Petition launched to slow drivers near schools „„ By Caitlin Miles MOMENTUM IS gathering for the city council to reduce speed restrictions outside Linwood Avenue, Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s Catholic schools after National list MP Nuk Korako started a petition in support. Southern View joined with the three schools last month, calling for the city council to reduce the speeds outside the school from 50km/h to 40km/h and to install flashing speed limit lights. Mr Korako (left) has set up a petition to garner more support for the proposal. He has also issued hard copies of the petition to the schools. He plans to close the petition on December 16 and present it to the city council shortly after. “I want to get the process going over Christmas to hopefully get things changed while the kids aren’t there,� he said. Schools are concerned about the safety of children on the way to and from school, with families fearful of another accident. Last year ex-pupil Isaiah Matoe was hit by a car outside the school when he tried to cross Ferry Rd. As a result his left ear had to be glued back on and

he was left with cuts and bruises. Te Waka Unua School principal Janeane Reid said the school is currently on a city council waiting list to have their road safety assessed. She said she hopes the petition will put the school higher on their list. “We don’t want to sit on a waiting list forever while our little people are at risk,� Miss Reid said. Linwood Ave School has been in discussions with the city council about safety. City council staff have suggested adding another school sign to let drivers know about the school. However, principal Blair Dravitski would still like to see flashing signs outside the school. St Anne’s Catholic School principal Dallas Wichman said he hopes the petition will spur the city council into action. “We’re on board, just anything that will help,� he said. “Ferry Rd is a mad road so we want the speed reduced,� he said. Traffic figures from April showed an average of 24,600 vehicles per day used Ferry Rd, between Osborne St and Aldwins Rd, with 1810 during peak traffic from 8am-9am and the same figures for the school peak between 3pm and 4pm.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK IT IS an absolute given that children should be safe on their travels to school. Families should not have to fret about vehicles zooming past the school gate at a speed that causes concern. That is why Southern View alongside Te Waka Unua, Linwood Ave and St Anne’s schools have over the past few months called for a lower speed limit outside these schools which are on busy streets. It is therefore great news that National list MP Nuk Korako, based in the Port Hills, has jumped on board by starting a petition to help push the city council in its decision making. We will continue to keep you up to date with how this issue progresses – at the moment it lies with the city council who are preparing a report. Let’s hope it does not take as long as the Linwood pool report. Hei kona, Shelley Robinson

New home for playcentre during rebuild „„ By Kate Barber WHILE ITS premises are being rebuilt the Woolston Playcentre will share a facility with its Linwood neighbour. The playcentre at 29 Portman St suffered damage during the February 22, 2011, earthquake and is set to be demolished, leaving families wondering where they would take their children. But Linwood Playcentre, located at 628a Worcester St, has jumped in to help, opening its doors to the children and families of Woolston.

Linwood president, Andrea Read said she wants families coming into the centre to feel welcome and like they belong there. “We want Woolston to feel like it is their home too,’’ Ms Read said. Woolston president Rachel Pharazyn said while the partnership is still in the early stages and the two groups are working together to merge the cultures of the playcentres. “It is so important we keep the momentum going and the culture strong within our centre

as we merge with a new group of families,’’ she said. While the adults are still getting to know each other and settling into new routines, Ms Pharazyn said the children have transitioned smoothly to their new location and making new friends. She said while the staff, children and parents are looking forward to getting into the new playcentre once it’s built but, for now, they are happy to work with Linwood Playcentre and add more families and children to their network.

FUN: Children from Woolston Playcentre had a bit of help from their fathers who dug a moat in the sandpit for children to play in. ​

Carved panel unveiled A MAORI carved panel created from reused wood from a house demolished following the February 22, 2011, earthquake has been gifted to Waltham Pool. The He Toki panel, built by carpentry students and staff at Ara Institute of Canterbury in 2015, was unveiled in a ceremony at the pool last week. Ara carpentry tutor Jim Keenan said seeing it unveiled was a special moment for those involved. “It was a very proud moment when the panel was officially blessed at the pool,” Mr Keenan said. The panel was originally created as part of the Whole House Reuse exhibition, on display at Canterbury Museum last year. The timber for this project was provided from the deconstruction of a single storey red-zone house. This project was to demonstrate that demolition materials could be recycled and made into items of value and beauty. The strips of timber were removed from under the plaster of the internal walls. Different parts of the design represent different things. The ‘poutama’ (stairway or step-like) pattern presented on the outside of this design symbolises the

In Brief SELWYN ST CAR PARKS A controversial plan to rid Selwyn St of 19 car parks outside the new shop development closes for public input on Monday. The Selwyn St Shops Streetscape Enhancement plans to get rid of car parks to make way for cycleways an improved pedestrian safety, between Brougham and Coronation St. It is part of the Selwyn St Shops Master Plan which was adopted in 2012 following the Canterbury earthquakes due to about 60 per cent of the buildings along the street being lost or deemed unusable. Go to https://ccc.govt.nz/the-council/ have-your-say/whats-happeningnow/consultations/ to make a submission. CEMETERY UPDATE The future of Bromley Cemetery is still yet undecided. The cemetery is at capacity and is only open to pre-purchased plots and second internments. City council staff have not undertaken any plans to develop the site for either burials or ash interments. City council operations manager neighbourhood and sports parks Al Hardy said it does not mean that the site of the old sexton’s house cannot be used in the future, and that adjacent cemeteries Memorial Park and Ruru Lawn are still open and have significant capacity for future interments.

The central piece of this design is represented by the ‘niho taniwha’ pattern which means teeth of the taniwha and represents leadership or that which is portrayed by a chief. The ‘niho taniwha’ design is incorporated within the He Toki ki te Rika logo.

PARKING RESTRICTIONS Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board has approved parking restrictions Kidsfirst Kindergarten Beckenham asked for. The kindergarten asked for changes to be made to its mobility car park beside the 119 Fisher Ave premises. The kindergarten wanted the hours changed to better fit their operating hours. The proposal looked to reduce the parking restrictions by 30min. This means parking restrictions will be in place 8.15am-8.45am, 12.15pm-12.45pm and 2.15pm-2.45pm from Monday to Friday.

Fire Service in quake recovery mode Fire risk management officer Mark Thomas talks about the Fire Service’s duties in Kaikoura and Waiau, as well as some incidents in the city It’s certainly very different this time. Christchurch city is back to normal and, for most people, it’s business as usual. But Waiau and Kaikoura are definitely part of our fire region and we have a considerable number of staff on the ground up there. Our Regional Control Centre remains open and operating and local staff are picking up heaps of overtime to cover the absence of those working on the earthquake. So it’s a matter of juggling Readers respond to an article about the city council possibly installing no parking lines along Rapaki Rd to improve the safety of residents and those using the road to get to Rapaki Track Emmanuel Navasquez, of Addington – I am a regular mountain biker at Port Hills. In my opinion, there is no doubt that it is so much safer and enjoyable if Rapaki Rd is empty of parked vehicles. It is just getting narrower. When I see families cycling up there, kids and couples, I fear for their safety. Hope it will be acted on sooner before anything untoward happens, God forbid! Pete Sullivan, of Hillsborough – What a great photo of traffic congestion on Rapaki Rd. The garage shown in your Southern View article is ours and it illustrates how congested it can actually get here in Rapaki Rd. We have a vehicle in the garage, which can be a challenge getting out on to

normal work and quake work for those of us doing both. The upside is that Christchurch has not had a terribly busy week. Car crashes were quite high, however, including one at Ferry Rd and Ensors Rd on Sunday evening, in which 11 people were hurt, nine requiring transport to hospital. As usual, animal rescues became our responsibility with a cat stuck in a fence in Waltham last Friday and a dog stuck down a cliff in Dyers Pass Rd on Monday. In both cases, firefighters were rewarded for their efforts by the victims immediately bolting once back on flat ground. Ungrateful, but not unexpected, I suppose. A classic kitchen fire was the road without an observer. The family also has two vehicles parked outside our property on the road. It is virtually impossible to leave these parks, especially in the weekends, and come back and have a space to park. I feel the problem here is very few of us have off-street parking. The council’s plan to have further no parking lines is a great idea and I’m very much supportive of this, however, I and other residents feel that it will add even more pressure on the parking spaces left, as it seems some people just don’t want to walk a few more metres as we see in supermarket car parks. We as residents love to see the track being used as it is; it’s a great asset for us all. However, I feel ‘resident’s only’ parking maybe the only option up here. Colin Moss, of Hillsborough – Yes, the parking is terrible up there at the weekend. But Vernon Tce also has problems near the Centaurus Rd end to just around the bend about halfway along. Kids dart out amongst parked cars and

who knows? Tired or tiddly going home to cook is not recommended. Indulge yourself, buy takeaways.

Heather McGuigan – We have been house sitting up Rapaki Rd now for three months and, as the weather warms up, it gets crazier by the day. It isn’t restricted to the weekends (which is worst) but now also after work during the week. I would certainly never buy and live here permanently. And it’s not only the parking, it’s the total

attitude of people who use the road to get to the track. People who do walk up the road don’t walk on the footpath, they walk on the road three, four or five abreast across the road and they don’t move at all for a car. When they run out of puff, they lean all over your fence, talk loudly to each other and generally take over. They will stand outside your house in the only space left as you’re trying to get into this park outside the house you pay rates on. And you need to ask them repeatedly to please move so you can park. The cyclists are better, although I think some of them going down the hill break the speed limit – they are flying. The road needs work on it, and the kerbing also. The amount of people and animals – walking, cycling and in cars – that use it daily spoil what would be a pleasant place to live. Parking and a toilet is needed at the bottom of the hill and resident’s only parking on the street, although I’m not sure the people at the bottom of the road would want them either!

Courtney McGregor

Olympic gymnast returns home Courtney McGregor, 18, caught the nation’s attention at the Rio Olympics. Fraser Walker-Pearce talked to the gymnast about how she found out she had been selected for Rio, the United States college system and what it’s like to be back home in Halswell again Hi Courtney, you’ve had an incredible year. What was it like competing at the Olympics? The Olympics was amazing. It was a lot of hard work to get there in the first place and I just hoped I’d be there. So to get on the team was amazing. We were aiming for top 16 and I managed 13th and had no major mistakes so that was pretty awesome. How long has it been a dream for you to compete at the Olympics? Oh wow, for a long time. Definitely from a really young age, from maybe six or seven. I always thought I’d go to the Olympics, I always just assumed I’d go as kids do. I figured out as time went on that it was a little harder than I initially thought it was. And when did you actually think it was possible that you could become an Olympic athlete? I think it was at the 2015 worlds’ competition. I did better than anyone thought. I think probably after that test event, I had to get a certain all-round score and when I got that I thought that it could be a possibility, but I still had to get a lot checked off. I still remember the call we got from the GymSport New Zealand chief executive officer; he told us we weren’t allowed to tell anyone and we had to Facetime (video call) him to find out whether I was in or out. He called my mum and I, and he told us I was going. I was only allowed to tell immediate family and it was at least three or four days walking around telling my school mates that I didn’t know yet before I could tell people. That must have been hard! What happened after you were

selected for the team? I got flown up to Auckland where they announced the gymnastics team, all of us were announced. There was a lot of media there that day and we must have each told our life story about 10 times. Talking to other Christchurch gymnasts, they were all excited to hear you were on your way back from college in the United States. How do you handle being a role model for younger gymnasts? It’s pretty cool I think, and kind of surreal. I went into the Christchurch School of Gymnastics and all the wee kids were all excited and happy to see me which was cool. Then I went over to Olympia (Gymnastic Sports) to see a friend who is a coach there and I saw her little girls and they were all excited as well. You’re at home at the moment, but when that’s finished you’ll head back to the United States? Yes. At the moment I’m based over at Boise State University in the US on a gymnastics scholarship. So that starts back up in January, so I’ll be heading back over there soon. What are the big competitions you’ll be looking forward to in both college and New Zealand next year? Next year there is the 2017 worlds in Montreal, Canada, which is kind of close to where I am. And also the Commonwealth Games in 2018. But I think that might interfere with some of the college events. So you might miss the Commonwealth Games? That’s a bit annoying? It’s just that it coincides with the college gymnastics season.

They always have regionals and nationals and that kind of thing at the end of their season so it might clash. What was seeing younger gymnasts at your old club like? It was pretty special. It’s kind of crazy that I now inspire the younger kids when I was in their shoes a few years ago. Some clubs haven’t had the most successful

events recently, but they’ve got good programmes in place and I think they’ll be doing fine soon. Tell me a bit about some of the young kids’ reactions to seeing you?

me. And are you studying a subject over at Boise State as well? Yes, I’m doing a lot of studying on general things, but I’m also doing health science. The set up is kind of different over there as compared to in New Zealand. So are you aiming to become a doctor or a surgeon or something like that? I’m not 100 per cent sure yet, but I might want to be a doctor. There’s so many schools over here I really don’t know which ones are the best for studying to be a doctor. In terms of your scholarship, what does that cover for you? It’s a full scholarship for all schooling, housing and everything. It’s pretty good to be honest. What school did you attend when you were in Christchurch? I was at Villa Maria College for most of it and I did correspondence for the last couple. I think that school is more important than gymnastics, as it was my top priority and correspondence allowed me to get on with my work and then I had time to do gym after. It just cut out all of the assemblies and hour-long lunch times and that kind of thing – it really worked for me. Did you get to meet quite a few famous people while you were over in Rio and at college? Yes definitely. Even in Rio I got to meet all the final five gymnasts and Simone Biles (all-round vault and floor gold medallist from the US) and everyone like that and I get to see them sometimes, because most of them are in college gymnastics now. When we were in Rio we trained with them all, we were in the same part of the Olympic Village as the American team which was great. Do you keep in touch with a few of them? Yes, we talk over social media sometimes which is nice.

TWO HELICOPTER companies answered Cashmere High’s call for help to transport 150 boxes of donated goods to those impacted by the recent 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Following the November 14 earthquake that damaged parts of Kaikoura and North Canterbury, Cashmere High asked the community to donate non-perishable food, animal food and baby items to the school. As items started to mount up, the school realised they would need some serious help getting the supplies to the affected areas. Garden City and Christchurch City Helicopters came to their aid and delivered the goods to Kaikoura last Monday. The school asked the community to donate what they could and within the week members of staff filled more than 150 boxes. Rosy Cheeks Early Learning Centre in Somerfield also got involved, dropping off goods they

With the family having left home this magnificent home is now simply too big for the vendor. Quintessentially Cashmere this superb home with sweeping views and all day sun will please the most discerning buyer. A superbly designed extension by Sheppard and Rout has resulted in a six bedroom, four bathroom, three living room home retaining the style and charm of its history whilst giving the benefit of modern day living. Step into the large elegant entranceway and on into the large family kitchen and dining room area featuring beautiful timber floors and then through to the family room. A large formal wood panelled lounge is a wonderful space to perhaps achieve a quiet area from the bustle of family life. The adjoining conservatory can also double as room for teenagers, being big enough to take a table tennis table. A media room complete with speakers, projector and screen is a great place to entertain family and friends, perhaps after a bbq and swim in the heated inground pool. But perhaps the real surprise lies at the top of the house. Here is a purpose-built workspace, generous in size and ideal for those who wish to work from home. There is room for three people to comfortably work plus storage space for samples or stock. Attention to detail continues even into laundry and a refrigerated cool room. The large private grounds are a joy for the gardener with expansive lawns and well established trees and shrubs. You can sit on the deck and admire your garden in these long summer days to come. There is so much to see in the house - call now to view your new home.

SPORTS

New sport fields for Waltham School Linwood Keas finished in the top four in the club’s first attempt at the Queenstown Nines Carnival on the weekend. The Pat Smyth Trophy winner’s got off to a great start at the tournament, defeating 2015 nines champion, the Hornby Panthers, 14-8. They then accounted for the Invercargill Cooks 26-0 in their second pool game before going down 14-15 to the Tumeke Natives. The Keas defeated Dunedin’s Kia Toa Tigers 36-4 to qualify for the tournament semi-finals but didn’t make it any further after being defeated 13-26 by Dunedin’s East Coast Eagles. The tournament was won by the Riccarton Knights, who defeated the Eagles in the final with an extra-time golden try to win 12-8. Keas coach Andrew Auimatagi said: “It was a long day but the boys really enjoyed it. Obviously we were gutted to bomb out in the semi but, overall, it was a really good weekend for league.” Auimatagi said the team will be back in 2017 for another crack at the title.

SPEEDSTER: Linwood’s Rangitane Thompson was crowned Queenstown Nines Carnival fastest player after winning a 100m race held during the tournament.

Sydenham nab one-run victory SYDENHAM WON a nail-biter against Riccarton on Saturday in the latest round of the Metro Premier men’s oneday competition. One run was the difference between the two teams as Riccarton fell short after being bowled out for 200 in their chase. It was Sydenham’s second win of the campaign. Canterbury batsman Chad Bowes, fresh from a 155 knock against Auckland, got Sydenham off to a fast start with 28 runs off 20 balls. The innings hit a road block with three wickets falling for just five runs as Sydenham found themselves 38/3. Ryan Wallace (68) kick-started the innings and combined with Talor Scott (40) for a 59run six-wicket partnership. Riccarton and Canterbury all-rounder Cole McConchie was the best of the Riccarton bowlers, taking three wickets

for 25 runs as Sydenham were dismissed for 201 in the 50th over. Riccarton’s chase got off to a great start with Liam Bartholomeusz (88) getting his side through to 104/1 before the second wicket fell. The Sydenham attack of Chris Harris (2), Tom Agnew (1), Mitchell Gardner (2), Braden Gardner (1) and Wallace (4) were able to take regular wickets as Riccarton’s middle and tail-order batsmen got starts but failed to capitalise. Wallace wrapped up the narrow win for Sydenham in the 35th over when he dismissed Jai Lyons. The win ensures Sydenham remain seventh in the eightteam competition. Sydenham will play Burnside West Christchurch University in the next round of the competition on Saturday.

KEY MAN: Ryan Wallace top scored for Sydenham with a knock of 68 before ripping through Riccarton’s batting line-up with four wickets. ​

WALTHAM SCHOOL is one of 11 Canterbury primary schools to have been gifted a new sports turf. SKY television gifted the turfs to schools which lost or incurred significant damage to playing fields in the earthquakes. Worth almost $20,000 each, the Julyan Falloon turfs are part of the company’s $1 million, five-year commitment to help repair the city. SKY’s director of corporate communication Kirsty Way said the turfs would make a big difference to the schools. “It is very important for children to be active and outdoors and Sport Canterbury can use these turfs to help develop new programmes to increase sports participation,” she said. Sport Canterbury chief executive Julyan Falloon said the donation will allow his organisation to deliver new activities to the mostly low-decile schools. “A number of schools lost their outdoor play areas in the earthquakes. In addition, population shifts meant some schools saw their decile rating change, which meant they lost funding, while others had an influx of pupils, resulting in new buildings taking up space on the playing fields,” said Falloon. SKY’s $1 million commitment to the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust saw it give $200,000 to repair Garrick Park in 2013, with the same amount donated to West Spreydon School the following year to restore the community’s much-loved swimming pool.

THE MALTWORKS VILLAS

13

New villas offer lifestyle and financial benefits The Maltworks Villas residential complex being constructed on the former Maltworks site in Heathcote Valley is designed for people in the over-55 age group that enjoy an active lifestyle and want to live in a place where natural beauty defines their surroundings. Located at 66 Port Hills Road, the Maltworks Villas will not only have views of the Port Hills, but will also have the additional benefits of the micro-climate environment of the valley. Developed by PLC Group, the complex will comprise 65 villas in duplex or terraced housing styles. There are 11 plans available in different sizes, with two- or three-bedroom and one- or two-bathroom units being offered. The advantage of the larger sizes is that purchasers will be able to bring more of

their existing belongings to their new home, rather than having to dispose of them. Construction is linear, with doubleglazed windows and Colorsteel roofing with solar panels to reduce the cost of power for residents. Villas will have a single or double garage, depending on the size, while the common areas of the complex will be attractively landscaped and maintained by a caretaker. A key advantage for purchasers of villas at the Maltworks development is that ownership is a freehold unit title, rather than a licence to occupy. This will allow owners to benefit from the growth in capital value of their unit, rather than having limited access to participate in increased value, as is the case with the licence to occupy model.

Twiss-Keir Realty Committed to excellence. Our mission is simple: to deliver exceptional, personal service and the best possible outcomes for every client we work with. At Harcourts Twiss-Keir, we like setting and achieving exceptionally high standards. Thinking of selling or buying, call one of our friendly consultants today 03 323 6045.

twisskeir.co.nz Licensed Agent REAA 2008 Licensed Agent REAA 2008

PLC Groups has been operating for 15 years and has developed three over 55/60 lifestyle villages based on the freehold unit title model. The Maltworks Villas are designed to create a community environment, where people of similar interests can enjoy companionship and share activities, with the well-appointed clubhouse offering facilities for socialising and special events. A store and cafĂŠ are to be built alongside the village, while a wide range of recreational facilities in close proximity to Maltworks Villas offer plenty of opportunities for enjoying social and leisure activities. Ferrymead, with its multitude of retail and commercial Under offer

businesses, is a short drive away, the Eastgate shopping centre is approximately 12 minutes’ drive away, and Lyttelton township and harbour are also within easy reach through the tunnel. There is a bus stop located 100 metres from the entrance to the village, with buses running to and from the city centre on a regular basis. Fourteen of the villas are under offer with earthworks currently underway and construction of the first lot of villas expected to be completed early in the New Year.

Those wanting more information on Maltworks Villas should contact Michelle Tait, 027 668 6268, or Gemma Roberts Harcourts Twiss Keir, 027 223 6471 or 03 323 6045 gemma.roberts@harcourts.co.nz. Licensed Agent REAA 2008.

Experts restore that

“winning smile” MEETING PEOPLE for the first time, interacting with others on social occasions, going for a job interview - in all these situations your smile is the most important part of you. Or perhaps, on a lighter note, you might be scaring yourself with your ‘selfie’ because your smile is not as attractive as it should be, due to missing or broken teeth. Perhaps it’s time for a visit to Denture South in Barrington, where the experts can give you that winning smile back. Clinical dental technician, Andrew Johnson and associate Janice ling can provide you with a highly personalised experience. We have a lot of knowledge and experience that can help guide you through the process. For people who have had dentures for a while and are finding they frequently need to buy denture adhesive to keep them in place, Andrew advises having the dentures relined so they will fit better. As he points out, the money spent on denture adhesive over 12 months would easily cover the cost of having your dentures refitted. Denture South has been providing a full range of denture services for the residents of Christchurch for over 13 years. These services include first-time immediate

dentures, full replacement dentures, partial plates and sports mouth-guards. Many Denture South clients come through word-of-mouth referral, an indication of the level of satisfaction that’s provided there. Coming into Christmas we will be open and available for all adjustments for our existing patients in the final week, making for a great Christmas. The friendly Denture South team.

Conveniently located at 230 Barrington Street, Denture South has off-street parking. Phone 332-4004 for a complimentary consultation.
