Battle over

plan to

open new

liquor shop

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-licence 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

with alcohol, I just don’t think it’s

suitable,” she said.

Ms Anderson said a number

of objections have already been

submitted to the city council, and

residents have until tomorrow to

send in their views.

OLD MATES: Former

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.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you want a new liquor

store on Memorial Ave? Email your views to

claire.booker@starmedia.kiwi

Community rallies against

Fendalton 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 would be open to

installing security cameras and

extra lights to promote safety in

the area.

OPPOSITION: Paul McMahon

does not want to see a new

liquor store open on Memorial

Ave. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Mr Kaur said the location was

chosen due to the busy nature of

the road. “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 alcohol-related 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

HAVE YOUR SAY: Who do you think should be the chair and deputy chair of the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community Board? Email your views to georgia.oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

Who will step up to lead?

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A DECISION on who will lead

the new Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

is on the horizon.

But most members are

staying tight-lipped on

whether they will be gunning

for the role.

Board members will be

sworn into their roles and will

vote on the new chair and

deputy on November 6.

For the past two terms, Mike

Mora has been chairman,

while Helen Broughton has

been deputy chairwoman

since 2013.

Before that, Mr Mora was

the chairman between 1999

and 2004.

Both Mr Mora and Mrs

Broughton told Western News

they would be happy to chair

the board in the new term.

But board members Gamal

Fouda, Andrei Moore and city

councillor Jimmy Chen did

not want to comment as they

had not discussed the issue

as a board yet and did not

wanting to show prejudice.

City councillor Catherine

Chu said she has not thought

about who she would like to

see in the role – but said Mr

Mora and Mrs Broughton had

done a “fantastic job” in the

previous terms.

“It was their leadership that

got us through many difficult

times in the past three years,”

she said.

Cr Chu confirmed she

supports Mrs Broughton.

Board member Mark Peters

said he probably wouldn’t go

for the chair role as he was

“still learning the ropes.”

“Then again if it is

something the others want

me to do, then I may have to

reconsider.”

Mr Peters said he has not

thought too much about

and deputy

chair will be.

who he would like to see in

the role but was “keeping an

open mind” and hopes there

will not be any party politics

involved.

“It should be what is best for

the community . . . I would

like to think this election we

can turn over a fresh leaf,” he

said.

While Debbie Mora would

not say who she would support

in the leadership roles or

whether she would go for one

herself, she said whether the

new chairs were experienced

or not they would have

support from the city council’s

staff.

City councillor Anne

Galloway did not respond to

Western News.

Both Mr Mora and Mrs

Broughton said they could

not comment on whether they

had enough support to be

re-elected into their previous

roles. “It is up to the board

members to decide,” Mr Mora

said.

Mrs Broughton, who is

aligned to Independent

Citizens, said the roles could

be chosen based on the

political groups each member

is aligned with.

The board is made up of five

members from The People’s

Choice, while the other

four are either Independent

Citizens or independent.

Mrs Broughton said it would

be a “shame” if one party outvoted

the other.

She said there has already

been discussions between the

political party groups and she

was concerned about “party

politics” influencing the

decision. “This is one thing the

public does not like … closing

ranks and bringing in party

politics is terrible for the new

incoming board members,”

she said.

FURRY FRIENDS: The SPCA’s Christchurch centre has 68 kittens in its care and this number is

expected to increase. ​

Kitten cuteness at SPCA

KITTEN SEASON has begun at

the SPCA’s Christchurch centre.

The centre in Hornby 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.

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.

The whole outfit took

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

could use the inside of the

of open service in military

AN EXHIBITION has

been opened at the Air

Force Museum of New

25 years since LGBTQ+

welcome to serve openly in

its three services.

The exhibition was officially

opened as part of

the New Zealand Defence

Force’s Pride 25 programme.

A Rainbow Legacy: The

story of Squadron Leader

Peter Rule, tells the story

of Auckland-born Peter

Rule, who joined the Royal

New Zealand Air Force as

a pilot in 1954.

He went on to have a

distinguished military

career, was a member of

the RNZAF’s Antarctic

Flight, represented New

Zealand as a military

liaison officer at the United

Nations, serving in Korea

and the Middle East, and

was awarded an MBE for

was an amazing feat to do

so well against so many

other experienced entrants.

Lucy said she is definitely

planning to enter more

competitions including the

Art Couture NZ competition

next year.

PROGRESSIVE: A new exhibition has opened at the

Air Force Museum of New Zealand to tell the story of

Royal New Zealand Air Force pilot Peter Rule. ​

Mr Rule was devastated,

and in spite of going on to

make a successful career as

an arts administrator, he

suffered from depression

and died suddenly in 1987.

Mr Rule’s legacy led to

the establishment of the

Rule Foundation in 1995,

with his estate, as per his

wishes, being used to assist

LGBTQ+ people and

projects.

By telling the story of Mr

Rule, the exhibition acknowledges

all those who,

like him, suffered discrimination

in the past on the

grounds of their sexual

orientation.

The exhibition also

celebrates how far the

NZDF has come to being

a diverse and inclusive

military.

story of Squadron Leader

Peter Rule is on display

now at the Air Force

Museum of New Zealand,

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

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.

School buildings renovated

• By Kim Thomas

JUNIOR PUPILS at Oaklands

School in Halswell have moved

into a renovated and expanded

junior block – the first completed

stage of the school’s campus

redevelopment.

A new $180,000 junior playground

funded by the board of

trustees and PTA has also just

been installed.

The school is in the middle of

a $5 million-plus redevelopment

which is part of the Ministry of

Education rebuild programme

following the earthquakes.

Oaklands School principal

Margaret Trotter said she is

thrilled students in their first two

years of school have a lovely new

area to learn in.

A new extension links two

existing junior blocks to create a

dedicated junior school area.

The extension is light and airy

and has exposed timber beams

in the ceiling, she said.

It has window seats and looks

out over a native garden under

development with students input.

Mrs Trotter said the block also

features covered private decks for

the use of junior school pupils,

and a wet area for experimental

learning.

Because Oaklands School

buildings held up well in the

earthquakes, the completed

campus will be a unique mix of

new buildings and refurbished

existing long ‘Canterbury’

blocks from when the school was

newly-completed classroom. (From left) – Brieana, Clyde, Felix,

opened in the 1960s, Mrs Trotter

said.

Work is under way to build

a new office and a new flexible

learning block as well as the

refurbishment of an existing

building to create a state-of-theart

hub for year 7 and 8 pupils.

This work will be finished by

the end of this year, Mrs Trotter

said.

Next year refurbishment of the

two Canterbury blocks will take

place, and the development of

an outside courtyard where the

whole school can gather.

Playground opened

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A CELEBRATION has been

held to mark the opening of

Wigram Primary School’s

junior playground.

The opening was held recently

to thank businesses in the area

which supported the school in

its fundraising efforts to construct

the playground.

The $40,000 playground

includes a climbing frame, monkey

bars and a slide.

Board of trustees member

and parent volunteer Helena

Dinnissen said the school

saved more than $20,000 after

recycling from its previous

playground at the former

Sockburn School site.

She said this included pulling

apart the old playground,

transporting it and upgrading

it to meet New Zealand

playground standards.

The opening was attended by

donators including South Island

Foodstuffs Trust, Wigram Skies

Area Lions Club, engineering

consultant Eliot Sinclair, United

Fisheries and a member from

the school’s PTA.

However, fundraising isn’t

over yet, with the school

planning to construct a senior

playground costing more than

$110,000 targeted for year 4 to 6

pupils.

Mrs Dinnissen said the

school needs to fundraise a

further $110,000 to complete the

playground.

The new playground will

include two-level towers, a slide,

spider web and 11 climbing

activities.

Mrs Dinnissen said

depending on how fundraising

goes, it is hoped construction

on the playground will begin

in the summer. The school had

a grant of $8000 from gaming

trust CERT, which has already

dug out land and installed the

wooden surrounds for the new

playground.

Mrs Dinnissen said the school

is hoping to build a scooter

track around the perimeter

of the senior playground

and an obstacle course when

completed.

Russley Village cleans up garden awards

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

JUDITH AND Keith McFarlane

love adding a “spot of colour”

to their lives by getting out and

gardening.

But little did the couple, living

at Russley Village, know their

flair for cultivating beautiful

gardens would be recognised in

a city-wide gardening competition.

The couple were entered

without their knowledge by

the retirement village in the

Christchurch Beautifying

Association Spring Garden

Competition.

They have now won two top

gardening awards – the Clark

Everett Cup and certificate of

merit.

Mrs McFarlane, 85, said while

they weren’t expecting any

awards it was a nice surprise to

be recognised.

While she relies more on Mr

McFarlane, 87, to maintain their

garden, Mrs McFarlane still gets

out there most days.

She describes her garden as a

“profusion of colour” filled with

polyanthus.

Mrs McFarlane said many of

the residents in the village have

told her their garden brings

cheer to their day.

Mr and Mrs McFarlane, who

SPRINGTIME: Russley Village has won an accolade of

awards in the Christchurch Beautifying Association spring

garden competition. ​

moved to Russley Village three

years ago, have been married for

63 years.

It is not the first time the

couple has been recognised for

their gardens, having won many

awards since entering competitions

in 1996.

The couple were not the only

ones at the village to be recognised.

Russley Village was

recognised with a Certificate

of Merit along with Eddi and

Tasty Bites

Sweet and savoury

dishes of the world

These sweet and savoury treats from Russia and Japan are quick to prepare

and very adaptable

Russian apple cake

Serves 8-10

Ingredients

6 large apples (granny smiths are

perfect for this)

3 large good-quality eggs, at

room temperature

1 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup flour

Pinch cinnamon

Directions

Grease an 18cm round cake

tin with removable bottom. Line

with greaseproof paper.

Prepare the apples by peeling

and removing core. Cut the

apples into small chunks and

place directly into prepared cake

tin.

Using an electric mixer, whisk

the eggs with the sugar and

vanilla until thick and airy and

ribbons form on the surface.

Sift in the flour and fold

through until just combined.

Pour over the apples – the egg

mixture should end up level with

the apples. Bake in a pre-heated

oven for 40-45min or until a

skewer comes out clean. Cool for

10min in the tin then remove and

cool. This cake is delicious warm

or cold.

Okonomiyaki pancake

Makes 4 large or 8 small

Ingredients

½ small cabbage, very thinly

sliced

4 carrots, julienned or sliced as

thinly as possible

½ red onion, sliced thinly

4 leaves kale, cavolo nero, stalks

removed and sliced very thin

1 tsp salt

6 eggs, lightly beaten

½ cup flour or rice flour

Oil for frying

To serve

2 spring onions, sliced thinly

Japanese mayonnaise

Okonomiyaki sauce

Directions

Toss all the prepared vegetables

and salt together in a large bowl.

Mix through the eggs and flour

until evenly combined.

Heat a large fry pan on

medium-high heat. Coat the

bottom of the fry pan with oil.

When hot, add pancake

mixture.

Make either four large or eight

small. These pancakes should

be thick (½cm) and full of

vegetables.

If making the large ones you

may only be able to cook one at

a time. If this is the case, you can

refresh them in a warm oven.

Cook them until golden and

crispy (3min).

Carefully flip and continue

cooking until golden on the other

side. When cooked, remove and

keep warm. Serve with sauces

squiggled over the top and

sprinkle with spring onions.

Optional toppings are pork

belly slices or shrimps.

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.

Open Homes Wednesday 11:30-12:00pm

and Saturday and Sunday 3:30-4:00pm.
