Shellie's new home
Shellie, a much loved but elderly
dog, has found a home within
weeks of the Christchurch Mail
printing a story about her plight.
Rescued from death row by her
owners some years ago, Shellie's
rehoming was forced by her
owners' return to America next
month. The partly-blind, partly-deaf
staffy could not make the long trip
to America and her owners were
desperate to find her a home
where she could live out her days
in peace. She has moved to Cust,
The draft Edgeware master plan
will not go through hearings due to
the high level of public support for
it. This followed the Shirley/
Papanui Community Board
recommendation that hearings
would not be necessary. Any
amendments would be made after
consideration of public
submissions. Council urban
design and regeneration unit
manager Carolyn Ingles said it
would speed up the process to get
the plan finalised and brought
back to the council for its final
sign-off. Mayor Bob Parker said
the decision not to hold hearings
signalled a vote of confidence in
the draft plan. Of the 75
submissions 89 per cent agreed
with the document's vision and
goals. The plan is expected to be
adopted later this year.
Station demo order
The historic Lyttelton Police
Station will be demolished. After
months of investigation, it has
been found the 130-year-old
building is too expensive to repair.
A repair estimate put the cost at
about $1.5 million. Parts of the
station will be salvaged. There will
be a new station built in Lyttelton
and police are committed to
maintaining a presence in the port
Neighbourhood party promotion
KEEN TO get to know your neigh-
bours better? Or perhaps you
already know them but a wee
street party might be nice.
You can apply for funding for a
community occasion to achieve
either of the above.
Neighbourhood Week funding
applications are open. The city
council will once again fund
events organised by neighbours,
Neighbourhood Week runs from
October 25 to November 3, how-
ever getting your application in on
time will mean the difference
between making the funding cut
and missing out.
The event can be anything you
like, but it must be neighbours-
focused. Previous events have
included kite-flying days,
barbecues, and community walks
-- all with the aim of bringing
people closer together.
Applications for funding close
on Saturday, August 31.
Note the funding is given as a
refund of documented expenses
rather than a pre-event payout.
You must secure funding per-
mission before the event with your
application, pay for the event
yourself or as a group, then apply
for a reimbursement of costs after
the event. Keep a record of recei-
pts and purchases.

HOT STUFF: Shin Yamashita's mobile
teppanyaki idea has proven so popular,
it's on its way to Auckland.
JAPANESE TEPPENYAKI chef
Shin Yamashita has gone mobile
since the Kaiapoi restaurant he
worked in was destroyed in the
Now, his highly successful con-
cept could be the next big thing for
Auckland dining -- at least, that is
what student entrepreneur Kate
Austin is banking on.
Ms Austin, a fifth-year law and
business student at Canterbury
University, plans to open a
replica of the novel Christchurch
business Shin's Teppanyaki in
Auckland next month.
Shin's Teppanyaki is a one-man
Japanese restaurant that travels
to diners, setting up in their back
yards, dining rooms, or garages.
The mobile restaurant has
grown rapidly this year, with
bookings five or six nights a week.
Anyone after a Saturday night
booking must wait until March
next year for the next free date.
Its remarkable popularity was a
key factor behind Kate's decision
to start up her own Shin's
Teppanyaki in Auckland.
We had Shin over for a dinner
party at the flat and we loved
him,'' she said.
I really liked the concept and
when I heard how busy he was, I
thought about how well he would
do in a place like Auckland.''
The restaurant will be Kate's
first business venture, but she is
confident of its potential.
From that one night at our flat,
he got another three bookings.''
Hospitality New Zealand South
Island regional manager Amy
Mclellan-Minty said that operat-
ing out of portable or temporary
locations had become a popular
solution for Christchurch
It's smart, if they want to keep
their doors open right now, as
some of their damaged buildings
haven't even come down yet.''
Shin said he had always liked
the idea of starting up a mobile
restaurant, but never had a
chance to do so.
My boss didn't know when our
building would be repaired, so
the earthquake really made Shin's
Teppanyaki happen,'' he said.
A friend helped me build a
mobile teppanyaki plate and then
I just began taking bookings and
coming to cook.''
Kate will manage the Auckland
version of the restaurant while
finishing her studies and looks
forward to putting what she has
learned into practice.
