request to

improve

Riccarton

streets

• By Louis Day

RICCARTON could see 26 streets

become a priority for roading

improvements.

This comes after city councillors

endorsed an investment case

which will ask for $40 million

from the Government’s Christchurch

regeneration acceleration

fund for roading and transport

improvements.

The case proposes using

$25 million to $30 million on

improvements to five suburban

areas, including Riccarton, which

will focus on enhancing “accessibility,

safety and asset condition.”

It sets aside $6,990,000 for 26

Riccarton streets.

Improvements to Linwood

and Woolston are estimated to

cost $5,103,500, $6,677,500 for

New Brighton, $5,879,500 for

Richmond and $5,118,000 for

the wider Spreydon/Somerfield/

Waltham/Beckenham area.

A further $5 million to $7

million is proposed to accelerate

targeted safety improvements to

reduce death and serious injury

crashes.

New fuel

station for

Islington

DISCOUNT FUEL supplier

NPD has opened a new station in

Islington.

Located on Main South Rd, the

site is open 24/7.

Chief executive Barry Sheridan

says NPD’s aim is to bring lower

fuel prices to South Island motorists.

“We’re really pleased with the

support and positive feedback we

are receiving from the Islington

community. We now have 10

sites within Christchurch and

a further 11 in the wider Canterbury

area, highlighting our

commitment and confidence in

the province.”

Mr Sheridan says NPD is looking

to add another 17 retail sites

in the South Island over the next

12 months.

“NPD is a family owned business,

and we are proud to be expanding

our network throughout

the South Island.”

The new Islington site offers

100Plus, NPD’s new high-octane

performance petrol.

“Many modern cars benefit

from a higher-octane petrol

and the special formulation in

100Plus also delivers a number of

other benefits for many engines,’’

Mr Sheridan said.

Mother realising her sporting dreams

•From page 1

“It felt pretty crazy amazing,

some events, in particular, I was

genuinely blown away with my

results, and especially proud of

the records I broke,” Mrs Dinnissen

said.

She won gold for sprints,

jumps and hurdles, 60m, 100m,

200m, 400m, 100m hurdles,

400m hurdles, long jump, triple

jump and high jump.

Mrs Dinnissen’s biggest

achievement was high jump with

her clearing 1.71m.

“I’m only 1.68m tall, and my

previous best was 1.55m so this

was a huge improvement and

to jump over my height just

blew me away. I honestly never

thought I could do that”.

Her goal is to now become

‘New Zealand’s fastest mum’

with her set to compete in the

World Masters Athletics Championships

in Toronto next year.

She is currently training six

days a week for about one-and-ahalf

to two hours each day in the

lead-up to the event.

Mrs Dinnissen is training

to compete in the heptathlon

(200m, 800m, long jump, high

jump, 100m hurdles, shot put

and javelin and said she “would

love to win”.

“I hope to medal in all of them,

of course golds would be amazing,”

she said.

Although she loved athletics as

a teenager, throughout her 20s,

Mrs Dinnissen struggled with

low self-worth, depression and

anxiety.

“I never knew how to ask for

help, or have the skills to persevere.

It was heart-breaking to be

honest, I regretted it all my 20s

that I had not pursued a sporting

career,” Mrs Dinnissen said.

She also believed she could

never pursue her sporting dreams

after starting a family at 25.

But at 32-years-old, following

her third child, Mrs Dinnissen

decided she wanted to get moving

again.

AMBITION:

Helena

Dinnissen is

encouraging

SLOAN

“I had been doing so much

work on myself mentally and finally

had the strength to fight. It

started with a jog and has turned

into this”.

Mrs Dinnissen is encouraging

other mothers to get into athletics.

“I am totally biased, but yes,

there is something for everyone.

I think when you start competing

and get times it gives you

a focus, to work towards and

challenge yourself rather than

exercising just for the sake of it.”

On top of juggling training

and raising three children, Mrs

Dinnissen runs a small fundraising

business targeted at preschools,

schools and charities

which turns photos and artwork

into jewellery and key-chains.

On top of her high sporting

achievements, Mrs Dinnissen

has overcome serious health

issues including endometrioses,

prolapses discs, a fractured spine

and torn hips.

Mrs Dinnissen will need

$20,000 to cover both the trip to

Toronto and training leading up

to the event.

Bus priority measures proposed

•From page 1

Another $5 million to $8 million

is proposed for improving

bus priority measures on key

public transport routes across the

city.

The investment case said

without a cash injection traffic

congestion would increase and

“undermine the city’s regeneration.”

The report also stated about

300km of the 3000km of roading

owned by the city council was

severely damaged or needed

to be dug up for repairs to

other infrastructure after the

earthquakes.

But while the city council and

Government spent $2.2 billion

on a five-and-a-half-year programme

to fix horizontal infrastructure,

the report states many

assets need to be repaired over

the next 30 years to bring them

back up to pre-quake levels.

The Christchurch regeneration

acceleration fund was first

announced by Labour in 2017 as

part of its pre-election plan for

Canterbury to accelerate recovery

from the earthquakes.

The $300 million fund was

intended to repair horizontal

infrastructure and advance key

regeneration projects, such as the

multi-use arena.

A minute of silence was held

before a city council meeting to

honour the former councillor and

Deputy Mayor on Thursday.

Said Mayor Lianne Dalziel at

hard giving over a family member

to public service, but Lesley’s is a

record of which each and every one

of you should be proud.’’

Mrs Keast served three terms

on the Paparua County Council

before she was elected as the city

councillor for the Riccarton-

Wigram Board in 1992.

She served as Deputy Mayor

from 1998 to 2004, during which

time she ran the Mayor’s Welfare

Fund and advanced numerous

community projects.

Mayor Dalziel said after retiring

from the city council, Mrs Keast

remained active in the community,

including her leadership of

the Riccarton Park Restoration

Charitable Trust.

“In June this year, Lesley also

welcomed the news that families

would start to move into a new

housing development in Hornby

in the street that had been named

in her honour, Lesley Keast Place.”

At the heart of our city since the founders laid the

first roads and planted the first trees, St Michael’s

limitless potential

to lead exciting and

them, to encourage

every child to flourish

spirit.

St Michael’s is a prep

school for girls and boys in Years

1-8. ‘Prep’ as in preparation for

secondary school, a foundation

for a fine life. For at the heart of St

Michael’s are the essential values of

Christian faith and good citizenship:

respect, integrity, community, faith,

hope and love.

An independent school education

at the primary level is a great gift.

Our classes are small, with year-groups of 20 pupils,

ensuring your child is an individual, well known by

staff and fellow pupils alike.

Traditional foundations in English and Maths are

assured. This academic rigour then underpins

our wider curriculums in History, Geography,

Science and Spanish.

IT literacy is taught,

not assumed, and

computer use is

measured. We like

teaching and talking to

our pupils!

Eco-friendly food wrap wins award

• By Claire Booker

DIRECTORS: The Christchurch Girls’ High School Azul team won an award at the Young

Enterprise Scheme regional awards last week. Team members (from left) Huda Abdulridha, Lina

Eljindi, Strev Balmoria, Nicka Pascual, Caryl Cerro accepted the award. ​

AN ECO-friendly alternative to

plastic food wrap designed by

Christchurch Girls’ High School

enterprise students has been

recognised as one of the best

products in the region.

The company, called Azul won

the Rotary Club of Christchurch

Sunrise YES Regional Excellence

Award for Social Enterprise at

the Young Enterprise Scheme

regional awards last fortnight.

Azul’s chief executive, year

13 pupil Strev Balmoria, who

lives in Riccarton, said it was a

privilege to be recognised as one

of the top six young enterprise

companies in the region.

Said Strev: “We are grateful

to have had this opportunity to

showcase a solution to the everincreasing

plastic issue facing

our society today.”

The E-Wrap product the company

designed is gelatine-based

and is 100 per cent environmentally

friendly.

The wrap is produced at a

shareholder’s house, and Strev

said the production process is

fairly simple. Once the mixture

is formed, it is left to set for a few

days before it is packaged.

The idea from the product

came from the group members

shared passion for the environment.

“Every day we see single-use

plastics, wrapped in our food

and in abundance in our school

canteen, so we were inspired by

our surroundings to come up

with an alternative to single-use

plastics,” Strev said.

The group has made nine sales

and have profited $76.50.

The five year 13 pupils will

not continue the business after

the school year finishes, but

Strev hopes the initiative of the

company will inspire future

students to look for solutions for

environmental issues.

“We faced a lot of difficulties

producing our product but,

despite that, our passion for

saving the environment became

our driving force to continue

making our product a reality,”

Strev said.

Barbara Harding responds

to last week’s Western

News article on a proposed

liquor store on Memorial

Ave

I am utterly appalled to think

that yet another shop selling

alcohol may be granted a licence

in an area already well served for

alcoholic beverages, and also with

so many schools in the vicinity.

What possible positives could

there be to offering such a retail

outlet? I can only see the negatives

in a country where unfortunately

alcohol is over-consumed and

often the major cause of family

violence and broken homes.

Why not put a florist there?

New World offers some flowers,

but very few. With the church just

down the road, and being on a

main road for commuters, I could

imagine that this would be a very

worthwhile and attractive retail

option.

Why not send out the message

to tourists heading to the

airport that we are a garden

city? Failing that, a sushi shop

could most certainly be a great

option as there are none nearby,

and this could provide some

healthy snack options for passing

schoolchildren, as well as workers.

Please, do not allow this

proposed off-licence. It is a terrible

and ridiculous idea. Locals will

fight it all the way and hope that

those we have chosen to represent

us on the council will hear our

voices.

was a male counsellor. People

have had very inappropriate

quotes [made] when they went

in to deal with statutory rape.

People were told: ‘You’re not

trying hard enough, try harder

to get better,’ that kind of thing,”

she said.

This year students paid a

collective $499,000 for five fulltime

health centre counsellors,

extra staff during exam times,

and a triage counsellor being

trialled this year.

In a written statement, the

university said it had upped

the health centre’s resources

each year since 2017 and

students who declare urgent

needs are seen by nurses or GPs

if there’s no counsellors readily

available.

It also detailed other

changes being made because

of feedback and was urging the

complainants to come forward.

A spokesperson said they

hoped to make the triage

counsellor permanent, to make

sure students on the wait-list

were safe and provide interim

assistance, and that counsellors

were designing a questionnaire

to gather anonymous feedback

from every client.

The health centre’s medical

director, Joan Allardyce, said

the criticism was disappointing

and surprising, as it didn’t match

feedback given directly to the

health centre.

Mason dominates masters

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

ST MARGARET’S College

student Abby Mason was

in a dominant mood at the

New Zealand Masters tennis

tournament in Wellington last

week,

Abby lost just 11 games

and did not drop a set in four

matches on her way to winning

the under-16 girls title.

The top-seed beat second seed

Lucy Xu, Auckland, 6-1 6-0 in

the final.

Her coach James Meredith

said the tournament was a good

lead-in for nationals and allowed

players to match-up against each

other prior to the big event.

The rest of the Canterbury

teams also went well, with Cashmere

players leading the way.

The best performer was

11-year-old Lucia Gale who

finished second in the under-12

girls category. The top-seed was

beaten in straight sets 5-7 2-6

6-2 by Samoa’s Mahinarangi

Warren.

Meredith said Lucia had a

chance to get ahead at 5-4 in

the first set but unforced errors

against a taller, bigger opponent

eventually told. “This was a good

opportunity for Lucia to test

herself against (Mahinarangi)

TALENT: Abby Mason added another title to her tennis resume

at the New Zealand Masters in Wellington.

before they’re likely to meet at

the nationals in December,”

Meredith said.

“Lucia is only 11 and did her

best to handle the extra height

and the windy conditions as well

as she could.”

Teammate Ruby McPhail lost

her fifth to eighth encounter to

Auckland’s Maia Elisha Liu 6-2

6-1.

Cashmere duo Jake Parsons

and Mac Bulman met in the

third and fourth play-off in the

under-12 boys category with

Jake prevailing after Mac had to

WESTERN NEWS

retire hurt with the score at 3-6

5-1.

Lily McHarg finished 12th in

the under-12 girls category after

losing 2-6 1-6 to Maia Krzanic-

Sullivan. Liam Barrett finished

fourth in the under-14 boys draw

after the fifth seed lost his third

and fourth play-off to Carlson

Lim 1-6 3-6. Eliana Roelofs finished

15th in the under-16 girls

draw. The 13th seed finished her

campaign with a 6-3 6-0 victory

over Nelson’s Ashley Welsh.

WESTERN NEWS

Baking the ultimate banana bread

This amazing banana

bread doesn’t crumble,

stays moist and freezes

well. It’s also the perfect

way to top off gnudi with

asparagus, which makes

for a tasty meal any time

of the day

Banana bread brilliance

Makes 14-15 slices

Ingredients

270g self-raising flour

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp ground cinnamon

¼ tsp ground cloves

80g butter, melted

140g dark cane sugar

3 large eggs, size 7

1 tsp vanilla extract

450g very ripe bananas, weighed

without skin, mashed (4-5 large

bananas)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 170 deg C

on bake.

Sift the flour, baking soda,

cinnamon and cloves into a large

bowl and stir well to combine.

Set aside.

Put the melted butter, dark

cane sugar, eggs and vanilla

extract into a medium-sized

bowl and beat together for

several minutes on high speed

until thick and creamy.

Reduce the speed and

gradually add the mashed

bananas, beating until well

combined. Make a well in the

centre of the dry ingredients and

stir in the banana mixture a third

at a time, mixing well after each

addition.

Tip into the prepared tin

(either loaf tin or cake tin) and

smooth the top.

Bake until golden brown – it

should be firm to the touch

and a skewer inserted into the

centre should come out clean

(about 50-55 minutes). You may

need to cover the bread with

baking paper for the last 15min

of cooking if it is browning too

much.

Remove from the oven and

cool on a wire rack for about

20min. Slide a knife between

the side of the tin and the bread

to loosen it. Invert the tin on to

a wire rack, remove the baking

paper, turn right way up and

leave to cool.

To serve the loaf, cut it into

thick slices and toast if you wish.

Cuts into 14-15 slices.

To serve as a cake, use ice

with lemon icing or leave plain.

Without the icing, the banana

flavour is more pronounced.

Cuts into 16-20 slices.

Gnudi with asparagus

Serves 4

Ingredients

400g ricotta

2 eggs

1 egg yolk

120g freshly grated parmesan,

plus extra for serving

100g flour

1 tsp salt

freshly ground pepper

semolina flour

2 bunches asparagus, woody

ends removed and cut into 3cm

pieces

50g butter

4 sprigs of thyme, marjoram or

basil

juice of ½ a lemon,

Directions

In a large bowl, mix together

ricotta, eggs, egg yolk, flour,

seasoning and parmesan cheese.

Mix to combine. Put into a

piping bag with large plain

nozzle.

Dust a tray heavily (5mm)

with semolina and pipe 2cmwide

tubes the length of the tray.

Continue until all the mix is used

and gently roll the tubes in the

semolina.

Chill for as long as possible (an

hour or overnight).

Bring a large pot of salted

water to the boil.

While the water is coming

to the boil, heat a large fry pan

with butter, add the herbs and

asparagus and cook until the

asparagus becomes tender (about

4min).

Cut the gnudi into 4cm

lengths, cook in boiling water.

When it rises to the top (about

3-4min) remove and drain.

Add them to the asparagus,

season, grate over plenty of

parmesan cheese and enjoy

immediately.

Tips for untreated hearing loss

Hearing is a sense that many of us

take for granted. Throughout our lives,

we subject our ears to loud sounds–

music, power tools, lawn mowers, air

travel–without using ear protection.

regrettably, this can cause hearing

loss. also, the natural aging process

generally results in hearing loss. even

certain illnesses and medications

can adversely affect our

hearing. Unfortunately,

hearing loss that occurs

from such causes is

permanent.

The good news is, even

if you already have a little

hearing loss, it’s never

too late to preserve your

hearing for the years ahead.

The first thing you can do

is protect your ears in noisy

environments. also, avoid

using cotton swabs to clean

your ears. and, make it a

priority to get a baseline

hearing screening to see

if hearing loss has already

occurred.

if hearing loss is found

during your hearing

evaluation, it could be

due to excess ear wax or

infection. This type of

hearing loss is reversible.

if hearing loss stems

from chronic exposure

to loud noise, aging, or certain illnesses

and medications, hearing aids are the

best way to preserve your good hearing.

The great news about today’s hearing

aids is how small and easy to wear

they are. Modern digital hearing

aids use super-tiny microprocessor

technology–making them virtually

invisible when worn. Hearing aids

can help almost all degrees of hearing

loss–from a little to a lot. and, by

stimulating your brain with sound that

might not otherwise reach it, hearing

aids help keep your brain active, which

lowers your risk for cognitive diseases,

such as dementia.

if you suspect you may have hearing

loss, don’t ignore it. neglecting a

hearing loss can have a snowball effect–

making it grow bigger, faster than

necessary.

Here are 10 ways you can limit

hearing damage and preserve good

hearing:

1. Understand the sound levels of the

noises in your environment.

2. Learn about proper ear protection.

There are many kinds on the market

today, ranging from custom ear

molds to foam plugs and more.

3. Put physical distance between you

and loud noise when it is present. if

possible, stand at an angle from the

noise, not directly in front of it.

4. Take breaks when you are exposed to

noise.

5. When listening to music through

headphones or earbuds, keep the

volume low-to-medium.

6. Know the signs of hearing loss, and

measure yourself against them.

7. schedule a baseline hearing

evaluation. Hearing loss is on the rise

among Baby Boomers and young

people. it’s never too early to get your

hearing checked, but don’t wait past

age 50.

8. Have your hearing evaluated by a

professional licensed by your state.

9. if you have hearing loss caused by

a reversible condition, take steps to

correct it.

10. if any permanent hearing loss is

diagnosed, choose hearing aids to

slow it down, and preserve good

hearing.
