Crisis should not affect

new mega facility

• By Matt Slaughter

UNCERTAINTY hovers over

the yet-to-be-built Hornby mega

facility because of the $33.2 million

city council budget blowout.

THe city council will reassess its

spending priorities in the wake of

the deficit, caused by the Covid-19

crisis.

Community Board

chairman Mike

Mora is concerned

Mike Mora

about the virus’s

impact, but believes

delaying or even

scrapping the mega facility is

unlikely.

THese were two projects

prioritised in the board’s

submission to the city council’s

draft Annual Plan in March.

The city council needs to reevaluate

the priorities outlined by community

boards to account for its

forecasted $33.2 million deficit due

to Covid-19.

The city council now faces a race

against time to have the new draft

plan ready for public feedback from

June 12 to June 29.

Pedestrian bridge started

CONSTRUCTION OF a new pedestrian

bridge connecting the City

Promenade to Cambridge Tce has

begun.

The bridge is costing just over $3

million to build and is being constructed

by Fulton Hogan, who was

awarded the contract by Crown

rebuild agency Ōtākaro Limited.

The bridge is being constructed out

of concrete as it requires less maintenance

than a steel structure, which is

susceptible to corrosion.

Ōtākaro Chief Executive John

Bridgman says it is great to be getting

physical work started so soon after

the move to alert level 3.

“Infrastructure projects are going to

be an important part of our economic

recovery. Fulton Hogan will have

around five to eight people working

at the site for much of the year and

money will also be flowing through to

its suppliers.

“The City Promenade is increasingly

being used by cyclists and pedestrians

for commuting and we want

to see more of that. The 32m x 3.5m

bridge sits on a naturally desirable

crossing point along the Promenade

so it will make the journey easier for

people heading to or from the north

of the city or the recently announced

Catholic Church Precinct,’’ Mr Bridgman

said.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel and councillors

will then have to sign off on the

plan by July 30.

Mr Mora said the potential for the

mega facility project to canned or

delayed is a concern but he thinks it is

unlikely this will happen.

“I am concerned but I’m reasonably

confident that the city council will see

the need.

“The council will be looking at the

budget very very closely and it is going

to be a difficult time.

“I’m hopeful that it will go ahead,

I’m reasonably confident at this stage

that the work is happening. The architect’s

been appointed and all of those

things are happening, so I’m quite

confident that it will [go ahead]. The

money’s in the budget for it, I know it’s

quite a lot but it’s desperately needed,”

he said.

The Hornby mega facility has been a

long time coming after the need for a

pool in the south-west of the city was

first identified in the 2006 Aquatics

Facility Plan. The need for a larger

service centre and library was established

through the South West Area

Plan prior to the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Said Mr Mora: “As far as the wellbeing

of the community, it [the mega

facility project] is something that the

community would be feeling very very

very disappointed if that was to be

lost.”

The board will meet on June 2 to

discuss if and how they will revise the

priorities submitted to the Annual

Plan.

‘Super-volunteer’ loves making himself useful

• By June Peka

WHILE THOUSANDS are

champing at the bit to get back to

work to keep the wolf from the

door, Maurice Taylor’s restless

itch is for a very different reason.

He just loves turning out for

work and making himself useful.

It’s what he’s done almost every

day since he left school 63 years

ago. And while he was paid for

his labours for 50 of those years,

nowadays he’s on the pension

and works for love – and companionship.

Until this Covid-enforced

retirement, Mr Taylor turned up

for duty at the Vinnies charity

store in Papanui three days a

week. He lives in Belfast, and

takes full advantage of the free

bus service for gold card holders,

which drops him nearby.

He first offered his services to

the Stanmore Rd branch of the

same charity.

“It was the only shop I knew

about really. I went in two or

three times and put my name

down. But in the end they said

there wasn’t enough room there

for another person. In that big

shop, really? I think they just

looked at me and thought ‘he’s a

bit past it.’ But there’s still plenty

of life left in some of us old fellas,

even at 78.”

As it turned out he didn’t even

Ms Fisher calls him a supervolunteer.

That’s big praise for a boy who

didn’t do that well at school.

“To be honest I was a bit of a

handful. They didn’t know what

to do with me. I couldn’t spell

and I couldn’t remember stuff.

I was too clever for a special

class but not up there with the

normal class. I fell somewhere

in-between and was always being

tested to see how capable I was.

“The trouble was called short

had it. It’s a fault. That, and the

fact that I just hear what I hear.

I don’t read between the lines.

into trouble for that. Another

thing is that I can find anything

“We are currently all living in a time of unprecedented

uncertainty and disruption. It gives us a time to slow

down and to listen to our thoughts and reflect on what is

happening around us.

Our thoughts are influenced by what we listen to and

we are then challenged by what we assume we need

and to what is important. In every moment we now have

room to reflect and to embrace change. It has given

me the ability to entertain change and to open up my

imagination.

In these paintings I have tried to express this through

subject, colour and movement. I have allowed myself

to dream and to challenge my mind to new choices; to

create images representing energy and fun, expressing

love and dance, risk, and freedom to express. Food

replenishes love and caring. The flower presents beauty

and the art of giving. It is also a time to meet your

shadows, to let your mind play, to have a conversation

with yourself.

Freedom of thought and expression has no boundaries

to ones imagination. The art to create is a great

healer for me and is a way in which I can express and

communicate my thoughts, desires and feelings.

Journey to raise funds for kids’ mental health

• By Bea Gooding

CANTABRIANS keen to make

a difference will be embarking

on a two-day, 1000km journey

later this year raising at least

$1000 towards children’s mental

health.

Avis Budget Cure Kids 1000

tasks teams with sourcing and

decorating cars valued under

$1000, travel on a pre-planned

route in Canterbury and

complete challenges along the

way this September.

Last year at least 10 teams

collectively raised $32,000,

with all funds distributed

to Cure Kid’s research for

children and adolescent mental

health.

One team consists of Josh

Thompson and Sam and

Rachael Butterworth in a

1984 Volkswagen Golf which

resembles a German police

car.

“I was helping out last year

and found it quite fun. I didn’t

take part but this year we’ve

actually made the plan to get

involved and get the car done

up,” Mr Thompson.

“I’m a massive European

car fan, especially Volkswagen.

I’ve always wanted one and

it happened to work out, we

got one from Dunedin within

budget and did something

different as there’s not many

around in this colour.”

Mr Thompson said the event

was likely to turn a few heads

while teams were out and about,

which was a chance to raise

awareness for “a really good

charity.”

This year’s route was yet to

be revealed, but previous

journeys included an overnight

stay at Hanmer Springs,

stopping off at schools and

iconic Canterbury landscapes

to complete challenges such

as sack and egg and spoon

races.

The decision to hold a nonracing

charity rally was inspired

by Avis Budget’s automotive

background providing rental

car services.

Said Mr Thompson: “This

year, we’re hoping to have the

most themed vehicle, but we’ll

see what happens there.”

Toy treats delight quarantined children

HELPING HAND: The CDEM response team workers helped pack the toys for quarantined children at Christchurch hotels. ​

DOZENS OF children

quarantined in Christchurch

hotels were treated to a special

surprise when plenty of rehomed

toys showed up at their

doorsteps.

With a significant number of

children arriving in the city off

repatriation flights, Christchurch

agencies wanted to curb

their boredom during isolation,

delivering donated toys in less

than 24 hours after the first call

was made.

Canterbury Civil Defence

emergency management teamed

up with the Lyttleton Community

House Trust to source,

package and drop off the goodies

to 55 children at four different

hotels.

The Lyttleton trust’s chair, Thea

Mickell, had been helping run the

Meals on Wheels essential service

in recent weeks and swiftly coordinated

last week’s efforts.

“Moving fast and approaching

it simply helps to get things done

to secure toys for the children,”

she said.

“There was a real mix of ages

ranging from babies to 15-yearsold.

Puzzles, baby blankets and

more were all sourced to meet

the variety of needs.”

The toys had been in their

own kind of isolation for several

weeks beforehand and therefore

were “Covid-clean,” with packers

and deliverers wearing the

appropriate protective gear to

ensure safety.

While the toys provided

much-needed entertainment for

the kids, hotel guests used this

as an opportunity to knit for

the cause while passing time in

isolation.

Members of the public also

donated knitting kits and were

delivered to guests wanting to

participate.

I love sharing my 15 years of experience in the

industry with you. In times like these you need

to make sure you’re getting the right advice

from the best people!

Tyres, rims and even

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

They will give you their honest opinion

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

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

to make their excellent products even more

affordable. They are even able to help you

Canterbury basketball’s role player

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

JAMES LISSAMAN has carved

out a niche for himself as a jack

of all trades for Canterbury

Basketball.

The 41-year-old Burwood

resident is the organisation’s

community basketball manager,

but his reach can be felt throughout

all levels of the game in the

region.

Basketball’s popularity has

surged in recent years with 177

weekend teams playing in Canterbury

each weekend last year

compared to just 81 in 2013.

The 2020 season will hopefully

get underway next month at the

earliest if coronavirus restrictions

ease.

“My role is varied,” he said.

“I commentate on games, writing,

website development, photography

and co-ordinating the

Lincoln University scholarship as

well as my competition draws.

“I try to be that contact point

for people and volunteers in our

community.”

In 2006, Lissaman and his

wife, Pina, went over to Indiana

State to do a Masters in Sport

and PE Coaching.

“We went for two years and

coached basketball at a division 3

college and then came back.

Lissaman had a taste of the

organisation a decade ago before

raising a young family drew him

back to teaching.

“Late in 2009 to 2012, I worked

part time as the competitions

manager which was far smaller

of a role than what it is now. I

wasn’t paid particularly well so

I went back to primary teaching

purely for financial reasons.

“I came to the realisation that I

didn’t particularly enjoy teaching

and I was spending more time

there than at home with my oldest

child.”

Fortunately, a new role lured

him back.

“I did that for a year and then

the community coach developer

role came up at Canterbury Basketball.

That was the first time

they’d had that role in a number

of years, so I applied, got that,

and did it for three years.

“The competitions side of

things continued to grow so I

eventually moved around and

organised the draws for that, and

Lori McDaniel came on to do the

coaching role.

“It’s not a nine-to-five role. A

lot of the people are volunteers,

so being that contact point is

important.”

He said variety was stimulating.

“I go into work thinking I’m

going to complete certain tasks

and then other things pop-up

like the lockdown over Covid-19

and what an altered season

would look like for us. Then

it’s working out how much

communication we have with

our members so that we aren’t

firing out stuff to them all the

time, but also giving them

enough clarity that they know

we are giving them what they

need once it is definitive.”

Lissaman said he played all

sorts of sports during his school

days but it was not until he tried

basketball during year 7 at Cathedral

College that he found a

sport to stick at.

“It was the first sport I played

for more than two seasons and

I’ve been playing ever since.”

He said the numbers boom in

the sport has made a big difference.

“The growth of the game is

No 1.

“In terms of boys at high

school we got ahead of rugby two

years ago for the first time.

“The interest in the game has

surged, especially around our

Thomson and Wheelan high

school competition.

“Finals night last year was

packed. The growth over the last

couple of years has been amazing.”

He said the people involved

with basketball in Canterbury

would ensure the sport could

adapt to life after the lockdown.

“We’ve been through the

earthquakes and lost our courts

at QEII. We had to farm our

teams out all over the city because

people understood we had

to adapt to play basketball.

The discussions we’ve had with

people around contact tracing and

sanitisation have been positive.

“It will just come down to what

venues we can use because we do

use school gyms at times.”

He said he remains as passionate

as ever about the work.

“The great thing is that I can

take my kids to school and I can

make the time up later. And just

the variety of the role.

“I didn’t take the role thinking

I would be doing commentating,

live streaming games and

learning website design, but

the ability to learn new skills

and become at least partially

competent in them is something

I’ve really enjoyed.

“It is a job that agrees with me,

that’s for sure.”

Expert hairdressing

and a friendly place for the community

Paula Page in her stylish Burnside salon, Aroha Salon

Hairdresser Paula Page sees her new

Aroha Salon in Kendal Avenue as more

than just a hairdressing business – it’s

also a warm, friendly place for people in

the community, she says.

After recently returning to

Christchurch, Paula opened Aroha

Salon in October 2019, having had

many years of experience in the

industry both with her previous salon,

Clipotec, in Riccarton Road, and on the

Chatham Islands.

The Kendal Avenue premises had

been a hair salon, but when she took

over there was nothing more than

basins left. Paula has transformed the

space with new fittings and a smart

colour scheme – black and white

with splashes of red, and at the same

time has instilled a warm friendly

atmosphere, which she says clients are

enjoying.

One of her whanau, JoAnn Tuuta, is

assisting her in the salon, while JoAnn’s

son Shasha Tuuta Thompson has

created the distinctive salon logo.

Drawing on

her expertise and

experience, Paula

provides a professional

and helpful service

covering all facets

of hairdressing, and

catering for all ages and

personal styles.

“Whoever walks through the door,

my aim is to meet everyone’s needs,” she

says.

She uses the environmentally friendly

product range, LuminArt, which

is made in Australia and provides

protection and conditioning for the hair

with its natural organic ingredients.

Having always enjoyed working with

people, Paula says she learns a lot from

her clients, and is also keen to

help them where she can.

“For example, if someone is

interested in getting into hairdressing,

I can advise and

encourage them,” she says.

“I also like

to help people improve their wellbeing.”

Paula is currently seeking an

experienced hairdresser to rent a chair

at Aroha Salon, so she can expand the

services.

Aroha Salon is located at 162a

Kendal Avenue, Burnside. Opening

hours are Tuesday to Friday 9am to

5pm with a late night on Thursday,

and Saturday 10am-1pm. To book an

appointment, phone 357 0002.

Hanging outside the salon door, these

paua scissors draw attention.

And looks forward to welcoming

previous & new clients
