FOOD IS flying off the shelves

of a community pantry in an

Edgeware park.

The community pantry in

Packe St park is an initiative

started by the Edgeware Korean

Presbyterian Church and the

Pantry emptied overnight

Packe Street Park and Community

Garden group.

The two groups joined forces

to find a way for surplus food

to be used for people in need in

the community.

The pantry is stocked every

week or 10 days, and overnight,

the food is gone.

The park already had a book

and plant exchange operating,

and one of the park co-ordinators,

Helen Kidd suggested the

group should collaborate with

members of the church who

had the initial idea of the community

food pantry.

“An old fridge was purchased

and set up, and it is being well

used already. Food items donated

and put in the fridge go

very quickly, and as it becomes

better known, and the community

garden yields fresh produce

in abundance, we expect it to be

very well used,” Ms Kidd said.

Questions

remain on

estuary

edge

repairs

• Matt Slaughter

THE SOUTHSHORE and South

New Brighton estuary edge will

be repaired – the question is

when and how?

In August the city council

made the decision to repair

earthquake damage along the

estuary edge, which has left

the area prone to flooding and

erosion.

Concerned residents and the

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board had been asking for the

repairs to happen since the 2011

earthquake.

Some community members

said although they are pleased the

repairs will go-ahead they want

the city council to come forward

with the specific details on when

these will likely start and finish

and what they will entail.

Said city council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge: “At this stage,

we don’t have specific start and

finish dates for this project. Currently,

we are in the process of

developing a project brief and

preliminary costing and design.

This project has yet to be fully

scoped.”

Calls for microphones unheard

• By Matt Slaughter

THE CALLS of people who

attend Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

meetings are going unheard –

literally.

Linwood Ward city councillor

Yani Johanson said there are no

microphones at the board’s meeting

room, in spite of his regular

requests over more than 15 years

to have these installed.

Cr Johanson said some members

of the public who had spoken

at board meetings found it

so hard to hear, they had stopped

attending to give their input.

“People that used to go to our

boardroom and attend the meetings

on a regular basis have said

to me that they don’t go anymore

because they can’t hear.

“They cannot follow what’s going

on, they cannot understand

what’s being said.”

He said recently there was a

board hearing that had to be adjourned

and delayed until a portable

microphone was brought in.

Cr Johanson said the fact that

the board is still waiting for

microphones to be installed after

years of asking for them is unfair.

“We’ve had every excuse under

the sun about why council staff

won’t support it. I think what

QUIET: The Linwood-Central-Heathcote community board has

no microphones in its boardrooms and members of the public

are being put off attending meetings because of this. ​

makes me more angry is, A: the

fact that it’s taken so long, but

B: that other boardrooms who

have less of an issue have got

them ahead of ours . . . I think it’s

inherently unfair.”

City council head of community

support, governance and

partnerships John Filsell said

microphones and audio improvements

for the boardroom would

cost $35,000 but funds are not

currently available for these.

Said Mr Filsell: “Technology

improvements are part of the

Long Term Plan and annual plan

process and use the organisational

prioritisation framework to

prioritise investment decisions.

Linwood is one of five boardrooms

yet to receive a technology

refresh, and demand from the

organisation is always greater

than the available funding,” he

said.

But Cr Johanson disputed the

idea that the city council could

not afford microphones for the

boardroom.

“They put in a new audiovisual

system into the council,

council got new microphones,

they went through two sets of

microphones and our board still

doesn’t have any. So, to say that

it’s a budget issue is just a nonsense

in my view.”

Mr Filsell said “Linwood

Central-Heathcote Community

Boardroom is on the list of remaining

boardrooms for prioritisation

and the feedback from the

community board will feed into

the prioritisation. The technology

refresh will be prioritised as

funds become available.”

Cr Johanson said “It shouldn’t

be a political decision about

whether or not someone should

be able to hear when they go

to a local community board, it

should be part of the democratic

process.”

In Brief

FLOOD PROTECTION

Repair and maintenance to 40m

of the stopbank on Kibblewhite

St in New Brighton was set to

finish on Friday. City council

staff recently conducted an

inspection of the stopbank and

noticed some areas of the base

of the stopbank needed to be

repaired.

CAR PARK REPAIR

A complete car park renewal at

Cowles Stadium on Pages Rd

will start this month and should

be completed by early March

next year. Half of the car park

will be under construction at a

time, reducing the number of

available to the public and

there will be some noise

disturbance.

TSUNAMI PREPARATION

Tsunami sirens were sounded

along the coastline between

Brooklands and Taylors Mistake

last Sunday at 11am as part of

a biannual exercise that checks

they are operating correctly. City

council head of Civil Defence

and emergency management

Rob Orchard said the routine

tests are a good reminder to

people in coastal and riverside

areas that they should have an

evacuation plan in place, so that

everyone in the family knows

what to do and where to go if

there is a tsunami evacuation.

Lifetime dedicated to

helping children recognised

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A LIFETIME dedicated to

giving children with disabilities

the best start in life has seen Jan

Murphy recognised as a local

hero.

The Burnside resident has

spent more than 40 years working

at The Champion Centre and

has successfully developed intervention

programs to support

children and their families.

In recognition of her hard

work, Mrs Murphy, 67, has won

a Westfield Local Hero award for

her contribution to the community

along with a $10,000 grant

to continue the work.

The Champion Centre is a notfor-profit

organisation based in

Burwood which provides multidisciplinary

early intervention

services to infants and young

children with disabilities.

This includes children with

Down’s syndrome, autism spectrum

disorder, dyspraxia and

global development delay.

More than 2000 children and

families have been supported

through the intervention programmes.

Mrs Murphy said she felt

Jan Murphy ​

“overwhelmed” and “humbled”

to receive the award.

“For many years now I have

had the honour and privilege of

knowing and working alongside

infants, small children and their

families who find themselves on

an unexpected journey – that of

developmental difference and

disability.

“There are many reasons why

developmental differences exist

but, for me, the constant in it all

is the enormous courage of the

parents and their remarkable

children. In truth, they are the

heroes,” Mrs Murphy said.

She started out as a speechlanguage

therapist for the now

Ministry of Education and was

based in speech therapy clinics

in schools.

But early on in her career, Mrs

Murphy felt very strongly the

injustice children with complex

learning needs could not access

any of the resources they

needed.

In 1978 she joined a small

band of professional women

who believed they could make a

difference to the lives of children

and established The Champion

Centre.

“The Champion Centre is an

amazing place . . . I love that

every day of the week these

families join highly-skilled and

committed professionals and

together they enable their children

to achieve more than ever

thought possible.

Mrs Murphy said her goal

for the future is The Champion

Centre may be sustainable and

accessible for any children and

families who need it.

500,000 pizzas cooked

at popular venue

• By Jess Gibson

A POPULAR Woolston eatery

is retiring its wood-fired oven

after using it to cook more than

500,000 pizzas – enough to feed

the population of Christchurch.

Cassels The Brewery Bar

and Restaurant, located in The

Tannery, upgraded to a larger

pizza oven last Wednesday to

help keep up with growing

demand.

Alisdair Cassel, who owns The

Tannery, opened the bar and restaurant

shortly after the February

22, 2011, earthquake as a place for

the community to gather while

the city dusted itself off.

Mr Cassel said the number of

pizzas cooked was “unbelievable.”

UPSIZING:

Alasdair

Cassels and

Joe Shanks

replaced the

eight-year-old

wood-fired

pizza oven at

Cassels The

Brewery Bar

and Restaurant

for a larger

one to keep up

with growing

demand.

“I would not have believed it

when we put it in. We love that

everyone loves our pizzas as

much as we do.”

Mr Cassel runs the establishment

with his son Zak Cassels

and son-in-law Joe Shanks.

Other than pizza, the spot is

best known for its award-winning

beer which is brewed on-site.

Cassels Brewing Co’s Milk

Stout recently won World’s Best

Stout & Porter at the recent

World Beer Awards in London.

Crowds also gather to watch

musicians at Cassels Blue

Smoke.

Some of the biggest acts to

perform include The Animals,

Mac DeMarco, Dave Dobbyn, Bic

Runga and Marlon Williams.

$14.5m development for high school

• By Claire Booker

MORE DETAILS have now

emerged about the $14.5

million Mairehau High School

expansion.

Principal Harry Romana

told Pegasus Post phase one

of the project would see new

hard material, technology,

hospitality and other specialist

classrooms rebuilt.

The proposed 500 build

roll master-plan development

is planned to start on-site in

December next year.

The decile 4 school’s roll is

expected to grow to 500 pupils,

and the master plan will allow

for a roll build of up to 800.

Mr Romana said while the

design is in its very early stages,

it offers an opportunity to

provide a new 21stcentury

technology

and supported

learning facility.

“Consideration

has also been given

to rebuilding our

gymnasium changing

rooms,” he said.

Each phase of

the plan is aligned

to the greater

Christchurch

Network of Schools

and the Ministry of Education

prediction of roll growth.

“The new building (phase

one) caters for the future of

teaching and learning practices,”

Mr Romana said.

The school’s revised masterplan

reflects the latest budget

and MOE growth projection

Harry Romana ​

figures.

The current main

structure of the

school’s gymnasium

is sound, but

Mr Romana said

there is a real need

to rebuild storage,

changing room and

classroom facilities.

Phase two of the

development will

include the science,

administration,

performing arts and library

blocks of the school.

Mr Romana said the modern

facilities and fittings of the

new buildings will be a great

start to the school’s rebuild.

“The whole area will allow

curriculum deliveries through

specialist areas,” he said.

The master plan also

outlines the aspirations and

fundamental learning needs of

the school and the ministry.

“Our technology, hospitality,

ICT, support learning, and PE

and health teachers are meeting

and working together on

the design of the building,” Mr

Romana said.

Mr Romana said the highest

projected roll before the

completion of the project is

expected to be able to be accommodated

for within the

existing buildings.

“We are very excited about

our master plan and future

building project. We will

continue to develop positive

outcomes and learning

experiences for our students,”

he said.

St Albans community pantry in high demand

• From page 1

Jaehee Kim is the community

ministry leader at the

church, which has been in St

Albans for 16 years.

Mrs Kim said the idea came

about because the church

wanted to give to the community

and provide a space to

share food.

“We noticed the food has

been taken very quickly. It

confirmed to

us that there

are needs

in the community.

We

recently have

received more

donations to

the pantry, but

we still need more. Through

the community pantry we

hope to develop community

spirit to grow

together,” she

said.

Ms Kidd

said volunteers

from both

groups have

come together

for working

bees to support each other,

and she said it is this kind of

collaborative approach which

strengthens communities.

“The community around

Packe St Park is very diverse,

and we know we have people

in that community who need

practical support. The community

pantry also provides

an opportunity for people or

businesses who have surplus

food to donate it, knowing

that it will be going where it is

needed,” she said.

Photo hunt keeps the past alive

THE ARTS Centre as we know it

has been part of Christchurch’s

landscape for generations –

but this glimpse of one of its

buildings standing alone on a

dusty unpaved road is unfamiliar

to many of us.

From 1877 until the mid-1950s,

the Arts Centre was buzzing

with students, as Canterbury

College (now Canterbury

University) and Christchurch

Girls’ and Boys’ High Schools

used the buildings as a campus at

various times.

The buildings were transferred

to the Arts Centre Trust Board

when Canterbury University

completed its move to Ilam in the

1970s.

Designed by prominent

architect Benjamin Mountfort,

this Gothic Revival tower served

as the Observatory and Biology

building, with a telescope gifted

by James Townsend located in

the Observatory right at the top

when this photo was taken.

The historic Townsend

Telescope, a six-inch refractor

made by Thomas Cooke and

Sons of York, England, in 1864,

was recovered from the rubble of

the Arts Centre tower after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The Arts Centre and

Canterbury University plan to

restore the building and the

telescope.

HISTORY: This photo of the Observatory, Canterbury College,

circa 1895, was entered in the 2013 Christchurch City Libraries’

Photo Hunt.

The Beca Christchurch

Heritage Festival 2019 starts

on Monday and this year, as

part of the festival, Christchurch

City Libraries will celebrate 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.

The photo hunt competition

runs from now until October 31.

Your photo hunt photos will be

carefully scanned and preserved

as part of the Christchurch City

Libraries’ collection.

They will then be loaded

onto the Discovery Wall at

CELEBRATION: To check

Estuary edge

questions remain

•From page 1

Said departing Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

deputy chairman Tim Sintes,

who has been one of the main

campaigners for the estuary

edge repairs: “We have been

given a deadline, which is 2020

when things will start happening

but an actual start time, I’m

not sure.

“We know there’s a commitment

to do something, but what

will it be? That’s the question

I’m getting asked at the moment

from the community,” he said.

Southshore Residents Association

chairwoman Lynda

Burdekin said some clarity on

these details would make the

repairs start to feel real after

years of asking for them.

“Once you can see that something

is going to be happening

about this time, you get that

sense of progress . . . finally, we

got our point of view through to

the council and that was a huge

achievement but now we’ve kind

of got, well nothing much has

been really happening.’’

In spite of this, Mrs Burdenkin

said the city council

had been in contact with the

residents association about the

repairs and she trusts these will

be done to a high standard and

the finer details on them will be

revealed soon.

Special events for cyclists

CHRISTCHURCH cyclists will

spin their wheels for Biketober

and get involved in special events

across the city.

More experienced cyclists will

be able to join the Canterbury

Mountain Bike Club on a social

ride around Bottle Lake Forest

on Sunday.

Keener participants will have

from the start of Biketober until

October 25 to take up the Passport

Challenge.

An online map features more

than 40 destinations where

cyclists can pick up the unique

code and fill up their “passports”.

Some spots offer deals for anyone

arriving by bike during October.

A prize pool valued at over $7000

value is up for grabs.

You can also race into the free

Passport One-Day Challenge on

Saturday, October 26. Powering

up from 9am, see how many destinations

you can get to by 4pm.

Cyclists will become artists,

drawing a picture with their

bikes using GPS navigation

during the Biketober Strava Art

Contest.

They will also be able to explore

the city while taking in the SCAPE

Public Art season. People are

invited to use the city council’s

SmartView to find their favourite

public artworks and take a selfie to

win a prize.

Cyclists can also join the

Climate Crisis Progress Ride on

October 17.

Guided by experts, the free

ride will provide an opportunity

to look at architecture, transport

and the environment and to

learn about moves to deal with

the climate crisis.

City council planning and delivery

transport manager Lynette

Ellis says Biketober emphasises

the importance of the city’s sustainable

approach to transport.

“Christchurch’s investment in

cycleways is vital to addressing

climate change, creating healthier

communities and reducing

congestion, so it is great to see

residents make the most of the

new network,” Ms Ellis said.

“Biketober celebrates the many

positive outcomes of the city’s

new transport infrastructure,

encouraging people to have some

fun and get back on their bikes.”

The month-long cycling event

will finish with a Halloween ride

through the Beckenham Loop on

October 31.

Departing Coastal-Burwood Community Board

Concerns for future

DEPARTING Coastal-Burwood

Community Board member Tim

Baker reflects on his role on the

board over the last three years.

Being elected on to the

Burwood Pegasus Community

Board [now Coastal-Burwood

Community Board] between the

September 10 and February

11 earthquakes

meant the job description

changed.

I was involved with

hundreds of meetings.

EQC, Insurance, orange

zone, red zone, green

zone, TC 1,2 and 3 and

much more.

Then there were

infrastructure meetings,

new bridges, and new facilities

including QEII, Aranui Community

Centre and South Brighton

Community Hall, roads, sewers,

new subdivisions, parks, pier

repair, red zone future, water

quality and mental health. I

have enjoyed being an elected

member for the community. I

have learned a life time of information.

Tim Baker

The Christchurch East Labour

electorate members have been

a very important support and

source of advice.

Being part of this team, being

able to discuss some topics with

our local MP sharing thoughts

was vital for me to make some

decisions or the way I

voted in board meetings.

The New Brighton

Master Plan is a very

good plan and I say

well done to the board

members. However,

I believe that the Hot

Water Pools - He Puna

Taimoana, will cost the

ratepayer $1m per year

after a year.

I believe Southshore should

have been Red Zoned and building

in the hazarded areas is not

good long term. That house

insurance or lack of, is going to

be the number one topic for the

next 10 years.

I wish the new elected

members all the best as there is

still an enormous job to do and

decisions to make.

Oceanside Jiu-Jitsu

win national titles

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

A NEW jiu-jitsu club at South

New Brighton has wasted little

time in earning two national titles.

The Oceanside Jiu-Jitsu Club

started out of the South New

Brighton Surf Life Saving Club

three months ago and came back

from the National Gi Championships

in Auckland with two gold,

two silver and a bronze.

Founding member Hayden

Smith said after living his life in

the east-side of Christchurch,

he wanted to give back to the

community and offer something

which was not available in New

Brighton.

“There’s nothing else like us

out here and we’ve grown quickly

from the four founding members

to now have more than 40.

Hayden said the club teaches

jiu-jitsu without the need for

people to purchase the Gi uniform.

“It just eliminates a cost barrier

for people and can make

things more relaxed.”

Smith won gold in the under-

70kg purple belt class, while Kris

Karson also triumphed in the

under-82kg blue belt class.

Kieran Smith earned silver in

the under-88kg blue belt class

and Max Mills gained second

in the under-70kg white belt

competition.

Chris McCormack earned

bronze in the under-80kg white

belt.

Hayden said the club always

tried to strike a balance between

competitiveness and letting new

people learn.

“The medals that we won are a

reflection on the club as a whole,

everyone helps people train for

those kind of events.

“We do try to push

competitions as a way for people

to push themselves outside

their comfort-zones but it is not

mandatory.”

finished fifth and earned the fair play award at their South

Island tournament at Blenheim last week.

Coastal Spirit fifth in

South Island tournament

• By Jacob Page

THE COASTAL Spirit 12 grade

girls football team finished fifth

at a South Island tournament in

Blenheim last week.

The team bounced back from

and opening 3-2 loss to eventual

tournament winners Southland

to earn a 6-1 win over Waimak

United.

A 2-2 draw with South

Canterbury and a 1-1 stalemate

with FC Nelson kept their finals

hopes alive before a 1-0 loss to

eventual runners-up Cashmere

Technical.

A 1-0 win over Marlborough

was enough to see them into

the play-off for fifth on finals

day.

Coastal Spirit gained a 3-1 win

over South Canterbury in their

last game to finish fifth.

Emma Johnstone was the

team’s most valuable player

while Ruby Hale earned the

golden glove award for her efforts

in-goal.

The team was given the

tournament’s fair play award for

their style of play and spirit in

which they took to the field.

Southland beat Cashmere

Technical 2-1 in the final.

Tasty Bites

Cooking with what is in season

Lemons and fennel are in

season and they make a

perfect partnership. This

subtle combination works

beautifully on its own

as a light dinner or will

accompany seafood, pork

and lamb

Lemon and fennel risotto

Ingredients

1500ml vegetable stock, hot

2 lemons

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp butter

2 shallots

1 tsp fennel seeds, crushed

3 bulbs fennel, sliced thinly and

tops reserved

400g risotto rice, such as arborio

or carnaroli

200ml dry white wine

100g parmesan cheese, finely

grated

1 cup fennel fronds

½ purple olives, stones removed

50ml olive oil

sea salt and cracked pepper

Directions

Bring the stock to the boil. In a

medium-sized saucepan, heat the

oil and butter, add fennel seeds

and shallots and cook gently

for 3min. Add the sliced fennel

bulbs and cover with a lid and

cook for about 15min until the

fennel has softened and become

sweet and fragrant.

Add the zest of one lemon and

juice from half.

Add the rice and stir well so

the rice gets coated. Cook until

the rice becomes lightly toasted.

Add wine and stir well until it

has been absorbed into the rice.

Ladle the hot stock in one ladle

at a time. Stir well between each

addition so the rice sucks up the

stock and becomes creamy.

Continue until the rice is

tender and creamy and the sauce

around the rice is thick and silky.

If too thick, loosen with a little

more stock, or if too runny cook

out for a little longer. You may or

may not need all the stock.

Adjust the seasoning and

finish by adding half the grated

parmesan and stir to combine.

To make the fennel and olive

dressing, chop the fennel fronds

and add to the olives and zest of

one lemon.

Stir together, add the olive

oil and enough lemon juice to

balance the dressing.

To serve the risotto, spoon

on to your plate, sprinkle over

a little more grated parmesan.

Spoon over a little fennel and

olive dressing.

Save your ripe bananas

to make this sweet after

dinner treat

Banana loaf

50g icing sugar

Handful dried banana chips, for
