Flu rates skyrocket

Beating the flu: Immunisation is the best way to prevent the spread of influenza, says Canterbury District Health Board medical officer of health Dr Alistair Humphrey.

Gina McKenzie SKY-ROCKETING influenza rates in Canterbury have yet to peak with another wave expected to hit as students return to school, according to Canterbury District Health Board virologist Dr Lance Jennings. Last week, Canterbury’s average rate leapt to 50 cases per 100,000 people which was more than double the national average of 20 cases per 100,000. The increase was linked to people living in crowded conditions, post earthquake. Influenza A (H3N2), influenza B and swine flu (H1N1), along with other viruses causing severe respiratory infections in young children, were hitting the region hard with over 90 people currently in isolation in Christchurch Hospital. Dr Jennings said children clustered together in classrooms

and those living in overcrowded cold homes could push flu rates even higher over the coming months. “I expect that this flu outbreak will peak in about four to six weeks time which will be just after children return to school. “Children with the flu could easily spread this among their classmates if they have picked it up during the break. “We also have influenza B circulating so we could see an increase over several more months.” Dr Jennings described influenza as the “straw that breaks the camel’s back” with around 400 nationwide per year attributed to flu-related complications. “When people are living in overcrowded cold conditions such as those we have seen post-earthquake they can become more susceptible to illnesses such as influenza.”

High rates of unimmunised youth were also driving the spread of flu according to Canterbury District Health Board medical officer of health Dr Alistair Humphrey. Dr Humphrey said it was disappointing that only 12 percent of under-18-year-olds had received the free flu vaccination this year compared with 25 percent when it was introduced last year. “We started this free programme in Canterbury to combat the spread of viruses in cold overcrowded houses after the earthquakes.” Dr Humphrey urged all Cantabrians to get immunised to prevent the further spread of influenza this winter. The flu vaccine is free to under-18-year-olds in, over 65s, pregnant women and those with a chronic illness until July 31.

McMaster Heap Veterinary practice

WInSTOn THe WArrIOr CAT Winston, a totally cool, cruisey neutered male, tabby DSH, was presented one morning to McMaster & Heap Vets as he came home, after being out on the town, not weight bearing on his left hind leg. Winston being Winston, continued to purr, eat, groom himself and try to maneuver the litter tray, even though his left hind was not co-operating at all. All in all his owners weren’t that worried as he seemed so content. On first examination I knew he had fractured his tibia. This limb was just hanging, seemingly not attached to his body, but he appeared to have sensation in his toes and he didn’t appear in a huge amount of pain. Heart rate, respiratory rate and temperature were all normal and Winston was toileting normally. His abdomen appeared swollen as well so we radiographed his tummy area and left hind leg. The tibia was completely shattered into several pieces and he had a massive abdominal hernia as well. Looking at him, he appeared completely normal, not understanding why he was caged. I suspected these injuries were probably the result of a dog attack and it is a miracle Winston didn’t die at the scene. Winston’s owners were completely in love with him and it wasn’t hard to see why. Handsome, smoochy and darn cool. He was prepared for surgery the next day and I spent over 4 hours repairing carefully all his many injuries while snowflakes were falling outside.

“I was told to go home and rest which I did but then I had to go back a few days later after it became painful to breathe.” Mr Swiggs said on his return visit he was told by his doctor that he was close to developing pneumonia and prescribed antibiotics for his chest infection. “Normally I just get sick for a day or two but this was a very different type of flu and I have definitely never experienced anything like this before.” The only way to recover from the flu, according to Mr Swiggs, was to rest and take time off work. “It’s so debilitating and just makes you sicker than you’ve ever been. “I stayed in bed and didn’t do anything for days because I could hardly move.”

A SEVERE bout of influenza lasting almost three weeks left Addington resident Deon Swiggs feeling like he’d been “run over by a truck”. Mr Swiggs, who had received the influenza vaccination this year, said he was surprised by how swiftly the illness took hold. “It started off with just a sore throat and aches but then I developed golf-ball-sized lumps in my throat and couldn’t stop shaking and shuddering. “I literally felt like I was going to die. “I was in so much pain that even with the shower turned on low my whole body was on fire.” After coughing up blood, becoming delirious and developing a chest infection Mr Swiggs visited his doctor who told him he had influenza.

and since we started planning this the rugby ground has gone there, so it has definitely become a hub.” Mr Paynter said there had been a lot of support for the project which was situated in the heart of post-earthquake commercial activity. It is close to the reopened Court Theatre. “In my view the centre of the city is going to be many years before it has got hospitality life back in it.” The buildings at 14 Wise Street were established by the Woods Brothers in 1890. They are listed as a Group 2 protected heritage item in the Christchurch City Plan and registered by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust as a Category II historic place. They have historical and social significance as one of the largest former mills in the South Island. Mayor Bob Parker said he was delighted the grant paved the way for work to be undertaken on a group of buildings which were highly valued by many in the community. “After experiencing a great deal of loss with our heritage it is wonderful to be able to turn our attention to caring for a group of buildings which has been such an important part of the social and built fabric of what is now our inner city. This mill is in many ways the embodiment of Addington’s rich industrial history,” he said.

IT’S full steam ahead for a $20 million entertainment hub planned for a heritage site in Addington. The former Woods Brothers Flour Mill buildings are set to be repaired, with the Christchurch City Council approving a Heritage Incentive Grant of up to $884,750 for conservation and maintenance work. Last October property developer Richmond Paynter and businessman Shaun Johnston revealed plans to transform the buildings into an entertainment hub called Woods Mill. They said it would help re-establish former inner-city bars and restaurants that were displaced after the February 22, 2011 earthquake and be similar to the SOL Square and Lichfield Lanes developments. Now they have signed up seven restaurants, along with a boutique hotel operator with plans for 55 rooms. The pair had hoped to have the hub opened by now but they had only just been granted resource consent, Mr Paynter said. They were now expecting construction to begin in October, with an estimated opening date in April 2013. The Addington area was still growing, he said. “There have been at least two or three further office buildings which have started construction,

I understand people’s comments on bigger priorities, but like sport or not stadiums bring in big events which bring money into the economy - our recovery as a city relies on this. Twenty years from now we would all be wondering why it wasn’t done. People think too short term and this is bad. Kasuni Thewaraperuma: The stadium should be funded as a public-private partnership. It’s almost a foreign concept in NZ for some reason. There is obvious public and private good coming out of it. The real trick is to get the balance right with who pays what proportion. Nicholas Smeaton: If a covered stadium will be as good an earner as its supporters claim it will be, they can pay for it out of their own pockets. The people of Dunedin think they were ripped off and we should learn from their mistakes. Chris Ruston: If it is only used for rugby then it is a problem for rugby. If other sports are using the stadium then they should contribute. It is not a tax payer issue which rules out the Government and neither should it be up to the council. Why have a covered stadium when it is not being used seven days a week? Housing and rebuilding Christchurch should be far more important issues.

News in brief No cooling down in city’s rental market THE heat in the Christchurch rental market shows no signs of abating, but the rest of the country has cooled off, according to Trade Me Property’s analysis for the three months from April to June. In Christchurch, the number of enquiries from potential tenants soared 47 per cent compared to the same period in 2011, even higher than the 42 per cent increase observed last quarter. Head of Trade Me Property Brendon Skipper said acute pressure on the Christchurch market was flowing through to “steepening” rents from landlords. “The news for prospective Christchurch tenants is still grim, with rent sky-rocketing an average of 26 per cent, in stark contrast to the national rise of just four per cent.” Mr Skipper said there were three “pressure cooker” suburbs: the central city, Linwood and St Albans. “We’ve seen the number of properties available for rent in these three suburbs plummet more than 40 per cent on a year ago. “And on the flip side, the properties that do get listed are attracting huge volumes of enquiry. For example, in Linwood the level of demand is up 101 per cent on last year.” Mr Skipper said there was no doubt the state of the market in these suburbs was going to force people to look to other areas for a place to rent.

Poverty ‘becoming entrenched’ Chris Tobin

POVERTY is becoming more and more entrenched in the city, says Christchurch Methodist Mission executive director Mary Richardson. “People with limited resources are suffering and things are impacting more. Families with children are still carrying stress from the earthquakes and are also lacking resources; they have no money for heating. “It (poverty) is growing in Christchurch. More are coming to social agencies and we’ve got growing demand for our services. There are people on our waiting lists for our services. The Methodist mission works with families in need and people without social supports. “A lot are coming for basic issues regarding clothing, heating and paying rent,” Ms Richardson said. Catholic charitable organisation St Vincent de Paul was experiencing unprecedented winter demand according to operations manager Penny Marks. “We have up to 40 calls a day for food parcels; sometimes it can be even more. We have people in our office crying on a daily basis.” Major Mike Allwright of the Salvation Army said many families in the city were struggling. In the last four weeks the Salvation Army has assisted 1682 families, many for food parcels, 93 for basic items such as linen and blankets. Housing was a major problem. “All our housing is full and we’ve had to put eight families into motels on a short-term basis with us paying and we can’t afford it. We lost three major stores in the quake and $1.2 million income.” Ms Richardson said the situation in the eastern suburbs was critical. “The poverty is compounding there; there are difficulties dealing with housing, there are financial problems and job uncertainty.” She said schools were finding increased

behavioural problems with children showing symptoms of anxiety and stress. Mairehau Primary School principal John Bangma said more students were attending the school’s breakfast club. Students can receive a breakfast four days a week at the school. “I know many parents have a lot of stress.” Mr Bangma, who is also president of the Canterbury Primary Principals’ Association, said ongoing shakes, unpredictability and pressures at home had resulted in more aggressive behaviour being reported in the city’s schools. Two-thirds of 140 primary schools surveyed by his association earlier this year reported deterioration in behaviour. Last year primary schools in the city reported 344 student standdowns; 125 were reported in the first term this year.

Red zone school students showing ‘resilience’ THE 750 students of Chisnallwood Intermediate in Avondale are not stressed as a result of the earthquakes but showing great resilience, the principal, Richard Paton, says. The school did not take part in a survey of 140 schools undertaken by the Canterbury Primary Principals’ Association earlier this year which reported a decline in behaviour in two-thirds of the schools.

“We’ve been very, very pleased with the behaviour of our students throughout the year,” Mr Paton said. “They’ve shown incredible resilience to the quakes. “We’re in the red zone and many of the children are going home to broken houses, or they’ve had to shift.” Mr Paton said the school had experienced major challenges but it was fully operational.

one more thing

Engineer relives Plan anticipated by some assessment every day CTV reporter Gracie Fea has been attending the Canterbury Earthquakes Royal Commission inquiry into the collapse of the CTV building. This week she reviews the evidence given by the structural engineer who signed off the building after the September 2010 earthquake. THE structural engineer who signed off the CTV building says he relives his September 2010 assessment every day, asking himself what he could have done differently. David Coatsworth fought back tears in front of the Canterbury Earthquakes Royal Commission as he offered his condolences to the families of the 115 people who died in the CTV building. However, he believed he had done everything he should have. CTV building manager John Drew should have been in the CTV building working in his medical practice, The Clinic, on the fifth floor. Fortunately, he and his wife, who also worked at the practice, were out of town on February 22. Mr Drew was in the process of purchasing the CTV building and had been paid to manage it by Madras Equities. While he understood a green sticker issued by the Christchurch City Council in September meant the building was safe, he contracted

David Coatsworth to carry out a detailed assessment. He failed to alert Mr Coatsworth the structural drawings he had requested had arrived at the council. They were never viewed by the CPG engineer. A council rapid assessment was the only assessment carried out on the CTV building after Boxing Day. The building was again green stickered. Counsel assisting the commission Mark Zerifah said a common understanding of the green stickers had been the building was safe to occupy. In reality, green stickers recommend the owner undertake a detailed engineering assessment as the rapid assessment is a visual inspection only. A level-one rapid assessment consists of an exterior visual check of the building. A level-two assessment is subsequently carried out by a team including an engineer to assess the interior and exterior. No such engineer was deployed to the CTV building due to unavailability. Christchurch City Council building policies manager Stephen McCarthy told the commission he never expected the team to carry out a level-two assessment, despite telling them to do whatever they believed necessary. Mr McCarthy conceded the system needed revision. Legislation needed to incorporate that the owner is to ensure their tenants were safe and the onus should be on the landlord not the council, he said. There were also concerns about the demolition of the building adjacent to CTV. Mr McCarthy said he was unaware of a wrecking ball being used on the site and that the work was never given consent by the council. CTV building occupants said the demolition work made the building rock, one who survived the collapse said the demolition work made her feel ‘seasick’. Others found it hard to distinguish between the demolition and aftershocks, saying the size of the shaking would be consistent with the size of the digger being used.

solution, the patient environment is very professional, and is a credit to everyone involved,” he said. Moving outpatients from the Parkside block freed up space at Christchurch Hospital to allow the construction of a new Acute Medical Assessment Unit (AMAU), Mr Meates said. The existing AMAU will move from Level One in the Riverside Block to the old Outpatients site on the ground floor of Christchurch Hospital in Parkside West. The space where AMAU was will revert to a General Medicine ward.

Milestones for Suburban Centres programme Almost exactly a year after they were initiated, the council’s masterplans for the rebuild and redesign of Sydenham and Lyttelton have been officially adopted. Mainland Press reporter Tom Doudney spoke to council healthy environment manager Jenny Ridgen, as well as team leaders Mark Rushworth and Carolyn Bonis about the Suburban Centres programme’s progress so far and what the future holds. FOR two of Christchurch’s quake devastated suburbs, last month marked an important milestone in the long road to recovery – the culmination of 12 months of planning, discussions, disagreements and resolutions. Lyttelton and Sydenham are the first of eight commercial centres to have their masterplans officially adopted and the next two, Selwyn St Shops and Linwood Village are expected to follow within the next two months. Sumner, Ferry Rd, Edgeware and New Brighton masterplans will be rolled out further down the track. For Jenny Ridgen, who has overseen the Suburban Centres programme almost since its inception but is now leaving the council to work for the Ministry for Primary Industries, it seems a fitting time to bow out. She is proud of what her team has achieved. “We started out with communities who were in many cases just shell shocked. They didn’t know where to go. “What I think the masterplans actually do is a community-agreed vision for the way forward and it’s not just council that delivers that, it’s the community. So if nothing else, for those thinking ‘ok, I’m sitting here, I’ve lost my business, what do I next?’ - well here is something that puts that all in context.” It’s one thing to toot your own horn but the New Zealand Planning Institute was clearly impressed in May when it gave the council its best practice award, for the masterplanning of Sydenham and Lyttelton. It hasn’t always been plain sailing, however. For instance, in Lyttelton there were complaints that the process needed to

be a more even partnership, instead of being council-led. Mark Rushworth says he believes things have moved on since then and the response to consultation on the draft plan had been very positive, showing a high degree of support. “Those are parts of the learnings that we’ve been picking up along the way about how we need to keep in touch with the community but I think overall we have done a significant amount and come a long way.” Ms Ridgen acknowledges there have been times when the council and its communities haven’t seen eye to eye over the planning process but says the relationship has generally been heading in the right direction. “We’ve certainly had hiccups with different things in different places with different people but life wouldn’t be interesting if it wasn’t like that. “Even when we’ve been at odds with some of the communities, what the end goal is has never been in dispute. That’s to pull that community in for the benefit of that community.” Adoption of the final plans, Edgeware and New Brighton is expected to happen sometime next year but the process of implementing the masterplans is expected to be carried out over the next 10 years and gradually integrated into the wider district plan process. “Hopefully, the vision that we’re setting for these centres is a vision that is robust for a good while yet and will set the future Planners: Jenny Ridgen, centre, along with team leaders Mark Rushworth and Carolyn Bonis have been overseeing the council’s Suburban Centres programme.

Tsunami warning system operational THE tsunami siren system installed from Waimari Beach to Sumner last month is now operational. The 22 sirens have been placed in areas where scientific advice has shown the vulnerability of the area, the level of evacuation is difficult, high density population and where they can be heard the best. The sirens will be used to alert people of a distant source tsunami most likely generated by a large earthquake in South America or Alaska where there is a 12 to 15 hour notice before it hit the coast. It may also be used in the event of a regional earthquake with a one to three hour gap before it hits the coast. However, there would not be enough time to alert people in the event of a local tsunami and people are advised to evacuate vertically and get to the highest point in their homes. The sirens will have its first testing next Sunday, July 22 for two minutes at 11am. The test

will give residents the opportunity to hear the sirens for the first time and distinguish them from other emergency services’ sirens. Christchurch residents are asked to note this date in their diary, mark it on their calendar and let their neighbours to avoid any confusion. The council is also asking you to check on our neighbours, in particular those who are elderly or have a disability, to ensure they are OK during the testing. If during testing the sirens are reactivated for more than 10 minutes, it will no longer be a test and residents will need to evacuate the area. Further testing of the tsunamis will happen twice a year on the Sunday when daylight saving begins and ends. Tsunami siren testing, Sunday July 22, 11am, lasting one to two minutes.

New initiative sees crime rates drop “The smallest thing like a different person in the neighbourhood or a suspicious car in the area at night could be important so I want to encourage people to report anything unusual they may see.” Inspector Bruce said the next stage of the initiative would be a joint meeting with the police, community watch, neighbourhood support and Maori wardens. “We want to get everyone in the community together to work on this.” Meeting: Secretary to the Treasury Gabriel Makhlouf met with Christchurch business people last week.

Record numbers boost Museum profile MOR MORE than 8000 people have visited Canterbury Museum since it partially opened on Monday, July 2. Museum director Anthony Wright said he was confident those numbers would continue to rise as the museum continues to work towards a full reopening opening next month. “Given the fact that we are only partially open, our visitor numbers have been fantastic – we’ve had 8500 people through our doors,” Mr Wright said. “The amount of support we have received reflects just how important the museum is to our local and international communities. We have a strong reputation and, now more than ever, we have a vital role to play in the recovery of our city.” Visitor numbers were likely boosted by the popularity of the Canterbury Quakes exhibition and partially reopening on the first day of the school holidays. The Canterbury Quakes exhibition is due to go on tour in October so those wanting to visit it should do so before then, Mr Wright said.

the buildings down so the fact that is happening shows the rebuild is happening,” Mr Makhlouf said. Christchurch business people had noted there was international interest in investing in Christchurch. “What the government can do is make sure it puts in place the conditions of stability which will encourage people to invest in the country as a whole. “From an international perspective, they will look at New Zealand first and then look at where they will put their investment. Christchurch and the Canterbury region were very important economic centres of activity and remain as important centres of economic activity. There’s no reason that won’t continue. I’m pretty positive about it,” Mr Makhlouf said.

Prevention key: New prevention manager Inspector Richard Bruce says a proactive crime prevention programme has seen a 12 per cent drop in crime for Canterbury this year.

CHRISTCHURCH business owners would like to see schools established in the central city as a way to rejuvenate life in the CBD after the earthquakes of the past two years, the secretary to the Treasury says. The Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce hosted secretary to the Treasury Gabriel Makhlouf last week to discuss the economic outlook for the country post-budget. Mr Makhlouf said after the meeting he was really interested in the connections people were making between having a skilled workforce and a vibrant city centre and the importance of having schools in the city centre. “I hadn’t really thought about those connections, but a number of people made those points,” he said. “A vibrant city centre is important for Christchurch and the way to have a vibrant city centre is to have people in there and the way to have people living in city centres is you need jobs and schools in the city centre which is not where we were before the earthquake.” In 2010, Canterbury University planned to move its music department into the city centre, but that proposal was not discussed, Mr Makhlouf said. “People were talking about having schools, not the university.” While he did not have the treasury’s forecast for Christchurch itself, Mr Makhlouf said the Treasury was predicting a 2.6 per cent growth nationally for the year to March 2013 rising to 3.4 per cent the following year. “Christchurch is an important part of that,” he said. While it was fair to say the Christchurch rebuild had been delayed due to ongoing aftershocks, it was not at a complete standstill. “I think what people tend to define the rebuild by is the city centre, but we define it as being when are houses being built, etc., and that is happening. Part of the rebuild involves taking

A NEW police initiative has contributed to a 12 per cent drop in recorded crime throughout Canterbury this year, according to prevention manager Inspector Richard Bruce. The programme, launched in December 2011 as part of a nationwide policing strategy, focused on increasing the presence of police to reduce offending related to alcohol and drugs, youth and family and organised crime. “We’ve transferred 56 police to the programme and having more police out and about in the community has definitely deterred offenders. “The national target is a 13 per cent drop in crime so we’re well on the way to achieving that,” said Inspector Bruce. Inspector Bruce said shopping malls and swimming pool complexes in Christchurch had benefited from the proactive policing strategy. “One shopping mall saw its rate of unlawful taking drop from 22 cases to two and having extra police patrolling a swimming pool complex saw a 60 per cent drop in crime there. “Just having that presence out there is enough to deter would be criminals.” Along with being more visible in the community, Inspector Bruce said the initiative had seen more police patrolling suburban bar areas and the red zone. He said people should contact the police if they saw any suspicious activity in their community.

Building company to support St John A NATIONWIDE home building company is celebrating the opening of its two new offices in Christchurch by donating to St John. Generation Homes will donate $1000 of every house and land package sold in Canterbury to St John. “Entering the Canterbury market has always been a priority for the company regardless of the opportunities the rebuild now offers,” chief executive Kevin Atkinson said. “We want to show our commitment to Canterbury and our support of those who have been here from the beginning. St John is a charity that not only provides ambulance services throughout New Zealand, but during Canterbury’s time of need it has stood up and made a significant difference to individuals and the community.”

Mr Atkinson believed the fact Generation Homes was nationwide was the biggest asset the company could offer Canterbury. “There are concerns in Christchurch that there will not be enough experienced tradespeople for the rebuild. We have national agreements with major suppliers and installers. As a result of these agreements we are able to commit to a 14-week delivery date for a single-storey home and an 18week timeframe for double-storey homes. “Wherever possible we will work with Canterbury suppliers to support the local economy.” The company’s first show home opens in Ngai Tahu Property’s new Live-in Lincoln subdivision on July 14. A new show home in the Pegasus subdivision in the Waimakariri District will follow soon after.

New CEO for Arts Centre THE Arts Centre Trust Board has appointed André Lovatt to the position of chief executive. Mr Lovatt is currently a principal and director of international consulting engineering firm Arup, based in Singapore. The board has also recently appointed Jen Crawford to the role of chairperson. A member of the board since June 2010, Ms Crawford is a partner at Anderson Lloyd Lawyers and has 16 years’ experience in resource management law. She replaces outgoing chair, Cindy Robinson. The board was delighted to have attracted someone of Mr Lovatt’s calibre after an international search for a new chief executive, Ms Crawford said. “What’s particularly pleasing is that we have been able to bring André home to Christchurch, to focus his extensive skills and international experience on the unique demands of the Arts Centre rebuild programme,” she said. “A member of the New Zealand Historic

Places Trust, André shares the board’s belief in the importance of this iconic site and our enthusiasm for the successful restoration of the Arts Centre, which will be central to the city’s recovery effort.” Originally from Christchurch, Mr Lovatt said he knew how important the Arts Centre was to the people of Christchurch. “Many of my strongest memories involve the Arts Centre, and it is a privilege to be given the opportunity to lead the organisation during perhaps the most challenging time in its history. “The focus of the Board, management team and staff at the Arts Centre is on allowing it to reclaim its vitally important place in the lives of the people of Christchurch, and those who visit.” Mr Lovatt will take up his new position in October 2012, with outgoing director Ken Franklin remaining in an acting role until that time.

Flatting for elderly Samantha Early

FLATTING may be something you think of for students or young couples saving to buy first homes, but international organisation Abbeyfield is working to provide a flatting-style opportunity for older people in Christchurch. More than 700 Abbeyfield houses have been established worldwide since 1956 when Richard Carr-Gomm, who was shocked at the isolation and loneliness of some of London’s older people, set up a home where they could live together. The idea spread to New Zealand and 12 houses have been built here in the past two decades. Now, the first Christchurch home, incorporating 11 studio units, is planned for a site in Goulding Avenue, Hornby. For this development they are part of a non-profit consortium with the New Zealand Housing Foundation, Housing Plus Charitable Foundation and the Salvation Army. Earlier this month the Christchurch City Council approved the sale of the site to the consortium, which will build 42 units in total in a mixture of housing types. Abbeyfield Christchurch chairwoman Fenn Shaw, who works as a nurse, said the living situation provides companionship, security and independence for elderly people who may otherwise face loneliness, perhaps because their families have moved away or their friends have died. Residents pay about $320 a week, which includes cooked dinners, lunches and breakfast ingredients. The homes are open to men and women, who

are on average aged in their early eighties and live independently, like one would in a flat or student hall of residence. “It’s not health-based, it’s community-based. It offers companionship,” Mrs Shaw said. The organisation is run by volunteers with the housekeepers the only paid employees. Abbeyfield International Council chairman JB Munro said work to establish a home in Christchurch started long before the region’s earthquakes. “It has to come from the community…it’s a model that appeals to a lot of people.” Mr Munro said the challenge in the home’s design was to make sure it wasn’t institutionalised. “The design has to be reflective of who the residents are.” Mrs Shaw said in Christchurch they hoped to include a ‘man shed’ for hobbies like woodwork. Wainoni Avonside community services trust coordinator Betty Chapman, who works with about 150 elderly eastern suburbs residents, said she would love to see something like Abbeyfield in Christchurch. “It would diminish the loneliness of some of them and I think it would diminish the depression.” Mrs Chapman said it was important the facility was located close to a recreation centre and she would like to see something similar in east Christchurch. Abbeyfield held its nationwide annual meeting in the city last weekend.

South City being refurbished Christine de Felice

A $3 MILLION refurbishment programme is underway at South City. The current work includes replacement of the floor tiles, interior painting and replacement of the furniture in the food court. “The floor tiles have been there for 22 years [since the mall was built],” property manager of South City managers, Mantech Property Management, Geoff Barnett said. “They’re being replaced with white, clean-looking tiles. We are also putting in new tables and chairs in the food court. The ones there now have been there for 22 years.” The next stage of the refurbishment will be the installation of

new lighting and new toilets. The work is due for completion at the end of August. Most of the retail space has been leased, and management is currently in negotiation with a food court business. The temporary Central South City Library will be moving out at the end of this month. “They’ve been good for us. Trading in the mall – foot traffic and turnover – is back at pre-earthquake levels.” The owner of the mall, South City Holdings Ltd, is the first Christchurch owner the mall has had since it was built, Mr Barnett said. The company took over the ownership in June 2010.

Spending grows fastest in Canterbury region THE Canterbury region saw the fastest growth in spending in New Zealand, across the Paymark network in June, according to figures released this week. Canterbury reported an annual growth rate of 6.8 per cent, with South Canterbury just behind on 6.7 per cent, considerably higher than the nationwide growth rate for June of 5.1 per cent. Paymark head of sales and marketing Paul Whiston said the above-average growth in spending throughout Canterbury was welcome news. “We saw a sharp decline in spending following the February earthquake last year; however, June’s positive result is a heartening sign that the region may be showing signs of a recovery. “While spending in Canterbury is currently running well above earlier years, it’s important to note

that spending in the region is perhaps still five to 10 per cent behind where it may have been without the earthquakes,” Mr Whiston said. “If we look at first-half year spending through the Paymark network nationwide in 2012, compared with four years ago when we were experiencing the onset of the global financial crisis, we’ve seen 12.2 per cent growth. If you compare that with the growth since 2008 in the Canterbury region, it sits at just 4.4 per cent.” By contrast, Auckland/ Northland’s four-year growth was higher than the national average at 14.8 per cent, while Wellington saw a 9.3 per cent increase. “This suggests that there’s still a way to go for the region to catch up, and after visiting Christchurch last week and speaking to several business people, there are still some sectors doing it tough,” Mr Whiston said.

City to host Olympians’ return Chris Tobin

NEW Zealand’s Olympic heroes will have their official welcome home from the London Games in Christchurch. The Olympic team’s chef de mission Dave Currie said a number of special events would be held in the city to mark the team’s return on August 24. The Olympics end on August 12. “People will be coming back from London at different times but we will be gathering everyone up and all the medallists will be part of the group.” Mr Currie said the NZ Olympic Committee thought of running a competition to decide who should host the official welcome home but it was decided Christchurch should be chosen. “We want to pay tribute to what has happened in Christchurch,” he said in reference to the earthquakes. Besides a welcome at the airport, it is expected the team members will break into different groups to visit schools, hospitals and rest homes. After being doubtful about the games facilities in London, Mr Currie said he was now impressed. Test events involving New Zealand athletes had proven successful, he said. “I’m impressed by the way London people

are engaged and excited about the games. Often when you go to the games sometimes in the city where they’re being held you don’t know they’re happening.” Mr Currie said he was confident sufficient security would be in place. “It has been a challenge for the organisers and the New Zealand government, police and the London embassy have been involved. We’ve a high degree of confidence that the organisers will provide a safe environment.” The New Zealand team has around 200 athletes - the 17th-biggest at the games and 120 support staff . Mr Currie left for London last Friday; the NZ team was registered on Monday. The first NZ athletes will enter the games village on July 16; the games’ opening ceremony is on July 26 and competition begins the following day.

NZ’s 100th Olympic medal the aim IF all goes to plan, New Zealand could come home from the London Olympics with a bagload of medals – possibly its biggest ever. In the year preceding the 2008 Beijing Olympics, New Zealand had 11 athletes ranked in the top three in the world. Three gold, two silver and four bronze medals were won at the

Beijing games. Last year New Zealand had 22 athletes ranked in the top three in their respective events and sports. New Zealand Olympic team chef de mission Dave Currie was reluctant to predict how many medals New Zealand could win in London. “We’ve been going to the games for 100 years and have around 90 medals summer and winter. We’re hopeful we’ll get our 100th medal. With 22 in the top three, a lot of athletes

Official Welcome Home event Approximately 100 athletes and will be going to 12 locations around town. All team members will get onto a branded double-decker bus (and other vehicles) and be driven on a “special” route past schools and businesses as they make their way to the welcome. The Official Welcome Home will take place in South Hagley Park (Hospital

are in the frame. “Our job is to make it possible and give the athletes the opportunity to perform.” He said history had shown that if you became “fixated” on winning medals, there was the danger of falling short. New Zealand’s most successful Olympics were the 1984 games in Los Angeles when eight golds were won (11 in total). The biggest medal haul was at Seoul in 1988 (13 medals, three of them gold). Corner) from noon to 12.20pm. From 12.30pm to 1.30pm the NZ Olympic Team athletes will split up, with half going out into the community and the other half staying in the park, and joining in with different activities including rowing, football, running relays, inflatable boxing, signing session and photo booth. Fifty two schools (3460 students) will take part in primary school sport on a Friday afternoon in Hagley Park.

New infant formula Success for being launched in New Christchurch pair at Singapore Zealand and China Garden Festival CHRISTCHURCH-based company Carrickmore is launching its infant formula in both New Zealand and China this month. This launch will highlight both New Zealand’s strict food safety laws and clean green reputation. “There are Chinese-owned and a few New Zealand-owned milk powder companies selling New Zealand-originated infant formulas. However, the fact we’re selling formula made from fresh New Zealand milk to our children as well as those in the rest of the world, shows the confidence we have in our product,� co-founder and former consultant obstetrician, Dr Richard Claridge, said. “We are pleased to have a New Zealand product which is safe, nutritious and truthfully labeled. Following a thorough testing process, Carrickmore Infant Formula has met New Zealand and Chinese regulatory requirements. We will launch Carrickmore Infant Formula in Christchurch on July 12 and in Shanghai on July 18. The first shipment leaves for China on July 13. “We are pleased to launch Carrickmore Infant Formula – we know we have a worldclass baby formula developed with a focus on nutrition and child development. For us this is part of a long commitment. We have undertaken significant levels of research, developed a Memorandum of Understanding

with the University of Canterbury to research maternal and neonatal nutrition and we have developed a range of complimentary products including a Cod Liver, Flax and DHA and ARA oil capsule range.� Both Dr Richard Claridge and Chris Claridge will be in Shanghai to launch Carrickmore Infant Formula at the 12th Shanghai Children and Baby Maternity Products Expo (CBME 2012) on July 18. The CBME Expo includes 103,500 square metres of space, 1200 exhibitors from all over the world, with 1900 brands represented and more than 90,000 buyers attending. Trents Wholesale Limited, a subsidiary of Foodstuffs South Island Limited, has been chosen as the South Island distributor for the product. Gentech Food, based in Guangzhou and Shanghai has been appointed Master Distributor for China. Gentech currently distributes infant products to over 600 mother and baby stores throughout China. “Fonterra Dairy Co-operative is the supplier of the milk base used in the production of Carrickmore Infant Formula, using New Zealand milk and packaged in Auckland. The strict quality control measures throughout the entire manufacturing process enable Carrickmore to guarantee the safety and integrity of our Carrickmore Infant Formula,� Chris Claridge said.

Cobham OPEN NIGHT Intermediate School

Golden touch: Andy Ellis, left and Danny Kamo in front of their award-winning garden.

THE design team of Rugby World Cup winning All Black Andy Ellis and Danny Kamo of Kamomarsh Landscape Architects have won another international design award, picking up a gold award at the Singapore Garden Festival last weekend. The festival, which included 15 of the top show garden designers from around the world, was officially opened by the Singapore President, Mr Tony Tan last Friday night. Up to 400,000 people were expected through the indoor venue to view the exhibit over the following nine days. Ellis and Kamo’s earthquake-inspired garden tells the Maori myth of Ruaumoko, the God of Earthquakes. “We hope to give the public an insight into the effect of Christchurch earthquakes, and a sense of the enthusiasm and motivation surrounding the rebuild and the future of the city,� Mr Ellis said. The design team worked with Weta workshops to create the main centrepiece to the exhibit, a 10m x 4.5m-high cave that has the ability to shake and move. “Working with Sir Richard Taylor and the

Weta team was an absolute privilege. What they achieved was beyond our wildest dreams.� Mainfreight helped ship the structure over to Singapore where Kamo and a local construction team re-constructed the cave and planted out the display. “Due to climate and finance we weren’t able to ship New Zealand native plants over here so we had to use local plant material to represent a native bush scene from home. It looks fantastic and a bit of bird call audio taken from Christchurch’s Port Hills gives it further meaning,� Mr Kamo said. Lighting expert Andrew Frazer from Stellascapes in Wellington designed and installed the light and sound show. “What this guy can do with lights is freakish,� Mr Ellis said. The duo, who have also won awards at the Ellerslie International Flower Show, weren’t sure what show they would tackle next. However, Mr Kamo said his company’s main focus was on helping out with the planning and design of the Christchurch rebuild. “The priority is home, but if another show comes along, who knows.�

Beyond borders: human trafficking

Last month the world’s most comprehensive resource of governmental anti-human trafficking efforts US Trafficking in Persons Report 2012 was released. In it, New Zealand was rated a source country for under-age sex trafficking and a destination country for labour trafficking in both men and women. Among the recommendations, the report suggests New Zealand needs to increase its efforts to investigate and prosecute sex and labour traffickers, employment recruitment agencies and employers who subject workers to debt bondage. But as reporter Tania Butterfield found out when she visited the Czech Republic earlier this year, it is not as easy as it sounds. and one that is making prosecuting traffickers difficult, Mrs Sladkova said. “For women, trafficking could have more impact on their psychological wellbeing, but when we talk about men who are trafficked for labour purposes mainly, they don’t feel like victims. They don’t take it as trafficking, they take it as bad luck and say ‘next time I will go for a better company.’ It’s hard to explain to them they have rights.” In 2004, the definition of human trafficking moved the emphasis off transportation and placed more weight on a person’s vulnerability. The definition also incorporated trafficking for the purposes of labour exploitation – something that has been on the rise in the Czech Republic since the 2008 financial crisis. Migrant workers who entered the country

IT was a Friday afternoon when the Head of International Organisation for Migration in Prague, Lucie Sladkova, received a call from the Belarussian consulate. They had a man who was concerned his friends had been killed by their employer. Mrs Sladkova said, “He had been locked in some cottage. He worked in central Bohemia but he wasn’t getting paid and he had lost his friends. Their belongings were still in a plastic bag and he was afraid they had been killed. “I said, ‘You know you were probably trafficked’ and he said ‘Well, they cheated me, yes, that’s true, but trafficking, no. It was just bad luck.’ He did not feel like a victim.” It is a common response from men when informed the breach of human rights they have experienced amounted to trafficking,

h

prior to 2008, some 426,000 according to IOM, were the first to lose their jobs when the financial crisis hit the Czech Republic. While 2000 people, mainly Mongolians, returned to their home country, many others stayed behind and put themselves in a position to be exploited by traffickers, Mrs Sladkova said. “They became vulnerable in the way that some agencies – fake agencies, labour agencies created by people who were crooks - exploited these people.” There are two problems in the Czech Republic in trying to prosecute labour traffickers. The first being the “labourers” who are being exploited do not recognise or acknowledge that their situation is trafficking and therefore will not testify about it. The second is that there is no case law in the Czech Republic which clearly states the difference between trafficking and exploitation. Last year, the Czech judiciary heard a case which anti trafficking NGO La Strada claimed exemplified “the essence of human trafficking” and was “the most extensive known case regarding labour exploitation

and human trafficking for reasons other than prostitution”. Hundreds of Vietnamese and other migrant workers worked for a subcontracting company in the Czech forests. The company, Affumicata, paid the first month’s wage but after that the workers’ salaries were delayed and eventually not paid at all. Affumicata exploited the workers’ vulnerability, La Strada Czech Republic director Irena Konečná said. They had lost their jobs at the start of the financial crisis and needed the work to stay in the country. However, the court deemed the case to be exploitation, not trafficking. La Strada Czech Republic is now tackling the judicial problem head-on in a United Nationsfunded project to define what trafficking for forced labour and labour exploitation means according to legal institutions in the Czech Republic and other EU countries. Working alongside the Judicial Academy and the Interior Ministry, La Strada is collecting judgements on labour trafficking cases heard in EU countries and analysing what the decisions may mean for the Czech Republic. The 2009 Diamond City case in the Netherlands could be the key precedent the Czech Republic needs to convict perpetrators of labour trafficking, she said. A group of Chinese migrants went to the Netherlands without documents. They couldn’t speak Dutch and they had no money. They approached the owner of a Chinese restaurant who gave them food and shelter in exchange for their labour. They were there voluntarily and could leave at any time. Initially the case was deemed not to be trafficking but the Supreme Court disagreed and eventually the owner was convicted of trafficking. “The judge recognised these people were so vulnerable that the owner abused that position of vulnerability in order to exploit them, which is a crucial point, and I would like to see if the judges would work like this in the Czech Republic,” Ms Konečná said. There are three cases of labour trafficking before the Czech courts and La Strada hopes that by the end of 2012, the line between labour trafficking and exploitation will be properly defined.

Top role for airport CEO New Antarctic Centre manager

CHEAPER THAN YOU KNOW WHO...

DARE TO COMPARE Mr Boult has been in his Christchurch Airport role since February 2009 and was a crown appointee to the CIAL board for six years before that. In 2010 he was named Airport Personality of the Year by the New Zealand Airports Association.

New role: Nicki Sare started her new role as manager of the International Antarctic Centre this month. She moved to the tourist attraction from the role of marketing manager commercial at Christchurch Airport and has more than 14 years’ industry experience in sales and marketing management roles in accommodation, transport, attractions and wholesale/retail gifts. She spent more than eight years as national sales and marketing manager for Thrifty Car Rental New Zealand. After completing an MBA part-time last year, she is rediscovering leisure activities such as running, mountain biking and reading books which are not on a reference list. Photo: Supplied.

Heritage Park makes progress Tania Butter-

PLANS for an Ellesmere Heritage Park are well underway with the lease agreement with the Selwyn District Council for a piece of land expected to be finalised this month. Ellesmere Heritage Park Trust steering committee chairman John Winchester said the heritage park was a big project and “it’s not going to happen over night”. “We’ve got a shed and we’ve got to put a security system and lighting in place. It will probably take at least three months setting up plans because we don’t want to make mistakes,” he said. The trust members would spend some time looking at how other museums were set up and planned to visit museums in Geraldine, Timaru, Oamaru, Ferrymead Historic Park, Canterbury Museum and Te Papa. “There’s a lot of offers of help [from other museums] to help us set it up and do it right.” The 1.4 hectare Selwyn District Councilowned land will have two open sheds and a large shed which will be used for the main features. “The long-term plan would probably be to move some old buildings, like old houses, [to the heritage park] and have a little street, kind of like Ferrymead [Historic Park], but it won’t be as big as Ferrymead,” Mr Winchester said. The project has been well received by the public. “We’re getting a lot of phone calls offering us help to raise money. “We got given two very old ploughs from the Ploughing Association and some old mowers and a rake. There’s been a lot of books donated to us for the library, and old machinery and drills from the Historic Society. We’ve got a number of old clothes the settlers wore, wash basins and all these little trinkets have been collected. There’s a lot of stuff on offer, which is really good,” Mr Winchester said.

Great Winter Fashions

All coming together: John Winchester at the site of the future Ellesmere Heritage Park with his own 1930 Ford Model A Coupe, which may be temporarily displayed at the park. Photo: Tom Doudney

The trust intends to hold a public open day at the site late-August or early-September for people to see what the project is about and offer ideas as to what they would like to see at the park. After the open day, the trust will hold a public meeting to organise volunteers and establish working committees, he said. The cost of the project is unknown, but a local Selwyn resident has donated about 300 squaremetre bales, which will be sold for $40 each with funds going toward the heritage park. All going well, the heritage park should open some time next year.

CHIEF Executive of Christchurch International Airport Jim Boult has been appointed chair of the New Zealand Airports Association. His tenure will commence on August 1, and continue for the next 16 months. The current chair, Auckland International Airport chief executive Simon Moutter, is standing down due to his appointment as the new chief executive of Telecom. Mr Boult said airports were facing a number of important challenges. “On top of the rapid technological change at airports there are dramatic shifts in world travel trends due to the steady growth in Asian economies and the potential numbers of travellers to this part of the world. The changing age profile of travellers is also resulting in many more older people who will have the time and resource to travel. The world’s airports are adapting to these changes,” he said.

Olympic experience,” Mr Loader said. He told the children, who were aged between eight and nine, his passion for swimming started when he was little. He loved spending hours in the bath, but it took him 12 years of serious training to win his medals. He said they were all heroes and any one of them could be an Olympic champion, or the best in the world at what they enjoyed doing. “How good or how bad they are at this very moment doesn’t really mean anything because they have a long time to get better at it and they’ll only get better if they practise each and every day,” he said. The London Olympics start on July 27.

THEY weren’t even born when Danyon Loader thrillingly won the 200 and 400metre freestyle swimming races at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996, but his two gold medals still drew an awed reaction from the children at the Linwood Movers holiday programme. The Olympian visited Christchurch as part of the ANZ Olympic Town Tour, in which famous New Zealand athletes accompanied a doubledecker London bus kitted out with iPads so people could send messages of support to this year’s team. Visitors to the bus could also test themselves against Olympic athletes in rowing and cycling. “It’s quite fun because it exposes kids to an

Lifetime memories: Sea Cadets and Christ’s College students Myles McMillan, left, and James Keleghan travelled to London for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. Photo: Tom Doudney

Sea Cadets reflect on ‘incredible’ experience Samantha Early

REPRESENTING their country at The Queens Diamond Jubilee Pageant in London last month was a special experience for two Christchurch 16-yearolds. The two students, Myles McMillan from Halswell and James Keleghan from Riccarton, who are both in Year 12 at Christ’s College, were among a New Zealand Maritime Youth Organisations crew of about 12 to take part in the international 1000 boat pageant on the Thames River on June 3. “It was very special…there were thousands of people lining the streets as

at Halswell

you go past and they’re all into it, dressed up with flags and cheering the whole time in the rain and the wind,” Myles said. James saw the pageant from the banks of the Thames; he missed out on rowing as he was the reserve but said even watching it was an incredible experience. “It was a pretty miserable day but there were hundreds of people lining the banks and bridges.” James grew up in the United Kingdom and said it was an odd feeling going back after five years. His highlight was meeting the Prime Minister before the rowers took off.

Myles said having so many boats and people there to celebrate The Queen’s 60year reign was surreal. “Something like this isn’t going to happen for a long time, with [Princes] Charles, then William; by the time they get to 60 years they will be pushing it a bit so it’s not going to come around for a few more lifetimes.” He also enjoyed making friends with the other New Zealand group members. Myles said he was now trying to further his leadership with the Sea Cadets while James was also carrying on with the group and focusing on his studies.

Science fun at Thorrington THORRINGTON School student Alex Sheppard presents his findings on which acid reacts the best to make a volcano effect at the school science fair late last month. Teacher Carl Scurr said the students had to come up with a scientific question they could test and create a hypothesis, for which they then had to collect data to prove/ disprove it. “Our science fair is the result of the enthusiasm for science in year six after Term 1 when we ran the Science Award programme,” he said. Parents and community members were invited to have a look at the projects. Photo: Supplied

Encouraging results from Christchurch swimmers A SOLITARY point was the difference between second and third place for the New Zealand team at swimming’s Trans Tasman Tri Series, held in Australia last week. The team of 12 swimmers, including five from Christchurch, won eight races over the final two tests in the biennial event but the two Australian teams, Green and Gold, were in compelling form for the final day of the gruelling six-day series, which was held in three venues, Canberra, Wagga Wagga and Melbourne. Christchurch 17-year-old Matthew Hutchins from the Wharenui club had a successful series, winning 12 of his 13 individual events and setting three Trans Tasman meet records along the way. Hutchins led the way with four wins in the final two tests, claiming the 100-metre (50.79), 200-metre (1:50.73) and 400-metre freestyles (3:55.38) as well as the 200-metre individual medley (2:04.59). Fellow Christchurch swimmer George Schroder from AquaGym won three events including the 200-metre breaststroke (2:18.76).

The five Christchurch swimmers to take part were Hutchins, William Campbell (Wharenui), Caitlin Rennell (Jellie Park), Schroder (AquaGym) and Brittany Tucker (QEII). The team returned to New Zealand on Monday.

Changes introduced Warm favourite wins the trophy for cup week

n s

Winner of the Buy Sell & Exchange New Zealand Stayers Cup, Platinum Playboy, with his trainer Steve Clark, right, after taking out the race at last Friday night’s greyhound meet at Addington Raceway. Platinum Playboy was the warm favourite after winning his heat last week. Also pictured are from left, Peter Hampton, advertising sales manager, Mainland Press, Sarah Cottle, Wayne Scott and Pier Smulders, managing director Mainland Press.

NZ cup holder: Terror to Love in winning form.

TWO changes are being made for this year’s cup week race meetings at Addington Raceway. Firstly, a ranking system is being introduced to determine the field for the Christchurch Casino New Zealand Cup, which will be run on Tuesday, November 13. Previously, the field has been determined by the inclusion of the automatic qualifiers with the balance selected by the New Zealand Metropolitan Trotting Club board from the list of final acceptors. A four-member ranking panel will decide on the final field for the race. Last year’s cup winner, Terror To Love, is at the top of the rankings. Nominations close on August 31 and initial rankings will be available on September 5. The other change is on the distance for the Free-For-All, which is run on Canterbury Anniversary Day, the Friday of cup week. It

will revert to one mile (1609 metres), having previously been run over 2000 metres. The race will start from the mobile barrier, with a maximum of 10 starters plus one emergency. The first six place-getters from the Christchurch Casino New Zealand Cup race and the winner of the NRM Sires’ Stakes Three-Year-Old final, also run on cup day, will have automatic entry to the Woodlands New Zealand Free-For-All. “We’ve been thinking of this concept for some time now and it’s been a while since we’ve staged a flying mile at Addington. Only the best pacers competing at the time will be eligible given the criteria, and this coupled with an attractive bonus should ensure the sparks are flying,” Addington’s racing manager Brian Rabbit said. The New Zealand record for one mile for a pacer, 1.52.1, is held jointly by Smolda and Kiwi Ingenuity.

nviro Master Ltd are your air conditioning and heat pump specialists and have been servicing the Christchurch area for over 10 years now. Currently in Christchurch, there are a number of secondhand heat pumps being sold. Enviro Master would like to warn you that a number of these systems have not been removed professionally, resulting in high reinstallation costs and in some cases, they are not able to be reinstalled at all. A system can be removed and relocated to another location provided they are removed professionally and sized and positioned correctly for the new location. Failure to

do this can result in poor performance and costly repairs. With winter now upon us, now is the best time to have Enviro Master assess your home or workplace and give you expert advice on your heating requirements. Enviro Master supplies, installs and services all the leading brands including Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means our team can show you which system and brand will best suit your needs in either your workplace or home. Enviro Master are qualified engineers which enables us to service any brand of heat pump. We can check your heat pump

to ensure that it is working as effectively and efficiently as possible, resulting in a healthy, hygienic heat pump, lower power bills and greater comfort. It is important to remember, when selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s warranty does not cover the installation and consumers could be responsible for any repair or damage caused to the system due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation and a demonstration so customers have an understanding on how it will best meet their needs. Our installations are covered for five or six years to coincide with the manufacturer’s warranty. We currently have savings of up to $500 on selected models. For a free in-home consultation, call Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd, Waltham, Christchurch.

PIZZA fix at Rockys Pizza

S

elwyn district pizza lovers looking for a feast of pizza and pasta with a difference could not do better than Rockys Pizzas and lunch bar at Roberts Street in Lincoln. Just off the main street, at 9 Roberts Street, Rockys Pizzas has 22 different varieties of pizza, all distinctively named after characters in the Rocky movies and with names like The Rocky, Stallone, Sylvester, Eye of the Tiger, it’s clear where the inspiration came from. Among the range are traditional pizzas such as Hawaiian and meat lovers while Rockys special gourmet pizzas are all named in the movie themes. There are also 15 different types of pasta for those who prefer their carbohydrate in that style. There are also gluten-free options. Ross Baldwin (nicknamed Rocky) is a huge fan of Sylvester Stallone and the Rocky character. As well as the pizza titles reflecting that, he has decorated the waiting room with Rocky-character-posters and statues and tigers. It’s definitely a pizza place with a difference. There’s also black furniture in the waiting area – sofas in particular. Owner Ross has some solid advice for local pizza and pasta lovers from kids to students to family people of all ages: “come and have a look and a taste at our amazing venue”. He’s convinced those who sample Rockys pizzas will like what they taste. He’s been told “they’re the best pizzas around”. Pizza bases and sauces are made by Ross, with his pizza cook Brent Jones preparing the final product. Rockys is open for pizzas from Wednesday to Sunday from 9am in the morning to 8pm or 9pm at night.

It’s also well known for its lunch bar, with food from sandwiches to pies and sweet items and is open seven days. “We have a lot of fun, but there’s a lot of passion that goes into the food. “I like food where people are going to go ‘wow’, which they do with my lunch bar and my pizzas.” Rockys Lunchbar and Pizza bar is at 9 Roberts Street near the main road through Lincoln. Phone (03) 325 2627. Cravings fix: Rockys Pizzas offer traditional and special gourmet pizzas Wednesday to Sunday.

You should see a GP as your viral infection might have become complicated with a bacterial infection which is treatable with an antibiotic. Pneumonia is an infection of the smaller airways while bronchitis is an infection of the Expe larger airways. Regarding the flu vaccine, even if you don’t fall into the risk groups it is valuable to have a flu vaccine because you help form a ‘chain of protection’ around those who are vulnerable. At-risk groups for pneumonia and flu are people 65 or over and younger people with chronic medical conditions such as emphysema, kidney disease, diabetes and cancer. For flu, pregnant women are also in the at-risk group and can get the flu vaccine for free.

Fighting back: Spread the word about these flu prevention measures but don’t spread the virus.

FABULOUS Feet at Fendalton Foot Clinic F

riendly, professional and thorough are the words commonly used by patients that attend the Fendalton Foot Clinic at 74 Memorial Avenue in Christchurch. Fendalton Foot Clinic first opened its doors 10 years ago by principal podiatrist Juliann Simeonidis. Juliann has since been joined by podiatrists’ Barbara Rennie and, more recently, Pippa Pettigrew. With over 20 years’ experience between the three practitioners, patients can rest assured that all of their painful foot and leg conditions are met with a gentle touch and the highest standard of care. “While I am taking some time out on maternity leave, it’s wonderful peace of mind, knowing that my practice is in such great hands,” says Juliann. “Both Barbara and Pippa love what they do and their rapport with patients and standard of care is exceptional. I’d like to think that we are leaders in terms of providing a thorough, professional, yet friendly foot care service to the people of Christchurch.” Receptionist Patricia Berney is an integral part of the practice and has been working with Juliann for six ERVICES: SERVICES: years. nior Senior Stylists Stylists “Pat is always ready to greet our Colour Experts Experts atments Treatments

patients with a warm welcome and is your first point of contact when making an appointment.” Pippa Pettigrew joined Fendalton Foot Clinic in March of this year. “I was drawn to podiatry as I wanted my work to be interesting, challenging and contribute to improving people’s health.” Pippa says. She has experience in treating a diverse range of foot problems, including painful corns, calluses, toenail problems (including surgery), and helping diabetics and children with foot problems. Pippa has a particular interest in treating sports injuries and is able to provide a biomechanical assessment through video gait analysis. She also has an athletic background having competed at a high level in running, cycling and multisport. This has enabled her to gain greater

understanding about the impacts that training and various sports can place on the feet and lower limb. For all your foot care needs, lower limb aches and pains make an appointment today with the team at Fendalton Foot Clinic. Phone: 03 351 6767, or email footworks@xtra.co.nz or contact them on Facebook under Fendalton Foot Clinic.

id-winter isn’t always the easiest time to get motivated to do things in the garden. But there are always a few jobs that can be done when the time or inclination hits you. Recently we have been focusing on edible crops and what to plant now in the vege garden. This week I decided to focus on flowers, what to plant and jobs that can be done now. A number of flowers bloom through winter. It is best to buy plants that have already got a few flowers on them from the garden centre, as growth is slower in the cold months and it can take a while for smaller plants to bloom.

Plant now: Calendula, snowland daisy, cineraria, nemesia, bellis, pansies, polyanthus, poppies, primula, snapdragon, stock, viola and wallflower.

Add layers of mulch to garden beds on warm dry days. Don’t apply to frozen ground as it won’t allow the soil to thaw. Mulch keeps areas tidy, weed-free and add valuable organic matter to the soil, which increases fertility and worm activity. Prune roses, shrubs and any perennials that are looking untidy. Fertilise garden beds ready for a new season’s planting by adding in compost, sheep pellets and Novatec fertiliser. Cultivate well to blend, and water well prior to and after planting. Dead head (trim off dead flowers with secateurs or scissors) to encourage a new flush or foliage and flowers. Lay Quash pellets to protect young seedlings from slugs and snails. Plant up winter baskets, tubs and window boxes. Collect autumn leaves for composting. Lift dahlia tubers and gladioli corms and store in a dry place. Bring frost tender patio plants into a sheltered position. Slow down watering of houseplants and move them away from cold draft positions.

hen location, space and design are at the forefront of your property decision making, 17 East Stream Lane will be at the top of your ‘must view’ list. Clearwater Resort is one of Christchurch’s most esteemed locations and houses some of our city’s finest new/ architecturally designed homes and this is true for my client’s exquisite property. Just one year new, this stunning fourbedroom, three-bathroom home has a superbly functional floor plan, and the absolute thoughtfulness in the very early stages of design and planning is so prevalent in the family friendly ‘gull wing’ design. With the ‘children’s’ wing accommodating two large double bedrooms and family bathroom, the ‘central body’ of the property is the stunning open plan living with an entertainer’s dream kitchen with Bosch induction hob and appliances, a capacious ‘butler’s pantry’ and classic yet contemporary all white bench top beautifully completed by the dark oak kitchen cabinetry and superior quality ‘Blum’ fixtures and fittings. The kitchen design extends to the outdoor entertainment area that overlooks the 13th green of the prestigious Clearwater Golf Resort and the fabulously sized 2298m2 section, with bi-fold sliding windows and doors that disappear to extend the kitchen bench outside for class and ease of entertaining. With dual access to two separate outdoor entertainment areas, you

will follow the sun inside to outside with effortlessness transition. The ‘adult’ wing accommodates a stunning, restful retreat that is the master bedroom with en suite that is befitting the resort lifestyle on offer, a formal lounge/media room and a large en suite guest room overlooking the golf course that will have the new owners flipping coins to decide which room they will take as their master!

They had hoped to break the record in 2010 but had to delay their attempt due to the earthquakes.

THE world of James Bond will be explored in a concert celebrating 50 years of Bond movie music at the CBS Arena in October. The Music is Bond…James Bond produced by Tim Beveridge features a cast of soloists backed by the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra (CSO). The concert will showcase the music associated with the world’s most famous spy. Beveridge said he was thrilled to be bringing the concert to Christchurch with the support from a unique mix of rock musicians, leading vocalists and classical musicians. “You don’t get much bigger than the music of Bond. Some of the world’s greatest producers and artists have created an unforgettable lineup of songs and I’m thrilled to have assembled such a talented group that are, quite simply, going to nail it.” Renowned jazz musician Caitlin Smith will be complemented by the vocal talent of Sharon Emirali, whose credits include tours with Tom Jones, Charlie Pride and the Jordinaires. Together with Beveridge, they will be joined by Cantabrian Ali Harper and Matthew Smith, lead rock vocalist of Von Voin Strum, a new Christchurch band. “It’s exciting to get a show like this off the ground and be able to bring this fantastic event to Christchurch audiences,” said

Visually, the Ford with its muscular chiselled lines is your rugged out doors type in sharp contrast to the trendy flowing lines of the BT-50, that make a fairly emphatic fashion statement. The issue here for Mazda is that most Ute want one that conforms to the market norms, rather than being a rebel with a styling cause. This is one of the reasons why the Ranger comfortably outsells the BT-50. The BT-50 comes in double, regular and Freestyle cab formats. The 3.2-litre diesel is standard across the whole range.

this road are a couple of double cab 4WD’s, one a manual the other an automatic in GSX trim, which is only one step removed from the range topping Ltd version. The manual model costs $56,895 with the automatic an extra $2,000. Like the Ford Ranger, one of the strong selling points of the BT-50 is the powerhouse 147kw 3.2 litre five-cylinder turbo diesel engine they both share. Completing its power play is a whopping 470nm of torque for some serious low-speed pulling power both on and off road. Moving to an odd number of cylinders, supposedly delivers greater smoothness and refinement than a motor with an even number of cylinders. It never fully delivered on those two fronts. At higher revs it felt lumpy and harsh and generally noisier than I expected for what is a fresh off the drawing board design. As diesel Ute’s motors go, and few I have driven recently go with the purpose and, intensity of this one, or have its ability to make light work of most heavy duty tasks. There is a lot to like about this engine. There could be even more to like if it raised its refinement levels a good notch or two and reduced its noise levels by about twice that figure. When it comes to the transmissions the excellent six-speed automatic is the way to go and automatics are becoming an increasingly popular option with the Ute buyers. The scratchy sixspeed manual stands no chance against this sort of competition. Think of the extra $2,000 for the sixspeed automatic an investment in relaxed hassle free driving. Another plus for the BT-50 is its spacious cab that packs plenty of leg and head room for both front and rear seat occupants. Both vehicles were well kitted out with all the car- like niceties expected in an upper crust Ute, including MP3 and iPod2 RRP

connectivity, cruise control and air conditioning. Mazda say they have engineered the suspension to give the comfort of a passenger car along with SUV-like handling. When you hear manufacturers talking like this, you start thinking have they lost sight of the fact this is, first and foremost a Ute. This is not one of case with Mazda, who have faithfully retained all the hard grafting qualities we expect in Ute. It is right at home hauling that bit heavy machinery between building sites to clambering up some muddy hillside, with a full load of post strainers on board. The BT50 like the Ranger, re-writes the Ute handling rule book with way it threads itself through corners so effortlessly and with such unwavering balance and composure. Bob Nettleton

McMillan: Battling Black Caps underdone for preparation Tom Doudney

FORMER Black Cap and Canterbury cricketer Craig McMillan says poor preparation is partly to blame for the struggling New Zealand team’s West Indian woes. The inexperienced team has been thrashed in all its T20 and ODI outings in the Caribbean to date, with West Indies power hitter Chris Gayle being particularly dominant. “They’ve looked under-prepared, underdone and they look like a side that is lacking confidence and they’ve almost forgotten how to win games,” McMillan said. He believed there was a lot that should have been done differently in the lead-up to the tour. With the exception of Guptill, Williamson and McCullum, most of the team had not played much cricket recently, using indoor training sessions to prepare instead. “You can do as much gym work and as much indoor net work as you like but there is no substitute for just spending time in the field and just playing, whether it be batting or bowling. “Ideally they should have gone away somewhere for seven to 10 days before the tour started, played some cricket and then they would have hit the tour running. They didn’t do that and I think they’ve been found wanting.” The fielding had been disappointing for such a young side and many players looked out of

form, although BJ Watling’s batting had been a bright spot amongst the gloom. McMillan lamented the fact that despite the two sides being at seven and eight on the ICC rankings for both ODIs and Tests, the games were not more competitive. “With plenty of cricket still left on the tour there is plenty of time left to turn that around but there is quite a big gulf between the two sides at the moment.” McMillan said finding a way to remove Gayle early in the innings would be key to the Black Caps getting themselves on the winning side of the ledger.

It’s a long time to be sitting down THE naming of the 2012 equestrian team for the London Olympics included one member who must be a true Olympic freak. When Mark Todd was named yet again, he created a dynasty that would have to be unequalled in New Zealand Olympic history. We are only a small country with not the largest talent pool to choose from to take on the world at Olympic Games. Over the years it’s fair to say it has been far too easy for our sportspeople to attend the greatest sporting event in the world. Trips for the boys not only applied to athletes and competitors, but also to the fish heads who loyally served the sport they represented. The sheer cost involved in sending a team has just about priced out a country of our size. I must applaud the New Zealand Olympic Committee for taking a serious look at just who should represent us and now the criteria is, “If you can’t make the top 16 in the world you won’t be going”. The demand for achievement by athletes and the fact that the Olympics are held on a fouryear cycle means longevity at Olympic level is becoming more and more difficult for the competitors. Mark Todd’s first Olympic Games was at Los Angeles way back in 1984 and here he is off to London in 2012. Remarkable as this is, it should

be remembered that these Olympics could, and in my opinion should, be Todd’s eighth, not his seventh. Todd was selected to be a team member at the Moscow Olympics in 1980! Not his fault he couldn’t compete, but that of a short-sighted government decision, which came about from pressure put on little old New Zealand by the “big boys” around the world at the time over a global concern none of us can even remember. Todd has, as do all the equestrian team members, a doubly difficult job so far as preparation is concerned. Not only do the riders have to prepare themselves mentally and physically for Olympic competition, they have the added responsibility of making sure the mounts that they ship around the world are at the peak of their ability. Years are put into rearing a horse capable of competing at the highest level, and so much can go wrong when you are dealing with horseflesh that many hopes are dashed prior to the games. For the tall poppy people out there who are alive and well and say it can’t be that difficult to sit on a horse and go around a course, I say think on this. Mark Todd has been a man who has dominated his sport at Olympic level for the past 32 years and if you’re not up to it or can’t expect to be in the medal hunt, then nowadays you won’t get selected for services rendered in years gone by.

so for us to get results like that, we’re pretty happy.” Canterbury Basketball office administrator Sandra French said the local support for Nelson in the girls’ final had been deafening. “That was basket for basket for the whole game - it was very, very intense.” The success of the tournament had been especially impressive given that the teams had difficulty getting gymnasium space for training after losing the use of QEII and

Cowles Stadium because of the earthquakes “That has been a struggle trying to find court space for them.” Parents may have mixed emotions about the teams’ strong performances as they will now have to come up with $750 per child for those attending the nationals. That comes on top of the $500 they already paid for the Nelson trip. Two Canterbury B teams also played in the Zone 4 Premiership.

TWO Canterbury basketball teams will represent the region in the last Under 13 Nationals after topping their respective competitions in the Zone 4 (South Island) Premiership in Nelson last weekend. The Under 13 boys coasted to victory by 111-54 in the final against Mid Canterbury, while the girls’ team had a tougher task, eventually downing hometown favourites Nelson 70-67 in front of a vocal crowd. By finishing in the top four, both teams

earned a spot in the Nationals, which will be held in Tauranga in October. It will be Basketball New Zealand’s final Under 13 tournament, with changes to the age brackets being introduced next year. Boys’ coach and Canterbury Basketball development manager Terry Brunel said the teams had been really happy with the results. “For some of them it was their first tournament ever for Basketball New Zealand,

EQC Update

Keeping you informed

Help us to help you keep warm There may still be people in our community who don’t have adequate heat to keep them warm and we need your help to find them. If you, or someone you know is suffering the cold after losing their main source of heating in the earthquakes, please call us today on 0800 DAMAGE (0800 326 243).

Steady response

Progress Report

DĞĚŝĂƟŽŶ^ĞƌǀŝĐĞ

The Earthquake Commission’s winter heating advertisements and posters (above) are prompting about ten concerned neighbours, family or friends a day to call 0800 DAMAGE to suggest the names of people who they think are suffering the cold after losing their main source of heating.

By the beginning of July, EQC and Fletcher EQR have repaired in excess of 17,500 Christchurch and Canterbury homes – more than the total number of homes in Timaru – with damage ranging from minor to severe.

Next month, EQC is introducing an independent mediation service to give customers a chance to have any disputes resolved through a mediator who has no predetermined view. The service is running in conjunction with the Arbitrators’ and Mediators’ Institute of New Zealand.

The campaign follows on from a highly successful drive last winter by EQC and Fletcher EQR to alert Canterbury people to the opportunity for a heat pump or solid fuel burner to replace the main source of heating lost during the earthquakes. The 2011 campaign led to the installation of 9374 heat pumps and 6434 solid fuel burners.

EQC repairs and payouts to the beginning of July amounted to $3.2 billion.

If you feel you need to access this free mediation service for your claim, please visit the EQC website at Canterbury.eqc.govt.nz. Questions relating to apportionment of claims will not be covered by mediation.

Flu rates skyrocket

Beating the flu: Immunisation is the best way to prevent the spread of influenza, says Canterbury District Health Board medical officer of health Dr Alistair Humphrey.

Gina McKenzie SKY-ROCKETING influenza rates in Canterbury have yet to peak with another wave expected to hit as students return to school, according to Canterbury District Health Board virologist Dr Lance Jennings. Last week, Canterbury’s average rate leapt to 50 cases per 100,000 people which was more than double the national average of 20 cases per 100,000. The increase was linked to people living in crowded conditions, post earthquake. Influenza A (H3N2), influenza B and swine flu (H1N1), along with other viruses causing severe respiratory infections in young children, were hitting the region hard with over 90 people currently in isolation in Christchurch Hospital. Dr Jennings said children clustered together in classrooms

and those living in overcrowded cold homes could push flu rates even higher over the coming months. “I expect that this flu outbreak will peak in about four to six weeks time which will be just after children return to school. “Children with the flu could easily spread this among their classmates if they have picked it up during the break. “We also have influenza B circulating so we could see an increase over several more months.” Dr Jennings described influenza as the “straw that breaks the camel’s back” with around 400 nationwide per year attributed to flu-related complications. “When people are living in overcrowded cold conditions such as those we have seen post-earthquake they can become more susceptible to illnesses such as influenza.”

High rates of unimmunised youth were also driving the spread of flu according to Canterbury District Health Board medical officer of health Dr Alistair Humphrey. Dr Humphrey said it was disappointing that only 12 percent of under-18-year-olds had received the free flu vaccination this year compared with 25 percent when it was introduced last year. “We started this free programme in Canterbury to combat the spread of viruses in cold overcrowded houses after the earthquakes.” Dr Humphrey urged all Cantabrians to get immunised to prevent the further spread of influenza this winter. The flu vaccine is free to under-18-year-olds in, over 65s, pregnant women and those with a chronic illness until July 31.

Extreme south: Southshore film-maker Anthony Powell at the South Pole.

GinaMcKenzie

SPENDING a decade in Antarctica has provided Southshore film-maker Anthony Powell with a rare insight into the lives of those who call the icy continent home. Mr Powell raised over $50,000 from the Kickstarter online funding platform for his film Antarctica – A Year on Ice which will premiere at the New Zealand Icefest in September. A year-long contract as a telecommunications technician at Scott Base became a 10-year adventure for Mr Powell, who had always been fascinated by Antarctica. “I started off filming time-lapse shots in 2003 to document my experience and it grew from a hobby into something bigger. “I also met my American wife there and our love for Antarctica saw us returning each year.” Mr Powell said his film provided an inside glimpse into what it was like to live at the bottom of the planet for an entire year. “It’s not the usual scientific documentary but is told from the perspective of those who work and live in Antarctica. “The winter footage gives people something completely new.”

Mr Powell described winter conditions in Antarctica as “extreme” with few people remaining once temperatures plummeted to -60 degrees Celsius. “In the summer you have over 1000 people at Scott and McMurdo bases but that drops down to just over 100 in the colder months.” Antarctica was a life-changing experience for Mr Powell, who described the isolated lifestyle as a “monastic experience”. “Being there makes you realise that you don’t miss or need material things. “Instead you end up having amazing Three amigos: Film-maker Anthony Powell collected a huge variety of wildlife snaps during his decade in Antarctica. conversations with people who have a real sense of adventure.” In 2003 Mr Powell compiled a 20-minute Interest in the film had already been expressed clip of Antarctica’s changing seasons, which from overseas and Mr Powell hoped to show formed the basis for his film. the film at other festivals after its premiere at “I gradually added to the footage and in 2007 September’s Icefest. I received funding from the National Science “I’m really looking forward to sharing my Foundation in America so I could concentrate Antarctic experiences with as many people as just on filming for a summer.” possible because it is such an incredible place.”

Kaiapoi study examines post-quake connections Gina McKenzie

STRONG post-earthquake connections between Kaiapoi residents and their community have been uncovered by post-graduate geography student Kimberley Tanner during her research project. The Canterbury University student is interviewing current and former Kaiapoi residents whose land had been zoned either red or green and the impact this had on their relationship with both their home and local community. Ms Tanner, who is originally from Auckland and now lives in Kaiapoi, said while she was only in the early stages of her research she had made some interesting findings. “A lot of people have said that they have noticed a positive change in Kaiapoi since the earthquakes. “People stop and chat to each other more than before, and after going through a natural disaster like this research has shown that there tends to be a feeling of collective history.” Ms Tanner had also discovered differing opinions among those who were red-zoned, some of which surprised her. “I think one of the biggest surprises for me was that I assumed that most people would have negative reactions to being red-zoned but some people have just accepted it and moved on.” Once her research project was completed, Ms Tanner hoped it would provide a deeper personal understanding of the human reaction to earthquakes. “I hope to be able to show some of the underlying nuances which will illustrate the changes that have occurred between people and their community as a result of the earthquakes.” Ms Tanner is inviting current and former

Special surprise: Twelve-year-old Trinity Christie of North New Brighton School was completely surprised to receive a Sir Peter Blake Young Leader Award at a recent school ceremony. She was presented with the award by New Brighton Westpac bank manager Graeme Soper and North New Brighton School principal Brian Walkinshaw.

Community links: University of Canterbury postgraduate student Kimberley Tanner is investigating changes in Kaiapoi residents’ relationship with their local community after the earthquakes.

Kaiapoi residents to contact her if they wish to be interviewed as part of her project. “They should be current Kaiapoi residents living in the green or red zones or residents who lived in Kaiapoi prior to the earthquakes.” People who are interested in participating in a 30 to 40 minute interview for the project can contact Ms Tanner by emailing kat80@uclive. ac.nz or phoning 03 327 0336.

Trinity was one of 163 young leaders from across New Zealand to receive the award, which recognised outstanding leadership in both schools and the community. North New Brighton School deputy principal Helen Parata said nominating Trinity, who is also a school ambassador, for the award was an easy decision. “She is wonderful and always helps out around the school without being asked so we’re very lucky to have her around. “Trinity answers phones, helps out in the office before and after school and deals with students who come to the sick bay.” Ms Parata described Trinity as an “amazing role model” for the entire school, who was

good quality sections for red-zoners. To take part and purchase a section, prospective buyers must be, or have been, a homeowner in one of the red zones. Buyers must become members of the cooperative company Dunns Crossing Cooperative Company Limited, which is currently being incorporated. This company will then carry out the development under the umbrella of the registered charitable trust Canterbury Cooperative Land Trust. The process requires a series of payments to the development. On completion the title will be transferred to the purchaser. Formal documentation will be provided in early August, which will outline the detail on the process. Purchasers can register their interest in the sections by emailing ( see www. canterburyaffordablesections.org.nz for details) or in writing to the Trust (c/o Malley & Co, P O Box 1202 , Christchurch 8140) with their name, address and choice of section. Sections will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

“Most of the participants in our Aranui course have had severe damage to their houses. Some have had to move and others are waiting for decisions. “Supporting them to be more independent with respect to their meals has given them something in their life which they can control.” The sessions involved nutrition education and a hands-on cooking class followed by a shared meal with food cooked that day. For more information about the Senior Chef cooking programme email senior.chef@ cdhb.health.nz, call (03) 337 7781 or visit the website www.seniorchef.co.nz.

COOKING classes are helping older people living in earthquake-affected areas of the eastern suburbs to get back on their feet. Senior Chef has been running sessions in Aranui to teach practical cooking skills, meal planning, budgeting, shopping tips and good nutrition for older people living alone or with one other person. The free programme is a joint initiative run by the Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) in partnership with Presbyterian Support. Presbyterian Support social worker Jo Sharpe said the sessions had been especially helpful for older people severely affected by the earthquakes.

EIGHTEEN sections starting from $113,000 are now available to red-zoners. The initiative was set up last year by the Canterbury Cooperative Land Trust in response to the lack of affordable sections available after the earthquakes. The first stage of the development in Dunns Crossing Road, Rolleston is a 1.5ha 18 lot subdivision, with prices ranging from $113,000 for a 570 m² section to $139,000 for a 1,080 m² section. Trust backer councillor Glenn Livingstone described the initiative as “rare good news for red-zone residents”. “The Trust has worked long hours in a voluntary capacity to get these sections up and running. This development will be our template going forward for further affordable sections.” The section costs were reduced using a cooperative structure to carry out the development and avoid some of the usual costs. This resulted in savings of 25 to 40 percent or about $30-40,000 per section. Property developer and trustee Grant MacKinnon said the development would provide

Dr Humphrey said it was disappointing that only 12 percent of under-18-year-olds had received the free flu vaccination this year compared with 25 percent when it was introduced last year. “We started this free programme in Canterbury to combat the spread of viruses in cold overcrowded houses after the earthquakes.” Dr Humphrey urged all Cantabrians to get immunised to prevent the further spread of influenza this winter. The flu vaccine is free to under-18-year-olds in, over 65s, pregnant women and those with a chronic illness until July 31.

Potato pig stuns growers

Pig surprise: Redwood resident Dorothy Dew and her husband have been growing potatoes at their home for about 30 years but had never come across any unusual growths – until now. Two weeks ago, Mr Dew dug up two potatoes from their crop to make baked potatoes for lunch only to find that one resembled a Kunekune pig. Mrs Dew said she kept the potato pig in an ice-cream container and over the weeks noticed its ‘tusks’ growing bigger. “It’s quite cute,” she said. “We’ve never had any unusual potatoes like that before.” Photo: Tania Butterfield

Youth fund criteria to change TaniaButterfield

THE Fendalton Waimari Community Board will be re-examining its criteria for Youth Development Fund after it had to revoke its decision to give money to four students going to Melbourne for an orchestral tour. The four Burnside High School students were part of the school’s orchestra, who will be touring Melbourne from October 26 to November 7. The students will perform concerts, attend recitals by professional orchestras and participate in various workshops. The applications for funding were considered at the June 12 board meeting. Chairwoman Val Carter said the community board members had a lengthy discussion about whether to approve the funding for the students. “We were very nervous about it in the first instance. I think we were worried that it was

an orchestra and the numbers [of people in the orchestra],” Mrs Carter said. The Youth Development Fund application form does not require applicants to say how many people are participating in the event they request funding for. After the meeting, where the community board resolved to give the students $200 each, council staff found out there were 67 students in the orchestra, the majority of whom lived in the Fendalton Waimari ward. Applications for funding from other students in the orchestra had also started to come through. In light of the information, the community board decided to revoke the funding at its July 2 meeting. “It was a real botch up from beginning to end.

“When you get these applications we take them at face value and we didn’t realise there would be so many applicants. All 67 of them could possibly apply and I think we have got to treat them fairly all the way through. “It was just a muck up. We couldn’t finance that many students,” Mrs Carter said. On June 12, the community board only had $950 in its Youth Development Fund. The students had not been informed their funding had initially been approved, and council staff had approached the school to discuss submitting a group application for funding instead of individually, she said. “It’s extremely unusual [to revoke funding]. We basically did it to be fair to all these students and to be fair to other students in the future. We just couldn’t do this for every school that came to us. We’re Continued on page 3

The cycling scene with Paul Odlin

paul@christchurchcyclecoaching.co.nz

The dreaded “i” word THE recent decision by the Australian Olympic Committee to ban their athletes from taking sleeping pills at the London Olympics has stirred mixed responses. As an athlete, I wanted to share my two cents worth. Personally I don’t agree with the AOC and I do with New Zealand’s Olympic committee in not following suit. I also thought it worth raising what effect the lack of sleep has on performance, why this is such an issue for athletes and tips on how to manage the dreaded ‘i’ word ... insomnia. Sleep is a very precious commodity to athletic peak performance, in both the mental and physical realms. Lack of sleep reduces vital recovery time (important in multi-day events), negatively impacts on cognitive performance and is a spanner in the works of optimum psychological skills. In addition, an athlete’s perception of their physical condition can be worse than it actually is due to lack of sleep.

If insomnia’s impact can be such a burden to performance, then shouldn’t athletes be supersleepers? Yes, they need to focus on doing everything to facilitate a good night’s sleep but exactly why this is hard to achieve at the Olympics is down to two things. They are the insomniac’s cocktail of longhaul flights, jet lag and time-zone changes and performance anxiety of either a once-in-fouryear pinnacle-of-their-sport or worse, a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity. Management of insomnia is vital for athletes. If the aforementioned performance anxiety is responsible, finding the root of the cause rather than resorting first to sleeping pills is best practice. Additional psychological skills and generic recommendations for achieving good sleeping habits should be implemented and Lifetime memories: Sea Cadets and Christ’s College students Myles McMillan, left, and James seeking professional advice (I’ve just been to Keleghan travelled to London for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Sea Cadets reflect on Deserving women get free make over ‘incredible’ experience SamanthaEarly

REPRESENTING their country at The Queens Diamond Jubilee Pageant in London last month was a special experience for two Christchurch 16 year olds. Myles McMillan from Halswell and James Keleghan from Riccarton, who are both in Year 12 at Christ’s College, were among a New Zealand Maritime Youth Organisations crew of about 12 to take part in the international 1000 boat pageant on the Thames River on June 3. “It was very special … there was thousands of people lining the streets as you go past and they’re all into it, dressed up with flags and cheering the whole time in the rain and the wind,” Myles said. James saw the pageant from the banks of the Thames; he missed out on rowing as he was the reserve but said even watching it was an incredible experience. “It was a pretty miserable day but there

Mrs Collins was one of four women who won a make over as part of a Breeze radio station competition. Listeners were invited to nominate someone they thought was deserving of a make-over and why they were deserving. The women spent the day getting pampered. They received a new outfit to the value of $500 from Long Island Clothing, had their hair styled at Surreal Hair and Beauty and make-up done at Life Pharmacy Riccarton. While out to lunch at Bean Scene Café, the group met Richie McCaw and Dan Carter who just happened to be there by chance. They ended the day with a portrait shoot with photographer Tony Stewart.

were hundreds of people lining the banks and bridges.” James grew up in the United Kingdom and said it was an odd feeling going back after five years. His highlight was meeting the Prime Minister before the rowers took off. Myles said having so many boats and people there to celebrate the Queen’s 60-year reign was surreal. “Something like this isn’t going to happen for a long time, with [Princes] Charles, then William, by the time they get to 60 years they will be pushing it a bit so it’s not going to come around for a few more lifetimes.” He also enjoyed making friends with the other New Zealand group members. Myles said he was now trying to further his leadership with the Sea Cadets, while James was also carrying on with the group and focusing on his studies.

Community centre on the move TaniaButterfield

The temporary replacement to the St Albans Community Centre is expected to move to its Colombo Street site this week. Lions District 202E earthquake committee liaison officer Digby Prosser said the relocatable building, which has been funded through the Lions Charitable International Foundation, would be moved from North Canterbury to the former St Albans Community Centre site on Colombo Street this week. Some final internal modifications would be done on the building once it was on site, he said. “We hope that by the end of the month we will be able to hand it over to the community,” Mr Prosser said. The Christchurch City Council will manage the building. It will remain there for four to five years or as long as the community needed it, he said. “In four or five years’ time the community will decide whether there will be need to continue the life of the building or if a new facility will be under development. Should

it not be required at any point the Lions will retain ownership and put it somewhere else.” The building has three rooms, with the main area seating between 40 and 50 people. One room will be used for information technology and the other as a small meeting room. Already, community groups have made enquiries about using it, Mr Prosser said. “I’m assured by council there’s a high level of interest. We’re pretty confident it will be put to good use.” The Lions Club sees the relocatable building project as a pilot programme, and if all goes well hopes to secure funding for a second relocatable building to be used in the city. “We hope this will become a working model. We’re looking at this with a great deal of interest. “We know they [Lions Charitable International Foundation] are a generous programme. I expect we will be talking about the possibility of other sites when we have the international president here in August,” Mr Prosser said.

Youth fund criteria to change Edgeware master planning sessions well attended

Continued from page 1

dealing with rate payers’ money and I don’t think it would be fair that’s why we pulled the pin on it.” The board intends to change the application form to include the size of the group involved in the event they are applying for funding for. “That definitely needs to change. It was never disclosed. “I don’t think this would happen again; we wouldn’t let it happen again.” It was no-one’s fault that the “botch up”

happened, Mrs Carter said. “I don’t think Burnside High School did anything wrong, the council staff didn’t do anything wrong and in essence we didn’t do anything wrong. We just didn’t realise the size of the group. That will change in the future,” she said. They plan to look at the whole criteria for the youth development fund and have changes made to it formally through council within the next six to 12 months.

ENHANCING Edgeware’s village feel through the creation of a weekend market, wider footpaths and places for people to socialise are among the ideas proposed at a series of workshops and drop-in centres to discuss the future of the suburb. More than 80 people participated in the Christchurch City Council-led suburban centres programme workshops and dropin sessions on the future of Edgeware last month. District planning programme manager Brigitte de Ronde said they heard from a range of business owners, property owners, community leaders and local residents. “People liked the idea of enhancing the ‘village feel’ of Edgeware through the creation of wider footpaths, a weekend market and places for people to meet and socialise,” she said. “Other ideas included plantings and

greenery and the repair or replacement of key community facilities. Accessibility and traffic issues, including vehicle speeds, better car parking and pedestrian spaces also featured.” Mayor Bob Parker said since the council began the community sessions 14 months ago, thousands of people had put forward great ideas. “Edgeware is no exception. People from this community are eager to be involved and have their say on the rebuild and recovery of their centre,” he said. Council staff will now start the design element of the master planning process, which involves discussing how the community’s ideas could work and testing them against current best practice. The ideas and options will be presented to the community in the draft Edgeware Village Master Plan due out for consultation later this year.

Air cadet off to the US Tania Butterfield

BRYNDWR student Chari-Lee Swanson has committed the past five years of her life to the Air Training Corps. This month she will join other air cadets from around the world at the International Air Cadets Exchange in the United States. Miss Swanson, 18, has been a member of the No 38 (Wigram) squadron for two years and before that was part of the No 30 squadron in Hobsonville. “I was living in Auckland by the Whenuapai Airbase. I saw the planes fly over all the time and I wanted to be part of the action and join the air force,” she said. “My dad and grandad both have military backgrounds and they both thought it would be good for me.” Since joining, she has taken part in a wide range of leadership training courses, has led a three-day tramp and learnt first aid and navigation skills, among other things. The Year 13 Burnside High School student herself teaches core skills to members of her

squadron at their weekly Wednesday night meetings. Miss Swanson said she applied for the exchange last year by writing an essay on her involvement in the Air Training Corps and in the community and why she wanted to go to the US. She and one other New Zealander were selected to participate in the exchange. “I was really excited [to be accepted]. I was at the military base doing the Sparrow Hawk competition when the captain called. I got home and mum was like, ‘You got in!’” Miss Swanson said. “My friends were like ‘Really? Did you? Neat!’ because I get to see some of the Airforce bases in the US and do some cool stuff there.” The two-week trip will be Miss Swanson’s first time to the US. “I’m really excited about going to Disneyland and the Kennedy Space Centre where I will get to see NASA. I’m really into space so that will be extreme.”

DECISION time: Prospective students gather in the Canterbury University information hub in the central lecture theatre building during the university’s open day last week. The open days included lectures on specific subjects and degrees, tours of the campus, and social opportunities for students. Canterbury University acting community relations manager Jayne Austin said about 1000 people attended the open days. “We were delighted with the turn out. It’s a great opportunity for students to get an idea of

what’s going on at Canterbury University,” she said. The university launched its 2013 recruitment marketing campaign in May which included a television, online and billboard advertising campaign around the question ‘What if?’. Students could also receive some funding through the university entrance scholarships based on their level two and three NCEA results, which the university reintroduced to encourage students back into Christchurch.
