KALANI HEPI has only been in

business for five months and is

surprised to have been voted the

best hairdressing business in the

Hornby area.

“I didn’t expect it to be honest,

being fresh on the block,” the

23-year-old owner of Dorm Five

Barbers said.

Announced on Sunday, his win

is the latest in the Greater Hornby

Residents’ Association’s ongoing

quest to find the best businesses in

the area as voted by the public.

Dorm Five Barbers took the top

spot with 452 votes on the association’s

Facebook page.

Hepi believed his win was due

to the fact that his barber’s shop

was something different to the

usual hairdressing salons in the

area.

He had plenty of practise, in spite of

his age, having first taken to giving his

classmates haircuts while attending a

hostel school in the North Island.

“I ended up picking up the clippers,

there were lots of people to practise

on.”

The business was

going well, even with

the challenges posed

by the pandemic.

“[I am] very humbled

and appreciative

of the community’s

Kalani Hepi

support,” Hepi said.

Customer Callum

O’Sullivan visited

Hepi on Tuesday for his first professional

cut in several years.

A flatmate cut his formerly shoulder-length

hair during lockdown but

the end result of this home job was less

than ideal.

He would go back to Hepi in future,

O’Sullivan said.

“It was a good experience . . . he was

really friendly.”

The top dairy award was taken by

the Hei Hei Dairy, which received

about 400 votes.

Husband and wife Balvant and Anjana

Ravji have operated the dairy for

24 years and believe their familiarity is

a factor that has made them popular.

“It feels really good,” Balvant said.

The pandemic had, if anything,

been good for business as locals stayed

With about 550 votes, Islington Fish

& Chips won best the fish and chip

shop award, surprising owner Michael

Ye who did not realise he had won

until informed by a customer.

“I feel very blessed and happy, and

of course, very excited,” he said.

He had owned the business for

almost 12 years and credited his perfectionist

approach with helping his

business to win.

“Quality is always in front of quantity

and everything else.”

The business had been impacted by

the pandemic but was back to normal

now lockdown was over, he said.

Association chairman Marc

Duff said it was the first year the

competition had been held, but may

not be the last.

“The main reason is lockdown.

Businesses are doing it hard and we

do have some great local community

options.”

He hoped the competition would

encourage people to shop locally

rather than looking further afield.

“The passion for their local retailers

was borne out in the comments.”

Trophies were being made for the

winners, and he expected these to

arrive later this week, he said.

Upcoming heats would include the

best local chemist and sushi shop,

and the association was also open

to suggestions by the public on what

other types of business could square

off for top spot.

Opinions sought on Nor’West cycleway

PUBLIC consultation is open

on the third and final section

of the Nor’West Arc cycleway,

linking Papanui to Canterbury

University.

A drop-in session for people to

have their say will be held today

from 3pm to 5.30pm, at Cobham

Intermediate School on Ilam Rd.

City council acting head of

transport Lynette Ellis said

feedback was being sought on

the four-kilometre section of the

route along Ilam Rd, Aorangi Rd

and Matsons Ave.

This section has received $10.5

million in funding as part of

the Government’s ‘shovel ready’

projects.

Two options have been

developed for Ilam and Aorangi

Rds respectively.

For Ilam Rd, the option is

either a one-way cycleway on

each side of the road or a twoway

cycleway on the western side

of the road.

For Aorangi Rd, the option

is either a two-way cycleway on

the western side of the road, or

a shared path for cyclists and

pedestrians on the western side

of the road.

Other road safety

improvements are planned as

part of the cycleway, said Ellis.

“New signalised crossings on

Ilam Rd and across Wairakei Rd

will provide safe crossings for

Arc cycleway.

both cyclists and pedestrians.

“We’re also proposing to stop

through-traffic and right turns for

cars travelling on Aorangi Rd at

the intersection of Wairakei Rd.”

The Nor-West Arc is part of

a network of cycleways being

developed.

It is a key connector for

the west of the city, passing

nine schools and Canterbury

University.

In Brief

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.

MENZSHED FUNDRAISER

FOR PROSTATE CANCER

The Hornby Community

Menzshed is raising funds

for Blue September. A $1000

fundraising target was set last

week, and people can donate via

a link on the group’s facebook

page. Money raised will going to

the Prostate Cancer Foundation

to support Kiwi men living

with prostate cancer and their

families.

APPLICATIONS IN

COMMUNITY FUND

The city council has received 251

Summer with Your Neighbours

funding applications for

community-focused events,

including 47 from the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board area. The board has $4500

to allocate, and applications are

set to be considered next month.

Cameron and his team were fabulous to deal with from initial enquiry through

to settlement. Their seamless service was beyond world-class. I had been

recommended Cameron and his team by a number of people and I didn’t really

know what to expect, but what I experienced was phenomenal service, credible

advice, a realistic approach with practical solutions right throughout the campaign

and on auction day. We were thrilled with the result, and regardless of any outcome,

even prior to the auction we genuinely felt that the market had been well captured

by the level of interest and the feedback.

Sweet fundraiser for Starship surgery

• 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

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.

RAISING MONEY: Myles,

Max, Lucy and Charlotte in

front of their honey stall,

and Lucy in hospital at five

weeks old.

“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.

Visit starshipicu.org.nz/home

to donate.

‘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.

They were head of retail operations

for Foodstuff South Island

Ross Martin, deli manager Etan

Taner and grocery team member

HANDS-ON: Owner Marc Brokenshire takes part in the

store’s first Wig Wednesday event last week.

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.
