Residents frustrated

over pipeline ‘torture’

• By Jess Gibson

HEATHCOTE Valley residents

have described a multi-million

dollar wastewater project being

undertaken outside their property

as “torture”.

THe city council is now dealing

with residents at three properties

who have been affected by phase

four of its Lyttelton Harbour

wastewater scheme.

Creag Foxton-McCulloch and

Victoria Foxton have endured

almost two-and-a-half months

of constant noise, dust, potholes,

muddy roads and groundshaking,

which they likened to

an earthquake. The couple were

never told they would have to

put up with these issues outside

their Scruttons Rd home while

contractors Fulton Hogan work to

install a pipeline at a cost of $8.3m.

The job still has at least another six

months to go.

City council services general

manager David Adamson said

the project was consulted on as a

whole in 2015 instead of on a stageby-stage

basis. He said the public

was invited to give feedback on

two options to connect Lyttelton

Harbour communities’ wastewater

to the Lyttelton Rd tunnel in 2015.

YOU HAVE to sympathise with Heathcote

Valley residents currently enduring the

noise, vibrations and shaking that goes

with a major infrastructure project (see

page 1).

Creag Foxton-McCulloch and Victoria

Foxton have gone public in Southern View to air their

frustrations over the Heathcote Valley part of the $53 million

Lyttelton pipeline.

The city council consulted with the public back in 2015 over

what lay ahead. But Creag and Victoria say they weren’t aware

what was going to happen in their part of the valley until work

started a few months ago.

The couple, and others, will unfortunately have to endure it for

another several months. Fulton Hogan, the company contracted

to do the work, isn’t responding to our questions.

No surprises there.

No progress finding MDF solution at Owaka site

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ONGOING: A resource consent has been lodged to mix the

MDF at the Owaka site in with soil. Owaka Holdings director

Alan Edge said mixing the MDF in with soil is a “safer” option.

THE ONGOING saga to get

medium density fibre removed

from the contentious Owaka site

is in limbo.

Owaka Holdings Ltd lodged a

resource consent application to

combine about 6800m of MDF

with a similar amount of soil

to form a bund at its site on 59

Owaka Rd.

The bund is proposed to be

covered with topsoil and planted

with vegetation and grass.

If approved, the MDF would

no longer need to be removed

from the site.

The site has been a contentious

issue for years and came to a

head when the MDF spontaneously

caught alight spreading

thick smoke and taking weeks to

contain.

The city council issued Owaka

Holdings an abatement notice in

April 2015, which said all MDF

had to be removed by April 2016.

The city council did not reimpose

it after it lapsed because it

started a compliance investigation.

In April last year, the city

council threatened Environment

Court action over Owaka Holdings

Ltd failing to comply with

removing the MDF.

City council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston told

Southern View this week enforcement

action is on hold pending

the outcome of the application.

The resource consent was

lodged on November 27 and city

council staff is currently waiting

on more information before

proceeding the application.

It is waiting for further information

relating to stormwater,

transmission lines, contamination

and approval from Orion,

which is adjacent to the site.

Ms Weston said the last

notification the city council

received regarding the MDF

being removed was between the

period of January-May, 2017.

So far, 539.49 tonnes have been

removed.

In April last year, a city

council investigation found the

stockpiles of MDF were not permitted

by the District Plan and

not authorised by a resource

consent. MDF is an engineered

wood product made by breaking

down hardwood or softwood

residuals.

Owaka Holdings director

Alan Edge said he thinks the

proposal is a safer option.

When asked by Southern View

if the proposal would save the

company the expense of removing

the MDF from the site, Mr

Edge said “not really.”

“The amount of money the

consultants and scientists have

done on the MDF has not been

cheap,” he said.

The Owaka site has been

a contentious issue with the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board for years.

But city councillor Jimmy

Chen, board chairman Mike

Mora and deputy chairwoman

Helen Broughton were unaware

the resource consent had been

lodged.

Mrs Broughton said she only

found out because she kept asking

council staff for updates on

the removal of the MDF.

“We were promised a briefing

every two months and we

haven’t had any briefings . . . I

got told there was no need for a

briefing because it was no longer

an issue of the MDF being taken

away.”

Mrs Broughton said she was

concerned because she thought

the MDF was being taken away

and it is not.

Cr Chen said he has not seen

a copy of the resource consent

but is trusting city council

planners will follow the process

to determine the safety of the

proposal. An assessment of

environmental effects found

the proposal had considerable

positive effects in providing an

on-site solution to the MDF

material.

Orion, which is adjacent to

the site, was consulted on the

proposal. Its works delivery

manager Anthony O’Donnell

said Orion was concerned

about stormwater run-off

entering their property. Orion

is in ongoing discussions about

matters raised in the proposed

plans.

No objections to ownership

change at Henry’s Hornby

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NO OBJECTIONS have been

lodged against a liquor store

application which is located in

the same complex as a Work and

Income office in Hornby.

Skudar Ltd lodged

the new application for

the current off-licence

Henrys Hornby on 21

Shands Rd. The new

application is sought

due to a change of

ownership at the site.

The store is currently

operating under

Imperial Discount

Liquor Ltd.

If approved, it would operate

Monday-Sunday, 8am-10pm,

under the name of Henry’s BWS

Hornby.

The application received

mixed views at the Greater

Hornby Residents’ Association

meeting recently due to the store

being located a few doors down

from Work and Income.

Chairman Marc Duff said he

hadn’t heard of any problems

as a result of the store’s location

before, and it “doesn’t really

stick out that it is there.”

“I think if it was a new liquor

store you would see a stronger

community feeling . . . I think I

Marc Duff

Loss of income and damage concern to property

•From page 1

However, regardless of outcome,

the plan to lay a pipeline through

Heathcote and Woolston would

have remained the same.

“We’re addressing each

complaint individually and

working with our contractor

to find a solution for residents.

Complaints are followed up with

emails or phone calls from the

project manager and face-to-face

engagement with the contractor,”

Mr Adamson said.

Mr Foxton-McCulloch, who is

the ex-chairman of the Heathcote

Valley Community Association,

was not aware of the consultation

or the drop-in session in 2015.

would have a stronger

view if it wasn’t a renewal

but it is a renewal so it is a bit

different.”

Member Mark Peters said the

close proximity of the store to

the Work and Income office,

operated by the Ministry

of Social Development,

was “unfortunate.”

“It is a one-stop shop.

You go in and get your

benefit and then you

wander into a liquor

store. That is not really an

ideal situation,” he said.

But he said he

decided not to make an

objection.

This is because when a new

licence application is made

due to a change of ownership,

the suitability of the licensee

is the only ground in what an

objection can be made.

Mr Peters said he is in two

minds because Henry’s is

operated by Foodstuffs South

Island Ltd – and is probably one

of the better liquor stores.

But a location such as

The Hub Hornby may have been

more appropriate, he said.

MSD regional commissioner

Shane Carter would not

comment on the application.

The only mention of Scruttons

Rd in the consultation document

was to say that the pipeline would

be installed there, as well as in

Godley, Simeon, Norwich and

Gladstone Quays and Port Hills,

and Ferry Rds. It did not mention

anything about disruption to

nearby properties during the

installation of the pipeline.

The city council received 44

submissions in response to the

consultation, five opposed the

project and there was no mention

of Scruttons Rd.

Instead, Mr Foxton-

McCulloch said he found out

about the work which was going

to be done when he saw people

In an email to the city council,

Mr Foxton-McCulloch said “the

Mr Foxton-McCulloch and Ms

Foxton have had to temporarily

Eyesore could soon be demolished

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A LONG-TERM eyesore

in Sockburn could soon be

demolished.

The city council is undertaking

asbestos surveys at the old

Sockburn Service Centre to determine

the extent of the asbestos

removal required to allow for the

demolition to go ahead.

City council’s

head of facilities, property and

planning Bruce Rendall said a

final date for the service centre

will not be known until the

extent of the asbestos removal is

known.

The former service centre,

on Main South Rd, has been a

source of tension for years with

residents unhappy with the state

of the site.

It was closed in 2012 due to

earthquake damage and has been

vacant ever since.

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association chairman Marc

Duff said it is encouraging

to hear the city council is making

progress by looking at the

asbestos.

He said it is understandable

the city council wants to undertake

asbestos testing to make

sure the building has a safe

demolition.

It comes as the city council

demolished the old Sockburn

VTNZ building and storage shed

last month.

Mr Duff said it was really

positive the city council had

made progress in bringing the

old Sockburn VTNZ building

down.

Currently, the service centre is

covered in graffiti, the windows

are smashed and others are

boarded up.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora said he is hoping the

building can come down as soon

as possible.

A year ago, a report went to the

board recommending the city

council retain the land, but not

the building.

Mr Rendall said there have

been no changes since then and

the land will be used for water

supply and recreation.

UN youth trip for Villa Maria head girl

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ONE OF the biggest messages

Villa Maria College’s head girl

Eadaoin Roughan tries to pass

onto her fellow students is to

“give everything a try”.

“Giving it a go won’t hurt

anyone, you can only grow and

learn from it,” she said.

So while Eadaoin, 17, didn’t

know a lot about the United

Nations Youth New Zealand’s

Global Development Tour 2020,

she decided to take her own

advice by applying for the trip.

She is now one of 22 students

from across the country selected

for a month-long tour of Europe

and New York to learn about the

UN’s Sustainable Development

Goals in action.

Eadaoin has been chosen

alongside Lincoln High School’s

Maria Mendoza Nieto and

Sujean In of St Margaret’s

College.

The tour, which begins in

January, will see the delegation

travel to London, Rome, Vienna,

Berlin and Paris.

The Sustainable Development

Goals are the UN’s blueprint

addressing global challenges

including poverty, inequality,

climate, environmental

degradation and justice.

On the tour, the delegation

will meet with policy-makers,

non-profit organisations and

other institutions critical in

the formation of achieving the

goals.

Eadaoin said she was happy,

excited and overwhelmed when

she found out she was chosen.

“Just the thought of being

able to go across the world to see

how countries work with

the Sustainable Development

Goals was mind-blowing,” she

said.

Eadaoin said she is most

looking forward to attending

the Columbia Model United

Nations Conference and

Exposition in New York – one of

the leading UN conferences in

the high school circuit.

Eadaoin said she decided to

apply after a friend of hers asked

her to go to a talk on the tour.

“Although there were

only seven days left be the

registration closed, I thought

why not try, I’m not going to

lose anything major if I try, I

could gain so much,” she said.

Having a passion for serving

her community, Eadaoin helps

feed the homeless on a Sunday

at the Oxford Terrace Baptist

Church.

She said the thing she loves

most about being head girl

is listening to other student’s

stories or concerns to see how

she can help them.

“Even if it is small, I love how

they can approach me and tell

me anything”.

Next year, Eadaoin plans

to study at biochemistry at

university, but this could change

when she returns from the tour.

BRIGHT FUTURE: Villa Maria

College head girl Eadaoin

Roughan has been selected

to take part in the United

Nations Youth New Zealand’s

Global Development Tour

2020 next year.

NEW HOME: Wainoni Avonside Community Services Trust

co-ordinator Betty Chapman outside the trust’s new home

behind the Burwood Christian Centre.

New home found for

community group

• By Matt Slaughter

THE WAINONI Avonside

Community Services Trust has

found its new home.

The trust will move from its

old headquarters at Wainoni

Methodist Church on Avonside

Drive to the second floor of a

newly constructed, two-storey

building behind the Burwood

Christian Centre at 52 Bassett St.

Trust co-ordinator Betty

Chapman said it hoped to move

in by the end of August, but this

would happen after a lift was

installed to help members who

struggled with stairs.

Mrs Chapman said she had

been searching for a new site for

the trust for more than a year.

Earlier this year, Land Information

New Zealand decided

the earthquake-damaged, leaky

Wainoni Methodist Church site

was unsafe to work in.

It was originally thought the

trust would move into All Saints

Anglican Church in Burwood,

but Mrs Chapman said the rent

would have been too expensive.

“They put the rent up to $300,

plus power, plus phone. We

couldn’t afford that.”

The rent at its new site will cost

the same as it did at Wainoni

Methodist Church, $200 a week.

In spite of securing a new site

meaning the trust’s future was

safe, Mrs Chapman said moving

would be hard on the about 200

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

Cycleway plan

changes after

consultation

SIGNIFICANT CHANGES have

been made to the South Express

Major Cycle Route after the city

council received more than 600

submissions on the proposal.

City council staff are recommending

amendments based on

public feedback, including providing

more car-parking, connecting

with the Selwyn District

Council’s planned shared path

and introducing a slow speed

zone along Matipo St.

City council transport planning

and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis said: “We received

a lot of detailed feedback on the

route and have made a lot of

changes to address the concerns

and opportunities raised by the

community”.

Of the 642 public submissions

received, 49 per cent of submitters

supported the cycleway, 23

per cent supported it but had

specific feedback which needed

further consideration, and 23 per

cent opposed the cycleway.

Hearings for the cycleway were

scheduled to begin yesterday.

Alternative designs are

proposed on Elizabeth St, Lochee

Rd, Craven St, Taggart Pl and on

bus stops around the intersection

of Buchanans Rd and Hei Hei

Rd.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

National tournament for Cashmere students

• By Jacob Page

CASHMERE HIGH School

hockey player, Matthew Fairhall

continues to prove he is a talent

for the future by being the only

year 9 player named in the

Canterbury under-15 team for

their national tournament in

September.

The 14-year-old will head to

Whangarei after making the

team following five weeks of

trials.

“I really hoped I would make

it, but knew I was pretty young

at the same time, but when I

found out I had made it, it really

felt like I’d achieved something,”

he said.

Matthew had made the year

7 and 8 Canterbury Hatch

Cup team in previous years,

alongside Cashmere teammate

Hamish Sherratt making the

Canterbury B team which will

travel to Wanganui at the same

time.

Matthew, who plays centre

half said he felt he was suited to

the position.

“I try be a very determined

player on the turf, I’ve been told

I’m a good dispatcher of the ball

and that I can use my vision to

free up other players around

me.”

Matthew said he first

remembers playing the sport

in a six-a-side team at the old

Rangi Ruru Turf as a six-yearold.

SPORT

“It’s great because I still play

with some of my mates from

that far back in year 2,” he said.

He said his aim at the

tournament would be to do his

main role well while limiting

mistakes.

“Overall, I want to enjoy the

experience and improve my

game as much as I can.”

Cashmere coach Chez Parore

said both players deserved the

recognition.

Matthew is a very dedicated

player and Hamish has

persevered and shown what he

is capable of,” he said.

TALENT: Cashmere High

School hockey players

Hamish Sherratt and

Matthew Fairhall will

represent Canterbury at

age-group level at national

tournaments in September.

Technical

girls team

beaten in

penalty

shootout

THE CASHMERE Technical

Blue 12 grade girls team

finished second at the Alan

Fraser Memorial tournament

at Kaiapoi’s Kendall Park.

The two-day tournament

hosted by the Waimakiriri

Football Club is an annual

fixture and draws teams from

as far north as Nelson and as

far south as Dunedin.

The team were runners-up

to Dunedin’s Green Island.

The team cruised through

pool play with a 7-0 win over

Waimakiriri United, a 6-0 win

over Parklands and a 6-0 win

over Waitaki.

They were able to overcome

FC Nelson in their semi-final

however, the final with Green

Island, went to a penalty shoot

out.

After an entertaining

and even final, Cashmere

Technical’s Savannah Olsen

was named the golden boot

winner for the tournament

while Caitlin Oregan was

named the team’s most

valuable player.

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.

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.

Building Standard, this development

offers an extraordinary lifestyle in a

setting second-to-none. Right alongside

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.
