RSA claims council wasted $25,000 „„ By Gabrielle Stuart CONTROVERSIAL $25,000 glass graffiti protection panels around the New Brighton War Memorial may be removed, sparking calls they have been a waste of money. The panels were installed around the memorial last month, but were criticised by the New Brighton RSA and by people in the Kim Money community who said they were “horribly ugly”. The Coastal-Burwood Community Board is now considering taking them down and using lighting, security cameras and more open landscaping to discourage vandalism instead. Board chairwoman Kim Money has met with New Brighton RSA representatives to discuss the idea. Ms Money said the options

included removing the low walls in the area to open it to the street, making it less attractive to vandals. But Ms Money said there was no funding currently set aside for the work, and having it approved could take months. New Brighton RSA executive manager Garry House said that was not good enough.

He said the city council had wasted money on the panels without properly consulting the community. “If you’ve blown the money on doing something stupid, that’s no excuse. You’ve just got to find the money somewhere else,” he said. The memorial was vandalised in 2015, and he said the idea

of protective panels had been briefly mentioned then, but there had been no discussion of it since. “I understand the council was trying to do the right thing by protecting the cenotaph, so I applaud them for that, but they went about it very badly,” he said. He said the association would be happy to see the panels left up

as a temporary measure, but only for a few months. But Ms Money said the plan was likely to take some time to approve, as it would need to be put to both city council staff and Development Christchurch Ltd, the city council subsidiary responsible for revitalising the New Brighton foreshore.

THAT WAS one amazing effort from Ryan Pearce at the world distance waka ama championships (see page 4) The South New Brighton School teacher took out a silver medal, fantastic considering he had spinal surgery several years ago and has only been paddling for 12 months before making the New Zealand team. Our article today looks at the fundraising effort put in to get him there, largely from the Ferrymead Rotary Club. Club member Barbara Crooks writes about how it all happened and why the club did it. Community spirit at its very best. Well done to the rotary club, and of course Ryan. The drums are beating to remove the graffiti protection panels around the New Brighton War memorial (see page 1). No surprises there – they look awful. - Barry Clarke

News Richmond garden expands RICHMOND’S GREEN thumbs have been given a space to grow their community garden. The Richmond Community Garden Group has been given a two year lease to develop just under half a hectare of red zone property in front of Avebury House on the corner of Evelyn Couzins Ave and River Rd. Land Information New Zealand leased the group the land for $1 after it had twice outgrown its previous space. It is the biggest piece of land LINZ has ever leased to a community group. The group’s founding member Hayley Guglietta said, since 2015, it has had a small garden beside Avebury Park. “But we had too many people volunteering – we just ran out of space and things to do,” she said. After approaching Regenerate Christchurch and being told to go to LINZ, the group had to prove they were “providing a space for the community” before being given the lease. But with nearby schools, pre-schools and families already using the garden, it was not a hard sell. So now the group is busy planning its new space, which will be

PUBLIC consultation on New Brighton’s new $8 million beachside playground closed on Sunday, with more than 150 people commenting on the plans. Work on upgrading the whale pool playground is due to begin next month, following a monthlong feedback process on the concept design, run by Development Christchurch Ltd. More than 150 people commented on the Select Evolution design. Seating, shading, grassed areas, and accessibility were key themes of many of those. DCL chief executive Rob Hall said the feedback would allow it to build the best playground possible. “The beachside playground will be a real drawcard for Christchurch residents and visitors alike, contributing strongly to the revitalisation of New Brighton.” The new playground will be built to the south of the existing whale pool play area, which will enable a larger play area and better connectivity to the business centre. It is on track to open this summer.

And Mrs Guglietta said it’s proud to have achieved all of this with very little funding. “We’ve done all of this with a small grant from the city council’s strengthening communities fund and a small win from Z Energy’s Good in the Hood. But aside from that, it’s all been donations and pure man-power,” she said. Currently 15 volunteers work in the garden but members of the public are more than welcome to join. Part of the project will include converting the Avebury House garden into a medicinal herb and cut flower area. “Programmes at Avebury House will be able to use the garden, go out there and cut flowers … but we’re looking for someone who knows about cut flower gardens at the moment,” Mrs Guglietta said. It is also hosting a wicker weaving session as part of the development on August 19 at Avebury House.

News Rotary helps teacher succeed on water to his intensive rehabilitation efforts, he was walking with the help of a stick on his wedding day. Two years later, the remnant of the vein forced another operation, six weeks in hospital, and back to work on physio in a wheelchair. The next year, he tackled the 2.8km harbour crossing swim in Auckland, dragging himself across almost entirely with his arms. He has done four more distance swims since. But he believes he trained harder for waka than his swims because he didn’t want to let his mates down. He’s also quick to point out that, while one of the seven paddlers did not get a start in Tahiti, the performance was very much a team effort. Pearce sees “paddling in some capacity” as very much a part of his immediate sporting future. He believes he’s best suited to longer distances, which opens the way for him to bring his swimming, paddling and perhaps other endurance talents together.

Ferrymead Rotarians had a strong inkling they were on to a good thing when Ryan Pearce approached them for support to get to the waka ama (outrigger canoeing) world championships. Club member Barbara Crooks writes about how it worked out THE 34-year-old South Brighton School teacher was part of a para-six which paddled to a silver medal at the World Distance Waka Ama Championships in Tahiti a couple of weeks ago. Pearce, who has used a brace on his right leg since spinal surgery eight years ago, had been paddling for just 12 months before making the New Zealand team. To get to Tahiti he – and each of his fellow paddlers –had to raise $4000 in three months since the team was named in March. His personal and professional attributes impressed Ferrymead Rotary members so much they

North New Brighton resident Dan O’Sullivan, who has been campaigning to save the trail, said that was not good enough. He said he would now look at organising a letter or petition from residents to keep it. “Of course there’s a way around it, it’s just they don’t want to,” he said. He believed keeping the trail would make the school more secure, as residents walking there on weekends or after hours could keep an eye out for vandalism or problems happening at the school.

NO DECISION has yet been made whether a dairy on Union St, South New Brighton, will be able to expand. Owner Christine Chen wants to expand the business by building on a section next to the dairy. Neighbours Brendon Moir and Patricia Claypoole objected to the plan because they believe the expansion does not comply with the city council’s resource consent requirements. A commissioner heard arguments for and against the expansion in May, and has yet to release a decision. •In previous reports on the issue, Pegasus Post has omitted to report Mr Moir and Ms Claypoole’s objection was because

Michelle Fuentes-Whittaker

Brighton’s social conscience Social entrepreneur Michelle FuentesWhittaker’s latest venture is The Good Shop in Carnaby Lane, New Brighton. Sarla Donovan talked to her about the cafe, shop and hub for community education and workshops What’s the idea behind The Good Shop? To make living greener easier and more accessible. We tend to get overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, or feel like any small change won’t make a difference. We aim to shift this through having the shop, building a community of support and also education and workshops. What motivated you to set this up? It grew out of a combination of things. I’ve been involved in the social enterprise scene for a couple of years and when we had the big Kaikoura/Hurunui earthquake in November, I wanted to help the vulnerable small businesses. So I set up Alpine Pacific in a Box – a Christmas gift box full of artisan products made in these regions. I’ve always been a greenie so when I realised that all the artisan products were also naturally ethical and environmentally-friendly, I thought to extend the support to both the makers and the customer through a not-for-profit social enterprise. Is it a challenge to run an enterprise like this and make a living? Short answer is yes. We are only in the start-up phase and it takes a while to get the cash flow going. So we are mainly volunteers at this stage but are very committed to the initial pilot to see if it is viable going forward. We’ve got a lot of support from the local community but it also

needs to translate into financial sustainability. We do need some funding to help us through the start-up phase. Are you juggling family as well? We are all parents. Another string to the venture is to create the type of workplace you’ve always wanted that is flexible around family. So there are four of us that work part time to cover the Tuesday to Saturday week and the collective directorship. Though I’m finding that I’m working everyday being the business developer, communications and marketing, social media, managing director, ops manager, finance manager and admin! But for now, I’m loving it and once the systems are set up and we have more volunteers on board, it will be more sensible. Why did you decide to open in New Brighton? Three of us are locals. We love living here and are putting our hands up to contribute to the vibrant community. We have strong networks across greater Brighton and the east, which is vital to starting up a not-forprofit venture. We also have the support from Development

Christchurch Ltd with some funding to cover the basics for the three-month pilot. Are you originally from Christchurch? Born and bred Cantabrian. I’ve lived elsewhere and travelled a lot but found myself returning home to start a family. As much as the earthquakes were horrible, I’ve seen the silver lining in the openness to new ideas and the strengthened communities. From doing earthquake recovery work with CERA to creating the river of flowers for the February 22, 2011, earthquake anniversary, Places of Tranquillity in Manchester St, being involved in the beginning of the All Right? well-being campaign and developing the Well-being Game. Have you always been a socially aware kind of person? I’ve always been involved in volunteering and community from an early age. That continued through university and my first job as a community centre manager in Wellington. My career hasn’t been a linear typical journey but there is a very clear thread and commitment to social change and community well-being. The Good Shop is

I pulled this together to bring my various initiatives, interests and fabulous collaborators under a clear vision and practice – enjoyable, innovative experiences that just happen to be good for you and good for the planet. There seems to be a real push back on plastic bags at the moment. Why do you think that is? Waste is a huge issue and plastic bags are a tangible item that we all use and it’s easy to see what damage they’re doing to our oceans and environment. Plastic has only really been around in everyday household products for the last 40 to 50 years. Yet there has only recently been the realisation of the prolific impact. We don’t really know how long plastic takes to break down either. It’s commonly stated as 100 years, yet we haven’t reached that time yet so it could be 1000 years. The silly thing is that we don’t need them. Our parents and grandparents never needed them either. Use cloth bags – it’s that simple. Putting a levy on plastic bags or making

them thicker so they are more easily reusable isn’t going to solve the problem either. It’s an initial step, though, and it raises awareness of the problem. Where do you like to hang out when you have some down time? The beach and the forest are such amazing assets on this side of the city and are extra enjoyable with kids and dogs. I mostly hang out with family and friends in winter, but with this project, I am spending my downtime working. Do you have a bucket list? What’s at the top right now? I haven’t got a bucket list as such. I’ve always tried to live my life doing what I love as I go. Though getting The Good Shop successful and making a living for those involved is at the top of my life list right now. Where do you see yourself in five years time? Everything flourishing – www. flourish.org.nz How are you enjoying these frosty winter days? I’m more of a spring and autumn person but I love the frosty days if it means sunshine all day. With the very cold mornings, though, I’m not enjoying the condensation on the windows and running the heat pump a lot more. It’s important to be warm and dry, though, to reduce the winter ills. Do you have any go-to recipes at this time of year? Usually soups like curried kumura, and my son’s favourite leek and potato, which I make nice and thick. But with having a cafe in our shop, I’m in heaven. I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 20 years and to have a whole menu I can eat from is so incredibly exciting. So I’m enjoying Pod Cafe black bean burgers or empanadas with gorgeous winter salads. I can’t feel bad about eating them a lot either as they’re so healthy and eating meat-free is one of the top things we can do for climate change.

Museum puts 51 years of Pegasus Post on display COPIES OF the Pegasus Post dating back to 1966 have been bound into a book by the New Brighton Museum. The newspapers were stored in boxes at the back of the museum, but it was decided the public would enjoy them. The first box full was taken to the city council bindery at Linwood and the museum committee was thrilled with the result. One paper had a whole page on the pancake races which were an annual event on Shrove Tuesday. Teams of keen competitors would race up Seaview Rd, tossing their pancakes on the way. The museum has some handsome trophies in its cabinet from the races. Museum secretary Peggy Butterfield said not many years in the collection are complete until after 2002 when the museum opened and dedicated collecting of

the Pegasus Post began. The book is on display at the museum, along with many other treasures. One such item is Patsy and Warner Mauger’s recently written memoirs – a beautiful book stacked with memories. The museum is open every day from 1-3pm so get along and browse the memorabilia. However, Monday is movie day, so it is not possible to browse that day. The museum is reliant on volunteers to open each day and is presently a bit thin on helpers. If you can spare an afternoon a week to be on the desk, meet and greet visitors and show them around, it would be greatly appreciated. “It is so important now more than ever that we preserve our local history,” said Mrs Butterfield. Phone the museum on 388 4286 or pop in to have a look.

Enrolling now for 2018 Rebuild Update from the Principal Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofaatu. Namaste and Kumusta. Greetings to our Community. I am very pleased to inform our community of two important decisions regarding our rebuild process. The school’s master-planning designers have been announced. This is the firm Architectus and we are very positive about this. www.architectus.co.nz Architectus has completed many school rebuilds and other major projects, including in Christchurch the Knowledge Centre (the Central Library) and the Bus Exchange. The lead person for our rebuild at Architectus is Carsten Auer. Carsten leads the Christchurch Architectus team. He is a Redcliffs resident and is committed to the concepts of community and inclusion which came through strongly in Architectus's submission. In Term 2, 2019 Linwood College will shift off-site for the duration of our rebuild to what will then be the former Avonside Girls’ High site. The site will be available as AGHS (and Shirley BHS) will be on their new site, formerly QE2 Park. This is a very good step for us, for while it has its own processes to work through, there are three major positives: 1. LC students and staff will not experience the difficult period of rebuild disruption. The time and energy that otherwise would have gone to ensuring learning was not affected can now be used more positively. 2.The LC demolition and building processes start with an unoccupied site and so can operate in a single stage. This means that a year comes off the rebuild timeline so the timeline we are looking at now is 18 months to two years. 3.With this considerable timesaving and there being no need for relocatables to shift us around in, there is a financial saving of approximately $1 million. This money does not leave the budget so is used to enhance what we will be getting. The Ministry of Education will ensure that LC has all the support that we need during our temporary relocation, including a transport plan for our students to the new site. We will be exploring bussing options to get our

students there. The MoE appoints a relocation manager and employs specialist movers skilled at shifting a school, everything from basketballs to hydrochloric acid. The AGHS site is safe. The buildings are mainly relocatable classrooms. AGHS has operated very successfully in them with a full academic and social curriculum. About half of the relocatables were brought in postearthquake so they are modern and warm. In fact, they are of better quality than our present LC classrooms. The site is close to us. I have timed my last two drives there: 3 min 50 sec and 4 min 10 sec, just 2.2 kilometres from the LC front gate to the AGHS front gate. While the rebuild of Linwood College is well overdue, we are also aware that the demolition of the old school will bring mixed feelings for some. And this makes sense as a school’s physical fabric contains many memories and key moments in people’s lives. How we close and honour this chapter in our school’s history, while we open another, is important to us and already is being given due attention. Nga mihi nui to our community as the positive activity of the year continues. I am always keen to meet people if any member of the community wishes to talk to me about anything. My door is open. Richard Edmundson Tumuaki-Principal

Major Production 2017 ‘Wolfstock’ The moon is high and all is quiet. Excitement is rising. The night is still. This night, 2nd August will be the opening night of Linwood College’s 2017 major production ‘Wolfstock’. This is a maverick musical written by Mary McMahan with music by Donald Woodward. A ‘Grease’ ‘Teenwolf’ mash-up with eccentric characters, great one-liners and the odd motor bike - this fun story along with the compulsory dancing and singing has all the makings for a fun, family-friendly show. The new Performing Arts learning team of Sam Boyce da Cruz and Ben Russell are bringing life back to the Linwood College productions after a hiatus. The cast of this year’s production celebrates everything that is great about being part of a Year 7 - 13 school with cast and musicians involved spanning across all age groups, collaborating and working together to present this show.

The show will have a three night run from 1 - 3 August. Tickets will be available at the College’s Payment Office from Term 3. We look forward to seeing you there.

Community Connections

Students from Linwood North Primary School visited during Linwood College’s Taster Afternoon this month. They were treated to a scene from the upcoming Linwood College musical WOLFSTOCK as well as engaging science experiments.

Heathcote Valley School students investigate science during their lesson with Helen Mora, Head of the Science Department. Science, mathematics and debating lessons taught at the College to local primary school students are strengthening ties with the community.

Regional Pool Championship Contenders Kane Tahu, Justin Howland, Shayden McKenzie and Ben Broomhall recently made it into the regional ‘Pool for Schools’ championships following trials earlier this month at the Cashmere Working Men’s Club.

ACHIEVERS

Flooring apprentice takes out top industry accolade A WAINONI apprentice has taken out the top title at the annual Flooring Apprentice of the Year Awards held in Christchurch. The event, held by the Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation earlier this month in conjunction with the National Flooring Association, honours excellence and dedication towards training. Nicholas Poultney from Wainoni was awarded both the stage three and the supreme apprentice of the year awards – the

overall highest achiever of all winners. The award winners were selected based on the achievement and skills they display at courses provided by the Allied Trades Institute throughout the year. “Nicholas was well prepared for his course and showed a great ability to problem solve and think things through. He consistently produced a high standard of work,” said Allied Trades Institute principal tutor Jeff Henry. “All of this year’s winners are

There has never been a better time to consider a career in the trades, he said. “New Zealand is in the midst of a skills shortage and the construction and building sector desperately needs more recruits. This pressure is set to continue so anyone considering a career in the trades can be confident they are making an excellent choice.” Aranui Creation Station Wednesday, 10am-noon This initiative from Otautahi Creative Spaces encourages people to use their imagination and encourage their crafty side.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or could it be mainly my muscles?

T

he 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 or both hips. 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. Alternatively, a back muscle could also be the cause, as shown in the image. 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

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

her health and wellbeing. 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 hip, strengthen the important core muscles and increase general strength and balance. They

teach a movement sequence that stretches the hip 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 and 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

Incorporating

experiences, interactions and play at Marshlands Nest

Roslyn Eason, fully trained and experienced early childhood teacher, owns and operates Marshlands Nest Early Learning Centre which is an intimate centre with a maximum of 25 children. Roslyn says “Our goal is to create a setting where self-esteem, love, learning and respect for others is prominent and where every child leaves each day feeling secure and loved in their special environment. At Marshlands Nest they create a most positive environment for children so they can learn through all experiences and interactions but most importantly through play.

This have a mixed licence which means children of different ages play and interact with each other. It allows siblings to be together and gives solo children a chance to be part of a larger family. It also means children do not need to transition between rooms so can stay with the same teachers and children. Marshlands Nest does recognize the need for age specific learning and a portion of each day is spent in ‘nest times” learning with others of the same age. The team at Marshland Nest would love to have you as part of their family, please feel free to drop in or give them a call.

Combining elegant and beautifully proportioned spaces with ease of maintenance and a superbly convenient location, this exceptional townhouse is the perfect answer for those seeking stressfree contemporary living. Classic brick construction ensures timeless appeal, lovingly updated renovation to incorporate modern comforts including partial double glazing and a chic new kitchen. Situated in a perennially popular neighbourhood, it is zoned for top schools and is just a short stroll from the supermarket, with several cafés and restaurants within walking distance. Stone features add texture to the openplan living, providing separation between dining and lounge areas. A double-sided gas fire (above which two televisions are cleverly positioned) enhances the ambience of the space, while large sliders to the courtyard garden bathe the room in light and provide delightful leafy views. The chic kitchen combines the practicality of generous storage and bench space with contemporary extras such as under-bench lights at the breakfast bar, instant boiling water and softclose drawers. The spacious master upstairs has its own private balcony and en-suite, and two more double bedrooms share a family bathroom. A double garage, separate laundry, guest powder room and great storage ensure this property ticks all the

boxes. Outside, a brick-walled courtyard garden offers an appealing and easy-care space for relaxing and entertaining. Classic design and a leafy, established setting ensures that this development is often admired. Warm, comfortable and appealing, this lovely property offers so many options. Zoned for Fendalton School, Cobham Intermediate, Burnside High, Boys’ High and Girls’ High (Jan 2018), you can be assured that your investment will be underpinned by a blue-chip location. Don’t miss this unique opportunity! Open Homes Saturday and Sunday 2:30 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. See you at the open homes or to arrange a private viewing, give me a call today Deb Harvey of Harcourts Gold Papanui (Licensed Agent REAA 2008) on 352 6166 or mobile 027 220 6565
