Concerns

over cold

social

housing

complexes

• By Matt Slaughter

THE STATE of social housing

units in Addington has sparked

debate.

New Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board member Callum

Stewart-Ward says accommodation

at the Harman Courts and

Feast Place housing complexes

on Poulson St is cold and he will

advocate for it to be improved.

While some residents of these

complexes agree with Mr Stewart

Ward, others are happy with

their living situation and the

city council is looking into how

to improve the “warmth and

dryness” of properties in these

complexes.

Feast Place housing complex

resident Nico Walker said his

unit is cold and it will be good

for residents if something is done

to make their accommodation

warmer.

“I can’t afford money for a

heater so I just wrap myself in a

blanket.

“I don’t mind about the

coldness but it would be good

for the older people if it was

warmer.”

$40m plan to fix damaged, unsafe roads

• By Louis Day and Matt Slaughter

ROADS IN south Christchurch

deemed to be in very poor

condition or unsafe have been

identified by the city council for

improvements.

This comes

after city

councillors endorsed

an investment

case

which will ask

for $40 million

from the

Government’s

Christchurch

Yani Johanson

regeneration

acceleration

fund for roading and transport

improvements.

The investment case identifies

the need to spend about $25

million to $30 million on

roading improvements in

Linwood, Woolston, Spreydon,

Somerfield, Waltham,

Beckenham, Riccarton,

Richmond and New Brighton.

Improvements to the

Spreydon/Somerfield/Waltham/

Beckenham area are estimated

to cost $5,118,000, while

$5,103,500 would be spent in

Linwood/Woolston, $6,677,500

in New Brighton, $6,990,000 in

Riccarton, and $5,879,500 for

Richmond.

council was severely damaged or

needed to be dug up for repairs

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 investment

case states many assets need

to be repaired over the next 30

years to bring them back up to

pre-quake levels.

All city councillors voted

for the investment case, except

Harewood city councillor Aaron

Keown, at their first official

meeting on Thursday.

The remainder of the $40

million will be spent on bus

priority and reducing serious

injury and fatal crashes.

Cr Keown said he voted

against the report because he

wanted all the money to go to

roading improvements.

“No-one in my 12 years of

being elected has asked me for a

bus lane,” he said.

The report will now be sent to

the Treasury.

City councillor Yani Johanson

said the money was a “small drop

in the bucket of what is needed.”

“I do want to sound a word of

caution – $40 million will not go

very far at all. If you think about

North Avon Rd roading renewal,

one roading renewal costs $6

million. There are a number of

would include:

roads in there, and if they cost

$6 million each, it is not going

to be hundreds it is going to be a

handful,” he said.

The investment case said

without a cash injection, traffic

congestion would increase

and “undermine the city’s

regeneration.”

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.

Pioneer’s multi-sensory upgrade

PEOPLE WITH special needs

will soon be able to have

an improved multi-sensory

experience at the Pioneer

Recreation and Sport Centre.

The Southern Centre

Charitable Trust, which works

with the city council to run the

Southern Centre, has raised

$45,233 to help upgrade the

computer system which controls

the interactive equipment in

the room. Different pieces of

equipment will now be easily

activated by switches.

These improvements will be

made early next year.

The centre, on the first floor

of Pioneer, gives visitors the

opportunity to make sounds, feel

vibrations, experience smells,

touch different textures and

move lights around the room.

The environment is designed

for pre-schoolers, children and

adults who have physical or

intellectual disabilities and those

who suffer from anxiety or other

mental health issues.

Trust chairman Craig Scott

said the computer upgrade will

make a difference to the centre’s

clients.

Said Mr Scott: “The old system

was in desperate need of an

upgrade and we’re really pleased

to have been able to bring some

improvements.”

City council head of recreation,

“There’s a lot of research

showing the benefits of a multisensory

environment, including

promoting intellectual activity,

such as memory recall and

encouraging relaxation and

social skills.

“For some of the users it’s

one of the few places they feel

comfortable going outside their

Residents urged to contact council

•From page 1

Mr Stewart-Ward said of the

properties at Harman Courts:

“They’re quite sort of old cubes

that were deemed uninsulatable

by the Otautahi Community

Housing Trust because some of

the properties didn’t have roof

cavities or

anything like

that. It meant

that they sort of

stayed cold and

damp. I know

of one resident

Callum

Stewart-Ward

who paid out of

her own pocket

for a heat pump

and got that

installed.”

But Harman Courts resident

Wayne, who moved to the complex

two months ago and wants

to keep his last name anonymous,

said his new unit is much warmer

than the flat he shifted from elsewhere

in Christchurch.

“I’ve been as warm as. They’re

[residents are] very lucky to have a

place like this.”

Said city council head of

facilities, property and planning

Bruce Rendall: “All properties are

insulated to the required legislative

standards and are compliant with

the Residential Tenancies Act.

“While all our units meet legislative

requirements the council

are considering how to improve

the warmth and dryness of all

their properties. This will include

insulation work at the Feast Place

complex – some of this work

has commenced and the rest is

planned over the next 14 months.”

Mr Stewart-Ward said he will

push for the complaints procedure

for residents concerned about

the state of the houses they are

living in to be made easier and the

management of social housing in

Addington to be improved.

He urges people with concerns

about the state of social housing

in South Christchurch to discuss

these with the community board

so they can be raised with the city

council.

funding sought

A CROWDFUNDING campaign

to raise $20,000 could help take

Woolston’s community well-being

to the next level.

Funds will be used to hire a parttime

manager for Roimata Food

Commons at Radley Park, which

has promoted healthy eating by

providing free fruit and vegetables

to the public since 2017.

However, the entire amount will

need to be raised before November

25 in order for donations to be

confirmed, as the campaign is “all

or nothing.”

Founder and volunteer project

manager Michael Reynolds said

employing a full-time Kaitiaki or

vision holder to work with the

board of Roimata Commons Trust,

will help the initiative flourish.

The trust has relied entirely on

volunteers who have contributed

their time to establishing a thriving

food system, growing biodiversity

and running events on

more than 2.6ha of land alongside

the Heathcote River.

One of the major roles the

Kaitiaki will have is to try and

develop financial sustainability

for the commons by building

relationships with businesses.

The Dark Island

Leprosy in New Zealand and the Quail Island

Colony by Benjamin Kingsbury

From 1906 to 1925 Quail Island, in Lyttelton Harbour, was the site

of New Zealand’s leprosy colony. The colony began by accident, as it

were, after the discovery of a leprosy sufferer in Christchurch. As further

patients arrived from across the country, it grew into a controversial

and troubled institution – an embarrassment to the Health Department,

an object of pity to a few, a source of fear to many.

This remarkable narrative reveals a little-known aspect of New

Zealand’s past, shedding light on the treatment of some of society’s

most marginal, unfortunate and isolated people. Written in lucid,

compelling prose, The Dark Island heralds the arrival of a significant

historical voice.

Me Elton John

Sir Elton John, CBE, is a multi-award winning solo artist who has achieved

38 gold and 31 platinum or multi-platinum albums, has sold more than

300 million records worldwide, and holds the record for the biggest-selling

single of all time, ‘Candle in the Wind 1997’. In August 2018 Elton was

named the most successful male solo artist in the Billboard Hot 100 chart

history, having logged 67 entries, including nine Number 1s and 27 Top

10s. Elton launched his first tour in 1970 and since then has performed

over 4,000 times in more than 80 countries. When not recording or

touring, Elton devotes his time to a number of charities, including his own

Elton John AIDS Foundation, which has raised over $300 million and

funded programmes across four continents in the twenty-four years it has

existed. He is married to David Furnish, and they have two sons. Me is his

first and only official autobiography.

The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters

The Tragic and Glamorous Lives of Jackie and Lee

by Sam Kashner: Conversation Starters

Jackie was more traditional, private and quiet, while Lee explored

the modern and experimental. Lee was the flirtatious, outgoing and

fun-loving sister who loved to be in the limelight. The irony was that

it was Jackie who became the famous one and Lee was relegated as

the lady-in-waiting. Lee was original in her style, Jackie copied from

her and took the credit from the applauding international media, which

made Lee even more jealous. The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters peeks into

the private and public lives of these two women, showing their close

yet complicated relationship marked by rivalry and jealousy. The book

is written by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger who also wrote

about other famous personalities in their books A Talent for Genius

and Furious Love. Kirkus Reviews lauds the book’s “explorations of the

truths and fictions of Camelot [that] continue to mesmerize.”

Big Ideas for Small Houses

By Catherine Foster

A look at a range of small houses around New Zealand, and the

strategies the owners used to get a toehold in the tight housing market.

From building a secondary dwelling on an existing family section, to

tiny houses on pocket handkerchief pieces of land, these approaches

to housing will give ideas and inspiration to all wondering how it can

be possible to own a first home in the twenty-first century. Each entry

begins with a statement about the strategy the owner used to achieve a

home of their own. The houses range in size from 100 square metres

right down to a very cosy 34 square metres! Beautifully photographed,

and including plans and costs, the houses presented are in Puhoi,

west and north Auckland, Raglan, Tamahere, Taupiri, Whanganui,

New Plymouth, Wellington and Christchurch.

reflections behind her astonishing career, including such classics as

Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, Victor/Victoria and many others.

Cashmere High’s top business

minds take out awards

• By Jess Gibson

A GROUP of Cashmere High

School students have proven

themselves to be up-and-coming

entrepreneurs.

Josh McKernan, of Woolston,

Lukas Hornell, of Cashmere, Lyttelton’s

Finn McCabe, and Eddie

Hogan, of Mt Pleasant, came out

on top at the Young Enterprise

Scheme regional finals and

awards with their new product

called JELF.

They teamed up to create the

eco-friendly alternative to A4 and

A3 laminating pouches.

The group also won the opportunity

to present JELF at the

national finals in Wellington on

December 4.

Finn said they put their heads

together at the start of the year

in a bid to invent a new product

as part of their business studies

project.

He said as they discussed their

ideas, they wrote them down on a

sheet of laminated paper.

However, it ended up being

the laminated paper itself which

sparked their product idea.

The awards were held at Ara,

where the finalists pitched their

ideas in front of a panel of judges

and fought for the title.

There were 132 teams entered

in the competition, which was

narrowed down to six finalists.

Along with the top award, JELF

also won the Powell Fenwick YES

Regional Excellence Award for

Sustainability.

Finn said the accolades were

“absolutely amazing.”

“We never expected this at the

start of the year.”

He is moving to Wellington to

study a Bachelor of Commerce at

Victoria University next year but

said he will continue to focus on

getting JELF off the ground with

his teammates.

“At the moment we haven’t sold

anything, but we’ve started making

pre-sales,” Finn said.

The group is also looking to

create other products such as

shrink wrap. Another group of

Cashmere High School students

finished second at the awards

with their company Pivot.

Matt Benassi won the National

Teacher of the Year Award at the

event.

TWO performers from

Year 13 students Michael

Higgs and Jorja Farrant have

Cashmere High is the only

school in New Zealand to have

more than one student chosen

for the company, which will include

24 students from throughout

New Zealand.

The students’ selection was

a result of their good performances

Lucia leads the way for Cashmere

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

CASHMERE age-group tennis

players showed they can match

it with the best at the New

Zealand Masters tournament in

Wellington last week.

The top performer was

11-year-old Lucia Gale, who

finished second in the under-12

girls category.

Lucia, who was the top-seed,

was beaten in straight sets 5-7

2-6 6-2 by Samoa’s

Mahinarangi

Warren.

Coach James

Meredith said

Lucia had a chance

James

Meredith

to get on top at 5-4

in the first set, but

unforced errors

against a taller,

bigger opponent eventually took

a toll.

“This was a good opportunity

for Lucia to test herself against

(Mahinarangi) 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.”

Her teammate Ruby McPhail

lost her fifth to eighth play-off

encounter against Auckland’s

TALENT: Abby Mason added another title to her promising

tennis resume with the New Zealand Masters under-16

championship in Wellington.

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

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.

Elmwood’s Abby Mason, who

Meredith coaches privately, was

also in a dominant mood and

won her age-group.

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

Auckland’s Lucy Xu 6-1 6-0 in

the final.

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.

SO CLOSE: Cashmere’s Lucia Gale was runner-up in the under-12

girls competition.

• By Jacob Page

TWO HILLMORTON High School

korfball players have been named in

the New Zealand under-19 team for

a tournament in the Netherlands in

June.

Lynnette Sakaria and Kate Rich

will be part of the squad that will

compete at the International Korfball

Federation open European under-19

tournament.

The duo are considered two of the

top sport success stories at the school

and with both just being in Year 11,

they have a chance to build on the

success.

Chair of Korfball New Zealand

Rob Smith said both had a bright

future.

“They both have a good work ethic

and good basic ball skills from involvement

in other sports,” he said.

“Hillmorton High School has been

really supportive of Korfball Canterbury’s

schools and youth development

programme, which I am sure

has helped to set the two of them on

course with korfball.”

Smith admitted the team would

compete as underdogs at the event

but it was a tag they enjoyed having.

“We have sent teams to this tournament

before. It serves the purpose

of introducing our young players

to korfball at a significantly higher

level than they experience at home.”

Smith said.

“We are starting to create some

interest around international

korfball.

“We received the International

Korfball Federation’s World Korfball

Award for best elite development in

August, so there is an expectation

that we are progressing.”

He said the squad would attend

regular training camps on weekends

in the lead-up to the event with

many also taking part in weekly club

competitions.

Every Day is Open Day

At the heart of our city since the founders laid the

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

has held dear those early aspirations and visions,

while unleashing our own dreams for a lofty future.

Indeed, for 168 years, St Michael’s has been

educating and nurturing the visionaries and

dreamers who

continue to shape our

city and the world

beyond. For our

young pupils have

limitless potential

to lead exciting and

generous lives, and we

have the responsibility

to educate and inspire

them, to encourage

every child to flourish

in mind, body and

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!

A prep education

offers balance. St

Michael’s cultural and

sports’ programmes

further develop

your child’s

foundation, as

creativity and

problem-solving

come in many

forms. Specialist

art and music

classes are enjoyed

weekly. We have

three choirs,

and most pupils

participate in

instrumental or

speech & drama

lessons with our

ten itinerant staff.

Located in the

heart of the city,

opposite the

new Riverside

Farmers’ Market,

our extended

campus is

spectacular:

the Art Gallery

and Museum,

Tūranga, our new

central library,

and Hagley Park

are frequent

haunts.

Many of our parents now work in the thriving city

centre or Lincoln and Riccarton Road hubs, but

they live city-wide. They comment on the benefit of

knowing their children are in school nearby and the

convenience of popping over for an hour to catch a

performance or watch a race. With the new central

exchange only a block away, senior children arrive

by bus from all corners of the city.

You and your child are warmly welcome to discover

our purposeful, wholehearted and inclusive prep

school. Every day is open day, so please contact

registrar, Bec Hitchcock, to book your personal

Tasty Bites

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.

Heat pumps for

every home

Established in 2002, Enviro Master is a 100 per cent locally

owned business specialising in helping Cantabrians discover the

perfect heat pump or air-conditioning system for their home or

work place

The team includes not just sales people, but also qualified

electricians, and heating and refrigeration engineers, with many

years’ experience. You can be sure they have the know-how to

protect your home from extremes in temperature and air quality.

As suppliers and installers of Christchurch’s widest range of heat

pumps, with no affiliation to any one brand, they offer unbiased

advice on the benefits and differences between each product.

They will recommend the most energy-efficient and costeffective

heating or cooling system for your unique situation.

To help you choose the right system, one of their qualified

experts will visit your home to assess your situation, offer

professional advice and answer any questions you may have.

They follow an educated, objective, assessment process to

determine the best solution for you.

Your selected system will then be installed by professional,

experienced staff, who will also take the time to show you how to

operate it for long-term efficiency.

5-Star ratings

from satisfied

customers

I have had heat

pump around a month

now and it’s been fantastic

I would just like to pass my

many thanks onto you Grant and

the team for making it so easy

and stress free! Please pass on

my thanks to the install team

as I wasn’t home and they did

an awesome job and even

cleaned up afterwards.

Malachi Batchelor

I have

nothing but praise

for this business, the

recommendation we received on

the correct model to install and the

“reasons why” impressed us greatly.

Pricing was very competitive but the

main reason for our 5 stars was the

installation, which was on time, very neat

and Grant gave excellent advice on how

to get the best performance from the

heat pump. This business got our

business because they were

the best.
