Buy this Beach campaigner behind new school pool „„ By Caitlin Miles

Olympian hands out medals It was two-time Olympic champion Lisa Carrington’s turn to hand out a medal – as Beckenham Primary School pupil Luke Menzies took home bronze at a recent international canoe competition. The year 8 pupil won two bronze medals at the New Zealand and Oceania Canoe Sprint Championships on Lake Karapiro. Luke, a member of Wainoni’s Arawa Canoe Club, finished third in the Tyros under-13 100m and 200m sprint races; fourth in the mixed team 200m and singles 500m events; and sixth in the two-person 200m sprint. The Arawa Canoe Club collected 26 gold, one silver and 20 bronze medals at the three-day competition.

ONE OF the Buy this Beach campaigners has been involved in another community project – a new pool for West Spreydon School. Duane Major (right) is part of a group which has been fundraising to replace the pool that was damaged in the 2011 earthquake. They hope to have it operating by Show Weekend in early November. “It’s been six long years,� said Mr Major, who has been on the school’s board of trustees since 2007. Mr Major and his brother-in-law Adam Gard’ner made global headlines last year when they started a Givealittle page and raised more than $2 million to buy Awaroa Inlet in Abel Tasman National Park for New

Zealanders. Mr Major said the swimming pool campaign was also “special.� “It’s something the kids want and something our community wants,� he said. A committee was launched in 2007 to repair the pool, which was unable to be used. However, the repairs were completed in February 2011 – five days

before the 6.1 magnitude quake struck, wrecking it. Undeterred, the committee set about raising $700,000 to help pay for a new pool. The pool is currently being transported in pieces from the United States. The design is more likely to survive an earthquake with minimal damage. The pieces move better as they can be taken apart and put back together. HQ Construction founder Huntley Quinn is one of several parents and businesses to contribute time and resources into the pool. The pool committee needs a further $200,000 for the changing sheds, filters, landscaping and fencing to surround the pool. To raise money, the committee is planning to host several fundraisers.

YOUNG LUKE Menzies will probably treasure the photo on the front page for a long time. Luke is photographed with Olympic canoeing champion Lisa Carrington, a sport he too could one day become famous in. I’m sure it was a great moment for Luke as Carrington presented him with one of his two bronze medals. Which reminds me of a moment many years ago after John Walker won the 1500m at the New Zealand Games at QE II against an international field building up for the Montreal Olympics. I dashed after him as he did his victory lap. Not long after that, a certain (very) young fella featured on the front cover of Sports Digest running alongside Walker with an autograph poised for a prized signature. The things you remember. –Barry Clarke

Slow zone for Somerfield School „„ By Caitlin Miles THE SPEED limit outside Somerfield School will be lowered by the middle of the year. The flashing signs advising motorists of the 40km/h speed limit will go on Studholme, Somerfield and Bard Sts, and non-flashing signs at the end of the school speed zones will go on Studholme St and on Tainui St. The school is currently in a 50km/h speed zone. A school zone is an area where the speed is reduced to 40km/h during times when pupils are arriving and leaving. Any other time the usual speed limit applies. The school is third on the city council’s priority list, behind Haeata Community Campus and Marshland School and ahead of Yaldhurst Model and Ouruhia Model School. Every year, the city council can lower speed limits outside about four schools with the $140,000 school speed zone budget. They are prioritised based on the school’s surroundings. Somerfield principal Denise Torrey said if the speed limit was reduced for all schools

SLOW: Somerfield School will have the speed lowered to 40km/h during school time to improve safety for pupils. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​ there might not be a need for the signs, as people would know it’s the same for every school. Ouruhia Model School on Turners Rd and Yaldhurst on School Rd were both approved in last year’s budget. The other schools are expected to have the lower speeds reduced by the middle of the year, leaving 13 on the city


Thank You for your Support

Port Hills list MP Nuk Korako joined the campaign to have the speed limits lowered following coverage in Southern View. He created a petition to have the speed lowered and collected more than 1400 signatures. He was scheduled to present it at yesterday’s Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board meeting.

In Brief NGAIO MARSH HOUSE The city council will decide tomorrow whether it will approve a grant of nearly $40,000 to Ngaio Marsh House. The Ngaio Marsh House and Heritage Trust requested $39,889 for the conservation, strengthening and repair work of the heritage property at 37 Valley Rd, Cashmere. The proposed works have been suggested as a result of the roof condition and maintenance report, along with fire protection, security and the replacement of the heating system. LIBRARY REPAIR GRANT The Opawa Public Library has been granted $3385 by the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to remove and store its contents. The city council plans to shift books, shelves and furniture out of the library on March 19 while repairs are carried out. The grant will cover storage costs for nine months. The city council expects to have the library repaired by the end of the year. CORRECTION An article in last week’s Southern View about the Sydenham Cemetery being cleaned up said it would be maintained every month. This is incorrect. City council contractors will maintain the graves when needed.

Petrol tax for road repairs and the benefits of diversity


McMaster Heap

Veterinary practice

Miracles do happen…. Misty is a 14 year old Rough Coated Collie ( lassie dog) lovingly owned by my parents. She’s never been a hugely energetic dog but has the gentlest, sweetest nature. She has had the odd health issue and is currently taking ongoing medication for arthritis of multiple joints. She’s not a complainer though and will still slowly walk around my parents farm, her favourite pastime being flushing out rabbits and doing cattle work with my dad. Shes always enjoyed a visit from Lola. Very sadly late last year, Misty was accidentally run over. My devastated parents flew to the clinic where Steve and our nurses immediately took charge. Luckily they live very close. She was remarkably alive and seemed in minimal shock, not like my poor mum and dad. Our nurses were fabulous – it was like triage in a hospital ER room. Whilst she was checked over for shock,

free and comfortable. She certainly wasn’t out of the woods but was better than any of us could have believed. She could walk, just, and was eating and had urinated. Misty continued to improve slowly over the coming days becoming stronger and more mobile but my dad had noticed what looked like crusty scabs under her dense coat. We discovered many of these blackened areas and after shaving her back end it became obvious that a large area of her skin was “dying”, due to vascular ( blood vessel) damage suffered at the time of the accident. Over the next 4 months a massive effort was undertaken by my mum and dad and Misty herself, to help heal these very extensive skin wounds, comparable to what you would see in burns victims. The area of skin that sloughed off initially was about 30cm by 20cm. The wound has had to be cleaned, kept moist and protected by bandaging for the past 4 months. She was monitored 24/7 and kept inside a lot to protect the bandages from slipping. Keeping flies away was also a difficult task. She has been so brave allowing us all to clean and dress it for her but finally the healing is nearly complete. There were times when my mum wasn’t sure we were getting anywhere and whether we were doing the right thing by her. She is an elderly dog and her ongoing care required by my parents was huge. But that aside, I could see Misty wanted to push through and keep going – she wasn’t ready to depart this world. Plus she was so dearly loved by my parents. It also helped that my mum was a registered nurse so could easily cope with large wounds and their care. Give an animal time, have patience and faith and show lots of love and miracles can happen. Every day I thank the higher powers that I am the one chosen to care for all the animals. -Dr Michele McMaster

City councillor Phil Clearwater has his say on the use of petrol tax to help fix the city’s roads and the importance of diversity in the community Many streets and roads in Christchurch still require a lot more work to bring them up to standard. I have always had the view that central Government should be returning some of the tax-take on petrol to help fix Christchurch’s streets. I have never said or supported any proposal to have any additional tax on petrol to help pay for Christchurch’s earthquake recovery. Christchurch people have enough burdens already and I would not support this. I have said that the city has a special case for further Government funding from some of the petrol tax Government already collects.

bleeding and fractures, the nurses were placing an IV line in her, were pulling bloods to check her internal organs and organizing shock and pain medications. I had to consult as it was a usual busy Saturday clinic. I can tell you its very hard to carry on as normal, when a dog you know and love is at risk of dying and I couldn’t be there to support my mum and dad. I’m very thankful to my husband Steve for arriving when he did and taking full control of the situation. Within 30 minutes of arriving Misty actually looked improved. She wasn’t wanting to stand, but her vital organs were all confirmed fine from her blood tests and her heart and lungs sounded fine. She was on IV fluids and we wanted to give her a little time on fluids before we had to sedate and xray her abdomen, chest and bones. She was an incredible little patient, never whimpering nor complaining once. Miraculously Misty had broken no bones – I was worried her pelvis or worse her lower lumbar spine could have fractured. Misty was discharged later that night into my parents care on a variety of medications to ensure she was pain





number of migrants and a significant number live in the suburbs of south Christchurch. The world is divided as to how we treat new migrants, but I believe we must find practical ways to make them feel welcome, as Christchurch needs their skills and they are an important part of our communities. Also, we have to remember that, at some stage in our history, all of our forebears immigrated to New Zealand from overseas. Six years after the earthquakes, Christchurch is really coming alive again and people from many nations will help our city thrive. Here’s to everyone having a great year in Christchurch.

News Design input sought Community can choose materials for building STEEL, TIMBER concrete or brick. Those are the options the public is being asked to choose from for the Woolston Community facility which will be built on Ferry Rd. The four designs vary slightly depending on the materials used. There are wood, brick, steel or concrete options for the public to choose from. Plans for the inside of the building incorporate a voluntary library, community space, parenting room, toilet and outdoor landscaping. The initial design process, carried out in October last year, included input from 22 different groups and what they thought was important for the facility to have. A public toilet, parents’ room and space for the library and community groups were identified as key needs for the community.


SCORCHED: Following a fire in 2015 city council contractors patched up holes in the Coronation Hall. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

POSSIBLE: The above design is an option open for consultation on a new community facility planned for Ferry Rd. It will take the place of the temporary structure which is now on the site (left).

The centre also plans to include a secured outdoor area, kitchen, courtyard seating and a cycle park. Car parking beside the site will remain. The centre will be built in place of the old Woolston volunteer library at 689 Ferry Rd, which was demolished after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake. The site currently has a small library and large outdoor area with seating and trees. Consultation closes on March 30 and the Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board is expected to discuss and make a decision on the plans in April.

Hall repair decision soon THE FINDINGS of an examination into whether or not Coronation Hall is worth saving will be known in the next two months. The hall, in Spreydon, was badly damaged in 2015 when a fire partially damaged the roof and one of the walls – making it unusable. It was used by community groups and the Kereru Sports and Cultural Club was based out of the hall, often using it for meetings and the nearby grounds to play on. When the building was damaged the club struggled to find a new place to set up, moving in just behind the hall to the

Spreydon Bowling Club. City council staff are looking at the extent of work that needs to be carried out and have started to investigate the piles and electrical systems. Additional weather proofing and repair designs for the roof and walls are also being looked at. Once the amount of work has been determined and additional repair designs are finalised, city council staff will price the work and make a decision on whether or not to proceed with repairs. This information is likely to be ready within the next two months.

Addington church celebrates 150 years „„ By Caitlin Miles THE OLDEST church in Addington celebrated 150 years recently. The Anglican Church of St Mary the Virgin was built in 1867 in the centre of Church Square. The celebrations went over two days, starting on February 18. A dinner on the Saturday night was a chance for church goers and former vicars and families who attend the church to reunite and reflect. It was followed by community celebrations on the Sunday. Current priest in charge, Rev1 NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf Mandy Neil said the Sunday

celebrations were “special” since the church was opened on February 19, 1867. The celebrations involved a community tea party and performances from Addington Brass and local musician Simon Hart. As part of the festivities, people also dressed in costume from the 1800s. Rev Neil said it was important to recognise and celebrate the people who started the Addington community, which led to the church. “These were really brave people; it’s about showing appreciation for what they did,” 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m. Rev Neil said.

FAMILIES: Judy Hopkins (daughter of vicar Ivor Hopkins), vicar Peter Williams, vicar Hugh Bowron, Margaret Merton, vicar John Merton, Robin Froud (daughter of vicar John Froud), Jim Hopkins (son of vicar Ivor Hopkins), Rev.

Does your body need a tune up? We all know car maintenance is important in terms of keeping it in running order and avoiding costly repairs later on. As the vehicle we live in every day, our body is even more important, but often due to our busy life it doesn’t get the exercise, fuel or maintenance it needs to run optimally. Just like a car, our body needs regular exercise, quality fuel, and every now and then a service. Sadly, sometimes our lives become too hectic to fit this in and so our energy levels, posture and ability to enjoy life suffer. The key is change. When life’s craziness prevents you from implementing this yourself or you just don’t know where to start, a personal trainer can help. All too often we go from being sedentary, with our focus elsewhere, to thinking our body still runs like the mustang it used to. A good trainer understands that before engaging in an exercise programme it is important to assess where you are. He or she will look at your posture, flexibility, strength, and movement patterns and ascertain what needs to be addressed to avoid injury and get you the best results as fast as possible. They will manage your

training so you can focus on the things that are important in life without having to spend the time figuring out what exercises will benefit you the most. If your body hasn’t had the attention it needs to enable you to enjoy the things that are important to you, maybe it’s time to make a change – to assess where you are, get an exercise programme in place and start tuning up the vehicle you live in every day (your body). This will allow you to get the best out of it and enjoy life without aches and pains. Trusting a personal trainer to help you will enable you to get the most benefit out of your training so you can maximise your time and enjoy life to the fullest. FORM Fitness at 140 Colombo Street has been operating for six years and all the trainers have over 10 years’ experience. With a focus on posture and injury prevention, they will manage your training and motivate and support you towards making positive changes to get the best you can out of your training and life.

The huge up-side of a throw-away society In today’s lifestyle, it is hard to deny the current trend of a throw-away society. As recent as fifty, seventy, a hundred years ago, households used and then recycled just about every item they owned, because that was how things worked. Modern life is full of conveniences, but short on time. The Salvation Army has been around for decades and thrives on the current trend known as a throw-away society. Their reputation is known community wide as a place for refuge, assistance and a caring hand. The Sallies enjoy providing a destination where people can buy clothes and household goods at a fraction of the price. The Sallies benefit when people generously choose to donate their old things to their

drop off spots as individuals have a good ole clean out. Out with the old—to the Salvation Army Family Stores—and in with the new! The Sallies would like to thank the Canterbury community. Whether born, bred and raised in New Zealand or migrated from another land, Cantabrians have generous hearts the Sallies do not take for granted. The Sallies worldwide mission is to recycle items society wants to throw away and give them a second life. This makes their stores a special haven for bargain shoppers and those who like nostalgia. Thanks to the patrons who shop at their locations, the profits from their Family Stores help fund their work with people

who might feel a little ‘thrown away’ by life, including those who just need a little support and encouragement to get a fresh start. Through their stores, they easily assist families who lose everything in fires, or who find themselves homeless and without furniture and clothes for other reasons. The money people spend at their Family Stores support community programmes such as their food banks, family support or advocacy outreach. The Sallies offer classes to the community such as budgeting. Their Family Stores offer a gateway to network and connect people with all kinds of social programmes. Their stores have even been known to offer people a second chance.

New after-hours service

provides flexibility for patients A new after-hours medical service has been launched in Christchurch with the aim of providing a better and more readily accessible service for patients outside normal medical centre hours. Dr Martin Seers, a GP at the Selwyn Medical Centre in Selwyn Street, says a group of GPs are testing this new model for out-of-hours medical service that enables people to book a specific time to see a doctor, rather than having to sit in an afterhours waiting room. He says anyone seeking medical assistance after hours should first call their own GP’s phone number, from where they will be connected to the Home Care Medical line. As with the Health Line phone service, a nurse will ask a set of questions to ascertain whether the person needs to see a doctor, and if not the nurse will advise on how the person can take care of themself at home. Should they need to see a doctor they then go online to the website AfterhoursGP., answer a few simple questions, then book an appointment at a time that suits. “This a totally new model and it’s not available anywhere else in Canterbury,” Dr Seers says. “It saves people money by providing selfcare advice for those who don’t need to see a GP, and for those who do, it doesn’t waste

Selwyn Village Healthcare 314 Selwyn Street, Spreydon, Christchurch.

Ph: 366 8970 We are thrilled to advise 2 new GPs have joined our family friendly Medical Centre. We welcome Dr Johanna Joblin and Dr Isobel Light to our professional team of GPs, Nurses and Receptionists. Our Medical Centre is conveniently located adjacent to a Pharmacy, Physiotherapist and Southern Community Laboratory.

their time.” The service is currently run out of Selwyn Street Medical Centre, which is conveniently located just off Brougham St, but the service is set up to be venue agnostic, so patients in future could be seen in any of the medical centres involved in the service, Dr Seers says. A key point of difference from the traditional after-hours surgery system is that it gives people the flexibility of choosing their appointment time. “It’s much more comfortable for people to wait at home until their appointment time, rather than sitting in a waiting room with other unwell people, and not knowing when they will be seen. “Another point of difference is that the service is designed as an ultralow bureaucracy system with minimal overheads. Using the facilities of existing, fully equipped medical centres means it’s free or less expensive,” Dr Seers says. The service is available Monday to Friday from 6pm-11pm and on weekends and public holidays as required. It is free for under-13 year-olds and $73 for most adults, which is cheaper than other afterhours services in Christchurch. For nonNew Zealand residents the cost is $95.
