No need for your old bike?

A group is ready to repair it

• By John Cosgrove

A RECENT burglary and

an unprecedented demand

for restored bicycles has left

the Aranui Bike Fixup group

scrambling for old bikes to repair

and pass onto the community.

Founder Steven Muir said

the containers on their site at

the Breezes Rd Baptist Church

were “looking remarkably bare”

and following a recent break-in

and theft of seven bikes they are

looking for replacements.

“We have been restoring and

giving away a lot of bikes recently

but not that many have been coming

in,” he said.

He asks if anyone knows of

any bikes sitting unloved in the

back of a shed somewhere, can

people let him know and he will

collect them. He rides all over the

suburbs towing a specially-built

multi-bike trailer behind his own

bike.

“The response to our appeal

last week has been very good, I’ve

been out zipping around the town

picking up many bikes,” he said.

He believes the demand for the

restored bikes is due in part to

the lockdown when many people

went out for their daily exercises

and rediscovered cycling.

“We have a really good infrastructure

here for cyclists courtesy

of the council, but here in this

part of the city economics is also a

big factor, it’s very cheap to travel

by bike, it’s flat and you can go

large distances easily.”

NEXT BLOOD DRIVE

CYCLING AHEAD: Due to demand the Aranui Bike Fixup group is scrambling for old bikes to repair and pass onto the

community. Steven Muir is also on the lookout for more volunteers to help out on the Breezes Rd Baptist Church site.

Successful skip-filling event

In Brief

• By John Cosgrove

A STEADY stream of rubbish

arrived by the car load, quickly

filling the skips at the Dallington

Residents Association annual

skip day on Saturday.

Association chairwoman Bebe

Frayle said in spite of the delay

from it’s usual September date

due to Covid restrictions, they

had a great response.

“We had the first skip full

by about 9.30am, and were all

wrapped up by noon, with both

skips full and a trailer load of

scrap metal,” she said.

Frayle said many in the community

took the opportunity to

get rid of a few bits and pieces

that didn’t fit in the red bin.

“We also ran a trade table and

had some good finds including

a slot car set, almost new books,

gardening gear, exercise equipment,”

she said.

DRA committee member

Catherine Harrison said because

it was such a popular event,

they limited it this year to only

car loads of in-organic waste to

allow more people in the community

to take advantage of the

free service.

“It’s so popular we are

considering adding a second

skip day possibly next year,” she

said.

The skip day was part of a

weekend of rubbish clearing

with the DRA also holding a

‘clean-up Dallington day’ on

TREATMENT PLANT STILL

OPERATIONAL

In spite of the fire damage to the

trickling filters at the Christchurch

Wastewater Treatment Plant

in Bromley earlier in the week,

council staff have assured residents

the plant can still accept the full

sewage flow from the city. Staff

said once the fire was officially

extinguished they will be

undertaking a full investigation as

to what caused it. The fire started

on Monday afternoon, reportedly

on the roof of trickling filter No

2, which then spread across to

trickling filter No 1. Nearly 50

firefighters were working on the

fire at its peak.

COVID TESTING

ENCOURAGED

The Whānau Ora Community

Clinic at 250 Pages Rd, Wainoni,

is open for free, communitybased

Covid-19 testing. The hours

are 9am-4pm, seven days a week.

With Covid-19 detected in two

recent wastewater samples, health

authorities are urging anyone

with Covid-19 symptoms – no

matter how mild – to get tested.

In Brief

TENNIS CLUB HOPING

FOR A BRIGHT FUTURE

The Shirley Tennis Club has

applied to the city council for

permission to install eight new

lighting poles around its courts

in the Richmond Park area. The

club will source all necessary

resource and building consents

before commencing installation

of the lighting system. The

proposed court lights will be

used only on weekdays during

specific months between the

hours of 4.30pm and 9pm, and

require automatic shutoff at 9pm.

NO CUTBACKS TO

SCHOOLS PROGRAMMES

The Graeme Dingle Foundation

Canterbury region general

manager Chris Davis has assured

schools in the district that in

spite of a funding shortfall of

$60,000 this year there will be no

cutbacks to their programmes.

“It has been very tight this year

but a lot of people have come

to the party to help us out with

the shortfall,” Davis said. The

foundation helps 3776 students

each week in Canterbury. Its

Kiwi Can programmes for

children aged five to 12 years

teach values such as integrity and

respect, and help build resilience.

The programmes are used at

Banks Ave School, Linwood

North Primary, and Linwood

College.

Children taught to repair own bikes

• From page 1

Muir said the Aranui Bike

Fixup group has only been in

operation for just over a year

This engineer/physicist and

passionate cyclist felt there was

a need out this side of town to

repair and restore bikes.

“It all started after talking with

a police officer,” he said.

‘To have them stolen

like that was pretty

heart-breaking.’

– Steven Muir

The policewoman was talking

with school teachers who had

asked their pupils to write about

the activities they did during the

holidays, but they discovered

most couldn’t because they could

not get out and about.

“So she wanted to get kids on

bikes so they could get out to the

beach and other places nearby,

so they gave us a few bikes which

we restored and donated,” Muir

said.

“The catalyst in forming the

group was when friends moved

here from India and gave us their

container.

“The Baptist Church on Breezes

Rd had just been repaired

post-earthquake, so we now had

a venue and secure storage for

the tools, bikes and parts.

“Another container was

donated and a whole bunch of

volunteers have helped restore

over 300 bikes which we have

given away to the community.”

The group set up the Christchurch

Bike Library with two

covered trailers full of bikes that

community groups can borrow

to go out riding.

“Sadly someone broke into one

of the trailers and seven bikes

were stolen, they used an angle

grinder to cut the latch on the

back, it was pretty demoralising

as we had all put a lot of work

into the initiative, finding and

restoring the bikes and to have

them stolen like that was pretty

heart-breaking,” Muir said.

The group is still trying to find

suitable bikes to replace the stolen

ones and get the service back

up and running again.

Another self-help initiative

the group are undertaking is

helping young children and

teenagers to learn the skills to

repair and maintain their own

bikes.

“They come along and we

show them what to do, every five

weeks they get another tool to

build up their own tool kit.

“People can come along and

use our tools and parts to fix

their bikes, learn skills on how

to restore bikes, as our aim is to

share the restored bikes we fix

with the community.

“If you have unused bikes that

you would like to donate we

would love to receive them,” he

said.

Celebrating 75 years with class reunion

• By John Cosgrove

SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS ago in

1946, a group of young school

girls assembled for their first term

as third formers at Avonside Girls’

High School on its original site on

Avonside Drive.

Now 14 surviving members of

that original class will be holding

a 75th-reunion function at the

Richmond Working Mens Club

on Saturday at 11.45am.

The classmates, known as the

‘The Girls’, formed a lunch club in

2000 after catching up at the 50threunion

of their third-form year.

There were about 150 women

at that reunion but over time the

number has dwindled down to a

much smaller 14.

Organiser Fay Anderson said

she hopes as many of the women

aged in their late 80s and early

90s will be able to make it to the

reunion.

“We have been holding yearly

meetings but this will be the 75th

and I think it might be the last

one as we are not getting any

younger,” she said.

She said the girls meet and chat

about their school days, and how

their lives have progressed since.

“The original school was on the

banks of the Avon River and it

was in such a lovely setting,” she

said.

There will be a cake cutting to

mark the anniversary and Fay said

she is hoping there are no further

lockdowns to ruin the occasion.

ALL TOGETHER: At the

70th reunion of the

Avonside Girls’ High

School third form class

of 1946. Eighteen of

the class made it to the

party.

Right – Fay Anderson’s

original form class photo

from the late 1940s.

called her friends in the third form

at Avonside Girls in the late 1940s.

State-of-the-art clubhouse for

• By John Cosgrove

FOR THE third time since its

inception in July 1910, the New

Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club

has a new clubhouse.

And this one has all the bells

and whistles needed to make it

a truly integrated community

space.

At its official opening on Sunday,

hundreds of visitors, dignitaries,

current and former club

members trooped through the

doors of the new purpose-built

facility, to see what the future of

surf lifesaving in New Brighton

had become.

Club member Matt Nash said

it was a good opening and the

building was well-designed

with everything serving a purpose.

“This time we have a building

designed for the future, made

with materials that are designed

to last and it’s got all the bells

and whistles in it to help us as

we serve the community,” he

said.

The club – the oldest surf

lifesaving club in New Zealand

– had been forced to continue

operating out of its previous

quake-damaged building while it

sourced funding and consent for

the new complex over the past

decade.

Club committee member Stu

Bryce said it was great to finally

Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club. The ribbon cutting was conducted by club

patron Dave Taylor, assisted by Mayor Lianne Dalziel (left) and the MP for

Christchurch East Poto Williams.

see the $3.6 million building

formally opened.

“The new design allows people

to sit, and be sheltered as they

watch what’s happening out to

sea, as well as providing a number

of community spaces for any

community groups wanting to

use them for classes or any type

of function.

“With patrols starting next

weekend it was good to get it

opened before the new season

started,” Bryce said.

“Lots of people came in during

the opening, asking questions

and learning about what we are

doing here, some even asked to

join.”

He said the biggest thing they

wanted to do was not put a noose

around the neck of the next

generation of club members with

the building,

“We built it to last 50-plus

years with materials designed to

wear, the specially treated pine

used on the walls will eventually

silver up nicely but won’t decay

in a hurry,” Bryce said.

Some of the new features

incorporated by the club in the

design include cameras scanning

the beach to count the number of

people there at any time.

“Our patrols are based on

numbers and this new ability

allows us to record the numbers

of people there on the beach

both during patrol hours and

also after hours so that we can

plan to increase or move our

coverage to suit the conditions,”

Bryce said.

Celeste Donovan

focused on community

engagement

Celeste Donovan, newly elected

Christchurch City councillor

Newly elected Christchurch City

councillor Celeste Donovan is aware of

the challenges ahead in her new role,

coming into the role two years into a

three-year term.

Donovan says, despite the challenges,

she is looking forward to bringing a fresh

perspective to the Council table. With

strong links to the community through

her involvement as chair of a residents’

and local organisation, as well as

experience working at a government level.

She aims to bring her skills at working

with the community, strategic thinking,

and advocacy skills to her role as Coastal

representative.

Donovan is aware residents have

expressed concerns about delays to

remedy earthquake repairs to core

infrastructure, frustration at the slow

progress of Brighton’s retail revitalisation

and future planning to address the

impacts of sea-level rise.

“My focus is to meet and engage with

our community members. To hear their

voices and to spearhead a new vibe for

the area. This is about working to address

the ongoing challenges and to understand

group concerns and areas of interest,

whilst also focusing on the many positive

developments that are happening. This

includes the development of high-quality

residential housing which will likely drive

further investment in this business district

and help revitalise the commercial core”.

She hopes to have some part in

shaping a positive future for residents

by addressing the issues that face

them, rather than leaving it to the next

generation.

One of her focal points will be working

with communities from Brooklands

to Southshore to engage with the citywide

conversation on Coastal Hazards

Adaptation Planning Programme and

Coastal Hazards Plan Change.

Making sure the community and

residents are informed with updates and

current information is vital in rebuilding

the trust.

“It’s important that communities feel

the engagement process is genuine,”

Donovan says. “It is important we find

new ways to build trust and to ensure that

communities are engaged early in these

conversations, so they feel they have a real

say in the future of their area.”

As an independent, Donovan says, she

is looking forward to working across

the table to progress these important

issues, with her focus on working across

personality and political divides to get

things done.

Have you tried the ‘Level One

experience’ in New Brighton?

Top notch is the feedback patrons are leaving on sites

around the internet about their experience at the Level One

Craft Beer & Coffee Bar and Restaurant. A staple location

in New Brighton on Marine Parade, this restaurant and

bar consistently provides delicious food and beverage, an

ambience worth lingering in, and service you tell your friends

about.

This winning combination together create, what has been

coined as the ‘Level One Experience’ and ‘Your Local’ by their

guests.

Nestled among a dynamic co-working space, event venue

and lounge, the restaurant always has an infectious buzz.

Ocean views, large patios, and terrace areas, decorate the

setting and in the evening majestic sunsets provide a lavish

backdrop. Level One is a location where food, community

and entertainment come together in New Brighton.

Opened in 2018, the purpose and commitment behind

Level One is to have positive, social, and economic impact

on the Coastal Ward. And their ethos rings true now more

than ever. The focus and desire of owner Rebecca Tavete and

the entire Level One team is to create an experience worth

returning to.

Shea Andrews - Duty Manager extraordinaire says, “There’s

nothing like the buzz we get from delivering high standards of

service and awesome food. We are like a family here at Level

One and we are so proud and passionate about creating good

vibes”.

Stop by and try out their new menu items as they are

introducing seafood. Their special board will announce the

item of the day, such as ceviche or mussel pots.

Enjoy live music every Friday night, and don’t forget they

host an open mic event every Tuesday. Check for those

specific details on their Facebook page.

They have a secret to let out of the bag, Coming Soon, Level

One is opening another Lounge directly off the patio with a

primary focus on cocktails and tapas.

Now is the time for you to make your booking and try the

‘Level One Experience’. A place locals can call home.

Level One Restaurant & Bar

holidays locally

Level One’s boutique bar has

launched a series of signature

cocktails paying homage to the art

of mixology in preparation for its

new Cocktail Lounge opening this

Summer when the cocktail list will grow to

cover new inventions and the classics.

The food menu is thoughtfully curated and

appeals to most palates seeking sour, bitter,

salty and sweet. Seafood will be featured

chardonnay, ceviche and mussel pots on the

sun drenched terrace.
