JACK Harris-Clarke’s family

has been saving money all year

to buy him a BMX bike.

It has been a tough ask for

the Hornby family.

But now their dream has

come true, thanks to the

Mazda Foundation, which has

stepped in with a $2500 grant.

THRILLED: Dean Harris-Clarke (left), Jack Harris-Clarke and mother Kate Harris-Clarke with the new BMX gear.

Funding gets Jack on BMX track

The 10-year-old from

Hornby is autistic with limited

speech and has sensory issues,

which makes him only like

fatty food.

To combat his weight,

mother Kate Harris-Clarke has

tried to get him into various

sports, without much success.

But Jack finally found a sport

to play last year, when he went

riding at the Kyle Park BMX

track in Hornby with his nineyear-old

brother Dean.

But proper equipment was

expensive.

After trying various

organisations, the family

received good news last month

when they were granted the

money.

“It was incredible, I stood

there and bawled my eyes out,”

Mrs Harris-Clarke said.

Until last month, Jack rode a

cheap bike.

But with the grant from the

Mazda Foundation, the family

has enough savings (originally

intended for Jack) to buy new

equipment for his younger

brother too.

decision

round of

applause

• By Anan Zaki

APPLAUSE ERUPTED in the city

council chambers on Thursday as

Kyle Park was approved as the new

site for the planned Hornby mega

centre.

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association chairman Marc Duff

welcomed the decision.

“We can start going forward now

and get the facility

built for the benefit

of everyone,” he said.

Supporters of

the Hornby mega

centre, which will

include a library,

recreation area, pool

and customer service

facility, were present Marc Duff

at the meeting. They

were hoping to see an end to the

long-running saga.

“It feels like you can smell the

facility coming. I think it’s an

opportunity for the youth of

Hornby to have a facility that

generations before them didn’t

have,” Mr Duff said.

Save Denton Park chairman

Mark Peters said he can now “see

the light at the end of the tunnel.”

OUR FEATURE on Hampshire St (pages 4,

5 and 6) brings back some memories.

I could tell you a few stories but in a

family newspaper like Southern View, I

probably wouldn’t get away with it.

Needless to say, back in the day they were great times in the

east . . . probably still are, it’s just another generation having

them.

A lot of my mates were from Hampshire St and its surrounding

streets, and our social lives radiated through Aranui and across

the eastern suburbs – usually from Waimairi Beach to South

Brighton. Basically anywhere there was a good party.

All you had to do was cruise the streets and you’d find a party

happening somewhere. And they were pretty damn good. Unless

the Hampshires arrived . . .

Potential drainage trial concern

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A POTENTIAL flood

prevention measure may

not be a silver bullet for

solving drainage issues at the

Southshore estuary.

THe city council will trial a

groyne in Sumner to prevent

problems there. If that works

it will then

be trialled in

Ebbtide St,

Southshore.

But doubt

has been

cast over

whether the

trial to place

David East

a temporary

groyne at

the drain in

Burgess St, Sumner, will work at

the estuary.

Coastal Ward city councillor

David East, said the Sumner

waves and the estuary at

Southshore are “totally different

conditions.”

“In the meantime, we have

just got to carry on with a bit

of experimentation with some

options and get the problem

sorted once and for all,” he said.

It comes after the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

raised concern over inefficient

stormwater drains in Southshore

filling up when it rains heavily

and the water being unable to

flow out to the estuary.

Board deputy chairman Tim

Sintes said he also has doubts the

trial will work at Ebbtide St, but

leaving it as it is was “not an option.”

City council land drainage

manager Keith Davison said

while staff are looking at the

trial on Burgess St, there are no

firm plans at this stage.

THe temporary groyne would

aim to artificially lower sand

levels on one side which, if

placed next to an outlet, may

help clear it.

But a city council report said

there would need to be natural

tidal waves to move the sand

laterally.

It said while natural tidal

effects are expected at Sumner,

there is no certainty it will work

at drain outlets in the estuary

such as Ebbtide St.

THe board recently inquired

with city council staff about the

status of Ebbtide St drain after

concerns it was not working

properly when it rained.

Mr Davison said during a

heavy rain event when the tide is

UNCERTAINTY:

A potential

flood prevention

measure may

not be able to fix

flooding issues

of drains within

the Southshore

estuary. ​

high, the drain will be below

the tide level which means

it occasionally has to send a

temporary pump out.

He said when there is a

rainstorm the city council will

ensure the drain is clear of sand

and isn’t blocked.

“At this stage we will continue

this method and monitor the

effectiveness of it,” he said.

Placing a temporary groyne

at Ebbtide St will be dependent

on how successful the trial is

at Sumner and if the estuary

conditions are suitable, Mr

Davison said.

Hampshire St: Transformed into

Hampshire St in Aranui

has had a reputation

over the years as a

place you dare to tread.

But it is undergoing a

transformation. Julia

Evans reports

IN THE PAST it has been

labelled the most feared street in

the city.

Sirens, stabbings, sexual assaults,

fires, shootings, gangs,

murders, high unemployment

rates and low incomes have been

synonymous with Hampshire St

for the better part of its history.

A stark contrast to its namesake,

the area of Hampshire in

the United Kingdom, which has a

Christchurch city and Avon River

of its own.

Hampshire calls forth images

of a rolling English countryside

rather than the street police in

the 1990s would often refer to as

“The Reservation.”

Erina Staples has lived on and

around Hampshire St for 27 years

and said the area used to be

“really rough.”

She said there were fights often

between the Mongrel Mob and

Black Power gangs when the pub,

BANABA BANABA has lived

on Hampshire St for at least 20

years.

It could be 30.

“I’ve forgotten, I’ve had other

things on my mind.”

He’s spent the last eight years

in his modern brick unit after

moving from down the other

end of the street.

Mr Banaba had to move

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake destroyed the

second storey of his home.

“You couldn’t use the

bathroom or go upstairs. I

like it here better anyway,” he

said.

“There aren’t as many people

doing wheelspins outside the

house here, its quieter.”

Originally from the Cook

Islands, Mr Banaba moved to

Auckland and lived in Porirua

with his brother.

He then moved down to

“It was terrible when the pub

was open . . . there were fights

outside and the kids would hang

outside and see it all,” she said.

lived on Hampshire St, but he wouldn’t live anywhere else.

In the 70s, there was the Flagon

Wagon gang, and later the fully

Banaba said.

Now he mows the front lawns

of most of his neighbours and

said the area has a strong sense

to rule the roost in the eastern

suburbs from their base in the

streets around Hampshire St.

But they weren’t always the

victor.

In the 1970s, surfers from the

of community.

“I like helping,” Mr Banaba

said.

He also liked playing darts

at the Eastern Eagles Rugby

League Club clubrooms.

“I stopped playing when I

reached the top. I said: ‘I’ve had

enough now’.”

Mr Banaba said Wainoni

Park was a great spot on

Hampshire St.

“When my grandkids

come over, I say go over to

the park and play. I can walk

over with them and watch,” he

said.

However, Mr Banaba said he

knew there were gangs in the

area, but they mostly kept to

themselves.

“Black Power and the

Mongrel Mob, they don’t cause

any problems,” he said.

“It’s not as bad as people

think. People tell me it’s bad

but it’s not.”

a real sense of community

“One of the young surfie guys

got beaten up by the Flagon

Wagon so we decided to go

around there. We rang the police

first and told them we were going

there to sort them out,” long-time

surfer Keiry Bennett recalled this

week.

The Flagon Wagon gang

members were swinging chains

as the surfies approached. A few

moments later it was all on.

“We grabbed their chains,

jumped up and down on the car

roofs . . . and when we were done

the police were waiting around

the corner to sort them out,” he

said.

“They didn’t beat up surfers

after that, that’s for sure.”

The Hampshires emerged

in the 1980s from the Flagon

Wagon, and then faded away.

They were a feared gang in the

east, who would turn up to halls

having 21sts and other parties

and cause and get involved in

carnage.

As the years rolled on the

Ruthless Boot Boys, an odd fit

in an ever-growing Maori and

Polynesian population in

Aranui, and the Mongrel Mob

and Black Power would take up

residence.

Hampshire St was given the

status as unofficial worst street

in the city – TV3’s Campbell Live

used the term when discussing

the merger of Aranui schools.

But the street’s notoriety went

to a national and international

level in September 2009 when the

bodies of Tisha Lowry, 28, and

Rebecca Chamberlain, 33, were

found under the floorboards of

one of the units on the corner of

Hampshire St and Wainoni Rd.

It became known as The House

of Horrors.

Mrs Chamberlain’s husband,

Jason Somerville, was jailed for

their murders. He had killed Ms

Lowry, who was his neighbour,

in September 2008.

A year later he killed his wife.

The House Of Horrors

would later be burnt down –

culprits still unknown. The

property was bought by the city

council and turned into a small

park Ripene Ma Reserve – White

Ribbon Reserve, which honours

those who lost their lives to

violence.

But for all of this Ms Staples

feels “pretty lucky” to live in

Hampshire St.

She has lived in the new state

house for the last two years, but

raised her children in various

spots along the street.

Her oldest is now 27,

her youngest daughter is a

16-year-old student at Haeata

Community Campus, her

mother lives just around the

corner.

DARK PAST: The House

of Horrors where it

was discovered Jason

Somerville had buried

the bodies of his wife

and neighbour in

2008 and 2009 was

destroyed by fire.

Ms Staples said a lot of that had

to do with the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, which provided an

opportunity for Hampshire St to

regenerate.

“There’s a lot of community

and it’s good having the police

around. They come in and say

hello, make sure all the kids and

teenagers respect them. You don’t

see that in every street.”

“I actually feel a lot safer here

than I would in town. Everyone’s

got your back here, everyone

makes sure you’re safe,” she said.

New library, park upgrade and leadership

•From page 5

WHILE HAMPSHIRE St has

had a chequered past – it’s

future is full of rejuvenation and

community spirit.

Recent years have seen the

opening of a new library, upgrades

at Wainoni Park and the

rise of Aranui Community Trust

the tool shed, a walking group,

community

lunches,

amongst a

range of other

services.

Rob

Davidson,

who is the

Mayor Lianne

Dalziel, has been chairman of

ACTIS for 18 years.

“I went to the recent Affirm

celebration and I sat there with

Sandy Kaa, our kaumatua and

looked around at all the positive

changes. I actually became quite

emotional,” he said.

“The people were just so engaged.”

Mr Davidson said the area had

managed to achieve so much in a

short period of time.

“There’s the new $6.5 million

community hall . . .the new

library and we’ve shifted the playground

from behind the shops,

there’s been community plantings

days, it’s really opened up now so

houses overlook it and it’s much

safer,” Mr Davidson said.

Hampshire St’s high deprivation

index and low income rates

meant ACTIS’s role in the community

was on-going.

“You have to continue your

support. You can’t go in and then

leave again . . . it’s the sort of

thing we’ve got to carry on.”

The community spirit would

see the area flourish in the future,

Mr Davidson said.

campaign by the Aranui

When I was younger

there was an old half

about it, now there’s a

flash basketball court

and a path. It’s a lot

more vibrant,” he said.

Fasi said the look of the

area was changing, which was

helping outward perception.

“There’s always been gang activity

and things. But at the same

time there’s a lot of kids having

a lot of fun. Biking up and down

the street, going to the shops and

Mini national park trust gets award

A CONSERVATION trust which

created a mini national park

on Banks Peninsula has been

recognised at the annual civic

awards.

The Maurice White Native

Forest Trust received an

award at a private ceremony

on Wednesday for services to

conservation.

Twelve recipients were

presented with the city council

awards by Mayor Lianne Dalziel.

Maurice White, who is 94, set

up a fund in 1977 to purchase

land on Banks Peninsula and, in

1987, the first 109ha section was

bought for an ecological project

named Hinewai Reserve.

Following several other

additions, the reserve now

occupies 1250ha near Akaroa

and is highly-valued for its

indigenous flora and fauna,

including geckos, skinks, native

eels and fish.

For more than 30 years,

the trust has worked to

conserve and restore native

bush that the public can access

through an extensive 32km

network of walking tracks,

including a section that makes

up part of the Banks Peninsula

walk.

Well-known botanist Hugh

Wilson, 73, who is a member

of the trust and manages the

reserve, said even though it

is privately-owned it is freely

open to the public and attracts

between 6000-8000 visitors a

year.

That includes about 2500

people walking the Banks

Peninsula track.

“The award is a lovely

recognition of Maurice. I’m very

proud of what we have achieved,

although nature has done most

of it, we’ve just been helping on

the side,” he said.

Mr Wilson wants to see the

reserve grow further in the

future so it extends down to the

sea.

The other civic award

winners were Pauline Mohi for

services to public health,

Robert (Bob) Shearing for

community service, Pat

community service to the

Mt Pleasant last year.

A 31-year-old man was jailed

for three years in relation to them

and other offences.

Ms Preston said additional

cameras would also be needed

with Sumner Rd due to

reopen next year, which

is expected to cost an additional

$20,000.

“When we started

going down this track

it was nearly two years

ago and at that point, we

didn’t know if the road

was going to reopen.”

Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board member and city councillor

Sara Templeton supported the

installation of security cameras.

“I know that this is a real issue

in the area with a range of burglaries

and incidents with cars,

trailers and boats.”

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham said the cameras

would only be part of the solution.

“From my perspective, the

cameras must be complemented

by a sufficient level of monitoring

from a credible organisation, that

is the New Zealand Police.”

Pressure on to save water

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

THE CITY council is taking

a myth-busting approach

to remind residents about

the need to save water this

summer.

It has put out a series of

fact-based articles via its

website and Facebook page in

an effort to correct common

misunderstandings about

water use in Christchurch.

Water supply programme

manager Helen Beaumont says

it’s important people get the

facts so they understand the

importance of saving water

this summer.

“We’ve had a lot people

effectively calling us out for

asking them to save water

when water bottling plants

are taking it out of the ground

every day. But there are two

problems with that. Firstly,

the city council doesn’t

decide who can or can’t take

groundwater, Environment

Canterbury does, while taking

environmental factors into

account. And secondly, the

water taken by water bottling

plants doesn’t actually affect

our public water supply –

they’re separate issues.”

Ms Beaumont says another

common misunderstanding is

around the need to conserve

water this summer.

“It’s not that we’re running

out of water. The problem is

we need to take some water

wells out of service so we

can upgrade them and stop

chlorinating as fast as possible.

If we keep using too much

PRECIOUS: Limit the

time you operate your

garden hose.

water, we have to use more

wells to cope, and then we

can’t work on them. It’s really

that simple,” she says.

A wet start to summer in

Christchurch has seen the city

council’s online water dial

spend a number of consecutive

days in the

“green zone”,

which is

where the

city council

wants to see

it stay as the

city moves

into the

warmest part

of the year.

Helen

Beaumont

Ms Beaumont says the rain

means people generally don’t

feel the need to turn on their

garden sprinklers or irrigators,

which are

the biggest household water

users.

“Running a garden sprinkler

or irrigator for an hour can

use up to 1500 litres – or 150

buckets – of water. That’s

a huge amount when you

consider we’re targeting an

average daily use of 212 litres

per person this summer. We’re

asking people to use hand-held

hoses to water – during early

morning or late evening –

because you can direct exactly

where the water goes and

avoid wasting it.”

•More water saving tips

are available on the city

council’s website at ccc.

PEDAL POWER: Jack Harris-Clarke

(left), rides with brother Dean.

Jack’s on track

•From page 1

Jack’s interest in BMX has stuck with

him all year.

“We took him along [to Kyle Park]

last year with his younger brother Dean.

He would just ride and ride and ride,”

Mrs Harris-Clarke said.

“Jack would just continue riding, he

was sweating and really enjoying it.”

It was “thrilling” to see Jack do what

other children were doing, she said.

“For him to show an interest in

something like BMX not only ticks

the box with improving his fitness and

dropping a few kilos, but also because

he socially and behaviourally is part of a

group,” Mrs Harris-Clarke said.

She said Jack always rides under the

watchful eyes of his brother Dean, who

looks out for him on the track.

Dean is happy to see his older brother

with the new BMX bike and getting

active.

“It feels great because we finally have

a sport for Jack. It’s always been about

me so far,” he said.

Bright mural brought to

life at Beckenham School

A COLOURFUL mural has been

brought to life beside the river at

Beckenham School.

Well-known artist Ira Mitchell-

Kirk has helped pupils to paint a

13m x2m mural on the school’s

toilet block.

The artwork was unveiled on

Thursday and features native

birds and a wild landscape.

Twenty-five year 7 and 8 pupils

helped paint the mural.

The project is part of the

school’s weekly passion days it

holds to allow pupils to work on

subjects they are passionate about

– from art to mountain biking

and baking.

Teacher Nicky Dunlop, who is

in charge of the art projects for

the school’s passion days, helped

co-ordinate the painting of the

mural.

The city council donated a

grant of $250, which helped cover

the cost of the paint.

Mitchell-Kirk donated 40 hours

to help complete the project and

taught the pupils about time

management, budgeting and

planning out the mural.

She said the mural has received

positive attention from the public.

Trust provides more than

100 kids with Christmas gifts

MORE THAN 100 children

will have Christmas gifts under

the tree this year thanks to

people who donated toys to the

Birthright Canterbury Trust.

Parents were able to select

gifts for their children at the

Phillipstown Community

Hub during Christmas Toy

Day, which was supported by

Professionals Christchurch real

Trust manager Rhodora

Sagles said the Professionals

team volunteered to help get the

toys needed to make the day a

success.

“These gifts make a huge

difference for Birthright

families,” she said.

Professionals Christchurch

managing director Colin Lock

said the company hoped it had

contributed to a great Christmas

for children involved with the

trust.

In addition to offering parents

the opportunity to select toys

for their children, the Christmas

Maiyah gets a star

THE GREATEST gift

Gilberthorpe School pupil

Maiyah Martin could receive

for Christmas is to know people

in need have the necessities to

get by.

With the help of her mum

Donna and younger brother

MJ, Maiyah, 8, has been doing

her bit to fundraise for the City

Mission by selling baking at

food markets.

Her services were recognised

when she was presented with a

star by the City Mission as part

of its Walk of Stars pathway

which runs along Oxford Tce.

All of the proceeds from

her baking have gone towards

buying pamper packs full of

toiletries to donate to the City

Mission.

Maiyah’s mission is

documented on her Facebook

page, Girl With Cake Projects,

which has more than 300

Facebook likes.

The pathway displays the

names of people who have

made significant contributions

to the City Mission’s cause.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Dilo Oil – The Remarkable

Skin Rejuvenator

Until Rachel

Hunter’s popular

TV series “TOUR OF

BEAUTY” Dilo Oil was

relatively unknown being

one of the best-kept secrets of

the Pacific Islands. It may however

be the number one natural beauty oil

available as it possesses powerful natural

skin regeneration, anti-aging and healing

properties.

According to ethnobotanist Chris

Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-low)

Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as

it is one of the most effective agents

in promoting the regeneration and

formation of new tissue, thereby

accelerating wound healing and the

growth of healthy skin. Dilo Oil is

super-absorbing and nourishing

and can penetrate all three layers

of the skin, offering exceptional

cell hydration and regeneration.

As well as this, Dilo Oil has potent

anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial,

antifungal and antioxidant properties.

Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep the

skin young and youthful and for just about

any skin complaint. Some of the conditions

for which it is considered helpful include

abrasions, cuts and cracks, acne and acne

scars, pimples, blemishes, stretch marks,

wrinkles, blisters, burns (including chemical

and radiation), diabetic sores, rashes, shaving

irritation, dry or scaly skin, eczema, psoriasis,

Revered for centuries by Polynesians & Southeast Asians for its remarkable skin

anti-aging & healing properties, Dilo oil comes from the nut of the sacred Dilo

tree, “the tree of a thousand virtues”. Dilo oil is often called the beauty oil as it

can penetrate all three layers of the skin offering exceptional cell hydration &

regeneration. It has a unique ability to stimulate the growth of healthy skin cells

Collagen

The Body’s Youth Protein

Collagen is the primary

protein in the body. It is a

major component of skin,

hair, nails, muscles, tendons,

ligaments, joint cartilage,

bones, gums, teeth, eyes, and

blood vessels.

In fact collagen is

the primary structural

component for all tissue in the

body, providing the strength

and resilience associated with

youth, beauty and wellness.

The body’s natural collagen

production decreases with age resulting in

many signs of aging, such as flaccid skin,

wrinkles, ligament and tendon injuries and

aching joints. Collagen supplementation

is one of the most fundamental things a

person can do to prevent premature aging

and promote youthful vitality.

NEOCELL are the industry leaders in

research on collagen supplementation.

perfected a way to hydrolyse collagen and

effectively reduce its molecular weight this

improving the absorption of collagen into

the blood stream by over 90%.

A clinical study on NEOCELL

COLLAGEN has shown skin hydration to

increase an average of 21% and up to 50%,

with 92% of test subjects experiencing

firmer, softer skin. Most people taking

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.”

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

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

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

Ms Jone said the board’s role

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

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

agreement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment 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.”

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

It was the firs time Mr Garth

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

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.
