Mora to stay on as

board chairman

• By Bea Gooding

MIKE MORA has done a

U-turn over his plan to step

down as chairman of Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board.

Mora, 72, had planned to hand

over the reins after 28 years on

the board, serving more than 20

years as chairman, and deputy

chairman combined.

The plan was for deputy

chairman Andrei Moore to take

Mora’s position this year, with

Mora serving as deputy chairman

for the remainder of the

three-year term.

The current term will be

Mora’s last as he intends to retire

by 2022 to spend more time

with his family after nearly three

decades as an elected member of

the board.

He believed his decades of

experience and extensive knowledge

of the area were driving

forces behind his re-election.

Said Mora: “I feel like I’ve got

the confidence of the board. The

members wanted me to stay on

because there’s still quite a lot of

work to do on the Annual Plan

and the Long Term Plan.

VERDICT: Mike Mora has been re-elected as chairman of the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board in spite of plans to retire this year.

Speeds

through

Yaldhurst

to lower

soon

SPEED LIMITS in Yaldhurst will

soon be reduced in response to

increased traffic in the area.

The changes will take place

from next month on State Highway

73 extending west through

the Yaldhurst township.

The existing speed limits were

80km/h and 100km/h, with

70km/h through the township.

“The speed limits on Yaldhurst

roads have been the subject of

ongoing community calls for

reductions, particularly with the

significant development in the

area which has generated more

pedestrian and cycling activity

alongside traffic,” said Jim Harland,

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport

Agency director regional relationships.

The technical assessment

conducted by Waka Kotahi

supports reductions to 60km/h

through the urban fringe and

Yaldhurst town centre with a

reduction to 80km/h to the west

of the town, while the intervening

rural section east of Yaldhurst is

to remain at 80km/h.

Council wants feedback on services

• By Bea Gooding

IS THE city council meeting

your needs when it comes to its

services and facilities?

That’s what the bosses at the

city council want to know as they

start on their annual residents’

survey.

Each year the city council

surveys residents across the city to

understand how satisfied they are

with services covering its parks,

libraries and service centres.

City council chief executive

Dawn Baxendale said the survey

was one of the tools

used to assess where

they were performing

well, and where

improvements

needed to be made

and prioritised.

“We want to find

out what is working

Dawn

Bexandale

well for residents and what’s not

working well because our focus,

as an organisation, is on meeting

the needs of our residents,” she

said.

“The findings of this year’s survey

programme will feed into the

development of our 2021-31 Long

Term Plan, so I would really

encourage people to share their

views if they are approached by

staff at a council location or if

they receive an email or letter

from us.”

HAVE YOUR SAY: The city council’s Christchurch Residents’ Survey gauges whether its

services and facilities, like Tūranga, are meeting residents’ needs. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

This year’s survey included

specific questions that will help

the city council decide what it

should prioritise in the LTP.

The LTP is the document that

councils are legally required to

produce every three years. It sets

out what the city council will do

over the next 10 years and how it

will pay for it.

“The Covid-19 pandemic

has prompted many people,

businesses and organisations to

rethink their plans and priorities

and to tighten their belts.

We are having to do that too,”

Baxendale said.

“As we start to review our plans

and priorities, we want to gather

your views about the opportunities,

challenges and choices that

Christchurch is facing.”

The city council urged residents

to participate in the survey

if they were approached or contacted

by staff.

The findings of the survey

programme will be made public

next year.

Changes to

bin collection

looked into

THE CITY council is looking

to change aspects of its kerbside

wheelie bin collection in a bid to

reduce contamination.

A report presented to the

Finance and Performance Committee

outlined plans to make the

service more flexible as part of a

review into solid waste management.

The work will give priority to

current kerbside collections. Flexibility

around bin sizes, fees, as

well as a separate glass collection

are also being investigated.

The three-bin kerbside system

has diverted about 65 per cent of

household recyclable and organic

materials from landfill since its

inception in 2009.

“We’ve been hearing from a lot

of people that their green bins

aren’t big enough and we are

known as the garden city, so we’ll

be looking at how we can make

this service better,” said Helen

Beaumont, city council head of

three waters and waste.

“It will also help us reduce the

amount of contamination we’re

getting in recycling bins.”

The first stage of the review will

be completed by February next

year to feed into the 2021-2031

Long Term Plan.

‘I want to get these things sorted’

• From page 1

“We just need to concentrate

on doing the job and getting

the best outcomes for our

community. I just want to get

these things sorted before I

retire at the end of this term.”

The community board

members voted to re-elect

Mora as its chairman for the

remainder of the term after no

other names were put forward.

Out of all the board members,

councillor Catherine Chu was

the only member who voted

against the decision.

Mora decided to continue for

another two years because there

was still unfinished business

to attend to in the wider

community.

By staying in the position, it

kept the momentum going on

any “outstanding issues” that

needed to be resolved before

passing the torch on to someone

new.

These included the Hornby

Centre’s construction, the

Halswell Junction Rd extension,

supporting “landlocked”

residents at Yaldhurst Village,

tidying up the Sockburn Service

Centre and park, and sorting

out pedestrian and cycleway

links between major centres in

Hornby.

He also wanted to put a

succession plan in place for the

area’s future in the next 10 to

20 years, setting goals now to

enable work towards them in

the next term and beyond.

In addition to Mora’s reelection,

former city councillor

Helen Broughton has been

elected as the board’s new

deputy chairwoman, taking

over from Moore.

In spite of previous tensions

between the pair, such as

Broughton’s concerns that

Mora’s priorities did not focus

on Riccarton, Mora believed

this would not get in the way of

future decisions.

“We work together even

though we don’t always see

eye-to-eye. We had a chat after

the meeting and we want to

put the past behind us and

move forward in a positive

direction for the community we

represent.”

Plans to take on another term

ISSUE: Mike

Mora wants

to see the

Sockburn

Service

Centre

tidied up

before he

retires.

after the current one ended was

not likely for Mora.

“If people want me to stay

for another term, I’m not

considering that at this point

in time – unless something

happens later on,” he said.

“I just want to concentrate

on more time for family and

other interests. At the end of

this term I would’ve spent 30

years in local government, that’s

quite a big chunk of a person’s

life.”

Increased traffic

reason for change

• From page 1

“The feedback we received provided

good support for speed reductions

in the area and did not identify any

particular further issues that we were

not aware of,” says Mr Harland.

“Some people did, however, call

for lower speeds and to extend the

lower speed zones further west of

Yaldhurst, which we may consider in

the future.

“The increase in traffic and subsequent

crashes, along with the commercial

development and the many driveways

off the highway, means 60 and 80

kilometres per hour limits are safe and

appropriate speeds for this area.”

The city council consulted on the

speed limits for sections of Ryans,

Pound, Hasketts and School Rds.

The speed limits for these roads

are being reduced from 70km/h or

80km/h to 60km/h.

Sections of Ryans, Hasketts and

School Rds have already been implemented.

The remaining changes on Ryans

and Pound Rds will be co-ordinated

with changes to SH73.

“Improving the safety of the

road network is a critical issue for

the council. These changes will

reduce speeds at approaches to

high-risk intersections and maintain

consistency of speed limits across the

joint road network,” city council head

of transport Richard Osborne said.

Ollie helps design health hub

FORMER Christchurch Boys’

High School student Ollie

Latimer has battled mental

illness and helped design

plans for a youth health hub in

Christchurch.

Latimer’s mum succumbed

to breast cancer when he was

just four-years-old and his dad

took his own life in 2017.

Youth Hub Trust chairwoman

Dame Sue Bagshaw

helped him through this.

Now, the health hub proposed

for Salisbury St, which

will help others like Latimer

if approved, has received resource

consent.

Said Latimer, now 26: “I was

really struggling with depression

when I first reached out

for help.

“Sue was really there for me

from the start, helping me deal

with troubling issues both at

school and home. I had lost

my mum to breast cancer

when I was just four. The welcoming,

non-judgmental atmosphere

at 298 Youth Health

Centre really helped me.”

Once stronger, Latimer left

Christchurch to spend the

next five years in Auckland,

studying for a degree in spatial

design.

But in 2017, he returned to

APPROVED: Resource consent has been granted for a

youth health and well-being hub on Salisbury St. ​

Inset: Ollie Latimer.

Christchurch after his dad’s

death.

“I was really struggling to

cope with renewed grief and

turned once again to Sue for

counselling.

“That was super important

for me and I was able to pick

up again where we left off from

high school. Sue is incredible.

I spent many hours with her

through it all. What she does

to support youth is amazing.

She is there for so many young

people, she’s just so selfless

and caring,” said Latimer.

Bagshaw knew Latimer

needed some direction in his

life and sensed an opportunity

to involve him and his skills

with her ambitious one-stopshop

youth hub plans, then in

their infancy.

She asked him to a meeting

where he was introduced to

the Field Studio team, who

were soon engaged to design

the hub. Bagshaw and Field

Studio’s director thought Latimer’s

skills would be a good

fit for the project and Latimer

was invited in to the firm’s office

to join the project team.

Once built, the Youth Hub

– Te Hurihanga Ō Rangatahi

– will be a communal place

of growth, support and wellbeing

for 10 to 25-year-olds.

It will provide support services

including access to catchup

education, healthcare,

mental health counselling,

vocational training, recreation

and employment.

The centre will provide

space for about 12 different

youth organisations including

298 Youth Health Centre,

YouthLine, Qtopia and the

Christchurch City Mission.

Resource consent approval

comes just weeks after another

positive win for the ambitious

project – a $10 million

dollar kick-start from the

Government’s $3 billion dollar

Covid-19 Response and

Recovery Fund, set aside for

shovel-ready projects.

“That generous investment

is around half of what we

ultimately need to make the

youth hub a reality,” said

Bagshaw.

Neighbours have been

consulted, with the design

adjusted to address concerns.

Although resource consent

has been granted, affected

parties have until the end of

November to lodge an appeal.

Event to recycle your

electronic waste

EACH YEAR, New

Zealanders create an

average of 19kg of e-waste

per person, which is an

alarming statistic. To raise

awareness, Kilmarnock

Enterprises has teamed

up with the Rotary

Club of Christchurch

Sunrise and Warehouse

Stationery to organise an

electronic recycling day for

Christchurch locals.

As well as putting the

spotlight on New Zealand’s

e-waste problem, the event

that will be be held on November

21, will also raise

awareness of the important

role Kilmarnock plays in

the community.

For over 60 years, the

Christchurch-based charity

has been in the business of

changing lives. Since 1958,

their mission has been to

provide employment opportunities

for individuals

with disabilities.

At Kilmarnock, people

gain experience in a large

variety of work, including

food packing, assembly,

refurbishing and electronic

recycling. By providing an

inclusive and enriching

paid work environment,

their team are encouraged

to unlock their full potential.

In 2017, Kilmarnock

even established a training

academy, to give individuals

with disabilities another

chance to excel in education

and gain NZQA credits.

In addition to breaking

down social barriers,

Kilmarnock is passionate

about making a positive

environmental impact.

After playing a key role in

the Government’s TV Take

Back Programme, they

decided to launch their

own electronic recycling

scheme. The local charity

now processes a range of

electronic items, and provides

both public drop-off

and corporate partnerships

for a small fee.

They dismantle a variety

of e-waste so it can be demanufactured

to recover

the maximum amount of

recyclable materials. This

also ensures hazardous

substances don’t make their

way into landfill.

Recycling these metals

plays an important role

when it comes to conserving

Aotearoa’s natural

resources.

It’s important that we

all actively try to find

ways to reduce our carbon

footprint. That’s how we can

all make a difference.

GRATITUDE: New World Wigram owner James Backhouse, is presented

with a thank you card by Oaklands School pupils Amelia White, Alex

Montague-Ebbs, Emilia Montague-Ebbs, Megan Siave, Declan Siave and

Noah Blake. ​

Oaklands School gets

behind local businesses

• By Kim Thomas

OAKLANDS SCHOOL

is promoting businesses

owned by its families or

Halswell locals as a way

of supporting them in

difficult economic times.

The Halswell-based

school is also giving

thank you cards made by

students to businesses that

have previously supported

fundraising activities.

Oaklands parent teacher

association president

Cameron Montague-Ebbs

said it wanted to thank

and support those who had

given generously to school

fundraising activities in

the past, or businesses

that were owned by school

families.

The PTA, with the

backing of school leaders,

developed the Oaklands

Te Kura o Ōwaka Business

Directory and promoted it

on the school’s newsletter,

website and on the PTA’s

Facebook page.

It hoped when people

needed a product or service

they would consider

giving their custom to

businesses on the list, she

said.

“Covid-19 has had a big

impact on many aspects of

life and we wanted to do

what we could to support

our community,” she said.

“Local business have

been very supportive of

our fundraising activities

in the past but we understand

in this environment

if they are not able to be as

generous as they previously

have.

“Instead of asking, we

wanted to say thank you

and let them know we are

grateful for what they have

already done for our school

community.”

WESTERN NEWS

The school has had to

alter or cancel a number

of fundraising activities

this year to keep pupils

safe, such as regular discos,

sausage sizzles and a quiz

night, Montague-Ebbs said.

The school was still planning

to hold its end-of-year

community celebration,

the school gala, on December

11 from 5.30pm.

“The focus of our gala

this year is a celebration

of each other, and we are

inviting families to come

and enjoy rides, games

and great food with their

families and friends.”

Oaklands School

principal Margaret Trotter

said the local community

was always important to

the school and fostering

that connection was

increasingly important

following the Covid-19

pandemic.

Family history for Coast to Coast hopefuls

The St Andrew’s

College trio for next

year’s Coast to Coast

multisport event has

plenty of experience

to call on before they

tackle the two-day

race from Kumara

Beach to New

Brighton

MEMBERS OF St Andrew’s

College’s mixed team for next

year’s Coast to Coast don’t have

to look too far for advice on

how to tackle the multisport

endurance event for the first

time, as they follow in familiar

footsteps.

Kayaker Georgia Sparks can

get paddling tips for tackling the

Waimakariri from her father

Geoff, a seven-time competitor

and brother Henry, who

represented St Andrew’s in last

year’s 243km slog from Kumara

Beach to New Brighton Pier.

“I’ve done lots of adventures

with my family, but not

kayaking specifically,” Sparks

said.

“I’ve done rafting down the

rivers and some kayaking as

a family, but not on my own

as such, so this will be a good

experience.

“Dad’s done the event a fair

OPPORTUNITIES: Nate Pringle emulates his father and uncle when he tackles the cycling leg of next year’s Coast to Coast

in the schools’ division for St Andrew’s College. Georgia Sparks has the previous Coast to Coast experience of

family members to call on when she makes her debut in the multisport endurance event next year for St Andrew’s College.

few times though, so it’ll be good

to learn from him.”

Nate Pringle also has family

history to fall back on as he

contemplates the cycling leg of

the two-day event on February

12-13, with his father Carl and

uncle Aaron winning the twoperson

team event in 1999.

“I’m really looking forward

to it, we’ve always gone down

and watched so it’ll be cool to be

competing,” he said.

Ben Ferrier is the odd man out

as the first member of his family

to tackle the iconic exercise,

though the runner is wellacquainted

with the terrain.

“We used to live in Westport,

so we’d go past the entrance to

the run course, look up Goat

Pass, and drive past Klondyke

corner,” he said.

Ferrier also has the perfect

place to train with his family

now living at Castle Hill.

“I’ll hopefully get a fair bit

of training around Goat Pass

and Craigieburn. I really enjoy

running, you get to see some

pretty amazing places while

you’re running. You push

yourself and see what you can

achieve. It’s all down to you.”

While the St Andrew’s trio

are training hard individually,

their collective opportunity to

win the school’s division has

been boosted by the team

receiving Kathmandu Academy

prize.

They receive coaching and

mentoring from experienced

multisporter Sam Clark, while

Sparks benefits from a grade 2

whitewater kayaking course and

the use of a kayak for training

and the race.

Pringle has the use of a road

bike on loan and the team camp

for free at the Kumara race

course.

Anthony Wilding village offers john so much

John walks out of his

serviced apartment door

into a wonderful plant-filled

atrium, which is a part of

Anthony Wilding Retirement

Village he particularly enjoys.

There is a vibrant feel

within the atrium, which also

houses a large pond and

water feature. Here in this

Halswell village the residents

and staff go about their daily

business, there are things to

do and people to meet.

John really enjoys the

social aspect of serviced

apartment living, and the

choice of an apartment suits

him. He is in the heart of the

village, gets a cooked midday

meal each day, plus he

has freedom to go and do

what he wants.

John visits his wife Joan

most days who, having

suffered a stroke in 2010, lives

in specialist care in Cashmere.

The couple originally

relocated to Christchurch

from Motueka in 2011, following

the Canterbury earthquakes

and Joan’s health issues.

While they were living

together at Anthony Wilding,

they enjoyed being together in

a townhouse, but when Joan

needed specialist care John

felt the time was right to move

into an apartment where he

could more easily mix and

mingle with fellow residents

and staff.

“Everyone knows each

other. The staff here are

excellent – you wouldn’t get

a better lot of people...

you just can’t fault them.

If you’ve got a complaint or

a question, you get excellent

follow up,” he says.

John is originally from

Timaru and spent his

childhood on the farm where

his parents worked. He too fell

into the management of farms,

prompting an eventual move

to Mahana and the Nelson

region where he farmed sheep

and later in crops. He helped

grow and tend to tobacco

vines, before moving into

kiwifruit and apples after the

tobacco industry underwent a

shakeup from the early 1980s.

He and Joan brought

up three children, with their

daughter Paige now living

in Christchurch, their son

Michael, living in Birregurra,

outside of Geelong in Victoria,

and their other son Tim

working as a travel agent in

Richmond, near Nelson.

When they first moved

into Anthony Wilding in 2011

they immediately joined in

the social events such as

the weekly Happy Hour. As a

couple they settled into the

village well. “You make friends

with everybody, and then you

get to talk to everybody.”

That was before Joan

required more specialised

health care and moved to

Cashmere. Staff still regularly

ask after Joan. “The staff

have been just so kind.”

John loves to keep in

contact with family, and his

apartment walls are adorned

with photos of his family and

grandchildren. He is up to

date with how each of his

grandchildren are progressing

through university.

He also likes that he can

take his car out of the village

each day for a visit Joan, to

keep in touch with the wider

community and do some

shopping. “We get our midday

meal (included in the fee)

in the dining room, but we

get our own breakfast and

tea,” he says.

“We can go down and get

morning tea in the dining room

at 10 am or afternoon tea if we

want to. Plus, there’s always

activities going on.”

John enjoys the easy life at Ryman Healthcare’s Anthony Wilding Village.

Sales Advisor Susie

Alayne says now is a great

time for prospective residents

to come into Anthony Wilding

to take a look at the quality

facilities on offer in the village.

“It’s been fantastic the amount

of interest that’s been around.”

The village has a bowling

green, a pool and a spa,

library, gym, hair and beauty

salon, bar and shop. Both for

independent and serviced

apartment residents, we

offer a fixed weekly fee

for the entire time you

occupy your townhouse or

apartment – guaranteed.*

Preparing young for life’s adversities

Myriad groups help

keep our community

moving. Reporter Bea

Gooding speaks to

Life Education Trust

Canterbury community

engagement manager

Andy Gray about why

the trust has been an

iconic fixture in schools

for the past 30 years

and why he’s involved

Could you tell me a bit

about what the Life Education

Trust does, and how it came

to be what it is today in

Canterbury?

The Life Education Trust

started over 30 years ago, which

started in Canterbury. There’s

now 32 regional trusts across

the country, and one national

branch. The vision is to inspire

tamariki and rangatahi to make

positive choices and to give them

the power to do that. The trust

addresses challenges including

obesity, substance use, mental

health and well-being and

bullying.

We operate in three mobile

classrooms in Canterbury,

they’re like big container shells

that have been turned into

REWARDING: Life Education Trust Canterbury community engagement manager Andy

Gray is passionate about inspiring children to make the right decisions in life.

classrooms and are moved

around different schools –

whether it was as far as Omihi in

North Canterbury, right down

to Rakaia. Whether schools have

35 students or 500 students, we

end up making our way there no

matter where they are.

What issues is the trust

currently facing in the wake of

Covid-19?

Quite a few in all fairness –

when Covid-19 hit during the

first lockdown, even though we

were still continuing to support

the teachers and tamariki during

lockdown, we didn’t get any

school fees come in, and the

funders that we usually used

were all closed down.

It’s been tough, but we

managed to get through it

and we’re in a better position

now. We reached out to a lot

of people that have done quite

well throughout Covid-19, like

supermarkets, and to the Rata

Foundation and Lottery Grants

Board who have helped us out.

With Covid-19 it’s a doubleedged

sword. It’s great that

we’re busier now and we’re

looking to expand to a fourth

classroom because of it. But the

double-edged side of that sword

is obviously with increased

demand it means that more

people are affected, there are

higher anxiety levels.

We’ve learned a lot about

mental health from the

earthquakes in the past 10 years

and also the mosque attacks

where kids have been affected.

Things like a lack of employment

that comes from it just filters

through to the kids, so we expect

to see increased demand over the

next few months.

The trust has been iconic in

Canterbury schools for the past

30 years. What do you attribute

towards its success?

Obviously, the most

memorable thing about Life

Education is Harold the Giraffe.

But the reason why I think we’re

so iconic is because we tend to

react to the issues currently at

hand.

‘It’s the kids’ reactions which I find the most rewarding’

•From page 11

We don’t get any government

or Ministry of Education funding,

so we aren’t led by their

agenda, and it’s why we’re the

number one health education

provider. We don’t want to be led

by what they want, which is why

we work with teachers to adapt

[the lesson]. I think that’s what

makes us so successful.

Why did you decide to join

the trust?

I’ve got a wee eight-year-old

boy and things are a little bit different

now than back in my day;

kids have got different challenges

now, so I just wanted to make

sure I was getting in touch with

what was going on. Kids seem to

be a lot more involved and more

aware of what’s happening around

them because of social media and

access to the internet. That was

my excuse to get involved and

understand what’s happening in

my own child’s head.

What are the rewarding parts

of your job?

The kids – when Harold comes

on board, the kids wander in and

when they see him, they all get

pretty excited to hear what he

has to say. It’s the kids’ reactions

which I find the most rewarding.

Like most jobs, it’s not always

fun and games. What can be

challenging about your role?

I think seeing the statistics

that are pretty grim, like when I

hear about the teen suicide rates

or how many kids are stressed.

About 35 per cent of kids are

stressed at least once a week.

It’s like, bloody hell, these kids

are eight or nine-years-old, they

shouldn’t be stressed, they should

be watching Pokémon on TV or

something.

Tell me a bit about where life

began for you – where did you

grow up? How about family?

I was born in Salford, UK.

When I was about 13-years-old

my folks decided to ship us all

over, with my brothers and sister,

and start life afresh over here. I

ended up going to school down

the road at Christchurch Boys’

High School, and eventually at

the University of Canterbury.

After travelling overseas for a

while, I came back and became

the director at Specsavers (Papanui)

after opening up a franchise

here. After selling that I was

lucky that I had a bit more free to

pick and choose the jobs I wanted

to do, and that’s when the Life

Education Trust job came up.

ICON: The Life Education Trust has been visiting Canterbury

schools for more than 30 years.

My two brothers live in Sunshine

Coast and Gold Coast in

Australia. My sister is here in

Christchurch so she’s not very

far from me, and my parents

are retired now and live in the

Hurunui District.

Do you remember much from

life back in England?

I remember quite a lot of it. It’s

quite a rough spot where we were,

a lot of cars were being nicked

every night and there were a lot

of fights, you could just watch it

from your window - that’s what it

was all to me.

One of my favourite parts

about my home town is the

football, everyone enjoyed a bit

of soccer. You could play it in

the streets, you’d just jump over

the back fence after school and

go play with your friends in the

streets.

Aside from your work, what

do you like to do in your spare

time?

I enjoy any sport, especially

soccer being English and all.

I’ve always the idea of making

something myself so I make short

films on the side.

I make any type of short film,

it’s just a matter of writing a

script and trying to gain funding

to do it.

I’ve always loved movies, the

idea for me growing up was to

become either a football player, a

fireman or a moviemaker.

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

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.
