Pages Rd footpath repairs could be delayed years „„ By Sarla Donovan PAGES RD’S earthquakedamaged footpaths, near the New Brighton bridge, are unlikely to be completely repaired for several years. The city council last week allocated $30,000 towards repairing 300m of footpath on one side of the road in its draft annual plan. From Anzac Dr to the Pages Rd bridge, the road and footpaths remain damaged in spite of the rest of Pages Rd being fixed. New Brighton resident Jo Zervos said $30,000 wasn’t enough. “That whole piece of road needs doing up. It’s absolutely disgusting. I’m constantly seeing people pushing prams or on motorised wheelchairs trying to negotiate it. People coming out to New Brighton hit that and it’s like ‘welcome to the ghetto’.� Ms Zervos organised a 450-signature petition last year in a bid to repair the footpaths. However, she did not present the petition to the CoastalBurwood Community Board. Ms Zervos said yesterday, she emailed the board about the petition and believed it was their responsibility to take it from there.

David East

Glenn Livingstone

Burwood Ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone questioned how safe the footpaths were for the elderly. “They could trip and fall, break hips, end up in hospital. It doesn’t make sense to have the rest of Pages Rd rebuilt but not this.� He said the reason the city council wasn’t willing to fix the road completely was because it could need realigning in a few years time, once the Pages Rd bridge was rebuilt. He said the council didn’t want to pay for significant repairs now only to have to pay again once the bridge is rebuilt. It’s likely the bridge will be shifted further up or down the Avon River once future red zone use has been decided on, requiring the road to be realigned. However, that is likely to be

several years away, with funding for the bridge replacement yet to be awarded. Cr Livingstone said costs for rebuilding the bridge were estimated at close to $13 million. Coastal Ward city councillor David East said while any allocation was good, the footpaths were “barely navigable.â€? He questioned if the $30,000 was enough to repair the footpath on both sides and improve the appearance of a key entry point to New Brighton. “It’s important that the image is positive – that section doesn’t convey that. It’s downright scruffy.â€? Cr Livingstone said money allocated by the council in the annual plan was not sufficient for what the community wanted. He was unhappy the road would remain in its current state for years to come. “It’s not a good look; this is the gateway to New Brighton.â€? The city council’s draft annual plan is now open for community consultation. •Should the city council he spending more on repairing the footpaths? Email sarla. donovan@starmedia.kiwi

GOOD NEWS on page 3; not so good news on page 1 today. The good news first. Yes, it’s official – New Brighton’s whale pool will be open by summer. The pool has been an iconic part of the east for decades, so good to get it back into use. Not so good, though, is the state of the roads and footpaths leading into New Brighton. They are an eyesore, but it’ll be years before the bridge and footpaths get fixed. Not good enough on that score. It’s not too late to sign up for the City2Surf on Sunday. It’s a great event, and there will be thousands running, walking, pushing prams and all sorts of other things to get to the finish. On page 7, we have all the details on how to enter. – Barry Clarke

Whale pool open for summer „„ By Sarla Donovan THE WHALE pool and playground in New Brighton should be open by summer. Planning work is under way on the design which the community will be able to make comment on in the next few months. Signage went up on-site last Tuesday to let people know that the project is under way. Said Development Christchurch Ltd chief executive Rob Hall (left): “This is just one aspect of the plan to regenerate New Brighton. We have also been undertaking work to revitalise the commercial centre of the suburb, support wider community initiatives and develop the hot salt water pools.” DCL was set up by the city council in 2015 and is leading the New Brighton regeneration project. “It is good to be starting on the playground,” Mr Hall said. Construction is expected to start in September and finish in November this year. New Brighton Business and Landowners Association head

SUMMER POOL: Project signage for New Brighton’s new whale pool has gone up.

Paul Lonsdale said it was “fantastic” to see the project under way. He added it was important to remember it was part of a broader development strategy, including street regeneration and the hot

salt water pools. Funding for the wider development of the hot salt water pools project has been included in the city council’s draft annual plan 2017/18, which will be open for

public consultation soon. Once residents have had their say on the proposed city budget for the year ahead, the city council will make final decisions at the end of June.

Graffiti panels will cost $25,000 PANELS TO protect the New Brighton War Memorial will cost $25,000. The city council will place protective panels around the memorial to stop vandalism. The clear panels have a film over top of them, which can be replaced if they are defaced, keeping the monuments clean. They can be removed during ceremonies. The Woolston Borough Monument had panels installed last week at a cost of $23,000. A similar protection method has been used on heritage sites, including Oscar Wilde’s tomb in France. City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said some graffiti would still be visible. However, it would sunbleach out over time. The panels are currently being manufactured. No date has yet been set for their installation.

PE teacher a dab hand with Chisnallwood Intermediate School physical education teacher Dan Vann’s love for cricket has taken him all over the world. Two weeks ago he achieved something he never thought possible, a century and a five-wicket haul in the same day. Noah Graham spoke to him What drew you into cricket? It’s been in my family, my grandfather used to be the president of Otago cricket and he was also an umpire, and then my dad played from there. Obviously, my brother and I started playing and just continued on through. I enjoy it, it’s my passion and my job as well. In my holidays and after school I do a bit of cricket coaching. It’s working on a lot of mental training. How does coaching compare to playing? I enjoy it. I still like playing. I’ve always helped people get better at things. Coaching just came as part of that. I actually got into teaching through coaching. I did a bit of cricket coaching when I was younger and people just said I’d make a good primary school teacher. That’s what made me go to Teacher’s College and I followed A CAPTAIN’S KNOCK: Chisnallwood Intermediate School PE it from there. teacher, Dan Vann spends most of his days talking and teaching When did you start playing? cricket.

older guys retired so I became more of a senior player and then eventually I was captain for a couple of years and now I’m the coach and the club captain. I always ran the coaching sessions and have helped the juniors. What’s the best part of playing cricket? It’s probably the camaraderie of playing with your mates. What is the memory that sticks out to you the most? I scored 111 from 74 deliveries and took five for – 47 in one day against Lancaster Park. Since playing I’ve scored three 100s and taken five, five-wicket hauls so I thought there was no way it would have happened in the same day. It was my role in the team is to just to try and play some shots and it just worked that day. I think my highest score for this year was 39 so I was well due a good score, I was not expecting that, though. I bowled in-swing and I think because it was a little bit slower it just beat them. The pitch just suited me and it just worked out.

cricket at home with my younger brother. We used to play against each other a lot. We used to live on a farm so we had a few mates from the area come along and play a bit of backyard cricket. Then we moved into the city when I was a bit older. I actually played at Sumner because I went to Linwood College and it’s not a very good cricket school. My friend’s dad was the president – Ray Steel – so I started playing at the Sumner Cricket Club when I was 15 or 16. I’ve played here for about 16 years. What was it like playing for Sumner when you started? It was good coming to Sumner because the club had a very strong senior team. I used to play with the second team but I would train with the first team. So we had a lot of ex-Canterbury players who would help coach us. I worked my way up into the senior team when I was 18 and then there were about two years when I was known as the ‘specialist’ fielder because that’s all I did. Then a lot of the

the cricket bat and ball

What’s the highest you have ever scored? Last year I got 141. The last couple of years I have been batting at seven because our team has got a good batting order. Between me and a couple of other guys we would come in and have a tee-off at the end. In this particular game we were five wickets down for eight runs and one of the young guys I coached got 87 and I got 141. So we put on a 230-run partnership and we ended up winning by an innings. Do you have any superstitions? I always do the things that we always do. I walk through the gate when you go to bat. I always mark my centre wicket after I hit the boundary. But that’s more of a routine to keep me focused. Who is the team to beat? At the moment Heathcote is our biggest rival. They’re the top club at the moment. They’re just one of the better teams to play. If you beat them you have had a good day. How long have you been a teacher for and what schools have you worked at? I’ve been a teacher at Chisnallwood for nine years. I took a sabbatical in 2012 and was a player and coach in England. I

found the kids were far less into other sports. They loved football but if it wasn’t football they weren’t too keen. I think the schools were very strict on the way you did things. So other than cricket, what else do you like to do? Just any outdoors sports stuff really. I do a bit of snowboarding, golf, I used to play rugby for Sumner as well.

He’s quite a good escape artist but he’s calmed down in the past few years. He’s had a few surgeries. He’s not old, just slowing down a little bit. He is quite well behaved when we’re home. He likes to be around people and doesn’t like to be left alone so he’ll take himself for a walk. My brother and his wife and two kids. He’s two years younger than me. We’re a pretty small family.

Sick bed to City2Surf „„ By Gabrielle Stuart JUST A year ago, Leanne Crawford could barely walk, had lost 30kg, was constantly sick, and had to put both her work and her wedding on hold – and she had no idea what was going wrong. This month, she will take on the 14km The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate event, which she will walk, and she won’t be doing it alone. Her partner, friends and many of the nurses who helped her get on her feet again plan to do the walk beside her – 41 people in total – raising money to help others with the same condition get treatment. The 30-year-old began feeling sick in 2014, but initially doctors did not know what was wrong. It took almost two years for her to be diagnosed and find a treatment, because she was facing a complex mix of parasites in her intestines, crohn’s disease and endometriosis. For much of that time she couldn’t work, and she had to postpone her wedding three times. “It was like my life was turned upside down. It was really, really frightening just not knowing what was going on,” she said. After a Christchurch gastroenterolTURNAROUND: Leanne Crawford has put poor ogy specialist, Steven Ding, diaghealth behind her and is looking forward to the nosed her problems, she has made a City2Surf. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN gradual recovery.

But she said it was only possible because of the help she received, and the diagnosis tools provided by the Canterbury Bowel and Liver Trust. “The things that finally got me well cost a lot of money, so I wanted to give something back,” she said. She has already raised almost $1500 through people sponsoring her run. She said she had never done anything like the City2Surf before, and after being sick for so long being able to cross the finish line would feel like a giant victory. “I’m sure there will be tears,” she said. “I finally feel like I’ve got my life back. I can’t go for drinks or dinner like normal, but I am still able to work, which is amazing.” She works for Bupa as an activity organiser, and said they held her job for her, in spite of the fact she was off work for three months. She has also rescheduled her wedding, and plans to marry her partner of eight years, Craig Corboy, this December. “I’m determined I’m going to get down the aisle this time,” she said. •The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate, Sunday, March 19, 14km or 6km option walk, jog or run, $25 Entries available at Pak’nSave, New World, The Athlete’s Foot, YMCA and online at www.city2surf.co.nz

Firefighters free boy trapped by garage door „„ By Andrew King A BOY in Bromley had to be freed by firefighters after his fingers became trapped in a garage door on Friday. The Woolston fire crew were called at about 8.30am and used a “hooligan bar” to pry open the garage door mechanism to get him free. A hooligan bar is a piece of firefighting equipment, about a metre long, used to pry items open. The boy, who firefighters said was about eight-years-old, had gone into the garage to get something, and when the door closed he become trapped, station officer Nick Brown said. “He was a bit upset but his parents were pleased to see us,” he said. Mr Brown said it was not a regular occurrence but just “another one of those things” firefighters find themselves doing. “Over the years you go to some weird ones,” he said. “We have had calls of people who have gone up on their roof and couldn’t get down.”

„„ By Sarla Donovan THE PASSING of New Brighton identity Frank Hill will be felt by many. The  World War 2 veteran passed away at Christchurch Hospital last Tuesday, aged 95. Mr Hill, who grew up in Sydenham, joined the army as a 16-year-old before moving into the Royal Navy. He then served on an American tanklanding ship in the Atlantic Ocean during the war. In 2015 he was awarded the French Legion of Honour. In an interview with Pegasus Post two years ago, Mr Hill said he joined the war for adventure. “I wasn’t patriotic really; I just wanted some adventure like most people in the forces.” After the war he worked as an electroplater. “We used to make tea sets which were all the rage after the war.” Mr Hill, who was well known in New Brighton, moved to the suburb in 1949 with his Welsh-born wife Mary, whom he brought back to New Zealand after the war. The pair bought a section for $95 and went on to raise two

and supportive member who particularly enjoyed being involved in the annual RSA poppy appeal. Mr Hill was very active up until two years ago. “He would travel to visit RSA clubs around the South Island. He knew everybody.” A regular visitor at the

New Brighton Club, Mr Hill enjoyed playing the pokies and socialising, “especially with women. I like women’s company, I can’t help that.” A funeral service will be held for Mr Hill today at 2pm in the Canterbury Crematorium Chapel, corner of Keighleys Rd and Linwood Ave.

Affordable luxury for your child at Prestons A natural homely preschool located in Prestons subdivision. Catering for the ages 0-5 over 3 rooms, licensed for up to 50 children. We look forward to meeting you and your Family/Whanau and becoming an active part of our community.

New PreschooL offers Nature-based eNviroNmeNt Prestons Preschool, the brand-new preschool that has just opened in the Prestons subdivision, aims to provide a warm and welcoming environment in which all children, parents and whanau feel respected, accepted and have a sense of belonging. head teacher mandy hemopo has many years of experience in the early-learning sector, and she and her fellow trained teachers look forward to meeting new families and children and giving the children an exceptional preschool experience. “we are a small, family-based centre catering for up to 50 children in a natural and nature-based environment,” mandy says. “the interior of our centre is all natural timber and our toys and resources are made from natural materials.” the philosophy of Prestons Preschool is that children learn through exploration - “we believe children are capable explorers and that’s why, for example, we provide openended toys to encourage the children to figure out for themselves how they work. we respect that children are inherently capable learners and our programme reflects this.” the generous-sized, natural outdoor area also allows the children to learn by exploring

their environment, she says, “building relationships with children, parents and whanau is also a vital part of our centre. we understand the importance of linking home and centre life as we recognise that learning begins at home and that the parents are the child’s first teachers.” Prestons Preschool caters for children from 0-5 and has three separate areas according to age groups – 0-2, 2-3.5 and 3.5-5. a cooked vegetarian meal is provided at lunchtime, with the menu being dietitian approved for healthy eating, morning and afternoon tea is also provided. Prestons Preschool has a low teacher to children ratio and offers 20 free hours per week, with only a 3 dollar charge per day for meals. that means children can come for five, four hour sessions a week without any obligation to have them here longer. Prestons Preschool is located close to the primary school and is open from 7.30am to 5.30pm monday to friday. Parents and caregivers are invited to call in and have a chat to mandy about enrolling their child or phone her on 03 3838275 or 0211799372 or email at admin@prestonspreschool.co.nz.

We are a family owned business renowned for providing quality care at affordable prices.

Get prepared for winter Fire risk management officer Mark Thomas talks about the precautions you should take to stay safe as winter approaches Murphy’s Law applies. Last week I talked about my frustration at the number of people still burning rubbish and vegetation in ultra-dry conditions. So what happens? It rains and then instantly turns cold enough to say summer’s over, welcome to winter. And people start lighting their fireplaces, causing more calls, in one case from a disgruntled neighbour, and in another from the house where the fire had been lit because the smoke wasn’t exiting up the chimney, but was filling the home up instead. So in what seems an unusually early cold season, the recommendation is to get your chimney flue swept – now.  Smoky chimneys are one thing, but just about every year at the onset of winter we have house fires caused by fireplaces that

STAY SAFE: Mark Thomas is urging people to get their chimney flues swept before winter to minimise the risk of a house fire.

have sat unused for six months. While we are at it, this is also certainly the time to have electric blankets checked and certified.  There are a couple of appliance firms that provide this service quite cheaply. For peace of mind, it’s a strong recommendation from us that everyone should have the blanket checked annually. I haven’t mentioned kitchen fires for a

while. That’s not because they haven’t been happening, but more because I don’t want to sound like a cracked record.  One third of all house fires start in the kitchen. This week there were three, though unusually, none of them involved ambulance care for house occupants.  Finally, we are just a few weeks from daylight saving ending. Stick smoke alarm batteries on the shopping list now!

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING Christchurch Course Dates 2017 Venue: 32 Birmingham Drive, Middleton

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 duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player 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.
