Opposition to multi-unit housing development mounts „„ By Noah Graham RESIDENTS OF a Somerfield street are joining together to stop a multi-unit development from going ahead, saying it will ruin their neighbourhood. More than 20 residents say Multay Developments Ltd’s plans to build four, two-storey townhouse units on 23 Studholme St will ruin their street’s familyorientated appeal. Residents have collected about 300 signatures for their petition to oppose the development and

shared their concerns at the Somerfield Residents’ Association meeting earlier this month. Retain Somerfield’s Character group member Marty Flanagan said the development of multiunit housing would ruin the neighbourhood. “We want to keep Somerfield as a family-friendly area and to have houses with space for kids to play and have a certain degree of privacy. “The proposed development is so at odds with everything else

Running for a good cause ST MARK’S School house leaders are organising a fun run to raise money for three charities. Six year 8 pupils (Lilly Okey, Brieanna Cox, Julia Glassey, Bella Edwards, Sophia Tiso and Millie Trustum) have all used their own initiative to help fundraise money for Cholmondeley Children’s Centre, Ronald McDonald House and KidsCan. St Mark’s School deputy principal Adrian Rennie said the pupils had been in contact with the

charities and came up with the idea themselves. “It’s their brain child and they have done a really good job” He said pupils will dress in house colours which will represent one of the three charities and will compete in an obstacle course held at the school grounds. Mr Rennie said the house leaders asked their friends and family to donate and hope to raise between $100-200 per charity. The event will be held on April 7.

FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK SOMERFIELD residents are opposing a multi-unit development for 23 Studholme St saying it will negatively impact the community (page 1). With infrastructure in place, multi-unit developments can work. Although I agree multiple-unit buildings on one block of land detracts from the family-focused appeal they once held, they can also help those who really need it. As someone who needed a place close to work for a reasonable price, a room in a multi-unit building block was the perfect place for me. However, my view would be completely different if I owned a car. A quick stroll down my street and it is obvious there is not enough space for the number of vehicles trying to cram themselves against the curb. With more multi-unit developments in the area it is no wonder residents feel uneasy about new developments. – Noah Graham

Fear of sediment entering river „„ By Noah Graham CITY COUNCIL need to act quickly to stop sediment runoff damaging the Heathcote River and nearby streams, local groups say. Last month’s Port Hills fire left the hillsides bare and with a lack of vegetation with the potential for sediment run-off to cause irreparable damage, Cashmere Stream Care Group chairperson Ken Rouse said. Mr Rouse said it is only a matter of time before there is a

heavy rain storm in Christchurch which could cause sediment to wash off the hillside. He said city council need to act fast and allocate enough money to do the job properly if they are to limit the amount of damage to waterways. Spreydon-Cashmere community board member and Opawaho Heathcote River Network co-chairwoman Helene Mautner (left) said she was “very concerned” by the sediment issue. She said an increase of ash and soil in the Heathcote River could

have devastating effects on the aquatic life. Dr Mautner said the sediment blocks sunlight to the plants which will result in a knock-on effect that will impact the whole ecosystem. She said revegetation needs to start as soon as possible. Environment Canterbury service delivery senior manager Brett Aldridge said sediment is detrimental to the health of the waterways as it smothers the aquatic life. He said ECan are working with city council to provide landowners with good informa-

About $23,000 was spent to install the panels which were tagged within three weeks of being put in place. The panels were cleaned with a solvent and its anti-graffiti film did not need to be replaced. The work cost $60 for the solvent plus four hours of labour.

Police attempted to pull him over at about 10pm. He didn’t stop initially, but eventually pulled over.

McMaster Heap

Veterinary practice

Gizmo’s Adventure Gizmo, an 11 year old Ginger tabby from Sydney, presented to Catherine one morning with an acute left hindleg lameness. He wasn’t placing any weight on the leg and seemed in a lot of pain. Catherine suspected a femoral fracture due to his leg swinging and the obvious angulation mid femur. No other injuries were seen. He had normal neurological function. All his nails were scuffed and worn. Most often we see these injuries with road traffic accidents. Blood work the previous week was great. Catherine performed a digital xray to confirm her suspicions and Gizmo was immediately placed on intravenous fluids with pain relief ( a fentanyl CRI) and started on penicillin. A transverse femoral fracture located proximal third femur was diagnosed. His diaphragm was intact, as was his bladder and all his other abdominal organs looked fine. Surgery to repair the fracture or amputation were the only options

available. This fracture couldn’t be left to just heal on its own. The clients were informed of the options – a referral to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon to plate the femur or IM pinning and cerclage wire performed at McMaster & Heap Vet practice. We repeated blood work to make sure Gizmo was still in good health to sustain an anaesthetic. The IM pinning option was adopted. His ongoing arthritic issues would have made losing a hindleg difficult for him to cope with, especially at 11 years old. Dr Michele McMaster performed the surgery within 24 hours of Gizmo being admitted. It is important with this type of injury to get those bone ends realigned as soon as possible. The anaesthetic and surgery went without a hitch. Gizmo was connected to our Cardell monitoring machine. The nurses can record his heart rate, blood pressure, breathing rate, body core temperature and

oxygen saturation every 5 minutes during his anaesthetic. All his vital signs were excellent. I placed a large intramedullary pin through the medullary cavity of his femur to reduce the fracture and align the ends of the femur. A single cerclage wire was also placed to create as much stability as possible. Post operative xrays confirmed perfect placement. Now the rest is up to Gizmo. Gizmo was discharged

New central base will serve as a hub for St John „„ By Noah Graham ST JOHN has opened its new $5 million ambulance hub.

He will be in a cage for 4-6 weeks to allow as much immobility as possible for fracture healing. I will remove the pin in about 6-8 weeks once the fracture site has calloused and healed. Gizmo will be back weekly for us to check on his progress. A great outcome all around.

the service more efficient, St John Christchurch area committee chair Graham Gillespie said. He said all ambulance shifts in Christchurch will start and finish at the central station, maximising ambulance officers’ time and allowing staff to respond quicker to patients. “It will let us spend more time caring for our patients and the community,” he said. 1Mr1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m. Gillespie said it was quite an emotional time for

many of the St John staff who had worked in the mud and water in the St Asaph St car park after the February 2011 earthquake. After that, the staff were based out of a rented station on Disraeli St, which has been closed. They will eventually move from their current Wrights Rd station into the new hub on St Asaph St. He said the opening went exceptionally well and it was great to host the prime minister.

Housing developments changing Addington Addington Manuka Cottage community development worker Cherylan Davies talks about where Addington’s housing development is heading and the issues that come with the changes The changing face of Addington has raised some questions among residents and community groups. Some of the changes have been considered progress, while others have created angst among a great many residents who have lived in Addington for years. The concern is driven by the loss of Addington’s historic character and the picturesque peacefulness that it fashioned. As an older suburb, Addington’s identity has a rich tapestry

of stories, historic buildings, working class cottages, and quirky, narrow, tree-lined streets, with chirping native birds that enhance the park-like peaceful setting residents have enjoyed since the suburb’s establishment.

A community that works well is one where residents are invested in their local neighbourhood. This occurs by being involved in local issues, joining local residents’ associations, meeting

the people in your street, having spaces for locals to enjoy events, walking the dog, picnics and enjoying the company of others, mixed with a tolerance of each other. It’s a community where people

talk to one another freely. Infill housing encourages a high transient rental population that often causes its own social problems. Short-term tenants are less likely to be involved in the area and neighbours are less likely to invest in getting to know the people next door. The development of housing is important. While L3 zoning may answer the infrastructure pressures, if a good plan for the suburb is not put in place by the community and the city planners, then it comes at the cost of the loss of a sense of belonging, identity and community well-being. A community that has a good balance of standalone houses, mixed with aesthetically pleasing apartment complexes, access to purposeful green spaces and community facilities is a fortunate suburb indeed.

Anti-graffiti panels installed on the Woolston Borough Monument to counter its long-running tagging issue were spraypainted within three weeks of being put in place You said Suzi de Gouveia – If we all acknowledge that those who find the need to scribble on surfaces that don’t belong to them are challenged in the manhood department, they might be less

Tane Apanui

Campaigner for commuter Tane Apanui talks to Noah Graham about his campaign to gain support for a railway system that would run from North Canterbury through Papanui and into the city How has It been trying to organise the Dash Rail project? I’m a one-man band, so it’s been very difficult trying to organise it. It’s been more than two years of work getting it done. The last city council were a bit more difficult to work with, whereas the new city council is a lot better to work with so that’s been good. I think we’ve elected the right people. Why is having a community railway system in Christchurch important? We Kiwis, we’re addicted to cars. When I was in Australia, I bought myself a nice Holden Commodore but then I took the train and I thought, wow, this is stress-free. You just jump on the train. One of the telling numbers for me that showed we need it was the suicide rate in Christchurch has doubled since the quakes. So I thought about the amount of stress it takes to break someone and if we are adding an extra 10 hours a week of stress because of the

morning commute, when we could be sitting on a train using wi-fi just relaxing before work, I think it would go a long way to helping the mindset of the city. We’re fairly tense at the moment and we have been for a couple of years. So putting in a railway that needs to be done anyway, is going to help alleviate those daily stresses. What are some of the challenges you have faced while trying to get this system under way? One of the biggest obstructions I’ve faced when it comes to putting in rail is people don’t think it will succeed. But when you look at modelling for transport, the No 1 concern is travel time. The train is twice as fast as a bus and 50 per cent faster than a car. So when people wonder why the buses are failing, it’s because they are too slow. Whereas if they were to link up with a main system – this is where the rail should be a centrepiece – your whole public transport

system would function better. At the moment, the buses are floundering all over the city. What was it like being a Hornby Ward candidate last year and why did you do it? It was difficult as well. Constituents base a lot of their trust on whether they have met you or not, regardless of what you are

actually like. I would go doorknocking and people would say they have already made up their mind. That was hard. I’m a lucky person. No-one can achieve anything without the community around them. You can’t be successful without people lifting you up or putting you in a position to be successful. I suppose growing

up in a poverty-stricken, broken home, I managed to get a couple of lucky breaks. I came over to Canterbury to play hockey. Even though I’m a high school drop-out from a poor family, I got these really cool opportunities. As a community, we need to recognise the people who have actually helped us get there.

Then I went on to play for the Canterbury under-21s in 2000. We won both of those tournaments, the under-18 and the under-21s. Then, a few years later, I went on to coach the under-21s and we won both of those tournaments

SPORTS Cashmere teen takes triathlon title Te Waka Unua wins tournament „„ By Andrew King SOLA KUWASAKI’S hard work on his swimming during the winter paid off as he won his age group at the Canterbury secondary schools triathlon championships on Tuesday at Scarborough. The Cashmere High School student’s time of 33min 23.6sec saw him finish fourth overall and top of the under-16 men’s individual group. The 16-year-old from Hillsborough achieved the win in spite of having a cold in the lead up to the race. “I was feeling pretty good before the race. I was relaxed even though I had the cold in the lead up,” Kuwasaki said. He finished up behind Saxon Morgan, 31min 57.6sec, Zachary Taylor, 32min 47.6sec and William Taylor, 33min 11.4sec. “I was slightly disappointed I finished behind (William Taylor) as he is a bit younger, but he is very good,” he said. His swimming, he said, was a weak spot in his arsenal, and he had worked hard to make it a strength of his. “I have been doing more swimming than running or biking lately,” he said. When asked if it would be something he would like to pursue as a career, he said he would rather just enjoy it for as long as possible. “I haven’t really thought about

it, but I really love the sense of achievement,” he said. He trains with a lot of the guys he competes against and said that was “quite nice.” Looking ahead to the New Zealand schools triathlon national championships on Thursday in Wanganui, he said he will have to train like mad to compete with some of the top school-aged athletes in the country. “Some of their times are pretty intimidating. But I’m keen to give it a good whack,” he said.

„„ By Andrew King YOUTHTOWN’S inaugural super 10 competition brought schools together on Friday for futsal, basketball and ripper rugby and the opportunity for students to give a different sport a go. Woolston’s Te Waka Unua School were the overall winners on the day with their skills across the three sports, while Cashmere Primary School won the fair play award. The fair play award was for the team best displaying Youthtown’s values of belonging, mastery, generosity and independence. Other schools involved included Rowley Ave, Casebrook Intermediate, Heaton Normal Intermediate, Chisnallwood Intermediate, Cathedral College and Parkview. Programme co-ordinator Iosua Tauti said the tournament is not your “normal” competition. “These are the kids that don’t get the opportunity to play for their school and love sport but might not be good enough to be picked in these sorts of teams,” he said.

Full range of services at popular local salon Since opening in September last year, the Cashmere Road hair salon 50 Shades of Fabulous has been proving popular with a growing clientele and the business is going very well, says owner Rebecca Wilson. The salon’s stylists offer a full range of services including cutting, colouring, blow waves, foils and hair-ups, catering for all ages and style preferences. They keep up to date with all the latest hair care and styling products from L’Oreal, and have just introduced a brand-new product, Smartbond, to the salon. “We offer this for clients who are having their hair coloured,” says Rebecca. “It works within the hair shaft to strengthen the hair and prevent damage while the hair is being coloured.”

The treatment is optional, and costs $25 per treatment. Clients can also purchase Smartbond conditioner to take home for ongoing treatment. 50 Shades of Fabulous also has the special L’Oreal offer – $83 for a 750ml Vitamino shampoo and 750ml conditioner – a saving of over 50 per cent. “They have great deals like this every six months,” Rebecca says, “and they are only available while stocks last.” With its warm, friendly environment, 50 Shades of Fabulous has become a popular spot with locals, and during the recent Port Hills fires many gathered around the salon while they were out of their homes. During the ordeal the salon was visited by TVNZ journalist Toni Street, who not only reported

Classic fashion the focus at this Halswell store For Rosalie Maxwell, owner/ operator of Maxwells Fashion in Halswell, offering her customers quality fashion garments in classic styles is the key feature to her business. While she does stock some highend fashion, the main focus is on quality fabrics and construction in a mid-price range. “I’m not limited to following the latest fashion trends and colours. I cater for a more mature client base, who want more long-lasting styles,” Rosalie says. The friendly, relaxed atmosphere of Maxwells Fashion means there is no sales pressure, but at the same time Rosalie is happy to offer guidance to her customers when they are trying on garments. “I can also put together a whole outfit for a customer if they want to

just relax in the fitting room.” Knitwear is one of the key features of the store, including a wide selection of merino in lovely shades and a range of prices, so with the cooler weather arriving these are well worth checking out. Customers can take items home on appro, or put them on layby to avoid missing out, Rosalie says. She stocks New Zealand-made garments where possible, though there are also imported labels on the racks. Brands include the very popular Black Pepper, as well as Optimum, Royal Merino, Slade, Equus, Yvonne Black and Piccadilly. “Being an independent retailer I can source my own styles so the stock in my shop is more individual, and I only carry a few of each style. I can also track down specific items for a customer.”

As well, Maxwells Fashion caters for a wide range of sizes, starting from eight and ranging up to 22 and 24 in selected styles. To complement the garments, there is a small range of accessories. With 10 years in the fashion business, Rosalie understands what her customers look for, and stocks Maxwells Fashion accordingly. She looks forward to assisting you find the right classic, quality garments for the autumn and winter season. Maxwells Fashion is located at 17 Lillian Street, Halswell – just off Halswell Road, look for the dairy with the ice-cream cone on the corner, and see new arrivals on Maxwells Fashion Facebook page.

Fendalton Dental Surgery, looking after your dental needs Fendalton Dental Surgery, on the Idris & Glandovey Roads corner has been looking after the dental needs of their local community as well as the wider Christchurch area since 2011. It is operated by Dr Keith Chiang and his highly experienced team who can perform a variety of complex procedures ranging from General & Cosmetic Family Dentistry including Dentures upto more complex work like Wisdom teeth surgery, Implants and Crowns. Dentists Keith Chiang and Zohnia McNeill and Dental Hygienist Amy Lee offer a complete range of dental and oral care services, all in a very calm and relaxed environment. “We listen carefully to what our patients tell us so we can address each of

their dental problems and help them achieve good oral health,” says Keith. A major component of Keith’s work is under IV sedation, which is available for people that are very nervous about visiting the dentist. He has performed more than 2000 Intravenous sedation procedures and the clinic is equipped with the latest advanced equipment for sedation monitoring. He has a special interest in Oral Surgery, Implants and Intra venous sedation. For people with damaged or missing teeth, Zohnia will discuss with them the options of having crowns, permanent implants or dentures fitted, all of which have the added advantage of helping clients regain their functional bite as well as improve their smile and overall confidence. She has a special interest in Cosmetic dentistry, Root Canals and Geriatric dentistry. Her calm approach and special individual attention to detail has helped deal with most common dental issues in her patients. Hygienist Amy specialises in the overall maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. She educates her clients on how to look after their oral health, which if not taken care of can have detrimental effects on their overall health. The gum

Dry mouth or reduced salivary flow, which is caused by certain medications that people take can also lead to gum problems and tooth decay. By visiting the hygienist regularly, gum problems can be prevented, and consequently tooth decay as well as more serious health issues can be avoided.
