Councillors

clash over

dangerous

intersection

upgrades

CITY COUNCILLORS are in a

battle over which intersection on

Harewood Rd needs to be upgraded

first.

The clash took place when the

Harewood Rd Corridor Study was

presented to the city council on

Thursday.

Councillors Aaron

Keown and Mike

Davidson sparred

over the report’s

contents. Cr Keown

said the paper

was not credible

as it downplayed

the danger of the

Harewood, Breens

and Gardiners Rds intersection.

Aaron

Keown

“I have a lot of problems with the

report, because I feel this report

has been put together to get a

particular outcome for a particular

intersection.”

Cr Keown has been battling to get

lights installed at the intersection

since the issue saw him re-elected to

the city council in 2016.

He says there are several

discrepancies within the findings in

terms of crashes at the Harewood,

Gardiners and Breens Rds

junction that made it seem like

the intersection did not need an

upgrade. •Turn to page 8

from the editor’s desk

I CAN sympathise with Tim Sintes, who

has been struck down with pneumonia

(pages 13 and 15).

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.

Speaking at the symbolic

anniversary of Armistice Day last

month to commemorate 100 years

of peace since the ending of World

War 1 was a special moment.

It’s important that every year we

acknowledge those who made the

ultimate sacrifice to give us the

freedom and choices we enjoy

today. The lessons learnt from that

awful war, called the Great War

because it was inconceivable that

another war would ever be waged

on that scale, are as relevant today

as they were then.

I enjoyed meeting the teams

at Pegasus Health and Rural

Canterbury PHO with National’s

Associate Health Spokesperson

Shane Reti recently. We heard

about some great initiatives to

support rural health and Pegasus

Health in Christchurch briefed us

on their work supporting general

practices and community-based

health providers. It’s important

this work on the frontier of mentalhealth

delivery in our communities

is supported by all parties.

We know that Kiwi families

should be at the centre of our

legislation if we’re to deliver policies

that help people get ahead. Rising

living costs have long-reaching

effects on families being able to

plan for their futures. We want

families to feel safe and financially

secure, and have access to good

health and education services.

We’re asking families to participate

in a survey about how we can

support you. Go to https://www.

national.org.nz/families to take part.

I’ll be out and about over the

Christmas break as my family and I

have decided to enjoy a staycation,

appreciating the beaches and

walks on our doorstep. Whether

you stay at home or go away,

from my family to yours I wish you

a wonderful holiday season and

a New Year of good health and

wellbeing.

Church opposing same-sex

marriage sets up in Papanui

• By Matt Slaughter

A NEW church for people who

split from the Christchurch

Anglican Diocese after its

decision to allow same-sex

marriage has held its first service

in Papanui.

The newly re-branded All

Saints Church met at the Palmer

Funeral Chapel on

Harewood Rd.

The service was

led by former St

Stephen’s Anglican

Church vicar Jay

Behan, who was a

Andy

Carley

guest preacher.

He said the

service was

attended by almost

50 people and was “a good,

positive get-together.”

Rev Behan stepped down from

St Stephen’s in May, saying he

was saddened by the synod’s

decision to embrace same-sex

marriage, as his congregation

had not “been able to come

to an arrangement where, in

good conscience, we can move

forward together.”

Former St Paul’s Anglican

Church vicar Andy Carley gave

his last service at the church last

Sunday and will now step in as

the leader of All Saints Church.

The St Paul’s congregation

voted in May to stay with the

Christchurch Anglican Diocese,

in spite of its new stance on

same-sex marriage, with 70

per cent voting in favour of the

status quo.

The decision to allow same-sex

marriages was criticised by Rev

Carley, who previously called

the move “a step in the wrong

direction.”

Armed with a new logo and

name, All Saints is calling its

church “a new expression of

Church

Funeral

Chapel.

Anglicanism.”

Rev Carley refused to

talk about the new church.

Said Christchurch

Anglican Diocesan manager

Edwin Boyce: “We recognise

their desire to begin a new

ministry and we wish them

well.”

Mia ready to make her

mark on politics

• By Ashleigh Monk

ARMED WITH a love for

science, technology and politics,

16-year-old Mia Wright is ready

to make her mark.

The St Margaret’s College

student has been selected to

represent National list MP Nicky

Wagner as a youth MP in the

Youth Parliament next year.

Mia said she has always been

interested in politics and she

followed last year’s election

closely.

“With social media and the

internet in particular, youth

are a lot more aware of the

going-ons around them, and I

think it’s really important that

we have a voice in our future,”

she said.

“The plan in the next couple

of weeks is for me to reach out

to a couple of youth groups

and get their point of view on

what they want to see happen in

Government.”

Mia has a passion for science

and technology.

“I’m in love with technology

and coding and science. I’ve

done a lot of robotics in the past,

and over the last six months my

Davidson v Livingstone

• By Julia Evans

MIKE DAVIDSON has capped

off his year of sport with a

win against his city council

counterpart.

The Papanui Ward city councillor

went head-to-head with Burwood

Ward’s Glenn Livingstone

in the Car Park Cannon Ball

challenge. The pair competed in

the councillor category, racing up

eight floors of a car park building.

Cr Davidson won comfortably

2-0. “I won’t go into the detail of

how easy it was to beat him, but

thank him for also supporting the

cause,” he said.

It was a “fantastic event” for

riders and spectators, he said.

“But, more importantly, the

reason for the event was about

raising money and awareness for

men’s health.”

Cr Davidson will be competing

again next year and challenged all

councillors to do the same.

“Personally this caps off a

significant year for me on the

sporting scene, having completed

the Coast to Coast, Sea to Sky

Duathalon, Le Race, Grape Ride,

Christchurch Marathon, Fight for

Christchurch and Car Park Cannon

Ball,” he said.

Cr Davidson recently got in the

boxing ring with Crusaders

assistant coach Brad Mooar to

raise money for Cure Kids. He

also dropped about 20kg when

he was training for the Coast to

Coast in February.

chairwoman Ali Jones open the time capsule are Molly Vaile

Time capsule to spend 100

more years underground

THE CONTENTS of a 1920s

time capsule recently opened

in St Albans are set to be

reburied.

The capsule was opened in

September after being hidden

for nearly 100 years. It was buried

in 1920 when the St Albans

Public Library was constructed

and was only discovered in 2011

when the building was demolished.

Copies of The Lyttelton Times

and The Press from the 1920s

were among the artefacts found

in the capsule, along with a

letter.

However, at Friday’s meeting,

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board decided to rebury the

capsule alongside a new one.

It will be buried in 2020 with

the completion of the new St Albans

Community Centre and is

set to be reopened on the 100th

anniversary of the community

centre in 2120.

City council staff will incorporate

the two capsules into the

centre’s foundation design.

Community groups will be

invited to make a contribution

to the contents at the St Albans

Park reopening event.

But city councillors Mike

Davidson and Pauline Cotter said

the report actually highlights

a more dangerous intersection

along the corridor – Greers and

Harewood Rds.

Said Cr Davidson “You can

read through reports and try and

pick out little bits that you have

issues with, but

when you read

the report in its

entirety, it’s very

clear that actually

the intersection

that is creating the

most risk down

Mike

Davidson

there is the Greers

Rd/Harewood Rd

intersection.”

The city council needed to be

“careful” about moving capital

forward to pay for upgrades at the

Breens, Gardiners and Harewood

Rds intersection, Cr Davidson

said.

He said that intersection would

likely not get a New Zealand

Transport Agency subsidy.

“We need to look at what

actually needs to be done first.

We need to be mindful where the

risk is down that corridor.”

However, Cr Keown said you

cannot compare the two as

the Greers and Harewood Rds

intersection already has traffic

lights. “The problems are not

because it has traffic lights, it’s

a number of other reasons. This

is about getting people

across that intersection.”

Mayor Lianne Dalziel

said it is important to

look at the entire corridor

as Harewood Rd has

changed.

“It is no longer the

major thoroughfare that

it used to be. As a result,

the four lanes encourage

people to speed because there

isn’t a lot of traffic to slow it down

River plan creates ‘vibrant future’

Avebury

Tanya

Didham

writes

about how the Otakaro

Avon River Corridor

draft regeneration plan

will have an impact on

Richmond

AVEBURY House has

experienced several

transformations since its

origins in the 1850s. It was

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

BEAUTIFUL: Avebury House has had its fair share of

changes since it opened in the 1850s.

big impact on us and our

communities. The waiting-toknow

is almost over.

Regenerate Christchurch

has released its draft plan and

it feels like it has 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 about

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 and native planting start

to fill the gaps and cracks that

still remind us of what’s gone,

while bringing back a little of

what was lost long before. And

we also see projects that bring

people and activities back to

our community.

Let Regenerate Christchurch

know (before the consultation

closes on December 19) that

you like where it is going

with this, because here in

Richmond, we’re ready for a

green and vibrant future.

As a person who sets high (at times

ridiculously high) standards, it’s often a

relief to get to the end of the year – and this

year especially. Along with everyone else,

whether working at a breakneck pace or

to a simpler rhythm, I find it a good time to

reflect on the events of the previous twelve

months. The businessperson in me looks to

analyse and assess. To attempt to repeat the

successes and minimize the falls in the year

that’s been and, of course, there have

been both.

Achieving the highest performing office

internationally for the Harcourts brand has

been the biggest accolade. It’s seen the

Papanui office placed as the number-one office

out of over 900 in 10 countries. Undoubtedly

a proud moment, but there have also been

the usual conflicts that come with running

a successful business whilst managing the

various agendas of over 120 people across

five offices.

It’s also been a year where law changes

assistance to ensure the highest levels of

professional care are maintained in these

very new areas.

Personally, the mother in me is adjusting to

the new dimension of having two sons mostly

living away from home and another Christmas

(the seventh) without our eldest son Harry, who

will be working in the Japanese Alps. Like every

parent, these moments make me thoughtful

and nostalgic, and probably contribute to the

rationale for always having an open house on

Christmas Day. We’re a ‘more the merrier’ kind

of family and our day is complete with our own

quirky traditions and enough food and drink to

feed a small army.

So, it’s been a great year, a changing market

and a changing environment. Adjusting to new

price points in different demographics whilst

instigating additional support services for the

company. The appointment of a full-time social

media designer has opened-up a whole new

methodology for connecting with potential

clients and purchasers, and the year ahead sees

us adding to this part of the business. Giving back

has also been a constant theme, and children

and the vulnerable are the first on our list. So,

what will 2019 look like? Like other years, it will

probably have its share of challenge and cheer.

I’m hoping it means lots of good madness, a

caring community, lots of opportunity and more

time with the people I love.

Happy Christmas!

‘Knocked for six’ with pneumonia

Fire rages, homes at risk

Pneumonia can strike at

any time. Well-known

local body politician Tim

Sintes is recovering from

the potentially deadly

infection. 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

Fire rages, homes at risk

•From page 13

“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

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

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.

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.

FUTURE BLACK

CAPS: The Breens

Intermediate first XI

have proved they

are one of the best

intermediate teams

in the country after

finishing third at the

National Primary

School Cup.

Breens among NZ’s top

intermediate cricket sides

THE BREENS Intermediate first

XI cricket team finished third

at the National Primary School

Cup in Lincoln.

The team put together three

gutsy performances in what

coach Jono Collins said were

“appalling conditions” to finish

in the top three against six of the

best intermediate-aged teams in

New Zealand.

Collins said the result was

even more impressive given the

other schools in the tournament

were either private or had much

bigger rolls.

Although Breens only won

one out of their five games and

one match was abandoned,

they were able to grab third in

Key

• Ryman village

• Proposed village

the knockout-style tournament

because their net run-rate was

higher than the three teams

below them.

Collins said the result was by

far the best Breens have achieved

at a national level.

“We haven’t even come

remotely close to a result like

this before. It was an amazing

achievement for a school like

ours.”

The highlight of the

tournament came when

Breens defeated Raroa Normal

Intermediate, of Wellington, by

six wickets in their first game.

The team were anchored by

a quick-fire 52 from opening

batsman Connor Stewart.

Breens’ were also aided by

Collins said “everyone did

their part with the ball.”

Neville Peck watched his

play in the tournament and

said the way he and his

teammates performed was “quite

outstanding.”

Breens continued their good

form by winning another

WINNERS: The Burnside High

School girls volleyball team

celebrate after winning the

BURNSIDE HIGH School have

brought a title home from the

South Island junior volleyball

champs at Dunedin’s Edgar

Centre.

Burnside’s girls A team won

the year 9-10 division one title,

finishing ahead of 16 teams from

across the South Island.

Coach Sam Ryburn said they

only lost one game in pool play to

city rivals St Margaret’s College.

Ryburn said although it had

been a “pretty tight competition,”

the team eventually made up for

the loss, defeating St Margaret’s

two games to one in the final.

“We have a pretty well-rounded

team of players and really played

well as a team.”

The win capped off a successful

tournament for Christchurch

school girls, with St Margaret’s

finishing second and St Andrew’s

A taking third.

Riccarton High School’s

boys team also won their

competition, finishing above 20

other teams.

Christchurch players also

cleaned up the tournament’s

individual awards, earning eight

of the 12 slots in the girls alltournament

team and six spots in

the boys all-tournament team.

The most valuable players in

the girls and boys competitions

were Burnside’s Taylah Holdem

and Riccarton’s Joe Baxter.

Ryburn said the strong

performance from Canterbury

schools was “really positive” and

could create “definite pathways”

for young volleyballers to gain

athletic scholarships overseas in

the future.

Both Burnside and Riccarton

hope to continue their good

Pump track

likely for

next year

A NEW pump track for Shirley

could be installed by mid-way

through next year.

At a meeting on Friday, the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board said it was working with

the council’s parks team to

discuss options to get the project

over the line by the end of the

current financial year.

It was previously said that a

decision on funding would not be

made before the start of the council’s

2021-2031 Long Term Plan.

Papanui Ward board member

Emma Norrish said they were

also seeking support from

community groups, given the

benefits the park would have for

Shirley residents.

“With nothing planned in the

next 10 years, it is the perfect opportunity

to make it an appealing,

usable community space.”

By way of a petition, primary

school pupils in Shirley asked

the city council to install a pump

track at the Shirley Community

Reserve where they could ride

their skateboards, scooters and

bikes.

The petition was started by

pupil Shannon Smith and was

presented to the Papanui-Innes

Community Board in August.

Reunion for freezing workers

FORMER EMPLOYEES of the

Canterbury Freezing Works,

which opened on Belfast Rd in

the late 1800s and shut down in

2008, have reunited to celebrate

the 10th anniversary of its

closure.

Around 200 ex-staff members

met at The Bower hotel on November

17 to exchange stories of

their time at the freezing works

and reconnect with old friends.

Those who attended ranged

in age, with some guests having

started at the freezing works in

the early 1950s.

Loyal employee Hooch Fonotia

(real name John) who organised

the event, was a workhorse at the

freezing works for 45 years, starting

at the age of 18 and finishing

the day the plant closed its doors

for the last time.

Mr Fonotia said his time at the

plant had played a huge part in

shaping who he is today and said

the reunion brought back many

fond memories.

“The job always meant more to

me than money.”

“I made a hell of a lot of

friends.”

Mr Fonotia said: “It was a really

good feeling to see all sorts of

people, as many had gone their

separate ways and not seen each

other since the closure.”

Guests celebrated with a slice

of cake and were surprised by an

appearance and speech by secretary

of the New Zealand Meat

Workers Union’s Canterbury

branch Bill Watt.

Mr Watt said the get-together

was a great way to celebrate the

history and people associated

with a workplace that shaped

Canterbury’s economic and social

landscape for over 100 years.

“It was a really good function.”

Mr Watt said the event could

have potentially been “the last

hurrah” for some of freezing

works longest-serving employees,

making the event even more

special.

“There were some there that

may not to be able to do it again.”

Mr Watt said, in its day, the

Canterbury Freezing Works was

one of the biggest producers and

exporters of lamb products in

New Zealand.

Its closure in 2008 led to the

loss of 250 jobs.

Stolen rabbits make happy return

NOR’WEST NEWS

Fire rages, homes at risk

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

burglaries has been returned.

HAPPY DAYS: Cameron Denson, 2, Jaxon Bain, 3, teacher Abbie Young, Elliot Jolly, 4, Alexander Bromell, 2, and Lachan Preddy,

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

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.”

Competition – ba s player, Tom

Fastier, co lapsed an died the

day before the competition

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

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 little

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 business

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

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 will

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

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
