funding

boost

• By Matt Slaughter

A FINANCIAL crisis for

Brighton Gallery has been averted

for now.

Early last week, the Brighton

Gallery Trust was facing the

prospect of closing the gallery if it

could not find extra funding.

It asked the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board for a grant of

$6832 to pay its rent for next five

months, but only $4100 was given.

THis would have only allowed

three months to find a way to

keep the gallery open.

But, the Rata Foundation came

to the rescue, granting the gallery

$6000 on Friday.

Gallery trust secretary Jayne

Cummins said the board’s grant

wouldn’t have been enough to

save it, but Rata’s grant made sure

the gallery’s immediate future was

secure.

“It’s just taken the weight off

and we’re just over the moon.”

She said the two grants

combined would be enough to

keep the gallery going until the

end of this year at least.

GREAT NEWS for long suffering Bromley

residents on page 1 today: The tide is finally

turning in the long running war against

the midges.

And Janet Profit can take a lot of the

credit for it.

Janet, who lives in Shortland St, has battled the city council

for years over the midges, which gather at the oxidation ponds -

and then cause havoc for residents nearby.

She has featured regularly in the Pegasus Post over the issue,

which in my humble view has kept the pressure on the city

council to come up with remedies.

To their credit the city council has. The $300,000 which goes

into fighting midges each year seems to be paying off.

A good result all round.

To avoid potholes – Google it!

Map being developed to

indicate bumpy roads

• By Julia Evans

WORKING OUT how to

avoid potholes and bumpy

roads will soon easier with the

development of a website map.

The city council is working

on a new “roughness condition

map” which will show the

condition of each road, lane,

street and drive around the city.

Said city council planning

and delivery transport manager

Lynette Ellis: “The roughness

condition map will identify

how rough a road is, both as a

measurable number, and as a

description (eg good or poor).”

Ms Ellis said the technology

is used elsewhere in New

Zealand and there is no direct

connection between the map

and the earthquakes as the map

will be using recently measured

data.

“The driver for this is to share

factual information concerning

the transport network with the

community,” she said.

It will also be used to help

inform decision-making city

councillors and community

boards make with regard to

investing money and prioritising

infrastructure.

“Functionally this is using

data that council already holds,

and serving it onto the website

via new software that has been

made available via council’s

geospatial programme,” Ms Ellis

said.

The map is intended to be live

on the website later this year.

The state of roads around the

city remains a hot topic eight

years after the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

Last year’s city council Long

Term Plan was set to focus

on the “basics” – setting out

to prioritise improvements to

roads and footpaths alongside

wastewater infrastructure and

drinking water upgrades.

ROUGH: The city council is

working on developing a

map for its website to tell

residents which roads are in

the poorest condition such as

this damage on New Brighton

Rd.

Concern

over 360

Trail delays

• By Matt Slaughter

THE WAIT continues for a

walking track linking the Coastal

and Burwood Wards to be built.

The track will become part of

360 Trail, which links tracks all

over Christchurch if it is completed.

But the, 360 Trail committee

were fed up with waiting for the

track, which would run east from

the Bromley oxidation ponds to

be completed.

Members Judith Millar and Ken

Couling addressed the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board last

week, saying city council staff

had been telling them since 2017

that the project would go-ahead,

but very little progress had been

made.

Ms Millar said she was told

there had been told the project

manager had changed two times

since February and this had held

things up even further.

“Really, we don’t know where

we’re at with the project.

“We are a stakeholder and we

are not consulted or informed on

this stuff.”

When asked to comment on

the issue, the city council did not

respond.

•From page 1

THe gallery’s only other

income comes from the 20 per

cent commission it charges for

sales and teaching completed in

the gallery, and the $30 it collects

from members a year.

THe community board gave

$9000 to the gallery last year, but

members said

its financial

so it could

approving

the full

amount

asked for again this year.

Recreate co-ordinator Sue

Davidson said keeping art spaces

open in New Brighton was

challenging, but could have the

solution for safeguarding the

future of its arts scene.

Ms Davidson wanted an arts

centre in New Brighton and she

was in talks to make this happen.

At a community board

meeting last week, chairwoman

Kim Money recommended Ms

Davidson pitched her idea to

DCL.

Ms Davidson said she had

already reached out.

DCL manager of

communications and

engagement Cecilia Densham

said it supported the idea and

was happy to begin talks.

“DCL would support the

idea of a permanent artwork

venue for the New Brighton

community. DCL believes in

creative health and its effect on

well-being.”

New Brighton Business

and Landowners Association

chairwoman Rebecca Tavete said

she would support an arts centre

style space being developed if

this was given the go-ahead.

Ms Davidson, a South

Brighton resident of 20 years

said she had seen what artists in

New Brighton and surrounding

suburbs had to offer.

With support from Renew

has been co-ordinating spaces

Regeneration plan taken back by council

Fire rages, homes at risk

RESPONSIBILITY for the work

to develop a regeneration strategy

for Southshore and South New

Brighton will be taken back by

the city council.

Regenerate Christchurch was

originally charged with leading

the work on the strategy, but after

carrying out a review late last

year, it has recommended the city

council take over the project.

Last week

the city council

unanimously

agreed that was

the best way

forward.

“This project

Brendan

Anstiss

has moved more

slowly than

anyone would

have liked. We

have heard the concerns and

disappointment expressed by the

affected community about the

lack of progress,” said general

manager strategy and transformation

Brendan Anstiss.

“We have also received strong

feedback from residents in Southshore

and South New Brighton

that their immediate priority

is understanding and resolving

the outstanding impacts of the

earthquakes.

“The city council has therefore

agreed that the best way forward

is to split the project into two

separate projects, but have them

running simultaneously so we

can avoid delays and get things

back on track as quickly as possible,’’

Dr Anstiss said.

The first project will be an

urgent investigation into the estuary

edge to build a comprehensive

picture of the changes that

have occurred as a result of the

earthquakes and to identify any

outstanding community needs.

This work will include specific

actions and opportunities to

mitigate inundation and erosion

that addresses earthquake legacy.

“At the same time, city council

staff, together with the community,

will also do more detailed

planning on the adaptation

process for the area to respond to

climate change, so we can be very

clear about what is required over

the longer term for this project to

be a success,’’ Dr Anstiss said.

Staff will report back to city

council in August for decisions

on next steps for each project.

“While the leadership

of the project might have

changed, we haven’t lost sight

of the importance of putting

community at the centre of the

project. Council will be working

with the engagement approach

developed by members of the

Southshore and South New

Brighton communities – the

‘How Team’. There is an ongoing

commitment to work with

community groups and the wider

community as these projects

progress,” said Dr Anstiss.

The decision has been met with

strong support from the community

groups who were present

at the meeting.

“As a community we have

struggled to have the pre-existing

earthquake issues recognised.

We are very encouraged that this

damage has been acknowledged

today, and a pathway created to

affect repairs. We are overjoyed

with the city council’s decision

and we can now give our support

to working in partnership with

the council,” Southshore Residents

was made to make that journey

Said Coastal Ward city

outcome and very appreciative

of the cooperation and

Drop in

midge

numbers

•From page 1

“When we had those 29, 30 and 32

deg C days, we thought, here we go .

. . they’re not next door, because I’ve

checked with the neighbour and she

leaves the light on at night time,”

she said.

“The thing is, they’ve actually

disappeared.”

City council three waters and

waste operations manager Adam

Twose told the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board at its meeting

last week, midge numbers had

decreased by 36 per cent around the

Bromley oxidation ponds compared

to the midge season last year.

Mrs Profit said though this was

hard to believe, she had seen these

results first-hand in the few months

since summer.

“If that’s working, keep going,”

she said. “Where they’ve gone, I

wouldn’t know.”

The reduction was a result of the

city council changing the technique

used to kill midges around the oxidation

ponds.

Mr Twose said midge dredging,

which involved mechanically dragging

chains across the pond floor

where the midge lay their eggs, had

been much more effective than the

strategy used before, trying to kill

midges using chemicals.

He said dredging meant midges

were killed before they were born.

Mrs Profit said she was happy for

now, but would have to wait until

summer to see if midges would

return to her property.

Maybe now it is working, but the

thing is, how long is it going to work

for?”

Though there was work still be

done before midges were completely

wiped out, Mr Twose said signs

were positive for the next midge

season.

“I am confident we will see a better

improvement next year,” he said.

The city council has budgeted

$300,000 a year between 2018 and

2028 to go towards midge control

around the wastewater ponds.

BIG DREAMS: Caleb Gopal, a dance teacher of Parklands, is one of

three Christchurch teenagers heading to the World Hip Hop Dance

• By Matt Slaughter

CALEB GOPAL wants to be

one of the best dancers in the

Now, the 18-year-old

Parklands resident has a

chance to do so.

He is one of three teenagers

from the Team Cozy crew,

which has qualified for

the World Hip Hop Dance

Championship in Phoenix,

Arizona in the United States

in August.

Caleb will dance alongside

19-year-old Sam Richardson

and 15-year-old Chloe Wright.

They finished second in

the mini-crew category at the

Hip Hop International New

Zealand Championship in

Auckland last month and

were one of just three teams

from the category to qualify

for the worlds.

Caleb said dancing was his

life.

He balances his job as a

dance teacher and weekly

practices with the crew.

He believed Team Cozy

could go all the way to

win.

“We’ve wanted this for a

long time and now we’ve

finally got the opportunity,

so we’re ready to put in that

work. Really, it comes down

to how hard we want to work

and how hard you do work to

the result that you will get on

the day,” he said.

Preparation for the event

would involve up to three

He was excited to showcase

Team Cozy’s uniquely

“No one really knows what

The crew would have to

These would include break

He said for those who had

never seen these dance styles

before, they were all about

Mum and daughter find a new home

Fire rages, homes at risk

Miss Mihaka’s mother had

Theirs is one of the 14 new

two-bedroom units at the complex.

Miss Mihaka said this was a

living just a few months ago.

“It’s warm with double glazing,

“I’ve met all of the neighbours

“This is about building a community

Funding

boost for

mentors

A NEW Brighton mentoring

programme has received $5000

from an accounting firm.

The donation went to Youth

Alive Trust and was made by

Social Currency, a new business,

which donates 10 per cent of its

sales to programmes for at-risk

kids.

Thanks to the donation, a New

Brighton teenager with few

male role models now has a

mentor, New Brighton’s Paddy

Caffell.

The two get together each

week to talk, go to the gym, skate

and sometimes do community

projects.

Mr Caffell said he had some

very tough experiences as a

teenager himself and it was

one of the reasons he was

passionate about supporting

young people.

“I was being hit at home and

I never had the courage to tell

anyone. It’s difficult to see what’s

happening in the head of a

teenager, but I’m in a privileged

role of walking alongside someone

who I have built trust with,” Mr

Caffell said.

Competition to name takahē

LEE MEESE has chosen Poa as

the name for a takahē chick.

The Avonside resident’s name

suggestion was chosen as the best

of the 1800 submitted as part of

a competition run by Mitre 10 to

name the bird.

The six-month-old takahē is

the first chick of the season to be

named.

Ms Meese did plenty of

research before submitting Poa

as her suggestion.

It is short for poales,

the biological order of plant,

which includes grasses and

tussocks.

“The thing that stood out was

the grass and tussocks. That’s

roots for me, and where you

come from is part of who you

are. Poa was pulled from a plant

name, it felt strong for me and

fitting for a New Zealander –

male or female,” said Ms Meese.

“I’m really excited to be part

of something important, even if

it’s just choosing a chicks name.

Saving an endangered species is a

massive thing.”

Mitre 10 has been a sponsor

of the Takahē Recovery

Programme since 2005 and the

winning name was chosen by its

team.

“We were very pleased to

see the winner had made the

connection between tussock

grasslands to the takahē story.

One of the Takahē Recovery

Programme’s advocacy goals

is to increase public awareness

about the vital role this habitat

plays in takahē conservation and

we thought the name Poa was a

perfect fit,” said takahē advocacy

ranger Julie Harvey.

As part of the prize, Ms Meese

won a trip to Queenstown and

Fiordland to visit the Burwood

Takahē Centre.

Call for better bird protection

• By Matt Slaughter

MORE NEEDS to be done to

protect birdlife around the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary.

The Avon-Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust says dogs,

drones and

people continue

to be a threat

to the 118 bird

species, which

call the estuary

home, including

godwits.

Tim Lindley

The Coastal-

Burwood

Community Board will now

investigate what it can do to better

protect these birds after trust

members expressed concerns at a

meeting last week

The estuary became part of the

East Asian-Australasian Flyway

network last year, a network,

which protects migratory waterbirds

across wetlands in about 20

countries.

Trust member Tim Lindley

said the birds, which used the

estuary faced threats that people

may have not been aware of.

“Birds do see dogs as wolves

. . . it’s quite important that

they’re not disturbed by dogs.”

Mr Lindley said the estuary’s

proximity to the eastern suburbs

in both the Coastal-Burwood

and Linwood-Central-Heathcote

wards made protecting them

even more important.

“The birds stop feeding for 10

minutes when they are interrupted

by humans.

“Because this international

flyway is in an urban area, it’s

only going to get worse.

“It’s dinner time for the

birds and we need to keep it

that way.”

Board members agreed the

signage currently in place telling

people to be respectful of birds

when around the estuary needed

to be improved.

Board member Linda Stewart

suggested signage should give

more specific information on the

types of behaviour and activities

that disturbed birds and how

this could be avoided.

PROTECTION: (Clockwise) – Lesser knots, south island pied

oystercatchers and godwits are being disturbed according to

the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust.

Residents’

association

for Prestons

• By Matt Slaughter

A RESIDENTS’ association

in Prestons has been formally

established.

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board approved

the formation of the Prestons

Residents Association last week.

The association had existed

previously, but had not been

officially recognised under

the city council’s Residents’

Association Formation and

Recognition Policy.

Residents called for it for some

time and community board

members agreed this would create

a more active voice for an area,

which had been through a lot

since the earthquakes.

Board member Linda Stewart

was appointed to liaise with the

association and provide feedback

to the community board and city

council.

The association’s boundaries

include Prestons Rd, Marshland

Rd and Dunlops Rd and extends

to Lower Styx Rd, near Spencerville.

An information leaflet about

the purpose of the association and

its boundaries was delivered to

residents last month.

Quizmasters battle it out

quiz at Christchurch South

Pupils from schools across

last Tuesday and were tested on

spelling, grammar, abbreviations,

matching words with their

country of origin and dictionary

skills.

Selwyn House won the year 5

points out of a possible 100.

Their victory followed a

suspenseful tie-breaker with

Fendalton Open-Air School,

which came second with a score

of 94 points.

The St Martin’s School group

in third was not far off, with 93

points.

Selwyn House champions

Penelope Sutton, 8, Amelia West,

were ecstatic after their win.

Penelope said the quiz was

“nerve-racking but fun.”

“The tie-breaker was the hardest

REGENERATION: About 120 people got stuck in at the

community planting at the Styx Mill Conservation Reserve last

Sunday.

Styx Mill planting day

• By Jess Gibson

MORE THAN 1500 native trees

and shrubs were planted in the

Styx Mill Conservation Reserve

in Northwood last Sunday.

About 120 people volunteered

for the community planting

run by Trees for Canterbury,

including students, park rangers,

members of the Styx Living Laboratory

Trust, a scout group and

residents.

Trees for Canterbury project

co-ordinator Robin Stove said the

day went “fantastically.”

“It was great having people

from diverse backgrounds there.”

The main large species planted

were Kahikatea and Totara

trees and there was a mixture of

smaller trees like Ribbonwood,

Lacebark, Flax and Cabbage

trees, among others.

The seedlings were all sourced

and donated by Trees for Canterbury,

who gather the native

tree species from areas such as

Riccarton Bush.

Trees for Canterbury has been

planting in the reserve, as well as

other sites, for about 20 years as

part of a regeneration project to

plant two million native trees in

Canterbury.

So far, the group and its volunteers

have planted and/or donated

almost one million trees.

Mr Stove said the plantings are

a good way to help members of

the community take ownership of

their city.

“It is their city and they should

be involved in it,” he said.

Birthday celebrations for

red zone community garden

RICHMOND Community

Garden has celebrated its

second birthday in the

residential red zone.

On May 4, the Richmond

Community Garden

Trust held a birthday party to

show its appreciation to the

volunteers, organisations and

individuals who had supported

it or given their time and energy

to its projects.

“Without such support, we

would not be able to flourish

and the community would

not be able to gather, socialise,

make new connections and

learn whilst having fun,” said

Richmond Community Garden

co-founder Cathy Allden.

In 2017, the trust was issued

with a two-year lease

for one acre of red zone land

from Land Information New

Zealand.

It created a transitional community

space, floral garden,

fruit forest and edible native

garden in Richmond.

The lease was amended to

cover .8ha of land six months

later and extended by another

three years in June last year.

Volunteers contribute more

than 80 hours of work to the

garden every week, with several

groups using it regularly.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Richmond Community Garden celebrated its

second birthday in the residential red zone on May 4.

The history behind Mother’s Day

Founder

of the

Christchurch

Women’s Club

Toastmasters

Sheila

Hailstone

writes about

how Mother’s

Day began

History tells us celebrations

related to mothers have existed

throughout the world for

thousands of years, though

the Christian celebration of

Mothering Sunday was more

about the mother church than a

celebration of women.

What is probably unknown is

the woman who campaigned for

our modern version of Mother’s

Day would later denounce the

commercialisation of this event.

It took Anna Jarvis six years

of campaigning in the United

States to have a day set aside to

honour mothers or as she put it,

“the person who has done more

for you than anyone else in the

world.”

Her own mother, Ann Reeves

Jarvis, had been a peace activist

caring for the wounded in the

Civil War no matter their politics

or which side they fought for.

Then after the war, she began

clubs to address public health

HONOUR: It took Anna Jarvis six years of campaigning in the United States to have a day set aside

to honour mothers.

issues and helping women to

knowledgeably care for their

children.

When her mother passed

away Anna realised, in spite of

the positive impact women have

on society, their work for their

children and the community was

often overlooked.

Anna’s Mother’s Day was not a

commercial event, but was about

celebrating the achievements of

women and further reminding

them of their power and what can

be accomplished when women

and mothers come together for a

good cause.

Time has not diminished the

value of Anna’s message.

Mother’s Day has become

a date for launching political

causes. The wife of Martin Luther

King, Coretta used Mother’s

Day in 1968 to host a march

in support of underprivileged

women and children.

Then in the 1970s women’s

groups gathered on this day to

highlight the need for equal

rights for women and access to

child care.

On Friday at 12.30pm,

Christchurch Women’s Club

Toastmasters is holding an open

day at the Village Church on the

corner of Frank St and Papanui

Rd to celebrate the influence

of mothers and women in our

lives.

CWC Toastmasters supports

women to succeed in any

venture giving them the skills to

communicate their vision clearly

and with confidence.

Everyone is welcome to come

to this meeting.

In January, Ava narrowly

missed out on the under

surfing championships in

Taranaki.

However, since then

she has competed well

beyond her years winning

a number of nationally

ranked under 16, 18 and

20 titles.

She won two of the three

events on the Billabong

Grom Series between

January and March to

be crowned the under 16

OPEN DAYS

A supportive all-girl

learning environment

Selwyn House School offers a world-class

education with a talented teaching staff

and small class sizes which are set within a

future-focused, nurturing environment. An

extensive range of educational, sporting and

cultural opportunities are offered for girls in

Years 1 - 8.

A supportive all-girl learning environment

encourages girls to take risks without fear

of failure and develops their love of learning.

They become confident, compassionate,

articulate and determined young women who

have the values, skills, and attributes needed

to not only achieve their goals but to make a

difference in their communities. Our teachers

ensure girls are inspired and committed to

learning as they develop their unique way

of learning and achieving. The focus across

Years 1 - 8 is on the growth of the developing

girl encompassing intellectual, social, physical,

emotional, and cultural needs.

Selwyn House is committed to providing a

continuum of international education. The

combination of the International Baccalaureate

Primary Years Programme (PYP) and our

future-focused STEAM and Mechatronics

curriculum ensures girls are equipped to face

a continually changing world with confidence

and enthusiasm. We focus on instilling strong

foundations which can be successfully built

upon. Core learning in reading, writing and

mathematics is a priority. Specialist programmes

in Art, Creative Writing, Leadership,

Mechatronics, Music, Performing Arts,

Physical Education, Science, Spanish and

PEGASUS POST

Swimming play key roles to further enhancing

learning.

Selwyn House provides each girl with a

personalised learning experience. Each classroom

and specialist teacher has the time to

foster meaningful relationships with each student.

Due to our comprehensive learning environment,

our girls are highly skilled, stand

out among their peers and are prepared for a

successful transition to secondary school.

Selwyn House’s nurturing environment is

apparent in all aspects of the school. In our

modern and safe, family-oriented Boarding

House, girls are supported by dedicated staff

and tutors. Girls from across New Zealand

and internationally fondly call the Boarding

House, their ‘home away from home’ and easily

form a sisterhood with others.

We believe in the strength of tradition, the

promise of the future and the power of education.

SCHOLARSHIPS & SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

All new for Avonside

at Ōrua Paeroa

A new school, a

new location, and a

new uniform! What

a fabulous year for

Avonside Girls’ High

school as a new

chapter in the school’s

90 plus year history

is written this year.

Avonside Girls’ High

School moved into its new home on

Travis Road at the beginning of term

2, taking its traditions, culture, history

and values along with a focus on

working with every student to help her

identify her strengths and develop her

talents so that she can flourish in her

future.

Just over 1000 girls moved onto the

new site in Travis Road to experience

learning in New Zealand’s newest

secondary school buildings. The

campus which also includes a satellite

unit of Ferndale School, is New

Zealand’s first ever co-location of a state

girls’ school and a state boys’ school

sharing the same site and some key

facilities and yet delivering teaching

and learning within their own singlesex

learning environments.

One look inside the impressive

entrance foyer reveals an exciting

campus with fabulous facilities to

enhance learning for students.

In the front section of the school

lie the shared facilities, boasting the

reception and administrative centre

for both schools, a spacious library, a

cultural space, two theatres, a cafeteria

with indoor and outdoor seating, and

student kitchen facilities alongside a

commercial kitchen for teaching senior

Hospitality courses.

The design of the school then

separates into two separate schools each

designed around its own courtyard.

The school is organised by learning

areas, denoting the school’s support

of subject discipline knowledge

and skills, yet with adjacencies that

provide opportunities for learning to

be connected across learning areas for

students.

Avonside supports the development

of the whole student with a strong

ako programme delivered within a

vertical form structure and wonderful

opportunities for involvement beyond

classroom learning time. The superb

facilities in the new campus certainly

enhance those opportunities for our

students.

Avonside Girls’ High School has

embraced this opportunity to provide

this exciting new brand of 21st century

style single-sex education – the best of

both worlds!

We welcome interested students and

their families to come and visit the

campus on our Open Night.

Shirley Boys’ High

School at Ōrua Paeroa

Finally after 8 years of

unstinting effort, Shirley

Boys’ is in its new home,

one that features state

of the art facilities for

teaching and learning in

the 21st Century.

The new campus

features a Performing

Arts Centre, full size all

weather turf, sports fields, the largest school

gymnasium in the city as well as traditional

classrooms and modern flexible spaces

designed to meet the needs of all of its 1250

young Shirley men.

Shirley Boys’ High School,

Kiwi Soul Global Vision

At Shirley Boys’ High School, students

are encouraged to participate in a vast

array of sporting and cultural activities

and in all of these areas they are expected

to prepare themselves for action and

success on the world stage, while also

being encouraged to retain and strengthen

their own cultural roots.

Shirley Boys’ High School encourages

students to strive for personal excellence.

Learning occurs both inside and outside

the classroom, reflecting the desire of the

school to focus on teaching the whole

person to ensure a lifelong desire for

self-improvement. At Shirley Boys’ this

is known as “BTB – Better than Before”.

BTB leads to achievement, which can

be as modest as getting fit for a sport or

improving a test score or learning to sing

in a choir. BTB can also be as spectacular

as achieving a Premier New Zealand

Academic Scholar Award (awarded to the

Top 10 academic students in NZ).

We look forward to welcoming

prospective students and families to our

Open Night, Thursday 23 May at 6.30-

8.30pm.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Tyres, rims and even

great coffee

Word of mouth is the best

recommendation for any business, and there

is a raft of customers happy to recommend

JCM Direct Tyres in Middleton. The

independent, family-owned and operated

business supplies tyres, mags and rims and

it is clear from their feedback that they

provide ‘outstanding customer service,’

‘really know what they are doing,’ and even

provide ‘tasty coffee.’

Reviews like these are hard-won, with

the emphasis being on making sure they

go the extra mile to really meet the needs

of the client. As an independent dealer,

they are not tied to a specific brand.

Instead, they will look at your vehicle,

your budget and your driving style to

provide you with what you need instead

of what the franchise wants you to have.

This can be brand new tyres such as Pirelli,

Continental, GT Radial and Nankang, or

high end, almost-new second hand tyres

in mint condition, often the same brand

names as the new options. The JCM team

wants to know their customers are leaving

them with their vehicles, from caravans to

utes, that are safe on the roads.

They will give you their honest opinion

and expertise about what you need too.

It could be more cost effective in the long

run to spend a little more a quality tyre and

reduce the risk of punctures on the Garden

City’s rebuild roads, and if you do have a

puncture, they can repair it quickly and

efficiently.

It is not only tyres – they supply rims

from the 1930s to the present day. If you

are lucky enough to own a classic vehicle,

you will know how difficult it can be to

find authentic parts, and the JCM team will

help you source what you need.

They also provide alloy wheels, spare

wheels plus wheel and tyre combo packages

to make their excellent products even more

affordable. They are even able to help you

with finance options.

Open six days a week, you can find

them at 8c Birmingham Drive on the

corner with Hands Road. Check them

out on Facebook.com/JCMDirect, or

visit JCMDirect.co.nz to see what their

family can do to help your family.

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.”

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.”
