New ‘recipe’ to curb<br />

smelly Bromley site<br />

A NEW ‘recipe’ for making<br />

compost at the organics<br />

processing plant in Bromley<br />

could hold the key to reducing<br />

the suburb’s odour issues.<br />

The new recipe has been<br />

formulated over the past three<br />

months at the Living Earth plant<br />

(above).<br />

“As it takes about 12<br />

weeks for material to go<br />

through the composting<br />

process, we won’t know<br />

exactly what impact the<br />

new recipe has had on<br />

the odour situation until<br />

the end of <strong>October</strong>,’’ said<br />

city council city services general<br />

manager David Adamson<br />

(left).<br />

“However, tests that we<br />

have done show the new<br />

compost recipe gives off<br />

considerably less potentially<br />

odorous gases than the old<br />

compost recipe so there are<br />

promising indicators it will make<br />

a positive difference.<br />

“We appreciate there has not<br />

been a significant change to<br />

odour in the wider area so far<br />

but are hopeful that Bromley<br />

residents will gradually start to<br />

notice the odour issues dissipating<br />

as the new compost recipe<br />

works through the facility.’’<br />

Adamson says new<br />

‘housekeeping’ processes at the<br />

transfer station have significantly<br />

reduced the odour coming from<br />

that facility. The council plans<br />

to survey residents in Bromley<br />

soon about the odour issues and<br />

whether they have noticed an<br />

improvement in the air quality.”<br />

MARK ARNEIL<br />

Candidate, Christchurch Central<br />

Resident of St.Albans, 58 and married with three children.<br />

Accomplished hospitality and recreation & events manager,<br />

with global experience running large complex operations<br />

in both the private and public sectors. Former owner of a<br />

successful hospitality & leisure consulting business.<br />

I am standing for NZ First because:<br />

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

inequality and a new class of working poor finding it hard to make ends meet<br />

let alone owning a home, the deterioration of public services, and a lack of<br />

investment in infrastructure to keep pace with unfettered population growth.<br />

•I was also appalled by National’s obsession with a low wage workforce<br />

instead of training young people - putting profit before people and the<br />

environment, their lack of compassion towards the elderly and other vulnerable<br />

groups, and their relentless sales of land, state houses, and primary businesses<br />

to foreign interests.<br />

My Priorities:<br />

•A more egalitarian, inclusive and just society in which everyone can provide<br />

for their families with well-paying jobs and affordable housing without being<br />

burdened with a lifetime of debt.<br />

•Environmental, economic and sovereign rights vigorously protected.<br />

•New Zealand as a responsible Pacific leader and protector.<br />

•Accessible and high quality health care.<br />

•Future generations able receive education and training well matched to their potential.<br />

•More government investment in infrastructure needs, research and<br />

development, and job rich sustainable industries.<br />

•Implementing the Provincial Growth Fund to boost regional economies.<br />

•Strong border security with all returnees paying their fair share.<br />

•An immigration policy strictly targeted to genuine labour and skills shortages.<br />

•Always looking after the elderly and all vulnerable groups.<br />

Wetland, walking track planned<br />

A NEW WETLAND area with<br />

walking tracks will be developed<br />

as part of flood protection work<br />

in the Aranui and Bexley area.<br />

The Three Waters<br />

Infrastructure and Environment<br />

Committee voted to accelerate<br />

work on the project in the<br />

Ōtākaro Avon<br />

River Corridor<br />

regeneration<br />

area so that<br />

construction<br />

can get under<br />

way next year.<br />

“This is a<br />

wonderful<br />

Pauline<br />

Cotter<br />

opportunity<br />

to take an<br />

integrated<br />

approach to how we manage<br />

land, water and natural hazards,’’<br />

said councillor Pauline Cotter,<br />

chairwoman of the Three Waters<br />

Infrastructure and Environment<br />

Committee.<br />

“The project that we<br />

approved will do far more<br />

than simply reduce the risk<br />

of flooding; it will have<br />

ecological and environmental<br />

benefits and it will create another<br />

recreational area that people can<br />

enjoy.”<br />

The project involves<br />

building a new stopbank and<br />

stormwater detention basin<br />

(pond) and wetland in the<br />

Walking tracks and other<br />

features will be included in the<br />

stormwater basin and wetland<br />

area, in keeping with the vision<br />

outlined in the Ōtākaro Avon<br />

River Corridor Regeneration<br />

Plan.<br />

“I’m pleased that we’ve been<br />

able to speed-up the delivery<br />

of this project because it will<br />

demonstrate the way forward in<br />

other parts of the Ōtākaro Avon<br />

River Corridor Regeneration<br />

area where we are going to have<br />

to adapt and learn how to live<br />

with water,’’ Cotter said.<br />

The project was originally<br />

scheduled to begin in the<br />

2024/25 financial year, but now<br />

city council staff plan to have the<br />

detailed design work completed<br />

by the end of this year so that the<br />

work can be tendered early next<br />

year.<br />

Construction costs for the<br />

project are estimated at $12<br />

million. This work will be<br />

funded through the Land<br />

YVONNE RITCHIE is retiring<br />

after 25 years of looking<br />

after bookings for the Ascot<br />

Community Centre at Queen<br />

Elizabeth II Park.<br />

The city council is now looking<br />

for a new group to manage the<br />

facility.<br />

The community centre is currently<br />

used by the Ascot Petanque<br />

Club, a gentle exercise group,<br />

an older adults’ social group,<br />

the New Brighton Photographic<br />

Club and a scrabble group. Other<br />

groups also hire the community<br />

centre on a casual basis.<br />

Ritchie became bookings administrator<br />

in 1994 when the former<br />

Ascot Golf Course clubrooms<br />

became a community centre and a<br />

committee was formed to manage<br />

the community centre on behalf<br />

of the city council.<br />

She received a certificate of<br />

appreciation from the Coastal–<br />

Burwood Community Board<br />

on September 21 for her years of<br />

service.<br />

Above the Ground and Now Over the Fence<br />

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste<br />

and Kumusta. Greetings to everyone at LCŌ and our wider LCŌ community.<br />

It is very heartening to see the visible signs of progress with our rebuild for<br />

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

have peered through the gate over the past weeks have seen the foundation<br />

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

It is worth remembering too just how good this rebuild is. As we have said<br />

in the past, the next time that you are in Tūranga, the central library, look up<br />

and look around. The same architect, Carsten Auers of Architectus, who<br />

designed Tūranga, is the architect for our school. Stunning.<br />

Likewise, Southbase Construction is a highly<br />

experienced and expert construction company with<br />

major success in many school redevelopment,<br />

whether totally new or a rebuild.<br />

Shifting a school comes with its own set<br />

of challenges. For a start, there are the<br />

logistics of moving everything from<br />

basketballs to hydrochloric acid, but more<br />

importantly, there is ensuring consistency<br />

of belonging and connection to our school,<br />

and ensuring consistency of learning.<br />

However, these challenges are much<br />

more positive ones to work through than<br />

the challenges of being at school in the<br />

middle of a building site: safety, noise, dust,<br />

temporary buildings, reduced playing areas<br />

and so on. And, as I have said before, our leaving<br />

Aldwins Road means a year comes off the building<br />

programme and there is a saving of a $1m that has been<br />

retained in the programme.<br />

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

Social Sciences, spoke at the Farewell Celebration Weekend in April 2<strong>01</strong>9 to<br />

the hundreds of past pupils who attended this wonderful weekend to celebrate<br />

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

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

absolutely right. A lot of life occurs in a school and as a community resource<br />

and focal point, schools experience all the joys and tragedies that occur in a<br />

community. Our leaving those original school buildings was a significant event<br />

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

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

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

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi engari he toa takitini - My strength is not mine<br />

alone; my strength is from many.<br />

Linwood<br />

College<br />

Te Aratai - Pathway to the Sea<br />

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

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

one that our Board of Trustees have whole-heartedly supported. The name is<br />

Te Aratai. In English: pathway to the sea.<br />

The guiding reasons underpinning the name has been outlined by Dianne<br />

Robinson on behalf of Ngāi Tūāhuriri. Dianne is a Mana Whenua Education<br />

Facilitator for Mātauraka Mahaanui:<br />

“Linwood College on Aldwins Road is adjacent to the direct pathway (now<br />

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

of a larger fishery used by Ngāi Tūāhuriri. Te Ihutai, was renowned<br />

for its abundance and variety of fish and shellfish, including tuna<br />

(eels), kanakana (lamprey), inaka (whitebait), pātiki (flounder),<br />

and pipi. Several nearby kāinga nohoanga (settlements) took<br />

advantage of the estuary’s rich food resources, with caves<br />

along the base of the nearby foothills providing necessary<br />

shelter. The estuary itself was the gateway to the vast<br />

comprehensive network of wetlands that once extended<br />

throughout the Canterbury region, with the Ōtākaro (Avon)<br />

and Ōpāwaho (Heathcote River) being the primary access<br />

routes. This name links the school to this significant route<br />

and this significant mahinga kai area (Te Ihutai) which was<br />

traditionally owned and used by Kaiapoi Ngāi Tahu (Ngāi<br />

Tūāhuriri) and this relationship is acknowledged as part of the<br />

Claims Settlement Act 1998. The major waterways Ōtākaro and<br />

Ōpāwaho flow into Te Ihutai and the school’s catchment zone<br />

includes schools located along these waterways.”<br />

The Board’s intention is that the school changes its name to Te Aratai<br />

for our return to Aldwins Road, 2022. We acknowledge the proud history of<br />

the name Linwood since 1954, the school’s opening. 2022, and our complete<br />

school rebuild, is the opportunity to create a school name and identity that is<br />

open and inclusive to our wider community we serve and is not just based on<br />

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

Linwood College has never actually been in Linwood. Our Aldwins Road site is<br />

actually in Phillipstown.<br />

More information about the name and the legal process for changing a school<br />

name will be forthcoming. We are very grateful to Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga<br />

for their gift to our whānau, to our community of this beautiful and appropriate<br />

name -Te Aratai.<br />

Ngā mihi nui -<br />

Richard Edmundson Tumuaki-Principal<br />

The Turning of the Sod<br />

On Wednesday the 5th of August Linwood College at Ōtākaro<br />

commemorated a milestone in the rebuild process.<br />

It was a particularly brisk but clear Canterbury morning for this important<br />

ceremony. Representing the school were LCŌ’s Head Students Mario<br />

Cvetkoski and Paigan-Lilly Hall as weall as the Watson-Hall whānau,<br />

a family whose tamariki span right through the school’s year levels,<br />

from Year 7 to Year 13.<br />

LCŌ were honoured to have Ngāi Tūāhuriri and Ngāti Wheke<br />

present. Also in attendance were the Ministry of Education, the<br />

Board of Trustees, the rebuild architects from Architectus, the project<br />

management firm RDT Pacific, Southbase Construction and various<br />

school staff.<br />

The event began on Aldwins Road where everyone was greeted by<br />

Corban Te Aika, Ngāi Tūāhuriri, who led everyone onto the site and<br />

blessed the land with karakia. The official sod was dug by our head<br />

students and has been retained for reinstating in the official opening.<br />

The ceremonies ended with the sharing of kai and kōrero.<br />

INSTORE!<br />

Rage<br />

by Bob Woodward<br />

After ignoring interview requests for Woodward’s 2<strong>01</strong>8 book Fear, which<br />

described efforts by members of the early Trump administration to contain the<br />

president’s behavior, Trump allowed Woodward to interview him on more than<br />

a dozen occasions for Rage. CNN reports that the book reveals “explosive<br />

accounts” of Trump’s attitude toward the pandemic, Black Lives Matter, and<br />

other events of <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

The book also contains reporting from 25 letters between Trump and North<br />

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

which Kim “describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a ‘fantasy<br />

film,’” according to the publishers Simon & Schuster.<br />

The Rodchenkov Affair<br />

How I Brought Down Putin’s Secret Doping Empire<br />

by Grigory rodchenkov<br />

As a leading chemical scientist and Director of the Moscow Anti-Doping<br />

Laboratory, Dr Grigory Rodchenkov was at the forefront of global efforts to<br />

detect drugs cheats in sport. Yet he was simultaneously running the most<br />

elaborate doping scheme in history, helping thousands of athletes and elite<br />

players evade detection. Then the cracks started to show, and Vladimir Putin<br />

sent him a chilling message . . .<br />

Icarus, the Oscar-winning Netflix film, followed Grigory Rodchenkov as he<br />

turned whistleblower, fled Russia and entered the US Witness Protection<br />

Programme. In this explosive memoir he reveals how everything he has<br />

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

tip of the iceberg.<br />

Grim, Victorian, notorious, for 150 years Mount Eden Prison held both New Zealand’s<br />

political prisoners and its most infamous criminals. Te Kooti, Rua Kenana, John A.<br />

Lee, George Wilder, Tim Shadbolt and Sandra Coney all spent time in its dank cells.<br />

Its interior has been the scene of mass riots, daring escapes and hangings.<br />

The stories explore homeland, ethnicity and identity — and range from her<br />

childhood in war-torn Iran to making friends in the suburbs of Auckland.<br />

Ghazaleh, who is also a filmmaker and Fullbright scholar, brings her stories to<br />

life through humour and a fresh honesty.<br />

Dark Side of the Brain<br />

by lance Burdett<br />

Lance Burdett started writing this book while he was studying for a diploma in<br />

positive psychology, then something tragic happened - his seventeen-year-old<br />

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

This loss proved to him that adversity can hit anyone at any time, often<br />

unexpectedly. The loss of his niece, combined with Lance’s own experience of<br />

depression spurred him on to share the lessons he’s learned about how the<br />

brain works, knowledge which he’s gathered throughout his years both as a<br />

police negotiator and later as a resilience and wellness specialist. In this book,<br />

he explains how to control your thoughts, how to reduce the impact of negative<br />

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

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

else may be struggling with negative thoughts and how to reach out to them in a<br />

way that’s safe for both of you.<br />

Labour’s recovery plan – ‘it’s<br />

already happening’<br />

People can have confidence in<br />

Labour’s recovery plan because<br />

it is already being implemented,<br />

says Hon Poto Williams, MP for<br />

Christchurch East.<br />

“It’s different from the promises that<br />

political parties sometimes make at<br />

election time because the public can<br />

see that it’s actually happening,” says<br />

Poto Williams.<br />

The Labour-led Government did<br />

not waste time when COVID-19<br />

struck, Poto Williams explained.<br />

The Government immediately<br />

announced a wage subsidy. That<br />

kept bread on the table for workers,<br />

and won the praise of employers<br />

because it kept their businesses<br />

alive.<br />

That was the first part of the<br />

plan. The next part came in the<br />

Budget in May – an allocation of<br />

$3b (that’s 3000 million dollars)<br />

on infrastructure projects that<br />

could be implemented quickly, the<br />

Poto Williams: “Jobs, jobs, jobs.”<br />

‘shovel-ready’ projects. Economists<br />

estimate that these projects will<br />

deliver 20,000 jobs.<br />

Canterbury’s share is $300m.<br />

Many of the projects are standard<br />

infrastructure projects such as<br />

upgrades to the water supply<br />

systems that local councils manage.<br />

Other projects are ‘social’<br />

infrastructure. These include three<br />

Christchurch projects: patient<br />

accommodation and facilities<br />

for the Cancer Society, patient<br />

accommodation for the Bone<br />

Marrow Cancer Trust, and a new<br />

complex for the Youth Health Trust.<br />

These projects, costing $22m in<br />

total, are expected to create more<br />

than 500 jobs.<br />

A package of smaller projects has<br />

been planned for the New Brighton<br />

area. (See page 2 for details.)<br />

All the projects have been selected<br />

on the basis that they are planned<br />

and ready-to-go.<br />

Poto Williams does not gloss over<br />

the pain many are experiencing.<br />

She says she is very much aware of<br />

the impact of COVID-19 on travel,<br />

tourism and hospitality.<br />

“I feel deeply for the workers who<br />

have lost their jobs and the business<br />

owners struggling to survive,” she<br />

says.<br />

Asked to summarise Labour’s<br />

recovery plan in three words, she<br />

says it’s “Jobs, jobs, jobs.”<br />

“I am thankful”<br />

At a street corner meeting, Poto<br />

met a man who came from<br />

Mexico. He is now a citizen and<br />

voting for the first time. Poto<br />

asked how his people were ‘back<br />

home’.<br />

“They are suffering terribly,”<br />

he said. “I am thankful that we<br />

live in a country that has the<br />

resources to care for its people.”<br />

A reminder that we should all<br />

be thankful for Aotearoa New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Collective recovery for New Brighton -<br />

$7,000,000 for local projects<br />

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

Regeneration, announced the New Brighton Collective Infrastructure Project<br />

Within the collective there are nine separate projects. Several are to upgrade<br />

existing facilities, some are to replace earthquake-damaged buildings, some<br />

are to complete projects stalled by funding shortfalls, and others are new<br />

ventures.<br />

The nine projects are:<br />

• New Brighton Rugby Club – redevelopment of clubrooms for wider<br />

community use (‘Eastern Hub’).<br />

• Softball diamond and improved drainage of rugby grounds -<br />

Rawhiti Domain.<br />

• New Brighton Surf Club – replacement of old, earthquake damaged<br />

buildings.<br />

• South Brighton Surf Club – replacement of damaged, out-dated club<br />

house.<br />

• Waka Ama – improved facilities at Lower Avon base.<br />

All of the clubs involved are committed to making their new facilities<br />

available for other community groups to use.<br />

• All-weather netball and tennis courts – Rawhiti Domain.<br />

• Native bird sanctuary and woodland play space – Rawhiti Domain.<br />

• South Brighton Tennis Club – upgrade of courts and clubrooms.<br />

• The Bridge Hub, South Brighton – completion of community centre.<br />

Builder explains project at South Brighton Surf Club<br />

Where the idea<br />

came from<br />

Reconstruction work at The Bridge Hub<br />

“One morning I was jogging past<br />

the New Brighton Surf Club, the<br />

Rugby Club, and through the<br />

Rawhiti Domain,” Poto says. “I<br />

realised how each group is working<br />

to provide social opportunities for<br />

our children and to revitalise critical<br />

community facilities. I saw how we<br />

could combine these groups under<br />

the New Brighton Collective and<br />

provide valuable community assets<br />

for the future, creating jobs in the<br />

process. The idea took on and other<br />

groups joined in.<br />

I had been frustrated by the slow,<br />

sporadic recovery of the eastern<br />

suburbs. This funding is a real<br />

boost.”<br />

Rawhiti – children play near canopy of partly built all-weather courts.<br />

New Brighton Rugby Clubrooms – the new ‘Eastern Hub’<br />

To the people of<br />

Christchurch East<br />

Thank you for everything you have<br />

done to help us through this very<br />

hard time. I know that for some of<br />

you it has cost a lot. Jacinda often<br />

reminded us that we were a team of<br />

5 million. You all played your part<br />

and I am grateful to you.<br />

I hope you felt supported by your<br />

Government and by me, your MP.<br />

We supported a lot of people with<br />

the wage subsidy and help for small<br />

business. We doubled the winter<br />

energy payment and we supported<br />

groups that were providing food<br />

and other essentials to those who<br />

were finding it tough.<br />

It’s easy to forget what we achieved<br />

before Covid-19 hit us. There’s a lot<br />

to celebrate. The Families Package<br />

put an extra $75 a week into the<br />

pockets of 384,000 families, Best<br />

Start gave the families of new-borns<br />

an extra $60 a week. We indexed<br />

benefits to inflation and increased<br />

the main benefit by $25 a week.<br />

We increased the minimum wage<br />

to $18.90 and recently announced<br />

the living Wage of $22.10 for all<br />

government-contracted staff.<br />

We passed the Carbon Zero Act, cut<br />

school fees and built 2800 public<br />

rental homes – an average of 18 a<br />

week. But there is still a lot to do.<br />

It’s been a privilege to be your MP<br />

and to serve in a Government led by<br />

Jacinda Ardern. I hope I can count<br />

on your support at this election,<br />

and I hope you will give your party<br />

vote to Labour to enable Jacinda to<br />

continue to lead this country.<br />
