bid to<br />

make good<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

WOOLSTON BOXING Club<br />

trainer Holly Sullivan is on<br />

the shortlist to mentor New<br />

Zealand’s best amateur fighters<br />

at the Olympics in Tokyo next<br />

year.<br />

The 32-year-old started<br />

boxing to stay fit when she<br />

was a Canterbury tennis<br />

representative and national<br />

football trialist 14 years ago and<br />

fell in love with the sport.<br />

Sullivan is the only woman<br />

in New Zealand who is an<br />

internationally qualified trainer,<br />

which means if Woolstonbased<br />

Olympic boxing<br />

prospects Tegan Clark or<br />

Trevor Swainson make the<br />

New Zealand team, she will be<br />

Tokyo-bound with them.<br />

“Both of them are on the<br />

Olympic prospects list and<br />

so if any of my boxers get in,<br />

because I’m a woman with<br />

the qualifications, they want<br />

a balance of male and female<br />

managers and chaperones<br />

there.”<br />

an angry response from Mrs<br />

Chapman.<br />

It was front page news in The<br />

Successful slant on popcorn<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

FOUR LINWOOD College<br />

students have made their mark<br />

in the popcorn business after<br />

being recognised in a regional<br />

enterprise competition.<br />

PopCoin was named the winner<br />

of the Canterbury Young<br />

Enterprise Product launch recently,<br />

which was sponsored by<br />

Ara Institute of Canterbury.<br />

The business, which creates<br />

freshly flavoured popcorn was<br />

founded by year 13 students –<br />

Riccarton’s Eileen Prasad and<br />

Arnie Ferreras, New Brighton’s<br />

Tara Blackmore and Redcliff’s<br />

Meghan Kerr.<br />

The idea was formed<br />

after the students took part<br />

in the national Young Enterprise<br />

scheme – a programme<br />

aimed to inspire young people<br />

to become involved in business.<br />

As part of the scheme, their<br />

challenge was to create a business<br />

idea. The students were<br />

debating between a salad bowl<br />

or popcorn.<br />

After undertaking research,<br />

the students found there was a<br />

demand for popcorn.<br />

The students receive full profit<br />

from the business and have<br />

made $<strong>10</strong>0 in the four months it<br />

has been running stalls for.<br />

They run stalls at ARA, New<br />

Brighton Seaside Market, The<br />

Riccarton Sunday Market and<br />

will be selling at Turanga on<br />

<strong>September</strong> 15.<br />

The flavours the students<br />

have created include savoury<br />

herb and cheese, salted caramel,<br />

chocolate popcorn and caramel<br />

banana.<br />

“We as a group have got a lot<br />

of interest in making food so<br />

we used our own knowledge<br />

and came up with the flavours,”<br />

Eileen said.<br />

Eileen, the mastermind behind<br />

the flavours, was last year’s<br />

winner of the National Secondary<br />

School Culinary Challenge.<br />

She is hoping to go into the<br />

hospitality industry either as a<br />

chef or management position<br />

or study business at Canterbury<br />

University.<br />

Each student plays an<br />

important role in the<br />

business with Arnie as the<br />

finance manager, Tara as the<br />

manager and Meghan as the<br />

production manager.<br />

Social studies teacher Richard<br />

Jolly said the product has been<br />

so well-crafted they have sold<br />

out every time they have gone<br />

to market. The quirky name for<br />

the business emerged after the<br />

students were joking around<br />

about the term “popcoin” which<br />

featured in a children’s cartoon<br />

called The Big Lez Show.<br />

In Brief<br />

FLOODING PROBLEM<br />

Concerns have been raised<br />

about flooding at the Fred Price<br />

Courts car park on Palmers Rd<br />

in New Brighton. The Coastal-<br />

Burwood Community Board<br />

has asked city council staff to<br />

investigate how the water level<br />

can be reduced in the housing<br />

complex car park.<br />

BIN MAY BE KEPT<br />

The North Beach Residents’<br />

Association has met with<br />

Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board members and city council<br />

staff to discuss keeping a<br />

rubbish bin at the North Beach<br />

car park. The association has<br />

previously raised concerns about<br />

the board’s request for all the<br />

rubbish bins there to be replaced<br />

by seagull-proof Big Belly Bins.<br />

NAME CHANGE<br />

The Northshore Residents’<br />

Association has changed its<br />

name to the Waimairi Beach<br />

Residents’ Association. The<br />

Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board was advised of this at a<br />

meeting last week.<br />

FLYING FOX<br />

City council staff have been<br />

asked to investigate replacing<br />

or repairing the flying fox<br />

at Thomson Park, New<br />

Brighton, so it can be made the<br />

appropriate height and width.<br />

Shirley-Intermediate-School<br />

Kia Ora, Talofa, Greetings. As a child I went to the<br />

local primary school, about 600m from home. I<br />

can still drive through that neighbourhood and<br />

name who lived in each house on the school route.<br />

Mrs Miller, at the corner dairy was an institution;<br />

Everyone knew her, and vice versa - or so it seemed.<br />

For many of us adults, the benefits of living locally,<br />

knowing and using local services, seem a thing<br />

of the past. In these internet-soaked, heavily<br />

consumerised, car-dominated times our children<br />

need relevance, community connections and a<br />

sense of belonging more than ever.<br />

As we seek to enable children to lead full and<br />

satisfying lives, we fuse academic learning, with<br />

real life application and plenty of opportunity<br />

for constructive interaction with peers and our<br />

community. Our curriculum is based on relevant<br />

learning for life through study topics such as<br />

Journeys,<br />

Financial<br />

Literacy,<br />

Sustainability,<br />

and Chemistry<br />

in Everyday Life.<br />

Relevance makes<br />

learning so much<br />

easier.<br />

We are looking forward to major building<br />

renovations at school. We are also very pleased that<br />

Banks Avenue School is being rebuilt on the old<br />

Shirley Boys High School site immediately adjacent<br />

to our school. Community connections.<br />

Feel free to make contact for a chat and look around<br />

the school.<br />

Taitu’uga Geoff Siave - Principal<br />

Flax Weaving<br />

Once a week for the past six weeks women from the<br />

Kahu Collective (Kathy, Lisa and Corabelle) have been<br />

visiting Shirley Intermediate School to help children<br />

in the bilingual class - Te Tahu Rua Reo - use the flax<br />

which grows on the school grounds to learn about<br />

working with harakeke (flax). The children have<br />

been involved in the lengthy process of preparing,<br />

cleaning, harvesting, stripping, sizing,softening, boiling<br />

and dyeing the harakeke (flax). The project aims to<br />

complete two woven circular whāriki or mats to be<br />

on display in the school hall. The class also engaged<br />

in making bracelets<br />

and headbands from<br />

harakeke. As part of a<br />

community partnership<br />

the Kahu Collective<br />

is currently based at<br />

Shirley Intermediate.<br />

This will provide further<br />

opportunities for pupils.<br />

Shirley District Music School<br />

SDMS has been operating from Shirley Intermediate<br />

for over thirty years, offering music tuition for primary<br />

school children in the wider Shirley area. Itinerant<br />

music teachers tutor the children after school - often at<br />

their own school, or at Shirley Intermediate - the home<br />

of SDMS. Many children have progressed to being<br />

accomplished musicians. Last week twenty musicians<br />

from the SDMS took part in the first competition held<br />

in many years. The children came from Shirley Primary<br />

School, Shirley Intermediate School, Banks Avenue<br />

School, Mairehau Primary School, Marshlands School,<br />

Waitākiri School, and St Francis of Assisi School - all<br />

part of the Shirley District Music School.<br />

Ōtākaro ARTS festival - Performing<br />

Arts, Visual crafts, Craft<br />

The Ōtākaro Kahui Ako - has organised an amazing<br />

week of arts activities for children across the seven<br />

member school and multiple early childhood centres.<br />

The activities run from Monday 16 <strong>September</strong> until<br />

Friday 20 <strong>September</strong> and include basketmaking,<br />

beeswax wraps, pottery, drawing, Intaglio printmaking<br />

and a circus workshop are some of the twenty five artrelated<br />

activities available for the children to choose<br />

from during the festival week. Shirley Intermediate is<br />

the venue for two events as is taking part in art, dance<br />

and performance activities.<br />

School trip to Dunedin<br />

A regular part of the Shirley Intermediate calendar has<br />

been the biennial trip to Dunedin during term four. The<br />

children enjoy a first taste of university life by staying<br />

at one of the university hostels - in their own rooms,<br />

fully catered. The host of learning activities during the<br />

trip south and while in Dunedin include visiting the<br />

albatross colony, Steam punk in Oamaru, Moeraki,<br />

Olveston House, hostel life. The camaraderie of shared<br />

experiences away from home is hard to beat.<br />

Swimming Pools<br />

The number of schools with swimming pools is<br />

continuously reducing. This makes the fact that SIS<br />

has two pools (a 15m and a 25m pool) all the more<br />

remarkable. High drowning statistics and the expense,<br />

inconvenience, and inadequacy of the alternative<br />

options for schools emphasise the values of our pools.<br />

At SIS children are able to practice swimming on most<br />

summer weekdays. Surrounding contributing schools<br />

are invited to use<br />

the 15m pool at their<br />

convenience, and<br />

many local families<br />

have opportunity<br />

to hire keys for the<br />

summer after Labour<br />

Weekend. The school<br />

was also the base for<br />

the St Albans Swim<br />

Club for several<br />

years after the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

Community Opportunity - from the<br />

Principal<br />

From time to time we make “suggestions” (some call<br />

them “appeals”!) about how people can help out at<br />

school. People actually enjoy helping out and it’s<br />

mutually beneficial because of the social and local<br />

interactions and the satisfaction of having played your<br />

part in making a positive difference. Here are the details:<br />

Colour the Playground -<br />

• Saturday 19 October (the first Saturday of Term Four)<br />

• 8.30am to midday-ish<br />

• Bring a fence brush or suitable roller or paint tray if<br />

you have them<br />

• A bbq lunch will be provided - all welcome<br />

• The back-up day is Saturday 26 October.<br />

This will be a great time to muck in and get to know<br />

your neighbours while making a positive difference to<br />

your local intermediate school.<br />

Building Progression at SIS<br />

For two years we have been declaring “rebuild<br />

coming”; good things take time!<br />

Those driving past our North Parade boundary will see<br />

that two prefabricated buildings have appeared there<br />

recently. Yes, these are the first physical sign of our<br />

new build.<br />

The design of the new school includes:<br />

• New classrooms facing Shirley Road - including a<br />

whare, “maker spaces”, food room, design area and,<br />

of course, teaching spaces<br />

• New administration and reception area accessed<br />

from Shirley Road<br />

• Creation of two-way<br />

vehicle access from<br />

Shirley Road<br />

• Removal of two rear<br />

classrooms and<br />

modernisation of all<br />

remaining classrooms<br />

• Retention of school hall<br />

and adjoining rooms

Park’s apology hard to accept<br />

•From page 1<br />

Mr Park has apologised for the<br />

no show and proposed he meet<br />

with the community on <strong>September</strong><br />

25.<br />

Mr Park told <strong>Pegasus</strong> <strong>Post</strong><br />

he withdrew due to a “critical,<br />

personal” meeting.<br />

Mr Park<br />

would not say<br />

what the meeting<br />

was for.<br />

Mrs Chapman<br />

said Mr<br />

Park’s apology<br />

was hard to<br />

accept given<br />

Darryll Park<br />

this.<br />

“He didn’t<br />

say what it [the meeting] was<br />

about, what the urgency was, so<br />

it would have been nice to know<br />

that, he hasn’t given us<br />

the subject matter of that<br />

meeting.”<br />

She said it would be up to<br />

the services trust’s members to<br />

decide if they wanted Mr Park to<br />

meet with them.<br />

Mr Park attended the Canterbury<br />

Employers’ Chamber of<br />

Commerce debate on Wednesday<br />

night.<br />

At the debate he questioned<br />

why the city council was spending<br />

millions on cycleways when<br />

roads in the east needed fixing,<br />

labelling it as “not bloody good<br />

enough.”<br />

However, his last-minute<br />

withdrawal from the services<br />

trust’s debate earlier in the day<br />

was described by organiser Betty<br />

Chapman as a “slap in the face”<br />

for people in the east wanting<br />

roading and other improvements<br />

after the earthquakes.<br />

Former mayor Garry Moore,<br />

who chaired the debate, also<br />

criticised the no show.<br />

In a Facebook post, Mr Park<br />

also criticised a Dalziel-led council<br />

for neglecting the east and<br />

failing to look after the basics.<br />

Said Mrs Chapman: “It’s a bit<br />

of a slap in the face because a lot<br />

of people were here today to see<br />

Darryll. Out in the east we know<br />

Lianne, she had been our MP<br />

for years, the people came to see<br />

Darryll to hear what he had to<br />

say.”<br />

Mr Moore questioned Mr<br />

Park’s commitment.<br />

“To me, that showed no commitment<br />

to being mayor because<br />

if you are running for mayor you<br />

have to go to every meeting,” he<br />

said.<br />

Mr Park’s absence put a real<br />

dampener on the debate, he said.<br />

Community<br />

Trust, chaired<br />

by Garry Moore.<br />

“Is he only prepared to talk to<br />

the business community and not<br />

the people of town?”<br />

Mr Park said the criticism he<br />

received for missing the debate<br />

was “unfair.”<br />

“I don’t think it’s fair at all.<br />

One instance where I couldn’t<br />

make a meeting and yet, I’ve<br />

committed to being out there in<br />

the east and have been out there<br />

on several occasions.<br />

“I can’t undo something that<br />

happened and was unavoidable<br />

and I had to be at the other<br />

meeting.”<br />

Said Star Media regional<br />

manager Steve McCaughan:<br />

“Starnews will be an essential<br />

source for Cantabrians to get<br />

is on Canterbury news, but we<br />

will also have news from across<br />

New Zealand, international news,<br />

sport, politics, motoring reviews,<br />

lifestyle and more.<br />

“Our point of difference is<br />

that we will be using our news<br />

teams from Kaikoura, Amberley,<br />

Rangiora, Christchurch and<br />

Ashburton to provide topical<br />

Renew Brighton<br />

gets $20k grant<br />

from council<br />

THE RENEW Brighton project<br />

has received a $20,000 boost to<br />

promote resilience in the area.<br />

The grant came from the city<br />

council-administered community<br />

resilience partnership fund,<br />

which was launched in 2017 by<br />

Mayor Lianne Dalziel.<br />

Renew Brighton’s aim is to<br />

connect community groups in the<br />

area and enable participation on<br />

issues that matter to residents.<br />

Other groups to benefit from the<br />

grants include:<br />

•The Barrier-Free New Zealand<br />

Trust, which has received $20,000<br />

to help implement the accessibility<br />

charter.<br />

•The Mt Pleasant Memorial<br />

Community Centre and Residents<br />

Association, which has been<br />

granted $48,880 so it can employ<br />

someone to help run new community<br />

activities.<br />

•The Papanui Youth<br />

Development Trust, which will<br />

receive $7000 each year for the<br />

next two years so it can set up<br />

a youth group for people with<br />

behavioural challenges.<br />

•The Parenting Place Charitable<br />

Trust, which has received $18,330<br />

for its ‘building awesome whānau’<br />

parenting courses.<br />

•And The Exchange<br />

Christchurch Trust, which has<br />

received $27,682.<br />

Training world-class boxers<br />

•From page 1<br />

“I’m currently a star one<br />

international licence coach and<br />

there’s a chance I’ll have to sit<br />

my star two beforehand.”<br />

The prospect of two of her<br />

boxers competing at the New<br />

Zealand trials in March will<br />

mean a different structure over<br />

the summer months.<br />

“I’ve told Tegan and Trev that<br />

they’ll box up until the end of<br />

November and then have the<br />

whole of December off.<br />

“They need a rest month and<br />

with the trials in February/<br />

March they’ll need a six-week,<br />

well-conditioned programme by<br />

that time.<br />

Sullivan said she started<br />

training at the Woolston Boxing<br />

Club gym once a week about<br />

the time she purchased her<br />

first house at the age of 18 on<br />

Mackworth St.<br />

“I started going once a week<br />

under Steve Henry . . . and I<br />

asked if I could fight and he<br />

said that I could start turning<br />

up more if I wanted that and I<br />

thought it was fair enough.”<br />

It wasn’t until she hurt her<br />

shoulder in a bout – which led to<br />

three surgeries and a nine-year<br />

absence from that ring – that<br />

Sullivan considered coaching.<br />

Over the past decade, she and<br />

a group of dedicated volunteers<br />

MENTOR: Holly Sullivan is the only woman in New Zealand to become an internationally<br />

qualified trainer.<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

have built the club’s numbers<br />

up to more than 60, including<br />

23 who are allowed to box<br />

competitively. In spite of her<br />

success, Sullivan said she is too<br />

busy looking forward to look<br />

back. “There’s so much going<br />

on right now and so much I’m<br />

looking forward to that I’m<br />

more excited about the future.<br />

Aranui performer teaching Pasifika heritage<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

WHEN ARANUI’S Talia-Rae<br />

Mavaega travels to primary<br />

schools nationally as a performer<br />

she often finds it “disappointing”<br />

to learn how little children know<br />

about Pasifika’s rich culture.<br />

Having toured nationally with<br />

Duffy Books in Homes, she has<br />

found some schoolchildren have<br />

never heard of Samoa or Tonga or<br />

where New Zealand is located in<br />

the Pacific.<br />

In a bid to educate children on<br />

Pasifika heritage, Mavaega is one<br />

of three performers from theatre<br />

company Y NOT travelling to<br />

schools across Canterbury to<br />

share some of Samoa, Tonga and<br />

New Zealand’s most well-known<br />

legends.<br />

Directed by Gregory Cooper,<br />

the theatre company has collaborated<br />

with The Court Theatre<br />

to present O Le Malaga Fa’a’Atua<br />

(The Journey of the Gods).<br />

A capella chorus bound for Sweet Adelines in New Orleans<br />

• By Claire Booker<br />

SINGERS IN the Christchurch<br />

City Chorus are packing their<br />

bags and warming up their<br />

voices for the Sweet Adelines<br />

World Championship in New<br />

Orleans.<br />

The group was founded in<br />

1985 and the women sing in a<br />

four-part harmony a capella<br />

style and have been national<br />

champions 11 times – but this<br />

time they are back representing<br />

the country on an international<br />

stage.<br />

The last time the group<br />

performed internationally was<br />

2016 in Las Vegas where they<br />

placed fifth and received the<br />

“most entertaining” award.<br />

The chorus is made up<br />

of 130 women from across<br />

Christchurch, with members also<br />

hailing from Nelson, Dunedin,<br />

Invercargill, Palmerston North,<br />

Auckland and Australia.<br />

Ellie Sutton, of Cashmere, is<br />

one of the chorus members and<br />

said she is fizzing in anticipation<br />

The multilingual production<br />

will be touring across Canterbury<br />

primary schools until Friday and<br />

will feature Jake Arona and Mana<br />

Tatafu, alongside Mavaega.<br />

When asked if education on<br />

the Pacific could<br />

be better, she said:<br />

“I think there is<br />

always room for<br />

improvement, I<br />

just think Pasifika<br />

culture isn’t<br />

implemented as<br />

much.”<br />

But Mavaega said:<br />

“The cool thing is<br />

most of the kids<br />

once they are given<br />

the opportunity to learn a new<br />

word or whatever they just jump<br />

on it which is awesome.”<br />

Based on a fusion of myths, the<br />

O Le Malaga Fa’a’Atua (The Journey<br />

of the Gods) follows the story<br />

of demigod Maui’s quest to prove<br />

himself worthy of becoming a<br />

ENTERTAINING: The Christchurch City Chorus will head to New Orleans for the Sweet Adelines<br />

World Championship this week.<br />

of her first international contest.<br />

“We and our families have<br />

willingly sacrificed so much to<br />

get the fabulous Christchurch<br />

City Chorus to this point. New<br />

Orleans is the pinnacle of the<br />

journey we have taken together<br />

over the last couple of years and I<br />

Talia-Rae Mavaega<br />

fully-fledged God.<br />

Mavaega, who is of Samoan<br />

heritage, will play the role of Sina<br />

based on the famous Polynesian<br />

myth Sina and the Eel, which<br />

explains the origins of the first<br />

coconut tree.<br />

But she said the<br />

message she is hoping<br />

children will walk away<br />

with is to make the<br />

right choices, be kind to<br />

others and be the best<br />

they can be.<br />

The message stems<br />

from when Maui (who<br />

is based on a demigod<br />

from Maori mythology)<br />

is faced with the decision<br />

to either gain for himself or<br />

help people forever.<br />

Mavaega said while the majority<br />

of schools it is travelling to<br />

may not have the population of<br />

Pacific students, it is “awesome” it<br />

can share with children who have<br />

not experienced the culture.<br />

can’t wait to show the rest of the<br />

SAI world what we can do,” she<br />

said.<br />

Papanui’s Nicky McCaughan<br />

is the group’s visual director,<br />

and she is in charge of the<br />

choreography and showmanship<br />

of the chorus.<br />

SPELL-BINDING: Talia-Rae Mavaega is in the new show O Le<br />

Malaga Fa’a’Atua (The Journey of the Gods), which is touring<br />

around Canterbury primary schools.<br />

The chorus will fly to New<br />

Orleans this week, and the<br />

competition will run from<br />

<strong>September</strong> 16 to 21.<br />

Redwood resident Sharyn<br />

Glassey is excited and feels<br />

“blessed” to be a part of the<br />

chorus.<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

“Never in my wildest dreams<br />

did I ever think I would be<br />

representing our beautiful<br />

country in an international<br />

competition,” she said.<br />

Musical director Virginia<br />

Humphrey-Taylor said the<br />

chorus is excited for the thrill of<br />

representing New Zealand on<br />

the international stage.<br />

“It has taken three solid years<br />

of learning and performing<br />

songs to reach this pinnacle time.<br />

The chorus’ aim is to better our<br />

fifth placing in Las Vegas the<br />

last time we represented New<br />

Zealand in 2016,” she said.<br />

“It is exciting, extremely<br />

focused, intensely pleasurable<br />

work, right up until the moment<br />

on stage when they announce:<br />

‘We are ready for our next<br />

contestant, from Christchurch,<br />

New Zealand, under the<br />

direction of Virginia Humphrey-<br />

Taylor, the Christchurch City<br />

Chorus,’ I live for this moment<br />

in my life,” Ms Humphrey-Taylor<br />

said.<br />

Charity shops seen as a rubbish dump<br />

• By Laura Hitchon<br />

PEOPLE ARE discarding<br />

damaged goods and other<br />

rubbish outside charity shops to<br />

avoid paying refuse station fees.<br />

Charity shop staff are turning<br />

up to work on Monday mornings<br />

to discover large piles of damaged<br />

goods lying on their front<br />

door step and, although some<br />

items are saleable, many are not.<br />

St John Opportunity Shop<br />

volunteer Brian North said many<br />

people dropped off the goods at<br />

their Addington store at night<br />

or during the weekend when the<br />

shop was closed.<br />

“We would prefer that people<br />

drop off their goods during the<br />

daytime when we are able to<br />

inspect them.<br />

“People think that just because<br />

they donate something, we will<br />

accept it but we need to be able<br />

to sell these items and if they’re<br />

damaged, we can’t,” he said.<br />

Salvation Army Family Store<br />

Hornby shop manager Terry<br />

Murray said some people genuinely<br />

believed the goods they<br />

were donating were in an acceptable<br />

condition but many people<br />

knew the goods were rubbish<br />

and donated them anyway.<br />

Damaged goods being donated<br />

included lounge suites, drawers,<br />

mattresses, tables, chairs,<br />

ANNOYED: Salvation Army Family Store Hornby shop manager Terry Murray<br />

(right) and volunteer Neville Walton stand next to the overflowing rubbish skip<br />

filled with donated goods they cannot sell.<br />

sporting equipment, crockery,<br />

glassware, artwork, books, clothing<br />

and shoes.<br />

The money generated from<br />

selling donated goods goes back<br />

into the charity to help people<br />

in need, however, this was being<br />

jeopardised by the cost of having<br />

to dump other people’s rubbish.<br />

Mr Murray said they emptied<br />

their skip about three times a<br />

week which cost them about<br />

$140 each time.<br />

“One of the biggest expenses<br />

we have is taking damaged<br />

goods to the dump.”<br />

Mr Murray said the cost of<br />

taking rubbish to the refuse<br />

station was a possible cause of<br />

people dumping their unwanted<br />

goods at charity shops.<br />

“Many people don’t own a<br />

trailer and can’t afford to hire<br />

one let alone afford to take their<br />

rubbish to the dump, so they just<br />

leave it on the charity’s doorstep,”<br />

he said.<br />

To dump one tonne of general<br />

waste, the EcoCentral website<br />

lists it at $253.40.<br />

WASTE: Salvation Army staff members Leane<br />

PHOTOS: LAURA HITCHON<br />

Mr Murray said it would be<br />

beneficial if the city council<br />

collected large waste from the<br />

charity once a month and subsidised<br />

the dumping fees to ease<br />

pressure.<br />

A city council spokesperson<br />

said they expected residents to<br />

dispose of their unwanted items<br />

responsibly and that people<br />

should only make donations to<br />

charity stores that are open, able<br />

and willing to take their items.<br />

The spokesperson said dumping<br />

damaged goods at charity<br />

bins or store fronts could be seen<br />

as illegal dumping and could<br />

incur a fine for the person disposing<br />

of the litter.<br />

“The kerbside collection<br />

service is a standard service<br />

funded by ratepayers and we<br />

are unable to provide additional<br />

services above the entitlement of<br />

a property.”<br />

The spokesperson said<br />

unwanted goods could be<br />

disposed of at one of three<br />

EcoDrop recycling centres across<br />

the city at a cost.

Feral pigs hogging Bottle Lake<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

THIS IS what you may come<br />

across on a weekend stroll in<br />

Bottle Lake Forest.<br />

This photo of a feral pig<br />

was posted to the People’s<br />

Independent Republic of<br />

New Brighton Facebook page<br />

along with a discussion about<br />

sightings of the animal in the<br />

<strong>10</strong>km recreation reserve, which<br />

stretches from Burwood to the<br />

coast.<br />

But before you squeal – city<br />

council head of parks Andrew<br />

Rutledge is reassuring the threat<br />

to people is low.<br />

However, they should be<br />

avoided if spotted, he said.<br />

No reports have been received<br />

by city council of the animals<br />

attacking, but they are a<br />

nuisance.<br />

“Feral pigs are a threat to sites<br />

with high biodiversity values,<br />

as they can damage indigenous<br />

plants and animals. In this case<br />

they are mostly a nuisance to the<br />

landowners in the area, where<br />

they roam between properties,”<br />

he said.<br />

The pigs have been present in<br />

the Lower Styx area, including<br />

Bottle Lake Forest for some time,<br />

Mr Rutledge said.<br />

“They are very mobile animals<br />

and can cover large distances,<br />

moving across private and<br />

publicly-owned land.”<br />

Kainga resident Zac Cooper<br />

frequently runs around the forest<br />

with his dog and said he has<br />

spotted the nuisance animals on<br />

multiple occasions.<br />

“It was a few months back now<br />

. . . one was down by the Waimak<br />

River, in the forest alongside<br />

the river’s edge. Another was<br />

just up by Spencerville . . . my<br />

friend’s neighbour has trapped<br />

and killed a few, so he put one up<br />

on the barbeque one afternoon<br />

. . . apparently, the sightings are<br />

getting much more frequent,” he<br />

said.<br />

Mr Rutledge said the pigs have<br />

been factored into the parks’ pest<br />

control programme.<br />

SPOTTED:<br />

A feral pig<br />

in Bottle<br />

Lake<br />

Forest,<br />

which city<br />

council<br />

staff say<br />

are a low<br />

threat to<br />

people,<br />

but<br />

should be<br />

avoided.<br />

“Monitoring is in place for<br />

when these animals roam on<br />

to council reserves . . . it’s very<br />

hard to determine population<br />

numbers as the animals cover a<br />

large area.”<br />

The feral pigs, which are<br />

omnivorous, are believed to be<br />

widespread throughout the Canterbury<br />

region in suitable habitat<br />

types. In May, wild sows, a type<br />

of feral pig, were caught on camera<br />

in a native bush reserve, near<br />

Gibraltar Rock in the Port Hills.<br />

The Summit Road Society<br />

said the pigs were becoming<br />

a problem with their<br />

rooting habits damaging the<br />

undergrowth of the native forest.<br />

Old Skellerup factory<br />

demolition under way<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

A LARGE portion of the<br />

remaining abandoned Skellerup<br />

factory is being demolished at its<br />

former Woolston site.<br />

The BL Family Trust own<br />

the 59,801 sq m section of land<br />

on Garlands Rd and is in the<br />

process of clearing more than<br />

70 per cent of the earthquakedamaged,<br />

asbestos-filled<br />

buildings.<br />

Skellerup moved out in 2016<br />

to a new $60 million premises<br />

in Wigram. It sold the Woolston<br />

site ‘as is where is’.<br />

BL Family Trust representative<br />

Vipan Garg said the demolition<br />

is taking place in order to clean<br />

up the “eyesore” which is derelict<br />

and attracting vandals.<br />

“It was a problem within the<br />

community. People were getting<br />

into the buildings, as they were<br />

left unattended.”<br />

National Steel, the main site<br />

occupant, processes and sorts<br />

metal on the empty land and<br />

will continue to use one building<br />

as a “hub” which has been<br />

deemed safe by an engineer.<br />

Fair Auto Dismantlers, Lowe<br />

Industries and NZ Besthome<br />

Furniture also occupy the shedlike<br />

buildings on the site, which<br />

have been assessed as safe.<br />

CLEAN-UP: More than 70 per<br />

cent of the derelict buildings<br />

at the former Skellerup<br />

factory site in Woolston<br />

are being knocked down.<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

The BL Family Trust has<br />

applied for a proposed boundary<br />

adjustment to three main lots<br />

on the site and wants it to be<br />

processed by the city council.<br />

However, demolition project<br />

manager Jarrad Smith said there<br />

are no plans to sell or develop<br />

the area at this stage.<br />

He said the purpose of the<br />

boundary adjustment is to<br />

square off the land into three<br />

clear parcels. “Potentially at<br />

some point, something will<br />

happen with the site. What that<br />

is and when that is hasn’t been<br />

determined,”Mr Smith said.<br />

The demolition may take up to<br />

a year and the materials will be<br />

dumped at Kate Valley landfill.<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

Exotic food with the least hassle<br />

If you are going to cook<br />

for a large dinner party,<br />

organisation and preparation<br />

are key, starting with<br />

working out a menu well<br />

ahead of the event. Try<br />

including this tasty Asianinfluenced<br />

starter to your<br />

list<br />

Tamarind chilli crispy-skin<br />

salmon with green mango<br />

herb salad<br />

Serves 4<br />

Ingredients<br />

600g salmon fillets, cut into 4cm<br />

cubes, patted dry with paper<br />

towels<br />

Sea salt<br />

Fresh cracked black pepper<br />

Crispy shallots<br />

Oil<br />

Tamarind chilli dressing<br />

5-<strong>10</strong>g large dried red chillies<br />

2 cloves garlic, peeled, minced in<br />

a mortar and pestle with a pinch<br />

of salt<br />

5g belacan (shrimp paste)<br />

65g gula melaka, shaved<br />

25g tamarind pulp, soaked in<br />

150ml<br />

hot water, rendered and sieved<br />

1½ Tbsp lemon juice<br />

2 large kaffir lime leaves, finely<br />

julienned<br />

Green mango herb salad<br />

½ telegraph cucumber or one<br />

lebanese cucumber, unpeeled,<br />

shaved into ribbons<br />

1 green mango, peeled, shaved<br />

into ribbons<br />

1 small bunch coriander leaves<br />

1 small bunch Thai basil leaves<br />

2 wing beans, finely sliced<br />

Squeeze of lemon juice<br />

Pinch of sugar<br />

Olive oil<br />

Directions<br />

Season the fish with salt and<br />

pepper and a drizzle of oil.<br />

Place the soaked dried chillies<br />

and garlic in a food processor<br />

and blend until a fine paste.<br />

Heat two tablespoons of oil in<br />

a small saucepan over medium<br />

heat, add the shrimp paste and<br />

mash with a wooden spatula.<br />

Cook for 1min until the shrimp<br />

paste becomes fragrant and<br />

starts to toast.<br />

Add the chilli garlic paste<br />

and continue to cook, stirring<br />

frequently, until fragrant.<br />

Add the gula melaka and cook<br />

until dark, glossy and sticky.<br />

Slowly pour in the tamarind<br />

puree. Cook until slightly<br />

thickened, then stir in the lemon<br />

juice and sprinkle on the kaffir<br />

lime leaves. Remove from heat<br />

and set aside.<br />

Heat a non-stick fry pan over<br />

high heat. Place the fish pieces<br />

skin side down evenly around<br />

the pan and cook until crisp and<br />

golden.<br />

To ensure that the skin is<br />

evenly crispy, you may need to<br />

gently press with a spatula to<br />

keep the skin flat on the pan.<br />

Turn over, and cook the other<br />

side until three-quarter cooked.<br />

Pour over the tamarind chilli<br />

sauce and toss very gently to just<br />

coat. Be careful not to break up<br />

the fish pieces.<br />

Combine the salad ingredients,<br />

and dress with lemon juice,<br />

sugar and olive oil just before<br />

serving.<br />

Transfer the fish to a serving<br />

plate along with all the sauce<br />

and top with the green mango,<br />

cucumber and herb salad.<br />

Sprinkle with crispy shallots and<br />

serve immediately.<br />

Note: Adjust the quantity<br />

of the large, red dried chillies<br />

according to your taste. Also,<br />

leave the seeds in if you like<br />

the dish extra spicy, otherwise,<br />

deseed them.<br />

In any case, soak the chillies in<br />

hot water until softened before<br />

using them.<br />

specialists<br />

Long-established car light specialists,<br />

Braxton Car Lights, are now shining their<br />

lights from a new address – just around the<br />

corner from their familiar Brougham Street<br />

site.<br />

The business moved from 325 Brougham<br />

Street to 95 Gasson Street, where they offer<br />

a brighter showroom, easier access for their<br />

customers and plenty of off-street parking.<br />

“We’re all set up in our new premises,”<br />

sales manager Richard Vernimmen says,<br />

“and continuing to provide our customers<br />

with an extensive range of replacement<br />

lights for most Japanese, European and<br />

New Zealand-made vehicles. We can cover<br />

most vehicles on the road, and all our lights<br />

are fully checked and in perfect working<br />

order.”<br />

If they don’t have it in stock, they can<br />

source it from one of the other branches in<br />

the nationwide BE Group, Richard says. BE<br />

is one of New Zealand’s largest importers of<br />

car, truck and commercial parts.<br />

Braxton Car Lights also offers a repair<br />

service for headlights, with their skilled<br />

staff of three having 80 years’ experience in<br />

the automotive trade between them. They<br />

also specialise in light adjuster and light<br />

conversion of American car lights and their<br />

repair service includes plastic<br />

welding, drying out, and<br />

re-silvering, re-sealing<br />

and lens refurbishment.<br />

Their services can also<br />

be arranged through<br />

your own local garage or<br />

workshop.<br />

REAL ESTATE<br />

Private, peaceful<br />

Purau rural retreat<br />

52 Purau Port Levy Road, Purau Valley, Lyttelton Harbour<br />

Price: $850,000 plus GST if any<br />

2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 2 living rooms | 13ha | Listing Number: 9736<br />

Seldom do properties such as this come<br />

to the market but retiring vendors of 30<br />

years have decided the time has come.<br />

This is a wonderful location, peaceful<br />

and private with wonderful bird song. Set<br />

on 13.1369 hectares or 32.5 acres approx.<br />

this charming <strong>10</strong>0m 2 home is both easycare<br />

and warm. Commanding beautiful<br />

views of the Purau Valley, Purau Bay and<br />

Mt Evans, if you are looking for peace and<br />

privacy then this one could be for you.<br />

Set well off the road the house has<br />

two double bedrooms, two living areas,<br />

lovely decking and one bathroom. North<br />

East facing and sheltered with a garage/<br />

workshop adjacent to the house. The<br />

garden is easy care and the land is a<br />

mixture of pasture in five paddocks for<br />

grazing, some bush and about 250 approx.<br />

30 year old pine trees ready for harvesting.<br />

The property is well fenced and has an<br />

excellent water supply, a small stream and<br />

a natural pond. Further down the driveway<br />

there is a set of yards, a four bay implement<br />

shed, a tractor shed with high stud and a<br />

large high stud workshop with three phase<br />

power. There is also a semi derelict house<br />

from about the 1930s on the property.<br />

This is an idyllic location and perfect for<br />

a retiring farmer, someone wanting to get<br />

into the firewood business or someone with<br />

a portable mill to make use of all the trees.<br />

Purau Bay is approximately 30 minutes’<br />

drive from Christchurch, making it a<br />

highly desirable destination as it is so<br />

useable being close to Christchurch.<br />

Properties in this lovely valley and by such<br />

a safe swimming beach are defying all the<br />

odds and selling fast generally as they come<br />

up very seldom.<br />

Excellent swimming, boating, walking<br />
