• By Jake Kenny

BISHOPDALE Village Mall

retailers say they are losing

business as they wait for a

long-promised mall upgrade.

The mall is more than 50-yearsold

and showing its age with tired

buildings and several empty shops

– and some business owners are

fed up.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

pledged $10,000 last December

to help redevelop the area

through ‘quick win’ cosmetic

improvements.

However, none of the $10,000

has been spent yet.

Work has yet to start and some

local business owners say the

improvements will do little to

solve the problem of falling foot

traffic.

Bishopdale Businesses

Association member Tony

Ralfe said the closure of the

Westpac branch and the move

of Mitre 10 to a nearby location

three years ago, along with New

World’s move to the far side of the

mall, meant more was needed to

help the remaining retailers.

THERE HAS been a lot of amazing gestures

and things done by the community as a

result of the terror tragedy.

So many, most can’t be given the public

credit they deserve.

But on page 1 today, we do showcase a

great effort at St Margaret’s College, led by student Sujean In.

She started the Paper Chain of Love and it has been added to

by students from around New Zealand and Australia – each link

with a message of support.

“It came from the idea that all of us students are connected and

that love is stronger than hate. Everyone in Christchurch is interlinked

and we share a love for each other in spite of the ugliness of

Friday,” she says.

How right she is.

Innes Rd bus stop battle lost

• By Jess Gibson

THE SUBMITTERS who

opposed the installation of four

bus stops along both sides of

Innes Rd have lost their battle.

A decision was passed by the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board on Friday to install the

bus stops on the road between

Severn and Mersey Sts and near

Nancy Ave.

The new bus stops are needed

for the Orbiter bus after its

route was changed due to

the Christchurch Northern

Corridor project.

The city council received 35

submissions when the public

were asked to give feedback on

four options for bus stops along

Innes Rd between Philpotts Rd

and Cranford St in February.

Only 13 were in favour of the

option chosen, which was the

city council’s preferred choice.

Twenty-one submissions

preferred option two, which was

to install a single set of bus stops

on Innes Rd near Ethne St.​

One respondent said they

preferred option two as option

one may pose a risk to the safety

of children, with St Francis of

Assisi School and Mairehau

Primary beside the proposed

stop near Nancy Ave.

favour of option three, which

was to install the bus stop at

a location other than those

in options one and two. One

submitter said they supported

option four, which was to do

nothing.

Feedback was also received

from Environment Canterbury

and Go Bus, which both stated a

preference for option one.

Similar concerns were raised

for options one and two,

including a loss of parking, bus

stops located over driveways,

hazards to motorists pulling out

of their driveways, an intrusion

had them before. “You are

never going to please everyone

when you install new bus stops.

However, we have to weigh up

the benefits to the community

as a whole when making these

decisions,” he said.

“Ensuring bus stops are

located within walkable

distance of as many members

of the community as possible is

essential in creating good public

transport outcomes,” he said.

There are currently interim

stops on Innes Rd near Ethne St,

which will operate until the new

bus stops are installed.

•From page 1

“Young people can often feel

lost as to what you can do when

this kind of thing happens.”

She started the Paper Chain of

Love and it has been added to by

students from around Christchurch,

New Zealand and Australia

– each link with a message of

support.

“It came from the idea that all

that love is stronger than hate

said.

“I wanted to create something

to represent that. What they did

was try and tear our city down,

like it was made of paper, but it’s

stronger than that.”

Her idea has taken off.

Students from St Andrew’s,

colleges, as well as Selwyn House,

Middleton Grange, Avonside

“Ten thousand dollars won’t

Mr Ralfe.

Development Christchurch Ltd

is in charge of the redevelopment,

working alongside the business

board.

A DCL spokesperson said

work to date had included

meetings with businesses and

landowners, shopper surveys,

and discussions with key

community groups.

DCL has also conducted

reviews of traffic, urban design,

land use, parking, pedestrian

access and lighting.

It confirmed that no further

the regeneration work.

“(That) would need to be done

through council’s Annual Plan

“The issue now is that DCL do

Five days to have say on $1m toilets

THE PUBLIC has five days to

have a say on the designs for

the toilet blocks at Roto Kohatu

Reserve which are set to cost $1

million.

The plans are for two separate

toilet blocks, which would

be installed at the popular

recreation site on Sawyers Arms

Rd.

There are currently only

portaloos at the site, which has a

high number of annual visitors

who use Lake Roto Kohatu

and Lake Rua for watersports,

swimming and picnics.

Each new block would have

two cubicles and an outside

shower. The cost is estimated at

$282,806 for each building and

$440,000 to connect them up to

services.

One block would be installed

beside the main car park and the

other at the canoe polo area.

The toilet blocks would

be brought to the site fully

constructed and then be

connected to the existing

infrastructure on Greywacke Rd.

HOTSPOT: An increase in visitors to Lake Rua and

Lake Roto Kohatu has led to plans for two new toilet

blocks.

(Left) – One of the designs for the new toilet blocks,

which would each have two cubicles and an outside

shower.

In February, city councillor

Aaron Keown said the high cost

for the toilets was necessary.

“It’s so expensive because it’s not

near a road and half the money is

just getting the services like the

fresh water and the electricity in,

which have to be in two different

trenches,” said Cr Keown.

“You can’t do a half-baked job

on toilets like this,” he said.

The toilet blocks were approved

by the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board in July after the city

council discovered visitors

were defecating in the bushes

surrounding the lake.

The city council is also

proposing a new 100-space

car park. Depending on the

outcome of the consultation,

the city council aims to have the

toilet blocks completed before

December.

Cost of QE II

facilities could

be slashed

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

A TOILET block and changing

facility at QE II Park will not cost

ratepayers $1 million.

Instead, city council staff are

investigating ways to cut back

the cost of the planned 200 sq m

building after a request from the

hearings panel.

Burwood Ward city councillor

and hearings panel chairman

Glenn Livingstone said he was

pleased with the result.

“The whole hearings panel

was very concerned over the

proposed $1 million cost for the

changing sheds and toilets and

was very clear over that,” he said.

Cr Livingstone previously

said a house could be built for

$350,000 so he couldn’t understand

why a toilet block would

cost almost triple that.

However, city council head

of recreation, sports and events

Nigel Cox said the $1 million

budgeted for the toilet and

changing room block had been

an estimate.

The building would have four

changing rooms with showers and

toilets, a referees’ changing room,

storage, public toilets, provision of

services and landscaping, including

paving, and vegetation.

Garden award for 94-year-old

MARIE McCormick has been

a member of the Christchurch

Beautifying Association since

she was in her late 20s.

At 94-years-old, she has

just received an award for the

garden at her Papanui home.

McCormick was

one of 93 people

Mrs McCormick is not able

Mrs Hughes said when

she goes around to work on the

garden, Mrs McCormick will

often point out piles of weeds

around the place.

said Mrs Hughes.

“I think that’s wonderful and

Venue offered for Anzac Day service

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Anzac Day ceremony in Upper

Wellbeing & Beauty

New centre provides

personalised weight

management solutions

In November 2018, Dr Jonie Girouard

and her husband Dr Michael Girouard,

opened The Girouard Centre in

Silverstream, Kaiapoi, dedicated to weight

management and wellness.

The couple came to New Zealand three

years ago from the United States, where

Dr Michael was one of the country’s

most experienced, leading bariatricians

and Dr Jonie practised as an obesity

specialist. Already managing six other

centres internationally via the internet,

they wanted to open a dedicated weight

management centre in the Christchurch

region, where they would treat people with

weight management issues on a completely

individual basis.

Dr Jonie has a particular interest in

lipoedema, a condition that affects around

11 per cent of the female population, but

is often confused with fibromyalgia and/or

obesity due to the lack of awareness of this

condition.

As she explains, lipoedema is a painful,

progressive condition that causes swelling

in the hips, buttock and legs, and as it is not

related to excess calorie intake it can’t be

treated with the usual dieting and exercise

regime.

“It is a complicated disease that often

develops in families, and if left untreated

it will progress, often leading to excess

body weight and obesity due to the lack of

exercise through decreased mobility,” she

says.

Patients with lipoedema seeking help at

the Girouard Centre are initially assessed

to determine family history and lifestyle

and are provided with basic knowledge

of lipoedema to help them understand

the condition. An individual tailored

programme covering meal planning and

appropriate exercise is provided, and

the patient is often referred to Burwood

Hospital for compression and lymphatic

manual drainage therapy.

“The services we offer are unique

in New Zealand,” Dr Jonie says.

The Girouard Centre offers nonsurgical

treatment for all types of

weight management problems,

with every person receiving an

individualised treatment plan

according to their needs, so they can

achieve their goals.

Personal goals may include reaching

their ideal weight, reducing their

cholesterol levels or preventing diabetes.

Avoiding the yo-yo weight gain and loss

that some people wrestle with is equally

important in weight maintenance and

optimal health, Dr Jonie says.

The centre is open for consultation

on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and

appointments can be made by calling

(03) 327 2273, or through The Girouard

Centre website or Facebook page. It Dr Michael and Dr Jonie

is located at Unit 6, 42 Silverstream Girouard, who have opened

Boulevard, Silverstream, Kaiapoi. their new centre in Silverstream

supervised, non-surgical weight management

How do we regain

what we lost?

Justice of the

peace and

Fendalton-

Waimairi-

Harewood

Community

Board

member

Shirish

Paranjape

reflects on the terror attack

During my overseas travels,

I would often say (boast?) that

New Zealand is one of the

most peaceful countries on

earth, police normally do not

carry arms and politicians and

other leaders are extremely

approachable.

They often drive their own cars

and travel economy class like all

New Zealanders do.

Only our prime minister has a

security person when in public.

My overseas friends would

confirm that they had heard

same/similar opinions about

New Zealand. Those who had

visited would recount good

memories of their visit.

One day, one person changed

it all.

The question now is, “how do

we regain what we lost?”

I feel we should not take any

knee-jerk reactions due to this

incident.

Even if changes are necessary,

for example, with the gun

control laws, they should be wellconsidered/well-discussed

and

debated decisions, rather than

“heat of the moment knee-jerk

reactions”.

There is no need to swing from

one end to the other, although

inevitably, a few things may need

to change.

I have been fortunate enough

to have travelled to many

countries all over the world.

Friends, family members and

colleagues often I ask me if I feel

safe in a particular country or

city, and how do I judge it.

My answer always is the less

police/security persons I see, the

safer I feel at any place and the

presence of families and children

in public area, particularly after

sunset, makes me feel safer at any

place.

Too much police/security

presence can be unnerving, as we

found out this week.

The presence of a police

helicopter circling over us had,

for many residents, exactly the

opposite effect than the desired.

The stated official purpose

was to provide assurance to the

community, but it’s presence had

many residents worried.

I recall a story from several

years back.

For a week, I had hosted guests

from the Middle East.

On the last day of the visit, they

said: “Shirish, you have done so

much for us, and shown us many

places here, but we have not seen

one thing at Christchurch.”

“What is that?,” I asked.

“In the whole week here, we

haven’t seen even one officer of

New Zealand Police,” was their

reply, being so used to police

presence back in their country.

I took them to Christchurch

Central Police Station, where

they not only saw an officer,

but the lovely officer smilingly

obliged and allowed the visitors

to take photos with him and his

police car.

This is the Christchurch, this

is the New Zealand we like, and

others envy.

Let us do everything we can,

individually and collectively, to

regain it.

I end this article with a poem

which my daughter Neha wrote

and sent from London, where

she is undergoing her two-year

overseas experience.

To Christchurch and its people,

Too many innocent lives lost

Too many prayers left unanswered

Too many people hurt

Too many dreams shattered

Too much hate in the world

Just too much anger

How did it come to this?

Is all of the world now in danger?

The people of Christchurch, we

like our red and black

But not the red that comes with

blood stains

Not the black that accompanies a

terror attack

Christchurch will be back up

though,

Once again rising from the ashes

Once again, our people will find

that smile

After we’ve wiped tears off each

other’s eyelashes

Christchurch is my home, as it is

yours

I hope you all feel safe again,

albeit with horrific scars

I wish for this paradise to be

beautiful again

I hope you see your prayers

weren’t in vain

Teen kart driver off to Europe

CHRIST’S COLLEGE student

Jacob Douglas will make a little

bit of Kiwi karting history when

he lines up at the first round

of the FIA Karting Academy

Trophy series in Germany in

May.

Although more and more New

Zealand karters have been travelling

to Europe to compete in

recent years, Jacob, 13, is the first

to be invited by the FIA Karting

Academy to contest

its annual

trophy series.

“It’s acknowledgement,

if you

like, from the

very top people

in our sport,”

Jacob

said KartSport

New Zealand

president

Douglas

Graeme Moore.

“Drivers like Jacob are truly

world class, and that by being

able to produce drivers of his

obvious calibre, the sport here

must be in pretty good shape.”

In spite of his age, Jacob is

already a veteran of several trips

to Europe to race. The two-time

NZ Vortex Mini ROK champion

led a four-strong New Zealand

squad to its best finish yet at the

annual ROK Cup International

event in Italy in October last

year.

“It’s a big commitment,

particularly for a 13-year-old, but

it’s what Jacob wants to do so as a

family we are right behind him,”

BIG THINGS: Jacob Douglas (front) will become the first Kiwi

to compete in the FIA Karting Academy Trophy Series. PHOTO:

FAST COMPANY/UMBERTO FRAENKEL-SPORTINPHOTO

said his father Craig Douglas.

Having already proved he

can foot it with the best young

Vortex drivers in the world,

Jacob says his goal is to establish

himself in Europe and he

believes that this year’s threeround

series – in which up to

50 invited drivers use the same

model of OTK kart – is just the

stepping stone he needs.

“I am really proud that

Kartsport New Zealand is

supporting me,” said Jacob.

“It is a great series to introduce

me to European junior racing

and I am extremely excited to

continue where I left off last year

at the ROK Cup with Lennox

Racing. I am looking forward to

SPORT

doing New Zealand proud and

everybody who has helped take

to where I am today. I am also

fortunate that my KartSport

New Zealand academy coach,

Tiffany Hamilton, will be by my

side to help guide me through

the weekends when I am up

there. Tiff has lots of European

racing experience for me to draw

on.”

This year the series will be

contested over three rounds,

starting at Wackersdorf in

Germany in early May, before

heading to Italy for a second

round in June, then the third and

final in September.

Each year for the past nine

years, drivers representing what

FIA characterises as “the best

prospects between the ages of 12

and 14 from over 40 countries

around the world” have battled

it out in what effectively is a onemake

kart/engine/tyre series,

aimed at uncovering the next

Lewis Hamilton.

One former academy trophy

series winner whose name will

be familiar to fans is Toyota

Racing Series race and round

winner and 2018 series runnerup,

Richard Verschoor, of the

Netherlands, who won the

academy trophy in 2014.

In Brief

VOLLEYBALL CHAMPS

St Andrew’s College won

the Canterbury secondary

school senior girls volleyball

championships at Pioneer

Stadium, defeating St Margaret’s

College in the final. Burnside

High School finished third.

Meanwhile, the senior boys title

was won by Riccarton High

School, which defeated Shirley

Boys’ High School in the final.

BURNSIDE TENNIS TEEN

Burnside High School tennis

player Diego Quispe-Kim

has been selected in the New

Zealand team to play at the

ITF World Junior Tennis

competition in Kuala Lumpur,

Malaysia, from April 1-6.

The 13-year-old will team up

with Jack Chapman and Alex

Mirkov for the international

team competition for players

aged 14 and under. With more

than 100 countries represented

in the opening stages of the

competition, the New Zealand

team will look to book a spot at

the world finals later in the year.

SISTER SCHOOL RUGBY

St Bede’s College’s sister-school

Sapporo Yamanote from Japan

borrowed several St Bede’s

rugby players in order to play

against an under-18 selection.

Sapporo Yamanote won the

match. However, given the fact

that more than half of the 11

tries scored were by St Bede’s

players, both schools won in one

way or another.
