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.

CONCERNED: Kit Doudney says a proposal to build a pathway along the Avon-Heathcote Ihutai Estuary near the Bromley

oxidation ponds will harm birdlife.

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.

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

UP CLOSE: Saman Farahani’s home will shake and fill up with fumes when a locomotive stops

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.”

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.

Call for pathway not to go

ahead close to estuary

•From page 1

“We absolutely welcome

the idea of walking and

cycling paths, it’s just that

this is the wrong area to

put it,” he said.

Said Redcliffs Residents

Association secretary Pat

McIntosh: “It would be a

very nice facility for people

to be able to walk around

the estuary edge but

unfortunately it’s a nature

reserve and it’s incredibly

important for the wildlife

at the estuary that they

actually have some space

where they’re understood.”

A motion passed at the

residents’ association’s

February 3 meeting and

emailed to the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote

Community Board said

the proposed pathway

“is in breach of local,

national and international

protections.

“This area – the

oxidation ponds, Linwood

paddocks, Sandy Point

and the adjacent shoreline

– is a crucial refuge for

a large variety of birds,

including endangered

migratory birds and rare

New Zealand species.

It is the last bastion of

estuary edge that does

not allow easy access by

humans and dogs, and the

only remaining mainly

undisturbed area for

waterfowl roosting in the

estuary,” the motion said.

Said city council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge: An

Ecological Impact Assessment

is under way to report

on how the pathway would

impact on the ecological

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,

whether to put the proposal

forward for public consultation.

Because the details of

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

Board’s plans open for discussion

• By Louis Day and

Matt Slaughter

Kelly Barber

THE PUBLIC can have a say

on the priorities for the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board for

the first time.

The city council is publicly

consulting on the community

board’s three-year plan and people

have until Monday to give

their thoughts on it.

The board’s priorities within

this plan are: improving Taiora:

QEII Recreation

and Sport

Centre, planning

for an additional

community

facility

in Burwood,

supporting the

transformation

and

activation of

the red zone,

improve roading and transportation

links and making the area

appealing and attractive.

Some specifics of these

priorities include improving

disability access to the changing

and toilet facilities at QEII,

upgrading the spa pool facilities

there, bringing forward funding

for the repair of Pages Rd and

the entrance to New Brighton

and repairing New Brighton

Rd.

The board’s chairman Kelly

Barber said the goals it has set

for the next three years are about

tidying up the wards, getting big

projects finished and bringing

more people to Christchurch’s

east.

“We’ve got the clock tower

just about to be finished and

unveiled, we’ve got the hot pools

very close to being finished,

we’ve got the streetscaping work

on Marine Pde also just about to

be finished.

“There’s plenty happening

here and we just need a chance

to tidy things up and get it looking

great,” he said.

Coastal-Burwood is the only

board to have its plan out for

years is open

consultation at this stage. All

other community boards

across Christchurch will have

their plans out for feedback until

early March when they come

out.

These plans will guide the

boards’ decisions on local

activities, projects, facilities

and advocacy on behalf of

communities.

Feedback sought

on Cumnor Tce

footpath proposal

A PROPOSED plan to make

a section of Cumnor Tce in

Woolston one way to allow for a

footpath is open for community

feedback.

The section between Chapmans

Rd and Maunsell St is part of the

Heathcote Expressway Major

Cycle Route.

Another section, between

Maunsell St and Marshall St, is

already one-way heading north.

The proposed change to

the already approved cycleway

design will allow for the

retention of the footpath on

the non-cycleway side of the

road, improving pedestrian

and road safety.

It will also ensure there is no

impact on the Heathcote River

following concerns over any potential

effect on the freshwater

habitat, with a narrower road not

encroaching on the river environment.

People can share their

views on the proposal with

New signs

installed

warning of

fire danger

• By Sophie Cornish

NEW SIGNAGE has been put

up in extreme fire-risk areas,

encouraging recreation users to

understand the dangers.

Thirty signs have been installed

this week by Fire and Emergency

New Zealand in large urban recreation

areas.

The wider Canterbury region

remains in a prohibited fire season,

open-air fires are banned.

Senior fire risk management

officer Bruce Irvine said the

signs are to bring attention to the

conditions and wants them to

encourage people to think about

their escape routes when in these

areas, including Bottle Lake Forest,

New Brighton beach, Godley Head

and other parks and recreation

areas in the Port Hills.

“In Australia, people became

trapped, because their escape

route had been blocked by fire

which was moving more rapidly

than expected. If you going to

smoke there, don’t. Take your

rubbish with you, anything

reflective, glass, metal etc that

could get hot in the sun, take it

with you,” he said.

Pools cool pooches’ paws

• By Sophie Cornish

SUMMER IS a good time to

paws and reflect and for these

SPCA pups, they’re doing just

that.

It’s a pool paw-ty at the

Christchurch Hornby centre after

it was inundated with donations,

following a call on Facebook for

any unwanted or old backyard

pools that could make these dog’s

summer last fur-ever.

As a result, more than 15 pools

were donated, including five new

pools costing about $180 each by

Bunnings Warehouse.

SPCA community fundraising

and events co-ordinator Kelsea

Nelson-Cummins said the single

Facebook post asking for old or

unwanted pools “did really well.”

“People have been really, really

generous and the dogs, as you

can see in the photos, absolutely

love it,’’ she said.

“It’s been so hot, sometimes for

our bigger dogs, it’s nice for them

to fully submerge in water.

“Believe it or not, because we

have so many facilities they are

pretty much all being used. We

squirrelled away a couple of the

new bigger pools because as with

dogs, bless them, there is a bit of

wear and tear with them jumping

in and out of the pools.’’

Kit and Charlie are both currently

up for adoption and the

SPCA is also looking for volunteers

for its annual appeal next

month.

“We are still looking for collectors,

so if anyone is yet to sign

up and it’s on their new year

resolutions list to volunteer for

a charity, definitely do,” Miss

Nelson-Cummins said.

Bus drivers play

matchmaker to

chance romance

• By Jess Gibson

SHE WAS from Sumner,

he was from North

Canterbury.

They had just met and

got talking at the central

bus interchange on Lichfield

St about 1.30am last

Sunday while waiting to

catch separate

trips home

after a night in

town.

But as they

were getting

to know each

other, it was

time to part

ways.

Following a bout of

Roe van

der Merwe

regret over not getting the

man’s phone number, the

woman turned to her bus

driver for help when she

got off the bus.

That bus driver was Roe

van der Merwe, who is also

the co-ordinator for the

new ‘Midnight Express’

Sumner service which

started on January 26.

He now remembers

nothing about his passenger,

except that she was 23

years old, blonde, and lives

in Sumner.

“When she got off in

Sumner she was like ‘I

know I should have done

this then, but I’m just going

to put myself out there.

Can you please call the

Rangiora bus?’

“So I called up the Rangiora

bus, the driver passed

her phone to the guy and

I passed my phone to [the

woman] and they had a

conversation. Numbers

know if anything eventuated from two strangers

were exchanged.

“According to the Rangiora

bus driver, the guy was

“quite chuffed” when he

found out she wanted his

number.”

Now, two “emotionally

invested” bus drivers want

to know if their matchmaking

skills have paid off.

Mr van der Merwe told

the woman to get in contact

with Bentley Transport

or Christchurch Shuttles

and Tours, which run the

Midnight Express lines, to

let someone know if anything

came of the brief but

memorable encounter.

“We are still waiting to

hear from them to see if

they’ve gone on their first

date yet.”

• If you were one of

the two involved in

the Midnight Express

romance, or if you think

you know who it may

have been, email jess.

No issues with Midnight

Express bus service

• By Jess Gibson

THINGS HAVE been

running smoothly for a

new bus service which

takes party goers from the

city to Sumner.

Bentley Transport or

Christchurch Shuttles and

Tours started a six-month

trial running the “Midnight

Express” Sumner

service on January 26.

It departs from the

Christchurch Bus Interchange

on Lichfield St and

follows the same route

as Metro’s Purple Line at

1.15, 2.15 and 3.15 am on

Sundays.

Redcliffs resident Topsy

Rule had initial concerns

about the service, as she

experienced issues with a

similar service which was

operating before the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

Passengers would make

noise and vomit when getting

off at stops along the

bus route.

But she said there have

been no problems so far

and she has heard no negative

feedback from other

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,

targeted towards year 11-

13 students, will tour 30

schools during term one

including Avonside Girls’

High School, St Margaret’s

College, Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School, Catholic

Cathedral College, St

Andrew’s College and

Christchurch Boys’ High

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.

“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

residents in Sumner and

Redcliffs when she has been

out in the community.

Sumner service co-ordinator

Roe van der Merwe

said no complaints have

been received since the trial

began.

He said there is an aim

for the service to be “as

courteous as possible.”

Mr van der Merwe said

at the moment, passenger

numbers are on the lower

side but the company is

working to increase its

profile.

Students warned of speeding

seven times more likely

“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

lives,” he said.

Crash Bash is led by

funding support from the

is developed by the Court

with Canterbury Police.

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

PEGASUS POST

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

PEGASUS POST

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.
