handed in her scrubs.

Almost 27 years ago, Pam

Woodham was offered a nursing

job in ward 22, a 20-bed ward

for children up to the age of 15

with medical conditions.

She fell in love with her

career, motivated daily by the

resilience, compliance and

understanding of her patients

who battled both short and

long-term illnesses. But at 68,

Mrs Woodham has decided to

cycle home for the last time.

Intersection

sessions

leave

residents

‘frustrated’

• By Jess Gibson

RESIDENTS WHO live near the

controversial Harewood, Breens

and Gardiners Rds intersection

have called drop-in sessions “a

waste of time.”

Sessions were held last

Tuesday at Breens Intermediate

and Thursday at Bishopdale

Community Centre for residents

to learn more about two

options to improve safety at the

intersection.

Option one, which is the city

council’s preferred choice, is

to make Gardiners and Breens

Rds left-turn in and left-turn

out only by closing the median

on Harewood Rd. Option two

is to install traffic lights at the

intersection.

Since consultation opened

on May 6, the city council has

received 662 submissions from

the public.

Residents were told at the

beginning of Thursday’s drop-in

session they would need to wait

until after the presentation to ask

questions in four small groups,

with one member of the project

team at each table.

from the editor’s desk

THE SPARKS continue to fly over that

painfully agonising saga known as

improvements to the Harewood, Breens

and Gardiners Rds intersection.

This time they flew at city council-organised

drop-in sessions to let people know

about the different options being considered (see page 1).

But clearly many there were not happy with the way they were

run.

There have been more than 600 public submissions to the city

council on the intersection – that is huge. There were also good

turnouts to the two drop-in sessions; clearly showing people

have a big interest in this matter.

But the process has been painfully slow, and city councillor

Aaron Keown has been justifiably vocal.

So the message is crystal clear – hurry up!

On track to get kids on bikes

• By Jess Gibson

A $90,000 project, led by

Northcote School, aims to get

kids cycling.

The Bikes in Schools project is

being run by the Bike On New

Zealand Charitable Trust. It

aims to give as many children as

possible the chance to ride a bike

on a “regular and equal basis”

within their school.

More than $50,000 has

been raised to

date, which will

eventually go

towards a fleet of

up to 50 bikes, a

quality helmet for

all 131 children at

Ali Jones

the school, bike

storage, riding

classes and a bike track.

Principal Justin Perriam

wants a 400m asphalt track to be

installed by the end of the year

which would be used by pupils

and the Redwood community.

“We have a very open gate

policy. In the weekends and

after school, we have a number

of different groups who use

the school so the track would

provide another resource that

the community could have

access to,” Mr Perriam said.

“We are really big on trying

to make the school the hub of

CYCLE TIME: Northcote School principal Justin Perriam is

leading a project to get more children on bikes.

the community. (The track)

is expensive but we value it as

being important. We are a low

decile school and a lot of our

children don’t have access to

bikes. If I look out to the bike

stands there are two bikes.

“We see bike safety as being a

really strong precursor to when

they actually start driving, so

the more we can do to help

(pupils) with their road skills,

the better. Plus they get the

benefits of fitness at the same

time,” he said.

The school started fundraising

and applying for grants late last

year.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency has granted $40,000 and

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board recently granted $8000,

with additional money coming

from fundraisers like sausage

sizzles.

Community board

chairwoman Ali Jones said

the board agreed to raise the

grant from $7000 to $8000 “to

emphasise the importance of

these kinds of programmes in

these schools and particularly in

these parts of the city.”

“The more that schools,

regional councils, local

authorities and so forth can

work together and share

facilities, the more opportunities

there will be for everyone,” Ms

Jones said.

Several North Island Bikes in

Schools projects have received

money from the Ministry of

Education.

However, in Canterbury,

funding was frozen after the

earthquakes so it can be used

on the redevelopment of school

buildings over the next two

years.

The community board plans

to write a letter to the ministry

expressing its disappointment

over its funding policy.

Board members say

providing facilities for

children is especially

important in light of the

earthquakes and the stress

children have been through.

Northcote School is currently

looking at quotes for the

equipment and the track before

it applies to major funders, such

as the New Zealand Lotteries

Commission.

YOUTH GRANTS

Two students in the north-west

area have received funding from

the 2018-19 Youth Development

Fund. The Papanui-Innes Community

Board approved a grant of

$450 for St Margaret’s College student

Trinity Jane Mackley, which

will be put towards her trip to

Indonesia play in the Little League

Asia Pacific Softball Tournament.

The community board also approved

$350 to Papanui High

School student Jonel Marais for her

trip to Australia to compete at the

2019 gymnastics championships.

WATER TANK

The preliminary design phase for

the Jeffreys Reserve suction tank

is complete after being delayed in

April due to space constraints on

the current 200 cu m earthquakedamaged

tank.

BUS PRIORITY PROJECT

Construction work is set to

begin in July for the bus priority

project on Main North Rd. The

city council expects to appoint a

contractor in June. Improvements

will include a full-time bus lane

running north from Winston

Ave to Grassmere St, a signalised

intersection at Grassmere St,

walking and biking improvements,

layout change to the Northlands

Shopping Centre car park entrance

and more trees on Main North Rd.

Retired nurse made

big impact on patients

•From page 1

Among her friends from the

ward is Ashleigh Lilley, 25, who

Mrs Woodham has cared for since

she was first admitted as a threemonth-old.

Miss Lilley has a rare liver

disorder called glycogen storage

disease, which has

caused her to be in

and out of hospital her

whole life.

Mrs Woodham

remembers having races

with Miss Lilley, in

which she would drink

ice cold water while

Miss Lilley downed

cornstarch to raise her

blood pressure.

Mrs Woodham has had many

roles in the children’s ward.

“I loved them all. When you are

an advocate for children it doesn’t

matter what role you’re in. The

child is the most important part

of it all,” she said.

“Kids need to know that you

care and that you will be there for

them.”

Ms Woodham had a large

send-off this month to celebrate

her dedication to the job. She

dressed in an old nursing uniform

from the Hillmorton Hospital

museum.

The outfit was similar to the one

Ashleigh Lilley

she wore when she took her first

nursing job in Sydney – where she

was born – in 1968 at a Catholic

hospital run by nuns.

Mrs Woodham married and

moved to Christchurch in 1977,

where she raised four children.

She took time off nursing to

pursue a cake business

before returning to start

her job at Christchurch

Hospital in 1992.

After almost five

decades in the workforce,

Mrs Woodham said

she still feels like she is

on annual leave – not

retired.

“It still hasn’t really hit

me,” she said.

With more free time on her

hands, Mrs Woodham will add

travel to her list of hobbies –

which includes reading, cycling,

tramping and going to the gym.

Her son, who lives in

Christchurch, recently

shouted her a week-long trip to Fiji

to celebrate her retirement and she

will travel to England on Sunday

to see one of her daughters.

Ms Woodham said she also

plans to visit her two children

in Australia soon, as well as her

18-year-old granddaughter in

Sydney, who has just started

studying to become a nurse.

Franicevic gets ready for another battle

SCOTT FRANICEVIC will not

let the fact he has no job and

has previously battled mental

health challenges get him down.

Instead the 29-year-old said

it will fuel his drive to help

change Christchurch if he is

elected onto the city council or

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board in October’s

local body elections.

He is The People’s Choice

candidate for the Harewood

Ward. Mr Franicevic has

lived in or near Harewood

for 25 years and wants

to see better democracy,

transparency and greater city

council accountability for the

community.

He will take on incumbent

city councillor Aaron Keown

for a seat at the council table.

And for the board seat, he

will run against newcomer

Jason Middlemiss and existing

member Linda Chen.

“I’d say bring it on,” said Mr

Franicevic. He ran his family

accommodation business before

it was sold due to increased

business competition.

In the role, Mr Franicevic

gained work experience in

accounting, management and

customer service – which

he believes will help him in

politics.

“Part of my passion for

Scott Franicevic

politics is because I have driven

the road of being on the benefit

and having mental health

challenges. I genuinely believe I

can make a change for people,”

he said.

“Harewood is full of a lot of

young first home buyers who

are a similar age to myself, or

a lot of seniors who are on a

pension, which is only slightly

more income than I earn each

week,” he said.

“I would argue that I can

understand the concerns of a

limited budget much greater

than people who earn six-figure

salaries each year. I believe that

I am well-placed to represent

the viewpoint

of someone

outside of the

establishment

with pragmatic

ideas on how

we can address

issues,” he said.

“Our

community

faces some

unique

challenges and

I look forward

to getting stuck

into them. This

election is a

chance to bring

in some fresh

faces to make

better progress

on issues like

protecting

our water,

committing

to a long-term

plan on public

transport and

Fire rages, homes at risk

Hussaini to stand

in board elections

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ZAHRA HUSSAINI often

feels like she does not belong

anywhere.

Born in Iran, the 27-year-old

moved to New Zealand with her

family 15 years ago to seek a new

life and opportunities.

“Wherever I go, people think I

am from somewhere else. If I am

in New Zealand, I am a Muslim

and I wear a hijab and people

think I just came from overseas

. . . when I go back home I don’t

obviously fit in with them or do

things the way they do,” she said.

The Wigram resident will

run under The People’s Choice

banner for the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board in October’s

local body elections.

She is not the only Muslim to

put her name forward for the

elections – Al Noor Mosque

imam Gamal Fouda is running

for the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board.

Miss Hussaini will stand for

the Waimairi Ward, and said

giving back to the community

provides her with a sense of

belonging.

“It is saying I do belong here,

I do belong to this community

because I am part of this

community, and I am giving

back to this community with all

my heart.”

Miss Hussaini does not live in

Waimairi, but said she has lived

in the ward. She is finishing a

Bachelor of Science, majoring

in biology, at Canterbury

University.

As long as she is helping the

community in a positive way

and bringing about change,

Miss Hussaini said it should

not matter whether she lives in

the area. She has been thinking

about running for more than a

year, and the mosque shooting

made her more determined

to make a difference. She was

particularly impressed with

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern

wearing a hijab after the attack.

“A lot of Muslim women

were concerned to go out in

public with their hijabs and

what Jacinda did was absolutely

beautiful,” she said.

She said it is important to

have representatives on the

board from a diverse range of

backgrounds.

Since March 15, the

community has become more

welcoming and accepting of

Muslims and other cultures, she

said.

Miss Hussaini has a

science background and her

goals include improving

environmental health and water

quality in the city. She wants to

reduce plastic use, fight water

bottling and improving car

parking issues in the area.

She volunteers for several

groups, including the

Canterbury Resettlement

Service and Who is Hussain? – a

non-profit organisation which

promotes awareness about the

legacy of Hussain ibn Ali.

Pensioners keep fit and connected

• By Jess Gibson

A MERIVALE exercise group for

older people goes beyond keeping

fit and healthy – it also keeps

members connected with their

community.

About 25 people aged between

65 and 95 head down for a

range of stretches and light

exercises every Monday from

11.30am-12.30pm at The Corner

community centre.

Community centre coordinator

Julia Kluts said the

class gives people the opportunity

to meet other residents.

“A real concern now is the

isolation and loneliness of

elderly,” she said.

The exercise group, which is

instructed by Lisa Manners,

started when The Corner opened

in a new building on Church Ln

late last year.

Its original base was

demolished after the February

22, 2011, earthquake and the

Elmwood Bowling Club building

was used in the meantime.

Tai Chi, strolling, embroidery

and arts and crafts groups are

some of the other activities

offered at the centre.

Brent Forbes exhibits his latest work in a solo show

‘Lay of the Land’ at Little River Gallery which opens

Saturday June 1st.

Brent writes about his painting practice. “It’s like

driving somewhere. A shape, a curve in the road or a

certain piece of light comes to your attention then just

as quickly disappears in the rear-view mirror. Several

kilometres down the road the same thing happens

again, each new vista either forgotten or somehow

remembered, an accumulation of random memories.

Upon arrival you now have a loose set of images

in your mind – some can be tied to a certain

place, others cannot – but either way there has

been a conscious and unconscious engagement

with your surroundings.

Then you head into the studio and use these points

of reference to start working. But working is

something else. There is experimentation, conflict

and resolution. There is engagement and restraint.

There is a journey with its own rules.

Sometimes you end back up where you started, but

if you are lucky you can end up somewhere new –

discovered because you had an idea of where you

wanted to go but as you set off you threw the map

out the window.”

But when Harewood resident

Terry Donaldson then questioned

the “controlled” environment of the

session, it was met with applause.

Mr Donaldson lives near Nunweek

Park and uses the intersection

often to visit his daughter on Seddon

St.

He said the proposed U-turn option

would not meet the needs of the

community and that traffic lights

were the appropriate “long-term

answer.”

But he was hoping to hear other

residents’ thoughts on the matter.

“You’ve got to have an open meeting.

One resident might trigger an

idea for another,” he said.

Northwood resident Suzanne

Walker attended both meetings as

she and her husband regularly use

the intersection and want traffic

lights installed.

Ms Walker said at the meeting on

Tuesday, around 50 residents were

not told they could not ask questions

publicly until after the presentation.

“There was a very strong vibe of

frustration at the meeting,” she said.

Transport planning and delivery

manager Lynette Ellis said the idea

of the smaller groups was for people

to get information face to face with

one of the project team.

Ms Ellis said the project team

listened to the ideas of residents and

discussed common themes after the

sessions finished.

City councillor Aaron Keown

called the process a “cop-out.”

In response to the demand from

residents, Cr Keown will host an

informal meeting in the Bishopdale

Community Centre from 6-7pm on

Thursday.

Cr Keown has organised the session

and is paying to hire the hall

out of his own pocket as it is not a

council event.

“If some members of the public

want to vent and have big public

meetings, we should do that.

“I’ve never seen passion around an

intersection quite like this one,” Cr

Keown said.

He said he will not influence any

of the resident’s decision-making at

the meeting and will just provide

information on the consultation and

how to make a submission.

“I’ve made it clear to Cr Keown

that if he wishes to host his own

certainly, from a board member’s

point of view, we want to go to the

were mine and we live in

Rolleston now. But that

does not stop me 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

the 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 proactive

members when there

are others that don’t know

their left hand from their

right hand?

A SOCIAL cooking class

will be held to support

teenagers and young adults

fighting cancer.

The Asian Garden

Cooking School will

hold an evening class to

raise funds for CanTeen

tomorrow.

Managing director

Murray Macarthy said

the event will be 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

NEWCOMER: Businessman Phil Mauger will run

against Glenn Livingstone (inset) for the Burwood

Ward city council seat in October’s local body

elections.

Janine Manson – Go

Phil.

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.

Aileen Kimber – Good

for you.

Merav Benaia

responds to the article

about using murals to

prevent graffiti at St

James Park in Papanui

As a local resident, I

agree the amenities at the

park need some attention.

This can be a great

project for art students

working together with the

community to replace the

old concrete look.

And while we are at it,

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 cost is $99

and about 12 people have

already booked spots.

One hundred per cent

of the proceeds from

painting the interior of

the toilet block in bright

colours can make them

look less like an old prison

cell.

Joan Herbert

responds to the article

about options for the

contentious Harewood,

Breens and Gardiners

Rds intersection, which

are currently out for

consultation

Please install traffic

lights, it is such a dangerous

and difficult intersection.

This should have been done

before the lights were put in

at Sawyers Arms Rd. Look

how successful they have

been.

Cooking for a good cause

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.

•The class will be held

at the Asian Garden

Cooking School,

7 Whitchurch Pl,

Harewood, at 5.30pm.

Rangi musicians’ big break

“A HUGE achievement.”

That is how Rangi Ruru Girls’

School director of music Janet

Kingsbury described the success

of three students who have been

named in the NZSO National

Youth Orchestra.

Year 13 music scholars

Sarah Lawrence (violin) and

Victoria Park (viola), and year

12 scholar Amy Clough (Oboe)

have gained the prestigious

places, in what Mrs Kingsbury

said is a very competitive

environment.

“What makes this additionally

such an achievement for these

three girls is that the vast

majority of NYO members are

tertiary level students and even

beyond. It is the top level of nonprofessional

orchestral playing

available for young musicians in

New Zealand. We are incredibly

proud of them,” she said.

The girls will join recent Rangi

Ruru alumni Jessie Anderson

and Isabella Gregory.

“Amy’s selection this year

is particularly outstanding as

there are only three oboes in an

orchestra – so to win a place as a

year 12 student is a remarkable

achievement,” Mrs Kingsbury

said.

Sarah has just finished the

senior production Wheeler’s Luck

and said she is looking forward

to sleeping a little more now the

play is over.

“I am very excited to learn

from and work alongside such

an amazing group of young

musicians again,” she said.

“Also without the

constant support and

encouragement of the incredibly

hardworking music staff at

Rangi, as well as the role models

I’ve had in older girls throughout

my time here, I wouldn’t

be in the position to have

opportunities like this.”

Victoria said music is a big part

of her life and she can’t imagine

being without it.

“The lifelong skills I’ve gained

TALENTED:

Oboeist

Amy

Clough,

violist

Victoria

Park and

violinist

Sarah

Lawrence

have been

selected in

the NZSO

National

Youth

Orchestra.

and the connections made

through music have crafted me

into the person I am today. I am

incredibly excited to be part of

the NYO, as I look forward to

learning many new things in

regards to music and making

new connections through this

experience. “

Concerts will be held in

Wellington and Auckland, where

the NYO will be joined by the

New Zealand Youth Choir for

one of the performances in these

concerts.

SIXTEEN PUPILS are leading

a revamp of the St Albans skate

park.

The St Albans School Student

Council presented its design

ideas for a planned

extension of the skate

park to city council

staff during a meeting

at the school.

The group

represents pupils

from new entrants up

to year 6.

The pupils’

suggestions included

adding a small ramp

and obstacle course for young

skaters and scooter riders;

providing chalk for drawing

on the concrete; a storage shed

for sports gear; “a nice shelter”

and seating; more games; and

“pretend traffic lights” for

practicing road safety.

Teacher Niamh O’Connor

SCHOOLS

PLANNING:

Members

of St Albans

School’s

student

council met

with city

council staff

to present

their ideas

for a

revamp of

St Albans

skate park. ​

Pupils lead skate park plan

Andrew

Rutledge

NOR’WEST NEWS

said the group is motivated and

enjoying being part of a real-life

design project.

“The whole process is a

fantastic opportunity for them.

They’ve experienced

how the council consults

with the public and

to allow our student

leaders to have a voice in

the community is quite

empowering.”

A draft plan should be

ready for consultation

later this year.

City council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge

said having local schools get

involved in skate park projects is

incredibly valuable.

“We hope the final outcome

will be that we have young

people feeling part of a new

development in their area and

we can also create great skate

parks that meet their needs.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

New mural

planned

in Bryndwr

• By Jess Gibson

THE Christchurch Methodist

Mission is seeking funding for a

new mural in Bryndwr.

The mission is looking at

options to put a mural on a

wall at Aratupu Preschool

on Harewood Rd. The wall is

L-shaped and on land owned

by both the pre-school and city

council.

The cost is yet to be

determined, but the mission

has already started applying for

grants.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board granted $3500 towards

the project and the mission will

apply to the Christchurch creative

communities scheme for funding

in July.

The mural which was

previously installed 10 years ago

was removed after it became

weather-beaten and damaged,

and the blank wall has since

become a target for graffiti.

The funding will pay for an

artist to design and paint the

mural, as well as extra work like

hand painting panels, laminating

and installing the artwork.

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 sment 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 themselve 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.”

New bid to fix potholes

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

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• 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.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

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

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

The preparation for this year’s

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 thi 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 mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

Only eight submi sions were

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Activities and Events in

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

their horses Tommy and Kruze

The presentation is a prelude

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

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

Elite Meats owner Corey

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

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

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.

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 sment 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 themselve 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.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• 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.”

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 thi 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 mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l 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 i 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

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

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 U PER 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

Board chairman Mike Mora

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

“I’d like to think so because the
