Fears for elderly pedestrian

safety on busy Spreydon road

• By Matt Slaughter

THE SPEED limit on a busy

Spreydon road will not be

decreased in spite of it being

dangerous for elderly residents to

cross.

Athelstan St resident Sally

Stanley says before she started

using a walking frame it was

difficult to cross her street, but

now cars stop for her.

The only protection for pedestrians

who cross the road at the

end that Ms Stanley lives at is a

traffic island.

She said cars sometimes

drive too fast along this street,

which one of Barrington Mall’s

exits is on, and this is putting

her fellow elderly neighbours in

danger.

“Man alive, do they [motorists]

put their foot down.

“I’m a local and I’ve been here

all my life. That road was never

made for the traffic it gets.

“We have trouble getting

across.”

City council staff have

declined a request in a letter

to the Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board signed by six

of Ms Stanley’s neighbours for

the speed limit along Athelstan

St to be reduced from 50km/h to

30km/h.

• HAVE YOUR SAY: Have you noticed an increase in crime in Hoon Hay? Email your

thoughts to matt.slaughter@starmedia.kiwi

Meeting to address Hoon Hay crime

• By Matt Slaughter

CRIME AND safety concerns in

Hoon Hay will be discussed at a

community meeting.

Hoon Hay Community

Association chairman Alastair

Berney, said he has seen

residents

reporting

more crime,

particularly

car break-ins

recently.

Senior

Sergeant Roy

Roy Appley

Appley said

he is not

sure which

crimes have happened most

often in Hoon Hay, but thefts

from vehicles, burglaries,

neighbourhood disputes and

anti-social driving (boy racing)

have been happening the most

frequently across Christchurch.

Concerned residents, police

and neighbourhood support

representatives have been invited

to attend the meeting, organised

by Wigram MP Megan Woods.

It has been scheduled for

Thursday at 6pm at the Hoon

Hay Community Centre.

Senior Sergeant Appley, who

will be at the meeting said the

level of crime reported in Hoon

Hay recently does not indicate

‘There are pockets where

I think the crime rate has

gone up a wee bit’

– Alastair Berney

it has increased. However, he

said it is important to meet with

the community to encourage

people to report crime to give

police a more accurate picture

of this.

“Not reporting crime for me,

is actually good because it keeps

crime down, but it’s bad in the

respect of we don’t actually know

what the true picture is so we

can’t commit more resourcing to

an area if we don’t know,” said

Senior Sergeant Appley.

Said Mr Berney: “There are

pockets where I think the crime

rate has gone up a wee bit,” said

Mr Berney.

Senior Sergeant Appley said

the ideal outcome of the meeting

for police would be “that they

[residents] get reassured as to

what the police are doing in their

CONCERNS:

Residents

are reporting

break-ins to

area, secondly that we actually

discover everything that we

need to know about that area

and thirdly, that we might go

on to look for solutions that will

resolve the issues raised, which

also might include community

solutions, not just police

solutions.”

In Brief

NEW MENZSHED BUILDING

The St Martins Community

MenzShed has received a

donated classroom building

from Rangiora that will be

relocated to 43 St Martins

Rd. It will be a 60 sq m space

for men to work on wood

and metalwork projects. The

original smaller MenzShed

building will be dedicated to

electronics. The group has 50

members who want to assist

with community projects. The

building installation requires

consents, repairs and utility

connections before it can

become operational.

CAR PARK CONSTRUCTION

The construction of a car park

with pavement and fencing for

Halswell Domain on Edward

Stafford Ave is set to begin this

month and should be completed

by late January.

HOCKEY GRANT

A grant of $1500 has been

given to Southern United

Hockey Club towards the

cost of its development and

equipment project. The funds

came from the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community Board’s

Discretionary Response Fund.

This amount was less than the

$3628 the club requested.

Street compared to highway

• From page 1

The letter said the street is near

Barrington Mall, Barrington

Medical Centre, bus stops, taxi

stands and a lawyer’s office and is

very busy and stressful for some

older people to cross. These concerns

were raised with the board

in June.

The board requested city council

staff consider reducing the

speed limit along the street and

other traffic calming measures.

City council staff have reported

back to the board saying this is

not necessary.

Said the report from staff:

“2016 surveys indicate that the

average daily traffic flow for

Athelstan St 3921 vehicles per

day, with vehicles’ speed averaging

40km/h. An additional speed

survey on August 19 2019 showed

the average speed was 42km/h.

• HAVE YOUR

SAY: Do you think

the speed limit

along Athelstan

St should be

reduced to

30km/h? Email

your views to

matt.slaughter@

starmedia.kiwi

This would see Athelstan St rated

as low risk according to New Zealand

Transport Authority’s Speed

management guideline, it said.

“Of the three crashes on the

street in the last five years none

have involved pedestrians. Staff

have concluded that the safe and

appropriate speed for this street is

50km/h.

“Staff note that the constant

relatively high volumes of traffic

faced by local pedestrians would

not be affected by a reduced speed

limit. Staff noted also that traffic

calming measures are currently

not funded in the council’s Long

Term Plan.”

Ms Stanley is unhappy with

this decision.

“I just think it is disappointing.

She compared Athelstan St to

“a busy highway” at peak times of

the day.

Stolen artwork replaced in Halswell Quarry

ART: A new

artwork from

Adelaide

has been

unveiled in

Halswell

Quarry to

replace

another

piece that

was stolen. ​

A SCULPTURE stolen from

Halswell Quarry has been

replaced by a new one from

Adelaide.

The piece called Kaurna Wailyu

(Kaurna Leaves) which was

created by South Australian artist

Karen Genoff, Kaurna Wailyu

replaces another one of her

works, 2002 bronze sculpture,

The Spheres.

The work went missing in

April 2015, with only the stone

plinths left standing.

A weathering steel leaf and tree

and grit-etched Adelaide Hills

granite artwork now sits in the

same spot at the entrance to the

Adelaide Garden.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said

Kaurna Wailyu underlines the

similarities between the cities.

“We both recognise the importance

of the arts in the life and the

vitality of a liveable city,” she said.

“Both cities foster creativity

and innovation, and wonderful

works of art can prove uplifting

even in difficult times.

Representatives from Halswell

School performed waiata at the

unveiling ceremony, which was

also attended by Ngāi Tūāhuriri

representative Aroha Reriti-Crofts.

“Our sister city has always

reached out to us and continues

to provide support, with this

wonderful new work further

cementing our 47-year partnership,”

said Ms Dalziel.

The city council’s Christchurch-Adelaide

Sister City Committee

has commissioned the

artwork, with support from the

city of Adelaide.

Adelaide’s Lord Mayor Sandy

Verschoor said the work includes

indigenous elements in its design,

“an important reference to

Adelaide’s Kaurna history and

community,” she said.

“The City of Adelaide is proud

to present this artwork to the

people of Christchurch as an

enduring symbol of our special

relationship,” Lord Mayor Verschoor

said.

Committee chairman Dr Peter

Cottrell said it has been wonderful

to see all the committee’s

hard work come to fruition with

the delivery of Kaurna Wailyu.

“The artwork is the culmination

of more than four years

of interaction between Karen

Genoff in Adelaide and a large

group of people in Christchurch,

centred on the Sister City Committee,”

he said.

Ms Genoff said she “was

happy to create the sculpture for

Christchurch and to do my part as

an artist to work towards healing.”

“I thank Kaurna elder uncle

Lewis O’Brien for his stories and

the language which brings the

work to life,” she says. “It’s been a

privilege to represent my city to

create this work, she said.”

Feedback sought on Linwood bus hub

• By Matt Slaughter

OPTIONS BEING considered

to improve the public transport

hub on Buckleys Rd in Linwood

could make it safer and more

appealing.

Said Norwich St resident Neale

Tomlinson, whose house is near

the hub: “Where the bus stops

are now, which is over our fence,

there is a bit of a problem, it’s

not as bad as it used to be, but

it is a bit of a problem with the

bus stops getting smashed really

quite regularly and rubbish and

what have you.”

The city council has reported

the bus shelters on Buckleys Rd are

small and inadequate for the about

1400 passengers who use them a

day. It says getting across Buckleys

Rd is also difficult for passengers

because of the high volume of traffic

that uses the road.

It says some of the 480 buses

that use the Buckleys Rd stops

each day block people’s driveways.

The city council is asking for

feedback on possible options to

upgrade the bus hub and reduce

these issues.

It is proposing two potential

options. The first option is to

cul-de-sac Norwich St. It says

this will allow the bus stops to

be grouped together and more

space to be created for bus passengers

waiting.

PLEASED: Norwich St resident Neale Tomlinson supports the

city council’s proposal to improve the public transport hub on

Buckleys Rd, Linwood.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

This option will mean buses

will no longer stop across driveways

but it will stop vehicles

travelling between Norwich St

and Buckleys Rd.

Mr Tomlinson supports the

first option and said it could also

reduce vandalism of the bus stops

because the area they would be

moved to is not hit with damage

and graffiti as often.

He said grouping the bus stops

together could mean if they are

vandalised, the area to clean up

would be much smaller.

Said city council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis: “With the cul-desac

option there is space for some

form of seating, trees, a grass

bank, a drinking fountain and a

paved play area.”

The second option is to retain

a left turn from Norwich St onto

Buckleys Rd. This option would

split the bus stops but enable limited

access to be retained between

Norwich St and Buckleys Rd.

“With the left-turn option

there is space for some planting

their prefered option to improve the bus hub next to Eastgate

Shopping Centre in Linwood.

and a seat or a drinking fountain,’’

said Ms Ellis.

“We want to build better bus

shelters so waiting passengers

have more protection from the

weather and we want to install

a signalised pedestrian crossing

so that people can get across the

road more easily.

“We also want to move the bus

stops to the end of Norwich St so

we reduce the likelihood of people’s

driveways being blocked,’’

she said.

People have until December

2 to share their views on which

of the two options they prefer

Students win enterprise awards

• By Matt Slaughter

CASHMERE HIGH School

students have won three regional

titles for their business as part of

the Young Enterprise Scheme.

The group made up of year 13

students Josh Dalley, Luisa Birkenhake,

Wayo Whyte and Riley

Flanagan have invented and

brought to market their product

called Pivot.

This is the world’s first instant

ice strapping tape. It is strapping

tape that goes ice-cold with the

addition of water.

The team have been recently

recognised by winning one of

two regional spots to compete

for Young Enterprise Scheme’s

Company of the Year award

in Wellington on December 4.

Winning this award would mean

Pivot would gain great exposure,

said its chief executive Josh Dalley.

Pivot also won the regional

excellence award for innovation

and the regional award for enterprising

technology.

Josh said winning these awards

made all of the hard work that

went into designing the product

pay off.

“It was absolutely fantastic, a

real honour, to be honest. I suppose

it’s when you work really

hard at something for a whole

year and it’s in a big group of

people, every once in a while a

fire sort of gets lit and we feed off

each other and we managed to

do something really amazing.”

He said the team hopes to

keep growing the Pivot brand

and some of its members are

planning to study business at

university, while others will

study engineering.

“We’re looking to move on and

expand and get a real manufacturer

on board hopefully and

we’ve got some big sales channels

and opportunities with some

celebrities actually for endorsement,

said Josh.

“We’re looking to go into the

medical industry, not just the

sporting industry.”

In 2018 there were over

250,000 sports-related ACC injury

claims. The top five injuries

were different types of sprains

which could have been treated

with the Pivot tape, said Josh.

ACHIEVEMENT:

Wellington. ​

“We are working hard to revolutionise

first-aid for the world.

No longer is your first-aid kit

complete without the addition of

our product,” he said.

Southern View reported earlier

this month the other Canterbury

product up for the Company of

the Year award was also designed

by Cashmere High students and

is an eco-friendly alternative to

Hillmorton’s

surprise

second

placing

• By Matt Slaughter

A TEAM of Hillmorton High

School students have come

second at Christchurch’s

Middle School Ethics

Olympiad competition.

Two teams of five Year 7, 8

and 9 students competed at the

event, which saw 18 teams from

12 schools go head to head to

present arguments and answer

questions on contentious ethical

cases on November 13.

They had to answer questions

about an ethical case involving

giving to charities and the effectiveness

of charities. They then

respond to arguments about

parents using tracking apps to

monitor children.

Hillmorton High School head

of English Andrea Hotter said

the students had been preparing

for the competition for about

three months and were not

expecting to come second.

“I think, to be honest, they

were quite surprised at how well

they obviously did and I think

the points were quite close across

a number of the teams, she said.

“We’re very proud of them.”

Eco-friendly transport use on the rise

PEOPLE ARE using their cars less

and walking, biking or scooting

more, a survey has found.

The life in Christchurch

transport survey findings show

while travel by car is still the

most popular mode of transport

in the city, there has been an

increase in the use of alternative

ways to get around.

The survey questioned about

3500 Christchurch residents

about their travel habits and the

city’s transport network.

Said city council monitoring

and research team leader Kath

Jamieson: “The proportion of

people who say they are using

their car less now compared to

12 months ago is 27 per cent –

up from 19 per cent in 2018.”

More than 40 per cent of

respondents said they cycle more

often now than they did a year

ago while 21 per cent say they

walk more often.

Ms Jamieson said the arrival

of electric scooters in Christchurch

has also impacted the way

people move around the city.

“Nineteen per cent of

survey participants reported

that they have used a rental e-

scooter more than once a month

in the past 12 months, while

two per cent of those surveyed

said they own their own e-scooter

so it has become a popular

alternative form of transport,’’

ECO-FRIENDLY: The life in Christchurch transport survey has found more people are opting to

cycle, walk and scooter around the city. ​

Ms Jamieson said.

The number of people using

public transport has risen from

29 per cent in 2018, to 32 per

cent this year.

Ms Jamieson said the survey

showed the condition of roads

and footpaths are continuing to

trouble people.

“Fifty-one per cent of the people

surveyed said they were dissatisfied

or very dissatisfied with

the condition of Christchurch’s

roads. Ongoing patch repairs to

road, potholes and uneven road

surfaces are the main reasons

people gave for their dissatisfaction,’’

Ms Jamieson said.

The city council recently

revealed an investment case that

seeks $25-30 million funding to

improve the safety and condition

on more than 100 roads in

suburban areas of the city.

The areas proposed for

roading upgrades are New

Brighton, Richmond, Linwood,

Woolston, Spreydon, Somerfield,

Waltham, Beckenham and

Riccarton.

more than the recreational

limit of 150 per person as there are

currently no signs indicating the

rules.

However, Ministry for Primary

Industries director of fisheries

management Stuart Anderson said

signs will be put up in the estuary

in the next couple of months.

The impact of shellfish gathering

in the estuary on shellfish numbers,

birdlife, and human health

has been of growing concern for

its surrounding communities.

Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai

Trust chairman Kit Doudney

said a reduction to shellfish collection

limits in the estuary may

be the next step to improving its

health.

He will write to the Ministry for

Primary Industries to request the

daily recreational limit be lowered

from 150 to 25 per person.

It would take a minimum of one

year to lower the recreational daily

limits in the estuary, as the process

would include formal consultation

and the Government’s approval of

any changes.

Tough kids get wet and muddy

MORE THAN 5000 primary and

intermediate school pupils took

on mud pits, obstacles and tyre

runs as part of the annual MASH

Tough Kid challenge held in

South New Brighton last week.

The event first started following

earthquakes to encourage sports

participation and boost morale,

now it also helps reduce screen

time and improve mental health.

Schools from across Canterbury

got involved, with some

coming from as far as Hanmer

Springs and Windwhistle.

The 2.7km course included

waterslides, mud pits, inflatable

obstacles and tyre runs. It ran

through the forest and followed

the estuary, finishing in the

South new Brighton Domain.

Said event co-ordinator, Isaac

Sutherland: “It has been so exciting

to see the number of schools

getting involved with this event.

We have schools that have been

with us from the beginning,

schools who send the entire roll,

and new schools who have come

on board to sample what the

event has to offer.”

Said Cathedral Grammar

School teacher Kirsty Bond: “The

kids love getting out and getting

wet and muddy. The smiles on

their faces speak for themselves.”

Stedman eyes Tokyo Paralympic medals

DETERMINED: William Stedman wants medals in both track

and field at next year’s Tokyo Paralympics. ​

• By Jacob Page

HILLMORTON’S TRACK and

field star William Stedman is

eyeing medals in two disciplines

next year at the Tokyo

Paralympics.

The 19-year-old earned

bronze in the 400m T36 final

at the World Para Athletics

Championships in Dubai. He

also added a fifth place finish in

the long jump later the same day

which made him eager for double

delight in Japan.

“Next year, Tokyo 2020,

medals in the long jump and the

400m is the goal.”

The double Paralympic

bronze medallist from three

years ago in the 400m and

800m, who has cerebral palsy,

competed in the T36 100m,

400m and long jump.

He missed the final in the

100m but said he tried to

conserve energy in the heats of

his favoured 400m event.

“I went out for the first 200m

at my normal pace, just trying

to get out fast and practise for

tomorrow,” said Will.

“Then I had around 120m

to go and saw that I was ahead

so slowed down a bit, and then

slowed even more for the last

50m,” he said.

Stedman crossed the line in

54.28sec with the race won by

Australian James Turner, in a

new world record time

Stedman.

of 51.71sec. Silver went to

Evgenii Shvetsov of Russia in

53.18sec.

“It’s the second fastest time I’ve

ever run so I was pretty happy

with that,” he said.

“I didn’t quite run the first

200m quite as quick as I should

have, so that may have affected

the time slightly, but overall I

think I ran well and I’m really

SPORT

TEAM: Coach George Edwards with his main charge William

happy with the bronze medal.”

Stedman also competed in the

long jump T36 final.

He had a best jump of 5.39m

and finished fifth overall in the

competition.

Stedman has found success

with long-time coach George

Edwards who is a Canterbury

coach who he first met five years

ago.

Kirkwood Intermediate

Opportunities

At Kirkwood we are very proud of our children and their achievements.

Our pupils have many opportunities to participate in a wide range of education activities including Technology; ICT;

Music; Drama; Education Outside The Classroom; Leadership roles; Camps; Academic challenges; and Sports.

Our pupils develop a wide range of skills which helps them develop educationally, socially, emotionally and physically

during their time with us. Just a few of the opportunities our pupils have experienced this year are as follows:

Education Outside the Classroom

We visit many different places within our community such as Canterbury Museum,

Riccarton House and the Art Gallery. We also offer class camps for our Year 7 and

Year 8 pupils. This year our Year 7’s camped at Purau Bay where they experienced

canoeing, abseiling and camping skills, along with getting to know their class and

developing friendships.

Sport at Kirkwood Intermediate

We participate in a large variety of sports including: Netball, Football, Cross Country,

Skiing, Swimming, Rugby, Basketball, Waterpolo, Touch Rugby, Korf Ball, Table

Tennis, Badminton, Mountain Biking, Athletics and Gymnastics. We also compete in

the Canterbury Association of Intermediate and Middle Schooling competitions.

Our school is well known for the courtesy, co-operation and sportsmanship of our

teams and we value this highly.

Some of the highlights this year are as follows:

Tuesday Sport - Our A Football

team came second in their

competition.

Indoor Tournament - We took

two basketball teams, two Volleyball

teams and five Badminton teams.

Many of our pupils have been

selected to represent Canterbury

and/or have been selected for the

Nationals in various sports which

makes our school proud.

Wellington camp

This year the Year 8 students attended a school camp in Wellington.

Going on camp was a wonderful experience for the Year 8 students and

they made memories to last a lifetime.

We spent four days in Wellington and the timetable was packed with activities that

related to our school curriculum. We flew to Wellington by plane and spent our first

afternoon at the Beehive, where we had a tour and even had the chance to see

Parliament in session! Following that was a visit to National Library of New Zealand

where we saw the Treaty of Waitangi, the Declaration of Independence and the

Women’s Suffrage Petition.

Our next day began with the filming of a live TV show at Capital E. Our students

took on every role from Director to Sound Technician to News Anchor and worked

together to get the show done. We spent the rest of the day at the Wellington

Museum and Te Papa in the care of two fantastic educators. After dinner, we took an

evening stroll down the water front to Ferg’s Rock where we did some rock-climbing.

On the third day, we walked through the

Wellington Botanical Gardens to get to

Zealandia – a predator-free native bird

sanctuary in the Karori Valley. It was

incredible to see Kaka, Saddlebacks,

Takahe and even Tuatara up close. This

visit related closely to our Term Four

Science topic – New Zealand Birds. In

the afternoon we went to the Wellington

Zoo and had a tour. It was interesting to

compare the lives of animals in the Zoo

with those in the Sanctuary.

Our final day was mostly a travel day as

we took the ferry to Picton and then the

train back to Christchurch. We had a

wonderful time in Wellington. It was so

special to make such amazing memories

with our school friends before we all

leave to high school next year.

Written by Room 12

School Production

Every second year we produce a school performance for all interested pupils.

Our next School Production will be in 2021.

Technology

Our on-site technology centre provides our pupils

with a range of creative learning experiences in

different areas: Foods, Electronics, Robotics and

Materials (metal, wood, fabric and plastic). Our

pupils have created a large variety of work this

year. We also participate in Robofest, Future in

Tech programmes, EPro8 and 3D printing.

Programmes focus on Planning for Practice, Brief

Development and Outcome Evaluation.

Don’t forget, there are still some places available for

Year 7 and Year 8 for 2020.

Please visit our website www.kirkwood.school.nz for

information and to download an enrolment form or

Shops bursting with

festive gift ideas

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making up the

Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you haven’t already done so.

Finding those special gifts and stocking fillers as

well as the Christmas treats for the table is so easy at

our city’s malls and shopping centres, where the shops

are bursting with festive merchandise.

Every woman likes to receive body pampering

gifts, and there is a huge selection of these priced

to suit all budgets at the many pharmacies and gift

shops around the city. Perfume is another favourite

and again there is a wide selection to choose from,

ranging from exciting new releases to the well-known

fragrances that have stood the test of time. Lingerie,

jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares and decor

items – there’s no end to the ideas for the women on

the list.

The men are equally well catered for, from the

sophisticated metro-male boyfriends, to the car-crazy

brothers and the DIY enthusiast and keen gardener

husbands and dads. Choose from clothing, books,

tools, personal grooming items and gadgets to put a

smile on their face on Christmas morning.

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families more joy

than seeing the excitement of the children opening

their presents. Whether they are delivered by Santa

or snuck under the tree by mum and dad, the cuddly

toys, games, dolls and building blocks, the candy

canes, toy trucks and pretty dresses currently filling

the shops will bring squeals of sheer happiness from

the smallest family members.

The tweens and teens usually have their own ideas

about what they want for Christmas, so the gift cards

offered by a wide range of retailers are the perfect way

to please.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Open Day

november 30th 2019

FINALLY, our “new build” is complete and we’d love to personally

show you all around on our OPEN DAY, which is fast approaching.

We are very proud of what we have achieved,

something that hasn’t been seen in small

animal practice before - completely separate

cat and dog reception, consulting, surgical

and ICU treatment areas.

This new edition has been seven years in

the making - a lot of time and energy has

been dedicated to this project as well as

decisions to be made on a daily basis. We

bought the old house next to the clinic in

2012 anticipating we would expand one day.

It was so exciting to finally see foundations

being laid.

grow it, but we have. We now we have a

staff of 27, a team of eight veterinarians with

different skill sets and interests - something

we are very proud of and have tried hard to

achieve. We want our clients to have all their

needs met, and those of their precious pets,

all under one roof.

Old house converted to new extension.

Demolition time.

To go back 20 years ….. In 1999 we took over

the reins of Rozens Vet Clinic ( which was an

old house situated in our carpark). We have

very fond memories of our early days there

and we were a small yet enthusiastic staff

of six back then. Our small garage doubled

as a cattery, our carpark was flooded most

of winter and inhabited by Mallards, X-rays

were manually developed in the toilet and

often we were so busy cages were stacked

on top of each other in the surgical area.

Our young sons, Connor and Dylan, often

watched their mum and dad perform

surgeries, cuddling and playing with kittens

in the small staffroom. They were good times

and we got to know some terrific, animal

mad clients, who are still with us 20 years on.

The Practice we work out of now was built

in 2008 and never thought we would out

Smartflow patient monitoring.

Cat ICU and treatment area.

Aside from the separate cat wing, our new

280 square metre addition will feature

space for rehabilitation and physiotherapy,

a state off the art theatre and surgical wing

for referral surgeries, a double dental room,

another feline ward, large ultrasonography

room and extra kennelling for about 20 dogs

plus storage galore.

We are very proud to now be able to offer

Referral Surgery at McMaster & Heap Vets. Dr

Helen Milner has now joined the team who

is an Australian and New Zealand Registered

Specialist in Small Animal Surgery. She will

be able to offer a wide array of soft tissue,

orthopaedic and neurological surgeries.

ORIJEN and ACANA

are proud to support

their hospital and NEW cat

only treatment extension.

are available in the

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

We are also very fortunate to have the

services of Dr Richard Lucy who does

all the Echocardiography, Endoscopy

and Abdominal and Musculoskeletal

Ultrasonography in the Practice. Richard

has also put pacemakers in dogs, performs

our spinal taps and can also interpret MRI’s

and CT scans. He’s consulted a lot by us all.

Richard and Helens ethics, empathy, genuine

love of all animals, professional style and

incredibly high skill level fits with our aim of

becoming a “Centre of Excellence”.

Our other vets are also skilled up in areas

of interest and passion to them - Steve

with Ophthalmology, Dentistry and

Reconstructive Surgery, Sara enjoying

Dermatology and Exotics, Olivia a whiz at

all tricky Dentistry, Kirsty is very competent

in Soft Tissue Surgery, Chemotherapy and

Transfusion Medicine and Catherine is a

fantastic Medicine and Intensive Care expert

as well as performing Ultrasounds whenever

Richard is away. Me, I’m a jack of all trades,

doing a little of everything but my passion

lies with consulting and meeting new pets

and people, radiography and surgery.

Michele and steve in the cattery.

In the past 20 years we have learnt heaps

about running a successful business and

working together as a team. One of our goals

is to lead by example and empower our staff

to be their best, enjoy what they are good

at and love coming to work for us every day.

The right people, with the right set of skills

and attitude, are the key to our success.

The NZL Veterinary industry is rapidly

changing with many Practices being bought

by Corporate Entities and amalgamating with

practices. The need to keep up, diversify,

provide flexibility and options for people

and find your niche area is our future aim.

We will never stand still and be complacent.

We will listen to our clients and staff and see

what they want from us going forward in the

future.

Cat clinic entrance.

Theatre preparation & surgical scrub area.

We have also moved fast with regards to

technology. I’m not really a starter for change

but Steve persisted and eventually had me

sold on our new veterinary software system,

EzyVet and our new patient monitoring and

billing system, Smartflow. We are virtually

paperless and you’ll see our nurses walking

around with iPads updating flowsheets and

monitoring anaesthetics. Now I couldn’t

go back. This system is so accurate, very

professional and way more efficient.

I hope McMaster & Heap will stand the test

of time, cementing itself in Christchurch, as a

hospital who pride themselves on excellence,

expertise, quality patient care and full

commitment to our people and their pets.

We would love to see you on Saturday

30th November between 12-3pm for a look

around at where your special furries stay

when they are with us and enjoy a coffee,

sausage sizzle and get advice or just enjoy

a chat from our super staff and industry

representatives who will be present on the

day also. There will also be cat and dog

goodie bags, raffles and discount vouchers

on some foods.

Hope to see you real soon.
