Plans to quarry golf course possible „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding and Bridget Rutherford CONTROVERSIAL plans for Fulton Hogan to quarry Templeton Golf Course within the next five years, could go ahead if it meets certain conditions. The company wants to do a land swap with the 53.5ha golf course, and its nearby quarry, which sits on 84.3ha of Pound Rd land. The current quarry has

reached the end of its life span, and the golf course sits on top of aggregate. In a recently released decision, the Christchurch Replacement District Plan independent hearings panel said Fulton Hogan could pursue its plans only if it met certain conditions. City council head of planning and strategic transport Richard Osborne said the prerequisite conditions had to be met by December, 2021. Those included gaining

resource consent to clear indigenous vegetation and trees and providing a contract to the city council for the establishment of the course on the current quarry site, he said. The city council, neighbours Sara Harnett and Tjeerd Kikstra and Waterloo Park Ltd were strongly opposed to the plan. Ms Harnett’s property is right next door to the golf course. She said if the quarry moved there it would be noisy and dusty.

“It is pretty devastating it has got so far,� she said. “There is certainly a chance it could happen. It is certainly a win for Fulton Hogan.� As part of the plan, Fulton Hogan would build the club new facilities and an 18 hole golf course on the current quarry site, and would begin quarrying at the current golf course site. The left over land is tagged for community use. It also needs to gain the Minister of Conservation’s

approval to uplift the recreation reserve classification at the golf course and put it on the quarry site, he said. A Fulton Hogan spokesman said it was pleased with the outcome of the independent hearings panel, although it was not a foregone conclusion. He said the company currently quarried and processed at the Pound Rd site, and after the swap the activity would remain the same, if not in a reduced scale.

Villa Maria girls impress with child-locator application ENTREPRENEURS: Villa Maria College students Sarah Doocey, Catherine Thwaites, Georgia Proudfoot and Jordan Hill have impressed with their businesssavvy project “Locate your kid�. The clever app designed by the students would let parents know where their children are. The initiative was created by the students for the nationwide regional event BizNinja held by the Young Enterprise Trust. As part of the challenge students were required to come up with a project solution to reduce accidents and injury in New Zealand. ​

Tuesday August 23 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

Leading the Western News this week, is the latest on the controversial plans for Fulton Hogan to do a land swap with Templeton Golf Course. Hearing commissioners on the Christchurch Replacement District Plan have recently said it can go ahead – with certain conditions. Neighbours and the city council have been against the plan and looks like they will have a fight on their hands in coming years. Business in the west have sure made their mark with 14 being finalists in the Champion Canterbury Business Awards. We have the list on page 5. Good luck to you all and hope that we get to report some good news after the September 21 black tie event. Hei kona, Shelley Robinson

Proposed resident parking scheme moves up a gear „„ By Andrew King RESIDENTS ARE closer to getting permits that will allow them to park on their own street over-riding any time restrictions. The Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board and city councillor Jamie Gough want to introduce permits so residents can park in their street exempt from restricted time constraints. The board recommended city council staff arrange a briefing where resident permits can be explored and potential solutions found. The recommendation was adopted by the city council at a recent meeting. “Parking restrictions are a necessary evil to promote vehicle turnover in busy areas. But the point of them is not to punish the residents that need to park in front of their own house for longer than the restricted time period,” Cr Gough said. “I think there’s a better way, and it’s pretty straight-forward,” he said. The permit would over rule any parking restrictions on the street outside their property.


Tuesday August 23 2016

Russley resident Ken Legat said the permit was a fantastic idea that will start to give residents the freedom to park outside their properties. “Parking is a big problem, especially for us with the inclusion of the Airport Business Park and its employees needing a space to park near their work,” he said. The permits would be similar to the contractor parking permits Cr Gough campaigned for on behalf of a Holmwood Rd

resident. They allow contractors to park exempt from restrictions in suburban streets. That idea is now being trialled for the next 10 months. HAVE YOUR SAY: Does the city council need to bring in parking permits to allow residents to park outside their properties without the risk of parking fines? Share your views with us. Email

In Brief SKI FIELD FUNDRAISER Disabled Snowsports Canterbury is hosting a fundraiser so it can continue to enable disabled people to try out snow sports. The not-for-profit organisation teamed up with 15 ski fields in the South Island to give out ‘bargin books’. The books are ski field passes and are $110 for first one, $90 for subsequent. Go to http://www. disabledsnowsportscanterbury. for more details. SHED FIRE A Halswell Junction Rd shed in a Fulton Hogan yard was engulfed in flames last Saturday at 3.33am. Fire Services from Addington and Sockburn were sent to the scene and were shortly backed up by Harewood and central city appliances. One end of the shed was on fire along with a tractor. The fire soon spread to the roof of the shed. The fire is not being treated as suspicious and no one was hurt. Fire Services were at the scene for about two hours. It was first noticed by a security guard passing by. RESERVE NAMES APPROVED The Riccarton-Wigram Community Board has approved the proposed names of several

western reserves in the city. The subdivisions with new reserve names include the Wigram Skies subdivision, Kirkwood subdivision and the Longhurst subdivision. For a full list of the proposed reserve names and classifications go to attachment A of the Tuesday August 16 board meeting on the city council website. CAR CRASH Fire Services were sent out to the intersection of Halswell Junction and Springs Rds after a car crash. Fire Services were sent to clean up oil on the road caused by the crash. No one was trapped. Two appliances were sent from Sockburn and Harewood but only one arrived. A St John ambulance was sent to the scene. A woman involved in the crash was assessed on the site and did not need to go to the hospital. GRANT FOR HALSWELL SCHOOL The Riccarton-Wigram Community Board resolved to make a grant of $1100 from its 2016-2017 Youth Development Fund. The grant was made to Halswell School to support 11 pupils attending the China Group Tour. The tour will be held on September 17 through to October 5.

Anti-fluoridation argument doesn’t ‘hold much water’

Nick King responds to last week’s opinion piece by John Verd about the dangers of water fluoridation in Christchurch With respect John, I think your passion for the well-being of others is admirable but, in this case, misguided. To suffer a “toxic dose” of fluoride, at the current safe and recommended level you’d have to guzzle 25 gallons of water. You’d die from hyperhydration first. Sola dosis facit venenum – the dose makes the poison. You quote Hirzy and Connett as if that adds weight to the antifluoride argument. They are not respected in their field, nor do they speak for the (United States) Environmental Protection Agency. And they’re at odds with their peers and mountains of research. I suspect these “studies” are the well-known “Chinese studies”, popular among conspiracy theorists and widely discredited. Fifty poor studies versus thousands

of more robust studies does not make a solid case. The Chinese studies fail to acknowledge the higher than recommended levels of fluoride and other chemicals (also other factors that may contribute to lower IQ), including arsenic and iodine – iodine being a good example of “beneficial in small doses, dangerous in higher doses”. The dose makes the poison. Even if it is a by-product of an industrial process, so what? Lots of things are. We call it recycling. It’s safe at the levels required to be beneficial to teeth. Sure, it might be classed as a hazardous product which, of course, it will be if you’re counting it by the truck load. Hydrochloric acid is highly corrosive, but is also produced naturally by your own body. There’s arsenic in rice.

The dose makes the poison. I’m all for questioning and challenging the status-quo – things go stale if we don’t. But scaring people with sciencey-sounding rhetoric isn’t very helpful, even if your intentions are good. I too have my own reservations about this situation because of Christchurch’s reputation for amazing water, and I have an emotional attachment to that. But the points you covered just don’t hold much water (pun intended) and are potentially unnecessarily scary for people.

Readers respond to last week’s opinion piece by John Verd about fluoridated water Pam Webber, Middleton I agree with you. (It’s) abhorrent that they intend ruining our beautiful Christchurch water. Keep up the good work. Ian Orchard, Papanui I won’t be losing sleep over the possibility of fluoridated water until I get some more details which John Verd omitted from his soapbox. The somewhat breathless revelation that hydrofluorosilicic acid (more properly Hexafluorosilicic acid) is a by-product of the fertiliser industry isn’t particularly relevant. Like sausages, lots of ingredients in food come from pathways that we prefer not to know about, without being in any way hazardous. On the other hand, plenty of ingredients can be dangerous in the wrong concentrations. Sodium chloride and dihydrogen oxide are two classic examples. Sodium bicarbonate, frequently recommended for tough cleaning jobs, is also an essential ingredient in cakes. John makes no mention of the concentration of fluoride ions in treated water.

1mg/l or one part per million, hardly a toxic dose for a mineral that doesn’t accumulate in the body. He also omits to mention the ‘elevated’ levels of fluorine required to cause reduced IQ, or whether association is actual causation, or if any of the 50 studies had survived peer review? It’s much easier to scaremonger if you leave out any details that might counter your beliefs. Fee, Fendalton I am very annoyed that people do not have a choice with fluoridation. It’s mass poisoning. I certainly do not want to drink a neurotoxin everyday. What about babies and pregnant mothers? I would have to buy a special water filter that can get rid of fluoride. Children who have rotten teeth are most likely not drinking water and consuming too much sugar. Better to educate than fluoridate. Daniel Brice, Woolston I strongly support John Verd’s article on water fluoridation. It’s a poison and, like all things we ingest, it should be done of our own hand. I will be doing as much as possible to stop our precious water from being tainted with this chemical and having the choice taken from me of water I put into my body.

News Models at big event „„ By Annabelle Dick BURNSIDE’S Rebecca Dore will be among the models strutting down the catwalk at New Zealand Fashion Week. She will join Lucy Wyma, of Papanui, for tomorrow’s wedding section of the show. They will also appear on Saturday. Miss Dore, 21, is Portfolio Model Agency’s booker and a model for the business. This is her fourth time walking at NZFW and she’s thrilled to be part of one of the more extravagant shows of the week. “I did the wedding show last year and it was beautiful. It’s the best show of the week and it’s exciting to be a bride,” Miss Dore said. Portfolio Model Agency director Mel Radford Brown said the girls are some of the best in the agency and reflect the talent Christchurch has to offer. “This speak volumes of portfolio models and the calibre of our models,” Mrs Radford Brown said. She has also walked in

Australia’s premier event, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, in Sydney. Miss Wyma, 20, also walked in the latest Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and will model at NZFW this week. The young up-andcoming model was recently signed to IMG International, which has represented the likes of Gisele Bundchen, Miranda Kerr and Kate Moss. Georgia Greig, 19, of Ilam, will accompany the girls in what will be her first appearance at fashion week. Miss Greig only just stepped into the modelling scene a year ago and is excited to be in the show seeing as she didn’t even attend casting for the event. “It’s pretty overwhelming to be chosen because, being a student, it was financially unviable to attend casting so I just hung back and let them know I was available to be booked directly,” she said. The models will appear in the wedding show next Wednesday and Saturday.

Our People

Snowboarding and modelling Anneke Stewart is an artist who has spent years travelling and adventure-seeking. Reporter Annabelle Dick spoke to her about what it was like growing up on a deer farm, modelling for one of New Zealand’s biggest designers and how she impressed some of Europe’s most well-known graffiti artists You are an artist by trade, can you tell me about your art and your career? I exhibit at least once or twice a year, I’m always producing artwork. I produce in about 10 different mediums quite prolifically. The style is very much cohesive throughout my work. I’m into reclaimed objects and keeping the integrity of a material. My approach to what I do is consciously create and honour where we come from and where our materials come from. I believe we’re here to look after this beautiful planet. I’m a Reiki master which is like an energy healer so I’m very sensitive to energy and energy patterns. I love what I do. Art is not something I do, it’s who I am and there’s no separation between the two. It’s like breathing I have to do it in order to feel normal. What are you working on at the moment?

I’m currently working on more products and print media on paper so I can make my work more accessible. I’ve just completed the largest commission of my career so far for the Deloitte building in the city centre. It’s a lenticular lightbox which is an animated 3D-type medium so the images change when you walk past. I’m trying to keep my fine art and commercial art separate. On a weekly basis I do art classes where I teach a handful of students – hopefully, by next year I can have more classes. I want to start adult classes next month too. I’m also doing a piece for the BMX park over in New Brighton in spring. Tell me about you family. My father was a deer farmer and my mother has always worked in fashion.

I had an amazing life growing up on a farm. We spent summers in the Sounds at our family bach and in the winter I was always up at Mt Olympus. Spending time on the snow was a big part of my life. I learnt to ski there at three-years-old and snowboard at 16. I actually did my minor at art school in snowboard photography just so I could get up the mountain every week and justify it. I’ve been really involved in the early days of the snowboard industry in New Zealand. It makes me who I am and it makes me tick. Were you ever keen to get into fashion after growing up with a mother who’s highly prominent in the industry? Fashion isn’t something I’ve felt a huge desire to get into, I chose to pursue art which isn’t highly lucrative but I’m working on it. I used to model when I was 15 through to about 20 – but it wasn’t serious at all. I was just learning to snowboard when I got the biggest bruise on my hip. Soon after that happened I had to fly up to Auckland for my first advertising campaign for a New Zealand designer and it was with Helen Cherry.

give way to creating art It was a big deal and I turned up all bruised expecting them to say: ‘Who is this chick from the boonies? What’s she doing?’ Christine Webster shot the campaign and I idolised her as a photographer and here was me this little rookie snowboard model chick. I was mortified. That exemplifies my non-attachment to the fashion industry. I did draw on my photography skills though and I was the official photographer for New Zealand Fashion Week when I moved back to the country. What was school like? I went to Hororata Primary then Selwyn House before going to boarding school at St Margaret’s College. After high school I went to Christchurch Polytechnic where I did a degree in craft design. I actually failed university entrance for art so I couldn’t get into art school on my marks. So I took the year off and snowboarded every day and painted at night and filled up work books so I could get myself in. I then did my post graduate at Elam School of Fine Arts majoring in sculpture. What did you do after studying? I had been institutionalised my

SUNSET: Mandala light box created from an original photo taken near Shag Rock after the February 22, 2011, earthquake. ENTHUSIASTIC: Anneke Stewart on the slopes with her four-year-old daughter Phoenix.

whole life so I decided to move overseas where I spent 10 years. What was it like living overseas? I tried to get art-related jobs but they wouldn’t recognise my degree there. While I was there I got very good at graffiti. My partner of the time was an aerosol artist so I went out to do public walls with him quite often. I was part of a paint jam in Brighton with about 150 graffiti artists from all around Europe and I was one of three girls. They

were watching me paint and asked me how long I’ve been doing it . . . it was probably about my fifth ever piece and they were really impressed. After living in the UK I moved to Morzine, France and I got a job as a photographer. The first gig was at the Arctic Circle up the top of Sweden to an event called The Battle which is legendary in the snowboarding world. I ended up meeting a pro rider from Sweden and we ended up dating for four years.

SCIRT programme on the home straight SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls is almost complete and will finish in December. Most of our repairs involve fixing the city’s underground pipe networks with only small amount of our work focused on roads. Our roading work largely involves fixing where we have dug down to repair and replace the earthquake damaged pipes beneath. The result may look a little patchy but we repair roads to a reliable and serviceable standard. The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the city's earthquake-damaged roads after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood • Extensive repairs to the wastewater network in Upper Riccarton and Ilam will be completed next month. • Repairs to underground pipes and roading throughout the Hornby area are more than halfway through and will be complete in October this year. • Essential wastewater repairs in Aikmans Road in Merivale have begun and will be completed at the end of the year. • Your support is helping us to get the job done, thank you from the SCIRT team.

Why did you make the move back to New Zealand? After the Sweden saga I came home. I became unwell and developed really bad endometriosis. I was close to being booked in to get surgery but I wanted time to get my body strong so I moved to Wanaka. Being a Reiki master I was aware that what was going on could be fixed holistically. I worked with a natural healer and nutritionist for a year and I got rid of it completely without any surgery. You got engaged earlier this year, how did you meet you

partner? When I moved to Wanaka I met my partner Anthony who’s a builder. We lived in Wanaka for a couple of years before moving to Leeston, then to the high country and now we’re in Sumner. We have two kids together – Phoenix who’s four and Knox who is twoand-a-half. After the endometriosis I was told I wouldn’t be able to conceive children easily so my children are miracles. He’s from the Taranaki so he’s a North Island boy but I managed to move him down here because I’m a hardcore Cantabrian.

Bridal Show


Plan your honeymoon THE COST and time it takes to organise a honeymoon can often be underestimated when couples are planning their weddings. But at Sunday’s With This Ring Bridal Show, there will be a number of exhibitors there to take the stress out of it. Hello World Travel’s Rangiora and Rolleston branches will be at the show, with a group of experts to talk to people who are looking into the planning. Rangiora branch managing director Liz Ditmer said often people had unrealistic expectations of how much honeymoons could cost. She said people also had to start planning their trips well in advance, and their teams would be at next Sunday’s show to help people do so. “We’re just there to start pointing them in the right direction,” she said. “We can make appointments and sit down with them at a later time to talk in more detail.” This year’s show will have 85 exhibitors ranging from

wedding and bridesmaid gowns, photography, honeymoons, flowers, stationary, caterers, venue hire and many more. On top of that, there will be more than $22,000 of prizes to be won. A wedding and honeymoon at Norfolk Island will be up for grabs, as well as a honeymoon at The Edgewater Resort and Spa in Rarotonga. Venue hire up to the value of $4050 for Wigram Base will be up for grabs, along with many more prizes and giveaways. Two fashion catwalks will be held, one at 11am and the other at 2pm, showcasing wedding gowns and mother of the bride outfits. •The With This Ring Bridal Show will be held at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand, Wigram, on Sunday (August 28), from 9.30am-4pm. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door on the day, or pre-sale tickets are available online at


GETAWAY: The With This Ring Bridal Show will have stalls that offer advice on exotic honeymoon destinations.

Japanese students visit CGHS A GROUP of exchange students from Mukogawa, Japan, made themselves at home for about two weeks at Christchurch Girls’ High School. Mokogawa High School travelled to New Zealand to experience the true kiwi lifestyle by attending school and living with billet families of students at CGHS recently. It is the second year CGHS have hosted students from Mokogawa High School. Prefect Jess Maindonald said it was apparent that there were many differences between living and

attending school in Japan in comparison to New Zealand. “In Japan, none of the girls sit on the floor during classes or at break times. Similarly, they also do not use computers in class, instead doing all of their written work by hand,” she said. Jess said she found the Japanese students were fascinated by New Zealand culture. One of the students she spoke to said they thoroughly enjoyed learning about Maori culture and about selfdefence in PE. Principal Pauline Duthie said the school is looking to return next year.

Competitive and fun swimming


and recreation at Wharenui When Coronation Pool opened in 1911 to celebrate King George V’s coronation, its future significance to new Zealand swimming might not have been realised. Wharenui Pool, as it is known today, has changed substantially over the years. now larger, the indoor pool caters for competitive training, social swimming and swimming lessons. The attached sports stadium which recently re-opened is also available for casual and organised use by individuals and groups, for basketball, badminton, volleyball and netball. “The stadium has one full size court or two smaller courts where people can play casually for as little as $6.00 or groups can use for organised events, in the daytime or evening,” explains Jackie nicol, General Manager of the Wharenui Sports Centre. The pool has also been home to the Wharenui amateur Swim Club since 1911 and now has 100 registered swimmers including a junior squad. head coach, Martin harris has been with the club for the last eleven years. his high level of expertise and experience on how to compete at the top is one reason the club, has been one of the top ten swim clubs in new Zealand at the national competitions. Martin represented the united Kingdom at the Commonwealth Games, was part of an olympian team, and holds records in the united Kingdom for backstroke.

another 150 to 200 non-competing swimmers use Wharenui Pool while many Christchurch schools also bus students to Wharenui for swimming lessons. Daytime and evening lessons are provided by a strong base of expert coaches who include mothers and university students with a background in swimming and coaching. Fiona Campbell, Secretary of the Wharenui Swim Club says the key is having coaches who can build a rapport with their learners so water confidence and skills develop. “Babies to mature adults learn to swim here,” adds Fiona. “Most children love water and love to play in it. We teach the basics and how to be safe in the water.”

eStar working to Sattract best IT talent Nurturing new talent and better engaging employees will reach new heights at eStar, as the world class e-commerce platform and leading Christchurch tech company strives to attract the brightest IT professionals. eStar’s outreach activities look four to five years ahead, says Chief Operations Officer Kevin Rowland. eStar ‘lead team’ staff attend careers events, visit secondary schools and recently supported Shadowtech, with two female employees mentoring two secondary school girls for a day. The company is recruiting and will be looking for new talent at Ara Institute of Canterbury’s Industry Expo on 25 August, having previously employed Ara graduates (when Ara was CPIT). Finding the right skills mix for retail IT is challenging, Rowland says. With around 70 staff, eStar designs and develops the software that powers the websites and the online retail systems of retailers including Briscoes and Country Road. Technical skills are of course essential, but ‘soft skills’ such as communication and interaction can really set candidates apart. “When we interview I am always looking for personality. We do a technical test/developer half day immersion and everybody freaks over the fact that it’s a tech test, but if you can do what you say on your CV

then it’s not an issue. You’re in a live ‘dev’ room, with the people you are going to be working with. I not only encourage people to talk to each other but it has to happen because that helps me see what they’re like. “Most people who work in IT are introverts. It’s what makes us good programmers; it’s part of our personality. “It’s OK if candidates are a bit meek, but I have to see some kind of spark. I can throw a stone into Christchurch and find graduates who can do IT. They have got to have that bit of enthusiasm.” To find out more about working for eStar and other leading Christchurch companies visit the Ara Industry Expo and Open Day on 25 August, 2 – 5pm, City Campus and Woolston Campus, Christchurch.


Burside High flanker SPORTS top performer in UC Championship „„ By Gordon Findlater BURNSIDE HIGH School flanker Cam Russell was rewarded for his efforts during this year’s UC Championship at Saturday’s grand final. Russell was the joint winner of the Philip McDonald Memorial Medal with Shirley Boys’ High School No 8 Cruz Topai-Aveai. Former winners of the medal include the likes of super rugby players Damian McKenzie and Mitchell Drummond. The UC Championship was decided on Saturday when Christchurch Boys’ High School defeated Shirley Boys’ 21-20. The winner of the medal is decided by opposition coaches throughout the season. After each game they submit who they think were the top three performers on the opposition side. Russell is in his fourth season with the first XV. He made his Burnside debut in 2013 as a year 10. He was part of the Burnside team that conceded 100 points against CBHS that season. Now in his second season as the team’s captain, Russell has played a large part in Burnside’s rise in the UC Championship. He scored nine tries last year and has gone one better this year with 10. The flanker now has the chance to help his team win entry to the national

Reclaim your identity When it comes to dentures, Christchurch people have access to world-leading techniques and oral aesthetics right on their doorstep. At his Montreal street studio Lovebite, internationally renowned dental technician Richard Greenlees creates beautiful bespoke dentures with small nuances in the fabrication, colour and shape, and even slight imperfections to create a uniquely individual smile. There is no need for dentures to look false. Richard takes a great deal of satisfaction in making bespoke dentures that look 100 per cent real and natural, personally guiding his patients through the transformation process to craft a smile that reflects their individuality and personality, and recreates their natural pre-denture smile. Not only do Lovebite teeth look real, the whole structure and shape of the patient’s face is transformed with Richard’s top-of-the-line dentures, something he calls his signature ‘denture

lift’. “With appropriate facial support, the facial tissues are brought back into the correct position, the lips are reformed, and beauty is restored,” he says. it is the interior architecture of a Lovebite denture that helps to create a more youthful appearance by recovering the face and skeletal shape that can be lost after years of wearing dentures. As the smile is transformed, so are the patient’s confidence, and the way they feel about themselves. Richard’s vast experience includes 15 years of running his own clinic in the prestigious harley st, London, where he treated people from all walks of life, from barrow boys to the rich and famous, politicians, actors and musicians. his techniques are recognised as

world-leading among his international peers, and he is regularly asked to lecture and run courses worldwide. Miles Cone (DMD, Ms, FACP, CDt), a prosthodontist from Oregon, UsA, said in November 2015: “Richard Greenlees’ craftsmanship is as stunning as it is unique. There is liberation in the calculated imperfection, indeed an asperity that reflects a purely human element.” in addition to dentures, Richard also carries out crown and bridge, veneer and implant work, in conjunction with like-minded dental surgeons who complement his creative and aesthetic work. “teeth are as different as fingerprints and vary greatly depending on a person’s age, sex and race. Dentures from Lovebite reflect this, and are as unique and individual as the people they are made for,” says Richard. There is nothing more satisfying for Richard than to see his patients leave the Lovebite studio with their selfconfidence and identity restored, as well as their smile.

Confidence and beauty is restored with a new denture by Lovebite.

As the smile is transformed, so are the patient’s confidence, and the way they feel about themselves.

Davis Cup event returns to Christchurch The New Zealand Davis Cup team are heading back to Christchurch to take on Pakistan in the Asia-Oceania Group 1 second round playoff. The Tie is being held from Friday 16 September to Sunday 18 September, indoors at Z Energy Wilding Park. Kiwi Olympians Michael Venus and Marcus Daniell ranked 41 and 58 respective in the world for doubles have been named alongside Finn Tearney ranked 381, Rubin Statham at 444 in singles. If Statham takes the court he will beat Onny Parun’s New Zealand Davis Cup record of the most ties played for his country of 25 ties. It is likely Pakistan will select their doubles expert Aisam Qureshi who is 36-years-old and ranked 48th in doubles. Aqeel Khan is another likely veteran who should be selected. New Zealand lead Pakistan 3-1 in head-to-head clashes. The last time the two sides clashed it was a 4-1 win for New Zealand in Myanmar in 2013 which was abandoned. Christchurch has been the home of Davis Cup ties since 2014, with a win against Chinese Taipei in 2014 and a close 3-2 loss to India

in the 2015 semi-finals. Tennis Canterbury is extremely excited to host yet another Davis Cup tie for the third consecutive year. This is a return to the glory days that has seen Tennis Canterbury host numerous Davis Cup ties against some of the superpower of world tennis. Z Energy Wilding Park is one of the oldest sport venues still in operation in all of Canterbury. It has played host to Davis Cup matches as far back as the 1910’s and 20’s. Much like many of Christchurch’s other most important sporting facilities Wilding Park was severely impacted by the Christchurch Earthquake impacted in both September 2009 and February 2010. The rebuilding process has been a long one. Mixed emotions were felt at the demolition of the iconic Memorial Stands, host to numerous Davis Cup Tie and other International Tennis Federation events. However it was also the first bit of tangible progress in relation to the redevelopment of Wilding Park and proved to generate some real excitement amongst the tennis community. Strengthening work on the facility’s structural

and, in some cases, other sports outside of normal hours. The final stage of development work is scheduled to be gin in the coming month with a completion date of mid November, just in time for the Summer of Tennis. This development will allow Canterbury to again host National Age Group events, International Events and, of course, future Summer Davis Cup ties. steel and refurbishment of the administration and function space erased any signs of the earthquake damage and provided the wider community with some great function space. The final stage of development will see the reinstatement of

six additional outdoor courts, the development of a grassy embankment for spectator viewing and social spaces, including a barbeque area. The facility will continue to be available to the local communities, including school, charitable organisations

Cantabrian Tennis Player USA Bound From the age of 15 Jack’s overall goal in tennis was to gain a scholarship to train, play and study in the United States of America. Through taking part in Canterbury Performance squads since the age of 12, he constantly saw older players being granted scholarships and given opportunities to experience American lifestyle through tennis while gaining invaluable experiences. Seeing others excel in the college tennis system encouraged him to start preparation for enrolment in Fall 2016. In October of 2015, Jack got in contact with John Gardner, the head coach in the Nelson/Marlborough region and his company, Inspire Sports. John’s expertise guided Jack through a comprehensive checklist of what he needed to achieve to reach his ultimate goal of signing with a college that fitted in well with what he wanted. John’s personalised programme was a great help. It began with initial meetings with Jack and his father so John could understand what they were looking for in a college. John then set out a ‘Plan of attack” on how they would

go about getting a contract. They began working together through each stage, which included NCAA registration, skills video, personal website, SAT and GPA results and working through what colleges Jack wanted to contact. Jack believes that it would not have been possible for him to work through everything that needed to be done without John’s outstanding expertise and knowledge. Jack found John’s attention to detail and reliability to be outstanding.

Jack began talks with the coach from Southeastern Oklahoma State University in March of this year. The coach expressed his interest in Jack joining the college team and, after talking through email, the college made an offer for Jack to attend their college and become part of the Savage Storm athletic family. After the initial paper work, Jack signed a national letter of intent, committing Jack to attending the university. Through his years of training,

Jack’s ultimate goal was to get to university. Jack is a self-professed ‘late bloomer’ in tennis. During his junior years, he describes himself as a mediocre player who was always outside the top player category. Through growth, maturity and the help of the Canterbury training programme, he was able to play smarter tennis and achieve positive results. Coaching by Alistair Hunt and Matt Meredith has afforded Jack the opportunity to learn from the best and use their expertise on court, creating a huge advantage. Jack has represented Canterbury in multiple ties including Canterbury vs Marlborough, City vs Country, Canterbury team’s event and also the Canterbury men’s team. In 2015 he won the under 18 Canterbury Championships, a great result to put on his college application form. Jack has always loved the fact that tennis is mostly an individual sport, results are based on a player’s own ability and there are no excuses. Jack has always enjoyed competing in Canterbury Interclub representing his club of Elmwood. He is grateful to Ashley Forbes for giving him the opportunity to play top level tennis in the premiere grade against great players like James Meredith, Remi Fennon and other top rated players in the region. Jack feels that it through playing top level players that he has learned the most, even if it involved losing. During tennis season, Jack trains or plays every day of the week. Each week also includes four sessions of hitting, two fitness sessions and two days of interclub matches on the weekends. During the off season Jack keeps training with hitting three days a week and a fitness session and match play on the weekends.

Over the long term, Jack plans to take every opportunity he can at Southeastern Oklahoma State in order to reach his full potential whilst there, not just in tennis, but also in academic life. For younger players aspiring to play college tennis, Jack’s advice is to never give up. Jack recalls many moments in his time of playing tennis when he thought he wasn’t good enough, or wasn’t able to compete to his full potential. Not


On the 1st June 2016, Jack Tiller signed a national letter of intent with Southeastern Oklahoma State University, located in Durant, Oklahoma, USA.

Jack chooses to keep his future goals simple. His immediate goal is to do the best he can to prepare for college and to give himself the best chance of success. For Jack, this means being fit and healthy, requiring him to train as well as he can every time he gets on the court.

being the best player in the region or the nation is not a problem; it’s a challenge. By embracing that challenge, working hard and training, it is possible to shorten the gap between the different levels in order to compete in top level tennis. Have a goal and go for it!

Reaching out to a new generation Hagley Park Tennis Club intends to put tennis within reach of a new generation with new programmes and initiatives designed for today’s busy families. Tim Preston, who will soon assume the role of club President, plans to breathe new life into the club by offering a fresh array of functions and activities.
