Pupils’ video a bid to make<br />

safer routes to school<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

PUPILS HAVE made a video<br />

and lobbied a community<br />

board in a bid to make roads<br />

near their school safer.<br />

And their pleas seem to be<br />

working.<br />

St Martins School put<br />

a proposal forward to the<br />

Cashmere-Spreydon Community<br />

Board board about<br />

the dangers of crossing roads,<br />

particularly at the Centaurus<br />

Rd roundabout.<br />

Pupils raised concerns of<br />

drivers not stopping or seeing<br />

children on their way to school<br />

during peak traffic hours.<br />

Their solutions were to bring<br />

the school sign closer to the<br />

entrance of the school and<br />

introduce zebra stripes on their<br />

kea crossing.<br />

Board member Tim Scandrett<br />

said they met with the<br />

school and discussed options to<br />

increase road safety which were<br />

passed on to traffic engineers.<br />

Some of these options included<br />

increasing signage and<br />

paintwork to make the roads<br />

look busier which would hopefully<br />

slow cars down.<br />

He said the board have<br />

been trying to ban U-turns<br />

and decrease the speed limit<br />

around schools and was<br />

hoping to have some plans in<br />

place for St Martins School by<br />

Christmas.<br />

Epic fundraising run for Enzo<br />

In Brief<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

ANTHONY MARTIN’S 100km<br />

run in Diamond Harbour took<br />

him more than 23 hours to<br />

complete, and at the end of it all<br />

he wanted was a cup of Irish tea.<br />

On Canterbury<br />

Anniversary<br />

Day,<br />

Anthony Martin<br />

ran 100km<br />

with a 3600m<br />

elevation to<br />

raise money<br />

for a Redcliffs<br />

Anthony<br />

Martin<br />

teenager who<br />

suffered a<br />

spinal injury in<br />

early 2020.<br />

Enzo Halliburton, now 18,<br />

was involved in a tragic swimming<br />

accident in Moncks Bay in<br />

January, 2020. While swimming<br />

with friends, Enzo dived into the<br />

water and did not resurface. He<br />

had seriously injured his spine<br />

and his friends had to perform<br />

mouth-to-mouth resuscitation<br />

and call for an ambulance.<br />

Enzo suffered a C5-C7 spinal<br />

injury and is now a tetraplegic.<br />

Martin has a work colleague<br />

whose son was with Enzo that<br />

day. After hearing Enzo’s story,<br />

Martin decided he wanted to do<br />

something to help raise money<br />

to go towards a specialised bike<br />

for Enzo.<br />

This was the first ultra-marathon<br />

distance Martin had ran.<br />

During training, Martin had<br />

ENDURANCE: Anthony Martin during his 100km run in Diamond Harbour.<br />

what he described as a “drawback”<br />

when he ruptured his<br />

hamstring in two places, tore the<br />

cartilage in his hip and had to get<br />

his Achilles tendon reattached.<br />

On the day of the run,<br />

Martin joined in on part of the<br />

Krayzie K’s ultra trail running<br />

event. The temperature that day<br />

was 27 deg C.<br />

“Being an Irish lad, I’m not<br />

built for heat,” said Martin.<br />

The 100km run took him 23hr<br />

38min. Thinking about Enzo<br />

and what he had gone through is<br />

what got Martin through those<br />

last hours.<br />

“Even in the worst pain that<br />

I was in, it’s still a drop in the<br />

ocean of the reality of being<br />

tetraplegic,” he said.<br />

When he finally crossed the<br />

finish line at 8.<strong>25</strong>am on Saturday<br />

morning, there was one thing on<br />

Martin’s mind: “All I wanted was<br />

a cup of tea, there was no tea [at<br />

the finish line] so I drove to my<br />

mates and he had some Irish tea<br />

bags, it was perfect.”<br />

RESIDENTS FIGHT FIRE<br />

Residents extinguished a fire in<br />

Call for feedback on proposal to lower speed limits<br />

REDUCED SPEED limits could<br />

be in the pipeline for parts of<br />

Scarborough and Taylors<br />

Mistake.<br />

Selected streets would have<br />

speed limits reduced from<br />

50km/h to 40km/h under the<br />

proposals.<br />

Residents of those areas are<br />

being encouraged to share their<br />

views on the draft proposals<br />

which are part of the city council’s<br />

Slow Speeds Neighbourhood<br />

programme.<br />

“Improving<br />

the safety of our<br />

road network is<br />

a priority for the<br />

council. Creating<br />

safer streets by<br />

reducing speeds<br />

is a key way we<br />

Steffan<br />

Thomas<br />

can do that,”<br />

said city council<br />

transport operations<br />

manager Steffan Thomas.<br />

“We are working<br />

proactively with communities<br />

to identify areas where speed is<br />

a problem. By lowering speeds,<br />

people feel encouraged to safely<br />

walk or cycle around their<br />

neighbourhoods.”<br />

“While many road users in<br />

these areas already travel below<br />

the current speed limit, implementing<br />

a lower limit will help<br />

those unfamiliar with the area to<br />

understand the safe and appropriate<br />

speed.”<br />

“Scarborough and Taylors<br />

Mistake in particular attract<br />

large numbers of visitors to the<br />

beaches and walkways over the<br />

summer months and this will<br />

help to signpost and reinforce<br />

safe driver behaviour.”<br />

The city council has<br />

implemented a number of slow<br />

speed neighbourhoods over the<br />

past five years and will continue<br />

to prioritise the initiative,<br />

Thomas said.<br />

The deadline for submissions is<br />

December 5.<br />

Sharpen your<br />

painting skills<br />

on park mural<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

COMMUNITY participation<br />

and connection is the idea<br />

behind a planned mural for<br />

Radley Park.<br />

Starting next week,<br />

Woolston residents will be<br />

rolling up their sleeves to help<br />

paint a mural that will be put up<br />

along the existing fence line at<br />

the park.<br />

Roimata Food Commons<br />

founder, which is located at the<br />

park, Michael Reynolds, felt<br />

as though most public spaces<br />

were heavily under-used as<br />

community spaces.<br />

“People don’t necessarily feel<br />

like the park belongs to them,”<br />

he said.<br />

“We wanted to create a space<br />

for people to feel connected.”<br />

The inspiration behind the<br />

project stems from the postearthquake<br />

street art in central<br />

city. Reynolds said it invited<br />

people to spend more time in<br />

those places admiring the art<br />

and wanted to bring the same to<br />

Woolston.<br />

There will be workshops<br />

running each Saturday from<br />

<strong>November</strong> 27 at 2-4.30pm.<br />

The community can<br />

contribute a steady hand for<br />

painting the mural designed<br />

by local artist Sandrine Line<br />

School kea Crossing. Right – Parents helping children cross at the<br />

Solutions discussed with community board<br />

• From page 1<br />

“We’re trying to do what we<br />

can with what we’ve got,” he said.<br />

Year eight pupils told <strong>Southern</strong><br />

<strong>View</strong> about the dangers<br />

of walking or biking to<br />

school with busy traffic.<br />

Elsie Brown said some<br />

cars didn’t indicate so it’s<br />

hard to know when to<br />

cross at the roundabout.<br />

Esme Turner usually<br />

travels on her skateboard<br />

to school and said some<br />

cars didn’t stop at the<br />

kea crossing and thought putting<br />

zebra stripes in would solve this.<br />

Alice Denley<br />

Catalina Williams and Ella<br />

Tuffnell also thought introducing<br />

zebra stripes would help cars slow<br />

down and notice that children<br />

were trying to cross the<br />

busy road.<br />

Olivia Marshall said<br />

traffic was just as busy<br />

when she was walking<br />

home and cars didn’t<br />

look around to check for<br />

pupils crossing.<br />

“There’s lots of little<br />

kids scootering home<br />

with their parents and<br />

I think it must be quite scary for<br />

them.”<br />

Senior pupils also went to<br />

the Mobil service station on<br />

Centaurus Rd after school and<br />

they felt it was dangerous trying<br />

to cross the road to get there.<br />

The school released a survey<br />

for parents and pupils about<br />

preferred modes of transport and<br />

found that parents would rather<br />

their children walk or bike to<br />

school if it was safer.<br />

Deputy principal Alice<br />

Denley said meeting with<br />

the community board was<br />

successful and solutions were<br />

discussed.<br />

“The board didn’t think that<br />

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What<br />

safety measures should be<br />

implemented at Centaurus<br />

roundabout – Centaurus Rd,<br />

Wilsons Rd and Albert Tce?<br />

Send your views to emily.<br />

moorhouse@starmedia.<br />

kiwi Keep responses to 200<br />

words or less.<br />

the Mobil would be an issue,<br />

they just thought it would be the<br />

roundabout itself so it was good<br />

for them to hear from the kids<br />

that they do go to Mobil and it’s a<br />

busy area.”<br />

Five artists combine for our new group exhibition ‘Sum of the Parts’<br />

<strong>November</strong> 27 - December 14; on show for a shorter duration to allow<br />

for all-important Christmas pickup opportunities.<br />

Contributing artists are Christchurch Kara Burrowes and local Little<br />

River sculptor Jane Downes. Jasmine Keir’s studio is in Kerikeri, just up<br />

the road from Dave Green in Rawene, and Debra Powell is from the<br />

rural Waikato hamlet of Te Pahu.<br />

Kara Burrowes is an artist and designer based in Christchurch. Her work<br />

is tactile and experimental. Using recycled wood from demolition sites, she loves<br />

the concept of transforming something quite ordinary into something precious and<br />

alluring. “Through reinterpretation I like to create a new language, often through the<br />

use of pattern and repetition, method and process.”<br />

Debra Powell’s alias in the pottery studio is ‘Little Betty’. Her ceramic work has<br />

strong narrative themes, exploring relationships between people and nature, playing<br />

with convention, and infusing the result with a gentle humour.<br />

Oxidized copper artist Jasmine Keir endeavours to create and understand the<br />

alchemy of colours achievable via her artistic process; one which uses a variety of<br />

natural ingredients to react with and manipulate the finish of her copper works.<br />

Dave Green creates whimsical arrangements; ‘Lightshifter’ sculptures. His art is about changing the form<br />

and shape of found, often discarded, objects - both natural and manmade. Reborn out of pre-loved glass<br />

and crystal, some are lighting devices others are designed to hang in the light.<br />

Sculptor Jane Downes’ delicate themes are fabricated in steel. ‘Arboresque’ a study of tree forms, an<br />

observation of nature’s sacred geometry.”<br />

Many Summerset residents I speak with enjoy that their housing<br />

is secured, finances sorted with no surprises, and care is on hand at<br />

any level should you need it in the future. There’s a certain<br />

freedom in knowing the big (and not so big) things are<br />

taken care of, so you can just get on with living life.<br />

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas<br />

Christmas is a great time for passing down recipes that are tried and true becoming<br />

traditional family favourites. The owner of this recipe says her mum used to make<br />

the pudding on Christmas Eve and would take the bowl and wooden spoon around<br />

everyone in the house to stir the mixture and make a wish.<br />

Make a Wish Christmas Pudding<br />

You will need:<br />

• 1 ½ tbsp butter<br />

• 1 ½ tsp baking soda<br />

• 1 ½ cups of boiling water<br />

• 1 ½ cups flour<br />

• 1 ½ cups mixed fruit or sultanas<br />

• ¾ cup sugar<br />

Method:<br />

1. In a glass or stainless steel bowl,<br />

melt the butter (over hot water)<br />

and dissolve the baking soda.<br />

2. Add the boiling water and<br />

sugar.<br />

3. When cool, add flour and<br />

mixed fruit.<br />

4. Stir all the ingredients together<br />

and make a Christmas wish.<br />

5. Cover bowl with a tea towel and<br />

allow to stand overnight.<br />

The next day:<br />

• Place mixture into a greased<br />

bowl or ice-cream container,<br />

cover with tinfoil and place in a<br />

pot of water, just deep enough<br />

so the bowl doesn’t float.<br />

• Boil pudding for four hours and<br />

check regularly to make sure<br />

the water has boiled dry. Top<br />

up carefully with extra water if<br />

required.<br />

• Serve with heaps of Chantilly<br />

cream!<br />

Chantilly<br />

Cream<br />

You will need:<br />

• 1 x bottle of cream<br />

• ½ tsp vanilla essence<br />

• 1 tbsp icing sugar to<br />

sweeten<br />

Method:<br />

Put cream, vanilla essence<br />

and icing sugar in a bowl and<br />

whisk until light and fluffy with<br />

softly formed peaks. Cover and<br />

refrigerate until ready to serve.<br />

ADVENTURES: Ray on the Benmore Dam during the Alps to Ocean Trail in 2017, and with Judith on West Coast Wilderness Trail in 2015.<br />

Spin class cyclists gear up for off-road trip<br />

CYCLISTS RAY and Judith<br />

Blyth are scheduled to head off<br />

today on a 160km off-road trail<br />

tour, as part of a YMCA’s Life<br />

Fit trip along Central Otago’s<br />

mountain bike trails.<br />

Ray, 79, who is the oldest in the<br />

21-strong group, will cycle the<br />

Roxburgh Gorge, Clutha Gold<br />

and the Lake Dunstan trails over<br />

three days.<br />

Ray and Judith brought their<br />

bikes in 2006 when Ray retired,<br />

with the intention to stay fit and<br />

get around Christchurch. A Life<br />

Fit member for the last 15 years,<br />

Ray has been on four previous<br />

cycle trips with his fellow spin<br />

class participants.<br />

Ray and Judith are very fortunate<br />

for the spin group, which<br />

Ray describes as a mixture of<br />

fitness and companionship.<br />

“We just thank our lucky stars<br />

that we have our health and are<br />

able to do these things,” he said.<br />

“As they say, you’ve got to use<br />

it or lose it.”<br />

Event organiser Jill O’Connor,<br />

said the idea formed from a<br />

desire for members to see cycling<br />

as a lifestyle, not just a class to<br />

take once a week.<br />

“The goal has always been<br />

companionship. We want our<br />

spin members to feel confident<br />

to go out biking on the weekend<br />

with their grandkids and with<br />

friends,” she said.<br />

O’Connor said Life Fit realised<br />

a lot of members were very fit<br />

and proficient on their spin<br />

bikes, but rarely went out on<br />

their regular bikes.<br />

“We find there is a huge sense<br />

of achievement at the end of each<br />

trip, and everyone’s confidence<br />

just keeps building.”<br />

Age is not really a factor for<br />

the team and some of those who<br />

find the trips harder are now using<br />

e-bikes so they can continue<br />

to participate.<br />

The spin class undertakes a<br />

six-week training programme<br />

prior to each trip to get them<br />

well adjusted to cycling outside<br />

of the class and to ensure their<br />

fitness levels match the difficulty<br />

of the planned trips.<br />

The programme prepares them<br />

for riding on off-road tracks and<br />

builds their experience of riding<br />

in a large group.<br />

The team of three support staff<br />

are all experienced cyclists who<br />

have previously led many Life<br />

Fit cycle trips around the South<br />

Island. They have been supporting<br />

the participants through the<br />

training programme and will<br />

cycle alongside them on the trail.<br />

Life Fit is a YMCA programme<br />

targeted at older gym members<br />

or those rehabilitating from<br />

illness or injury. Members<br />

focus on building stamina and<br />

retaining strength through a<br />

range of group exercise and<br />

spin classes.<br />
