Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern joined students and staff at Shirley Boys’ High and Avonside Girls’ High School on Thursday to

celebrate the official opening of the new site on Travis Rd. Although classes started in May, it was an opportunity to recognise

the work that went into setting up the new shared campus, which replaced both schools’ quake-damaged sites.

Bid to put

brakes on

Avondale

boy racers

• By Matt Slaughter

AVONDALE residents want

speed bumps on their streets to

stop boy racers causing carnage.

But city council staff don’t

believe there is a boy racer issue,

even though Burwood Ward city

councillor Glenn Livingstone

says there is.

Cr Livingstone recently

visited Waratah St, Briarmont

St and Orrick

Cres to speak

to concerned

residents. When

he was on

Briarmont St

discussing the

need for speed

bumps with a

resident, he saw

what appeared to

be boy racers speeding past.

Glenn

Livingstone

Said Cr Livingstone: “I’ve seen

the skid marks, too – obviously

from the rubber.”

City council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas said it has not received

any complaints about boy

racers in the streets over the

last year and there are no plans

to implement measures to stop

them.

from the editor’s desk

WHEN THERE are tyre burnout marks

on a street, it is generally a good indicator

of boy racer activity.

But Avondale residents are having

trouble trying to convince city council

staff there is a problem (see page 1).

They have a simple solution: Put speed bumps in to slow the

boy racers down which will hopefully see them go elsewhere.

But the solution is getting little traction from the powers that

be. And that is understandably irritating the good people who

live on affected streets and pay their rates. City council staff say

they haven’t received any complaints about boy racers and have

no plans to put speed bumps in. Burwood Ward city councillor

Glenn Livingstone has now joined the battle.

We will keep you posted.

Godwit sculpture finally takes off

• By Matt Slaughter

AN $89,100 sculpture of the

bar-tailed godwits is finally set

to be installed at South New

Brighton.

Because the birds spend

summer in Southshore, the

artwork will

be on show

near the South

New Brighton

bridge. The

project was first

raised by the

South Brighton

Residents’

Association

about three

Bon Suter

years ago.

The sculpture, called The

Godwits, will feature seven

painted, stainless steel birds on

top of tall poles, which will allow

them to rotate in the wind.

The design was approved

by the city council’s social,

community development

and housing committee last

week. The project still needs

final approval from the city

council.

A city council spokesperson

said “the Godwits artwork will

be installed following the report

to the city council on July 25.”

The artwork has been offered

as a gift to Christchurch by the

FLYING HIGH: An artist’s impression of the godwit sculpture

to be installed in South New Brighton.

residents’ association, which

commissioned local artist Bon

Suter to design it.

Said residents’ association

secretary Seamus O’Cromtha:

“It’s been a long, long, long

process. We’re very pleased,

obviously. It’s good for general

community well-being.”

It was proposed as a way to

identify South New Brighton as

an area of natural beauty and a

place where the godwits arrive

and leave from each year.

The committee supported

a recommendation in favour

of the sculpture’s permanent

installation and ongoing

maintenance.

Ms Suter is a professional

sculptor and tutor who created

the South New Brighton

Sculpture Park. She has

represented the city council at

the Festival of Arts in Adelaide

and her work is held in public

and private collections around

the world.

While the sculpture will cost

$89,100, $76,000 was raised

by the residents’ association

through community events

and donations. The remaining

amount came from the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board’s

discretionary fund, with Fulton

Hogan and the city council

covering the installation costs.

The godwits (kuaka)

usually arrive in mid-

September after flying

thousands of kilometres from

their breeding grounds in

Alaska. The wading birds spend

the summer in Southshore

before leaving in March.

Veterinary practice

“The Needle”

Last week the decision was

made to open up my beautiful

girl Lola to retrieve a “bent

needle” somewhere in her

abdomen. I debated over this

for 24 hours as I don’t like

her having anaesthetics and

I hate cutting her open. She

was telling me she wasn’t

right though, lagging behind

on walks and eventually not

wanting to leave the house,

tucked up sore in her abdomen,

head hung low and those sad

eyes staring at me. She may not

speak English but she sure talks

to me.

She is loved and adored by

everyone at the clinic so my

nurses took blood from her

and run them in house. Everything tested

was within normal limits. Richard Lucy then

ultrasounded her abdomen and again

nothing of concern was seen - thankfully.

We radiographed her spine which appeared

normal. What we did find was what looked

to be a needle

sitting ventrally

in her abdomen. I

was aware of the

needle after her

first surgery to

remove her kidney

due to cancer. The

specialist surgeon

mistakenly had

left it behind. I had

been monitoring

its position with

regular X-rays

and it hadn’t

moved in years.

Last week when

we radiographed her the needle

had moved and appeared bent,

necessitating removal.

My colleague surgically operated

on Lola as I find it difficult to cut my

girl open. The rusty looking needle was

removed and it had passed through a lobe

of liver causing adhesions to the peritoneal

wall lining. This would have caused her pain.

These were freed up and she was closed and

recovered so quickly with the aid of our “Bear

Hugger’ which blows warm air around Lola

on recovery.

She’s getting lots of TLC at

home and work and with my

clients. She’s adored by so

many and everyone wants

her to recover speedily. She’s

fought kidney cancer and

chemo, split pad disease and

intervertebral disc disease.

She’s hard to keep down

and out for too long. So far

so good ( Lucky her parents

are vets!!)- she’s more

comfortable and

moving better and

that needle had

to go!!

Signage at Bottle Lake

Oram Ave work may have to wait

• By Matt Slaughter

WORK ON the highly

anticipated extension of Oram

Ave from New Brighton mall to

Hawke St may not start as early

as hoped.

And Coastal-Burwood

Community Board members are

disappointed, saying not starting

the extension as soon as possible

has the potential to damage

investment in the area.

The project is being overseen

by Development Christchurch

Ltd, which said in March it

supported making funding for

the project available sooner.

The board also asked in its

submission to the city council’s

Annual Plan if funding for the

extension can be made available

so work can start sooner than

July 2026 as originally planned.

Board chairwoman Kim

Money said it wants the city

council to make $100,000

available between this year and

next year and another $300,000

available between 2020-2021 so

work can start.

However, the city council did

not approve the board’s request

at its Annual Plan meeting

and instead asked for more

information about bringing the

funding forward.

Said city council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis: “The funding

needs for any early delivery of a

portion of this work requires an

initial project scope to identify

an appropriate budget amount.

Funding needs are not currently

adequately defined.”

She said the information

the city council had asked for

would be provided “as soon as

practicable.”

But Coastal Ward city

councillor David East said it

could take “a few months” for the

information to be provided and

this would delay work starting,

which could also damage New

Brighton’s growth.

“All delays are not exactly

conducive to getting the right

mix of investor confidence and

projects going forward,” he said.

Ms Money was disappointed

with the city council’s reaction

DELAY:

The city

council has

delayed its

decision

on

whether

to make

$400,000

available

sooner to

start work

on the

Oram Ave

extension.

to what she believed was a

reasonable request.

“Councillors need to

understand that we’re trying to

do a regeneration here and the

board and DCL are asking for

the same thing and time is of

the essence,” she said. “To bring

forward that most minor amount

would have been helpful.”

Both Ms Money and Cr East

say they are frustrated because

making the $400,000 available

between now and 2021 would

only have a small impact on

ratepayers.

Said Cr East: “The bigger

chunks came in about year three,

and at that stage, it would have a

0.1 per cent impact on rates.”

DCL chief executive Rob

Hall said it would support the

city council as it made further

considerations.

Concerns over boy racers

•From page 1

Said Mr Thomas: “The

information currently available

doesn’t indicate a specific issue

with anti-social road-user activity

in Waratah St, Briarmont St or

Orrick Cres.”

Cr Livingstone disagreed:

“Some residents have told me

that they have been reporting

in the boy racer issue in those

streets to the council call centre

and they haven’t had at times

the best of responses or there

hasn’t been any action, so they’re

feeling frustrated.”

“It’s definitely a problem and

there are no two ways about it,

and we need to do what we can

to address it.”

When asked if Cr Livingstone

was correct, Mr Thomas did not

want to comment.

Cr Livingstone has not

reported the boy racers he has

seen to police. Instead, he asked

the city council to visit the

streets. Once city council staff

had done so, Cr Livingstone

said it would give him stronger

grounds to go to police.

Said a police spokesperson:

“Police are not aware of boy

racer activity on these streets.

We would be glad to receive any

reports from the public that help

us to identify areas to focus on.”

Meanwhile, Cr Livingstone

said the city council has a role

BURNOUTS: Residents want

speed bumps in Waratah St,

to prevent boy racers causing

carnage.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

to play if boy racers are to be

stopped in Avondale. Last week,

he sent a request to city council

staff for speed bumps to be

installed.

Cr Livingstone said the

residents he has spoken to did

not want to go to Pegasus Post

with their concerns as they want

to keep their identities private.

Bid to collect and display history along trail

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Slaughter

INFORMATION is being

sought on the history of the

red zone areas covered by the

Te Ara Ōtākaro Avon River

Trail.

The information collected

will be displayed along the trail,

which runs from the beginning

of the Avon Loop to the edge of

New Brighton through Wainoni,

Burwood, Dallington and

Richmond.

Avebury House Trust

treasurer Hayley Guglietta said

the details about historic people

and places will be on signboards

along the trail.

Mrs Guglietta said the

information – which is being

collected by organisations

including the Avebury House

History Group, New Brighton

Museum, Dallington Residents

Association History Group and

the Avon-Otakaro Network –

would be forgotten if it is not put

on display.

“Our objective is to either

sign locate or digitally locate

heritage information that has

the potential to be lost due to

the red-zoning of that land,” she

said.

“As people are getting older

and that information is getting

lost, if we haven’t captured it

won’t know that story and that’s

a shame.”

One signboard outlining

the history of the Medway

footbridge in Richmond, which

was badly damaged in the

earthquakes, has already

been installed near the

bridge.

Mrs Guglietta said if

enough information is

collected, she hopes the

signboards along the trail

would be on display by the

end of the year.

about the red zone’s

history, phone 381

PEOPLE ARE also being asked to

share information about one of the

settlers who named New Brighton

– Stephen Brooker.

The information and photos

would be displayed on a sign along

the Te Ara Ōtākaro Avon River

Trail. New Brighton and Districts

Historical Society and Museum

president Tim Baker wants to find

photos of Mr Brooker

and any additional

details about his life.

Said Mr Baker: “He

was one of the first

settlers in the area

and someone said

what’s this called? He

said New Brighton,

because he came from Brighton

(England).

There is very little information

Tim Baker

available about Mr Brooker, he said.

“It would be nice to be able

to go along and say, well, this is

approximately where New Brighton

was named, in this year by Stephen

Brooker and a bit about him.”

Mr Baker said people should

get in touch with him or any of

the volunteer groups involved in

researching the area’s history if they

have information about Mr Brooker.

Pump track views sought

SCHOOLS

• By Matt Slaughter

FEEDBACK IS being sought on

a controversial pump track in

Shirley.

The city council began

consultation last week on

an $87,850 temporary track

planned for the former Shirley

Community Centre site.

Shirley resident Don Gould is

concerned about the cost of the

pump track and

is relieved people

have another

chance to make

the city council

change its mind.

He said the

money should be

Don Gould

spent on more

urgent matters,

like managing

the climate emergency, which

was declared by the city council

in May, and reducing chlorine

levels in the drinking water.

“Everybody is going to need to

tighten their belts a bit.”

Said city council community

parks manager Al Hardy: “We

are responding to a demand

for youth activities in the area.

There is a gap in our network

for skate and scootering

activities in the Shirley area, so

this proposal works to address

this. In the latest Annual Plan

to be adopted, the council has

included a provision of funding

to address climate change and

water quality.”

Mr Gould is also concerned

about spending this much on a

temporary pump track.

“I have no problem at all with

us spending $100,000 – because

this will be $100,000 by the time

we put it all in – on something

that’s a permanent civic facility,

but I do have a problem with

spending that money on

something that staff now tell

me is likely to only be there for

a year.”

Mr Hardy said a decision on

the pump track’s future if it is

installed has not been made.

“It could be moved to another

site that requires activation or

to address another gap in youth

facilities. We haven’t confirmed

SKATE:

Public

feedback

on the

pump track

Smith, 11,

how long it will remain at this

site.”

In April Pegasus Post reported

on Shirley Primary School pupil

Shannon Smith’s 30-signature

petition, which was presented to

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board, asking for a permanent

scooter, skateboard and bike

track to be built at MacFarlane

Park. However, a city council

investigation found the site

at 10 Shirley Rd was more

appropriate.

Shannon told Pegasus Post

he did not want the track to be

temporary, although he said it

would be great while it lasted.

Boxers following in fathers’ footsteps

YOUNG GUN: Daniel Meehan continued his

impressive junior boxing career by winning at

the New Zealand Golden Gloves in Rotorua.

• By Gordon Findlater

TWO TEENAGE Smiling Tigers

Boxing Club members are following

in the footsteps of their fathers

after winning Golden Glove titles

and gaining selection to the New

Zealand development team.

Daniel Meehan, 16, and Kwhali

Beauchamp, 14, backed up their

recent South Island Golden Glove

titles by going onto claim national

honours by unanimous decision in

Rotorua.

Meehan is the son of Danny

Meehan – a former Jameson Belt

holder. The belt is awarded to

the most scientific senior boxer

at the national championships.

Meanwhile, Beauchamp is the son of

former national champions and now

professional boxer Nort Beauchamp.

The pair have been boxing with

Smiling Tigers for four years

working under coach Mark Fuller.

Beauchamp won the cadet 40kg

title, while Meehan won the junior

60kg title.

“We’re absolutely stoked. Not just

for them to win, but the way they

fought was really pleasing,” said

Fuller.

Meehan’s title came as little

surprise to Fuller. The Christchurch

Boys’ High School student has

previously won two New Zealand

title and an Australian golden gloves

title. He also came into the NZ

Golden Gloves on the back of a win

in Australia.

“Because of his work rate and

his angle changes I think he had

SPORT

his opponent flummoxed, it was a

really convincing win for him,” said

Fuller.

However, Beauchamp’s result

came as more of a surprise for the

fighter shorter in stature than many

of his opponents.

“He’s a cracker, really fit, gives it

plenty and has got some really good

skills. I was absolutely stoked for

him,” said Fuller.

Titles were also won by Woolston

boxers Hamuera Tainui and Ryley

Sutherland. Tainui took out the

junior 66kg title, while Sutherland

won in the 46kg cadet.

All four Canterbury boxers have

also been selected in the New

Zealand junior development squad

following the Golden Gloves. The

squad will travel to Australia later in

the year.

“They’ve actually started concentrating

on the juniors as well which

is really good . . . this is the first time

in a very long time that they’ve sent

away a good size squad like this, it’s

going to be great and a good sign of

things to come I think,” said Fuller.

“All of those four boys have been

around a wee while now, they’re

only young, but they’ve got quite a

bit of experience and they’re only

going to get better with what the

Canterbury association is doing to

support them.”

CONTENDER: Kwhali Beauchamp won

the 40kg cadet title.

Did you know that musical training

can change brain structure and function

for the better? It can also improve longterm

memory and lead to better brain

development, particularly for those

who start at a young age. So why wait

any longer?? Come and join us at the

Christchurch School of Music!

CSM is a not-for-profit organisation with

a strong focus on community. From ages 2

to 92 we have something for everyone. On

a Saturday morning the whole family can

find something to suit.

For the young ones there are pre-school

and junior school classes, “Take Off with

Music”, 41/2 year olds can start on Suzuki

strings and at 6 the recorder is a great

instrument to learn. In 2019 we have a

fantastic deal for beginner recorder players

– just $52 for a year of tuition and this

includes a recorder and a book!!

Older children and adults may opt for

group or individual lessons on a specific

instrument (including voice). With six

orchestras, two concert bands, a Big Band,

a jazz combo, six wind ensembles, rock

bands, two choirs, chamber groups, a

samba band and a guitar ensemble there is

an ensemble to suit all levels and all ages.

If affordability is an issue, CSM may be

able to offer a discount through funding

provided by the Rata Foundation.

REAL ESTATE

Living the dream…

56 Purau Port Levy Rd, Purau Valley, Lyttelton Harbour

Price: $799,000

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 2 car garage | Listing Number: 8885

A charming, delightful 1950’s bungalow set

on nearly 1 acre of flat and very productive

land. North facing, sheltered, sunny and

private, this charming home is in excellent

order throughout having been loved and

carefully maintained over the years.

The top level of the house comprises 2

living areas, a large modern farmhouse style

kitchen with plenty of storage, a massive

master bedroom with adjoining bathroom

and a single bedroom currently used as an

office.

The master bedroom opens onto a covered

North facing verandah with a cosy coveredin

area with a day bed, the perfect place to

enjoy the afternoon sun, peace and birdlife

and to while away a few hours. Downstairs,

(externally accessed) are 2 double bedrooms,

bathroom and a kitchenette/dining area so

semi self-contained, perfect for extended

family or teenagers.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase in

the beautiful picturesque Purau Valley and to

obtain a small manageable holding like this is

really one of a kind.

The land is a mixture of lawns, gardens

and the most established and productive

orchard I have ever seen, with many many

fruit trees established vege beds and native

plantings. There is excellent access, a large

double garage, greenhouse and other useful

sheds and most importantly excellent water

supplies.

My vendors are retiring very reluctantly

and have loved every minute of the 10 years

they have spent here.

Purau Bay is approximately 30 minutes’

drive from Christchurch, making it a highly

desirable destination as it is so useable being

close to Christchurch.

Properties in this lovely valley and by

such a safe swimming beach are defying all

the odds and selling fast generally as they

come up very seldom. Excellent swimming,

boating, walking and stunning sunsets on

the hills, quick and easy access to Lyttelton

via the Diamond Harbour ferry (approx. 5

mins), local shops, cafés and bar make this a

fun filled place to visit.

Properties here make an excellent

investment and Purau Bay and valley is a

truly magical place to live.
