Doing it for his twin sister<br />

Nico’s race to<br />

raise suicide<br />

awareness<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-<br />

Harding<br />

PARA-SWIMMER Nico<br />

Wildbore usually has his<br />

mind on winning in the pool.<br />

But today the 17-year-old<br />

will only be thinking of his<br />

twin sister Bethany, who<br />

tragically died of a suspected<br />

suicide last year.<br />

As part of World Suicide<br />

Prevention Day, Nico is<br />

set to swim 16km to raise<br />

money for the Mental Health<br />

Foundation.<br />

He wants people to talk<br />

about mental health and<br />

wishes more than anything<br />

his sister had opened up about<br />

what she was going through.<br />

“Obviously she had very<br />

bad depression, she was losing<br />

a lot of weight but she kept it<br />

private. I didn’t really know<br />

about it until everything<br />

happened,” he said.<br />

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think a right-turning bay should be installed on Main South<br />

Rd? Email your views to georgia.oconnor@starmedia.kiwi<br />

Intersection layout reconsidered<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

BUSINESSES frustrated by a<br />

lack of direct access into their<br />

shopping area may have their<br />

concerns eased.<br />

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board has<br />

asked for its original decision to<br />

ban vehicles from turning right<br />

or making U-turns on Main<br />

South Rd, opposite Harvard Ave<br />

to be reconsidered.<br />

RA Shearings Contractors<br />

director Bob Shearing, DA<br />

Lewis director Mark Lewis and<br />

Chipmunks Playland & Cafe<br />

Wigram business partner Dell<br />

Lu have been calling for a rightturning<br />

bay to be installed at the<br />

intersection.<br />

They made a presentation on<br />

behalf of other businesses in the<br />

area to the board recently asking<br />

it to reconsider a report made by<br />

city council staff.<br />

A new report made by city<br />

council staff concluded installing<br />

a right turning bay will have<br />

no benefit to improving the<br />

safety of motorists.<br />

It instead planned to improve<br />

road-marking improvements<br />

and re-enforce no right turn and<br />

no U-turn movements.<br />

City council staff were<br />

required to look into the issue<br />

after a petition of almost 150<br />

signatures was collected calling<br />

for a right-turning bay to<br />

be constructed in the area in<br />

February.<br />

Following the presentation of<br />

the report, the board asked the<br />

no right-turn and no U-turn<br />

sign to be reconsidered.<br />

Mr Shearing, a former city<br />

councillor, said he would have<br />

liked to have seen the board a<br />

bit more “forceful” in getting<br />

the signs removed and a rightturning<br />

bay installed.<br />

But he said: “At least we are<br />

still there and they can come<br />

back (city council staff) and<br />

hopefully something sensible<br />

can be made out of the situation<br />

and we will go back to the status<br />

quo.”<br />

Businesses had raised concerns<br />

in the past that patronage<br />

would decline due to customers<br />

travelling into Hornby being<br />

unable to directly access their<br />

business.<br />

In a presentation to the board<br />

recently, Mr Shearing said hundreds<br />

of vehicles need to make<br />

right turns and U-turns somewhere<br />

along this stretch of road.<br />

“Prior to the installation of<br />

the signs in January these turns<br />

were spread between the four<br />

intersections, however, mostly<br />

were at the Harvard Ave intersection,”<br />

he said.<br />

He argued there was never a<br />

safety issue at the Harvard Ave<br />

intersection.<br />

New Zealand Transport<br />

Agency crash data one crash was<br />

recorded at the intersection.<br />

City council is expected to<br />

report back to the board in the<br />

coming weeks with the review<br />

to take into account road safety<br />

and the impacts on commercial<br />

businesses.<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 />

Robertson (left) and Karen White with dirty,<br />

stained and faded clothing.<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.<br />

Templeton quarry<br />

A neighbourhood for<br />

the lucky few in the<br />

heart of Halswell<br />

Sections from $191,000<br />

cloverden.nz | 08004AVANDA<br />

plan runs into major stumbling block<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-<br />

Harding<br />

FULTON HOGAN’S plan to<br />

open a controversial quarry in<br />

Templeton has hit a major road<br />

block.<br />

But the company is confident it<br />

can address the concerns raised<br />

by experts over its proposed<br />

170ha Roydon Quarry.<br />

Environment Canterbury and<br />

the Selwyn District Council are<br />

recommending the application<br />

to open the quarry is declined<br />

unless changes are made.<br />

Independently prepared<br />

Section 42A reports for the two<br />

authorities were released last<br />

week ahead<br />

of the quarry<br />

hearing due<br />

to start in<br />

November.<br />

Traffic<br />

issues, hours<br />

of operation<br />

and unclear<br />

Simon Moore<br />

plans on how<br />

Fulton Hogan<br />

will reduce<br />

major air pollutant PM<strong>10</strong><br />

are key reasons behind the<br />

recommendation for the<br />

ROCKY: Environment Canterbury and the Selwyn District<br />

Council have recommended consent for Fulton Hogan’s<br />

planned quarry in Templeton be declined.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

application to be declined.<br />

But Fulton Hogan South Island<br />

general manager Craig Stewart<br />

said he is confident any technical<br />

concerns raised about traffic,<br />

hours of operation and dust can<br />

be addressed to the satisfaction<br />

of the community and decisionmakers.<br />

In a new development on top<br />

of the release of the reports,<br />

residents are unhappy some<br />

submitters will not have a say<br />

on the changes made last month<br />

by Fulton Hogan to its original<br />

application. The changes include<br />

amending its proposal from<br />

1500 heavy vehicle movements a<br />

day to a daily limit of 800 heavy<br />

vehicles.<br />

ECan and the district council<br />

will only accept submissions<br />

on whether the changes to the<br />

quarry application are significant<br />

enough that it should be treated<br />

as a completely new process.<br />

All submissions are required to<br />

be authored by legal counsel and<br />

are due on <strong>September</strong> 17.<br />

Only those who chose to speak<br />

at the hearing before the changes<br />

were made will have a chance<br />

to do so. Quarry opponent<br />

Simon Moore said it is “unfair”<br />

submitters who will not speak<br />

at the hearing will not have an<br />

opportunity to have a say on the<br />

changes.<br />

But he said if ECan and<br />

the district council are<br />

recommending the application<br />

be declined, it is a good outcome.<br />

His views are backed<br />

by Templeton Residents’<br />

Association treasurer<br />

Jolene Eagar, who said<br />

the biggest item to<br />

come out of the report<br />

was the traffic concerns<br />

highlighted.<br />

As part of the<br />

Section 42A report,<br />

the district council’s<br />

recommendations<br />

were made by Andrew<br />

Henderson from<br />

independent engineering<br />

consultant Beca, while Incite<br />

resource management consultant<br />

Hannah Goslin was contracted<br />

by ECan.<br />

Mr Henderson said the<br />

application needs to have<br />

appropriate measures to avoid<br />

Jolene Eagar<br />

adverse effects arising from<br />

trucks queuing between the<br />

main trunk railway crossing and<br />

Main South Rd.<br />

This is a result of Fulton<br />

Hogan proposing to provide a<br />

vehicle access point from Jones<br />

Rd into the quarry, which is<br />

adjacent to Main South Rd.<br />

Mr Henderson’s other key<br />

concern is all activities proposed<br />

to occur between 8pm and<br />

6am at the quarry need to be<br />

removed.<br />

Incite resource<br />

management consultant<br />

Hannah Goslin said she<br />

has not been provided<br />

with enough information<br />

to show Fulton Hogan<br />

can reliably reduce the<br />

discharge of PM<strong>10</strong> (a<br />

major air pollutant).<br />

“At this time, I do not<br />

consider the applicant<br />

is able to comply with<br />

Regulation 17(1) of the National<br />

Standards for Air Quality,” she<br />

said.<br />

Mr Stewart said Fulton Hogan<br />

is going over the detail of expert<br />

opinions and will be addressing<br />

this in its evidence, ongoing<br />

conversations and at the hearing.<br />

Residents to<br />

lobby council<br />

for liquor policy<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

RESIDENTS FIGHTING a<br />

long battle to stop an off-licence<br />

liquor store from opening in<br />

Halswell have been defeated.<br />

The Alcohol Regulatory and<br />

Licensing Authority dismissed<br />

an appeal by the Halswell<br />

Residents’ Association to allow<br />

Bottle-O Halswell to open a<br />

store at 29 Ensign St.<br />

In December, Bottle-O<br />

Halswell Ltd was granted an<br />

application to open the store, but<br />

the decision was appealed by the<br />

association.<br />

Halswell Residents’ Association<br />

secretary David Hawke said<br />

it knew the odds were stacked<br />

against it.<br />

“But we still felt it was worth<br />

giving it a go. Even though<br />

we lost we are still glad we attempted<br />

it,” he said.<br />

The association will now be<br />

working towards lobbying for<br />

the city council to develop its<br />

Local Alcohol Policy.<br />

Mr Hawke had previously<br />

said the drawn-out process has<br />

highlighted “significant deficiencies”<br />

in alcohol inspectors and<br />

the knowledge base of agencies<br />

and district licensing committee<br />

members.<br />

Panthers fan ‘stoked’ with chopper flight<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

PAUL MATHESON has never<br />

flown in a helicopter before.<br />

But little did he know when<br />

he liked the Greater Hornby<br />

Residents’ Association Facebook<br />

page he would become the<br />

prizewinner of a free flight over<br />

the suburb.<br />

The association was running<br />

a competition with the 3000th<br />

person to like its page winning<br />

a free flight with Christchurch<br />

Helicopters.<br />

That 3000th person happened<br />

to be Mr Matheson.<br />

The only condition was the<br />

winner had to take photos of<br />

Hornby while hovering in the<br />

skies.<br />

Mr Matheson, who is the<br />

owner of pick-up and delivery<br />

service Man with a Van<br />

Christchurch, said it was an<br />

“awesome flight” and wanted<br />

to thank GHRA and<br />

Christchurch Helicopters for<br />

the opportunity.<br />

He said said he was “pretty<br />

stoked” as he didn’t even know<br />

the competition was running<br />

when he liked the page.<br />

Mr Matheson was slightly<br />

nervous having only ever flown<br />

in a microlite while in Rarotonga<br />

which was “a bit scary.”<br />

But his nerves were put to ease<br />

as he got to fly in a new model<br />

of the Guimbal Cabri G2<br />

helicopter.<br />

He described it as a “late<br />

birthday present” after turning<br />

50 in June.<br />

Mr Matheson joked it may<br />

upset a few Hornby residents,<br />

because he has lived in Halswell<br />

most of his life.<br />

His reason for liking the<br />

Facebook page was because he<br />

was an avid follower of rugby<br />

league and was interested in<br />

following the Hornby Panthers<br />

as part of Canterbury Rugby<br />

League’s grand final held<br />

recently.<br />

Playing for the Halswell<br />

Big swim in memory of twin sister<br />

•From page 1<br />

Nico decided to swim the<br />

gruelling distance to mark his<br />

sister being 16-years-old at the<br />

time of her death.<br />

For the past three years,<br />

Nico has been training at the<br />

Waitaha Swim Club, based at<br />

the Canterbury Swim School in<br />

Hornby, where the swim will be<br />

held today.<br />

Nico’s mother Keiran Horne<br />

said Bethany, who attended<br />

Hagley Community College,<br />

struggled following the February<br />

22, 2011, earthquake.<br />

She was located at Redcliffs<br />

School at the time of the quake.<br />

“You could imagine it was<br />

pretty traumatic with the cliffs<br />

coming down so for years after<br />

Beth had trouble sleeping.<br />

“She had been seeing a<br />

psychologist for sometime, she<br />

had been working on strategies to<br />

keep on an even keel. Then about<br />

a month before she died she just<br />

went on a downward spiral.”<br />

Ms Horne said she is<br />

immensely proud of Nico, who<br />

came up with the idea of the<br />

swim and organised the event<br />

himself.<br />

She said Bethany had a<br />

beautiful soul and was loved by<br />

many, but a lot of people didn’t<br />

realise the struggles she was<br />

ENDURANCE: Nico Wildbore is set to swim 16km today to raise awareness about the stigma<br />

attached to talking about mental health and suicide.<br />

going through.<br />

Ms Horne said there needs to<br />

be more education and talk about<br />

dealing mental health issues.<br />

“I have always been a really<br />

open communicator with my<br />

children, but when we had to<br />

start to deal with issues around<br />

mental health I actually really<br />

struggled to know how to talk<br />

about it in the best way.”<br />

The distance of the swim is a<br />

difficult undertaking for anyone,<br />

but especially for Nico.<br />

He was born with a type of<br />

cerebral palsy called hemiplegia,<br />

which means Nico has limited<br />

mobility in his right arm and leg.<br />

But Nico, who is transgender, is<br />

a high achiever. Last year he was<br />

named the best para-swimmer<br />

at the Canterbury secondary<br />

swimming championships. One<br />

of his big goals is to make it to the<br />

Paralympics and pave the way for<br />

other transgender people to do<br />

the same.<br />

Since his sister’s death, Nico<br />

said he has been coping as well as<br />

he can, but is taking it one day at<br />

a time.<br />

The spotlight is on mental<br />

health issues which are at an alltime<br />

high in Canterbury.<br />

Police statistics showed 4369<br />

attempted suicide events in<br />

Canterbury were reported in<br />

2018, up 59 per cent from 2015.<br />

Ms Horne said she wants<br />

people who may be feeling the<br />

way her daughter did to know<br />

there is always hope.<br />

Successful new 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<br />

winner of the Canterbury<br />

Young Enterprise Product<br />

launch recently, which was<br />

sponsored by Ara Institute of<br />

Canterbury.<br />

The business, which creates<br />

freshly flavoured popcorn was<br />

founded by year 13 students<br />

– Riccarton’s Eileen Prasad<br />

and Arnie Ferreras, New<br />

Brighton’s Tara Blackmore<br />

and Redcliff’s 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<br />

profit from the business and<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<br />

caramel 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<br />

behind the flavours, was last<br />

year’s winner of the National<br />

Secondary School Culinary<br />

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 />

Chorus bound for 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 performed<br />

internationally was 2016<br />

in Las Vegas where they placed<br />

fifth and received the “most<br />

entertaining” award.<br />

The chorus is made up of 130<br />

women from across Christchurch,<br />

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 />

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<br />

she said.<br />

Papanui’s Nicky McCaughan<br />

is the group’s visual director,<br />

and she is in charge of the choreography<br />

and showmanship of<br />

the chorus.<br />

The chorus will fly to New<br />

Orleans this week, and the<br />

competition will run from <strong>September</strong><br />

16 to 21.<br />

Redwood resident Sharyn<br />

Glassey is excited and feels<br />

“blessed” to be a part of the<br />

chorus.<br />

“Never in my wildest dreams<br />

did I ever think I would be representing<br />

our beautiful country<br />

in an international competition,”<br />

she said.<br />

Musical director Virginia<br />

Humphrey-Taylor said the chorus<br />

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<br />

time. The chorus’ aim is to better<br />

our fifth placing in Las Vegas<br />

the last time we represented<br />

New 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-<br />

Taylor said.<br />

The city council is planning<br />

to lower the speed limits on<br />

The New Zealand Transport<br />

City council staff have spoken<br />

to residents and businesses about<br />

making the highway around<br />

Yaldhurst safer.<br />

There has been a lot of<br />

development in the area, both<br />

commercial and residential, and<br />

more pedestrians are present,<br />

especially around the intersection<br />

of SH73 and Sir John MacKenzie<br />

Ave.<br />

In the last <strong>10</strong> years, there were<br />

56 crashes. As a result of these<br />

crashes, there was one fatality<br />

MUSIC: Villa Maria College’s Con Brio has won a coveted silver award at The Big Sing Finale. ​<br />

Silver award for Villa singers<br />

VILLA MARIA College’s largest<br />

choir, Con Brio, has won a<br />

coveted silver award at The Big<br />

Sing Finale.<br />

The Big Sing is a nationwide<br />

choral competition, hosted<br />

by the New Zealand Choral<br />

Federation.<br />

It sees New Zealand’s<br />

secondary school choirs compete<br />

in regional contests, before a list<br />

of the best of the best is released.<br />

Those choirs are then invited<br />

to the televised national finale in<br />

search of gold, silver and bronze<br />

medals.<br />

Twenty-four choirs were selected<br />

for the finale.<br />

The finale was held in<br />

Dunedin and culminated in a<br />

gala concert.<br />

Con Brio is made up of 53<br />

girls from year <strong>10</strong> to year 13,<br />

who share a love of singing and<br />

performing.<br />

“I am enormously proud of the<br />

girls, they work incredibly hard<br />

throughout the year, and they<br />

just keep getting better,” said<br />

choral director Naomi Hnat.<br />

“The girls hold themselves to<br />

a very high standard and stretch<br />

themselves to continue to grow<br />

as a group. Some of the girls are<br />

more experienced than others,<br />

and it’s a pleasure to watch those<br />

students help to lead the group.”<br />

Ms Hnat said performing<br />

alongside other talented choirs<br />

from all around New Zealand is<br />

very special.<br />

“This year there were only<br />

four choirs from Canterbury<br />

selected for the finale, so we feel<br />

proud to be among the best in<br />

the region, and now we can say<br />

we are among the best in the<br />

country.”<br />

THE SEARCH for New<br />

Zealand’s top outdoor spot has<br />

been won by three Christchurch<br />

children.<br />

And one of those winners was<br />

Waimairi School year 6 pupil<br />

Lauren Hickmott.<br />

Lauren (right) won the art<br />

prize for her silhouette called<br />

Alone, which showcases the sense<br />

of solitude which comes from<br />

camping beneath the night sky.<br />

The annual competition is<br />

run by the Walking Access<br />

Commission, and entries were<br />

received from all over New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Pupils entered a photo,<br />

drawing, poem or short story<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 />

WINNERS: CGHS beat Dunedin’s St Hilda’s Collegiate to win the South<br />

Island Secondary Schools netball tournament final for the first time in<br />

51 years on Thursday.<br />

CGHS win netball title, Villa Maria third<br />

• By Claire Booker<br />

CHRISTCHURCH Girls’ High<br />

have won the South Island<br />

Secondary Schools netball<br />

competition for the first time in<br />

51 years.<br />

CGHS beat Dunedin’s St<br />

Hilda’s Collegiate 29-27 in a<br />

nail-biting final which went into<br />

extra time at Saxton Stadium in<br />

Nelson on Thursday.<br />

Both teams now head to the<br />

nationals next month.<br />

CGHS stayed either level or<br />

in front throughout the A grade<br />

final.<br />

It was 9-9 after the first quarter<br />

and 12-12 at half-time until<br />

CGHS nudged ahead by two<br />

goals after the third quarter.<br />

At full-time, the teams were<br />

level again 26-26. In overtime,<br />

it see-sawed again as both sides<br />

fought hard for the two-goal<br />

advantage needed to take the<br />

title.<br />

South Island Secondary<br />

Schools Netball Association<br />

chairwoman Maggie Lloyd<br />

SPORT<br />

described the game as<br />

“fabulous.”<br />

“There was outstanding<br />

defence all throughout the court.<br />

The crowd swung from wanting<br />

one team to win to another team<br />

to win,” she said.<br />

Lloyd said CGHS goal shoot,<br />

Olivia McIntyre was “amazing”.<br />

CGHS co-captains Charlotte<br />

Knight and Shana Ali were<br />

named the talented players of the<br />

tournament.<br />

Lloyd said the reason for the<br />

low scoring final was because<br />

St Hilda’s played a patient game<br />

and looked to control the ball.<br />

The standard had improved<br />

compared to previous years, she<br />

said.<br />

CGHS went into the<br />

tournament ranked third, two<br />

places ahead of St Hilda’s.<br />

CGHS beat Ashburton College<br />

34-21 in the semi-final, and<br />

St Hilda’s knocked reigning<br />

champions Villa Maria College<br />

out of the running in the other<br />

semi.<br />

Villa beat Ashburton 39-30 for<br />

third, while St Margaret’s beat St<br />

Andrew’s College for fifth spot,<br />

36-34.<br />

CGHS, St Hilda’s, Villa<br />

Maria, Ashburton College<br />

and St Margaret’s qualified for<br />

the New Zealand Secondary<br />

Schools tournament in Nelson in<br />

October.<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 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 />

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 />

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 />

and stunning sunsets on the hills, quick<br />

and easy access to Lyttelton via the<br />

Diamond Harbour ferry (approx. five<br />

mins), local shops, cafés and bar make this<br />

a fun filled place to visit. Properties here<br />

make an excellent investment and Purau<br />

Bay and valley is a truly magical place to<br />

live.<br />
