360,000km – Ten now destined for the crusher

OUT WITH THE OLD: Christchurch North Community Patrol chairman Sam Hall says it is time for patrol car Ten to be replaced

after 360,000km patrolling the streets.


$7000 has been spent on keeping

it running.

The Honda CRV was once the

10th car in the fleet, hence the

name, but now, she has reached

the end of her life.

Said patrol chairman Sam

Hall: “She’s a bit noisy, she’s a

bit rattly, she’s safe, but we are

very careful about the bumps

we go over.”

It was decided the well-used

vehicle had to go when the patrol

could no longer patch

her up, and the bills got too


The mechanic who has

been servicing the car for years

told Mr Hall it would cost a

couple of thousand dollars in

repairs to renew the warrant,

which is due at the end of the


“He told me: I’ve done all I

can, but it won’t pass the next

warrant,” Mr Hall said.

liquor store



• By Claire Booker

IT WAS a win for the Fendalton

community when the application

for a liquor store on Memorial

Ave was withdrawn.

A record-breaking 207 objections

were submitted to the city

council over the proposed bottle

shop on Memorial Ave.

Last week, the applicant

Manpreet Kaur, who also owns

Sockburn Bottle-O, withdrew

the application for an off-licence

consent for the store after an

independent adviser told her the

process would be a “waste of time

and money.”

Said Mrs Kaur: “We were

expecting objections, but not that

many. We respect the community,

if they do not want it, we don’t

want to annoy them.”

Mrs Kaur said at the end of the

day, it is just a business, and there

would be no hard feelings.

“If people don’t like it, it’s not a

good idea for us to go in there.

“I am happy people do look

after their community,” she said.

Fendalton resident and

neighbour of the proposed shop,

Isobel Anderson, was “absolutely

ecstatic” the application had been

Big Showbiz shoes to fill

for Ilam’s Sarah Buchanan

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

“BIG SHOES to fill.”

That is how Ilam’s Sarah

Buchanan describes taking on

the role of Showbiz Christchurch

president following the

resignation of Markham Lee

about three weeks ago.

Having a strong association

with the company since 1989,

Mrs Buchanan said taking

on the role is an exciting new


Mr Lee has served as president

of Showbiz on and off since 1990

with his association with Showbiz

beginning in 1973 at age 11

when he performed in Oliver!

But it isn’t the only major

change to the strong musical

theatre company – which has

been operating since 1938.

Paul Christ will take over as

general manager in January following

Michael Bayly finishing

in the role in mid-September.

Mr Bayly, who served as

general manager since May

2015, has gone onto become the

national on-premise manager at

Cassels Brewing Co.

Mr Christ has a wealth of

experience in musical theatre

having supervised, conducted

and directed productions for

Disney Theatrical Productions,

Cameron Mackintosh and Vienna

State Opera.

He said Showbiz offers the

perfect opportunity to draw on

his professional musical theatre

experience along with his work

in commercial

and not-forprofit

art sectors.

“I have

travelled extensively

for a

large part of my

Paul Christ

career . . . it was

time to come

home and reconnect with family

and put to use that industry

experience to the advantage of

the New Zealand performing

arts sector.”

Mrs Buchanan has a longstanding

relationship with

Showbiz having served as vicepresident

for the past five years

and been on the board since 2010.

She said her role as president

will be made easy due to having

a “marvellous” team and board

she has been able to delegate

tasks to take the pressure off.

BIG STEP: Sarah Buchanan will take over

the reins as the new president for Showbiz

Christchurch. ​

“We are really lucky we have

all these exciting shows coming

through from the West End

and we are able to stage them

here which is fantastic,” Mrs

Buchanan said.

In September, Showbiz announced

a dazzling season to be

staged at the Isaac Theatre Royal

next year starting off with My

Fair Lady from April 3.

In June, the music of Chess

will be staged in

concert with the

Christchurch Symphony


The final show of

the year to be staged

will be Buddy – The

Buddy Holly Story

featuring the music

of American musician

and singersongwriter



Mrs Buchanan

said the talent in the

city is phenomenal

and Showbiz has

fantastic creatives

who know how to

put on a show.

She has led an

exciting career

both on and off the

stage including touring as a personal

dresser with English singer

Elaine Paige twice.

Although she has taken on a

major role at the company, Mrs

Buchanan’s days in the spotlight

are far from over.

She will play the Queen

of Transylvania and perform

in the ensemble as part of My

Fair Lady.

In Brief


Renewal of the sewers and laterals

in Canon St between Barbadoes

and Geraldine Sts was set to begin

yesterday. A reduced speed limit

will be in place near the site,

and there may be restrictions to

property access. Work is expected

to be complete by December 24.


The opening of Hills Rd near QE

II Drive will be further delayed

due to technical issues with the

machinery used to seal the road.

It was expected to open yesterday,

but now it is expected to open in

early December.


The paddling pools at Avebury

and Abberley Parks are now open.

Parents are reminded there are

no lifeguards at these pools, so

children must be supervised at

all times. Both pools will be open

until early March.


Seventeen young people and the

Canterbury University athletics

club received grants from the


Community Board last week.

The board granted $3940 towards

sports trips, academic exchanges

and a Scout jamboree to be held

in Hamilton in December.

for patrol car

• From page 1

The main issues with the vehicle

are rust, from years of being used

for off-road driving following the

earthquakes, and in floods.

“We will find an option that will

provide the most money to put

towards a new vehicle. Our options

are selling it as is where is, parts, or

sending it to the wreckers,” Mr Hall


The patrol has nearly raised

enough to upgrade to a Suzuki Vitara

– the standard vehicle for community

patrols across the country

– but it has started a givealittle page

to raise the remaining $5000.

In recent years, radiator troubles

had caused the patrol to be called

off, and Mr Hall said they have

been getting more callouts from

police which they need to attend.

Mr Hall said a highlight of the

regular patrol meetings is hearing

the car is still running but said it

has just done its dash.

“We will be a little bit sad to see

it go, it will be the end of an era,

but it will mark the start of a new

era of looking out for the community.

It’s been a hard 360,000km,”

Mr Hall said.

Healthy trees to be chopped for drain renewal

• By Claire Booker

A DRAIN which has not been

maintained since the 1960s will

be renewed next year.

But it will mean about 100

healthy trees and shelterbelts

will get the chop.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board voted on Friday to

approve the removal of the trees

along the Canal Reserve Drain

on Marshland Rd between

“I just didn’t think that [application

withdrawal] could ever


“It was so frightening someone

could come in and upset a whole

community. It’s just such a relief,”

she said.

Those who made submissions

against the liquor licence were

notified about the withdrawal by

the district licensing committee

on Wednesday last week.

Fendalton resident Ashley

Seaford said the result was good

news for the community and its

young people.

“From the number of submissions

clearly there was no, or

little, support for this business in

our neighbourhood,” he said.

Prior to the application being

withdrawn, the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood


Board requested the right to voice

its opposition to the planned

bottle shop at a district licensing

committee hearing.

City councillor and board

member James Gough said it was

clear the community was fundamentally

opposed to the liquor

store and said the site appeared

to be “a completely inappropriate

place for a liquor outlet.”

“This is a superb outcome, but

I think the outcome was always

going to be the same. I think

[the applicants] made a good

decision,” Cr Gough said.

Mairehau and Hawkins Rds.

City councillor and board

member Pauline Cotter said

council staff worked closely

with the community regarding

the tree removal.

Said Cr Cotter: “Nobody

wants to cut down healthy trees

unless we have to. It’s for the

greater benefit.”

About 600m south of the

Hawkins Styx river intersection

is a spawning habitat for

Lamprey, a type of jawless fish

similar to eels.

The city council will work

with NIWA, the Department of

Conservation, and local ecologists

to decide the best way to

renew the drain in this area.

The drain is to be renewed to

reduce the potential flood risk

and associated damage with the



Work is set to begin early next

year and run until 2021.

Tree removals include two

native totara trees, weeping

willows, silver birch, cypress,

cherry plum trees and magnolia,

among others.

Once the renewal is complete,

the waterway will be landscaped

with riparian planting,

including native shrubs and

larger growing native and exotic

trees where space allows.

RELIEVED: Isobel Anderson delivered thousands of flyers

alerting her neighbours of the proposed liquor store on

Memorial Ave, last week the application was withdrawn.

Two-storey health centre

approved for Memorial Ave

• By Claire Booker

A NEW health centre in Ilam

has been given the green light.

Resource consent has been

granted for the new two-storey

health centre on Memorial Ave.

Doctors, physiotherapy, podiatry,

mental health services, a

pharmacy and gift shop are earmarked

for the complex which

will be called Ilam Health.

The new centre will be 1267 sq

m in total on two levels, with 46

car parking spaces and nine cycle

parking spaces.

It is predicted the centre will

generate more than 940 vehicles

movements per day at the site on

Memorial Ave near Ilam Rd.

Ilam Health will be open 7am-

9pm seven days a week, and may

request additional consent to be

open for a 24-hour surgery in the


The medical centre will increase

from nine clinical spaces

to 16, meaning there will be six

doctors on hand.

Pegasus Health has endorsed

the clinic on the basis that population

growth in the north of the

city has put pressure on many

practices, meaning they are no

longer taking new patients.

BRAND NEW: A concept drawing of the new Ilam Health centre, which will consolidate multiple

health services on Memorial Ave. ​

“This includes Ilam Medical

Centre and has resulted in patients

having to travel further for

health care. The expansion of Ilam

Medical Centre to larger rooms

as part of Ilam Health will aid in

alleviating this issue,” a Pegasus

Health spokeswoman said.

Neighbouring residents raised

some concerns over the size of

the proposal, causing adverse effects

on the residential character

of the area, but hearings panel

commissioner Justine Ashley


“While the proposal is substantial,

it is able to be absorbed

into the mixed character of the

receiving environment, which retaining

a high-quality residential

amenity,” the commissioner’s

report said.

Pegasus health said its goal for

the future is that primary health

care services are moving in the

direction of more integration,

bringing together a number of

services within one complex.

It is expected construction will

begin on Ilam Health next year.


responds to

mall review

• By Claire Booker

THE CITY council has made a

response to the judicial review

over the proposed expansion of

Merivale Mall.

Merivale residents were shocked

and angry the resource consent

had been granted without any

form of public consultation, and

described the process as “rushed

and not needed.”

Mall owners have been granted

consent to increase the size of the

mall by 87 per cent, and build a

three-level car park and 24 twostorey

homes in the area.

But a group of residents decided

to challenge the process which

granted the non-notified consent

in a bid to get the consent revoked.

Last week, the city council issued

its response to the judicial

review in the district court.

The hearings panel, which

granted the resource consent for

the mall expansion found there

would be no adverse effects on the

community, and the expansion

would have “negligible” impact on

Papanui Rd traffic volumes.

City council head of resource

consents John Higgins said the

panel appreciated the public

concerns but was bound by the

statutory process under the

Resource Management Act.

Tough kids get wet and muddy

MORE THAN 5000 primary and

obstacles and tyre runs. It ran

through the forest and followed

the estuary, finishing in the South

School raises funds for charity

supporting children of prisoners



ethics win for

St Margaret’s

• By Claire Booker

Year 11 middle school leaders

Isabella Galvan, Jack Calder

and Oscar Bloom organised a

mufti day last term for Pillars,

an organisation started by Verna

McFelin who was left to look after

her four children alone when

her husband was sentenced to 11

years in prison.

Pillars is supported by several

schools each year, and Mrs

McFelin said the organisation

does not have the resources to

travel around schools to promote

the work they do, because the

money they have goes directly

to supporting the children who

need it.

Said Mrs McFelin of the donation:

“This will have a major

effect. It will ensure that mentors

and children are supported

where it is most needed.”

Oscar said the trio worked

hard to make sure the cause was

well-known around the secondary


HELPING OUT: Year 11 St Andrew’s College pupils Isabella

Galvan (left), year 11 dean Liz Gormack, Jack Calder and Oscar

Bloom raised more than $1250 for Pillars, which supports

children of prisoners. ​

“We wanted people to know

what they were fundraising for

and be able to buy into the amazing

work Pillars does. By the end

of the mufti day, we felt people

all around the school knew about

Pillars and that was probably

what made it such a success.

“The work [Pillars] does is so

incredible and makes a profound

difference to the families in its

care. We wanted to fundraise

for a charity that was based

in Christchurch and did stuff

that helped

Oscar said.

The pupils Verna McFelin

met with

Michelle Mathijssen, who is

the project manager based in

Christchurch for Pillars, and Oscar

said it was great to sit down

and learn more about the work

Pillars does.

“We felt that we learnt more

about people less fortunate than

ourselves who deserve dignity,

respect and opportunity,” he said.

There are 23,000 children in

New Zealand at the moment

who have parents in prison, Mrs

McFelin said those children are

9.5 times more likely to end up in

prison without good support.

“We are very grateful and

thankful that the young people

and staff at St Andrew’s College

recognise Pillars services as a

vital community need,” Mrs

College Year 9 students took

home gold medals from

Christchurch’s Middle School

Ethics Olympiad competition.

And it was only the first year

the competition has been held

in New Zealand, with previous

ones being in Australia.

The group of five students

beat Hillmorton High School

in a close finish, answering

questions on subjects including

lying, donations, tracking apps,

relationships, dog ownership, the

environment and charities.

Said Hannah Wylie: “Preparing

for the competition was slightly

tricky because we didn’t know

which one of three questions they

would ask for each case.”

The students practised every

Monday and Tuesday in their

lunch hour for more than a

month prior to the competition

and went over questions in their

term 3 school holidays.

Hannah said the students look

forward to competing in the senior

competition next year.

“It has been such a great

experience competing and

preparing for these events.”

Criterium title claimed



by Pithie of CBHS


School’s Laurence Pithie claimed

his first elite national title by

claiming the criterium title in a

sprint finish in Christchurch.

Pithie was part of a six-strong

break on the 1.1km course

around Cashel St and Oxford

Terrace, that featured his

Canterbury teammate Andrew

Bidwell, Marlborough’s Ethan

Batt, Manawatu’s Joel Yates,

Dutchman Antonie van Noppen

and Vantage New Zealand track

squad rider, Josh Scott.

They pushed clear after a crash

split the 41-strong field.

The chasing group worked hard

to close to just 7sec behind in the

race over the following 40min but

eventually ran out of time.

Bidwell and Pithie had worked

hard in the middle stages of the

race but it was Batt who made the

break in the home straight, only

to be out-kicked by Pithie, who

adds a national champion jersey

to his two rainbow jerseys won

on the track.

“It was awesome to bring it

home in front of a home crowd,”

he said.

“I am really stoked with it.

“I have to thank Andrew Bidwell.

If it wasn’t for him, I would

not have had the energy at the

end. He towed me around all day.

It was great teamwork.”

In spite of leading for four laps

and setting the pace, Pithie was

pleased with his tactics.

“I played it pretty cagey,” he

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

Go Karting at Christchurch’s

Premier Indoor Track

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.

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.

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


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.

Summerset at Wigram serviced apartment resident, Alma with daughter Maree

Serviced apartments,

the best of both worlds

Discover how Summerset living allows

Alma to stay active and thrive


22 Tuesday November 26 2019

Latest Canterbury news at


“ Since Mum’s been here,

she’s just blossomed”

From growing up in a big family in Christchurch to being happily married for 63 years, Alma’s had

plenty of company throughout her whole life.

So, when the option to move to a Summerset serviced apartment came up, Alma and daughter

Maree were naturally a little nervous it might be a bit on the quiet side for her. But, since the move,

they’ve discovered it’s been anything but quiet.

“I don’t think you’d ever need to feel lonely here. It’s just like a big family and there’s always

something going on,” remarks Alma.

When she first arrived at her serviced apartment, Alma had her husband by her side. Sadly, he

passed away shortly after due to on-going health issues. “I thought it might take her a little while to

deal with the loss of dad and… the new surroundings, but it was quite amazing really how quickly

she settled, and I think that was down to the staff,” recalls daughter Maree.

Alma with Maree as a toddler

While the move was a big decision, the whole family feel that Alma has “blossomed” since and

has become more herself again.

“ She’s involved herself in things that she hadn’t done for years, Choir. Exercising.

She’s just taken it with both hands, made friends and it’s all been just amazing.”

Maree and Alma both admit that the stigma of retirement living put them off for longer than it

needed to. “I think mum was just so delighted when she came here and realised how welcoming

and how well-run [the place was] and what care was here for her. I think it was an eye-opener, really.”

Having Alma living at home with her would have been a dream for Maree, but with the reality of

working all day, she worried her mum would be very bored. But Alma hasn’t had time for boredom

at all since moving to Summerset. “There’s so much to keep you occupied. Music. Happy Hour, little

outings. It’s a lovely place to be.”

Alma also fills her time with a cheeky bit of cleaning, even though she doesn’t need to lift a finger.

“I don’t think she leaves a lot for the staff to clean, but that’s mum,” laughs Maree.

“It’s a relief for us to know that she’s taken care of. Dad would be so pleased to see she’s in a

place like this. It’s just been a godsend.”
