Let’s get the eastern arsonists COMMUNITY action could help solve a spate of eastern suburbs arson attacks, according to Fire Service Christchurch area commander Jon Graham. The series of arson attacks over the past three weekends razed the landmark 52-year-old Leander Building at Kerrs Reach in Avonside Drive and damaged Aranui High School, Avondale Primary and Aranui Kids First Kindergarten. The attacks stepped up a notch at the weekend with seven fires lit in the early hours of Saturday morning in Aldershot and Portsmouth streets and Ben Rarere Avenue in Aranui. Four of the fires were lit at properties and at

two of the properties people were asleep inside their houses at the time. The residents escaped uninjured but the escalation in the arson attacks had alarmed Mr Graham. “We’re very concerned that these attacks are creeping into properties while residents are asleep. “It’s gone too far and needs to be stopped.” Mr Graham hoped Wainoni and Avonside residents would be able to provide further information. “People are our eyes and ears and even a small detail such as seeing an unfamiliar person in their street could provide a breakthrough.

even in those areas with large sections of empty houses. “If someone calls the fire service we will aim to be there within six minutes so we are still very much a part of eastern Christchurch.” Mr Graham said the fire service was still carrying out an ongoing investigation into the arson attacks in conjunction with the police. “We are analysing the scenes of the fires and the results will contribute to the investigation.” If anyone has any information regarding the arson attacks or has noticed any suspicious activity in the Wainoni, Aranui or Avonside areas please contact the Christchurch central police on 363 7400.

“Something that seems insignificant be very important so I would encourage people in the area to report anything suspicious.” Overgrown vegetation and abandoned houses in the eastern suburbs provided fuel for arson attacks and Mr Graham said residents needed to monitor vegetation growth. “People need to be aware that even if they don’t live in their house anymore if they still own the property they are responsible for keeping vegetation under control. “If the property is owned by Cera then the council will take care of the vegetation.” Mr Graham said the fire service still had a very active presence in the eastern suburbs,

DEVELOPERS of a large $145 million shopping centre in northern Christchurch are disappointed the retail area of their complex will now have to be cut in size. Calder Developments spokesman Ian Calderwood said it was the call by the Environment Court judge recently to restrict retail space within the 45,000 square metres proposed Styx Centre to 20,000sqm and they felt let down. The judge ruled that by restricting retail size in the suburbs it would assist the central city’s rebuild. “That’s hard to understand since we’re a long way from the CBD,” Mr Calderwood said. “The wide consensus is that greater development is required in the north and we

were identified as being key to that. “What was planned was not a mall but a pavilion with main street parking.” Calder Developments applied to build 35,000sqm of retail space and 10,000sqm of commercial space. The Environment Court has agreed to a 45,000sqm complex but 25,000sqm of it would have to be commercial space. Mr Calderwood said the company would continue with their plans. “We have now probably spent five years working through the issues; we’ve worked cooperatively with all the locals.” The proposed complex would be on nine hectares of land next to the Northwood Supa Centre.

Russley Rd work delay frustrates residents Tom Doudney

AVONHEAD residents say their patience has been worn thin over the severe traffic congestion and the slow pace of road works on Russley Road. The road is being upgraded to four lanes as part of New Zealand Transport Agency’s (NZTA) project to create an 80km bypass between Belfast and Hornby. Work on Russley Rd began in December 2010 and since then contractors have spent 18 months completing 1.6 kilometres of road from Yaldhurst Rd to Pyne Gould Stream. Work on the next section, from Pyne Gould Stream to Avonhead Rd, is expected to begin soon. Russley Rd resident David Wilson, as well as Errol and Kathryn Smith who live nearby, told Mainland Press it was unacceptable that such severe traffic congestion had been allowed to continue for so long on a road used by 31,000 cars a day. As well as being a major inconvenience, with traffic being bumper to bumper for several hours in the mornings and afternoons, the issue was

also a safety concern. NZTA southern regional director Jim Harland said the project was on schedule for completion in mid-2013 and not taking an unusually long time for a project of its size and complexity. “We appreciate the road works from Yaldhurst Rd to Avonhead Rd are frustrating for residents and business in the area, but they are on Fed up: Errol Smith, left, and David Wilson say traffic congestion on Russley Rd is both hugely inconvenient and a safety concern. schedule,” he said. Work on the next section would be completed on one side of the road at a time, starting with the BOOK OF THE WEEK city side, to allow Russley Rd traffic to continue Floating Gold Christopher Kemp $29.99 using the other side of the road. Mr Harland reiterated NZTA’s previous Christopher Kemp travels from the shores of NZ, to statement that ongoing land negotiations with the Smithsonian and New Nedford Whaling museum; Christchurch International Airport had not held he meets amateurs, professional hunters, scientists, up the start of work on the next section.

Snow stops the mail getting through Tom Doudney

RAIN, hail or snow, the mail must get through – or so they say. Last week, however, postal services, both delivery and over the counter, ground to a halt as the region was blanketed in snow. Services shut down completely from Wednesday morning and although PostShops opened again on Thursday, staffing was minimal, leading to long queues in some places. NZ Post spokesperson John Tulloch said that several factors had influenced the shutdown of services on Wednesday, including police advice against non-essential travel, the cancellation of bus services impacting staff’s ability to travel, and the closure of schools affecting staff with children. Additionally, PostShops were not getting many customers. Mr Tulloch said all PostShops had opened at 10am on Thursday but staff numbers had been limited by availability under the circumstances. “That was a combination of public transport 1 4/12/2012 2:45:17 PM [being Beauty_Pricelist_Front_Final.pdf limited] and advice from police about when to travel. Schools were still closed, which

impacted on the number of staff who could make it to work.” Mail delivery did not take place on Wednesday or Thursday because of the conditions and the cancellation of flights into Christchurch International Airport meant that some mail did not even get into the city for processing. Mr Tulloch said the main reason for cancelling delivery had been the road conditions, which were “treacherous at best”. “We just didn’t put posties out on snow-laden or icy grounds, it’s incredibly dangerous and safety of our staff is paramount - it just wasn’t feasible.” Limited deliveries resumed on Friday with businesses and areas where it was safer to travel receiving priority. “We’re very, very conscious of customers and businesses as well,” Mr Tulloch said. “For commerce it is important to keep mail moving but if you initially can’t get vehicles and people on the ground to operate there’s not much you can do about that. As soon as we could, we have got back out there.”

Hagley Park I fully support Lee Germon’s vision for the Hagley Oval (Mainland Press, June 7) as an international test cricket ground. With raised banks, suitable pavilion, upgraded pitch, etc., along with a beautiful setting, it will be a wonderful place to play and watch cricket, rather than the usual concrete jungle. To those Luddites who object, why don’t they remove the ugly tar-sealed, netball courts which ruin the look of Hagley Park on the south-east corner and create a nightmare every weekend for traffic and car parking? Netball should be moved to Addington, which is not a green area. Good on Lee Germon, Bob Parker and those with vision. All others, including “the Lynch mob”, should move to Australia or the North Island. The Hagley Oval area has always been reserved for cricket and its improvement will encourage more use of our beautiful park. Ron Williams Northwood

THURSDAY June 14 2012

Save Hagley Park - will there be a protest march at all? I will be there, along with most of Christchurch. I can think of no better way to illustrate to our councillors how passionate the people of this fair city feel about Hagley Park. Bridget Dadds Mt Pleasant If there was a referendum for the general public, I am sure the majority would say “develop QEII!” as an international cricket venue. The oval was creating a distinctive cricket feel about it with its lovely picket fences, oldworld charm pavilion, all-round embankment, immaculately maintained pitch and billiard table outfield. With a little thought, some comfortable, modern, custom-designed containers could be strategically placed to house the commentators, scorers and TV broadcast positions. The infrastructure is virtually there now. What are our options? Rangiora: A marvellous ground that should be retained for local and provincial games. Lincoln: How about making this the home for local, provincial and international women’s cricket? Give them a real sense of belonging as a reward for the tremendous entertainment and results they churn out year after year. Hagley Park: Leave for local club cricket. Having played there for many years, it has the right ambience for fully enjoying your local club cricket. St Albans have been there for 108 years! The Hagley Park cricket area is ideally suited for spectators who often wander the perimeter looking at other games and perhaps snooze off with a book under the trees. Dear Christchurch City Council, be smart and pro-active and look beyond the dollar. Create yourselves a legacy before you get voted off the council and create new life in a dying eastern suburb. Better still, why not try giving the people what they want!

I am adding my five cents to the burgeoning vocal response regarding the possible development of Hagley Oval. Hagley Park is sacred. It is the soul of our city, more so than the Cathedral in my view. You can dress it up any way you like, but the fact remains as soon as you open the door to commercialisation (albeit whatever form), you are at the mercy of future onerous decisions. It is a slope too slippery to risk. Who’s to say that the city councillors in later years will be as robust and upstanding as the councillors of today? I would suggest that to future proof the park in the state it is now, let’s put a moratorium on it. No development, no arguments, no exceptions (Jim would do well to campaign on that). Lee Germon, please stop wasting our city councillors’ time and energy. Accept what the clear majority of Christchurch ratepayers have Frank N Overend expressed and focus on finding a different Kaiapoi venue.

We are opposed to any proposal to build a cricket oval or any other structure in Hagley Park. Ken and Cynthia Henderson Westmorland I hope those people spearheading opposition to using Hagley Park for any sports are successful. For goodness’ sake keep the council’s and sports bodies hands off the park. We walk around it regularly and it needs to stay just as it is. It is an amazing asset for the city.

Suicide support

in Immigration New Zealand). About the suicide rate in New Zealand, which I think is the result of severe depression in some individuals, the reason I can figure out about this issue partly depends on the geographic isolation of the country, but also on the individualistic society, relatively high social welfare systems, lack of life-threatening challenges in life and other reasons that I might have missed. My suggestion is there should be a mechanism to involve people under social welfare systems in some public activities in return for the money they get from the Government. This can both help to keep them motivated and also competitive, which can primarily reduce tendency towards depression. Such an activity should be based on the individual’s specialty, which can tremendously help the individual’s self-esteem and usefulness to him/herself and to the society. Therefore, there should be a bit more careful process to study the individuals when they apply for social benefit rather than just hand out ready money for them. This can keep the individual in society (involving with other people, having friends) and also empower them to get ready for the competitive job market. The best help in my view for a depressed person is to remind him/her that he/she still has so many skills to offer that other people, or our environment, desperately need.

I saw an article in your Thursday, June 7, 2012, issue about suicide victim families and I would like to comment. I am a foreign student here in New Zealand, so I might not be completely right in understanding the social issues of this country.

Press the screen …… follow the instructions For the first time since before the February 22 earthquake of last year I went to a library. It was soon apparent something had changed: Fewer librarians, fewer books and then people standing waiting to interface with a machine. Book-issuing machines have now hit our libraries in greater numbers. Selfhelp at work. Press the screen, follow instructions, bar code up – zip, zap the books are issued, out pops the receipt and you’re on your way. All very slick, smooth, effective, no doubt economic … and horribly impersonal. Airports and supermarkets have started to do it, now libraries are on the way too – machines instead of people. Speaking of machines, the All Blacks were certainly machine-like in their crunching Ireland in Auckland last Saturday and should again prove too strong for the boys in green at AMI Stadium on Saturday. It’s great to have international rugby back in the city after the terrible events of last year and

after the World Cup matches were taken off us. Nearly two years have passed since we last had a test. With the foul weather we’ve had in recent days the Canterbury Rugby Union must now have a stronger case for getting a covered stadium for the city. Finally, we had a strong response to last week’s story on the lack of support for families left behind after a loved one takes their own life. People have offered support and encouragement to Lucy, the woman who lost her son two months ago. Hopefully a support group will grow from this. One woman’s email to us was particularly poignant. “I have dealt with two suicides in my life,” she wrote, “the most horrific being my partner of seven years shooting himself in the head in front of me. I agree there needs to be a group for the survivors. I had a look around and found nothing. It is still a day to day thing to get through and would be good to talk to others that know the feeling. Thank you.”

Hub opposed; test cricket still possible Chris Tobin MOST Christchurch city councillors seem opposed to developing a sports hub on Hagley Park but their support or otherwise of an international cricket venue in the park is more uncertain. Mainland Press asked the Christchurch City Council what their views were on the future use of Hagley Park: Whether they agreed/disagreed to a proposal by Canterbury Cricket to develop Hagley Oval into an international cricket venue with new floodlights, an embankment and new pavilion; also whether they agreed to the current upgrade of the existing wicket and finally if they supported a sports hub on the park. Here are their responses:

Mayor Bob Parker There are two parts. The upgrade of the ground was approved in 2009 and what is happening there now is part of that. The next part is Canterbury Cricket would like a good test venue. I think it would be wonderful to see a test there but it can’t be at the expense of people enjoying Hagley Park. There is a resource consent process to go through and there’s still information to come. I think it could work but it can’t if there are permanent significant changes and Canterbury Cricket is aware of that. I’ve got an open mind on it. As far as a sports hub at the park, I am not aware of any plans. Deputy Mayor Ngaire Button Development of the Oval doesn’t involve big structures and changes. Cricket has been played there for years – there’s just a replacement of the pavilion, which is likely to be the same height; I haven’t got a problem with the embankment but the floodlights could be a sticking point. I need to see the details but we need to have an international cricket oval in Christchurch, whether it’s Hagley Park or somewhere else, the decision still has to be made. A sports hub on Hagley Park is a ridiculous suggestion. I would like to put it on the old Addington salesyards.

Helen Broughton Totally opposed to developing the Oval into an international cricket venue. Only two councillors, Yani and I, voted against this in June 2010. I was surprised at the time there was not more opposition at the council table. This was the previous council. I was opposed then and am still resolutely opposed. Plans to upgrade the existing wicket have not been put in front of us. On enquiry I have been told this development fits within the City Plan. I have been advised there will be resource consent for the (international venue development) plan. Canterbury Cricket is responsible for lodging resource consents. Absolutely opposed to a sports hub at Hagley Park. Morally and legally wrong.

Peter Beck The council will be hearing more about and discussing Canterbury Cricket proposals at a workshop this week. Unless I am persuaded otherwise through this discussion, the only other improvement that I support is the regular repair and maintenance that is needed to ensure that the Oval provides what it has always done for the cricket community and the citizens of Christchurch. On the rare occasion that cricket might be hosting a match [e.g. 20/20], which would draw a really substantial crowd, then to my mind they could apply to the council for whatever is required to enable them to erect Yani Johanson temporary seats and fencing, etc. [in the same I voted against this way for instance that the Ellerslie Flower when it was originally Show uses the park for a temporary event]. I put into council’s would not support any suggestion that could long-term plan as mean that the Oval is closed off to the public. I felt concerned I support the idea of enhancing the wicket at the increasing itself to meet international standards. It is a commercialisation fantastic environment to enjoy a test match. I of Hagley Park for international test matches that would seldom do not support a sports hub in Hagley Park. be held in Christchurch and when so, lacking in attendance. I felt the money could be better Sally Buck The upgrades to spent on other things when there are other suitable venues in the city that would be fine. the cricket ground in I do not agree with Canterbury Cricket’s plans the annual plan have to upgrade the existing wicket at Hagley Oval. been in the long term As far as a possible sports hub on Hagley plan since 2009 and Park, currently, consulting as part of the draft involve upgrading the annual plan is being held so I will decide once turf and fixing some Anything I have heard all the submissions.

Continued from page 5 Jamie Gough I would be severely worried about any councillor who did not support the due reinvestment and maintenance of a prime community green space. I would struggle to support something which took away from the natural beauty and open-natured feel of Hagley Park. I don’t believe there is a desire for this to occur, though, and I’m unsure whether the extent of the misinformation circulating around about it is actually rather humorous or just quite sad. The upgrade of the existing wicket is timely and although it is not proposed, if anything such as obscene structures or miniature stadiums were to be mooted, which

would butcher the integrity of this important space, it would not only be strongly opposed by myself and fellow citizens but would also be required to go through a robust RMA (Resource Management Act) process. I would be highly vocal and strongly opposed to a sports hub on the park. Jimmy Chen I oppose Canterbury Cricket’s proposal. My concern is that it will be a commercial activity in a public park. They give the players high salaries and now they want a public park for their facility. I was not part of the council which approved upgrade work on the wicket. I don’t think this was the right decision. I’m absolutely against a sports hub on Hagley Park. Maybe they should do it at QEII.

Glenn Livingstone I disagree with Canterbury Cricket’s proposal. In my view, the installation of lighting, a new pavilion and an embankment in time for the 2015 World Cup would be the thin end of the wedge in terms of intrusion. For instance, would not an electronic replay screen be required by the ICC? What other requirements will be called for by the ICC and expected as givens for the game at World Cup level? For the community, Hagley Park is a central touchstone and one which the people of Christchurch would like to remain, substantially, untouched. If upgrading the existing wicket at Hagley Oval effectively means local clubs losing their own wickets, I do not agree. I do not think a sporting hub should be established at Hagley Park, for the reasons of intrusion as outlined in my first point. Lee Germon confirmed that negotiations between New Zealand and Australia over hosting rights were not settled yet, in response to a question I asked during his annual plan submission. Claudia Reid Council agreed to support Canterbury Cricket’s proposal to ‘develop’ Hagley Oval for first-class and test cricket almost three years ago now, when it settled on its 2009-19 LTCCP. I supported the council position then. It required the support and agreement of the cricket clubs that already use the Oval, that they were prepared to make way if necessary; it was on the basis of minor and natural modification to the ground, and of course it went through a special consultative process with the wider Christchurch community. The Oval makes a beautiful intimate setting for cricket. The proposal before us now is to add lights

Barry Corbett I haven’t seen the full plans and cannot really comment until I do. I would like to see Hagley Oval used more than it is currently. I agree to the upgrade of the existing wicket. I don’t think a sports hub should be established on Hagley Park. Aaron Keown These questions are premature as the current upgrade is drainage and irrigation and pitch. All the other plans are subject to an RMA process. I understand cricket has been played at this site since 1866 and to progress to hosting a handful of international matches seems to be a natural progression for the park. It would be sad to have nothing in Hagley Park except for open space surrounded by trees. Cricket amongst every other sport in the park creates a very healthy atmosphere. I think the image of a camera panning up from the Hagley Oval to reveal the jewel of the garden city is a very powerful ad for the city. Sue Wells and Tim Carter did not respond by print time.

but no grandstands or other interventions, to enable Christchurch to host some of the 2015 Cricket World Cup matches and the popular T20 matches, too. It would be a tremendous boost for us all if Christchurch was in a position to host and accept these games in three years’ time. So long as there is a way for the amenity effects of these lights to be minimised, I would support that. The upgrading of the existing oval wicket is merely drainage improvement, there is nothing untoward involved. No, I don’t support a sporting hub at Hagley Park.

Wintry blast comes early

9

CHRISTCHURCH shivered under a blanket of snow last week. The first fall of the year began early on Wednesday, continuing steadily until mid-evening. Roads became treacherous on Thursday as sub-zero overnight temperatures turned snow to ice. Mild, sunny conditions from midmorning began the thaw, enticing people outdoors for sightseeing and frosty fun. Seen around the city... Icy grip: The scene at Christchurch Airport last Thursday morning. Due to the conditions, Hagglunds (Antarctic transport vehicles) from the nearby Antarctic Centre were pressed into use for ferrying airport staff between the terminal and their cars during the early hours.

Intrepid snowboarder: Dexter Marsh put on an impromptu display in Victoria Park. Watching his airborne antics are Jared Crawford, Jonty Holmes and Jack Carpenter.

In a jubilant mood: Mozart, the cairn terrier, romps in the snow beside a snow statue of HM the Queen in Cashmere.

h

Too cold for comfort: A cheetah at Orana Wildlife Park shudders in the snow. Park chief executive Lynn Anderson said the snow storm resulted in significant, widespread damage, especially to the park’s dangerous carnivore fences. “We have major damage to the lion and tiger fences. The animals are completely secure within their buildings and will not be let into display exhibits until the damage is repaired. Other damage was caused by a large power spike which burnt out switchboards and circuit breakers in numerous locations around the zoo.” informatio

More mobile library services for city CHRISTCHURCH residents will have more access to library services with two new mobile vans set to begin operating by October. The vans will help fill the gap left in library services after the earthquakes forced the closure of Bishopdale, Central, Linwood and Sumner libraries. The smaller vans will be able to service parts of the city that the existing mobile library bus has been unable to reach. Mayor Bob Parker said the vans funded by Rotary International would be a welcome addition to the library fleet. “This is another opportunity to reduce community isolation and increase participation, and we’re all very grateful to the sponsors for their generosity.”

Great NEW GAMES designed in New Zealand

Canterbury students’ keen eye for spelling The Rangi Ruru Girl’s School year 7 and 8 spelling quiz team showed Canterbury that their words were not to be messed with at the 2012 Otago Daily Times Extra! spelling quiz. The team, made up of Petra Law, Jocelyn Bradley and Ashleigh Goh, scored 100 percent during the quiz at Chisnallwood Intermediate last week. Heaton Intermediate 1 came second with 97 out of 100 words correct and Cathedral Grammar

1 and Chisnallwood Intermediate 4 came thirdequal with 96 words. Merrin Primary School’s team of Eric Song, Robert Pryor and Harry Sharpe took out the year 5 and 6 title after a play-off with Fendalton Primary 2 when they both scored 95 out of 100. Sumner 1 and Fendalton 1 tied with a score of 93. A total of 100 teams participated in the 10-round quiz.

Resources for migrant communities A SERIES of resources aimed at helping people develop and maintain mental wellness has been translated into six languages for refugee and new migrant communities in Christchurch. The Mental Health Foundation’s five winning ways to wellbeing resources have been translated into Nepali, Chinese, Farsi, Somali, Amharic (from the Horn of Africa) and Arabic. They will be officially launched at the Christchurch Migrant Centre on June 22. The winning ways are: connect (building relationships means support is available when needed), be active (exercising makes you feel good), take notice (being present and noticing in the moment), keep learning (it gives you confidence and keeps the mind active) and give (even a small gesture is incredibly rewarding). Mental Health Foundation chief executive Judi Clements said refugee and migrant

communities were already vulnerable due to past experiences. “The earthquakes in the city in September 2010 and February 2011 challenged everyone’s resilience. The winning ways resources will help them flourish,” she said. The posters and postcards were first released in English by the Mental Health Foundation after the September earthquake. “I think, after the earthquakes, everyone needs to see these messages in their own language. That validates them as being part of the community to see something that is relevant to them and their needs,” Ms Clements said. A health sub-group of Christchurch’s Refugee and New Migrant Forum worked with the Mental Health Foundation to translate the resources, which will be distributed by Partnership Health Canterbury. People can also download them from the Mental Health Foundation’s website.

DREAM DOORS

Advertising Feature

Making your dream kitchen affordable H ave you thought about doing up your kitchen but can’t afford the hefty price tag? Your dream kitchen could be less expensive than you think with a facelift from Dream Doors. Adrian and Tammy Kay have recently opened the Christchurch branch of Dream Doors, a nationwide company that was started in the United Kingdom, and specialises in kitchen facelifts including door and drawer front replacements, cabinetry, handles, new bench surfaces and also a range of new kitchen appliances and lighting solutions. Dream Doors can replace door and drawer fronts and benchtops, as invariably the cabinetry is in perfect condition, giving you the look of a brand new kitchen at a fraction of the cost to put in a new kitchen. They have dozens of the latest door designs and hundreds of colours and designs to suit all tastes and styles. The great news about a facelift is that they can be completed in just a day so there’s minimal disruption to the homeowner, says Adrian. Dream Doors also offer a full range of benchtops, including Formica, acrylic, timber, stainless steel, engineered stone and some very affordable granite options for those on a budget. Adrian and Tammy can also help with complete kitchen rebuilds or new builds, bathroom joinery and bedroom cupboard doors, making them a great place to start

when you’re thinking about updating your home. Adrian and Tammy have found that homeowners who have had their houses fixed by EQC find that their kitchens now look drab and tired-looking so a facelift is the perfect affordable solution to bring it up-to-date. To help make your decisions easier, Dream Doors’ website (www.dreamdoors. co.nz) has 3D virtual reality software where homeowners can design their own kitchen. Customers can select the style and colour of the cupboard door online so they can see what combinations work best. There is also an online ordering and quoting service for people living out of Christchurch. Adrian and Tammy are more than happy to chat with clients about what they would like and are dedicated to finding a kitchen solution to suit their needs and fit in with the rest of their home. “We are not here to sell you a kitchen, we are here to help you buy one.” Professional cabinet makers and joiners will ensure a professional finish and the majority of Dream Doors’ range is locally made in Christchurch. All doors and drawers are fitted with soft close fittings as standard and joinery comes with a 10-year guarantee. For more information about Dream Doors, visit dreamdoors.co.nz or phone Adrian or Tammy on 03 338 1081 or email adrian@ dreamdoors.co.nz.

Historic Canterbury Club reopens THE historic Canterbury Club has reopened after 15 months following the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The building on the corner of Cambridge Terrace and Worcester Street, built in 1872, has undergone a $4 million rebuild and restoration over the past 10 months to bring it back to its former glory and up to 100 percent of the earthquake building code. It had received quake strengthening in 2007, which was a major factor in it surviving the February quake. An official opening cocktail function was held last Friday, attended by Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee. Canterbury Club president Dr Brent Stanley

said it was now one of the standout buildings of historical significance in the area, which made its restoration and reopening even more special. The restoration was funded from insurance, a significant investment from the Club and a grant from the Canterbury Earthquake Heritage Buildings Fund. The Canterbury Club was formed when Christchurch had a population of only 5347, as a place where men who were involved in the business of the city could meet. It now caters for men and women, primarily from the professional and business sectors, and includes a fitness centre, accommodation and restaurant.

HUNDREDS of people brushed off the snow and went orienteering in Hagley Park last Sunday. The event was a fundraiser to help local juniors Ryan Batin and Selena Metherell get to the Junior World Orienteering Champs being held in Slovakia next month. Organisers were delighted with the turnout, which was about three times greater than expected. “It was fantastic to use council facilities so soon after the snow, and people just kept

arriving. “Many said they’d read about the event in the Mainland Press,” event supporter Michelle Metherell said. “Most were orienteering for the first time and were intrigued by the maze. We had kiddies in buggies, retired people, even folk just out for a walk came over and went out with a map to try out our courses.” Ryan and Selena had hoped to raise about $200 to $300 each. Instead they raised almost $1800 towards their trip.

Cashmere, Stmartins, Hillsborough, Barrington, Sydenham, Cracroft, Westmorland, Halswell, Beckenham

Land sale questioned Samantha Early

RICCARTON Wigram Community Board chairperson Mike Mora is preparing to challenge the process that led to the Christchurch City Council agreeing to sell a large block of land in Hornby to a non-profit consortium. The consortium proposes building a housing complex for low to medium-income residents. Mr Mora said he was very disappointed at the council’s decision to sell the large site at Goulding Avenue to the consortium for $525,000, which was well below the land’s market value of $1,323,000. The consortium involves Aucklandbased charity the New Zealand Housing Foundation, which aims to deliver affordable home ownership for low-income households, Abbeyfield New Zealand, which develops flatting situations for independent socially isolated people, the Housing Plus Charitable Foundation, which is an extension of the Beckenham Community Housing Trust that currently provides housing in a supported environment, and the Salvation Army, which would provide rental housing to quakeaffected families. The sale is subject to several conditions including the consortium receiving funding from the Government and Canterbury Community Trust and building on the 42unit complex, of which nine houses would be affordable ownership homes, 11 units supported group housing, 11 units supported social housing and 10 social housing rental units, starting by June next year. Council staff had recommended the council build its own 35-unit social housing complex on the site. Mr Mora said the council needed to build its

own housing to replace its 380 earthquakedamaged units and address its 227-strong waiting list, of which 88 are considered urgent. He said the council’s social housing rents averaged at about half the market rates but the consortium’s development proposed rents of about 80 to 90 percent of market rates. “In my mind that’s not addressing the needs of the most vulnerable, it’s addressing the needs of people who are in a lot better position, I believe, to look elsewhere” He said some of the units in the proposed development could be on-sold. Preference: Riccarton Wigram Community Board chairman Mike Mora believes it should be the “Why should the ratepayer of Christchurch Christchurch City Council, not a non-profit consortium, building social housing units on this site in Hornby, Photo: Samantha Early heavily subsidise a section for someone who which is next to the council’s current Hornby Courts units. only lives there for six to eight months then can on-sell it to someone else? That’s not social housing in my mind.” Mr Mora said the council would have been able to build new units sooner and his next move was to challenge the process of how the proposal got to the council without going through the community board first. City councillor Glenn Livingstone said he was excited about the opportunity the council had been given to work with the consortium. “The proposed complex will include • Made on premises daily social housing units but it will also • Famous sausage rolls and pies offer more affordable home ownership • Toasted bagels and paninis to people who would not otherwise • Vivace Coffee be able to afford their own homes.” Mayor Bob Parker said it was a win-win situation for the council and residents.

CHRISTCHURCH’S two roller derby leagues are sending their best to face off against each other in public for the first time. The Dead End Derby All Star team will take on rival league Otautahi Roller Derby’s All Stars at Pioneer Stadium this Saturday night in an event they’re calling the Garden City Turf War. The event starts at 6pm with a ‘Graduation Bout’ featuring some of Christchurch’s newest ‘fresh-meat’ skaters and will be followed by the feature bout at 8pm to see which league will be champions for 2012. Amongst the teams are several skaters who represented New Zealand and placed eighth in the first Roller Derby World Cup, held in Toronto, Canada late last year. Roller derby is a fast-paced sport in which teams of five women on roller skates take each other on for two-minute ‘jams’ where points are scored by the ‘jammer’ who needs to get around the track as many times as possible. The ‘blockers’ from each team help their own jammer through the pack and try to stop the other jammer by using their bottoms, hips and shoulders. There is an element of theatricality as well, with the athletes assuming alter-egos and dressing up for the bouts. It’s one of the world’s fastest-growing female

sports and there are now more than 20 leagues in New Zealand As a non-profit organisation, Dead End Derby will donate a percentage of all ticket sales towards their chosen charities for 2012 - Camp Quality Christchurch, SAFE and Gap Filler. Tickets are available from $15 at Cosmic Corner The Palms or Re:Start City Mall or online at Cosmic Ticketing, with door sales available on the night if tickets do not sell out prior.

Redevelopment plans are set to make The Hub the fourth largest shopping centre in Christchurch, this expansion will see Farmers increase in size from 1200sqm to 6000sqm across two levels. The upper level will be directly accessible from an expanded upper deck carpark. A brand new food court will also be built in the heart of the Mall to accommodate an expanded range of ready to eat food retailers, in a very contemporary environment. A new internal retail precinct will also be built following the line of Chalmers Street and joining the new Farmers with the existing northern entrance. This entrance will be heavily upgraded and enlarged to improve access and allow for more outdoor seating. To make space for this expansion the eastern end of Chalmers Street will be moved north by approximately a road width. “This will have the added benefit of

smoothing out the kink half way down Chalmers Street, which will improve visibility and pedestrian safety,” says Centre Manager Jason Marsden. “This expansion has been in the pipeline for some time now and the timing is perfect for the Western side of Christchurch which has seen amplification in growth following the earthquakes. “We have a waiting list of possible tenants but wish to ensure that we maximise the variety on offer at The Hub and pay special attention to increasing the range of women’s fashion available onsite.” The Hub Hornby is locally owned by a syndicate, Shopping Centre Investments Ltd, and is managed by Colliers International Property Management. Work is planned to commence this month, with the new Farmers expecting to be open for trade by Easter 2014, and the balance of the Centre completed by early 2015.

Keep warm and healthy A

cold home can not only make respiratory illnesses worse but can also cause problems, such as asthma, and aggravate diabetes and cardiac conditions. The ideal temperature within your home, particularly if you have elderly people or young children, is 21 degrees during the day and bedrooms should be 16 degrees at night. Check with your older relative if they are warm enough over winter and warm in bed at night. Dry wet clothes outside if there is sun as this will help prevent dampness. If you do need to dry clothes inside, place them in a spare room away from the living areas. Make sure nothing flammable is within a metre of a heater, especially when airing your clothes. It is also a good time to check your fire alarms to make sure they are working and they are installed correctly. Maintaining regular exercise and eating well are also important ways to keep well. During winter, have at least one hot meal per day. Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and keep up the hot drinks. Keep active during winter.

hong Kong SHARIAN DRAGON BOAT CREW 8TH CLUB CREW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS HONG KONG JULY 4 TO 8 2012 The Sharian Dragon Boat crew was established in September 2011 when training partners Shirley Boys’ High School and Marian College created a Mixed Junior crew to prepare for the 2011 – 2012 racing season. Both schools have been coached and swept by the experienced Russell Stocks, Shirley BHS since the advent of Dragon Boating in Christchurch in the 1990s and Marian for the last four years. After a successful 2011 season where Shirley BHS won their 8th National Boys title since 2003, and Marian College were runners-up in the Girls division, a number of senior students left school in late 2011. Due to the on-going earthquakes in Christchurch initially both crews had difficulty in recruiting new members and so the decision was made to combine trainings and enter the Sharian crew in the Ice Breaker Regatta in December 2011. Finishing 3rd in the sprints and 2nd in the 1km event provided great heart to the crew and they then competed with similar results in the rest of the seasons regattas. In 2011 Shirley BHS had qualified to represent New Zealand at the World Dragon Boat Championships in Tampa, Florida, but the situation in Christchurch was not conducive to undertaking the training required or to raise the required

funds, in spite of approaches to a number of USA companies seeking sponsorship. This would have been Shirley’s 3rd campaign at a World Championship after earlier representing New Zealand at Sydney in 2007 and Prague in 2009. The crew was obviously disappointed to miss the opportunity to improve on our previous best placing of 5th in the Prague 200m. The senior students of both crews then decided to aim for the World Club Crew Championships in Hong Kong in 2012 and thus the Sharian crew was born. Performances over the 2011-2012 season, including Shirley BHS winning nationals again and both crews gaining success over 2km, give us confidence that we can be competitive with other Junior crews in Hong Kong. The Sharian crew will be the sole New Zealand representative amongst approximately 300 crews from over 25 countries at the 8th Club Crew World Championships, which will be raced in Victoria Harbour and will commemorate the 21st anniversary of the birth of modern Dragon Boating. The crew will also have the opportunity to compete in the 36th anniversary Hong Kong Invitational Races which will precede the World Championships. Dragon Boat racing in our region is run by the Aoraki Dragon Boat Association and the Sharian crew is indebted to the association for allowing us to use their boats and facilities for training. Early in the most recent season we were travelling to Lake Pegasus three times a week for training as well as competing at regattas

there or at Lake Hood in Ashburton. Since the Avon River re-opened, our training has intensified and we now spend four mornings a week before dawn clocking up kilometres on the Avon, sometimes in exceedingly frosty conditions. Aoraki have also allowed us to base a boat at Lyttelton where we are also getting valuable time at weekends on the harbour to prepare the crew for racing in Hong Kong. Aoraki have always been very proactive in attempting to grow the sport at school and Under 23 level and thus have supported this crew as it opens up possibilities for smaller schools to amalgamate and become involved in what many regard as an ultimate team sport. The Sharian crew is also indebted to other members of its “crew”, namely their parents and siblings who have helped with the running and organising of many fundraising activities that will ensure that the tour will be fully funded. I am sure many will welcome the sleep-ins once the team has departed! While in Hong Kong, the Sharian crew will race over 200metres, 500metres and 2 kilometres and we trust that they will be worthy representatives of New Zealand and Christchurch, and will be able to prove that in spite of all the terrible destruction that has occurred in our city, we have some young citizens prepared to work hard to achieve a dream and to bring honour and recognition to our province.

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, add the oil and gradually add the warm water – use just enough to form dough. Knead the dough on a floured board for 5 minutes then set it aside to rest for 10 to 15 minutes – this makes it much easier to roll out. Divide the dough into 10 to 12 pieces and roll them out into circles, roughly 18cm across. Heat a frypan until it is very hot and cook the tortillas for 30 to 60 seconds until they bubble and start to go brown. Turn them over and repeat on the other side. When cooked,

wrap the tortillas in a clean, damp tea towel to keep them soft. To warm the tortillas, wrap them in foil and heat them in the oven, or place them on a plate, cover with cling film and microwave for 35 seconds.

Dig it – plant winter veges and realty save more than just money

T

ightening the belt often comes hand in hand with winter. And it’s not only due to rising costs of heating, fuel and food. Waistlines can feel a little tight and snug too due to the warm and hearty foods many of us lean towards when the temperatures plummet. It’s the simple pleasures that provide so much joy during this time. A welcome day of sunshine feels like you have won the lottery and with only a little investment of time you will be able to reap the rewards of what you sow and plant over winter.

What to do now

Simply red – simply better for you Eat yourself healthy. Maximise the health benefits of eating and planting red fruits and vegetables. Many of these are valuable sources of illness preventing nutrients such as lycopene, which are said to reduce the risk of some cancers and cholesterol. Many can be planted and sown in winter. Radish, beetroot, radicchio, red lettuce, rhubarb and of course strawberries can all go in now.

Bed time

Garden beds will need a feed to replace the valuable nutrients summer crops have used up. Organic options are Tui Organic compost or sheep pellets; alternatively blend in Novatec fertiliser to ensure the soil has all the goodies crops need to get growing. Layers of leaves, straw and manure can be added too.

Speedy greens, salad and soup veges

spinach, cabbage, silver beet, coriander, parsley, kale, cavolo nero and rocket. All of these are happy planted either in the garden or in pots at the back door or on the deck.

Rachel Vogan The Happy Gardener

Root jobs

Plant garlic and shallots any time over the winter months. Traditionally, both these tasty members of the onion family are planted on the shortest day and harvested on the longest. As the soil temperature hardly varies in winter, it doesn’t make much difference to the crop when the cloves are planted during the coldest season.

Bug watch

You don’t even need to don garden gloves to give plants the once over for sneaky clumps of overwintering insects. Aphids are the easiest to spot in groups; huddled together, this makes them easy to spray and eradicate with eco pest. Slugs and snails are still about. Deal with these slimeballs by laying plenty of Quash slug bait to prevent them from harvesting your crops before you can. Alternatively, get the kids active in the weekends to collect as many as they can and feed the neighbourhood chickens! Don’t panic if you have put up the closed sign for the winter – the garden can look after itself. Simply cover your garden beds with Tui Mulch and Feed or pelletised pea straw and walk away until spring. From the comfort of your own indoors order your seed catalogues and seeds for spring sowing and sign up for free vege club newsletters at www.tuigarden. co.nz.

Plant now: Cavolo nero is a hardy winter vege that copes with snow, frost and cold.

Celebrating 60 years in Ilam Road

R

eaching 60 years in business is an exciting time for Ewart Douglas Pharmacy in Ilam Road. Ewart Douglas Pharmacy opened its doors in Ilam Road by the Fendalton shops on May 10, 1952. In those days it was surrounded by open paddocks on the fringes of Christchurch city, with tracks rather than roads. Pharmacist Blair Murray says that one of the shop’s first customers 60 years ago still lives locally and visits the pharmacy regularly. The pharmacy was opened by Ewart Douglas and has been serving the local community for over 59 years. It is the longest established pharmacy in the northwest part of Christchurch and caters for all your pharmacy needs whether it’s filling a prescription, stocking up on cold and flu remedies for winter, shopping for a perfume or buying that perfect gift. Initially a tiny shop and dispensary, the pharmacy doubled in size in 1967 and Ewart Douglas was joined by his nephew Alistair Douglas in running the pharmacy in 1972. After Ewart retired, Blair Murray went into

partnership with Alistair, who has now retired himself. The Ewart Douglas Pharmacy is about to have major renovations to the front part of the shop but the pharmacy will remain open. Blair says that although the alterations were not part of the plan for “celebrating” their 60th anniversary, it is necessary due to damage caused by the earthquakes on February 22. The team at Ewart Douglas Pharmacy will continue to operate with a portacom around the corner in Clyde Road, where staff will be able to safely access the dispensary and shop through the back door. The good news is that there is an amazing sale now to reduce some of the stock that will have to be moved to make room for the renovation to the front half of the building. So next time you’re near the Fendalton shops, visit Blair and the friendly team to have your prescription filled, get some advice about staving off winter illnesses, or buy that special gift for someone you love. Ewart Douglas Pharmacy is at 403 Ilam Road, with plenty of parking outside.

Compassion How often do you make judging comments? How often do you criticise someone else? Why do we do this? It makes no sense unless you think that you are perfect and right and that everyone needs to be the same as you. Do you? If you are confident in your own being why would you have to criticise others anyway? Can’t you let them do things their own way?

It can feel uncomfortable to be with someone who is different because it makes us feel a bit out of control and maybe not good enough or right. There is a feeling of safety when others do the same as you. Have compassion for yourself and understand yourself and compassion for others will follow. annette@emotionaltherapy.co.nz

Cashmere to host Polish concert THE Polish Association will hold a Polish-influenced concert featuring flautist Adriana Lis and pianist Sarah Watkins in Cashmere tomorrow evening. Polish-born Lis is the principal flautist of the Auckland Chamber Orchestra while Watkins is a member of NZTrio. The programme will feature music by Debussy, Poulenc and Chopin, as well as some lesser known but equally beautiful works from Polish and New Zealand composers, including Michael Williams’ new piece When We Fell and Gao Ping’s Sonatine-Dialogue Between Wind and Snow for flute

and piano. Both pieces come from Adrianna’s recently released debut CD Dialogue/Rozmowa. The recording is a cross-cultural offering which reflects the multiculturalism of the New Zealand society. The Polish Association also organised a Chopin bicentennial concert in 2010 and held a concert for the reconstruction of the Arts Centre last year. The concert begins at 7.30pm at St Augustine’s Anglican Church at 5 Cracroft Terrace. Tickets range from $15 to $25 and are available from Dash Tickets. Door sales are also available.

From the sideline with Pete Smith

pete.smith@ctv.co.nz

It was a black and white weekend I have lived in Christchurch all my life and I can’t recall such heavy snowfall in early June as the one we had last weekend. It started on Wednesday and even on Saturday there was still a heap of the white stuff frozen on most of the city’s sports grounds. Sporting bodies had no option but to cancel the sport they had planned for the day. When the city council pulled the use of their grounds then it was really all over. I went to Rugby Park on Friday where the CTV match was scheduled to be played the next day and at least two metres of snow was still lying around. I know for a fact the Canterbury Rugby Union hates cancelling any rugby but seniors

is always a must play situation. Last Saturday, they had to very reluctantly pull the entire round of Hawkins Cup Metro Rugby. What really amazed me was the number of mates who said to me, “What are we going to do now?” Just shows how important Saturday sport still is to the average bloke who follows their team week in week out. The consolation prize for sports fans was the prospect of watching the 2012 All Blacks start their international season. Steve Hansen and his selection/coaching panel had come up with a very interesting mix of old and new and there was a lot of nervousness around just how this team would perform. Traditionally, the All Blacks tend to

be slow starters to their early season campaigns but not this squad. Ireland deserved respect and I for one believed the Irish would throw the kitchen sink at the ABs for at least the first 40 minutes. This just didn’t happen and I didn’t blame the Irish. Quite frankly they were never allowed to flex their muscles as the All Blacks came out determined to show the New Zealand public that they were not suffering a World Cup hangover. They wanted to put their stamp on the 2012 season right from the get go. The new boys showed that when they were given a chance to wear the Black Jersey, you would have one hell of a fight to get it back off them!

No one shirked their duty and to be fair they looked to me as though they were a team that had played together regularly. The potential the young guys showed should mean that All Black fans could well be in for a bumper season and deserve our support. I’m sure Coach Hansen and Ritchie would have told the team that last year is gone and this is the start of an era of All Black rugby to be primed and ready to go out in 2015 and defend last year’s crown that everyone worked so hard to achieve for our nation. We here in Christchurch are privileged to have international rugby back in the city and I for one am really going to enjoy the entire experience!

Latham faces stern test in West Indies Tom Doudney PROMISING Canterbury batsman Tom Latham expects playing for the Black Caps against West Indies to be a big step up from his debut series against Zimbabwe earlier this year. Latham has been selected in the Black Caps ODI and T20 squads for the tour of West Indies which begins later this month. The young batsman was impressive against Zimbabwe in February, scoring 79 runs in three ODIs at an average of 39.5. This included an innings of 48 from 28 balls. Latham acknowledged that the West Indies bowling attack would be a sterner test of his abilities. “They’re going to be a couple of steps ahead of Zimbabwe and they’ve been playing some good cricket. I’ve got a set of goals in mind. Obviously the pace is going to increase and their spinners are going to play a part so I’ve got to work out a game plan which is going to work well for me.”

However, he was pleased with how his fledgling international cricket career had progressed so far. “I think as a starting point it went alright. I know it’s only Zimbabwe but still to go out there and get the runs, I thought I handled Next level: Canterbury the situation that I came batsman Tom Latham is into pretty well.” set to play for the Black More senior Black Caps against the West Caps players had helped Indies. him make a smooth transition to the top level. “The guys have been good. They’re all very welcoming and try to help you out as much as possible, which is obviously nice for a young fellow that’s coming in.”

Millions allotted for Kaiapoi pylons Gina McKenzie

THE developers of a 51-hectare West Kaiapoi subdivision with 1115 sections are spending millions undergrounding pylons and power lines that run through their development. Silverstream Estates, which incorporates the Kaiapoi substation, is located between Giles, Island and Butchers roads and also to the east of Island Road. Developer Fred Rahme said while four large pylons and power lines running through the

subdivision would be undergrounded, the Kaiapoi substation on Island Road would remain onsite. “It’s costing millions to do this but at the end of the day I wouldn’t want to live with large pylons so that’s why we’re undergrounding them. “The area surrounding the substation won’t be used for housing but will be a retail area with shops and a café.” The underground power lines will be connected

to two single poles at the top north eastern corner of the subdivision which will carry the lines across Island Road. Stage one of the four-stage development, which is set to open at the end of the month, has been fast-tracked due to an agreement between the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (Cera), the Waimakariri District Council, Environment Canterbury and the developers. Mr Rahme said this was due to the high demand for land by red-zoned residents wanting to remain in the Kaiapoi area. “We’ve got two or three generations of some families buying houses here who want to be close to Kaiapoi and being able to stay in their hometown makes them feel more comfortable about moving.” Stage two of the development should be ready by the end of the year with stage three due for completion in early 2013. Mr Rahme added that the flood-prone lowlying section of land in the northern corner of the subdivision bordered by Island and Mill roads would not be used for housing but would contain a number of lakes. “The whole area of land has been built up to offer flood protection and there will be a 2.8-kilometre river walking track running

Gym fun for Aranui students

Ready to jump: Aranui Primary School students Tametou Tuhou, 9, Theo Palmer, 9, and Maria Petelo, 8, prepare to do a star jump at the Christchurch School of Gymnastics (CSG) on Monday. The school, along with Wainoni and Central New Brighton primary schools, is receiving four free gymnastics sessions thanks to a $5000 grant CSG received from the Fonterra Rebuilding Communities Programme.

Wainoni warms up for winter

Keeping cosy: Val Gylstra, Aileen Prebble and Bessie Coffey of the Wainoni Avonside Community Services Trust (WACST) community centre were well-prepared for last week’s sudden cold snap with donated blankets and lamps. The community centre received 15 peggy square blankets knitted by Shirley Phillips and the Methodist Women’s Fellowship and 150 battery-operated remote-controlled

lamps from Christchurch Rotary. Another volunteer donated 24 hot water bottles with knitted covers. WACST coordinator Betty Chapman described the donation as ‘humbling’. “It’s wonderful that even 20 months later a lot of folk are still thinking of the elderly living over in the east especially with the cold winter weather we’ve been having.”

Annual event celebrates trainees’ achievements CHRISTCHURCH trade apprentices, who are playing an integral role in the city’s rebuild, had their achievements recognised at a special ceremony at the Aurora Centre, Burnside, on Monday. Around 100 apprentices and industry trainees attended the annual event, which was first held in 2004. They have all completed

apprenticeships and gained New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) certification in trades in the last year. Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker said the event was an opportunity to celebrate the success of people who were critical to the rebuild of the city. It recognised the achievements of people in trades such as building, plumbing and

horticulture, as well as other industries like hairdressing and caregivers, Mr Parker said. “All these jobs are essential to our workforce and economy.” The Christchurch City Council hosted the ceremony in association with the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs and various Industry Training Organisations.

Canterbury mayors Mr Parker, David Ayers, Waimakariri, and Kelvin Coe, Selwyn, attended the ceremony, along with family members of graduates, employers and representatives from Industry Training Organisations (ITOs). Duncan Gibb, alliance manager from Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT) was the guest speaker.

Kaiapoi school leads carton race Gina McKenzie

Cartons galore: Year 7 and 8 students at Kaiapoi Borough School with teacher Dan George display some of the 1851 toothpaste cartons they have collected to lead the nationwide Colgate Carton Race. From left: Courtney Campbell, 11; Dan George; George Jacobs-Lawson, 12; Rochelle Wood, 11; Makarini Rupene, 12; Sam McCartin, 12, and Natalie Gamble 11.

You know you live in Christchurch when... ...your tyres are excited about our new Saturday opening hours.

8.30am – 2.30pm

ADOPTING a creative approach has paid off for Kaiapoi Borough School, which now leads a nationwide toothpaste carton collecting competition with 1851 boxes. The school will win $12,500 worth of sports equipment if they can stay at the top of the Colgate Carton Race leader board until the contest closes later this month. Along with leading the carton race, the school was also named as a finalist in the creative section of the contest, which is judged according to the most creative use of cartons. Teacher Daniel George said the competition, which was started off by a pupil in his year 7 and 8 class, had snowballed into a schoolwide event with cartons sent in from as far afield as America. “It has given us something positive to focus on since we were hit hard by the earthquakes. “We’ve connected with schools in North Carolina, New York and Florida who are sending boxes of empty cartons to our school.” Mr George said his class had learned important new skills through the contest such as creating advertising campaigns and

networking. “We’ve been frantically throwing about ideas about how to get wider support so we can win this competition. “Children have been collecting cartons from friends and family and we’ve set up drop boxes at supermarkets.” School principal Ash Maindonald said the competition had provided a huge boost for the school. “The creativity and energy levels shown by the pupils has been amazing. It’s very exciting for us.” Mr George said the school had until June 29 to reach their goal of 10,000 cartons and they were hoping that Canterbury would get behind them. “The bulk of the competition is from North Island schools so it would be wonderful for a local school to take top place but we know we need a lot of local support for this to be possible. “The kids have been so resilient through the events of the last year and a half so this would be a great way to put some smiles on faces.” People can drop off their empty Colgate cartons at Kaiapoi Borough School in Hilton Street, Kaiapoi.

Black is back! Plenty of grunt: It has been almost two years since Christchurch hosted the All Blacks. This weekend they’re back to face Ireland in their second test at AMI Stadium. The boys trained at Linfield Park on Tuesday in very cold and windy conditions. Similar weather conditions are forecast for Saturday night’s match. Honing their tackling techniques are Tony Woodcock and Sam Whitelock. Photo: Tania Butterfield

A NEW complex being built on Papanui Road, Merivale, is bringing a fresh look to the shopping centre. It is replacing a strip of retail premises destroyed in the February 2011 earthquake. Joanna Beadle, daughter of Judith Hadfield who owned five of the units, said the new building made the shops look more consistent and would improve the whole look of the area. Merivale was becoming an attractive option and was one of the places people were now gravitating to, she said. Mrs Hadfield is in a joint venture with Merivale resident Brian Smith to develop the complex, which runs along Papanui Road opposite Merivale Mall. Mrs Beadle is managing the building project on behalf of her mother, who is elderly.

Architectural design firm Weirwalker designed the building. It is described as a “modern, contemporary design”. “The new shops are bigger than we anticipated. We had five shops, but there are now three. The shops also have an upstairs area for storage and a staff area,” Mrs Beadle said. The reason for the change in size was council regulations requiring disabled toilets to be installed, which made the single unit retail space too small, Mrs Beadle said. The businesses taking up leases in the complex are Alabasters Pharmacy, which was previously trading in Merivale, a shoe store, fashion retailer Dfusion, formerly in Victoria Street, and Flight Centre, which

has also been in Merivale previously. This unit is owned by Mr Smith. “There are no food businesses. There was not much interest from the food sector,” Mrs Beadle said. The fashion store opened several weeks ago and the other businesses were expected to open within the next few weeks. Once the businesses were up and running, Mrs Hadfield would take over the management of the complex, she said. The adjoining building on the corner of Mansfield Avenue and Papanui Road is in three titles, two owned by Bennett Cycles Ltd and the other by DL & IJ Manning. The hairdressing business Kudos, which was on the site prior to the earthquake, will be leasing space in the building.

Break-in attempts at Wairakei Rd food businesses

The cycling scene

with Paul Odlinpaul@christchurchcyclecoach-

Sitting down with Anton Cooper I caught up with rising star and New Zealand’s most promising mountain biking export, Anton Cooper, to find out a bit more about him. I’ve witnessed a level of maturity in you beyond your years. Do you attribute this maturity to any role models in your life or has it come naturally? AC: My parents have always had an influence and this has helped me pick up good sponsors along the way. Also my manager (Martin Whitely) has really developed the professional side of things in me. Mountain biking experienced a boom in the 90s but recently has been overshadowed by road cycling in New Zealand. Where do you see its future? AC: I noticed at the national champs a couple of years ago nothing too much happening in terms of numbers but definitely in the last year we’ve seen a huge growth, especially with a few riders getting results overseas.

Christine de Felice

This is encouraging youngsters to get out there and do it and they’ve realised that you can make a living out of it. Who’s your biggest inspiration? AC: I didn’t really grow up looking up to anyone but if I had to pick one it’d have to be Julien Absalon (French Olympic mountain bike champion) who has dominated for a long time. What is your main goal for this year? AC: Win the under-19 world championships in Austria in early September. What is your favourite track in the Christchurch area? AC: The ‘Flying Nun’. Finally, what advice do you have for girls and boys wanting to be the best in their sport? AC: The main thing is hard work does pay off. If you want to put in the time and effort you will get the reward for it some stage along the track.

Hockey pitch preparation on track Ground work: Snowy conditions didn’t deter the contractors from getting on with the job at Nunweek Park last week. The work is being done in preparation for the installation of a third artificial pitch for Hockey Canterbury, which will be put down in the spring. The park will become a temporary main base for Christchurch’s hockey players following significant earthquake damage to their former home at Porritt Park.

TWO food businesses in Wairakei Road have been the target of would-be burglars in recent weeks. At 4.20am on May 6, someone cut through the padlock at the gate at the rear of Aorangi Bakery’s premises. The person was then recorded on the security camera attempting to cut through the padlock on the store’s chiller. That was unsuccessful, so the person drove off, business owner Serey Chum said. The incident has prompted Mr Chum to install an alarm. On June 3, at 12.08am, another vehicle drove into the backyard of the bakery. The driver got out, shook the gate, then left hurriedly when he saw the alarm box, Mr Chum said. “He then walked round to the front of the shop, stopped for a few minutes then drove off. He came back a short time later and smashed the glass of the sushi shop. The alarm went off and he ran away.” There were two people involved in the second break-in attempt, a man and a girl, Mr Chum said. He thought the same people were involved in both the May and June incidents, but he couldn’t be sure. He reported the second incident at his shop to the police. The owner of Sushi Revolution also reported the incident. Mr Chum, who opened his Wairakei Road bakery in July 2011 after his Bower Avenue business was lost in the February 22 earthquake, said people were hanging around the (Wairakei Road) area at night. Stephen Hill of the Christchurch Police said inquiries on the two incidents were continuing but there was “nothing firm at this stage”. The police had not seen any significant spike of such incidents in the area recently, Mr Hill said.
