10 Tuesday June 20 2017 Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi SELWYN TIMES ocal Views News We said: Jaz Tuihana Vivian has a label called Losers Are Cool – and her clothing is all gender neutral. You said: Kirsty Tovey – Love this. My daughter Isla stood in a shop once when she was six and asked me why all the girls clothes were pink or purple and covered in butterlies and flowers. She didn’t want to wear any of those. So we headed over to the boys department and she has been wearing boys clothes ever since, she is now almost nine. I love the idea of gender neutral clothes, well done Jaz. Cathryn Lucy – Unfortunately women can’t wear “boys” clothes forever to have the style they like, unless their body shape allows for it. Would be so good to have more styles accessible for women but made for our bodies. Jasmin Raddon – Yes. My girl has been wearing “boys” clothes for years – it is just starting to be a bit stressful now – as she is now 13 and male clothing does not really account for boobs and hips. Would love to see gender neutral clothing widespread and available everywhere, so shopping can be fun for those who fall outside of gender “norms.” Georgie Southen – Hey. Gender neutral is a simple concept for kidswear, but for adults how do you deal with the aspect of fit? As male and female bodies are different shapes. Jill Reesby – My daughter is a tomboy too, hates the girly stuff and, yes, we buy boys clothing. She is now 11 and luckily is very slim with no curves yet. Even I buy men’s clothing and shoes when I can, unfortunately I come with extreme curves, lol. Cathryn Lucy – The only difference that there actually needs to be is with the tailoring. Awesome idea. Man Dee Nurse – You are awesome Jaz. Call for more cemeteries •From page 1 Mr Pearcy told Selwyn Times if someone from outside the Rolleston township supported the cemetery, it could not be classed as an organisation thinking of themselves. “It is about putting aside for a piece of land so people have somewhere to go,” Mr Pearcy said. His comments were backed by Rolleston Residents Association committee chairwoman Leonie MacLachlan and Rolleston Community Centre committee chairman Edward Ellens. “I don’t think we need it at the moment but we will in the future,” Mrs MacLachlan said. Mr Ellens said it was not a bad idea with the way Rolleston was growing. In the past five years, the district council recorded in its maintained cemeteries there was an increase in the number of deaths from 120 in 2013 to 141 by 2017. The council’s open space and property manager Mark Rykers said the statistics were not recorded to show deaths in specific areas and people in POPULATION GROWTH: Shands Rd Cemetery (above) and Weedons Cemetery are the closest cemeteries to Rolleston township. Rolleston may choose to use a number of cemeteries. The district council estimated in the last Long Term Plan (2015-25) most existing cemeteries had a capacity of 50 years or more apart from Prebbleton and Springston cemetery. “There will likely be a trend to a greater proportion of cremations to burials as the district becomes more urbanised,” Mr Rykers said. Mr Rykers said while there is no specific land identified for a cemetery, land purchased earlier this year for a large scale park in Rolleston on the corner of Weedons and Levi Rds could be used for this purpose. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think Rolleston needs a new cemetery?
