Work starts to remove Heritage Church rubble „„ By Noah Graham RUBBLE FROM the Sydenham Heritage Church is finally being cleared. The church was controversially demolished after the February 22, 2011, earthquake. More than six years later work has begun to clear the eyesore that sits on the corner of Colombo and Brougham Sts. Sydenham Heritage Trust chairwoman Dorothy Haywood (left) said it was a “wonderful day” that the rubble was finally beginning to be cleared. “I’m thrilled. Absolutely thrilled.” Mrs Haywood said it would not take long for the rubble to be removed from the site. “We are under way and [the contractors] will move quickly. “It should look nice and tidy soon.” The rubble on the church site was supposed to have been moved before Christmas.

However, contractors weren’t signed on until January.

DELICATE: Work to clear rubble from the Sydenham Heritage Church site on the corner of Colombo and Brougham Sts began yesterday as contractors arrived on site, more than six years after the church was demolished. PHOTO: ANDREW KING

The church was built in 1878 and Mrs Haywood said the trust hopes to recover several artefacts important to Sydenham. They include photos and trophies from the old Sydenham School and marble and regular plaques commemorating various people from the area. Once the rubble is shifted the trust wants to make gardens on the site, with long-term plans for a building for the community to use, along with a display of the recovered artefacts and history of Sydenham.

FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK PERSEVERANCE IS the key to getting what you deserve. Eastgate Shopping Centre bus stop users and nearby property owners have shown (p5) that if you don’t back down, someone will listen to you. The bus stop patrons stuck to their guns and demanded they should have the same treatment as other areas and city council has answered with $600,000 weatherproof bus shelters to be installed. On the same page, the Spreydon Neighbourhood Network has too shown their perseverance having asked for a no right hand turn out of the Barrington mall car park to be in place for the past three years. Hopefully, their no-back-down attitude can provide them with the same outcome. – Noah Graham

New classrooms for Cashmere „„ By Noah Graham A CASHMERE school has celebrated the completion of the first phase of its $8 million redevelopment. Cashmere Primary School welcomed Associate Education Minister Nikki Kaye onto the school’s new deck last week with a kapa haka in celebration of a new $3 million two-storey building. The Karamu building, which houses nine classrooms, was completed earlier this year and has been used by the school this term. The building is Gavin the first major step Burn towards transforming the school from traditional classrooms to an adaptive and innovative learning environment, principal Gavin Burn said. Mr Burn said the minister was shown around the school’s new classrooms and facilities by a group of student executives and planted a karamu tree in the school’s garden to commemorate the day. “It was a really successful day, in spite of the bad, wet weather,” he said. “It was just nice to be able to celebrate the building and the

effort that has gone into it.” Mr Burn said with the completion of the Karamu building, the rest of the year will be dedicated to renovating the existing school buildings. Once the redevelopment is complete, the school will have 20 new classrooms for the pupils to use, Mr Burn said. The school’s board of trustees chairman, Brian Ellwood, said the opening of the new building is an acknowledgement of the collaborative effort. “These fantastic new spaces have endless potential, which we are only just beginning to explore together,” he said.

In Brief CAR PARK IN DOUBT A lack of funds could stop a proposed temporary car park on the old Smith St nursery site from going ahead. The LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board is trying to find funds to create a temporary car park on the Smith St site opposite Linwood Park for people to use during the rugby league season. Councillor Yani Johanson said there was a need for parking in the winter as the street is often crowded and can be a danger to people crossing it. ALDER TREE FACES AXE The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has approved the removal of an alder tree outside 18 Claymore St after a resident wrote to the board saying brown, rusty stains were left on her property after it rained. Board chairwoman Sally Buck said the board recommended its removal and are wanting to know about the effects other alder trees are having in the area. LEASE GRANTED The Huntsbury Community Centre has had its 35-year lease granted by the SpreydonCashmere Community Board. The board approved the lease for the community centre to remain at the 30F Huntsbury Ave last week.

Food hub ‘great local initiative’ Woolston Community Centre co-ordinator Carol Brown writes about Michael Reynolds’ ambition to get a selfsustainable food hub in Woolston and the benefits it would bring to the area There has been so much attention on the bad stuff happening around Woolston, it’s time to highlight the fact that there are actually good things going on too. I have stumbled across a great local initiative getting under way. It’s called the Roimata Community Food Hub and it’s proposed to go in to Radley Park as an orchard and community garden. This project is something which I think will benefit the greater community immensely by strengthening community spirit, making partnerships and working together for the greater good. Not only will there be the obvious benefit of fresh, locallygrown fruit and vegetables reducing your carbon footprint, but there will also be hidden benefits like sharing knowledge,

PROPOSED: Radley Park could be the site for the Roimata Community Food Hub if the community rallies behind the idea.

learning where and how our food is grown, and therapy. Gardening is very therapeutic – it gives you a sense of achievement and belonging, making you feel worthwhile. Perhaps you could make some wonderful new friends while you get healthy consuming vitamins and minerals from the harvest. We have an amazing resource at our fingertips. Radley Park is a big piece of land which largely goes under-utilised. The gardens will be almost pollutant-free because there is no traffic going past. The first stage will include planting out fruit trees, which it is possible could happen in the next month. The city council and Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community Board are supporting this venture and will hopefully grant some funds. You could be a part of transforming and evolving the park into an even better public place – a comprehensive community food resource. So don’t be shy, get involved. The contact person is Michael Reynolds via The Roimata Community Food Hub on Facebook.

Stephen Wickham writes in response to Southern View’s front page article – Opposition to multi-unit housing development mounts (March 28). I can empathise with the residents who feel they will be most affected by Multay Developments Ltd’s building proposal of four two-storey units. In my experience, wellplanned or good development seldom attracts criticism, but poor or over-development does. And I believe this could be the case here as the area involved is a very long and narrow section. Two well-designed units complementing Studholme St would be far more desirable than what I understand has been proposed. But then again, I’m not a second-tier developer wanting to farm people for maximum profits.

Reverend Michael Kerr writes about the plan to repair Ferrymead’s Cob Cottage In the March 14 edition of Southern View, I was interested to read that Cob Cottage is to be repaired following the earthquakes. In the 1950s, I lived at Te Awa Kura Tce on St Andrews Hill with my late parents and sisters. Everyday I would pass the cottage on my way into Christchurch. Then, many years ago I obtained a painting by L Baire Fribery of the cottage, with the old Ferrymead Bridge and the Yacht Club building behind it. The framed painting hangs on my wall as a constant reminder of days of yore. Memories are precious and I was glad to read the cottage will be restored.

Build your next home with Artisan Homes Your local registered Master Builder Home building is as much about understanding the landscape and the client as it is the plan and the materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our small company has built a huge range of homes that are distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective. From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work spans all types of house building. Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a reputation for constructing high quality houses. An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is passionate about the quality results they produce. With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes have worked in all areas of residential construction. There are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our overall approach remains the same. While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted home building we also are renowned for getting the right result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our larger competitors we do have their networks and buying power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective results possible. At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for people who appreciate the work that goes into what will, ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

$600k bus shelter for Linwood „„ By Bridget Rutherford BUS STOPS next to Eastgate Shopping Centre will be upgraded after patrons complained they were not getting the same service as other areas. The city council is looking at installing $600,000 weatherproof bus shelters to replace the current ones on Buckleys Rd, along with a $500,000 signalised pedestrian crossing. It came after there were complaints last year that Northlands and Westfield Riccarton had received upgrades, while Eastgate was still waiting. Property owners also called for the stop to be moved away from Buckleys Rd, as they said patrons were littering, urinating and defecating on their properties. City council staff have looked at four options, in the shopping centre’s car park at the rear entrance, the Cranley St former library site, to upgrade the current Buckleys Rd shelter with a waiting lounge, or to upgrade it without the lounge. Their recommended option was to upgrade the current shelter as it would be cheaper, and the bus route would not need to be diverted.

UPGRADE: The bus stop on Buckleys Rd next to Eastgate will likely be upgraded with a weatherproof, larger shelter. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

But that would require consultation with neighbouring property owners, businesses and the mall. The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board decided on Monday to ask city council staff to further evaluate upgrading the bus shelter, so it could be included in the 2018 Long Term Plan. In July, the then HagleyFerrymead Community Board requested the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Com-

Views sought on mall car park exit „„ By Noah Graham THE PUBLIC is being asked to lodge submissions to the city council to make the Barrington shopping centre car park exit safer. The Spreydon Neighbourhood Network is calling for the community to make submissions to the city council in a hope they can get funding allocated from the Annual Plan to enforce a no rightturn out of the mall and a traffic island on Barrington St. Network secretary Sonya Hodder said after the group presented their deputation to the SpreydonCashmere Community Board last week, the only chance for the project to be funded was through the Annual Plan. The network has asked for changes to the mall’s exit to stop vehicles from turning right out of the Barrington shopping centre as it put pedestrians, cyclists and the elderly in danger, Mrs Hodder said. Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board chairwoman Karolin Potter said there was no alternative to fund the project other than through city council. Submissions close on April 21.

RECORD: Liliana Braun (front right) broke the 2000m steeplechase record at the South Island secondary schools athletics championships in Dunedin.

Cashmere student runs her way to steeplechase record „„ By Andrew King IN ONLY her fourth time competing in a steeplechase event, Liliana Braun broke the record at the South Island secondary schools athletics championships in Dunedin. The 15-year-old Cashmere High student ran the 2000m steeplechase in 7min 10.15sec, eclipsing the old record of 7min 31sec. “It is my first time competing in athletics properly over a full season and only

my fourth time ever running the steeplechase,” she said. Braun also took gold in the 3000m race. The steeplechase is an obstacle race in athletics, which derives its name from the steeplechase in horse racing. The record time is even more impressive when you consider there is no steeplechase track in Christchurch to practice on. “My coach just drags out some hurdles for me to jump over and that is how

we practice,” she said. With a background in cross-country, Braun said the transition to track running wasn’t too difficult. Her family travelled to Dunedin to watch her compete and she said they were very proud of her effort. She faces a difficult decision due to the fact she also plays tennis in the summer and said she will have to choose between the two. “I can’t make that decision right now, I like both too much,” she said.

Rotarians donate cricket gear to high school THE International Fellowship of Cricket Loving Rotarians has donated gear to the captains of the girls and boys teams at Cashmere

High School. Earlier this year, the IFCR had its ninth world cricket festival in Christchurch. At the conclusion of the festival, Norman Brown and Keith

Hopkins, members of the team from Great Britain, offered to donate the gear that their team used for the tournament to a Christchurch high school.

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or could it be mainly my muscles? The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints. PhysiotheraPist ietje van stolk suggests that a major part of the pain could be due to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis. “even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason for the pain may be the muscles around the joint,” she explains. The images show how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain are the red areas in the drawings), a knot in a muscle on the back of the shoulder blade can give a deep pain in the front of the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way near the groin can give an ache in the knee (especially at night in bed). ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old client with severe arthritis who walked with a stick, told her, “i will end up in a wheelchair, i cannot put any weight through my right leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she was walking with her stick but without the severe pain,” says ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors that made her muscles spasm but

the other was that older people move less and the flexed position the hip is in when we sit is particularly bad for the hip.” ietje is happy with the fact that although the client was 89 and could have been “given up on” or told to live with the pain, she made a difference to her health and wellbeing. The same lack of movement can be the reason for your knee pain or your shoulder pain and the same few treatments could make a huge difference for you. at Physical sense, hands-on techniques (massage and triggerpoint deactivation techniques) are used to release the muscles. The client also gets a home exercise program designed to mobilize and stretch the joint, strengthen the important core muscles and increase general strength and balance. They teach a movement sequence that stretches the joint in all directions whilst the client is able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for older or

less mobile clients. in many cases having the muscles released and being taught how to maintain it, is enough to stay on top of the problem. if severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some maintenance therapy may be necessary, but that is often more affordable and, for older patients, better tolerated than surgery. in very few treatments the client will know

if it is going to work for them or not, without financial commitment. Physical Sense Gym & Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham.

Chronic pain in one of your joints? Even if your joint is not in the best shape, a major part of the pain could be caused by the muscles surrounding the joint.

THE Christchurch branch StarJam is gearing up for another exciting concert taking place on Easter Saturday at e Piano. StarJam is an award winning non-profit national organisation that empowers youth with disabilities through music and performance workshops. One in five New Zealanders is living with a disability. at means approximately 150,000 young people with disabilities are facing considerable barriers in their lives. StarJam believes this is something that can be changed. rough music and performance workshops, StarJam reaches many of these young New Zealanders and provides opportunities for them to explore their talents, gain new skills and build confidence to try new things. For many, StarJam has been a life-transforming experience. Saturday’s concert features StarJam's Jammers performing with style and showcasing everything they CAN do alongside an orchestra made of extremely talented local and international musicians. “You will hear music from the sublime Mozart Concerto for 2 pianos, West Side Story and lots of bright toe tapping numbers all in Christchurch's beautiful new concert venue: e Piano,” said Jo Casey, Christchurch Coordinator. “All of this magical burst of happiness is being brought together by Mark Walton, New Zealand's musical troubadour who believes music breaks down all barriers.” e Joy of Music | Saturday 15th April | 5pm e Piano | 156 Armagh Street | Pre-sale tickets at Event nda.co.nz or phone 021 782 766 | Door-sales $10 Adults/Children $5 .
