crime

• By Fiona Ellis

would help to identify concerns.

“There has

been a spike with

with crime,”

Williams said.

a picture of how people felt about

the issue, especially because some

Pedestrian crossing takes effect

• By Fiona Ellis

A LONG-AWAITED pedestrian

crossing upgrade is making

the daily school run safer for

Mairehau Primary School

pupils, their principal says.

The bright red-and-white

crossing near the school is one

of two painted in Innes Rd last

month.

Principal

John Bangma

said traffic

had already

improved since

the crossing

was painted

last month

near the

school.

“It’s so visible,

you can’t not notice it. People

are already approaching it

with far more caution,” Bangma

said.

Parents told him they were also

pleased with the change, he said.

He observed the changes

before and after the colourful

crossing while helping with the

school road patrol in the mornings

and afternoons.

Before the upgrade, a basic

white-striped crossing was in

place.

“It was not that that visible

at all, especially driving in the

morning when the sun was

He sometimes voiced disapproval

to drivers who made no

attempt to slow down or stop.

“It basically wasn’t noticed at

all.”

A contributing factor to this

was also ignorance of road rules,

as some drivers did not realise

they needed to stop even if only

one road patrol “lollipop” was

out, he said.

The danger posed by the

crossing been a concern for

many years, he told Nor’West

A new red and

painted on

Innes Rd last

month is

safer on their

way to school. ​

Mairehau we unfortunately

had an incident where an elderly

lady crossing the road was

killed.”

New Zealand Transport

Agency crash analysis system

data shows there have been five

crashes recorded at the crossing

dating back to 2002 – one fatal,

one serious, one minor and two

non-injury.

Bangma was especially grateful

for the help of city council

traffic engineer Wayne Anisy

in making the new crossings a

reality.

“He’s been great.”

His only concern was the durability

of the red paint, which

was already beginning to fade

slightly, he said.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Emma Norrish

said the board had been

working on having the crossing

upgraded for more than two

years.

A second red-and-white

crossing had also been

installed at a second Innes Rd

location to benefit pupils at

the nearby St Francis of Assisi

School.

“It’s good to finally have those

in place,” Norrish said.

In Brief

COMMUNICATION ON

ROAD WORKS NEEDED

The Papanui-Innes Community

board is concerned about

inadequate communication

with the public on work being

carried out in its area. The topic

was raised in a board meeting

on Friday. Members felt it was

especially important for people to

be aware of larger projects which

involved road closures. The board

wanted to know what public

communication was for the works

that resulted in the closure of the

Tomes Rd access way until May

2022.

FEEDBACK WANTED

The city council is seeking public

feedback on Plan Change 7 until

July 28. The plan aims to protect

native vegetation while still providing

for its clearance, where it

is small scale and low impact, for

farming activities.

BUILDING DEMOLITION

The demolition of buildings at

276 and 278 Westminster St

in Mairehau are now set to be

carried out in this financial year.

A letter received at the Papanui-

Innes Community Board meeting

on Friday written by city council

chief executive Dawn Baxendale

confirmed this decision.

New community centre ‘quite echo-y’

• By Fiona Ellis

THE NEW St Albans

Community Centre has been

open since April, but users

are struggling with the sound

“bouncing around.”

St Albans Residents Association

treasurer Lynne O’Keefe said

the noise was creating problems

inside the building.

“It’s quite echo-y,” O’Keefe said.

“If you’re in one end of the hallway,

you can hear people at the

other end of the hallway.”

People using rooms in the

building could also hear the

noise in the hallway.

Some people left feedback

forms indicating noise was an issue,

but O’Keefe’s experience was

also first-hand.

“I’m probably there three times

a week.”

Residents encouraged to report crime

Replacing the existing floor tiles

It’s disconcerting that recent

silence by Canterbury’s Labour

MPs. Under the proposals,

Christchurch residents will see

$4 billion of ratepayers’ assets

being transferred to a new

bureaucratic entity, with little say

as to how these will be managed.

While some councils might

welcome the amalgamation of

their water management, others,

like Christchurch, could see fewer

benefits in paying for poorerperforming

councils.

There is a case for change in how

we manage our water across the

country but I believe there is real

risk that under this proposed

model, the voices of many of our

communities will be lost.

concerns about obtrusive noise

No one day is ever the same at McMaster

& Heap Vets. Last Wednesday night we

got an urgent call that a GSP, aptly named

“Maximus Carnage” had ingested 250g

of 50% Chocolate with 250ml cream.

Max cleverly lifted the pot of cream

and chocolate off the stove and licked

ravenously at its contents while his

humans had left the kitchen. Chocolate is

very poisonous to dogs, especially the dark

variety, so we urged Max’s owners to rush

him into us before close.

On arrival Max looked excited to be in our

waiting room, saying hello to the other

waiting patients. Kirsty was the first to

see Maximus and tried to make him sick

up the chocolate with a double dose of

medication popped into the conjunctival

sac, that is supposed to induce vomiting.

Nope! Max wasn’t giving up his chocolate

feast easily. Chocolate is slowly absorbed

from the stomach so you have about 4-6

hours to make them sick.

All that ingested chocolate could have

had dire consequences for Max, so Kirsty

quickly anaesthetised Max, stomach

tubed him to remove the chocolate and

copiously lavaged his stomach to remove

every trace. She retrieved 1/2 a bucket

of chocolate. Then she poured activated

Charcoal down his tube to help soak up

any remains of chocolate. Max was placed

on intravenous fluids to help excretion

of the methyxanthine and provide

cardiovascular support. Caffeine can be

reabsorbed across the bladder wall and

this can prolong the duration of clinical

signs so fluids and frequent urinations are

highly recommended. Max was closely

monitored until he was awake and then

sent to the After Hours clinic for overnight

care.

Chocolate is directly toxic to dogs as it

contains methylxanthines - in particular

Theobromine and Caffeine. Initially dogs

may vomit, drink lots, start tremoring and

become restless and agitated. As toxicosis

progresses their hearts rate quickens,

blood pressure elevates,

they become hot, rigid

and may start to seizure.

Sometimes they can just

die from toxic levels. Other

toxic products with the

methylxanthines are cocoa

and coffee beans, diet

pills, cold medications,

Guarana, stimulant pills,

tea leaves, energy drinks

and coffee.

Shed which is where it all began for the Ray White family and

business.

Ray White, was a young man in his 20s when he set up his

trading business in Crows Nest, rural Queensland in 1902. It

was a humble beginning in an old shed on a railway siding in

the smallest of country towns. The company has now grown

to be one of the largest Real estate company’s in Australasia.

“Incorporating the Ray White Shed in our office is special to

the team as it represents the core values that the team shares

with the Ray White group. We are very proud to be part of a

company that has such strong family values.” Says Barry Ellis.

The Shed is used to host auctions, training, seminars ,client

evenings and is also available for community groups to book.

During the opening, Dan White, Managing Director of the

Ray White Group, said “It gives us an absolute buzz to know

that the shed has been re-created in the wonderful city of

Christchurch”.

On behalf of the whole team from Ray White Bishopdale &

Strowan, Karen Ellis said “we are honoured to be able to link

our office back to such a special part of Ray White’s history

and are proud to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to

supporting the North West community.

Ray White Bishopdale is located at 5/333 Harewood Road

(opposite the Tavern Harewood) and Ray White Strowan at

55 Blighs Road. The team would love to help you in your next

property chapter so pop in see them or call 0800 Yellow to

book an appointment.
