Hedge removal leaves

residents confused

• By Emily Moorhouse

A HEDGE removal put down

to ‘miscommunication’ has

left residents feeling robbed of

their ‘functional space’.

New Brighton’s Jennifer

Miller was shocked to see the

hedge at Blighs Garden, where

her grandchildren would play,

had been removed.

She said the space was a

beautiful, sheltered area

where children and residents

could go for a picnic or to

play sport, but now it was so

opened up it had lost those

qualities.

“Places are really important

and the stories they tell. I’m

not opposed to change when

it’s justified,” she said.

“I just don’t understand why

this was done.”

Coastal Ward Community

Board member Jo Zervos said

she was disappointed with the

removal of trees as the board

requested as much hedge

saved as possible.

She said the board was

presented with an original

plan to which they requested

changes such as taking less of

the hedge, which should have

come back to them for final

approval, but didn’t.

“A lot of people are unhappy.

I can see how the community

loved going there.”

Dogs attack more cats

• By Emily Moorhouse

CAT OWNERS are fed up

with their pets being hunted by

neighbourhood dogs without

consequences.

Two weeks ago Pegasus Post

reported on a cat called Roxy

that was attacked and killed by

what her owner David Pringle

described as two stray “staffycross

type” dogs.

After hearing about this attack

two Shirley residents came

forward with their experiences

losing cats and believed the

same dogs were responsible.

Kathryn Rutherford of Bellbrook

Cres lost two cats within

11 days late last year, and

suspected they were killed by

the same two dogs that attacked

Roxy.

On November 13, Rutherford

woke to what sounded like a cat

fight. When she looked out the

window she witnessed her cat

Slinky being attacked by a dog,

with another close by.

She described the attack like

a murder scene and said there

was blood everywhere.

“It was absolutely horrific.

Just knowing what fear she

would have been in,” she said.

“I just held her . . . I didn’t want

to let her go.”

Rutherford said Slinky

looked similar to what Roxy’s

owner described, with her head

half gone.

HORRIFIED: Kathryn Rutherford with her cat Sweety-pie.

Afterwards, Rutherford

brought her other cat Sweetypie

inside, fearing the same

would happen to her, but let

her out after a few days as she

wasn’t coping with being an

inside cat.

A week later, Rutherford’s

fears came true when Sweetypie

was attacked by what she

suspects were the same dogs.

Rutherford thought Sweetypie

had escaped the attack

without major injuries but she

later collapsed on the driveway

and was taken to the vet. She

died 12 hours later after suffering

from internal injuries and a

seizure.

Rutherford contacted the

council after each cat was attacked,

but was given the same

response each time – there

wasn’t enough evidence to identify

the dogs.

“It makes me angry,” she said.

“If it was a person attacking

these people then they would

be arrested and taken off the

streets.”

Two weeks ago, the city

council told Pegasus Post video

footage could be used as part

of an investigation if it met the

evidential requirements of being

able to clearly identify the

offending dog.

One of Orchard’s neighbour’s

had CCTV footage of the

suspected dogs wandering

around their property roughly

20 minutes before the attack

on Sweety-pie, but city council

staff couldn’t confirm it was the

same dogs.

Anntonia Orchard, Rutherford’s

neighbour, has also lost

a cat to what she said were the

same dogs.

She said between herself and

her neighbours they have lost

five cats in the last five years “to

these dogs”.

Orchard contacted the city

council after the death of her

cat and said they were “very

blasé” about the situation.

“It makes me really angry,”

she said. “There doesn’t seem

to be any consequences (for the

dog owners).”

Orchard said people should

be able to have pets without

worrying about them being

killed and feared for her seven

cats.

“I worry about them all

the time. I can’t keep them

indoors,” she said.

“Am I going to find them

ripped to bits?”

Orchard said it wasn’t just

cats that had been attacked, but

chickens, rabbits and sheep too

and she was thinking of starting

up a petition to stop the

attacks.

“What more do we as people

of Shirley have to do to keep

our pets safe?”

Confusion over

two projects

at garden

• From page 1

Coastal Ward community chairman

Kelly Barber said it was a bit

frustrating as the removal was down

to miscommunication about what

was expected from the project.

“The whole board is really disappointed,”

he said. “This is not what

we wanted to happen.”

A city council spokesperson

said there were two projects being

undertaken in the Blighs Garden

area at the same time by different

teams. The first project involved tree

removals and the second project involved

both hedge and tree removal.

“Treetech advised that they had

issued the start work notice, however,

due to a communication error

both teams took this to mean that

applied to their project as the work

had been packaged together. In fact

it only applied to the first project.”

This meant that unfortunately the

neighbouring properties were not

aware work on the hedge was about

to start.

Miller plans to write a letter to the

council requesting to have the hedge

replaced and to ask for justification

on why the removal occurred.

Zervos said the original plan to

remove some of the hedge came

from safety concerns about how

hidden the area was, especially for

kids playing unable to be monitored

by anyone.

“Hopefully the space can get

upgraded to a nicer area,” she said.

Epic 100km run to raise money for

teenager Enzo ends with a cuppa

• By Kristie Boland

ANTHONY MARTIN’S

100km run

in Diamond

Harbour took

him more than

23 hours to

complete, at

the end of it all

he wanted was

a cup of Irish

Anthony

Martin

tea.

On Canterbury

Anniversary

Day, Anthony Martin ran 100km

with a 3600m elevation to raise

money for a Redcliffs teenager

who suffered a spinal injury in

early 2020.

Enzo Halliburton, now 18,

was involved in a tragic swimming

accident in Moncks Bay in

January, 2020. While swimming

with friends, Enzo dived into the

water and did not resurface. He

had seriously injured his spine

and his friends had to perform

mouth-to-mouth resuscitation

and call for an ambulance.

Enzo suffered a C5-C7 spinal

injury and is now a tetraplegic.

Martin has a work colleague

whose son was with Enzo that

day. After hearing Enzo’s story,

Martin decided he wanted to do

ENDURANCE: Anthony Martin during his 100km run in Diamond Harbour.

something to help raise money

to go towards a specialised bike

for Enzo.

This was the first ultramarathon

distance Martin had

ran. During training, Martin

had what he described as a

“drawback” when he ruptured

his hamstring in two places, tore

the cartilage in his hip and had

to get his Achilles tendon reattached.

On the day of the run,

Martin joined in on part of the

Krayzie K’s ultra trail running

event. The temperature that day

was 27 deg C.

“Being an Irish lad, I’m not

built for heat,” said Martin.

The 100km run took him 23hr

38min. Thinking about Enzo

Enzo Halliburton

and what he had gone through is

what got Martin through those

last hours.

“Even in the worst pain that

I was in, it’s still a drop in the

ocean of the reality of being

tetraplegic,” he said.

When he finally crossed the

finish line at 8.25am on Saturday

morning, there was one thing on

Martin’s mind: “All I wanted was

a cup of tea, there was no tea [at

the finish line] so I drove to my

mates and he had some Irish tea

bags, it was perfect.”

Three new Avon River

bridge sites blessed

THE DALLINGTON Landing

and three new bridge sites in the

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor

were blessed last week.

The blessings were led by a

mana whenua representative,

signalling an important

milestone as the regeneration

area continued evolving into an

urban park asset for the city.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said work

on all four sites was on track to

being completed in the coming

months.

“It’s exciting to see these different

areas developing and to

see the vision of the Regeneration

Plan begin to come to life,”

he said.

“Work on the Dallington

Landing is nearing completion

and we’re hopeful that we’ll

be able to pull some of the

fences down before the

Christmas break, so people can

enjoy the parts area over the

holidays.”

Rutledge said the landing

won’t be completed by Christmas,

with final landscaping

to be finished early in the new

year, but wanted people to connect

with and explore the Avon

River over the summer break.

Construction of the three

pedestrian bridges is also progressing

well, with all three due

to be completed by mid-2022.

The Avondale bridge was in

place and the Medway St bridge

span has been lifted into position.

Abutment piling on the Snell

Pl bridge is also under way,

Rutledge said.

The Medway St and Snell Pl

bridges reinstate a pedestrian

and cycle connection across

the Avon River, which has been

missing since the earthquakes,

while the Avondale bridge will

provide a connection to the

future Eastern Reach wetland

restoration area.

The Dallington Landing and

three pedestrian bridges have

been funded by a $13.7 million

grant from the Christchurch

Earthquake Appeal Trust.

IN PLACE: The Medway St bridge has been reinstalled.

Second of three

bridges in place

THE RETURN of foot and cycle

access across the Ōtākaro Avon

River at Medway St is another

step closer after the new Medway

St Bridge span was successfully

lifted into place by crane on

Monday.

The original Medway St

bridge became a local symbol

of the 2011 earthquakes after it

was twisted and warped by the

shakes.

City council’s head of parks,

Andrew Rutledge said: “The

Medway St bridge is probably

the most iconic of the three

new bridges, as it reinstates an

important community connection

that’s been missing since the

earthquakes,” he said.

“Now that the Medway St

bridge is in place, contractors

will install pre-cast decking

panels, timber boardwalks and

asphalt approach ramps, and

landscape the area.”

Rutledge said once completed

the bridges will play an integral

role in the future City to Sea

Pathway that will follow

the river from Barbadoes St to

New Brighton.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Christmas is a great time for passing down recipes that are tried and true becoming

traditional family favourites. The owner of this recipe says her mum used to make

the pudding on Christmas Eve and would take the bowl and wooden spoon around

everyone in the house to stir the mixture and make a wish.

Make a Wish Christmas Pudding

You will need:

• 1 ½ tbsp butter

• 1 ½ tsp baking soda

• 1 ½ cups of boiling water

• 1 ½ cups flour

• 1 ½ cups mixed fruit or sultanas

• ¾ cup sugar

Method:

1. In a glass or stainless steel bowl,

melt the butter (over hot water)

and dissolve the baking soda.

2. Add the boiling water and

sugar.

3. When cool, add flour and

mixed fruit.

4. Stir all the ingredients together

and make a Christmas wish.

5. Cover bowl with a tea towel and

allow to stand overnight.

The next day:

• Place mixture into a greased

bowl or ice-cream container,

cover with tinfoil and place in a

pot of water, just deep enough

so the bowl doesn’t float.

• Boil pudding for four hours and

check regularly to make sure

the water has boiled dry. Top

up carefully with extra water if

required.

• Serve with heaps of Chantilly

cream!

Chantilly

Cream

You will need:

• 1 x bottle of cream

• ½ tsp vanilla essence

• 1 tbsp icing sugar to

sweeten

Method:

Put cream, vanilla essence

and icing sugar in a bowl and

whisk until light and fluffy with

softly formed peaks. Cover and

refrigerate until ready to serve.
