Yacht club launches new headquarters

THE PLEASANT Point

Yacht Club has opened its

new clubrooms.

Since the September 4,

2010, earthquake destroyed

the club’s old headquarters,

it has been operating out of

five shipping containers in

South New Brighton Park,

with no power, showers,

toilets or kitchen.

The new facility sits in the

same location, and although

the club was not able to build

its ideal facility due to a lack

of funds, it purchased two

relocatable buildings from

Shirley 108yo’s secret to long life

• By Claire Booker

NINA BROWN has never

smoked or drank and loves her

greens.

And last week, she celebrated

her 108th birthday.

Nina, who is understood to

be the oldest person in New

Zealand, had a beaming smile

as she cut her birthday cake at

Windsorcare Retirement Village

in Shirley.

She has been a passionate

“greenie” all her life, her nephew

Murray Brown said.

“Nina was way green before

green was cool. When she

washed her dishes, she would

use a tub of water and Sunlight

soap. Once the dishes were

clean, she would use the soapy

water to keep the aphids off her

roses,” he said.

Nina has never had any health

issues, other than a couple of

sprained ankles from Scottish

Country Dancing which she did

until she was 90, and a double

hip replacement four years ago.

She also never married.

She would tell the staff at the

retirement village: “I’m going to

be the oldest New Zealander one

day.”

Nina studied to be a teacher

when she was 16 and received a

Master of Arts in english from

Canterbury University.

She worked as a teacher in

England in the 1930s, until she

was sent home when World War

2 broke out.

“Her passions were teaching

and travelling,” Mr Brown said.

When she arrived back

in New Zealand, she taught

students throughout the war,

and although her speciality was

english, the shortage of teachers

saw her teaching a range of

different subjects, including

woodwork. Nina never drank

alcohol, but Mr Brown said she

always raved about his custard

which had a healthy dash of

brandy in it.

At her party yesterday,

Nina enjoyed a cup of tea and

birthday cake with some friends

and received a hand-written

card from Prime Minister

Jacinda Arden, and cards from

Lianne Dalziel, the Queen and

Government House – which she

read without any assistance.

Meanwhile, New Zealand’s

oldest man, Ron Hermanns,

who also lives in Christchurch,

will celebrate his 108th birthday

this week.

In Brief

SPEED SIGN REQUEST

Advice has been sought about the

possibility of installing flashing

speed signs on Gayhurst Rd

north of the Gayhurst Bridge in

Dallington. The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board raised the

idea at its last meeting as a way

to try and stop people driving

dangerously on the road.

COMMUNITY GRANTS

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board has granted

$4000 to the Avon Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust towards the

Bexley Reserve Enhancement

Project. Eastern Community

Sport and Recreation Inc

received $8000 towards the

Eastern Community Activator

programme wages and

$6000 towards its Early Birds

Programme co-ordinator wages.

The grants came from the board’s

Discretionary Response Fund.

FAMILY FUN DAY

The Salvation Army will be

holding a family fun day in

Riccarton this Saturday. The

Salvation Army band will be

playing, there will be a free

sausage sizzle and free lollies and

a lucky dip for children. There will

also be sale items in the store. The

event will be held at the Salvation

Our Dogs, Ourselves

The Story of a Singular Bond by

Alexandra Horowitz

We keep dogs and are kept by them. We love dogs and (we

assume) we are loved by them. We buy them sweaters, toys,

shoes; we are concerned with their social lives, their food, and their

health. The story of humans and dogs is thousands of years old but

is far from understood. In Our Dogs, Ourselves, Alexandra Horowitz

explores all aspects of this unique and complex interspecies pairing.

As Horowitz considers the current culture of dogdom, she reveals

the odd, surprising, and contradictory ways we live with dogs. We

celebrate their individuality but breed them for sameness. Despite

our deep emotional relationships with dogs, legally they are property

to be bought, sold, abandoned, or euthanized as we wish. Even the

way we speak to our dogs is at once perplexing and delightful.

In thirteen thoughtful and charming chapters, Our Dogs, Ourselves

affirms our profound affection for this most charismatic of animals

and opens our eyes to the companions at our sides as never before.

Native Son

The Writer’s Memoir by Witi Ihimaera

The revealing sequel to the award-winning memoir Maori Boy.

This is the second volume of memoir by this remarkable Maori

writer and of the living myths that inspired him at the beginning of

his career. Look at him, the young man on the cover. The year is

1972, he is 28, his first book is about to be published, and he has

every reason to kick up his heels.

But behind that joyful smile, and the image of a writer footing it in

the Pakeha world, there is another narrative, one that Witi has not

told before. The story of a native son, struggling to find a place, a

voice and an identity, and to put a secret past to rest. This sequel

to his award-winning memoir picks up where Maori Boy stopped,

following Witi through his triumphs and failures at school and

university, to experimenting sexually, searching for love and purpose

and to becoming our first Maori novelist.

Ian McKellen: The Biography

by Garry O’Connor

The intimate and definitive biography of Ian McKellen, theatrical

knight and a national treasure.

Few actors achieve in their lifetime what Sir Ian McKellen has.

A repertoire of vast commercial success coupled with critically

acclaimed and authoritative Shakespearian roles. A man whose

gargantuan personality and varied achievements inspire both

admiration and affection. McKellen has been feted and admired

in every country across the globe, and has been knighted by, and

received the Companionship of Honour from Queen Elizabeth II. He

is an icon of, and ardent campaigner in, the cause for LGBT rights.

Many of us know of McKellen through his depiction of Gandalf in

LORD OF THE RINGS. Garry O’Connor’s definitive biography reveals

the man behind McKellen the actor. The inside story of the person

himself: a constantly developing drama and a work in progress. Yet

Garry O’Connor pulls no punches: some of his revelations may be

controversial to his fans, even explosive, given McKellen’s constant

ability to shock and surprise.

“It’s all about celebrating really

good, tasty food that just

happens to be meat-free.”

Bid to mitigate corridor congestion

• By Claire Booker

BUS LANES may be prioritised

to alleviate congestion from a

motorway extension being built

through St Albans.

The Northern Motorway is

being extended through to QEII

Drive and Cranford St and when

completed will effectively slice

St Albans in half. It will also

add an extra

48,000 vehicles

a day.

Residents

have tried

to fight the

extension, but

all that can be

Mark Wilson

done now is

to find ways

to alleviate

the amount of traffic coming

through the suburb.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

and Papanui-Innes community

boards listened to emotional

and angry residents over

the proposal at a special meeting

a fortnight ago. Then four days

later they made their recommendations

and said prioritising

bus use will help. They said this

should take precedence over

installing a clearway. A clearway

is a no stopping area that allows

traffic to flow more freely.

Cranford St was planned to

FLOW: The proposed clearways on Cranford St may be

used for public transport to help mitigate the effects of the

Christchurch Northern Corridor through St Albans.

be used as a clearway once the

extension opens next year. But

with the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote and Papanui-Innes

community boards recommendation,

this means the bus lane

could take priority.

The boards also asked city

council staff to look at park and

ride options near QEII Drive.

The decision will now go to

the city council at its meeting on

Thursday.

Papanui-Innes board member

and city councillor Mike Davidson

said the boards were never

going to be able to create a perfect

outcome for the community

“So what we’re trying to

achieve is the best outcome with

the limited ability we do have.

No one wants the motorway, if

we had made a decision today

on whether we should have done

a motorway, it would have never

happened,” he said.

All board members apart from

Linwood-Central board member

and city councillor Yani

Johanson voted in favour of the

‘If we had made a

decision today on

whether we should

have done a motorway,

it would never have

happened’

– Mike Davidson

recommendations.

“I’m really concerned that the

plan is actually going to create a

lot of problems on other streets,”

Cr Johanson said.

Cr Johanson thinks the

improvements are not the right

approach and wasn’t convinced

Environment Canterbury would

fund the proposed public transport

lanes on Cranford St.

“I can’t see any likelihood that

Ecan would have the money

to be able to fund more public

transport,” he said.

St Albans resident Mark

Wilson said overall he is feeling

good about the recommendations.

“They will prepare the road

for more traffic, but they won’t

allow that traffic to have two or

four lanes flow on. That’s the

minimum really that we’ve been

going on about. I think it’s a

good decision,” he said.

SOLUTION: Parking

restrictions have been

approved to stop congestion

in streets surrounding the

shared Shirley Boys’ High and

Avonside Girls’ High campus.

New measures

will be analysed

•From page 1

Cr Livingstone said the school

is in the busy Queen Elizabeth II

Park area, with the Christchurch

School of Gymnastics and Taiora:

QEII Recreation Sport Centre on

site.

“If people can’t get on-site

parking at those three places,

then you’ve got pressure on the

surrounding streets.”

He said the effectiveness of

the measures approved will be

analysed and could be increased if

parking issues continue.

Reducing congestion has

been a priority for the schools

recently.

In July, three new bus stops

were approved on Bridge St,

Breezes Rd and Avondale Rd to

reduce the number of students

and parents driving to school.

MAXIMISE

THE PROFIT FROM YOUR

'AS IS, WHERE IS' ASSET

It would seem that the current real estate market

in Christchurch is rife with ‘As Is, Where Is’ experts, and

private property speculators whose clear intention is to make

substantial profit, offering to pay vendors the least they can,

without the opportunity for home owners to test the entire

market in a competitive environment.

With over 600 ‘As Is, Uninsured’ sales to our name, Harcourts gold

leads the way across Canterbury in volume and experience when

it comes to marketing earthquake damaged homes. If you are

considering selling an ‘As Is’ property, we would embrace the

opportunity to empower you with the right knowledge to allow you

to make an educated and informed decision regarding the future of

your property.

Selling damaged properties requires specialist skills and expertise.

Unique to the post-earthquake Christchurch real estate market,

these transactions involve the selling of properties where the owner

has cash settled EQC and private insurance claims, and is retaining

these funds rather than carrying out earthquake repairs. Owners

may choose to take this option for a variety of reasons, and it does

present purchasers with an opportunity to secure property below

current market insured values. Over the past few years, the sale and

purchase of ‘As Is, Uninsured’ homes has become commonplace,

with a broad cross-section of purchasers now active in this market.

When it comes to selling these homes, it is important to follow

correct procedures to ensure that you, as an owner, are not left

legally or financially exposed. The only way to genuinely determine

the true market value of a property is to place all interested parties

in a competitive environment, using our well-honed marketing

template and extensive database of buyers.

For further information, contact one of our coastal offices at

Parklands or New Brighton today.

Reserves benefit from planting events

COMMUNITY volunteers

have helped plant at least

29,000 shrubs and trees in

Christchurch parks and reserves

in the past year.

Planting days have taken

place in areas including the Port

Hills, Halswell Quarry Park and

Travis Wetland Nature Heritage

Park.

This work has a value of about

$1.5 million.

The work has been carried

out through the city council’s

community partnership programme

which aims to boost

community-led action in the

city’s green spaces.

It includes running volunteer

planting days, clean-ups, and

working with schools to encourage

kids to help improve their

local parks and waterways.

The programme is now in its

second year of operation and

receives an annual grant from

the Community Resilience Fund

for two years.

Recognising the work of local

volunteers is timely because this

week is the 50th anniversary of

conservation week – a national

celebration that encourages

people to get involved in nature

and help take care of it.

There were more than 38,000

volunteer hours recorded

across all city council parks

GROWING: Volunteers like this group at Travis Wetland have

helped plant 29,000 shrubs and trees in the last financial year. ​

programmes in the last financial

year, a 27 per cent increase on

the previous year.

This represents 29,000 plants

and trees put into the ground,

an outcome that would normally

cost between $1.1 million

and $1.5 million to achieve.

City council manager of

parks, programmes and

partnerships Kate Russell said

the fund is a great example of

what can be achieved when

the city council is able to boost

community involvement and

volunteering.

“The numbers only tell part of

the story, the significance of the

stories and goodwill generated

can’t be overestimated. It really

nurtures active citizenship. The

feelings of guardianship that

have been generated through

this work are where the true

value lie.

“The programme caters for

people who want to do one-off

service in their community

‘The feelings of

guardianship that have

been generated through

this work are where the

true values lie’

parks as well as those who

see themselves as longer term

guardians of their parks and

who give hundreds of voluntary

hours individually each year.”

As word spreads, staff are

receiving a steadily increasing

number of inquiries about

projects that can be supported

through the fund, she said.

In 2018, a total of 62 events

took place, including 20 that

were one-off events and more

than 40 that have sparked an

ongoing commitment with multiple

events over the year and

more planned in the future.

Ms Russell believes the numbers

will grow even more when

a city-wide volunteer database

system is introduced and figures

can be more accurately reported.

The community partnership

programme is managed by a

co-ordinator and a full-time

schools support field ranger.

With current funding coming

to an end by the end of 2020,

the city council’s parks team is

exploring ways to create a more

permanent programme, she said.

Thieves target

garden items

in Woolston

• By Jess Gibson

IT APPEARS there are thieves in

Woolston with a green thumb and

sticky fingers.

A concrete birdbath, several

planter boxes and urns have gone

missing from properties in the

suburb over the past month.

Resident Freya Oakley posted on

the Woolston Community United

page recently, warning residents to

keep an eye out for thieves stealing

garden equipment from the

front of properties. She said both

her neighbours on Wildberry St

have had items stolen from their

gardens.

“[The planter boxes] are very

heavy so at least two people are

working together,” the post said.

Miss Oakley told Pegasus Post a

parcel also went missing from her

doorstep.

Another resident commented

on her post: “It could be the same

b*****ds that took my neighbour’s

concrete birdbath. Hers went missing

one night and it’s so heavy.”

Life member

cuts ribbon

to new facility

•From page 1

Said club member Nigel

Humphreys: “They have been reconfigured

into a great facility.”

A number of club members

and friends were at the opening.

People checked out the

facilities in the second building

and were shown around by

committee members.

The ribbon-cutting at the front

steps was carried out by club life

member Ray O’Brien, marking

the new clubrooms officially

open.

Mr O’Brien and his wife Nola

flew down from Whangarei

especially for the opening.

This was followed by an

opening day race.

Mr Humphreys said: “All the

systems worked well in the new

clubrooms with no reports of

issues and our expansive kitchen

was put through a good test also,

proving the layout was up to the

task. The only thing was coming

to grips with how some of the

new appliances worked.”

“We still have a few things

to finish and some final

fundraising to do, but we look

forward to the coming season

with great anticipation.”

Dedication to school breakfasts recognised

• By Claire Booker

NORTHCOTE community

breakfast volunteers have

been recognised for their

dedication with an ‘unsung

heroes’ award.

Charlotte Clark and Angie

Durey from Neighbourhood

Links were runners-up in the

South Island Section of the

Unsung Hero Award for their

work with the breakfast club at

Northcote School.

At the club, students and their

families are provided with a

healthy breakfast of porridge, cereal,

toast, baked beans, yoghurt,

fruit and Milo.

“Charlotte’s porridge has

become quite famous, certainly

one of the favourites of breakfast

club. We like to do special

breakfasts for the last day of each

term, random pancake days and

we are excited to be planning

our second Christmas breakfast

again,” Miss Durey said.

Northcote School principal

Justin Perriam nominated the

women for the award, who have

been involved with the meal

since May 2018.

“We had identified a need

within the school community to

offer breakfast to some students

who were not having it at home.

It allows us to ensure that no

child needs to start the school

day hungry,” he said.

The women said the most

rewarding part of being involved

with the club is the smiles, hugs

and stories they are told daily.

“For us, the value of connection

with our community is the

biggest reward,” they said.

Miss Clark said the two

women were surprised to receive

the award.

“We both were very surprised.

But to be acknowledged and

appreciated by the children of

our community was probably the

tear jerker,” she said.

Miss Durey said receiving the

award was “huge.”

“I never thought I would

receive anything this special. I

certainly didn’t realise it meant

this much to the school and the

community. I am very grateful

to them for nominating us,” she

said.

HONOURS: Charlotte

Durey were

community breakfast

club. They are

Kylie McKay.

About 30 per cent of students

at the school attend the club on a

regular basis.

“It also provides opportunities

for students and their families

to meet and connect with each

other in a welcoming, safe

environment.

“Everyone is welcome, even

if you’ve already had breakfast

at home. It’s about creating

a sense of community,” Mr

Perriam said.

Volunteer picks up skills

AFRICA SEEMED a world away

to Fil Jansons.

That was until he spent seven

months volunteering as a tradie

on board the world’s largest

civilian hospital ship earlier this

year.

The New Brighton resident

travelled to Guinea, West Africa,

to join the Mercy Ships technical

crew.

Mr Jansons believes tradies

are often hidden heroes, and on

the Mercy Ship they fill essential

roles that do not often come

to mind when people think of

hospital ships.

His work as an electronics

technician is vital to the Mercy

Ship functioning as a floating

first-world hospital in the developing

nations the charity serves.

Being on the ship benefited Mr

Jansons greatly.

“My days were never the same.

I had the opportunity to work

on variety of systems, machines

and equipment, ranging from

auto fire detection systems, fuel

purifiers, cranes, main distribution

switchboards, medical

air monitoring systems, many

marine electronics, and much

more. As a technician at home I

would need to work for several

different industries to gain that

sort of experience,” he said.

BENEFICIAL: Fil Jansons spent seven months volunteering as

a tradie for Mercy Ships on board the world’s largest civilian

hospital ship. ​

Mr Jansons was personally

impacted by the faith-based

charity’s mission to deliver free

essential surgery to West Africa

poor, as well as being challenged

professionally.

“The broad range of people

that I met on board was inspiring.

On the technical side, I

found more confidence in dealing

with machines and systems

I’d never handled before, and

was able to pass on what I knew

to other people.”

St Bede’s gets

its chapel back

A SEVEN-YEAR, $20 million

rebuild and refurbishment of

the St Bede’s College chapel is

complete.

Devastated by the 2011

earthquake, the chapel was

demolished. For seven years

a temporary chapel was used,

while funding was secured to

enable the rebuild. The campus

master plan was re-designed to

place the chapel at the forefront

of the school.

Rector Justin Boyle said the

chapel is the college’s most important

building.

“The return of the chapel is

a clear statement of who we

are and what we stand for, a

Catholic, Marist College, and we

welcome its return,” said Rector

Boyle.

“The chapel is the soul of our

school, connecting with our

newly-refurbished performing

arts centre and in keeping with

the historic buildings that dot

our grounds.

“These two wonderful new

buildings reflect our holistic

approach to education, supporting

boys to develop into wellrounded

men,” he said.

Wilkie & Bruce Architects

designed the new chapel in a collegiate

Gothic style to integrate

with the original 1920s buildings

of the campus.

“As well as looking like it’s

always been there, the new

building references the original

by incorporating restored

stained-glass windows, pews,

crucifix and the ornate carved

oak reredos from the old chapel.

“Each of the 12 stained-glass

windows tell their own story,

with the centrepiece being the

Matthew Paul Daly Memorial

Window, which reflects the

school’s origins and values in a

depiction of Mary and the teenage

Christ,” said architect and

certified heritage professional

Alec Bruce.

The chapel build was financed

by more than 400 donors, all

of whom were invited to the

chapel’s opening last week.

A total of $3.5 million was

required for the build, with community

donations coming from

the Society of Mary, the college’s

Board of Proprietors and the

College Foundation.

The Chapel of St Bede was

officially opened last week with a

mass by Bishop Paul Martin.

American dessert to top off Kiwi main

This well-known Florida

dessert can be made even

better with a box of fresh

New Zealand limes

Lime Pie

Serves 8-10

Ingredients

250g digestive biscuits, well

crushed

100g butter, melted

Filling

390g sweetened condensed milk

4 egg yolks

1 tsp lime zest

½ cup fresh lime juice

Pinch of salt

300ml cream, whipped

Equipment

20cm pie dish

Directions

Heat the oven to 180 deg C.

Begin by crushing the biscuits

to a fine crumb.

Add the melted butter and mix

well so all the crumbs are coated

in the butter. Press firmly into

the pie dish covering the sides.

Bake for 15min. Remove and

cool.

To make the filling, mix the

condensed milk with the egg

yolks, lime juice and zest. Mix

thoroughly and pour into the

prepared pie crust.

Bake the pie for 15min or until

set. Remove from the oven and

cool completely.

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours,

but preferably overnight.

When ready to serve,

traditionally it is covered with

cream or you can serve it

alongside if desired.

The pie is a great way to top

off a classic South Island main

with meat and three veg

Venison fillet

Serves 4

Ingredients

850g venison fillet

500ml extra virgin olive oil

2 sprigs rosemary

1/2 head cauliflower

1 litre cream

8 heads bok choi

100ml tamari or soy sauce

250g carrots

500g agria potatoes

2 litres beef stock

1 litre chicken stock

500ml red wine (pinot

noir)

Salt, butter and cooking oil

Directions

First cut the venison fillet into

four 200g portions and marinate

in olive oil and rosemary.

Overnight is best, but for at least

a couple of hours.

Put stock and red wine in a

pot and reduce until medium

thickness and sticky, should

have a deep meaty flavour. This

may take an hour or so of rapid

boiling/reduction.

Slice potatoes as thin as

possible and layer into a baking

dish with a light sprinkle of salt

every few layers.

Bring cream to a boil and pour

over potatoes, place in oven at

165 deg C for about one hour

or until golden and cooked

through.

This can be set aside and

reheated or served fresh.

Peel carrots, toss in olive oil

and season. These can cook in

the oven with the potatoes, and

should be golden and soft to the

bite when finished.

Boil cauliflower florets in salty

water with a dash of cream or

milk in the water to make it

cloudy.

Boil for 5-8min until soft, then

blitz in food processor with a

few spoons of butter and salt to

taste until smooth. This can be

easily reheated in a saucepan.

Sear venison in cooking oil in a

hot skillet then transfer to oven

for 5min Saute bok choi in a hot

pan and deglaze with tamari –

that should steam the bok choi

through and add a nice sticky

glaze. Serve cauliflower puree,

venison and jus (gravy) on one

plate and the sides to share are

served in separate bowls.

Serve with red wine vinegar on

the side to help cut through the

gaminess of the venison.

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

This term has been a wonderful celebration

of Marian’s Special Character and school

culture. When girls are involved in school

life, which is rich with celebrations and

traditions, we see improvements in student

learning, participation and wellbeing.

This term we had Feast Day, which is the

most anticipated religious event on the

Marian College calendar and includes

Mass, a house group singing competition,

talent quest and plenty of fun.

Our kapa haka team has combined with

brother school St Bede’s College to

produce a ‘super group’ which gave a

moving performance at the Secondary

Schools’ Kapa Haka Whakataetae

Regionals. For many, it was a ‘first time on

the stage’ experience.

We are also underway exploring our

school’s cultural narrative. As well as

relocating Marian College in 2023 and

all we represent, building a new school

involves weaving the history and story

of mana whenua into the fabric of our

buildings and environment.

On a recent staff only day, we traced the

journey of the school; key women, role

models from our past and shared stories

and memories of the school from its

beginning up to today. We look forward

to future work on our cultural narrative as

plans for our new school develop.

For the latest Marian news and information,

please check our website and follow us on

Facebook. Enjoy the read!

Rising Japanese rugby star, Hitomi Oka,

has enjoyed the International Rugby

Programme (IRP) so much, she is staying

on at Marian College.

“Both in terms of my rugby and my life

in general, I think I have become far more

resilient and self-driven,” Hitomi says.

“What I like best about Marian College is

that teachers and students are very kind and

welcoming to me.”

Marian College Principal Mary-Lou

Davidson says the IRP is an amazing

opportunity for students from all over

the world to come together for high

performance sport development.

“Our Marian students are exposed to the

opportunities sport at this level brings.

They make connections through the

enjoyment of playing sport, develop

manaakitanga and make long-lasting

friendships,” Mrs Davidson says.

Marian has partnered with St Bede’s

College to host the International Rugby

Programme (IRP) from 2019. The 17-yearold

high-performance programme makes

use of the latest technologies and practice.

International students participate in a

combination of rugby training, coaching

and academic learning.

spoilt for

choice

Thai Takeaway taste the flavour

Thinking about tea and what to have on the

menu? Choose authentic Thai from Monthai

Takeaway! Customer reviews across social

media and online hospitality sites speak for

themselves – Generous food portions tops the

list, followed by consistency of taste and high

quality ingredients. Their service is always

friendly and accommodating.

Check out their diversified menu including

customer favourites such as Phad Thai chicken.

Curries galore with so many choices: green,

red, mussaman, penang and more. Other tasty

choices include crispy chicken with cashews,

pork wonton and curry puff entrees which are

both made fresh in-house. Don’t forget the stir

fried vegetables with chicken or beef and a satay

sauce. If you are in the mood for spice, try their

stir fried vegetables with basil and chilli, or

chicken and fried rice.

Have a look at their full menu on their website

or Facebook. All their meals are served mild,

but the chefs are very happy to spice things up

a bit if like spice, so don’t hesitate to ask when

ordering. Gluten free, no problem. Vegetarian

and vegan meals, they can accommodate.

Don’t see what you would like on the menu,

they will custom make your dish.

Monthai is a family run takeaway with

Chef Mesa and other family members behind

the mouth-watering dishes. Their dishes

have served patrons from Christchurch and

Wellington for more than 20 years.

Monthai is still located in their original

location in North New Brighton where they

opened in April 2010. Like so many other

business owners they had to bounce back after

the earthquake.

“We want to say a big thank you to all our

customers. They make every day worthwhile”,

says owner Neil Thornton.

There is plenty of parking at the rear of the

QEII Shopping Centre and the premises have

been totally refurbished.

Monthai Takeaway is just that, they specialise

in takeaway, but do have a few tables if you

would like to dine in.

Call Monthai Takeaway TODAY 388 0784 and

place your order for the freshest of ingredients

bought on a daily basis and experience a

mouthful of flavour.

Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 4.15pm - 9pm,

closed Monday.

Valley of tranquillity

25 Valley Road, Cashmere

Auction: Thursday, 3 October 2019, Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 2 car-garage | 1 off-street park - Listing Number: BE193366

A private elevated location on Valley

Road this 1970’s architecturally designed

home by Lucking and Vial is waiting for

a new owner. On entering the front door

the first thing you notice is the light that

streams into the living rooms, together

with the popular exposed beams of that

era making you feel instantly at home.

Surrounded by native trees and shrubs

inviting the abundant bird life of Wood

Pigeons, Fantails and Bellbirds, and the

magnificent views, makes you feel like

you’re on holiday every day of the year.

This very spacious home literally has

many layers. A rumpus room and two

bedrooms on the lowest level, ideal for

teenagers to have their own space or rent

as Airbnb. The laundry, bathroom, and a

bedroom on the second; dining, living and

kitchen on third; while on the upper level

is the main bedroom, ensuite and study.

There are several outdoor spaces, a

paved sheltered barbecue area with the

added bonus of a pizza oven to enjoy al

fresco dining with family and friends, a

deck off the third level for a read of the

paper with a cup of coffee in hand, or the

surrounding area including the stepped

pathway to wander through nature.

Zoned for Cashmere Primary and

Cashmere High Schools and close to all

amenities.

A walkway right outside your door, and

the sense of seclusion and tranquillity on

entering the property, what more could

you ask for.

Open Homes Saturday and Sunday

12:00pm - 12:30pm.

gain a

second chance

at ncea

Each year up to 10,000 young people

in New Zealand leave school with little

or no formal qualifications. Many teens

disengage with school as the teaching

environment simply does not suit their

style of learning. Research shows that

without a qualification they are more likely

to have difficulties entering the workforce,

as most jobs nowadays require NCEA and

a driver’s licence.

Many early school leavers unfortunately

believe that secondary school is the only

way to earn their NCEA qualifications.

This misconception is particularly

concerning for those young people

who don’t necessarily ‘fit’ the schooling

environment, but still want to find

employment or complete certain industry

training courses for which an NCEA

qualification is a pre-requisite.

Every year dozens of young people

are getting a second chance at earning

NCEA credits after leaving secondary

school, thanks to Vision College. The

Private Training Establishment (PTE) are

spreading awareness to the young people

in the community, making sure they know

that achieving their NCEA levels outside

of school is within their reach.

Vision College’s free ‘Ultimate’

programme offers students without NCEA

the opportunity to gain NCEA Level 1

and 2, their driver’s licence, and a range of

skills designed to make them employable.

Students earn their NCEA credits in

a more practical way, through games,

hands-on activities, and by applying their

learning to real life situations. Students

also get to experience tasters of different

career and study paths to help them

decide where they would like to head after

completing ‘Ultimate’.

School leavers can also enrol in

Security, Early Childcare or Business

Administration courses to earn not only

credits towards NCEA Level 3, but also

a career qualification in just six months.

These courses are all free for anyone aged

between 16 and 19. Upon completion

students can even pathway onto higher

study with Vision College in Web and

Software Design, Early Childhood

Education, and Counselling.

Vision College are enrolling now for

2020! For more information on their

courses, call 0800 834 834, txt “VISION”

DANIELS

INDEPENDENT

COASTAL

YOUR VOTE

YOUR VOICE

Authorised by James Daniels, 6 Betula Place, Parklands, Coastal

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

Christchurch City Council elections. James is running as an Independent in the Coastal Ward

and promises vigorous, vocal and local representation in the Council chambers.

Last week you should have received

voting papers in the mail for the

Christchurch City Council election.

It’s a postal vote and the forms are

due back by October 12.

I grew up here, still live here and will grow old

here. I love it here. I’m upset about the way we, as

a coastal community, have been neglected and

disrespected over the last nine years in particular.

The Council needs people with proven, good

governance skills because we have some

strategic, yet complex, difficult decisions to make.

I’ll bring energy, experience, expertise and a fresh

perspective to the process.

I will remain visible, be transparent and

communicate with my community while listening

carefully to the issues that affect us.

ABOUT ME

It was fantastic to be part of the meet the

candidates meeting recently at the Roy Stokes

Hall. It was so energising to be in a room with many

people I know. I spoke about my feelings for this

very special part of Christchurch and admitted that

I don’t know all the answers but am ready, willing

and able to ask the hard questions – if elected.

The Daniels family first lived in

Union Street then Gresham Terrace.

After getting married at St Faiths,

I lived in Collingwood Street, Rae

Lane, Brentwood Street, Marriotts

Road and still live in Betula Place.

I went to South, Central and North

New Brighton schools and my

children were born and brought up

here. I know this area, its history, its

issues and the fact we’ve been let

down by the city’s governors.

We need a new, enthusiastic and

experienced representative in the

Council chambers.

I’ve had a great education and career

in this city with many high points, but

the current low point is the state of our

Ward. This is the most beautiful part of

Christchurch with so much potential.

We deserve better roads, footpaths,

drainage and basic infrastructure.

The Regeneration Plan will affect

the future of our community so we

need a fresh face and energised

voice to advocate and agitate for

the Coastal Ward.

I have more

than 30 years

of governance

experience.

I have had a long and successful broadcasting career.

For many years I partnered with Ken Ellis, and more

recently I worked with Hilary Muir co-hosting The

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,

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

future, is tied to the Coastal Ward.

MY SKILLS WILL MAKE

A DIFFERENCE

If I get elected I promise to

retire my campaign shirt!

Many people only know me because

of my broadcasting career. Not many

know I have more than 30 years of

governance experience covering

commercial, charitable, community

and not-for-profit organisations. I

was a foundation director of More

FM, served on the tribal council of

Ngāi Tahu for its first 19 years, am

currently in my fifth year on the board

of a $700m property company, had

six years on the national sporting

organisation Touch NZ and am on

the board of Te Papa Tongarewa,

the Museum of New Zealand.

I am also well-connected locally

and nationally, so combining my

communication skills with my

experience and expertise, I will

make a difference for our

Coastal community.

VOTE

JAMES DANIELS

INDEPENDENT

COASTAL

I’ve spoken to thousands of people when doorknocking,

being stopped at the supermarket,

service station or on the street and they have

common concerns about the lack of action and

communication regarding repairs, water-related issues and

rate rises.

WHAT I PLEDGE

The proposed rate increases over the next ten

years are distressing. I will openly oppose any

increases until convinced it’s necessary.

I’m not wasting energy on what happened (or didn’t

happen) over the last nine years. If elected, in the

first 90 days I will do a deep-dive stocktake on the

current situation regarding the Coastal Ward (the

Regeneration Plan is a positive!). In the New Year I

will come back to the community and call a series

of meetings to tell you face-to-face ‘where we’re

at’, then we will decide ‘where we want to go’.

The only promise I make is that I will work very hard.

ONE LAST THING

• People’s Choice Labour asked me to join them.

I said no.

• Local government should be about local

decisions, being made as close to the

community as possible.

• Local decisions should be made by local,

independent people who have no relationship

to Central Government.

• Otherwise, get rid of local government and run

Christchurch city from Wellington.
