No plans to improve safety at

Church Corner intersection

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NO CHANGES are in the

pipeline to reconstruct a busy

intersection in Upper Riccarton –

in spite of there being more than

100 crashes over the last 19 years.

The city council is not prioritising

improving

the crash-prone

Riccarton/Yaldhurst

Rd intersection

in spite

of recording a

high number of

car collisions.

Steffan

Thomas

Data from the

New Zealand

Transport

Agency shows from 2000 there

have been two serious crashes, 20

minor crashes and 86 non-injury

crashes.

Its transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas said

this is due to other intersections

having a greater need for

improvements.

“However, we recognise that

there have been a number of

crashes at this intersection and

are investigating potential options

for improvement,” he said.

Questions over whether safety

improvements were needed were

prompted following a crash on

Tuesday.

THE LOCAL body elections in October

are shaping up as the most fascinating for

years.

Lianne Dalziel is still a lone contender

for mayor. But the battle for council seats is

well and truly under way.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board member

Catherine Chu has her sights set on Vicki Buck’s Riccarton

Ward seat.

She has done her apprenticeship in local body politics on the

community board and now thinks it’s time to step up a notch.

Says Chu: “I’ve already said this to Vicki, she does an amazing

job. I’m doing it because I’m passionate about Riccarton and

Christchurch . . . my intentions are to represent the community,

not beat someone.”

Noble stuff, but to win an election you need to be prepared to

fight.

Cruising behaviour new term for boy racers

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

IF YOU are hooning around

the western suburbs in your

car, you now won’t be labelled

a “boy racer” by community

representatives.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board has

renamed the term “boy racing”

to “cruising behaviour” following

concerns the

words were not

appropriate.

The topic

emerged when

deputy chairwoman

Helen

Broughton

filed a motion

Helen

Broughton

calling for increased

enforcement

of police

against boy racers on Deans Ave.

It will be discussed at the

board’s meeting today.

Before the motion was brought

to the board, the term was

changed to “cruising behaviour”

due to concerns from board

chairman Mike Mora.

“If you are a girl for an example

driving a car, you are not a

boy racer are you? If you are a

25-year-old or a 38-year-old you

are not a boy racer,” he said.

His other concern was the city

council has a “no cruising bylaw”

in place, not a “boy racer” bylaw.

Said Mr Mora: “How would

you feel if you were pulled up by a

policeman . . . you said: ‘Well I am

not a boy,’ and you went to court

and you could prove you are

not a boy but it is under the boy

racer legislation.”

Daniel Cossar, who organised

the notorious Aves Invasion event

over Easter, said the term “boy

racer” is not offensive at all and

people can call them what they

like.

Canterbury metro area commander

Superintendent Lane

Todd said the term boy racer has

sometimes been an issue and police

instead call them anti-social

road users.

He said reported calls for

service in relation to this issue

at Deans Ave has been low for

several months.

The city council implemented

no cruising restrictions on Deans,

Moorhouse, Fitzgerald and Bealey

Aves in June 2010 in response to

complaints about driving behaviour.

Penalties for cruising range

from $150-$1000.

Residents have also been

advised if they are concerned

Police Station on 344 1800 or

Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if

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.

ARTISTIC: A mural could be painted on the Denton Park velodrome to mark

Hornby’s role in the 1974 Commonwealth Games. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

Mural proposed to

brighten Denton Park

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A MURAL to mark

Hornby’s historic role in

the 1974 Commonwealth

Games could be on the

cards for Denton Park.

Since late last year, the

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association has been looking

at painting a mural on

the front of the Denton

Park Velodrome.

Its chairman Marc Duff

said it is currently working

through artistic designs

with the city council for

the mural.

He said it is hoped the

mural will also deter graffiti.

A presentation on the

project was made to the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board

recently.

“I think it is twopronged.

It will give

Hornby a real feature piece

of art that people can see

from the Main South Rd.

It should cut down on the

Marc Duff

vandalism and graffiti as

well,” Mr Duff said.

The 1974 Commonwealth

Games logo is one

of the artistic designs being

considered for the mural.

Denton Park was built in

1970 for the games.

“As far as we are

concerned it is the last

Commonwealth building

standing that was used

. . . it is quite a historical

building,” Mr Duff said.

Work is planned to get

under way in the summer

if the project is approved

by the city council.

03 349 5050

Mr Duff said the association

is also planning

to feature each of Denton

Park sports club’s most

successful athletes on the

mural.

But it is not the only

project planned to brighten

Denton Park.

A memorial plaque

honouring Stanley David

Denton, who donated Denton

Park in 1952, is also in

the pipeline.

The association has also

been working on getting

the plaque to be placed in

front of the Denton Park

Velodrome.

Association member

Mark Peters presented the

idea to the board last week

and is working on getting

approval from the city

council.

He said the goal is for

the association to have a

launch at the end of the

year to unveil both the mural

and memorial plaque.

The costs for both

projects are yet to be

established.

Riccarton Ward candidates

• By Julia Evans

VICKI BUCK is one of the city’s

most well known and longest

standing politicians.

But that is not stopping

23-year-old financial adviser

and Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board member

Catherine Chu from taking on

the former mayor for the city

council’s Riccarton Ward seat.

Ms Chu has lived in the

Riccarton Ward her whole life

and will run in the October

12 local body elections under

the centre-right Independent

Citizens banner.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed

my work on the community

board and my strong involvement

with the diverse communities

in our ward. Over the past six

months I have been approached

by many local residents

encouraging me to stand for

council,” she said.

“It is clear Riccarton residents

want change. I offer a fresh

perspective and will work hard to

represent local views at council,

it’s time council listened.”

Cr Buck was first elected to the

city council in 1975 when she was

19 and became the first female

mayor in 1989.

In the 2016 election, she ran

unopposed. But she welcomes Ms

Chu’s bid.

is here now!

“That’s the nature of local

government,” she said.

Cr Buck said she was

concerned about Independent

Citizens lobbying for asset sales.

“No concern with the person,

just some concern with the policies.”

She would be focusing on the

“pile of issues” she still wants to

tackle.

“The threat we face with water

is the big one,” Cr Buck said.

She said it was “incredibly

scary” thinking about the

increasing nitrate levels in the

water.

But there was also the potential

for permanent chlorination and

loss of control over three waters

“And obviously climate change.

Ms Chu is not ignorant of the

challenge she will face campaigning

against Cr Buck.

“I’m really excited,” she said.

“I’ve already said this to Vicki,

she does an amazing job. I’m

doing it because I’m passionate

about Riccarton and Christchurch

. . . my intentions are to

represent the community, not

Ms Chu said Cr Buck was an

The crash involving two cars

caused delays to traffic after the

lane eastbound onto Yaldhurst

Rd was blocked off.

While there were no injuries,

it is the third crash to be recorded

at the intersection this

year.

The intersection is classified

as medium risk.

Latest traffic figures show

13,000 vehicles use Riccarton

Rd, 5600 Main South Rd and

12,600 Yaldhurst Rd daily.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora said he will ask

city council staff to assess the

intersection at the next board

meeting.

“What you can’t engineer is

driver behaviour, that is one of

the things we have problems

with. If people are looking and

are alert and everybody is doing

their signals right it shouldn’t be

a problem but it doesn’t mean

we shouldn’t have a look at it,”

he said.

there needs to be clearer signage

Upgrade

on track

for library

• By Jess Gibson

WORK IS on track for the

Fendalton Library and Service

Centre to reopen to the public on

July 29.

The work inside the building is

80 per cent complete.

The interior upgrades will be

finished once the installation of

the new ceiling tiles and the new

customer services counter are

done.

Both are expected to be completed

by the end of June.

On the outside of the building,

the new weather-proof rubber has

been applied on the south side of

the roof and is currently being applied

to the north side.

The new heating, ventilation,

and air conditioning technology

have arrived on site and plinths

will be installed on the roof next

week so the technology can then

be craned up to be installed.

The library has been closed

since March 4.

A mobile library vehicle has

been visiting the library car

park three times a week and the

Fendalton service desk has been

operating out of a temporary

location at Fendalton Village, 376

A LONG battle to restore one of

the city’s most historic churches

is now on the “home straight.”

For nearly eight years, volunteers

have been fundraising for

more than $2 million to restore

the St Peter’s Anglican Church.

The Upper Riccarton church,

which was consecrated in 1858,

was damaged in the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

The hard work has paid off

with $2.1 million raised by the

church. Restoration work will

start in April.

Parish reverend Nick Mountfort

said he is very excited but

still needs to find an additional

$400,000 to cover the costs.

The main work for the restoration

of the church located on

Yaldhurst Rd is strengthening

the ceilings and walls.

Rev Mountfort said steel

beams will be run under the

building to strengthen it along

with bracing in the ceiling and

walls.

“In the event of an earthquake,

nobody will be in danger in that

building. Which is reassuring because

stone buildings in Christchurch

are a bit scary,” he said.

The original architecture of

the church will be maintained

while the north and south transept

will be extended to allow for

more amenities that were not in

the old building.

The church has a number of

fundraising efforts planned with

a garage sale in September and a

ball next year.

It is also running a living stone

fundraiser where members of

the community can sponsor a

living stone from the church for

$500 or a block for $1000 and

their names will be listed on the

walls of the restoration.

Rev Mountfort said it is continuing

to apply to trusts and

charities around the world for

the final funding needed.

He said people with links to

the church and community

members have been very generous

with helping the church

raise $2.1 million so far.

The city council granted

$150,000 from its capital endowment

fund in 2017 for the cause.

It is estimated the church will

be restored by August 2020.

No plans to demolish ‘eyesore’

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE “APPALLING” state the

old Sockburn School site has

been left in is unlikely to be

cleaned up any time soon.

The Ministry of Education has

no plans to demolish the buildings

located at 34 Springs Rd in

spite of calls

from the community.

The old

school site has

been left vacant

after Wigram

Primary

Natalie Bryden

School moved

to its new site

EYESORE: The Ministry of Education has no plans to demolish the old Sockburn School site in

Hornby.

at The Runway in Wigram Skies

at the end of last year.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board member Natalie

Bryden said the building is

getting “totally vandalised” and

all the windows are boarded up.

“I don’t see why we should

have a bloody eyesore in our

community,” she said.

Her views were backed by

Hornby resident Mark Peters,

who is supportive of the building

being demolished.

“We have noticed a bit of tagging

has begun to emerge. It has

offered itself a bit of a potential

problem in the community and

they need to start doing something

quickly,” he said.

MoE head of education infrastructure

Kim Shannon said it

is continuing to manage the site

but no decisions had been made

about its long-term future.

But Ms Bryden said is concerned

there are no plans to

demolish the buildings because

it is only going to attract undesirables.

The board will contact the

MoE over the issue.

Ms Bryden said when South

Hornby School relocated to its

new site in 2017, the buildings

were demolished soon after by

the MoE.

“They did it to South Hornby

School really quickly so why

can’t they do it to this one?” she

said.

The old school site is managed

by Land Information New

Zealand.

“We only acquire and retain

land needed for the delivery of

education. If a site is no longer

required for education purposes

it will be declared surplus and

processed for disposal, “ Ms

Shannon said.

She said this provides other

agencies the opportunity to signal

their interest in properties

before they are sold.

‘Heroes’

thanked on

Westfield wall

HUNDREDS OF messages

thanking firefighters, police,

paramedics, nurses, teachers

and members of the armed

forces, were shared by the public

at Westfield Riccarton recently.

In a colourful array of postit

notes, visitors to the

shopping precinct added kind

words of thanks to a special

“Kiwi Hero” wall, created by

2degrees.

The wall was for everyday

heroes who have made a

difference to their lives and

the lives of their family or

friends.

From shout-outs to the

dedicated medics who save

lives each day, to the teachers

nurturing the development of

children across the region, the

messages - shared by members

of the public in city – captured

the impact these unsung heroes,

who make it their mission to put

others first, have made.

A keen willingness to share

their gratitude and other kind

sentiments, saw hundreds of

messages from Cantabrians,

including Mayor Lianne Dalziel,

cover the large wall within a

Fire rages, homes at risk

Douglas Bath – I am

pleased to see speed limit

reductions. One of my concerns

is the road between Hornby mall

and the Caltex/Dress-Smart

side in particular with regard to

pedestrians crossing this main

road. My thought to help would

be a road traffic speed limit of

30km/h from say opposite Mitre

10 MEGA Hornby to south of

McDonald’s.

Anne Cook – I am totally in

agreement of the proposed road

reduction speeds in all the roads

in the article. We are currently

caretakers of a property in

Hodgens Rd. When trying to

access it from Springs Rd, traffic

often toots and becomes annoyed

because we are slowing down.

Access from Hodgens turning

right onto Springs is a further

nightmare, everyone speeds

up leaving Prebbleton and it’s

nearly always an issue. Hodgens

Rd at the weekends turns into

a race track with cars speeding

along Hodgens into Fountains

and along Marshs. Access

to and from the fruit shop

on the corner of Marshs and

Springs Rds is dangerous. Speed

decreases in the area would

certainly be welcomed. My small

grandchildren will be living in

Hodgens Rd and it would make

me very happy to see cars going

slower. I am sure dog walking

and horse riding would also be

a lot safer with reduced speed

limits. I do hope this happens

and thank you for allowing me

to have my say.

Joy Sixtus responds to

the Western News article

about buses running

behind schedule on

Halswell and Lincoln Rds

due to busy traffic

Instead of causing further

congestion and obstruction to

Halswell Rd with cars and buses,

questions should instead be

asked in relation to the extended

time it is taking with the

cycleway and new intersection

on Sparks (and Hendersons

intersection) Rd. This has

been going on for more than

18 months with intermittent

road closures taking away any

certainty for traffic coming

from south of Halswell (Tai

Tapu, Little River, Akaroa, etc),

as people tend to all converge

on Lincoln Rd in case they

encounter difficulties on Sparks

Rd. The other issue outstanding

on Lincoln Rd is the continued

deferment of extending and

creating the two lanes between

the Lyttelton St and Hoon Hay

Steve Hawkins – This issue

is of concern to many other areas

of Hornby. However, Roberts

Rd is one of the major dumping

areas. I agree public vigilance

and education will go a long

solution is to close this road

completely as it is mostly used as

Mixed feelings

for council

– survey

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.

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.

The general service

satisfaction survey shows 62

per cent of those surveyed are

generally satisfied with the

council’s performance – up from

55 per cent last year.

Grease

ONE OF the most popular

stage this month.

Riccarton High School will

present the classic Grease.

The well-known 1971 musical

follows 10 working-class

teenagers as they navigate the

complexities of peer pressure,

politics, personal core values,

and love.

The school’s head of drama

Charles Grubb said it is a fun

musical and has a nice story

showing although people are

from different parts of society,

it doesn’t mean they can’t get

along.

The lead role of Danny will

be played by Yea Rin Park while

Sandy will be played by Carmen

Holdaway.

About 80 students are involved

in the show including the

student band and operating the

technical equipment.

Mr Grubb said the show was

chosen because it was popular

staff and a good show about

finding your identity.

The musical will be held June

26, 27, 28 at 7pm and 2pm and

7pm, June 29, at the Riccarton

High School hall.

were challenged to pack rubbishfree

lunchboxes last week in an

initiative aimed at benefiting

both pupils and the environment.

Rubbish-free lunch week was

organised by the school’s community

problem-solving group

the “Eco-Warriors”.

All week they recorded numbers

of people with lunchboxes

free of plastic waste.

If more pupils had rubbish-free

lunches than when the initiative

ran late last year, the school will

hold a mufti-day.

Isis McKenzie, 10, is one of the

Eco-Warriors.

She said the group wants to

encourage and educate students

to cut down on the amount of

plastic they bring to school.

The ultimate aim is for Oaklands

School to become completely

rubbish-free.

“We hope students will see how

easy it is to bring less plastic in

their lunchboxes and it might get

them thinking about the other

plastic they throw away. Rubbish

and plastic makes a big impact

on the oceans and its sea life. It’s

killing sea life and making some

species endangered or extinct.”

Oaklands School deputy

principal and Eco-Warrior

leader Caroline Martin said the

rubbish-free lunchbox initiative

was one of a number the group

had done or were planning to

improve the environment of their

SCHOOLS

school and the wider Halswell

community.

Last year the Eco-Warriors

were involved in a clean-up day

at Westlake Park in Halswell.

They were making a video

about how plastic damages the

environment and how to minimise

waste.

They created an environmentally-friendly

school mascot

called “Nutty the Eco-Warrior”

and resources about sustainability.

A number of new buildings

Ms Martin said the Eco-

thinking about ways to make

$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

WORN OUT: The cricket nets and artificial grass at Burnside

Park are set to be replaced.

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

have struggled to fund the

project on top of the general

running costs of the cricket club.

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

Wairakei Road Local

has NEW OWNERS

• By Gordon Findlater

THE CHRISTCHURCH City BMX

Club has been recognised for overcoming

adverse weather conditions to win the

event of the year at the recent Cycling

New Zealand Awards.

Club president Quentin Trenberth was

on hand at the awards dinner in

Cambridge to collect the honour.

In January 2018, the club hosted the

South Island Titles at its track in Kyle

Park. It also doubled as a round of the

national series with elite riders, including

Olympic silver medallist Sarah Walker.

However, a shadow of doubt was cast over

the event with two days of torrential rain

prior to the weekend of racing.

“The Wednesday night, when it started

bucketing down, it was chaos. We put out

requests for plastic covers because we’d

seen other places cover their track,” said

track manager Michael Stronach.

The club put out a call for help through

its Facebook page and were soon offered

help from Safety Nets NZ.

“He offered us rolls and rolls of (plastic).

out award after

fighting weather

There was about 10 of us down there at

10 o’clock at night in the pouring rain

covering the track with this plastic,” said

Stronach.

On the Thursday and Friday before the

event, the club brought in a water pump

and had volunteers constantly sweeping

water off the track and covers during

persistent rain in the hope of being able to

run the event over the weekend.

With rain easing late on Friday, the club

made one final push to dry the track.

“I’ve been to a lot of speedway and they

often dry the track with helicopters . . . we

put a Facebook post out and unbelievably

one of our members has a father who has a

helicopter. He offered to fly the helicopter

over the track for 45min,” said Stronach.

“It was quite amazing actually watching

a helicopter come into a suburban area for

something like that.”

After the use of the helicopter, racing

was delayed until the afternoon. From

there, the event was a success with near

30 deg C weather and a larger crowd than

anticipated due to extra media coverage of

the event.

BIG EFFORT: Just

one day before

racing began, the

BMX track at Kyle

Park looked more

like a swamp.

improvements to the business. In

particular the food.

WESTERN 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.

The Ruapuna Community Liaison Committee is seeking applications

from interested community members to join the committee. We meet

four times each year, for the purpose of keeping communications

going between Ruapuna Park and representatives from residents in

the surrounding area.

At each meeting the Speedway and Ruapuna Circuit reports to

the committee, showing what activity has taken place over the

previous three months, what noise category they were in and advise

any complaints received. It’s an opportunity for the community

representatives to ask questions about the events that have taken

place and give their own feedback.

The committee also work with the management of Ruapuna Park

to come up with initiatives that have benefits for both the park and

local residents.

There are three positions available on the Ruapuna Community

Liaison Committee. We are seeking applications from any resident

who lives in the general area surrounding Ruapuna Park. Preference

would be given to those applicants who represent a community

group or are able to show that they can pass information from the

committee back to residents in the community.

If more than three applicants are received, it is the Independent

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

asse sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement 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.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

Only eight submi sions were

aimed at regulating commercial

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

A report said there are two

Pupils learn about role of war horses

Mark A pleton and member

their horses Tommy and Kruze

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.
