‘Sausagegate’ coming to a head

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

THE LONG-RUNNING

saga over whether catering a

community board should end

once and for all is set to come to

a climax today.

Mark Peters

Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton

Community

Board member

Mark Peters has

put forward a

notice of motion

to “cease catering”

for its meetings from next

month onwards.

Labelled “sausagegate” by

outspoken opponent Central

Riccarton Residents’ Association

secretary Garth Wilson,

the board’s fortnightly catering

budget has been a source of contention

for more than a year.

Last year, Mr Wilson raised

concerns over why the catering

costs and the decision to

keep the budget the same was

discussed at a public excluded

meeting in November.

It is the key reason why Mr

Peters has formally brought

the issue to the public meeting

today.

“It is time we nailed our

colours to the mast and brought

it in an open transparent

discussion.”

Crusade to stop park being treated like a ‘rubbish bin’

after hearing the city council will install

two new rubbish bins in Harrington

Park. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PETER SIMMONDS takes a lot of pride

in Harrington Park.

“But some other people in my community

don’t share that pride and then treat

it like a rubbish bin.”

That is reason why Mr Simmonds

made a fiery presentation to the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community Board

recently – calling the city council out for

not placing additional rubbish bins in the

park when they “promised” they would.

But a long crusade to get more bins for

the park may have finally paid off.

City council’s manager of community

parks Al Hardy said both rubbish bins

costing $968 each, will be installed as part

of the playground renewal works in Harrington

Park set to begin later this month.

Mr Simmonds said it was a relief the

city council had showed some “common

sense.”

It is the second time the Riccarton

resident has presented to the board on the

issue after he requested in May for an additional

rubbish bin to be installed by the

park’s basketball court.

Opposition to toxic waste plan mounts

Community

board asked

to intervene

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

“WE REALLY do not want this

to be the Greta effect.”

Those are the words from

the Prebbleton Community

Association Committee chairman

Peter Hunter – one of the

hundreds of residents fighting

against a toxic waste treatment

plant from opening in their

backyard.

Mr Hunter has called on the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board to “advocate,

intercede and petition” to stop

Waste Management from operating

a treatment and stabilisation

facility in South Hornby.

Mr Hunter made a presentation

to board at its meeting

on Tuesday following a recent

meeting in Prebbleton which

drew in a crowd of more than

500 people over the plans for

305 Marshs Rd.

He told the board he did

not want a situation similar to

17-year-old Swedish environment

activist Greta Thunberg.

Mr Hunter said he did not

want someone standing up in

front of the authorities saying

“you lot stuffed it up for us and

we have to live with it and try to

fix it.”

Last year, Miss Thunberg

gained international recognition

for her campaigning on climate

change.

She sailed a yacht to New York

from Plymouth, England, where

she attended the 2019 UN Climate

Action Summit and told

the heads of state:

“We are in the beginning of

a mass extinction, and all you

can talk about is money and

fairy tales of eternal economic

growth. How dare you,” she

said.

But Mr Hunter said: “We don’t

want that, we can’t afford it. We

need help.”

He is calling on the board to

help “stop” and “review” what

Waste Management is trying to

do.

“All we want to do is protect

the environment, protect our

people, protect our children,

protect our resources and our

grandchildren down the track.”

Residents have been considering

their legal options with the

potential to take the issue to the

High Court for a judicial review

of Environment Canterbury’s

decision to only consult people

within 500m of the facility.

But Mr Hunter said this

means the community will need

to find thousands of dollars.

Greta

Thunberg

Peter

Hunter

Board chairman Mike Mora

thanked Mr Hunter for his

presentation.

“All we can do is lobby and

work closely with you and I

would like to suggest a couple

of members of this community

board actually be formal liaisons

with the Prebbleton group on

this matter because it is going

to affect people as much in our

ward as it is yours,’’ he said.

Hornby residents have raised

concerns over how they will be

impacted by the new hazardous

plant, particularly if the wind

blows southerly.

Board member Helen

Broughton said it could grant

funding to support the resident’s

cause.

Mr Mora told Western

News he and board member

Mark Peters will meet with

the Prebbleton association to

discuss the next steps. City

councillor Jimmy Chen will also

be involved.

Brain tumour in a cat

This is a remarkable story where an 13

year old Norwegian Forest cat “ Sashenka”

was diagnosed via CT imaging of having

a brain tumour, “Meningioma” and

successfully had surgery two weeks ago

in a specialist hospital in Auckland to

remove the tumour. Never in 30 years

of being a vet have I had a client willing

to proceed to surgery to remove a brain

tumour in their pet, plus she survived and

is thriving. She’s one very lucky cat with

incredibly caring owners who wanted the

best possible outcome for their precious

cat.

Sashenka first presented just before

Christmas being a bit “off” - more

clingy, vocalising more, seeming to

have trouble going up and down stairs,

difficulty navigating obstacles, seeming

disorientated, scratching the wooden

floor boards, pacing, kneading and off

balance sometimes. She was a cat always

up a tree and she stopped doing this.

She wasn’t chasing her treats and started

walking in circles. She was never seen

seizuring though and continued eating.

We examined Sashenka and ran an

extensive array of blood and urine tests,

X-rays and ultrasound examinations. We

saw her 15 times in about three weeks.

All testing was basically normal. We tried

different medications and she stayed in

the hospital on IV fluids but we couldn’t

get a of handle on her diagnosis and

there was no improvement at home. Her

owner saw a different Sashenka than the

cat we saw at the clinic.

We consulted the services of Feline

consultants and specialists but she was

deteriorating quickly, having difficulty

eating and appeared dull and not

responsive to her owners at times. Steroid

injections showed improvement but her

bizarre behaviours did wax and wane

with her worse clinical symptom being

close to comatosed. We decided to CT

Sashenka to find out what was really

going on. We offer MRI (Forte Health)

and CT (Pacific Radiology at Lincoln)

at McMaster & Heap. The patients are

sedated and the images taken from

very fancy expensive computors. It’s

painless for the pet and can give us many

answers that other means of testing

can’t deliver. The radiologist diagnosed

Sashenka with a large intracranial brain

lesion , most probably a meningioma.

Other differentials included a glioma or

astrocytoma.

We consulted an experienced surgical

team in Auckland who were keen to take

over her case. After lengthy discussions

with the owners it was decided to push

forward with brain surgery, so Sashenka

and her devoted owners headed to

Auckland. Brain surgery isn’t a walk in the

park and more tests had to be carried

out on Sashenka. She was getting very

used to needles now and thermometers??

She had an MRI before the surgery and a

CT after the surgery to confirm position

of the titanium screws used to secure

her cranium back in place. She received

a blood transfusion on the day of the

surgery and had an oesophageal feeding

tube placed so that we were able to

supply her nutritionally post surgery, in

case she didn’t feel like eating. Once the

tumour was removed it measured 2.6cm x

3cm x 1.2cm - quite sizeable. She made an

excellent recovery from her anaesthetic

and stayed in the specialist hospital to be

closely monitored for a few days.

She had very specific discharge

instructions including cage confinement

for four weeks (an impossible requirement

for Sashenka), physiotherapy on her

back muscles and legs and medications

including steroids, pain relief and

antibiotics. Catherine has seen her

recently and she appears to be doing

really well - she even escaped her cage

and was seen running up a tree - her

favourite place to be, a birds eye view of

life.

Day 1 after the surgery.

The tumour may grow back and

Catherine is exploring chemotherapy

options but for now Sashenka has her full,

active life back again which is great news

for everybody. She may pave the way in

the future for other patients with brain

tumours. Thank you to Sashenkas mum

and dad for allowing me to write this

article on her.

Petition presented to

fight parking restrictions

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

RICCARTON residents

have rallied together to

fight plans to lose car

parking on their street to

make way for the weekly

rubbish collection truck.

A petition signed by 27

residents was presented to

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board

after it approved parking

restrictions on part of Colligan

St in December.

It called for the city

council to reconsider its

plan to put no stopping

lines on part of Colligan

St from Monday to Friday

6am-6pm and instead only

on rubbish days, due to the

difficulty rubbish trucks

have negotiating parked

cars in the cul-de-sac.

The board approved the

parking restrictions at a

meeting in December –

prompting a backlash from

residents.

Since the petition was

presented, city council

But he said staff are

should meet resident’s

concerns.

The petition, presented

by resident Janet Mansell,

called the changes approved

in December “excessive”

given the purpose

for the plan is to enable

rubbish trucks to turn

around more easily.

It instead called for a

notice to be placed on

days from 6am-3pm

as an appropriate solution

WESTERN NEWS

for this problem.

In her presentation to the

board, Ms Mansell raised

concerns many residents

including herself weren’t

notified.

One of the key issues

originally from city council

staff was if the parking

restrictions were only in

place once a week – Thursday

– it would be difficult

to enforce.

This was because rubbish

collection day could

sometimes change to the

following day because of it

falling on a public holiday.

But Mrs Lee said a public

holiday falling on a Thursday

in the next 10 years

will occur seven times –

which was very low.

Quarry decision time extended

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

QUARRY opponents nervously

anticipating a decision on

whether a controversial quarry

will open in Templeton has been

forced to wait a bit longer.

The hearing for Fulton Hogan’s

proposal to open a quarry

between Dawsons, Jones, Maddisons

and Curraghs Rds will

not be made this month.

The hearing

has not

closed due

to a request

from the

independent

hearings

panel chaired

Roger

Cudmore

by Rob van

Voorthuysen

for further

information

from Fulton Hogan over the

quarry.

The hearing reconvened on

February 5 so commissioners

could decide if issues addressed

in the company’s right of

reply was sufficient or if the

application would be declined.

The company’s right of reply

to concerns raised throughout

a three-week hearing late last

year was made public earlier this

month.

Leading up to the reconvening

of the hearing, an Environment

PENDING: Further information is required of Fulton Hogan

before the hearings panel can make a final decision on

whether its controversial quarry can go ahead in Templeton.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

Canterbury spokeswoman told

Western News it was possible if

the commissioners were satisfied

with the response the hearing

could close that day.

While it was not normal

practice, the commissioners

allowed written questions from

submitters at the reconvened

hearing to be put to Fulton

Hogan – if the commissioners

agreed they desired the answers

themselves.

The questions written by

submitters passed onto Fulton

Hogan by the commissioners

were:

•What route will trucks

accessing or departing the

proposed quarry take if the

Dawsons Rd railway crossing

is unavailable due to planned

maintenance or unforeseen

events?

•How much land does Fulton

Hogan own in the city council

quarry zone that has been consented

for quarrying but has not

yet been quarried?

•How much other land does

Fulton Hogan own outside of

the city council quarry zone

(a part from the Roydon site)

that has been consented for

quarrying but has not yet been

quarried?

At the reconvened hearing,

Golder Associates (NZ) principal

environmental consultant

Roger Cudmore also presented

new evidence addressing potential

offset from the quarry of air

pollutant PM10.

New written replies to Mr

Cudmore’s evidence including

experts on behalf of the quarry

is now required by the panel.

The panel also had further

questions for Golder Associates

(NZ) associate and senior

environmental scientist Audrey

Wagenarr who was unable to

attend the hearing.

Fulton Hogan and other organisations

required to respond

to the new evidence presented

at the hearing will have until

Friday, February 28.

Said Templeton Residents’ Association

secretary Jolene Eagar:

“It is pretty much out of our

control at this stage, but in the

end, she would rather the commissioners

make an informed

decision than feel rushed.’’

If the panel is satisfied with

the response they will close the

hearing and a decision will be

released 15 working days later.

Harrington Park

to get more bins

•From page 1

“I say a promise is a promise

and I will keep coming back to

the board until it is done because

it doesn’t make sense why you

make a promise and not follow

through with it,” he said.

There is currently only one rubbish

bin on the eastern side of the

playground located near the rear

of the park.

“What has happened in the

meantime while these bins haven’t

been put in is it is being used

like a rubbish bin. Rubbish is

being dumped, furniture is being

dumped in there, graffiti – everything

that is going on just starts to

escalate.

“The easiest thing to do is nip it

in the bud, first up with bins.”

As well as one rubbish bin being

placed by the basketball court, he

has suggested one could be put by

the public toilets.

Mr Simmonds said the public

toilets is being treated with a great

deal of disrespect.

“It is being vandalised, blocked,

doors are being smashed, there

has been a phallic image drawn

on the walls.”

Mr Hardy said its planning

team will incorporate the latest

design practices when renewing

park facilities to minimise

vandalism and it monitors its

parks for incidents.

Grow Ō Tautahi festival to showcase community garden

WORK IS under way on a

collaborative community

garden exhibition for visitors

to explore at Grow Ō Tautahi

Christchurch Garden Festival.

This is a free event, which will

be held in the Botanic Gardens

from March 20 to 22.

The Canterbury Community

Gardens’ Association is

bringing together all of

Canterbury’s 32 community

gardens to create an interactive

exhibition where visitors can

sit on living furniture, enjoy a

lush garden space, play amongst

living sculptures and post

photos of their adventures.

Grow Ō Tautahi festival

director Sandi MacRae said the

community garden will be a

highlight.

“Grow Ō Tautahi is a homegrown

festival that draws on

our region’s love of gardens,

creativity, innovation and design.

We are absolutely focused

on our local community so it’s

really exciting to have all the

region’s community gardens

represented in one very special

exhibition.

“When I first heard of the

combined community garden

concept, I knew people would

fall in love with the idea.

You’ll be able to come along,

take photos of yourself on the

living furniture and experience

a piece of each of the

individual community gardens

dotted around the region.

“What better way to

celebrate the concept of the

community coming together

to work in a garden and create

a special place that everyone

can enjoy,” she said.

More police to

respond to break-ins

• By Matt Slaughter

POLICE WILL increase patrols

across south Christchurch after

a spike in the number of vehicles

being broken into.

Detective Senior Sergeant Damon

Wells said vehicle break-ins

have been increasing throughout

this area, particularly in

Halswell but did not say by how

much.

“We don’t have statistics available

at this time but anecdotally

have seen an increase.”

Detective Senior Sergeant

Wells did not say how many police

officers will be patrolling the

areas or how many hours they

will devote a week.

“For operational reasons, we’re

not able to share specific detail

on police resourcing,” he said.

Halswell Residents’ Association

secretary David Hawke said

he is not aware of the recent

spike in vehicle break-ins in the

area but it is good police are responding

to this if it is an issue.

Said Mr Hawke: “I guess from

a general statement, our expectation

is that they [police] respond

to the level of the problem.”

Mr Hawke hopes increased

patrols will also lead to police

reducing the number of speeding

vehicles driving through

Halswell, which the residents’ association

has raised as a concern

in the past.

“I guess the interest we’ve had

SAFER: Police patrols will increase in south Christchurch, particularly

Halswell, to address an increase in vehicle break-ins.

more recently was more police

patrols to enforce speed limits.”

He said police appeared to

be doing a good job of slowing

down drivers since speed was

raised as a concern by the association.

He believes increased

patrols could help reduce speeding

in the area even further.

Said Detective Senior Sergeant

Wells: “Police patrolling in the

area will perform a number

of tasks, including providing

prevention advice and responding

to any offending that takes

place.”

Meanwhile, police would like

to remind residents of measures

they can take to make their vehicle

less appealing to thieves.

Police ask residents to help

deter burglars by not leaving

valuables or documents with

personal information in vehicles,

parking in well-lit areas, locking

vehicles and taking keys with

them.

Boats or vehicles should be

disabled so they can’t be moved

or towed away and locked in

secure garages. People are also

urged to keep in contact with

neighbours.

Tradies are encouraged to

get their tools engraved with

their driver licence number and

secure them inside vehicles with

chains and padlocks.

Catering

saga called

‘ridiculous’

• From page 1

In 2018 it was revealed the

board was the biggest spender on

food catering – spending more

than $10,000 since 2016/17.

It has cut back it’s

catering, reducing its

budget from $78 to

about $68 a meeting

after it previously sat at

$174.

Mr Peters said catering

has never been

something he has

partaken in and the

board needed to be wise

about how ratepayer

money is spent at a time when

the city council is under financial

pressure.

Mr Wilson said the people of

the Riccarton community are

totally opposed to catering.

He said the whole saga was

“ridiculous” which is why he has

named it “sausagegate.”

Savouries such as sausage rolls

have previously been a common

sight at board meetings.

Mr Wilson has questioned how

elected members – particularly

city councillors on more than

$100,000 – can justify spending

ratepayer money on catering.

“I call it stealing it money from

low-income people that is basically

what it is.”

In December city councillors

received an 11 per cent

pay rise – in spite of

opposition from some

city councillors. Their

annual salary has increased

from $97,280 to

$114,130.

As the role of chairman,

Mike Mora is

paid $46,595 while

board members are paid

$23,297 annually.

Mr Mora, who previously

said catering at meetings was a

“necessity” would not say how he

would vote at the board today.

City councillor Jimmy Chen

said he needed to listen to the

other board members at the meeting

before making a decision.

But he said now that the board

meetings are planned to be

shorter this term, he does not see

the need for the catering.

Said Mr Wilson: “This is

coming to a climax . . . you will

see how sausagegate plays out

today.”

Another board decision delayed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HALSWELL-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora has told his fellow

board members to “grow some

whatevers and actually make a

decision on the board.”

The outburst was during

a debate at the board’s

public meeting recently

over whether some yellow

lines should be painted on

three residential streets in

Halswell.

City council staff had

recommended no stopping

restrictions were installed on

parts of Bronco Drive, Bibiana St

and Stallion Ave.

But now an overhaul

of the original report on

the parking restrictions is

in motion after concerns

from board members not

enough public consultation

on the proposal was

initially carried out.

But before the decision

was made Mr Mora said:

“We have just got to grow some

whatevers and actually make a

decision on the board.”

But board member Mark Peters

hit back.

He said: “I actually find that a

slight bit offensive, Mr Chair, being

told to grow something and

make a decision.”

Mike Mora ​

Mark Peters

Mr Mora responded “fair

enough.”

He later said while it was probably

the wrong choice of words,

people do need to realise the

board is there to make decisions.

“I am a straight shooter – I say

what I think”.

The comments were

after Mr Peters raised

concerns the entirety of

Bronco Drive had not been

consulted on the no stopping

restrictions.

City council traffic

engineer Barry Hayes said

generally he goes about

three properties beyond the

extent of the proposal and he

contacted the Halswell Residents’

Association.

But Mr Peters put

forward an amendment

for the decision over the

no stopping restrictions

to be delayed until further

consultation had been held

with all residents of Bronco

Drive and Stallion Ave.

Already, the board had voted

to delay making a decision on

a safety upgrade to the Ilam/

Middleton/Riccarton Rd intersection.

“I don’t want to be obstructive

but I want to ensure we have got

the consultation absolutely correct

and right.

NO CHANGE: The city council has received complaints from

residents of inconsiderate parking taking place on residential

streets including Bronco Drive. It has proposed no stopping

restrictions but further consultation is required.

The fact we had seen the surprise

on Colligan St, I want to make

sure we don’t sneak up on people

through consultation and we get

it right,” Mr Peters said.

Concerns were raised by

residents on Colligan St when

the board made a decision to

cut parking on their street to

make way for the weekly rubbish

collection truck without their

knowledge.

The vote on the amendment

drew a tie with board members

Helen Broughton, Ms Mora, Mr

Peters and city councillor Catherine

Chu voting for.

Mr Mora, board member

Gamal Fouda, city councillor

Jimmy Chen voted against while

board member Andrei Moore

abstained.

A second vote was called after

further questions with all board

members voting the same except

for Mr Moore – who voted against

the decision being delayed.

Transports operations manager

Steffan Thomas said the new

report will recommend the same

proposal as previously reported

on but will include any new

submissions following additional

consultation.

Previously staff consulted

30 properties in total – an

additional 10 properties will

receive further consultation.

Community

boards to get

public input

• By Louis Day

THE PUBLIC will have a say

on the priorities of community

boards for the first time.

The city council is publicly

consulting on the three-year plans

of community boards which set

out their priorities for local communities.

City council head of support,

governance and partnerships John

Filsell said the idea behind the

initiative was to get community

feedback in order to inform board

priorities.

These plans will guide the

boards’ decisions on local activities,

projects and facilities and advocacy

on behalf of communities.

Each plan will identify three

priorities per ward area, so the

Burwood-Coastal Community

Board for example which comprises

of two wards will have six

priorities. Burwood-Coastal is the

only board to have its plan out for

consultation at this stage. It has

proposed prioritising service delivery

at QEII Recreation and Sport

Centre, planning for an additional

community facility in Burwood,

the transformation of the red zone

and improving roading.

Mr Filsell said all boards would

have their plans out for public

consultation until early March.

Dalziel backs plan to

build indoor courts

at Nga Puna Wai

CHRISTCHURCH Mayor

Lianne Dalziel is throwing her

weight behind a bid to build new

indoor courts at the Ngā Puna

Wai Sports Hub.

The city council agreed on

Thursday to begin consulting

the public about leasing land at

Ngā Puna Wai to Netsal so it can

build a new multi-court indoor

facility.

Netsal was established by the

Mainland Football Federation

and the Christchurch Netball

Centre specifically to develop,

own and operate a planned

10-court indoor sports facility.

Said Ms Dalziel: “We have

some great sporting facilities

in Christchurch but one of the

things we are lacking is a high

quality multi-court indoor facility.

“Christchurch Netball and

Mainland Football have partnered

to fill that gap and have

been working together for a

number of years to get this project

off the ground.

“We think there is merit in siting

the new indoor courts facility

at Ngā Puna Wai, which is already

home to top-class facilities

for hockey, tennis, rugby league

and athletics.

“Adding facilities for netball,

futsal and other indoor court

sports would be totally in keeping

with the original vision

of Ngā Puna Wai as a hub for

multiple sporting codes.

“Because the land we are proposing

to lease Netsal is reserve

land, we do need to consult the

public and get their feedback.

“A hearings panel will be

convened to consider all

the submissions received.

The panel will then bring a

report to the council with its

recommendations.”

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.

Robertson to make

Blind Jacks debut

• By Jacob Page

DEANE ROBERTSON has

turned a $20 note into a national

lawn bowls selection.

The 53-year-old who lives in

Belfast and plays for Burnside,

will make his international

debut for the Blind Jacks against

Australia in May three years after

he rolled up and got close to $20

with his first ever bowl.

He, along with his director

Kevin Smith won the B1 singles

and finished runner-up in the B1

and B2 pairs at the nationals in

Christchurch last month.

“It was quite overwhelming to

know I had made the team,” he

said.

He will likely play singles and

pairs for New Zealand at the

event.

Robertson who lost his sight

because of glaucoma six years

ago, took up the sport three years

ago after attending a Blind Foundation

have a go day at Burnside

Bowling Club.

“I met Kevin and he put a $20

note down for me to aim at and

I got pretty close and it’s all happened

from there.

“Losing my eyesight really

affected me at first,” he said. “I

wouldn’t go anywhere or do anything

then I got with the Blind

Foundation and I realised that we

could do things.

“Initially I did something every

day of the week but I blew out

and got tired so now I just do

things two or three days a week

like walks in Lyttelton,”

Roberston said the people at

the Burnside Bowling Club had

made him feel welcome from day

one.

“Often I’ll pop down and just

listen to the games being played

and the other club members will

tell me what is going on.

Smith, who is based in Wagga

Wagga in Australia, said it was

deserved recognition for his

friend who has persevered in

spite of his lack of sight.

“It’s one of those Kiwi stories

about just getting on with it and

that’s certainly what Deane does.

“He has a great attitude.”

Record-breaking effort

for cancer fundraiser

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’

High School’s rowing team

has set a new world record and

raised more than $22,000 for

Leukaemia and Blood Cancer

New Zealand in the process.

Ed Lopas, a member of the

school’s rowing team, was

diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma

– a form of blood cancer

– last year. It was only fitting that

the 16-year-old had the honour

of finishing the last stint of the

successful world record attempt

last Tuesday. The team of 61 rowers

set a new world record for the

longest continual team erg (rowing

machine) by a group aged

under-19. Their time of 145hr

10min smashed the previous

record of 96hr.

“It was pretty special having

everyone cheer me on to the finish,”

said Lopas.

The team travelled a total

distance of 1937km. On a map,

their travels took them from

school, north to Blenheim, west

to Greymouth, south to Queenstown,

east to Dunedin and up

SH1 back to school.

The school’s rowing manager

Ricardo De Sousa said he’s been

blown away by the team’s commitment

to the record-breaking

achievement.

“The boys have been absolutely

incredible. We thought it would

be a bit of a headache trying to get

boys on the egg at silly hours of

the morning. It’s not the most fun

thing to be on and the boys tend to

shy away from it, but they wanted

to do it for Ed,” said De Sousa.

Senior rowers did shifts of

90min with some of the movies

doing shifts between 30-45min.

The team began the world record

big on February 5 and had

surpassed the previous world

record by the following Sunday

afternoon.

Ed was diagnosed with

Hodgkin’s lymphoma in July last

year.

After five months of successful

chemotherapy, Ed was cleared to

start physical activity again and

hopes to row at the Maadi Cup

regatta on Lake Ruataniwha near

Twizel next month.

Tasty Bites

WESTERN NEWS

No more beeting around the bush

• By Ian Knott

Beetroot deserves so

much more than being

dumped from a can onto

a green salad. Packed

with essential nutrients,

this vibrant vegetable is a

great source of fibre, folate,

manganese, potassium,

iron, and vitamin C

Beetroot and halloumi

sliders with chilli jam

Serves 4

Ingredients

400g tin chickpeas, rinsed and

drained

1 tsp ground cumin

1-2 hot green chillis, finely

chopped

250g raw beetroot, peeled and

grated (wear gloves to avoid

staining your hands)

2 Tbsp chopped parsley

50g fresh wholemeal

breadcrumbs

1 egg

olive oil

Halloumi 1 slice per slider

Handful of rocket

8 or 12 small buns (brioche if you

can get them), split and cut side

toasted

Chilli jam to serve

Directions

Put the chickpeas in a bowl

and mash them roughly, add

the cumin and chilli and mash

again. Add the beetroot, parsley,

breadcrumbs, egg and plenty of

seasoning. Mix well and form into

8 or 12 small patties.

Heat about 1cm of oil in a

frying pan and fry the patties on

each side until they are crisp and

brown. Drain on kitchen paper.

Fry the halloumi briefly until it

starts to brown a little. Put a few

rocket leaves on the base of each

bun, add a patty and a slice of

halloumi followed by a spoon

of chilli jam then put the lid on.

A cocktail stick will hold the lot

together. Serve 2 or 3 per person.

Roast beetroot soup with

caramelised onion and blue

cheese toast

Serves 6

Ingredients

1kg beetroots, topped, tailed,

scrubbed clean and cut into large

pieces

1 red onion, cut into wedges

3 cloves garlic

½ a small bunch of thyme, plus a

few leaves

500ml vegetable stock

100ml crème fraîche

½ lemon, juiced

For the toast

3 slices sourdough, cut in half

4 Tbsp caramelised onion

chutney

150g blue cheese

handful of walnuts, roughly

chopped

Directions

Heat the oven to 200 deg C

(180 deg C fan forced). Put the

beetroots, red onion and garlic

into a roasting tin, pour in 150ml

of water, season well and scatter

over the thyme. Cover with a

double layer of foil and put into

the oven for 1hr 15min or until

the beetroots are very tender to

the point of a knife.

Remove the foil, peel the

beetroots and discard the skin,

then chop into small pieces. Put

into a pan with the onion, garlic

and vegetable stock, bring to the

boil then use a hand blender to

whizz until completely smooth,

or ladle into a blender and whizz.

Season, then stir in the crème

fraîche and lemon juice, and

whizz again. Keep warm.

Heat the grill to high. Put the

bread pieces onto a baking tray

and toast on either side. Spread

each piece with the chutney and

then add a piece of blue cheese,

some thyme leaves and walnuts.

Grill until melted.

Spoon the soup into bowls and

top with the toast.

aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that there won’t be any
