Residents’ feedback wanted

on council services, facilities

• 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.

St Albans

Residents’ Association

chairman

Jason Harvey

said in spite of

Covid-19 and the

lockdown, the

city council was

delivering well on

its facilities such

as parks in the area.

Jason

Harvey

“It’s been such a messed-up

year with Covid-19 and the lockdown,

but overall, our parks and

facilities are looking fabulous,”

he said.

“I’m also really excited about

the St Albans Community Centre

construction and the skate

park being upgraded.”

But there was always room for

improvement, he said.

HAVE YOUR SAY: The city council’s Christchurch Residents’ Survey gauges whether its services and facilities are meeting

residents’ needs, which includes roading matters such as the Christchurch Northern Corridor. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

He described the major concerns

residents raised over the

Christchurch Northern Corridor

construction around Cranford

St, including its roadworks, and

increases in traffic because of it.

Harvey believed public transport

should be prioritised in the

area, and continue making improvements

to walking and cycle

access to major shopping centres.

Said Harvey: “The roads are

still the main concern, what’s

been done looks okay, but no one

is content about it. We’ve pushed

for the focus to be on public

transport and resident safety,

rather than accommodating

more traffic.

“Hopefully the message gets

through to the community

board and the council that the

community is happy with public

transport.” • Turn to page 12

Ollie helps design youth 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

Christchurch after his dad’s

death.

“I was really struggling to

cope with renewed grief and

APPROVED: Resource consent has been granted for a

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

Inset: Ollie Latimer.

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-stop-shop

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 well-being

for 10 to 25-year-olds.

It will provide support services

including access to catch-up

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.

Changes to

bin collection

on agenda

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.

Halloween Event a

great success!

The secret to making low-cost

decorating work

This was a fantastic free community

event we held in our local St James

Park and it was a delight to host! The

children’s costumes ranged from

scary vampires to fairy princesses and

their participation in our Halloween

characters scavenger hunt was

outstanding. Thank you to all the

families for their amazing support.

We are lucky to be part of such a

fantastic community. We are looking

forward to hosting this again next year!

If you own a rental property then

now is the time to set a plan in place

to ensure you can have a peaceful

uninterrupted break. But there are a

couple of extra things to put on your

“get ready list” this year.

The first is the fast approaching

deadline for all new tenancy

agreements having to have a Healthy

Homes Statement from 1st December

2020. If you have a tenant moving in

after this – you need to be getting this

sorted right now!

The second thing to consider are

rent payments - contact your tenants

in writing to advise them of their

rent payment dates over the holiday

period. Ask them to ensure they have

You may not have a huge budget

for decorating you home but this

shouldn’t stop you from having well

decorated spaces. Instead we should

all be able to celebrate our own

unique style without breaking the

bank. So what is the secret to making

low cost decorating work without

looking like you shopped at the $2

dollar shop? Read on and find out!

We’ve all seen those gorgeous homes

that look perfectly curated with high

end fixtures, fittings and decor. The

secret to making a space look fantastic

without spending up big, is as simple

as using a combination of investment

pieces and lower cost items. It really

only takes an investment piece or two,

to make a whole room look expensive.

You might decide to invest in the hard

furnishings (couch and buffet for

example) and then everything else in

the space can be bought on a budget.

You could seek out bargains online

through websites such as trademe.

co.nz and NZ Sale or search local

homeware stores for specials or

clearances.

Another trick is to collect over time.

You don’t need to be in the position to

purchase everything to fill a room at

the same time. Layer your home with

items you find and let them tell a story

of who you are and the adventures

you’ve been on. I understand it can be

sufficient funds in the bank so that their

automatic payment will still process on

the next banking day. Also, remember

to check the payments are in your bank

– don’t wait until after Christmas when

arrears could be piling up!

And thirdly, maintenance – are you

available and easy to get hold of if

something needs urgent attention

over the holidays, will you have good

cell phone coverage where you are

staying? Do you know which plumbers

and electricians are working through

and are available on public holidays?

You can almost guarantee that things

will go wrong at the most inopportune

times, so be prepared and know what

tradespeople are on call over the

holiday period.

really tempting to get the room done

as quickly as you can, but honestly

the interest you can create when you

decorate over time, is really worth

the investment of time. This idea of

decorating can actually be continued

right throughout the home including

its hard design.

Our homes should be a reflection of

our personality, not a highly curated,

expensive showpiece. Following

the principle of mixing a few key

investment pieces with less expensive

pieces can help you get the look you

are after without the financial blow

out!

Finally, don’t forget the upcoming

legislation due to take effect on 11th

February 2021. Are you ready? There

are some components to the new

legislation that you should be aware

of because as I always say, knowledge

and education is the key to owning a

successful investment property.

If you have any questions or concerns

regarding any of the above, please don’t

hesitate to give me a call.

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

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 5

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

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.

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.

Outdoor learning fun

PUPILS AT Paparoa Street

School took part in an ‘outdoor

classroom day’ recently, as part

of a global movement to inspire

and celebrate outdoor play and

learning at home and at school.

This was the second year

the school has held the event

in conjunction with the city

council, which supplied park

rangers to assist with a range

of outdoor activities and

maintenance in the nearby

Rutland Reserve.

The school acts as kaitiakitanga

(guardians) of the reserve.

The pupils helped with the

weeding, planting and mulching,

after which they returned to the

school and finished the day with

various fun activities including

hutch building, cycling, face

painting and sack races.

Residents’ views

• From page 1

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 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.”

This year’s survey included specific

questions that will help the

city council decide what it should

prioritise in the LTP.

“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.

Outward Bound life-changing

Kylie Joy has “cheated

death” three times

throughout life and

attributes her resilience

to the lessons she learned

during the challenges of

Outward Bound.

THE AVONHEAD resident embarked

on a three-week course

in 2018 and since returning, has

made some major, in some cases

profound, changes.

She said the course has given

her a “second chance” at life,

helped her mend bridges and

build relationships.

“Since Outward Bound I

have managed to repair my

relationship with my mum and

strengthen my bond with my

dad and my husband,” said Joy.

“I’ve lost 20kg and have even

changed employment recently

– only made possible by the

pandemic – to a vocation more

appropriate for my skill set.

“I have made difficult decisions

such as leaving operations

in St John ambulance which I

have volunteered for many years

and have changed my whole attitude

on life – you could say I’m

more appreciative of the simple

things in life.”

Outdoor Bound helps people

reach their full potential

through challenges in the

RESILIENCE: Kylie Joy believes the physical and emotional

skills she learned from Outward Bound has helped her

overcome major obstacles in her life. ​

outdoors by conquering fears,

pushing limits and learning

about yourself through success,

failure, self-reflection and

feedback.

The programme provides

emotional and physical skills

transferable into daily life

through activities with real

consequences, such as sailing,

kayaking, high ropes, tramping

and more.

Joy has experienced lifethreatening

health conditions

in the past two years since

returning from Outward Bound,

including severe and chronic

pancreatitis, and bacteremia (a

blood infection).

The chronic pancreatitis also

caused significant weight loss

and other complications which

the doctor had told her “threatened

to shorten her life,” after

having operations to manage the

disease.

The bacteremia, caused by an

infected IV line, has an 80 per

cent mortality rate. She spent

three months in rehabilitation

rebuilding the use of her arm

after the infection degraded her

muscles.

“I’ve cheated death three

times,” she said, referring to

bouts of life-threatening medical

conditions and subsequent

surgeries.

“I know that it has been the

resilience I learned at Outward

Bound along with my faith that

has saved me from a very early

grave.”

When the borders open again,

Joy planned to travel to Australia

to see her mother and closer

to home, planned to do a 10-day

tramp on Stewart Island.

“These are challenges I would

not have attempted if Outward

Bound had not given me the

skills and guts to do. They will

say I had this in me all along,

but I couldn’t see it.”

“Grit and determination has

got me to where I am now and

they were lessons from the

course. My story is ongoing and

it’s by no means the end of the

battle, but I’m still here.”

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Last month I wrote about ‘market madness’

and the incredible sense of urgency to

purchase, and, so far, that’s continuing. Now

I’m told, by the media as much as my own

observations, that much of this is driven by

FOMO or ‘Fear of Missing Out’.

And it’s absolutely correct. Auctions and

their counterpart deadline sales are being

brought forward in large numbers, meaning

buyers aren’t waiting for the actual auction

or deadline date to make their move.

They’re determined to pursue their property

dreams right now! In one day last week I

received notification (as we do across the

entire brand to ensure we can inform

any interested party) of 16 auctions or

deadline sales being brought forward due

to an acceptable offer being made. And,

remember, if that’s for an auction, the offer is

absolutely unconditional.

Over time, I’ve seen the full range of

emotions, including tears from first-home

buyers with a new baby in arms and the odd

raging bull yelling at the price of a property

going beyond expectation and budget.

So, the questions are: what should I do and

when should I do it?

And I think the easiest answer is this line

from Tony Alexander, a well-known (and

often quoted) economist who, despite being

the most optimistic of the economists, is

probably also one of the most accurate.

“Waiting for prices to drop hasn’t

been a good strategy for the last three

decades.”

And it’s true.

Personally, I’ve tried to favour a measured

approach to real estate purchases and that

Safe space for young cyclists opens

• By Bea Gooding

LEARNING HOW to ride a bike

and navigating road rules just got a

whole lot easier for children.

The Longview Pl cul-de-sac in

Burwood has been transformed into

a learn to ride track complete with

road markings, stop and give way

signs, pedestrian crossings and mini

obstacles.

Found at the red zone’s East x East

space, the circular track enables

children to learn road rules on

their bikes and scooters without

the pressure of other cars in a fun

environment.

The project was organised by Life

in Vacant Spaces, which works with

community groups by bringing

their ideas to life for events and

activities at underutilised spaces.

Said LiVS director Rachael Shiels:

“The project has been so rewarding

in terms of community involvement

and getting this off the ground. It’s

a really fantastic thing for the east,

and for these communities who

have been through so much.”

Including the track, a fix-it station

will be available to repair bikes, and

children can attend workshops to

Activities within the 9ha area

was a collaboration between Land

Information NZ and Life in Vacant

Spaces, with funding grants from

the George Sevicke Jones Trust.

TEAM WORK: (From left) – East x East co-ordinator Hannah

Watkinson, Burwood councillor Phil Mauger, Coastal Ward

Community Board member Jo Zervos and Citycare Group’s

Thomas Parackal at the new learn to ride track at its opening on

Saturday.

As the landowner of the Crownowned

red zone area, LINZ has

approved LiVS’ short-term use of

the space.

Volunteers from the Student

Volunteer Army, Rangi Ruru Girls’

School, Cashmere High School,

Christchurch Girls’ High School,

Papanui High School and assistance

from the City Care group helped install

signs, patch potholes, painting

and planting.

The track was first proposed in

2018 after the community wanted

more safe spaces suitable for families,

bikes, and were dog-friendly.

Said Shiels: “Kids are small and

easy to miss by cars, so they’ll be

able to learn with family and friends

out in the open without doing it in

‘real life’.”

The learn to ride track will be in

place for two years, with options to

remain longer if successful.

SKILLS: Michael (left) and Conall Fenton try out the

new learn to ride track in Burwood.

Year 9 and 10 students from the Canterbury region

competed for top honours in the junior indoor volleyball

championships held at Pioneer Stadium last weekend.

The annual three-day tournament attracted an increased

number of teams this year, with 32 girls teams and 18 boys

teams competing in two divisions. The winning teams go

on to the South Island championships to be held later

this year in Invercargill. In the hotly-contested first division,

Burnside High School’s girls year 9 green team fought a

close battle with Rangiora New Life School, but lost in two

sets finishing fourth in their pool.

Sofia Healey waits patiently for the action to start.
