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 HIKING BOOTS & SHOES For men, women and children From $79.95 to $250 47c Garlands Road, Woolston Phone 389 3431 www.thefootwearfactory.co.nz DUMPING GROUND: This car park on New Brighton Rd, opposite The Bower, has been covered with piles of shingle and roading metal for “a very, very long time”. and our community deserves better,” she said. “We just want to know who’s doing it and we would like it stopped and we would like it to be tidied up because it’s making the area look extremely scruffy and the retail area’s got enough to deal with without having this look like that,” she said. The Bower and Urban Corner Cafe manager Vicki Blake said its patrons used to park in the Cockayne car park, where the piles are, but they had not been able to since the scrap metal was dumped there.

The car park opposite The Bower has been a small mountain of gravel for a longtime (see page 1).

We asked questions two Fridays ago. We are still waiting for an answer.

PEGASUS POST Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday June 11 2019 3 News Local News Now Fire rages, homes at risk 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 SODDEN: Flooding at the South Brighton Holiday Park has caused it to close four times in the last two years,. Its owners Sam and Jacquie Hawkins (inset) say more needs to be done to 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.” In Brief BURWOOD PARK Work to upgrade Donnell Sports Park in Burwood was due to get under way yesterday. The work will include new paths, repairs to the basketball and tennis courts, and the installation of a new toilet. The work is due to be completed by the end of August.

4 Tuesday June 11 2019 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi News PEGASUS POST McMaster & Heap Veterinary practice 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. Dr Michele McMaster 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.

PEGASUS POST Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday June 11 2019 5 News 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 30km/h. Lower speed limit on cards for Woolston • By Julia Evans THE SPEED limit in the Woolston Village precinct may be dropped. Consultation is set to begin on lowering the speed limit along Ferry Rd from Portman St to nearly Palinurus Rd to 30km/h. 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 to the public car park and preschool behind the library will be upgraded for use by pedestrians and cyclists under the library development. New and upgraded bus stops and shelters will also be introduced. $53,000 WORTH OF PRIZES TO BE WON!

(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.

But its owner Katrina Hargen said she understood the roading metal had to go somewhere given there was a lot of work going on in the area. “I know they’ve got shingle and that there, which doesn’t bother me. It’s a work site and they need to pick stuff up and move it . . . anything that helps actually the road or things get fixed quicker because it’s more accessible for them, I always think is a good thing.” Ms Money was unsure whether dumping in the car park was illegal, but said the city council should have told the community board why the car park has been full of scrap metal for so long. “Contractors or somebody is dumping stuff there, whether it’s illegally or whether they’ve got permission, I don’t know, but the board would just like to know who is dumping and why are they dumping it and if it is legal how long are they going to be dumping for . . . if it’s not legal then let’s stop it.” • By Matt Slaughter SCHOOL PUPILS, community members and sports stars gathered on Wednesday to celebrate the completion of upgrades to Thomson Park in New Brighton. Rawhiti School pupils, Canterbury Rams and Canterbury Wildcats basketball players were among more than 100 people who attended the event. The pupils took part in basketball games and drills run by the players on the new International Basketball Federation standard court at the park. There was a sausage sizzle and Coastal-Burwood Community Board chairwoman Kim Money spoke. Along with the construction of the basketball court, the park upgrades have involved putting in a brand new car park, toilet facility, bike stands, picnic area, pathways and greenery. Ms Money said the project had taken about 12 weeks to complete and it had been great to see people finally enjoying the park again at the event. “It was so exciting just to see those kids, the expressions on their faces. “They were just going for it while I was doing my speech and I thought, yes, that’s the way it should be.” She said the upgrades had been worth the wait.

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.

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.

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.

14 Tuesday June 11 2019 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi 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 SUCCESS: The Canterbury premier men’s indoor cricket championshipwinning team (Back row) – Curtis Millard, Charlie Fisher, Kyle Burns, Josh Dyer, Paul Partridge and Donovan Hutton. (Front row) – Harry Bisphan, Ryan James, Micah Campbell and Craig Stevens. compete in the 2019 transtasman series, which will be held in Palmerston North between September 12 and 14. The transtasman series will have competitive fixtures across the under-21 boys and girls, and open premier men’s and women’s grades and James’ goal is to progress from the New Zealand under-21 boy’s team and be selected for the New Zealand open premier men’s team. Making korfball team exceeds expectations • By Jacob Page AVONSIDE GIRLS’ High School korfballer Caitlin Sadler is keen to grow the sport she loves across New Zealand. The 17-year-old was selected to the all stars tournament team after representing New Zealand at the under-21 Oceania tournament in China late last month where the team finished fourth. The result qualified them PEGASUS POST Caitlin Sadler for the under-21 World Championships in Taiwan next July. 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.” A great lifestyle in a supportive community • Stunning serviced apartments • Restaurant & bar • Landscaped courtyards • Close to The Palms Open Monday to Friday 10am – 4pm or by appointment including weekends.

PEGASUS POST Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday June 11 2019 15 SPORT MULTI-SKILLED: New Brighton lock Boris van Bruchem will represent New Zealand at the World Korfball Championships in August. PRIZE: HVS sales and finance manager Richard Gardyne with the electric vehicle which will be given away at the Star Media Home and Living Show at the end of the month. Lock sets sights on world champs of a different kind • By Gordon Findlater NEW BRIGHTON lock Boris 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.

PEGASUS POST Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday June 11 2019 21 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 Min Sarginson Real Estate (Licensed Agent REAA 2008), phone 027 631 1570 or 328 7273

PEGASUS POST Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday June 11 2019 25 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. Phil with this three 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.
26 Tuesday June 11 2019 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi PEGASUS POST Phil, with his daughter, sons and dad Warner, at the subdivision Warner established at Waimari Beach. Phil and his dog Honey out delivering letters in the Burwood Ward. I WANT TO REIGN IN SPENDING AND STOP BUDGET BLOW OUTS 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.
PEGASUS POST Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday June 11 2019 27 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.
28 Tuesday June 11 2019 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi PEGASUS POST 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.
