Call for cameras after

pupils hit by car

• By Bea Gooding

A CALL HAS been made to install

cameras at a busy intersection after

a car failed to give way and struck

school pupils.

Sue Bennetts was driving past

the Clyde Rd and Memorial Ave

intersection when she saw a Cobham

Intermediate School pupil lying

on the ground,

and another in the

back of an ambulance.

The incident

came as no

surprise to her

having lived in the

Eddie

Norgate

area for 15 years

and experienced

near-misses at the

pedestrian crossing closest to BP

on a “weekly basis.”

Principal Eddie Norgate confirmed

the pupils were hit by a

vehicle but said it occurred near

the crossing, not while they were

on it, and that it was a “genuine

accident.”

Senior Sergeant Michael Jones

said a young person sustained

minor injuries and inquiries into

the crash were ongoing.

DANGEROUS: The city council will review the layout at the Clyde Rd and Memorial Ave intersection in an effort to make

it safer for pedestrians.

New site for church destroyed by arson

• By Bea Gooding

PARISHIONERS OF a church that

was deliberately burned down nearly

five years ago will soon have a new

place to call home.

St Margaret’s Presbyterian Church,

Bishopdale, was the subject of arson

in 2016 causing damage beyond

repair. Since then, the church has

worked hard to develop plans for a

replacement facility.

There were plans to have the Farrington

Ave rebuild completed by

mid-2018, but lengthy insurance processes

meant the project took longer

to get off the ground.

Church minister Reverend Andrew

Nicol said building consents

were now in the hands of the city

council and was close to determining

who will receive the building

contract.

This process could take several

weeks but if all goes to plan, the

rebuild will start in the middle of the

year.

“We’re pretty excited around here,

it’s been a while since the fire in 2016.

We are pretty close to appointing a

building contractor and we’re hoping

to break ground halfway through

this year,” said Nicol.

“A building is a really useful tool

and that can be a good thing, but

the church is the people, it’s not the

building.”

The church was founded in 1964

when the suburb of Bishopdale had

been developed.

In 2016, Cheyenne Destiny Reed,

35, was sentenced to six years’ prison

after he was convicted of setting fire

to a bag inside the church which

gutted the building, causing nearly

$2.3m in damages.

Believing that God killed his

friends in the February 22, 2011

earthquake, he set the church on fire

in anger – an attempt to get back at

him.

Nicol was looking forward to having

a bright, warm space to continue

operations from and welcoming back

community groups which previously

used the church for their activities.

Since the blaze, the church still operated

from the same site, but from

“The Hub” – their community building

which escaped a similar fate.

“The old church – as much of a

blessing as it was – was a bit dark,”

said Nicol.

“[The new church] will be a bit different,

it will be a light, open multiuse

space with a generous foyer,

kitchen and a small meeting room.

Our intention is to have a really hospitable

and warm feel to it.”

The project was made possible by

a combination of insurance money,

grants and donations from the

wider Presbyterian community and

fundraisers.

‘It makes me nervous for these kids’

• From page 1

Said Bennetts: “I moved a

month ago and now drive past

the spot. I used these lights

every day for 15 years, and

every day vehicles turning left

from Clyde into Memorial

would run red lights and drive

straight through the crossing

without stopping or looking.

“I have written to the

council and rung police with

number plates of offenders

but nothing has been done.

There needs to be signage and

a red-light camera installed

immediately.”

On one occasion she followed

a vehicle that nearly hit

her to a nearby supermarket to

take down its details for police.

Police told her they sent a

letter to educate the driver and

she decided not to take the

matter further.

The incident she described

at the intersection was not the

first.

A few years ago the city

council installed “speed

bumps” when another child

was also hit by a car.

“It doesn’t seem to have

deterred anyone. It makes me

nervous for these kids, we’ve

seen the aftermath of an accident

[before].”

City council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas said there have been

two minor injury crashes

at the crossing in the last 10

years, both involving pedestrians.

The intersection as a whole

over the past 15 years saw a total

of 34 crashes – 14 of those

resulting in minor injuries, but

the majority involved rightturning

vehicles into Clyde

Rd.

Jones said police data

showed the intersection in

question to be of lower risk

than many others around the

city.

Said Thomas: “Concerns

have been raised regarding

queueing to turn right into

Clyde Rd from both approaches,

particularly during school

pick up and drop off times.”

In 2016 the city council upgraded

the crossings at all four

left-turn slip lanes, including

raised tables and improved

road markings to reduce vehicle

speeds.

But installing red-light cameras

as requested by Bennetts

would not provide any benefit,

Thomas said.

“The crossing in question

is currently a zebra crossing

and is not controlled by traffic

lights, hence a red light camera

may not provide any benefit to

this specific concern.”

However, city council staff

will review the existing layout

and if needed, will look at

updating and improving

signage to warn approaching

drivers.

Said Thomas: “We are

currently working with police

for the introduction of redlight

enforcement cameras in

Christchurch, as we recognise

and support red-light cameras

as viable crash-reduction

tools.”

Planning

for Change

Business

planning takes on

new importance

in a time of

uncertainty.

It’s the life all of us have come to know and

the reality is that it’s likely to be with us all for

a long time yet, and what I’m referring to are

the effects of a lengthy pandemic on our own

individual journeys and psyche.

It requires resilience and fortitude to manage

yourself, your life, your family and your business

during all of this, so it’s important to spend

time working on these capabilities. Personally,

I do this best with a plan in my sights and a

team by my side, which takes me to our annual

business planning session.

With the benefit of guidance from

extraordinary mentors Gilbert Enoka and Paul

Wright, our leadership team and I have been

able to think deeply about what’s needed in

our business over the next twelve months (24

months is too far!) – and also what constantly

distinguishes great teams.

You could easily think that there’s nothing new

to consider or develop when you’ve worked

on this for over two decades, but the opposite

is true and good mentors will push you to

enter that space, reminding us that “it’s about

movement, not judgement.”

So, to what I’ve learnt.

This year’s session involved a study I knew of

but hadn’t considered in depth, and strangely

enough it was the second presentation in a

week that referred to this same organisation:

the US Navy SEALs. Although I don’t personally

relate to the tasks this elite group undertake,

I’m now more aware of the incredible trust

required for them to function, making them

one of the highest performing organisations

in the world.

The literature pointed out that this group

requires great character and commitment to

service, technical expertise, physical ability and

the capacity to cope with enormous stress.

All of these attributes are found in successful

teams and businesses, and I’m reminded

of how essential these strengths are when

I think about the times we are working

in. So much evolution, from the 2020

lockdown, corresponding fears and market

consequences, to the never-predicted-byanyone

pre-Christmas property grab where

spectacular auctions and strong results for

owners fuelled an incredible platform for

prices never seen before, to another period in

Level Two right now (as this article is written).

It’s hard to know where the market’s going to

go as we navigate the year, but all of us have

supported by volunteer tutors

who are fine arts graduates or

qualified teachers,” Greenslade

said.

“Often the group members

have had a desire to paint in

the past and are now able to

put the difficulties of their

illness aside for a while and

express themselves via their

art,” Greenslade said.

Art group member Ray

Haward received his cancer

diagnosis over a year ago and

has been attending art classes

since soon after that.

“I have always been

interested in art,” Haward

said.

“I have recently drifted into

abstract work and I like the

freedom it gives me.

“The Cancer Society is the

go-to place if you need any

advice, and the people are very

helpful here,” Haward said.

About 40 artworks by 20

artists, including Haward, will

be on display at the exhibition,

with the artwork covering a

range of different styles.

The exhibition opening

Santa’s right-hand man keeps kids happy

• By Bea Gooding

IT’S WIDELY known that Santa

creates his Christmas magic in

the North Pole, but Malcolm

Westgarth and his elves will have

you believe otherwise.

Making nearly 1000 wooden

toys by hand each year, volunteers

at The Santa Claus Workshop

Charitable Trust donate

them to children across the city

who otherwise would not receive

a gift from Santa.

Malcolm, 83, of Northwood,

manages the workshop at Shirley

Intermediate School’s technology

block, ensuring the toys are

in tip-top shape for their new

homes in time for the festive

season.

He said many of Santa’s helpers

were in their 60s to 80s. Like

the others, a sense of joy washes

over him when he hears of the

impact the gesture had on childrens’

lives.

The toys were distributed

to families by organisations

such as the Delta Foundation,

the Mayor’s Welfare Fund, the

Shirley Community Trust and

other charities.

“A little boy a few years ago

was given a little wooden tractor;

he was told he could take

it home and that it was his. He

just burst into tears, he couldn’t

understand it. He had never been

given anything like that before,”

he said.

“That gets at our guys, they

like to hear what happens and

the stories where things are done

to help these kids.”

Nearly 16 years ago Malcolm

had some spare paint lying

around in his garage.

He was adamant it would not

go to waste. It was Resene paint,

after all.

His wife instructed him to

take it to the Shirley Community

Centre who knew of others who

needed it and eventually connected

with Santa’s workshop.

The workshop has been providing

Christmas joy to children

since 1978 when two Richmond

carpenters decided to do something

new with their Sunday

mornings.

JOY: Santa Claus Charitable

Trust manager Malcolm

Westgarth and his helpers

make nearly 1000 wooden

toys by hand each year for

needy children.

They put a call out in “the

local rag” for donations of

broken wooden toys, which they

repaired and donated to needy

families in the area.

They operated out of the community

centre until the February

22, 2011, earthquake damaged

the building. With support from

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board, they relocated to the

school a year later.

“I donated some paint I had in

my garage to the workshop and

was asked within 10 days when I

was going to come by and put it

on the toys.”

The responsibility of painting

the toys has mostly been his ever

since, but Malcolm is not alone.

Twice a week for about eight

hours he is joined by 15 volunteers

who help cut timber and

construct the toys either at the

school or within the comfort of

their home workshops.

Made of full timber with the

absence of medium-density fibreboard,

the toys were designed

to last and range from dinosaurs,

animals and cars to puzzles,

games and building blocks.

It costs a minimum of $8000

to run the workshop, but large

donations of timber, operating at

the school rent-free, and financial

support from The Lions Club

of Christchurch helped the trust

stay afloat.

Back then they made about 250

toys a year and has since grown

to their personal best of 1300 in

2019. Last year they created 980

in spite of Covid-19 disruptions.

Because the toys aren’t made of

plastic like most were nowadays,

the wooden toys were “better for

the kids.”

“They’re making a comeback.

These are very popular because

people know they’re going to last.”

Malcolm encourages volunteers

to make about 20 to 30

units of their favourite toys, attempting

to introduce a new toy

every year.

He had difficulty determining

which one was his favourite to

make, but things such as sewing

machines and toasters were what

“dumbfounded” him the most.

More popular items included

wooden chairs and cots designed

for dolls, which are also supplied

by the trust, including the bedding

and the dolls.

The hardest part of it all was

not being able to fulfil each

child’s request and having the

time to do everything.

Said Malcolm: “We used to

have a telephone permanently

hooked up. We would get phone

calls from children asking for

this and that. A lot of these

things were not on our radar and

we didn’t even consider making

them.

“We try to give kids what they

want, but it doesn’t work that

way.”

Malcolm may be working out

of the same rooms where he

learnt the art of woodworking

himself as a former pupil of

Shirley Intermediate, but it was

not his only passion.

He grew up in the area with

his parents and twin sisters

and attended Shirley Primary

School.

He did not tinker in the workshop

at home. Instead, he was an

avid stamp collector and used to

be the librarian for the Christchurch

Philatelic Society for nearly

14 years.

Malcolm retired from his only

job of 40 years as the sales manager

for the Union Steam Ship

Company, organising ferries to

Wellington and cargo ships to

America, India, Pakistan and

North America.

He joined the trust because he

wanted something to do with his

time.

The trust is currently in the

process of finding a new rent-free

facility – about 300 sq m in size

with enough storage space for a

container.

More volunteers were always

welcome, said Malcolm.

“The school have been very

generous letting us have these

rooms rent-free as they had

more class room than needed,

but that’s not on the Ministry of

Education’s agenda [anymore],”

he said.

“We’re all getting a bit older

and we need more help. We need

younger people to get involved

too.”

Pupils from Casebrook Intermediate School hit Sumner beach last week to learn about water safety and how to surf. Pupils

rotated between surfing and boogie boarding with instructors from Learn 2 Surf, and hanging out on the beach with their

teacher/parent helpers. The surfing trip was one of two outdoor adventure education activities organised for year 7 classes at

the beginning of each year, the other being a full day trek. Teacher Samantha Kirk said the school runs the adventure days

early in the year to assist in building a strong learning community. She said many unique opportunities can be promoted

through these activities including class relationships and personal development.

Top Tips For Downsizing

Your children have left home and they’re

now hell-bent on living their own exciting

lives. The once noisy family house where

you’ve lived for 20 odd years shrieks with

memories of kids playing and arguing –

while simultaneously featuring echoingly

empty rooms and extraordinary silence.

Yes, it’s the time of your life you never

thought would come: downsizing to a

smaller place, and possibly a smaller town.

But this move doesn’t necessarily have to

be scary and sad.

Firstly…three important points to consider

when downsizing, especially if it’s to a

new area, are nice weather and proximity

to a hospital and family. At the very least,

ensure you’re close to a large town with an

airport so that family can visit or stay with

you if you need assistance at any time.

Ideally, visit the town or holiday there

before moving and while doing this, check

local real estate prices.

Does this new place tick all your boxes

when it comes to your preferred lifestyle,

budget and health? Are you a sociable

person who loves to get involved with the

community? If so, an isolated town won’t

suit. Either way, it can take time to settle

into another place and especially so if your

health crumbles and you can no longer

drive. Ask your children for ideas and

advice too.

Next...find a real estate agent. It may have

been 20 years since you’ve sold or bought

a house and plenty can change in the

property market in that time! Plus, after

all this time, you’ve got a strong emotional

connection to your home.

But try to put aside this

connection when listing the

property. It may be worth

millions in memories to you

but buyers won’t see it that

way! Then there’s your hunt for a real

estate agent – for both selling your family

house and buying a downsizer. Aim to

interview up to three agents or even

better, ask for suggestions from friends

and family. Well known companies can be

the way to go but aim to target a specific

agent rather than an agency as a whole.

Pick a person who goes out of their way to

go the extra mile for you.

Packing up...your next home will have

much less space, which is great as you’ll

save money on maintenance. But as

you start the massive task of packing

up decades of bits and pieces, be aware

some hard choices will need to be made

about what to keep and discard. Firstly,

tell your kids that any items they still have

at the family home need to be picked up

ASAP. Then start thinking less is more

and better! The more you throw away

now, the less cash you’ll need to spend on

removalists.

On this note, packing up yourself instead

of having removalists do this will ensure

you’re only taking articles that are 100%

necessary. Tell your kids about any objects

you’re planning to throw away as they

may want them. But for anything neither

they or you want to keep, take a trip to

an op shop and give away the objects or

Residential Tenancies Amendments Act 2020

When do the new rues apply?

With the new Residential Tenancies

Amendments Act 2020 now well under

way I thought that over the next few issues

I would break the main changes down for

you to give you some understanding of how

they impact tenancies.

As I have said many times, ensuring you are

up to date with the changes is one thing,

ensuring you understand them is even

more important and even those of us who

have been in the industry for a very long

time are having to clarify several points

with the Ministry of Business, Innovation

and Employment.

So, let’s start with what tenancies the

new legislation affects as there is a lot of

confusion out there. The rule of thumb is –

If the tenancy is a Fixed Term which began

prior to 11 February 2021 then the old

rules apply. If the tenancy began on or after

11 February 2021 then the amendments

are in force.

However, if the tenancy is a Periodic

Tenancy they automatically revert to

the new rules. We were not sure if an

existing tenancy which is extended after

11 February 2021 would revert to the new

rules, or stay on the same rules, however

it has just been clarified that any renewal

or extension, even if there are no other

variations (like a rent increase), will still be

classed as a variation to the initial tenancy

and therefore will revert to the new rules.

Essentially this will mean that most

tenancies will revert to the new legislation

over the next 12 months.

Of course, the importance of understanding

alternatively, organise a garage sale and

sell them there.

At your new house...It’s not unusual for

people to sell their current home while

not having bought another one. In this

case, you might want to rent for a short

period while you search for your dream

downsizer. It can mean paying extra money

in rent but it also gives you a chance to

explore the region and find exactly the

right place to suit you. Depending on the

size of the rental, you may also be able to

cram your family furniture and other bits

and pieces into a spare room while you’re

house hunting, which will save cash on

storage space. Above all else, enjoy your

different lifestyle as a downsizer – and if

you’ve moved to the beach or bush, don’t

be surprised at your newfound popularity

with your children, especially during the

holidays!

when the new rules apply to existing

tenancies is so that you are aware of the

required notice periods you can give

tenants to end a tenancy and whether you

need to adhere to the new, or old rules.

Confused?

If you find this all a little hard to get your

head around, as always, please feel free to

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Customers pleased with honest,

reliable vehicle servicing

Having your vehicle regularly serviced is

key to getting the best out of it in terms of

fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear

on expensive parts.

Kevin, who owns and operates Parker

Automotive in Birmingham Drive,

provides full vehicle servicing to keep your

vehicle running smoothly, as well as WOFs,

batteries and tyres.

He also carries out all mechanical repairs,

including cam belt replacement, suspension

work, clutch and gearbox repairs, only

repairing what’s necessary, and without

charging the earth.

He has owned the business since 2007,

and over that time has established a loyal

customer base – people that rely on him

to give them sound advice and provide

professional care and servicing for their

vehicles.

Customers come from across the city,

Spreydon, Hillmorton, Riccarton, Halswell

and Middleton areas, and the business has

received many positive Google reviews

from customers. Below are some examples:

I have been going to Parker Automotive

for the last eight years and I cannot fault the

I know it’s not always about price but

sometimes, when it comes to vehicle repairs,

you just want a perceived good deal and work

carried out by someone who seems to care.

Kevin came recommended by a friend, and

what a great recommendation. His work was

clean, efficient, fast and came in under what

I thought it was going to cost. So we took my

partner’s car there two days later and that

too was completed faster than we expected

and at an almost unbelievable cost.
