Residents call for plan to

reduce Hornby’s 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.

from the editor’s desk

‘WE’RE MONITORING concerns and

will develop solutions if required.’

That’s the rather open ended city council

response to the clogged Hornby roading

system (page 1).

They might have well said: Well, we

know it is chaos, the traffic queues explode in the morning, late

in the afternoon and at various other times of the day but there’s

nothing we can really do about it.

The Greater Hornby Residents’ Association wants more

money invested in the suburb’s roading infrastructure, and has

gone to council to try and get it.

But it looks like we will have to wait until the major southern

motorway and Halswell Junction projects are completed to see

what the affect on traffic congestion is.

In the meantime be patient.

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.

MAINTENANCE PLAN

City council staff are meeting

with potential contractors

to gain quotes on a future

maintenance plan for Kyle Park

in relation to the fenced-off

area. Work will include the

removal and use of mulch

behind the velodrome which

has been a concern to the

community. Last month, the

city council did extra line

trimming of the vegetation

that runs along the railway

boundary.

EQUIPMENT REMOVED

The old playground equipment

at Upper Riccarton Domain on

the Yaldhurst Road frontage

has now been removed due to

health and safety concerns. The

area has been re-sown with

grass and will then be able to be

used by the public.

EcoDrop Parkhouse Rd,

locations which are part of a

battery collection trial run by

the city council. People can

dispose of unwanted batteries

safely in drop boxes so they

can be recycled appropriately,

saving valuable components

RESPECTED: Primary school teacher Debbie Bergin has had a large farewell from St

Bernadette’s School.

Leaving celebration for teacher

A CELEBRATION has been

held to recognise the valuable

contribution a long-serving

teacher has made to St

Bernadette’s School and church.

Debbie Bergin has left St

Bernadette’s and has now moved

into her new role as a primary

teacher at St James School in Aranui.

The celebration was organised

by her former colleagues and

friends and was held at the

Catherine McAuley Centre at

Villa Maria College.

Father Paulo Filoialii held a

mass, which was followed by

entertainment from Pasifika

students, speeches and an

afternoon tea.

Former principal Maureen

Moore said Ms Bergin is a

highly respected teacher and

many speakers at the ceremony

thanked her for her commitment

to the children and families she

had worked alongside.

The celebration was attended

by more than 80 guests including

Sisters of Mercy who taught with

Ms Bergin, principals, former

colleagues, parishioners, family,

friends, past pupils and their

families.

•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.

Hornby traffic issues

Chalmers St, Shands Rd, Main

Daily traffic count figures

vehicles a day, Shands

Rd 33,400 and Chalmers

St to Main South Rd has

3500 vehicles.

Mr Peters said

right turning arrows

are needed for the

intersections of Amyes

Rd and Springs Rd,

Carmen Rd and

Chalmers St and Carmen and

Waterloo Rd.

But Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

chairman Mike Mora said he

did not want to see a “knee-jerk”

reaction to the problem until the

southern motorway opens.

City councillor Jimmy

Chen said the extension of

the motorway and the South

Express Major Cycle Route will

be important in helping with the

issue.

He said city council staff will

also conduct a traffic count

and consider installing a speed

bump on Waterloo Rd between

Carmen and Gilberthorpes Rd.

It is due to concerns from

residents about the number of

heavy vehicles using the road.

HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of James Gough’s

idea? Email your views to Georgia,Oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

Gough wants to look at selling libraries

• By Julia Evans

POTENTIAL mayoral candidate

and Fendalton Ward city

councillor James Gough wants to

investigate the possibility of selling

off libraries and service centres.

Cr Gough said a conversation

should be had over whether

suburban libraries and service

centres, excluding Turanga, would

be a better asset if they were sold

to private investors, with the city

council as long-term lease holders.

The value of city council’s library

and service centre network

is $65.3 million.

“It would realise significant

revenue in the short-term to

assist with paying down debt

and reducing rates – but it would

also be essential that council

expenditure is significantly

reduced too,” he said.

However, Cr Gough said it

would have to be paired with

pared back capital and operational

spending to have the best

outcome to reduce rates.

“The proposal would need to be

a hand-in-glove approach where

increased revenue in the shortterm

was coupled with a significant

reduction in capital and

operational spending as well.”

Cr Gough has been a proponent

of asset sales.

But in September the city

council voted against a proposed

review into how much could

ASSETS: (Clockwise) – Fendalton, Bishopdale, Shirley and Upper Riccarton libraries.

be made from selling stakes in

businesses such as the Lyttelton

Port Company and broadband

provider Enable.

It is a conversation starter echoed

by the Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce in its

submission to the city council’s

Annual Plan based off a similar

model in Perth.

“I think there are opportunities

for the council to take a good, hard

look at some of the assets that they

do own and work out whether

or not they need to own them or

whether there is a different model

for that operation,” chief executive

Leeann Watson said.

Ms Watson said it should be

looked at it on a case by case basis

– there should not be a “hard

and fast” model, which was supported

by Mayor Lianne Dalziel.

“I used the example of the

Linwood Library being in the

Eastgate Mall and the fact that

we jointly own this building with

Ngai Tahu,” Ms Dalziel said.

“It is enabling of people to

access the library in the same

hours that the mall is open.”

Cr Gough is considering running

for mayor.

“I’ll probably make an announcement

in the near future,”

he said.

The People’s Choice chairman

Keir Leslie, which opposes asset

sales, said libraries were a core

council business.

“The ideal that we would sell

off libraries in our own city . . .

would be a bad deal for the ratepayer

in the long run.”

Chase Commercial real estate

agent Brendan Chase said the

buildings would be “highly

saleable and sought after” with

a reliable and safe tenant in the

city council.

“The question to ask is are

those libraries going to be required

in the long-term, if they

are you’ll pay for them over and

over again,” Mr Chase said.

Cr Gough said the projected

rates increase of about 50 per

cent in the next 10 years is an

unsustainable “house of cards”

that would “epically fail.”

“Average incomes are not rising

anywhere near this quickly

so the system is fundamentally

broken.”

Dancers off to nationals

• By Matt Slaughter

CALEB GOPAL wants to be one

of the best dancers in the world.

Now, the 18-year-old former

Middleton Grange School

student has a chance to do so.

He is one of three teenagers

in the Team Cozy crew, which

has qualified for the World Hip

Hop Dance Championship in

Phoenix, Arizona in the United

States in August.

He 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.

Attending the world

championships had been a

life-long dream for Caleb and the

crew.

He said he would be proud

regardless of the result they

achieved.

“No matter where we come,

last or first place, it’s an

achievement stepping on that

stage . . . either way, we’re going

to be stoked and grateful for the

opportunity.”

Preparation for the event

would involve up to three

practices a week and extra

practices as the event drew closer,

said Caleb.

He was excited to showcase

Team Cozy’s uniquely

Christchurch flavour to the rest

of the world.

“No one really knows what

to expect when it comes down

The crew would have to

showcase three styles of hip hop

dancing during its routine.

These would include break

dancing, house and new school

swag.

He said for those who had

never seen these dance styles

before, they were all about “just

feeling good.”

Caleb said his team would

fund some of the cost of the trip

themselves, but was looking

for sponsors to ease the cost of

getting to Arizona.

A Givealittle page had also

been set up for those who wanted

to help.

Association

to remain

informal

• By Jess Gibson

THE REDWOOD Business

and Residents’ Association will

remain informal until it gains

more momentum.

There were 16 attendees at

the group’s second meeting last

week, including business owners,

residents and Papanui-Innes

Community Board members.

Donna Brenssell was involved

in starting the association up last

month.

She said members would like

more people to get involved and

for the group to decide on specific

issues or goals they would

like to work on before officiating

the association. One issue which

was discussed at the meeting was

the lack of proposed planning

for Redwood in the city council’s

Long Term Plan.

Mrs Brenssell said the group

also thought about focussing on

the impact that the Northern

Corridor will have.

She said the group will continue

to meet monthly and will

appoint members to roles once

the group strengthens.

Dogs have their day at The Hub Hornby

THE HUB Hornby hosted a

special shopping evening to

celebrate Mother’s Day for pet

owners.

The public could take their

well-behaved pets to the mall

from 6-9pm on Thursday, with

some stores also allowing them to

come in and shop.

Said centre manager Jason

Marsden: “So far the response to

the idea has been very positive.

We have hosted several successful

pet shopping evenings in the

past.”

The pet industry in New

Zealand is worth $1.8 billion

annually with Kiwis second

only to the United States for pet

ownership.

The rise of house prices has

seen many millennials delaying

having children so both partners

can continue to work whilst

they save a deposit or service a

mortgage. Traditional babies are

being replaced with “fur babies”

and these pets are receiving a lot

of care and attention. Shops who

Global competition for piper

• By Jess Gibson

A FULL-BLOWN line-up of

competitions is in store for

award-winning piper Campbell

Wilson.

The 16-year-old St Andrew’s

College student will

take part in the Colin Craig

Claidmeamh’mor solo piping

competition in Palmerston North

on Saturday.

The competition is an invitational

event for the top pipers in

New Zealand.

Campbell will then travel to

Dunedin two weeks later to

compete in the annual Queen’s

Birthday solo competitions,

where he will compete in the A

grade.

After that, his skills will take

him to Scotland in August

to compete in under-18

and under-23 age groups of

competition in Oban and

Inverness.

Campbell said he is “very excited”

to return to Scotland.

He has been once before

when he competed with the St

Andrew’s College Pipe Band at

the World Pipe Band Championships

and stayed on for two weeks

afterwards to compete in solo

competitions.

Since Campbell began piping

when he was nine-years-old, he

has achieved a long list of highlights

in his career.

He made history at the

Hastings Highland Games

in April when he became the

youngest ever winner of the

New Zealand Gold Medal for

Piobaireachd.

Campbell was named New

Zealand Young Piper of the Year

in October, is titled the youngest

ever winner of the Silver Chanter

March, Strathspey and Reel event

and won the under-21 New Zealand

Championship Hornpipe

and Jig in January.

During his Scotland trip in

August, Campbell will be travelling

his father, Greg Wilson, who

doubles as his tutor.

Mr Wilson is classified as one

of the top pipers in the world.

He has won 14 Gold Clasp

Piobaireachd competitions – an

event which pipers can only

compete in if they have won the

New Zealand Gold Medal for

TALENT: Greg

Wilson and his

son, Campbell

Mr Wilson has also had victory

at Bratach Gorm in London

three times, has won the premier

double march, Strathspey and

Reel multiple times, and has also

been New Zealand Solo Piping

Champion on multiple occasions,

to name a few.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity

to travel such a great

distance doing what I love with

my number one role model. He

is a world class piper, and he is

an absolutely wonderful teacher,”

Campbell said.

Mr Wilson said it is “very satisfying”

seeing Campbell do well

at piping.

“I’m absolutely proud of him,

he’s done very well from a young

age,” said Mr Wilson.

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.

Former UC stars represent New Zealand

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER ST Andrew’s College

hooker Shilo Klein and former

Christ’s College centre Dallas

McLeod have both been selected

to represent the New Zealand

side at next month’s World

Rugby Under-20 Championship.

The pair were named in the

squad to travel to Argentina to

play in the tournament along

with five other Crusaders region

players – Cullen Grace, Leicester

Faingaanuku, Fergus Burke,

Fletcher Newell and Tamaiti

Williams.

Klein and McLeod both learnt

of their selection following

their second place finish

at the Oceania Rugby U20

Championship in Australia

earlier this month.

“You work for a long time

to try to give yourself an

opportunity like this. To get it

you’re proud and I’m just really

grateful to all the people who

have helped me get to this point.

I’m really excited to try and put

in some performances that I

can be really proud of,” said

Klein.

The 20-year-old pointed out

his coaches at St Andrew’s as

the major influence in installing

a belief he could achieve big

things in rugby if he put his

mind to it.

“Year 13 was a bit of a turning

point for me. I decided I was

going to put my foot down and

really have a crack at it,” he said.

The High School Old Boys

player got his first taste of rugby

at the Sumner club before

attending St Andrew’s. His drive

to succeed is something he hopes

will go well beyond the U20

world cup.

“It’s a dream of mine to be a

Crusader and be an All Black,

they’re always long term goals

that I keep in the back of my

head because they motivate me

to get up every day and train.”

Meanwhile, McLeod’s roots

lay in Methven. The 20-year-old

played for the Methven club

before receiving a scholarship to

play at Christ’s in his final year of

secondary school.

“That definitely helped and

then getting the opportunity to

get into the Crusaders academy

is probably the main thing that’s

helped me get access to good

coaches and to have a lot of

other people around me who are

chasing the same thing,” said

McLeod.

Last year, McLeod was named

Canterbury’s under-19 player of

the year.

assemble in Mount Maunganui

“I think South Africa and

100 caps for St Thomas footballer

• By Gordon Findlater

ST THOMAS of Canterbury

College footballer Tom Stewart

accomplished the rare feat of

bringing up 100 games for the

first XI last week.

The occasion was made

even sweeter for the holding

midfielder who scored a

hat-trick in his side’s 8-0

victory over rivals St Bede’s

College in the Connetics premier

first XI secondary school

competition.

Following the game he was

presented a plaque and trophy to

mark the occasion by principal

Steve Hart.

“It was a pretty special

occasion . . . It was an extra

incentive to have a good game, so

I was happy to end up scoring a

hat-trick,” said Stewart.

The St Thomas’ captain

became just the third player to

bring up 100 caps for the first XI,

following in the footsteps

of Mike Killick and Andy

Steel.

Killick was on hand to witness

Stewart’s milestone, due to being

the referee for the match.

Stewart will become the most

capped player in the school’s

history if he can pass the 115

game tally currently held by

Steel – who is currently the

chairman of the school’s board

of trustees.

“He’s a very mature and aware

player, he does a lot of stuff to

work on his game in his own

time and builds up confidence

in the guys around him,” said St

Thomas’ coach Jacob Allen.

The biggest highlight during

Stewart’s 100-game career

came last year when St Thomas

defeated Burnside 2-1 in the

Connetics first XI final.

“It was amazing, we had the

whole school chanting our name

and when the final whistle went

they all ran onto the pitch, it was

a sea of blue,” Stewart said.

MILESTONE:

Tom Stewart has

become just the

third player in St

Thomas history to

play 100 games

for the first XI.

He was also part of the St

Thomas futsal team which

won the New Zealand

secondary schools futsal

championships in Wellington in

March.

In year 8, he scored the

SPORT

winning goal for his St Thomas

team at the Koru Games against

Rolleston School.

The same year he made his

first XI debut at just 12 against St

Kevin’s College from Oamaru –

a match he also scored in.

Last year he was part of the

New Zealand Secondary Schools

team which toured the United

States.

He hopes he may become

more familiar with the US in the

coming years with the goal of

earning a football scholarship to

play at a college next year.

Before then he hopes to

replicate a run like St Thomas

achieved at the 2017 national

secondary school tournament

where they finished fourth.

With potentially 20 to 25

games expected to be played this

year he stands a good chance

of becoming St Thomas’ most

capped player, if he can stay

fit.

St Thomas have won the

opening two rounds of

this year’s Connetics premier

first XI secondary school

competition.

Tomorrow they face

SIX YEARS of

determination and hard

work has paid off for

14-year-old tennis player

Alkmini Giannakogiorgou

of Papanui.

The year 10 Burnside

High School student has

been awarded a $1000

scholarship by the Burnside

Park Tennis Club for

showing potential and

demonstrating positive

values.

The junior scholarship is

a way to acknowledge New

Zealand ranked junior

members and give them

an opportunity to travel to

gain further experiences.

“Tennis was the only

sport that wasn’t driven

by my desire to win but

by the way it made me feel

when I was on the court.

Jeff Brightwell, my tennis

coach, gave me a real sense

of purpose including setting

small goals along the

way,” Alkmini said.

Alkmini practices for

four hours daily, which

has earned results including

placing fourth at the

nationals, being selected

for Canterbury representative

teams and winning

regional tournaments.

Later this year she

plans to take her tennis

to another level as she

travels to Germany with

her coach to train and play

on clay.

“By learning to play on a

different surface and train

with a different intensity I

will be opened up to new

aspects of the game that

will improve my playing

style,” Alkmini said.

“I love this sport with

all my heart and I am determined

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

European

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.”

GRENADIER

• 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.”
