Fire sparks

call to cut

overgrown grass

KATRINA HORNE has been

left overjoyed after the long

search to find her missing

dog Tinka has had a happy

ending.

The little white maltese chihuahua

was found after being

missing for five weeks.

Described as a “mummy’s

girl,” in her 11 years, Tinka had

never ventured out past the

driveway of her Hornby home,

Mrs Horne said.

“It was completely out of

character . . . she is quite a princess,”

she said.

But after five stressful

weeks of searching every night,

putting out mailbox flyers and

making posts on Facebook since

Christmas Eve, Tinka (short for

Tinker Bell) was found.

Dangerous

intersection

decision

delayed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PLANS TO transform the city’s

fourth most dangerous junction

into a T-intersection to reduce

crashes has been put on hold.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board has postponed

making a decision on making a

$1 million safety upgrade to the

Ilam/Riccarton/Middleton Rd

intersection.

It is after city

council staff presented

a detailed

report to the board

last week requesting

it endorsed its

preferred design of Mark Peters

restricting the use

of Middleton Rd.

This would be by changing access/egress

to left in, left out, and

changing Ilam Rd and Middleton

Rd to a T-intersection.

As of June last year, 40 crashes

with varying degree of injury had

been reported at the intersection

since 2011 making it the fourth

most dangerous in the city.

The decision to defer making

any calls on making safety

improvements follows concerns the

three newly elected board members

did not have a strong enough

understanding of the issue.

Fire fuels residents’ call to

maintain overgrown grass

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SUSPICIOUS scrub fire at

Kyle Park has added weight to

an outcry from Hornby residents

for a stronger maintenance

programme to fight overgrown

grass along the railway line.

Fire crews were called to the

park after a scrub fire measuring

10 x 40m broke out by the railway

line at 3.34pm last Saturday.

A Fire and Emergency New

Zealand spokeswoman said

while no damage was sustained

to the railway line, the fire did

involve grass along the side of

the rail track.

The week before, maintenance

of the railway line between

Hornby and Templeton –

particularly at Kyle Park was

criticised at the Greater Hornby

Residents’ Association meeting.

The potential fire risk due to

sparks from trains was raised.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board member

Mark Peters said due to the fire

risk, already nervous residents

were extremely lucky the fire was

quickly brought under control.

KiwiRail acting South Island

operations general manager

INVESTIGATION: A fire at Kyle Park by the railway line is being

treated as suspicious. ​

Mark Heissenbuttel said its contractors

spray and mulch mow

the Hornby and Templeton area

3m from the track centre on a

cyclical basis.

“We also mulch mow a 2m

strip next to the track once

between the months of October

and late December in Templeton

and Hornby as a step to mitigate

fire risk during dry summer

months,” he said.

The company contracts

arborists Treescape to carry out

maintenance.

But Mr Peters questioned if

KiwiRail was maintaining far

enough off the track and said the

entire boundary should be maintained

rather than a set distance.

“They should be looking at the

entire rail corridor to make sure

it is maintained as a responsible

landowner,” he said.

But Mr Heissenbuttel said KiwiRail

is responsible for 3700km

of rail corridor throughout the

country and vegetation management

needs to be prioritised and

carefully scheduled.

Last month, Fire and Emergency

New Zealand introduced a

prohibited fire season for the city,

Banks Peninsula, Selwyn, Hurunui

and Waimakariri districts.

It is not the first time maintenance

of overgrown grass by the

railway line has been criticised.

Last year Mr Peters slammed

the lack of maintenance adjacent

to Carmen Rd, which forms part

of SH1.

About a year ago, a Dunedinbound

train was stopped north

of Rolleston after fires broke out

beside SH1.

Mr Peters said it will no longer

be an accident if a major fire

breaks out and the overgrown

grass has been continually ignored

by the authorities.

City council’s community

parks manager Al Hardy said

staff visited the site following the

fire and have deemed it safe.

In Brief

MAJOR CYCLE ROUTE

Construction of a major cycleway

running from Templeton to

Hagley Park is set to begin soon.

City council’s transport planning

and delivery manager Lynette

Ellis said construction will begin

at Hagley Park and then progress

towards Templeton with the full

route expected to take two years

to construct.

PARK UPGRADE SOON

A major overhaul of Harrington

Park’s playground will begin this

month. A large play structure

featuring a mega tunnel slide,

nets, monkey bars, a fireman’s

pole, a climbing wall, stepping

posts and monkey bars will be

installed. A wobbly wood bee

rocker, flying fox, a birds nest

carousel, a mega swing set, a new

bike/scooter stand, new picnic

tables and 13 new trees also

features in the plan.

RICCARTON RD

A section of Riccarton Rd

will receive 60min parking

restrictions. It comes after

business Minx Hair Studio

reported to the city council

customers were having

difficulties finding short-stay

parking. The proposal is to

introduce the equivalent of two

short-stay parking spaces, within

a short walking distance of the

business.

Burnside HS 60th

celebrations a success

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CATCHING UP with old

classmates has been a highlight

for former Burnside High School

student Clive Chandler.

Mr Chandler was a key helper

for a two-day reunion marking

60 years since the school opened

recently.

First-day students who were

at the school when it opened on

February 2, 1960 celebrated the

school’s milestone last Sunday

and Monday.

About 40 former students attended

the two-day event.

Mr Chandler started as a

student at the school when it officially

opened in 1960.

The school opened in a staggered

approach with initially only

about 200 third-formers.

“It has been excellent. It has

been really nice catching up with

people I have not seen for 10-30

years,” Mr Chandler said.

He said while some people’s appearance

had changed a lot, some

people still look the same.

The celebrations have included

poetry, a speech from former

principal John Godfrey on the

school’s past successes, lunch and

dinner and tours of the school.

is here now!

Intersection safety

plan decision delayed

• From page 1

Board member Mark Peters

called for the report on the

intersection to “lay on the table”

until the board had received

another briefing by city council

staff.

Mr Peters, along with Gamal

Fouda and Andrei Moore were

elected to the board following the

October elections.

Before then, the proposal to

improve the safety of the intersection

first came to the board in

November 2018 and city council

staff briefed the board on the issue

in June last year.

“The reason I have asked for

this to lay on the table is simply

there is a heck of a lot of information

here for us to digest.

“This is a huge decision for the

suburb of Riccarton and wider

areas so we need to make sure we

get it right and get it right the first

time,” Mr Peters said.

City councillors Jimmy Chen,

Catherine Chu, board members

Debbie Mora, Helen Broughton,

Mr Fouda, Mr Moore along with

Mr Peters voted in support to put

the report on hold.

City councillor Anne Galloway

and chairman Mike Mora voted

against.

LONG TIME COMING: The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board has postponed making a decision on

making a $1 million safety upgrade to the Ilam/Riccarton/

Middleton Rd intersection. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Cr Galloway said she did not

support the amendment and felt

very disappointed the project

may not be progressed as a huge

amount of work has been put into

the report.

“This is about safety, it has been

the key focus of this project – the

safety of those using this intersection

and I am concerned and

worried that by delaying it we are

putting other people’s safety at

risk,” she said.

Cr Galloway said it had new

city councillors who have been

expected to come up to speed

with issues they have not been

part of and it is just “part of the

parcel”.

“So let’s move forward,” she said.

Mr Mora said he understood

the situation was “very difficult”

but the issue has been around a

long time.

Community governance

manager Matthew Pratt said the

earliest he could get city council

staff in to brief the board on issue

would be about February 25 –

depending on availability – with

the report to come back for a

decision on March 3.

Dog found after

5km adventure

• From page 1

It was after Mrs Horne had

received a phone call from a lady

who had seen a small white dog

on a property in Templeton.

“In my mind, I didn’t think

it was her because she had been

away so long,” she said.

Mrs Horne went out to the

same area three times to find

Tinka.

On the second night when she

was walking back to the car she

saw a flash of white and called

out before Tinka came running

to her.

The find had left Mrs Horne a

“blubbering mess on the side of

the road.”

“I was beside myself, I couldn’t

believe it was her. I think I was in

a state of shock.”

Her family was just as excited,

she said she was worried her

four-year-old and two-year-old

children would “smother” Tinka,

as they were so excited to see her.

Mrs Horne described her other

papillon chihuahua Louie, 8, as

“over the moon” to see his pal

back home.

While Tinka was away, Louie

would cry when her children

would talk about her and ask

where she was.

“It would break my heart.”

Mrs Horne said the “odds were

against” Tinka as she had suffered

a bad heart murmur since

she was born.

How did Tinka end up in Templeton?

No one will ever know.

“I wish I knew her full story,

she was starving, so skinny. She

was a bit overweight when she

left and she was so skinny and so

dirty when I found her,” she said.

But Mrs Horne said since Tinka

has been home she has been a

“hungry scavenger” living the life

and getting her weight back.

She wished to thank everyone

who helped bring Tinka back

home.

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association chairman Marc

Duff said due to the amount of

Facebook posts shared over the

little dog missing, Tinka became

“Hornby’s most famous dog.”

Schools prep for festival

TRANSFORMATION: Demolition for the last of the Branston

Intermediate School buildings is under way.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

Demolition begins

on remaining classroms

THE LAST of the former

Branston Intermediate School

buildings are being demolished.

The school, located on Amyes

Rd, was closed in 2013 following

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Work began last month and

is expected to be finished in

March.

The buildings to be

demolished are the school’s

former technology and art

block.

The site has been occupied by

the new South Hornby School

since the school became operational

in late 2017.

The Ministry deferred demolition

of the old buildings until

now as these were being used

by the neighbouring Hornby

High School as teaching spaces,

while the high school’s own

redevelopment project was being

completed.

The area where the buildings

are being demolished will be

completed with the creation of a

bike track for the school.

SCHOOL PUPILS from

Burnside Primary School are

amongst those who have been

preparing for the Grow Ō

Tautahi Christchurch Garden

Festival.

Burnside, St Marks, Heathcote

Valley, Banks Avenue, St Albans

Catholic, West Rolleston, West

Eyreton, West Melton and Diamond

Harbour Schools are taking

part in the festival, creating

display gardens that reflect their

values and surroundings.

It will be held in the Botanic

Gardens from March 20-22.

The gardens have been growing

since late last year, but extra work

was needed over the holidays.

Grow Ō Tautahi festival director

Sandi MacRae said school kids will

be on-site during the festival to

talk to visitors about their gardens

and what they represent.

“When we were planning the

Festival, we were clear it had

to reflect local people and local

ideas. It has been fantastic to get

so many local primary schools

involved to show off their gardening

skills in creations that

reflect their values.

“We’re working closely with

the schools to support their displays,

but these are all their own

creations and it’s their hard work

that has gone in to producing

the exhibits. I know Cantabrians

will love these gardens and they

are sure to be real feature of the

Festival,” she said.

The school garden creations

will include an edible salad bowl,

a celebration of native plants, a

focus on wellness, a reflection

on life in the red zone and many

more ideas.

Grow Ō Tautahi is a free,

homegrown festival designed

specifically for Christchurch. It

is a creative and environmentally

aware event that draws on the

best ideas from the community,

schools, garden designers,

scientists, food gatherers and

chefs.

St Albans Catholic School ‘s

Nicky Ryan-Yates held two holiday

workings bees.

“We were so lucky to have the

support of Oderings Garden

Centre, who lent us the space to

store the plants over the holidays

and held tours for our garden

club. Working bees were a fantastic

opportunity for the pupils to

learn more about gardening, like

how different potting mixes are

made, how cuttings are taken

and how seedlings are potted.

“They were amazed to see

the growth of their plants

over summer and everyone is

incredibly excited about being

part of Grow Ō Tautahi,” she said.

social media led to a man being

accused of taking potentially

inappropriate photos of school

children outside two Hornby

schools last week.

It was later discovered the man,

who had been taking photos of

students outside Hornby High and

Hornby Primary schools, both on

Waterloo Rd, was gathering information

for a bid to make the road

safer to cross.

The Waterloo Rd resident is preparing

to bring a case before the

city council in an effort to make

the road safer for students.

Both schools shared a Facebook

post which said: “Suspicious character

alert! We have been advised

by a staff member of Hornby

High that after school today

there was a man outside both of

the schools taking photos of the

children crossing the road. When

approached by the staff member,

he quickly disappeared. Please

remind your children about stranger

danger and to report suspicious

behaviour to an adult.”

A later update on the Greater

Hornby Residents Association

Inc Facebook page said the man

was “acting in the best interest of

the Hornby community.’’

City Mission benefits from

Ryman Healthcare’s generosity

TRUCKLOADS OF whiteware

and other residential items

have been donated by Ryman

Healthcare to the Christchurch

City Mission from a village site

being redeveloped in the central

city.

The fridges, dishwashers,

washing machines and clothes

driers come from Bishopspark

Retirement Village, which was

previously operated by Anglican

Living.

They will be worth tens of thousands

of dollars to the mission.

Bishopspark is near Ryman’s

existing Park Terrace site and

looks across Hagley Park in the

heart of the city.

Bishopspark suffered significant

earthquake damage and will

be rebuilt by Ryman.

City Missioner Matt Mark

said it had not only received

whiteware but also other items,

including chairs and furniture,

from the site that Ryman had

taken over.

He said the material was

invaluable in the sense that the

mission would otherwise have to

go out and buy these items.

The whiteware sales would

help generate tens of thousands

GENEROUS: Tens of thousands of dollars worth of

whiteware has been donated to the Christchurch City Mission.

Christchurch City Mission property officer Brendan Douglas

with some of the whiteware goods. ​

of dollars in income plus practical

use and provide an “incredible

impact,” Mr Mark said.

There was also use for the furniture

when the mission helped

those in need set up a family or

individual in a home.

Ryman Healthcare has already

taken on the obligations of some

of Bishopspark’s existing residents

and has plans to redevelop

both central city sites as one

village.

The mission has had some

items for sale at its Great Opportunity

Shop at 275 Hereford St,

and on to other shop locations,

currently being refreshed by the

charity.

The transfer of goods was a

WESTERN NEWS

result of luck and the foresight

of the mission’s property officer

Brendan Douglas who was on

the search for some fluorescent

lights and panel heaters for a

property project.

When he became aware of

such items at Bishopspark he also

found there was other material

Ryman was willing to donate.

With the help of the Student

Volunteer Army and other volunteers,

to save on labour cost,

all the whiteware was shifted

out over the course of a weekend

and put into storage, for eventual

shop sale.

The opportunity shops are

usually very busy all year round.

Staff say that on an average day

they will get 400-500 visitors to

the central shop in Hereford St.

The central city location is a

“master shop” for the mission’s

other five locations in wider

Christchurch.

But Mr Mark and Mr Douglas

said the people of Christchurch

should be careful to donate

goods that people could use

again, otherwise, the mission

was left spending a fortune on

dumping fees.
