East starts bid to

reclaim council seat

• By Bea Gooding

DAVID EAST has launched his

campaign today to re-claim the

Coastal Ward city council seat he

lost nearly two years ago.

East believed his experience as

a two-term city councillor could

give him an advantage over other

candidates in the October byelection.

“As a former elected community

board member and councillor, I

have the required knowledge and

extensive experience which clearly

no other candidate has,” he said.

The start of East’s campaign

comes as nominations for the

$65,000 by-election, scheduled for

October 8, close at noon today.

The city council seat used to

belong to broadcasting veteran

James Daniels, who left the role

last month to take up a dream job

hosting NewstalkZB Afternoons

with Simon Barnett.

The other candidates are

Coastal-Burwood chairman Kelly

Barber, local business owners

Andre Hopman and Caleb

Isaacs, New Brighton Residents’

Association chairwoman Celeste

Donovan, and newcomer Katie

Hays. • Turn to page 5

Making the most of the bund

A NEWLY finished section

of bund to reduce flood risk

along South Brighton estuary is

proving popular with walkers

and cyclists.

The bund is part of a $12.5

million city council works

programme to address

earthquake legacy issues to the

estuary edge in Southshore and

South New Brighton.

Made of compacted aggregate,

the bund is set back from the

estuary edge and runs through

Bridge Reserve, south of Bridge

St.

It is topped by an elevated twometre-wide

pathway, providing

pedestrians and cyclists with

expansive views across the

estuary.

About 5600 native plants and

trees have been planted, with

more landscaping work to

come in certain areas, once the

ground has dried out a bit

more.

City council head of three

waters and waste Helen

Beaumont said the completed

project is a welcome step forward

for the area.

“Residents have been closely

involved with council in coming

up with effective and workable

solutions to earthquake legacy

issues,” she said.

Kids in hospital to benefit from Xmas fundraiser

• By Bea Gooding

A 14-YEAR-OLD Parklands

student wants to make sure

every child gets a present this

Christmas, especially if they’re

stuck in hospital.

Emily Grocott is currently

collecting donations to be given

as gifts to children staying

overnight at Christchurch

Hospital on Christmas Eve.

The Avonside Girls’ High

School year 9 student is

spreading the message about her

Santa Sleigh fundraiser because

she did not want other kids

to miss out on the Christmas

magic.

“It’s sad for children to

miss out and hear about

others getting presents but

they don’t get it themselves,” she

said.

Emily was inspired to use a

Santa sleigh belonging to her

dad’s boss that had been sitting

around at home for several

years.

Her family was using it as a

Christmas decoration, but the

student had other ideas about

how it could be used towards her

cause.

That was when she asked her

mum for help by putting a call

out on Facebook for donations,

having so far received 50 items

that she will gift in person.

Unfinished business from previous council stints – East

• From page 1

Including East, all

candidates are standing as

independents except for Barber,

who is the People’s Choice candidate.

Being ousted by Daniels from

his Coastal-Burwood Community

Board and city council seat

in 2019 by a few hundred votes

gave him the confidence to seek

re-election.

He said he was approached by a

number of people who were keen

to see him stand again, believing

there was still unfinished business

from his previous stints in

“I thought of it when I saw

[homeless] people sitting out on

the street, so I asked my mum

for help,” Emily said.

“It feels nice to do it and to

help people out.”

Gifts can include clothes,

games, teddy bears, blankets and

art and craft for any gender or

age, but they cannot be second

hand.

A separate box alongside the

sleigh has also been set up for

people to drop food off, which

Emily will make into food

parcels.

“You can put someone’s name

and number on [the food] that

you feel needs it so I can draw

some names out and give them a

food parcel,” she said.

Collection points at businesses

in the eastern suburbs will be

announced on her Facebook

page, “Emily Santa Sleigh,” next

month.

If they are wrapped, gifts

need to be labelled with the

appropriate age and gender

so they do not have to be

unwrapped.

local government.

“They expressed some concern

that although members of our

current community board were

extremely enthusiastic, they

are understandably lacking institutional

knowledge and experience,”

he said.

“Those asking me to stand

again felt now more than ever,

the ward required someone that

had a proven track record of not

being able to ask the hard questions.”

If elected, East will advocate for

funding to address outstanding

roading and footpath repairs, to

improve community engagement,

addressing inefficiencies in city

council spending, and adopting

a community-led approach to

climate change.

Another priority included

always being aware of the fact

that there was more to the ward

than solving the issues of New

Brighton Mall.

“The ward stretches from

Southshore to Brooklands and

there are numerous issues deserving

attention in those places

as well.”

East said he has always adopted

an attitude of working in collaboration

with all elected members

regardless of their political

affiliation.

Voting on issues with an

approach of what is best for

his community and city came

first, even at the risk of “facing

the occasional code of conduct”

when asking the hard

questions.

Said East: “I am not afraid to

front the community and explain

my actions and decisions, as was

the case when I challenge the

council concerning significant

anomalies in the District Plan,

and the unjust impact it was

having on the restoration of

building rights for residents in

South Brighton, South Shore and

Redcliffs.”

East is a proud, fourth-generation

resident of the North Beach

and New Brighton area, with

great-grandparents, grandparents,

and parents having all lived

in the area.

He has raised his own family

in the ward and is involved

with a number of organisations,

including rugby and surf life

saving clubs and the Wainoni

Avonside Community Services

Trust.

Sensational service, absolutely tremendous.

We so appreciate how accommodating and considerate

Cam and his team have been.

You have made a stressful process easy! Thank you!

Close contest for gold at

retirement village games

MAIREHAU’S Doreen Watkins

says her race for gold at the

Olympics@Ryman cycling final

included a tough push for the

line at the end of the 13.5km

race.

The 71-year old Diana Isaac

Retirement Village competitor,

who admits she is a bit of a

fitness fanatic, was chased hard

by silver medal winner Sue

Greet, from Halswell’s Anthony

Wilding Retirement Village.

A total of 104 people from

31 Ryman retirement villages

throughout New Zealand and

Australia entered the virtual

cycling event, with 18 in the

women’s event.

Doreen said activities and

lifestyle co-ordinator Laura

Richmond warned her Sue was

making up ground in the final

kilometres.

“Laura tapped me on the

shoulders and said: ‘Watch

this one.’ I had just enough

to put a wee spurt on,” Doreen

said.

The course was “hard work”,

especially the changing of gears

on a hill.

“I remember the supporters

saying: ‘Change up a gear,

change up a gear’ as I was going

down the hill.

“I was struggling to get up a

gear and I also thought I don’t

know whether I can stand that

pressure, if I want to have a little

bit left at the end,”

While Doreen had ridden a

bike as a child going to school,

her love of cycling awakened

with a tour of the Otago Central

Rail Trail in around 2004.

She feels as fit as she has for a

long time.

Three times a week she exercises

on the treadmill, backed up

by a 1km swim.

On other days she completes

a village gym class before again

stepping onto the treadmill.

“I take the weekend off,” she

laughed.

The residents and spectators

in the Christchurch village gym

have witnessed some stunning

cycling from the women and

men, who were motivated in

part by the Japanese scenery on

the screen in front of them. ​

JUNGLE: A mural painted in 1979 by Linwood High School

sixth form students Grant Takle and Marcelle Park at the

former Woolston Park pool could be recreated at Te Pou

Toetoe: Linwood Pool. ​

Mural could be redone

• By Bea Gooding

A JUNGLE-INSPIRED mural

painted by students in the late-

1970s could be reimagined at

Linwood’s newest pool.

Created at Woolston Park

pool by Linwood High School

students in 1979, the mural’s

recreation is currently being

considered at Te Pou Toetoe:

Linwood Pool ahead of its October

opening.

Linwood Ward city councillor

Yani Johanson is keen to see it

brought back to life so that the

new facility can reflect a slice of

the area’s history.

“Woolston Pool has a significant

history in terms of its place

in the community,” he said.

“It’s important to not lose that

history, and personally I felt it

was a nice way to remember and

acknowledge that there’s a lot of

special memories people will have.”

Cr Johanson broached the

idea with Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

members last week after coming

across an old black and

white photo of the mural being

painted.

So far the possibilities were

open in terms of its resurrection,

including an exact recreation

or using the photo itself as the

artwork.

Schools collaboration breaks

barriers with performance

A COLLABORATION between

three high schools aims to break

down barriers of what it means

to be a performer.

Filled with music and dance,

‘Tukutuku’ was a performance

put on by students with disabilities

at Ferndale School, with the

help of students from Avonside

Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ high

schools.

Tukutuku is a type of Maori

ornamental weaving, so the

name was a fitting reference

for the performance’s theme of

“weaving three schools together

as one.”

“We are grateful to the

Christchurch Symphony Orchestra

and the Jolt mixed-ability

dance group for helping us to

achieve this,” said Ferndale

School teacher Jo Allan.

“The huge support from CSO

and Jolt enabled the breaking

down of barriers and the creation

of meaningful connections

for all our rangatahi [youth].”

The high school students

were supported by the CSO in

composing two pieces of original

music.

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

with students from Shirley Boys’ and Avonside Girls’ high schools.

With help from Jolt trust,

which hosts dance classes for

people with disabilities, the

Ferndale students were then able

to dance to the music crafted

especially for them.

The three schools have shared

the same site since 2019.

“Three years ago the three

schools came together on the

same site and didn’t know

anything about each other,” said

Allan.

“Now, through this unique

opportunity, we are celebrating

diversity and inclusion and look

forward to what we can create in

the future.”

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

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

money I recommend Parker Automotive. –

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.
