$1.8 million

approved for

contentious

Main North Rd

bus lanes

• By Claire Booker

FUNDING HAS finally been

confirmed for the contentious bus

lanes on Main North Rd.

The $1.8 million project, which

was scheduled to start in July, will

see bus lanes put in between Winston

Ave and Grassmere St.

Work on the project is now expected

to start early next year and

should take about four months to

complete.

The issue of bus lanes on Main

North Rd has been contentious

since it was first raised in 2017

when it was revealed the project

would mean a loss of on-street

parking for businesses between

Harewood Rd and Winston Ave.

The other concern for residents

was the turning movements at the

intersection of Grassmere St and

Main North Rd. Both of these key

issues were mitigated by altering

where the bus lanes would start

and approving traffic signals.

Improvements will include a

full-time bus lane running north

from Winston Ave to Grassmere

St, a signalised intersection at

Grassmere St, walking and biking

improvements, layout change to

the Northlands Shopping Centre

car park entrance and more trees

on Main North Rd.

Tina ‘wows’ at awards show

• By Claire Booker

ST ALBANS designer Tina

Hutchison-Thomas ‘wowed’ the

judges at the annual World of

WearableArt competition, taking

out third place in the mythology

section.

Mrs Huthchison-Thomas is

the only Christchurch designer

to have won an award

this year, and last year

she won the New Zealand

Design Award.

“Only in New

Zealand would you

get the opportunity

to compete against

international talent

from the confines of

your garage,” she said.

This year’s WearableArt

awards show

featured 108 finalist garments by

115 designers from 22 countries

and regions competing for a

share of more than $180,000 in

prizes.

Mrs Hutchison-Thomas’ garment

The Moirai- the Shape of

Us, was made up of three different

garments based on Roman

and Greek mythology, where the

Moirai are three sisters of fate or

destiny.

“I wanted to keep working

Mrs Hutchison-Thomas

first learnt to sew at Cobham

Intermediate when she was 11,

and now she is renowned on the

WearableArt stage.

The winner of

the mythology section

this year was a

designer from the

United States, and the

second prize went to a

Taiwanese designer.

This year the 115

finalist designers were

presented with six

design briefs, which

subsequently, form

the six worlds of the

stage show.

Three of these thematic worlds

are recurring - Aotearoa, Avantgarde

and Open, and three

are new for 2019 - Mythology,

Dame Suzie Moncrieff, WoW

founder and resident judge said

each year gets harder to judge as

there are so many outstanding

entries.

GREEN LIGHT: After a more

has approved funding for the

Last week, the NZ Transport

“After the recent review and

Community pantry in high demand

• By Claire Booker

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

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

Coordinator take families on tours of

their new dementia community, their

smiles show a team full of pride in their

new development. They have much to be

proud of, the 20 bed dementia community

has opened recently, welcoming four

residents already.

With 70,000 Kiwis living with dementia,

Alzheimers New Zealand predicts the

number will increase to more than

170,000 by 2050. Earlier this year, Bupa

was named the first aged care provider

to receive the national Dementia Friendly

Award from Alzheimers New Zealand.

Chris says the Christchurch community

has been asking for more focus on

dementia and the new Bethesda

community goes some way to fulfilling the

need for more dementia specialist care.

“We’re really pleased to have this

new community for people living

with dementia. It’s a safe and warm

environment with gardens surrounding

the rooms and comfortable lounge areas

for families and residents to relax. I’m sure

people will be very comfortable here,”

Chris says.

More good news for Bupa Bethesda as

the care home recently received its third

consecutive four year accreditation from

the Ministry of Health.

Climate issue leads to award Special October

events for cyclists

• By Claire Booker

EMMA TAYLOR’S generation

is full of leaders striking for

climate action, and she used this

passion to create a science fair

entry.

The 17-year-old St Margaret’s

College pupil placed third-best at

the NIWA Canterbury-Westland

Schools Science Fair.

More than 200 students from

26 schools entered the event held

at Canterbury University.

Emma’s entry focused on the

impact of ocean acidification

and the entry explored how

pH and temperature affect

the concentration of calcium

carbonate that green-lipped

mussel shells leach.

“I wanted to do a project

that would have a real-world

application. Climate change

and ocean acidification affect

us all, especially here in New

Zealand with our primary

industries and the communities

they support. New Zealand’s

territory is largely ocean with it

playing an important part in our

culture and heritage. We have

a responsibility to care for it,”

Emma said.

This year was Emma’s first

time entering the science section

of the fair, but she entered the

technology section in 2017.

Her entry took months of

work totalling about 30 hours to

complete the entry.

Emma said climate change is a

huge issue for young people.

“Around the world, young people

have been at the forefront of

the voices that call for measures

to avert climate change. Our

generation is becoming more and

more environmentally concerned

and proactive,” she said.

Emma chose to focus her

science fair entry on greenlipped

mussels because the

seafood industry is an important

primary industry for New

Zealand.

She said because greenlipped

mussels live close to the

shoreline, they are particularly

vulnerable to our changing temperature.

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

$1500 raised

for breast

milk bank

A QUIZ fundraiser has raised

more than $1500 for the Rotary

community breast milk bank.

The bank, based at St George’s

hospital in Merivale, is the only

centre in New Zealand to supply

pasteurised donor breast milk to

babies in need outside the neonatal

unit.

More than 150 babies have

been supported with the “liquid

gold” since the bank’s opening

last year.

The service is run entirely

by volunteers, with mothers

donating their excess breast

milk.

The milk bank runs entirely

on community support,

therefore fundraising is

required to meet the annual

operating costs of $30,000.

The Rotary Club of New

Horizons held the quiz night at

the Elmwood Trading Co and

more than 100 participants went

along to support the cause.

Anna Bush, president of

Rotary Christchurch New

Horizons was grateful with the

amount raised for the cause.

“This is thanks to the

generosity of those who

participated in the quiz,” she

said.

LOCALLY OWNED

SINCE 1964

Smiths Mitre 10 all started in 1964, when Reg Smith

began trading as a coal merchant at 3 Waimairi Rd.

Over time Reg expanded these humble beginnings

into a complete hardware store, joining the Mitre 10

group in 1981.

Reg opened a second store in Farrington Ave,

Bishopdale in 1983. The store expanded a couple of

times on the same site, before moving into an old

supermarket site at 135 Farrington Ave in 1988. It

didn’t take long for this store to become over flowing

with products, so it was excellent timing when in

1998 the old Farmers building next door became

available, tripling the size of the store.

The Smiths were looking for a larger site again when

the earthquakes badly damaged the Sanitarium

buildings, leading to a shortage of Marmite.

Sanitarium and Smiths came up with an agreement to

share the site for a number of years, so Marmite could

be continued to be made and a MEGA store built. In

2017 the production of Marmite in Christchurch had

discontinued and the space now became available

for the existing Mitre 10 Mega store to develop larger.

October 2019 saw the expansion complete on the

existing site. The retail hall has increased by 30% with

6,850 additional products, the outdoor garden area

has doubled. Also having a fully functional Columbus

café installed means 54 Harewood road is even more

MEGA than ever and we are all really excited to show

you the new store, after 36 years in the making.

Papanui Mega is the sister store to Mitre 10 Mega

Hornby and Mitre 10 Beckenham.

So much Moore than

just a drycleaners

Moores Drycleaners on Papanui Road

is so much more than just a drycleaning

business - it is part of the fabric of Merivale

itself. Their terrific customer service,

expertise and highly-professional standards

have seen them succeed on the same spot

for over half a century. In fact, it is the

oldest business still operating in the same

location in Merivale, and also is the oldest

family-owned and operated drycleaners

in the whole of

Canterbury.

What makes it

such a local success?

Owner Greg Moore’s

father began Moores

Drycleaning back in

1961 and Greg joined

him straight out of

school. Having been

there ever since, his

own knowledge is

unparalleled, and it is

the focus on meeting

the needs of customers

that makes them stand

out. These days, his daughter has joined the

team, making her the third generation to work

in the business.

Their focus is on providing a terrific

service to local clients and meeting all their

drycleaning needs. Whether you are spring

cleaning and want to freshen up all your

drapes, duvets and bedding, or have toughto-remove

spots, they are on hand to help.

They will make sure that garments such as

suits and dresses look as good as new when

they return them to you, and they are experts

at working with delicate fabrics in evening

gowns and cocktail dresses. They are also

the go-to drycleaners for wedding dresses,

recommended by many of the region’s bridal

salons to their new brides. In fact, they are

just about the largest drycleaners for wedding

dresses in the south island.

In spite of their long tradition in this

industry, Moores Drycleaning have moved

with the times. They now have an ecocleaning

machine which uses a solution of

plant extracts as its cleaning agent which is

far friendlier to the environment. In fact,

they have been leading greener approaches

to drycleaning as they have been recycling

for over 40 years, their plastic bags are

biodegradable and their coat-hangers are

manufactured from recycled plastic which

they encourage their customers to recycle and

return.

You can find them at 178 Papanui Road,

where they are open six days a week (closed

Sundays) or give them a call at 03 355 5942.

They will be happy to help.

Pithie, CBHS claim national road titles

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

LAURENCE PITHIE showed his class in

leading the way for the Christchurch Boys’

High School road cycling team at the

nationals at Feilding last week.

Pithie won two gold medals at the

junior track world championships in Germany

last month and appeared to have no

trouble switching back to the road.

He helped CBHS retain the Sir Bernard

Fergusson Trophy in winning the under-20

team time trial and then he won

individual gold in the under-20 points

race and road race respectively.

Christchurch Boys’ clocked 23min

38.97sec for the 16km loop, holding off

the efforts of the Cambridge Boys’ High

School combination by just 0.031sec – the

blink of an eye. Palmerston North Boys’

High School were third at 16sec behind.

Long time mentor Gary McNaughton

said he was thrilled with the performance.

“These boys have been with me since

year nine and I have seen them grow into

fine young men. For them to go back to

back is an amazing feeling, with four riders

at the end finishing the job,” he said.

“The friendship and camaraderie

amongst themselves, their coaches and

with me means I consider them family.”

The success continued for Christchurch

Boys’ High School.

It proved a triple treat for the double

junior track world champion Pithie who

has quickly picked up his form on the

WINNERS AGAIN: The CBHS under-20 road cycling team have won their

age-group title for the second consecutive year. PHOTO: CBHS CYCLING ​

road since his brilliant efforts on the track

in Germany last month.

Pithie edged under-19 national representative

Xander White (Cambridge

High) and fellow Madison world champion

Kiaan Watts (Hamilton Boys) in a

sprint finish in the road race.

There was more solid team work from

his Christchurch Boys’ High teammates

in the under-20 Points Race for Pithie

bright future in cycling.

to dominate the sprints with 12 points

ahead of Watts and Jensen Foster (Saint

Kentigern).

It was made doubly challenging as rain

fell with the high winds for the boy’s race,

which was reduced from 12 to seven laps.

“It was treacherous conditions so I went

hard as I knew I could put some pressure

on from the start,” he said.

“The Christchurch Boys’ High boys got

around me towards the end and helped

me bring it home.

“We started off the weekend taking

home the gold in the team time trial

which set-up the boys well and we were

all in good spirits. And we had a couple

of boys away in the break today – Griffin

Spencer and Guy Yarrell – and it all

played out well to bring it into a sprint on

the final lap and I took it from there.”

Nearly 600 riders from 84 schools

took part in the 52nd annual schools

championship, staged over three days.

Tasty Bites

NOR’WEST NEWS

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

Ingredients

140g butter, softened, plus extra

for the tin

140g caster sugar

2 large eggs, beaten

140g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 ripe bananas, mashed

50g icing sugar

Handful dried banana chips, for

decoration

Directions

Heat oven to 180 deg C.

Butter a 900g loaf tin and line

the base and sides with baking

parchment.

Cream 140g softened butter

and 140g caster sugar until light

and fluffy, then slowly add two

beaten large eggs with a little of

the 140g flour.

Fold in the remaining flour,

one tsp baking powder and two

mashed bananas.

Pour into the tin and bake

for about 30min until a skewer

comes out clean.

Cool in the tin for

10min, then remove to a wire

rack.

Mix 50g icing sugar with twothree

tsp water to make a runny

icing.

Drizzle the icing across the top

of the cake and decorate with a

handful of banana chips.
