Car park concern shifts

• By Caitlin Miles

VERNON TCE residents

fear they will lose off-street

car parks if yellow lines are

installed on Rapaki Rd.

More than two thirds of

submitters supported the

city council’s plan to install no

parking lines along Rapaki Rd

and part of Montgomery Tce.

The city council received 93

submissions on the plans to

restrict parking, 66 supported

the idea, 24 were against

and three submissions were

unclear.

Thirty of those submissions,

both for and against the

parking restrictions, were concerned

over the impact on the

surrounding streets, namely

Vernon Tce.

Rapaki Rd is the main

access way to Rapaki Track,

which is popular with walkers,

runners and mountain bikers,

especially on the weekends.

One submitter opposed the

plans because Vernon Tce is

“already dangerously congested”

and banning parking

on Rapaki Rd will only add to

the congestion.

A Vernon Tce resident

said they were “terrified

that restrictions proposed

on Rapaki Rd will have an

extremely detrimental effect

on traffic, congestion, parking

and safety on Vernon Tce,”

and opposed the parking

ban unless more parking is

provided elsewhere.

Another submitter supports

the city council’s plan but

said they want Vernon Tce

included before the plans are

approved.

WHAT MAY be Rapaki Rd

residents’ gain, appears to be

Vernon Tce residents’ loss.

People running and walking

the Rapaki Track area have long

been a source of pain for residents

who live along that very well used

stretch of tarmac.

That’s because Rapaki residents

have difficulty getting in and out

of their driveways, and fear hitting

cyclists.

Yellow no parking lines might

be painted in Rapaki Rd (see our

page 1 story) to solve the problem.

But nearby Vernon Tce residents

believe they will take the brunt of

the runners and walkers who will

go there and clog up their road.

We’ll keep you posted.

Build your next home

with Artisan Homes

Your local registered Master Builder

Home building is as much about understanding the

landscape and the client as it is the plan and the

materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our

small company has built a huge range of homes that are

distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective.

From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses

to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work

spans all types of house building.

Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a

reputation for constructing high quality houses.

An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular

expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is

passionate about the quality results they produce.

With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes

have worked in all areas of residential construction. There

are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our

overall approach remains the same.

While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted

home building we also are renowned for getting the right

result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult

access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of

life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered

or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of

houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and

overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our

larger competitors we do have their networks and buying

power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective

results possible.

At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for

people who appreciate the work that goes into what will,

ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

Cafe fears parking loss

• By Caitlin Miles

A SELWYN St shop owner said

her business will suffer if the

city council removes car parks

outside her cafe in favour of

cycleways.

Sarah Lim and her husband,

Cham Chap, opened their

cafe, Pies and Coffee, in May

last year and have opposed the

Selwyn St shop upgrade plans,

which involve removing 19 car

parks to put in cycleways.

Ms Lim said it was hard

enough keeping a new business

running and, if car parks are

removed outside their shop

front, they will struggle more

as their cafe will no longer be

convenient for people passing

through.

“It will be a big loss for us if

they take our parking, people

have said they will no longer

stop,” Ms Lim said.

The Selwyn St shop upgrade

plan involves removing

car parks to put cycleways

down both sides of Selwyn

St, between Brougham and

Coronation Sts.

Other plans for the upgrade

include narrowing Coronation

St where it intersects with

Selwyn St to slow traffic

Rosewarne St and Somerset

Cres will also be effected by the

plan changes.

The city council said the

plans will create a “village feel”

for the road.

The original Selwyn St shops

suffered considerable damage in

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes

and about 60 per cent of the

buildings were lost or unusable.

A master plan for the

new shops was signed off in

July 2012, with the aim of

rejuvenating the area.

said the loss of car parking will

and she wanted the city council

to think of other options.

“I think the council need to

look at other ways of creating a

village feel without taking car

parks way from businesses,” Dr

Woods said.

The city council project

team is currently going

through feedback received

from consultation to present

to the Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board in February.

Veterinary practice

Caring for TurTles

Foot injury needing veterinary attention.

Turtle Facts:

Turtles are not your average pets. They

are fascinating creatures that aren’t

particularly complicated to care for as

long as you invest a little time and have

the right equipment, you can enjoy them

for a possible 25 to 40 years!

Pet turtles in NZ are usually red-eared

sliders or snake necks. Turtles are cold

blooded so regulate their temperature

from their environment, moving between

sunning area and the layers of warm and

cool water.

Turtles have hard shells made up of

around 60 bones covered by plates called

scutes. Scutes are shed once or twice

a year and can be easily scratched by

minor trauma or softened by prolonged

immersion in warm water. When they

bask in the sun, their scutes dry and firm

back up.

The shell is part of its skeleton which is

attached to the spine and the rib cage

so they can’t crawl out of it. They can feel

pressure and pain through their shells,

just as you can feel pressure through your

fingernails.

Enviroment

Turtles can grow to be 13-28cm in

length so they will need a relatively large

enclosure. An outdoor enclosure is the

best place for your turtles – one with

water to swim, rocks to sunbathe on and

some shelter under which to keep cool.

If you are going to keep your turtle in an

aquarium, it is very important to keep

it clean. Turtles are messy eaters so the

water needs to be changed regularly &

good filter is essential.

Plenty of natural light is good, but they

also need special UV bulbs and a

heat lamp. A full spectrum UVA/

UVB reptile light is necessary for

the production of calcium and

maintenance of the hardness of

their shells. The ideal temperature

in an aquarium should be carefully

monitored and in the correct range.

Gravel is not necessary, and very

small gravel can be ingested by your

turtle and this can cause blockage

problems. Use stones that are large

enough not to be swallowed or river

rocks.

Diet

A healthy, balanced diet for turtles consists

of a wide variety of foods, from snails to

alfalfa. Red-eared turtles are omnivores,

eating mostly meat when young and

becoming vegetarian as they age and

need less protein. Juveniles turtles (up to

1yr old) should be fed twice a day and

adults every second day. They can only

feed in water.

Turtles like to eat worms, snails, insects,

fish and boiled chicken. The plants they

prefer include most varieties found in

tropical fish tanks, plus lettuce, cabbage,

alfalfa, and berries. Turtle food bought

from a pet shop contains essential

vitamins and minerals including calcium,

which is needed for the development of

the shell. A poor diet results in a soft shell

and a lethargic pet.

Do not feed - Red meat or processed

meat. Cat or dog food, avocado, spinach,

silverbeet, peas, corn, cauliflower,

cabbage, broccoli, fruits, raw chicken,

rhubarb, beetroot, tomato, celery

Turtle Problems

If your Turtle has the correct diet and

environment it is unlikely to get ill or have

problems but there are a few things to

look out for.

These include: Soft shell syndrome

(Metabolic Bone Disease): a result of poor

diet and/or insufficient lighting. Fungal

infections: a cotton-like layer on the shell,

eyes or mouth. Respiratory infections:

Wheezing, lethargy, a runny nose and loss

of appetite, all due to an environment that

is too cold.

If you see any of these symptoms in your

pet, make sure you take them to us for

assessment and treatment.

I really enjoy looking after the turtles that

come through our vet clinic. They are

beautiful, amazing and resilient creatures.

There is never a dull moment at work and

you never know what creatures we will

treat next!

This week’s

opinion

piece was

written by

retiring City

Missioner

Michael Gorman

about not losing sight

of what Christmas

really means

For most of us Christmas

is a time of great

happiness.

Children are excited

as they receive gifts and

we use the time to get together

as families and with

friends to celebrate.

For some people, this

time of year also has great

religious significance as we

recall the birth of Jesus.

Whatever our belief, it is

a time to get together with

those we love and enjoy

ourselves.

Not everyone has good

reason to celebrate.

For some people, Christmas

reminds them of happier

days long gone.

Days when, for example,

they were not fighting addiction,

had not suffered

loss and separation and

were not unemployed and

living in poverty.

Christmas can be a time

of great loneliness if there

has been death or family

separation.

Many old people are

forgotten in the busy

Christmas rush.

Christmas can also be a

time of over spending.

We all want to give as

much as we can to our

children and to those we

love.

We are often seduced by

advertising and easy credit

into buying goods that we

cannot afford and we are

then in debt for much of

the next year.

While not wanting to

be the Grinch who stole

Christmas, maybe we

should cut back our spending

to what we can afford.

Homemade gifts or offers

to help out during the

year are just as acceptable

as expensive presents and

still tell people we love

them.

Remembering the lonely

and being aware of the

need to include them in

our celebrations and giving

people our time may

be the very best gift. And,

if it is safe to do so, then

Christmas may be the time

for family reconciliation.

Even if Christmas has no

religious meaning for us

we can still give love – the

greatest gift of all.

Cuddly Coachy gets VIP care

• By Caitlin Miles

WHEN PET Doctors

Barrington met Coachy, the

worse for wear Waiau Lodge

Hotel cat, they decided to treat

her for free.

The hotel was badly damaged

following the November 14,

7.8 magnitude earthquake and

Coachy went missing, turning

up five days later looking uncomfortable.

Somerfield resident Carl Wadham

was retrieving a jukebox

and a pool table in the hotel

when he spotted Coachy.

A cat lover, he wanted to make

sure she could get some help and

asked Pet Doctors Barrington to

have a look at her.

“I decided to call the vet in

Christchurch and see if they

would help the cat,” he said.

Team leader Emily Coulter

said they had planned to just

look after her, but when the

team met her and found how

much they liked Coachy they

decided to take a closer look at

her.

Coachy was X-rayed and while

she had no broken bones, her

teeth “weren’t in the best shape”.

The vets performed dental surgery,

administered antibiotics

and kept her for two weeks.

“She was a typical pub cat, just

wanted cuddles from everyone

and she was quite a vocal cat,

but really nice,” Ms Coulter said.

She said the bill would have

run into several hundred dollars

but since they volunteered to do

it, it was free.

“We just volunteered our own

time, like our lunch breaks and

that so we could get her fixed

up,” she said.

When the vets cleared her to

go Mr Wadham took her back

to Waiau much to the joy of her

owners.

“They were very happy to have

her back,” he said.

If the city council proceeds

with plans as they are, parking

restrictions would run along

the left side of Rapaki Rd from

Centaurus Rd to Montgomery

Tce, and on the right hand

side on the top stretch of the

road.

Montgomery Tce would also

have restrictions on the left

hand side of the road leading to

Fourteen submissions also

raised concerns about where

residents with no off-street

parking would park, suggesting

“residents only” parking permits

Tasman Gillies

Environmentalist follows in the

Tasman Gillies, 27 of Ngāi Tahu (Ngāti Wheke), is a third

generation tāngata tiaki and guardian of Lyttelton Harbour.

Annabelle Dick talked to him about his work and how he

almost followed a completely different career path

You work for Ngāi Tahu, can

you tell me about what you do?

I’m an environmental advisor

– mahinga kai monitoring and

enhancement for Ngāi Tahu.

You’re also tāngata tiaki –

what does that mean and what

do you do in that role?

Tāngata tiaki are guardians

responsible for managing fisheries

resources. In regards to

my role as tāngata tiaki, it’s an

ongoing thing. It’s the legislative

side so it’s a ministerial appointment.

Effectively we manage

the mātaitai (an identified

traditional fishing ground with

special status) and issue customary

fishing permits for the ngāti

wheke area. In the harbour, ngāti

wheke is a representative on the

Whakaraupo/Lyttelton Catchment

Management Plan so I’m

the science advisor for that.

You’re a third generation

tāngata tiaki, can you tell me

about your family and their

involvement?

My pōua was involved in

the establishment of the first

mataitai reserve at Rapaki. The

whole purpose is a recognition

of rangatiratanga and the

relationship with the traditional

fishing grounds and customary

fishing management within the

mataitai. They were made the

first ever tāngata tiaki.

Did having the family connection

prompt you to follow it

as a career?

It definitely influenced it, but I

didn’t go to university intending

to study it or come out involved

in this area. My Dad’s a GP so

I went down to study medicine

and in the first year I knew it

wasn’t for me. I’m not sure if I

would’ve got into my second

year, but regardless, I didn’t want

to do it. Funnily enough, I told

my dad and he laughed and said

“good, because I didn’t think

you wanted to do it, but I didn’t

want to influence your decision.”

I laugh at that because I could’ve

saved myself a year but, at the

same time, I had to realise it.

I changed course and ended

up gravitating towards marine

LEGACY: Tasman Gillies is continuing his family legacy as a

third generation tangata tiaki.

science and work associated with

mahinga kai.

Did you learn a lot about your

family in the process?

Yes. You start to run into

people that used to know my

pōua and talk to them. The

people I work with now at Ngāi

Tahu worked with him when

he was alive and, being an iwi,

some of them are related to him

as well so you hear stories. You

definitely learn the technical

things like dates and specific

legislative parts and what

mātaitai is and taiapure.

Considering the involvement

your pōua had, do you feel any

pressure to live up to his name?

Not at all – if anything it’s

more understanding about what

he wanted. The process that him

and Henry Couch were involved

with, and what they did to get

the mātaitai in place, it was a

lengthy process. For me, it’s

about understanding what he

wanted to achieve because Ngāi

Tahu always uses the saying

“Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri, ā muri

ake ne,” which means “for us

and our children after us.” It’s a

pretty straightforward concept.

Knowing my pōua was involved

in that whole process, and being

third generation tāngata tiaki, it’s

quite a literal thing for me. In his

mind, he wanted to sustain the

fisheries and have management

over it so our generation could

too. It comes back to the concept

of kaitiakitanga, or kaitiaki,

which means guardianship

or stewardship over the

environment. Ngāti Wheke

is my hapu, so that’s Rāpaki.

Our area is Lyttelton Harbour

or Whakaraupo and because

I whakapapa back to there,

kaitiaki or guardianship is also

a responsibility – so our world

view is we have a responsibility

to take care of it as well.

footsteps of his ancestors

HOME: Tasman Gillies is at home in the harbour.

Being tāngata tiaki is not so

much about continuing his

legacy – it’s more what I should

be doing anyway. The kaitiaki

concept isn’t exclusive to Maori,

I think people should have a responsibility

towards the environment

and take care of it because

we’re being trusted to take care

of it while we’re here for future

generations.

Did you grow up at Rāpaki?

We moved to Rāpaki when I

was nine. I was born in Australia

and lived in a little town called

Alstonville near Byron Bay. Both

of my parents are Kiwi and I

have two older sisters. We kind

of grew up in the bush – we

lived in a big valley and the next

neighbour was a kilometre away

so we had all the room to play

around but we had to be careful

because it was Aussie. We knew

we were Maori but, in Australia,

we were absent from the culture

in a sense. When I moved here, it

was a big learning curve. I think

that was why our parents wanted

us to move back to see those

things.

What does your family do?

My mum and dad still live

in Rāpaki – he’s a doctor. My

sister works for the Ministry of

Education, but she was previously

a Maori teacher at Lincoln

High School. My other sister is a

dentist in Masterton.

What was it like moving to

Rāpaki?

It was a shock initially. You

can know you’re Maori but then

someone goes “oh you’re Maori,

do you want to be in the Kapa

Haka group?” I didn’t even know

what that was. People look at

you funny because they know

things about your culture that

you don’t. But in saying that, my

sister became a Maori teacher.

It’s been a massive learning

curve but also a really good one.

It’s more than the acknowledgement

I’m Maori now. Now I’m

part of it.

Where did you go to school?

I went to Lyttelton West then

Cashmere High School.

I heard you were head boy,

too? You kept that one quiet.

Yeah I was . . . that was a laugh.

Do you have any hidden

talents?

I won the dance competition

at the work Christmas function

out of like 300 people. I don’t

know what kind of dancing I

was doing and when and where I

picked it up . . . I just free-styled.

I think I picked it up from those

Step Up films from years ago. I

was dressed as The Wiggles with

a few of the guys from work.

What do you do for fun?

I love surfing and skiing and I

used to do waka ama, too, which

is outrigger canoeing.

Have you travelled overseas?

In 2014, after I had submitted

my masters thesis, I went to

Canada. I lived in Whistler for a

year working at the bar and on

the mountain and just skied and

had fun. I had a good time and,

by the end of the year, I came

back wanting to make use of my

degree and be more involved in

something besides living paycheck

to paycheck.

Were there any bear encounters?

Yeah, walking through the

village early morning and I was

still quite tired and went through

the forest section in the valley.

I looked up and there’s a beer

standing just in front of me. He

didn’t really care so I just turned

around cause I didn’t want to

deal with it. You get them everywhere.

They’re quite clever so a

lot of the door handles are knobs

because they know how to open

the levers. Stuff like that I wasn’t

used to. The raccoons were

hilarious but they’re the weirdest

creatures that waddle around.

Boosting whitebait numbers

across the city’s waterways

• By Caitlin Miles

Tuesday December 20 2016

VOLUNTEERS were recognised

for spending 400 hours helping

to get whitebait back into the

Heathcote as a citywide project

comes to an end.

Cassels and Sons Brewery

hosted an event on behalf of the

Whaka Inaka project to thank

all of the people who helped get

whitebait numbers up as part of

the project.

The project was started at the

end of 2015 by Canterbury University’s

Shane Orchard and EOS

Ecology with the hope of finding

suitable locations for whitebait to

spawn and raise the level of fish in

the Heathcote River, Steamwharf

Stream and Lake Kate Sheppard.

Over the course of the project,

volunteers and school pupils put

in about 400 hours of work to

triple the number of whitebait in

the Heathcote River.

EOS Ecology environmental

scientist Kirsty Brennan said it

had been rewarding to see so

many members of the community

wanting to learn and help.

“It was great seeing the

excitement on people’s faces . . .

getting the community engaged

has been really important,” Ms

NEW HABITAT: The volunteers installed straw bales, which help

whitebait to spawn, along Steamwharf Stream as part of the

Whaka Inaka project.

Brennan said.

The school children spent time

learning about life cycles, habitats

and threats to whitebait, as well

as assessing spawning grounds

along the waterways. Some

schools kept whitebait in the

classroom to watch them develop

over time.

Recently, EOS hosted an Inanga

(whitebait) Celebration Day

where schools went down to part

of the Heathcote River in Hansen

Park to release their whitebait

back into the river.

This project was funded by the

Department of Conservation,

the Brian Mason Trust and

contributions from local

businesses.

FreshChoice, SuperValue

give back to community

THIS Christmas, FreshChoice

and SuperValue supermarkets

are encouraging customers

to give back to their local

community.

Give Local allows customers

to donate non-perishable food

items and health products to

those in need.

Specially-marked food collection

trolleys are in place

now at every FreshChoice and

SuperValue store throughout

New Zealand until New Year’s

Day.

All items collected are destined

to support local charities,

such as the Salvation Army,

community food banks and

community-led food collections

from organisations like

the Lions Club.

Christchurch-based

FreshChoice and SuperValue

brands manager Liz de Lange

said: “We encourage customers

to look at what they are able

to afford and pop a few extra

items in their trolley to give to

the local charity.”

The supermarkets are

also collecting for the Red

Cross’s earthquake appeal

at all checkouts. Collections

have been started by a

$5000 donation from the

supermarket group.

Technology boost for pupils

THREE SCHOOLS in the

Southern View area took

advantage of a technology

workshop at St Margaret’s

College recently, learning how

to build robots and skills for the

future.

Pupils from Te Whanau

Tahi, Rowley Ave School and

Te Waka Unua came together

to experience robotics, 3D

design and printing, coding and

makerspace.

The aim of the event was

to provide pupils with an

opportunity to be exposed to

a range of technology projects

that allowed the development

of personal as well as technical

skills.

St Margaret’s wants to

provide ongoing workshops

and programmes for students

and teachers from other

Christchurch and Canterbury

schools.

Through their experience,

Teacher Robyn Drummond

said the pupils never set out

to write a book, they had been

learning about their own and

cultures and what they thought

was important.

The book features a favourite

Christchurch experience by each

child, and a picture to illustrate

it. It is now in the city libraries.

continual testing of their

projects was also taught.

St Margaret’s College students

“As far as we are aware, Courtney

Courtney and for the sport of

gymnastics in New Zealand,”

said GymSports NZ chief executive

Tony Compier.

HPSNZ is hoping to see Mc-

Gregor grow on her performance

at Rio, with an eye toward the

2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

McGregor is now a student

athlete in the United States at

Boise State University and is on

a four-year scholarship under

head coaches Tina Bird and Neil

Resnick. The two led the college

team to a record 15-meet unbeaten

regular season last year.

“I’m learning so much here

at Boise and to know that my

hard work and goals are being

recognised and supported from

home is fantastic. It also helps to

justify all the time and money

that my parents have invested

in my gymnastics over the years

to get me here. I’m stoked,” said

McGregor.

She is at her family home in

Halswell for Christmas and will

return to Boise in the new year.

Food business focuses on

healthy choices

Their experiences on New Zealand

reality TV show MKR was the catalyst for

two Christchurch women, Ricki and Jessie,

to start their own food business – with the

focus firmly on healthy eating.

The pair spent many hours spent tasting,

testing and developing a series of healthy,

nutritionally balanced salads before

launching Healthkicks in April 2015.

“We wanted to provide healthy

options for everyday people,” says Ricki.

“Everyone’s busy these days and as a result

they sometimes find it quicker and easier

to get fast foods, which are often unhealthy.

We wanted to change that culture and offer

healthier options.”

Their selection of fresh, tasty salads

can be purchased in takeaway containers,

which hold a generous portion of up to

500 grams for $10. The salads can also be

vacuum-packed, so they will last longer in

the fridge. Those without lettuce can be

served hot or cold.

They are also available as platters to

serve at parties and barbeques, and with

Christmas Day and other festive occasions

coming up, these would be ideal, Ricki says.

They are delivered in vacuum packs for

easy storage. And as a healthy sweet treat

for ‘afters’, Healthkicks has the delicious

snickers slice.

Items are ordered through the website,

healthkicks.nz, with free delivery available

throughout the Christchurch area –

minimum purchase $30. Orders placed by

6pm will be delivered the following day,

Monday to Friday.

“We are finding that customers are

ordering a week’s worth of salads on a

Monday so they are set up for the week,”

says Ricki. “Our food speaks for itself. As

well as vegetables and proteins it contains

healthy carbs, so it keeps you full.”

Healthkicks also has a shop in

Avonhead, at 104 Staveley Street, phone

342 9541, where customers can purchase

items or pick up their orders. Business

hours are Monday 9am-1.30pm, Tuesday

to Friday, 6.30am-1.30pm.

REAL ESTATE

An Empty Nest

130 Hackthorne Road, Cashmere

6 bedrooms | 4 bathrooms | 4 toilets | 3 living rooms | 1 dining room | 1 office | 1 swimming pool | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing # BE192731

With the family having left home this

magnificent home is now simply too big

for the vendor. Quintessentially Cashmere

this superb home with sweeping views and

all day sun will please the most discerning

buyer. A superbly designed extension by

Sheppard and Rout has resulted in a six

bedroom, four bathroom, three living

room home retaining the style and charm

of its history whist giving the benefit of

modern day living. Step into the large

elegant entranceway and on into the large

family kitchen and dining room area

featuring beautiful timber floors and then

through to the family room. A large formal

wood panelled lounge is a wonderful

space to perhaps achieve a quiet area from

the bustle of family life. The adjoining

conservatory can also double as room

for teenagers, being big enough to take a

table tennis table. A media room complete

with speakers, projector and screen is a

great place to entertain family and friends,

perhaps after a bbq and swim in the heated

inground pool. But perhaps the real

surprise lies at the top of the house. Here

is a purpose-built workspace, generous

in size and ideal for those who wish to

work from home. There is room for three

people to comfortably work plus storage

space for samples or stock. Attention to

detail continues even into laundry and a

refrigerated cool room. The large private

grounds are a joy for the gardener with

expansive lawns and well established trees

and shrubs. You can sit on the deck and

admire your garden in these long summer

days to come. There is so much to see in

the house - call now to view your new

home.

of God.

period of advent. It begins on the

Sunday closest to the 30 November,

with the advent calendar counting

down the days to Christmas while the

advent wreath contains five candles

representing the Sundays before the

special day and one for Christmas

Day.

Joseph, a carpenter and Mary

had been travelling 90 miles from

Nazareth to Bethlehem; as Joseph was

required to participate in a Census

where the Roman rulers counted

the number of Jewish people for tax

purposes.

Heavily pregnant Mary had been

riding on a donkey. She gave birth in

a cave stable where they slept with

the animals due to there being no

room at the inn. The nativity scene

shows Jesus lying in a manger in the

stable; often re-enacted by children as

part of church services leading up to

Christmas Day with some churches

even having live animals as part of

this service.

A bright Star signalled the coming

of Christ and guided wise men who

took gifts of gold, frankincense

and myrrh to the new born while

shepherds were led there by an angel.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

services are a time for rejoicing the

birth of Christ when carols are sung

and there is much happiness.

We wish everyone a very merry Christmas and happy hoildays
