Debate rages over safety of

birds near proposed pathway

• By Matt Slaughter

THE CHRISTCHURCH 360

Trail group says birdlife will not

be harmed if a pathway is built

along the western edge of the

Avon-Heathcote Ihutai Estuary.

This is based on the final draft

of a Boffa Miskell report commissioned

by the city council

that says: “Actual levels of

disturbance to birds as a result

of the pathway constitute very

low, low or moderate ecological

magnitudes of effect.

“Opportunities to avoid and

minimise these effects are available.”

The Christchurch 360 Trail

is 135km so far and includes

walking tracks around the city’s

radius. The section beside the

estuary is one of the last needed

to complete the trail.

Christchurch 360 Trail chairwoman

Judith Millar said the

pathway proposal includes measures

which will protect birds

from threats such as pedestrians,

cyclists and dogs.

However, Avon Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust chairman

Kit Doudney said the trust “absolutely

refute that.”

The trust and Redcliffs Residents

Association are concerned

building the pathway in the

proposed area beside the Bromley

Oxidation Ponds will put

godwits and about 100 other bird

species which use the estuary in

jeopardy.

Mr Doudney believes the

pathway proposal goes against

the estuary’s status as part of the

East Asian-Australasian Flyway,

which is supposed to protect

birds that use it.

He wants the pathway built

further away from the estuary

and the city council is investigating

this option.

PROTECTION:

Christchurch 360

Trail chairwoman

Judith Millar says

science shows

birdlife will be

safe if a pathway

is built beside the

Bromley oxidation

ponds.

But Mrs Millar said the

current proposal includes

measures to stop birds from

being harmed.

Attitudes and Lattitudes

“As an American down under for more than 37 years, I realise I have

become addicted to the Southern Latitudes and the continuously

changing landscape of New Zealand. The bounteous flora, fauna,

landscape and weather provide a rich smorgasbord of images, never

static.”

“My painting process usually begins with a single object. Following

several preparatory sketches. I then start the process of adding other

images, as well as fabricated bits and pieces. It is the unforgiving

aspect of watercolour painting and the flexibility of moving three

dimensional components around on the surface that excites me.

Using a combination of fabricated tromp l’oeil paper objects and

the underlying painted surface, I hope to create work that is both

completely familiar and yet new again. Like life itself, each work

resonates with both the story and history associated with some objects,

and the imagined potential of others.”

This exhibition is John’s fourth at Little River Gallery. His passions in

life clearly drive the content of his art. Fishing, observing birds and

weather, nostalgic collections, conservation, typography and word

play are skillfully rendered and arranged with the designer’s eye. It is

difficult to appreciate the three dimensionality of John’s work without

the work before you. We love the appreciative sounds coming from

the gallery as the observer realises the extra dimension and life like

qualities John manages to achieve with paper.

​Council considering safety

improvements for Tennyson St

• By Matt Slaughter

THE CITY council is

considering widening traffic

islands on Tennyson St to

address pedestrian safety

concerns.

Star News reported last month

a member of the public illegally

painted a pedestrian crossing

after a schoolgirl was hit by

a cyclist on an e-bike while

negotiating a traffic island near

the Tennyson and Norwood Sts

intersection. The crossing has

since been removed.

In May 2018, a boy also suffered

a broken leg after he was hit

by a car at the same intersection.

Beckenham Neighbourhood

Association chairman Greg Millier

said its members want the city

council to widen the traffic island

closest to the intersection where

the e-bike accident happened.

Said city council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas: “Widening of the

islands is currently under consideration

as a means to improve

pedestrian safety.

“Design investigations are

currently under way to develop a

proposal to improve pedestrian

safety.”

Beckenham Te Kura o Pūroto

principal Sandy Hastings said:

“Needless to say the school is

concerned and the board [of

trustees] are concerned, as are

other schools and early child

areas in the area.”

Said Mr Miller: “A significant

part of the Beckenham School

community does cross that road

on the way to and from school and

really it’s crucial in terms of safety.

“There are quite a few [traffic

islands] there [Tennyson St] at the

moment and they’re just so small

and the visibility is not that great.

“Particularly the one by the

corner, if you stand there on the

footpath trying to look out for

traffic to see if there’s anything

coming when you want to get

across to the traffic island, you

can’t really see and just because

of parked cars and things you

can’t actually see much,” he said.

Mr Miller said he understands

city council staff has to make a

number of considerations before

going ahead with safety improvements

like widening traffic islands

but said it is important something

is done to keep school pupils safer.

He said in spite of the high

cost, ideally, he would like the

city council to consider installing

traffic lights closer to the

Norwood St end of Tennyson St

in the future.

“I think in the short term, we

would definitely like to see something

provide some safe crossing

points there and the that’s with

a view to greater improvements

down the track,” said Mr Miller.

However, Mr Thomas said:

“It would be difficult to justify

the signalisation of this

intersection due to the residential

nature of the area, relatively low

traffic demand, and, compared

to other intersections, there’s a

low crash risk.”

Protection to be introduced

• From page 1

“The [city] council is investigating

mitigation procedures to deal

with the issues that the estuary

trust people raised and we agree

that there should be measures.

We think there should be screening,

we think that a low barbed

wire between the trail and the

pond [estuary] levee is all that’s

necessary.”

Said city council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge: “The pathway

would be flanked by a security

fence several metres to the

pond side of the path, and screen

planting along the estuary

shore. Planting along most of

the estuary shore already

exists; the project is to provide

screening of most of the remaining

gaps.”

Mr Rutledge said additional

protective measures, which

may also be considered include

“educational signage promoting

the site values, dog exclusion

signage, regular monitoring

of compliance, track closure

at certain times” and “vehicle

barriers at entry points.”

Mr Doudney said these measures

won’t work and birds will

suffer.

“Since last winter, we’ve got

new data from a student who was

disturbance. There will be a massive

impact.”

Mr Doudney believes the

360 Trail group’s members are

avoiding meeting with the trust

so they don’t have to acknowledge

its concerns. He said the trail

group most recently pulled out of

a meeting on February 17.

Said Mrs Millar: “That is not

accurate.

“It was decided that a meeting

with them [the trust] when their

opinion was so entrenched was

not necessarily going to be helpful,

given that there is a process

under way, which the council has

outlined.”

FITNESS: People have until March 11 to decide their favourite

option for a dog agility area in Radley Park, Woolston.

Dog park feedback sought

• By Matt Slaughter

EVERY PERSON and their dog

is being asked for feedback on

the layout of a dog agility area in

Woolston.

The public has until March 11

to tell the city council which of

the two options being proposed

for Radley Park they prefer.

The first option is for the creation

of two new exercise areas,

one for medium to large dogs

and one for small dogs. A new

plant bed and tree for shade have

also been proposed as part of

this option.

Option two is proposing two

new exercise areas, one for medium

to large dogs and one for

small dogs, three new plant beds

providing separation between

the two areas and three new

trees for shade.

Fencing around the new dog

agility area, with two double

gates for access, will also be installed

if this option chosen.

Funding for the fence will

be requested through the city

council’s 2021-2031 Long Term

Plan and installed when funding

is available if option two is

selected.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board will

consider all the feedback given

and will approve the prefered

option.

The dog agility equipment will

be installed by July.

Meeting to discuss board priorities

• By Matt Slaughter

THE PUBLIC can have a say on

the priorities for the Spreydon-

Cashmere 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 on the

city council’s Have Your Say

page online.

A meeting for people to ask

questions to the board about its

priorities will be held tomorrow

from 5.30pm to 7pm at South

Library.

The board’s priorities within

this plan are to promote the

installation of traffic lights at the

intersection of Cashmere, Hoon

Hay and Worsleys Rds, remove

the Barrington Mall Barrington

St entrance/exit and improve

road safety and travel efficiency

on Dyers Pass, Hackthorne and

Cashmere Rds, particularly at

intersections.

The board’s other priorities

are to upgrade the toilets,

changing rooms and sports storage

at Hoon Hay Park, activate

Hoon Hay Community Centre,

plan for an adult playground

somewhere in the Spreydon-

Cashmere Wards and promote

the progression of the cycle

network through these wards.

Board chairwoman Karolin

Potter said the priorities put

forward for feedback have two

key aims; making roads safer

and improving facilities to bring

the community together.

Said Ms Potter: “It’s very

definitely safety issues first and

then it’s community. Even the

Hoon Hay toilets, it sounds very

pedestrian, they are disgusting

and there’s no room for changing

in there. This is about being

able to get more people on that

park doing more things.”

Ms Potter is particularly

excited about the prospect of an

adult playground if people are

supportive of this.

“One of the big issues in our

ward is loneliness.”

She said it will be great and

“if we could get a destination

that was free like the Margaret

Mahy playground but only for

adults.”

The playground could include

fitness equipment like rowing

machines and fun things like

a bucket swing and a flying

Bid to upgrade

school

playground

• By Matt Slaughter

A PROPOSAL for a new

playground at Addington School

has been outlined.

The school’s board of trustees

chairwoman Jo Robertson

presented this to the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community Board. It

is hoped a new playground may

address concerns about the lack of

safe play spaces in the area.

Said Addington School acting

principal Donna Buchanan:

“We believe our school is in the

heart of the community, and by

redeveloping our playground we

would bring a sense of belonging,

a place for people to gather, to

enjoy and spend time together.

“We’re looking at an inclusive

playground so students with

special needs and families of

students with sensory needs

would also be able to be a part of

playing in their community,” she

said.

Meanwhile, the community

board has requested city council

staff advice on the safety of parks

in the Addington area, including

Addington Park and whether

their design complies with the

principles of crime prevention.

Performer’s dream role in dark play

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE OPPORTUNITY to

perform in arguably one of the

most critically successful plays

of the 20th century isn’t one that

comes along often.

That is why Amy Straker from

Woolston jumped at the chance

to play the complex character

of Stella Kowalski in American

playwright Tennessee Williams’

moving masterpiece A Streetcar

Named Desire.

The play is running until

March 14 at The Court Theatre.

It is famous for its exploration of

the struggle women faced in the

1940s to control their future -

along with domestic brutality.

From the moment Straker

saw a low budget version of the

show nearly 17 years ago in the

city, she was drawn to the role of

Stella.

But it was when she saw her

favourite actress Morgana

O’Reilly play Stella in the Silo

Theatre season of the production

in Auckland in 2017, she was

inspired to play the role.

“The stuff I am really drawn to

about her is her amazing ability

to see the good in people and to

find the light in life, I think she

is an essential part of the show,”

she said.

But Straker said Stella is also a

product of her own environment

and is trapped in many ways

in how she is dependent on her

husband Stanley.

The story centres around

Blanche DuBois, played by Claire

Dougan, who arrives in New

Orleans after the fall of her family

home, desperate for a place to

stay.

Her sister Stella takes her in

but tensions flare as Stella’s husband

keeps a brooding eye on his

new sister-in-law.

Straker said it was also the

sisterly connection between

Blanche and Stella that drew her

in more than anything and Dougan

is like a big sister to her.

For a long time, she has been a

favourite for major productions

in the city.

Her talent has seen her perform

in numerous productions

in New Zealand, Australia and

London over the last 13 years

and is the co-creator of Cubbin

Theatre Company.

But she described taking part

in That Bloody Woman, which

debuted at the Christchurch

Arts Festival in 2015, as a “gamechanger”

in her career.

“In the way that I work and my

partner Cameron and I got together

on that show and we now

have a little girl called Poppy, it

literally changed my life”.

Cumnor Tce

one-way

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.

People have until Monday to

share their views on the proposal

online through the city council’s

Have Your Say page.

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.

The cycleway connects

Heathcote with the central

city via Woolston, Opawa and

Phillipstown. The first section

between the central city and The

Tannery is open.

Ward City

councillor

Anne

Galloway

writes about

the lack of

awareness

some drivers have when

driving in residential areas

WITH THE school year under

way, I thought it timely to

remind people to be aware that

there is an influx of children

walking, biking and scootering

around the streets and to be

mindful of them.

An email I recently received

highlighted the concerns many

residents have about the lack of

awareness displayed by some

drivers in the Halswell area.

The writer described numerous

instances of vehicles travelling at

speeds of close to 100km/h in a

50km/h area.

They described the weekends

being particularly bad as quiet

suburban streets were used as

shortcuts to other areas in

Halswell.

Likewise, I am often appalled

by the speed that our fellow

residents drive. There seems to

be a total disregard for those who

may be out and about particularly

children and the elderly.

And we wonder why parents

don’t let their children bike, walk

or scooter to school.

Our city council is focused on

getting 40km/h speed restrictions

in our suburbs and I am

particularly motivated to work

with our local schools to get kids

actively involved in educating

the community about what must

change for them to feel safe.

The city council in partnership

with the police, SADD, and The

Court Theatre also takes driver

education seriously and this year

have produced an impactful

exciting multi-media show Crash

Bash-What’s the Rush?

It will tour secondary schools

over the next few weeks and well

worth a look if you get a chance.

Alongside education, there

must also be enforcement. And

this is where the police must step

up.

One thing we all can do (if you

are able) is to record the number

plate of the speeding car, phone

105 – a police reporting line for

non-emergency and report them.

If enough people do this the

police will respond by targeting

the area.

However, the single most effective

way to ensure safer streets is

for us all to make the conscious

decision to slow down.

Better to be a few minutes

late for work than to face years

of regret because you’ve caused

injury to a child or an elderly

person.

Myra Barry responds to

last week’s article on

Lynette King’s battle to

get her family members’

headstones fixed in Bromley

Cemetery

I FEEL FOR Mrs King and visit

our family graves regularly.

Periodically, the cemetery is a

mess with weeds and other tall

stalks overtaking everywhere.

One day I saw a distressed lady

not far from where I was and on

talking with her found that she

was upset because of the weeds

and so on.

The front entrance is always tidy,

however, the fallen headstones

throughout the cemetery make

me very sad and wishing that

something could be done about

them.

If you take a good look around,

you will see where the lawnmower

has caused damage to some

concrete curbings.

A few years back, I wanted to

put white crosses where there

was nothing but was told by the

council that I was not allowed to.

Perhaps we need to have, like

other cemeteries, a “friends of

Bromley” group that could look

into things?

Canty league players

earn national call-up

• By Jacob Page

SEVEN CANTERBURY rugby

league players have been named

in New Zealand Rugby League’s

16s and 18s squads for the

upcoming season.

Alesana Mailei and Mathew

Logopati from the Linwood

Keas, Dallas Hurrel-Jones

and Reupena Fialele from the

Halswell Hornets and Hornby’s

Felix Fa’atili have been named in

the 16s squad.

Linwood’s Ethan Faitaua and

Halswell’s Montel Peppard-

Peopaati have earned selection in

the 18s squad.

The wider squads were selected

from the NZRL talent development

camp trials that took place

in January.

The camp saw the NZRL bring

25 under 16s and 25 under 18s

as well as 48 aspiring Kiwi Ferns

into camp at St. Peters School,

Cambridge.

The performance camp was

designed for sub-elite players

to enhance skills, introduce

strength and conditioning and

promote education and player

welfare, encouraging those who

dream of playing in the NRL to

stay in New Zealand until they

are 18, allowing for an extra few

TALENT: Linwood’s Ethan Faitaua plays in a trial match last year.

years in familiar surroundings.

The NZRL are awaiting

confirmation on fixtures and

opponents for both teams but

they will likely play together in

October.

Felix was part of the New

Zealand 16s team last year and

is the younger brother of Caius,

who has also earned national

representative honours over the

past two seasons.

Both squads took on Warriors

age-group teams in January

before these official squads were

announced.

• By Jacob Page

VILLA MARIA netball player

Julia Wynands admits even she

is surprised by her latest

selection.

The 17-year-old, who

lives in Huntsbury, is

the only high school

player in the Mainland

Beko League team for

the upcoming season.

The year 13 student

said it was an unexpected

achievement to

start her year.

“I trialled with the team back

in October and made it through

and I’ve been training with them

since but to find out I made the

team was still a shock.

“It’s not something I expected

to achieve this year.

“When I look back and realise

how far I’ve come since I first

started playing in year 3, it’s quite

amazing.”

The goal defence/wing attack

was an integral part of the Villa

Maria team which finished third

at the South Island secondary

school title last September and

finished 14th at nationals a

month later.

She said she has tried to

increase her fitness levels ahead

SPORT

Wynands amazed

at netball selection

Julia Wynands

of her final school year and she

hoped this would help her ease

her into the next step of her

fledgling career,

The Beko League is

seen as a feeder competition

for the ANZ

Premiership and the

Mainland Tactix.

“At Villa we play

against women in the

Christchurch premier 2

competition so that will

help me make the adjustment

but obviously the

standard will be much

higher than what I am used to,”

she said.

Wynands said she was keen to

study psychology next year while

continuing to play netball and

she wanted to do it wearing red

and black.

“I’ve always loved the Mainland

environment and wearing

the red and black throughout the

age-groups so I hope that can

continue.

Her big goal was to play for the

Silver Ferns one day.

• The Netball Mainland

Beko team will play its first

National Netball League

match against Northern

Comets on Sunday April 5.

Feijoa season signals the end of summer

• By Ian Knott

It’s March already, and that

means the start of feijoa

bring an extra dimension to

many sweet dishes

2 cups peeled and chopped feijoas

1 punnet (125g) fresh blueberries

1 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp ground ginger

chopped feijoas, blueberries,

sugar and ground ginger and set

aside.

Prepare the crumble topping.

Put ground almonds, flour,

wholegrain oats and sugar into a

mixing bowl. Stir through melted

Prepare the shortcake. Beat

together butter and sugar until

pale. Beat in the egg. Mix in flour

and baking powder to form a soft

dough. Press dough evenly into

the base of the prepared tin.

Spoon over the prepared fruit

to cover the base. Scatter over the

crumble mix.

Bake for 40-45min until top is

doughnuts

Makes about 14

Ingredients

1¼ cups plain, gluten-free flour

½ tsp baking powder (gf)

Pinch of salt

½ tsp each of ground cinnamon

and mixed spice

3 Tbsp caster sugar

1 egg

3 Tbsp milk

1 Tbsp melted butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

5 medium feijoas, peeled and

diced into 1cm pieces

Vegetable oil

Cinnamon sugar

½ cup caster sugar

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

Directions

Put 5cm of vegetable oil in a

deep, medium-sized saucepan

and heat to 170 deg C on a sugar

thermometer or until a piece of

golden within 30sec.

Combine the sugar and

cinnamon in a shallow dish and set

aside for rolling cooked doughnuts.

Combine all the dry ingredients

in a large bowl. Whisk the egg,

milk, butter and the vanilla together

then stir into the flour along with

the feijoas until well combined.

Carefully drop tablespoons of

the batter into the pan and cook

for about 2min until a golden

colour and puffed, turning

to cook on all sides. Don’t

overcrowd the pan as the oil

SENIOR LIVING

Staying well in an

unhealthy world

Viruses can make us very unwell and some

people may even die from them. However if

we keep ourselves as healthy as possible we can

greatly reduce the chances of becoming unwell.

The Wuhan coronavirus has spread fast and

does appear to be a particularly nasty virus, so

it makes sense to do what we can to improve

our health and immunity. I believe it is our

weakened immune system that is the real threat,

not a virus and if we restore and optimise our

immune system we will have a much better

chance of staying well.

Liquid Olive Leaf Extract (OLE) is the first

amazing natural product I would suggest.

OLE contains powerful compounds including

oleuropein that can destroy invading organisms

(viruses) directly while stopping viruses

replicating and causing disease. OLE can also

help rid the body of long term infections,

bacteria and fungi that are compromising our

immune system. It is also a super antioxidant

that can support stabilized blood sugar, blood

pressure and blood flow.

Researchers have shown Vitamin C to have

powerful antiviral activity against all types

of viruses and to support a healthy immune

system. In one well-controlled, randomized

study, just 200mg/day of vitamin C given to

the elderly resulted in 80% fewer deaths in the

vitamin C group. Dr. Robert F. Cathcart, who

has had extensive experience treating viral

diseases remarked, “I have not seen any flu yet

that was not cured or markedly ameliorated

by massive doses of vitamin C.” Frederick R.

Klenner, MD, chest specialist has said “Some

physicians would stand by and see their patients

die rather than use vitamin C”.

According to Dr. Thomas Levy’s clinical

opinion one gram of properly-produced

and orally-ingested liposomal vitamin C is

as or more effective than 5 to 10 grams of

intravenously given vitamin C. If you want

the best benefits and absorption this is the

way to go. However he also warns many of the

liposomal vitamin C’s he has tested are not true

liposomal products. He guarantees the LivOn

brand is a true liposomal product.

Vitamin D3, zinc and selenium are also vital in

sufficient amounts for a healthy immune system.

These are some of the most important

supplements but our natural health advisers

are always happy to discuss with you a suitable

protocol and other factors that affect the

immune system.

Further information on products, protocols

and correct dosage is available from the

natural health advisers at Marshall’s Health

& Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, PH: (03) 388-5757 – We are always
