Agonising

time for fire

devastated

couple

• By Anan Zaki

A RETIRED couple are reeling

after a devastating fire destroyed

their Halswell home on Labour

Day.

Derek Petch, 75, and his partner

Marie Musson, 84, had lived

together at the Alvaston Dr house

for 12 years. The fire started at

about 4.15pm in the rear unit of

the two-unit section.

Ms Musson was taken to hospital

on the day for precautionary

checks. Speaking the day after the

fire, she could not hold back the

tears.

“It’s just hit me, that’s our home

gone,” Ms Musson said.

Campaign

to clean

up Kyle

Park gets

results

• By Anan Zaki

HORNBY’S KYLE Park is finally

getting the clean up locals have

been campaigning for.

Western News reported on the

overgrown weeds at the park in

September following complaints

from the Christchurch City BMX

Club.

The city council announced last

week it has begun removing the

weeds at the park.

The club’s track manager

Michael Stronach previously

said the weeds at the park were

“disgraceful”, and that it had been

neglected since asbestos fencing

was put up in 2015.

City councillor Vicki Buck

said a maintenance programme

started on Thursday.

The maintenance plan consists

of mowing, fence-line spraying

and weed control. The park will

be mowed twice a month.

Mr Stronach was delighted that

the city council had listened to the

BMX club and Hornby residents.

“It’s always good when you get

a result. It’s good for the community

not just the BMX club,”

he said.

THAT’S A well deserved honour for Jeff

Whittaker on page 16 today.

Jeff has been made a life member of the

Canterbury Rugby League for the fantastic

work he has put in for the code over the

decades, both as a player and later a behind the scenes man.

He was part of the great Halswell side of the mid-80s, coached

by the late ‘Herman’ Williams, memorable for two great grandfinals

when the mercurial Phil Bancroft kicked field goals to

snatch victories over arch rivals Hornby in 1985 and 87.

I can still see one of those goals taken from just over 50m, the

ball wobbling its way towards the goalposts, Bancroft raised

arm, fist clenched in a victory salute.

Those were the days.

Slower speeds likely for Templeton

• By Anan Zaki

TEMPLETON residents are a

step closer to getting their wish

of slower speeds in the area.

City council staff have recommended

that 100 km/h roads in

Templeton should be reduced to

80 km/h.

The

Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton

Community

Board

is set to vote

on the staff

Garry Kilday

recommendation

today.

The affected

roads are – Dawsons, Hasketts,

Jones, Kirk, Leggett, Maddisons,

Newtons and Waterloo Rds.

Western News reported last

year that Templeton residents

believed the existing 100km/h

speed limits are an “accident

waiting to happen.”

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairman Garry Kilday

welcomed the new recommendation.

“For example on Kirk Rd,

after coming into the 50 km/h

area from the 100km/h area,

people still do 100km/h,” Mr

Kilday said.

Reducing Kirk Rd to 80km/h

would discourage drivers from

speeding through a 50km/h

area, he said.

Some roads are too narrow

for the 100km/h speed limit, Mr

Kilday said.

“Maddisons Rd is not a true

road. It’s a dirt road that’s been

tar sealed.”

A city council report said because

of the speed limit reductions

by Selwyn District Council

earlier this year, the area had a

variation of speed limits, which

may be confusing to motorists.

Some rural roads such as

Newtons Rd, was too narrow,

had no hard shoulders and

no road markings, a 100km/h

speed limit, the report said.

“These speed limit changes are

proposed primarily for safety

and consistency,” the report

stated.

Automobile Association, NZ

Transport Agency, police and

the Selwyn District Council

supported the proposed speed

limit changes.

Installing the new speed

signs across Templeton will

cost $30,000, and the funding is

sourced from the city council’s

traffic operations signs and road

marking budget.

Should the changes be approved

by the community

board, it will take about six

weeks to complete.

SLOW: Speed limits of

100km/h on some Templeton

roads could be reduced to

80km/h.

CRASH DATA:

Dawsons Rd: One serious

and three minor/non-injury

crashes.

Hasketts Rd: One fatal,

two serious and six minor/

non-injury crashes.

Jones Rd: One fatal, seven

serious and 17 minor/noninjury

crashes.

Kirk Rd: Nine minor/ noninjury

crashes.

Leggett Rd: No crashes.

Maddisons Rd: Two serious

and four minor/noninjury

crashes.

Newtons Rd: One fatal,

two minor/non-injury

crashes.

Waterloo Rd: One serious

and 23 minor/non-injury

crashes.

ROAD CHANGES LIKELY

The intersection of Annex and

Blenheim Rds in Middleton

may soon have a no U-turn

restriction. A city council staff

recommendation says that there

have been concerns raised by the

public about the safety at the intersection.

A city council report

said when motorists travelling

on Blenheim Rd towards Annex

Rd perform a U-turn, it causes

confusion for left-turning motorists

from Annex Rd. Main South

Rd could also get two no-right

turn and U-turn restrictions.

City council staff recommended

that the restrictions be placed

the road’s two intersections with

Harvard Ave and Green Lane.

The decisions will be voted on by

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board today.

GUTTED:

A fire

destroyed

two houses

on Alvaston

Drive,

Halswell, on

Labour Day.

Couple reeling after

Halswell house fire

•From page 1

The couple said they received

countless messages of support

and were staying at a relative’s

home.

They only had the clothes on

their backs and a handful of

items firefighters could salvage.

“The firemen were bringing

pictures off the walls and

jewellery all out for us,” Mr Petch

said.

Ms Musson often sat by the

window during the day and saw

many people walk past her house.

“People used to stop everyday

and stop and wave to me. I just

wish people could know that I’m

alright,” Ms Musson said.

Mr Petch said the fire spread in

a matter of minutes after a panel

heater that was against a couch

was accidentally turned on by a

child. The rear unit was occupied

by a young family of five.

When the fire started, Mr

Petch went to the rear unit to

help evacuate a nine-month-old

baby.

At the time, only the couch was

on fire.

“I went to get a hose, and when

I returned, in a minute, it [the

fire] had spread from the couch

to the whole [living] room,” Mr

Petch said.

“In four minutes the whole

place was engulfed,” he said.

The fire spread from the rear

unit into the roof of the front.

The ceiling fell down and most of

their furniture was damaged by

water from the fire hoses.

No one was injured in the fire.

Kyle Park to be cleaned up

•From page 1

However, Mr Stronach was

disappointed he only got the

result after going public.

“It’s been [overgrown] for two

years now so they [city council]

obviously weren’t listening to

people before,” he said. “Maybe

the publicity around the

Denton Park community centre

might have helped. It’s put the

whole area in

the limelight,”

Mr Stronach

said.

But people

shouldn’t have

to go public

to keep basic

Marc Duff

maintenance,

he said. “This

is part of what we pay our rates

for, isn’t it?”

Prior to the maintenance

programme, the BMX club had

to remove the weed to improve

the appearance of the park, Mr

Stronach said.

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association chairman Marc

Duff welcomed the Kyle Park

maintenance programme. “It’s

outstanding news. There has

been concerns about Kyle Park

for quite a while,” he said. “And

it’s good for BMX Club because

they get a lot of visitors from

around the South Island,” Mr

Duff said.

pleased with the announcement Kyle Park will be cleaned.

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.

Riccarton High celebrates 60 years

• By Anan Zaki

RICCARTON HIGH School is

turning 60 tomorrow.

The co-ed school opened on

October 31, 1958, with a roll of

142 students.

For the celebration, the school

organised tours for past alumni

on Saturday and a get-together at

Riccarton Racecourse.

Principal Neil Haywood said

there had been a lot of interest in

the celebrations with 260 people

registered for the tour and 230

people registered for the supper.

Mr Haywood said celebrating

the school’s birthday is a time to

not only reflect but look to the

future.

“In terms of our school, the

words for the old boys and old

girls of the school is the school is

in good heart and there are some

exciting developments coming to

the school,” he said.

Though no plans have been

confirmed, the school is planning

to replace its older buildings

starting from 2020.

But the school ruled out open

plan classrooms.

The values of the school have

also not been forgotten, Mr Haywood

said.

“What we call the Riccarton

way is still very strong in the

education Chris Nielson and head girl Apoorva Patelkhana, 17.

value-based system that underpins

everything we do.”

The school’s values are respect,

commitment, excellence and

honesty, he said.

“It’s something we believe

in, something quite genuine

amongst the school community,”

Mr Haywood said.

A strong point for the school

throughout its history has been

it’s multiculturalism, he said.

“To be multicultural is a real

asset to us . . . it brings with it

some challenges, increasing

number of students who need

intensive English support,” Mr

Haywood said.

“But having such a dynamic,

diverse community with more

than 50 ethnicities,” he said.

Survey a bid to help evacuation plan

• 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

Matthew

Hughes

response that took

place following

the magnitude 7.8

earthquake nearly

two years ago.

Matthew Hughes, one of

the academics overseeing the

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 the really crucial part of

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

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.

Eco-Warriors in national final

• By Anan Zaki

AN OAKLANDS School

team has made it to the final

of a national problem solving

competition.

The team, named Eco-

Warriors, entered the Future

Problem Solving New Zealand

competition in March.

They had to

solve a community

problem

and the

Eco-Warriors

chose to focus

on waste reduction

in the

Caroline

Martin

community.

The team

is made up of

nine pupils aged between nine

and 11 years-old.

Eco-Warriors coach and Oaklands

School deputy principal

Caroline Martin said the idea

was to encourage pupils to take

action in the community.

“We looked at newspaper articles,

including the Western News

and we just looked at issues in

the community. It was around

that time that supermarkets

were saying they were going to

do away with plastic bags,” Mrs

Martin said.

The team then researched on

plastic, what damage it causes to

oceans and landfills.

“The kids decided they would

try to get rid of plastic rubbish

from our school and our community,”

Mrs Martin said.

Regardless of the result, the

team were proud to have made a

difference, she said.

“We cleaned Westlake Park

and are we’re now discussing

putting signs up on the park

explaining the birds in the area,”

Mrs Martin said.

The team also held rubbish

free lunchtimes, sold reusable

bags and held presentations to

educate the community.

The final will be held from

Friday to Sunday in Auckland.

To enter the final the Eco-

Warriors had to put in a submission

highlighting why they

should be in the final.

In the final, the team have to

create a display board, a scrapbook

and an oral presentation

about their projects.

If the team win the

competition they will qualify

to compete in the international

final in Massachusetts, United

States.

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

regional and national sections of

ON STAGE: Quinn Kueppers (second from left) and St Margaret’s College student Ruby

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

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

SCHOOLS

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 two-week theatrical

programme will see the students

take part in 12 rehearsals with

Globe director Tim Walker

before they perform for the

public.

Ratepayers’ front up for board

Fire rages, homes at risk

meeting food

WHAT HAS BEEN SPENT

ON FOOD:

• By Anan Zaki

COMMUNITY board members

have chomped through just

over $49,000 of biscuits, candy

and savouries since they were

elected.

The biggest spender was

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board.

The nine members have

eaten food to the value of

$10,000.

That is the catering bill

ratepayers have funded for

community board meetings since

the election in 2016.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora defended the

expenses.

He said

catering at

meetings is a

“necessity.”

Community

boards meet

every two to

three weeks,

Mike Mora

but take a

recess from

January to December.

“I don’t think it’s right for

people sitting for two or three

hours with hunger pains,” Mr

Mora said.

Mr Mora said the food was

also available to city council staff

members and members of the

public who attended meetings.

“Personally, I think it’s for

the wider benefit of everybody

who attends the meeting to

be able to have a sandwich, a

savoury or a bit of fruit,” Mr

Mora said.

Board deputy chairwoman

Helen

Broughton

was “shocked”

to learn her

board was the

top spender.

She said the

Helen

Broughton

board will

discuss the

food expenses

in two weeks.

“We’re going to have to have

a serious discussion – does it

continue at all or does it continue

at a lesser level?” Ms Broughton

said. “It’s far too much to be

spending,” she said.

Ms Broughton also said the

board never made it clear to

members of the public attending

meetings they could share in

the food. Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood

Community

Board spent

the least on

catering.

The board

only caters

for meetings

Sam

MacDonald

which have a

“substantial”

agenda or if

it is combined with other

boards.

Chairman Sam MacDonald

said the board decided early into

its current term that catering

meetings was not a good use of

ratepayers’ money.

“I think the reality is that in

any workplace, [catering is] not

something that’s readily available

or readily offered.”

Mr MacDonald said the food

that’s usually provided are

biscuits and lollies.

“We were just cognisant of

the fact that in the end, we

represent the community and

are outcomes focused

and we need to be mindful

with ratepayers’ funds,” Mr

MacDonald said.

A variety of caterers are used

by the community boards, and

sometimes the food is purchased

from supermarkets, city council

head of community support,

governance and partnership John

Filsell said.

Southern ChiropraCtiC

3 kennedys bush rd, halswell (upstairs)

Chiropractic treatment promotes

wellness and happiness

Southern Chiropractic specialist André

Grob loves nothing more than to help

people.

With 17 years of experience treating

people with a range of spinal problems,

he has a deep understanding of the

value and benefits that his chiropractic

practice can offer clients experiencing

pain.

A high percentage of the patients

André treats suffer from lower back

and neck pain, followed closely by mid

back pain. He says some pain such

as headaches or shoulder pain often

comes from other places, and it’s

about finding and treating the source.

André believes that not only does

chiropractic treatment help relieve pain

but when applied regularly it also helps

promote an overall feeling of wellness

and happiness.

“When clients first come to the clinic,”

says André, “the first thing I do is to

take the time to find out what the

problem is. The aim is to treat the pain

and make them comfortable.” Once

the patient is better, he says it’s then

up to the patient to decide if they want

to come back for further or regular

chiropractic treatment. This could

be weekly, monthly or bi-annually

depending on what they want.

André says that in the USA chiropractic

treatment is listed third among the

most beneficial natural therapies

available. Used as an ongoing

preventative treatment, it offers a

holistic approach to overall wellbeing.

Keeping up with the latest trends and

developments in his field is vital to

André; however, he says it’s about

what works best for his clients. He

offers not only hands-on manipulation

of the spine but also soft tissue

massage, which some patients prefer.

He also utilises the modality of laser

treatment to assist the traditional

approach and an activator instrument,

which can be used more precisely

instead of hands.

Over the years André has successfully

treated an extensive client base

with ages ranging from school-age

children through to 90+ year-olds. He

enjoys the down-to-earth professional

relationships he has with each patient

and says delivering the chiropractic

service and getting people better is

what it’s all about.

Also, if he can’t help, he will refer his

patients to a professional who can.

If you have back pain and are looking for a committed, passionate, and caring chiropractic practitioner, call André today on 03 322 1432. Based in halswell at 3 Kennedys Bush Road,

Southern Chiropractic also runs a clinic every Tuesday in Ashburton.

Horrack on Parker’s under-card

Strikeforce boxer training

for bout on December 15

• By Jacob Page

HALWELL’S Strikeforce boxer

Bjorn Horrack will trade a roof

for the ring to be on the undercard

for Joseph Parker’s bout

against United States-Mexican

Alexander Flores at Horncastle

Arena.

The 29-year-old is a roofer

by trade but has competed in

boxing, kickboxing and mixed

martial arts since he was 21.

He will take on fellow

Cantabrian Quintin Poole on

December 15 at the Round 12

Boxing and Fitness Centre in the

central city.

Horrack will compete in a

corporate bout consisting of

three 2min rounds.

“The talk is we’ll be opening

the night, which is a bit of fun,”

he said. “I’ll have a few mates

going so it’ll be great to be out

there.”

Cantabrians Bowyn Morgan

(18-1) – a two-weight national

champion and IBO Asia Pacific

welterweight champion –

and Nort Beauchamp (17-2),

who is the IBO Oceania super

featherweight champion, will

also be on the card.

The former Cashmere High

School student practiced jiu jitsu

in his early 20s at the Strikeforce

Gym before taking an MMA

bout on a week’s notice for his

first taste of competitive combat.

“I’d always loved mixed

martial arts and have combined

that with kickboxing and boxing

over the years,”

Horrack last competed on

the Pacific Warrior II card

at the Hagley Events Centre

last month. But he said the

upcoming bout would be the

biggest of his life.

“Obviously there will be a few

more people having a look and

tuning in to see how we go,” he

said.

Horrack, who weighs in at

100kg, said he expected to give

up at least 30kg to Poole.

He said he had a few options

on how to combat his opponent’s

size and one was to simply try to

outlast him.

“He’ll try to use his size to lean

on me and make things difficult,

but the longer it goes, it may

work in my favour.”

Coach Steve Brown said

Horrack had a big heart and

they would be working on not

only his physical preparation but

also a mental approach to deal

with boxing at a big event.

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 (right)

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.

The move

was signalled at

the Canterbury

annual meeting

in May with

the recognition

confirmed last

Jeff

Whittaker

Tuesday October 30 2018

week.

Whittaker

played 22 seasons

for Halswell before retiring in

1987. He played in Halswell’s

1985 17-16 grand-final victory

over Hornby. He also made

several Canterbury and South

island age-group teams as a

player but his involvement in the

sport continued well past his onfield

days.

After coaching a string of

Halswell junior teams, he

became a coach and selector for

countless Canterbury and New

Zealand age-group rep teams

from 1992 until only a few years

ago.

In other awards, Riccarton’s

Tony Grenfell was named

volunteer of the year. Halswell’s

Michelle Harding was named

administrator of the year.

Hornby’s Graeme Langley was

named manager of the year.

BIG YEAR: Hornby’s Brad Campbell was named Canterbury

Bulls rookie of the year at the Canterbury Rugby League

Awards on Friday night.

On the field, Hornby halfback

Brad Campbell was named

Canterbury Bulls rookie of the

year and captain and clubmate

James Baxendale was named

Canterbury Bulls sportsman of

the year. Fellow Hornby forward

Rulon Nutira was named Bulls’

players’ player of the year.

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.

See you at the open home or to arrange

a private viewing of this property call

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.”

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

The mediation agr ement

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

South Sharp Blacks team.

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 bi ger 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.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

has b en given the gr en ligh to

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

qua ry.

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 quarries

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
