Banning trucks won’t be a breeze

Support for

Livingstone’s

plan may not

get traction

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CITY COUNCILLOR Glenn

Livingstone may have a fight on

his hands to stop heavy trucks on

Breezes Rd.

Cr Livingstone has gone to the

city council asking to have heavy

vehicles rerouted to Anzac Drive,

as well as a section of Breezes Rd

between Wainoni Rd and Pages

Rd repaired.

He would like the trucks

rerouted by using Anzac Drive,

Wainoni Rd

and Pages

Rd to avoid

the section

of Breezes

Rd that runs

past Haeata

Community

Campus.

Glenn

Livingstone

The matter

will now be

discussed at

a seminar

between the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board and a city

council road traffic engineer.

But Cr Livingstone may not get

the support he needs.

Fellow community board

member Tim Baker said he did

not agree with Cr Livingstone

CONCERN: City councillor Glenn Livingstone wants heavy vehicles rerouted from Breezes Rd.

and it wasn’t practical to reroute

the trucks.

“The answer is long-term

resealing that road and making it

a better surface,” he said.

Cr Livingstone acknowledged

vehicles such as delivery trucks

to Pak n Save are important to

the community and need to continue

travelling on the road.

He said the board could classify

by tonnage and the heavier

trucks, such as those that travel

to the Burwood Resource Recovery

Park, would reroute.

“I am sure we can do something,”

Cr Livingstone said.

The city council’s traffic count

data estimates about 9000 vehicles

travel on Breezes Rd between

Avondale Rd and Wainoni Rd a

day. Board member Linda Stewart

said placing heavy vehicle

restrictions on Breezes Rd was

sympathetic but impractical.

“To reroute heavy vehicles to

Anzac Drive still means putting

the problem elsewhere to create

impacts elsewhere on residential

streets,” she said.

from the editor’s desk

I AGREE with Glenn Livingstone that

something needs to be done about Breezes

Rd (page 1).

But rerouting heavy trucks isn’t logical

and almost certainly won’t happen.

I’m sure people living along Breezes Rd

would love to see heavy trucks take another route. The road still

has the bumps and undulation left by the 2011 quake.

And having lived on a once busy road in the east with the

same quake issues, it is a pain.

Livingstone doesn’t appear to have a lot of support from his

community board colleagues for rerouting trucks. But he is

setting the bar to get the matter in the public eye. Hopefully,

he’ll be successful with Plan B: Fix part of Breezes Rd.

Now that would be a victory.

Survey won’t change Richmond

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RICHMOND residents don’t

believe a survey aiming to gather

information on what is needed

in the suburb will make any

difference to the area.

The city council has

commissioned independent

social researcher Sarah Wylie

to undertake a Richmond

community needs analysis

survey.

But a key

source of

information for

the survey will

not be made

available until

Hayley

Guglietta

Matthew

Horncastle

next year. It

aims to provide

a demographic

profile of

Richmond using

the 2018 Census

data. ​

Statistics New

Zealand could

not confirm a

timeframe on

when the Census

data would be

made public, but

it won’t be until next year.

Richmond Residents

and Business Association

chairwoman Hayley Guglietta

UNENTHUSIASTIC: Richmond residents are uncertain

a survey commissioned by the city council will make a

difference to improving the area.

said the survey would only

confirm what residents already

know.

“Also there is not much they

can do until they get the Census

data,” she said.

City council head of

community support, governance

and partnerships John Filsell

said 18 key informants in the

Richmond community will be

interviewed for the analysis

survey.

A timeline has not been

specified on when the survey

will be released.

Mrs Guglietta said one

issue Richmond is facing has

to do with the high-density

development that is impacting

on communities because there

was no notification on the

consents.

She said by the time the survey

gets the data it will be too late.

The association has expressed

concern over the Williams

Corporation’s 21 housing unit

development at 58 Perth St.

Work on the development is

expected to start next year.

Williams Corporation managing

director Matthew

Horncastle said the residents

shouldn’t be notified because it

complies with all the planning

rules.

“I am very disappointed in

news channels that condone

people complaining about highdensity

affordable housing when

New Zealand has some of the

most unaffordable housing in

the world,” he said.

Richmond resident Don

Gould called the survey

engagement for the sake of

engagement.

He said he has been

interviewed by the researcher

and the information may not

be presented until the middle of

next year.

“There is too much

construction, too much

frustration with everything

closed at once,” he said.

But city councillor Deon

Swiggs said it will give direction

on what Richmond needs as a

collective.

“It is one of the suburbs that

doesn’t have a master plan

. . . after the earthquake, a lot of

other suburbs had master plans,”

he said.

Reviving New Brighton

New Brighton

Business and

Landowners

Association

manager Paul

Lonsdale

writes about

the revival of the suburb

IT HAS been an interesting

year for New Brighton with the

completion of the wonderful

seaside playground and sign-off

to proceed and build the longawaited

hot pools along the

beach front.

Seeing our city council staff

investing in public infrastructure

points to an improved future

for our quaint seaside village,

giving rise to some saying that

Brighton’s back.

The reality is, Brighton never

went away, it was forgotten, and

after working out here for two

years now, I know some of the

locals like it that way.

One of the most interesting

comments I have heard from

an overseas visitor when asked

why they came out to New

Brighton was they felt that New

Brighton reflected the real New

Zealand.

It is authentic, unpretentious,

and wrapped up in some of the

best natural environment we

have in the city.

DEVELOPMENT: Paul

Lonsdale says the seaside

playground is an example of

progress in New Brighton.

It is a strange paradox that

here in the city we value the land

closest to the airport more than

we do our beautiful coastline.

This does, however, create

opportunities for those seeking

to live in this wonderful part of

our city.

We have immigrants from

many parts of the globe who now

live here and cannot believe they

are able to afford to live in a place

right on the coast.

The New Brighton Business

and Landowners Association has

been advocating and working

with many parties over the years

to help breathe new life into the

town centre and, while things

are not yet where they should

be, we are seeing many positive

signs of regeneration. We have

created enough confidence and

demand to fill most vacant sites

that can be filled and helped

some businesses do better

business.

The future for New Brighton

is bright and regeneration will

happen, we just need to make

sure our locals support their

local centre so the businesses can

survive.

Reader Gary Knight

responds to an article on

the North Beach Residents’

Association wanting to

retain the public toilets at

Thomson Park

It is vital that

co-operation

between the North

Beach Residents’

Association and the

Coastal-Burwood

Community Board

results in a realistic consultation

process from city council in

regard to its future plans for

Thomson park. The visible

location and proximity to the

North Beach car park makes

the present Thomson park

toilet block a true asset to the

New Brighton community. As

suggested clearer and bolder

signage and improved

access would be a proactive

step to further

complement this block.

The future proposed

upgrade of Thomson

Park, inclusive of

a picnic area and

new car park, while

commendable for the area,

should not distract from the

status of this toilet block as an

iconic and revered structure

within this seaside suburb.

Call to ‘urgently’ fix Bexley toilets

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A CALL has been made for

urgent action to reopen the

Bexley Park public toilets,

which have been the target of

vandalism.

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board has asked city

council staff to “urgently” fix the

toilets and address the ongoing

vandalism issues.

The call comes after tourist

and entertainment business,

Velocity Karts, raised concerns

over people coming to use the

outdoor facility and having to

use a portaloo.

The toilets have been closed

since the start of last month

after the solar power system and

batteries were removed, along

with the plumbing that fed water

to the toilets

The theft was reported to

police.

It is estimated the city council

would need to put $9596 towards

repairing the toilets, along with

an extra $500 on security.

Velocity Karts owner Ian

Brown said it doesn’t want

to be offering a portaloo to

its international visitors and

corporate groups.

He described the latest

REPAIRS NEEDED: Velocity Karts owner Ian Brown is calling for

the Bexley Park public toilets to be reopened after they were

vandalised.

vandalism as “unbelievably

annoying” and “senseless

destruction.”

Mr Brown said the people who

dismantled the public toilets

must be organised and equipped.

The outdoor adventure

business has built a reputation

as a top city attraction on

TripAdvisor.

But it hasn’t been smooth

sailing since it opened with four

drift karts worth more than

$20,000 stolen two years ago.

Various vandalism incidents

have occurred since the public

toilets opened three years ago.

The city council has recorded

six incidents involving graffiti,

solar panels being removed and

damage to doors.

City council community parks

manager Al Hardy said the door

security on the toilets has been

improved and staff will also

consider altering the lock-up

time at the Bexley Park security

gates.

A site visit with city council

parks staff, the community

board, Velocity Karts and the

North Avon Christchurch BMX

Club has been arranged for

December 12.

Mr Hardy said a start date

for the required work would be

confirmed after the site visit.

Board chairwoman Kim

Money said the location of the

public toilets has probably not

helped the vandalism.

She said it will be good to meet

with the community to ensure

everyone is on the same page.

Bid to ban

trucks from

Breezes Rd

•From page 1

But city councillor David East

was supportive of having the

heavy traffic discouraged from

using the route.

“I really can’t see why heavy

traffic would want to use that

stretch of road, it is far quicker

to use the ring road (Anzac

Drive),” he said. Board chairwoman

Kim Money said she

would need to get a “full perspective”

from the seminar before

she could comment. Deputy

chairman Tim Sintes said differentiating

between heavy vehicles

would be difficult. The issue was

raised at board member’s exchange

and the board requested

staff arrange a seminar.

Haeata principal Andy Kai

Fong said while there aren’t traffic

concerns, it would support

the rerouting.

“If that was a move Glenn was

making for safety reasons then

we would endorse it,” he said.

Avondale Golf Club general

manager Richard Sinclair said

the road is busy with heavy

trucks. But he said there are

a fair amount of industrial

businesses on the road.

Theatre for babies

BABIES AND theatre are not

usually two things that are put

together.

In fact, any parent who has

taken a baby to a performance

knows it can be challenging at

best and a disaster at worst.

Turning that whole idea on

its head is Burwood’s Melanie

Luckman, Sumner’s Hannah

Wheeler and Strowan’s Amy

Straker.

The trio will perform their

show Up And Away, designed

especially for pre-walking

babies, in New Brighton and

Phillipstown.

The show will be staged

through the newly-launched

Cubbin Theatre Company.

The company aims to develop

genuine theatre for children

under the age of five.

Each performance will last

about 30-40min with an opportunity

for families to stay and

play at the end.

The show will also take place

in a carefully crafted tent.

“Our vision is of a world where

high-quality art is as integral to

early childhood as the

playground, and as accessible,”

Luckman said.

She said it has been great

Luckman said with the funding’s

help it can offer the show

for $5 for a baby and adult

together.

The show is informed by

neuroscientific research and has

been developed in consultation

with a speech and a language

therapist through a series of

rehearsal workshops with babies.

Wheeler was working at LATT

Children’s Theatre and living in

South Korea when she saw her

first baby theatre performance.

“It was five years ago and what

I experienced has stuck with me

ever since. I am really excited

about bringing high quality,

said.

New equipment for

sensory playground

OBSOLETE equipment

from throughout the city

is getting a new lease

of life in the children’s

playground at Rawhiti

Doman.

The sensory playground

is designed to give all

children, especially those

with special needs, the

opportunity to explore

senses.

The playground was the

brainchild of SmileDial

New Zealand founder

Kelly Dugan.

Mr Dugan, who has a

seven-year-old daughter

with cerebral palsy, came

up with the idea.

Some of the large plastic

traffic sheep that used

to feature on inner city

pavements have been

put out to pasture in the

sensory garden along with

one of the New Brighton

tiny huts.

An avid supporter of

the playground is Citycare

property supervisor Doug

Peek, who is always on

the lookout for items that

can be recycled at the

playground rather than

sent to landfill.

When it was time to

decide if the hut should

stay or be dismantled, Mr

Peek suggested it be added

to the garden.

“I always keep SmileDial

and the kids in the back of

my mind when out on the

job . . . we are essentially

turning trash into

treasure,” Mr Peek said.

SmileDial receives no

“Without the backing of

Sustainability key

to organic farming

There’s something for

everyone in the realm of

organic farming but as far

as Bill Martin is concerned,

it’s all about sustainability.

The Training College

Manager at Lincoln

University’s Biological

Husbandry Unit Organics

Trust (BHU) is happy to see

a surge in enthusiasm for

organic food production

as younger generations

become more aware of

environmental concerns.

He says the growing

popularity of organic

production in recent years

means that graduates are

now taking what they have

learned into a broader

range of sectors.

“It’s not just about

growing, wholesaling

and retailing food anymore. They’re

going into schools and teaching primary

and secondary schoolers about the

importance of sustainable farming and

gardening and really starting to embed the

philosophy into the education system.”

As far as conventional agricultural

practices are concerned, he says farmers

should be encouraged to optimise their

production, rather than maximise it at the

expense of the environment.

“We need to change our agricultural

paradigm and re-evaluate our priorities.”

Mr Martin says those interested in a

career in organics should enrol in the

one-year Diploma in Agri-Food Production

course, which is open to students either

with or without university entrance.

Introduced last year, it includes Tikanga

and Mahinga Kai components and can

lead to employment in organic primary

production or other sectors related

to organics, especially education and

hospitality.

“The course offers a good grounding

in the principles of organic agriculture,

teaching the philosophies and histories

of organics and providing practical

knowledge of how they are applied,” Mr

Martin says.

Apply now for the Diploma in Organic

Agri-Food Production and begin studying

in February 2019.

over the past year.

Wainoni Avonside Community

Services Trust co-ordinator

Betty Chapman, who established

the garden, said the donations

were “wonderful” and restored

her faith in human nature again.

“These folk were just marvellous

it was just so nice to receive

these plants after the vandalism

and theft,” she said.

In September, a container at

the garden was broken into and

about $500 of tools were stolen.

About six shovels, two garden

rakes, two spades, three wheelbarrows

and 20 bags of compost

were taken.

Hayley Guglietta, Ōtākaro Orchard project co-ordinator

Peter Wells, Richmond Community Garden member Kathy

Aliden, New Brighton Community Garden’s Kathy O’Neill and

Wainoni Avonside Community Services Trust co-ordinator

Betty Chapman. ​

Police have not recovered the

items. It was not the first theft

the garden had suffered.

Between December and

January, connectors to go in the

garden beds and 10 fruit trees

were also stolen.

“We planted 100 leeks in

January and there was not one

left. I wouldn’t mind if they

needed it and they came and

asked for it. I would give it to

them. “For us to plant them

all and then take them . . .

criminal,” Mrs Chapman said.

A temporary fence with a

shade cloth will be established

as a security measure.

Mrs Chapman said

she is also considering

putting up a security light at the

garden.

THE LOWERING of the speed

limit at the Prestons subdivision

has prompted calls to bring

down speeds along other roads

in Parklands.

A Tumara Park resident has

asked the city council to consider

lowering the speed limit on

Rothesay Rd, Putake Drive and

roads within Tumara Park to

40km/h.

Last month the city council

ruled against the Coastal-

Burwood and Papanui-Innes

community boards decision

to keep the speed limit at the

Prestons subdivision to 50km/h.

Instead, it decided to lower

it to 40km/h, which prompted

a backlash from the Prestons

community.

In a letter to the community

board, the Tumara Park resident

said it is “downright” scary how

fast cars travel down Rothesay

Rd and Putake Drive.

She said she was walking down

Rothesay Rd last month when

she witnessed a Red Nissan

Skyline going about 90km/h.

“The extremely sad thing

is how many SUVs with both

middle-aged men and women

driving, who are travelling easily

between 60-65km/h,” she said.

Call to lower speed

limits in Tumara Park

SLOW DOWN: A Tumara

Park resident has requested

that the speed limit along

Rothesay Rd be put down to

40km/h.

The community board has

asked city council staff to look

at the limits on roads within

Tumara Park and report back.

City councillor Glenn

Livingstone said while he

supports lowering speed limits,

further information was needed.

He said an electronic speed

indication sign will also be

installed on Rothesay Rd for

three months and city council

staff will report back on its

effectiveness.

They’re back !

The line made famous, by the terminator

himself Arnold Schwarzenegger, “I’ll be

back,” can totally apply to the east side of

Christchurch. We can confidently say that

New Brighton is back! And they are better

than ever.

No longer the “whoas me,” from the 2011

earthquake, activities abound, business is

thriving, families are going about their daily

lives having fun, serving their community,

making Friday -ends and offering that big

New Brighton, “Hello,” to passer-byers.

With summer fast approaching, their community

calendar reads as if they are off

to the races with all the events they have

scheduled for Christmas and the summer

break. Keep close tabs on their postings and

announcements, so you don’t miss anything.

As the city has really rebuilt their sea legs

with the opening of the salt water pools, the

beach is as busy as ever. The Christmas Parade

is around the corner. Check out their

art classes and Christmas craft workshops

and sessions. The gallery displays are a buzz

with craftmanship.

Business is thriving in all industries from real

estate, to automotive. Fashion is always a

main stay whether looking for that desired

outfit for that special occasion or a day at

the beach. Tourism has bounced back like a

rugby try and hospitality is a founding member

providing cool drinks, yummy desserts

and desired meal mains.

The beauty and vibe of the east side is

vibrance and the community is abuzz that

they’ve got their mojo back.

They may have been down and exhausted

for a short period of time, but those days

are behind them as the east side is flourishing

with activity, beauty, Friday -endship and

the quaintness that makes that community

so special.

The Christchurch beachfront pool facility

offers loads of fun with their hot saltwater

pools and mixed among the six pools

options is a steam room, a sauna and a cafe.

So much fun under one roof. This $11.2

million pool facility sits on 1900 square

metres of land at 195 Marine Parade,

between the playground and car park, at the

site of the old whale pool.

Five hot salt water pools range in

temperature from 40 degrees Celsius

to 28C for the fitness pool and a small

circular plunge pool sits at 12C. The pools

are split into four zones which include a

therapeutic, fitness, family size and active

zone choices. There are two buildings which

house changing rooms, a steam room and

sauna, toilets, a plant room and a café to

offer a complete experience for your pool

adventure.

The pools are in operation seven days a

week between 9am and 9.30pm and have

quickly become a major attraction.

Stop by and experience the hot saltwater

pools. Fun with every splash.

Relaxed vibe & diverse shopping...

make New Brighton special

When you are heading out to do your Christmas shopping or to

meet up with friends and family for a festive catch-up, why not

choose the one shopping area in the city that has a vibe like no

other – New Brighton. The beach and relaxed seaside environment,

the friendly people, the mix of businesses, all make New Brighton a

very special place.

Brighton is building an eclectic range of hospitality venues such as

their authentic Thai, Indian, top-class Italian or food that just feeds

the soul, which you will find tucked away in the most unexpected

places.

Or for boutique shopping, the village is filled with quirky thrift shops

and for those who love repurposing or upcylcing, you can find

unique Christmas gifts that you know are one off’s that cannot be

duplicated.

Saturday is Market Day in New Brighton. This weekly event always

draws the crowds with its selection of stalls offering delicious

food items, crafts, fresh produce and live music adding to the

atmosphere of fun and relaxation by the sea.

Bring the kids and check out the new seaside playground, which

often has local pirates who are there entertaining. The playground

features a warm water wet deck, toys and is a place where the

kids can let their imaginations run wild all located right on the

beachfront.

New Brighton has embraced the emergence of the street art

culture and features works from some of the most renowned street

artists in the city and overseas. Two new street art works have been

commissioned for the wall of the Pier ramp and basketball court

by local artists, Nathan Ingram and Josh O’Rourke. Come down

and watch these works unfold over the coming weeks through to

Christmas.

Make sure while you are there to step out onto the Pier, the

area’s unique landmark, to remind yourself that Christchurch is a

beachside city and has one of the best coastlines in the world. You

may not be aware that it will be further enhanced with a selection of

hot pools where you will no longer have to travel out of the city for

this experience.

Don’t forget to bring the kids out for the annual Seaside Market

Santa Parade from 10.30am on December 8. So get on your bike, on

a Lime Scooter, or into your car and come and explore what New

Brighton has to offer over the Christmas period.

My MeSSage To The ciTy

counciL & regeneraTe

chriSTchurch

The neglect of New Brighton and its Coastal Community

has reached a point where rumblings and chatter have

turned to public anger.

These suburbs did feel that the new organiSaturday -ion

Regenerate Christchurch gave some hope to the residents

that some fair progress would be made to re-instate the

areas like the New Brighton CBD to better than pre-

Earthquake conditions, but seven years on, lots of money

has been spent on biased surveys and pre-feasibility studies

and, despite promises, nothing of substance has actually

happened.

This is very frustrating when so many of the very sound

proposals would also help Christchurch, and Canterbury in

general with spinoff economic benefits.

Regenerate Christchurch has the power to acquire land

compulsorily where land banking is holding back the

development of an area – New Brighton CBD needs a

very close look in this regard because the area lacks a

community centre at its heart. You have to ask why New

Brighton is one of the few Christchurch suburbs that

doesn’t have a facility that would be great for everyone

from day one, including the artisan residents.

In any development for the area, young people should

be the focus. The kids who get involved in sports and

recreational activities stay motivated and out of trouble, but

so many are having to go out of these suburbs for training

which is a cost that some families cannot meet, so many

simply miss out.

Protecting the Estuary’s edge must be the greatest priority

for the immediate future as so many residents are living in

fear of an uncertain future. The whole job to hold the edge

has been scoped out and costed a long time ago, and it’s

quite affordable considering what the benefits of certainty

delivered to the property-owning citizens would be. Letting

Mother Nature decide the futures of so many families is

not an option.

The area deserves more trees, a flat water sports facility

plus picnic and recreation areas. New Brighton is also

an ideal area for concerts and festivals, free from noise,

transport or parking hassles.

On behalf of the Forgotten East, my message to Regenerate

Christchurch and the City Council is plain and simple. Don’t

just canvas and consult, please listen – the people over here

have some wonderful, pragmatic ideas.

Robyn and Peter Thew are celebrating owning

Burwood Pharmacy for 20 years this month. We

have survived in the middle of the community,

without a medical practice next door, by

constantly improving our services and trying

new ideas. We know most of our customers by

name and provide personal and confidential

service. As owner operators we can tailor

ourselves to the needs of local community.

Robyn has been qualified as a pharmacist for

the past 33 years and has experience working

in hospital and community pharmacy, both

here and in the UK. She has also completed a

master’s in clinical pharmacy degree. Burwood

Pharmacy provides a full range of pharmacy

services including dispensing prescriptions,

providing medico blister packs, medicine

use reviews, smoking cessation, diet advice

(especially for diabetics) as well as stocking a

wide range of pharmacy medicines.

We also have an extensive range of amazing

AdveRTORiAl

Celebrating 20 years

gifts, jewellery, scarves and homeware. There

is something here for everyone, even Christmas

decorations, lights and candles. We also take

passport photos and can organize your dry

cleaning for you. There is plenty of parking just

outside the pharmacy.

For those last-minute gifts, pop in and we can

have them beautifully wrapped and ready to go

for no extra charge. Our loyalty card programme

is a draw card, as for every $300 you spend in

store you can earn a $20 gift voucher (equates to

6% discount). Customers are keen to use these

vouchers on something special for themselves,

often a lovely scarf.

When extending our shop in 2010 we were

hit by the earthquakes, but we have carried

on and still enjoy being part of the Burwood

Community. We welcome you to come and visit

Burwood Pharmacy for professional and friendly

pharmacy advice in a relaxed atmosphere.

sensitiVe santa at

The PaLMS ShoPPing

cenTre

Gaps in the photo albums of some

Christchurch families can be filled this year

thanks to a Sensitive Santa experience

designed to provide a calm environment for

children with sensory disorders.

For many Kiwi kids with sensory processing

disorders such as autism, even background

music and bright lighting can be extremely

unsettling. The Sensitive Santa sessions

are designed to combat this, eliminating

the chaos and sensory overload that

would usually overwhelm those children

in a shopping centre setting. The aim is to

provide a calm and quiet alternative to the

traditional Santa visit, soothing instead of

overpowering the senses.

The Sensitive Santa sessions will take place

before the centre opens to the public, to

eliminate crowds and allow for a quiet,

controlled environment. Families will be

scheduled to arrive one at a time for their

experience with Sensitive Santa.

Laura Meredith, marketing manager at The

Palms, says the initiative has received a great

amount of praise from the community. “We

are so delighted to bring back the beloved

Sensitive Santa sessions for the third year

in a row. The high demand has been evident

in the last couple years, as the sessions

were all booked within days, so this year

we have had to schedule more time to

accommodate more families wanting to sign

up.

“It’s great to see sensory initiatives taking

off in New Zealand and to feel as though

The Palms has played an integral part in

shedding light on this issue. The more we

can spread awareness around sensory

disorders, the more we can educate people

and create environments that better care

for sensory needs.”

According to Autism New Zealand, autism

spectrum disorder touches the lives of

more than 40,000 people and their families

in New Zealand, making it four times more

common than cerebral palsy and 17 times

more common than Down syndrome.

Sensitive Santa sessions run from 7am to

9am on 1, 8 and 15 December (Saturday

-urdays) and from 8am to 10am on 2, 9

and 16 December (Sundaydays). These

wonderful sessions are available by

appointment. Please call (03) 385 3067 to

book a place. Photos will be subsidised by

The Palms so that the families’ first photo is

only $5.00.

Shoe rePairS…

As the name suggests, Happy Feet in New Brighton will

make your feet happy, with the ability to repair anything to

do with your shoes. You will be amazed at what they can

achieve.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. This fascinating store,

run by father and son team Garry and Nigel, also provides

trophies, engraving, key cutting, bag repairs, all kinds of

sharpening, and with Garry and Nigel having a combined

experience of over 50 years you know you are in safe

hands.

They also stock Zippos, Christchurch’s biggest range of

shoelaces, insoles, hip flasks, sunglasses, 21st keys, and offer

discounted transponder keys for most makes and models

of vehicle, as well as replacement batteries for pretty much

anything.

The newest addition to the range is pop culture jewellery,

including Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Dr Who and Star

Wars items – great ideas for Christmas gifts.

Garry opened Happy Feet in September 1987 in

Chancery Lane before expanding with four stores around

Christchurch. Unfortunately, however, since they were hit

hard in the earthquakes the New Brighton store is now the

only outlet left standing, but it draws customers from not

only all over town but further afield through its website and

Facebook page.

Happy Feet is once again establishing itself as New

Zealand’s leading shoe repairer and engraving supplier.

Happy Feet is located at 121 Brighton Mall and is open

Monday to Friday, 9am-5.30pm, and Saturday 10am-

2pm. Phone 382 0399, 021 123 2935, or email info@

beautiful artwork that will capture your attention. Walk on

through and browse amongst all the fun choices as there is

so much more than meets the eye.

fabulousness.

Sausage sizzles, space for charity fundraisers, community support – it’s all in a day’s work for New world

stores who pride themselves on being the heart of their community.

new world

aT The hearT of The coMMuniTy

New World remains a sponsor of

the City Mission brown bag Foodbank

appeal.

Supermarkets are the heart of our communities. Often one

of the largest employers in an area, avid supporters of local

schools, clubs and individuals and a place where you bump

into old friends and neighbours. And of course, the place

where we go to fuel our tummies.

In the eastern suburbs of Christchurch, five New World

supermarkets proudly boast to being locally owned

and completely locally orientated. Collectively the New

Worlds’ in Kaiapoi, Prestons, Ferry Road, Stanmore Road

and Redcliffs employ more than 440 people – a good

percentage of them school students getting their first taste

of employment. Others have been working at their stores

for decades.

Giving back to the community is at the heart of the New

World DNA. Each store donates thousands of dollars’

worth of goods to locals in addition to supporting the

Foodstuffs South Island Community Trust. So far this

financial year, the five stores have contributed over $69,000

back into their local communities to support educational,

community and sporting activities.

New World Prestons Owner Julia Spence loves that

her supermarket is a local hub. “It’s so nice that we can

contribute to the local area by offering support for

fundraisers and events, but also as a place where people can

come and feel ‘a part’ of the local community. We see so

many people - mums, elderly, friends who bump into people

they know in the store who all have a catch up.”

Like so many in the East, the earthquake story for New

World has also been one of rebuilding. New World

Kaiapoi, Redcliffs and Ferry Road rebuilt, and they did it

fast, recognising that bringing back a quality and essential

shopping option was vital to the community. Prestons is a

new store to meet the growth in the area post-quake and

Stanmore has undergone significant refurbishment.

For each though, while the new or refreshed spaces are

nice – it’s all about people. The locals who work in the

supermarkets and most of all, the customer who chooses

to make New World their shopping and community hub.

voLunTeer STyLe

The present wrapping booth at Eastgate

Shopping Centre is ready to help in full

force this holiday season to wrap your

holiday gifts. Volunteers from charities

around the city are taking turns to man the

post and help make your holiday tasks a

little bit simpler.

Each of the charities is a cornerstone in the

city, which offer services for mental health,

family support, child initiatives, senior care

and so much more.

Eastgate Shopping Centre strongly supports

these charities efforts with this wrapping

booth fundraising initiative.

The centre provides the wrapping paper,

tape and scissors, while the actual wrapping

itself is done by charity volunteers. Most of

the charities involved have a long standing

relationship with the shopping centre

and have worked there for other events

throughout the years.

This tradition is one that will carry over

for year after year as Eastgate Shopping

Centre and our local charities join forces

and support each other for the betterment

of the community.

Don’t forget to have your picture taken

with Santa and their magic photographer

this year. That picture will last a lifetime and

now you can put that timeless photo in a

snow globe or on a mug or duplo brick or

a variety of merchandise which shares that

family moment.

Make sure to check out the Eastgate

Shopping Centre website to see all their

upcoming holiday events.

Stop by Eastgate Shopping Centre and do all

of your holiday shopping. While you’re there

don’t forget to stop by the gift wrapping

booth. The volunteers are waiting with the

elf hats wrapping paper and smiles to bring

holiday cheer your way.

Eastside

Strategically positioned in the heart of Parklands, and the New Brighton

commercial district, our two eastside Harcourts Gold offices operate with a medium

sized team of highly dedicated, experienced sales consultants who have all lived

and worked in the local community for a number of years. Our consultants are

available and committed to assisting not only their immediate neighbourhood and

the surrounding suburbs, but the wider area of Christchurch also.

The eastside team has developed an

extraordinary track record of dealing with every

scenario possible when it comes to selling

property post the Christchurch quakes. We have

the knowledge, expertise, and the energy to

achieve top results, and to assist our clients in

moving forward with

any real estate matters.

There is no challenge

too great nor too small!

In particular, we pride

ourselves on having

extensive knowledge in

selling ‘As Is, Where Is’,

uninsured properties,

to date having sold in

excess of 400, and have

been hugely successful

in then giving our

clients the ability

to reach a positive result with the sale of their

damaged home, and provide an opportunity to

move forward with their lives. Much of the value

Harcourts Gold New Brighton office in New Brighton Mall

and esteem the community attributes to the

team relates back to the support, encouragement

and assistance they delivered after the sequence

of earthquakes. Both our offices have continued

to act as a beacon for locals requiring clarity

when dealing with complex property and real

estate matters.

We are passionate about

helping and being part

of the local community

and already support

numerous organisations

locally – some

through volunteering,

newsletters, printing

– and through our

Harcourts Foundation

through which we

are able to apply for

funding to assist clubs

or community groups.

service department, and a number of talented

Harcourts Gold Parklands office in Parklands Mall

fresh faces to join our team. Whether you are

an established agent looking for a fresh start,

or new to the industry, Harcourts gold is a great

company to work with, offering a supportive

environment, and an active mentoring

programme. Our eastside offices based at

Parklands and New Brighton are very much

experience, share the same passion for people

of interest to you, please feel free to give Nikila a

What’s ‘HOT’ at House of Travel Shirley

Locally Owned & Operated.

Kia Ora, Aloha, Kia Orana, Bula, Bonjour…. Hello

from the team at House of Travel Shirley, your local

travel specialists.

We’re pleased to be part of “Life’s Great in the East”

and wanted to take this opportunity to spread the

word on how we can add excitement into your lives

by the way of travel.

In today’s world it is easy to ask Mr Google about your

next dream holiday destination, but there is nothing

better than being able to sit down for a chat with one

of our travel experts to ask questions and help create

a holiday that suits your needs and desires.

We’re lucky to have at our fingertips many

resources to research your holiday and we love to

collaborate with our clients and work together to

pull your trip together. We encourage you to bring

in your research and in most cases, we can get the

exact same hotel or tour for what you can see it

advertised for online. We know all the short cuts,

tips & tricks!

At House of Travel we offer you not only fantastic

packages, hotels options and all flight choices but we

also give you peace of mind and reassurance 24/7.

If anything goes wrong then you just need to call or

email us and we are here to help.

House of Travel is a well-known established brand

here in New Zealand and we’ve been operating

in this fantastic industry for over 30 years. We

are locally owned & operated and our team here

at HOT Shirley are well travelled, enthusiastic,

friendly and keen to help inspire you for your next

adventure.

So, what’s HOT in the world of international travel,

right now??

Cruising: Growth in the cruising sector has been

massive over the last couple of years with more and

more Kiwis keen to step on board and sail the high

seas. Cruising now caters for all walks of life and we

can offer you something that will suit your needs.

Croatia: Hand on heart everyone who has been to

Croatia with House of Travel just loves it and many

want to go back for more. From cobbled streets

of the ancient walled towns to the sapphire waters

and stunning small island destinations you will just

love this delightful country. We recommend a short

seven-night boutique small ship cruise around their

islands. Bliss!

Egypt: A fantastic place to visit some of the Ancient

Wonders of the World. Take a step back in time and

wander the narrow streets and markets of Cairo and

then take a short cruise down the Nile to some of the

famous monuments in Luxor or Abu Simbel. Great

value for money and simply spectacular sights.

Southern USA: With new direct flights into Texas

this area has taken a leap to a destination that Kiwis

are keen to explore. Head to the vibrant city of New

Orleans, the heart of jazz in the USA then maybe

follow the music north and explore Memphis and

Nashville and enjoy some “country” hospitality.

Sri Lanka: This little island lies to the south of

India and is a great “one stop” destination where

you can explore the jungles one day and then be on

the stunning white sandy beaches the next. An easy

place to get around for 10-14 days. It is a very family

friendly destination and a welcoming place to visit.

Samoa: The Pacific Islands have been on most

family holiday radars for some time now but Samoa

has recently come into its own and is proving to

be a popular destination. With a few new resorts,

stunning beaches, some interesting and fun activities

plus the friendly locals what more can you ask for!!

Maybe a cocktail beside the pool!

Shops bursting with

festive gift ideas

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making up the

Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you haven’t already done so.

Finding those special gifts and stocking fillers as

well as the Christmas treats for the table is so easy at

our city’s malls and shopping centres, where the shops

are bursting with festive merchandise.

Every woman likes to receive body pampering

gifts, and there is a huge selection of these priced

to suit all budgets at the many pharmacies and gift

shops around the city. Perfume is another favourite

and again there is a wide selection to choose from,

ranging from exciting new releases to the well-known

fragrances that have stood the test of time. Lingerie,

jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares and decor

items – there’s no end to the ideas for the women on

the list.

The men are equally well catered for, from the

sophisticated metro-male boyfriends, to the car-crazy

brothers and the DIY enthusiast and keen gardener

husbands and dads. Choose from clothing, books,

tools, personal grooming items and gadgets to put a

smile on their face on Christmas morning.

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families more joy

than seeing the excitement of the children opening

their presents. Whether they are delivered by Santa

or snuck under the tree by mum and dad, the cuddly

toys, games, dolls and building blocks, the candy

canes, toy trucks and pretty dresses currently filling

the shops will bring squeals of sheer happiness from

the smallest family members.

The tweens and teens usually have their own ideas

about what they want for Christmas, so the gift cards

offered by a wide range of retailers are the perfect way

to please.

Prep School.

In Cathedral Grammar’s purpose built

Pre-School, taught by qualified teachers, your

child will discover by curiosity, investigation

and exploration. Our low child/teacher ratios,

ensure your child’s quality individual and

group learning.

Every advantage is taken of our central

city location to extend our ‘campus’ from the

Botanic Gardens to the Canterbury Museum,

The Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o

Waiwhetu to the Christchurch Transitional

Cathedral, from Tūranga (Christchurch

central library) to the emergency services.

Being an inner city Pre-School also gives

you a wonderfully easy opportunity to engage

in your child’s learning if you are working in

the CBD.

Your child will develop essential

foundations in literacy and numeracy. He

or she will enjoy the benefits of specialised

facilities, subjects and staff including Art,

Physical Education, Yoga and Chapel.

When children feel good about themselves

and their abilities, they are able to take flight

and explore, discover, take risks and play,

laugh and learn effectively and successfully.

“Self-esteem is at the core of this development

process” Thelning says.

Children eat

what they sow

At Kimihia we are very lucky to have

space for vege gardens. Our tamariki are

involved in all aspects of the growing

of vegetables and fruit. Whilst our

strawberries are usually picked and

eaten fresh, most of the vegetables we

grow are used in the meals our Centre

provides. Over the growing season our

garden produced pumpkins, zucchini,

beetroot, tomatoes, beans, basil,

coriander, silverbeet, peas, broccoli,

cabbage, cauliflower and lettuce. Giant

sunflowers, nasturtiums and calendulas

provided plenty of colour in the garden.

Our children delighted in being able to

harvest the vegetables thay had grown

and take them to our food preparers. We

have also saved seeds from some of last

year’s veges to plant in the new season’s

garden.

The garden offers so many

opportunities for learning; not only the

connection between garden and plate,

but also how to care for living things,

how to work together and how to live

sustainably and care for the earth.

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times,

new research has shown that neurons

can grow back with the right conditions

and that a special extract of Gingko

Biloba (EGb-761 or TEBONIN) has

been clinically found to assist in this.

The implications for stroke recovery are

obvious, but researchers also know many

of us suffer from undetected “microstrokes”

that over a period of time slowly

reduce our cognitive function. TEBONIN

is prescribed worldwide as a natural

supportive agent for a healthy brain and

cognitive function. It supports healthy

mental performance, concentration, focus,

alertness, motor function and to help

with many conditions including tinnitus

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

micro-circulation and helps the blood

flow reach those critical places it needs to

get. It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes

the red blood cells more pliable and

capillary walls more flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented

multi-step extraction process. Each small

tablet contains a highly concentrated

BOOST BRAIN

PERFORMANCE UP TO 30%

TEBONIN is the No 1 Ginkgo Biloba extract in the World with more than 8 million tablets

being consumed every day. It is also the most researched herbal extract with more than 60

controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent

efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30

years to support blood flow, capillary health, brain health & performance.

Studies on TEBONIN Show:

- Improved Brain Performance & Function up to 30%. This includes improvement

in mental sharpness, focus, attention, concentration, understanding, memory & recall.

- Reduces errors made & mental stress.

- The only Ginkgo shown to increase activity in all areas of the brain. Can help restore

brain function after a brain injury such as from a stroke.

- Helps relieve tinnitus (ringing & noise in the ears), vertigo, dizziness & supports normal

balance.

- Improves blood flow to all areas of the body.

- Reduces plaque formation in the blood vessels.

- Protective effect against eyes damage caused by light.

50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic

clinical dose without having to take a large

amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba

products on the market, and tested by a

major medical journal, only TEBONIN

passed all five of the test requirements.

Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements

and the rest didn’t pass more than three

out of five requirements. TEBONIN is

the only Gingko biloba extract shown

to activated all areas of the brain and is

considered the gold standard in Gingko.

TEBONIN has been trusted by millions

of consumers worldwide for over 30

years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

PEGASUS POST

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior

clients visit complaining of pain in one or

both hips.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a

back muscle could also be the cause, as

shown in the image.

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

and wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the hip, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the hip in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

Back hip muscle that causes hip pain

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

and there is ample parking. To enquire

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

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

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

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

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

Only eight submi sions were

aimed at regulating commercial

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

A report said there are two

Pupils learn about role of war horses

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

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

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

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

Elite Meats owner Corey

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

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.
