Burglaries prompt safety

warning for residents

• By Bea Gooding

OPAWA RESIDENTS are being

reminded to stay vigilant and look

out for each other in a bid to stem a

spate of burglaries.

The matter was discussed at a

Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community

Board meeting, which included

informing residents on how

to keep themselves and their homes

safe via social media.

It comes after a

31-year-old man

was arrested last

month on charges

of burglary and

assault, allegedly

Alexandra

attacking a father

and daughter while

attempting to burgle

Davids

their Fifield Tce home.

Board chairwoman Alexandra

Davids said members wanted to

support the community affected by

similar crimes that have happened

recently.

“It’s a stressful time for people,

they don’t really know what’s

around the corner,” she said.

“So we’re trying to remind the

community to stay vigilant, look out

for one another, making sure they’re

locking their homes and being a bit

more mindful that unfortunately,

this is happening.

Covid-19 vaccine hub delivers

THE CITY’S first privately-run

Covid-19 vaccination hub has

been able to deliver thousands

of jabs, thanks to a crucial

partnership.

Since a former shoe shop in

Barrington shopping centre was

converted into a clinic by Barrington

Medical Centre and Life

Pharmacy Barrington in April,

more than 11,000 people have

been vaccinated there.

The initiative stemmed from

a request from the Canterbury

District Health Board for expressions

of interest in vaccinating

the community, and a desire to

make it easier for people to get

immunised.

Said medical centre director

and GP Graham McGeoch: “We

wanted to help the community

and we felt that by organising the

vaccine hub as a joint venture

between the pharmacy and the

medical centre, we could provide

sufficient scale to be effective.”

Clinical psychologist Joel Hoo

decided to pay a visit to the clinic

because it was conveniently

located and offered evening appointments,

meaning he did not

have to fit the task into his busy

workday.

“For me, the Barrington

vaccination clinic was an ideal

location, it’s close to where I live,

parking is easy and they offer

evening time slots,” he said.

“My vaccination experience

was really positive. Staff were

friendly and approachable and

[they] communicated information

with great clarity.

“And my wait time was only

five minutes – I feel very privileged

to be living in Aotearoa,

knowing that getting the Covid

vaccine isn’t an issue.”

The vaccine hub currently

delivers about 1200 vaccinations

a week and may expand to

2000 depending on staffing and

CDHB requirements.

Pharmacy staff draw the vaccinations,

while pharmacists, GPs,

nurses and contracted staff from

the medical centre run the clinic

and administer injections.

“It’s quite a big commitment

over and above normal ‘business

as usual’ to give this many vaccinations

– over 200 a day is quite

a lot of work,” said McGeoch.

McGeoch said the effort has

been worthwhile as the feedback

from staff and clients has been

overwhelmingly positive.

“The Covid-19 Immunisation

staff and contractors are lovely,

and between us all, we have kept

In Brief

SPEED REVIEWS

Submissions are now open on

a plan to install 30km/h speed

limits on a new greenway cycle

route and in neighbouring

streets in lower Cashmere. The

city council wants to improve

safety for all road users after it

recently completed construction

of the Nor’West Arc cycleway in

the area. This includes reducing

the speed limit from 50km/h

down to 30km/h on Palmside St,

Woodbank St, Karaka Pl, Paikea

Pl, Ferniehurst St and Molesworth

St. The city council also wants to

install 30km/h speed limits in

Hoon Hay for the same reason,

including Weir Pl, Smartlea St,

Greenpark St, McBeath Ave and

Muirson Ave. To make a submission

on both speed reviews, visit

the city council’s Have Your Say

webpage by July 20.

ROAD CLOSURE

Work to upgrade the Kaiwara St

and Cashmere Rd intersection for

a new traffic calming threshold

has now started. City council contractors

have closed Kaiwara St, as

well as Mavin Rd and Blakeston

St, as part of a wider project to

upgrade the Cashmere, Worsleys

and Hoon Hay Rds intersection.

The upgrade include new drainage,

kerbs, footpaths, pavements

and landscaping. The project is

expected to be completed in two

weeks.

Students’ electronic business card takes

• By Bea Gooding

A GROUP of young enterprise

students weren’t expecting

their final year of high school

to include running a successful

business.

Since Cashmere High School

students Jayden Rosanowski,

Felix Strahl and Emilia Dybka

launched STAP Card last year,

the clientele list has grown to

include real estate agents and

police detectives.

They even won two Young

Enterprise Scheme regional excellence

awards for sustainability

and finance while developing

partnerships with universities

and billboard companies.

And the year 13 students did

it all before they even left high

school.

“It’s taken off heaps, we’re

getting interest from all over

the country. We’ve got some big

customers now, like Harcourts

real estate agents and a police

detective,” said Jayden, STAP’s

chief executive.

“It’s amazing to watch the

business take off and to be a part

of the ride,” said production

manager, Felix.

STAP Card is designed to

replace paper business cards

altogether after the students

discovered more than six million

trees are cut down each year to

produce 100 billion disposable

cards worldwide.

The reusable business

card enables employees to

electronically share their

contact details with others by

utilising QR codes and NFC

chips located inside most new

mobile phones.

All a client needed to do was

tap the card on their device or

scan the code for the information

to pop up on their screen.

In line with the company

ethos of sustainability, STAP

also partnered with non-profit

organisation One Tree Planted

by planting a tree for every card

sold.

The initiative kicked-off when

the business studies students,

who were in year 12 at the time,

unleashed their inner entrepreneur

by taking part in the Lion

Foundation Young Enterprise

Scheme.

It is a chance for young people

to experience the start-up world

by running a real business, with

products and services brought

to the market by the students

themselves.

As STAP was only meant to

be a school project, Felix said its

ongoing success was unexpected,

but keeping up with growing

demand came at a cost.

Making 100 cards in the last

six months for more than 80

companies meant investing in

a new $3500 printer funded by

company sales and part-time

jobs – another commitment to

juggle.

This sped up production

from three to four cards an

hour to 100 in four hours, and

now, it can all be done from a

dedicated office that the school

let them borrow during

business studies classes and

after hours.

“One of the coolest things was at

the start of the year we got to meet

lots of people in business at this

event, and people were using STAP

Cards,” Jayden said.

But having a flourishing business

did not excuse the STAP team from

going to class – they were still students,

after all.

“So many people are wanting

them, so the turn-around time is

one of the largest challenges and

actually creating the cards on time,”

Felix said.

“Another challenge is advertising

which we pay for ourselves. But

we’ve partnered with a media company

doing billboards, so we have

a campaign on Moorhouse Ave

promoting STAP which has 25,000

vehicle interactions each day.”

The STAP team have no plans to

slow down anytime soon having

set their sights on the international

market, particularly in Japan where

business cards are a “big part of the

culture.”

Recently they impressed a panel

of judges at Ara when pitching the

STAP Card, who were now interested

in collaborating on a student

ID and employee card version.

But before they venture further

into the business world, the

students plan to head to either

Canterbury or Lincoln University

to study commerce.

Stormwater plans open for feedback

RESIDENTS CAN now have

their say on plans to improve

the way the city council

manages stormwater at the

Heathcote River.

Consultation has opened

on both the city council’s

Heathcote and Halswell rivers

draft stormwater management

plans.

The draft plans are the

first of seven being prepared

between 2020 and 2023 for the

district’s different stormwater

Extra monitoring by community patrols

• From page 1

“There’s not a lot the council

can do, but having a platform

to be able to remind the community

to be vigilant is a great

opportunity for us.”

Additionally, several posts

made by residents in the Opawa

Neighbourhood Facebook page

stated similar incidents involving

robberies in recent weeks.

One resident feared for her

family’s safety after thieves

broke into their home while

they were sleeping, stealing

tools.

Another resident said their

child’s bike was stolen from the

property in broad daylight.

As a result, the Christchurch

which the city council will

Consent which was granted by

Environment Canterbury in

2019.

Submissions can be made

until August 30. They can be

found at https://ccc.govt.nz/

the-council/consultations-andsubmissions/haveyoursay

South Community Patrol leapt

into action as stated in a post

made by a patrol spokesperson.

“We’re always keeping an eye

out in the community groups

and have seen the recent posts.

I’ve passed on relevant information

to our patrol leader and

we will increase the number of

patrols in the area,” the comment

read.

“If anyone has any information

on the robberies in the area,

please let us know the times

they have happened as well

as the street, so we can better

target our patrols.”

Davids said Opawa was lucky

to have community patrols that

can pick up extra monitoring

work when police resources can

often be stretched.

Although she was concerned

about the type of incidents occurring

in the area, the problem was

not exclusive to Opawa, and that

they often occurred in cycles.

Said Davids: “Burglaries

and home invasions, whether

influenced by gangs or petty

crime, do seem to come in

cycles and we do see some

communities targeted from

time to time. But you see it drop

off as well when they change

their locations.

“We’re lucky to have those

community patrols that do

hover around and keep an eye

out.”

Police did not respond to

questions from Southern View,

but the board is meeting with

police in the coming weeks to

discuss community concerns,

including the burglaries, as well

as “issues around drinking in

public,” and installing security

cameras in public places.

“We’re always there to

advocate for the community and

we welcome anyone to come up

to us with their concerns, giving

us the opportunity to speak to

the right people,” Davids said.

“When people are looking out

for each other, others looking

to do something negative will

be put off knowing everyone is

banding together.”

• Ministry for Pacific Peoples – mpp.govt.nz

You can also keep up to date with current information and frequently asked questions by following

the above organisations’ social media channels, or you can speak with your health provider.

Check the source

Not all information you read or hear is factual or accurate.

Always cross-check and review COVID-19 vaccine information by using the reliable sources above.

Report scams

The COVID-19 vaccine is free. You will never be asked to pay for the vaccine or pay to secure your place

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

SOUTHERN VIEW

Customers pleased with honest,

reliable vehicle servicing

Having your vehicle regularly serviced is

key to getting the best out of it in terms of

fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear

on expensive parts.

Kevin, who owns and operates Parker

Automotive in Birmingham Drive,

provides full vehicle servicing to keep your

vehicle running smoothly, as well as WOFs,

batteries and tyres.

He also carries out all mechanical repairs,

including cam belt replacement, suspension

work, clutch and gearbox repairs, only

repairing what’s necessary, and without

charging the earth.

He has owned the business since 2007,

and over that time has established a loyal

customer base – people that rely on him

to give them sound advice and provide

professional care and servicing for their

vehicles.

Customers come from across the city,

Spreydon, Hillmorton, Riccarton, Halswell

and Middleton areas, and the business has

received many positive Google reviews

from customers. Below are some examples:

I have been going to Parker Automotive

for the last eight years and I cannot fault the

service. The mechanical work has been top

notch! If you want top service and value for

money I recommend Parker Automotive. –

basic servicing and warrants through to

major work like clutches, replacement

coilovers and bushings. Kevin is a very

honest guy who gets the job done in a very

timely manor and he has outstanding

communication. The overall service I’ve

received is excellent. – Lachlan Poole

I know it’s not always about price but

sometimes, when it comes to vehicle repairs,

you just want a perceived good deal and work

carried out by someone who seems to care.

Kevin came recommended by a friend, and

what a great recommendation. His work was

clean, efficient, fast and came in under what

I thought it was going to cost. So we took my

partner’s car there two days later and that

too was completed faster than we expected

and at an almost unbelievable cost.

Give Parker Automotive a shot next

time you need something done. Kevin

is a nice fella too, win win. – Mark

Lewis

Earlier this year, Parker Automotive

moved from premises on the Lincoln

and Torrens roads corner to a new site

at 23B Birmingham Drive, Middleton.

Opening hours are Monday to

Friday 7.30am-4pm, Saturday 8am-

12pm. So give Kevin a call on 982

4268, or pop in and he will be happy

to help with all your vehicle servicing

needs.
