Debate

over

name for

hot water

pools

• By Matt Slaughter

CHRISTCHURCH Hot Pools or

New Brighton Hot Pools?

These are the early options

that have been suggested for the

name of the hot pools, set to be

completed in New Brighton early

next year.

Pegasus Post spoke to key

people to get their views on what

it should be called.

New Brighton Business

and Landowners Association

chairwoman Rebecca Tavete said

Christchurch Hot Pools is the best

option.

Mrs Tavete said having

Christchurch in the title will be

more likely to draw people in

from outside New Brighton.

“Definitely talking about

Christchurch will have a bigger

reach,” she said.

“It’s a celebration for

Christchurch, really.

“We’re in New Brighton, they

are always going to have New

Brighton attached to them, I just

don’t know if it’s necessary that

we need to call them that.”

DEBATE OVER the name for the salt

water pools is heating up – and so it should

be (see page 1).

Christchurch Hot Pools, New Brighton

Hot Pools or maybe something else?

David East and Rebecca Tavete are

angling towards Christchurch. They say it will give the pools

more marketing depth as an attraction for out-of-towners. And

there is much merit in that.

Says Tavete: “It’s a celebration for Christchurch. We’re in New

Brighton, they are always going to have New Brighton attached

to them.”

Others don’t like it at all and say the pools should reflect New

Brighton – and there are some who don’t want either.

Put it out to the public to have a big say in the final decision.

CDHB pushing clinics to offer discount

• By Matt Slaughter

THE CANTERBURY District

Health Board is driving a push

to get four medical clinics to

take part in a Government

policy to offer low-cost health

care.

New Brighton Health

Care, Travis Medical Centre,

Marshlands

Family Health

Centre and

Woodham Road

Medical are the

last clinics in

the east to not

Carolyn

Gullery

offer community

services card

discounts.

From July 1, the clinics

will get another chance to

do so. However, Tāmaki

Health, which owns New

Brighton Health Care, won’t

change its original decision

to not offer community

services card discounts at this

stage.

Said Tāmaki Health chief

operating officer Steffan

Crausaz: “There is no update or

change from our earlier position

that New Brighton Health Care

has decided to remain outside

of the new funding regime

for community services cardholders.”

Canterbury District Health

Board executive director of

planning, funding and decision

support, Carolyn Gullery, said it

was time New Brighton Health

Care and the other remaining

clinics offered the discount.

Marshlands Family Health

Care practice manager Anna

Brown said its decision to

not offer community services

discounts was “constantly being

reviewed.”

Woodham Road Medical and

Travis Medical Centre managers

were not available for comment.

Ms Gullery said the CDHB

has been working with these

clinics and others across

HIGH

COST: New

Brighton

Health

Care is

one of four

medical

centres

in the

east that

doesn’t

offer

community

services

card

discounts.

Canterbury to explain the

benefits of the low-cost scheme

for general practices and their

patients, but not all clinics saw it

as a feasible option.

“Some practices, particularly

those already struggling to

meet patient demand, have

been concerned about how they

would cope with more visits

from people with a community

services card.”

Ms Gullery said the CDHB

would provide financial support

to soften the impact.

“Practices offering low-cost

care receive additional funding

from the CDHB to compensate

for the reduced income from

patient fees. We’re very hopeful

that some of the remaining

practices will see their way clear

to begin offering low-cost visits

to people with a community

services card at the next

opportunity.”

Currently, 100 Canterbury

clinics have opted into the policy

to provide the discounts.

At clinics offering the

discounted, it costs $18.50 or less

per visit for adult community

services card-holders and $12.50

for children aged between 14

and 17. This saves card-holders

about $30 per visit.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board deputy chairman Tim

Sintes said Tāmaki Health’s

stance is simply not good

enough.

“When I hear people can’t

afford to go to the doctor’s

and they need to go to the

doctor’s, it’s shocking, absolutely

shocking.”

Eastcare Health, Linwood

Medical, Parklands Medical,

Piki Te Ora, QE II Medical,

Queenspark Healthcare,

Shirley Medical and Te

Rawhiti Family Care make up

the rest of the clinics in the

east and all have opted into

the Government’s low-cost

health care policy since it was

introduced.

Successful barbershop

run out of Aranui garage

•From page 1

Mr Koia said his young

children Phoenix, 9, and

Jeremiah, 2, and wife Nikkita are

the driving forces behind his hard

work and dedication to his craft.

“I’ve got a mortgage to pay for,

I work from home and it’s my

own business. That in itself is the

biggest motivator.”

His work has also seen him

give back to the community,

most recently teaming up with

My Fathers Barbers to raise

$3000 for the mosque shooting

victims and their families

and providing free haircuts

for Christchurch’s homeless

population in the past.

Mr Koia said he also gets a kick

out of adding some style to the

lives of community members in

the east, where he has lived and

worked for nine years.

“I get guys from down the

street and my neighbours. They

love having a barber so close.

They don’t have to go into the

city or drive somewhere far away

to get a good haircut, it’s right

there.”

The former furniture remover

said his growing passion for his

work means there is no way he

would ever consider changing

jobs again.

CUT ABOVE: Luke Koia

dominated The Battle For

Barber City nationals, winning

several individual awards and

the overall title.

“I’m just going to make this

work and I’m making a career out

of this thing no matter what.”

With another child on the

way, Mr Koia is determined to

continue developing as a barber

and plans to expand his business.

“I’m just so hungry to keep

getting better because there’s

nothing else, I don’t have plans to

do anything else. This is me until

I’m done,” he said.

•From page 1

Bin Inn New Brighton owner

Nikki Griffin said she didn’t

support either name and wants

the community to have a say on

a completely different name.

“It would be nice to have

a consultation with the

community, I think that both

names sound boring.”

“This is a legacy project and I

don’t think any of

those names suit a

legacy project.”

DCL chief

executive Rob Hall

said it is using

Christchurch Hot

Pools as a working

title at this stage

but it is open to

the kind of public consultation

Ms Griffin suggested.

“That’s something we need

to think through a bit more. At

the moment, we’ve settled on

Christchurch Hot Pools, but that

will be undertaken over the next

few months.”

South New Brighton

resident Soozie Bragg said

there is only one option in her

opinion.

“It has to be New Brighton

Hot Pools because, after all,

that’s where it is.”

“It’s New Brighton that’s been

pushing for this for close to 50

years.” She said giving the pools

this name would be the best way

to put New Brighton on the map

again and encourage outsiders

to visit.

However, Coastal Ward

city councillor David East

agreed with Mrs Tavete, saying

Christchurch Hot Pools would

simply have more city-wide,

national and international

appeal.

Champion Centre ‘lifesaver’ for family

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Jess Gibson

IN THE weeks and months

after her son Blake was born, the

Champion Centre at Burwood

Hospital was a lifesaver for Susie

Chisnall and her family.

Five-year-old Blake Chisnall

has Down’s syndrome and has

been going to sessions at the

centre since he was just a few

weeks old. Staff encouraged and

supported him as he learned to

crawl, walk and talk.

Now, Ms Chisnall, of St Albans,

has given back to the centre.

She raised $4890 at a high tea

and charity auction event at the

hairdressing and beauty salon

she co-owns, Salon Parlour on

Cranford St, St Albans.

The Champion Centre is a

not-for-profit organisation that

provides early intervention services

to infants and children with

significant developmental delays

and disabilities.

Bromley School pupils get taste of university life

• By Matt Slaughter

THE NEXT generation of

university graduates are being

inspired at Bromley School.

The school is taking part

in the Children’s University

programme, a joint project

with Lincoln and Canterbury

universities to start getting

pupils thinking about their

academic futures from an early

age.

Lincoln University Children’s

University project manager

Jennie Nicholson said 24

pupils from Bromley School

will engage in a range of extracurricular

activities, including

sports, on-campus experiences

and trips to ​public learning

destinations.

Each pupil will document

the activities and the different

were some of the prizes which

were auctioned off.

Ms Chisnall said the staff at the

centre, including occupational

therapists, physiotherapists,

locations they complete them at

in a learning passport.

The passports were handed

out by Ms Nicholson at

Bromley School on Thursday

and will be completed by pupils

over the next seven months.

Once they have completed 30

hours of activities outlined in

the passports, the pupils will

be invited to dress up in full

cap and gown for a graduation

ceremony at the town hall on

November 20.

Ms Nicholson said Bromley

School, along with Te Pā

o Rākaihautū, Ladbrooks

and Prebbleton schools, will

take part in the Children’s

University programme.

Bromley School junior team

leader Lindi Newth said it is

a huge opportunity for the

social workers, and speech and

language therapists are incredible.

“At a time when you are really

struggling to come to grips with

school. “It’s a low decile school,

a lot of our children don’t

know that university exists,

so we’re trying to make sure

our children have as many

opportunities as possible to

succeed in learning.”

Ms Nicholson said 15,000

school pupils in Australia

currently participate in the

programme and it has been so

successful there is a waiting list

for schools which want to join.

She hopes the programme

will do great things for

Bromley’s pupils.

“The programme aims

to raise aspirations for

higher education, but more

importantly, it helps to install a

love of learning and show that

learning is everywhere and it

is fun.”

SUPPORT:

Susie Chisnall

raised almost

$5000 for the

Champion

Centre after

it helped her

and her son

Blake (inset).

all of the challenges you’re facing

as a parent of a child with extra

needs they are the people who

give you information, support

and just all around kindness and

compassion,” she said.

The Champion Centre opened

in 1977 and is based on the belief

that every child, regardless of

physical, mental, or social capacity,

has the right to be educated,

to learn, grow, contribute, and to

reach their individual potential.

Play specialist Emma Chilvers

has worked with Blake for two

years and said he has been “delightful.”

“[The donation] is overwhelming.

What it says to us is that

she appreciates what the centre

stands for and the importance

of early intervention,” said Mrs

Chilvers.

Grants and fundraising

coordinator Karon Storr said

that parents are “definitely

the best ambassadors for the

centre.”

The Champion Centre has

supported more than 2000

families in Canterbury and is

currently working with more

than 165 children.

However, less than 60 per cent

of its services are funded through

Government agencies.

Proposal for new community hub in the east

Linda Stewart

• By Matt Slaughter

A PROPOSAL for a new community

hub for residents in Burwood,

Avondale and Dallington will be

brought before the city council.

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board will make this

submission to the 2019-2020 draft

Annual Plan.

Board member Linda Stewart

said research carried out by social

researcher Sarah Wylie and an initial

feasibility study completed by Global

Leisure Group highlighted the need

for such a facility.

She said the research revealed the

massive loss of infrastructure that

these three areas faced had negatively

impacted mental health in the three

areas.

“We’ve got well-being issues and

social isolation.”

The board’s chairwoman, Kim

Money, agreed.

“Eight years down the track we’re

just seeing far too much anxiety and

depression and suicide,” she said.

“These gathering spaces

really help communities connect

and just help with the belonging

in a community . . . so it is essential.”

Mrs Stewart said she wants a

community hub to be built right in

the middle of the three communities

to bring them together and help

address these issues.

Mrs Stewart said she estimated the

construction of a community hub

would cost between $5 million and

$6 million and the board is currently

in discussions about the best way to

fund this.

Ms Money said the board hopes

the project will be green-lighted

as soon as possible, but realistically

she is pushing for it to be included

within the city council’s next Long

Term Plan.

HARCOURTS GOLD OFFICE MANAGER PARKLANDS AND NEW BRIGHTON

ROBUST START TO

THE NEW YEAR!

With one of our busiest times of the year now upon us,

our offices at Parklands and New Brighton have hit the

ground running during the first quarter, working with a

wide catalogue of available homes, in all price brackets

right across the city. Good open home attendance, and

online enquiry has produced positive activity, and the

volume of listings coming into Harcourts throughout

the city continues to indicate that we are still the most

preferred company in Christchurch.

It’s worth noting that the Reserve Bank’s reduced LVR

restrictions came into effect from 1 January. This means

that banks will now lend 20 per cent of their new loans

to owner-occupiers who have a deposit of less than 20

per cent of a purchase price – up from 15 per cent of new

lending. The required minimum deposit for investors

has now dropped to 30% from 35%. Subsequently,

it’s foreseeable that these changes will bring a new

batch of buyers into the housing market. In our local

neighbourhood, it has also been pleasing to witness an

increase in active first home buyers looking to get on

the property ladder.

Whilst I will always advocate an optimistic outlook,

my message for those looking to sell, BE selective and

BE sensible. Choose your sales consultant wisely and

be sensible with price expectations if your home sits

outside what we refer to as the market’s ‘sweet spots’,

or there is an oversupply of available property in your

neighbourhood.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS CREATING

OPPORTUNITES.

It is no secret that the new developments in our eastern

suburbs have sparked conversation and heightened

interest in our local community over the past few years,

and in particular, it’s been incredibly exciting to watch the

final stages of the ‘two schools on one campus’ (Avonside

Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High Schools) take their form. Due

to open the beginning of Term 2, this brand new, state

of the art campus, is going to be a crucial asset for the

east of Christchurch and will become a main contributor

determining the real estate market locally.

Speaking of schools, be sure to enter our online

competition offering the opportunity to win movie tickets

which may come in handy these upcoming April holidays.

CHOOSE THE HARCOURTS GOLD

TEAM FOR 'AS IS' SALES!

With over 400 ‘As Is’ sales under our belt, and more in the

pipeline, we are still frequently asked to sell damaged,

and/or problematic, homes right across the city. We

absolutely believe we have the most experience and

know-how to get the job done, a tried and true marketing

template, and an extensive online database of buyers

ready to purchase.

Our eastside offices in particular, have acted as a beacon

for both homeowners and other real estate professionals,

requiring clarity when dealing with complex property and

real estate matters.

LOOKING FOR A CHANGE IN 2019?

Whether you are an established agent looking for a fresh

start, or you’ve been thinking of making a career change

in 2019, we are looking for some fresh faces to join our

dynamic team. Harcourts gold is a great company to

work with, offering a supportive environment, and an

active mentoring programme. Our eastside offices based

at Parklands and New Brighton are very much community

based, and our agents of varied experience, share the

same passion for people and property. Should a vocation

in real estate be of interest to you, please visit one of our

local offices, or give Nikila a call on 027 5175 645.

Looking for an

exciting career

choice in 2019?

have the skill, support and systems to

propel your career. Contact me today.

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

A NEW MARIAN COLLEGE FOR 2023

MESSAGE FROM

THE BOARD

The Marian College Board is pleased

to share the Bishop’s decision to

relocate Marian College to north west

Christchurch on a three hectare site.

Our new College will neighbour St

Joseph’s Primary School on land

bordered by Vagues Road, Main North

Road and Northcote Road, with the main

entrance off Lydia Street.

The new school is projected to cost in

excess of $20 million and students are

expected to start in February 2023.

The Bishop said finding a new home for

Marian College has always been one of

his main priorities. The purchase of the

former Foodstuffs warehouse property on

Northcote Road has made this possible.

He indicated scoping and design work

will begin ready for when possession of

the land takes place in April 2021.

The news is exciting and very positive

for Marian College and the changes are

going to further strengthen and grow our

Catholic community.

Thank you to the Bishop on behalf of

Marian College for his commitment to

our future, and to the Catholic Diocese

of Christchurch for its steady support

over the years.

The Catholic Bishop of Christchurch, Paul

Martin and Marian College Principal Mary-

Lou Davidson visiting Marian College’s

new Papanui site.

Thank you also to our school community

for your loyalty and patience and to all

the schools, businesses and communities

who have supported Marian since the

earthquakes. It means a lot to us.

We look forward to the challenges the

next four years bring us and to having

closer working relationships with St

Joseph’s School Papanui and our brother

school St Bede’s College.

Tātou ko Mere e whakapono ana

With Mary in faith

Jan Paterson

Marian College Board of Trustees Chair

SOME OF YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

What will the new school look like?

It is too early to say just yet. What we do know is that we intend to ensure the Catholic

special character, values, heritage and story of Marian is incorporated and reflected in our

new school’s grounds and buildings. While we are fortunate to be getting a new school –

the heart of Marian College will remain the same.

Our new Forde Block (Social Sciences and Careers), which opened at the beginning

of this year, combines the best of traditional and open-plan classroom settings within a

multi-functional and sound-proof learning environment. So far, the feedback from students

and teachers has been positive, so it’s likely our new school will have similarly designed

classrooms.

Will there be opportunities for input into the new school?

Yes. We will be engaging with our school community and gathering ideas in coming

months.

Why is it taking until 2023 to get a new school?

The newly purchased site is currently tenanted and the lease expires in 2021. The Catholic

Diocese of Christchurch will then take possession of the land. In the meantime, there will

be valuable time for consultation, scoping and design work, before construction starts.

Will travel to and from the new school be more difficult?

Our new site is conveniently located on main arterial roads including QEII Drive and the

ring road to Eastern and seaside suburbs, Main North Road through to North Canterbury

as well as the Orbiter bus route. Connecting cycleways include the Papanui Parallel

Cycleway, Northern Line Cycleway and QEII Shared Cycleway.

By the time our new school is ready, the Christchurch Northern Corridor will be open. It is

expected this road will significantly reduce traffic volumes on Main North Road – by up to

50 per cent. It will also create an opportunity for the city council to make changes to Main

North Road resulting in improved public transport journey times.

Access to transport is an important part of our planning. We are confident that our families

will have suitable transport options for students travelling from more than 30 of our feeder

primary schools - families living in Central and East Christchurch, the seaside suburbs and

North Canterbury.

My daughter is currently a senior student at Marian – will she feel left out?

A wonderful aspect of Marian College is how supportive and understanding our school

community is through periods of change. We often say: “once a Marian girl, always a

Marian girl”. Marian College will be making every effort to include all students in the

shaping of our new school - regardless of whether they will be attending. We are asking

past students and staff of Marian College and also our founding schools St Mary’s College

(Christchurch) and McKillop College, to provide valuable input into what the new school

will look like.

Pupils design play area

to revitalise red zone

• By Matt Slaughter

A NEW natural play area

designed by Banks Avenue

School pupils will be constructed

by the end of term four.

The development, which pupils

have named Adventure Ave, will

sit between Woodchester Ave

and Tilia Lane at the Richmond

end of the Avon River.

The play area will include a

number of features, which will

allow users to run, jump, climb

and use their imagination.

Planning for Adventure

Ave is in the final stage, with

construction set to start after

the pupils pitch their idea to

neighbours in the area and a

decision is made on how the

project will be funded.

The project is a collaboration

between Banks Avenue School

and the Avon-Ōtākaro Network

as part of its Riverlution project

to revitalise the red zone

surrounding the Avon River.

Avon-Ōtākaro Network

Education adviser Sian Carvell

said the pupils decided it should

be as environmentally-friendly

and safe as possible and blend

into the natural environment.

“Most people, when they think

playground, they think swings

and slides and towers . . . but this

is a lot more innovative. As the

kids said, they wanted it to be

facilitator Kyle Sutherland.

with a mix of activities . . . have

water, have no plastic, be reusable

and have art in the design.”

Ms Carvell said the pupils are

been “very excited about being

involved in the planning and

decision-making around the project

and having their ideas heard

and taken seriously.”

Pegasus Post reported last

month that a number of Banks

Avenue school pupils have shown

signs of post-traumatic stress

disorder as a result of the earthquakes.

Ms Carvell said allowing the

school’s pupils to contribute to

the regeneration of the Avon

River Corridor through this project

would help them and others

in the community recover.

“It’s about reconnecting back

to the land that caused a lot of

trauma in their lives. It’s shown

that that connection with nature

is a really big aspect for healing

and well-being, not just for kids,

but for adults as well.”

Planning for Adventure Ave is

in its last stage, with construction

set to begin after pupils pitch

their idea to neighbours in the

area.

Avonside rower’s big break after Maadi Cup

• By Gordon Findlater

A STRONG showing at the

Maadi Cup regatta has seen

Avonside Girls’ High School

student Sally Wylaars named as

a New Zealand junior trialist.

Wylaars will head to the trial

at Lake Karapiro, which takes

place from Sunday to April 20.

The aim of the junior trials

is to select crews to represent

New Zealand at the junior world

rowing championships in Tokyo,

Japan, from August 7-11.

Her selection came after Maadi

Cup, in which she won a silver

medal in the girls under-18

double sculls.

Wylaars and Maddy

Thornton were the quickest in

their heat and quarter-final early

in the regatta. They booked a

spot in the A final by finishing

second in their semi-final –

6sec behind Tauranga Girls’

College.

In the final, Wylaars and

Thornton were in contention

for the win, but settled for a

SPORT

more than respectable second,

finishing in 7min 27.51sec,

behind the winners from St

Peter’s School who won in 7min

25.12sec. The bronze went to St

Hilda’s Collegiate.

Wylaars also narrowly missed

out on making the A final in

the girls under-18 single sculls.

However, she won the B final in

commanding fashion.

Her time of 8min 9.05sec was

more than 10sec ahead of her

nearest rival and would have

been good enough to finish fifth

in the A final.

Avonside Girls’ High also took

silver in the girls under-18 novice

coxed quadruple sculls.

After winning their heat and

quarter-final, Aria Johnston,

Aaliyah Kerry, Stella Cook, Ash

Fleming and coxswain Isabella

Sherburd qualified for the final

by finishing second in the semifinal.

In the final they finished

just over 2sec behind winners

Mt Aspiring College in 7min

40.05sec. Avonside Girls’ High

were also represented in the A

final of the girls under-15 coxed

quadruple sculls.

The crew of Aria Johnston,

Stella Cook, Ash Fleming, Molly

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.”

The changes are designed to try

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

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

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

September-May along with a Thai

f od truck.

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

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

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

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

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.
