Students’ cars put pressure<br />

on streets close to schools<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

RESIDENTS ARE fed up with<br />

students at Shirley Boys’ and<br />

Avonside Girls’ High Schools<br />

parking and driving badly in streets<br />

around their new school.<br />

Some nearby residents have raised<br />

concerns with the schools and the<br />

city council about the issues.<br />

The schools say they are aware<br />

of these concerns and are working<br />

with the city council and students to<br />

address them.<br />

City council transport operations<br />

manager Steffan Thomas said it was<br />

working to establish the best way<br />

to manage congestion in streets<br />

surrounding the new Travis Rd site.<br />

“There is increased all-day<br />

parking demand on streets in the<br />

vicinity of the schools, as well<br />

as short-term parking demand<br />

associated with students being<br />

dropped off and picked up in the<br />

before and after school periods,” he<br />

said.<br />

“Staff have been monitoring<br />

parking demand in this area<br />

and gathering information to<br />

fully understand where parking<br />

associated with the schools is<br />

occurring and what issues are<br />

associated with that parking.<br />

That information will enable the<br />

development of appropriate parking<br />

management interventions.”<br />

needs to be done to stop students from parking and driving badly.<br />

I SYMPATHISE with people living near<br />

the new Shirley Boys’/Avonside Girls’<br />

campus at QE II (see page 1).<br />

But I suspect there will be no easy answer<br />

to residents’ concerns about parking and<br />

driving behaviour.<br />

Many high school students now have cars and they have to<br />

park somewhere.<br />

In days gone by it wasn’t so much of a problem. The bike, bus<br />

or walking was the usual way to get to and from school.<br />

Now and then you might have taken the family car to school<br />

(which on some occasions was tested out on the quarter mile<br />

strip on Frosts Rd, but let’s not go there).<br />

Time will tell what the city council and schools come up with<br />

solution-wise. We will keep you posted.<br />

In Brief<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

SOME BURWOOD Hospital<br />

patients are being put in<br />

danger when trying to cross<br />

the Burwood and Mairehau<br />

Rds intersection, says the New<br />

Zealand Spinal Trust.<br />

The trust’s members want<br />

traffic lights to be installed at<br />

the intersection. A site visit is<br />

set to take place<br />

between trust<br />

representatives,<br />

city council staff<br />

and Burwood<br />

Ward city<br />

councillor Glenn<br />

Glenn<br />

Livingstone<br />

Steffan<br />

Thomas<br />

Livingstone,<br />

where the trust<br />

will attempt to<br />

show the need<br />

for lights.<br />

City council<br />

transport<br />

operations<br />

manager Steffan<br />

Thomas said the<br />

intersection is<br />

on its radar, but<br />

it is too early<br />

to determine how it would be<br />

improved.<br />

“There is a budget allocated<br />

in the current Long Term Plan<br />

for intersection improvements<br />

at the Burwood-Mairehau<br />

Patients in danger crossing road<br />

WATCH OUT: Hans Wouters (left) and Brett Ladbrook, of the<br />

New Zealand Spinal Trust, say the Burwood and Mairehau<br />

Rds intersection is too dangerous for wheelchair users.<br />

intersection and scheme options<br />

are currently being investigated.<br />

How and when the project<br />

progresses will be determined<br />

through the Annual Plan<br />

process, which will be adopted<br />

in late <strong>June</strong>. The intersection<br />

has been on budget since the<br />

2015-25 Long Term Plan,” Mr<br />

Thomas said.<br />

Spinal trust senior pair<br />

support co-ordinator Brett<br />

Ladbrook said traffic lights<br />

would be the safest option.<br />

“I’ve seen what they’ve done<br />

to the Burwood Rd and QE II<br />

intersection when the traffic<br />

lights were put in there from a<br />

roundabout and that made a<br />

huge difference to the flow of<br />

traffic, but also to pedestrians<br />

being able to get across a very,<br />

very busy road.”<br />

Mr Ladbrook, who uses a<br />

wheelchair, said the intersection,<br />

which patients cross to get to<br />

the nearby shops, is becoming<br />

increasingly busy.<br />

“With the advent of the<br />

Prestons Rd subdivision coming<br />

in, the traffic flow there now is<br />

worse than it’s ever been.”<br />

Mr Ladbrook said at the start<br />

of the year, a woman fell from<br />

her wheelchair and fractured<br />

her foot crossing the road.<br />

The only protection available<br />

to people crossing the road<br />

is four traffic islands and a<br />

roundabout.<br />

Spinal trust chief executive<br />

Hans Wouters said motorists<br />

will sometimes drive through<br />

the roundabout without taking<br />

time to look for pedestrians.<br />

There is only 3-4m between<br />

the traffic islands and each<br />

side of the road, but this is a<br />

long way for inexperienced<br />

wheelchair users, Mr Wouters<br />

said.<br />

“They are unskilled<br />

wheelchair users, who are brand<br />

new to disability, lacking in<br />

skills and confidence.<br />

“If someone zips around<br />

the corner coming from the<br />

opposite direction, you could be<br />

compromised.”<br />

Cr Livingstone said a date is<br />

yet to be set for the site meeting.<br />

SAND DUNE MAINTENANCE<br />

Work to trim overgrown areas<br />

of the sand dune track from<br />

Waimairi to New Brighton has<br />

begun. On May 20, the Coastal-<br />

Burwood Community Board<br />

requested city council staff<br />

investigate if these areas could<br />

be trimmed. Staff will carry out<br />

another trim before the summer<br />

holidays and at the start of next<br />

autumn.<br />

THOMSON PARK RENEWAL<br />

A community open day will be<br />

held tomorrow between 3.15<br />

and 4.30pm to celebrate the<br />

completion of the project to<br />

upgrade Thomson Park. This<br />

has involved upgrading the<br />

car park, constructing a<br />

basketball court and making<br />

landscaping and garden<br />

improvements.<br />

GREAT READS INSTORE NOW<br />

A Biker’s Life<br />

Misadventure on (and off) two wheels<br />

By Henry Cole<br />

A BIKER’S LIFE is the dramatic, humorous and candid memoir of<br />

one of the most recognisable names in motorcycling.<br />

Henry Cole’s passion for motorbikes began when, at the age of<br />

eight, he was first introduced to a ‘man cave’. His great-uncle<br />

Redbeard’s corrugated iron shed was ‘stuffed to the gills with old<br />

motorbikes’ which Henry helped rebuild and ride. Since then,<br />

Henry’s life can be charted through the bikes and journeys he has<br />

been on - from a stifling public-school education, via many years<br />

battling addiction, to the big-sky iconic routes Henry has ridden<br />

for over twenty series as presenter of numerous TV shows.<br />

This book reminds millions of motorcyclists why their bike gives them the freedom to be<br />

exactly who they want to be: to say ‘I’m doing my thing.’ When you ride a motorbike you<br />

become part of a worldwide community of kindred spirits - those of us who will not be<br />

pacified by driving a car, but instead live for adventure and the sheer thrill of the throttle.<br />

Repurposed<br />

New Zealand Homes Using Upcycled Materials<br />

and Spaces<br />

By Catherine Foster<br />

New ways to use old materials, spaces and buildings, by the<br />

author of Small House Living.<br />

An on-trend home design book, featuring an inspiring array<br />

of homes that have made good use of recycled and upcycled<br />

materials, structures, spaces and furnishings. Included in the<br />

mix are industrial and farm buildings that have been converted<br />

for living and furnished appropriately with vintage and repurposed industrial fittings.<br />

The book features 20 homes located throughout the country that feature a variety of clever<br />

solutions and design styles. There is everything from repurposed container homes to army<br />

barracks, farm utility buildings, churches and urban spaces finished with upcycled and<br />

repurposed furnishings.<br />

Tim Cook<br />

The Genius Leading Apple into a New era of<br />

Success<br />

By Leander Kahney<br />

In 2011, Tim Cook took on an impossible task - following in the<br />

footsteps of one of history’s greatest business visionaries, Steve<br />

Jobs. Facing worldwide scrutiny, Cook (who was often described<br />

as shy, unassuming and unimaginative) defied all expectations.<br />

Under Cook’s leadership Apple has soared: its stock has nearly<br />

tripled to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company. From<br />

the massive growth of the iPhone to new victories like the Apple<br />

Watch, Cook is leading Apple to a new era of success.<br />

But he’s also spearheaded a cultural revolution within the company. Since becoming CEO,<br />

Cook has introduced a new style of management that emphasizes kindness, collaboration<br />

and honesty, and has quietly pushed Apple to support sexual and racial equal rights and<br />

invest heavily in renewable energy.<br />

The Billion Dollar Bonfire<br />

How Allan Hubbard and the Government<br />

destroyed South Canterbury Finance<br />

By Chris Lee<br />

The collapse of South Canterbury Finance (SCF) is one of the<br />

biggest New Zealand stories of the last decade.<br />

The sweep of events, from Timaru to the Beehive, include some<br />

of the most revealing moments on issues critical to this country<br />

- everything from poor governance and systemic issues in the<br />

finance sector, through to the structural risks this exposed and<br />

the costs it ultimately presented to all New Zealanders. There has<br />

not yet been a book that has attempted to tell this story, certainly<br />

not one from an `insider’ perspective. The Billion Dollar Bonfire by Chris Lee will be the first<br />

book to do both these things. Chris tells this fascinating story as both a long-standing New<br />

Zealand financial advisor and a protagonist in the narrative. As he writes in the opening<br />

chapter, he knew Alan Hubbard personally and, from the late 1990s, had clients invest with<br />

SCF. His main motivation for writing the book, made explicit throughout, is his overriding<br />

concern that this could all happen again without significant changes to our law and the<br />

culture of the capital markets industry.<br />

Jane Goodall vists gardens<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

GLOBALLY-renowned<br />

conservationist Dame Jane<br />

Goodall has visited Richmond<br />

Community Garden members,<br />

leaving them starstruck.<br />

The garden’s co-founder Cathy<br />

Allden said the Jane Goodall<br />

Institute had accepted her invitation<br />

to lead Dr Goodall on a<br />

walk from outside Banks Avenue<br />

School to the Richmond Community<br />

Garden.<br />

Last Thursday, Ms Allden and<br />

about 30 of the garden’s volunteers<br />

joined Dr Goodall on the<br />

walk, with Ms Allden telling its<br />

story along the way.<br />

Once they arrived they shared<br />

a morning tea and Dr Goodall<br />

spoke to the group.<br />

Said Ms Allden: “Her message<br />

to us was really around, be conscious<br />

about what you do, what<br />

footprint you leave, what you<br />

buy, all those decisions that you<br />

make on a day to day basis can<br />

all make a difference.<br />

“It’s about animal care, environmental<br />

care and people care.”<br />

Ms Allden said Dr Goodall had<br />

been impressed with the work<br />

•From page 1<br />

Some of the worst affected<br />

streets are Travis Rd between<br />

Blue Gum Pl and Bower Ave,<br />

Blue Gum Pl itself and Wattle<br />

Drive between Travis Rd and<br />

Willryan Ave.<br />

Blue Gum Pl resident Chris<br />

Bird said he and his wife Lesley<br />

Bird were fed up with students<br />

parking badly in front of their<br />

house and sometimes driving<br />

down the narrow road too fast.<br />

“Every day there’s always someone<br />

parked directly over the fire<br />

hydrant. Some people drive in<br />

doing 50km/h, it’s scary,” he said.<br />

Mr Bird has asked Coastal<br />

Ward city councillor David East<br />

to do something about this.<br />

“One side has to be yellow-lined<br />

or something,” said Mr Bird.<br />

Cr East said: “I think it’s fair to<br />

say that (city council) staff were<br />

and are well aware of potential<br />

Richmond Community Garden<br />

had done for the environment<br />

and community.<br />

Its members had delivered<br />

a message of their own to Dr<br />

Goodall.<br />

Said Ms Allden: “Our message<br />

for her was the Ōtākaro Avon<br />

River Corridor presents an opportunity<br />

that really needs to<br />

be activated by the Government<br />

sooner rather than later so we<br />

can start planting up and start<br />

making a difference.”<br />

issues of parking around the<br />

school area and they’ve been<br />

monitoring it since the school<br />

opened and we need a period of<br />

monitoring before we can say,<br />

well these are the areas that need<br />

to be addressed.”<br />

STARSTRUCK:<br />

Co-founder<br />

of Richmond<br />

Community<br />

Garden Cathy<br />

Allden (left) and<br />

more than 30<br />

of the garden’s<br />

volunteers<br />

received a visit<br />

from worldrenowned<br />

conservationist<br />

Jane Goodall last<br />

Thursday. ​<br />

It had been an honour to meet<br />

such an icon, said Ms Allden.<br />

“Everyone was just like, you<br />

know, big cheesy grins and I<br />

think quite a few of us got quite<br />

emotional, really.”<br />

Dr Goodall is best known<br />

for completing more than 55<br />

years research into the social<br />

and family interactions of wild<br />

chimpanzees.<br />

She is widely regarded as the<br />

world’s leading expert in this<br />

field.<br />

City council staff met with<br />

the Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board on May 20 to discuss<br />

the issue and ways to address<br />

this.<br />

Options being considered included<br />

“a combination of parking<br />

John<br />

Laurenson<br />

Sue Hume<br />

limit lines, time restricted parking<br />

and/or stopping restrictions,”<br />

said Mr Thomas.<br />

Mrs Bird said she had called<br />

play a role in getting students<br />

to park and drive responsibly.<br />

‘Some people drive in doing 50km/h, it’s scary’<br />

FED UP: Parking and driving concerns have been raised<br />

by Wattle Drive residents.<br />

Clock tower repairs<br />

to start next month<br />

THE REPAIR of the New<br />

Brighton Clock Tower is set to<br />

begin next month.<br />

The city council capital delivery<br />

team has finished evaluating<br />

tenders from a number of contractors<br />

and should award the<br />

contract in the coming weeks.<br />

Once the repairs are under<br />

way they are expected to take six<br />

to eight months.<br />

The clock tower has been surrounded<br />

by scaffolding and covered<br />

in plastic since March last<br />

year, costing ratepayers $1500 a<br />

month.<br />

Repairs were due to start in<br />

September last year, but were<br />

delayed after detailed investigation<br />

revealed more damage and<br />

overdue maintenance-related<br />

issues than expected.<br />

Most of the damage has been<br />

caused by exposure to the coastal<br />

environment, which has caused<br />

erosion to structural steel.<br />

The repairs will involve the<br />

replacement of two cracked<br />

internal floors, addressing drainage<br />

issues and the application<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

of concrete and corrosion treatments.<br />

The project team will also look<br />

at alternative ways to mount the<br />

clock mechanisms within it to<br />

minimise vibrations. The shaking<br />

from the earthquake caused<br />

the clocks to show the incorrect<br />

time.<br />

It will be repainted in its<br />

original colours, green, sand and<br />

ochre.<br />

The New Brighton Clock<br />

Tower repairs will happen at the<br />

same time as the repair of the<br />

Scarborough Clock Tower in<br />

Sumner.<br />

But she said they had not done<br />

enough<br />

SBHS principal John Laurenson<br />

and AGHS principal Sue<br />

Hume said they had told students<br />

to be considerate and followed up<br />

with students directly when they<br />

had received photographs of their<br />

cars parked inappropriately.<br />

“There are ongoing traffic and<br />

parking issues that are arising,”<br />

said Mr Laurenson.<br />

“As and when the issues arise,<br />

we’re certainly raising that with<br />

the individuals. But I’m not<br />

aware that there is an issue of real<br />

significance.”<br />

Said Mrs Hume: “We are very<br />

pleased to be working with the<br />

council and with the ministry<br />

and the community board so that<br />

we can make sure that there are<br />

appropriate measures in place so<br />

that parking is not an issue for<br />

our neighbours.”<br />

STAY FLU-FREE<br />

getting the flu shot every year is your<br />

Teen model’s passport to success<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

WHEN BRIDIE Lancaster-<br />

Butcher was eight, her mother<br />

entered her in her first beauty<br />

pageant.<br />

The reason – to boost Bridie’s<br />

self-confidence.<br />

Now, the 13-year-old<br />

Avonside Girls’ High School<br />

student is one of 35 young<br />

models worldwide who have<br />

been selected to attend the<br />

Fashion Passport <strong>2019</strong> modelling<br />

workshop on the Amalfi Coast<br />

in Italy.<br />

She is the only New<br />

Zealander who has been invited<br />

to the workshop, which will<br />

take place from <strong>June</strong> 25 until<br />

<strong>June</strong> 30.<br />

Bridie said getting this opportunity<br />

was a dream come true.<br />

“I always wanted to like, do<br />

something overseas and go quite<br />

far and stuff and then when I<br />

found out I was going to go do<br />

this I was really, really excited<br />

because it was kind of like, my<br />

dream.”<br />

Her mother was shocked for<br />

more reasons than one when she<br />

heard the news.<br />

Said Deb Lancaster: “I didn’t<br />

think she’d get in and I was just<br />

like, holy s***, she got in, how are<br />

we supposed to pay for this?”<br />

She said the workshop alone<br />

STRIKE A POSE: Avonside Girls’ High School 13-year-old Bridie Lancaster-Butcher is the only New<br />

Zealander to be selected for the Fashion Passport <strong>2019</strong> modelling workshop on the Amalfi Coast<br />

in Italy in <strong>June</strong>.<br />

would cost more than $3000, but<br />

their fights were booked and she<br />

and Bridie’s father, Chris Butcher,<br />

would do just about anything to<br />

see their daughter succeed.<br />

Bridie said she was excited for<br />

the opportunity to work with<br />

fashion designers Adrianna<br />

Ostrowska Couture, Bel Ange<br />

Couture and Disney Channel star<br />

Chelsea Kane during the workshop.<br />

Bridie moved to Kalgoorlie,<br />

Australia, with her mum and dad<br />

in 2009 and built up quite the<br />

modelling resume before returning<br />

to Christchurch last year.<br />

She has appeared on the covers<br />

of A’ La Mode Child-Teen<br />

Magazine and Paris Chic Kids<br />

Magazine and featured in a<br />

number of others. Off the back of<br />

her modelling success, Bridie has<br />

also chosen to raise awareness of<br />

the work Heart Foundation NZ<br />

do, because she said heart conditions<br />

had impacted those close to<br />

her.<br />

She said modelling was a<br />

huge part of her life, but she<br />

made sure to work just as hard at<br />

school.<br />

“I’m just at school like head<br />

down, bum up, just get all your<br />

work done, stay focused. Then,<br />

when modelling comes around,<br />

try and like, balance it out and<br />

put school first, but still put all<br />

your effort into modelling.”<br />

Bridie said her friends at school<br />

called her “the humble model.”<br />

Bridie’s other hobbies included<br />

football, art, animals and swimming.<br />

She said she hoped the<br />

workshop later this month would<br />

open doors and help her achieve<br />

her ultimate goals.<br />

“I really want to maybe get into<br />

a film and do some commercials<br />

and maybe one day go to New<br />

York and do some runway.”<br />

Podcast tells rebarkable stories<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

FIRST THERE was Humans of<br />

New York – now there is Dogs of<br />

New Brighton.<br />

Heritage New Zealand outreach<br />

worker Michele Hollis has released<br />

the pilot episode of her podcast<br />

series – Dogs of New Brighton –<br />

which shares the lives of canines at<br />

the beach and their owners.<br />

“Almost every day I’ve walked<br />

on the beach, mostly with Jess<br />

(her 12-year-old bearded collie<br />

huntaway cross), but I’ve been<br />

thinking for months and months<br />

about how dogs bring people<br />

together in New Brighton,” she<br />

said.<br />

“Christchurch is a dog city, but<br />

New Brighton is the dog capital of<br />

Christchurch.”<br />

Ms Hollis said every dog has a<br />

story. She takes a little inspiration<br />

from the Humans of New York<br />

phenomenon, a photoblog and<br />

book of street portraits and<br />

interviews collected in the Big<br />

Apple.<br />

“It’s great to tell stories. They<br />

talk about regular people, this is<br />

regular dogs,” she said.<br />

Ms Hollis said walking along<br />

the beach with a dog opened<br />

conversation channels that were<br />

otherwise closed – something<br />

which should be celebrated.<br />

“You find out how they got<br />

the dog, what kind of breed it<br />

is, all those wonderful stories.<br />

You realise how many diverse<br />

experiences people pack into their<br />

lives,” she said.<br />

“You find actually people are<br />

really interesting and most people<br />

are really lovely.”<br />

Jess is the show’s co-host.<br />

“She’s a retired working dog.<br />

We rescued her from a stockyard.<br />

There was a meatworks just<br />

outside of Wellington . . . the<br />

shepherd just walked off the job.”<br />

Ms Hollis said Jess is “starting<br />

to slow down” but will still do<br />

anything for food, including cohost<br />

a podcast.<br />

“She’s a very even-tempered<br />

dog and is particularly attached<br />

to me. She loves going to the<br />

beach and just hanging out.”<br />

The pilot episode of Dogs of<br />

New Brighton features Shanti,<br />

a papillon from North New<br />

Brighton, and her owner Su<br />

Jorgensen, an organic hairdresser.<br />

“Shanti only has three legs<br />

because she was hit by a car<br />

before her new owner got her<br />

. . . at the hairdresser. Shanti will<br />

come and jump up and sit on<br />

your lap,” she said.<br />

The pilot was a success and<br />

now Ms Hollis is waiting to hear<br />

back from PlainsFM about a<br />

fortnightly Monday slot.<br />

“I want to celebrate our<br />

distinctness . . . New Brighton is a<br />

place that’s got a lot going for it.”<br />

However, Ms Hollis said while<br />

the first few episodes will focus<br />

on dogs from the Brighton area,<br />

there will be some from across<br />

the city. “I’ve already got my eye<br />

on a few people who bring their<br />

dogs in from across town.”<br />

Jess are co-hosting the Dogs<br />

WHAT’S ‘HOT’ AT HOUSE OF TRAVEL SHIRLEY<br />

Welcome to winter everyone!<br />

We hope the first half of the year has gone well for you all and that you’ve had a chance to get away for a holiday somewhere exciting!!<br />

In this month’s edition we are highlighting Canada and Alaska. This region has soared in popularity<br />

over the last few years and we are finding that you need to book almost 12 months in advance.<br />

It is perceived to be friendly, relaxed, safe and packed with all sorts of amazing places to be<br />

discovered. For this article we are going to focus on the West side of Canada and Alaska.<br />

Canada is perfect for wildlife lovers, keen photographers and those who want to witness some of<br />

the spectacular natural sights in this enormous country! Alaska, is popular for its “Inside Passage”<br />

and wonderful cruise itineraries, but still offers fantastic landscapes and exciting places to explore.<br />

We have highlighted a few of our favourites below….<br />

CANADA<br />

VANCOUVER & THE ROCKIES: Start off your holiday in the wonderful harbour city of Vancouver,<br />

with its sophisticated city centre of arts, shopping and entertainment. Still very close to nature and<br />

a visit to Grouse Mountain OR Vancouver Island are must do’s.<br />

From here a visit into the Rocky Mountains is an absolute highlight. There are many ways you can<br />

do this: A self-drive itinerary where we recommend you pre-book your hotels (places like Jasper<br />

and Lake Louise have limited accommodation options and the popular hotels sell out early); A<br />

guided holiday where everything is included and you sit back in your modern coaches with a<br />

fantastic view and listen to your experienced local experts tell you about the region OR a real treat<br />

is to include a couple of days on the Rocky Mountaineer Train. This offers a luxurious experience<br />

where you will enjoy the Rockies by rail, witness wonderful views and enjoy incredible service and<br />

culinary treats along the way.<br />

CRUISE<br />

THE INSIDE PASSAGE: Another popular add on to any Canada holiday is a cruise up the Inside Passage<br />

and into the Fjords of Alaska. Cruises are normally 7-10 nights in duration and can be return OR one-way<br />

if you want some time to explore Alaska and the likes of the Denali National Park, which we thoroughly<br />

recommend.<br />

A chance to get up close and personal with the monumental glaciers, icefields and iconic wildlife are all<br />

things you will experience on board a cruise in this region.<br />

There are many cruise lines to choose from in this region and it’s important we sit down with you to<br />

discuss what best suits your needs. Some of our favorite medium to large ship operators are Princess<br />

Cruises, Holland America Line and Celebrity Cruises. If you are looking for something a bit more<br />

explorative and personal, then we’d recommend Un-cruise who operate much smaller ships that give<br />

you a chance to experience the fjords in more depth. You can also find luxury small ship operators such<br />

as Crystal Cruises, Seaborn or Ponant. A real treat!<br />

Here at House of Travel Shirley we know it is super important to sit down and have a good chat<br />

about what is going to make your holiday special and more importantly one that you will have<br />

fabulous memories of. We thoroughly recommend booking as early as you can for Canada and<br />

Alaska, so start your 2020 planning now!<br />

HERE ARE SOME FACTS YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THIS TRAVEL REGION:<br />

** Best time to go: May to September<br />

** Did you know? Canada is the 2nd largest country in the world with the longest coastline<br />

** Air New Zealand and soon Air Canada offer direct flights Auckland to Vancouver<br />

**All New Zealand passport holders need to get an electronic visa to enter Canada<br />

** $115.00 NZD roughly converts to $100CAD – so not a bad as the greenback!<br />

IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN CRUISING IN THIS REGION, WE STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU COME ALONG TO OUR CRUISE EXPO ON JUNE 11TH AT THE CHRISTCHURCH<br />

Your Local Views<br />

Vision to prevent sea level rise<br />

New Brighton<br />

resident<br />

Cathy Sweet<br />

responds<br />

to previous<br />

stories on<br />

the effects<br />

climate<br />

change could have on the<br />

Coastal Ward. She offers a<br />

vision for how we can play<br />

our part in preventing sea<br />

level rise<br />

THE CITY council has heard the<br />

younger generation’s plea to take<br />

urgent action on climate change.<br />

Local government is also showing<br />

leadership in other countries,<br />

for example in the United States,<br />

123 states and 17 governors have<br />

created a climate alliance to keep<br />

to the emission limits in the 2015<br />

Paris Agreement.<br />

So how are we going to show<br />

vision and leadership here in<br />

Christchurch’s Coastal Ward?<br />

Our local residents are well<br />

known for having determination,<br />

Kiwi ingenuity and a love for our<br />

natural environment.<br />

With some inspired local<br />

leadership those strengths could<br />

be used to turn the wider New<br />

Brighton area into a real eco head<br />

turner for visitors, investors and<br />

city planners around the world.<br />

Our vast recreation reserves<br />

make us the ideal nature cycling<br />

mecca for Christchurch, with<br />

tracks partly made on the road<br />

side of the dunes from Southshore<br />

to Bottle Lake, and around<br />

the estuary.<br />

A river park track is planned<br />

and there’s already funding allocated<br />

for a track through the<br />

wastewater treatment ponds.<br />

Getting visitors here on bikes,<br />

foot, wheelchairs, scooters and<br />

e-scooters would be hugely enhanced<br />

with road cycle tracks on<br />

Pages Rd and links from Sumner<br />

and the Linwood Ave cycleway.<br />

Our local businesses need more<br />

visitors and our youth and others<br />

need the employment that local<br />

businesses can offer.<br />

There’s a bounty of images<br />

on the internet of international<br />

examples of towns with beautiful<br />

walking and cycle tracks,<br />

Potholes still a concern<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

SOME POTHOLES have<br />

been repaired on earthquakedamaged<br />

River Rd in Richmond.<br />

But, Richmond resident Cathy<br />

Allden says there are still large<br />

potholes along the road, which<br />

need to be fixed.<br />

<strong>Pegasus</strong> <strong>Post</strong><br />

reported in March,<br />

Ms Allden’s son<br />

Jack Allden was<br />

one of two Banks<br />

Avenue School<br />

Cathy<br />

Allden<br />

pupils who fell off<br />

their bikes on the<br />

same day when they<br />

hit potholes in the road.<br />

City council city streets maintenance<br />

manager Mark Pinner<br />

said repairs had been carried out<br />

since this.<br />

“Pothole repairs have been<br />

done in the River Rd area and<br />

the footpath concern has been<br />

corrected and is performing to<br />

specification.”<br />

Mr Pinner said one of the<br />

reasons why potholes on the road<br />

had been filled in was because<br />

the Christchurch Marathon,<br />

which took place on Sunday,<br />

passed through River Rd.<br />

Ms Allden said it was good<br />

that this happened, but the<br />

pothole, which knocked Jack and<br />

the other pupil off their bikes<br />

was yet to be fixed.<br />

Mr Pinner did not specify if<br />

CONCERNS: Some potholes<br />

on River Rd have been<br />

repaired, but more, including<br />

the one that knocked Cathy<br />

Allden’s son Jack Allden off<br />

his bike in March need to be<br />

fixed, Ms Allden says.<br />

this area specifically had been<br />

addressed.<br />

Ms Allden said more work<br />

needed to be done on River Rd.<br />

“I think, yes there’s a lot that<br />

needs to be done in that whole<br />

red zone, but if you’re going to<br />

exemplar one spot where we can<br />

kind of get the infrastructure<br />

back together and it can have an<br />

impact and actually affect people’s<br />

well-being . . . do it there first.”<br />

In December 2015, the city<br />

council agreed to reduce the<br />

level of service to a number of<br />

roads in the residential red zone,<br />

including River Rd.<br />

Got a recall letter?<br />

Get the repair work<br />

done now.

Quality service and experience<br />

keeps customers coming back<br />

Business continues to grow at the long-established<br />

New Brighton Automotive, says experienced mechanic<br />

Michael Cromwell, who has been running the busy<br />

Hawke Street workshop for three years now, with the<br />

support of parents Richard, who has years of experience<br />

in the industry, and Karen, who works in the office.<br />

The team includes two other qualified mechanics, and<br />

between them they offer the full range of automotive<br />

servicing and mechanical repairs, including diagnostic<br />

and electrical work, wheel alignment, WOFs and the<br />

supply and fitting of new tyres.<br />

A service that is particularly helpful for customers is<br />

the free towing service for breakdowns. New Brighton<br />

Automotive has a tow truck and will pick up vehicles<br />

from anywhere in the Christchurch area and take them<br />

back to the workshop for repairs.<br />

The business has built up a loyal customer<br />

base over the years, and while many of these<br />

people may have moved out of the area, they<br />

still take their vehicles there for servicing and<br />

repairs.<br />

“We even have customers coming from as<br />

far away as Wigram, Diamond Harbour and<br />

Rangiora,” Michael says.<br />

Knowing the inconvenience of being without a<br />

vehicle while it is in the workshop, New Brighton<br />

Automotive has nine loan cars available, so customers<br />

can stay on the road while their own car is being<br />

repaired. Their van is also available as a loan car for<br />

tradies.<br />

Thanks to Richard’s contacts in the industry, the<br />

workshop also carries out repairs and servicing for car<br />

dealers around Christchurch.<br />

New Brighton Automotive is located at 40 Hawke<br />

Street, New Brighton, behind the Z Energy service<br />

station. Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 8am<br />

to 5.30pm.<br />

To book in for any of their services, phone 388<br />

3630, or call in at the workshop. They are always<br />

happy to help.<br />

Students<br />

help turn<br />

red zone<br />

green<br />

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School<br />

students are taking part in a<br />

project to replant 1.5ha of the<br />

red zone in Burwood.<br />

They have joined forces with<br />

the Avon-Ōtākaro Forest Park<br />

group and Christ’s College<br />

students to get the job done.<br />

The first planting took place<br />

recently at Brooker Ave and<br />

involved volunteers from both<br />

schools.<br />

The next planting day will be<br />

on <strong>June</strong> 16 from 10am-noon at<br />

the same site.<br />

Led by Christ’s College head<br />

of physics David Newton,<br />

students teachers and families<br />

planted about 600 native<br />

seedlings during the first<br />

planting day.<br />

With support from AOFP and<br />

Land Information New Zealand,<br />

the combined group wanted to<br />

encourage the return of native<br />

birds and other fauna to the<br />

area.<br />

“We want to see more native<br />

birds in Christchurch and this<br />

is a huge opportunity to plant<br />

a forest that runs as a green<br />

spine through the city. The best<br />

thing you can do to encourage<br />

native bird life back to the city<br />

is to plant trees that become a<br />

year-round supply of bird food.<br />

The sorts of trees we’re planting<br />

were all originally grown in<br />

the area and include kahikatea,<br />

totara and five finger,” said Mr<br />

Newton.<br />

“It was a fantastic achievement<br />

and great to finally be able to do<br />

something for our city and the<br />

ecosystem that we are all part<br />

of,” he said.<br />

Mr Newton’s goal is to<br />

increase production and plant<br />

4000 seedlings next year. The<br />

seedlings have all been sourced<br />

from the area and have grown<br />

into larger plants at both SBHS<br />

and Christ’s College.<br />

THE BRIGHTON Gallery’s<br />

story started with an art<br />

exhibition at the old<br />

Harper’s Bazaar building in<br />

New Brighton mall in 2001.<br />

The exhibition made Jayne<br />

Cummins realise the work of<br />

artists in New Brighton and<br />

further afield was too good to<br />

hide away.<br />

But there were very few<br />

permanent spaces which would<br />

display work by up-and-coming<br />

artists for affordable prices.<br />

“I was in various galleries<br />

myself and it was always very<br />

hard to get into these galleries.<br />

You had to take some paintings<br />

along and see whether they<br />

were acceptable or not and there<br />

was such a high commission<br />

– you had to pay 40 per cent<br />

commission,” she said.<br />

“For somebody who didn’t<br />

have the confidence to go<br />

around to these galleries with<br />

their paintings, it would have<br />

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi<br />

been a daunting thing and<br />

they would never have gotten<br />

started.”<br />

This was when Cummins’<br />

vision for the Brighton Gallery<br />

was born.<br />

“This was the motivation – to<br />

give artists an opportunity.”<br />

The former arts student moved<br />

from England to Christchurch<br />

with her husband Eric and their<br />

children Julie Cloughley and<br />

Peter Cummins in 1974.<br />

Their first house was in<br />

Dallington and they lived there<br />

until earthquake damage forced<br />

them to move.<br />

Cummins now lives in<br />

Rangiora, but her love for art<br />

from the east is as strong as it<br />

has ever been.<br />

She helped form the Brighton<br />

Gallery Trust in 2002 and with<br />

funding support the gallery<br />

was opened at the old Harper’s<br />

Bazaar.<br />

It has stayed in New Brighton,<br />

in spite of having to move sites<br />

three times, most recently due<br />

to earthquake damage. It is now<br />

located in Carnaby Mall.<br />

The Brighton Gallery only<br />

charges artists a 20 per cent<br />

commission.<br />

However, <strong>Pegasus</strong> <strong>Post</strong><br />

reported last month the gallery<br />

was facing closure if it could not<br />

find more funding on top of the<br />

$4100 given to it by the Coastal-<br />

Burwood Community Board to<br />

pay rent.<br />

The Rata foundation came to<br />

the rescue with a $6000 grant,<br />

securing the gallery’s immediate<br />

future.<br />

Cummins said hundreds<br />

of artists of all skill levels had<br />

displayed a huge range of styles<br />

since the gallery opened.<br />

The diverse and subjective<br />

nature of the art displayed in the<br />

gallery is Cummins’ favourite<br />

part about it and art in general.<br />

She said this is also the gallery’s<br />

point of difference and a key<br />

reason it has survived for so<br />

long.<br />

“The fact that we keep<br />

changing everything every<br />

month, it’s keeping things alive.”<br />

“When an artist brings a<br />

painting in who’d simply like<br />

to exhibit there, we don’t judge<br />

it. It’s like that saying beauty is<br />

in the eye of the beholder and<br />

that’s the way it is with art, you<br />

either like it or you don’t.”<br />

Cummins said it is important<br />

to keep the Brighton Gallery<br />

open for years to come because<br />

very few other galleries in<br />

Christchurch offer the same<br />

level of opportunities to artists<br />

of all abilities.<br />

“Brighton has changed so<br />

much over the years since<br />

we’ve been there. Most of the<br />

buildings have gone and if (the<br />

gallery) closes it will be another<br />

nail in Brighton’s coffin as far as<br />

I can see.”<br />

New Brighton Bowling Club on a roll<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

THE NEW Brighton Bowling<br />

Club has been named<br />

Canterbury club of the year for<br />

the first time in its 104-year<br />

history.<br />

President Margaret Stacey said<br />

it was a huge thrill to earn the<br />

honour at the Bowls Canterbury<br />

awards night recently and she<br />

saw it as a win for the smaller<br />

clubs.<br />

“We were named one of<br />

three finalists and I think that<br />

was good kudos for us, but to<br />

be named winners was a real<br />

surprise to us because it’s the<br />

first time our club has won<br />

anything like this,” she said.<br />

The club has a membership of<br />

more than 150, with 47 playing<br />

members.<br />

“We’re hoping that winning<br />

this award will give us a chance<br />

to get out in the community and<br />

recruit more members.”<br />

Mrs Stacey said the club also<br />

received the gold club check<br />

award in November, which<br />

contributed to it being named<br />

club of the year.<br />

“The award is given out to<br />

clubs who have a business plan,<br />

they have budgets, health and<br />

safety policies in place and they<br />

go out and actively try to recruit<br />

new members,” she said.<br />

Mrs Stacey said the club offers<br />

free membership for first year<br />

bowlers and there is always<br />

plenty of support for those keen<br />

RISINGHOLM COMMUNITY CENTRE<br />

Cherished homestead<br />

restored and ready to re-open<br />

A cherished community resource in<br />

Opawa, closed since the February 2011<br />

earthquake, is set to re-open this week,<br />

fully restored.<br />

Risingholme, the historic homestead in<br />

Cholmondeley Avenue, was badly damaged<br />

in the earthquake, and then received<br />

further devastating damage in a fire on<br />

Queen’s Birthday weekend, 2016.<br />

The restoration work, which started<br />

in January 2018, is now complete, and<br />

tomorrow Christchurch Mayor Lianne<br />

Dalziel will officially reopen the homestead,<br />

handing it back to the community, which<br />

has been waiting eagerly to use and enjoy<br />

it again.<br />

Registered with the Historic Places Trust<br />

as a Category 2 historic place and now in<br />

its 75th year, this gracious building set in<br />

beautiful park surroundings was purchased<br />

and gifted to the city council in 1943 by<br />

John McKenzie, founder of the McKenzies<br />

retail stores, for the “health, amusement<br />

and instruction of the public”.<br />

That resulted in the ongoing development<br />

of educational and leisure classes, covering<br />

a wide diversity of topics and interests,<br />

which over the years have drawn people of<br />

all ages and backgrounds.<br />

Centre, the not-for-profit organisation that<br />

runs the Adult and Community Education<br />

classes, Wendel Karati, says people attend<br />

classes for many reasons, perhaps following<br />

trauma, wanting to learn a new skill, gain<br />

employment or to enjoy the company of<br />

like-minded people as they learn.<br />

“Coming to a class can help restore selfconfidence<br />

and bring new hope for people,”<br />

she says.<br />

During the closure of Risingholme<br />

Homestead and Hall the Risingholme<br />

Community Centre has continued to<br />

operate from 99 Hawford Road, directly<br />

behind Risingholme Park. Classes have<br />

also been held at Riccarton High School,<br />

Hornby High School and Girls’ High, as<br />

well as at other community facilities around<br />

the city.<br />

The full programme of classes is listed on<br />

the Risingholme website and enrolments<br />

can be completed on the website or by<br />

calling into the Risingholme Community<br />

Centre office, 22 Cholmondeley Avenue,<br />

Opawa.<br />

The hall at Risingholme has also<br />

been repaired and is again available for<br />

community groups to hire.<br />

OPEN DAY<br />

Saturday 8th <strong>June</strong><br />

10am - 2pm<br />

This Saturday, Risingholme is<br />

holding an open day for people to<br />

classes.<br />

“There has been huge community<br />

interest in the restoration, and this<br />

come and celebrate the reopening of<br />

Risingholme,” Wendel says.<br />

The open day will run from 10am-<br />

2pm. Refreshments will be available<br />

for purchase, including soup in a<br />

SENIOR LIVING<br />

Research supports<br />

eye health<br />

Are you Magnesium<br />

deficient?<br />

Nutritional researchers have<br />

discovered a range of nutrients<br />

that are essential for eye<br />

health. Some of the most<br />

essential nutrients that<br />

have been shown to<br />

protect and even improve<br />

eye function are:<br />

Selenium, is a trace mineral<br />

that is low in N.Z. soils and therefore in<br />

many of our foods. Researchers believe<br />

selenium may help prevent cataracts,<br />

macular degeneration (the leading cause<br />

of impaired vision in older people) and<br />

may also improve dry eyes and general eye<br />

health.<br />

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage<br />

of the population are low in. Zinc has been<br />

shown to help protect the eyes from the<br />

damaging effects of light as well as slow<br />

vision loss due to macular degeneration.<br />

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Betacarotene<br />

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper have<br />

potent antioxidant ability and help protect<br />

the eyes from damage<br />

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing<br />

nutrients that have been shown in<br />

landmark research to not only provide<br />

potent eye protection but may even help<br />

reverse some of the signs of age-related<br />

macular degeneration (AMD).<br />

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent<br />

antioxidants may help protect the lens<br />

and retina from damage and reduce the<br />

risk of cataracts. They also may<br />

help improve blood supply<br />

to the eye, strengthen the<br />

small capillaries of<br />

the eye and may help<br />

improve night vision,<br />

may alleviate many eye<br />

ailments including eye fatigue<br />

that may be caused by reading, driving and<br />

computers.<br />

Eyebright may help normalise eye<br />

pressure and reduce eye allergies.<br />

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential<br />

for correct eye function. It may also have a<br />

detoxifying affect on the eye.<br />

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,<br />

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.<br />

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection.<br />

It provides many nutrients, is rich in<br />

oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that<br />

are potent antioxidants that may protect<br />

eyesight.<br />

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic<br />

amount help provide comprehensive eye<br />

protection, may slow and possibly even<br />

help reverse eye damage that could lead<br />

to loss of vision. All these nutrients are<br />

available in an economical one a day easy<br />

to swallow capsule.<br />

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are always<br />

happy to help!<br />

Minerals are the building blocks of<br />

good health. Some minerals are only<br />

needed in trace amounts where others<br />

like magnesium are need in much larger<br />

amounts and on a regular basis to prevent<br />

deficiency and maintain optimum health.<br />

A large number of us do not obtain<br />

sufficient magnesium from our diet<br />

and may notice some of the common<br />

signs of deficiency. Some of the more<br />

common symptoms that may be caused by<br />

insufficient magnesium are: leg and muscle<br />

cramps, twitches, muscle pain, muscle<br />

fatigue and weakness, tremors of hands,<br />

blurred vision, restlessness, poor sleep,<br />

raised and/or unstable blood pressure,<br />

poor circulation, irregular heartbeat,<br />

shortness of breath, swallowing problems,<br />

dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation,<br />

irritability, seizures, poor concentration<br />

and many more.<br />

Although many young people now<br />

show signs of magnesium deficiency<br />

symptoms generally worsen as we age<br />

due to our digestive system being less<br />

efficient. Taking a magnesium supplement<br />

of sufficient strength may be a sensible<br />

option to top up our vital magnesium<br />

levels. Not all magnesium supplements<br />

however are well absorbed by everyone.<br />

Luckily GO- HEALTHY’S marine sourced<br />

magnesium offers excellent absorption due<br />

to its natural co-factors that include many<br />

trace nutrients that are low in the diet but<br />

essential for good health.<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Get rid of<br />

dampness in<br />

your house<br />

Now with the colder and wetter weather<br />

on its way, home owners are focusing on<br />

ways to make their homes comfortable,<br />

warm and healthy for their families<br />

throughout winter. Rising damp is an issue<br />

that affects many of our older properties<br />

which suffer from poor, or no, insulation.<br />

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many<br />

people have relocated to homes that suffer<br />

from rising damp which can be associated<br />

with health problems. Independent tests<br />

have shown that up to 40 litres of water<br />

can rise from the ground and enter a<br />

house every day, leading to mildew, mould,<br />

condensation and musty smells. Moulds<br />

can produce various allergic reactions<br />

and the frail, elderly and very young are<br />

especially vulnerable.<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a<br />

locally owned and operated firm. The<br />

team understands the problems caused<br />

by rising damp and are there to help.<br />

They will come to your damp home<br />

and pump a lightweight, flowable foam<br />

concrete under your timber floored home.<br />

Specially adapted for our New Zealand<br />

conditions and applications it provides a<br />

layer of protection against rising moisture.<br />

An unexpected benefit that the team at<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed<br />

recently, is that many owners of properties<br />

which had underfloor foam concrete<br />

installed, reported that it also provided<br />

protection against liquefaction after<br />

the earthquakes.<br />

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete<br />

Ltd now for your free, no obligation<br />

quote and complimentary appraisal of<br />

your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone<br />

<strong>03</strong> 376 4608 or 0508FOAMCO for more<br />

information.<br />

What makes a great<br />

Heat Transfer System?<br />

There are a number of Heat Transfer<br />

systems on the market. Smooth-Air<br />

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU<br />

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected<br />

components to optimise the system:<br />

They use insulated duct to transfer the<br />

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.<br />

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance<br />

and number of rooms, without being noisy.<br />

The diffusers send the heat to the floor,<br />

not to skim the across the ceilings. All<br />

components are good quality - designed to<br />

operate for years without problems.<br />

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of<br />

options: One to four rooms, with or without<br />

thermostat and with a choice of grilles and<br />

diffusers. HTUs improve energy efficiency<br />

in your house, as you are using excess<br />

heat. They have low power consumption<br />

- only 80watts for the three room system.<br />

Circulating air through the house also<br />

reduces the risk of damp.<br />

You can also choose the HTU version<br />

with downjet diffusers, which throw the<br />

warm air downwards to the floor. These<br />

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to<br />

regulate which room receives the most<br />

warm air.<br />

An average size living room requires 2-4<br />

kw of heating, yet appliances such as log<br />

burners generate heat in the region of 10<br />

-20kw. This leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of<br />

heat which sits at high level in the heated<br />

room, usually above door level.<br />

Heat transfer units work best where very<br />

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the<br />

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate<br />

warm air around the room with no<br />

layering, are not suitable as a heat source<br />

by themselves. However, if you have both<br />

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer<br />

systems with thermostat can work very<br />

well: The heat pump stops operating once<br />

the heat from the fire has heated the room,<br />

and the heat transfer kicks in above this<br />

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the<br />

ceiling.<br />

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand<br />

has b en a proached in a bid to<br />

fina ly repair the potholes in New<br />

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.<br />

Coastal-Burw od Ward city<br />

counci lor David East wants<br />

WorkSafe to pre sure the car<br />

park’s private owners into<br />

repairing the potholes which are<br />

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.<br />

WorkSafe chief inspector<br />

a se sment southern Da ren<br />

Handforth said it may be able to<br />

take action under the Health and<br />

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a<br />

person conducting a busine s or<br />

undertaking.”<br />

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe<br />

is aware of the concerns raised by<br />

Cr East abou the car park.<br />

“WorkSafe has completed<br />

an a se sment visi to the site<br />

and is engaging with the owner<br />

to advise them that it is their<br />

responsibility to manage their<br />

risks a propriately.”<br />

Different parts of the car park<br />

are owned by various people<br />

and the Coastal-Burw od<br />

Community Board recently<br />

wrote to them about its concerns<br />

around health and safety.<br />

Cr East said the bi gest i sue<br />

in the past has b en ge ting in<br />

touch with the landlords and<br />

owners and ge ting them to<br />

agr e to anything. “The board<br />

a preciates that multi-ownership<br />

of the parking space may present<br />

a difficulty in co-ordinating<br />

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged<br />

to pa s these concerns onto you,”<br />

said the le ter.<br />

One reply has b en received so<br />

far from an owner who is wi ling<br />

to discu s the i sue. However, a l<br />

the owners would have to agr e<br />

to undertake work.<br />

Cr East said there had b en<br />

a “number of incidences” in<br />

the car park of people injuring<br />

themselves which had gone<br />

unreported.<br />

“I’ve always though that it<br />

has b en quite amazing that we<br />

haven’t had any serious a cidents<br />

or senior citizens perhaps<br />

tri ping in those potholes and<br />

doing themselve some damage.”<br />

He is confiden the new<br />

a proach wi l bring results.<br />

“I think the WorkSafe<br />

involvement may prove to be the<br />

lever that we are l oking for.”<br />

New bid to fix potholes<br />

“Tom was a ba s player from<br />

wi ning best ba s player a the<br />

THE PAPANUI-I nes<br />

Community Board has taken the<br />

rare step of starting a petition<br />

to figh the city council over<br />

funding.<br />

Signatures are being co lected<br />

in a bid to get funding for a community<br />

facility in Shirley.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

removed funding for the centre<br />

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the<br />

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This<br />

was the site of the former community<br />

centre, which was badly<br />

damaged in the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake.<br />

The removal o funding<br />

prompted community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten<br />

to stand down, citing it as her “die<br />

in the ditch” project.<br />

Ms Jone said the board’s role<br />

is to represen the community,<br />

and by gathering signatures from<br />

residents, it was fulfi ling that<br />

role.<br />

“One of the roles of a community<br />

board is to represent and act<br />

as advocate for the interests of its<br />

community and this is what we<br />

are doing. The LTP and a nual<br />

plans are a l about lo bying the<br />

council.”<br />

Cave Rock<br />

Apartments’<br />

owners<br />

expect EQC<br />

sign-off<br />

this week<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave<br />

Rock Apartments ar expecting the<br />

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off<br />

on a se tlement agreemen this w ek.<br />

Body corporate chairman Mike<br />

White said the group had gone<br />

into mediation with IAG and EQC<br />

on February 20, and signed off<br />

on a deal with IAG on February<br />

2 – coincidenta ly seven years<br />

to the day after the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake. However, they<br />

are waiting for EQC to sign the<br />

agr ement.<br />

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted<br />

the agr ement, there’ l be no<br />

problem with them doing that.”<br />

The apartment suffered damage<br />

in the February and <strong>June</strong>, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the<br />

difference betw en indemnity value,<br />

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,<br />

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body<br />

corporate.<br />

The mediation agr ement<br />

prevented Mr White from disclosing<br />

the se tlement amount, but he said it<br />

involved the two parties paying “a bit<br />

more money than they’d wanted to<br />

earlier.”<br />

A WOOLSTON butcher proved<br />

to be a cut above the rest in an<br />

international competition.<br />

New World Fe ry Rd butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently<br />

came second a the World<br />

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern<br />

Ireland.<br />

It was the firs time Mr Garth<br />

had competed in the cha lenge<br />

and he was “rea ly proud” of<br />

how the team performed.<br />

“We produced some top quality<br />

products and came away<br />

with a g od result so we’re very<br />

ha py,” he said.<br />

The preparation for this year’s<br />

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was<br />

intense as the team members<br />

met in Auckland every two<br />

months for lengthy w ekend<br />

practices.<br />

Mr Garth, who has b en a<br />

butcher for 14 years, said the<br />

competition brought back his<br />

pa sion for the job.<br />

“Doing a l thi stuff and<br />

m eting new people, s eing new<br />

ideas, it just brings that flair<br />

back for you,” he said.<br />

Mr Garth hopes to own a<br />

butcher shop of his own someday<br />

but says for now he wi l focus<br />

on ge ting mor experience<br />

and on the 2020 cha lenge.<br />

“In two years’ time, we’ l be<br />

going back to try and win the<br />

title,” he said.<br />

A CRACKDOWN on mobile<br />

However, the public has li tle<br />

interest in having input into the<br />

Only eight submi sions were<br />

received for a potential bylaw<br />

aimed at regulating commercial<br />

activities in public places.<br />

The district council wi l be<br />

holding a hearing for the Public<br />

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial<br />

Activities and Events in<br />

Public Places.<br />

A hearing i scheduled to be<br />

held on Thursday.<br />

The bylaw comes as an increasing<br />

number of mobile traders<br />

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,<br />

especia ly during the summer<br />

months.<br />

In the past year, the district<br />

council has received five inquiries<br />

about se ting up a mobile busine s<br />

on private or public land.<br />

AN U PER Ri carton butcher<br />

has proven himself to be a cut<br />

above his Au sie rivals at an<br />

international competition.<br />

Elite Meats owner Corey<br />

Winder was named in the a l<br />

star team a the World Butchers’<br />

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.<br />

Mr Winder and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which<br />

includes W olston butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth, finished second<br />

in the competition.<br />

He said the cha lenge started<br />

as a “transtasman test match”<br />

seven years ago.<br />

The preparation for this<br />

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge<br />

was intense as the team<br />

members met in Auckland<br />

every two months for lengthy<br />

w ekend practices. Mr Winder<br />

said coming second against 1<br />

other countries was a “fantastic”<br />

result.<br />

“To get second behind Ireland<br />

was a huge achievement and to<br />

be ahead of Australia is an<br />

even bi ger thing for us,” he<br />

said.<br />

But Mr Winder admires the<br />

Australian team.<br />

“Those guys over there<br />

[Australia] are on top of their<br />

game, they do a g od job,” he<br />

said.<br />

“And it just showcases that<br />

New Zealand has got some<br />

of the best butchers in the<br />

world,” he said.<br />

Mr Winder has b en a butcher<br />

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if<br />

the city council would endorse the<br />

“I’d like to think so because the<br />

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand<br />

has b en a proached in a bid to<br />

fina ly repair the potholes in New<br />

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.<br />

Coastal-Burw od Ward city<br />

counci lor David East wants<br />

WorkSafe to pre sure the car<br />

park’s private owners into<br />

repairing the potholes which are<br />

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.<br />

WorkSafe chief inspector<br />

a se sment southern Da ren<br />

Handforth said it may be able to<br />

take action under the Health and<br />

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a<br />

person conducting a busine s or<br />

undertaking.”<br />

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe<br />

is aware of the concerns raised by<br />

Cr East abou the car park.<br />

“WorkSafe has completed<br />

an a se sment visi to the site<br />

and is engaging with the owner<br />

to advise them that it is their<br />

responsibility to manage their<br />

risks a propriately.”<br />

Different parts of the car park<br />

are owned by various people<br />

and the Coastal-Burw od<br />

Community Board recently<br />

wrote to them about its concerns<br />

around health and safety.<br />

Cr East said the bi gest i sue<br />

in the past has b en ge ting in<br />

touch with the landlords and<br />

owners and ge ting them to<br />

agr e to anything. “The board<br />

a preciates that multi-ownership<br />

of the parking space may present<br />

a difficulty in co-ordinating<br />

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged<br />

to pa s these concerns onto you,”<br />

said the le ter.<br />

One reply has b en received so<br />

far from an owner who is wi ling<br />

to discu s the i sue. However, a l<br />

the owners would have to agr e<br />

to undertake work.<br />

Cr East said there had b en<br />

a “number of incidences” in<br />

the car park of people injuring<br />

themselves which had gone<br />

unreported.<br />

“I’ve always though that it<br />

has b en quite amazing that we<br />

haven’t had any serious a cidents<br />

or senior citizens perhaps<br />

tri ping in those potholes and<br />

doing themselve some damage.”<br />

He is confiden the new<br />

a proach wi l bring results.<br />

“I think the WorkSafe<br />

involvement may prove to be the<br />

lever that we are l oking for.”<br />

THE PAPANUI-I nes<br />

Community Board has taken the<br />

rare step of starting a petition<br />

to figh the city council over<br />

funding.<br />

Signatures are being co lected<br />

in a bid to get funding for a community<br />

facility in Shirley.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

removed funding for the centre<br />

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the<br />

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This<br />

was the site of the former community<br />

centre, which was badly<br />

damaged in the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake.<br />

The removal o funding<br />

prompted community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten<br />

to stand down, citing it as her “die<br />

in the ditch” project.<br />

Ms Jone said the board’s role<br />

is to represen the community,<br />

and by gathering signatures from<br />

residents, it was fulfi ling that<br />

role.<br />

“One of the roles of a community<br />

board is to represent and act<br />

as advocate for the interests of its<br />

community and this is what we<br />

are doing. The LTP and a nual<br />

plans are a l about lo bying the<br />

council.”<br />

Cave Rock<br />

Apartments’<br />

owners<br />

expect EQC<br />

sign-off<br />

this week<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave<br />

Rock Apartments ar expecting the<br />

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off<br />

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.<br />

Body corporate chairman Mike<br />

White said the group had gone<br />

into mediation with IAG and EQC<br />

on February 20, and signed off<br />

on a deal with IAG on February<br />

2 – coincidenta ly seven years<br />

to the day after the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake. However, they<br />

are waiting for EQC to sign the<br />

agr ement.<br />

“Given that EQC actually drafted<br />

the agr ement, there’ l be no<br />

problem with them doing that.”<br />

The apartment suffered damage<br />

in the February and <strong>June</strong>, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the<br />

difference betw en indemnity value,<br />

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,<br />

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body<br />

corporate.<br />

The mediation agr ement<br />

prevented Mr White from disclosing<br />

the se tlement amount, but he said it<br />

involved the two parties paying “a bit<br />

more money than they’d wanted to<br />

earlier.”<br />

A WOOLSTON butcher proved<br />

to be a cut above the rest in an<br />

international competition.<br />

New World Fe ry Rd butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently<br />

came second a the World<br />

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern<br />

Ireland.<br />

It was the firs time Mr Garth<br />

had competed in the cha lenge<br />

and he was “rea ly proud” of<br />

how the team performed.<br />

“We produced some top quality<br />

products and came away<br />

with a g od result so we’re very<br />

ha py,” he said.<br />

The preparation for this year’s<br />

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was<br />

intense as the team members<br />

met in Auckland every two<br />

months for lengthy w ekend<br />

practices.<br />

Mr Garth, who has b en a<br />

butcher for 14 years, said the<br />

competition brought back his<br />

pa sion for the job.<br />

“Doing a l thi stuff and<br />

m eting new people, s eing new<br />

ideas, it just brings that flair<br />

back for you,” he said.<br />

Mr Garth hopes to own a<br />

butcher shop of his own someday<br />

but says for now he wi l focus<br />

on ge ting mor experience<br />

and on the 2020 cha lenge.<br />

“In two years’ time, we’ l be<br />

going back to try and win the<br />

title,” he said.<br />

Only eight submi sions were<br />

holding a hearing for the Public<br />

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial<br />

Activities and Events in<br />

Public Places.<br />

A hearing i scheduled to be<br />

held on Thursday.<br />

The bylaw comes as an increasing<br />

number of mobile traders<br />

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,<br />

especia ly during the summer<br />

months.<br />

In the past year, the district<br />

council has received five inquiries<br />

about se ting up a mobile busine s<br />

AN U PER Ri carton butcher<br />

has proven himself to be a cut<br />

above his Au sie rivals at an<br />

international competition.<br />

Elite Meats owner Corey<br />

Winder was named in the a l<br />

star team a the World Butchers’<br />

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.<br />

Mr Winder and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which<br />

includes W olston butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth, finished second<br />

in the competition.<br />

He said the cha lenge started<br />

as a “transtasman test match”<br />

seven years ago.<br />

The preparation for this<br />

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge<br />

was intense as the team<br />

members met in Auckland<br />

every two months for lengthy<br />

w ekend practices. Mr Winder<br />

said coming second against 1<br />

other countries was a “fantastic”<br />

result.<br />

“To get second behind Ireland<br />

was a huge achievement and to<br />

be ahead of Australia is an<br />

even bi ger thing for us,” he<br />

said.<br />

But Mr Winder admires the<br />

Australian team.<br />

“Those guys over there<br />

[Australia] are on top of their<br />

game, they do a g od job,” he<br />

said.<br />

“And it just showcases that<br />

New Zealand has got some<br />

of the best butchers in the<br />

world,” he said.<br />
