Residents call for name change

of new Avondale foot bridge

• By John Cosgrove

CONFUSION OVER a new foot

bridge’s name has prompted calls

for its renaming.

The call for a new name comes

after a barrage of online comments

and queries by residents

groups and individuals seeking to

rename the new Avondale footbridge

because of the confusion

caused by there already being an

Avondale bridge nearby.

Residents from Avonside, Burwood

east and Shirley are being

asked to come up with a possible

name for one of the three new

pedestrian and cycle bridges over

the Avon River scheduled for completion

early next year.

The Medway St and Snell Pl

bridges replace previously earthquake-damaged

bridges, and will

reconnect the pedestrian/cycle

route that runs across the Avon

River, while the new Avondale

bridge provides a connection to

the future Eastern Reach wetland

restoration area.

Burwood East Residents Association

secretary Gae Johns said

the new Avondale footbridge was

originally called the Aranui bridge

on regeneration plans but, when

referred to later in council documents

it’s name had changed to

Avondale.

“This is very confusing as there

is already an Avondale bridge

there,” she said.

“It is a bridge which enables

another connection between red

zone areas of two suburbs, namely

Burwood and Avondale.

• Turn to page 4

CONNECTION: The new Avondale foot and cycle

bridge is on site, but the structure still has a bit of

work to be completed on its approaches.

New liquor outlet prompts calls

for city-wide alcohol policy

• By John Cosgrove

CALLS FOR a city-wide local

alcohol policy are mounting

following the approval of the

latest off-licence application.

In spite of 50 written objections

and presentations from concerned

citizens and community

board members, a new Bottle-O

off-licence will

open within the

next six months on

Prestons Rd.

Coastal-Burwood

Community

Kelly

Barber

Board chairman

Kelly Barber

said he was not

surprised by

the decision and while the city

council has some “good by-laws”

governing public drinking, it is

time for it to step up and create a

city-wide alcohol policy.

He said without such a policy,

which many other cities have,

it is basically impossible for a

community to stop a liquor outlet

from being opened.

Under the Sale and Supply

of Alcohol Act 2012, councils

can develop local alcohol policies

(LAPs) to influence the location,

number and trading hours of

businesses licensed to

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

objections.

sell alcohol.

Barber and fellow community

board member Linda Stewart

attended the hearing and told

the Christchurch District Licensing

Committee that the board

doesn’t usually comment on

applications for new licences or

renewals, but in this case there

was “surprise and concern” from

the community.

He said the board was concerned

about the number of alcohol

outlets within a five-kilometre

radius of the proposed site.

Barber told Pegasus Post:

“People told me it was very hard

to stop a bottle store opening and

a lot of the information we heard

[at the hearing] was against

the application.

“I feel that if a community

wants to stop something in their

area, their opinions should be

taken into consideration.

“Without the city having a

guiding alcohol policy, at the end

of the day all they are doing is

looking at the point of law and

the point of law pretty much says

you can open a bottle store as

long as you fulfil the criteria,” he

said.

The criteria includes trading

only between the hours of 9am

and 10pm, and no alcohol to be

sold or supplied on Good Friday,

Easter Sunday, Christmas Day

or before 1pm on Anzac Day.

Other discretionary conditions

include no advertising of alcohol

products on the outside of the

premises.

City council community support,

governance and partnerships

acting head Matt McLintock

said the number of written

objections was considered at the

hearing.

“One of the objectors appeared

and was heard, along with

the local community board

chairman [Barber]and one of

their members [Stewart] who

presented their submission

in person at the hearing to

convey the concerns of the local

community.

“The application for an offlicence

was granted subject to

conditions as detailed in the

decision,” McLintock said.

The application was not

opposed by the district licensing

inspector, the police or the

medical officer of health.

Jordan’s community garden idea

grows after getting green light

• By John Cosgrove

HELPING OTHERS is a calling

for Chisnallwood Intermediate

pupil Jordan Wilson.

If he’s not helping his grandfather

clear fallen branches from

his farm, or giving his dad a hand

around the house, the 12-year-old

is helping others at school.

In June, while cycling from his

home in Shirley to school via the

Avondale red zone, Jordan had a

brainwave.

Why not get a small part of the

huge open spaces there and build

a garden to feed those in need.

“I wanted to do something, so

I started asking people online

what I had to do to get a small

plot of land there to grow vegetables

on – a community garden.”

Jordan said he was eventually

put onto Land Information New

Zealand.

“It turned out to be a lot of

paperwork but everyone loved

the idea,” he said.

His proposal was given the

green light by LINZ in July, and

Jordan became the youngest person

to be granted a temporary

land use licence for the Avon

River corridor regeneration area.

(Since 2016, LINZ has made

former residential red zone land

available to community groups

and organisations for more than

3000 short-term projects, events

or land uses.)

From then, Jordan’s small

community garden project

grabbed the attention of sponsors,

community organisations

and high profile supporters, who

donated materials and time to

help him achieve his goal.

“City councillor Phil Mauger

donated the timber, Citycare

staff helped me construct the

first four garden beds,” Jordan

said.

When the soil for the beds was

delivered, Jason spent a tiring

afternoon moving it by himself

from the side of the road to the

COSGROVE ​

beds in a wheelbarrow.

Now there are six beds on site,

and Jordan is propagating plants

at home for the coming growing

season.

“I’m hoping to have tomatoes,

carrots, lettuces and cauliflowers

in the first crop. Now that we

have a water system in place I

will soon be transferring them to

the beds,” he said.

Water was always going to be

an issue, as all infrastructure has

been removed from red zone land.

Jordan’s father Matthew

Wilson said his hard-working

son spends hours each day either

tending the beds after school

or online answering the many

emails and messages he gets

from his Avondale Community

Garden Facebook page.

“His grandmother even came

down from Blenheim to help

him with his seed propagation

over the school holidays,” Wilson

said.

Chisnallwood Intermediate

principal Justin Fields said setting

up the garden was a huge

undertaking for anyone, let

alone a year 8 student.

“Jordan set up this garden

because he wants to give to the

community.

“Even when faced with

bureaucracy, he pushed on and

won. He shows that any tamariki

with leadership can find a place

in this world,” Fields said.

Jordan said: “It feels good to

be doing something good for the

community, and now the hard

work starts as I have to figure out

how to distribute the food once

it’s grown.”

Group has large range of women’s products

• By Tina Grumball

IF THERE’S anything the

women of the MacFarlane Park

neighbourhood centre can do

better than friendly smiles or

great baking and coffee, it’s

fighting period poverty.

After struggling with it herself,

and listening to fellow women,

Shirley resident Toni Orchard

set out to provide another option

than staying at home or lining

themselves with bulk rolls of

toilet paper.

“That’s why I started it – to

make sure everyone’s on an even

footing,” she said.

Along with Debbie Delany

and Jenna Huffam, Orchard

launched the ‘Supporting Sisters/

Tuahine Tautoko’ to empower

women and their periods.

“You have to empower

women,” Orchard said.

“We want to include everybody.

It’s not about what nationality

you are, what ethnicity you

are – it’s for everyone.”

In their mission to include

every woman, they provide a

wide range of products, through

various donations, ranging from

maternity, regular pads and tampons,

super pads and tampons,

and liners.

The initiative has been running

for about a year now, but

Orchard does not have numbers

on how much product has gone

judgement.

“When you’re older, things

don’t happen as they should,”

she said reciting a story about

an older lady coming in because

she’d been caught out.

The Supporting Sisters initiative

is not the first to identify a

problem.

It comes after the successful

installation of a similar scheme

by the Auckland Council and

the non-profit organisation The

Period Place.

Earlier this year, the New

Zealand Government joined

Scotland and England to provide

free sanitary products to primary

and secondary schools.

This came after a 2017 survey

by KidsCan that showed 53.1 per

cent of those interviewed found

it difficult to access sanitary

items due to cost at some point.

Provided with the sanitary

products are two pamphlets

written by the Shirley Community

Trust nurse to give some

education for those who need it.

“Some girls, if they’re not comfortable

talking to their mums,

or they’re on their own with

their dad and he doesn’t know

what to do, at least they can

come to the centre and figure

out what works for her and what

doesn’t,” she said.

Sports funding award

for Bromley School

• By John Cosgrove

DETAILING HOW Bromley

School pupils would benefit

from an injection of cash

won the school a major sports

funding award.

When Bromley School principal

Scot Kinley called a selection

of pupils from the school into a

special assembly there was first a

sense of anticipation then plenty

of excitement.

‘‘They entered to find a

videographer standing there in

front of the TV,” Kinley said.

“They soon got pretty excited

when they discovered they were

being filmed for an online presentation.”

The children soon discovered

their school had won a $10,000

sports grant as the first ever

South Island winner of AA Insurance’s

Big Little Sponsorship.

“It was a big surprise for the

children, and everyone was

further surprised when teacher

Cathy Baker was selected for

a tour of Eden Park at a later

date,” he said.

Because Auckland is in Level

3, AA Insurance had to make

the announcement a virtual one.

The children gathered in

their bubbles for the reveal

party that began with a prerecorded

video from Campaign

PEDAL POWER: Bromley School principal Scot Kinley

at the school to announce that they had won a $10,000

sports funding grant.

Ambassador former All

Black Keven Mealamu, AA

Insurance’s head of brand and

marketing Melodie Vickars, and

Eden Park chief executive, Nick

Sautner.

Organisers said they received

over 3200 nominations from

771 school nationwide and were

impressed at how the Bromley

nominations talked about

providing more opportunities

for students by upgrading

sports equipment and using the

funding to get teams to regional

events.

“Some very excited children

talked about how the money

could be used and then we all

went outside for the reveal party

which was held for the whole

school during the morning tea

break.

“They had smoothie bikes

on a stage and everyone had

the chance make smoothies by

human power and enjoying the

party,” McKinley said.

RICHMOND CLUB’S women’s

by Bev Morel, has retained the

clubs’ South Island women’s

fours bowls crown.

At the Ashburton tournament,

Morel’s team of of Jan Shirley,

Theresa Woodham and Tania

Woodham played in tricky

wind conditions to record a

21-15 victory over Julie Dalley’s

Hornby Club team of Liz Rossiter,

Kay Wallace and Sonia

Butler.

Dalley’s team had looked

promising for the first 10 ends

leading 12-6 but Morel’s team

fought back as they had done in

the previous tournament, buoyed

by a four and a five on the 14 th

and 16 th ends, to move away to a

comfortable win by five shots by

the 18 th end.

This was the closest winning

margin Morel had faced over the

four matches her team played

in during the tournament, her

previous wins were 22-9, 21-13

and 25-14.

MARKET UPDATE | SUMMER IS COMING

New Brighton Redevelopment Pushes Ahead

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

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

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

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

space, practicality and style.

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

overlooking the New Brighton Cricket grounds.

Coastal Sands offer Contemporary two-bedroom, three-bedroom and four-bedroom architecturally designed apartments

that allow for luxury modern living all offering garages and off-street parking.

Four bedrooms - Offers over $1,050,000

Three Bedrooms - Offers over $750,000

Two Bedrooms - Offers over $640,000

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

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

and two bathrooms on the first floor, with an additional guest toilet on the ground floor.

All three bedrooms, two bathrooms, one car garage HOMES start from $685,000

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

Christchurch have overlooked in the past.

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

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

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

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