‘Untidy’

cemetary’s

maintenance

concerns

• By Matt Slaughter

AMBER GAZZARD says

Rutherford St (Woolston)

Cemetery is “going to rack and

ruin” and is overgrown.

But city council community

parks manager Al Hardy says maintenance

happens at the cemetery

every two weeks and measures

are being taken to address “minor

growth on some of the grave tops.”

Southern View reported on

February 25 Lynette King’s family

is concerned with the state of their

relatives’ headstones at Bromley

cemetery and will have to pay a

city council approved contractor if

they want them fixed.

Ms Gazzard’s grandfather

Edward Kynaston and great

grandparents Annie and Hester

Kynaston are buried at Rutherford

St (Woolston) Cemetery.

People do not have to pay the

city council to maintain the

vegetation of its graveyards and

are allowed to do this themselves.

However, Ms Gazzard said they

shouldn’t have to and city council

staff should be doing this themselves

more often.

Said Ms Gazzard: “Years ago,

they [city council staff] planted

shrubs but those shrubs are dead

some of them, on top of the graves.

It looks blimmin untidy.”

Bid for lookout over harbour

• By Matt Slaughter

A $370,000 lookout is being

proposed for the car park

opposite the Sign of the Bellbird

in Kennedys Bush with a view of

Lyttelton Harbour.

The Summit Road Society is

currently consulting the public

on the proposal to decide on a

finalised option which it will put

forward to the city council for

consideration.

It has secured more than

half of the funds needed to

build the lookout through a

combination of its own funds

and a $150,000 grant from the

city council.

Options for gaining the

rest of the funding are being

investigated, including setting

up a Givealittle page in the near

future.

Said the society’s secretary

Marie Gray: “What we’re

proposing is a low stone wall

which is in the style of Harry

Ell’s rest houses . . . some

steps, a lookout platform,

all complemented by native

planting and also disability

access around the side.”

Harry Ell was a city councillor

and member of Parliament in

the early 1900s. He is famous for

his advocacy for the Summit Rd

and conservation work around

the Port Hills.

His grandson John Jameson

founded the Summit Road

Society in 1948 and the lookout

will be named after Mr Jameson

if it is approved.

Mrs Gray said the idea for

a new lookout has existed for

“absolutely years,” but the

society started really pushing

for it after Mr Jameson’s death

in 2018.

“If you stand at the edge of

that car park, you’re just like,

wow, it takes your breath away,

it’s such an amazing view. But

it’s pretty rough up there at the

moment if you’ve been up there.

It’s just a car park.

views over the harbour because

it is an absolutely iconic view,”

she said.

Mrs Gray said naming the

lookout The John Jameson

Lookout, will recognise the work

he and Harry Ell did for the area

around it.

The society has outlined

the proposal in its current

form to the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community Board

and consultation with the

community is ongoing.

In Brief

BOARD TO VARY LOCATIONS

The Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board held its

first-ever meeting at Cashmere

Presbyterian Church, Macmillan

Ave on March 3. Meetings have

been held at Beckenham Service

Centre for the last nine years. The

location of meetings will now

alternate between the service

centre and various different spots

throughout the Spreydon and

Cashmere wards to encourage more

community members to go along.

NO STOPPING RESTRICTIONS

No stopping restrictions will be

installed in Halswell and Hornby.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board approved

installing yellow lines at Flagstaff

Place, Halswell and Branston St,

Hornby. The restrictions were

placed in Flagstaff Place after a

resident expressed concern vehicles

were being parked at the end of the

street which restricts the ability to

turn around. The restrictions were

placed in Branston St are after a

business manager reported safety

concerns.

SIGNAGE FOR PROJECTS

The Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board has asked

for information on work taking

place in streets around south

Christchurch. Its members have

requested that the city council

display more signage explaining

the specifics of this work.

Wastewater

pipeline flows

into place

A 535M wastewater pipeline has

been installed under the Heathcote

River, marking a major milestone

in work on the Lyttelton Harbour

wastewater project.

The pipeline will attach the

Alport Place pump station to the

Heathcote Valley pipeline – signalling

a major step in the project

to connect Lyttelton Harbour’s

wastewater system to the main

Christchurch system.

The installation was completed

early on Sunday, with the pipeline

pulled along Ferry Rd overnight.

The pipeline was drawn

through the tunnel under the

river and Ferry Road roundabout

by a specialist drill rig.

The rig is the only one of its

kind in New Zealand.

The work team will pressure test

the pipe this week to ensure it is

ready for use.

The multi-million dollar project

will put an end to the routine discharge

of treated wastewater into

Lyttelton Harbour.

Contractors working for the

city council had hoped to drill

the tunnel as part of the Lyttelton

wastewater project in January,

however the start date was pushed

out to mid-February.

Nga Puna Wai expansion feedback sought

A PROPOSAL to lease land at

Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub for a

new multi-court indoor sports

centre is open for community

feedback.

Netsal, a company jointly established

by Mainland Football

Federation and the Christchurch

Netball Centre, wants to develop

and operate a 10-court facility

for community-level sport at

Ngā Puna Wai in Halswell and

is seeking a ground lease from

the city council.

People can have their say on

the lease proposal through the

Have Your Say section of the city

council’s website. The deadline

for submissions is April 6.

There will be a drop-in session

where people can learn more

about the lease proposal at Ngā

Puna Wai on March 17 from

4.30pm to 6pm.

At the end of the submission

period, a hearings panel will

consider the public feedback and

make recommendations to the

city council.

The city council believes

Netsal’s proposed facility is in

keeping with the original vision

of Ngā Puna Wai as a hub for

multiple sports, which is why it

is looking to lease it land.

Relapse was the last thing on

Said Mrs Sharpe: “I

“We were devastated

quickly catapulted back

into a world we never

wanted to revisit.’’

It was made harder

by the fact Mrs Sharpe

had lost her mother to

cancer early last year.

But in finding a silver

lining, she said she has been “really

fortunate to have the support

of so many wonderful people.

“I think we all struggle to

rationalise why a child should

have to experience cancer, so

when they do, it seems to be

Tiny baby has goal to be big performer

• By Matt Slaughter

JASMINE BUTCHER was a

very special baby.

She was born 15 weeks early,

weighing only 665gm, and just

clinging on to life.

Her parents Maree and

Norm Butcher were told she was

at high risk of developmental

delays or disability.

But the Heathcote resident has

overcome the odds and now at

19, has dreams of making it big

on New York’s Broadway.

She has just started her second

year of a music degree at Canterbury

University.

In five years, the goal will be

pursuing a musical career in the

United States. Broadway is at the

top of the list.

“One of my dreams since I

was little was to move to the

US and become a singer,

actress or Broadway star. That

dream is still very alive today,”

she said.

“Whether I do ever make it to

the US or whether I just start off

doing some shows for more local

places like Showbiz [Christchurch]

or The Court Theatre,

anything to achieve my dreams

would be amazing.”

From when Jasmine was threeand-a-half

months old until

she was four, she attended the

Champion Centre at Burwood

Hospital. The centre provides

early intervention services for

children with significant developmental

delays and disabilities

up to the age of six.

Jasmine says it played a significant

part in getting her ready for

school.

“I feel like the centre definitely

helped me to catch up with my

peers because like, I was always

a little bit, well not behind but,

INSPIRATION: Jasmine Butcher

has gone from weighing

665gm at birth to becoming a

performing on Broadway.

like, a couple of steps behind

everybody else.

“By the time I was at primary

school I was, like, ahead of everyone

else,” she said.

Jasmine’s sessions at the

centre involved both group

and one-on-one work.

She struggled with matching

things such as patterns and pairs

but was able to use computer

software that teaches basic skills

in reading, identifying shapes,

matching objects and letters,

counting and using a computer

mouse.

Said Jasmine: “If I hadn’t gone

through all that, I probably

wouldn’t be where I am today,

you know. I wouldn’t have been

able to catch up on things and

wouldn’t have probably found

school as easy as what I did. I

probably would have struggled

more.”

She took up singing, keyboard

lessons, started tap and jazz

dancing and piano lessons after

primary school.

Mrs Butcher credits the Champion

Centre as a big factor in

Jasmine’s progress.

“By the time she started primary

school, she hit the ground

running and was ahead of other

kids,” she said.

About 100 children

currently attend intensive

weekly programmes at the

centre in Burwood, with a

further 89 children attending

less frequently as part of a

monitoring service for children

born prematurely.

Playcentre

close to

reopening

Woolston Playcentre

communications advisor

Hana Phillpotts writes of the

centre reopening on Portman

St soon.

Three and a half years ago,

this playcentre and their families

packed up and relocated so that

a rebuild of the centre could be

completed.

Linwood Playcentre opened its

doors to us during this time and

have been so hospitable enabling

us to remain a strong and fully

functioning playcentre family.

After a disappointing shift in

the plan from insurers, the wait

is finally over and our fully refurbished

playcentre building is sitting

smartly on a brand-new foundation

on Portman St, Woolston with

every modern amenity inside,

including a quiet nursery area and

updated kitchen.

We will be back on site this

autumn – those interested should

keep tabs on our Facebook page

Woolston Playcentre for updates on

the opening date, activities planned

and answers to other queries.

We will also now have a modern

open plan learning space that

is adjacent to regenerating native

reserve at the end of a cul de sac

road and a revamped outdoor

play area under the shade of an

established oak tree.

We will be able welcome families

from all around Woolston,

Opawa, Ferrymead Heathcote,

Redcliffs and Sumner for playbased

early childhood education

in our new and improved centre.

Woolston Playcentre was

founded in 1967. We offer early

childhood education to children

up to six-years-old and enjoy

reciprocal relationships with our

local community.

We follow the Playcentre

Aotearoa’s philosophy and guidelines

which emphasise the importance

of child-led learning and

affirm whānau as the first and

best educators of their tamariki,

so that families are strengthened

and communities enriched.

View hindered by dumped rubbish

ground.

It started off with smaller litter

sports and events Nigel Cox said

the party will be the highlight of

the swim season for dog owners.

“More than 300 dogs made

the most of the chance to leap

into Waltham Pool last year,

so we knew that owners would

want their dogs to wade into the

excitement again this month.

“You can see the benefits of a

dog-friendly day out in a fresh

environment.

LITTER: The problem of people dumping rubbish at the top of

who lives on Summit Rd.

He said there are a lot of people

walking on Summit Rd who pick

up rubbish and ask to use his

rubbish bin.

“It’s totally fine that [visitors]

use my bin, but you can see how

many people worry about it.”

“Dog owners usually leave with

a big smile while their pets have a

satisfied grin after a big swim. It

is a day of pooch pandemonium

streets maintenance Mark Pinner

said staff are aware of the

problem.

“We have received three reports

in the past three days. Two of

these were to report builder waste

and one for household waste.”

Before this, he said staff

had only received and actioned

but most dogs are on their best

behaviour.

“We have just a few rules – one

pet per owner and only dogs rule

only one report in the past 12

months.

“There are no public bins in the

area, and waste, once identified,

is typically removed within two

days.”

He said this type of dumping

is classed as ‘fly-tipping’ and

individuals face prosecution if

caught. Fines range between

$100 and $400 depending on

how much is dumped and what it

contains.

“We encourage the public to

report any such issues. If people

can identify anyone responsible,

we request they provide as much

information as possible so that

we can follow up with them.”

Mt Pleasant is not the only

place which has been treated as a

tip this year.

It was reported in February

that rubbish had been spilling out

of bins at Taylors Mistake Beach

onto the ground and in January,

there were issues with people

dumping green waste at public

areas in Diamond Harbour.

in the pool.

“It is also a great opportunity to

celebrate the end of the summer

season before we drain the pool

in preparation for the reopening

later this year,” Mr Cox said.

The Pooch Pool Party will be

split into two sessions based on

the size of dogs. The session for

small to medium-sized dogs

(up to 56 centimetres tall) will

be held from 10am to noon and

the other for larger dogs (56

centimetres and taller) will go

from 1pm to 3pm.

City council animal

management staff will be

on hand to microchip all

Christchurch-registered dogs at

no cost to owners.

The event is sponsored by Jim’s

Dog Wash.

Young inventors win award

It’s a product that really should exist but

doesn’t, so a group of Year 13 students

– Luisa Birkenhake, Josh Dalley, Wayo

Whyte and Riley Flanagan – challenged

themselves to make it happen.

Pivot Tape combines two sporting

necessities – strapping tape and ice

packs – to form an instant ice-cold sports

strapping tape that the teenagers say will

enable athletes to recover more quickly.

The idea, born on the sideline of a

sports field, took about a year of trial

and error, and troubleshooting before

the students launched it on their website

and started distributing to a handful of

sports stores.

It won the students the Company of

the Year Award at the Young Enterprise

Scheme (YES) national competition,

beating more than 1000 teams in a

“Dragons’ Den” style showdown to win

$5000, last December.

Mr Matt Benassi, their Business

Studies teacher, won the scheme’s Most

1 cups chopped tomatoes

1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

Scallops cook quickly and if

they’re overcooked, they will

they’re nicely browned. Once

browned on both sides, remove

them to a plate.

Add zucchini noodles to the

parsley. Enjoy!

Tyres, rims and even

great coffee

Word of mouth is the best

recommendation for any business,

and there is a raft of customers happy

to recommend JCM Direct Tyres in

Middleton. The independent, family-owned

and operated business supplies tyres, mags

and rims and it is clear from their feedback

that they provide ‘outstanding customer

service,’ ‘really know what they are doing,’

and even provide ‘tasty coffee.’

Reviews like these are hard-won, with

the emphasis being on making sure they go

the extra mile to really meet the needs of

the client. As an independent dealer, they

are not tied to a specific brand. Instead,

they will look at your vehicle, your budget

and your driving style to provide you with

what you need instead of what the franchise

wants you to have. This can be brand

new tyres such as Pirelli, Continental, GT

Radial, Toyo and Nankang, or high end,

almost-new second hand tyres in mint

condition, often the same brand names as

the new options. The JCM team wants to

know their customers are leaving them with

their vehicles, from caravans to utes, that

are safe on the roads.

They will give you their honest opinion

and expertise about what you need too.

It could be more cost effective in the long

run to spend a little more a quality tyre and

reduce the risk of punctures on the Garden

City’s rebuild roads, and if you do have a

puncture, they can repair it quickly and

efficiently.

It is not only tyres – they supply rims

from the 1930s to the present day. If you

are lucky enough to own a classic vehicle,

you will know how difficult it can be to find

authentic parts, and the JCM team will help

you source what you need.

They also provide alloy wheels, spare

wheels plus wheel and tyre combo packages

to make their excellent products even more

affordable. They are even able to help you

with finance options.

Open six days a week, you can find

them at 8c Birmingham Drive on the

corner with Hands Road. Check them

out on Facebook.com/JCMDirect, or visit

JCMDirect.co.nz to see what their family

can do to help your family.

REAL ESTATE

Rural tranquility city convenience

81 Downies Road, Halswell

Auction: Thursday 26th March 2020 (Unless Sold Prior)

5 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 3 car garage | 6 off-street carparks | Listing number: BE193479

For those who dream of the good

life with the benefits of modern

conveniences this ideally located

property is just the answer!

Located on the rural fringe of the

city you are only 15 minutes from the

city centre and literally just a short

drive from the local shopping, primary

school, community centre in Longhurst.

The main house features a large

open plan living room along with

three double bedrooms. The master

bedroom is truly luxurious with a walkin

wardrobe that you can lose yourself

in plus an ensuite that is spacious and

designed to pamper.

Smartwood joinery for windows and

doors, with low E and argon gas and

lovely jarrah floors complement this

beautiful home..

Details such as fully tiled showers

and underfloor heating add to your

enjoyment. Even the garage is fully

insulated, double glazed and has

underfloor heating in the workshop

area. An opportunity to perhaps convert

part of the triple garage into another

room should this be needed.

The two-bedroom cottage was built

in 2015 and this is ideal for extended

family - close by but still having their

own privacy and garden views. Both

properties have a log-burner installed

for the winter months.

Extensive planting has been done,

with two orchards just coming in to

be harvested soon. Large trees provide

shelter belts and a tiled entertainment

area for barbecues with family and

friends completes the picture.

Auction: Thursday 26th March 2020

from 12:00pm Harcourts Grenadier 98

CANTERBURY

FOAM CONCRETE

The Canterbury Foam Concrete story started in the

mid 90s as a pet project, when Graeme Martin, founder

of Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd, recognized that

Foamcrete, due to its flowable nature, would be an

ideal product for sealing damp ground under houses.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd have been manufacturing and installing light weight

Foam Concrete in Christchurch for over 20 years. “Thermofill” is a trademark name for

a system of sealing the ground beneath your wooden floor home to stop rising damp.

Rising damp can be a major contributor to poor health causing respiratory issues like

asthma. A recent report published in an International Medical Journal stated that

“Almost 20 percent of hospital admissions of young children with acute respiratory

infections could be prevented if their houses were free from damp and mould”

Independent tests have shown that up to 40 litres of moisture can rise off the ground

every 24 hours. The moisture will often manifest in mould, mildew, musty smells,

condensation and high RH values inside the house.

While insulation is important, it has long been recognised that it is dampness that is

the real villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes Standards introduced by the

government effective from the 1st July 2019 now has a requirement to install ground

moisture barriers, a key element in the armoury to fight moisture in the home.

Insulation standards have been common place for many years but up until now, very

little importance has been given to controlling moisture from the ground – and yet

this is arguably one of the most important areas to deal with first. The vast majority

of homes built up until the 1970’s throughout New Zealand are of timber floor

construction and while most will have a crawl space under the floor, many will not.

Since the introduction of the new legislation on 1 July 2019, properties with an

enclosed sub floor space must also have a “Ground Moisture Barrier”.

Canterbury Foam Concrete

carried out many hundreds

of ground sealing jobs in the

early years.

Canterbury Foam Concrete was also

involved in filling under runners and

redundant pipes in the early days as it

is still to this day. This type of work has

really accelerated in recent years after

the Christchurch earthquake period

as Foam Concrete has proved to be an

ideal, uniquely flowable, fast, efficient,

and cost effective product, to fill voids

under relevelled foundations, as well as

foundations on piles which have cavities

that have formed after earthquake

settlement.

Moisture Ingress and

Drainage - GENERAL.

In best practice, properties must have

efficient drainage for the removal of

storm water, surface water and ground

water. The drainage system includes

gutters, down pipes and drains for

the removal of water from the roof.

The Healthy Homes Act Guidelines

recommends that ground surfaces should

slope away from the foundation so that

rain water doesn’t pond under the floor.
