New ‘recipe’ to curb

smelly Bromley site

A NEW ‘recipe’ for making

compost at the organics

processing plant in Bromley

could hold the key to reducing

the suburb’s odour issues.

The new recipe has been

formulated over the past three

months at the Living Earth plant

(above).

“As it takes about 12

weeks for material to go

through the composting

process, we won’t know

exactly what impact the

new recipe has had on

the odour situation until

the end of October,’’ said

city council city services general

manager David Adamson

(left).

“However, tests that we

have done show the new

compost recipe gives off

considerably less potentially

odorous gases than the old

compost recipe so there are

promising indicators it will make

a positive difference.

“We appreciate there has not

been a significant change to

odour in the wider area so far

but are hopeful that Bromley

residents will gradually start to

notice the odour issues dissipating

as the new compost recipe

works through the facility.’’

Adamson says new

‘housekeeping’ processes at the

transfer station have significantly

reduced the odour coming from

that facility. The council plans

to survey residents in Bromley

soon about the odour issues and

whether they have noticed an

improvement in the air quality.”

MARK ARNEIL

Candidate, Christchurch Central

Resident of St.Albans, 58 and married with three children.

Accomplished hospitality and recreation & events manager,

with global experience running large complex operations

in both the private and public sectors. Former owner of a

successful hospitality & leisure consulting business.

I am standing for NZ First because:

•On my return after working overseas five years ago, I was struck by the

inequality and a new class of working poor finding it hard to make ends meet

let alone owning a home, the deterioration of public services, and a lack of

investment in infrastructure to keep pace with unfettered population growth.

•I was also appalled by National’s obsession with a low wage workforce

instead of training young people - putting profit before people and the

environment, their lack of compassion towards the elderly and other vulnerable

groups, and their relentless sales of land, state houses, and primary businesses

to foreign interests.

My Priorities:

•A more egalitarian, inclusive and just society in which everyone can provide

for their families with well-paying jobs and affordable housing without being

burdened with a lifetime of debt.

•Environmental, economic and sovereign rights vigorously protected.

•New Zealand as a responsible Pacific leader and protector.

•Accessible and high quality health care.

•Future generations able receive education and training well matched to their potential.

•More government investment in infrastructure needs, research and

development, and job rich sustainable industries.

•Implementing the Provincial Growth Fund to boost regional economies.

•Strong border security with all returnees paying their fair share.

•An immigration policy strictly targeted to genuine labour and skills shortages.

•Always looking after the elderly and all vulnerable groups.

Wetland, walking track planned

A NEW WETLAND area with

walking tracks will be developed

as part of flood protection work

in the Aranui and Bexley area.

The Three Waters

Infrastructure and Environment

Committee voted to accelerate

work on the project in the

Ōtākaro Avon

River Corridor

regeneration

area so that

construction

can get under

way next year.

“This is a

wonderful

Pauline

Cotter

opportunity

to take an

integrated

approach to how we manage

land, water and natural hazards,’’

said councillor Pauline Cotter,

chairwoman of the Three Waters

Infrastructure and Environment

Committee.

“The project that we

approved will do far more

than simply reduce the risk

of flooding; it will have

ecological and environmental

benefits and it will create another

recreational area that people can

enjoy.”

The project involves

building a new stopbank and

stormwater detention basin

Ōtākaro Avon River.

Walking tracks and other

recreational and landscape

features will be included in the

stormwater basin and wetland

area, in keeping with the vision

outlined in the Ōtākaro Avon

River Corridor Regeneration

Plan.

“I’m pleased that we’ve been

able to speed-up the delivery

of this project because it will

demonstrate the way forward in

other parts of the Ōtākaro Avon

River Corridor Regeneration

area where we are going to have

to adapt and learn how to live

with water,’’ Cotter said.

The project was originally

scheduled to begin in the

2024/25 financial year, but now

city council staff plan to have the

detailed design work completed

by the end of this year so that the

work can be tendered early next

year.

Construction costs for the

project are estimated at $12

million. This work will be

funded through the Land

administrator

retires

YVONNE RITCHIE is retiring

after 25 years of looking

after bookings for the Ascot

Community Centre at Queen

Elizabeth II Park.

The city council is now looking

for a new group to manage the

facility.

The community centre is currently

used by the Ascot Petanque

Club, a gentle exercise group,

an older adults’ social group,

the New Brighton Photographic

Club and a scrabble group. Other

groups also hire the community

centre on a casual basis.

Ritchie became bookings administrator

in 1994 when the former

Ascot Golf Course clubrooms

became a community centre and a

committee was formed to manage

the community centre on behalf

of the city council.

She received a certificate of

appreciation from the Coastal–

Burwood Community Board

on September 21 for her years of

service.

Above the Ground and Now Over the Fence

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste

and Kumusta. Greetings to everyone at LCŌ and our wider LCŌ community.

It is very heartening to see the visible signs of progress with our rebuild for

our return to Aldwins Rd to what will be Te Aratai College. Those of us who

have peered through the gate over the past weeks have seen the foundation

work progress to be above ground, and now we see structures over the fence.

It is worth remembering too just how good this rebuild is. As we have said

in the past, the next time that you are in Tūranga, the central library, look up

and look around. The same architect, Carsten Auers of Architectus, who

designed Tūranga, is the architect for our school. Stunning.

Likewise, Southbase Construction is a highly

experienced and expert construction company with

major success in many school redevelopment,

whether totally new or a rebuild.

Shifting a school comes with its own set

of challenges. For a start, there are the

logistics of moving everything from

basketballs to hydrochloric acid, but more

importantly, there is ensuring consistency

of belonging and connection to our school,

and ensuring consistency of learning.

However, these challenges are much

more positive ones to work through than

the challenges of being at school in the

middle of a building site: safety, noise, dust,

temporary buildings, reduced playing areas

and so on. And, as I have said before, our leaving

Aldwins Road means a year comes off the building

programme and there is a saving of a $1m that has been

retained in the programme.

Mr Ken Bye, a former (and legendary) LHS-LC history teacher and Head of

Social Sciences, spoke at the Farewell Celebration Weekend in April 2019 to

the hundreds of past pupils who attended this wonderful weekend to celebrate

and farewell LHS-LC’s first 65 years. During his talk, he used the phrase,

“If only these walls could talk” and this firmly resonated with me. Ken was

absolutely right. A lot of life occurs in a school and as a community resource

and focal point, schools experience all the joys and tragedies that occur in a

community. Our leaving those original school buildings was a significant event

in our school’s history, and fortunately, is one which helps springboard us into a

new era for LC. We leave in order to return, but we leave aware of, and thankful

to, all the people who have gone before and all that they have done for us.

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi engari he toa takitini - My strength is not mine

alone; my strength is from many.

Linwood

College

Te Aratai - Pathway to the Sea

With the rebuild underway, it is now an appropriate time to consider the school’s

name. Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga has gifted a new name to the school and it is

one that our Board of Trustees have whole-heartedly supported. The name is

Te Aratai. In English: pathway to the sea.

The guiding reasons underpinning the name has been outlined by Dianne

Robinson on behalf of Ngāi Tūāhuriri. Dianne is a Mana Whenua Education

Facilitator for Mātauraka Mahaanui:

“Linwood College on Aldwins Road is adjacent to the direct pathway (now

Linwood Ave) to Te Ihutai, “The Avon-Heathcote Estuary” which was part

of a larger fishery used by Ngāi Tūāhuriri. Te Ihutai, was renowned

for its abundance and variety of fish and shellfish, including tuna

(eels), kanakana (lamprey), inaka (whitebait), pātiki (flounder),

and pipi. Several nearby kāinga nohoanga (settlements) took

advantage of the estuary’s rich food resources, with caves

along the base of the nearby foothills providing necessary

shelter. The estuary itself was the gateway to the vast

comprehensive network of wetlands that once extended

throughout the Canterbury region, with the Ōtākaro (Avon)

and Ōpāwaho (Heathcote River) being the primary access

routes. This name links the school to this significant route

and this significant mahinga kai area (Te Ihutai) which was

traditionally owned and used by Kaiapoi Ngāi Tahu (Ngāi

Tūāhuriri) and this relationship is acknowledged as part of the

Claims Settlement Act 1998. The major waterways Ōtākaro and

Ōpāwaho flow into Te Ihutai and the school’s catchment zone

includes schools located along these waterways.”

The Board’s intention is that the school changes its name to Te Aratai

for our return to Aldwins Road, 2022. We acknowledge the proud history of

the name Linwood since 1954, the school’s opening. 2022, and our complete

school rebuild, is the opportunity to create a school name and identity that is

open and inclusive to our wider community we serve and is not just based on

the actual location of the school. And, in a deep irony, Linwood High School-

Linwood College has never actually been in Linwood. Our Aldwins Road site is

actually in Phillipstown.

More information about the name and the legal process for changing a school

name will be forthcoming. We are very grateful to Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga

for their gift to our whānau, to our community of this beautiful and appropriate

name -Te Aratai.

Ngā mihi nui -

Richard Edmundson Tumuaki-Principal

The Turning of the Sod

On Wednesday the 5th of August Linwood College at Ōtākaro

commemorated a milestone in the rebuild process.

It was a particularly brisk but clear Canterbury morning for this important

ceremony. Representing the school were LCŌ’s Head Students Mario

Cvetkoski and Paigan-Lilly Hall as weall as the Watson-Hall whānau,

a family whose tamariki span right through the school’s year levels,

from Year 7 to Year 13.

LCŌ were honoured to have Ngāi Tūāhuriri and Ngāti Wheke

present. Also in attendance were the Ministry of Education, the

Board of Trustees, the rebuild architects from Architectus, the project

management firm RDT Pacific, Southbase Construction and various

school staff.

The event began on Aldwins Road where everyone was greeted by

Corban Te Aika, Ngāi Tūāhuriri, who led everyone onto the site and

blessed the land with karakia. The official sod was dug by our head

students and has been retained for reinstating in the official opening.

The ceremonies ended with the sharing of kai and kōrero.

Rage

by Bob Woodward

After ignoring interview requests for Woodward’s 2018 book Fear, which

described efforts by members of the early Trump administration to contain the

president’s behavior, Trump allowed Woodward to interview him on more than

a dozen occasions for Rage. CNN reports that the book reveals “explosive

accounts” of Trump’s attitude toward the pandemic, Black Lives Matter, and

other events of 2020.

The book also contains reporting from 25 letters between Trump and North

Korea’s Kim Jong Un that will be public for the first time—including one in

which Kim “describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a ‘fantasy

film,’” according to the publishers Simon & Schuster.

The Rodchenkov Affair

How I Brought Down Putin’s Secret Doping Empire

by Grigory rodchenkov

As a leading chemical scientist and Director of the Moscow Anti-Doping

Laboratory, Dr Grigory Rodchenkov was at the forefront of global efforts to

detect drugs cheats in sport. Yet he was simultaneously running the most

elaborate doping scheme in history, helping thousands of athletes and elite

players evade detection. Then the cracks started to show, and Vladimir Putin

sent him a chilling message . . .

Icarus, the Oscar-winning Netflix film, followed Grigory Rodchenkov as he

turned whistleblower, fled Russia and entered the US Witness Protection

Programme. In this explosive memoir he reveals how everything he has

exposed so far — leading to Russia’s double Olympic bans – is merely the

tip of the iceberg.

The Girl From Revolution Road

by Ghazaleh Golbakhsh

A revelatory book of essays by from the New Zealand-Iranian author

The Girl from Revolution Road features a series of evocative essays by

Ghazaleh Golbakhsh, a first-generation Iranian immigrant in New Zealand.

The stories explore homeland, ethnicity and identity — and range from her

childhood in war-torn Iran to making friends in the suburbs of Auckland.

Ghazaleh, who is also a filmmaker and Fullbright scholar, brings her stories to

life through humour and a fresh honesty.

Dark Side of the Brain

by lance Burdett

Lance Burdett started writing this book while he was studying for a diploma in

positive psychology, then something tragic happened - his seventeen-year-old

niece took her own life. From that point on, his world was irreparably changed.

This loss proved to him that adversity can hit anyone at any time, often

unexpectedly. The loss of his niece, combined with Lance’s own experience of

depression spurred him on to share the lessons he’s learned about how the

brain works, knowledge which he’s gathered throughout his years both as a

police negotiator and later as a resilience and wellness specialist. In this book,

he explains how to control your thoughts, how to reduce the impact of negative

emotions, and how to manage your personal wellbeing so that you won’t ‘fall

over’ as he once did. He will also show readers how to identify when somebody

else may be struggling with negative thoughts and how to reach out to them in a

way that’s safe for both of you.

Labour’s recovery plan – ‘it’s

already happening’

People can have confidence in

Labour’s recovery plan because

it is already being implemented,

says Hon Poto Williams, MP for

Christchurch East.

“It’s different from the promises that

political parties sometimes make at

election time because the public can

see that it’s actually happening,” says

Poto Williams.

The Labour-led Government did

not waste time when COVID-19

struck, Poto Williams explained.

The Government immediately

announced a wage subsidy. That

kept bread on the table for workers,

and won the praise of employers

because it kept their businesses

alive.

That was the first part of the

plan. The next part came in the

Budget in May – an allocation of

$3b (that’s 3000 million dollars)

on infrastructure projects that

could be implemented quickly, the

Poto Williams: “Jobs, jobs, jobs.”

‘shovel-ready’ projects. Economists

estimate that these projects will

deliver 20,000 jobs.

Canterbury’s share is $300m.

Many of the projects are standard

infrastructure projects such as

upgrades to the water supply

systems that local councils manage.

Other projects are ‘social’

infrastructure. These include three

Christchurch projects: patient

accommodation and facilities

for the Cancer Society, patient

accommodation for the Bone

Marrow Cancer Trust, and a new

complex for the Youth Health Trust.

These projects, costing $22m in

total, are expected to create more

than 500 jobs.

A package of smaller projects has

been planned for the New Brighton

area. (See page 2 for details.)

All the projects have been selected

on the basis that they are planned

and ready-to-go.

Poto Williams does not gloss over

the pain many are experiencing.

She says she is very much aware of

the impact of COVID-19 on travel,

tourism and hospitality.

“I feel deeply for the workers who

have lost their jobs and the business

owners struggling to survive,” she

says.

Asked to summarise Labour’s

recovery plan in three words, she

says it’s “Jobs, jobs, jobs.”

“I am thankful”

At a street corner meeting, Poto

met a man who came from

Mexico. He is now a citizen and

voting for the first time. Poto

asked how his people were ‘back

home’.

“They are suffering terribly,”

he said. “I am thankful that we

live in a country that has the

resources to care for its people.”

A reminder that we should all

be thankful for Aotearoa New

Zealand.

Some of the 2800 rental units the Government built – at a rate of 18 a week.

Collective recovery for New Brighton -

$7,000,000 for local projects

On 27 July, Hon Poto Williams, in her role as Associate Minister for Greater Christchurch

Regeneration, announced the New Brighton Collective Infrastructure Project

Within the collective there are nine separate projects. Several are to upgrade

existing facilities, some are to replace earthquake-damaged buildings, some

are to complete projects stalled by funding shortfalls, and others are new

ventures.

The nine projects are:

• New Brighton Rugby Club – redevelopment of clubrooms for wider

community use (‘Eastern Hub’).

• Softball diamond and improved drainage of rugby grounds -

Rawhiti Domain.

• New Brighton Surf Club – replacement of old, earthquake damaged

buildings.

• South Brighton Surf Club – replacement of damaged, out-dated club

house.

• Waka Ama – improved facilities at Lower Avon base.

All of the clubs involved are committed to making their new facilities

available for other community groups to use.

• All-weather netball and tennis courts – Rawhiti Domain.

• Native bird sanctuary and woodland play space – Rawhiti Domain.

• South Brighton Tennis Club – upgrade of courts and clubrooms.

• The Bridge Hub, South Brighton – completion of community centre.

Builder explains project at South Brighton Surf Club

Where the idea

came from

Reconstruction work at The Bridge Hub

“One morning I was jogging past

the New Brighton Surf Club, the

Rugby Club, and through the

Rawhiti Domain,” Poto says. “I

realised how each group is working

to provide social opportunities for

our children and to revitalise critical

community facilities. I saw how we

could combine these groups under

the New Brighton Collective and

provide valuable community assets

for the future, creating jobs in the

process. The idea took on and other

groups joined in.

I had been frustrated by the slow,

sporadic recovery of the eastern

suburbs. This funding is a real

boost.”

Rawhiti – children play near canopy of partly built all-weather courts.

New Brighton Rugby Clubrooms – the new ‘Eastern Hub’

To the people of

Christchurch East

Thank you for everything you have

done to help us through this very

hard time. I know that for some of

you it has cost a lot. Jacinda often

reminded us that we were a team of

5 million. You all played your part

and I am grateful to you.

I hope you felt supported by your

Government and by me, your MP.

We supported a lot of people with

the wage subsidy and help for small

business. We doubled the winter

energy payment and we supported

groups that were providing food

and other essentials to those who

were finding it tough.

It’s easy to forget what we achieved

before Covid-19 hit us. There’s a lot

to celebrate. The Families Package

put an extra $75 a week into the

pockets of 384,000 families, Best

Start gave the families of new-borns

an extra $60 a week. We indexed

benefits to inflation and increased

the main benefit by $25 a week.

We increased the minimum wage

to $18.90 and recently announced

the living Wage of $22.10 for all

government-contracted staff.

We passed the Carbon Zero Act, cut

school fees and built 2800 public

rental homes – an average of 18 a

week. But there is still a lot to do.

It’s been a privilege to be your MP

and to serve in a Government led by

Jacinda Ardern. I hope I can count

on your support at this election,

and I hope you will give your party

vote to Labour to enable Jacinda to

continue to lead this country.
