additional

front line

policing

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MORE POLICE may be seen on

the streets of the eastern suburbs.

Police chiefs are considering assigning

more officers who will be

based at the New Brighton station.

Canterbury Metro Area Commander

superintendent Lane Todd

said front line staff in the east

maybe boosted with the increasing

numbers of recruits the Canterbury

region will be allocated over

the next three years.

“We do have some of our

response staff based out in New

Brighton. We are looking at increasing

there but Hornby might

also be another option,” he said.

Superintendent Todd said the

deployment of police officers will

be part of its wider planning for

the city, which will be looked at

next year.

The additional staff would come

from the 1800 allocation of police

officers the country is planned to

get in the next three years as part

of the Government’s $298 million

increase from the Budget 2018.

Canterbury will receive 121 of

the 1800 police officers.

I CAN sympathise with Tim Sintes, who

has been struck down with pneumonia

(page 7).

The all-round good guy from Southshore

has been laid very low in recent weeks.

I know exactly how he is feeling.

Pneumonia smashed me about 18 months ago. I don’t smoke and

I’m reasonably fit. And like Tim, I’ve no idea how I got it.

I lost 9kg in just over a week, spent four days in hospital and

was off work for three weeks (the longest time I have ever been).

The doctor initially said I had a dose of the flu and I was sent

on my way. A week later when I struggled back to the doctor, she

dispatched me to hospital.

Be careful out there.

Drivers face Xmas crackdown

RESERVE

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A ROAD safety initiative has

been launched to crack down

on drivers in the east as the

Christmas party season begins

to get under way.

Police based at the New

Brighton station will be setting

up major checkpoints to clamp

down on “fatal five” driving

offences.

The “fatal five” offences are

using a mobile phone while

driving, dangerous manoeuvres,

not wearing a seat belt, drink

driving and speeding.

Sergeant Jim Currie said office

break-ups and “tradie day” are

coming up which is always a

“major concern” for police.

“It is a big worry for us because

people don’t know their

limits and get behind the wheel

of a car when they shouldn’t. My

philosophy is if you think you

are over the limit you probably

are,” he said.

Last week police conducted

a checkpoint on Avondale Rd

between Breezes Rd and New

Brighton Rd.

In the 45 minutes police were

there, they issued two speeding

tickets for vehicles driving about

15km/h over the 50km/h speed

limit.

Brutally Honest

by Melanie Brown

The tell-all memoir from the loudest, proudest Spice Girl -

and the truth behind the headlines

As one-fifth of the iconic Spice Girls and judge on X Factor

and America’s Got Talent, Melanie Brown, a.k.a Scary

Spice, has been an international star since her twenties.

Brutally Honest is an expose of the struggles and acute pain

that lay behind the glamour and success.

With deep personal insight, remarkable frankness and

trademark Yorkshire humour, the book removes the mask

of fame and reveals the true story behind the Spice Girls, as

well as the horror of her most recent marriage and her 10

year struggle to be free.

Warrior

by Simon Mannering

Simon Mannering is one of elite sport’s great enigmas. From

2005 to 2018 he was a regular fixture in the Warriors and

Kiwis rugby league teams and has captained both. He is one

of only a handful of players to have played 300 NRL games

for one club and, remarkably, he’s the only one who has ever

done it flying back and forth across the Tasman every second

weekend. Yet little is known about him as he shuns the spotlight

and seldom does interviews.

Warriors and former All Blacks doctor John Mayhew rates

Simon alongside Richie McCaw and Buck Shelford for sheer

toughness and his ability to play through pain and illness is

legendary.

While the Warriors have been up and down over the years,

Simon Mannering has maintained a consistently high standard

of play and regularly led tackle counts.

Yet he was not a sporting prodigy. In Warrior, Simon explains

how he transformed himself from a sports-mad kid with

mediocre talents into one of the greats of New Zealand sport.

A Diamond in the Dust

by Frauke Bolten-Boshammer

The powerful true story of how one woman turned outback dust

into a diamond empire.

Within minutes of landing in Kununurra, Frauke Bolten had made

up her mind to get on a plane back home to Germany. The dusty

frontier town was no place for a woman. However, Frauke stayed,

determined to help her husband carve out a new life farming.

Tragedy struck just three years later when Friedrich took his own

life and she was left to raise their family alone.

Twenty-six years after she sold her first necklace, Kimberley Fine

Diamonds in Kununurra is now home to one of the world’s largest

collections of Argyle pink diamonds, with a client list that includes

Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. Frauke is credited for not only

pioneering an industry, but for putting the tiny outback town and its

precious diamonds on the map.

A Diamond in the Dust is a tale of love and loss, hardship and

heartache, but ultimately the inspiring story of how a young girl

from Germany overcame tragedy to pioneer a diamond empire in

one of the most unforgiving terrains on earth.

The Rescuers

by Laura Greaves

Dogs are renowned for their loyalty, and those saved from

animal shelters or rescue groups seem to be especially

devoted to the humans who have offered them a second

chance. In this extraordinary collection, meet the brave

dogs that have shown incredible courage – even risking

death – to protect their people.

There’s Leala, the Staffy who raced for help when her

two-year-old owner fell in a dam; Buddy, the labrador who

licked his owner awake to save her from a house fire; and

Brian, the pit bull who valiantly fought off three other dogs

to protect his owner.

From unforgettable moments of courage to heart-warming

tales of true loyalty, these are the stories of some of the

most heroic rescue dogs in the world.

Sewer repair key to building consents

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BUILDING CONSENTS in

Aranui, put on hold because of

capacity issues with the suburb’s

sewerage system, will likely

be granted when the system is

upgraded.

Aranui residents who have

failed to fix their earthquakedamaged

wastewater pipes has

led to the city council having

to upgrade the suburb’s entire

sewerage system.

The unrepaired earthquake

damage to the private wastewater

or stormwater pipes has

resulted in the system having to

cope with increased stormwater

flow and groundwater infiltration

– more than what it was

designed for.

As a result, 10 building

consents in the Aranui vacuum

sewerage system catchment has

been put on hold.

Two projects expecting to cost

more than $2.1 million is under

way by the city council to address

ongoing capacity issues.

The projects are expected to be

completed before Christmas.

City council’s three waters and

waste head John Mackie said it

is not accepting any new building

consents until the work is

completed.

“We will decide whether to accept

any new connections once

we have assessed the effectiveness

of this upgrade,” he said.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board member Tim Baker said

he is pleading with residents to

fix their lateral pipes because

he doesn’t think they realise the

effect it is having.

He said he understands the

decision but he thinks the city

council is wrong because 10 consents

are such a small number.

The city council’s first project

is to install a monitoring system

for each of the sewer system’s

collection chambers. Each collection

chamber connects to

about four to six houses.

The project costing about

$1.5 million, will allow the city

council to identify which collection

chambers suffer from high

stormwater inflow and groundwater

infiltration.

The city council will then

carry out further investigations

to work out if the problem is

a result of Aranui’s private or

public wastewater system.

A mighty

big clanger

THERE ARE clangers, and there

Last week, there was a

monumental clanger in Pegasus

Post.

And we have been bearing the

brunt of that clanger since – and

deservedly so.

In our 28-page advertising

supplement Life Is Great In The

East there was an article on the

yet-to-be-built beach front pool

facility and hot water pools.

The problem was the article

said the pool facility was operating,

gave its operating hours and

encouraged people to go along for

a swim.

But the queues are still a long

way off. It will take about 12

months to build once building

consent is granted.

So how did this error happen?

Let’s not go there.

But it would be fair to say

the writer has felt what it’s

like to be in hot water, but

here at the Pegasus Post we feel

there’s no point rubbing salt into

the wound, so we have left it at

that.

Yes, life in the east is great; and

it will be even better when the hot

water pools open.

But Superintendent Todd said

it has to look across the whole

city at where the best slots are for

The possibility of more staff has

Brighton Sergeant Jim

Currie.

He is calling for more

public safety team (frontline)

staff to be placed out

in New Brighton in the

next six to 12 months.

“I think New Brighton

is a place worth investing

he said.

Sergeant Currie said New

having more staff would be an

“extra deterrence”.

The call for more staff has been

backed by Bin Inn New Brighton

owner Nikki Griffin.

“The community has long since

the frontline staff walking the beat

. . . finally someone has listened to

what the people want,” she said.

‘Facelift’ for New Brighton’s clock tower

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

NEW BRIGHTON’S iconic clock

tower will be illuminated with

Christmas decorations.

But an unknown craftsman

has already got in on the action,

cutting a smiley face out of the

plastic packaging currently

wrapped around the clock tower

while it is under repair.

It comes as progress is

under way on the clock tower’s

earthquake and historical repairs.

The clock tower’s “facelift”

has received a positive response

from members of the Peoples

Independent Republic of New

Brighton.

Comments include “that sort

of graffiti is welcome”, “looks like

it is waving” and “that is so cute,

makes you smile back”.

Additional decorations are

planned to brighten the clock

tower with the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board approving

$500 towards the project at its

meeting last week.

The funding is from its

2018/19 Discretionary Response

Fund.

City councillor David East said,

hopefully, the decorations will

be installed fairly soon, before

Christmas.

“We are going to leave the

plastic there and put a bow

around it so it looks like a big

Christmas present and light it up

internally,” he said.

The city council has finished the

repair strategy for the clock tower

and it is preparing the necessary

documentation ahead of going

out to tender.

City council’s acting head of

parks Grant MacLeod said it will

not have information on when

the clock tower repairs will be

completed until the tenders have

been received.

The repairs were due to

be completed in September

but following investigations

(including the removal of paint

from the structure) the extent

of the damage became more

apparent.

‘Knocked for six’ with pneumonia

Fire rages, homes at risk

Coastal-Burwood

Community Board

deputy chairman Tim

Sintes has been in

hospital with pneumonia.

Julia Evans reports

TIM SINTES has been in

bed living off a diet of english

breakfast tea and Kurols cough

drops for the past five weeks.

It’s a big change for the 67-yearold

former fisherman, who can

normally be

But Mr

Sintes, who

is deputy

Tim Sintes

chairman of

Community Board, has been

“knocked for six” by a severe case

of pneumonia.

It’s landed him in hospital

twice.

“The day before it happened,

I was riding my mountain bike

over Rapaki with my daughter.

The next day, I woke up and I

thought I just had hay fever, I

had a blocked nose and that was

about it,” Mr Sintes said.

He started to shake and shiver

– the next morning he went to

the doctor.

“One listen to the croak in

my chest and he said ‘you’ve got

quite severe pneumonia’. I went

straight to get an X-ray and then

I was admitted to hospital.”

It went downhill from there.

“I just kept getting worse.

At first we thought it was

legionnaires’, I’d just redone the

lawns.”

Every year Mr Sintes’ hosts

a community Christmas

celebration at his Southshore

home and was relaying the lawn

for the occasion.

“But I’d been wearing a mask

infection that caused the

pneumonia, but nobody knows

how I got it.”

Mr Sintes said he knew nothing

about pneumonia before, but now

he is an expert.

“I did not realise the

seriousness of it. When people

would say to me they’ve got

pneumonia, I would think it was

just a bit like having the flu,” he

said.

There were moments he

thought he would never breathe

again when his lungs felt like

they were compressing in on

themselves.

“I was on oxygen in a severe

state for three days. I couldn’t

breathe and the bed was

wringing wet from me sweating

so much. One night I had the

most intense hallucinations.

They were in 3D colour. It was

horrible,” he said.

“You feel very vulnerable.

Usually I’m too busy to be sick.”

He was discharged from

hospital and felt like he was on

wow, I can do all these things.

Since I didn’t feel too bad, I

thought good, it was all over,” he

said.

Soon he was back in the surf,

mowing the lawns and just about

at the end of his first course of

antibiotics.

“There were about three or

four days where I couldn’t quite

believe it, I felt alive again.

One day I mowed the lawns, the

next day I was out for a coffee in

Sumner and I started feeling not

too good again,” Mr Sintes said.

His wife Jan suggested he go to

hospital.“The aches and shakes

were back and I thought, ‘no, I

don’t want to go to hospital’. But

I had to tell my wife to ring the

ambulance.”

He ended up spending another

six days in hospital.

Mr Sintes was discharged from

hospital for the second time 10

days ago.

The pneumonia had spread to

his other lung. “That taught me

a lesson. Listen to your doctor

when they say you need to rest. I

didn’t think it was much, I didn’t

think of the consequences and

now I’ve been sick for five weeks.”

After losing 8kg, Mr Sintes

believes he may be on the road to

recovery and has been getting his

appetite back.

“I’m so cautious now. I don’t

want to go backwards again.”

Although most people are

lamenting the cold start to

summer, Mr Sintes said it has

been great.

“It would be torture if I had

to lie here and it was sunny. I

enjoy life so much. Believe me,

this weather has been bad for

everyone except me.”

Six weeks ago, Mr Sintes

had an accident with a

chainsaw and cut his leg. Two

weeks later he was back out

surfing. “It’s hard to believe you

can be right two weeks after

being cut by a chainsaw, but

you can be knocked for six by

something like this.”

But the cause of his pneumonia

remains a mystery.

“It’s the strangest feeling.

I’m the kind of person that

needs explanations and needs a

reason, but this time it could be

anything,” he said.

Mr Sintes said people had

asked if it was related to stress

from his city council work and

the code of conduct investigation

he and Coastal Ward city

councillor David East, Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

chairwoman Kim Money and

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham are facing over

their comments alleging city

council staff tampered with the

District Plan, which affected

property owners in flood prone

areas.

“I can easily say it’s not. I’m not

a stress kind of person. My way

of relaxing is being busy, that’s

different.” Raising the issue has

been a “weight off my shoulders,”

he said.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HAMPSHIRE ST has always

had a reputation as being one of

the city’s meanest streets in one

of its meanest suburbs.

But the main drag that dissects

Aranui is now full of colour as

part of an ongoing campaign

by the Aranui neighbourhood

policing team to brighten up the

area.

Murals have been placed on

the shop walls in Hampshire

St this week, courtesy of street

artists and students from Haeata

Community Campus.

A key piece of artwork, which

reflects Aranui’s character

and past, is by Te Kupenga o

Aranui youth worker and mentor,

Silivelio Fasi.

Fasi, 28, spent a lot of his

childhood being raised in the

area.

“I felt like I was adopted,

they took me in when I could

have easily been hanging out in

Woolston and Phillipstown,” he

said.

Fasi said when he was thinking

about concepts and ideas

for his artwork he took into

consideration what he felt made

up Aranui.

Words Fasi strongly believed

in, such as “hope, whanau, love

and unity” and well-known places

that pay homage to Aranui’s

past, became the background of

the artwork.

The main element of the

artwork is superheroes in motion,

which represents power

and positivity and shows the

suburb is moving forward postearthquake.

Aranui High School and old

bus stops – the No 5 Southshore

bus route which no longer exists

because of the earthquakes – are

items Fasi built into his picture.

“It is basically one of those

things, only if you are from

Aranui, you would look at that

number and go, oh, my gosh,

that is the bus . . . the cool thing

about it is every community has

something like that,” he said.

Anchor points in Aranui such

as Big Gary’s Fish & Chips and

Peter’s Fish & Chips, also feature

in the art.

“It was almost like a shout out

to say, hey, I noticed you in my

childhood and that was always

the hang out spot. It was basically

a thank you,” Fasi said.

Constable Jules Atkinson said

the idea behind the murals was

to bring colour and “good vibes”

to the area.

She said some of the murals

had up to 50 students paint them

creating murals.

The artwork was displayed

at a culture night at Haeata

and showcased at the Justice and

Christmas wishes

from the team at Harcourts Gold

Parklands and New Brighton

The team at Harcourts

Gold Parklands and New

Brighton would like to

take this opportunity to

wish you all a very happy

and safe Christmas.

Nikila Creagh

HARCOURTS GOLD EASTSIDE SALES MANAGER

Tis the season... As 2018 comes to a close I, like so many

others, tend to reflect on what we have managed to accomplish

throughout the past year. I also look forward to that New Year

clean slate, and what 2019 might hold for us moving forward.

Again, it has been a year of positive change and

challenges for our team at both the Parklands

and New Brighton offices. The property market

has proven stable, requiring our hard working

consultants to utilise and gain more knowledge in

and around a wide variety of property, and to think

outside the square in regards to marketing options

that are available to our clients.

Further development locally has meant that our

community is starting to thrive once again, and it is

so satisfying and exciting to see numerous lengthy

projects coming to fruition which will so benefit our

community and the people that live here. I don’t

believe we would be this advanced if it weren’t for

the passionate locals who love their neighbourhood,

have provided a voice for the east side, and made

things happen.

It has been such a pleasure to be able to give back

to a variety of community groups this past year by

way of volunteering time, goods, or financially via our

Harcourts Foundation Grants. Should you be involved

with a not for profit group that could do with some

assistance, please feel free to contact us in 2019.

Should you be looking to make a career change

in the New Year, it may be of interest to know that

we will be seeking new additions to join our award

winning team. Whether you are an established

consultant, or if you are a self-starter who likes

a challenge, with an interest in property and

people, give me a call for a confidential chat.

Nikila ph. 0275175645.

Despite our offices being closed briefly over the

holiday period, our consultants will be available

and happy to assist during this time.

Contact our after-hours service and we will

put you in touch with one of the team.

We wish you and your family all the

very best for a safe, happy Christmas

and New Year and look forward to

helping you achieve your property

goals in 2019. A tremendous

thank-you to all those who have

sold, bought and/or referred

us to friends and colleagues

throughout the current year.

Merry Christmas!

Rawhiti School’s twilight fair a success

MORE THAN $20,000 has

been raised to go towards a new

playground at Rawhiti School.

The school held a successful

twilight fair, with about 2000 attending

the event.

The funds raised will go

towards a 7.8m climbing frame,

which is expected to be installed

before the beginning of the new

school term next year.

The school’s Parent-Teacher

Association co-chairwoman

Steph Haskell said the fair

was “really great” and it had

lots of support from local businesses.

“I think some of the best

things about the fair that I

really love the most was all the

entertainment . . . we have got

lots of musical students at the

school,” she said.

Pupils put on performances

involving rock bands, dancing,

school choir, kapa haka, ukuleles

and its Pasifika group.

“They provided over four hours

of entertainment and the school

has a wee outdoor amphitheatre

fixed up this year. We hadn’t really

had a massive chance to use

it,” Ms Haskell said.

The event was sponsored by

businesses including McCain,

Hellers, Ray White New Brighton,

Mike Pero, Harcourts Gold

Parklands and Happy Hire.

Ms Haskell said due to the

generosity of so many businesses,

it meant activities at the fair cost

no more than $2.

There was a range of activities

including pony rides, obstacle

courses and “dunk a teacher.”

Arts and crafts, toiletries and

jewellery made by the pupils were

also sold along with vegetables

grown at the school were

harvested and sold within 15min.

Richmond’s way forward is in sight

Tanya

Didham

writes

about how

Otakaro Avon River Corridor

draft regeneration plan will

impact Richmond

AVEBURY House has

experienced several

transformations since its origins

in the 1850s – a doctor’s cottage,

a grand family home, a youth

hostel, a quake victim and

now, heading into 2019, a fullyrefurbished

community asset.

Richmond has weathered more

than its fair share of transformation

too, but as we approach eight

years since a kink in the earth’s

surface changed everything, we

are beginning to see the way forward

– the next transformation.

Bordering the red zone as we

do, whatever happens in that

quake-affected river corridor is

going to have a big impact on us,

and our communities.

The waiting-to-know is almost

over.

Regenerate Christchurch has

released its draft plan, and it feels

GRAND: Avebury House has been transformed, it is now a fully-refurbished community asset.

like they have listened to what so

many of us have been saying –

restore the health of the river.

Move forward by respecting

our past heritage – not just our

built heritage, but our cultural

and natural heritage too.

In 1851 Dr Samuel Grundy

bought the section Avebury now

stands on, and built a modest

house, naming it after his hometown

in England.

At that time the South

Island was still referred to

as New Munster; the entire European

population of New Zealand

was just under 27,000 (Maori

numbered around 56,000) and

the Otakaro-Avon got its first

footbridge, crossing the river

where Worcester St does now.

Already by then a huge amount

of native bush had been cleared,

but Canterbury long-tailed bats

were still thriving, native bush

still lined the waterways, and tui

were an ever-present songbird.

Here at Avebury, we’re excited

to see the river walkways and

cycleways open up; for native

planting to start filling the gaps

and cracks that still remind us

of what’s gone while bringing

back a little of what was lost long

before.

And for projects that bring

people and activity back to our

community.

Let Regenerate Christchurch

know (before the consultation

closes on December 19) that you

like where they’re going with this

because here in Richmond, we’re

ready for a green and vibrant

future.

College plans farewell

KINDNESS: Twelve Marian College students put on a

Christmas party for visitors from Age Concern Canterbury. ​

Marian students spread

some Christmas cheer

A YOUNG Vinnies Group

from Marian College has helped

spread some Christmas cheer to

the elderly.

Twelve students hosted a

Christmas party for eight

visitors from Age Concern

Canterbury recently.

It aimed to help bring joy to

people who may be alone at

Christmas.

Year 10 student Amy

Williamson said the party went

well and it was nice to see the joy

in people’s faces as they bonded

with each other.

The Young Vinnies Group

was established to support the St

Vincent de Paul Society’s work

to help people in need.

The students have also hosted

morning tea events for elderly

visitors and run campaigns to

collect food cans for the society.

Said year 9 student Anna

McKey: “It was nice knowing

we could organise something

that we knew would be helping

others and contributing to wider

society.”

LINWOOD COLLEGE is

planning a special farewell

celebration to mark the

demolition and replacement

of its school buildings on the

current site.

The celebration is planned for

April 5-6 and will mark the start

of a new chapter in the school’s

history.

The celebration committee is

made up of past students and

teachers from the college.

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD

This year has been particularly special in that so many of our past students and staff

have responded to our call to join a new group. Named Rauru, the group has been

formed to strengthen and support our Marian College community. Past students and

staff of Marian College, St Mary’s College (Christchurch) and McKillop College, are

warmly invited to register for Rauru and help us shape the future of Marian.

Collective dialogue and strategic visioning are underway as we prepare for a new

school. Work includes development of a brief to ensure our Special Catholic Character,

values and culture are captured and reflected in our new school.

We appreciate Marian College is part of the bigger picture and we support the Bishop

in taking due care of process and in making informed decisions for the benefit of the

Catholic Diocese of Christchurch as a whole. The old saying is true – good things

take time.

Thank you to our Board of Trustees, our school staff and community, and members of

the Marian Foundation for your support and fantastic work throughout 2018.

To our Marian girls – relax and enjoy a well-earned holiday. We look forward to

having you back refreshed, inspired and ready for 2019 at Marian College.

And finally, congratulations to our 2018 Marian leavers:

we wish you all the very best and please stay in touch.

Wishing you good health and blessings this Christmas.

Jan Paterson

Marian College Board of Trustees

THE GIFT OF GIVING

Our Young Vinnies Group helps support the important work of the

Society of St Vincent de Paul. Recently the group spent a lunchtime

wrapping Christmas presents for the Vinnie’s Christmas Party for

people in need.

Marian College has a long tradition of service. Both students and staff

members are actively involved and contribute positively to the wider

community. All students complete at least six hours of meaningful

service within the school and community every year.

PRIZE WINNERS

WHIRLWIND

WOW TRIP

Congratulations to Catherine Ryan (right)

and Louise Daly (left) who have been

awarded 2018 Marian College dux and

proxime accessit respectively.

Marian College Principal Mary-Lou

Davidson says major prize winners

demonstrate exceptional performance

and dedication across all aspects of life

at Marian College – in academia, special

character, leadership, music, sport,

environment, culture and service.

The Marian College PTA Grace Awards

are very special awards for senior students

who quietly go about their learning, being

kind and caring, participating in school

life and sometimes managing through

challenges. These students often go ‘under

the radar’ and as the award criteria says

– they just get on with school and are not

always officially recognised. This year

Grace Awards were presented to Mia

Blyth, Renee Rae, Zoe Frame, Molly Ford

and Hannah Manalaysay.

A full list of prize recipients and

photographs are on the College website.

IT’S

BUSINESS TIME!

Recently, Year 10 Marian College

students had the opportunity to pitch

their business ideas to a panel of judges

as part of the three-day Young Enterprise

BP Business Challenge programme.

The hands-on learning event creates

opportunities for students to develop

their skills, engage with local business

people and learn how a good business

works. The programme covers learning

in English, Mathematics and Statistics,

Social Sciences, Digital Technology and

Commerce subjects.

Described by some as the highlight

of the year, senior students studying

textiles at Marian College have the

opportunity to travel to Wellington for a

two-day whirlwind WOWtrip. The group

experienced the World of WearableArt

Awards Show, explored two tertiary

institutes offering textile and design

programmes and visited the Beehive.

“The show was incredible with amazing

outfits and dancers. This was a wonderful

way to end the term,” says Year 12 Marian

College student Phoebe O’Regan.

The group also attended the Suffrage 125

exhibition Whakatū Wāhine at Museum of

New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.

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 sments 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 themselves 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-Innes

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

planned 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 of funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jones 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 annual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments are 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 apartments suffered 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 this stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting more experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing is scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about setting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Rolleston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

Mark A pleton and member

in a bid to educate pupils on the

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

their horses Tommy and Kruze

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

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

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.”

Ms Jone said the board’s role

• 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.

Winder was part of the Pure

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.
