Big projects under way

to give Linwood a boost

AN IMPROVED transport hub,

upgraded park drainage, updated

library and a new $22 million

pool complex are among the

publicly-funded projects under

way in Linwood.

Linwood Ward

city councillor Yani

Johanson said it

is great to see the

long-awaited projects

in construction.

Yani

Johanson

The significant

public investment

in the area will help

contribute to improving community

wellbeing.

Johanson said that the busy

urban transport hub near the

Eastgate Shopping Centre in

Linwood will be easier to access

following an upgrade that is due

to begin next month and will be

completed in August.

New bus shelters, a signalised

pedestrian crossing and a landscaped

waiting area are part of the

improvements to make it easier to

access the Buckleys Rd bus hub by

Eastgate.

Norwich St will be made into

a cul-de-sac as part of the work

to create space for the new bus

shelters and waiting area.

Charity offers to help thieves

• By Tina Grumball

A CHARITY that salvages

food waste to feed those in

need has been broken into for

the second time this year. It

now wants to help the hungry

thieves.

Kai-ros Free Store, a charity

operating out of a container

store on St Asaph St, collects

food waste from Christchurch

cafes, supermarkets, and

growers to share with those in

need.

It was broken into in

February, and again earlier

this month. Volunteer Stu

Ennor arrived to find the

store’s door wide open and

shattered glass everywhere.

Thieves smashed several

windows, causing hundreds of

dollars of damage. They took

a new first-aid kit valued at

$180, as well as food.

Even though Ennor

reported the latest break-in

to police, he’s more worried

about the burglar than what

was taken.

“If they could make contact

with us,” he said.

“We’re not actually worried

about the window, we’re more

worried about the individual

and what’s going on in their

CHARITABLE: Stu Ennor has offered the offenders

help.

PHOTO: TINA GRUMBALL

life, and what they need help

with.”

Kai-ros Free Store has been

operating out of the container

since 2018, serving up

salvaged food every Monday,

Wednesday and Friday

evening. It also and hosts a

barbecue on Friday.

“We basically rescue food

from cafes and bring it down

here, and provide free food

resources for anyone, no

questions asked,” Ennor said.

He estimates between

70-120 people from all walks

of life turn up for each food

service.

One women at last week’s

service, who asked to be

known only as Ngahuia, said

she and her two children had

been regulars since the store

opened.

“Originally the concept was

to rescue food, that would

have been thrown out,”

Ngahuia said.

“I really liked the concept of

it, that’s why we first started

coming.”

Her eldest child is also

gluten-free, and with prices

of gluten-free food always

high, Kai-ros made “a huge

difference,” especially since

it had started collecting from

the gluten-free bakery in

Christchurch.

Ngahuia said the thief had

taken “from people who give

so much to so many.”

Another woman, Karen,

said there were “a lot of people

on the streets who needed

food. I’m surprised it hasn’t

happened more often.”

Police confirmed inquiries

into the latest incident were

ongoing.

Kai-ros Free Store is looking

to expand to meet increased

demand, and welcomes

volunteers, food, and other

donations.

their website www.

Cinema owner is looking for successor

• By Samantha Mythen

LANG MASTERS, long-time

owner of the iconic Hollywood

3 Cinema in Sumner, has turned

90 and he’s still working seven

days a week.

If you stop by for a movie, you

can see Lang with a big smile

waiting behind the counter, usually

during matinées.

On April 30, friends, family,

and work colleagues, old and

new, gathered at Masters’ home

to celebrate his birthday.

He said he is still eating the

leftovers from the three-tier film

reel cake made especially for him.

Lang has owned the cinema for

more than 60 years. Hollywood

Cinema was only open on Saturdays

when Lang and his wife

Maureen first took over in 1962.

They painted and redecorated

the 1938 building.

Only now at 90, is he considering

stepping down and is looking

for someone to take over his

share of the business.

“It would be great if that person

was interested in movies,”

said Lang.

“I would hate to see the theatre

pulled down.”

Even if it is sold. Lang said he

would still pop in if they needed

him.

“I enjoy working here – it

keeps you alive,” he said.

Although Covid has resulted

in a movie shortage, Lang said

people have continued to support

the theatre.

“It would be great to see more

visitors though.”

Lang has been running

theatres around the country

since he was a teen. He attended

Christchurch Boys’ High School

and hosted movies on 16mm

film for friends in his parent’s

garage.

In 1981, at the height of Lang

and Maureen’s cinematic empire,

they ran seven cinemas in

Christchurch.

New Linwood pool on track to open at end of year

• From page 1

“Currently bus stops are split

up along Buckleys Rd with passengers

having to run across the

road to access them and buses

parking across driveways,” Johanson

said.

“The improvements we are

making will make it easier

for bus passengers to access the

bus hub and for local residents

to get in and out of their properties.”

In addition to the transport

hub improvements, the Linwood

Library and Service Centre has

recently undergone a makeover,

with new furnishings, decor and

an improved layout to better suit

community use.

“The drainage at Linwood Park

is also being upgraded, which

will help support the champion

Linwood Keas Rugby League

Club and enable greater use of

the park in the winter,’’ Johanson

said.

“Work on Linwood’s new pool

complex is also well under way,

with the walls and roof in place,

and the pools beginning to take

shape.

The $22 million Te Pou Toetoe:

Linwood Pool – complete with

a 25m lane pool, a deep-water

splash pool, family spa, learnto-swim

pool, and a pool for

toddlers – is on track to open at

the end of this year.

Said Johanson: “By investing

in our community, we can foster

multiple benefits and support

stronger connections among people

to get better outcomes

for health, recreation, and transport.

“Many of the projects currently

under way were delayed due to

the impact of the earthquakes so

it is fantastic to finally see them

come to fruition.’’

‘A very enjoyable life’

“The hard part is making sure

you pick the right films,” he said.

“Here, we do better with arty

films not blood-thirsty action

films.”

In 2013, Lang won a New

Zealand Motion Picture Industry

Council award for service to the

industry.

The Hollywood Cinema first

opened in 1938 and has been

screening movies since then. A

second screen was added in 1976

and a third in 1999.

In 2014, the cinema won the

people’s choice award for the

best independent cinema at the

New Zealand Motion Picture

Awards.

In his home on Scarborough

Hill, Lang has his own theatre,

where friends and family visit.

Lang’s personal favourite genre

is musicals – South Pacific, the

Sound of Music, Oklahoma –

movies accompanied by a chocolate

dipped ice cream.

Lang said running theatres

with his wife Maureen has made

it a very enjoyable life.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

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

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

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

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

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

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

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

HIP PAIN

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

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment you

should know that it will work for you. Call

and only pay $50 on that treament.

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

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

Council told Clifton Beach rocks can stay

• By Samantha Mythen

THE CITY council has been told,

at present, it does not need to

remove the rocks at Clifton Beach

as the loss of amenity in the area

is minor.

However, the Redcliffs Resident

Association has been calling for

the rocks’ removal for the past

two years. The rocks are leftover

debris from roadworks.

Said residents association

secretary Pat McIntosh: “The

east end of the beach is currently

affected by large numbers of

surface rocks and there is a high

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust is a non-profit

organisation formed to protect one of New Zealand’s

most important coastal wetlands. Each week, board

members will discuss matters regarding the estuary,

its rich history and what makes it unique. This week

Tanya Jenkins writes about restoration of South New

Brighton Park

DUE TO THE earthquakes

of 10 years ago there was a lot

of damage to the South New

Brighton Park between Bridge

and Ebbtide Sts.

likelihood that other material

will again be exposed depending

on wind and sea conditions.”

In August 2020, Environment

Canterbury said the city council

was non-compliant with its resource

consent conditions for the

original roadworks, meaning the

city council is required to deal

with the rocks.

However, last month ECan told

the city council removal was not

a priority and no action is currently

required for removal, until

the rocks are exposed again and

amenity is negatively impacted.

McIntosh said the association was

Very quickly, weeds became

dominant and crowding out the

native plants. Pine trees were

Park in 2016.

very disappointed with the time it

has taken to resolve the issue.

The residents’ association has

since written to the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board asking it to request the city

council produce a plan of action

for the rocks’ removal.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton said she could understand

McIntosh’s frustration.

However, it was difficult to spend

ratepayers’ money when ECan

had said it was not necessary to

remove the rocks at this point.

The issue is set to be discussed

at the community board meeting

out the existing native plants.

With the city council needing

to think of budgets post-earthquakes,

this park and its maintenance

was, understandably, not

a priority and the park became

badly neglected.

The Estuary Trust has an active

interest in the ecology of the

estuary and its surrounds and

could see that the loss of native

habitat for birds was being compromised.

In agreement, and with approval

from the city council, the

trust established a “maintenance

group” made up by trust members

and local residents to start

repairing damage, clear weeds

and plant native trees again.

Like with our other four

restoration projects, it has been a

great success with thousands of

native trees replanted.

Said chairwoman Alexandra

Davids: “We need to be thinking

about where we are spending

money and on what issues and

by how many people are affected

by it.”

She noted members of the

community had approach the

board to say the issue was not

affecting them.

McIntosh acknowledged those

who did not think the issue was

important but said the residents

association had heard from

many more people who were

complaining about the situation.

GROWTH: After nearly five years, native plants are thriving

again at South New Brighton Park.

and other invasive weeds have

since been removed.

Locals have noticed that birds

are returning to this park and

it is once again turning into a

native area which is a joy to walk

around.

The Estuary Trust would

suggest you investigate this spectacular

park with its stunning

views over the estuary and its

abundant bird life.
