MAYORAL HOPEFUL Darryll

Park has pledged his support

for residents opposing the

controversial Fulton Hogan quarry

planned for Templeton.

But he does not believe he can

stop it from going ahead if he is

elected mayor.

Mr Park said going forward he

will support residents through his

experience against the Yaldhurst

quarries.

He told Western News his involvement

going forward will be supporting

residents through his historical

Yaldhurst experience which has

“delivered advantageous” outcomes

on quarries in the past.

It comes as the Templeton

Residents’ Association are preparing

their verbal submission for the

upcoming hearing next month

on Fulton Hogan’s 170ha quarry

for Curraghs, Dawsons, Jones and

Maddisons Rds.

The consenting conditions

residents would like to see if in

“the worst case” the Fulton Hogan

quarry is approved will be included

in the TRA’s submission.

TRA treasurer Jolene Eagar said it

is about preparing for the best and

worst-case scenario.

Feedback on Templeton sougnt

LARGE developments planned

for Templeton has prompted

a public meeting to gauge

community feedback on the

township’s changing landscape.

Templeton residents will meet

with the city council this month

to seek feedback

on what

they would

like to see on

the site if the

cemetery and

sports park

goes ahead.

Jolene Eagar

The city

council is

planning to

transform two-thirds of 100ha of

land it owns into a cemetery and

zone the rest of it into a sports

park.

But is still yet to go through

a resource consent and public

consultation process.

City council’s head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said it wants to

get feedback from the Templeton

community about what they

would like to see on the site if the

cemetery and sports park went

ahead.

Mr Rutledge said it has considered

how the township’s roading

infrastructure will be impacted

if the developments go ahead,

but want to get early input from

residents.

“As such, we currently have

no firm designs for the site that

allow us to quantify the expected

changes to Templeton, the

roading infrastructure or how

we will address these changes,”

he said.

But he said once the community

has consulted and finalised

its discussions with adjacent

landowners it will be in a position

to design the development

in a manner which minimises

the impact on Templeton.

do you think the proposed

developments for Templeton

will affect the township’s

roading infrastructure?

will mean for the township.

“The quarry is already a

huge concern for us. If it is

going to add more traffic, how

said.

Latest traffic figures show

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.

Staffing issues

force cafe to close

•From page 1

“We have been struggling to

get enough staff for the past six

months. It is very difficult,” she

said.

The cafe has received a large

amount of support online with

many praising the cafe.

Mrs Schaper said she has heard

staffing is an issue not only in

hospitality industries but retail

as well.

Mrs Schaper said the cafe needs

seven full-time staff to operate,

especially with the busy season

coming up.

It has five existing staff at the

moment including herself and

her daughter (some working parttime)

but has three leaving at the

end of the year.

She said the cafe has tried to

train people up on a three-month

trial – but they often leave.

Kawa Cafe is a family-owned

business run by Janice, her

husband Hans and their daughter

Alicia specialising in organic

food.

The cafe was established on

Avoca Valley about 10 years ago

but due to the earthquakes was

closed. The cafe reopened in

Halswell in 2014.

CLOSED: Kawa Cafe on

Quaifes Rd.

While Mrs Schaper said she is

unsure what the next chapter will

be, the organic vegetables grown

by Mr Schaper will continue to be

sold at the Opawa Market.

Mrs Schaper said she is going

to miss the customers and has

received many messages, cards

and people phoning up in

support.

“It is very sweet, we get such

lovely customers. They have been

supporting us all this time.”

Social enterprise calls

Sections from $191,000

for speed limit review in Wigram Skies

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Michael

Toothill

“OUR TEAM literally take their

lives in their own hands each

time they cross the road.”

That is how Kilmarnock Enterprises

chief executive officer

Michael Toothill describes the

day-to-day difficulties members

of the organisation, who have a

number of disabilities,

face

when walking

across Lodestar

Ave.

That is why

the social enterprise,

based

on Lodestar

Ave, is advocating

for the

speed limit to be lowered on the

road as part of a proposed speed

limit of roads in Wigram Skies.

The enterprise provides employment,

training and support

for people with disabilities.

The city council is considering

lowering the speed limits

of roads in the Wigram Skies

subdivision from 50km/h to

40km/h – including Lodestar.

Mr Toothill, along with members,

as well as general manager

Robbi Shearer made a presentation

pushing for the changes to be

Crossing the road is all the

more challenging for his team

Mr Toothill described some of

the challenges members of the

enterprise faced is spatial and

situation awareness and the ability

to make quick decisions.

Bridget Platt said she often

feels anxious when she has

on a sunny morning when visibility

is more difficult and the

traffic is busy.

Lodestar Ave is “dangerous at

“Even though you look both

ways the cars sneak up on you

and speed is a factor around

other things.”

Rachel Meads told the board

getting across Lodestar Ave in

the morning was “absolutely

impossible.”

“It scares the living wits out

of me.”

The enterprise is also calling

for warning flashing signals and

traffic down.

As of March this year on average

2707 vehicles are travelling

on the road daily – an increase

from September 2018 of 2414

daily.

For the past four years, noisy

trucks on Lodestar Ave have

been a long-standing issue for

residents living at Lady Wigram

Retirement Village.

At the board meeting, the

community board received a

memorandum from city council

staff on plans to undertake a

pre-assessment of a speed limit

review for the Wigram Skies

area.

City council staff will be

discussing the proposed speed

limit review with organisations

including police, Wigram

Primary School and businesses

before reporting to the board

this month.

Mr Shearer said Lodestar Ave

coming up for a speed limit

review was helpful and a good

start.

$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.

History of Halswell on show at quarry

HALSWELL’S history

dating back to 1850 will be

showcased this month.

More than 1000 photos

of the area were compiled

together by former Halswell

Quarry Park ranger, John

Moore.

A retired farmer, Mr Moore

has lived in the Halswell area

since 1978.

Mr Moore helped transform

the Halswell Quarry into the

park that it is today throughout

the 1990s and early 2000s.

The majority of his collection

was passed down

from late photographer Lyal

Browne and late historian

Doug Ridder.

Mr Ridder lived in Halswell

for 81 years, until he passed

away in 2002, aged 85.

A lot of the history work focused

on the Halswell Quarry,

which opened in the 1860s

and closed in 1990.

The photographs will be

displayed at the Halswell

Quarry Information Centre

October 19 and 20.

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.

Clean audit result

for council

THE CITY council has received

a clean result from Audit New

Zealand.

City councillors adopted the

2019 annual report outlining

the city council’s financial

performance at their meeting on

September 26.

They acknowledged a

range of achievements across

Christchurch during the year.

These included big projects such

as Ngā Puna Wai, Tūranga and

the town hall as well as smaller

projects.

Deputy chair of the city council

audit and risk management committee

Raf Manji said the second

clean audit in as many years was

a significant achievement.

The report shows the city council

invested $408 million on city

services and facilities.

This funded work to replace

worn out or damaged underground

services, such as sewers

and water supply pipes, improvements

to roads, new cycleways,

bus priority lanes and new community

facilities.

The city council’s asset base

has also grown. It now has $13.3

billion in assets, up from $13.1

billion in the previous year.

Capital expenditure for the

year was $408 million. This is

lower than the planned amount

of $480 million and down on the

$501 million last year.

Climate issue leads to award

• 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

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

Canterbury-Westland Schools Science Fair for her entry on

acidification affects us all.’

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.

Park backs Templeton residents

•From page 1

“We want the application

declined but should the commissioners

decide to approve

the application we want to make

sure we have the proper conditions

in place that will ensure the

community and environment

is protected,” Mrs

Eagar said.

“He (Darryll Park)

was quite keen to

help us with some

advice around that

from his previous

experience with the

conditions,” she said.

Mrs Eagar said

Mr Park has told the

residents he does not

want the quarry to

go ahead in Templeton

because he

understands as a Yaldhurst resident

what it is like to live near a

quarry.

Mr Park said he is committed

to supporting the community

and wants to share his previous

experience of being involved

with quarry hearings as a Yaldhurst

resident.

In the past, Mr Park, who is

currently a Yaldhurst resident,

gave evidence as a witness and

in support of his neighbour

John Payne at the Roberts Road

Waterloo Business Park quarry

hearing, due to his lifestyle block

being two properties removed

from the site.

He also instigated former

Selwyn MP Amy Adams and

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Megan Woods to

attend an on-site Roberts Rd

meeting which ensued a meeting

with the city council’s mayor’s

office.

Mr Park is selling

up to move from his

Yaldhurst lifestyle

block into the CBD.

Mrs Eagar said it is

important residents

get support from Mr

Park if incumbent

mayor Lianne Dalziel

is not re-elected.

Mr Park also clarified

with the residents

Darryll Park ​ his friendship with

Road Metals managing

director Murray Francis’ late

father Stan which dates back 40

years.

He said he knows Fulton

Hogan general manager Craig

Stewart in his relationship as his

lifestyle block in Yaldhurst is two

properties removed from the

Fulton Hogan quarry on Pound

Rd.

“I have been involved in

hearings against these quarries

and acquaintances play no

part in my role in challenging

them in getting the best result

for me and the community I’m

supporting,” he said.

Young karter sharpening his racing skills

TWELVE-YEAR-OLD ST

Joseph’s School pupil Louis

Sharp is a winner and recordsetter

at every level of his fouryear

motorsport career with

multiple championships to his

name.

Now the talented karter

faces his biggest challenge to

date – making his European

racing debut at the ROK Cup

superfinal event in Italy this

weekend.

Racing at the South Garda

track near Lonato, east of Milan,

Louis is one of 134 entrants

aged nine to 13 from around the

world competing in the Vortex

Mini category for the World

ROK Cup title.

The young karter qualified

for the superfinal by winning

New Zealand’s Vortex Mini

national sprint championship.

He then qualified a second time

by winning the New Zealand

ROK cup championship, an

accumulation of points across

four major New Zealand

events, becoming the first Kiwi

competitor to secure both

superfinal qualifying entries.

Hawke’s Bay karter Tom

Bewley was runner-up to Louis

in the ROK Cup, and therefore

earned the second Superfinal

entry in the Vortex Mini ROK

category.

This is Louis’ first European

competition and the young

champion says he’s very excited

and a little bit nervous. He’s

put in plenty of groundwork,

watching races at the South

Garda track on YouTube and

racing hard to defend his

McLaren Racing Mainland

Series title at KartSport

Canterbury just prior to

departing for Italy.

“I’ve been watching previous

year’s finals and think I’ve

worked out where to pass on this

circuit,” he said.

Louis’ main goal is to reach

the A final with the top 30

competitors – the finals take

place on October 12.

He knows it’s a big goal as

many of his competitors have

raced at the circuit and at

an event with this intensity

previously. He is mindful that

he is racing for the first time at

this highly-regarded circuit in

a kart run by a team he’s only

just met and it’s a World Cup

event. But Louis knows this is an

opportunity to learn; he wants to

SPORT

‘I can’t wait; it will be so

much fun’

– Louis Sharp

make the most of the experience

as he is young enough to

compete at this event next year if

he qualifies again.

“The track looks to be very fast

and I will need to qualify well

to have a chance of making the

A final. I’m in a good team with

the Parolin AV Racing team who

have won it in previous years.

I can’t wait; it will be so much

fun,” said Louis.

Ultimately, he would like to

go all the way to formula 1 or

IndyCars.

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

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

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.
