‘Miraculous’<br />

return<br />

of<br />

Puff<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

THREE DAYS after going missing,<br />

Simone Li is calling the return of<br />

her adventurous pet cockatiel Puff<br />

a miracle.<br />

She was overjoyed to stop by<br />

Harewood School to collect the<br />

bird, who was found making new<br />

friends at the school after going<br />

missing from Wigram.<br />

“We were all shocked by the<br />

distance she flew, especially in such<br />

horrible weather,” Li said.<br />

It was about 10km (as the<br />

cockatiel flies).<br />

It was the first outing for the<br />

hand-raised pet, who flew out<br />

a door that was open for a split<br />

second.<br />

“We were afraid she could not<br />

survive from the rain, could be<br />

eaten by cats, or could die because<br />

of hunger and cold.”<br />

Plan for<br />

pedestrian<br />

islands a bid<br />

to improve<br />

safety on<br />

busy road<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

A PLAN to install pedestrian<br />

islands in the middle of Langdons<br />

Rd has been approved with the<br />

support of 73 per cent of public<br />

submitters.<br />

However, this alone will<br />

not solve the<br />

traffic problems,<br />

according to<br />

Papanui-Innes<br />

Community Board<br />

members and<br />

submitters alike.<br />

THe board<br />

approved the<br />

installation of two<br />

10.5m islands,<br />

Mike<br />

Davidson<br />

one opposite Northlink shopping<br />

centre and one further along past<br />

the intersection with Sails St.<br />

Papanui Ward councillor<br />

Mike Davidson said it would not<br />

solve all issues but was a step in<br />

the right direction as increasing<br />

development made conditions<br />

worse. Conditions were difficult<br />

for pedestrians, cyclists and<br />

drivers alike.<br />

“We’ve seen the traffic that’s<br />

being generated down there, and<br />

it doesn’t feel safe,” Davidson said.<br />

City council acting transport<br />

operations manager Stephen<br />

Wright told Nor’west <strong>News</strong> the last<br />

traffic count in Langdons Rd near<br />

Sails St in took place in Feburary<br />

2021. • Turn to page 4<br />

Great teamwork pays off<br />

for Young Farmer winners<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

STRONG teamwork is the key<br />

to success for two St Bede’s<br />

College students who have won a<br />

regional farming competition.<br />

Year 12 students Jack Dennehy-Coles<br />

and Finn O’Kane have<br />

been named Tasman FMG Junior<br />

Young Farmers of the Year.<br />

Jack said they had done so well<br />

in the Springston competition<br />

on Saturday because they were a<br />

good combination.<br />

“We complement each other<br />

well and we work together well,”<br />

he said.<br />

His strong points were dairy<br />

farming and practical tasks,<br />

whereas Finn was stronger on<br />

scientific tasks, he said.<br />

Both are boarders, with Jack<br />

coming from a dairy farm on<br />

the West Coast and Finn from a<br />

dairy farm near Timaru.<br />

Next for the duo was the grand<br />

final competition, set to be held<br />

in Whangarei in July.<br />

“If we prepare well, we could<br />

have a pretty good chance going<br />

into it,” Jack said.<br />

Finn said the competition was<br />

challenging at times.<br />

A beekeeping module was difficult<br />

as it was a subject neither of<br />

them knew much about, so they<br />

went by “gut instincts,” he said.<br />

“It was a bit of a surprise, I<br />

didn’t think we’d do as well as<br />

we did.”<br />

Saint Bede’s College agriculture<br />

teacher and team supervisor<br />

John McPhail said the boys had<br />

a relatively short lead-in time to<br />

prepare for the competition.<br />

“I heard they were up quite late<br />

last night reading through different<br />

notes and cramming a bit of<br />

study,” he said.<br />

“It was a tight turnaround this<br />

year because we’d only been back<br />

at school for two weeks before<br />

entries were due.”<br />

McPhail has coached two<br />

teams to grand final success, taking<br />

out the national title of FMG<br />

Junior Young Farmer of the Year<br />

in 2018 and 2020.<br />

“ I will prepare them as best<br />

as I can for what to expect when<br />

you get there. They just have to<br />

go out there and do the best they<br />

can,” he said.<br />

Under the red light system,<br />

each event at the regional final<br />

was held separately and capped<br />

at 35 teams on rotation to comply<br />

with the 100 person capacity<br />

limit.<br />

Amelia Ridgen and Erin<br />

Humm from Christchurch Girls’<br />

High School were named as<br />

the region’s runner-ups for the<br />

second year running.<br />

FUNDING DEADLINE<br />

EXTENDED<br />

Groups who have applied for<br />

funding for community events<br />

will be allowed an extension until<br />

June to seek reimbursement, the<br />

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood<br />

Community Board has decided.<br />

The board acknowledged the<br />

community might be nervous<br />

to hold an event in the current<br />

pandemic circumstances.<br />

LEASE GRANTED TO<br />

KINDERGARTEN<br />

The Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board has granted a 33-year<br />

ground lease to a Mairehau<br />

kindergarten for an annual rent<br />

of $404.44 plus GST. Canterbury<br />

Westland Kindergarten<br />

Association Incorporated was<br />

granted the lease for Kidsfirst<br />

Kindergartens MacFarlane Park.<br />

The kindergarten did not have<br />

a current lease, with the land<br />

now classified as a local purpose<br />

(community building) reserve,<br />

according to a city council report.<br />

helps with<br />

Puff’s safe<br />

return<br />

• From page 1<br />

Li was devastated by the disappearance<br />

of the bird, which used to follow<br />

her about the house like a dog.<br />

She took the day off work to look<br />

for Puff, alongside partner Ivan<br />

Yu, but heavy rain made the search<br />

difficult.<br />

After looking around the<br />

neighbourhood on foot and by car,<br />

the couple turned their focus to<br />

Facebook, where Li posted photos<br />

of Puff to ‘Lost & Found Pets in<br />

Christchurch’ with photos and<br />

a message offering $100 for her<br />

return.<br />

Li had lost hope by the third day<br />

when several people alerted her to a<br />

post from Harewood School, where<br />

a “very friendly” pet bird had been<br />

found. She recognised the bird as<br />

Puff by details such as a dark beak<br />

and two broken tail feathers.<br />

Li’s photos and videos proved to<br />

the school it was Puff, as did the<br />

reaction of the bird. Puff jumped to<br />

her usual spot on Li’s shoulder and<br />

began biting her finger and glasses.<br />

“This miracle happened because<br />

of everyone’s support on the internet<br />

and real life.<br />

“We really appreciated everything<br />

and felt so warm be in such a<br />

wonderful community,” Li said.<br />

Majority of submitters approve plan<br />

• From page 1<br />

It showed a daily average traffic<br />

level of 11, 713 vehicles per<br />

day.<br />

“Prior to the development<br />

opening a traffic count undertaken<br />

in March 2020 at the same<br />

location recorded [an average] of<br />

8,682 vehicles per day,” he said.<br />

A report contained in the<br />

meeting agenda stated the wider<br />

area was being investigated by<br />

the city council’s network planning<br />

team.<br />

This included the possibility<br />

of signalised intersections and a<br />

signalised entrance and pedestrian<br />

crossing to the shopping<br />

centre.<br />

However,<br />

such changes<br />

are unlikely to<br />

occur anytime<br />

soon.<br />

“Nothing<br />

is confirmed<br />

Emma<br />

Norrish<br />

at this stage<br />

and any such<br />

treatments are<br />

beyond the<br />

traffic operations team’s budget<br />

capabilities.”<br />

Public submissions on the<br />

planned islands closed in<br />

December, with 37 people<br />

taking the chance to voice their<br />

opinions, 27 in favour of the<br />

plans.<br />

Board chairwoman Emma<br />

Norrish said she was pleased to<br />

see positive public feedback.<br />

BUSY: Langdons Rd could soon have pedestrian islands in place.<br />

“We all know about the<br />

safety issues on Langdons Rd<br />

and it is going to take a lot to<br />

fix them, but this is a quick<br />

win.”<br />

Issues raised in the submissions<br />

included the need for<br />

traffic signals and signalised<br />

crossings, cycle safety, and visibility<br />

issues at the intersection<br />

of Chapel St and Langdons Rd.<br />

Submitter Sheryl Croft was<br />

among those who predicted the<br />

need for more changes.<br />

“I can see that at some point<br />

traffic and crossing lights will<br />

probably be needed but I think<br />

the islands are a good idea in the<br />

Thursday <strong>February</strong> <strong>24</strong> <strong>2022</strong><br />

meantime,” she said.<br />

However, submitter Scott<br />

Campell was among those who<br />

did not like the design, criticising<br />

it as “timid”.<br />

A pedestrian crossing would<br />

be more effective as it would let<br />

vehicles yield to pedestrians and<br />

cyclists, he said.<br />

A word from Ilam MP<br />

Sarah<br />

Pallett<br />

I know that the news of Omicron in<br />

the community and the subsequent<br />

rise in COVID case numbers<br />

has been quite confronting for<br />

some. But even as we see case<br />

numbers rise across the country,<br />

it’s encouraging to know that<br />

the safeguards of the traffic light<br />

framework and our exceptional<br />

vaccination rates are helping to<br />

reduce the risk and keep our most<br />

vulnerable safe.<br />

That said, boosters are our strongest<br />

weapon against Omicron. The<br />

latest data from countries like the<br />

United States shows that boosters<br />

make a real difference, reducing the<br />

chances of people getting really sick<br />

and ending up in hospital.<br />

If you’re eligible but haven’t yet<br />

had your booster dose, I’d really<br />

encourage you to do that today.<br />

Getting that protection as soon<br />

as you can is the best way to<br />

cushion our community and our<br />

health system from the impact of<br />

Omicron. Find a walk-in clinic near<br />

you or book your appointment now<br />

by calling 0800 28 29 26 or online at<br />

bookmyvaccine.nz.<br />

Another way to prepare is to have<br />

a think about what you might need<br />

at home if you are sick and need to<br />

isolate. If you haven’t already, you<br />

may want to put together a wellness<br />

kit including things to help you<br />

cope with COVID-19 symptoms<br />

—such as ibuprofen, paracetamol,<br />

throat lozenges, cough medicine,<br />

and ice blocks. A thermometer is<br />

also a good addition to any wellness<br />

pack.<br />

It’s sensible and rational to prepare,<br />

as far as we are able. But please be<br />

considerate of others and only buy<br />

as much as you need.<br />

As always, I’m here to help. Please<br />

get in touch with my office if you<br />

have any issues or concerns.<br />

Leaving town: Make way for the old<br />

• By John Cosgrove and<br />

Susan Sandys<br />

A GRAND two-storey Papanui<br />

house has left town after<br />

a mammoth removal and<br />

transport operation.<br />

New owner Vanessa Nikolaidis<br />

said shifting the 11m-wide upper<br />

and lower sections went according<br />

to plan, bar one squashed temporary<br />

fence and two popped tyres.<br />

The 1920s-era building and<br />

former eye clinic at St George’s<br />

Hospital on Papanui Rd was sold<br />

off as the hospital plans a cancer<br />

treatment ward at the site.<br />

Nikolaidis loves old homes,<br />

and was thrilled with her find,<br />

now located in Tai Tapu.<br />

“I wanted to build a new heritage<br />

homestead, but I looked at<br />

the price and then found this<br />

lovely old house was available,”<br />

she said.<br />

After a two-week delay with<br />

wet weather and a crane hold-up,<br />

it was all go last week.<br />

A large crane lifted the upper<br />

section onto a transporter, before<br />

the journey out of town, around<br />

past the airport.<br />

“Papanui Rd wasn’t an issue.<br />

Belfast Rd got a bit tight in a few<br />

areas, because there was parked<br />

cars they had to kind of wiggle<br />

it around. Halswell Junction Rd<br />

was quite tight as well, half on<br />

the footpath half on the road,<br />

hovering over people’s yards to<br />

get down there,” Nikolaidis said.<br />

PREPARING: The former eye clinic at St George’s Hospital<br />

on Papanui Rd waits to be separated in two and lowered<br />

onto a transporter.<br />

“The only thing they managed<br />

to drop it on was a temporary<br />

fence. We looked at it when<br />

they picked it back up, it kind of<br />

squished it sideways.”<br />

In addition, the trailer burst<br />

a tyre under the weight of its<br />

23-tonne load.<br />

“They didn’t change it, they<br />

just kept driving.”<br />

The following night the bottom<br />

storey was shifted and all<br />

went well, although another tyre<br />

blew out.<br />

The upper and lower storeys<br />

have been reunited at their<br />

new Michaels Rd residence and<br />

will be lifted in one piece onto<br />

a new foundation when this is<br />

completed.<br />

Nikolaidis said she and<br />

her partner would live in the<br />

four-bedroom, two-lounge,<br />

two-bathroom villa. It would be<br />

in good company, with another<br />

home from the 1880s already at<br />

the property, which is a<br />

family farm.<br />

GENTLY DOES IT: The top half of the building is raised<br />

then lowered onto the transporter.<br />

LEAKING WATER supplies<br />

READERS’ LETTERS<br />

Final Nor’West Arc cycleway plan draws criticism<br />

Our family has lived close to<br />

the intersection of Aorangi and<br />

Wairakei Rds for over 50 years<br />

(in three different houses).<br />

We have all made submissions<br />

regarding the cycleway.<br />

My main concern is the proposed<br />

closing of the intersection<br />

to through traffic to the other<br />

half of Aorangi Rd and the no<br />

right-hand turn from Aorangi<br />

Rd into Wairakei Rd.<br />

I also don’t like the two directions<br />

of the cycleway on the<br />

same side of Aorangi Rd. It will<br />

be very dangerous trying to exit<br />

private driveways. I did get support<br />

from three city councillors<br />

before submissions closed. –<br />

Phyllis A Holden<br />

I am a resident of Aorangi Rd,<br />

living close to the Wairakei Rd<br />

corner.<br />

I am not convinced that the<br />

consultation process was particularly<br />

fair or well-timed, as<br />

consultation occurred with just a<br />

few day’s notice before the public<br />

meetings.<br />

This was in part due to the late<br />

delivery of information pamphlets,<br />

likely due to the August/<br />

September Covid-19 lockdown.<br />

However, it definitely didn’t allow<br />

much time for the public to<br />

get involved and then comment.<br />

I would have to agree with<br />

Alister Metherell that the<br />

Aorangi/Wairakei Rds intersection<br />

plans are particularly<br />

concerning.<br />

In its current plan, I firmly<br />

believe that there will be unintended<br />

consequences in all<br />

nearby streets with the closing<br />

off of the majority of traffic both<br />

in and out of Aorangi Rd.<br />

I mentioned this in both my<br />

written submission and in my<br />

5min oral submission at the<br />

online city council hearing.<br />

I am very sceptical about the<br />

number of cyclists who would<br />

ever even use this cycleway (how<br />

common is it to cycle from the<br />

university through to Harewood<br />

Rd), and to unnecessarily<br />

disrupt the daily commute and<br />

vehicle movements of thousands<br />

of other residents for the sake of<br />

a few cyclists seems crazy to me.<br />

A fully signalised intersection<br />

is the only viable option to me<br />

and, no doubt, to many other<br />

residents. – Jenni Holden<br />

CROSSROADS: Traffic will be unable to turn right onto Wairakei Rd from Aorangi Rd once<br />

the Nor’West Arc cycleway is built.<br />

Love at first sight<br />

How to make homebuyers fall in love<br />

Some people say that love at first sight<br />

doesn’t exist, but perhaps they’ve never<br />

seen a prospective buyer’s eyes light up<br />

upon stepping into their dream home.<br />

Property styling allows your home to<br />

shine in its best light and allow the buyers<br />

to visualise living in the space. How can<br />

you strike an emotional connection with<br />

your homebuyers?<br />

First impressions are everything<br />

We’re all about detail and so are<br />

homebuyers. You should be putting your<br />

best foot forward from the get-go. For<br />

example, entrances are surprisingly one of<br />

the most neglected spaces. Although it’s<br />

not somewhere people spend a lot of time,<br />

it’s the very first impression. It doesn’t<br />

take much to spruce up your entranceway<br />

with a console table, statement artwork<br />

or flowers.<br />

Tell a story with styling<br />

One of the big problems we see with home<br />

styling jobs is the lack of connection from<br />

room to room. This makes it a disjointed<br />

and confusing experience for the buyer.<br />

Try to use a colour theme, textures or an<br />

artwork motif theme to tie the spaces<br />

together.<br />

Right on target<br />

One thing you don’t want to do is try to<br />

impress everyone<br />

– you won’t get<br />

anywhere trying<br />

to style your home<br />

for all buyer types<br />

when for example,<br />

your townhouse is<br />

perfect for young<br />

professionals. Style<br />

your home to make<br />

it relevant to the<br />

buyer pool that<br />

your home will most<br />

likely appeal to. Not<br />

sure who that is?<br />

Check in with one<br />

of the team here at<br />

Ray White Papanui,<br />

we would be happy<br />

to chat further<br />

with you about your most likely buyer<br />

demographic.<br />

Declutter your life<br />

As with many things, less is more – a<br />

decluttered home is much easier to fall in<br />

love with.<br />

A home should feel like a home<br />

Don’t be afraid to mix things up a bit. Aim<br />

for a semi casual vibe so homebuyers<br />

feel as comfortable as possible walking<br />

through the space. Sometimes it’s as<br />

simple as draping a throw over a chair<br />

or leaving an open book on the bedside.<br />

These little details are essential to helping<br />

your buyers envision their lives in the<br />

property.<br />

The Complexity of Rental<br />

Legislation<br />

Today I wanted to cover<br />

the importance of ensuring<br />

property managers have the<br />

knowledge and experience to<br />

provide exceptional service<br />

to both their landlords and<br />

tenants. This is of course<br />

one of the most important<br />

considerations when making<br />

your choice on who to manage<br />

your investment property.<br />

During recent years the<br />

increased complexity of<br />

tenancy legislation, has made<br />

it equally important that they<br />

can keep on top of all of the<br />

changes, and they have robust<br />

systems and processes in place<br />

to ensure potentially costly errors are not<br />

made.<br />

Part of my role is in assisting our Morris<br />

& Co sales team in anything related to<br />

tenancies and the Residential Tenancies<br />

Act and I am often privy to communication<br />

which is sent out via other property<br />

management companies. Unfortunately<br />

I too often see either a complete lack of<br />

communication or completely incorrect<br />

information/notices being given to tenants<br />

and landlords.<br />

Being heavily entrenched in the industry<br />

I am part of several different property<br />

management online forums, I am well<br />

supported by our corporate team who take<br />

a keen interest in anything to do with rental<br />

properties, so I remain up to date with what<br />

is going on out there.<br />

My role as operations manager allows<br />

me time to read and digest all of the<br />

information and pass this onto my team<br />

who are in the field, and seemingly neverending<br />

legislation changes.<br />

It is equally important that there are<br />

systems and processes in place to ensure<br />

that everything is correct and current, as<br />

after all we are all humans, and sometimes<br />

errors can occur. If you ask my team they<br />

will tell you how much I love a checklist too!<br />

So whether you are using a property<br />

manager, or self managing your own rental<br />

property please ensure that when you are<br />

issuing any notices that you are doing so<br />

according to the RTA, and in particular the<br />

2020 Amendments which came into effect<br />

in <strong>February</strong> last year. The consequences of<br />

getting it wrong could be costly!<br />
