Call for cameras after<br />

pupils hit by car<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

A CALL HAS been made to install<br />

cameras at a busy intersection after<br />

a car failed to give way and struck<br />

school pupils.<br />

Sue Bennetts was driving past<br />

the Clyde Rd and Memorial Ave<br />

intersection when she saw a Cobham<br />

Intermediate School pupil lying<br />

on the ground,<br />

and another in the<br />

back of an ambulance.<br />

The incident<br />

came as no<br />

surprise to her<br />

having lived in the<br />

Eddie<br />

Norgate<br />

area for 15 years<br />

and experienced<br />

near-misses at the<br />

pedestrian crossing closest to BP<br />

on a “weekly basis.”<br />

Principal Eddie Norgate confirmed<br />

the pupils were hit by a<br />

vehicle but said it occurred near<br />

the crossing, not while they were<br />

on it, and that it was a “genuine<br />

accident.”<br />

Senior Sergeant Michael Jones<br />

said a young person sustained<br />

minor injuries and inquiries into<br />

the crash were ongoing.<br />

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

it safer for pedestrians.<br />

New site for church destroyed by arson<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

PARISHIONERS OF a church that<br />

was deliberately burned down nearly<br />

five years ago will soon have a new<br />

place to call home.<br />

St Margaret’s Presbyterian Church,<br />

Bishopdale, was the subject of arson<br />

in 2016 causing damage beyond<br />

repair. Since then, the church has<br />

worked hard to develop plans for a<br />

replacement facility.<br />

There were plans to have the Farrington<br />

Ave rebuild completed by<br />

mid-2018, but lengthy insurance processes<br />

meant the project took longer<br />

to get off the ground.<br />

Church minister Reverend Andrew<br />

Nicol said building consents<br />

were now in the hands of the city<br />

council and was close to determining<br />

who will receive the building<br />

contract.<br />

This process could take several<br />

weeks but if all goes to plan, the<br />

rebuild will start in the middle of the<br />

year.<br />

“We’re pretty excited around here,<br />

it’s been a while since the fire in 2016.<br />

We are pretty close to appointing a<br />

building contractor and we’re hoping<br />

to break ground halfway through<br />

this year,” said Nicol.<br />

“A building is a really useful tool<br />

and that can be a good thing, but<br />

the church is the people, it’s not the<br />

building.”<br />

The church was founded in 1964<br />

when the suburb of Bishopdale had<br />

been developed.<br />

In 2016, Cheyenne Destiny Reed,<br />

35, was sentenced to six years’ prison<br />

after he was convicted of setting fire<br />

to a bag inside the church which<br />

gutted the building, causing nearly<br />

$2.3m in damages.<br />

Believing that God killed his<br />

friends in the February 22, 20<strong>11</strong><br />

earthquake, he set the church on fire<br />

in anger – an attempt to get back at<br />

him.<br />

Nicol was looking forward to having<br />

a bright, warm space to continue<br />

operations from and welcoming back<br />

community groups which previously<br />

used the church for their activities.<br />

Since the blaze, the church still operated<br />

from the same site, but from<br />

“The Hub” – their community building<br />

which escaped a similar fate.<br />

“The old church – as much of a<br />

blessing as it was – was a bit dark,”<br />

said Nicol.<br />

“[The new church] will be a bit different,<br />

it will be a light, open multiuse<br />

space with a generous foyer,<br />

kitchen and a small meeting room.<br />

Our intention is to have a really hospitable<br />

and warm feel to it.”<br />

The project was made possible by<br />

a combination of insurance money,<br />

grants and donations from the<br />

wider Presbyterian community and<br />

fundraisers.<br />

‘It makes me nervous for these kids’<br />

• From page 1<br />

Said Bennetts: “I moved a<br />

month ago and now drive past<br />

the spot. I used these lights<br />

every day for 15 years, and<br />

every day vehicles turning left<br />

from Clyde into Memorial<br />

would run red lights and drive<br />

straight through the crossing<br />

without stopping or looking.<br />

“I have written to the<br />

council and rung police with<br />

number plates of offenders<br />

but nothing has been done.<br />

There needs to be signage and<br />

a red-light camera installed<br />

immediately.”<br />

On one occasion she followed<br />

a vehicle that nearly hit<br />

her to a nearby supermarket to<br />

take down its details for police.<br />

Police told her they sent a<br />

letter to educate the driver and<br />

she decided not to take the<br />

matter further.<br />

The incident she described<br />

at the intersection was not the<br />

first.<br />

A few years ago the city<br />

council installed “speed<br />

bumps” when another child<br />

was also hit by a car.<br />

“It doesn’t seem to have<br />

deterred anyone. It makes me<br />

nervous for these kids, we’ve<br />

seen the aftermath of an accident<br />

[before].”<br />

City council transport<br />

operations manager Steffan<br />

Thomas said there have been<br />

two minor injury crashes<br />

at the crossing in the last 10<br />

years, both involving pedestrians.<br />

The intersection as a whole<br />

over the past 15 years saw a total<br />

of 34 crashes – 14 of those<br />

resulting in minor injuries, but<br />

the majority involved rightturning<br />

vehicles into Clyde<br />

Rd.<br />

Jones said police data<br />

showed the intersection in<br />

question to be of lower risk<br />

than many others around the<br />

city.<br />

Said Thomas: “Concerns<br />

have been raised regarding<br />

queueing to turn right into<br />

Clyde Rd from both approaches,<br />

particularly during school<br />

pick up and drop off times.”<br />

In 2016 the city council upgraded<br />

the crossings at all four<br />

left-turn slip lanes, including<br />

raised tables and improved<br />

road markings to reduce vehicle<br />

speeds.<br />

But installing red-light cameras<br />

as requested by Bennetts<br />

would not provide any benefit,<br />

Thomas said.<br />

“The crossing in question<br />

is currently a zebra crossing<br />

•HAVE<br />

installed at<br />

the Clyde<br />

Rd and<br />

and is not controlled by traffic<br />

lights, hence a red light camera<br />

may not provide any benefit to<br />

this specific concern.”<br />

However, city council staff<br />

will review the existing layout<br />

and if needed, will look at<br />

updating and improving<br />

signage to warn approaching<br />

drivers.<br />

Said Thomas: “We are<br />

currently working with police<br />

for the introduction of redlight<br />

enforcement cameras in<br />

Christchurch, as we recognise<br />

and support red-light cameras<br />

as viable crash-reduction<br />

tools.”<br />

Planning<br />

for Change<br />

Business<br />

planning takes on<br />

new importance<br />

in a time of<br />

uncertainty.<br />

It’s the life all of us have come to know and<br />

the reality is that it’s likely to be with us all for<br />

a long time yet, and what I’m referring to are<br />

the effects of a lengthy pandemic on our own<br />

individual journeys and psyche.<br />

It requires resilience and fortitude to manage<br />

yourself, your life, your family and your business<br />

during all of this, so it’s important to spend<br />

time working on these capabilities. Personally,<br />

I do this best with a plan in my sights and a<br />

team by my side, which takes me to our annual<br />

business planning session.<br />

With the benefit of guidance from<br />

extraordinary mentors Gilbert Enoka and Paul<br />

Wright, our leadership team and I have been<br />

able to think deeply about what’s needed in<br />

our business over the next twelve months (24<br />

months is too far!) – and also what constantly<br />

distinguishes great teams.<br />

You could easily think that there’s nothing new<br />

to consider or develop when you’ve worked<br />

on this for over two decades, but the opposite<br />

is true and good mentors will push you to<br />

enter that space, reminding us that “it’s about<br />

movement, not judgement.”<br />

So, to what I’ve learnt.<br />

This year’s session involved a study I knew of<br />

but hadn’t considered in depth, and strangely<br />

enough it was the second presentation in a<br />

week that referred to this same organisation:<br />

the US Navy SEALs. Although I don’t personally<br />

relate to the tasks this elite group undertake,<br />

I’m now more aware of the incredible trust<br />

required for them to function, making them<br />

one of the highest performing organisations<br />

in the world.<br />

The literature pointed out that this group<br />

requires great character and commitment to<br />

service, technical expertise, physical ability and<br />

the capacity to cope with enormous stress.<br />

All of these attributes are found in successful<br />

teams and businesses, and I’m reminded<br />

Cancer Society to showcase works of art groups<br />

A NEW art exhibition<br />

showcasing the work of the<br />

Cancer Society’s art groups<br />

will open in Linwood on<br />

<strong>March</strong> 16.<br />

The “Art Escape” exhibition<br />

at the Eastside Gallery in the<br />

Linwood Community Arts<br />

Centre will offer the public<br />

the opportunity to view and<br />

purchase artwork created<br />

by members of two Cancer<br />

Society art groups.<br />

Course tutor Karen<br />

Greenslade said that the art<br />

groups provide a welcome<br />

respite for those whose lives<br />

have been adversely affected<br />

by cancer.<br />

“The group members are<br />

supported by volunteer tutors<br />

who are fine arts graduates or<br />

qualified teachers,” Greenslade<br />

said.<br />

“Often the group members<br />

have had a desire to paint in<br />

the past and are now able to<br />

put the difficulties of their<br />

illness aside for a while and<br />

express themselves via their<br />

art,” Greenslade said.<br />

Art group member Ray<br />

Haward received his cancer<br />

diagnosis over a year ago and<br />

has been attending art classes<br />

since soon after that.<br />

“I have always been<br />

interested in art,” Haward<br />

said.<br />

“I have recently drifted into<br />

abstract work and I like the<br />

freedom it gives me.<br />

“The Cancer Society is the<br />

go-to place if you need any<br />

advice, and the people are very<br />

helpful here,” Haward said.<br />

About 40 artworks by 20<br />

artists, including Haward, will<br />

be on display at the exhibition,<br />

with the artwork covering a<br />

range of different styles.<br />

Santa’s right-hand man keeps kids happy<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

IT’S WIDELY known that Santa<br />

creates his Christmas magic in<br />

the North Pole, but Malcolm<br />

Westgarth and his elves will have<br />

you believe otherwise.<br />

Making nearly 1000 wooden<br />

toys by hand each year, volunteers<br />

at The Santa Claus Workshop<br />

Charitable Trust donate<br />

them to children across the city<br />

who otherwise would not receive<br />

a gift from Santa.<br />

Malcolm, 83, of Northwood,<br />

manages the workshop at Shirley<br />

Intermediate School’s technology<br />

block, ensuring the toys are<br />

in tip-top shape for their new<br />

homes in time for the festive<br />

season.<br />

He said many of Santa’s helpers<br />

were in their 60s to 80s. Like<br />

the others, a sense of joy washes<br />

over him when he hears of the<br />

impact the gesture had on childrens’<br />

lives.<br />

The toys were distributed<br />

to families by organisations<br />

such as the Delta Foundation,<br />

the Mayor’s Welfare Fund, the<br />

Shirley Community Trust and<br />

other charities.<br />

“A little boy a few years ago<br />

was given a little wooden tractor;<br />

he was told he could take<br />

it home and that it was his. He<br />

just burst into tears, he couldn’t<br />

understand it. He had never been<br />

given anything like that before,”<br />

he said.<br />

“That gets at our guys, they<br />

like to hear what happens and<br />

the stories where things are done<br />

to help these kids.”<br />

Nearly 16 years ago Malcolm<br />

had some spare paint lying<br />

around in his garage.<br />

He was adamant it would not<br />

go to waste. It was Resene paint,<br />

after all.<br />

His wife instructed him to<br />

take it to the Shirley Community<br />

Centre who knew of others who<br />

needed it and eventually connected<br />

with Santa’s workshop.<br />

The workshop has been providing<br />

Christmas joy to children<br />

since 1978 when two Richmond<br />

carpenters decided to do something<br />

new with their Sunday<br />

mornings.<br />

JOY: Santa Claus Charitable<br />

Trust manager Malcolm<br />

Westgarth and his helpers<br />

make nearly 1000 wooden<br />

toys by hand each year for<br />

needy children.<br />

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

They put a call out in “the<br />

local rag” for donations of<br />

broken wooden toys, which they<br />

repaired and donated to needy<br />

families in the area.<br />

They operated out of the community<br />

centre until the February<br />

22, 20<strong>11</strong>, earthquake damaged<br />

the building. With support from<br />

the Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board, they relocated to the<br />

school a year later.<br />

“I donated some paint I had in<br />

my garage to the workshop and<br />

was asked within 10 days when I<br />

was going to come by and put it<br />

on the toys.”<br />

The responsibility of painting<br />

the toys has mostly been his ever<br />

since, but Malcolm is not alone.<br />

Twice a week for about eight<br />

hours he is joined by 15 volunteers<br />

who help cut timber and<br />

construct the toys either at the<br />

school or within the comfort of<br />

their home workshops.<br />

Made of full timber with the<br />

absence of medium-density fibreboard,<br />

the toys were designed<br />

to last and range from dinosaurs,<br />

animals and cars to puzzles,<br />

games and building blocks.<br />

It costs a minimum of $8000<br />

to run the workshop, but large<br />

donations of timber, operating at<br />

the school rent-free, and financial<br />

support from The Lions Club<br />

of Christchurch helped the trust<br />

stay afloat.<br />

Back then they made about 250<br />

toys a year and has since grown<br />

to their personal best of 1300 in<br />

2019. Last year they created 980<br />

in spite of Covid-19 disruptions.<br />

Because the toys aren’t made of<br />

plastic like most were nowadays,<br />

the wooden toys were “better for<br />

the kids.”<br />

“They’re making a comeback.<br />

These are very popular because<br />

people know they’re going to last.”<br />

Malcolm encourages volunteers<br />

to make about 20 to 30<br />

units of their favourite toys, attempting<br />

to introduce a new toy<br />

every year.<br />

He had difficulty determining<br />

which one was his favourite to<br />

make, but things such as sewing<br />

machines and toasters were what<br />

“dumbfounded” him the most.<br />

More popular items included<br />

wooden chairs and cots designed<br />

for dolls, which are also supplied<br />

by the trust, including the bedding<br />

and the dolls.<br />

The hardest part of it all was<br />

not being able to fulfil each<br />

child’s request and having the<br />

time to do everything.<br />

Said Malcolm: “We used to<br />

have a telephone permanently<br />

hooked up. We would get phone<br />

calls from children asking for<br />

this and that. A lot of these<br />

things were not on our radar and<br />

we didn’t even consider making<br />

them.<br />

“We try to give kids what they<br />

want, but it doesn’t work that<br />

way.”<br />

Malcolm may be working out<br />

of the same rooms where he<br />

learnt the art of woodworking<br />

himself as a former pupil of<br />

Shirley Intermediate, but it was<br />

not his only passion.<br />

He grew up in the area with<br />

his parents and twin sisters<br />

and attended Shirley Primary<br />

School.<br />

He did not tinker in the workshop<br />

at home. Instead, he was an<br />

avid stamp collector and used to<br />

be the librarian for the Christchurch<br />

Philatelic Society for nearly<br />

14 years.<br />

Malcolm retired from his only<br />

job of 40 years as the sales manager<br />

for the Union Steam Ship<br />

Company, organising ferries to<br />

Wellington and cargo ships to<br />

America, India, Pakistan and<br />

North America.<br />

He joined the trust because he<br />

wanted something to do with his<br />

time.<br />

The trust is currently in the<br />

process of finding a new rent-free<br />

facility – about 300 sq m in size<br />

with enough storage space for a<br />

container.<br />

More volunteers were always<br />

welcome, said Malcolm.<br />

“The school have been very<br />

generous letting us have these<br />

rooms rent-free as they had<br />

more class room than needed,<br />

but that’s not on the Ministry of<br />

Education’s agenda [anymore],”<br />

he said.<br />

“We’re all getting a bit older<br />

and we need more help. We need<br />

younger people to get involved<br />

too.”<br />

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

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

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

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

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

through these activities including class relationships and personal development.<br />

lives. The once noisy family house where<br />

you’ve lived for 20 odd years shrieks with<br />

memories of kids playing and arguing –<br />

while simultaneously featuring echoingly<br />

empty rooms and extraordinary silence.<br />

Yes, it’s the time of your life you never<br />

thought would come: downsizing to a<br />

smaller place, and possibly a smaller town.<br />

But this move doesn’t necessarily have to<br />

be scary and sad.<br />

Firstly…three important points to consider<br />

when downsizing, especially if it’s to a<br />

new area, are nice weather and proximity<br />

to a hospital and family. At the very least,<br />

ensure you’re close to a large town with an<br />

airport so that family can visit or stay with<br />

you if you need assistance at any time.<br />

Ideally, visit the town or holiday there<br />

before moving and while doing this, check<br />

local real estate prices.<br />

Does this new place tick all your boxes<br />

when it comes to your preferred lifestyle,<br />

budget and health? Are you a sociable<br />

person who loves to get involved with the<br />

community? If so, an isolated town won’t<br />

suit. Either way, it can take time to settle<br />

into another place and especially so if your<br />

health crumbles and you can no longer<br />

drive. Ask your children for ideas and<br />

advice too.<br />

Next...find a real estate agent. It may have<br />

been 20 years since you’ve sold or bought<br />

a house and plenty can change in the<br />

property market in that time! Plus, after<br />

all this time, you’ve got a strong emotional<br />

connection to your home.<br />

But try to put aside this<br />

connection when listing the<br />

property. It may be worth<br />

millions in memories to you<br />

but buyers won’t see it that<br />

way! Then there’s your hunt for a real<br />

estate agent – for both selling your family<br />

house and buying a downsizer. Aim to<br />

interview up to three agents or even<br />

better, ask for suggestions from friends<br />

and family. Well known companies can be<br />

the way to go but aim to target a specific<br />

agent rather than an agency as a whole.<br />

Pick a person who goes out of their way to<br />

go the extra mile for you.<br />

Packing up...your next home will have<br />

much less space, which is great as you’ll<br />

save money on maintenance. But as<br />

you start the massive task of packing<br />

up decades of bits and pieces, be aware<br />

some hard choices will need to be made<br />

about what to keep and discard. Firstly,<br />

tell your kids that any items they still have<br />

at the family home need to be picked up<br />

ASAP. Then start thinking less is more<br />

and better! The more you throw away<br />

now, the less cash you’ll need to spend on<br />

removalists.<br />

On this note, packing up yourself instead<br />

of having removalists do this will ensure<br />

you’re only taking articles that are 100%<br />

necessary. Tell your kids about any objects<br />

you’re planning to throw away as they<br />

may want them. But for anything neither<br />

they or you want to keep, take a trip to<br />

an op shop and give away the objects or<br />

Residential Tenancies Amendments Act 2020<br />

When do the new rues apply?<br />

With the new Residential Tenancies<br />

Amendments Act 2020 now well under<br />

way I thought that over the next few issues<br />

I would break the main changes down for<br />

you to give you some understanding of how<br />

they impact tenancies.<br />

As I have said many times, ensuring you are<br />

up to date with the changes is one thing,<br />

ensuring you understand them is even<br />

more important and even those of us who<br />

have been in the industry for a very long<br />

time are having to clarify several points<br />

with the Ministry of Business, Innovation<br />

and Employment.<br />

So, let’s start with what tenancies the<br />

new legislation affects as there is a lot of<br />

confusion out there. The rule of thumb is –<br />

If the tenancy is a Fixed Term which began<br />

prior to <strong>11</strong> February <strong>2021</strong> then the old<br />

rules apply. If the tenancy began on or after<br />

<strong>11</strong> February <strong>2021</strong> then the amendments<br />

are in force.<br />

However, if the tenancy is a Periodic<br />

Tenancy they automatically revert to<br />

the new rules. We were not sure if an<br />

existing tenancy which is extended after<br />

<strong>11</strong> February <strong>2021</strong> would revert to the new<br />

rules, or stay on the same rules, however<br />

it has just been clarified that any renewal<br />

or extension, even if there are no other<br />

variations (like a rent increase), will still be<br />

classed as a variation to the initial tenancy<br />

and therefore will revert to the new rules.<br />

Essentially this will mean that most<br />

tenancies will revert to the new legislation<br />

over the next 12 months.<br />

Of course, the importance of understanding<br />

alternatively, organise a garage sale and<br />

sell them there.<br />

At your new house...It’s not unusual for<br />

people to sell their current home while<br />

not having bought another one. In this<br />

case, you might want to rent for a short<br />

period while you search for your dream<br />

downsizer. It can mean paying extra money<br />

in rent but it also gives you a chance to<br />

explore the region and find exactly the<br />

right place to suit you. Depending on the<br />

size of the rental, you may also be able to<br />

cram your family furniture and other bits<br />

and pieces into a spare room while you’re<br />

house hunting, which will save cash on<br />

storage space. Above all else, enjoy your<br />

different lifestyle as a downsizer – and if<br />

you’ve moved to the beach or bush, don’t<br />

be surprised at your newfound popularity<br />

with your children, especially during the<br />

holidays!<br />

when the new rules apply to existing<br />

tenancies is so that you are aware of the<br />

required notice periods you can give<br />

tenants to end a tenancy and whether you<br />

need to adhere to the new, or old rules.<br />

Confused?<br />

head around, as always, please feel free to<br />

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS<br />

Customers pleased with honest,<br />

reliable vehicle servicing<br />

Having your vehicle regularly serviced is<br />

key to getting the best out of it in terms of<br />

fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear<br />

on expensive parts.<br />

Kevin, who owns and operates Parker<br />

Automotive in Birmingham Drive,<br />

provides full vehicle servicing to keep your<br />

vehicle running smoothly, as well as WOFs,<br />

batteries and tyres.<br />

He also carries out all mechanical repairs,<br />

including cam belt replacement, suspension<br />

work, clutch and gearbox repairs, only<br />

repairing what’s necessary, and without<br />

charging the earth.<br />

He has owned the business since 2007,<br />

and over that time has established a loyal<br />

customer base – people that rely on him<br />

to give them sound advice and provide<br />

professional care and servicing for their<br />

vehicles.<br />

Customers come from across the city,<br />

Spreydon, Hillmorton, Riccarton, Halswell<br />

and Middleton areas, and the business has<br />

received many positive Google reviews<br />

from customers. Below are some examples:<br />

I have been going to Parker Automotive<br />

for the last eight years and I cannot fault the<br />

service. The mechanical work has been top<br />

notch! If you want top service and value for<br />

money I recommend Parker Automotive. –<br />

honest guy who gets the job done in a very<br />

timely manor and he has outstanding<br />

communication. The overall service I’ve<br />

received is excellent. – Lachlan Poole<br />

I know it’s not always about price but<br />

sometimes, when it comes to vehicle repairs,<br />

you just want a perceived good deal and work<br />

carried out by someone who seems to care.<br />

Kevin came recommended by a friend, and<br />

what a great recommendation. His work was<br />

clean, efficient, fast and came in under what<br />

I thought it was going to cost. So we took my<br />

partner’s car there two days later and that<br />

too was completed faster than we expected<br />

and at an almost unbelievable cost.<br />

Give Parker Automotive a shot next<br />

time you need something done. Kevin<br />

is a nice fella too, win win. – Mark<br />

Earlier this year, Parker Automotive<br />

moved from premises on the Lincoln<br />
