​Parking a major concern

with Harewood Rd design

• By Fiona Ellis

PARKING IS a hot topic for many

who voiced their opinion on the

city council’s Wheels to Wings

cycleway design, which would see

Harewood Rd reduced from four

lanes to two in some parts and

some on-street parking removed.

Throughout the 1348 public

submissions on the $19 million

cycleway, the word appeared 935

times.

The cycleway will link those

in Harewood, Bishopdale, and

Papanui to destinations including

schools, shops, businesses and

recreational facilities.

Feedback for the design closed

on March 15, and an overview

was due to be presented to the

hearing panel last Wednesday,

with public information days

following on Thursday and

Friday.

These events have been

postponed due to the Covid-19

lockdowns, but further public

feedback on design alterations

would be sought, the council

said.

Another important theme of

the submissions was safety for

both cyclists and drivers, with the

word “safe” or “safety” appeared

866 times.

• Turn to page 5

CHANGES: The city council’s proposed Wheels to Wings cycleway would see part Harewood Rd lose some of its parking

spaces.

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!

Children’s book a tool to raise virus awareness

• By Samantha Mythen

A NEW children’s book

written by a Sumner author

is connecting Australia and

New Zealand through a

child’s imagination while also

normalising hearing disabilities.

Kiwis and Koalas is a sentiment

of Sarah Milne’s own life.

Although she was born in

Christchurch, Milne learned to

“walk and talk” in Melbourne,

Australia after moving there

with her family when she was

two years old.

She’s been back and forth

between the two countries ever

since and has lived in Sumner for

two-and-a-half years.

“I have a deep-rooted

connection to Australia,” she

said.

Although this is her first published

book, Milne has always

loved writing, taking part in

New Zealand writing competitions

and classes since she was

young.

It was when she was pregnant

with her daughter, Ivy, and was

diagnosed with cytomegalovirus,

the first stirrings of a story about

kiwis and koalas began to string

themselves from words into

sentences in her heart.

“The story about a girl with a

hearing aid, pottering around in

a garden with her dog, just living

KIWIS AND KOALAS: Sarah Milne’s first childrens’ book

bridges the connection between New Zealand and

Australia through the imagination of a young girl with a

hearing disability. The idea came to her when she was

pregnant with Ivy (now 4). PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

a normal life, begun swirling

round in my mind.”

This then connected with

her own childhood and having

grown up with “a bridge”

between Australia and New

Zealand.

“I could not have foreseen

Covid-19 and I know right

The Nor’West News

is now on Facebook!

now for many, including

myself, there’s this deep feeling

and wish we could just go over

there.”

Ivy tested negative for CMV

at birth and knowing just how

lucky she was, Milne said she did

not want to take her healthy baby

for granted.

“I had this level of survivor’s

guilt,” she said.

“Whenever I saw other parents

out with their kids in prams,

kids who clearly were disabled

due to CMV, I felt so guilty to

just be able to walk away with

my own positive outcome.”

Milne hopes Kiwis and Koalas

can be a tool to help raise

awareness about CMV and make

a difference for those

who suffer from the disease and

their families, with a blurb at the

back of the book detailing the

disease.

“When you Google ‘CMV,’ of

all the stories shared by families,

the first thing they say is why did

no one tell us about this disease

before?” she said.

“I want to help change this.”

Milne grew up with a backyard

leading to dense New Zealand

bush. She used to “go and get lost

and make huts.”

“The girl in the story is told she

is a little bit Aussie and a little bit

Kiwi and the mum wishes they

could build a bridge between the

two countries,” she said.

“The girl then goes to explore

the bush and stumbles across a

bridge, and her imagination and

memory comes alive.”

Milne is “really proud” of the

response she has received from

the deaf community.

“There are a lot of disability

books out there that only reach a

certain community,” she said.

“In this book, the disability

is only really subtly part of the

story. It’s not mentioned, it’s just

how it is.”

Kiwis and Koalas will officially

launch on September 19,

at 10.30am in the Sumner Surf

Lifesaving Club.

In collaboration with Sumner

cafe Niche, people can exchange

the coloured-in invite for a free

fluffy and hot drink.

On the day of the launch, there

will be face painting, a Q+A,

and a reading of the book with a

Deaf Aotearoa NZSL interpreter

present.

Wheelie bins continue to be a problem

• By Fiona Ellis

UNCOLLECTED OR damaged

bins continue to be a problem in

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board area.

A ticket report has revealed a

breakdown of issues area residents

reported to the city council

between June 19 and July 18.

Uncollected bins were the

most common issue, with 161

tickets, while damaged bins and

water supply leaks placing second

and third with 120 and 118

tickets respectively.

The top two issues were

unchanged from the ticket

report applying from May 22

to June 20, but incidents had

increased, with the earlier report

showing a comparatively fewer

114 tickets for uncollected bins

and 103 tickets for damaged

bins.

The most recent report also

showed a general increase of

tickets, at 1363 tickets completed

within an average of 3 days,

compared to 1231 tickets completed

within an average of 2.6

days.

Incidents fell in a range of

categories, including wheelie

bins, transport, parks and three

waters council assets, and animal

management.

The report stated 58 per cent

(855) of residents reported

concerns by phone, email and

walk-in, while 41 per cent (612)

did so online through Snap Send

Solve and Hybris Online.

But at the conclusion of the report,

363 tickets were still open,

or not completed.

The ticket report was included

in the agenda for the community

board meeting held on

August 20 via Zoom during the

Covid-19 alert level 4 lockdown.

Last week Nor’West News also

reported on the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community

Board area ticket report for the

June 19-July 18 period.

In that time, 1639 tickets, or

jobs, were completed within an

average of 3.2 days.

Leaky water supplies were the

biggest issue, with 167 tickets,

while damaged bins came

second with 159 tickets and

residential property files came

third with 158 tickets.

ISSUES: In the most

recent Papanui-Innes

Community Board area

ticket report, uncollected

bins accounted for 161 of

the 1363 jobs completed.

Number of tickets

(issues) reported in

the Papanui-Innes

Locked

Down but

Looking

Up

by Lynette McFadden

‘Locked down but looking up’ is

how I’d describe this, our second

national Level 4 lockdown.

What have you made of it? Did

you survive, thrive, walk

daily, bake madly, online shop

gladly, consider other job

prospects, think about those

that are finding themselves in

tremendously vulnerable positions

and, more importantly, what did

you learn about yourself and the

worlds – personal and professional

– that you occupy?

I’ve learnt so much about myself and

about the resilience and compassion

that exists around us all. In 2020, when

we went into our first lockdown, my

major emotion was fear. Fear of the

unknown, fears for our business, our

family, our friends.

You name it I was scared silly about it.

Strategy, support and structure got me

through – as they probably did for many

others – but this time it’s different. You’re not

as scared when you know a bit, or should I

say a lot, more about what you’re dealing

with. Here’s some of what I’ve learnt.

1. Business hasn’t completely stopped.

Auctions were able to be undertaken

utilizing the Zoom platform and this

allowed us to sell unconditionally 20 out of

22 properties at a full range of prices and

across a myriad of locations. That’s a massive

change from last year and it’s gone a long

way to ensuring confidence in the market for

all participants. For me, the standouts from

the auctions have included the huge benefit

to vendors of having property videos and

floor plans, the increase in buying without

seeing and the continued strong demand for

property despite everything, as evidenced

by multiple bidders and some bidding wars

between highly motivated parties. People

are calmer, me included. As a business

we have daily (usually six days a week)

meetings which have been proactive and

constructive, training, company meetings, Q

& A, recruitment meetings and team yoga.

This rhythm ensures and engenders a quiet

confidence and has enabled a different level

of leadership effectiveness.

2. Thinking forward to the future has

also been more evident. What if this is an

ongoing part of our reality? What changes

Concerns businesses would suffer

• From page 1

Business was also a concern,

with the word appearing 486

times, while “environment”

“carbon” and “climate change”

appeared just 73, 43 and 28 times,

respectively.

The issue of parking was often

linked to concerns that businesses

would suffer.

Bernadette Bowe said she

had witnessed crowds of people

parked on both sides of Harewood

Rd to visit the Copenhagen

Bakery.

[It] will be severely affected

once on-street parking disappears

and patronage will drop

as a result through no fault of

theirs,” she said.

Gavin Blackwell was against

the change, stating “the cycle

lane will have too big a negative

impact on the on-street parking

for residents as well as business.”

Others, such as Maureen Mc-

Cloy, believed the support of

cyclists could offset this.

“I do take my wallet with me

when I go cycling; bakeries are a

speciality!” she said.

Bruce Thompson suggested

installing bike parks and said

affected businesses would be

smart to consider how they could

embrace the change.

Parking was also seen as an

issue beyond the business sphere,

with Johanna De Beer stating it

was already in high demand due

to heavy use of the Canterbury

Charity Hospital and sport facilities

at Nunweek Park.

However Colin Woodhouse

was in favour of the change, stating

that it would lead to a reduction

in the demand for parking.

“If more people cycle there

because they feel safe to from

Papanui then there will be fewer

cars battling for parking spaces.”

Safety was another big issue

among those who gave feedback.

Some, such as Nancy McGoverne,

said cycleways made them

feel safe enough to take to their

bikes when they would otherwise

drive.

Hamish Forbes, who often

biked along a stretch of Harewood

Rd in off-peak hours,

said the area was dangerous for

cyclists in its current form.

“Despite the short distance and

low-traffic time of day, I’ve had a

close call at least once a week. “

The safety of young cyclists was

also an issue, with as highlighted

parts.

by submitter Vicky Southworth.

“As a mum I feel much happier

encouraging my children to cycle

when they can use separated

cycle lanes,” she said.

A year 9 student at Papanui

High School stated they would

like to cycle due to climate

change concerns.

“I would like to bike to school

but I can not because it is too

dangerous . . . I have a brother and

sister who will be going to [cycle]

also if the cycleway is done.”

However, some believed the

cycleway would present its own

safety problems.

Cameron Duncan said he

found aspects of the plan unsafe,

such as the two-way cycleway

design.

“Often people seem to forget

to look both left and right and

when walking or driving through

them,” he said.

Belinda Lansley said cars

crossing the cycleway to access

houses or businesses could find it

dangerous.

This was already a problem she

encountered when living near the

Featherstone dairy.

“It used to take me at least

three minutes some days to safely

back onto the road . . . I can’t

see how anyone will be able to

back out anymore with the large

cycleway bang up against the

footpath.”

Some thought the plan should

be altered so that the cycleway

ran along the middle of the road,

such as Angela Bachop.

“[This] eliminates all the issues

of danger to cyclists from cars

getting in and out of driveways,

buses and rubbish trucks stopping

traffic whilst operating,” she

said.

Jennifer Christall-McRae

criticised the design and offered

another suggestion.

At Your Blooming Best

Getting your property primed for a spring sale

Although serious home buyers are

prepared to brave any weather, springtime

traditionally attracts an increase in highly

marketable property. This offers widespread

appeal for buyers in a post winter stockdepleted

market.

Selling your home in spring is certain to

attract keen buyer interest and this everpromising

selling season also ensures your

property is presented at its blooming best.

National house prices are rising and listings

can’t keep up with FOMO (fear of missing

out) demand and analysts predict no

slowdown in the immediate future.

It’s a seemingly fraught scenario that bodes

well for owners selling in spring. Despite

the widespread affordability crisis, housing

stock increases, which are anticipated for

most regions, are expected to boost buyer

confidence.

Top tips for creating winning results

Owners with deeper pockets may choose

to invest in professional landscaping

and refurbishment prior to open homes;

however, property owners can achieve an

overall impression of a streamlined interior

and exterior finish — with minimum outlay

and moderate effort.

• Complete all minor repair projects.

Making sure that everything is fixed

and in smooth working order will

translate to capital results at sale time.

• Adopt a neutral tone when repainting

walls, floors and ceilings, but make sure

to splash out on vibrancy when it comes

to creating a warm welcome at your

front door.

• Contemporise fixtures and fittings,

such as lighting, bathroom mirrors,

taps and cabinet ware, to suit your

interior style. Cosmetic makeovers are

not only affordable, but also add visual

appeal — given the extensive product

and services range on offer from local

suppliers.

• Pay attention to detail when

decluttering and spring cleaning. Less

is not only more, but also creates the

illusion of extra space when potential

buyers come knocking.

• If your décor is not up to standard,

consider renting furniture and artwork

for home staging effect with the wow

factor.

Follow the advice of your Ray White

Papanui agent. They will knowledgeably

guide you about the right listing price

for your property. It is also in their best

interest and yours to provide trusted tips

and guidelines — plus contact points for

reputable home makeover service providers

— when preparing and presenting your

property in sparkling form.

To discuss your upcoming Spring sale please

get in touch with the team from Ray White

Papanui, we look forward to hearing from

you.

Property Management During Lockdown

So here we are again with Covid-19

upsetting ‘normal business’ in New

Zealand. Property Management is not

classed as an essential service so during

Level 4 we are very limited to being able to

do only parts of our job, and not anything

which involves us meeting with people, or

visiting properties.

We are lucky enough to be an industry that

can continue working from home however,

so have been able to keep in touch with

our landlords and tenants and make sure

everything continues ticking along.

Level 3 does allow us to show rental

properties to prospective tenants and

with plenty of enquiry on our advertised

properties during Level 4 we are getting

people through at a steady rate. That said,

we are governed by lots of rules to ensure

that safety regulations are followed to

limit person to person contact, and while

this makes the process a lot slower, we are

committed to ensuring everyone is safe.

Last year when we were in lockdown

there was a lot of conversation regarding

conducting routine inspections which

generally insurance companies require

at minimum frequencies. The insurance

council helped out by advising that if we

were unable to conduct an inspection

within the specified timeframe it would

not affect any possible claims which was

fantastic. What they did not rule on

however, was whether the inspection still

needed to be undertaken, or if it could

just be missed. We asked our landlords

to check with their insurance companies

directly and 99% came back to us advising

that we did need to catch up on the

inspection. This seemed in a lot of cases to

be pointless, as it made the time between

inspections very short in a lot of cases. This

time around, all going well, the properties

we are unable to inspect will be fewer, so

hopefully, we will not run into the same

problems, as I am sure you will realise how,

for some tenants, this was quite obtrusive.

I have heard that some property managers

are asking tenants to conduct a virtual

inspection for them, however in my opinion

this is not a good option and the advice we

have received is that even with a virtual

inspection, we would still have to complete

a physical one when we were allowed. I

also recently read an article where a tenant

was not happy being asked to complete

a virtual inspection, so it is certainly not

something we are implementing.

This lockdown we have not yet been given

any advice in relation to inspections, so

will continue to work through as we did

last time. All going well, by the time this

is published we could be in level 2 where

using lots of safety protocols we should

be allowed to once again start inspecting

‘Dangerous’ intersection in focus

• From page 5

“Take out the berms, turn

them into a cycle lane next to the

footpath and use the on street

parking as a buffer.”

In spite of differing opinions,

an area of broad consensus

among those who submitted was

the benefit of having traffic lights

installed at the intersection of

Harewood, Breens and Gardiners

Rds.

Hilary Rose said the intersection

was dangerous, especially in

rush hour.

Although Zara Roberts called

the design “the most ridiculous

plan in roading I have seen in a

long time,” she supported this

one aspect of it.

“The only good thing about it

is the much-needed lights.”

Business was also a buzzword

in the submissions, often tied to

the issue of parking.

Some submitters said the cycleway

would lead to businesses

struggles in the area.

Environmental impacts of the

cycleway were less commonly

mentioned.

These were sometimes thought

to be negative, with Martin

Cudd stating the reduction

of Harewood Rd to two lanes

would cause “massive congestion”,

increasing carbon output

from cars spending more time in

traffic.

PEDAL POWER: The Wings to Wheels cycleway

submissions included feedback from cyclists and wouldbe

cyclists stating that the cycleway would encourage

them to bike more.

However, more submitters

believed they would be positive,

such as Mark McKinstry, who

cited the need to address climate

change and air pollution as the

reason why he supported the

cycleway.

“Cycling more, and driving

less, is an important step in the

right direction,” he said.

The cycleway will form part

of the network of 13 major

cycleways weaving throughout

the city.

At its western end, the

cycleway will connect with

the Johns Rd cycle and

pedestrian underpass,

linking through to the

commercial areas surrounding

the airport, and to McLeans

Island Rd via the Johns Rd

shared path.

This will be a good connection

route for the roughly 7000 people

who work in the airport area.

At its eastern end, it connects

directly to the Northern Line

cycleway and the planned

Nor’West Arc cycleway.

About half that cost is

expected to be met by Waka

Kotahi New Zealand Transport

Agency.

Time frame on water

mains upgrade

said to be too vague

• By Fiona Ellis

THE CITY council has been

criticised for being light on detail

about a water mains upgrade in

St Albans that is expected to take

more than a year.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board has asked the city council

to provide more information to

residents whenever works are to

take place in the area.

The replacement and upgrade

of water mains and lateral connections

in St Albans’ Ranfurly

St, Dover St, Trafalgar St, Cornwall

St and Lindsay St triggered

the board’s decision.

Chairwoman Emma Norrish

said information on the time

frame of the project was too

vague.

Beginning in January 2021,

the project and was set to finish

in late February 2022 depending

on weather and site conditions,

according to the Start Work notifications

delivered to residents

and the council website.

“The whole board agrees we

need specific time frames, especially

when roads are going to be

closed down,” she said.

Other details were also felt to

be vague and generic, she said.

“All our board wants to see is

more detail going out.”

The board requested to the

council that more detailed information

be given to the public in

the Start Work Notices, including

time lines of works to be undertaken.

It also requested copies of

all communications notifying

residents of any work to be undertaken

in the area, including

any letters from letter drops.

Lastly, the board requested

the city council provide more

detailed information on the relevant

city council website page.

City council staff were considering

the request along with

the contractors carrying out the

work, and she did not know when

a conclusion would be reached,

she said.

City council head of three waters

and waste Helen Beaumont

said the project was on track to

finish as scheduled.

When work was due to start

in a particular street, residents

were issued a separate letter and

door knocks also took place to let

residents and businesses know of

any access restrictions, she said.

Talented young musicians score awards

INTENSE competition has

helped two young musicians win

the chance to pursue overseas

study after they beat out other

hopefuls in the Alex Lindsay

Awards.

Harewood’s April Ju took out

the 2021 Alex Lindsay Award

and Isabella Gregory from St

Albans won the Giese Flute

Grant.

Administered by members

of the New Zealand Symphony

Orchestra, the awards support

young musicians to pursue an

orchestral career.

Ju, a 24-year-old

violinist, will put her

$2700 award prize towards her

second year of a Master of Arts

in violin performance at the

Royal Academy of Music in

London.

Earlier this year, Ju was a

finalist at the National Concerto

Competition.

She was also concertmaster

of the 2019 NZSO National

Youth Orchestra and has been

a regular casual player with

the Christchurch Symphony

Orchestra and the NZSO.

The Giese Flute Grant, an

award for promising young NZ

flautists, was established in 2015

in memory of former NZSO

principal flute Richard Giese.

Isabella Gregory

Gregory, 21, will use her $1200

prize on an audition trip to the

United States, where she intends

to study for a Master of Music

April Ju

degree in 2022. She is currently

working towards a Master of

Music at the New Zealand

School of Music and completed a

Bachelor of Music with honours

there last year.

She won the 2020 NZSM

Concerto Competition and

finished third last year at the

Gisborne International Music

Competition.

In 2019, she was second in

the National Concerto

Competition.

She has been a member of the

NZSO National Youth Orchestra

since 2016 and principal flute for

the past four years.

A member of the 2020 NZSO

fellowship programme, she is a

regular casual player with the

NZSO, Orchestra Wellington

and CSO.

Chairwoman of the Alex

Lindsay Award Trust, NZSO

principal flautist Bridget

Douglas, said the very high

standard of applicants made the

decisions difficult.

“These fine young musicians

have already made a big

contribution to musical life in

New Zealand and we’re glad

to be able to support them to

continue their studies on their

instruments,” she said.

“We hope that we’ll see them

all back playing professionally in

New Zealand one day.”

Retired teacher keeps up with the past

• By Fiona Ellis

A PASSION for history has

taken Paul O’Connor around the

world – but these days it takes

him to the Papanui RSA twice a

month.

Now retired from a history

teaching career that provided

him with opportunities to travel

everywhere from Antarctica

to Asia, he helps run a history

group at the RSA for his local

branch of the University of the

Third Age or U3A.

The organisation is for people

who, like him, are looking for an

alternative to swinging golf clubs

in their retirement, he said.

“It’s for people who wish to

keep their brains active.”

About 20 people belong to the

history group. If they want to,

the members take turns giving

presentations on events of the

past that pique their interest.

“For example, about a month

ago I gave a presentation on the

controversy which occurred after

World War 1 when it came to

the creation of war memorials in

Christchurch,” O’Connor said.

“The next presentation would

be on historical art heists.

“It’s a very eclectic group of

topics . . . as a former teacher, it’s

up my alley, really.”

The group also provides a good

opportunity for older people to

socialise.

“Essentially, it’s about not sitting

around, not waiting to die,

for people who feel their working

lives are over.”

O’Connor first became aware

of U3A when a member asked

him to give a guest lecture on

New Zealand society during

World War 1. “When he said ‘I

belong to U3A’, I actually, to be

honest, had to go and look it up.”

O’Connor joined in 2017,

the year after he finished up a

35-year term at Burnside High

School, where he headed the history

department.

His passion for the subject

started in his own school days at

St Thomas of Canterbury College.

“It was the influence of my old

school teacher, Emil Hall. He got

me interested in history.”

Armed with a masters degree

in history from Canterbury

University, he embarked on a 42-

year career in education.

As well as teaching, O’Connor

was also a chief examiner under

both the school certificate and

NCEA systems, and he was twice

chairman of the New Zealand

History Teachers’ Association.

When students were

enthusiastic, it can be a “magic”

profession, he said.

“I always thought of it as a

useful and important job to be

done. It’s hard work . . . but it’s

rewarding.”

Author Eleanor Catton, who

won the Man Booker Prize in

2013 for The Luminaries, was the

most well known of O’Connor’s

former students.

Sometimes he encounters past

students when they

join the ranks of the teaching

profession, and he has to insist

they call him Paul rather than

Mr O’Connor.

In 2005, a Royal Society

teaching fellowship enabled him

to step away from the classroom

for a year to carry out a research

project called From Papanui

to Passchendaele. He said New

Zealand military history is a

particular personal interest.

“I don’t think New Zealand

has really understood the often

decisive role that the New

Zealand division played in

battles.”

In World War 1, antipodean

forces filled a critical gap

in the line that stopped the

German advance, then joined

the British spearhead causing

the Germans to surrender, he

said.

He taught his students about

a wide range of topics which

also included World War 2

and the history of Antarctic.

The latter topic presented

him with one of the highlights

of his career – travelling to

Scott Base with four students.

The journey was facilitated

through an educational programme,

which had been confined

to adults until O’Connor

suggested pupils could also

benefit from it.

“We spent eight days

examining the future of (Sir

Edmund) Hillary’s Hut at

Scott Base and wrote a report

for Antarctica New Zealand

arguing why this hut (built in

1957) should be designated as

a historical monument.”

Memories such as standing

out on the ice were still exceptionally

vivid, he said.

“You can go anywhere in the

world, but Antarctica is the

one place where you actually

have to be invited to go.”

FIELD TRIP: Burnside High School students (from left)

Sam Smith, Alice McCubbin, Nicole Eaton and Nigel

Spence at Scott Base in Antarctica with teacher Paul

O’Connor.

Having retired, U3A was not

the only outlet for O’Connor’s

passion for history.

He was on the executive

of the Canterbury History

Foundation, which supported

research into, and publication

of, the region’s past.

He also volunteered at the

Air Force Museum of New

Zealand in Wigram, where he

converted taped recordings

into an electronic format to

stop them from being lost as

they deteriorated.

“If in the future someone

wants to do some research

on prisoners of war, or what

it was like being shot down

and parachuting out of an

aircraft . . . then the museum

will have that material,” he

said.

It had taken him four years

to convert and summarise

about 350 interviews, some

featured multiple tapes.

O’Connor estimated the task

was “about half done.”

The project brought to life

voices of the past in more ways

than one.

Some of the interviews

were conducted by his senior

students in the early 1990s for

a research project.

“[They] interviewed about

200 men and women who

served in World War 2.

“We got their stories before

they died.”

This was one of the most

satisfying projects O’Connor

has been involved with during

his teaching career.

History, he said, requires an

almost scientific approach to

discovering the truth about

the past rather than taking

refuge in a comforting fable.

“Sometimes this requires us

to confront unpleasant truths

about the reality of the human

experience.

“People have to have the

honesty to front up to the way

things really were,” he said.

History also embraced the

human need to share stories,

whether these were about their

own society and how it was

shaped or from places further

afield.

“I think there’s something

elemental in people about

telling and listening to

stories,” he said.

We need your

help now more

than ever.

Talented golfer with a lot of time on his side

• By Chris Barclay

COOPER MOORE isn’t the first

sportsman to be put off his game

by the garish neon lights of the

Las Vegas strip or Fremont St,

downtown.

On his first visit he stayed in

the MGM Grand, where Mike

Tyson made a relatively meagre

living in Brad Garrett’s Comedy

Club.

He’d bare his soul throughout

“Undisputed Truth”, a cautionary

tale for boxing fans as the

heavyweight champion of the

world detailed how he squandered

millions of dollars worth

of purses.

A prodigiously talented golfer,

Moore made his most recent trip

to Nevada’s desert oasis in 2018,

and three years on, until recently,

he has been whiling away his afternoons

teeing off against painting

ground sheets suspended in a

Christchurch garage.

Fortunately this is not a story

of unfulfilled potential, of opportunity

squandered – it’s quite

the opposite as Moore has been

walking the fairways of Clearwater

and Waitikiri since the

downgrade to alert level 3.

While global sport’s household

names have been impacted by

the Covid-19 pandemic – Tokyo’s

Olympians had anything but an

authentic Games experience –

GEOFF SLOAN

STOKED: Talented junior golfer Cooper Moore could return to Waitikiri, one of three clubs

he plays out of once Covid-19 alert level restrictions allowed; Pegasus (right) is currently

his favourite course. Here he plays for a Canterbury junior team against China in 2019.

aspiring athletes have also had

to live with measures required to

contain the virus.

Moore, who turned 13 in June,

still has time on his side though,

elite golfers, like tennis players,

tend to start very, very young in

this day and age.

After all, he swung his first

club right-handed as a four-yearold,

and by the time Moore was

eight he had made the cut for an

International Junior Golf Association

tournament.

He was 10th on the leaderboard,

and the Marshland

School pupil learned his lesson,

ditto dad.

“Being in Las Vegas we made it

a family holiday as well, it wasn’t

just about golf,” said Jayden

Moore.

“We were playing golf and going

to the strip and seeing what

was happening there. By the

time we got to the third round,

Cooper was pretty tired, the 40

deg C heat took it out of you.”

When the Moores returned

in 2018, they adopted a business

before pleasure approach for

the World Stars of Junior Golf

tournament.

“We had a detailed plan. We

stayed 25 minutes from the strip,

close to the course. After eight

days of golf, we had the holiday,”

Jayden Moore said.

Work before play paid off as

Cooper, a member at Clearwater,

Russley and Waitikiri, won the

boys’ nine-10 years grade at the

extra hole at Paiute Golf Resort.

“That was a really good experience

for us to see where he was

at. It was also an eye-opener to

understand what golf was like

on a world stage,” Jayden Moore

said.

Tournaments confined to home turf

• From page 15

Unfortunately Cooper’s focus

has narrowed to domestic tournaments

since Covid-19 emerged,

sabotaging plans for another trip

Stateside last July.

He was meant to play the

Mission Hills Country Club in

Rancho Mirage, California, home

course of the ANA Inspiration,

one of five majors on the LPGA

tour – and stage for the Future

Champions Golf Callaway World

Championships.

“It’s kind of disappointing he’s

not been able to head overseas.

You come a little bit accustomed

to it and when it doesn’t happen

you’re staying at home for the

winter. He was starting to build a

little bit of a profile for himself,”

Moore said.

“It is frustrating for him but

he’s pretty mature in that sense,

he understands the reason why.”

Cooper, whose handicap was

11.4 when he won in Las Vegas,

has had to settle for trimming

that figure to 1.5 while setting

club records.

He won the Waitikiri senior

men’s club championship early

this year as a 12-year-old, the

youngest winner since the title’s

inception in 1939.

In his last major tournament

in May, Cooper featured in

Canterbury’s under-19 team for

the South Island Interprovincial

LEGEND: Cooper Moore, here celebrating an approach shot as a nine-year-old, has gradually tamed Russley since he

joined the club’s junior programme four years earlier. He met New Zealand golfing legend Sir Bob Charles at Russley in

March has aspirations to play in the Christchurch leg of the Charles Tour at Pegasus next month.

Championships in Dunedin

and was fourth in the individual

under-16 competition.

In an ideal world he would have

been in Auckland this week at the

New Zealand under-16 championships,

the targets are now in

October: the New Zealand Amateur

Championships in Dunedin

and qualification for the Charles

Tour DVS Pegasus Open.

“He’s keen to challenge himself

against New Zealand’s professional

and amateur players. It’s a

good learning curve and a good

opportunity to see what you have

to do to get your game to that

level.”

Though expectations are high,

Cooper’s ego doesn’t match them,

with talent not compromised by

temperament.

Dad and his coach, Russleybased

Rodney Yee, ensure Cooper

stays on the straight and narrow.

“I was pretty fortunate to be

involved with a pretty successful

sports team,” said Jayden Moore,

a former manager of the world

champion Black Sox softball

team.

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

notch! If you want top service and value for

money I recommend Parker Automotive. –

major work like clutches, replacement

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-

to help with all your vehicle servicing
