Residents fear for safety

accessing Langdons Rd

Northlink

complex

puts pressure

on parking

• By Bea Gooding

A NEW shopping complex is

already posing a major problem

for nearby residents – they can’t

get out of their driveways safely.

Residents say the new

Northlink shopping complex

on Langdons Rd, Papanui,

has resulted in more traffic.

Combined with more vehicles

now parking on the street, the

lack of vision exiting driveways

has caused safety issues.

Resident John Williams said:

“The new Langdons Rd shopping

complex has and will create

on-street parking to a degree

which conspires to create a visual

hazard for residents exiting their

properties by motor vehicle.

“If a resident has an accident

leaving their driveway they will be

at fault for driving into oncoming

traffic, this is not acceptable.”

Damaged graves could cost family

• By Matt Slaughter

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

NORTHWOOD resident

Lynette King is shocked by the

state of the grave sites of her

relatives.

Mrs King’s great grandmother,

great grandfather and two of

their sons, one who died in

World War 1, are buried at

Bromley Cemetery and their

gravestones are damaged.

Mrs King said her son in law

Steve Berry is a concrete layer

and he wants to do the repairs

for free himself.

The city council have said

this can’t happen and Mrs

King’s family will have to pay

a city council-approved contractor

if they want the graves

repaired.

Mr Berry has installed headstones

at Linwood Cemetery and

Harewood Memorial Gardens

and Crematorium in the past

and estimates going through a

city council-approved will cost

about $5000.

Said Mr Berry: “I do a bit of

work for them [the city council]

and when they do get contractors

to do work it is I’d say

extravagant but they may not say

that.”

Said city council community

parks manager Al Hardy: “Only

an approved contractor for monumental

work may undertake work

associated with any monument

(including concrete kerbing or

covering) in a council cemetery.”

Said Mrs King: “I didn’t know

that we had great grandparents

at Bromley Cemetery so we went

and had a look and the grave was

disgusting. It had all fallen over,

the headstone was off, there had

been nothing done to it.

“They [the city council] won’t

let us tidy that grave and yet it’s

a disgrace, that whole cemetery,”

she said.

One of Mrs King’s relatives’

headstones has fallen on its face

and the family wants to prop

it up again so people can see

the name on it. Mrs King said

they’ve been told this also has

to be done by a city councilapproved

contractor.

“These are family members.

These people came from Ireland,

came over on a boat . . . started

businesses, they had 12 children.

They have to be respected. If I

had a grave and it was in that

sort of repair I’d be disappointed

in my family that they didn’t

at least tidy it up and make it

respectable so people could read

who they were in that grave.

That’s all we want.”

White lines ‘a waste of time’

•From page 1

Northlink, due to welcome

Kmart on April 2, is expected

to generate peak-hour traffic

of close to 600 vehicle trips per

hour when development is fully

completed according to resource

consents.

Mr Williams wrote to the

Waipapa/Papanui-Innes

Community Board on behalf of

residents in neighbouring units

expressing their concerns.

THis was due to an increased

volume of cars and vans

parking on Langdons Rd which

were often parked too close to

entranceways.

Residents asked for the

installation of yellow lines to

prevent other vehicles from

parking near driveways. After

being informed by the council

that potential yellow lines would

not be possible, they have since

installed white lines to remind

drivers of where they can legally

park.

According to Mr Williams, the

white lines have since faded and

have largely been ignored calling

it “a waste of time.”

Said Mr Williams: “Last year,

an elderly lady’s car was written

off leaving the premises as she

had a lack of vision leaving the

driveway.”

Since the initial concerns were

raised, the city council “has

made no contact with

us whatsoever, they fobbed

us off with no replies, no

information and nothing was

done.”

Because the hazard was

brought to the attention of

the council, nearby residents

believed they were obliged

to eliminate or minimise the

hazard before someone was

seriously injured.

Neighbour Craig Shirley says

you have to poke the nose

of your car beyond parked

cars.

“It’s like Russian roulette with

a gun.’’

Said Stephen Wright, city

council traffic operations

team leader: “White lines

are occasionally painted on

either side of an entranceway

to highlight the 1m rule. Site

investigations have shown that

CONCERNS:

by residents

GEOFF

SLOAN

one of the lines has faded away

and a request will be made to get

the line re-installed.”

Otherwise, “stopping

restrictions are not generally

installed either side of residential

driveways.”

He said any vehicle parked

within 1m of an entrance can

be dealt with by enforcement

agencies without the need for

broken yellow lines.

Said a city council

spokesperson: “Traffic

management was an important

consideration in planning for the

Northlink Shopping Centre. A

resource consent was approved

on the basis that changes to

the traffic environment can be

managed as required.

“Once construction works

are complete, council staff

will monitor impacts on the

roads.”

Pupils encouraged to

ride or walk to school

SCHOOLS IN the north west

are showing their support for

combating climate change by

taking part in Walk or Wheel to

School Day on March 4.

A number of schools will be

participating, such as Harewood,

Roydvale, Waimairi, Papanui and

Belfast schools.

The city council is encouraging

families to leave their cars at

home that day and walk, cycle,

scoot or skate to school instead.

Said city council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas:

“Transport accounts for more

than half of the city’s greenhouse

gas emissions. If we can get people

using their cars less and active

modes of travel more, it could

make a significant difference to

our carbon footprint.”

“It has been proven that active

travel to school can increase

children’s concentration by up to

four hours. Studies also show that

children who travel actively to

school have better spatial awareness

and more road sense than

those who are driven.”

“Walking or wheeling to school

has environmental, financial and

health benefits so we’re hoping

that all schools in Christchurch

will support this initiative. If

it does not suit schools to do

Young track cyclist on the road to Cairo

• By Bea Gooding

AT THE beginning of 2019

Charlotte Spurway made a bold

decision to give track cycling a

go.

One year later, the year 13

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School student

has been selected in the

13-strong New Zealand track cycling

team for the world championships

in Egypt in August.

This is the first time the UCI

junior track world championships

will be held in the Middle

East at the newly-constructed

velodrome in Cairo.

The 16-year-old said it all happened

“pretty quickly,” but was

excited for the new challenge

ahead.

“I was so excited when I found

out, especially being able to work

with the team over the year coming.

We all get on really well,”

she said.

“It will definitely be a new experience

for all of us, and probably

the first time we’ll all ride

our bikes in a place like that.”

Charlotte has always had an

avid interest in sports, coming

from a family that loved to

travel, surf and dive.

She moved to Christchurch

nine years ago, originally from

Brisbane.

“I’ve done sport for as long as

I can remember, it’s just been

a part of me. And then when I

came to Rangi in year 9 I started

school cycling,” said Charlotte.

“I starting doing weekly racing

and I just love the sport, there’s a

really cool community in it. And

then in the beginning of last year

I decided to try out track cycling

and since then it’s brought me to

where I am today.”

Charlotte was one of six

Cantabrians to make the team

with Jenna Borthwick (Lincoln

High School), Mikaela Grant

(Villa Maria), Laurence Pithie

(ex-Christchurch Boys’ High

School), Ryan McLeod (CBHS),

and Sebastian Lipp (Catholic

Cathedral College) also selected

based on excellent performances

at Oceania championships in

October and New Zealand

championships last month.

Said Charlotte: “It’s really cool

that six of us are Cantabrians,

especially when we’ve only got

an outdoor, concrete track here

CAIRO BOUND: Year 13 Rangi Ruru student Charlotte

Spurway will represent NZ at the track cycling team world

championships in Cairo.

in Christchurch compared to

other places with indoor centres.”

Denton Park Oval is the city’s

only velodrome. In New Zealand

there are two indoor velodromes

located in Invercargill and

Cambridge. Plans of an indoor

centre for Christchurch have

been discussed for years, but to

no avail.

“I can’t imagine what Canterbury

can achieve if we get an

indoor velodrome.”

Charlotte trains 13 hours a

week, while juggling school

work, having a social life and

other responsibilities and

obligations, but she does not let

the pressure get to her.

“I think it’s quite manageable.

We’ve all got time in our day

as long as you’re getting down

and doing it as soon as you can

and staying on task, especially

with the hours you’re given at

school.”

The young cyclist hopes to join

the elite programme after high

school and has the potential to

head to worlds again in 2021

while still being an U19 rider.

But in the meantime, more hard

work is in store.

“Remembering your support

network is always really

important. I couldn’t have got

to where I am today without

the support of my family,

friends, the Christchurch school

cycling and Canterbury track

communities,’’ Charlotte said.

Coriander’s

in liquidation

• By Sophie Cornish

A RESTAURANT owner facing

worker exploitation charges has

had four of his businesses put into

liquidation.

Last month it was revealed

Coriander’s Ethnic Indian Restaurants

owner Amar Deep Singh

is facing charges of exploiting

his workers, whom the Labour

Inspectorate concluded were

systematically underpaid and

abused.

Last week, four businesses

under Singh’s name were put into

liquidation by Inland Revenue.

These are Coriander’s Ltd, Jeet

Holdings Ltd, Jeet Holdings No 2

Ltd and Jeet Holdings No 8 Ltd.

The application is due to be

heard in the High Court at

Christchurch on March 5. Coriander’s

restaurants have operated

in the wider Christchurch area for

the past 12 years, with three restaurants

currently operating – one

in the central city, one in Upper

Riccarton and one in Rolleston.

In relation to the worker exploitation

charges, the Inspectorate is

seeking recovery of pay, a declaration

of breach, penalties and a

banning order.

The charges against Singh

are scheduled to be heard in

the Employment Court in

Christchurch on May 19 and 20.

The restaurants are still open.

Experienced physiotherapists caring

for the St Albans community

ProPhysio opened its doors to the

St Albans and Edgeware community

in 2014.

Offering over 40 years of combined

physiotherapy experience, directors

Megan Williams and Scott Suen strive

to provide a high-quality, affordable

and professional service.

They specialise in treating sporting

injuries, and are also passionate

about looking after people that are

suffering from general muscular

pain, fractures, or spinal conditions,

or recovering from orthopaedic

operations.

The ProPhysio clinic is situated

within the ProMed building

on Sherborne Street, where the

physiotherapists work closely with the

team at the medical centre, enabling

them to streamline physiotherapy

care for their clients with easier

diagnosis and specialist referral

within the same building.

“We believe that giving our clients

the best possible understanding of

their injury will give them the best

possible outcome,” Megan and Scott

say.

“We pride ourselves in providing

quality treatment, and the modern

facilities and technology at ProPhysio

enable us to do just this.”

They also pride themselves in

taking the time to listen to their

clients’ stories, which ensures there is

no information missed, and accurate,

quality treatment can be provided.

Megan and Scott believe in keeping

treatment affordable.

“We often hear the cost of

physiotherapy treatment is a big

barrier to people seeking the help

they really need, but we have kept

the same reasonable and affordable

pricing since 2014,” Scott says.

Their advice is, don’t leave those

injuries from tidying up the garden,

The North Canterbury News, January 30, 2020

SILVERSTREAM HEALTH HUB

Friendly service ... Pharmacy technician Sophie Light,

left, and pharmacist Elena Rimbovska.

Welcoming ... Silverstream Medical Centre offers a

comprehensive health service for patientsatall stagesoflife.

Wide skill base ... Physiotherapist Teresa Hoult demonstrates

hands­ontreatment on colleagueBrittany Peacock.

Hub offers diverse health services

Awide range of health and

wellness services in a

convenient one­stop location

caters not only for residents of

the Silverstream subdivision

where it is located, but also for

people in Kaiapoi and

surrounding areas, including

Christchurch’s northern

suburbs.

At the heart of this ‘‘health

hub’’ is the Silverstream

Medical Centre, which provides

comprehensive health services

for patients at all stages of life.

The skilled team of four

doctors comprises Dr Amrit

Riat, who has recently joined

the practice from Britain, Dr

Don Ponnamperuma, Dr

George Dehn and Dr Beth

Shore.

Dr Riat brings with her a

wide range of experience and

knowledge, while Dr Shore also

holds adiploma in child health

so particularly enjoys working

with children and families.

With two female doctors,

women’s health is afocus for

the centre.

They offer full women’s

health checks at $80 for the

45­minute appointment, as well

as family planning and

contraception.

Dr Dehn and Dr

Ponnamperuma both have a

special interest in

musculoskeletal medicine and

are experienced in treating the

aches and pains that can affect

muscles, bones and joints as we

age, or through injuries

sustained at work or playing

sport.

The Silverstream Medical

Centre, established in

September 2018, is fresh, bright

and welcoming, with a

comfortable waiting area, while

the friendly doctors, nurses and

administration staff ensure

everyone feels at ease.

The centre welcomes new

patients, with doctor visits free

for under­14s. Prescriptions

can be requested and

appointments booked through

its website.

Adjacent to the medical

centre is the Silverstream

Kaiapoi Pharmacy, offering a

full range of pharmaceutical

services.

Pharmacists Elena

Rimbovska and Georgia

McLean, who own and operate

the pharmacy, see their role as

one of the “puzzle pieces” in

the integrated health care of

customers.

Working in conjunction with

the customer’s doctor, they

focus on optimising medicines

for maximum benefit, by

advising customers on the best

way and best times to take

them.

For those who take multiple

medications, or who don’t feel

like they are getting the most

from their medication, afree

medicine review with a

pharmacist can be especially

helpful, Elena says.

“Managing medicines can be

quite overwhelming so we

encourage patients or family

members to talk to us if they

have any issues or questions,

and make the most of their local

pharmacy.”

Listening to patients’

concerns is important for the

pharmacists, and as experts in

medicine they are able to

provide afull counselling

service, with aprivate

consultation room available.

They also provide wound

care and dressing, and will

recommend other

professionals if more

specialised treatment is

required.

Both pharmacists say

supplements are now being

incorporated as part of a

healthy lifestyle, with more

people taking them.

“It’s great to see that people

are becoming interested in

natural health to prevent

health conditions, and age

well,” Elena says.

Total Health Physio &

Podiatry, located on the other

side of the medical centre,

specialises in manual, handson

physiotherapy and exercise

rehabilitation for clients of all

ages.

There are three senior­level

qualified physiotherapists on

the staff –Teresa Hoult,

Brigette Higinbottom and

Brittany Peacock.

“Having three

physiotherapists means we

have adiverse skill base,”

Teresa says.

Joint mobilisation and soft

tissue massage are applied to

help patients return to full

fitness after surgery or injury,

with exercise­based

rehabilitation an important

part of the process.

Treatment is tailored to suit

the individual patient’s needs

and sessions last for afull halfhour,

allowing the physiotherapist

to spend time with the

patient, which Teresa believes

is very important.

“Close working relationships

with the Silverstream Medical

Centre and the pharmacy, plus

specialists, means we can

ensure client management is

maximised,” she says.

Acupuncture treatment is

also available.

Podiatry services are offered

at the clinic every Monday and

Wednesday by qualified

podiatrist Corrie Hoult.

He provides general foot

care, including minor surgery,

and also makes orthotics, which

are specifically tailored to

individual needs.

Triton Audiology services are

available on Thursdays at the

clinic, with the audiologist and

ear nurse alternating

fortnightly. Free hearing tests

and ear wax removal is

provided by Triton.

Total Health Physio &

Podiatry also runs Pilates

classes, which are proving very

popular, Teresa says.

Pilates enhances core

strength and flexibility,

improving general well­being,

as well as being auseful tool for

injury rehabilitation and

prevention.

All three health facilities are

located at 42 Silverstream

Boulevard, with ample parking

allowing easy access to all the

medical services.

In your

neighbourhood

Your money, your

home, your choice

These days, it’s all too easy to feel as

though we are just a number when we

work with the banks. Kim at Mylend

understands, and wants to make sure

that her clients are treated as individuals

with tailored finance packages that suit

them, their situation and their future.

Having previously worked with one of

the major banks, and real estate firms,

Kim’s background enables her to have full

knowledge of all transactions to do with

home lending.

Mylend’s founder Kim Laurenson

has longstanding relationships with all

the banks across Canterbury and she

can negotiate on your behalf to get the

very best deal for you – better still, the

banks pay for this service, it’s free for the

customer. She does her best to demystify

the jargon and make the process as

simple and straightforward as possible.

She appreciates that as a customer of the

banks, you have choices, and she believes

in finding solutions that best match your

needs. “It’s not a one-size-fits all,” she says.

Whether it is your first home or you are

refinancing, Kim knows that “it’s your

money, your home, and your needs that

should be considered.” She will help you

find out if what the bank is offering is right

for you, or whether something else would

work better.

With over a decade of financial

experience, and ably supported by

Operations Manager Georgina Bell, Kim

has a thorough knowledge of our local

banks’ processes and options. Buying

your first home, moving house or simply

refinancing to take advantage of the

current interest rates can be complicated.

Kim is there to ensure arranging finance is

as stress-free as possible.

Kim is completely impartial and

independent and she will talk you through

your options, and help you make a sensible

and informed decision. Kim explains that

with interest rates as low as 3.39% fixed

for one year, this is a wonderful time to

refix your lending and use the rates to your

advantage. She will sit with you and help

you to maximise the repayments to the

bank, so your lending is paid off faster.

With so much experience, the Mylend

team find most of their clients are

returning customers or are referred to

them by word-of-mouth. They trust Kim’s

advice and know that she and Georgina

are there to help them navigate lending for

long-term financial success.

BISHOPDALE’S KRIS Wilder

has had a whirlwind code-hop to

Australian Rules.

After being encouraged by a

friend to try the sport last year

to improve his rugby fitness, the

27-year-old played five games

for the University Cougars in

Christchurch and was then

selected in the New Zealand AFL

draft in November.

He has played two games for

the Western Crows in the national

competition in Auckland, playing

full-forward and kicking six goals.

The four team competition

sees Wilder travel to North Harbour

Stadium each weekend for

the 10-week competition.

“I played five games for the

Canterbury University Cougars

and obviously did enough to be

on the radar for the draft.

“It cost $600 to enter it but if

you get drafted that covers your

10 weeks of flights to Auckland

and your meals, kit, warm-ups

and ice baths etc.

“It’s quite professional in that

sense, it’s like the Mitre 10 Cup

NEW

CHALLENGE:

Bishopdale’s

Kris Wilder

is playing for

the Western

Crows in

the New

Zealand AFL

competition at

North Harbour

Stadium each

weekend for

the next 10

weeks.

Code-hopping

success for Wilder

in rugby, that’s the best way I can

describe it.”

In 2018 the average Australian

AFL player earned A$369,000

(NZ$385,000) but Wilder said

going professional was a longshot,

not only for him but most

of the New Zealand players.

“My goal is to make the New

Zealand Academy team at the

end of the season because there

will be an Aussie team that will

tour here and I’d like to test myself

against them,” he said.

“The difference in standard

here compared to Australia is

huge – Aussie kids smash us and

I don’t think it will be about the

money for me at this point.”

He said he planned to play senior

rugby this season and bring

up 100 games for the Lincoln

premier team.

“This has taken me a lot

further than I thought it would

considering I just wanted to do it

to be a fitter, better rugby player.

“It is a fast game with a

lot of running and a heap of

athleticism and I’m keen to just

see where I end up with it.”

Champion Freight recently expanded operations, developing inhouse

software solutions for clients to enhance and improve logistics services. It

signals an exciting new era for the company, embracing technology

through recruitment and staff development.

Citing Vision College’s strong reputation for academic excellence and

digital expertise, we sought their assistance to appoint a proficient

developer from a range of IT enrolments. This led to the successful

appointment of Elliott who was an undergraduate student at the time.

Working together to facilitate a path to graduation through on-the-job

experience, we were thoroughly impressed with the proactive assistance

provided by Vision College. Elliott’s broad technical knowledge and ability

to adapt quickly to the role is a testament to the quality of tertiary

education provided and we look forward to repeating the process in the

future as operations expand.

Tasty Bites

One-pot wonders to keep the summer vibe going

• By Ian Knott

With the recent resurgence

of warmer temperatures

there’s no need to

prematurely put the

outdoor furniture away just

yet. Keep that summer vibe

going with these crowdpleasing

one-pot wonders

Slow-cooker pulled pork

Serves 6

Ingredients

2 onions, halved and sliced

1 Tbsp smoked paprika

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp garlic salt

2 tsp sea salt flakes

2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

3 Tbsp red wine vinegar

2 Tbsp tomato purée

2 Tbsp soft light brown sugar

1.5kg boneless pork shoulder,

skin and excess fat removed

To serve

Soft white rolls

Coleslaw

Sliced red onions

Sliced gherkins

Directions

Heat the slow cooker to high.

Put the onions in the bottom of

the slow cooker.

Mix together the spices, salts,

mustard, vinegar, tomato purée

and sugar. Rub all over the pork

then sit on top of the onions.

Cook for 8 hours. Remove the

pork and shred into chunks. Mix

in 4-5 Tbsp of cooking liquid

from the slow cooker.

Serve in buns with coleslaw,

sliced red onions and gherkins, if

you like.

Halloumi and vegetable

tray-bake

Ingredients

4 courgettes, cut into small

chunks

1 red onion, cut into slim wedges

3 large garlic cloves, skins left on

3 Tbsp olive oil

300g cherry tomatoes

250g halloumi, sliced

CROWD-PLEASERS: (Left) Slow-cooker pulled pork,

(above) halloumi and vegetable tray-bake

¼ tsp cumin seeds

Dried chilli flakes a few pinches

(optional)

To serve

Flatbreads

Hummus

Hot sauce (optional)

Directions

Heat the oven to 200 deg C/180

(fan-forced). Toss the courgettes,

onion and garlic with the olive

oil and tip into a large, shallow

baking dish. Season well and

roast for 10min.

Stir in the cherry tomatoes

and sit the halloumi slices on

top. Sprinkle over the cumin

seeds and chilli flakes, if using.

Cook for another 15min until the

tomatoes start to burst and release

juice, and the halloumi is turning

golden.

Squeeze the garlic cloves out

of their skins and mash into the

oil and juices in the baking dish,

stirring it in. Spoon everything

onto plates and serve with soft

flatbreads and hummus or hot

sauce, if you like.
