Assaults on parking wardens high in western suburbs „„ By Julia Evans PARKING WARDENS appear to be fair game in western suburbs. Latest statistics show of the 36 verbal and physical assaults on parking wardens in the city, seven were in Merivale, Papanui and Riccarton. And four of the seven incidents, including one of two assaults, took place in Merivale alone. On April 28, a parking warden was assaulted by the owner of the vehicle they were issuing a ticket on Papanui Rd outside Merivale Mall just before noon. The fine, for parking over the time limit, was $21. The offender had to have a restorative justice meeting with the parking warden and apologised. Wardens were also threatened and verbally abused on Leinster Rd in May and Winchester St in August. But at the time they were walking along the road, not issuing tickets. •Turn to page 4

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

IT’S A tough job being a parking warden in the western part of the city as our statistics show on page 1. Being a parking warden is a thankless job – for obvious reasons – and it takes a certain kind of character to be one – thick skin is an advantage. But it is a job that has to be done, otherwise no one would care about restricted parking. And the result of that would be a lot of angry motorists who wouldn’t be able to get a park. So if you’re getting a ticket, take it on the chin instead of trying to land one on someone just doing their job. Congratulations to St Andrew’s for winning the Connetics first XI football competition against St Thomas (page 13). – Barry Clarke

Wastewater work will affect traffic WESTMORLAND residents are being warned to expect traffic delays in the coming weeks. City council work is about to start on the new south-east Halswell wastewater project in the area. Traffic delays will affect motorists between the Cashmere Rd and Penruddock Rise intersection and the south end of Hendersons Rd. City council project manager Kylie Hills said stop-go traffic control would be put in place at the Cashmere Rd and Penruddock Rise intersection, and at two pipe-trench road crossings in and near the Hendersons Rd and Cashmere Rd intersection. “We’re asking those that travel through this area to allow an extra five minutes for their journeys,” she said. But Ms Hills assured the city council would get the work done as quickly as possible. “While there will be some disruption to motorists the long-term benefits to local residents in the area will outweigh the traffic delays in the short term.” The Cashmere Rd branch of the South East Halswell Wastewater scheme will divert

local network. The overall scheme involves constructing a pressure sewer network which is more than 8km long and up to 450mm in diameter, along with constructing a new pump station on Sparks Rd and carrying out upgrades to existing pump stations. The wastewater pipelines are being constructed in three sections – the first section runs

flows from Westmorland to a new pump station being built on Sparks Rd. This will take wastewater flows away from older downstream infrastructure and into other parts of the network. It will allow at risk infrastructure to be renewed without interruption of residents’ wastewater services as well as increasing the capacity of the

The second section will run between the pump station at the bottom of Penruddock Rise to the new pump station on Sparks Rd. And the third section is from the new pump station on Sparks Rd to an existing pump station on Wigram Rd.

High-tech help from library RAVI SANYAL’S creation might look like a toy monster truck. But it’s really a hi-tech remote controlled robot worth thousands of dollars. The creation of Halswell entrepreneur, Mr Sanyal, is used by home inspection companies to remotely check house foundations. And it was developed with 3D printing expertise found at Te Hāpua: Halswell Centre. Earlier this year Mr Sanyal’s company Techmatics Ltd was working on developing the specialised robot when they encountered frustrating problems with the supplier they were using for 3D printing.  While researching other options, Mr Sanyal found to his surprise that the library, which has access to seven network 3D printers, had the skills and resources he needed.  He was given help and advice from Danny McNeil, a Christchurch City Libraries learning specialist who helped him improve the design. Mr Sanyal was impressed with the print quality and the support he was given. “We needed to make a particular case for it and it had to be done on CAD but we were having problems with a local supplier,” Mr Sanyal said.

ROBOT: (Left to right) – Ravi Sanyal with Techmatics software developer Nathan Sinclair and city council learning specialist Danny McNeil.

“Halswell library has been fantastic. It just really helped us out, we printed 10 prototype cases for the camera on their 3D printer.” Mr McNeil said many people are unaware how up-to-date the libraries are with new technology, particularly with their 3D printers, which are great prototyping units and use biodegradable plastic. City council head of libraries and information Carolyn Robertson said this case demonstrates what the library service is capable of. “Having our library staff work on these kinds of projects means they are helping to support the economic contributions of local

entrepreneurs, making the city a better place for people, business and investment.” Techmatics, which also develops websites and apps and recently received funding from Government agency Callaghan Innovation, has sold several different versions of the robot developed with the library’s help. Mr Sanyal has plenty of other hi-tech ideas in the pipeline and plans to use Te Hāpua: Halswell Centre library again to 3D print future design prototypes. “We want to innovate things that make life easier for people – if we can help the community we’re interested,” he said.

Assaults on parking wardens high in west •From page 1 It comes as the number of assaults and abuse being reported by the city’s parking wardens has increased in the past year, in spite of them being given body cameras to wear. But the city council said the new technology has encouraged staff to report incidents more, because the footage provided reliable evidence. The 21 parking wardens were given the body-mounted cameras in April last year. They can be activated if staff think their safety is at risk. “Our experience has shown that the body worn cameras have increased safety for our staff by lessening the seriousness of

incidents and discouraging undesirable behaviour,” city council transport operations manager Aaron Haymes said. He said previously a number of incidents went under the radar, but the cameras now provided reliable evidence. “This means it’s more likely that somebody will be held to account for their actions, and that encourages staff to report.” Mr Haymes said the city council was always working on initiatives that reduced the risk of staff being harmed. “We want to make sure our staff make it through their work day safely and get to go home at the end of each day to their families.”

From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work spans all types of house building.

Building with difficult access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our larger competitors we do have their networks and buying power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective results possible.

Church rebuild delayed again after fire Skate park „„ By Julia Evans THE REBUILD of the Bishopdale church gutted by an arson attack last year has been delayed by at least a year. Demolition of the St Margaret’s Presbyterian Church on Farrington Ave started earlier in the month and construction won’t begin until at least the middle of next year. Reverend Andrew Nicol said the lengthy insurance process meant the rebuild process hit a brick wall. “It’s part of a long insurance settlement process but it’s settled now . . . the ball is rolling,” Rev Nicol said. He said the church was used to long insurance processes after the earthquakes and fire, even if it was a little frustrating. “It always takes longer than you think,” he said. In January, Nor’West News reported the rebuild was set to begin in the middle of the year. Now Rev Nicol said the timeline wasn’t clear but the church was “optimistic” a rebuild would begin by June next year. However, he said the congregation has a more positive outlook since it had its decommissioning service at the beginning of August.

“We’ve finished that process of saying goodbye, we can move onto the next chapter,” Rev Nicol said. The church is currently working with an architect, which is “really exciting”. The plans will then be approved by the congregation. “It’s now about being affirmative and complementary to the renewal of the whole area,” Rev Nicol said.

He said the church congregation was upset after the arson attack but the fire had emphasised how important the church is to the wider community. “There’s a good heart in Bishopdale and now we’re just looking to the future,” he said. The church suffered almost $2 million in damage when Cheyenne Destiny Jade Reed, a 35-year-old technician, broke

into it and started a fire in May last year. Reed was jailed for six years for the arson and other charges, including burglary, unlawful possession of a knife, breach of bail, receiving a computer and theft of a car. The congregation will continue to meet weekly at Isleworth School and is currently fundraising for the rebuild by selling cheese rolls.

„„ By Julia Evans A NEW skate park is in the pipeline for Papanui. The Papanui-Innes Community Board has asked city council staff to begin investigations into finding appropriate sites for a new skate park in the area. Staff are also investigating the possibility of offering free wi-fi at the park. To use a skate park, Papanui residents currently have to go to either St Albans, Burnside, Bishopdale or Belfast. City council staff will report back to the board on October 13 with appropriate sites and costings for design, consultation and construction. The board will then look to include this in its submission on the city council’s Long Term Plan later in the year. It comes as the board is also looking at extensions to the skate park half pipe at St Albans Park. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Does Papanui need a skate park? Where would you like to see it built?

Police investigate Templeton home invasion

POLICE ARE investigating a home invasion where an intruder allegedly broke in armed with a pistol. The man demanded money and other items from the occupants of a Templeton home at about 7pm on Sunday, police said. Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Joel Syme said he was carrying a pistol. The occupants were unharmed but have been shaken by the incident, he said. “We would like to reassure the public that we are working very hard to identify and locate the man involved in this incident. However, we do believe this was an isolated incident and there is no risk to the public,” he said. A scene examination is currently under way and police are following a number of leads. A stolen vehicle was located nearby, and initial police inquiries show it may be connected to the incident. Police want to hear from anyone who saw a white 1994 Ford Festiva hatchback in the Hornby or Templeton area between 6pm and 7.30pm on Sunday. •Anyone with information is asked to phone police on 363 7400 or CrimeStoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

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.

Villa Maria College cultural captain Lucy Sutcliffe writes about Con Brio choir’s experience at the Big Sing Finale in August On August 23, the 46 girls in Con Brio travelled to Auckland to compete in The Big Sing National Finale joining 24 other choirs from across the country. For the competition we performed five songs – three were performed at the regional competition, then two new songs that we learnt in eight weeks – Kuimba and Joyful Joyful. In the evening when we weren’t competing we had some down time.

AWARDS: Senior Con Brio members Sophie Townshend, Lucy Sutcliffe and Blythe Ward with choir director Naomi Hnat with their awards. ​ Most of us went to the Auckland waterfront and ended up singing songs there which attracted quite a crowd.

the organisers, demonstrates outstanding engagement with all elements of The Big Sing National Finale and shows the qualities and spirit requisite of ambassadors for youth. It was a real honour. The trip was not only a great time to perform as a choir, but was also a great time to bond with each other. The trip made me incredibly proud of all of all the girls, the way everyone behaved and performed made me so proud to be a part of Con Brio. •More schools, p9

TOP BALLERS: Rangi Ruru beat Christchurch Girls’ High 51-37 to claim the Whelan Trophy. PHOTO: RANGI RURU GIRLS’ SCHOOL

Rangi claim second basketball title in row

Your oral health is our focus!

„„ By Andrew King

We are proud to deliver these quality dental services:

RANGI RURU Girls’ School have won back-to-back Whelan Trophy division one titles, beating rivals Christchurch Girls’ High 51-37 last week. Played at Cowles Stadium, it was a repeat of last year’s Canterbury secondary school basketball final and, once again, Rangi Ruru came out on top. The final score was very different to the 74-62 final last year, when they wrested the trophy off CGHS. Rangi Ruru Alice Sproat was named MVP with nine points and 15 rebounds. She was backed up by Junior Tall Fern Esra McGoldrick’s 20-points and 17 rebounds. Rangi Ruru director of sport Jo Fogarty said there was a huge crowd there supporting the girls. “What an incredible atmosphere. That can really make all the difference to the game and I have no doubt that support played a part in Rangi’s decisive win this year,” she said. In the Whelan Trophy division two final St Margaret’s beat Avonside Girls’ High 65-56 to claim the title.

St Thomas’ pride shines through in loss SPORTS „„ By Andrew King A LATE comeback couldn’t get St Thomas’ over the line in the Connetics first XI football competition final as they were beaten 5-4 on penalties by St Andrew’s College. The final was played at English Park in front of a number of supporters who brought their school pride and drums to try to get their team over the line. The title was decided by a penalty shootout after the match was tied 3-3 at full time. St Thomas’ coach Richard Washington said while it was disappointing to lose, the team is young and they will learn a lot from the season. “It has been a great season and exceeded expectations . . . I know we have a very special team and plenty of depth at school so the future for St Thomas’ looks bright,” he said. “Some say you have to lose a championship final to win one. Fingers crossed that rings true.” Washington said St Andrew’s were tough competitors this year. “Credit to St Andrew’s who took their chances and (their) penalties were top shelf. You have

to respect a side that is stacked full of top quality players,” he said. He praised St Thomas’ supporters who followed the team to the final. “I think our college spirit shone and the support was incredible, we lost the game but sport won on the day. Our supporters came on and supported their St Thomas’ brothers in a time of need,” he said. “The boys chanting and drumming was pretty special

and school pride and culture is alive across all our codes at St Thomas’. We support every team when they are at the big occasions.” St Thomas’ are now looking to redeem themselves at nationals, which started yesterday in Napier. “We hope all the Christchurch schools do well at nationals, because it makes our competition harder and that’s what we want to develop quality players from the region,” he said.
