.

“And then it is up to the players to take

those opportunities. Our academy can

prepare the players the best we can, but

it will be fascinating to see how many

of these youngsters will be able to push

on and represent Canterbury and New

Zealand in the future.”

FOCUS ON HEALTH

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 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.

Health Advisers at Marshall’s

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 Pressure) Higher B/P puts more

stress 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 detailed information is available

Ear Health Canterbury has been

providing a microscopic ear cleaning

service in Canterbury for 19 years

From small beginnings in 1999

where monthly clinics were held in the

Christchurch Hearing Association in

Beveridge Street the service expanded

rapidly as clients discovered and appreciated

the benefits of micro suction technology.

Twelve months later clinics had increased

to 5 days a week and with the help of more

trained Registered nurses and Reception

staff clinics opened in Rangiora, Ashburton

Timaru Temuka and Waimate.

In 2004 the clinic moved with the

Hearing Association to larger premises at

275 Riccarton Road. They remain there

today offering a Monday to Saturday service

and a popular and busy mobile service to

Retirement Villages, Rest Home residents

and to people with mobility difficulties in

their private homes.

While a weekly clinic is still held in

Ashburton, the South Canterbury clinics

are now under new Management.

Many conditions affecting the outer

ear canal can be treated and monitored at

Ear Health including infections, relieving

impacted wax and removal of foreign

bodies. Preventative education is also

offered and for those with hearing aids due

to sensorineural hearing loss Ear Health has

accredited ACC and War Pension funding

This safe, accessible, affordable ear care is

provided to all age groups in a client focused

environment with the nurses working

collaboratively with General Practitioners,

Audiologists, Hearing Therapists and

Secondary Care Consultants.

Maintaining good ear hygiene has

many benefits. It can improve hearing and

balance, reduce the symptoms of tinnitus,

improve the effectiveness of hearing

aids and reduce the incidence of aural

infections. Most importantly, this then

enhances quality of life.

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of

dampness

in your house

The

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.
