End to odour monitoring angers residents Rest home smell remains BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Residents are angry Environment Canterbury has stopped monitoring a smell coming from a Cashmere retirement village. Chemical-like odours wafting from Rose St’s Cashmere View Retirement Village kitchen and laundry have dogged residents for the past three years. But now ECan says it is no longer monitoring the site, angering residents who say the stink, though lessened, still remains. An abatement notice was served by ECan in October last year ordering that “offensive odour discharges� from the site cease by November 7. Retirement village owner, Bupa, installed a new kitchen filter and laundry wash side filters in May and made alterations to the kitchen and laundry to try and combat the problem.


ECan resource management act monitoring and compliance regional manager Marty Mortiaux said resources had been assigned to “more serious issues�. He said ECan was satisfied the retirement village now complies with the permitted activity regional rule. “ECan has undertaken a very thorough investigation into this matter and has been unable to substantiate discharges of odour that are of an offensive or objectionable nature that required further enforcement action.� Lower Cashmere Residents’ Association member Louise Ayling said residents had no idea ECan had stopped monitoring the retirement village. “ECan aren’t even keeping us in the loop on the very matter that has affected us for three years.�

Fear for cyclists, pedestrians as Addington street gets busier BRIDGET RUTHERFORD Addington residents are worried an increase in traffic and speed on a residential street is putting cyclists and pedestrians in danger. Since more businesses had moved into the area, the volume of vehicles using Ward St had increased, and so had the speed they travel. The Addington Residents’ Association voiced their concerns to the SpreydonHeathcote Community Board about the street, which runs between Selwyn St and Church Square. The board has asked the city council to look into whether something could be done to make the street safer. Residents’ association chairwoman Sarah Pullman said the issue was brought up at a recent meeting. “Quite a number of Addington residents were there, and about half a dozen were concerned,” she said. “It’s the high volume of traffic coming through Ward


PARKING RESTRICTIONS Addington residents have until Friday to have their say on a proposal to install no stopping restrictions on part of York Tong Pl. The restrictions would make it easier for rubbish trucks to get access to the end of the street, which is currently causing safety issues. They would be installed on the bend at the end of the street. Residents can have their say on the city council website. Consultation will close at 5pm. RUBBISH, BARK ON FIRE Sockburn firefighters were called to a residential address in Halswell last week where a pile of rubbish was on fire. Fire communications shift manager Riwai Grace said smoke was coming from the backyard of a Halswell Rd property and the fire service was called out at about 11am on Wednesday. He said the fire took about 10min to put out. Firefighters from Christchurch Central were also called to Charles St, Waltham, at 1.14pm on Wednesday. A pile of bark was smouldering in Charleston Reserve. It took about 15min to extinguish.

Graffiti: Art or vandalism? Hillmorton High School principal Ann Brokenshire Being a school principal one is expected to maintain a reasonably calm demeanour so as to manage the many conflicting demands facing one on a daily basis when working in a space occupied by 700 teenagers. It pays to remain calm. But, when travelling to or from work across our city each day, I become enraged at the wanton destruction of our bus shelters and only slightly less angry when I see windows etched. Tagging, that practice something ‘akin to a dog marking its territory’ is, in my opinion, unnecessary vandalism. Fortunately most of our students have a well-developed sense of belonging and pride in our school which remains almost entirely free of such tagging or vandalism. Having stated my anger at

SOAP BOX seeing unnecessary vandalism in our public spaces, I must say that I have thoroughly enjoyed much of the graffiti or street art which can be seen throughout our city over recent years. As buildings came down, much street art went up. Some is satirical, and some makes political or social commentary. Some is just interesting, a positive,

creative response amidst the wastelands. My favourite is definitely the giant mural of a ballet dancer which adorns the back of the Isaac Theatre Royal. This ‘graffiti’ exists in our public spaces and so affects us all. Many find tagging or graffiti abhorrent as it attempts to own our public spaces. Many of us though, have come to admire what we call graffiti art or street art. I’m now pondering if advertising vandalism too? Like tagging and some graffiti, this too is an ‘uncensored use of our public spaces for the purpose of selling stuff’. (Liam Miller, The University of Queensland philosophy of play researcher).

All-out effort in duckling rescue

End to odour monitoring angers residents


A crow bar, a butterfly net, three concerned residents, two arborists and a kombi van driver came together to pull off a stunning rescue in Beckenham. Birdwood Ave resident Jacqui Rogers was driving home on October 16 when she saw a pair of paradise ducks standing by a drain on the corner of Birdwood Ave and Sandwich Rd. She pulled over to see what they were looking at and noticed one duckling sitting in the gutter, and heard tweeting. As she looked down the drain she saw three more. “I thought oh no! The parents weren’t going to leave them,” she said. She then raced home and phoned the SPCA, the city council and bird rescue to ask if there was some way they could help – but to no avail. So she turned to a community Facebook page with a plea

HAPPY: The family of paradise ducks waddle off after being rescued in Beckenham.

for help. Nearby resident Stephen McDaid responded to the call and went to the scene with a crow bar, while his son brought a butterfly net. By this stage the fourth duckling had also managed to get itself stuck in the drain. They were coming up with a rescue plan when they caught the attention of two aborists working nearby, who then came to help. They managed to lift the grate off the drain when a man driving past in a kombi van

stopped to lend a hand. Team work prevailed and the group managed to scoop all four ducklings out and onto the safety of the footpath. “Then they just strolled off,” Ms Rogers said. She said the reaction from the Beckenham community on her Facebook post was amazing. “It made my day, I couldn’t have left them there.” Three days later Woolston firefighters (right) spent about two hours pulling seven ducklings to safety from a wastewater system in Dalziel Pl.

The ducklings had been spotted by nearby movers falling into the system while following their mother across the road. They managed to get seven of the nine ducklings out while the last two proved elusive. Rescuers tried Weetbix and crackers to lure them but were unsuccessful. Fire station officer Nik Brown said it was difficult to prevent this sort of thing happening. He said they attended every call-out but would prioritise human life above jobs like these.

CASHED SETTLED by EQC or insurance

• From page 1 This includes not being invited to a meeting regarding the problem in September, she said. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board had requested a meeting with Bupa and ECan about the ongoing issues. The meeting was held – but without the residents’ knowledge. Councillor Phil Clearwater represented the community board at the meeting at ECan offices in Burnside. “We would have liked to have been included in the meeting, it was about an issue that only affects us,” Ms Ayling said. “It’s very frustrating after so much hard work.” Mr Mortiaux said a further meeting was planned to involve the wider group of residents and community board representatives. “This meeting may be held on site at the Cashmere View Rest Home so the community can observe the measures Bupa have taken to address any odour issues.” Bupa head of communications Lisa Chambers said the new systems appeared to be working well. “We need to finish the last 10 per cent of this journey,” Ms Ayling said.

boy and male kapa haka leader Waiariki Paraone was named the best male leader. Linwood kapa haka tutor Manu Paringatai said the group’s performance was a tribute to Maori soldiers who went away to fight in World War 1. She said the students had been practising for about two terms leading up to the competition. “They worked really hard, especially through the holidays.” The group stayed at the school for three days over the holidays to prepare, she said. The national competition will be held at Napier’s Pettigrew Arena in July, with groups from all over the country competing. Ms Paringatai said 10 year 13 members of the group would be leaving at the end of the year and new members would need to be recruited.


LEARNING: Miyuki Kitamura and Paris Snelleksz test their electronic engineering skills.

Getting a feel for electronic engineering Hillmorton High School students were given the opportunity to test their electronic engineering skills. Sixteen students worked with four electronics engineers for a day, organised by Catherine Smith of Futureintech. The students learnt how to programme microchips to make them perform tasks such as measuring the temperature, and displaying the measurement on an LCD display. They learnt the basics about how to programme the electronic circuit boards to make them carry out the basic functions used every day in homes, jobs and schools. Student Dylan Knights said

people thought it was hard to do, but it was not. “It’s a lot easier than I thought,” student Dawson Berry said. “It was good to be able to actually see what happens after you have programmed the electronics,” student Paris Snelleksz said. Hillmorton has started a new robotics and electronics club this term so students can solve real-world problems using the latest technology. This club is part of the existing coders’ club where students get to use 3D game engine technology to develop virtual reality spaces and 3D games.

Linwood College’s kapa haka group is off to nationals. The group of 25 performed at the Waitaha Secondary Schools Regional Kapa Haka Championships on October 17 at Burnside High School. It came second overall to qualify for the national competition in Hawke’s Bay next year. Students from Spreydon’s Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o te Whanau Tahi were part of a combined group that won the competition. Nine groups, made up of students from 14 schools performed at the regional competition. It was made up of six sections, entrance, traditional chant, poi, action song, haka and an exit song, which counted towards the overall result. Linwood came first in the poi and exit song, second in the entrance, action song and haka, and third in the traditional WELL DONE: The Linwood College kapa haka chant. group came second at the secondary schools Linwood head regional competition recently.

New direction for popular music store The long-established Christchurch music store, Begg’s Music, is heading in an exciting new direction. As from the end of October, the store will be doing business from its new premises in Sydenham – operating as an outlet store. “The main reason for the move is that we need more space,” says Grant Bargrove, who has owned and run the popular music store for almost 30 years. One of the city’s oldest and most respected businesses, Begg’s dates back to the 1800s and since then has been providing instruments and other musical requirements for generations of keen musicians. The store moved into South City four years ago, after the earthquakes severely damaged the Colombo Street building it had occupied for the previous 25 years. The move to the new, larger premises this month allowing the change to the outlet concept, will mean much cheaper prices for customers, says Grant. Almost all the stock will be directly imported by Begg’s Music and displayed in an industrial environment, which will see examples of the various instruments on display and the bulk of the stock boxed up ready for customers to pick up and take home. With the larger premises providing more storage space, Begg’s Music will be getting back into pianos, says Grant. “We will be bringing them in directly by the container load. The interest in pianos has reignited, and we will have the space to showcase them, plus the building will be temperature controlled for the pianos.” Begg’s Music is also a supplier of Fender guitars, and will have an extensive range at the new outlet store, which also includes a fully equipped workshop. And with recording and live sound a growth area of the music industry, amplifiers are another key product for Begg’s Music, Grant says.

“We also hope to have live music on the premises from time to time.” Begg’s Music is very much a family concern, with Grant’s wife Cynthia responsible for the accounts and administration, and their three children, aged 12 to 19, and Grant’s parents all involved. Cynthia’s property management business also has its office in the new location. Begg’s Music Outlet Store is located at 53 Brisbane Street, on the corner of Brisbane and Wordsworth streets, with plenty of off-street parking. The South City store will close on October 18 and the new outlet store will open on October 31, and will operate from Tuesday to Saturday.

That work led it to be nominated for the school award at this year’s event, which was won by Melbourne Girls’ College. Cashmere has been nominated for next year’s award for a revised version of the previous project. The revised version includes installing solar panels at the school to improve on its current savings. The council also hopes to buy a small wind turbine and Piezo Electric tiles to be used for demonstrations in classes. Piezo Electric tiles work by transferring kinetic energy, from stepping on them, into light for hallways. The plans, however, are dependent on winning the prize. Previous winners of categories at the Zayed Future Energy Prize have been Al Gore and Panasonic.

Cashmere High School has been nominated for an international sustainability award for the second year running. The school’s sustainability council is up for the Oceania school award at the Zayed Future Energy Prize. The prize is run annually in Abu Dhabi as part of the United Arab Emirates’ sustainability week. The winners will be announced in January. It recognises individuals, organisations, and schools who have contributed to renewable energy and sustainability. Cashmere’s sustainability council’s work has helped the school cut its electricity usage by nearly one third since it formed.

St Anne’s to reopen after earthquake repairs St Anne’s Catholic Church is one of several Catholic churches to reopen this year after earthquake repairs. The Woolston church has been closed since February 2011 while undergoing earthquake repairs and strengthening, and was scheduled to reopen on Saturday. The temporary works focused

on strengthening of the rear wall, narthex and improving connections between the roof and main structure. The original tower was removed after the earthquakes for safety and the area beneath has been made good with the placement of the cross where the tower previously stood. St Peter’s, Beckenham, is

planned to be opened to celebrate the Feast of Christ the King on November 21 while St Matthew’s, Bryndwr, could be open by early December. A contract has just been let to replace two-thirds of the roof and add reinforcement around the walls to Our Lady of Assumption, Hoon Hay. It is expected to be open for Christmas.

Rolex and Vintage Watches Wanted

re 1950’s mechanical watches are needed urgently by the buyers from John Bertrand (Collectables) Ltd, visiting Christchurch and Canterbury this coming week. Collectors at this stage want brands such as Rolex, Omega, Patek Philippe, Vacheron & Constantin just to mention some. These brands can command large prices depending on the condition, what they are made of etc. “Many of the other brands are only required for parts. In any event we will buy any mechanical watch, even if its only a few dollars for parts,” said Tony Grant, buyer for the company. Battery operated watches are not needed. “If you are unsure just bring any watches to us at the venues and have them appraised,” he said.

Some Big Dollars in Early Banknotes

banknote from a New Zealand trading bank dated 1932 or before. Denominations of five pounds and higher would be worth from $700. Any banknote dated prior to 1900 would be worth at least $1000,” said Mr Grant. Also purchased are any Reserve Bank of New Zealand pre-decimal issues, especially 50 Pound notes. All overseas banknotes prior to the 1950’s are also wanted.



Big Demand for Military Medals

urrently, throughout the world there is a big demand by collectors for Military Medals. These cover all wars right through from the New Zealand Land Wars and the Boer War, to the First and Second World Wars and the later Korea and Vietnam conflicts. New Zealand Servicemen and Women first served overseas in the Boer War in South Africa around 1900 and the Military Medals awarded for this service are needed by the buyers, as are any other Medals from early New Zealand and the New Zealand Wars. General service medals from both the First and Second World Wars will also be purchased, but as can be imagined these were awarded in fairly large numbers. “If a group of medals has any special award for bravery such as the Military Medal, Military or Flying Cross or other medals for Distinguished Conduct or Meritorious Service, these can add great value to a group,” stated Mr Tony Grant, buyer for John Bertrand (Collectables) Ltd. “Many families have old medals, some dating back to early Imperial days, that they are not sure what to do with. We will be happy to look at any Military Medals whatsoever, just bring them in to venues,” he said.

Old Coins Can Toss Up a Rarity


heck those drawers and cupboards, you may have a rarity lurking amongst your coins. This advice from Tony Grant, buyer for John Bertrand (Collectables) Ltd. “We want to see any old foreign coin accumulations put together before 1950. We will be quite happy to go through your coins on the spot and give you an idea of what we can pay. You just never know what can turn up!

Young sports stars in line for awards The finalists for this year’s Zonta Sports Awards have been named, including six from the southern suburbs. Two Hillmorton High School students are up for awards. Celyn Edwards is a finalist in the award for the most outstanding achievement by a young sportsman with a disability for swimming. In May, Edwards won the Overall Swimming Male and jointly won the Overall Athlete at the Halberg Junior Disability Games in Cambridge. Papa Mutu will go for the best allround young sportsman who has achieved in more than one sporting code. He was named in the under-17 South Island Scorpions rugby league squad in July and represented New Zealand in the under-18 softball development team earlier in the year. Two teams and two individuals from Cashmere High School are in the mix. Rhythmic gymnast Maggie Takami was named among the finalists for the most

outstanding individual achievement by a young sportswoman specialising in one sport. She won the International section at the New Zealand Secondary Schools Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships in August. Fellow Cashmere student Reece Traub is up for the same award in the sportsman section for judo. Traub was part of the New Zealand Judo team which competed at the Oceania Championships in April. Cashmere’s girls’ futsal team will go for the most outstanding girls team, while the boys cross-country team is up for the boys section. The annual Zonta Sports Awards, initiated by the Zonta Club of Christchurch South in 1990, celebrate the sporting achievements of talented young Cantabrians. The winners will be announced at a special ceremony on Thursday at the Hornby Working Men’s Club.

ould this be the best golf event ever brought to Christchurch? The New Zealand Cup & Show Week Golf Event is a 36-hole tournament open to all golfers from around Christchurch and the rest of New Zealand. This event aims to ‘break the traditional shackles’ of golf club tournaments in New Zealand with an innovative event that engages players, sponsors and golf stakeholders.

The official NZ Cup & Show Week event will be played over two days at the stunning Pegasus Golf & Sports Club and Clearwater Golf Clubs. Whilst this is a fantastic golf event, filled with interactive golf competitions and unique scoring formats, the occasion is as much about the vibrancy of Christchurch during NZ Cup & Show Week and a exceptional experience for those that enter the event. Premium hospitality and customer experience is at the core of this event and your entry fee includes: Two days green fees and complimentary cart hire; one day at Pegasus Golf Club & one day at Clearwater Golf Club played over the 12th & 13th November. At each golf course breakfast will be served both days on arrival, followed by shot gun starts each day. Lunch will be served on course followed by a two hour hospitality package at the completion of each days play. On the evening of Friday 13th players and their partners are invited to Rydges Latimer Square for an evening of entertainment, with presentations from Puma Cobra Golf and Taylor Made Golf and other key stake holders. The evening will also stage the major prize

Business owner Brett Heaney says that, “The friendly, professional managers and staff in all our three stores help customers

Beautiful smiles

this Christmas season Denture wearers know how important it is to have confidence in the dental technicians who make and fit your dentures. At Dentures Plus on Innes Road, the team are highly qualified and experienced specialists who work to the highest calibre.


hey are experts in custom-making dentures and repairs to give their clients a comfortable and natural fit. As well as making full and partial dentures, they will reline existing dentures once they have had chance to settle after the first few months, to give them back their initial great fit so that wearers are again able to smile and eat with assurance. Their expertise also extends to providing dentures that attach to implants, making sure that the whole look is natural and consistent. Dentures Plus is owned by Ryan Carlton, a clinical dental technician who specialises in treating patients directly, and his partner, German-trained Marion Schoenleben, who is a qualified dental technician skilled in the design and manufacture of dentures. The rest of the friendly team comprises practice manager Paulette Dench, who will book your appointments for you and welcome you as you arrive; Nicole Yee, a clinical dental technician whose focus

is on using her technical skills to benefit her patients; and Paula Brickman, who brings years of experience and skills to denture manufacturing. Although many of their clients are referred by their dentists, this isn’t necessary as Dentures Plus welcomes new patients and they can liaise with you and your dentist, or recommend a dentist if you require an extraction. They will make the dentures before an extraction to

help with the healing process. If you want to enjoy the festivities this summer and have a smile to remember in your Christmas and holiday photographs, Ryan and the team recommends you make an appoint with them as soon as possible. “It can take some time for a set of dentures to settle in,” he explains. Denture Plus’ professional and patientcentred approach means they will support you at every stage, and have

you with a natural-looking smile and eating with confidence in time for the Christmas celebrations. To keep your dentures at their best for as long as possible, Dentures Plus also offers a range of after-care products including denture cleaners, brushes and baths. For beautiful teeth and a natural smile, find them at 396 Innes Rd, or telephone (03) 385 5517 for a free noobligation consultation.

It’s celebration time at

Winnie Bagoes In 1995 a little gourmet pizza bar opened its doors for the first time in Christchurch and quickly became a local institution.


hat means the Winnie Bagoes brand has reached the ripe old age of 20 and, two decades on, it is still carefully crafting some of the same pizzas that locals simply can’t let go of, like the Florentina, Kiwi Craving, Grand Chicago and Vegetali. But the menu has changed with the times and now includes a tempting range of starters, a pizza list to suit anyone’s palate, pasta, salad and, of course, the legendary dessert pizzas. Now in its eighth year at Ferrymead, it’s time to celebrate at the local Winnie Bagoes. They have a huge celebration week kicking off on October 26, where they are taking their food prices back to 1995 and the original Winnies Menu. They have also created a ‘20 years of Winnies Memories’ Facebook page where you can share your stories, photos and good times at Winnies. A year’s supply of free pizza is up for grabs for the best photo or story, so jump on and share the Winnies love. Party your way through the Christmas season at Winnie Bagoes Ferrymead – they have a space for your group. The Christmas set menus are priced at $25 and $30 per person and offer fantastic value for money for groups of 15 or more. Call now on 376 4900 to book in your Christmas party at the place where you know the people already love the food. At Winnie’s Ferrymead, [Edition datE]everyone is

welcome. With a kids’ menu sure to please the fussiest of eaters, Winnie’s offers a relaxed, fun family dining experience. Winnie’s Kids Pizza School is the place where messy play meets munch time.
