PARENTS AT St Francis of

Assisi Catholic School didn’t

want to fundraise for a $160,000

bike track – so they decided to

build it themselves.

The idea came about after

pupils at the Mairehau school,

which has been open for three

and a half years, used left over

soil to construct a temporary

bike and scooter track.

The school looked into

building a new track and plans

were designed by a landscape

architect.

But its construction was set

to cost at least $160,000. The

school decided this was too

much to fundraise – and that’s

when a group of parents stepped

in to help.

DOES ANYONE in the northwest

care about the long-term

future of the city’s water?

The recent attendance at drop-in

sessions in Belfast and Bishopdale

on the draft

suggest not.

Up to $10

billion has been

budgeted for water

management in the

Simon

Britten

was a near-zero turnout at the

drop-in information sessions held

over the last month.

With more than 1000

submissions on the Harewood,

Breens and Gardiners Rds

turnout at the water strategy dropin

sessions comes as a surprise.

“I’ve been to a lot of drop-in

sessions over the last few years,

and I’ve never seen such a low

turnout,” said Think Papanui’s

Simon Britten.

MUCH HAS been reported, discussed

and debated about the city’s water.

Chlorination, nitrates and whether we

will have enough supply in the decades to

come.

But as we reveal on page 1 today, public meetings to discuss

the long-term future of water haven’t exactly been awash with

interest.

In fact, you can count the number of people who have turned

up to the two meetings in the north-west suburbs on one hand.

Nineteen people in total – yes that’s 19 – have attended eight

public meetings across Christchurch.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board member

Aaron Campbell sums it up: “When it comes to the longer-term

stuff – the bigger picture stuff – trying to get people excited and

engaged on that, it’s a heck of a lot harder.”

Papanui one-stop service centre opens

BRYNDWR’S Richard

Barrington was the first person

to be served at Papanui Library’s

upgraded service centre.

And he says it was “magic”.

Mr Barrington is retired and

visits the library most days to

use a computer and read the

newspapers and magazines.

He didn’t realise the new

service centre, which opened

on Thursday, also renews motor

vehicle registrations, as it is a full

NZ Post agent.

He was pleased to find he

could renew his registration

at the service desk, and said

having so many services in one

place saves time, money and the

environment.

“I’m not a conservationist, but

it saves people going all around

town in their cars,” he said.

The service centre has reopened

after a revamp, which

involved knocking out the backoffice

and making a larger desk

space.

It is now considered a Post

Centre Plus, with postal and bill

payment services.

Said city council head of

citizen and customer services

Sarah Numan.“We are delighted

to be able to expand the range

of services we can offer local

residents from the Papanui

Service Centre.’’

Residents can also register

dogs, make finance repayments

and browse for a book in the

library – all in one trip.

The opening day was a success,

with people lining up to use the

new and improved centre.

NZ Post moved to the library

in February but shut while the

renovations took place. The

NZ Post service at Papanui

Kiwibank is no longer there, and

residents were concerned with

the prospect of not having a post

shop in Papanui.

Library staff member Jenny

Smith said the desk had been

massively popular, and it was a

great initiative.

Customer Nadine Engel said

about using the new service: “It’s

really convenient, it’s quick, and

everyone’s really friendly.”

Chris Handley, who has used

the NZ Post section at the centre

before, visited with his daughter

Freya.

He was happy with the

additional services offered.

“It’s good that it hasn’t

gone too far, it used to be just

around the corner. I think it’s

important to have it in the

community.”

The service desk will be open

from 9am-5pm weekdays.

Parents pitch in to

build new track at

St Francis of Assisi

•From page 1

On the first day of work, about

14 parents showed up to help.

Hirepool even loaned the group

a digger for the day – free of

charge.

All the parents needed to do

was hire a loader, which cost

about $600. The

group then moved

the soil in a day

and a half, a job

which was quoted

for about $60,000 in

some tenders.

Principal Jo Earl

said it is amazing to

have parents help

make the project a

reality.

“We’re pretty

excited that we’ve

got parents backing

us and wanting this

to happen for the kids,” she said.

But it’s not just the parents

doing the work, a number of

children are spending their

weekends at the track working on

small areas at a time.

Julian Meates is a parent

representative on the board of

trustees and is one of the project

co-ordinators who has been

organising working bees to get

the job done.

Mr Meates said it’s good to see

other people from within the

community coming

along to lend a hand

as well.

“We want this to

be a community

thing, and the

working bees are as

much about building

communities as

getting things done,”

he said.

The track’s

completion depends

on when the asphalt

Jo Earl can be funded and

put in. A date has not

been set because the project is so

open-ended.

But with the amount of

progress made already, the

parents are hoping they can get it

done by about March.

Low turnout at water sessions

•From page 1

In spite of the event being well

advertised on the Think Papanui

Facebook page, the Bishopdale

session on July 8 attracted only

two members of the public, not

including Mr Britten.

Bishopdale Community

Trust member Chris Coles said

generally there

has been good

attendance at

similar drop-in

meetings.

“It looks like

water isn’t such a

high priority in

Chris Coles people’s minds,”

said Mr Coles.

The Belfast meeting, which

was held earlier this month,

also had a low

turnout, with

only two people.

A Belfast

Community

Network

spokeswoman

said she had no

Campbell

idea there was

a meeting, and

didn’t know

where it was held.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

member Aaron Campbell said

people are concerned about

issues that impact on them now,

but aren’t looking as closely at

long-term issues.

“When it comes to the longerterm

stuff, the bigger picture

stuff, trying to get people excited

and engaged on that, it’s a heck

of a lot harder,” Mr Campbell

said.

He said the lack of engagement

could be due to the high amount

of public consultation over city

council issues.

Out of the eight drop-in

sessions held across the city,

about 19 people in total attended.

Said Di Keenan, city council

head of public information and

participation: “Considering our

promotion of this consultation

has been consistent with other

consultations of city-wide

importance, these numbers are

unusually low.”

submissions had been received as

of last week.

“Council really needs to

that.”

“Whereas the community

with the local issues specific to

an area.”

Mr MacDonald said the

board’s new delegations would

mean decisions, like the naming

of cemeteries, will be a more

streamlined process.

Avonhead Park Cemetery

had a name change proposal

recently, and there was

support in the community for

it to become Avonhead

Memorial Cemetery in honour

of the quake victims buried

there.

However, the city council

recomended not changing the

name.

Under the new agreement, the

community board would have

been able to make a decision on

the name change.

“A step in that direction is

a really good start from the

council,” said Mr MacDonald.

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

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

Barbershop competition

for Rangi students

PUT YOUR perceptions of hairy

harmonising men to one side,

barbershop is not immune to

gender equality in 2019.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School is

preparing for the regional Barbershop

competition on July 29 at

The Piano in Christchurch.

Barbershop is a style of

a cappella singing in four-part

close harmony.

Director of music at Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School, Janet

Kingsbury, said there’s a

camaraderie in barbershop that is

unique to the genre.

“The girls, who are all heavily

involved in a wide range of music

genres and groups, have been

working together just this year

and have really bloomed through

exploring the challenges and

delights of a cappella singing in

the barbershop style.”

“There’s a playfulness with the

style which is wonderful to watch

develop as the girls grow in confidence,”

she said.

The girls in the quartet –

coached by Helen Charlton – are

all current or former members of

Rangi’s senior choir, Resolutions.

Year 12 student Georgina Scott

sings lead in the quartet and

said barbershop is great fun and

recommends anyone who is inter-

ested should give it a go.

“I love doing it with the girls

as it’s a fun and rewarding way

to tap into some different music

genres and really work on improving

our singing. Working as

a quartet is really exposing and

it’s a great way to learn about

your voice and see your strengths

and weaknesses,” she said.

The regional barbershop competition

is run by Youth Singers

in Harmony to encourage and

support young people in barbershop

a cappella singing.

New mural to brighten pre-school

• By Claire Booker

IT’S A CASE of out with the

old and in with the new for a

mural at Aratupu Preschool and

Nursery.

The Papanui pre-school’s

previous mural, which faced

Harewood Rd, was part of the

community for 18 years but had

to be removed as it had faded

and its anti-graffiti coating

started to peel off.

The new mural has not been

designed yet, but it is hoped it

will brighten up the currently

single-shade wall and help deter

graffiti and tagging.

Said Christchurch Methodist

Mission executive director Jill

Hawkey: “Although we’ve not

yet decided on a design, it will

represent our commitment to

the tamariki and whānau that

Aratupu works for.”

The pre-school has been

granted $500 from the Papanui-

Innes Community Board to go

towards the mural.

Board member John

Stringer wanted the project

to get $1000.

“I argued this has been a

community asset for almost

two decades, paid for by the

childcare centre. This $1000

grant was towards something

that could last 20 years or more,”

he said.

Aratupu also plans to develop

a new logo, which will be

incorporated in the mural.

Work on the mural should start

later this year.

Aratupu is run by the

Christchurch Methodist

Mission and celebrated its 40th

anniversary in March.

GROUND-BREAKING: Richmond Working Men’s Club president Chris Taylor starts the final stage of the rebuild.

Workingmen’s club rebuild continues

• By Claire Booker

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 well

as the committee.

The Richmond club, which has

been around for more than 100

years, is one of the oldest clubs

in New Zealand and it is hoped

that the new design will blow its

members away.

The plan for the club is to

secure its future with strong

strategies around its food and

beverage offerings, with a

focus on the local community

and perhaps targeting a wider

demographic.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Stream

transformed

A QUAKE-damaged

stormwater drain in Shirley

which runs into Horseshoe

Lake has been given a dramatic

makeover.

The concrete drain, known

as Number 1 Drain, has been

transformed into a naturalised

stream complete with ponds

and floating wetlands.

The floating wetlands are

densely bedded with plants,

which will send their roots into

the water and take up nitrogen,

phosphates and heavy metals,

improving the water quality in

Horseshoe Lake and the Avon

River.

City council land drainage

manager Keith Davison said the

extensive work done on Number

1 Drain, which was one of

the concrete-lined waterways

worst affected by the earthquakes,

has reduced the flood

risk for properties upstream

in Shirley and improved the

habitat for aquatic life.

“We did a fish survey prior

to the works, and found four

fish through the drain system.

When we surveyed again

recently, we counted 76 fish in

just a small portion of the drain

so naturalising the drain has

clearly improved the aquatic

habitat,’’ Mr Davison said.

CONTEMPORARY RETIREMENT LIVING

Creating new

treats is this

baker’s passion

The Country Kitchen Bakery in Redwood

has been owned and operated by passionate

baker Shane Mikaere since 2005.

Originally from Rangiora, and with 22 years

in the industry, Shane combines his love of

baking with a keen business interest, and

over the last 14 years has created many tasty

new treats for his customers.

“We have over 120 different products

to choose from, including 18 pie flavours

ranging from our homemade butter chicken

with 25 ingredients to our Mexican and

nacho-top pie,” Shane says.

Last year, Country Kitchen Bakery

celebrated selling its one-millionth pie with a

Breeze radio promotion to design and win the

one-millionth pie. The winner was a chicken,

chorizo and sundried tomato pie.

“One of our current top-selling products is

our exquisite cheesecake

jars. These are available in premium cases for

weddings or catering functions,” Shane says.

Creating new, original products from

scratch is what Shane loves to do.

Fresh, tasty takeaways

get rave reviews

With the increasing focus on

healthy eating, there’s one type of

takeaway that happily fits into that

category, while at the same time being

fresh, tasty, quick and convenient –

souvlakis from Redwood Souvlaki in

Main North Road.

Whether you are wanting a large

meal or a lighter lunch snack, you will

find it there – they offer three sizes

of souvlaki to suit all appetites. The

ingredients include locally produced

pita bread, locally sourced organic

yoghurt, and your choice of marinated

lamb leg, succulent chicken, or

juicy topside steak – all cooked to

perfection.

They also have set meals with a

choice of rice or couscous, snack

boxes and combos, while their highquality

fries are always a popular

addition to the order.

Redwood Souvlaki is a favourite

with customers not only from the

local Redwood area, but also from

as far away as Rangiora, Kaiapoi and

with

Monique

The name Monty Parti is becoming

increasingly well known in the

Christchurch real estate market –

especially in the northern suburbs of the

city.

As the franchise holder of Mike Pero

Northwood in Main North Road, which

works across these areas including

Belfast, Northwood, Redwood,

Casebrook, Prestons and Styx Mill, Monty

is building a reputation for honesty,

integrity and effective marketing in this

highly competitive sector.

Monty’s career in real estate began

eight years ago and he is passionate

about selling property. He says the most

important quality he offers his vendors is

honesty. That, and open communication

with vendors and buyers. And the most

important element in getting a property

sold quickly at a price satisfactory to

even New Brighton – such is their

reputation for flavour, quality and

friendly service.

Online reviews tell the story. As one

on Google puts it: “Very friendly, good

food, and using environmentally safe

packaging!!! Awesome”.

And another: “Absolutely the best

Souvlaki you can get. Very tasty, the

hot chips are fantastic!”

Opening hours are Monday

and Tuesday, 4.30pm-8.30pm,

Aratupu offers quality education

and strong whānau support

Parenting a preschooler

comes with

its struggles. To make

the journey for families

juggling households,

jobs, relationships

and finances a little

less difficult, Aratupu

Preschool & Nursery

offers the services of a

whānau support worker.

It was as a young

mother of three

that Kelly Bevege’s

involvement with

Aratupu began. Her

partner and his five

siblings had gone to

Aratupu as children

Kelly Bevege

so Kelly made the

natural decision to send theirs along, too. She credits the

support she received from the whānau support worker for

getting her through postnatal depression. At the onset of

depression, the support worker told her about parenting

programmes, confidence courses and relaxation classes.

Things began to improve. “It was a place I felt like I could

come and ask for help. The whānau support worker was

someone I knew I could come to without being judged

and say ‘I’m struggling” or just sit down with and cry.”

One day, Kelly was asked to take a relieving teacher

position at Aratupu. This led to the offer of a permanent

position, on condition she take teacher training. Kelly

went on to earn her diploma, with the support of Aratupu

colleagues, and is today a teacher there. “Everyone

believed in me. This place has been such a huge part of

my life for 22 years now and it truly does feel like home.”

In a couple of months, Kelly’s first grandchild will also

become an Aratupu pre-schooler.

The Aratupu whānau support service is unique to

preschools in northwest Christchurch. The on-site worker

helps with parenting or points whānau to help elsewhere.

Advice is offered in a compassionate and understanding

manner. Support and advocacy is complemented by other

services of the Christchurch Methodist Mission. On

Friday mornings, whānau are invited to the weekly coffee

group.

Preschool is the perfect place to have a whānau support

worker. “This is such a vulnerable time for families.

Parents can be going through depression, having to work,

or be first time parents not knowing what to do. There

can be relationship break-ups, as well,” Kelly says.

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

Teens show circus skills

• By Matt Slaughter

TEENAGE CIRCUS performers

have wowed crowds.

The Christchurch Circus Trust

put on three performances of

Circus Berserkus at Roy Stokes

Hall i, 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

a bit of a family sort of feel

around the troop.

“They’re really supportive

of each other and because of

that the performance comes

together as this really joyful

experience.”

Most of the performers

have been involved with the

trust for three to four years

and have performed in other

shows.

Mr Carrow said in spite of the

difficult skills they demonstrated,

most people could learn to do

them with practice.

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

Plunket around Canterbury at www.facebook.com/canterburyplunket

Fire rages, homes at risk

Sweet as: Appreciating the kumara

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.
