RISING STAR: After making the switch from middle distance running, Ari Graham has dominated in her first year of triathlon. PHOTO: AT PHOTO ​

„„ By Gordon Findlater A SUCCESSFUL background in middle distance running looks to have set Southshore triathlete Ari Graham on a path to glory. Graham, 18, won the recent Sea2Sky Challenge in Sumner, the latest of many achievements. She competed in last year’s national track and field championships in Dunedin, winning both the under-18 800m and 1500m titles. She is also a champion cross-country runner and has previously represented New Zea-

land at secondary school level. After trying her hand at a couple of school triathlons she made the bold move to turn her full attention to triathlon and it’s now paying dividends. Graham has taken a gap year following her final year at St Andrew’s College and is currently working part-time and training full-time with the Canterbury Triathlon Academy. Over the summer, she competed in the National Junior Series, which is contested between the top under-19-year-olds in the

country over five events. Graham not only won the series, she took out all five events. “I was really shocked with how well it went in my first year of triathlon. Every time I competed I wasn’t really expecting to win. I was just excited to compete and learn from racing,” said Graham. Graham has always been a strong swimmer and runner. She has been hard at work on her cycling with coach Axel Reiser to develop her technique and bunch-riding tactics this year. •Turn to page 5

A NEW gateway into New Brighton is on the drawing board. Plans for a rebuilt Pages Rd bridge show Hawke St being used as the main entrance point instead of Seaview Rd. The bridge suffered damage in the Canterbury earthquakes and is to be rebuilt in 2021/22 at an estimated cost of $13 million. At present, the bridge directs traffic directly into Seaview Rd with Hawke St to the left and Owles Tce to the right. Burwood Ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone told the Pegasus Post he had seen plans

drawn up by Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team showing the bridge tilting away from its current position. Traffic heading towards New Brighton would be directed into Hawke St towards the beach, rather than onto Seaview Rd and New Brighton Mall. Mr Livingstone cautioned that the plans, which are dated February 2014, are likely to change. “Since that time, Development Christchurch and Regenerate Christchurch have come into being. We don’t know what the use of red zone land in that area will be.’’ •Turn to page 3

GATEWAY: The Pages Rd bridge is destined for a $13 million rebuild.

FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK A NEW entrance into New Brighton would make sense. THe devastation caused by the earthquakes have forced a rethink of how the suburb fits within wider Christchurch. Key projects such as the hot salt water pools offer the prospect of an exciting future. Many people are working positively to try and expedite the transformation of Brighton’s dilapidated shopping area. THe Pages Rd bridge is an important gateway into the area and it is to be hoped that the public are fully informed and engaged in decision making on its future. Also this week, the recent Rangatahi Eastside Youth Ball brought together young people from across the east of the city to celebrate and network together. It’s heartening to see these young people so engaged in the future of our city. – Sarla Donovan

$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-

mittee write a report looking at options for a covered interchange for Linwood. The report said there was insufficient passenger demand to justify a waiting lounge.

It said in 2005, the city council identified Eastgate as a key public transport interchange site. In 2008, a review by Abley Transportation showed it to be a crucial location.

•From page 1 He said the plans had not been made public as they necessitated the purchase of red zone land, the future of which had yet to be decided. Head of the New Brighton Business and Landowners Association Paul Lonsdale said any realignment could be linked to the city council New Brighton Centre Master Plan which proposes a new north-south road running through the existing mall from Oram Ave to Hawke St. He said the current street layout was confusing, as traffic drove along Seaview Rd towards the shopping area with an expectation they could park easily. However, the street then became one-way before turning right onto Beresford St. “It’s a bit of a maze. We do need to rethink how traffic moves in this part of New Brighton.” Mr Lonsdale said he didn’t know of any plans to shift the existing retail area, though he had heard some retailers would like the mall traffic to go two-way in Seaview Rd. Any move to realign the bridge would need require “major consultation,” he said.

Church buys supermarket site

„„ By Sarla Donovan THE FORMER Pages Rd New World supermarket is to be turned into office space. The building and car park on the corner of Pages Rd and Breezes Rd has been largely empty since Foodstuffs vacated the building in 2006. The Celebration Property Trust, part of the Wainoni-based Celebration Church, reached settlement on the property last Tuesday and planned to repair and refit the building before leasing it to tenants. Government departments, community groups and sporting organisations have already expressed interest in the site. Church special Kim Money projects manager, Corey Watkinson said they would be interested to see who else “comes out of the woodwork” over the coming months. He estimated the cost of structural repairs and fit-out to be around $2 million. Engineers will be on-site this week and they hoped to have the 2500 sq m building ready for lease by the end of the year. He said the trust was very happy with the purchase. “It’s good to see something produc-

INVESTMENT: The Celebration Property Trust has bought the former New World supermarket building (left) in Pages Rd and plans to turn it into office space. The trust also owns the former Donaghy’s factory which it is turning into an indoor sports centre (artist’s impression below).

tive come from the site. Purely from an eastside residents [point of view] it’s good to see it move forward into something productive. For us it’s a commercial investment spurred by the fact it’s

been sitting there without any activity. We’re concerned that as this part of the city is rebuilt, we want that site to have a positive use.” Coastal-Burwood Community Board chairwoman Kim Money

was positive about the purchase. “Any enhancement for our community is greatly welcomed. I am very aware of the fact that the local churches have been very proactive in our two wards by rolling up their sleeves and helping to create positive change where needed.” The trust is also developing a 12,000 sq m indoor sports complex in the former Donaghy’s factory in Pages Rd. Building consent will be lodged in June for the $8 million facility. It will feature two timberfloored courts for basketball and netball, four multi-use netted courts for cricket, soccer and other sports, and a 200m indoor athletics track. The complex is expected to be finished in late 2018.

Bid to clean up anti-social behaviour in reserve „„ By Sarla Donovan ANTISOCIAL behaviour in Doris Lusk Reserve needs to be sorted out “once and for all.” The LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board is looking at options, which include setting up a wet-house Alexandra or a drop-in centre Davids nearby. Board member Alexandra Davids said there had been ongoing issues with homeless people us-

ing the reserve, as well as people abusing alcohol and drugs. “We are looking at setting up a wet-house where alcohol-dependent people can get help and be off the street. Alternatively, a drop in centre could be looked at.” Miss Davids said the board didn’t have a fixed plan as yet, but was planning to meet with the Te Whare Roimata Trust and local police to take a more coordinated approach. “We were looking at a liquor ban, that’s one thing that could

help, but we don’t want to move the issue to another area.” Collective for the Homeless coordinator Brenda Lowe-Johnson, who is also a Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board member, felt a liquor ban would just shift the problem elsewhere. She said a recent hui organised by the collective gave strong support for a drop-in centre. “They want a place where they can come and do laundry, shower and drop in for coffee.” Te Whare Roimata Trust co-

ordinator Jenny Smith said there had been a drop-in centre in the central city but it was demolished after the earthquakes. “We know that’s something they [the homeless] really miss. A place they can go and be a whanau together – that’s what the park provides at the moment.” The trust, which provides grassroots help to residents in the eastern inner-city, was pushing for positive solutions to the problem.

Triathlete’s path to glory •From page 1 The weeks are busy with four pool, three run and three cycle sessions. To keep it competitive, she spends most of her time training with a lot of the top boys at the academy. “It’s about putting her into an environment where she’s being pushed,” said Reiser. He believes that Graham shows all the signs for them to be hopeful about her development. However, like all young athletes, there are a lot of factors in the future which will determine what she could go on to achieve. “If you look at her times and compare that to previous Olympic champions, then she is now faster than them at this stage,” said Reiser. Graham currently competes over the sprint distance, which consists of a 750m swim, 20km bike and 5km run, half the length of the sport’s Olympic distance. She’s been able to get a good gauge of where she wants to get to. Since dedicating her time to triathlon, she has had the opportunity to work alongside New Zealand’s top female triathlete Andrea Hewitt. They swim together under the guidance of Roly Crichton, who trains New Zealand’s most successful Paralympian Sophie Pascoe. “I used to train with Roly at QE II when I was younger,” said Graham. “I’ve always kept in touch with him and, when I finished school, I was able to train with him again. “Andrea is really east to talk to and it’s amazing being able to train with someone who’s so accomplished.” CORRECTION Last week the Pegasus Post printed a photo of a powhiri at Waitakiri School where Ollie McCosh was incorrectly identified as the head boy. He is in fact on the student council. The head boy and head girl titles for the school are selected at the end of each year. We apologise for the error.

Anita Darnell Our People Providing quality time for families Anita Darnell has run the Children and Families Ministry of the Parklands Baptist Community Church for three years. Sarla Donovan talks to her about date nights, screen time and why she loves living in postearthquake Parklands. What brought you to Christchurch Anita? We were living in Hamilton and my husband got a promotion so we moved down here and we’ve been here for the last 13 years. I was born in Lincoln, my parents actually farmed out in Lincoln when I was a baby and then they moved up to Blenheim and we grew up there. Marlborough Girls is part of my upbringing. I love the community I live in, it’s one of the better parts of Christchurch, because of the community feeling. Especially after the earthquakes, people pulled together, they cared about their neighbours and there was lots of activity. I like the schools; it’s a good community to bring kids up in, there’s lots of things readily available for them. We’re close to forests, close to playgrounds, got a great local library and we’re not far from the beach. We rented in Bexley when we first moved here and then bought in Parklands so we’ve been here about 12 years now. Can you tell me a bit about your family? I met my husband Mike at church in Hamilton, we met through friends. He’s an engineer who works for Opus. We’ve got two boys James and Mason, both at Parklands School. They keep me busy with soccer, swimming, after-school sports. James is doing trumpet lessons and we’re looking at that for Mason. They keep us busy that’s for sure.

HELPING HAND: Anita Darnell loves her job working with children and families at the Parklands Baptist Community Church. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Family time is important to you – do you have strict rules at home around screen time? We try to limit screen time. There are days when we don’t have screens because we’re busy doing other things and days when they probably have a little bit more than they should. Days we wish they didn’t have them at all. I think you’ve got to be really careful around the screen and what games your children are playing because of all the things that they can unknowingly do with social media and even games like Roblox and Minecraft. It’s so easy for them to get trapped or tricked so we’re really conscious about talking to our kids about the computer only being used within our sights where we can monitor what they’re doing and we’ve got some safety net stuff on our computer too. What’s a typical day like running the Children and Families Ministry at the church? I work part-time, 10 hours a week. That does get stretched a

bit sometimes. A typical Tuesday would be music groups in the morning for caregivers, parents and pre-schoolers, followed by staff meetings and planning for the next activities. We run a dads’ out-group which meets once a month. It’s a place where dads can come, hang out with their kids, have a bacon butty and a cup of coffee and just meet other dads in the community and not feel so isolated. I think some dads are a bit nervous going out in public either because they’ll get stared at because they’re with their children – which is a sad commentary on society – or some other reason. It’s just a friendly place where they can feel relaxed and the kids can have fun. Have you always done this type of work? I’ve always had a bent towards working with families; I’m a trained primary school teacher. I’ve worked as a pre-school teacher and also worked at a church up in Hamilton as their children and families person.

I only worked as a relieving primary school teacher. It’s a lot of work, even as a pre-school teacher. I enjoyed it, but after I became a mum myself, I wanted to spend time with my own children and as they got older I was keen to be involved in the community. What do you love about your job? I love the people. I love doing things for and with people. That’s why I do it – not for the money. Above all, I want people to feel that we care about them, that they’re important, and that there’s someone there for them if they need help or a listening ear. I want to provide activities that don’t cost the earth, opportunities for parents to make memories with their children. One of the big things that came out in surveys after the earthquakes was that parents wanted things to do in the area that didn’t cost the earth, which they could go to as a family and would be fun to do together, so we’re trying to meet that need. We run a Christ-

mas in the Park in December, which is a big event we put on for the community with local talent as well as our church band and singers. Last year we had miniJeeps and big balls, barbecues, all that stuff. It’s about coming out and having a fun night and celebrating Christmas together. What’s one of the biggest challenges facing parents today? Busyness. Probably one of the biggest challenges is trying to spend quality time with your children. A lot of families in our community have both parents working, and for them, it’s having that quality time with their children over the weekend. That’s part of the reason we provide things for families in our area, so they can come along and it’s not an expensive outing for them as a family. We recently ran a movie night for different age groups on the same night and the same place so parents could come out and have a date night but their children were being looked after at the same time. A lot of couples really appreciated that they could have a date night and it wasn’t costing them a fortune. What’s on your bucket list? I’m pretty content. That sounds terrible doesn’t it. I’d love to take the kids to Disney World, that would be pretty cool. For me personally, I’m pretty happy with how things are. If I was to die tomorrow, I don’t have anything I wish I’d done. I’m pretty happy with my life.

News Fitness trail planned for Burwood „„ By Sarla Donovan A PLANNED public fitness trail at Burwood Park will have six fitness machines or stations. The city council has identified Burwood Park south as an ideal site for the fitness trail due to its size, the number of sporting groups that use the park facilities, and the easy access and visibility for the public. In a set up that will be similar to that found in Hagley Park, the stations will include push-up bars, parallel and chinup bars, an air walker and a pull down exerciser. The Dallington Community Cottage Trust originally approached the city council about creating a fitness trail. The planned location in Burwood Park south is next to Cresswell Ave, either side of the existing playground and basketball court. The project is a partnership between Dallington Community Cottage Trust, which is donating the equipment, and the city council which has agreed to pay for the costs of installation. The project is estimated to cost $60,000 overall. The city council has prepared landscape plans and is now seeking feedback from the local community prior to starting construction towards the end of the year. The public has until April 21 to present submissions.

Forging friendships at youth ball PURPLE BALLOONS festooned the New Brighton Club recently as 160 young people came together for the inaugural Eastside Rangatahi Youth Ball.

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. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz.

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. At Physical Sense we have good results with releasing the muscles (with hands on techniques) and increasing your strength and flexibility. Within a few treatments you will know if this is what you need.

THE JOY OF MUSIC StarJam Fundraiser

Cooked Breakfasts Check out our extensive breakfast menu from Continental to Cooked

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 .
