THINGS ARE heating up in the Papanui

Ward (see page 1).

The People’s Choice, a well-organised

and powerful political group, is taking the

fight to incumbent councillor Mike Davidson.

It has named Nathan McCluskey

as its candidate for the local body elections.

McCluskey made an unsuccessful bid for the Papanui-Innes

Community Board in 2016.

Outspoken community board member John Stringer is also

seeking the Papanui Ward and there could be others joining

the battle.

Retirement village expansion

• By Jess Gibson

AN INCREASING ageing

which will add 28 apartments to

generally have two bedrooms

and two full bathrooms.

Already four apartments of

the first stage of eight have been

A SMALL community group

is working on a plan to get the

beautification of Bishopdale

Village Mall under way.

“Enliven Bishopdale” is a group

made up of five members, with

representatives from the Bishopdale

Menzshed, Bishopdale Community

Trust, and the Bishopdale

Business Association, among

others.

The group has come up with

three ideas to liven the retail area

at a low cost – by repainting the

seats, developing the green

space at the old library site into

a village green and a new

mural.

But community activator Bill

cannot satisfy the needs of senior

Fendalton residents wishing

to stay in the area,” said Mr

Wilkinson.

The existing village was constructed

in 2004.

The complex currently consists

of one large building which

encompasses 19 two-bedroom

apartments, 14 one-bedroom

apartments and five studio

rooms.

“This Morven apartment

development is part of satisfying

care and memory care hospital

for Holly Lea so we can cater for

all needs of the immediate community.”

In addition to the $15.5 million

costs of the apartments, there are

expenses involving land where

six houses once stood, design

fees, chattels, landscape.

The development is named

Morven in reference to the

founder of Holly Lea, Alan

However, none of the $10,000

has been spent yet.

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.

e. mcmasterandheap@yahoo.co.nz

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

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.

‘Proud’ of board’s decision

over Northern Corridor plan

City councillor Mike Davidson writes about the Papanui-Innes

Community Board’s joint decision not to support the Downstream

Effects Management Plan

THE ROLE of a

community board is ‘to

represent and act as an

advocate for the interests

of its community’. And

I’m proud to say that

our Papanui-Innes

Community Board did just

that and recommended

the city council does not

endorse the Downstream

Effects Management Plan

at this stage.

However, we did vote

for work to commence

on the traffic calming

measures, which will

help mitigate the impact

of the increased traffic

from the Christchurch

Northern Corridor on our

communities and for more

work to be done to stop the

increase in the first place.

The community board

and the previous Shirley-

Papanui Community

Board have never

supported the CNC

project due to the negative

impacts on a number of

communities we represent

and the last piece of this

route is in residential

communities south of

Innes Rd where the CNC

terminates.

The DEMP was required

in the resource consent for

the CNC and is designed

to mitigate the impacts of

the Northern Corridor on

the residents of the area.

There are parts of the

DEMP that will benefit the

community, such as traffic

calming and slower speeds

in neighbourhood streets,

and there are aspects of the

DEMP that do not.

However, the best way to

reduce the impact on the

affected communities is to

reduce the number of cars

his position over the years and

hope he is successful in futureproofing

this was deemed to be

out of the scope of the

management plan. It is

essential, though, and

needs to start in the

Waimakariri district

and happen along the

route with park and ride

facilities, HOV lanes and

better public transport.

The community feedback

was strongly in favour

of this approach and the

volume of submissions and

large community turnout

at the meeting made this

clear.

The last tool the

community and the board

had as leverage to increase

the likelihood of these

changes happening was the

the DEMP and crafting

a number of alternative

recommendations for the

city council to consider, we

have opened the door for a

better outcome. I am now

hopeful the council will

seriously and be more

ambitious for our

communities.

The community board

has shown this term that

it has consistently listened

and advocated for the

communities we represent

Upgrade for Papanui centre

THE PAPANUI Service Centre

will soon become a one-stop

means we will have a convenient

one-stop shop where people

can access council customer

services, send letters and

parcels, and pay bills.’’

Some upgrades will be made

to the centre over the next few

weeks to accommodate the

extra services and improve

customers’ experience.

Future focus for McCluskey

•From page 1

Mr McCluskey stood for the

community board spot under The

People’s Choice banner in 2016

but polled fourth behind Emma

Norrish and Mr Stringer, who

were elected, and Mr Britten.

Cr Davidson said he is looking

forward to the challenges this

year’s election brings and hopes

that more candidates will result

in a higher voter turnout.

“I think it adds to better democracy,

it’s important that we

get more people running.”

He went head to head for

Papanui’s council seat against Mr

Stringer in the 2016 elections and

received 3316 votes compared to

Mr Stringer’s 2364.

Cr Davidson said he is confident

about maintaining his position

because of the work he has

done within the Papanui Ward

and throughout the city like trying

to reduce rates.

“I’ve had a chat with (Mr Mc-

Cluskey) and he’s quite a nice

chap. I’m not sure if he offers too

much more than what I offer but

that’s fine, that’s what democracy

is all about.”

“Quite frankly I don’t really

believe party politics belongs in

local government but obviously

that’s their decision.”

Mr McCluskey said his campaign

will be positive and future

focused.

“That means being positive

and future focused. I believe in

the power of local democracy to

represent the best interests of engaged

communities. That means

protecting natural resources like

water so they are sustainable for

my lifetime and future generations,”

said Mr McCluskey.

The People’s Choice did not

run anyone for the Papanui

council spot in the 2016

elections.

The People’s Choice chairman

Keir Leslie said the group was

fortunate this time round to have

strong candidates willing to put

their hand up for council.

“Mr McCluskey has got a lot of

skills. As a business owner, he’s

aware of what it takes to make

the sums add up at the end of

the month. He’s got really strong

values and would make a great

councillor,” said Mr Leslie.

Fire station design revealed

THIS IS what the new Ilam fire

station will look like when it is

completed next year.

A blessing to mark the start

of the Ilam Fire Station and

Fire Engineering Educational

Training Facility’s construction

was held on Wednesday.

The station is expected to be

completed by December 2020.

The state-of-the-art

operational facility will have

two appliance bays, operational

areas, off-street car parking,

sleeping quarters and modern

IT equipment.

It will include space and

facilities for additional visiting

fire engineers.

Two training rooms will be

able to cater for up to 100 people

– as one large space or two

smaller areas.

It will become home to 16

firefighters, who are currently

based at the Harewood station.

The new training facility will

also provide an area for students

from Canterbury University’s

fire engineering programme to

share resources and collaborate

on research and development.

NEW LOOK:

What the Ilam

Fire Station and

fire engineering

educational

training facility

will look like

when it is

completed.

Ilam was identified as an

area in need of a fire station

due to the need to provide

rapid responses. It will also

provide fire safety advice to

university students and the Ilam

community.

A Fire and Emergency New

Zealand spokeswoman said

traditionally students have been

harder to reach when it comes

to risk reduction advice and

activities.

Work on the new fire station

will begin in the next three

months.

Challenges

faced to

remove trees

• By Jess Gibson

CASEBROOK AND Merivale

residents are struggling to get

trees removed on council-owned

land.

A couple who live on Creedon

Glen, Casebrook, wanted the

12m oak trees which shadow

their property removed.

However, a city council

arborist recently met with them

to discuss the condition of the

trees, which were found to be in

good health. The residents were

advised by city council staff

that resource and landowner

consents are required to remove

the trees as they are over

10m and protected under the

District Plan.

In February, the board

received a separate letter,

requesting silver birch trees on

Carlton Mill Rd, Merivale, are

removed due to allergy issues.

The city council arborist

met with the Merivale resident

on two different occasions

to discuss the trees. At the

meetings, other nearby

vegetation was brought up as a

cause of the allergic reaction.

The resident then withdrew his

application to have the trees

removed.

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

HONOURED:

Mary Holmes

at an event

organised by

Soroptimist

International of

Christchurch

members to

celebrate her

50 years of

service to the

organisation. ​

Women’s group recognises

Mary’s 50-year contribution

• By Jess Gibson

FOR MORE than half her life,

94-year-old Casebrook resident

Mary Holmes has worked hard

to help advance the status of

women.

Now Soroptimist International

of Christchurch has recognised

her 50 years’ of service to the

global women’s organisation.

An event, organised by

members of the club last

month, celebrated her enduring

contribution.

“It was a wonderful honour

for me and quite unexpected.

Throughout the past 50 years,

I have met so many wonderful

women and travelled the

world to attend Soroptimist

conferences,” said Mrs Holmes.

“Women can make an

incredible difference in society

across a range of sectors,

including education and

training, politics, peacekeeping

initiatives, environmental

management and more.”

Mrs Holmes has had a range of

positions within the organisation

since she first became involved

in 1969. “I have held many roles

at the executive committee

level. However, perhaps my

greatest contributions were as

club secretary where I kept all

members up to date regarding

club activities and also spent

many hours fundraising for our

various projects.”

Mrs Holmes has also been

the club’s region archivist

and managed to personally

collect, compile and place

many important Soroptimist

files in the historic section of

Christchurch Library.

Aside from her work with

Soroptimist, Mrs Holmes has

a long history of service to her

community. She was one of

the first females in the city to

become a justice of the peace on

preliminary hearings at districts

courts and recently retired three

months before her 94th birthday.

She has been a staunch

supporter of the Canterbury

Cats Protection League, of which

she is a patron and a founding

member.

She was also a founding

member of the North

West Christchurch Probus

Club, an active member of the

Returned Services Association

and of Papanui clubs in the

area.

“I believe that the world would

be a better place if we all helped

each other more willingly.

We come into the world with

nothing and we take nothing

with us when we depart. The

only important thing we leave

behind is our contribution to

others.”

Mrs Holmes has been an

inspiration to her two daughters,

Triena Ong and Isla Winarto

throughout their lives.

“Mum has always been a great

role model, inspiring us to work

hard from a very early age, to

achieve meaningful, personal

goals and be proud of our

achievements. She has also made

us greatly aware that women are

capable of making a tremendous

contribution to society and

we should seize opportunities

as they come along,” said Mrs

Winarto.

Bid to self-publish

book for anxiety and

depression sufferers

• By Matt Slaughter

ARWEN VALKS says no one

should have to go through

depression and anxiety alone.

She has been through them

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.

Hard work pays off

for young Irish dancer

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

EMME Stephenson has

big dreams to one day

travel the world with an

international Irish dancing

company.

Since she was seven,

the Burnside High School

student has been in love

with the unique dance

form – and when she is not

at school, she spends the

majority of her spare time

training each week.

The hard work is beginning

to pay off, with

Emme, 13, being selected

to attend the Australian

International Oireachtas

Irish Dance Competition

on the Gold Coast next

month.

The competition is Australia’s

largest Irish dancing

event, attracting more

than 800 competitors from

all over the world and up

to 600 spectators each day.

There are three rounds

in each competition – a

hard shoe round, light shoe

round and recall round for

the top dancers of the competition.

It won’t be the first time

Emme, who trains more

than 10 hours a week, has

taken part in the competition

with her qualifying to

compete last year.

While the Burnside

High School student didn’t

make the recall round last

time, she was listed as New

Zealand’s top dancer in her

age group.

Although New Zealand’s

Irish dancing scene is

small, Emme, who attends

the Swarbrick Irish Dance

school has goals to make a

big name for herself nationally

and internationally.

“I love doing it. I just

find it really fun to do. I

like competing and the

friends that you meet. It

over my life,” she said.

Already she ranked fifth

place in the New Zealand

National Irish Dance

Championships for her

age group last year, which

qualified her for the Australian

competition.

In 2017, Emme represented

the country along

with a team of dancers at

the World Irish Dancing

Championships over in

Dublin and placed 34th.

Her next goal is to compete

in an international

competition in solo dancing.

Her mother Pip Stephenson

said Emme is

determined, hard-working

and committed to going

as far as she can in Irish

dancing.

She said dancing

has also taught her

time-management and

self-discipline which has

helped her to achieve good

results at school.

St Andrew’s drummer

to play on world stage

• By Jess Gibson

ST ANDREW’S College student

Monte Stamm has drummed up a

spot on the world stage.

The 15-year-old snare

drummer will travel to Glasgow,

Scotland, in October to compete

at the World Solo Drumming

Championships.

“I am feeling really excited

about the world championships.

This year will be my first time

going to the world championships

for solo drumming,” Monte said.

Monte was crowned Australian

young snare drummer of the year

in a competition held at The Scots

School Albury, New South Wales,

on May 25.

Because it was the first year of

the Australian young drummer

competition, Monte is the first to

hold the title.

The prize was a A$1500 travel

voucher, which Monte will put

towards his trip to Glasgow.

Monte also aims to buy a new

andante drum before his trip

which he will use to compete.

He began playing the drum

at five-years-old at The Scots

School Albury and moved to

Christchurch in 2017 to improve

his drumming skills at St

Andrew’s College, where he was

offered a scholarship.

SCHOOLS

SKILLED: St Andrew’s College

student Monte Stamm is set

to compete as a solo snare

drummer at international level.

Monte has received tutoring

from world champion pipe band

snare drummer James Laughlin

and is the leading drummer of

the college pipe band, directed by

internationally-recognised piper

Richard Hawke.

Monte went to the World Pipe

Band Championships in Scotland

with the St Andrew’s College

band last year.

“The pipe band at St Andrew’s

College is awesome. We have

great tutors and committed and

hard-working band members.

The relationships and skills we

learn in the pipe band are like no

other team,” Monte said.

Father pips son out of major

piping championship win

• By John Lewis

IT APPEARS experience still

beats enthusiasm.

Father and son Greg and

Campbell Wilson were first

and second respectively in the

South Island championship open

strathspey and reel event at the

Piping and Dancing Association

of New Zealand Otago

competition.

Campbell, 16, who attends

St Andrew’s College, said he

was “piped at the post” by his

52-year-old father by “only a

degree”.

“I reckon I’m pretty close to

beating him next time. I’m right

on the doorstep.”

Wilson said he was not

nervous about his son

becoming the best piper in the

family.

“If I’ve done my job properly,

he will beat me.”

They were among about 60

bagpipers from around New

Zealand who competed in

the competition held at John

McGlashan College, while the

Highland and National Dancing

competitions were held at the

King’s and Queen’s Performing

Arts Centre.

Piping and Dancing

Association of New Zealand

Otago president Shiobhan Smith

said more than 120 dancers

participated in the dancing

events.

WELL DONE DAD: Greg Wilson showed experience can still

She said the majority of

events were for the Otago

championships, but among

them were six South Island

championship events.

Because the Otago event

was so close to the New

Zealand Highland Dancing

Championships early next

NOR’WEST NEWS

month, many of the country’s

top dancers competed as a

“practice run”, she said.

“It’s an event that attracts

country every year.

who were, or are, New Zealand

together up to 100 student

leaders from the two

nations. The summit

offers a week-long

at St Andrew’s College,

with boarding house

accommodation provided.

Staying on campus will

ensure a fully immersive

experience, with evening

Concrete metal tree

plaques, initiated by

retired geography teacher

Denis McMurtie and

funded by Rotary and

Papanui Heritage, were

placed at strategic sites in

the reserve.

A sausage sizzle and hot

drinks kept the team fed

$10k grant

for Burnside

Bowling Club

• By Jess Gibson

THE BURNSIDE Bowling Club

has been granted $10,000 for

new sunshades.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

approved the grant, which will

be put towards the $30,757 cost

of installing four sunshades

along the bowling green at

Burnside Park.

The purpose of the shades is to

provide adequate sun protection

for players and the viewing

public.

The club has 230 members

from all over the city, ranging

in age from 10 to more than

90-years-old.

The club has three greens

which are regarded as one of

the best playing surfaces in

Australasia, and has hosted

numerous international

tournaments over the years.

The club will apply for grants

and sponsorship to pay for the

remaining costs and will cover

any shortfall using its own

money.

Community board Sam

MacDonald chairman said the

club has assets which are used by

the community. “It seemed to fit

in well that we can give back to

them.”

The club has not previously

asked for grants from the

community board.

Cricket nets set to get upgrade

• By Jess Gibson

THE CRICKET nets at Burnside

Park will be upgraded for the

first time in 15 years.

The Burnside West

Christchurch University Cricket

Club has launched a project to

refurbish the artificial nets and

replace the artificial grass at the

park.

The nets were first installed

in 2004, using funds raised by

members of the club with help

from the city

council.

They are

used often

by premier

players, club

players, junior

cricketers and

the general

public.

Shane Young

“People use

them every day

in the summer. We are always

really surprised by the amount

of use they get,” said junior

convener Shane Young

Mr Young said the nets are

“past their use by date.”

He said he hopes to see the

new nets and grass put in by

spring.

One of the club’s social teams,

the Dubai Diamond Traders, has

agreed to help remove, supply

and refit new black, plasticcoated

netting.

Brook Skates is a part of the

team and said his workplace,

SPORT

Advanced Engineering Group,

will supply the netting at a

cheaper rate to “help the club

out”.

The city council has agreed to

repair and replace the damaged

framing elements, and the club is

looking for someone to paint the

galvanised framing once the new

netting is fitted.

Mr Young said without the

help of the city council and

Dubai Diamond Traders, the

project would cost about $14,000.

The club has launched a

Givealittle page to raise money

for the artificial grass, which

would cost about $7000.

The club is also looking at

applying for funding from the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board and other

grant schemes to cover any

shortfall. It has been trying to

fund improvements to the nets

since 2016. However, members

With great bones and an enviable address,

this unique home presents a golden

opportunity for those with an eye for style to

make it their own. Others may see this sunny

north facing site as an enticement to land

bank and build on. Bursting with personality

and 1960/70s architectural features, this

property is crying out for a new owner to

show it some TLC. In original condition but

with all earthquake repairs completed and

the home fully insured, you can move in and

live in comfort while making plans to restore

the property to former glory or plan your

new development

The layout offers flexibility with the kitchen,

living and dining areas interconnected and

opening into the north-facing garden. A third

separate living area completes the communal

areas. Downstairs, two double bedrooms

provide accommodation supported by a

functional family-style bathroom. Creating

an opportunity to convert to a wonderful

master suite, a third huge bedroom is

hidden away at the top of a spiral staircase.

This upstairs space includes a landing with

built-in shelving which would lend itself

exceptionally well to creating a cosy reading

nook or study area.

Exposed beams, beautiful wood panelling

and integrated storage are all standout

Young boxers go without food

• By Gordon Findlater

FASTING DURING Ramadan

and dropping down a weight

division wasn’t getting in the

way of Mujib (Jai) Ghazizada

winning the most scientific elite

boxer award at the South Island

Golden Gloves.

Ghazizada won the 64kg elite

male title by winning his three

fights at the Golden Gloves

held at the Kaiapoi Club at the

weekend. Following his gold

medal-winning bout he was then

awarded the most scientific elite

boxer.

He joins an elite list of

boxers to have won the trophy

including one of his idols –

current WBU Welterweight

World Championship Bowyn

Morgan – who won it in 2011

and 2012.

“When I took the trophy I saw

Bowyn Morgan’s name on it, I’m

a huge Bowyn Morgan fan . . . I

look up to him, he’s an amazing

boxer,” said Ghazizada.

The 24-year-old would normally

fight in the 69kg division.

However, due to Ramadan –

which means abstaining from

food and drink between sunrise

and sunset – he dropped down a

weight division.

“Normally I weigh around

67kg,” said Ghazizada.

“It was a bit difficult to

recover, but it was just a

mind-set. I just told myself

to never give up and give 100

but still land winners

• By Jacob Page

ST BEDE’S College student

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 plays under-16 rugby for

the 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.

CHAMP: Byron

Antal shows off

his South Island

Golden Gloves

most improved

trophy.

“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.

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

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.

As local MP, I’m always looking

at ways to help our residents be

heard on what they need to get

ahead - and listening to a local

businesses is a big part of that.

Last week, I hosted National’s

leader, Simon Bridges, in Northern

Christchurch to visit Christchurch

Engine Centre for a briefing and

tour of the business. This major

industry houses state-of the-art

equipment and training classrooms,

and it was good to bring Simon

down to hear directly from business

around the support they need.

I’ve always said the Belfast to

Pegasus motorway extension

is the logical next step to the

Western Belfast Bypass and the

Northern Corridor in moving traffic

seamlessly through our region.

Readers will be aware of my

petition and ongoing fight to save

this project, promised by National

in 2017, after $5 billion was

redirected by Government from

state highway funding to invest

in Auckland public transport.

Our residents appreciated the

opportunity to speak directly to

National’s leader, Simon Bridges,

at a packed public meeting I

held to talk about the need for

this important project. We will

continue the fight.

Yesterday, National’s Health

Caucus joined me in visiting

Pegasus Health and other health

services in Christchurch for a

briefing around the work they

do in supporting our region’s

health and mental-health needs.

Keeping connected at grassroots

level with the organisations

that provide important services

ensures our policies are

continually relevant and effective.

My over 60s coffee mornings are

proving popular and I’m looking

forward to meeting you at the

Belfast Football Rugby Club, so

look out for my invite through your

letter box. I look forward to some

interesting discussions.

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 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 his Hornby Titans

take out the South Island

indoor cricket championships

at Riccarton’s Howzat! Indoor

Sports Centre.

James’ team defeated

Dunedin’s Metro Muskets 86-83

in a match never lacking in fastpaced

action.

Hornby “had to dig it in’’

for the last four games of the

competition, after a loss to

Central Sharks and Metro

Muskets in the round-robin

games.

Their remaining games were

“must-win matches” to keep

in the running for the final, in

which his team got redemption

against the Muskets to take home

the title.

The 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 the national

indoor cricket championship

later this month at Palmerston

North.

The Canterbury premier men’s

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 Canterbury 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,

when the team missed 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 at the 2019

held in Palmerston North from

September 12-14.

The transtasman series

will have competitive

fixtures across the under-21 boys

and girls, and open

grades and James’ goal is to

progress from the New Zealand

under-21 team and be selected for

the New Zealand open premier

team.

Burnside and

St Thomas in

top-of-table

football clash

BURNSIDE HIGH School

will take on St Thomas of

Canterbury College tomorrow

in a top-of-the-table schools

premier football match at the

Christchurch Football Centre.

The game will be a rematch

of last year’s final, which saw

St Thomas’ claim the title 2-1.

Burnside have won four of their

five games this season to sit

second on the table. Their first

dropped points came in a 1-1

draw with third-placed Papanui

High School at English Park last

week.

Meanwhile, after six games St

Thomas’ have been untouchable.

They are unbeaten, scoring 36

goals and conceding none. In

their last match, they hammered

Middleton Grange 8-0, with

captain Tom Stewart scoring a

hat-trick.

A win for either team

tomorrow night will provide a

massive boost to their chances

of qualifying for the boys Lotto

premier secondary school

tournament in Napier later this

year.

Kick off is at 5.30pm.

Price: $418,000

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

NOR’WEST NEWS

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,

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

council.”

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.”

Love the life

you choose

When you move into a Summerset retirement village, you’re not just

moving house – you’re joining a vibrant and welcoming community

where you’ll feel completely at home.

At Summerset we put you at the heart of everything

we do, so you can enjoy the freedom of living the life

you choose.

The perfect home is waiting for you. From villas and townhouses, to

apartments – you’ll find a place to make your own. Our homes are

accessible, high-quality, and there are no worries about maintenance or

upkeep as we do it all for you. Pets are also welcome, and you can even

go away on holiday knowing your home will be safe and secure. We’ll

also make sure you’re aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that

there won’t be any unexpected surprises.

When it comes to activities and events, there’s always something

happening to keep our Summerset community involved and

entertained, and you can choose to do as much or as little as you like.

If you need some extra care or support, our continuum of care means

we’ll be there for you as your needs change, giving you the peace of

mind to continue living life to its fullest.

Over 5,000 residents are already enjoying the Summerset life across

25 villages around New Zealand. If you’re interested in Summerset for

yourself or a family member, come and visit one of our Christchurch

villages to find out more about the Summerset life.
