New Brighton Rd’s eyesore

Council fails

to clean up

the mess

• By Matt Slaughter

PLEAS TO clean up piles of

shingle and roading metal at

a New Brighton Rd car park

appear to have fallen on deaf

ears.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board chairwoman Kim Money

said the piles in the riverside

car park, opposite

The Bower and Urban Corner

Cafe, had

been there

for “a very,

very long

time.”

In spite of

the board’s

requests

to clear it

up, the city

council has

Kim Money

not acted.

The city

council has

also not responded to questions

from Pegasus Post.

Ms Money said the piles are

affecting the appearance of the

area surrounding the car park,

which includes businesses on the

other side of the road.

“Visually it’s just an eyesore

“We just want to know who’s

CITY COUNCIL staff must be very busy

– or ignoring an eyesore in the eastern

suburbs.

The car park opposite The Bower has

been a small mountain of gravel for a

longtime (see page 1).

Community board chairwoman Kim Money has requested

information from the city council about when it will go, but

there has been no response. Pegasus Post has got the same

treatment. We asked questions two Fridays ago. We are still

waiting for an answer.

Speaking of that car park, I recall an incident years ago

involving a likeable chap called Larry, and two guys trying to

break into cars. The two guys ended up on the deck, Larry was

cheered back into the bar, and became known as Larry the Lion.

Flooding costs holiday park

Owners ask

for help to

fix problem

• By Matt Slaughter

HEAVY RAIN has forced the

South Brighton Holiday Park to

close four times in the past two

years.

Park manager Sam Hawkins

estimates closing due to

flooding has cost the park more

than $8000. It had to close over

Queen’s Birthday weekend.

He said the park needs help to

deal with the flooding.

Mr Hawkins addressed the

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board last week, where he

outlined his concerns over

the impact heavy rainfall has

had on the park, including

the downpour over Queen’s

Birthday weekend.

The board has requested

urgent advice on how flooding

can be dealt with and has asked

for site meetings to take place

between holiday park staff,

city council staff and board

members.

Mr Hawkins said the drainage

system at the holiday park has to

be improved, as it has not coped

with the heavy rain.

“If it gets too bad we have to

shut the park due to sites being

unusable,” he said.

“It affects most of our camp

because we’re quite low-lying.

There are puddles pretty much

through most of the camp, the

roadways, everything like that,

so then it affects the grass with

oversaturation and people drive

on it, which creates mud and

headache after headache.”

The flooding over Queen’s

Birthday meant the park had to

turn away guests, Mr Hawkins

said.

“It’s affecting the income

revenue, but also affecting

having staff working longer

hours and coming in on their

help reduce the flooding.

days off to help pump the water

away and then the cost of reinstating

the grass areas and any

damage to roadways.

Currently, the only tool the

holiday park has to manage

flooding is one petrol-powered

water pump, which is not been

able to deal with the problem on

its own.

Mr Hawkins said he wants the

city council to provide a larger

water pump to clear stormwater

lines, and the area’s water

storage and drainage systems

need to be improved.

Mr Hawkins hopes a meeting

to discuss these options with

city council staff will take place

before the holiday park floods

again.

“Hopefully, before the

next rainfall, there’s some

action with at least a decentsized

pump or something

like that to help alleviate the

problem.”

MOOSE’S MISADVENTURE

Meet Mr Moose, a 7 week

old White Swiss Shepherd

who our vet Kirsty saw

on Saturday for anorexia,

straining to defecate and

vomiting for the past 24

hours. Moose had Giardia

as a wee puppy and

was treated whilst at the

breeders. On examination

Moose was alert and

interactive but extremely

painful on palpation of

the abdomen, hunching

and crying when touched.

Kirsty didn’t feel he was

constipated. He was very lean and dehydrated.

Being so young, Kirsty was concerned at

his level of pain so he was admitted for

Intravenous fluids, pain medications and xrays

to determine the cause of his pain.

Plain radiographs didn’t show much initially

so we went straight into contrast studies,

administering barium orally. The xrays looked

pretty and we had a hunch he either had an

intestinal foreign body, an intussusception

or severe gastroenteritis. The pain relief we

had administered

hadn’t really settled

him at all. His blood

testing revealed

an anemia and

an inflammatory

response.

After close

consultation

with the owners,

Kirsty felt it the

right option to

anaesthetise

Moose and have

a look inside to see what was going on. She

didn’t feel he was improving and that it

wouldn’t be right to wait another 24 hours.

On surgical examination, Moose

was diagnosed with a jejunojejunal

intussusception – this is where an inflamed

section of bowel has slipped inside another

segment of bowel (prolapse), effectively

obstructing and restricting the movement of

ingesta through.

This can happen

in any part of the

gastrointestinal

tract. It is more

common in

younger animals

and often occurs

in association with

a worm burden,

recent diarrhoea,

a foreign object

in the gut, intense

gastrointestinal

contractions or

recent bowel

surgery. Moose did

have Giardia as a

young puppy and

was treated for this.

Gastrointestinal intussusceptions are

serious with severe complications if not

corrected surgically. These can be electrolyte

imbalances, severe dehydration, death

(necrosis) of bowel tissue due to constriction

of the blood supply and severe toxaemia.

Clinically these dogs present with bloody

diarrhoea, straining to pass faeces, weight loss,

occasional vomiting and loss of appetite.

Luckily for “Moose” our vet Kirsty was onto it

late on a Saturday afternoon. Waiting another

24 hours for surgery

could have been

too late for Moose.

Kirsty easily reduced

the prolapsed

bowel and

checked the entire

gastrointestinal

tract for any other

abnormalities.

The bowel looked

essentially healthy.

Kirsty biopsied a

piece of bowel

tissue just in case there is an underlying cause

as it why this occurred. We are still awaiting

these results.

Moose has recovered very well from his big

ordeal. He needed to spend a few nights at

our After Hours clinic for around the clock

monitoring, basically due to him undergoing

major surgery at only 13 weeks of age. He was

discharged on pain medication, antibiotics

and gut protectants. We are

awaiting bowel biopsy and

fecal testing results to see if a

cause can be attributed to the

intussusception. He’s back on

his food, maintaining his weight

and healing well. He’s simply

adorable and very huggable.

Well done Kirsty for another

great surgical success. Steve

and I are very proud of our staff,

always going the extra mile

for their patients, regardless if

these patients are seen over a

weekend or late at night.

MESSAGE: Aranui’s Arwen Valks wants to publish a book that could help people

with mental health struggles.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Bid to self-publish book

to help anxiety,

depression sufferers

• By Matt Slaughter

ARWEN VALKS says

no one should have to go

through depression and

anxiety alone.

The Aranui resident has

been through this herself

and knows how hard

things can get.

Now, Mrs Valks wants to

publish Rupert’s Black Dog,

a book she has written

for young people who are

facing similar struggles, or

might do in the future

A Givealittle page she

started has already raised

$1656.

Mrs Valks wants to

raise $5000 at least, which

would publish about 250

books, but said the more

she raised the more people

the book would be able to

help.

She said the story followed

a young boy who

discovers his anxiety and

depression through talking

to a black dog and learns

how to deal with it and

share what he is feeling

with others.

Mrs Valks said she felt

the message of the book

would be of value to both

young people with mental

health problems and their

parents.

“There are way too many

precious, amazing, beautiful

little people who can’t

see that about themselves

and who get stuck in this

cloud and think their only

way out is to call time out

on themselves and it’s just

heartbreaking and it’s

completely unnecessary.”

Part of her inspiration

for writing the book was

the mental health struggles

she went through after the

birth of her 19-month-old

daughter Zuri.

Mrs Valks said if her experience

with anxiety and

depression since she was

a child, which had shaped

some of the themes of the

book, could help others she

would have done her job.

“If me going through

all of this and writing this

book makes things better

for half a dozen people,

then it’s worth it. “

Mrs Valks said she had

sent Rupert’s Black Dog to

some publishers, but nothing

had come of this yet.

Her decision to fundraise

and self-publish was

because she wanted to get

the book out and start

helping people as soon as

possible.

The dog in the story was

named after her friend

Rupert Hill-Hayr, who illustrated

the book for free.

The Givealittle page

for the book closes at the

end of this month and

Mrs Valks said every

contribution would help.

Call for more directions

in Bottle Lake Forest

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Slaughter

BOTTLE LAKE Forest Park is a

haven for walkers, runners and

cyclists. But, it’s not all fun and

games.

A lack of signage at the forest is

causing people to get lost and has

resulted in police call-outs.

The city council says there

is enough signage already

and people who get lost will

eventually be found.

“While there is the occasional

lost park user, the forest’s

popularity is such

that it is only a

temporary issue

until someone

comes along,”

city council

staff told the

Tim Baker

Coastal-Burwood

Community

Board, which

has asked for more and better

signage.

The community board was

also told: “Bottle Lake Forest

Park has sign panels at every

major entranceway, as well as

sign panels placed in strategic

locations throughout the forest;

eight in total. Maps of the forest

are available freely from the

information centre and Spencer

Park, as well as being available

for download off the web.”

But Burwood Ward city

councillor Glenn Livingstone and

board member Tim Baker said

this was not good enough.

Said Cr Livingstone: “I’ve been

there when police have turned

up looking for someone and

they are there quite regularly, so

with better signage, it could help

reduce police call-out time to

Bottle Lake.”

Police search and rescue

co-ordinator Sergeant Phil

Simmonds told The Star on

average there are between five

and 10 call-outs a year for people

who get lost in Bottle Lake Forest

Park.

They include young children

separated from their families and

lost walkers.

“People are usually located

quite quickly due to the size of

the park and also the fact there is

good cellphone coverage in most

of the forest. Police encourage

people heading out into the forest

to take note of the available maps

and track names, and always go

prepared,” he said.

Mr Baker said the signage

currently in place is too vague

and there is not enough.

He has been lost in the park on

his bike before.

“I for one have got lost in there

when it’s starting to get dark and

it wasn’t a nice feeling.”

Mr Baker said more small

signs, saying things like “Bottle

Lake Car Park 1km” are

necessary.

The community board has

asked city council staff to discuss

the cost and logistics of installing

more signage with it.

YOU ARE WHERE? The lack of

signage at Bottle Lake Forest

Park has resulted in people

getting lost and police callouts.

PROPOSAL: The speed limit on Ferry Rd may be dropped to

Part of St Johns St, Maronan

St, Oak St, Heathcote St,

Portman St and Glenroy St

would also be lowered to

40km/h as part of the proposal.

Public feedback on the plan

will open on June 17 and close

on July 8 before being approved

by the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

and city council in August.

Speed limit drops around

Sumner will be consulted on at

the same time.

The Esplanade would have a

speed limit of 30km/h, while a

large part of residential Sumner

would be dropped to 40km/h.

The move follows previous

consultation on the Sumner

and Ferry Rd master plans,

which approved implementing a

12-month trial.

The area’s master plan

was approved in 2014 and

currently streetscape upgrades

for the village are in the design

phase.

It features wider footpaths

and cycle lanes, upgraded

crossings and street lighting.

A laneway linking Ferry Rd

REUNITED: Bill Lochrie and seven of the original navy crew members who travelled

to Antarctica with him in 1970-71 at a four-day reunion event at the beginning of this

month. (Left to right) – Ted Haar, John Hutching, Terry Gunn, Bill Lochrie, Pat Katipa,

Ian Jacques and Keith Ingram.

MEMORIES: Bill Lochrie (back row, far right) and his crew on the forward

hold of the HMNZS Endeavour in 1971. ​

Navy mates relive Antarctic experiences

• By Matt Slaughter

BILL LOCHRIE set sail for

Antarctica on the HMNZS

Endeavour as a navy engineer 48

years ago at the age of 22.

Some of Mr Lochrie’s best

memories of his life were made

on this journey.

He was with the Royal New

Zealand Navy for almost nine

years.

The New Brighton RSA

president was reunited with

seven of his fellow crew members

who travelled on this 1970-1971

expedition at the beginning of

this month.

The event was organised jointly

by the New Brighton RSA and

Rangiora RSA.

About 60 ex-navy staff who

travelled to Antarctica in years

including 1957-58 and 1965 also

attended to reconnect with old

friends and remember their

journeys.

Mr Lochrie said the reunion

was special and just like old

times.

“We’re all a lot older, but we

call ourselves matelots [French

for sailors] and the matelot sense

of humour never changes. We

had a great time.

“A lot of humour and words

were generated through us

having a few tots and telling old

stories and old lies.”

Leading seaman on the 1970-

71 expedition Keith Ingram,

who lives in Auckland, said the

reunion also had a special link to

Sir Edmund Hillary.

Mr Ingram said the 1957-58

navy crew delivered the Tucker

Sno-Cat tractor to Hillary’s

Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic

Expedition partner Vivian Fuchs

to make his way from Antarctica

to the South Pole.

Fuchs arrived at the South Pole

on January 20, 1958, 16 days after

Hillary.

Mr Ingram and Mr Lochrie’s

crew picked up the sno-cat from

McMurdo Sound and brought it

back to New Zealand in 1971.

It is now on display in

Canterbury Museum’s Antarctic

section, which was visited as part

of the reunion.

Other highlights of the fourday

event included a visit to the

International Antarctic Centre

and the Air Force Museum of

New Zealand and dinner at the

Rangiora RSA Club, said Mr

Lochrie.

there was a lot of work going on in

full of scrap metal for so long.

“Contractors or somebody is

Young leader off to China

AVONSIDE GIRLS’ High School

student Kathrine Wiki Arapeta

will play a key part in the New

Zealand China Youth Leadership

Summit.

It will be the year 13 student’s

second summit after she travelled

to China for the event last year.

St Andrew’s College will host

the summit, which is set to run

from July 13-23.

Kathrine will attend this

year’s event as a youth leader.

She said the best part about the

previous summit was discovering

and sharing in a new culture.

“I personally, got a whole

new outlook on the world, how

every country fits together, and a

vision for the future of bringing

countries closer together. It

definitely helped to prepare us for

our own future, how we could be

leaders of our own country, and

how we could work together with

people from other countries.”

The event will celebrate the

close relationship between sister

cities in New Zealand and China

by bringing together about 100

student leaders from the two

nations.

Senior high school student

leaders, along with first-year

tertiary students, are invited to

apply to take part.

This summit aims to empower

students to be effective, culturally

aware, socially responsible

YOUNG LEADER: Avonside Girls’ High School student Kathrine

Wiki Arapeta will take part in her second New Zealand China

Youth Leadership Summit next month.

global citizens. Founder Jan Fitz-

Gerald said delegates will learn

about the importance of China

and New Zealand’s long-term

relations, make new friends and

gain a deeper understanding of

each other’s culture and customs.

“We will provide opportunities

for all students to develop skills,

knowledge and capabilities to

be global citizens and effective

future leaders in a challenging

world,” she said.

Keynote speaker Stephen

Jacobi, of the New Zealand

China Council, will be joined

by a host of other speakers and

presenters.

Students will learn about

leadership in a cross-cultural

environment. Workshops,

lectures and forums will cover

topics on being prepared

and working together, global

relations, cultural intelligence,

social responsibility and

resilience.

Students will also produce and

present a group project.

St Andrew’s College rector

Christine Leighton was delighted

to be hosting the event.

“This is a fabulous opportunity

for young New Zealanders to

learn and grow as global citizens

and future leaders.”

Fasting gets boxer

CHAMP: Byron

Antal shows off

his South Island

Golden Gloves

most improved

trophy.

a bout – and a win

• By Jacob Page

WOOLSTON BOXER Byron

Antal’s success at the South

Island Gloves has been more

than 12 months in the making.

The 15-year-old, who stands

193cm and used to weigh 110kg,

has not been able to find an

opponent in more than a year.

To find someone to box,

Byron lost 17kg through

intermittent fasting, then

stepped into the ring at 93kg.

His hard work paid off – not

only did he beat Marlborough’s

Elevisi Kaloni to win the junior

male novice South Island

title but he was also named

most improved boxer at the

tournament.

“The whole thing was surreal,”

he said. “I was just sitting there

at prize-giving and I heard my

name called.”

Byron, who lives in New

Brighton and plays under-16

rugby for St Bede’s College, said

he was thrilled to find a bout

and it validated his effort at

training.

“I felt really good in there,

considering it had been a while,”

he said.

“I was happy with my jab

and my work rate in there.

Sometimes you get impatient

and frustrated just training, but

it’s a waiting game.”

He had the support of his

Woolston Boxing Club trainers,

who went on the weight-loss

journey with him.

“I have been having my first

meal at 12pm and then a dinner

between 5pm and 6pm and

nothing else besides water and

it’s worked.”

Byron started boxing in 2015

as a way to get fit during the

rugby off-season.

“I didn’t really think I would

like it, but I kept with it and

realised I really enjoyed it.

“At the start, I was training

hard but I wasn’t looking

to improve and I was quite

stubborn, but then I started to

take advice on board and get

better. The coaches say I need

to use my jab, my hook and my

right.”

Byron said he would like to

force his way into Canterbury

teams this year and then push

his claim for national honours.

Good performance earns teen

place in Canty indoor cricket squad

• By Tatiana Gibbs

RYAN JAMES topped off

another successful South Island

indoor cricket campaign by

sealing a spot in the Canterbury

premier men’s indoor cricket

team for the second year

running.

The 18-year-old former Shirley

Boys’ High School student was

in fine form and, over Queen’s

Birthday weekend, anchored

his team into a last-ball thriller

which saw the Hornby Titans,

take out the South Island Indoor

Cricket Championships at Riccarton’s

Howzat! Indoor Sports

Centre.

James’ team stole the grand

final, defeating Dunedin’s Metro

Muskets 86-83 in a match never

lacking fast-paced action.

James said the Hornby team

“had to dig it in’’ for the last four

games, after a loss to Central

Sharks and the Metro Muskets in

the round-robin games.

Their remaining games were

“must-win matches” to keep in

the running for the final, where

his team had redemption against

the Metro Muskets to take home

the title.

Canterbury squads were selected

at the end of the tournament

with James lowering the team’s

average age.

Coach John McCarthy will

lead his team of 11 into this year’s

national indoor cricket championship

in late July at Palmerston

North.

The team consists of Ryan

James, Craig Stevens, Micah

Campbell, (Action Hornby)

Mitch Gardner, Taylor Irie, Tom

Agnew, Ben Cochrane, (Howzat

Riccarton) Carl Hooper, Dan

Vann, Tom McDonald and

Jackson Hemingway (Action

Central).

James will head north with

the Canterbury premier men’s

team to compete against teams

from Auckland, Wellington,

Central, Northern and Southern

Districts at the national tournament.

He is hoping to finish

ahead of last year’s modest fourth

place, the team missing out on

a chance at the final by just two

points.

New Zealand indoor cricket

selectors will be on the lookout at

the upcoming national tournament

to select their squads to

compete in the 2019 transtasman

Palmerston North between September

12 and 14.

The transtasman series

will have competitive

fixtures across the under-21

James’ goal is to progress from

Making korfball

team exceeds

expectations

• By Jacob Page

AVONSIDE GIRLS’ High

Sadler

for the under-21 World Championships

Caitlin said she fell in love

with the sport when looking for

a summer sport after her netball

had finished.

“Whenever I look back at

what I’ve achieved, it’s quite

something,’’ she said.

“Sometimes I think I’ve

achieved all I can and then I

discover that I have more to

offer.”

She said to make the team was

above all her expectations.

“When I first started playing, I

did so just because it was fun and

I enjoyed it but the more I played

it, the more I understood my role

and how to play it and now I just

want to go as far as I can.”

van Bruchem is preparing to

represent New Zealand at a

world championships – but not

in rugby.

Van Bruchem, 20, will travel

to South Africa following New

Brighton’s final game of the

metro rugby season as part

of the New Zealand team to

compete at the World Korfball

Championships for the first time.

The 195cm lock grew up

around korfball – a ball sport with

similarities to netball and basketball

– due to his parents being Dutch.

His parents through playing

korfball in the Netherlands, where

more than 100,000 people take part

in the sport.

“I remember watching my

parents play, then they coached a

school team we had at Richmond

School,” said van Bruchem.

He started playing rugby as an

eight-year-old for Shirley before

going on to play first XV rugby at

Shirley Boys’ High School.

“Korfball helps with my handeye

co-ordination, which helps

with catching and distributing

the ball at lineouts, but they are

quite different sports, which is

why I enjoy them because it’s

nice being able to do something

and the next day having a

different training for a different

game,” he said.

He has played for the

New Zealand under-19

korfball team at international

competitions. However, the

world championships will be his

first time playing for the New

Zealand senior side.

Last year van Bruchem was

part of the Canterbury rugby

team which competed at the

national under-19 tournament.

Since the end of last season, van

Bruchem has put on 10kg. Now

105kg, he hopes the added size

will help him progress his game

to the next level.

“Every off-season is about

putting on weight to be able to go

to the next level. It is a bit hard

because you have to eat a lot,” he

said.

Van Bruchem is used to being

the tallest player on the rugby

field.

However, when New Zealand

come up against the Netherlands

in pool play at the korfball

champs, he will be brought back

to eye level with the world’s best.

“There’s going to be a lot of

really good players there, it’s just

going to be really cool to test

myself against the best in the

world,” he said.

The World Korfball

Championships will

take place in Durban from

August 1-10.

Chance to win

an electric car

A $40,000 electric vehicle is

one of many prizes up for grabs

at the Star Media Home and

Living Show.

Star Media events manager

Lisa Lynch said the show at

Horncastle Arena from June

28-30, 10am-5pm, promises

to deliver new and exciting

innovations, as well as prizes

galore.

“We’re thrilled to be giving

away the car being supplied by

HVS, a Springfree trampoline

and a landscape concept plan

from Creative Intentions,” she

said.

“Anyone who books a

kitchen or bathroom

renovation with Build Right

during the weekend will also

go in the draw to win a $5000

kitchen or $5000 bathroom

package.”

There will be something

for everyone at the show with

thousands of ideas under one

roof, including an Eco Zone,

outdoor innovation area and a

range of stalls which cover all

aspects of home and living.

“We’ll have eBikes, jetskis,

home renovations, insurance,

carpets, furnishings, spa

pools and everything you can

imagine,” she said.

There will also be a range

of seminars throughout the

weekend educating attendees

on everything from purchasing

electric cars to decorating your

home. The taste corner is always

popular for those wanting to

sample a range of delicious food

products.

REAL ESTATE

Sunrise to sunset

7A Ranui Crescent, Diamond Harbour

Price: $418,000

2/3 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | Open plan living/dining/kitchen | Listing Number: 9394

Sitting as centre stage to the water, this is

a quirky, retro and totally unique property.

Sitting as centre stage to the water as you can

get, the views here out to the hills and the

head of the harbour are unbeatable.

In a well-established, private garden which

adjoins the reserve, this is a property which

begs closer inspection. It’s functional in

layout, and there is certainly opportunity

here to add value and create something quite

remarkable with the interior, which oozes

potential.

Two decent sized bedrooms and a

bathroom downstairs, and on the middle

level is open-plan living/dining and kitchen

with more phenomenal views. Ascend the

spiral staircase to the upper level where

you will find more space for potentially the

master bedroom or additional living.

The house itself is tidy but requires some

structural work to continue its longevity -

this is a project best suited to someone with

construction skills or experience. There is an

engineer’s report available.

For a private viewing of this unique

property in a stunning harbour position,

please contact Emma Dunningham of

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 Jones said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

I’ve been listening to the

concerns of people living

in eastern Christchurch for

many years now.

This has motivated me to run as

an independent councillor for the

Burwood Ward – the time is right

for me to put my hand up to make

a difference.

children who all attended

Windsor School which is

now Waitakiri School.

IT’S TIME FOR

CHANGE IN THE

BURWOOD WARD

Hello, my name is Phil Mauger and I am running as

an independent candidate for the Burwood Ward

in the Council elections this October. My family has

lived and worked in Christchurch’s eastern suburbs

since 1945 and I have been working on projects

here for more than 40 years.

I now want to put my business experience and

energy into our city’s future and the future of our

children and grandchildren.

Phil leads Maugers Contracting,

a third generation family

business specialising in

building subdivisions, roads,

sewers, drains, and water

mains. For more than 70

years the Maugers have built

subdivisions, roads and homes

for people living in and around

Burwood. Phil’s dad Warner still

lives in the Burwood Ward.

Many people I speak to are

disappointed with Council decisions

affecting Burwood and feel the rebuild

is taking too long. I think in some

respects the east has been forgotten.

Rates increases must be held to

between 2.5–3.5% per annum, rather

than the current proposed increase

of almost 5%. I strongly believe this is

achievable. We can’t keep expecting

ratepayers to pay for costly budget

overruns. This is unsustainable. We

must find other innovative ways to

fund our costs.

The people in the Burwood Ward will

benefit from a councillor who knows

all about building roads, footpaths

and the basic infrastructure a vibrant

suburb needs. We also need to invest

in good public transport options for

the east.

Honey and her friend Izzy are two

of Phil’s biggest supporters.

I CARE ABOUT THE STATE OF OUR ROADS

Every day on their way to work people in the east are

bumping over damaged roads and passing patched up

or fenced off buildings and demolition sites.

I CARE ABOUT PROGRESS

We still have a lot of the earthquake rebuild ahead of us

– we are not in business-as-usual mode.

We need to stop just talking about problems and start

fixing them. We have to ensure that the remaining rebuild

is affordable for ratepayers and stop unnecessary rate

rises. Hard decisions will need to be made.

I CARE ABOUT EASTERN CHRISTCHURCH

I will bring common sense and practical knowledge to the

council table. I don’t like wasting time and money, and

will bring that attitude to the council table. It is ratepayers’

money we are talking about.

I WANT TO USE MY PRACTICAL

EXPERIENCE AND ENERGY TO

MAKE SURE BURWOOD PEOPLE ARE

REPRESENTED AT THE COUNCIL TABLE

BY SOMEONE WHO HAS A STRONG

INDEPENDENT VOICE AND DOESN’T

HAVE TO FOLLOW PARTY LINES.
