Proposal for community to take

over former sports complex

• By Bea Gooding

A HIGH performance sports centre

in Burnside could potentially

transform into a dedicated

community recreation facility.

The city council is currently

seeking feedback on whether

residents would like to see a

community recreation group take

over the Apollo Project Centre

behind Jellie Park.

The existing

owner, High

Performance Sport

New Zealand,

will be relocating

to Parakiore




and Sports Centre

next to Hagley

Park once it opens

next year.

Now, the city council must decide

on what should happen to the

building and determine whether it

could be retained.


Community Board chairwoman

Bridget Williams hoped to see

the centre utilised as effectively as


She hoped to see sports groups

making use of the space that

required large courts and high

ceilings, and to see the space being

hired out to the community.

POTENTIAL: High performance sports complex Apollo Project Centre next to Jellie Park could turn into a community

recreation facility.


The FINAL stage of

The renovations at Unichem Bishopdale Pharmacy

are almost finished. Over the weekend the rest

of the carpeting was put down and the outside

roofing was installed. The finishing touches are

being completed over the next few weeks.

The pharmacy will continue to remain OPEN

throughout the renovations and all products and

services are still available.

It has been wonderful to keep you updated

throughout the refit and we appreciate your

support. Stay tuned for updates.

Safe link between schools likely

• By Bea Gooding

ILAM MP Sarah Pallett’s efforts

in lobbying the Ministry of

Education to keep a safe access

way between three schools

appears to have been successful.

Since meeting with Pallett, the

ministry is now

the current one is closed.

It comes after Pallett raised the

issue at a Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

meeting last month, as the path

keeps children, pedestrians

and cyclists off the road when

moving between schools.

In its original plan, the

ministry, which owns the land,

initially did not include the path

due to the nature of the schools’

new building layout.

The schools are being

rebuilt as part of a $1.3 billion

Christchurch Schools Rebuild

Programme, involving the

rebuild or redevelopment of 115

earthquake-damaged schools.

hours, while allowing for them to

been receptive to my suggestion

that a combined funding

Readers respond to

concerns about the

effectiveness of traffic

calming trials in St Albans

I am writing with regards to

the article on page 1 and 5 in

Nor’West News last Thursday.

As stated in the article, Jo

Scott, a resident in Flockton St,

challenged the Papanui-Innes

Community Board about the

way that the traffic situation has

been “mismanaged”.

Some residents in the St

Albans area apparently

believe that the high increase of

traffic in Francis and Flockton

Sts is due to the closure of

Forfar St.

I have also heard and read on

social media that many people

believe that re-opening Forfar

St would alleviate many of the

present traffic issues.

I know that the increased

traffic from the motorway

opening may be most of the


I live in Forfar St and I am

very grateful that our street has

been closed off. Over the past

five years, before the motorway

was opened, Forfar St was the rat

runner’s street of choice.

Our street is much safer

now for children and families,

including the elderly, and a busy

childcare facility.

Traffic calming measures in

this area are in the early stages

of being worked out, due to the

increased volume of traffic from

the motorway and the changes to

the Forfar/Madras Sts roundabout.

I believe that better management

of Cranford St may help to

alleviate some of the concerns of

some of the residents in the area,

with regards to better traffic

Cranford St has been a key

city for a while, but I was very

surprised to find the city council

Also, why was Forfar

continuation of Madras St? I

can’t understand the reason

for this. There is Forfar

Nursery and Preschool. From

Said Williams: “It’s about making

use of the space as effectively

as possible. Giving back to the

community is fantastic, but it’s

about making sure this particular

facility is not going to come to

the expense of ratepayers, and if

the community organisation has

the capacity to pay for it.”

The 2300 sq m centre was

originally intended to be a

temporary building to provide

training facilities for high

performance athletes and teams

after the February 22, 2011,


If the community supports

it, a recreation group will take

full responsibility for the facility,

which includes a full-sized

indoor netball court, a strength

and conditioning gym, a 40m

running track, showers, offices

and meeting spaces.

The city council has recently

completed an initial request for

proposal process, where early

submissions were received from

interested community recreation


It could not disclose which

groups had applied as the city

council was still considering

their applications.

As determined by the Jellie

Park Management Plan, groups

could include basketball, netball,


should the Apollo Project

Centre at Jellie Park be

used for once the existing

owners relocate to another

site? Email your views to



gymnastics, cultural, accessibility

groups, or sports and fitness


Once public consultation

closes next month, submissions

will be analysed.

Potential users and an overview

of feedback will be considered

by the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board. It

will decide whether the process

should be continued.

Following this process, a

public notice with names of

interested parties will be issued

and residents will be able to

provide feedback on if they want

that particular group.

If no objections are received,

the lease will be awarded.

Residents can discuss the

project with city council staff

on Tuesday at the Apollo Centre

entrance off Ilam Rd, anytime

between 4-6pm.

With the vaccine,

it’s all possible

Our immunity against COVID-19 is incredibly important.

Because it brings more possibilities for us all.

Possibilities like keeping our way

of life intact; our kids being able

to learn without worrying about

interruptions; or being able to

plan gatherings with whānau,

or team trips away, without fear

of them getting cancelled.

Immunity can bring us all this,

as well as more certainty in our

jobs, and more confidence in our

businesses. With the strength of an

immune system made up of all of

us, together we can, and will, create

more freedom, more options, and

more possibilities for everyone.

The COVID-19 vaccine is a

triumph of modern science

Creating the COVID-19 vaccines

took a global effort. The world

united to take on the challenge,

with medical professionals and

scientists from across the planet

working thousands of hours to

bring it to us quickly and safely.

Our Pfizer vaccine works by teaching

your immune system to fight off the

virus. Once you’ve had both doses

of the vaccine it has been shown to

be up to 95% effective at stopping

you from catching COVID-19. It also

greatly reduces symptoms if you

do catch COVID-19 – making it far

less likely that you’ll fall seriously ill,

or pass it on to others.

Along with our existing actions like

scanning QR codes with Bluetooth

turned ‘on’, and staying home when

you’re sick, getting the vaccine is

the best way to protect Aotearoa

against COVID-19.

you’re in, and what you need to

Christine Maynard’s roots are in the deep South, gateway to

Fiordland, the dramatic beauty undoubtedly having an influence on

her. Self taught, she has taken her creativity to painting semi abstract

landscapes. Layering paint and working into the paint with various

tools allows suggestion of strata, erosion, flora and fauna.

Maynard says of her work “The paintings aim to reveal the essential

nature – or soul – of the landscape. There are many hidden layers

beneath the surface. These are depicted by multiple layers of texture

and colour, often revealed by scraping back the top surfaces.

Each painting shows that the landscape is inherently transient. There

may be solid rock in one area of the painting transformed to shifting

sand in another area. Or there may be a snow-capped mountain in

one area transformed to a flowing river in the other.

The paintings show this evolution in a “deconstructed” way. All

the elements of the landscape exist together in a “patchwork” of

mountain, glacier, river, field and sky. The paintings are another way

of seeing the natural environment, but with a familiarity that appeals

to our emotions . . . hidden essence . . . “

Hidden Essence is Maynard’s second solo show at Little River Gallery,

her first was very successful and served to propel her well into the art

world, her paintings have come to rest in art collections throughout

New Zealand and beyond.

Hornby’s Home of Hearing Care

When it comes to caring for your senses, you want to know you are

in good hands. So, when you, or your loved ones start to have

problems with your ears or your hearing, there is a team of

passionate professionals who will give you the very best service.

Hear Again have been delighting the Hornby community from their

bright, purpose made clinic at the Hub, for the past 4 years.

Offering everything from Ear Wax removal by gentle microsuction,

through to the fitting of the most advanced hearing aids offered by

the world’s leading manufacturers, the team are happy to help.

Neil Hardisty, NZAS

Audiometrist, has been

expertly overcoming hearing

difficulties for residents of

Christchurch since 2009. Neil

is frequently praised for his

limitless patience, wonderful

caring nature and ability to

solve problems which other

clinicians have deemed

impossible. Neil is never

satisfied until you are.

In New Zealand, one in six people have some degree of hearing

difficulty. Over the age of 60, more than half the population are

living with a significant hearing reduction. This invisible condition

can be incredibly frustrating, as conversation on a one to one basis

can be ok, but social situations become very uncomfortable indeed.

Background noise can make conversation almost impossible to

follow causing some sufferers to remove themselves from the

conversation, or even avoid going to the social function completely.

Other early signs of hearing difficulty are a creeping up of the

volume control on the TV, frequently asking family and friends to

repeat themselves, or accusing people of mumbling when they

speak. With hearing loss recently being linked to the early onset of

Dementia in studies throughout the world, these early signs are not

to be ignored. Early detection of this is paramount.

Hear Again are the highest rated hearing clinic in Christchurch,

offering FREE no obligation 30 minute initial hearing assessments.

If you, or any of your loved ones have noticed any difficulties with

your hearing, this can be quickly and professionally checked for you

at The Hub, 418 Main South Road, Hornby. If you already have

hearing aids from any manufacturer, they will give them a FREE

clean and check to ensure they are in tip top condition for you.

Wow,need help quickly, and Hear Again provided quick service. The team were very friendly and Neil

was very conscientious. Great job!

Happy to recommend. Friendly, professional service from Neil and team. Will definitely be returning

for any future requirements.

I can HEAR AGAIN ! I popped in to see Neil and his team on the way to the pharmacy to get an ear

cleaning product as it sounded like I was underwater. The Hear Again team saw me on the spot as

they had a free appointment. Ears 100% clear. Many many thanks Neil, will see (and hear) you again
