A FORMER Burnside High School student has

been selected to join a group of young leaders

from across the globe in advocating for a

healthier and safer planet.

Former dux and head prefect for 2020,

E Wen Wong, has been chosen to join Bow Seat

Ocean Awareness Program’s Future Blue Youth

Council.

The 18-year-old is one of 13 young, global

leaders in the programme’s inaugural cohort

of the international council, who will

collaborate online towards environmental

campaigns.

In July she will lead a team of five young

people who are organising the second youth

EnviroPAST – a Christchurch plastic and sustainability

conference.

“I am looking forward to using the council as a

platform to empower and engage people in ocean

conservation and environmental action,” Wong said.

“These issues are global in nature and the

international make-up of the council reflects this

by facilitating collaboration and communication

between young leaders from around the world.”

INTIMIDATION, threats, public

intoxication, theft and fear of

retaliation.

This is the reality Edgeware Village

workers face most days, who

believe these issues can be put down

to a group of “drunk” individuals

who dominate a seating area on the

corner of Cornwall St and Edgeware

Rd.

Workers describe a “posse” of

about three to four men drinking

a “box of Cody’s,” who “harass”

customers for money, often intimidating

them if they refuse, or do not

give enough.

Police say they are now increasing

their presence in the area following

requests from the Edgeware

Business Association to address the

issue, which has worsened in the

last three years.

“There needs to be a co-ordinated

approach with police and businesses

in the village. I’m not sure of the

extent of the problem but police

presence will help,” said Malcolm

Pearce, association chairman and St

Albans Pharmacy owner.

In Brief

GARDEN AWARDS

Judging for the city council’s

Community Pride Garden Awards

2021 in the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

area begins this Saturday. The

awards acknowledge those who

have contributed to maintaining

the Garden City image of

Christchurch by beautifying

their streets and gardens. No

application is required, as judges

view gardens from the street in

participating community board

areas. Gardens can be residential

or commercial, with judging

finishing on February 7, followed

by the presentation of certificates

at award ceremonies in March and

April. Judging for Christchurch

Street and Gardens Awards will

take place at the same time until

February 17.

WAYFINDING SIGN

A temporary wayfinding sign

has been installed at Shirley

Community Reserve. The

Richmond Community Garden

in collaboration with The Green

Lab has a temporary lease to

install a wayfinding trail in the

residential red zone, which

connects people with places and

projects occurring in Richmond.

The sign, which is the start of the

trail, was approved at the latest

Papanui-Innes Community

Board meeting.

CAUSE: The Future Blue Youth Council gives young people the

skills needed to grow as environmental leaders and activists.

Ocean health education

• From page 1

The United States-based nonprofit

organisation aims to engage

youth in ocean conservation and

advocacy through the arts.

Since Bow Seat was founded

in 2011, nearly 18,000 teenagers

from all 50 US states and more

than 100 countries have participated

in its programmes.

The programmes educate students

about the issues impacting

ocean health, uplift youth voices

for conservation, and inspire them

to participate in positive, creative

actions.

The new council builds on

the strength and passion of Bow

Seat’s global participants and their

desire to grow as environmental

leaders and activists.

Council members will collaborate

to create and oversee a new

by-youth, for-youth environmental

programme; and contribute

their experience, creativity, and

insight to inform, advise, and

shape Bow Seat’s educational

initiatives and international outreach.

Said Bow Seat founder and

president Linda Cabot: “We know

E Wen to be an accomplished

poet, innovator, and communitybuilder,

and we couldn’t imagine

this group without her. E Wen’s

commitment to leading through

kindness will be an invaluable addition

to the council.

“The Future Blue Youth Council

is an incredible group of passionate

young leaders, and I can’t wait

to see what they will accomplish

together.”

Chlorine added to

drinking water

WATER SUPPLY to homes

in Casebrook has now been

chlorinated as a

precaution against

potential bacteria and

viruses.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member

Emma Norrish said

the city council added

chlorine to the Grampian

St water supply pump station

while they carry out agetesting

of the groundwater.

Results from the latest batch

of groundwater samples for

one of the wells showed that

water younger than a year old

Emma

Norrish

may be present.

This indicated that it may

still contain bacteria

and viruses which may

present a risk to public

health if left untreated,

said Norrish.

“There has not been

any E. coli detected

in the groundwater at

Grampian pump station,

but the wells are being

chlorinated as a precautionary

measure.”

The testing will finish by

the end of June this year,

where the chlorine will also be

removed.

Ōtukaikino tree trimming/removal

Starting Monday 18 January, for about four weeks, we will

be removing and/or trimming some willows in and around

Ōtukaikino Creek.

The trees border the pedestrian walkway along the creek,

by the popular dog park at The Groynes.

Access will continue, and the pedestrian walkway will be

temporarily diverted to avoid the works area.

‘People are scared of them’

•From page 1

Peter Timbs Meats St Albans

manager David Timbs has had

enough. A police presence would

not do any harm, he said, but he

just wanted them to disappear.

“Every day they’d sit on that

chair with a box of Cody’s. When

they run out of drink they harass

customers for money. They hang

around our food caravan and

intimidate customers,” he said.

“People are scared of them. I

don’t have a solution, but when

one [police car] drives past, that’s

not really a presence is it?”

On one occasion Timbs

caught one of the men leaving

his store with a jacket full of

stolen bacon, which led to a

physical altercation. Some

regular customers were no longer

visiting the store because they felt

threatened.

“One of our customers was

shaken up because she gave them

money but it wasn’t enough. We

usually just get the lads out back

telling them to move on, but if

you do that, and you do it to a

stage where it’s going to annoy

them, they’ll tag your building.”

Next door, Real Fruit Parlour

was tagged with graffiti in

December. Front-of-house worker

and chef Chadi Coira believes it

was retaliation for fighting back.

“There’s this dude that always

David Timbs

walks around stopping people

before they get a chance to open

their car doors, harassing them

for money. He always says that

he’s down from Wellington

because his dad’s died and needs

money for the bus,” she said.

Her co-workers were

“terrified,” so she would usually

tell him to leave.

“I saw him at Riverside Market

one time. I was like, don’t come

back. And after, that’s when

the tag happened so it’s a bit

suspicious.”

Although Coira did not fear

him or the group, she just wanted

them to “go away.”

A Madras St resident, who did

not want to be named, said a man

knocked on her door last month

at 9am asking for money.

She was only wearing a

nightgown at the time. “He said:

‘Oh, you’re not wearing much,’

and tried to put his hand through

the door,” she said.

FreshChoice Edgeware owner

Stephen Anderson said the group

was recently trespassed by police

from entering the supermarket

due to aggressive behaviour

towards staff and shoppers.

Anderson said a meeting

between police and retailers took

place before Christmas, which

resulted in the trespass notice

and the prompt to increase their

presence.

In spite of the notice, the group

still came back to harass and

“frighten” customers for food and

money.

“These guys say to us, well you

can’t do anything because we’re

on the footpath,” he said.

“I haven’t seen the police round

here for ages, I think they can

do more. Why can’t they start

arresting these guys?”

CUT BACK: A large number of willow trees at a dog park

in The Groynes will be removed or trimmed next week.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

Up to 100 willow

trees to go at park

A LARGE number of willow

trees by a popular dog park at

The Groynes are going to be

trimmed or removed from next

week.

Environment Canterbury

staff, along with a contractor,

will be cutting back the trees on

an 800m section of Ōtukaikino

Creek, between The Groynes

and Dickeys Rd.

The trees, which border the

pedestrian walkway along

Ōtukaikino Creek by the dog

park, are being removed or cut

back because they are in poor

health. Some are dropping limbs

into the creek and restricting

the flow of the waterway, while

others are showing signs of dieback.

Access to the walkway will

continue while work on the

trees is done, but there will be

some temporary diversions in

place for about four weeks.

Environment Canterbury

estimated that 100 or fewer trees

will be removed. New plants will

be planted in their place.

Initiative to get children growing

fruit and veges led by Lions club

A PROJECT which educates

children on the art of growing

your own fruit, vegetables and

flowers has sprouted at Belfast

School.

The venture led by the

Riccarton-Waimairi Lions Club,

starts this Saturday and includes

the installation of raised

vegetable boxes, outdoor tables

and seating within the school

grounds.

The club wanted to support

a community project in the

city’s north-west, and the need

for gardening facility was

identified during discussions

with the school, the Belfast

Community Network and

the Northwood Residents

Association.

“The extension to the

existing garden educational

area is to facilitate two teachers

who are dedicated to teaching

the pupils how to grow

vegetables, fruit and flowers

and in turn encourage pupils

to develop a garden at home to

provide fresh vegetables for the

family,” Geoff Rountree, of the

lions club, said.

“The teachers not only teach

gardening in school time but

also in lunch hours.”

Club members will be at

the Main North Rd site this

Saturday to start the project,

but still needed more “people

power” armed with gardening

and battery-powered tools.

Rountree said with the project

under way, further school

and community projects were

identified during discussions

with local groups.

Because of this, he said it

provided an opportunity to

establish a new Lions club

in the area to continue

supporting future needs in the

community.

“There is an opportunity for

a Lions club to be based within

the Belfast-Northwood area

supporting this community,”

said Rountree.

“We seek your consideration

and assistance for this to

happen.”

PLAN: A gardening project will soon sprout at Belfast School, which will teach children the

art of growing your own fruit, vegetables and flowers. ​

Foraging area to sprout up in red zone

A MUSHROOM-themed

education, play and foraging

area will sprout up in the

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor

Regeneration Area in the coming

months.

The Mushroom Room will

feature at least six different native

and exotic species of edible

mushrooms for foragers, up to

five large art installations by

local artists,

four engaging

nature play

pieces, and

interactive

signage to

educate people

about the

Hayley

Guglietta

fast-growing

fungi.

The project

has received a $19,600 grant

from red zone consultative group

Te Tira Kāhikuhiku to help

bring the project to life by the

end of April this year.

Project proponent spokewoman

Hayley Guglietta said most of

the grant will be used to install

the nature play and artwork

pieces on the corner of Evelyn

Cousins Ave and River Rd in

Richmond.

The group has already spent

the past six months preparing

EDUCATION: A mushroom-themed education, play and foraging area will soon sprout in

the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area in April.

and inoculating the soil so that it

can be added to the site.

“Over the Covid-19 lockdown

there were lots of people out

using the former residential red

zone area. We want to encourage

people to continue doing that,

and connecting both with nature

and the area,” said Guglietta.

“This is the first part of a wider

vision we have. We’ve got exciting

plans to transform the area

from Swanns Rd to North Avon

Rd into an educational, familyfriendly

art trail and nature play

area that weaves among the old,

established gardens and fruit

trees that we want to continue

tending.”

TTK chairwoman Chrissie

Williams said that the project

will educate people on mushrooms,

while also providing a

new community hub for Richmond

residents and visitors.

“This project will be an

educational experience, but I’m

most excited about the use of

large-scale artworks to engage

the community” she said.

TTK is able to approve applications

to use former red zone land

on a temporary basis and can

issue grants for up to $20,000 to

help enable projects and activate

the regeneration areas.

Said Williams: “I really encourage

people to apply to use

the former residential red zone

land for community initiatives.

“We love ideas that connect

local communities, involve

volunteers and bring people into

the regeneration areas, and the

Red Zone Transitional Land Use

Fund can help bring those ideas

to life.”

The Mushroom Room is an

initiative of the Riverlution

Collective and driven by the

Richmond Community Garden.

5 DIY ways to improve your kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most influential

rooms in a home. Not only is it a room that we

all use daily, it’s one that can also influence

buyers when it comes to purchasing your

home. Kitchens are one of the most expensive

rooms to completely renovate and buyers

will appreciate it being done for them. But

you don’t have to spend a lot of money on

improving your kitchen.

A new coat of paint - If your kitchen feels

outdated or needs a new look, paint is your

answer. You can easily repaint the ceiling and

walls, cabinets, splashback tiles and even your

benchtop to freshen up the look and feel of

your kitchen. Take advantage of the latest

trending colour schemes to attract and appeal

to your buyer demographic.

New cabinets and handles - Swap out your

dated or tired looking cabinets and handles

for more modern, eye-catching designs to

give your kitchen an easy face lift. If you’ve

already painted the cabinets, replacing the

old handles will help you tie together the

colour scheme and make your kitchen more

stylish. Contemporary matte black handles

continue to dominate the kitchen trends as

they’re simple and can suit any interior style

so don’t go too crazy when you choose your

new designs.

Clean up the grout - Grout makes all the

difference in freshening a tired space. If you

have a tiled splashback, cleaning the grout

can make it look brand new. The same goes

for the tiles around the entire kitchen. You

might find that cleaning the silicone seals

simply isn’t working and you may need to

replace it altogether.

Replace your sink tap - If you’re feeling a little

more advanced in your DIY skills, consider

replacing your sink tap fixtures. An old tap

can easily date a kitchen and given how often

they’re used, have leaking issues or less

features than newer tap fixtures. Something

new and stylish will help tie the entire design

of your kitchen together and help make it look

brand new.

Include some art - Despite all of your DIY

effort, your kitchen may still need some

personality. Try hanging art or prints to help

bring the kitchen into the modern world

and create a vibe that buyers can associate

with. As long as the art is well out of reach of

water or flames, it can help add some colour

and texture to the space. You don’t need to

completely renovate your kitchen to bring it

into the modern world but you can improve

your kitchen with these simple DIY tips.

Property Management Education is the key to ensuring you are a

successful (and compliant!) Landlord

Happy new Year! While I know a lot of people

were very pleased to see the back of 2020, I

am sure you will agree we are now wondering

what 2021 has in store for us!

What we do know is that the latest round of

new legislation which was announced last

year is due to take effect on 11th February, so

it is almost upon us.

If you have not already studied up on these

latest amendments, then there is no time

like the present to ensure you are not only

aware of the changes but understand them, as

there is a very real difference, and, as is often

the case with tenancy law, I find that a lot of

people are confused and are working more on

‘rumours’ rather than facts.

The biggest changes are around the tenures

of tenancies, a tenant’s ability to make

alterations to the property, and a tenant’s

ability to re-assign their tenancy. This all

takes effect with any new tenancy agreement

signed from 11th February 2021.

While these changes certainly do sound daunting,

and I can almost hear your gasps of surprise, in

fact, if the processes are well managed and you

have an understanding of the legislation and your

obligations, then they are not anywhere near as

scary as they sound at first.

As I have said before, education is the key

to ensuring you have a successful rental

property. Gone are the days where you could

just ‘wing it’ and now more than ever it is

important to ensure you are on top of things,

and that you comply as failure to do so could

result in some hefty infringement fines.

If you would like a copy of the resources we

have put together to assist landlords please
