Huge response for jobs at new supermarket By Tom Doudney ABOUT 450 people have applied for between 60 and 70 jobs on offer at a new Woolston Supermarket. Construction of the New World Ferry Rd supermarket is almost complete and the recruitment process has begun. The store will open, next to the existing New World Ferry Rd, on September 7. Applications closed on Wednesday and owner Greg Boock said he hadn’t expected to receive so many. “I suddenly had to rejig my calendar,” he said. “The positive thing is to be able to bring new jobs into the community.” He had hired a recruitment company to help him work through the large number of applications. The 60-70 new jobs were additional to the 42 existing staff members who would be making the move from the existing supermarket into the new one. Mr Boock said management would be putting contracts in front of people during the next two weeks, starting with the butchers’ and bakers’ positions. There had been applications from all over the city. While those who lived locally would

not necessarily be prioritised for positions, there had been strong interest from local high school students. “We are keeping an open mind on it – we are after the best applicants,” Mr Boock said. “But I think it’s good that a lot

of local students have applied.” Woolston Main Street Business Association acting chairman Stephen Hardman said the new supermarket could only be a good thing for businesses in the area. “I think I can speak for

everybody in the street to say that we are delighted the store is going to be open in a couple of months.” The new supermarket has a footprint of about 3000 sq m, about four times the area of the existing store.

Improvements include wider aisles, automated self-service checkouts and an expanded range of products. The existing supermarket will be demolished with the site converted to a car park area for the new supermarket.

THE WOOLSTON Brass band has brought back quite a haul from its latest competition. Check out their accolades on page 8. A fascinating read on page 6 about Dr Kate Dewes who is wellknown for her fight to keep New Zealand nuclear-free. She talks to reporter Caitlin Miles about how the Japanese ambassador challenged her after she told the United Nations how devastating a nuclear power centre in Christchurch would have been in the February 22, 2011, earthquake, especially when teamed with a tsunami. Dr Dewes had “no idea” that weeks later she would be sending him letters of support after his country was struck by a tsunami nearly a month later, causing a nuclear incident.

News Old mill sale being negotiated By Tom Doudney THE LATEST offer for the sale of Addington’s Woods Brothers Mill complex could hinge on the city council’s willingness to transfer and possibly top up a $900,000 heritage grant. Four previous offers to buy the complex have fallen through in the last five years and this year the building has been plagued by several fires set by people illegally entering the building. Majority owner John Cameron said he was working through a potential sale agreement with a developer which if it went ahead would need to be finalised early in September. The city council had put a $900,000 heritage grant on the table for previous sale agreements, with a deadline of October this year. Mr Cameron said whether that offer would be extended to the new buyer would be a key factor in negotiating the sale. “In fact, the persons are hoping to get some more money out of the council for the restoration of the buildings. The $900,000 is only a drop in the bucket, really.” The amount of funding required would be for the buyer

Engineering company Skytec has been planning the redevelopment of the building, on behalf of Mr Cameron, as mixed office and residential space. Director Bernard Toh suggested the city council could work with the Historic Places Trust and the community to ensure progress was made on the site’s future. “Maybe we all need to sit down together and say: ‘hey, is this worth keeping or not?’ If it

is let’s move on and brainstorm a way to do it. If it’s not worth keeping just forget about it and demolish it. Don’t create a situation where the building is left standing there looking very sad and tired and then creating a hazard for everyone living around the area,” Mr Toh said. “It’s all talk so far, just like the cathedral.” City council heritage team leader Brendan Smyth said a transfer of the grant would be a decision for city councillors to make.

In Brief SCHOOL BURGLARY One of the two men charged with burgling Addington Primary School on July 19, 25-year-old Gareth Eyre, of Addington, is scheduled to appear in the Christchurch District Court today. His alleged accomplice, 42-yearold Nathan Ihaka Te Hana, also of Addington, is scheduled to appear in court on Monday. Both entered no plea when they first appeared last week and were remanded in custody. The pair allegedly stole an amplifier and electronic equipment before being caught by a police dog. SUSPICIOUS FIRE Police were called to investigate a suspicious fire in some bushes outside a house in Glenroy St, Woolston, last Tuesday night shortly after 11pm. The occupants of the property said they had seen someone near the bushes shortly before the fire started. It was put out by firefighters from the Woolston station.

Don’t be dumb

NOT GOOD ENOUGH: The bus stop on Buckleys Rd, opposite the Eastgate shopping centre.

shopping centres, the bus services go in all directions. So if you want to take a bus into the city, there are two or even three different stops that you could wait at, only to see a bus that you could take leaving from one of the other stops. I would suggest that the city council and mall operators get together to better co-ordinate the bus service. For example, there is no reason why all buses passing Eastgate, including the Orbiter, could not enter the parking area at the back

Allen Harbrow responds to an article about the bus stops on Buckleys Rd which have been overlooked for major upgrades I have just read your article on bus stops, or lack of them, at Linwood. I have felt for a long time that we are not well served with bus stops at our malls. In Australian malls, buses and taxis take and pick up customers from within the mall car park area at suitably placed shelters. At The Palms and Eastgate

of the mall from, say, Linwood Ave and exit on to Buckleys Rd to go in either direction. A reasonable shelter could then be built at the back of the mall for passengers. The Palms has less space for buses to enter the car park area, but if that mall is looking to expand, the city council should make it conditional on creating a suitable bus stop within the mall area. It could enter or exit via Marshland Rd and exit at Golf Links Rd or vice versa, and this includes the Orbiter.

By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer A COUPLE of big fires featured in the city this week including the widely reported event in the Sol Square building that was demolished last weekend after fire damage completed the work that an earthquake started five years ago. This fire (right) is the latest example of the fact that if buildings are left empty for years the potential for them to be set on fire increases every week. Particularly those buildings that can be accessed easily and furtively. The incident involved seven fire appliances and a command unit and tied up resources for 14 hours. The other large fire was the destruction of a 100-year-old house in Clifton Bay that occurred in the early hours of last Sunday. Inquiries as to its cause are continuing but this was another house empty with earthquake damage. It was the largest fire the Sumner Brigade has been faced with for some time. Also over the week were four

incidents where people were hurt, generally trying to control a fire, failing and burning themselves in the process or swallowing enough smoke to make them sick. A young man was burnt at a party bonfire near the university early on Saturday evening. He was taken to hospital and the fire was put out. Only to be lit again after the crew departed. Two things. Alcohol and fire don’t mix well. And re-lighting a fire after fire crews have gone is dumb and irresponsible. Which takes us back to the first thing doesn’t it?

News School bell missing By Bridget Rutherford SYDENHAM SCHOOL’S bell has gone missing nearly 20 years after it closed its doors. The original bell from the school, on the corner of Brougham and Colombo Sts, was moved to Buchan Playground after the school closed in 1999. But it has gone missing. City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said the bell was “believed to be stolen”. “Council staff are making contact with local police regarding this,” he said. Sydenham Heritage Trust chairwoman Dorothy Haywood said she noticed the bell had disappeared from its metal frame about a month ago. Ms Haywood was the principal of the school for about 10 years, until it closed in 1999. “It’s a bit sad, that was the bell that was in the original tower at the school.” She said Sydenham had a proud history, but there wasn’t much left. “I had rung it a few times for time’s sake. The children used to do it. They loved it.” Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board chairwoman Karolin Potter said she hoped

whoever had it would return it “if they had any conscience.” A plan to upgrade Buchan Playground is being developed

by the city council and it was expected the bell would be moved to a different part of the park as part of that plan.

Political group eyes local body elections By Bridget Rutherford A NEW political group has emerged to contest city council seats in the south of the city. Community Voice will stand city council candidates in the Cashmere and Spreydon wards in October’s local body elections. Current Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board member Rik Tindall will stand in Cashmere, while political newbie Patricia Siataga will go for the Spreydon seat. Mr Tindall said the group was set up so residents’ voices could be heard. “It’s really the result of three years’ experience in the community board, where I campaigned for greater support for community groups and encountered a lot of resistance at community board and council level.” Mr Tindall will resign as chairman of the Cashmere Residents’ Association so he can run for city council. He has previously run for mayor twice, and the city council twice. Ms Siataga, who is a careers adviser at Catholic Cathedral College, said she had grown up in Spreydon, and wanted to represent the ward and the Pacific community.

Our People Memorable moments from nearly


Dr Kate Dewes has been fighting to keep New Zealand nuclear-free since her early 20s. She spoke to reporter Caitlin Miles about receiving threats for her work, sharing a memorable moment with the United Nations secretary general in 2011 and her plans to spend more time with her family Now that New Zealand has been nuclear free for nearly 30 years, can you tell me why you became involved in nuclear disarmament work? It goes back to 1975. I was a 23-year-old music teacher at Epsom Girls Grammar, and at the time I was about to teach the girls a piece of music dedicated to the survivors of the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima. I wanted to learn who the victims were and what happened to them and the aftermath of it. I was horrified. I decided I wanted to go back to university and learn about peace studies and nuclear disarmament. Is that when you decided to study in England? No university in New Zealand was offering a course in peace studies. So I had to leave the country to be able to do it. I went to Bradford University to learn more about peace talks, disarmament and what was happening around the world. I lived in Bradford while I studied and then came back here. Why did you decide to come back to Christchurch? Well, I had to. And I was pregnant

with my first daughter so I wanted to settle back here. I also wanted to be able to keep working on disarmament and promoting peace talks within Christchurch and the rest of New Zealand. In 1979, I had my first daughter and became a founding member of the Peace Foundation. I ran the Christchurch office from home. I still do. How was it balancing motherhood and work? It was tough. I have three daughters and I was a solo mum so there was a lot to do. It was really a balancing act. I never had hired help to look after my girls that was part of my job. There were other woman involved in the Peace Foundation so we would take turns baby sitting each others kids when we needed to do things. I slowed down a bit after the earthquakes, though. It was more a case that I had to. Why was that? Our house in Riccarton was damaged following the September 4, 2010, earthquake and all of my work and the paper I had written on nuclear disarmament, and my PhD on peace issues, had to be put into storage so they could be kept safe. It


MEMORABLE: Following the February 22, 2011, earthquake, UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon told Dr Dewes that the people of Christchurch had his support. turned out to be about 120 banana boxes of work. Funnily, they were stored in the Air Force Museum here in Christchurch. You got some abuse for what you

were doing, can you tell me a bit about that? There were some people that were against what we were doing. It was the height of the cold war and we


wanted to educate people as to what was going on. I was getting threatening phone calls about being attacked and some people even came to my home. I remember a photo was taken of me in the paper with one of my daughters sitting on my lap and someone said to me, ‘how dare you travel and work internationally when you have a family!’ I just laugh about it. There was a group that was against our idea of encouraging schools to teach children about peace settlements and things. Someone from the group against what we were doing spoke at a concerned parents’ association meeting in Hamilton. That’s where I am from and my parents were in the audience. During the person’s speech, he called me a communist, not that there was anything wrong with that, but at the time that was a rather weighted word. My parents were in the audience, and my dad stood up and said that I was his daughter and he defended me. That was a really big thing to do. Were there many low points? It was hard travelling internationally and being a solo mum, but I did it. When I wasn’t overseas, I worked from home so I could manage. What do you think are your really big personal achievements? Being a mother of three daughters is a big personal achievement. Getting my PhD was another one. I was working, being a parent and doing my PhD, so I’m really proud of that.

30 years of nuclear resistance

POLITICAL INVOLVEMENT: Former Prime Minister David Lange spoke to Dr Dewes about making New Zealand nuclear-free and not allowing nuclear weapons to enter the country. What about moments when you have had to pinch yourself? There were a few pinch yourself moments with all the people I have met and things we have managed to achieve. I was in the United States when I got the news that the February 22, 2011, earthquake hit. I thought about the house; it didn’t do well in the September-quake so I was worried it would be gone completely. I got all set to head back

to Christchurch and I called one of my daughters and she said, ‘no mum stay there, you have some important things to do, you need to stay and do it’. So I did. In the morning, I saw pictures the New York Times had of the Cathedral and then I had to go and speak at the UN. We were standing around before the discussion started and someone must have told the UN secretary general where I was from and he came up to me

and shook my hand and said, ‘please tell the people of Christchurch they have my support’. Then he told the whole audience at the UN where I was from and what had happened to my city. I couldn’t speak for several moments. I saw what had happened at home as an opportunity to get my point across. What was the point you were making? If we had a nuclear power centre in Christchurch, the effect would have been devastating. Especially if a tsunami had come through. The rest of the country would have been in a really horrible situation. The Japanese ambassador challenged me on what I said. I had no idea several weeks later I would be writing him letters of support for what had happened following the earthquake that hit Japan. Can you tell me a bit more about your involvement with the United Nations? I was appointed to the UN Secretary General’s Advisory Board on Disarmament Matters as a non-government member, which was great because I could openly say what I wanted and what I truly thought and felt. They had to look at things a little differently because I made them. I was the only female on the Government peace delegation in 1988, too. I think that I presented a really different perspective to the men as well, which was refreshing. I wasn’t paid for my work at the UN though.

AT WORK: Dr Dewes marks on a map the areas that support a nuclear-free New Zealand. How could you afford not to get paid for your work? The UN paid for my flights and accommodation so that helped. I also continued working from home. I taught peace studies part-time at Canterbury University so there was a little bit of money. I re-married so there was a wage coming in. What I could go without, I did. But for me, it wasn’t about the money. I got to sit on the advisory board and provide my input and opinions, which was

why I kept doing it. How did you meet your second husband? I was in Geneva for work in 1992 and Robert Green was at the same convention about peace talks and nuclear development. Robert was the chair of the United Kingdom branch of the World Court Project so I gradually got to know him. I had to convince him to come to New Zealand, as the Government were looking at changing a clause to the nuclear legislation, so I needed to convince him to come to New Zealand to speak and make sure they didn’t change the legislation. When he was in the navy, he carried nuclear bombs so he knows what he’s talking about and I wanted to get him to share his information with New Zealand. Soon I had people sending me money to help get him to New Zealand. What do you think of Helen Clark running for secretary general? I think go Helen. I watched the debate she was in recently and thought she did really well. She has the knowledge and experience for the job and I think she would do really well at it. What are you setting your sights on for the future? Robert and I are trying to wind down a bit now, that’s easier said than done though. I would really like to be able to spend more time with my four grand-children, too.

News Message from the 1950s A MESSAGE from the 1950s has been uncovered on the roof of the Sign of the Kiwi. Last week while working on the heritage site, contractors came across some popular song lyrics scrawled on the roof of the building. The words read, ‘If we had of known you were coming we’d of baked a cake [sic]’. They closely resemble lyrics from the song, If I Knew You Were Comin’ I’d’ve Baked a Cake, recorded by Eileen Barton in the 1950s. The song is about an unexpected visitor and lists what the singer would have done if she had known the visitor was coming. It reached number one on the

American billboard chart and has since been re-recorded by several artists. City council heritage adviser Gareth Wright said it was likely the message was written by tradesmen who worked on the roof in the 1950s. At the top of the message was what appeared to be the names of the tradesmen – Leighton, Turner and Newton. “I suspect the builders wrote this as a message for a future finder before they covered it over,’’ Mr Wright said. Sign of the Kiwi has been closed since the February 22, 2011 earthquake and has been under repair since April. Work is due to be completed by October.

Pokemon Go helps to deter vandals By Tom Doudney A GROUP which looks after Edmonds Factory Garden is hoping that a recent spate of fires and graffiti are behind them – thanks to cameras and the Pokemon Go craze. A Linwood College student, thought to be responsible for a series of fires and tagging at the

gardens several weeks ago, has been identified by the school and police, with the help of CCTV footage. A more recent fire was started by a homeless person camping in the garden’s driveway. The person left the scene after their tent caught fire, but Friends of the Edmonds Fac-

tory Garden member, Jenny Hoskin, said CCTV footage had again been passed to police to see if the person could be identified. The Pokemon Go craze has also provided some unexpected help in deterring bad behaviour in the garden. “It has meant that there are

Three bedrooms all downstairs means upstairs is dedicated to a separate lounge, open plan dining and kitchen and a large deck to soak up the sun.

Big win for Boys’ High By Gordon Findlater CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High School had a bonus-point win after crushing Rangiora High School in the 13th round of the UC Championship. On Saturday, Christchurch BHS made light work of Rangiora, piling on the points in a one-sided 83-13 win. The team also handed Bob Letiu and Sam Caldwell first XV debuts. This puts Christchurch BHS just two points behind competition front runner’s, Christ’s College. Christ’s were impressive against third-place Shirley Boys’ High School, running in five tries to topple last year’s grandfinalists 33-10. While the race for top spot between Christ’s and Christchurch BHS is one to watch, the battle for the final two play-off spots is wide open between eight teams. Just four competition points separate third from 10th position, with two rounds remaining. St Andrew’s College and St Bede’s College are both looking to finish in the top four. They both won on the weekend. St Bede’s beat rival’s St Thomas of Canterbury College 22-12. St Bede’s are now three points

February 2016 earthquake response

With each natural disaster, EQC has increasingly listened to customer feedback to improve how it works, says EQC February 2016 Event Manager, Jayne Lapin. Seismic monitoring on Mt Ruapehu

Marking GeoNet’s 15th birthday A message from Dr Hugh Cowan, General Manager Reinsurance, Research and Education

EQC awarded costs from Action Group The Earthquake Commission welcomes the High Court’s recent costs decision which orders the EQC Action Group to pay costs of $4,237 to EQC. The costs decision was issued following the discontinuation of the Action Group’s declaratory judgment application. The Action Group sought a series of declarations in relation to the obligations of the Commission under the EQC Act.

ILV community meetings on EQC invites you to attend one of our community meetings for homeowners who have received an Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) land

This month, GeoNet is celebrating its 15th anniversary. Most Cantabrians will be familiar with the GeoNet app which provides instant information about quakes and volcanic activity. GeoNet uses a network of over 600 sensors across New Zealand to detect, analyse and respond to earthquakes, volcanic activity and other geological hazards. It was established in 2001 as a collaboration between EQC as investor and GNS as technical manager.

comprehensively recorded earthquakes in urban history. The quantity of GeoNet data has delivered significant benefits for Canterbury, not least in enabling decisions relating to building reconstruction, engineering, the behaviour of the land, and reinsurance to be informed by science.

Over the years, GeoNet has been recognised internationally as at the leading edge of natural hazards monitoring, which is a significant bonus for New Zealand given the dynamic nature of our region.

Such a wide range of applications in Canterbury exemplifies the benefits of EQC’s investment which requires GeoNet to make its data publicly and freely available. GeoNet’s growing and diverse community of users extends well beyond EQC and GNS. Land surveyors, airline pilots, power and water companies and local government all use GeoNet data in different ways.

Canterbury’s proximity to the Alpine Fault means that it has a large number of sensors. The start of the Canterbury earthquake sequence triggered further expansion of this network, ultimately making the February 2011 earthquake one of the most

EQC is proud to have maintained such a long-term and successful partnership with GNS, providing GeoNet with around $12m a year. Late last year, we committed funding through to 2021 as part of our research and education programme.

“For the February 2016 earthquakes we are emailing a survey to customers to complete two weeks after their claim resolution to gauge potential areas for improvement. To date, most customers have said their experience of the new EQC process was positive or very positive,” she said. EQC has taken a different approach to finalising the 13,985 claims lodged by customers following the Canterbury earthquakes of 14 and 29 February, 2016, and the aftershocks through March and June. To date EQC has paid over $7.8 million to customers for damage claims. EQC is reverting back to cash settlements as there is no managed repair programme. EQC aims to complete assessments for these events sooner, where possible, using a claims management approach that EQC customers helped design. EQC aims to resolve all claims for these 2016 Christchurch events by the end of December. “One way to achieve this is by phoning customers to get all the relevant information up front, before conducting assessment. For many claims, damage assessment is done over the phone. At its heart is the drive to make EQC easier to do business with,” Miss Lapin says. This differed from the 2010/2011 Canterbury claims, largely because earthquake damage incurred in 2016 quakes was minor. Customer payments are averaging $1,000 to $5,000 per claim. Only two claims were up to $50,000, and no claims to date have gone over the EQC cap.

Chief Executive Ian Simpson says the costs decision reaffirms EQC’s position that litigation was an unnecessary way to address the specific issues concerning the Action Group members’ claims.

Support agencies for customers

Mr Simpson says that EQC remains completely focussed on settling outstanding claims in Canterbury including those of EQC Action Group members. “Any customer can request a review of their individual claim if they believe EQC has missed earthquake damage sustained to their home, if they don’t agree with the proposed repair strategy, or if they believe the settlement amount is incorrect. The process for this is detailed on our website and EQC continues to work with our customers so they receive what they are entitled to and have their claims resolved.”

EQC continues to work with customer advisory agencies to progress the settlement of customer claims, and answer customer queries. Customers wanting to have their claim reviewed can call 0800 326 243 (0800 DAMAGE) or email or visit In such situations you should provide us with details supporting your request for a claim review, together with any information you have obtained in support of your request.

The 90-minute meetings will feature: • a presentation by EQC’s Head of Canterbury Land, Keith Land, on overall approach for settling ILV land damage; and • a presentation by EQC’s valuers, on the valuation assessments which underpin EQC’s settlement decisions.

Varicose veins treated quickly and effectively Transform CliniC in mandeville street riccarton boasts a team of dedicated professionals, who include the clinic’s doctor, ian little, registered nurses and qualified beauty therapists, providing a wide range of appearance medicine and beauty therapy treatments for their clients. one of their main specialties is nonsurgical varicose vein removal. This is a simple, quick and effective walk-in walk-out treatment with no time off work required. Clients seeking advice about their varicose veins first undergo a free assessment, which enables the health professional to determine if they need treatment, and if so, what the most appropriate type would be. Two methods are offered – endo-venous laser treatment, which is used for both smaller and larger veins, and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy. following the treatment, clients need to wear support stockings for two weeks. international travel is not recommended for four weeks after treatment. Transform Clinic has an affiliation with health provider southern Cross and relationships with several other health insurance companies, which means clients may be covered for varicose vein treatment, providing it is included in their policy. appearance medicine is another key aspect of Transform Clinic’s therapy options, with skin rejuvenation and skintightening treatments designed to improve skin quality as well as enhance self-esteem.


Treatments include the Vampire face lift, which uses Platelet rich Plasma or PrP, and fraxel laser treatment. These treatments can be combined to achieve the desired results. sclerotherapy is also used to remove superficial veins on the legs and face. in addition, the clinic offers mole mapping, mole removal and primary skin cancer removal. The Transform Clinic website,, has a wealth of information on the various treatments and regularly has special offers and promotions. They also suggest you ‘like’ their facebook page, to keep up to date with what they are offering. The Transform Clinic is discreetly located at 52a mandeville street. opening hours are monday to friday from 8.30am, with late nights on Tuesday and Thursday, and saturday from 9am to 3pm.

Boutique salon provides professional advice on wigs Fusion Hair is a chic, affordable boutique salon in Waltham. The award-winning stylists at Fusion Hair pride themselves on listening to their clients’ needs and creating a style that works for them and their lifestyles. In addition to offering all aspects of hairdressing – from cutting and colouring to perms and blow waves for all members of the family, owner Joanne Neilson, also stocks a wide selection of luxury wigs.

The wigs are available in short and long styles and in a wide selection of shades, with most of them being multi-tonal and featuring natural-looking highlights. They are made from quality synthetic fibres that are heat-resistant, so curling irons can be used for styling. Many of them have an invisible lace front, so you can’t tell that they are a wig, Joanne says, and starting at around $200, they are also very cost-effective.

Joanne is an accredited wig provider for the Ministry of Health, and clients requiring wigs may be undergoing cancer treatment, or have alopecia. As a professional hairdresser, Joanne is able to advise women on the right wig to suit their colouring and personal style.

Fusion Hair, 6 Opawa Road, is open six days a week with a late night on Thursdays. To book an appointment phone 379 1275.

Well recognised in country music circles both here and overseas, Phil is an accomplished guitarist-vocalist who has been developing his skills for almost 3 decades in concert, studio and "just jamming around at home". He has claimed many music awards over the years with his most recent being Male Artist of the Year 2014 at the National Country Music Awards. A strong ambassador for original music, Phil is front man for the regular local event, 'Songwriters in the Round'. Taking place towards the end of each month at Alvarado's on Stevens St, each round showcases three songwriters with acoustic interpretations of their music. Phil launches his new album Endless Highway at Kaiapoi

High School on Saturday 27th August along with special guests The Ranchsliders, Dani Rigby, and Lana Doublet. Tickets are available now exclusively at Music Works, South City, Colombo St. (cash only).
