Students’ cars put pressure

on streets close to schools

• By Matt Slaughter

RESIDENTS ARE fed up with

students at Shirley Boys’ and

Avonside Girls’ High Schools

parking and driving badly in streets

around their new school.

Some nearby residents have raised

concerns with the schools and the

city council about the issues.

The schools say they are aware

of these concerns and are working

with the city council and students to

address them.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas said it was

working to establish the best way

to manage congestion in streets

surrounding the new Travis Rd site.

“There is increased all-day

parking demand on streets in the

vicinity of the schools, as well

as short-term parking demand

associated with students being

dropped off and picked up in the

before and after school periods,” he

said.

“Staff have been monitoring

parking demand in this area

and gathering information to

fully understand where parking

associated with the schools is

occurring and what issues are

associated with that parking.

That information will enable the

development of appropriate parking

management interventions.”

NOSE TO TAIL: Residents in streets near the new Shirley Boys’/Avonside Girls’ High School site, including Blue Gum Pl, say more

needs to be done to stop students from parking and driving badly.

from the editor’s desk

I SYMPATHISE with people living near

the new Shirley Boys’/Avonside Girls’

campus at QE II (see page 1).

But I suspect there will be no easy answer

to residents’ concerns about parking and

driving behaviour.

Many high school students now have cars and they have to

park somewhere.

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

or walking was the usual way to get to and from school.

Now and then you might have taken the family car to school

(which on some occasions was tested out on the quarter mile

strip on Frosts Rd, but let’s not go there).

Time will tell what the city council and schools come up with

solution-wise. We will keep you posted.

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Slaughter

SOME BURWOOD Hospital

patients are being put in

danger when trying to cross

the Burwood and Mairehau

Rds intersection, says the New

Zealand Spinal Trust.

The trust’s members want

traffic lights to be installed at

the intersection. A site visit is

set to take place

between trust

representatives,

city council staff

and Burwood

Ward city

councillor Glenn

Glenn

Livingstone

Steffan

Thomas

Livingstone,

where the trust

will attempt to

show the need

for lights.

City council

transport

operations

manager Steffan

Thomas said the

intersection is

on its radar, but

it is too early

to determine how it would be

improved.

“There is a budget allocated

in the current Long Term Plan

for intersection improvements

at the Burwood-Mairehau

Patients in danger crossing road

WATCH OUT: Hans Wouters (left) and Brett Ladbrook, of the

New Zealand Spinal Trust, say the Burwood and Mairehau

Rds intersection is too dangerous for wheelchair users.

intersection and scheme options

are currently being investigated.

How and when the project

progresses will be determined

through the Annual Plan

process, which will be adopted

in late June. The intersection

has been on budget since the

2015-25 Long Term Plan,” Mr

Thomas said.

Spinal trust senior pair

support co-ordinator Brett

Ladbrook said traffic lights

would be the safest option.

“I’ve seen what they’ve done

to the Burwood Rd and QE II

intersection when the traffic

lights were put in there from a

roundabout and that made a

huge difference to the flow of

traffic, but also to pedestrians

being able to get across a very,

very busy road.”

Mr Ladbrook, who uses a

wheelchair, said the intersection,

which patients cross to get to

the nearby shops, is becoming

increasingly busy.

“With the advent of the

Prestons Rd subdivision coming

in, the traffic flow there now is

worse than it’s ever been.”

Mr Ladbrook said at the start

of the year, a woman fell from

her wheelchair and fractured

her foot crossing the road.

The only protection available

to people crossing the road

is four traffic islands and a

roundabout.

Spinal trust chief executive

Hans Wouters said motorists

will sometimes drive through

the roundabout without taking

time to look for pedestrians.

There is only 3-4m between

the traffic islands and each

side of the road, but this is a

long way for inexperienced

wheelchair users, Mr Wouters

said.

“They are unskilled

wheelchair users, who are brand

new to disability, lacking in

skills and confidence.

“If someone zips around

the corner coming from the

opposite direction, you could be

compromised.”

Cr Livingstone said a date is

yet to be set for the site meeting.

SAND DUNE MAINTENANCE

Work to trim overgrown areas

of the sand dune track from

Waimairi to New Brighton has

begun. On May 20, the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

requested city council staff

investigate if these areas could

be trimmed. Staff will carry out

another trim before the summer

holidays and at the start of next

autumn.

THOMSON PARK RENEWAL

A community open day will be

held tomorrow between 3.15

and 4.30pm to celebrate the

completion of the project to

upgrade Thomson Park. This

has involved upgrading the

car park, constructing a

basketball court and making

landscaping and garden

improvements.

A Biker’s Life

Misadventure on (and off) two wheels

By Henry Cole

A BIKER’S LIFE is the dramatic, humorous and candid memoir of

one of the most recognisable names in motorcycling.

Henry Cole’s passion for motorbikes began when, at the age of

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

Redbeard’s corrugated iron shed was ‘stuffed to the gills with old

motorbikes’ which Henry helped rebuild and ride. Since then,

Henry’s life can be charted through the bikes and journeys he has

been on - from a stifling public-school education, via many years

battling addiction, to the big-sky iconic routes Henry has ridden

for over twenty series as presenter of numerous TV shows.

This book reminds millions of motorcyclists why their bike gives them the freedom to be

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

become part of a worldwide community of kindred spirits - those of us who will not be

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

Repurposed

New Zealand Homes Using Upcycled Materials

and Spaces

By Catherine Foster

New ways to use old materials, spaces and buildings, by the

author of Small House Living.

An on-trend home design book, featuring an inspiring array

of homes that have made good use of recycled and upcycled

materials, structures, spaces and furnishings. Included in the

mix are industrial and farm buildings that have been converted

for living and furnished appropriately with vintage and repurposed industrial fittings.

The book features 20 homes located throughout the country that feature a variety of clever

solutions and design styles. There is everything from repurposed container homes to army

barracks, farm utility buildings, churches and urban spaces finished with upcycled and

repurposed furnishings.

Tim Cook

The Genius Leading Apple into a New era of

Success

By Leander Kahney

In 2011, Tim Cook took on an impossible task - following in the

footsteps of one of history’s greatest business visionaries, Steve

Jobs. Facing worldwide scrutiny, Cook (who was often described

as shy, unassuming and unimaginative) defied all expectations.

Under Cook’s leadership Apple has soared: its stock has nearly

tripled to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company. From

the massive growth of the iPhone to new victories like the Apple

Watch, Cook is leading Apple to a new era of success.

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

Cook has introduced a new style of management that emphasizes kindness, collaboration

and honesty, and has quietly pushed Apple to support sexual and racial equal rights and

invest heavily in renewable energy.

The Billion Dollar Bonfire

How Allan Hubbard and the Government

destroyed South Canterbury Finance

By Chris Lee

The collapse of South Canterbury Finance (SCF) is one of the

biggest New Zealand stories of the last decade.

The sweep of events, from Timaru to the Beehive, include some

of the most revealing moments on issues critical to this country

- everything from poor governance and systemic issues in the

finance sector, through to the structural risks this exposed and

the costs it ultimately presented to all New Zealanders. There has

not yet been a book that has attempted to tell this story, certainly

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

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

Zealand financial advisor and a protagonist in the narrative. As he writes in the opening

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

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

concern that this could all happen again without significant changes to our law and the

culture of the capital markets industry.

Jane Goodall vists gardens

GLOBALLY-renowned

Community Garden members,

leaving them starstruck.

The garden’s co-founder Cathy

to lead Dr Goodall on a

Last Thursday, Ms Allden and

about 30 of the garden’s volunteers

joined Dr Goodall on the

walk, with Ms Allden telling its

story along the way.

Once they arrived they shared

a morning tea and Dr Goodall

spoke to the group.

Said Ms Allden: “Her message

“Every day there’s always someone

Clock tower repairs

to start next month

THE REPAIR of the New

begin next month.

The city council capital delivery

team has finished evaluating

tenders from a number of contractors

and should award the

contract in the coming weeks.

Once the repairs are under

The clock tower has been surrounded

by scaffolding and covered

in plastic since March last

year, costing ratepayers $1500 a

month.

Repairs were due to start in

September last year, but were

delayed after detailed investigation

Most of the damage has been

caused by exposure to the coastal

Teen model’s passport to success

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Slaughter

WHEN BRIDIE Lancaster-

Butcher was eight, her mother

entered her in her first beauty

pageant.

The reason – to boost Bridie’s

self-confidence.

Now, the 13-year-old

Avonside Girls’ High School

student is one of 35 young

models worldwide who have

been selected to attend the

Fashion Passport 2019 modelling

workshop on the Amalfi Coast

in Italy.

She is the only New

Zealander who has been invited

to the workshop, which will

take place from June 25 until

June 30.

Bridie said getting this opportunity

was a dream come true.

“I always wanted to like, do

something overseas and go quite

far and stuff and then when I

found out I was going to go do

this I was really, really excited

because it was kind of like, my

dream.”

Her mother was shocked for

more reasons than one when she

heard the news.

Said Deb Lancaster: “I didn’t

think she’d get in and I was just

like, holy s***, she got in, how are

we supposed to pay for this?”

She said the workshop alone

would cost more than $3000, but

their fights were booked and she

and Bridie’s father, Chris Butcher,

would do just about anything to

see their daughter succeed.

Bridie said she was excited for

the opportunity to work with

fashion designers Adrianna

Ostrowska Couture, Bel Ange

Couture and Disney Channel star

Chelsea Kane during the workshop.

Bridie moved to Kalgoorlie,

Australia, with her mum and dad

in 2009 and built up quite the

modelling resume before returning

to Christchurch last year.

She has appeared on the covers

of A’ La Mode Child-Teen

Magazine and Paris Chic Kids

Magazine and featured in a

number of others. Off the back of

her modelling success, Bridie has

also chosen to raise awareness of

the work Heart Foundation NZ

do, because she said heart conditions

had impacted those close to

her.

She said modelling was a

huge part of her life, but she

made sure to work just as hard at

school.

“I’m just at school like head

down, bum up, just get all your

work done, stay focused. Then,

when modelling comes around,

try and like, balance it out and

put school first, but still put all

your effort into modelling.”

Bridie said her friends at school

called her “the humble model.”

Bridie’s other hobbies included

football, art, animals and swimming.

She said she hoped the

workshop later this month would

open doors and help her achieve

her ultimate goals.

“I really want to maybe get into

a film and do some commercials

and maybe one day go to New

York and do some runway.”

Podcast tells rebarkable stories

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

FIRST THERE was Humans of

New York – now there is Dogs of

New Brighton.

Heritage New Zealand outreach

worker Michele Hollis has released

the pilot episode of her podcast

series – Dogs of New Brighton –

which shares the lives of canines at

the beach and their owners.

“Almost every day I’ve walked

on the beach, mostly with Jess

(her 12-year-old bearded collie

huntaway cross), but I’ve been

thinking for months and months

about how dogs bring people

together in New Brighton,” she

said.

“Christchurch is a dog city, but

New Brighton is the dog capital of

Christchurch.”

Ms Hollis said every dog has a

story. She takes a little inspiration

from the Humans of New York

phenomenon, a photoblog and

book of street portraits and

interviews collected in the Big

Apple.

“It’s great to tell stories. They

talk about regular people, this is

regular dogs,” she said.

Ms Hollis said walking along

the beach with a dog opened

conversation channels that were

otherwise closed – something

which should be celebrated.

“You find out how they got

the dog, what kind of breed it

is, all those wonderful stories.

You realise how many diverse

experiences people pack into their

lives,” she said.

“You find actually people are

really interesting and most people

are really lovely.”

Jess is the show’s co-host.

“She’s a retired working dog.

We rescued her from a stockyard.

There was a meatworks just

outside of Wellington . . . the

shepherd just walked off the job.”

Ms Hollis said Jess is “starting

to slow down” but will still do

anything for food, including cohost

a podcast.

“She’s a very even-tempered

dog and is particularly attached

to me. She loves going to the

beach and just hanging out.”

The pilot episode of Dogs of

New Brighton features Shanti,

a papillon from North New

Brighton, and her owner Su

Jorgensen, an organic hairdresser.

“Shanti only has three legs

because she was hit by a car

before her new owner got her

. . . at the hairdresser. Shanti will

come and jump up and sit on

your lap,” she said.

The pilot was a success and

now Ms Hollis is waiting to hear

back from PlainsFM about a

fortnightly Monday slot.

“I want to celebrate our

distinctness . . . New Brighton is a

place that’s got a lot going for it.”

However, Ms Hollis said while

the first few episodes will focus

on dogs from the Brighton area,

there will be some from across

the city. “I’ve already got my eye

on a few people who bring their

dogs in from across town.”

DOGGONE: Michele Hollis and

Jess are co-hosting the Dogs

of New Brighton podcast,

which looks into the stories

behind the area’s canines.

WHAT’S ‘HOT’ AT HOUSE OF TRAVEL SHIRLEY

Welcome to winter everyone!

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!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

and wonderful cruise itineraries, but still offers fantastic landscapes and exciting places to explore.

We have highlighted a few of our favourites below….

CANADA

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

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

a visit to Grouse Mountain OR Vancouver Island are must do’s.

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

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

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

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

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

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

where you will enjoy the Rockies by rail, witness wonderful views and enjoy incredible service and

culinary treats along the way.

CRUISE

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

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

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

recommend.

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

things you will experience on board a cruise in this region.

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

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

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

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

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

as Crystal Cruises, Seaborn or Ponant. A real treat!

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

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

fabulous memories of. We thoroughly recommend booking as early as you can for Canada and

Alaska, so start your 2020 planning now!

HERE ARE SOME FACTS YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THIS TRAVEL REGION:

** Best time to go: May to September

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

** Air New Zealand and soon Air Canada offer direct flights Auckland to Vancouver

**All New Zealand passport holders need to get an electronic visa to enter Canada

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

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

ART GALLERY FROM 6-8PM. AT 7.45PM WE WILL HAVE A DEDICATED FILM PRESENTATION ON THIS REGION. GET THERE EARLY TO SECURE A SEAT!! FREE ENTRY.

Your Local Views

Vision to prevent sea level rise

New Brighton

resident

Cathy Sweet

responds

to previous

stories on

the effects

climate

change could have on the

Coastal Ward. She offers a

vision for how we can play

our part in preventing sea

level rise

THE CITY council has heard the

younger generation’s plea to take

urgent action on climate change.

Local government is also showing

leadership in other countries,

for example in the United States,

123 states and 17 governors have

created a climate alliance to keep

to the emission limits in the 2015

Paris Agreement.

So how are we going to show

vision and leadership here in

Christchurch’s Coastal Ward?

Our local residents are well

known for having determination,

Kiwi ingenuity and a love for our

natural environment.

With some inspired local

leadership those strengths could

be used to turn the wider New

Brighton area into a real eco head

turner for visitors, investors and

city planners around the world.

Our vast recreation reserves

make us the ideal nature cycling

mecca for Christchurch, with

tracks partly made on the road

side of the dunes from Southshore

to Bottle Lake, and around

the estuary.

A river park track is planned

and there’s already funding allocated

for a track through the

wastewater treatment ponds.

Getting visitors here on bikes,

foot, wheelchairs, scooters and

e-scooters would be hugely enhanced

with road cycle tracks on

Pages Rd and links from Sumner

and the Linwood Ave cycleway.

Our local businesses need more

visitors and our youth and others

need the employment that local

businesses can offer.

There’s a bounty of images

on the internet of international

examples of towns with beautiful

walking and cycle tracks,

attractive wind and solar power

generation, flood resistant planting

and popular trails through

nature habitats.

We just need a new vision, away

from business as usual spending

of billions on conventional

building design, congested roads

and car parks. Money needs to be

invested in the latest eco design

and technology. Wind turbines or

solar for our hot pools folks?

Potholes still a concern

• By Matt Slaughter

SOME POTHOLES have

been repaired on earthquakedamaged

River Rd in Richmond.

But, Richmond resident Cathy

Allden says there are still large

potholes along the road, which

need to be fixed.

Pegasus Post

reported in March,

Ms Allden’s son

Jack Allden was

one of two Banks

Avenue School

Cathy

Allden

pupils who fell off

their bikes on the

same day when they

hit potholes in the road.

City council city streets maintenance

manager Mark Pinner

said repairs had been carried out

since this.

“Pothole repairs have been

done in the River Rd area and

the footpath concern has been

corrected and is performing to

specification.”

Mr Pinner said one of the

reasons why potholes on the road

had been filled in was because

the Christchurch Marathon,

which took place on Sunday,

passed through River Rd.

Ms Allden said it was good

that this happened, but the

pothole, which knocked Jack and

the other pupil off their bikes

was yet to be fixed.

Mr Pinner did not specify if

CONCERNS: Some potholes

on River Rd have been

repaired, but more, including

the one that knocked Cathy

Allden’s son Jack Allden off

his bike in March need to be

fixed, Ms Allden says.

this area specifically had been

addressed.

Ms Allden said more work

needed to be done on River Rd.

“I think, yes there’s a lot that

needs to be done in that whole

red zone, but if you’re going to

exemplar one spot where we can

kind of get the infrastructure

back together and it can have an

impact and actually affect people’s

well-being . . . do it there first.”

In December 2015, the city

council agreed to reduce the

level of service to a number of

roads in the residential red zone,

including River Rd.

Get the repair work

done now.

Quality service and experience

keeps customers coming back

Business continues to grow at the long-established

New Brighton Automotive, says experienced mechanic

Michael Cromwell, who has been running the busy

Hawke Street workshop for three years now, with the

support of parents Richard, who has years of experience

in the industry, and Karen, who works in the office.

The team includes two other qualified mechanics, and

between them they offer the full range of automotive

servicing and mechanical repairs, including diagnostic

and electrical work, wheel alignment, WOFs and the

supply and fitting of new tyres.

A service that is particularly helpful for customers is

the free towing service for breakdowns. New Brighton

Automotive has a tow truck and will pick up vehicles

from anywhere in the Christchurch area and take them

back to the workshop for repairs.

The business has built up a loyal customer

base over the years, and while many of these

people may have moved out of the area, they

still take their vehicles there for servicing and

repairs.

“We even have customers coming from as

far away as Wigram, Diamond Harbour and

Rangiora,” Michael says.

Knowing the inconvenience of being without a

vehicle while it is in the workshop, New Brighton

Automotive has nine loan cars available, so customers

can stay on the road while their own car is being

repaired. Their van is also available as a loan car for

tradies.

Thanks to Richard’s contacts in the industry, the

workshop also carries out repairs and servicing for car

dealers around Christchurch.

New Brighton Automotive is located at 40 Hawke

Street, New Brighton, behind the Z Energy service

station. Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 8am

to 5.30pm.

To book in for any of their services, phone 388

3630, or call in at the workshop. They are always

happy to help.

Students

help turn

red zone

green

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School

students are taking part in a

project to replant 1.5ha of the

red zone in Burwood.

They have joined forces with

the Avon-Ōtākaro Forest Park

group and Christ’s College

students to get the job done.

The first planting took place

recently at Brooker Ave and

involved volunteers from both

schools.

The next planting day will be

on June 16 from 10am-noon at

the same site.

Led by Christ’s College head

of physics David Newton,

students teachers and families

planted about 600 native

seedlings during the first

planting day.

With support from AOFP and

Land Information New Zealand,

the combined group wanted to

encourage the return of native

birds and other fauna to the

area.

“We want to see more native

birds in Christchurch and this

is a huge opportunity to plant

a forest that runs as a green

spine through the city. The best

thing you can do to encourage

native bird life back to the city

is to plant trees that become a

year-round supply of bird food.

The sorts of trees we’re planting

were all originally grown in

the area and include kahikatea,

totara and five finger,” said Mr

Newton.

“It was a fantastic achievement

and great to finally be able to do

something for our city and the

ecosystem that we are all part

of,” he said.

Mr Newton’s goal is to

increase production and plant

4000 seedlings next year. The

seedlings have all been sourced

from the area and have grown

into larger plants at both SBHS

and Christ’s College.

THE BRIGHTON Gallery’s

story started with an art

exhibition at the old

Harper’s Bazaar building in

New Brighton mall in 2001.

The exhibition made Jayne

Cummins realise the work of

artists in New Brighton and

further afield was too good to

hide away.

But there were very few

permanent spaces which would

display work by up-and-coming

artists for affordable prices.

“I was in various galleries

myself and it was always very

hard to get into these galleries.

You had to take some paintings

along and see whether they

were acceptable or not and there

was such a high commission

– you had to pay 40 per cent

commission,” she said.

“For somebody who didn’t

have the confidence to go

around to these galleries with

their paintings, it would have

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

been a daunting thing and

they would never have gotten

started.”

This was when Cummins’

vision for the Brighton Gallery

was born.

“This was the motivation – to

give artists an opportunity.”

The former arts student moved

from England to Christchurch

with her husband Eric and their

children Julie Cloughley and

Peter Cummins in 1974.

Their first house was in

Dallington and they lived there

until earthquake damage forced

them to move.

Cummins now lives in

Rangiora, but her love for art

from the east is as strong as it

has ever been.

She helped form the Brighton

Gallery Trust in 2002 and with

funding support the gallery

was opened at the old Harper’s

Bazaar.

It has stayed in New Brighton,

in spite of having to move sites

three times, most recently due

to earthquake damage. It is now

located in Carnaby Mall.

The Brighton Gallery only

charges artists a 20 per cent

commission.

However, Pegasus Post

reported last month the gallery

was facing closure if it could not

find more funding on top of the

$4100 given to it by the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board to

pay rent.

The Rata foundation came to

the rescue with a $6000 grant,

securing the gallery’s immediate

future.

Cummins said hundreds

of artists of all skill levels had

displayed a huge range of styles

since the gallery opened.

The diverse and subjective

nature of the art displayed in the

gallery is Cummins’ favourite

part about it and art in general.

She said this is also the gallery’s

“The fact that we keep

“When an artist brings a

to exhibit there, we don’t judge

it. It’s like that saying beauty is

that’s the way it is with art, you

either like it or you don’t.”

Cummins said it is important

to keep the Brighton Gallery

open for years to come because

very few other galleries in

Christchurch offer the same

level of opportunities to artists

of all abilities.

“Brighton has changed so

much over the years since

we’ve been there. Most of the

the first time in its 104-year

history.

President Margaret Stacey said

it was a huge thrill to earn the

honour at the Bowls Canterbury

awards night recently and she

saw it as a win for the smaller

clubs.

“We were named one of

three finalists and I think that

was good kudos for us, but to

be named winners was a real

surprise to us because it’s the

first time our club has won

anything like this,” she said.

The club has a membership of

more than 150, with 47 playing

members.

“We’re hoping that winning

this award will give us a chance

to get out in the community and

recruit more members.”

Mrs Stacey said the club also

received the gold club check

award in November, which

contributed to it being named

club of the year.

“The award is given out to

clubs who have a business plan,

they have budgets, health and

safety policies in place and they

go out and actively try to recruit

new members,” she said.

Mrs Stacey said the club offers

free membership for first year

bowlers and there is always

plenty of support for those keen

the ISA world junior surfing

championship later this year.

The pair have been named in

the 12-strong New Zealand junior

making her first appearance at the

event.

Ava burst onto the national

scene following a standout

summer, which saw her win the

under-16 girls category at the

national Billabong Grom Series.

She has competed well beyond

her years, winning a number of

national under-18 and under-20

competitions.

Meanwhile, Estella has been in

a rich vein of form, winning the

South Island open title in April.

RISINGHOLM COMMUNITY CENTRE

Cherished homestead

restored and ready to re-open

A cherished community resource in

Opawa, closed since the February 2011

earthquake, is set to re-open this week,

fully restored.

Risingholme, the historic homestead in

Cholmondeley Avenue, was badly damaged

in the earthquake, and then received

further devastating damage in a fire on

Queen’s Birthday weekend, 2016.

The restoration work, which started

in January 2018, is now complete, and

tomorrow Christchurch Mayor Lianne

Dalziel will officially reopen the homestead,

handing it back to the community, which

has been waiting eagerly to use and enjoy

it again.

Registered with the Historic Places Trust

as a Category 2 historic place and now in

its 75th year, this gracious building set in

beautiful park surroundings was purchased

and gifted to the city council in 1943 by

John McKenzie, founder of the McKenzies

retail stores, for the “health, amusement

and instruction of the public”.

That resulted in the ongoing development

of educational and leisure classes, covering

a wide diversity of topics and interests,

which over the years have drawn people of

all ages and backgrounds.

Director of Risingholme Community

Centre, the not-for-profit organisation that

runs the Adult and Community Education

classes, Wendel Karati, says people attend

classes for many reasons, perhaps following

trauma, wanting to learn a new skill, gain

employment or to enjoy the company of

like-minded people as they learn.

“Coming to a class can help restore selfconfidence

and bring new hope for people,”

she says.

During the closure of Risingholme

Homestead and Hall the Risingholme

Community Centre has continued to

operate from 99 Hawford Road, directly

behind Risingholme Park. Classes have

also been held at Riccarton High School,

Hornby High School and Girls’ High, as

well as at other community facilities around

the city.

The full programme of classes is listed on

the Risingholme website and enrolments

can be completed on the website or by

calling into the Risingholme Community

Centre office, 22 Cholmondeley Avenue,

Opawa.

The hall at Risingholme has also

been repaired and is again available for

community groups to hire.

OPEN DAY

Saturday 8th June

10am - 2pm

This Saturday, Risingholme is

holding an open day for people to

come and see the newly restored

homestead and find out about the

classes.

“There has been huge community

interest in the restoration, and this

will be an opportunity for people to

come and celebrate the reopening of

Risingholme,” Wendel says.

The open day will run from 10am-

2pm. Refreshments will be available

for purchase, including soup in a

special commemorative cup that has

been created in Risingholme’s pottery

studio.

Research supports

eye health

Are you Magnesium

deficient?

Nutritional researchers have

discovered a range of nutrients

that are essential for eye

health. Some of the most

essential nutrients that

have been shown to

protect and even improve

eye function are:

Selenium, is a trace mineral

that is low in N.Z. soils and therefore in

many of our foods. Researchers believe

selenium may help prevent cataracts,

macular degeneration (the leading cause

of impaired vision in older people) and

may also improve dry eyes and general eye

health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage

of the population are low in. Zinc has been

shown to help protect the eyes from the

damaging effects of light as well as slow

vision loss due to macular degeneration.

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Betacarotene

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper have

potent antioxidant ability and help protect

the eyes from damage

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing

nutrients that have been shown in

landmark research to not only provide

potent eye protection but may even help

reverse some of the signs of age-related

macular degeneration (AMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent

antioxidants may help protect the lens

and retina from damage and reduce the

risk of cataracts. They also may

help improve blood supply

to the eye, strengthen the

small capillaries of

the eye and may help

improve night vision,

may alleviate many eye

ailments including eye fatigue

that may be caused by reading, driving and

computers.

Eyebright may help normalise eye

pressure and reduce eye allergies.

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential

for correct eye function. It may also have a

detoxifying affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection.

It provides many nutrients, is rich in

oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that

are potent antioxidants that may protect

eyesight.

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic

amount help provide comprehensive eye

protection, may slow and possibly even

help reverse eye damage that could lead

to loss of vision. All these nutrients are

available in an economical one a day easy

to swallow capsule.

Further information is available in

store at Marshall’s Health & Natural

Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are always

happy to help!

Minerals are the building blocks of

good health. Some minerals are only

needed in trace amounts where others

like magnesium are need in much larger

amounts and on a regular basis to prevent

deficiency and maintain optimum health.

A large number of us do not obtain

sufficient magnesium from our diet

and may notice some of the common

signs of deficiency. Some of the more

common symptoms that may be caused by

insufficient magnesium are: leg and muscle

cramps, twitches, muscle pain, muscle

fatigue and weakness, tremors of hands,

blurred vision, restlessness, poor sleep,

raised and/or unstable blood pressure,

poor circulation, irregular heartbeat,

shortness of breath, swallowing problems,

dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation,

irritability, seizures, poor concentration

and many more.

Although many young people now

show signs of magnesium deficiency

symptoms generally worsen as we age

due to our digestive system being less

efficient. Taking a magnesium supplement

of sufficient strength may be a sensible

option to top up our vital magnesium

levels. Not all magnesium supplements

however are well absorbed by everyone.

Luckily GO- HEALTHY’S marine sourced

magnesium offers excellent absorption due

to its natural co-factors that include many

trace nutrients that are low in the diet but

essential for good health.

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of

dampness in

your house

Now with the colder and wetter weather

on its way, home owners are focusing on

ways to make their homes comfortable,

warm and healthy for their families

throughout winter. Rising damp is an issue

that affects many of our older properties

which suffer from poor, or no, insulation.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests

have shown that up to 40 litres of water

can rise from the ground and enter a

house every day, leading to mildew, mould,

condensation and musty smells. Moulds

can produce various allergic reactions

and the frail, elderly and very young are

especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The

team understands the problems caused

by rising damp and are there to help.

They will come to your damp home

and pump a lightweight, flowable foam

concrete under your timber floored home.

Specially adapted for our New Zealand

conditions and applications it provides a

layer of protection against rising moisture.

An unexpected benefit that the team at

Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed

recently, is that many owners of properties

which had underfloor foam concrete

installed, reported that it also provided

protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd now for your free, no obligation

quote and complimentary appraisal of

your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone

03 376 4608 or 0508FOAMCO for more

information.

What makes a great

Heat Transfer System?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected

components to optimise the system:

They use insulated duct to transfer the

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance

and number of rooms, without being noisy.

The diffusers send the heat to the floor,

not to skim the across the ceilings. All

components are good quality - designed to

operate for years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of

options: One to four rooms, with or without

thermostat and with a choice of grilles and

diffusers. HTUs improve energy efficiency

in your house, as you are using excess

heat. They have low power consumption

- only 80watts for the three room system.

Circulating air through the house also

reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version

with downjet diffusers, which throw the

warm air downwards to the floor. These

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to

regulate which room receives the most

warm air.

An average size living room requires 2-4

kw of heating, yet appliances such as log

burners generate heat in the region of 10

-20kw. This leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of

heat which sits at high level in the heated

room, usually above door level.

Heat transfer units work best where very

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate

warm air around the room with no

layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very

well: The heat pump stops operating once

the heat from the fire has heated the room,

and the heat transfer kicks in above this

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the

ceiling.

you with your Heat Transfer, as well as

any other ventilation requirements.

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.”

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 agreemen 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.

Winder was part of the Pure

South Sharp Blacks team.

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

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

s eing first hand what men and

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

since the age of 19.

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

“I’d like to think so because the

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.”

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

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

Cave Rock

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 actually 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.”

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

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.
