$300k for ‘chill-out’ area BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

About $300,000 of ratepayers’ money has been spent buying the former site of the Churchills Tavern for a Sydenham “chillout� area. The city council bought the property at 441 Colombo St in March for $312,000 as part of the Sydenham Master Plan. City councillor Tim Scandrett (inset) said the city council

INSIDE:

bought the site to provide a “chill-out� area for Sydenham. Churchills Tavern was demolished in June 2011 due to earthquake damage. For eight months since the city council purchased it, the bare gravel section has sat empty, with only a lone sculpture by Llew Summers, that has since been removed. There are plans to put another piece of art on the section.

HAVE YOUR SAY What do you think of the city council spending $312,000 on the site to be turned into a community space? Email bridget.rutherford@ starmedia.kiwi But there may finally be action on the horizon. This month, the city council said it would begin consultation

on what the Sydenham Quarter group and locals on what they would like to go there. City council urban design and regeneration unit manager Carolyn Ingles said the site was considered a good location with it facing north and being sheltered from the easterly. A boutique retail and eatery complex is going in on the neighbouring Colombo St

property and will open out onto the site. Owner Samir Govind said he had been in discussions with the city council on their plans for the site, and they both wanted it to be turned into a green space. Sydenham Quarter secretary Lorraine Thompson said it would be a nice central space for people to enjoy. “We need a place like that.�

Theatre group soon to move back to historic malthouse BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Earthquake repairs to one of the country’s oldest surviving malthouses are nearing completion. The Malthouse in Beckenham, is home to the Canterbury Children’s Theatre Group, and Malthouse Costumes. It has been undergoing earthquake repairs since October last year, but builders hope to be finished by the end of the month. The Colombo St building sustained damage in the earthquakes, but thanks to strengthening about a year before the September 2010 quake, the damage was repairable. But the toilet and laundry block, which was added on in the 1970s, were lost. Builders are now completing the landscaping and driveway. The Malthouse was built in 1867 to process barley for the

north side has been built with new toilets, a laundry and a kitchen. All of the concrete floors have been re-poured and the walls strengthened, as well as a new wall under the utility block. The new wall has been reconstructed from the existing masonry. The inside has been painted, new carpet installed, has new dressing rooms as well as updated fire alarms, new insulation and heat pumps. The children’s theatre group hopes to hold a grand reopening on January 31, where it begin its performances of Aladdin. The group usually does three shows a year, so it had been a long time between performances, Ms Rivers said. In spite of the repairs, Malthouse Costumes has been able to remain in the building, and moved around where the work has been carried out.

BICYCLE CRASHES Two people were taken to hospital after bicycle-related incidents in the southern suburbs on Tuesday. St John was called to Fairview St, Somerfield, at 3.37pm where a pedestrian was hit by a bicycle. A woman in her 70s suffered minor injuries. At 5.17pm a man in his 50s was taken to hospital with serious injuries after being knocked off his bicycle by a truck in Woolston. St John sent an ambulance and rapid response to the scene at the intersection of Garlands Rd and Maunsell St. DESIGN STAGE FOR FACILITY Plans for the new St Martins Community Facility on the corner of Wilsons Rd and Wades Ave, are moving into the detailed design stage. The new facility will be built on the site of the former St Martins Public Library and will have the ability to host the voluntary library, with additional booking space. Expressions of interest for contractors to build the facility has been done with 14 replies. They are yet to be short-listed. When the design is complete it will have to go for resource consent. CALL-OUT TO POWER LINES Firefighters were called to Waltham at 12.28am on Tuesday when power lines were arching at the substation on Wilsons Rd. Fire crews from Addington and Christchurch Central attended and power authorities were there isolating the power. Firefighters were also called to Centaurus Rd, Huntsbury at about 2am on Wednesday where a rubbish bin was on fire. Fire communications shift manager Brent Dunn said the fire was being treated as suspicious.

Councillors respond to James Adams City councillors Phil Clearwater and Tim Scandrett respond to Hillmorton High School year 13 student James Adams’ column last week where he criticised the city council’s progress of the rebuild in the suburbs Councillor Phil Clearwater I understand James’ concern and the city council does need to focus on redeveloping facilities for our communities, not just the central city, but he is not entirely correct. The city council has had a huge focus on and investment in fixing broken streets, piped water, stormwater and sewer pipes in the Spreydon-Heathcote ward and in suburbs across the city. This is hidden infrastructure which the city council has been determined to fix and we’re well under way to completing the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team projects. Community facilities such as the new Rowley house which opens on Monday (today), the redevelopment of Manuka Cottage in Addington,

and the rebuild of the Barrington playground are local projects the community board and council have supported. We are just completing the community consultation on the Little River Cycleway which will run through Addington and Hillmorton. Also Cracroft Old Stone House will reopen next year after extensive repairs. The city council and the community board are achieving a lot. We certainly still have a long way to go yet to rebuild Christchurch and we must continue to strengthen our communities. Councillor Tim Scandrett It is wonderful to have young people who are so committed to their communities. As I commented in Soap Box recently it is amazing what communities

can achieve when they work together for a common goal. I would like to provide reassurance that the city council is very focussed on working with communities to help them achieve their goals. In consultation with communities, the city council is repairing local facilities. The Cracroft Old Stone House repair plans are progressing. The Sign of Takahe and Kiwi will re-open next year. The Waltham pool will be open for a full summer this year. I have been working to help groups like Rowley house to help them achieve the facilities they need. We are rebuilding the St Martins Voluntary Library in conjunction with the groups

SOAP BOX

Two post boxes at 82 Barrington St and 107 Birdwood Ave, are likely be removed next month because they are not used enough.

who have an interest in the facility. I am also working with the Huntsbury community to design a green space around their reservoirs. We are, I know very much still in the repair and rebuild stage in many parts of Christchurch as residents will notice with all the traffic disruption due to roading repairs. We are working hard and together to achieve common goals. As James Adams said, it is up to all of us to rebuild the city we want.

Cemetery’s swampy problem solved BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Part of Sydenham Cemetery became overgrown because it was too wet to mow. Damaged pipes meant an eastern section of the cemetery, which is in Somerfield, had been flooding. It had not been mowed since the second week of October. After inquiries to the city council by the Southern View, city council staff and contractor staff from Delta Utility Services met at the site to agree on a mowing solution. It was decided the mowing contractors would line-trim the wet areas to keep them maintained while the pipes are repaired and the ground dries, city council parks unit manager Andrew Rutledge said. On November 7, it appeared contractors had addressed the issue. The cemetery is one of the oldest in the city, and contains the official war graves of 41 men who served during World War One and died before September 1, 1921.

OVERGROWN: Part of the Sydenham Cemetery, in Somerfield, became overgrown because the ground was too wet for contractors to mow the grass.

Mr Rutledge said the cause of the problem appeared to be the damaged pipes, which meant the ground was too wet to mow. “Once the area dries, we will bring it back to its usual grassed standard and continue to maintain it.” Mr Rutledge said the lawns were meant to be mowed once a week at this time of the year, and

5

the wet area was the only section that had not been mowed weekly. Contractors carry out ordinary maintenance at the cemetery, which was opened in 1896, including mowing, gardening, and litter collection. “This issue relates specifically to the wet area, with the source of the problem (damaged water pipes) now identified,” he said.

CHURCH REOPENS Beckenham’s St Peter’s Church will reopen to the parish on Saturday. The church was damaged in the earthquakes and has been using the parish centre next door. The church has now been strengthened and is ready to reopen. St Peter’s, Beckenham, and Sacred Heart, Addington, amalgamated in April. The church will be officially rededicated at 5pm on Saturday with a vigil mass followed by a shared supper and celebration in the Parish Centre afterwards. Subsequent Saturdays, vigil Mass will be at 6.30pm and Sunday morning mass at 9.30am.

ROAD STILL ONE LANE Part of Dyers Pass Rd continues to have one lane closed while Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team carries out work on two retaining walls. The repairs will take about 10 weeks to complete. Twoway traffic will be maintained with temporary traffic signals. The first retaining wall to be repaired is on the city-side of Dyers Pass Rd near Victoria Park Rd, while work on a second wall south of the Sign of the Kiwi on the Governors

FLOOD REMEDIATION A flood remediation scheme for Woolston’s Bells Creek will proceed to the detailed design stage. The city council made the decision to proceed at its meeting on Thursday. The scheme aims to reduce the frequency and severity of flooding in a 50-year rainfall event and benefit properties at risk of above floor flooding. City council staff will now start work on refining the scheme’s design. The estimated cost for the Bells Creek stage one work is $9 million.

POST BOXES TO GO New Zealand Post is planning on removing two post boxes from Beckenham and Barrington. A box at 107 Birdwood Ave, and another at 82 Barrington St will be removed on December 7. NZ Post operations support leader, Christchurch, Ross Newton said the boxes would be removed because they had low customer use. “Items posted in the boxes are counted over a four-week period. If on any given day over the four weeks the amount of letters exceeds 30, then the box will not be removed. It is not cost effective to retain boxes that do not meet this threshold.” He said public feedback would be taken into account.

Producer of buskers festival the The SCIRT World Buskers Festival does not start until January 14, but producer Tim Bain is already busy sourcing unusual props and booking show-stopping entertainers. He chats to Fraser Walker-Pearce Thanks for chatting with me Tim, right now you’re super busy with setting up the buskers festival for next year. How’s that going? We launched the project this week just gone. So we’re definitely not on the home straight, but we are getting the stages ready, which is great. But then you have to worry about the performers’ visas, flights, production requirements and everything else. The festival goes from January 14-24. Realistically though, you have to have it all done before Christmas time because no one’s in town around that time. There are four of us setting up the entire festival, which is pretty

insane now that I’m saying it out loud. Considering we get about 500 applicants a year from performers, from musicians to buskers to everything that’s pretty cool. It’s got a great reputation, and the cool thing about this year is that we have 13 countries being represented, which is the most ever. What does the associate artistic director for the buskers festival mean? We actually decided to change my title to producer after we had a big discussion, it reflects what I’m doing a bit better. So basically my job is to liaise with all the performers, get all the flights, marketing, visas, everything sorted. I also have to source 500 plastic ponchos, more than 100-litres of kerosene, 40 juggling balls, 50 something cardboard boxes, 14 VCRs, 10 TVs, a kitchen sink, more than 5000 cable ties and some other random props for certain artists. Along with that,

I make sure they get here safely, and that they’ve got accommodation, well looked after and everything else. Just everything really! What performances are you most looking forward to in next year’s festival? I’m most looking forward to Yana Alana, who is a cabaret/ one-woman show. And also Buskers Burlesque which is a headline show for the festival. Who is your all-time favourite burlesque performer? It’s got to be Perle Noire. I bet there are a few stories of your time working with Mark Hadlow for MAMIL (Middle-Aged Man In Lycra? One thing that stands out during MAMIL, which is just Mark on stage, was when something would go quite wrong like a wrong prop or something, the show would not necessarily break down . . . but it sure got close a few times! A few times

he got the giggles before he went on stage, which made me really concerned. He’d have to walk on stage and say to himself: ‘Get it together.’ I’m also lucky to have worked with the top 10 burlesque dancers in the world. To have worked with them and to create something in the festival is pretty amazing. What most people don’t realise is that burlesque performances don’t come prearranged, they are literally made up the day before the performance. You have 24 hours to create an entire show, which can be bedlam, but come the next day, it always goes off, it just explodes. And you’ve been involved with Camp America before, too? Tell me about that. Yes, I went to the camp in the United States nine times. I live in Sydenham now, but when I first did Camp America I lived in Riccarton, and it’s a really long way to America. I started out being a counsellor for the kids on the camp, and by the end of it I was running all the events and doing things like that.

dream job to have BUSY MAN: Tim Bain is the producer of the 2016 World Buskers Festival, to be held around the city.

It’s pretty awesome really because you get to do stuff that you wouldn’t normally get the chance to do. I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t jump at the chance to get paid to ride a jet ski with kids. Agreed! Where do you sign up? No, I’m joking. What would be the best part of those camps? A lot of people would say a specific event with the kids, but for me it’s the connections that I made

with the other counsellors. I still talk to people from my first camp, so that’s really awesome. Now I have connections all around the world. When you live and work with someone for eight weeks straight you really grow tight with them. When you were doing drama studies yourself, did you ever get on stage and freeze, or ruin your lines or something like that? No, I don’t think so. The environment when I was

7

at Riccarton High was so supportive. I remember one time we had to perform a Greek play where in the final scene everyone is either dead or dying, and my character had a massive monologue to the audience and at the end of it there was silence. And I looked out into the audience and saw my dean, who covered her face and just bawled. It was great! Is this your dream job? It is absolutely my dream job.

WEST SPREYDON SENIOR CITIZEN CLUB The club used to be based at Centennial Hall, but had to relocate after the earthquakes. It now holds coffee mornings on the first Tuesday of each month at the Baptist Church Hall, Lyttelton St at 10.30am. The club will take a break over Christmas, and the next coffee morning will be held on the first Tuesday of February. It will, however, hold a meeting at Bills Bar and Bistro, Halswell Rd, on December 1 for members. The club is a good place to make friends, and on average has about 15 members come along to each meeting. Anyone is welcome to join, which is free, however, members pay for their own food and drink at the meetings. Those interested in joining, or wanting more information can phone Joane Cowles on 338 4784. CHRISTCHURCH OLYMPIC TAE KWON DO Through the practice of tae kwon do, the aim of this club is to improve students’ physical well-being, fitness and strength, their self-confidence and discipline. It can provide them with the skills needed to defend themselves and succeed in life. The club has a group of very experienced black belts. Classes are taken by black belts or instructors with world-recognised qualifications.

The training hall or “Dojang”, which translates as “the place of the way” has an important role in traditional martial arts training. The club is family oriented and there is a good male and female representation in the club. Located on the corner of Mathers and Tankerville Rds. For more information, visit www. dojos.nz/ChristchurchOlympic GARDEN CITY ROTARY CLUB The club meets every Tuesday morning at Spectators, Addington Raceway, for a breakfast meeting beginning at 7am. Perfect for those who are often busy in the evenings or need a fixed timetable to work to, as meetings generally finish around 8.20am. The club welcomes both men and women from all walks of life. If you’re community spirited, have a desire to give something back and like the idea of being amongst positive-thinking, hard-working and funloving people then Garden City Rotary could be just right for you. Its next community event will be held at Westlake Reserve, Halswell on Sunday (November 22) at 9.30am. This is a joint international project with its sister club from Sakai South East, Japan. A flowering cherry tree lined walk, native plantings, paths and a commemorative pergola are just some of the things the club will be sprucing up from a project that began more than 15 years ago.

Let us entertain you ENERGETIC: Thorrington School’s jump jam group received an award for excellence in sportsmanship at the Strictly Jump Jam competition on November 6. The national competition was held at St Margaret’s College. The team placed in the top 20 in their category in the country as well as receiving the sportsmanship award.

ON SHOW: Forty St Martins School pupils recently performed two 30 min performances for local pre-school children. The show included two dances and a piece using nursery rhymes. About 65 children and teachers from local pre-schools, including Poppies Preschool, were in the audience. “We are so proud of our students. They worked so hard to make this a great performance for our little friends at our local pre-schools. They were so excited to be able to perform publicly,” head of performing arts Trudy-Anne Rowe said.

WORKING TOGETHER: Our Lady of the Assumption School, 11 years girls relay runners up (from left) Amalie Davison, Gabby Dorward, Claudia Hooker, Molly Maslen.

TEAMWORK: Spreydon School athletics team with their ribbons.

Young athletes show off their fitness The South West Zone athletics carnival saw almost 450 primary school pupils represent their schools. The competition was held at Hilmorton High School on

November 6. Oaklands School and Cashmere Primary School were the big winners. Cashmere made it a double with wins in both the boys and

girls 1200m race, with Mac Scott and Maddie Jones taking home gold. West Spreydon School pupil Esther Pratten won both the 11 years girls high jump and long

jump events. The top three finishers in each event gained automatic selection to the primary schools athletics championship to be held in Ashburton on December 2.

Unnecessary spike in fire calls early November (double happies), sky rockets and jumping jacks were available and the on sale period was as long as the retailer wanted. In those times it was not uncommon to have several building fires burning at the one time. It was not uncommon for people to lose fingers, kids to

BY MARK THOMAS – FIRE RISK MANAGEMENT OFFICER

Guy Fawkes night came and went last week without major incident. I’m old enough to remember when exploding fireworks

lose an eye. We do appear to have more concern for people’s safety these days. Thankfully, the rockets and bangers have been banned. But there is still the unnecessary spike in fire calls early each November. The incidents are gener-

ally not as numerous or as serious. But if such an incident coincided with someone you love being trapped in a burning house, or in a crashed car or an industrial accident I’m picking you would rather the nearest fire truck was not unavailable because the crew were cleaning

up the result of some idiot being reckless with fireworks. We had another incident this week where a young child locked themselves in a car by hitting the lock and having the central locking do its thing. Something else in the endless list of things parents need to be aware of.

Fat Freeze machine gets results! The cryolipolysis (Fat Freeze) machine is so effective – you will be amazed by the results.

H

ow does the treatment work? With our treatment, we use a specially designed vacuum to gently draw up the skin area; the automated cooling handles then starts the treatment, which can be programmable, including treatment time. The great thing about this treatment, apart from that it’s simple and really effective, is that it’s designed to be a ‘lunchtime job’, where clients can return to normal activities right afterwards without discomfort and the only tell-tale signs being a flushed skin appearance (on the treated area) for a few hours.

QA

WOW!

50% off first treatment

Research from the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery suggests a loss of 20 to 40 per cent for each treatment (where 20 per cent is the average). After a two-month wait, when you are ready for the next treatment, you can look forward to another 20 per cent and even more being lost. Sometimes one treatment is enough. The technology of using cold to decompose fat cells was pioneered by the president of the Pennsylvania University School of Medicine in America and has since gained FDA approval as well as European CE. Unlike other slimming technologies out there, this one is designed as an alternative to liposuction for areas of localised fat, for example, back rolls, muffin tops, love handles.

Can I use this treatment? Ca

Good candidates have bulges in certain areas are they want to get rid of. This is not w a weight loss solution for people who are obe The client should always consult obese. with the practioner.

What can I do after the treatment? Usually we have patients going back to work immediately after the session. Some patients experience redness, tingling or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. For others some bruising and discomfort may occur.

How long until I see results? Visible changes occur as quickly as three weeks, while the most dramatic results show after two months. The body will continue to flush out fat cells along with its toxins up to four to six months after treatment.

Are these changes here to stay, or will they disappear? The affected fat cells will be eliminated. As long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.

Physiotherapists offer ‘two-pronged attack’ to treat injury problems When our body feels pain, it’s telling us that something is wrong, but it’s not necessary to live with ongoing musculoskeletal pain, says Richard Hopkins of Physiotherapy Associates in Wainoni Road.

“T

he function of pain is to act as a warning system so you are more aware of looking after that area of your body. However, when the body is injured the nerves can become extra sensitive, and this sensitivity can remain even after the injury is healed, so you are left with a pain you don’t have to have, which can become a chronic pain.” As Richard points out, we tend to avoid using the part of our body that is sore, and this can result in lack of normal movement, leading to gradual deconditioning of the muscles, resulting in more load on the joints. “If we avoid feeling the pain, this can become a problem because we are using that part of the body less. Even after the cause of the pain has gone, the pain may remain for a variety of reasons.” To deal with such situations, he and

fellow physiotherapist Wendy Cooper offer a “two-pronged attack”. “This involves dealing with the pain caused by the injury, and then treating the deconditioning to bring the body

back to normal.” Patients usually need an average of four to five physiotherapy sessions, though this can vary according to the extent of the injury and the deconditioning that has occurred. Richard and Wendy liaise with the patient’s GP or other health professionals if necessary. They also manage the ACC paperwork and arrange X-ray or ultrasound scans if required. You don’t need to be referred by your GP to receive physiotherapy treatment at Physiotherapy Associates, you can contact them directly to make an appointment, Richard says. Opening hours are 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. The clinic is located at 86a Wainoni Rd, opposite Porritt Park. Phone 389 7196.

T

he clean, squared-off lines of Strathmore are as desirable now as they ever were, lending themselves well to contemporary living. Clad in poured concrete, this 1937 home has the large rooms and solidity of build that was typical of its time and now partnered with extensive and clever renovations that include underfloor heating, very stylish bathrooms and a long, gallery-style balcony. Five bedrooms, two bathrooms, three living areas and a computer nook are all incorporated within its 333m2 floor plan, along with a designer kitchen and European-styled dining room. Totally private, the large botanical-styled grounds come courtesy of great landscaping and years of growth to produce specimen trees and lush plantings across approximately 1600m2 of land. Superb interior design and all the practical features, including triple car garaging and off-street parking, are just the start of a wonderful home that puts you in the heart of one of Christchurch’s most desirable suburbs with zoning for Christchurch Girls and Boys High Schools, and easy access to the retail, hospitality and services of Fendalton, Merivale and Riccarton. Once properties of this calibre sell, they are a long time coming back on the market so if you’re going to make your move on this one, you need to register your interest now.
