OVERGROWN: Kersten Ching stands in a forest of over grown weeds at the Sydenham Cemetery. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Call to clean up cemetery „„ By Caitlin Miles ONE OF the city’s oldest cemeteries is overgrown with weeds and the graves and headstones are breaking away. The Somerfield Residents’ Association was scheduled to discuss the problems at the Sydenham Cemetery at its meeting last night. Chairwoman Julie Tobbell said she would like to see the city council consider doing mainte-

nance work on the graves. “I feel it would be nice in their plans to look after some of the older ones. It is tricky, though, as it has to be respectful,� Mrs Tobbell said. Last year, the residents’ association held four events to get the community involved in the clean up and weeding of the graves. “It’s a big cemetery; it takes a lot of time to do it and clean it up,� she said.

Local resident Kersten Ching wants the city council to step in and help. “It has a lot of history there and it deserves to be respected,� Ms Ching said of the cemetery, which opened in 1896. It is the family of the deceased person’s responsibility to keep the grave sites and burial plots maintained and tidy. “Elderly people struggle to weed the plots and some don’t

have any family so the sites are left to become over grown,� Ms Ching said. She said all the heritage the plots should be better looked after. “Soon you won’t be able to see the headstones through the weeds,� she said. The residents’ association try and encourage the community to help clean up the graves, but Ms Ching said it shouldn’t be the community’s responsibility.

“Why can’t people serving community service be used to tidy the plots?� she said. The city council has contractors to clean around the graves and maintain the cemetery, not individual plots.

Tuesday February 14 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

YOU GENERALLY don’t get anywhere without working hard - and testament to that is young Hoon Hay gymnast Stella Ashcroft (see page 8). The 14-year-old is off to the United States to compete in the World Olympics Gymnastic Academy Classic in Dallas, followed by the Houston National Invitational in Galveston. She raised almost $4000 to get there, and she’s been training upward of 30 hours a week. Presumably, there’s school work to cope with as well. That’s fairly amazing for a 14-year-old in my books. She is one of 12 gymnasts from the Christchurch School of Gymnastics who are set to compete in two international competitions, so that’s a big bouquet for the club. And, a bouquet for the CashmereSpreydon Community Board which chipped with $500 to help Stella get there. – Barry Clarke

News ​Battle

to lower speed by schools

Fashion „„ By Caitlin Miles SOMERFIELD SCHOOL’S principal wants the law changed to lower speed limits outside schools. Denise Torrey (below) said the city councils’ current plan of lowering speed limits based on a school’s surroundings is a good way of improving safety but she wants the law changed to ‘dramatically lower speed limits” around all schools. The school has wanted the speed reduced around it since before the September 2010 earthquake due to safety concerns for the pupils and last week the Spreydon Cashmere Community Board approved the installation of 40km/h electronic flashing signs to go around the school. The flashing signs will go on Studholme, Somerfield and Bard Sts and non-flashing signs at the end of the school speed zones at the end of Studholme St and on Tainui St. A school zone is an area where the speed is reduced to 40km/h during times when pupils are arriving and leaving. Any other time the usual speed limit ap-

plies. Currently the school is in a 50km/h speed limit zone. Somerfield School is third on the city council’s list of 18 schools prioritised for school speed limit changes. The installation and the signs are expected to cost $50,500, and be implemented this year. The city council has only $120,000 a year to spend on school zones. The cost covers up to four zones across the city a year.

Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s Catholic schools, both on Ferry Rd, and Linwood Avenue School have all been asking for lower speed limits. None of them feature on the city council’s list. City council operations transport manager Steffan Thomas said schools were prioritised based a number of factors relating to the road environment outside a school. “The list is reviewed regularly and the ranking of an individual school can change due to the

In Brief PLAYGROUND UPGRADE Linwood Park playground is getting an upgrade. The playground in the park was fenced off last year for city council staff to carry out a safety check on the equipment. Structural repairs are currently being done by contractors and the work is expected to cost $4000. CARS BURNT OUT Firefighters called to a car fire on Saturday morning in Addington were surprised to find three vehicles burning. They were called at about 2.10am to Spencer St after reports of a car on fire. A fire communications spokesman said it was a “bit of surprise” when they found three. The cars were extinguished without incident and police are investigating. EMERGENCY TEAM MEETS The Somerfield Residents’ Association has joined with the Lower Cashmere Residents’ Association to create the Somerfield Cashmere Emergency Response Team. At today’s scheduled meeting, members will discuss emergency plans for the area and how to look after people in the community, including setting up evacuations and roles within the team.

Ms Torrey said if the speed limit was reduced for all schools there might not be a need for the signs, as people would know it’s the same for every school. Based on the city council being able to install about three zones per year, Cashmere High School and Christchurch South Intermediate will get lower speed zones in 2018, Aidenfield Christian School in 2019 and St Martins School in 2020.

News Opawa Berry Fest draws a crowd THE WARM weather bought thousands to the annual Opawa Berry Fest last weekend. Organisers said this was the biggest turn out to the sixth annual event, with more growers and people than ever before. Market organiser Doug Hesp said Berry Fest was held to entice people to the market. “The idea behind the Berry Fest is not only to showcase the region’s berry fruit, but an opportunity for people new to the market to see the fantastic range of fresh, local produce and food products available every Sunday,” Mr Hesp said. Eight berry growers from across Canterbury brought a

large range of berries selling out, including strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, boysenberries, loganberries, blackberries and blackcurrants. Market organiser Doug Hesp said one grower sold out in under 2.5 hours. “One grower alone sold over 900kg of berries… when he arrived at the market and showed me what was inside his truck he said he’d never sell it all… he sold his last punnet of strawberries at about 11.15am.” There was also face painting to keep the children entertained, along with real fruit ice creams to enjoy during the hot weather.

PAINTING: Children lined up to get their faces painted, with butterflies a popular favourite. BERRIES: Vendors made a roaring trade, one selling 900kg’s within three hours.

CROWDS: The warm sunny weather brought the crowds to the market, enjoying coffee and the many different berries for sale. YUMMY: Six-year-old Amy and nine-year-old Millie of Governors Bay School went along to the Berry Fest, enjoying a real fruit berry icecream in the hot weather.

BUTTERFLY: Three-year-old Bella from Abacus Montessori Preschool in Woolston had her face painted at the market

PROTECTED: To protect Risingholme Community Centre from the elements and further damage the building has been covered in scaffolding and plastic wrap while it is being restored. Fire damage to the building (right) delayed the start of work while insurance was sorted out, but now work has begun on the building.. ​

Heritage restorations are under way „„ By Ashleigh Monk THE REBUILD of fire and earthquake-damaged Risingholme Community Centre has finally begun, after it was put on hold last year. The removal of fire damaged parts of the building combined with designs that have yet to be completed last year meant the city council couldn’t confirm when work was going to start, but it has now. The Opawa building was damaged during the February 22, 2011 earthquake and has been out of use because it needed extensive repairs. The roof and upper stories

were damaged in a suspected arson attack on June 6. Scaffolding and plastic wrap were put around the building to protect it. The city council confirmed in July it would rebuild the heritage facility. City council heritage build programme manager Richie Moyle said after waiting for sign off from insurance before work on the restoration could begin. The fire and earthquake insurance issues have been kept separate. The centre had been insured for $5 million. The hall designs have been completed, and staff made

changed to the new toilet and bathroom layout. Mr Moyle said the city council plan to have the building open early next year. Before the building was damaged it was used for a range of community education and school programmes. The Sign of the Takahe is in the last stages of repair work, with it expected to be open this month. “A new date will be supplied once the latest design changes have been made and consents submitted,” Mr Moses said. “It will be great to have a beautiful icon return to the city,” Mr NEAR COMPLETION: Sign of the Takahe is expected to be Moyle said. opened later this month, with work in the final stages.

Missing horse mystery a case of repeat vandalism „„ By Caitlin Miles JADE – the missing play horse from Charleston Reserve – is not missing, it was taken away because of vandalism. There was initially some confusion over the missing horse, which was supposed to be with its partner, Charlie, in the Waltham reserve. Charleston Residents’ Association chairman John Hoskin said his wife saw it leave the reserve on the back of a city council truck and it hasn’t been seen since. However, the city council said the horse was vandalised on “more than one occasion.” Because of this, it was taken out of the reserve after a report was received stating it had been damaged again. City council neighbourhood and sports parks operation manager, Al Hardy, said because the vandals targeted the horse, it was not replaced. Mr Hoskin said he hoped Jade would be returned or replaced by the city council after asking the Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board

to look into it. Mr Hardy said the horse wouldn’t be returned, but it would look at putting something else in its place. “Given the history of vandalism with this particular piece of equipment, we are

investigating an alternative piece of equipment for the horse’s replacement,” Mr Hardy said. For now, the remaining horse, Charlie, will be without its partner while the city council looks at other options.

„„ By Caitlin Miles A PATHWAY will not be installed at Edmonds Park due to neighbours concerns that it would be hidden during the night time. As part of Bells Creek flood mitigation work, the park in Woolston is being developed to help ease flooding in the area. The city council’s Land Drainage Recovery Programme investigated options for flood mitigation in Bells Creek and recommend a package of works to reduce flooding. Stage one includes a new detention pond within the northern half of Edmonds Park where the sports fields are currently located. By realigning the creek to run through Edmonds Park, it will ease flooding in the surrounding properties. The section of park

planned for the dry channel was chosen as it is currently not used. A sealed footpath on the southern side of the landscape planting was also planned to provide access from Aldwins Rd into the park. A small wooden footbridge across the realigned Bells Creek at the eastern side of the park would allow pedestrians to cross from the northern to the southern side of the creek. Councillor Yani Johanson said nearby residents were worried about safety if the path was not well lit during the night and wanted to see it changed. The Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board had originally signed off on the landscaping plans but the project team assigned to the work had met with nearby residents and decided not to install the pathway to ease their concerns.

Addington church turns 150 „„ By Caitlin Miles THE OLDEST church in Addington is about to celebrate its 150th year. The Anglican Church of St Mary the Virgin was built in 1867, in the centre of Church Square. It has a long history, surviving many historical moments and withstanding the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes. In 1863, deputy chairman of the Canterbury Association, Henry Sewell, gifted five acres (2ha) to the Diocese of Christchurch for a church, parsonage and glebe. A church was built on the land and opened its doors on February 19, 1867. It was named St Mary the Virgin in 1870 and doubled in size in 1880 for the growing congregation. Due to ageing, the church required repair work, which was carried out in the 1960s. Current priest in charge, Reverend Mandy Neil, said the repairs played a part in the historic church surviving the earthquakes. Rev Neil said planning the celebrations had been 18

months in the making. “Everyone has played a part in organising the festivities . . . it’s a community-focused church,” Rev Neil said. The celebrations start on Saturday night with a dinner before a day of celebrations on Sunday. “The biggest part is the celebrations on Sunday. It’s exactly 150 years since the church started,” Rev Neil said. A thanks-giving meal will be held followed by a community tea party from 1pm at the church grounds. Rev Neil said it was important to recognise and celebrate CELEBRATE: The Anglican Church of St Mary the Virgin the people who started the Addington community, which will commemorate 150 years this weekend. led to the church. “These were really brave people; it’s about showing appreciation for what they did,” Rev Neil said. Community celebrations will be held at Church Square on Sunday from 1pm. It will include performances from Addington Brass and Simon Hart as well as entertainment for the children and a barbecue sausage sizzle. There will also be an ice-cream and coffee cart on site.

Bamford helps Keas to victory in his final game „„ By Gordon Findlater THE LINWOOD Keas saw off former Canterbury Bulls captain Chris Bamford in style by winning the Crosbie Nines on Saturday. The Keas 17-12 win over the Hornby Panthers in the final was Bamford’s last for the club. He left for Australia yesterday to play for Orange CYMS in New South Wales. “It was a good way to send him off,” said Keas coach Andrew Auimatagi. Bamford and the Keas made it a perfect fortnight in the nineman game, backing up their win in the Rolleston Nines last month with a perfect run of results at Crosbie Park. The Keas went unbeaten in the morning pool play, accounting for the Riccarton Knights 23-0,

the Aoraki Eels 35-14 and the Halswell Hornets 17-15. They then defeated the Celebration Lions 23-8 in the quarter-final before a rematch with the Hornets in the semifinal. The encounter was just as close as their pool play encounter with the Keas prevailing 15-12. It also doubled as a rematch of the Rolleston Nines final. The Hornets made their way to the semi-final courtesy of an impressive 25-18 win over defending champions the Papanui Tigers in the quarterfinals. “I was really impressed with Halswell. They’ve struggled a bit recently in the 13-man game but they’ve got a really tight-knit bunch and they had a couple of new recruits playing really well,” said Auimatagi.

The Keas then met the Panthers in the final. The Panthers defeated Nelson Combined 23-13, and the Aranui Eagles 10-0, on their way to the final match. In a rematch of last year’s club final, the Keas once again proved too strong for the Panthers. “It was really pleasing after a long day,” said Auimatagi “It’s tough to get through six games but the boys dug deep and got the result we wanted.” Keas prop Alex Todd was named Crosbie Nines’ MVP, while Panthers lock Corey Lawrie was named MVP in the grand-final game. The Keas will now turn their attention to defending the Pat Smith Trophy in the Canterbury ON THE MOVE: Linwood Keas’ Chris Bamford is heading to New club competition which starts on South Wales to play for Orange CWMS.

Tough training leads to success „„ By Ashleigh Monk and Caitlin Miles WITH UP to 30 hours of gym training a week, life for a young Hoon Hay gymnast isn’t easy. But the hard work has paid off for Stella Ashcroft, 14, and eleven other gymnasts from the Christchurch School of Gymnastics who are set to compete in two international competitions in Texas next week. Stella leaves on Friday to compete in the World Olympics Gymnastic Academy Classic in Dallas, followed by the Houston National Invitational in Galveston. Stella needed to raise $3926 to cover her own costs. The Cashmere-Spreydon Community Board helped with her fundraising efforts by providing a $500 grant from the youth achievement and development scheme. The club aimed have spent months fundraising by selling pasta, fudge, sausage sizzles and selling items on TradeMe.

At the same point, they’ll get to travel from different gyms and see what those scenarios are like for those kids. “Some of these kids who are already on that international path, we’ll probably see these kids one day at a world championship or something else.” He said the gymnasts would also have plenty of opportunities to train with professionals during the trip. It’s not the first time Stella has competed on an international scale. She competed in the Junior Commonwealth Championships in Namibia last year where she won gold on the beam, silver on the floor and bronze as part of the team. She was also part of the New Zealand Women’s Artistic Team who competed at the Pacific Rim competition where she achieved a bronze medial for her work on the vault. Stella hopes to represent New Zealand at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The gymnasts will return on February 26. PHOTO: Simon Runting

KIDSTUFF GOOD CAUSE: Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue is fundraising to buy a new vehicle to help rescue and re-home puppies like these.

Dog rescue charity in need of new wheels „„ By Bridget Rutherford CHRISTCHURCH Bull Breed Rescue has been offered a free vehicle for six months while it fundraises to buy its own. The Woolston charitable organisation which rescues and re-homes bull-breed dogs is raising money to buy a new vehicle. Founder Abbey van der Plas said volunteers had been using her own car – but it had recently broken down. “Because I’m a volunteer,

I just don’t have the funds to repair it or replace it,” she said. Cars Under $7990 owner Hamish Cross has offered the organisation a Toyota station wagon for six months until it had raised enough money to buy its own. “That’s an amazingly generous offer. He is a really big fan of what we do.” Ms van der Plas said the offer gave her more time to raise the $10,000 needed to buy either a van or double

cab ute, and modify it so it could carry dogs securely. She said they used a vehicle everyday, whether it be picking up dogs, dropping them off at the vet, or taking food or supplies to the foster families. So far, the Givealittle page she set up had raised nearly $2000. •If you would like to donate, visit https:// givealittle.co.nz /cause/ cbbrneedsavehicle

Progress counts in maths class If you’re a parent of school-aged children, chances are that there is a subject they just don’t like. And for many kids, that subject is maths. Like many parents, Dale and Kirsty found that their daughter Sayler, 8, just didn’t understand maths and it was proving difficult to keep up at school. So, Dale and Kirsty decided it was time to give Sayler that extra help she needed and enrolled her in the Kumon Maths Programme at their local centre in Fendalton. It was during the August Free Trial, and so they decided to see if their older son Zach might enjoy Kumon Maths also. Six months later and both children are still doing daily worksheets with Kumon. Maths is now one of Zach’s favourite subjects and Sayler has demonstrated a real motivation for improving in her studies. That Kumon worksheets are timed makes this easy for Sayler to see, ‘She is really keen to beat her time. I think having those little goals certainly help’ said Dale. A sense of achievement can go a long way when it comes to engaging with maths. ‘Everyone likes it when they have success, don’t they? Being able to see that progress is great’ said Kirsty. ‘Kumon focuses on maths skills - exclusively and expertly’ said Marette Wells who runs the Kumon Fendalton Education Centre. ‘The ability of the student does not matter; Kumon brings confidence as they grow into their potential’. Kumon follows a method that develops self-learning in children which is important to parents like Kirsty. ‘I think it’s really important that our children know that if they need to find out how to do something then they have the skills to work it out.’ For more information contact your local Kumon Education Centre or visit our website nz.kumonglobal.com

  FLAME FILES

Too many near misses a warning sign „„ By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer MOST PEOPLE will have read of the horrendous death of the young man in Woodham Rd from catching his clothing on fire. The final cause is still being investigated but this is a good example of something I have come to realise over  years of being a fire investigator.  That is the number of ‘near misses’ is many, many times the number of incidents we attend.  Most of these ‘near misses’ occur without anyone

being aware they have happened. But every now and then a perfect series of circumstances line up in a row and the result is fire.  Sometimes, like in Woodham Rd, with a tragic outcome. A less serious outcome in Oram Ave, New Brighton, is a good example.  It’s summer time.  So the placing of a picture frame on the top of a freestanding fireplace is not unusual or even dangerous.  Until we get an unseasonal cold snap and someone lights the fire to warm the house.  Then goes out.  In this

case the result was only a smokelogged house. But one or two more circumstances, like it being bedtime, and perhaps a few drinks and we could have had another tragedy. A slightly closer near miss on the same day in Bishopdale saw some sleeping occupants remaining fast asleep as their smoke alarm shrieked.  In this case it was food left cooking on the stove.  The alarm was overheard by a neighbour and 111 called.  Without the call?  Who knows?

Back to school with confidence At Kumon, students begin study at a level that allows them to build confidence from day one. Students progress through the programmes based on their ability rather than their age. Over time, students can study advanced material confidently and independently for success in school and everyday life. Contact your local Kumon Centre to hear how we can support your child’s learning.

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 skin-tightening 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, www.transformclinic.co.nz, 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. Phone 343-2880 to enquire about treatments or make an appointment.

RESTAURANT & CAFÉ

AN ECLECTIC ESTABLISHMENT As featured in February STYLE Taste: Vanessa Ortynsky discovers Urban Corner Cafe has much more to offer than initially meets the eye. ON the former site of the Bower Hotel in New Brighton stands the Urban Corner Cafe (alongside with e Bower), which is one of the most eclectic establishments in the city. Urban Corner is uniquely Christchurch in that it’s constructed of 18 shipping containers. It’s a standout on the landscape, situated near the residential red zone and overlooking the Avon River. Upon setting foot inside this spacious establishment, you immediately forget about its modular construction methods. With its warm and family-friendly vibe, Urban Corner has become a community hub for New Brighton locals. e restaurant serves up brunch, lunch and dinner on a daily basis. Menu items are seasonal and the Pork Belly Burger served with coleslaw and cranberry sauce is a must-try for summer. ere’s also a kids menu and a playground outside, catering to mums looking for a place to bring the little ones for a play date. ere’s Farmyard Animal Day with pony rides on the last Sunday of every month in summer, weather permitting, which includes a Llama with a bad haircut and ponies of all sizes. As well as a separate shipping container that can be hired for kids parties. With plenty of entertainment for the older crowd as

well, ‘Stitch n Bitch’ is hosted by a local artists and is every second Monday. It’s an excellent spot to discover new Kiwi artists and local talent. e dining room is adorned with brightly-coloured kitschy decor. You can purchase any of the art that lines the walls of this establishment. You’re sure to get a laugh out of some of the quirky tongue-in-cheek posters and signage. Sharing the premises with e Bower proves advantageous as Urban Corner features an extensive beer and wine list without the central-city price tag. e Friday menu comes with a $20 price tag, there is always events and special deals - including Wednesday and ursday feed the family of four for $50. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for even more stellar specials. If you are looking for a takeaway, there is a full range of cabinet available too. A little bit different from your traditional cafe and bar, this friendly place is sure to delight. If you’re looking for a local eatery, or keen to experience the warmth and hospitality of the eastern suburbs. Urban Corner is a sure bet. Urban Corner - 487 New Brighton Rd, phone 03 388 3649. Open 7 days, 9am until late. www.urbancorner.co.nz
