plan to

heats up

• By Claire Booker

THE LAST thing some Fendalton

residents want on their doorstep is

a liquor store within 1km of four

primary schools.

Manpreet Kaur and her

husband have applied for an

off-license to sell liquor at 5

Memorial Ave, next to Fendalton

Takeaways.

There was standing room only

at Fendalton Open-air School

last week, where more than 50

members of the community

attended a meeting to discuss

their concerns over the proposed

liquor store.

Isobel Anderson lives next to

the site and is leading the charge

to stop the liquor store licence

being granted.

“We don’t want a liquor store in

our area. There is too much harm

of alcohol, I just don’t think it’s

suitable,” she said.

About 50 written objections

have already been submitted to

the city council, and residents

have until tomorrow to send their

views.

Merivale restaurant takes top award

• By Claire Booker

MERIVALE’S NO.4 Bar and

Restaurant took the top honour

at the Hospitality New Zealand

Awards for Excellence last week.

The restaurant now holds the

title of ‘best neighbourhood bar

and eatery.’

Owner Shaun Halliwell said

it wasn’t the first award the

business has won, but it was one

of the most significant.

“Since we opened No.4 in

2006, real hospitality has been

at the centre of everything we

do. We look after our team, and

they, in turn, stick around, often

for many years and look after

our customers. Some of them

even recall individual loyalty

card numbers,” he said.

Mr Halliwell said the award

is great recognition of all the

hard work his staff put into their

work.

“They do a great job, they work

incredibly hard,” he said.

He thought the reason behind

the businesses success is that

its spaces cater to a range of

occasions.

“We can have a rowdy party

going on in the bar, live music

outside, and a formal dinner

in the library, and everybody’s

happy,” Mr Halliwell said.

He submitted an application

The revolution

is here now!

to Hospitality New Zealand to

be entered in the running for the

award and was pleased with the

result.

Head chef Ian Mulling – who

has been with the No.4 team

since it ran the Clarendon

Restaurant on Oxford Tce

which was destroyed in the

earthquakes – accepted the

award on behalf of the team at a

ceremony in Hawke’s Bay.

LINED UP: Former

CBHS students at

the annual old boys

luncheon. PHOTO:

GEOFF SLOAN

Old boys celebrate at CBHS

•From page 1

The fundraiser is held each year

for ex-students who started at

the school 60 years ago or more,

and old boys committee

treasurer Trevor Hayes

said the event was a

“huge success.”

It raised $3600 to

support students’ mental

health, and $1250 for the

school’s PTA.

Mr Hayes said Mr

Gray was one of the first

to accept the invitation

when they were sent out

last month.

“[Mr Gray] sat at the top

table with other 90-year-olds,

headmaster Nic Hill, guest

speaker Anton Matthews, head

Trevor

Hayes

monitor Fergus Kilpatrick, and

MC Terry Donaldson,” Mr Hayes

said.

The committee set an initial

limit of 150 attendees.

Within a week this was

extended to 170 when

invites closed and a waiting

list was established.

Guest speaker Mr

Matthews owns the

Fush fish and chip shop

in Wigram, and is well

known for his passionate

talks about te reo Maori. He

is also a former student and

teacher of CBHS.

“His [Mr Matthews] talk was

about te reo and the benefits to

New Zealanders to learn as much

as we can of the Maori language

for the future benefit of our

children and grandchildren,” Mr

Hayes said.

Before the luncheon began,

the past pupils were invited to

walk around the corridors and

main block of the school and

reminisce about their time at

CBHS.

They were also given a tour of

the school grounds, including the

reconstructed Deans buildings,

the work being done to restore

the former Caddick and Caldwell

blocks, the Big Room and the

classroom block along Te Kura St.

“We are not sure whether [Mr

Gray] will return next year but

welcome other old boys to reunite

with their old school,” Mr Hayes

said.

Kitten cuteness at SPCA

NOR’WEST NEWS

KITTEN SEASON has begun at

the SPCA’s Christchurch centre.

The centre has 68 kittens in

its care, either at the centre in

intensive care or with foster

families.

This number will continue to

rise in the coming weeks.

The summer months are

often nicknamed kitten season

because of the high number

of kittens that are born at this

time.

However, an SPCA spokeswoman

said it typically finds

that kitten season starts as early

as September and the Christchurch

centre is already gearing

up for one busy summer.

She said some of the most recent

kittens in the Christchurch

centre’s care came from the

SPCA’s Ashburton branch and

two had their lives saved when

they were rescued.

“A member of the public

called our team and staff went

out to help after the lady heard

cries coming from under the spa

pool in her garden.

“The gap between the ground

at the spa pool was so small

that staff had to get a spade to

dig a hole to get to the kittens.

They were both tiny, and one

was cold and appeared lifeless.

Fortunately, they were rushed

to the centre for intensive care

and both are now doing well,”

she said.

FURRY FRIENDS: The SPCA’s Christchurch centre has 68

kittens in its care and this number is expected to increase. ​

Harewood designer lights

up the timeball in Lyttelton

• By Jess Gibson

IT WAS AN emotional

experience for Harewood’s Kevin

Cawley when he saw the lights

go on at the Timeball Station in

Lyttelton for the first time.

After 5pm every night, a

“shaft of light” accentuates the

difference between the two types

of stone on the 143-year-old

structure, which is one of five

working timeballs in the world.

It was Mr Cawley who took on

the lighting project

after being asked

by Heritage New

Zealand director

for the southern

region Sheila

Watson.

His aim was to

Kevin

Cawley

make an “iconic

structure become

a beacon of pride

to the community and to respect

the architectural integrity of the

tower and enhance the beauty of

the structure by night.”

Now the lighting designer has

been recognised for his work with

two awards of excellence.

At the Illumination

Engineering Society Chapter

Lighting Awards, Mr Cawley

received one award from IES and

one from the Royal Astronomical

Society of NZ for efficiently,

effectively, sustainably protecting

INSPIRATIONAL: Harewood

designer Kevin Cawley

created the lighting for

Lyttelton’s Timeball Station.

the night environment.

“I was stoked. I felt extremely

proud,” he said.

Built in 1876 to a design by

architect Thomas Cane, the

timeball signalled the correct

time for ships in Lyttelton

Harbour until 1934.

The reconstruction of the

station after it was destroyed

in the 2011 earthquake was

completed in October last year.

Mr Cawley has lit up some

of Christchurch’s most iconic

buildings, including the

Isaac Theatre Royal and the

Christchuch Casino.

Residents fight bottle store plan

•From page 1

The key concerns for residents

are a lack of parking, an increase

in alcohol consumption and

alcohol-related anti-social

behaviour, and frustration

around Memorial Ave being a

memorial for fallen soldiers.

The proposed liquor store

would operate from 9am-10pm,

seven days a week.

Community Action on

Youth and Drugs senior project

worker Paul McMahon said it

is important people make their

voices heard, and attend the

district licensing committee

hearing when a date is set.

“The more people who make

their objections known, and

the more people who go to the

hearing, the less likely it will be

granted,” he said.

Mr and Mrs Kaur, who have

applied for the consent, said they

are open to addressing residents

concerns with parking, and

Mrs Kaur does not believe the

store will cause any issues in the

neighbourhood.

“Liquor is available at the

supermarket in the area, I don’t

think it will cause any more

issues,” Mrs Kaur said.

The couple is open to installing

security cameras and extra lights

to promote safety in the area.

Mr Kaur said the location was

chosen due to the busy nature of

the road.

OPPOSITION: Community Action on Youth and Drugs senior

project worker Paul McMahon does not want to see a new

liquor store open on Memorial Ave. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“Every retailer looks for

busy roads with parking for

businesses that is a good

location,”

“We are not drug dealers – it’s

just a liquor store,” he said.

Fendalton resident Ashley

Seaford has two teenagers living

at his address.

He is concerned the liquor

store could increase the risk of

alcohol-related harm, especially

with its proximity to Canterbury

University.

“Opening a shop that

focuses on the youth market by

selling spirits and high alcohol

RTDs is not wise and likely to

lead to increases in alcoholrelated

harm and problems,” he

said.

A Canterbury University

spokesman said the university

does not currently have a

position on the matter.

proposed liquor store can be sent

Big award for Papanui

retirement village team

THE GARDENING team

from Ngaio Marsh Retirement

Village in Papanui have been

praised for their hard work in

the Christchurch Beautifying

Association spring competition.

The four men in the team won

the Merivale Retirement Village

Trophy for ‘continuing standards’

in their work.

Chris Downes is the head

gardener and has been at the

village for four-and-a-half years.

He said there were a number

of factors which helped the team

win the award.

“The secret is to have good

water flow and so forth. I think

it was the colour of the pansies,

the yellow and blue, particularly

down Grants Rd,” he said.

The team values the

environmentally. Green waste is

sent to the city council’s Living

Earth depots, and compost

comes back to the village for use

in the beds.

Said village manager Anna

Thomson: “Every day, I get

compliments from residents

and visitors about our beautiful

gardens,” she said.

Gardening ‘therapy’ pays off

• By Claire Booker

CAROL SKINNER has always

been a passionate gardener, but

when she was recovering from

cancer treatment it became a

sort of therapy.

Her hard work in the garden

has now won her two awards at

the Christchurch Beautifying

Association spring competition.

While she was recovering

from melanoma of the eye, she

found peace in the garden.

“I would come home from

work angry and just start digging,

it helped me to heal,” she

said.

Mrs Skinner said her husband

Ray is a great help in the garden,

but she gives him the directions.

“It’s my way or the highway,

he just does what he’s told,” she

laughed.

The couple won first place in

the secret garden section of the

awards and third equal in the

Andrews Trophy.

Mrs Skinner said it was incredibly

rewarding to have her

garden recognised, given it is

“ever so slightly alternative” with

the succulents, native plants,

mosaics and pottery ornaments.

The couple have lived in

Northwood for a decade, and

Mrs Skinner said a lot of the

plants in their prize-winning

garden were brought with them

when they moved from the

North Island.

She describes the garden as

architectural, with succulent

plants and bulbs.

Most of the plants are perennials,

and she has a lot of dahlias

and hellebores, as well as native

plants.

“I really like natives, and birds

just go crazy for their seeds,”

Mrs Skinner said.

She spends “virtually every

day” in the garden, doing odd

jobs and gathering up debris.

“I’m out there for about 12

hours a week,” she said.

Mrs Skinner isn’t a fan of

garden gnomes, but she has a lot

of her own pottery pieces.

She said her secret garden

is a favourite spot of her

granddaughter’s who goes there

to play with their dog Ruby.

More than 60 entries

in Art Couture festival

DESIGNERS FROM across the

city took out prizes at the recent

wearable art festival Art Couture.

More than 60 participants from

across the South Island gathered

at Lincoln to compete in the

festival.

It was the third annual show

and the first time it included a

body art category.

Organiser Kim Strange said

the body art category was a great

addition to the show.

“The designers painted for

about eight hours at the event

centre on the day of the show. The

body art was well received and we

look forward to having this in the

show in 2020,” she said.

Runner-up award for young

golf ball dress designer

AN upcoming fashionista

had a ball at a wearable art

competition.

Year 9 Villa Maria College

student Lucy Morrison

was awarded runner-up

in the 13-20 age category

in the NZ Art Couture

competition recently after

making an outfit from golf

balls.

The whole outfit took

Lucy eight-and-a-half

months to complete and

she finished it a day before

the competition.

“I realised I would have

to cut the golf balls in half

or else the dress would be

too heavy so I used a saw

and cut them in half,” she

said.

Lucy then realised she

could use the inside of the

balls which are all different

colours on her skirt and

top.

She then added finishing

touches to her skirt

including grass and a flag,

placing a golf ball in her

hair along with making the

shoes.

Lucy said the idea grew

from going to mini-golf

with her friends.

Development manager

Keri Crompton said Lucy

is only 13-years-old and it

Dentures not fitting properly?

Ill-fitting dentures can affect your teeth &

mouth, make eating difficult, & just plain hurt!

Using Duchenne’s exclusive DigiCare system,

we can reline your dentures for optimal fit

and comfort, and you’ll be surprised how

quick and convenient the entire process is.

• Locally

produced

• Finest quality

products

Strength

Thanks to the technology’s

unique bridging system, there

is significantly less chance of

dentures breaking or fracturing.

Comfort

Even the best technology

is no use if dentures aren’t

comfortable, and again digital

dentures show their superiority

here, as they are crafted from

a much denser acrylic so

are thinner and lighter.

However, Duchenne still

believe it is the human touch

that matters most. “The most

satisfying thing is the personal

contact, and relationships

we build with our clients,”

explains Duchenne’s owner,

John Batchelor.

Caring for a Ugandan community

In this week’s soapbox,

Bishopdale Unichem

pharmacists Amanda

Nuttall and Maria Morley-

Bunker share the highlights

of their volunteer trip to

Uganda, as reported in

the August 27 issue of the

Nor’West News

It is difficult to describe the

range of emotions as we reflect

on what has been an incredible

journey.

We feel privileged and

humbled to have been connected

with such beautiful people in

such a beautiful place.

Our team of 22 people was

divided into three smaller teams

with set activities.

The construction team had the

task of helping to progress the

building of the new rehab centre

and clinic. The teaching team

supported the local teachers

in the Kyampisi Childcare

Ministries School.

The care team, which we were

part of, had the role of working

with the children, carers and

social workers at St Pauls Rehab

Centre. This included teaching

a first-aid course to the staff

at the rehab centre and taking

all of the kids swimming one

afternoon.

UGANDA: Maria Morely-Bunker and Amanda Nuttall met Mercy,

the child the Bishopdale Pharmacy sponsors during their recent

volunteer trip to Kyampisi, Uganda. ​

The swimming was definitely

one of our highlights –

organised chaos but such fun.

Another key highlight was

the medical camp day. We were

two of three Kiwi pharmacists

all from Canterbury, with four

nurses from Uganda.

We provided just over 1000

prescriptions for people,

working from a tent, and in very

different conditions to those we

are used to.

We were well supported

by some of the boys from the

construction crew later in the

day who provided much-needed

cups of tea.

This was also the day people

received the glasses donated

by the Bishopdale community

– over 120 pairs of glasses plus

30 pairs of sunglasses. The

local people working on the

construction site received the

sunglasses, which were much

needed for both the sun and eye

safety.

All the glasses were cleaned

and had their prescription

measured and labelled thanks

to Marcia and the team at Foate

Optometry, Bishopdale.

We both look forward to

retaining our connection

with KCM and the Kyampisi

community. The team at the

pharmacy sponsor a child,

Mercy, which enables her to

attend school.

We were able to meet and

spend time with her while we

were there. We hope to return

again in the next two years.

the journey, or to donate

directly to KCM visit

Steve Sims responds to

the October 15 Nor’West

News article on rocks being

thrown through windows in

Bishopdale

Having followed the Bishopdale

Community Group page on

Facebook and being a neighbourly

lead in Casebrook, I have noticed

a lot more comments posted

almost everyday involving a

crime of some sort. People along

driveways, cars being tampered

with, vehicle break-ins and thefts.

More recently rocks were

thrown through windows – one

person being a victim more than

once. I think even earlier this

year, there were shots fired at a

house on Tuckers Rd.

I feel this has been increasing

from late last year rather than

a more recent increase. I was

personally disappointed to read

that we should give it a month and

they will move on.

I felt this was poor attitude to

what was happening. It already

seems to have been going on

longer than a month and I think

residents are getting sick and

worried about it.

I have heard there is a unit

that patrols but has a vast area

to cover and it is fully donation

and volunteer run which is great,

but can’t be everywhere at once, I

understand that.

Maybe set up a neighbourhood

watch-type thing again or a new

one.

Community meetings regarding

this could help.

Louis caps stunning year with award

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY’S top secondary

school sportsmen and women

were honoured at the 29th Zonta

Awards at the Hornby Working

Men’s Club on Thursday night.

Christ’s College’s Louis

Clark was named the best

all-round young sportsman

who has achieved in more than

one sporting code. He gained

national selection in water polo

and provincial success in both

surf lifesaving and swimming.

The St Margaret’s College

under-18 rowing eight were

named the most outstanding

team of young sportswomen

after they won the Levin Jubilee

Cup at the Maadi Cup regatta in

March.

The St Andrew’s College mixed

adventure racing team won the

mixed team award after they

won the two-day schools’ Coast

to Coast race in February.

The most outstanding

individual achievement by a

young sportswoman and a young

sportsman, specialising in one

sport, was dominated by two

cyclists. Burnside High School’s

Sami Donnelly won the women’s

category and CBHS’s Lawrence

Pithie took the men’s category.

Pithie took double gold at

the same event, announcing

himself on the world stage in the

process. St Margaret’s College

student Kate Baird took the

women’s honour for her efforts

in badminton. The award for the

most valued contribution to a

team by a young sportswoman or

athletics.

REAL ESTATE

Modern magnificence

237 Mt Pleasant Road, Mount Pleasant

Auction: Thur 7 Nov at 4pm, on site (unless sold prior)

3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 car garaging | Listing Number OPA24823

Impeccably crafted and executed, this

spectacular brand new property overlooks

outstanding scenery, combining striking

visual form with the utmost convenience to

comfortably accommodate modern family

living.

Newly constructed to the latest

specifications, this build will provide peace

of mind, the architectural finish satisfying an

appetite for elegance.

Bold black cedar and Rockcote over

Integra panel cladding complements

the oak flooring indoors where designer

detailing include a David Trubridge feature

light, quality McKenzie and Willis window

furnishings and an exquisite kitchen.

Magnificent ocean and estuary views with

the sensational mountain views out to the

Kaikoura’s provide a sense of serenity, and

the glistening city lights ensure your outlook

is idyllic, even by night.

The intelligent layout places a strong

emphasis on lifestyle, which will appeal

to both families and couples who adore

entertaining.

Anchoring the open plan living is the chic

kitchen, complete with island bench, walk-in

pantry, high-end tiling and appliances. Eco

and hardwood decking effortlessly extends

from the home to provide outdoor living

areas across both floors, with a level lawn and

landscaped garden the perfect private setting

for socialising.

Excellent in-built storage options, and

contemporary convenience with partial

underfloor heating, two heatpumps, LED

lighting, gas fire, superior insulation and

double-glazing heightening comfort levels.

Three bedrooms accompanied by two

tiled bathrooms, the master enjoying a walkin

robe and ensuite. A second area can be

utilised in many ways: extra living, study or

even a media room if required.

Flat drive-on access and double internal

access garaging is a bonus for any hillside

home, while zoning for Mt Pleasant and

Redcliffs Primary Schools represent yet

another advantage.

This property will appeal to seekers

of a post-quake new build exuding lowmaintenance

luxury and design excellence.
