Drink driving: How the numbers

stack up in eastern suburbs

Breath

and blood alcohol

offences by police station

between 2017 and 2019

• By Matt Slaughter

POLICE CHARGED 658 people

with drink driving offences in

the eastern suburbs between

2017 and 2019.

An Official Information Act

request by Pegasus Post has

revealed out of eight areas in

Christchurch and Banks Peninsula,

the New Brighton Police

Station coverage area sits fourth

on the list of areas where the

most people have been charged

for being over the legal breath

and blood alcohol limits in this

time period.

Christchurch central is first

on this list, with officers there

charging 1993 drivers with such

offences, Papanui is second with

915 and south Christchurch sits

third with 675.

The legal breath alcohol limit

in New Zealand is 250mcg/l.

The highest breath alcohol

readings recorded between 2017

and 2019 in the New Brighton

area were 1469mcg/l in 2017 and

1469mcg/l and 1304mcg/l in

2018.

There were 4812 excess breath

and blood alcohol offences in

Christchurch between 2017 and

2019.

The number of drink driving

offences decreased over this

three year period. There were

1742 offences in 2017, 1539

offences in 2018 and 1531 in

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Greg Cottam

said these statistics are promising

but any drink driving at all

is too much.

back to the fact that any drink

driving is one too many and the

potential for serious harm for

other road users is unacceptable.

We have a no-tolerance policy

for alcohol and one is one too

many.”

Meanwhile, in July a police

clampdown on drink driving

saw them stop and breath test

14042 Canterbury motorists.

Of these, 68 were over the legal

breath alcohol limit.

They trialled micro-checkpoints

as part of this, which

require as few as one police car

and officer to set up and carry

out.

Vandals hit gym

• By Matt Slaughter

VANDALS have been

targeting the old

Christchurch School of

Gymnastics building in

North New Brighton.

Sergeant Jim Currie said in

the last few weeks police have

received reports of windows

of the building on Travis Rd

being broken and graffiti

being drawn on it. Investigations

are taking place into

this.

Said Currie: “We’ve been

having a few issues around

the old school of gymnastics

at QEII [Park]. There’s been

a bit of vandalism and things

going on there over the last

few days and weekends . . .

broken windows and that

sort of thing.”

The building is no longer

used by the school of gymnastics,

which has opened

a new one nearby on Mark

Treffers Drive.

However, Currie said the

old building is used to store

equipment used in New

Brighton’s Santa parade and

will become Santa’s grotto at

Christmas time.

“We want to make sure

that it [the old building] is

that the community can

benefit from that Santa’s

The city council will start

a 12-month trial soon to

map and track graffiti using

technology to help identify

offenders and cut costs to

ratepayers.

The Smart Christchurch

Graffiti Recognition trial will

track graffiti activity using

data from the public and

Wait for palm tree

solution continues

• By Louis Day

THE WAIT goes on for a resolution

to be reached for a potentially

precariously placed palm tree.

There have been concerns about the

Palm Tree in the roundabout at the

intersection of Laguna Gardens and

Palm Dr for about six years.

The Palm Tree is situated within a

planter box which has cracks along

the side of it. City council staff believe

this is likely to be caused by the

growth of the roots.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board requested the city council

rebuild the planter box the palm tree

sits within. This would cost about

$40,000.

However, the city council decided

to defer the decision to its urban development

and transport committee

to assess what the best way forward

for the tree was.

Said community board chairwoman

Emma Norrish: “I guess it is a bit

frustrating that it did get handed over

to that committee, but if something

happens from it, that would certainly

be a positive. The sooner the better.”

Other options in resolving the

long-standing issue are to repair the

existing planter boxes costing $9000,

replacing the planter wall with a concrete

wall costing $28,000 or removal

of the palm and planter box which

would amount to a cost of $38,000.

Another option was to remove

planter box and palm and replant the

tree to ground level. However, council

officials said this option should not be

pursued as it would compromise the

structural integrity of the tree.

Refresh for Art-omat

Poto

Williams

for Christchurch East

• By Bea Gooding

NOT ONLY has New

Brighton’s Art-omat found a

new home, but the tiny hut

will also soon be getting a

facelift.

The city council’s Enliven

Places Programme awarded

custodianship of the Art-omat

to organisation Life in Vacant

Spaces, who work with landowners

and project partners

to bring life back into empty

spaces across the city.

The Art-omat has now

shifted to 101 Brighton Mall

and was originally opened as

a mini art gallery, where local

artists could display their work

for purchase, making art more

accessible in a creative way.

Said LiVS director Rachael

Shiels: “We’re really excited

to have the opportunity to

activate this space for the local

New Brighton community. It’s

nice to see it being refreshed.”

The Art-omat was one of

five tiny huts installed by the

city council in a bid to liven up

New Brighton’s public spaces

– each a play on the iconic

English seaside beach hut.

• By Bea Gooding

A SCHEME to provide

computers to community

organisations in need across

the city has proven popular,

with digital needs increasing

due to Covid-19.

The city council’s Computers

to the Community Scheme

offers computers for free to

not-for-profit groups to help

them deliver services more

efficiently.

Excluding the lockdown, between

July 2019 and June this

year, 220 laptops and desktops

were distributed to organisations,

such as St Luke’s Samoan

Church, the Wainoni

Avonside Community Services

Trust and the New Brighton

NEW BEGINNINGS: Rachael Shiels, director of Life in

Vacant Spaces, who have some new ideas up their

sleeves for the New Brighton Art-omat.

Other huts included a mini

marae, a shell chapel and a

unique viewing point of New

Brighton Beach.

Now that the Art-omat was

under the management of

LiVS, Shiels said that its use

was up to the community to

decide, but the organisation

was on hand to provide funding

and extra support to get

projects off the ground.

Their initial idea for the hut

was to use it as another exhibition

space to honour the original

designers, but that could

change depending on what the

community wanted to see.

Among those expressing

interest was the New Brighton

Art Gallery, but the organisation

was seeking more ideas,

Community Gardens.

Charity Kilmarnock

Enterprises employs people

with intellectual disabilities to

provide outsourcing solutions

for businesses, such as packaging

or refurbishing needs and

received four desktops and

laptops.

Said chief executive Michael

Toothill: “We haven’t had the

budget to purchase new ones

ourselves, and we needed to

find an alternative way to save

costs.

“We started to sell ecofriendly

cleaning products and

needed equipment to run the

dispatch side of things. We had

a gap to fill in business because

we refurbished headsets for

Air New Zealand’s international

flights, but that’s gone

on hold.

“Directly for us, it ensures

we can retain jobs and has

been a huge benefit to our

employees.”

In the past few months, the

city council noted an increase

in requests from groups

working with multi-cultural

communities and have allocated

about 50 computers to

organisations with a variety of

cultural backgrounds.

City council head of community

support, governance

and partnerships John Filsell

said the cost associated with

purchasing the technology was

often a barrier.

Said Filsell: “Covid-19 highlighted

the need and use of

such as a potential space for

live performances.

“We’re excited to hear people’s

ideas for this space. Our

intention is to change things

up every four to eight weeks to

keep it fresh,” she said.

“Art is so subjective and you

can’t make everyone happy, so

we’ll keep changing things up

the explore other ideas.”

The new Art-omat is anticipated

to benefit the New

Brighton community by enabling

ongoing use of the hub

and celebrated the local arts.

“Vacant spaces can be a

real eyesore and can attract

vandalism. The changes show

interest and freshness in the

area and that it’s being cared

for, loved and utilised.”

LiVS will manage the site for

one year and may continuing

doing so beyond that, depending

on this year’s success.

In addition to the Art-omat,

they managed the East x East

project in the Red Zone – a

space filled with temporary

art, clubs and events to utilise

the area while plans for future

plans and development for the

space are completed.

technology to feel connected,

to keep in touch with friends

and family both overseas and

within New Zealand to get

information, continuing education

and support the ability

to continue to work.

“Some groups have

made the computers available

to those who do not have

them, or used them to

provide information and

support to their communities

by building up an electronic

network.’’

Meeting demand was not

a major issue but at times

the city council experienced

a higher demand which

meant some groups had to

wait longer to receive their

computers.

To the people of

Christchurch East

Thank you for being part

of the great team that

eliminated COVID-19. It’s

going to take another team

effort to rebuild the economy,

but we’ve made a start:

• Wage subsidy to support

workers and businesses.

• Free trades training for new

jobs – for people of all ages.

• Creating jobs by building

• Interest-free loans for

businesses

• Record increase in health

• Permanently increased

Throughout the crisis,

to one another. Let’s build

to build a better, fairer

Foodbank adapts to

meet pandemic demands

Myriad groups help

keep our community

moving. Reporter

Bea Gooding

speaks to Foodbank

Canterbury cofounders

John and

Janice Milligan about

how the charity

has adapted to

support vulnerable

Cantabrians

Could you tell me a bit

about what Foodbank

Canterbury does?

Foodbank Canterbury

is a secular, independent

non-faith based, nonpolitically

aligned, nonactivist

controlled food

rescue organisation with a

singular mission in mind –

to fight hunger, feed hope

and reduce food waste.

Under “normal”

times, FBC rescues two

tonnes of food per day

which resources over

5800 meals daily for the

vulnerable and at-risk in

the Canterbury, South

Canterbury and West

Coast regions.

We are a 100 per cent

not-for-profit organisation

dealing with over 135

agencies throughout

Christchurch alone –

everyone from The City

Mission, St Vinnies, the

maraes and other iwi

organisations, Pasifika

groups, Women’s Refuges,

Community Centres and

food pantries, school

districts etc.

What kind of impact

does your charity have

on the environment and

vulnerable Cantabrians?

Collecting and

distributing nearly 1.8

million meals worth of

food each year through

a network of partner

programs gives us a stark

understanding of the

everyday realities of food

insecurity.

On a per-volume basis,

FBC is the largest food

relief organisation in the

South Island, operating

on a scale that makes it

crucial to the work of the

front-line charities who are

feeding vulnerable New

Zealanders.

FBC provides more

than 70 per cent of the

food rescued for food

relief organisations South

Island-wide.

Our volunteers are vital

to our success and have

contributed some 65,000

hours of their time in the

last twelve months. To

us, that’s worth over $1.6

million.

Foodbank represents

a ‘triple-win’ for

SURGE: Co-founder and general manager Janice

Milligan, of Foodbank Canterbury, where demand

has increased 106 per cent since the beginning

of this year.

our communities –

reducing food wastage

and protecting the

environment; providing

food relief to hungry and

vulnerable people; and

strengthening our society

through collaboration

with local charities and

volunteerism.

What issues are the

charity currently facing

in the wake of Covid-19?

In the current

Covid-19 situation,

we are processing and

redistributing just on 100

tonnes of food product

monthly – resourcing

around 9,000 meals per

day. That is an increase

of 106 per cent since the

beginning of 2020.

We are under no

illusions about the

challenge we are

embracing. The current

pandemic situation has

made us at FBC realise this

even more. Feeding the

hungry is

paramount. We are

feeding people who have

never put their hand up in

need before, and the scary

thing is that we do not

know where we are going.

There is no template.

In spite of our suppliers

– the supermarkets,

manufacturers,

distributors, growers

and farmers being very

supportive, FBC is still

having to raise funding to

buy-in staple food

products to supplement

what we distribute.

We are also concerned

that our rural areas are not

being served and we plan

to resolve this as soon as

funding is available.

We have seen over the

past months, an explosion

of altruism and cooperation.

Now we need to

move forward in not just

a spirit of collaboration,

but in a realistic act of

collaboration to simply

achieve.

At FBC our byline is

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

“fighting hunger – feeding

Hope.”

It is this hope that impels

us to act.

How has the charity

adapted to these changes

caused by the pandemic?

In order to fill the gaps

in demand left by the more

tradition food pantries

serving individuals, FBC

is introducing the Hunger

Action Team programme

in NZ.

By introducing HATs

Foodbank Aotearoa New

Zealand/Canterbury, it

changes what it means to

be a food bank. This is an

innovation driven by the

current environment.

HATs are groups

of individuals and

organisations working

in collaboration to solve

hunger in a designated

community. They are

coalitions that bring

people from across a

community together to

develop local solutions to

hunger, supplying 10 day,

two-week family packages

of nutritious food to

vulnerable whanau.

Starting in Christchurch

with initial collaboration

with FBC, He Waka

Tapu and Rotary

International, HATs will

be working in towns and

neighbourhoods across the

region – leveraging local

resources and relationships

to raise awareness about

hunger, connect services to

make it easier for people to

get help, and launch new

initiatives that strengthen

each community’s capacity

to meet local needs.

This comprehensive

solution to hunger requires

seeking out new avenues of

collaboration to create the

greatest possible impact.

Currently, our social

media brings in around 15

contacts per day up from

maybe 8 per month pre-

Covid-19. He Waka Tapu

is experiencing an even

greater level.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Natural support

for healthy joints

Joint issues will affect most of us at some

time. They can show up in any joint such

as in your neck, back, shoulders, elbows,

wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet.

Cartilage is the protective surfaces

between moving bones that allows them

to move freely. It is constantly worn away

and needs to be rebuilt on a constant

basis. This repair process slows down for

most of us as we age. The result is not

enough cartilage in some joints causing

the joint function to be less smooth. This

is the most common form of arthritis,

called osteoarthritis, and it leads to

inflammation, pain, stiffness and reduced

mobility of the joint.

Joint pain can also be a factor in falls.

Generally joints with the most use or stress

show problems first.

Many people seek pain relief from

their doctor. The usual prescription is

non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs,

or NSAIDs, which offer pain relief but

do nothing to stop the progression of the

arthritis.

According to the British Journal

of General Practice, NSAIDs are not

recommended for long term use and are

responsible for 30% of hospital admissions,

mainly due to internal bleeding, heart

attack, stroke and renal damage. Research

shows all NSAIDs double the risk of

hospitalization due to heart failure.

Supporting the body with the right

- WE ARE ALWAYS HAPPY TO HELP! -

supplementary nutrients has been found

to be highly beneficial in supporting joint

health for many people.

A local Christchurch company, Kiwi

Natural Health or KNH, has produced an

advanced, high-potency formula called

“Joint Care Plus” to support healthy joint

function.

Inflammation of joints can cause

pain and slows the healing process.

Joint Care Plus contains turmeric,

ginger and black pepper to help reduce

inflammation and pain, and enhance

digestion and absorption of its nutrients.

The formula also contains nutrients that

have been researched to support joint

health, including boron, selenium, zinc,

manganese, proline and MSM, as well

as the highly researched glucosamine

sulfate potassium chloride complex, and

News

East’s well-being

a focus for board

COMMUNITY wellbeing

is top of mind on a

plan that will also focus

on improving roads and

footpaths, and protecting

and maintaining

biodiversity and recreation.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board’s priorities plan for

2020-22 outlines a raft of

ideas to tidy and improve

the inner city east suburbs.

Communities in the

south-east have been

without a swimming pool

since the Woolston Pool

closed in 2009, but this

will change when Te Pou

Toetoe is finished.

It sits alongside Linwood

Park, and the board wants

both developed as a coherent

whole, especially when it

comes to parking. It wants

an integrated plan for the

park, and better connection

with Linwood College.

The board says it

will advocate for the

continuation of a

Phillipstown Community

Hub, and for Lancaster

Park to be developed

alongside the community.

Broken and damaged

footpaths were affecting

people with mobility

issues, the elderly, and

people using wheelchairs

and pushchairs. The

board would push to get

things fixed in response to

community concern, and

for discretionary funding

to make it happen.

It is also keen to “green

the concrete jungle”

by identifying suitable

locations for street-planting

on berms and traffic

islands, and to activate the

Greening the East Working

Party to develop a spatial

plan for the area.

Funds would be sought

to make this a pilot project,

to develop the plan, and to

provide for work and land

purchases.

Light industrial

growth made Bromley

a busier place, and the

board wants the local

traffic management plan

reviewed ahead of a plan

to deal with current issues.

It is keen for speeds to

drop and for heavy traffic

to be diverted on to nonresidential

roads.

It notes some years

have passed since the

initial development of the

suburban centres Master

Plans for Linwood Village,

Sumner Village, Ferry Rd

and Main Rd. These may

need to be updated.

The board wants the

amenity and ecology of

the Heathcote River to

improve. It has significant

pollution issues, and

the raft of projects

seeking to improve its

amenity sometimes seem

uncoordinated.

Climate change will

force changes on the area

as, over time, it deals with

sea level rise and coastal

inundation.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust,

a non-profit organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of New Zealand’s

most important coastal wetlands. Each week she introduces a new bird

found in the estuary. Her column aims to raise the understanding of the

values and uniqueness of the area.

Hungry oystercatcher

eats night and day

DECLINING: The black oystercatcher eats day and

night and can be seen on the mudflats looking

for cockles, crabs and marine worms.

THE BLACK oystercatcher

or toreapango with its

bright orange bill, red

eye and orange eye ring

is the “cousin’ of the pied

oystercatcher, which are

black and white. They

are only found in New

Zealand, adding to the

importance of a healthy

estuary to ensure their

survival.

Like its cousin, this everhungry

bird, eats day and

night and can be seen on

the mudflats busily ‘jogging

to and fro’ looking for

cockles, crabs and marine

worms.

Having adapted

somewhat to our urban

environment it also feeds

on earthworms and grubs

in the Linwood Paddocks

and the McCormacks Bay

sport field.

They like their nest

simple; making a small

indent in dirt, dunes or

on the beach among a few

sticks or a little vegetation.

This method makes eggs

and chicks extremely easy

victims from human activities

such as walkers, fourwheel-drive

vehicles and

motor-cycles. They will try

to defend their nest fiercely

though, so if you see a pair

of black oystercatchers

running around erratically

or even flying up in the air

just above you making a

lot of noise, then know that

they are protecting eggs

or chicks – so please, walk

away and stay well clear of

them.

Last year just over 130

of these birds have been

counted in and around our

estuary which, like with

PHOTO: BRIAN BETTS ​

many other bird species in

and around our estuary, is

a vast number of the entire

world population.

Sadly, numbers are declining,

so how can we help

these birds thrive? Keep

dogs on the lead when

walking near the estuary as

to not disturb them while

feeding or resting.

Do not gather shellfish

from the mudflats as we

need to ensure large numbers

of cockles are present

for the birds.

Gathering also disturbs

the birds from feeding.

CALLS HAVE been made to

stop rates increases in response

to the Covid-19 crisis.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this

year.

The city council is proposing

an average rates increase of 4.65

per cent across all ratepayers in

this year’s Draft Annual Plan

which is currently under public

consultation until April 5 and

will be finalised before July 1.

The 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.
