Trees given a reprieve by court Work on Northern Corridor delayed „„ By Julia Evans NORTHERN Corridor work is on hold after a court order was taped to trees on Cranford St. Last Monday, Small World Preschool and Nursery owners Keith and Sue Wayman attached the Environment Court ruling from Fletcher Building Ltd against the city council to two trees that were about to be cut down. They also taped on a sign that read: “This tree is protected by a court order.” “We laminated the court order to the trees and the workers took off like scolded cats,” Mr Wayman said. He said the trees, which were supposed to be removed as part of the Northern Corridor upgrade, were still there yesterday. Treetech was contracted to remove the trees by the city council. It would not comment on the matter. Mr Wayman said it was not Treetech’s fault as it was only doing the work of the city council and the New Zealand Transport Agency, which he would lodge

fuss for them to take us seriously,” he said. The design includes cycle lanes that take away all on-street parking, which Mr Wayman said would put them out of business. “The judge made the designs very clear . . . and we’re not asking

for any more than what the judge is ruling,” Mr Wayman said. The city council is expected to release its final designs for the Northern Corridor this week. The city council did not respond to questions from Nor’West News.

Getting into the spirit for City2Surf

CHRISTMAS MIGHT be right on the radar but there’s another big event looming too – the City2Surf. Yep, it’s only a handful of months away (see page 4) so it’s time to start lacing up those running shoes and pounding the pavement or local park to get in some sort of shape. The great thing about the City2Surf – and this hasn’t changed over the decades – is that anyone regardless of shape or fitness level can take part. A face that will appear on the marketing of City2Surf this year is Jesel Royokada, a Fijian pastor. And remember it’s a family event – children 10 and under are free to participate.

Pastor Jesel Royokada has asked his congregation of about 80 to get involved in next year’s Star Media City2Surf.

News Native bush plan mooted „„ By Julia Evans MORE THAN 150 years after its last tree was chopped down, Papanui Bush may be reinstated. The Papanui-Innes Community Board is looking to regenerate the forest that took up 36ha between what is now Papanui High School and Vagues Rd in 1850. The modern native forest plan is proposed for Bridgestone Reserve on Mike Davidson Langdons Rd. It would make it only the second in the city alongside Riccarton Bush. City councillor Mike Davidson said he is pushing for the project to create a native bush in his ward that the community can be proud of. “If we can reclaim a bit of history in Papanui, that would be a really good thing . . . but it’s got to be done properly,” he said. It will be a huge recreational attraction for the community, which would be involved in the planting of the bush, as well as providing habitats for native bird and encourage growth in

population, Cr Davidson said. It was one most significant landmarks the settlers saw as they walked over the Port Hills to establish Christchurch but the land was divided in a ballot and the trees were felled. According to a paper by the Papanui Heritage Group the bush was made of totara, rimu, kahikatea and matai. The last totara tree was cut down in 1861,

years after the rest of the bush was gone. Bridgestone Reserve is a bit smaller than Cr Davidson was hoping for. But he said he could work with it. A city council feasibility report will come back from staff later in the week so the board can work on submitting a proposal for the Long Term Plan. Cr Davidson said it would only need a start up capital of

TREE REMOVAL Fifty-five eucalyptus and pine trees will be removed from Belfast’s Styx Mill Conservation Reserve to enable planting of native trees. Following the removal of the trees, the area will be replanted with1200 native trees and shrubs including 60 totara and matai. A number of the existing pine trees will be retained to provide habitats for cavitynesting native birds. FLORAL THEFTS The Friends of Abberley Park group has taken to posting pictures of the plants whose flowers have been cut and removed from the park on its Facebook page to shame the “vandals” that do it. The most recent incident saw a peony rose bush lose more than 35 flowers and another lose 12. “Shame on these thieving vandals,” the Facebook post said. SAFETY IMPROVED A $76,000 pedestrian island is being put in near Cotswold School on Gardiners Rd and Fairford St to increase safety after calls from the community. The location will provide a safe crossing point for all pedestrians, although a city council pedestrian survey found the majority of pedestrians crossing were Cotswold pupils.

Last year he was photographed leaping into the air after crossing the line capturing the spirit of the event. Now, the Christchurch Fijian Seventh-Day Adventist Church pastor has asked his congregation of about 80 to get involved in the event as a way to connect with other cultures. “We come from the islands and sometimes we do things in our own island groups but it is good to get involved with the rest of

the community,” he said. The 31-year-old encouraged about 25 of his parishioners to get involved in the event last year “It was the first time our church has got involved with something like this,” he said. He said they were told about the event by Healthy Families Christchurch, part of a nationwide Government initiative a​ imed at helping New Zealanders live healthy, active lives. “I would like to see all 80 of them out there, and their friends and families. We can even have kids in prams at the event,” he said.

„„ By Julia Evans CONCERNS HAVE been raised over publicity of a cycling initiative at Jellie Park Sports and Recreation Centre. Staff at the centre not knowing about the initiative at all, and a lack of advertising, has prompted the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board to ask city council staff investigate urgently. The campaign to get less people driving to Jellie Park in a bid to clear the congested car park means if you cycle five times, you receive free pool entry and a bottle of water. The initiative was first run in February with only a “small to moderate uptake,” city council western area operations manager Martin McGregor said. It was recommended the programme be dropped. But a second campagin, running from now through summer, was called for by the board as it said a longer trial was necessary for a greater uptake. As well as being in warmer months when more people are likely to cycle. It was previously suggested that the scheme would be rolled out across all city council sport and recreation centres.

Chance to reconnect with school before demolition

„„ By Julia Evans FORMER BISHOPDALE School pupils have been invited to visit one last time. The school’s 60-year-old buildings are being demolished during the school holidays as work begins on the $4.38 million rebuild. Principal Sue Fisher said anyone who wants to go back, take photos and visit the classrooms is more than welcome. “People from Bishopdale seem to live in this area forever,” she said. She said there is a huge community connection in the suburb, especially as its going through a regeneration with the new library and redevelopment of the mall. Demolishing the first block will begin in January, with the new building beginning construction in March and the rebuild expected to finish late next year. “They [the Ministry of Education] want to have it done in the holidays because it’s not desirable to have children and asbestos in the same space,” Mrs Fisher said. Anyone who wants to go through the school has until December 15. Phone the school on 352 9354 to arrange a time.

Further success for school film RIDING ITS recent wave of success, the film A Perfect Child has brought home two more awards for its St Margaret’s and Christ’s College producers. The 18min short film, written and produced by St Margaret’s and Christ’s College students Nina Hogg and Simon Brown won Best New Zealand Film and Best Secondary School Film awards at the Uni Shorts Film Festival at the end of November. This year’s line-up saw 36 finalists from New Zealand, the United States, Israel, Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands across six categories with the winners being named at the opening night of the festival at Unitec in Auckland. The judging panel included award-winning filmmaker Alyx Duncan, renowned actress, writer and director Aidee Walker and internationally acclaimed animator Katie Naeher. They praised the film for its strong premise and depth of talent.

School zone not likely to expand

Mayor defends funding cuts

„„ By Julia Evans CHILDREN LIVING less than 2km from Redwood primary are not guaranteed entry to the school. And the Ministry of Education has vetoed a call from the school to change that. Principal John Stackhouse said in the process of the Prestons Rd school’s $4.9 million rebuild, the ministry rejected a request for an expansion to the Katrina enrolment zone. Casey It also wants the roll to be cut by about 40 pupils. Without an increase to the tight admission zone, Mr Stackhouse said children who live less than a 90sec car ride away from the school are not guaranteed a place. They have to go through the ballot system, which does not take proximity to the school into consideration. “We actually have the smallest zone in the city,” he said, which is encased in a few blocks around Daniels Rd, Main North Rd, Prestons Rd and Willowview Drive. Said board of trustees chair-

„„ By Julia Evans MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel has defended the decision to slash Papanui-Innes Community Board’s funding. Ms Dalziel wrote a letter to the community board, which explained the city council’s decision to cut the board’s funding from $402,860 for the 2017/18 by about $85,000. Ms Dalziel said the process which the city council used to allocate the funding was an improvement on the previous process, which had “a lack of clear rationale” and was “ad hoc.” “While this process worked well for some boards, others received disproportionately less funding,” the letter said. Ms Dalziel said the new process is based on measurable data, is transparent and less costly to administer. It uses population data as well as the social deprivation index. But she said although the social deprivation index has its “limitations” it is still the best tool available. Ms Dalziel wrote that she encouraged the board’s working together across the board boundaries to support organisations.

woman Ana Connor: “It doesn’t feel right to turn local children away.” Mrs Connor said the school has had several meetings with the ministry and informal meetings with other schools in the area. Ministry of Education deputy secretary sector enablement and support Katrina Casey said it appreciates the challenge Redwood is facing but there is a challenge catering to roll growth and decline across the city. “Any expansion of the Redwood zone to the west or south

will result in the school being less able to cater for projected growth in the Redwood School catchment. This would impact negatively on neighbouring schools,” Ms Casey said. But she said the ministry is happy to meet the board of trustees again and discuss the issues. Mr Stackhouse said the school and board would keep trying to change the ministry’s mind. The complications have been caused by the February 22, 2011, earthquake, he said. “After the quakes, we had a

The rebuild of the school is currently in the early planning stage, with work expected to begin at the end of next year and finished in 2019. “The initial plans have gone back to the ministry to have initial costing, then detailed planning will commence term 1 next year,” he said.

Student musician picked for band „„ By Julia Evans RANGI RURU Girls’ student Rebecca Harris has been picked for a national band which also features semi-professional musicians. The year 12 student was named in the New Zealand Youth Symphonic Winds band for the second year running. Positions in this group are highly sought after by young musicians up to the age of 25. Many are studying at tertiary level or are playing in a semi-professional

environment. Rebecca, who is also a member of the All Girl Big Band and the A-Grade Canterbury Brass Band, will meet with other members of the Symphonic Winds in January and July for intensive rehearsals, workshops and performances.

Boat named after principal A LASTING homage to retiring St Margaret’s College principal Gillian Simpson has been unveiled.

Important theme in school production SAVING THE world’s endangered animals was the theme of the annual St Margaret’s College junior school production. Written by the school’s performing art’s department, Museum Alive involved all pupils from years 1-6. The production was set in the year 2067 where a group of chil-

dren take a trip to the museum and get sent back to 2017. They meet some endangered animals who, through song and dance, say what is threatening their survival. The children are motivated to want to try and change the course of history and save the animals from extinction. PHOTO: PETRA MINGNEAU

The St Margaret’s College Rowing Club celebrated the naming and blessing of its new eight, which was kept a secret from Ms Simpson. The boat is to honour all she has done for the school, sport and rowing, in particular, after more than a decade as TRIBUTE: Principal Gillian Simpson and her husband David with the eight St Margaret’s College named in her honour. principal.

Band gets into the swing of it

Sizes 6-22

THE ALL Girl Big Band set out to inspire the younger female students from St Andrew’s College to pick up brass or wind instruments. The concert in the Centennial Chapel was for girls years 5 to 10. But the school’s jazz big band only has a few girls in it, so it is encouraging more girls to learn those instruments and develop a love for jazz. Music, dancing, singing and laughter filled the chapel. MUSICAL: Lana Law from the All Girl Big Band set to inspire young jazz musicians. ​

Bishopdale in focus „„ By Julia Evans BISHOPDALE was in front of the camera lens as its community was captured in a photography documentary. A year-long photography project by Canterbury University fine arts students finding the essence of the suburb is open to the public at Bishopdale Library. The Christchurch Documentary Project cast its eyes on Halswell in 2015, then the city’s east last year. But from April to August, Bishopdale was the subject of students Thomas Herman, Liam Lyons, Elise Williams, Janneth Gil and Lucas Perelini’s cameras. From the iconic elephant slide at Bishopdale Park to long-term tenants at the mall, Ms Gil said it was a fantastic opportunity to dig deep into the community that often flies under the radar. “I met many amazing people but I always will remember

The Burnside Scottish Country Dance Club, which meets on Farrington Ave.

Raymond and Colleen Holland. They are such a sweet couple and they have been living in the area for more than 30 years,” she said. Ms Gil said the pair had many amazing stories to tell about their community. ​The aim of the documentary project is to create a photo archive of the city post-natural disaster for future generations to see, focusing on different suburbs.

City council project manager Sam Ludemann said Bishopdale was chosen as there is a significant change and rejuvenation happening in its community at the moment. That includes the opening of the new library and mall upgrades, he said. “There’s going to be something of real value – an exhibition but also a body of work that represents the people in the community.”

„„ By Andrew King ST BEDE’S and St Margaret’s were the top water polo squads at the South Island junior secondary schools championships. Competing in Christchurch over three days at both Jellie Park Recreation and Sports Centre and Rangi Ruru Girls’, the St Bede’s year 9/10 side won the division one boys title while St Margaret’s year 9/10 team won the division one girls crown. Christ’s College and St Andrew’s placed second and third in the boys and Marlborough Girls’ and Dunedin’s Columbia College placed second and third in the girls. St Bede’s Patrick O’Neill was named boys most valuable player for the tournament. Coach Cooper Stewart said the team gelled really well especially off the back of Patrick and his brother Sam. “They both are something else. They really stood out in the tournament,” he said. The O’Neill boys are identical twins, which proves difficult for Stewart to tell them apart. “They switch shoes sometime just to mess with us. They are very identical,” he laughed. St Margaret’s Violette Perry was named girls MVP. Director of sport Helen Belcher said the team of young

O’Neill, brother Sam and Sam Rochford were joined by Christ’s Moe Gath, St Andrew’s Lachie Frazer, King’s High’s Josh McGregor and Burnside’s Darius Porter in the boys team.

Gold Coast event for Papanui baseball player „„ By Andrew King PAPANUI HIGH student Owen Dabkowski has been selected to play for the Super City Spartans in the Gold Coast summer classic baseball tournament in Australia in January. The 13-year-old has been playing baseball since he was five and currently plays for Southern Astros club based in Avonhead Park. He said he was looking forward to competing overseas. “I am looking forward to meeting new people and being able to compete at a high level for New Zealand,” he said. He said it would be great to get more students into the sport. “It is not popular at all [at Papanui High]. I think that I am the only one that plays. I’d like to introduce it to more students though,” he said. Ultimately, he would like to get a scholarship to play in the United States. Owen has been busy fundraising towards the cost of the trip through running sausage sizzles, quiz nights, a St Albans market day sale and car washing.

He was also granted $450 from the Papanui-Innes Community Board towards the trip. The classic has been run since 2016 and will feature

at least 18 teams participating in the various age group levels this year. The aim of the tournament is to develop players and the game of baseball.

„„ By Andrew King TESSA MCCANN is targeting a big year after winning the Canterbury women’s tennis open. The 16-year-old Rangi Ruru student beat Elmwood’s Emily Martin in straight sets 6-3, 6-1 at the Trustpower Tennis Centre at Wilding Park. “I was quite pleased with myself and happy with the result. The wind got a bit tricky later in the day but they were really good games,” she said. Now she is focusing on three upcoming tournaments in January, the under-16 nationals and the under-16 teams’ event, both held in Auckland and an ITF under-18 tournament in Christchurch. For now, she will focus on the

interclub competition where she plays for the Cashmere club. Tessa missed a few interclub games while she ventured overseas to watch her father and coach Neil play in the seniors world individual championships in Miami, United States early last month. He was beaten 6-4, 6-0 in the second round by Chilean Claudio Rojas Trivinos. “He is my inspiration to play tennis and has given me heaps of good tips over the years,” she said. Tessa lives in Ashburton but makes the trip up to Christchurch each week with her mother Tammy to their flat. They return to Ashburton on the weekends. “My mum is studying early childhood teaching up here so we stay in a flat,” she said.

and made cards. Dean Rebecca Allen said the pupils hand made the goods that largely sold out. “The day was a culmination of learning over the past term and it was a credit to the girls entrepreneurship and team work.

New hope for patients suffering from MS, strokes or spinal injuries

Special offer for DeceMBer - if you have suffered a stroke, spinal injury or have MS, then this article is for you.

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other physical and mental health issues, Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment that brings fast, and often immediate results. A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch in 1993. As she continued her research and medical practice, she discovered a reflexology network on the human body, an exciting new discovery that became the foundation of her new treatment – acupuncture without needles. Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt instrument to stimulate the reflexology points on the face or other parts of the body. When the point is stimulated by pressure, a message is sent to the repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan explains, the treatment increases energy, which boosts the body’s healing system. The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but that is a slow process. In addition, many people will start to use their injured part, for example a knee or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore prolonging the injury and even causing chronic pain. With her powerful treatment, results are produced very quickly – even instantly. She likens it to the differences between the power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane – other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

True

reflexology network. It brings fast results because it is a very precise treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people of all ages with many different types of pain in all parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS, and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects. Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s treatment. Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant improvement for muscle weakness and numbness caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan reflexology to see lots of instant results videos. Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology Network, which introduces the treatment and explains how it works. Her website, www. drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes treatment videos, where people who have had the treatment speak about the fast relief it has brought them. Dr Lan is offering 10 patients of stroke, 10 patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168, mobile 027 231 8388.

SENIOR LIVING

1 in 2 people deficient in B12 Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults & as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12. Scientists at Rush University Medical Center found those most deficient in vitamin B12 to have the smallest brain mass & the lowest scores on tests measuring short-term memory, concentration & brain performance. Another study showed that older people with higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains & score higher on cognitive tests than those with lower levels. Yet another recent landmark study showed that B12 supplementation slows the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage & declining cognitive function. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health, regulation of mood & sleep cycles, nerve health & repair, & prevention of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that is known to cause damage & plaque in the blood vessels. It can also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a 34% decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40+ who supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk of

hearing loss in subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12. The reason so many people lack B12 appears to be our body’s ability to absorb it declining with age as the digestive system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication & other drugs further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the mouth & thru bypassing the digestive tract have been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the body. Further detailed information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are always happy to help!

They are an effective alternative or follow-up treatment to chemically-based ointments.

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING Christchurch Course Dates 2017 Venue: 32 Birmingham Drive, Middleton

Ensuring a safe work place Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the 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

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.
