A SURGE in petty crime across

suburbs in the north and west

has prompted more community

patrols and the establishment of

an anti-crime initiative.

Stolen vehicles, car and house

break-ins, or graffiti are just some

of the problems residents say have

increased in St Albans and Edgeware

in recent weeks.

St Albans Residents’

Association chairman Jason

Harvey has noticed an influx

of posts about crime in

neighbourhood groups on

Facebook, like the St Albans –

Christchurch Community Group.

Places like empty building sites

in St Albans were a magnet for

trouble, he said.

“There’s been a lot of posts

about things getting stolen,

vehicle break-ins, even house

break-ins.

“It’s really good news that the

community patrol is taking that

proactive approach.”

Interest sought to form Lions Club

• By Bea Gooding

BELFAST AND Northwood

residents may soon have a Lions

Club to call their own if there is

enough interest.

After the Riccarton-Waimairi

Lions Club helped build a vegetable

garden at Belfast School

earlier this year, further school

and community projects were

identified in the area.

Discussions with local groups

like the Belfast Community

Network led to an opportunity

to form a Lions Club which

solely targets the Belfast and

Northwood area.

New club development consultant

John Benefield said Belfast

School was an example of

why Lions assistance was needed

to get community projects off

the ground, especially if other

funding dried up.

And when the former

Christchurch North club in

Papanui closed down a few

months ago due to ageing

members, it left a gap in the

area.

Said Benefield: “Belfast School

will be split into two sites. The

existing site is being remodelled

and the new site on Johns Rd is

going to be for seniors. But the

Ministry of Education won’t

HELPING OUT: Lions Club members are synonymous for community projects.

provide things like gardens, tool

sheds or landscaping because

it’s not deemed as a new school,

therefore the cost falls back on

the community.”

Lions Clubs International

is a service organisation that

undertakes community projects

and is a chance for members to

give back.

It meets with representatives

like schools, police, churches,

and youth group leaders to identify

what is needed to make their

community a more attractive

place to live.

Many community projects

which meet the criteria can be

eligible for funding grants and

assistance from within Lions

organisations.

“After we finish assisting

with the development of Belfast

School’s remodelled site, there

are going to be a lot of potential

projects and I can see a Lions

Club working alongside the city

council and the community

board to improve amenities

around Belfast and Northwood,”

Benefield said.

•If you are interested in

taking part, head along

to the meeting on April

13 at Belfast Community

Network, 7.30pm.

In Brief

DOG PARK MAY BE

RENAMED

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board are

investigating options to rename

The Groynes Dog Park to honour a

former community board member.

City council staff will report back

to the board on whether or not to

rename it to the Yvonne Palmer

Dog Park in honour of the former

Shirley/Papanui Community

Board chairwoman of more than

20 years. Palmer has devoted

decades of her life to public service,

particularly for the elderly. Last

year she was diagnosed with

Guillain-Barre syndrome and was

left fighting for her life while in

intensive care for several weeks.

PLEA TO FIX TOILET BLOCK,

NETBALL COURTS

The Belfast Netball Club has

written to the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood and Papanui-

Innes community boards about

fixing the Belfast netball courts

and toilet blocks. The courts need

replacing as it poses health and

safety risks, including flooding and

cracked concrete, after minimal

upgrades in the past 20 years.

Repairs have been included in the

city council’s 2021-2031 Long Term

Plan, but the club wants it fixed

sooner rather than later for the

upcoming season.

Community patrol

identifies hot spots

and acts as deterrent

• From page 1

Community patrol chairman

John Hewitson said volunteers

work closely with police, who

often assign tasks and request

their presence in problem areas

they identified.

Merely driving a patrol

car down a street acted as a

deterrent, because criminals

know they are being watched.

“We’re forewarned if there’s

an area [with] a lot of burglaries,

and St Albans has come up on

that list. It comes and goes, but

it just seems to get worse in St

Albans,” he said.

“Four-wheel-drives have been

taken, bike thefts in another area

and Stanmore Rd is quite a hot

spot.

“If we see anything we report

it to the police, but we don’t put

ourselves in danger because

we’re volunteers. Visibility of the

car is the deterrent more than

anything else.”

Police did not respond to

questions asked by Nor’West

News by deadline. But last

week they warned residents to

remain vigilant after 166 bike

thefts worth the equivalent of

$250,000 have been stolen in

the past six weeks around the

central city.

Meanwhile, a Community

Safety Initiative Working Group

has been formed to also address

growing crimes of a similar

nature in Bishopdale, as well as

Avonhead and Russley.

The group, which involves

Neighbourhood Support

Canterbury and the

Christchurch North Community

Patrol, will facilitate residents

providing informal feedback

to self-identify any hot spots to

focus on.

It aimed to help residents

feel safe by recognising and

resourcing where possible based

on the feedback, and supported

opportunities for community

partnerships and activities to

respond to their issues.

“The group looked at recorded

evidence and police reported

statistics; an increase was not

clearly shown in these statistics.

It is possible that the crimes,

while being reported on social

media, are not perhaps being

reported to more official

sources,” a Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

area report for March read.

DELIGHTED:

Children at the

Christchurch

Methodist

Mission’s early

childhood service

appreciate the

new mural. ​

New mural delights children

at not-for-profit pre-school

CHILDREN at the Christchurch

Methodist Mission’s early

childhood service arrived at

the centre last week to see a

vibrant new mural outside their

premises.

Spanning two walls, the mural

features Aratupu’s signature

piwakawaka, as well as totara

and other flora and fauna

that were once indigenous to

Papanui.

The children loved the huge

piwakawaka, the baby birds and

the ladybird in particular.

The mural adds much-needed

colour to a busy stretch of Harewood

Rd, enhancing the area

with a joyful example of public

art for all to appreciate.

CMM is grateful for funding

from the Papanui-Innes Community

Board, Creative New

Zealand and other generous

Aratupu funders.

“Thanks also to chile_onenz of

the New Brighton Outdoor Art

Foundation for his design and

talented artwork,” said a CMM

spokeswoman.

The mural completes the

exterior revamp of the building,

which was last year enhanced

with the new Aratupu logo.

Aratupu is a not-for-profit

preschool that offers quality education

to children from threemonths-old

to school age.

Its last Education Review

Office report found Aratupu

promoted positive learning

outcomes for tamariki, with

teachers demonstrating a strong

commitment to the centre’s

philosophy, vision and values

of a socially just and inclusive

society.

Aratupu is run by the

Methodist Mission.

Aratupu staff include a

whānau support worker, an

on-site social worker dedicated

to helping whānau resolve any

issues or problems that may

require particular support.

New entrants were welcome.

If you know of any children

who would benefit from an

Aratupu education, phone

352 6816.

Removal of car parks questioned Discovery

• From page 1

Transport planning and

delivery manager Lynette Ellis

did not specify whether this was

an oversight by the city council

but said it takes time to apply for

and get the authority.

Association president Dr

Garth Wilson

said residents

were not only

frustrated the

work would

take longer,

but they

also did not

Catherine

Chu

think the city

council were

transparent

enough on whether it was an

error on their behalf.

Residents were also inconvenienced

as some equipment, such

as barriers, road cones or signage

remained on the road while

the consent awaited approval.

Riccarton ward councillor

Catherine Chu did not respond

to Western News questions by

the deadline.

Said Wilson: “The council sent

a letter to residents but it didn’t tell

the whole truth, the council was

not transparent to residents about

the cause of the delay and they

didn’t admit it as their error.”

“Residents were inconvenienced

for two months, the

barriers set out on the roadside

adjoined their driveways and

had to stay there.

“How much has this incompetence

by the city council cost the

ratepayer?”

The South Express cycleway

will connect the edge of the city

in Templeton to the central city,

with part of it being built in Riccarton.

Connecting to Ballantyne

Ave from Main South Rd, the

cycleway will make its way

through parts of Suva St, Middleton

Rd and park, Lochee

Rd, Wharenui Rd, Peverel St,

Elizabeth St, Picton Ave and

Blenheim Rd to Hagley Park.

Along the northern side of

Peverel St, on-street parking will

be removed next to Harrington

Park to make way for the 3m,

two-way separated cycleway.

Wainui St resident Stephen

Kennington questioned whether

the removal of parking would

make access to Harrington Park

unsafe for pedestrians.

In the city council’s plan,

raised platforms are being built

at the Piko Cres, Centennial Ave

and Tika St intersections to improve

crossing points and slow

vehicles down as they approach

the road.

“The park is used by families,

on family fun days [there]

hundreds of adults and children

enjoy it,” he said.

“The problem I see is that

the cycleway is being placed

on the Harrington Park side

of Peverel St; losing the shady

parking. It will entail crossing

the street and a two-way cycle

lane to access the park from

CONCERNS:

COUNCIL

parking on the other side of the

street.

“Is that a great idea?”

Ellis said the north side of

Peverel St was chosen to provide

better access for people walking

or biking to and through the

park.

It minimises the number

of vehicle entranceways the

cycleway needs to cross and

reduces parking impacts on

Harrington Dairy.

But in terms of delays on

Elizabeth St, Ellis said investigation

work on-site was done to

assess whether archaeological

authority was needed.

“It takes some time to apply

for and get an archaeological

authority, as there is some investigation

work that needs to be

done before it can be issued.”

Air Force vet sponsors student for solo flight

WHEN AIR Force veteran

Derrick Hubbard flew solo

on his 90th birthday with the

Canterbury Recreational

Aircraft Club, he and his now

late wife, Vera, decided to pay it

forward.

Now 94, the Summerset at

Wigram retirement village

resident and his wife of 70 years

wanted to sponsor a young

person to experience the same

opportunity.

Derrick, originally from

England, joined the Royal Air

Force as an aircraft apprentice at

RAF Halton in 1943.

After serving as an engineer

alongside some Kiwis in No 24

Squadron during World War 2,

it cemented his desire to move to

New Zealand, which happened

in 1958.

He later joined the RNZAF

where he served for 24 years.

Amid the height of Covid-19

and following his wife’s death

last year, Derrick approached

CRAC flying instructor, Dave

Mitchell, and Air Force Museum

of New Zealand education

officer, Chris Davey, to seek out a

deserving young trainee pilot.

After a rigorous application

process, 16-year-old Rangiora

High School student Armani

Hansen received funding from

Derrick and Vera for lessons on

how to achieve a solo flight.

Armani has had a passion

for flight from a young age and

was already working part-time

at the Rangiora New World

supermarket to save for his longterm

goal to become a pilot.

He was also selected for a

Gateway Aviation programme at

high school to enhance his flight

theory knowledge.

OPPORTUNITY:

Air Force veteran

Derrick Hubbard,

94, and his

late wife, Vera,

sponsored

Armani Hansen,

16, to achieve his

first solo flight. ​

Flight instructor Mitchell put

Armani through his paces in

weekly flying lessons. At the

Rangiora Airfield last week

Armani was scheduled for a

further flying lesson.

As with most trainee pilots,

he had no prior warning of his

solo flight, as it is only when

the student is deemed ready by

the instructor who gives the goahead

to take off on their own.

With Armani’s family

secretly escorted into the CRAC

clubrooms, the group watched

as Mitchell instructed Armani

through “touch and go”

circuits, before taxiing to the

clubrooms.

“I told him we were taxiing

back to the threshold for another

take-off, and when near the

clubhouse I added – ‘but this

time you are doing it on your

own. I am getting out now’,”

Mitchell said.

With Derrick watching from

his home at Summerset via video

call, Armani took off and did a

circuit of the airfield, with an

empty seat next to him.

As he executed “a textbook

landing,” he finally spotted his

family next to the clubhouse.

Said Armani: “It was a very

exciting and exhilarating

experience that I will never

forget. When Dave got off the

plane and said I was going to

go up solo, I couldn’t keep the

grin off my face, even though it

was nerve-racking; the thought

of knowing that I would be at

1200ft all alone.

“Thank you so much to

Derrick for giving me the

Hubbard flying opportunity

– I will be forever grateful.

Thanks to Chris for all of your

organising and for choosing me,

and to Dave for getting me ready

to go solo.”

Said Armani’s mother Serena:

“I was nervous and scared but,

above all, just so excited for him.

He’s worked so hard and been so

determined to make his dream

of being a pilot come true and

this is an amazing step towards

that goal.”

HOME & HEATING

Ground moisture barrier

under low sub-floor

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm

and healthy for their families throughout

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects

many of our older properties which suffer

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests have

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise

from the ground and enter a house every day,

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and

musty smells. Moulds can produce various

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and

very young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home.

While insulation is important, it has been

recognised that it is dampness that is the real

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes

Standards introduced by the government

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has

a requirement to install ground moisture

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight

moisture in the home.

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation

on the underside of a timber floor can occur

where the floor is suspended over damp

ground and the inside air temperature falls

close to the crawl space air temperature.

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier

under the suspended wooden floor of your

home, even when there is no crawl space.

• BRANZ Appraised; Appraisal Number 961

• Members of the Insulation Association of

New Zealand.

• We offer a free measure and quote in the

Canterbury region with no obligations.

• Assessments can be made in all other

regions by arrangement.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote

and complimentary appraisal of your

underfloor ground moisture barrier needs.

ATTACK RISING DAMP

Bathroom ventilation

The extraction of air from the bathroom

should be a priority for all houses and

commercial buildings.

Bathrooms can generate a large quantity

of steam and odours. It is important

this compromised air does not circulate

around the house.

Bathroom odours can be unpleasant,

especially when near living, sleeping or

working areas.

The moisture generated by showers and

baths can be damaging to your home and

furnishings and be a major contribution

to condensation. Damp houses are not a

healthy environment for anyone to live in,

especially for children or other vulnerable

people.

By extracting air from the bathroom to

outside, warmer air from inside the house

will move in to the bathroom. Whereas

opening a window can draw cold air

into the bathroom and blow the smelly,

moisture laden

bathroom air into

the house.

Modern houses

are built to be

very airtight and

require mechanical

ventilation such

as extraction fans

or heat exchanger

systems. Although

older houses can

be draughty, the air

often flows in the

wrong direction.

Therefore, they also

usually require mechanical ventilation to

keep the air quality higher.

The quality of the air we breathe affects

our health and ability to perform. We

breathe in and out approximately 20,000

litres of air every day. It is therefore very

important to ensure good air quality

indoors through adequate ventilation.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required extraction for your

bathrooms, and look into air exchange for

your whole building. Smooth-Air offers a

wide range of ventilation equipment, from

air vents to ducting for fans, for both the

commercial and domestic markets.

They have an extensive range of

fans and ventilation components

in-store but they can also provide

innovative solutions tailored to differing

requirements. You can contact Smooth-

Friends and former rivals to attend centenary

• By Chris Barclay

TON OF ACHIEVEMENT: New Brighton Rugby Club

weekend’s celebrations.

THE NEW Brighton Rugby

Club celebrates its centenary

this weekend with rivalries from

near and far, past and present,

underpinning the festivities.

Rotorua’s Whakarewarewa club

is making the trip south to play

a golden oldies game on Good

Friday at Rawhiti Domain, the

first of five games scheduled for

the holiday weekend.

The centenary game will be

played on Saturday afternoon

when the premier grade team

face Linwood, the jerseys worn

by the home side will be auctioned

post-match.

A centenary dinner will be

held at Addington Raceway on

Sunday night, where multiple

world and Olympic champion

Eric Murray, who was recently

named decade champion alongside

rowing partner Hamish

Bond at the Halberg Awards, is

the guest speaker.

New Brighton’s team of the

century will also be named at the

function.

“We’re delighted to have about

60 people from Whakarewarewa

down for the weekend,” said

centenary committee chairman

Wayne Turner.

“The club had a very strong relationship

with Whakarewarewa

through the 1970s and 1980s

and we’re keen to rekindle that

relationship.”

The club has laid claim to four

All Blacks, though none are

expected to attend.

New Brighton’s first All

Black, Dr Hugh Burry, played

11 matches on the tour of South

Africa in 1960.

The loose forward, who was

never selected for a test, died in

2013, aged 82.

Hamilton-born prop Kerry

Tanner played for New Brighton

after transferring to Canterbury

from Auckland, where a switch

from loose forward to the front

row led to him playing seven

tests between 1974-76.

Lock Isaac Ross was capped

All Black and Canterbury

prop Kerry Tanner joined

New Brighton after moving

from Auckland.

nine times in 2009 while midfield

back Ryan Crotty is the

club’s most prolific All Black,

playing 48 tests between 2013-19.

Ross and Crotty are currently

playing in Japan while Turner

said Tanner could not be contacted.

However, there will be plenty

of local ‘heroes’ in attendance

with former Canterbury captain

Ian Penrose, the current club

patron, and Wayne Burleigh – a

member of the 1982-85 Ranfurly

Shield era squad leading the way.

penalty goal in the 1970

Canterbury vs Southland

Ranfuly shield match at

Lancaster Park.

Former Crusaders Tyson Keats

and Kieran Fonotia represent a

more recent vintage which also

includes current Crusaders prop

Oliver Jager and hooker Nathan

Vella.

Highlanders flanker Billy

Harmon, who should be in the

city to play his former Super

Rugby team on Friday night,

is also expected to make an

appearance.
