store

application

labelled

‘ridiculous’

• By Bea Gooding

THREE BOTTLE stores operating

within 200m of each other in

Papanui has been described as

“ridiculous.”

BD Bottle Ltd has applied to open

“Bottle O Papanui” at 30 Main

North Rd, with proposed opening

hours from Monday to Sunday

between 10am and 10pm.

Papanui resident Mel Price said

it was “ridiculous” to have three

liquor outlets within metres of each

other.

Just 50m away was Super Liquor

Papanui, another 180m up Main

North Rd was Thirsty Liquor Papanui,

along with alcohol options

at Northlands Shopping Centre’s

Pak’n Save and Countdown.

“I would like to encourage as

many residents and businesses as

possible to object this, as it is ridiculous

to have three outlets within

180m of each other,” she said.

“If no one objects, then this will

simply go through.”

Price was concerned because the

proposed store was in close proximity

to where many children often

gathered.

Shopping trolleys plague neighbourhood

• By Bea Gooding

RAY O’ROURKE is on a mission

to rid his neighbourhood of

rogue shopping trolleys.

The Casebrook resident has

been locked in a battle with

businesses from Northlands

Shopping Centre for the last two

years in order for them to remove

their trolleys from streets near

the mall.

He said he has had to call businesses

nearly every week as abandoned

trolleys from Countdown

and The Warehouse were often

blocking footpaths.

“I’m sick of it, I don’t want my

suburb to look like a rubbish

bin,” he said.

“Quite a few people walk

around here, I wouldn’t say it’s a

danger, it’s an eyesore more than

anything.

“Obviously it’s a problem for

the supermarkets because they’ve

got to go and pick them up, but

at the end of the day it’s their

problem and they need to find a

way to resolve it.”

Businesses were usually compliant

and removed them upon

request, but at times they could

“lay around for days on end.”

Because he lived further away

from the mall, sometimes staff

would miss trolleys near his

home as they would often check

“The thing is, people shouldn’t

A Countdown spokeswoman

said it was not uncommon for

trolleys to go missing and the

company considered taking of

trolleys as theft.

“It’s not unusual for trolleys

to go missing from time to

time and our teams have processes

in place to manage this,”

she said.

“We would of course

encourage customers not to take

baskets or trolleys away with

them as this is actually theft, and

it also disadvantages anyone else

who needs to use them when

Pink Ribbon walk in memory of

FUN: With 5km and 10km routes, the walks

are accessible to everyone, no matter their

age or fitness level.

BEVAN SANDISON is doing the

Pink Ribbon Walk next month in

memory of his mother Raewynne who

lost her battle with breast cancer in

April 2018.

“I’m doing this walk, along with

my kids, Katie, 12, and Emma, 9, to

remember my mum/their nana,” he

said.

“She was an amazingly strong

woman, who inspirationally fought

the good fight for us, for a few years

after being diagnosed, giving us some

extra time to grow new memories

with her.”

Sandison said his mother was

diagnosed after finding a lump in

2013. As it was caught early she was

able to get radiation treatment. The

treatment was considered a success

and the prognosis was great. She was

able to continue working as a secondary

school teacher through until she

retired a year or so later.

“However, very shortly afterwards,

and with big plans ahead for her retirement

with dad, her world and ours,

got turned upside down when one

Sunday morning, whilst lifting a bag

of groceries out of the car boot, a bone

in her upper arm suddenly broke clean

through,” said Sandison.

“X-rays and scans then confirmed

the worst, that her treatment hadn’t

been as successful as had thought, but

rather, had metastasised into stage 4

cancer, having spread to her bones.

“Being given the new prognosis

that stage 4 has no cure, was literally

devastating news, and I will always

vividly remember sitting there with

mum at the hospital receiving the

“The following couple of years were

riddled with hospital visits, radiation

treatment to shrink tumours that

kept appearing on the spine and other

places, and various drug treatments.

Having damaged a nerve in her arm

when her arm broke, affecting

her hand meaning she was no longer

able to drive, the resultant trips to the

oncologist became a regular part of

live for the family as we all chipped in

to help with transport and to attend

and support mum.

“Through it all, including some

very tough times, the care and

treatment mum received was simply

amazing, and the new oral chemo

pill she was on, did a wonderful job

of extending her time, and allowing

us to enjoy some valuable time with

her, and for her to see her grandkids

get a couple of years older, before she

finally had to leave us.”

Recognition for student’s photo

• By Bea Gooding

CLAUDIA O’Shannessey’s

passion for protecting the

environment has resulted in

the year 13 student taking

out one of the top spots at an

international competition.

The Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

competition.

The competition

gives

young people

a platform to research environmental

issues and promote

solutions through investigative

reporting, photography and

video journalism.

Said Claudia: “When I first

found out I was pretty ecstatic.

It felt like a huge privilege to

represent New Zealand and to

get such an outstanding result

world wide to me is one of my

greatest achievements.”

“I entered because I wanted a

way to make a difference whilst

pursuing my passion and using

my strengths.”

Claudia was one of three

New Zealand students who

won awards in the litter less

campaign category, with entries

related to the topic of litter and

waste.

Her photo, which was placed

in the photography 15-18 years

category, features her younger

sister, Sienna, collecting waste

on Sumner beach.

The “huge” sunrise

represented the start of a new

day and symbolised the start of

something new, or change.

“You can clearly see her

silhouette where she is eagerly

dragging the trash bin in order

to make a change. Small acts

matter,’’ she said.

“She’s a surfer from Sumner

who is protecting what she cares

about and ultimately fixing

something she didn’t cause.”

Sustainability was something

the student held close to her

heart as it determined the future

of her generation and beyond.

“I am proud of my Maori heritage

and I wanted this photo

to capture the powerful essence

of our land and water as taonga

(treasures), and our spiritual

connection to our land, Papatuanuku,”

she said.

“It worries me when thinking

of climate change and our

believe it’s not too late to make a

When Claudia leaves school

she plans to continue harnessing

her creative energy into

projects where she can make a

change.

“My goals for the near future

are to study law whilst expanding

my photography and creative

skills,” she said.

“I hope to gain a degree where

I can use my education and

talents to bring attention and

raise awareness to issues that

affect our youth and the future

of our world.”

•From page 1

A large bus stop opposite

the proposed store was used

extensively by school children

and teenagers from Papanui High

School.

Said Price: “Another outlet in

this area means that there will be

easier access to alcohol. It’s well

documented that more liquor

stores ultimately leads to increased

drinking in the area.

“Papanui is a liquor ban area,

and this was put in place some

years ago to decrease trouble

caused by alcohol in the area.”

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member Simon Britten said

the board was unable to make any

submissions or decisions on the

application.

But the negative health and

social outcomes of alcohol needed

to be considered, he said. when the

district licencing committee made

their decision.

He questioned whether the

“small stretch of road” needed a

new store.

“I am still interested in hearing

from members of the public to

determine my own view on it, but

I absolutely encourage them to

make submissions.”

Auction achieves

29 per cent above RV

103 Wildberry Street in Woolston was the

stand-out property in last week’s Wednesday

auctions at Ray White Strowan, stunning

many hopeful buyers and continuing to prove

to homeowners that interest in Christchurch

property is at an all-time high.

Ray White Strowan agent Jiby Thomas, who

marketed and sold the property, was equally

impressed with the results achieved at auction

on Wednesday.

“We had incredible interest in this property

and from the first open home, we knew it was

going to be popular. An exceptional marketing

campaign saw more than 45 groups attend

the open homes, with four registered bidders

turning out on auction day to compete for the

keys after just 21 days on the market,” Jiby says.

Bidding opened at $400,000. From then

on, an intensive round of bidding and

counterbidding from several attendees saw the

hammer finally fall at $560,000, an incredible

$125,000 (29 per cent) above the Rateable value

of $435,000.

As Barry Ellis, who owns the Ray White

Bishopdale and Ray White Strowan offices,

says, “More and more, the auction method is

being seen as the best way to achieve the best

price for our vendors, and it seems even banks

are now on-board with auction preference – as

we note pre-approval priority is being given if

they’re buying at auction.”

When competition for property is at these

kinds of levels the auction method is simply

the best opportunity for vendors to achieve

exceptional prices and gives a fair opportunity

to all interested purchasers to secure the keys,

Barry says.

“As we moved towards the end of September,

we had a record number of auctions called by

our Ray White offices across Christchurch for

the month, breaking all previous records,” says

Ray White New Zealand South Island regional

manager Jane Meyer.

Jiby Thomas says the market couldn’t be

more exciting, with huge interest being shown

in the Canterbury market from a diverse range

of buyers.

“It’s been a remarkable couple of months

for the whole office with auctions proving as

popular as ever because of the competition it

creates, and you’re hard-pushed in the current

market to not have multiple bidders on each

property.

“103 Wildberry Street is just another

example of the incredible results we’re

achieving for our vendors and is a testament

to the strength in the market we’re seeing right

now. The demand for property is higher than

ever and that’s evidenced in the fact we’re often

seeing more than 50 groups coming through

open homes,” Jiby says.

Lachie’s loud way to be heard

LACHIE BARTLETT vividly

remembers the moment his

cochlear implant was switched on

for the first time when he was an

eight-year-old.

“My family was behind the

one-way mirror that looked into

the room,” said Bartlett, who is

profoundly deaf.

“I remember Mum saying: ‘Hi

Lachie’ from the other side of the

glass. I smiled immediately. The

next sound I heard was the crying

of my nana and Mum.”

That was 14 years ago.

The former St Bede’s College head

boy, now 23, has since graduated

with a law degree from Canterbury

University and took up an exchange

opportunity to study at the University

of Nottingham in the United

Kingdom. He now works in Wellington.

Bartlett, and thousands of other

adults and children with cochlear

implants, are the focus of loud shirt

day 2020 – a national fundraising

event and awareness campaign on

October 23.

New Zealanders are encouraged

to dress up in their brightest outfits

and hold fundraising events at

workplaces, homes and schools

throughout the country.

Loud shirt day is the annual appeal

of The Hearing House and the

Southern Cochlear Implant Programme

– the only two charities in

New Zealand dedicated to helping

children and adults with a cochlear

implant learn to listen and speak.

Bartlett’s hearing loss was

diagnosed when he was 18-monthsold.

He lost his hearing completely

when he was eight, mid-way

through playing a game of tennis.

“I remember falling over at the

tennis courts and being disorientated,

and my hearing aids just

refused to work. The sudden nature

of my hearing loss was incredibly

scary for me and my family,” Bartlett

said.

“I became a recluse. I wouldn’t

say much, I preferred to be alone at

home and I did not enjoy school.

The loss of my hearing crippled

my confidence and shackled my

ability to continue developing relationships

with those around me,”

Bartlett said.

The cochlear implant has enabled

him to reach his full potential.

“Thanks to my cochlear implant,

I was able to travel halfway around

the world studying and doing my

OE like so many other Kiwis before

me. I now have the ability to choose

whatever path I want to take in

life.”

Surgery and the subsequent

switch-on is only one part of the

cochlear implant process. Patients

need to learn how to use the

technology and interpret the new

sounds through ongoing audiology

“A local team for local people”

and speech and language therapy.

“The switch-on is significant, but

it’s just the first step in a marathon,”

said Bartlett.

“The ongoing rehabilitation and

support from organisations like

SCIP and THH are equally important

but sadly don’t get the same

amount of attention.

“The cochlear implant is like getting

your first car, something that

has endless potential to take you

anywhere, but if you are not empowered

to be able to use it you’ll

just stay stuck in the drive.”

Bartlett regularly participates in

loud shirt day, and encourages others

to do the same.

“The funds raised by loud shirt

day helped me and will help children

and adults in the future to

focus on their abilities – enabling

them to view their disability as an

opportunity, rather than a burden.

You have the chance to change

people’s lives.

“The money raised for loud shirt

day is a direct investment in the

lives of those who want to hear.”

SUPPORT: Lachie Bartlett,

who is profoundly deaf,

encourages others to take

part in loud shirt day to

fundraise for charities

who work with the deaf

community.

Aroha Salon celebrates

one year in Kendal Ave

In an unusually challenging year,

Paula Page has created a warm and

welcoming hair salon. Paula sees

Aroha as more than just a salon,

her customers enjoy the friendly

atmosphere, often popping in for a

chat.

Aroha Salon was opened October

2019 on Paula’s return to Christchurch.

Born in the Chatham Islands, she still

runs her salon there regularly. She

also previously owned and operated

Clipotec in Riccarton Road.

Paula’s expertise covers all aspects of

hairdressing, all ages and styles. She

takes the time to listen to your needs

and offers practical haircare advice

and styling tips. Paula’s high standards

also extend to the cleanliness of the

salon with people often commenting

on the clean, fresh feel.

‘‘

Ph 357 0002

162a Kendal Ave, Burnside (Memorial Ave end)

Opening Hours

Tuesday to Friday 9am-5pm, Saturday 9am-2pm

Late night Thursday or by appointment

Hair by Jeanette

With over 24 years’ experience,

Jeanette has as much passion for hair,

fun, fashion, tone and colour as when

she first started.

After owning her own salon in Opawa

for over eleven years, Jeanette has

spent the last 5 years working in a salon

in Bishopdale Mall. She is now very

excited to be back working for herself,

just 5mins from her former location, at

Aroha Salon on Kendal Ave.

“I love working with clients, expressing

their personality through style and

My aim is that everyone walks

out of the salon feeling a million

dollars, knowing how to maintain

their style and provide great

value for money.

and caring for your community” Delwyn says. “What we serve

at Mrs Dentons café & delicatessen is what I’ve been cooking at

leek and parsley, Scallop pie, Mussel, tomato & garlic in the range, the sky is the limit

when it comes to Delwyn’s culinary combinations.

Say it with flowers...

With more than 37 years in the

industry, Leanne Lovell will celebrate

her second year as owner of Victoria

Florist on October 1st.

Leanne credits the increased success

of this well-established florist to the

popular addition of the Dried Flower

Den.

“Dried flowers are all the rage for

those who love the natural look. We

have bouquets available plus a large

selection of loose dried flowers,

perfect for those who like to create

their own bunches,” says Leanne.

Leanne regularly starts her day at

5.30am, heading to the flower market

to select the freshest, brightest, most

beautiful flowers. “Because we have

a high turnover daily, this ensures

Cnr Wairakei & Idris Rds

our customers receive the freshest

The friendly, talented team are very

passionate about what they do. “We

love flowers, we love life, and we

believe in celebrating the big, small,

happy and sad times that are part of

life. We put love into every bouquet,

we really care.” Leanne is happiest

when creating her exquisite funeral

arrangements. “If my flowers can

help families in grief – that means

everything to me” she says.

Nothing is too big or small to

celebrate with flowers and Victoria

Florist caters for every occasion. They

offer a great selection of vases, soft

toys, helium balloons, chocolates and

cards to accompany your bouquet.

Positive music album proving popular

• By Bea Gooding

MICHAL BUSH has always had

a passion for connecting with

children through the world of

music.

The mother of three has now

become a hit on YouTube, with

her song Kindness is Free, stacking

up more

than 40,000

views.

The positive

song, which

came out in

2019, helped

Michal Bush

her and other

parents talk to

their children about the March

15 mosque attacks and the importance

of kindness.

To help families take a break

from the “overwhelming”

anxieties of the world during

Covid-19, Bush created Can You

Make Music? – a new, 15-track

children’s music album with an

overarching theme of well-being.

Bush said the album was

recorded during the lockdown

and took three to four months

to complete, with the help of a

funding grant from Creative

New Zealand.

“Music is an incredible tool for

heavy issues. I think the world

is so overwhelming, and as a

parent and teacher, it’s a heavy

responsibility to take the anxiety

out of the world to protect your

kids,” she said.

“So this is using music in a

positive way to help children focus

on the goodness in the world,

and as parents, it helps you to

take a deep breath, have fun, and

see that life is beautiful.”

Bush has always loved music

and has been songwriting since

she was a child. She started

focusing on children’s music for

the last eight years following the

birth of her daughter.

Ever since, she has performed

in numerous early childhood

centres, pre-schools, trusts and

online to develop children’s interest

in singing and rhythm with

her Music with Michal Club.

“It’s [music] so much a part

of who I am, how I process the

world, how I get my thoughts out

and how I connect with other

people,” she said.

“I’m so drawn to children’s

music because I love the wonder

and awe of it, it’s the best job

ever. Children are such a wonderful

audience, they come with

so much joy.”

Her songs have been used as a

resource by teachers and parents

across the country. Her children

were a “big” part of the process

having heard the album through

its different stages of completion

and also sang in a few songs.

Said Bush: “Thanks to the

grant from Creative NZ, I was

able to hire my friends who are

amazing producers to help produce

the album, which we made

from our own homes. It was a

very cool process.

“The album brings joy and

connection between parent

and child, which celebrates

the childlike point of view of

the world, sparks creativity in

children and helps parents feel

like kids again.”

•The Can You Make

Music? album was

released last month and

WITH MORE than 100 edible

species in his garden, Dave

Bryce would give any vegetable

shop a run for its money.

Which is why the Mt

Pleasant resident, who is also

the chairman of Redcliffs/Te

Rae Kura Eco Village Group,

was successful at the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Edible

Garden Awards.

He received a special

award for Best Sustainability

Features and was one of seven

recognised in the Residential

House Category.

The awards were presented to

Mr Bryce at a ceremony held at

the Matuku Takotako: Sumner
