Council ‘bullying’ denied

CONFLICT: Mayor Lianne Dalziel and Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner have rubbished claims of “political bullying” and “dictatorship” from city

councillors Sam MacDonald (above) and Aaron Keown.

• By Matt Slaughter

ACCUSATIONS OF “political

bullying” have emerged after

debate around a proposal

to amend the city council’s

submission to Environment

Canterbury’s Long Term

Plan.

But, the accusations made

by city councillors Sam

MacDonald and Aaron Keown

have been bluntly denied by

Mayor Lianne Dalziel and

Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner,

along with claims the city

council is like a “dictatorship.”

At the city council meeting

last Thursday, MacDonald and

Keown, along with councillors

James Gough, Phil Mauger and

Catherine Chu, asked to amend

the council’s draft submission

on ECan’s 10-year budget

to express concern over the

regional council’s 24.5 per cent

rates increase.

Consultation on the draft

Long Term Plan is now closed.

ECan proposed a 24.5 per

cent rates increase across

Canterbury, but only a 3 per

cent increase for Christchurch

residents.

Dementia unit resident

AN ELDERLY man who was

charged with killing a fellow

resident at a Christchurch

died.

The man, in his 70s, was

charged with manslaughter

after an incident at Heritage

Lifecare last year involving a

His case was going through

the High Court when he died

earlier this year.

Widespread suppression

The court confirmed

Privacy concerns raised over billboard

• By Matt Slaughter

ELECTRONIC billboards with

to record details about residents’

vehicles for advertisers.

This has raised concerns for

Kathryn

Dalziel

which installed

says people

should not being concerned, as

these billboards are not breaching

privacy laws and no personal

information is being collected.

The two billboards are at the

beginning of the Blenheim Rd

overbridge and on the corner of

Brougham and Colombo Sts. Six

more LUMO billboards will be

installed across Christchurch in

the next five months.

These have cameras installed by

company LENS, which capture

WATCHING: Cameras on LUMO billboards on Blenheim Rd and Colombo St are being used to record number plates and

gather information about vehicles.

information from NZTA on the

make, model and year of manufacture

of vehicles that have their

number plate scanned.

This information is fed back to

advertisers who ask LUMO for it.

Said an NZTA spokesperson:

The Land Transport Act (sections

236 and 237) outlines that

any person may apply to the registrar

for access to information

on motor vehicles, provided the

application is made in accordance

with any regulations made

under that part of the Act, and is

accompanied by the prescribed

fee.

“This information is not ‘sold’,

it is provided for a prescribed fee

set on cost recovery basis.”

The main interest in this data

has come from the automotive

industry, but it is also used to

provide insight to companies

selling other goods or services.

Said Dalziel: “It’s that Big

Brother, it’s that 1984, absolutely.

“It can have quite an impact

on people who experience paranoia,

or that just really have an

overwhelming sense of being an

introvert and things like that.

That can be just another thing

that means that they don’t want

to go outside.

“I don’t think they’re breaking

the law . . . the one thing I will

say though, is that there is a

privacy principle that says you

should only collect personal

information from someone if it is

necessary for your purposes. So

is this necessary? That’s probably

the challenge that I would put to

them [LUMO].”

LUMO chief executive Phil

Clemas said people should not be

concerned because the cameras

are not being used to gather any

personal information about people,

just their number plates.

“We’re not collecting any personal

data at all. The camera is

collecting audience data and it’s

very legal. We wouldn’t be doing

it if it was illegal.

Peter finds natural joint support ADVERTISEMENT

KORU NUTRITION

After retiring from our TV

screens after 40 years, veteran

broadcaster Peter Williams still

gets up at 5 am each weekday

morning to prepare for his

morning radio show.

Peter Williams explained,

“Look, I’m 65. When I get up

in the morning, I want to know

that my joints are healthy,

flexible and ready for the day.”

“I recommend Koru FX

cream by Koru Nutrition. It’s

New Zealand made, natural,

fast-acting, long-lasting and has

become NZ’s #1 fastest growing

topical joint and muscle support

cream and I can see why.”

Koru FX cream is a blend

of natural essential oils and

ingredients with calming

properties, like manuka oil,

eucalyptus, and extracts of

arnica.

Koru Nutrition describe Koru

FX Cream as an “effective

natural alternative that is

suitable for daily use.”

Peter Williams explained, “I

really want to make sure my

joints and muscles get the best

support possible as I age. I want

to be able to play golf and stay

active for a while yet.”

“I’ve seen dozens of people

recommending Koru FX cream

for joints but I’m a sceptic. I’ve

been a journalist for 40 years

and I often think, ‘Hmm, you

hear about these sorts of creams

to support joints, but I always

want to review them myself to

see what they’re really like.’”

“With Koru FX cream from

Koru Nutrition - I know it’s the

real thing. It’s packed full of

powerful, natural ingredients

that support joints and muscles

quickly.”

“You can order it online, by

phone, or pick it up at most

pharmacies.”

“Don’t take my word for it

though. I recommend you try

it for yourself to see if it’s right

for you.”

Koru FX contains high quality

oils like calendula, arnica,

manuka and black pepper, along

with 12 others providing the

perfect formulation.

Countless doctors and

pharmacists are recommending

natural ingredients.

Defence force soldier

• By Kurt Bayer

A NEW Zealand Defence Force

soldier has been found guilty of

groping a female subordinate at a

function.

Royal New Zealand Army

Medical Corps staff sergeant

Jeremy Leslie Boyd denied a September

22, 2016 indecent assault

at Burnham Military Camp,

30km south of Christchurch.

The senior non-commissioned

officer faced a court martial at

Burnham Military Camp outside

Christchurch after being charged

under the Crimes Act 1961 –

with an alternative accusation of

common assault.

Boyd also faced a charge of

failing to comply with written

orders contrary to the Armed

Forces Discipline Act 1971,

which alleged that at Burnham

Military Camp on December 5,

2018 he failed to set an example

of good conduct by saying to a

junior subordinate, “this is my

last chance to get you wasted,

corporals are my cut off”, or

words to that effect.

That also had an alternative

charge, of “doing an act likely

to prejudice service discipline”

contrary to the Armed Forces

Discipline Act 1971, again at

Burnham, more than two years

later, on December 5, 2018.

The soldier denied the

charges but has been

found guilty after two days

of evidence at the court

martial.

He is no longer based at

Burnham, the NZDF says.

At the outset of the trial

on Monday, military prosecutor

sub lieutenant Natacha

Wisstt said the case

involved Boyd acting in a

sexually inappropriate manner

towards a female subordinate.

Boyd was alleged to have

told her in a computer room in

2015, “I so want to grab your

arse right now, but I know I

shouldn’t”.

On September 22, 2016, they

were both at a function farewelling

a civilian member of the

unit.

After a formal dinner, they

moved to the warrant officers

and sergeants’ mess bar.

It’s alleged that when she was

playing pool, Boyd approached

her and squeezed her breast for

few seconds, made eye contact,

and then went away.

A second allegation came on

December 5, 2018 at another

NEWS 5

guilty of indecent assault

function in the same officers’

mess.

She was standing at a table

when Boyd is alleged

to have approached her

with a drink he bought

her.

He is said to have

congratulated her on a

recent promotion.

They consumed the

drink and Boyd allegedly

told her: “This is

my last chance to get

you wasted, corporals

are my cut off”.

Wisstt said it’s alleged that Boyd

used “force” towards the victim.

Boyd’s lawyer Elizabeth Bulger

said he denied all charges, saying

there was no assault, indecent or

otherwise.

Boyd says the allegation of indecent

assault was a “fabrication,

for reasons best known to the

complainant”.

Referring to the 2018

allegation, he says she had

“at best misinterpreted” his

comments, or even deliberately

misinterpreted the conversation

to make it sound sleazy and

crass. He had merely been trying

to offer career advice to a junior

subordinate, Bulger says. – NZ

Age Concern Canterbury chief

The city council is the latest

local authority to announce they

will no longer accept cheques –

from April 30 – in response to

the banking sector’s decision.

“This one sits squarely with

the banks, the city council has

no option,” said Templeton, who

urged affected customers to contact

their banks for assistance.

“What I’m suggesting people

do is actually push back on their

banks.

“I’m suggesting they go: ‘Well

you’ve seen my pattern of use

over the last however many years

and you know I use cheques, you

know I post these things so you

know I don’t have a computer.

provided DIAA courses through

a third party last year but they

are now dealing direct with the

Wellington-based organisation.

“We’re looking to deliver it

ourselves because it’s such a big

need,” Templeton said.

“We’re hoping to start running

those classes quite soon.”

DIAA covers 16 topics including

digital safety and security,

which hopefully offer peace of

mind.

“With a cheque they had the

time to wave it under someone’s

nose and check they’d got it

alright,” Templeton said.

“People are concerned once

they push the numbers into a

computer and push go. They go:

‘Gosh, did I get that right?’.”

Templeton said the classes

were free – technology was

provided – and invited the

elderly to phone 366-0903 to

The city council ultimately

voted to decline the amendment.

Said Dalziel during the meeting:

“Disappointingly, for me, I’ve

been told that I have to accept

this dreadful amendment.”

MacDonald replied: “It’s

healthy for democracy.”

City councillors including

Turner, Mike Davidson, Melanie

Coker, Sara Templeton, Tim

Scandrett, Anne Galloway and

Yani Johanson also voiced opposition

to the amendment at the

meeting.

The decision means the city

council’s final submission to

ECan will not include any mention

of rates increases.

Dalziel said at the meeting:

“It is frustrating that we end up

having these debates around

headlines and slogans instead of

debating the real, serious, challenging

issues that we have as a

city in the context of our regional

council’s Long Term Plan.

“Focusing on one aspect of it

[the 24.5 per cent rate increase] –

a headline story – doesn’t cut the

mustard.

“We are required to think for

the current generation, but also

for future generations as well.”

Dalziel told The Star the

amendment got in the way of

more important discussion about

specific challenges ECan’s LTP

aims to address, including nitrates

in water, ensuring compliance

with air quality and buses.

MacDonald said he feels the

amendment proposal was “shot

down” and was disappointed

with how, he believes, he was accused

of “headline grabbing.”

“In a democracy, there’s nothing

wrong with someone like me

raising valid concerns over proposals

the council are raising. To

be dismissed like that, it should

alarm, I think, a lot of ratepayers,”

he said.

“It does feel like a dictatorship,

where if you don’t comply then

you’ll be publicly embarrassed

like that and that’s not healthy for

democracy.

“What probably frustrates me

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

the most, is that when we raise

valid arguments like that around

financial discipline, that the first

response of colleagues is to call

me headline-grabbing.”

Dalziel said MacDonald was not

accused of “headline grabbing.”

She clarified what she meant by

her headline comments with The

Star, saying sometimes issues that

generate headlines are focused on

more than specific elements that

need attention.

Said Keown: “There’s quite a

strong undertone in our council

at the moment with a level of political

bullying and it’s rearing its

head on quite a regular basis now

and I think the public should be

very, very concerned that that’s

going on.

“You can disagree, that’s fine.

Especially, you can disagree with

a strong debate, but when you

just basically shut down people

and laugh at the ideas that they

put forward on behalf of their

residents, we are seriously staring

at a dictatorship.”

Dalziel completely refuted

MacDonald and Keown’s comments

and told The Star the

amendment proposal was debated

fairly.

“That is ridiculous. I don’t

have the power to dictate,” said

Dalziel.

“I don’t feel that there was any

bullying.

“I played back the debate. I

intervened twice on Aaron’s

speech. I didn’t shut him down

and I didn’t laugh. On both occasions

I intervened, the clock was

stopped so it did not affect Cr Keown’s

speaking time. His speech

went for the full three minutes

that each councillor is allocated.

“It was debated. I didn’t stop

anyone from debating the issue.”

Turner said: “I’m not aware of

any dictatorship or bullying, all I

see is democracy at play.”

Dalziel said she had not been

informed by MacDonald or

any other city councillors who

supported the amendment that

it was going to be raised at the

meeting, and this was the reason

for her frustration.

Mosque terrorist

launches fresh

legal challenge

THE MOSQUE shooter has

The gunman is serving a

sentence of life imprisonment

without parole for murdering

51 people and attempting to

murder 40 others at Al Noor

Mosque and Linwood Islamic

Centre on March 15, 2019.

He was also convicted under

He has sought a judicial

Court records show the hearing

is in chambers, which means

it will not be open to the public.

Media are, however, permitted

to attend. The records show the

gunman intends to represent

himself.

A judicial review is where a

judge is asked to review legal

action or a decision. The judge

looks at whether the way the

decision was made was in

the judge won’t usually decide

whether the decision was the

Redevelopment of Lancaster Park

• By Matt Slaughter

THE REDEVELOPMENT of

Lancaster Park’s historic site is set

to begin on Monday.

The February 22, 2011, earthquake

caused significant damage to the

former AMI Stadium, which first

opened as Lancaster Park in 1881.

The demolition of the stadium, was

completed at the end of 2019.

The first stage of the redevelopment

project is expected to take

about nine months. This will include

cleaning up the site, removing the

foundations of the demolished

stadium, ground leveling, importing

topsoil and creating the new sports

field areas from seed in spring.

This work will allow the site to be

turned into a community recreation

space, including sports fields for

winter sports such as rugby and

football, and cricket grounds for

summer use.

Former Canterbury and All Black

forward and coach Grizz Wyllie

said it is positive that sport will still

be able to be played where such a

historic ground once stood.

“Obviously, for club teams and

that to be able to play whatever sport

it is on a ground like that, which is in

pretty good condition, and it still will

be looked after [and] will be still in

good condition, it will be of awesome

benefit to all sports that are going to

be played there,” Wyllie said.

The Lancaster Park Memorial

Gates will be protected during

the works.

City council staff are finalising

the design for the repair and

restoration of the gates, which is

set to begin in spring. The Star

reported in September this could

cost $500,000.

Monitors will be installed

on the gates to check for any

movement while the stadium

foundations are removed.

A spatial plan – developed in

conjunction with community

and sporting groups – will be

used as a guide for this work.

Further development will

occur as funding becomes

available.

It is anticipated there will

noise, vibrations and dust

from heavy machinery during

the preparation works and

removal of the former stadium’s

foundations.

City council staff will

attempt to minimise the

impact of this work as much as

possible.

The decision to demolish

followed a status report showing

that recommissioning it as a

venue capable of hosting top

international rugby tests would

cost between about $255 to $275

Shoppers

closure but

• By Samantha Mythen

SHOPPERS ARE disappointed

DISGRACED former

Canterbury harness racing

trainer Mitchell Kerr has been

banned for life after being found

guilty of a range of charges based

on the the duping of owners on

both sides of

the Tasman.

The Rangiora-based

29-year-old,

who refused

to attend a

Judicial Control

Authority

For Racing

hearing in

Christchurch

last month or be interviewed by

Racing Integrity Unit investigators,

learned his fate on Tuesday.

The JCA confirmed the

penalty yesterday, with its chairman,

Justice Warwick Gendall,

describing Kerr’s actions as “seriously

corrupt”.

Kerr relinquished his training

licence to Harness Racing New

Zealand in November last year,

citing mental health grounds, as

racing authorities closed in. Police

subsequently launched their

own investigation.

Kerr was sentenced on four

charges laid by the RIU that he

sold a non-existent horse and

then charged its new owners

for expenses, oversold shares in

horses he trained, and charged

his owners insurance premiums

for non-existent policies.

There were multiple individual

victims – as many as 50

– though the precise number has

not been ascertained.

The JCA earlier heard Kerr was

a prolific gambler, who lost almost

$1 million through betting

on harness, thoroughbred and

greyhound racing with Australian

betting agency Ladbrokes in

the space of two years.

Gendall, in an 11-page judgment,

said a life ban was the

appropriate punishment.

The seriousness of Kerr’s actions

“over an extended period,

affecting multiple owners/

clients, involving very substantial

amounts of money, with

egregious, appalling breaches of

duties of faith and fiduciary obligations,

require disqualification

for life,” he said.

“He is unfit to be involved in

any way in the racing industry or

profession.”

Black Caps pace bowler Matt

Henry and All Blacks midfielder

Anton Lienert-Brown were

among the owners caught up in

Kerr’s deception.

Queensland businessman

Peter Varcoe and friend John

Beverley detailed their experience

to the hearing.

The pair paid $40,000 for a

horse in September 2019 following

Kerr’s recommendation,

named it ‘Beaver’ and were told

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Life ban for Canty harness racing driver

• By Chris Barclay

Mitchell Kerr

it would be “ready to run in 3-4

weeks”.

However, over the next nine

months Varcoe and Beverley

spent $26,175.75 in training

expenses, in spite of not being

able to obtain any information

about the horse running or even

at workouts.

By November 2020, the Australians

emailed Kerr demanding

proof of ownership, a photo

of the horse with brand neck

visible, and a copy of “insurance

papers which had expired”.

Beverley also threatened legal

action if Kerr did not meet a

seven-day deadline to produce

the documentation.

Kerr responded via email: “I’m

really upset that you both think

you don’t have a horse, this is

insane! I agree paperwork is not

a strong point but gee whiz I’m

certainly not like that,”

The horse did not exist so

Kerr sought to buy a gelding

for $25,000 from a “senior and

highly respected Canterbury

trainer” who said he could not

recommend the transaction.

Undeterred, Kerr approached

the gelding’s owner and offered

$20,000, but she would not sell

“as it was not worth that”.

Kerr eventually found an

unraced four-year-old and sent a

photo to the Australians, but he

never paid the $25,000 purchase

price.

In the judgment Kerr’s stance

as a professional trainer was

described as “breath-taking”.

“He endeavours to demean

those who he has cheated, saying

how upset they have made him

by the ‘insane’ belief they did not

have a horse. It reflects a continued

betrayal,” Gendall said.

Canterbury standardbred

breeder Don Bates, who has

devoted 50 years to the industry,

was also embroiled in the deception

when Kerr fraudulently

syndicated ownership of horses

they raced.

Bates lost several thousand

dollars and copped a backlash

from some sections of the

Canterbury harness racing community

for challenging Kerr.

“(Bates) said he has been

subject to adverse comments

. . . in a sense ostracising him,

and blaming him, he feels, for

daring to make his complaints,”

Gendall said.

“If that is correct, it is lamentable.

So as a consequence, he has

had to remove his horses to race

in Southland.”

Kerr, who amassed 87 winners

and almost $900,000 in stake

money in his three-year training

career, could not be reached for

comment on Wednesday.

Harness Racing New Zealand

chairman John Coulam was

quick to applaud the sanction.

“I think it’s a strong message.

We have to ensure we are

presenting ourselves as a sport of

integrity so we just can’t tolerate

people who have no respect for

that,” he said.

“We have made it quite clear

that we don’t have a tolerance

for people who are deliberately

cheating in the system. We can’t

tolerate cheats who are getting

financial gain.”

All about fun and friendship for women named

• By Samantha Mythen

IF YOUR name is Shirley, the

Christchurch Shirley Club is for

you.

Made up of about 40 women,

all named Shirley, the club

recently celebrated its 21st anniversary.

The club was started in 2000

by Shirley Smith and her sisterin-law,

also called Shirley Smith,

on March 4.

The two Shirleys were inspired

by the world’s first Shirley Club,

which was created in 1996 in

Perth by Shirley Brown.

Smith’s sister-in-law had seen

an article in the Australian

Woman’s Weekly about Brown

and the club, which had snowballed

across Australia, with

Shirley clubs popping up across

the country.

She then put a notice in her

local newspaper, asking any

Shirleys to come round to her

house for morning tea.

There was a great turnout and

the Christchurch Shirley Club

branch was created.

The women meet up around

four times a year; on the club’s

birthday, at Christmas and two

times in between.

For its 21st birthday, the

celebration carried on over the

entire weekend. They enjoyed

finger food at one Shirley’s home

on Friday night. On Saturday,

they enjoyed dinner at the Papanui

RSA. They took a road trip

to Akaroa on Sunday, stopping

in Little River.

Four Shirleys from the

Otago-Southland Shirley Club

– Hackett and Kennedy from

Invercargill, Campbell from

Balclutha and McIntosh from

Alexandra) also came up for the

celebrations.

Sixteen Shirleys had planned

to visit from Shirley clubs in

Australia but unfortunately

could not make it because of

Covid-19 border restrictions.

“It was a beautiful day on Sunday.

We just enjoyed the scenery

and each other’s company,”

Smith said.

There is always something to

do and talk about.”

During the club’s Christmas

events, Smith’s husband Gerald

is their token Santa Claus, all

dressed up in the red and white

regalia.

Many Canterbury club

members have attended Shirley

conventions held in Australia.

Mini Shirley conventions are

often held around New Zealand

too. At one held in Christchurch,

several years ago, the Shirleys

took photos next to Shirley

suburb signs, Shirley St signs and

by Shirley Intermediate School.

Their colours are purple

and aqua, with Shirleys often

donning accessories and outfits

in these shades for club events.

Shirley Petschick is the club

coordinator. She has travelled

around the world to Shirley

Conventions, including to Colorado

and Missouri in the United

States.

The conventions are absolutely

fantastic and a must-do

Petschick said.

“Can you imagine a room of

200 Shirleys with all the chatter.”

She has made friends from

around the world, all because of

the name Shirley.

For the members, it is all about

the fun and the fellowship.

“It is a great way to meet people,”

Smith said.

“If a Shirley comes into town,

often from Australia pre-Covid,

we would get a call and go and

meet up for coffee.”

Their motto is ‘Fun, Food and

Friendship.’

Said Smith: “We are all very

good at talking and eating.”

“We share lots of laughs

together,” Petschick said.

Shirley

The group is mostly made of

older members – the oldest current

member being 92-years-old, with

their youngest being in their 60s.

All club members are given

a number and when a member

leaves or passes away, their number

is not re-used. For example,

Shirley Smith is known as Shirley

No 2 and another Shirley Smith is

Shirley No 68.

“Our numbers are reducing

unfortunately, with our members

slowly passing away,” Smith said.

“Shirley is not a name in vogue

anymore.”

Shirley Davey died on April

8. She had been a member from

the first meeting, still serving on

the club’s committee at 88 years

young.

The name Shirley originates

from as an Old English placename,

roughly translating to

‘bright meadow.’

It was originally known as a

male name, but by 1849, it was

established as a female name as

well – used in Charlotte Bronte’s

novel, Shirley. The Christchurch

club has had one male member

named Shirley. The group has

even included a dog named

Shirley.

New members are always welcome

to join the club.

The only pre-requisite for

membership is having the name

Shirley.

CITY COUNCILLOR Phil

Mauger has been slapped with

an infringement notice and fined

$300 for fixing a flood-prone

road without permission.

Mauger has also agreed to

carry out other red zone maintenance

work at no cost to the

city council, which will cost his

business Maugers Contracting

Ltd about $15,000.

This work will include repairing

a walkway and cycleway

under the northern side of New

Brighton’s Anzac Bridge.

The city council’s regulatory

compliance unit completed an

investigation into the incident

involving Mauger and city councillor

James Daniels last July,

when a trench was dug without

authorisation on land adjacent to

Pages Rd in Bexley.

At the time, Mauger said he

was acting on complaints from

the public about the path, so he

used a digger from his business,

Maugers Contracting Ltd, to cut

an unauthorised 70m trench to

drain flooding.

He said the public had waited

long enough for the problem

to be fixed, as the flooding had

been happening since the 2010

earthquake.

However, the city council said

today the works were carried out

on Crown-owned land managed

consent.

The city council’s

compliance unit began

an investigation when

alerted to the works. As

a result of the investigation,

Cr Mauger was

issued with an infringement

notice and fined

$300,” a spokesperson

said.

The Bexley trench was not the

first time Mauger had taken matters

into his own hands.

He also repaired the

pathway under the Anzac

Bridge walkway on New

Brighton Rd about a year

ago.

The Burwood Ward city

councillor is known for

getting things done, with

or without city council

staff permission.

In February, he ordered

Megan speaks of a

• By Anna Leask

A CHRISTCHURCH woman whose

eating disorder saw her plunge to the

weight of a small child has shared her

story in a bid to highlight “crisis” levels of

illness in New Zealand.

Megan Nelis, 24, who survived anorexia

and four stints under 24-hour monitoring

as an eating disorder ward inpatient,

says she had to fight to get

the care she needed in a public

health system that is severely

under-resourced.

Service at

The Princess

Margaret

Hospital as

she battled

anorexia.

The New Zealand Herald has been looking

into eating disorders in New Zealand,

which have increased dramatically in the

last 12 months.

Patients and parents alike say there is

not nearly enough help available and have

called on the Government for

more funding and support

as they battle life-threatening

conditions like

anorexia, bulimia and

binge-eating disorder.

In total she spent

four months as an

inpatient at the

South Island Eating

Disorders Service at

The Princess Margaret

Hospital.

The service has eight

beds, reserved for the most

urgent cases – with many on

the waiting list for admission

or outpatient care.

Nelis gave an insight into

what life was like in “C Ward”, a

place many are desperate to get in

to, and countless others never want

to return.

day in the life in an eating disorders ward

“This is not a place you ever

want to find yourself in,” said

Nelis of the inpatient ward at the

hospital.

“It is not fun. It is not glamorous.

“It is hard.

“It is frustrating. It limits your

freedom.

“You are living in a bubble of

disordered eating where your

life – work, study, friends, family,

personal interests and hobbies

and greater autonomy – are dictated

by the ward staff and what

best benefits your recovery.”

Nelis said when she was first

admitted as an inpatient her

body was “wasting away”.

“My heart and other organs

were literally feeding on themselves

in order to get energy

needed to keep me alive,” she

said.

“My heart rate was 40, where it

usually lies between 60 to 80 in

healthy people, and blood results

looked appalling – I was told I

wouldn’t last much longer if I

kept going the way I was.

“I spent four months collectively

as an inpatient in the eating

disorders unit at the hospital.

admissions, with both nasogastric

tubes and the Mental Health

Act enforced on me, I spent long

under the careful eye of specialist

doctors, nurses, and accompanying

staff.”

Nelis is now recovered and

grateful she was able to get the

help she did, but is painfully

aware of the shortcomings of the

system for others.

“Our public resources and

services are limited and stretched

out doing their damn best – it’s

really time for the Government

to give the crises of eating

disordered, disordered eating,

and obesity the attention and

resourcing it deserves,” she said.

Watched.

Their sickness cannot be left to

its own devices. Their health is

far too precarious for this once

they are admitted.

They wake at 7am each day.

Mondays and Thursdays start

with a weigh-in.

Then breakfast.

“Most of the patients would eat

together in the dining room and

lounge – a nurse would eat with

you. This was called ‘supported

eating’,” said Nelis.

The radio was often put on

to fill gaps in conversation, and

lessen the tension in the room.

“You would have 30 minutes to

finish all food and drink – otherwise

a nutritional supplement

would be provided, a caloriedense

shake.”

At 9am it was morning medications

time, medical observations

and blood tests.

“Typically you would get an

echocardiogram on the activity

of the heart rate and rhythm,

lying and standing blood pressure

and temperature,” explained

Nelis.

Most had observations done on

weigh-in days only – more often

for those deemed “medically

unstable” and less for those with

“no concerns”.

Then off to the “on-campus

school” for those still attending

and “free time” for the older

patients unless they had appointments

with their care team – one

of a psychologist, psychiatrist,

social worker, occupational

therapist and nurse.

“Free time fillers would include

making use of the craft room on

the ward – although supplied

were limited due to funding –

doing jigsaws, playing cards or

games with the nurses and other

patients, reading or watching

something,” Nelis recalled.

At 10.15am it was supported

morning snack time.

“This would be the same

time every day you were there,

consisting of a food or drink item

– slice, muffin, half sandwich,

crackers and cheese, banana,

dried fruit and nut mix,” said

Nelis.

“Once again if you failed to eat

all the food in the 10 or 15 minutes

you were given, a nutritional

supplement shake was provided.

“Once per week for some

patients ‘snack exposure” would

happen. A group of older patients,

or those more along in

their recovery, would go out to a

cafe accompanied by one of the

ward’s occupational therapists

and order their morning tea offsite

instead.

“Due to lack of service funding

– this was paid for by the

patient, which was pretty hard

and testing for someone who may

really struggle with food to buy

something fearful for them.”

Then back to school or free

time until lunch.

Nelis said school was “a great

way of providing some routine

and consistency” but if you were

not a student it got “rather hard

to fill the time”.

At 12.30pm it was time for

lunch and post-meal supervision.

“As per breakfast – same rules

‘I was told I wouldn’t last much longer if I kept

the meal,” said Nelis.

“For the hour after lunch,

patients are not able to leave the

dining room, and move to the

lounge area to be supervised by

a nurse.

“Post-meals are a difficult time

for a number of eating disorder

patients and when compensatory

behaviours are easy to do – for

example purging, exercising,

self-harm.

“You were not allowed your

phone or an electronic device –

so typically the time was spent

doing jigsaw puzzles, reading,

playing cards with other patients,

or colouring in.”

The afternoon was a regimented

daily routine of free time,

another supervised snack and

visits from family or friends.

For some, a walk was allowed.

“Exercise was limited to

facilitate the weight restoration

process and address any addictive

or compensatory exercise

behaviours,” said Nelis.

Afternoons rolled into dinner,

more free time and the final

snack, same rules, same process,

same watching – of the day

before bed.

But bed was never the end of

the day for C Ward patients.

“You would be checked on

every hour by the night nursing

staff at the very least – anywhere

as frequent as 15 minutes, or on

24-hour watch if you needed the

extra monitoring and supervision,”

Nelis explained.

“It was common if you were

medically unstable or beginning

your stay to have a 3am blood

glucose finger test – if your levels

were too low, they would wake

you up to have a sandwich and

juice and not allow you back to

sleep until your levels were back

in a normal range.

much changed except young

patients had no school and leave

could be requested, and family

outings could occur.

Government to do better

Nelis appreciated every minute

of help she had received for her

disorder – but said the system

needed to do much better, for

many more people.

“Most of the patients are youth

– this is what the ward is primarily

designed to support as they have

the best chances of a full recovery,”

she said of her experience.

“Adults and repeat patients have

a harder time being admitted – or

are admitted on a limited-time

basis and subject to more strict

compliance and medical stabilisation-only

goals, for example, come

in, gain the weight, and get out.

“As an adult inpatient I fought

every week to prove that I was

worth that bed on the ward,

something I didn’t have to do as a

youth-aged patient.”

She said every person with an

eating disorder mattered and

wanted to see more resourcing and

support across the board – not just

for the worst cases.

There is a place for inpatient

treatment in recovery – but you do

not need to become an inpatient

to be validated or verified as ‘sick

enough’,” she said.

“However far along you are in

your struggles – you are worthy of

a life without an eating disorder

and the support to help you get the

re.”

THE BELFAST Netball Club

has issued a last-minute plea

for supporters to lobby the city

council for a revamp of courts

at Sheldon Park to be prioritised

in the next Long Term Plan.

Although about $1 million

has been devoted for improving

the facilities and access to the

venue, which also accommodates

the Belfast Rugby Club,

the bulk of the money will not

be available until 2027.

Club president Karen Ellis

feared the four courts will be

unusable within two years so

she was appealing for 300 people

to make submissions to the

Long Term Plan on the club’s

behalf by Sunday to hopefully

accelerate the process.

They flood in the winter

and when it’s cold they ice up

and they’re basically unusable.

They’ve got cracks in them,

they’re in a pretty appalling

condition.”

Ellis and treasurer Nikki

Martin launched their bid

to have the asphalt playing

surfaces repaired in mid-2019,

without success.

“We tried to fundraise for it,

we went to a few places to get

grants but because we don’t own

the courts we couldn’t get any

money,” Ellis said.

“We’ve been fighting for two

years to get it on the plan and now

we’ve got until the 18th (of April)

to get it fast-tracked, to get it done

within the next two years.”

Ellis had no idea how many

submissions had so far been

lodged in support, with council

staff saying they had not yet collated

the responses.

“Hopefully the council will

revamp of netball courts

Problems with the joints, bones,

muscles, and other skeletal

system components have a

range of causes depending on

your age, physical activity, sex,

and state of health.

As we grow older, we start

having joint and bone

problems, typically due to

wear and tear. The cartilage

becomes worn, ligaments

become stretched, and there is

a loss of collagen, elastin and

other essential proteins that

support our joints and bones.

And this leads to different

types of arthritis, especially

osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Another cause of joint pain that occurs as we

age is the narrowing of the arteries, limiting

blood supply to the joints and depriving them

of essential nutrients required to keep joints

healthy.

Women are more vulnerable to joint

problems post-menopause due to the loss of

the protection that oestrogen provides for

bones.

Our state of health will also determine what

happens to our joints. Those with a damaged

immune system will have an increased risk

of autoimmune diseases such as Rheumatoid

and Psoriatic arthritis.

Furthermore, environmental factors will

OPINION

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Readers react last week’s article on the latest

spat between Newstalk’s Mike Hosking and

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern

Should Mike Hosking continue

to interview Ms Ardern?

THat’s a big question. The

trouble is on both sides. Mike is

very aggressive when he doesn’t

like someone and clearly he

doesn’t like the current PM.

But on her part, she has

taken too many lessons from

Helen Clark, is unbelievably

patronising, not just to Mike but

to all listeners, and rarely gives a

straight answer.

On this basis, any more interviews

between these two are

probably pointless, but it does

leave us, as listeners, without an

answer to questions that should

be asked. – Dennys Guild

I think the reason our socalled

PM doesn’t want to front

up on the radio is because she

can’t answer the questions that

get fired at her.

Thank goodness for Mike

Hosking. – Mary Sefton

Mike Hosking is a rude, arrogant,

obnoxious, disrespectful

and argumentative personality.

This does not make for good

journalism, although it appears

a good majority of New Zealand

broadcasters think it does.

What is the point of asking the

same question multiple times

or talking over the person being

interviewed.

I totally support Jacinda

Ardern’s decision to not appear

on his show.

Why would anyone want to

waste their time with him. – B

Wallbridge

We enjoy your (Hosking) programme

but please give Jacinda

the shove. She is incapable of

answering your questions. –

Claire Lawrie

The problem with Hosking

is that he lets his own political

leanings cloud his interviews. He

is simply not objective.

It wouldn’t matter if Jacinda

found a cure for cancer he would

criticise it.

I recall Monday mornings he

would get John Key on and it

was cringe-worthy the way he

indulged Key.

Hosking is rude. He shows no

respect.

Things are never as black and

white as he paints them.

He probably doesn’t want

Jacinda on his trashy programme

because she makes

him look stupid. – Melvyn

Bonner

Hosking when as an interviewer

he shows absolutely no respect

for New Zealand’s Prime Minister.

He never lets Ardern complete

an answer or explanation, always

interrupting to give his biased

opinion regarding his so called

hard questions.

His interviews with Ardern

are a game for him to get his

brownie points by trying to rattle

her.

His open animosity and rudeness

to Ardern and her Labour

Government (voted in by a huge

majority) does not lead to good

investigative journalism, more

like Hosking boosting his own

ego.

We feel he isn’t as rude to his

National Party guests or even

other Government ministers.

This happens on a programme

that is supposed bring us

The news on Newstalk ZB

account. However, I suggest

that the toxic and biased tone of

Hoskings serves little purpose

other than maintaining ratings

as those of like mind tune in and

add their voices and/or confirm

their opinions.

The tone and bias leads to

some, including myself, to refute

the title of ‘journalist’ being applied

to this particular person. –

Chrissie Cope

I would not ever listen to Mike

Hosking. I do not like his smart,

dominating manner or personality.

As for his so-called battle

with Jacinda Ardern, does he

really think that he can push her

to say what he wants her to say?

Jacinda is an amazing woman

doing an amazingly difficult job.

She has done everything in her

power to keep us all safe in New

Zealand. We are free from Covid

because of her.

The one who lacks ‘backbone’

is Mike Hosking hiding behind

his unpleasant manner when

interviewing not only Jacinda

Ardern but others also. – Carol

Gurr

The trouble with Hosking is his

dislike of the Labour Party.

If the National Party was as

successful with Covid response

as Labour has then Hosking

would be full of praise not

continually criticising like he

continues to do now.

He also has no respect for the

prime minister. – Graham

Campbell

Yes, Barry Soper is right you

can’t have it both ways Mike

Hosking.

The question is did he treat Sir

John Key and Helen Clark with

the same respect as the current

Prime Minister. The answer is

no. – D Day

Mike Hosking is a narcissistic,

self serving excessively vain,

Trump-like individual who condemns

anything which conflicts

with his right wing ideology and

‘hubris inflated’ lifestyle.

By contrast, Jacinda Adern

is an honest, caring, intelligent

woman who doesn’t rely on

denigrating others to

enhance her own image.

– E Stokes

No don’t have her back.

I listen to Mike most days and

enjoy his programme.

When Ardern is on she doesn’t

give straight answers and I find

her elusive. Mike often puts her

on the spot and she either gives

that silly laugh or she snipes

back.

She adds nothing. Mike

runs rings around her. – Gina

Anson

I have long noticed the Hosking’s

bias against Labour.

I am glad Ardern chose not to

talk to this creep. I will not listen

to the morning radio because of

him. – Ivan Thomas

The battle between those two,

or between Hosking and the

populace at large is of no concern

to me. I stopped listening to

Newstalk ZB years ago, just to

avoid to have to listen to Hosking.

So I suppose as far as that

is concerned he should keep

talking and agitating only as long

as the listeners tune in. And that

won’t be me. – Nick Konijn

Well, you got what you wanted

Mike – attention!

Get rid of Hosking, he does not

make any sense, he has outlived

his time. – Brian Johnson

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

I understand Mike Hosking’s

frustration with the PM in that

he asks clear direct questions to

which the PM dances around

but doesn’t actually answer the

question. Yes Mike, I want her

back on your show as I find it

revealing to hear her become increasingly

uncomfortable as she

desperately wants it to be over.

One lives with the hope that she

will one day trip up and actually

answer a question. I think of the

court scene in a Few Good Men

and wait in anticipation.

On another topic in last

week’s The Star, long ago in high

school, I had two friends that

suffered with anorexia.

Hearing that there is now a

shortage of professionals to help

is heart breaking. Personal attention

may not be attainable at

the moment but is it not possible

to have small group sessions

headed up with the appropriate

professionals?

It’s a complex issue which isn’t

always about body image, but

can also be about feeling able

to control something in a world

that feels out of control.

Parents and teens need advice

and support networks now, not

in six to 18 months time, or

when there are enough professionals

trained in a few years

time.

Hopefully the Government

will bypass creating a committee

and give funding for on the

ground support now.

Schoolchildren protest

In addressing school children who had taken the day off from

learning to protest about climate, free buses and other things, Mayor

Lianne Dalziel told the children: “We are the first generation to feel

the impacts of climate change, and the last that can do something

about it.”

Really? In effect what the mayor is saying is that climate change is

something new and that prior to the arrival of this youngest generation

the climate was stable and without a worry in the world. One has

to wonder where the mayor was when class was in. There is a not skerrick

of scientific or historical truth in this statement.

What on earth is such a badly informed mayor doing sharing this

ignorance with children who many would say are better off in class

being educated? And to suggest that this latest generation ‘can do

something about’ stopping climate change is surely taking optimism

to the point of lunacy.

For the sake of the good people of Christchurch and their children,

it is to be hoped the mayor is not spreading this nonsense about the

council chamber for fear there will be some dumb decisions emanating.

It is difficult to know where one should start in educating the mayor

on these matters. History books would be a good start. – Geoff Ellis

OPINION

Dalziel column

I read the article in The Star

(April 8) by Lianne Dalziel,

‘Finding out what we have in

common’.

I live in Hornby and I feel I

have nothing in common with

anyone here in Hornby.

I’m Maori, there is no marae

here in Hornby or Wigram.

Hornby has no culture at all,

I want a marae built here in

Hornby or Wigram and then we

can come together and learn all

things Maori.

Then we will have culture

and something in common. –

Joseph Shaw

I agree with G. S. Smith’s letter

last week regarding too much

Maori language incorporated

with English.

Examples I’ve noticed are

TVNZ newsreaders, Christchurch

Hospital ward receptions. –

David Sinclair

Congratulations to G. S. Smith.

I too disagree with the endless

Maori names that are now overriding

all the English names

appearing in the newspapers and

television.

Our city is Christchurch and

our country is New Zealand. We

have not had any consultation

or referendum to change this. –

Peter Stubbings

Street, reserve

name change plan

I disagree with the person who

says that the names of two streets

and one reserve are “honouring”

the places where child abuse happened

in the past.

The names were chosen for

historical reasons and are just

words. If we go down the path of

extreme political correctness then

some people might find reasons

to advocate changing many thousands

of names in New Zealand.

By the way, I know of one street

in Christchurch named after a

convicted murderer and that

happened only eight years ago. –

Alan Tunnicliffe

After reading this in The Star,

when does it ever stop?

Now they want name changes.

For goodness sake history is

history and the things that went

on are terrible, next it will be

changing names of schools as we

got hit on our backsides and the

leather strap. – Mary Sefton

• By Kurt Bayer

A SPEEDING motor-cyclist

might narrowly have avoided

death if he’d been doing the

speed limit on a ride to Akaroa, a

coroner has concluded.

Kyle John McKitterick, 48, had

gone on a birthday ride with a

mate on Dyers Pass Rd in Governors

Bay, Canterbury on November

10, 2018, when he collided

with a turning van and died.

Police conducted inquiries into

his death before passing the file

on to Coroner Marcus Elliott.

In the coroner’s findings,

released today, a full narrative

of events leading up to McKitterick’s

death is revealed for the

first time.

The experienced rider had set

out with a friend, Tracy Durham

from Christchurch that morning

for a ride to Akaroa.

On the way back in the afternoon,

with a third, unknown

motor-cyclist riding behind

them, they were travelling

through the Governors Bay

township when tragedy struck.

As they travelled north

through a 60km/h zone, McKitterick,

on a Benelli Tornado 1130

motorcycle, accelerated.

As they went up the hill, there

was a southbound Toyota Hiace

van ahead of them, turning right

into a driveway.

McKitterick’s friend Durham

rode past the van and then it

started to turn into the driveway.

The van driver, Duncan Harvest,

later told police he “believed it

was safe to turn into the driveway”.

“As I was turning, I didn’t

think the bikes could have hit me

as I was looking up the drive,”

Harvest said.

“I don’t remember the crash

very well. I remember the car

spun slightly with what I thought

must have been the motorcyclist.”

When asked by police why he

believed it was safe to turn into

the driveway, Harvest replied:

“I thought there was enough

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Speed a factor in fatal ride – coroner rules

of a gap, because I was already

moving at a slow speed, so therefore

you have a bit of a run-up

anyway and I thought there was

enough space.”

Paramedics rushed to the

scene and took McKitterick to

hospital, where he died in the

emergency department.

Canterbury Police Senior Constable

John Isitt serious crash

unit found McKitterick was

initially travelling at a minimum

speed of between 89–95km/h

and had been between 42m and

61.5m away from the point of

impact when Harvest started

moving across his path.

“If Mr McKitterick was riding

PHOTO:

SUPPLIED

at 60km/h, and he braked at the

same location, then he would

have been able to stop in 16.87m,

well short of the impact area,”

Isitt found.

Police did not lay any charges

against Harvest in relation to the

collision.

Durham, however, carried out

some tests of his own at the scene

and questioned why Harvest

turned in front of the oncoming

motor-cycles.

Durham also highlighted the

road code, which states that if

turning right on an open road,

you must pull over to the left,

then do a right-angle turn once

there is no oncoming traffic.

Thursday April 15 2021 The Star

NEWS 25

But the police pointed out

there was insufficient room at the

location for a driver to pull over

completely to the left prior to

turning right into the driveway.

The coroner highlighted Isitt’s

calculations that, if McKitterick

had been travelling within the

speed limit, he would have been

able to stop well before the point

of collision.

“This means that, even though

Mr Harvest’s action of crossing

the road created the danger of a

collision, the danger was exacerbated

and a crash resulted due to

the speed at which Mr McKitterick

was travelling,” Elliott said.

“If he had been travelling within

the speed limit, he would have

been able to avoid this danger.”

Given the road code’s advice

around speed limits, the coroner

did not find it necessary to make

any recommendations.

But to try to reduce the

chances of deaths in similar

circumstances, he commented:

“This crash illustrates that, as

the road code states, ‘turning

can be dangerous, because it

usually means you have to cross

the path of other vehicles.’ It also

illustrates the danger associated

with driving in excess of the

speed limit.”

The coroner offered his

condolences to McKitterick’s

family.

Canty cricketers cap off record season at gala event

• By Tatiana Gibbs

CANTERBURY CRICKET

popped the final champagne

bottle of the season on Friday

night, celebrating a record

summer in which they won four

of five contested domestic titles.

Frances Mackay and Daryl

Mitchell both took home the

Players’ Player awards, as voted

by their fellow teammates. It

recognised their outstanding

individual performances

throughout the season, which was

affirmed again when both Mackay

and Mitchell took out the women’s

and men’s Player of the Year

awards for their contributions

with both bat and ball.

Mitchell cemented a debut

season of the ages for Canterbury

after making the move from

Northern Districts. He was

described as the “foundation of

success” for the men’s side. The

batting all-rounder scored 692

runs across all three formats,

including achieving his maiden

first class century for Canterbury,

as well as taking 29 wickets

throughout the season.

Captain Mackay won the

women’s Player of the Year title

for the sixth time, and added

the women’s Bowler of the Year

award to her season collection.

Mackay earned herself a White

Ferns recall this season following

her all-round efforts, scoring

665 runs and taking 34 wickets

across both formats of the game

in the domestic season.

The Canterbury Magicians

were domestic double champions,

winning the Dream11 T20

Super Smash final in dramatic

fashion, clinching victory over

the Wellington Blaze in the final

over, led by a Kate Ebrahim and

Lea Tahuhu run chase.

The women’s side secured

the double by winning the

beating the Auckland Hearts in

and that other teams are going

to really come hard for us, so we

need to make sure that we make

those same gains once again,”

Mackay said.

“Because everyone loves to

beat the Cantabs, and everyone

especially loves to beat the Cantabs

when they’ve got the trophies

locked up in their trophy cabinet.”

The Canterbury men came

close to achieving a historic first

three-peat, winning the Plunket

Shield four-day title with two

rounds to spare, and blasting to

victory over Northern Districts

in the Ford Trophy one day final

on the back of an unbroken

Henry Nicholls century.

Captain Cole McConchie

discussed Canterbury’s

momentum: “We got onto a roll

this season and I think that’s a

testament to the whole squad. We

had a squad of 25 men this season

that all stood up at different stages

… and to come away with two

titles is really pleasing.”

The men were denied a

clean sweep by the Wellington

Firebirds in the Dream11 T20

Super Smash final, who defeated

Canterbury in the final over.

“No one’s ever done the threepeat

in men’s domestic cricket,”

McConchie said.

“We’re really hungry to create

history and go after the threepeat,

and I’m sure we won’t stop

until we get there.”

Half-price entry at Quake City during school holidays

Can you believe it’s been more than

a decade since we were rocked by the

Canterbury earthquakes?

Quake City, Canterbury Museum’s

special exhibition about the earthquakes,

located at 299 Durham Street North, is a

great spot to reflect on how life changed

in the wake of the quakes.

During the school holidays the Museum

is running a half-price special on entry to

Quake City. With accompanied children

under 15 free, Quake City is a fascinating

and affordable outing for all the family.

If your children are too young to

remember the earthquakes, Quake City

is a great place to teach them about the

earthquakes that have shaped their city.

See treasures rescued from the rubble

including the spire of ChristChurch

Cathedral and the Great Bell from the

Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament.

Learn about the science behind

earthquakes, play with the liquefaction

scarecrow trail

SATURDAY APRIL 17

TO SUNDAY May 2

Awesome school holiday activity

only $10 - cash only please

Info & Maps available from the

METHVEN information hub

It’s on again in April!

Fantastic school holiday event in Methven

Every year in the April school holidays the rural mid-

Canterbury town and ski village of Methven runs the

Methven Scarecrow Trail where participants hunt for the

scarecrows, try to guess the characters they represent

and vote for their favourite scarecrow creation. There are

sponsored prizes for most correct entries and best scarecrow.

Last year this popular event had to be postponed due

to Covid Level 4 lockdown and was held in the October

holidays instead. The organizers wanted to return the 2021

Scarecrow Trail to the April holidays slot but were concerned

that the scarecrow makers may be reluctant to launch into

creative mode again so soon.

The request for expressions of interest was sent out and

the organisers decided that if there were 20 entries, half of

the usual number of 40, then it would go ahead. There was

an immediate response indicating renewed support from the

sponsors, Four Square Supermarket, Brinkley Resort, Jackson

Holmes, Philip Wareing and the Methven Community Board.

This was quickly followed by a flurry of entries from many

previous scarecrow creators and a number of enthusiastic

entries from newcomers.

Did entries reach the required 20 entries? They surely did

and entries were oversubscribed within days. The organizers

have had to limit the entries to 40 scarecrow locations to

make the Trail manageable for participants.

So it is all on for the April school holidays:

Theme: Children’s

Storybook Characters

Dates: Commencing Saturday April 17

and ending on Sunday May 2

Trail maps and Entry forms for $10 per group (cash only)

available from the iHub or Four Square Supermarket.

Proceeds from the sale of maps go to a local charity.

Put the dates in your calendars for the school holidays

in April and follow the Methven Scarecrow Trail

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Not all health supplements

are created equal

Many health supplements on the

market today are made more to a

price rather than optimum beneficial

quality. Most supplements are made

to high manufacturing standards but

the ingredients are not always the most

researched or beneficial type of nutrients.

The other big problem is the dosage of

certain nutrients. Manufactures often

include nutrients to look good on the label

but the amount is nowhere a beneficial

dosage. As an example some multi-vitamin

formulas contain only 5mg of vitamin C.

This dosage is of no benefit at all.

Another problem is the type of nutrients

used. An example is folate, the active form

of vitamin B9 as naturally found in food.

Folate has been clinically researched and

shown to be highly beneficial. However

folic acid is commonly used as B9 as it

is cheaper but it does not have the same

research and may even be harmful in

higher dosages. Potentially this also may

leave the body deficient of this important

vitamin.

This is just one example but there are

many more.

At Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy

we have been highly impressed by the

range of health supplements from the

New Zealand brand “Be Pure.” Founded

by clinical nutritionist Ben Warren, who

saw first-hand the impact of nutritional

deficiencies on patients in his Auckland

clinic. Realising there was a lack of

products using high-quality, researched

ingredients in sufficient amounts, he set

out 16 years ago to develop New Zealand’s

most effective nutritional supplements.

At Marshall’s we can confidently

recommend the Be Pure range as

exceptional health supplements. The

feedback we receive has been incredible

with many customers telling us they can

really notice the difference in their body.

The full Be Pure range is available

from us at Marshall’s Health and Natural

Therapy in New Brighton. Our natural

health advisers, naturopath and medical

herbalists are always happy to discuss

your requirements and give you more

information.

Petersgate

Counselling Centre

silver anniversary

1996-2021

Celebrating 25 years

Are your feeling stressed

With restrictions on how we can

interact with others and the uncertainty

of what may happen next, it is

understandable that Covid-19 is causing

exhaustion, frustration and fearfulness.

“This crisis within a crisis will not

disappear once people are vaccinated”,

Gray Crawford, Business Manager at

Petersgate Counselling Centre predicts.

The vaccine will stop the physical

symptoms but the virus’s mental health

tail will continue for years to come”.

Everyone reacts differently to difficult

events, but according to recent studies

over half of all New Zealanders are

currently struggling to cope with financial

insecurity, social isolation and disruption

to comfortable routines, all known risk

factors for depression and anxiety.

Unfortunately, the majority of these

people find it difficult to then take the

necessary steps to become well. If they

had a physical injury then they wouldn’t

hesitate to get medical attention. But

depression isolates people, anxiety makes

people fake being OK, grief lets people

suffer in silence believing that time will

heal and anger is always the other person’s

fault. Sometimes these changes in mental

wellbeing go undiagnosed for years,

often dismissed as just part of the normal

ageing process.

Petersgate Counselling Centre has

certainly noticed a huge increase in

people presenting for counselling with far

more complex mental health challenges.

Established in April 1996 Petersgate’s

initial focus was to provide affordable

professional counselling for the people

of west Christchurch. Today Petersgate is

one of the largest and busiest counselling

centres in Christchurch. Our 26 tertiary

trained counsellors and 24 reception

volunteers now assisting 1,200 clients

annually, totalling over 7,000 counselling

hours.

Examples are youth now resorting

to addictive behaviours such as drugs

and alcohol while also binging on social

media, the more sensationalized and

conflicting content resulting in further

distress. Elderly finding it difficult to

adjust to the new “normal”, the lack of

physical contact with others evolving

OPTIMUM HEALTH & WELLBEING

Most health supplements are manufactured

to a very high standard, however they do

not always contain the most beneficial types

of nutrients, or in sufficient amounts to offer

optimum health benefits. Manufactures

often use synthetic nutrients that have less

research than the active forms to keep

costs down. Quality health products contain

clinically researched ingredients in sufficient

amounts, as shown in research, to offer the

most beneficial results.

Clinical nutritionist Ben Warren could see

this downfall & created the BePURE brand

in N.Z. He says “If you’re giving your body

what it needs in terms of nutrients & lifestyle

factors, it can efficiently rebuild itself back

to optimal health”.

BIOAVAILABLE

Nutrient absorption made easy. We

formulate with ingredients for optimal

bio-availability, in their most active

Family connection on edge for Panthers

• By Chris Barclay

WHEN FORMER New

Zealand Warrior Corey Lawrie

introduced his boy Jayton to

rugby league on the frozen

fields of Doncaster in England’s

north as a four-year-old, he

never imagined they would play

premier grade together.

Yet that scenario unfolded last

weekend when dad answered an

SOS and his teenage son debuted

for their beloved Hornby Panthers

against Riccarton in the

opening round of the Canterbury

Rugby League premiership.

Corey reckoned he’s the lightest

second rower in the competition

at 88kg; Jayton made the

step from captaining the club’s

under-18 team, scoring a brace

on the wing during the 40-6 victory

over the Knights.

They combined on the right

edge, a security blanket for both

after they were unexpectedly

thrust into the top line-up by

Hornby coach Jed Lawrie, Corey’s

brother.

“I was quite happy to just play

Bs this year but Jed was a bit

short of second rowers. I’m 41, I

feel like 81,” Lawrie joked ahead

of a round two clash with the

Papanui Tigers.

“I did an eight-week challenge

a couple of months ago. I lost 7kg

and I can’t seem to put it back

on.”

Lawrie played four games off

the bench as a utility player for

the Warriors in 2007, before

heading to England the following

year.

He resumed his playing career

at the Panthers when he returned

home in 2009.

“I’m not embarrassing myself

yet, when that happens I’ll pull

the pin. At the moment I’m still

competing pretty well.”

Jayton, meanwhile, was rewarded

for a strong off-season.

“It’s always good to see your

son achieve something he’s been

aiming for. He’s worked hard

for the opportunity,” said Corey,

Canterbury Rugby League Premiership.

who played down his parental

guardian role.

“You always worry you’re

going to have a dust up with

someone if they rark him

(Jayton) up too much, but he can

look after himself, the kid.”

Jayton was rapt with his debut,

and said dad helped calm the

nerves.

“Having him out there helped,

he gave me a bit of ball too with

us being on the same edge.”

Jayton only had one clear

memory of starting out in

Doncaster: “All I remember is

the snow really,” he said.

While happy to make his

premier grade debut, Jayton

said the under-18s, who play

on Monday night, were still a

priority so he would have to

manage his workload.

“I might miss a few premier

games to help my body out, I still

want to help that (under-18) side

out,” he said.

Papanui defaulted to Halswell

last weekend, but Canterbury

Rugby League chief executive

Duane Fyfe believed the Tigers

would front on Saturday.

“I know they’ve got

some challenges player-numbers

wise but they’re confident they’ll

be able to put a team out,” he

said.

Corey felt for Papanui’s plight.

“That’s the state of rugby

league at the moment, everyone

is a bit light on numbers these

days. I’m playing because our

numbers were a wee bit dicey.”

Young yachtie cruises to national title

• By Chris Barclay

ALTHOUGH COVID-19 twice

scuttled his plans to represent

New Zealand overseas, talented

Optimist sailor Will Leech is

staying upbeat.

After all, the 12-year-old

Cobham Intermediate School

student and member of the

Charteris Bay Yacht Club does

have time on his side.

By becoming the South

Island’s first winner of the

Optimist National Championships

since fellow Cantabrian

Jayvee Buchanan in 2010, Leech

should have been setting sail for

Lake Garda in Italy, venue of the

world optimist championships

in June-July.

However, the global pandemic

means he will stay closer to

home in Charteris Bay on the

southern coast of Lyttelton harbour

to continue training while

playing rugby over the winter

months.

“It’s disappointing not to be

won his first Optimist national championships by a

comfortable margin in Auckland.

able to go to Italy, the world

championships will be a goal for

next season,” he said.

Leech expertly improved on

last year’s second placing in the

Open fleet with a canny display

of consistent sailing on the E

course used by the America’s

Cup and Prada Cup teams in

Auckland.

He only won one of the 12

races he contested off the Maraetai

Sailing Club headquarters

last week, but he also only had a

solitary double-digit placing, a

10th he was able to discard from

his points score.

Otherwise he never finished

outside the top-six among the

76-strong fleet throughout five

days of racing.

He finished 15 points clear of

Auckland’s Joe Leith from the

Murrays Bay Boating Club.

“What I was focusing on was

keeping consistent because

one of Dad’s mates was the OK

Dinghy world champion and he

only won one race,” Leech said,

referencing Christchurch sailor

Matt Stechmann’s triumph at

Melbourne in 2014.

“I’m been working really

hard over the last few seasons,

it’s always been a dream to win

it. I’m so stoked to beat all the

Aucklanders,” he said.

Leech, who claimed the boys

title and the overall honours,

sails a raft of different boats,

including a P Class and an F8

Foiler he built with father Dan.

“It’s super competitive at that

top level so to go up there and

actually win it is a huge achievement,”

Leech’s father said.

“It’s pretty full on, race days up

in Auckland, sometimes you’re

on the water for six hours a day.”

Each competing country

can send their top-five ranked

optimist to the global showpiece,

so Covid-19 also ruined Leech’s

plans to go to Europe last year,

where Italy withdrew their bid

before the world championships

were cancelled.

Fortunately Leech, who started

sailing at age six, is eligible to

Off-field victory now priority for Marist veteran

• By Chris Barclay

ROWAN O’GORMAN had

a win to savour when Marist

Albion avenged their Metro

Premier final loss to Lincoln

University, though the veteran

hooker has a more important

positive outcome in mind.

O’Gorman came off the bench

during the 26-18 opening round

victory at Lincoln on Saturday,

some consolation after Marist

Albion lost last season’s decider,

30-29, after they conceded a lastminute

try.

While the victory was welcome

– and edges him closer to Tala

Kele’s record of 330 games for

Marist – O’Gorman is more

interested in a win off the field as

wife Jennifer continues to battle

breast cancer.

She was diagnosed during the

Covid-19 lockdown last year, and

so far the recovery has gone to

plan.

“We had a good meeting

with the doctors last Thursday,

she’s got a mammogram in two

weeks to get the proper all clear,”

O’Gorman said.

“She’s finished chemo and

radiation, now we’re waiting for

this last bit and hopefully it’s all

done. Fingers crossed.”

O’Gorman might have faced

A 74-YEAR-OLD is set to

take to the field to represent

Canterbury at the National Touch

Championships in Christchurch,

which get under way today.

Barry Clausen is a member of

the over-55 men’s side at the tournament,

which plays out at Ngā

Puna Wai until Sunday.

Unfazed at being the oldest

player to feature, Clausen said it

was “important to just do your

best in the position you have been

selected for”.

“I don’t have a problem or think

about the age gap when playing

against younger players,” he said.

“I think the secret to my success

and fitness is setting goals and

staying motivated.

“It’s also exciting to be playing

in my hometown for the nationals,

and Ngā Puna Wai is a great

venue. Christchurch has always

enforced retirement had Jennifer’s

health deteriorated.

“If it was similar to last year

– if Jen had to do the treatment

again it would have been pretty

tough,” he said.

Jennifer was not able to watch

Marist Albion on Saturday but

one of the couple’s two boys, fiveyear-old

Noah, will be on hand

all season with the kicking tee.

O’Gorman now has 318 appearances

for the club, and is still

had a certain friendly, welcoming

vibe.”

Clausen, who still works 30

hours a week as a cleaner, played

his first touch game 23 years ago.

He was looking for a social

game, even though at the time

he did not know much about the

sport.

“I played rugby from a young

age and through the grades, along

with athletics, cross-country and

road racing, judo, masters rugby

and masters rugby league,” he

said.

“And I am still playing league.”

With more than 70 teams in

action over four days, thousands

of players - including past and

present Touch Blacks - and supporters

from across the country

will be at Ngā Puna Wai.

About 1200 touch players, the

youngest of which will be 16, will

targeting the former Canterbury

prop’s milestone.

“I’ve still got Tala is my sights,

the body’s still good,” he said.

Lincoln University, who have

won the title five times in the last

six years, were admittedly understrength

last weekend with head

coach Alex Robertson and seven

players on duty with the Crusaders

under-20s squad in Taupo.

They had a few people away,

their head coach wasn’t there as

contest the under-21, open or

masters titles.

City council recreation and

sports services manager David

Bailey said the event “puts

Christchurch in the box seat to

showcase Ngā Puna Wai and the

city’s attractions to a national

audience”.

Entry is free, and food vendors,

bouncy castles and face-painting

to entertain the younger spectators

will be available.

Teams from the masters grades

will be on the field from today

to Saturday, while the open and

under-21 sides will play from

tomorrow to Sunday.

SEASONED: Barry Clausen,

74, is the oldest player to

feature in the National

Touch Championships at

Nga Puna Wai.

WIN-WIN: Jennifer

O’Gorman is

making promising

progress battling

breast cancer, while

her husband, Marist

Albion veteran

Rowan O’Gorman,

could also savour

a season-opening

win over defending

Christchurch

Metro Premier Cup

champions Lincoln

University.

well so that all helps,” he said.

“Our boys still fronted and

played well.”

Lincoln still featured two

members of the Crusaders Super

Rugby Aotearoa squad, first

five-eighth Brett Cameron and

promising tighthead prop Fletcher

Newell; Marist Albion started

Crusaders wing Manasa Mataele.

Meanwhile, Christchurch paid

tribute to club stalwart Nigel

Mahan, who died after a heart

attack on April 1, with a 26-11

win over Burnside.

The other first round winners

were Linwood, Shirley and

New Brighton while Belfast and

Sumner played out a draw.

THE CRUSADERS can’t take

any solace from injured All

sidelined for their breakdown

battle with the Chiefs in

for a Crusaders side that

the Crusaders

still prevailed in golden

point extra time in Wellington.

Injuries have frequently conspired

against the 23-year-old

but leading into the round eight

clash at Waikato Stadium he has

played every minute of a Chiefs

campaign invigorated by three

consecutive victories since a 39-

The Crusaders would appreciate

that level of durability

Bright spot in Mitsubishi’s SUV range

I WAS PICKING up Mitsubishi’s

new Eclipse Cross from the

dealership and entered into

conversation with one of the

members from the friendly sales

team.

After being shown around the

car, I mentioned that it seemed

too soon for the mid-size sport

utility vehicle to undergo a generation

change. In reply I was told

the old model had been around

for three years and, although time

has obviously escaped me, that is

indeed correct.

To say the Eclipse Cross is

all new isn’t strictly so, there

are many elements that are

carryovers, yet the popular SUV

has had some dramatic changes

that enhance its usability and

driveability. For one, it’s bigger –

14cm longer in fact – and most of

that has gone into the rear of the

model, increasing load and rear

passenger space.

While the engine hasn’t been

altered in design, there have

been improvements to make it

quieter and more responsive. It

also drives out of a new all-corner

power proportioning system.

Well, it’s not new either, but

it is new to Eclipse Cross, see

it’s much the same system that

Mitsubishi has used in its Lancer

Evolution models and the old V6-

powered Outlander.

The Super All Wheel Control

system is advanced and can be

seen largely as a safety system,

ROOMY: The new Eclipse Cross is longer than the previous

model, most of the length has gone into the rear section.

MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE CROSS: Generation change for 2021.

it also has modes for snow and

gravel that can be selected at will

by the driver.

Of course, not all Eclipse Cross

variants have four-wheel-drive, the

four-model range starts at $35,990

for a front-drive only model,

there’s also a high-spec VRX frontdriver

at $41,990. The four-wheeldrive

range starts at $37,990 for

the XLS, the evaluation car was

the high spec VRX at $43,990, and

it is chock full of goodies.

Items such as leather trim

(heated seats front and rear),

head-up display, dual-zone climate

control, active cruise control with

speed limiter, keyless entry and ignition,

electric sunroof (dual) and

paddle-shift eight-step automatic

transmission are all fitted.

It’s fair to say the controls have

all been simplified as well, gone is

the old centre console mouse-like

device, the new Eclipse Cross has

a touch screen display which has

large icons for easy understanding

and operation.

Now at 4.5m the Eclipse Cross

has a spacious in-cabin environment;

the seats are beautifully

supportive and comfortable,

while rear seat head and leg room

is appropriate, the latter not

compromised by that healthy rear

load space area – up to 405-litres

of storage can be contained there,

stretching to 672-litres with the

rear seats folded. Bear in mind,

though, it is a five-seater only.

At the other end sits a turbocharged

four-cylinder engine of

1499cc. If you are thinking that it

would be underwhelming, you’ll

be largely surprised, and take

into account that’s the direction

Honda has gone with its CRV,

the capacity and outputs are very

similar.

The Eclipse Cross’ unit is stateof-the-art

in terms of design, and

it has healthy figures to support

that statement. Mitsubishi claims

112kW and 254Nm power outputs,

the latter realised flat across the

torque curve spreading from

2000rpm to 3500rpm. If you add

in its pairing to a continuously

variable automatic transmission,

then the ingredients are in place for

a smooth transition of power and

responsive throttle application.

Drive through the CVT is

seamless, that’s an area Mitsubishi

has long persevered with, and

that background has certainly

helped with its application mated

to a turbocharged engine, the

result is a free-flowing spread of

power, and good economy and

performance figures.

The Eclipse Cross is rated with

a combined cycle average of

7.7-litre per 100km. On a long

high-country journey I had no

problem meeting Mitsubishi’s

fuel usage claim with the readout

constantly listing at 8.2l/100km,

which was helped by a walletfriendly

6l/100km instantaneous

figure sitting at a steady 100km/h,

• Price – Mitsubishi Eclipse

Cross VRX, $43,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4545mm; width, 1805mm;

height, 1685mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1499cc, 112kW, 254Nm,

continuously variable

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

the engine loping over very relaxed

at just 1800rpm.

In terms of acceleration, the

Eclipse Cross will cut out a standstill

to 100km/h time of 9sec, and

it will power through a highway

overtake (80-120km/h) in 6.8sec,

using the paddle shifters to keep

the engine singing happily in its

peak power zone. These are all

impressive figures which would

make a buyer quite happy with

his/her purchase.

The Eclipse Cross is also rather

tidy when it comes to tackling a

tricky corner or two. I took the

evaluation car through the hilly

back roads beneath the Malvern

Hills between Sheffield and

Coalgate, those roads are partly

unsealed and I was keen to get the

feel of the SWAC system working

beneath. However, what happens

when grip is low is that all the

unseen elements kick in and the

driver is quite oblivious as to how

that system is working for you.

On seal the Eclipse Cross has

purposeful steering, the weighting

is near perfect and there is

solid communication as to how

the rubber is reacting to the road

surface. The tyres are a Toyo

brand (225/55 x 18in) and they

send strong messages through the

steering system so that the driver

is fully aware of how the entire

car is reacting under cornering

pressure. Body movement is low

and suspension control is high.

It must also be said the Eclipse

Cross moves through the air

quietly, the ride is controlled,

generating a level of comfort not

often found in a mainstream,

cost-friendly SUV.

Mitsubishi are well pleased

with their performance over the

last year or two. They have a vast

product range that hasn’t been

overly affected by supply issues

due to Covid-19.

What’s more, another high-profile,

new-generation model is due

soon – the Outlander. It and the

Eclipse Cross will dovetail nicely

in the marketplace, while sales of

the evergreen ASX continue to

tick over.

Any Mitsubishi buyer will be

pleased with the purchase, the

product is affordable and high

in quality. There is also peace of

mind, the Eclipse Cross gets a 10-

year driveline warranty.

Get your home noticed

You’ll want your home to look attractive and appealing

for potential home buyers so check out these following

tips to get your home ready for open homes...

• First impressions count: Clear away

shoes, coats and other items to make

your front entrance look clean and

welcoming.

• Create natural light: Open all curtains

and/or blinds; turn on lights for open

home days.

• Keep it clean: A clean house and well

cared for section will be far more

appealing to a buyer; get rid of cobwebs;

shine the taps; polish the windows

and doorknobs; wash and vacuum the

floors.

• De-clutter every room: This is the most

important. Clean counters, tables, coffee

tables and wall units. Clutter really

attracts the eye and takes away from the

beauty of the home.

• Kitchen/Dining: Remove all

unnecessary items; keep the benches

clean and clear; remove all used tea

towels and dishcloths; use flowers to

brighten up the dining table.

• Bathroom: We all have clutter in the

bathroom – toothbrushes, creams,

toothpaste etc. Before the potential

buyers arrive put all the clutter into a

small box, which can easily be stored

out of sight. Place clean colour coordinated

towels, neatly folded, onto the

towel rail.

• Bedroom: Use colour coordinated

bedcovers and linen; plump up your

pillows; straighten the valance; put all

clothing and person items out of sight.

• Make your room look bigger: rearrange

furniture to create more floor space.

• Move toys out of living areas: Keep

them in the rumpus room or the

children’s bedrooms.

• Check your cords, cables and wires:

Tuck and hide those cords away or

simply unplug them.

• Keep pets out of sight: Prospective

buyers don’t want pets leaping at them

or they may be even allergic to pet hair,

so keep them out of sight or away for

photography and open home days.

• Clean up your section and garage:

Keep lawns mowed, gardens weeded,

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT ACT 1991

CHRISTCHURCH DISTRICT PLAN

PROPOSED PLAN CHANGE 8

PAPAKAINGA/KAINGA NOHOANGA

ZONE – RULE AMENDMENTS

Christchurch City Council has proposed Plan Change 8 to the District Plan to

better enable use and development of Māori land in the Papakāinga/Kāinga

Nohoanga zone.

The changes proposed seek to:

a. Significantly reduce the current 15m road setback for buildings on Māori

land to 3m, or 5m where the garage directly faces the road (so cars parked in

front of the garage door will not extend onto the road).

b. Reduce the current 10m internal boundary setback for buildings on Māori

land to 2m. A recession plane is proposed to be introduced to offset the

possible visual and privacy effects on neighbours of an internal boundary

setback reduction of this extent.

c. Increase the maximum permitted site coverage of buildings on Māori

land from 35 percent to 50 percent, to allow for the possibility of multiple

buildings on communally owned land.

d. Provide a more generous earthworks allowance – the same as for residential

zones – for Māori land in the Papakāinga/Kāinga Nohoanga zone, where

sites are below 2000m2.

e. Extend the definition of Māori land (for the purposes of the Papakāinga/

Kāinga Nohoanga zone only) so that general land in the following categories

can also benefit from the zone’s Māori land rules:

i. Land where a status declaration was made under the Māori

Affairs Amendment Act 1967 converting Māori freehold

land to general title, and there have been no changes of

ownership since the conversion other than to an owner’s

bloodline successor; or

ii. Land where one or more owners are able to provide written

evidence of Whakapapa to the original grantees of the land

as confirmed by the Te Runanga o Ngāi Tahu Whakapapa

Unit or the Māori Land Court;

iii. Land which is vested in a Trust constituted pursuant to

Part 12 of Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993 or a Māori

incorporation constituted pursuant to Part 13 of the Te Ture

Whenua Māori Act 1993;

iv. Land which is owned by a Rūnanga with authority/mana

over the area in which the original Māori reserve is located.

More information

The proposed Plan Change 8 and assessments required under section 32 of

the RMA, together with any supporting documents, can be viewed at any of the

Council’s service centres or libraries or at ccc.govt.nz/planchange8

We are holding public drop-in sessions to provide more information and answer

questions about the proposed Plan Change, which you are welcome to attend.

The sessions will be held:

• 28 April 2021 5:30pm-7pm, at Little River Rugby Clubroom, Little River.

• 4 May 2021 5:30pm-7pm, at Mt Herbert Community Facility, Lyttelton.

Submissions

Anyone can make a submission on this plan change via our online form at

ccc.govt.nz/planchange8 or collect a hard copy form from our Civic Offices at

53 Hereford Street, or any of our service centres or libraries. For details of your

nearest service centre or library please visit ccc.govt.nz/contact-us or phone

03 941 8999.

Submissions must be received before 5pm on Thursday 13 May 2021.

Process for public participation

Once all submissions have been received, they will be made publicly available.

Further submissions will then be invited, allowing certain persons and

organisations to support or oppose any of the initial submissions.

A Council hearing will then be held to consider all submissions, and decisions will

be made following this hearing. Anyone who has made a submission has the right

to appeal the decision to the Environment Court.

The objectives, policies and rules proposed in this Plan Change will have no legal

effect until the Council gives public notice of its decision on the Plan Change and

matters raised in submissions or the Environment Court makes an order which

grants any rule immediate effect (RMA s86B).

If you’d like more information, please contact the City Planning Team on

941-8999 and ask to speak to, Glenda Dixon, Senior Policy Planner, about

proposed Plan Change 8 or email us at PlanChange@ccc.govt.nz.
