NORTH NEW Brighton’s

Thomson Park will get a $400,000

upgrade.

But the plans approved by the

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board do not include security

cameras, which has left Erica

Godfrey unimpressed.

The South New Brighton

woman was punched in the face

at the park six months ago, after

confronting a youth who attacked

her autistic son.

Since then, Mrs Godfrey has

been campaigning for security

cameras to be installed at the

park.

After being punched, the

youth told Mrs Godfrey:

“There’s no cameras, you’ve got no

proof.”

The upgrade to Thomson Park

includes a new full basketball

court and picnic area, along with

a sealed car park.

Community board chairwoman

Kim Money said alternative steps

had been made to increase the

level of security at the park.

Grant Cowan (see page 13).

Life has dealt him a terrible blow; two

strokes at a still relatively young age.

Now his mates have rallied to raise funds

for a special bike for this once very good sportsman.

I can vouch for Grant. My contact with him was in our

basketball team, many years ago now, but I can still see him as an

imposing figure under the basket. He was also a top bloke.

Grant was also a top martial arts exponent, went onto cycling

and as mentioned a natural basketballer.

His fundraiser is a worthy cause.

New method to beat midges

A NEW WAY of controlling the

plague of midges at the Bromley

oxidation ponds will be trialled

over the coming months.

The city council will be

disturbing the bottom of the

ponds where the midge lay

their larvae by mechanically

dragging chains across the pond

floor.

The chains will be dragged by

a boat travelling across the ponds

at a steady walking pace.

It is a control method that has

delivered promising results at

the Mangere oxidation ponds

in south Auckland, which has

also historically been plagued by

midge problems.

“At the moment the Bromley

oxidation ponds are the perfect

breeding ground for midges, so

in order to control their numbers,

we need to make the ponds

more inhospitable. We believe

that mechanically disturbing the

floor of the ponds is a quick, costeffective

way we can do that,’’

said city council three waters and

waste operations manager Adam

Twose.

“We will need to use the boat

on the ponds every 10 days for

about five hours. The result from

Mangere suggest that it should

lead to a reduction in the midge

population this summer.’’

SWARM: The midge population plaguing Aranui and Bromley will be controlled by chains which

will be dragged by a boat across the oxidation pond.

Mr Twose said longer term

there are plans to change the

engineering of the ponds so that

the inflow of treated wastewater

can be altered to create a less

hospitable environment for the

midges.

The city council is also doing

more planting around the ponds

to reduce the light from nearby

homes so that midges, which, like

moths, are naturally attracted

to light, are not drawn towards

them.

“It is going to take a while for

the plants to grow up to the point

where they make an effective

screen but in the meantime

we’re hoping we can provide

nearby residents with some

relief from the midges this

summer through the mechanical

disturbance work we’re doing,’’

Mr Twose said.

THE DANGER OF

FEEDING BONES

With the popularity of feeding raw food

diets now, we are seeing on the rise

intestinal damage and blockages due to

dogs eating the wrong sort of bones on a

regular basis. Over the past six months we

are doing exploratory surgeries to remove

bones that have got lodged somewhere in

the gastrointestinal tract almost on a weekly

basis– often we see these patients late Friday

afternoon so they end up being operated on

that night and transferred to the afterhours.

All this costs a lot of money and is stressful

for the owner. I’m not saying all bones are

bad but I think owners have to be aware of

the pitfalls, research carefully the safer bone

options like raw meaty bones and supervise

carefully when there pooch is having a good

old chew.

In some adult dogs with no medical issues,

feeding balanced and complete raw diets

may be okay but we at McMaster & Heap

will never be advocates of feeding most

bones on a regular basis and certainly not to

puppies. Very occasionally feeding a large

RAW meaty cannon bone is great for teeth

cleaning and general enjoyment. I limit Lola

my Labrador to a raw cannon bone twice

a month and it’s binned after one hour of

chewing. Once I forgot to take the bone

away and after three hours she was still

knawing away and the pulp in her upper

canine had bled into the tooth. Luckily it

healed quickly and she didn’t need the tooth

extracting.

The nutritional value of bones is poor and

their complication rate high. Dental disease

is common and we will often see fractured

canines and dying teeth from the pulp of

the tooth getting permanently damaged

from continual chewing on a hard object

for too long. Again supervision is needed.

Gastrointestinal disease, presenting with

vomiting, regurgitation, diarrhoea and

inappetance is commonplace (especially

with the feeding of cooked bones ) as is the

dreaded and expensive to treat “pancreatitis”

patient. Baked or barbequed bones become

hard and brittle causing splintering and

subsequent piercing of the softer tissues.

And then we have the blockages, where

bone is “stuck” and can’t be pushed

along with peristalsis, requiring surgical

intervention – not a cheap option but a

necessary one if we are to save the patients’

life.

Now we come to my beloved “Henry” who

regularly loves to visit me and have some

sort of operation fairly regularly. We have a

close relationship now. In January he was

This is Henry NOT

allowed on the furniture

very sick with pancreatitis and hospitalised

for days, then in August on a Sunday we

surgically removed a foreign body from his

small intestine and very recently he got a

large knuckle bone completely stuck in his

oesophagus requiring emergency surgery.

He usually bounces back quickly from

surgery but this last visit he’s had a few quite

serious complications from eating bones.

The large knuckle was removed through his

pharygnx carefully with the use of forceps.

Due to the oesophageal damage he’s had

difficulty eating and regurgitation issues.

He also had exploratory surgery to remove

many sharp shards of bone from his stomach

that were not able to pass through Henrys

intestine. As a result of the regurgitation due

to the surgery and eating of bones, he now

has aspiration pneumonia which is holding

his usually super recovery back. Henry

has spiking fevers daily, feels listless and is

off his food – a rare event for a Labrador!!

He is currently taking nine medications,

four of which are antibiotics. He’s been a

daily inpatient getting intravenous fluids

to support him as he hasn’t wanted to

drink much. His owners are performing

coupage several times a day to help clear

secretions from the lungs. This is a bit like

physiotherapy on the lungs to dislodge

mucous and fluid pooling in the lungs so

Henry can breathe easier. He coughs up the

secretions in his airways and swallows them.

Suffice to say the latest update from Henry

is great news. He’s back home, eating

much better, off intravenous fluids but still

on a variety of medications. Pneumonia

will probably take three to four weeks

of antibiotic therapy to clear his lungs

completely. Henry was very lucky as his

owners will do anything for him and acted

quickly getting him to us. He’s certainly

worthy though of the love he has from us

all. As you can see from his photo, he’s one

New lease of life for surf club

• By Louis Day

THE SOUTH Brighton Surf

Life Saving Club has made the

first steps towards rebuilding its

clubhouse.

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board has granted

the club a new 33-year lease,

which will allow it to rebuild the

clubhouse.

The building will be

demolished at the end of

summer, and the rebuild is

expected to take 16-18 months.

Club president Rohan

Naughton said the rebuild was

exactly what the club and the

community needed.

“The club is growing, the

junior section in particular

is growing at a great rate, the

rebuild just gives us more room.

The club is also part of the

community and the rebuild will

allow the community to become

part of the club.”

The clubhouse has occupied

the site on the corner of Marine

Pde and Bridge St since its

formation in 1929.

The current building was

built in the 1960s with major

remodelling undertaken in

1982. It sustained damage in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Mr Naughton said the

clubhouse was in desperate need

of a makeover.

“Our major concern was that

it wouldn’t meet earthquake

code going forward. There’s

been a lot of remediation work

done on it, but there’s long-term

structural damage that’s just

going to deteriorate.”

Mr Naughton said the

club could potentially use

sea containers to store their

equipment while the rebuild

is taking place. He said beach

patrols would continue

throughout the process.

Board chairwoman Kim

Money said the rebuild would

benefit the community and the

club. “We were delighted to see

they were going ahead with

putting a new facility in there

in South New Brighton because

it’s a great little community

hub.”

The new building has been

designed to cater for the wider

community and club members.

common ground

funding secured

• By Louis Day

SOUTH NEW Brighton’s

community common ground could

be ready before December now that

funding has been secured.

The Coastal-Burwood Community

Board granted $7680 towards

the common ground, which will

fill the empty site on the corner of

Estuary Rd and Bridge St.

The money will go to Sustain

South Brighton which will run

events and activities at the site.

Sustain South Brighton manager

Jane Harrison was delighted with

the support shown by the board.

“In a community that lost its

block of shops, cafe, takeaway

outlets and community hall after

the earthquakes, having a place to

meet, share food and celebrate is

great.”

Ms Harrison said the money

would go towards running working

bees and workshops to clear

the site. However, not everyone

was pleased to see the project gain

momentum.

South New Brighton Residents’

Association secretary Seamus

O’Cromtha said the common

ground was being used as a distraction

from the real problems in

the area, such as protection from

Airman returns from aid mission

FORMER Southshore man

Dave Natapu has returned from

Indonesia after saving children

and babies from earthquakes and

tsunamis.

The flight lieutenant was recently

deployed to the quake-ravaged

Indonesian city of Palu as

part of the New Zealand Defence

Force’s recent humanitarian aid

mission.

The 7.5 magnitude

quake

struck the Indonesian

island

of Sulawesi and

was followed

by a tsunami

with waves up

Dave Natapu

to 6m high.

The death toll

was reported to reach more than

1400. During his week-long deployment,

Mr Natapu alongside

14 others, transported about 70

tonne of aid and evacuated 160

survivors from Palu.

“I have a five-month-old

daughter myself, so it was tough

to see mothers carrying their babies

or with very young children.

On the other hand, it made me

happy that we could help.”

A highlight for Mr Natapu was

the first NZDF aid flight to Palu

on October 5, which coincided

with the Indonesian National

Armed Forces Day. “The Indonesian

soldiers cheered us as soon

as we arrived. They sang our

national anthem as we unloaded

the aid from the plane and took

our photos.”

Mr Natapu said survivors

who had slept outdoors for days,

queued to get into their Royal

New Zealand Air Force C-130

Hercules aircraft.

“They were so relieved when

they got on our plane. They

erupted in cheers and gave a

thumbs-up sign before we took

off.”

Mr Natapu said the scale of

destruction caused by the earthquake

and tsunami was shocking,

with large parts of Palu’s

airport closed due to the damage.

Mr Natapu worked as a lawyer

for three years, specialising in

banking and commercial law,

before enlisting in the RNZAF in

2011. He has since been deployed

on operations in the Middle East,

Antarctica and the South Pacific.

“It is a very rewarding job,

which, as we have just done in

Indonesia, gives us a lot of opportunity

to do good.”

Red zone roses stand out in Parklands

Fire rages, homes at risk

Parklands’ Joceylin

Ching has been awarded

for her stunning roses

in the spring garden

competition. Ashleigh

Monk talks to her about

what makes a garden

special

AFTER THE earthquakes,

former Dallington resident

Joceylin Ching scoured the red

zone and rescued a number of

rose bushes.

When she moved out of her

Cheam St home to Parklands

after being red-zoned, the

roses flourished and earned

her a certificate of merit in

the Christchurch Beautifying

Association’s spring garden

competition.

“A lot of the roses I picked up

from people who were leaving

the red zone, with permission of

course – I didn’t pinch them,” she

said.

“I went on a rescue mission

. . . it’s great now seeing it all

come together, considering how

sick a lot of the plants were when

I lifted them up.”

She said she had about 110 rose

bushes “squeezed” into her little

section.

“It’s my passion. I love going

out there and tending to my

roses. It’s not hard work for me,

it’s just something I enjoy.”

Mrs Ching said this was the

first time she had entered the

competition.

“I definitely want to enter

again, but I don’t want to get

too obsessed. I don’t want to be

one of those people who don’t

go away on holiday because of

the garden. That’s why I hadn’t

entered before,” she said.

Northwood resident Peter

Lawrence took out the Andrews

Cup. He has competed “just

about every year” since 1974 and

has won the cup numerous times.

This was his first year working on

a smaller section.

“I was actually living next door,

but it was time to down-size so I

wouldn’t have such a big garden.

This is the first year I’ve entered

with this garden,” he said.

“I feel really good to have won.

There were some lovely gardens

Association’s spring garden

out there.”

Christchurch Beautifying

Association president Ron

Andrews said this had been the

best spring awards since before

the earthquakes.

“This competition has been

well-attended over the years,

right up until the earthquake.

We lost a lot of gardens after that,

and it hasn’t been quite the same.

But we’ve had a record year, this

is the first time we’ve exceeded

the 40 or so entries,” he said.

He is encouraging more people

to take part in the awards, even if

they don’t have much gardening

experience.

“A lot of people feel they can’t

compete with some of the top

gardens and of course that is

difficult, but we’re encouraging

people to come along, learn

to build up their competition

gardens, and we’re starting to get

more interest.”

lend a helping hand

On wednesday 10th October we held our second Helping Hands project for

Shirley Primary school.

With the help of Kennard’s Hire (supplied a tipper truck) and

Winstone Aggregates (supplied the sand) we filled the school’s

dodgeball pit. In addition to this the team painted “old school”

yard games on the concrete in their house colours. We also

brightened up the place by painting the poles adjacent to the

classrooms. The games we painted included hopscotch, foursquare,

free-throw for the hoop, a target on the wall for hand

ball, and a 1,2,3 Snake.

On behalf of Shirley Primary School I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you

and your team from Mitre10 Ferrymead for the beautiful bright and creative

artwork you did at our school.

We had a partial rebuild on our site in 2016-17 which meant removing a lot of

existing play area and replacing with asphalt. We have certainly been in need

of some artwork to put some love back into that area! There were lots of excited

children on the first day back and many first time hopscotchers!

We thank you not only for your time and materials but the heart in which you put

into our community.

I had a lovely time meeting you all while you were here and would love to see you

again in the future.

• By Anan Zaki

A KEEN cyclist and triathlete

Grant Cowan enjoyed an active

life.

But the Papanui man’s world

came crashing down 18 months

ago, when he suffered two

strokes.

The former police officer and

father of two teenagers lost the

ability to speak, lost feeling in his

right arm and right leg.

Mr Cowan’s cycling hobby

came to a halt. He now resides

at St John of God care facility, in

Halswell.

Having lost touch with pedals,

Mr Cowan’s family and friends

took him to the New Zealand

Bike Expo last week.

It was there, that they saw an

expression almost unseen for a 18

months.

Said his friend of 30 years

Rodger Wyatt: “The look on his

face, he was just absolutely humming.”

“I didn’t know you could enjoy

someone else’s joy so much,” he

said.

Mr Cowan, 52, tried a recumbent

tricycle. The trike is able to

be ridden while sitting down.

“I was just wrapping my brain on

how do we get this to happen and

get some public support,” he said.

Mr Wyatt gathered two of

Mr Cowan’s closest friends and

former cycling teammates, Jan

Hales and Derrick Murray, to buy

the trike.

But the trike was $16,500.

The trio quickly hatched a plan

to raise money for Mr Cowan.

They will race in the Blue Dog

six-hour blast at McLeans Island

on Saturday, a race that the team

previously took part in with Mr

Cowan.

Mr Murray, who now lives in

Sydney, will fly across the ditch to

fundraise.

“We’ve got a spot for Grant,

he’s in the team but obviously he

can’t race,” Mr Murray.

“It seems like a very fitting way

to get word out about our mate,”

Mr Murray said.

The race at McLeans Island

brought back many memories,

Mr Wyatt said.

“We did a race together out at

McLeans Island as a mixed team

about four or five years ago.

“Grant came off his bike and

tore his leg open on his gear

leaver. It was pretty ugly.”

Mr Cowan was taken to hospital

and the team finished second

place.

“We still bag Grant now about

letting the team down,” Mr

Wyatt said.

Friends rally to get stroke victim back cycling

ALL SMILES: Grant Cowan tries a tricycle with Trikes NZ owner Brian Gilbert. Mr Cowan’s friend

of 30 years Rodger Wyatt (inset), is helping raise money for the trike.

Fire rages, homes at risk

He said Mr Cowan is aware

that his friends are trying to help

him.

“He knows he wants a bike,

he knows it’s going to give him

something to look forward to.

“I think he’s had a reasonably

dark 18 months and the look

on is face [on Monday] was just

extraordinary,” Mr Wyatt said.

Mr Murray just wants to see his

best friend mobile again.

“My thing is, he’s my best mate,

we’ve done so many crazy adventures

all over the South Island,”

he said.

“He doesn’t deserve to be in

a rehab facility, we just thought

we’ve got to find a way at to at

least come on a small ride with

us,” Mr Murray said.

He also wants to raise awareness

for signs of stroke among

40-50 year-olds.

The Stroke Foundation of New

Zealand recommends to learn

three observations to look for in

identifying stroke victims.

If the person’s face drooping on

one side, if one arm is weak or if

their speech is slurred, phone 111.

It’s abbreviated as FAST. Face,

Parkview pupil with Crohn’s

disease fights for judo title

• By Jacob Page

PARKVIEW PRIMARY School

pupil Brooklyn Neale has battled

more than just his opponents to

be successful at judo.

After winning junior judo

titles at a local and regional level

this year, on Sunday he will

compete for a New Zealand title

at the Pioneer Recreation and

Sport Centre.

The 10-year-old, who lives

in Parklands, often competes

during bouts of Crohn’s disease,

a bowel disease which causes

pain and discomfort throughout

his body.

Brooklyn was diagnosed at the

age of three after nine months of

feeling unwell.

His mum Andrea said martial

arts provided an outlet for her

son to be a normal child.

“After two years of learning

the fundamentals of karate

from our local club in Parklands

(Team Umaf Martial Arts), the

children eventually were guided

in the direction of judo, which

is the favoured sport of the head

instructor Kerry Saggers,” she

said.

“Brooklyn took to judo

extremely well and over the past

three years has competed at the

local, national and international

level,” she said.

Brooklyn’s dad Cameron also

competes in judo and had hoped

to compete at the weekend too,

but dislocated his knee.

Brooklyn has fought in judo

tournaments while suffering

flare-ups of Crohn’s, but has

persevered coming away with a

medal at every tournament he

has entered.

It is his last year in the junior

boys category for competitors

aged between seven and

10-years-old.

He has won the open

championship at the Canterbury

open, Central Districts open,

Auckland international

open and the South Island

championships at Nelson in

September. His mum said she

could not be happier for her son.

“He has been working hard to

achieve this and to even compete

at the national championships

is a huge accomplishment,” she

said.

“As a parent, I am extremely

proud of Brooklyn with what he

has been able to achieve with his

condition.

“I would like other children

suffering from inflammatory

bowel disease to know that they

do not have to let it dictate their

lives and that they can achieve

anything,” she said.

CLAIRE HAMPTON managed

to overcome her type two

diabetes within four months

thanks to Sport Canterbury’s Be

Active programme.

Mrs Hampton’s blood glucose

levels dropped from 89 hba1c to

37 hba1c, anything less than 40

is considered normal, whereas

levels over 50 suggest someone is

“My doctor was so happy, she

sent me a text saying I was a

Mrs Hampton now volunteers

which is run in conjunction with

the Diabetes Centre at Linwood

Mrs Hampton said the Be Active

programme gave her a new

lease of life.

“One part of the programme

is focused on well-being and

nutrition whereas the other is

all about exercise. I found out

through Be Active all the places I

could go for exercise that worked

for me. I did Zumba, line dancing,

thai chi, mall walking, just

all sorts.”

North Beach brothers’

SPORTS

indoor cricket success

• By Jacob Page

TWO BROTHERS from North

Beach found success with New

Zealand age-group indoor

cricket teams over the school

holidays.

Jackson Hemingway is part

of the under-17 national team

and younger brother Brodie is

part of the under-13 side. Both

competed in the junior world

series at Action Indoor Sports

Hornby.

Jackson’s team won their

grade, beating South Africa

in the final, while Brodie’s

under-13 team finished third.

The brothers both play their

outdoor cricket for St Bede’s

College.

The junior world series saw

eight teams from New Zealand,

four each from Australia, South

Africa and England, as well as

two from Singapore, compete

across several age-groups for

more than a week.

In June Brodie’s under-13

Canterbury team won their

national title, while Jackson’s

under-17 Canterbury team

finished runner-up.

Jackson, who has been a

regular in Christchurch Metro

outdoor teams, as well as the

St Bede’s College first XI, is a

talented batsman. He usually

comes in during the final

partnership in indoor cricket

and looks to get his team home

or add runs to the total at an

accelerated pace.

“There’s definitely a skill to

it, that’s for sure,” he said. “You

have to rotate the strike while

managing risk and taking on

the big shot when needed.”

Brodie opens the batting in

both forms of the game and

said he was thrilled to make the

national team.

He was part of the

Chisnallwood Intermediate

team that won the plate in the

New Zealand Cup intermediate

competition at Hagley Park last

year.

Both brothers agreed indoor

cricket tests them with both bat

and ball and there is nowhere to

hide in the field.

“But I struggled to find waves

to perform on in the final,

ending up with third place,” she

said.

“I’m stoked that Canterbury

won the scholastics (for the first

time in 30 years) but I’m a bit

disappointed in my personal

result. My surfing feels good

at the moment. I just got some

new boards so I’m testing them

out and my head space is in a

good place. The ocean is very

unpredictable, where anything

could happen, so I need to be

adaptable and prepared for any

type of conditions in America.”

Estella sees the trip as a big

opportunity.

“This will be the biggest comp

I have ever competed in by a long

shot, so I have no expectations.

It would be amazing to make

the quarter-finals or better, but I

will try to make as many heats as

possible,” she said.

“Hopefully the experience will

improve my competition skills.

It will be a good opportunity to

see where the international level

is at.

“I was in Australia a month

ago and the level of surfing

wasn’t as high as I expected it to

be, it was pretty similar to here,”

she said.

“The Aussie surfers have had

so much training, specifically for

heats, and that is definitely where

I need to improve to be able to

get good results overseas.”
