THE LOCAL body elections in October

are shaping up as the most fascinating for

years.

Lianne Dalziel is still a lone contender

for mayor, and no one is signalling yet they

will stand against her. But the battle for

council seats is under way.

Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board member Lee

Sampson is in the fight for the Cashmere Ward.

He faces two term councillor Tim Scandrett, and others may

also join the battle.

Sampson is running under The People’s Choice banner, a left

leaning political group which appears to be making a stronger

bid for power this election than they did three years ago.

They are fielding candidates in wards where there are leftthinking

incumbent councillors.

It’s going to be an interesting battle.

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

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

like that to help alleviate the

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.

Another blow for Linwood Village

A number of strategies

have been tried and

tested in the Linwood

Village area including

a liquor ban. But it has

been dealt yet another

blow with the closing of

SuperValue last week,

Julia Evans reports

THE SHELVES were nearly

empty and almost everything was

on special – including last year’s

Christmas paper.

Instead of beggars outside,

there was a steady stream of

people making their way in

and out of the Stanmore Rd

SuperValue to get a deal before it

closed.

Friday was the store’s last

trading day, it was shutting up for

good.

But it seemed owner Choy

Ming Lee wanted to leave quickly

and quietly, without making a

fuss.

He declined to be interviewed.

Mr Lee had previously said

drinking and begging outside

the store was putting shoppers

off – they were too intimidated to

enter.

Last year the city council

approved a permanent liquor

ban for streets around the village

bound by Fitzgerald Ave, Armagh

St, England St and Hereford St,

including Doris Lusk Reserve.

But beggars and people

drinking outside the shops are

still the main reason Steve Joseph,

who owns Hibbards Butchery on

the opposite side of Stanmore Rd

said he is also leaving.

Once his tenancy was up, the

business would be the next store

to close – he’s already purchased

another butchery to move into

and will leave Linwood when his

lease runs out mid-2020.

However, Mr Joseph said it was

not quite as bad since the alcohol

ban had come in.

“But I’ve had customers

phone in and say they would

love to shop here but they won’t

anymore,” he said.

Police drive through and don’t

stop to move people on, he said.

“Losing the supermarket is a

big blow, but it’s just the area.”

Mr Joseph was waiting to see

how losing the supermarket

would impact the area, but he

predicted it would soon be empty

of any shoppers at all.

“The street’s going to be a ghost

town,” he said.

“I can’t imagine how many

customers we are losing because

of all the drinking and smoking.”

One of his customers Lisa

Howard, who has lived in the area

for more than 20 years, said she

doesn’t go to the butchery often

any more because of the people

begging outside.

“I haven’t been down to the

butcher since people started

drinking outside . . . I love the

butcher,” she said.

The fact that the supermarket

was going would impact the

whole area, she said.

“It’s going to affect a lot of

elderly people and people who

live nearby, for a lot of people its

only a hop, skip and a jump,” Ms

Howard said.

“I don’t blame him, it’s not his

fault.”

However, she said the liquor

ban had made a different and

there were other initiatives, like

the tiny shops, a hub for smallscale

community businesses such

as bike repairs, and other work by

Te Whare Roimata, which were

helping.

“It’s hard to tell the difference

between beggars and the

homeless. If they’re genuinely

homeless, I would like to see

them get a home,” she said.

Armagh St resident Adam Calje

said SuperValue closing was a

“major loss” for the area.

“It’s angered me that the

beggars have done this. I’ve got

half a dozen neighbours I know

that won’t come down to these

shops at all,” he said.

“The whole area is dying.”

Mr Calje said the SuperValue

was convenient and cheap for

those who lived on the south

side of the Avon River, compared

away along Stanmore Rd.

“I don’t understand why they

don’t have this problem on the

other side of the river,” he said.

“I resent the fact I’m going to

have to walk further to go to the

supermarket.”

Mr Calje has witnessed major

fights, drinking, drug use and

been approached by women

offering sexual favours in broad

daylight.

When Southern View visited,

a man placed his open can of

bourbon on top of the Kiwibank

ATM before he went and urinated

up against the fence.

It was 3pm.

Mr Calje said he would drive

around the block to go into the

supermarket through the back

door so he didn’t have to walk

past the beggars.

“But the neighbourhood has

improved in some ways,” he said.

The alcohol ban had helped,

but not enough. “Before the

earthquake, it used to be quite a

vibrant shopping area,” Mr Calje

said. Now he’s made it his mission

to bring attention to the issues

and get some action.

Fighting for Linwood

•From page 5

“I’ve spoken to police, Deon

[Swiggs] and now I’ve got an

appointment with Duncan Webb,”

he said.

“If I die trying, I’m going to

help.”

Mr Calje said there was a

distinct police presence in the

area a while ago, but it had

dropped off as time went on.

Superintendent Lane Todd

said resources had been

diverted since the March 15 terror

attack.

“We are aware of concerns and

have been in touch with local

businesses to offer reassurance.

The Neighbourhood Policing

Team will be resuming duties in

Linwood Village in the coming

weeks,” he said.

“Police strongly encourage

anyone who feels threatened

or unsafe due to anti-social

behaviour to notify police

immediately, so we can respond

as appropriate. We want the

public to be safe, and feel safe.’’

Improving the area has been

on the radar of Central Ward city

councillor Deon Swiggs since he

was elected in 2016.

“It’s a local supermarket and

a huge loss of amenity for local

residents,” he said.

“But there’s a lot of potential in

the area, just a lot of deep-seated

social issues to overcome.”

Cr Swiggs lobbied hard for the

alcohol ban – but said there was

still a lot more to be done and in

spite of the supermarket leaving,

hope was not lost.

“We do need to do more. I

think the area needs a special

regeneration. The success of the

central city is dependent on the

suburbs around it,” he said.

However, Cr Swiggs said it was

more than just drinking, there

were mental health issues.

A city council spokesperson

said about 60 per cent of the area’s

commercial buildings were lost in

the earthquake.

There were concerns over

the recent loss of the supermarket.

“Anchors play an important

role in centres, and the loss of an

anchor such as a supermarket

may impact the vibrancy of a

centre.”

However, work is ongoing in

the area’s redevelopment.

“The Linwood Village Master

Plan was developed with the

community and adopted in

August 2012 to support the

recovery of the commercial

centre.”

Work to date includes landscape

Residents have

mixed feelings for

council – surveys

WATER AND the state of

roads are the two major sources

of discontent with the city’s

residents.

The point of contact survey

and the general service

satisfaction survey are two of the

measures the city council uses

to gauge its performance and to

identify areas for

improvement.

The condition of

roads and footpaths

and the quality of

the water remain a

source of discontent

for people – 27 per

cent of people were

happy with the state

of the roads and 37

per cent with water

quality.

“The findings of these surveys

are valuable because they highlight

the areas where residents

feel we need to do better,’’ chief

executive Karleen Edwards said.

“For example, it is clear from

the point of contact survey

results that residents want better

maintenance and upkeep of our

community parks, wharves and

jetties, and cemeteries. That is

something elected members

will be able to take into account

when they meet over the next

few weeks to finalise the city

council’s budget and work

programme for the next 12

months.”

Dr Edwards said the survey

findings also show residents

don’t fully understand city

council decision-making

processes or how they can get

involved.

“That is something we need to

address,” she said.

“We need to make sure we are

communicating effectively with

all sectors of our community

and that everyone feels they can

engage with us on the issues

they care about,’’ Dr Edwards

says.

The general service

satisfaction survey shows 62

SOUTHERN VIEW

per cent of those surveyed are

generally satisfied with the

council’s performance – up from

55 per cent last year.

“One of the most pleasing

findings of the point of contact

survey is that 86 per cent of

those who were asked about

their interactions with city

council staff said they

found them to be

friendly, approachable

and helpful,” Dr

Edwards said.

“We have put a lot

of focus on improving

our customer service

and ensuring that we

put the needs of our

Karleen residents first so I’m very

Edwards pleased with this result,

although there is still

room for improvement.”

In the general service

satisfaction survey, roading

remains the most commonly

cited area for improvement,

followed by water supply.

“We know the condition of

our roads and footpaths remains

an issue and we are spending

an unprecedented amount of

money to try and improve the

situation,’’ Dr Edwards said.

“Before the earthquakes we

spent about $70 million a year,

in today’s dollars, on maintaining,

renewing and upgrading

the city’s roads and footpaths. In

this current year we are spending

$86 million.”

She said it was also investing

in the water supply.

“Unfortunately we have had to

chlorinate the water while that

work is done. As a result we have

seen satisfaction with the quality

of our water drop from 79 per

cent last year to 37 per cent,” she

said.

“By the end of May about

90 per cent of Christchurch’s

be chlorine-free and we are

working to remove the chlorine

from the remaining water

supply as quickly as possible.”

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

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.

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.

Award for

pre-school

A SMALL family-owned

pre-school has scooped a top

award from the Healthy Heart

Foundation.

Abacus Montessori Pre School

based in Woolston was recognised

with a Pᾱ-Harakeke Healthy

Heart Award last week.

The award acknowledges early

childhood services that promote

healthy food choices and encourage

physical activity in centres, at

home and the wider community.

To celebrate the achievement,

Heart Foundation New Zealand

nutritional adviser Mikaela

Battaerd presented the award to

the school.

In2Hula Hoop for Fitness

owner Bernadette Smith, who

works alongside the foundation

also shared her passion for fitness

with the school by showcasing her

hula hoop skills.

The pre-school’s owner-operator

Mel Dougherty said it is the

pre-school’s purpose to provide

an environment that recognises

the importance of all children’s

health as spending the day learning

and playing requires the right

sort of fuel.

“Good nutrition is something

we are very passionate about

and devote a lot of time to in our

centre,” she said.

Basketball court opened in style

• By Matt Slaughter

SCHOOL PUPILS, community

New Brighton.

Rawhiti School pupils,

Canterbury Rams and

There was a sausage sizzle and

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.

Lock sets sights on world

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.

Meet Ruth

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

at the Te Hapua ¯ Halswell Centre Café

2-3pm Friday 14 June

Second Friday of each month

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.

CHAMP: Byron

Antal shows off

his South Island

Golden Gloves

most improved

trophy.

Fasting gets boxer

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.

St Thomas’

looking to

continue form

ST THOMAS of Canterbury

College and Burnside High

School will meet in a top of the

table schools premier first XI

football match at Christchurch

Football Centre tomorrow.

It will be a rematch of last year’s

final which saw St Thomas claim

the title 2-1.

After six rounds in this year’s

championship St Thomas have

been untouchable. They have

gone unbeaten, scoring 36 goals

and not conceding.

In their last match they hammered

Middleton Grange 8-0,

with captain Tom Stewart scoring

a hat-trick.

Meanwhile, Burnside have won

four of their five games. Their

first dropped points came in a 1-1

draw with third placed Papanui

High School at English Park last

week.

A win for either team in tomorrow

night’s match would provide

massive boost to their chances

of qualifying for the Boys Lotto

Premier Tournament secondary

school tournament in Napier later

in the year.

Kick-off between St Thomas

and Burnside is at 5.30pm.

Other fixtures – Cashmere

v Rangiora; Christ’s College v

Papanui, Middleton Grange v

CBHS, St Andrew’s v Lincoln, St

Bede’s v Riccarton.

Big year for teen baller

• By Jacob Page

CASHMERE HIGH School

basketball centre Thomas

Webley is aware how big this

year is for his future hoops

dreams.

The 17-year-old, who is in

his third and final season with

the school’s premier basketball

team, wants to lead them to a

third consecutive South Island

title later this year and a top

four ranking nationally.

He is also busy applying for

scholarships to United States

colleges for next year.

“This is a big year for me,” he

said.

“My last at Cashmere and I

know that people are looking at

me to be one of our leaders.”

Thomas played a big part

in Waitaha Red’s third-place

finish at the national under-19

tournament in Dunedin over

Queen’s Birthday weekend.

He was one of five Cashmere

players to take part in the

tournament, with Finn Barclay

and Louis Oskam joining him

at Waitaha Red, and Luca

Williams and Willem Russ-

Hofman playing for Waitaha

Black, which finished 10th.

Webley was the only player

to make the tournament

teams after several strong

performances in the paint.

Waitaha have a mix of

players from Canterbury and

North Canterbury. “To make

the tournament team was a

good bit of recognition and not

something that I’ve had a lot of

so it felt good,” Thomas said.

He said with a bulk of the

starting Cashmere team in their

final year, they were determined

to stay unbeaten in Canterbury,

a streak which stretches back to

2017, while also trying to break

into the semi-finals at nationals

later in the year,

“Last year we had a top four

goal and we fell short but we

believe we’ve learnt from that

He said the team was

committed to trying to adjust to

the more physical North Island

style, with a trip to Auckland to

play games against secondary

schools likely for July.

and support businesses in your community

Experienced hairdresser offers ‘the best cuts’

Conveniently located in Barrington Street, just along

from the mall, Elite Hair Cuts provides top-quality

hair-cutting services for the whole family.

Owner Louise Holdern, who has almost 35 years’

experience in the industry, says many people have

told her that the haircut she did for them is the best

they’ve ever had.

“I always listen carefully to what the client wants

and give them that, and most people are very happy

with the results. They also say they like the friendly,

down-to-earth atmosphere at the salon,” Louise says.

For hair colouring, Louise uses the top-ofthe-range

Luminart Professional Colour Cream;

however, clients are also welcome to bring in their

own colour product, which she will apply at a cost of

$20.

She also suggests that when a mother brings her

children in to Elite for their haircut, while she is

doing that, mum can have a chat to Melissa at the

adjacent beauty clinic, The Glow Room Beauty, about

booking in for a beauty treatment for herself.

To book an appointment for a cut or colour

at Elite Hair Cuts, phone 022 689 0528, or just

walk in for a hair cut any time. Opening hours

are Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, with late night

Thursday till 6pm.

Beauty services for the local community

The Glow Room Beauty, located in the same

premises as Elite Haircuts in Barrington Street,

offers a wide range of high-quality, affordable beauty

services.

Owner Melissa Hibbert, a talented beauty therapist

with over 13 years’ experience, enjoys meeting

people from the community, getting to know them

and making them feel comfortable and relaxed while

she provides their beauty treatments.

The products she uses include Harbour Botanicals,

a natural range made in Diamond Harbour from

locally grown flowers and herbs.

Melissa has a particular focus on the senior

members of the community, providing expert

pedicures, massage therapy, and lip and chin waxing,

with a discount for Gold Card holders.

For people unable to get to The Glow Room Beauty

for any reason, Melissa offers an outcall service, so

clients can enjoy their treatment in the comfort and

privacy of their own home.

With the ball season approaching, Melissa is also

offering student discounts, so girls will look beautiful

on the big night with a spray tan, lash and brow

tinting, manicure and pedicure they have received at

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

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.”
