New

take on

match

of the

century

• By Fiona Ellis

REMEMBERED as the ‘match

of the century’ Canterbury’s bid

to break Auckland’s then record

of 25 successive Ranfurly Shield

defences on September 14, 1985

was in disarray at halftime when

the challengers led 24-0.

However, before a feverish

crowd of 53,000, many of whom

converged on the sideline before

the old embankment at Lancaster

Park, Canterbury made a

stirring comeback, scoring four

unanswered tries to bridge the

gap to 28-23.

A thrilling contest ended

controversially – in a one-eyed

Cantabrians view – when John

Kirwan punched the ball dead

as Craig Green sought a potentially

match-winning try. Bob

Francis then blew the fulltime

whistle with time, allegedly, still

on the clock.

Peter Harper missed out on

the drama that afternoon, but

36 years later he has brought

the excitement surrounding the

match back to life.

The Cotswold School teacher

and colleague Saskia Sandford cowrote

the school play, Saturday

Night’s Fever, staged last week.

The play follows rugby fan

Barry Room as he attempts to

overcome obstacles and get to

the match.

Property,

rubbish

bins top

residents’

query list

• By Fiona Ellis

OBTAINING property

information is the top reason

for people in the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board area to reach out to the

city council, but uncollected bins

remain an issue.

A ticket report has revealed a

breakdown of issues that residents

contacted the city council about

between September 20 and October

19.

In that time, 1680 tickets, or

jobs, were completed within an

average of 3.7 days.

Incidents fell in a range of

categories, including transport,

wheelie bins, property information

and Three Waters council

assets.

Property file requests came

out on top with 147 tickets, while

complaints about missed bin collections

or damages bins placed

second and third, with 142 and

140 tickets respectively.

Bin issues have been an ongoing

theme of ticket reports in the area.

For example, in the ticket

report for July 21 to August 19,

uncollected bins were also the

second-largest issue, with 130

tickets issued.

Low noise asphalt delayed

A PLAN to cover the new

Northern Corridor motorway

in low noise asphalt has

been delayed due to Covid

disruptions.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport

Agency had planned to add the

top coating of the low noise

asphalt to the motorway later

this month, but ongoing supply

chain disruptions have delayed

some of the materials.

James Caygill, NZTA’s

director regional relationships,

said the delay is due to a holdup

in getting one of the key

ingredients for the top coat –

epoxy resin – from the United

States.

“We have recently become

aware that Covid-related

shipping problems have delayed

us getting the epoxy here as

planned,” Caygill said.

“We are sorry about this delay,

given the concerns of nearby

residents.”

He said the shipping delay

is part of the Covid-19 supply

chain disruptions being

experienced world-wide.

The epoxy gives the low noise

asphalt a significantly longer life

and maintains its noise reducing

powers for longer.

“We did have the option to

use a low noise asphalt without

epoxy, but this coating would

only last for up to eight years

instead of 30-plus years with

epoxy,” Caygill said.

SUPPLY ISSUES: The low noise asphalt top coating for the Northern Corridor has been

delayed.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

“We know Redwood residents

living closest to the motorway

will be disappointed about this

delay, but we hope they can

see a short delay now will reap

benefits longer term.”

The remaining chip sealing

work on the CNC has been

postponed until the epoxy

arrives.

At this stage, Caygill says the

delay is likely to be a “month or

two, into the New Year.”

He said NZTA still hopes

to complete all the low noise

surfacing work for the entire

motorway, from Cranford St to

the Waimakariri Bridge, and

along QEII Drive, between Main

North Rd and the Innes Rd

roundabout, by April next year.

Jayne and I would like to thank you for the work you’ve done to get us where

we are today. Bit of a blur really. Every step in the process has gone into

achieving the result today that exceeded our expectations. The detail and

professionalism has been on point. Staging, photography, the video along

with the marketing campaign all leading to a great property to present to

the market. These aspects all set the scene perfectly for the open homes and

sure there will be a few celebratory drinks later in the week.

SHOWTIME: Cotswold School pupils perform a dance number as part of

the school production last week.

Ranfurly Shield was big

part of Christchurch

Peter

Harper

• From page 1

The work draws on

Harper’s own memories as

a student in Christchurch

who enjoyed following

rugby.

“The

Ranfurly

Shield

was a big

part of

Christchurch.

I just

remember

the

big, huge

crowds.

“I was lucky to be a part

of it.”

However,

on

the day of

the game,

he was out

of town,

visiting

Saskia

Sandford

family in

Nelson.

His idea

of a story about a quest to

attend the game had been

• From page 1

In the most recent

report, 53 per cent (967) of

residents chose to report

concerns by phone, email

and walk-in, while 47 per

cent (851) did so online

through Snap Send Solve

and Hybris Online.

But, at the conclusion of

the report last month, 525

tickets were still open or

not completed.

The ticket report was

included in the agenda for

this week’s community

board meeting.

It comes as the city

council is seeking

residents views on a

flexible wheelie bin system

“bubbling away” for a

while, Harper said.

The production also

included songs, dancing

and pop culture from the

era.

Teacher

Ashleigh

Macdonald

coorganised

the play.

About a

Gary

Tibbotts

term-anda-half

of

rehearsal

time had gone into staging

the production, she said.

Although the show

had a cast of about 250

pupils – the entire senior

school – it came together

well.

“The kids were just great

. . . they were all so excited

to put on a show.”

For Gary Tibbotts, the

performance brought back

memories.

“I was a policeman in

those days and I was on

that would allow

people who choose to

down-size their bins to

pay less.

City council head of

three waters and waste

Helen Beaumont said

currently households get

standard size bins which

they pay for through their

rates.

“Under the new system

we are proposing, people

will be able to choose the

size of their red, green

and yellow wheelie bin,”

Beaumont said

“If they choose to go

small, they will pay less.”

More information

on the proposal will be

the sideline in uniform

that day, so I remember it

well,” he said.

A member of the

Canterbury Rugby Union

Historic

Trust,

Tibbotts

supplied

the school

with

photos,

videos and

memorabilia

of

the game.

“They used the film footage

on a big screen in the

background, and they used

some of the songs that

were played

at the time,” he said.

“I supplied them with an

Auckland rugby flag and a

Canterbury rugby flag and

they used [them] in the

production.”

He thoroughly enjoyed

the show, he said.

“It was nothing short of

brilliant.”

Gosh its fast approaching

that magical, happy, exciting

time of the year - the lead up

to Christmas and the summer

holiday season. I really love

December, although there is

never enough hours in the day

for all the things I need to get

done. While it’s a chaotic time

for us, it can also spell disaster

for our pets. Below are some

Christmas dangers to keep a

watch on.

Here is a list of FOODS to look

out for

1. Chocolate is poisonous

(tachycardia , seizures, vomiting, diarrhoea) so

make sure you don’t leave chocolate under the

tree or in easy to reach places as chances are, it

will be found. Chocolate contains the stimulant “

theobromine” which is lethal.

2. Christmas pudding and fruit cakes contain

raisins (grapes) which are toxic to your pets

kidneys leading to lethargy, vomiting and thirst.

3. Alcohol and caffeine are also toxic too. Alcohol

can be found also in Christmas cakes and as little

as one ounce of alcohol can kill a cat.

4. Avocados contain persin which causes

symptoms from vomiting and diarrhoea to

cardiac arrest.

5. Macadamia nuts cause vomiting, weakness

and tremors.

6. Onions and chives contain disulphides which

damage your pets RBCs.

7. Pits and seeds of plums, peaches and apples

have a substance that degrades to cyanide

which is toxic. Large stones can also cause

intestinal blockage.

8. Xylitol (an ingredient in chewing gum) causes

HYPOglycaemia in dogs and can lead to seizures

and liver failure in severe cases.

9. Corn cobs should never be allowed to be

chewed on as they will obstruct in the small

intestine requiring surgery.

10. Turkey, crackling, salmon skins, fatty meats,

sausages can all cause vomiting and diarrhoea

and may lead to pancreatitis.

11. Blue cheese contains

Roquefortine C, which is very

sensitive to dogs.

Other potential hazards

include

- Christmas decorations that

can be swallowed.

- SNOW Globes as they contain

“Anti Freeze”. 1 tsp is lethal to

a cat.

- Cover up cords used to light

the tree to avoid an electric

shock or any tongue/ gum

lacerationsl

- Secure the tree so if scaled by

your cat, it wont fall over and crush

the cat.

- Keep tree lights and candles away

from pets to avoid shocks and burns.

- Pine needles are toxic if ingested

and can cause internal puncture

wounds.

- Sparkley tinsel is attractive to cats,

but if ingested will require surgical

intervention as it gets bound up in the

gastrointestinal tract.

- Wrapping paper - if enough is ingested it will

obstruct the bowel.

Heading into this festive season, make sure you

have their vaccinations, flea and worming up

to date, so if a vacation stay is likely, their health

won’t be compromised. We

have a warm, well ventilated,

very clean and quiet upstairs

CATTERY if you fury friend

needs a place to be cared

for while you take a summer

holiday. Do thorough research

before selecting a a boarding

facility to make sure its the

right fit for your pet.

Avoid HEATSTROKE by never

leaving your dog in a car with

inadequate ventilation. Four

windows opened a fraction

doesn’t qualify. Dogs can also

suffer heatstroke left in a yard

with no water or shade, if exercising heavily in

the heat, dogs being muzzled for long periods in

the heat or being exposed to a hairdryer for too

long. Dogs with a restricted airway (such as the

brachycephalic breeds, pugs, boxers, bulldogs)

are at an increased risk again.

A dogs body temperature can elevate quickly

in a car getting up over 41 degrees. A dog in

heat stroke is agitated, breathing rapidly, has dry

dark red gums, can be disorientated and can

seizure. Animals have only a small amount of

sweat glands located in their footpads making

sweating minimal, so their primary way of

regulating body temperature is by panting. Safe,

controlled reduction in body temperature is

achieved by pouring cool water completely over

the dog, and then draping wet towels over and

taking regular temperatures.

Holiday house plants decorate a room but can

be lethal to pets. Most cause intestinal upsets

or renal disease. Some common plants to watch

for are lillies, Azaleas, Ivy, Mistletoe, Holly and

Chrysanthrmums.

Toys and batteries are a no go too. Ingested

they can cause renal damage and pancreatitis

if they contain Zinc. Intestinal blockage is also

a real possibility - not an expense you want on

Christmas morning at the After Hours.

There are more folks out and about enjoying

their dogs, so please keep social distancing, and

keep a close eye on doggie interactions. Dog

fight wounds can be real nasty

and require an anaesthetic to

debride and close.

Also make sure your pet is

MICROCHIPPED and registered

on the NZL database in case of

misadventure or wandering off.

On an aside, Macy (our 18

month old Lab) and Maximus

(our 7.5kg Ginger cat) both

underwent surgical operations

recently, successfully I

might add. Macy had

her big girl operation

- Ovariohysterectomy”

and Maximus got into

a nasty altercation with

a newcomer to the

neighbourhood, which

resulted in a corneal

laceration. Very lucky

his dad is the EYE vet.

Steve operated after work

one night by suturing a

conjunctival graft over the

lacerated cornea. Max now

has full sight back in both

eyes and no more “heats”

for Miss Macy.

Merry Christmas to you all and THANKYOU for

supporting McMaster & Heap during a trying and

difficult year living with Covid and trusting Steve,

Michele and our brilliant team with your special

furry friends, who we adore I might add.

Pupils get a taste of farm life

THE SHOW did go on,

in a sense, although the

Covid-19 restrictions forced

the cancellation of the NZ

Agricultural Show for a

second successive year.

School groups were still

able to experience farm life

at Canterbury Agricultural

Park last week, as they were

herded through the facility

with the skill associated with

the collies involved in the

dog trials.

“We are lucky we have a

huge park. There was an area

where people came in and

sanitise, they then went in

their school group and go

in a circular route for two

hours,” said show general

manager Tracy Ahern.

“They’d look at the animals

inside then go outside

and, while they had their

free lunch before exiting,

another group would start

the process.”

More than 2700 primary

and pre-school children

filtered through the venue

from Wednesday to Friday.

With the general public

unable to attend, Ahern was

delighted to offer the pupils a

taste of agricultural life in a

secure environment.

“It was really important

for us to still open the show

to as many young children as

possible, so we’ve been able

to achieve that by hosting

organised visits of schools.

“We’re so pleased to have

been able to offer them

something. Everything

we’re doing is free, which

is particularly tough for us

financially, but we have been

determined to do as much as

we possibly can,” Ahern said.

Scholarship win

for tech student

BURNSIDE HIGH School

student Braden Sole is one step

closer to achieving his dream of

becoming a biomedical engineer.

The Year 12 student intends to

combine his passion for STEM

(science, technology, engineering

and mathematics) subjects and

his drive to help people with help

from a $12,000 OCS

New Zealand and

First Foundation

scholarship.

Braden is heavily

involved with the

local St John youth

programme, which

led him to consider

biomedical engineering.

“This field would

allow me to do what

I love in terms of

technology and

engineering by creating devices

such as robotic prosthetic limbs

and organs,” Braden said.

“This area of study will help

me to achieve my overall goal of

making a positive difference in

the world.”

Braden is a Year 12 prefect, a

junior class leader and a leader

of the school robotics club. This

year he is also the St John District

Cadet of the Year in North Canterbury,

which sees him act as the

‘cadet voice’ for the district.

The three-to-four-year scholarships

include $12,000 to go

towards tuition fees, work experience

and access to a mentor

within their field of study.

Braden said the scholarship

will make a massive difference to

his future study at university.

“Engineering is by no

means a cheap course to

study and the money will

give me the freedom to

study with little worry

or concern about student

loans.”

“Instead, I will be able

to focus on doing what

I want to do, which is

helping people through

the power of science and

technology.”

Braden Sole ​

The calibre of scholarship

applications

in 2021 was so high that four

scholarships have been awarded

nationally.

OCS ANZ managing

director Gareth Marriott said:

“Braden’s involvement with St

John is worthy work and it’s clear

to see that he’s passionate about

a future that allows him to help

people and explore his love for

engineering at the same time. I’m

looking forward to following

his journey.”

All Black visit kicks off

sports star programme

ALL BLACK, Crusader and

Canterbury NPC player Cullen

Grace visited Mairehau School

last week to encourage pupils to

stay healthy and

get active.

Other primary

schools around

the country

are also being

surprised by visits

from sports stars

Cullen as part of the

Grace Zespri Young and

Healthy Virtual

Adventure, with Grace’s visit the

first in Christchurch.

The programme, which kicked

off this month, also provides

classes across the country with

an opportunity to discover the

world through their devices.

Along the way, they are met

virtually by sporting heroes –

including Ardie Savea, Kane

Williamson and Ameliaranne

Ekenasio – who will show them

around, share facts about local

history and give them fitness tips

along the way.

Like the sports star visits, the

virtual programme aims to instil

healthy habits such as exercising,

eating extra fruit and vegetables,

drinking more water, and reducing

leisure time spent on screens.

Young and Healthy Trust

founder Kim Harvey said the

virtual programme was adapted

to meet the challenge of Covid-19

disruptions.

“Every year we see fantastic

results with teachers, parents and

the kids themselves telling us

they have more energy, can focus

better in class and feel better, so

we really wanted to make

it work.”

No smooth journey back home to

Mountain biker Ethan

Rose is back home in

Merivale after competing

in his first UCI Junior

World Series. He talks

to Fiona Ellis about the

highlights

and challenges that

come with seven months

of competing in Europe

AS ETHAN ROSE tumbled to

the ground in a tangle of spokes

and handlebars, he knew the

under-19 UCI mountain bike

world championships race

was going to contain an extra

challenge.

Half a year after Rose won the

national under-19 championships

in February, he was in Italy,

competing in the world-class

event for the first time.

“Me and

some other guy

tangled bars

going over the

first 400 [metres]

and both

tumbled down

the bank,” the

Ethan Rose

18-year-old said.

Although

uninjured, once he was back on

track he realised he had lost precious

time.

“I came through the start

loop, I think, two minutes back

already, like 50th.”

Pushing hard throughout the

AIRBORNE: Ethan Rose hurdles an obstacle during a mountain bike race in Austria.

rest of the race, he made a good

recovery and finished in 12th.

“I looked at my lap times at

the end and I think they were

like top-five kind of lap times,

which was a bit frustrating,”

Rose said.

Although crowded tracks were

a hazard of the sport, it was not

one he often encountered on

home territory.

“There are way more people

[in Europe] and they’re all quick

people as well . . . the depth of

field is just massive.

“In New Zealand, you don’t

really get that because there’s not

that many of you.”

Rose returned home last

month after spending seven

months in Europe competing

in the junior world series, with

the world championships as the

main event.

Based in Switzerland, he

travelled around Europe to

compete in a variety of countries,

and had some good results, he

said. This included winning a

race in Austria, coming second

in Switzerland, and third in races

in Italy, France and Spain.

“I was pretty happy with

it. It was just good to get over

there, really. Last year was a

bit disappointing because we

couldn’t do anything.”

His plans to compete in

Europe last year were scrapped

after the outbreak of the

Covid-19 pandemic, which also

forced him to return to New

Zealand shortly after arriving in

the United States for what

would have been a fourcompetition

set.

“It was quite hard to know

what to do, really . . . it was

training but without purpose.”

Next year he will leave the

junior category and compete in

the under-23 age bracket and

would be eligible to compete in

the World Cup series, which was

his goal.

“It’s going to be a big step up

but it should be good.”

Older riders, who had made

the jump from junior champions

to World Cup competitors, were

on hand for advice.

“I do plenty of riding with

them. They kind of tell you how

it works.”

Training six days out of seven

for a weekly total of up to 25

hours, the sport was almost a

full-time job.

When not training or

competing, he also worked in

an engineering workshop that

allowed him a flexible schedule.

He got into mountain biking at

nine because Christchurch had a

good cross-country scene, he said.

“The first race I did was

up in the Port Hills, at the

Christchurch Singletrack Club.

They just had races every week,

so I belonged to them.”

Merivale for up and coming rider

PEDAL POWER: Ethan

Rose on the podium after

finishing third at the Coupe

de France de VTT Ussel in

August.

Right - Rose representing

New Zealand at the UCI

mountain bike world

championships.

Rose’s father was also a keen

rider, which encouraged him to

take up the sport.

“We used to always ride

together, and he took me to races

and did them as well.”

For years his father was the

quicker of the two, before Rose

eventually overtook him.

“I was maybe 16, so I think he’s

got over it now.”

On leaving school, Rose

struggled with the decision of

whether to pursue his racing

career or to study instead.

“It’s kind of hard, you’ve got to

bite the bullet and get over that.”

His career highlight so far

was winning the national

championships.

Arriving back in New Zealand

in October, he had already taken

part in the tour of Southland

earlier this month.

Coming from two weeks of

MIQ isolation, he enjoyed being

back in the saddle.

He was now working more,

aiming to save money for next

year’s wave of competitions.

Now living in Merivale, Rose

said the biggest challenge of his

cycling career was finding the

funds.

“It’s not hard to ride your

bike all the time, I enjoy it. It

doesn’t feel like I’m forcing it

or anything, it’s just getting the

money to do it.”

His dream was to follow in

the footsteps of other New

Zealand riders who were part of

professional European teams, he

said.

“It’s every rider’s dream to

get on a pro team and make it

your job – get paid to ride your

bike.”

2nd birthday celebrations

Specialist shoe store The Shoe Room in Upper

Riccarton is celebrating its second birthday, and to

mark the milestone they are running a week-long

discount promotion.

From Monday, November 22 through to Saturday,

November 27, customers are invited to participate

in a Lucky Dip, in which they will receive discount

vouchers ranging in value from 20 per cent to 50 per

cent for any purchase made on the day.

The locally owned business was established by

Podiatrist Charlotte Russell in November 2019 to

complement her podiatry clinic Feet First, located in

Main South Road.

Carol, left, and Maxine display examples of the

new summer collection at The Shoe Room.

Charlotte freely admits, it has been a hard two years.

“We opened just a few months before the first

lockdown and with the ongoing Covid restrictions it’s

been difficult. But we are still here and very excited to

celebrate our second birthday!”

Despite the pandemic-related problems retailers

have faced, The Shoe Room has established a loyal

customer base, which Charlotte attributes to the

service and personal attention customers receive

from the team.

“That’s our point of difference. The shop manager

Maxine and shop assistants Carol and Maree are

friendly and welcoming, so they are able to build

a rapport with customers by providing that allimportant

personal service and expertise, making

sure customers get shoes that fit correctly, are

comfortable and look fabulous on their feet.”

Now, with the arrival of spring, The Shoe Room has

received an exciting new range of footwear for the

warmer months ahead. The selection includes the

popular Archie jandals from Australia. Made from EVA

rubber, these jandals mould to the shape of the foot,

making them very comfortable and easy to wear, plus

they are available in several fresh, summery colours.

Among the other quality brands on display are

Frankie 4, also from Australia, and the ever-popular

Ziera, with many styles designed to accommodate

orthotics.

The Shoe Room is located at Unit 3, 355 Riccarton Road, opposite the Lone Star.

Opening hours are Monday 10am - 5.30pm, Tuesday to Thursday 9.30am - 5.30pm,

Friday 9.30am - 4.30pm, Saturday 10am - 3pm. Off street parking available.

Customers are offered discounts on any purchase

from the wide selection for The Shoe Room’s

birthday celebrations.

Customers are invited to choose their new summer

footwear during next week’s birthday celebrations

and take advantage of the Lucky Dip discounts.
