Fan-bloody-tastic being midge free

• By Matt Slaughter

JANET PROFIT had been

battling a midge problem on her

property for 11 years.

Now, the Bromley resident

says she feels “fan-bloody-tastic”

to be midge-free.

Mrs Profit told Pegasus Post in

February midges were plaguing

her Shortland St section near

the Bromley wastewater treatment

plant’s oxidation ponds.

It was common for her dog to

come in covered in midges and

she couldn’t eat outside without

getting a mouthful of them.

She said she had been going

back and forth with the city

council for more than a decade

to try and fix the problem, but

nothing had worked until now.

Residents

call for plan

to reduce

traffic woes

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HORNBY’S long-standing

transport woes are unlikely to end

anytime soon.

The city council confirmed it

currently has no projects planned,

in spite of residents calling for

congestion at peak times to be

alleviated.

The Greater Hornby Residents’

Association highlighted the issue

in its submission to the Annual

Plan, asking the city council

to invest more into its roading

infrastructure.

Chairman Marc Duff

said it wanted to see an

acknowledgement from the

city council that Hornby’s

traffic had increased significantly

since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake and to find out if

there was a plan in place to deal

with it.

But a city council spokesman

said while there are no specific

projects to date, it is monitoring

concerns and will develop

solutions if required.

“Some of the traffic through

Hornby central will drop with

the opening of the Christchurch

Southern Motorway Stage 2 by the

New Zealand Transport Agency,”

he said.

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.

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

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.

there.

NEW CHANGING ROOM

A new changing facility has

been proposed for Sumner

Beach. The planned site for the

facility is on The Esplanade,

near the existing toilet block.

It will be made from stainless

steel and will have four separate

changing cubicles with a rubber

mat floor. Public submissions

close on May 27 and can be

made on the city council’s Have

No more midges

•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.

•From page 1

A city council spokesman said

Hornby had also experienced

far less damage to infrastructure

compared to other parts of the

city.

In 2011, the suburb’s population

was 8370. By 2018, it had

grown to 9340.

Mr Duff said there is some

scepticism as to whether the new

motorway will cause traffic in

Hornby to drop, as cars travelling

in from Rolleston already

cut through Springs Rd before

linking up to stage one of the

motorway.

In the association’s submission

to the city council, he

highlighted a recent report from

The Salvation Army which interviewed

Hornby residents.

It said: “Hornby needs help as

well as the other side of

town

. . . this area is growing

too fast. It’s becoming a

bottleneck.

“The influx of new

residents, businesses and

activity since the earthquakes

has added greater

stress to our roads and

surrounding infrastructure.”

Mr Duff’s concern has been

backed by residents’ association

member Mark Peters, who

described roads such as Amyes

Rd becoming a “car park” in

rush hour.

Chalmers St, Shands Rd, Main

South Rd have also been identified

as roads needing improvement

for congestion.

Daily traffic count

figures show Amyes Rd

has about 13,600 vehicles

a day, Shands Rd 33,400

and Chalmers St to

Main South Rd has 3500

vehicles.

turning arrows are needed for

the intersections of Amyes Rd

and Springs Rd, Carmen Rd and

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.

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.

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.

Mum and daughter find a new home

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Slaughter

ESCAPING A difficult

relationship left Doreen Mihaka

and her 17-year-old daughter

homeless.

Miss Mihaka’s mother had

recently died, so the pair were

forced to sleep in a car in the

middle of winter for three weeks

before finding emergency accommodation.

They had to share a room and

stayed there for six months.

Now, they have a home at

Housing New Zealand’s new

complex at Eveleyn Couzins Ave

in Richmond.

She said this was life-changing.

“We’ll be here forever . . . the

home that we’re in now, we can

actually call it home. We’re not

going anywhere.”

Theirs is one of the 14 new twobedroom

units at the complex.

Miss Mihaka said this was a

world apart from the Barrington

property she was living in just a

few months ago.

“It’s warm with double glazing,

really, really warm. We’ve got

our own spaces, she’s got her

room where she’s got her TV and

games all set up and I’ve got my

space downstairs here.

“We don’t have to share the

same bed, we don’t have to share

the same room. We’ve got our

own stuff.”

The new homes complete the

couldn’t afford internet.

After their previous plan became

too expensive, the Linwood

residents were thrown a lifeline.

They are one of a number of

families across Christchurch, who

have received free wireless broadband

as part of a programme to

help those who can’t afford it.

The programme was a partnership

between Variety, the Children’s

Charity, and 2degrees and

was also being rolled out to 36

new development, which also

includes 23 one-bedroom units

and a large common room.

Their new living conditions

would allow Miss Mihaka

and her daughter, who was

completing tertiary study, to get

families with children at Bromley

School.

Constance said this would

make a big difference for her children

Chelsea, Nevaeh, Wairua-

Terehia and her husband Dan.

She said school had been hard

for her children without internet

access and they used to have to

go to the library to get homework

done.

“It’s just hard because everything’s

done online.”

She said having access to internet

again would help her family

move forward in life.

on with life.

“I think our lives will be

changed in a good way now compared

to what I was in for years.

The change is going to be good

for us in the long-run as well.”

“It means a lot to me because

“It just takes a bit of the hassle

off . . . it’s good for us because,

with school work for the kids,

they can do projects.

“My husband wants to start

a business eventually . . . it just

helps to get our own stuff sorted,

goals that we want to get sorted

and we’ve got quite a few.”

her family are back online

thanks to a new initiative

me and my daughter have somewhere

we can call home, actual

home.”

Residents and neighbours

came together with Housing

New Zealand staff last month

to celebrate the opening of the

new homes.

Miss Mihaka said some of

her new neighbours had been

through their own struggles and

a real sense of togetherness had

grown as a result.

“I’ve met all of the neighbours

now and everybody’s happy and

excited and they kind of came

from similar backgrounds too.”

“This is about building a community

for our people, but it’s

about building a community for

Richmond and Eveleyn Couzins

as well,” said Housing New

Zealand area manager Fraser

Benson.

“With this space, it’s about

making sure there aren’t two

separate communities. We want

our people to interact with each

other and I can already see that’s

happening, so it’s fantastic.”

Rāpaki marks 150 years

RĀPAKI CHURCH celebrated

its 150th anniversary last week.

More than 200 people

gathered for a special service

to commemorate the historic

church, which opened in

1869.

Matua Douglas Couch, who

grew up in Rāpaki during the

1930s and 40s, said the church

was a central meeting point for

the community in those days.

“We used to go there when

the church bell rang. Sometimes

we were down on the beach and

wouldn’t hear the bell and if you

got home at dinner and hadn’t

been to church, you’d be in

trouble,” he said.

The small weatherboard

church, which can hold 80

people, has recently undergone a

significant restoration.

The church was closed

following the earthquakes

and the restoration work began

last year after funding was

received.

The restoration included

repairs to the south sanctuary

wall as well as the replacement of

the rotten main window

with a replica of an earlier

window based on an old

photograph.

The steeple was rebuilt

splash in Florida

FOUR YEARS of hard

work in the pool and in

study has seen former

Cashmere High School

student Pia Hulley scoop

the top student athlete

leadership prize at the

University of West Florida.

At the 31st annual

Student Leadership awards

in Pensacola in the United

States Hulley was awarded

the Dr Pat Wentz Student

Athlete Leadership

Award.

THe prize is presented

to an athlete from among

the 12,000 strong student

cohort, who demonstrates

innovative, motivational

leadership, impacting their

academic, athletic and

community environments.

Hulley, 23, who is

studying a Bachelor of

Science majoring in

exercise Science, moved

from Christchurch to

take up a swimming

scholarship with the

University in 2015.

Since then she’s been

three-time honourable

mention All American in

the pool, been scholar All

American four times, and

All American once.

The All American

programme is a US-wide

student athlete recognition

programme that honours

student athletes who

have performed well

academically while

regularly competing for

their university.

Hulley made UWF

history this year when

she became one of only

two members of the

university’s swimming

team to participate in

the National Collegiate

Athletic Association

Championships in all

four years of their UWF

careers.

She holds seven of

UWF’s top 10 times for her

backstroke swims.

Hulley said it was a

huge honour to receive the

Dr Pat Wentz leadership

award.

“UWF athletics, and the

swim and dive team have

allowed me to experience

and achieve so much

during my four years at

West Florida. My biggest

achievement as an Argo

is being a team mate, so

I am extremely grateful

that my efforts to support

and motivate each of these

swimmers has made an

impact.”

The Dr Pat Wentz

award was well-deserved

recognition for Hulley who

has been swimming since

she was a toddler.

While in Florida, she

has consistently recorded

high academic marks,

while also regularly

mentoring younger

swimmers in the UWF

swim team.

Before leaving for

Florida, Hulley swam

with the Riccarton-based

Wharenui Swimming

Club.

While Hulley won’t

be spending five hours a

day in the pool anymore,

she does still has a few

more months of academic

studies and an internship

to finish before she

graduates later this year.

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

European

Car Owners

We can identify ANY electrical

®

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.
