Quarry fight goes up a level „„ By Emily O’Connell WEEDONS residents are backing their Templeton neighbours in a bid to stop plans for a new quarry development. Two weeks ago, Fulton Hogan put forward a plan for a quarry on a 170ha section of land on Dawsons, Curraghs and Jones Rds which borders Weedons and

Templeton. More than 200 people gathered in St Saviour’s Anglican Church on Kirk Rd on Wednesday to discuss the proposal. Weedons Residents’ Association secretary Gary Doyle said the group will be supporting its Templeton neighbours as much as it can. “All we can do is try and fight it as well,” he said.

Mr Doyle said traffic is going to be a major problem for the area. “Maddisons Rd and Jones Rd are not suitable for a lot of heavy traffic, they’re not wide enough,” he said. Templeton Residents’ Association chairman Garry Kilday said Wednesday’s meeting was very successful.

Said Mr Kilday: “We had an awesome turn out. It was an emotive session because there were people there who are so badly affected.” Mr Kilday said the association is now creating an action group from people who attended the meeting. “The majority [of people] who were there are going to be in this group. Nobody wants this thing

[the quarry] where it is,” he said. Mr Kilday said the group will be placing signs to protest the quarry on houses and in different spots in Templeton. He said a concern the group has other than the health risks is whether there will be public consultation on the resource consent application. •Turn to page 5

Donations go up in smoke „„ By Emily O’Connell HOUSEHOLD GOODS, books and clothing destined for the needy have gone up in smoke. And that frustrates Hornby Community Care Centre manager Linda Turner. “It’s done a lot of damage to the bin but also to the donations and, of course, over the weekends, that’s the busy time,” Mrs Turner said. The centre’s donation bin was set alight in the early evening of Saturday, January 6. The fire was lit by a boy aged between 10-13, who was with a group of other youngsters, she said. The boy’s name, which was provided to the centre, had been passed on to police. Mrs Turner says the centre is “the heart of the community.” It has an opportunity store where clothing and household goods left in bins like the one set alight are sold cheaply. •Turn to page 7

Get out and about in Riccarton

WEEDONS RESIDENTS have responded to their Templeton neighbours and weighed into the battle over another quarry plan (see page 1). The quarry is in the Selwyn District but the people who will be affected most by any potential dust are in Templeton – Christchurch city turf. The Selwyn District Council and Environment Canterbury will sign off consents – which means Templeton people will desperately need help from their Weedons neighbours. At this point they are ready to help. No surprises what local community boards will prioritise this dition yeardatE] (see page 3). Hornby’s $35.7 million mega centre and the Yaldhurst Village are both key priorities. Time will tell what progress is made on both. There are still lots of hurdles to jump. - Barry Clarke

News Top priorities for this year „„ By Emily O’Connell HORNBY’S $35.7 million mega centre and the Yaldhurst Village are both key priorities for the community boards this year. Western News asked Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton and Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood community board members what the important issues in their areas were. Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board chairman Mike Mora said the Yaldhurst Village was a significant matter which the board will be working “very closely” on with the Selywn District Council and city council. “There are still a lot of legal issues to be sorted out and variations of consents and stuff which have shut quite a lot of the development out,” he said. Mr Mora described the Yaldhurst Village development is “an absolute disaster.” Over the course of the year, he also said the community board wanted to be proactive, not reactive. “What happens sometimes is the bureaucracy grinds away and comes up with a plan, and sometimes those plans don’t work in reality and then we have to go

into reactive mode to try and fix something,” Mr Mora said. He said confirming a location for Hornby’s mega centre was a major priority. The city council plans to build the centre at Denton Park. However, the proposed facility has been highly controversial with sports clubs concerned about the loss of their home ground. Mr Mora said “we need to get the best solution that will work.”

David Cartwright

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton agreed it was vital to find the best location for the centre. She also said the completion of roadworks on Riccarton Rd between Deans Ave and Harakeke St was a priority. “That’s obviously caused a lot of concerns and justifiably so,” she said. However, more work is planned along Riccarton Rd, she said. “It’s my understand-

She also wants some smaller road repairs completed including Bradshaw Tce in Riccarton. “It’s always been put backwards because compared to other roadworks, it’s not critical,” Mrs Broughton said. The expansion of Avonhead Park Cemetery was an issue identified by Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board chairman David Cartwright. Other projects which would be front and centre for the community boards included the Riccarton Community Centre, ensuring safety is maintained at the Riccarton Bus Lounge, and the completion of the Halswell skate parks. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think should be a priority in the area this year?

Rates: Are you getting your money’s worth „„ By Julia Evans THE FENDALTON, Waimairi and Harewood wards are putting $100 million into the city’s rates fund. That’s more than a fifth of the total $497 million the city council collected in rates for the 2016/17 year. But Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood Community Board deputy chairman Sam MacDonald says the $100 million doesn’t always match the level of service local ratepayers get. Mr MacDonald, an accountant, has done a financial exercise on the rates people in the wards pay. “I wanted to get it particularly in the lead up to the Long Term Plan so we can advocate for things like getting our roads fixed and getting the basics covered,” he said. Mr MacDonald said although the wards put a “high” amount of money into the city council’s rates fund, residents aren’t always getting things like good roading, clean water and rubbish collected. “We can say this is how much we pay into the kitty so it should translate . . . service shouldn’t

always are . . . there are always improvements that could be made,” he said. Mr MacDonald says a focus will be making sure the level of service ratepayers receive from the city council matches the rates they are paying. He also doesn’t want rates to increase. “I expect rate increases to be at a minimum, we’re already putting in that $100 million,” he said. He said his figures can be used by the community board to provide context when talking to community groups and ratepayers or when lobbying the city council for funding. “The way I see it, council talks about how it wants to be responsible with money, so this gives people a context to where their money is going, what they’re paying and where it’s being spent,” he said. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the FendaltonWaimairi-Harewood Community Board area is getting the level of service it should from the city council compared to the amount of rates paid?

Weedons residents to fight quarry plan •From page 1 “Environment Canterbury and the Selwyn District Council will meet to decide whether the resource consent will be decided in private or whether public participation is permitted,” Mr Kilday said. Selwyn district councillor Mark Alexander agreed with Mr Doyle that traffic could be an issue. But he doubted dust from the Garry Kilday quarry would be. “I would say based on the new Rolleston quarry’s operation, dust should not be an issue as any new consents should not allow any dust to Mark cross the quarry’s Alexander boundaries,” he said.

And if she gets one, the nineyear-old will become one of hundreds of cats rehomed by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Canterbury this summer. Pascal is an affectionate and loving animal, according to SPCA southern region general manager Barry Helem. But the furry feline has been without a home for two months. Mr Helem said Pascal was found lost in Ashburton and was taken to a vet clinic as she had an injured tongue and some dental

issues. She was collected by the SPCA ambulance and had a few teeth removed as well as other treatments to help her heal. Pascal then went to a foster home where her foster parents said she loved “rolling around, chilling out in front of the fan

and sleeping on the pillows.” Mr Helem said the perfect home for Pascal would be one with no young children, “so she can live out her golden years calmly being the centre of attention.” “She has two disclaimers – one regarding the teeth which

she had removed and another regarding a historic soft tissue injury to her right hip,” he said. Mr Helem said SPCA Canterbury has had a very high adoption rate during summer but also a very high influx of animals coming into its care. “Our adoptions for the

November and December period totalled 316. This included 201 cats and kittens, 14 dogs and puppies, 59 rabbits and 32 livestock. This total is an 11 per cent increase over the same period last year,” he said. Pascal is one of about 20 cats SPCA Canterbury is currently trying to rehome. The organisation has 321 animals on-site at present and 139 animals in foster homes. Adoption fees for an adult cat like Pascal are $150, kittens $250, adult dogs $250, puppies $350 and rabbits $50. In a bid to continue rehoming animals, SPCA Canterbury has a Facebook page which profiles different animals in their care. The page has more than 22,000 followers. SPCA is a charity which helps protect animals that are sick, injured, lost, abused or simply abandoned. Every year, the 40 SPCA centres across the country receive more than 45,000 animals through their doors and 14,000 animal welfare complaints. •Visit https://www. facebook.com/ SPCACanterbury/ for more information on the animals available

Mrs Turner is thankful for the 28 volunteers who keep the centre running. “Our volunteers are mostly older ladies . . . We have several ladies who have been here since the community centre opened – something like 37 years,” she said. Mrs Turner has been the centre manager for three and a half years, and relishes the unpredictability of the work. “You never know who’s going to come through the doors . . . sometimes it’s as simple as needing directions, but then sometimes it’s ‘how about I make you a cup of coffee?’” she said.

Don’t feel lonely Oak Development Trust community development worker Nicki Aitken talks about connecting people in the Riccarton community

Fire rage s, homes

at risk

PLAN: The proposed quarry site on Dawsons, Curraghs and Jones Rds.

I DON’T know about you, but I find that too much time alone is not good for me. That’s not to say I’m never alone. I like peace and quiet but I also know that too much of it’s not healthy. Getting the balance right can be a tricky thing to work out. I’m a community development worker in Riccarton. My role is about welcoming people into the community and helping them to connect with others. I do this by visiting new people with welcome packs, which include an information booklet of local groups and activities as well as some homebaking and preserves from the local community garden. It’s about giving everyone the opportunity to connect at some level in their new community. Not everything

appeals to everyone and you can’t do everything, but we are social beings and we all need to connect with other people sometimes for our own mental health and well-being. I love this job and am passionate about people connecting with each other. Isolation is not helpful for anyone. Linking new people in as quickly as possible goes a long way to avoiding things like loneliness and depression. We are blessed to have a great num-

ber of activities and services happening right here in our local community. Some of these activities are for children, some for older people, some for men, some for women and some are for everyone. Examples include a fortnightly café, to weekly fruit and vegetable co-operative, exercise classes, community garden and a craft group. There is no excuse not to link in somewhere. If you are new to Riccarton or want to get out and about, don’t sit at home and feel alone – get involved in a way that works for you. I’m happy to come and talk to you or someone you know about what is available. •To get in touch with Nicki call 021 056 9315 or email nicki@odt.org.nz.

Readers react to Fulton Hogan’s plans to create a quarry in Templeton Bill Palmer – The quarries in that Yaldhurst area have been there for as long as I can remember, in fact I’ve seen photos going back to the early 60s so why would any sane person buy in that neighbourhood? Gary Robinson – So the poor people who moan about the dust from these quarries think it only affects them, well what about the people that go in there or work there? Does it not affect them as well or is it only the people that live by the quarries? I’ve been going in and out of these quarries for 30 years and I’m still

alive and I only live about 3km from one. Sarah May Cronin - The city council need to do something. Talk about devaluing property in the area. Sean Woods – Plant some trees, amazes me why there are not more trees planted when everyone complains of dust. Tess Lenihan – Why buy next to a quarry? Plant trees if you’re that intent on living there. Thor Major – Seems like the right place for a quarry. Luke Simpson – People want roads but don’t want the places roads come from.

F45 WIGRAM OPENS 27 JANUARY

13

Ferrymead, Christchurch and Wigram

New concept in fitness training comes to Wigram Wigram is to be the latest Christchurch location for one of the world’s fastestgrowing fitness trends when the new F45 Training gym opens there later this month. Developed in Sydney by Rob Deutsch, a former equities trader, F45, or Functional 45 minutes, is a team-based HIIT (highintensity interval training) workout protocol that focuses on motivation, innovation and results. Franchise owner of the Wigram gym, Marcin Miroslaw, who also has F45 franchises in the central city (the first in the South Island) and Ferrymead, says one of the key advantages of the F45 concept is that participants don’t need to think about what they have to do when they come to the gym for a workout. “The programme is all laid out for members and there are two personal trainers at each class, who correct people’s technique, motivate and encourage them, plus there’s the music designed by one of the world’s top DJs to keep them pumped,” Marcin says. Over the 45-minute programme, participants proceed round the circuit doing short bursts of exercise, with shorter breaks in between. Circuit styles are different every

day and there are more than 30 different workouts, combining elements of HIIT, Circuit Training, and Functional Training. This combination of interval, cardiovascular and strength training has been proven to be the most effective workout method for burning fat and building lean muscle. “It’s enjoyable, and it brings results,” Marcin says. “Workouts change daily and are never repeated, and all the workouts are tested by the F45 Athletic department to optimise the results and experience of the participants.” F45 offers several membership options, but most people opt for the month-on-month membership, with 28 days’ cancellation notice, he says. “Members have unlimited access to all classes and there is no joining or cancellation fee.” A big part of the F45 programme is the eight-week challenge. Run four times a year, it is a fantastic way to help people lose weight and reach their fitness goals, Marcin says. “The F45 eight-week challenge also includes nutritional support, shopping lists, recipes and daily meal plans and goal tracking, which helps people achieve their weight loss goals in a much healthier way

than going on diets. The next eight-week challenge starts on January 29. “F45 has been established in more than 30 countries around the world, and since coming to New Zealand, it has really taken off here. It’s different from other gyms as it is a big part of the community, with involvement in social events and members feeling that they are part of a team.

F45 8 WEEK CHALLENGE 29 January – 25 March The F45 Challenge can help you become a fitter and healthier YOU. Get life-changing results with our:  proven nutrition program  delicious meal plans  world-class team training

 a supportive community to keep you motivated throughout your journey

“We offer a two-weeks free trial, which lets everyone experience F45 and most of our classes.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Co-Q10 reduces all Centuries old folk remedy causes of mortality supports good health! by 50% Researchers were amazed with the results of how beneficial a natural nutrient Coenzyme- Q10 (CoQ10) is to the human body. Co-Q10 is a natural enzyme in the body’s cells that is essential for cell function, energy and survival. The Heart, Liver, Kidneys and Pancreas require large amounts of Co-Q10 to function well. In a recent multi country double blind trial on the possible benefits of CoQ10 to protect against heart failure, 420 patients with severe heart failure were given CoQ10 or a placebo and then followed for two years. It was found to the amazement of the researchers the patients who received the Co-Q10 had a 50% reduction in an adverse cardiovascular event or death compared to the placebo patients. Not only this but the patients on the CoQ10 had a 50% reduction in death not only from cardiovascular events but from all causes. According to lead study author Professor Mortensen this study is the first in over a decade to show a natural nutrient can reduce heart failure mortality and CoQ10 should be added as a standard treatment for anyone with cardiovascular complaints. It is known that CoQ10 levels decrease in the heart muscle of patients with heart failure as severity worsens. Statin drugs

are used to treat many patients with cardiovascular problems but these drugs also reduce CoQ10 levels further in the body. Symptoms of low CoQ10 in the body can be low energy and endurance, muscle pain, poor memory and concentration and poor heart function or heart failure. CoQ10 levels are known to decrease as we age and many researchers believe keeping our levels up of this vital nutrient may help prevent many chronic diseases including cancer. Co-Q10 is available as a natural supplement to support good health.

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array of powerful health benefits. It is none other than the popular apple cider vinegar or ACV. Since the time of Hippocrates – the “Father of Medicine” – ACV has been renowned for its curative properties. In his popular book “ARTHRITIS and FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis reports how he found that Vermonters who regularly consumed ACV and Honey had excellent health with many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even when well into their eighties. He also noted the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be remarkable with many patients reporting almost total relief after taking a course of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted calcium deposits and helped the body control calcium use. He also noted that Vermonters who consumed ACV and H around meal time had excellent blood pressure and circulation. The reason he found was that protein foods thickened the blood and vinegar thinned it. As the blood thickens it cannot pass as easily and quickly through the blood vessels and capillaries. This poor blood flow would reduce cellular health by limiting nutrients to the cells as well as waste elimination from the cells. To prevent cell damage the body naturally increases blood pressure but this puts more stress on the blood vessels, organs and heart. Having ACV and H with meals will help prevent protein raising the blood

Apple Cider VinegAr - Powerful Natural Health Tonic ACV is a highly nutritious with all the goodness of apples (one of our most health-giving fruits) in a form that is readily accepted by the body. It promotes healthy digestion, assimilation of nutrients & elimination of wastes. Detoxifying & purifying & supports the function of vital organs like the kidneys, bladder, liver & heart. Helps neutralise toxic substances & harmful bacteria in food. A time-honoured natural remedy to improve health & longevity.

pressure. It also contributes to a feeling of greater well-being because the thinner blood circulates quickly and more easily through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found regular consumption of CV and H to be an excellent health tonic with numerous health attributes. ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all the goodness of the apple in a form that is readily accepted by the body. Good health starts with good digestion and assimilation of nutrients. ACV taken before food will stimulate and promote healthy digestion and assimilation of vital nutrients for good health. A well-functioning digestive system helps prevent disease by neutralising any toxic substances that enter the body. It is important to note not all ACV is produced in the traditional way and results are likely to prove disappointing with these other vinegars. Marshall’s Premium ACV and ACV with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in Canterbury from Organic whole apples in the traditional way. It is double strength so you can use less.

S t r e t c h

your way back to it As we return to our normal daily routines after the holidays you may begin to find the odd ache or pain creeping in.

T

his is a good indicator from our bodies, that the holiday routine was somewhat different. Perhaps you sit a lot for work and you were on the go or, you are normally more active and the holiday break was more sedentary. Either way the sooner you pay attention to these signals the easier it will be to deal with it. So what can you do to ward off pain and stiffness and boost your energy and alertness? 10 simple stretching exercises at your desk that will release tension from head to toe. They take only a few minutes. Set the alarm on your cell phone or computer to go off every hour to remind you it’s time to get up and stretch. Just stand up and sit down - no hands If you stand up and sit down (over and over) without using your hands it can be a challenge, do it while you’re on the phone; no one will know. Shrug your shoulders - to release the neck and shoulders Inhale deeply and shrug your shoulders, lifting them high up to your ears. Hold. Release and drop. Repeat three times. Loosen the hands with air circles Clench both fists, stretching both hands

out in front of you. Make circles in the air, first in one direction, to the count of ten. Then reverse the circles. Shake out the hands. Point your fingers - good for hands, wrist, and forearms

Stretch your left hand out in front of you, pointing fingers toward the floor. Use your right hand to increase the stretch, pushing your fingers down and toward the body. Be gentle do the same with the other hand. Now stretch your left hand out straight in front, wrist bent, with fingers pointing skyward. Use your right hand to increase the stretch, pulling the fingers back toward your body. Do the same on the other side. Release the upper body with a torso twist Inhale and as you exhale, turn to the right and grab the back of your chair with your right hand, and grab the arm of the chair with your left. With eyes level, use your grasp on the chair to help twist your torso around as far to the back of the room as possible. Hold the twist and let your eyes continue the stretch see how far around the room you can peer. Slowly come back to facing forward. Repeat on the other side. Do leg extensions Grab the seat of your chair to brace yourself

and extend your legs straight out in front of you so they are parallel to the floor.Flex and point your toes five times. Release. Repeat. Stretch your back with a “big hug” Hug your body, placing the right hand on your left shoulder and the left hand on your right shoulder. Breathe in and out, releasing the area between your shoulder blades. Cross your arms - for the shoulders and upper back Extend one arm out straight in front of you. With the other hand, grab the elbow of the outstretched arm and pull it across your chest, stretching your shoulder and upper back muscles. Hold. Release. Stretch out the other arm in front of you - repeat. Stretch your back and shoulders with a “leg hug” Sit on the edge of your chair (if it has wheels, wedge the chair against the desk or

True

wall to make sure it does not roll). Put your feet together, flat on the floor. Lean over, chest to knees, letting your arms dangle loosely to the floor. Release your neck. Now bring your hands behind your legs, right hand grasping left wrist, forearm (or elbow if you can reach that far), left hand grasping the right. Feel the stretch in your back, shoulders and neck. Hold. Release your hands to the floor again. Repeat three times or as often as it feels good. Look up to release upper body Sit up tall in your chair, or stand up. Stretch your arms overhead and interlock your fingers. Turn the palms to the ceiling as you lift your chin up, tilt your head back, and gaze up at the ceiling, too. Inhale, exhale, release.

Christchurch Girls

2018 Pathways at Linwood College Education is about the well-being of the whole person and how developmentally positive experiences enrich our students’ understanding of who they are and broaden their outlook. They nurture students’ classroom focus by contextualising their learning and sowing the seeds of positive ambition. Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed curriculum’. This means the school, students and families knowing:

Last year our school was 140 years old and in that 140 year history we have never doubted what we stand for. We know what we are. From our beginnings in 1877 we have only ever been a purpose built school for girls. When our school first opened on that September day in 1877 who could have envisaged 140 years later: three site moves, a number of earthquakes, 13 principals and a fabulous new building? In that time we have seen the move from ink pens to ball points, from blackboards to whiteboards to laptops. It makes you wonder what the future holds in store and how can you prepare for what may or may not be? At Christchurch Girls’ High School we work hard to build capacity in our students so that they are able to embrace the future with confidence. Students strive to pursue personal excellence on the sporting field, in cultural activities, through community service and

academically. They do so with energy and enthusiasm, supported by an experienced, professional and caring staff. We are traditional in aspects such as uniform, courtesy and the high expectations we have of our students but innovative in the wide range of opportunities we provide both inside and outside the classroom. Hence our vision: Embrace Tradition, Embrace Innovation, Embrace Excellence. Education takes us from darkness into light.

The main building (the one you see from Waterloo Road) will contain specialist teaching spaces for technologies, visual arts and sciences. It will also include our learning commons, Whare, student cafe and wellness resources, staffroom, and administration. We all know of course that a school is much more than its buildings, and a huge amount of work has gone into adapting how we cause learning. The Manaiakalani pedagogy (Learn Create Share), and the use of digital devices (Chromebooks) is having a huge effect on student achievement, with achievement surpassing growth and improvement nationally by a significant margin. We ask all students to come to school equipped with a Chromebook, apart from your time, there is little better you can invest in your child’s education than the purchase of that Chromebook. Junior students are increasingly approaching their learning via real world contexts (whether it’s the arts or business, or project based learning designed to improve our community in real ways). This is contributing to improved engagement and improved learning. We are a very values based school, and our students repeatedly show that they have a heart for our values, for their community, and for what is right. What an amazing year we are going to have.

Tony visited the school to share the process of making a movie from developing the idea, writing the script, casting the actors and adding the special effects. The children were in awe listening to him and asked some fantastic questions about the journey of making the movie. The children from the Ruru and Kuaka teams then got to sit inside the sleigh that was used in the actual movie. Even Principal John Bockett got in on the action by sitting inside the sleigh and making it go faster than the speed of light by pressing the red button on the dashboard of the sleigh!

Shirley Intermediate When Shirley Intermediate School’s two swimming pools were earthquake damaged the SIS Board of Trustees, having found no likely help sources, undertook costly repairs. Now, after six summers their pupils continue to reap the benefits. In addition to swimming almost daily, pupils can also join the endurance club. As few SIS pupils attend swim clubs, It is significant whenever the 1km continuous swimming certificate is awarded. In addition to hosting Banks Avenue and Shirley Primary schools (who can use the

15m pool), and Shirley Boys High School sports groups, the school has hosted the St Albans Swimming Club – formerly based at the now-closed Edgeware Pool for several years. Principal, Geoff Siave said the pools provide achievement opportunities and fun - for pupils, local schools, and the community. “Learning to swim is achievable, and we’’re also building community connections.” Children need to see connections between school and real life.
