Stoush breaks out over table

It’s not just

says Jones

• By Julia Evans and Jess

Gibson

PAPANUI-INNES Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

has taken to Facebook to defend

spending more than $4500 on a

table.

It follows criticism from

Shirley resident Don Gould on

Facebook, who posted the table

was too expensive and not what

the community wanted. He

then repeated

his criticism

in Nor’West

News last week,

catching the ire of

Ms Jones.

Ms Jones told

Ali Jones

Don Gould

Nor’West News

Mr Gould he was

“social media

trolling.”

On Facebook,

Ms Jones posted:

“I look forward

to Mr Gould

running for

public office so

he can put his

immense experience and talents

to use in real life rather than just

as a keyboard warrior.”

Earlier this month the

community board voted 3-2

Byrne, Pauline Cotter

installation. It will be used for

multiple purposes – including

ping pong.

Ms Jones has been highly

critical online of Nor’West News

coverage of the decision to

purchase the table.

Mr Gould said it was too

expensive for a “ping pong table.”

But Ms Jones said it was more

than that – it could also be used

as a normal table.

The move came after

Richmond resident Jennifer

Dalziel raised concerns over

a lack of seating at the Shirley

Rd site – the board is now

investigating seating for the

table. But Mr Gould said it “isn’t

what the community asked for.”

WE’VE TAKEN a few body blows and

upper cuts in the last few days from Ali

Jones (see page 1).

Online ones, I have to point out.

It’s over our coverage last week of the

Papanui-Innes Community Board’s

decision (vote 3-2 in favour) to buy a table for the Shirley

Community Centre.

It will cost ratepayers nearly $5000 for the concrete beast and

you can play ping-pong on it. For some, we apparently didn’t

point out enough it will also have other uses.

Sorry!

A resident who apparently is not shy at having a crack at

elected officials on Facebook was quoted in our article. That

too appears to have set the blood boiling . . . but viewpoints are

viewpoints.

Would you pay nearly $5k for the table?

Campbell to chase ECan seat

• By Jess Gibson

OUTSPOKEN politician Aaron

Campbell will not be running

for the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

in October.

Instead, he will stand for

ECan’s West-Ōpuna seat in

the local body elections, which

covers the Halswell, Hornby,

Waimairi and Harewood wards.

He told The Star on Thursday

he would stand for both ECan

and the board but has now

said he will only run for ECan

because the city council does

not allow a person to stand for

both.

Mr Campbell said the

restriction has given him more

motivation to get elected to

ECan. “It will be slightly easier

to campaign for one position,”

he said.

Mr Campbell said regardless

of the result, he would remain

“deeply invested in the

community.”

“If I do or don’t get on I will

certainly carry on with being

involved in the community in

some way,” he said.

Mr Campbell is a founding

member of Aotearoa Water

ECan is dealing with are “much

bigger” than what the city

council is dealing with.

“[ECan] is where I can

contribute the most,” he said.

He will campaign as an

independent.

ELECTION BID: Commercial

water bottling critic Aaron

Campbell will stand for

ECan in the October local

body elections.

Mr Campbell said if he is

elected he will “step back” from

the table if any conflicts of

interest arise and he would not

vote if a decision involved AWA.

“I don’t see my position on

AWA inhibiting my ability to

run for ECan. In fact, I think it’s

more favourable because people

know where I stand,” he said.

“Politicians can be members

of a number of groups as long as

they declare that interest.”

“I’m not making money or

losing money for [AWA], it’s

purely from a community

perspective that I’m interested

and I’m committed on that

front.”

He said he will continue to

focus on water as it is “this

election’s hot-button issue.”

“From water bottling

to degradation of rivers,

Cantabrians are saying enough,”

he said.

No solar panels

for Harewood

reserve toilets

• By Julia Evans

Fire rages, homes at risk

SOLAR PANELS will not

be installed at the new Lake

Roto Kohatu Reserve toilets in

Harewood.

City councillor Aaron Keown

said this is due to a number of

thefts at other public toilets. The

$10,000 panels on top of the toilets

at Bexley Reserve have been

stolen twice.

Cr Keown said it is a shame as

taking power of the national grid

is “10 times the price” of installing

panels. “It’s a completely different

neighbourhood,” he said.

Feedback on the proposed

$1 million toilet block will be

presented to the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board before it is approved.

The plans are for two separate

toilet blocks 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.

I chose ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’

as the title for the trilogy because I

feel that it best represents my work

and the person I am.

*Melancholy: a feeling of pensive

sadness, typically with no obvious

cause.

Part I: Identity 2018

Part II: Dissectum 2019

Part III: Lost & Found 2020

Dissectum means ‘deeply cut’ and

in its original meaning refers to the

deep cuts in foliage. For me the

deep cuts are not just the ones we

need to make to understand the

workings of an organism but also

the potential deep cuts we need to

consider when we have to make

big decisions (as in: ‘Murderous

Intent’). To be deeply cut can also

be the result of our experiences in

life. And with deep cuts comes the

need to heal, to find ways to put

what is left back together again or to

form a ‘new’.

The exhibition is in two parts –

the front of the gallery is ‘The

Wunderkammer*’ where various

objects, boxes and other curios are

shown.

*Wunderkammer: A cabinet of

scientific curiosities, especially

during the Renaissance

In the back of the gallery I am

exhibiting a series of, mainly

charcoal drawings, all working with

or referring to ‘Dissectum’, plus

4 small bird paintings embellished

with embroidery.

Simon van der Sluijs is an artist

of Dutch descent and traditional

painting and drawing training.

His themes are deeply personal,

unconventional, dark, humorous and

disturbing.

“We have broken core basic

Gould told Nor’West News.

He admitted he was a

I personally don’t think that

there’s anything wrong with the

“But they need to be informed

because I found his uninformed

for it because it’s more resilient,

it can be used by a number of

Board member Jo Byrne said

she did not pay attention to the

Facebook post. “He is a tricky

in local government, you have

to be careful not to just listen

thought the table was a “great”

was too expensive, said he did

not support Ms Jones’ reaction.

Cobham pupils sing for

mosque attack victims

• By Jess Gibson

A SONG featuring 80 Cobham

Intermediate pupils has raised

about $900 for individuals and

families affected by the March 15

terror attack.

Release Our Love was written

by well-known performer Ali

Harper after she had a “calling”

to write a song to express her love

for the victims, survivors and

their families.

Harper said she wanted to

perform the song with a school

choir, and decided to reach

out to choral teacher Philippa

Chilvers to see if the Cobham

Intermediate School choir could

come on board.

Miss Chilvers said the

experience of recording in a

studio and being able to listen

to the song was “really special”

for the pupils. “They were really

excited. They might not realise

until later how much of a big

thing it was to be a part of it,”

said Miss Chilvers.

The proceeds from each

download of the song go to

Victim Support’s Givealittle

page. Harper hopes the song will

teach young people about uniting

and making a change.

“We have to change where

we are heading in this world.

The words that I wrote really

resonated for me for the future of

our children.”

“The deputy head boy Josh

Ratulomai performed a Te Reo

solo, which was so beautiful,”

said Harper.

“It has been quite wonderful

because lots of schools around

New Zealand have been

contacting me for the music so

that it can become part of their

school assembly song.”

In race two, he started

Miya, 18, will head to the

United States in August to

attend the division one college

at Denton, which is a one hour

drive north-west of Dallas.

The former Burnside High

School student said North

Texas coach Brad Stracke,

the world-class facilities, and

the fact his friend Cameron

Harlock, of Auckland, has also

been recruited to play golf at

the college contributed to his

decision.

Miya recently romped to

victory by five shots at the South

at Harewood – which included

a seven under par 65 in the

second round. The win, along

with holding a 36-hole lead at

injured my wrist in December, so

I was out for a couple of months,

which was really frustrating,”

he said. “That’s when a lot of

tournaments were being played –

it sucked.”

Miya said there was something

in his swing which caused his left

wrist to hurt, and he has been

working hard in recent months to

resolve the issue.

“It’s about not getting so steep

and taking massive diverts

because it was putting strain on

the wrist.”

Another motivation for Miya

was seeing 16-year-old Rangiora

golfer Kazuma Kobori’s run of

incredible form. Kobori made

headlines when he won the NZ

PGA Championship last month.

“It’s pretty cool what

Kazuma has been doing and

everybody is looking up to him,”

said Miya.

I’m just trying to not lose to

him . . . I used to always beat him

and now he’s playing really well,

so it makes me work hard.”

Miya is putting in the hours at

Russley before heading to the US.

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

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

NOR’WEST NEWS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

An evening of great music with the

UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra

The UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra presents

Worlds Apart

Saturday 11 May

Christchurch Boys’ High School Hall,

Straven Rd, 7.30pm

Featuring music by:

Lilburn, Gershwin, Greig, Tichelli

and Prokofiev

Tickets from Eventfinda

$20 adults

$15 Seniors

$5 Students

ARTC8330

There’s something very special about hearing

a full orchestra of young people perform

some of the great classics.

So come and join our young musicians,

conducted by Helen Renaud, in a concert

of wonderful music from around the world.

From the beautiful lakes and mountains

of New Zealand with Lilburn’s Aotearoa

Overture to the noisy and bustling streets of

Paris in Gershwin’s American in Paris this

will be a concert of wonderful melodies and

great contrasts.

Our talented strings will perform Holberg

Suite by Greig, a five-movement work based

on 18th century dances before the wind,

brass and percussion of the concert band will

entertain with a rollicking and humorous

jazz inspired Blue Shades by Tichelli. Finally

from Russia, one of Prokofiev’s most wellknown

works and his first foray into film

music, the Lieutenant Kijé Suite. A concert

not to be missed.

The UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra

was founded in the 1970s and is the senior

orchestra of the Christchurch School of

Music. The orchestra is a musically and

technically advanced orchestra for the city’s

musical youth to widen and develop their

musical and performing experience.

Each year the orchestra performs 3-4

concerts and can often be called on to

perform at corporate and community events.

Professional players from the Christchurch

Symphony Orchestra and the New Zealand

Symphony Orchestra regularly work with

students at sectionals to coach them in the

nuances of orchestral playing.

In 2015 the CSM signed a sponsorship

agreement with the University of Canterbury

for the youth orchestra which is an exciting

development in the orchestra’s history. This

sponsorship gives naming rights to the

university and ensures the players can have

access to interesting repertoire and essential

equipment.

The musicians of the UC Christchurch

Youth Orchestra under their conductor have

worked hard to bring this concert to life so

come along and enjoy a wonderful evening

of great music.
