Prioritising funding one

of the toughest tasks – Chen

AFTER 15 years in local body

politics, Jimmy Chen won’t be

part of the new city council, post

October’s election.

Chen, now 70, called time on

standing again to spend more

time with his family.

“Over the past 15 years I have

placed a high priority on the

community, sometimes at the

expense of my family,’’ he said.

“After October, I am looking

forward to having more time to

be with my family.’’

Chen entered local body

politics in 2007 as a member

of the Riccarton-Wigram

Community Board. He served

three years on the board before

being elected councillor for the

Riccarton-Wigram ward in

2010.

He successfully stood for

re-election to the city council in

2013, 2016 and 2019.

Chen came to Christchurch

from Taiwan in 1996 with his

wife and two daughters. He

worked initially as a professional

interpreter before being encouraged

to get involved in local

politics.

The earthquakes, the Port

Hills fires, the mosque attacks

and the Covid-19 pandemic

have coloured his years of public

service. With all the challenges

that Christchurch has faced,

Chen said having to make decisions

on where to spend the city

council’s funds has been one of

the hardest aspects of his role as

a councillor.

“There is a big gap between

PROUD: Jimmy Chen with city council chief executive Dawn Baxendale.

residents’ demands and expectations

and what council can

actually provide or supply within

limited budgets,” he said.

Chen is particularly proud of

the role he played in securing

funding for four big capital projects

that will make a difference

for his community – the new

indoor pool complex, library and

customer service area for the

southwest of Christchurch (the

Matatiki: Hornby Centre), the

Halswell Junction Rd extension

project, the Hei Hei Community

Centre and the Te Hapua

Halswell Centre.

He is also proud of the work

that he has done to strengthen

Christchurch’s international

connections and to advance

multiculturalism.

He has chaired both the city

council’s international relations

working group and the council’s

multicultural committee.

He led the development of

Christchurch’s first Multicultural

Strategy, in partnership with

mana whenua, and has closely

monitored its implementation

as part of his commitment to

helping Christchurch become a

diverse, inclusive, harmonious

and socially-cohesive city.

Chen said Christchurch is far

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

more welcoming now of different

ethnicities than it was when he

first arrived here.

“It is getting better, however,

there is still a long way to

go,’’ said Chen, who received

a Distinguished Service

Award from the Christchurch

Multicultural Council in 2020

for his contributions to making a

Christchurch a more diverse and

inclusive city.

Signs unlock fishing spots for season

MORE THAN 100 new angler

access signs have gone up around

the North Canterbury Fish and

Game region in preparation for

the opening of the fishing season

next month.

The angler access signs unlock

a vast area of fishing spots for

people with a fishing licence.

The signs will largely replace

the worn out, dilapidated signs

– but several are for new access

points.

North Canterbury Fish

and Game has worked with

landowners to secure access

to these spots for anglers. The

access points will also be open

to other river users. There are

more than 400 angler access and

information signs in the region,

all the way from the Southern

Alps to the river mouths on the

coast.

Replacing these signs has

enabled Fish and Game staff to

also see how good the rivers are

looking for the opening of the

new season.

The lowland Selwyn River

is looking in great shape.

Continual strong river flows,

combined with Te Waihora/

Lake Ellesmere having several

periods where it has met the sea,

has made it possible for sea run

trout to enter the system in good

numbers.

The waterways up in the

Hurunui high country were also

in excellent condition and all

had good flows when staff visited

during the recent cold snap to

place new signs in the area.

The wet winter has also meant

plenty of water to help sea run

salmon return to the spawning

streams.

The new signs will help salmon

anglers access fishing spots when

they go fishing with the

new $5 sea-run salmon

harvest card required for

sea run salmon fishing.

Said North Canterbury

Fish and Game chief

executive Rasmus

Gabrielsson (right):

“Canterbury anglers have access

to some world-class

fisheries in the region.

We want to help anglers

of all ages and skill levels

access these fantastic

fisheries hence why we

have put in this work

over the winter months

to improve access for anglers.

“Anglers’ licence fees pay

for these signs, and many

anglers don’t realise where their

licence fees go. But whenever

they see an angler access sign

and access a river or lake, they

can see some tangible results

from purchasing a fishing

licence.”

LAYBY WELCOME

A word from Ilam MP

Sarah

Pallett

These past few weeks have been a time

of sadness for many following the death

of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s

funeral, the New Zealand State Memorial

service, and local memorial services have

been beautiful tributes to a life of devoted

service and dedication to her people.

The New Zealand House of

Representatives adjourned out of respect

and resumed sitting following the

Queen’s funeral.

At the time of writing this article,

we are expecting that the Accident

Compensation (Maternal Birth Injury

and Other Matters) Amendment Bill

will soon come before the House for

consideration at its third and final

reading.

At the moment, many women who

experience birthing injuries are not

eligible for ACC funded treatment and

support. This Bill addresses this historical

inequity.

I want to thank the Minister for ACC,

Hon Carmel Sepuloni, for bringing this

Bill to the House. She has, from the very

beginning, been absolutely determined

that this legislation will ensure that all

maternal birth injuries that can be caused

by childbirth are covered.

I have spent many hours working with

the Labour team on this legislation

and I am immensely proud of it. Using

my past experience as a midwife and

midwifery lecturer I have assisted the

Education Workforce Select Committee

as a subject matter expert to help shape

this legislation.

One of the reasons I became an MP was

to help make people’s lives better, and this

Bill does exactly that. Once enacted into

law it will enable an estimated 28,000

birthing people a year receive prompt

and effective care.

As always, I’m here to help. Please get

in touch on 0800 727 244 or pop into

my office if you need any assistance.

Inaugural festival celebrates all

• By Geoff Sloan

A DREAM became reality as

dancers jived and jitterbugged

their way around the dance floor

at the inaugural Vintage Fest NZ,

held at the Lincoln Event Centre

over the long weekend.

The brand new event was the

brainchild of Sharvelle Mackay,

a long-time fan of all things

vintage.

“This was an opportunity to put

the love of vintage into one place

and make a really prestigious

event for all of our vintage lovers,”

she said.

The festival showcased

everything vintage, with the

theme of wartime and the victory

era. Classic car and military

vehicles were on display, along

with vintage stall-holders and a

best dressed pageant.

Mackay said she worked with

her fellow committee members

for a year-and-a-half to create the

community event, but admits to a

few sleepless nights.

“It costs a lot of money to put on

an event like this, and to have the

money up front, to be able to pay

for certain things has been quite

difficult. So that has definitely

been our biggest challenge”.

Any proceeds will be reinvested

back into next year’s event, which

she hints might have an ‘old

Hollywood’ theme.

SENIOR BOYS BASKETBALL 2022

Secondary Schools Tournament

Palmerston North October 3rd - 7th, 2022

Hornby High School is proud to be sending our

senior boys’ Basketball Team to compete at the

New Zealand A Premiership Secondary School

Tournament to be held in Palmerston North. Covid

restrictions have meant that we have not been able

to attend the Secondary Schools’ Tournaments for

the last two years.

It is a massive achievement for the team and for

the sport of basketball at Hornby High School.

From small beginnings 15 years ago, basketball

has grown to become a popular sport at the

school. The national tournament will provide an

opportunity for these players to develop their own

play and compete at the highest level.

The development which has occurred in this

team has been evidenced by the achievements

the team has demonstrated throughout the year.

We are fortunate to be in the capable hands

of experienced head coach Jimmy Williamson

and ex Hornby High School student Brandon

Gray. They both bring a wealth of knowledge

and experience to the team and are able to support

players and set high expectations that encourage

them to play at their best ability.

In this year’s Thomson Trophy competition the

team played against eight teams throughout the

season. The team played impressively through

each game and managed to get to the semi-finals.

Unfortunately, they were not able to contain the

win, going down in the semi-finals.

This year’s Secondary Schools’ tournament was

held in Dunedin. This was a ‘first time’ experience

for the majority of our team members. Although it

was the first time playing in a basketball tournament

for the majority of the players, they were eager

to learn and hungry for the win. The players’

determination to win the tournament fueled their

amazing 6-0 run which allowed them to qualify

in the finals, losing to Aparima College by just the

narrowest of margins. Although the team lost the

finals, it was still an incredible achievement to have

come that far into the tournament.

As a result of our achievement at this Tournament,

we have qualified for the National Secondary Schools’

Tournament to be held in Palmerston North from Monday

the 3rd to Friday the 7th of October. Preparation for

the tournament has been intense and our players are

developing into a strong unit.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank

everyone who has supported us throughout this

journey.

GOAL: Harry Priestley marked his second participation in a dressage event at Christchurch Riding for the Disabled on Tuesday.

Young Harry happy to be back

in horse riding programme

• By Natalie Pham

SIX YEARS ago, Harry Priestley

got frustrated and walked away

from his horse riding programme.

The 11-year-old marked his

second participation in a dressage

event at the Christchurch equestrian

centre on Tuesday.

Harry was among 10 riders of

varying ages and disabilities taking

part in the event last week organised

by Christchurch Riding for the

Disabled.

Because the event focused on the

rider achieving the goal of completing

the test and getting marked

on the completion, each participant

received a certificate and a score

sheet.

Said CHCHRDA president

Philippa Parker: “We make it as

fun and relaxed as possible.”

All participants have been

attending weekly sessions prior

to the event, with each session

tailoring to their specific needs and

personal goals.

The Christchurch South

Karamata Intermediate pupil was

diagnosed with autism when he

was three.

Said his mother Rachel: “For

Harry and the way that his brain

works, it’s about what Harry wants

and what Harry needs. But as

humans, we need to learn how to

work with other people.”

Harry is enrolled in two programmes

– education and sport

and recreation, where he gets

to learn about horse riding and

challenges himself with exercises

require teamwork.

“Everyone has helped me in all

different ways,” he said.

“I used to get really, really angry

but now I don’t get angry at all.

Well, I’m better at managing my

anger than I used to.”

The organisation also offers a

therapy programme for riders who

have higher support needs, ranging

from building muscle strength to

improving walking ability.

Harry began the riding sessions

with New Zealand Riding for the

Disabled at five-years-old. However,

his sessions have been on and

off due to high demands.

Like many riders, he started with

a small pony and worked his way

up. After many years, he is finally

paired with Zeus - a ‘big and tall’

horse.

When Harry first walked in

with his new horse, Parker said he

looked proud of himself.

“Zeus challenges Harry to

work with it. That horse can be

independent if it wants to, so Harry

has to make sure that the horse is

listening to the instruction.”

SUCCESS: Harry was proud when he finally got paired up with his new horse Zeus.

Prawindra Mukhia Independent candidate for Councillor – Halswell Ward

Sustainable city for us and for our children

I am a new face to politics, but not new to

community works. I am of Nepali Tibetan

descent, originally from India and now proudly

a NZ citizen and have resided in Halswell for

over 6 years.

I am a mechanical engineer, have an MBA

degree and am a certified program and project

manager. I worked in the Council for 16 years

on many water supply projects and was

involved in the earthquake rebuild at SCIRT

(Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild

Team).

Three things I want to achieve if elected:

• Provide constructive input into the recent

draft version of the 30 year Christchurch

Transport Plan by the council. Support

sustainable plan for fast growing, traffic

constrained Halswell. The design should focus

on people’s mobility options rather than cars

only.

• Establish a requirement for sustainability

reporting for all projects, that will include

information on cost-benefits, carbon footprint,

reusage, wastage, and impacts on biodiversity,

air, water, land and well-being.

• Create SPICY (Sustainable Program for

Innovation and Collaboration with Youth)

by engaging schools with professional

associations.

This we can achieve by all working together:

councillors, council staff, Community Boards

to connect all sectors of the community.

As I am semi-retired, I am able to devote all

my time to this role.

Residents sick of shipping container site

• By Tina Grumball

A HIGH-PROFILE property

developer is the owner of an

industrial site at the centre of a

prolonged conflict with nearby

residents.

Across the Ōpāwaho

Heathcote River, home-owners

have suffered dust, constant

noise, and the obstruction of

their Port Hills views from the

Woolston site.

“You’re talking

about people’s lives

being disrupted

for a considerable

period of time,”

said Linwood Ward

Yani

Johanson

councillor Yani

Johanson.

“It’s not fair

on the local

community that this kind of

activity is allowed to occur,

unfettered and unabated, in my

view.”

Christchurch property

developer Richard Peebles,

and Peebles Group Ltd, own

the site. Peebles also co-owns

Riverside Market and Little

High Eatery.

The area being developed

is the last 12ha of the overall

industrial area to be completed,

Peebles said.

“Peebles Group Ltd take our

responsibilities very seriously

and have planned mitigation

measures to reduce the impact

on surrounding neighbours.”

BARRIER: Across the Ōpāwaho Heathcote River, the six-high container stacks are

obstructing residents’ views of the Port Hills. Right – before and after views from one

resident’s backyard.

While the construction

on-site has been occurring

for nearly two years, concerns

of shipping container storage

were first raised at the Waikura

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board meeting on

March 16.

In spite of concerns, the

containers were placed on the

site in early July.

“We could hear them

compacting the area down,

which was shaking out houses

and rattling windows and all

sorts of things,” Gould Cres

resident Susan Jones said.

‘People are tired of being woken up’

• From page 9

“Then one morning I woke up

. . . pulled the curtains across

and here’s these containers in

front of me,” Jones said.

No notification was given by

the city council. A spokesperson

said the company was “permitted

to establish on the site without

a resource consent subject

to compliance with certain

standards”.

While residents knew it was

an industrial zone, Jones said no

one had any idea it would become

a shipping container yard.

Another Gould Cres resident,

who preferred not to be named,

said containers were stacked five

or six high at 2.9m each. They

said, at 14.5-17.4m, the stacks

were in breach of the 11m height

restriction on the northern end

of the site, closest to the residential

areas.

A city council memo from

August 30, obtained by Western

News, suggested a stack of

containers could be defined as

a building, but that could be

legally challenged.

Peebles confirmed the restriction

on part of the site, however

he said “a container temporary

storage facility is not a building

and there is no height restriction

for storage”.

The city council spokesperson

said they were investigating the

issue.

Noise monitoring performed

by the city council on August 23

NOISY: Numerous residents said the workers on the site are operating outside the 7am-

5pm approved hours and causing sleepless nights.

PHOTO: JOHN COSGROVE

found noise limits to be breached

on two Long St properties, giving

the company working 14

days to comply.

Long St resident Melissa Mc-

Cutchan said they operate at all

hours of the day and night. Noise

complaints frequently come

from herself, her husband and

neighbours.

Johanson said: “It’s just been

really concerning to residents

and frustrating because concerns

are being raised, but the development

is progressing.”

McCutchan said it was “actually

mentally taking a toll now

because I dread going on maternity

leave for the fact that they’re

going to be working all-day and

all night . . . because in the home

it’s a constant drone”.

Any time a container was

dropped onto another, the noise

and vibrations caused her to

question if it was an earthquake.

Jones said: “People are sick and

tired of being woken up with the

banging and carrying on around

five in the morning. There is no

end in sight.”

Peebles confirmed there

had been one incident where a

worker had started half an hour

early, but could not give any

more details.

A resident on Long St himself,

Johanson noted there had been

repeated times where they had

been working well before 7am,

waking up the neighbourhood.

“They don’t have any respect

for the impact that they’re having

and it’s not fair.”

The city council spokesperson

said they would be performing

further testing, and had done so

last week but there was no work

going on.

If the Christchurch District

Plan noise rules were not being

complied with, the city council

would consider an escalated

enforcement approach.

In a positive step, a notice of

motion was passed at the most

recent city council meeting,

which noted concerns and

called for a report and advice

into how the district plan could

be changed by introducing

additional controls and public

notification requirements.

Construction on the part of

the site adjacent to residential

properties was due for completion

in October, Peebles said.

However, the facility was

a container yard and the

containers would come and go

and the space would be used for

logistics and container use in the

long-term.

Johanson received an update

from the city council last week

stating they had asked the owner

to comply under the Outline

Development Plan, with the 30m

setback requirements and to

reduce container stack heights

to 11m. Compliance was asked

by September 30, and if it is not

met, further enforcement action

was likely.

Kick into spring with

a plant-based diet

Alison Lambert has been balancing her weekly food budget

by digging into her pantry and experimenting with pulses

and grains, with warming results

Panelle – Sicilian chickpea fritters

Ingredients

230g chickpea flour

3 cups water, room temperature

2 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 litre vegetable oil

1 lemon

Sea salt flakes

Freshly cracked black pepper

PHOTOS: SIMON LAMBERT

Directions

Pour the water into a large bowl.

Gradually add the flour, stirring constantly

to remove all lumps.

Pour the mixture into a saucepan, and

cook over medium heat until thick like

polenta or porridge.

Remove from the heat and add salt and

pepper to taste. Add the parsley and stir to

combine.

Have a clean chopping board or something

similar ready.

Pour the mixture immediately on to

the board and spread evenly. Cover with

baking paper and gently roll to a thickness

of 4mm.

Cool the dough for at least 2 hours to

firm up.

Cut the dough into rectangles sized 5cm

x 3cm.

Pour the oil into a deep-sided, heavybased

pan. Heat to 170degC.

Cook two to four panelle at a time – it

is important not to overcrowd the pan.

Fry until golden for 3 minutes then turn

and cook for a further 3 minutes or until

golden and puffy. Remove with a slotted

spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

Continue until all the panelle are all

cooked.

Squeeze over a little lemon juice and

sprinkle sea salt and pepper.

Enjoy them as a tasty snack.

Quinoa crepes

Makes 10

Ingredients

1½ cup quinoa

1½ cups filtered water

1 cup tightly packed greens such as

spinach, silverbeet or kale

2 tsp coconut oil or olive oil

2 spring onions, roughly chopped

½ tsp salt

½ chilli

Coconut oil for cooking

Suggested toppings:

Grated carrot and beets

Tofu or tempeh

Cashew or chickpea hummus

Salad leaves

Sprouts, seeds and nuts

Directions

Begin by generously covering the quinoa

in cold water. Let sit for 12 hours at room

temperature.

Drain the quinoa and rinse.

Place the quinoa, filtered water, greens,

coconut oil, spring onions, salt and chilli

in a blender.

Blend until smooth.

Pour the batter into a non reactive bowl

and let sit at room temperature for at least

6-12 hours. You will notice little bubbles

appearing on the surface. This is perfectly

fine, in fact this is part of the fermentation

process. This stage will help be kind on

your gut.

When ready to cook, place a medium

sized fry pan over moderate heat.

Add a little coconut oil and ladle or

measure about ¼ cup, gently smooth out

the crepe so it is a circle 12-15cm diameter.

Cook for 3 minutes or until you see the

crepe change colour, flip and cook the

other side for 2 minutes more. Remove and

repeat until the crepes are all cooked.

You can eat these with a filling and roll

up and enjoy, you can use as you would

bread and scoop up dips etc. I like to have

many tasty bowls of ingredients laden over

the table and place the crepes around so

you can assemble your own.

Risingholme Community Centre

sticking to their roots with new

brand “Risingholme Learning”

We are pleased to announce that Risingholme

Community Centre is now trading as

Risingholme Learning. The rebrand includes a

rollout of a new logo and a new website.

Our new brand pays homage to the last 75+

years, the present and is a `nod to the future’.

The rebrand highlights Risingholme’s focus on

the importance of lifelong learning.

For over 75 years Risingholme Learning has

operated under the same roof, with the same

goals and values: to promote community spirit

through face-to-face adult education.

Although the centre has officially rebranded

from `Risingholme Community Centre’

to ‘Risingholme Learning’ Director Lynda

Megson, wants to ensure the message is still the

same.

“We’ve been running for over 75 years and

plan to run for another 75+ years” Megson says.

“We are continuing to provide the

community opportunities to gain new skills,

knowledge and experiences by providing a wide

range of exciting courses at different locations

across the city. Every term, we have over 800

enrolments, so the demand for learning new

things is a priority for many” Megson says.

“The Risingholme homestead and park in

Opawa is still our base and so acknowledges

our history. We have kept our green colour

and the ‘R’ of our name to reflect the park and

previous branding and are using one of our

park’s trees to better reflect our mission. Our

own ‘tree of life’ represents the relationships

we nurture with our communities: growth,

learning, connections, enjoyment, and strength,

all held within the maturity of our 75+ years

of operation. We believe our rebrand is a fresh

way of communicating this” Megson says.

With term 4 fast approaching, it’s the perfect

time to check out our new website and see the

amazing variety of courses.

Most of Risingholme Learning courses

start the week of Monday 17 October 2022.

Check individual course starting dates on the

website.

Brougham Street and Halswell Road are being

upgraded through the New Zealand Upgrade Programme. These two major

roads will change to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety, support more

transport choices, and provide more reliable travel times.

Halswell Road improvements include:

• Peak hour bus lanes in each direction along Lincoln Road from Whiteleigh Avenue to Curletts Road.

• Relocated and new bus stops, shelters and seats.

• Wide 4.2 metre bus lanes on Lincoln Road between Wrights Road and Curletts Road, providing

more room for cyclists.

• The raised centre median will also improve the safety for cyclists using the Nor’West Arc Cycleway.

• Three extra pedestrian crossing points in the centre median to make it safer and easier to cross the road.

• Widening the footpath along Lincoln Road between Curletts and Wrights roads to 2.3 metres. It currently varies

from 1.3 metres to 1.7 metres wide.

• Domain Terrace – remove the right turn in and out. Torrens Road – remove the right turn out on to Lincoln Road,

but retain the right turn in.

• Removal of on-street parking when the bus lanes are operational between Curletts Road and Wrights Road.

On-street parking can be utilised outside of bus peak hour times.

• Existing parking bays on Lincoln Road between Lindores Street to Twigger Street will be retained on both sides.

Brougham Street improvements include:

• An overbridge at Collins Street and Simeon Street for greater cyclist and pedestrian safety.

• New T2 lanes that will operate in the morning and afternoon/evening when roads are busiest.

• A shared cycle and pedestrian path.

• More protected right turn arrows on all right turns off Brougham Street.

• New traffic lights at the Brougham Street/Montreal Street intersection.

• More plants along the south side of Brougham Street.

• And more!
