Pensioners last chance to save bus route

• By Ashleigh Monk

FRUSTRATED residents of a

Mairehau retirement village will

have one last chance to get a bus

to stop on their doorstep.

Diana Isaac Retirement

Village residents have been

fighting since March to get the

No 44 bus to stop at their village

after Environment Canterbury

decided to re-route the Orbiter

which previously ran past it.

ECan said last month it would

not re-route the No 44 through

some residential streets, leaving

residents of the retirement village

having to travel 1km to the

nearest bus stop.

But ECan will meet again with

the residents tomorrow to hear

their concerns.

The re-route would have

included travelling to and from

Innes Rd via Philpotts Rd,

Glenfield Cres, Roslyn Ave,

Croziers Rd, Ranger St and

MEETING: Diana Isaac Retirement

Village residents will meet with ECan

tomorrow to voice their concerns about

the proposed bus route changes.

Nancy Ave.

Retirement village resident

Graham Tate said he was

surprised when ECan announced

the route would not change, as it

had given a “strong indication”

that it would.

Congestion

concerns

over

removal of

Langdons

Rd parking

• By Ashleigh Monk

A PROPOSAL to remove

on-street car parking along

Langdons Rd could cause

congestion on residential side

streets.

The Papanui-Innes

Community Board will vote on

whether to approve the proposal

to remove the parking from part

of Langdons Rd in front of a new

retail development.

Community board member

John Stringer said he would vote

against the change.

“No parking road restrictions

in front of the second stage

of Langdons Rd retail

development will push street

parking onto residential side

streets.”

Mr Stringer said he thought

residents in the area would be

firmly against the proposal.

“It only repeats the issues

confronting Marble Wood

Drive residents on Harewood

Rd, where time limits are now

proposed because of heavy

parking in that cul-de-sac.”

He recently voiced his concerns

over the changes and upgrades

happening in the Papanui area.

get in touch

from the editor’s desk

JOHN STRINGER continues to go into bat

for Papanui.

The community board member speaks

out in our weekly Soapbox column on

page 8 today over what he says are “intrusive

city council processes.” Stringer says there’s

far too much bureaucracy and reports from city council HQ in

Hereford St, which is strangling Papanui.

He goes as far as to say the city council “must be careful it does

not become a bureaucratic staff-driven ‘earthquake’ in one of

Christchurch’s oldest residential suburbs.”

Stringer doesn’t always endear himself to his fellow Papanui-

Innes Community Board members.

That’s because he speaks out publicly and what he says doesn’t

always agree with the thinking of others.

But that, as I’ve said before, is democracy.

Residents want truck ban

• By Ashleigh Monk

TRUCKS COULD be banned

from some Belfast streets if

residents get their way.

It comes after a Sefton

St resident approached the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board to voice

concerns over trucks driving

through and parking on her

street.

Community

board

chairman Sam

MacDonald

said staff

would look

into options

for heavy vehicle

restrictions

Sam

MacDonald

on Sefton St,

Englefield Rd

and Lagan St.

“Ali has

been working with Harewood

councillor Aaron Keown on

her concerns over the impacts

of heavy vehicles in Sefton and

neighbouring streets,” he

said.

“As is normal practice we have

asked our roading engineers to

look into the issue and consider

any options that may be available.

Staff will report back to the

board on this.”

OPTIONS: Residents in Belfast want to impose heavy vehicle restriction to prevent trucks from

driving through their residential streets.

Belfast Area Residents’ Association

member Gavin Stanbury

said trucks in residential streets

had been an issue for “many

years”.

“There are a number of small

side streets that are being used

by the trucks . . . the trucks often

take short-cuts, especially if the

main roads had heavy traffic

and they want to get somewhere

quickly,” he said.

“If they park on one side of a

street, it makes it very difficult

for cars to get past as the streets

are quite narrow.”

He said he and other

residents had approached the

council about the issue in the

past.

“We’ve had members of our

association phone up and complain,

it happens every now and

again, and it goes away

OPTION

for a wee

ONE

while then it comes back again.

It’s not a permanent solution.”

Mr Stanbury said he didn’t

think the use of side streets by

trucks would continue for much

longer.

“Because we’ve got the new

Western Belfast Bypass, there

are more trucks using that now.

There aren’t quite as many using

Belfast if they’re going into town

or to Lyttelton.”

Langdons Rd parking woes

•From page 1

Mr Stringer was particularly

concerned about the Main North

Rd bus priority project.

He said the on-street parking

changes would “wreck” Papanui

village and turn it into a

thoroughfare.

Papanui Business Community

member and Super

Liquor owner Carolyn

Moffat said

businesses in the

area had already

experienced issues

with staff parking

Pauline

Cotter

on side streets.

“Further up

Langdons Rd, that’s

where a lot of staff would be

parking and so if you’re removing

that parking, you’re forcing

people into those side streets,” she

said.

“Staff at businesses around here

are not allowed to park in the

customer car parks . . . you’ll end

up getting residents wanting time

restrictions in those side streets.”

Innes Ward city councillor

Pauline Cotter said she hoped the

new retail development would

provide sufficient car parking for

the area.

“The new development will

provide 754 car parks, including

18 disability parks, which is

massive. Currently, I think a lot

of the car parking on the street

is being used by contractors

working on the site, so I don’t

know if it will be an issue once

construction finishes.”

Papanui Ward city councillor

Mike Davidson said the proposal

will go out for consultation before

a decision is made.

“Any decisions on this stretch

of Langdons Rd needs to follow

correct process, which includes

engaging and consulting with the

community before any decision is

made by the community board.

Naturally, I want the road to be

safe and accessible for everyone

in the community,” he said.

“As shown with the Main

North Rd bus priority project,

this community board values

consultation and the input from

NO SPACE:

On-street

car parking

could be

removed

from part of

Langdons

Rd if the

Innes

Community

Board

proposal.

community.”

Langdons Rd Barnardos

Christchurch spokeswoman

said the loss of on-street parking

would greatly affect people who

use their services.

“With a staff of around 30-40

per day and four meeting rooms

we continuously have clients

rolling through for meetings.

We also hold supervised sessions

where one party needs a secure

close point for drop off and often

because of the high security

risk we need to visually note the

visiting party is not on site at the

same time,” she said.

“We also hold group

programmes, large

multidisciplinary huis, and

trainings. So parking is already

an issue for our staff and clients.”

Rangi’s Movember breakfast

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School students had a “fantastic”

morning at their Movember father daughter breakfast

on Thursday. Speaking through a bushy pink moustache,

principal Sandra Hastie said “everyone had a lot of fun

Last week I presented my

submission in Parliament to

save the Northern Christchurch

motorway extension. National’s

announcement last year of a

four-lane highway from Belfast

to Pegasus, with separation of

traffic from the other direction

and a Woodend Bypass, was

greeted with relief by motorists

and residents. However, with

the current Government’s shift

in priorities to Auckland public

transport, the motorway was left

off NZTA’s 10-year plan. We are

enjoying significant results from

the Greater Christchurch motorway

projects delivered under National

and Government needs to commit

to this second stage.

I enjoyed visiting mental-health

service providers in Christchurch

$140m retirement home for Redwood

Burlington

set to open

in March

LIFESTYLE: The $140 million

Burlington retirement

village will open in March at

Redwood.

A NEW $140 million retirement

village, led by well-known

businessman and Ryman

Healthcare founder John Ryder,

will open in March in Redwood.

Burlington is a high-end

lifestyle village – the second

to be opened in Christchurch

by Qestral Corporation – led

by Mr Ryder

as executive

chairman and

managing

director Simon

O’Dowd,

a national

chairman of the

NZ Aged Care

Association.

John Ryder

Set on 14ha,

Burlington

features 3ha of

man-made lakes.

The company is incorporating

innovative architecture and

new technical and recreational

concepts – with large footprints

for independent, stand alone,

two and three-bedroom houses.

Qestral also owns the popular

Alpine View Lifestyle Village in

Waitikiri, where development is

drawing to a close.

Mr Ryder says the Burlington

site is close to Main North

Rd with easy access to retail

facilities. “It is probably the

most exciting retirement village

development that I have been

involved in – and I have been

involved in a few.”

Designed by architects Kerry

Mason and Huia Rerita of +MAP

Architects, Burlington comprises

200 houses, a 60-bed, standalone

rest home and hospital

centre, a 20-bedroom dementia

care complex and 40 serviced

apartments.

It will also include a lodge and

clubhouse with a hairdresser, bar,

restaurant, bakery, church, movie

theatre, gymnasium and indoor

swimming pool. Burlington will

be offering apartments in the

care and dementia units.

Construction is well under

way. Mr O’Dowd says the

retirement village market is

changing rapidly.

“People want something

individual and different – they

want on-site facilities, and design

they can be personally proud

of, with plenty of space but the

very best in integrated care. We

are not cramping the site and

will have no buildings over two

storeys high.”

Mr Ryder has experience as the

joint chief executive of Ryman

Healthcare for 18 years, while

Mr O’Dowd has led the NZ Aged

Care Association for 22 years.

MacFarlane

Park damaged

by fireworks

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE NEW MacFarlane Park

Centre has been the target of

irresponsible firework use.

In a Facebook post, the

Shirley Community Trust said

scorch marks had been found

on the centre’s new car parking

area after Guy Fawkes night on

December 5.

It also said used fireworks had

been littered all over MacFarlane

Park.

“Today, three lovely ladies

went and removed seven bags

of firework rubbish off the park

area. This area of the park is

used on Wednesday afternoons

for lots of primary school children

playing touch,” the post

said.

“All I am asking is that people

be responsible with fireworks.

That includes safety-wise and

getting rid of your rubbish . . .

having fun is cool as long as you

tidy up after your fun activity.”

The new MacFarlane Park

Centre opened Acheson Ave site

in early September.

The MacFarlane Park Centre

was used as the temporary St

Albans Community Centre on

Colombo St before moving to

Shirley.

Totara award for Burnside High head boy

• By Ashleigh Monk

BURNSIDE HIGH School’s head

boy has been recognised for his

work in the community.

Eighteen-year-old Gray Ryburn

was presented with a Rotary

young totara award.

The award, which was presented

by Richie McCaw, came

with a totara tree which would

be planted on Burnside High

School’s grounds.

Gray said he felt “humbled” to

receive the award.

“It was a bit of a surprise. Mr

Robertson, who is the principal

of the senior division at school,

the email came through to him

and then he nominated me for

an award and sent them a wee

write up about me, and then I got

invited to the awards night which

was awesome,” he said.

“I feel very privileged to have

that award. It’s very, very cool,

but I’m not the sort of person to

gloat about it. Seeing the work

that Rotary do, and being able

to meet all sorts of people in the

community who are making a

positive difference was great.”

As head boy, Gray was involved

in several community events and

initiatives.

He said the head prefect team

at Burnside High School organised

a Shave for a Cure event

WINNER: Burnside High School student and head boy Gray

Ryburn was presented the Young Totara Award by Richie

McCaw.

which saw 27 students chop their

locks off, held a concert to raise

awareness for mental health, and

networked with other school

leaders around the city.

“Being head boy has been a

really humbling experience. It’s

been quite a busy year but really

rewarding.”

He said he was inspired by the

work that Rotary did in the community.

“There was a dinner, so I had a

chance to talk to some of the people

who have been with Rotary

for 30 years or so, and the service

they’ve put in is awesome,” he

said.

“I’m aspiring to hopefully

someday be like that and be a

positive influence for people.”

Next year, Gray plans on

studying for a Bachelor of Arts in

political science and a Bachelor

of Commerce in management at

Victoria University.

The business excellence

award this year was received by

Christchurch Helicopters for providing

helicopter pilot training in

New Zealand.

Receiving the vocational excellence

award that recognised a

high standard of excellence was

Andy Ashby from Peter Timbs

Meats in Bishopdale.

Community service award recipients

were Donna Sutherland,

Jill Newton and Peter Isle from

the Coffin Club.

The Coffin Club was a volunteer

group focusing on lower cost

caskets for all people and supported

the women’s hospital for

still births and cot deaths.

FUN: A

playground

at St

Andrew’s

College

has won an

award of

excellence.

Accolade for St Andrew’s

College playground

ST ANDREW’S College has

received an excellence award for

its playground.

The Learning Environment

NZ accolade for excellence in

educational facilities –

landscape/outdoor learning

was awarded to the school at a

ceremony.

Jasmax landscape architects

worked closely with St Andrew’s

staff and play consultant, Tina

Dyer, to design the playground

which is a fun play space and

helps students learn with an

emphasis on sustainability.

Said Jasmax lead landscape

architect Adrian Taylor: “We

want students to engage with

the environment through a

variety of ways. There are student

gardens to educate on nature and

growing food, and surface water

is collected and flows through

boulders providing a play element

in rainy weather.”

Catering for ages two to seven,

Mr Taylor said the playground

was designed to help transition

students from pre-school into the

junior environment. This helps

them gain confidence and test

their surroundings.

Preparatory school principal

and deputy rector Jonathan

Bierwirth said the finished

product was “pure excitement for

the children”.

“We are delighted with

how they interact with all

aspects of the playground.

We particularly like how the

environment encourages the

children to just play and have

fun.”

•From page 1

Said Mr Tate: “To our shock,

we were informed by ECan that

the agreement we thought had

been reached was now no longer

possible. This means the 600

residents and nearly 300 staff of

this village will not have access

to a bus service within acceptable

walking distance.”

He said residents planned

on discussing possible

solutions with ECan,

including having a

turning bay on Philpotts

Rd so the bus can

travel back towards the

village.

“We’re determined to

do something about it,”

Readers respond to

the news a signalised

pedestrian crossing will

be installed outside St

Andrew’s College on

Papanui Rd

Helen Cox – There’s no crossing

outside my daughter’s school

but they still use a road patrol.

I’m all for the signalised crossing

but I wonder why they couldn’t

do road patrol?

Nicholas Smeaton – Oh

great, a private school asks for a

signalised pedestrian crossing

and gets it straight away, while at

the same time, the city council

refuses to install traffic lights at

the Harewood/Breens/Gardiners

Rds intersection.

Alexia Chisholm – It’s not

just private school kids who

cross. There are lots of schools in

that area. With the bus lane and

many bikes going along the side,

it’s not safe at all for kids to cross

here, even when cars let them in,

so I think this is a great idea.

Readers respond to the

revelation that more than

$49,000 was spent on catering

Democracy ‘strangled’ in Papanui

Papanui-

Innes

Community

Board

member

John

Stringer

writes about how he

believes Papanui is being

strangled by reports and

bureaucracy

IS PAPANUI being strangled by

intrusive city council processes of

change and a wave of reports? I

think it is.

City councillor Aaron

Keown of Harewood said

recently: “Democracy is being

strangled by process.” As

reported in last week’s Nor’West

News, I asked “we are supposedly

a city in recovery, why so much

change to a largely unaffected

area of Christchurch?”

The city council must be

careful it does not become

a bureaucratic, staff-driven

‘earthquake’ in one of

Christchurch’s oldest residential

suburbs.

There is now a city council

plan suggesting major changes

to Harewood Rd (Harewood

Rd corridor study findings and

recommendations – June 20,

2017), which is defined as a

strategic west-east cycle route and

a “north-west city corridor.”

There are proposals for more

lights, pedestrian crossings,

possible cycle-lanes and the

removal of on street car parking

– all initiatives yet to be go

out for public consultation.

It must be noted, that

the “endorsement” of the staff

study by the board last week was

not to show support for these

changes necessarily, just for the

study to go forward.

Several of us have detailed

concerns.

There have been bus route

changes, changes to bus stops,

and a lot of parking changes

to streets like Main North

Rd, Tuckers Rd, Prestons Rd,

Momorangi Cres, and Hills Rd to

name just a few.

FOCUS: A crash, which blocked Harewood Rd last week, brings

into focus the traffic debates and issues confronting Papanui,

says John Stringer.

There was the recent

controversial city council vote

to insert dedicated bus and bike

lanes through Papanui village

(bus priority proposal – 25 July),

affecting local residents and

businesses and changing our

retail village forever.

I fought this proposal, as I

felt the narrow needs of bus

commuters and cyclists saving

40-plus seconds on commuter

travel times did not outweigh

local parking needs, especially

for the large demographic

population of mobile elderly in

Papanui.

Then there was last week’s city

council decision to ignore the

vote of the combined Papanui-

Innes and Burwood-Coastal

community boards not to change

speed limits at the new Prestons

sub-division to 40km/h.

The city council has now

imposed five different speed

limits on those locals within a

1-2km radius. Ridiculous and

intrusive.

For more than a year now,

the board has been seeking a

traffic audit of Papanui (CCC

city services team planning and

delivery [transport] – October 9).

An interim report has been

received behind closed doors. It

discusses a number of changes to

roading and traffic issues in our

community, but these cannot be

discussed here until the report is

tabled publicly. That process has

been far too long in coming –

democracy strangled by process?

The Cranford St off-ramp

and the Northern Corridor and

Waimakariri bridge changes are

clearly huge changes to our area,

especially for Edgeware and St

Albans, as traffic funnels into

those communities.

Issues like this propelled Garry

Moore into local politics.

There is a plan for changes

to Langdons Rd (Langdons Rd

proposed roading improvements

consultation plan – October 25)

due to the light industrial growth

there, much of it transferred

from other parts of Christchurch

due to the earthquakes. There

Beautiful Teeth

Meet the

Owner

Ryan Carlton

Natural Smile

are proposals to remove large

swathes of on-street parking.

In the meantime, most of the

side-streets around Langdons Rd

are already filled to capacity with

tight car parking.

There are discussions over

changes to the Harewood/

Breens/Gardiners intersection,

which took several hours of time

at a recent city council meeting.

The Harewood board

advocates strongly for lights, a

proposal I oppose in favour of

a roundabout, as per the much

busier Harewood/Russley Rds

intersection 1km up the road.

The Harewood/Greers Rds

intersection – a stone’s throw

from my residence – is a key

discussion point in many of the

traffic reports.

An accident there that blocked

Harewood Rd last Tuesday

morning brings in to focus

the traffic debates and issues

confronting Papanui as a result

of car parking and traffic changes

pushed westward into our

community in response to city

council changes to Main North

Rd, and the Papanui High School

and Northlands mall expansions,

both on Langdons Rd.

Obviously there is a lot of

change. Local boards and the city

council have to plan and respond.

But that must be balanced with

time-managed layering on top of

locals.

City council initiatives that are

not additionally needed, such

as suggested cycleways down

Harewood Rd or removing

parking from Langdons Rd, when

we are already experiencing a lot

of change, have to be debated.

Please let Papanui breathe.

We’ve had enough change these

last eight years. Don’t strangle us

with process.

Spelling success for Bernadette

• By Ashleigh Monk

A PASSION for books has earned

a St Albans home-schooled

student a runner up spot at the

New Zealand Spelling Bee.

Fifteen-year-old Bernadette

Barrett was one of three runnersup

in the competition last week.

She said her talent for

words came from her love of

reading.

“Lord of the Rings is my

absolute favourite book,” she said.

“I’ve been reading books since I

was little. I’ve read a lot of books.

It’s one of my favourite things to

do. Because I’ve read so much,

I’ve been exposed to a lot of

different words, so spelling came

naturally.”

Bernadette battled it out with

19 of New Zealand’s top spellers

at the spelling bee national

final at the City Art Gallery in

Wellington.

The competition started with a

written classroom test, followed

by six regional semi-finals held

around the country in which the

top 200 spellers competed for a

place in the finals.

Bernadette said she spent

a lot of time in the lead-up to

the competition practicing her

spelling.

She said she was provided with

a list of hundreds of words that

could appear in the finals, but

her final word was one she didn’t

recognise.

“It was just in the last part of

the finals where I got a word

that I didn’t know. The word was

ignominy, but I spelt it i-g-n-o-mo-n-y.”

Ignominy is a noun referring

to someone who was shamed or

disgraced.

Hanleys Essential Dog Roll

• Pure meat Formulated for dogs

• No chemicals

• No fillers

• Contains 18% protein

But in spite of not nabbing the

top spot, Bernadette said she was

pleased with her achievement.

“I was in the finals last year,

and when I didn’t win I was

really disappointed. But this year

I was a lot more relaxed about it,

I didn’t care how I went as long

as I made it through the first few

rounds. So when I came runnerup,

I was really shocked.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Air guns at Bottle

Lake lead to

police call out

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

POLICE WERE called to Bottle

Lake Forest after walkers raised

concerns about rabbits being

hunted with guns.

They found two men in possession

of an air gun at about 7.50pm

on October 28.

No charges were laid, but advice

was given to the men about using

air guns in public places. A police

spokesman said rabbit hunting

was not a common problem at the

forest.

Queenspark resident Jan

Sekihara said she was “shocked”

when she saw a man with what

appeared to be a hunting rifle

about 100m from the forest

entrance on the Lima Rd side.

“I was petrified, it was the first

time I had ever seen a gun, whether

it be hunting or not. I saw the

gun and I was really frightened

for my safety and the safety of my

dog,” she said.

Many families were out walking

at the time, she said. Mrs Sekihara

was concerned her schnoodle,

which was off lead at the time

could be mistaken for a rabbit.

“It just pays for people to be

aware there are some people out

there without any commonsense.

They have no respect for rules.”

A healthier diet

for your pets

The Feedshack grew almost 10 years ago

from a family tragedy we hear about too

often. Our family dog (Samantha a golden

lab) died early, riddled with cancer and

arthritis.

It wasn’t until this happened that we

decided to question the diet we had fed her

with and whether this had contributed to

her health problems.

A lot of research and investigation

resulted in our belief that this could have

been prevented (or minimized at worst)

with a healthier diet and better education

on our part. Looking at the ingredient

listings on today’s dog food available in

the market and understanding what

they mean, most are more suitable

for chickens than dogs.

Our philosophy is about

preventing (where possible)

disease rather than treating it.

This is reflected in the foods

we sell (and don’t sell) on our

shelves.

As we see in increase in the

number of pet illnesses, we see

this as more important than

Burnside student in

lead role as opera

returns to the city

A BURNSIDE High School

student is set to star in the first

opera put on by Christchurch

residents since the earthquakes.

Grant Weihs will play the title

role in the nativity story Amahl

and the Night Visitors

on Saturday.

The production

marks the first time

in almost 10 years

– when The Magic

Flute was on stage in

2009 – that a locallyproduced

opera

has been offered

to Christchurch

audiences.

United States

composer Gian Carlo Menotti

wrote Amahl and the Night

Visitors in the early 1950s. It is

centred around a young disabled

boy called Amahl, who is played

by Grant.

The show is a one-act opera

about Amahl, who has a

fondness for tall tales.

His mother has to live with his

active imagination, but is also at

her wit’s end trying to put food

on the table and secure a future

Grant Weihs

for her son. After Amahl tells

his mother about a star “bigger

than a window” over their roof,

she retires to bed, but then three

kings turn up on the doorstep

looking for somewhere to stay

for the night. They are

fed and entertained, and

offer Amahl a chance for a

better life.

The play will have a

family-oriented matinee

performance at 2pm on

Saturday.

It will then be on stage

again during an evening

programme of handpicked

seasonal choral

music starting at 7.30pm at

the The Piano: Centre for Music

and the Arts.

Produced and directed by

Broadway veteran Ravil Atlas,

and featuring the Atlas Voices

Ensemble, the evening will end

with the New Zealand premier of

Hodie by US composer Z Randall

Stroope, complete with brass

octet, organ and percussion.

•Tickets for both

performances are available

Mystery revealed behind Walnut Ave

Papanui Heritage group

chairman Murray Williams

tries to get to the bottom

of how Walnut Ave got its

name

FOR THOSE interested in

the background stories of

Christchurch streets, a good

starting point is the excellent

on-line site created by

Christchurch City Libraries.

This resource traces the origin

of city streets, the stories behind

their names and the reasons for

any subsequent name changes.

However, it is inevitable in a

resource of this complexity that

there will be occasional errors.

For example, looking up

‘Walnut Ave’ in the CCL site

we read that this south Papanui

street came into existence in 1926

as the new name for St Andrew’s

Tce, a change prompted because

of the confusion with nearby St

Andrew’s Square.

But under ‘Hartley Ave’ we

find a statement that St Andrew’s

Tce was renamed Hartley Ave in

1938. The primary evidence cited

certainly verifies the latter claim.

The answer to the confusion

lies in an ambiguous newspaper

article in The Press on June 22,

1926, which obviously misled the

compiler of the CCL resource.

MYSTERY: Murray Wiliams investigates how Walnut Ave got its name.

The article, titled ‘Alterations

Approved’, listed a number of

streets subject to possible name

changes, one of which was ‘St

Andrews Tce to be renamed

Walnut Ave.’

However, the article also noted

that in a petition, 11 ratepayers

and property-holders objected on

the grounds that the suggested

new name was not acceptable to

them.

The introduction to the article

had explained that any projected

changes that generated objections

were not proceeded with, in other

words the name change did not

go ahead in 1926.

So when and where was

Walnut Ave established?

The Post Office Directory

of 1939 has no record of its

existence. Although by 1947,

Stone’s Directory mentions it as

running off Hawthorne Ave and

having 12 developed lots, nine of

which were houses on the eastern

side of the street.

An analysis of these houses

reveals that the majority are

examples of designs common in

the 1940s, although some have

since been modified.

Based on this evidence, the best

answer appears to be that the

street was developed sometime

in the mid-1940s, an example of

the post-World War 2 building

boom.

Anecdotally, Walnut Ave was

named after a large walnut tree

somewhere in this area of south

Papanui, but there is another

interesting point about this

street’s name. The term ‘avenue’

usually indicates some form

of tree planting adjacent to the

street. Whether such a feature

ever existed in Walnut Ave is

not clear but there is no current

evidence that it ever did.

Perhaps a reader with a long

memory could enlighten us

by emailing ashleigh.monk@

starmedia.kiwi.

Experience Ara provides high school

For high school students

choosing a future career

can be a daunting prospect. To

give students a chance to try

before they buy, Ara Institute of

Canterbury has expanded their

programme of taster sessions

to cater for juniors picking their

NCEA subjects, as well as seniors

figuring out their next steps.

Imagine trying out being a web

developer for a day, a performing

arts student at NASDA, or an

engineer. Experience Ara is aiding students to

close the gap between reading about something

and actually giving it a go.

The Experience Ara programme has proven

hugely successful in providing high school

students with a taste of tertiary study, and a

hands-on way to explore their interests. In

2018, 2344 students have registered to 269

events offered in a range of tertiary subjects

including Science, Creative Industries, Trades

and Business. Out of all the young people who

registered for Experience Ara 2018, 911 have

applied to study with Ara in 2019.

Due to high demand, the new programme

for 2019 has even more occurrences and a

broader variety of events. For 2019, Ara has

proposed 242 events, with exciting new additions

such as Introduction to Medical Imaging,

Diving into Data Computing Taster and Builder

for a Day.

Advertorial

Emma West, Ara Engagement Manager said,

“By providing a range of experiential opportunities,

in subject areas that align with employment

opportunities, we are playing a part in

helping young people to make big decisions.”

A year 13 from Catholic Cathedral College

who attended the Re: Structure Portfolio

Workshop for students interested in architecture

said they appreciated the personal

guidance that it gave them, and they now

have “clear knowledge of the course they want

to take.”

Ara is not only the largest tertiary institute in

the South Island, it’s also one of the top-ranking

institutes in New Zealand, with one of the

highest course completion rates in the country.

Students can register online to attend junior

taster sessions (years 9-10), senior taster

sessions (years 11-13), holiday workshops,

and NCEA credited STAR courses.

Sami caps top year on the bike

NEED FOR

SPEED: Leona

Jones won the

under-12 age

group at the

Australian ice

speed skating

champs in

Melbourne.

LAURA

JONES

Emmanuel school pupil

takes speed skating title

• By Jacob Page

WHEN Emmanuel Christian

School pupil Leona Jones first

went ice skating, she spent most

of her time falling down – but

now she’s winning trophies.

She trains hard and competes

at Opawa’s Canterbury Alpine

Ice Speed Skating Club, which

has paid off with her taking out

the under-12 age group at the

Australian ice speed skating

championships in Melbourne.

Leona, 11, prefers the shorter

distance races, such as the

111m, 222m, and 333m, thanks

to her fast starts.

Her mum Laura took Leona

ice skating for the first time

when she was four, expecting it

to be a one-time experience.

“She spent most of the first

time falling over and getting her

clothes absolutely soaked and I

thought she’d come off the ice

and hate it, but afterwards she

told me she absolutely loved it.”

Leona trains twice a week

on the ice, where she works on

making her legs stronger and

her technique sharper.

She also does some training at

Hagley Park away from the ice.

She said when she had her

first race as a six-year-old, she

knew the sport was for her after

she fell over but still won.

Leona said she wants to

go as far as her talent can take

her.

“I’d like to compete at the

junior world championships

when I am old enough (15) and

then the Winter Olympics is a

definite dream of mine.”

PAPANUI TRACK cyclist

Sami Donnelly is still pinching

herself over the stellar 12 months

she’s had.

The 16-year-old was the supreme

winner at the Burnside

High School

sports awards

and also won a

Zonta award.

Sami was

the youngest

member of the

New Zealand

team at the

Sami

Donnelly

junior world

championships

in Switzerland.

Having won gold at the

Oceania under-19 women’s team

pursuit last year, Sami said she is

eager to push her claim to ride in

endurance races next season.

“I’m definitely more interested

in doing endurance races and

pushing myself that way.’

Sami is the daughter of former

Olympic team pursuit cyclist,

Nigel Donnelly, who competed

in 1988 and 1992 at Seoul and

Barcelona respectively. He won

a Commonwealth Games gold

medal at the same event in

Auckland in 1990.

Sami said she was motivated by

her dad’s achievements but also

wanted to follow her own path.

“I’ve always wanted to follow in

dad’s steps,” she said. “In year 6, I

remember having to do a project

on someone I admired and I

picked him.”

Sami said she played multiple

sports when she was younger

until she was in year 8 when she

decided she needed to prioritise.

“I played every sport

imaginable – basketball, netball,

water polo, hockey – until a

physio said my body was not

handling it so I decided to cut

back to hockey and cycling.”

Later that year, she watched her

brother Felix training and she

decided to give it a go,

“I’m aware of what dad

achieved and it does drive me to

be my best,” Sami said. “Having

said that, I want to do my own

thing and I have my own coach.

“Dad’s great at letting me do

my own thing but also knowing

when he can drop in some

knowledge.”

Sami said she wanted another

shot at the under-19 world

championships next year and

was keen to do more endurance

rides.

“Even when that pain hits,

you have to find the reasons

why you ride and certainly

enjoy it.”

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 apartment 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.

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

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

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

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

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

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

Mr Mora said the community
