Campbell to be axed

over water comment

Rumblings continue on community boards

• By Julia Evans

SPEAKING OUT over

the city’s water issues will

cost Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board deputy chairman

Aaron Campbell his

position.

City council chief executive

Karleen Edwards has notified

Mr Campbell that the board filed

a notice of motion to remove him

from his role as deputy chairman.

The motion will go to the board’s

next meeting on Monday.

He will remain as a member for the

rest of the term but remains undecided

if he will run again.

It comes after tension from Mr

Campbell’s call to introduce a liquor ban

in Elmwood Park, which chairman Sam

MacDonald said was not supported by the

majority of the board.

This time Mr Campbell questioned the

city council’s membership of Water New

Zealand.

He questioned it during a board area report

to city councillors.

Mr Campbell and Mr MacDonald met

with board governance manager Matt

McLintock the next day.

Mr Campbell was told it was not

the right place to raise the issue without

authority.

Mr Campbell disagreed.

The notice was signed by all board members

including the three city councillors Aaron Keown,

Raf Manji and Jamie Gough.

“I’m disgusted and disappointed,” Mr Campbell

said.

He said he feels let down by his community

board colleagues and should have had the chance

to discuss personality issues.

Mr MacDonald said he would not comment on

the matter until after the meeting.

However, Mr Campbell said the move is political

censorship, an attack on free speech and preelection

manoeuvring before local body elections

next October.

Mr MacDonald and Mr Campbell have different

political leanings – Mr MacDonald is electorate

chairman for Ilam National MP Gerry Brownlee

and Mr Campbell was campaign secretary for

Mayor Lianne Dalziel and Christchurch Central

Labour MP Duncan Webb.

Mr MacDonald (right) also

ran for the board under the

right-leaning Independent

Citizens group, while

Mr Campbell ran as an

independent.

“Central Government

aligning should not come in at

a local level,” Mr Campbell said.

But Mr MacDonald said that is not the case.

“For anyone to insinuate that this is political and

not purely for the outcomes of our community is

quite frankly offensive.”

The move to sack Mr Campbell comes on top of

other community board spats in the city.

There have been clashes over the Denton

Park decision between Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board members, which

required intervention from an independent

facilitator. Dr Edwards and Mayor Lianne Dalziel

also attended one of the board’s meetings

to discuss the decision-making process and

relationships.

More recently there has been friction between

Papanui-Innes Community Board chairwoman

Ali Jones and member John Stringer. An

independent facilitator was also used.

IF EVER a guy deserved a helping hand

it’s Grant Cowan (see page 5).

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.

On another note, more rumblings on the city community

boards (see page 1).

Fire rages, homes at risk

St Andrew’s crossing approved

• By Ashleigh Monk

A SIGNALISED pedestrian

crossing could be installed

outside St Andrew’s College.

Last week the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community

Board approved the $285,000

project, which would replace the

island crossing on Papanui Rd.

The proposal would be presented

to the city council at an

upcoming meeting.

The issue was brought to the

board after city council staff

carried out a risk assessment for

roads across the city and found

the crossing to be a high priority

for an upgrade.

St Andrew’s

College general

manager

David Evans

said the existing

crossing

had been a

safety concern

Sam

MacDonald

for “a long

time.”

“It’s a really

difficult road

to cross because of the high volume

of traffic,” he said.

“We’ve had to put supervision

school finishes to facilitate our

signalised pedestrian crossing on Papanui Rd, outside St Andrew’s College.

students crossing the road in a

safe way.” He said a signalised

crossing was a great solution.

“Rather than people trying to

dodge through traffic and trying

to find a gap, this will provide

a safe crossing. It will probably

take away a bit of angst from

motorists as well.”

Community board chairman

Sam MacDonald said having the

signalised crossing would be a

good solution for both pedestrians

and motorists.

“The beauty is that the lights

will not come on without people

pressing the button. They’re not

going to stop the traffic unless

there’s actually someone there.”

Pedestrian numbers peaked at

90 per hour at 8am on weekdays,

along with the average traffic

peak of 1657 vehicles.

Afternoon pedestrian numbers

peaked at 110 per hour at 3pm,

with the average traffic peak of

1698 vehicles.

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.

Hooked on fishing

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

THE DANGER OF

FEEDING BONES

Belfast’s Braden Anderson, 7, and Izack Paku, 7, joined about 5000

other children and parents at The Groynes lakes for the annual

Take a Kid Fishing event

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

“cool dude”.

Rangi celebrates 25 years

with Japanese sister

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

is celebrating a 25-year

relationship with Japanese sister

school Yokohama Jogakuin

High School.

Rangi Ruru head of community

and global connections

Tania Morgan says looking back

over the last quarter of a century

really highlighted the strength

of the relationship between the

two schools.

“Yokohama Jogakuin’s principal

Mr Hirama approached Rangi

Ruru 25 years ago after looking

around the country for a school he

felt would be best to partner with

and that’s when he knocked at the

door of the then principal, Gillian

Heald,” she said.

A group from Jogakuin, including

Mr Hirama, began their

visit to Rangi with a powhiri in

the school chapel on Wednesday,

and followed that with Maori

lessons that afternoon where

they learned waiata and Kēmu

Rākau (a stick game).

“Mr Hirama often talks about

how important people are in

this relationship we have. He

tangata, he tangata, he tangata

(the people, the people, the

people). That was never more

clearly illustrated as after the

SISTER SCHOOL: Rangi Ruru Girls’ School teacher Gillian

Julie Moor with Yokohama Jogakuin High School principal Mr

2011 earthquake when he came

to Christchurch and brought a

group of his students with him

to show support for Rangi and

Christchurch. There wouldn’t

be one girl at Rangi who does

not know Jogakuin is our sister

school and how important the

relationship is to both of us,” Ms

Morgan said.

During the week, the Yokohama

Jogakuin group took time to

check in on the Japanese garden

which was specially dedicated in

2016. Yokohama Jogakuin also

has a garden on their grounds

which grew the yellow Rangi

Ruru rose.

Rangi Ruru principal Dr Sandra

Hastie officially opened the

garden in 2016, said the 25-year

mark was in fact a starting point

for the next 25 years.

“Over the last two and a half

decades, we have developed a

deep relationship with Yokohama

Jogakuin,” she said.

“It’s a relationship between

student and student, staff

member to staff member and

principal to principal. When

we grow with our partners and

learn from them, we become

stronger.

School zone in final

stage of planning

• By Ashleigh Monk

ISLEWORTH School in

Bishopdale is in the final stages of

forming an enrolment zone.

The school has been working

with the Ministry of Education to

set boundaries for a new zone to

manage the school’s growing roll.

Several primary schools in the

north-west area already have

zones, including Bishopdale

School, Burnside Primary

School, Redwood School,

Harewood School, St Albans

School and Papanui School.

Principal Jeanette Shearer

said the zone was proposed

about three years ago after the

school built two new classrooms

due to roll growth.

“The Ministry of Education

don’t want to build new classrooms

at one school for children

who could be going to another

school which they’re in zone for

and has space for them.”

The zone included Harewood

Rd from Greers Rd to Breens

Rd, both sides of Breens Rd, a

selection of streets off Breens

Rd, Wairakei Rd from Grahams

Rd to Breens Rd, Grahams Rd

from Greers Rd to Wairakei Rd,

Greers Rd from Grahams Rd to

Harewood Rd, the south side of

Wairakei Rd from Charlcott St

to Grahams Rd and both sides of

Gregan Cres.

Ms Shearer said the zone was

restricted to the Isleworth School

side of the main arterial routes

to ensure pupils could travel to

school safely.

“It was a logical way

to put a zone in. We

don’t want children

to have to cross those

main roads to get here.”

Ministry of Education

deputy secretary

Katrina

Casey sector enablement and

support Katrina Casey

said the scheme ensured children

in the area would be prioritised

for enrolment.

“The establishment of a scheme

will help the school manage its

roll and ensure that space is available

for local students to enrol,”

she said.

ECan puts brakes on plan

to extend Shirley route

• By Ashleigh Monk

A PROPOSED extension to the

No 44 Shirley bus service will

not go ahead.

At a meeting with

representatives from affected

parties on Thursday afternoon,

Environment Canterbury

senior manager public

transport Stewart Gibbon said

the consultation process had

shown the community strongly

opposed the extension of the No

44 route.

“We received 140 submissions,

of which 108, or 77 per cent,

opposed the change,” he said.

The proposed extension came

about due to an upcoming

change to the Orbiter route

because of roading changes as

part of the Northern Corridor

project.

The change to the Orbiter

will affect some people living

adjacent to Philpotts Rd, such

as Diana Isaac Retirement

Village staff and residents who

brought their concerns to ECan

in March.

“We took the concerns of the

retirement village on board and

worked with them to develop

a potential solution that meant

they would retain access to the

network, while remaining a

viable option for ECan,” he said.

“We proposed an extension

to the 44, which would provide

a stop on Philpotts Rd within

150m of the village, as the

solution. However, the proposal

to extend the 44 was dependent

on consultation with other

affected residents before any

decisions could be finalised.”

The proposed change to the

No 44 route would have included

travelling to and from Innes

Rd via Philpotts Rd, Glenfield

Cres, Roslyn Ave, Croziers Rd,

Ranger St and Nancy Ave.

Several submissions against

the No 44 extension suggested

other alternatives to the Orbiter

re-route that had previously

been considered by ECan.

Mr Gibbon said he

understood that the decision left

residents and staff of Diana Isaac

Retirement Village without close

access to a bus service, at least in

the short-term.

“Operating an accessible

public transport network is a

priority. We will continue to

work together with the village

residents, Ryman Healthcare,

the Mairehau community and

the city council to investigate the

best way to ensure appropriate

access to the network,” he said.

The Orbiter change is expected

to be put in place in the next few

months, with the exact date to

be confirmed.

A PAPANUI bus is one of seven

Metro services that will change.

From Monday, bus No 28 will

be extended from Papanui to also

travel to Bishopdale, Casebrook

and Northwood.

Earlier this year, Environment

Canterbury consulted on

proposed changes for public

transport as part of its Long

Term Plan 2018-28, to help

address a financial shortfall in

the public transport network.

The other routes affected by

these changes are the 107, 108,

135, 145, 150 and 535, all of

which were originally set to be

axed to fill a $4 million funding

shortfall in February.

The routes had the lowest

patronage in the city, accounting

for 2.3 per cent of all bus travel

between them.

After listening to public feedback

throughout the Long Term

Plan process, a final package

of changes was agreed, and the

routes spared.

Senior manager public transport

Stewart Gibbon urged people

to check the new timetables if

they travel on those services.

“The new timetables are available

now at metroinfo.co.nz. You

Mr Gibbon.

Among the key changes, No

combined route travelling to New

Brighton via the new Taiora QE

II, retaining the current connection

between New Brighton and

Burwood Hospital and allowing

for more connections across the

north-east of Christchurch.

The No 45 will travel from

Westmorland to the CBD, via

Barrington Mall.

A new shopper service, No

155, will be introduced to run

between Lyttelton and Eastgate

via Ferrymead, The Tannery,

Woolston, Bromley and Eastgate.

BISHOPDALE’S Bernadette

Barrett will put months of

training to the test at the New

Zealand Spelling Bee next month.

The home-schooled 15-year-old

will compete against 18 of the

country’s top young spellers on

November 3 in Wellington.

The rigorous “competition

against the dictionary” began with

a written classroom test,

which found the top 200

spellers in the country

who then went headto-head

in six regional

semi-finals across New

Zealand.

The winner will

receive a trophy and

$5000 towards their

academic pursuits. Now

in its 14th year, the

New Zealand Spelling

Bee is a competitive

spelling event aimed at

encouraging students to gain a

love of the English language.

Spelling bee founder Janet Lucas

is expecting a tough competition

– with many of the spellers taking

an extremely competitive stance

and working hard for the win.

“It will be an interesting final.

There are some amazing spellers,

some who are in the final for the

second year in a row, and many of

SCHOOLS

Bishopdale teen off

Bernadette

Barrett

them really want to win and have

worked hard to get here,” she said.

“One of the things that’s great

about the spelling bee is that

anyone can take part – money

is no barrier, which makes it

fair and equal for everyone. Our

sponsorship from the Wright

Family Foundation means that

the finalists win airfares and

accommodation for

themselves and a parent

or caregiver to travel to

the final – successful

students don’t have to

fundraise to get there.”

Ms Lucas said it was

a fallacy that in the

age of the spellchecker,

knowing how to spell was

not important.

“It’s actually more

important than ever.

By widening word

knowledge, children

are better able to understand

and enjoy language, be it online,

spoken, or in print,” she said.

“Lack of communication skills

is at the root of so many problems

in society. The spelling bee aims

to increase vocabulary, leading

to effective communication skills

and a person’s ability to express

themselves.”

Students cook up spicy book

A COOK book inspired by

recipes from refugees and

immigrants has been created by

a group of year 12 Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School students.

Lucy Johnson, Tulsi Lathia,

Sarah Lawrence and Victoria

Park compiled the 100-page

book as part of the Lion Young

Enterprise programme. Spoonful

of Spice is set to be released

before Christmas.

Rangi Ruru teacher Jacqui

Griffith said the book was an

opportunity for the girls to put

their skills to work.

“These enthusiastic young

women began the year with a

vision of exposing the difficulties

migrants have faced on their

journeys to start a new life,” she

said.

“And that’s precisely what

they’ve achieved. But more than

this, it has also been an opportunity

for the girls to develop

and exhibit their leadership and

entrepreneurial skills.”

The girls first got in touch

with a group of refugees and

migrants six months ago, and

organised a series of potluck

dinners where the women

prepared and served traditional

meals from their homelands.

In the cookbook, recipes from

the dinner are accompanied

by interviews with the women.

The book aims to break down

barriers between migrant communities

and locals.

“It’s hard when you feel so

isolated,” Lucy said.

SPICY: Rangi Ruru Girls’ School students Tulsi Lathia and

Lucy Johnson have collated recipes for their cook book

called Spoonful of Spice.

“People really wanted to share

their recipes and their stories

with us, and in publishing it,

we’re helping break down the

barriers that exist between our

communities.”

They received funding from

awards including the Cora

Wilding memorial fund, Coffee

Culture local hero awards and

the YMCA youth voice awards.

Pre-orders for the book are

being taken now.

The girls are talking to a number

of businesses about stocking

their cookbook.

They are also looking at demonstration

evenings with the

migrant women and a possible

second edition.

Veteran Northwood gardener takes

The spring garden

competition has put some

of the city’s most beautiful

gardens in the spotlight,

with Northwood resident

Peter Lawrence taking out

the top award. Ashleigh

Monk talks to him about

what makes his section

stand out

GREEN FINGERS: Northwood

resident Peter Lawrence in his

award-winning garden with

his dog Roxy.

NORTHWOOD’S Peter

Lawrence has always taken pride

in his garden – and moving to

a smaller section hasn’t stopped

him from winning a top garden

award.

Mr Lawrence won the Andrews

Cup at the Christchurch

Beautifying Association’s spring

garden competition.

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

out there.”

He said he has worked to get

the garden looking perfect over

the past year.

“Laying the lawns, cutting out

where the garden was going to

be. I had a vision in my head of

what it was going to look like and

it turned out really well.”

Mr Lawrence said gardening

was a “great past-time”,

regardless of the awards.

“It gets you out and the

neighbours talk to you, everyone

that passes talks to you,” he said.

“I’ll keep going as long as I’m

able to. I like a nice garden, it

offsets the house and upgrades

the area a bit. It’s nice to have an

area that people can enjoy.”

Parklands resident Joceylin

Ching was awarded a certificate

of merit in the competition for

her garden at 153 Royal Park

Drive.

After the earthquakes, the

former Dallington resident

scoured the red zone and rescued

a number of rose bushes.

She moved to Parklands

from her Cheam St home after

being red-zoned and the roses

flourished.

“I lot of the roses I picked up

from people who were leaving the

red zone,” she said.

“It’s great now seeing it all

come together, considering how

sick a lot of the plants were when

I lifted them up.”

Christchurch Beautifying

Association president Ron

Andrews said it had been the best

spring awards since before the

quakes.

“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 wanted to encourage more

people to take part in the awards

even if they didn’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 built up their competition

gardens, and we’re starting to get

more interest. Things are looking

really good.”

St Bede’s brothers play

indoor cricket for NZ

• By Jacob Page

TWO BROTHERS from St

Bede’s College 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 and live at North Beach.

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

and looks to get his team home

“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

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.

St Andrew’s keeper

in World Cup squad

• By Jacob Page

ST ANDREW’S College student

Blair Currie has been named

in the New Zealand under-17

women’s football team to

compete at the World Cup in

Uruguay.

The year 13 goalkeeper, who

plays her club football for Cashmere

Technical, was one of six

Mainland players to be named in

the 21-strong squad on Wednesday.

Other players who made the cut

were Marissa van der Meer (FC

Twenty 11, Middleton Grange),

Macey Fraser (Waimak United ,

Rangiora High School), Gabrielle

Rennie (Waimak United, Rangiora

High School), Jayda Stewart

(Waimak United, Papanui High

School) and Amelia Abbott

(Nelson).

The squad will depart on

November 3 with their first game

coming against Finland on November

14.

Currie transferred to Cashmere

Technical from Waimakariri

United at the start of the season.

When she began playing

football as a six-year-old, she said

she did not initially start out as a

goalkeeper and actually spent a

season playing rugby.

“I used to watch my dad play

masters (football) on the weekend

so thought I’d give it a try,” she

goalkeeper Blair Currie is off

Uruguay next month. PHOTO:

MAINLAND FOOTBALL

said. It wasn’t until she was 13

that she gave goalkeeping her full

focus.

“I’d always ask the coaches if

I could give it a go and I really

loved it when the goalkeeper was

away,” she said.

“Eventually I just did it all the

time.”

Currie was also named women’s

goalkeeper of the year at the

Mainland Football awards night

this month.

Goodbye to Westview Lounge

and Chalmers Restaurant

e DnD Duo

THE entire west wing of the Hornby WMC

closes this weekend. e closure heralds Stage

1 of an exciting two-year redevelopment

project commencing in November.

“It’s a major $18 million redevelopment

that involves the demolition and rebuilding of

half the Club’s current premises,” said Paul

Inwood, General Manager. “e main bar area

needed to be earthquake strengthened, so the

Board decided to look at the bigger picture

and create a multi-functional facility where

families can spend more time in a relaxed

environment.”

e new west wing, to be completed by the

end of 2019, will incorporate a large sports bar

on the ground floor and a mezzanine floor

above with a performance area and a cafe

opening out to a deck with indoor/outdoor

eating options.

Next stage, the current east wing main bar

will be gutted and replaced with a family

restaurant; indoor children’s playground;

corporate areas; and hall for the Club’s sporting

sections. Completion date for Stage 2 is set at

12 months aer completion of Stage 1.
