Road closure ‘unfair’ says

four-wheel-drive enthusiast

• By Matt Slaughter

A FOUR-WHEEL-DRIVE enthusiast

has a message for people calling

for the closure of tracks in South

Christchurch – ‘‘give us a chance.’’

North Canterbury 4WD Club

member Trevor Taylor says the city

council’s decision to install a gate

blocking off Worsley’s Track to

vehicles without consultation was

not fair and people should have been

consulted.

But city council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas said

consultation was not required on this

occasion.

“The closure of Worsleys Rd was

undertaken through the use of a temporary

traffic management plan. This

closure was notified by pre-warning

signage on-site, as is required for

temporary closures. As this is not a

permanent closure, consultation as

per road stopping process was not

needed.”

Mr Thomas said Worsley’s Track

will be closed to cars and motorcycles

until late August next year

“due to concerns about fire risk.”

Southern View reported last month

Huntsbury Ave resident David

Drayton wants the city council to

do more to stop four-wheel-drive

vehicles damaging the Bownvale

Reserve track and endangering

walkers and cyclists.

•Turn to page 6

STALLED: Trevor Taylor says calls from people such as David Drayton (inset) to close four-wheel-drive tracks are unfair on

responsible four-wheel-drive vehicle users.

Wheelchair user issues at Nga Puna Wai

• By Matt Slaughter

CONCERNS HAVE been raised

about accessibility issues for

wheelchair users at Nga Puna

Wai.

The city council say it is aware

of these concerns and will put

in place measures to improve

accessibility.

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board chairwoman Karolin

Potter said wheelchair access at

the venue is not

good enough

and the rest

of the board

agrees.

Ms Potter

brought to the

David Bailey

board a wheelchair

user’s

concerns about

having trouble seeing when they

use the wheelchair seating areas

at the venue to watch sport.

For wheelchair users, Ms Potter

said: “The fence around the field is

at their eyeline or just below it, so

you’re either looking through wire

netting or you’re looking at the

fence post along the top rail.”

Ms Potter who used to work

for the Human Rights Commission

said this is not good

enough.

“My experience over the years

is that we fail and fail and fail

again on the issue of disability

access. Nga Puna Wai is brand

new and this made me feel more

angry than I could possibly discuss

with you about this issue.

It’s just outrageous.”

The board has asked city council

staff to investigate accessibility

issues at Nga Puna Wai, including

introducing space for spectators

in wheelchairs to have an unobstructed

view of the sports fields.

Said city council manager of

recreation and sports facilities

David Bailey: “We value the

concerns and have investigated

one complaint about the hockey

wheelchair spectator area not

being accessible. In this instance,

the limited access was due to

temporary fencing incorrectly

closing off the area. The issue was

rectified on the same day.”

Ms Potter said some of the

wheelchair seating at Nga Puna

Wai is separated from the other

spectator areas with little shelter

from the elements.

Said Mr Bailey: “Within the

covered spectator seating for

hockey there are dedicated

spaces at the top of the stand

for people who use wheelchairs.

Fixed seats are below this

viewing platform for other

spectators. The covered seating

provides some protection from

the weather, specifically rain.

The rear and sides of the

stand provide some wind

protection.”

Ms Potter said accessibility

and inclusiveness at the facility

has to be improved.

“The premise is, is that everything

we do should be just like

an open door, it should be built

for everyone.”

Mr Bailey said the city

council’s current plans to

improve accessibility at Nga

Puna Wai will involve installing

“improved signage directing

wheelchair users to the

accessible viewing stands.”

In Brief

SCHOOL LOCKDOWN

Police had Bamford School in

Woolston in lockdown after

a life-threatening incident at

a neighbouring property on

Wednesday. Gould Cres was

cordoned off and the school was

placed in lockdown at about 3pm.

Parents picking their children

up were made to wait outside the

cordon. A police spokeswoman

said there was a large police

presence at the address, including

the armed offenders squad. The

lockdown was lifted at about 5pm.

STREET NAMED

Mamuku Lane has been chosen

as the name for a street in a new

Huntsbury subdivision. The name

was approved by the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community Board.

GRANTS FOR STUDENTS

Three Woolston students

have received grants towards

upcoming trips. The Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board has approved $150 towards

Haeata Community Campus

student Haddasah Timo’s trip

to Samoa from which is taking

place right now until October

Bus stop

shift to

increase

accessibility

• By Matt Slaughter

A BUS stop on Lyttelton St

will be shifted to make it more

accessible for buses and people.

The bus stop will move from

its current location beside

145 Lyttelton St just slightly

further along the road beside 2

Hennessy Pl.

When cars occupy parking

spaces around the bus stop,

there is not enough space for

buses to pull into it and stop

parallel to the boarding area.

When these parks are used,

this also limits how accessible it

is for people.

The existing bus stop is also

21m away from the boarding

area, adding to access challenges.

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board chairwoman Karolin

Potter said moving the bus stop

about 50m down will hopefully

address these issues.

“It really was about the current

bus stop not being legally large

enough for buses to get in and

out of properly and that was

going to cause a problem at

some stage,” she said.

Healthy Heathcote aim of young

YOUNG PEOPLE from schools

and early learning centres are

asked to take action to create a

healthy Heathcote River.

The pilot project is a collaborative

community approach to conservation

education that aims to

connect students along the river.

City council parks programmes

and

manager Kate

Russell said

the project

aims to establish

a blueprint

Kate Russell

for student action

to power

environmental change within

the Heathcote River.

“We are looking to these young

people as the protectors of their

local river environment and hope

to expand this approach further

afield,” Ms Russell said.

Supported by city council education

co-ordinator Sally Airey,

the project encourages young

people to take “guardianship” of

the Heathcote River.

“The river suffers from ‘urban

stream syndrome’ and has poor

water quality,” Ms Airey said.

“We are inviting young people

to lead community action to help

create a healthy awa [river].”

project title – Healthy Ōpāwaho

– expresses the “connection

between a healthy river and a

healthy community.”

However, she expects a new

student leadership team to come

up with a new name, vision and

measurable goals for the project.

“Initially, I will be directly

working with interested students

and teachers from a handful of

the 100 schools and early learning

centres that are within one

kilometre of the awa,” she said.

“As the group develops and

connections are made between

schools, we hope even more

will be involved.”

The project aims to inspire

hundreds of young people to

take action for a healthy river,

building on individual projects

With the community board terms nearing their end, Spreydon Cashmere Community Board chairwoman Karolin Potter and

board member Helene Mautner reflect on the board’s achievements over the last three years

Supporting community initiatives

WE SUPPORT community

initiatives small and large

including removing the righthand

turn out of Barrington

Mall and rejecting traffic

proposals on Wilsons Rd that

would have facilitated a right

hand turn out of St Martins New

World car park -both for reasons

of safety.

We support cycleways. We

also know our city is comparatively

calm and peaceful in the

school holidays and for this to be

the norm we must make cycling

safe for our children and adults.

We have supported traffic

measures around schools and

they range from simple speed

signs on Tennyson St to more

elaborate measures outside

schools on busy roads such as

West Spreydon, Hoon Hay and

Hillview. We approve bus stops

and changes to parking.

We applaud our residents at

functions such as the Spreydon

Cashmere Service and Youth

Service Awards, Community

Garden Pride Awards and the

Edible Garden Awards. Every

year we recognise the commitment

of hundreds of people in

our wards to their community

in casual ceremonies.

Karolin Potter

We contribute small sums of

money to our communities. The

funds range from the Strengthening

Communities Fund which

contributes to the work being

done in our community by

organisations such as Manuka

Cottage, Rowley Resource Centre,

Sharp Crossover Trust and

Project Esther. Then there is the

Discretionary Fund which contributes

to sports and cultural

organisations and other initiatives

such as volunteer cycle

repair in Spreydon and bus trip

for older people in St Martins.

We support the Pacific Series

a rugby league competition and

we have the Hoon Hay Fiesta

a celebration of culture. We

support a community pantry, a

drinking fountain, a picnic table

as Beckenham School putting

Villa’s budding business bosses

VILLA MARIA College

students have had the

opportunity to be business

bosses, putting their business

knowledge into practice at the

school’s market day.

Year 10 commerce students

including Beckenham’s Katie

McHerron were challenged to

create a product and a food item

and sell to the college community

recently.

“My favourite part was

presenting our prototype and

receiving the feedback so we

could improve our product before

market day. I’m excited to be

selling our coffee cups and cake

mixes at the market and also

helping out our chosen charity,”

said Katie.

“We had to choose products to

sell, identify the unique selling

point, develop a business plan,

make prototypes and work on

our marketing skills,” said year

10 student Kyra Clarkson, whose

group is called Super Mugs.

“We decided to sell reusable

coffee cups, filled with a readyto-bake

cake mix and cookie

dough.”

Fellow student Keito Yoshida

added: “We focussed on creating

a product that was sustainable

and environmentally friendly,

and encourages people to reuse

Commerce is an optional subject

for year 10 students at Villa

Maria College and is a combination

of accounting, economics

and business studies.

It’s a popular subject choice for

students and they enjoy the challenge

of the market day event.

Student Ruby Lundy said: “It

was tricky to come up with a

Other products at the market

included reusable metal straws,

bubble tea and sweet treats.

‘One or two idiots ruin it’

•From page 1

Mr Taylor read the article and

told Southern View closing off

Track is unfair to responsible

Mr Taylor said it is just a few

these.

“One or two idiots ruin it for

everyone else. It’s the old story,

let’s punish the good guys, and

it’s just not right.”

He said North Canterbury

we have these regular meetings

that.

“I’m just an ordinary fourwheel-driver

who wants us to

keep our access,” he said.

Mr Thomas said there are still

options for people wanting to

go four-wheel-driving but they

should not abuse these privileges.

“There is a variety of

information available online

for local four-wheel-drive

opportunities, including through

the Department of Conservation

and four-wheel-drive clubs. The

council would also encourage

four-wheel-drivers to use all

roads with respect and to

minimise damage that may

inhibit other road users,” he said.

Dig out your historic photos for competition

GIVEN TIME, even the most

ordinary photo can be an

extraordinary window into a

different world.

This photo, picturing the intersection

of High, Hereford and

Colombo Sts, was a highly commended

entry in Christchurch

City Libraries’ 2008 photo hunt.

It was submitted by Tony Bowie

and shows his mother and

grandmother on their way to

shop in High St in the late 1950s.

During the 1950s, the central

city was the prime destination

for shopping in Christchurch,

and women would don hats and

gloves for their trip into town.

The central city enjoyed this

shopping heyday in the first half

of the 20th-century, coinciding

with the peak of reliance on

public transport – first trams,

then buses. Cathedral Square

was the central hub of the city’s

transport network, which connected

the suburbs to the city

centre.

It was customary for people

to go into town to shop, and to

“take tea” in the tea rooms of

the major department stores

located on both sides of Cathedral

Square.

Beca Christchurch Heritage

Festival 2019 starts on October 7

and this year, as part of the festival,

Christchurch City Libraries

is celebrating 10 years of the

Christchurch photo hunt.

Over the past decade, the

photo hunt has collected

hundreds of great photos like

this one, and Christchurch City

Libraries hopes people will dust

off their collections and unearth

some more treasures.

This year’s competition runs

from October 1 to 31. Your

New life

for Sign of

the Takahe

• By Matt Slaughter

THE SIGN of the Takahe has

reopened.

An official opening event was

held at the historic venue on

Hackthorne Rd. About 400 people

turned up on the day to celebrate.

The more than 100-year-old

building has been closed since the

2011 earthquake.

It was leased off the city council

by Andrew Male and his wife

Kay at the start of the year. They

have installed a new cafe and

bar upstairs and revamped the

interior of the building.

Mr Male said reopening the

Sign of the Takahe was a great

feeling, given the months of work

which have gone into getting it

ready. “My wife and I have been

talking about and passionate

about it for the last six months,

but you know, sometimes you

look back and think I couldn’t

have done it without my team.”

He said visitors are excited

about having the iconic building

back up and running.

“It’s finally seeing the building

back open again that has a lot of

history, people have got history

with it.”

ANNA THOMAS is a

“I did get one later. It was

an American Santa-Fe set

a tunnel. I soon lost interest,

probably because it wasn’t very

realistic.’’

The 26-year-old who

locomotive to haul a

train of ballast wagons.

It will include a 9m wooden

guard’s van carriage with a

ballast spreader underneath.

“I have talked to people

who knew the Di class locos.

That’s been pretty cool really,’

she said.

The guard’s van will feature

at the Big Model Train Show

Woolston boxers in the ring for Canty

• By Jacob Page

SIX WOOLSTON boxers will

be part of the Canterbury team

to compete at the national

championships which start

tomorrow at Hastings

A 20-strong team will test

themselves against the best

amateur boxers in New Zealand

over the five-day tournament.

Ryley Sutherland, Hamuera

Tainui, Blake Henderson, Trevor

Swainson, Byron Antal and

Tegan Clark will all represent

Woolston in the team.

Canterbury coach Mark Fuller

said the team have a good mix

of youth and experience across

junior, cadet and senior grades.

He has high hopes for the

Woolston contingent.

“I like the look of Trevor

Swainson,” he said.

“He’s been around a long

time and deserves a

national title.

“He’s capable and

durable.”

Tainui won a

national title last year

in the 63kg cadet class

and will be looking

for another win this

year.

Both he and

Sutherland won New

Zealand Golden

Gloves titles last

month in Rotorua.

“Tegan Clark has a hard class

but if she’s positive enough she’s

definitely one who could win a

national title,” Fuller said.

“In the cadets, Sutherland and

Kwahli Beauchamp – they’ve

had 25 to 30 fights now – and the

juniors Daniel Meehan, James

Charlton and Blake Gibson all

have 30 fights plus.

“We always aim to medal, but

there are a few kids there that

will need three bouts to earn a

silver or gold, but realistically we

should come back with a good

haul.

“This is the pinnacle

tournament of the year so they’’ll

all be giving it everything.

“Byron Antal is a good lad, it’ll

be a big step up and he’s keen to

learn.”

Weigh-ins are due to

take place today.

“It’s a good team

and we always have

expectations to

perform well and to

represent Canterbury

well,” Fuller said.

Tim Scandrett Independent City Councillor - Standing for re-election

Paid Advertising Feature

VOTE FOR ME, I WORK FOR YOU

Thank you for supporting me for the past

six years as your independent City Councillor.

Independent means I work for you, not a

political party.

Christchurch and our community have

taken a lot of hits in the last few years. We are

making great progress but there is still a lot

more to do.

The next three years are very important as

we continue to work to make Christchurch

a vibrant, inclusive and sustainable city. We

need to rejuvenate our community and adapt

to climate change in an environmentally,

financially and socially sustainable way.

By working together we can achieve this and

much more.

I am a proven City Councillor who knows

how to get the job done. I will remain your

independent advocate, working with you

to keep our community voice at the core of

Council decision making.

I will continue to meet you at my monthly

clinics to understand the issues important

to you. I will energetically represent our

community and work hard for local concerns

Vote for me and I will continue to fight for

chlorine-free drinking water protected at its

source, for preservation and regeneration

of the Heathcote River and Port Hills, for

improved community facilities and better traffic

planning.

We need to keep your rates down,

strengthen our community, and protect your

future and your children’s futures

Your support will ensure I remain your

independent City Councillor.

Please re-elect Tim Scandrett 027 693 5155

timscandrett@xtra.co.nz

Authorised by Tim Scandrett, 117 Dyers Pass Road, Christchurch.

Darrell Latham Standing for Councillor and Community Board - Heathcote Ward

As an elected representative I have a proven

track record advocating and gaining results for

residents. I do ask the hard questions and I do

seek accountability from the Council on your

behalf.

This is a defining election and ratepayers are

losing faith with the council. Areas of concern

include.

• Rates that are projected to rise by more

than 52% by 2028. Over the last three years,

average rate rises have hit 5.25%. This is

unacceptable.

• The Council needs to review income and

expenditure and how it manages assets to

avoid soaring debt.

• Ratepayers want transparency and

accountability without resorting to Official

Information Act procedures. The Council has

been branded as ‘’the most secretive in the

country.’’ A change of culture is required.

• Eight years on from the quakes we still

have endless roadworks, questionable sewage

systems and water that is compromised.

• Water supply, waste water, storm water and

water infrastructure are critically important. Our

waterways and coastal water form a major part

of the landscape and lives of the community.

• Central City residential developments

are creating masses of on street car parking.

These developments require off street parking

areas.

• A smart city is an accessible city. The

Council must listen to business people

and road users and create a user friendly

accessible city.

• We need individual and collective action

to minimise climate change. Mitigation and

adaptive management strategies must be part

of that discussion.

I am decisive, determined and dependable

and I will represent all Heathcote residents with

enthusiasm.

Authorised by Dr Darrell Latham, 53 Colenso Street, Sumner, Christchurch 8081.

Lee Sampson Standing for Councillor and Community Board - Cashmere Ward

I’m standing to ensure Christchurch realises

it’s potential as one of the most liveable,

vibrant, sustainable cities in the world for all our

communities.

I have a strong track record of getting things

done - and can tackle our cities biggest issues

in a logical and positive manner. I’ll ensure we

get the priorities right moving forward and with

increased transparency and financial nous for

all our ratepayers.

I’ve spent 20+ years managing large public

and private sector projects and I’m confident

that by making sounder decisions and getting

the basics right, we can deliver more for our

respective communities and within our financial

constraints.

I’ll be fighting to:

• Protect our precious water resources

(removing chlorine as soon as its safe to do so)

• Get our basic services right

• Keep rates affordable and prioritise

accordingly

• Support Port Hills conservation alongside the

ecological restoration of our urban rivers

• Reduce public transport gaps (such as)

Somerfield Street, Birdwood Ave, Bowenvale

Ave and Dyers Pass Road

• Secure regional investment through central

government.

I have broad volunteer experience as a

Rotarian, youth mentor and representative on

the Summit Road Society.

During the rebuild I delivered new Social

Housing and reduced the associated costs by

up-to 50% through adopting waste reduction

and lean principles - this enabled more warm

and sustainable homes to be built for our most

vulnerable residents.

I’m motivated, approachable and always have

an open door. Call on 021 772 929 or email

RATES FOR ROADS NOT FATTENING

SALARIES

These are my priorities if I have the honour

of becoming the next city Councillor for

Spreydon.

Roading: Taking 20 years to get our roads

back to pre quake condition is unacceptable.

This must be the councils number one priority

Rate rises: I think rates are getting to high and

not enough attention is being paid to spending.

If the forecasted rises go ahead it will cause

real hardship.

Chlorine: I think the council acted on bad

information when they put chlorine in our

perfectly good drinking water. The sooner it’s

out the better.

Parking: I would like to see more parking in the

inner city. Especially the free/cheap kind. I will

fight for hospital parking from day one.

Re-elect Lianne Dalziel Mayor

“I love Christchurch and am confident about our

future. With my experience and inclusive style

of leadership, we can tackle any challenges that

lie ahead, while seizing every opportunity that

comes our way.”

It is vital we keep the momentum going.

My immediate priorities are:

Water: Investment in our infrastructure will

deliver pure water safely to your home. I

will fight Government-imposed mandatory

chlorination.

Rates: I will bring rates rises down while

ensuring continued infrastructure investment,

and balancing council debt and inflation.

Central City: A vibrant city centre is essential.

Having secured $300m for Christchurch, the

stadium will be a multi-use facility. I will continue

to back the developers leading the way.

Sustainability: I am committed to reducing our

city’s carbon footprint, and helping communities

prepare for the impacts of climate change.

2019 LocAL ELEcTions - meet your candidates

Peter Ballantyne Standing for Canterbury District Health Board

Paid Advertising Feature

Peter has considerable experience in the

health sector having served as Deputy Chair of

the Canterbury District Health Board and Chair

of the West Coast District Health Board.

Peter believes the health board has worked

tirelessly to meet the needs of Cantabrians,

but has been constrained by lack of funding

.Peter considers that he is well placed to

advocate strongly for equitable funding for our

health needs in Canterbury. This, combined

with efficiencies in service, will enable more

funds to be available to meet the increased

demands of health issues such as mental

health, cancer and elective surgery in order to

ensure that our communities get well, stay well

and live well closer to home. Addressing the

increasing needs of our ageing population is

a continuing demand on our health services.

There is also need to remove the capital

charge, and progress the rate of our facility

rebuilds to ensure our people receive timely

and appropriate treatment in modern hospital

facilities. He is very conscious of the safety and

wellbeing of our health workforce which has

been operating under tremendous pressure

since the earthquakes while continuing to

maintain high standards of service.

Peter was previously a partner in the

international consulting firm Deloitte. He

currently serves on the CDHB Quality, Finance,

Audit, and Risk Committee and on the

University of Canterbury Council.

A life long Cantabrian, Peter is a greatgrandson

of John Ballantyne, founder of

Ballantynes Department Store. Peter’s wife

Claire worked as a registered nurse with

the CDHB and his daughter is a Consultant

Geriatrician. With two sons, an engineer and a

film director, Peter’s leisure time is spent with

family, grandchildren and sailing.

If you wish to contact Peter you can email him

at prballantyne@yahoo.com

John Minto Standing for Christchurch Mayor

I am standing as a KOA (Keep our Assets

Canterbury) candidate for mayor because we

want a future for Christchurch which makes

sense.

The city faces three big challenges: a

climate emergency, a water supply threatened

by contaminants and many people struggling

on poverty incomes without dignity or selfrespect.

Our policies are to reduce greenhouse

gas emissions with free and frequent public

transport; provide a local zone for Canterbury

businesses and co-operatives in the city

centre; rebuild the 400 council rental homes

destroyed in the earthquakes; future-proof

our water supply and develop a plan for

swimmable rivers; rate increases kept to the

rate of inflation and a minimum of the living

wage for all council work.

As well as significantly reducing our

greenhouse gas emissions, fare-free public

transport will create a more cohesive, less

divided city as people mix and mingle on

modern, low-emission buses with free wifi.

It will also save families approximately four

weeks pay per year in transport costs which

will be spent in the local economy giving a

boost to local businesses and co-operatives.

This policy will not increase rates because

it will be paid for from existing government

budgets by rebalancing transport funding away

from new roads in favour of public transport.

These policies will improve our lives while

saving the council money. More details are at

www.MintoforMayor.nz

Alexandra Davids Standing for Canterbury District Health Board

I am fully committed to giving all members

of our communities the strong, positive

representation they deserve.

I have been an elected member since 2013.

In this time, I have held a variety of positions,

including my daily work with Women’s Refuge

at the Battered Women’s Trust which has

given me an insight into the daily struggles

going on behind closed doors, Chair of

Keep New Zealand Beautiful, Chair of Keep

Christchurch Beautiful, Elected Member of the

Local Government Young Elected Members

Board, Local Government Elected Member

of the national Community Board Executive

Committee, Trustee of the Graeme Dingle

Foundation, Chair of Whitau School.

These experiences have given me the

opportunity to continue to develop the

leadership and mediation skills we need

around the table within the CDHB for us to

make positive steps forward for the entire

Canterbury region.

I am a proactive, results-focussed candidate

with the enthusiasm and energy needed to

effect positive change.

As your elected representative I aim to

strongly advocate for a parking solution for

Christchurch Hospital, future focussed decision

marking and more resourcing for our aging

population, more support for mental health and

chlorine free water.

Rik Tindall Standing for Environment Canterbury - Christchurch South Ōwhanga

Kia ora, hello Banks Peninsula, Port Hills

and South Christchurch residents.

Te mana o te wai - top respect for water -

guides local government: when water

status is good, so is all life around it. The

four shared wellbeings - social, economic,

environmental and cultural - grow as values

built on pure aquifers, clean surface water

and secure domestic supply, with prioritised

care - kaitiakitanga. With service experience

2007-2010 from Save Our Water campaign,

I ask your vote of support again, returning

democracy and public oversight to Canterbury

Regional Council.

Biosecurity brings rural and urban people

together, against pest animals and plants that

undermine our economy and biodiversity.

As a Predator Free Port Hills coordinator

for Cashmere, I work with the Summit Road

Society, Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust,

DOC and council staff, to help our communities

protect the native species we all treasure.

Parallel to the Canterbury Water Management

Strategy and Zone Committees our elected

Ecan helped found, this collaboration shows

how all society can work together, for the

common good.

Emergency preparedness can’t be forgotten

and was the portfolio chair I held for the last full

elected Ecan board, before the earthquakes.

I have deepened readiness awareness

from then since, as a city civil defence and

residents’ group volunteer. I would help all

communites advance thorough emergency

response plans. Disasters can strike any

time, lest we forget. Harbour safety and public

transport are important. Climate change

mitigation work is most urgently essential to

begin.

Darryll Park Standing for Christchurch Mayor

Hello there, I am Darryll Park, a proud

Cantabrian, and extremely passionate about this,

our city of Christchurch.

I have lived and worked in and around

Christchurch all of my life.

In the past I was the CEO of Christchurch

& Canterbury Marketing Ltd, and I helped

to reposition Tourism under the government

Tourism 2010 Strategy, as well as past board

member of Civil Aviation Authority & Aviation

Security Services, two government agencies and

was employed as Air NZ South Island Manager

until 1998.

Nowadays I am the co-owner of Oxford

Management Services, a property development

and management company supporting

hospitality, Chair of Mondo Travel Group, and a

Director of the Canterbury Rugby Union and the

Crusaders.

What I’m standing for

I am standing as a Mayoralty candidate for

Christchurch in the upcoming elections. I am

campaigning to ‘Move Christchurch Forward’,

with a focus on common sense, a back to basics

approach and better ways to move us forward.

Why am I doing this?

Quite simply, I want to restore public trust in

Christchurch’s local leadership and with your

help, do what’s needed to be done to make

Christchurch, New Zealand’s most liveable city.

This will mean being accountable and

transparent to you, the voter, ratepayer, resident

and business community. Our key areas of

focus are rates, water, infrastructure, tourism,

sustainability, institutions and events, crime and

communities. I will be revealing our policies over

the coming weeks.

There is much to be done, and if elected, I will

stand aside from my current business interests

and governance roles to ensure my focus on this

city is absolute.

Thank you for your interest, and if you want to

help move Christchurch forward, I look forward

to your vote.

Sweet vegan classics from Asia

Try a vegan take on

some Asian classics

Indonesian crumpets

Makes 20

Ingredients

250ml (1 cup) soy or coconut

milk

7g sachet dried active yeast

1 tsp coconut sugar

300g (2 cups) plain flour

2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp vanilla powder

Olive oil or vegan butter, for

greasing

Suggested toppings:

Coconut yoghurt, vegan butter,

pure maple syrup, fresh berries,

shredded basil leaves, dried

edible flowers, hemp seeds, icing

sugar.

Directions

Gently warm the soy or

coconut milk and 250ml (one

cup) of water in a saucepan

over low heat until just warmed

through (don’t warm the liquid

too much or you will kill your

yeast). Pour the liquid into a

bowl and add the dried yeast

and sugar. Set aside in a warm

place for 15min or until the

surface starts to foam. Sift the

flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt

and vanilla into a large bowl.

Add the yeast mixture and stir to

combine. Place a clean damp tea

towel over the mixing bowl and

set aside for 35-40min or until

the mixture is risen and bubbly.

Heat the oven to 100 deg C

fan-forced. Lightly grease a large

frying pan and set over mediumhigh

heat, then lightly grease a

few egg rings and place them in

the pan.

Stir the mixture again – it

should look like thick, bubbly

pancake batter. Add 60-125ml

(¼ cup-½ cup) more water to

reach the desired consistency if

necessary.

Spoon two to three

tablespoons of the mixture into

each egg ring. Cook for 2min

or until the tops are completely

covered in bubbles and the

batter is dry. Remove the egg

rings, transfer the crumpets

to a heatproof plate and keep

warm in the oven. Repeat with

the remaining mixture to make

about 20 crumpets.

Serve the warm crumpets with

your favourite toppings.

Any leftover crumpets will

keep in an airtight container in

the fridge for two to three days

or in the freezer for up to two

weeks.

Chana masala

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 Tbsp avocado oil

1 onion, diced

400g can whole tomatoes

400g can chickpeas, drained and

rinsed (see tip)

2 tsp coconut sugar

2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon

juice, plus lemon wedges to serve

Sea salt

Chopped coriander leaves, to

serve

Steamed basmati rice or garlic

Naan to serve

Masala curry paste

2-3 long red chillies, roughly

chopped

3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

2 tsp ground cumin

2-3cm piece of ginger, roughly

chopped

1 tsp ground turmeric

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp black peppercorns

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp brown mustard seeds

Directions

Using a large mortar and

pestle, pound the masala curry

paste ingredients for about

10min or until you have a

smooth paste (alternatively,

you can use a small food

processor.)

Heat a saucepan over medium

heat, add the oil and curry paste

and saute for 30sec.

Add the onion and saute for

2min, then stir through the

tomatoes and chickpeas.

Reduce the heat to low and

simmer for 30min or until

reduced to a thick curry.

Remove the pan from the heat,

stir through the sugar and lemon

juice, then taste and add a little

salt, if necessary.

Sprinkle the chana masala

with coriander and serve with

steamed basmati rice or garlic

naan on the side and lemon

wedges for squeezing over.

Tip: Keep your chickpea liquid

(aquafaba) to make sriracha

mayo or caesar dressing.

Hydrate to elevate

We all know drinking water is important, but the

majority of us simply don’t drink enough even though

we know it makes us feel great when we do. We look

at the benefits and motivate you to drink more with a

few tips on how to make it just a little more palatable.

With over a quarter of Kiwis

consuming less than two glasses of

water a day and only 5% drinking

more than the recommended eight, the

message obviously hasn’t hit home on

the importance of hydrating our body.

A recent survey conducted by

SodaStream found that Cantabrians

are particularly guilty when it comes to

their water intake.

With 82% drinking less than six

glasses of water a day, but with over 85%

admitting they feel healthier when they

drink more water, something needs to

be done to bridge the gap in terms of

what we know to be true and what we’re

actually doing about it.

This same survey revealed that

although 41% of us limit how many soft

drinks we consume due to our concerns

over sugar content, the same number

of people said tea or coffee is this their

number one drink of choice.

Some people even believe that the

water consumed in their cup of Joe

constitutes part of their water intake.

This is a fallacy.

As caffeine actually dehydrates us, as

does alcohol too, it means we need to

drink even more water to compensate.

Not so surprisingly the reason we

don’t drink nearly enough water is that

we simply forget. Now with apps you

can download direct to your smart

phone, there are no more excuses.

Further studies proved that people

who had a SodaStream machine in their

homes were more likely to drink more

water.

In fact, the study showed that people

drank 30% more water.

For those of us who aren’t used to

drinking water like it’s going

out of fashion, there are plenty of ways

to increase the fun factor while still

being healthy.

After

Before

By simply turning tap water into sparkling water with a

SodaStream machine and adding a splash of fresh lemon juice

or naturally squeezed fruit juice, is bound to have a positive

impact on our health and wellbeing.

SENIOR LIVING

Cleansed and cured?

Many common health problems can

all be easily solved with one simple

approach according to a leading New

Zealand Medical Herbalist Brett Elliott.

He found in his clinical practice that

most of his clients have similar common

health complaints and that it all could be

traced back to digestive disorders. Did

you know up to 50% of the population

suffer from common health conditions

like; chronic constipation, acid reflux,

bloating, gas, ulcers, irritable bowel

syndrome, crohn’s disease, coeliac

disease, haemorrhoids, gallstones,

cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure,

abdominal weight gain, skin complaints

and many more and can all come back to

a poor digestive system.

He wanted to find a simple solution

everyone could use to support their

bodies natural healing without the side

effects of pharmaceutical medications

that often only ease or cover the

symptoms without healing as well as

often having many side effects. Brett

knew everything in the body depends on

the digestive system working properly

and so went about developing “The

Ultimate Herbal Detox Body Cleanse

Program” a simple to use two week

program. It not only supports the whole

digestive system but also helps cleanse

the entire body of toxins and parasites.

The program contains four different

all herb formulas all in capsule form

that need to be taken twice daily. These

capsules can be blended into a smoothie

if you prefer. Colon-aid is designed to

support a healthy bowel movement,

increases the secretion of gastric

juices and bile and promote appetite

and digestion. Digez-aid soothes and

stimulates healthy

digestion and

absorption of

vital nutrients.

Sym-lax is a

bulking fibre to

cleanse and heal

the intestines

and bowels. It

also makes you

feel less hungry.

Liva-food is the

final nutrient

rich formula to

support a healthy

liver function.

It supports

detoxing the

body of toxins

and heavy

metals.

The program supports the bodies’

organs to do their job. The formulas are

New Zealand made and contain a total

of 24 high potency herbs making it quite

possibly the most comprehensive “do

it yourself ” herbal detox body cleanse

program in the world. Brett has refined

4 bedrooms | 4 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 1 swimming pool

2 car-garage | 8 off-street parks | Listing Number: PI59583

A design masterpiece and recipient of six

national and regional awards, this executive

home was crafted by O’Neil Architecture

and built by multi award winning Metzger

Builders Ltd (MBL). Sublime style and

unparalleled luxury sets the tone for this

grand residence showcasing world class

architectural excellence and state-of-theart

technology. Spectacularly positioned

on 3,427sqm, this luxurious home offers

an escape from the everyday in a breathtaking

location, boarding the Kaikainui

Stream. This exquisite residence is designed

for lavish entertaining inside and out.

Impressive dimensions and an abundance of

accommodation with resort style amenities

provide the ultimate lifestyle. No expense

has been spared to create a magical - yet

eminently functional - executive home.

Sleek and sophisticated, the stylish interior has

been cleverly composed to reveal delightful

spaces at every turn. Interior living spaces

wrap around a stunning outdoor room with

full-height glazed panels and sliding doors

and an opening louvre roof for year-round

al fresco living. Inside, open-plan living and

dining flows to a high-spec kitchen boasting

stone counters, butler’s pantry, and drawers

and cupboards with electric servo operation.

Sliding doors push back to outdoor living

on two sides and stacking windows in the

kitchen open to the main terrace and pool for

effortless entertaining. A separate media room

offers a mirror TV, drop-down projector and

home theatre, a gas fire and garden views.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is a palatial

retreat, with wrap-around glazing and a

balcony for absorbing the tranquil outlook,

and is served by a sumptuous tiled en-suite

with twin vanities and bath. Three more

bedrooms all feature en-suite bathrooms,

and the extensive extras include built-in

wine storage for 250+ bottles, smart wiring

and ducted air-conditioning. All of this is set

in picturesque grounds, fully appointed for

entertaining with an infinity pool, in-ground

spa, gazebo with fire pit and multiple outdoor

sitting areas totalling 250 sqm.

This remarkable home offers the ultimate

in opulence and comfort for contemporary

resort-style living in a tranquil, semi-rural

location. Homes of this calibre are all too rare.
