looming

over

surplus

land

SUCCESS: Burnside High School performed a piece about the negative effects of fast fashion which won the top

spot at Canterbury’s Showquest competition.

BURNSIDE HIGH School is

Showquest’s newest champion

after a strong message of fast

fashion’s detrimental impact on

the environment struck a chord

with the judges.

The town hall was a

buzz of activity last

week when teams from

Canterbury schools competed

for the top spot at New

Zealand’s biggest performing

arts competition for

schools.

In the open section, the

school took the regional

title with a meticulously

choreographed dance themed

around fast fashion, wasteful

shopping habits, and the ethics

behind underpaid garment

workers.

RESIDENTS MAY still have

time to convince the city council

to retain a piece of land for a

community space in Halswell

instead of selling it.

The city council is yet to decide

on whether it will sell land no

longer required at 66 Quaifes Rd

after it was purchased to develop

a stormwater retention and detention

basin.

A number of affordable housing

providers, including Kāinga

Ora, have already shown interest

in buying the site to develop as a

whole.

But the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board wants

at least a third of the surplus land

to remain in city council ownership

following calls to save it for

the community, such as a hall.

ADVENTURE: A youth hub in Hornby will offer a place for young people to hang out,

have fun and connect with youth workers.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

$24k grant for youth hub

A NEW YOUTH hub will offer

a safe place for young people

to meet and connect while

also providing access to youth

workers.

A $24,000 grant from the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board to the Community

Development Network

Trust will help transform the

former Plunket building in

Wycola Park into a hangout

space for after-school use.

Trust manager and Hornby

community youth worker James

Harris said the new space offers

an opportunity for young people

to come together, talk to youth

workers, play games and join in

activities.

“The hangout is a safe place

for young people to come after

school to play a game of pool

or foosball, share a scoop of

chips with friends, play some

basketball and chat with a youth

worker,” he said.

“It also will give us a base for

meetings on our teen adventure

camps, and a renewed presence

at the corner of Wycola Park.”

Community board chairman

Mike Mora said it is vital to

invest in young people living in

the community.

“A youth hub provides

invaluable connections and

opportunities to build a

stronger and united growing

community that benefits

everyone,” he said.

Youth workers will be available

at least three days a week during

the school term and the hangout

programme will operate for at

least two days each week.

The new hub is likely to open

towards the end of the year.

• From page 1

Burnside team student captain

Simone Blackie said they picked

their theme because it was

something relevant to everyone

in the audience.

“In our piece, we contrasted

our world versus the world of the

workers who are manufacturing

our clothing,” she said

“We did not expect to win. We

didn’t even think we were going

to place. It feels amazing. It feels

unreal.”

Regional competitions are

currently under way until July 6.

Teams were judged on their

overall production, performance,

movement and theme.

Rockquest Promotions general

manager Matt Ealand said the

regional Showquest competition

this year has again opened their

eyes to how talented the young

rangatahi are in New Zealand.

“We are extremely grateful

to be back with live events

this year and yet again we are

amazed by the high quality of

performances,” he said.

“The leadership and

teamwork required in building

Land sale up

for discussion

• From page 1

Halswell Residents’ Association

secretary David Hawke said the association

was comfortable with that

arrangement as the area could do

with more recreational spaces.

“If it didn’t [go through], we’d be

pretty disappointed,” he said.

“The key outcome we

want is provision for

community use.”

The city council

planned to discuss the

sale at its meeting last

week, but it has been rescheduled

to a later date.

It is now being

discussed at the community

board’s meeting

next Tuesday before it proceeds to

the city council for a decision.

The city council always intended

to subdivide the land for its stormwater

work and eventually sell the

surplus.

More land was acquired than

needed as the original owner was not

willing to sell the part that the city

council wanted to develop, therefore it

purchased the whole site.

The association saw this as an

opportunity to save the land for

residents to use before it went to the

open market.

But the community board identified

the need for more affordable

housing in Halswell as the area’s

population continues to grow, so

several housing providers were also

contacted to gauge interest.

In spite of what the association

wanted, Hawke was not against a

potential housing development

at this site as he also understood

its importance.

Kāinga Ora was not able to

confirm its intentions with the

land if it was successful.

“It’s not appropriate for us to

comment at this stage, ahead

of any council decision on the

sale of this land,” a Kāinga Ora

spokesperson said.

Halswell Ward city councillor

Anne Galloway said affordable

housing was needed, particularly

due to an ageing population and

that first-home buyers like young

families “need a place to live”.

But there was a “real opportunity”

for community involvement in

planning what this space could look

like.

“I’m keen to get a community panel

of people to work with to design

a space that is going to provide an

environment we want our families to

grow up in,” she said.

Preventative home

maintenance tips

Check your water tanks, pipes

and outside taps

Consider turning off outside taps to avoid

freezing and bursting. Covering water

tanks and pipes is a cost-effective way of

preventing this and reduces heat loss.

Consider your outdoor safety

and security

With the evenings being darker earlier,

frosts on outdoor steps, decks and pathways

are a slipping hazard.

Ensure you have adequate outdoor

lighting, a clutter free and smooth pathway

to your rubbish bins, woodpile, external

garage or sleepout.

Clean up spills immediately. Consider

moisture-absorbent mats and handrails.

Cut back your trees

With the leaves already fallen, now is a

good time to assess your trees and trim

back any dead branches and branches

overhanging your windows, spouting and

roof. Check your roof for leaks, loose nails,

and that it has a sound coating. Also look

for moss and algae.

Clear your gutters, drains and

downpipes

An accumulation of autumn leaves can

quickly block gutters, which can lead to

roof leaks, overflow and flooding. Consider

protecting your gutters from birds, hail and

leaves.

Stagnant water may freeze resulting in

gutters and downpipes coming loose or

collapsing.

Blocked drains are a potential health

hazard, create an unpleasant odour and

attracts bugs and small pests.

Store your seasonal equipment

with care

Before you put your lawnmower and

weedeater away for the season, run low or

drain the petrol. Petrol goes off and come

spring your old petrol can adversely affect

the performance of your equipment and

block up your filters.

Cover outdoor furniture and secure

items, such as trampolines, which may get

blown around in strong winds.

Consider options to extend your outdoor

living all year round.

Upgrade your home

with wall tiles

Winter is here and what better time to

accomplish some DIY home improvements

which will add value to your home.

A new easy to install waterproof wall tile

has recently arrived in New Zealand. The

Styletile brand by Dumawall is lightweight

and offers seamless joins which any

homeowner can install themselves without

the added expense of a tiler.

The decorative tile selection comes in

a range of contemporary colours that

suit a variety of interior spaces including

bathrooms and shower walls, kitchen, and

food preparation areas as well as laundry

and washdown sections. Highlight your

feature walls and large areas as these tiles

can add a whole new look and feel to your

home.

This do-it-yourself-tile is quick and

provides the look of ceramic tiles with

an interlocking tongue and groove

system which can be easily cut on site

with a handsaw, circular skillsaw or

jigsaw. Styletile is easy and doesn’t need

complicated grout lines or tools or the costs

associated with ceramic tiles.

Dumafix is a high-quality, quick

hardening adhesive suitable for fixing and

installing on any surface, whether porous

or non-porous.

It is fascinating exploring Musgroves’

recycled and new building products. This

iconic Canterbury company has been

only do they have an incredible range of

products that are amazingly well organised,

but they have also built themselves a

reputation for providing exceptional

that Musgroves has thousands of repeat

customers who come from all round

the South Island (and beyond) to find

treasures for their projects. Whether it

be to look for T&G flooring for their new

build, or for a french door for their home

renovation, or for a sliding door for their

their child’s playhouse, or for timber beams

materials to fix a leak, these are just a few

of the reasons why people come to visit

Musgroves.

There is no question that upcycling and

recycling is alive and well at Musgroves

in Wigram and once you’ve talked to any

member of the Musgroves team you soon

fad here, but rather it is in their

DNA and until you’ve paid them a

Prepare your

home for winter

Did you know that healthy trees can add

up to 20% to the value of your property?

You may not think about it

that often – but the trees on

your property are a lifetime

investment.

Carefully selected trees on your property

provide more than beauty - they increase

the value of your home. Several recent

surveys have shown that mature trees in

a well-landscaped garden can increase

the value of a house by 7 per cent to

19 per cent.

Experts indicate that a well-maintained

garden with mature trees can add

thousands to a home’s value and speed up

a house sale too.

In addition to adding significant value

at the point of sale, trees also serve very

practical and functional (as well as

aesthetic) purposes for homeowners. They

frame beautiful, relaxing, and pleasant

landscapes and help keep a house cooler

and protected from destructive winds and

weather.

Many tree care companies simply chop,

cut, and call the job done. However, after

speaking with THE TREE PEOPLE, it

quickly became apparent that they are

different. Simply put, they know your

home is your haven and will always ensure

it is treated that way.

Started by Ra and Megan Hammer in

2004, THE TREE PEOPLE knew early on

that their ethos and approach was going to

be different. They never simply chop and

cut, and instead pride themselves on the

fact that they go against the grain of how

many other arborists operate. They can

help with any tree and pride themselves on

being able to do so. They can remove large

dangerous trees safely, look after the trees

that you care about, transplant established

trees with care and offer expert advice on

all ‘things’ trees.

Speaking with passion about what he

does, chief tree hugger Ra Hammer shares,

“We had some very clear goals when we

started the business that we still ‘live by’

today. It was important to us to preserve

and maintain trees sustainably, to provide

an environment that helps our customers

to enjoy harmonious relationships with

their trees, to offer excellent affordable tree

care and to always adhere to best practice.

I am proud to say that, 16 years later, we

still live and breathe these goals”.

To remove those dangerous trees,

hard to reach over hanging branches

and to add value to your property, call

Ra, Megan and the team at THE TREE

PEOPLE today.

Prepare your

home for winter

Buy — sell — reside with

peace of mind

Any property, old or new, can have

hidden problems. It is important to know

the true condition of your current, or

potential property.

An AA House Check report can provide

you with the confidence to buy or sell with

no surprises.

Property examinations provide detailed

room by room inspections, including

roof cavity, insulation, flooring, electrical,

plumbing, drainage, hot water systems,

roofing, decks, paths and driveways,

garages, asbestos identification and more.

A BOINZ accredited building surveyor

can also carry out moisture checks,

residential foundation inspections,

earthquake damage repair assessments and

methamphetamine testing.

Serving Canterbury homeowners,

landlords and prospective home buyers for

over 15 years AA House Checks have your

house inspection needs covered.

A communal garden

that’s big enough to

feed a community.

Parkstone. The space to be yourself.

Come and see a retirement village where the communal garden is

big enough to feed the community, where a lap of the pool isn’t the

same as a width, and where the cinema is not just a big telly.

Come to Bupa Parkstone where you have the space to be yourself.

Situated in Ilam this new development is ready to move in now.

Visit our Open Home this Saturday at 10am to 12pm, and see if

Bupa Parkstone is right for you.

Call Debbs on (03) 344 1422 or 027 247 4250 to book a tour.
