Huge support for

East’s coastal stand

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

and Matt Salmons

DAVID EAST has received

a flood of support over his

allegations the city’s District

Plan was tampered with, which

could see him asked to resign as

a city councillor.

He is facing a disciplinary

hearing and has been stood

down as chairman of the regulatory

performance committee

after calling for an independent

inquiry into an erased clause in

the District Plan.

Cr East alleged the omission

of a discretionary rule in the city

council’s High Flood Hazard

Management Area policy was

against the intentions of the

replacement district plan independent

hearing’s panel.

Without the discretionary

rule known as the enable clause

residents are finding it almost

impossible to build or extend

their properties within the

HFHMA.

It affects people in Southshore

and Redcliffs.

The city council fought the inclusion

of the clause during the

process of the plan’s ratification

by a hearings panel two years

ago.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board chairwoman Kim Money,

deputy chairman Tim Sintes and

Linwood-Heathcote-Central

Community Board member

Darrell Latham are also facing

disciplinary action over their

outspoken comments.

Said Cr East: “I am actually

overwhelmed by the amount

of support I have had. Not only

from my own community but

SOUTHERN VIEW

I’M NOT surprised David East has got the

backing of the community over his stand

on the flooding and building issues which

will affect many in Southshore and across

the estuary in Redcliffs.

But it looks like he will get slam-dunked

by Mayor Lianne Dalziel and city council bosses.

Time will tell if he will be asked to resign as a city councillor.

Coastal-Burwood Community Board chairwoman Kim Money

and her deputy Tim Sintes are also facing council disciplinary

action too.

Councillors are supposed to follow certain rules when they

speak publicly. But Dalziel and the city council have been very

heavy-handed.

East’s public stand is what people wanting to build on their

empty sections want to hear.

They need a voice.

“He has opened it right up,

Suburb of Sockburn quickly disappearing

• By Anan Zaki

SOCKBURN HAS been

mentioned in city records for

140 years, but local identities say

their suburb is under siege.

Former Paparua County clerk

and Sockburn resident of 49

years, Bryan Mooar, believed

the growth of the Wigram

subdivisions have played a large

role in the demise of Sockburn.

Mr Mooar was at the Paparua

County Council for 25 years, 13

of those as clerk, until it amalgamated

with Christchurch in

1989.

Sockburn resident of 68 years

Eddie Cutts agreed with Mr

Mooar’s views.

Mr Cutts is the grandson of

Albert Cutts, who once owned

Chokebore Lodge, which was associated

with horse racing.

“It’s disappearing because

we’ve got the very big Wigram

[residential] complex at the old

airport, together with the retirement

villages,” Mr Mooar said.

He said other factors that have

fuelled the decline of the area

was the 2011 closures of the

former Sockburn Service Centre

and the suburb’s last major freezing

works, the Alliance Freezing

Company.

The Alliance freezing works

IDENTITIES: Long-time Sockburn residents Bryan Mooar and Eddie Cutts at the Sockburn

roundabout.

was at the former site of the city

abattoir on Racecourse Rd.

Another closure that affected

the area was the Sockburn swimming

pool, which shut down in

2006, Mr Mooar said.

“The old abattoir was an old

identity and provided a lot of

job availability for people in the

area,” he said.

Recently the Sockburn Fire

Station was renamed Wigram

and next year Sockburn School

will move to Wigram.

“It’s not just quietly disappearing

. . . it’s being gobbled up,” Mr

Mooar said.

He believed the future of

the suburb was industrial and

there was no way to stop the

suburb being taken over.

“It’s just a matter of progress,

the city expanding and it’s only

one or two kilometres from

Riccarton Rd, which is a main

route,” Mr Mooar said.

He did not feel sad about

Sockburn being eroded away, as

he believed it was for the greater

good of the city.

Mr Cutts said much of Sockburn

has already disappeared as

the area was known for its horse

racing stables.

He believed the city’s population

growth has negatively

impacted the racing history of

the area.

“It’s disappearing now, all that

land by the Riccarton Racecourse

is being gobbled up developers

for high density living.

“Racecourse Rd and the surrounding

streets had horses

going to the track every morning

and now you’re not even allowed

a horse on the road. So Sockburn

has lost its identity.”

Mr Cutts wished his children

and grandchildren enjoyed the

area like he was able to.

“But you can’t live in the past

unfortunately, I would like to

though. We used to go over to

the racecourse and disappear for

the day, play in the pits, shoot

rabbits and fly kites.”

Rich farming and equine history

CITY LIBRARY records

showed that Sockburn was

first mentioned in 1878, in an

advertisement in The Press.

It was referred to as the “old

racecourse platform (Sockburn)”.

Library records showed that

Sockburn was the name of an

hold homestead of a farm, which

occupied the site where the city

abattoir stood on Racecourse Rd.

The railway platform on Alloy

St was first called Racecourse,

because it served the Riccarton

Racecourse.

The platform was later moved

to Hornby but a need developed

for a new station on the original

site. When this was built it was

given the name Sockburn.

In 1903, the Cyclopedia of New

Zealand described Sockburn as

a farming suburb, which was

rapidly becoming a residential

suburb.

The book stated that Sockburn

was home to a number of

abattoirs belonging to the city

council. There were also several

training stables in the neighbourhood.

In 1916, the suburb had an

airport to its name, but it was

renamed after the former mayor

Sir Henry Wigram in 1923.

The area was part of the

Paparua County Council until

1989, when it amalgamated with

the Christchurch City Council.

Since the turn of the 21st-century,

population figures indicated

slow growth in the area.

City council statistics showed

that from 2001 to 2016, the

population of Hornby/Sockburn

grew from 16,000 to an estimated

17,800.

In the same period, the population

of Halswell/Wigram jumped

from 19,000 to an estimated

26,000.

Sooty set to move out of The Swamp

Well-known publican

Stephen “Sooty” Moffett

is moving on from the

Islington Tavern after 26

years. He sat down with

reporter Anan Zaki to

discuss the highs and

lows

IT WAS the night of September

4, 2010, the city was still in

shock from the magnitude 7.1

earthquake which struck that

morning.

Businesses all over the city

were closed, but on Main South

Rd, the queues for the Islington

Tavern, also known as The

Swamp, spilled onto the footpath.

“We never missed a day. There

was just nowhere else [for people]

to go. One in the morning and

we had 100 people outside and

100 people inside and we’re only

allowed 144 people,” recalls Mr

Moffett.

“At one stage we had 11 doormen,

so it takes everything

you make away. We had people

dragging each other through

windows, it was crazy.”

The 54-year-old took over The

Swamp in August 1992, and

moved in above the pub. To this

day he does not know how it

became known as The Swamp.

“No idea and no one has ever

told me. It was always here.

Whether it had something to do

with the freezing works around

here, I don’t know,” Mr Moffett

said.

The pub has remained a popular

watering hole for freezing

workers and rugby league players.

When Mr Moffett took over, it

was his first foray into hospitality.

“My former in-laws were in

the [hospitality] game, and at the

time we thought it was a great

idea.”

Initially it was hard, working

long hours to keep the business

running, but that was just part of

the “tough” industry.

“I really slogged it out back

then,” he said.

One memorable moment that

he will never forget in his 26

years at The Swamp was a breakin

in the late 1990s.

“The most bizarre thing that’s

ever happened is I got robbed by

two people in wetsuits and [they]

emptied our gaming machines.

“The alarms didn’t go off, the

window was taken out and they

came through,” Mr Moffett said.

The break-in was caught on a

CCTV camera, but police were

never able to catch the thieves,

he said.

Mr Moffett started $5 roasts

which packed in customers.

“Twenty-six years ago, there

was just less choice. Hospitality is

really tough on the food game at

the moment.

“To sell a roast to a young

person now would be pretty hard,

whereas back then they would

come looking for it,” Mr Moffett

said.

Behaviour at pubs have also

changed for the better in recent

years, he said.

“Twenty-six years ago you’d

be waiting at the back door for

something to happen. It was the

wild west.

“Whereas now, if something

happened it would make the

newspaper,” Mr Moffett said.

When fights broke out, he

had no time for it and trespass

notices were handed out almost

immediately.

Mr Moffett said he is selling the

business to a “North Island-based

development company.”

He said the owners did not

want to be named.

However, Mr Moffett will still

be at The Swamp until the new

owners fully take over in late

February.

He decided to sell the business

after struggling through a year

of roadworks at Pound Rd from

2016 to 2017.

“It was never really for sale,

they [the new owners] came

trying to buy it and I guess once

you see roadworks around here,

you realise how vulnerable you

are to it affecting your business.

“We had a drastic change in

turnover, revenue fell about 20

per cent. But I’m not going to

say how much we turn over,” Mr

Moffett said.

He does not know what the

new owners plans are for the

property, but he believes the

name The Swamp will be kept.

And what will he miss the most

when he leaves The Swamp?

“The people. The characters

that come here, you get to know

them all over the years,” Mr

Moffett said.As for his own

nickname, “Sooty”, it originated

from The Sooty (TV) Show

TIME’S UP: Stephen

“Sooty” Moffett is

selling the Islington

Tavern, known as The

Swamp after 26 years

of ownership.

which ran from 1955 to 1992.

“When I worked at a

supermarket as a schoolboy

[in the 1970s], I used to pack

sausages, and the boss of the

butchery gave [the name].

“There was two of us [working

under the boss], I was called

Sooty and the other one was

called Sweep,” Mr Moffett said.

And he doesn’t plan to leave

the industry just yet.

“I’ve got another bar,

Schroeder’s in St Albans. At this

stage it’ll be the only one,” he

said. However, Mr Moffett did

not rule out buying a new bar.

He has some advice for anyone

looking into getting into the

hospitality industry.

“It’s [about] the customer,

the customer, the customer,”

Mr Moffett said. “No matter

what you think, it’s about the

customer.”

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

running for eight months

and is supported by prison

staff and chaplaincy, and

the Hope Church.

CLOSE SHAVE: Summerset Wigram resident Liz Johnston gets her head shaved

by Manscape owner Kaisa Pruler. ​

Wigram resident

loses her locks

SUMMERSET at Wigram

resident Liz Johnston took

a stand for cancer when

she shaved her head for a

Daffodil Day fundraiser.

Convincing village

manager Russell Walters to

join in and shave his beard,

Mrs Johnston, 72, said this

is the third head shave she

has done.

It’s an important cause

for Mrs Johnston, who

believes that all families

are affected by cancer at

some point.

“Someone at church

asked me if I’d shave my

head for cancer, and I told

her I would before I was

80.

“Unfortunately she

passed away, so I decided I

needed to do it to honour

the promise I made her,”

she said.

Mrs Johnston wanted

to raise as much money as

possible and was confident

she would have support.

“I’m sure one day they

will find an answer to

cancer. This is just another

way I can give back,” she

said.

She had her head shaved

in the village lounge of

Wigram’s Summerset

retirement village, in front

of a crowd of more than

100 residents and friends.

With a full day of

fundraising she helped

raise $4000 for the cause.

Village manager Russell

Walters said that he was

glad to be of help and very

relieved to get rid of his

overgrown beard.

Staff from hair salon

Manscape offered to give

Mrs Johnston her buzzcut.

Said Summerset Wigram

activities co-ordinator

Nicki Singer: “It was a

fantastic event and such a

fun way to raise money.

“Liz, Russell, the

residents at Summerset

Wigram and the

wider community that

supported them, should

be really proud of their

achievement.”

Mrs Johnston said she

felt “really good” after the

shave.

“It doesn’t take long to

grow back. People tell me,

‘you’re brave’, but I’m not

because I get to choose to

do it.

“There is no hero in that.

The real heroes are those

who have no choice.”

KIND DEED: Marian College students have raised nearly $500 to help support

women with endometriosis. Endometriosis New Zealand was presented

with $454 by the students who recently ran a raffle to raise the money. The

donation will go towards services and practical support for women. The

students approached businesses who donated items for the raffle. Businesses

included Kasia Stanicich Make Up, Riccarton Park, Stirling Sports Rangiora and

The Palms. Endometriosis New Zealand hair ribbons and bookmarks were

also sold, as well as one-off donations being received. From left – Marian

Putting smiles on the faces of strangers

Fire rages, homes at risk

• 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.”

Woolston duo seek

Teki-Clark to lead the way

national boxing titles


• By Jacob Page

A CHANCE at redemption and

a debut on the national stage are

the motivators for two Woolston

boxers.

Coach Holly Sullivan believes

she has a couple of dark horses in

Trevor Swainson and Hamuera

Tainui for the New Zealand

amateur championships at the

Hornby Workingmen’s Club next

month.

Swainson, 25, will compete in

the 91kg elite grade and Tainui,

14, will take part in the 63kg

cadet section.

Swainson will be competing in

his first nationals after an injured

rib ruled him out last year.

While Tainui will be looking

to go one better than his silver

medal last year at his final

opportunity in the cadet class.

“I don’t put guys in there if I

don’t think hey have a chance to

win,” Sullivan said.

“Trevor is someone who’s been

training with me for the past five

years and rediscovered his fire

for boxing after stepping away.

“He’s really excited to be

competing and just wants to

go up against the best in the

country.”

Tainui lost his gold medal bout

to Canterbury teammate Daniel

Meehan 12 months ago.

Meehan will move up to the

junior grade this year meaning

Tainui will have a chance at the

ADDINGTON’S Riverside

Boxing Club is out to prove

it can win national titles.

Defending elite 81kg

champion Sunny Teki-Clark

will lead the way but coach

Matt Neale said there are

several other boxers eager to be

called the best in the country.

“With Sunny winning the national

title last year, I’ve really

noticed how much it has lifted

his confidence,” Neale said.

“He’s training hard and setting

a great example.”

A late inclusion in the team is

Thomas Hanford who has been

in a cast after breaking his hand

while winning a South Island

Golden Gloves title in June.

“He’s had five fights this year

and only lost one,” Neale said.

“He’s only just getting back

into it and he’s a guy who has a

lot of talent and for him not to

be able to perform at nationals

would have been a real shame.”

Sophie Mulally will be

another eager for competition.

“We have been struggling to

get her matched-up with suitable

opponents lately but she

never misses training and will

be ready to go.”

Alex Oliver, who will

compete in a tough 75kg elite

class, is another quiet achiever.

“He’s not a guy who says a

lot,” Neale said.

“He comes in and works hard

and I think he’ll give a good

account of himself.

Neale, who is also a

Canterbury selector said

the team would get extra

confidence from competing

with the support of a home

crowd.

the possible futuristic look of

Plans for what the Square

could look like were released

by Regenerate Christchurch

yesterday after seven years of

debate and controversy over the

It includes three covered

pavilions, which would have

a “lattice-style” translucent

roof, which could host markets

and other events.

includes Cathedral Gardens

A CON man who tells his

intended victims he will harm

their families if they don’t pay up

may face a bigger problem than

the law – gangs.

Police have received 19 complaints

from Christchurch people

targeted by the sinister scam. It

involves phone

calls and texts to

victims who are

told the caller is

from the Mongrel

Mob, Highway 61

or Black Power.

Pay up or your

family members, Greg

including elderly Newbold

parents, will be

attacked, the caller says.

But it appears the con man is

not connected to the gangs, just

using their names to put fear into

the intended victims.

Canterbury University criminologist

Greg Newbold said yesterday

the gangs would be “filthy”.

“All I can say is he’s got a death

wish,” he said.

“They will be absolutely p***ed

off. Anybody who impersonates

a gang member is committing a

serious crime against the gang.”

Prof Newbold said the perpetrator

could get a “hiding” for that

alone.

Convicted killer involved

in high speed smash

Female

passenger

in lucky

escape

• By Barry Clarke and Emily

O’Connell

A CONVICTED killer is back

behind bars after a spectacular

crash while allegedly fleeing

police.

John Oliver Jamieson’s Subaru

Forester crashed through the

Rolleston dog park fence on

Saturday.

A spear-like fence post

smashed through the window

screen narrowly missing a

woman in the passenger seat.

Miraculously Jamieson and the

woman were unhurt.

He had earlier been recorded

driving at 180km/h on State

Highway 1.

A cut-down rifle was later

found by police in the vehicle.

Startled dog walkers said

Jamieson ran a short distance

from the vehicle before stopping

to see if the woman in the vehicle

was okay.

Police arrived soon after and

he was apprehended.

Jamieson was one of six men

found guilty of the manslaughter

of Timaru man Wayne Kerry

Bray in 2009. Jamieson received

a nine-year jail sentence. He was

on bail for other charges at the

time of the attack on Mr Bray.

Mr Bray, 26, died four days

after he was punched, kicked and

stomped on in a Timaru street.

Mr Bray had walked past a

property where there had been a

Grand street appeal, contemporary interiors

47 Hackthorne Road, Cashmere

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.
