No parking lines likely for Rose St „„ By Caitlin Miles AFTER MORE than a year of waiting, yellow no stopping lines may finally be put in on Rose St. They were meant to be painted at the end of last month. But instead it went back to the community board for yet another vote – this time over placement once again. City council staff have recommended this time round that the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board put the yellow lines on the streets that intersect with Rose St, including Fairview, Marley View, Palmside Sts, and Hoon Hay Rd. Cashmere residents asked almost 14 months ago for the city council to put yellow no parking lines. There were concerns about parking along the street too close to the kerb and making it hard for other motorists to see. Lower Cashmere Residents’ Association chairwoman Sue Bye said the group had been waiting

to get the lines since August last year and she doesn’t know what the hold up is. But the issue could be solved today once the community board sign off on the city council’s recommendations. Community board chairwoman Karolin Potter (left) said she was sorry to the residents and community that it had taken so long to get action, but now the work would be done. “It will be good for the community to finally see the problem taken care of, it has taken a long time to get to this point,” she said. The price has also more than tripled since the city council said they would have the work done, going from $300 to $1000 to complete the work. Once the community board have approved of the recommendations the no parking lines will be installed within three to four weeks.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK IT IS one of the reasons we do this job – taking a stand on an issue that the community needs addressed. Last week, we were thrilled for our readers near Addington Park who have been successful at getting a permanent ban on freedom camping (page 3). If not for people like resident Bruce McNabb working with Southern View on this issue, and the countless number of letters we had the outcome may have been very different. It was an important issue to our readers; therefore it was important to us. This week we also celebrate the achievements of young people. Cashmere High School’s prizegiving list is on page 7. Keep an eye out over the coming weeks as we will publish the lists from other schools. Hei kona, Shelley Robinson

People power beats freedom campers

„„ By Caitlin Miles

FREE

AFTER MONTHS of lobbying, freedom camping has been banned from Addington Park. THe city council has prohibited freedom camping completely from Addington Park, Windsport Park, Lower Styx River Mouth, French Farm and Wainui. It has also banned non self contained units from camping throughout the entire city. It is news welcomed by Addington resident Bruce McNabb who was outspoken on the issue and joined in Southern View’s campaign to rid the park of freedom campers. Southern View campaigned for the residents to be heard on the issue, with extensive coverage from when the problem first arose in January. Residents were angry about not being able to use the car park, rubbish being left behind and unsanitary toileting by freedom campers. At one point the city council received a complaint of a camper defecating on the playground swings. City councillors Phil Clearwater and Tim Scandrett were both asked to provide columns on what they were going to do on the issue. The Southern View found out that the city council’s chief executive

CAMPERS BRING PROBLEMS TO ADDINGTON PARK Camping activities spark complaints but no fines issued

Freedom campers at Addington Park have sparked complaints by leaving rubbish lying around, using the grounds as a toilet and blocking up the car parking when they are not supposed to be there. But no freedom campers have been fined for breaking the rules. Addington resident Sue Gorton said a number of people were not happy about the freedom campers at the park since a new bylaw was introduced in

INSIDE:

December. The park is one of three areas where freedom camping is allowed, after the city council cracked down after problems in New Brighton last year. Windsport Park in Ferrymead, and the Lower Styx River mouth. Campers can stay five nights and can stay from one hour before sunset to 9am the next day. Mrs Gorton said with rubbish bins overflowing and parking

spaces often full from 3pm, residents didn’t believe the park was well set up for freedom camping. Paul “We are McMahon concerned about the hygiene down there and [allowing freedom camping in the park] has just shifted the problem from one area to another, which is in our backyard at the moment. There needs to

be a long-term solution, not just moving it from neighbourhood to neighbourhood,� she said. City council regulatory compliance acting head Tracey Weston said the park was monitored every day. She said they recorded the vehicle registrations of everyone staying at the site, so they could monitor how long people were staying. Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board chairman Paul McMahon said there had been

problems when the bylaw was first put in place in December. The toilets had initially been locked at night and there had not been enough rubbish bins, which had sparked problems, he said. “But they’ve got those (rubbish bins) now and the toilets are kept open, so it has improved,� he said. “Having people visit Christchurch as an affordable place to come to is a good thing, so long as they are abiding by the bylaws,� he said.

NO PLANS YET TO CHANGE CAMPING RULES GABRIELLE STUART

City councillors have no plans to make rule changes to freedom camping at Addington Park in spite of complaints from residents. Freedom campers at the park have been reported drinking in the park, leaving used toilet paper in the trees and defecating on the playground swings. At least 20 complaints have been made to the city council. None have resulted in fines. One camper was trespassed from the site for camping for too long in a non-self-contained vehicle.

“We need to see what’s working well and what isn’t, and review it based on the evidence,� he said. If the report did show clear problems, he would consider calling for the review to be brought forward, he said. But Addington residents say they have had enough. Resident Bruce McNabb said his children, aged 12, 14 and 17, often used to play in the park and walk across it to get to school, but they no longer felt safe. “I don’t like the idea of them going there, especially at night time. You don’t know who’s down there or what they’re doing,� he said. “They shouldn’t even be there. It’s not a proper camping

ground. If they have the money to come to New Zealand they should have the money to pay for themselves,� he said. City council regulatory compliance acting head Fiona Proudfoot said it had brought in more bins, cleaned the park more often, and monitored the park each day. Under the rules, campers can stay five nights and can stay from one hour before sunset to 9am the next day. Have your say Do you think the city council needs to make changes now to freedom camping bylaw in response to problems at Addington Park. Or do you agree that more evidence is needed? Email bridget.rutherford@ starmedia.kiwi

The city council has had 20 complaints about freedom campers. They include: • Rubbish bins overflowing • No space available for visitors to park • Large assortment of clothing in the trees near where the tents are pitched • Discarded mattresses left lying around with rubbish piled up on top of them • Defecating and urinating by the playground • Used toilet paper within the branches of trees by car park • Drinking and littering, glass bottles thrown around • Freedom campers being rude to people walking their dogs • Family visited park and felt unsafe and unwelcome • Readers’ letters, p7-8

Deputy chairwoman Karolin Potter said members were told there appeared to be more freedom campers in the city than ever before and they were congregating in the areas where freedom camping was allowed. The city council was stretched, because it was not able to patrol those areas 24/7, Ms Potter said. Councillor Phil Clearwater said the damage at Addington Park should be enough for Dr

Edwards to temporarily ban freedom camping there. “I think there needs to be a ban on camping there as soon as possible, the temporary closure is the best way to do that.� He said if the ban was enforced, it would likely stay in place until the review in April. A spokeswoman said when Dr Edwards received the request, she would then get advice before making a decision.

Southern View, four more complaints have been laid with the city council which included shopping trolleys left in the park, a female camper was in the men’s toilet area, there was no parking for others and the number of people in the area was a nuisance. “It’s getting worse. It’s awful there’s rubbish everywhere, no one else can use the park. The city council needs to hurry up with their decision,� Mr McNabb said. But councillor Phil Clearwater says it’s not that easy. He wants a temporary closure of Addington Park to non-self

contained vehicles. “The city council is very aware of the issue and has a strong interest in the bylaw.� Cr Clearwater said they had to consider the impact closing one area would have on other freedom camping areas. “If you ban them from there all those people will end up going to other areas, so we need to look at how an influx will impact those areas too,� he said.

One complaint was a resident who “noticed a woman sitting on the playground swing defecating as if it was a toilet seat�. City councillor Phil Clearwater said while many residents had complained to him personally, he wanted more evidence before lobbying for changes. A report on freedom camping will go to the city council in April, but the bylaw is not due to be reviewed until late next year. Cr Clearwater said he would not call for changes to the bylaw to help Addington residents, until he had seen the report in April.

Addington Park will be emptied of freedom campers by tomorrow but while residents are thrilled, those staying there are upset by the move. Last week after months of angst, city council chief executive Karleen Edwards (right) made the decision to temporarily close Addington Park and other freedom camping areas in the city and on Banks Peninsula. Lower Styx River, Windsport Park and Wainui will all be closing to all forms of freedom camping from noon on Wednesday till the end of May. The Southern View has lobbied on behalf of residents for the city council to address problems of freedom camping, after reports of overcrowding and sanitary problems including an incident of a camper defecating on the playground swings. This resulted in the SpreydonHeathcote Community Board requesting Dr Edwards to immediately close the park to freedom campers. Nearby resident Bruce

McNabb is relieved to see it closed. “It’s awesome to hear it’s getting closed. The state of the park is just awful,� said Mr McNabb. But French freedom campers Emma and Michael Vonsternberg said it was “sad news�. They understood why the decision had been made, but said they had tried to clean up other campers’ rubbish to reduce the impact on residents. “We don’t like rubbish in France and we don’t like it here,� they said. “We are saddened by this news, but we understand the reaction.� The city council is currently

providing information to freedom campers about the temporary closures and will closely monitor the sites to make sure campers comply. The freedom camping bylaw means the city council can issue a $200 fine for anyone that is freedom camping in restricted areas or making preparation to freedom camp. Mr McNabb thinks the closure should be permanent and that the community will be upset if the closure is lifted. “There will be an uproar if they open it again.� The temporary closures will be reviewed by the city council in May.

GONE: Addington resident Bruce McNabb is happy to finally see freedom camping banned from Addington Park for good.

Karleen Edwards was the only person that could change the bylaw and put the question to her whether she would. Soon after, she made decisions to temporarily ban it on March 10. “It’s really good to see it done and dusted . . . it’s a car park not

a camping spot,� Mr McNabb said. City councillor, Tim Scandrett said the number of freedom campers using the facilities at Addington Park, Windsport Park, Lower Styx River Mouth, French Farm and Wainui was

unexpected. “THe influx of freedom camping numbers had been quite surprising,� Cr Scandrett said. He said the facilities in Addington Park weren’t designed for freedom camping.

Mr McNabb couldn’t understand why the city council doesn’t use part of the red zone to allow freedom campers to stay in. “Why not set up some facilities in there and let them use some of the land? It’s sitting there empty,� he said. Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner, who was also chairman of the hearings panel that made the report on the recommendations said these changes needed to happen ahead of the full review. Consultation on changes to the bylaw were open from August to September and 72 submissions were made with 55 supporting the proposed changes.

Readers respond to a recent article about the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway potentially removing car parks, changing speed limits and road layouts and demolishing homes Hazel Agnew, of Somerfield – Why are people so attached to their cars? If non cyclists are to start cycling and feel safe doing so cycleways are needed. Research shows that cycling is safer when more people cycle. Parking isn’t a problem as eight to 10 bikes can park in one car parking space. Businesses don’t need to object because cyclists make purchases too – in Portland, Oregon, retailers found that cyclists spent as much as other people (smaller but higher value goods). When more people cycle the environment is quieter and less polluted and the population is healthier – less of an obesity problem. So everybody wins.

It is also imperative that visitors return to Christchurch. A project I have been heavily involved with is the Christchurch Adventure Park due to open in the Port Hills in December this year. The opening of this world-class outdoor recreational facility will really put Christchurch on the map. It will offer locals a much needed outdoor facility, provide more than 100 local jobs and be a huge attraction for overseas visitors.   The St Martins Volunteer Library is another community facility due to re-open soon. This icon on Wilson’s Rd will return as a library, toy library and community space. You can’t really beat Christchurch on a clear blue sky spring day.

Christchurch definitely has had its trials and tribulations over the past few years. You must admit though, that the spring blossom, bulbs and blooms do make our city look stunning and make us realise why we all are so committed to helping Christchurch get back on its feet. I am really pleased to be returning to council with old and new colleagues passionate about working hard to achieve the best for our city. The next three years will see many plans and consultations come to fruition in the form of new community and city facilities, infrastructure repairs and environmental initiatives. Christchurch has a huge chance to be better than ever. It is up to us all to take up these opportunities and achieve our combined vision of a vibrant, sustainable and

that my children are safer on the roads. At the moment it is a nightmare with the amount of cars on the road and making more parks and more lanes only makes this worst. Also I have noticed the number of car and bus drivers that do not give way to cyclists only because they are on a cycle. We talk about this subject often at work and all agree time something was done and cycleways will be a great start. Nicki Cartlidge – They had their chance to develop a world-class pioneering public transport network in Christchurch. If a cycleway was a crucial part of such a network, then maybe just maybe they’d begin to have some justification for making the route a priority.

But they screwed up their chance and having done so, a cycle route no way trumps the waste of demolishing housing . . . not to mention uprooting human beings who have been through enough. Nicola N Craig Kinzett – In a city where undamaged houses are at a premium, why would you demolish up to four of them? Ann Barsby – I thought this was just a rumour. Charmaine Andresen – Crazy! People need homes, not cycleways! Jason Gemmill – Four metres for a frickin cycleway? Madness! Demolishing houses to make a cycleway? Insanity.

Rubber factory opened

„„ By Sam Pickering WELL-KNOWN rubber company Skellerup opened its new factory in Wigram last week. The $60 million facility will cover 19,000 sq m in Stark Drive and employ about 200 people. Prime Minister John Key opened the factory. Skellerup has been synonymous in the rubber industry since it opened its factory in Woolston in 1910, and was a big employer in the eastern suburbs for decades. The products the factory makes range from industrial rubber products, dairy rubberware, waterproof footwear, closed-cell foam products, mining products, vacuum pumps and construction products. For many years it also made footwear at its Woolston plant. Company chairman Sir Selwyn Cushing said Skellerup’s Woolston site had been the company’s heart and soul for more than three-quarters of a century, and he expected the Wigram development would serve the company and its customers for at least as many years to come. “We had a very hard look at our options after the quake – staying in Christchurch was clearly the best choice for the business,” he said. Skellerup chief executive

David Mair said he is confident the factory will be a platform for future growth. “People said we should move to China, that didn’t actually stack up. So the great thing about this is there is a really good future here in Christchurch.

The facility was acquired by Skellerup in May 2013 from Wigram Business Park developers and Ngai Tahu property. Sir Selwyn paid tribute to Project Champion Sir Ron Carter, the Skellerup team and the project contractors responsible for the Wigram development.

Judge writes children’s book From the courtroom to the classroom

„„ By Bridget Rutherford A CHRISTCHURCH judge and author visited St Martins Primary School to share his first book with them. Hunstbury resident Judge Rob Murfitt went to the school recently to read Claire and the Weka. He said it was a special place to share the book because his children went to the school and he used to be on the board of trustees. It is Judge Murfitt’s job to try and see the world through the eyes of children. He has been a judge for more than 10 years, mostly working in the Family Court. Before that, he represented children in family disputes. The book has been published under the name Robbie James – Judge Murfitt’s given names. It is about a young girl who gets her favourite teddy stolen by a weka. She enlists the help of a boy to

get it back. Judge Murfitt said the book, which is illustrated by Sunset, was a true story about his daughter, Claire, from a family holiday in the Marlborough Sounds about 30 years ago. “There’s little lessons about helping other people and being grateful.” He said it was inspired by his granddaughter Eva, who loved hearing the story so much, he

thought others might too. Judge Murfitt said writing the book helped him with his day job. “In a sense, it helps to keep you able to see the world through children’s eyes,” he said. “When we’re dealing with disputes about parenting, the law says that we have to look at the welfare of the children. “It’s the child’s rights, it’s the child’s needs that come first and so I suppose in the daily routine

of dealing with disputes, you do get used to doing that.” It also helped him keep a good balance in life, he said. “Whether it’s in the Family Court or the criminal court, you’re dealing with people in crisis almost all the time, so the uncomplicated innocence of writing children’s books is a really nice contrast with that.” Although Judge Murfitt spends

most of his time in Family Court, he also does a share of the criminal jurisdiction – and has been known to use a more personalised approach to sentencing when appropriate. Back in 2007, a 17-year-old appeared before him in the Hawera District Court on a disorderly behaviour charge. “He was a young man who was heading off the rails but he was waiting to join the army. A conviction was going to delay him for three months. The army was just what he needed and a delay was not going to help anyone.” So Judge Murfitt sent him on a run accompanied by police – if he could do it in under an hour, he would be discharged. “The court was in uproar cheering him on.” Turns out his parents were marathon runners, he said, and sure enough he made it and was discharged without conviction. “I know that he’s done really well since then. He served overseas, settled down and he’s living a good, pre-social life. “The whole drive of sentencing is to (a) keep the public protected, but (b) to reduce the offender’s risk of re-offending and returning to court. Getting particular young men on track is best for the community.”

PATIENT: Marian College’s future will not be decided until a new Catholic Bishop of Christchurch is appointed. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

School’s fate up to bishop „„ By Bridget Rutherford THE FUTURE of Marian College will not be decided until a new Catholic Bishop of Christchurch is appointed. The diocese has been looking at permanent options to rebuild the school after being forced from its North Pde site following the February 2011 earthquake. However, none have been set in stone. In a letter to the school, administrator of the diocese Reverend Rick Loughnan said the decision would be deferred until a new bishop was appointed and further investigations were carried out. “We must be 100 per cent sure of our reasoning when the final decision is made and, with a new bishop soon to be appointed, it would seem appropriate for him, with our guidance, to have input into this final decision,” the letter said.

Marian principal Mary-Lou Davidson said the school was in good heart while it waited to see where it would be rebuilt. “It’s an important decision. We want one that has the best outcome for the school.” Last year, the diocese decided the school would not return to its North Pde site because it remained at risk of liquefaction induced subsidence and lateral spreading. The Bishop of Christchurch is the proprietor of the school. Bishop Barry Jones initiated the process of deciding where the school would be rebuilt. However, he passed away in February. A diocese spokeswoman said there was no time frame for when a new bishop would be appointed and it was highly confidential. “It’s a highly consultative process, with both lay and clergy to find a suitable candidate.”

LEARNERS: During the week-long workshop pupils learnt to play many instruments.

SOUND: Pupils learnt how to use their bodies to create percussion. LITTLE GARDENERS: Beckenham School’s gardening group have been getting their hands dirty creating a vegetable garden. Over the next couple of weeks, the pupils will continue working on the gardens by building them up and making a scarecrow.

STAR STUDENT: Ella Wells was awarded the Barrington Kip McGrath star of the month for her hard work. Her tutors said she is self-motivated and works well independently to complete her class work and homework. They said she has made excellent progress in English and is a pleasure to teach because of her kind personality and her willingness to work hard.

EQC UPDATE

KEEPING YOU INFORMED | NOVEMBER 2016

EQC pays $495 million in the past year to settle Canterbury claims

Canterbury students head to Chile for earthquake conference Five engineering students from University of Canterbury will be attending the World Conference on Earthquake Engineering (16WCEE) in Chile this January thanks to sponsorship from EQC and the NZ Society for Earthquake Engineers (NZSEE). EQC’s Research Strategy and Investment Manager Richard Smith says the sponsorship goes partway to supporting students and practitioners to attend the conference, which is the preeminent gathering of engineers involved in seismic resistant design. “WCEE is to earthquake engineers what the Olympics are to sport. This opportunity gives these students exposure to ideas and knowledge from around the globe as well as the chance to forge international connections that will be of value to their research and to New Zealand. “EQC plays an important role in funding and facilitating research about natural hazard risk. Part of that is making sure we have researchers within New Zealand who have the capability to undertake that research.” Mechanical engineering PhD student Jarrod Cook says the chance to attend 16WCEE will be invaluable. “I’m exploring ways a ratcheting, tension-only device can reduce the motion experienced by buildings during an earthquake, and therefore limit the damage and impact to people as well as enabling buildings to stay open after the event. WCEE is the premier conference in earthquake engineering so this is a great way to share my ideas, get critical feedback and see what others are doing.”

EQC Chief Executive Ian Simpson

The Earthquake Commission paid out nearly half a billion dollars to settle claims in Canterbury in the year to 30 June 2016, its recently released annual report shows. The annual report includes lots of detail about the work EQC has been carrying out in Canterbury in the past year. Figures in the report show that in the 2015/16 financial year, EQC paid out $495 million in claims for the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence. This total was made up of $441 million for residential building claims (both for cash settlements and managed repairs), $46 million for residential land claims and $8 million for contents claims. IN THE FINANCIAL YEAR TO 30 JUNE 2016 EQC PAID OUT

$495 MILLION MADE UP OF $441 MILLION FOR RESIDENTIAL BUILDING CLAIMS, $46 MILLION FOR RESIDENTIAL LAND CLAIMS AND $8 MILLION FOR CONTENTS CLAIMS.

EQC has now spent $9.4 billion (including claim handling expenses, excluding GST) in its response to the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes. This sum has been financed from the Natural Disaster Fund and by the reinsurance cover EQC had negotiated prior to the earthquakes. EQC recovered about $444 million of the cost of Canterbury claims, largely from international reinsurers, in 2015/16. EQC also paid out $25 million for claims other than those from the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes. This includes $4.7 million for claims from the February 2016 earthquakes.

AT 30 JUNE 2016, EQC HAD

COMPLETED REPAIRS ON MORE THAN 67,000 HOMES, SETTLED 187,000 CONTENTS CLAIMS, COMPLETED CLAIMS FOR LAND DAMAGE TO 66,000 PROPERTIES.

In Canterbury, as at 30 June 2016, EQC had completed repairs on more than 67,000 homes, settled 187,000 contents claims and completed claims for land damage to 66,000 properties. “By the end of the year we aim to have cash settled the more than 14,000 claims from the February 2016 earthquakes,” says Chief Executive Ian Simpson. Mr Simpson reaffirmed EQC’s ongoing commitment to Canterbury in 2017. “In the upcoming year, EQC will continue to be present in Canterbury resolving remedial requests on properties where we have managed a repair. There is also a range of administrative and financial tasks to be completed.”

AS AT 30 JUNE 2016, EQC HAD PAID OUT

$9.4 BILLION IN RESPONSE TO THE 2010-2011 CANTERBURY EARTHQUAKES. THIS MONEY CAME FROM THE NATURAL DISASTER FUND AND REINSURANCE.

Mr Simpson says that EQC has adequate funds to continue to operate and to meet its financial obligations and settle claims. “There is always a high level of uncertainty when it comes to settling claims. For instance with home repairs, the true extent of damage may only become clear once repairs begin and tradies start ripping off weatherboards or lifting floorboards.

WCEE is held every four years and provides attendees with the opportunity for a global exchange of knowledge, ideas, research results and practical experience. As well as students from Canterbury, EQC and NZSEE are jointly sponsoring the attendance of five students from Auckland University and four industry representatives from across New Zealand. From left to right: Jarrod Cook, Pavan Aninthaneni and Amir Malek are three of five University of Canterbury students heading to Chile for the World Conference on Earthquake Engineering this January.

IN ADDITION, AS AT 30 JUNE 2016 EQC HAD PAID OUT

$4.7 MILLION FOR CLAIMS ARISING FROM THE FEBRUARY 2016 EARTHQUAKES IN CANTERBURY.

“Because of this uncertainty, we have built a margin into our estimates of what the Canterbury claims will cost. “In the event that we did need to use all of this margin, the Crown has confirmed in writing that it will meet its obligations under the Earthquake Commission Act to ensure that EQC can meet all its liabilities as they fall due,” Mr Simpson says. The EQC Annual Report shows that EQC received about $280 million in premiums and spent $210 million on expenses, excluding claims payments and claims handling expenses for the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence. “Our largest expense was the $150 million in premiums for reinsurance, which currently provides New Zealand with access to $4.69 billion in cover for natural disasters, once the cost of these events exceeds the deductible,” Mr Simpson says. A copy of the EQC Annual Report 2015/16 can be downloaded from the EQC website.

Bowling in Beckenham for 100 years Barry Chapman looks at Beckenham Bowling Club’s upcoming centenary ROLL OUT the band and raise the flag, Beckenham Bowling Club is celebrating 100 years of giving enjoyment to the many hundreds of players who have taken part in the club’s activities over that time. There will not be a message from the queen, but such an achievement is nonetheless one that will be celebrated with pride by past and present members alike in the coming weeks, with past members attending from around New Zealand and Australia. The club was established on part of the old Heathcote (Opawaho as it was previously known) River bed, which had become a rubbish dump. On November 7, 1916, a meeting of interested parties was called by Ernie Chegwin, with the idea of establishing a lawn bowls club. Things moved very quickly. A committee was set up to establish the club and begin negotiations with the council to obtain the use of the derelict ground. By March 1917, the green was prepared and sown with the first bowls being rolled up in the following October. A magnificent feat, all accomplished by volunteer labour. And the fact that this took place in the middle of World War 1 made it all the more impressive. The club grew over the following years and saw the establishment of the first women’s bowling club in Christchurch in October 1931. It became obvious that the club was outgrowing its facilities and, in April 1945, a second green was established at the club’s present site in Waimea Tce. Then followed a winter green of compacted soil covered with sawdust that saw

hardy players in their overcoats playing the sport they loved in the middle of winter. With two sites, it required doubling up on equipment and this, along with green problems, led to the laying of a second green on the new site, which saw the club shift in full in June 1976 and the original site was reverted back to the city council. The volunteer aspect which saw the club established continued as the club grew. This was tested to the upmost when, in 1960, a decision was made to replace the old army hut that was the club pavilion with a new building that incorporated a three rink indoor surface – one of the first at that time. This was a huge undertaking for mainly retired members who offered their skills to complete this in only 10 months. The building has seen additions and renovations since, but has served the club well right up to today’s requirements. It also came through the earthquakes with only minor damage and the club was able to continue using it apart from when the repairs took place. As with all clubs, we have seen some real characters in our ranks who are still talked about today. We have also had some top players in our membership over the years, including New Zealand and Canterbury representatives. Our centre title lists are very impressive for a club that has never featured in the “top clubs” of Christchurch. We have undoubtedly made our mark both on and off the green. With sporting clubs’ facing uncertain futures, due to seven-day trading, both partners working and the large amount of other attractions that take up today’s recreation time, the club has looked to ensure we move with the times by setting up an administration to operate in a professional manner. This has proved beneficial for our members and assisted us in linking to the local community through such things as club plans, operational plans and community bowls for non-players, known as Crack

PLAYERS: Beckenham Bowling Club will celebrate its centenary next year.

SPORTS

ORIGINAL BOWLERS: Since the club opened, the membership has grown to include more woman now than in 1917.

A Jack Bowls. Many of these systems have been adopted by other bowling clubs around the country. All of this contributed to the club earning titles like club of the year and administrator of the year for New Zealand. The club is very proud of achieving these and other awards, including Bowls New Zealand and Sport Canterbury gold awards. Today, as we look back over the last 100 years and congratulate ourselves on our achievements, we are also very mindful of looking to the future and

providing what sports people and the local community want. Doing so allows the club to look positively towards the next 25 years. As a club, we welcome the local community to make use of these first-class facilities. We provide a social and friendly environment for all people, from families to school-aged children to those in their later years who are looking for a way to make friends and enjoy the sport at whatever level they desire.

ACHIEVERS

Standout league Dancer earns new shoes player recognised with award BALLET DANCER Ayiana Lo-Fo-Wong missed out on a scholarship – but a judge was so impressed with her performance she decided to pay for her pointe shoes for a year. The 14-year-old, of Beckenham, applied for the People’s Choice AMP Scholarship recently in the hope of covering some costs for her ballet lessons, costumes and shoes. Ayiana is a full-time Canterbury Ballet student. She made it into the top five in the North Canterbury region, but when she missed out on the scholarship, one of the judges, Dorothy McLennan, offered to pay for her ballet shoes for a year. “I was impressed with the discipline, dedication and confidence shown by Ayiana, so I really wanted to help her cover some of the many costs involved in pursuing her ballet career,” Ms McLennan said. For Ayiana, this was a big boost to her confidence and will help equip her for an audition video for the New York-based American Ballet Theatre, as part of its summer school programme. “It makes me feel people care about my passion and support

DANCER: Ayiana goes through, roughly, four pairs of pointe shoes a year, practising ballet up to five days a week on top of performing in shows.

me,” she said. Ayiana’s mum Jaimita de Jongh said her daughter’s ballet shoes cost $125 a pair. And she goes through roughly four pairs a year. “I was really proud of her for doing this on her own. We supported her but she did the interview and impressed them herself,” Ms de Jongh said. Ayiana has been dancing for Canterbury Ballet since she was four-and-a-half, and after her mother took her to see Southern

Ballet perform The Snow Queen when she was three-years-old. “We thought it was just a phase, but she kept asking and asking for us to take her to ballet lessons, so eventually we did. Our lives revolve around ballet” Ms de Jongh said. The next step for Ayiana is to play the lead role of Aurora in Canterbury Ballet’s production of Sleeping Beauty next month. “In that case, we’ll have to do some serious fundraising.”

„„ By Gordon Findlater THE LINWOOD Keas won a number of awards at the recent Canterbury Rugby League awards held at the Hornby Working Men’s Club. Alani Kikoi (right) picked up the biggest individual award of the night, named the Canterbury Sportsperson of the Year. The hooker was a standout for the Keas this season, helping the team on its way to winning both the minor premiership and Pat Smith Trophy in the Massetti Cup. He also represented the Canterbury Bulls. Awards also went to Daniel Hartley, who won the Turner and Le Brun Cup, which is awarded to the top point scorer in the Massetti Cup. Keas and Bulls coach Andrew Auimatagi was also recognised for leading the club to this year’s title, winning the John Coffey Cup – Coach of the Year award. The club also had reason for celebration last week. Keas and Bulls centre Matt Sauni has been given a pre-season contract with the Warriors following an outstanding year.

SPORTS

Sauni recently played for the New Zealand Residents and made an impression on Warriors reserve grade coach Ricky Henry. He will join the team later this month.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

We have relocated to a

brand new location

A beautiful smile makes all the difference when you first meet someone, whether it is in a business setting or at a social gathering. That is why choosing the right dentist is an important decision. The caring team of experienced dentists team at Smile Concepts provide painless treatment. Plus, the personal touch they offer by taking time to go over all your treatment options and associated costs means those who fear a dental surgery will be immediately put at ease. Smile Concepts is proud of its patient service. Their knowledgeable staff members use safe and proven procedures, the latest technology, materials and philosophies to enhance your teeth and smile. They also actively engage with their customers and take regular feedback. For example, in recent months, customers complained about earthquake-related shaking at the

surgery. Taking these complaints seriously, they have now moved to their newly renovated premises with new repelling of the foundations at 104 Colombo Street, Sydenham, where ample parking is available and the bus stop is close by. Smile Concepts welcomes customers from across Canterbury, and with the variety of services offered as well as a compassionate, patient-centered approach, it is well worth driving the extra mile.

They also have a dental hygienist, who will help to keep gums healthy and advise on healthy oral habits. Some food, drink and medicines can stain our teeth over time and teeth whitening has become one of the most sought-after cosmetic dental procedures today.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours Raewyn Clegg duration and would generally fit into Registered Teacher of low to medium risk Piano and Theory of area.

when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

Coming to New Zealand to pursue his dream of becoming a mechanic, Janaka said he tried different automotive courses around the country but only found the right course for him at SIT. “I was so lucky to find the right place, the

Life skills programme for children.

right course and the right tutors [at SIT], from all of the other places where I tried within NZ,” “The best opportunity the course gave me was the live practical experience and institutions with proper techniques from the tutors who are qualified and have long term experience in the same trade.” Janaka said he has already received an opportunity to enter the workforce and start his career. “I think I have followed the right track, by the time I finished I got a job offer from the biggest car company in Christchurch, so I have already planned to join them and enjoy working with what I have studied.” For any enquires phone 349 3645 or call in and see us at 60 Waterloo Road.
