Prompt response to fix flooding issue

• By Ashleigh Monk

A MERIVALE couple who

struggled with flooding on their

property have been successful

in spurring the city council into

action.

Colin and Valerie Averill, who

live on Garden Rd, approached

the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

last week over their concerns of

flooding from the Wairarapa

Stream which runs through their

property.

Within a few days, Mr Averill

was advised the city council

would begin work on a project to

clear a large amount of weeding

and silt from the stream.

Mr Averill said the stream

overflowed regularly and not just

when it rained, which had damaged

trees.

“We learned this year that the

river was higher than it normally

was at this time of year,” he said.

Community board chairman

Sam MacDonald said the board

decided this was an “urgent”

matter.

He said it immediately sent a

request for staff to look into solutions.

“The earthquakes had essentially

lifted the land. Previously

to the earthquake they had been

having council come and clear

the stream once a year, but

because of the silt movement that

had to increase to twice a year,”

he said.

“It got worse recently and they

don’t want it to get too much

higher because it’s imposing on

their property.”

Mr Averill said the city council

had done a “great job” managing

the stream in previous years.

PROMISING YOUNG tennis player Dylan

Heap has returned to Christchurch after a

stint in France.

And while he was there he got to train

with world No 10 and French Davis Cup

captain Arnaud Clement.

That’s no mean feat.

Heap, who plays for Waimairi, gained valuable match experience,

playing in many prestigious open tournaments during the

northern summer. He won three tournaments.

Said Heap: “I definitely benefited from the experience, which

was awesome, and can’t wait to do it all again next July.”

The world’s your oyster for promising young sports people.

And a good result too for Merivale couple Colin and Valerie

Averill (page 1).

Their flooding issues are being sorted.

Call to look at heavy vehicle ban

• By Anan Zaki

THE Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

has asked city council staff to

look at the viability of a heavy

vehicle ban in Avonhead.

Board chairman Sam Mac-

Donald said it asked staff last

week to report back by October

3.

The request comes after

Avonhead residents voiced their

anger over heavy traffic in the

Nor’West News last week.

“We’ve asked staff to go away

and basically bring us a report

and say what our options are

with regard to a [heavy vehicle]

ban in the area,” Mr MacDonald

said.

Staff will investigate options

for a heavy vehicle ban

on Roydvale Ave (between

Avonhead Rd and Memorial

Ave), Avonhead Rd (between

Roydvale Ave and Russley Rd)

and Hawthornden Rd.

“We just want them to be very

clear, with the current rules in

place, what delegations the community

board has [to ban heavy

vehicles] and what evidence they

would require to do that,” Mr

MacDonald said.

But he steered clear of committing

to seek a heavy vehicle

ban in Avonhead.

“Until we get advice [from

staff], it wouldn’t be appropriate

to comment,” Mr MacDonald

said.

Hawthornden Rd resident Jon

Leadbeater said the community

board’s request was good news.

“People in the area would welcome

that. It could be a big step

to improve safety.

“The big wagon trucks, they

are the things that are concerning

to the residents.”

He hoped increased publicity

will get heavy traffic banned in

the area.

“I feel the publicity can make

the difference. [A ban] would

be a great outcome for everyone

concerned,” he said.

Mr Leadbeater said last week

that heavy vehicles are using

Roydvale Ave, Hawthornden Rd

and Cutts Rd as a shortcut.

He said heavy traffic increased

after the Avonhead and Russley

Rd intersection was closed in

November 2015, as part of NZ

request to see if a

viable in Avonhead.

Transport Agency’s $112 million

Russley Rd upgrade.

It follows on from residents

in Fendalton and Wigram also

voicing opposition to heavy

vehicles travelling through residential

areas.

Fendalton residents last

month lost their bid to ban

heavy vehicles from the Glandovey

and Idris Rd intersection.

Lady Wigram Retirement Village

residents on Lodestar Ave

also complained about heavy

traffic last year.

Young dancers in The Nutcracker

• By Ashleigh Monk

FIVE ST Andrew’s College

students will be dreaming

of sugar plum fairies after

scoring parts in the Royal New

Zealand Ballet’s rendition of The

Nutcracker.

Eilish John, Jai Bartlett, Kate

McFerran, Charlotte Brown

and Anja Sander are part of the

school’s ballet academy and will

feature in the show at the Isaac

Theatre Royal from November

22.

Eilish, 11, and Jai, 12, said they

were “so excited” to have the

opportunity to dance alongside

some of the country’s best ballerinas.

“We got sent along to do an

audition, and then maybe about

a month later you either got an

email saying ‘sorry you haven’t

made it’ or ‘you made it’,” Eilish

said.

“We got the email to say we’d

made it and it was brilliant,” Jai

said.

Jai has been learning ballet

since he was four-years-old.

“I always liked dancing to

music as a child, whether that be

with my mum or just alone,” he

said.

“I started doing ballet before

coming to St Andrew’s, but as

soon as the ballet programme

opened in 2011 I jumped straight

in. I think I was the ‘naughty

duckling’ for one of my first performances

there.”

Eilish joined the St Andrew’s

College Ballet Academy four

years ago.

“I had just moved to Christchurch

and was a bit nervous about

everything, and I wanted to try

some new things. So when ballet

came up I thought I’d give it a go,

and I fell in love with it,” she said.

The pair practised for hours

each week and both played parts

in last year’s school production of

The Nutcracker.

About 60 children had been

picked to play parts in Christch-

Play It Strange chief executive

Mike Chunn said he was

“amazed” at the talent that came

out of Christchurch. “I have the

best job in the world, listening to

these songs, it’s that simple.”

Several famous New Zealand

artists had been featured on the

album in past years, including

Kimbra, Annah Mac, and Georgia

Nott from the band Broods.

Mr Chunn started Play it

Strange in 2004. The first album

featured 19 songs, and this year’s

album will include more than 40

out of the 370 entries.

“Every single day, every single

secondary school student will

hear a recorded song, and the

craft of writing them is completely

absent from life at school. Why?

So that’s what I thought, let’s do

something about it,” he said.

Each finalist has been given

funding to professionally record

their song to be included on the

album, which will be released by

the end of the year.

A THIEF was chased by staff at

a souvlaki shop and ended up

jumping a fence after he stole a

donation box.

The suspect left Redwood

Souvlaki with the box, which

held about $100 in donations

for Cholmondeley Children’s

Centre.

Shop manager Arshdeep

Dhillon said he and his staff were

at the back of the store when the

man pulled the box from the

front counter.

“He just quietly came in and

grabbed it and ran off,” he said.

“When he ran we tried to

catch him, but he ran so fast and

jumped over a fence.”

He said although there wasn’t

a lot of money in the donation

box, he was upset someone had

taken it. “It’s awful, the money is

supposed to be for those kids.”

Solution found to fix flooding issue

•From page 1

But he was glad a long-term fix

was being implemented.

“We’re used to getting a bit of

flooding when it rained,

but what we’re concerned

about is the higher

average flow. There’s a

difference between the

flash flooding and the

longer term flooding, and

we’ve lost a few trees over

the year because of the

higher average flow,” Mr

Averill said.

He said he and his

wife were not the only ones

who had flooding issues as their

neighbours’ properties were also

affected.

“There’s a bit of an island that

we share with our neighbours

at the side of our property, and

that’s given us a bit of a problem.

The river does come up quite

quickly, and our island nearly

goes underwater.”

Mr Averill said he

was notified by the city

council that work would

start yesterday to clear

weeds and silt from the

stream along about a

1km stretch from Mona

Vale to the couple’s

Sam property.

MacDonald “It’ll take about two or

three weeks and they’ll

get rid of it, which is very good

news for us.”

Top chippie builds new career

• By Ashleigh Monk

AFTER STUDYING fine arts at

Canterbury University, St Albans

resident Peter Ravn decided he

wanted to work with his hands.

His dream is to build sets for

theatre productions – and what

better way to gain the necessary

skills than with a carpentry apprenticeship?

Now the 26-year-old has been

named the Central South Island

Registered Master Builders Carters

apprentice of the

year.

Mr Ravn trained under the

Building and Construction

Industry Training Organisation

and is employed by Armitage

Williams Construction Ltd.

He said winning the award was

“pretty overwhelming”.

“It’s a pretty big honour for me

and the company I work for.”

“I gave it a go last year and

wasn’t successful, so I tried again

this year. It was a motivation to

see how you faced off against

your contemporaries”

The regional competition involved

building something from

scratch in just two hours. Mr

Ravn built a tool box.

“Having to deal with your

nerves and having to deal with

industry leaders, I definitely

think it was a massive thing you

need to overcome. So different to

when you are working on site.”

After finishing high school,

Mr Ravn began a fine arts degree

at Canterbury University before

securing the opportunity to train

as a carpenter.

“I like making things, so I

thought I would give it a go and

really enjoyed it and here I am

now. In Christchurch there was a

lot of demand.”

“The building industry is

amazing, and we do things that

other people can’t do, we create,

and you get paid to learn. Definitely

give it a go and see where

you stand.”

Mr Ravn will take part in the

national competition in Auckland

on November 9.

Chlorine-free

north-west

one step closer

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE NORTH-WEST is one

step closer to being chlorine-free

as the construction of a new

pump station finishes.

The new Gardiners pump

station has been constructed in

Harewood Park, replacing the

old Harewood pump station.

City council planning and

delivery manager John Moore

said the project cost $6.05 million

including investigation,

design, construction, project

management, construction and

commissioning of the pump station,

suction tank, diesel tank,

two deep wells, access road and

drainage.

“The pump station was built

to replace Harewood pump station,

which had a shallow well,

and also to provide additional

supply capacity for growth in

the north-west area, particularly

in Highsted and Upper Styx,”

he said.

The city council stopped chlorinating

the Thompsons water

pump station in late August,

bringing the total number of

pump stations across the city

not being chlorinated to eight.

Including the Gardiners

pump Station, that number was

now nine.

• By Ashleigh Monk

IT’S BEEN a long time coming,

but the MacFarlane Park Centre

has opened in Shirley.

The centre will serve as a community

hub alongside the original

MacFarlane Park Neighbourhood

Centre.

Shirley Community Trust manager

Jane Mitchell said she was

“overwhelmed” by the support

from the community.

“We had probably about 120

people there, and I think there

would have been more if the

weather was better . . . It was a

lovely atmosphere.”

The building, which had a

large meeting room, two offices,

a kitchen and toilets, was

donated to the city by the Lions

Clubs International Foundation

following the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

It was used as the temporary

St Albans Community Centre

on Colombo St before moving to

Shirley.​The Shirley Community

Trust had been operating out of

the MacFarlane Park Neighbourhood

Centre, a small building at

the park, for 16 years.

“We’ve had the neighbourhood

centre, but this now will allow us

to grow the things we do because

it’s a bigger space. Plus, there’s an

opportunity for other groups to

Trust’s new centre.

come and hire the centre so that

offers more to the community,”

she said.

There were some delays to the

process as the city council initially

estimated the cost to relocate

the building would be $100,000.

However, more detailed planning

revealed it would cost $225,000.

The initial $100,000 was approved

through the city council’s

Annual Plan, and an additional

$125,000 was fast tracked for

the move. The trust facilitated

community meals, after school

programmes, touch rugby, food

banks, parenting courses, numeracy

and literacy classes, and

youth workers in local schools.

Experience Chinese culture

• By Ashleigh Monk

A CHINESE tea ceremony,

calligraphy and martial arts are

on the cards for the Christchurch

Boys’ High School Chinese

Immersion Day.

The event is in its fifth year and

gives students and their families

across the city the chance to

experience Chinese culture firsthand.

Christchurch Boys’ High

School head of Chinese Huili

Feng said the day had attracted

hundreds of visitors in previous

years.

“The aim is to create more

opportunities for students from

other schools who do not have

Chinese language courses to

get some experience in Chinese

culture,” she said.

“The event has become popular

with around 500 participants last

year.”

Activities on the day include

Chinese painting, paper cutting,

knots, traditional games, folk

dance, a culture quiz and the

opportunity to learn Chinese

characters and numbers.

Ms Feng said she aimed to

encourage people to take part in

as many activities as possible and

even had an incentive.

“Each participant is given a

booklet with the list of activities.

KNOT MESSING AROUND: Students have a go at making

Chinese knots at last year’s Chinese Immersion Day.

The participants are required to

collect a sticker or stamp for the

completion of each activity,” she

said.

“At the end of the event, they

can collect a reward according to

the number of stickers or stamps

they have collected.”

•The free Chinese

Immersion Day will be held

on September 15 from

1.30-4.30pm in the

Fire rages, homes at risk

Mooar, Davidson eye each other up

• By Ashleigh Monk

TRAINEE BOXERS Mike

Davidson and Brad Mooar are

both feeling pretty confident as

their big fight draws closer.

The Papanui Ward city

councillor and Crusaders

assistant coach are set to battle it

out in the ring at this year’s Fight

for Christchurch on November 3.

Mooar’s campaign manager

Ben Harris organised an event

held on Thursday night to raise

extra funds for Mooar’s chosen

charity, Conductive Education

Canterbury.

The event, which was attended

by about 45 people, saw $9100

raised.

“We had some fantastic

auction items, and we sold some

sponsorship on the singlet I’ll be

wearing for the fight,” he said.

“I’ve been blown away by the

support so far. There have been

some really generous donations

and people keen to support us. It

just shows what people are wiling

to do when the cause is a good

one.”

He said he was having fun

learning the mechanics of boxing

in the lead up to the fight.

“I’m just chipping away really,

it’s going as well as it can,” Mooar

said.

“I’m just working hard on fitness

and the real fundamentals

of protecting myself and the

footwork. It’s been awesome,

and I’m in great hands with my

trainer . . . It’s definitely going

to be one hell of a challenge, no

doubt Mike has been training

hard as well.”

Davidson has experience with

endurance sports and did the

Coast to Coast earlier this year,

but had never tried boxing.

“It’s been great so far, I’m having

fun . . . I’m definitely using

a lot of different muscles that I

don’t normally use, I’m feeling it

in my upper-body,” he said.

“I guess it’s just a matter of getting

in the ring and sparring, and

getting to know what it feels like

to be punched.”

Davidson is raising money for

Cure Kids, and has so far raised

more than $1200 on his Givealittle

page.

“It’s not about the fight, it’s

not about hurting each other, it’s

about raising money for some really

worthy charities,” he said.

“I’m just trying to encourage

as many people as possible to

donate, because it’s such a good

cause, Cure Kids. Even small

amounts, it all adds up, the more

the merrier.”

He said he hoped to host a raffle

closer to the fight to assist in

his fundraising efforts.

Costume hire that

promotes sustainability

IN A world where

single-use products and

fast fashion has become

the norm, Gabrielle Heath,

owner of Petticoat Lane

Costume Hire, has recently

seen a change for the good

within her industry.

She said that over the last

two years she had noticed

a significant shift back to

people wanting to hire

costumes as opposed to

purchasing them.

“Young people have a

big consciousness around

sustainability,” Mrs Heath

said.

“People, in general, are

mindful about what they

purchase.”

The trend to buy costumes

online has not impacted

the business as she

said people still enjoy coming

in to try on costumes

and receive personalised

fittings and accessories.

For most people, hiring

a costume is both costeffective,

practical, and has

an ethical value.

Creating a sustainable

business practice has always

been part of her business

model. Costumes are

designed in-house, fabric

sourced locally, and made

either in the company’s

studio or contracted out to

local sewers.

With over 14,000 hire

items available, Mrs Heath

said that the most popular

of all time was the Scoobie

Doo costume.

Costumes were regularly

hired out for birthdays,

parties, corporate events,

advertising and television,

work conferences,

children’s school dress-up

days, and NCEA students

studying history and

drama.

“As a destination store,

Fire rages, homes at risk

Putting smiles on the faces of strangers

• By Ashleigh Monk

SMALL ACTS of kindness

“make the world a better place”

- at least, that’s what Feebee

Newlands believes.

Mrs Newlands is the founder

of Pay It Forward, a volunteer

organisation which has been

dedicated to carrying our

random acts of kindness for the

past five years.

On September 1, the 15th

New Zealand Random Acts of

Kindness Day, Mrs Newlands

and her team armed themselves

with flowers and lollies to give

out around the city.

“It was a lot of fun this year, we

ran into a lot of people who had

bad days and they said ‘thank

goodness you’ve come along and

cheered me up, I feel so happy

now’,” she said.

“There were a lot of emotions

this year, there have obviously

been some tough times for

people, so it’s just a matter

of bringing some cheer to

Christchurch.”

The group visited Ronald

McDonald House, the YMCA,

the Margaret Mahy Family

Playground, Christchurch

Charity Hospital, Ngaio Marsh

Retirement Village and others.

“It was a day of joy and

excitement, and just people

getting out of their comfort zone

. . . It’s so great to have some fun

with the kids, and the elderly

were just beside themselves

getting flowers and chocolates.”

This year’s theme was suicide

awareness, and Mrs Newlands

said the support from local

sponsors had been “incredible”.

“We had a focus on suicide

awareness which was tough

because two of the girls have lost

their a mother, brother and son

to suicide,” she said.

“Everything gets donated,

it’s amazing. Nona [general

manager] from Moffat’s Flower

Company, as soon as she found

out it was for suicide awareness,

she just gave us bucket-loads of

flowers, it was incredible.”

Mrs Newlands started the Pay

It Forward group five years ago.

She said she wanted to inspire

others to perform random acts

of kindness not only just on

September 1, but all year round.

“It’s pretty powerful. It’s a great

message of remembering to reach

out, build a better community

and love and support one

another,” she said.

“It’s a really important day,

and we want to create that ripple

effect. There are people that do

random acts of kindness all the

time, but there are some that

don’t do it, and we want to get

people to start doing it all the

time.”

She said she wanted to expand

Pay It Forward to include people

from all over the country,

encouraging them to reach out to

their own communities.

“It’s all about linking people

from all over New Zealand up,”

she said.

“I’m trying to collect people

from all over New Zealand to

make the magic happen. We have

some guys in Nelson, we had

someone from Oamaru, some

from Hokitika, people from

Auckland.”

After advocating strongly for

our residents for the three laning

of the Waimakariri Bridge and

a cycle lane with my petition to

NZTA last year, it’s exciting to

see construction is underway.

This project shows how powerful

our voices can be when we

work together. My petition was

about cementing the benefits of

National’s major roading projects

such as the Western Belfast

Bypass, which has significantly

shortened travel times.

Our young people are

submitting their applications to

be my Youth MP 2019 and, once

again, I am impressed by their

calibre.

The deadline is Monday 8

October at 5pm. It’s a great

opportunity for our young people

to put their passion for social

issues into action.

Ahead of the last Youth

Parliament, my Youth MP and

I held roadshows around the

electorate to hear the views of

our young people. If you are

interested, please ring my office

on 03 3270514 for details.

I am working with Northwood

residents to have their concerns

heard by NZTA about the Main

North Road/Radcliffe Road

intersection. They’re concerned

pedestrians don’t have sufficient

time to cross safely, and that

some motorists are doing illegal

u-turns, which is increasing the

dangers. After meeting with

residents, I’ve written to NZTA

requesting a meeting to explore

solutions such as changing the

signal phasing of the traffic lights.

It was an easy decision for

me to get behind the YMCA

Canterbury Youth Awards again

this year to acknowledge how

much our young people are

giving back to their communities.

Well done to Thomas Robson

for winning the Matt Doocey

Supreme Youth Award for

Waimakariri for your dedication in

serving our community.

email Murray Williams at papanuiheritage@gmail.com or phone 3554 841.

Too many St Andrew’s for Papanui

Papanui Heritage

group chairman Murray

Williams investigates how

Hartley Ave was named

THE AREA of south Papanui,

between Normans and Blighs

Rds was originally Rural Section

135.

Eventually this became known

as the Strowan block because of

its proximity to George Gatonby

Stead’s property of that name,

which became St Andrew’s College

in 1916.

At this stage much of RS 135

had already been developed as

a residential area, for example,

Watford St in the 1890s and

Hawthorne St in the previous

decade.

Leonard Hart, (the subject

of last month’s column) in association

with H. Davey, had

acquired land that ran from the

western end of Hawthorne St as

far as Normans Rd. In 1924, they

decided to develop this area into

a residential street.

In The Press of March 3, 1924,

their joint agents, Jones, Mc-

Crostie and Co. and Pyne, Gould

& Guinness, announced an

auction for the building sections

in the new street to be called St

Andrews Tce.

The lots ranged in size from

530 to 960 m 2 . The agents noted

the ideal location; the proximity

of schools (St Andrew’s and

Waimairi) while Elmwood Park

and handy tram stops were also

mentioned.

The tendency of real estate

agents to indulge in hyperbole

was certainly alive and well in

the 1920s.

Potential buyers were assured

that all sections ‘were as level as

a bowling green’, that ‘the garden

soil was of the finest and would

grow anything’, and that the new

owners would ‘get all the sun that

shines’.

A final statement in smaller

print claimed that ‘High pressure

water supply is a certain distance

up St Andrews Tce.’

By 1938, the existence of St

Andrews Tce, College Avenue

and St Andrews Square, all in a

relatively small area close to St

Andrew’s College, was leading

to confusion and the city council

decided to rename the former to

commemorate the contribution

that Leonard Hart had made to

Papanui.

However the city already had

a Hart St (in Woolston) and thus

a compromise was to change

the name of St Andrews Tce to

HISTORY: Papanui

Heritage group

chairman Murray

Williams shares his

knowledge of how

Hartley Ave got its

name.

Hartley Ave.

Ninety-six years later this street

is a pleasant residential area.

Although there are some

examples of modern houses,

Hartley Ave also retains a period

charm; there are at least 19 examples

of Californian bungalows

dating to the development of the

street in the 1920s and a smattering

of elegant English bungalows

constructed in the 1930s.

SPORTS

Rapid rowing rise

for talented teen

• By Jacob Page

FORMER ST Andrew’s College rower

Ben Taylor is achieving his goals so

quickly he’s having to create new ones.

The 18-year-old, who

rows for Avon, had an impressive

world under-23

championships in Poland

where his coxed four took

silver.

He is now in Bulgaria

with the New Zealand

elite team for the world

championships, which got

under way over the weekend,

in the reserve men’s

pair with Joe Wright.

“It’s been an unbelievable

18 months,” he said.

“I need to set new goals

because I’ve achieved so

many of my two-to-five

year ones.”

Taylor was part of the winning Maadi

Cup squad in 2017 which not only

brought back the top prize for the first

time in the college’s history, but the

Springbok Shield as well.

Rowing is in Taylor’s blood, the last

time the school raised the shield was

when his father, Andrew, was in the boat

34 years ago.

Ben Taylor

While Taylor is essentially injury-cover

in Bulgaria he said he was still making

the most of the elite environment.

“It’s been very welcoming so far,” he

said.

“In training for the

event, it’s been great to

watch how some of the

more experienced guys go

about their business.’’

Taylor said he had a

bond with top Kiwi singlesculler

and fellow former

St Andrew’s College rower,

Robbie Manson.

“Robbie has been super

helpful,” he said.

“He doesn’t give you a

lot of help but if you ask

for it, he’ll make the time.”

Taylor said his rapid rise

had allowed him to realistically

dream about being

part of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

“I definitely wouldn’t have dreamed

about that 18 months ago,” Taylor said.

He said he wouldn’t mind what boat

he was put into.

“It doesn’t matter I’ve been looking at

everything as an opportunity so far so

I’ll try to make the best out of any situation.”

Heaps to learn in France

CANTERBURY’S No 2 ranked

tennis player Dylan Heap has

returned from France where he

polished his ground strokes with

former world No 10 and French

Davis Cup captain Arnaud

Clement.

The seven-week trip also gave

the 18-year-old Waimairi player’s

valuable match experience,

playing in many prestigious

open tournaments during the

northern hemisphere summer.

In all, he played 25 matches,

winning 19, and winning three

tournaments in the process - the

Rogne, Auriol and Ventabren

opens.

Heap said his time with

Clement was invaluable.

“It was such a step-up on

hitting balls in Christchurch

and he was so humble,” he said.

“He told me to make sure I keep

my passion for the sport as I

progress, even during the tough

time.”

Based in Aix-en-Provence and

playing at the Country Club

Aixois, he enjoyed the challenge

of practising with Clement and

playing many friendly matches

with a multitude of strong

up-and-coming French tennis

players aged between 16 and

25-years-old. Heap, a year 13

student at Christ’s College, loved

the chance to play some great

tennis and to beat many players

EXPERIENCE: Dylan Heap (right) with Arnaud Clement, former world number 10, after a practice

session in Aix-en-Provence.

above his level.

“I definitely benefited from the

experience, which was awesome,

and can’t wait to do it all again

next July,” he said.

Heap spent the first three

weeks in France in the company

of his parents, and the last

three with his Waimairi club

coach and fellow member of the

premier team, Remi Feneon.

Dylan was NZ national

under-16 singles and doubles

champion for the last two

seasons.

He will play premier grade for

Waimairi again this summer.

Before the New Zealand

season gets underway, Heap will

visit the United States to look

at universities offering sports

scholarships. He hopes that next

year will see him studying and

playing tennis there.

CHRISTCHURCH will play

host to the indoor cricket club

nationals on Thursday.

It is the first time Christchurch

has held the tournament since

2008 and a record 40 teams have

entered across the grades.

The open men’s and under-21

boy’s grades will be played at the

refurbished Howzat Riccarton

site, while the premier men’s and

over-40 men’s will be played at

Action Indoor Sports Hornby.

Indoor Cricket New Zealand

chief executive Mark Cini said it

was a thrill for Christchurch to

host the tournament again.

He said the February 22, 2011,

earthquake had made hosting

events challenging and he saw it

as a positive step.

There will also be a Gold Coast

team in the over-40 competition

for a bit of a trans-Tasman flavour.

There are Christchurch teams

throughout all the grades.

Games start on Thursday morning

and run late into the night

with finals days on Saturday.

Knitting keeps babies warm

INMATES ARE doing their bit

to keep newborn babies cosy this

month.

One hundred baby beanies

crocheted by prisoners have

been donated to newborns at

Christchurch Women’s Hospital.

The Christchurch Women’s

Prison’s knit project is growing

in popularity and currently

involves nine novice and

experienced knitters.

Poppy, who is part of the

prison group, is a very keen

knitter.

Over the past few months, she

has knitted 83 of the hats.

“I enjoy knitting and through

my knitting, I can do something

useful and give something

back to society while I am

incarcerated,” she said.

“I am approached by other

prisoners and teach them to knit

from basics to cables. I think it

is good for the younger women,

keeping them busy.”

Christchurch Women’s Prison

residential manager Tracy Tyro

said it is a constructive activity

for inmates.

“They appreciate being able

to do something positive with

their spare time. It can be a very

therapeutic activity. The knitting

group can be a good quiet space

for the women.”

“This is a project that really

appeals to the women, many

of whom have children and

grandchildren of their own. They

appreciate the difference a hat

can make to keeping little ones

warm. It offers the women an

opportunity to create something

pretty and practical for some

of our community’s most

vulnerable.”

She said in addition to helping

someone in the community, the

women have learnt other skills.

“They learn to work and be

in a group, to take instruction

and share their knowledge, they

can be creative and express

themselves in new ways. All of

these skills will be useful for

when they are released.”

The project has been

Auction: Thursday, 27 September 2018 Unless Sold Prior

5 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | 3 off-street parks | Listing #BE193116

With story book charm and grand street

appeal this home was always designed

to impress and never more so than now,

with modern homes all beginning to look

the same. The wide front portico with its

black and white chequered floor opens

into an expansive entry area with polished

wood floors, white wood panelling and the

stairway to the upstairs rooms. Impeccably

updated interiors are tasteful and elegant.

The family living and dining spaces and

kitchen are nicely connected to the central

entrance area with a second formal living

room on the opposite side. Doors can be

flung open to create large flowing spaces

or closed off for a more cosy, intimate

feel. A central wood burner efficiently

heats all the spaces with the warm glow

of real flame. The designer kitchen, all

in warm tones of white with extra wide,

freestanding oven, fits perfectly with

the character of the home while adding

contemporary convenience. A butler’s

pantry helps keep mess to a minimum

and adds a ton of storage. Adjacent to the

dining room, there is a sizeable laundry

with a showering and wash area. The

communal spaces enjoy views over the

treetops and all day sun.

There are as many as six bedrooms,

one downstairs with an ensuite and the

others all upstairs along with the main

bathroom. From the upstairs rooms there

are lovely views over the city ensuring

something to capture the eye day or night.

This substantial family home affords the

flexibility to configure it to suit your needs

with plenty of options for families of all

shapes and sizes.

philosophy, it brings you a 10 times quieter swimming experience

during more than 95% of the pool season.

For the best advice regarding which heat pump would be best for
