new clubrooms.<br />

Since the <strong>September</strong> 4,<br />

2010, earthquake destroyed<br />

the club’s old headquarters,<br />

five shipping containers in<br />

South New Brighton Park,<br />

with no power, showers,<br />

toilets or kitchen.<br />

The new facility sits in the<br />

same location, and although<br />

the club was not able to build<br />

its ideal facility due to a lack<br />

of funds, it purchased two<br />

relocatable buildings from<br />

Shirley 108yo’s secret to long life<br />

• By Claire Booker<br />

NINA BROWN has never<br />

smoked or drank and loves her<br />

greens.<br />

And last week, she celebrated<br />

her 108th birthday.<br />

Nina, who is understood to<br />

be the oldest person in New<br />

Zealand, had a beaming smile<br />

as she cut her birthday cake at<br />

Windsorcare Retirement Village<br />

in Shirley.<br />

She has been a passionate<br />

“greenie” all her life, her nephew<br />

Murray Brown said.<br />

“Nina was way green before<br />

green was cool. When she<br />

washed her dishes, she would<br />

use a tub of water and Sunlight<br />

soap. Once the dishes were<br />

clean, she would use the soapy<br />

water to keep the aphids off her<br />

roses,” he said.<br />

Nina has never had any health<br />

issues, other than a couple of<br />

sprained ankles from Scottish<br />

Country Dancing which she did<br />

until she was 90, and a double<br />

hip replacement four years ago.<br />

She also never married.<br />

She would tell the staff at the<br />

retirement village: “I’m going to<br />

be the oldest New Zealander one<br />

day.”<br />

Nina studied to be a teacher<br />

when she was 16 and received a<br />

Master of Arts in english from<br />

Canterbury University.<br />

She worked as a teacher in<br />

England in the 1930s, until she<br />

was sent home when World War<br />

2 broke out.<br />

“Her passions were teaching<br />

and travelling,” Mr Brown said.<br />

When she arrived back<br />

in New Zealand, she taught<br />

students throughout the war,<br />

and although her speciality was<br />

english, the shortage of teachers<br />

saw her teaching a range of<br />

different subjects, including<br />

woodwork. Nina never drank<br />

alcohol, but Mr Brown said she<br />

always raved about his custard<br />

which had a healthy dash of<br />

brandy in it.<br />

At her party yesterday,<br />

Nina enjoyed a cup of tea and<br />

birthday cake with some friends<br />

and received a hand-written<br />

card from Prime Minister<br />

Jacinda Arden, and cards from<br />

Lianne Dalziel, the Queen and<br />

Government House – which she<br />

read without any assistance.<br />

Meanwhile, New Zealand’s<br />

oldest man, Ron Hermanns,<br />

who also lives in Christchurch,<br />

will celebrate his 108th birthday<br />

this week.<br />

In Brief<br />

SPEED SIGN REQUEST<br />

Advice has been sought about the<br />

possibility of installing flashing<br />

speed signs on Gayhurst Rd<br />

north of the Gayhurst Bridge in<br />

Dallington. The Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community Board raised the<br />

idea at its last meeting as a way<br />

to try and stop people driving<br />

dangerously on the road.<br />

COMMUNITY GRANTS<br />

The Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community Board has granted<br />

$4000 to the Avon Heathcote<br />

Estuary Ihutai Trust towards the<br />

Bexley Reserve Enhancement<br />

Project. Eastern Community<br />

Sport and Recreation Inc<br />

received $8000 towards the<br />

Eastern Community Activator<br />

programme wages and<br />

$6000 towards its Early Birds<br />

Programme co-ordinator wages.<br />

The grants came from the board’s<br />

Discretionary Response Fund.<br />

FAMILY FUN DAY<br />

The Salvation Army will be<br />

holding a family fun day in<br />

Riccarton this Saturday. The<br />

Salvation Army band will be<br />

Our Dogs, Ourselves<br />

The Story of a Singular Bond by<br />

Alexandra Horowitz<br />

We keep dogs and are kept by them. We love dogs and (we<br />

assume) we are loved by them. We buy them sweaters, toys,<br />

shoes; we are concerned with their social lives, their food, and their<br />

health. The story of humans and dogs is thousands of years old but<br />

is far from understood. In Our Dogs, Ourselves, Alexandra Horowitz<br />

explores all aspects of this unique and complex interspecies pairing.<br />

As Horowitz considers the current culture of dogdom, she reveals<br />

the odd, surprising, and contradictory ways we live with dogs. We<br />

celebrate their individuality but breed them for sameness. Despite<br />

our deep emotional relationships with dogs, legally they are property<br />

to be bought, sold, abandoned, or euthanized as we wish. Even the<br />

way we speak to our dogs is at once perplexing and delightful.<br />

In thirteen thoughtful and charming chapters, Our Dogs, Ourselves<br />

affirms our profound affection for this most charismatic of animals<br />

and opens our eyes to the companions at our sides as never before.<br />

Native Son<br />

The Writer’s Memoir by Witi Ihimaera<br />

The revealing sequel to the award-winning memoir Maori Boy.<br />

This is the second volume of memoir by this remarkable Maori<br />

writer and of the living myths that inspired him at the beginning of<br />

his career. Look at him, the young man on the cover. The year is<br />

1972, he is 28, his first book is about to be published, and he has<br />

every reason to kick up his heels.<br />

But behind that joyful smile, and the image of a writer footing it in<br />

the Pakeha world, there is another narrative, one that Witi has not<br />

told before. The story of a native son, struggling to find a place, a<br />

voice and an identity, and to put a secret past to rest. This sequel<br />

to his award-winning memoir picks up where Maori Boy stopped,<br />

following Witi through his triumphs and failures at school and<br />

university, to experimenting sexually, searching for love and purpose<br />

and to becoming our first Maori novelist.<br />

Ian McKellen: The Biography<br />

by Garry O’Connor<br />

The intimate and definitive biography of Ian McKellen, theatrical<br />

knight and a national treasure.<br />

Few actors achieve in their lifetime what Sir Ian McKellen has.<br />

A repertoire of vast commercial success coupled with critically<br />

acclaimed and authoritative Shakespearian roles. A man whose<br />

gargantuan personality and varied achievements inspire both<br />

admiration and affection. McKellen has been feted and admired<br />

in every country across the globe, and has been knighted by, and<br />

received the Companionship of Honour from Queen Elizabeth II. He<br />

is an icon of, and ardent campaigner in, the cause for LGBT rights.<br />

Many of us know of McKellen through his depiction of Gandalf in<br />

LORD OF THE RINGS. Garry O’Connor’s definitive biography reveals<br />

the man behind McKellen the actor. The inside story of the person<br />

himself: a constantly developing drama and a work in progress. Yet<br />

Garry O’Connor pulls no punches: some of his revelations may be<br />

controversial to his fans, even explosive, given McKellen’s constant<br />

ability to shock and surprise.<br />

“It’s all about celebrating really<br />

good, tasty food that just<br />

Bid to mitigate corridor congestion<br />

• By Claire Booker<br />

BUS LANES may be prioritised<br />

to alleviate congestion from a<br />

motorway extension being built<br />

through St Albans.<br />

The Northern Motorway is<br />

being extended through to QEII<br />

Drive and Cranford St and when<br />

completed will effectively slice<br />

St Albans in half. It will also<br />

add an extra<br />

48,000 vehicles<br />

a day.<br />

Residents<br />

have tried<br />

to fight the<br />

extension, but<br />

all that can be<br />

Mark Wilson<br />

done now is<br />

to find ways<br />

to alleviate<br />

the amount of traffic coming<br />

through the suburb.<br />

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

and Papanui-Innes community<br />

boards listened to emotional<br />

and angry residents over<br />

the proposal at a special meeting<br />

a fortnight ago. Then four days<br />

later they made their recommendations<br />

and said prioritising<br />

bus use will help. They said this<br />

should take precedence over<br />

installing a clearway. A clearway<br />

is a no stopping area that allows<br />

traffic to flow more freely.<br />

Cranford St was planned to<br />

FLOW: The proposed clearways on Cranford St may be<br />

used for public transport to help mitigate the effects of the<br />

Christchurch Northern Corridor through St Albans.<br />

be used as a clearway once the<br />

extension opens next year. But<br />

with the Linwood-Central-<br />

Heathcote and Papanui-Innes<br />

community boards recommendation,<br />

this means the bus lane<br />

could take priority.<br />

The boards also asked city<br />

council staff to look at park and<br />

ride options near QEII Drive.<br />

The decision will now go to<br />

the city council at its meeting on<br />

Thursday.<br />

Papanui-Innes board member<br />

and city councillor Mike Davidson<br />

said the boards were never<br />

going to be able to create a perfect<br />

outcome for the community<br />

“So what we’re trying to<br />

achieve is the best outcome with<br />

the limited ability we do have.<br />

No one wants the motorway, if<br />

we had made a decision today<br />

on whether we should have done<br />

a motorway, it would have never<br />

happened,” he said.<br />

All board members apart from<br />

Linwood-Central board member<br />

and city councillor Yani<br />

Johanson voted in favour of the<br />

‘If we had made a<br />

decision today on<br />

whether we should<br />

have done a motorway,<br />

it would never have<br />

happened’<br />

– Mike Davidson<br />

recommendations.<br />

“I’m really concerned that the<br />

plan is actually going to create a<br />

lot of problems on other streets,”<br />

Cr Johanson said.<br />

Cr Johanson thinks the<br />

improvements are not the right<br />

approach and wasn’t convinced<br />

Environment Canterbury would<br />

fund the proposed public transport<br />

lanes on Cranford St.<br />

“I can’t see any likelihood that<br />

Ecan would have the money<br />

to be able to fund more public<br />

transport,” he said.<br />

St Albans resident Mark<br />

Wilson said overall he is feeling<br />

good about the recommendations.<br />

“They will prepare the road<br />

for more traffic, but they won’t<br />

allow that traffic to have two or<br />

four lanes flow on. That’s the<br />

minimum really that we’ve been<br />

going on about. I think it’s a<br />

good decision,” he said.<br />

SOLUTION: Parking<br />

restrictions have been<br />

approved to stop congestion<br />

in streets surrounding the<br />

shared Shirley Boys’ High and<br />

Avonside Girls’ High campus.<br />

New measures<br />

will be analysed<br />

•From page 1<br />

Cr Livingstone said the school<br />

is in the busy Queen Elizabeth II<br />

Park area, with the Christchurch<br />

School of Gymnastics and Taiora:<br />

QEII Recreation Sport Centre on<br />

site.<br />

“If people can’t get on-site<br />

parking at those three places,<br />

then you’ve got pressure on the<br />

surrounding streets.”<br />

He said the effectiveness of<br />

the measures approved will be<br />

analysed and could be increased if<br />

parking issues continue.<br />

Reducing congestion has<br />

been a priority for the schools<br />

recently.<br />

In July, three new bus stops<br />

were approved on Bridge St,<br />

Breezes Rd and Avondale Rd to<br />

reduce the number of students<br />

and parents driving to school.<br />

MAXIMISE<br />

THE PROFIT FROM YOUR<br />

'AS IS, WHERE IS' ASSET<br />

It would seem that the current real estate market<br />

in Christchurch is rife with ‘As Is, Where Is’ experts, and<br />

private property speculators whose clear intention is to make<br />

substantial profit, offering to pay vendors the least they can,<br />

without the opportunity for home owners to test the entire<br />

market in a competitive environment.<br />

With over 600 ‘As Is, Uninsured’ sales to our name, Harcourts gold<br />

leads the way across Canterbury in volume and experience when<br />

it comes to marketing earthquake damaged homes. If you are<br />

considering selling an ‘As Is’ property, we would embrace the<br />

opportunity to empower you with the right knowledge to allow you<br />

to make an educated and informed decision regarding the future of<br />

your property.<br />

Selling damaged properties requires specialist skills and expertise.<br />

Unique to the post-earthquake Christchurch real estate market,<br />

these transactions involve the selling of properties where the owner<br />

has cash settled EQC and private insurance claims, and is retaining<br />

these funds rather than carrying out earthquake repairs. Owners<br />

may choose to take this option for a variety of reasons, and it does<br />

present purchasers with an opportunity to secure property below<br />

current market insured values. Over the past few years, the sale and<br />

purchase of ‘As Is, Uninsured’ homes has become commonplace,<br />

with a broad cross-section of purchasers now active in this market.<br />

When it comes to selling these homes, it is important to follow<br />

correct procedures to ensure that you, as an owner, are not left<br />

legally or financially exposed. The only way to genuinely determine<br />

the true market value of a property is to place all interested parties<br />

in a competitive environment, using our well-honed marketing<br />

template and extensive database of buyers.<br />

For further information, contact one of our coastal offices at<br />

Parklands or New Brighton today.<br />

Reserves benefit from planting events<br />

COMMUNITY volunteers<br />

have helped plant at least<br />

29,000 shrubs and trees in<br />

Christchurch parks and reserves<br />

in the past year.<br />

Planting days have taken<br />

place in areas including the Port<br />

Hills, Halswell Quarry Park and<br />

Travis Wetland Nature Heritage<br />

Park.<br />

This work has a value of about<br />

$1.5 million.<br />

The work has been carried<br />

out through the city council’s<br />

community partnership programme<br />

which aims to boost<br />

community-led action in the<br />

city’s green spaces.<br />

It includes running volunteer<br />

planting days, clean-ups, and<br />

working with schools to encourage<br />

kids to help improve their<br />

local parks and waterways.<br />

The programme is now in its<br />

second year of operation and<br />

receives an annual grant from<br />

the Community Resilience Fund<br />

for two years.<br />

Recognising the work of local<br />

volunteers is timely because this<br />

week is the 50th anniversary of<br />

conservation week – a national<br />

celebration that encourages<br />

people to get involved in nature<br />

and help take care of it.<br />

There were more than 38,000<br />

volunteer hours recorded<br />

across all city council parks<br />

GROWING: Volunteers like this group at Travis Wetland have<br />

helped plant 29,000 shrubs and trees in the last financial year. ​<br />

programmes in the last financial<br />

year, a 27 per cent increase on<br />

the previous year.<br />

This represents 29,000 plants<br />

and trees put into the ground,<br />

an outcome that would normally<br />

cost between $1.1 million<br />

and $1.5 million to achieve.<br />

City council manager of<br />

parks, programmes and<br />

partnerships Kate Russell said<br />

the fund is a great example of<br />

what can be achieved when<br />

the city council is able to boost<br />

community involvement and<br />

volunteering.<br />

“The numbers only tell part of<br />

the story, the significance of the<br />

stories and goodwill generated<br />

can’t be overestimated. It really<br />

nurtures active citizenship. The<br />

feelings of guardianship that<br />

have been generated through<br />

this work are where the true<br />

value lie.<br />

“The programme caters for<br />

people who want to do one-off<br />

service in their community<br />

‘The feelings of<br />

guardianship that have<br />

been generated through<br />

this work are where the<br />

true values lie’<br />

parks as well as those who<br />

see themselves as longer term<br />

guardians of their parks and<br />

who give hundreds of voluntary<br />

hours individually each year.”<br />

As word spreads, staff are<br />

receiving a steadily increasing<br />

number of inquiries about<br />

projects that can be supported<br />

through the fund, she said.<br />

In 2018, a total of 62 events<br />

took place, including 20 that<br />

were one-off events and more<br />

than 40 that have sparked an<br />

ongoing commitment with multiple<br />

events over the year and<br />

more planned in the future.<br />

Ms Russell believes the numbers<br />

will grow even more when<br />

a city-wide volunteer database<br />

system is introduced and figures<br />

can be more accurately reported.<br />

The community partnership<br />

programme is managed by a<br />

co-ordinator and a full-time<br />

schools support field ranger.<br />

With current funding coming<br />

to an end by the end of 2020,<br />

the city council’s parks team is<br />

exploring ways to create a more<br />

permanent programme, she said.<br />

Thieves target<br />

garden items<br />

in Woolston<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

IT APPEARS there are thieves in<br />

Woolston with a green thumb and<br />

sticky fingers.<br />

A concrete birdbath, several<br />

planter boxes and urns have gone<br />

missing from properties in the<br />

suburb over the past month.<br />

Resident Freya Oakley posted on<br />

the Woolston Community United<br />

page recently, warning residents to<br />

keep an eye out for thieves stealing<br />

garden equipment from the<br />

front of properties. She said both<br />

her neighbours on Wildberry St<br />

have had items stolen from their<br />

gardens.<br />

“[The planter boxes] are very<br />

heavy so at least two people are<br />

working together,” the post said.<br />

Miss Oakley told <strong>Pegasus</strong> <strong>Post</strong> a<br />

parcel also went missing from her<br />

doorstep.<br />

Another resident commented<br />

on her post: “It could be the same<br />

b*****ds that took my neighbour’s<br />

concrete birdbath. Hers went missing<br />

one night and it’s so heavy.”<br />

•HAVE YOUR SAY: If you<br />

Life member<br />

cuts ribbon<br />

to new facility<br />

•From page 1<br />

Said club member Nigel<br />

Humphreys: “They have been reconfigured<br />

into a great facility.”<br />

A number of club members<br />

and friends were at the opening.<br />

People checked out the<br />

facilities in the second building<br />

and were shown around by<br />

committee members.<br />

The ribbon-cutting at the front<br />

steps was carried out by club life<br />

member Ray O’Brien, marking<br />

the new clubrooms officially<br />

open.<br />

Mr O’Brien and his wife Nola<br />

flew down from Whangarei<br />

especially for the opening.<br />

This was followed by an<br />

opening day race.<br />

Mr Humphreys said: “All the<br />

systems worked well in the new<br />

clubrooms with no reports of<br />

issues and our expansive kitchen<br />

was put through a good test also,<br />

proving the layout was up to the<br />

task. The only thing was coming<br />

to grips with how some of the<br />

new appliances worked.”<br />

“We still have a few things<br />

to finish and some final<br />

fundraising to do, but we look<br />

forward to the coming season<br />

with great anticipation.”<br />

Dedication to school breakfasts recognised<br />

• By Claire Booker<br />

NORTHCOTE community<br />

breakfast volunteers have<br />

been recognised for their<br />

dedication with an ‘unsung<br />

heroes’ award.<br />

Charlotte Clark and Angie<br />

Durey from Neighbourhood<br />

Links were runners-up in the<br />

South Island Section of the<br />

Unsung Hero Award for their<br />

work with the breakfast club at<br />

Northcote School.<br />

At the club, students and their<br />

families are provided with a<br />

healthy breakfast of porridge, cereal,<br />

toast, baked beans, yoghurt,<br />

fruit and Milo.<br />

“Charlotte’s porridge has<br />

become quite famous, certainly<br />

one of the favourites of breakfast<br />

club. We like to do special<br />

breakfasts for the last day of each<br />

term, random pancake days and<br />

we are excited to be planning<br />

our second Christmas breakfast<br />

again,” Miss Durey said.<br />

Northcote School principal<br />

Justin Perriam nominated the<br />

women for the award, who have<br />

been involved with the meal<br />

since May 2018.<br />

“We had identified a need<br />

within the school community to<br />

offer breakfast to some students<br />

who were not having it at home.<br />

It allows us to ensure that no<br />

child needs to start the school<br />

day hungry,” he said.<br />

The women said the most<br />

rewarding part of being involved<br />

with the club is the smiles, hugs<br />

and stories they are told daily.<br />

“For us, the value of connection<br />

with our community is the<br />

biggest reward,” they said.<br />

Miss Clark said the two<br />

women were surprised to receive<br />

the award.<br />

“We both were very surprised.<br />

But to be acknowledged and<br />

appreciated by the children of<br />

our community was probably the<br />

tear jerker,” she said.<br />

Miss Durey said receiving the<br />

award was “huge.”<br />

“I never thought I would<br />

receive anything this special. I<br />

certainly didn’t realise it meant<br />

this much to the school and the<br />

community. I am very grateful<br />

to them for nominating us,” she<br />

said.<br />

Kickstart manager<br />

About 30 per cent of students<br />

at the school attend the club on a<br />

regular basis.<br />

“It also provides opportunities<br />

for students and their families<br />

to meet and connect with each<br />

other in a welcoming, safe<br />

environment.<br />

“Everyone is welcome, even<br />

if you’ve already had breakfast<br />

at home. It’s about creating<br />

a sense of community,” Mr<br />

Perriam said.

Volunteer picks up skills<br />

AFRICA SEEMED a world away<br />

to Fil Jansons.<br />

That was until he spent seven<br />

months volunteering as a tradie<br />

on board the world’s largest<br />

civilian hospital ship earlier this<br />

year.<br />

The New Brighton resident<br />

travelled to Guinea, West Africa,<br />

to join the Mercy Ships technical<br />

crew.<br />

Mr Jansons believes tradies<br />

are often hidden heroes, and on<br />

the Mercy Ship they fill essential<br />

roles that do not often come<br />

to mind when people think of<br />

hospital ships.<br />

His work as an electronics<br />

technician is vital to the Mercy<br />

Ship functioning as a floating<br />

first-world hospital in the developing<br />

nations the charity serves.<br />

Being on the ship benefited Mr<br />

Jansons greatly.<br />

“My days were never the same.<br />

I had the opportunity to work<br />

on variety of systems, machines<br />

and equipment, ranging from<br />

auto fire detection systems, fuel<br />

purifiers, cranes, main distribution<br />

switchboards, medical<br />

air monitoring systems, many<br />

marine electronics, and much<br />

more. As a technician at home I<br />

would need to work for several<br />

different industries to gain that<br />

sort of experience,” he said.<br />

BENEFICIAL: Fil Jansons spent seven months volunteering as<br />

a tradie for Mercy Ships on board the world’s largest civilian<br />

hospital ship. ​<br />

Mr Jansons was personally<br />

impacted by the faith-based<br />

charity’s mission to deliver free<br />

essential surgery to West Africa<br />

poor, as well as being challenged<br />

professionally.<br />

“The broad range of people<br />

that I met on board was inspiring.<br />

On the technical side, I<br />

found more confidence in dealing<br />

with machines and systems<br />

I’d never handled before, and<br />

was able to pass on what I knew<br />

to other people.”<br />

St Bede’s gets<br />

its chapel back<br />

A SEVEN-YEAR, $20 million<br />

rebuild and refurbishment of<br />

the St Bede’s College chapel is<br />

complete.<br />

Devastated by the 2011<br />

earthquake, the chapel was<br />

demolished. For seven years<br />

a temporary chapel was used,<br />

while funding was secured to<br />

enable the rebuild. The campus<br />

master plan was re-designed to<br />

place the chapel at the forefront<br />

of the school.<br />

Rector Justin Boyle said the<br />

chapel is the college’s most important<br />

building.<br />

“The return of the chapel is<br />

a clear statement of who we<br />

are and what we stand for, a<br />

Catholic, Marist College, and we<br />

welcome its return,” said Rector<br />

Boyle.<br />

“The chapel is the soul of our<br />

school, connecting with our<br />

newly-refurbished performing<br />

arts centre and in keeping with<br />

the historic buildings that dot<br />

our grounds.<br />

“These two wonderful new<br />

buildings reflect our holistic<br />

approach to education, supporting<br />

boys to develop into wellrounded<br />

men,” he said.<br />

Wilkie & Bruce Architects<br />

designed the new chapel in a collegiate<br />

Gothic style to integrate<br />

with the original 1920s buildings<br />

of the campus.<br />

“As well as looking like it’s<br />

always been there, the new<br />

building references the original<br />

by incorporating restored<br />

stained-glass windows, pews,<br />

crucifix and the ornate carved<br />

oak reredos from the old chapel.<br />

“Each of the 12 stained-glass<br />

windows tell their own story,<br />

with the centrepiece being the<br />

Matthew Paul Daly Memorial<br />

Window, which reflects the<br />

school’s origins and values in a<br />

depiction of Mary and the teenage<br />

Christ,” said architect and<br />

certified heritage professional<br />

Alec Bruce.<br />

The chapel build was financed<br />

by more than 400 donors, all<br />

of whom were invited to the<br />

chapel’s opening last week.<br />

A total of $3.5 million was<br />

required for the build, with community<br />

donations coming from<br />

the Society of Mary, the college’s<br />

Board of Proprietors and the<br />

College Foundation.<br />

The Chapel of St Bede was<br />

officially opened last week with a<br />

mass by Bishop Paul Martin.<br />

American dessert to top off Kiwi main<br />

This well-known Florida<br />

dessert can be made even<br />

better with a box of fresh<br />

New Zealand limes<br />

Lime Pie<br />

Serves 8-10<br />

Ingredients<br />

250g digestive biscuits, well<br />

crushed<br />

100g butter, melted<br />

Filling<br />

390g sweetened condensed milk<br />

4 egg yolks<br />

1 tsp lime zest<br />

½ cup fresh lime juice<br />

Pinch of salt<br />

300ml cream, whipped<br />

Equipment<br />

20cm pie dish<br />

Directions<br />

Heat the oven to 180 deg C.<br />

Begin by crushing the biscuits<br />

to a fine crumb.<br />

Add the melted butter and mix<br />

well so all the crumbs are coated<br />

in the butter. Press firmly into<br />

the pie dish covering the sides.<br />

Bake for 15min. Remove and<br />

cool.<br />

To make the filling, mix the<br />

condensed milk with the egg<br />

yolks, lime juice and zest. Mix<br />

thoroughly and pour into the<br />

prepared pie crust.<br />

Bake the pie for 15min or until<br />

set. Remove from the oven and<br />

cool completely.<br />

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours,<br />

but preferably overnight.<br />

When ready to serve,<br />

traditionally it is covered with<br />

cream or you can serve it<br />

alongside if desired.<br />

The pie is a great way to top<br />

off a classic South Island main<br />

with meat and three veg<br />

Venison fillet<br />

Serves 4<br />

Ingredients<br />

850g venison fillet<br />

500ml extra virgin olive oil<br />

2 sprigs rosemary<br />

1/2 head cauliflower<br />

1 litre cream<br />

8 heads bok choi<br />

100ml tamari or soy sauce<br />

250g carrots<br />

500g agria potatoes<br />

2 litres beef stock<br />

1 litre chicken stock<br />

500ml red wine (pinot<br />

noir)<br />

Salt, butter and cooking oil<br />

Directions<br />

First cut the venison fillet into<br />

four 200g portions and marinate<br />

in olive oil and rosemary.<br />

Overnight is best, but for at least<br />

a couple of hours.<br />

Put stock and red wine in a<br />

pot and reduce until medium<br />

thickness and sticky, should<br />

have a deep meaty flavour. This<br />

may take an hour or so of rapid<br />

boiling/reduction.<br />

Slice potatoes as thin as<br />

possible and layer into a baking<br />

dish with a light sprinkle of salt<br />

every few layers.<br />

Bring cream to a boil and pour<br />

over potatoes, place in oven at<br />

165 deg C for about one hour<br />

or until golden and cooked<br />

through.<br />

This can be set aside and<br />

reheated or served fresh.<br />

Peel carrots, toss in olive oil<br />

and season. These can cook in<br />

the oven with the potatoes, and<br />

should be golden and soft to the<br />

bite when finished.<br />

Boil cauliflower florets in salty<br />

water with a dash of cream or<br />

milk in the water to make it<br />

cloudy.<br />

Boil for 5-8min until soft, then<br />

blitz in food processor with a<br />

few spoons of butter and salt to<br />

taste until smooth. This can be<br />

easily reheated in a saucepan.<br />

Sear venison in cooking oil in a<br />

hot skillet then transfer to oven<br />

for 5min Saute bok choi in a hot<br />

pan and deglaze with tamari –<br />

that should steam the bok choi<br />

through and add a nice sticky<br />

glaze. Serve cauliflower puree,<br />

venison and jus (gravy) on one<br />

plate and the sides to share are<br />

served in separate bowls.<br />

Serve with red wine vinegar on<br />

the side to help cut through the<br />

gaminess of the venison.<br />

WITH MARY IN FAITH<br />

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA<br />

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL<br />

This term has been a wonderful celebration<br />

of Marian’s Special Character and school<br />

culture. When girls are involved in school<br />

life, which is rich with celebrations and<br />

traditions, we see improvements in student<br />

learning, participation and wellbeing.<br />

This term we had Feast Day, which is the<br />

most anticipated religious event on the<br />

Marian College calendar and includes<br />

Mass, a house group singing competition,<br />

talent quest and plenty of fun.<br />

Our kapa haka team has combined with<br />

brother school St Bede’s College to<br />

produce a ‘super group’ which gave a<br />

moving performance at the Secondary<br />

Schools’ Kapa Haka Whakataetae<br />

Regionals. For many, it was a ‘first time on<br />

the stage’ experience.<br />

We are also underway exploring our<br />

school’s cultural narrative. As well as<br />

relocating Marian College in 2023 and<br />

all we represent, building a new school<br />

involves weaving the history and story<br />

of mana whenua into the fabric of our<br />

buildings and environment.<br />

On a recent staff only day, we traced the<br />

journey of the school; key women, role<br />

models from our past and shared stories<br />

and memories of the school from its<br />

beginning up to today. We look forward<br />

to future work on our cultural narrative as<br />

plans for our new school develop.<br />

the girls, coaches, manager, parents, caregivers, staff and supporters – what a<br />

fantastic result!<br />

Rising Japanese rugby star, Hitomi Oka,<br />

has enjoyed the International Rugby<br />

Programme (IRP) so much, she is staying<br />

on at Marian College.<br />

“Both in terms of my rugby and my life<br />

in general, I think I have become far more<br />

resilient and self-driven,” Hitomi says.<br />

“What I like best about Marian College is<br />

that teachers and students are very kind and<br />

welcoming to me.”<br />

Marian College Principal Mary-Lou<br />

Davidson says the IRP is an amazing<br />

opportunity for students from all over<br />

the world to come together for high<br />

performance sport development.<br />

“Our Marian students are exposed to the<br />

opportunities sport at this level brings.<br />

They make connections through the<br />

enjoyment of playing sport, develop<br />

manaakitanga and make long-lasting<br />

friendships,” Mrs Davidson says.<br />

Marian has partnered with St Bede’s<br />

College to host the International Rugby<br />

Programme (IRP) from <strong>2019</strong>. The 17-yearold<br />

high-performance programme makes<br />

use of the latest technologies and practice.<br />

International students participate in a<br />

combination of rugby training, coaching<br />

and academic learning.<br />

Thinking about tea and what to have on the<br />

themselves – Generous food portions tops the<br />

list, followed by consistency of taste and high<br />

quality ingredients. Their service is always<br />

friendly and accommodating.<br />

Check out their diversified menu including<br />

customer favourites such as Phad Thai chicken.<br />

Curries galore with so many choices: green,<br />

red, mussaman, penang and more. Other tasty<br />

choices include crispy chicken with cashews,<br />

pork wonton and curry puff entrees which are<br />

both made fresh in-house. Don’t forget the stir<br />

fried vegetables with chicken or beef and a satay<br />

sauce. If you are in the mood for spice, try their<br />

stir fried vegetables with basil and chilli, or<br />

chicken and fried rice.<br />

Have a look at their full menu on their website<br />

or Facebook. All their meals are served mild,<br />

but the chefs are very happy to spice things up<br />

a bit if like spice, so don’t hesitate to ask when<br />

ordering. Gluten free, no problem. Vegetarian<br />

and vegan meals, they can accommodate.<br />

Don’t see what you would like on the menu,<br />

Monthai is a family run takeaway with<br />

Chef Mesa and other family members behind<br />

the mouth-watering dishes. Their dishes<br />

have served patrons from Christchurch and<br />

Wellington for more than 20 years.<br />

Monthai is still located in their original<br />

location in North New Brighton where they<br />

business owners they had to bounce back after<br />

the earthquake.<br />

“We want to say a big thank you to all our<br />

customers. They make every day worthwhile”,<br />

says owner Neil Thornton.<br />

There is plenty of parking at the rear of the<br />

been totally refurbished.<br />

Monthai Takeaway is just that, they specialise<br />

in takeaway, but do have a few tables if you<br />

would like to dine in.<br />

A private elevated location on Valley<br />

Road this 1970’s architecturally designed<br />

home by Lucking and Vial is waiting for<br />

a new owner. On entering the front door<br />

the first thing you notice is the light that<br />

streams into the living rooms, together<br />

with the popular exposed beams of that<br />

era making you feel instantly at home.<br />

Surrounded by native trees and shrubs<br />

inviting the abundant bird life of Wood<br />

Pigeons, Fantails and Bellbirds, and the<br />

magnificent views, makes you feel like<br />

you’re on holiday every day of the year.<br />

This very spacious home literally has<br />

many layers. A rumpus room and two<br />

bedrooms on the lowest level, ideal for<br />

teenagers to have their own space or rent<br />

as Airbnb. The laundry, bathroom, and a<br />

bedroom on the second; dining, living and<br />

kitchen on third; while on the upper level<br />

is the main bedroom, ensuite and study.<br />

There are several outdoor spaces, a<br />

paved sheltered barbecue area with the<br />

added bonus of a pizza oven to enjoy al<br />

fresco dining with family and friends, a<br />

deck off the third level for a read of the<br />

paper with a cup of coffee in hand, or the<br />

surrounding area including the stepped<br />

pathway to wander through nature.<br />

Zoned for Cashmere Primary and<br />

Cashmere High Schools and close to all<br />

amenities.<br />

A walkway right outside your door, and<br />

the sense of seclusion and tranquillity on<br />

entering the property, what more could<br />

you ask for.<br />

continuing education<br />

gain a<br />

second chance<br />

at ncea<br />

Each year up to 10,000 young people<br />

in New Zealand leave school with little<br />

or no formal qualifications. Many teens<br />

disengage with school as the teaching<br />

environment simply does not suit their<br />

style of learning. Research shows that<br />

without a qualification they are more likely<br />

to have difficulties entering the workforce,<br />

as most jobs nowadays require NCEA and<br />

a driver’s licence.<br />

Many early school leavers unfortunately<br />

believe that secondary school is the only<br />

way to earn their NCEA qualifications.<br />

This misconception is particularly<br />

concerning for those young people<br />

who don’t necessarily ‘fit’ the schooling<br />

environment, but still want to find<br />

employment or complete certain industry<br />

training courses for which an NCEA<br />

qualification is a pre-requisite.<br />

Every year dozens of young people<br />

are getting a second chance at earning<br />

NCEA credits after leaving secondary<br />

school, thanks to Vision College. The<br />

Private Training Establishment (PTE) are<br />

spreading awareness to the young people<br />

in the community, making sure they know<br />

that achieving their NCEA levels outside<br />

of school is within their reach.<br />

Vision College’s free ‘Ultimate’<br />

programme offers students without NCEA<br />

the opportunity to gain NCEA Level 1<br />

and 2, their driver’s licence, and a range of<br />

skills designed to make them employable.<br />

Students earn their NCEA credits in<br />

a more practical way, through games,<br />

hands-on activities, and by applying their<br />

learning to real life situations. Students<br />

also get to experience tasters of different<br />

career and study paths to help them<br />

decide where they would like to head after<br />

completing ‘Ultimate’.<br />

School leavers can also enrol in<br />

Security, Early Childcare or Business<br />

Administration courses to earn not only<br />

credits towards NCEA Level 3, but also<br />

a career qualification in just six months.<br />

These courses are all free for anyone aged<br />

between 16 and 19. Upon completion<br />

students can even pathway onto higher<br />

study with Vision College in Web and<br />

Software Design, Early Childhood<br />

Education, and Counselling.<br />

Vision College are enrolling now for<br />

2020! For more information on their<br />

courses, call 0800 834 834, txt “VISION”<br />

INDEPENDENT<br />

COASTAL<br />

YOUR VOTE<br />

YOUR VOICE<br />

Authorised by James Daniels, 6 Betula Place, Parklands, Coastal<br />

One of New Brighton’s favourite sons, James Daniels is asking for your vote in the upcoming<br />

Christchurch City Council elections. James is running as an Independent in the Coastal Ward<br />

and promises vigorous, vocal and local representation in the Council chambers.<br />

Last week you should have received<br />

voting papers in the mail for the<br />

Christchurch City Council election.<br />

It’s a postal vote and the forms are<br />

due back by October 12.<br />

I grew up here, still live here and will grow old<br />

here. I love it here. I’m upset about the way we, as<br />

a coastal community, have been neglected and<br />

disrespected over the last nine years in particular.<br />

The Council needs people with proven, good<br />

governance skills because we have some<br />

strategic, yet complex, difficult decisions to make.<br />

I’ll bring energy, experience, expertise and a fresh<br />

perspective to the process.<br />

I will remain visible, be transparent and<br />

communicate with my community while listening<br />

carefully to the issues that affect us.

Hall. It was so energising to be in a room with many<br />

people I know. I spoke about my feelings for this<br />

very special part of Christchurch and admitted that<br />

I don’t know all the answers but am ready, willing<br />

and able to ask the hard questions – if elected.<br />

The Daniels family first lived in<br />

Union Street then Gresham Terrace.<br />

After getting married at St Faiths,<br />

I lived in Collingwood Street, Rae<br />

Lane, Brentwood Street, Marriotts<br />

Road and still live in Betula Place.<br />

I went to South, Central and North<br />

New Brighton schools and my<br />

children were born and brought up<br />

here. I know this area, its history, its<br />

issues and the fact we’ve been let<br />

down by the city’s governors.<br />

We need a new, enthusiastic and<br />

experienced representative in the<br />

Council chambers.<br />

I’ve had a great education and career<br />

in this city with many high points, but<br />

the current low point is the state of our<br />

Ward. This is the most beautiful part of<br />

Christchurch with so much potential.<br />

We deserve better roads, footpaths,<br />

drainage and basic infrastructure.<br />

The Regeneration Plan will affect<br />

the future of our community so we<br />

need a fresh face and energised<br />

voice to advocate and agitate for<br />

the Coastal Ward.<br />

I have more<br />

than 30 years<br />

of governance<br />

experience.<br />

I have had a long and successful broadcasting career.<br />

For many years I partnered with Ken Ellis, and more<br />

recently I worked with Hilary Muir co-hosting The<br />

Breeze breakfast show for four years.

MEET SOME OF MY FAMILY – This is me and my beautiful wife, Dianne, and my in-laws, Peter and Aileen,<br />

standing outside their house in North Beach that they built in the 1950’s. Most of my life, past, present and<br />

future, is tied to the Coastal Ward.<br />

MY SKILLS WILL MAKE<br />

A DIFFERENCE<br />

If I get elected I promise to<br />

retire my campaign shirt!<br />

Many people only know me because<br />

of my broadcasting career. Not many<br />

know I have more than 30 years of<br />

governance experience covering<br />

commercial, charitable, community<br />

and not-for-profit organisations. I<br />

was a foundation director of More<br />

FM, served on the tribal council of<br />

Ngāi Tahu for its first 19 years, am<br />

currently in my fifth year on the board<br />

of a $700m property company, had<br />

six years on the national sporting<br />

organisation Touch NZ and am on<br />

the board of Te Papa Tongarewa,<br />

the Museum of New Zealand.<br />

I am also well-connected locally<br />

and nationally, so combining my<br />

communication skills with my<br />

experience and expertise, I will<br />

make a difference for our<br />

Coastal community.

PEGASUS POST<br />

VOTE<br />

JAMES DANIELS<br />

INDEPENDENT<br />

COASTAL<br />

I’ve spoken to thousands of people when doorknocking,<br />

being stopped at the supermarket,<br />

service station or on the street and they have<br />

common concerns about the lack of action and<br />

communication regarding repairs, water-related issues and<br />

rate rises.<br />

WHAT I PLEDGE<br />

The proposed rate increases over the next ten<br />

years are distressing. I will openly oppose any<br />

increases until convinced it’s necessary.<br />

I’m not wasting energy on what happened (or didn’t<br />

happen) over the last nine years. If elected, in the<br />

first 90 days I will do a deep-dive stocktake on the<br />

current situation regarding the Coastal Ward (the<br />

Regeneration Plan is a positive!). In the New Year I<br />

will come back to the community and call a series<br />

of meetings to tell you face-to-face ‘where we’re<br />

at’, then we will decide ‘where we want to go’.<br />

The only promise I make is that I will work very hard.<br />

ONE LAST THING<br />

• People’s Choice Labour asked me to join them.<br />

I said no.<br />

• Local government should be about local<br />

decisions, being made as close to the<br />

community as possible.<br />

• Local decisions should be made by local,<br />

independent people who have no relationship<br />

to Central Government.<br />

• Otherwise, get rid of local government and run<br />

Christchurch city from Wellington.<br />
