KYLE PARK is the new preferred

location for the Hornby mega

centre but the community

remains split over the decision.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board last week

recommended to the city council

that Kyle Park should be home

to the $35.7 million customer

services, library, recreation and

leisure centre.

The community

board

was split over

the decision,

with the recommendation

narrowly passing

by five votes

to four.

Board member

Vicki Buck

and city councillor Vicki Buck

said because only one vote separated

the decision, it was more

open to challenge.

“Kyle Park was not my first

choice, but it is the next best

choice.”

Cr Buck originally favoured

Denton Park, which was ruled

out earlier this year.

I CAN sympathise with Tim Sintes, who

has been struck down with pneumonia

(pages 10 and 12).

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.

Motel loses fight against skate park

• By Louis Day

A SUMNER motel owner’s bid

to stop a skate park from being

constructed across the road has

failed.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

approved 26 Nayland St as the

location for the Bays Area skate

park.

Sumner Bay Motel owner

Roger Evans expressed his

concerns throughout his

deputation to the board that the

skate park would disturb his

customers.

“I’m not against a skate park

but I think the Nayland St site

is going to affect my business

because of the acoustics.”

Mr Evans also said the

Nayland St site was not the “best

value for money for ratepayers.”

The skate park on Nayland St

would be smaller than it would

have been on other sites due to

a considerable portion of the

money being allocated towards

rockfall mitigation.

The motion to approve the

Nayland St site as the location

for the skate park was carried

unanimously by the board.

However, some of the members

still had their concerns about

the site. Community board

member and city councillor Yani

Johanson “reluctantly” supported

the decision. “This has been an

issue that has gone on for a very

long time. I’m just disappointed

it’s going to be a small skate park

and half the money is going

towards rockfall mitigation.”

Cr Johanson said it was vital

the design of the park catered for

local businesses in the area.

“We really need to get a good

grasp of noise issues and how

through the design those things

can be mitigated and if it comes

down to it and it’s not possible

then we may need to look for

somewhere else.”

The board has the option to

change the location of the skate

park if it is not satisfied with the

design. However, if the design

is confirmed by the board next

year, construction of the park is

set to start in spring 2020.

LOCATION:

Yani Johanson

‘reluctantly’

supported the

Nayland St site.

CONCERNS: The owner of

the Sumner Bay Motel is

worried noise will affect his

business.

talks about

how the

has helped

the school get ready to

move into its new home

WHAT A strong and resilient

community we have here in

Redcliffs.

We are just short of one year

away from moving into our

brand new school, which has

only been made possible by the

strength of this community.

Has fighting against closure,

navigating land swaps,

and watching demolition got

our children and families down?

Quite the opposite.

We have just completed one

of the biggest and most exciting

school fairs in the city.

Our fair is so important to

us – not only is it our main

fundraiser, bringing in funds

for the resources we need in

the coming months, but it puts

smiles on our children’s faces.

Our school fair involves

enormous commitment from

many – from the staff team

MEETING: A Redcliffs School pupil is welcomed by Minister of

Justice Andrew Little before the school’s presentation to the

Labour caucus.

leaders to the people who bake

cakes, donate goods and give

their time before, during and

after the fair.

It’s exciting to think that in

the coming year, we will be able

to use some of these fair funds

raised to enhance the playscapes

at our new school.

We’ve had a long road and it’s

hard to believe that our year 8

children were five when the June

earthquake sent us from our

school to our temporary location

in Sumner.

Our senior children shared

their Redcliffs School journey

in a presentation with Jacinda

Ardern and the Labour caucus

when they were invited to

visit Parliament recently.

Our children talked of their

experiences in the earthquake

and their home away from home

at Sumner and Van Asch.

They talked of determination,

love of their school and the

resilience and perseverance they

have learned watching the adults

in their lives work so hard to

return their school to Redcliffs.

These children represent the

eight years that have nearly

passed since the February

earthquake changed the

landscape for our school (both

figuratively and literally). They,

and our current year 7 pupils,

will not have the privilege of

attending our new school, but

they will forever be a part of it.

I’d like to extend an

enormous thank you to all in

our community who have so

relentlessly supported us. We’re

very much looking forward to

returning our school to Redcliffs

again at the beginning of 2020.

A CASHMERE retirement

village’s gardening club has

blossomed over the last five

The club was started five years

Their projects have included

trips to Trotts Garden in

the upkeep of a village beehive

and enjoyed across the whole

village.

Resident Trevor Houston

said he has made many friends

through the gardening club.

“The vegetable garden is

already providing produce and

we’ve enjoyed beginning the

new garden areas and planting

fruit trees. We all have a great

time,” Mr Houston said.

Bupa manager Rochelle

Moore said common interests

among the residents is

important for their health and

well-being.

people together, forming new

looking good.

KEEPING THE Edmonds

Factory Garden in prime

condition is a piece of cake

thanks to a team of dedicated

volunteers.

The garden, which appeared

on the Edmonds Cookery Book

cover, is cared for by the Friends

of the Edmonds Factory Garden.

The groups meets at the Ferry Rd

garden every Saturday to deadhead

roses, trim hedges, weed,

trim edges and tidy up.

They are some of many volunteers

who contribute their time

to communities across the city.

Their work was acknowledged on

International Volunteer Day on

Wednesday.

Friends secretary Jenny Hoskin

said the group’s over-arching goal

is to keep the gardens looking

good and make them an inviting

place to be.

“We feel very strongly that

these gardens are a special part

of Christchurch’s heritage and

I know a lot of visitors feel the

same way. Our aim is to promote

and maintain them as a community

asset.”

The volunteer group, which

includes Mrs Hoskin’s husband

John Hoskin, has planted roses,

lilies, bulbs and memorial camellias.

Members even used their own

money to install a sundial, drinking

foundation and seating, and

campaigned for funding to get

lighting, irrigation, CCTV cameras,

a rose garden, a bluebird

oval garden and three bridges.

Last year, 18 weddings were

held at the garden and the volunteers

spent about 1500 hours

preparing for them.

The garden also hosts live

expedite the work on Kyle Park

– and say I’m really sorry but we

need another month or year’s

consultation . . . I am certainly

not prepared to do that,” Cr

Buck said.

Board member Ross

McFarlane voted to investigate

other possible sites and

investigate possible cost

savings.

He said: “Essentially all we are

trying to do is to spend the best

amount of money to get the best

facility possible.”

“$5.8 million goes into the

ground [to remediate the Kyle

Park landfill].”

Mr McFarlane asked what

the best option was for the ratepayer,

and to take out the “rush”

in the process.

Marc Duff Mark Peters Garry Kilday

GREATER Hornby Residents’

Association chairman Marc

Duff said choosing Kyle Park

would help move the leisure

centre project forward.

“We are many years overdue

for this. We’ve been consulted

until we never want to hear

that word again,” Mr Duff

said.

“To hear that people want

to go out for more views absolutely

amazes me,” he said.

But Save Denton Park chairman

Mark Peters believed

more consultation was needed.

“To me it feels like it [the

process] has been rushed. It

feels like an agenda to get this

through before Christmas,” he

said.

“Take a breath through the

Christmas break, have the

council staff do more homework

for you,” Mr Peters said.

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairman Garry Kilday

slammed the decision, for

being put on a former landfill

site.

Mr Kilday said Templeton

residents have a strong interest

in the mega centre as it is

designed for the south west.

“I just found the whole thing

absolutely reprehensible. I

can’t understand why anyone

would condone opening that

dump,” he said.

Mr Kilday was also concerned

about the community

board supporting Templeton

residents’ fear of quarry dust,

while at also opening a former

landfill at Kyle Park.

He also believed the board

should have investigated an

option to build the mega

centre at Waterloo Business

Park.

“We [Templeton residents]

have a vested interest in this,

people kept on calling it the

Hornby leisure centre. Well it

isn’t, it’s the south-west leisure

centre,” Mr Kilday said.

BMX facility

to benefit

• By Anan Zaki

THE NEW leisure centre is set to

be built next to the Christchurch

BMX Club at Kyle Park.

Track manager Michael

Stronach says the new facility at

Kyle Park will be a boost for the

BMX Club.

The club recently upgraded their

track, which was designed with the

help of Olympic BMX rider Trent

Jones.

“It’s got potential to [benefit] for

sure. With a bit of car parking,

lighting and security it gives them

[city council] the incentive to tidy

up,” Mr Stronach said.

“It could be a good thing for

everyone,” he said.

Work on upgrading the track

started on November 30 and finished

last Tuesday. The cost of the

upgrade would have been $35,000

but it was paid for by businesses

across the city.

“The support from local businesses

has been amazing,” Mr

Stronach said.

The track’s upgrades were

designed and built by BMX rider

Jones, who is also a qualified digger

operator.

The track now has new straights

and jumps.

‘Knocked for six’ with pneumonia

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 found surfing,

gardening or tinkering in his

shed.

But Mr Sintes, who is deputy

chairman of the Coastal-

Burwood 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.

ON THE

MEND:

Coastal-

Burwood

Community

Board deputy

chairman

Tim Sintes

has been in

bed for five

weeks with a

severe case of

pneumonia.

“But I’d been wearing a mask

when I was doing the lawn . . .

they worked out it was a bacterial

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

the mend.

“I felt better and I thought,

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.

Shakes and shivers a battle for Sintes

•From page 10

“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

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

Although most people are

Six weeks ago, Mr Sintes

had an accident with a

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

Stolen rabbits make happy return

BUNNY BANDITS have returned

two pet rabbits to a pre-school

after outrage on social media.

The two bunny sisters, Ruby and

Rose, were stolen from BestStart

Hei Hei on November 30.

Two hutches, rabbit food and

a wooden baby fence were also

taken. It was the second burglary

in two nights at the pre-school.

During the first one, a Civil

Defence kit and two shade sails

were stolen.

The rabbits and a hutch were

returned on December 3 after

CCTV footage of the offenders

was published on Facebook and on

Stuff.

BestStart Hei Hei pre-school

manager Melitta Fielding narrowly

missed the burglars returning the

rabbits.

“A friend has a surveillance

camera and saw the car driving

down the road with a rabbit cage

on the back . . . by the time I got

there they had dumped them

down the side of the building and

the rabbits were in the hutch.”

She said the children loved

having them back.

“They were so excited when they

saw the cage.”

Miss Fielding believed media

coverage of the thefts may have

pressured the thieves to return the

rabbits.

Nothing else stolen in the HAPPY DAYS: Cameron Denson, 2, Jaxon Bain, 3, teacher Abbie Young, Elliot Jolly, 4, Alexander Bromell, 2, and Lachan Preddy,

burglaries has been returned. 4, welcome back their rabbits Rose and Ruby at the BestStart Hei Hei pre-school.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Tireless triplets still an online sensation

• By Sophie Cornish

THE THREE bouncing babies

who won hearts in a viral online

video have now grown into

tireless toddlers.

The triplets, Macy, Sadie

and Toby O’Leary will be

17-months-old on Monday

and their mother Sarah says

they are adjusting to life as a big

family.

They are fraternal and

were born less than a minute

apart.

Not long after their birth,

a video of the red-headed

trio taken by Hazel&Cass

photographer Cassandra English

went viral online.

It has reached more than nine

million views.

Now, Mrs O’Leary says the

triplets have all gained their

individual personalities and

quirks.

“They are three very different

toddlers.”

Toby now has beach

blonde hair, growing out of his

ginger locks, unlike his two

sisters.

“He is very boisterous and

loud. He’s more advanced than

the other two in that he can

walk. Now he can run around,

he wants to play with the big

boys. He’s definitely his father’s

son,” said Mrs O’Leary.

“Sadie is always wanting to

dress up and wear goofy things

on her head, she doesn’t mind

putting on a show in front of

everybody. But out of all three,

she is the more clingy one, that

needs the most attention. She’s

the little one, but if she wants

something, she will fight you for

it.”

“And Macy is the sweet,

patient one. She will wait

patiently for things and is

cuddly, quiet and enjoys playing

by herself.”

Along with the triplets, Sarah

and her husband Fionn are kept

busy with two other boys, Olly,

6, and Archy, who is almost

three-years-old.

The Hoon Hay family

often get stopped in public by

people asking questions about

the large family, or just to admire

then.

“I get a lot of comments from

people saying about how busy I

must be. A lot of older ladies are

amazed by the girls with their

bright red hair and blue eyes.

Even older men stop me to tell

me stories about their family

trees or a friend of a friend who

had triplets.”

Canty school athletics champs

return to city at Nga Puna Wai

SPORTS

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.”

THE NEWLY opened athletic

facilities at Nga Puna Wai Sports

Hub in Halswell hosted the

Canterbury primary schools

athletics championships on

Wednesday.

The event brought together

more than 1700 children from

180 primary schools across

Canterbury and the West Coast.

It is the first time since the

earthquakes

that the

championships

have been held in

Christchurch.

For the past

eight years,

Julyan

students

competing in

the championships have had

to travel to Ashburton because

there has been no suitable

facility in the city.

But the opening in October

of the new world-class athletics

track at Nga Puna Wai has

changed that.

City council recreation and

sports service manager David

Bailey is delighted the city

is again in a position to host

athletics events like the primary

schools championships.

“It’s great to see the years of

hard work and planning that

has gone into creating Nga

Puna Wai paying off and to see

the smiles on these young kids’

faces,” Mr Bailey said.

Sport Canterbury chief

executive Julyan Falloon is

also pleased the school athletic

championships are finally back

in the city.

“Today we’re seeing an entire

generation of children who’ve

never run on anything other

than a grass track. It’s fantastic

to see them competing on a

world-class facility on their

home turf,’’ Mr Falloon said.

Nga Puna Wai is being

developed by a collaborative

partnership, which includes the

city council, Sport Canterbury,

Athletics Canterbury,

Canterbury Rugby League,

Canterbury Hockey, and Tennis

Canterbury, and is opening in

stages.

The nine-lane athletics track

and two water-based synthetic

hockey pitches have opened and

the two sand-based rugby league

fields and 12 outdoor acrylic

tennis courts are due to open in

April.

There will also be two multiuse

community playing fields, a

shared sports hub building with

administration facilities, public

toilets, changing facilities, a

children’s play zone, an athletics

control building, and covered

seating for athletics, hockey and

rugby league.

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 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.”

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking t operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

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 bigger 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.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

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
