Quake survey a bid to

help evacuation planning

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PEOPLE LIVING along

the Brighton coast line who

evacuated the night of the

2016 Kaikoura earthquake are

being called on to take part in a

research project.

Canterbury University is

aiming to survey as many

residents as possible to collect

data on the tsunami evacuation

response that took place

following the

magnitude 7.8

earthquake nearly

two years ago.

Matthew

Hughes, one of

the academics

overseeing the

Matthew

Hughes

project, said

the survey isn’t

about asking for

opinions on the night of the

earthquake, it is about what

residents did in response to the

tsunami hazard.

The survey is part of a wider

research project led by GNS

Science and called Quicker

and Safer Tsunami Evacuation

through Agent-Based Modelling.

The project is looking at

tsunami risks and exposure in

Christchurch and Wellington

Dr Hughes said the data

collected from the survey is

going to be interesting in itself.

“But OPTION the really ONEcrucial

part of

BIG PROJECT: Canterbury University is surveying coastal residents on how they responded to

the tsunami hazard following the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake.

this is going to start informing

sophisticated computer

modelling of population

movements when they evacuate,”

he said.

The models will simulate

people evacuating after a

tsunami warning.

The project involves a

partnership with Civil Defence

Emergency Management, the

city council and Environment

Canterbury. It is planned the

information formed from the

research will be presented in a

series of workshops for affected

coastal communities next year.

It comes after confusion

following the quake, in which

hundreds were stuck in traffic for

more than an hour trying to get

to higher ground.

In the new survey, residents

will be asked how they knew

there was a potential tsunami

hazard, what they did when the

official warning went out, what

their knowledge of tsunami

hazards is, and how it influenced

their behaviour.

It will focus on residents

living in coastal areas in eastern

areas of the city, including New

Hearing aids –

the next generation.

Hearing aids that are smaller, look more stylish, and

are packed with features for people who are always

on the go.

Try a pair for FREE * , and if you buy, you’ll get free care

for the life of your devices valued up to $3500! *

Plus a FREE upgrade to advanced

technology valued up to $2000. *

Brighton and Southshore as well

as the Sumner, Redcliffs and the

wider Banks Peninsula area.

The survey also asks people to

draw the route they drove if they

evacuated.

“We want to map what they

did and try understand how

their prior state of knowledge

influenced that behaviour,” Dr

Hughes said.

He said the evacuation routes

collected from the survey will

go towards developing the

computer model, which will

help Civil Defence and other

agencies help with evacuation

planning.

Anzac Fire Station senior

station officer Shane O’Brien,

who was on duty the night

of the earthquake, said every

fire station in the city has an

emergency plan but the more

information it receives the

better.

Dr Hughes said the aim is for

evacuation paths and evacuation

zones to be further informed

by local knowledge when the

models are developed.

The survey will take place over

the next several months and a

preliminary report will

be completed at the end of

the year. To take part in the

survey, go to http://canterbury.

WE PAY tribute today to one of Shirley

Boys High School’s great staff members –

John Fox (page 6).

John passed away a couple of weeks ago

and the huge turnout to his funeral underlined

his popularity.

John was synonymous with sport at the school.

He was rugby development officer, managed and coached

the dragon boat team, was instrumental in the school’s crosscountry

and had a big hand in athletics.

He was the health officer at the school, looking after wellness

and first aid as well as liaising with the school’s guidance

department.

A fairly impressive record.

Also on sport, we have the Zonta Sports Awards winners and

finalists on page 13.

Rangi Ruru rowing and the Christchurch Girls’ High School

sevens team were big winners.

Playcentre a step closer to old site

• By Ashleigh Monk

BELFAST Playcentre is a

step closer to getting back

to its original site after a fire

destroyed the original building.

On Friday the Papanui-Innes

Community Board approved

a request to have two trees

removed from the centre’s land

on Main North Rd to make way

for a new relocatable building.

Belfast Playcentre coordinator

Julie O’Rourke

said she was pleased with the

decision as this was the second

time the playcentre had applied

to have the trees removed.

“They’re really average trees,

and we’ve asked to have them

removed before, so this was the

second go,” she said.

“When those trees were there

at our old centre, we used to

have rodents coming into the

building by climbing up the

trees. They were a real health

and safety issue for us, because

we don’t want rat and things

coming in.”

The playcentre had been

operating from the Spencerville

Community Hub since a fire

destroyed the centre a year ago.

The blaze started when

something was left on a hot

stove at a five-year-old’s

birthday party.

HOME: After its building was destroyed by fire, the Belfast Playcentre has been holding

classes at temporary sites like the Belfast Community Centre.

Ms O’Rourke said that while

she was grateful to be able to

use the space, it had affected the

playcentre’s roll.

“We haven’t been able to get

more people coming to the

playcentre because most people

are waiting for a building.”

“Some of the time we just

choose to go on outings, because

it’s quite hard for our parents

to actually physically get out to

Spencerville. So parents who

don’t have cars, it’s hard for

them, so that’s why we go out

so that we don’t lose contact

with everybody.” She said the

news that the trees were to be

removed would be “great news”

for the community.

“It’s been really tricky, but the

core group of parents have been

really determined to rebuild,

and everything I’ve heard

from the community is parents

are just waiting for it to be

rebuilt.”

She said there was no

definitive time line for the tree

removal, but she hoped the

centre would be back up and

running in time for the new

year.

Love of Shakespeare gets Ruby to UK

St Margaret’s

student on

stage at Globe

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE WORK of William

Shakespeare hasn’t always been a

passion for St Margaret’s College

student Ruby Anderson.

But wanting to jump at any

opportunity to perform, she

was drawn into the playwright’s

theatrical work when she

took part in the national

SGCNZ University of Otago

Sheilah Winn Shakespeare

festival last year.

Now Ruby, 17, has been

selected alongside Christchurch

Rudolf Steiner School student

Quinn Kueppers to travel to

London to take part in an

intensive theatre programme

based around the Shakespeare’s

work.

Ruby said since taking part

in the festival, she had fostered

“such a love” for Shakespeare.

In fact when she took part

in it again this year, she was

compelled to direct and perform

a piece from Shakespeare’s

comedy As You Like It alongside

fellow student Emily Stewart.

The work was recognised with

a range of awards in both the

Anderson (third from left) performing William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew at the

SGCNZ National Shakespeare Schools Production.

regional and national sections of

the festival. “I think Shakespeare

for young people is dubbed

as non-relevant for people or

maybe not accessible to a young

generation but I think that

stigma is just so wrong,” she said.

She said the way his work has

lasted so long throughout history

is unlike any other author and

it is a testament to his work and

longevity.

Ruby and Quinn will join

24 students from around the

country in the Shakespeare

Globe Centre New Zealand

Young Shakespeare Company.

The students will travel to

London in July. Quinn said just

seeing London will be amazing,

but he is looking forward to

working with the directors and

performing at the Globe Theatre

the most. They were selected

from 48 students who took

part in the SGCNZ National

Shakespeare Schools Production

at Dunedin earlier this month.

The 48 students were whittled

down from 5000 who took part

in a series of national SGCNZ

University of Otago Sheilah

Winn Shakespeare festivals.

Ruby said she already has

a good bond with the other

students travelling to London

and is excited to work with them

again. “I am absolutely humbled

I have been selected for such an

opportunity,” she said.

Established in 1991, the

programme has seen 520

students travel to Shakespeare’s

Globe in London. The theatre

is a reconstruction of the Globe

Theatre which was built in 1599

by Shakespeare’s company Lord

Chamberlain’s Men. The twoweek

theatrical programme will

see the students take part in 12

rehearsals with Globe director

Tim Walker before they perform

for the public.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Pokie player thought hold up was a joke

• By Sophie Cornish

WHEN AN armed robber

ordered people playing the pokies

to lie on the floor, Jenny Hogg

thought it was a joke.

But when Ms Hogg saw the

offender’s firearm was not a toy

gun like she first thought, she

realised it was

serious.

Ms Hogg

was playing

the pokies on

Tuesday night

at Coasters

Tavern in

Redwood

Jenny Hogg

when three

armed robbers

held up the bar.

During the ordeal shortly

before 9pm, one patron, an

elderly man, tried to wrestle

with one of the robbers. It

is believed he was hit in the

forehead with the blunt end of a

machete.

Ms Hogg said he received a

cut to his forehead. A woman in

her 20s also received a fat lip, she

said.

A shot was fired during the

ordeal, which lasted between five

and eight minutes

Ms Hogg said she believes the

shot was fired at the roof. She

said she tried to tell jokes and

laugh to keep people calm.

“I didn’t even realise everyone

was lying on the floor. I thought

this guy had walked in as a joke. I

was still playing the pokies, then

I turned around and everyone

was on the floor and I thought

‘oh, sh*t’, I better get on the floor.

I was like ‘oh, you’re for real

mate.”

Detective Sergeant Brad

Greenstreet said the men,

who were armed with various

weapons, including a machete

and a firearm, threatened bar

staff and patrons and demanded

money.

The men left in a stolen dark

blue Mazda Familia hatchback

before dumping it nearby and

using a second vehicle to leave

the area.

They wore scarves over their

faces and black hoodies.

Detective Sergeant Greenstreet

called the incident “violent and

dangerous.”

He said his advice for people

in a situation like this would be

to comply with the offender’s

demands.

“These things can escalate and

get out of hand quickly.”

ON THE CASE:

A detective

at the scene

of the armed

robbery at

Coasters

Tavern in

Redwood.

“It is fortunate more

people were not seriously hurt.”

Ms Hogg believes about $4000

was taken.

Goldi​ Group Ltd general

manager Gareth Bull, a

representative of the company

that owns the tavern, said he

would not comment as the

robbery was under police

investigation.

Teen to walk

for charity in

memory of

grandmother

• By Ashleigh Monk

A ST Andrew’s College student

is set to take part in a charity

walk to raise money for breast

cancer, in honour of her

grandmother who died from the

disease.

Year 13 student Amiee

Bonniface will walk 10km in the

Pink Star Walk on November

10 to raise money for the Breast

Cancer Foundation.

Amiee’s grandmother

Gweneth Parry died of breast

Farewell to Shirley Boys’ stalwart

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A LARGE send off was held to

honour long-serving Shirley

Boys’ High School staff member

John Fox.

Mr Fox died at Christchurch

Hospital on October 17 after

battling a ongoing illness.

He was farewelled with a

service at Shirley Boys’ High

School on Wednesday.

More than 1100 students and

about 500 old boys attended, plus

staff.

Headmaster John Laurenson

said Mr Fox was a huge part of

the school and meant a lot to the

students and staff.

He said a full school haka was

performed for Mr Fox, which

could be heard all the way back

past The Palms Shopping Centre.

Mr Fox had been heavily

involved with the school for

more than 18 years after his

children attended Shirley Boy’s

High in the late 1990s and early

2000s.

From about 2003, he

was employed as the rugby

development officer.

He also managed and coached

the school’s dragon boating

team.

Mr Laurenson said Mr Fox was

“instrumental” in cross-country

where he organised teams and

was involved in the school’s

athletics.

He was the health officer at the

school, looking after wellness

and first aid, as well as liaising

with the school’s guidance

department.

Mr Laurenson said his office

was a place where students would

go where they would be able to

talk off the record and unload to

someone who understood them

when there were problems.

“I would wander in and

he and I would talk about

inconsequential things but that

acted as a sort of a release for me

personally as well. That was the

type of person he was.”

Outside of school, family was a

major part of Mr Fox’s life and he

was secretary for the Canterbury

Rugby Football Union where he

managed multiple teams.

He grew up in Auckland and

attended Auckland Grammar

School.

He moved to Christchurch

Mr Fox fell ill several years

ago, but was involved with the

school until the end of term 3.

He was then admitted to

“Even with his failing kidneys,

Former St Bede’s student

wins top architecture award

FORMER St Bede’s

College student Matthew

Durning has won a

prestigious Australian

urban design award.

His project, Brisbane’s

Fish Lane, won the

landscape architecture

award for urban design,

which was presented by

the Australian Institute of

Landscape Architects. It

will go alongside his earlier

awards, including the

Queensland urban design

award and the Queensland

minster’s award for urban

design.

Durning graduated from

St Bede’s in 2005 and then

completed a Masters in

Landscape Architecture at

Lincoln University before

moving to Brisbane in

2011 and then to Sydney

with landscape architect

company, RPS.

Fish Lane is a vibrant

inner-city laneway that

connects Brisbane’s

Cultural Centre and South

Bank to the suburban West

End.

It has 17 retailers,

including bars and

restaurants, plus 35 pieces

of public art.

DESIGNER: Former St

Bede’s College student

Matthew Durning

with the landscape

architecture award for

urban design.

Durning said

because Fish Lane is

spread over four blocks

private owners and the

council, the need for a

comprehensive stakeholder

communication

Year after year, the Pataka Country

Christmas Shop, located at the north end of

Marshland Road, warmly invites customers

to enjoy a family-friendly experience

leading up to the festive season, with

children having the chance to choose their

own Christmas

decorations from

their extensive

selection.

Housed in an

historic brick apple

coolstore and an

adjacent farm

building, Pataka

offers Santas,

snowglobes, musical

features, nativity

scenes and much

more – all of them looking right at home

in this lovely setting. There will be even

more arriving too, as some stock has been

delayed this year, so keep popping in over

programme was

paramount.

“Because we were

turning an unused space

into a dynamic, 24-hour

retail, hospitality and

commercial area, we

had to come up with a

bold design to ensure a

successful transformation,”

he said.

“We wanted to create an

element of surprise and

intrigue so decided to turn

it into an ephemeral arts

scape.”

The judging panel said

Fish Lane delivered a

highly-curated urban

experience, celebrating

Brisbane’s unique lifestyle

as an outdoor city.

They also said it

embraced four key design

principles. It created a safe

and legible pedestrianfocused

street scape;

desirable and inspiring

sub-tropical spaces and

places that are responsive

to Brisbane’s climate; a

canvas for sustainable

innovation and creativity;

and a venue for the local

economy to thrive through

distinct niche retail and

commercial spaces.

Ouch! My feet hurt

Are your feet feeling tired or hurting? Do

you have corns or warts, calluses or fungus?

People take their feet for granted, until they

are in pain and then they will pay attention to

them.

Feet experience daily abuse from the way

people walk off balance, neglect them and

use them. We have all experienced pain from

a pair of shoes that doesn’t fit properly, and

which hinders our feet and their needed

breathing room and protection.

Until the pain in unbearable, most people

forget about the value of their feet.

Papanui Foot Clinic to the rescue!

At the Papanui Foot Clinic their focus is

to provide an efficient and effective footcare

solution for whatever is ailing your feet and to

provide answers that will keep you active and

comfortable.

If you are unsure what is wrong with your

feet, their team provides a full foot assessment

to identify any outlining issues. They will then

treat the cause to ensure your feet stay healthy

and keep you on the move.

Are you now or have you ever experienced:

• In-grown Toenail • Heal Pain

• Arch Pain • Bunions

• Diabetic Foot • Forefoot or Toe Pain

• Sports Injuries • Arthritic Feet

• Corns

• Callouses

• Toenail Fungal Infections

Have you had a foot injury and need

some rehabilitation? Children

often don’t complain but are

in constant need of having

their feet assessed during their

growing years to make sure

they don’t develop Sever’s

Disease. Especially children

who play sport. Children have

many feet concerns as they grow

and develop, and you can count on

The Papanui Foot Clinic as one of your

parental advisers.

Services include:

• Treatment of foot and ankle disorders,

including skin and nail conditions (blisters,

callus, ingrown toenails - conservative care

and nail edge resection if appropriate)

• Biomechanical causes of back pain, hip pain,

knee pain, leg pain, ankle pain and foot pain

• Prescription of corrective foot orthotics (to

fit sports and/or fashion shoes)

• Advice on appropriate strength or stretching

requirements, and training programs

• Advice on each person’s specific

requirements in running shoes / football boots

Dolphins, pile driving spark questions

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Salmons

THE BANKS Peninsula

Community Board will ask the

Lyttelton Port Company about

its plan to manage the impact

of pile driving on Hector’s

dolphins.

The board

decided to

question

LPC after a

presentation

from Māui and

Hector’s Dolphin

Defenders

Genevieve

Robinson ​

committee

member

Genevieve

Robinson last week.

She said she wanted to see

LPC’s cruise berth design and

marine mammal management

plans made publicly available.

She had questioned LPC on

its plans and said most of her

questions remained unanswered.

Community board member

Felix Dawson says the board

wants to assist Ms Robinson in

getting the answers she seeks as

other will be concerned about

the dolphins’ protection.

“We wanted to help get the

answers she wanted because

it’s important if she’s correct.

If there’s some doubt about the

correct approach being taken . . .

QUESTIONS: The Banks Peninsula Community Board is seeking information on LPC’s plan to

minimise the impact of pile driving on dolphins.

then we wanted to assist her.”

The board’s questions will

be combined with others from

the city council. They will be

sent this week through the

city council’s investment arm,

Christchurch City Holdings Ltd,

which owns the port, said a city

council spokeswoman.

The spokeswoman would

not say what the city council’s

additional questions will be.

Ms Robinson said she did not

believe LPC was doing enough

to prevent the negative effects of

pile driving.

“When they do pile driving, it

makes a noise into the water. That

is what concerns us regarding the

dolphins’ hearing,” she said.

LPC chief executive Peter

Davie said the welfare of Hector’s

dolphins was a priority during

construction of the new berth.

Marine pile driving is expected

to start next month, while some

land-based piling started earlier

this year. Mr Davie said work

needed to begin soon in the

water to have the berth ready for

the 2020/21 cruise season.

Most piles will be installed

between March and December

next year.

He said the size of the piles

for the berth was smaller than

initially planned to mitigate the

effects of the noise on dolphins.

“Modelling . . . shows underwater

sound energy per pile will be 100

times less,” Mr Davie said.

However, Ms Robinson did

not agree, saying the modelling

would not provide an accurate

measure of the sound generated.

Mr Davie said LPC had

undertaken recent noise

measurements, but the data was

“still being processed.”

Mrs Robinson said using screw

piling would generate “barely

any noise” if it was used instead.

Mr Davie said screw piling

would not be strong enough to

“create a seismically resilient

wharf” which could berth the

large cruise liners.

Otago University marine

science department head,

professor Stephen Dawson,

had conducted a study of earlier

pile-driving operations in

Lyttelton Harbour between 2014

and 2015.Prof Dawson’s team

positioned instruments around

the harbour which were attuned

to the frequency of the Hector’s

dolphins’ echolocation.

He said the instruments

recorded fewer dolphins during

pile driving. “It definitely denies

habitat. That is a fact.”

He said the underwater sound

of those piles being driven in was

at a similar level to a gunshot.

That could cause deafness

and change the behaviour of the

dolphins. Prof Dawson said pile

driving could see a substantial

decrease in dolphin numbers.

75 years of looking after children

Fire rages, homes at risk

ONE OF the city’s oldest

pre-schools is on the search for its

original class of 1943.

The not-for-profit community

run Avonside Early Childhood

Centre is this year celebrating its 75 th

year of offering quality education to

children.

The centre, on Woodham Rd,

started in 1943 as the Avonside Girls

High Nursery School, offering day

care to working mothers.

Established by pioneering psychologist,

Doreen Dolton, the pre-school

also gave high school students an opportunity

to observe and take part in

the care of children.

On Saturday the centre will be

marking its 75 th anniversary with a

day of activities for children past and

present.

“We would love nothing more than

to have some of the original class of ’43

join us on November 3 to help cut our

special 75 th birthday cake,” said senior

teacher Sue Downey.

“Like many pre-schools in the city’s

east we struggled with numbers in

the immediate aftermath of the 2011

earthquake which forced a number of

our families from the area.

“Thanks to the ongoing support

of our community, our roll is now

healthier than ever, putting us in a

great position to serve this area for

another 75 years,” Mrs Downey said.

The birthday party will feature a

The celebration will begin at 10am

Reality stars in Papanui for birthday

• By Ashleigh Monk

WHAT BETTER way to

celebrate your 50th birthday

than with your favourite reality

television stars?

Papanui businessman Kim

Buckley will fly Storage Wars

stars Sally and Laurence Martin

to New Zealand for his partner

Mandy Rooney’s birthday next

month.

The Martin’s make their living

buying and selling items at

auction, and along with Storage

Wars they have also starred in

the spin-off show Baggage Battles.

Mr Buckley, who owns a KB’s

Bakery, said he and Ms Rooney

met the couple in 2014 at their

Los Angeles, California, antiques

store Studio Antiques.

“We met them after I had a

heart attack over in America. It

was only a wee one, but shortly

after I’d gotten out of hospital we

went to visit their shop,” he said.

“I said to Mandy on the way

to LA airport ‘why don’t we call

in and see the Baggage Battles

people and see if they are at there

shop in El Segoda?’ It was right

by the airport, so we called in .

. . we all clicked straight away,

Laurence thought I was his long

lost brother.”

Mr Buckley said he and Ms

Rooney were not only fans of the

Martin’s, but also good friends.

“Every time we go to the US we

go and see them, we’ve got to be

quite good mates,” he said.

He said he and Ms Rooney

were not antique collectors.

“We are more into bar

memorabilia. But we like them

for them, and that’s likewise, and

just love their whole attitude.

They are lovely people. Laurence

is a bit eccentric, and Sally is just

a lovely, happy-go-lucky lady.”

He said the Martin’s had never

been to New Zealand, but were

looking forward to visiting.

Mr Buckley said he and Ms

Rooney met seven years ago

through friends.

“We didn’t actually like

each other at first, but through

lots of talking and getting

to know each other things

blossomed.”

He said Laurence and Sally

FAST FRIENDS: Baggage Battle stars

fans Kim Buckley and Mandy Rooney after the

Martin would be among

the estimated 170 people to

attend Ms Rooney’s birthday

celebrations.

The Martin’s would arrive

in Christchurch on November

22 for Ms Rooney’s birthday

on November 24 and stay until

December 10.

Free shuttles for New Brighton fireworks event

FREE SHUTTLE buses will be

made available on the night of

New Brighton’s annual fireworks

celebration to make it easier for

the public getting to and from the

event.

A Slide’n’Ride offer is being prepared

to help ease traffic around

the fireworks event on Friday.

The free shuttle buses will be

running from Taiora QE II to

New Brighton between 5pm and

8pm.

The buses will then depart New

Brighton between 9.30pm and

10.30pm.

Every bus passenger over the

age of five will get a complimentary

ticket for a hydroslide ride

at either Taiora QE II or at Jellie

Park.

City council events and art

manager Karena Finnie said

thousands of people will be

heading to the event and it did

not want them stuck in traffic for

hours.

“It’s bad for the environment

and takes the gloss off the night,”

she said.

FORMER ST Andrew’s College

student Thomas Russel is

not one to look back at past

accomplishments as his rowing

career takes off.

The Avon rower has

made the New Zealand

elite team in his first

season out of secondary

school ranks.

He was part of the

national team which

competed at the world

championships in

Bulgaria last month in

the men’s four.

The 19-year-old was

in the St Andrew’s under-17

coxed four which won gold at the

Maadi Cup secondary schools’

regatta in 2017.

Russel made the Southern

New Zealand coxless four at the

Junior World Championships last

year and the under-23 coxless

four which won a bronze in

Poland in July.

Russel is not one to let the

quick success go to his head.

far, I just want to make the most

of every opportunity in front of

me,” he said.

He started rowing in 2014 by

following his mates to try it out.

Russel credited the St

Andrew’s coaches for his

progression and success at

Maadi Cup regattas.

Russel was hopeful

he would spend a lot of

his time at Rowing New

Zealand’s base at Lake

Karapiro to continue his

growth in the sport.

Russel has plenty of

familiar faces to help

ease him into the elite

squad with former crewmate

Ben Taylor is also in his first year

in the national set-up while top

single-sculler Robbie Manson is a

former StAC old boy.

Russel said while the Tokyo

Olympics was on his radar he

has tried not to put too much

pressure on himself.

“I’m happy to just be part of

the squad at this stage and if I’m

picked for a boat for Tokyo that

would be great, but for now, I just

want to keep getting better,” he

said.

DETERMINED: Canterbury kendo players Masa Matsunami (left), Tania Butterfield and Kai

Edwards all received medals at the South Island Kendo Championships at Papanui High School.

Runner-up for Matsunami

PAPANUI’S MASA Matsunami

was forced to settle for second to

Matsunami in spite of having less

experience.

The event also marked the 30th

anniversary of the Canterbury

club.

Edwards, who was an

apprentice with the New Zealand

team at the world championships

last month in South Korea,

was able to defeat the more

experienced Matsunami, who

competed for New Zealand at the

global event.

It was one of a number of

successes for the Canterbury

club with Matsunami and Chris

McGill combining to win the

kata event together.

Hanleys Essential Dog Roll

Essentials dog rolls have now rebranded to Hanleys Essential

Dog Roll under owner Philippa Hanleys animal nutrition banner.

Philippa has been making natural horse and dog food for over

10 years and lives locally in Geraldine.

Hanleys Essential Dog Roll are not just amazing meat. Philippas

own amino acids blend from Nz whey protein concentrate

are added along with organic minerals, rice and hemp seed oil

from Canterbury. Hemp seed oil has been dubbed ‘nature’s

most perfectly balanced oil’, due to its 3:1 ratio of Omega 6

to Omega 3, deemed an essential requirement for long-term

healthy nutrition. Brown rice flour and other organic minerals

are also added, making the rolls full of clean protein and good

fats. Hanleys contains 18% protein so next time you are buying

your dog roll compare this figure. More protein means you

need to feed less, so you are receiving far better value for

money. Feed less and save more.

It is not just about what is in the rolls. What is missing is also

crucial. No preservatives or chemicals are added. Many pet

owners probably do not realise how hard preservatives are

on a dog’s kidneys and how much damage they may cause. The

business mottos are: ‘enhance all health’ and ‘health before

money’.

Feed just a portion of normal supermarket rolls due to the

superfood ingredients.

Delta rhythmic

gymnast takes

first national title

• By Jacob Page

BISHOPDALE’S Delta

Rhythmic Gymnastics Club

member Sarah Quinn became a

national champion for the first

time after a stellar competition

at Tauranga.

The 16-year-old, who goes to

Villa Maria College and lives

in West Melton, became the

overall national champion at

level nine.

Sarah won the ribbon and

ball competitions and was third

in the clubs. Her consistency

across all disciplines earned her

the national title.

“It was an amazing feeling,

something I wasn’t expecting.”

Sarah started gymnastics nine

years ago just to try it out and

has not looked back.

She trained for more than

15 hours a week in the lead-up

to the competition and was

delighted with the overall result.

Sarah said she enjoys using

the clubs. “I always enjoyed

learning new routines with

them and it was something I

learnt quickly,” she said.

She will now turn her

attention to winning a level 10

title next year at the nationals

to add another golden moment

to her rhythmic gymnastics

CV.

REAL ESTATE

You asked for it ... we found it!

103 Penruddock Rise, Westmorland

Auction: Thursday, 8 November 2018 - unless sold prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 2 living rooms | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number BE193132

On a flat 938 sq m section, with

magnificent views encompassing rolling

hills, city lights and the Southern alps,

and all on a single level with easy drive-on

access; this Westmorland property has a list

of requirements we often see and can seldom

fulfill, with demand always outstripping

supply. The beautifully finished executive

home is spacious and well laid out with

multiple choices of living and entertaining

zones, indoors and out. With solar panels

installed to maximize the home’s fantastic

exposure to all day sun, it’s no wonder our

vendors are only reluctantly relinquishing

their much loved home to relocate north.

A centerpiece kitchen sits at the heart of

the home, with sleek stainless steel benches,

custom built charcoal joinery and 900 wide

free standing range. From here you can

preside over two separate living areas, the

dining room and three different outdoor

decks, not to mention panoramic views.

The design is perfect for family living

and entertaining with the areas able to be

separated off when required for a more

intimate feel. Each of the outdoor spaces

has a different aspect, making it easy to find

a sheltered spot in the sun at any time.

There are four bedrooms, the master

being particularly spacious, with walkin

robe and ensuite. Both bathrooms are

elegantly finished with extensive tiling

and modern wall hung vanities. There is a

separate laundry and a double garage with

internal access. Raised vege planters are

currently flourishing with home grown

produce, testament to the unique hillside

micro climate and just one more reason to

come for the views and stay for the lifestyle.

Open Home Saturday 3rd and Sunday

4th November 4:00pm - 4.30pm.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartments suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

Winder was part of the Pure

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking t operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bigger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and
