ABOUT TIME. That’s the big disaster and

crime prevention expo set down for March 9

(see page 1).

The eastern suburbs have needed

something like this since the aftermath of

the 2011 quake. There was a wake-up call on

November 14, 2016, when the big Kaikoura quake struck and led

to tsunami worries.

Post the Kaikoura quake, there has been much debate, but little

action, about an evacuation plan – in other words, getting away

from the coast as quickly as possible.

And with a couple of large fault lines in Pegasus Bay, a plan is

fairly critical. So good on Soozie Bragg and Paul Lonsdale for

getting the expo up and running. And it will include some crime

prevention tips too. Be there.

Bus battle almost over for rest home

• By Matt Slaughter

RESIDENTS OF a Mairehau rest

home may have won their battle

with Environment Canterbury

to get an alternative transport


Diana Isaac Retirement Village

resident Graham Tate has met

with ECan representatives to

discuss what

could replace

the bus service

which no

the village on

Philpotts Rd.

The meeting

Graham Tate

comes after a

long fight by

residents to get an alternative


At a meeting on January

17, ECan raised the idea of

providing a service on a trial

basis to transport retirement

village residents to bus stops and

locations that they can no longer


“We’re very happy to look at

an option that I think could be

better than the bus,” Mr Tate


“The welfare of the elderly is

very much about them getting

out and meeting other people

and seeing other things.”

ECan senior manager of public

transport Stewart Gibbon said

the service would be similar

to what is already offered to

residents in rural areas,

where bus services are not


Mr Tate said the details of the

service still need to be worked


“What I think would be ideal

would be to run a regular route

in a 4km radius with stops at

places like the malls and at

bus hubs and at St George’s,

Burwood and Southern Cross

hospitals,” Mr Tate said.

Mr Gibbon said ECan had

not decided how big the vehicle

would need to be, but Mr Tate

said an eight-seater would be

ideal. ECan would run the

alternative service on a trial basis

if the idea is given the green


“Discussions to date are

exploring the idea of a trial

period of up to six months to

validate the feasibility of the idea

in this specific urban context,”

service, but the majority of the

cost would need to be covered by

Mr Tate said the drivers

would be a mix of volunteers

community members who

Healthcare, which owns Diana

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk


A man was attacked by two dogs

while walking on the corner

of Dudley St and Stapleton St,

Richmond, last Tuesday. Andrea

Tummi said he was bitten in

the back, but the owner of the

dogs ran away after seeing him

bleeding. Police are trying to track

down the owner.


Residents’ concerns about the

number of overgrown weeds

in Prestons will be discussed at

the next city council meeting by

Burwood Ward city councillor

Glenn Livingstone. Resident Ross

Williamson said he had emailed

city council members about the

weed problem, which had been

getting progressively worse since

he moved to the area in July. Cr

Livingstone had been out to view

it for himself and city council

staff inspected some of the worst

affected areas on Thursday.


Brighton the kitten is recovering

after being thrown from a moving

vehicle. On January 9, witnesses

reported the cat, which was taped

inside of a shoe box, being thrown

expected to make a full recovery

“Both Sumner and New

people trying to get out late

at night and some people had

nowhere to go.”

“There’s always this threat

hanging over any coastal

what to do to ensure that you’re

thing to know.”

Ms Bragg said she had been to

community meetings in the past.

At these, she said people had

often voiced safety concerns,

but discussion rarely took place

around strategies to manage

them. She said this had inspired

her to organise the event.

“We’ve got to help people and

the only way we can do that is by

arming them with knowledge,

because knowledge is power.”

The move prompted

financial hit when visiting her

currently has 3000 patients

enrolled who have community

only general practitioner in New

Brighton, South New Brighton

and Southshore.

New Brighton Health Care

clinic business manager Sharron

Harris said it recognised the

financial strain the policy is

having on some patients, and

is considering reintroducing

discounts in the future.

Said Mrs Harris: “New

Brighton Health Care has

decided to remain outside of the

Government’s funding scheme

while it makes a more detailed

assessment of the impacts.”

However, Ms George said these

clinics were sometimes too hard

to get to for the sickest and most

elderly patients.

Eastcare Health practice

manager Fiona McDonald said

its decision to continue to offer

the discount to card-holders

was to ensure patients were not

put off by the same costs as Ms

George had been.

Mrs McDonald said the

community services card

discount decreased the cost of

a doctor’s appointment at the

clinic by $30 for both adults and


“It’s a huge help to people,

especially in this community in

Aranui, so there’s nothing that

will prevent them from coming

when they’re sick.”

Mrs Harris said New Brighton

Health Care sympathised with

community services card-holders

and was assessing the impact of

its policy.

“We are considering the

possibility of introducing

discounts for community

services card-holders because

New Brighton Health

Care recognises the extra

affordability challenges faced

currently considering if we can

Rallying to beautify Richmond

The planter boxes were repurposed

some funding for plants.

Mrs Guglielmo said the planter

boxes would add some muchneeded

vibrancy to Stanmore

“They will have a mixture of

Sustainability key

to organic farming

There’s something for

everyone in the realm of

organic farming but as far

as Bill Martin is concerned,

it’s all about sustainability.

The Training College

Manager at Lincoln

University’s Biological

Husbandry Unit Organics

Trust (BHU) is happy to see

a surge in enthusiasm for

organic food production

as younger generations

become more aware of

environmental concerns.

He says the growing

popularity of organic

production in recent years

means that graduates are

now taking what they have

learned into a broader

range of sectors.

“It’s not just about

growing, wholesaling

and retailing food anymore. They’re

going into schools and teaching primary

and secondary schoolers about the

importance of sustainable farming and

gardening and really starting to embed the

philosophy into the education system.”

As far as conventional agricultural

practices are concerned, he says farmers

should be encouraged to optimise their

production, rather than maximise it at the

expense of the environment.

“We need to change our agricultural

paradigm and re-evaluate our priorities.”

Mr Martin says those interested in a

career in organics should enrol in the

one-year Diploma in Agri-Food Production

course, which is open to students either

with or without university entrance.

Introduced last year, it includes Tikanga

and Mahinga Kai components and can

lead to employment in organic primary

production or other sectors related

to organics, especially education and


“The course offers a good grounding

in the principles of organic agriculture,

teaching the philosophies and histories

of organics and providing practical

knowledge of how they are applied,” Mr

Martin says.

Apply now for the Diploma in Organic

Agri-Food Production and begin studying

in February 2019.

Grow a career

in organics

Lincoln University’s Diploma in Organic Agri-Food Production will prepare

you for work in the organic sector or your own garden or smallholdings. It’s

a full-time, one-year programme that covers the theory and practice behind

contemporary organic agri-food production.

Join us in February to find out what growing organically on an agricultural

scale really means.

It comes after debate within the

community following a new enrolment

zone for the school’s shared

site on QE II Park, which it will

it will only be accepting enrolments

First priority on the waiting list

will go to siblings of current students,

Board member launching

business with global goal

• By Jess Gibson

Tuesday January 29 2019


A JEWELLERY business set up

by a community board member

to tackle global issues is finally

set to launch.

Bead and Proceed, which

aims to spark up conversations

about the United Nations’ 17

sustainability goals, is set to

launch on February 24.

Its chief executive Bridget

Williams – who is also a


Community Board member –

plans to host a launch party with

business partners, Luke Gillespie

and Anita Chang, at Avebury

House from 12.30-3pm on the

day of the launch.

New Zealand agreed to adopt

the sustainability goals in 2015.

They aim to end poverty, protect

the environment and minimise

inequality, among other

aspirations, by 2030.

“These goals are for everyone,

no one can be left behind,” said

Miss Williams.

The jewellery kits aim to get

people together to create their

own necklaces, with five beads

that can be painted different

colours to represent the goals

they want achieved.

The money from each kit

another kit to a low decile school

passenger cruise in three years

has been delayed again.

The cruise was originally

scheduled to take place in

December but was pushed back

to this month. It has now been

delayed again until next month.

Tug Lyttelton Preservation

Society head stoker Mike Bruce

said there is still paperwork to

complete before any passenger

cruises on the restored tug can

take place.

“The boat is fine, everything

is absolutely tickety-boo there.

We are just waiting on the final

sign-off from the maritime safety


Mr Bruce said once the

paperwork has been completed,

it could take up to three weeks

to prepare the boat for passenger


“If we get the sign-off at the

end of this week, we will have to

reheat the boiler. That’s going to

take five to six days to do, then it

is going to take a few days to get

a roster together. After that it’s

going to be a good two to three

weeks before we get steam up.”

Lyttelton Community

Association chairman Ken

Maynard said he was becoming

concerned the tug boat might not

return at all.





Fire rages, homes at risk

Cruise on hold

“It would be a massive loss if

it was lost forever. It’s one piece

of the puzzle in Lyttelton, if it

goes it could have an impact on

tourism and local businesses in

the area.”

One Lyttelton cafe owner, who

did not want to be named, said

the tug brought a lot of business

to the area.

However, Lyttelton Coffee

Company owner Stephen Mateer

said it did not boost his business.

“My customers tend to be the

more environmentally-friendly

type. The tug has quite a specific

clientele and I don’t notice a

difference in my business when it

is running.”

Mr Mateer, a self-confessed

“greenie”, did not appreciate the

tug’s impact on the environment.

“The tug boat burns coal

and lets out a large amount

of black smoke. If it could be

re-powered with more of an

environmentally-friendly design,

that would be great.”

First national tennis title

for Cashmere youngster

DETERMINED: Hollie Tribble riding at the Oceania BMX

Continental Championships.


Hollie pedals to third at

Oceania BMX champs

• By Jess Gibson

NORTH Avon Christchurch

BMX Club rider Hollie Tribble

has made her mark at an

international level.

Hollie, 8, finished third

at the Oceania Continental

Championships last Saturday

in Te Awamutu, where she

competed against riders a year

older than her.

The event for nine-year-olds

was won by Cambridge rider

Beth Walker. More than 500

riders competed at the champs

– eight of them from the North

Avon Christchurch club.

Hollie qualified after finishing

eighth at the national competiton

in New Plymouth last year, in

spite of suffering a big crash

during the race.

Earlier this month, Hollie

competed at the South Island

BMX Titles in Dunedin, ​where

she won all of her seven races

and the overall event for girls

aged seven to nine, defending her

2018 title as the top South Island

rider in her category. Hollie

started riding at age four after her

mother Hayley Groves took her

to watch a national competition

in Hornby.

“She decided then that she

receives her trophy for

finishing third in the ‘girls aged

nine’ section. PHOTO: HAYLEY


wanted to be a BMX rider, so

she tested us until she could get

a BMX bike and go to training,”

said Ms Groves.

Hollie said her favourite part

about riding is “travelling around

New Zealand” with friends from

her club. She will soon have to

balance three to four days of

training a week.

“Training is after school so

sometimes homework can be

a challenge, but Hollie tries to

complete her homework before

school each day by getting up

early,” said Ms Groves.

RUBY YOUNG teamed up with

Auckland’s Sasha Situe to win

the girls doubles title at the 12

and under New Zealand junior

championships at Wilding Park

last week.

The 12-year-old Cashmere

player and Sasha were more

than worthy of their No 1

seeding, dropping just three

games in their opening two

matches. In the semi-final they

defeated the all-Christchurch

pairing of Emma Mason and

Tatum Falck 6-2,6-3.

In the final they met No 3

seeds and the all Auckland

pairing of Aisha Das and Renee

Zhang. Ruby and Sasha had a

crucial late break to win the

opening set 7-5. The second set

was an even tighter affair going

to a tiebreaker, which they won

8-6 to win 7-5, 7-6(6).

“It was really exciting and

nerve-racking, but my partner

[Sasha] was really supportive,”

said Ruby.

In singles Ruby defeated

fellow Cashmere player Lucia

Gale 6-4, 6-1 in the first

round. She then accounted for

Ruth Baantarawa from New

Caledonia 6-1, 6-2 before falling

to No 4 seed Maria Galatescu

5-7, 4-6 in a tight quarter-final.


Club will host one of Tennis

New Zealand’s new money

tournaments being launched

to boost the number of

competitive tournaments on the

national calendar.

Kiwi Money Tournaments

will launch next month with six

pilot events.

The new tournaments will

offer $2000 in prize money per


The men’s draw will have

up to a 32-strong qualifying

field starting on Fridays and a

24-strong main draw starting

Saturday. The women’s draw

will start with a 24-strong main

draw field.

“Every successful tennis

nation has a highly competitive

tournament pathway. New

Zealand was missing an all-year

tournaments circuit where

junior, casual and pro players

could compete against each

other. These tournaments

are the perfect step towards a

complete tournament calendar


COMPETITIVE: Ruby Young (far left) and Sasha Situe (centre

left) won the national 12 and under girls doubles title by

defeating Aisha Das (centre right) and Renee Zhang.

It was the second close

encounter Ruby had had with

Ruth during the week. The two

met at the teams tournament

played before the 12 and

under New Zealand junior

championships which resulted

in ruby losing 6-1, 2-6, 7-10 in a

third set super-tiebreaker.

Ruby – who plays in

Cashmere’s premier women’s

interclub team – began playing

at the age of seven and is

coached by her father Greg

Young who is a former premier

interclub player.

She will begin her first

year at St Margaret’s College

shortly on a sports scholarship.

Ruby is also a rep level football

and plays for Cashmere


Bid to boost number

of national tournaments

in New Zealand,” said Tennis

New Zealand performance

coach Christopher Lambert.

Cashmere will host the last

of the six tournaments from

March 29-31. The other venues

holding tournaments from

late February are North Shore,

Auckland, Hamilton, Blenheim

and Timaru.

The winners of the

tournaments will receive $600

in prize money, with defeated

finalists receiving $300. Semifinalists

will receive $50.

House of Cards is a day-time bridge club

situated in Merivale. Our philosophy is to

provide a friendly, family-type environment

for bridge players.

Bridge is not only a wonderful, stimulating

game, it is also splendidly social. We have

had much pleasure in seeing many new

friendships flourish over the years.

House of Cards is especially renowned

for its teaching and we have taught literally

thousands of beginners as well as improvers,

in Christchurch and around New Zealand.

We have run several national teachers’

conferences and have been instrumental

in creating a national standard for bridge


We have also written a whole series of

bridge books for new and improving players

which are widely used in New Zealand,

Australia and the United Kingdom.

We are a friendly, enthusiastic team

who welcome new players. We have four

sessions dedicated especially for the novice

player, so you needn’t feel nervous!

We will also introduce you to

SkyBridgeClub. This is an online club

catering for the improving player, where

you can practice online during your course.

It’s a great way to learn.

Come in and see us. We’d love to meet you.

The dance floor – a place where bills

and responsibility don’t exist, where

stress is gone and nothing matters but the

music. The dance floor is freedom, say the

Cathedral City Line Dancers.

A recent German study tested people

who tried different forms of exercise and

then measured their hippocampuses

(the memory centre of their brains) and

those who did Line Dancing were better

protected from dementia and memory loss.

So, if you like to dance, want a social life

with a friendly bunch of people and a lot

of laughs while exercising your brain, then

Line Dancing could be just what you are

looking for. They even cater for people with

two left feet.

You can have all this, plus meet new

friends by joining Cathedral City Line

Dancers and learning to dance with Mary.

Monday 11 February and the options are

extensive from Art to Yoga and everything

in between we are sure regardless of your

age or interest you will find something

to tempt you. Classes at Papanui High

School are held in a warm, friendly relaxed

environment and our tutors are supportive

and well qualified in their chosen fields.

One of our new courses on offer is

New experiences at WEA

It is almost time for the new term to

start here at the Canterbury Workers

Educational Association (WEA). Just as the

new year brings a chance for us all to reflect

and set goals for positive change in the year

ahead, so to does the new school year for

us at the WEA, as we plan and schedule

courses, talks and learning opportunities

across the coming months. Positive change

(whether for personal or planetary gain)

is what the WEA is all about and we are

excited to offer plenty to support positive

change in the Term 1 programme (which

runs February 11th to April 7th).

With new courses in printmaking and

creative writing, and workshops ranging

from crafting feminism to renaissance

dance there is plenty to help you get creative

this summer.

We also have talks coming up from and

about some truly inspiring people and

organisations. We will be joined by Mojo

Mathers on 20th February (New Zealand’s

first deaf Member of Parliament) for a

look at why disability representation in

politics matters for all of us. Then during

Seaweek (6th March) we will hear from the

volunteers at Sea Shepherd on the threats

to our underwater ecosystems and the

work they are doing to protect them. There

are also talks about Marie Curie, Ernest

Shackleton and William Morris to mention

but a few.

For those wanting to take action in their

own lives to make a difference, a course in

taking sustainability to the next level will

be on Wednesday evenings (it even has

dinner included) followed by one on how

to live well with less (Living Tiny(er)) on

Thursday evenings.

All in all there are more than 40 listed

events, all of which can be booked

online at . Our printed

programme is available from our front

porch (59 Gloucester street) or at your

local library, and our office is open

9.30-3pm Monday to Friday. We look

forward to answering your questions and

hopefully helping

you to make 2019

a year of new

experiences and

positive learning!

FREE Arts & Design

course, with NCEA built in

For those looking for a role that

combines artistic and digital talents, then

this outstanding, FREE, entry level course

delivered by local Training Provider

Trainme, is perfect for those wishing to

pursue, graphic design, photography or

digital media as a career.

The course covers the introduction to

media techniques such as drawing and

photography. Students will learn to use

design software and create their own design

concepts while collaborating with other

students on creative projects.

This course is FREE to students aged 16

to 19 and they only have to have NCEA 1

to join. Students without NCEA 1 can be

admitted, if they show artistic or digital


“Many feel that school is not working for

them or they left without qualifications,”

says Rhys Pollard, Marketer with tertiary

educator Trainme. “While not necessarily

academically minded, they do

have artistic talents and are very

much into digital technology.”

“This FREE six-month

Trainme course, combines

these in a very hands-on,

practical way, giving them an

intro into various digital media.

This way, they can decide which

direction to pursue as their

career focus.”

“As an NZQA approved

programme, NCEA credits

are built in, so if they apply


themselves, they can graduate with a New

Zealand Certificate in Arts and Design

Level 2, as well as gaining credits towards

NCEA level 1 or 2.” Says Pollard.

“NCEA results will depend on how many

credits they bring to the course to start

with, but as it’s a fun subject, it won’t feel

like school at all.”

Successful Graduates from this

programme could pathway into higher

study in media arts, which could include

graphic design, video production,

photography or one of the many emerging

digital-based careers. Places are limited, so

students are encouraged to apply as soon as

they can.

Enrolments are Now Open, for a

February start. Contact Trainme at their

Luxury waterfront residence - one of NZ’s finest homes

145 Main Road, Redcliffs

Price: $3,795,000

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 4 toilets | 3 living rooms | 1 dining room | 1 office/study | 3 car-garage | Listing Number: PI54988

Rarely are we favoured with the

opportunity to bring to the market a home

of this quality and size within a prestigious

neighbourhood, where luxury residences

are few and far between. With all the

earthquake repairs thoroughly completed

the house is now insured with NZI ready

for the next owners to enjoy its splendour.

Epitomizing a cutting edge design,

this striking home is a commitment to

contemporary architectural language and

unparalleled luxury. Designed by Stufkens

+ Chambers Architects the home has

perfectly encapsulated an ambience of

timeless elegance, while forsaking nothing

in practicality and functionality.

With a rich floor area of 501sqm, the

home built in 2010 is notable for the way

in which it explores the three separate

buildings joined by transparent links

wrapped around an open courtyard

to create a timeless, modern building,

appropriate to its urban location.

With precise planning and detailing it

incorporates four bedrooms, several living

areas, soundproof media room, mezzanine,

study, gym, pool/spa, and an air conditioned

wine cellar as well as triple car garaging.

All with water views and effortless indooroutdoor

flow, lighting and well thought out

landscaping, it is the perfect result.

The natural palette of materials and

colours used throughout the home delivers

on a promise of calm and clarity with oak

timber veneer, timber flooring, exposed

aggregate concrete walls, frosted glass

and simple white interior. Inspections

will reveal the full extent of the luxurious

detailing. Automated roller blinds, localized

air-conditioning, double-glazing, extensive

underfloor heating, smart security and

home automation system start a very long

list of quality specifications.

Located just a few minutes to either the

city or the beach, with local amenities

meaning you will never need to leave this

pinnacle position

The extravagance of this home requires

new occupants and prudent purchasers

will recognise that this is indeed a rare

opportunity for a life that excites the senses.

Adequate superlatives elude us, so we must

make do with just two words - SEE IT!
