„„ By Sophie Cornish FOR THE third time since opening, thieves have stolen from a garden for disabled children and their families in Rawhiti Domain. The SmileDial Different Type of Perfect Sensory Garden had three citrus trees stolen, around August 25, in a premeditated attack in which shovels were used to uproot the trees. SmileDial charity led by CEO and founder Kelly Dugan, works with families who have children with an ongoing medical condition and/or disability. Several trees in the garden are planted by parents who have lost a child. “They’re not just trees, a lot of the trees have been planted by families whose children have passed,” he said. Several signs at the park means that those visiting are aware of what the garden is and who it’s for, says Mr Dugan. “They know who they’re taking from,” he said. Mr Dugan is now forced to look into installing security cameras, however, getting the money may require fundraising. •Turn to page 3

Inside

A GREAT piece this week on North Beach Surf Life Saving Club stalwart Pat Goosey. He was the patron of the club and a life member. He was a loyal, hard-working member and a North Beach clubbie through and through. Several months before Pat died after a brief illness, he attended his final club function. He got a standing ovation when he was wheeled into a function as the club celebrated 100 years of beach patrols. Pat met his late wife Lois when she joined the club and their four children all played an active role in beach patrols and competition. Long-time journalist Ian Stuart, who now lives in Auckland, but still has North Beach blood in his veins has written us a fitting tribute to Pat which we run on pages 4-5 today. Thanks Ian. – Barry Clarke

News Tiny hut returned to school A HANDOVER ceremony was held at Shirley Boys’ High School to welcome back the tiny hut designed by Manaia WilsonMoses on August 28. The year 10 student won the school’s section of the city council’s tiny huts design competition last year with his design, Te Wharau. The wharau, is 2m x 2m and was originally planned as a temporary feature to liven up New Brighton’s public spaces last summer. The hut was one of five which became so popular that in March the local community voted they should stay longer. Now two of the huts need to be

moved as construction work begins on New Brighton’s beachside playground. Shirley Boys’ High head of maths Tom Davies, who encouraged Manaia to enter the competition, said it was fitting to have Te Wharau relocated to the school. “We’re very proud to have Te Wharau and when we move to the new school site in 2019 we will have a permanent place for it there.” Of the remaining tiny huts, one will be decommissioned due to wear and tear, one other may be relocated and the remaining two The Art o-mat and #MyBrightonHut will stay where they are.

CEREMONY: Shirley Boys’ High students welcome back the tiny hut with a haka.

‘Michelangelo’ remembered for time Pat Goosey who passed away on August 10, aged 90, spent decades with the North Beach Surf Life Saving Club. Journalist Ian Stuart looks back on his life AT THE age of 90, as his health began to fail and 18 months before he died earlier this month, surf lifesaving veteran and respected Christchurch businessman, Pat Goosey, still had his whimsical sense of humour. “You know what Cyril O’Neill nicknamed me?” he asked Christchurch author Tony Murdoch. “No. What?’ “Michelangelo.” “Why?” “Because I was a bloody painter!” Patrick Thomas Goosey, who began his painting business in New Brighton in 1951, was the patron and a life member of the North Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. His story about Michelangelo came up during an interview for a centennial book Mr Murdoch was writing on the club, Black and White, A History of the North Beach Surf Life Saving Club. The man who coined the Michelangelo nickname, Cyril O’Neill, was also a life member

and patron of the North Beach Club. And like Mr Goosey, he also was a club member for 81 years without a break until he died in 2010. Several months before he died after a brief illness, Mr Goosey, 91, attended his final club function. Late last year he got a standing ovation when he was wheeled into a function as the club celebrated 100 years of beach patrols on the popular east coast Christchurch beach. He was barely 10 when he joined the club in 1936. It started an enduring passion for the sport for the next 81 years. World War 2 soon intervened and he joined the navy in 1944 aged 18. He returned from war service and was voted onto the club committee but continued with beach patrols and competitive surf lifesaving. For the next few decades surf lifesaving was part of his life. It was a family affair. He met his late wife Lois Dean when she joined the club during the war. They married in 1951 and their four children all played an active role in beach patrols and com-

petition. Lois died in 2014. Their son Paul has been a member of North Beach for more than 50 years and like his father, is also a life member. Pat Goosey’s friends say for more than eight decades he had a modest and self-effacing commitment to surf lifesaving.

“Pat Goosey was one of those quiet and committed achievers in life who believed in action and not talk and that applied to everything he was involved in,” said North Beach Surf Life Saving club president Roger Smith. “Very rarely would he take the credit for the huge contribution

he made to commerce, to the community and to surf lifesaving.” In 1980 at the age of 54 he was awarded a New Zealand Surf Lifesaving Service Award for outstanding service. He was a life member of the Canterbury Surf Lifesaving Association and in 1962 aged 36 he became a member of the 21 club with the registration number 169. This club was formed in 1948 and recognises 21 years of non-stop service to the sport. The North Beach club recognised his contribution 50 years ago in 1967 when he was made a life member.

Tall sunflowers on kids’ wish lists „„ By Sophie Cornish CHILDREN WILL learn valuable gardening skills and knowledge during the Daltons Sunflowers in Kindergartens Project. Seventeen Christchurch kindergartens will compete to grow the tallest sunflower or widest sunflower head. Each kindergarten was sent a Daltons starter pack with everything the children need to grow their own sunflowers, which have the potential to grow up to 4m. The tallest sunflower ever

grown in the project’s history was 3.12m. The children will learn how to sow and care for seedlings as well as daily care of their plant. Daltons general manager, Colin Parker, is thrilled with the return of the project this year. “The competition aspect adds a little extra fun to the project for the children, but we are more focused on creating opportunities to spark a lifelong love of gardening.” The competition runs until December 6, and winners will be announced on December 8.

11-year-old with golden gloves SPORTS „„ By Sophie Cornish JOSH TONGA may only be 11 but he is no stranger to success in the boxing ring. Taking out his second title in two years, Josh won the under-42kg national title at the Australian Golden Gloves in Brisbane. In 2016, Josh won the under-40kg title. His opponent, Cooper White, of Nabby’s Gym in Wellington, had already won the under-38kg title but agreed to box Josh on the day, otherwise he would’ve won uncontested. The boys, who according to Josh’s coach, Jamie Roberts, are now “friends for life”, boxed for three rounds at 90sec per round. Josh will also compete for Canterbury at the inter-regional primary and intermediate schools crosscountry championships on September 28. Cross-country has helped keep Josh fit, along with being at the boxing gym twice a week. Roberts has high hopes for Josh’s sporting future, claiming he can do anything he sets his mind to.

“Sport will be a big part of his life, whether it be boxing, rugby or running,” he said. Josh has set the bar high for his own future, telling his coach he wants to get 10 golden gloves titles in a row. “He’s aiming for 10, he wants to do 10 in a row,” Mr Roberts said. Mr Roberts has no doubt this is possible, calling Josh a quiet and humble athlete. Family is a big driver behind Josh’s support, with his grandmother, Ngaire Wealleans, picking him up from school and taking him to trainings most days. His father, Malotu Tonga, previously played prop for the Tongan rugby team, measuring up at 185cm.

However, with the family now all grown, the home is much too large - and the owners have made the final decision to downsize and move on! Beautifully established section and convenient family location. Mitchell Roberts & Mana Tai

Denture specialists expert at problem solving for patients Ryan Carlton and his team of expert technicians at Dentures Plus in Innes Road are highly skilled in the design and manufacture of flexible partial dentures. “We also use industry-leading injection moulding equipment for all our dentures, Ryan says, “and we provide dentures not only for our own patients, but also for dentists throughout New Zealand.” For anyone experiencing problems with their teeth or gums Dentures Plus offers a free consultation to assess their oral health and possible treatment plans, Ryan says. “People needing first-time dentures or immediate dentures can come directly to us and we will work with their regular dentist or if necessary arrange with another dentist for the extraction of their teeth in preparation for getting dentures fitted,” he says. “Our team are excellent at problem solving for our patients and providing them with a comfortable, functional, natural-looking solution.” Ryan emphasises the importance of keeping dentures clean and healthy to avoid the damage that can occur from wearing them. Dentures Plus offers a full

range of products for keeping dentures in tip-top condition, including denture cleaners, brushes and denture baths for soaking the dentures. He particularly recommends Caldent denture cleaner, as it is non-abrasive and effectively removes stains, calculus and plaque. All the products can be purchased at the clinic, or through the Dentures Plus website, www.denturesplus.co.nz. While Christmas is still a few months away, for those people wanting to have new dentures in time for the festive season, now is the time to get the process underway, Ryan says. “By talking to us now, and getting started, the new dentures will be settled in and comfortable by Christmas, so you can enjoy all the festivities without any denture problems.” Dentures Plus is located at 396 Innes Road. To make an appointment to discuss your needs, phone 385 5517.

JO HAYES NEWS UPDATE

CHRISTCHURCH EAST Contact me anytime E jo.hayes@national.org.nz W www.johayes.co.nz

I’m Jo Hayes, National’s list MP based in Christchurch East. I love East Christchurch. I’ve been National’s List MP in the electorate for more than three years now, and from day one I have felt at home. Now I’m excited to stand for election again in this unique, diverse, welcoming community and remarkably beautiful part of Aotearoa. The East has been saddled with more than its fair share of set-backs but I’m impressed with the courage and fortitude of its communities as they have risen to the challenges and frustrations of rebuilding broken infrastructure and homes. I truly believe that with time and continued investment, East Christchurch will emerge as the city’s most desirable region. I’m absolutely certain that the very best is yet to come. It’s a privilege to share Christchurch East with you and now I’m excited to share with you National’s vision for a better future for our community and our nation. Nga mihi mahana.

A bit about me I’m a country girl at heart: I’m as comfortable in gumboots as I am in Parliament, and certainly didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth. But I’ve also proven that hard work, grit and determination go a long way to turning your life around for the better. I remember what it’s like to be a single mother working, raising a family and studying for an education. It’s tough. Then, when I met my husband Pat, we partnered together to build our Manawatu farm while I served on school boards and worked for local council.

I know that hard work does reap great rewards – I’m living proof of that – but only in a society with a strong economy, job opportunities and a positive vision for the future. That’s a future that National is successfully working hard to establish for you and your family.

Take the opportunity this year and give National your Party Vote.

My time in Christchurch East There’s a big difference between electorate MPs and list MPs. Electorate MPs represent the cares and concerns of their constituents at Parliament, whereas list MPs are free to focus more on government business. But I don’t believe in doing anything by halves, so I decided to treat Christchurch East as my own electorate when I came here as a list MP three years ago. I’ve gotten involved in local communities, supported local causes and fought to have Christchurch East’s voice heard on local and national issues.

My values When I chose to get involved in politics, there was no question in my mind that the National Party was the best option. Its values of strong families, safe and secure communities and equal opportunities resonated with me.

Update in the East

More of me in the East

New Avonside Girls/Shirley Boys underway On 4 August, I joined Associate Education Minister Tim Macindoe as he turned the first sod of the new Avonside Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High Schools’ co-located site at QEII park. The state-of-the-art school will include: • a Performing Arts Centre with a 750-seat theatre and a second smaller 100-seat theatre,

You’ll be seeing even more of me around Christchurch East over the next month: The Christchurch East National team of volunteers has been busy helping me put up hoardings for the election. We’ve also spent a lot of time door knocking. It’s been fantastic to meet many of you and talk about what’s important to you. So keep a look out for my smiling face – if you haven’t already seen it on my van – and let’s chat soon. Remember, you are always welcome to get in touch: I’m here to help.

• four full-sized sports’ fields with a 400m running track, • three full-sized indoor gymnasiums, two of which can be joined to host events, • a café and fully-equipped commercial teaching kitchen, • a new centrally located, satellite facility for students with special needs, operated by Ferndale School.

I never really planned a political career, but after many years working in the health sector I realised I had two choices: be part of the problem or part of the solution. I chose the latter.

Those of you whom I’ve had the privilege to meet will know that I shoot straight from the hip, but I’ll also back you all the way to Parliament to get the best results and outcomes for our communities and families in East Christchurch.

www.national.org.nz

The $220 million project is expected to be complete by Term Two of 2019. It’s part of the Government’s $1.15 billion Christchurch Schools Rebuild programme.

Our Government has committed more than $5 billion in school property expenditure, more than any other government. Education is the key to our kids’ future, and we want to make sure our kids have the best head-start in life.

Finance Minister visits Christchurch East It was great to have a visit from Finance Minister Steven Joyce in Christchurch East in August. His first budget in May of this year will financially benefit everyday Kiwi families and give them the help they need to succeed and prosper.

jo.hayes@national.org.nz www.johayes.co.nz

What I love about the National Party is that we’re fiscally responsible too. So we’re sticking to our word to bring down the national debt at the same time and ensure that our kids’ future is bright, and that their tomorrow is not weighed down with today’s debt.

What’s important What’s really important? Well, your vote is important. Your vote helps determine who will govern New Zealand from 23 September onwards. When you give us your vote, you are putting trust in us to deliver a Government that represents what’s important to you. “When it comes down to it, we all care about the same things.”

Family

Voting Sites in Christchurch East Aranui Primary School Hall, 257 Breezes Road, Aranui Avebury House, 9 Evelyn Couzins Avenue, Richmond Banks Avenue School Library, 71 Banks Avenue, Dallington Bromley School Hall, 33 Keighleys Road, Bromley Burwood Christian Centre, 54 Bassett Street, Burwood

The National Government has a new $2 billion a year Family Incomes Package that will help low and middle-income earners with young families and higher housing costs to get ahead. We’re also increasing parental leave entitlement to 22 weeks and funding families using IVF for a third cycle.

Education and health We’ve got $7 billion new investment tagged for public services like health, education, and law and order over the next four years. We’re also better targeting funding to schools that need it most, by replacing the decile system with a Risk Index. Plus, an additional 600,000 lower income New Zealanders will have access to $18 doctor visits under National. National will roll out a suite of technology, maths and language initiatives in schools to ensure our young people have the skills to succeed in a more digital and internationally connected world. Plus, parents will be able to track their child’s progress online throughout the year.

Housing The Government has poured a massive investment into social housing from Aranui to Shirley, and continues to actively build as part of its social housing programme.

Jobs Thanks to National’s strong economic management and your hard work, there are more jobs and opportunities for people in Canterbury. New Zealand’s unemployment rate continues to drop and is currently at 4.8%. In Canterbury, it’s even lower than that. In fact, there were 333 more jobs advertised in Canterbury in July 2017 than a year ago.

Business We’ve tagged $4 billion to help build the public infrastructure we need as a growing economy, as well as additional funding to strengthen the Business Growth Agenda to help drive further economic growth, create jobs, and lift wages.

Proven leadership Bill English is “The Rock” who safely steered New Zealand through the global financial crisis and turned the country’s deficit around into a surplus. That means that we once again have options to increase important services for Kiwis without burdening the economy with debt.
