Stand up and be counted urge park opponents „„ By Emily O’Connell OPPONENTS TO the Denton Park mega facility plan are urging people to stand up and be counted. THose fighting the park from being used for Hornby’s $35.7 million sport and community centre say public consultation early next year could be their last chance to stop Denton Park being the site for the project. This follows the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board meeting last week, where the reclassification process for Denton Park was approved. In order to build on 9766 sq m of the park, the reserve classification has to change. Save Denton Park group chairman Mark Peters is wanting locals to take a stand for the park in the public consultation process which starts on January 20 and goes until March 24. He also suggested residents should have their say beforehand as well. “We have to fight to keep our local park,” Mr Peters said. Sitting in on the last week’s meeting was the city council’s chief executive officer Karleen Edwards. Mr Peters said it was “intimidating” having her there, but also granted her “credit for showing up.” He said the meeting went better than expected and he was happy he was able to give a deputation to the board. •Turn to page 8

Getting into the spirit for City2Surf

CHRISTMAS MIGHT be right on the radar but there’s another big event looming too – the City2Surf. Yep, it’s only a handful of months away (see page 4) so it’s time to start lacing up those running shoes and pounding the pavement or local park to get in some sort of shape. The great thing about the City2Surf – and this hasn’t changed over the decades – is that anyone regardless of shape or fitness level can take part. A face that will appear on the marketing of City2Surf this year is Jesel Royokada, a Fijian pastor. And remember it’s a family event: Children 10 and under participate for free. Barry Clarke

Pastor Jesel Royokada has asked his congregation of about 80 to get involved in next year’s Star Media City2Surf.

Lieu day decision could be appealed „„ By Emily O’Connell FAST FOOD giant, Wendy’s, may appeal the decision on lieu days. Wendy’s chief executive officer Danielle Lendich told Southern View neither party won in the determination. “The authority member has come up with an alternative interpretation of law which is not based on either parties’ submissions,” she said. But Hornby Wendy’s worker, Rose Williams, thinks she’s definitely won the battle. Ms Lendich has until next Wednesday to appeal the decision. She said they are “currently still interpreting the decision and no decision has been made whether to appeal or not.” Ms Lendich said the outcome will have repercussions for many industries, not just hospitality. Mrs Williams went to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment three years ago with the lieu day issue after she had been working at the Hornby restaurant for a year. Wendy’s, which has 23 outlets in New Zealand, including one in Hereford St and in Hornby, has breached two sections of the Holidays Act 2003. Ms Lendich said they have been using the ‘three week’ rule

SUCCESS: Rose Williams believes she’s won the battle against Wendy’s in spite of its CEO defending the company’s actions. PHOTO: ANDREW KING

to determine who is entitled to alternative holidays. “... a person who works the same day of the week as the public holiday for the three weeks prior to the public holiday and the public holiday itself is due an alternative day,” she said. Ms Lendich issued a notice to all her employees last week, letting them know about the situation. “However the decision does not mean that everyone will be paid an alternative day for working a public holiday,” the letter concluded. Unite Union, of which Mrs

Williams is a delegate, has estimated it would cost Wendy’s $1.6 million to pay back employees’ leiu days. MBIE senior labour inspector Kim Baldwin found Wendy’s breached section 56 and 60 of the Holidays Act. Section 56 says an alternative holiday must be provided to an employee who works on a public holiday if that day would otherwise have been a working day for them. Section 60 sets out how those employees should be paid for the alternative holiday. Wendy’s has been ordered to

comply with the two sections, conduct a review of its restaurants and keep records of staff contacted, rosters and leave. It has been ordered to give all past and present employees from the Hornby and Dunedin restaurants their alternative holidays, or the equivalent pay since the restaurants were opened. Wendy’s has also been ordered to do the same for all other restaurants across the country backdated to July 1, 2012. Ms Lendich said they thought their interpretation of the law was right and it’s incorrect to say Wendy’s employees have not been receiving alternative holidays. But Mrs Williams believes Wendy’s purposely change their employees shifts so they don’t get lieu days. Ms Lendich said laws about pay need to be black and white and the Holidays Act 2003 needs a “total overhaul.” “Politicians should be more aware of the laws they make around these issues and be totally clear on what the law actually is,” she said. But Mrs Williams said the law doesn’t need changing. She told Southern View she’s had a lot of support from coworkers and friends. •Your views, p7

Getting into the spirit of „„ By Andrew King JESEL ROYOKADA embodies everything that is the Star Media City2Surf. Last year he was photographed leaping into the air after crossing the line capturing the spirit of the event. Now, the Christchurch Fijian Seventh-Day Adventist Church pastor has asked his congregation of about 80 to get involved in the event as a way to connect with other cultures. “We come from the islands and sometimes we do things in our own island groups but it is good to get involved with the rest of

the community,” he said. The 31-year-old encouraged about 25 of his parishioners to get involved in the event last year “It was the first time our church has got involved with something like this,” he said. He said they were told about the event by Healthy Families Christchurch, part of a nationwide Government initiative a​ imed at helping New Zealanders live healthy, active lives. “I would like to see all 80 of them out there, and their friends and families. We can even have kids in prams at the event,” he said.

He said they will start to train soon for the event, which will be held on March 18. The event is split into two sections – 6km and 14km. The Star Media City2Surf with Les Mills 14km event starts in Centennial Park, Spreydon, at 9am. The Sport Canterbury 6km event starts at 10am in Hansen Park, Opawa. Both finish at the Ferrymead playing fields. There will be after-event entertainment with live music, food and free children’s entertainment in the finish area. Earlybird entries open online on December 1 and cost $20. They can be purchased from http://www.city2surf.co.nz/ Standard entry from January 1 will cost $25 online or tickets can be purchased from The Athletes Foot, Pak’n Save and New World supermarkets. Children 10 and under are free to participate. •The Star Media City2Surf will be held on March 18. Early bird entries will be available from December 1 at http://www.city2surf. co.nz/

Push for 50m pool at QE II „„ By Sophie Cornish

COMMUNITY: The $4.6 million redevelopment of Addington School is being monitored by pupils

Keeping an eye on new school THE $4.6 million development of Addington School is being monitored by its pupils. Principal Trudy Heath said pupils are meeting with contractors weekly to discuss progress on the school’s rebuild. The donation of additional safety gear, including hard hats and hi-vis vests by main contractor, Watts and Hughes Construction, has allowed the children to be included in site visits to see first-hand how their new building is being created. The development includes new classroom blocks and a conduc-

tive education space, which is expected to be completed by the end of next year. The new classroom section will include five teaching spaces and numerous breakout rooms allowing an opportunity for students and teachers to interact with smaller ratios. Ms Heath said a notable feature of the project is the brand new conductive education space that will cater for children from new entrants through to year 8 with motor disorders and a combination of either high sensory needs, high and complex needs,

high communication needs or visual and hearing impairments. That space is to be constructed with purpose-built high dependency facilities the unit includes toilets, a therapy bath and full sized kitchen. Ms Heath said it’s positive for the community, and a great asset for the children. Further stages of the development include the refurbishment of the Ranginui block of classrooms, the addition of a new library including a whanau space and significant landscaping.

COASTAL-BURWOOD Ward city councillor David East is pushing for the community to “have a conversation” about the possibility of a 50m pool at the new QE II. The call comes after Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration Megan Woods announced a David East U-turn on the proposed Metro Sports Facility, axing the current contractors Leighs Cockram Joint Venture. Dr Woods announced there were ‘considerable issues’ with the plans for the multi-million dollar complex, including a $75 million budget blowout, making the proposed costs more than $321 million. Dr Woods’ spokesman said right now she is focusing on investigating options for the central city. “This includes the possibility of combining the Metro Sports

Facility and the Multi-Use Arena . . . however, we are meeting with the sports codes this week and are keen to listen to any ideas they have.” The facility is planned to include a 10-lane 50m swimming pool, separate diving pool area, five hydroslides, group fitness rooms, high performance sports centre, a cafe, childcare facility and indoor courts with space for nine netball courts. Cr East questions whether a complex that size is needed in the city. “Perhaps it is timely to consider building the 50m pool at QE II . . . the proposed site for metro sports is worse land than QE II and it would seem a quick fix to build the 50m pool at QE II where it was for many years and was well accepted by the city,” said Cr East in a post on Facebook. He claims the cost of adding a 50m pool to QE II would be ‘vastly less’ than a new complex and would leave an indoor sports complex for the city to cater for other sport such as netball.

Your Local Views Encouraging children to value community Halswell Residents’ Association secretary David Hawke talks about the proposed Halswell Skate Parks and what they will mean to the community About two weeks ago there was a news article on how young people in Papanui have been left out by way of recreation facilities where they can socialise on their own terms. The Halswell Residents’ Association has been pushing the same issue in Halswell for 10 years now, and it is tremendous to have the two new skate and recreation facilities at Halswell Domain and Knights Stream within sight. We are fully expecting the city council to complete both facilities well before the end of the council’s financial year in June 2018. As we think about the journey to this point, our key driver has been the need to value our young people within our community.

BENEFIT: David Hawke thinks the proposed Halswell Domain skate park, which is due to be completed in late April, will have a positive impact on the community.

We see the provision of relevant facilities as part of a bigger picture that includes citizenship and community building. As these eight to 12-year-olds grow up, we want them to value the community in which they live and to play their part in decision making. One of the awesome aspects of the Halswell skate park consultation was the active engagement of young people in

the process, to the extent that our association’s role moved to the sidelines. One of the unfortunate

realities of our new Christchurch suburbia is the distance between people socially, technologically and by income. These aspects have made worse the always-present gap between young and old. The Halswell skate and recreation parks, and the consultation process so far, gives us hope that our community can cross these gaps, becoming more trusting and less fearful.

Even though people won’t agree all the time, and some will be upset. The alternative is a community, and political process, driven by low participation, lack of trust, and resentment. We see such a chain of events playing out particularly in the United States, and the consequences are dire for everyone and difficult to reverse.

Grant for St Peter’s raised to $150,000

„„ By Emily O’Connell A $150,000 grant from the city council has pushed St Peter’s Anglican Church closer to restoration. The Upper Riccarton church, which was consecrated in 1858, was damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The grant, from the Capital Endowment Fund, was approved at city council last Thursday. Riccarton Ward city councillor Vicki Buck made an amendment on the $100,000 grant, increasing it to $150,000. “I’d like to see us give more than $100,000. The

loan won’t be helpful as they can’t afford a loan,” she said. Originally, St Peter’s applied for the Heritage Incentive Grant – seeking $500,000 of funding. The application was then deferred as the proposal would have a significant impact on heritage values and key criteria was not met.   Parish reverend Nick Mountfort said they are thrilled with the $150,000 grant. • Donations to St Peter’s Anglican Church can be made at www.stpeterschurch. RESTORATIONS: Rev Nick Mountfort is grateful for the nz/donate-now $150,000 grant towards the restoration of the church. ​

•From page 1 City council staff had strongly advised board chairman Mike Mora not to allow Mr Peters to do so, the reason being because the matter was subject to a hearing. Mr Mora used his discretion to give Mr Peters the opportunity. Mr Peters had previously made a deputation on Denton Park, but said he had new information which he needed to share.

During the presentation, Mr Peters said entering into the reclassification process would be a waste of time and money for the city council as the clubs weren’t going to end their leases. The Hornby Rugby Football Club’s lease runs until 2039 and the Hornby Cricket Club’s lease ends in 2053. Mr Peters said its likely the city council has already made up their mind and they’re only going through with public

consultation so they “show interest.” He said the group definitely want the facility but not on Denton Park. Mr Peters told the board he has been requesting figures from the city council on remediation costs at Kyle Park, but they were unable to provide them. City council operations manager neighbourhood and sports park, Al Hardy, told Southern View garden areas

were fenced off permanently two years ago at Kyle Park as a remediation strategy. “The areas have been mulched to ensure the amenity of the park is retained while containing the risk. The cost of the fencing was $138,237,” he said. Board member Ross McFarlane requested two additional city council resolutions regarding traffic, safety and sports club accommodation to be fast tracked for clarification.

The vehicles were then put to the test and raced around a track at the Christchurch Agricultural Park on Saturday - judges gave points for speed, innovation and creativity. The winners will be announced on the Evolocity website, www.evolocity.co.nz.

ST ANNE’S Catholic School plans to control rats along the Heathcote in a bid to increase the whitebait population. It has become one of 10 schools from around the country to receive a grant to becoming a predator-free school. The award, given out by Kiwibank, came with a $1000 grant to purchase traps and other equipment needed to manage pests in the area and a partnership with Predator Free New Zealand for expertise. More than 70 schools applied for the funding and St Anne’s was the only one from the city to win. One of the pupils made a rat trap box with her father, which

Success for water polo squads SPORTS

Lucia performs beyond her years to take tennis silver „„ By Gordon Findlater CASHMERE TENNIS Club’s Lucia Gale (above) finished second at last week’s South Island primary school tennis finals in Timaru, competing against older opposition. The year 4 pupil competed in the year 6 girls singles and went unbeaten in three pool matches, including a 4-2, 2-4, 4-1 victory over No 1 seed Mya Haigh from Maori Hill School in Dunedin. Lucia lost in the final to No 2 seed Cherry Zhou from St Andrew’s College Preparatory School 1-4, 1-4. The two singles finalists teamed up in the doubles to win the year 6 title. They defeated Mya and Charlotte Byers 6-3 in the final. A week earlier, Lucia won the year 6 and under Canterbury primary school title. She was dominant, not dropping a single game in her three matches leading to the final, in which she defeated Cherry 4-2, 4-2. •More sport, page 15

„„ By Andrew King ST BEDE’S and St Margaret’s were the top water polo squads at the South Island junior secondary schools championships. Competing in Christchurch over three days at both Jellie Park Recreation and Sports Centre and Rangi Ruru Girls’, the St Bede’s year 9/10 side won the division one boys title while St Margaret’s year 9/10 team won the division one girls crown. Christ’s College and St Andrew’s placed second and third in the boys and Marlborough Girls’ and Dunedin’s Columbia College placed second and third in the girls. St Bede’s Patrick O’Neill was named boys most valuable player for the tournament. Coach Cooper Stewart said the team gelled really well especially off the back of Patrick and his brother Sam. “They both are something else. They really stood out in the tournament,” he said. The O’Neill boys are identical twins, which proves difficult for Stewart to tell them apart. “They switch shoes sometime just to mess with us. They are very identical,” he laughed. St Margaret’s Violette Perry was named girls MVP. Director of sport Helen Belcher said the team of young girls will take a lot of confidence away from the tournament win. “There were also some solid performances by the senior members and together as a team

they worked well to sustain pressure against some of the best schools in the South Island,” she said. “We’re looking forward to seeing what these girls can do in our senior teams.” Both schools had three players selected in the tournament team, based on their performances over the three-day event. O’Neill, brother Sam and Sam Rochford were joined by Christ’s Moe Gath, St Andrew’s Lachie Frazer, King’s High’s Josh McGregor and Burnside’s Darius Porter in the boys team. Perry, Josie Persico and Ella Frazer were included in the girls team with Rangi’s Lucy Howden, Columbia’s Emily Peacock, Marlborough’s Georgia Reed and Louise Brown.

SKILL: St Bede’s George Methven looks to link up with a teammate on their way to the boys division one South Island junior secondary school championships title.

Shops bursting with festive gift ideas The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making up the Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you haven’t already done so. Finding those special gifts and stocking fillers as well as the Christmas treats for the table is so easy at our city’s malls and shopping centres, where the shops are bursting with festive merchandise. Every woman likes to receive bodypampering gifts, and there is a huge selection of these priced to suit all budgets at the many pharmacies and gift shops around the city. Perfume is another favourite and again there is a wide selection to choose from, ranging from exciting new releases to the well-known fragrances that have stood the test of time. Lingerie, jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares and decor items – there’s no end to the ideas for the women on the list. The men are equally well catered for, from the sophisticated metro-male boyfriends, to the car-crazy brothers and the DIY

enthusiast and keen gardener husbands and dads. Choose from clothing, books, tools, personal grooming items and gadgets to put a smile on their face on Christmas morning. Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families more joy than seeing the excitement of the children opening their presents. Whether they are delivered by Santa or snuck under the tree by mum and dad, the cuddly toys, games, dolls and building blocks, the candy canes, toy trucks and pretty dresses currently filling the shops will bring squeals of sheer happiness from the smallest family members. The tweens and teens usually have their own ideas about what they want for Christmas, so the gift cards offered by a wide range of retailers are the perfect way to please.

From the courts of Halswell to Hawaii Pacific University „„ By Andrew King HALSWELL resident Lauryn Hippolite has received a scholarship to Hawaii Pacific University to study and play basketball. The 17-year-old moved to Christchurch from Nelson this year to further her basketball skills and found success with the Canterbury Wildcats, which won the championship under coach Lori McDaniel. Lauryn earned a call-up to the New Zealand team which competed in the FIBA under-18 Oceania championship this year. The Mainland Eagles Academy helped her get the scholarship and she will begin her studies in Hawaii in August next year where she plans on majoring in psychology. The academy was set up in 2014 to support players throughout the South Island to chase their dream of pursuing tertiary education and basketball excellence both in New Zealand and the United States. “A scholarship to the [US] is something that I’ve been aiming for for a very long time and to receive one from Hawaii is an exciting experience,” Lauryn said. She said it will be great to travel around the US, learning

TESSA MCCANN is targeting a big year after winning the Canterbury women’s tennis open. The 16-year-old Rangi Ruru student beat Elmwood’s Emily Martin in straight sets 6-3, 6-1 at the Trustpower Tennis Centre at Wilding Park. “I was quite pleased with myself and happy with the result. The wind got a bit tricky later in the day but they were really good games,” she said. Now she is focusing on three upcoming tournaments in January, the under-16 nationals and the under-16 teams’ event, both held in Auckland and an ITF under-18 tournament in

Christchurch. For now, she will focus on the interclub competition where she plays for the Cashmere club. Tessa missed a few interclub games while she ventured overseas to watch her father and coach Neil play in the seniors world individual championships in Miami, United States early last month. He was beaten 6-4, 6-0 in the second round by Chilean Claudio Rojas Trivinos. “He is my inspiration to play tennis and has given me heaps of good tips over the years,” she said. Tessa lives in Ashburton but makes the trip up to Christchurch each week with her mother Tammy to their flat.

New hope for patients suffering from MS, strokes or spinal injuries

Special offer for DeceMBer - if you have suffered a stroke, spinal injury or have MS, then this article is for you.

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other physical and mental health issues, Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment that brings fast, and often immediate results. A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch in 1993. As she continued her research and medical practice, she discovered a reflexology network on the human body, an exciting new discovery that became the foundation of her new treatment – acupuncture without needles. Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt instrument to stimulate the reflexology points on the face or other parts of the body. When the point is stimulated by pressure, a message is sent to the repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan explains, the treatment increases energy, which boosts the body’s healing system. The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but that is a slow process. In addition, many people will start to use their injured part, for example a knee or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore prolonging the injury and even causing chronic pain. With her powerful treatment, results are produced very quickly – even instantly. She likens it to the differences between the power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane – other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

True

reflexology network. It brings fast results because it is a very precise treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people of all ages with many different types of pain in all parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS, and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects. Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s treatment. Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant improvement for muscle weakness and numbness caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan reflexology to see lots of instant results videos. Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology Network, which introduces the treatment and explains how it works. Her website, www. drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes treatment videos, where people who have had the treatment speak about the fast relief it has brought them. Dr Lan is offering 10 patients of stroke, 10 patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168, mobile 027 231 8388.

Ensuring a safe work place Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

1 in 2 people deficient in B12 Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults & as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12. Scientists at Rush University Medical Center found those most deficient in vitamin B12 to have the smallest brain mass & the lowest scores on tests measuring short-term memory, concentration & brain performance. Another study showed that older people with higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains & score higher on cognitive tests than those with lower levels. Yet another recent landmark study showed that B12 supplementation slows the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage & declining cognitive function. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health, regulation of mood & sleep cycles, nerve health & repair, & prevention of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that is known to cause damage & plaque in the blood vessels. It can also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a 34% decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40+ who supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk of

hearing loss in subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12. The reason so many people lack B12 appears to be our body’s ability to absorb it declining with age as the digestive system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication & other drugs further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the mouth & thru bypassing the digestive tract have been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the body.

They are an effective alternative or follow-up treatment to chemically-based ointments.
