„„ By Emily O’Connell A ROAD block, which is in the way of a Russian businessman’s plan to expand his Yaldhurst sporting facility, might be cleared today. Canterbury Sports Ltd director Slava Meyn, who moved to Christchurch in 2009, built the Yaldhurst Football Academy two years ago. He is now in the process of planning a bigger complex on the 20ha block of land, which would include a gymnastics indoor stadium, swimming pool, sport courts, and weights area. But the land he wants to develop is zoned Open Space Community Park under the district plan, which does not allow for buildings larger than 1000 sq m. Mr Meyn wants the zoning to be changed to Open Space Metropolitan Facilities Zone, so he can progress the development as planned. •Turn to page 6

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 5). 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

City Care has done pro bono work on it, alongside a $50,000 grant from the Ministry of Social Development. It is not yet known how long the trail will remain, because the future location of stop banks has not been decided. • Meet in the Middle will be held on Sunday, from 11am-3pm, with access from Hockey Lane.

SCHOOL SPEED CHANGES Cars may have to slow down near Aidanfield Christian School. At its meeting tonight, the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board will discuss a new variable speed limit of 40km/h on Aidanfield Drive outside the school. City council staff recommend approving the speed change, which would cost $32,000. WORKING GROUP A working group looking at the layout and future development of Scott Park in Mt Pleasant will meet tomorrow. The group was set up after Coastal Pathway Group chairman Scott Babington last month raised concerns about public access to the Scott Park foreshore near the Ferrymead Bridge. Mr Babington said the meeting would be a chance to start developing an overall masterplan for park users. DOG PARK The Ferrymead site that was once home to the failed Christchurch Maori Village could be turned into a dog park. The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has asked city council staff to prepare a report on whether the site could be used as a dog exercise area.

Memories shared as quarry building reopens „„ By Emily O’Connell THE WITHERS’ family celebrated with a crowd of about 30 people as the Singlemen’s Quarters in Halswell Quarry Park reopened on Wednesday. The building, which has been closed since the February 22, 2011, earthquake, spent a year under repair. The historic building dates back to 1922. Former city councillor Norm Withers and his family are descendants of one of the original tenants of the quarters. Mr Withers said he really enjoyed the whole day. He said being there brought back a lot of memories from his childhood, like him flying kites with his uncles. He believed all their loved ones would have been proudly looking down on them, he said.

News New animal bylaw not likely

Bid to overcome zoning snag

COMPLAINTS ABOUT a noisy pig in Linwood made it all the way to the LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board table. However, city council staff have recommended the board should not investigate the possibility of introducing a city wide bylaw to regulate farm animals in residential areas. The pig was moved out of the area before the meeting – but the board asked city council staff for advice on the “keeping of farm animals in urban areas” anyway. In their response, staff said the keeping of animals is not regulated through a bylaw or in the District Plan and they did not recommend bringing one in. “A new bylaw could help improve clarity around what is considered acceptable behaviour around the keeping of livestock but it would not enable or offer advantages in terms of enforcement options,’’ a memo said. Staff said a better alternative would be “a policy or other educational tools” to provide direction about appropriate behaviour without the same cost to the city council.

•From page 1 Because Mr Meyn’s plans do not comply, the project could be delayed by up to five years with resource and building consent processes. City council staff have been looking into how it could change the zoning to allow the expansion to go ahead. They decided the best way to do so was through the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act. Today, the city council’s regulatory performance committee will decide whether to ask staff to investigate a way of doing so through the Act, and to report back to city councillors. It would require working with Regenerate Christchurch and the department of prime minister and Cabinet. It comes just as McDonald’s has applied for resource consent to the city council to build a new restaurant and drive through opposite the sporting facility. The idea to speed up the zone-changing process has been supported by Sport Canterbury, Christchurch Netball Centre, Canterbury Basketball Association, Mainland Football, Canterbury Water Polo, Southern Districts Football Club, ChristchurchNZ, and Apollo

SPECTACULAR: The current football academy, funded mainly by Slava Meyn and built in 2015. ​

Projects – Aquatic and Sporting Facilities, who all wrote to the city council asking it to help change the zoning. Wigram MP Megan Woods and Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce chief executive Peter Townsend have also written in support of using the act to do so. Dr Woods said it has the potential to be a really good asset for western Christchurch but the

community must be involved. “I think what we absolutely have to do is make sure that we get the views of the community in the process as well,” she said. The existing football facility has two full size artificial football pitches, four artificial mini-pitches, a full-size natural turf pitch, clubroom facilities, café, administrative offices, grandstand seating for about 1000 people.

PROPOSED: A swimming complex like this is planned for the Yaldhurst facility.

Gala plans under way SPRING HAS sprung, and Heathcote Valley School is gearing up for their annual twilight gala. It’s the main fundraising event for the school and organiser Jina Russell said she’d been planning since June for a “brilliant” community get together which usually attracted around 2500 people. “I really love the atmosphere of getting it ready and everyone helping out. And just seeing kids running around having fun and families relaxing and being able to catch up.”   This was her first year running the event, which was “scary, as the previous years it has been an amazing lady called Mel. I’ve got bit shoes to fill!” The Friday night timeslot made for a “relaxed, after-work environment for families,” Ms Russell said. “It’s a great way to end the week.” The evening involves games and activities to suit all ages, live entertainment and music from school and community groups, stalls, food, raffles, chocolate wheel and bake sale. •Heathcote Valley Twilight Gala, Friday, November 3, 5-8pm.

Halswell men recognised at apprenticeship awards TWO HALSWELL men have been recognised at the Apprenticeship Training Trust graduation and awards. ATT was established in 1991 to provide trade training opportunities for New Zealanders. Its purpose is to deliver a regular stream of quality tradespeople to the construction industry. Nimo Vili graduated as a plumber gasfitter. Mr Vili is a father and has been supporting his family whilst undertaking his apprenticeship. Last year, he won the Plumbing World Prize for Excellence in

Plumbing and Gasfitting. Mr Vili said he was both proud and relieved to have graduated. He said it was nice to not be on apprentice wages anymore. Shaun McCoskery is an apprentice in training. He won the Plumbing World Award for Excellence in Plumbing and Gasfitting. ATT’s CEO, Gray Paterson said they were delighted to see these talented and hard-working young people complete their apprenticeships. “We also salute the four apprentices who have won prizes for excellence. Mid-way

through their apprenticeships, these young people are strongly committed and work to the high standards we set in our apprenticeship programme,” Mr Paterson said. Mr Vili is now working for a gas company and Mr McCoskery is continuing his apprenticeship with ATT.

Fires, rescue, man impaled with bike handle - just another week „„ By Mark Thomas - Specialist fire investigator A RECENT call to Hei Hei presented a bit of a challenge for the Sockburn crew. A child in a wheelchair was stuck in her bedroom because the door handle had broken.  She had been there for some hours before the family admitted defeat in their endeavours to

make entry. The fire crew called managed to get one of their number through a window into the room with some small tools that were sufficient to break out. Family reunited. Water reported flowing from a house in Stanmore Rd turned out to be the downfall for some indoor gardeners. 

Helpful firefighters looking inside were worried that the chemicals visible were part of a methamphetamine lab. They weren’t, but several rooms full of spiky leafed illegal plants were found by the police experts called in. A resident of Aranui was recently taken to hospital with burns to the hand.

You guessed it! Stovetop fire. Every week the same! Spreydon’s fire crew had the unpleasant job of removing a bicycle brake handle from a bike last Tuesday. That bit sounds easy. But the handle was impaled through the rider’s hand at the time.

The delicate use of a serious pair of bolt cutters allowed the patient to be taken to hospital for expert surgery to remove the handle from hand. Finally, someone in Aranui was cold on Wednesday night. They opened the boarded up fireplace and lit a fire. It was boarded for a reason. No flue, no chimney!

Ruthlessness recognised „„ By Andrew King CASHMERE HIGH footballer Eddie Wilkinson is known as a gentleman off the pitch and a ruthless competitor on it. His fierceness on the field has seen him named in the national under-19 team to travel to the United States in April. “I play my best out there. There are no friends on the field,” he said. Cashmere coach Craig Squire said he is a very talented player and an absolute gentleman off the pitch. “He is one of the most polite, respectful people I have had the pleasure of teaching in the past 15 years,” he said. “He will do great things in the sport.” The 17-year-old had a great season for Cashmere High’s first XI, which placed 14th at the national tournament in Napier last month. Wilkinson was named Cashmere’s most valuable player for the tournament. He also played for FCTwenty11 this year after competing for Halswell United since age 9. He is looking forward to playing overseas, saying it was a great way to get noticed. “I want to get into a college over there and play football professionally, or at least get it

HILLMORTON High’s basketball team were a minute away from winning their first national title. After cruising through pool play and the semis undefeated, the boys team, which came last at the 2016 Schick championships secondary schools nationals, narrowly lost to Taranaki’s Stratford High 7772 in the final on Thursday. Canterbury Ram’s co-captain and coach Marques Whippy said the team was down by 35 heading into the final quarter but came roaring back to lose by only five. “Another minute, we would have won,” he said. “[We] took a couple of quarters to settle before coming right.” The side competed in the ‘A’ grade, a level below the top ‘AA’ grade played at nationals.

Ihaia Kendrew top-scored for his team in the final with 30 points. Kendrew and teammate Joshua Nickel were named in the tournament side. Hillmorton beat Oamaru’s St Kevin’s College 76-51, Otaki College 123-89, Catholic Cathedral College 96-60 and Te Aroha College 83-65 in pool play at the Central Energy Trust Arena in Palmerston North. They faced Hamilton’s Nga Taiatea Wharekura in the semifinal and beat them 74-62. Hillmorton only lost three games during the season. They also took out the schools competition and the South Island tournament. Whippy said he was really proud of the team and what they achieved. Hillmorton’s girls side came eighth in the ‘A’ competition.

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. To learn more and to view a gallery of stunning Lovebite dentures, visit lovebite.com.

could look this natural?

These stunning lovebite full upper and lower dentures have been expertly crafted by internationally-recognised dental technician Richard Greenlees at his Christchurch studio. The combination of Richard’s skill, experience (including 15 years in London’s prestigious Harley Street) knowledge and revolutionary techniques allow him to create beautiful bespoke false teeth that truly resemble those in nature and reflect each patient’s individuality and unique character.

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.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

[Edition10datE] Tuesday October 2017

Risingholme Community Centre Term 3 Term 4 sees us continuing to offer a range of classes across the city at Risingholme Community Centre, Riccarton High School, Shirley Boys High School, Christchurch Girls High School and Hornby High School, many of which have become a tradition of Risingholme Community Centre programme. So what better way to prepare for summer than to get out and learn something new by enrolling in a course of interest – maybe something that you have tried before and want to explore further or perhaps you would like to try something new, or to meet new people with similar interests. It has been proven that Lifelong Learning has many benefits with the obvious ones being the continuation of a learning journey, learning a new skill, increased confidence, meeting new people and much more. Our full range of classes can be viewed on our website www.risingholme. org.nz Are you Digitally challenged in our ever changing digital world? Or if you are not familiar with using a computer, we offer classes on Computer Basics or maybe something more advanced such as Word, Excel or Photoshop. If you would like to know more about these or other

classes that we are running, we would love to hear from, you can enrol via our website www.risingholme.org. nz or phone the Risingholme office 332 7359. New and exciting at Risingholme Community Centre is Zentangle. What is this you might say - well if you can’t sit still enough for yoga, or your mind wanders in meditation, or you would like a creative aspect to your mindfulness, this may work for you. This method of drawing does not require any previous drawing ability, it can be a 15 minute practice you can build into your everyday, or you can explore some of the more creative ways you can then use this design practise to make your own cards, images, or decorate products. This class will teach you a variety of ‘tangles’ and get you started on your Zentangle path in a supportive and creative atmosphere, and you can build it at a pace that suits you, within your time constraints or desire as you move through the term. If you would like to know more about these classes or others on our website www.risingholme.org.nz please call the office 03 332 7359

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Fast turnaround for minor panel repairs As we all know, having our car off the road for minor panel repairs can be frustrating, but for customers of SMART Repairs in Lichfield Street, it isn’t a problem. “With our focus on fast turnaround, getting customers back on the road as quickly as possible is the way we do business,” says owner Brian Caffell, who runs the long-established panel shop with his wife Maxine. In addition, customers have the benefit of a courtesy car, so they can stay on the road while their vehicle is in the workshop. There is also a free pick-up and delivery service available if required. Customers can be assured of topquality workmanship at SMART Repairs, with the workshop team having over 40 years’ industry experience between them, with services including panelbeating, spraypainting, paintless dent removal, (PDR) and mag wheel repairs and painting. As specialists in small to medium panel repair work, no job is too small for SMART Repairs, and with their friendly,

personal approach they make it easy for customers who may be unsure what to do if their vehicle has been scratched or dented. The team also provides quotes for all insurance companies, and carry out those repairs quickly and efficiently. “We take pride in our work and ensure that our customers are happy with the results,” says Maxine. SMART Repairs are currently looking at expanding and incorporating a mobile division, so they can come to you for minor paint and interior trim repairs, PDR and mag wheel repairs. SMART Repairs is located at 272 Lichfield Street, at the Fitzgerald Avenue end. Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 8am-4.30pm. To enquire about repairs to your vehicle, please call in, or phone 377-0409.
