Four-week delay to completion

of Woolston Village upgrade

BROUGHAM ST motorists may

WORK ON the multi-million

dollar upgrade of Woolston

Village has been extended for

four weeks, with contractors

now expected to finish at the

end of this month.

City council planning and

delivery manager Lynette Ellis

said the streetscape project has

experienced delays due to the

complex nature of the work.

The upgrades include installing

new pedestrian crossings,

mini plazas, wider footpaths,

cycle lanes, and landscaping,

which were meant to be completed

by the end of last month.

“Unfortunately, when you’re

working underneath the ground

unexpected things happen or

things don’t go to plan. As a result,

our contractor’s work programme

has progressed more

slowly than originally planned,”

said Ellis.

“This is a fairly complex

project involving the renewal of

100-year-old wastewater pipes

and working around a network

of underground services. The

contractor has also had to contend

with significant concrete

foundations and steel tram

UNEXPECTED: The Woolston Village upgrades will now take one month longer than

planned.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE ​

tracks that date back to the days

when trams rattled along Ferry

Rd towards Sumner.’’

The project is currently on

track to finish at the end of this

month, instead of March as

originally indicated.

The team will also complete

the bulk of the planting and

landscaping work during the

winter months.

“We know parts of this project

have been noisy and disruptive

and want to thank the Woolston

community for their patience

and understanding as we upgrade

the Village centre,’’ Ellis

said

“Woolston’s vibrant business

centre is open for business, so I

encourage people to keep shopping

locally and support your

community.

“On-street parking on Ferry

Rd isn’t available right now,

but there’s lots of alternative

parking around the village. It

might mean a bit of a walk, but

Woolston businesses would love

to see you.”

Pipe repairs

likely to

disrupt traffic

experience delays over the coming

months as work is carried out

to replace an ageing stormwater

pipe underneath the Barrie St

intersection.

The brick barrel pipe dates back

to 1910 and has reached the end of

its life.

“The work will be carried out

over the next two to three months

and will be done in stages to reduce

the disruption to traffic,’’ said city

council stormwater and waterways

programme manager Keith Davison.

“While the work is carried

out, we will be maintaining two

lanes of traffic in each direction

on Brougham St during the day.

However, there will be a speed reduction

in place and Barrie St and

James K Baxter Pl may be closed at

times.”

Crews will be working at night

as Brougham St will be reduced to

one lane.

“Unfortunately the night work

might disturb residents living

nearby, but the crews will be

working to get the noisy part of the

work done as early as possible in

their shift to keep the disruption to

a minimum.”

Gulf Wars

How We Kept The Cup

by richard Gladwell

Gulf Wars is a pictorially driven celebration of Emirates Team New Zealand’s

America’s Cup win in Auckland 2021, written from an on the water perspective

by one of the world’s most influential America’s Cup photo-journalists,

Richard Gladwell.

Richard Gladwell is an international sailing journalist and photographer who

lives in New Zealand. He began sailing when he was ten years old and first

wrote about the America’s Cup five years later. A Kiwi representative sailor,

he competed internationally in dinghies and keelboats for 12 years, sailing

with and against some of the current senior members of Emirates Team New

Zealand. He has covered the America’s Cup and Team New Zealand in its

various renditions for the past 35 years.

Between Five Eyes

50 years of Intelligence Sharing

by Anthony r. Wells

UK/US intelligence and the wider Five Eyes community of Canada, Australia and New

Zealand is primarily about one main thing: Relationships. In this remarkable book,

Anthony Wells charts fifty years of change, turmoil, intense challenges, successes and

failures, and never-ending abiding Five Eyes relationships. He traces the development

of institutions that he firmly believes have sustained, and indeed may have saved,

Western democracies and their allies from those ill disposed to the value system and

culture of our nations. More than a chronology of the UK/US intelligence community

during this fifty-year period, it is also a personal insight into key relationships and the

abiding strength of the United States and the United Kingdom and its Five Eyes allies

relationships. The author is the only living person to have worked for British Intelligence

as a British citizen and US Intelligence as a US citizen. He was a fully trained and

accredited security officer for two US intelligence organizations, and used his own

extensive unclassified collection of papers, personal notes and diaries, as well as his

family library for source material to create this book.

A Nurse’s Story

by Louise Curtis with Sarah Johnson

Moving, honest and inspiring – this is a nurse’s true story of life in a busy A&E department

during the Covid-19 crisis.

Working in A&E is a challenging job but nurse Louise Curtis loves it. She was newly

qualified as an advanced clinical practitioner, responsible for life or death decisions

about the patients she saw, when the unthinkable happened and the country was hit by

the Covid-19 pandemic. The stress on the NHS was huge and for the first time in her

life, the job was going to take a toll on Louise herself.

In A Nurse’s Story she describes what happened next, as the trickle of Covid patients

became a flood. And just as tragically, staff in A&E were faced with the effects of lockdown

on society. They worried about their regulars, now missing, and saw an increase in

domestic abuse victims and suicide attempts as loneliness hit people hard. By turns

heartbreaking and heartwarming, this book shines a light on the compassion and

dedication of hospital staff during such dark times.

The Auschwitz Photographer

Based on the true story of Wilhelm Brasse

by Luca Crippa and Maurizio Onnis

When Germany invaded Wilhelm Brasse’s native Poland in 1939, he was asked to swear

allegiance to Hitler and join the Wehrmacht. He refused. He was deported to Auschwitz

concentration camp as political prisoner number 3444. A trained portrait photographer,

he was ordered by the SS to record the inner workings of the camp. He began by taking

identification photographs of the prisoners as they entered the camp, went on to capture

the criminal medical experiments of Josef Mengele, and also recorded executions.

Between 1940 and 1945, Brasse took around 50,000 photographs of the horror around

him. He took them because he had no choice.

Eventually, Brasse’s conscience wouldn’t allow him to hide behind his camera. First he risked

his life by joining the camp’s Resistance movement, faking documents for prisoners, trying

to smuggle images to the outside world to reveal what was happening. Then, when Soviet

troops finally advanced on the camp to liberate it, Brasse refused SS orders to destroy his

photographs. ‘Because the world must know,’ he said.

Crusade On!

Celebrating 25 years Of The Crusaders

By Matt McIlraith

The Crusaders are not just another sports team. Out of a modest beginning grew the

most formidable professional club entity rugby has ever seen. Yet sustained on-field

excellence is just part of the story of a team that succeeded by living its stated ethos of

hard work, the embracement of diversity, and a commitment to represent its people with

pride and humility. Join the crusade as Matt McILraith takes you inside the club’s first

25-years, dissecting the key moments, the successes and the rare failures, complete with

season analysis, biographies of all 245 players, and the five head coaches, as well as

statistics from all 370 games the team played. A 360-degree portrait, Crusade On also

introduces some of the larger-than-life personalities, from within the team and off the

field, all of whom helped to make the Crusaders what they are. The way the Crusaders

accomplished their success, with no one person more important than any other, and

the enduring culture they created to sustain it, is an example of continued achievement

that is as relevant for the boardroom as it is for the sporting arena. On-going success in

any pursuit is not achieved by accident. This is why the Crusaders’ story is so important.

Helping cats live out their nine lives

• By Bea Gooding

JOYCE LATHAM never grew up

with a pet.

But when a furry feline invited

itself into her family home one

day her relationship with cats

changed forever.

Now, the president of the Cats

Protection League Canterbury is

the proud owner of six cats, most

of whom have special needs.

And for the past 13 years, she

has been on a mission to save as

many cats in the city as possible.

“My family didn’t have cats,

but a cat walked in once and

from there, I became very much

a cat person,’’ said the Bryndwr

resident.

It was not difficult to foster

her own felines, she said, having

plenty of experience running a

cattery herself with usually 40 to

50 cats at a time.

The league rescue, rehabilitate

and rehome stray and

abandoned cats, and provide assistance

to those who could not

afford to desex their cats through

its Feline Fix programme.

Desexing your cat, particularly

tomcats, was crucial to help reduce

the rate of feline AIDS and

decrease the number of kittens

being brought into places like the

league.

About 50 volunteers came in

MISSION: Joyce Latham with Hope who has found a new

home.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

once a week to help out in the

cattery, office and shop, as well

as about four managers who

worked there regularly.

They also often found new

homes for cats that could no

longer be looked after, such as an

owner who was moving into a

retirement home.

Last year, the league rehomed

535 cats and kittens.

But it did not stop there – the

protection league provides emergency

cat food assistance and for

unexpected vet bills as well.

“Sometimes their own cats

have had kittens and we do take

them in when approached to

help rehome them,” Latham said.

“There are enough cats in

Christchurch and Canterbury

to go well around all of the organisations,

we’ve actually got a

waiting list.”

Its second-hand shop in Linwood

was also a vital part of the

fundraising efforts, especially

with no government funding.

All store proceeds went towards

work to help the felines of

Canterbury.

When she is not reading or

gardening at home, Latham

volunteers her time feeding the

cats and acts as the matchmaker

when facilitating the rehoming

process.

After leaving a government

office job, she decided to dedicate

most of her energy to the league

and has done so since 2007.

“I like to match appropriate

cats to people with cats that suit

them,” she said.

“Some of them are a little older

or have special needs and need

medication, but we just talk with

people about what the cats are

like; their personalities.”

With so many success stories,

it was hard for Latham to pick

a particular instance that impacted

her the most.

But on the protection league’s

website, there were endless pages

of updates and photos from

owners on how their little furry

friend was getting along in their

new forever home.

There was one case where a lost

cat was brought into the cattery

and eventually reunited with its

owner after four years thanks to

its microchip.

Said Latham: “It’s why all of

us volunteer. When people give

feedback and say how the cats

have settled down, how much

they love them, it’s a constant

reward to know you’ve done a really

good job of helping to match

them up.

“It’s rewarding to know these

cats have had a second chance

in life and they’ve gone to really

loving homes.”

But there was always a downside.

Even though the league was

sheltered from tending to abused

or injured animals due to the

statutory role the SPCA played,

it was impossible to save them

all.

During the Covid-19 level 4

lockdown, things were made

worse when they were unable to

rehome any cats.

But rest assured, the cats that

do need homes end up finding

one, even if it takes a couple of

years.

“Cats are being surrendered to

us from homes, so we don’t see

the neglect and abuse – that’s the

SPCA’s role,” Latham said.

“The downside is knowing that

you can’t save every single cat

out there who don’t have homes

and aren’t desexed, therefore are

having kittens after kittens.

“But we save what we can and

focus on the ones we do save,

and that’s the main thing.”

We are approaching the end of Term 1 and it has been a busy

akonga on their achievements this term and their commitment

to study and mahi. Our akonaga’s achievements next term are

very closely linked to their efforts this term and their results

at the end of the year are the culmination of four terms of

their commitment and hard work!

I would like to share with you my message to akonga at our

raise a child.” We are the village and our akonga are being

raised by us collectively. I am proud to be part of that journey.

Term one has been a busy 11 weeks for us all, and many of you have worked hard and as a result

many of you have achieved the goals you set for yourself way back in February. Well done!

As a contributor at Haeata you understand what it means to be responsible for your own actions.

Responsibility means you can be called to account for your actions. It means that you are liable,

accountable and answerable for the things you do and say.

We live in a community where you have rights and we have talked about these all term. We have

also talked about the fact that for every right you enjoy there is a corresponding responsibility.

Your rights:

I want you to take a moment to think about what an amazing country you live in. We are clean,

green and free. We are COVID-19 Free. We are not at war, we do not have to fear that on the

way to school we will be shot at by snipers, we do not have to fear that our buses will be bombed

as we travel to school, we do not have to fear that we may be the victims of a suicide bombing if we

go out to dinner in a restaurant or a movie. This is the reality for many young people your age in

countries around the world.

We all accept that our lifestyle is something we wish to preserve, but what we don’t think about so

much is that it is our responsibility to ensure that it is preserved. That responsibility starts here at

school. This school’s focus is to provide an education that will equip you to live and contribute to

our society in the 21st century.

Here you learn that it is your responsibility to look after each other, to stick up for each other and

to be supportive of the dreams and aspirations of others. It is your responsibility to work hard, take

every opportunity and be the very best you can be.

When you look around this school if you see things that are wrong – like bullying, theft, dishonesty,

confrontation it is your responsibility to speak out and be proactive in stopping such behaviour. It is

your responsibility to be part of the solution not part of the problem.

If you see students getting or having a hard time you have a responsibility to stick up for them, to

ensure that the weakest and most vulnerable of us are protected. Never is it appropriate to stand

back and say “it’s got nothing to do with me”. Be part of the solution NOT part of the problem!!

As a contributor you need to ensure you keep the main thing, the main thing. And what is the main

thing? So whanau, ‘let’s celebrate our akonga’s success! We all have a part to play in that. Let’s own

that as a village! As always, it is a privilege to serve this village!

Like a supernatural being, Toi, we acknowledge you.

The heart quickens at your call. Your heart gladdens the spirit, your spirit

releases the voice, your voice opens the mind, the mind weaves the words,

weaving the words carves the inherited treasures. Inspired by your image sound

resonates, performance thrives, the many faces of imagery captures the eye.

Linked by a soaring voice, fix your eyes on the people. From traditions etched in

the future let your breath be felt. Ignite imagination! Let the mind create beyond

what is seen, so that the arts that inspire continue to do so. Let everyone know

that the arts celebrate the present and create the future On Sunday we had the

first practice for the kapa haka secondary regional competition.

Our Haeata rangatahi have combined forces with Linwood College, Christchurch

Boys High, Christchurch Girls High, St Thomas and Cashmere. Our name is

Kimihia te Matauranga and what a team! We started the day with whanaungatanga.

Creating and nurturing relationships is an essential part of building a

successful competitive team. We played various games and started the process

of getting to know each other, the laughter reverberated through the hall!

Kapa haka is a powerful medium of Māori identity, culture, and pride. It plays

a huge role in the revitalisation of the Māori language and tikanga. It enhances

positive well-being of our ākonga by encouraging a sense of belonging, providing

a safe space in which to practice te reo me ōna tikanga, whilst reinforcing social

collaboration and cohesion.

Our ākonga have committed their weekends over to practices over the coming

months. We look forward to watching our rangatahi grow as a cohesive unit,

Kia kaha, kia toa, kia manawanui.

Manukura

creation story of Ngāi Tahu.

As a kura, we were very lucky to receive a number of tickets to attend the performance Tūmahana today at the

town hall. This was a bilingual performance about the creation story of Ngāi Tahu.

Our very talented Kōmanawa māmā and ex Haeata kaiako, Juanita Hepi, was the creative director, and her equally

talented son and current Haeata ākonga, Manu Smith-Hepi, had a starring role. The show combined toi Māori,

circus, theatre, Taonga Pūoro, and the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. Born of Māku and Māhoranuiātea, the

Sky Father Rakinui had many unions and many children.

One day as he was courting Earth Mother Papatūānuku, the Sea God Takaroa arrived to find Rakinui and Papatūānuku

together. Jealous, Takaroa challenged Rakinui to fight and eventually overcame him. As Rakinui fell on his

wife Papatūānuku, their children became sick from the lack of light and space.

Rakinui told his son Tāne to separate him from their mother Papatūānuku so that they may live healthy lives. Tane

reluctantly separated his parents with the help of his siblings. As the world of light came to be, Tāne realised that

his father was naked in the night. He sets out on a journey to find adornment for him.

The production was enthralling from beginning to end.

The audience (myself included) screamed and clapped in delight throughout the entire performance! When the

cast and crew came on stage to take a bow, Kōmanawa stood to do a haka, Tēnei te ruru, as a show of gratitude.

We finished the day with a kai and a play and Tākaro ā Poi.

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

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

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

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

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

per cent across all ratepayers in

this year’s Draft Annual Plan

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.
