He has been mowing lawns,

selling raffles and doing other

odd jobs to help find $4500 to

But mowing lawns and doing

other jobs may soon take a back

David received a call from

Concern

over

cycleway

plans

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BUSINESSES AND residents

could be hit hard by a major

realignment of a street in

Riccarton to make way for a

cycleway.

The removal of on-street carparking,

cul-de-sacs, intersection

changes and the shifting of bus

stops could be on the cards for

Elizabeth St as part of a $39 million

cycleway.

The changes are part of the city

council’s proposed South Express

Major Cycle Route, which will

run from Templeton through to

the central city.

The route will travel through

Hornby, Hei Hei, Sockburn, Upper

Riccarton and Riccarton.

The potential changes have

sparked concerns for those in the

area.

The city council is calling for

public feedback on the proposal,

which is the next stage in the

$252 million major cycleway

programme.

Tony Pearson, owner of

Hamilton Motors, which is

located on Elizabeth St near

Matipo St, said the proposed loss

of car parks is going to affect his

business.

IT’S THAT time of the year again – the

countdown to the City2Surf.

This year’s instalment will be the 45th

time the iconic event has been held.

Thousands upon thousands of

Cantabrians have ran, walked, skateboarded, pushed prams and

hobbled to the line over the decades.

On page 8 today, we talk to some of the people who will take

part this year.

The City2Surf is not a race – but many do consider it that, and

that’s fine. Being first across the line is a great incentive.

For others, taking on the City2Surf can be the start or end of

a personal goal from a fitness perspective or just to say I’ve done

it. With two distances, it’s an event for everyone.

Fire concern heightened

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SERIES of vegetation

fires beside railway lines

in Templeton last week has

heightened the need to clean

up overgrown grass beside the

tracks in Hornby.

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association member Mark

Peters said

the fires in

Templeton

last week

were “really

horrendous”

to see.

He had

previously

Mark Peters

warned

weeds next to

the tracks adjacent to Carmen

Rd could be a potential fire risk

due to trains.

Last week a southbound train

was under investigation after the

Templeton fires.

The Dunedin-bound train was

stopped north of Rolleston after

the fires broke out beside State

Highway 1.

“Hopefully it focuses the

importance of getting this

hazard in the heart of Hornby

rectified sooner rather than

later so we don’t have a similar

episode,” Mr Peters said.

DANGER: A fire beside railway tracks in Templeton last week

has heightened concern about this vegetation between

Carmen Rd and the railway in Hornby.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

But KiwiRail South Island

operations general manager

Jeanine Benson said it is still

investigating the cause of the

fires alongside the train tracks.

The city council agreed to tidy

up the Hornby weeds in a bid

to reduce any potential fire risk

after the issue was raised by city

councillor Jimmy Chen.

The work was scheduled to

start on Saturday. Mr Peters

said it was great to see Cr Chen

taking the initiative but it would

have been “ideal” for KiwiRail

to come to the party straight

away and not “muck around.”

KiwiRail land use strategy

general manager Stephanie

Campbell said it advised the

leaseholder of the issue in

November and is working with

them to get it sorted as soon as

possible.

It would not reveal who the

leaseholder of the land was.

Templeton Residents’

Association chairman Garry

Kilday said the maintenance of

the area where the fires started

could have been better.

“We were just lucky they got it

on time and we didn’t have any

more danger than we had,” he

said.

Mr Peters said hopefully the

fact the train tracks in Hornby

are used less frequently will

mean there is less risk.

“But still it only takes one

train to go through there

and a couple of sparks and

suddenly she is all go . . .

there will be a lot of nervous

residents I’d imagine,” Mr

Peters said.

It was reported the fires in

Templeton could have been

caused by issues with the train

including the wagon brakes

being jammed on or hot exhaust

fumes.

Ice skaters

raise $10k for

Cure Kids

HUNDREDS OF ice skaters have

helped raise more than $10,000

for Cure Kids.

The Alpine Ice Sports Centre

donated an entire day’s takings

and donations from customers to

the child health research charity.

The money will go towards

medical research to help improve,

extend and save the lives of Kiwi

kids living with serious illnesses

and conditions.

Alpine Ice manager Finn

O’Leary said the team was

thrilled to raise so much for Cure

Kids research and felt the day had

been an amazing team-building

exercise for staff.

The event saw a record number

of customers visit the ice rink

– the highest in one day since it

first opened 33 years ago.

Cure Kids chief executive

Frances Benge said the generosity

of the Alpine Ice team was

overwhelming.

“To think Alpine Ice donated

their entire day’s takings to Cure

Kids . . . is just so heart-warming.

The money they raised will help

make a difference to the child

health research we are supporting

to find preventative strategies,

treatments and, one day, cures

our children need, “ he said.

Kids happy with giant kakapo

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A VISUAL arts teacher known

for creating giant puppets

in the United Kingdom has

made a visit to a pre-school in

Aidanfield.

Steve Elliott, of Hull, travelled

to Kindercare Aidanfield last

week to teach pupils the art of

making masks.

Children created masks to the

theme of the children’s book

The Owl and the Pussycat before

dressing up for a parade at the

pre-school.

But it was not the only exciting

event of the day for the children.

The class of 27 children aged

between three and five were presented

with a 1m x 1m kakapo

puppet.

The puppet known as Mr

Kakapo was built as part of a

workshop ran by Mr Elliott at

the Exchange Christchurch –

XCHC recently.

Kindercare Aidanfield centre

manager Melissa Lewis said the

giant kakapo looks amazing and

the children were excited to have

Mr Elliott visit.

“We are very lucky to have

it and I know we are going

to cherish it and make it our

mascot moving forward,” she

said.

SPECIAL TREAT: Kindercare Aidanfield pupils with their new mascot Mr Kakapo. (From left):

The school presented Mr

Elliott with pounamu and

flowers made out of flax.

Mr Elliott is known in the

United Kingdom for his giant

puppets he creates called Iota

Little Giants.

In 2001 he began offering

visual arts workshops to all ages

and ability groups.

Mr Elliott will often recycle

natural and biodegradable

materials including willow,

cardboard paper.

He also creates large

sculptured figures and

masks to be worn in carnival

parades.

Noise limits not breached at burnout event

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AN INVESTIGATION has

found the noise limits during

a burnout event at Ruapuna

Speedway were not breached.

The city council has found

the noise from the Southern

SmokeFest event, organised

by New Zealand Burnout

Championship on January 19,

was within the regulated

limits.

Two noise complaints were

made when Ruapuna Speedway

contracted its burnout pad to the

organisation for the event.

City council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston

said it was determined the

event did not breach the noise

levels.

The noise levels that apply for

the speedway are 80dB LAeq and

95dB LAFmax.

The highest LAeq level

recorded on January 19 was 67dB

and the highest LAFmax level

was 90dB.

Yaldhurst Rural Residents’

Association chairwoman Sara

Harnett-Kikstra felt the noise

complaint she made was still

valid.

“Anytime the noise is

unreasonable you complain. It

doesn’t matter if it is in the rules

or not,” she said.

The investigation has also

found the burnout pad at

Ruapuna had a valid resource

consent.

As part of the noise

complaints, the city council also

looked into the validity of the

resource consent.

There was concern it may have

lapsed in October 2006, and

the event was held without the

required resource consent.

But inquiries have found

that because work had started

on it in October 2001 and was

finished in January 2002, it

complied with resource consent

conditions.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Said Ms Weston: “Therefore

the pad was installed during

the appropriate consent period,

giving effect to the resource

consent,” she said.

The burnout pad was built so

boy racers could use it instead of

causing trouble on public roads

and streets.

But by 2014 it was rarely used

by boy racers.

New Zealand Burnout

Championship did not

Parents of taggers

very good, say police

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

POLICE HAVE found that seven

properties were damaged by six

youths involved in a tagging

spree in Halswell.

Last week Western News

reported six youths aged between

13-15 were involved in the

vandalism that occurred between

January 28-29. Police wanted

people who had their properties

or vehicles tagged to call them in

a bid to gauge the extent of the

vandalism committed. Hornby

police youth aid worker Senior

Constable Bruce Ward said

two of the youths aged 14 will

be referred to a family youth

conference before going to the

Youth Court.

He said this was due to police

dealing with the two youths for

previous offences.

The other four will be dealt

with by a youth aid.

Two cars were vandalised

along with five fences.

A tool shed was also broken

into at Aidanfield where an axe

was stolen and found lodged into

a lawn. Senior Constable Ward

said it is likely the damage will

run into thousands of dollars.

He said the parents have been

very good and wanting to hold

the young people to account.

“I think we can move forward

and stop it in its tracks,” he said.

three of us now. Realistically

it could go down to

On-street parking spaces

are due to be reduced at

the Matipo St intersection

along with short-term

parking and loading zones

installed.

Mr Pearson said he can

fit eight cars onto the property

and a further six cars

in the work shop.

“That is not enough.

We are turning around

more cars than that. We

need the accessibility of

putting cars on the road,”

he said.

“We think it is a waste

But city council planning

the anticipated cycle volumes

section of the cycleway is

1900 per day.

A Riccarton Community

Church spokesman said

it is still gathering information

but it does have

concerns about the likely

impact of the changes.

his “camaraderie with the

David.

David and his team

have held raffles, a race

night, a spud sale and a

Steve Hansen, which raised

about $45,000.

David also received

a $350 grant from the

Board as part of its youth

development fund.

Concern over cycleway plans

Central Riccarton Residents’

Association acting

chairwoman Joscelyne

Silcock said it is positive for

residents to be able to come

out of their door and go

onto a cycleway.

But she said she hasn’t

decided if she is for or

against the cycleway due to

car parking being a problem

in the area.

“I can see cycleways being

a positive but then I am

thinking of all this money

and there are still parts of

the city that really haven’t

had their fair share since

the earthquakes,” Mrs

Silcock said.

The CRRA will be making

fun run

Karen Young – This year’s

City2Surf will be the first ever

running event Mrs Young has

participated in. In June last year,

she joined the Energise Health

and Fitness

running club and

has been training

for the 6km

event through

programme. Mrs

Young

Young runs with

her club once a

week while trying

to fit in her own training. “I

think it will be achievable (the

6km),” she said.

Mark Winsley, 49 – Mr

Winsley has tackled the 14km

City2Surf event before, but this

year he will run the 6km. That’s

because his nine-year-old son,

Felix, will be running with him,

along with his partner, Janelle

Clark. The father and son have

been “hiking around the hills

and jogging

around the parks”

to prepare for the

event. Felix is not

took my neighbours son to do it

was a bit older. Felix watched it

first City2Surf in 2009, when

training for a half marathon and

“never looked back.”

Ed Hogbin, 23 – Mr Hogbin

describes himself as a “little bit

of a runner” but it will be his first

time doing the City2Surf. “A few

years back I did a half marathon

and thought I’d have another

crack at one this year.” He will

use the City2Surf 14km event as

a “halfway gauge” while training

to see how on-track he is for his

next half marathon. Hagley Park

is his ‘go-to’ spot for training two

or three times a week.

Angela Penn, 49,

and Geoff Sutton, 42 – The

brother and sister duo aren’t

letting the fact they are getting

older slow the down. The pair

are running the 6km event in the

City2Surf together. “I’m going to

be 50-years-old soon, I might as

well keep going while I am still

standing and don’t have many

injuries,” said Mrs Penn. Back

in October, the pair ran in the

Pegasus Fun Run 6km event and

hope to run the 10km event at the

Christchurch Marathon in June.

They are both driven by the hope

that one day they might have

grandchildren, who they would

like to be fit and healthy for. “It’s

more about getting out there and

enjoying it. I am really looking

forward to spending some time

with my brother, it’s good to hang

out,” Mrs Penn.

Roger

Comber, 70 –

Back in his youth,

Mr Comber

took part in two

half-marathons

in Ashburton and

Roger Timaru. Now

Comber retired from his

job as an english teacher, he said

he has decided to get back into

around the streets near where he

lives and often goes to Les Mills

gym to stay in shape. “I like the

City2Surf because it is an easy

distance and it’s a popular run.”

Summer Range Instore

James Ferguson, 32 –

Mr Ferguson will take on the

14km event in the City2Surf.

It will be his first time doing

the event and he admits he’s a

“first-time runner,” opting to

keep fit through rugby and other

sport. The event will help him

prepare for more running later

in the year when he takes on

the Buller Gorge half marathon

and the Saint Clair Vineyard

half marathon in Blenheim.

He is enjoying his training –

somewhat. “It’s a fair distance

the 14km, but I’ve got to get

fit somehow.”

Before and after

work a couple

of times a week,

Mr Ferguson has

been challenging

himself to

Pauline De Wit, 66 – Mrs

anytime soon. Previously, she

has run the 6km event in the

City2Surf but next month she

decided to “push the boat out”

and do the 14km run. “I felt

I could have gone further so

I am keen to try the 14km. I

Promising Hornets chase NRL dreams

• By Gordon Findlater

THREE PROMISING young

Halswell Hornets have shifted to

Sydney in pursuit of their NRL

dreams.

Reuben Wilson, David Knight

and Montell Peppard all made

strong impressions during trials

with Wests Tigers

late last year and

will now spend

the year in Sydney

among the club’s

feeder ranks.

Knight, 17, has

been named in

the Tigers Laurie

Daley Cup squad,

while Peppard, 17,

has been named

in the Western

Suburbs Magpies

SG Ball squad.

Wilson, 18, has

joined the Ryde

Eastwood Hawks

– a feeder club for

the Tigers.

“If we can open the door for

a young boy from Christchurch

or the South Island, it’s a big

plus towards the pathway,” said

former Hornets president Jeff

Whittaker.

Reuben Wilson

“The big plus for these boys

is that they’re now in an NRL

environment.”

Wilson – a fullback and

hooker – earned a number of

appearances for the Hornets’

premier side last season. His

father Walter Wilson is a former

Halswell, Canterbury and New

Zealand agegroup

player,

and has coached

the boys at the

Hornets.

He has joined

his son in Sydney

to support him

on his journey.

“Reuben

had two trials

with the Tigers

last year. They

said he would

be strongly

considered for

their under-20s

if he was in

Sydney. That was

the catapult for us to make the

move,” said Walter.

Peppard – a back rower – only

started playing league last year

after previously playing rugby

at St Thomas of Canterbury

College.

SPORTS

“Jeff [Whittaker] and I sat

down with him and his parents

and had a good chat about what

opportunity rugby league could

have for him,” said Walter.

“He’s a strong physical player

and has a great attitude.”

Knight, who is a back rower,

was introduced to league as a

12-year-old and has made his

way through the junior ranks at

the Hornets.

Knight and Peppard will

attend secondary school in

Sydney, while Wilson – who

recently finished at Christchurch

Boys’ High School – is doing

landscaping work in the

morning and training with his

club in the evening.

STARS: David Knight and

Montell Peppard have

relocated to Sydney,

along with Reuben Wilson,

following a successful trial

with Wests Tigers.

Halswell club softballer

takes skills to the max

• By Jacob Page

MAX SARGEANT (left) is

turning the skills he learnt in

his backyard into a promising

softball career.

The 14-year-old Halswell

Softball Club player was part of

the Canterbury under-15 infield

which went undefeated at the

national championships.

He was named in the Rest

of New Zealand tournament

team, and will also trial for the

development Black Sox later in

the summer, which could lead to

a tour of Australia this year.

Max can play any infield

position but prefers second base

or short stop.

“I like how you get a lot of

balls coming your way and

you’re always in the action,” he

said.

Max has been playing softball

since he was five and has

practiced his technique in

the backyard with his dad

Peter.

He has a family pedigree with

his uncle, Michael Sands, being

a former Black Sox player in the

early 2000s.

Max also plays premier

reserves, under-23s and under-

18s for Halswell, meaning he

often has three games a week.

“It’s playing against big people

which has been difficult, but

it’s been a learning year and,

hopefully, I can put those skills

into my 18s game.

“I’d like to make the

Canterbury under-18s and keep

moving up to national squads.”

Max said he would love to

emulate his uncle and become a

second generation Black Sox.

He also wants to play at college

level overseas.

But for now, Max is just

motivated to get better.

ADVERTORIAL

“We’re a little community… we are a family”

It’s a happy community at

Ryman Healthcare’s Margaret

Stoddart Retirement Village.

Village Manager Merrin

Jack says it’s the little things

that make the difference.

The boutique village

tucked away in the heart of

Christchurch is a beacon

of light, and because of its

size Merrin says that she

has the time to get to

know everyone.

Before Merrin took the reins

as village manager at Margaret

Stoddart, she was assistant

manager at Ryman’s Rowena

Jackson village in Invercargill,

which is a much bigger village.

“As soon as you walk

through the door here at

Margaret Stoddart you get

this nice feeling, a happy

feeling. It’s the light I think,”

Merrin says, gesturing to the

windows overlooking the inner

courtyard garden.

“For the residents and their

families it is quite important

that they know me. They feel

comfortable that they can just

come in and talk to me.

“The staff feel the same

way. And as a manager it

is important that my door

is open to staff and

residents both.”

For Merrin, communication

is the key part of being a

successful manager.

“I talk to my residents and

I talk to my staff. I know it

sounds cliché but being kind

is important and I push that

with everyone.

“The reason I like working

for Ryman is that it is a genuine

company. They genuinely

care about taking good care

of people.

“Everybody here is passionate

about what they do. Carers are

passionate about caring for

people and the housekeepers

are passionate about keeping

the place spotless. And that’s

what it’s all about.”

The village is located in

Riccarton and although it

is close to Hagley Park, the

Riccarton shops, and the city

centre, it is tucked away in an

idyllic, quiet corner.

“While you are at the village

you would never know of the

busy surroundings. It gives

you the advantage of both

worlds,” says Merrin.

The village features

independent townhouses,

serviced apartments and a

resthome set in beautifully

landscaped gardens.

Residents can participate

in indoor bowls, events and

outings, read at the library,

go to the hair salon or enjoy

a meal with other residents in

the dining room.

For Janice Wisker, a

resthome resident, the

boutique, homely feel of the

village was what made her

decide to stay.

“I was unwell and came here

for respite care, and after six

weeks I decided this was it,”

says Janice.

She loves the fact that she is

close to everything.

“I walked to the Riccarton

shops the other day,”

she enthused.

Janice says her family is also

Resident Janice Wisker and Village Manager Merrin Jack

very happy that she is happy at

the village. “I truly like being

at Margaret Stoddart. I really

enjoyed meeting the staff and

fellow residents. I like good

company and have already

made friends.”

Janice also likes the fact

that the residents get involved

at the village. They attend

shows and events together and

this has brought them closer

together.

Independent residents help

out with activities at the village

and even put on shows for the

care residents.

One such show was a

Cinderella Pantomime that

was extremely popular with

the audience.

Merrin says all this helps to

shape Margaret Stoddart into

the community that it is.

“We’re a little community,

and we reect back to the

bigger community. We are

a family.”

shapes the heart of

your retirement

KIDSTUFF

Cathedral Grammar Pre-School

located within the heart of the city

Our play based learning

approach supports your child

as they begin their exciting

journey as a lifelong learner.

Play, laughter and learning are essential

ingredients for a successful Pre-School

education. The crucial early years need to

be nurtured, shaped and cherished as your

child takes their first steps in education.

Cathedral Grammar Pre-School proudly

teaches the children of tomorrow, today.

At Cathedral Grammar Pre-School your

whole family is welcomed into the wider

embrace of the Grammar community

including whole school fun and functions,

services and support as well as smooth

transition to the Junior School and links to

the Prep School.

In Cathedral Grammar’s purpose built

Pre-School, taught by qualified teachers,

your child will discover by curiosity,

investigation and exploration. Our low

child/teacher ratios, ensure your child’s

quality individual and group learning.

Research states that play may be the

single most important things that humans

do. “Our play based learning approach

supports your child as they begin their

exciting journey as a lifelong learner” says

Principal Scott Thelning.

Your child will develop essential

foundations in literacy and numeracy. He

or she will enjoy the benefits of specialised

facilities, subjects and staff including Art,

Physical Education, Yoga and Chapel.

When children feel good about

themselves and their abilities, they are able

to take flight and explore, discover, take

risks and play, laugh and learn effectively

and successfully. “Self-esteem is at the core

of this development process” Thelning

says.

Being an inner city Pre-School gives

you a wonderfully easy opportunity to

engage in your child’s learning if you are

working in the CBD. Every opportunity

is taken to utilise our central city location

to extend our ‘campus’ from the Botanic

Gardens to the Canterbury Museum,

The Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o

Waiwhetu to the Christchurch Transitional

Cathedral, from Tūranga (Christchurch

central library) to the emergency services.

Every day is an open day at Cathedral

Grammar Pre-School. Contact the

school office to arrange a personal tour

on 03 365 0385. Email Scott Thelning at

By now, landlords, property managers

and most tenants will be aware of the

changes to the Residential Tenancy Act

concerning home insulation, requiring all

rental properties to have adequate ceiling

and under floor insulation installed, where

practicable, by 30 June 2019.

However, many landlords and property

managers may not be aware they could be

liable for a $4,000 fine (per non-compliant

property), payable to the tenants, if their

investment properties do not meet the

standard in time. With an estimated 125,000

rental properties still requiring better

insulation, these owners and property

managers are being urged to take action now

to avoid the impending rush.

Local long-established insulation specialists

EnergySmart are a selected service

provider for the government’s EECA (Energy

Efficiency and Conservation Authority)

insulation programme, and currently offer

both landlords and homeowners great

savings to better insulate their properties.

The company offers free property

assessments with an insulation Compliance

Certificate for the property if the existing

insulation already complies. If insulation

is required, they provide a Compliance

Report and quote to complete the work.

Extended home energy assessments are

also available, covering heat pumps and LED

lights if required.

EnergySmart are one of the largest

manufacturers and installers of insulation

products in New Zealand and supply a

range of home solutions including their

own insulation brands Terra Lana wool and

PolyKing polyester, as well as supplying Pink

Batts fibreglass insulation. All carry a 50

year warranty.

Their installers are fully trained, clean

and tidy, and their work is audited both

internally as well as by the government, so

you are assured of the highest standard of

workmanship.

EnergySmart has easy payment options

including no deposit and 36 months

interest free, meaning you can insulate your

property from only $12 per week. Landlords

can insulate now, take advantage of current

discounts, and beat the rush.

While insulation in rental properties is now

a legal requirement for landlords, they will

also have the satisfaction of knowing their

tenants are living in a warmer healthier, more

energy-efficient home, and consequently

are more likely to stay.

To enquire about a free property

assessment and insulation options,

contact EnergySmart.
