Halswell Junction Rd congestion fix RELIEF IS in sight for commuters at the congested roundabout of Halswell Junction and Springs Rds. A traffic signal will be installed before the roundabout on Halswell Junction Rd to combat the 2km line of traffic which builds up daily. New Zealand Transport Agency journey manager Lee Wright said people have significant delays at the roundabout during the morning peak – from 6-10am. “Some Malcolm Lyall mornings it can take more than 12min for people to travel along Springs Rd and enter the roundabout because of the constant flow of traffic travelling north-west along Halswell Junction Rd,” Ms Wright said. She said there are often lines of traffic backed up for more than 2km while people wait for a safe gap to enter the roundabout. The new signal will relieve the delay by several minutes and improve safety during the morning rush. “It is frustrating for drivers and also risky as some motorists try to enter the roundabout when it is not safe to do so,” Ms Wright said. The signal will be installed 80m before the roundabout on the Halswell side of Halswell

Junction Rd. Two sensors will also be installed – one 200m before the new traffic signals, and another on Springs Rd, 50m before the roundabout. The signal will only be used to manage traffic during the morning peak. Ms Wright said the two

sensors will ensure traffic is not stopped unnecessarily and the majority of people travelling on Halswell Junction Rd will not notice any delays. Give way rules will still apply at the roundabout, even if cars have got a green light. “The green light will give drivers permission to approach

the roundabout, but they will still need to obey the road rules and give way to oncoming traffic once they are at the roundabout,” Ms Wright said. Prebbleton resident and Selwyn Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall said he was delighted that the intersection will be improved.

“I’m pleased for our community that the transport agency is pro-actively providing a solution to what has become a frustrating intersection on our local roading network. This change will make a real difference to commuters.” The project it set to cost around $150,000.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK A SOLUTION possibly to the chronic traffic congestion that the Halswell Junction Rd and Springs Rd roundabout causes. If you don’t get away to work early, getting through the roundabout and onto the Southern Motorway means a 15min or so backlog to Prebbleton. This has been happening for a long time now and will get worse as the motorway extension work kicks up another gear. So the powers that be will install a traffic signal (see page 1) at the roundabout to combat the 2km of traffic that backs up on weekdays. Once you get to the roundabout it’s a game of dodgems getting across and around into the motorway flow. That can be exciting, or fearful, depending on what kind of person you are behind the wheel. – Barry Clarke

Mega-facility work starts next year Denton Park site for $38m facility „„ By Julia Evans WORK ON the new $38 million mega-facility at Denton Park is scheduled to start late next year. The Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre will be sited at the park after months of debate and controversy. The facility is still in the planning stage and it will go into design at the end of this year. But south-west residents shouldn’t expect to be using the facility until the middle of 2020. Although at this stage, these are only indicative dates. But sports clubs say they will fight to stop it going ahead. They have been protesting the mega-facility’s construction at Denton Park said will fight to the bitter end. A petition, started by Hornby resident Mark Peters, has received 1500 signatures – including nine from the original

Denton family. Mr Peters said it was started to save the “green heart” of the suburb. “Denton Park is the Hagley Park of Hornby. We really feel passionately about that open space. It’s been there for generations,” he said. He said he is trying to get the

voice of the community out there. Denton Park was approved as the mega-facility site by the city council at its meeting last week, which Mr Peters labelled a “sad day for democracy” in Hornby. During the consultation process, 43 per cent of people were in favour of Kyle Park, 38 per

cent for Denton Park and 14 per cent liked Warren Park. All city councillors, except Yani Johanson, voted in favour of Denton Park. City councillor Vicki Buck said there were a lot of less vocal residents in the community who supported Denton Park too. “There are a lot of other people in the south west of Christchurch that are desperate for a facility,” Cr Buck said. Those in favour included Hornby High School’s board of trustees, Canterbury Track Cycling and Community Development Network Trust. Cr Buck said not one park received a majority vote. “The interesting thing about these parks is that the majority of people are opposed to them.” She said she could not sit by and watch $10 million of ratepayer money be “buried in the ground” if Kyle Park was approved. “I am not in favour of us making a decision that takes away from the people of Hornby who for so many years have not had a pool or great facilities in their area at all,” Cr Buck said.

Supporting women to succeed

Sheila Hailstone, founder of the Christchurch Women’s Toastmasters Club, which meets weekly at St Paul’s Anglican Church in Papanui, writes about the importance of inspiring confidence in women When Annette King finally bowed out of the Labour Party after 33 years, she said it was not good enough that women only make up 31 per cent of the MPs and that all political parties need to commit to making Parliament truly a House of Representatives. It is not only in this area of leadership that women are under represented. Women make up more than 60 per cent of university graduates with a post graduate or honours degrees. However, they can only be found in 20 per cent of senior management positions and only 17 per cent of private sector boards. It’s not that women of any age lack the skills or obvious intelligence to put themselves forward for leadership positions, but they may need support and confidence to take up the challenge.

Love

Christchurch Women’s Toastmasters, which meets weekly in Harewood Rd, has a phrase ‘supporting women to succeed’. In this club, women can gain both the speaking skills and leadership skills to take on any challenge. The group has attracted women from many walks of life and has a truly international feel as women of many different cultures find their speaking voice. The women in this club have used their skills to train business people in public speaking and

the funds gained have been used to help pay the training fees for those members on a tight budget. Members have credited the club with helping them gain work, confidence, management positions and there is even one elderly member who believed it helped them recover from a stroke. For women, it is important to not allow the noise of other’s opinions to drown out their own voice. Women should follow their hearts, and if they want to gain confidence to do so they can and should be supported by other women. The Christchurch Women’s Toastmasters is a great place to start. Then maybe in my lifetime we will see women take up 50 per cent of the seats in Parliament and 50 per cent of the places on private sector and Governmental boards.

Carolyn Moffat – I’m appalled to see how this mall treats its long term tenants. The mall owners obviously have no respect for their tenants, and only want to fill up the mall with chain stores, so that it becomes like every other mall around town. Might as well shop elsewhere now at a bigger mall, as this mall is fast becoming irrelevant. Paper Plus will be sorely missed, just as the florist was when it closed down.

  FLAME FILES

Preventing stove top fires „„ By Mark Thomas – specialist fire investigator

Chris Mugford – I hope the new tenants enjoy the privilege of paying for the new mall upgrades, especially as they watch the customer car park empty out as the customers look for good service and uniqueness elsewhere.

Pamela Neil – About time. It is very boring and quite expensive. I used to live in a lovely house at 124 Aikmans Rd when I went to Elmwood Normal School – now part of the mall car park.

Josh Hurrell – Would take a pretty big revamp to ever make that place relevant.

Anthony McBride – This is why I don’t shop at malls.

Tracey Tyler – Very sad to see Paper Plus leaving. It’s a great store with lovely staff.

Liz Ball – The mall owners are greedy as Paper Plus is such a nice shop and I will be saddened to see it go.

Keely Raines – Yet another mall to make it unaffordable for the hard working locally owned family business and give the space to another corporate, disgusting.

Anne Marie Smulders – I like Paper Plus and always go there when I visit my family in Merivale. Such a shame it has to go.

I SEEM to spend some time every week complaining about the number of kitchen fires we’re going to. Not that we are moaning about having to go to them, but we know the inconvenience to anyone who has such a fire. People who suffer them regularly end up being treated for smoke inhalation after trying to control what happened. Last week was quite a busy one in the kitchen fire department, and a couple of the call-outs triggered messages we all should be aware of. The first was at Breezes Rd, Aranui, on Thursday and was a perfect example of the danger of leaving something combustible on a stove top. In this case, a plastic coffee grinder was cooked up because the element it was sitting on was turned on by mistake. I’ve seen bread boards, toasters and tea towels all cause a fire because an element was mistakenly activated. If you persist in storing these things on the stove top, it’s

almost inevitable that eventually the obvious will happen. They’re not storage areas. If you’re tempted to use them as such, then quite simply, don’t. The second fire was at Ferry Rd on Friday where a pot of burning oil was carried through

the house in an effort to get it outside. Inevitably it was dropped as the flames increased. A fire on the stove top should be handled right there. If it can’t, get out and shut the door. Don’t spread the fire.

Sunday 3rd Saturday September th Fundraiser nets $5000 for Sallies 12 August Meet Megan on

STUDENTS AT Hornby High School have been giving to their community by fundraising for the Salvation Army, raising more than $5000 in cash and donating a more than equal value of canned food. The project is lead by the programme’s peer mentors, made up of senior students who organised a mufti-day. All students wearing mufti donated a can of food and a gold coin. The students chose to support the Salvation Army as they recognised the significant contribution the charity made to their community. Consequently, a very proud group of young people presented the cheque to a Salvation Army representative this week. “Giving to your community is a key component of the Stars programme delivered at the school by the Graeme Dingle Foundation,’’ says Stars coordinator Lucretia Treadgold. The programme is designed to make the transition into high school a more positive experience for year 9 students

while also providing leadership and citizenship development opportunities for senior students. It helps them build confi-

increased social and academic outcomes. “It’s all about growing great Kiwi kids here in Hornby”, Mrs Treadgold said.

News Superstar Adams comes to Chch „„ By Gordon Findlater HUNDREDS OF aspiring basketball players flocked to Cowles Stadium and the Celebration Stadium to see NBA star Steven Adams. The Oklahoma City Thunder centre was joined by teammate Andre Roberson and the team’s coach Billy Donovan. Other than getting the chance to interact with the NBA star, one of the highlights of the day was being introduced to MVP Russell Westbrook who talked via facetime (video cellphone call) with Roberson. Tickets for the first ever Steven Adams Camp held in Christchurch sold out in under an hour. The camp was the first of three run around the country by Sports Pathways. The objective of the camps is to provide an opportunity for youth players to train with him and expert coaches. While in Christchurch, Adams also visited the Nga Hau E Wha National Marae. Before heading back to the United States for the upcoming NBA season, Adams will host an invitational golf tournament in Auckland. •Local sport, pages 10 and 13

Syme stars as CBHS win title „„ By Andrew King CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High’s newest rugby star Rico Syme stole the show on Saturday, pulling off three big plays in the 18-10 win over Timaru Boys’ High in the UC Championship final. Syme slotted into first-five after playing the semi-final at fullback and, within the first half hour, repaid the coaches faith with two chip kicks to set up tries in the left and right-hand corners of Straven Rd. He said “luck of the bounce” and great support play was the reason the kicks came off. The 12-3 half-time lead was extended with another Syme penalty in the 42nd-minute before Timaru hit back with a converted try of their own from a lineout drive making the score 15-10 with 20min to play. Syme lined up a penalty in the 62nd-minute from about 45m on the angle, and the confident left boot did not fail. “I was pretty nervous when we decided to go for goal but I knew that if I hit it well, then it would have the legs,” he said.

would have to defend hard as they were capable of coming back. CBHS held on to win their second consecutive title and 10th in 17 years since the start of the competition in 2001. Hundreds of supporters poured onto the field to celebrate with their team. “It’s so satisfying that we won, didn’t think I would be here at the start of the season especially when I was playing for the seventh XV,” Syme said.

Now they look ahead to the clash with Southland Boys’ High in the South Island final. “My goal is to focus on the Southland final and then if we win that, focus on top four,” Syme said. In the other finals, St Bede’s ran in eight tries against Marlborough Boys’ to record a 50-13 win in the bowl final, while St Thomas’ beat Waimea Combined 26-20 in the plate final.

St Thomas win plate final against Waimea in spite of yellow cards „„ By Andrew King ST THOMAS won the plate final in the UC Championship in a hard fought 26-20 win over Waimea Combined after being reduced to 13 players for a short time. Played at their Middlepark Rd home in front of a great school crowd, St Thomas ran in four tries, three of which were converted by the boot of Cormack Tarrant. Two yellow cards, one before and one after half-time, saw St Thomas reduced to 13 men. Waimea took advantage scoring two quick tries. When back to their full 15, the home team was too much for Waimea and a knock-on in the final play of the game gave St Thomas their second plate title.

Hundreds of supporters then poured onto the field to celebrate with their team.

Forwards coach Johnny Leo’o said it was an emotional time for some of the year 13 players as it was their last game in the red and blue. “They are a great bunch of guys and have been great to work with this year. It was the best way we could have finished the season,” he said. “The school, students and supporters are behind the boys all the way and that has been great. “This win is for those boys, the school and the supporters.” For now, most of the team have a few weeks to savour the victory, before switching codes for the upcoming New Zealand rugby league national secondary schools tournament from September 4-8.

“stress away ” It takes the

Life presents a lot of curly questions! “What’s going to happen when I get older still? How can I feel safe and secure without being a burden?” Liz found that seeing truly was believing in putting to rest anxieties about retirement villages. “What I did know was that I did not want to live on my own anymore. It was my decision.’’ Liz has always lived with lots of people around. From boarding school at age 10, to raising four children, Liz’s life was always busy. It still is. She enjoys the company of other residents, and the luxury of choosing from a menu for a freshly-prepared midday meal which Liz eats surrounded by friends. The meal provides an important daily social outing and there is a lovely buzz and vibrancy about the place. “We talk about life in general, but we stay away from politics,” Liz chuckles. While Liz points out that she is still fit for her age, her decision to choose serviced apartment living was based on wondering what the future might bring. Her serviced apartment – which she has set up exactly how she likes it – allows Liz the balance of maintaining her independence, whilst having the security of extra help if she needs it. “It makes me feel years younger to know help is there if I need it. It takes the stress away.”

Riccarton High School Trio’s game wins competition Kayley Johnson, Kaile Qian and Georgia Walsh have won the 2017 Future Transport Competition organised by the NZ Transport Agency. For their efforts, they win $500 each, $500 shared between the supervising teachers, Ms Jermy and Ms Varcoe, and $2000 for the school. The girls created a board game, called Starpath, which won the playable game section for Years 7 to 10. It was created in their Contextual Class, 9Rd, in their

Maths and Science classes. The basis of the game is the Starpath Plus finish which illuminates footpaths in the dark. The girls investigated opportunities and challenges in transforming transport and came up with the idea of the Starpath – a safe way to complete a journey. The game is played with two to six players who roll a dice to advance but have to overcome challenges on the way, depending on what appears on the cards they

end up with. For their entry, they had to send videos and paper explanations to Wellington for judging but before they completed their task, they got the rest of the class, and then their parents, to road test their game. See their finished product on the NZTA website – http://education. nzta.govt.nz/competition National competition winners Kaile Qian, Georgia Walsh and Kayley Johnson.

Pride in production Months of work and a great deal of tension and expectation saw four evening performances and a matinee of The Lion King staged with expertise and enjoyment by audiences, the cast and crew and the staff involved.

When was the last time you had your dentures checked? Call us today for your FREE check today.

Creating a Better Denture Experience

At Better Denture, the denture clinic situated in Brynley Street, Hornby, the aim is to take the hassle out of getting new teeth, says experienced dental technician and owner Chris Castle. “We focus on making it easier for people coming here to have dentures made or maintained with our relaxed environment and friendly approach.” Chris understands that people can be a bit nervous about coming into a dental clinic, but he makes sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable at Better Denture by breaking down those barriers and putting them at ease. The process of having new dentures made and fitted usually takes four appointments, and Chris explains the process step by step so patients understand what’s being done, further complete after care is provided at no additional cost.

True

“Every set of dentures is made to onsite by hand, using higher grade materials as standard, allowing us the ability to customise every aspect of the process. We also aim to cater toward the upkeep of existing dentures, with same day repairs and relines on offer, as well as being available on Saturdays, allowing us to work around even the busiest schedules,” he says. “Our aim at Better Denture is to create the best possible denture experience for you, the customer, whether it be through the products we custom create, the service we provide or the manner in which strive to achieve both of those goals.” Anyone needing new dentures is invited to contact Better Denture, phone 349 5050, for a free consultation. The clinic is spacious and welcoming, and patients are invited to bring someone with them for support at any appointment if they wish.
