Motorists

ignoring

stop signs

concerns

resident

• By Matt Slaughter

LAWRY WOOTTON often

sees motorists running the stop

signs at the end of his street –

sometimes at speed.

The resident of Matlock St,

Woolston, says measures need to

be taken to make the stop signs at

the intersection of his street and

Randolph St safer.

The city council says this is not

a priority.

Said Mr Wootton: “We’ve had

a few accidents down the corner,

two major ones, actually, where

somebody had to be cut out of a

car a couple of years or so ago and

there was another car that went

through a house on the corner,

where children are.”

When these crashes happened

there was a give way at the end of

the street and this was replaced

with stop signs but these have been

ineffective, said Mr Wootton.

“I can see quite clearly from

my house the stop signs . . . I

see on an average, it would be a

high 92 per cent of cars, they just

amble through stop signs, only a

handful actually stop,” he said.

Group formed to prevent crime

• By Matt Slaughter

A COMMUNITY watch group

has been set up to reduce youth

disorder and crime in Rowley

and Hoon Hay.

It will also aim to support

troubled youth and encourage

them to make good decisions.

Rowley resident and mother

of six Susana Muamua set up

the group now consisting of 21

members.

A meeting was held on

Thursday at Rowley Community

Centre, with residents, Constable

Rick Groen and Wigram MP

Megan Woods to discuss how

the community can help police

reduce crime and disorder in

Hoon Hay.

Five police recently started

patrolling Rowley and Hoon Hay

more frequently.

Mrs Muamua said members

of the community watch group

will aim to address bad youth

behaviour before it turns into

crime and will work with other

community patrol groups.

“These youths have done wrong

but what we need to do as adults

is to obviously find out who they

are. They need to be responsible

and take responsibility for their

actions and understand that what

they’re doing is wrong and they

need support.

“It’s just a small group of people

who are doing wrong but for

me, I’m not a person that would

like to approach this in an angry

manner,” she said.

The community watch group’s

members have already started

looking out for youth in Rowley

and Hoon Hay, said Mrs Muamua.

She said this has involved “volunteering

a few hours of your

time to just go out there, go for

a walk around . . . and also just

see if everything’s okay, check

on the parks, the shops, keep an

eye out. We’re not taking matters

into our own hands but we’re

trying to help and prevent things

happening and also assist the

police as well.

In Brief

PIPE UPGRADES

The water submain pipes on

Sydney St between Simeon St and

Selwyn St are being replaced. The

work started late last month and

should be finished by February 21.

This is part of the city council’s

Annual Renewals Project.

GRASS KEPT SHORT

The grass at Westmorland East

Valley Reserve has been cut. The

length of the grass was raised as a

concern last year and city council

staff have kept it short so far this

year. In a report to the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community Board,

staff said this will continue to be a

priority throughout summer and

spring and remain on a regular

maintenance schedule.

COMMUNITY MARKET

The second Lalaga Night Market

is planned to be held on February

14 at Te Komanawa Rowley

Avenue School. The first market

was led by Rowley Resource

Centre on December 6 and

offered a variety of food, craft

stalls, entertainment and a chop

suey bake-off.

PATHWAY REPAIRED

The pathway by the changing

sheds at Beckenham Park

has been repaired. This was

previously damaged and raised

as a concern to city council staff,

which led to the repairs.

Free refills

to combat

plastic waste

PIONEER Recreation & Sport

Centre is amongst the Canterbury

businesses aiming to cut down

plastic pollution by providing free

water bottle refills.

Pioneer, Graham Condon,

Taiora QEII and Jellie Park recreation

and sport centres, have joined

the network of RefillNZ stations.

RefillNZ is a non-profit organisation

that enlists hospitality

outlets around the country

to allow visitors to fill up their

reusable water bottles from the

tap for free.

It provides a poster and stickers

to participating businesses

letting people know that water

refilling is available on site. The

network also provides information

about the location of public

drinking fountains.

RefillNZ founder Jill Ford

said 66 cafes, hotels, vineyards,

i-sites and other hospitality

businesses are now involved in

the initiative across Canterbury,

including The Store in Tai Tapu,

South Brighton Holiday Park, and

Laneway Espresso on Durham St.

Three campaigners are working

for RefillNZ to introduce

new outlets to the scheme with

a goal of signing up 150 sites

around the region this year.

State of the art materials used at school

CATHOLIC Cathedral College’s

new office, administration and

classroom building is being

constructed using resilient,

sustainable systems, with timber

at its core.

Cross laminated timber,

known as CLT, forms the threestorey

$5.6 million building’s

structural framework and this is

just the beginning.

Catholic Cathedral College is

an integrated Catholic co-educational

secondary school. It was

founded in 1987 but its origins

go back more than 150 years.

The college is an amalgamation

of two schools – Sacred Heart

College for girls and Xavier College

for boys and today has a roll

of 460.

Catholic Education Office

manager Mike Nolan said the

urgent message of Pope Francis

relates to the need to care for our

common home.

“Cross laminated timber

brings a huge advantage to the

environment through efficient

application of the world’s most

sustainable, renewable, building

resource – wood. The primary

environmental benefit of this

type of construction, over a

more conventional steel and

concrete solution, is the reduced

greenhouse emissions associated

with the construction materials,”

he said.

CONSTRUCTION: Catholic Education Office manager Mike

Nolan and Catholic Cathedral College principal Tony Shaw in

front of a new cross-laminated timber school building being

constructed. ​

Timber construction materials

have lower embodied carbon

than traditional construction

materials, which is a measure

of the sum of all the emissions

generated during the manufacture

of the building products

and materials used in the new

building.

Wood takes in carbon dioxide

straight from the atmosphere

as the trees grow, resulting in a

small carbon footprint, whereas

steel and concrete have high

embodied carbon that cannot be

offset.

Said Mr Nolan: “Figures we

have received for a hypothetical

similar building using steel and

concrete on the level one and

level two floors, shows a net

increase of approximately 334

tonnes of carbon compared with

cross-laminate timber. Using

wood means a negative total

carbon footprint of 160 tonnes,

while steel and concrete would

add 174 tonnes to the environment.

“In simple terms it equates to

taking 110 standard cars off the

road for one year,” he said.

Work commenced on the new

WSP-designed building in July

and is expected to take a year

to construct. The building will

include a new administration,

reception, offices and staffroom

on the ground floor; four teaching

spaces and offices on the first

floor and the same on the second

floor.

The building will also feature

a heat recovery mechanical

ventilation system, low energy

lighting and elevator, and a high

rated thermal envelope reducing

the energy use of the building

when in operation.

Timber, in this application,

provides a resilient structural

solution, that is expected to sustain

minimal structural damage

following a major earthquake,

further adding to its sustainability.

“While the use of timber

in mid-rise commercial/

educational buildings is well

established in Europe, it is an

emerging technology type in

New Zealand, and we are excited

about timber’s resilience and

efficiency,” Mr Nolan said.

I've been running a bespoke software development company in

Christchurch since the end of 2018. One of my biggest struggles has always

been to find reliable and talented developers to help me with projects

when things get busy. I originally reached out to the team at Vision

College to do some mentoring. I mentioned my struggles and they put me

in contact with one of their students, Declan.

Declan has been such a help, his ability to be productive right

away and the ease in which he picked up new concepts was

impressive. It really is a testament to the fact that vision

college isn't just teaching specific technologies and theory,

but rather empowering their students to become lifelong

learners. In the software development industry, you never

stop learning. There is always something new and better,

and Declan has really proven himself more than capable of

keeping up. I look forward to a long term relationship with

Vision College and am already talking to another student

there to help more.

Call to lower speeds

•From page 1

Mr Wootton has seen vehicles

drive along Matlock St, where

the speed limit is 50km/h, at

70km/h. He said the street is

narrow and this is putting the

lives of pedestrians at risk,

including Linwood College

students, elderly people and

mothers with young children

travelling to kindergartens in the

area.

“It’s a very, very dangerous

situation on that corner,” said

Mr Wootton.

However, a city council

spokesperson said it has only

received two complaints about

cars speeding along Matlock St

in the last year and there have

been no crashes reported in this

time period.

Mr Wootton has a list of solutions

he thinks would make the

stop signs at the end of Matlock

St safer and he wants these to be

considered before someone is

injured or killed.

These solutions include

painting road markings along

the street which give drivers

better warning that the stop

signs are looming, lowering the

speed limit to either 40km/h or

30km/h, installing speed bumps

or speed cameras, or police

monitoring speeds in the area

CONCERNED: Lawry Wootton often sees cars running the

stop signs at the intersection of Matlock and Randolph Sts,

Woolston.

more often.

Said a city council

spokesperson: “Traffic calming

measures such as speed bumps

could be installed at the Matlock

St/Randolph St intersection, but

currently they would not rank as

a high priority compared

to locations with higher crash

rates. Lowering the speed limit

could be considered in the

future.”

Cycle ride fundraiser

ends successfully in Bluff

• By Matt Slaughter

WILLIAM HICKFORD and

Holly Ffowcs Williams have

pedalled the length of New

Zealand to raise $8560 for

people with dementia and

Alzheimer’s disease.

William, 17, cycled about

3000km from Cape Reinga to

Bluff between December 28 and

January 17, with Holly joining

him on the South Island leg of the

ride and finishing one day later.

Former Cashmere High

School student William was

inspired to complete the ride

to help people like his grandfather

Roy Pemberton, who has

dementia and also cycled the

length of New Zealand for charity

about seven years ago.

William and his bike got

through the ride without issue.

“Bike-wise, absolutely nothing

went wrong and then pretty

much the same with my body, I

had no problems the whole way

down,” he said.

The highlight of William’s

journey was riding over the

Haast Pass but there was no

better feeling for him than

finishing.

“I was just so relieved not having

to wake up the next day and

get on my bike.”

William said his family are “all

super proud” of him for what he

has achieved and his grandfather

is “just a bit jealous that he wasn’t

allowed to come with me.”

Holly, who also went to Cashmere,

said the South Island leg

took a physical and mental toll.

She stopped for physio on her

knees in Wanaka but powered

through to finish the ride.

She said crossing the finish

line was a great feeling but the

reality has not sunk in yet.

“The scenery for the last two

days was very boring, I would

never do it again.”

William and Holly’s next

goal is to reach their $10,000

fundraising target.

Webley earns US scholarship

• By Jacob Page

FORMER CASHMERE High

School student Tom Webley

has earned a four-year division

one scholarship to Hartford

University, in Connecticut.

The 18-year-old is the first

basketballer from the school to

earn the honour.

Webley returned from a visit at

the college campus last week and

said he immediately liked it.

“I was happy it was all over, it

was a long process and you’re not

sure where you are going to go.

“I went there with my Dad to

check it out and after the first

day I was pretty confident I was

going to sign there.”

Webley will study business.

He was a standout big man for

Cashmere during his four years

with the team and will link-up

with his new team in August, in

time for the college season.

The 2.09m centre was a major

contributor to Cashmere earning

fourth at the nationals in Palmerston

North, last October which

was their best ever finish.

Webley averaged more than 30

points a game and was a major

force in the paint.

He also scored 51 points in the

quarter-final against Tauranga

Boys’ College where he added

17 rebounds and seven assists

which helped him make the

tournament team.

Webley said he had offers from

multiple schools but he was

impressed with Hartford and

the way they committed to him

straight away,

“They made me an offer on the

first phone call and then meeting

coach Gallagher was great.

“I met my teammates and I’ve

watched some of their trainings

and I liked how the coach (John

Gallagher) interacted with the

guys plus it’s one of the top business

schools in the country.”

DOMINANT:

Tom Webley

in action

during his

four-year

tenure with

Cashmere

High School.

Right –

Webley and

Hartford

Hawks

coach John

Gallagher.

Webley said the confidence he

gained as a player while playing

at Cashmere made this happen.

“I knew I was a good player

but I didn’t have the confidence

to take my game to the next level

but that changed last year,” he

said.

“It was self-belief.”

He will make the move in

either May or August.

Cashmere coach Paul Conner

said Hartford would be a good fit

for him.

“It looks like he will get plenty

of court time and he will play for

a coach who is keen to use big

centres,” Conner said.

He said Webley’s progression

over the past 15 months was “off

the charts” and he expected him

to only get better.

“In year 12 he just didn’t have

the physical presence he had last

year.

“There is no end to how far

someone like Tom could go in

the sport.

“If you put another 15 to 20kg

on his frame over the next wee

while, then he will be one heck

of a player,” he said.

Personal bests

for wheelchair

racer in Australia

• By Jacob Page

CASHMERE HIGH School

wheelchair racer Montana Brown

has completed a successful two

weeks competing in Australia.

Brown competed in the Summer

Down Under Wheelchair

Racing Series in Canberra and

Australia Day 10km road race in

Sydney

She competed in four events

over two nights in Canberra, producing

three personal best times

in all of her races.

She produced a 6sec personal

best in the 200m, crossing the

line in 44.49 to finish sixth in the

final.

In the prelims of the 400m she

took 20sec off her top time in

finishing in 1min 40.06sec but

missed out on the finals.

Brown almost broke the three

minute barrier in the 800m

finishing in 3min 02.31sec which

was 20sec better than her previous

fastest time to finish 11th overall.

She then took more than a

minute off her best 1500m time

to finish in 5min 43.55sec during

her preliminary race, however, she

missed the final.

A crash in the 10km road race

meant she was unable to finish the

race. •More sport, page 8

didn’t drop a set en route

to winning the singles, men’s

doubles and mixed doubles titles

in the 70 and over grade at the

tournament in Hamilton. Last

year Meredith won the singles

title and has previously won a

singles and doubles title in the 65

and over grade. However, this is

the first time he has won all three

titles at one event.

“It doesn’t happen very often.

Peter Hampton is a local

Christchurch guy and he’s probably

done it multiple times, but

other than him it doesn’t happen

very often,” said Meredith.

Tennis isn’t the only sport Meredith

has won national titles in.

He is best known for his 35-year

career in cue sports, which included

four snooker and a record

15 national billiards titles.

In the singles, Meredith defeated

fourth seed Erwin Notter

6-2, 6-3 in the final. His toughest

battle came in his opening round

match which he won 7-6, 6-0. He

said he struggled in the opening

close to 12 months.

Meredith travelled to the

nationals with fellow Cashmere

players Max Morrison and John

Dunbier – the trio are part of a

group which hit together every

Tasty Bites

Kebabs to make your mouth water

Grilled Chilean Beef Kebabs

with Chimichurri Sauce and

Coriander Rice is an easy,

flavourful any-day meal.

Substitute button mushrooms

for the beef for a vege

alternative. If going low-carb,

use cauliflower rice and if

coriander isn’t your thing then

serve with your favourite

sauce and rice side-dish

Grilled Chilean Beef Kebabs

with Chimichurri Sauce and

Coriander Rice

Makes 8 kebabs

Ingredients

1kg beef – tenderloin, ribeye

or sirloin, cut into 4cm cubes

(or substitute 500g button

mushrooms)

2 Tbsp oil

2 Tbsp lime juice, plus zest of one

lime

2 garlic cloves – finely minced

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp dried oregano or thyme

1 tsp cumin

1½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

Skewer additions: cherry

tomatoes, onion

Chimichurri Sauce

1 bunch coriander

½ cup olive oil

2 Tbsp lime juice

1 jalapeno (use less, or more if

you like)

½ cup chopped onion

1 garlic clove

½ tsp smoked paprika

½ tsp salt

Coriander Rice

2 cups water

1 cup rice, rinsed

pinch salt

¼ cup coriander- chopped

3 spring onions – chopped

1 lime

Garnish: lime wedges

Directions

Soak eight 25cm wooden skewers

in warm water.

Cut the beef into cubes and

place in a zip lock bag or in a

medium bowl.

Mix oil, lime juice and zest,

garlic, spices, salt and pepper in a

small bowl. Pour over the beef and

seal the bag, shaking and mixing

so all the beef is coated. Set aside.

Pre-heat a hotplate, BBQ or your

favourite skillet if it’s large enough.

In a medium pot, add water and

rice, bring to a boil. Cover, simmer

on low heat for 20min.

In the meantime, make the

chimichurri. Place all the ingredients

in a food processor, and

pulse repeatedly (10-15 times)

until the coriander and onion are

all minced well. It need not be

smooth, but more like the consistency

of pesto. Place in a small

bowl. Set aside.

Make the skewers alternating

beef, cherry tomato, onion slice,

then repeat until skewer is full.

3-4 pieces of beef on each skewer.

Grill the skewers over medium

high heat, rotating until meat

is nicely charred and cooked to

desired done-ness.

Place rice in a bowl, squeeze

with lime, and scatter the

coriander and green onions over

the top. Serve immediately.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

SOUTHERN VIEW

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

HIP PAIN

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment you

should know that it will work for you. Call

them before 15 February and save $50.00

on that treatment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door

and there is ample parking. To enquire about joint pain treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

REAL ESTATE

Heavenly hideaway!

36a Heberden Avenue, Sumner

Auction: Thursday, 13 February 2020 (Unless Sold Prior)

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 2 car-garage

2 off-street carparks | Listing Number SM0300

Tucked away and private from the

road, this fabulous character home will

both delight and surprise.

Beautifully presented and renovated

the home is ready and waiting for a lucky

new owner.

Gorgeous freshly polished timber

floors throughout the living and dining

add a sense of warmth and with all day

sun the home is instantly inviting.

Both living spaces open to private

sheltered decks capturing both the

morning and late sun and providing an

idyllic spot for entertaining or simply

relaxing with a good book.

While modernised throughout, the

home retains the charm of the 1950’s era

with the wooden windows all double

glazed and there is current log burner

and floor mounted heat pump.

Outside is a gardener’s dream, easy

care but with established fruit and citrus

trees and raised vegetable plots and a

good sized garden shed. There is also

the added bonus of two garages with

automatic garage doors, one complete

with a new bathroom and separate

entrance. Great off street parking

provided through an automatic gate.

Properties of this quality are highly

sought in Sumner and this home enjoys

the enviable late sun, dual entry and

privacy, making it the ideal spot to call

home.

My motivated owners have loved their

many years here but a new adventure

awaits, so the home will be sold. Act

now!

Who we are

Allied Press Limited employs over 450 people on a permanent

basis across its 15 sites in the South Island. We operate across

multiple media platforms (print, online, digital) delivering news,

information and entertainment through our various regional

and city publications, including printing and publishing of

newspapers from our print centre in Dunedin and a commercial

print facility in Alexandra.

The role

Reporting to the Operations Manager, the main purpose of

the position is to ensure smooth running of our newspaper,

commercial publication and facility maintenance.

Some of the key accountabilities include:

• Production remains uninterrupted.

• Production equipment availability is maximised.

• Preventative maintenance is prioritised to ensure minimal

downtime.

The business has just invested in a major upgrade to the

electrical/electronic systems on the printing press, scheduled to

commence in the New Year. This presents the ideal opportunity

to learn from the installation and commissioning engineers to

enable the successful candidate to hit the ground running.

Your skills and experience

We are looking for a registered Electrician ideally from an

Industrial background holding a current practising licence. The

ideal candidate would be competent and confident in using

computers and experienced in PLC’s, Analogue/Digital control

and AC/DC motor drive systems. Although not essential,

knowledge of Goss Press and Ferag mailroom will be a bonus.

Further details

This is a full-time permanent position working the day shift from

Monday to Friday, with rostered ‘On call’.

As well as a competitive salary, we offer you a great team

environment, minimal commute time, being based within

Dunedin city, professional development opportunities, job

security and opportunity to grow. Training and support will be

provided for the successful applicant.

If you think this role is for you, please apply by way of CV and

a covering letter. Informal inquiries about the role are welcome

and should be directed to raja.chakrabarti@alliedpress.co.nz
