Pupils involved in plan to

fix ‘horrific’ school traffic

• By Fiona Ellis

NEW CAR parks will give parents

just three minutes to complete

the school run as part of ongoing

efforts by school pupils to battle

traffic congestion in St Albans.

The time-restricted car parks

are set to be trialled in Courtenay

St near the back of St Albans

School after receiving the green

light from the Papanui-Innes

Community Board meeting last

week.

A report in the board’s meeting

agenda stated that council staff

worked with pupils to identify

safety concerns surrounding the

school.

The intention is to draw away

school traffic from Sheppard Pl,

the traffic counts at both locations

will take place one and six months

after installation to monitor the

trial’s impact.

Speaking to Nor’West News last

week, parent Heidi Goebbels was

doubtful this would fix the “horrific”

traffic situation.

Time-restricted parking was

already in place in the school’s

main Sheppard Pl entrance and

the adjacent Trafalgar St, but some

parents pushed the limits, she

said.

Drivers become impatient

• From page 1

“There’s no one here to

police the three-minute

parking. They need someone.”

She was concerned the

heavy traffic would lead to a

child being hit by a car one

day.

“You see near misses –

the number of people is

crazy.”

However, she was pleased

that pupils were thinking

about how to tackle the

traffic.

“[My son] is on the school

council and he’s all over it.”

Parent Simon Rogers said

he avoided driving by the

main school entrance.

“It’s a bit of a nightmare,

I park elsewhere and walk

in,” Rogers said.

“[School staff] do what

they can but as a parent,

you’re still nervous.”

He sometimes parked in

Courtenay St, and although

he was unsure whether

restrictions there would

improve the situation, he

thought it was worth trying.

This was also the overall

attitude of the community

board, in spite of dissent

from Emma Twaddell and

Ali Jones, both of whom

ON FOOT: Parent

Simon Rogers, with

daughter Nina,

Albans School’s main

because it is too busy.

questioned the safety of the

trial.

The restricted parking

will begin 16m from the

Westminster St intersection,

where Jones said traffic

bottlenecked and drivers

became impatient.

“There is no doubt that

there needs to be more of

this kind of parking around

the area, but this is an horrendous,

and I’m not overstating

that, intersection,”

she said.

MORNING RUSH: St Albans School traffic is heavy

in Sheppard Pl.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

“To encourage children

to be getting in and out of

vehicles essentially at an intersection

is just gobsmacking,

to be honest.”

Chairwoman Emma Norrish

was supportive of the

change because she thought

new solutions needed to be

tried.

“It is aimed to be constantly

monitored and

reviewed, and revoked if

necessary.”

Board member and Innes

Ward city councillor Pauline

Cotter said the board

needed to trust the council

staff who recommended the

change.

“I don’t believe they’d

recommend us to put in a

parking treatment that was

going to endanger any lives

anymore so than they currently

are,” Cotter said.

“Admittedly it is a busy

area.”

Bin collection changes

to improve service

• By Fiona Ellis

UNCOLLECTED BINS may

have been bumped from the

top spot as the biggest concern

for those in the Papanui-Innes

Community Board area, but the

area still stands to benefit from

changes to the collection service.

A ticket

report has revealed

a breakdown

of issues

area residents

reported to the

city council

Ross Trotter

between July 21

and August 19.

Unlike the

two months prior, bins left

uncollected were not the biggest

concern, although they remained

an issue.

Subcontractor EnviroWaste

Services Ltd has been appointed

to help with Christchurch’s

kerbside collection service issues,

starting on September 6.

The impact of this is not yet

reflected in ticket reports, but

is intended to help contractor

Waste Management NZ Ltd,

UNCOLLECTED: Bins remain an issue for those in the

Papanui-Innes Community Board area. ​

which has struggled to meet

some performance targets.

City council resource recovery

manager Ross Trotter said a

shortage of class 4 drivers was a

factor in this.

“They have been working hard

to recruit new drivers and increase

the size of their fleet, but

unfortunately there continues to

be days when a small number of

streets have not been collected

due to the driver shortage.

“We want everyone’s bins

though to be collected on

the scheduled day so we have

appointed a subcontractor to collect

bins on one of the collection

routes each day,’’ Trotter said.

“This should ease the pressure

on our contractor and help

ensure that all the scheduled collections

happen on the right day

to provide a high level of service

to our residents.’’

The most recent ticket report

shows leaking water supplies to

be most common cause of complaint,

with 136 tickets, while

uncollected or damaged bins

placed second and third with 124

and 115 tickets respectively.

Last month 161 tickets for

uncollected bins were issued in

the area, while 118 tickets were

issued for water leaks.

The most recent report also

showed a general decrease of

tickets, at 1042 completed in

an average 3.1 days, down from

1363 tickets completed within an

average of three days the previous

month.

The most recent ticket report

for the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

area also shows collection issues

to be a concern.

In the ticket report for July 21

to August 19 contained in last

week’s meeting agenda, uncollected

bins were also the second

largest issue, with 130 tickets

issued.

However, the main reason

people in the area reached out to

the council concerned residential

property files.

In Brief

FUNDING APPLICATIONS

THe city council has received 251

Summer with Your Neighbours

funding applications for

community-focused events,

including 60 from north-west

Christchurch. Community boards

will consider the applications

in early to mid-October. The

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board has $4000 to

allocate between 36 applications

and the Papanui-Innes

Community Board has $3500 to

allocate between 24 applications.

NEW SEAL FOR ROADS

THe Christchurch Northern

Corridor and QE II Drive are set

to receive a layer of top seal that

will reduce the noise of traffic

and its impact on those who live

nearby. The work is expected

to begin in late October or early

November.

TENNIS COURT SURFACE

Burnside Park is set to upgrade

its four Astro Grass tennis courts

following a grant of $16,000

from the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

last week. The board approved

the grant to the Burnside Park

Tennis Club to replace the current

surfacing, which was worn and

slippery, and therefore unsafe.

Sweet fundraiser for Starship

• By Samantha Mythen

SEVEN-YEAR-OLD Lucy

White is on a waiting list for

heart surgery due to a shortage

of intensive care beds. But it has

not stopped her family from

fundraising to help alleviate the

shortfall.

Starship’s Paediatric Intensive

Care Unit (PICU) in Auckland

is currently at critical capacity

every 48 hours. It is the only

dedicated children’s intensive

care unit in the country, where

the most critically ill and injured

children are treated.

Starship needs to raise $40

million to meet its shortfall to fix

the bed shortage and upgrade its

PICU.

Lucy’s mother Charlotte

Easton said due to an

overwhelming need for PICU

beds, mostly due to the RSV

virus, they needed to wait one to

two months before Lucy could

have her surgery.

While they waited, they

wanted to help with Starship’s

fundraising efforts.

As Lucy’s father Myles White

has 100 beehives, the family

decided to spend a weekend

selling honey from their stall on

Blackpoint Rd in Charteris Bay.

They sold 43 jars and raised

more than $600, all with the

“incredible support” of the

RAISING MONEY: Myles, Max, Lucy and Charlotte in front of their honey stall, and Lucy in

hospital at five weeks old.

harbour community.

Easton said Lucy, her first

child, had been a “perfect

pregnancy” and nothing

“troublesome” had been picked

up during her scans.

It was a normal birth until

they realised Lucy was not

breathing and she needed to be

resuscitated.

Lucy was diagnosed with

Williams Syndrome, a rare

genetic condition affecting only

one in 10,000 births.

It is characterised by

medical problems including

cardiovascular disease,

developmental delays, learning

challenges, and a highly social

personality.

The family took Lucy home

after she was born with several

oxygen tanks in tow.

At five weeks old, Lucy and

Easton were flown up to Starship

on a “life flight” for emergency

surgery. Lucy had a cardiac

arrest on the operating table but

the medical staff saved her.

She had further surgery at

15-months-old and has since

travelled up to Auckland a

further 15 times.

“We were told they didn’t

know if she would get to age one

but getting her to three would be

great,” said Easton.

“And yet, she’s now made it to

seven.”

Lucy is waiting for surgery

because the stents in her

descending aorta are too small

and need to be replaced.

The Government has already

provided $25 million to

Starship’s fundraiser.

New bowling hub

planned after

$10m sale of land

• By Fiona Ellis

THE $10 million sale price of

a former bowling club site in

Merivale will help to fund the

building of a new bowling hub.

The 5107 sq m former St

Albans Bowling Club site at 5

Donald Pl sold for $10 million

last week.

Elmwood Park Bowling Club

president Peter Smith said

$2 million of this will go to

funding the planned rebuild of

the club’s Heaton St site.

Smith hopes the demolition

stage of the $3.5 million

project will be under way by

December.

The merger of the Elmwood

Park and St Albans bowling

clubs prompted the sale after the

two clubs joined in 2018.

The Heaton St upgrade project

prevented the club from leaving

the Merivale site.

“We’ll still get the use of

Donald Pl,” Smith said.

“The settlement date is

December 2023 [although] it

could be brought forward. That

gives us plenty of time to get the

new one up-and-running.”

The remaining sale proceeds

of the “very satisfactory” deal

will be reinvested by the club,

he said.

‘Phenomenal’ support for Wig Wednesday

HALFWAY POINT: New World Bishopdale grocery team

member Jess Scarsbrook celebrates her haircut before

scissors are swapped out for a razor.

• By Fiona Ellis

A CHILD Cancer Foundation

fundraiser caused a buzz in

Bishopdale last week, as four

people underwent a close crop to

help raise $2783.

New World Bishopdale owner

Marc Brokenshire was one of

four to lose their locks during the

supermarket’s first Wig Wednesday

event.

“My best friend died when he

was 10. Everyone’s got a link with

cancer,” Brokenshire said.

The support for the event was

“phenomenal”.

“It’s fantastic that the Bishopdale

community has got behind

it.”

People were able to donate in

store, and a $10 contribution was

made for each customer to wear

a wig.

Taking advantage of the

chance to have “a bit of fun”

some staff donned colourful wigs

or wore creative hairstyles.

Staff contributions alone were

over $1000, and three others

joined Brokenshire to have their

heads shaved near the store

entrance by Valentino’s Hair

Design hairdressers.

Jess Scarsbrook.

Scarsbrook said she had been

growing out her hair since last year

and the idea of having it shaved

to combat cancer had been in the

back of her mind for a while.

When the call for volunteers

went out at work, she saw an opportunity.

“I’ve always wanted to do it

and it’s for a good cause,” she

said.

The event was originally set

to take place a week earlier,

but as that was the first day

out of the Covid-19 lockdown,

Brokenshire said it was better

to wait until people were feeling

more comfortable with level two

protocols.

The Power of Auctions

Onsite Auctions

The traditional auction method,

usually conducted outside

the property with bidders

in attendance along with

neighbours and bystanders.

These onlookers increase

the attendance size and

therefore add to the feeling of

competition for the registered

bidders.

The fact bidders are making

offers outside their possible

future home can make buyers

bid emotionally. This type

of auction, with the right

auctioneer, can add a touch of theatre to

the auction process.

In-room Auctions

This type of auction will usually be

held in an office, auction house, hotel

or other large space and will normally

have several properties going under

the hammer over a short period of time.

This type of event allows us to control

factors that we otherwise couldn’t such

as weather, noisy neighbours, traffic

etc. It gives the bidders an increased

feeling of competition as there will be

many registered bidders spread over

properties, thereby giving perceived

extra competition.

Online Auctions

Born out of necessity, this method offers

an online solution allowing bidders to

purchase from the comfort of their

own homes. It also allows buyers from

interstate/overseas to bid. Since the

full-time introduction of online auctions

throughout the COVID-19 restrictions,

bidder numbers have increased

dramatically. Online auctions can be

offered either as a stand-alone product

or to complement the on-site and

in-room auctions allowing bidders the

option to attend the home or venue or

bid from a laptop or other device.

There are several options for online

auctions such as BidTracker, Gavl and

Auction Now.

When do I have to comply with

Healthy Homes Standards?

I continue to see a massive

misunderstanding of what notice

period is required for what reason

amongst landlords out there and it has

not of course been made any easier

by introducing new legislation while a

lot of people are still working through

understanding the timelines for Healthy

Homes standards.

So, let’s talk about the Healthy Homes

key dates this week.

All periodic tenancies dated prior to 1st

December 2020 will have until 1st July

2024 to comply with the Healthy Homes

standards, including not having to supply

a Healthy Homes Statement.

Any periodic tenancy prior to 1st July

2021 which may be extended for any

lesser period than the original period, so

a 12 month fixed term that is extended

for 11 months, will not be required

to comply, or have a Healthy Homes

Statement. Also, any Government

housing is not required to comply until

1st July 2024.

Any periodic tenancy dated after 1st

December 2020 does require a Healthy

Homes Statement and has 90 days from

the commencement of the tenancy

to comply with the Healthy Homes

Standards. Any fixed term tenancy

from 1st July 2021, or any variation to a

fixed-term tenancy after 1st July 2021,

must include a Healthy Homes Statement

and again, has 90 days to comply with

the standards. So, this means that even

though the original date of a fixed-term

may have commenced 1st January 2021,

upon renewal of this tenancy for another

12 months in January 2022 the property

will have to have a Healthy Homes report

completed and also comply within 90

days.

And lastly, if a fixed-term tenancy rolls

into a periodic tenancy any time from

1st July 2021, this will also need the

statement and have 90 days to comply.

My advice is to plan ahead. If you have

a fixed-term tenancy that is due to end

soon you need to ensure you have the

Healthy Homes report ready so you can

provide a copy to the existing tenant,

or have it ready for any new tenancy

agreement, and of course, if there is any

work which is required to be done to

comply with the Act, don’t put it off. Get

the work organised now to ensure you

are well and truly compliant in time to

avoid any potential fines.

Next time I will talk about the new notice

periods under the 2020 Residential

Tenancies Amendments Act.

Yachties tacking for competitive season

• 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.

Below – The complexities of racing a multi-hull make

yachting fun for the Pleasant Point Yacht Club Commodore

FAMILY FUN: Letting father Scott Lancaster do the heavy

lifting was Matthew Lancaster, 7, as he helps guide their

yacht down to the water.

Join the annual seaside spruce-up

• By John Cosgrove

COMMUNITY groups are

rallying for New Brighton’s big

annual clean-up.

Brighten Up Brighton will be

held on October 10 after being

delayed due to recent Covid

restrictions.

The New Brighton Residents

Association and New Brighton

Project are leading the event

which has attracted big interest

from other community groups.

NBP co-ordinator Martha

Baxendell said she and her team

were very appreciative of the

assistance and resources offered

by others including The Graffiti

Programme, City Care, New

Brighton Volunteer Fire Brigade,

PEEEP Trust, Keep Christchurch

Beautiful, Coastal Time Bank,

Sustain South Brighton, New

Brighton Lions, the Union

Parish, Christchurch Archery,

and volunteers from the Student

Volunteer Army and several

others in the community.

“We will meet at the Our

Bright Town mural at 10am and

from there we are looking to

head out into the community to

undertake a variety of tasks for a

couple of hours,” she said.

Coastal-Burwood-Community

Board deputy chairwoman Jo

Zervos said those tasks included

removing tagging, picking up

rubbish, pruning and weeding

while others may be washing

windows, washing seats or undertake

a bit of painting, sweeping,

removal of stickers, tidying

up planter boxes and tidying the

toilet block area.”

“We are hoping for more volunteers

so would like to get the

word out and make this a really

good community effort,” Zervos

said.

New Brighton Residents

Association chairwoman Celeste

Donovan added that while they

will be removing tagging, they

will be trying to preserve the

many unique graffiti-style artworks

around the mall area.

CLEAN UP CREW:

Community groups and

residents in New Brighton

are well known for their

efforts during appeals for

clean-up operations. This

crew assembled for the

last event, in preparation

for July’s Matariki night of

nights festival.

Work begins

on woodland

playground

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.

The Flower Show

Little River Gallery 25 September – 26 October

25 September – 26 October

Celebrating the season’s proliferation of vibrant blooms,

‘The Flower Show’ is a timely homage to Spring, interpreted by four

artists who are all new to exhibiting at the Little River Gallery.

What exactly do flowers show? For a careful observer they show the

fragility and power within us. Flowers show us that regardless of our

colours, shapes, characters, places we live in, we can bloom freely

simply by allowing all that we are to shine. - Galina Kim

Galina Kim is an award-winning Christchurch artist renowned for her

contemporary acrylic and mixed-media works. Her artistic studies

focused predominantly on textiles, and this influence is evident in

her rich, visually tactile style that is distinctively her own.

Motueka artist Kerry Fenton-Johns paints in both acrylic and

oils, expressing her love of nature through her intricately detailed

botanical paintings. Kerry paints mostly in a realistic style, inspired

by the contrast of light and dark and the use of subtle tones in the

natural world.

Informed by her print and pattern design background, Nelson artist

Georgina Hoby Scutt develops distinctive earthy colour palettes and

paints with broad expressive brushstrokes. Working across a range of

media, her work is primarily semi-abstracted landscapes, still life and

portraits.

Christchurch artist Harriet Millar’s works are hugely inspired by her

love of New Zealand landscapes, flora and fauna. Painting mainly

with acrylics, her interpretive style involves substantial layering of

paint with thick loose strokes and hints of unexpected colour.
