No plans<br />

to bring<br />

parking<br />

meters to<br />

Brighton<br />

– council<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

THERE ARE no plans to<br />

put parking meters into New<br />

Brighton.<br />

The city council has assured<br />

it won’t happen after an<br />

online backlash caused by a<br />

misunderstanding. A storm of<br />

complaints were made on the<br />

Peoples Independent Republic<br />

of New Brighton Facebook<br />

page after a city council map<br />

was misinterpreted to mean the<br />

area would get parking meters.<br />

The map was part of its draft<br />

suburban car parking policy.<br />

City council head of planning<br />

and strategic transport David<br />

Griffiths said it has no plans to<br />

bring meters in.<br />

“It is correct we are reviewing<br />

how to manage suburban<br />

parking across the city, but the<br />

introduction of on-street parking<br />

charges would only be considered<br />

if an area is having significant<br />

parking issues,” he said.<br />

Mr Griffiths said the city<br />

council does not consider New<br />

Brighton to have parking issues.<br />

from the editor’s desk<br />

THAT’S ONE very familiar (albeit a bit<br />

grizzled – sorry Garry!) face on page 1<br />

today.<br />

Garry Bombay is an institution when it<br />

comes to policing in the eastern suburbs,<br />

and more specifically in the Brighton area.<br />

We report on his new role at the New Brighton station.<br />

He’s grown up with a couple of generations of people – the<br />

good and the bad, and those who do silly and stupid things and<br />

step over the line, but then get back on track fairly quickly. No<br />

doubt with some fairly straight forward police advice.<br />

The fact Garry’s been based at one suburban station for<br />

nearly 40 years suggests he’s done a pretty good job for the<br />

community.<br />

Improvements likely for bus hub<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

MORE THAN $1 million has<br />

been earmarked for a bus hub<br />

and safety improvements outside<br />

Eastgate Mall.<br />

The money has been moved<br />

from the balance of funding for<br />

safety improvements from the<br />

Buckleys Rd, Linwood Ave and<br />

Aldwins Rd intersection following<br />

the release of the Linwood-<br />

Eastgate Area<br />

Integrated<br />

Transport<br />

Study.<br />

City councillor<br />

Sara<br />

Templeton said<br />

people heading<br />

Yani<br />

Johanson<br />

through the bus<br />

stop “deserve<br />

better” than its<br />

current state<br />

when the plan was approved during<br />

Thursday’s council meeting.<br />

“For many years we have<br />

heard from the Linwood community<br />

that the bus facilities on<br />

Buckleys Rd are not appropriate.<br />

It is the third busiest suburban<br />

bus interchange in the city.”<br />

However, Peter Jasper told<br />

the city council residents along<br />

the stretch of Buckleys Rd near<br />

the bus stop found accessing to<br />

their properties difficult due to<br />

frequency of buses.<br />

“It would be irresponsible<br />

to spend ratepayer money on<br />

more,” he said.<br />

Mr Jasper said putting in a<br />

de facto bus hub lacked “any<br />

shred of commonsense and<br />

common decency” towards<br />

home owners and residents.<br />

The bus stops in front of<br />

Eastgate cater up to 30 buses<br />

per hour and board up to 1500<br />

passengers per day, rivalling<br />

Northlands Shopping Centre.<br />

Linwood Ward city councillor<br />

Yani Johanson also questioned<br />

whether taking the funding<br />

from the intersection safety<br />

improvement was the right thing<br />

to do.<br />

“The issue here is that we are<br />

robbing a safety intersection<br />

improvement that we publicly<br />

consulted on during out LTP to<br />

pay for a public transport hub<br />

where there is still not a clear<br />

idea about what that public<br />

transport hub will look like.”<br />

However, city council staff<br />

said the safety improvements<br />

had been completed and the $1.1<br />

million was leftover.<br />

Cr Johanson would not<br />

support moving the funding<br />

without public consultation<br />

or before Environment<br />

SAFETY: $1.1<br />

million has<br />

been set aside<br />

for a new bus<br />

hub outside<br />

Eastgate Mall.<br />

Canterbury’s Regional Public<br />

Transport Plan had been<br />

released as it could impact the<br />

Eastgate area.<br />

Staff said there was work that<br />

could be done that “would not<br />

be undone” following the plan’s<br />

release and other construction<br />

would not be done before the<br />

plan was finalised.<br />

“There is still a need for the<br />

pedestrian crossing and other<br />

safety measures to be undertaken<br />

like tactiles, etc.”<br />

First on the upgrade schedule<br />

is a signalised crossing between<br />

bus stops on Buckleys Rd, staff<br />

said.<br />

No pay parking plans in Brighton<br />

•From page 1<br />

The concerns were raised<br />

after the city council approved<br />

its draft suburban car parking<br />

policy for public consultation.<br />

The city council is reviewing<br />

parking management,<br />

particularly on-street parking,<br />

to help prioritise public space.<br />

In the report on the draft<br />

policy, there was a map of the<br />

city labelled “suburban areas<br />

with high on-street parking<br />

demand and time limit<br />

restrictions”.<br />

New Brighton, Hornby,<br />

Lyttelton and Papanui,<br />

along with shopping areas<br />

in Riccarton, Merivale, near<br />

the airport and Canterbury<br />

University, were shown as key<br />

activity centres for this.<br />

The map prompted New<br />

Brighton residents to believe<br />

the suburb would get parking<br />

meters.<br />

Complaints on the Facebook<br />

page included “stupidest idea<br />

I have ever heard”; “what a<br />

bloody joke”; and “right fellow<br />

Brightarions . . . prepare for<br />

battle!”.<br />

But Mr Griffiths said the<br />

map illustrated areas where<br />

time limit restrictions (p60<br />

and p120) had already been<br />

introduced and therefore may<br />

have indicated where there is<br />

demand for parking.<br />

“The map does not identify<br />

areas where parking meters are<br />

proposed,” he said.<br />

Guardians of Rawhiti<br />

co-founder Cathy Baker,<br />

who made the original post<br />

online, said she was happy<br />

there were no plans to put<br />

meters in.<br />

NO COST: The city council has quelled concerns that it<br />

planned to introduce parking charges in New Brighton.<br />

Palmers Rd design approved<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

A LONG “drawn-out” process<br />

has led to final designs to<br />

upgrade Palmers Rd.<br />

The Coastal -Burwood Community<br />

Board has made several<br />

changes to designs which will<br />

see Palmers Rd (Bowhill Rd /<br />

New Brighton Rd) narrowed to<br />

10m to make it safer.<br />

The road<br />

has been a<br />

concern for<br />

residents with<br />

12 crashes<br />

reported<br />

between 2005<br />

and 2016.<br />

About 20<br />

David East<br />

residents<br />

attended the<br />

board meeting last week expressing<br />

their concerns over the<br />

new design.<br />

The plan will include new kerb<br />

alignments, landscaping, surface<br />

treatments, parking restrictions<br />

and line markings.<br />

The board decided the intersection<br />

of New Brighton and<br />

Palmers Rd including the traffic<br />

island will remain as it is.<br />

It also decided to narrow the<br />

Palmers/Bowhill Rd intersection<br />

to 10m wide as oppose to staff<br />

recommendation of 9m.<br />

Deputy chairman Tim Sintes<br />

said it has been “quite a drawnout”<br />

issue with there having to<br />

be several meetings with city<br />

council staff before reaching a<br />

compromise.<br />

“It hasn’t pleased everybody<br />

but I think it has pleased the<br />

majority,” he said.<br />

City councillor David East<br />

said he would have preferred<br />

Palmers Rd to be 12m.<br />

“We got 10m which is a bit<br />

of a compromise but my own<br />

personal thought is it is still a bit<br />

narrow,” he said.<br />

He said Palmers Rd should<br />

not be listed as a local road in<br />

the city’s district plan as it is the<br />

main exit from North Beach to<br />

New Brighton Rd.<br />

“Particularly when we<br />

are talking about tsunami<br />

evacuation and earthquake<br />

evacuation having a really<br />

narrow road was going to be a<br />

disaster,” he said.<br />

Board member Tim Baker<br />

said city council planner staff<br />

SAFETY:<br />

The Coastal-<br />

Burwood<br />

Community<br />

Board has<br />

given the<br />

final tick of<br />

approval<br />

to narrow<br />

Palmers Rd<br />

to 10m.<br />

got it right the first time.<br />

The staff recommendation was<br />

to narrow Palmers Rd to 9m.<br />

“You think you need 10m to<br />

turn around a corner. What a<br />

load or rubbish, 9m is plenty,”<br />

Mr Baker said.<br />

His vote was recorded against<br />

having the road narrowed to<br />

10m.<br />

FUNDING SOUGHT<br />

The Dallington Community<br />

Trust has requested funding<br />

from the Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community Board to get a<br />

disaster psychologist to run<br />

a programme for Dallington<br />

residents. Trustee David Collins<br />

said a large number of people on<br />

the edge of the residential red<br />

zone are feeling very isolated as a<br />

result of ongoing issues from the<br />

February 22, 2011, earthquake.<br />

He said it is hoping to get a<br />

wellness programme together<br />

to give people an extra level of<br />

support. A board report said city<br />

council staff will look at funding<br />

options.<br />

JOINT COMMUNITY HUB<br />

The Burwood East Residents’<br />

Association is working with<br />

for the study will come from<br />

the Community Resilience<br />

chairwoman Bebe Frayle said it<br />

is planned the study will be done<br />

before Christmas. It will look at<br />

Desk job for long-serving cop<br />

•From page 1<br />

After a short stint in<br />

Wellington and Christchurch<br />

central, Senior Constable<br />

Bombay was shifted out to New<br />

Brighton.<br />

“You choose a career, you stick<br />

at it, and before you know it the<br />

time sneaks up on you,” he said.<br />

Senior Constable Bombay<br />

said he has always liked the<br />

east side of<br />

the city and<br />

there are good<br />

people in New<br />

Brighton, which<br />

is why he has<br />

stayed there so<br />

long.<br />

“Why do<br />

Garry Bombay<br />

people keep the<br />

same old cars?<br />

It is what you are comfortable<br />

with. You know the issues, you<br />

know the people, you make your<br />

contacts, it is good,” he said.<br />

But Senior Constable Bombay<br />

doesn’t think much has changed<br />

in the suburb since he first<br />

started out.<br />

“Same crime, different time, is<br />

what I say . . . every area has its<br />

own characters who come to<br />

your attention on a regular basis.<br />

New Brighton has their share but<br />

they are good people at heart,”<br />

he said.<br />

CHALLENGING: Senior Constable Garry Bombay’s career has included the 1981 Springbok tour<br />

and searching for murdered Ashburton teenager Kirsty Bentley.<br />

He said the most important<br />

part of his role is to “treat<br />

others how you would like to be<br />

treated.”<br />

“It doesn’t matter if they are on<br />

the other side of the law or not,”<br />

he said.<br />

After 41 years in the police,<br />

Senior Constable Bombay has<br />

seen significant events.<br />

He had been in the job four<br />

years when he worked in crowd<br />

control as part of the 1981<br />

Springbok tour – where New<br />

Zealand police were armed with<br />

batons and helmets for the first<br />

time in the country’s history to<br />

control protesters.<br />

“I don’t really hold any strong<br />

political views myself. I had to do<br />

what my job was and uphold the<br />

law as directed at the time<br />

. . . you protected the supporters<br />

of the tour as well as the<br />

protesters,” Senior Constable<br />

Bombay said.<br />

He said he did not think there<br />

would be anywhere else in the<br />

world where the country’s whole<br />

police got together and worked<br />

as one.<br />

“We were just transported<br />

from one part of the country to<br />

the next for every sort of protest<br />

that was going on . . . it was<br />

quite an experience for a young<br />

policeman in those days.”<br />

THe February 22, 2011,<br />

earthquake “was a big<br />

moment’’ for Senior Constable<br />

Bombay.<br />

He had to deal with his own<br />

home in Dallington destroyed,<br />

and the grim police work that<br />

followed the deadly quake.<br />

For three months following<br />

the earthquake he was involved<br />

in body recovery and victim<br />

identification.<br />

“It was a big moment in our<br />

lives . . . but that is part of our<br />

job, you get conditioned to that<br />

over the years,” he said.<br />

Not only has Senior Constable<br />

Bombay worked in community<br />

policing, about a year ago he<br />

retired from his role of a logistics<br />

manager for the police’s search<br />

and rescue squad.<br />

He was involved in the<br />

squad for about 30 years and<br />

assisted the CIB on homicides<br />

including searching for murdered<br />

Ashburton teenager Kirsty<br />

Bentley.<br />

Senior Constable Bombay<br />

said although it has been a high<br />

demanding job, there has been<br />

some cases where people have<br />

gone missing and been found<br />

alive and well.<br />

“THat is always a great success<br />

story,” he said.<br />

Senior Constable Bombay has<br />

also used his role in the police to<br />

help the wider community.<br />

In 20<strong>09</strong>, he arranged for<br />

New Brighton police to cycle<br />

from the West Coast to the city<br />

to help the former Central New<br />

Brighton School raise about<br />

$15,000 to keep its swimming<br />

pool open.<br />

“THat made the pool very<br />

financial, they had money to<br />

spare but then the earthquake<br />

came along and kicked us in the<br />

guts. It is gone now,” he said.<br />

Woolston Fire Station opened<br />

THE NEW Woolston Fire<br />

Station has been officially<br />

opened, it is the third of six<br />

stations to be rebuilt.<br />

Fire and Emergency chairman<br />

Paul Swain, who opened<br />

the station, said the February<br />

22, 2011, earthquake devastated<br />

the city’s fire stations.<br />

“This modern station is<br />

another step in redeveloping<br />

the metropolitan city’s entire<br />

network of fire stations.”<br />

The new Woolston station<br />

was built on the site of the<br />

former station at a total cost of<br />

$6.9 million. More than 900<br />

piles were driven in to strengthen<br />

the site, which is 1.2m higher<br />

than it was before.<br />

It features two appliance<br />

bays, six single bedrooms, a<br />

gym, kitchen and lounge and<br />

purpose-built dirty-to-clean<br />

zones.<br />

There, firefighters could bag<br />

smoke-contaminated gear in a<br />

negative pressure environment<br />

before showering to prevent<br />

carcinogen transfer into clean<br />

living and work areas.<br />

The station also has a vehicle<br />

fume management system, a<br />

hose that connects to vehicle<br />

exhausts, so the appliance bay<br />

would not fill with fumes from<br />

appliances coming and going.<br />

The Woolston crew moved<br />

back to the station in mid-June,<br />

before work was completed.<br />

Fire and Emergency<br />

Christchurch metro area<br />

manager Dave Stackhouse<br />

said the rebuild programme<br />

“represents a significant<br />

organisational investment.”<br />

“[it] has provided us with a<br />

unique opportunity to build<br />

a future-proofed network<br />

of stations that meet community<br />

needs and addresses<br />

ever-changing call types and<br />

TOUR: Senior<br />

responded to 648 incidents<br />

including 73 structure fires,<br />

33 vegetation fires, 87 other<br />

fires, 76 medical events, 46<br />

Help out a<br />

penguin on<br />

Southshore<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

SOUTHSHORE families will<br />

come together to build new nests<br />

for penguins.<br />

The Southshore Residents’<br />

Association is organising the<br />

event on <strong>October</strong> 20, which aims<br />

to teach families about penguin<br />

habitats in the area.<br />

Last week the Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community Board granted $1000<br />

from its discretionary response<br />

fund to go towards the project.<br />

The building of the nests will be<br />

led by city council coastal rangers,<br />

while New Brighton Menz Shed<br />

members will pre-cut the wood.<br />

Residents’ association<br />

chairwoman Lynda Burdekin<br />

hopes it will encourage<br />

more penguins to nest in the<br />

area.<br />

The event will be held from<br />

10am-2pm at the South Brighton<br />

Community Centre on Beatty St<br />

and will include a community<br />

picnic.<br />

Older children will be involved<br />

in building the nesting boxes,<br />

while there will be a range of<br />

penguin-focused activities for<br />

younger children.<br />

Affordable housing plan<br />

Coastal­<br />

Burwood<br />

Community<br />

Board member<br />

Tim Baker<br />

writes about<br />

affordable<br />

housing in the<br />

east<br />

WE HEAR a lot about the desire<br />

for affordable housing.<br />

City councillors have voted to<br />

spend $300 million on a rugby<br />

stadium and $10 million on a<br />

loan to provide some social housing.<br />

At this rate, it will take up<br />

to 20 years before we reach the<br />

pre-earthquake number.<br />

The city council needs to do<br />

better. What else could be done?<br />

Some suggestions that could be<br />

discussed:<br />

1. Building plans could be donated<br />

to a housing trust website<br />

where they would be available for<br />

anyone to use. The city council<br />

would only need to check the<br />

recession planes, foundation<br />

requirements and outdoor living.<br />

This must save costs.<br />

2. Make minor residential units<br />

and family flats more affordable<br />

to build. A unit can be built on<br />

a large percentage of existing<br />

properties in the city. Lower the<br />

contribution fees – currently<br />

they are $13,000 upwards. Lower<br />

the cost of consents. Why does<br />

decking 2km from the beach<br />

need to have stainless screws and<br />

fittings? That’s 33 cents each for<br />

screws.<br />

3. A minor residential unit and<br />

family flat (second smaller house/<br />

flat) say 36m 2 could be built for<br />

about $80,000 in total, with help<br />

TIPS: Tim<br />

Baker has<br />

made<br />

suggestions<br />

on what can<br />

be done to<br />

create more<br />

affordable<br />

housing.<br />

from the city council by reducing<br />

its fees and sharing building<br />

plans. A condition could be that,<br />

if it is rented, the rent would be<br />

capped. This would be good for<br />

the city council, as the affordable<br />

housing shortage in the city<br />

would lessen.<br />

4. The establishment of a<br />

smaller dwelling construction<br />

company working with the city<br />

council would be economical as<br />

a business.<br />

5. Why does an engineer and<br />

a building inspector have to<br />

inspect foundations at the same<br />

time at twice the cost? If a foundation<br />

for the worst section on<br />

TC3 land is designed, then do we<br />

need foundations’ designed for<br />

every plan? Let’s make smaller<br />

housing simple and affordable to<br />

build.<br />

A reader responds to the<br />

article about the closure<br />

of the New Brighton<br />

Beachside Playground due<br />

to an upgrade over the<br />

school holidays<br />

Gary<br />

Knight – In<br />

spite of possible<br />

opposition to the<br />

closure during<br />

a school holiday<br />

period, it is a<br />

positive and<br />

pro-active move.<br />

Development<br />

Christchurch<br />

Ltd’s upgrades to this venue,<br />

including mini tramps, spinning<br />

toys, seating and wind buffers,<br />

if completed by the second week<br />

modern facility for the benefit of<br />

many in the summer months.<br />

A reader responds to the<br />

article about the cleaning<br />

regime at New Brighton<br />

Pier<br />

UNPOPULAR:<br />

The behaviour of<br />

some anglers on<br />

New Brighton Pier<br />

continues to cause<br />

issues. ​<br />

Caron O’Connor – I don’t<br />

like people fishing on the pier at<br />

New Brighton as they take over<br />

the whole end bit (even though<br />

there’s markings on the concrete<br />

telling them to keep clear for<br />

sightseers). So based<br />

on this, I feel they<br />

have a lack of respect<br />

for others and need to<br />

be banned from the<br />

pier.<br />

I don’t fish and<br />

find the atmosphere,<br />

the smell, even<br />

the rough attitude<br />

of the fishermen<br />

horrible. When I<br />

walk on the pier, my goal is to<br />

enjoy the pleasant atmosphere<br />

and reach the end of the pier<br />

and look out to sea. But it is<br />

dominated by uncouth fishing<br />

people, and yes it does make me<br />

mad, because why should they<br />

take-over the pier when it is for<br />

the public? They seem to think it<br />

is theirs.<br />

That’s my impression, for what<br />

it’s worth.<br />

Plan for red zone close to release<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

THE DRAFT plan for the future<br />

of the red zone is expected to be<br />

made public before the end of<br />

the year.<br />

In its quarterly report, Regenerate<br />

Christchurch revealed the<br />

draft Otakaro Avon River Corridor<br />

Regeneration Plan would be<br />

made public by late-December.<br />

“Regenerate Christchurch advises<br />

the draft Regeneration Plan<br />

is forecast to be publicly notified<br />

between mid-November and<br />

late-December,” the report said.<br />

Once released and public feedback<br />

gathered, the draft plan will<br />

then be approved by Minister for<br />

Greater Christchurch Regeneration<br />

Megan Woods before it is<br />

finalised.<br />

It comes after The Star<br />

revealed Regenerate had spent<br />

nearly $500,000 on the exhibition<br />

used to gather public<br />

feedback which will develop the<br />

draft plan.<br />

“There are always costs involved<br />

with public engagement<br />

but, given the scale and longterm<br />

significance of our work,<br />

we believe this investment is<br />

important to ensure our work is<br />

informed by the views and aspirations<br />

of the community,” chief<br />

executive Ivan Iafeta said.<br />

He said the five-week<br />

exhibition and engagement was<br />

one of the “most significant”<br />

public engagements since the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

The money was spent on interactive<br />

displays, the design and<br />

printing of the panels, lease and<br />

fit-out of the exhibition space<br />

in Cashel St, an online version<br />

of the exhibition, the travelling<br />

exhibition, printing and advertising,<br />

project management, and<br />

ambassadors.<br />

It is estimated developing the<br />

red zone would cost $800 million<br />

over 30 years.<br />

That includes $153 million for<br />

the 11km green spine, which<br />

emerged as the favourite option<br />

from the exhibition. The red<br />

zone is expected to bring billions<br />

of dollars in to the economy.<br />

REVEAL: Regenerate Christchuch’s draft plan for the future<br />

of the red zone will be released in November or December.<br />

display the chance to win two<br />

ECan in bid to recover yacht removal costs<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

IT TOOK five hours and $5000<br />

to remove a yacht stranded on<br />

New Brighton beach.<br />

At 3am on Wednesday, Environment<br />

Canterbury, city council<br />

and a team from Protranz<br />

Earthmoving Ltd began dismantling<br />

the yacht.<br />

The yacht ran aground on<br />

September 12, when it’s former<br />

owner Sean Grant jumped overboard,<br />

after it is believed he ran<br />

out of fuel.<br />

The job, which was done early<br />

due to tide conditions and fewer<br />

people being on the beach, took<br />

five hours to complete.<br />

ECan zone manager Christchurch<br />

West Melton Banks Peninsula<br />

Steve Firth said the removal<br />

came after several attempts to<br />

have the owner of the yacht arrange<br />

its removal, which didn’t<br />

happen.<br />

Previously, Mr Grant attempted<br />

to sell the yacht ‘as is, where is’<br />

on Facebook Marketplace with<br />

an asking price of $1.<br />

It is not clear who the new<br />

owner is.<br />

Said Mr Firth: “The owner attempted<br />

to sell the yacht, which<br />

led to confusion as to who the<br />

legal owner was with a few people<br />

all claiming to own it. It was<br />

important to clarify who legally<br />

owned it, as the removal of the<br />

boat and associated cost, which is<br />

about $5000, is the responsibility<br />

of the boat owner.”<br />

ECan has paid for the cost of<br />

the removal and are in discussions<br />

with the owner over this.<br />

Delaying the removal was no<br />

longer an option, said Mr Firth,<br />

as it was a health and safety<br />

risk to the public and had the<br />

potential to result in adverse<br />

environmental effects.<br />

“We were conscious that if it<br />

GONE: The yacht<br />

which Sean<br />

Grant (inset) ran<br />

aground on New<br />

Brighton beach<br />

was dismantled<br />

last Wednesday.<br />

stayed there any longer it might<br />

break up, which is potentially<br />

hazardous for anyone on the<br />

beach,” said Mr Firth.<br />

The yacht was then taken<br />

to Kate Valley to be disposed<br />

of.<br />

Interim operations manager at<br />

Protranz Earthmoving Brendan<br />

Webber said about eight staff<br />

were needed to pull apart the<br />

yacht.<br />

pupil wanted to paint some masterpieces<br />

of her own.<br />

From now until Sunday –<br />

along with Labour Day weekend<br />

– anyone can go into the space<br />

and pick up a paintbrush to help<br />

create a massive piece of public<br />

art on the Art Gallery’s walls.<br />

Titled Wall to Wall, the event<br />

presents the opportunity to be<br />

involved in a “colossal public<br />

paint-out” of one of the downstairs<br />

galleries.<br />

“This is where the art starts,”<br />

acting Art Gallery director Amy<br />

Harrington said.<br />

Ms Harrington said the next<br />

famous work that would be<br />

hanging in the art gallery in 20<br />

years could be done by some of<br />

the young artists decorating the<br />

walls today.<br />

The art gallery was painting<br />

over the four walls every day to<br />

make space for new creations.<br />

“So everyone gets their chance<br />

to paint,” she said.<br />

The space was proving so<br />

popular, Ms Harrington said<br />

there are lines out the door most<br />

mornings.<br />

The exhibition is open from<br />

11am to 4pm every day.<br />

“We are encouraging everyone<br />

to grab a brush and bring your<br />

perspective to this special art<br />

space,” Ms Harrington said.<br />

“We aim to create an immersive<br />

gallery where everyone – no<br />

matter your age – can take a collaborative<br />

approach to art.”<br />

The work comes in conjunction<br />

with the opening of SCAPE<br />

Public Art’s 20th anniversary<br />

season, which opened on Friday<br />

a quote to have their trees tidied.<br />

“It means it doesn’t come out of<br />

Now<br />

Age is no barrier to city cycling<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

EACH DAY in Christchurch<br />

thousands of people use bicycles<br />

for their commute, for fitness,<br />

or just for fun. An increasing<br />

number of those people are of<br />

advancing years.<br />

St Albans retiree Jean Bell<br />

returned to cycling last year after<br />

a long period without a bike. “I<br />

was encouraged to try an e-bike,<br />

and I was soon hooked on it,”<br />

she said.<br />

“It’s just so handy,” Jean explained.<br />

“I’m surprised by how far I can<br />

cycle when in the car the same<br />

distance feels like a long way.’’<br />

Visiting friends, attending<br />

meetings, hairdresser and doctor<br />

appointments – Jean travels to<br />

them all by bike.<br />

“It’s much easier to park my<br />

bike than park the car,” she said.<br />

“Now, driving with just one<br />

person in my car feels decadent;<br />

a bit naughty.”<br />

The city’s geography<br />

lends itself to getting around by<br />

bike.<br />

“Unlike Wellington or Auckland,<br />

in Christchurch you have<br />

a choice – cycle on the flat or<br />

test yourself on the Port Hills,”<br />

explains Julie Milne, who recently<br />

cycled the length of New<br />

Zealand to raise awareness of<br />

stroke sufferers.<br />

Julie rides to work year-round<br />

on her modified bicycle; two<br />

childhood strokes left her with<br />

restricted arm movement.<br />

“Cycling is my physical upkeep,”<br />

she said.<br />

“It improves my quality of getting<br />

older. If I don’t bike, I seize<br />

up, which then means I can’t<br />

bike. So, I keep biking.”<br />

Julie will be sharing her experiences<br />

at the NZ Bike Expo<br />

(Saturday and Sunday).<br />

This cornerstone event of<br />

the Biketober festival is where<br />

cyclists of all ages can gather to<br />

celebrate the cycle.<br />

“The expo brings the cycling<br />

industry and the Christchurch<br />

community together,” said event<br />

organiser Krissy O’Connor.<br />

“It places cycling events, test<br />

rides, and community groups<br />

alongside commercial exhibitors.<br />

It’s a very hands-on weekend of<br />

everything bike-related.”<br />

For Christchurch residents<br />

who perhaps haven’t explored<br />

much of the new-look central<br />

city, Saturday’s Pedal into Spring<br />

extravaganza of Biketober offers<br />

twelve themed, self-guided rides<br />

to choose from. Cafés, shops,<br />

playgrounds, art, a family treasure<br />

hunt – there’s a route for all ages.<br />

“If you haven’t been on a bike<br />

for a while,” says Julie Milne,<br />

“start on a cycleway and go from<br />

there. You’re safe. Cycling is<br />

lovely.”<br />

Young footballers reach<br />

tournament semi-final<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

THE COASTAL Spirit 11th<br />

grade football team finished<br />

third at their South Island<br />

tournament in Nelson last week.<br />

The team won six games, drew<br />

one and lost one during their<br />

campaign.<br />

They drew against eventual<br />

winners Nelson White 1-1 in<br />

pool-play before losing 1-0 to<br />

Nomads in the semi-final thanks<br />

to a penalty.<br />

The team scored 28 goals and<br />

conceded just five in pool-play.<br />

Coach Alistair Sim said the<br />

team played to their strengths.<br />

“We aren’t a big team so we<br />

had to rely on our accurate<br />

passing and technical skill on<br />

the ball,” he said.<br />

“We tried not to concede<br />

corners and stay away from that<br />

physical style of game.<br />

“Defensively, I was really<br />

happy with how the team<br />

went as we had to keep our<br />

composure, particularly in the<br />

play-off games.”<br />

Sim said many of the team<br />

have played together for the past<br />

two seasons and previously won<br />

the International Cup together.<br />

“That familiarity helped get<br />

the team on track,” he said.<br />

“We had expectations of<br />

finishing near the pointy-end of<br />

the 24-team tournament, and<br />

perhaps if things had gone our<br />

way we would have won.”<br />

Sim said the aim was to give<br />

the players the best possible<br />

pathway to play mainland<br />

premier league football in the<br />

coming years.<br />

“They’re a very talented bunch<br />

of boys so if we can bring them<br />

through the club, we should have<br />

some good first team players in<br />

the coming years.”<br />

Isaac’s Story<br />

With a Masters in Geology and 10 years experience<br />

working in the mining industry, Isaac re-assessed his<br />

career goals, wanting a career that was more flexible<br />

and portable.<br />

“I saw the SHIFT programme as an exciting opportunity<br />

to add specific tech skills to my knowledge base, so<br />

I can translate those skills into a new career.” For his<br />

industry project, Isaac worked with Stantec NZ to<br />

represent aerial drone footage.<br />

“The school-friendly course hours allowed me to<br />

carry on with my before and after school duties and<br />

this has really helped my family and career. I now<br />

have a fantastic role with fast growing tech company<br />

Seequent.”<br />

Jessica’s Story<br />

Jessica is a qualified and experienced radiation<br />

therapist who is changing direction into tech because<br />

of the increasing connection between medicine and<br />

technology. SHIFT is adding tech to Jessica’s existing<br />

clinical experience, while working with real clients from<br />

Dunedin’s tech sector.<br />

Jessica’s first group project involved working with Kylie<br />

Robinson and the team from Igtimi, and her latest<br />

group project has been developing an app for Otago<br />

Museum. “The project work has really extended my<br />

knowledge into areas I would never have considered<br />

working in just a few months ago, but now I feel like<br />

I can tackle diverse problems and definitely create<br />

solutions. It has been challenging but very rewarding!”
