Birdlife concerns raised

over pathway proposal

• By Matt Slaughter

BIRDLIFE WILL be harmed if a

pathway is built along the western

edge of the Avon-Heathcote Ihutai

Estuary, groups say.

The city council may consider options

for an alternative route.

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary

Ihutai Trust and Redcliffs Residents

Association are opposing the city

council’s proposal to extend its 360

walking and cycle trail along the

estuary edge beside the Bromley

oxidation ponds.

Both groups have raised their

concerns with the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board.

Estuary trust chairman Kit

Doudney said the estuary is home

to about 100 bird species and has

recently been made part of the East

Asian-Australasian Flyway. This

means migratory birds which use

the estuary, such as the bar-tailed

godwit are protected.

But Mr Doudney said constructing

the proposed pathway will put

godwits and other bird species in

jeopardy.

Said Mr Doudney: “The problem

with the pathway incurring into a

wildlife refuge is that the wildlife

suffers from incursion of humans

and often their companion animals

such as dogs and on occasions, in

this case, horses, on the estuary bed.

oxidation ponds will harm birdlife.

Mystery odour causing a stink

• By Matt Slaughter

A MYSTERIOUS odour

to Environment Canterbury 62

The smell is believed to be

Veterinary practice

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.

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

vehicles driving through

raised as a concern in the

past.

“I guess the interest

we’ve had 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.

Another board decision delayed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HALSWELL-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora has told his fellow

“This area – the oxidation

shoreline – is a crucial refuge for

endangered migratory birds and

rare New Zealand species. It is

humans and dogs, and the only

The comments were after

Mr Peters raised concerns the

entirety of Bronco Drive had not

been consulted on the no stopping

Said city council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge: An Ecological

Impact Assessment is under way

to report on how the pathway

values of the site (primarily

birdlife and lizards) and what

the overall impacts would be if

a range of potential mitigation

measures were put in place.

“Following further investigations

and cost estimates, the

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.

Because the details of the pathway

haven’t been decided, the

construction costs are not yet

known,” he said.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member Tim

Lindley, who is a member of the

estuary trust, didn’t speak for

the whole board but believes the

pathway should not go-ahead

close to the estuary. Instead, he

said there are grass areas further

away, which would be more

suitable.

He said he hopes the board will

discuss the community’s concerns

about the proposal this year and

decide on the next step.

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

Idle locomotive has family fuming

• By Louis Day

HAVING A locomotive’s engine

running next to your house at

the crack of dawn would be a

nightmare for most people.

For Saman Farahani, it is a

harsh reality he and his family

face up to three times a week.

His home on Lowe St in

Addington sits right next to the

railway.

Mr Farahani said over the

past three months a train would

occasionally stop between 6am

and 6.30am and the locomotive’s

engine would be idling outside

the house.

He said the combination of the

noise and the shaking from the

engine would wake up himself,

his wife Sara and three-monthold

daughter.

He also said the smell of

fumes fills up his house to the

point where he cannot stop

coughing.

“First thing when I wake up, I

cough because the house is full

of the smell of gas,” he said.

Mr Farahani said he was

concerned for the health of his

daughter.

He said moving was not

an option for him, with his

tenancy contract at the

property not running out

until October.

“The driver will stop outside

the house and the whole house

will start shaking and it will be so

loud you won’t be able to sleep.

“I’m just asking for a bit of

respect.”

Mr Farahani said he had

pleaded with the driver on

numerous occasions park the

locomotive further along the

railway line where there are no

houses, but was ignored.

KiwiRail acting South Island

general manager of operations

Mark Heissenbuttel said it

apologised for the disturbance

and was investigating how to

solve the issue as quickly as

possible.

“KiwiRail endeavours to be

a good neighbour to those who

live alongside the rail corridor,”

he said.

“Occasionally residents raise

issues like this with us and wherever

possible we try to adjust

our operations to remove the

nuisance.”

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.

who have been preparing for the

Grow Ō Tautahi Christchurch

Garden Festival.

St Mark’s, Heathcote Valley

School, Banks Avenue School,

St Albans Catholic School, West

Rolleston, West Eyreton, West

Melton, Burnside Primary and

Diamond Harbour School 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.

Said St Mark’s teacher Liz

Coster: “The importance of caring

for our community through

sustainable practices will be

reflected in the St Mark’s garden

entry at the Grow Ōtautahi Garden

Show.”

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

Garden Festival. ​

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,” 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.

Programme warns of

dangers of speeding

THE CRASH Bash road safety

programme being performed

across Canterbury schools over

the next few weeks will aim to

make teenagers aware of the

dangers of speeding.

The performance is targeted at

year 11-13 students and will tour

about 30 schools during term

one including Cashmere High

School, Hillmorton HighSchool

and Rudolf Steiner School.

Crash Bash is an interactive

stage performance that tours

secondary schools, spreading the

message to young people about

the importance of making safe

choices when driving.

This year’s performance,

What’s the Rush? is going to

focus on intersection safety and

the risks of speed.

Said city council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas: “Speed determines

both the likelihood of a crash

occurring and the severity of

the outcome. Regardless of what

causes a crash, whether people

walk away or are carried away

will depend on the speed their

vehicles are travelling.

DANGER: Interactive performance Crash Bash will aim to

discourage teenagers from speeding. PHOTO: GETTY

“We want young people to

be aware of the risks that come

with driving too fast and to

understand that the choices

they make when they get

behind the wheel of a car have

consequences – potentially

life-changing consequences,’’

Mr Thomas said.

Mr Thomas said drivers on

a restricted licence are seven

times more likely to be involved

in a crash resulting in a fatal

or serious injury than other

drivers.

SOUTHERN VIEW

“Data also shows that young

restricted drivers are more at risk

of having a serious crash in the

first six to 12 months of driving

solo on their restricted licence

that an at any other time in their

lives,” he said.

Crash Bash is led by the city

council, with funding support

from the New Zealand Transport

Agency.

The performance is developed

by the Court Theatre in

collaboration with Canterbury

Police.

Currently studying:

NZ Diploma in Web

Development and Design

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.

BUSY: Woolston Boxing coach Holly Sullivan will run the New

Zealand Golden Gloves in June for the first time in six years.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Woolston to hold

NZ Golden Gloves

• By Jacob Page

SPORT

THE WOOLSTON Boxing

Club will host the New Zealand

Golden Gloves event on June 27.

The national tournament is

seen as one of the pinnacle events

on the amateur boxing calendar

each year.

Woolston Boxing Club coach

and tournament organiser Holly

Sullivan said she wanted to host

the event after seeing how successful

it was in Rotorua last year.

“We hosted it back in 2014 and I

thought it was time we did it again.

“Rotorua had 40 bouts but

that’s with it being easier for the

North Island boxers to travel to

it so if I got 75 per cent of that I

would be really happy.

She said ideally each weight class

would have two South Island boxers

and two North Island boxers

who would compete for the right to

be called New Zealand No 1.

It will be a busy year for the

sport in the area with the club

hosting the South Island novice

championships in the lead-up to

the big event on March 21 and 22.

Sullivan said it would be her

10th time running the South

Island novice tournament which

was Woolston’s traditional annual

event.

“It is certainly going to be a

busy time but it is exciting.”

Both events will be held at the

Woolston Club.

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.

He’s not one to gossip but....

No one is recognised as knowing more about Hollywood than

celebrity journalist David Hartnell MNZM.

He’s spent a lifetime reporting on Hollywood’s scandals of

the rich and famous and counts a handful of celebrities as

lifelong friends.

Tuesday 25 February, 10am, is your chance to meet David and get the inside

scoop on some of the outrageous gossip he can’t print in his columns.

This time his lips will not be sealed!

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.
