Rocks

smash

house

windows

• By Claire Booker

ROCKS ARE being thrown

through house windows,

terrifying those inside.

The incidents have happened

on Sunday nights on Highsted,

Veitches and Cavendish Rds in

Bishopdale and Casebrook.

Highsted Rd resident Christina

Davey was watching TV when

a rock was thrown through her

window about 10pm.

“I was sitting on the couch

watching TV and it happened

right behind me,” she said.

Miss Davey called 111, and

was told by police it was wilful

property damage. They did not

investigate it further.

“I don’t sit in front of that window

anymore, I’m just so pleased

my son was in bed asleep,” she

said.

Christchurch North Community

Patrol chairman Sam Hall

said the patrol had noticed an

increase in thefts and burglaries

in Bishopdale.

“It has been pretty bad lately,

but give it a month and they’ll

be somewhere else,” he said of

problems across the north-west

suburbs.

Harvey takes reins at SARA

• By Claire Booker

A NEW chairman has been

appointed to the St Albans

Residents Association – and for

the first time in nearly 10 years

the role will be held by a man.

Jason Harvey has stepped up

to fill the role previously held by

Emma Twaddell,

who has since

been employed

as a community

activator.

But Mr

Harvey, who

started last

Jason

Harvey

week, has no

concerns about

taking on the

role as a male.

“I think what matters is a

passion for developing a great

community,” he said.

Mr Harvey has been closely

involved with the mitigation

of the Downstream Effects

Management Plan, which is

set to bring more than 48,000

vehicles through the suburb.

Before moving to St Albans in

2011, Mr Harvey was a volunteer

firefighter for about four years.

He is also involved with youth

groups and youth camps, and

was an under-10 to under-13

coach at the Shirley Rugby Club

for a few years.

NEW BEGINNINGS: Former St Albans Residents Association

chairwoman Emma Twaddell has taken up a community

activator role.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Mr Harvey, alongside Mark

Wilson, helped organise a

petition to try and stop the

Christchurch Northern Corridor

motorway traffic from being

funnelled through St Albans.

He said it is an honour to land

the role.

“SARA has done an amazing

job in advocating for our

community. I’m looking forward

to continuing that work with

everyone,” he said.

Mr Harvey’s priorities in his

new role are to continue with

the work the association already

has under way.

“The next year is a big

‘I think what matters is a

passion for developing a

great community’

– Jason Harvey

one with the opening of

the Christchurch Northern

Corridor and all the associated

works related to that, and the

building of the new community

centre,” he said.

Ms Twaddell gave up full-time

employment 13 years ago to be

a full-time mother, and she is

excited to move back into her

role as a community activator.

“Being well over dishes and

washing, I’m excited to be

employed again in a field that I

think is very rewarding. The role

is about using SARAs resources

to enable residents and local

groups to develop local groups,

activities and events,” she said.

Ms Twaddell said she doesn’t

know Mr Harvey very well, but

believes he has a quiet calmness

about him.

“He is diligent and in a good

team, I think he will be a good

leader, especially with a strong

committee behind him,” she

said.

Peter Jaspers and Conrad

Fitzgerald have also joined the

association’s committee.

In Brief

BIRD-SCARING GUNS

Two bird-scaring gas guns

will be placed along the

Christchurch Northern

Corridor this month to ward

of birds. The gas guns will

be placed as far away from

residential properties as

possible, but the noise may be

heard from a distance. The guns

will be used until the plants are

established. It is likely they will

be taken away in December.

CRANFORD ST WORK

Work was due to start on

Monday to upgrade Cranford

St to four lanes, with a central

median and cycle lanes on

both sides of the road. The

intersection of Cranford St

and Innes Rd will also be

widened, and turning lanes

will be improved. All traffic

on Cranford St will be moved

to the east side of the road and

there will be 30km/h speed

limit. The work will take two

and three weeks.

REDWOOD LIBRARY OPEN

After a two-month closure for

repairs and refurbishment, the

Redwood Library has reopened.

It was due to open on August

26, but damage to the concrete

slab around the structural

steel columns was found and

repaired.

Big upgrade for Graham Condon

Belfast

pensioners

hit the road

• By Claire Booker

SHOPPING IN Christchurch

is getting busier – so a group of

elderly Belfast residents decided to

get theirs done in Ashburton.

The Belfast Active Senior

Support group spent a day in the

town, op-shopping and visiting

Trott’s Garden.

Belfast Community Network’s

Debbie Booker, who supports the

group, said the day out was a great

success.

“Our seniors miss going to

‘town’ since the earthquakes, it is

important for them to have easy

access and parking so that they

don’t need to walk too far. They

also thoroughly enjoy going somewhere

different that they haven’t

been to for a long time,” she said.

The group was started to offer

services and programmes for

older members of the community,

especially those who may be

lonely or isolated.

CLOSURE: Graham Condon Recreation and Sports

Centre will be closed from mid-January for a series of

refurbishments.

THE GRAHAM Condon

Recreation and Sport Centre will

undergo a refresh over summer.

It will be the most significant

maintenance and refurbishment

work to be carried out on the

facility since it opened eight years

ago. However, it will be closed

temporarily from mid-January.

The refresh will start in mid-

January and include

work to improve the

efficiency of the facility,

such as changing to LED

lighting.

Other work will include

painting, replacement of

showers and toilets and

pool-side work.

The main hall and gym

will be completed first

and re-open in early February,

while the remainder of the centre

– including the pools – will reopen

in early April.

City council head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox says

the facility has had a lot of use

since opening, especially as other

recreation and sports centres

were closed or damaged after the

earthquakes.

“Since Graham Condon opened

in October 2011, a huge number

of people have made use of the

facility. It’s definitely time for it

to have deferred maintenance

Nigel Cox

completed to ensure it is modern,

efficient and well maintained for

continued community use.

“We thank the public for their

patience as we carry out this

much-needed work and hope

they look forward to seeing and

experiencing the benefits it will

bring,” he said.

Over the past two years

refurbishments have also

been carried out at Pioneer

and Jellie Park recreation

and sports centres.

Mr Cox said as other

new facilities like He

Puna Taimoana in New

Brighton, the Metro Sports

facility, Te Pou Toetoe

in Linwood, and the

planned library, customer

services and recreation and

sport centre in Hornby are built,

they will be added into the city

council’s scheduled maintenance

programme.

“It’s important to regularly

maintain these popular assets for

the community,” he said.

During the closure period the

community is encouraged to use

Jellie Park and Tairoa QEII or the

city council’s outside pools, which

will be open over the summer.

People with specific

memberships at Graham Condon

will be able to use other centres.

Pub quizzes help pay for

pool resource consent

• By Claire Booker

PUB QUIZZES seem to be highly

popular in St Albans, with funds

from the event helping to pay for

the $43,000 resource consent for

the proposed Edgeware Pool.

The monthly quizzes held

at Bailies Bar have helped pay

off the last of the cost for the

resource consent and subdivision

fees for the project.

More than 50 loyal trivia enthusiasts

have regularly attended

the events to support the community

pool.

The pool has been a contentious

issue in the area since its

closure and demolition in 2006

by the city council.

In 2016, the city council sold

the land for the Edgeware Pool to

the St Albans Pavilion and Pool

Group for $1.

The city council stated at the

time it would not contribute to

the project, but later said it would

commit $1.25 million if the group

could raise the rest of the $5 million

costs.

The St Albans Pavilion and

Pool group are now awaiting

the results of a feasibility study,

which are expected next month.

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

ARTIST’S IMPRESSION: The designs for Edgeware Pool will

be assessed in a feasibility study, and results are expected in

November.

The study will assess the practicality

of the new Edgeware Pool

designs and whether it will be an

asset to the community.

After the study, the group can

apply for money from major

charitable funding groups to

build the pool.

St Albans Pavilion and Pool

spokeswoman Valerie Somerville

said once the study is complete,

Student wins

awards for

inspiring others

• By Jess Gibson

ELEANOR HURTON has

found strength in living with a

disability.

And now, she is empowering

other young people to do the

same.

The 25-year-old masters student

from Northwood, who has

a hearing disorder, received two

major trophies at the Canterbury

University Blues Awards.

She won the outstanding

contribution to equity and

diversity award and was a joint

winner of the most prestigious

community award the outstanding

achievement in community

engagement.

Miss Hurton received four

nominations for the community

awards – the most ever received

in the community section since

the category was added to the

awards three years ago.

“I feel very humbled. As a

young person with a disability,

when I won multiple Blues

Awards I didn’t win them for

myself, I won then for everyone

in the disabled community who

strives to make Aotearoa a more

equitable and accessible country

for people with disabilities,” she

said.

Miss Hurton was diagnosed

with auditory processing disorder,

which affects how the brain

processes speech, in 2017.

Following an initial bout of

thinking APD was the worst

part about her, she came to

terms with her diagnosis and

decided she would support others

who may feel like they had to

hide their truth.

Since then, Miss Hurton has

gone on to set up ReDefine:

Youth Development Programme,

which aims to redefine

what it means to be a young

person with a disability and

empowers them to take on a

positive identity.

She is the first person with a

disability to ever be on the committee

for the Christchurch City/

Banks Peninsula community organisation

grants scheme, which

has allocated over $700,000 of

funds to the disability sector.

LOOK OUT: Sam Hall and

the Christchurch North

Community Patrol are

encouraging residents to

stay vigilant when it comes to

safety. ​

We have an amazing group

of volunteers who are all well

trained and police vetted.

Our patrollers are a mixture of

young and old, men and woman.

Some are retired, a number are

police recruits, and others are

just people wanting to help out in

their community. If you would

like to join us, then you would be

most welcome.

We have a Facebook page,

which has provided a great way

for people to get in touch with us

and find out what we do.

As well as the hotspot and

burglary maps that the police

give us, we have been able to add

more areas of concern to our

patrol routes.

We adjust our times and routes

with this information, and

With

34 on

site car

parks!

Baking fresh each day since 1986

we have added later shifts and

concentrated patrols in these

streets.

With an increase in activity in

our area, we suggest you remove

valuables from your cars when

you lock up. Invest in car alarms,

and keep vigilant with regards to

unwanted people on your streets.

Our motto when patrolling is

if something doesn’t look right –

then it probably isn’t. If you see

something or someone, and they

are still in the area, then phoning

111 is your best option. This will

get the police there fast.

You could also take down

number plates, descriptions, and

a direction of travel if you can.

If they are long-gone, or there is

something that doesn’t require a

police presence right away, then

you can call the 105 number to

report it. Keep safe, and look

after your neighbours.

Kids get ready to fish

ANGLER: Brooke Meldrum, of Burwood, was proud of her catch

at last year’s Take a Kid Fishing event.

• By Claire Booker

ABOUT 800 salmon and

rainbow trout will be released

before the Take a Kid Fishing day

at The Groynes lakes on Sunday.

The event was first held in 1988

and is the largest of its type in

New Zealand.

Isaac

Conservation

and Wildlife

Trust chairman

Dave Denton

is helping to

organise the day.

He said a key

objective is “to

give children

a sense of confidence and

Dave

Denton

self-worth by involving them

and their families in a healthy

outdoor pursuit.

“Many children have no

opportunity to enjoy such an

outdoor experience and they just

don’t know how to get involved.

This event offers a lot more than

fishing. Encouraging children

to fish is a great way to develop

closer family relationships and

outdoor involvement. And while

fishing is the tool, the benefits are

much wider,” he said.

The event will run from 9am

to 1pm. Rods, tackle and bait

will be available on loan, but

identification must be brought by

the parent or caregiver.

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.

NOR’WEST NEWS

Negotiation may be a key requirement

for a successful real estate career, but it’s

surprising how often fluency in this core

skill is absent.

This is an assessment I’ve made through recent

personal observations of consultants from a

myriad of different companies, in addition to

‘coalface’ participation, and as a result I’m now

prioritizing the teaching of negotiation methods.

It is, after all, a skill that benefits from practice,

and all skills are improved through training and

diligence.

It’s not necessarily easy and, for some consultants,

it’s just too confronting to move people from their

expectations. In previous markets, especially in the

days when house purchases flowed off the back of

large insurance payouts, very little negotiation may

have actually been required, especially regarding

price. But not now. In the current market, not

negotiating effectively prevents everyone from

meeting at the point of compromise and can

prevent a result. Little wonder it is so important to

get a skilled negotiator.

History has taught me that every owner (myself

included) wants the best/highest price and this

may or may not be a realistic price. Accompanying

this is the fact that every buyer wants to pay the

fairest/lowest price, not necessarily the asking

price. There you have it: the dichotomy of any

sales process.

With property, all the odds are particularly large, so

the stakes are high – as are the emotions.

The solution lies with effective negotiation and

here are some of the practices and philosophies

supporting that process.

To be an exceptional negotiator requires strong

communication skills, both through listening and

through clearly and empathetically discussing both

sides of a situation, emphasis on both! There are

three documented phases to negotiation:

1. Preparation Which looks at the intention of each

party, for example, as set out in a contract.

In real estate that’s seen in the presentation of an

offer where negotiations can be required to move

the two parties to a point of acceptance.

2. Development This could be where specific

clauses are determined, the all-important price is

considered, and specific points of view or conflict

are argued and defended. Some consultants excel

at this.

3. Closing Just as it states, all parties have matters

done (or not), they understand what has transpired

and then everything is recorded in writing.

Now this whole process might take minutes, hours,

a day. I’ve seen negotiations go on for a week and

the clinical description I’ve detailed overlooks the

massive emotional weight that comes to bear. It can

involve tears, conflict and disappointments, but it

can also be an incredibly satisfying and happy event.

It’s therefore critical to know your agent has the skill

to navigate the often choppy waters of negotiation.

I'll be doing my utmost to ensure they do.

Growing fruit in the 19th century

Papanui Heritage Group

chairman Murray Williams

– with research from

Christine Grant – writes

about the orchardist

Frederick William Cone

PAPANUI WAS first settled

because of the attraction of

the Papanui Bush, which

provided timber for the nearby

Christchurch market.

However, the native forest

was quickly cut out, although it

was soon discovered that once

drained, the land would support

farming and horticulture.

From the 1860s, Papanui

became a centre for orcharding

and eventually the necessary

infrastructure was developed.

For example, the arrival of the

railway link with Christchurch

in 1872 was a major advantage,

as was the later development of

cool stores, which helped in the

more orderly marketing of the

area’s apple crop.

Many tried their luck as

orchardists.

One such individual was

Frederick William Cone. Born

in 1866 at Ashley Downs, he

did not enter this industry until

his mid-40s, having trained

as a saddler and worked in

this business in several towns,

ranging from Rangiora and

Kaiapoi and later in New

Plymouth and Inglewood.

He married Helen (Nellie)

Wilson in 1888 and the

couple had a family of 12,

eight of whom survived

childhood.

In 1910 he purchased five acres

at Langdons Rd in Papanui and

established himself as a producer

of apples, pears and plums.

His eight daughters all worked

in the orchard, which came to be

known popularly as the ‘Garden

of Eden’.

Apples graded as exportworthy

were sent to the United

States for a return of £1 per case.

The property featured a large

two-storey house with two

internal staircases, although

when the reticulation of

electricity became available, only

the ground floor was connected

as the cost of installation

precluded this luxury upstairs.

An artesian well provided good

quality water for the home and

orchard.

Cone’s land was to play an

important part in the future of

Papanui.

In 1945 it was sold and became

part of the site on which The

Firestone Corporation built its

tyre factory that became a large

ESTATE:

The Cone

homestead,

where

Papanui

orchardist

Frederick

Cone and his

family lived.

Papanui employer. The land

formerly owned by Cone was

eventually donated to the city of

Christchurch by Bridgestone, the

company which had purchased

the Firestone plant until it too

withdrew from Papanui.

It is this land beside the

railway that is now the subject

of a project to replant the area

with native trees and will

hopefully bring back the native

birds which once thrived in the

original bush. The venture is

being led by Papanui Rotary and

the city council, as well as other

local organisations including the

Papanui Heritage Group.

New life for

artist’s

old home

WORK IS underway to adapt

the former home in Richmond

of acclaimed Christchurch artist

Bill Sutton into a house museum

and community centre.

The Templar St home, in the

red zone, will be gifted to the city

council by the Crown after the

restoration project is complete to

allow Sutton’s legacy to live on.

Land Information New

Zealand chief executive Gaye

Searancke says the restoration

of the significant site, protected

by a covenant, marks the start of

wider regeneration plans for the

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor.

“It’s an honour for LINZ to be

involved in this project which,

once complete, will bring new

life to this special home,” said Ms

Searancke.

“As kaitiaki of this land, we

are always looking for new ways

to support the use of the residential

red zone, and this is just

another way we can help make

that happen.” The trust plans

to use the facility to run tours

about the life and work of Sutton

and run a range of community

programmes and public meetings.

The restoration is expected

to be completed and the facility

opened to the public in March.

More piping

success for

Campbell

• By Claire Booker

CAMPBELL WILSON may

only be 16, but his list of

bag-piping success is almost

never-ending.

Last week, the St Andrew’s

College pupil won the New

Zealand Young Piper of the Year

award for the second year in a

row.

“It feels pretty surreal, all I

wanted to do in nelson was to

play good tunes, and that was

what I did,” Campbell said.

At the competition in Nelson,

Campbell won all three under-21

events, the piobaireachd,

march, strathspey and reel, and

the hornpipe jig.

“It’s certainly one of the most

prestigious awards I’ve won in

New Zealand, for sure,” he said.

In August, Campbell won

the under-18 piobaireachd and

under-18 march, strathspey

and reel events at the Northern

Meeting in Inverness, Scotland.

In the piping world, the annual

Northern Meeting is the

most prestigious competition for

solo pipers around the world.

He made history at the Hastings

Highland Games in April

when he became the youngest

ever winner of the New Zealand

Gold Medal for Piobaireachd.

Campbell said he practices

about five or six hours each

week and usually has a lesson on

the weekend with his father.

He said the hours he practices

when competitions are not in

the near future seem extensive,

but when competitions are

on the horizon, he feels well

prepared.

Campbell’s father Greg

Wilson is classified as one of the

top pipers in the world – and

doubles as his tutor.

“He [Greg] has been the

backbone of my piping successes.

Without him I wouldn’t

do nearly as well as I am now,”

Campbell said.

Campbell is now looking

forward to when he competes

against his father at the upcoming

Labour weekend competitions.

“The next steps for me would

be having success in the annual

Labour Weekend competitions

coming up in a couple of weeks.

As my dad always says, you’re

only as good as your next tune,”

he said.

Daniel hits the books after

bringing home third NZ title

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

BURWOOD’S 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.

“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,” he

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,”

Fuller said.

Daylight savings gives us a

great opportunity to make the

most of our vibrant Canterbury

region. I took the children to

Hagley Park on the weekend to

ride their bikes and the spring

blossoms on the trees framing

the walkways looked right out

of a tourism brochure. Walking

around the botanical gardens to

show the kids the daffodils made

me realise how lucky we are to

have our garden city with its easy

access to the mountains and

the sea on our doorstep. The

opening of the Riverside Market

this month showcased a great

new asset for Christchurch and

is yet another way to exhibit our

region to visitors.

My Northern Christchurch

over 60s coffee mornings have

started this month in Belfast. It’s

especially important to me, as

local MP, that I listen to our over

60s because I believe you’ve

worked hard in your life and

deserve a secure retirement. Our

region is enjoying strong growth

but we need to ensure services

are available as our region grows

and that we have a strong focus

on creating an age-friendly

community.

I’m always inviting local

organisations and groups to

catch up with me and last week

I enjoyed being shown around

the Papanui Club by its general

manager, who explained how

they reach out to our North West

community, and the elderly in

particular, to provide socialisation

and friendship.

Please take care to protect

yourselves from measles as we

wait on more vaccines to be

available. National is pushing to

make the vaccine available to

our early childhood education

teachers to protect children with

compromised immune systems.

We need to keep them safe.

Journeys of the Heart

19 October – 19 November 2019

19 October - 19 November 2019

Two years since Clare’s last Little River gallery show,

and much has changed in her life; she has moved south

to Blueskin Bay and fashioned a new existence after the

death of her life partner and fellow artist, Max Podstolski.

Last September Clare travelled to Spain to walk part of

the Camino, raising money for Leukaemia and Blood

Cancer New Zealand, as a way of giving something to

help others coping with a terminally ill loved one and a

way of self-healing.

It was an Main outward Rd, and Little inward River journey | 03 325 for Clare. 1944This time

and distance away

art@littlerivergallery.com

allowed her to explore whether she

could find a sense of joy again in her work and her life,

and she was able to choose to keep on painting. The

resilience of the human spirit to endure parting and grief,

for Clare, came from the power and beauty of the natural

environment around her.

These works explore Clare’s journey back into painting

and finding a sense of renewal and a path forward that is

not merely surviving but thriving.

The Last Plum Gone Sing Me the Path Forward

“Uplift my singing heart,

as once it was torn asunder.

The wound, now papered over, is not forgotten,

but pulsing with a tenderness for a further chance of life.

With every beat it grows a little stronger, a little lighter.

The cycle of returning to old places, empty now without you,

gives me a knowing that each movement forward,

when facing the storm of solitude,

is a healing.

The call of the light reveals an illuminating path.

Not merely to survive but truly thrive.

Now dance me into a fresh dawn

of hope and possibilities on

these Journeys of the Heart.

I’m over the moon to be alive.”

Tasty Bites

NOR’WEST NEWS

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.

Is your

wardrobe

summer

ready yet?

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

NOR’WEST NEWS

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.

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

moving house – you’re joining a vibrant and welcoming community

where you’ll feel completely at home.

At Summerset we put you at the heart of everything

we do, so you can enjoy the freedom of living the life

you choose.

The perfect home is waiting for you. From villas and townhouses, to

apartments – you’ll find a place to make your own. Our homes are

accessible, high-quality, and there are no worries about maintenance or

upkeep as we do it all for you. Pets are also welcome, and you can even

go away on holiday knowing your home will be safe and secure. We’ll

also make sure you’re aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that

there won’t be any unexpected surprises.

When it comes to activities and events, there’s always something

happening to keep our Summerset community involved and

entertained, and you can choose to do as much or as little as you like.

If you need some extra care or support, our continuum of care means

we’ll be there for you as your needs change, giving you the peace of

mind to continue living life to its fullest.

Over 5,000 residents are already enjoying the Summerset life across

yourself or a family member, come and visit one of our Christchurch

villages to find out more.
