Code of conduct issue

Jones and

Stringer at

centre of

conflict

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE PAPANUI-Innes

Community Board is embroiled

in a code of conduct issue.

But the city council and the

community board are refusing

to release details about what

board member or members are

involved.

Nor’West News understands

ongoing tension between board

chairwoman Ali Jones and

outspoken board member John

Stringer has led to the code of

conduct matter.

Mr Stringer has been

outspoken in the past about

board decisions, in particular

the Main North Rd bus priority

project.

Nor’West News revealed

last month an independent

facilitator was needed to oversee

a confidential meeting between

board members on September 24

because of ongoing conflict.

A request by Nor West News

under the Local Government

Official Information Meetings

Act for emails between Ms Jones

and Mr Stringer has been refused

by the city council.

CLASH: It is understood that ongoing tension between Papanui-Innes Community Board chairwoman Ali Jones and outspoken

board member John Stringer has led to a code of conduct investigation.

Last month, Ms Jones

told Nor’West News Mr Stringer

was a “relative newcomer to the

board” who “needed clarification

regarding the process.”

Her comment prompted an

angry response from Mr Stringer,

who claimed confidentiality had

been breached.

Neither Mr Stringer or Ms

Jones would discuss the code of

conduct investigation.

The city council said it had

refused to release the emails

between Ms Jones and Mr

Stringer because “it would

inhibit the exchange of free and

frank opinions in future.” The

city council also said “public

exposure of those opinions can

sometimes have a chilling effect

on people’s willingness to express

themselves openly, honestly and

completely in future.”

The city council considered

that the correspondence between

Ms Jones and Mr Stringer was an

exchange constituting a “free and

frank expression of opinion”.

The city council said it would

not comment on the code of

conduct investigation until it was

completed.

Meanwhile, code of conduct

complaints against Coastal

Ward city councillor David East,

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board chairwoman Kim Money

and deputy chairman Tim Sintes,

and Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham over allegations

council staff had tampered with

WHAT GOES on tour, stays on tour, as the

The same might apply to the Papanui-

Innes Community Board: What goes on

On page 1 today, we reveal a code of conduct complaint

involving a board member, or members, is being investigated by

the city council.

But the council and board mouths are zipped over who is

involved and what the code of conduct complaint is specifically

about.

We know there are tensions between board chairwoman

Ali Jones and board member John Stringer, which we have

The code of conduct complaint takes it to a new level.

$10k to enhance Bishopdale

• By Ashleigh Monk

BISHOPDALE VILLAGE Mall is

set to be rejuvenated for the first

time in more than 50 years.

Last week the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board granted

$10,000 to the

Bishopdale

Regeneration

Project.

The money

will be spent

on beautifying

the area and

Amanda

Nuttall

developing

fun, friendly

spaces for the

community.

Suggestions for the project

included a mural, outdoor

markets, new seating, pathways,

plantings, improvements to toilet

blocks, outdoor chess and ping

pong, and new signage.

Bishopdale Businesses

Association chairwoman

Amanda Nuttall said she was

glad funding for the upgrade had

been approved.

“Bishopdale Village was

started in the 1960s and has had

no significant upgrade in that

time,” she said.

“A start has been made with

REGENERATE: The Bishopdale Village Mall will be rejuvenated

for the first time since it was established in the 1960’s.

the library and community

centre but it would be great to see

more of the village upgraded.”

She said the only challenge left

would be finding projects that

all businesses in the area were on

board with.

“One of the challenges

here is that the buildings

are individually-owned and

ensuring all landlords commit to

the upgrade is not easy.”

She hopes the upgrade

will draw more people to the

Bishopdale area.

“The population in this area

is growing and this is an easilyaccessible

and convenient hub of

the community.”

The association has been

working with the community

board and Development

Christchurch Ltd to pinpoint

what people wanted to see in

the area. DCL chief executive

Rob Hall said working with the

community on the project was

essential.

“The aim has been to canvass

the views of the people and

groups who

live and work

in the village to

identify possible

opportunities to

improve and revitalise

the area,

attract more

people and create

a more lively Rob Hall

space,” he said.

“A recent design workshop

identified some possible actions

for the area, including working

with the business association

to create niche attractions

and branding, some ‘quick

win’ projects to liven-up the

space, potential commercial

redevelopments to create better

connections and a review of land

use.”

Community board chairman

Sam MacDonald said it was

“about time” the Bishopdale area

had an upgrade.

“We need to stop talking about

this stuff and just do it.”

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.

Concerns over

Riccarton Rd

tree plan

• By Anan Zaki

TREES COULD soon line the

middle of Riccarton Rd – but the

city council proposal has been

slammed by residents.

It is planning to plant 27

columnar hornbeam trees along

the median of Riccarton Rd

between Clarence and Matipo

Sts.

In a strongly worded letter

to Mayor Lianne Dalziel, city

council chief executive Karleen

Edwards and Wigram MP

Megan Woods, the Central

Riccarton Residents’ Association

said the proposal is “extremely

dangerous”.

Association chairman Garth

Wilson said about 80 members

were asked about the trees and

90 per cent opposed it.

“Riccarton Rd is narrow

as it is and ambulances and

fire engines inevitably have to

travel down the middle of the

road because of traffic build

up, especially since there are

four sets of traffic lights from

Clarence St to Matipo St,” the

residents said.

The trees are part of stage two

of the Riccarton Rd upgrade,

scheduled to begin early next

year.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Battle won to make road safer

• By Ashleigh Monk

ONE OF the city’s biggest

employers has won the battle to

make a Harewood road safer.

Tait Communications

approached the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board in an effort

to have no-stopping restrictions

and a flush median outside the

entrance to its Wooldridge Rd

business.

The company, which employs

more than 400 people at the

site on Woolrdridge Rd, raised

concerns last month over the low

visibility at the entrance to its car

park.

The recent upgrade to Russley

Rd banned right turns from

Wairakei Rd onto Russley Rd,

which has resulted in more traffic

using Wooldridge Rd.

There have been two reported

crashes along the section of

Wooldridge Rd in the last five

years and four within the last

eight years.

All the recorded crashes were

located at driveways and three of

those were directly outside the

Tait Communications site.

A Tait Communications

spokesperson said the company

was “extremely pleased” with

SUCCESS: Tait Communications has won the battle to have

no-stopping restrictions and a flush median put along

Wooldridge Rd near its headquarters (inset).

the community board’s decision

to allow no-stopping lines and a

flush median to be installed on

the road.

“As the road has become more

heavily used, the number of

recorded near-miss events had

made this a major safety risk for

our staff members and visitors,”

the spokesperson said.

“The council and community

board members have been very

responsive to this and the

proposed changes will resolve all

of the concerns we have had.”

The decision to approve the

proposal was delayed after the

community board requested city

council staff look into other

options that would save on-street

parking.

However, community

board chairman Sam

MacDonald said parking

could not be saved.

But he was happy with the

outcome.

“All we asked for was that

council staff went back to

Wooldridge Rd for two weeks to

look at whether we can keep any

car parking,” he said.

“They’ve gone and done

that, and they couldn’t keep

any because of the safety

requirements.

“There has been no additional

cost. There’s been a slight

delay of a couple of weeks, but

we communicated that with

Tait, who were obviously quite

concerned, and they’re quite

comfortable with where we are at

with the decision.”

No new bus

stops for

Gardiners Rd

• By Ashleigh Monk

A BID to install four bus stops

along Gardiners Rd has failed.

The bus stops were proposed

to accommodate changes to

the No 28 bus, which has had

its route extended to include

Bishopdale, Casebrook and

Northwood.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

agreed to monitor the road over

the next six months to see if

demand for more stops grows.

Board chairman Sam

MacDonald said the two

adjacent bus stops located

between Harewood and

Sawyers Arms Rds would

service the area in the

meantime.

“Council staff are going to

come back to us in six months

and see if there’s more demand

for another one,” he said.

“On that road at the

moment there are 16 people a

day using the bus, so the need

for it is just not there at the

moment.”

He said he understood

some bus-users would be

disappointed with the decision.

1300 parking offences near airport

Community

• By Anan Zaki

MORE THAN 1300 parking

offences have been recorded near

the Airport Business Park in

the business park.

The community group

represents affected Russley

residents.

People of Russley have been

fighting against car parking near

the business park since it opened

in 2010, he said.

Residents only parking cannot

come soon enough for residents,

Prof Bagchi said.

“In July 2017, we got 60min

parking [from 120min].”

But residents knew the 60min

parking limit would not work, he

said. “60min parking means you

need to have enforcement officers

continuously,” Prof Bagchi said.

“It is not very practical to

put an enforcement officer

completely dedicated for one

road.”

The high number of offences

proved residents fears that the

60min parking restrictions

would not work, Prof Bagchi

said. “So you can imagine how

miserably it has failed.”

Community board chairman

Sam MacDonald said the city

council currently does not have

ability to impose residents only

parking.

The city council is

currently reviewing consultation

for its draft suburban parking

policy, which would give it the

ability to impose residents only

parking.

Mr MacDonald said parking

enforcement officers need to

monitor streets near the business

park on a regular basis.

“The feedback I get [from

residents is] in some streets you

can’t move down them because

of the narrow nature when they

are blocked up.”

The board submitted in favour

of residents only parking in the

draft suburban parking policy,

Mr MacDonald said.

“What we need staff to be

really clear on when they

develop this [residents only

parking] is . . . we need to have

a really clear and structured

criteria where residents parking

applies.

“When there are significant

[parking] issues, we want to be

able to deal with them quickly,”

Mr MacDonald said.

Rules set to change at reserve

Aim to improve

safety at

Roto Kohatu

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE RULES at Roto Kohatu

Recreation Reserve are set to be

tightened.

Last week the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board approved a

proposal to improve safety at the

reserve.

Over the last

two months,

council staff

and board

members have

taken a closer

look at how the

reserve operates

Sam

MacDonald

and outlined

a number of

safety concerns.

The concerns

included damage to bollards and

gates, internal road safety, how

rangers spent their time and a

lack of clarity over who can use

the lake and at what time.

Several conflicts have been

started over the use of the lake,

and signage to indicate who is

using it has been raised to solve

SAFETY FIRST: The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board has approved safety improvements at Lake

Roto Kohatu Reserve.

the issues.

Community board chairman

Sam MacDonald said the safety

improvements will get under way

“as soon as possible.”

“It’s more about making the

reserve more accessible for

people to use, particularly over

summer, and managing the

growing demand,” he said.

“Most of it is under way or will

be under way as soon as possible.

We’ve got summer coming up, so

it’s important that we get those

things sorted.”

He said council staff will

monitor the lake over the

summer period to ensure users

follow the safety guidelines.

“Staff will come back to us

after summer to tell us how it

went, and what we need to do to

change it so we can make it the

best facility we can,” he said.

Board member Aaron Campbell

said the biggest issue is

managing access when demand

is high.“I haven’t heard of physical

fighting. However, I have

heard of verbal disagreements

and arguments,” he said.

“I understand why residents

and users can have differing

expectations and due to the

uniqueness of Roto Kohatu,

managing the space is not easy,

but as a organisation, we are trying

our very best as the reserve is

still being developed.”

“On days when 1000-2000 additional

people turn up, parking

too close to the water has been

identified as an issue and does

stretch the limits of the portaloos

on-site. This could become a

health issue.”

He said he was happy the

safety improvements are going

ahead. “I believe there are a

lot less incidents now than

there were earlier, so some

improvements have been

effective. But other issues do

arise and they need to be sorted

as well,” he said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

CBD parking

fix could cost

ratepayers

• By Julia Evans

SECRET discussions have been

held over how to fix parking

problems in the central city which

could come at a cost to ratepayers.

City councillors met last week

behind-closed-doors to consider a

report on “central city reduced fee

parking.”

The city council has refused

to release the report, or answer

questions about it. It was deemed

“commercially sensitive” for the

public and city councillors remain

tight-lipped.

But private car park owners and

developers have been approached

to see what role they can play.

Central city retailers have

been struggling to compete with

suburban malls which offer free

parking.

But property developer

Antony Gough, who is building

a 400-space parking building

on Hereford St, said there has

been discussion with the council

around rates rebates or subsides

for private providers.

The report was left on the table

without a recommendation being

approved and will be debated

again by city councillors.

A “RARE and magical moment”

caught on camera saw a Hornby

teen win a photography award.

Zoe Evans, 15, won the 11 to

15 category for a close-up shot of

a Bellbird inside Auckland Zoo’s

aviary.

“When the Bellbird finally

realised I was there, it looked

straight at me with its beautiful

brown eyes and I took my final

shot. It was truly a rare and

magical moment,” she said.

Anna Babington’s heartbreaking

shot of a injured seal

by a boat propeller was second

place.

Max Eadie-Lilley won the

under-10 category with his

moody monochrome shot of a

school of fish in a Lake Taupo

dam.

Evans’ photo (top left) won the

11 to 15-year-old category in

Canterbury Museum’s youth

photography competition.

He took the photo, which he

titled Stuck, during a weekend

away with his family.

Dylan Fisher, 10, was runnerup

for his portrait of a Kea,

which judges said captured the

bird’s intelligence and famously

cheeky nature.

The competition titled

Amazing Animals attracted

more than 200 entries from

photographers aged 15 and under

throughout Canterbury.

The judges convened last week

to choose a winner and runnerup

from the two categories.

Canterbury Museum curator

natural history Cor Vink, who

was one of the competition’s

three judges, said the panel was

blown away by the quality of the

entries.

“We were just amazed by

the talent these young people

had. We recently hosted the

Natural History Museum’s

Wildlife Photographer of the Year

exhibition, and I honestly think

some of these shots would not

have looked out of place on the

walls of that exhibition.”

New life for Ballantynes’ Xmas window

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A PROP maker who has worked

on some of the biggest movies

to be filmed in New Zealand has

helped bring Ballantynes’ iconic

Christmas windows to life this

year.

Simon Hames has led a high

flying career working on the sets

of King Kong and The Lord of the

Rings.

In 1999 he won the Supreme

WOW Award for making wearable

chairs for the World of

Wearable Art festival.

After starting work as a visual

merchandise team member this

year, Mr Hames was tasked with

building the Christmas window.

With the talent of Mr Hames

on board, it was the reason Ballantynes

decided to create the

windows in-house this year as

opposed to outsourcing.

Visual merchandise manager

Danielle Casey, who led the charge

for this year’s theme, also has a

distinguished background in design,

having created windows for

department stores Harrods and

Selfridges in the United Kingdom. ​

Pearl Schwalger-Smith, who

has worked in a range of roles at

Ballantynes in the past 10 years

has also been heavily involved in

designing the project.

It is the first time in about 20

years the windows have been

designed in-house.

Miss Casey said the project has

been a “labour of love” with her

team working on it since April.

She said the theme of mice was

inspired by popular children’s

films featuring mice including

The Borrowers, Mouse Hunt and

Stuart Little.

Ballantynes has made

Christmas extra special for kids

in more ways than one this

year, creating a limited edition

children’s book to match the

window’s theme.

The book called The Merry

Mice of Dunstable House was

donated to every primary school

in the city and Timaru.

The setting for the Christmas

window and book is at Dunstable

House, the original building

where Ballantynes was established

in 1854.

It tells the tale of a little family

of mischievous mice living with

humans at Christmas time.

Ballantynes has also spread

the Christmas cheer by making

Dunstable.

With every teddy bear sold

throughout December, one is

donated to the children’s ward at

Christchurch Hospital.

Marketing manager Anna

Powell said Ballantynes wanted

to do a couple of little things for

the community as a way of giving

back at Christmas time.

The Merry Mice of Dunstable

House is on sale for $19 until the

end of December.

Fire rages, homes at risk

MP grows

a mo for a

good cause

WAIMAKARIRI MP Matt

Doocey has raised $800 for men’s

health during Movember.

He hoped to raise awareness

and support for the Movember

Foundation and men’s health

issues such as prostate and

testicular cancer, and mental

health and suicide prevention.

“Movember is something we

as Kiwi blokes can get behind

by participating, promoting and

donating to this worthy cause.

While I’ve had a few laughs

along the way, men’s health is

something we should be creating

awareness around to reduce the

number of men suffering from

serious health issues like these,”

he said. Mr Doocey abandoned

his attempt to grow a goatee to go

with his new moustache earlier

in the month, on the advice of his

constituents.

“By week three, my wife

informed me I was showing a

strong resemblance to the Swedish

Chef from the Muppets,” he said.

The bald MP said he was aware

that the electorate had been

waiting to see what colour his

facial hair would grow out as.

Stroke victim a step closer

to getting his tricycle

• By Anan Zaki

STROKE VICTIM Grant

Cowan is edging closer to

getting back cycling.

Friends of the former police

officer and triathlete rallied

around the him after he suffered

two strokes 18 months

ago.

They set up a Go Fund Me

page to buy a recumbent tricycle

for the 52-year-old former

Papanui resident.

Donations from 149 people

reached $12,300 last Friday.

They need $16,500 to buy the

trike, which is able to be ridden

while sitting down.

Mr Cowan lost the ability to

speak, and lost feeling in his

right arm and right leg after

the stroke. He now lives at St

John of God care facility in

Halswell.

Mr Cowan’s friend of 30

years Rodger Wyatt told

Western News in October

that when he tried the trike

at the Bike Expo, they saw

an expression unseen for 18

months.

“The look on his face, he was

just absolutely humming.”

McKay exhibition in Akaroa

• By Louis Day

RETIRED REDWOOD

photographer Donald McKay’s

work is will be exhibited in the

Akaroa Museum.

At the start of the year, Mr

McKay donated more than

40,000 individual frames to the

museum which date from the

late 1940s to the early 1980s.

The collection of photos

document social and community

events, weddings, farming

activities and other aspects of

life across the Banks Peninsula.

Mr McKay, 84, grew up on a

farm in Le Bons Bay and began

taking photos at Christchurch

Boy’s High School when he

joined the camera club.

Mr McKay sold his bike and

his best pair of shoes to buy a

second-hand camera.

“We had some really, really

good instructors, including

Len Casbolt and Frank

McGregor. Also, I used to

spend a lot of time at my

uncle Stan McKay’s as he was

the Christchurch Star Sun

photographer and his son

Ross was a skilled horse racing

photographer. I used to admire

their beautiful cameras and

enlargers . . . I’m not sure what

I liked more, the photography

or the equipment.”

Mr McKay started his first

photography job in 1961 at

Burwood Hospital as a medical

photographer, but would still

travel back to the peninsula

during the weekend to photograph

various community

events. Museum collections

manager Daniel Smith said the

exhibition would focus on Mc-

Kay’s work during the 1950s.

“During the 50s he was

as photography. He did a lot a

also take his camera with him

would include some of Mc-

Kay’s most explicit work.

City chorus puts

on festive show


By Ashleigh Monk

THE Christchurch City Chorus

is putting on a festive show to

get everyone into the Christmas

spirit.

On December 15 the choir will

take the stage to perform The

Magic of Christmas.

Musical director Virginia

Humphrey-Taylor said the show

would include Christmas carols,

skits, poems and dancing.

“We want to share the joy and

music of Christmas with people,”

she said.

“We want everyone to come

and sing carols with us. It’s

something for the whole family

to get everyone excited for

Christmas.”

She said about 80 members of

the choir would be performing.

“We’ve got quartets singing,

we’ve got small groups singing,

we’ve got about 20 children who

will be performing,” she said.

“We’ll sing a lot of the classic

Christmas carols, but there will

also be a few songs that people

won’t know; songs from around

the world about Christmas.”

The show would give members

a chance to get some practice

in before the Christchurch City

Chorus heads to New Orleans

for a performance in September.

“We’re doing as many shows

as we can so we are prepared,”

she said.

She said she hoped to showcase

the group and encourage

new members to join.

“We’re looking for new

members all the time. There’s

always a turn over of membership

because people move away

or their lives change, so this is a

chance for people who might be

interested in joining to see what

we do.”

The Magic of Christmas will

be performed on December 15,

with a matinee at 2pm and an

evening show at 7pm.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $20

for seniors and $10 for children,

and can be purchased at www.

ccchorus.co.nz or by contacting

Jeannette McGrath on 021 976

572.

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 Strowan’s Amy Straker,

Burwood’s Melanie Luckman

and Sumner’s Hannah Wheeler

and.

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

working with the city council’s

enliven places project fund for

this tour.

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.

Rangi’s sporting success

• By Ashleigh Monk

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

has had a stellar week in sports,

with successes in water polo and

tennis.

Rangi Ruru’s junior water polo

team won the South Island Junior

Secondary School Water Polo

Championships.

Rangi Ruru assistant director

of sport Mandy Anderson said

the team had an “incredible”

game.

“An outstanding effort by the

team culminated in winning

the final against St Margaret’s,

11-9. A huge shout-out to our

wonderful coach, Jackson Olds,

for his dedication to and belief in

the girls,” she said.

“The team has trained exceptionally

hard all term; training in

the rain and in the early morning.

They deserve the success

their efforts have produced.”

Ms Anderson added a special

mention to year 9 student Agatha

Weston for selection in the south

island tournament team.

She also congratulated year 10

student Eve Weston for her selection

as the most valuable player of

the tournament.

Out of the pool and onto the

court, Rangi Ruru student Tessa

McCann has retained her title as

the Canterbury Open Women’s

Champion.

The year 12 student competed

for the title last week.

The final was a tight three set

match which saw the 16-year-old

win 7-5 in the third set, and hold

on to her title as the Canterbury

Open Women’s Champion for the

second year in a row.

Rangi Ruru tennis convenor

Anne Bissland said both Tessa

and Year 10 Jade Feneon, who

also competed, did exceptionally

well against strong competition.

“We have to remember that

these students are playing an

open section, against much older

competitors,” she said.

“Both girls are playing very

well, at a high level. We are proud

of both girls who put absolutely

everything into their tennis,” said

Ms Bissland.

CREATIVE: Citycare property supervisor Doug Peek is

always on the look-out for items that can be recycled for the

sensory garden at Rawhiti Domain.

Playground gets

new equipment

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 sevenyear-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

Government funding, only

community support.

“Without the backing of

organisations like Citycare

we simply wouldn’t exist,” Mr

Dugan said.

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.

Deck the halls

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a decoration or two around the home.

Whether its outdoor lights with a waving Santa or

just draping tinsel across your mantelpiece, there are

many ways to celebrate the festive season in your home.

Go natural

Driftwood painted white with LED lights wrapped

around, or pine cones with a touch of silver spray

paint, make beautiful natural additions to the home

at this time of year. If you have a tree branch around

the home, why not cut it up into discs and spray paint

white stars and reindeer on the disc. Drill a hole in the

top and thread some gardeners string through the hole

and you have an instant decoration to hang on the tree

or somewhere around the home. Cover polystyrene

balls in ripped linen, hessian and cotton strips. These

can either be hung up or a number placed in a bowl on

the table.

Tinsel town

Many love the glitter and sparkle that tinsel brings

but how about using it in different ways. A threetiered

cake plate with tinsel laid on each plate with

baubles then placed on top, can look really impressive

as a centrepiece for the table. Make your own wreath

by wrapping tinsel around and around a polystyrene

circle. Hang just as it is, or hot glue gun baubles on to

create extra wow.

Table setting

Sometimes the simplest decorations on the table

can look the most stunning. A beautiful napkin rolled

up with a piece of red and white ribbon, or rosemary

wreath looks amazing. Why not place a hessian runner

down the middle of the table and add greenery and

candles in jars on top to create a wonderful centrepiece.

If you have a children’s eating table, why not put a

long piece of brown paper as a table cloth. Draw large

circles where the plates can go and write Christmas

questions beside each plate outline. A little bottle with

a red and white paper straw is great too. Put a jar of

red and green crayons on the table. When the kids are

finished their dinner, they can play noughts and crosses

or hangman or just draw pictures.

If you’re looking for ideas why not check out

Pintrest. Here you will find every style and every

technique to make sure your home looks like a

Christmas wonderland this festive season.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

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.

Physical Sense Gym & Physio is located

at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham.

There is a bus stop in front of the door

and there is ample parking. To enquire

about specialised exercise classes or

physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577

ACCESSIBILITY: Aaron Campbell wants to make the city more accessible for

people with a disability.

Community board

criticised for

not supporting

disability legislation

KIDSTUFF

Play, laugh, learn. These are the essential

ingredients for a successful Pre-School

education. These crucial early years are to be

nurtured, shaped and cherished as your child

takes their first steps in education.

Research states that play may be the single

most important things that humans do. “Our

play based learning approach supports your

child as they begin their exciting journey as a

lifelong learner” says Principal Scott Thelning.

Cathedral Grammar Pre-School teaches the

children of tomorrow, today.

At Cathedral Grammar Pre-School your

whole family is welcomed into the wider

embrace of the Grammar community

including whole school fun and functions,

services and support as well as smooth

transition to the Junior School and links to the

NOR’WEST NEWS

Cathedral Grammar

Pre-School located within

the heart of the city

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.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board member Aaron

Campbell talks about

the need to improve

accessibility for

disabled people in the

city

LAST WEEK I asked the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community Board

to request the city council supports in

principle new Government disability

legislation that makes access equitable for

all persons.

Your community board voted two in

favour. Seven, shamefully, were against the

motion.

Disability comes in many forms. It’s not

just physical; it’s sensory, cognitive, communicative

and mental health-related.

Community advocates, including the

Access Alliance, a group of 12 organisations

in the disability sector, overwhelmingly

support the principle to create a truly

accessible society that benefits everyone.

Members include the Blind Foundation,

CCS Disability Action, Cerebral Palsy

Society and Deaf Aotearoa.

New Zealand needs accessibility legislation

to implement, in various sectors,

minimum standards for access to everyday

things others take for granted, like transport,

public services, websites, buildings,

workplaces and events.

This is about universal human rights and

the core principles of the United Nations

Convention on the Rights of People with

Disabilities.

Led by MPs Poto Williams (Christchurch

East, Labour) and Shane Reti

(Whangarei, National), this initiative is

achieving cross party support in central

government.

It’s argued that businesses can’t afford to

comply. Advocates would argue how can

you afford not to?

One billion people in the world have

some form of disability, don’t you want to

increase your potential market?

When I’m older and less able, I’ll still

want to get around, eat out and do things.

We should all have that opportunity for

long term independence.

The NZ Institute of Economic Research

calculates accessibility legislation will save

$3 billion over 10 years in disability benefit

costs through better education and employment

outcomes, increasing productivity

by $862m and increasing tax revenues

by $387m per year.

This would annually increase GDP by

$1.45 billion.

New tourist markets will become available

and revenue will increase with higher

spending per visitor.

As our city is rebuilding, do we want to

grow our economy, improve the quality of

people’s lives and provide equal access for

all?

Last week, sadly, a selfish short-sighted

two to seven vote said no.

Start

it!

Pre-School

Here, it all begins

Located in the CBD and offering 20

hours ECE. Our Pre-School balances

play with stimulating young minds,

all while fostering values and instilling

good habits. Specialist art, music

and PE teachers take weekly lessons,

nurturing and extending children’s

early talents.

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.

REAL ESTATE

A pleasant surprise - “As Is, Where Is”

214B Mt Pleasant Rd, Mt Pleasant

Auction: From 12pm, Thursday 13 December, Harcourts Grenadier, 98 Moorhouse Ave – unless sold prior

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 4 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 3 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number: SM0133

Serving as an immaculate example of an as

is, where is property, this partially repaired

four-bedroom home enjoys exceptional

north-facing views over the sea and coastline

offering the ultimate hillside lifestyle.

With remediation three-quarters complete,

the vendors have now exceeded their cap and

don’t wish to proceed any further with the

remaining repairs, and therefore, they offer

this superbly presented home to a new buyer

who can live incredibly comfortably while

they finish the last of the work required in

their own time.

The property’s cladding has been repaired

and a new kitchen installed. The kitchen

exudes modern style with its granite

benchtops and breakfast bar, all benefiting

from an elevated outlook over the sea that

stretches across to Ferrymead.

The multi-level living layout includes a

breath-taking lounge on the central portion of

the first floor which features a double height

ceiling that contributes a sense of grandeur to

the space. From there, a small set of steps lead

you up to the kitchen and open plan dining

and living area where you can admire the

unobstructed views beyond. Lots of balconies

and decks provide outdoor flow and there is

some good flat lawn for children to play.

Four good sized bedrooms are serviced by

three bathrooms and a powder room, with the

master bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe

and an ensuite with a spa bath. One bedroom

has a kitchenette and could be used to hosts

guest or run Airbnb. There’s great level drive

on access with turning and internal access

triple car garaging which are further enticing

features of the property.

Located within easy reach of the various

coastal suburbs that lead you around to

Sumner Beach, this property also enjoys a

relatively straight-forward commute into the

city centre which will take you less than 20

minutes by car. Zoned and within walking

distance to Mt Pleasant School (decile 10).

Being sold on an as is, where is basis, this

property offers comfort and presents buyers

with the opportunity to complete the home

to their taste. Possibly the best we have

marketed!

Open Homes: Wednesday, Saturday &

Sunday 3:15pm - 4:00pm.

See you at the open homes or for a private

viewing or for more information contact

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

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.

U per Ri carton butcher Corey

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking t operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

September-May along with a Thai

f od truck.

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.
