„„ 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 5

Inside

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK 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

Action on quarry dust sought

„„ Emily O’Connell A YALDHURST resident says dust pollution from nearby quarries is only getting worse. It follows discussions by the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood and Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton community boards about setting-up a joint working party to combat the problem. Yaldhurst resident Anna Youngman said reporting the problem to Environment Canterbury had fallen on deaf ears. But ECan regional leader compliance delivery James Tricker said it is working with the city council and Canterbury District Health Board to respond to concerns about the health effects. He said its officers had been regularly monitoring for visible dust and truck movements to ensure the agreed “no dust beyond the quarries” rule is upheld. Mr Tricker said ECan had set up a specific email address for residents to contact it, in addition to the pollution hotline on 0800 765 588. The hotline had six dustrelated complaints last month. Mr Tricker ​said ECan is also establishing a comprehensive long-term air quality monitoring

programme and recently contracted an independent laboratory to undertake personal monitoring of eight residents in the Yaldhurst area. The monitoring required participants to wear two small pumps for eight hours within their homes, which drew air up through two separate filters. “We’ve passed the results of the personal monitoring on to the CDHB and the appropriate health professionals to review

this information,” Mr Tricker said. He said the CDHB will contact residents to explain what the results mean and once the residents have been advised, the overall results will become publicly available. Mrs Youngman did not take part in the personal monitoring. “We’re having difficulty breathing for goodness sake,” Mrs Youngman said. She said the Halswell-HornbyRiccarton Community Board chairman Mike Mora has been

very helpful. Mr Mora said the dust must be brought under control. He said if they set-up a working party, it would collaborate with ECan and the CDHB to try and get some co-ordinated action. “It seems to me, that the two community boards and the residents will have to lead that process, nobody wants to take up the mantle,” Mr Mora said.

Your Local Views Feel energised by riding a bike Halswell Community Project chairwoman Chrys Horn talks about the benefits of riding a bicycle about town rather than driving Anyone who knows me well knows that I ride a bike to get around. Some people see this as slightly mad, but  I do really prefer using my bike rather than my car. Driving a car is slow. No, really, it is. I feel sorry for people stuck in traffic as I cycle past along the bike lane. Mostly, I can get past road works more easily by walking the bike down the footpath which has been useful in postearthquake Christchurch. I save even more time by getting  exercise when I travel. I don’t have to make time to go to the gym, or go for a run. Usually, I can park close to the door of the place I want to go.  It is nice to arrive energised, warmed up and ready to go. If you believe the research, I’m probably more productive than my car-driving colleagues because I get that exercise twice

READY TO ROCK: Avonhead’s Hannah Proctor, 22, models a dress she will wear in Art Couture NZ’s wearable arts competition to be held in Tai Tapu on Thursday. She will walk the runway to the song Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars. Miss Proctor’s musicallythemed dress is designed by one of the fashion show’s organisers Kim Strange (pictured). Miss Proctor, who has Down’s syndrome, said she is excited about the show and is looking forward to modelling for her mother and grandmother in the audience. While Hannah has never modelled before, she is in a dance group called Jolt. Hannah works at a pre-school and likes to go to the gym. The fashion show will be held at The Vineyard at Rossendale, 100 Old Tai Tapu Rd. Tickets can be purchased at http://www. dashtickets.co.nz PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

each day. On top of that, I’m likely to have fewer sick days than those who habitually travel by car. I have more fun when I bike. I’m enjoying the blossoms on the trees these days, for example. Biking through parks and along quieter back streets is lovely and it is great to explore new short cuts. It is more sociable on a bike; people wave or say hello and it is easy to stop and talk when you see a friend. I save money. It is surprising how much – on petrol, parking, car running costs, gym fees and on medical bills. I save you money too on road maintenance, building car parks, health costs and I leave the road space and public parks free for you as well. How about having a go? Check out our new cycle paths, check out quiet streets, find the tracks through parks and have some fun yourself.

Bid to overcome zoning snag •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.

Call for lower speed limits „„ By Emily O’Connell MOTORISTS ARE travelling on average up to 80km/h on some Templeton roads which have a 50km/h limit and residents want something done about it. The Templeton Residents’ Association is making a submission in support of a district council bylaw which would see speed limits lowered about Selwyn. Under the district council’s speed limits bylaw 2016, speed limits can be changed way of district council resolution. Templeton Residents’ Association chairman Gary Kilday said the speed some people drive about the area is just an accident waiting to happen. The residents’ association is wanting speed limits changed on roads leading into Templeton as well as roads such as Maddisons, Dawsons and Jones lowered to 80km/h. Most of the roads fall under the Selwyn district council but some are the responsibility of the city council. The residents’ association is hoping if the district council change the speed limits, the city council will follow suit.

Restricted parking plan could impact on university students „„ By Emily O’Connell STREETS NEAR Canterbury University may soon have restricted parking. The city council is considering putting restrictions on streets from Straven Rd right out to Avonhead Rd. About a year ago the city council decided to have an overview of any additional parking restrictions due to the amount of calls they received from residents’. Residents’ struggle to find parking for guests on their streets because university students and staff leave their cars there. The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton and Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood community boards had a workshop last week where they discussed the issue. Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton said the standard parking resolution is to place restrictions on one side of the street. Mrs Broughton said the parking restrictions tend to solve the problem for residents’ but you get the issue of ‘where do these other cars go?’

She said parking at the university is too expensive for students. An all-year student parking permit is $350 for 2017 and $400 for 2018. A Canterbury University spokeswoman said: “The city council determines suburban parking policy and all parking requirements on the university campuses. Decisions about oncampus parking charges are made by the university council.” The spokeswoman said the university encourages more sustainable travel including cycling, car pooling, walking or busing. Vice-chancellor Dr Rod Carr wrote a submission to the city council’s Review of Suburban Car Parking Policy recommending the implementation of a residents’ parking scheme. A city council spokeswoman said feedback was sought to help develop the policy but because the policy’s currently on hold, any feedback is not yet public. “I’m quite strong on putting on parking restrictions as long as residents’ want them,” Mrs Broughton said. The issue will be going out for public consultation next month.

Quarry building reopened Fate of Yaldhurst „„ 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 undergoing repairs. 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 and he believed all their loved ones would have been HISTORIC: Former city councillor Norm Withers inside the singlemen’s quarters at Halswell Quarry Park.

hall still uncertain

„„ By Emily O’Connell THE FATE of the Yaldhurst Memorial Hall is still uncertain. The Pound Rd hall was built in 1954 to house war memorial plaques. In May, the Halswell-HornbyRiccarton Community Board decided to recommend to the city council that the plaques be removed and the earthquakedamaged building be demolished. One month later, the community board then made a U-turn on its recommendation and asked for more consultation to be carried out. The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton and the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Boards had a workshop last week where they discussed the issue. Community board chairman Mike Mora said in an ideal world they would love to fix the hall, but due to its $1.2 million price tag, its just not possible. He said it will cost about $500,000 to demolish the hall and its a bit of a grey area as to who is responsible for paying for it. “I’m really trying to put a plan

He said they still have to make the decision on whether the hall will stay but there’s no money in the budget for it. Christchurch Memorial Returned and Services Association Incorporated executive member Craig Cormack said the community should decide what happens to the hall but he would like the plaques to be on display during the centenary celebrations next year. Mr Mora said if the hall is demolished and the land is sold, he would want the money to be dispersed throughout the Yaldhurst rural community.

School bus driver wins gardening award „„ By Emily O’Connell SCHOOL BUS driver by day, gardener by night - semi-retired Geoff Teehan’s hobby has won him first place in a spring gardening competition. Mr Teehan won first in the Christchurch Beautifying Association’s Gray Trophy at its spring garden awards last weekend. He decided to enter the competition, for the first time, after seeing it advertised in The Star newspaper. Mr Teehan said he was shocked with the result. He said when he moved into the property a few years ago, he received advise from his nephew, who works as a landscape architect, as to what plants would be a low maintenance option. Mr Teehan said he gets self satisfaction from gardening and finds it therapeutic. He’s not sure whether he will enter another gardening competition. “Well I might enter the Summer one, I don’t know, I haven’t given it much thought to be honest,” Mr Teehan said.

Hornby High School Years 7 – 13

Growing, learning, succeeding Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta. Haere mai ki Te Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to the Hornby High School community. We are extraordinarily proud of the amazing students that we work with at Hornby High School. As time goes by their sense of self belief grows, and with it their achievements accumulate. Over the past two terms Hornby High School and our students have: • Won the city’s junior league title • Won basketball grades at Years 7/8, and 9/10 • Gained recognition from outstanding achievement in drama at a festival of performance • Performed creditably at national tournaments • Raised money for a number of charities • Showcased wonderful musical talent that is as good as anything you’ll see in schools • Gained recognition in creativity and innovation in technology • Had individuals gain titles in gymnastics And if that’s not enough, most importantly of all, lots of students have already gained their NCEA at each of the three levels, before a single external examination has been sat. This is a testimony to their commitment and dedication. We work hard to build and sustain our school values of Commitment, Achievement, Resilience and Respect, and none of the achievement we see would be possible unless students develop their sense of commitment, the resilience to get up when they fall down, and respect for themselves and those around them. And all success ultimately requires a growth mindset, best characterised by a single word – “yet”. So rather than saying “I can’t do this”, we encourage our students to say “I can’t do this yet”. We encourage them to give themselves permission to learn and improve. Having a growth mindset means that you acknowledge that intelligence and capability aren’t fixed quantities. Regardless of genetics, or economic status, or race or culture, we all have the capacity to learn new things, to improve. Our intelligence isn’t some fixed quantity that we are born with. These HHS achievements are just the tip of the iceberg. Our students’ potential as individuals, and as a school, knows no bounds. It will be what they choose it to be. They will be whatever they choose to be. We encourage them to be their best, not to settle for anything less. And as I have said before, in the middle of all this we are rebuilding almost the whole school. Concrete has been poured; steel framing is starting to rise above the ground. These are exciting times to be at Hornby High School. Ko te pae tawhiti. Whāia kia ata; ko to ape Tata, whakamaua kia tina

Chloe will attend the Mini-Mod Global Games, Under 13’s Rugby League Tournament, as the only South Island, the only female ref and also the youngest referee attending.

Congratulations to Hornby High School’s Japanese teacher Mr Nick Williams, pictured above, who has been selected to participate in the 2017 Fukushima Kizuna Revitalization Programme. The programme invites NZ teachers of Japanese to visit Fukushima in order to promote cultural exchange and increase mutual understanding between the people of NZ and Fukushima. Nick is visiting Fukushima at the moment – from October 3 to 12.

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.

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.
