Aranui car yard will give profits to good cause „„ By Sophie Cornish BUY A vehicle at a new car yard in Aranui and you will be helping sport and youth in the area. Gateway Motor Company opens on the corner of Pages and Breezes Rds in five weeks and profits from sales go direct to where it is needed most – the community. The car yard will be run by the Celebration organisation, which has purchased the site once occupied by New World supermarket. The site has been vacant for about six years. Celebration spokesman Corey Watkinson said the site has been vacant for too long. “It’s not a good look for the east side of Christchurch to have so many vacant empty buildings that are left for years and years,” he said. “The gardens weren’t maintained, nothing was maintained, (there was) tagging on the walls, all the glass had been smashed out, vandalism, fires on site.” •Turn to page 4

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THAT’S A great new initiative in Aranui on our front page today – a car yard that gives back to the community. Celebration, that burgeoning church-based organisation in the east, has purchased the site on the corner of Breezes and Pages Rd. It was once a New World, had Trust Bank there, for those who can remember Westpac’s forerunner, and a few other things over the years. It is a prime site but until now no one has wanted to develop it, so Celebration has stepped in. Vehicles, by the sound of it, will be sold fairly cheaply and profits, Celebration says, will go into local youth and sport. That’s a damn fine idea so all power to Celebration if that is how it all pans out. – Barry Clarke

The work to construct the trail is coinciding with the city council’s upgrade of temporary stopbanks next to the river. 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 stopbanks has not been decided. • Meet in the Middle will be held on Sunday, from 11am-3pm, with access from Hockey Lane.

News Historic Team NZ shirt up for grabs „„ By Sophie Cornish

New car yard to help community •From page 1 Vehicle prices at Gateway will range up to $10,000. Discussions are currently under way with several parties about leasing the property, including with the Department of Corrections about a community corrections office being there. Mr Watkinson said the purpose of purchasing the site was to enhance the area. “For us, it was really about making a positive contribution to the area and actually putting it back into some productive use. There hasn’t been much done on the east of Christchurch as far as rebuilding and bringing business initiatives back into the space, so that’s why we’ve chosen that site,” he said. Department of Corrections district manager Lisa Joseph said its previous site was red zoned after the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

AN ORIGINAL Team New Zealand shirt from the historic 1995 America’s Cup win is up for auction to raise money for the rebuild of Pleasant Point Yacht Club. It is one of 1000 limited edition shirts with a certificate of authenticity signed by Sir Peter Blake and Sir Russell Coutts who headed the 1995 campaign. The auction is one of many items on the website GalaBid, raising money for the rebuild of Pleasant Point Yacht Club’s clubrooms in South New Brighton Park. The club lost all it’s facilities in the earthquakes. The auction is now under way until noon on Saturday. Team New Zealand will be hosted by the yacht club at an event on Saturday, where the auctioning of GalaBid items will continue. Other items up for grabs include several seats on a helicopter ride piloted by Richie McCaw to a mystery location, a horse power experience in a dual sulky behind Monkey King, New Zealand’s top harness racer, and a hot laps session at Mike Pero Motorsport Park in a V8 Supercar driven by

Greg Murphy. Club spokesman Nigel Humphreys is very happy with the auction items and said there is a constant stream of ticket sales for the event, which will take place at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand.

“The special auction items have all been donated by businesses and individuals keen to help the club realise its dream to rebuild in the South New Brighton Park,” said Mr Humphreys. Those who are not attend-

ing the event but still wish to continue bidding on the items should contact club commodore Alastair Burgess.

Trees set to get the chop Call for action

after assault at library

„„ By Sophie Cornish

OVERSIZED TREES will be removed from Westhaven streets. The Coastal-Burwood Community Board has voted to remove 168 over-sized trees causing issues for Westhaven residents. A replacement strategy will be put in place following consultation with residents. The tree roots are causing damage to infrastructure including footpaths, kerbs, vehicle crossings, driveways, walls, fences and letterboxes, causing public safety issues. The majority of the trees within the Westhaven area were planted in 1998 and 50 per cent of those trees are now considered to be in poor condition. There are 24 streets involved which have the plane, elm, birch and liriodendron trees. Some 35 trees will not be able to be replaced due to spacing constraints. Acting community board chairman Tim Sintes said the trees will come down and the board will consider several options for their removal, including a staggered approach. Removing the trees in summer and replacing them in winter

RUPTURED FOOTPATH: Cracks in the footpaths from the tree roots are causing health and safety concerns.

is one option being considered, which would mean the cost would be split over two financial years. City councillor Glenn Livingstone agreed that this was important. “We need to go at the pace of the community. It’s really important that we take the community with us if we are going to go through with the wholesale destruction of the trees,” said Cr Livingstone. Flyers may be distributed in

the area soon and residents will be able to provide feedback. Species being considered for the replacement include nyssa sylvatica, acer rubrum and magnolia grandiflora. The entire operation, including replacing the trees and repairing damage, will cost about $228,000. Alternatives to removing the trees, including installing root barriers or fixing the damage, were found not to be realistic long-term options.

NATIONAL LIST MP Jo Hayes wants action to stop anti-social and intimidating behaviour in the New Brighton Library foyer. The call comes after a Salt on the Pier staff member was assaulted in the lobby last month by a group of youths, after asking them to move on. The victim was held down by one youth and punched in the face by two others. His cellphone was also stolen. Mrs Hayes, who has experienced the intimidating behaviour in the lobby before, made a presentation to the Coastal-Burwood Community Board last week about ways to solve the issue. The library foyer is a congregation point for youths who use the free wi-fi provided by the library 24 hours a day. The upstairs restaurant part

of Salt on the Pier is accessed via the foyer area. Youths often sit and watch people walking by, said Mrs Hayes, who has witnessed them following people in attempt to intimate and annoy them. Shutting off the free wi-fi at night as well as a buzzer system for Salt on the Pier restaurant patrons are what Mrs Hayes has suggested as a solution. “These are things they can actually do rather cheaply,” said Mrs Hayes. The buzzer system would mean that only Salt on the Pier employees would be able to open the lobby doors from inside the restaurant. Vandalism, including the tagging and smashing of notice boards, has also occurred previously in the lobby. The community board agreed to pass the matter on to the city council to investigate possible solutions.

PERFORMING: Class Disruption during the Rockshop Bandquest regional finals.

Young musicians take rock title BEACH ART: Members of Step Ahead have artwork on display at Linwood’s Eastside Gallery.

Art exhibition raises mental health awareness „„ By Sophie Cornish MENTAL HEALTH organisation Step Ahead is demonstrating the benefits of artwork for improving mental stability. The Eastside Gallery in Linwood is currently hosting an art exhibition containing 100 pieces made by about from Step Ahead. The annual exhibition runs until Friday. It coincides with mental health awareness week, The exhibition has a diverse range artwork including mix media photography, stone carving, mosaic and craft including wood turning. Seventeen pieces were sold in the first two days. The not-for-profit organisation provides programmes that offer social, educational and recreational activities for adults aged

18-65 years with mental illness. Said Step Ahead Operations Manager Di Cockburn: “It provides an opportunity not readily available for members to showcase their talents to the wider community and sell some work. “Basically it provides a goal to work towards and an opportunity to recognise and celebrate skill and achievement.” Ms Cockburn believes the benefits are enormous and members are given a sense of pride, self worth and achievement. Art is a big part of Step Ahead’s programme and several art groups meet every week. Other activities the organisation offers are health and fitness related such as cooking, sport, walks and tramping and social and life skills such as employment, technology and educational support.

•From page 1 Orange Studios is located in Woolston and is one of the more well known studios in the South Island. The band is made up of Dylan Jonkers (vocals, songwriting and bass), Sho Woodhouse (drums), Hiromu Crosado (keyboard) and Jacob Carey (guitar). Hiromu also won the national award for best keyboardist. During the regional heats, the band performed a cover of Rush’s Tom Sawyer, and an original written by Dylan called Take It Away, a song about having

confidence in yourself and not giving up. The band was then required to submit a six-minute video to be judged alongside all of the other regional winners. Learning the piano at age four was just the start for 13-year-old Dylan, who can also play bass, guitar, trombone and drums. He has written 12 songs for the band, which they hope to make into an album later this year. Auditions were held at the start of the year for new members (Jacob and Hiromu) to join the year 8s Dylan and Sho who needed to

replace two members who went on to high school. Jacob came up for the idea of naming the band Class Disruption which the band says has no reflection of their classroom behaviour. Music programme co-ordinator Judith Bell said the band has started a Google document to brainstorm ways the $3000 prize money can be spent. Dylan hopes they will be able to get more cymbals for the drum kit and an instrument called a theremin, an electronic device which can create sound effects.

Fires, rescues - 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!

Adopt Me! The ideal pet, no feeding, no vet bills and no dirt box!!

Skater off to world champs „„ By Sophie Cornish SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School’s Ethan De Rose is off to the junior world championships for short track speed skating. The 15-year-old will represent New Zealand in Poland in March 2018. It will be the second time he has competed for the team, also competing in Austria in January this year. He will travel to Latvia where he will train before heading to Poland to compete in the 500m, 1000m and 1500m distances. Ethan said he “did alright” at his first world championships, however, was a young competitor in the single grade event, competing against athletes as old as 19. He trains three days a week on the ice, three days in the gym and runs on Sundays. Ethan began speed skating when he was four after getting a voucher for a free trial. Coach Mark Jackson said Ethan’s natural talent was obvious from a young age. Mr Jackson has known Ethan as an athlete since he was five years old. He hopes Ethan will finish in the top 20 at the world championships and the following year will aim for top 10.

DEMOLITION: The Bexley Park gymnasium came down in 2012 after being red-zoned following the earthquakes.

Permanent home for football club sought

ENDURANCE: Ethan De Rose competing in Melbourne at the Australian national championships in 2015.

In spite of being too young to qualify for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, Mr Jackson hopes to train Ethan for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. “If he trains really well and shows the same kind of commitment and talent that he’s got now, he will have a good chance for the team then.” Their current training has focused on building Ethan a strong

endurance base. “He’s got to have a good base behind him to go into an international programme elsewhere,” he said. Mr Jackson really enjoys coaching the athlete. “He has amazing concentration . . . he’s one of those guys who’s always wanting to learn, he’s asking me more than I’m telling him, not many kids at his age are like that,” he said.

THE COASTAL Spirit Football Club is looking for a permanent home. The club is currently located at Cuthberts Green on Pages Rd along with the Canterbury Softball Association. This location is one of two options being considers for the permanent home base, which would be redeveloped alongside the softball association. Club chairman Darren Johnson spoke to the CoastalBurwood Community Board last week about the possibility of having a football club at the new QEII site. “We proposed to the community board to ask questions about whether they would entertain the idea of a football base there and what sort of facilities could possibly go in,” said Mr Johnson. Mr Johnson is now waiting to hear back.

He hopes funding will come from city council and various trusts. If there is a possibility to use of the QEII site, this could take between two to five years said Mr Johnson. If the club decides to redevelop it’s current base, this would only take approximately two years. Previously, the club’s home base in Bexley had a gymnasium and five football pitches with flood lighting.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
