„„ By Andrew King ANOTHER WHEELIE bin has been set alight in Burnside fuelling further fears for residents’ safety. For the past three months bins on the street and on driveways, near houses, have been deliberately set on fire in the Burnside, Bryndwr and Ilam areas. The latest arson was on Memorial Ave, near the intersection of Greers Rd, at about 3.30am on Saturday. Police are following up the incident. Last Saturday, six wheelie bins were set alight with Detective Sergeant Mike Freeman urging the perpetrator to talk to them before anyone is seriously hurt. “Police are treating the incidents as arson and believe they are linked to previous wheelie bin fires in the area,” Detective Sergeant Freeman said. The previous four attacks were in May but there had been a period of at least a month where there had been no fires. Residents in the area have also been told by police to keep their wheelie bins out of sight.

THERE’S A great appeal starting at your local Countdown supermarket next month. And if you look at our front page photo today you will understand why. The annual Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal starts early next month and every dollar that goes into it helps children like eightyear-old Jacob Matua. The tremendous smile Jacob had for the camera belies the perilous situation he – and many others like him – are in. Each year, Countdown supermarkets run an appeal to help provide equipment for patients using Christchurch Hospital’s paediatric and neo-natal services. And the good news is: Jacob is doing well. “He’s making great progress,” his aunt says. – Barry Clarke

Dad’s punt wins Crusader visit

In Brief

„„ By Julia Evans MICHAEL STIRLING is officially the coolest parent. At least in the eyes of the pupils from St Joseph’s School in Papanui who received a visit from Crusaders players. Mr Stirling won a special visit from players David Havili, Pete Samu and Seta Tamanivalu as part of the Placemakers Punt for Prizes competition. During round eight of the Super Rugby competition, he correctly picked all seven of the games and was put into a final draw – which he won. “It was a bit of sharp shooting,” he said. So he nominated his daughter Taylor’s school to receive the visit. “The younger ones appreciate the players, they look up to them as heroes,” Mr Stirling said. The Crusaders hosted a mini Elmwood coaching session as well as dishing out a few autographs and a selfie or two. Which more than paid off. “I’ve been told she’s pretty good at tackling now,” Mr Stirling said. Placemakers Canterbury marketing manager James Munro said the company is thrilled to be able to offer such unique and memorable prizes to rugby fans.

GRAFFITI IN ST ALBANS St Albans has gone from having the highest number of graffiti incidents in the city to the fourth highest, according to the latest city council data. Earlier in the year, it featured alongside the central city as the worst-hit suburb. However, during May in St Albans, there were 56 incidents, down from more than 100 in March and 70 in April. The highest number of graffiti incidents during May were recorded in the central city, Linwood and Sydenham.

QE II UPGRADE UNDER WAY Work has begun on upgrading QE II Dr from Grimseys to Innes Rds. The site clearance work involves tree felling and vegetation removal to allow for two new lanes to be built. Traffic will be stopped for a maximum of three minutes at a time when the big trees come down. The construction of the two new lanes will begin in September.

“To see the excitement on the kids’ faces at St Joseph’s was really special and I know they will be talking about the visit to their mates for a very long time,” Mr Munro said. •To enter head to www. puntforprizes.co.nz.

IMAGINE: These artworks by Kerry Turner, Thomas Logopati, Damien Christie, Kingston Heitia-Brett and Amethyst Tauanuu are among the pieces on display at the Papanui Library.

Creative young montage „„ By Julia Evans YOUNG PEOPLE were encouraged to “speak up” through art which is now on display in Papanui. As part of Te Ora Hou Otauthai’s Polyphony project, 10 art works are being featured on the windows of the Papanui Library for the next year.

Youth from Papanui High School, Te Kaupapa Whakaora Alternative Education, Casebrook Intermediate and Te Ora Hou Otautahi submitted their pieces based on the theme: “Our voices count, count our voices”. Papanui-Innes Community Board deputy chairwoman Emma Norrish said she is

amazed at the quality of the artworks. “So impressed with how these young people have put themselves and their stories out there,” Ms Norrish said. The programme has been run for the past three years and has been supported by the PapanuiInnes and formerly ShirleyPapanui community boards.

National Bear & Doll School sculpture blessed in ceremony Show OCCASION: The St Andrew’s Preparatory School kapa haka group perform at the ceremony to bless the school’s new sculpture.

„„ By Julia Evans ST ANDREW’S College celebrated its centenary in March. And now the school has forever marked the occasion with the installation of a new centennial sculpture, The Cross He Never Knew, created by internationally-renowned

artist, Angus Muir. It was gifted to St Andrew’s by the Muir family – as Angus and his two brothers, William and Andrew are old collegians. Muir is now the creative director of the collaborative studio Angus Muir Design, based in Auckland but has worked on projects both locally and internationally.

His work is largely created using light and mirror. The sculpture stands in pride of place outside the college’s iconic Strowan House. It was blessed by the school’s chaplain Paul Morrow, alongside a performance from the school’s kapa haka group last week. The Cross He Never Knew is

a phrase from the school song and is intended, like the work itself, to provoke reflection. It references the Scottish Saltire flag – long held as emblematic of the college and its heritage. But it also strikes a contemporary salute to the past 100 years while signalling the college’s bright future.

Countdown to supermarket Countdown‘s upcoming appeal will help provide equipment for patients using Christchurch Hospital’s paediatric and neo-natal services. Sarla Donovan visited cancer sufferer, eightyear-old Jacob Matua, who benefits from the equipment JACOB MATUA has visited this place many times. He’s in the Children’s Haematology and Oncology Centre in the Riverside building at Christchurch Hospital, where’s he’s hooked up to an infusion pump dispensing the medicine he needs. It’ll be 10pm before this day’s treatment is over. After the eight-year-old started getting “headaches and tummy pain, neck pain, arm pain,” at the end of last year, a cancer diagnosis followed, along with nearly three months in hospital, getting treatment. Now he comes in for shorter stays – four days this time – and is crossing his fingers that he

attend his school, Burnside Primary, at the moment. He couldn’t even eat his birthday

chocolate cake in May: “Because sometimes I don’t eat,” he said. Charge nurse manager Chrissy

Bond lightens the mood: “I wish I could say that!” The nurses play cards with him, including memory and skip bo. Lucy Stephenson, who is supervising today, says he’s quite the card shark. “I win every time,” Jacob says with a grin. His aunt Ula Faamoe sits with him, too, giving his mum – who has four other children including twin three-year-old’s – a break. She says he’s well at the moment: “The best I’ve seen him since starting the chemotherapy. He’s making great progress.” Beside his bed, a tall pump stand holds all kinds of medicines and beeping equipment. The $5000 stand is one of four in the centre, purchased with money from the Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal in 2013. Mrs Bond said it holds five to six pumps and keeps the medicines stable, as well as allowing nurses to easily read information on screens attached to the pumps. “DHBs find equipment like this hard to fund, because we can ‘make do’ with inferior (devices). It isn’t essential, but it just makes everybody’s life easier,” she said.

Last year’s appeal raised $123,270 for Christchurch Hospital’s paediatric wards and neo-natal unit. Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal chairwoman Ruth Krippner says most kiwi kids will visit hospital at some stage in their childhood. She said Countdown is proud to play a part in helping provide these hospitals with the equipment needed to treat illness and injury. “Whether it’s a one off visit for a minor injury or a lengthy stay for a serious illness, most New Zealand children will have a brush with a children’s hospital ward at some point​– just like this family,” Ms Krippner said. “Thanks to the generosity of

Belfast principal makes teary-eyed departure LAST SPEECH: Peter Simpson addressing the Belfast School assembly for the last time. ​

„„ By Julia Evans RETIRING AFTER 23 years as principal of Belfast School could be summed up in one sentence says Peter Simpson: “It was hard.” “Leaving the kids and families that have been part of my life for so long, it was difficult from that perspective,” he said. But now he’s taking on a new challenge and passing some of the knowledge he’s picked up during his time at Belfast to new principals as a leadership advisor. “It’s a chance to give something back,” he said. Although it’ll never replace being around school community. He said he had to go back to visit shortly after leaving because he missed the kids so much. On his “very emotional” last day, the school planted a Mr Simpson tree and sang To Sir, with Love. That brought a tear to my eye, he said. It was a bittersweet moment. “But I couldn’t have done any of it without the people around

me. It’s not a job that you can do on your own,” Mr Simpson said. It was that sense of community that grew in Belfast over the 23 years that he said was the highlight. “Probably one of the best things is the acceptance by the wider community that Belfast is a good school,” he said. When Mr Simpson started, the school was 80 per cent New Zealand European, he said.

But when he left, there were more than 15 different ethnic groups. “I think that just represents New Zealand as a whole,” he said. “The school motto is ‘care, share, learn, grow’ and seeing that acted out through the kids and tolerance of difference was great. They accept the kids as they were and wrapped their arms around them like a family.” He said the fact that new classes and school blocks had to be built, alongside a change in school culture and growing rolls, proved his time at the school was a success. “I absolutely loved my time at Belfast,” Mr Simpson said. On July 24, the school will hold its first mihi whakatau to welcome new principal Sue Elley. Mrs Elley joined the school after being the assistant principal at Hornby High School.

Your Local Views Stop the sale of state houses Nae Nae Higgs writes about state house sales I am a state house tenant, weighing in on the debate about state house sales. Yes, I hear the groans – here we go, another state-awarded wanna-have-it-all about to give us all a lecture on what we are doing wrong as a society – but hear me out. Looking at this idea of sellingoff state houses, I have been working on this for a while now: going to every meeting, trying to stand up scream out – “I am a state tenant, I am your most vulnerable.” I have done this over and over, but while I do this, the Government has dangled more carrots to make it look better for us. Is it really better for us? With our houses falling down

around us, we would try all we could to engage with those responsible. Our cries fell on deaf ears, with replies of: ‘‘We cannot afford to fix your home.” “If we streamline and put HNZ with the Ministry of Social Development we may be able to work more efficiently,” and now: “We shall sell some of these houses on to another provider and see if that works.” All we have now is a broken system, a greedy Government and huge profits to be made and lost, with us as the product. To quieten our voices there is a new carrot, in the form of the provider who will build 150 houses for the state. So let’s just say this new provider buys the 2500 houses. Seems like they can do whatever they would like with them, so long as

they build one for one state house. They can demolish one house, put up six and make profit off five, with only one of them being state-owned. We were not told anything more, except what a good job they have done. A good job at scaring their people, giving misinformation, leaving us to rot while they decide what will give them the best profit, and worse, becoming more of a nanny state deciding what is best for us. A lot of us waited months for the most basic of human needs and also living with what one could only describe as a harassment that is wrapped up in an idea we can’t look after ourselves. If we look hard at the idea of selling these houses we will realise it is a no-brainer, they must be kept in our hands, we need more not less. We need the Government to fix their systems not sell half of their assets. We as HNZ tenants are not trying to be greedy, we are not stating we want to keep our houses because they are ours. They are not, they are the country’s houses, they are the safe places for all New Zealanders. I want this sale stopped.

TRAFFIC: Red light runners at this Cranford and Berwick St intersection were targeted in a police sting. ​

Readers respond to the article about red light runners at the intersection of Cranford and Berwick St Diane Dick – I travel around Christchurch daily and witness this all the time. In some cases they need to put up more right turning green arrows to make a lot more intersections safer. However, the rude people who keep coming when the lights have changed make it even more unsafe for those turning. Compulsory stops are another hairraising area. Only two or three cars actually stop properly, the rest slow down and treat them like a give way. Good on you for making a stand on this. It’s so obvious why our road toll is going up. Shane Fisher – Montreal St and Bealey Ave. People for-

ever running red lights on both roads. I’ve seen a lot of close calls. Bring back the red light cameras. It’ll cost thousands to put in place but those costs will be retained after only about six months use. Christopher Ford – Hmmm, tickets really work. I remember they were giving out tickets 49 years back and they still need to do it so it doesn’t work just take the bloody driving rights away. That will get a better result. William Hutson – It is because the light signals are not geared towards left turn priority. The timings need to be changed and adjusted. People only really run reds because they literally won’t be able to turn right legally.

Readers respond to an article in the Nor’West News regarding a neighbour whose quickthinking and smart phone helped police nab a burglary suspect Charlene McConchie – This is what the police and dog handlers must have been searching for the other week. The two guys were outside mine then ducked through the park as a patrol car came around the corner. Nic Davies – Well done to that lovely lady neighbour if she was one of mine I’d give her a huge bunch of flowers and a gift voucher. Hope they get hard on those brainless scumbags. Dothy Mitchell – Good work neighbour. Well done.

Chairman of the Papanui Heritage Group Murray Williams writes about disappearing signs in the domain The genesis of Papanui was the native bush that once straggled across a block of land that covered parts of Rural Sections 3, 5 and 25, an aggregated area of 200 acres bounded by Langdons and Vagues Rds although the bush probably accounted for less than half of this. The native forest was cut out by 1857 and in the early 1880s six and a half acres of this land, with a frontage on Sawyers Arms Rd, was developed as a domain, Papanui’s first public park. In 1960, historian Jim Gardner was keen to spark some interest in the early days of Papanui. At this time he was chairman of the Canterbury Regional committee of the National Historic Places Trust (now Heritage New Zealand). In association with the city council he organised a sign on the Sawyers Arms Rd frontage of the Papanui Domain. The noticeboard featured a map of the area and a brief narrative of the milling of the bush in the 1850s. Analysis of a contemporary

photograph suggests that the sign was of a significant size, probably at least 2m in height. This sign has been removed. It is not known when or by whom, but it had possibly been vandalised. In 1997, Jim Gardner assisted by local historian Mollie Chalklen, convinced the city council and the Historic Places Trust to organise a replacement. The result was the Papanui Bush interpretation panel. The new structure was smaller but sturdier. In a letter to Mollie Chalklen from the parks development

LEARN TO SWIM

The new Swimsmart Membership is here! The new Swimsmart membership offers a new approach to learning to swim. Swimsmart members will get free, unlimited access to all Christchurch City Council pools outside of regular lesson times. This provides kids with extra opportunities to practise their swimming skills! Customers will now be able to enrol for a membership that offers up to 48 weeks of lessons per year. The new membership also allows customers to pay on a more regular basis via direct debit instead of paying for a full term up front.

Grading of children’s swimming skills occurs on a regular basis, so they can move up a level as soon as they’re ready. If there’s no space available at that level at a suitable time, your child will go on a waitlist and get some advanced instruction at their current level. Book now to secure your child’s spot! Call (03) 377 7690, email swimsmart@ ccc.govt.nz or visit the Swimsmart offices at Jellie Park, Graham Condon or Pioneer to book. For more information check out www.ccc.govt.nz/swimsmart

WHAT’S IN THE BOX: This wooden time capsule was only recently discovered under the St Albans Community Centre.

Search for clues to origin of wooden time capsule THE SMALL time capsule found under the St Albans Community Centre is actually a small wooden box which is likely to be water damaged. It is about 30cm long, 15cm high and 11.5cm deep.

learn

The screws holding it together have rusted so it has been exposed to moisture at some stage. The St Albans Residents’ Association is looking for anyone related to the residents who founded the

centre in 1867. The time capsule was buried on July 31, 1920, by Mayor Henry Thacker. But the existence of the 97-year-old capsule, now with the city council, wasn’t known until it was found.

Pre-school children celebrate Matariki through production „„ By Julia Evans GLITTER, COLOURED paper, crayons and paint were amongst the tools pre-schoolers from the Bishopdale YMCA were armed with when creating a Matariki play. Last Thursday, the children, aged from six months to six years old, put on a production for parents and staff to celebrated the Maori New Year.

Matariki was introduced to the children through the legend of Tamarereti and his fishing adventure.

Whanau and families of the children made a crowd of more than 50 people watching on.

News Water the only way to read poem „„ By Julia Evans SAMANTHA Jory-Smart’s literary work is now part of the city’s history. But her poem, A Promise, can only be seen when it’s wet. The Burnside High School student was asked to write the poem to feature on one of the central city laneways. The Mollett St block of the South Frame was recently opened by Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner. It features a pounamu built into the pavement. But it is more importantly the home to the country’s first raining poetry installation. Samantha’s poem has been printed onto the pavement in invisible chemical spray that only reveals itself when wet. She said the poem came from a mix of wanting to include Maori culture, a tale about the mataī tree, and create a sense of Christchurch’s regrowth. “It’s amazing to contribute to Christchurch and be a part of the rebuild,” Samantha said. Mrs Wagner helped Samantha unveil the poem by pouring water from a watering can over it. She said it was exciting Mollett

St was the country’s first raining poetry installation. “For the first time, I suddenly get

a feeling of what the city is going to look like,” Mrs Wagner said. When completed in 2019, the

South Frame’s pavements and laneways will span seven blocks in the central city.

The Promise The Mataī tree grows astride Kahikatea, Tōtara watching over. Black pine and white pine clustered, unfold together, peel into the sky as does Mollett Street: soul encased in heartwood sapwood stripped away. Ruia taitea kia tū ko taikākā anake. The wood is forged with channels for the rain, its branches arch to embrace us all for a thousand years a promise.

Further $45k signed off for Plunket rooms However, Mayor Lianne Dalziel is sceptical whether repairing the old building is in the city council’s best interests. She said it was a challenge to make the decision as the city council was not provided with a detailed report. Ms Dalziel said the repairs would only get the building to 67 per cent of the new building standard. “It will still be old, still be unimproved and still be poorly insulated. It has old services and contains significant inherent maintenance issues,” she said. The building will be home to a social worker, who is being funded by the Papanui-Innes

„„ By Julia Evans A FURTHER $45,000 has been allocated for repairs to the Redwood Plunket rooms. Originally budgeted at $30,000, the quote was then upped to $75,000 for the rooms to be repaired for community use. Papanui city councillor Mike Davidson said it was a “big win” for Mike the Northcote and Davidson Redwood area. “This is not much money in the grand scheme of what we’re going to achieve in the community,” Cr Davidson said.

Community Board. Cr Davidson said the Plunket rooms are in an ideal location next to the Redwood Library. They will also be used as a community gathering space. A research report from city council staff has shown that a lot of young people feel unsafe in local parks around Northcote and Redwood. “(The area) lacks neighbourhood space for people to come together and the younger generations feel unsafe in the parks due to drugs and gang involvement in the area,” he said. The city council approved the additional funding in the 201718 Annual Plan. MUSIC: St Margaret’s College chamber choir has made it to the national finals of the Big Sing. Only 24 choirs from around the country have been selected. The finale takes place in Wellington from August 24 to 26.

Fire Service’s new look „„ By Mark Thomas - specialist fire investigator THE NEW Zealand Fire Service disappeared last Saturday. It ceased to exist. Fire and Emergency New Zealand began life in its place.  It’s what we’ll be called into the future.  What’s the reason? Until now, there have effectively been two fire services in the country.  Those that covered urban settlements, towns and cities, and those that tackled mainly wildfire in more rural settings.  To a certain extent, the boundaries were blurred and we generally co-operated as much as we could.  The new Fire and Emergency New Zealand Act combines us into a single organisation, still with distinct urban and rural sides but working side by side.  It’s got to be better.

As far as most New Zealanders go, there won’t be any change whatsoever except the fire trucks that respond to your emergency might have different stickers on the side. For those of us in the new organisation, there’s some learning of new legislation but essentially it’s business as usual. Christchurch had a quiet week as the change occurred. Ten people got themselves trapped in a lift at a city bar in the early hours last Saturday morning. It took about half an hour to free them. And a fire truck was used to hold up a severed power pole in Barrington St after a car crash on Sunday evening which kept live wires off the street and power going for Spreydon homes. Finally, fire crews assisted ambulances at about 10 incidents where people suffered seizures and died suddenly. That’s about double a normal week.

Connetics Shield-holders miss national competition

NOR’WEST NEWS

SPORTS

„„ By Andrew King BURNSIDE HIGH is ruing poor early season form which has cost them a spot in the nationals. But coach David Williams is not looking to blame outside forces, saying it was gutting but entirely their own fault. Four teams were selected from the Connetics first XI football competition to compete at the Boys Lotto Premier Football Tournament in Napier from September 4-8. “A draw against Shirley and letting Cashmere back into the game, which also ended up being a draw, didn’t help. If either of those games had of been a win instead of a draw, then we would be in Napier,” he said. St Andrew’s College, St Thomas, Lincoln High and Cashmere High have all made the cut for the 32-team national tournament. The teams were picked during round eight when the top four included the selected teams. Burnside were fifth in round eight, but have since moved to third after wins against Middleton Grange and Lincoln High. In their match against Lincoln, Burnside also won the Connetics Shield for the

first time. However, they were denied a wildcard entry into nationals, with Nelson’s Waimea College and Wellington College snapping up the last two spots. “We will now focus on trying to win the Rex Dawkins tournament in Palmerston North,” Williams said. That tournament runs at the same time as nationals. Williams said with two games and a bye left in the Connetics competition, the goal is to finish strong and hold on to the Connetics Shield. The competition now takes a three-week break and will resume on July 26 for three rounds before the finals. Burnside will not want to let go of the shield when they

face Christ’s at 5.45pm at the Christchurch Football Centre, where all league games are being played this year. Christchurch Boys’ High will take on Lincoln at 4pm, St Bede’s will play Shirley at 5.45pm, St Andrew’s will try to stay top of the table when they face St Thomas at 7.30pm and Papanui will resume their season against Riccarton at 7.30pm.

Top schoolgirl footballers headed on Singapore tour „„ By Amelia Christensen-Rose ST ANDREW’S College’s Lily Bray and Britneylee Nicholson, and St Margaret’s Emma Clarke have been named in the New Zealand secondary school girls’ football team to travel to Singapore at the end of September. They will play two games against Singapore women’s national A and two games against the women’s club champions at Jalan Besar Stadium. “It’s a good opportunity to form a really good team and culture,” Nicholson, 17, said. Clarke, 17, and Bray, 16, were at school when they received the email letting them know they had made the team. “I let out a small scream and

I couldn’t stop smiling. I have really been wanting to get into this team for a while now,” Bray said. Said Nicholson: “When I first got the email late at night I went around the house yelling and waking everyone up, I was so excited. I just felt all the hard work I had put in had paid off.” All three girls agree that the best part of being selected for the team is the great opportunity to play with other talented girls in a different country. The girls will be in Singapore from the September 27 to October 6. Both Bray and Clarke have also been picked to play for New Zealand at the under-19 Oceania Women’s Championship in Auckland this month. •More sport, page 19

New management for local business

A change of scenery is how Allan Cleghorn describes his new position as Manager of Bridgestone Hornby. “I want to grow our business through consistently top rate service to all customers,” says Allan. While known for supplying and fitting tyres and mag wheels, the team at Bridgestone Hornby also service and repair all makes and models of cars, vans, 4WDs, and fleet vehicles. Their fully functional workshop with the latest diagnostic scanning equipment allows them to carry out regular vehicle servicing from changing oil and filters, to replacing antifreeze, topping-up brake fluid, aligning wheels and serious vehicle repairs. They also do Warrant of Fitness inspections for just $40, a little cheaper than elsewhere. Bridgestone Hornby is close to the Hub Hornby.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

New treatment for fungal nails Feet First, the long-established podiatry clinic in Upper Riccarton, now has a much more efficient and effective means of dealing with the problem of fungal nails, thanks to a new machine they recently obtained from Britain, where it was designed and trialled. Clearanail is a procedure where the Podiatrists use a machine to make tiny holes in the nail without affecting the nail bed – a completely pain-free procedure that then allows the topical application of antifungal solution to directly reach the problem area. Fungal nails may cause the toenail to thicken, which consequently can make shoes feel uncomfortable. Anyone who believes they have a fungal infection of the nails is invited to make an appointment for a consultation with Feet First so one of the qualified Podiatrists can assess if that is the case, and if so, will recommend the Clearanail procedure. This involves the initial treatment, and three follow-up appointments at monthly intervals to check progress. “Fungal nail infections won’t disappear immediately,” clinic director Charlotte Russell says, “so people need to commit to the process, which can take up to four months as the nail grows.” She says now is an ideal time to start fungal nail treatment with Clearanail, so nails will be looking healthy again when the warm, sandal-wearing weather arrives. Feet First has an introductory offer on Clearanail until the end of July. Call them on 348-7910 for details.

The Clearanail machine and related products.

In addition to offering this highly effective treatment, Feet First has another unique feature – the Shoe Room. Here, clients can browse through a wide selection of ‘fashionable, functional footwear’ for men and women that not only provides support and comfort, but also looks modern and attractive. The four registered and experienced Feet First Podiatrists offer the full range of podiatry services for all ages and all conditions, with customised treatment provided for every client. They also offer a range of quality foot treatment products, including the German brand Gehwol. The clinic at 37 Main South Road is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm, with late nights on Monday and Thursday to 7pm by appointment. The Shoe Room is open Monday to Friday

Above: Clinic director Charlotte Russell displays one of the modern boot styles available in the Shoe Room. Below: The Feet First reception area.

9am-4pm. There is on-site parking available. Feet First also runs several satellite clinics. These are at the Marshland Family Health Centre, Marshland Road on Mondays, the Redcliffs Clinic, Augusta Street, on Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning, the Waltham Medical Centre, Waltham Road on Wednesday afternoon, and at Darfield Pharmacy on Friday.
