Work to improve entrance

to shopping centre starts

• By Bea Gooding

RESIDENTS WILL finally see

action at a shopping centre entrance

this week following more than a

decade of concerns for the welfare of

pedestrians accessing the area.

Night works to improve pedestrian

safety at the Barrington shopping

centre entrance started on Sunday

and includes removing the right turn

out of the complex on to Barrington

St.

Along with addressing the right

turn, there will also be a new kerb

and footpath, a marked pedestrian

zone across the mall entrance and

a yellow line extension which will

remove on-street car parks.

Residents and the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community Board have

called for the right turn to be banned

for the past 10 years but were met

with many delays.

In the past two years alone the

upgrades have been delayed twice.

Construction was meant to finish by

May 2019 but the completion date

was moved to 2020.

Last year, however, the project was

pushed back once again to early this

year due to final touches being made

to the mall’s resource consent, which

took longer than anticipated.

Roadworks wreck residents’ sleep

• By Samantha Mythen

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS and long

waiting times.

These have been the daily

realities for Heathcote residents

since February 14, while Port

Hills Rd is upgraded nightly

from 6pm to 7am.

Although the works are set

to be finished today, residents

have been frustrated with lack of

consideration and contact from

the city council.

Everyone is grateful the road

is finally being fixed, however,

residents cannot understand why

the work has been occurring at

night in a primarily residential

area.

Said Heathcote resident Judy

Stack: “The contractors are doing

a great job, the road was in

shocking condition. Our beef

is that when we go to bed, they

begin to start work. The noise is

completely intrusive.”

Heathcote Ward councillor

Sara Templeton understands the

resident’s frustrations.

Although she has been in

touch with the contractors, she

said they only have a few shifts

left.

“It will be a complete and

smooth road by Thursday morning,”

she said.

Cosmetic Nail

Restoration

Nail Restoration is a painless application that

restores the appearance of an individual’s

natural nails. Nail Restoration is a cosmetic

procedure designed to improve the appearance

of toenails damaged by fungus and other nail

disorders.

NOISY: Roadworks that have upset residents are expected to finish today.

PHOTO: JUDY STACK

Stack lives in a new house,

built after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake with double glazing,

yet she still hears the construction

and it has been making the

house shudder, echoing up the

valley.

“Why can’t they do the work

during the day, reducing the

road to a single lane?” she said.

“It is absolutely not good

enough that they are doing all

this work in the small hours of

the morning.” Cosmetic Nail

City council streets maintenance

manager Mark Pinner

said the work was taking place

at night instead of the day as a

permanent single lane in one

direction would have resulted

in a large detour which was not

considered desirable.

Said Pinner: “To maintain the

traffic flow with lights or controls

during peak times in daylight

would also significantly reduce

the time for the physical work

to proceed which would in turn

result in substantially more time

on site. The use of night shifts

also lessened the impact to use

of access to passengers accessing

bus stops.”

Residents, however, say in spite

of numerous works occurring

along the road after the past few

years, this is the first set of night

works. They still do not understand

the decision.

Last week, Stack rang the city

council to see if the situation

could be remedied.

A noise abatement officer rang

back and said the project manager

for the works would be in

touch. She never heard back.

Said Stack: “The fact that when

you are really impacted by something

and you ring the council

for help and maybe someone will

“With over 75 years of combined business

experience, we personalise home and

business loans for Cantabrians.”

call you back, does not look good

on the council’s behalf.”

Due to another sleepless night,

Stack’s young grandson had

missed school on Monday.

Ann-Marie Locker is another

concerned resident who wonders

why the work has to be done at

night.

“It’s been absolutely horrendous,”

she said.

Her children have both woken

up with headaches and have also

had two days off school.

Although, every house

along the road was meant to

be informed about the road

works, neither Stack or Locker

received a notice in their

letterbox.

The notice says: “There will

be periods of construction noise

and vibration. The contractor

will ensure noise is kept to a

minimum.”

Stack believes this is ironic

after no action has been taken

to mitigate the negative effects

on residents in spite of her complaint.

She said this shows the

council does not care.

Work to repair Port Hills Rd

began after being deferred since

2017. The wastewater system and

water mains were replaced over

the past two years and the road is

now being resurfaced.

DANGEROUS: The shopping centre exit on Barrington St will no longer put

road users and pedestrians at risk, seen here in 2019. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Right turn into Barrington St

permanently closed

• From page 1

The community wanted

to see work done sooner

rather than later as the

problematic entrance put

both motorists making the

right turn and pedestrians

in danger.

They were especially

concerned as the footpath

was near Spreydon

Library and children’s

playgrounds.

The boundary separating

traffic and pedestrian

access were not made clear,

putting pedestrians at risk

of being hit by a car.

Board chair Karolin

Potter told Southern View

earlier this month said the

works were identified as

one of its priorities in

the coming months and

said she was looking

forward to seeing them

implemented.

The board’s 2020-2022

plan outlined it would

advocate to have the work

27 February - 23 March 27 February 2021 - 23 March 2021

completed “as a matter of

urgency.”

For the next four weeks,

contractors will work

mostly at night, with some

day works to be expected.

The right turn has

already been permanently

closed, traffic will be detoured

to other entrances

27 February - 23 March 2021

and lane shifts will be put

in place.

Construction is expected

to be completed by late

March.

Troy Our Greatest Story retold

by Stephen Fry

Following Top Ten bestsellers Mythos and Heroes, this third volume retells the epic

tale of Troy

The story of Troy speaks to all of us - the kidnapping of Helen, a queen celebrated for

her beauty, sees the Greeks launch a thousand ships against the city of Troy, to which

they will lay siege for ten whole years. It is a terrible war with casualties on all sides

as well as strained relations between allies, whose consequences become tragedies.

In Troy you will find heroism and hatred, love and loss, revenge and regret, desire and

despair. It is these human passions, written bloodily in the sands of a distant shore,

that still speak to us today.

Because Of You

by dawn French

The instant Sunday Times bestseller 2020

After five long years of waiting for a new novel, Dawn’s millions of fans will fall in love

with this tantalising story of motherhood. This is a book about mothers and daughters,

love and loss, mistakes and regret. It’s a book about nature and nurture.Ultimately,

it’s a book about what makes us who we are - it is a story for all of us. Following

her wonderful bestsellers A Tiny Bit Marvellous, Oh Dear Silvia and According to Yes,

Because Of You is Dawn French’s stunning new book, told with her signature humour,

warmth and so much love.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Life

by Jane Sherron de Hart

In this bestselling comprehensive, revelatory biography - fifteen years of interviews and

research in the making - historian Jane Sherron De Hart explores the central experiences

that crucially shaped Ginsburg’s passion for justice, her advocacy for gender equality,

and her meticulous jurisprudence. As a young girl Ruth grew up during the Holocaust

and World War II and her journey begins with her mother, who died tragically young

but whose intellect inspired her daughter’s feminism. It stretches from Ruth’s days as

a baton twirler at Brooklyn’s James Madison High School to Cornell University, and to

Harvard and Columbia Law Schools; to becoming one of the first female law professors

in the US and having to fight for equal pay and hide her second pregnancy to avoid

losing her job; and to arguing momentous anti-sex discrimination cases before the US

Supreme Court. All this, even before being nominated in 1993 to become the second

woman on the court, where her crucial decisions and dissents are still making history.

An Exquisite Legacy

by George Gibbs

The biography of one of New Zealand’s greatest naturalist-artists, George Hudson,

1867-1946, who was one of New Zealand’s pioneer naturalists, and devoted his life to

collecting and describing the New Zealand insect fauna. He amassed what is probably

the largest collection of New Zealand insects, now housed at Te Papa. Hudson also wrote

seven books on insect fauna between 1898 and 1946, each illustrated in colour with

immaculate paintings of the specimens, a total of over 3100 paintings, mainly focused

on months and butterflies. An Exquisite Legacy is a biography of Hudson, written by

his grandson Dr George Gibbs, himself a prominent entomologist. Hudson remained

an amateur naturalist his whole life, but his contribution to our knowledge about the

New Zealand insect world is of enduring significance, while his artistic legacy, built up

over nearly seven decades, is truly remarkable. This extensive collection of exquisite

illustrations is without parallel in New Zealand. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this

biography of George Hudson is the first chance for most people to see his exquisite

artwork.

Girl with a Sniper Rifle An eastern Front Memoir

by yulia Zhukova

In this vivid first-hand account we gain unique access to the inner workings of Stalin’s

Central Women’s Sniper School, near Podolsk in Western Russia.

Luliia was a dedicated member of the Komsomol (the Soviet communist youth

organisation) and her parents worked for the NKVD. She started at the sniper school

and eventually became a valued member of her battalion during operations against

Prussia. She persevered through eight months of training before leaving for the Front

on 24th November 1944 just days after qualifying. Joining the third Belorussian Front

her battalion endured rounds of German mortar as well as loudspeaker announcements

beckoning them to come over to the German side. Luliia recounts how they would be in

the field for days, regularly facing the enemy in terrifying one-on-one encounters. She

sets down the euphoria of her first hit and starting her “battle count” but her reflection on

how it was also the ending of a life. These feelings fade as she recounts the barbarous

actions of Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

Pupils prepare gardens for festival

PLANTS, FLOWERS and vegetables

are sprouting at schools across the

city as they finalise their designs for

the Grow Ōtautahi garden festival

next month.

The St Mark’s School and five

others will be taking part in the Rātā

Foundation School Gardens exhibitions

at the three-day festival.

The garden design at the school

has been created and developed by

junior and senior pupils with various

artworks from across the school.

It comes after the event was cancelled

last year due to the Covid-19

pandemic.

Pupils have been sharing unique

stories of their communities by creating

special gardens.

The Rātā Foundation School Gardens

celebrate the best of the local

environment, with a view to sustainability

and education.

Festival director Sandi MacRae

said she was impressed at the work

and detail in the school gardens.

“What I’m seeing in the lead-up to

the event is really blowing me away.

The schools are not only creating

wonderful reflections of their local

communities, they’re also weaving

the work into their learning with a

focus on community, sustainability,

creativity and celebrating our environment,”

she said.

“The plants are growing well and I

can’t wait to see them on-site in the

Christchurch Botanic Gardens.

“The commitment of the teachers,

children and local communities

involved is inspirational, and I

know visitors to the festival will

be delighted with what they have

created.”

Rātā Foundation chief executive

Leighton Evans said the festival

provided a unique opportunity to

celebrate the Garden City while increasing

environmental awareness.

It also supported educating

children about sustainable growing

practices.

“The Rātā Foundation School Gardens

provide a pathway for building

the next generation of gardeners and

eco-warriors,” said Evans.

The Grow Ōtautahi Christchurch

Garden Festival Trust is closely

monitoring the national Covid-19

situation, following all advice from

the Government and will respond

“swiftly” to any changing circumstances.

Said MacRae: “We are all focused

on the task at hand and gearing-up to

welcome people to the first-ever Grow

Ōtautahi. This has always included a

sharp focus on public safety and we’ll

have appropriate hygiene and healthrelated

processes in place.”

Classmates celebrate 80 years of friendship

• By Bea Gooding

NEARLY EIGHT decades

have passed since the Opawa

School class of 1949 said their

final goodbyes to the place that

brought about many years of joy.

It might have been goodbye to

school, but not so much to each

other. Now in their 80s, a handful

of former pupils still meet for

an annual potluck lunch, but this

year’s reunion was a special one.

Thirteen gathered at the

McLeans Island Camping

Ground pavilion to celebrate

primer 1s 80th year of friendship

since 1941.

Eleanor Gillespie usually

organises the reunions and believed

a former teacher, who

taught their class for four years,

was responsible for their long

friendship.

“We put that down to a teacher

we had from standard 1 to 4, he

held that class together like a

family. He wasn’t married and

didn’t have a family of his own,”

she said.

“He was a good teacher. He

spent a lot of time with us, he

used to take us to Lyttelton on

the train, we did monthly walks

over the Bridle Path and he used

to take the boys out for weekends

to a bach in Waikuku.

“They were like his sons.”

The class comprised of about

50 students who all walked or

biked to school, even in the

snow. The days were split in half,

Albans and Valerie Percy (nee Shipp), 84, of Shirley.

from 9am to noon, then 1pm to

3pm.

Every week the pupils took a

tram to Sydenham School where

the boys took woodwork classes

and the girls learned how to

cook.

“My favourite days were sports

days, I loved basketball and I was

a good swimmer,” said Eleanor.

World War 2 was well involved

by the time Eleanor started

school, but as a child, life did not

feel that way.

No one came to school without

lunch, but having suitable clothing

was another story.

Said Eleanor: “I think we all

Three people in the photo below can be found in this primer 1 class of

Opawa School in 1942 . Front row – Rosemary Harper (nee Lane), sixth

Bamford, second from right.

went through hardships, there

were a lot of families that had

hardships with clothes. I remember

the blackouts at school, we

had to have our curtains across

the windows during the war.

“But when you’re in that situation

you don’t realise they’re

hardships.”

Eleanor later attended Avonside

Girls’ High School along

with two other classmates from

Opawa.

Many of the boys went on to

own their own businesses, became

teachers and missionaries,

and two were Rhodes scholars at

Christchurch Boys’ High School.

Former pupil Barry Dineen

notably became the New

Zealand managing director for

Shell until 1995 and former city

councillor David Close edited a

book chronicling stories of “The

Class of 1941” and the lives that

followed.

But young women at the time

did not have much choice in the

career department. Eleanor did

not know of any girls who went

to university. They were given

two options - working in an office

or life at home.

Eleanor decided to take

shorthand typing lessons and

eventually worked as a typist for

advertising agencies.

“You didn’t get a choice like

this day and age.”

Since leaving school the class

stayed in touch, more so in the

past two decades. Opawa School

had its 100th anniversary in

1997, where it was decided that

the class would do their own

reunions from then on.

“Each time I think that I can’t

do this anymore, I’ve suddenly

got the energy [to organise it],”

Eleanor said.

ESTUARY MATTERS

Event planned to farewell Godwits

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust is a

non-profit organisation formed to protect one of

New Zealand’s most important coastal wetlands.

Each week, board members will discuss matters

regarding the estuary, its rich history and what

makes it unique. This week Tanya Jenkins writes

about an event to commemorate the departure

of the godwits

FAREWELL TO the amazing

godwit birds who will soon be

leaving for Alaska.

In September each year as

many as 2000 godwits birds fly

non-stop from their breeding

grounds in Alaska to spend

summer here with us.

This journey is 12,000km and

takes eight days and nights.

But it is time to say farewell

as they will soon depart again

to return to Alaska for another

breeding season. Right now, they

are feeding as much and fast as

they possibly can to gain enough

weight to survive the long journey

back.

The males will have to make

an extra effort to produce their

stunning golden brown “breeding

plumage” in time for the

departure.

This is a vital time for us to

ensure our dogs are always on

a lead when walking along the

estuary edge as not to disturb

them.

Research has shown that every

time birds are disturbed it takes

approximately 40min of nervous

flying around before they feel

safe enough to settle and continue

to feed.

If this happens several times a

day they are at risk of not being

able to gain enough energy to

complete the 14,000km journey

back. Yes, it’s even longer than

when they return as they fly back

via the Yellow Sea for one stop to

top up on food before the last leg.

The Estuary Trust together

with the city council commemorates

this amazing annual feat

this year on Sunday. You are

warmly invited to join a gathering

at South Shore Spit Reserve

(end of Rockinghorse Rd).

From 5.30pm there will be

a free sausage sizzle and drink

stall, live music and free “paint

a godwit garden ornament ” for

children to take home.

The Estuary Trust will have an

information stall to answer any

questions you have on the godwit

and “everything estuary.”

At 6pm, councillor James

Daniels will provide a karakia

before our Mayor Lianne Dalziel

welcomes us.

City council park ranger

Andrew Crossland will provide

us with facts and figures of the

godwits before we are taken on

a guided walk to view the birds

up close.

Parking will be available or

take the No 60 Bus that leaves

every 30min from the Bus

Exchange.

FAREWELL:

Hundreds of

godwits travel

across the globe

each year to spend

their summer at

South Shore Spit.

They will soon

depart and return

to Alaska.

Email: matt.jackson@ccc.govt.nz

The Applicant proposes to construct an earth embankment/flood detention dam across the upper Cashmere

Valley, between 79 Shalamar Drive to McVicar Drive - Roundhill Rise intersection, Cashmere, Christchurch,

referred to within the application as the Cashmere Valley Dam. The earth embankment/dam is to be

constructed for flood detention purposes to reduce flood risk downstream on the Heathcote River corridor

back to pre-earthquake levels and improve water quality. The works form part of the Upper Heathcote Storage

Scheme.

The legal description of the site which the above applications relate include Lot 501 DP 515978 and Lot 502 DP

515978. Water held by the dam would be on those parcels plus Lot 2 DP 45934 and Lot 1 DP 52720.

The proposal includes the construction of the earth embankment in and over the bed of Cashmere drain,

including the installation of a bypass culvert in the bed of Cashmere drain as part of the dam construction,

damming of floodwater, permanent diversion of a section of Cashmere Valley Drain, and associated earthworks

for the dam abutment within a high soil erosion risk area.

The following resource consents are being sought to facilitate the proposed activity:

• CRC203551: A land use consent (s9) for earthworks in an area of High Soil Erosion Risk area for the

construction of the dam abutment to tie the dam into an adjacent residential road (Shalamar Drive);

• CRC203552: A land use consent (s13) for the construction of an earth embankment/dam spanning

across the upper Cashmere Valley including the installation of a bypass culvert and associated

realignment of Cashmere Valley Drain; and

• CRC203553: A water permit (s14) for the damming or impounding of flood water within and outside

the bed of a river associated with the operation of the Cashmere Valley Dam; and to divert water

associated with a permanent re-alignment of the Cashmere Drain via a bypass culvert through the

proposed Dam.

A 35 year consent duration is sought for CRC203552 and CRC203553, and a duration of 5 years for CRC203551.
