By Julia Evans AT NIGHT, the fresh tarmac of Islington’s new Waterloo Business Park becomes a race track for cars, motor-cycles and even karts. Those living in nearby residential Brixton, Wilson and Mortlake Sts are being kept up by a chorus of revving, skidding, racing and burnouts. And when developers of the business park go to work on a Monday morning, they often find empty bottles and rubbish strewn across footpaths, gardens and the street, as well as the black tyre marks all over the roads. Residents and businesses are fed up, Waterloo Business Park project manager Ashley McLachlan said. “Sadly, there has been a small number of people using the roads and parks in a destructive manner, which impacts on the businesses based here and our neighbours. We want people from our community to feel welcome and safe,” he said. •Turn to page 5

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THERE’S A great appeal starting at your local Countdown supermarket next month. And if you look at our front page photo today you will understand why. The annual Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal starts early next month and every dollar that goes into it helps children like eightyear-old Jacob Matua. The tremendous smile Jacob had for the camera belies the perilous situation he – and many others like him – are in. Each year, Countdown supermarkets run an appeal to help provide equipment for patients using Christchurch Hospital’s paediatric and neo-natal services. And the good news is: Jacob is doing well. “He’s making great progress,” his aunt says. – Barry Clarke

Motorway to open a year earlier

THE WESTERN Corridor project is almost a year ahead of schedule. And the $112 million Russley Rd upgrade is on track to open early next year. “The early completion of the project would help relieve congestion and support economic growth in the Canterbury region,” Transport Minister Simon Bridges said. He said the 10 months that has been shaved off the timetable comes down to good weather and contractors bringing down extra resources as well as staff. By the end of next month, traffic will be travelling from the airport to the city under the

overbridge and, by the end of the year, traffic on State Highway 1 would travel over the overbridge. The Russley Rd upgrade is one of the six sections of the $350 million Western Corridor upgrade from Belfast to Hornby to a four-lane, median-separated highway. Three of the six sections are completed with the remaining three under way and will be completed by the end of next year. PROGRESS: The airport arches are 10 months ahead of schedule.

Toilet block looking likely for Harrington Park By Julia Evans RESIDENTS HAVE been asking for toilets in Harrington Park for more than a year – those calls have finally been answered. At the city council Annual Plan meeting, it approved $115,000 to go towards the block of public toilets. Last year, residents living in the Riccarton west area called

for the public toilets because of the high usage of the park during community days. There are three linked reserves including Harrington Park, Paeroa Reserve and Shand Crescent Reserve but there are no public toilets. The closest are at Westfield Riccarton or The Warehouse on Blenheim Rd. Eight submissions were made to the city council for last year’s Annual Plan, representing sev-

eral community groups. But at the time, city council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said the focus for public toilets was on sports, garden parks and heritage sites, where the user numbers are significant. However, Mr Rutledge said during this year’s Annual Plan process staff were again asked whether Harrington Park would meet the criteria for the provision of a toilet block.

News Watery way to read central city poem By Julia Evans SAMANTHA Jory-Smart’s literary work is now part of the city’s history. But her poem, A Promise, can only be seen when it’s wet. The Burnside High School student was asked to write the poem to feature on one of the central city laneways. The Mollett St block of the South Frame was recently opened by Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner. It features a pounamu built into the pavement. But it is more importantly the home to the country’s first raining poetry installation. Samantha’s poem has been printed onto the pavement in invisible chemical spray that only reveals itself when wet. She said the poem came from a mix of wanting to include Maori culture, a tale about the mataī tree, and create a sense of Christchurch’s regrowth. “It’s amazing to contribute to Christchurch and be a part of the rebuild,” Samantha said. Mrs Wagner helped Samantha unveil the poem by pouring water from a watering can over it. She said it was exciting Mollett

St was the country’s first raining poetry installation. “For the first time, I suddenly get

a feeling of what the city is going to look like,” Mrs Wagner said. When completed in 2019, the

South Frame’s pavements and laneways will span seven blocks in the central city.

The Promise The Mataī tree grows astride Kahikatea, Tōtara watching over. Black pine and white pine clustered, unfold together, peel into the sky as does Mollett Street: soul encased in heartwood sapwood stripped away. Ruia taitea kia tū ko taikākā anake. The wood is forged with channels for the rain, its branches arch to embrace us all for a thousand years a promise.

Bid to stop hoons at business park •From page 1 Business park developers have organised security patrols and are in the midst of organising security cameras so they can gather evidence, which will then be passed on to police. And the city council is also offering a hand to try and deal with the “anti-social” behaviour. It is proposing restricted access to roads in the park Ashley McLachlan at night, as part of the prohibited times on road’s bylaw. “The proposed restrictions will assist the city council, police and residents in addressing the unsocial and destructive behaviour that has been happening in the business park,” Mr McLachlan said. The restricted access will also work with no stopping along Halswell Junction Rd, Pound Rd and Waterloo Rd. The restrictions would apply from 10pm to 5am, seven days a week. Streets that could be restricted

Another wheelie bin fire sparks further fears By Andrew King ANOTHER WHEELIE bin has been set alight in Burnside fuelling further fears for residents’ safety. For the past three months bins on the street and on driveways, near houses, have been deliberately set on fire in the Burnside, Bryndwr and Ilam areas. The latest arson was on Memorial Ave, near the intersection of Greers Rd, at about 3.30am on Saturday. Police are following up the incident. Last Saturday, six wheelie bins were set alight with Detective Sergeant Mike Freeman urging the perpetrator to talk to them before anyone is seriously hurt. “Police are treating the incidents as arson and believe they are linked to previous wheelie bin fires in the area,” Detective Sergeant Freeman said. The previous four attacks were in May but there had been a period of at least a month where there had been no fires. Residents in the area have also been told by police to keep their wheelie bins out of sight.

Countdown to supermarket Countdown‘s upcoming appeal will help provide equipment for patients using Christchurch Hospital’s paediatric and neo-natal services. Sarla Donovan visited cancer sufferer, eightyear-old Jacob Matua, who benefits from the equipment JACOB MATUA has visited this place many times. He’s in the Children’s Haematology and Oncology Centre in the Riverside building at Christchurch Hospital, where’s he’s hooked up to an infusion pump dispensing the medicine he needs. It’ll be 10pm before this day’s treatment is over. After the eight-year-old started getting “headaches and tummy pain, neck pain, arm pain,” at the end of last year, a cancer diagnosis followed, along with nearly three months in hospital, getting treatment. Now he comes in for shorter stays – four days this time – and is crossing his fingers that he

attend his school, Burnside Primary, at the moment. He couldn’t even eat his birthday

chocolate cake in May: “Because sometimes I don’t eat,” he said. Charge nurse manager Chrissy

Bond lightens the mood: “I wish I could say that!” The nurses play cards with him, including memory and skip bo. Lucy Stephenson, who is supervising today, says he’s quite the card shark. “I win every time,” Jacob says with a grin. His aunt Ula Faamoe sits with him, too, giving his mum – who has four other children including twin three-year-old’s – a break. She says he’s well at the moment: “The best I’ve seen him since starting the chemotherapy. He’s making great progress.” Beside his bed, a tall pump stand holds all kinds of medicines and beeping equipment. The $5000 stand is one of four in the centre, purchased with money from the Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal in 2013. Mrs Bond said it holds five to six pumps and keeps the medicines stable, as well as allowing nurses to easily read information on screens attached to the pumps. “DHBs find equipment like this hard to fund, because we can ‘make do’ with inferior (devices). It isn’t essential, but it just makes everybody’s life easier,” she said.

Last year’s appeal raised $123,270 for Christchurch Hospital’s paediatric wards and neo-natal unit. Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal chairwoman Ruth Krippner says most kiwi kids will visit hospital at some stage in their childhood. She said Countdown is proud to play a part in helping provide these hospitals with the equipment needed to treat illness and injury. “Whether it’s a one off visit for a minor injury or a lengthy stay for a serious illness, most New Zealand children will have a brush with a children’s hospital ward at some point​– just like this family,” Ms Krippner said. “Thanks to the generosity of our customers and the fundraising efforts of the Countdown

Last year, we raised ​ more than $1.1 million, and we’re hoping to do the same this year.” Meanwhile, Jacob is busy putting on his “best face” for the photographer. “Does a picture come out of that?” he asks.

To the hypnotic beat of djembe drums and breath-taking lighting effects, Riccarton High School’s Disney’s The Lion King Junior created joy and magic. Six capacity audiences gasped, cheered, wept, laughed and were enchanted by the school’s latest musical production. Principal’s assistant Karen Churchward said the singing, acting and dancing was of a professional quality. “The brilliant set, stunning costumes, masks and make-up that morphed students into vibrant African birds and amazing animals delivered creative magic and delight,” she said.

Build your next home with Artisan Homes Your local registered Master Builder Home building is as much about understanding the landscape and the client as it is the plan and the materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our small company has built a huge range of homes that are distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective. From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work spans all types of house building. Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a reputation for constructing high quality houses. An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is passionate about the quality results they produce. With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes have worked in all areas of residential construction. There are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our overall approach remains the same. While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted home building we also are renowned for getting the right result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our larger competitors we do have their networks and buying power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective results possible. At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for people who appreciate the work that goes into what will, ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

The new Swimsmart Membership is here! The new Swimsmart membership offers a new approach to learning to swim. Swimsmart members will get free, unlimited access to all Christchurch City Council pools outside of regular lesson times. This provides kids with extra opportunities to practise their swimming skills! Customers will now be able to enrol for a membership that offers up to 48 weeks of lessons per year. The new membership also allows customers to pay on a more regular basis via direct debit instead of paying for a full term up front.

Grading of children’s swimming skills occurs on a regular basis, so they can move up a level as soon as they’re ready. If there’s no space available at that level at a suitable time, your child will go on a waitlist and get some advanced instruction at their current level. Book now to secure your child’s spot! Call (03) 377 7690, email swimsmart@ ccc.govt.nz or visit the Swimsmart offices at Jellie Park, Graham Condon or Pioneer to book. For more information check out www.ccc.govt.nz/swimsmart

Your Local Views CYCLE: An initiative to get people leaving their cars at home may be given a second chance. PHOTO: ANDREW KING

Readers write about what it would take to get them cycling to Jellie Park Sport and Recreation Centre Connie Kruse Christensen – Free entry would make me cycle to the swimming pools. But needs more promoting to schools, workplaces and greater community for people to know it exists. Nic Davies – Warm weather. Sadly, I’m not much of a biker but have to say love these new cycle ways that are being made. If I was more into biking I’d feel damn safer using them with all the crazy car drivers about. Lynn Mortlock – The first trial held in the middle of summer and 117 visits were recorded, which according to the organiser was a success.




Welcome to Christchurch, which caters for the minority and the majority suffer.

Anna Barclay – Nothing! Don’t waste the money there’s still people using chemical toilets in New Brighton.

Vanessa Gibson – Haha! Don’t they have a major problem with theft there?!

Anna Henderson – Probably will anyway but cycle lanes the whole way would help. Feels much safer!

Warren Kemp – For a start a push-bike. Oh, and warmer weather. Then I will need motivation (extremely low when it comes to push-bikes) and better roads. What about self-propelled push-bikes? And we could put a cage around them for safety. Wait a minute that sounds like a car. Yes! A car would work for me.

Dennis Rogers – It makes sense to bike as you’re saving at least $1000-plus a year leaving your car at home. It’s extra money in your pocket. Danielle Aitken – Advertise it more. I saw nothing about the last trial at all.

Jason Gemmill – Give it up! Stop trying to force people out of cars and on to bikes. If we wanted to, we would. But clearly the vast majority of us are not interested in cycling.

Jillian Nuth – I’d love to but the traffic is terrifying. Heather Wilkins – Nothing. Why would I be going to Jellie Park?

Giant Fantasy Sand Castle at The Hub These school holidays The Hub Hornby will be hosting a team of artists to construct a giant fantasy sand castle. Lead by artist Asheley Elizabeth the team have worked on sand sculptures both locally and overseas and their work has been recognised by some of the world’s leading sand sculptors. The same team created the very popular Creatures at Leisure sand sculpture at The Hub previously which was New Zealand’s largest indoor sand sculpture at the time. Utilising stacked wooden forms the sand is compacted one layer at a time until the final height is reached. The top form is then removed and the artists start carving form the top down removing each form as they work their way downwards. The sand is kept damp throughout the process





to stop it drying out and crumbling. The rough crystalline and cubic shape of New Zealand sand is great to work with as it locks together and really allows for some great detail to be achieved. The sculpture will be created in the Centre from 10 July onwards with the finished sculpture on display from 17-22 July.

The under-13 team won the shield in the first game of the season and have successfully defended it for 11 weeks.

Saturday was no exception with St Bede’s defaulting. The shields were created in 2005 and it is the first time St Thomas’ teams have held both of them at the same time. A glance at the names etched on them shows no school has held them both at the end of the season, something the college wants to change. There are three more games in the regular season and, if they can hold on to the shields for those, the teams will have

their names engraved, then lock the shields away until next season. The shields are not defended during the finals. School sports coordinator Neville Brooker said it is a great thing for the future of rugby at the college. “Junior rugby is very strong (and), as a school, we have decided to put a lot of time and coaching resource into this age group to try and develop the rugby players from a young age,” he said.

GREAT VICTORY: Burnside High will look to hold onto the Connetics Shield after missing out on the national competition. PHOTO: BURNSIDE HIGH

BURNSIDE HIGH is ruing poor early season form which has cost them a spot in the nationals. But coach David Williams is not looking to blame outside forces, saying it was gutting but entirely their own fault. Four teams were selected from the Connetics first XI football competition to compete at the Boys Lotto Premier Football Tournament in Napier from September 4-8. “A draw against Shirley and letting Cashmere back into the game, which also ended up being a draw, didn’t help. If either of those games had of been a win instead of a draw, then we would be in Napier,” he said. St Andrew’s College, St Thomas, Lincoln High and Cashmere High have all made the cut for the 32-team national tournament. The teams were picked during round eight when the top four included the selected teams. Burnside were fifth in round eight, but have since moved to third after wins against Middleton Grange and Lincoln High. In their match against Lincoln, Burnside also won the Connetics Shield for the first time. However, Burnside were denied a wildcard entry into nationals, with

Nelson’s Waimea College and Wellington College snapping up the last two spots. “We will now focus on trying to win the Rex Dawkins tournament in Palmerston North,” Williams said. That tournament runs at the same time as nationals. Williams said with two games and a bye left in the Connetics competition, the goal is to finish strong and hold on to the Connetics Shield. The competition now takes a threeweek break and will resume on July 26 for three rounds before the finals. Burnside will not want to let go of the shield when they face Christ’s at 5.45pm at the Christchurch Football Centre, where all league games are being played this year. Christchurch Boys’ High will take on Lincoln at 4pm, St Bede’s will play Shirley at 5.45pm, St Andrew’s will try to stay top of the table when they face St Thomas at 7.30pm and Papanui will resume their season against Riccarton at 7.30pm.

Feet First, the long-established podiatry clinic in Upper Riccarton, now has a much more efficient and effective means of dealing with the problem of fungal nails, thanks to a new machine they recently obtained from Britain, where it was designed and trialled. Clearanail is a procedure where the Podiatrists use a machine to make tiny holes in the nail without affecting the nail bed – a completely pain-free procedure that then allows the topical application of antifungal solution to directly reach the problem area. Fungal nails may cause the toenail to thicken, which consequently can make shoes feel uncomfortable. Anyone who believes they have a fungal infection of the nails is invited to make an appointment for a consultation with Feet First so one of the qualified Podiatrists can assess if that is the case, and if so, will recommend the Clearanail procedure. This involves the initial treatment, and three follow-up appointments at monthly intervals to check progress. “Fungal nail infections won’t disappear immediately,” clinic director Charlotte Russell says, “so people need to commit to the process, which can take up to four months as the nail grows.” She says now is an ideal time to start fungal nail treatment with Clearanail, so nails will be looking healthy again when the warm, sandal-wearing weather arrives. Feet First has an introductory offer on Clearanail until the end of July. Call them on 348-7910 for details.
