Residents call for name change<br />

of new Avondale foot bridge<br />

• By John Cosgrove<br />

CONFUSION OVER a new foot<br />

bridge’s name has prompted calls<br />

for its renaming.<br />

The call for a new name comes<br />

after a barrage of online comments<br />

and queries by residents<br />

groups and individuals seeking to<br />

rename the new Avondale footbridge<br />

because of the confusion<br />

caused by there already being an<br />

Avondale bridge nearby.<br />

Residents from Avonside, Burwood<br />

east and Shirley are being<br />

asked to come up with a possible<br />

name for one of the three new<br />

pedestrian and cycle bridges over<br />

the Avon River scheduled for completion<br />

early next year.<br />

The Medway St and Snell Pl<br />

bridges replace previously earthquake-damaged<br />

bridges, and will<br />

reconnect the pedestrian/cycle<br />

route that runs across the Avon<br />

River, while the new Avondale<br />

bridge provides a connection to<br />

the future Eastern Reach wetland<br />

restoration area.<br />

Burwood East Residents Association<br />

secretary Gae Johns said<br />

the new Avondale footbridge was<br />

originally called the Aranui bridge<br />

on regeneration plans but, when<br />

referred to later in council documents<br />

it’s name had changed to<br />

Avondale.<br />

“This is very confusing as there<br />

is already an Avondale bridge<br />

there,” she said.<br />

“It is a bridge which enables<br />

another connection between red<br />

zone areas of two suburbs, namely<br />

Burwood and Avondale.<br />

CONNECTION: The new Avondale foot and cycle<br />

bridge is on site, but the structure still has a bit of<br />

work to be completed on its approaches.<br />

New liquor outlet prompts calls<br />

for city-wide alcohol policy<br />

• By John Cosgrove<br />

CALLS FOR a city-wide local<br />

alcohol policy are mounting<br />

following the approval of the<br />

latest off-licence application.<br />

In spite of 50 written objections<br />

and presentations from concerned<br />

citizens and community<br />

board members, a new Bottle-O<br />

off-licence will<br />

open within the<br />

next six months on<br />

Prestons Rd.<br />

Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community<br />

Kelly<br />

Barber<br />

Board chairman<br />

Kelly Barber<br />

said he was not<br />

surprised by<br />

the decision and while the city<br />

council has some “good by-laws”<br />

governing public drinking, it is<br />

time for it to step up and create a<br />

city-wide alcohol policy.<br />

He said without such a policy,<br />

which many other cities have,<br />

it is basically impossible for a<br />

community to stop a liquor outlet<br />

from being opened.<br />

Under the Sale and Supply<br />

of Alcohol Act 2012, councils<br />

can develop local alcohol policies<br />

(LAPs) to influence the location,<br />

number and trading hours of<br />

businesses licensed to<br />

GREEN LIGHT: A new off-license has been approved on Prestons Rd, in spite of 50 written<br />

objections.<br />

sell alcohol.<br />

Barber and fellow community<br />

board member Linda Stewart<br />

attended the hearing and told<br />

the Christchurch District Licensing<br />

Committee that the board<br />

doesn’t usually comment on<br />

applications for new licences or<br />

renewals, but in this case there<br />

was “surprise and concern” from<br />

the community.<br />

He said the board was concerned<br />

about the number of alcohol<br />

outlets within a five-kilometre<br />

radius of the proposed site.<br />

Barber told <strong>Pegasus</strong> <strong>Post</strong>:<br />

“People told me it was very hard<br />

to stop a bottle store opening and<br />

a lot of the information we heard<br />

[at the hearing] was against<br />

the application.<br />

“I feel that if a community<br />

wants to stop something in their<br />

area, their opinions should be<br />

taken into consideration.<br />

“Without the city having a<br />

guiding alcohol policy, at the end<br />

of the day all they are doing is<br />

looking at the point of law and<br />

the point of law pretty much says<br />

you can open a bottle store as<br />

long as you fulfil the criteria,” he<br />

said.<br />

The criteria includes trading<br />

only between the hours of 9am<br />

and 10pm, and no alcohol to be<br />

sold or supplied on Good Friday,<br />

Easter Sunday, Christmas Day<br />

or before 1pm on Anzac Day.<br />

Other discretionary conditions<br />

include no advertising of alcohol<br />

products on the outside of the<br />

premises.<br />

City council community support,<br />

governance and partnerships<br />

acting head Matt McLintock<br />

said the number of written<br />

objections was considered at the<br />

hearing.<br />

“One of the objectors appeared<br />

and was heard, along with<br />

the local community board<br />

chairman [Barber]and one of<br />

their members [Stewart] who<br />

presented their submission<br />

in person at the hearing to<br />

convey the concerns of the local<br />

community.<br />

“The application for an offlicence<br />

was granted subject to<br />

conditions as detailed in the<br />

decision,” McLintock said.<br />

The application was not<br />

opposed by the district licensing<br />

inspector, the police or the<br />

medical officer of health.<br />

No bridge renaming process established<br />

• From page 1<br />

“Some of our residents have<br />

queried the reasons behind<br />

the naming of this bridge, as<br />

have we.<br />

“Perhaps it could reflect<br />

the areas on both sides of the<br />

bridge rather than a suburb<br />

name,” Johns said.<br />

Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board member Bebe<br />

Frayle asked city council<br />

officers at a recent meeting,<br />

if a process for the naming of<br />

the Avondale Bridge has been<br />

for unveiling<br />

established.<br />

Council officers advised<br />

her that no process has been<br />

established.<br />

They then advised the<br />

meeting that if the Burwood<br />

East Residents’ Association,<br />

other groups or individuals<br />

wanted to propose names for<br />

the bridge, they were welcome<br />

to send their suggestions<br />

through to council for consideration<br />

With only weeks to go before their<br />

official unveiling, the large metal<br />

fronds located at the intersection of<br />

Anzac Drive and New Brighton Rd,<br />

are attracting interest from passing<br />

motorists. Repurposed to honour the<br />

Anzac story, the new-look fronds will<br />

align with the Poppies over Gallipoli<br />

sculpture on the corner of Anzac Drive<br />

and Travis Rd. The Anzac Fronds were<br />

Jordan’s community garden idea<br />

grows after getting green light<br />

• By John Cosgrove<br />

HELPING OTHERS is a calling<br />

for Chisnallwood Intermediate<br />

pupil Jordan Wilson.<br />

If he’s not helping his grandfather<br />

clear fallen branches from<br />

his farm, or giving his dad a hand<br />

around the house, the 12-year-old<br />

is helping others at school.<br />

In June, while cycling from his<br />

home in Shirley to school via the<br />

Avondale red zone, Jordan had a<br />

brainwave.<br />

Why not get a small part of the<br />

huge open spaces there and build<br />

a garden to feed those in need.<br />

“I wanted to do something, so<br />

I started asking people online<br />

what I had to do to get a small<br />

plot of land there to grow vegetables<br />

on – a community garden.”<br />

Jordan said he was eventually<br />

put onto Land Information New<br />

Zealand.<br />

“It turned out to be a lot of<br />

paperwork but everyone loved<br />

the idea,” he said.<br />

His proposal was given the<br />

green light by LINZ in July, and<br />

Jordan became the youngest person<br />

to be granted a temporary<br />

land use licence for the Avon<br />

River corridor regeneration area.<br />

(Since 2016, LINZ has made<br />

former residential red zone land<br />

available to community groups<br />

and organisations for more than<br />

3000 short-term projects, events<br />

or land uses.)<br />

From then, Jordan’s small<br />

community garden project<br />

grabbed the attention of sponsors,<br />

community organisations<br />

and high profile supporters, who<br />

donated materials and time to<br />

help him achieve his goal.<br />

“City councillor Phil Mauger<br />

donated the timber, Citycare<br />

staff helped me construct the<br />

first four garden beds,” Jordan<br />

said.<br />

When the soil for the beds was<br />

delivered, Jason spent a tiring<br />

afternoon moving it by himself<br />

from the side of the road to the<br />

beds in a wheelbarrow.<br />

Now there are six beds on site,<br />

and Jordan is propagating plants<br />

at home for the coming growing<br />

season.<br />

“I’m hoping to have tomatoes,<br />

carrots, lettuces and cauliflowers<br />

in the first crop. Now that we<br />

have a water system in place I<br />

will soon be transferring them to<br />

the beds,” he said.<br />

Water was always going to be<br />

an issue, as all infrastructure has<br />

been removed from red zone land.<br />

Jordan’s father Matthew<br />

Wilson said his hard-working<br />

son spends hours each day either<br />

tending the beds after school<br />

or online answering the many<br />

emails and messages he gets<br />

from his Avondale Community<br />

Garden Facebook page.<br />

“His grandmother even came<br />

down from Blenheim to help<br />

him with his seed propagation<br />

over the school holidays,” Wilson<br />

said.<br />

Chisnallwood Intermediate<br />

principal Justin Fields said setting<br />

up the garden was a huge<br />

undertaking for anyone, let<br />

alone a year 8 student.<br />

“Jordan set up this garden<br />

because he wants to give to the<br />

community.<br />

“Even when faced with<br />

bureaucracy, he pushed on and<br />

won. He shows that any tamariki<br />

with leadership can find a place<br />

in this world,” Fields said.<br />

Jordan said: “It feels good to<br />

be doing something good for the<br />

community, and now the hard<br />

work starts as I have to figure out<br />

how to distribute the food once<br />

it’s grown.”<br />

Group has large range of women’s products<br />

• By Tina Grumball<br />

IF THERE’S anything the<br />

women of the MacFarlane Park<br />

neighbourhood centre can do<br />

better than friendly smiles or<br />

great baking and coffee, it’s<br />

fighting period poverty.<br />

After struggling with it herself,<br />

and listening to fellow women,<br />

Shirley resident Toni Orchard<br />

set out to provide another option<br />

than staying at home or lining<br />

themselves with bulk rolls of<br />

toilet paper.<br />

“That’s why I started it – to<br />

make sure everyone’s on an even<br />

footing,” she said.<br />

Along with Debbie Delany<br />

and Jenna Huffam, Orchard<br />

launched the ‘Supporting Sisters/<br />

Tuahine Tautoko’ to empower<br />

women and their periods.<br />

“You have to empower<br />

women,” Orchard said.<br />

“We want to include everybody.<br />

It’s not about what nationality<br />

you are, what ethnicity you<br />

are – it’s for everyone.”<br />

In their mission to include<br />

every woman, they provide a<br />

wide range of products, through<br />

various donations, ranging from<br />

maternity, regular pads and tampons,<br />

super pads and tampons,<br />

and liners.<br />

The initiative has been running<br />

for about a year now, but<br />

Orchard does not have numbers<br />

on how much product has gone<br />

through because the service<br />

that some people take a lot, while<br />

others take one or two.<br />

Community worker Sharyn<br />

Burnett said women were<br />

welcome in, with no shame or<br />

is confidential, and they don’t<br />

63<br />

measure<br />

x<br />

how many<br />

180<br />

women are<br />

coming in.<br />

However, she said they have received<br />

‘really good feedback’ and<br />

judgement.<br />

“When you’re older, things<br />

don’t happen as they should,”<br />

she said reciting a story about<br />

an older lady coming in because<br />

she’d been caught out.<br />

The Supporting Sisters initiative<br />

is not the first to identify a<br />

problem.<br />

It comes after the successful<br />

installation of a similar scheme<br />

by the Auckland Council and<br />

the non-profit organisation The<br />

Period Place.<br />

Earlier this year, the New<br />

Zealand Government joined<br />

Scotland and England to provide<br />

free sanitary products to primary<br />

and secondary schools.<br />

This came after a 2017 survey<br />

by KidsCan that showed 53.1 per<br />

cent of those interviewed found<br />

it difficult to access sanitary<br />

items due to cost at some point.<br />

Provided with the sanitary<br />

products are two pamphlets<br />

written by the Shirley Community<br />

Trust nurse to give some<br />

education for those who need it.<br />

“Some girls, if they’re not comfortable<br />

talking to their mums,<br />

or they’re on their own with<br />

their dad and he doesn’t know<br />

what to do, at least they can<br />

come to the centre and figure<br />

out what works for her and what<br />

doesn’t,” she said.<br />

•If you need sanitary<br />

products, or just need<br />

someone to talk<br />

to, the MacFarlane<br />

Neighbourhood Centre<br />

is open on Monday,<br />

Wednesday, and Friday,<br />

Sports funding award<br />

for Bromley School<br />

• By John Cosgrove<br />

DETAILING HOW Bromley<br />

School pupils would benefit<br />

from an injection of cash<br />

won the school a major sports<br />

funding award.<br />

When Bromley School principal<br />

Scot Kinley called a selection<br />

of pupils from the school into a<br />

special assembly there was first a<br />

sense of anticipation then plenty<br />

of excitement.<br />

‘‘They entered to find a<br />

videographer standing there in<br />

front of the TV,” Kinley said.<br />

“They soon got pretty excited<br />

when they discovered they were<br />

being filmed for an online presentation.”<br />

The children soon discovered<br />

their school had won a $10,000<br />

sports grant as the first ever<br />

South Island winner of AA Insurance’s<br />

Big Little Sponsorship.<br />

“It was a big surprise for the<br />

children, and everyone was<br />

further surprised when teacher<br />

Cathy Baker was selected for<br />

a tour of Eden Park at a later<br />

date,” he said.<br />

Because Auckland is in Level<br />

3, AA Insurance had to make<br />

the announcement a virtual one.<br />

The children gathered in<br />

their bubbles for the reveal<br />

party that began with a prerecorded<br />

video from Campaign<br />

PEDAL POWER: Bromley School principal Scot Kinley<br />

makes a smoothie on stage during the revel party held<br />

at the school to announce that they had won a $10,000<br />

sports funding grant.<br />

Ambassador former All<br />

Black Keven Mealamu, AA<br />

Insurance’s head of brand and<br />

marketing Melodie Vickars, and<br />

Eden Park chief executive, Nick<br />

Sautner.<br />

Organisers said they received<br />

over 3200 nominations from<br />

771 school nationwide and were<br />

impressed at how the Bromley<br />

nominations talked about<br />

providing more opportunities<br />

for students by upgrading<br />

sports equipment and using the<br />

funding to get teams to regional<br />

events.<br />

“Some very excited children<br />

talked about how the money<br />

could be used and then we all<br />

went outside for the reveal party<br />

which was held for the whole<br />

school during the morning tea<br />

break.<br />

“They had smoothie bikes<br />

on a stage and everyone had<br />

the chance make smoothies by<br />

human power and enjoying the<br />

party,” McKinley said.<br />

WINNING TEAM: Richmond Bowling Club’s women’s fours<br />

team, skippered by Bev Morel, retained the South Island<br />

women’s fours bowls crown. They are (from left) – Jan<br />

Shirley, Tania Woodham, Bev Morel and Theresa Woodham.<br />

Another South Island<br />

crown for Richmond<br />

RICHMOND CLUB’S women’s<br />

fours bowls team, skippered<br />

by Bev Morel, has retained the<br />

clubs’ South Island women’s<br />

fours bowls crown.<br />

At the Ashburton tournament,<br />

Morel’s team of of Jan Shirley,<br />

Theresa Woodham and Tania<br />

Woodham played in tricky<br />

wind conditions to record a<br />

21-15 victory over Julie Dalley’s<br />

Hornby Club team of Liz Rossiter,<br />

Kay Wallace and Sonia<br />

Butler.<br />

Dalley’s team had looked<br />

promising for the first 10 ends<br />

leading 12-6 but Morel’s team<br />

fought back as they had done in<br />

the previous tournament, buoyed<br />

by a four and a five on the 14 th<br />

and 16 th ends, to move away to a<br />

comfortable win by five shots by<br />

the 18 th end.<br />

This was the closest winning<br />

margin Morel had faced over the<br />

four matches her team played<br />

in during the tournament, her<br />

previous wins were 22-9, 21-13<br />

and 25-14.<br />

The annual club tournament<br />

attracted 44 entries from around<br />

the South Island.<br />

MARKET UPDATE | SUMMER IS COMING<br />

New Brighton Redevelopment Pushes Ahead<br />

Several small local developers are pushing ahead with smaller boutique developments, the first of several planned for<br />

the coastal suburb. Demolishing old run-down homes and making way for new beachside homes.<br />

Whilst developments in town have a lot of townhouses crammed onto a section with limited to no car parking spaces the<br />

developers in New Brighton are appealing to families, couples and anyone looking to downsize without compromising<br />

space, practicality and style.<br />

Two of the most thoughtful developments are Coastal Sands located at 143 & 144 Marine Parade and 50 Lonsdale Street<br />

overlooking the New Brighton Cricket grounds.<br />

Coastal Sands offer Contemporary two-bedroom, three-bedroom and four-bedroom architecturally designed apartments<br />

that allow for luxury modern living all offering garages and off-street parking.<br />

Four bedrooms - Offers over $1,050,000<br />

Three Bedrooms - Offers over $750,000<br />

Two Bedrooms - Offers over $640,000<br />

50 Lonsdale Street New Brighton’s newest boutique development offers elegance and beachside living on a familyfriendly<br />

street. These three bedroom HOMES are all set over two levels with the living on the ground level and bedrooms<br />

and two bathrooms on the first floor, with an additional guest toilet on the ground floor.<br />

All three bedrooms, two bathrooms, one car garage HOMES start from $685,000<br />

The renewed surge in interest from developers comes from the value on offer that so many builders and developers in<br />

Christchurch have overlooked in the past.<br />

With anchor projects such as the playground, He Puna Tai Moana Hot Pools, New Brighton Surf Life Saving Club as well<br />

as Shirley Boys High School and Avonside Girls High School there is an absolute surge in interest in living by the beach.<br />

Whilst locals know that New Brighton is the place to live and raise your family Fast forward two years from now and it<br />

will be sought after by people not only Citywide but also Nationwide.
