Call for green arrow on traffic

lights at Hornby intersection

• By Fiona Ellis

THE DIFFICULTY of turning

right at a Hornby intersection has

driven 100 people to comment on

the issue in an online discussion.

The topic of turning from

Amyes Rd onto Shands Rd was

raised by the Greater Hornby

Residents Association in a post

on its Facebook page seeking to

gauge community opinion.

Association chairman Marc

Duff said the high level of engagement

meant the issue would be

taken further.

“Anything over 100 we consider

quite serious,” Duff said.

The association would raise the

issue at a meeting on Sunday.

Depending on the outcome,

it was then likely to be raised at

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board meeting on

Tuesday and with Hornby Ward

councillor Jimmy Chen.

“I would strongly suggest they’ll

take it forward.”

The intersection was not the

only one in the area commuters

struggled with, he said.

“The feedback is it’s part of a

wider problem.”

Fixing the problem would

take time, but the Shands Rd

intersection should take priority.

Chance to guide visitors around

gardens a privilege for volunteer

VOLUNTEERING at the

Botanic Gardens has been a

chance to branch out for

Susan Lawrence.

The Bryndwr 72-year-old

began guiding visitors at the

gardens in 2012.

Volunteer guides – all

members of the Friends of the

Botanic Gardens – run free

walks in different parts of the

Botanic Gardens each day

between October and April.

“I find being a volunteer

guide incredibly rewarding,’’

said Susan.

“It has provided me with an

opportunity to learn and grow

in my knowledge of plants. I

cringe sometimes when I think

of how little I knew at the start.’’

She led two or three walks a

month, co-ordinated the team of

volunteer guides, and served on

the committee of the Friends of

the Botanic Gardens.

“Being part of a team

is fulfilling – we are very

supportive of one another and

each one brings his or her own

skills to the task, and we learn

from each other.”

“Having the opportunity

to share our knowledge and

stories with the public is a great

privilege, whether they are

locals or tourists.

“Locals are often surprised at

how much of the gardens they

are unfamiliar with.”

Mrs Lawrence says engaging

with the public on the tours

is a two-way experience and

the guides often come away

having learned a thing or two

themselves.

“Above all it is a great

privilege to give out to others

– our lives are enriched in the

process.’’

She estimated she spent about

30 hours a month working on a

voluntary basis for the Friends

of the Botanic Gardens, which

exist to support and promote the

work of the gardens.

Funds raised provide education

and travel opportunities for

gardens’ staff, apprenticeships

and annual library grants

amongst other things.

MP says

hello

• By Fiona Ellis

ILAM MP Sarah Pallett has paid

her first visit to the Papanui-

Innes Community Board since

her election last October.

A timetable clash usually prevented

her from

attending the

board’s meetings,

she said.

Most of her

electorate lay

outside the

Sarah Pallett

board’s area.

However, she

encouraged

board members to reach out with

feedback or requests for help.

“Regard this as a hello and a

commitment to continue to work

together as much as we can.”

Community board member

Pauline Cotter said: “For community

boards, it’s very important to

have dialogues with MPs.”

Pallett first met with the main

community board in her area in

late March.

Bridget Williams said:

“She has come and presented to

us at least twice now.”

She was pleased with Pallett’s

REMOVING graffiti

from their Spreydon

neighbourhood has become

a family affair for a father

and daughter.

Ben and Nevaeh Mc-

Callum volunteered for

the Off the Wall graffiti

programme, run by the city

council, in 2017 after seeing

a brochure about it at their

local library.

Nevaeh was only seven at

the time, but Ben wanted

her to have a strong work

ethic and felt getting rid of

• From page 1

The intersection needed

a green arrow to give rightturning

traffic the chance

to flow forward, he said.

“It’s not unusual to sit

for nine, or 10, or 11

changes.”

The intersection had

been a concern for the

association since it was

formed three years ago.

“It’s only [got] a red

arrow to be used when

pedestrians are crossing”

Safety was a concern,

especially when the traffic

backed up past South

Hornby School.

City council data from

graffiti was a worthwhile

task to tackle together.

“At the time there was a

lot of graffiti along the front

of our shops so we decided

to get active with that,” Ben

said.

As part of the Off the

Wall graffiti programme,

they help paint over graffiti

in their neighbourhood.

They’re also ‘tag-spotters’,

who report graffiti to the

council when they see it. It

has been a fun experience

for Nevaeh, which has come

August 15, 2018, showed

that on that day, 12,654 cars

went through the intersection

between 7am and 6pm.

Of these, 1216 made the

right turn from Amyes Rd

onto Shands Rd.

Between January 1, 2018,

and January 1, 2021, seven

crashes occurred at the

intersection, one of which

resulted in a minor injury.

with an added bonus many

other kids will relate to.

“It gets me away from my

brother,” she said.

Ben doesn’t know many

other people in his age

group who volunteer and

worries it is a dying art.

He said more people

should give volunteering

a go.

“Definitely give it a go.

You’ve got nothing to lose.

If it’s not for you, it’s not for

you. But you won’t know

until you give it a go.”

Paulette Stickley commented

on the association’s

post, calling the intersection

a nuisance.

“Definitely turn arrows

would be great,” she said.

Gaylene Leadley also said

a turn arrow was needed.

“The lights at that

intersection need sorting

Rachel Cooper said

she found it quicker to

“It can be such a long

LIPOMAS

A Lipoma is a benign mesenchymal

tumour comprised of “mature adipocytes”

(namely fat cells). Lipomas are very

common in the dog, rarely in the cat.

Believe it or not I have several small

lipomas on my arms that cause no issue.

They are often picked up in a routine visit,

are non-painful, soft, moveable and slow

growing. Breeds at risk are the Labrador,

Retriever, Doberman, Spaniel and Beagle.

No one knows why they pop up and they

are classified into three groups –

• Simple lipoma – a benign, slow growing

mass that expands rather than invades.

They can get really huge. They are usually

encapsulated and easy to surgically shell

out. They are most commonly seen within

the fat tissue on the trunk and limbs. Very

occasionally they can be found in the

chest and abdomen. Depending on where

they are they can impede movement

causing abnormal gaits and neurological

deficits may be noticed.

• Infiltrative lipoma – These are locally

aggressive, invasive and can disrupt the

surrounding tissues. These have been

known to cause spinal cord compression.

• Myelolipoma – These are benign and can

commonly occur on the spleen, adrenal

glands and liver. We rarely see these.

Diagnosis is made by fine needle

aspiration cytology, radiographs and

ultrasound (especially of lipomas in the

thorax and abdomen or those inbetween

muscle planes). Cytology of the mass can

be done while you wait.

Most lipomas require NO specific therapy.

We usually only suggest surgical removal

if they are impeding motion or function or

in an area that irritates the dog. Surgery is

usually straight forward and it helps having

cautery for the large tumour removals as

they have a decent blood supply. Often

suction drains are inserted due to all the

dead space left and blood tends to want

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

to pool there. Complications of surgery

can be delayed wound healing, seromas

forming or occasionally nerve damage if

the lipoma is deep.

Recently we had a referral to give our

opinion on lipoma surgery for a 12 year

old Labrador called “Tess”. She’s had a

multitude of lipomas (diagnosed via

cytology) for years but some have started

growing quickly, causing her severe

mobility issues. Kirsty initially saw Tess

and thought she could make a difference

surgically to her quality of life and mobility.

One large lipoma had extended down the

right side of her chest and into her axilla

(armpit), impinging on nerves affecting

limb placement. She kept throwing this leg

outward.

Tess was a trouper under her anaesthetic

and has recovered well. The surgery took

nearly two hours and required lots of

sutures and drains to close large wounds.

Six lipoma masses were removed, the

largest weighing in at 1.6kg. She should

hopefully find it easier to walk now. Tess

was discharged on good pain medications,

weight loss diet and a recommendation

for Physio to help her mobilise quicker and

improve muscle strength. She was a gentle

old soul to treat and we hope we have

made a difference to her quality of life.

Success for teen problem-solver

Student

absorbs

pressure in

international

competition

• By Fiona Ellis

THE PRESSURE was on for

Riccarton High School student

Hugh Ryan as three-and-a-half

months of preparation boiled

down to just two vital hours.

However, the 14-yearold

pulled through to place

second in his division at the

international global issues

problem solving competition this

month.

“Everything I’d worked for

came up to that moment,” Hugh

said.

“I got quite nervous a couple of

days before the competition.”

Of the 50 competitors to take

part in the competition’s middle

individual division, he was one

of just three from New Zealand.

To qualify for the competition,

he had to do well at first

the regional, then national,

competitions.

Neurotechnology was

announced as the topic of the

competition in late February,

giving competitors time to

research the topic.

For the competition, he

then had a specific scenario to

solve – in the year 2045, brain

implants are improving life in all

kinds of ways, but not without

drawbacks.

“THere were all these side

effects that were going to be a

problem.

“My winning solution was to

use brain-scan technology to

target a specific problem.”

Normally the competition was

held in the United States, Hugh

said.

“It was online, sadly.

“I would’ve had the

opportunity to go to the

University of Massachusetts.”

Going digital came with its

own problems.

He had to re-write a part of

his answer after it vanished into

cyberspace.

However, the organisers

gave him some extra time to

compensate for the glitch, he

said.

“Overall it was fun, and really

interesting.”

Future problem solving was

a long-time interest of his, and

he had competed in the junior

division of the competition

before, he said.

He liked thinking about future

scenarios because they dealt with

important issues.

“It’s so much about the future

that will affect me and my

generation, and society as a

whole.”

After the competition,

winning results were announced

backwards.

As he learned someone else had

come sixth, then fifth, then fourth,

it seemed less and less likely that

he had placed, Hugh said.

He was pleased with his

result and was keen enter the

competition again next year.

School librarian Sally Blake

said she and teacher Jack Gibson

were forming a non-competitive

future problem solving group in

the wake of Hugh’s achievement.

“We were interested in

introducing [it] to Riccarton

High due to Hugh’s involvement

and success,” she said.

“[We are] looking forward to

putting Hugh’s exceptional skills

to work.”

THe two other New Zealand

competitors in his division,

who did not place, were James

Anthony of St Andrew’s College,

and Daniel Zheng of Westlake

Boys’ High School, Auckland.

Ryman Healthcare is bringing

together 12,500 residents across

41 villages in New Zealand and

Australia to compete in the

world’s first international retirement

village Olympic Games.

The residents will be competing

in cycling, swimming, bowls,

a 21.6km team walking relay and

Quiznastics (gymnastics for the

brain).

Back in 1956, John and other

Kiwi games athletes were invited,

and went, to social events hosted

by gracious Melburnians.

“Even if you were wandering

around outside the village, a car

would pull up and they would

say: ‘Hey you guys, we’re having

MEMORIES: John Abrams, who played at right fullback in

Canterbury and New Zealand hockey teams.

a barbie tonight, would you like

to join us?’ ” John said.

Times at the games were different

back then, and security settings

were much lower. In 1960

John was able to watch, trackside,

the performance of Kiwi

medal winners including Barry

Magee, Peter Snell and Murray

Halberg.

As well as these memories,

John and Dawn have plenty of

Olympic memorabilia on their

walls in their independent apartment

at the village.

John’s historic collection

includes photos, an Olympic

tie and an Olympic blazer from

Rome.

The items date back to the

games and more recently to

get-togethers. As Olympians he

and others were honoured by the

Christchurch High School Old

Boys with names inscribed on

a sports shirt. His shirt is now

framed and mounted on the

wall.

Both Woolston Primary

School, CBHS and later

Woolston Hockey Club were

proving grounds for John and

others. His schoolmates Noel

Hobson and Ross Gillespie (who

later coached the Kiwi 1976 gold

medal-winning team) played

together in 1960.

Provincial and national representation

followed, then John

says that he and his family had to

listen to a 6pm radio broadcast

to find if he was included in the

team for Melbourne.

The departure for Melbourne

was quite a ruckus. His father,

Dawn and young daughter,

Nicola, saw him off only to

discover the car keys (to get

home) were in John’s pocket and

on the plane. They were eventually

tossed down by the pilot to

ground level before the aircraft

took off.

In Melbourne the team finished

in sixth place just behind

Australia.

The Rome Games were longhaul

in terms of travel, with the

hockey players ending in fifth

place this time after beating Australia

in the final match.

John says the team were very

close to contending for a medal,

but lost 1-0 in a thrilling quarterfinal

against Spain. The score

could have been reversed; he

says.

“We had a penalty corner and

the ball was definitely going into

the net, and it hit one of their

defenders in the jaw and went

out,” John said.

“A few minutes after that, they

scored, and then it was fulltime.”

The team was consigned to

the sidelines. “(But) one of the

marvellous things, then and in

Rome, the competitors had a reserve

stand at the main stadium,”

John said.

John got to sit beside athletics

coach Arthur Lydiard in the

Rome stadium to see the arrival

of the marathon athletes including

Barry Magee (now a Ryman

resident at Murray Halberg) who

finished with a bronze medal.

“It was a fabulous effort,” he

said.

In Rome, he watched Peter

Snell and Murray Halberg’s gold

medal performances.

Snell, in fact, spent a lot of

time at the dining table with

the hockey team, knowing well

the Auckland team members

having played hockey against

them.

Years later John, a trained

lifesaver, found Snell cramping

in the water at Tahunanui Beach

near Nelson. He pulled him to

safety, with Snell forever grateful.

Both John and Dawn are

looking forward to the Tokyo

summer Olympics and Ryman’s

version of the games.

Vaccinations for

the rest of Aotearoa

New Zealand

The COVID-19 vaccination rollout for the general population

starts from the end of July.

Our COVID-19 vaccination programme has built momentum

steadily since February. We are vaccinating around 100,000

people a week at the moment. In the second half of the year

we hit top speed and everyone in New Zealand aged 16 and

over will be able to be vaccinated.

Moving to the general population

So far, vaccinations have been made available to those most at

risk of getting COVID-19 to limit the chances of it getting into the

wider population.

With more vaccine supply coming on, and having ramped up our

infrastructure, vaccinations for everyone else in New Zealand

aged 16 and over (the general population) start from 28 July.

This is a very large group of people. To make this flow smoothly,

we will break this down by age bands.

All people aged 60 plus can book their vaccinations from 28 July.

Then, two weeks later, people who are 55 plus. From there, new

age bands will be opened up every 2–3 weeks based on confirmed

deliveries of the vaccine and the speed of rollout to earlier groups.

By mid to late August, invitations should be open for people over

45. By mid to late September, invitations should be open for those

over 35, with everyone else being eligible from October.

Invitations

Most people will get a direct invitation to book – either by email,

text, phone call or in the post. You will then be able to book through

Book My Vaccine, a new national booking system that will be online

from 28 July, or phone a new national call centre. Availability of

booking slots (the date, time and place you can be vaccinated)

will vary between district health board (DHB) regions.

Once you are eligible to be vaccinated, you can be vaccinated

at any time. There is no cut off.

Registration

Even if your age band isn’t open, everyone aged 16 and over will

be able to go to Book My Vaccine to register for an invitation from

28 July. Registration means we will be certain to have your correct

contact details and when your age group is opened, you will get an

invitation telling you it’s your turn to book.

Getting a vaccination

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Receiving an invitation

We’ll call or send you an email, text or letter to invite

you to book.

Make your booking

From 28 July, go to Book My Vaccine or call the new

national call centre to book both doses, or to register

if your age band isn’t open yet.

Get your vaccination

Have your first vaccination dose.

3–6 weeks later have your second vaccination dose.

If you don’t hear from us, or are concerned, you can register

for your vaccination through the new national Book My Vaccine

booking system at any time from 28 July.

Important dates

28 July People 60+ Vaccinations open

11 August People 55+ Vaccinations open

Mid to late Aug People 45 + Invitations should open

Mid to late Sept People 35+ Invitations should open

October People 16+ Invitations should open

Other ways to get vaccinated

As we go through the year there will be other ways for people

to be vaccinated. These will include workplace vaccinations and

other targeted vaccination events across the country. For some

remote rural communities we will vaccinate all age groups at the

same time to make it easier for them. Our successful whānaucentred

approach to vaccinations will continue for Māori and

Pacific communities and those with disabilities.
