12 Tuesday January 10 2017 News SELWYN TIMES How you spell the Cathedral Christchurch, ChristChurch . . . or is it Christ Church? • By Gabrielle Stuart A QUESTION over the spelling of Christ Church Cathedral has left even the Anglican Diocese itself confused. The diocese sent out a media release last week to say an announcement on the fate of the Cathedral, which was expected before Christmas, would be delayed. But in the media release, the name was spelt two ways, as Christchurch Cathedral and ChristChurch Cathedral. It is also spelt two different ways on the Anglican Diocese website. There are several Christ Church Cathedrals in the United Kingdom, including in Dublin, Newcastle and Oxford. The Cathedral in Nelson is also called Christ Church Cathedral. When asked which spelling was correct, diocese media MISSPELT: The spelling of Christ Church Cathedral has even confused the Anglican Diocese. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN spokesman Jayson Rhodes said he would have to check with Bishop Victoria Matthews. But Cathedral administrator Chris Oldham had an answer. He said the official name was Christ Church Cathedral, named after the Cathedral in Oxford which also inspired its design. Victoria Matthews He said “ChristChurch Cathedral” was a brand name, as the designers had combined the name of the city and of the Cathedral. “We put the cap C in the middle of the word when we designed a new logo about 10 to 12 years ago,” he said. Rev Rhodes said he would continue to use the ChristChurch Cathedral spelling, in spite of it not being the official name. But he said the Christchurch Cathedral spelling was an error. He said the incorrect spellings on the website might be changed, but that was a lower priority. “You’ve got the issue of how to spell it, and the issue of how to rebuild it,” he said.

SELWYN TIMES Tuesday January 10 2017 13 News Call to recycle waste Happy New year Take your furniture from shabby to chic! SUMMER IS the season of parties and barbecues but the district council is encouraging residents to recycle bottles and cans to help the environment by reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. District council solid waste manager Andrew Boyd said the volume of household waste recycled in Selwyn had been steadily increasing from 3901 tonnes in the year to June 2014 to 4982 tonnes in the year to June 2016. “It’s great to see the increase in recycling,” Mr Boyd said. “Over the holidays people often generate more recyclables. To help maximise recycling over this period we have provided some answers to common questions we receive about what you can and can’t recycle.” Soft plastics including newspaper wrap and cling film can’t be recycled through the kerbside recycling system, only empty supermarket plastic bags are accepted. All recyclable items must be loose in your yellow bin so they can be easily separated for recycling, not placed inside a plastic bag, as the machinery that sorts COLLECTION TIME: The district council is reminding Selwyn residents to make sure they are putting the right items into their recycling bin. ​ recycling rejects bagged items as rubbish. Takeaway coffee cups have a thin plastic coating on the inside, so that they can hold liquid. For this reason they can’t be recycled and need to be put into the rubbish bin. Drinking glasses or crockery also can’t be recycled – these differ from glass bottles and end up contaminating the recyclable glass. “It’s important that recyclable containers are empty and are clean before you put them into your recycle bin,” Mr Boyd said. Gift wrapping paper can be recycled to reduce the amount of Christmas rubbish your household creates. •For a full list of what you can’t and can’t recycle, visit www.selwyn.govt. nz/kerbsideguide, or you can request a free sticker for your recycling bin with this information by contacting the district council on 347 2857 or 318 8338.
