Father’s WW1 experience in print

• By Matt Slaughter

IN MARCH 1918, soldier

William Close was taken

prisoner by the Germans at

the Somme.

This may have saved his

life.

Just weeks later, the

majority of the soldiers he

had served beside in the 11th

and 13th battalion of Royal

Sussex Regiment were killed

during Germany’s Spring

Offensive.

William’s story has

now been told by his son,

South New Brighton

resident and former city

councillor David Close in

his new book Behind the

German Lines.

David said part of the

book was a reflective account

William had written shortly

after he returned home from

World War 1 and some brief

diary entries he had kept in

1916.

Said David: “It’s a

fairly brief account, but it’s

about half the book and the

rest of it, I’ve provided maps

to help people understand

the war on the Western

Front and in particular, the

big German offence, which

was launched on March 20,

1918.”

challenge

to critics

• By Matt Slaughter

DAVID EAST has issued a

challenge to those who say he

hasn’t done enough for the

Coastal Ward – stand for council

yourself.

The two-term city councillor

has become the target of

online criticism on the Peoples

Independent

Republic of

New Brighton

Facebook group.

New Brighton

Residents’ Association

head

Brian Donovan is

one of the group

members who David East

has been critical

of Cr East.

Mr Donovan told Pegasus

Post it was time for David East

to go.

“The reality is that he fell out

of touch with what people were

saying, because there was a hell

of a lot of people in New Brighton

with some great ideas and he just

seems to have been absent when

some of those ideas were put

forward.”

IT MUST be election time.

The gloves are coming off in the two

eastern suburbs’ wards, Coastal and

Burwood, and it’s getting feisty.

We’ve reported on the verbal dustup

between sitting councillor Glenn

Livingstone and rival Phil Mauger in Burwood. Now Coastal

councillor David East is feeling the burner (see page 1).

He’s been criticised on the Peoples Independent Republic of

New Brighton Facebook group, and New Brighton Residents’

Association head Brian Donovan is amping it up.

He says it is time for East to go. But East has fired back with a

good response.

“Mr Donovan should really just put his money where his

mouth is. If he thinks he can do better, well I think he should

stand for council himself and test the water.”

Bid to improve bus shelter access

• By Matt Slaughter

CONCERNS over accessibility

will be addressed before a

proposal to install another

bus shelter on Shirley Rd is

approved.

The Papanui-Innes

Community Board says the

planned new bus shelter and

the existing shelter outside

Shirley Intermediate School do

not provide enough room for

wheelchair users and people

with mobility issues.

Board member Jo Byrne said

it has asked

city council

staff to talk to

the Ministry

of Education

about using

its berm space

outside the

school to create

Jo Byrne

extra room at

the stop for

people with mobility issues.

Said Ms Byrne: “If we could

set that bus stop back a little

bit further onto the ministryowned

land, that will give us

more footpath space.”

The plan to upgrade the

existing bus shelter and include

space for another shelter has

been with the board since early

this year.

The request to add more space

was put to city council staff at

the board’s recent meeting.

Said a city council

spokesperson: “A number of

discussions have been had with

the MoE previously and council

have now re-engaged with

the MoE following last week’s

meeting to explore this further.

Discussions are ongoing. There

is no set deadline for this

decision to be made.”

Ms Byrne said upgrading the

bus stop has taken longer than

hoped but the board wants to get

it right for people with mobility

and accessibility issues.

“Consultation for this

was quite some time ago,

unfortunately, because it’s

been quite a prolonged affair. It

is sort of painful, but we want

to make sure it’s done right

and we want to make sure our

cyclists are safe and the road

users are safe and the bus users

are safe. Mobility issues and

accessibility issues are a huge

passion for the board . . . we

know how important it is to the

community and so many people

are reliant on public transport,

especially going to (The Palms),

so we will be prioritising their

needs.”

The board has asked city

council staff to report back to it.

Ms Byrne said she does not

know when staff will make a

decision, but hopes it will be

soon so the bus stop upgrade

can start.

Boy racers part of a wider issue

THE RECENT boy racer story

Apart from that, I observe

there is already quite enough

in this city if the number

We don’t need a list of complaints

be speed bumps, lighting, paths

or the desperation and the exasperation

of the New Brighton people to

see some real progress, and I mean,

aside from the hot pools and the

Cr East said he had worked hard

for the Coastal Ward and called Mr

Donovan’s comments “absolutely

gobsmacking.”

“To turn around and have this sort

of rubbish thrown in my face, I find

quite offensive to be quite honest.”

Mr Donovan said the New Brighton

Residents’ Association as a whole,

agreed it was time for a change and

was encouraging young people to

run for city council and other roles

within local body politics.

Cr East said he supported this, but

these roles were not easy to step into.

“It’s the democratic right of

anybody to stand for council and I

encourage them to do so.

“Some people think that they

can get elected, come in, wave a big

stick and things are going to get

done. Well, it just doesn’t work that

way and there are processes to go

through.”

WORK ON the final stage of

the $12.9 million rebuild of the

earthquake-damaged Richmond

Working Men’s Club has started.

Club president Chris Taylor

broke the ground with a ceremonial

spade last week before

construction workers moved in

to start the project.

Work will be finished in July

next year.

The final stage of the construction

will be a new function

venue that will accommodate

weddings, corporate dinners,

show events and other functions.

The completed complex will

have three high-grade squash

courts, a new restaurant and

bistro, a TAB terminal and game

room, and plenty of parking.

The first part of the rebuild is

finished, so the club is open for

meetings and events.

Mr Taylor has been the president

of the club for the last three

years and has been a member of

the committee for 17 years.

“It’s been a long road, but we’re

finally under way,” he said.

Cook Brothers Construction

won the bid for the construction

of the project after going

through the robust tender process

which was run by the club.

The design of the new

clubroom was decided by way

of input and discussions which

involved all club members as

It was originally thought the

trust would move into All Saints

plus power, plus phone. We

couldn’t afford that.”

In spite of securing a new site

meaning the trust’s future was

people who used its services and

attended its events.

The trust’s new headquarters is

only a short distance from its old

one, but she still expected the

move would result in the loss of

some members.

“It is hard because the elderly

don’t like change . . . they don’t

want to shift.

“It’s hard on elderly to move.”

The trust has been operating

out of Wainoni Methodist

Church for more than 17 years

and Mrs Chapman said some

were struggling with the idea of

leaving.

However, a visit to the new site

on Wednesday had seen reluctant

members change their tune.

“Everyone’s finding it hard.

“But, yesterday after the walk

through, I got a lot of positive

vibes, so I’m quite relieved.”

She said, ultimately, it would

be great to be in a building that

didn’t leak.

CELEBRATING: The Close family in Christchurch on Christmas

Day, 1950. From left – Edwin, Will and David; Daphne, Fay, Elsie

and Lottie.

‘My father was not badly treated by the Germans’

•From page 1

William, who served as a

signaller and often a stretcherbearer,

was captured on the

second day of this offensive at

Villers-Faucon in France.

David said the book outlined

William’s experiences as a

prisoner in France and briefly

Belgium, forced to do jobs such

as repairing roads and building

railways to assist the German

war effort.

But, David said his father’s

account was not as negative as

many would expect.

“On the whole, my father

was not badly treated by the

Germans.”

“The attitude to prisoners or to

the other side seemed to be that

no matter how hard you tried

to slaughter the other side, once

that soldier on the opposing

side was wounded or captured,

he ceased to be an enemy, he

became a fellow human being.”

William was freed by the Germans

just before Armistice Day

on November 11, 1918.

In 1920, two years after returning

home to England, William

and his wife Lottie Close

moved to Christchurch. They

lived in Bryndwr and ran a plant

nursery, later moving to St Martins

to open a market garden.

David said his dad didn’t mind

telling less serious stories about

the war, but harsher details like

the friends he’d lost were kept

secret for many years.

It wasn’t until just before his

death at the age of 93, that William

expressed a wish to have his

account published.

But, David said it had been lost

for many years.

“He told us that he’d written

this account, but it was lost

somewhere in the house and it

wasn’t until a few years before he

died that it actually turned up.”

David said he had wanted to

tell his father’s story for many

years, but his busy working life

had delayed this.

Last month, William’s wish

was finally granted.

Behind the German Lines

was launched at Canterbury

Museum.

David said 1000 copies had

been released for those interested

in reading it.

Museum staff had also stored

Teens show circus skills

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Slaughter

TEENAGE CIRCUS performers

have wowed crowds.

The Christchurch Circus Trust

put on three performances of

Circus Berserkus at Roy Stokes

Hall in New Brighton, with 14

performers showing off their

skills.

Producer Chris Carrow

said the performers rehearsed

for about four months to put

the show together and were

supported by two backstage

crew members during the

shows.

He said a range of talents were

showcased and enjoyed by about

500 audience members over

three nights.

The shows included aerial

acrobatics, balancing acts,

contortion, juggling and

clowning.

Said Mr Carrow: “We had

some people say, you’re better

than Cirque du Soleil.”

“Sometimes, you would say,

well a local circus, it’s just going

to be something high schoolish,

but we surpass that.”

Mr Carrow said those

involved in Circus Berserkus

had done more than just improve

their skills as performers by

taking part.

“Because most of them have

been together for a while, there’s

“They’re really supportive

spoilt for

choice

Award-winning fish & chip shop

seeks a place in The Bidfood

Peoples Choice Award’s

Popular fish and chip shop, Gourmet Seafoods

QE11 in Travis Road, has won several awards

over the years, with the latest one being the ‘Best

Practice Frying Award’ from The NZ Chip Group,

an organisation that monitors the nutritional

standards of fried chips around New Zealand.

Shop owner Peter and son Ben both received the

award after completing the online training, which

also makes Gourmet Seafoods eligible for entry in

The Chip Group’s Bidfood People’s Choice Award,

in which customers vote online for their favourite

chip shop. The website is www.thechipgroup.co.nz

and Gourmet Seafoods QE11 is one of 28 takeaway

shops around New Zealand qualified to take part.

‘You can vote instore or you can vote at home,”

Peter says. “Entries close on July 30, so be quick to

vote and be part of the success story.”

Gourmet Seafoods has some new neighbours,

those being the new Shirley Boys’ High and

Avonside Girls’ school campus on Travis Road,

which opened in May, and the new gymnasium

next to the QE11 pool, which opened earlier this

month.

“We welcome all the new people to the

community,” Peter says. “The students come in

after school and they are very good to deal with.

They are polite and well-mannered.

“We treat everyone that comes into the shop as

individuals – they all have great stories, which are

great to listen to.”

Gourmet Seafoods has an extensive menu, with a

wide variety of tasty takeaways including souvlakis,

and spicy marinated chicken fillets, which Peter

says are in great demand, as they are the “real deal”.

Gourmet Seafoods QE11 is located in the

Travis Road shopping centre at 251 Travis Rd.

They are open seven days a week and off-street

parking is available.

Peter and his wife Helen are encouraging

customers to vote for them

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

Keeping kids busy at the Youth Alive Trust

The school holidays have

been packed with action

for Logan Bakker and

Lily McCambridge (left).

They spent time at the

New Brighton Beachside

Playground as part of the

Youth Alive Trust’s junior and

senior holiday programmes.

About 80 children took part

in activities, including trips to

Timezone, Inflatable World

and the Margaret Mahy

Playground.

CREATE: Skye Young, Alice Martin, Naomi

Yappa, Emily Tipper and Shannon Brennan

at the Youth Alive Trust headquarters in New

Brighton.

GLADIATORS: Toby Maxwell and Ben Pearson

at Inflatable World.

SLIDE:

GAMES: Emily Tipper, Skye Young and Alice

Martin at Timezone.

Many services provided for families

through Plunket

Garden maintenance is carried out

by volunteers at Plunket clinics, but

more are needed.

For families with young children, getting help and support from people

with knowledge and expertise can be a hugely beneficial, for both

parents and children.

The Royal New Zealand Plunket Trust offers a variety of services for children

under five and their whanau, from Well Child appointments with one of their

highly qualified and friendly Plunket Nurses through to Playgroups and

Parenting Education classes.

What most people don’t realise is that Plunket, a non-for-profit

organisation, is only partially funded through a contract with the Ministry

of Health. Other financial support comes from the generosity of grants

and donations from the community and fund-raising activities.

Plunket provides a number of Community Services, which rely on money

from fundraising, grants and donations, with a dedicated team of staff and

volunteers. While administered and led at a Canterbury Area level, these

Community Services are run for and by the communities where they are

based, responding directly to community need.

Through Community Services, services for families are provided for free

or at a minimal cost. They include:

Helping out at a working bee at the

Papanui Merivale Plunket grounds.

• Parenting Education (PEPE)

• Toddler groups such

as ‘Toes and Giggles’

• Coffee/Support/Parent Groups

• Playgroups

• Toy Libraries

Can you help?

Plunket is currently looking for volunteers to help support with some

maintenance of their properties, such as mowing lawns, maintaining a

garden, painting a fence or the odd handy-man job like fixing something

to the wall.

For example, there are two retired ladies that enjoy a catch-up while

doing a bit of gardening at a local Plunket clinic, where staff say it is a

‘win-win’ for both them and Plunket.

If you know of anyone, from an able and willing retiree to a local Service

Group that could help out, Plunket would be grateful if you would

pass this on to them. For anyone who is interested or would like more

information please phone or text Rebecca on 021 713 692.

Like them on Facebook and keep up to date with what’s happening in

Tasty Bites

Local

News

Now

Sweet as: Appreciating the kumara

Fire rages, homes at risk

Of all the

wonderful

vegetables we

have available

to us, kumara –

or sweet potato

as its known

in other parts

of the world – would have

to be a favourite for Kiwis.

Deanna Copland provides

an example of a hearty

winter soup, which is sure to

please

Spiced kumara soup with

almonds

Ingredients

2 Tbsp coconut oil

6-8 medium kumara, ends

removed, scrubbed and grated

3 cloves garlic, crushed

2 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp ground coriander

Sea salt and black pepper

1-litre chicken or vegetable stock

2 cups unsweetened almond milk

½ cup natural flaked almonds

2 Tbsp dukkah

Directions

Heat a tablespoon of coconut

oil in a large pot over high heat.

Add the kumara, garlic, cumin,

coriander, salt and pepper and

cook, stirring, for 5min or until

the kumara has softened.

Add the stock and almond

milk. Cover and bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat to medium and

cook for 15min until the soup

has reduced slightly.

While the soup is cooking,

heat the remaining oil in a small

fry pan over high heat. Add the

almonds and dukkah and cook,

stirring until golden and crisp.

Divide the soup among four

bowls and top with the almond

mixture.

Serve with a slice of crusty

pumpkin seed sourdough for the

ultimate winter meal.

Enjoy a healthy salad with

your kumara. For this recipe,

soak your spelt overnight

ready to eat the following

evening. Perfect eaten warm,

this salad also keeps well

in the fridge for a couple of

days, so save those leftovers

for weekday lunches

Roasted carrot, pearled

spelt and orange salad

Ingredients

1 red onion, chopped

300g baby carrots, greens intact

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus

extra for drizzling

200g (1 cup) dry spelt (soaked

overnight in cold water)

1 medium orange

2 generous handfuls of kale,

finely shredded

2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

6 whole dried figs, finely chopped

A fistful of crushed roasted

Hazelnuts

Sea salt and cracked

Black pepper

Directions

Heat the oven to 200 deg C.

Place the red onion on a baking

tray with the carrots (greens

removed and set aside) and a

drizzle of olive oil. Season with

salt and pepper and roast for

20min.

Once the carrots and red

onion have gone into the oven,

thoroughly rinse the soaked spelt

and boil over a medium heat for

20min as well.

Grate the zest from the orange

and set aside. Squeeze the juice

from the orange.

Place the shredded kale in a

large bowl along with the two

tablespoons of olive oil, apple

cider vinegar and orange juice,

massaging it into the kale for

5min.

Add the cooked spelt, roasted

carrots and onion and carrot

greens to the bowl with the kale.

Toss in the orange zest, finely

chopped dried figs and crushed

hazelnuts. Give everything a

good mix and feel free to season

further with cracked black

pepper and sea salt, before

drizzling with a little extra olive

oil.

Penthouse $1,495,000 - 2 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 living rooms | 1 dining room | 1 study | 2 car-garage | 1 lift

Recent refurbishments have seen

the iconic Kamahi Apartments utterly

transformed to meet the needs of

contemporary lives. Now earthquakestrengthened

to 100% of the National

Building Standard, this development

offers an extraordinary lifestyle in a

setting second-to-none. Right alongside

the Avon River, with views across

picturesque Hagley Park, it is zoned for

top public schools (with a wide choice

of private schools also nearby) and is

strolling distance to Victoria Street

restaurants or a short drive to Merivale

Village.

Apartments range from ground floor,

levels 1 to 3 and then the Penthouse. All

feature open-plan living and dining and

some ground floor units open to outdoor

living, set within a private courtyard

garden. Warmed by a heat pump and

decorated in neutral contemporary tones,

this is a beautiful space for relaxing and

entertaining. The kitchen alongside is

a sleek and sophisticated workspace,

with high-spec appliances including

under-bench oven and ceramic cooktop.

Two bedrooms share a stunning new

bathroom, while a basement carpark

and storage locker ensure the utmost

practicality. Lift access and shared use of

a beautifully landscaped garden elevate

this property to an exceptional standard.

Zoning for Elmwood School, Heaton

Intermediate, Boys’ High and Girls’

High underpins the value of this highly

desirable blue-chip location. Don’t miss

the opportunity to be part of an icon.
