Residents frustrated<br />

over pipeline ‘torture’<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

HEATHCOTE Valley residents<br />

have described a multi-million<br />

dollar wastewater project being<br />

undertaken outside their property<br />

as “torture”.<br />

THe city council is now dealing<br />

with residents at three properties<br />

who have been affected by phase<br />

four of its Lyttelton Harbour<br />

wastewater scheme.<br />

Creag Foxton-McCulloch and<br />

Victoria Foxton have endured<br />

almost two-and-a-half months<br />

of constant noise, dust, potholes,<br />

muddy roads and groundshaking,<br />

which they likened to<br />

an earthquake. The couple were<br />

never told they would have to<br />

put up with these issues outside<br />

their Scruttons Rd home while<br />

contractors Fulton Hogan work to<br />

install a pipeline at a cost of $8.3m.<br />

The job still has at least another six<br />

months to go.<br />

City council services general<br />

manager David Adamson said<br />

the project was consulted on as a<br />

whole in 2015 instead of on a stageby-stage<br />

basis. He said the public<br />

was invited to give feedback on<br />

two options to connect Lyttelton<br />

Harbour communities’ wastewater<br />

to the Lyttelton Rd tunnel in 2015.<br />

YOU HAVE to sympathise with Heathcote<br />

Valley residents currently enduring the<br />

noise, vibrations and shaking that goes<br />

with a major infrastructure project (see<br />

page 1).<br />

Creag Foxton-McCulloch and Victoria<br />

Foxton have gone public in <strong>Southern</strong> <strong>View</strong> to air their<br />

frustrations over the Heathcote Valley part of the $53 million<br />

Lyttelton pipeline.<br />

The city council consulted with the public back in 2015 over<br />

what lay ahead. But Creag and Victoria say they weren’t aware<br />

what was going to happen in their part of the valley until work<br />

started a few months ago.<br />

The couple, and others, will unfortunately have to endure it for<br />

another several months. Fulton Hogan, the company contracted<br />

to do the work, isn’t responding to our questions.<br />

No surprises there.<br />

No progress finding MDF solution at Owaka site<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

ONGOING: A resource consent has been lodged to mix the<br />

MDF at the Owaka site in with soil. Owaka Holdings director<br />

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

THE ONGOING saga to get<br />

medium density fibre removed<br />

from the contentious Owaka site<br />

is in limbo.<br />

Owaka Holdings Ltd lodged a<br />

resource consent application to<br />

combine about 6800m of MDF<br />

with a similar amount of soil<br />

to form a bund at its site on 59<br />

Owaka Rd.<br />

The bund is proposed to be<br />

covered with topsoil and planted<br />

with vegetation and grass.<br />

If approved, the MDF would<br />

no longer need to be removed<br />

from the site.<br />

The site has been a contentious<br />

issue for years and came to a<br />

head when the MDF spontaneously<br />

caught alight spreading<br />

thick smoke and taking weeks to<br />

contain.<br />

The city council issued Owaka<br />

Holdings an abatement notice in<br />

April 2015, which said all MDF<br />

had to be removed by April 2016.<br />

The city council did not reimpose<br />

it after it lapsed because it<br />

started a compliance investigation.<br />

In April last year, the city<br />

council threatened Environment<br />

Court action over Owaka Holdings<br />

Ltd failing to comply with<br />

removing the MDF.<br />

City council head of regulatory<br />

compliance Tracey Weston told<br />

<strong>Southern</strong> <strong>View</strong> this week enforcement<br />

action is on hold pending<br />

the outcome of the application.<br />

The resource consent was<br />

lodged on November 27 and city<br />

council staff is currently waiting<br />

on more information before<br />

proceeding the application.<br />

It is waiting for further information<br />

relating to stormwater,<br />

transmission lines, contamination<br />

and approval from Orion,<br />

which is adjacent to the site.<br />

Ms Weston said the last<br />

notification the city council<br />

received regarding the MDF<br />

being removed was between the<br />

period of January-May, 2017.<br />

So far, 539.49 tonnes have been<br />

removed.<br />

In April last year, a city<br />

council investigation found the<br />

stockpiles of MDF were not permitted<br />

by the District Plan and<br />

not authorised by a resource<br />

consent. MDF is an engineered<br />

wood product made by breaking<br />

down hardwood or softwood<br />

residuals.<br />

Owaka Holdings director<br />

Alan Edge said he thinks the<br />

proposal is a safer option.<br />

When asked by <strong>Southern</strong> <strong>View</strong><br />

if the proposal would save the<br />

company the expense of removing<br />

the MDF from the site, Mr<br />

Edge said “not really.”<br />

“The amount of money the<br />

consultants and scientists have<br />

done on the MDF has not been<br />

cheap,” he said.<br />

The Owaka site has been<br />

a contentious issue with the<br />

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board for years.<br />

But city councillor Jimmy<br />

Chen, board chairman Mike<br />

Mora and deputy chairwoman<br />

Helen Broughton were unaware<br />

the resource consent had been<br />

lodged.<br />

Mrs Broughton said she only<br />

found out because she kept asking<br />

council staff for updates on<br />

the removal of the MDF.<br />

“We were promised a briefing<br />

every two months and we<br />

haven’t had any briefings . . . I<br />

got told there was no need for a<br />

briefing because it was no longer<br />

an issue of the MDF being taken<br />

away.”<br />

Mrs Broughton said she was<br />

concerned because she thought<br />

the MDF was being taken away<br />

and it is not.<br />

Cr Chen said he has not seen<br />

a copy of the resource consent<br />

but is trusting city council<br />

planners will follow the process<br />

to determine the safety of the<br />

proposal. An assessment of<br />

environmental effects found<br />

the proposal had considerable<br />

positive effects in providing an<br />

on-site solution to the MDF<br />

material.<br />

Orion, which is adjacent to<br />

the site, was consulted on the<br />

proposal. Its works delivery<br />

manager Anthony O’Donnell<br />

said Orion was concerned<br />

about stormwater run-off<br />

entering their property. Orion<br />

is in ongoing discussions about<br />

matters raised in the proposed<br />

plans.<br />

No objections to ownership<br />

change at Henry’s Hornby<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

NO OBJECTIONS have been<br />

lodged against a liquor store<br />

application which is located in<br />

the same complex as a Work and<br />

Income office in Hornby.<br />

Skudar Ltd lodged<br />

the new application for<br />

the current off-licence<br />

Henrys Hornby on 21<br />

Shands Rd. The new<br />

application is sought<br />

due to a change of<br />

ownership at the site.<br />

The store is currently<br />

operating under<br />

Imperial Discount<br />

Liquor Ltd.<br />

If approved, it would operate<br />

Monday-Sunday, 8am-10pm,<br />

under the name of Henry’s BWS<br />

Hornby.<br />

The application received<br />

mixed views at the Greater<br />

Hornby Residents’ Association<br />

meeting recently due to the store<br />

being located a few doors down<br />

from Work and Income.<br />

Chairman Marc Duff said he<br />

hadn’t heard of any problems<br />

as a result of the store’s location<br />

before, and it “doesn’t really<br />

stick out that it is there.”<br />

“I think if it was a new liquor<br />

store you would see a stronger<br />

community feeling . . . I think I<br />

Marc Duff<br />

Loss of income and damage concern to property<br />

•From page 1<br />

However, regardless of outcome,<br />

the plan to lay a pipeline through<br />

Heathcote and Woolston would<br />

have remained the same.<br />

“We’re addressing each<br />

complaint individually and<br />

working with our contractor<br />

to find a solution for residents.<br />

Complaints are followed up with<br />

emails or phone calls from the<br />

project manager and face-to-face<br />

engagement with the contractor,”<br />

Mr Adamson said.<br />

Mr Foxton-McCulloch, who is<br />

the ex-chairman of the Heathcote<br />

Valley Community Association,<br />

was not aware of the consultation<br />

or the drop-in session in 2015.<br />

would have a stronger<br />

view if it wasn’t a renewal<br />

but it is a renewal so it is a bit<br />

different.”<br />

Member Mark Peters said the<br />

close proximity of the store to<br />

the Work and Income office,<br />

operated by the Ministry<br />

of Social Development,<br />

was “unfortunate.”<br />

“It is a one-stop shop.<br />

You go in and get your<br />

benefit and then you<br />

wander into a liquor<br />

store. That is not really an<br />

ideal situation,” he said.<br />

But he said he<br />

decided not to make an<br />

objection.<br />

This is because when a new<br />

licence application is made<br />

due to a change of ownership,<br />

the suitability of the licensee<br />

is the only ground in what an<br />

objection can be made.<br />

Mr Peters said he is in two<br />

minds because Henry’s is<br />

operated by Foodstuffs South<br />

Island Ltd – and is probably one<br />

of the better liquor stores.<br />

But a location such as<br />

The Hub Hornby may have been<br />

more appropriate, he said.<br />

MSD regional commissioner<br />

Shane Carter would not<br />

comment on the application.<br />

The only mention of Scruttons<br />

Rd in the consultation document<br />

was to say that the pipeline would<br />

be installed there, as well as in<br />

Godley, Simeon, Norwich and<br />

Gladstone Quays and Port Hills,<br />

and Ferry Rds. It did not mention<br />

anything about disruption to<br />

nearby properties during the<br />

installation of the pipeline.<br />

The city council received 44<br />

submissions in response to the<br />

consultation, five opposed the<br />

project and there was no mention<br />

of Scruttons Rd.<br />

Instead, Mr Foxton-<br />

McCulloch said he found out<br />

about the work which was going<br />

to be done when he saw people<br />

Mr Foxton-McCulloch and Ms<br />

to replace the old Scruttons Rd<br />

“To have a Bailey bridge<br />

brought up from Timaru to<br />

be thrown over the old bridge<br />

the bridge is supposedly due to be<br />

Eyesore could soon be demolished<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

A LONG-TERM eyesore<br />

in Sockburn could soon be<br />

demolished.<br />

The city council is undertaking<br />

asbestos surveys at the old<br />

Sockburn Service Centre to determine<br />

the extent of the asbestos<br />

removal required to allow for the<br />

demolition to go ahead.<br />

City council’s<br />

head of facilities, property and<br />

planning Bruce Rendall said a<br />

final date for the service centre<br />

will not be known until the<br />

extent of the asbestos removal is<br />

known.<br />

The former service centre,<br />

on Main South Rd, has been a<br />

source of tension for years with<br />

residents unhappy with the state<br />

of the site.<br />

It was closed in 2012 due to<br />

earthquake damage and has been<br />

vacant ever since.<br />

Greater Hornby Residents’<br />

Association chairman Marc<br />

Duff said it is encouraging<br />

to hear the city council is making<br />

progress by looking at the<br />

asbestos.<br />

He said it is understandable<br />

the city council wants to undertake<br />

asbestos testing to make<br />

sure the building has a safe<br />

demolition.<br />

It comes as the city council<br />

demolished the old Sockburn<br />

VTNZ building and storage shed<br />

last month.<br />

Mr Duff said it was really<br />

positive the city council had<br />

made progress in bringing the<br />

old Sockburn VTNZ building<br />

down.<br />

Currently, the service centre is<br />

covered in graffiti, the windows<br />

are smashed and others are<br />

boarded up.<br />

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board chairman<br />

Mike Mora said he is hoping the<br />

building can come down as soon<br />

as possible.<br />

A year ago, a report went to the<br />

board recommending the city<br />

council retain the land, but not<br />

the building.<br />

Mr Rendall said there have<br />

been no changes since then and<br />

the land will be used for water<br />

supply and recreation.<br />

UN youth trip for Villa Maria head girl<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

ONE OF the biggest messages<br />

Villa Maria College’s head girl<br />

Eadaoin Roughan tries to pass<br />

onto her fellow students is to<br />

“give everything a try”.<br />

“Giving it a go won’t hurt<br />

anyone, you can only grow and<br />

learn from it,” she said.<br />

So while Eadaoin, 17, didn’t<br />

know a lot about the United<br />

Nations Youth New Zealand’s<br />

Global Development Tour 2020,<br />

she decided to take her own<br />

advice by applying for the trip.<br />

She is now one of 22 students<br />

from across the country selected<br />

for a month-long tour of Europe<br />

and New York to learn about the<br />

UN’s Sustainable Development<br />

Goals in action.<br />

Eadaoin has been chosen<br />

alongside Lincoln High School’s<br />

Maria Mendoza Nieto and<br />

Sujean In of St Margaret’s<br />

College.<br />

The tour, which begins in<br />

January, will see the delegation<br />

travel to London, Rome, Vienna,<br />

Berlin and Paris.<br />

The Sustainable Development<br />

Goals are the UN’s blueprint<br />

addressing global challenges<br />

including poverty, inequality,<br />

climate, environmental<br />

degradation and justice.<br />

On the tour, the delegation<br />

will meet with policy-makers,<br />

non-profit organisations and<br />

other institutions critical in<br />

the formation of achieving the<br />

goals.<br />

Eadaoin said she was happy,<br />

excited and overwhelmed when<br />

she found out she was chosen.<br />

“Just the thought of being<br />

able to go across the world to see<br />

how countries work with<br />

the Sustainable Development<br />

Goals was mind-blowing,” she<br />

said.<br />

Eadaoin said she is most<br />

looking forward to attending<br />

the Columbia Model United<br />

Nations Conference and<br />

Exposition in New York – one of<br />

the leading UN conferences in<br />

the high school circuit.<br />

Eadaoin said she decided to<br />

apply after a friend of hers asked<br />

her to go to a talk on the tour.<br />

“Although there were<br />

only seven days left be the<br />

registration closed, I thought<br />

why not try, I’m not going to<br />

lose anything major if I try, I<br />

could gain so much,” she said.<br />

Having a passion for serving<br />

her community, Eadaoin helps<br />

feed the homeless on a Sunday<br />

at the Oxford Terrace Baptist<br />

Church.<br />

She said the thing she loves<br />

most about being head girl<br />

is listening to other student’s<br />

stories or concerns to see how<br />

she can help them.<br />

“Even if it is small, I love how<br />

they can approach me and tell<br />

me anything”.<br />

Next year, Eadaoin plans<br />

to study at biochemistry at<br />

university, but this could change<br />

when she returns from the tour.<br />

NEW HOME: Wainoni Avonside Community Services Trust<br />

co-ordinator Betty Chapman outside the trust’s new home<br />

behind the Burwood Christian Centre.<br />

New home found for<br />

community group<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

THE WAINONI Avonside<br />

Community Services Trust has<br />

found its new home.<br />

The trust will move from its<br />

old headquarters at Wainoni<br />

Methodist Church on Avonside<br />

Drive to the second floor of a<br />

newly constructed, two-storey<br />

building behind the Burwood<br />

Christian Centre at 52 Bassett St.<br />

Trust co-ordinator Betty<br />

Chapman said it hoped to move<br />

in by the end of August, but this<br />

would happen after a lift was<br />

installed to help members who<br />

struggled with stairs.<br />

Mrs Chapman said she had<br />

been searching for a new site for<br />

the trust for more than a year.<br />

Earlier this year, Land Information<br />

New Zealand decided<br />

the earthquake-damaged, leaky<br />

Wainoni Methodist Church site<br />

was unsafe to work in.<br />

It was originally thought the<br />

trust would move into All Saints<br />

Anglican Church in Burwood,<br />

but Mrs Chapman said the rent<br />

would have been too expensive.<br />

“They put the rent up to $300,<br />

plus power, plus phone. We<br />

couldn’t afford that.”<br />

The rent at its new site will cost<br />

the same as it did at Wainoni<br />

Methodist Church, $200 a week.<br />

In spite of securing a new site<br />

meaning the trust’s future was<br />

safe, Mrs Chapman said moving<br />

would be hard on the about 200<br />

people who used its services and<br />

attended its events.<br />

The trust’s new headquarters is<br />

only a short distance from its old<br />

one, but she still expected the<br />

move would result in the loss of<br />

some members.<br />

“It is hard because the elderly<br />

don’t like change . . . they don’t<br />

want to shift.<br />

“It’s hard on elderly to move.”<br />

The trust has been operating<br />

out of Wainoni Methodist<br />

Church for more than 17 years<br />

and Mrs Chapman said some<br />

were struggling with the idea of<br />

leaving.<br />

However, a visit to the new site<br />

on Wednesday had seen reluctant<br />

members change their tune.<br />

“Everyone’s finding it hard.<br />

“But, yesterday after the walk<br />

through, I got a lot of positive<br />

vibes, so I’m quite relieved.”<br />

She said, ultimately, it would<br />

be great to be in a building that<br />

didn’t leak.<br />

Wainoni Methodist Church<br />

will be demolished once the<br />

trust moves.<br />

Cycleway plan<br />

changes after<br />

consultation<br />

SIGNIFICANT CHANGES have<br />

been made to the South Express<br />

Major Cycle Route after the city<br />

council received more than 600<br />

submissions on the proposal.<br />

City council staff are recommending<br />

amendments based on<br />

public feedback, including providing<br />

more car-parking, connecting<br />

with the Selwyn District<br />

Council’s planned shared path<br />

and introducing a slow speed<br />

zone along Matipo St.<br />

City council transport planning<br />

and delivery manager<br />

Lynette Ellis said: “We received<br />

a lot of detailed feedback on the<br />

route and have made a lot of<br />

changes to address the concerns<br />

and opportunities raised by the<br />

community”.<br />

Of the 642 public submissions<br />

received, 49 per cent of submitters<br />

supported the cycleway, <strong>23</strong><br />

per cent supported it but had<br />

specific feedback which needed<br />

further consideration, and <strong>23</strong> per<br />

cent opposed the cycleway.<br />

Hearings for the cycleway were<br />

scheduled to begin yesterday.<br />

Alternative designs are<br />

proposed on Elizabeth St, Lochee<br />

Rd, Craven St, Taggart Pl and on<br />

bus stops around the intersection<br />

of Buchanans Rd and Hei Hei<br />

Rd.<br />

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

Workingmen’s club rebuild continues<br />

• By Claire Booker<br />

WORK ON the final stage of<br />

the $12.9 million rebuild of the<br />

earthquake-damaged Richmond<br />

Working Men’s Club has started.<br />

Club president Chris Taylor<br />

broke the ground with a ceremonial<br />

spade last week before<br />

construction workers moved in<br />

to start the project.<br />

Work will be finished in <strong>July</strong><br />

next year.<br />

The final stage of the construction<br />

will be a new function venue<br />

that will accommodate weddings,<br />

corporate dinners, show<br />

events and other functions.<br />

The completed complex<br />

will have three high-grade<br />

squash courts, a new restaurant<br />

and bistro, a TAB terminal and<br />

game room, and plenty of parking.<br />

The first part of the rebuild is<br />

finished, so the club is open for<br />

meetings and events.<br />

Mr Taylor has been the president<br />

of the club for the last three<br />

years and has been a member of<br />

the committee for 17 years.<br />

“It’s been a long road, but we’re<br />

finally under way,” he said.<br />

Cook Brothers Construction<br />

won the bid for the construction<br />

of the project after going through<br />

the robust tender process which<br />

was run by the club.<br />

The design of the new<br />

clubroom was decided by way<br />

of input and discussions which<br />

involved all club members as well<br />

The Richmond club, which has<br />

been around for more than 100<br />

years, is one of the oldest clubs<br />

in New Zealand and it is hoped<br />

that the new design will blow its<br />

members away.<br />

The plan for the club is to<br />

secure its future with strong<br />

strategies around its food and<br />

beverage offerings, with a<br />

focus on the local community<br />

HEALTH & AWARENESS<br />

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or<br />

could it be mainly my muscles?<br />

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with<br />

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and<br />

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.<br />

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests<br />

that a major part of the pain could be due<br />

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.<br />

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason<br />

for the pain may be the muscles around<br />

the joint,” she explains. The images show<br />

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back<br />

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain<br />

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot<br />

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder<br />

blade can give a deep pain in the front of<br />

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way<br />

near the groin can give an ache in the knee<br />

(especially at night in bed).<br />

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year<br />

old client with severe arthritis who walked<br />

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in<br />

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight<br />

through my right leg due to pain in my hip<br />

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she<br />

was walking with her stick but without the<br />

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was<br />

one of the factors that made her muscles<br />

spasm but the other was that older people<br />

move less and the flexed position the hip<br />

is in when we sit is particularly bad for<br />

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that<br />

although the client was 89 and could have<br />

been “given up on” or told to live with the<br />

pain, she made a difference to her health<br />

and wellbeing.<br />

The same lack of movement can be the<br />

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder<br />

pain and the same few treatments could<br />

make a huge difference for you.<br />

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques<br />

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation<br />

techniques) are used to release the muscles.<br />

The client also gets a home exercise<br />

program designed to mobilize and stretch<br />

the joint, strengthen the important core<br />

muscles and increase general strength and<br />

SHOULDER<br />

PAIN<br />

KNEE PAIN<br />

balance. They teach a movement sequence<br />

that stretches the joint in all directions<br />

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their<br />

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.<br />

In many cases having the muscles<br />

released and being taught how to maintain<br />

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.<br />

HIP PAIN<br />

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)<br />

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,<br />

some maintenance therapy may be<br />

necessary, but that is often more affordable<br />

and, for older patients, better tolerated than<br />

surgery. In very few treatments the client<br />

will know if it is going to work for them or<br />

not, without financial commitment.<br />

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<br />

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

Teens show circus skills<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

TEENAGE CIRCUS performers<br />

have wowed crowds.<br />

The Christchurch Circus Trust<br />

put on three performances of<br />

Circus Berserkus at Roy Stokes<br />

Hall in New Brighton, with 14<br />

performers showing off their<br />

skills.<br />

Producer Chris Carrow<br />

said the performers rehearsed<br />

for about four months to put<br />

the show together and were<br />

supported by two backstage<br />

crew members during the<br />

shows.<br />

He said a range of talents were<br />

showcased and enjoyed by about<br />

500 audience members over<br />

three nights.<br />

The shows included aerial<br />

acrobatics, balancing acts,<br />

contortion, juggling and<br />

clowning.<br />

Said Mr Carrow: “We had<br />

some people say, you’re better<br />

than Cirque du Soleil.”<br />

“Sometimes, you would say<br />

well, a local circus, it’s just going<br />

to be something high schoolish,<br />

but we surpass that.”<br />

Mr Carrow said those<br />

involved in Circus Berserkus<br />

had done more than just improve<br />

their skills as performers by<br />

taking part.<br />

“Because most of them have<br />

been together for a while, there’s<br />

a bit of a family sort of feel<br />

around the troop.<br />

“They’re really supportive<br />

of each other and because of<br />

that the performance comes<br />

together as this really joyful<br />

experience.”<br />

Most of the performers have<br />

been involved with the trust<br />

for three to four years and have<br />

performed in other shows.<br />

Mr Carrow said in spite of the<br />

difficult skills they demonstrated,<br />

most people could learn to do<br />

them with practice.<br />

National tournament for Cashmere students<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

CASHMERE HIGH School<br />

hockey player, Matthew Fairhall<br />

continues to prove he is a talent<br />

for the future by being the only<br />

year 9 player named in the<br />

Canterbury under-15 team for<br />

their national tournament in<br />

September.<br />

The 14-year-old will head to<br />

Whangarei after making the<br />

team following five weeks of<br />

trials.<br />

“I really hoped I would make<br />

it, but knew I was pretty young<br />

at the same time, but when I<br />

found out I had made it, it really<br />

felt like I’d achieved something,”<br />

he said.<br />

Matthew had made the year<br />

7 and 8 Canterbury Hatch<br />

Cup team in previous years,<br />

alongside Cashmere teammate<br />

Hamish Sherratt making the<br />

Canterbury B team which will<br />

travel to Wanganui at the same<br />

time.<br />

Matthew, who plays centre<br />

half said he felt he was suited to<br />

the position.<br />

“I try be a very determined<br />

player on the turf, I’ve been told<br />

I’m a good dispatcher of the ball<br />

and that I can use my vision to<br />

free up other players around<br />

me.”<br />

Matthew said he first<br />

remembers playing the sport<br />

in a six-a-side team at the old<br />

Rangi Ruru Turf as a six-yearold.<br />

SPORT<br />

“It’s great because I still play<br />

with some of my mates from<br />

that far back in year 2,” he said.<br />

He said his aim at the<br />

tournament would be to do his<br />

main role well while limiting<br />

mistakes.<br />

“Overall, I want to enjoy the<br />

experience and improve my<br />

game as much as I can.”<br />

Cashmere coach Chez Parore<br />

said both players deserved the<br />

recognition.<br />

Matthew is a very dedicated<br />

player and Hamish has<br />

persevered and shown what he<br />

is capable of,” he said.<br />

TALENT: Cashmere High<br />

School hockey players<br />

Hamish Sherratt and<br />

Matthew Fairhall will<br />

represent Canterbury at<br />

age-group level at national<br />

tournaments in September.<br />

Technical<br />

girls team<br />

beaten in<br />

penalty<br />

shootout<br />

THE CASHMERE Technical<br />

Blue 12 grade girls team<br />

finished second at the Alan<br />

Fraser Memorial tournament<br />

at Kaiapoi’s Kendall Park.<br />

The two-day tournament<br />

hosted by the Waimakiriri<br />

Football Club is an annual<br />

fixture and draws teams from<br />

as far north as Nelson and as<br />

far south as Dunedin.<br />

The team were runners-up<br />

to Dunedin’s Green Island.<br />

The team cruised through<br />

pool play with a 7-0 win over<br />

Waimakiriri United, a 6-0 win<br />

over Parklands and a 6-0 win<br />

over Waitaki.<br />

They were able to overcome<br />

FC Nelson in their semi-final<br />

however, the final with Green<br />

Island, went to a penalty shoot<br />

out.<br />

After an entertaining<br />

and even final, Cashmere<br />

Technical’s Savannah Olsen<br />

was named the golden boot<br />

winner for the tournament<br />

while Caitlin Oregan was<br />

named the team’s most<br />

valuable player.<br />

Many services provided for families<br />

through Plunket<br />

Garden maintenance is carried out<br />

by volunteers at Plunket clinics, but<br />

more are needed.<br />

For families with young children, getting help and support from people<br />

with knowledge and expertise can be a hugely beneficial, for both<br />

parents and children.<br />

The Royal New Zealand Plunket Trust offers a variety of services for children<br />

under five and their whanau, from Well Child appointments with one of their<br />

highly qualified and friendly Plunket Nurses through to Playgroups and<br />

Parenting Education classes.<br />

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

organisation, is only partially funded through a contract with the Ministry<br />

of Health. Other financial support comes from the generosity of grants<br />

and donations from the community and fund-raising activities.<br />

Plunket provides a number of Community Services, which rely on money<br />

from fundraising, grants and donations, with a dedicated team of staff and<br />

volunteers. While administered and led at a Canterbury Area level, these<br />

Community Services are run for and by the communities where they are<br />

based, responding directly to community need.<br />

Through Community Services, services for families are provided for free<br />

or at a minimal cost. They include:<br />

Helping out at a working bee at the<br />

Papanui Merivale Plunket grounds.<br />

• Parenting Education (PEPE)<br />

• Toddler groups such<br />

as ‘Toes and Giggles’<br />

• Coffee/Support/Parent Groups<br />

• Playgroups<br />

• Toy Libraries<br />

Can you help?<br />

Plunket is currently looking for volunteers to help support with some<br />

maintenance of their properties, such as mowing lawns, maintaining a<br />

garden, painting a fence or the odd handy-man job like fixing something<br />

to the wall.<br />

For example, there are two retired ladies that enjoy a catch-up while<br />

doing a bit of gardening at a local Plunket clinic, where staff say it is a<br />

‘win-win’ for both them and Plunket.<br />

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

Group that could help out, Plunket would be grateful if you would<br />

pass this on to them. For anyone who is interested or would like more<br />

information please phone or text Rebecca on 021 713 692.<br />

Like them on Facebook and keep up to date with what’s happening in<br />

a sleek and sophisticated workspace,<br />

with high-spec appliances including<br />

under-bench oven and ceramic cooktop.<br />

Two bedrooms share a stunning new<br />

bathroom, while a basement carpark<br />

and storage locker ensure the utmost<br />

practicality. Lift access and shared use of<br />

a beautifully landscaped garden elevate<br />

this property to an exceptional standard.<br />

Zoning for Elmwood School, Heaton<br />

Intermediate, Boys’ High and Girls’<br />

desirable blue-chip location. Don’t miss<br />
