AFTER 20 years of caring for

some of Christchurch’s most

vulnerable flying residents,

Jackie Stevenson is ready to

spread her own wings.

Tenders sought

for clock

tower work

Page 3 Page 4

The 72-year-old from

Parklands says she’s on the

lookout for someone who shares

her love for birds to take her

place nursing them back to

health.

Mrs Stevenson gave up her

job as a nurse when she realised

birds were her true passion.

Since then, her home has been

transformed into a bird rescue

centre.

However, Mrs Stevenson

said the long days and sleepless

Kites fill

the sky over

to fly the coop

nights that come with caring for

the sick birds have taken a toll.

“Each year I must admit, I

think this has to be my last

Hawke St

car park

potholes

start to

disappear

• By Matt Slaughter

THE POTHOLES in New

Brighton’s badly-damaged Hawke

St car park are finally starting to

disappear.

Work started last Monday

to repair the car parking area

outside Coupland’s bakery.

The cost of the work will be

split between Coupland’s and the

private owner of the site.

Coupland’s general manager for

retail operations Derek Cotton

said its decision to partially

fund the repairs was to ensure

customer satisfaction and safety.

“It’s not a great car park down

there and what we wanted to do

was try and do the right thing

and unfortunately if the landlord

can’t meet the obligations, then

we still put the customers first,”

he said.

“What it will do for our

customers is give them the

security of being able to park

without risk of injury or getting

their feet wet when it rains, which

is going to make their shopping

experience a lot more pleasant.”

from the editor’s desk

GOOD ON Coupland’s for taking a

lead over the ongoing problem of repairing

potholes in the Hawke St car park

(see page 1).

The car park has been a problem for

years, so finally it is great to see something

happening. There are about 10-12 businesses and their

landlords who are responsible for maintaining various parts of

the car park.

So good on Coupland’s and the landlord who is sharing the

cost of the repairs. Says Derek Cotton from Coupland’s: “What

it will do for our customers is give them the security of being

able to park without risk of injury or getting their feet wet when

it rains, which is going to make their shopping experience a lot

more pleasant.” Can’t argue with that.

Tenders sought to fix clock tower

But New Brighton business owner says

delays have been too costly

• By Matt Slaughter

TENDERS ARE being called

for to repair the earthquakedamaged

New Brighton Clock

Tower.

The city council wants to

appoint one contractor to

undertake repairs on the New

Brighton and Scarborough clock

towers.

However, a New Brighton

business owner says this is

bitter-sweet considering how

long scaffolding has been in place

around the tower. ​

The scaffolding is costing

ratepayers $1500 a month and has

been up since March.

“I do have to ask the reasoning

behind why you would pay

money for no reason?” said Paper

Plus New Brighton owner Blair

Hughes.

However, a city council

spokesperson told Pegasus Post

in December “the scaffold was

required to enable the engineers

and project team to fully assess

the damage.”

But Mr Hughes said the repair

of the clock tower and other

projects in the east had simply

taken too long to complete.

“We know what we have to do,

we just need to get on with it.”

“I would have to say the

strength of the community is

amazing considering how hard

they’ve had to fight for just their

basic rights.”

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge was confident

its repair strategy would save

ratepayers by having one

contractor handle both the

New Brighton and Scarborough

towers.

“We believe the cost for

keeping the scaffold up is minor,

considering the cost efficiencies

in packaging both projects

together. The tenderers also

require the scaffold to be up to

fully inspect the structure and

damage so that they can price

their tender.”

Repairs were due to be made

to the New Brighton tower

in September, but following

investigations, including the

removal of paint from the

structure, the extent of the

damage became more apparent.

Repair work has not started on

either tower.

Once a contractor has been

secured, the repairs are expected

to take six months to complete.

Fire rages, homes at risk

FALLEN: Several trees came down or were damaged along the South Brighton Domain estuary

edge as a result of the high wind on January 23.

Concerns grow over estuary trees

• By Matt Slaughter

SAFETY CONCERNS have

increased after several trees

were left straddling walking

paths along the South Brighton

Domain estuary edge following

recent strong wind.

Residents say they are worried

about the stability of the trees

which were left standing after the

wind.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board chairman Tim Sintes said

concerns have been raised with

city council in the past about how

these trees would fare in an event

like the one experienced two

weeks ago.

City council staff had visited

the estuary edge and reassured

people if the trees fell, they

would fall away from the

nearby walking track and South

Brighton Holiday Park.

However, Mr Sintes

said this was the opposite

of what happened.

“Our strong winds

are from the south and

it’s been proven over

and over again that a

lot of them tend to fall

backwards, back over

towards the track.”

Mr Sintes said he went

down to view the damage after

the wind and most of the fallen

trees were rotted through.

He said there was a good

chance those still standing would

be rotten too.

Tim Sintes

“Some of them that came down

from the outside looked like they

were an okay tree, but when they

come down you realise there’s

nothing inside them, just

dust.”

Mr Sintes said this was

because of water from the

estuary flooding its banks

and getting into tree roots.

“As we’ve lost the

protection of the estuary

edge and the reno

mattresses that were once

there, the wave action is

getting into the sandy banks and

undermining the tree roots.”

The damage to these protective

barriers happened during the

earthquakes.

Mr Sintes said they had not yet

been repaired or replaced by the

city council.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said it was

currently

looking into

options to

protect the

estuary edge.

But the damaged

barriers around

the estuary were

not unsafe, he

said.

“An

assessment of

Andrew

Rutledge

the site is taking place with the

aim of developing options for

coastal edge management.”

“The structures were

compromised during the

earthquakes. However, they do

not present any safety risk to the

public”.

South Brighton Holiday Park

owner Sam Hawkins said there

was potential for more damage.

“One tree that fell would have

been at least 8m tall or more and

it went right across a pathway.”

Mr Hawkins believes out of

the trees still standing along the

estuary, there are 50 or 60 with

the potential to fall in a storm.

Mr Rutledge said six trees

were cut down last Tuesday due

to this risk. Mr Hawkins said

if dangerous trees close to the

holiday park were not removed,

this would cause him to not feel

“safe to send guests or tourists

through that area.”

Work gets

under way

to repair

car park

•From page 1

The car parking area was

badly-damaged in the 2010 and

2011 earthquakes.

Coastal Ward city councillor

David East said between

10 and 12 private owners

are responsible for the

maintenance of different parts

of the car park.

Cr East said very little

work has been done to fix the

damage and complaints about

it had been “going on for years.”

He said injuries at the site

were common.

“There’s been the odd person

that has tripped in the potholes

and elderly people have even

probably had breaks of some

sort.”

New Brighton Business and

Landowners Association’s Paul

Lonsdale said pressure had

been put on the landlords who

owned different parts of the car

park to repair their sites over

summer.

Mr Cotton said repairs to

Coupland’s car park would

be finished in the next two to

three weeks.

•From page 1

“I’m getting older and each

year’s getting harder. It’s quite

physical work,” Mrs Stevenson

said.

She said for all of the birds she

had managed to save, many died

in her care and it had made her

job even harder.

Her husband supported the

decision to seek someone to take

over her role.

“He hates coming home and

seeing me so tired, so I’ve got to

think of him too.” Mrs Stevenson

estimates she cared for about 200

birds last year. All of her work

has been voluntary, with some

financial support coming from

donations.

Mrs Stevenson received $100

in petrol vouchers a year from

the Department of Conservation,

and dog and cat biscuits to mash

up and feed to the birds from the

SPCA and Dogwatch.

She said cats were the main

cause of injuries to birds. But

recently the number of injuries

caused by vehicles had increased.

The number of native wood

pigeons brought to her with

injuries was also increasing. The

birds commonly received injuries

from flying into car windows.

She also cares for a lot of native

fantails.

Mrs Stevenson said there are a

few simple things people can do

to make her job easier.

“One of the main things is

not picking birds up that don’t

Helping people

Sorting out transport

get into politics

• Matt Slaughter

CHRISTCHURCH East MP Poto

Williams has started hosting

meetings for people who are

interested in the ways they can

make their political mark.

Four people attended the first

meeting, which was held at her

home on Sunday.

Discussion took place on

what was involved in running,

supporting and funding a

campaign.

The meeting “certainly

sent a couple of people away

thinking about things,” Ms

Williams said.

The meetings cater to

those who want to know

how to get involved in policy

discussion, what’s involved

in being a candidate, or those

just interested in meeting likeminded

people. She said with

local body elections in October,

now was the perfect time to start

educating people.

“It’s really about just talking

to people who might want to

get involved in politics from the

view that they might want to be a

candidate.”

Poto

Williams

“It’s also for people who

might want to get involved in

supporting a candidate or helping

run a campaign.”

Ms Willams said after a

successful first meeting, she

wanted them to take place once

a month and venues would

be organised once she knew

how many more people were

interested. She said meetings

like these would have helped

her when she first got into

politics.

“I know as an elected

representative I didn’t know

a lot about what would be

involved in standing before I

asked somebody.”

She said the support and

advice she had since received

throughout her political career

had been one of the main reasons

she had been able to get to where

she is today.

“My local Labour electorate

committee have been very, very

supportive from the moment I

started.”

Ms Williams said she “can not

say enough for what happens

locally” when these sorts of

support networks are in place.

to the article

last week about

the ongoing

Village residents

are having over the axing of

Environment Canterbury

introduced the idea of a

Community Vehicle Trust for

Diana Isaac Retirement Village

in November and has had two

conversations with Graham

Tate and other residents on the

matter, including the January

meeting.

Throughout Canterbury, where

traditional scheduled public

transport is unavailable, the

Community Vehicle Trust model

has proven to be highly successful

in delivering accessible,

flexible and affordable transport

options to defined geographical

communities. We are focused on

identifying a solution that is sustainable

and will meet the longer

term needs of the residents. The

transport needs of the residents,

and the flexible, close proximity

and community nature of the

OPTION: ECan is investigating a service to transport retirement

village residents now that the Orbiter bus no longer stops

outside the village.

Community Vehicle Trust model

appears to align well with the

current and future transport

needs of the residents.

We are still exploring the

viability of the option with the

residents and Ryman Healthcare.

However, discussions to date

have been positive and focused

on running a trial period of up

to six months, to validate the

feasibility of the idea in this

specific urban context. ECan

would provide support to the retirement

village in setting up its

Community Vehicle Trust, then

all operational matters moving

forward would be managed by

the trust, such as determining

vehicle size and type, destinations

and trip times.

Community Vehicle Trusts

receive annual grant funding

from ECan and the New Zealand

Transport Agency, and obtain

grant funding from other

sources. They also receive funds

from customer usage of the

service to cover the cost of the

journeys taken. These funding

sources combined enable the

trust to procure and manage

their vehicles and associated

administrative functions.

Young players

strongly supported

at local rugby club

Junior players at the New Brighton

Rugby Club will be eagerly awaiting

the start of the 2019 season, which

kicks off in early April.

The club has 250 junior players,

aged from as young as four up to

13, and seeing them take to the field

in their black and gold jerseys on a

Saturday morning makes the club’s

committee members, the coaches

and the parents feel very proud, says

Junior Club captain, Cara Stewart.

Cara’s husband Dougie is also a

Junior Club captain at New Brighton,

and both their sons play for the club.

“Belonging to the club is a great

opportunity for young people to get

involved and be part of something –

everyone enjoys that,” Cara says.

The club is very supportive of the

young players and encourages them,

whatever their skill level, she says.

The 11-13 year-olds have two

practice nights a week, and the 8-10

year-olds practise once a week, playing

at the club’s two grounds – Thompson

Park and Rawhiti Domain.

Inter-club rugby is played on

Saturday mornings, with matches

taking place at club grounds right

around the city.

“It can be a very busy time for

parents, especially if they have two or

three youngsters playing at different

venues,” Cara says.

A team night for the junior players is

held once a season, a family occasion

at which the young club members

are introduced to the senior New

Brighton players, who are all very

supportive of their young club-mates.

New Brighton was also fortunate

to have All Black Ryan Crotty, who

played his junior rugby at New

Brighton and retains close ties with

the club, and Crusader Ollie Jager

attend their Junior Club Day last

season, with the pair presenting

Player of the Day medals and signing

banners for the young players.

Jager, who represents both

Canterbury and the Crusaders, has

played for the club’s Premier Colts

and Senior Division One team in

recent seasons, while Canterbury and

Crusaders player Billy Harmon was

another New Brighton Club member.

“We’re very proud of the New

Brighton Club, but it wouldn’t be the

success it is without the support of the

coaches, the committee and of course,

the parents,” Cara says.

Brighton Rugby Club, contact Cara

Photography exhibition

showcases the

‘many faces’ of Linwood

ALASDAIR WRIGHT is

combining his 55-year love affair

with cameras and photography

with his love for the area he

lives in.

The Linwood

resident is one of 12

photographers with

work on display at an

exhibition focusing on

the community and its

diversity.

The Many Faces of the

Inner City East/Linwood

exhibition was set to

open yesterday at the

Linwood Community

Arts Centre and Eastside Gallery.

Wright, 59, said he has been

living in Linwood for seven years

and has seen it go through huge

changes since the earthquakes.

He said the aim of his

photographs is to document

what Linwood was like before the

changes occurred and the past is

forgotten.

“It’s important to record things

because when you think I’ll

take that photo now and don’t

have a camera and go back a few

days or years later, the case may

Alasdair Wright

be that they’re gone.” Wright

said Linwood’s population

and landscape has changed.

He said showcasing this in the

photographs was key.

“It’s important to see the

changing face of Linwood because

we’ve got a wide gamut of

society around here.”

“You can travel the

world without even

having to leave home.”

Linwood Community

Arts Centre and Eastside

Gallery exhibition coordinator

Shirley Scarlett

said the display was

about Linwood residents

like Wright “defining

the neighbourhood on their own

terms.”

Ms Scarlett said the exhibition

was also about breaking down the

stereotypes that could sometimes

have a negative effect on how

others viewed Linwood.

“The exhibition focuses on

celebrating and delving deeper

into a community that doesn’t

always get the best coverage.”

It was about “capturing the

good and the beautiful alongside

the challenges and concerns” of

the community, she said

THE SEASIDE Toy Library

hopes an open day will make it

a haven for toy lovers and their

families.

The library, which operates

out of St Luke’s Church in South

New Brighton, will host the

event on March 9 from 9.30amnoon.

It aims to promote the library

to people in the area and attract

new members.

Seaside Toy Library chairman

Andy Dimond said it was one

of many businesses in the east

that had a hard time after the

earthquakes.

“The library did struggle

financially and struggled with

attracting membership and

volunteers.”

Since then, Mr Dimond said

the toy library had employed a

part-time librarian and this had

helped it gain some stability.

However, he said word needed

to get out if the library should be

used to its full potential.

“There are a lot of young

families in the area who don’t

know about the toy library,

how much it costs and when

we operate, so this is a good

opportunity to promote

the library and also build

relationships in the local area,”

he said.

Centuries old folk remedy supports

good health!

A fermented liquid health

tonic offers an array of

powerful health benefits. It is

none other than the popular

apple cider vinegar or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the “Father

of Medicine” – ACV has been renowned for its

curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS & FOLK

MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis reports how he

found that Vermonters who regularly consumed

ACV and Honey had excellent health with

many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the

farm even when well into their eighties. He also

noted the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting almost

total relief after taking a course of the

mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider

vinegar counteracted calcium

deposits and helped the body

control calcium use. He also noted

that Vermonters who consumed

ACV and H around meal time

had excellent blood pressure and

circulation. The reason he found

was that protein foods thickened

the blood and vinegar thinned it.

As the blood thickens it cannot

pass as easily and quickly through

the blood vessels and capillaries. This

poor blood flow would reduce cellular

health by limiting nutrients to the cells

as well as waste elimination from the cells.

To prevent cell damage the body naturally

increases blood pressure but this puts more stress

on the blood vessels, organs and heart. Having

ACV and H with meals will help prevent protein

raising the blood pressure. It also contributes

to a feeling of greater well-being because the

thinner blood circulates quickly and more easily

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found regular

consumption of CV and H to be an excellent

health tonic with numerous Health attributes.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all the

goodness of the apple in a form that is readily

accepted by the bodyGood health starts with good

digestion and assimilation of nutrients. ACV taken

before food will stimulate and promote healthy

digestion and assimilation of vital nutrients for

good health. A well-functioning digestive system

helps prevent disease by neutralising any toxic

substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is produced

in the traditional way and results are likely to

prove disappointing with these other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV & ACV with 20%

Manuka Honey is produced in Canterbury from

Organic whole apples in the traditional way. It is

double strength so you can use less.

Device to prevent

snoring

Why put up with broken sleep, when

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and

dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth

for comfort, and a follow up service is

provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with

Snores for 22 years and has had a 98%

success rate with

people using the

appliance. Snoring

can be a health

hazard, causing

sleep apnoea, where

the person actually

stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause

short-term memory

loss, tiredness and

contribute to high

blood pressure.

The Snorex

device does not feel

restrictive, is noninvasive

and carries

a money-back

guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone can

phone for an appointment.

For an information pack or to discuss

the Snorex further, phone Denise Lim on

377 4318 or check out the website

www.snorex.co.nz

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.

Through advanced research they have

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

NEOCELL COLLAGEN reported seeing

visible improvements within two weeks.

Collagen supplementation provides

the nutrients necessary to support the

body’s collagen supply. It can help reduce

fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin

elasticity, support building of strong bones

and teeth, strengthen the nails and hair,

and is vital for muscle growth, It also

assists weight loss by helping burn fat

for energy, promotes wound healing by

supporting the regeneration of healthy

tissue as well as help support overall

health.

NEOCELL COLLAGEN and further

information is available from the

Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s

Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757.
