Chance

to dance

with the

stars of

ballet

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NOT EVERY aspiring ballet dancer

can say they have been selected to

perform with the Royal New Zealand

Ballet.

But Northcote’s Anna Lee School

of Dance student Anna McKey was

one of the lucky ones chosen to dance

in the company’s rendition of The

Nutcracker that opened last week.

The 13-year-old, who lives in

Parklands was chosen alongside 60

children to feature in the show at the

Isaac Theatre Royal last weekend.

The children will play the roles

of mice, party girls, bonbons and

fairies. Anna was picked to play

the role of one of the Mouse King’s

minions and dance in one of the

major scenes where the Mouse King

fights The Nutcracker.

She said she was very excited to

get on stage and see the Royal New

Zealand Ballet dancers perform

beside her.

“This is definitely really exciting

because I have never been able to do

a performance with the Royal New

Zealand Ballet,” she said.

Anna said her dream would be to

have a career in dance and is looking

at auditioning for the New Zealand

School of Dance in the future.

Residents

voice their

concerns

over

removal of

car parks

• By Ashleigh Monk

PAPANUI RESIDENTS and

business owners are frustrated

with the amount of parking

spaces being removed from the

area.

On-street car parking is set

to be removed from parts of

Main North and Langdons Rds,

and locals are voicing their concerns.

Sails St resident Richard Lucas

said the removal of car parking in

the area had forced workers and

shoppers to park on small side

streets in the area.

“There is already a 120min

parking restriction outside our

home and this is abused almost

on a daily basis and if the parking

is removed on Langdons Rd, as

proposed, this will only get worse,”

he said.

“Our street is virtually taken up

by Papanui High school pupils and

people who work in the area five

days a week.”

He said he would join Papanui-

Innes Community Board member

John Stringer in his battle against

the Langdons Rd proposal.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

from the reporter’s desk

ON PAGE 5 this week you’ll see an article about kids making

an effort to beautify the north-west.

This one really warmed my heart as a lover of all things clean

and green, because it’s so important that children have an active

role in the look and feel of the place they live.

Making an effort to be more involved in how our

communities looks and feel is something that improves the area

and instils a sense of respect and belonging in youngsters.

Led by Keep Christchurch Beautiful, this programme helps

schools across the city make their area a place they can be

proud of.

The combined efforts of the pupils, teachers and school caretakers

is something to be admired, and hopefully others will

follow their lead in their own communities.

Keep up the great work, guys.

Bid to improve Wooldridge Rd safety

• By Ashleigh Monk

ONE OF the city’s largest

employers is fighting to make

Wooldridge Rd in Harewood

safer for road-users.

Tait Communications, which

is based on the collector road,

approached the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board in a bid to

have no-stopping restrictions

and a flush median installed to

make the area safer.

There have

been two

reported crashes

along the section

of Wooldridge

Rd in the last five

years and four

within the last

Garry Diack

eight years.

All the

recorded crashes

were located at driveways,

with three directly outside Tait

Communications.

The proposal to install

no-stopping lines and a flush

median on the road to increase

visibility went before the

community board last month

but was voted against by six to

two.

However, the issue is back on

the agenda.

Tait Communications chief

executive Garry Diack said he

was disappointed at last month’s

vote, which went against the city

council staff recommendation.

“The daily safety risks to staff

as drivers, passengers, cyclists

and pedestrians on this stretch

of Wooldridge Rd is consistently

the most-raised health and

safety concern within our entire

business.”

“It would be a tragedy if there

were another incident, or the

death or injury of any road-user

before action is taken.”

He said Tait Communications

generated up to 1000 vehicle

movements each day, and the

loss of some on-street parking

would be justified to mitigate

safety concerns.

The city council received six

responses when the issue was

consulted on last month.

Three supported the proposal

and two opposed it. One

response did not indicate

support or opposition.

Those opposing the proposal

did so on the grounds that it

removed parking.

The recent upgrade to Russley

Rd banned the right turn from

BATTLE: Tait

Communications

is pushing for

no stopping

restrictions on

Wooldridge

Rd to improve

safety.

Wairakei Rd onto Russley Rd,

which has resulted in more

traffic using Wooldridge Rd.

Community board member

Aaron Campbell voted in favour

of the proposal.

“The board asking for staff to

investigate more options in order

to keep on-street car parking

will cost thousands of dollars,

delay any safety improvement

for quite easily a year or more,

and could result in attempts

to find money from stretched

capital budgets involving road

realignment,” he said. “This is a

waste of ratepayers’ money.”

PARKING WOES: On-street

car parking could be removed

from part of Langdons Rd if

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board approves a new

proposal.

Concern over

removal of

car parks

•From page 1

Mr Stringer had been vocal

about his disapproval of the

Langdons Rd proposal and Main

North Rd bus priority project.

He said the loss of on-street car

parking would discourage local

shoppers.

“One wonders where the mall

expects the additional shoppers

for the new shops, will now

park? In the

car parks of

the businesses

opposite, like

Briscoes?” he

said.

John Stringer

“I guess

Papanui oldies

and mums

with kids can all use Lime scooters.”

He said the car parking issue

would also affect business owners

and employees.

“I’ve spoken to local business

people who’ve confirmed to me

they have relocated because of

these proposals. There are half

a dozen for lease signs up in Papanui

Village right now,” he said.

“Cartridge World, for example,

has left, and moved out of the bus

lanes zone, and has taken a new

shop past where the bus lanes

end, so its customers have somewhere

to park.”

The owners of Cartridge

World could not be reached for

comment.

Later, the finish line was

earthquake, the event had to be

event is at Centennial Park and

the Sport Canterbury 6km event

Both events finish at the

WINNER: The junior school building at Cathedral Grammar was chosen as the

winner of the 2018 Ted McCoy Award for Education.

Cathedral Grammar claims

top architecture award

Scott

Thelning

CATHEDRAL Grammar

School has been awarded a

top architecture award.

The junior school building

was chosen as the winner

of the 2018 Ted McCoy

Award for Education, one

of New Zealand’s four toptier

architecture awards.

This specific

accolade

acknowledges

high-quality

learning

spaces.

The building

was

designed

by Andrew

Barrie Lab and Tezuka

Architects.

“The goal was that the

building would be characterised

by both the warmth

of the timber and by the

dynamic and rhythmic

form of the structure,” said

Mr Lab.

The awards’ jury said the

junior school was “a lovely,

humane learning environment

that captures the joy

of childhood.”

“The beautifully detailed

and executed glass and

timber pavilions have been

positioned on the site to

open the school up to the

street,” they said.

“Normally schools are

quite internally focused but

this one gives back. There

are amazing playful and

delightful moments, which

are totally appropriate

for a primary school; the

rooftop playground is connected

to an undulating

landscape by a slide and

there are water spouts and

troughs. Everything has an

element of fun about it.”

Principal Scott Thelning

said he was “delighted” by

the award.

“The first years of school

are crucial for laying the

foundations for a lifelong

love of learning. We are

extremely proud of our

junior school building,

which provides a happy,

secure and caring atmosphere

allowing each child’s

strengths to develop to

their fullest,” he said.

“State-of-the-art facilities

help give our students the

opportunity, encouragement

and skills to achieve

their personal best in all

aspects of the school curriculum,

and to contribute

towards their development

as confident, happy

members of our school

community”.

Three of the actors – Nic Kyle,

Cam Douglas and Jack Marshall,

and band member Tim Sellars,

are all former students of the

school.

It is the first time the quartet

can recall working in a production

together.

Another old boy, David

Bosworth, is also contracted for

construction.

All regularly work at The Court

Theatre but their paths didn’t

often cross at school.

Currently Vancouver-based

Kyle has the lead role of Jesus in

the musical, and has worked with

Douglas in a number of productions

since 2007.

He credits David Chambers,

director of drama at Christ’s College

for 21 years, as the impetus

for his acting career.

“The entire reason that I have

a career in theatre today is the

influence David had on me in my

last few years at college,” he said.

“Without his help and inspiration

I wouldn’t be an actor today.

He had the foresight to cast me in

SUPERSTARS: (From left) – Nic Kyle (Jesus), Jack Marshall

(Bartholomew), Cam Douglas (Simon) and Tim Sellars

(drummer) are in the cast of Jesus Christ Superstar.

Les Misérables at college in 2004,

many years before I saw my own

potential.”

At Christ’s College from 1995-

99, Douglas predated his younger

colleagues, having missed Kyle

by a year. Jesus Christ Superstar

would be his 29th show at The

Court.

“I played Oliver when I was

at Medbury School and learnt

drama from Yvette Bromley

which got me hooked. Then I had

a break from acting and concentrated

on sport until I got a part

in a musical called Children of

Eden at College in my final year.

David Chambers inspired me to

continue pursuing performing

arts by auditioning for NASDA.

Legend.”

Drummer Sellars began working

at The Court Theatre in 2010

in Cabaret.

“Coming out from study, I

never thought I’d end up playing

this many theatre shows in my

career. I love the variety each

show brings.”

Jesus Christ Superstar runs at

The Court Theatre until January

19, 2019.

the age of five and attends

the Anna Lee School of

Dance.

Depending on when she

is training for her Royal

Academy of Dance syllabus

exams, Anna can often

spend up to 12 hours a week

training.

“I just love to dance

really, I get to do it with all

my friends so it is lots of

fun having all these new

experiences and challenges,”

she said.

Anna was selected in the

top 10 to compete in the

junior finals of the South

Island Ballet Award in July.

While ballet can be difficult,

Anna said the key is to keep

trying and don’t give up.

“There is always

something new you can

improve on and work on and

learn so just keep going,” she

said.

All children performing in

the shows were auditioned

and split into two casts of 30

for the shows.

Demand for Selwyn Sounds buses

• By Anan Zaki

A RECORD number of buses

are set to be used for next year’s

Selwyn Sounds following strong

interest from the city’s northern

and western suburbs.

Eleven of the 16 buses

booked for the March event are

from Northland’s Shopping

Centre, Papanui and Westfield

Riccarton.

It is the

same number

of buses as last

But Selwyn

David Parlane

expects to see even more buses

booked by March.

Mr Parlane said people from

Papanui and Riccarton have

been drawn to the event because

of its “unique” variety of performers

and food stalls.

He said the older demographic

from the northern suburbs may

have played a part in the strong

interest for Selwyn Sounds, but

couldn’t say for certain why the

north is attracting more buses.

“It’s a bloody good deal

He said the large number

of buses from Papanui and

Riccarton did not necessarily

mean that the tickets were from

residents in those areas.

“But if you look at where the

buses are coming from, the

northern area is certainly a

big part of what makes Selwyn

Sounds very special,” Mr Parlane

said.

Buses are also available from

the Bus Interchange, Hub

Community Centre.

Selwyn Sounds will be

headlined by the Little River

performances by Leo Sayer,

Getting ready for

the festive season

Christmas means a lot of things to a lot of

people. For some it is a religious celebration,

for others a chance to gather with family and

celebrate. Whatever Christmas means to you,

there are many ways to celebrate – from the full

grandeur of baked ham and turkey with all the

trimmings or a picnic on the beach with the ones

you love.

For some, Christmas can be a stressful time

of year, but there are ways to minimise this and

spread the workload, so everyone can enjoy the

day.

Here are some ideas to help you get through the

festive season.

Create order in your home

Start preparations early, if you are hosting

everyone at your house, don’t leave it all to the

last minute. Start the spring clean up now so

when it comes to the days leading into the holiday

season you are not rushing around – making you

stressed and exhausted.

Tackling one room at a time is a good way

to purge and get organised. Sorting through

wardrobes and cupboards and getting rid of

anything you haven’t used in the past year. Having

all the rooms organised means there will also be

space for those coming to stay during this busy

time.

Once you’ve dusted and vacuumed shut the

doors and just air out the room a few days before

your guests arrive. A nice towel placed at the end

of the bed and a small floral arrangement from the

garden can also add a nice welcoming touch.

Share the food load

We have between 25 to 30 people for Christmas

most years, but our family has got smart. The host

divvies up the food between each family, spreading

the cost and the work.

About four weeks before the big day, we send

out a food allocation of what each person brings.

Normally the parents get the turkey and ham

with the offspring in charge of vegetables and

puddings. This is a great way to

spread the load and the cost and allows for those

who aren’t cooks to also contribute – we just put

them in charge of nibbles, drinks or chocolates for

on the table etc.

Just make sure you tell each person how much

is needed, for example you don’t want someone

turning up with just one punnet of strawberries.

The rule is that whatever you bring you must

have prepared, so the new potatoes arrive scraped

in a pot, the vegetables and the salads and puddings

are all made.

A little bit of organisation ahead of time means

everyone gets to enjoy the day and join in the fun.

Picking the perfect pressie

at the perfect price

Christmas present shopping can be a headache for giftgivers

but here are a few simple steps to assist you when

selecting the perfect gift this Christmas season.

Set a budget

The trap many people fall into is

overspending. Work out how much you

want to spend total for all your presents, then

use this amount to allocate the amount you

are going to spend on each person. If your

allocation totals more than your budget,

then scrape a little bit of money off each

person’s amount.

The common pitfall at Christmas, or in fact

any other time you’re shopping, is when you

see something that is just a few dollars more.

Those few dollars can really add up, so try

and stick to the amount you have budgeted

for each person as closely as possible.

If you spend less on a person yet still get

them the perfect gift, then see it as a win.

If things are tight

If you are not able to afford to buy

presents for all your family members, then

be honest with them. Perhaps now is the

time to stop buying for your brothers and

sisters, nephews and nieces. A secret Santa

present, where each person is allocated

someone to buy for with a set dollar limit, is

a great idea – you still get the fun of giving

and receiving but not the huge expense.

Otherwise another way to cut costs

is to give something you have made

yourself. This could be baking, chutneys or

something you have crafted or sewn. If you

have a special talent for making something

(that doesn’t cost the earth) then now is the

time to show it.

Ask for help

If you’re unsure of what to get someone a

little hint from the person is okay. Children

especially love writing lists of what they

would like, so save those catalogues coming

through the letterbox, look at newspaper

advertisements or go online and spend

some time with them to find out what their

perfect present is.

It’s okay also to say that the gift they have

chosen is too expensive but then together

search through and find an alternative. It

can still be a surprise for them on the day,

if you get them to write down two or three

of their favourite things and then tell them

you will pick one from their list.

Shop assistants can also offer great ideas

>> Carseats, buggies and strollers

>> Cots, portacots and linen

>> Highchairs and feeding products

>> Breastfeeding products

>> Gifts, toys and so much more

>> Hires - short or long term

if you give them the gender and age of

the people you are shopping for. They

know what stock they have in store

and can save you time and struggle by

culling out the things that may not be

appropriate.

Before you head out make sure you are

rested up, fed and hydrated and stress

free – if you aren’t, chances are you will

blow your budget just to get the job

done quickly. Shopping hours are often

extended at this time of year, so shop

smart and go either early in the morning

or late at night when shops should be

less busy.

Rangi Ruru had teams in the

year 9, 10, 12 and 13 divisions of

the 25th annual Future Problem

Solving national finals in

Auckland this month.

Students from Rangi Ruru,

Burnside High and Cashmere

High will head to Massachusetts

next year for the FPS

international finals.

Most of the contingent flew to

Auckland for the national final

but the year 13 students elected

to compete from Christchurch

so they would have more time to

study for exams.

The combined year 12 team,

which included students from

Rangi Ruru, St Margaret’s

College and Burnside High, won

the presentation of action plan

section and finished second in

the senior global issues problemsolving

section.

The year 13 team from Rangi

Ruru won the senior global issues

problem-solving section.

In the final, teams had a mindbending

challenge – how to fix

cloud storage problems in the

year 2038.

Rangi Ruru digital technology

teacher Dave Hullen said the

challenge was a daunting task but

the girls took it head on.

“This was the culmination of

a year of hard work, research,

practice and creative thinking,”

he said. “For most of the

younger girls, this was their

first time at nationals and they

did themselves and Rangi

Ruru proud. Their enthusiasm,

determination, intelligence and

creativity will assure them of

future success in FPS.”

The Rangi Ruru teams earned

their place at nationals in term

three with submissions on

solving future problems with

philanthrocapitalism – a type of

philanthropy that mirrors the

way business is done in the notfor-profit

area.

Earlier in the year, the teams

practiced their problem-solving

skills by studying problems

related to infectious diseases and

toxic waste.

The teams knew the national

finals topic was cloud storage

so they researched binary,

encryption, compression,

quantum computing and

projected current trends.

International medals

for students

THREE RANGI Ruru Girls’

School students have been

awarded prestigious international

medals for academic excellence.

International Competitions

and Assessments for Schools

awards were presented to Arwen

van Pallandt, year 12, for writing,

Kate Gourley, year 9, for digital

technologies, and Anna Wyn-

Harris, year 7, for English.

Rangi Ruru principal Dr

Sandra Hastie said the awards

were an incredible achievement

and she offered warm

congratulations to the three

recipients.

ICAS conducts examinations

annually in Australia and in

more than 20 countries in Asia,

Africa, Europe, the Pacific and

United States. More than one

million student entries are

accepted from more than 6300

schools in Australia and New

Zealand annually.

It caters for students from years

2-12 and assesses students’ skills

in digital technologies, English,

mathematics, science, spelling

and writing.

The ICAS medals will be

presented on Saturday, 2pm, at

the Auckland University Business

School.

In addition to the Auckland

ceremony, Dr Hastie will

present medals to the Rangi

Ruru students at the school next

Tuesday.

WW1 memorabilia

on display at

St Andrew’s

A St Andrew’s College exhibition,

which includes former rector

JB Mawson’s medals (left), has

Fire rages, homes at risk

Top-selling author in fight against quarry

• By Anan Zaki

SORAYA NICHOLAS has

recently made a name for herself

fighting a quarry in Yaldhurst.

But away from opposing the

Road Metals quarry extension

near her home, Nicholas – who

publishes under the name Soraya

Lane – is a top-selling author

writing historical women’s

fiction.

The former Merivale woman

started writing books 15 years

ago, with little results. But that

changed after she published her

first novel, Voyage of the Heart,

in 2013.

Fast-forward to today and

Nicholas is currently in the

process of pitching her novels

to United States television

networks.

“It’s very surreal. When you’re

writing a novel . . . it’s a movie

in my head and to think that

someone might actually take that

story, stamp their own creativity

on it and turn it into something

visual is pretty exciting,”

Nicholas said.

She published Voyage of the

Heart independently.

“That novel did really well

and sold about 20,000 copies on

my own and then I was offered

a publishing deal by Amazon

Publishing through their Lake

Union imprint and the rest is

history,” Nicholas said.

Nicholas’ second novel, Wives

of War, debuted at No 2 on

Amazon Kindle in the United

Kingdom and United States in

July last year.

She was the first Kiwi to reach

No 2 in the list.

“I couldn’t quite crack

No 1 [overall]. But I took out

Metals quarry

extension in

Yaldhurst.

the No 1 spot in historical

fiction, women’s fiction and also

romance,” Nicholas said.

Wives of War sold more than

100,000 copies in the United

Kingdom and United States.

She has focused on romance

novels due to market demands.

“When I first started writing

romance it was purely because

from a business point of view

romance is one of the biggest

genres in the world,” Nicholas

said.

Nicholas said she has chosen

to stay out of the public limelight

in New Zealand until this year,

when she decided to fight the

proposed Road Metals quarry

extension in Yaldhurst.

Nicholas initially studied to be

a lawyer, but never practised due

to her love for writing.

The knowledge in law was one

of the reasons she has vocally

campaigned against the Road

Metals quarry extension.

“I’ve been wanting to do work

for charities or unpaid work

and then this [quarry extension]

came up. With quarrying so

close to homes it’s nice to know

I’m helping people who need 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.”

Competition – ba s player, Tom

Fastier, co lapsed an died the

day before the competition

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

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

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

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

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
