Safety

upgrade

for busy

railway

crossing

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PEDESTRIAN GATES will

be placed at the Carmen Rd in

Hornby railway crossing in a

bid to make it safer for school

children.

The safety improvement

has been welcomed by the

community. A New Zealand

Transport Agency spokeswoman

said it will be a “big

boost” for safety.

The work is part

of a $26 million

nationwide project,

commissioned

by NZTA and

KiwiRail, to

deliver safety

improvements

at level crossings across New

Zealand.

Robin

Sutton

Hornby High School principal

Robin Sutton said anything to

make the crossing safer is a good

step.

“I do think railway lines

in general and teenagers are

often not a good combination,”

he said.

Religious groups to have their say

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RELIGIOUS GROUPS across

the city will be consulted over

the plan to transform land in

Templeton into a large cemetery.

City council staff will meet

with more than 40 groups later

this month to gauge views on

the proposed development,

which would provide for the

city’s burial needs over the next

60 years.

It is planning to turn about

two-thirds of the 100ha site it

owns at 173 Maddisons Rd into

a cemetery, while the rest would

be developed as a sports park.

Estimates show the city has

about 10 years

left before its

cemeteries are at

full capacity.

A city council

spokesman said

the reason for

the consultation

Jolene

Eagar

is to understand

the groups’

burial-related

needs and find out what features

they want in the cemetery

before the design work starts.

The city council aims to

obtain early pre-design feedback

from key stakeholders, with

a draft development plan

expected to go out for formal

consultation by September.

The city council is also

currently negotiating with

adjacent landowners on

purchasing additional land

to enable more space for the

cemetery.

The spokesman said the

feedback on the plan has

generally been positive but

people are keen to get more

details.

groups on the

cemetery.

Association treasurer Jolene

Eagar hasn’t heard any negative

feedback on the cemetery.

“It is not right next to us, it is a

bit removed. It is not bordering

any of the Templeton residents.”

She said it would be different

if the cemetery was increased

in size to such an extent that it

comes up to residents’ property

boundaries.

The city council is also engaging

with Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri

Rūnanga and Te Taumutu

Rūnanga. It also plans to have

initial discussions with funeral

directors, groups representing

lost babies and infants, green

and natural burial groups and

the RSA.

A meeting was scheduled

to be held yesterday with

Templeton residents over the

plan.

In Brief

FAMILY FUN DAY

Painter produces

artwork to raise

cash for charity

•From page 1

The results came back clear,

much to Ms Burdett’s relief,

but she continued painting

and compiling artwork for the

calendar.

She developed a passion

for art when she was at high

school in Whakatane, and says

painting is not

hard for her –

she just lets her

feelings flow on

to the canvas.

Ms Burdett’s

feature piece for

the calendar La

Femme portrays femininity and

hope.

“It had to be beautiful and

feminine,” she said.

Family is an important part

of Ms Burdett’s life and the

inspiration behind her art,

which is mostly done using oil

paint.

“Every painting has a story,

people may not get it, but

they just have to use their

imagination,” she said.

‘This is not perfect, I’m

not perfect, but this is

through my eyes’

– Lorelei Burdett

Each painting generally takes

Ms Burdett about two days to

complete, depending on how

“hyped-up” she is about it.

Many of the pieces in the

calendar are colourful and

dedicated to members of her

family, including her late

husband Peter, who died in 2009

from pancreatic

cancer.

After Peter

died, she

dedicated a

calendar to him

and painted

another one for

the CD Kids Hospital Appeal in

2017.

Ms Burdett said her art may

not be perfect, but that is part of

the beauty of it.

“This is not perfect, I’m not

perfect, but this is through my

eyes, and that’s how I like it,” she

said.

Crossing to get safety gates

•From page 1

Mr Sutton said while the

crossing is a safety issue for

everyone, teenagers don’t

understand a train can’t

stop as quickly as a

vehicle and they often

listen to music while

walking to the school.

This makes the crossing

even more dangerous

for them.

Hornby resident Mark

Peters expressed the

same view. He said the

improvements are a “huge step

forward” as young people often

Mark

Peters

have their headphones in when

using the crossing.

He said having a barrier in

place to make young people

aware of the crossing

is a good idea.

“You get a fair bit

of pedestrian traffic

through the crossing.

When trains go

through there they

do tend to be doing a

fair rate of knots,” Mr

Peters said.

Hornby Primary

School principal Gary Roberts

and resident Marc Duff also

endorsed the initiative.

“Anything that is an

improvement for the children

has got to be good for the

community,” Mr Duff

said.

Mr Roberts said the

pedestrian gates are a

“marvellous move” as

Carmen Rd and the

railway crossing are very

busy. But he wasn’t sure

whether children from

Hornby Primary will be

affected by the changes

as he does not know how many

pupils use the crossing.

Pool to stay open longer

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TEMPLETON RESIDENTS

calling for their swimming pool

to be open for longer over the

summer season will have their

wish granted.

But they will have to fork out

$80 for a membership if they

want to use the pool.

The city council has established

a new system where memberships

to use the swimming

pool can be purchased for $80

per household.

An exception to the rule is

casual users will be allowed to

use the facility as long as they are

with a member.

This year the swimming pool

will be open for 19 weeks - a

large increase compared to previous

years where it was only open

for 11 weeks over the summer.

The pool will now be open

from November 16 to March 29

- allowing the pool to be utilised

by Templeton School in the first

term.

City council’s head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox

said while the pools hours will

be increased, there will be no additional

costs.

It costs $36,000 per year to run

the pool.

The changes come after the city

council received feedback calling

for longer swimming pool hours

in Templeton.

The Norman Kirk Memorial

Pool in Lyttelton, Sumner Community

Pool, Belfast Pool and

Port Levy have a similar system

with memberships ranging from

$60-$150.

Templeton Residents’ Association

treasurer Jolene Eagar said it

has not been discussed with the

community and she is not sure

where people will stand on the

issue.

Earlier this year the TRA was

approached by the city council

to ask if they were interested

in helping manage the pool to

increase hours - but Mrs Eagar

said it has not heard from the

city council since then.

Due to the new system, the

pool will solely be run by the city

council.

Mrs Eagar said she would have

preferred the city council to ask

people how they felt about the

membership system rather than

going ahead with it.

“We don’t want to see disappointed

kids walking away from

the pool because they don’t have

a card or they are not with someone

with a card,” she said.

But resident Mel Himin,

who has a 4-year-old child and

6 month-old baby, said if the

membership system is a way the

pool can be kept open for longer

LONGER HOURS: The

Templeton swimming pool

will be open for longer this

summer.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

then it is a good option.

Comments on the Templeton

(N.Z) Community & Residents

page was generally supportive

of the initiative with many

residents pleased the pool will be

open for longer.

But concerns were raised over

the lack of lifeguards at the pool.

Lifeguards will only be at the

pool from 7am-9am daily to run

30 minute safety inductions for

all key holders, sell memberships

and carry out necessary cleaning

and maintenance.

Keys for Templeton Pool

can be purchased for $80 from

November 16 until February 7

from the pool site at Kirk Rd,

between 7am and 9am.

Gang members

in alleged

home invasion

over cellphone

• By Sophie Cornish

THE SALE OF a second-hand

cellphone resulted in a home

invasion involving a gun and

baseball bat.

Police allege two patched

Bandidos gang members

bashed down the door of a house

on Curletts Rd, Sockburn, and

assaulted a man.

Two brothers, Rawiri Takuira

Kiri, 26, of Waltham, and Lee

Teomaori Kiri, 30, of Aranui,

have been charged over the

alleged incident, which is

understood to be a dispute over a

cellphone which was sold but did

not work properly.

They appeared in the district

court on Monday, facing joint

charges of possessing a firearm

and armed robbery with a

baseball bat.

Police allege they stole $15

from the male victim, who was

assaulted during the incident.

More charges are likely.

They were remanded in custody

until December, when they are

next due to appear in court.

It is understood the male

victim’s parents and two children

were at home at the time of the

attack.

QUICK, CLEAR and succinct.

These were just a few tips

Sockburn’s Eloise Smith, a

Canterbury University doctoral

student, needed to keep in

mind at the Asia-Pacific 3MT

Competition in Brisbane.

The ‘three minute thesis’,

or 3MT, was an annual

competition in which postgraduate

students explained

their thesis in 3min with just

one presentation slide.

A university-level thesis can

be up to 80,000 words. There

were 56 finalists from Australia,

New Zealand, Oceania and

Asia in the competition.

A Canterbury University

spokeswoman said it was proud

of how Miss Smith represented

her research and the university.

In late July, she won the

College of Science round of the

UC 3MT competition.

In her presentation Weak

or What?, Miss Smith covered

her research into swallowing

disorders.

Swallowing disorders have

the ability to impact a person’s

ability to eat and drink safely

and can occur as a result of

a stroke, brain injury and

cerebral palsy.

Miss Smith’s research looks

to identify new ways to assess

swallowing disorders with a

focus on measuring muscle

Catchpole signs off after

60 years with Hornby

• By Jacob Page

JOHN CATCHPOLE took a lastminute

ticket to the Canterbury

Rugby Awards night last week

and ended up being named

volunteer of the year.

“My son offered me a ticket

because he said his wife couldn’t

go and I thought it would be a

good night then all of a sudden I

hear my name being called.”

The outgoing Hornby Rugby

Club president said it was quite a

surprise.

“It was an amazing feeling,

totally overwhelming.”

Mr Catchpole, who was born

and raised in Hornby, first joined

the club in 1959 as an under-5

player.

A talented first-five eighth, he

moved through the ranks at the

club and made his senior debut

the year Hornby was promoted

to the top-flight of Christchurch

rugby in 1975.

He played senior rugby until

1983 before a fourth grade A side

which went unbeaten for five

seasons and a total of 83 games.

He was still playing into his

40s but joined the committee as

club captain in 1998 and became

president in 2005, a position he

held until the end of this winter.

from work at the end of the year

so it just felt right.

“Hornby has always been home

for me, we moved out of the area

five years ago and went to Prebbleton

but I still work in Hornby.

“My favourite saying is that

we give people a chance to get

involved and participate.

“The club has been a big part

friends, people I see regularly for

Mr Catchpole, who was made

Plan to stop number plate

theft fails to gain traction

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A BOLD plan to stop vehicle

licence plate thefts may have

come unstuck.

The Hornby Community

Patrol is set to ask businesses to

fit number plates with anti-theft

screws to their fleet vehicles.

It aims to stop people stealing

licence plates, fitting them to

other vehicles, and carrying out

crimes to avoid being identified.

Car sales yards in Hornby

will also be asked to take part.

The anti-theft screws cost $5 to

install.

But car dealers and other

businesses contacted by Western

News were not enthusiastic

about the idea. Avon City Ford

chief executive John Luxton

said it has never had issues with

number plate thefts.

either.

McLean said he wouldn’t spend

“In the 18 years I have been

here, I have never had a number

Campbell Motors owner

Grant Campbell said he would

consider the initiative but

did not believe it would stop

removing the bolts.

Judith McCleary’s hands in the

audience.

“They had been rehearsing for

weeks. They acted their part very

seriously, which made it even

funnier and it was all in slow

motion,” she said.

Performances included owner

saxophone.

RICCARTON KNIGHTS prop

Delane Luke’s return to rugby

league has seen him selected for

the New Zealand Universities

tour of Fiji this week.

The team will play against two

Fiji Universities teams and an

Australian Universities team –

and the prop is eager to prove

himself.

“I only got back into rugby

league this year, and if you’d

told me at the start that I’d

get the chance to represent

my country at the end of it, I

wouldn’t have believed you,” the

22-year-old said.

“I’m very honoured to have

this chance.”

Luke is completing a Bachelor

of Arts, majoring in te reo

Maori and indigenous studies at

Canterbury University.

He played junior league for

Halswell before a European

rugby trip with the St Thomas’

under-16s enticed him to switch

codes.

He tried his hand in the

midfield and at loose-forward

before being converted into a

prop.

However, with several friends

playing league at Riccarton, he

decided this year was the right

time to get back into it.

“I started off in the Bs and

LEAGUE

played two games there but

played premier for the rest of the

season and loved it.

“I was nervous initially

but not having to push in the

scrums or worry about lineouts

was good and meant I could just

focus on carrying the ball and

my defence.”

The New Zealand Universities

coaching staff watched one

of Luke’s club games without

telling him they would be there,

and he found out after the game

he had made the team.

“It’s an exciting opportunity

and I can’t wait to make the

most of it.”

Daniel hits the books after

bringing home third NZ title

• By Jacob Page

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High

boxer Daniel Meehan is happy

to juggle his boxing dream with

studying for his NCEA level one

exams.

Fresh from winning his third

consecutive national amateur

boxing title, the 16-year-old

was hitting the books last week

rather than the punching bag.

Daniel, who trains at Papanui’s

Smiling Tigers Boxing Gym,

won the junior under-60kg New

Zealand title at the tournament

in Hastings and was also named

most scientific junior boxer.

“It felt good to win another

national title,” he said.

“I didn’t know much about my

two opponents, so I just tried to

control what I could control.

“I just wanted to control the

ring (with foot movement) and

use my jab to keep scoring. Be as

scientific as possible.”

He is following in the footsteps

of his father, Danny, who had

more than 120 fights when he

was based in Manawatu.

Daniel has been training for

the past six years under Smiling

Tigers coach Mark Fuller.

He initially started hitting

pads with his dad in the garage

and progressed from there.

He has big goals. “I’d like to

compete at the Commonwealth

Games in 2022,” he said.

HARD-HITTING:

Daniel Meehan

has added a third

New Zealand title

to his growing list

of achievements.

ASSOCIATION

“I’ll be 19 by then so that’s

what I’ve set my sights on.”

Daniel trains five times a week

and will not ease up even with

exams looming.

Fuller, who was also one of

the Canterbury coaches at the

tournament, said Daniel has a

bright future. “He has a great

work ethic, and, yes, he has

the genes that help him but he

is extremely dedicated,” Fuller

said.

“He’s a smart boxer in there

and knows what he is about. I

don’t think the Commonwealth

Games is too big of a goal for

him if he keeps on this path.”

EXPANSION: The opening of Briscoes Homewares at Bush Inn leads the way for even more

exciting improvements at the shopping centre.

IMPROVEMENTS: The three-year expansion of the Bush Inn

Shopping Centre is nearing completion.

riscoes opens at Bush Inn

SUBSTANTIAL developments

happening at Bush Inn Shopping

Centre gathered pace last week

with the opening of Briscoes

Homewares on Thursday.

“Three years’ work has resulted

in a stunning new building,”

said Andy Bell property and

development manager for owner

Ganson Group Ltd.

“We are delighted to welcome

Briscoes to Bush Inn and it

demonstrates what we are doing

here, investing and creating a

whole new shopping environment

at the centre is working”

In addition to Briscoes, The

Provedore – a new grocery and

provisions complex will open at

Bush Inn in about December this

year.

This comprises a selection of

speciality food retailers in all

areas of grocery and provisions

including a metro style supermarket,

fine wines and spirits outlet,

European butcher and deli, seafood

outlet, bulk food outlet with

around 18 retailers in total.

“Make no mistake this is not

boutique or high-end,” said Mr

Bell.

“We have taken the initiative in

replacing our supermarket with a

hard working, highly competitive

grocery shopping offering – you

will be able to get everything that

the supermarket provides and a

whole lot more – better quality

and better priced, every day of the

week”

The Provedore is presented in

an open plan style with plenty of

natural light, cobbled walkways

between outlets, and is intended

to provide a unique alternative to

supermarket shopping.

“The Provedore is well leased

but now that retailers can see it,

they are really getting what we are

trying to achieve,” says assistant

manager Rees Hunt.

“We still have some opportunities

and anyone interested should

contact me fairly quickly.”

How to get a great tattoo

A great tattoo makes life better.

Whether you’re getting tattooed to

celebrate one of life’s milestones, to share

an experience with your best mate or to

simply wear a beautiful work of art that’s

yours forever, you want a tattoo you can

wear with pride.

You want a tattoo that makes you happy.

With such an important decision, you

need to trust your skin to the right artist.

But how do you know?

Start with the studio. You want

an environment that makes you feel

comfortable. Inside the bright orange

building on Greers Road, Jolly Octopus

Tattoos is a warm and comfortable place,

with lots of natural light and

warm wood. They’re a kind and

friendly bunch who are happy to

see you.

The best way to get a feel for

a studio environment is to drop

by and have a look. See what you

think. Another way is to check out

online reviews – see what other

people have to say about their

experiences.

Next, think about style. You want

your body art to look a certain

way: traditional style or realism,

Ta Moko, black and grey, Mandala,

watercolour, anime – the only limits are

your imagination.

The Jolly Octopus has eight great artists

to choose from. That way, no matter what

style of tattoo you’re after, they can make

sure you’ll work with an artist who will

knock it out of the park.

Finally, the last important step to getting

a great tattoo is trust.

You’ve found a studio that feels

welcoming and comfortable. You’ve got an

artist who does beautiful work in the style

you want. Now, and sometimes this can be

the hardest part, you’ve got to trust your

artist.

Communication is key. The artists at

The Jolly Octopus want you to get the best

tattoo of your life. Be honest and open

with them – you’re in good hands. To

make sure you get just what you’re after,

your artist will even sit down with you for

a free consult so you can plan your perfect

tattoo together.

A great tattoo is both a great piece of art

and a great memory. The Jolly Octopus

will give you both.

Tasty Bites

Moving veges to centre stage

No longer the side dishes, the back-up dancers or the understudies, vegetables

have earned their place front and centre on the plate as this pizza shows

Broccoli margherita pizzas

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 x quantity broccoli dough (see

following basic recipe)

⅔ cup (50g) finely grated

parmesan

300g cherry tomatoes, torn in

half and squeezed to remove the

seeds

¼ cup (4g) oregano leaves

Extra virgin olive oil, for

drizzling

2 x 125g fresh mozzarella balls,

torn

Basil leaves, to serve

Finely grated parmesan, plus

extra to serve (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 deg C.

Line 2cm x 30cm round oven

trays with non-stick baking

paper.

Divide the dough in half and

press on to each tray to make

2cm x 28cm round pizza bases.

Bake for 20min or until firm and

slightly golden.

Sprinkle the bases with

parmesan and top with the

tomatoes and oregano.

Drizzle with a little oil.

Return the pizzas to the oven

and bake for a further 20min or

until golden.

Top warm pizzas with the

mozzarella and sprinkle with

basil and extra parmesan to

serve.

Cook’s notes: You can add

your favourite toppings to this

pizza.

Just avoid anything that might

make the broccoli base turn soft

(such as tomato puree).

It’s best to stick to fresh

tomatoes with the seeds and

some of the juice squeezed out.

Try sprinkling over preroasted

pumpkin, eggplant

(aubergine) or zucchini

(courgette).

To have these pizza bases on

standby for busy days, bake

them for the first 20min, then

cool, wrap and freeze for later

use.

Broccoli dough

Ingredients

600g broccoli florets (about two

heads), roughly chopped (see

cooks notes)

¾ cup (90g) almond meal

(ground almonds)

½ cup (25g) finely grated

Parmesan

3 eggs

Sea salt and cracked black

pepper

Directions

In small batches, place

the broccoli in a food

processor and process until

finely chopped. Transfer to a

large bowl.

Add the almond meal,

parmesan, eggs, salt and pepper

to the broccoli and mix well to

combine.

Makes one quantity.

Cook’s notes: It’s best if you

don’t add too much of the

broccoli stem to this dough.

A floret with roughly 6-8cm of

stem is great.

Adding extra can make the

dough watery.

You can swap half, or all, of

the broccoli for cauliflower if

you prefer.

Again, just don’t use too much

of the stem.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Customers pleased with honest,

reliable vehicle servicing

Having your vehicle regularly serviced is

key to getting the best out of it in terms of

fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear

on expensive parts.

Kevin, who owns and operates Parker

Automotive in Birmingham Drive,

provides full vehicle servicing to keep your

vehicle running smoothly, as well as WOFs,

batteries and tyres.

He also carries out all mechanical repairs,

including cam belt replacement, suspension

work, clutch and gearbox repairs, only

repairing what’s necessary, and without

charging the earth.

He has owned the business since 2007,

and over that time has established a loyal

customer base – people that rely on him

to give them sound advice and provide

professional care and servicing for their

vehicles.

Customers come from across the city,

Spreydon, Hillmorton, Riccarton, Halswell

and Middleton areas, and the business has

received many positive Google reviews

from customers. Below are some examples:

I have been going to Parker Automotive

for the last eight years and I cannot fault the

service. The mechanical work has been top

notch! If you want top service and value for

money I recommend Parker Automotive. –

Daniel Jay

I’ve had all sorts of work done here from

basic servicing and warrants through to

major work like clutches, replacement

coilovers and bushings. Kevin is a very

honest guy who gets the job done in a very

timely manor and he has outstanding

communication. The overall service I’ve

received is excellent. – Lachlan Poole

I know it’s not always about price but

sometimes, when it comes to vehicle repairs,

you just want a perceived good deal and work

carried out by someone who seems to care.

Kevin came recommended by a friend, and

what a great recommendation. His work was

clean, efficient, fast and came in under what

I thought it was going to cost. So we took my

partner’s car there two days later and that

too was completed faster than we expected

and at an almost unbelievable cost.

Give Parker Automotive a shot next

time you need something done. Kevin

is a nice fella too, win win. – Mark

Lewis

Earlier this year, Parker Automotive

moved from premises on the Lincoln

and Torrens roads corner to a new site

at 23B Birmingham Drive, Middleton.

Opening hours are Monday to

Friday 7.30am-4pm, Saturday 8am-

12pm. So give Kevin a call on 982

4268, or pop in and he will be happy

to help with all your vehicle servicing

needs.

REAL ESTATE

Seascape delight

28B Ripon Street, Lyttelton

Enquiries over $645,000

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living room

open-plan kitchen/dining | 1 car garage

plus 1 carport - Listing no. 10099

Elegant and stylish. Built for maximum

sun with panoramic views over Lyttelton

Harbour and surrounding hills across to

Quail Island.

Stroll up the driveway, past single garage

and carport up a few steps across a deck

onto the first level. Here you find three

double bedrooms. The master with access

to decent size bathroom having the luxury

of shower, bath and double his-and-hers

sinks, plus a separate toilet. The laundry

is also located on this floor. Continue up

the central stairway onto the second level

landing. Turn left to the living, right to

kitchen or diagonal to access the rear of the

property.

The private landscaped courtyard provides

all day living, ideal for that morning cuppa

to evening BBQs. Take time to breath in the

fragrant Jasmine that adorns the trellis.

The light-filled open-plan kitchen/dining

area is the heart of the home. Here stunning

picture-perfect sea views from the fulllength

dining room window combine with

high ceilings making for that feeling of

spaciousness.

Flow continues through to the living area

where a balcony off this room provides

additional living or entertaining space.

Stairs continue through the centre of the

house to a cleverly designed mezzanine

floor. Again, be spoilt with superb views

from the dining room windows. Having its

own shower and toilet makes this a super

fourth double bedroom, but if you want

space, light, and a “special spot” in which

to work from home, then this is just the

space. This is one of those properties where

careful planning, quality and convenience

for modern day living will have you want

to live here.

Lyttelton has become a sought-after

dynamic Port community with much to

offer from the Saturday market, cafes,

restaurants, to great entertainment. A town

that can boast having a number of famous

artists. Come join this bubbling township.

“Buyers over $645,000” need to view.
