Six personal bests: Luka

blazes a trail in the pool

• By Jaime Cunningham

LUKA WILLEMS has qualified

for the Virtus Global Games,

after a successful six weeks of

international competion as the

only Down Syndrome athlete

representing the country in the

pool.

The Jellie Park JASI club

athlete was the first and only

New Zealander to compete at

the World Down Syndrome

Championships in Portugal

last month, celebrating his 20th

birthday as well as six personal

bests in eight races over the six

days.

Although sometimes he

“wanted to go home,” Willems,

of Papanui, produced some

strong results, particularly

in the T21 senior 50m

breaststroke, where he finished

13th.

“My breaststroke is really

improving, and I like it more

and more,” he said.

Shortly after the Portugal

event, he was one of 15 New

Zealanders to participate in the

Virtus Oceania Asia Games in

Brisbane.

As the first Kiwi athlete to

compete in the II-2 (Down

Syndrome) category, Willems

certainly made his mark,

winning bronze in the 50m

freestyle as well as gaining three

fourth placings in the games.

He has now qualified for the

2023 Virtus Global Games.

swimming team to Brisbane

they

did an “amazing

Luka set

for global

games after

making a

splash

• From page 1

The three-time Paralympic

gold medallist said Willems is

a “unique” athlete in the way

he is “blazing a trail for others

living with Down Syndrome and

swimming”.

“While as a swimming nation

we are very early into our Down

Syndrome inclusion, we are

committed to helping Luka

and the next generation of

swimmers with Down Syndrome

who haven’t made it into our

competitive events as yet,” Leslie

said.

Willems’ mother Anqelique van

der Velden said without Leslie’s

help, the opportunity for Willems

to compete at the Virtus Games

“wouldn’t have happened”.

“He is trying to open up

accessibility for swimming

athletes with disabilities at an elite

level. It’s so awesome.”

For Willems, it’s just the start

of a successful international

swimming career, as he begins

preparations for the Virtus Global

Games, held in France next year.

“I hope my journey inspires

people to do something new and

maybe challenging too.”

Part of Ilam Rd closed

for cycleway repairs

A SHORT section of Ilam

Rd will be closed for a week

as part of the cycleway is

repaired.

For the contractor to finish

the work as quickly as

possible, the road near the

intersections of Kirkwood

and Rountree Aves will be

shut to traffic from Saturday

to December 11.

“During the cycleway

resurfacing works that were

completed earlier this year,

the road wasn’t showing signs

of failure. Since then we have

we found significant cracking

in an area from 71 Ilam

Rd for around 80m south to

the paved threshold near the

Kirkwood Ave intersection.

“This has worsened over

time with the volume of daily

traffic, including buses and

trucks,” city council transport

planning and delivery manager

Jacob Bradbury said.

“We carried out tests and

discovered there wasn’t

enough gravel beneath the

asphalt, so we need to remediate

that.”

Traffic detours will be

in place, while pedestrian

and cycle access will be

maintained through the

closure.

“We know it’s not ideal

having to come back to do

repairs in a short space of

time so we really want to

thank residents and those at

the University of Canterbury

for their patience,” Bradbury

said.

This is a belated thanks from me for the efforts of you and your team in the

sale of Conifer Place.

You did an outstanding job of marketing the property and Mark really

appreciated the work you did on the day of the auction to get the sale over

the line at a price I was more than happy with.

Apologies for the lateness of this acknowledgement, but once again, a

big thanks to you and the team at Harcourts Gold!

Packed with the spirit of Christmas

• By Natalie Pham

THIS YEAR marks the fifth

annual Christmas giveaway by

Furnitoyz – a Hornby-based

company that makes children’s

toys and furniture by hand.

Furnitoyz has delivered a new

mud kitchen and 30 backpacks

filled with essential school supplies

to Pareawa Banks Avenue

School, after the school was the

lucky winner of its giveaway.

Owner Michelle Dickie said it

was a chance to give back to the

community.

Since opening Furnitoyz, the

former pre-school teacher and

her husband Euan have been

trying to have a giveaway every

year.

“Last year we were watching

the news . . . and people were

struggling to get schoolbags

and all the bits and bobs that

go along with it to get kids into

school,” she said.

“So we thought this year, we

will see if we can do roughly a

classroom-size worth of schoolbags.”

The giveaway, which was

open to all schools across New

Zealand, received more than 150

entries.

Pareawa Banks Avenue School

principal Toni Burnside said it

was nice for some pupils to get a

bit extra at this time of year.

“We are proud of our school

and our tamariki. And it’s nice

GIVEAWAY: Ebony-Rose (left) and Claire, with two of the backpacks won by Pareawa

Banks Avenue School. Top right – Furnitoyz owner Michelle Dickie (left) with principal Toni

to have that positive community

recognition. We know that when

our tamariki get those backpacks,

they will be so excited,”

she said.

Two pupils from each class

who represent the school’s values

will be selected to receive the

backpacks.

Burnside said there will also be

a small, added criteria.

“We know some of the children

in those classes need a wee

‘pick me up’. Things are tough

at the moment for families and

the community, so teachers will

be looking through that lens as

well.”

The new mud kitchen is now

ready to go, but has not yet been

installed in the school playground.

Said Burnside: “To get that

as part of the prize, it’s amazing.

Our juniors love playing with

water and pretending to make

plates.”

Last year, Furnitoyz also

donated three pallets of foods

and hygiene products to

Christchurch, Auckland and

Wellington city missions.

Home for sale with its own football pitch

• By Nikki Preston

A NEAR-NEW characterinspired

home in Cashmere

kicks all others out of the

park and could even become a

training ground for an up-andcoming

football star.

The four-bedroom, two-bathroom

home at 156 Hackthorne

Rd is gaining fans not only for

its colonial-inspired modern

twist but also for its 125 sq m

astro-turf in the backyard.

Scottish-born Darren Bruce

built the home for his family

three years ago and said they

wanted to combine the best

attributes of warm United Kingdom

homes, while also admiring

New Zealand’s character weatherboard

houses.

Totem Architects was enlisted

to design the solid heritagestyle

weatherboard home with

wooden detailing and a raft of

mod cons including a hydronic

in-slab heating system, Earthwool

insulation, a 10.5Kw twoway

solar system, an ultra-low

emission wood burner, two heat

pump and Argon-filled timber

windows.

Bruce’s own building firm BD

Construction then took a year to

build the house on the sloping

Cashmere section which, according

to OneRoof property records,

was purchased in June 2018 for

$525,614.

The existing house was demolished

to make way for the new

home and large retaining walls

were put up to create a large flat

area for the astro-turf.

The house was completed at

the end of 2020.

“We’ve got a boy who is addicted

to football so the astro-turf

pitch just seemed like the best

thing to do to keep them busy,”

Bruce said.

And while he admits they may

have underestimated the cost of

building an artificial pitch, the

end result has provided hours of

entertainment for his kids.

“Obviously we were a little bit

naïve about how much it would

actually cost to do it, but they

love it because it’s just used so

much. We’ve got kids here all the

time because it’s here.

“It doesn’t get bogged down,

doesn’t get muddy so the kids are

on it all the time.”

The high nets also mean the

ball stays on the right side of the

property, he said.

Bruce said the property is perfect

for entertaining and would

suit a family with two or three

children.

“They would love having awesome

views, but also conscious

that the electricity bills are pretty

low because of the way it is built

and the solar and that.”

Bruce said, even though they

had “spent everything on the

house”, he now has his sights

MODERN:

This

Hackthorne

Rd property

has its own

astro turf

and stylish

kitchen

(above).

on a renovation project with a

bigger section so they could have

not only an astro-turf but also a

workshop and enough parking

for his caravan and boat.

“If we can get the same and

still be able to bring the caravan

back that would be perfect.”

Harcourts Grenadier listing

agent Fernanda Hammett, who

is set to auction the home next

month, said the football pitch

is proving a big hit at the open

homes.

A family with three boys

attended an open home at the

weekend when it was pouring

down with rain and she said they

raced straight down to play on it.

“They didn’t even care it was

raining, they just kept playing

because you don’t get dirty do

you, it’s artificial grass.

“It’s amazing that you get to

have this kind of backyard in

your own home plus you have

a view – you have everything

there.”

Parents can sit under the veranda

and unwind while watching

the kids play on the turf, she

said, or relax in the spa in the

undercover pergola at the back of

the section.

In spite of being on a hill and

having views over Christchurch

city, the section itself is flat and

the house is both warm with

underfloor heating and solar

panels.

“It’s an economical house and

it is very good for the environment.”

It had also been beautifully

crafted with impressive attention

to detail, she said.

“Everything is new, but has a

character feel.”

Silly signs confuse drivers

MOTORISTS HAVE often lamented

at the signage on one of the main

routes from Lincoln to Halswell.

Now they say a temporary speed

sign which was put up on Trices Rd

near the bend with Sabys last week

takes the cake.

Motorists heading from Sabys onto

Trices towards Lincoln and Prebbleton

would have seen a 30km/h sign as

maintenance work was carried out.

But the other side of the sign, which

was for motorists heading on Trices

towards Sabys read 80.

A 30km/h temporary sign was

also put up on Ellesmere Rd close to

the tricky Trices Rd bend, meaning

motorists travelling in that direction

were first confronted with a temporary

30 sign, then the permanent 35km/h

sign on the bend, then the confusing

80 sign, followed by the permanent

60km/h sign and then the permanent

25 sign at the Trices, Sabys bend – all

within about 250m of each other.

The confusing 80 sign was removed

the day after it was put up.

“Traffic management? More like

traffic mis-management,” a motorist

told Western News.

“No different to further back on

Ellesmere by Tosswill Rd.’’

Near that junction, motorists

travelling towards Halswell on

Ellesmere Rd have a 45km/h sign

warning of a bend at Tosswill Rd,

followed shortly after by an 80 sign,

and then the 45 warning sign on the

bend itself.

“So we have a 45 sign then an 80 and

then just after that its 45 again at the

bend. Crazy,” the motorist said.

Above – The temporary 80km/h sign and the permanent 60 and 25 signage

on Trices Rd near Sabys, and below the 45 followed by the 80 with another

45km/h sign further along Ellesmere Rd.

Young tennis stars to play on big stage

FOUR YOUNG tennis players

have earned the opportunity

to play centre-court in a new

tournament in the lead up to

Auckland’s ASB Classic early

next year.

Bishopdale players Aliyah

Daly, 11, and Nicholas Rayner,

12, along with Burnside Park’s

Sakeri Parnell, 13, will compete

in the Road to the ASB Classic

competition in January after

qualifying through regional

playoffs last week. Cashmere’s

qualified.

The inaugural Road to the ASB

Classic is presented by Jaguar

and the Lavie Tennis Academy, a

performance tennis organisation

from all areas of the country

competing in a 16-player pool,

Classic men’s singles final on

January 14.

Academy founder and owner

Sebastian Lavie said the organisation

is “delighted” to give

young tennis players the opportunity

to compete on the courts

Apprentice baker’s swift rise to the top

• By Natalie Pham

EMILY BAILLIE was in the

third year of her apprenticeship

when she rose to become the

best young bread baker in the

country.

The 20-year-old said she

never expected to win the New

Zealand Association of Bakers

competition.

“I was in shock. I was the

youngest competitor with the

least experience and I thought

my competitors would win it. I

actually almost cried.”

Besides the title, Baillie was

also awarded a $10,000 research

grant.

This year, there were four

craft bakers and two plant bread

bakers taking part in the twoday

competition in Auckland,

which included a presentation on

a given topic, a 90-minute theory

test and a five-hour baking

session.

Each participant was required

to make a range of breads,

including two loaves of white

sandwich bread, two different

types of white loaves, four

different types of smallgoods,

two variety loaves of grain or

wholemeal bread, and four

different types of sweet bun.

Baillie said recipes for the

breads were given two months

before the competition so

participants could memorise and

use them on the day.

However, there were many

things that could affect the result

of the breads, in spite of having

the same recipe.

“My competitor had the same

recipe, but she didn’t know them.

So in one of the breads, it was

supposed to be 1.5 per cent salt

but she put 1 per cent salt. Little

things like that can really affect

the bread and how it works,”

Baillie said.

“It’s also personal skills like

how you shaped it, how you mix

it, how long you let it rest for – all

sorts of different things.”

The young baker is now

planning to represent New

Zealand at the prestigious LA

Judge Awards in 2024 – a threeday

competition recognising the

best young baking apprentices in

Australia and New Zealand.

Baillie discovered her love for

baking in a one-year cooking

course, which then led to an

apprenticeship with a bakery in

baker after winning a two-day competition in Auckland

with this delicious selection. She also received a $10,000

research grant as part of the award. PHOTO: STAR MEDIA

Hokitika in her final year of

high school.

Six months later, she moved

to Christchurch to broaden her

horizons. Since then, Baillie has

been working at the Bohemian

Bakery.

So far, the unusual working

hours have been the biggest

challenge.

“It’s not normal to wake up

and get to work at 1am. It’s

definitely a challenge to change

your body clock completely and

working at a completely different

time to everybody around you.

“It’s a bit hard to have any type

of social life,” she said.

The $10,000 award will go towards

a baking course overseas.

However, Baillie has not decided

where to go yet.

At the moment, she is looking

to specialise in pastry after

completing her qualification in

baking.

Start a new

Christmas tradition

What could be better than starting some new family traditions this year? Christmas traditions are memories

in the making and help spread a little festive cheer whether with your loved ones or out in the community.

10 great ideas to help make Christmas a magical time of the year

1. Create a Christmas playlist with some of

your favourite carols and songs – play it

loud and every day, if that’s your thing.

Or plan a pre-Christmas sing-along

evening – don’t forget to supply the song

sheet so everyone can join in too.

2. Get into the spirit of Christmas by getting

together with family or friends to help

decorate each other’s houses – turn up

the music, drink the wine and go all out

to deck the halls.

3. Make and send homemade Christmas

cards – there’s nothing more exciting

than getting mail, right? Or how about

writing some generic ones and dropping

them into your nearest retirement

home to brighten up an elderly person’s

Christmas.

4. Buy your family Christmas tee-shirts or

Santa hats to wear on the day and don’t

forget to take a family selfie.

5. Fill a shoebox with gifts for a child, wrap

it with a bow, and deliver to the nearest

community gift tree – check with your

local library and label with age and

gender.

6. Have a yearly family, friends or neighbour

outdoor games night with drinks and

nibbles leading up to the big day – think

Pétanque, hoopla, mini golf, giant chess,

or croquet.

7. Take a leaf out of Iceland’s traditional

‘Jolabokaflod’ or Christmas Book Flood,

and give a book as a gift on Christmas

Eve each year – don’t forget to write

inside the cover who it’s from and the

date.

8. Make a list of must see Christmas movies

to watch a week before Christmas day

and tick off the ones you’ve watched.

Don’t forget the popcorn and hot

chocolate or nibbles and wine.

9. Make and give a handmade ornament

as a gift each year – the lucky receiver’s

Christmas tree will be covered with

beautiful, handmade memories.

10. Make homemade hot chocolate on

Christmas Eve or on Christmas morning

to drink while the presents are being

opened – decorate with whipped cream,

grated chocolate, marshmallows, or

crushed candy canes.

flour if too soft. Knead until

smooth and sticking together.

This could take up to five minutes.

Divide dough into four. Roll

out on a lightly floured bench to

form long skinny sausages, about

2cm in diameter.

MISSING

Our lovely cat has been missing since

6th November and was last seen on

Leicester Crescent, Hoon Hay on the

16th November.

HAVE YOU

SEEN HER?

She is recognisable

as her eye is weeping

and looks sore.

She will be scared as she has always lived on a

quiet farm until we brought her into the city.

If you see her can you please phone us as soon

as you can on 0274 330 616 or try to encourage

her to come inside for some food. Thank you.

We’ll be working

on Ilam Road

We’re resurfacing a section of Ilam Road near Kirkwood Avenue from

Saturday 3 December until Sunday 11 December.

To complete the work as quickly as we can, Ilam Road will be closed

Detours will be in place so please allow extra travel time.

Pedestrian and cycle access will be available through the closure.

We know road works are disruptive for you and we’ll get out

Who can you trust with your hearing?

Hearing loss can creep up on you very

gradually, quite often over several years.

The first signs of this are often a reduction

in speech clarity, or difficulties conversing

with people in social situations, such as a

restaurant or family gathering. Other early

signs are ringing in the ears (tinnitus) or a

gradual increase in your TV volume level.

These issues can be very frustrating, and

are quite often first noticed by your family.

Hear Again have extensive experience of

helping to overcome hearing difficulties.

From a simple check to see if your ears

are blocked with wax, to the provision and

highly personalized fine tuning of the very

latest hearing devices; the professional,

friendly team are here to help, even if you

need to be seen on a weekend.

We take the time to listen to you and do

everything at your pace. There is a reason

we have so many 5 star Google reviews.

Come have a chat with us at The Hub,

418 Main South Road, Hornby, next to

Japan Mart from Monday to Saturday.
