THAT WOULD have been one big

moment so to speak for St Andrew’s

basketballers Mac Stodart and Charlotte

Whittaker and Middleton Grange’s Sofia

Kennedy (see page 13).

The promising youngsters met Steven

Adams, a $36 million a year NBA man, at a training camp in

Palmerston North. That’s the kind of money the big stars of the

NBA earn.

Adams ran the camp for 40 hand-picked teenage players

from around New Zealand. For Stodart, Whittaker and

Kennedy, to have made it speaks volumes for their potential.

To have Adams running it I hope has energised their

aspirations to go as far as they can in the sport.

And if you look at the photo, Stodart isn’t too far behind

Adams in the height stakes.

Community split over Northwood trees

Pensioner

wants them

chopped

• By Ashleigh Monk

SEVERAL TIMES a year,

Northwood pensioner Bob

Davison has to climb a ladder to

clear his gutters of debris from

the giant gum trees across the

road.

Mr Davison, 74, has lived in

his Saracen Ave home since

2006. He wants six gum trees

across the road removed as they

block his afternoon sun and

drop, leaves, bark and nuts.

However, residents are split

over the issue.

“They’re beautiful trees in the

wrong place,” he said.

“My concerns are debris,

shading, and then the safety

aspects because we’ve had

sticks that have been an inch in

diameter hit our window in the

middle of the night with a strong

southerly.”

He said the Northwood

Residents’ Association has been

working with the city council

to alleviate the problem, but it

wasn’t enough.

SHADY ISSUE: Bob Davison wants six gum trees in

Northwood to be cut down because of the debris they drop

onto his property and gutters (inset).

“[The city council] is getting

Treetech to come in and strip

the bark and they are better than

they were, but we’ve still got

shading and the problem with

the gutters.”

“One lady said to me ‘I look at

them every morning’ and I said

‘well, look, if we get them taken

down I’ll get a painting put on

your window’.”

“It’s not in their backyards so

why would they care?”

Another resident, who didn’t

want to be named, was shocked

by the calls to have the trees

removed.

“Those beautiful trees have

been there for a very long time

– long before the Northwood

subdivision was ever designed.”

The resident said cutting the

trees down would be a “drastic”

move.

“I would like to think

commonsense will prevail

and a less drastic resolution

can be found as I believe this is

not a decision to be made

by only a small number of

residents on behalf of all of

Northwood.”

Northwood Residents’

Association chairman Clive

Smith said the community is

“divided” over the issue.

“There’s a lot of people that

think these trees are absolutely

part of the landscape. But they

don’t live in the shadow of them,

and they don’t have to put up

with the things that Bob and his

neighbours put up with.”

He said he felt a middle

ground could be reached.

“We went to the council and

said ‘you have got to do better

for these residents’, and what

we expect is an improvement of

the maintenance programme

around these trees.”

School needs help to keep pool open

• By Ashleigh Monk

FOR ABOUT 40 years, the

Waimairi School pool has been a

“social hub” for the community.

But with maintenance costs of

$10,000 a year, the school needs

a helping hand to keep the pool

running.

Principal Mike Anderson said

the PTA was making efforts to

raise money for the pool.

“Every year we do fundraise,

but this year because the costs

have been increasing, we are

setting up a separate pool effort.

Usually the PTA support it from

their general fundraising,” he

said.

“It’s really important, and we’re

very fortunate to have a school

• By Ashleigh Monk

THERE IS no definitive answer

as to how Merevale became

Merivale – but history buff Tim

Baker thinks he might have the

answer.

A year or two

ago, Mr Baker

was gifted a

photo album

book full of

images from

the suburb,

three of which

Tim Baker

are pictures of

a homestead

labelled ‘Merivale’.

The pictures were taken by

United Kingdom photographer

Nelson King Cherrill between

1876 and 1881.

But the funny thing was that

Merivale was still known as

Merevale up until the 1890s.

“Recently I thought I would

research to see if [the house] still

remains and if Merivale got its

name from this property, as so

many of our suburb names have

done so in Christchurch and

elsewhere,” he said.

“I have Google-searched and

asked about it but have hit a

pool. We are totally committed to

keeping it going.”

The PTA hosted a gathering

on Friday to encourage local

businesses to become sponsors in

exchange for putting up signage

around the pool.

He said by having the pool on

site, the school was able to give

children essential water safety

skills.

“We want all of our kids to

have basic aquatic skills by the

time they leave our school.”

“Our PTA also fund a professional

swimming tutor to work

with the children who need extra

assistance who aren’t picking it

up from the classes that teachers

run . . . and that’s free of charge

to our families. Learning aquatic

brick wall. City library staff have

researched and are baffled too.”

skills is part of our curriculum

and our curriculum should be

free, not something parents have

to stump up extra for.”

And the pool was not only an

asset for the school, but also for

the wider community.

“The pool is used by about 100

families every year out of hours,

so it’s a real social hub. It’s a real

meeting point for the community,”

Mr Anderson said.

The pool was also at the centre

of community barbecues, school

leavers’ parties and sports events.

Unravelling the mystery of Merivale’s name

MAKING A SPLASH: The Waimairi School PTA needs help

raising the money to keep the school pool running.

He said he didn’t think the

homestead would still be standing,

but he hoped someone might

be able to shed light on it.

MYSTERY: This photograph

of a homestead labelled

Merivale was taken between

1876 and 1881 – years before

the suburb’s name Merevale

was changed to Merivale.

“I don’t think it’s still there,

otherwise we’d know about it

. . . my theory is that it burnt

down in a fire.”

Historical research showed

there were a few theories as to

how Merivale got its name, but

none had been proven.

One theory was that a woman

named Charlotte Jackson bought

100 acres (40ha) in the area and

named it ‘Merevale’ after her

brother-in-law, Thomas Jackson,

who was the vicar of Merevale, a

town in England.

But Mr Baker thought perhaps

the name had come as the result

of a typo.

“Maybe the photographer

made a mistake with the ‘i’ and

that’s just how it stayed.”

CONGRATULATIONS: Frank Frizelle (right) after receiving his honorary

fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Dublin professor Paul

Burke researched and presented a citation on Prof Frizelle, something all award

recipients received.

St Albans surgeon receives

international recognition

• By Sophie Cornish

A ST ALBANS-based

bowel cancer surgeon and

researcher has received

international recognition

from one of the world’s

largest surgical colleges in

Ireland.

Last month, Frank

Frizelle was awarded one

of the highest honours,

an honourary fellowship

from the Royal College of

Surgeons in Ireland.

It recognises his global

leadership in surgery and

comes on the back of

ground-breaking research

from Prof Frizelle and

his Otago University and

Canterbury District Health

Board research teams, who

recently identified a toxic

bug they believe may cause

bowel cancer.

The team found a toxic

form of a bacteria called

enterotoxic bacteroides

fragilis in the gut of almost

80 per cent of people with

a pre-cancerous lesion – a

precursor to the disease,

which is one of the leading

causes of cancer death in

New Zealand, said Prof

Frizelle.

It could lead to a lifesaving

vaccine or early detection

test for the disease.

Prof Frizelle said he was

“delighted and privileged”

to be recognised with the

award which came “out of

the blue.”

“It’s quite a big deal. The

Irish college doesn’t offer

this to many people so it’s

quite special,” he said.

It was especially exciting

for his mother, Nanci,

who has Irish heritage. She

was too frail to travel but

was able to watch her son

receive the award through a

live-stream video.

Prof Frizelle said bowel

cancer has gone under

the rader for a long time

because people are often

embarrassed to talk about it.

His team were also the

first to show differences in

the gut microbiome linked

to different types of bowel

cancer.

The discovery could

mean in future clinicians

can give patients the

treatments, surgery or

medications shown to work

best for particular types of

cancer.

Prof Frizelle is a surgeon

at Christchurch Colorectal

in St Albans, editor in

chief of The New Zealand

Medical Journal and head

of university department

of surgery at Otago University.

FAILED: Residents’ bid to have heavy vehicles banned from the Glandovey and

Idris Rds intersection in Fendalton has been put on the back-burner.

Board puts brakes on

heavy truck ban for now

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE DOOR is still open

for Fendalton residents’ bid

to ban heavy vehicles from

the Glandovey and Idris

Rds intersection – but the

issue has been put

to bed for now.

The Fendalton-

Waimairi-

Harewood

Community Board

has taken the issue

off its agenda.

Chairman Sam

MacDonald said

it would consider

looking at the issue

again in the future, but the

reports indicated a ban was

not “necessary”.

The board received

reports on the intersection

at a meeting last week and

decided to drop the issue

from its agenda.

• By Ashleigh Monk

WHEN Brenda and

David Anderson built

their Fendalton home two

years ago in preparation

for retirement, they were

“delighted” with their park

views.

But their delight was

short-lived.

For the past six months,

the couple have been battling

the city council over

a 4.5m tall suction tank,

which is to be installed

in Jeffreys Park, over the

fence from their Waiwetu

St property.

“It was dreadful,” Mrs

Anderson said.

Sam

MacDonald

“Those reports said that,

by and large, those heavy

vehicle restrictions aren’t

exactly necessary in that

patch relative to the rest of

the city,” he said.

“I’m certainly not closing

the door on it . . .

but my view at the

moment is that, given

we have had those

reports, it has gone

through the process.”

But Idris and

Straven Residents’

Association

spokesman James

Wilding said he

wasn’t happy with the

outcome of the meeting.

“We do not think

that Christchurch

residential suburbs

should have these very

big trucks, particularly

40-50 tonne B-trains,

with all the noise,

“We’ve lived by the park

for 48 years. Our daughter

lives nearby, and that’s why

we bought this place . . .

our daughter and grandchildren

will be just across

the bridge.”

Mrs Anderson said the

couple had planned on taking

legal action, but they

didn’t have any fight left in

them.

“We couldn’t bear it any

more. We had a lawyer

representing us, but it got

too much . . . we just can’t

keep going at our age, and

probably they know that.”

“Unfortunately, we just

have to let it go and move

on.”

fumes, vibration and

risk, traversing them

unnecessarily when there

are commercially-lined

roads and purpose-built

major arterial roads and

highways available.”

He said there should be a

“balance” in the decisions

made on roading issues

across the city.

“We do not want

these roads to have the

CBD treatment, but it

is difficult to reconcile

what has happened in

the CBD, in the interests

of the environment,

health, safety, heritage

and amenity, with

various council decisions

discounting those factors

in various suburbs,” he

said.

“A more balanced

approach to each might be

good.”

Fendalton couple give up

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board chairman Sam

MacDonald said the city

council would work with

residents to alleviate

concerns about the tank,

which will be constructed

next to the original pump

station.

“On the whole, it was a

good outcome.”

“We listened to the

concerns raised through

the deputations, and one of

the recommendations was

that the staff would work

with residents just to make

sure the planting plan and

everything around it is

satisfactory.”

NATASHA SENIOR is just

14-years-old and already making

her mark in the fashion scene.

The Burnside High School

student designed and made a

garment that has been selected

to feature on the New Zealand

Fashion Week runway.

Her design will be part of the

Walk the Line event on Sunday,

which is run by youths hoping to

get into the fashion industry.

Natasha said her design was

inspired by New Zealand culture

and the Pacific Ocean.

“I wanted something really

close to home, promoting New

Zealand culture, rather than

designing something ‘in’ that’s

internationally sold because

everyone wears it. I wanted

something that would make an

impact on the market.”

“To be based on the Pacific,

I used swimwear material for

the pants, a material called

neoprene. It kind of looks like

the ocean.”

It won’t be the first time

Natasha has made waves in

fashion – she’s taken part in the

Brother Design Stars competition

“a few times” and won it in

her second year of competing.

Natasha discovered her love

for fashion when she was just

five-years-old.

Where’s the money?

Fendalton-

Waimairi-

Harewood

Community

Board deputy

chairman

Aaron

Campbell writes about the

money being spent on the

state of local roads

COSTLY BUMP: Aaron

Campbell asks where will the

money come from to fix the

city’s potholed roads.

THE CITY council has been

trying to make a silk purse from a

sow’s ear and central government

holds the purse strings. In the

end, this costs Christchurch

ratepayers.

Recently issues raised by

residents all over the north-west

highlight the dissatisfaction

many have with the state of our

roads, traffic volumes and their

negative effects on local amenity.

More could be done, but where is

the money going to come from?

Over two thirds of heavy vehicle

journeys are made on local

roads, averaging 12km per trip.

This generates half the revenue

(tax) going to the National Land

Transport Fund, yet less than half

the money spent comes back to

our local roads – reducing work

programmes and levels of service.

So what were the priorities?

Economic growth and productivity,

safer journeys and seven

roads of national significance,

including Christchurch’s motorways.

The Government wanted

reduced travel times in key corridors

and increased freight vehicle

productivity across the network.

The city council’s 2015 response

to the Government Policy

Statement on land transport said

44 per cent of our roads had minor

to severe earthquake damage

and that the SCIRT repair programme

will result in significant

ongoing costs. It also stated that

funding for maintenance hadn’t

increased with inflation.

The NZ Automobile Association

expected that a funding

shortfall would emerge over

time as there wasn’t an equity of

distribution. Guess what? They

were right.

We can only wait to see if the

2018 GPS makes material change

as it aims to address infrastructure

deficits across regions and

cities, while increasing economic

growth, improving safety and

taking a broader view on public

transport, modal change and

emission reduction.

Finally, I ask what happened

to the $63.4 million loan in the

2015 GPS for the reinstatement

of earthquake damaged roads in

Christchurch?

HEARD: Christchurch Central MP Duncan Webb meets with

Mairehau residents to hear their concerns about bus route

changes in the area.

concerns about a bus

route change that would

see buses drive through

Nick Stoneman

– All of you

complain (but)

still want the Orbiter

near by and

expect it to turn

off a busy road just

to loop around .

. . then head out again which

would require a massive timetable

rewrite. Sorry if you don’t

like the proposals, then tough.

Nic Davies – Get over it,

it’s not all about you, think of

other people who need buses,

children should not be playing

on the road, maybe move to the

country for peace and quiet.

Amber Underwood – I

live in this area, and it’s not really

about the noise, it’s

more about the safety of

the kids walking to and

from school that people

are worried about. Particularly

with a bus stop

moving right next to a

pedestrian crossing, decreasing

visibility and

impeding traffic flow.

John Robb – Stop whining

– you sound like Aucklanders.

St Andrew’s finds the right beat

• By Ashleigh Monk

ST ANDREW’S College Pipe

Band has returned from the

world pipe band championships

with smiles on their faces.

The group took out second

place in the juvenile category of

the competition, which was held

in Glasgow, Scotland.

Scottish co-education school

Dollar Academy, from Dollar,

near Stirling, came first.

Pipe major Louis Newman,

who had been playing the

bagpipes since he was six years

old, said the 15 day trip was an

amazing experience.

“We were practising every day,

of course, and doing all the sightseeing

of monuments, castles

and all the cool things you do in

another country.”

He said the competition was

stiff, so the group was “ecstatic”

to come second.

“We all watch videos of bands

playing on YouTube, but to

be there and actually watch

these class bands in action was

surreal.”

“We’ve been working at it

for such a long time, and these

Scottish bands are simply unreal,

they are top quality bands. So for

us to come second just made us

ecstatic.”

Band director Richard Hawke

said it was a “brilliant” result for

the 27 current students and three

2017 leavers who made up the

band.

“The worlds provide the

ultimate test of the skill and

ability of our pipers and

drummers and the band’s

performance was absolutely first

class.”

Mr Hawke said the result was

even more impressive given

the band faced two significant

challenges.

“Going from a Christchurch

winter into a Scottish summer

is a dramatic change for the

instruments. We were also

coming out of the New Zealand

off-season and hadn’t competed

since winning the nationals in

March,” he said.

“Our only competitive practice

was playing in a couple of smaller

competitions in Scotland the

week before the worlds, when

we faced teams which had been

competing solidly for three

months.”

More than 8000 pipers and

DRUMMER: The St Andrew’s College Pipe Band performed in Glasgow and took out second

place in the juvenile category of the world pipe band championships.

drummers from 13 countries

competed at the event, which

celebrated its 70th anniversary

this year.

This was the fith time St

Andrew’s College had competed

at the Worlds since 2007, with its

young band winning the juvenile

title in 2013.

Rector Christine Leighton said

she was “incredibly proud” of the

team.

“The competition at the worlds

is intense and the standard was

unbelievably high in the Juvenile

grade. The commitment and

discipline required by members

of the band is very demanding.”

SCHOOLS

MUSICIANS: The St Andrew’s College Pipe Band had an “amazing experience” during its 15 day trip to Scotland’s Glasgow to compete in the world pipe band

championships.

Papanui kendo champ brings

medals back from nationals

• By Jacob Page

KENDO MARTIAL artist Masa

Matsunami has returned home

to Papanui with three golds

and one bronze medal from

the national championships in

Invercargill.

The Canterbury Kendo Club

member won the senior men’s

event while clubmate and Cashmere

High School student Kai

Edwards was third.

Upper Riccarton’s Eric George

was named the men’s junior

champion.

The Canterbury team of

George, Edwards and Matsunami,

as well as Edgeware’s

Yuma Tamaki and Sydenham’s

Chris McGill, won the overall

teams event.

Matsunami, 18, said he was

delighted to pick up both the

senior men’s and teams national

titles – a feat that his coach Blake

Bennett was unable to do during

his career.

Bennett, who also coaches

New Zealand, said he couldn’t

be happier with the entire team’s

performance.

“I was very pleased that the

men’s team was able to do so well

at the national level,” he said.

“We have worked to

incorporate a great deal of

cutting edge training and

coaching tools in preparation,

and it all came together really

well on the big day,” he said. “We

are extremely grateful to the New

Zealand Racing Board for their

kind grant to get the team to the

nationals. As kendo is completely

amateur, results like this for our

young guys wouldn’t be possible

without this assistance.”

Matsunami will be part

team to attend the 17th

forward to the experience.”

Hickford first to score

100 for St Andrew’s

• By Jacob Page

ST ANDREW’S College striker

Declan Hickford has become the

first person to score 100 goals for

the St Andrew’s College first XI.

The 17-year-old scored nine

goals against Rangiora High

School in the lead-up to the

semi-finals to achieve the feat.

St Andrew’s lost the play-off

game 4-1 to St Thomas’ last

week. But St Andrew’s will meet

Marian College in the girls final

tomorrow afternoon.

Burnside High School will

meet St Thomas’ in tomorrow

night’s final after they beat

Cashmere High School 3-0.

Hickford has scored 102 goals

for his school, which included 43

this season.

achieved it. It’s such an honour,”

Hickford said.

regular in Canterbury age-group

teams and is in his first season

with Selwyn United in the

Mainland Premier League.

“The physicality is clearly

something that takes time to

adjust to, 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 teams.”

Hickford said playing in the

MPL means he has more time

on the ball at secondary school

level.

“I’m working on my finishing

skills, mostly because I have

more time on the ball than what

I would have in the MPL,” he

said.

Hickford will now chase his

Field trip has big impact on students

• By Anan Zaki

BURNSIDE HIGH School

student Brayan Kamminga

loves a bit of action-packed

engineering, especially when it

comes to cars and planes.

He and 29 other students from

Burnside High visited Holmes

Solutions’ Templeton impact

testing centre as part of the ‘week

of engineering’, organised by

Engineering New Zealand.

Brayan said his favourite

part of the visit was seeing the

crashed cars from impact tests.

“I would have liked to see them

But the 17-year-old and his

The Canterbury

Each event will offer an

opportunity to learn and

SPRING flowers blossoming

throughout the city are a clear

signal that it’s time to get your

vegetable garden set up and ready

to go.

To help the Canterbury

Horticultural Society has set up

a specialist fruit and vegetable

group focusing on edible

gardening.

Organisers say the group

provides an invaluable way

for new gardeners to learn

how gardens are managed in

each season, and learn about

techniques such as crop rotation,

composting, and fertilising.

The first session will focus

on tips and tricks for growing

plants from seeds. Experienced

Christchurch home gardener Phil

Ducker will give a demonstration

on how best to plant seeds.

Mr Ducker’s presentation aims

to provide answers on where to

plant, how close to plant, how

SCHOOLS

peers did see some action.

The visit involved dropping a

trolley full of weights from the

top of a 6m tower into a barrier

filled with water.

The students’ objective was to

work out how much water should

be added to the crash barrier to

make the car stop in exactly 1m.

“To solve this problem we took

measurements of the friction

force, then calculated how much

deep to plant, which companion

plants go best together, which are

better separate, and which plants

could be directly sown in the

garden.

Society programme coordinator

Michele Moore said

there is a lot to learn about the

subject.

“There will be

recommendations on where to

get your seed and which varieties

do well here in Canterbury.

Each variety has particular

requirements, so success depends

on getting these things right,” she

said.

It was important to share

that information down the

generations so that it is not lost,

Mrs Moore said.

Each month, Peter Saunders

will present a segment of his

running commentary, A Visual

Guide To Gardening Through The

Year, which will focus on what he

has been doing in his garden. By

following Mr Saunders’ progress,

it is hoped other attendees can

gain some insights to apply in

their own gardens.

The meetings will be held

monthly with plants, books and

tools available for purchase, as

well as raffles and refreshments.

Tohu

‘To Think’

‘A mark, a sign.’

‘Anything serving as a reminder – token of rememberance”

Little River Gallery shows for the second time a collaborative exhibition by Robin Slow (painting), Brian Flintoff

(carving) and Bob Bickerton (soundscape). This year they follow on in the tradition of visually forwarding

histories and stories to be reflected on and become immersed in.

Robin Slow an artist whose work is also held in private collections, galleries and marae throughout the country

has used paint to create traditional forms used in conjunction with natural forms. The method of producing the

work has a traditional background but there has been an evolving of techniques and materials. This series of

works takes some traditional tohu, be it in the form of the composition, the patterns created or the creatures. It

explores the past and present to produce another tohu and that is the sign towards the future.

For many years, Brian Flintoff has created taonga puoro (musical instruments) for players and musicians

throughout the country. Not only do these create unique sounds but he has carved into them the stories and

histories that are woven into their function. His works are held in many major galleries throughout the world as

well as collections and marae here in Aotearoa.

From the painted images, carvings and reference points each has used in their works, Bob Bickerton created a

CD to enhance aspects visually but aurally as well to form a piece to be contemplated on and be enriched by.

Tohu (signs) surround us manifesting before and through our differing senses. Presented as a-tinana

(physical) and wha wairua (spiritual) appearances, patterns, actions, sounds of the surrounding environment

encompassing the seen and unseen, the ora and the mate.

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 large open plan living room/kitchen/dining room

| 2 car garage | 3 off-street parks | plus 2 bedroom cottage | Listing #7407

With spectacular views of Mt Evans and

Purau Bay this has to be one of the most

beautiful and sought after properties in

the picturesque Purau Valley. Peaceful and

private this modern energy efficient home

sits on a very usable elevated 5.6 hectare

site, a mixture of very well fenced flat

paddocks, mature trees, some fruit trees,

a meandering stream and a woodlot, so

firewood forever!

under-floor heating and a grunty woodburner

with a wetback. There are 4 double

bedrooms, 2 bathrooms including an en

suite and large open plan living opening

onto a North facing patio area to enjoy the

afternoon sun. There is also an internal

access double garage.

standard is well irrigated and has excellent

and priceless water supplies including its

own spring making this versatile property

suitable for a diverse number of uses or

alternatively a great lifestyle property for a

family.

There is also a very tidy modern 2

bedroom cottage set well away from the

main house and also enjoying privacy and

lovely views, ideal as a homestay, Airbnb or

extended family but certainly some income

potential. Plenty of storage with a 3 or 4 bay

shed, easily converted for horses, mature

walnut trees and plenty of places to explore.

Seldom do properties like this come

to the market, here is the chance only 30

minutes’ drive from town to live the dream

and if you desire to be semi self-sufficient.

indulge in and in the pipeline is a cinema,

supermarket and additional shops, as well
