Residents’ safety fears over southern motorway extension „„ By Emily O’Connell HALSWELL RESIDENTS’ have safety concerns over the $195 million Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2. Halswell Residents’ Association member Ross McFarlane said there are two issues which have been overlooked – cyclists and pedestrians having to cross four lanes of traffic and a longer drive for Halswell residents to get on the motorway. But the New Zealand Transport Agency’s principal project manager Geoff Griffiths said community consultation for the motorway started in 2010 and its main focus has been creating walking and cycling facilities. “Our plan is to install a pedestrian and cyclist refuge in the middle of the road at the four-lane approach to the proposed Halswell Junction Rd roundabout. This will give people a safe place to stop and wait, and also means they will only need to cross two lanes of Halswell Junction Rd at a time,” Mr Griffiths said. But Mr McFarlane doesn’t believe this is a safe option. He said it’s a complete oversight of the needs of pedestrians and cyclists in the Halswell area. “The crossing point proposed will be at a point where all traf-

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER fic coming off the motorway heading in the direction of Hornby and all traffic heading to Halswell will be either exiting or entering the roundabout. Why should we be accepting a lower safety level than already exists and in an area that will have much greater traffic volumes?”

Mr McFarlane said. In response to the residents’ association’s concerns about how long it will take to get on the motorway, Mr Griffiths said NZTA believes the time savings for a large number of people will far outweigh what will probably be less than a minute of extra travel

time for local residents. The residents’ association has been in contact with Selwyn MP Amy Adams and she is writing a letter to the NZTA addressing the issues. The Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2 is on target to be ready by early 2020, which

will see a section of Main South Rd widened to four lanes and the project linked up to the Halswell Junction Rd end of the motorway. The motorway aims to halve travel time between Rolleston and Christchurch from 30 to about 15min.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK EVERY SPORTS club needs an Alan Jamieson. The 69-year-old Avonhead resident has dedicated a lifetime to St Albans cricket but after five decades of administration work he’s decided to call it quits. On page 10, we talk with Jamie about his time at the club and why he’s decided to close his innings. He joined the club from Papanui High in January 1965 and played 521 games, took 1260 wickets and scored 7008 runs until March 2006. That’s not a bad scoreboard in anyone’s reckoning. And Jamie says he won’t be seen much around the club now either and he’ll be likely watching matches from a discreet distance. “I want to give them a chance to take the reins without me hovering around,” he says of the new administrators. - Barry Clarke

Supermarket wins booze battle „„ By Bridget Rutherford A SUPERMARKET has won a three-year battle allowing it to display alcohol at the end of aisles and facing other groceries – for now. The Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority has decided to allow New World Bishopdale to display its alcohol where it is, until it renews its off-licence next year. But medical officer of health Alistair Humphrey (right) said the decision would increase shoppers exposure to alcohol, resulting in more sales. “More sales of alcohol results in more harm, both directly and indirectly,” he said. Currently, the alcohol is displayed on an outer aisle. At the rear of the supermarket, it faces the dairy chillers, while at the other end, it is opposite the bakery products. Under new rules in the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, supermarkets and grocery stores must restrict the display of alcohol to a single area.

SUCCESS: New World Bishopdale has won a long-running battle over how it can display PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

alcohol.

The area should be out of the way so customers do not have to walk through it when doing their general shopping. In 2014, New World Bishopdale’s new owner Bond Markets, applied to the district licensing committee for a new off-licence under the new rules. During the hearing, concerns were raised about the alcohol display being in the general shopping area. But owner Nigel Bond said due to space restraints, there were no other options. The committee ruled to restrict the area, so Bond

Markets appealed the decision to ARLA, which ruled in its favour. Dr Humphrey then appealed ARLA’s decision to the High Court. Justice David Gendall then quashed ARLA’s ruling. After a Court of Appeal sitting, ARLA reconsidered the appeal against the district licensing committee’s original 2014 decision in July. ARLA said the supermarket’s off-licence was up for renewal next year. “The Authority does not consider it in the interests of justice that the parties are put

to the trouble and expense of having to renew the licence only to have to do so again almost immediately thereafter.” But Dr Humphrey said ARLA declined to take into account limiting exposure to alcohol. “By placing alcohol directly opposite a section of the supermarket which most shoppers frequent, exposure to alcohol, often significantly discounted, will be increased,” he said. Foodstuffs South Island retail general manager Tim Donaldson said he was “very pleased” with the decision.

Your Local Views Sharing cultures in Halswell New market aims to

build kids’ confidence

Walter Lewthwaite is a team leader at Ricecube, which welcomes overseas people to the community and makes them feel at home In Halswell, close to a growing Asian community in Christchurch’s south-west, is Ricecube, a group which welcomes international people with food, friendship and help. South West Baptist Church has been running Ricecube for more than 10 years.  The group has hosted hundreds of recent arrivals to New Zealand as they seek to find friends, understand the language, and find their way around New Zealand’s systems. This is just one of a number of group’s which the church runs for international visitors. Ricecube is family-friendly and caters for adults to pre-schoolers, with english levels from beginner to advanced. Every Friday, we meet over tea. Typically, we start with an Asian-style meal, which might have Chinese, Japanese, Korean or other flavours.  Then there are games and

WELCOME: People at Ricecube share a dinner together.

activities which both form and strengthen relationships. Finally, we have small study classes targeted at different ages and language levels.  For our studies, we use the bible to learn what it has to say about life, and guest’s practice their english language skills in the company of others who are learning along with them.  A good proportion of helpers are trained Educational Services Overseas Limited teachers, and increasingly the group is run by internationals. One of the great stories is of a Chinese lady, a new arrival in

Christchurch, who had heard of Ricecube, but only knew it was in Halswell. So she climbed on a Halswell bus and asked the driver to take her to “Ricecube”.  He made an unscheduled stop, directed her through an alleyway to the venue, and said to say ‘hello’ to Jenna at the welcoming desk.  Jenna happened to be his wife.  The Chinese lady stayed for two years before returning home with many delightful memories of the welcome she experienced. Friendships develop and people meet outside of the Friday evening events to explore attractions in the city and countryside, develop CVs for job applications, work through the house-buying process, make contacts for schools, escort people through bureaucracies, and so on.  And, of course, they all share food, with lots of fun and laughter.

„„ By Emily O’Connell OLD TOYS, books, swan plants and baking were among the items on sale on Saturday at the first ever Kids’ Market in Halswell. The new Halswell Community Hub, which opened earlier this year, hosted the market. The hub facilitates groups such as the Halswell craft group and HIPPY, which supports children, young people and families. The hub also hosts youth group meetings and a casual coffee morning. About 25 tables run by children were at the market and a waiting list for tables was set-up due to demand. Halswell Community Market co-ordinator Kate Glassenbury said the idea started when her children needed to fundraise money for a snowboarding camp. A kids’ corner was then set-up as part of the monthly Halswell Community Market, and because of its popularity, the Kids’ Market was created. Mrs Glassenbury said the market is a great opportunity for children to build confidence,

St Peter’s restoration hits snag „„ By Emily O’Connell A $600,000-plus funding bid to help the restoration of St Peter’s Anglican Church has hit a road block. But parish reverend Nick Mountfort is confident the problem is only a temporary hiccup. The Upper Riccarton church, which was consecrated in 1858, was damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The $636,208 Nick heritage incenMountfort tive grant application was deferred to the Social and Community Development Committee at the city council meeting on Thursday. City councillor Phil Clearwater said it was the staff view and the view of the committee that the church didn’t fit the heritage incentive fund. “There’s a strong acceptance around the table that St Peter’s Anglican Church plays a greater role in its community than

simply a local church,” Mayor Lianne Dalziel said.

Rev Mountfort said he was pleased because it gave them the

opportunity to look at it in the future. The application was seeking funding for structural strengthening, priced at $905,000. The strengthening work is part of a larger $3.93 million plan to restore, upgrade, alter and extend the church. Rev Mountfort said the city council had a lot of demands on its money and he thought it was doing the best it could. He said he was looking forward to the restorations. “Well, I’m really excited about it because it’s a lovely church and it’s one of the historic churches in the Riccarton region,” Rev Mountfort said. St Peter’s has been paid $1.5 million from insurance and more than $600,000 has been donated but its still needs a further $2 million. The committee will report back to city council in November with alternative funding sources. •Donations to St Peter’s Anglican Church can be made at www. stpeterschurch.nz/donatenow

Garden’s future unknown „„ By Emily O’Connell THE RICCARTON West Community Garden is in need of two vital ingredients – a hand and a home. The garden, on Peverel St, has been an important source of vegetables for the community. Volunteer Loretta Te Paa said Housing New Zealand extended its lease until March 2019 but she doesn’t know what will happen afterwards. She wants the garden to stay where it is. “We’ve put a lot work into it down there. I know they were saying they were going to build there from when our lease expired but we’re not just sure at the moment,” Mrs Te Paa said. She said vegetables from the garden are delivered to about 70 families and are also left out for the community to take on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. She said the garden is great for the community but they don’t get many volunteers. “We’ve done so well, we want to keep it going,” Mrs Te Paa said.

“I’M SO GLAD WE MADE THE MOVE WHEN WE DID.”

Chef determined to teach men how to cook „„ By Emily O’Connell AN INITIATIVE to help men cook will be launched in Riccarton later this month. Men2Cook founder and chef James Bradshaw started the programme in Perth after he noticed a lot of older men, whose wives had passed away, couldn’t cook for themselves. Mr Bradshaw wants to teach men how to cook basic but nutritious food and how to cook for one person on a budget. “I just want to teach them how to live and survive. I know that sounds strange but going from quite a comfortable background in Perth, into some of these people’s houses who had quite nice houses (then) to see the state they had got in, say six months since their wife had died, it’s quite eye-opening actually. It’s emotional really,” he said. Mr Bradshaw has lived in New

Zealand for nine years, and has been working to set up a programme here for four months. The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board has approved a grant of $2500 from its 2017-18 discretionary response fund to the Oak Development Trust for the programme. The grant will be used to buy utensils for the pilot programme, which starts on October 27 at the Riccarton Baptist Church. The five-week pilot course will cost $25 and be held during the day, although if the programme proves popular, a night-time version might be created. He said the course helps men to not only cook but socialise too. Mr Bradshaw said the course is aimed at young men who attend university, separated men, cultural exchange students and MAN FOOD: James Bradshaw (left) breaks an egg with 81 year-old Larry Pateman of Riccarton at recently bereaved men. his cooking course for men.

Students lead safety initiative „„ By Emily O’Connell A BID by Christchurch Boys’ High students to make the school’s Kahu Rd entrance safer has paid off. The Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood Community Board approved the request for a ‘no-stopping’ restriction to be implemented at the entrance to ensure better visibility. A junior CBHS student was nearly hit by a car exiting the school so he reported it to the student executive council. With help from teachers, the council put together a proposal for the community board. The council’s deputy chairman Mitchell Redman said the area on Kahu Rd was an accident waiting to happen. Mitchell doesn’t think anyone would be against making a ‘nostopping’ restriction as it would only eliminate two or three car parks. “I can’t imagine that there will

be that much of an issue with it, because we’re pretty lucky with all the parking that we’ve got around school. All the students’ have got access to parking all down Tui St,” Mitchell said. Community Board chairman David Cartright said it was great

to see people from the community get involved. “I don’t know the roll of CBHS at the moment but there’s a significant number of people and I for one don’t want to be responsible for some form of accident to occur,” Mr Cartright said.

„„ By Emily O’Connell THE HALSWELL Residents’ Association has made a submission in support of the city council’s move to ban the sale of vehicles on the road. Under the proposed Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, people would be banned from parking vehicles on a road or parking spot to offer it for sale unless it was being used for day-to-day travel. The main reason was because it distracted motorists. The bylaw would combine two current traffic-related bylaws. Halswell Residents’ Associa-

tion secretary David Hawke said cars for sale parked on the side of a road are a safety hazard and decrease the community value. Mr Hawke posted on the Halswell Community Group Facebook page and asked for residents thoughts on the issue. Most responded negatively, saying they didn’t see the harm. He believed people only made a fuss if they were unhappy and people who might agree with the ban would be too scared to post their thoughts. Submissions to city council on the bylaw closed yesterday.

Move to front row pays off for Shilo St Andrew’s skipper makes New Zealand Schools side „„ By Andrew King SPEED AND power are two attributes needed in the modernday hooker. But 18-year-old Shilo Klein has something else too: He’s a natural midfielder. The St Andrew’s College student, who moved from second-five to hooker last year, was one of 25 named in the New Zealand Schools side to play three games against two Australian and a Fijian team in Sydney. He didn’t play in the … to the Fijian Schools side on Thursday. Christ’s College first XV captain and centre Isaiah Punivai was also named in the New Zealand Schools side. Klein was also included in the Crusaders Academy for next year and is looking forward to making a career out of rugby. He weighs in at 105kg and is 180cm. He’s well-suited to the forward pack, first XV co-coach Mike Johnston said. “The skills he learnt at secondfive has helped out as a hooker. He has developed some really

good passing skills and lines to run out in those wider channels,” he said. “We thought he would be a good fit in that position and that has been proved correct with his selection in the New Zealand Schools side.” Klein, who was born in Sacramento, California, said it was a no-brainer to move into the forward pack. “I had a lot of feedback that this position would suit my style of play. I played like a forward in the backline, I ran straight and looked for good physical goforward,” he said. It took him a few attempts to

feel comfortable in the middle of a scrum, but now he loves it. “In my first scrum, I felt claustrophobic, but I got used to it,” he said. Klein captained St Andrew’s this year, leading them to fifth in the UC Championship and third in the co-ed cup in the New Zealand Barbarians first XV championship. He moved to Christchurch when he was three with his parents, Howard and Wendy. “I play the sport in one way or another all year round, as I play touch and sevens also. I really want to play professionally some day,” he said.

Jamieson pulls up stumps at St Albans SPORTS „„ By Andrew King ST ALBANS Cricket Club’s season will begin this weekend. After 52 years as a club member – 44 of those as president and chairman – Alan Jamieson, 69, has pulled has pulled stumps on his administration career to allow a new crop of management to take it into the future. He may not be at the ground for the opening game – but you might see him watching the action from afar. After 52 years, 44 as president and chairman, the Avonhead man has pulled stumps on his administration career to allow a new crop of management to take it into the future. “I want to give them a chance to take the reins without me hovering around,” he said. On August 1, Graham Curgenven took over as president and Pierre Flavell as chairman. Jamieson oversaw the merger between the St Albans Women’s Cricket Club and men’s club in 1977, one of the first clubs to do so in the city, saw the coming and going of a number of professional players at the club and watched

Chris Harris, Chris Martin and Mark Priest go on to play for New Zealand. He said he can’t take credit for Martin’s batting style, which is famous around cricket grounds both here and abroad. “He was a number 11 the day he joined the club from Christchurch Boys’,” he laughed. Jamieson joined the club from Papanui High in January 1965 and played 521 games, took 1260 wickets and scored 7008 runs until March 2006. Jamieson played “on the front foot” both on and off the pitch resulting in a few run-ins with

cricket bosses. “Lee Germon and I have had some fierce conversations over the years, I didn’t win too many of those,” he said with a chuckle. He said the club had become a bit “nomadic” after the 2014 redevelopment of Hagley Oval, but the overall end result was a fantastic international cricket ground. Jamieson said the lure of the game will be hard to stay away from, but as he did after finishing his playing days, he will watch from a distance.

“I used to watch from afar after I finished playing, behind trees and in cars, because, you know how it is. If you are hanging around, soon you are called up to fill in then your back playing,” he said. The main thing he will miss is the communication with all the players, officials, coaches and management of the club, he said. “I have noticed since I have been away the communication has stopped. It remains to be seen if the winter month quietness will reflect the summer months,” he said. One of the hardest and

best moments in his long tenure share a common date: January 30, 2009. The clubrooms, in Hagley Oval, suffered an arson attack at about 7am, burning it to the ground. Jamieson said it was the worst moment of his time at the club standing on the field watching his beloved clubrooms billow smoke and collapse in the inferno. “But rebuilding it brought the club together. The club rallied and it made it stronger,” he said. Now retired, Jamieson said he has time to do something else rather than cricket.

Pupils, parents join in Ilam cultural day „„ By Emily O’Connell ILAM SCHOOL’S biennial cultural day saw about 500 pupils dress in outfits which represented their 62 different nationalities. The day began with a whole school assembly, followed by a parade down nearby roads and through Canterbury University. Pupils then took part in a concert, performing an item special to their culture. Parents brought in traditional food for a shared lunch. Principal Paul Dolan said a highlight was having parents join in the celebrations as well, making it a community event. “Some of the parents wore their traditional dress on that day. It’s quite emotional, parents stand their with their arms around each other with tears rolling down their faces as the children are performing. It’s just a lovely, lovely day,” Mr Dolan said. He said the day, which is part of their cultural inquiry unit, fits in with the school vision of ‘I belong’. “That’s not just cultural or

It’s also about working together in groups,” he said. Mr Dolan said Ilam School must be one of the most cultural diverse schools in New Zealand.

“A local team for local people”

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit, most homes include at least one heat pump, if not a whole heating solution. They can provide cheap, clean heat and are much more convenient than a log burner as you just need to press a button. But how do you decide what is best? Choosing the right sized heat pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore important to get professional advice from heat pump experts. The range varies from wall mounted high walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems, ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted central heating systems allowing you to have a very discreet way of heating your whole home to a constant temperature throughout. Firstly, you must select a heat pump that is suitable for the size of the space you wish to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area taken into consideration but also, insulation, building orientation, windows and ceiling space. There are a wide range of heat pumps available with different heating outputs so it is important to select the correct size for your requirements that will handle the job but not be unnecessarily overpowered. Secondly, the location of your heat pump is also extremely important. The cheapest installation is a back to back where the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind the indoor unit however this is not necessarily always the best option. It is vital that the indoor unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is the location of the outdoor unit. Most people do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly in their outdoor entertaining area or right outside their bedroom window. Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands have come and gone over the years but there are a number of manufacturers who provide reputable and reliable products. All brands vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems and price, so it depends on your application as to which will be most suitable. Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands backed up by good technical after sales service. Ensure your heat pump is installed by an accredited installer. This will not only ensure correct installation of your heat pump, but also validate the manufacturers warranty. Other things to consider when choosing a heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi capabilities. Heating is a major investment in your home and it is vital to get the right advice. Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply, installation and servicing of all major brands of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as to which system will suit your application the best.

Miracle weight loss fruit An extract of a small pumpkin-like fruit called Garcinia Cambogia from India & Asia has shown itself to greatly assist weight management & overall health. In fact many have found it to increase fat loss by 2 to 3 times greater than normal. T.V. Dr. Oz has said it is the most effective & fastest working natural supplement to support weight loss. Even without exercise & diet changes many have found it beneficial, although even better & quicker results are often obtained with extra exercise & an improved diet. The extract of this amazing fruit is called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or CitriMax. Research has shown HCA to help suppress the appetite, reduce cravings, feel fuller for longer, increase energy levels, help prevent fat from being made & stored in the body, increase lean muscle mass, increase serotonin levels in the brain that help control mood & sleep (great for emotional eaters), improve cholesterol levels that may help reduce the chances of strokes & cardiovascular disease, help prevent sugar spikes as well as other health benefits. It is considered a very safe supplement (although check first if you are on medication) as it has been used for centuries as a flavouring agent & digestive aid. To obtain reliable results it is important

to take a product that contains a standardized extract of 60% HCA & also take the recommended amount as used in the clinical research. Some supplements also contain ChromeMate, a well-researched form of niacin-bound chromium to help improve the results even more. Further information & advice is available in store at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. Call in & talk to our naturopath & medical herbalist or one of our helpful natural health advisers. We are Always Happy to Help!

Aspire

Take a trip with Third Aged Tours

Aspire Canterbury is a not-for-profit community-focused organisation committed to meeting the needs of older persons with mobility issues and disabled persons. Their aim is to assist people in making informed decisions about accessing services or choosing products that will assist them in their daily lives. They have taken their services on the road and out into communities, meeting people in their environments to make daily living easier. Aspire Mobile is a response to the need to reconnect, giving disabled people easier access to services and introducing them to new products which can make their lives more enjoyable and provide them with a sense of inclusion in the wider community. They will show you how to choose a walker or walking stick that is the correct height, provide information about both their services and other resources available

Taking people aged over 50 on trips around New Zealand and the world for nearly 20 years has earned Third Age Tours a brag book that Director Brenda CorbyYarrall says “businesses would give their eye teeth for.’’ “Taking small groups of 10 – 24 people means I can operate the tour in a relaxed, companionable manner. We have an absolute blast when we’re away. It’s all about having fun”. “Most of my trips are run annually because they’re so popular, but I’m always adding new destinations - like “Sicily, South Italy & Vatican” + “Cuba”, as people ask for them.’’ Brenda checks out all accommodation before booking it, and ensures the party spends at least a few nights at each place. “That way you don’t feel like you’re living out of a suitcase.’’ Many clients now have made over 20 tours with us, one has completed a whopping 27 tours. “My clients tell me they keep coming back

HEALTH & BEAUTY

A family affair at local gym When Ignite Fitness was set up at the Papanui Club in early 2016, the challenge was to create an exercise atmosphere that appealed to a diverse market. One of the areas identified was the involvement of family members and groups, manager of the fitness centre Eddie Kerrigan says. “We must have done something right as we now have numbers of families who have joined up. The environment at Ignite Fitness is a safe, non-threatening one in which parents can be confident that all their family members will be looked after in a professional and caring manner.” There are three families of four, four family groups of three, and around 25 family groups of two currently signed up, Eddie says. Two of those families are the Smith family and the Mackintosh family, and Eddie spoke to them about why they joined Ignite Fitness, and what they got out of it. There were a variety of reasons for joining. These included improving fitness, losing weight, keeping joints and limbs moving, stalling the effects of ageing and family bonding. The handy location of the gym was also an important factor, they said. Both families said they went to the gym two to four times a week, depending on

their school and work schedules. Asked what activities they enjoyed most, in order of popularity they said these were resistance training, cardio exercise and circuit classes, though they liked taking part in all of the activities and exercises. Depending on the activity, they sometimes competed with one another to see who could achieve the most, and both sets of parents tried to be an inspiration for their families. Both families said they had gained a number of health benefits since starting at Ignite Fitness. Strength and fitness were two key beneflts, but there was also pain management and all-over physical stability. In addition to the physical benefits, they enjoyed socialising with other gym members, and their self-esteem improved. “We are delighted that families like the Smiths and the Mackintoshes get so much enjoyment from coming to our gym, and new families and groups are always more than welcome to join,” Eddie says. Ignite Fitness is open 5.30am-9.30pm Monday to Friday and 5.30am-6.30pm weekends and public holidays. To find out more information about Ignite Fitness phone 359-9586, ext. 706 or email gym@papanuiclub.co.nz
