ST BEDE’S College’s Casper

McCormick (above) claimed

the under-18 longboard title for

a second year running to help

Canterbury create history by

winning the national scholastic

surfing championships in

Gisborne.

It was the first time Canterbury

or a South Island team had

won the event which celebrated

its 30th year.

McCormick defended his title

with a stylish approach netting

him a 13.2 point total well clear

of his opponents Joel McMullen

(Auckland), Ben Counsell

(Auckland) and Billy Whelan

(Northland) who finished second

through fourth respectively.

event.

McCormick’s performance

helped Canterbury take a solid

lead that they never let go.

Shirley Boys’ High’s Myka

Black claimed the Adam Clegg

breakthrough performance

award which came on the back

of form throughout the event

until he came unstuck in the

semi-finals finishing fifth overall

in the under-16 division.

THE PAPANUI-INNES Community

Board needs to come clean and tell the

public what’s going on inside their board.

We report on page 1 today how an independent

facilitator – that’s a fancy term

for a referee – needed to be called into help

resolve problems within the board.

The board, chaired by public relations consultant Ali Jones, is

refusing to say what the specific issues are.

But clearly there’s a clash between outspoken board member

John Stringer and Jones. We hear board members don’t

like Stringer talking to the media – particularly about the

controversial Main North Rd bus lane issue.

So I’m going to give the board some good PR advice: Tell your

constituents what’s going on.

There’s an election next year.

Battle against buses on quiet streets

• By Ashleigh Monk

MAIREHAU RESIDENTS are

waiting to hear whether buses

will be re-routed through their

quiet streets.

Environment Canterbury

received 133 submissions on a

proposal that would see No 44

bus redirected to and from Innes

Rd via Philpotts Rd, Glenfield

Cres, Roslyn Ave, Croziers Rd,

Ranger St and Nancy Ave.

The project would coincide

with the Northern Corridor

opening, which would stop right

turns by the Orbiter bus in and

out of the QE II Dr end of Philpotts

Rd.

ECan is in the process of

reviewing the submissions

before they could report back to

submitters.

The proposed re-route came

after a group of 80 retirees

presented a petition to ECan

pleading with it to reconsider

route changes to the Orbiter

which would see the nearest bus

stop be moved almost 1km away

from the Diana Isaac Retirement

Village.

Nancy Ave resident Resch

Fowler said she hoped a “middle

ground” could be established

as the buses would disrupt the

“quiet” side streets.

WAITING GAME: Mairehau residents are waiting to hear back from Environment Canterbury

about a proposed bus re-route that could send buses down their quiet streets.

“There was a whole range of

options put forward by

the community, including

turning bays on Philpotts Rd,”

she said.

“The ideal outcome would

be the turning bay because

that enables residents at the

retirement village to still have

access to that bus. It’s certainly

not about taking away that

service from others in the

community who need it, but

finding something that works for

everyone.”

She said she had attended

neighbourhood meetings with

residents of the retirement village

to discuss the issue.

“I think for the retirement

OPTION ONE

home they would like the Orbiter

to remain, but obviously that’s

not going to happen. But I

understand that two or three

blocks is a long way to travel for

them to get to a bus stop, so I

really think the turning bay and

shifting the stops will help them

without having a big impact on

us.”

PARKING RESTRICTIONS

The Papanui-Innes

Community Board approved

parking restrictions on a street

outside Mairehau Primary

School. Representatives of the

school recently approached

city council with the request

to look into the congestion

issues being experienced on

Mahars Rd during school

drop-off and pick-up times.

The proposal would see six

parking spaces on Mahars Rd

removed, and signs indicating

a time limit of 3min between

the hours of 8.15am to 9.15am

and 2.30pm to 3.30pm on

school days.

consent is still being processed

by the city council. The

Stringer and

to clash

•From page 1

Mr Stringer has been outspoken

about decisions made by

the board over the Main North

Rd bus priority project.

Ms Jones’ comment

prompted an angry response

from Mr Stringer, who claimed

confidentiality had been

breached.

“We all strictly agreed

together as colleagues there

would be no comment about

the meeting or what was said,”

he said.

“I’m disappointed my

chairwoman appears to have

breached that commitment we

all made.”

Mr Stringer did not return

calls to Nor’West News on

Friday about the presence of an

independent facilitator at the

September 24 meeting.

Said Ms Jones on Friday: “It

was agreed upon by everyone

at that meeting that it would be

held in confidence.

“There’s a lot at play here,

and I don’t like playing games.

Some people do, but I’m not

going to buy into that until this

process has been completed.”

Sore Feet and Kid Athletes

Pushing ourselves to be our best during

practice and our chosen sporting event makes

for some very sore feet. Sever’s disease is a

common heel injury that occurs in kids as a

result of physical activity.

The heels of their feet will most likely

become painful and they will experience pain,

however Sever’s disease is a temporary ailment

with no long-term effects. Papanui Foot Clinic

to the rescue.

The Papanui Foot Clinic are experts in

assisting your child with the resources for a

quick and long-term recovery.

Sever’s disease, known as calcaneal

apophysitis, is a painful bone disorder which

is the result of inflammation or the swelling of

the growth plate in a child’s heel. It is the most

common cause of heel pain in growing children,

especially those who are physically active.

Such stress commonly results from physical

activities, specifically sports that involve

running and jumping. Especially those that

take place on hard surfaces, such as track,

basketball, soccer, and gymnastics.

Poor-fitting shoes can contribute to the

condition by not providing enough support or

padding for the feet or by rubbing against the

back of the heel.

It usually occurs during the growth spurt of

adolescence, any time between the ages of 8

and 13 for both boys and girls.

The most obvious sign of Sever’s disease

is pain or tenderness in one or both heels,

usually at the back. The pain also might

extend to the sides and bottom of the heel,

ending near the arch of the foot.

Ian Graham is a well known expert in this

field and The Papanui Foot Clinic is your first

call for relief.

St Albans residents feel their

Residents in St Albans

are worried that the

suburb is disappearing

and being taken over

by Edgeware and

Mairehau. Ashleigh

Monk reports

ST ALBANS residents feel their

identity is disappearing.

Due to the introduction of

post codes and business naming

changes, the suburb is being

taken over by others such as

Edgeware and Mairehau – and

residents want it to stop.

St Albans Residents’

Association co-chairwoman

Emma Twaddell said the

suburb’s identity started slipping

away in 2006 after New Zealand

Post brought in post codes.

“They made up the names

of the post codes without any

involvement from people . . . the

numbers don’t line up at all. Half

of St Albans is called Mairehau

and the heart of St Albans,

Edgeware Village, is now called

Edgeware,” she said.

“It’s just due to the fact that

corporates are lazy and have got

no respect for communities.”

She said it was important for

people living in the area to feel

like part of the community, but it

was hard when the lines between

suburbs were blurred.

“It seems like it’s not a big

issue, but if you understand

community development, then

you understand the issues that

these things cause for people,

because they don’t attach

themselves to an area.”

Ms Twaddell said she had

approached NZ Post about

the issue, but was told it was a

matter for the city council.

“It’s really about the city

council working with NZ Post

and Land Information New

Zealand to get rid of the post

code names. That’s all they have

to do and it will be solved,” she

said.

“I just think that this is where

the authorities let themselves

down, they’re not respecting

the people of the city that

they’re actually supposed to be

looking after. They don’t think

these things are important, but

for building communities and

building community spirit it has

got huge consequences.”

Ma Baker bakery owner Paul

Garven said he had always

know his shop to be a part of

Edgeware, and even the mailing

address was listed as Edgeware.

“That’s news to me, I’ve

learned something today . . .

I don’t actually think I knew

where the hub of St Albans was,”

he said.

“We’ve only had the business

here for about six years. The

bakery that was here before was

KB’s and that was always just

known as KB’s Edgeware, and

that was since about 30 years

ago.”

St Albans Pharmacy owner

Malcolm Pearce said he thought

there was definitely a “blurring

of lines” between Edgeware and

St Albans.

“I suppose in my mind

Edgeware has always just been a

sub-set of St Albans,” he said.

Four schools also fell within

the zone for St Albans kids –

St Albans School, St Albans

Catholic School, St Francis of

Fire rages, homes at risk

identity is disappearing

“Over the years I would have

thought it was Mairehau struggling

to retain its independence.

From my observations in my

time there, real estate agents

often list houses in our area as St

Albans or Shirley,” he said.

A NZ Post spokesperson said

post codes were not linked to

suburb boundaries.

“Post code boundaries are

maintained by New Zealand Post

and are used to ensure efficient

sorting of mail,” they said.

“There is no relationship

between an allocated post code

and a suburb name. Post codes

are used by New Zealand Post

for mail delivery purposes and

are not mutually exclusive to a

suburb. One post code can cross

many suburbs.”

A city council spokeswoman

said it did not have any say in

altering suburb names.

Land Information New

Zealand listed St Albans as a

suburb – making it one of the

few suburbs in the city that were

officially gazetted.

“The New Zealand Geographical

Board processed a proposal

in 2010, resulting in this suburb

name becoming official in 2011,”

a LINZ spokeswoman said.

Edgeware Business Association

spokesperson and Fresh-

Choice Edgeware owner Stephen

Anderson said that while the

village was in the “heart of St

Albans”, most people referred to

it as Edgeware.

“Whether it’s deliberate or by

accident, I’m not sure, but I do

think St Albans is disappearing,”

he said.

HUB: Ma

Baker

bakery

owner Paul

Garven said

he had no

idea his

shop was

a part of

St Albans

as his mail

always

had an

Edgeware

post code

attached.

“We have a very unique community

in St Albans. It’s one of

those few suburbs that are left in

Christchurch where we haven’t

got big malls, so it has a nice

feel. I think with the Edgeware

Village atmosphere it gets a bit

blurred.”

He said the plans to upgrade

Cranford St by putting in clearways

and redirecting

traffic would further “destroy”

the area.

“If the plan goes through,

it’s going to split St Albans in

half. It’s basically like putting

what is essentially a motorway

through the middle of St Albans.

It will become a real divide for

us.”

FAST FACTS

•St Albans became a

suburb of Christchurch

in 1903 after being its

own borough since 1881.

•St Albans was named

after resident George

Dickinson’s farm. He had

called his farm St Albans

in memory of his cousin

Harriet Mellon, a British

actress who had become

the Duchess of St Albans

after marrying William

Beauclerk, the ninth Duke

of St Albans.

•The area currently has a

population of 7810.

•The St Albans boundaries

are Mays Rd in the north,

Hills Rd in the east, Bealey

Ave to the south, and

Rossall St to the west.

•Recently a time capsule

was discovered in St

Albans which was buried

under the original library

in 1920. The time capsule

contained copies of

The Press and Lyttelton

Times newspapers, and

a message in an old beer

bottle which detailed the

history of the library and

listed the names of notable

people of the St Albans

area.

THE PHRASE ‘it takes a village

to raise a child’ is one that we

have all heard, but how often

do we ask ourselves ‘what does

it take to create the village that

is needed to raise a child?’ and

‘what is my part in that village?’

In Shirley, people from community

organisations, NGO’s,

agencies and some residents have

all come together to create the

Shirley Village Project because

they believe the answer to those

questions lie within the neighbourhood.

The Shirley Village Project has

a shared vision of Shirley as a

caring, colourful and connected

community where people’s needs

are met.

The organisations realise they

only make up part of what is

needed to create solutions.

Shirley residents’ knowledge

and involvement are also needed

to achieve solutions to the issues

that are important to residents

and organisations.

Together they can develop local

solutions to local problems.

already started several initiatives.

Project worked

together with

members of the

community to

provide firewood to

families who have

cold homes.

families who had cold homes,

and organisations and community

groups are supporting local

young people to get employment

by providing skills training and

support to get driver licences.

During October, the Shirley

Village Project is inviting residents

to contribute by completing

a survey on the things that

are important to them in their

neighbourhood.

These are the things that

residents and organisations will

work on together during 2019 to

bring about change.

The survey is available through

the Shirley community groups

and organisations, the Shirley

public library, at local health

providers, hairdressers, and early

childhood centres.

Readers react to a report

of a dangerous pedestrian

crossing on Innes Rd

Andrew Johnson – One of

those 40km/h areas might help,

although I’m constantly amazed

at how many drivers ignore those

flashing signs.

Marianne McKinney

Zonneveld – Here in Australia

drivers stop when they see

pedestrians walking towards

a crossing. Drivers need to be

reeducated and stop this mad

need for speed. It is all a matter

of respect for others. Sadly

lacking.

Readers react to the oak

trees causing trouble for a

Harewood couple

Gary Knight – Surely the issue

of oak trees eroding sunlight

to Harewood residents Graeme

and Diane Barber’s property

is easily rectified devoid of the

necessity for any city council

bureaucracy. The demarcation

criteria of whether the six 16m

oak trees are classified as reserve

or street status can be directed

back to their origin. Originally

planted in the Pasadena Reserve

makes them surely reserve classified

and a council responsibility

for their removal. The proposed

road having never been actioned

further enforces the status thus

relying on the good faith of the

city council to remove the oaks

and allow a return of unimpeded

sunlight to Graeme and Diane in

their urban space.

Readers react to a new

Pak’nSave being proposed

for Papanui

Jan Driscoll – That will be fun

for shoppers, that intersection is

nuts, trying to get in and out of

the supermarket is fraught with

danger and with the bus priority

lanes coming in along the road

oh boy. Think they should have

an ambulance station there too,

quick response for the mayhem.

Just joking, but seriously. I can see

why they want to build there as

the petrol pumps will be a bonus

but ease of access won’t be.

Kaci Lane – Why the hell

are people mad about this? This

is growth, this is a good thing.

This isn’t costing the taxpayer

a cent so the cost of this really

doesn’t matter to any of you.

Christchurch is a growing

city. Christchurch is expanding

big and fast. This is good, not

bad. Why do people always have

to be negative and point out the

bad rather than focusing on the

positive?

Tania Goodman – What a

waste of money, what is wrong

with the Pak’nSave now? You

have Pak’nSave and Countdown

at Northlands two minutes up

the road.

Ashley Crook – Why not a

New World? Papanui already has

a Pak’nSave.

Raelene Candy – Even

though its closer to me it seems

a bit ridiculous with one just up

the road a bit.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Long ride for Redwood cancer survivor

• By Ashleigh Monk

WHEN REDWOOD’S Chris

Jones embarked on a cycling

journey to Auckland he knew it

would be hard – but not as hard

as living with prostate cancer.

The 66-year-old cycled 1500km

from Christchurch to Auckland

to raise money and awareness for

the disease which he has battled

himself.

“I’m one of the fortunate guys

who can get out and ride his bike.

Some men, sadly, are not here,

some others with prostate cancer

find riding a bike too uncomfortable.”

Mr Jones wanted to encourage

men to see the doctor when

something was wrong.

“Sometimes blokes, if I can be

blunt, need to be passing blood

before they actually see a doctor.

They think it’s going to get better

and it doesn’t,” he said.

“A lot of men spend a lot of

time and money on their motor

cars. They think nothing of taking

the car in for a check-up or

warrant of fitness, but they never

Auckland.

take themselves in for a check up

or full medical . . . and the family

would much rather have dad

around than a nice, shiny car in

a garage.”

Through his Facebook page,

Mr Jones honours one man each

day who has died from prostate

cancer.

He said he met with the families

of some of the victims during

his journey.

“It was great to meet all these

people, I made a lot of connections.

They were so supportive of

me, I even had a few young boys

make a sign to welcome me on

one leg of the trip.”

Mr Jones said he aimed to

cover about 100km a day, but

each day brought on a new set of

challenges.

“On the third day, I had a

strong head-wind and rain for

130km. It made the nice days

seem really great,” he said.

“I budgeted on about 100km

a day but, of course, you have to

vary it according to where your

accommodation is and things

like that. The shortest day was

about 35km and the longest day

was 212km.”

Mr Jones almost doubled his

fundraising goal of $5000, raising

more tan $9000 by the time he

finished his trip.

Top young piper follows in father’s footsteps

• By Ashleigh Monk

A YOUNG bagpiper following in

his father’s footsteps has earned

the first ever national young piper

of the year award.

Year 11 St Andrew’s College

student Campbell Wilson was

“stoked” to have won the title,

which he earned after taking

part in the young piper of the

year solo piping competition in

Nelson.

“It still feels petty surreal, I

feel pretty good to have achieved

this,” the 16-year-old said.

“It came about because earlier

in the year there was a young

drummer of the year competition,

and so it was only suitable

to have a Young Piper of the Year

competition as well.”

Along with the title, Campbell

took away $1000 in prize money.

Inspired by his dad Greg’s talent

for the instrument, Campbell

started learning to play the bagpipes

about six years ago.

“My dad plays, and he’s my

teacher as well. He’s a world-class

piper.”

“I’d really love to follow in my

father’s footsteps. He competed in

Scotland quite frequently when

he was in his 20s. I went to Scotland

this year and competed in

the World Pipe Band Championships,

where we got second place.”

Campbell played in the St Andrew’s

College pipe band, which

he had been a part of for about

three years.

“It’s great to be part of an

SCHOOLS

amazing band full of young players

who are the future of piping

in New Zealand.”

Campbell said he had placed in

a few under-21 competitions in

the past and had just been promoted

to the top level of piping in

his age group.

“I was just promoted to A

grade, the premier piping grade,

in July, which was pretty exciting,”

he said.

“I’ve got a competition over

Labour Weekend at St Andrew’s

College, and that will be where

I’m competing at A grade for the

first time. I’m a little bit nervous,

but pretty excited.”

TALENT: Young Piper of the

Year Campbell Wilson playing

his bagpipes at a competition

in Scotland.

WINNER: Campbell Wilson won the first ever Young Piper of the Year award at a competition in

Nelson.

SUCCESS: Cathedral

Grammar has won the

National Junior Theatre

RoboCup Championship.

The boys, Rian, Sam,

Cameron and Conor, who

range from year 4 to year 8

recently competed in the

championships in Dunedin.

The win was a first for

the school’s innovative

and successful Robotics

Club, which encompasses

engineering and IT skills,

and extends across the

school curriculum.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Anxiety and breathing

– are they related?

When good breathing goes bad

Have you experienced any of these

breathing difficulty symptoms?

• Disturbed sleep

• Erratic heartbeats*

• Feeling anxious and uptight

• Upset gut/nausea

• Chest pains*

• Shattered confidence

• Tired all the time

• Achy muscles and joints

• Dizzy spells* or feeling spaced out

• Irritability or hypervigilance

• Frequent yawning and sighing

• Breathing discomfort*

• Pins and needles

• Feelings of ‘air hunger’

*Check with your doctor if you experience

these symptoms.

These questions are asked on

the website www.BradCliff.com.

BradCliff was started by North Island

physiotherapists Dinah Bradley and

Tania Cliffton Smith, who specialise in

hyperventilation and anxiety treatment.

Their website notes one in 10 people

experience some form of breathing pattern

disorder or chronic over breathing at some

time in their lives, resulting in a range

of disturbing or frightening symptoms

puzzling to you and your doctor.

You feel unwell because of overbreathing,

and overbreathing makes you feel unwell.

A vicious cycle is established, which is a

major stress all by itself. This is experienced

currently by many Cantabrians, says Ietje

van Stolk of Physical Sense Gym & Physio.

As she explains, it is normal to breathe fast

and in the upper chest when we are in danger

and fight or flight is needed. We know all

about that here, due to the earthquakes.

Normally, once the danger is gone, our

breathing should restore itself within a

couple of days. We would then be using the

diaphragm for our normal nonstressed

breathing. We have been having a hard

time restoring our breathing pattern

here in Canterbury because every time

our body tried to achieve that, the next

aftershock came rolling in. Even though the

aftershocks have significantly diminished,

some people’s fight or flight mode

breathing has become chronic, or habitual,

Ietje says. And, as she points out, using the

wrong muscles for breathing means these

overworked muscles cause headaches, neck

pain and jaw pain.

With fast upper chest breathing, sighing

and yawning, the resulting disturbance

of our oxygen and carbon dioxide levels

can give us the feeling we are not able to

control our own body. One moment you

are feeling fine, next moment your chest

feels tight, you feel out of breath, your

heart beats erratically and you may even

experience dizziness and/or tingling.

Very scary if you do not understand what

is happening. No wonder this causes

anxiety. Not being the boss over our own

body makes us anxious, anxiety feeds the

faulty breathing pattern, and so it goes on.

The BradCliff physiotherapists have

established a national network of

practitioners that regularly train together

and can help you overcome this problem.

Physical Sense is part of that network.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Centuries old folk

remedy supports

good health!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array of powerful health

benefits. It is none other than the popular apple cider vinegar or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the

“Father of Medicine” – ACV has been

renowned for its curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS and

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis

reports how he found that Vermonters

who regularly consumed ACV and Honey

had excellent health with many putting in

a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties. He also noted

the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting

almost total relief after taking a course

of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar

counteracted calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use. He also noted

that Vermonters who consumed ACV and

H around meal time had excellent blood

pressure and circulation. The reason he

found was that protein foods thickened the

blood and vinegar thinned it. As the blood

thickens it cannot pass as easily and quickly

through the blood vessels and capillaries.

This poor blood flow would reduce cellular

health by limiting nutrients to the cells as

well as waste elimination from the cells.

To prevent cell damage the body naturally

increases blood pressure but this puts

more stress on the blood vessels, organs

and heart. Having ACV and H with meals

will help prevent protein raising the blood

pressure. It also contributes to a feeling

of greater well-being because the thinner

blood circulates quickly and more easily

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found

regular consumption of CV and H to be

an excellent health tonic with numerous

health attributes.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all

the goodness of the apple in a form that is

readily accepted by the body. Good health

starts with good digestion and assimilation

of nutrients. ACV taken before food will

stimulate and promote healthy digestion

and assimilation of vital nutrients for good

health. A well-functioning digestive system

helps prevent disease by neutralising any

toxic substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is

produced in the traditional way and results

are likely to prove disappointing with these

other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV and ACV

with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in

Canterbury from Organic whole apples in

the traditional way. It is double strength so

you can use less.

Dilo Oil – The Remarkable

Skin Rejuvenator

Until Rachel

Hunter’s popular

TV series “TOUR OF

BEAUTY” Dilo Oil was

relatively unknown being

one of the best-kept secrets of

the Pacific Islands. It may however

be the number one natural beauty oil

available as it possesses powerful natural

skin regeneration, anti-aging and healing

properties.

According to ethnobotanist Chris

Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-low)

Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as

it is one of the most effective agents

in promoting the regeneration and

formation of new tissue, thereby

LOCATION

95

gasson st

Long-established car light specialists,

Braxton Car Lights, are now shining their

lights from a sparkling new address – just

around the corner from their familiar

Brougham Street site.

Just prior to Christmas, the business

moved from 325 Brougham Street to 95

Gasson St, where they offer a brighter

showroom, easier access for their customers

and plenty of off-street parking.

“We’re all set up in our new premises,”

sales manager Richard Vernimmen says,

“and continuing to provide our customers

with an extensive range of replacement

lights for most Japanese, European and

New Zealand-made vehicles. We can cover

most vehicles on the road, and all our lights

are fully checked and in perfect working

order.”

If they don’t have it in stock, they can

source it from one of the other branches in

the nationwide BE Group, Richard says. BE

is one of New Zealand’s largest importers of

car, truck and commercial parts.

Braxton Car Lights also offers a repair

service for headlights, with their skilled

staff of three having 80 years’ experience

in the automotive trade between them.

They also specialise in light adjuster and

light conversion of American

car lights and their repair

service includes plastic

welding, drying out, and

re-silvering, re-sealing

and lens refurbishment.

Their services can also

be arranged through

your own local garage or

workshop.

So, next time you need

replacement car lights, call

into Braxton Car Lights’ bright new

showroom, 95 Gasson St, phone 0800 225
