after a $20,000 grant to undertake

a feasibility study.

The grant came from then New

Zealand Lotteries Commission.

St Albans Pavilion and Pool

Group chairman

Paul Somerville

said the group

is “thrilled” to

have received the

grant.

The study will

designs and whether it will be

an asset to the community. After

the study, the group can apply

for money from major charitable

funding groups to build the pool.

The group has been trying

to fundraise the money since

January while covering rates and

administration costs.

“When you go to the major

funders you have to prepare a

case. They really want to know all

about the project and whether it’s

feasible,” Mr Somerville said.

THE REMARKABLE Jake Bailey is

about to embark on another challenge –

competing as an individual in the Coast to

Coast (see page 3).

Bailey of course is the well-publicised

former Christchurch Boys’ High School head boy who fought off

Burkitt’s non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, only to struggle to walk unassisted

after the chemotherapy damaged the nerves in his legs.

But just three years after the diagnosis, Bailey was part of

a team which competed in this year’s event. That in itself was

amazing.

Now the 21-year-old will compete in the time-honoured event

as an individual – which means running, kayaking and cycling

the 243km course in the two-day individual event.

Inspiring stuff. We could all learn a lot from Bailey.

JAKE BAILEY has been bitten

by the Kathmandu Coast to

Coast bug and will line up in the

race for a second time next year.

He will compete as an

individual in 2020 after being

part of a three-person relay this

year.

It’s a remarkable turnaround

for the former Christchurch

Boys’ High School head boy,

who fought off Burkitt’s non-

Hodgkin’s lymphoma, only to

struggle to walk unassisted after

chemotherapy damaged the

nerves in his legs.

But true to form, and his

incredible resilience, in February

– three years after his initial

diagnosis – the 21-year-old took

on the three-part 140km bike

ride to cross the finish line in

New Brighton alongside two

of his ex-school mates, James

Dunbar and Dalton Ewing.

“The feeling of

accomplishment was incredible.

I was so humbled to have been

able to be a part of an event with

so much history and meaning

to the Canterbury community

– and also fairly grateful that I

made it,” Bailey said.

Almost as quickly as he

crossed the finish line, like many

who start their Coast to Coast

journey as part of a team, Bailey

has already set his sights on the

challenge of completing the

243km course in the two-day

individual event.

“Even the day before at the

registration you start to feel

how special the event is and

how much it will mean to you to

achieve the Kathmandu Coast

to Coast, and then when you do

cross that finish line, you just

want to do it again,” he said.

“It’s a tough race, there’s no

doubt about it, but having grown

up in Christchurch and seen

family members and friends do

it for years, I just want to be able

to say I did that too, the whole

thing on my own. I went from

one side of the South Island to

the other and it was all me.”

Having recently completed the

Tour de Cure, a 1400km bike

race in Australia, Bailey says

he is comfortable with the bike

and run legs of the event, but

mastering the kayak, including

earning his grade two certificate,

will be a challenge.

“It’s probably my biggest

challenge to learn the kayak,

but I’ve got more than 200 days

to get myself sorted, so I’m

confident I’ve got enough time

to get myself organised. And

there are some fantastic people

around that I’m sure will help

me out along the way.”

Now in remission for the

third year, Bailey is also looking

forward to continuing to

demonstrate there is life after an

illness like cancer.

“I’d like to show survivors that

they can go on to better things.

That cancer doesn’t define them.

I often meet parents whose

kids are going through cancer

and they’re incredibly worried

about how their kids might

come out the other side from a

physical standpoint, and I guess

I’m walking proof that life can

be good, it can be great, and it

shouldn’t hold you back.”

Papanui writer turns mother’s war

Lynette Hedrick grew

up hearing stories of her

mother’s World War 2

romance. She said the

30 letters between the

doomed pair were crying

out to be written into a

novel. Julia Evans reports

MATTIE EDGAR and Charlie

Kincaid’s love story began with a

chance meeting on a tram while

World War 2 was raging in 1942.

Two years later, it ended on pen

and paper.

Papanui writer Lynette Hedrick

grew up listening to her mother

Mattie’s stories about her long

lost fiance, Charlie.

“It’s my mother’s long-told true

story. She would tell me about

her missing fiance she met by

chance.”

Charlie was a United States

Navy diver in WW2. He was

stationed on repair ship, the

USS Rigel, while her mother was

training to be a hairdresser.

They met in May, 1942, on a

tram in Auckland.

Mattie was in her late 20s

and had a day off her study. She

decided to spend it going to the

cinema.

When 23-year-old Charlie

stepped on the tram, he sat next

to her.

“He politely introduced himself

and asked if he could join her at

the movies,” Hedrick said.

“She just felt so drawn to him.”

She said her mother and

Charlie spent a lot of time

together for the next six months

– they went dancing, to the

movies and spent time walking

in the park.

“What I can remember is that

she had many happy outings with

him.”

But the romance was short

lived and his ship was sent back

to the Pacific, bound for New

Caledonia, when Charlie had to

say goodbye to Mattie.

The USS Rigel was in Auckland

from May, with officers working

on Hobson Wharf until

November.

“He had his instructions and he

had to say goodbye in November

1942. Then he began writing to

her.”

After he left, for the next two

years they wrote letters back and

LOVE STORY:

Lynette

Hedrick wrote

a book called

The Rigel

Affair, based

on letters

between her

mother and a

US Navy diver

during WW2.

forth. That chance meeting and

the subsequent 30 letters are the

basis of Hedrick’s new novel, The

Rigel Affair.

Hedrick and her husband

Bud have researched Charlie’s

history with help from the US

Navy archives and his shipmates

Leonard Anderson and Dave

Jessup.

“Both my husband and I

contacted the navy headquarters

in Washington DC and they gave

us a lot of information about the

USS Rigel,” she said.

But Charlie’s navy days began

with a bang.

His first mission before he

came to New Zealand on the ship

was particularly notable. The USS

Rigel sailed to Honolulu, Hawaii,

in July 1941. She was still there

on December 7, 1941, when the

Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

“It was his first encounter, they

couldn’t believe it,” Hedrick said.

“It was parked at the back

of the battleships so it wasn’t

bombed by the Japanese.”

Sustaining minor damage in

the strike – which killed more

than 2400 Americans and led

to the US formally entering the

war – the USS Rigel then sailed

around the Pacific, repairing

other battle ships.

Mr Hedrick said it was a

vital error on the part of the

Japanese.

“The Rigel was a huge ship, like

a factory and it had the highest

trained specialists and all the

critical support functions. The

fact that the Rigel came out with

minor damage was a god send for

the Americans,” he said.

After leaving Auckland and

New Caledonia, the USS Rigel

went on to take part in one of

the most savage battles of the

Pacific war – the Guadalcanal

campaign.

Fire rages, homes at risk

In August 1942, the Allied

forces, largely US marines,

landed in the Solomon Islands.

The USS Rigel didn’t reach the

islands until November.

It was the first major offensive

by the Allies against the

Japanese.

The Japanese, who had

occupied those islands, were

eventually outnumbered and

overwhelmed by the Allies.

“Where the boys were in the

Guadalcanal, it was the most

horrific, nasty island,” Hedrick

said.

Mr Hedrick said Charlie would

have been “hugely” involved in

the fighting.

“These guys were trained in

explosives, they had significant

training . . . he went on one

mission where they were put

behind enemy lines to blow up a

submarine and get out.”

After Guadalcanal in 1943, the

USS Rigel travelled to Vanuatu,

Australia and New Guinea.

But while he was in the Pacific,

he kept in constant contact with

Mattie back in New Zealand.

His letters were sporadic,

commenting on what was going

on during the war, as well as

pining for Mattie.

A lot of them were censored

due to the nature of the missions.

The USS Rigel earned four

battle stars by the end of WW2.

She was decommissioned in

1946.

However, Charlie left the USS

Rigel and ended up back in

Rhode Island, New York, at the

end of 1943.

“He sent her an engagement

ring and money for her to join

him,” Hedrick said.

“But there were too many

concerns about her trying to

cross the Pacific when there was

a war going on.”

She said she wrote the story

to give her mother and Charlie’s

tale an ending, which never came

for the pair. Although the book

may differ from what happened

in real life, being fiction based on

reality.

“In real life, my mother

believed he was lost at sea,” she

said. “She waited and waited, but

never heard from him.”

Mattie kept the letters in

a chocolate box, where they

remained until she was killed in

a car accident in the 1980s.

The Rigel Affair is Hedrick’s

second published work, she

is also an artist.“When I read

those 30 letters, they cried out

for somebody to do something,”

she said. “When I listened to

my mother, it all seemed so

powerful.”

Hedrick is working on a sequel

– so Charlie and Mattie’s story

isn’t quite finished.

Love letter from Charlie on

June 29, 1943

Darling,

Another letter to let you

know that I’m still alright. I’ve

learned to relax quite a bit even

though things are rather trying

at times. Falling bombs and shell

fire doesn’t bother me near as

much as it used to. I guess I’ve

become sort of used to it and

now about the only thing I worry

about is when you and I’ll be

able to see each other. Somebody

sure talked out of turn when we

were down south because the

Japs know where we are at and

what we are up to. About the only

good station we can pick up is

Radio Tokyo, and the other night

Tojo made a speech beamed at

us. Here’s what he said, “Welcome

USS Rigel to CENSORED

Bay. We hope you enjoy stay

while there. Anyhow it will be

a short one for we are coming

in and taking over July 1.”

Personally I’m not worrying a hell

of a lot about anything he says,

and I still think we can shoot

the pants off of the Japs anytime

they feel like mustering around.

If you can go over there go to

Brisbane and I’m sure you’ll find

everything the same as the time

before you and I said goodbye.

Love always, Kinky.

PADDINGTON playground in Northcote

is getting a $130,000 revamp.

It is expected to receive a new modular

play item, mega-swing set, see-saw,

carousel and a wobbly frog rocker by the

end of the year.

The Papanui-Innes Community Board

approved the renewal. A detailed design

of the project will start soon before

construction in spring.

The city council received mostly

positive feedback for the proposed

renewal during consultation from March

5 to April 7. Out of 24 submissions, 21

supported the plan, two did not support

the plan and one did not indicate a

preference.

City council staff also attended the

‘breakfast club’ at Northcote School on

March 20 to present the playground

renewal to about 50 children. The pupils

were asked to place a sticker on their

favourite piece of equipment, which was

the carousel.

The playground was nearing the end

of its life span and funding has been

allocated for its renewal in the city

council’s Long Term Plan.

RESIDENTS OF an upmarket

Russley Golf Club have won the

bid to have its on-street car parks

removed.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Residents of 17 homes on the

street expressed concerns over

board in April after vehicles began

both sides of the street. The car

parks were being used because of

CHANGES:

Karina Milnes,

Natalie King,

Brian Salisbury

and Deb

Bamber were

part of the

team who

helped make

the move

from plastic to

biodegradable

medicine

pottles.

Nurse’s idea to use paper

pottles picked up by CDHB

HOON HAY nurse Brian

Salisbury’s idea to move from

plastic to paper medication

pottles could see nearly 1.2

million plastic pottles saved from

landfill every year.

Mr Salisbury took the idea to

the Canterbury District Health

Board’s professional studies

course, Collabor8, where he

undertook a project called

Reducing Waste at Te Whare

Manaaki.

“I feel great that what I thought

was a little project has turned

out to be reducing the CDHB’s

carbon footprint, with the added

bonus of saving money,” he said.

Biodegradable paper

medication pottles are now

replacing plastic ones at all

CDHB hospitals.

The move will not only reduce

its carbon footprint, but they also

cost 33 per cent less – a bonus

saving of about $10,000.

RESCUE: Operational crew member Bjorn Stankowitz tests out

the new jet ski.

The 30ml pottles are suitable

for liquid or dry medicines,

which are administered to

patients. Prior to the paper pottle

being introduced, there were

three different types of plastic

pottles being ordered.

Said supplies clinical product

co-ordinator Deb Bamber:

“Reducing to just one item will

lessen our carbon footprint, with

fewer deliveries, packaging, and

storage.”

THE SUMNER Lifeboat

Institution has $35,000 in

new equipment thanks to the

generosity of two

long-standing benefactors.

The JI Urquhart Trust granted

$20,000 for a jet ski and trailer

and The Southern Trust has

funded a $15,000 Kubota tractor.

To pay homage to the JI

Urquhart Trust, which has

helped keep the institution afloat

for eight years, it has called the jet

ski Urquhart Trust

Rescue.

Said coxswain Blair Quane:

“This year, when they heard we

were looking for funding for a jet

ski, they gave us extra to cover

this purchase.”

“We are very, very grateful to

these trusts. Both have helped

•From page 1

“As a community group, we

didn’t have that sort of money

to spend on it so we thought

we would go for a grant. We

are very pleased the Lottery

Commission saw the benefit

of the project and helped us

out.”

Mr Somerville said there is

no time line for the feasibility

study yet as the group are

deciding which company to

conduct it.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

said hearing about the grant was

“the best news she has received

all month.”

“To receive this money which

will allow them to progress is

just fantastic,” Ms Jones said,

“These guys aren’t being

handed the project on a

plate. This is a communitydriven

project and there’s a lot

they have to do, so good on

them.”

In 2016, the city council sold

the land for the Edgeware Pool

to the St Albans Pavilion and

Pool Group for $1.

The city council stated at the

time it would not contribute

to the project, but later said it

would commit $1.25 million if

Sumner Lifeboat to save lives over

the years and their help with this

project will make a difference for

several years to come,” Mr Quane

said.

“Our old jet ski named

Southern Trust Rescue was

funded by The Southern

Trust 12 years ago.

It has served us well,

but reached its limits.

Our first priority was

to replace the old

motorbike for towing

the jet ski with a small

but strong, more stable

tractor that would

enhance safety even with the old

jet ski.”

Operational crew member

Bjorn Stankowitz has been

testing the tractor and jet ski,

NOR’WEST NEWS

Local

News

Now

the group could raise the rest of

the $5 million costs.

So far, more than $150,000

has been raised for the project,

which has been used to cover

other costs including resource

consent and developing design

plans.

Other money, which has

mainly gone towards the cost of

rates for the empty site, has been

fundraised through a givealittle

page as well as monthly pub

quizzes at Bailies Bar and

and helping train other crew

members.

“The jet ski a little beauty,” he

said.

“The Kubota has more power

and the driver has better control.

It is easier to turn so it is easier to

get it out of the garage and

that means we can get the

jet ski onto the water more

quickly.”

The new jet ski is

longer and stronger

than the previous machine

and Mr Stankowitz said it is

more responsive and is also

more stable in the water.

“It’s also easier for the

exhausted,” Mr Stankowitz said.

Creativity using hands and loom

HANDS-ON: Sarah Kerr is not letting cerebral palsy kerb her creativity.

SARAH KERR is a creative at

heart.

The 25-year-old has

cerebral palsy, which affects

body movement and coordination

– but her condition

doesn‘t hold her back at the

Handmade Studio Charitable

Trust.

Handmade Studio is a craft

co-operative shop where

people with disabilities can

weave, loom, stuff and sew to

create a variety of items – and

90 per cent of the money from

each sale goes back to the

person who made it.

Sarah has been working at

Handmade Studio since 2015,

and says she loves it because it

doesn’t matter that she has a

disability.

“It doesn’t matter that my

legs don’t work, because it’s all

hand stuff,” she said.

“It’s varied and interesting,

and you look at something and

go: ‘Wow, I made that’.”

Sarah works four-and-a-half

days a week and spends a lot

of her time turning wool into

fabric using a loom.

“It’s mostly hand stuff,

and any leg movements are

big movements, so I can do

that. I can’t do sewing on the

machines, and if I do handsew

it has to be rough stuff.

But I can tack – you can be the

worst sewer in the world and

still make it work.”

And Sarah says it’s more

than just work – she met her

best friend at Handmade

Studio.

Supervisor Toni Parker-

Adams said there is often up to

12 people working in the

studio each day, and the

friendships that have formed

are just as important as the

work itself.

“They feel safe here, and they

have a good group of friends.

Some of them have been

coming for 20-odd years. It’s

sort of like a coffee group on a

bigger scale,” she said.

Handmade Studio

Charitable Trust is supported

by the Rata Foundation, which

recently approved a grant of

$10,000 towards operating

costs.

Wellbeing & Beauty

Neck assessment vital after

concussion injury

What role does the neck play in

concussion injury?

Research shows that the average

concussion injury involves 95g of force to

the head. It can take as little as 4g of force

to cause an injury to the upper cervical

spine.

This means it is virtually impossible

to have a concussion injury without

also injuring the structures at the top

of the neck. The latest medical research

acknowledges that the neck plays a

significant role in post-concussion

symptoms.

The symptoms of an

uncomplicated mild concussion

will usually resolve within the first

two weeks post-injury. However,

some people will experience

symptoms for a lot longer. It is

vital to get the neck assessed as

it can be the cause of lingering

symptoms.

The neck can be mistakenly

thought of as one structure;

however, the upper cervical spine

is completely different from the rest of

the spine, both in structure and function.

This area is particularly vulnerable

during a concussion injury and has a

major influence on brain function, as the

brainstem lies within the upper cervical

spine.

Children, teenagers and females are

more susceptible to concussion injuries

due to the muscles of the neck being

smaller and weaker in these groups. This

means that the acceleration of the head is

greater during impact, increasing the risk

of damage to the brain and structures in

the neck.

If you have sustained a concussion

injury and have ongoing symptoms,

you need to get your neck checked by a

practitioner with specialised knowledge

and post-graduate training in the upper

cervical spine. This is a delicate area and

needs to be carefully examined to ensure

that injury and dysfunction are diagnosed

correctly.

The team at The Headache Clinic have

undergone extensive training in the

upper cervical spine and work exclusively

in this area. Their practitioners have

extensive knowledge and experience in

treating post-concussion syndrome. The

Headache Clinic use a targeted approach

to assess and treat the upper cervical and

ensure strength and stability in the neck is

restored to decrease the risk of re-injury.

Concussion is a complicated injury that

needs to be taken seriously. The effects

can be lifelong if they are not managed

correctly by professionals experienced in

treating concussion injuries.

The Christchurch clinic is located

on the corner of Papanui and Blighs

Roads. For more information visit

Rangi Ruru journo gets big break

MEG ROBERTS says she “would

travel anywhere” to follow her

dream of becoming a reporter.

The 17-year-old year 13 Rangi

Ruru student will head off to the

United States next month. She is

the only New Zealand student to

be accepted into the prestigious

Summer Journalism Institute

programme at Boston University.

“It still doesn’t feel real, I don’t

think it’s sunk in yet,” she said.

Foreign affairs and

international relations are

Meg’s passions and television

journalism is the area in which

she is keen to work, but she’s

excited to learn about all media.

She also plans to learn Arabic

as the Middle East is a dynamic

place for news reporting.

“There are no limitations as

far as where I would be prepared

to go – North Korea, Yemen,

anywhere. I’ve always been a

person who loves to explore

the world and the depth and

meaning behind it. I think

journalism is informative yet

creative; a perfect combination

of subjective or objective,” she

said.

“I love to see things as they

happen. I really enjoy watching

Al Jazeera and the BBC because

of the international news they

give us. There are lots of things

we don’t hear about here and I

would love to report on stories

that are important and not

always seen,” she said.

Careers adviser Kristen Fox

said the Summer Journalism

Institute programme is run

by the New England Centre

for Investigative Reporting for

students from around the world,

aged 14-18, and this year is its

10th anniversary.

Students who get accepted

work alongside an instructor

who is a working journalist.

BOSTON

BOUND:

Meg

Roberts will

attend the

prestigious

Summer

Journalism

Institute

at Boston

University in

July for two

weeks, then

return home

to New

Zealand to

complete

her year 13

at Rangi

Ruru.

Each lesson is tied to a

practical journalism skill,

with all students gaining

real-life reporting experience

on assignments, both at the

university and across Boston.

“Every day they have five

sessions where they go over the

fundamental skills needed in

a university class format. They

SCHOOLS

write for broadcast and web, and

it’s very heavy on ethics, which is

pleasing,” Ms Fox said.

After the classes, the students

move into a new session, which

is like a newsroom, where they

are divided into news teams with

each headed by a journalist who

is their editor.

The students cover city

council meetings, sports

events and police reporting.

Then all their work goes into a

portfolio.

Ms Fox said having this

real-life experience and the

work they produce is a fantastic

springboard for students.

“For Meg or any student,

having a professional portfolio

is crucial for applications from

high school. It’s great having

a passion for journalism and

when you combine that with

experience, it can create a

significant advantage for

students.

“Universities are going to

look favourably at students

who do this additional work

– having practical, tangible

examples of work is invaluable,”

she said.

Meg will attend Boston

University in July for two

weeks, then return home to

Christchurch to complete her

year 13 studies.

Cotswold pupil

to see how tech

companies work

A FUTURE in the tech industry

may be on the cards for year

6 Cotswold School pupil Juno

Rainey.

The Tech Life Project - an

initiative from Christchurch

company Global

Office – is sponsoring

five year

6 girls to travel

to Wellington to

learn more about

a career in technology

at Trade

Me and Xero’s

Juno Rainey

head offices.

Juno, who joined Code Club

Aotearoa in year 4, is keen to

explore her options when she

tours the offices next month.

“I love coding and programming

and am excited to learn

about new things on the trip,”

she said.

Juno’s father Scott Rainey said

he hopes Juno will learn that

there is a “world of opportunities

out there.”

“Women add significant value

to the tech industry,” he said.

Global Office director Chris

Tacon said he wants to see more

diversity in the industry, noting

that women are currently

greatly underrepresented.

A 2018 report from the

Ministry of Women found

only 23 per cent of Kiwis

employed in digital technology

were women.

ST BEDES

Boarding

at St Bedes College

St Bede’s is a Catholic College for boys

founded by the Society of Mary in 1911 and

it is also the only Catholic boarding school

for boys in the South Island.

Catholic, Marist and Bedean principles

and values form the basis of a holistic

education at the College. We aim not to

make the College great but to ensure every

boy has the opportunity to be great, and

we endeavour to develop young men of

Catholic hearts and minds through the

experiences the boys have in their time here

at the College.

St Bede’s is a College for all…a place where

gospel values are practised to help form

principled men; a learning environment

where everyone achieves; a place that

teachers want to come to because of the

strength of the community; a place also,

where boys can embrace spiritual, sporting,

cultural and community activities, which all

combined shape boys into men. That’s the

priority and that is in our DNA.

Boarding at St Bede’s College is a tradition

that goes back to the 1920s. Our rich

history and tradition provides an excellent

foundation to embrace the challenges of

the modern era and prepare our boys to be

Catholic leaders wherever life takes them.

Today’s boarders enjoy life away from

home at the only single-sex Catholic

boarding school in the South Island.

Like many other organisations in

Christchurch, our campus has been broken

and tested. The demolition of the Chapel

seriously challenged us. It was the single

most important building at St Bede’s

College, and had symbolised the heart and

soul of the College ever since the third

Rector, Father Gilbert, converted it from the

gymnasium in 1929.

Makeshift holy places in the last eight

years, including the present facility, are a

poor imitation and far from ideal. But we

knew it was important to have this sacred

space – a place where we gather in good

times and in bad.

The time has now come to build a new

Chapel, which will be opened in September

this year.

After the hard years, there is real excitement

and anticipation about the prospect of the

rebuild which will significantly transform

the campus. As well as the Chapel, we

recently opened a new Food Technology

and Visual Art block and have extended the

Gymnasium. The Performing Arts Centre

will also be opened later this year.

Top young runners take

on primary cross-country

HALSWELL Quarry

hosted 1353 children

from schools throughout

Canterbury in the Primary

Sports Canterbury crosscountry

last week.

All competitors qualified

for the event through their

school and then through

their zone.

The year 5 boys race was

won by St Albans School

pupil Harry Woodhouse in

7min 41sec. In second was

Ethan Cox (West Spreydon

School) in 7min 46sec.

Finn Bruwer (Tai Tapu

School) rounded out the

top three just 1sec behind

Ethan.

The year 5 girls race

went to Fendalton Open

Air School’s Tessa De Wit

in 8min 4sec. In second

was Sophie Lampe (Hinds

School) with a time of

8min 10sec. Miriam

Lemon (Sumner School)

finished third in 8min

17sec.

Amelia Henstock

(Waimairi School) won

the year 6 girls race in

7min 32sec. Second

belonged to Francheska

•From page 1

They will be joined on

the trip by their former

Burnside High School

coach Sam Ryburn – who

is also the under-23 coach.

All four were part of at

least one of the Burnside

High senior girls teams

which won back-to-back

national secondary school

titles in 2015 and 2016.

Pio and Mikaera have

been playing for the Shirley

club in recent times, while

Manderson and Fahey are

currently on volleyball

scholarships at division

one colleges in the United

States.

“Going to division

one is a major step up

– everyone’s bigger and

everyone’s faster. I was

lucky enough to get to

play all of last year and it’s

tough, but very cool,” said

Manderson.

The New Zealand team

SPORT

Sims (Marshland School)

in 7min 39sec. Sasha

McIntyre (St Andrew’s

College Preparatory

School) finished third in

7min 42sec.

In the year 6 boys

race, Harrison Staunton

(Somerfield School) was

first to cross the line

in 7min 10sec. Behind

him was Otto Church

(St Albans School) in

7min 17sec and Silas

Jones (Hillview Christian

School) in 7min 27sec.

Fenella Chittock (Opawa

School) won the year 7

girls race in 11min 40sec.

Second was Ava Rattray

(Casebrook Intermediate)

in 11min 50sec. She

narrowly pipped Charlotte

Chiles (Selwyn House

School) on the line, who

also finished in 11min

50sec.

In the year 7 boys

race, Edward Connolly

(St Andrew’s College

will be hoping to secure

a top three finish at the

Asian championship,

which would book them a

spot in the under-23 world

championships. For Fahey,

who has just transferred to

North Carolina A&T State

University, the decision to

come home in preparation

for the tournament was

easy.

“I kind of came back

to play for him [Ryburn].

I was in the States, but I

knew he was coaching so I

wanted to try and make his

team,” said Fahey.

They will face No 3 seed

Vietnam in their group, as

well as Turkmenistan.

“Their ball control of

some of the teams in Asia

is insane. They get so many,

many more reps than we

do, it’s really hard to kill

a ball against them, their

defence is insane,” said

Manderson.

Reunion for volleyballers and coach

None of the girls

played volleyball before

attending Burnside High

School.

The school has developed

a successful programme

in recent years, turning

out a number of players

who have gone on to play

for New Zealand and

been offered US college

scholarships.

When asked what the key

to the school’s success has

been Manderson, Fahey,

Pio and Mikaera all gave

the same answer – coach

Ryburn.

“He chased me around

trying to get me to join the

team for years . . . I was

playing rugby, but he was

persistent with convincing

me to play volleyball,”

Fahey said.

The team will start

their Asian championship

campaign against hosts

Vietnam on July 13.

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

a se 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 will 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

traders acro s the districts could

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

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

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

Pupils learn about role of war horses

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

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

of kits horses were required to

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

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.

EDITOR

Gaynor stanley

There are few thing sadder than drab white walls, I reckon, and

yet New Zealanders have long surrounded ourselves with them. So

when a painter started splashing some plucky pigment around Star

Media’s open plan office, I paid close attention to reactions. As a

cosy mustard yellow spread over the entire far wall, the brightening

of mood was palpable. People commented on how happy the colour

made them feel, how much warmer the atmosphere was, how the

sunny tone somehow lightened the load of constant deadlines.

It was grea to see more confidence using colour, pattern and

texture in the newly completed private homes we feature in this

magazine too. Where not so long ago we might have felt neutral

shades of brown or grey were somewhat audacious, today’s newly

built homes pop with vibrant blues ( Jay and Rebekah’s place, page

6) and copper hues (Ryan and Jen’s, page 30). Matt and Celia (page

18) champion a monochromati colour scheme inside and out,

while Sridhar and Susanna (page 63) chose dramatic black iron

contrasting with smooth golden cedar to colour their new world.

It was also eviden that more homeowners and building industry

professionals are getting behind the movement to build better

homes for the Christchurch climate. Warmer, healthier and cheaper

to run is the brie from owner seeking builders with the know-how

to construct their home from smarter building materials and designs

that keep the cold out and the dust and electricity bi ls down.

I really hope this magazine, and its associated Home & Living

Show ( June 28-30), leave you brimming with the knowledge and

inspiration to smarten up your home too.
