The Star Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Thursday April 27 2017 7 News War memorial meeting • By Bridget Rutherford MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel is arranging a meeting to ensure options to move the Citizens’ War Memorial are developed as a “matter of priority.” Christchurch Memorial RSA wants the cenotaph moved from Cathedral Square to Cranmer Square, where Anzac Day commemorations are now held, in time for Armistice Day, 2018. “I spoke Lianne Dalziel to members of the RSA yesterday [Anzac Day] and have undertaken to arrange a meeting between them, council staff and Regenerate Christchurch to ensure that options for the possible relocation of the cenotaph are developed as a matter of priority,” Ms Dalziel told The Star. “Options would need to spell out the feasibility of the move, the cost and who would pay.” Paul O’Connor, who is spearheading the relocation project, said he spoke to Ms Dalziel, which was encouraging. “I’m picking from what she PROGRESS: Mayor Lianne Dalziel is organising a meeting to ensure options to relocate the Citizens’ War Memorial are developed. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER said she’s not going to let it lie.” The memorial sits on Anglican Diocese land, but it is the responsibility of the city council. It had been fenced off since the February 22, 2011, earthquake, until Tuesday when some exservicemen were allowed temporary access to lay a wreath. Because of its heritage listing, resource consent would be needed to move it. City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said until they could access the cenotaph to do a full invasive investigation, it was unknown whether it could be moved. Ms Dalziel acknowledged its current location was significant, because it asserted the cultural connection between the cenotaph, Cathedral and the square. •Letters, page 13 Mother on a crusade for hospital chairs • By Bridget Rutherford WHEN nine-week-old Jack Triplow was admitted to the children’s ward with a virus three years ago, his mum Joanna did not leave his side. He spent seven days in hospital – five of which were in the paediatric high dependency unit – and Mrs Triplow, and husband Brad, realised the furniture was uncomfortable and difficult to move. She slept on a fold-out bed that only a nurse could set up, while other parents in the ward slept on wooden chairs. “You just don’t leave your babies when they’re in HDU.” Now, she and her friend Renee Jones are fundraising to buy 12 hospital-standard recliners and pull-out beds to make families’ stays more comfortable. It took more than three years to find furniture that was antibacterial, reliable, able to be fixed in Christchurch and on wheels so it could be moved easily. They have found two suitable models – a recliner, and pull-out bed – made by local company Alloyfold. Two recliner chairs – donated by Marshland School and a family – have been installed in PHDU. The chairs cost $1500 plus GST. Having somewhere comfortable to sit or sleep was one less thing parents had to worry about, she said. “Honestly, you just can’t put it into words. The emotions that you go through seeing your baby in hospital. We were lucky, we were only in there for a week.” •If you would like to donate to the cause or buy a chair, visit fundraiser/12chairsforhdu or email joannatriplow@gmail. com Still trying to get your EQ damage or repair issues sorted We’ve helped hundreds of homeowners get what their policy promises.
