„„ By Julia Evans BELFAST Playcentre is racing against the clock to find a new home after its building was gutted by fire. The playcentre, next to Sheldon Park on Main North Rd, caught fire just after 1pm on Sunday.  With the school term starting next week, the playcentre is determined to find a new home so parents and children aren’t affected. A pot had been left on the stove, which caught fire during a fifth birthday party. “Two men put a fire blanket on the stove but it got out of control. Then they tried to use a fire extinguisher, which ran out of foam,” playcentre co-ordinator Julie O’Rourke said. “They did everything correctly . . . it’s just one of those things that happens.” The centre was evacuated and the two men were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation but were not taken to hospital. •Turn to page 5

Inside

YOUNG MEN, cars, speed and alcohol are unfortunately a perfect mix for tragedy. It was like that decades ago, and it still remains today and will no doubt into the future. Next week, two people affected by drink driving and crashes will talk to students at Christchurch Boys’ High School. One is a young guy who was the passenger in a car driven by a drink driver that crashed – and one a dad who lost his son to drink driving (see page 1). How students digest the talk will inevitably be up to them. Hopefully, when they are out at the weekend, they’ll remember the talk and not get into a car driven by a mate who has been drinking, or get behind the wheel themselves after having a few. – Barry Clarke

Fendalton roads worry

„„ By Julia Evans THERE ARE serious concerns for pedestrian and cyclist safety on Fendalton roads. And the creation of a working party to address the issues affecting Idris, Straven and Glandovey Rds has been a long time in the making, residents say. Traffic volume through the area is out of hand, the road layout is poor and the parts of the cycleway are too narrow, resident James Wilding said. The working party was established after Mr Wilding and other Fendalton residents Ross Seal and Barbara Hann made a deputation to the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board regarding these issues. The group also sent photos to city council staff in February and a letter signed by 200 residents to city councillors and the mayor. Working party members have not yet been confirmed but it will be made up of residents, including Mr Wilding, as well as community board members and city council staff. The residents want to create a “living street” atmosphere, which promotes pedestrians and discourages cars. “The board is keen to work

MEASURE: Part of the cycleway on Idris Rd is 60cm but according to city council regulation, it should be 1.5m. PHOTO: JAMES WILDING FEARS: A working party has been established for the streets around Idris, Glandovey and Straven Rds to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety. PHOTO: JULIA EVANS

productively with affected parties on the issues that have been raised about traffic volumes,” city council manager planning and delivery transport Lynette Ellis said. A date for its first meeting has not yet been set but residents are keen to address the mounting problems. Mr Wilding said there are a large number of trucks using the roads, which are classified as minor arterial or collector. “We have freight routes, for example Blenheim Rd. Those four

and six-lane roads are the ones freight should us,” he said. Part of the cycle lane is 60cm wide. Under the city council’s guidelines cycle lanes should be at least 1.5m wide, not including the gutter, Mr Wilding said. And he said it’s not uncommon for vehicles to cross into the cycleways, which he has photographed. “Children must be, and feel safe, on our roads, especially in residential areas and near schools. The city council ought to help ensure a safe and healthy

city for residents,” Mr Wilding said. The area has the highest density of residential heritage buildings in the city – which have been also been affected by the number of heavy vehicles, the residents said. “We seem to be creating a quiet largely traffic free CBD and busy suburbs. It is important the safety and character of suburbs right across the city is not lost as a result of post-earthquake changes,” Mr Wilding said. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Have you had bad experiences with traffic and safety in Fendalton?

In Brief SIGNS MISSING Traffic P120 signs are being reinstated on Merivale’s Tonbridge St. A city council engineer discovered the signs were missing after a resident complained about traffic issues in the area. PENGUIN BOXES Nesting boxes made by the Bishopdale MeNZ Shed are heading to Banks Peninsula for the Pohatu penguin colony next Wednesday. Children visiting the International Antarctic Centre were able to construct the kit set wooden boxes that will be used as shelter by penguins in Flea Bay near Akaroa. PEDESTRIAN CROSSING Work has begun on the installation of the $500,000 signalised pedestrian crossing on Sawyers Arms Rd, between Cotswold Ave and Glasnevin Dr. Work will be done between 7am and 7pm Monday to Saturday. Temporary lane closures through the site may cause traffic delays. Work is weather dependent, but it is expected to be complete by late November.

Build roads and the traffic will come Papanui city councillor and avid cyclist Mike Davidson writes about the major issue afflicting his ward and what he thinks would be a good alternative during Biketober One key issue facing the Papanui Ward, and the city, at the moment is traffic congestion. By 2041 it is predicted that there will be an additional 70,000 vehicle movements within the four avenues every day. Work is also currently underway on the Northern Corridor, which is due to be completed within the next three years. But I struggle to see what benefit the city will see from this $240 million roading project, which channels non-ratepaying residents into the heart of St Albans as they head into the central city. The built environment influences behaviour and it will not take long before this new fourlane highway will be at capacity. So what is the answer? Modal shift – encouraging

those who can, to use a different form of transport instead of a single occupancy vehicle – walking, cycling, catching a bus or car pooling. Perhaps if the money for this project had been invested into a decent passenger rail service from the north we could have had a true opportunity to influence behaviour for the better and created a truly sustainable public transport option. However, it would appear that numerous authorities and agencies have never taken seriously the possibility of passenger rail. The focus seems to be on the bus network as our public transport option even though the bus routes are not continuously separated from vehicles and are still forced to deal with the congestion street fight. Plus changes to the bus network now make it more difficult for a lot of people who have multiple changeovers and longer waiting times.

CONGESTION: Work turning Cranford St into a fourlane major arterial is about to begin, but city councillor Mike Davidson isn’t sure the money is being well spent. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

With 50 per cent of car trips in the city under 5km we need to encourage the uptake of cycling and walking as an alternative mode of transport. Survey after survey show that there are a large number of people wanting to cycle, but choose not to because they feel it is unsafe. The major cycleway programme is designed to remove this safety concern barrier and encourage more people to take up cycling.

There was never an expectation that the day these were completed there would be hundreds of new cyclists as it takes time to change culture. However, from cycleways completed so far, the numbers using these cycleways are already exceeding the predicted volumes. It is important that the cycleway programme is completed, public transport becomes more user-friendly and our transport culture is changed. If we don’t the congestion we are seeing today will pale in comparison to what will happen in the near future. We need our streets and transport network to work for everyone no matter what age, ability or form of transport used.

Readers respond to a Nor’West News article regarding businesses on Cranford St worried Northern Arterial upgrades will force them to close Conrad Fitz-Gerald – A bit naive to expect the city council to do something that actually helps local businesses and residents. Maree Clayton – Less cars! More trains. No-brainier. Should have been a priority, immediately post-quake. South and north out of the city. Quicker, easy. Less cars on road, saving all round and less stress. Sadly, too many missed opportunities from a bunch of bumbling bureaucrats. Need an airport rail but alas we got a bloody archway. Jan Driscoll – Heavens, there is a bike in the picture . . . a rare sight indeed. Cranford St is already a nightmare, especially around 3 to 6pm. And with heavy parking on both sides around the garage and shopping centre that will evidently be going and then a massive expensive housing development along there, you have got a disaster in the making. Feel really sorry for the businesses around the Innes Rd and Cranford St corner. Another example of top quality planning. Adding another lane to the Northern Arterial won’t fix it either. Get rail up and running.

Rob White – Well people have had at least 30 years to get used to this since it was first planned, and put off, and then off, and then back on again. The bigger problem is the city council actually agreeing to housing in the swamp on the other side of Cranford St. Sylvia Oliver – It is so hard on businesses after seven years you would think things would improve but, no, they get worse all the time. One wonders why our city council and so-called Government cannot intervene to protect the small businesses. Makes me so angry.

Lynda Byrnes – The majority of people who shop in supermarkets are sensible, don’t let the few idiots ruin for the rest of us. We buy our alcohol and consume it sensibly with friends over meals. They don’t ban the caffeine drinks and other things that effect our teenagers, why make it hard to buy alcohol for consenting adults?

Are you going to take away all my freedom of choice because some people can’t handle their drink or they are addicted to cigarettes, chocolate, Coca Cola, sugar, McDonald’s? Like I said personal responsibility Audrey Leslie – Alcoholic products should not be sold in supermarkets. It’s always the ones who can least afford it that are tempted to purchase alcohol when they go into the supermarket for food. I once watched two young men looking in the meat section, actually picked up a meat package, then returned

it to the freezer and purchased a carton of beers instead. Now that’s sad. Ann Vernon – Alcohol is a dangerous drug. I personally think a separate discrete area is appropriate. In some supermarkets you have to walk through the alcohol section to access the shop. We normalise binge drinking in New Zealand and minimise the serious harm it causes. I try to limit this normalising alcohol use with my children. Having a different area does not penalise adults in any way. We no longer have cigarettes on display. Why not the same for alcohol?

•From page 1 Ms O’Rourke said the playcentre, which has a roll of 25 children, is currently working towards finding a new place to hold its sessions. “We won’t really know what the next steps are until we meet with the insurance company . . . but the hope is to run it out of somewhere nearby,” she said. Ms O’Rourke said the playcentre will continue to support the families “devastated” by the fire. “We don’t operate in the school holidays, so that gives us a week to sort somewhere out . . . we won’t let it affect the families,” she said. But Ms O’Rourke said there would be a “shortfall” in terms of the insurance payout due to high demolition costs in the city. “We’ve had huge support from the community and playcentres around the country,” she said. Belfast Community Network chief executive Lynda Goodrick said the network of more than 15 groups will rally behind the playcentre. “We’re gutted, it’s devastating for the families. But we’re doing everything we can to help support them,” she said.

Breastfeeding programme recognised instore now!

ST GEORGE’S Hospital staff have been honoured for their commitment to breastfeeding. “Breastfeeding is important and helps to lay the foundation for good health in infancy for mothers and babies,” New Zealand Breastfeeding Alliance executive officer Jane Cartwright said. She said for nine years staff at the hospital’s maternity centre have “served as a beacon in the region” for their standards of breastfeeding support and care for new parents. “Since the beginning of this year, about 800 women have discharged from St George’s facilities exclusively breastfeeding their babies this is a great start towards

breastfeeding babies when they return home,” Ms Cartwright said. St George’s charge midwife Andrea Robinson emphasised the importance breastfeeding plays in the reduction in rates of childhood infections and protection against later health risks. Ms Robinson said that breastfeeding is one of the smallest investments a country can make to build its future prosperity. “We should all be proud of being an integral part of providing such a precious investment to our women and to the wider health of our community,” Ms Robinson said.

SERVICE: (From left) – Jane Cartwright, Sandra Wilson, Julia Daly, Andrea Robinson, and Maree Lewington have been recognised for their commitment to breastfeeding. ​

Expansion likely for community centre „„ By Julia Evans THE FOOTPRINT of the new St Albans Community Centre is set to expand. As a means of providing green space for the new facility, the city council has approved the Papanui-Innes Community Board’s recommendation to purchase a

neighbouring property. Last year city councillor Mike Davidson spoke to the owners of the property, which is at 130 Caledonian Rd to see whether the sale could go ahead. However, he would not release details of that conversation as they were “commercially sensitive.”

The property is next door to the Caledonian Rd side of the community centre site. Cr Davidson said the current community centre plans took up most of the current site, and once car parking was included, there would be little room for green space. City council general manager corporate services

Bruce Rendall said as the city council is “still in negotiations around acquiring an option on the land” further comment is not appropriate. The matter has been referred to the 2018-28 Long Term Plan preparation process. It has been delegated Mr Rendall to negotiate the purchase.

Thank you Northern Christchurch for your huge support and endorsement. I was honoured by an electorate majority increase from 2,500 in 2014 to over 10,000 in 2017 that tells me you value accessibility and commitment to your area. over the past three years, I have enjoyed being a hands-on MP who has strived to be accessible. During the elections, I received great feedback that residents value being able to access me through my Belfast office, my evening meetings and other events I arranged to connect to you over the past three years. I look forward to continuing to work hard to advocate on your behalf in Parliament and to ensure our communities are resourced to meet the demands of a rapidly growing area.

Main North Rd already has four sets of lights encompassing the mall on Langdons Rd, Halliwell Ave, Grassmere St and Sawyers Arms Rd. City council staff investigated and found the new signals would only add three to six seconds to the journey. And city councillor Mike Davidson said there was no compromise for people’s safety. “Pedestrian safety trumps a few seconds delay to motorists,” Cr Davidson said. The signals will be timed with the other sets of lights to keep delays to a minimum.

The crossing got the green light from the city council in May and will cost $450,000. “The crossing will provide a key link between the bus stops and Northlands Shopping Centre,” Ms Ellis said. However, concerns were raised by the Shirley-Papanui Community Board in 2015 about the new signals further delaying traffic on the busy road.

The aim of the signals is to improve pedestrian safety, which has been compromised by people taking a large number of unsafe crosses between the bus stops on Main North Rd.

‘Explosion of colour’ rewards gardeners „„ By Julia Evans THE LOVELOCKS have done it again. Northwood residents Brian and Janet Lovelock came away with the premier gold at this season’s spring gardening awards from the Canterbury Horticultural Society. The couple also added two gold awards from the Christchurch Beautifying Association’s spring garden awards to their collection in the open and secret garden categories. “We’re pretty proud, we’ve always been big gardeners,” Mrs Lovelock said, they spend almost every day outdoors. She said the trophies will be put in a display case at their house until they have to be returned for the next round of summer judging. Which she said the pair are already working towards. “Some of my seedlings are already coming up. It never stops,” Mrs Lovelock said. Although the Lovelocks spend every day in the garden together, they wouldn’t often be caught sitting out there having a cup of tea. “If we sit out there, we always spot something that could be better or needs to be fixed and keep working,” she said. But Mrs Lovelock said there

is nothing more rewarding than their garden. “You get the tiniest handful of seed and watch it turn into an explosion of colour in the garden displays,” she said. The Lovelock’s spring award winning garden included tulips, polyanthas and shrubs like rhododendrons and azaleas. But come November they’ll be pulling out the annuals and planting their summer garden.

Food for fundraiser PRETZELS, THAI jelly, tapas, Japanese curry, rice balls, sushi, waffles and lolly cake. Rangi Ruru Girls’ School students tried dishes from different countries. Dean of international students Louise Stanton said the International Club, headed by Amy Chen, organised the event as a fundraiser for St Andrew’s High School in Tonga. One of the sisters from St Andrew’s spoke to the school last year and the Rangi students were all struck by the struggle the school still faced following Cyclone Winston early last year. Amy said being able to give back is a very important part of being a global citizen. “St Andrew’s in Tonga struggles to find enough money to do what it needs to do. Many of the families are unemployed and because the school is funded from fees, this means there isn’t enough money for even the basics like books and other dayto-day needs,” she said. Popular food at the lunch included chocolate and fruit waffles, Japanese rice balls and the Thai jelly. Ploy Kriangkriwakin and classmate Ploy Laolerchai were keeping the secret recipe for their fun-shaped Thai jellies

RESTING: The group went to the high ropes course in Southshore to face their fears.

Holiday fun for youths BIG APPLE: India Borelli, originally from New York, made pretzel sticks for the international food day. ​ under wraps. “There’s coconut and, well that’s all I can say really,” said Ploy. “It’s sweet and delicious that’s for sure.” India Borelli, originally from New York, made pretzel sticks, clearly a nod to her birthplace. During International Week, $1700 was raised for St Andrew’s High School and another fundraiser is planned before the end of the year.

Merivale Mall | ChristChurCh Phone 356 2377

Year 10 student Ellie only started playing two years ago, but her selection in the team is fantastic a school spokeswoman said. The tournament gives Asian countries that are not in the World Championship programme, or that play in a lower division, a chance to compete. Other Canterbury players included in the side are Lincoln High’s Brooke Whitman, Marian College’s Millicent Smith and Shirley Boys’ High’s fill-in goalie Lilly Forbes.

SELECTED: St Andrew’s Ellie Dugdale will travel with the under-18 women national ice hockey team to Kuala Lumpur in March.

HOPEFUL: St Andrew’s have placed 15th out of 16 teams for the past two years and are looking to put in a solid performance at the tournament.

seventh and in 2015 they placed ninth. St Andrew’s have placed 15th out of 16 teams for the past two years and are looking to put in a solid performance at the tournament after qualifying second at the secondary schools South Island netball championships behind Dunedin’s St Hilda’s Collegiate.

Expertise Built On Family Heritage For Christchurch real estate agent Pip Sutton, real estate is a family heritage spanning four generations over approximately 93 years. It all started with her great-grandfather Frederick in 1924, out of Lyttelton. Her grandfather, Fred, continued working in Lyttelton, setting up an office in London Street, which still stands today. Pip’s father Dave became a partner in Simes real estate in Christchurch in the early 1970s until 2005 when it was sold for retirement purposes. From the age of just 18 months Pip became part of it, with many early memories of attending property auctions, visiting building sites and regular office visits where the auction gavel and lectern were often used as play toys. “I grew up in the business,” she says. “During school holidays I worked in Dad’s office. I spent a lot of time relieving as receptionist, in accounts and assisting putting marketing packages and the likes together, oh and lots of Sunday drives around new developments within the city and Lyttelton Harbour with the family.” On leaving school Pip gained a Bachelor of Commerce & Management degree with a marketing major. She gained valuable experience and skills working as a top sales and marketer for multi-national market leaders within New Zealand and the UK. In 2005, Pip returned to Christchurch to commence her real estate career under the guidance and wisdom of her father. “This involved long hours of intensive learning. He passed on an in-depth understanding of Christchurch’s land and

development right through from the early Lyttelton days. This included understanding district plans, zoning, the development process. How to research properties deeply to uncover potentials for new owners. How to listen to people and respond to their needs. “He passed on that little bit of magic, which had been handed down from three previous generations of learnings from great depressions, World Wars and within my career, the Global Financial Crisis and pre and post earthquake environments.” In 2014, Pip joined Ray White Real Estate, because she liked their in-depth attention to real estate law and management style at the Cashmere office, plus being a family brand itself spanning back to the early 1900s, she recognised the more caring nature of the brand, perhaps due to over 100 years of learnings being passed down too. “You are working with people during a milestone time in their life, they are often already under stress. A real estate agent’s job is to assist in relieving the stress, not adding to it.” Pip has become a successful and highly regarded real estate salesperson across the city. For her, the most enjoyable and important part of the process is to spend time with both buyers and sellers, using her in-depth knowledge of the Canterbury property environment to assist in achieving the best possible outcome for her clients. As she puts it: “My measure of success is the quality of the results I achieve for my clients, not the number of houses I sell. I would rather take more time getting my client into a better position than collecting listings and making quick sales.”

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Love your dentures Is it time to swap your generic denture appearance for a beautiful, natural looking smile? Internationally renowned dental technician Richard Greenlees, PGDipCDTech (University of Otago) of Lovebite is the person to call. His special point of difference is rebuilding what he calls the Oral Architecture, the structure and shape of a patient’s face that is often lost following years of wearing dentures. Lovebite dentures address problems that can arise due to years of the patient wearing incorrectly fitting or poorly functioning dentures, such as poor occlusion (the way the teeth come together), aesthetics, function and hygiene. An intricate knowledge and understanding of facial features allows Richard to return facial tissues back to the correct position, reform lips, and restore beauty and confidence. Richard provides a friendly, discreet service and personally guides his patients through the transformation process to create teeth with small nuances in the fabrication, colour and shape. Carmen, a recent patient said in a thank you letter to Richard, “I highly recommend your craftsmanship to anyone wanting a natural looking smile. Because

True

you do your work in front of your client, one is able to see how meticulous and dedicated you are to ending up with a top class result. My dentures are amazing. They look like one’s own natural teeth. So much time, effort and energy went into the end result. Simply the best.” Richard’s patients have varying needs, from full denture replacement, to first time immediate dentures, implant supported dentures and metal partial dentures. Since he started making teeth in 1980 Richard has travelled extensively, accumulating vast knowledge through training and working in Japan, and running his own practice in the prestigious Harley Street, London for 15 years. He continues to teach his world leading techniques globally. Richard also creates porcelain crowns and veneers, working with like-minded dental professionals. A beautiful new Lovebite smile resembles nature and reflects the patient’s character. It boosts confidence and helps patients to look and feel years younger.

Ensuring a safe Papanui work place High School As the weather gets warmer and the evenings get longer it is the ideal time to get out of the house and learn something new and meet some new people by taking part in one of the wide range of nightclasses on offer at Papanui High School for Term 4 beginning from Tuesday 24 October. From Art to Yoga and everything in between we are sure regardless of your age or interest you will find something to tempt you. Classes at Papanui High School are held in a warm, friendly relaxed environment and our tutors are supportive and well qualified in their chosen fields. A new course on offer is Creative Candle Making which will teach you to create your own soy container candles and melts, either for yourself or ideal as a gift. Discover more about soy wax, fragrance, wick selection and trouble shooting commom candle making issues. This is a hands on course where you will make 3 full sized scented candles, 6 melts, 5 tea lights and 1 votive. The cost of all materials is included in the course fee. This course is being taught by Jane Alexander and will be held at Papanui High School on Saturday 4 November between 10 am – 4 pm at a cost of $148. For further information and enrolment in this or any of our Term 4 courses

Learning first aid is not only a part of please visit our website on www.papanui. ensuring a safe work place, but also an school.nz or email rpb@papanui.school. integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the nz or telephone our office on 3520701. necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? Not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. It is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. Take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPR. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does

not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. New Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in Australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. Fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. If you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

LUTHER AND LLOYD: TWO OUTRAGEOUS HERETICS? SIX-WEEK COURSE

This year marks the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his thesis to the church in his German town of Wittenberg (October 31). An action that unexpectedly sparked the Reformation. This year also celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the heresy trial of Lloyd Geering here in Aotearoa New Zealand. An event that was most divisive for many of our churches. This course will examine the huge impact of the two men in their time, noting their significance for today. Attention will be drawn to the different theological perspectives involved.

Six-week course of 2 hour sessions held on Thursday afternoons 2pm - 4pm commencing on 19 October 2017 The course will be co-facilitated by Charles Manning and Reverend Rodney Routledge. The course will draw on the latest scholarship and will be interactive in format. VENUE: Iona House, Aranui Enrolments by 15 October by email to stgmin@gmail.com or 3812536 (please leave a message)
