Brothers,

rugby and

books

• By Kristie Boland

BRENDAN NOLAN was

watching his 5-year-old son

reading last year when he had

a realisation: Wouldn’t it be

good if more kids this age were

reading instead of playing

PlayStation?

So he created the coaching

programme ‘Bread and Butter’,

which he’s now looking to

expand into other rugby and

sports clubs in Canterbury.

www.starnews.co.nz

SKILLS: Brothers Odin and Rikard Hanekom are part of a new rugby coaching programme ‘Bread and Butter’,

designed to encourage reading.

Police deny

claim they

are not

patrolling

busy roads

• By Fiona Ellis

POLICE REFUTE a claim they

are not adequately patrolling the

Christchurch Northern Corridor

and Cranford St.

The finger has been pointed

by Papanui-Innes Community

Board member Ali Jones, which

prompted the board to ask police

to target the area for speeding.

Jones and the board say speeding

cars are contributing to the

noise area for residents living

along the two

roads.

But Senior

Sergeant Mike

Jones said the

area was already

actively patrolled

for speeding

traffic and other

issues.

Ali Jones

“The area is already patrolled

regularly by police and we will

continue to do so,” he said.

Jones said, in her experience,

traffic was not keeping within

speed limits.

“What people are doing is not

even five or 10 ks over, there’s

actually some really dangerous

driving going on,” Jones said.

Speeding traffic was a key

cause of the ongoing noise issue

in the area, and she thought

reducing speed would help to

address residents’ concerns about

this.

Submissions support cycleway

• By Fiona Ellis

THE MAJORITY of 424

submissions support the third

and final section of the Nor’west

Arc Cycleway, a city council

analysis has revealed.

Just 12 per cent of submitters

opposed the construction of

the cycleway, which would link

Canterbury University to Jellie

Park and Harewood Rd, and

a further 23 per cent were

neutral.

However, design details

divided the submitters on the

project, which has received $10.5

million in funding as part of

the Government ‘shovel ready’

projects.

Safety and parking were frequent

concerns.

Submitters were split on the

two proposed designs for Ilam

Rd.

A one-way cycleway on each

side of the road was favoured

by 55 per cent of submitters

who selected an option, while

45 per cent preferred a two-way

cycleway on the west side of the

road.

Of those who supported the

first option, safety was a common

reason, cited by 32 submitters.

Ilam Rd residents W and PJ

Gilroy said it was obviously the

safer option.

“We will only have to look one

way for approaching cyclists as

we exit our drive and we will

PROPOSAL: The city council has requested the Nor’West Arc cycleway hearings panel

have a clear view of vehicles

approaching from the right. At

present, our view is obstructed

by vehicles parked close to the

exit from our garage and drive.”

University lecturer Mads

Thomsen, who said he cycled to

the university every day, called

the first option “1000 times

better, safer, and more efficient”

as it would reduce the need for

cyclists to cross the road.

The need to retain parking

spaces was a popular reason

among those who favoured the

second option, cited by 25 submitters.

Mortlocks Lawyers Partner

Guy Mortlock favoured a twoway

cycleway, stating there was

already a shortage of parking

in the area, especially with high

demand from students.

“It is important to retain as

much parking as possible, while

still making cycling safer than it

currently is,” he said.

Safety was also cited as a factor

by 12 submitters who preferred

the second option.

Bellbird Hearing Clinic

Manager Sam Sloane stated he

was afraid a cycleway in front

of the clinic, located on the east

side of Ilam Rd would create an

increased risk of car accidents

with his elderly clients and

supported a two-way cycleway

instead.

Submitters were also split on

the proposed design options for

Aorangi Rd from the intersection

of Ilam Rd to them the

intersection of Brookside Tce.

A two-way cycleway on

the west side of the road was

preferred by 62 per cent of submitters

who selected an option,

while 38 per cent preferred a

shared path on the west side of

the road.

Safety was a top concern by

those who preferred the first option,

cited by 40 submitters.

For example, submitter Paul

Ainsworth said a shared path

would be disastrous.

“Having scooters, cycles etc

travelling at 30km/h in the same

area as pedestrians will only lead

to serious accidents,” he said.

Fourteen submitters who

chose this option also wanted to

avoid poor user behaviour they

believed would be an issue with a

shared path.

Submitter Richard Ibbitt said

his experience with shared pathways

had not been good.

“The pedestrian usually has

to give way to cyclists, not all of

whom seem to appreciate that a

shared space means that all parties

using the pathways have to

be equally considerate.”

Although the second option of

a shared path was less popular

overall, all of those who lived

along this section of the route

and made a choice between the

two designs selected this option.

Maintaining on-road car

parking was the reason cited by

30 submitters who chose this

option.

OPTIONS: Public submissions showed 55 per cent of submitters preferred a cycleway on

each side of Ilam Rd, while 45 per cent preferred a two-way cycleway on the west side of

the road.

PHOTO: CHRISTCHURCH CITY COUNCIL

Final decision expected next year

• From page 1

Aorangi Rd resident Emma

King stated loss of car parking

was a concern.

However, safety was also cited

by five submitters who prefer

this option, including student

Aestival Britten, who travelled on

Aorangi Rd most days.

“Shared paths provide a good

option as there’s enough space

for cyclists to pass slower scooter

users and scooter users to pass

slower pedestrians without jostling

for space,” Britten said.

The planned design for the

intersection of Aorangi and

Wairakei Rds also caused a

divide among the 53 submitters

who shared their opinions.

The design put to the public

would stop through traffic and

right turns for cars travelling in

either direction along Aorangi

Rd.

Twenty-one submitters supported

the design, citing safety

benefits.

Kathy Beswick said she liked to

cycle but that the current intersection

was horrendous and she

avoided using it

“I fully support this aspect of

the plan,” Beswick said.

However, more submitters opposed

the design, with 25 people

objecting due to access issues and

predicting traffic on side roads

would increase.

Submitter Alastair Christie

said strongly opposed the blocking

off through traffic and traffic

turning right.

“This intersection as this will

make it much more difficult for

me to access a large part of my

city,” Christie said.

The cycleway section has

received $10.5 million in funding

as part of the Government ‘shovel

ready’ projects.

The cycleway hearing panel is

set to make its recommendation

to the urban development and

transport committee early next

year, with the committee to make

the final decision.

A report included in the

agenda of the hearings panel by

city council senior engagement

adviser Tessa Zant requested the

panel to recommend a one-way

cycleway is installed on each side

of Ilam Rd, varying between 1.8

and 2m wide.

It also requested a 4m shared

path from the corner of Jellie

Park up to Truman Rd, and from

there a 3m two-way cycleway

along Aorangi Rd to the intersection

with Wairakei Rd.

The report recommended the

intersection remain closed to

through traffic and right-turning

traffic.

If the project is approved, work

is expected to begin in mid to late

2022.

Delay in low noise asphalt

• From page 1

Low noise asphalt was

scheduled to be installed on the

CNC last month, but the project

was pushed back and is now

expected to be completed by

April 2022.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport

Agency said the delay is due to

a hold-up in getting one of the

key ingredients for the top coat,

epoxy resin, shipped from the

United States.

City council data taken in May

shows an average daily traffic

count of 24,741, in Cranford St

between Innes Rd and Knowles

St, with an average speed of

42km/h.

NZTA traffic data shows

190,627 vehicles used the CNC

last week, a daily average of

27,232.

The average speed of northbound

traffic was 101.3km/h

and the average speed of

southbound traffic was

98.7km/h.

Jones said the community

board was waiting for more traffic

information but her impression

was still that speed was a

problem.

She questioned the location

point at which speed data was

gathered, saying people were

speeding before reaching the

100km/h zone of the CNC.

“People roar along the motorway

even before the QE II

turn-off.”

Winters Rd resident Alan

Johnson said the noise was stressful

to those who lived in the area,

and the low noise asphalt was the

only solution.

“If they slow [traffic] down I

don’t think it will totally address

the noise issue,” Johnson said.

Teaching kids life principles with B.R.E.A.D.

• From page 1

What began as having the team

read for 15 minutes before training

morphed into a new way of coaching,

connecting and teaching kids

some important life lessons.

With Bread and Butter, Nolan

endeavours to go beyond just

coaching rugby skills. It’s about

teaching kids the foundations of

being a good person – the ‘bread

and butter’ of life.

The C Pups, who all attend

Heathcote Valley School, spend

15 minutes before training

reading a book of their choice

with their parents and

caregivers.

After every game, the player

of the day is presented with the

B.R.E.A.D book, which they can

take home and write a story in it

about their experiences of rugby

so far. They present it to the team

the following week and then pass

the book onto the next player of

the day.

“It’s something that keeps them

involved longer than say just half

an hour after the game, something

to be proud of,” Nolan,

who works for the Lyttelton Port

Company, said.

Bread and Butter is not just for

rugby.

“It’s just the principles of being

good people. In rugby, they say

good people make good rugby

players. But don’t wait until

they’re 20, why don’t we start

putting this to the kids when

they’re young.”

“If they get their bread and

butter right, they can go from

there. It’s giving them the

opportunity from a young age.”

The programme isn’t just for

the kids – it also connects parents

and caregivers.

Jenna Timoti’s six year-old

son Mason Boyd has played two

seasons for the C Pups. Timoti

said Mason is a very capable

reader, but getting him to read

was a chore. Bread and Butter

helped Mason see reading as

something that’s just part of

training.

Timoti said she has seen a

difference in her son’s behaviour

since he has been coached by

Nolan.

“Mason is someone who is

easily distracted and needs

structure. I can see a difference

in his confidence, he’s so

determined and the values he

has learned have made him

more empathetic. He’s a lot more

caring,” she said.

Similarly, Heathcote Valley

School principal Bruce Ellison

said he has seen a change in

the kids since they have been

coached by Nolan.

“I’ve seen them grow as

people and I’ve seen their

relationships with each other

AVID: The C Pups under-6

team reading the B.R.E.A.D

book together, and their

coach Brendan Nolan.

Nolan also coaches the

Christchurch seniors, the

seniors sevens and Waitaha

Matua, the Canterbury

Maori men’s team.

grow,” said Ellison.

“It’s a no brainer, why haven’t

we been doing something like

this all along?”

Nolan said a programme like

this would have made him look

at rugby differently.

“When I was playing, it was

just about showing up and

playing the game, but I think this

is more of a deeper connection.”

Rugby and books

THE C PUPS: Before training sessions, both children and

parents spend 15 minutes reading.

• From page 7

Nolan wants that connection to

be fostered.

“It teaches kids to care for the

area, the grounds, care for the

opposition and each other. It’s

contagious and its something

that needs to be nurtured,” he

said.

Nolan wants to break down the

club versus club mentality, and

connect coaches as well.

Mainland Football interim

chief executive Martin Dodgson​

loves the idea of Bread and Butter

and believes most sports face the

same challenges.

“We love the concept and the

story behind it . . . The concept of

giving kids ownership over what

they do,” he said.

Dodgson thinks Bread and

Butter captures the essence of

sport.

“Sport teaches us lessons and

those lessons can be hidden

deep but [Brendan] brings these

lessons to the surface,” he said.

“The scoreboard would suggest

who the winner or loser is, but

this teaches kids what a real

‘winner’ is and what success

looks like.”

Nolan now hopes to take

the coaching programme

Canterbury-wide and has had

positive feedback from clubs and

other sports organisations.

FIRST PLACE: Marty and Naomi with their Hospitality New Zealand award for best local

bar and eatery.

Strowan bar and eatery

takes out top NZ award

• By Fiona Ellis

A NATIONAL competition has

found the country’s best local bar

and eatery, located in the heart of

Strowan.

The Elmwood Trading Company

took the award during a

virtual Hospitality New Zealand

Awards for Excellence 2021

prizegiving event.

Owner Marty Fuller said he

was “absolutely wrapt” with the

result.

“Given that it’s a national event

and it had a record number of

entries, even to be shortlisted

is significant. To win is exceptional,”

Fuller said.

He and wife Naomi had owned

the business for three-and-a-half

years and aimed to create a place

with good food and drink options,

and events such as quizzes.

“We don’t get any tourists,

we’re completely reliant on people

from the area.

“We have a great bunch

of regulars.”

With over 40 years in hospitality,

the win was a culmination of

his and others’ experience.

A national awards dinner

was originally set to be held in

Auckland in September, but was

rescheduled due to Covid-19.

The prizegiving was then

made into a virtual event

attended by about 70 people

from Christchurch, including

Elmwood staff and Fuller’s

family.

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.

RAY WHITE PAPANUI NEWS

Ray White Papanui & Little Ray of Giving

Ray White Papanui is extremely proud

to partner with the Christchurch

Kidney Society for our Little Ray of

Giving campaign this Christmas.

The Christchurch Kidney Society

(CKS) was formed in 1973, initially

as the New Zealand Kidney, Dialysis

and Transplant Society. Their aim is

to provide support for Christchurch

patients and families of patients who

are either approaching or have already

reached end-stage renal failure.

This year the Christchurch Kidney Society

would greatly appreciate your donation of:

• Gifts for teenagers

• Gifts for adults

• Gifts for families

• Gifts for children

Please add a wee note on the donation

Privacy Commission Laws & Property Management

The Privacy Commission recently

released guidelines around what

information a landlord can legally

request from a tenant when they are

applying for a rental property and on

the surface this can look like a scary

prospect. However, as in most of the

changes in legislation we come across

in our industry, when you dig a little

deeper and have processes in place, it is

in fact not quite what you first thought.

Discrimination has of course, and

rightly so, never been allowed when

choosing your tenants and this includes

anything from what race, religion,

sexual orientation or anything else

which will of course not actually affect

the tenancy.

The ethos of the new legislation is

essentially that landlords are only

permitted to collect information

needed for a lawful purpose connected

to finding tenants and managing

tenancies.

The major change which has got

landlords up in arms is that we

are no longer allowed to request

employment status at the first part

of the application process. This of

course upset landlords as it does seem

reasonable and not in breach of privacy

or any human rights to ascertain

whether a tenant can pay the rent each

week.

However, as I mentioned when you

Feature Properties

as to who the gift would be appropriate

for so they can make sure it gets to the

right person.

Stuck on ideas?

Something to read, nice toiletries, a

small puzzle or game, a gift card for

Apple or similar, treats (in boxes and

labelled in case of food allergies), toys

for children, crossword, sudoku and

word find books, as well as anything

else you think would be lovely for

someone who is receiving dialysis.

Please deliver your gifts to Ray White

Papanui, Level 1, 7 Winston Avenue,

Papanui (above Black & White Coffee

Cartel).

The last day for gifts to be delivered is

5.30pm, Monday 20 December 2021.

Thank you for your kind support.

look further into the legislation and

weigh up when it is reasonable to

collect essential information, at a later

point it can be done. What this means

is that a tenant application process will

become a four step process, as opposed

to collecting all of the information on

the initial application form it will have

to be staggered.

It should look something like this:

Step one – tenant arranges to view the

property. At this stage they can offer

to submit an application, however this

cannot be requested by the landlord.

You can only collect their name and

contact information.

Step two – the tenant completes an

application form with their basic

personal information, i.e. name &

contact information, proof of identity,

whether they are over 18 (but not their

age), contact details for referees and

consent to contact them and how many

people would be living at the property,

plus other details.

Step three - when you vet a shortlist

before deciding who the property will

be offered to. This is where we can ask

questions in regards to affordability of

the rent. This could include a payslip

or letter from an employer or work

and income and evidence of rental

payments from a previous tenancy.

Be careful here however as you are not

allowed to ask for evidence of spending

Christchurch Kidney Society will really

appreciate your support.

habits, bank statements etc.

Step four comes into effect once the

tenant has been offered the property

and you are completing the tenancy

agreement. Now it is permitted to

ask things like vehicle details, an

address for service and other similar

information.

So what is already a thorough due

diligence process can continue, it is

just a longer process. Of course a

tenant is able to provide you with any

information they would like to, we can

just not ask for it!

The Privacy Commission announced

that they are setting up a dedicated

phone line in March 2022 where

tenants can call and report any

breaches of The Privacy Act and The

Human Rights Act and I have a feeling

they may be rather busy given what

I often read in some rental property

advertising.

It is quite a complex process so if you

have any questions to ensure you don’t

get it wrong, please feel free to give

me a call. As I always say, training and

knowledge are the key to successfully

owning an investment property.
