East starts bid to<br />

reclaim council seat<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

DAVID EAST has launched his<br />

campaign today to re-claim the<br />

Coastal Ward city council seat he<br />

lost nearly two years ago.<br />

East believed his experience as<br />

a two-term city councillor could<br />

give him an advantage over other<br />

candidates in the October byelection.<br />

“As a former elected community<br />

board member and councillor, I<br />

have the required knowledge and<br />

extensive experience which clearly<br />

no other candidate has,” he said.<br />

The start of East’s campaign<br />

comes as nominations for the<br />

$65,000 by-election, scheduled for<br />

October 8, close at noon today.<br />

The city council seat used to<br />

belong to broadcasting veteran<br />

James Daniels, who left the role<br />

last month to take up a dream job<br />

hosting NewstalkZB Afternoons<br />

with Simon Barnett.<br />

The other candidates are<br />

Coastal-Burwood chairman Kelly<br />

Barber, local business owners<br />

Andre Hopman and Caleb<br />

Isaacs, New Brighton Residents’<br />

Association chairwoman Celeste<br />

Donovan, and newcomer Katie<br />

Hays. • Turn to page 5<br />

Making the most of the bund<br />

A NEWLY finished section<br />

of bund to reduce flood risk<br />

along South Brighton estuary is<br />

proving popular with walkers<br />

and cyclists.<br />

The bund is part of a $<strong>12</strong>.5<br />

million city council works<br />

programme to address<br />

earthquake legacy issues to the<br />

estuary edge in Southshore and<br />

South New Brighton.<br />

Made of compacted aggregate,<br />

the bund is set back from the<br />

estuary edge and runs through<br />

Bridge Reserve, south of Bridge<br />

St.<br />

It is topped by an elevated twometre-wide<br />

pathway, providing<br />

pedestrians and cyclists with<br />

expansive views across the<br />

estuary.<br />

About 5600 native plants and<br />

trees have been planted, with<br />

more landscaping work to<br />

come in certain areas, once the<br />

ground has dried out a bit<br />

more.<br />

City council head of three<br />

waters and waste Helen<br />

Beaumont said the completed<br />

project is a welcome step forward<br />

for the area.<br />

“Residents have been closely<br />

involved with council in coming<br />

up with effective and workable<br />

solutions to earthquake legacy<br />

issues,” she said.<br />

working to design the section<br />

of bund from the jetty down to<br />

the boardwalk and through the<br />

residential red zone.<br />

Kids in hospital to benefit from Xmas fundraiser<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

A 14-YEAR-OLD Parklands<br />

student wants to make sure<br />

every child gets a present this<br />

Christmas, especially if they’re<br />

stuck in hospital.<br />

Emily Grocott is currently<br />

collecting donations to be given<br />

as gifts to children staying<br />

overnight at Christchurch<br />

Hospital on Christmas Eve.<br />

The Avonside Girls’ High<br />

School year 9 student is<br />

spreading the message about her<br />

Santa Sleigh fundraiser because<br />

she did not want other kids<br />

to miss out on the Christmas<br />

magic.<br />

“It’s sad for children to<br />

miss out and hear about<br />

others getting presents but<br />

they don’t get it themselves,” she<br />

said.<br />

Emily was inspired to use a<br />

Santa sleigh belonging to her<br />

dad’s boss that had been sitting<br />

around at home for several<br />

years.<br />

Her family was using it as a<br />

Christmas decoration, but the<br />

student had other ideas about<br />

how it could be used towards her<br />

cause.<br />

That was when she asked her<br />

mum for help by putting a call<br />

out on Facebook for donations,<br />

having so far received 50 items<br />

that she will gift in person.<br />

Unfinished business from previous council stints – East<br />

• From page 1<br />

Including East, all<br />

candidates are standing as<br />

independents except for Barber,<br />

who is the People’s Choice candidate.<br />

Being ousted by Daniels from<br />

his Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board and city council seat<br />

in 2019 by a few hundred votes<br />

gave him the confidence to seek<br />

re-election.<br />

He said he was approached by a<br />

number of people who were keen<br />

to see him stand again, believing<br />

there was still unfinished business<br />

from his previous stints in<br />

“I thought of it when I saw<br />

[homeless] people sitting out on<br />

the street, so I asked my mum<br />

for help,” Emily said.<br />

“It feels nice to do it and to<br />

help people out.”<br />

Gifts can include clothes,<br />

games, teddy bears, blankets and<br />

art and craft for any gender or<br />

age, but they cannot be second<br />

hand.<br />

A separate box alongside the<br />

sleigh has also been set up for<br />

people to drop food off, which<br />

Emily will make into food<br />

parcels.<br />

“You can put someone’s name<br />

and number on [the food] that<br />

you feel needs it so I can draw<br />

some names out and give them a<br />

food parcel,” she said.<br />

Collection points at businesses<br />

in the eastern suburbs will be<br />

announced on her Facebook<br />

page, “Emily Santa Sleigh,” next<br />

month.<br />

If they are wrapped, gifts<br />

need to be labelled with the<br />

appropriate age and gender<br />

so they do not have to be<br />

unwrapped.<br />

“They expressed some concern<br />

that although members of our<br />

current community board were<br />

extremely enthusiastic, they<br />

are understandably lacking institutional<br />

knowledge and experience,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Those asking me to stand<br />

again felt now more than ever,<br />

the ward required someone that<br />

had a proven track record of not<br />

being able to ask the hard questions.”<br />

If elected, East will advocate for<br />

funding to address outstanding<br />

roading and footpath repairs, to<br />

improve community engagement,<br />

addressing inefficiencies in city<br />

council spending, and adopting<br />

a community-led approach to<br />

climate change.<br />

Another priority included<br />

always being aware of the fact<br />

that there was more to the ward<br />

than solving the issues of New<br />

Brighton Mall.<br />

“The ward stretches from<br />

Southshore to Brooklands and<br />

there are numerous issues deserving<br />

attention in those places<br />

as well.”<br />

East said he has always adopted<br />

an attitude of working in collaboration<br />

with all elected members<br />

regardless of their political<br />

affiliation.<br />

Voting on issues with an<br />

approach of what is best for<br />

his community and city came<br />

first, even at the risk of “facing<br />

the occasional code of conduct”<br />

when asking the hard<br />

questions.<br />

Said East: “I am not afraid to<br />

front the community and explain<br />

my actions and decisions, as was<br />

the case when I challenge the<br />

council concerning significant<br />

anomalies in the District Plan,<br />

and the unjust impact it was<br />

having on the restoration of<br />

building rights for residents in<br />

South Brighton, South Shore and<br />

Redcliffs.”<br />

East is a proud, fourth-generation<br />

resident of the North Beach<br />

and New Brighton area, with<br />

great-grandparents, grandparents,<br />

and parents having all lived<br />

in the area.<br />

He has raised his own family<br />

in the ward and is involved<br />

with a number of organisations,<br />

including rugby and surf life<br />

saving clubs and the Wainoni<br />

Avonside Community Services<br />

Trust.<br />

Sensational service, absolutely tremendous.<br />

We so appreciate how accommodating and considerate<br />

Cam and his team have been.<br />

You have made a stressful process easy! Thank you!<br />

Close contest for gold at<br />

retirement village games<br />

MAIREHAU’S Doreen Watkins<br />

says her race for gold at the<br />

Olympics@Ryman cycling final<br />

included a tough push for the<br />

line at the end of the 13.5km<br />

race.<br />

The 71-year old Diana Isaac<br />

Retirement Village competitor,<br />

who admits she is a bit of a<br />

fitness fanatic, was chased hard<br />

by silver medal winner Sue<br />

Greet, from Halswell’s Anthony<br />

Wilding Retirement Village.<br />

A total of 104 people from<br />

31 Ryman retirement villages<br />

throughout New Zealand and<br />

Australia entered the virtual<br />

cycling event, with 18 in the<br />

women’s event.<br />

Doreen said activities and<br />

lifestyle co-ordinator Laura<br />

Richmond warned her Sue was<br />

making up ground in the final<br />

kilometres.<br />

“Laura tapped me on the<br />

shoulders and said: ‘Watch<br />

this one.’ I had just enough<br />

to put a wee spurt on,” Doreen<br />

said.<br />

The course was “hard work”,<br />

especially the changing of gears<br />

on a hill.<br />

“I remember the supporters<br />

saying: ‘Change up a gear,<br />

change up a gear’ as I was going<br />

down the hill.<br />

“I was struggling to get up a<br />

gear and I also thought I don’t<br />

know whether I can stand that<br />

pressure, if I want to have a little<br />

bit left at the end,”<br />

While Doreen had ridden a<br />

bike as a child going to school,<br />

her love of cycling awakened<br />

with a tour of the Otago Central<br />

Rail Trail in around 2004.<br />

She feels as fit as she has for a<br />

long time.<br />

Three times a week she exercises<br />

on the treadmill, backed up<br />

by a 1km swim.<br />

On other days she completes<br />

a village gym class before again<br />

stepping onto the treadmill.<br />

“I take the weekend off,” she<br />

laughed.<br />

The residents and spectators<br />

in the Christchurch village gym<br />

have witnessed some stunning<br />

cycling from the women and<br />

men, who were motivated in<br />

part by the Japanese scenery on<br />

the screen in front of them. ​<br />

Mural could be redone<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

A JUNGLE-INSPIRED mural<br />

painted by students in the late-<br />

1970s could be reimagined at<br />

Linwood’s newest pool.<br />

Created at Woolston Park<br />

pool by Linwood High School<br />

students in 1979, the mural’s<br />

recreation is currently being<br />

considered at Te Pou Toetoe:<br />

Linwood Pool ahead of its October<br />

opening.<br />

Linwood Ward city councillor<br />

Yani Johanson is keen to see it<br />

brought back to life so that the<br />

new facility can reflect a slice of<br />

the area’s history.<br />

“Woolston Pool has a significant<br />

history in terms of its place<br />

in the community,” he said.<br />

“It’s important to not lose that<br />

history, and personally I felt it<br />

was a nice way to remember and<br />

acknowledge that there’s a lot of<br />

special memories people will have.”<br />

Schools collaboration breaks<br />

barriers with performance<br />

A COLLABORATION between<br />

three high schools aims to break<br />

down barriers of what it means<br />

to be a performer.<br />

Filled with music and dance,<br />

‘Tukutuku’ was a performance<br />

put on by students with disabilities<br />

at Ferndale School, with the<br />

help of students from Avonside<br />

Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ high<br />

schools.<br />

Tukutuku is a type of Maori<br />

ornamental weaving, so the<br />

name was a fitting reference<br />

for the performance’s theme of<br />

“weaving three schools together<br />

as one.”<br />

“We are grateful to the<br />

Christchurch Symphony Orchestra<br />

and the Jolt mixed-ability<br />

dance group for helping us to<br />

achieve this,” said Ferndale<br />

School teacher Jo Allan.<br />

“The huge support from CSO<br />

and Jolt enabled the breaking<br />

down of barriers and the creation<br />

of meaningful connections<br />

for all our rangatahi [youth].”<br />

The high school students<br />

were supported by the CSO in<br />

composing two pieces of original<br />

music.<br />

JOINT EFFORT: Kaitlyn (above) and Michael (top right) of Ferndale School take to the stage<br />

with students from Shirley Boys’ and Avonside Girls’ high schools.<br />

With help from Jolt trust,<br />

which hosts dance classes for<br />

people with disabilities, the<br />

Ferndale students were then able<br />

to dance to the music crafted<br />

especially for them.<br />

The three schools have shared<br />

the same site since 2019.<br />

“Three years ago the three<br />

schools came together on the<br />

same site and didn’t know<br />

anything about each other,” said<br />

Allan.<br />

“Now, through this unique<br />

opportunity, we are celebrating<br />

diversity and inclusion and look<br />

forward to what we can create in<br />

the future.”<br />

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS<br />

Customers pleased with honest,<br />

reliable vehicle servicing<br />

Having your vehicle regularly serviced is<br />

key to getting the best out of it in terms of<br />

fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear<br />

on expensive parts.<br />

Kevin, who owns and operates Parker<br />

Automotive in Birmingham Drive,<br />

provides full vehicle servicing to keep your<br />

vehicle running smoothly, as well as WOFs,<br />

batteries and tyres.<br />

He also carries out all mechanical repairs,<br />

including cam belt replacement, suspension<br />

work, clutch and gearbox repairs, only<br />

repairing what’s necessary, and without<br />

charging the earth.<br />

He has owned the business since 2007,<br />

and over that time has established a loyal<br />

customer base – people that rely on him<br />

to give them sound advice and provide<br />

professional care and servicing for their<br />

vehicles.<br />

Customers come from across the city,<br />

Spreydon, Hillmorton, Riccarton, Halswell<br />

and Middleton areas, and the business has<br />

received many positive Google reviews<br />

from customers. Below are some examples:<br />

I have been going to Parker Automotive<br />

for the last eight years and I cannot fault the<br />

service. The mechanical work has been top<br />

notch! If you want top service and value for<br />

money I recommend Parker Automotive. –<br />

basic servicing and warrants through to<br />

major work like clutches, replacement<br />

coilovers and bushings. Kevin is a very<br />

honest guy who gets the job done in a very<br />

timely manor and he has outstanding<br />

communication. The overall service I’ve<br />

received is excellent. – Lachlan Poole<br />

I know it’s not always about price but<br />

sometimes, when it comes to vehicle repairs,<br />

you just want a perceived good deal and work<br />

carried out by someone who seems to care.<br />

Kevin came recommended by a friend, and<br />

what a great recommendation. His work was<br />

clean, efficient, fast and came in under what<br />

I thought it was going to cost. So we took my<br />

partner’s car there two days later and that<br />

too was completed faster than we expected<br />

and at an almost unbelievable cost.<br />

Give Parker Automotive a shot next<br />

time you need something done. Kevin<br />

is a nice fella too, win win. – Mark<br />

Lewis<br />

Earlier this year, Parker Automotive<br />

moved from premises on the Lincoln<br />

and Torrens roads corner to a new site<br />

at 23B Birmingham Drive, Middleton.<br />

Opening hours are Monday to<br />

Friday 7.30am-4pm, Saturday 8am-<br />

needs.<br />
