Plan to

control

quarry

dust with

water

criticised

• By Anan Zaki

WATER CANNONS and

carts could be used to control

dust emissions at Fulton

Hogan’s proposed quarry near

Templeton.

Details on dust and air

quality featured in a 54-page

document presented to

Environment Canterbury and

the Selwyn District Council last

week.

The information was provided

after the regional and district

councils requested more details

about Fulton Hogan’s plans to

quarry at a 170ha site bordered

by Curraghs, Dawsons, Jones

and Maddisons Rds.

Quarry opponent Simon

Moore said using water cannons

and carts would be a waste of

water.

Mr Moore is still against

the idea of a quarry near

Templeton.

“They are going to require a

huge amount of water to do that

[mitigate dust],” he said.

So many, most can’t be given the public

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

How right she is.

Venue offered for Anzac Day service

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RANNERDALE Veterans

Village has offered to hold an

Anzac Day ceremony in Upper

Riccarton due to the closure of a

historic library in the suburb.

The long-standing Anzac Day

service organised by the Upper

Riccarton Memorial Library

committee will not go ahead.

Rannerdale Veterans Village

general manager Charmaine

Diver told Western News it was

happy for the service to be held

at its spaces and has offered it to

the committee.

Last year the library service

was held at Rannerdale because

the library was closed in October

2017 by the city council.

Memorial library chairwoman

Aynslie Walter previously told

Western News it wouldn’t be

organising a separate event at

Rannerdale because it was quite

an exercise to close off part of

the building so there can be a

dawn service.

But Ms Diver said it is not an

exercise to close off part of Rannerdale.

“We just open up the venue so

we are not here to facilitate,” she

said.

But Mrs Walter said it has now

been decided representatives

will go to the Anzac service at

Rannerdale.

FRUSTRATION: Arthur Woods, Aynslie Walter, Mary Ibbetson, Keith Walter and Ailsa Smith

have previously protested against the closure Upper Riccarton Memorial Library.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

“It is far too late for me to

arrange another service . . . we

have already told people we are

not doing a service this year,”

she said.

The library was closed after

an engineering assessment

raised concerns over structural

strength. Members of the Upper

Riccarton Memorial Library

Committee have previously opposed

the closure of the library.

Opened on March 19, 1919,

the library was the first of seven

war memorials to be built in

New Zealand. This year would

have marked 100 years since the

library was opened to remember

the men from the area who gave

their lives in World War 1.

Since March last year,

volunteers have been operating

out of the annex of the building

at the library.

Fashion Forecast Show

a first at The Hub

The Hub Hornby is proud to put on their very first Fashion

Forecast show on 11 April from 7pm to 8pm. This hourlong,

free event will showcase the latest autumn and

winter styles from a wide variety of fashion retailers within

the centre.

The growing variety of fashion and accessory

stores at The Hub now means customers

can shop for the latest fashions, including

shoes and accessories at the centre

with plenty to choose from and,

importantly, for all body types.

Rather than using professional

models, participating retailers are

organising their own models, using

staff, friends, and family. Centre

Manager, Jason Marsden, says

“We wanted to deliver an authentic

showcase of the upcoming new

season’s fashion. Rather than seeing

traditional models take to the runway and

people thinking that they may not be able

to wear that, we want to showcase real people

wearing real clothing.”

“This is going to be all about real fashion on real people.

We want our customers to think: ‘Yes I could wear that’.

This will also add a lot of fun to the event and there may

even be one or two surprise looks”.

Participating fashion stores include Caroline Eve, Farmers,

Max, K&K, Bras’n Things, Pagani, Jeanswest, Moda Bella,

Ziera Shoes plus others.

Proud to be… fashion experts on hand

During the lead up to the show, The Hub recently ran

an initiative called: ‘Proud to Be….’. This saw people

nominated and six winners each receiving a full makeover

to reflect their own personal style. “The aim

is to celebrate the diversity, stories,

and people of the greater Hornby

community. These recipients

will be familiar faces in the

community and it will be great

to introduce them and their

new looks throughout the

show, as each will take to

the runway to celebrate their

nomination,” says Marsden.

Moda Bella

Each of the ‘Proud to Be…’

winners are in the process

of experiencing a makeover

with The Hub’s resident style

expert, Vick McMillian, creating a

look that suits the individual and their

personality.

Customers who are unsure or would like some additional

help can utilise the services of The Hub’s very own fashion

stylist Vicki McMillan. Vicki styles the three mannequins

located outside Michael Hill, drawing from multiple

retailers thus creating unique looks not seen in any single

store.

Come along to the Hub Hornby for the Fashion Forecast

show on 11 April from 7pm to 8pm – See you there!

Bishopdale mall businesses fed up

Stalled upgrade,

low foot traffic

taking a toll

• 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-years-old 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 Business

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.

“Ten thousand dollars won’t

even get the . . . toilets fixed,” said

Mr Ralfe.

Development Christchurch

Ltd is in charge of the

redevelopment, working

alongside the business

association and community

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

funding had been set aside for

the regeneration work.

“(That) would need to be done

through council’s Annual Plan

process,” they said.

Community board member

Aaron Campbell said Bishopdale

Village Mall was a lot further

down the list in terms of

development priority.

“The issue now is that DCL do

not have budget.”

A quick walk around the mall

reveals several empty lots and

little foot traffic.

Shopper Nellie Meares

said the mall had become

“an afterthought”, especially

compared to the upgraded

Northlands Mall 2km away.

A key anchor tenant, Mitre 10,

moved out three years ago.

It was reported last year that

businessman Doug Spence

had bought the store’s former

building, which remains vacant

nearly a year on.

Mr Spence could not be

reached for comment on his

plans for the building.

QE II toilet costs

could be slashed

• 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, vegetation, seating,

a drinking fountain and cycle

stands.

Easter egg

hunt to aid

Methodist

Mission

CHOCOHOLICS CAN indulge

over Easter and know it’s all for a

good cause.

The Christchurch Methodist

Mission is organising the

inaugural My Easter Egg Hunt

fundraising campaign. Anyone

can host a hunt at a venue of

their choice. The mission is

encouraging individuals, churches

and businesses to take part.

Once registered online,

participants can buy a batch of

eggs and hide them around their

backyard, work place or local park.

Participants will be encouraged

to ask people attending their

hunt to make a donation to the

mission. Easter egg hunts can be

registered online at http://bit.ly/

myeasteregghunt2019. The hunts

can be run anytime from April

13-28.

Two Canterbury businesses

are backing the hunt. Trade Aid

is providing the chocolate, and

chocolatiers She Universe will

transform them into delicious

eggs.

The money raised will help

the mission provide food and

clothing, housing, financial

support for power bills and school

costs, budgeting advice and

support for families impacted by

family violence.

To make it even sweeter, the

chocolate is entirely fair trade and

organic.

“We’d love to see lots of people

taking part, knowing this is going

to help families who struggle,

particularly as we come into

winter,” Christchurch Methodist

Mission executive director Jill

Hawkey said.

“Make it a family get-together

or a work do and enjoy yourselves.

Everyone loves an Easter egg

hunt and no one can resist good

chocolate. All calories are negated

because it’s for a good cause.”

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

DECISION MADE: Last year a narrow vote at the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community Board determined Kyle Park

would be the location for the Hornby Library, Customer Services

and South West Leisure Centre.

A reader responds to the

Western News article on

freedom camping issues at

Burnside Park

Philippa Lane – As I live

in the area, I often return home

past Burnside Park around 9pm.

There are often two to three

small vans parked on the Avonhead

Rd frontage. They obviously

have no toilet facilities and

there are none in the vicinity, so

it is only too obvious that they

will be using the park as a toilet.

We have laws to stop this activity,

so why don’t we use them?

Any costs would be covered

by the fines imposed. In some

places, the police are monitoring

freedom campers as they make

their normal rounds. We also

need to have a system whereby

any unpaid fines are transmitted

immediately to the airport, so

that they may be stopped from

leaving the country until all

fines are paid.

A reader responds to the

Western News article on

Bottle-O Halswell changing

its contract from purchasing

a store at The Oaks

Village Halswell complex

to leasing it

Gary Knight – In spite of

reversing their decision to purchase

a shop at Oaks village in

favour of a leasing arrangement

the siting of a liquor outlet by

Bottle-O Halswell would be a

retrograde step. Three liquor

outlets in Halswell and two in

close proximity in Hoon Hay

(inclusive of a Bottle-O) would

deem the proposed outlet in

Ensign St totally unnecessary

and demeaning for many

Halswell residents from a social

perspective. When considering

the inclusion of a liquor outlet in

any suburb a sense of rationale

must prevail to ensure that its

presence is not one of over placement

and does not encroach on

viewpoints of many of its local

residents.

A reader responds to

where the Hornby

mega-facility should be

located

Mary Leighton – It would

be great if some of our elected

members stop playing monopoly

with the proposed Hornby

Library and South West Leisure

Centre and just get it built in

Hornby. The project has Hornby

in its name and should be built

in Hornby, the residents have

spoken – we did not want it in

Denton and put it in Kyle.

Most of the elected members

appear to be able to accept that

but it is disappointing we still

have some board members in

the likes of Helen Broughton

and Debbie Mora who by your

article appear hell-bent on

delaying the project or even

worse moving it out of Hornby.

The experts all agree Kyle

Park can be built on with no

risk to the public/project but

some elected members think

they know better than the

experts. Just get on and build

the complex on Kyle Park for

Hornby’s sake.

Enjoy our stunning scenery,

whatever the weather

Canterbury’s weather has been

notoriously fickle this summer and heading

into autumn, but there’s doubtless plenty of

great weather left. That mean there’s still

time to take the kids camping, head out for

the hills for weekend tramps, or even start

checking out the Southern Alps for the first

signs of snow.

team at High Country Snow and Outdoors,

you and your whanau will be ready.

Conveniently based at Dress-Smart Outlet

With the Easter school holidays just around

the corner, this is the perfect time to get

kitted out so you can enjoy our stunning

devices for a while.

Bargain books &

gifts – at work,

in-store or online

Many of the staff rooms and coffee

rooms across Christchurch have

a regular delivery of a box of

treasures. Books and Gifts Direct

supply schools, hospitals, offices

and daycare centres throughout

the Garden City with a display

stand that contains a trove of

discounted books, gifts and

homeware for all ages. Because

they buy direct from the publisher

and the manufacturer, they

pass on these low prices to their

customers. It is an ideal way to

buy affordable presents from the

comfort of your workplace.

However, what many people

don’t know is that Books and

Gifts Direct also has a bricks

and mortar outlet store at 247

Annex Road in Middleton. The

bright façade is easy to spot and

there’s plenty of parking. Best of all,

everything is up to 70% off. With the

school Easter holidays coming up,

parents, grandparents and whanau

are looking for affordable ways to

entertain little ones without resorting

to electronic devices. Books and Gifts

Direct are here to help. They have

colouring books, crayon sets, dot-todot

books and sticker activity books

for the artistic youngsters; plus a huge

range of story books by authors such

as Julia Donaldson. Whether your

little ones are interested in dragons or

mermaids, in unicorns or bugs, you

will find something they will love to

read again and again.

If you want to keep your children

busy and active, there are cookbooks

for little chefs and sets of blocks to

teach colours, letters and numbers.

Older children are catered for too,

with craft sets and advanced drawing

and design books. Even though

there’s no school, many of Books and

Gift Direct’s gift sets help children

keep learning, with books stuffed

full of the kinds of amazing facts that

children love.

It’s not only about the children,

though. They stock discounted

books, tech and car gadgets, and

homeware for everyone – unusual

and quirky items that not only make

life easier but are great gift ideas too.

Call in to browse – they are

open Monday to Saturday, 9am

to 4pm, or visit booksgiftsdirect.

how to arrange a regular staffroom

The lucky new owners will quickly

appreciate the highly sought after Mt

Pleasant location on a near level site,

incorporating sunshine and views which

unbeatable homely feel. Inside there

for saving electricity. The separate laundry

leads to the outside area.

Upstairs the third lounge and main

to the private, sunny grassed area, a

sheltered courtyard provides an alternate

external space to enjoy.

Our warm, modern homes are built with accessibility as a
