Kyle Park

vote

looms

today

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

COMMUNITY board members

will vote in favour of reclassifying

part of Kyle Park which will help

pave the way for the Hornby mega

facility to be built there.

Vicki Buck, Anne Galloway,

Jimmy Chen and Natalie Bryden

told Western News they are in

favour of the reclassification.

The Hornby-Halswell-Riccarton

If the reclassification of the park

then go to the city council

But board chairman Mike Mora

and member Ross McFarlane

refused to show their hand before

today’s meeting.

Said Mr Mora: “If anybody is

saying before the matter is being

moved and seconded and debated

they are actually out of line.”

Mr McFarlane said it would

“prejudice process if I was to comment”

before the meeting.

Board deputy chairwoman

ANOTHER STEP in the long winded

Hornby mega centre saga happens today.

The Hornby-Halswell-Riccarton Community

Board votes over whether to

reclassify Kyle Park. If that happens the

city council then makes the full decision on its reclassification,

which effectively would pave way for the mega centre to be built

there.

Like Denton Park, now no longer an option for the site, there

are those for and against Kyle Park.

Western News reporter Georgia O’Connor-Harding canvassed

the nine community board members to see how they would

vote today.

Four responded and two of those said they wouldn’t disclose

their views until today’s meeting. No word from the other three.

Halswell bottle store plan shelved

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A LIQUOR company has pulled

its plan to open an off-licence

store in Halswell’s Ensign St.

Bottle-O Halswell Ltd

director and shareholder Wendy

Gibbons told Western News it

has cancelled its contract to

purchase a shop in The Oaks

Village Halswell complex.

The company was granted

an application

to open an offlicence

liquor

store at 29 Ensign

St in December.

However,

the Halswell

Residents’

John

Bennett

Association

appealed the

decision to

the Alcohol Regulatory and

Licensing Authority last month.

The application made by

Mrs Gibbons and her husband,

Richard, received 37 objections

along with five petitions

containing 32 signatures in

opposition to the store.

City council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston said

the alcohol licensing team has

had no formal communication

that the application has been

withdrawn. “The application

remains under appeal unless

formally withdrawn by the

applicant,” she said.

The Oaks Village Halswell

developer Roger Bridge would

not comment on whether the

contract to purchase the bottle

store has been cancelled.

Residents’ association

chairman John Bennett

described the news as “a bolt of

lightning.”

He said it was getting

organised for the appeal but the

hearing wasn’t until late May.

“The community was

definitely not in favour of the

bottle store. If that is the case

they will be very happy,” Mr

Bennett said.

Mrs Gibbons said if the

application had proceeded

she would have appealed the

opening hours of 9am-11pm

daily. Mrs Gibbons said it

was very satisfying to see the

application was granted, and

HALT:

Bottle-O

has

decided

not to

open at

the The

Oaks

Village

Halswell

complex.

the initial licence and ruling

acknowledged they are good

operators. The decision granting

the application said Mr and Mrs

Gibbons had the experience to

safely sell alcohol.

“The information we received

from a notable solicitor said

that the majority of problems

presented into evidence were

related to an on-licence and The

Quarry Bar & Bistro, not an offlicence,”

she said.

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

TEMPLETON FIRES

KiwiRail’s investigation into a

series of vegetation fires around

Templeton earlier this month

shows they were likely caused by

a train. KiwiRail has apologised

for the impact of the fires and is

taking steps to reduce the risk.

This will include identifying and

preventing vegetation fires near

train tracks, limiting the power

of locomotives, lowering speeds

and dampening areas beside the

train tracks.

DRIVEWAY SAFETY

Non-for-profit organisation

Parent to Parent is launching an

in the driveway. A workshop

will be held at Bunnings from

10am-2pm in which people can

decorate a free paving stone.

OVER THE LAST couple of

The EcoShop on Blenheim

over the weekends with young

people buying up second-hand

mattresses and used furniture.

The kitchen utensils and

moving into our rather diverse

community for the start of the

academic year.

As a community, we would

like to extend a warm welcome

to our new neighbours who have

decided to make Riccarton their

home away from home.

There are plenty of

opportunities for new

residents to connect with their

neighbours.

They are welcome to join us at

the Riccarton Neighbourhood

Support Group meetings.

The meetings are held at 6pm

every first Wednesday of the

month at the Riccarton Baptist

Church, 80 Rattray St.

Go along and listen to the

invited speakers talk on a

variety of topics of interest to

the community and make some

new friends. Take a plate to share

with the community.

Last year, the neighbourhood

support group became the

caretaker of a mini-birdhouse

cabinet structure which holds

donated books for everyone in

the community to borrow.

The structure was built and

installed as part of a course

project undertaken by a group of

Canterbury University students.

The neighbourhood also has a

community garden and

pantry which is always in

need of volunteers to help out.

Through the years, we have also

had students helping out at the

garden.

All residents are welcome to

participate in the community

activities being organised

throughout the year.

Community Newsletter lists the

various activities and happenings

in the neighbourhood.

Readers respond to an

article about a planned

upgrade of the Middleton,

Ilam and Riccarton Rds

intersection, the fourth

most dangerous in the city

Dave Young – It’s not

rocket science, they have only

to set up the intersection as two

T-intersections with their own

traffic light phases, not the stupid

phases they have there at present.

One phase for Middleton Rd.

Then a phase for Riccarton Rd

then a third phase for the other

street and do away with the lefthand

free turn.

Sarah Smith – It’s the one I

avoid – can’t avoid my local one,

Marshland/Briggs/Lake Terrace

Rds intersection, though. It’s a

pretty bad one that needs green

arrows on all sides.

Fiona Ward – Surely it would

be easier and more effective to

alter the light sequences so that

each direction has a “right-turn

arrow” phase. There are so

many tricky/busy intersections

in Christchurch that don’t have

them and need them. It makes

no sense.

Holly Traxler-Puddle

– This is a very confusing and

tough intersection because

the roads don’t come to a

pronounced four-corner

intersection. That yellow road

sign on the far left should

actually be painted on the road

too.

Mandy Paget – So it’s not

the intersection, it’s the drivers?

Dimity Church – It’s an easy

one, no right-hand turns all

done.

Arleen Campbell – Hate

this intersection, so dangerous.

Jane Hughey – Oh well, it’s

okay, they will just keep putting

in more traffic lights, where

they aren’t needed and more

accidents will keep happening at

dangerous intersections.

Heather Wilkins – This

intersection has been like this

since I can remember and I’m in

my 60s now. You were just a bit

more cautious when you

went through it. Give way or

stop signs were worse.

Mary Jean – Very poorly

designed intersection.

Glyn Owen – Sit a police

car there for a while, or even a

cardboard cut out one.

Barry Clarke – If they have

green right turning arrows that

would make it safer.

Vicki Bennie – About time.

Jacque Skinner – Seriously?

How can they say this is a

dangerous intersection when it

is green and you have a space –

not rocket science. Try driving

through or across the Breens/

Harewood/Gardiners Rds

intersection at busy times of the

day with no lights where there

are constant fender-benders

and nasty accidents, plus kids

getting clipped by cars. That’s a

dangerous intersection.

Alison Westrupp – A

roundabout?

Pam Dench – Just change

the light phases. Simple fix,

not millions of dollars on an

upgrade.

Carlos Capinpin – Really

bad, I’m avoiding that

Middlleton-Ilam way, so

confusing.

Kathryn Macgregor

– Needs a roundabout by looks.

Mel Sherwood – This is the

worst intersection ever, I live right

by it and we were saying yesterday

something needs to be done.

Community groups in online spat

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SPAT HAS broken out

between two Facebook

community pages in Halswell.

Resident Greig Russell has hit

out at the administrators of the

Halswell Community Group

page for being “ousted” from

the group of

nearly 11,000

members for

speaking his

mind.

He was

removed from

the page when

he posted a

Chrys Horn

mobile phone

number online.

Mr Russell since set up a new

page called Halswell Community

Page Uncensored with a

catchphrase of #LETSMAKE-

HALSWELLGREATAGAIN

“They ousted me out of the

community. Short of pitchforks

and tiki torches that is what they

have done,” he said.

Mr Russell was returning

home from a fishing trip in Greta

Valley when he came across a

group of men stranded due to

having a flat tyre. He lent the

men his spare wheel to enable

them to get home and got one of

their mobile numbers. Mr Russell

said the men had promised

to return the spare wheel the

next day, but nothing eventuated

and they would not return

his phone calls and blocked his

number. To pressure the man, he

asked members of the Halswell

Community Group to phone the

number and ask for the wheel’s

return. It was returned after

about a week.

But Halswell Community Project

chairwoman and one of the

administrators Chrys Horn said

it was harassment and would not

be tolerated.

“The trouble is people put up

stuff and they make allegations.

We have had quite a few times

that has happened and the poor

person on the receiving end has

no idea what was going on”.

But Mr Russell responded

saying it “absolutely” was not

harassment. He said he did

something about his wheel being

stolen and he got a result.

“Someone was trying to rip

me off. You put yourself in my

situation. You have got a phone

number that is all you have got.

What are you meant to do if they

block you?”

He said there is no consistency

in the Halswell Community

Group rules and if posts up not

up to their dictation they will

shut it down.

But Dr Horn said it is the

Halswell Community Project’s

page and it has clear rules people

need to follow.

“If people step outside those

and they don’t take no or an

answer then we block them and

that is just the way the world

works.

“Dr Horn said it is a large

group to monitor and because

the administrators have a lot

going on in their lives, they do

not always catch posts breaking

their rules right away. The group

has a wide range of policies

including group members being

unable to advertise businesses,

abuse or make racial comments,

complain about organisations

or make posts containing sexual

references or innuendo. On the

Halswell Community Page Uncensored

Mr Russell said as long

as people “keep it civil” they will

not get shut down.

Dr Horn said the group doesn’t

bare many grudges and she

would like to reinstate Mr Russell

when things settle down and

if the other administrators agree.

But she said several of the

administrators on the Halswell

Community Group have been

blocked from the Halswell

Owner sees thief stealing tools from van

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A THIEF WAS seen attempting

to steal tools from a work van in

Halswell.

Electro-Tech Services owner

Stephen Walker was driving to his

Aidanfield home in another vehicle

when he spotted a man inside

his work van.

The man had broken into the

van through the side window.

Mr Walker pulled up outside

his property as the man began to

walk down the driveway towards

the street, holding two tool cases.

One tool kit contained electrical

hand tools while the other was

a drill and battery kit. The tool

kits were worth several thousand

dollars together, Mr Walker said.

Mr Walker then confronted the

thief.

“I pulled over and wound down

the window and said: ‘Hey mate,

best you put that back and we will

call it quits’,’’ he said.

The man then turned around

and placed the tool kits beside the

van.

The man then walked out of the

driveway past Mr Walker’s car.

As he walked past, Mr Walker

pulled out his camera and told

the thief to “smile for the camera”.

“He then put his hands over his

head and ran past me at a

million miles an hour,” Mr

Walker said.

Mr Walker then called the police

and began to follow the man

before losing him.

Mr Walker drove around a couple

of streets looking for the man

before police told him to return

to his home.

The incident took place on

February 16 at about 2pm.

A police spokeswoman said

inquiries were conducted at

the time but did not locate the

man.

Mr Walker said police responded

“really quickly” which

was good.

Inquiries are ongoing.

Riccarton Rd plants

given new home

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PLANTS WHICH otherwise would have

been sent to the dump have been given a

new home in Riccarton.

Creeping rosemary, agapanthus, hebes

and ​coleonema were removed from

Riccarton Rd last week as part of major

road works which started this month.

Eighteen planters were taken

out to enable space for one

lane of traffic in each direction

on Riccarton Rd during the

construction period.

But instead of being left to die,

the plants which could be saved

were transplanted to garden

beds at the Rata St and Straven

Rd intersection last week.

Riccarton Bush-Kilmarnock

Residents’ Association member

Lyndon Telfer wrote to the city council

last month, asking if the plants could be

placed in other gardens.

Association chairman Tony Simons

said it was good to know the city council

is thinking about conserving plants.

“We don’t like seeing things dumped so

we are really pleased the city council did

that,” he said.

The roadworks involve upgrading

damaged underground pipes and

•From page 1

The board will also make a

recommendation on the city council

going out for public consultation to allow

the Kyle Park Management Plan 1993 to

be updated.

The key objective for changing the plan

is to enable a community facility to be

accommodated on the eastern end of Kyle

Park.

Currently the

management plan does

not allow for a community

facility.

Cr Buck said she is really

keen to “keep the pace

going” and get the Hornby

facility established.

“We have gone through

all the options – this is the

quickest, fastest one and

the one I think has the

most community support,”

she said.

If the partial reserve

reclassification and

management plan changes

do not go ahead there

would be further delays as

an investigation would be required to find

another suitable site, a city council report

said.

It may also result in higher construction

costs due to inflation and a lower scope to

be able to be delivered for the budget.

Said Cr Galloway: “It is time to let

the community know we want the best

for them and provide a facility that will

encourage education and learning as well

as physical activity.

Cr Buck said her only concern was she

may not be able to get to the meeting due

to another commitment.

rebuilding the road to accommodate bus

priority measures.

The area has faced issues in the past

with plants along Rimu and Titoki Sts

being squashed by vehicles parking for

the Christchurch Farmers’ Market on

Saturday mornings.

Mr Simons said while it is still an issue,

the city council has made improvements

by putting bark chips on the

gardens.

It has also been placing road

cones around the gardens on

Saturday mornings to prevent

cars parking on the flower beds.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton

said she brought the issue of

cars parking on Rimu and

Titoki Sts to the city council in

June.

She suggested bollards be placed

around the gardens.

Mr Simons supported this idea and

said the road cones are “not particularly

attractive.”

But city council planning and delivery

transport manager Lynette Ellis said the

safety of road users and the costs need

to be considered before any solutions are

finalised.

Kyle Park vote looms

CHOSEN SITE: Strong support

has been given by members of

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board to allow Kyle Park

to be reclassified for the construction

of the Hornby mega-facility.

of Denton Park was discussed, the

community board decided not to proceed

with using the park for the facility on the

recommendation of a city council panel.

The park was turned down as the site

for the facility after strong opposition

from residents.

Former Save Denton Park chairman

Mark Peters said he imagined the

reclassification should go fairly

unopposed.

“I am more than happy to see this

proceed as soon as to get it sorted,” he

said.

Exploring Antarctica by sea

INSPIRED: Georgina Archibald training for her Antarctic

kayaking expedition next month.

A CHRISTCHURCH woman is

about to head to Antarctica to

kayak with an Olympian – all in

the name of inspiring others to

get out and explore.

Ara Institute of Canterbury

learning adviser Georgina Archibald,

29, is one of five young

people selected to take part in

the Antarctic Heritage Trust’s

Inspiring Explorers Expedition.

“This will certainly be the

greatest outdoor adventure I’ve

ever undertaken, so I’m thrilled

to have been selected,” said Miss

Archibald.

Next month Miss Archibald

and the expedition team – including

Olympic slalom canoeist

Mike Dawson – will travel to the

Antarctic Peninsula via South

America on a One Oceans Expeditions

vessel.

Once in Antarctica, they will

have the opportunity to explore

the region in kayaks with help

from guides and Dawson.

“Going to Antarctica is incredible

but being able to kayak there

will be even more amazing . . .

it means we’ll be able to get up

close to the landscape and wildlife,”

said Miss Archibald.

As she counts down to

the trip, her focus is on

training and ensuring

she has the right gear.

“I’ve been enjoying

kayaking around Banks

Peninsula over the

summer. However, the

warm temperatures have

been very different to

the polar conditions in

Antarctica, and one of

the expedition’s biggest

challenges will be managing

the extreme cold while kayaking

– ideally I’ll get my layering

techniques right.”

As a self-described storyteller,

Miss Archibald was drawn to

the nature of the expedition,

which combines the chance to

Georgina

Archibald

experience new landscapes and

wildlife. On her return, Miss Archibald

will share her story with

the Pasifika community, schools,

tertiary institutions and community

organisations.

“My message will be

focused on what an

incredible world we

live in and to make

the most of being able

to get out there and

explore it. Adventures,

big or small, local or

further afield, are what

opens our eyes and

make us appreciate

life.”

Antarctic Heritage

Trust executive director Nigel

Watson will lead the expedition,

saying it will be an unforgettable

experience. “We have an

incredible team on board this

year. We can’t wait to share this

journey as Antarctica has the

power to change lives.”

Garden award haul

•From page 1

The trophy is the competition’s

premier award and it won the

Howman Cup for outstanding

flats and townhouse gardens in a

retirement village.

The village came first place in

the rest and retirement homes

category of the competition,

earning them the Peter Lawrence

Challenge Trophy.

Individual village residents also

received a second and third prize

in the Howman Cup category

and the association awarded all

residents located on the village’s

street frontage a gardening certificate.

“Lots and lots” of hours have

gone into the garden – which is

cared for by Miss Holmes and

part-time gardener Amanda

Riordan.

“We both have a passion for

our work and we put our heart

and soul in the garden,” Miss

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

Holmes said. The garden, which

was first planted by the village’s

former gardener Linda Rollo in

2010 features a range of plants

including rhododendrons, camellias,

lavenders and roses.

Mrs Rollo, who retired in late

2016, said a lot of the garden

has changed since the original

planting and it is “just a beautiful

village” now.

She said the key is to never give

up and put in “lots of hard work.”

Tasty Middle Eastern takeaways

a popular choice in Halswell

Now firmly established as one of

Halswell’s most popular takeaway food

outlets, Souvlaki King offers an extensive

range of authentic Middle Eastern food

that’s fresh, healthy and delicious.

In the last few weeks they have introduced

two new items to the menu, offering even

more choice for customers. These are the $11

Snack Box, which comprises scrumptious

hot chips with lamb, beef, chicken, falafel

or mixed, topped with cheese and barbeque

sauce or your choice of chili sauce, and the

traditional Shawarma, which is a roll filled

with meat, vegetarian falafel or feta cheese,

and topped with barbeque or your choice

of chili sauce. This is also $11, or $14 with

hot chips.

Both these items are proving very popular

for lunch, the business owners say.

The souvlakis are available in three

portion sizes – small, large or triple, with

a choice of chicken, lamb, beef, kofta or

falafel and served with coleslaw, lettuce,

tzatziki, hummus and your choice of chili

or barbeque sauce.

All ingredients used at

Souvlaki King are sourced

locally to ensure freshness and

quality, including the meats,

which are supplied by the local

butchery.

The falafel is freshly prepared

every day to their own secret recipe,

and is another very popular item,

even for non-vegetarian customers,

and all the salads and sauces are

prepared on the premises every day.

For a sweet taste, they offer the traditional

baklava, and cake slices,

while beverages

include a selection

of coffees, teas, hot

chocolate, milk shakes

and thick shakes.

Souvlaki King has just

launched its website, www.

souvlakiking.nz, so you can

now order online and your

food will be ready to pick up

and pay for when you arrive.

You can also order by phone,

(03) 322-4888. Pre-ordering is

especially recommended on the

busy Friday and Saturday nights.

Bangladesh tour for teen

CALL-UP: Caius Faatili is one of four St Thomas’ students to

make an age group NZ residents squad.

Four St Thomas students

selected for league squads

FOUR ST Thomas of

Canterbury College students and

a Hornby High School student

have been selected in the New

Zealand resident rugby league

16s and 18s squads.

Nikau Waikato, Jaedon Wellington,

Felix Fa’atilii and Caius

Fa’atili from St Thomas’ and Jordan

Coleman from Hornby have

been selected for the squads after

attending a talent development

programme held in Cambridge.

Felix Fa’atilii, Waikato and

Wellington have made the 16s

squad while Caius Fa’atili and

Coleman are selected in the 18s.

The camp saw 80 of the

best 16s and 18s players in

the country put through their

paces both on and off the

field at the three-day camp,

with everything they learnt

culminating in two trial matches

on the final day. The talent on

display left selectors with some

difficult decisions to make as

players battled it out in hopes of

catching the coaches’ eyes.

The squads will assemble on

during the school holidays on 15

April 15 and July 8, with a game

in October to be announced in

the coming months.

School’s Angus Sidey will get

his first taste of cricket in the

to Bangladesh with the New

The 16-year-old received a

phone call from NZ under-19

coach and former Canterbury

Fulton last week.

“It was pretty incredible really

. . . I was part of an emerging

players’ camp earlier in the year

but I had no idea I’d get the call

up,” said Sidey.

The right-arm pace bowler

is just one of three Canterbury

players named in the squad

along with St Andrew’s College

students Jesse Frew and Rhys

Mariu

The tour to Bangladesh will

be the New Zealand’s first series

in the lead up to the World Cup,

which will be played in South

Africa in January.

“It would be a bit of a dream

to make the World Cup team.

There will certainly be a bit of

pressure under the spotlight in

Bangladesh, but I wont let it get

to me,” said Sidey.

“It will be a interesting challenge

bowling in spin-friendly

conditions.”

The Bangladesh tour will start

with a 50-over warm-up game,

followed by five 50-over contests.

Of the opportunity to play

EXPERIENCE: Angus Sidey will get his first taste of cricket in

the sub continent when he travels to Bangladesh with the NZ

under-19 team in April. ​

Bangladesh, who recently

hosted the England under-19s,

Paul Wiseman, the former

Canterbury and Black Caps

spinner who is the programme

leader for the under-19s,

said: “We see this as purely

a wonderful opportunity; a

subcontinental tour that the

players will really benefit from.

I think we’ll learn a lot about

players over there.”

FEBRUARY 2018

Teaching and learning during construction

The redevelopment works will be carried out in such a way as to enable school business to continue as normal. Buildings will

be refurbished in sequence, with students decanted into spare classrooms. There will be three stages to the works.

Oaklands School

Project Update

Oaklands School is embarking on an exciting journey to transform our campus to meet our

vision for teaching and learning, now and into the future. This newsletter aims to inform and

update our school community on the redevelopment project. The proposed design transforms

Oaklands School, creating a new school entrance, with central courtyard surrounded by

administration, library and hall. The school’s teaching spaces will also be transformed into

new innovative learning environments.

Our vision

It is our goal to support and

nurture our students for their

unique strengths and talents at

Oaklands School.

We aim to meet individual learning

needs.

This can be seen in everything we do

from our flexible learning using an

inquiry approach, the opportunities

children have to learn in a wide range

of learning opportunities, extension/

enrichment programmes and strong

remedial programmes for those needing

targeted support.

Our CARE Values is a strong part of our

school culture in promoting life long

learners.

Innovative learning

environments

The world we are preparing our children

for is always changing.

Education needs to keep pace with this constant

evolution. Innovative learning environments are

capable of adapting as educational practice

evolves.

Innovative learning environments encourage

collaboration and inquiry for both children

and teachers. They allow the teacher to teach

in a range of styles and groups to best meet

the strengths and needs of a diverse group of

children.

The Ministry of Education has been very

supportive in working with the school to design

buildings that will support the constantly evolving

way of teaching and learning at Oaklands School.

We are Life Long

Learners who Aspire to

Excellence

We believe that learning is effective and

successful when:

• Learners experience success

• Meaningful relationships are built and

maintained

• We are connected collaboratively

• We know the learner

• We are all learning to learn in

authentic and purposeful contexts

• We approach learning with a growth

mindset

We have worked really hard

preparing for our redevelopment and

will keep focused on teaching and

learning throughout the project. So

much work has taken place during

the planning stages to ensure our

learning environments with

complement our excellent teaching

practices.

“Our redevelopment will involve the

demolition of 11 school buildings,

refurbishment of six buildings,

including the hall, as well as the

construction of three new buildings”,

The school will remain operational

during the redevelopment which is

expected to be completed by August

2020.

Margaret Trotter, Principal

Central Courtyard

Health and safety during

construction

The new buildings will comply to 100% new building standards.

Safety of students, staff and the public has priority during

construction.

Health and safety plans will be put in place prior to any work

proceeding on site, and will be actively managed throughout the

construction period.

Construction zones will be in place during construction, with no

access available for students, staff, or the general public.

Feneon chases US basketball dream

• By Gordon Findlater

PROMISING basketballer Kurt

Feneon is looking to take his

game to the next level now he

has finished his final year at

Christchurch Boys’ High School.

Feneon, 18, trains twice a

day, five times a week with

the Canterbury Rams as he

pursues a United States college

scholarship.

The forward/guard has

adjusted his game since finishing

high school. At 198cm, Feneon

was predominantly used at

centre due to being the tallest

player in his team. However,

he is now concentrating on his

game as a wing player.

“I could always dribble and do

what you need to as a guard, but

I never did because I played as a

big,” said Feneon.

Those skills were on show

this month when he travelled to

Melbourne with the Canterbury

Knights as part of a six-game

tour. Feneon shot 7/14 threepointers

for the team, which

contained a number of current

and former Canterbury Rams.

“I was always a good midrange

shooter, but I’ve really

been working on my three-point

shooting.”

He’s hopeful that form will

translate into a US college

scholarship.

Going to the US has been his

objective since he got serious

about basketball four years ago.

If it happens, he won’t be the first

DETERMINED: Kurt Feneon trains twice a day to improve his

in his family to make the

trip.

His father Remi from France

and mother Jolene from South

Africa met at the University

of Mississippi – known as Ole

Miss – while there on tennis

scholarships.

“They’ve always been

encouraging me on it because of

the great experiences they had

over there,” said Feneon.

Just like his parents and

sister Jade, who all play premier

inter-club tennis, he also played

the sport from a young age.

However, at 13 Feneon made the

switch to basketball.

“I was okay at tennis but I

never really loved it,” he said.

“I’ve found that winning with

a team is so much better than by

yourself.”

Feneon is now training

regularly with the Canterbury

Rams ahead of their NBL season.

He will head to Dunedin with

the Knights to play the Otago

Nuggets and Southland Sharks

next month.

“I’m just trying to make

sure I’m in the best shape I can

be. I’m just waiting for that call,”

he said.

While his ultimate goal

is to get to the NBA, he will

also have other professional

playing options in the Northern

Hemisphere if he can continue to

develop.

“I’ve got a French passport

because of my dad, so Europe is

another place I could play.”

Feneon was part of the

Canterbury team which won the

national under-19 title last year,

and has also attended a number

of New Zealand age group

camps.

Trio selected

for national

netball squad

QUANTELLE Hira-Kapua, Julia

Wynands and Olivia Burnham

have been selected in the New

Zealand Secondary School

netball squad.

Hira-Kapua from Hillmorton

High School and Wynands and

Burnham both from Villa Maria

College are the only three played

from the Mainland region to

gain selection into the 22-strong

squad following a three-day

national development camp in

Cambridge.

A NZSS team will be selected

from the squad by the end of

April.

NZSS head coach and panel

member Charissa Barham said

selectors had assessed performances

at the national development

camp, the ANZ Premiership

pre-season tournament

in Ōtaki along with various

secondary school tournaments

last year.

“It has been a thorough

process and we have had the opportunity

to look at a number of

players,” she said.

“There are some athletes who

were involved with the NZSS

team last year and plenty of new

faces who are pushing hard for

selection this year.”

Burnham is one of six players

in the squad from last year’s

NZSS team which competed in

Australia.

It’s our

Wellbeing & Beauty

The smile you deserve

Christchurch Denture Care may only

have been in the Garden City since

October last year, but the company behind

them has been providing the same great

service to denture wearers in the South

Island for almost 60 years.

Now the same terrific service that

has seen locals from as far afield as

Oamaru, Timaru and Twizel travel miles

to have dentures made and repaired is

available right here at 105 Wainui Street

in Riccarton. It is this expertise and

experience that means denture wearers

are in safe hands, and local girl Joanna is

thrilled to be sharing her skills as a clinical

dental technician with the people she grew

up alongside.

Joanna, along with owner Jenny Wang,

believes in going that extra mile for clients.

Both are graduates from the University

of Otago and fully qualified and highlyexperienced

dental technicians. They pride

themselves on terrific customer service.

However long it takes, they want their

clients to be happy with their decision and

with the final product. They will develop a

personalised treatment plan and provide

a free initial consultation, free polishing

for the lifetime of your dentures, and free

after-care service. For clients who live in

one of Christchurch’s rest homes, they will

come to you at no cost, and as part of their

community service, they run seminars to

educate nurses and caregivers on gum and

denture care.

They provide the full range of services

for denture wearers including making a

wide range of full and partial dentures

that are customised to fit comfortably in

the mouth and that look like a natural fit

with your existing smile. The dentures

can be conventional acrylic,

metal framed or flexible and

they will sit down with you to

discuss exactly what will work

best for you, your mouth and

your lifestyle. They will make

sure your dentures last as long

as possible, offering relines

and repairs. Their equipment

will soon be state-of-the-art

with 3D digital technology

on its way including a facial scanner and

a 3D printer. This will help cut down the

time spent waiting for dentures to be

manufactured and will provide a snugger

and more comfortable final fit.

On top of all that, they offer

mouthguards for sports people, snoreguards

for the partners of snorers, and

professional-quality teeth-whitening trays.

Call in and meet the friendly team

or telephone 03 341 2242 to book your

initial consultation and get the smile

you deserve.

REAL ESTATE

An unparalleled lifestyle in magical Moncks Bay

242 Main Road, Redcliffs - “As-Is, Where-Is”

Auction: Thursday, 14 March 2019 Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 living rooms | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number SM0166

Treasured by two generations and offering

a truly once in a lifetime opportunity, this

tantalizing home upon a 2853m2 section

enjoys an overwhelming tranquil setting and

is presented to the market on an uninsured

“as-is, where-is” basis.

Situated in the tightly held locale of magical

Moncks Bay, this property makes a memorable

first impression and was constructed in the

1960s but has naturally received extensive

modern enhancements including a Bruce

Banbury architectural renovation in 2004.

Resort-style serenity is provided by the

colourful Clivias as well as the established

greenery and palms trees that border the

swimming and spa pool, with the outstanding

views and majestic cliff face backdrop only

escalating the property’s visual appeal.

Spacious living areas are complemented

by the sizeable Kwila deck, water feature

and idyllic alfresco surroundings which

have previously hosted a wedding and could

continue to be the scene of many memorable

occasions.

Skylights, the superb use of timber, a

contemporary colour scheme and the

magnificent stone fireplaces create an

incredibly inviting ambience indoors where

you’ll find four double bedrooms, two

bathrooms and a relaxing sunroom area that

comes complete with a spa bath.

With an expansive lawn area and the

picturesque garden at the rear of the property

both epitomise peace and privacy and offer

access up to the top of the section where

you can sit and admire the ocean vistas over

Moncks Bay incorporating from Shag Rock

and right along the Pegasus Bay coastline.

This property can potentially be subdivided

which furthers your options and adds

another element of interest for buyers.

Ensconced in a private lane that sits across

from the waterfront, this property is also

positioned to enjoy the area’s celebrated

microclimate and is located within easy reach

of the beaches, boating facilities, Barnett

Park and the amenities in both Redcliffs and

Sumner.

With floors needing repiling and being sold

uninsured, deemed uneconomical to repair,

this unique “as-is, where-is” opportunity is a

real game changer with the feel good factor

and is guaranteed to attract attention. Your

earliest viewing is advised.

Open Homes: Wednesdays, Saturdays

and Sundays 1:00pm - 1:45pm.

See you at the open homes or for a private

viewing or for more information contact

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.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment 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.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has 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 to 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

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust 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

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

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

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community
