Battle lines drawn over skate park „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding MORE THAN 800 people have signed a petition in support of the controversial Halswell Skate Park. The petition comes after nearly 600 people signed against having a skate park established in the Halswell Domain. It was set up last month by Halswell resident Brendon Miller supporting a skate and recreation park in Halswell. Mr Miller said he wanted to demonstrate how much support there is in Halswell for

a skate park. “When I talk to people at school you get a lot of support for that. Particularly if they have got young kids,� he said. Mr Miller said signatures are still being collected, but as of last week he had about 700. The online version of the petition created last week is also growing with 159 signatures collected so far. “Outside of organised sport on Saturday morning there is not a lot for them to do by themselves outside,� Mr Miller said. Halswell resident Giarne Har-

rison, who is helping to collect signatures in support of the skate park said the petition was a good way to start a discussion. She said it was a “bit naive� to expect only Halswell residents should sign both petitions. “I gathered a couple of signatures from people who used to live in Halswell. And from people from outside of the suburb who were keen to support youth. “We already have so many people use the domain from outside Halswell.� Last month the Halswell Domain Action Group presented a

petition signed by 570 residents against the skate park to the Riccarton-Wigram Community Board. The petition presented by Halswell Domain Action Group member Wendy Gilbert said they felt the skate park had the potential to devalue properties and could introduce an element of “anti-social� behaviour. The petition was made up by 433 residents, 50 park users, 51 Model Railway Engineers members and 36 local businesses and customers. But Mrs Gilbert said the

Halswell Domain Action was not opposed to having a skate park in the Halswell area. Out of 280 submissions made to the city council, 60 per cent were in support of the Halswell Domain location as their first choice. Mr Miller said while it is best the city council decides on the location, the Halswell Domain is a popular option. A decision on the location of the skate park will be made on July 27 at an extraordinary Riccarton-Wigram Community Board meeting.

I’m a little too long in the tooth to remember watching The Little Mermaid movie, but I do like the sound of the adaptation starring former Ara Institute of Canterbury’s Rebekah Head. It is not based on the Disney classic but on the Maori story of Pania of the Reef and the exploits of her grand daughter PJ. It is on from tomorrow at The Court Theatre – perfect timing for the school holidays, check it out on page 10 and 11. What do you think of an idea to put a climbing and bouldering area in the south? Chris Brown, of St Martins, wants to get some rock climbing areas established – see if his idea got support on page 3. As I mentioned before, it is school holidays and we would love to see your photos of kids having fun. It could be at school holiday programmes or out and about. Send them through to tom.doudney@ and they may even be published. – Shelley Robinson

News Call for city climbing walls „„ By Tom Doudney TEMPORARY artificial rock climbing environments could occupy vacant land in the Spreydon-Heathcote Ward if a St Martins man can get backing for his idea. Chris Brown, a height safety technician and keen rock climber, will present his proposal to the community board on Friday in a bid to gain support. If the idea was adopted and proved a success in the ward, he hoped it would then become a city-wide initiative. Mr Brown said a lot of rock climbing areas around Christchurch and Canterbury had been closed off as result of the earthquakes. “What that has done is made a lot of the climbing spots you can get to quite busy and congested, and so everyone starts going back to the indoor gyms, which have just gone and upped their costs as well and everything is quite crowded,” he said. “So what we are trying to do is bring back that sense of community, give people a few more spots they can climb and do a bit of bouldering and also get the young ones into it.” Mr Brown said the structures

would cost between $15,000 and $20,000 each and consist of movable frames covered in shotcrete to resemble a real boulder which could be transferred from site to site as needed. He would like to see four or five in rotation around the city. “That’s not very unrealistic, especially when we spend $800,000 on a bit of art sculpture in the middle of the Avon,” Mr Brown said. The city council had two such structures already built sitting in storage. They had originally been intended for another site which was developed before they could be utilised. Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board chairwoman Karolin Potter said she found the idea very interesting and looked forward to discussing it further. Mr Brown has already won the backing of Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson who said she thought it was a great proposal. HAVE YOUR SAY: Would you like to see artificial rock climbing environments introduced in your area? HANG ON: Rock climber Chris Brown (right) will present his idea for utilising vacant sites to the Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board on Friday.

In Brief FAST FOOD OUTLETS A bid to investigate new rules limiting the ability of fast food outlets to cluster around schools and low income areas has been backed by the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board. A group including Linwood College, Linwood Avenue School, parents, Linwood Medical Centre and Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson made a deputation to the board last week, asking for its support. The board agreed to refer the matter to the city council. SUN CAUSES FIRE A Hillmorton woman came home from work to find a couch cushion on fire. The fire was started by the sun reflecting off a mirror which was lying on the couch in her Bidwell Pl house. The woman threw the cushion outside and called firefighters who used her garden hose to douse it. Addington Fire Brigade station officer Nick Brown said it was very lucky the woman had arrived home before the fire could spread. COMMUNITY BOARD APPOINTMENT Alexandra Davids will be deputy chairwoman of the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board until October’s local body elections. Ms Davids will replace former deputy Islay McLeod.

Your Local Views Let schools have a say in the siting of fast food outlets Tracie Charnock is a parent concerned about the fast food outlets being built so close to Linwood Avenue School and other schools in Christchurch. She writes about what concerns she has with this and what she wants to see change. AFTER a KFC was built straight across the road from my son’s primary school, I

thought, is this okay? You can see the building and its advertisement from the school’s classrooms and playground. And the smell is strong enough to smell from the school also. So I spoke to the principal to find that schools don’t have a say of what gets built in the

radius of a school. This to me was concerning. I put my concerns out there through the media and started a petition against fast food outlets being built in close proximity of schools. Since I started my petition back in late May, and put it out there to the media this, has been a topic of conversation with large support for. I have gathered 272 signatures to date and just started a online petition at “No Fast Food Built Near Schools.” As a parent I support healthy eating for my children and the

schools promote healthy eating in schools. Yet, I feel this is undermined when the fast food chains can build so close to a school. I feel these fast food chains are targeting young children and low decile areas, and the research seems to back it up. Researcher Peter Day and Geohealth lab co-director Dr Jamie Pearce (University of Edinburgh) conducted a study at the University of Canterbury in 2011 about fast food outlets clustered around schools. The study carried out found that fast food outlets are five and

a half times more likely to build near schools than other areas. He also found the proximity of such outlets were highest around low decile schools. Since this I have had meetings with Labour MP Ruth Dyson and we have had a delegation hearing to put our concerns to the board which has now led to a hearing with the city council. I would like a bylaw passed to stop these fast food chains from building their outlets in close proximity of schools. Or give schools a say of what gets built within a 800m radius.


Don’t leave the kitchen while you are cooking „„ By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer I’VE SPENT much of the last week in the North Island. Firstly in Rotorua, where I visited the New Zealand Fire Service training facility for the first time. It is one extremely impressive complex, with full a number of buildings providing scenarios for

training from cars to houses to commercial buildings, aircraft and ships. It’s a quantum leap from the bare concrete yard and tower that sufficed 35 years ago. While I was away, fire crews attended the normal range of incidents including, un-surprisingly, four kitchen fires. These ranged from an

overcooked chicken breast in Dallington to a full house fire in Barbadoes St last Friday. I almost despair that the message, ‘keep looking while you’re cooking’ continues to be ignored by many in our community. The result can be life shattering. One of the features of fine days at this time of year is that the sun travels low in the sky.

This provided a shock for the owner of a house in Hillmorton returning home just before 5pm on Tuesday. She found two cushions quietly smouldering away in her lounge. The setting sun was reflecting perfectly from a small concave mirror on to the couch. In this case she was lucky.

Davies departing to be involved in ‘radical’ politics

„„ By Tom Doudney DEPARTING HagleyFerrymead Community Board member Joe Davies is off to Brexit-land, but will keep in touch with grass roots politics in Christchurch for the remainder of his term. Mr Davies, 21, will leave for the United Kingdom in the next two weeks, where he hopes to become involved with “radical” politics in the wake of the country’s vote to leave the European Union. The move will also enable him to spend more time with his Swedish girlfriend Lovisa Limseth. Although he will not seek re-election in October, he has decided not to resign early, in spite of not being able to attend the last five board meetings, so that he can keep in touch with what is happening in the ward for the remainder of his term. Mr Davies said he had asked for a resolution to be passed at the next community board meeting allowing him to finish his term without picking up a salary.


In Brief STREAM RESTORATION A stream restoration project in Hoon Hay has been put on hold because one of the adjacent landowners wants to sell their property. The project involved the adjacent landowners, the Christchurch-West Melton Zone Committee, Environment Canterbury and the city council, which has bought some of the land. ECan land management advisor Shelly Washington said the project might still go ahead in future depending on available

funds and the interest of all parties involved. ON GOING ROAD WORKS Part of Sparks Rd is now oneway due to road repairs. Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team started work on the road between Hoon Hay Rd and Maryhill Ave earlier this month and the road is expected to be closed for another two weeks while repairs are carried out. Detours and traffic management will be in place.

LOVE AND COUNTRY: Departing Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board member Joe Davies will soon return to the United Kingdom where he was born. ​

“I think Brexit has provided one of the most radical opportunities for politics in my lifetime and, although I am a Kiwi, my blood is British. “I think that we need to stop wallowing in self-pity at a democratic verdict and get on with it, so I am going to return

to Europe to witness these radical times.” Mr Davies reiterated his desire to become a New Zealand MP in the future. “It has been an absolute honour to serve the people and I say with absolute certainty that I will return to New Zealand when the radical times arrive here.”

Rebekah Head

Diving deep into new role as The Little Mermaid will be visiting The Court Theatre as part of her big above-sea experience. Played by Rebekah Head, she spoke to Georgia O’ConnorHarding about playing mythical Maori character Pania of the Reef’s mermaid grand-daughter, living out of a suitcase and what she hopes to do next.

Hey Rebekah, how have the rehearsals been going? It has been a fast rehearsal process but it is a lot of fun and laughs. There are three actors. Unlike me, the other two actors get to do a lot of costume changes and swapping between other roles so I have the easy job in that sense. How come the mermaid in this show is called PJ rather than the Princess Ariel we all know from Disney? The show, adapted by Alison Horsley, has incorporated the story of Pania of the Reef. There is a statue in Napier and she is part of Maori mythology. It is a New Zealand story. So  PJ the mermaid is the grand-daughter of Pania of the Reef. It is definitely a more localised story. Have you grown up watching the Disney version of The Little Mermaid?

Definitely. Religiously. So how does it feel to be the mermaid of the show? It is very exciting and a bit nerve-racking because I think lots of people have The Little Mermaid in their head already. I am looking forward to creating my own version. Hopefully that is something people enjoy. How are you planning to portray yourself differently to The Little Mermaid we all know? Ariel was a large inspiration for the character but that is quite an American story so I have tried to make myself into more of a Kiwi mermaid. The wonderful work from the costume ladies has helped. The magnificent tails, with loads of sequins fellow actor Jane and I both wear, make it easy to take on the character. Following on from studying at Christchurch’s National Academy of Singing and Dra-

perform them for two weeks. I have been moving around Auckland, Christchurch and Hawke’s Bay in the last few months with various kids shows. Last year, I toured around New Zealand and Australia for a few months with

the New Zealand Playhouse. Would touring Australia be the main highlight since leaving NASDA? Definitely touring Australia for 10 months was a highlight. It was a crazy experience – I saw a lot of cool places. We started in Brisbane and went all the way across to Perth. We drove all the way, too. We performed high school and primary school shows. Our show for high schools was an adaptation of the Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde. Our primary school show was called Jack Flash and the Jumping Beanstalk. They were 50 minute shows and they were performed three times a day. Do you ever get tired of the performing lifestyle? No, but the performing lifestyle is a specific one. I feel like I have spent the last two years living out of a suitcase, which perhaps isn’t everybody’s lifestyle choice, but I love it and won’t be stopping anytime soon.  What was NASDA like because I hear it is tough? I think any performing school is tough. You learn a lot about yourself because it is a very vulnerable craft to be doing.

Maori-inspired little mermaid What did you learn about yourself? I suppose you learn how you behave as a person with other people when you are under a lot of pressure. There are quite a lot of time pressures at NASDA. A lot of creative art can’t be forced. You learn a lot when you are pushed to your limits. What do you enjoy about children’s shows compared to the other shows you have done? One of the most exciting things about children’s theatre is that children are the most honest audience members you are ever going to get. If they are not enjoying a show they will let you know because they will start moving around. It is exciting hearing all the things yelled out as well. What do you think about the relaxed performance for children, including those with an Autism Spectrum Condition or learning disability? I think it is wonderful they are making this show accessible for people who wouldn’t feel comfortable bringing their children to the theatre. Children are always yelling out different things so I don’t think it would be too different for us.

CHILDREN’S THEATRE: Rebekah is no stranger to performing for children. Here she is in April playing Molly in Cops and Robbers.

Tell me about the other performers in the show. In the Disney performance Eric is known as the Prince. But in our show, Isaac Pawson is playing a character called Dylan. But I wouldn’t really call him a prince. It is a modern tale of The Little Mermaid. He is just a cool guy who lives in Christchurch. Jane Leonard will be playing Pania of the Reef and Pania’s evil sister Kelpie. Pania of the Reef is a New Zealand character but

The Court Theatre was something I have always hoped to perform [for] and I feel lucky to be performing with them, so hopefully again one day. I would also like to perform for the Auckland Theatre Company. Obviously, the West End would be an amazing dream come true but it is one in the distance. I saw in on your biography you are a member of Equity New Zealand? What is that all about? Basically, it is a union for actors – somewhere to go if they need help with sorting out contracts or finding out your rights as an actor. Just making sure you are looked after. They offer free workshops to actors to extend their performing skills. I think it is important to join this support system. It is also a wonderful way to stay connected with other actors in the industry. I have been a member for two years. And last but not least, why do you think people should come

The Little Mermaid will run at The Court Theatre from July 13-23.

Fulfilling a child’s individual potential Currently Spaces il Ava able The Courtyard Montessori Preschool is community based and nestled on a quarter acre garden setting in the heart of the well-established suburb of Somerfield near the foot of the Cashmere Hills. The Preschool prides itself on embracing an authentic Montessori philosophy and method of education that places the child at the heart of its teaching. The Preschool aligns with the Principles and Strands of Te Whaariki the Early Childhood Curriculum. The Preschool has two classrooms with a mixed age range. In line with our Montessori philosophy we encourage classes of mixed age, (two and a half to six) so that children of all stages of development can work side by side in the same environment. Children progress at their own individual rhythm and pace within our non-competitive environment, while values and respect for others is at the heart of our Preschool and modelled daily in our Grace and Courtesies that are practiced in informal group situations. Our Montessori philosophical approach is distinctive in so far as it provides a unique cycle of learning

designed to take advantage of the child’s sensitive years between two and a half and six, when a child can absorb information from our enriched environment. There are periods of intense fascination that children go through for learning a particular skill and it is easier for a child to learn a particular skill during the corresponding sensitive period than at any other time. Thus, our environment and programme takes advantage of this fact by allowing the child the freedom to select individual activities, which correspond to their own periods of interest. Our environment is designed to put the child at ease by giving them freedom within an environment prepared with attractive materials within curriculum areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Maths, Language, Environmental and Art. Within any of these areas there are activities that vary from simple to complex so that each child can choose and work with activities in any area that fulfil their current interest and curiosity. The Preschool is licenced for 57 children and offers both a session based and all day programme.

Volunteer work recognised SHE EARNED IT: Spreydon teenager Storm Smith, 15, was awarded the overall merit prize at the week-long Blue Light Life Skills Camp held recently at Burnham Military Camp. She beat a strong group of young people from the South Island to take the prize which was presented to her by Blue Light operations manager Mike Jackson. Blue Light coordinator Amelia Adcock said camp staff felt Storm showed a significant and consistent improvement in attitude, selfdiscipline, self-confidence, participation and team work and was always respectful to staff and fellow course members. Blue Light runs the programme in partnership with police and the New Zealand Defence Force. It is designed to provide 14 to 17-year-olds with life-skills and leadership training. ​

Moascar Cup not St Thomas’ ST THOMAS’ of Canterbury College came agonisingly close to capturing one of New Zealand rugby’s most prestigious trophy’s – the Moascar Cup – on Saturday. The cup is school boy rugby’s equivalent of the Ranfurly Shield. St Thomas’ led cup holders Nelson College by one point going into the final moments of Saturday’s UC Championship match in Nelson. First-five Patrick Elia kicked what looked like the winning penalty for St Thomas with three minutes remaining. The team were seconds away from creating history before a penalty allowed the home side to retain the cup with a success penalty kick. “It would have been pretty massive for our school. To come up short like that was a pretty tough pill to swallow,” said St Thomas’ teacher and former rugby coach Steve Hart. Kicking was the difference. Nelson kicked five penalties while St Thomas could only covert one of their four tries. It was the forwards doing the job for St Thomas. No 8 Anetelea Vaifale, prop Jakob Mangels, lock Richmond Patea all crossed


RUN OF FORM: St Thomas narrowly missed out on claiming the Moascar Cup on Saturday. Here they are during their 32-17 win over Shirley Boys’ High School on July 2. ​

the line, along with half-back Tapu Uliano. When Nelson claimed the Moascar Cup from Timaru Boys’ High School few would have highlighted the defence against St Thomas as their toughest. Previous Moascar Cup defences against more fancied opposition, including St Andrew’s College and Shirley Boys’ High School, were seen as Nelson’s

biggest threats before the end of the season. Nelson made easy work of them, though, defeating St Thomas 25-14 and Shirley BHS 35-15. St Thomas had a slow start to this year’s UC Championship. However, they were confident going up to Nelson following a 31-17 win over third place Shirley BHS the previous week. The top four may be out of the

picture for the team, but they will hope to push their case for the plate competition. The UC Championship plate is contested between teams that finish from fifth through to eighth following the roundrobin. The team’s next game will be the most anticipated of the year, when they host bitter rivals St Bede’s College.

“Its been a long time since we had success against St Bede’s. 2007 was the last time we gave them a good run. I remember that game vividly, Elliot Dixon went off injured for them early and we had now All Blacks’ sevens player Sam Dickson playing for us,” said Mr Hart. The side have a bye this weekend thanks to the school holidays. The next round of competition is on July 23. Saturday’s UC Championship results Shirley BHS 24-15 St Bede’s; St Andrew’s 23-12 Burnside HS; Nelson College 27-25 St Thomas; Timaru BHS 18-7 Rangiora HS; Marlborough BC 48-20 Ashburton College; Lincoln HS 12-19 Waimea College; Roncalli 0-73 Christchurch BHS Standings Top 12: Christ’s College 49pts, Christchurch BHS 47pts, Shirley BHS 38pts, Nelson College 36pts, Waimea Combined 33pts, Burnside HS 32pts, St Andrew’s 31pts, Marlborough BC 31pts, St Bede’s 29pts, Timaru BHS 29pts, St Thomas 22pts, Rangiora HS 16pts, Ashburton College 7pts, Lincoln HS 3pts, Roncalli College 2pts.

Pupils teach Te Reo in supermarkets TWO PUPILS – one from Shirley Intermediate and the other from St Albans School – were the voices behind a supermarket initiative to celebrate Maori Language Week. Amiria Tikao, 12, and her younger sister Matakaea, 9, had their voices professionally recorded in a sound studio to help SuperValue and FreshChoice customers better understand the Maori language. The sisters were recorded pronouncing items such as apples, mushrooms, fish, milk, meat, kiwifruit and cheese, along with many others. Amiria said it was a fun project to be involved with. “It was really cool. It took about

45mins, so not very long . . . we got most of the words first time, which was good,” she said. Local SuperValue and FreshChoice supermarkets then put posters up around their stores, with a QR code that customers could scan with their cell phone. The code led to a website where they could hear the two pupils correctly pronounce the word. Amiria said she had not yet tested out the posters, but she would think about going in later. SuperValue and FreshChoice brands manager Liz de Lange said that when the campaign was run last year, the QR codes were used thou- BILINGUAL: Amiria and Matakaea Tikao helped supermarket customers celebrate Maori Language Week by lending their voices to a campaign around correct pronunciation. ​ sands of times.

The TaTToo Removal Company is the first in Christchurch to specialise in the removal of tattoos, and removing clients’ unwanted tattoos is their sole focus. This family business has three technicians, male and female, who have undergone extensive training and are committed to ongoing professional training to maintain their skills. Coming from beauty, hairdressing and hospitality backgrounds, they love working with people and providing a friendly and totally professional service. for whatever reason you wish to remove your tattoo, the technicians provide a fast, effective, confidential and unprejudiced service in an exclusive, private environment. Whether you are having a full tattoo removal or lightening a tattoo for a cover-up with new art, during the initial consultation your technician will take the time to fully understand your needs, relevant medical history and the history of the tattoo in question so that you get the best service possible. The q-switch laser the technicians use removes tattoos effectively. The laser emits short, nanosecond energy pulses that penetrate the tissue and shatter particles of ink pigment into fragments, which are then eliminated via the lymphatic system. While there may be some slight discomfort, it is very brief. however, ice packs and numbing cream can be provided if required.



Treatment and the number of sessions required vary depending on skin type, quality of tattoo and desired outcome, with six weeks needed between treatment sessions. for women who have had marks made on their skin during breast cancer treatment, the Tattoo Removal Company will remove these at no cost. The tattoo removal service is available seven days a week from 6am-10pm at the merivale clinic, 33 springfield Road. mention this advertisement and you are entitled to a 17 per cent discount off the first three treatments.

To make an appointment phone 022 046 7746, and check out their website www. and facebook page ‘Tattoo Removal Company’ for more information. Customer testimonial “Coming from a professional work environment i was very conscious about keeping a business image. although at the time i had it done i thought it was amazing, my tattoo has now become a part of me that i hide. i had always wondered about getting it removed but thought it would be too expensive and painful. The Tattoo Removal Company has made this process very easy for me. Not only is

HealTH & BeauTY


Keeping TracK Of YOur HealTH Lets take a look at the new fitness sensation Fitbit. What is it and how does it work? Most importantly, how do we incorporate it into our fitness regime? Fitbit consists of a family of products designed to track every part of your day – including activity, exercise, food, weight and sleep – to help you stay motivated, and see how small steps make a big impact. There’s something for every taste, budget and technical requirement from the everyday category of wrist bands to performance-specific watches. All Fitbit products track steps, distance, calories burned and active minutes. All but the most basic Fitbit also track sleep patterns. At the performance end of the range you’ll also have access to things like heart rate and GPS tracking. All of the products feature wireless syncing and online and mobile tools, such as the Fitbit app to help track your exercise, sleep, hydration and food, and connect with friends. Seeing your progress can really help you realise what’s possible, and investing in a Fitbit may help to take you on the next step of your health and fitness journey. Fitbit was built on the premise that fitness is not just about gym time; it’s

about all the time. So, it can be a great addition to your fitness regime.

There are many things to consider when choosing a health and fitness regime to follow through with.

for example: • What type of exercise to choose: indoor, outdoor or a mixture of both? Running, walking, cycling, swimming, yoga, pilates, dancing, group fitness, a team sport, or something else? • Who to exercise with: just yourself, with a buddy, in a group, or to enlist the help of a personal trainer? • What nutrition guidelines to follow: enlist the help of a nutritionist, or just cut back on processed food, for example? • Balance: how will you ensure you get a good balance of enough rest and recovery as well as the right frequency, duration and intensity of exercise? • Motivation: how will you motivate yourself to get out the door in the first place?! Professional advice from a registered exercise professional should always be your first port of call. They can help get you set up with an appropriate personalised programme, help you with exercise techniques, and help you stay accountable to your goals. Once you’re in the swing of things you may find you want some extra assistance to ramp up your progress towards your goals. investing in a Fitbit could help you to achieve this, especially if you’re a ‘details’ person who likes to be well organised and able to measure progress from each and every workout. Similarly, if you find you’re in a bit of a rut and could do with a mini accountability ‘buddy’, then a Fitbit could be just the ticket.

ent, renovate or redevelop? This property could be your lucky ticket, with its mouthwatering array of opportunities for the savvy investor. Situated on a superb 1004sqm freehold corner site with a blue chip Fendalton address, the upside of this house and land couldn’t be sweeter. The substantial character home is presented in very tidy condition. Two generous living areas boast wood panelling and lead lights to excite the character lover, while the roomy separate kitchen is perfectly functional, but ripe for updating. There are four good bedrooms, and the bathroom is fresh and neat with a separate shower. A heat pump and log burner will keep family or tenants cosy.
