Schools get creative at hot pools site

UNCANNY: Isla Macdonald, 12, of South New Brighton School, was one of 24 pupils from three schools in the east who

decorated a hoarding around the New Brighton hot salt water pools site. She painted her teacher Kurt Soares (right). New

Brighton artist Kyla K briefed the pupils and told them to create something which represented “what they love about

BRIAN WARD wants to track

down a man who he says helped

to save his life.

Last Tuesday, the 68-year-old

was returning home to Shirley

after a biopsy at Christchurch

Hospital on the No 60

Hillmorton to Southshore bus

with his wife Glenys Ward.

Said Mr Ward: “I completely

went out to it. Everything was all

white.”

Mr Ward stooped in his seat,

nearly falling to the ground.

Mrs Ward tried to support

him, but couldn’t do this by

herself.

This was when a man in

his mid-20s, who Mrs Ward

remembered as having a black

cap, facial hair, a partner and two

young toddlers, came to her aid,

helped to stop Mr Ward from

falling, get to his feet and back to

consciousness.

from the editor’s desk

THE LOCAL body election battle is

starting to heat up in the eastern suburbs.

Last week we revealed businessman Phil

Mauger will make a bid to topple longstanding

Burwood Ward councillor Glenn

Livingstone.

Today on page 5, we report on another hopeful who has

his sights set on council. Kelly Barber is having a crack at the

Coastal Ward, held by another long-time councillor David East.

Nominations for council and community board positions

formally open on July 19, so it is highly likely other contenders

will also join the race.

Mauger lives in Avonhead, a fair way from the Burwood

Ward, and Barber is in Prestons, outside of the Coastal Ward.

That situation could be an Achilles heel for both.

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

DAVID EAST RESIGNATION

City councillor David East has

resigned as the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board liaison to

the South Brighton Residents’

Association. He left the role due

to personal commitments. No

decision has been made on his

replacement.

STOLEN: Security camera footage of the caravan being stolen from a property on Pages Rd in Aranui. The caravan’s owner

Bevan Allington has received Facebook messages possibly from the thieves.

Caravan ransom attempt after theft

• By Matt Slaughter

AN ARANUI man had a

caravan stolen from his property

then received Facebook messages

urging him to buy it back.

After Bevan Allington posted

security camera footage of two

men in hi-vis vests going onto

his Pages Rd property and taking

the 1977 Zephyr caravan, he

started receiving messages.

Mr Allington had also asked

for information about the

whereabouts of the caravan.

Said the messages from an

account called Robin: “I can tell

you what you need to know but

it comes at a price and it’s not

cheap. Has to be now, you have

to be alone and I’m not far from

you.”

“You’ve only got until 10 past

10 to call me and until 20 past

10 to get to me,” said the next

message.” He then received

messages later that night from a

woman who said she had heard

the caravan was being offered for

$2000, but did not want to report

this to police for safety reasons.

Mr Allington did not reply to

any of the messages from Robin.

Robin then tried to call Mr

Allington seven times through

Facebook messenger. He didn’t

answer. Police are investigating

the theft and say they are

following leads.

•Anyone with

information should phone

the police on 363 7400

or Crimestoppers anonymously

on 0800 555 111.

GRANTS HANDED OUT

The Ōtautahi Rugby Club has

received $3000 to go towards a new

car park adjacent to Bower Park on

New Brighton Rd. It will provide

safer parking for families, supporters

and visiting teams. A $1696

grant was also given to Scouting

New Zealand Burwood to insure its

clubrooms on Travis Rd. The grants

were from the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board discretionary

response fund.

Barber enters different kind of race

Fire rages, homes at risk

Gearing up

to run for

Coastal seat

• Matt Slaughter

KELLY BARBER is no stranger

to running – but the 15-time

Coast to Coast competitor

is about to enter a race of a

different kind.

The 55-year-old medical

supplies salesman from Prestons

will challenge incumbent

Coastal Ward city

councillor David

East in October’s

local body

elections.

Last week

Pegasus Post

David East

reported

well-known

businessman, independent

candidate Phil Mauger, will run

against incumbent Burwood

Ward People’s Choice city

councillor Glenn Livingstone.

Mr Barber will also run for

a seat on the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board if he misses

out on the city council seat.

Mr Barber, who will campaign

under the People’s Choice

YOU DECIDE: Kelly Barber will run for the Coastal Ward city

council seat in October’s local body elections.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

banner, said he wants to bring

a more personable approach to

the ward and make listening to

residents his No 1 priority.

“I’m not sure that the people

are being heard. I think I would

look to have higher visibility to

represent what the people of the

east want on council,” he said.

He said the Coastal Ward has

been a sports playground for him

for 35 years and it should become

more of a hub for outdoor events.

He would start by advocating

for the City2Surf route to be

adjusted so it runs through New

Brighton.

“Our City2Surf should be back

to Brighton,” he said.

“I’ve been all over the South

Island, all over New Zealand

to multi-sport races and why

do I visit these places? Because

there’s a multi-sport race on.

So if there’s something on in

Brighton, the people will go to

it, it will bring people in, it will

bring life to the place.”

Mr Barber said protecting the

area’s environment from the

effects of climate change is also

crucial.

“There’s going to be a lot of

talk about sea level rise and that

sort of thing in the future and I

think that needs to be managed

really well, particularly for the

people of Southshore.”

He also said challenging

people’s perceptions around New

Brighton requires faster, more

open-minded decision-making.

Mr Barber said it will be a

challenge to beat Cr East, who

has been at the city council table

for two terms.

Cr East received 7470 votes in

2013 when he was first voted in

and retained his seat again in

2016 with 2951 votes.

Cr East said he has the

experience to ensure progress

continues to be made in the

ward.

“I would like to think that in

my time representing this area

that I have been instrumental in

achieving some good outcomes

for the ward and I’ve got a bit of

unfinished business that I really

want to carry on with.”

He said his unfinished

business includes fixing roads,

taking a serious, but sensible,

approach towards the risks

posed by rising sea levels and

continuing to develop new

community facilities and ensure

existing facilities are being used.

Mr Barber said his experience

working with people in sales

means he will bring a new level

of communication skills to the

role.

Last week Cr Livingstone told

Pegasus Post Mr Mauger could

not do justice to the role living

outside of the Burwood Ward in

Avonhead.

However, Cr East has no

concerns over Mr Barber living

in Prestons. “It’s part of the

community board sort of area

and there are plenty of examples

of people that have been elected

in an area and don’t live in it,”

said Cr East.

Mr Barber’s great grandfather

Daniel Giles Sullivan was a city

councillor from 1915-1923 and

1925-1931, and Christchurch

mayor from 1931-1936. He was

also the Avon MP in the Labour

Government from 1919-1947

and minister of railways from

1935-1941.

Readers respond to the

Pegasus Post article on

Avonhead resident and

well-known businessman

Phil Mauger’s decision to

run against Burwood city

councillor Glenn Livingstone

in the upcoming local body

elections in October

Neil Langdon – Shouldn’t be

allowed to run if you don’t live in

the ward.

Alison Smith – Way to go Phil

as you say your roots were on the

east as were mine and we live in

Rolleston now. But that does not

stop me ever thinking or caring

about what is happening in the

east. You would be a great city

councillor, all the best.

Wendy Davie – Fantastic

news here’s to more like Phil

running for council.

Jennifer Dalziel – He lives

in Avonhead and wants to stand

in Burwood Ward? We don’t like

carpetbaggers in the east. If he

cares so much about Burwood why

doesn’t he live there?

Ivan Dane – Hmmmm, a

contractor who has heard about

$800 million to be spent on red

zone land. What to do . . .

Tony Howell – Good on you

Phil. Too many whingers and not

enough actually standing up and

trying to fix the issues.

Chrissi Tukaki – Why would

he want to try to oust one of the

more pro-active members when

there are others that don’t know

their left hand from their right?

Heather Wilkins – It’s a bit

like entering Parliament. They

think they will do miracles and

when they get there they realise

it’s actually harder than what they

thought.

Don Gould – More candidates,

more choice, this is excellent news.

Readers respond to the

Pegasus Post article last

week on the city council

taking over the Southshore

and South New Brighton

regeneration plan

Aileen Trist – The Southshore

and South New Brighton

communities have always known

what needs to be done for their

Estuary protection but have felt

the city council and Government

have been leading them up

the garden path from day one

regarding the work needed along

the Estuary edge surrounding

their community. I for one have

seen their actions in the past as

hoping Mother Nature would sort

it out on their behalf with no cost

to them. With positive progress

forward, it is time to get this job

done.

Driver, passenger praised

•From page 1

Mr Ward said he was

incredibly grateful for the man’s

actions and without them, he

could have died.

“I just really want to track him

down. I want to say a big thank

you to him . . . he could have

saved my life then, big time.

“I think I was at the point of

no return, I was halfway up to

you know where . . . I saw all of

these lights.”

Mr Ward also praised the actions

of the driver who stopped

the bus and helped. He met with

the driver on Friday to express

his gratitude and see if he could

help with finding the mystery

man.

Mr Ward said he had been diagnosed

with low blood pressure

in his 40s and in spite of having

health scares in the past, had

never had anything that had felt

this serious.

When Mr Ward regained consciousness,

he was helped across

Marshland Rd by the man and

Mrs Ward, just a short distance

from his home.

Once home Mrs Ward said she

was going to call an ambulance,

but Mr Ward’s blood pressure

had returned to normal.

In spite of this, at the time of

Mr Ward’s episode, Mrs Ward

GRATEFUL: Brian Ward and his wife Glenys want to track

down a man who they believe saved his life after he lost

consciousness on a bus last Tuesday.

said the worst could have happened

if it wasn’t for the actions

of the mystery man and the

driver.

“If it hadn’t been for his support

and the driver’s I don’t

know what I would have done if

I was by myself.”

Mrs Ward said everything had

happened so fast, getting the

names of the people who had

helped her husband was the last

thing on her mind.

The couple wanted Mr Ward’s

mystery helper and his family

to contact them on 027 662 2121

so they could thank them in

person.

Murals a ‘win-win for whole community’

•From page 1

Development Christchurch

Ltd chief executive Rob Hall

said creating an artwork

on the construction fence

was a great way to get the

community’s schools involved

in the hot pools project

and give them a true “New

Brighton” look.

“It’s great to see so many

local school children making

their mark on what is set to

be a fantastic local facility. We

also know that using artwork

on construction hoardings can

reduce vandalism and graffiti,

so we saw the event as a winwin

for the whole community.

“The finished product was

a fun, interactive mural that

was putting smiles on the faces

of the people involved and

passers-by even before it was

finished,” Mr Hall said.

Coastal Burwood Community

Board chairwoman Kim

Money said both murals were

“very New Brighton.”

“We’re looking at uses for

the Marine Pde mural after

construction is finished as well

as the children’s mural.

“It’s such a funky

and fringes the beachside

playground beautifully.”

New school campus open day

The community had a

chance to check out

the new Shirley Boys’

High and Avonside Girls’

High combined campus

last Sunday. About

2000 people had a look

inside the new buildings

and around the

grounds. The 750-seat

performing arts centre,

physical education

spaces and modern

learning facilities were

all on show.

ACTION: The design for the $22 million pool and community

facility on the corner of Smith St and Linwood Ave has been

approved. ​

Linwood Pool design signed off

• By Matt Slaughter

A CONCEPT design for the

new $22 million Linwood Pool

complex has been approved.

The site is set to open in late

2021. The facility, which was

signed off by the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board, will be built on the

corner of Smith St and Linwood

Ave. It will include a 25m lane

pool, deep-water pool with an

area for jumping off, family spa

pool, learn to swim pool, toddler

pool and a water deck.

There will also be an outdoor

community space with a

gathering area, picnic tables,

tennis and multi-use courts,

cycle stands and car parks.

The facility will be integrated

with Linwood Park and

offer a range of indoor and

outdoor recreational activities.

Community meeting rooms and

a kitchen will also be included in

the design.

Linwood Ward city

councillor Yani Johanson

said conversations about the

possibility

of building a

facility like this

in Linwood had

been happening

for about 20

years.

It would be a

great asset for

the community

once it was

Yani

Johanson

constructed, Cr Johanson said.

“It does point to a really

significant investment into a

community that certainly has

been overdue for it.”

spoilt for

choice

Locals loving the new

café in Pages Rd

A new café with an intriguing name,

which opened just a few weeks ago in

Pages Road, is creating quite a buzz in the

neighbourhood.

Owned and run by local resident

Julieanne, Rubys Girls Café is named for her

mother, who was always by her side through

difficult times, and her grandmother, and

Julieanne also uses many of their recipes

for the café’s food.

Julieanne managed the Mobil service

station across the road from the café for

many years, and got to know the community

well. Wanting a change, she looked at

starting her own business with the aim of

providing something local people could

benefit from and enjoy.

As luck would have it, premises in the

block of shops at 317 Pages Road became

available, and they were ideal for her plans

to open a cafe.

“I loved the outside area, the car parking,

and that my family was just around the

corner,” she says.

Inside, the café is spacious, light and

welcoming, with tables and chairs and a

lounge area, as well as colourful tables and

chairs for the children.

All the food, apart from the sandwich

bread, is made on the premises. The

selection includes freshly made sandwiches,

pies, savouries, pizzas, muffins, biscuits,

slices, cheesecake and donuts, while drinks

include barista coffee, a selection of teas

including herbal and chilled soft drinks –

and the customers are loving it.

To quote Kate and Stacey, there enjoying

coffee and a treat, “The food is so good!”

In fact, customers have nominated Rubys

Girls Cafe for the ‘Best steak and cheese pie’

in the Hits Radio competition.

“We are so honoured that people choose

to come here, when there

are so many eating places

around,” Julieanne says.

“We want to be a ‘home

away from home’ where

people can come for a

coffee and a chat with

their friends. On pension

day, we have ‘buy one

coffee and get one free’ for

Gold Card holders.”

Rubys Girls Café also offers outside

catering, for family events such as birthday

parties, engagement parties and funerals,

and the premises can also be hired in the

evenings for meetings. To enquire, phone

027 257 1062, or email rubysgirlscafe@

gmail.com.

Rubys Girls Café, 317 Pages Rd, on the

Breezes Rd corner, is open 7am-3pm

Monday to Friday and 9am-1pm Saturday.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Drainage scheme reduces flood risk

• By Matt Slaughter

STUDENTS FROM Haeata

Community Campus, Linwood

College and Marian College

received Duke of Edinburgh’s

International Awards.

In total, 24 students from

the schools were honoured at a

ceremony last Monday, 11 from

Linwood, 10 from Marian and

three from Haeata.

The students received

their awards for the hours

of work and activities they

had completed within their

communities.

These hours were committed

to things like physical activity,

sports coaching, volunteer work

including working in community

gardens and helping

the elderly and mentoring and

leadership.

The awards are run by

the Joshua Foundation, an

organisation, which provides

programmes for them to fulfil

ambitions and dreams through

leadership, competence, courage,

clarity and integrity and

character.

Burwood Ward city

councillor Glenn Livingstone

spoke at the awards,

congratulating the students on

their achievements.

“Recipients, you have built

A $19 MILLION land drainage

scheme has reduced the flood risk

for dozens of properties in the

Woolston and Linwood area.

Thousands of native trees and

plants have been planted in Te

Oranga Waikura Urban Forest,

which sits off Ferry Rd and covers

2.75ha.

The forest, which is open to the

public, acts as a storage basin in

heavy rain events, reducing the

frequency and severity of flooding

in the surrounding area.

As part of the flood mitigation

work, Bells Creek has also

been realigned and naturalised

through Linwood College.

The realignment of the creek

means Linwood College has

additional buildable land that it

can use to accommodate future

growth.

The sports field at Edmonds

Park can also be used as a stormwater

basin.

It has been excavated by about

1m to form a stormwater basin,

which can be used to store excess

water when it rains heavily.

A new stormwater pump

station has also been built in

Richardson Tce.

Its recent commissioning

marks the completion of the Bells

Creek flood mitigation work.

The pump station is important

because it allows the catchment

to drain when water levels in the

Heathcote River are high, city

council land drainage manager

Keith Davison said.

“Without the pump station,

the existing gravity outfall

cannot discharge water from the

catchment until the water level in

the Heathcote drops lower than

the outfall pipe, which means

water backs up in the catchment

causing flooding.”

AWARD-WINNERS: (Back row) – Duke of Edinburgh’s Award New

Social

cooking

class for

good cause

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SOCIAL cooking class will be

held to support teenagers and young

adults fighting cancer.

The Asian Garden Cooking

School is holding an evening to raise

funds for CanTeen on Wednesday.

Managing director Murray Macarthy

said the evening was a good

way to give back to the community

and support a worthy cause.

Participants taking part will learn

how to make an authentic Asian

meal.

Mr Macarthy said the evening

usually ends up being “quite a

party.”

“We finish it off and they all sit

down and we serve it up to them

like a restaurant. We serve up beer

and wine. It is quite a social get

together to meet a lot of people,”he

said.

He said the evening will cost $99

and already about 12 people were

booked in.

One hundred per cent of the

proceeds from the evening will go

to CanTeen.

Every day 10 young people across

the country are impacted by a cancer

diagnosis.

CanTeen has been helping 13 to

24-year-olds with cancer for nearly

30 years.

But reduced funding has

raised concerns the organisation

may no longer be able to

keep operating without

donations.

on Wednesday at the Asian

Garden Cooking School, 7

BURWOOD 12-year-old

Lauren Sheere is aiming to earn

a medal on the trampoline at

the Australian Gymnastics

Championships, this week in

Melbourne.

The Heaton Intermediate student

and national championship

medallist made the final in the

under-15 age-group at the same

event last

year but that

was while

competing

up a grade

against more

experienced

Lauren Sheere

competitors.

Lauren

will compete

in the individual category as

well as the synchro event in

the international youth grade,

where she will team up with an

Auckland-based friend.

“The two things are form

and height, they get measured

on their time of flight and how

long they are in the air and

also where they land, her mum,

Sandy Sheere said.

“Its a really big competition,

so I’d like to make the final first

which is the top eight and then

push for the podium from there,

AERIAL: Lauren Sheere in action at the Australian

Gymnastics Championships last year.

Lauren said.

“Because I over-qualified last

year, I was moved up a grade

and while I still made the final

which was awesome, I’m looking

forward to competing with my

own age group this year.’’

“She had a real trade-off to

compete in the higher grade,

because she had a real chance of

medalling in her usual grade,”

Mrs Sheere said.

Lauren trains and competes

for Hornby’s Olympia Gymsports

and can train for up to 12

hours a week in preparation for

the event.

“I don’t get much time at

home sometimes but I ride

horses as well but training is

worth it,” Lauren said.

“The last two months has been

some of the best training I’ve

ever had and I’ve picked up a

couple of new skills so I’m feeling

really good.

“Winning a medal would be

worth it, it would be really cool.

“One day I’d love to go to the

Olympics but that will be in a

few years,” Lauren said.

“My main goal is to qualify for

the world champs in November

next year.”

Medals for boxers

• By Jacob Page

TWO WOOLSTON boxers have

warmed up for the South Island

Golden Gloves at Kaiapoi this

weekend by winning medals as

part of the New Zealand team at

the Arafura Games in Darwin.

Chrissy Reid won gold in the

women’s middleweight 75kg class

while Trevor Swainson earned a

bronze medal in the men’s 81kg

class.

Reid beat South Australia’s

Laura Wright in the semifinals

and won the final against

Queensland’s Rhiana Kerr.

Swainson lost his semi-final

against Queensland’s Roger

Grant.

The Arafura Games saw boxers

representing Australian states

compete in various weight classes.

Both boxers will be aiming to

at least replicate their results at

the South Island Golden Gloves at

push their claims for the nationals

later in the year.

Swainson, a 26-year-old builder

by day, who lost his semi-final

in Darwin, said he was happy to

represent New Zealand on an international

stage for the first time.

“I know I lost the fight but I

was actually really happy with

how I performed, it was a great

opportunity.

Swainson has boxed competitively

for the past three years and

is a former South Island champion.

Reid, has only been in the

sport for the past 18 months and

described her time in Darwin as

surreal.

The Irish-born engineer said

it was special to represent New

Zealand for the first time.

“To wear the silver fern and

come away with the win was

something I couldn’t believe,” she

said.

“It took a while to sink in.”

Reid made the Canterbury

team last year and she hoped to

replicate the efforts once again

this year.

“I got into boxing for fitness

but also I like having something

to train for, an end goal and

fighting an opponent at the end of

a training camp does that for me.”

There is a better way

to take your fight to

Advertising FeAture

Southern Response than

join a class action and it is

commiSSion FREE

We at Claims Resolution Service Ltd are

offering to any Southern Response policy

holder to take their case for misleading

DRA’s on individually and if you sign up

within the next 2 months our commission for

funding the action will be ZERO, absolutely

FREE of commission. All you will have to

pay is the costs incurred and they won’t be

due until your case ends*. Yes, that’s right,

anyone signing up with us to run this one

specific case against Southern Response on

or before 23 July 2019 will not be charged

any commission. We will be fighting exactly

the same issues as GCA Lawyers class action,

but you will be in control.

You pay nothing up front and

nothing until your case comes

to an end*

Call Cheryl now on 021 701854 or email

her directly, cheryl@eqservices.co.nz

we can come to you free of charge.

* Case ended means, the contract has been terminated by either party, the case has been

settled or for any other reason that your agreement with us is at an end.

If you sign up after the 23 July 2019 we are offering

a significantly reduced commission rate of a fixed

percentage commission of 10% plus GST of the

settlement figure plus costs. So, it’s in your interests to

act now and take advantage of the commission FREE

The benefits of taking an individual claim against Southern

Response.

1. You can choose your own lawyer provided they will work

within our parameters and charge you a fair rate or we can

suggest a lawyer for you.

2. Individual claims can typically expect much faster and higher

settlements, than those in a class action.

3. Individual claims mean you have all the control over the action,

and the decision over any proposed settlement offer, not

someone you don’t know.

4. Much lower funding fee, in fact if you get in on time it’s ZERO.

5. We will charge you ZERO commission, that’s right, nothing,

NaDa, zip commission. All you will have to pay is your costs and

those won’t be due until your case has ended*.

6. We don’t benefit if your case drags on.

7. We won’t take a mortgage over your home. If you have signed

up for a class action, make sure you check your contract that

they don’t have the right to take a mortgage out on your home.

8. If you have already joined the GCA Class action and want to

cancel your contract with them and you have any trouble doing

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sments southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselves some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE ST Andrew’s Co lege big

win a the National Youth Ja z

Competition – ba s player, Tom

Fastier, co lapsed and died the

day before the competition

began.

“Tom was a ba s player from

playing with our big band this

year. He had a strong chance of

winning best ba s player a the

festival as he was a very a complished

musician,” head of music

Duncan Ferguson said.

“We were delighted to win, but

it was bi tersw et,” he said.

St Andrew’s won the most

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

planned 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 Jones 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 annual

plans are a l about lo bying the

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments are 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 apartments 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.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l this stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting more experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ll be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing is scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

September-May along with a Thai

f od truck.

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GREENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN UPPER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

Templeton.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submission if Fulton Hogan a plies

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’s submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as well over recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sments southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselves some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

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

planned 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 Jones 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 annual

Cave Rock

Apartments’

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments are 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 apartments 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.”

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

Only eight submi sions were

The district council wi l be

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing is scheduled to be

The bylaw comes as an increasing

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

Mr A pleton said it was

AN UPPER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWELL-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the planned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’s submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l over recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.
