Dark sky reserves mooted for areas of city and peninsula „„ By Bridget Rutherford CALLS TO regulate light pollution in parts of Christchurch and Banks Peninsula to establish dark sky reserves have been reignited. The Spreydon-Cashmere Community has asked city council staff to provide advice on whether there are any lighting level controls in the city. Board chairwoman Karolin Potter raised the idea. She said the city council could designate particular areas, such as around Summit Rd, part of the residential red zone, Karolin Potter Halswell Quarry Park, and areas and beaches in Banks Peninsula, as dark sky reserves where no lights could be installed. Those areas had little light pollution at night already, she said. They would be similar to the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve near Tekapo, where artificial light pollution was strictly controlled. It comes as the city council is in the process of converting its street lights to LED technology. Ms Potter said not every street and laneway needed to be lit up, as light bounced off from other

The reserves would benefit the flora and fauna, nocturnal species and star-gazers, she said. “The city has no designated

dark sky places and if we don’t do that soon, then they will all go.” It comes after Emeritus Professor of Astronomy John Hearn-

Pupils first to ride new cycleway

IT’S HARD to believe another year has just about whizzed by. It’s been another 12 months of change – particularly in the media game as the big overseas-owned media groups grapple over how to deliver the news to its consumers, and still stay in business. But the Southern View rolls on, providing good local news and advertising to readers who, in spite of what the big boys might say, still enjoy the feel and touch of a newspaper. But best of all it’s local, and that’s something the Southern View has been doing for a long time. So have a very merry, safe and enjoyable Christmas, and of course a Happy New Year! – Barry Clarke

Linwood Avenue School pupils pedalled their way into history last week when they became the first to ride on the Rapanui-Shag Rock cycleway.

Board leaders sneak back in „„ By Emily O’Connell MIKE MORA and Helen Broughton have survived being overthrown in their roles as chairman and deputy chairwoman of the HalswellHornby-Riccarton Community Board. But they keep their positions because they also cast a vote – for themselves. Four members voted to oust the pair at last week’s board meeting – Riccarton Ward city councillor Vicki Buck, Halswell Ward city councillor Anne Galloway and board members Natalie Bryden and Catherine Chu. But chairman Mora and deputy chairwoman Broughton with supporters Hornby Ward city councillor Jimmy Chen and board members Ross McFarlane and Debbie Mora ensured they scraped back in with a 5-4 majority. The board decided to review the positions a year ago – a decision that Mrs Broughton is calling “very unusual.” Ms Bryden said she voted against the current chairs because sometimes change can be good. She said a few people may have been interested in becoming

Ms Bryden didn’t wish to comment on whether she thinks the chairs have done a good job. Mrs Broughton thought the voting “was slightly unacceptable.” She thought there would be more votes to keep the status quo. Mike Mora said he wasn’t surprised and he was “happy with the result.” Save Denton Park group member Marc Duff believes Mr Mora’s stance on Denton

Park may have affected the vote. “Maybe Mr Mora is paying the price for voting for Kyle Park and speaking out against Denton Park, but he at least showed he can listen to his community,” he said. Mr Mora said anything controversial can cause tension and it’s especially difficult when you don’t get all the information “in a timely fashion.” Mr Mora and Mrs Broughton will remain in their roles until the next local body elections in October 2019.

The board also decided to hold its meetings at a different location next year. Future meetings will be held at the Fendalton Library and Service Centre on Jeffreys Rd. Mrs Broughton said though the centre is out of the ward, she believes the library will provide a better space: “The public can sit and see and hear all the board members,” she said. Mrs Broughton made a resolution to note any concerns from constituents. “It’s not set in stone, but I think it’s worth doing for at least six months.”

LINWOOD LIQUOR BAN Police are calling for a temporary liquor ban around Linwood Village on Stanmore Rd before New Year’s Eve. City councillors will ask staff to urgently look into introducing a permanent ban in the village and Doris Lusk Reserve, with a temporary ban in the meantime. City council staff will also meet with police to discuss the installation of cameras in the area. It comes after concerns over people drinking and littering in the area. TOY LIBRARY NEEDS HOME The Christchurch South Toy Library is looking for a new home as its premises at Spreydon School will be lost when the school closes in April. The Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board has asked city council staff to look into the availability of a space in the area, including Coronation Hall on Domain Tce. LINWOOD POOL OPENING The Linwood Ave community pool at Linwood School will be open from January 4 to Waitangi Day. The school, on the corner of Aldwins Rd and Linwood Ave, has two pools – one 30m-long and the other 18m. Entry will cost $1 for swimmers over five-years-old. A barbecue will be available for the community to use.

Pupils first to ride new cycleway Manveer Bath wins star student award MANVEER Bath (above) is the last Kip McGrath Barrington Star Pupil for the year. He is in year 4 at Halswell School and attends twice a week – once for maths and once for english. In maths, Manveer has been making very pleasing progress. He is working hard to attain the knowledge and strategies he needs and is learning to apply what he learns. He is also doing his best to answer all maths questions in his homework. Manveer is a pleasure to teach. He works quietly and carefully to complete his class tasks and his tutor, Miss Hoggan, enjoys having him in her session and looks forward to Manveer continuing to make great progress next year. Well done Manveer.

LINWOOD AVENUE School pupils pedalled their way into the history books last week when they became the first to ride on the Rapanui-Shag Rock cycleway. The first stage of the cycleway was officially opened on Wednesday morning. It takes cyclists from Linwood Park, through Linwood, into the city centre – a journey of about 2.5km. Eventually the cycleway will stretch as far east as the Ferrymead Bridge, where it will link to the Christchurch Coastal Pathway. For Linwood Avenue School pupils, the opening provided a chance to not only try out the new cycleway, but also a new bicycle. Some of the bicyles the school used for cycle safety training were stolen earlier this year so a few city council staff donated their old bikes to ICEcycles to repair. ICEcycles have already repaired and gifted one to a student for Christmas. The remaining bikes will be distributed to the school early in the new year. “It’s fantastic to see the kids on their bikes and enjoying the new cycleway,’’ said Innes Ward city councillor Pauline Cotter,

become regular users,’’ said Cr Cotter, who officially opened the cycleway with Associate Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter. The city council is building 13 major cycleway routes across Christchurch. Three routes – the Papanui Parallel, the Little River Link and the Uni-Cycle – have been completed or substantially completed. The remaining 10 are in various stages of planning and implementation. In late October and early November, the city council surveyed 625 cyclists who were using the completed routes to gauge their thoughts on the cycleways. Ninety-four per cent of people who answered the survey said they thought the new physically separated cycleways had improved their safety and cycling comfort. Eighty-three per cent stated the new separated cycleways had played a role in encouraging them to make more trips by cycle. Ninety-two per cent of people surveyed said they either strongly agreed or agreed that physically separated cycleways should be installed on routes throughout Christchurch.

She said once they knew what rules were in place, she could progress the idea. City councillor Tim ScanTim Scandrett drett said now was the time to discuss the issue because of the replacement of the street lights to LED technology. “If we look at Tekapo, their lights on the streets focus on an area that needs the light,” he said. “We can be a lot more clever with the light we use.

Call for dark sky reserves

Villa Maria gets pope’s blessing VILLA MARIA College received a surprise message from afar – a blessing from Pope Francis. The papal blessing is thought to be a first for the college in its 100-year history, arriving ahead of the centennial celebrations early next year. Principal Deborah Brosnahan said the blessing is confirmation the school is in line with the pope’s teachings. She said the blessing, which came as a surprise, is a “beautiful item” which means a lot to the school. The original block of land on Peer St was owned by a wealthy Christchurch family – the Wakefields – who named the property “Peerswick” after a race horse named “The Peer.” When the Wakefield’s riches turned to rags, the property was sold. The next family to take over the property built a two-storey house on the land, which they named “St Barbe,” only to suffer a similar financial fate and the home and land had to be sold. After another short period of private ownership, the building and land was eventually purchased by the Sisters of Mercy,

Drama group to premiere Vandals damage romantic Aussie musical $20,000 pool cover „„ By Emily O’Connell THE HALSWELL Drama Group will be the first in the country to premiere an Australian musical written by the brother of a Wiggle. It will be taking the stage with Who Loves Me? in August. The musical is written by Australian singer and songwriter John Field. Halswell Drama Group vicepresident Tim Gunther said they’re “really excited” to perform the musical. He said Mr Field’s brother, Anthony Field, co-founded The Wiggles. Mr Field helped his brother write some of the music for the popular children’s show. Mr Gunther said the Field family are well known in Australia as successful musicians, writers and actors.

Charities give families Xmas to remember

GIVING BACK: City Harvest chief executive John Milligan (left) and organiser Joshua Jackson load groceries for 50 Christmas dinners into their van at South City New World. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

„„ By Emily O’Connell THE Brethren of Lodge Takahe No. 397, The Freemasons Charity and City Harvest are joining forces to help the hungry at Christmas. Together they are providing a Christmas meal to the homes of 50 families across the city. Organiser Joshua Jackson said the idea is to provide families with quality food items to cook a Christmas meal in their own homes. Some of the food was collected from South City New World last week, with other items from the City Harvest food bank. A team packed and distributed half of the dinners to the chosen families’ homes. This week they will collate the remaining packs for delivery. The packages included a frozen chicken, stuffing, gravy, Christmas pudding, Lindt chocolates and fudge. Mr Jackson said the initiative is slightly different because they are giving families luxury items for a Christmas dinner instead

of “just a normal food parcel”. He hopes the Christmas dinners will relieve stress and spread Christmas joy. “It’s my belief that this drive will serve as a pilot to test the feasibility of potentially running a much larger scale project in subsequent years,” Mr Jackson said.

Marian College students entertain rest home residents EVERY YEAR Marian College runs an inquiry-based project with the junior school. In the final weeks of the term, all year 9-10 students were involved in the end-of-year collaborative unit, exploring the theme of beauty. The teachers got together with their students to develop a programme – on an aspect of beauty which interested them – with the end result being a presentation or performance to the whole junior school. House group, Takahe 3, explored “beauty in giving” and “beauty in older generations”. There were nine students and two teachers – Sarah Southen and Yvonne Teague – in the group.

Directions Place the grated carrots in a medium sized serving bowl. Place the grated beets into a sieve and briefly rinse with cold water. This will rinse away a little of the excess beet juice that may otherwise colour the whole salad beet red. Pat dry with a paper towel. Then add to the bowl with the carrots. Add the raisins. Stir to gently combine. In a small bowl, whisk together the paprika, cumin, cinnamon, salt, and cayenne. Then add the lemon juice and honey and whisk until smooth. Drizzle over the carrots and beets, then gently fold until the carrots and beets are lightly coated. Let sit for an hour before serving, either chilled or at room temperature, for the dressing to seep into the carrots and beets. Right before serving, stir in a couple tablespoons of sliced fresh mint leaves. Garnish with fresh mint.

School sends capsule into future ON THE eve of Villa Maria College’s 100th birthday, students have been working on a very forward-thinking project – a time capsule to be opened in 2068. Teacher Mikaela Hood has been working with her students to decide what items should be included in the capsule. “Two year 12 history classes were studying historical sources and as part of their learning look into different time capsules around the world and consider what and how historians Mikaela could use these Hood sources,” Ms Hood said. She said the idea of the college creating a time capsule evolved from this. Year 9 social studies classes have been involved in collecting the items to be included. Year 9E photographed the school, collected artefacts and asked principal Deborah Brosnahan to write a letter to the school’s future principal. Year 9G wrote letters discussing school life and their experiences at the college.

  FLAME FILES

Fire risk columnist bids farewell „„ By Mark Thomas – fire risk management officer THIS IS the last flame files. After nearly 11 years back in Christchurch and 518 columns completed, I’ve decided it’s time to shuffle off into retirement. The column has been something I’ve always enjoyed. Sometimes the time available has been too short for comfort and some other times I’ve had

a good subject and time to do it justice. I can only hope it’s been entertaining to some and even occasionally informative. I know the issues haven’t really changed. There are still too many kitchen fires. There are still too many arson fires. But in recent years, the number of fire fatalities has fallen. This must in part be the result

of our promotion of smoke alarms and I still live in hope of the day none of us will agree to sleep anywhere that is not alarm covered. Another quite satisfying part of this job has been the public speaking. I’ve talked to older people, young people, service groups and even prisoners in jail. Some of the most satisfying feedback I ever got was being told all of the group I had spoken to at Christchurch

Women’s Prison later used their phone privileges to ring home to ensure the family was protected by smoke alarms. Finally, sincere thanks are due to Star Media for providing me with the platform to preach the fire safety message. That’s a true public service and is very much appreciated. I’ve been fortunate with the calibre of people I’ve worked with, both in the firefighting family and those outside. Stay safe everyone.

STAY SAFE: A group of prisoners Mark Thomas spoke to at Christchurch Women’s Prison later used their phone privileges to ring home to ensure their families were protected by smoke alarms.

Festive Season Survival Tips

ks are y snac Health

C

hristmas is a time for celebration, spending time with friends and family and enjoying festive foods and drinks. Nutrition-wise, this festive fare can be a challenge. Here are some simple tips to help you survive the festivities: • Don’t try to lose weight over the festive season. With parties, families and all the special foods that go with Christmas, it’s going to be just about impossible! Your main aim should be to maintain your weight (using some of the tips below!) • Eat regular meals. If you skip meals you are more likely to fill up on high fat snacks. It only takes a few of these snacks to add up to more calories than your usual meal. • Avoid going to a function hungry, you can easily eat a lot of party food in a short

lar

Be aware of how much you are actually drinking

time. Have a small snack beforehand like a bowl of cereal, yoghurt or a sandwich are quick and will help fill you up. It will also help if you are well hydrated, so try drinking a few glasses of water before you arrive. • Deep fried foods, crumbed and battered foods, cheese platter and nuts are all high in fat. Choose fruit, vegetable or bread based snacks. • If you are hosting the party, offer your guests a range of healthy snacks. Always popular are hummus or salsa dips with vegetable sticks. • If you are taking a plate, make yours a healthy option. How about a platter of fruit currently in season? • Listen to your body and stop eating when you feel full. • Just say ‘No” to food – mentally

practice strategies to decline food offers. For example: “It looks amazing but I am full” or “I tried it and it was great”. • Chat and mingle. If you are bored at a party you’re more likely to hover around the food table or seek out the serving platter. A good conversation can distract you from the food. Avoid standing right beside the food table or bar while you’re talking. • Consider your drinks, they can add to the calorie count very quickly. Try diluting your alcoholic drinks, such as a spritzer (½ wine, ½ soda). If you prefer spirits, try a diet mixer. Lite beers are lower in calories and alcohol. Remember soft drinks, juices, punches, tonic water and flavoured mineral water can all have similar calories to alcoholic drinks. •Be aware of how much you are actually

True

drinking. Alternate alcoholic drinks with glasses of water and non-alcoholic choices. • Keep active. Join in the Christmas backyard cricket game or go for a walk with friends or relatives. Remember you’re aiming for 30 minutes of physical activity each day. • If your regular exercise class stops over the Christmas break, plan other types of exercise - organise your friends and put a date in your diary. If you do really overdo the festive foods or drinks, take a deep breath and start the next day afresh with healthy foods and some exercise. No fasting - just sensible eating. Remember, a few parties don’t make you overweight, it’s what you do all the other days of the year which count.
