Women’s World Cup trophy on display

OPPORTUNITY: Cashmere High School deputy principal Blair Johnson

demonstrating a perfect catch. (Right) – Head of cricket Paul Weggery with the

Women’s World Cup cricket trophy. ​

CASHMERE HIGH School students had the

opportunity to get up close and personal with the

Women’s World Cup cricket trophy last week.

They were able to capture the moment

through selfies and the school photographer.

Canterbury Cricket also provided fun activities,

such as the dive mat, to allow students and

staff to showcase their cricketing prowess.

Deputy principal Blair Johnson took a

“particularly fine diving catch.”

Said head of cricket Paul Weggery: “The

central principle of cricket is the love of playing

the game. This allows you to be relaxed while

taking the opportunities given to you in order

to attain excellence.

• By Samantha Mythen

REDCLIFFS residents have

concerns an upgrade to the

community’s medical centre will

pose a danger to cyclists and

others who the use

the shared Coastal

Pathway.

The Redcliffs Residents

Association

is now calling on

the city council to

notify the resource

consent needed for

the development on

McIntosh

Main Rd, allowing the public to

provide feedback.

Rebuilding the medical centre

on the new site will mean vehicle

have major concerns for the safety

of those who use the pathway,

Manaia meets cricket heroes at coin toss

CRICKET FAN Manaia Kereopa

said she was “sort of nervous, but

really excited” to meet the players

at the White Ferns v England one

day match at Hagley Oval.

Manaia, 10, took part in

the pre-match coin toss on

February 24 with captains Heather

Knight and Sophie Devine as

part of the ANZ coin toss competition.

Manaia, who attends Te Pā o

Rākaihautū school in Linwood,

won the opportunity to be an

ANZ coin toss kid and experience

standing side by side with the

captains as they decided what

team would bat and bowl.

Manaia said even though it was

nerve-wracking waiting to get on

the field with the captains she “felt

really good after.”

“I was excited once I got out

there in front of the big crowd”,

she said.

“My favourite part was getting

to meet all the players and get

their signatures on my T-shirt.”

Manaia was really happy that she

got to talk to her favourite player

Amy Satterthwaite and watch the

teams warm up for the game. She

likes watching cricket with her

family, and said: “I want to learn

how to play now.”

Said head of sponsorship at

ANZ Sue McGregor: “Manaia

was one of 23 young cricketers

and fans chosen to take part in

the pre-match custom this cricket

season.

“After such a tough year for the

country in 2020, it has been even

more apparent the important role

that sport and our sporting heroes

play to inspire our future generations.

“We are so pleased to be able to

continue creating these once in

a lifetime opportunities for our

future Blackcaps and White

Ferns. Getting to meet their

heroes is something we hope

will stay with them for years to

come.”

The coin toss experience is part

of ANZ’s long-standing support of

Kiwi cricketers.

Since 2009 ANZ has given

over $1 million to cricket players,

teams and clubs. In addition,

ANZ has donated $1 million

in grants to grass roots cricket

and netball clubs to help them

get back up and running after

Covid-19.

10-year celebrations for market

• From page 1

“We saw this in Devon Conway’s

epic 99 against Australia,’’

he said.

“Every time we play, we enjoy

the opportunity,” which was

evident in the school’s recent

championship performance in the

T20 Gillette Cup Qualifier.

Next up for the school is the

girl’s competition with the theme

being “Fun with Cricket.”

The first XI also have their next

Gillette Cup knockout match

against St Bede’s College.

THE OPAWA Farmers’ Market

has celebrated a decade of

supplying residents with fresh

and local produce.

Launched just days after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

the market was a welcome initiative.

Its timely arrival provided

a haven for locals to connect

and purchase fresh, local

produce and other staples

from Canterbury growers and

producers.

Although it appeared to be a

response to the earthquakes, the

market had actually been many

months in the planning.

Because of this, all the growers

and producers had already been

secured, many of whom lost all

of their usual outlets due to the

earthquakes.

Ten years on, and with over

500 events under its belt, market

manager Doug Hesp is proud

that the market continues to

maintain its primary purpose of

providing a local outlet to purchase

fresh produce direct from

their local growers.

“It’s great to see our community

supporting local growers

and producers which not only

strengthens community connections

but also our food security,”

he said.

“We are aware some of our

regular weekly shoppers came

to that first market and have

continued to support their local

businesses throughout this time.

We’d like to pass on our thanks

and appreciation on behalf of

our stallholders to all those who

have supported the market over

the years.”

About 1000 tonnes of local

produce has been supplied

through the market over the past

decade – just one example of the

positive impact the market has

had on the wider community.

The farmers’ market has also

been host to a number of popular

events over the years drawing

in locals and Cantabrians from

afar including the children’s

spud growing competitions,

Bid to ensure safety of pathway users

• From page 1

“It would break the flow of the

path which was intended to be

an unbroken route from town

through to Sumner.”

Said Coastal Pathway Group

chairman Hanno Sander: “As

stewards of the Coastal Pathway,

we want to work with the community

to ensure safety for pathway

users. Currently the vision

for the pathway is a continuous

6.5km connection between communities.

“We are concerned that a busy

access point would split that connection.”

Only one of the shops would

remain if the medical centre was

upgrades in Urumau

Reserve.

Lyttelton Mountain Bike

Club member Joshua Merriam,

asked the Banks Peninsula

Community Board

at its meeting on Monday to

approve the track upgrades

at the reserve’s entrance.

The track is a component of

“The village is quite vulnerable

and we do not want to threaten

the economic viability.”

The residents’ association has

asked the community board to

Progress under way

as there is now funding

available for improvements

on the track.

Said Mt Herbert

subdivision board member

Scott Winter: “Everyone

is in agreement that this

should be approved.”

Merriam said the community

board’s response

was frustrating as it has

been the same response

they have been receiving for

several years.

“I’ll give them the benefit

of the doubt and trust that

movement is actually happening

in the background,”

Merriam said.

The campaign began in

August 2018 after the board

approved the development

plan, including the entrance

track.

However, no progress has

been made since then to

look at the project and to provide

advice on whether it should be

approved.

McIntosh spoke to a planner

who said they were looking into

the safety and traffic aspects of it.

track into the reserve.

Instead the track is still

classified as a “proposed

track,” in spite of being used

by both mountain bikers

and walkers alike to access

the track.

“It’s roadblock terminology,”

said Merriam.

Inaction from discussions

with the Urumau Reserve

Management Committee,

prompted Merriam to take

this campaign to the board.

Approving the track

would allow for increased

engagement with the reserve

and it would complete the

entrance connection from

Foster Tce to the Urumau

traverse track, allowing for

appreciation of the native

planting through which the

area it traverses, Merriam

said.

A PENGUIN statue created in honour

of Snow Richards, the longest-serving

member at the Suburbs Rugby Football

Club, has sold for $9000 at auction.

Snow, 89, has been a member of the

club for 73 years. He was not at the Pop

Up Penguin charity auction last week

but said “it feels pretty good” that his

statue namesake sold for $9000 at the

charity auction.

The penguin statue, known as both

Kotahi Tātou and Snow the penguin,

was part of the popular Pop Up Penguins

art trail held over the summer

in Christchurch. It was one of over 50

penguin statues that was auctioned off

to raise funds for the Cholmondeley

Children’s Centre.

The auction raised a total of

$1,007,300 with 75 per cent of that going

to the Cholmondeley Children’s Centre,

a charity which provides respite care for

young children who have family experiencing

crisis.

It was a surprise to Snow that the penguin

statue sold for the amount it did as

he thought it might have gone for “three

or four thousand, something like that”.

“But it would be ideal if the

we could facilitate this for them.

There would be good access, it

would still be close to the centre

of the village without interfering

with the Coastal Pathway.”

The medical centre is expected

to move from 180 Main Rd and

Triathlon stars set to light

up the Sea2Sky Challenge

The Brad Richards Building Sea2Sky

Challenge 2021 will boast a stellar line up

this year with the majority of New Zealands

olympic triathlon hopefuls heading to

Sumner on 14th March.

The annual Challenge offers an end of

summer test for the serious athlete as well

as those that just want to give it a try. The

sixth edition of the challenge has partnered

with local company Brad Richards Building

as this year’s principal race sponsor.

Director and Redcliffs resident Brad

Richards completed the 17km run last year

“we are so lucky to have such an incredible

run right on our door step. The section from

Godley Head back to the clocktower is

stunning but tough on the legs with all the

ups and downs”.

The 2021 event will see Olympic triathlon

hopefuls jostle for bragging rights, as well

as over $5000 prize purse. Hayden Wilde,

a rising star of world triathlon and potential

olympic medalist has confirmed his entry,

along with former world Under 23 years

champion Tayler Reid, top international Sam

Ward and local professional Saxon Morgan.

The women’s field will include former

Under 23 years World Champion Rebecca

Spence up against Nicole Van der Kaay,

Commonwealth Games relay medallist, as

well as highly regarded Ainsley Thorpe and

Sophie Corbidge.

The event was the brainchild of Sumner

resident and triathlon legend Dr John

Hellemans whose grand children are now

amongst the participants in the kids event,

“in the early days of triathlon it was all a

bit of an adventure, this event brings some

of that adventure back to a sport that has

become quite structured - it’s also great to

see all the kids involved”.

As well as the elite racing there are events

for all ages and abilities with a duathlon

option, 17km run, Junior racing and kids

Aquathon. One of the oldest competitors

and a regular on the Christchurch triathlon

scene, John Gordon, 81 years young will

also be out there competing.

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 Marion

Smart writes about what makes the

estuary such a special place

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

ESTUARY MATTERS

SOUTHERN VIEW

The beauty of the estuary is for everyone

THE AVON-Heathcote

Estuary provides a haven for an

abundance of bird species and

marine life, a venue for both

peaceful and exhilarating waterbased

recreation, and an everchanging

backdrop along which

to jog, walk or cycle.

For an array of ornithologists

and scientists, the estuary with its

identified 149 bird, 26 fish and 92

plant species as well as hundreds

of invertebrates, serves as a

valuable ecosystem for specialist

studies and monitoring surveys

(which have, unfortunately,

showed that Te Ihutai has suffered

a decline in biodiversity over

recent years).

But Te Ihutai is not just a scientist’s

dream environment.

For the everyday birdwatcher,

local resident or visitor to the

area, the estuary radiates a unique

beauty that offers magnificent

experiences – for peaceful reflection

during a sunrise over its

blue tranquility; kids in their first

yacht race on choppy waters;

the opportunity to watch one of

the local shags ingest a flounder

five times the width of its throat;

and birds soaring overhead,

with wings spread, flying ever so

gracefully.

For me, the estuary’s beauty

lies in its constant transformations

– its fast tidal flows in and

out, aqua blue at the ocean’s

mouth, changing colour as it

heads to the rivers, the midestuary

sandbanks sitting high

sustaining a myriad of birds

foraging for food, then disappearing

as the tide comes in; the sun

and the moon, each lighting the

estuary with a varying intensity

as they rise and set, providing a

serene environment for a paddle

boarder and their dog to gently

travel with the tide.

The beauty of our estuary is

there for everyone to enjoy – and

protect.

family’s ducted heat pump.

The AirTouch4 can also connect to

Google Home and Amazon Alexa.

every room is either.

Temperatures can

often fluctuate from one room to the next

because of sunlight, room activity or other

factors.

With AirTouch4’s Individual

Temperature Control Technology (ITC),

the AirTouch monitors temperatures

and smartly adjusts airflow as needed

around your home with the aid of multiple

wireless temperature sensors instead of a

single sensor in one location. When some

rooms get too hot or cold, the AirTouch

will adjust airflow to maintain your desired

temperature, without wasting conditioned

air on rooms already comfortable.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800

SMOOTH or sales@smooth-air.co.nz

for more information on the AirTouch4

zone control.

With the ever changing weather patterns,

heat pumps have the flexibility of being able

to heat and cool which is an advantage no

other appliance can offer. This represents

great value for your investment as you can

use it all year round. The team at Enviro

Master Ltd can help keep you cool this

Summer either at home or work. Enviro

Master supplies, installs and services all the

leading brands including Panasonic, Fujitsu,

Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means our team

can show you which system and brand will

best suit your needs.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals, now

is a great time to beat the 1st of July deadline.

Inadequate heating and ventilation can lead

to mould growth and dampness in your

property, leading to costlier maintenance

and an unhealthy living environment.

Providing a fixed heater with a higher heat

output and lower running costs, like a heat

pump, will enable your tenants to heat the

area effectively. Enviro Master are well

experienced with the Tenancy Services

software to ensure that you are meeting your

requirements.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for any

repair or damage caused to the system due

to poor installation. Enviro Master’s ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration so

customers have an understanding on how it

will best meet their needs.

For a free in home consultation, call

Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our

showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd,

Waltham, Christchurch.
