to address

problems at

intersection

• By Bea Gooding

REFUGE ISLANDS and

pedestrian surveys have

been suggested to improve

a problematic Cashmere

intersection following a

campaign to address it.

Concerned parents and

schools have called for better

pedestrian facilities on

Cashmere Rd and surrounding

streets due to cars failing to

indicate and high traffic

volumes putting children in

danger.

The issue has predominantly

involved the Barrington St and

Cashmere Rd roundabout, where

residents have been fearing for

their safety while trying to cross

the road.

Last year, the issue was

brought forward to the

Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board, who

requested advice on measures to

improve the area.

Following an investigation,

city council staff have considered

the area a “high priority” for

the installation of safe crossing

facilities.

‘Regular reports of near misses’

Christine

Harris

• From page 1

“We would consider this area a

high priority for the installation

of dedicated pedestrian crossing

facilities, particularly given the

high traffic volumes and that few

nearby facilities exist,” the report

read.

“Given the complexities of

crossing the road at a roundabout,

we would recommend

re-considering the previously

proposed pedestrian refuge island

outside 31 Cashmere Rd.

“As a next step, a pedestrian

survey could be undertaken and

other community surveying

options could be explored to estimate

the level

of suppressed

pedestrian

demand in

this area.”

Since the

issue was

brought forward,

a number

of groups

wrote to the

community

board with concerns, including

disability service Hohepa Canterbury,

Cashmere High School

and the Barrington Cashmere

Safe Streets group.

Said Thorrington School

principal Christine Harris:

“Locating pedestrian crossing

points so close to the heart

of the roundabout is a major

safety (collision) issue. There are

regular reports of near-misses

at this roundabout and many

parents chose to drive their

children to school to ensure their

safety.

“While this sounds like a

solution, it does not foster independence

in children who should

be able to walk to their local

school.”

Cashmere Rd is a minor arterial

road with high traffic volumes

consisting of about 16,000

vehicles on weekdays. Morning

peak hour traffic is more than

1200 cars per hour in both directions.

DANGER: The

Cashmere

Rd and

Barrington St

roundabout

and

surrounding

streets

have been

identified

as a priority

to install

pedestrian

safety

measures.

As it was an arterial route to

and from Lyttelton Port, heavy

vehicles make up a “surprisingly”

high volume of 10 per cent of

vehicles travelling through the

location in question.

Due to Cashmere Rd being

“strongly” residential and the

fact it was nearby green spaces,

schools and other amenities,

pedestrian demand was high.

Pupils

rewarded for

summertime

reading

A SUMMER reading challenge

has enabled a primary school to

win a prize delicious enough that

even the Cookie Monster would

be envious.

Taking part in the city council

libraries’ annual Summertime

Reading Challenge paid off for

West Spreydon Primary School

pupils who received Cookie Time

treats last week.

The challenge celebrates the joy

of reading, encouraging people of

all ages to simply pick up a book

and read during the summer

holidays.

The challenge took place from

the beginning of December last

year to the end of February.

Children under 13-years-old were

encouraged to read at least three

books and describe what they

thought about each book using

three adjectives.

There was also a competition for

children older than 13, and adults.

Along with prizes for individual

readers, Bromley Primary School,

and Diamond Harbour School

were also in the mix of winners

who received cookies and book

packs.

Genealogy a passion and an addiction

• By Bea Gooding

“IF YOU figure there are 25

years between a generation,

then 500 years ago there were

1,048,576 people involved in

creating us.”

For Fiona Lees, getting to the

bottom of her family roots was

like an addiction.

Just like the women who established

the NZ Society of Genealogists,

the Canterbury branch

convener has been hungry to

learn more about her origins

since she was a teenager.

The first generation mainlander

born to Scottish parents

started feeding her passion for

family history after conversations

with her grandmother led

to more questions than answers.

She started to connect the

dots in her little notebook full

of important dates to determine

“whose brother was who,” later

growing into a passion to help

others trace their roots.

“I’ve managed to prove that

one [family] line was an adopted

line through records and oldstyle

sleuthing,” said Lees who

described her most rewarding

discoveries.

“I’ve also managed to prove

that my family was shipwrecked

in 1862 off the Isle of Wight in

the United Kingdom. The Times

in London gave my ancestors’

names.

“It’s a passion and addiction –

once you’ve been bitten, that’s it.”

The society, based in Auckland,

has promoted the study

of family history and genealogies

since 1967, providing the

necessary tools and expertise

for others to make their own

discoveries.

The late Lucy Marshall and her

friends had a shared curiosity

about their ancestors and eventually

started a group.

More than 50 years later, it

morphed into a national society

and has since grown into more

than 60 regional branches across

the country.

Established in 1968, that makes

the Canterbury regional branch

the oldest in New Zealand.

Lees was appointed the Canterbury

convener in July last year

and has been on the committee

for more than 10 years. But her

involvement spans back to the

1980s.

Retiring last year, she worked

for the city council for 35 years

as a technical application specialist

helping internal staff with

their computers.

As the convener, she puts

together monthly newsletters,

deals with memberships and

transcribes school records for

future genealogists as it was an

“underused” record in NZ.

“In Britain, there are census

records with raw data being kept

where you can track your family

every 10 years,” she said.

“But in NZ, governments saw

fit not to keep that raw data and

only had summaries on how

many people lived in suburbs.

School records tell you where

you’ve come from, who your

guardians are, your age, and

where you’re going to next –

you can track a family through

there.”

Based at the Parklands Community

Centre, the society had

many resources on hand including

a branch library, computers,

paper records, parish registers

and monumental inscriptions.

People can become members

and connect with other family

history enthusiasts nationwide to

share tips and tricks on research

methods.

“We encourage people who

come to the library to have the

basics about yourself, your parents

and grandparents, it’s good

to have a skeleton tree. Otherwise

by the time they’ve talked

for five minutes you’ve lost all

the information,” Lees said.

for hungry-to-learn Fiona

“We have people rock up and

say: ‘I want to learn more about

my family, I think they came

from Denmark.’ So people

who are interested in searching

that area have a meeting, share

ideas and tips on how or where

to find things.”

The process was not always

simple seeing as 80 per cent

of information could not be

found online, but having the

internet nonetheless definitely

made things easier.

“We used to have to go and

write letters, visit places to get

information but now you’ve

got lots of information online,”

she said.

But most genealogists were

not interested in just a list of

facts – the importance of social

history built a much better picture

of how that person lived.

Putting the facts together

and shaping it into a story

“makes it far more fun.”

“It’s always nice to put your

person in a place with what

else was happening in the

world at that time. A list of

facts is a bit boring,” she said.

“Most of the real genealogists

aren’t just interested in

names and the date of birth,

marriage and death. They

actually want to learn more

about people, what they did,

where they lived and why they

shifted countries.”

Over the years, the branch

has seen a rise in people wanting

to know more about where

they came from through the

avenue of DNA testing.

“We’re also finding people

are related to each other within

the branch through DNA

which is fun,” she said.

But DNA testing did not

always have the most desirable

results.

Although people could trace

their ethnicity or find birth

families if they were adopted,

finding out they were not

related to someone was “devastating.”

“There are brick walls that

will never be solved,” Lees

said.

“But for some people, the

downside with DNA is showing

that who you thought was

your father, actually wasn’t.

That has been really devastating.”

Lees shares her addiction of

family history with her husband,

David, throughout 40

years of marriage.

The mutual understanding

meant date nights were a little

more interesting in odd places

like cemeteries and libraries.

For Lees, that passion was

wanting to know more about

where she came from and what

influences made her the person

she is today,

But knowing your roots can

also be essential to one’s own

survival.

“For some, it might even be

a health component. Heart

attacks, strokes or Alzheimer’s

might run in the family.

Looking at what people died

of might be a push for some

people.”

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment you

should know that it will work for you. Call

and only pay $50 on that treament.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the

door and there is ample parking. To enquire about joint pain treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

Pool party planned for friendly pooches

THE CITY’S most anticipated

doggy swim event is back, and

it’s sure to set tails wagging.

The city council’s annual

pooch pool party will be held on

April 10 at Waltham Pool.

City council head of recreation,

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 Bill Simpson writes

about the history of

Beachville

It wasn’t long ago that some of

the most highly-priced real estate

in Christchurch was a squatters’

village.

We call it Beachville now and

sports and events Nigel Cox said

that if previous events were anything

to go by, this one was sure

to be a hit.

“It’s a great outing for the

whole family. Everyone always

leaves with a smile on their face

the views over the estuary and

the mountains are magnificent.

The first European settlers

there were squatters, a bunch

of happy fishermen, content to

build shacks and while away

their time enjoying the view, a

tipple or three and each other’s

company no doubt.

In reality, they provided

Christchurch with a constant

supply of fish.

Patiki (flounder) were once

abundant here; the area was

actually known as Waipatiki

(flounder water).

Up until the 1930s Fisherman’s

Flat was a bustling village, with

a wide beach where both cockles

and shrimp were abundant, and

mudflats where residents could

spear flounders and eels.

Redcliffs shrimps were considered

a delicacy and were sent

throughout the country. But the

wide, shallow beach was filled in

… and the dogs are ecstatic.”

There are just a few rules –

only one dog per owner, and no

humans in the pool.

“We also ask that only

vaccinated and well-behaved

dogs come along.’’

ESTUARY MATTERS

Squatters’ village now prime real estate

NATURAL: Thousands of dead krill recently turned

Southshore beach pink. According to reports the same

thing happened in 1898.

harvesting.

Sponsored by Jim’s Dog Wash,

the Pooch Pool Party is split into

two sessions based on size.

Small to medium-sized dogs –

up to 56 cm tall – will be invited

in to make a splash between

10am and noon, while a separate

estuary and the water edge along

Southshore opposite Beachville

turned red.

An early account reports the

same thing happening in 1898.

In May that year, the beaches at

Fishermans Flat were covered

large dogs between 1pm and

3pm. The $3.50 entry fee will go

After the event, the pool

will be drained for its winter

shutdown.

with what was called “whale

food” and then, as happened this

year, the foreshore was said to be

painted red.

It is fascinating to note that

this land we now call Beachville

was part of a parcel of land

bought by William Moorhouse

and his brothers just after they

arrived in Christchurch in 1851.

Moorhouse became

a superintendent of the

Canterbury Provincial

Government and was the

champion of the Lyttelton rail

tunnel which opened in 1867.

The land passed out of the

hands of the Moorhouses in

1877. Later, in 1895, it was subdivided

into 96 sections.

But it seems that it took many

years before permanent houses

were built there. In the meantime

the squatting fishermen

built their huts and enjoyed free

rent.

Cashmere High School’s A team in action against

St Andrew’s College A last week. After some good

performances, Cashmere finished the three-day

tournament sixth overall, with St Andrew’s coming

in seventh during the Canterbury senior secondary

school indoor volleyball championships held at Pioneer

Recreation & Sport Centre and Cowles Stadium. Twenty

boys and 29 girls teams from secondary schools around

Canterbury entered the senior tournament, aimed at year

11-13 players. The event provided a good warm-up for

the winning teams going on to compete at the national

championships in Palmerston North later this month.

HOME & HEATING

The facts about home ventilation

Balanced Pressure

vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need

to be suitably ventilated, either with

opening windows or forced ventilation.

Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this

provision is to safeguard people from

illness or loss of amenity due to lack of

fresh air.” There are many benefits to

forced, or mechanical, ventilation over

opening windows, including warmth,

security, reduction of outside noises and

reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in

from outside via the roof space and force

the stale air out through gaps around

windows and doors. The incoming air

from these systems

has to be heated

or cooled to keep

the house warm in

winter or cool in

summer.

The Smooth-

Air HEX390 is a

‘balanced pressure’

system. It extracts

air from the house

and at the same

time brings in

fresh air. These

two streams of air

pass through a heat

exchanger, which

warms incoming air in winter and cools in

summer if air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of the energy

which would be wasted using a traditional

positive pressure system is recovered,

resulting in significant energy savings and

therefore lower heating or cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure

ventilation systems have been considerably

more expensive than traditional positive

pressure systems. However, with Smooth-

Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a

HEX390 balanced pressure system can be

installed for a similar price as a traditional

positive pressure system.

You can contact Smooth-Air on sales@

smooth-air.co.nz or 0800 SMOOTH.

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.
