Bexley landfill clean-up welcomed

• By John Cosgrove

RESIDENTS associations are

relieved the contaminated

Bexley landfill site will finally be

cleaned up.

“Thank goodness,” was the

response from New Brighton

Residents Association

chairwoman Celeste Donovan

when she heard

the city council

has come up

with a plan to

prevent the

old Bexley

dump from

Celeste

Donovan

continuing

to spill waste

into the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary.

THe council will spend $1.5

million to try and contain the

rubbish that Donovan said

residents have been complaining

about for years.

“THey are worried about the

items floating in the estuary and

water leaching out from the old

dump.

“Most of the rubbish has

remained on the shore on the

other side of the estuary where

the public are excluded, but they

would be shocked at some of the

stuff embedded in the shoreline

mud there.”

Donovan said 30 years of

rubbish dumped in Bexley was

always going to come back and

haunt the community one day

as the tidal changes created

by the quakes have had a part

to play in exposing debris still

years away from breaking

down, and “there is some pretty

environmentally-nasty stuff

buried there.”

“Coastal residents, particularly

along Southshore and South New

Brighton, will be pleased gravel

and rocks will be used to bulk

up the edge and the creation of a

natural beach will help.

“But we believe that is only

a temporary fix and a more

permanent solution needs to

be found as climate change will

no doubt have a future impact,”

Donovan said.

THe city council resource

recovery manager Ross Trotter

said work has started and a

contractor has been appointed

to do initial work at the closed

Bexley landfill.

“It involves clearing

undergrowth to prevent birds

from land-nesting prior to the

start of the nesting season and

felling trees to give machinery

access to the foreshore.”

South Brighton Residents’

Association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson said it has been a

significant relief to see the work

starting.

“It’s been a problem for years

and now they are finally fixing

the mistakes of the past, we are

fully supportive of the council

and it’s good to see them start,”

he said.

THe city council’s remediation

plan also includes the Burwood

Resource Recovery Park.

THe park was established to

take construction and demolition

waste following the earthquakes

but is now being progressively

closed with a view to returning it

to a recreational area.

NO ENTRY: Deep

water and

bio-hazard signs

at Bexley’s old

landfill site. ​

Just one area is still accepting

contaminated soils.

“Council has made an

application for resource

consent allowing for low-level

contaminated soils at Burwood

Site C until June 30, 2024,”

Trotter said.

Final landscaping work on

another three sites within the

park is continuing.

THe city council will spend

another $1 million removing the

former Le Bons Bay landfill on

Banks Peninsula and work

is planned to fix former

landfills at Onuku and Barrys

Bay later this year.

School Update

Manukura Kōrero

He taonga rongonui te aroha ki te tangata

Goodwill towards others is a precious treasure

Tēnā Koutou Katoa. Malo ‘etau lava.

We returned to kura just over a week ago and it feels great

to be back. Lockdown was hard for

everyone and being away from kura

for three weeks was a challenge on

every level. A huge congratulations

to all of our ākonga for the amazing

mahi they completed during

Lockdown. Our senior ākonga are

to be commended for the amazing

effort put in to meet their NCEA

commitments and deadlines!

We thank our kaimahi/staff for their

unparalleled support of ākonga throughout lockdown.

Their creativity, motivation and dedication resulted in

many innovative lessons being provided on-line and some

outstanding mahi/work being produced across the kura.

With the continued Level 4 Lockdown in Auckland we are

very aware that we must be vigilant each and every day at

kura. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link and as we

have seen in Auckland it only takes one person to break

the rules and it has implications for us all. Ākonga are not

required to wear masks at kura but they are expected to

be careful to observe the 2 metre rule for social distancing

as often as possible. As well, it is important that all ākonga

observe diligent hand-hygiene throughout the day.

Vaccination is a controversial issue in Aotearoa New

Zealand at the moment. The Haeata board does not insist

that ākonga and kaimahi are vaccinated, but as a kura we

are working with the Ministry of Education and Ministry

of Health to ensure whānau are supported to make an

informed decision about the merits of the vaccine.

Please check our Facebook Page to read about our

“Crush COVID” competition.

Patua te taniwha o te whakama

Do not let shyness overcome you

If you want to enter our “Crush COVID Competition”

all you have to do is bring in your whanau’s proof of

vaccination cards (two injections required), any time from

now until Friday, 29 OCTOBER 2021 to be in to win!

There will be three draws of $200 each.

I want to commend our ākonga for their fantastic success in

Winter Sports. We are proud of their efforts and have been

working with all codes on the “Rise UP” initiative, which

explores the issue of Racism in Sport. Over the coming

weeks we will be sharing ākonga voice with our community

to highlight the many challenges they face when they take

the field or the court to represent us.

It is hard to believe that Term 3 is all but over. We look

forward to a well earned break in the October holidays,

because Lockdown was never that. When we return in

Term 4 our focus is on NCEA assessment in the senior

kura and the establishment of our new kura waenga, which

launches in 2022 and introduces a new era of intermediate

education at Haeata.

Kia kaha, kia toa, kia manawanui.

amazing learning our ākonga did. We can identify

and designer in action with these examples of

home learning. The kaupapa that we have been

focusing on for our Rakaihaututanga (inquiry based

learning) has been about pūrakau / stories and

includes fairytales and our local Aranui history.

Other challenges included exploring the back yard

and areas within the community and time spent

with whānau. All the Kaiako enjoyed connecting

with ākonga and their whānau via phone, text,

Google Classroom, Zoom, Facetime and email over

lockdown to support learning. A big mihi to our

whānau for supporting their child’s learning at home

over lockdown.

Work begins

on woodland

playground

SHELTER PLANNED: An artists impression of the shelter areas proposed for the Dallington Landing on the Avon River.

IMAGE: NEWSLINE

Work on community picnic area under way

WORK HAS started to turning

part of the former Dallington

red zone into a new community

picnic area.

The $2.3 million Dallington

riverside landing will be constructed

next to Gayhurst Rd

and is the first of several landings

to be built along the Avon

River.

Council head of parks Andrew

Rutledge said the theme for the

landing will be “a picnic in the

forest.”

It has been designed to encourage

people to connect with

each other, the river and the

Avon River Corridor Regeneration

Area, he said.

“It’s exciting to be at the point

where physical work is starting

and people can see first-hand

the regeneration area transforming.

“Volunteers are in the process

of planting a native forest on

the opposite side of Gayhurst

Rd, and the first of the three

pedestrian bridges at Avondale is

progressing well.”

The Dallington landing will

feature shelters, koru-shaped

pathways, picnic areas, tables,

steps down to the river, a water

fountain, a bike stand, and a

wheelchair-accessible toilet

block.

Work is expected to be finished

by June next year and this

takes into account the planting

seasons required for new vegetation,

Rutledge said.

The landing, as well as three

pedestrian bridges across the

Avon River, are funded by a

$13.7 million grant from the

Christchurch Earthquake Appeal

Trust.

The 11km, 345ha Green Spine

in the Avon River Regeneration

Area extends along both sides of

the river and will be restored to

original native forest and wetlands.

It will also contain nature

trails, cycleways, landings and

community spaces.

WORK HAS started on the 2ha

childrens accessible woodland

playground at Rawhiti Domain,

after five years of planning.

Contractor Creative Intentions

owner Geg Howell said the work

came together very quickly after

years in the making.

“This is only the start of what

the community can do with this

space,” he said.

The pathway around the site is

wide enough for two wheelchairs

to move side by side, while the

open space at the front will have

equipment for children of all

physical abilities.

The woodland area will have

physically challenging activities to

get children back to nature.

More fundraising will be

needed to fully complete the

playground, but the current work

should be finished by Christmas.

Yachties tacking ahead for competitive

• By John Cosgrove

AN EASTERLY wind made

racing fun at the Pleasant

Point Yacht Clubs 101 st season

opening held last Saturday at

South Brighton.

About 50 members and

guests joined in the opening

ceremony before 17 crews and

their yachts tackled the blustery

conditions in an assortment

of multi-hulls, trailer and

sunburst yachts.

Club official Nigel Humphrey

said it was a great turnout for

the start of the season as the

yachts took their turn at

lining up for the Mark Foy

handicap formatted race,

whereby the slowest starts first

for the hour and a half race

around the estuary at South

Brighton.

In the multi-hull race for

the Eric Orange trophy, Ian

Douglas and Simon Thompson

won aboard Iznerz, a Weta

trimaran, from James Cains

in Neva Weta, while in the

Pet Cup Noémi Gulliver

and Graeme Hore were first

aboard Tafua (Sunburst class).

In the Nina Mander trophy

Dan O’Sullivan in Humbug

(Firebug) was first from Arthur

Mahon in Aphid (Firebug).

HELPING HAND: Brigid Sheen helps Ruaraidh Forster, 14, rig

their boat before heading out to tackle the course.

No dog racing at QE II

• By John Cosgrove

DOG RACING will not return

to QE II Park after Greyhound

Racing NZ’s proposal was

rejected by the Coastal-

Burwood-Community Board on

Monday.

Board chairman Kelly Barber

said they decided to exclude the

GRNZ’s proposal after a huge

amount of feedback from the

community.

“The trend is to move away

from this sort of industry and

we didn’t want to waste GRNZ’s

time continuing with the process.

“It made sense and at the end

of the day we want to do what

the people want for the area,”

he said.

Since 2019 the city council

has been consulting with the

public on its $12 million draft

Master Plan for the 36ha QE

II Park site, as they sought any

commercial proposals concerning

the south-west corner of the

park adjacent to the Travis and

Frost Rds intersection.

Three proposals were filed and

they included the Christchurch

Archery Club seeking an outdoor

archery range and indoor

archery training, and Five

Under Par Ltd proposing an $11

million amusement/sporting

complex.

Said archery club president

Dave Henshaw: “They didn’t renew

our Rawhiti Domain lease

this year after almost 30 years

on the site so we are hoping they

are looking for somewhere else

for us to train.”

Community board deputy

chairwoman Jo Zervos said all

three proposals needed careful

consideration.

“The Five Under Par proposal

has been around for a long

time, I think this venture

would make up for some of

what the community has lost,

and archery need to find a new

venue so it would great if they

can stay local,” she said.

Apples Never Fall

by liane moriarty

The Delaney family love one another dearly—it’s just that sometimes they want to murder

each other... If your mother was missing, would you tell the police? Even if the most

obvious suspect was your father? This is the dilemma facing the four grown Delaney

siblings. The Delaneys are fixtures in their community. The parents, Stan and Joy, are the

envy of all of their friends. The four Delaney children—Amy, Logan, Troy, and Brooke—

were tennis stars in their own right, yet as their father will tell you, none of them had what

it took to go all the way. But that’s okay, now that they’re all successful grown-ups and

there is the wonderful possibility of grandchildren on the horizon. An incident happens

with a stranger named Savannah and later Joy goes missing, and Savannah is nowhere

to be found, the police question the one person who remains: Stan. But for someone who

claims to be innocent, he, like many spouses, seems to have a lot to hide. Two of the

Delaney children think their father is innocent, two are not so sure—but as the two sides

square off against each other in perhaps their biggest match ever, all of the Delaneys will

start to reexamine their shared family history in a very new light.

COASTAL SANDS | 9 NEW BEACHFRONT HOMES

Contemporary two-bedroom, three-bedroom and four-bedroom, architecturally designed apartments

allow for luxury modern living in a coveted waterfront locale. Premier comfort meets beachside living at

Coastal Sands, the first beachfront development in New Brighton since the early 2000s.

A natural colour palette and elegant design reflect the stunning coastline on which it sits. Organic toned

gates match the exterior of the property, offering seclusion and comfort, with every aspect of each

residence carefully considered and architecturally designed to maximise light, space, and privacy.

Beachfront homes 1-4 are set out over three levels providing incredible views, watch the sunrise,surfers

or boats from the second level and top floor.

Inside, architecturally designed floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate the living space with brilliant natural

light. A muted, warm palette has been used throughout the home and a chic, minimalistic aesthetic

allows the views available through the window to take centre-stage. Open-plan lounge and dining and

built-in cabinetry allow for effortless entertaining and the kitchen has been designed with timeless

modern demands in mind; ample storage, contemporary appliances, stone-topped benches, and

natural timber all add to the appeal of the space.

Delivering the height of liveability, enjoy a central location, allowing easy access to a myriad of New

Brighton’s cafes and conveniences - the beach, and He Puna Taimoana - New Brighton Hot Pools are

all within walking distance, while Shirley Boys and Avonside Girls High School are just 2 kilometres away.

OUR STORY | KIERAN BALL

Born and bred in Christchurch, and growing up in East Christchurch, Kieran

knows this town inside out. His personal drive is second to none. All prior jobs

have involved helping people and building positive relationships. Having

recently purchased his own first home, he has a special empathy for other first

home buyers. Sellers can also trust his drive and determination: he brings a large

personality with a trusting presence to the table.

“My goal is to make your Real Estate experience fun, exciting and memorable

while maintaining the utmost professionalism.”

KIERAN BALL

021 281 1220 | kieran@homechch.co.nz

What made you want to jump into the world of real

estate?

I previously worked in a gym and one of my clients was a

top Christchurch agent. He convined me I would make a

good agent so when the first lockdown brought our travel

plans to a halt I decided to jump in head first!

Can you remember your first sale?

Definitely, 1/435 Madras Street! I’d like to give a special

thanks to my friends who not only trusted my ability on a

first sale and now have engaged me to sell their next

home.

What was most memorable when you purchased your

first home?

Not getting a gift, thank you or any appreciated from the

selling agent. It was a great lesson on what not to do!

Do you have any advice for someone considering a

career in real estate?

Your first office may not be your last. Be prepared to

struggle, it’s not easy work but very rewarding. Work with

people who genuinely care about you and don’t become

you’re not.

If you had to choose an alternative career path, what

would it be?

I’ve had a wide range of experiences already but if real

estate was no longer on the cards I’d most likely apply for

a role with the police.

Ok, now let’s have some fun. What’s the most awkward

thing that happens to you on a regular basis?

Being 6’6 it’s reasonably obvious - hitting my head on

things!

Would it be wrong to assume you play basketball?

No, you’re spot on. I play for a local team, UC Men’s Prems

and I follow the LA Lakers.

Who do you idolise and why?

My Dad. I can’t even begin to find the words to describe

how much he’s done for me and my family.

Summer is coming, where are you looking forward

visiting in Canterbury once the sun is shinning?

Taylors Mistake is first on the list, as soon as it’s warm

enough.

What is your favourite eatery in Christchurch?

Little High - specifically Bacon Brothers.

You’re left alone on a resort island, you can take one

book, one album & one film - what do you chose?

David Goggins, Can’t Hurt Me | John Mayer, Room for

Squares | Coach Carter

And finally, what is your greatest achievement to date?

Purchasing my first home with my partner Tia.
