Bugman’s work with nature recognised

• By Emily O’Connell

MORE THAN 50 years ago a

very young Ruud Kleinpaste

had a pair of binoculars and a

curiousity for birds.

Now the Halswell resident has

been recognised for his services

to entomology, conservation and

He shares his passion with

others because he wants people

to learn about nature – not for

“Honoured is probably the

best way to describe it,” Dr

Kleinpaste said.

Early in his career Dr Kleinpaste

Police

find teens

accused

of ‘drown

him’ case

• By Andrew King

POLICE HAVE caught two

teenagers accused of being

involved in the Rolleston ‘drown

him’ assault case.

The assault took place on

November 4 after a fireworks

display.

The police has had a difficult

task determining who was

involved in the incident due to a

lack of co-operation.

A 15-year-old says he was

punched and kicked and then

dragged to a water race, and had

his head held under water while

his attackers chanted “drown

him.”

Two youths, aged 15 and 16,

have been referred to youth aid, a

police spokeswoman said.

A youth aid officer will

review the case, meet with the

victim and alleged offenders

and determine the best course

of action, which could include

charges.

Police are not seeking anyone

else in relation to the assault

which left the victim with a

nasty gash on his face that

required stitches and a night in

hospital.

I’M NOT sure if it was our photographer

Martin Hunter, bugman Ruud Kleinpaste,

or a very compliant tree weta.

But that photo on the front page today is

pretty damn good.

Martin, I’m sure would put it down to great workmanship,

and I wouldn’t disagree given the top pix he turns out day after

day.

Martin is a photographer who has an instant visualisation of

what and how an image should look like well before he begins to

shoot. But enough of the photographer.

Top marks to Ruud for making the New Years Honours list.

We feature him, and other local recipients, in today’s issue.

Rudd has been around the bug world for a long time,

featuring regularly in magazines and TV documentaries and

other media.

Ruud has had a fascination for nature since he was a boy

with a pair of binoculars. Decades on he has made a career out

of it.

At the other end of the age spectrum Tigerlilly Perry (see

page 3) is pursuing her dream with the Young Shakespeare

Company.

Tigerlilly is off to the Globe in London and then onto

Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, to perform.

She and Cashmere’s Ben Kelly are the only two from

Christchurch in the company.

The world is their oyster.

Fun things to do during the summer holidays

A little thought will fill your family’s summer with lots of fun activities from games in the park to

skateboarding, or discovering some interesting places around the district such as the Christchurch Gondola.

Bugman’s work with nature recognised with honour

•From page 1

Dr Kleinpaste then worked on the children’s

series The Early Bird Show before

becoming Bugman on Maggie’s Garden

Show.

In the 2000s he worked on the documentary

film The Bughouse, the Animal Planet

documentary World’s Biggest Baddest Bugs

and the 13-part series Buggin’ with Ruud.

Dr Kleinpaste currently works an

ecological consultant and is a trustee of

Project Crimson, Kiwis for Kiwi, Air New

Zealand Environment Trust, Kids Restore

New Zealand and the Omaha Shorebird

Protection Trust.

He’s a patron of the Little Barrier Island

Supporters Trust, National Wetland Trust,

Trees for Survival, Southland Community

Environment Trust and Wingspan.

Suprisingly though, Dr Kleinpaste never

studied bugs.

“It’s always been a hobby and I love it

and that’s probably the best message to

anybody especially children,” he said.

Dr Kleinpaste said the best thing about

his job is telling stories.

He said humans can learn a lot from

nature as it’s the best classroom.

Shakespearean stage beckons

Actress off

to London’s

Globe Theatre

• By Julia Evans

“ROMEO, ROMEO, wherefore

art thou Romeo?”

Tigerlily Perry may soon

be reciting the famous

Shakespearean quote at the

theatre his plays were first

performed in four centuries ago.

Although Romeo and Juliet isn’t

her favourite play.

“It’s a tie between Much Ado

About Nothing and Julius Caesar,”

she said.

The 17-year-old Papanui

resident and former St

Margaret’s College student is

hoping to send her acting career

into overdrive after landing a

coveted spot in the New Zealand

Young Shakespeare Company.

From more than 5000 applicants,

Tigerlily was selected

as one of the 24 students who

will fly to London to perform

at the Globe Theatre. Only one

other student from Christchurch

made the cut, Cashmere’s Ben

Kelly.

workshops and talks at the

Globe before heading north

to Shakespeare’s birthplace,

Stratford-upon-Avon.

“It’s really exciting thinking

about performing there.”

Tigerlily said she expects it

will be “life-changing.”

Although the trip isn’t until

July, Tigerlily is already hard at

work fundraising for the $8500

it will take to get her there.

“I’ve been doing odd jobs,”

she said. But a funding grant

of $1000 from the Shakespeare

Globe Centre New Zealand has

been “amazing,” she said.

It comes after her recent role

as the lead in the international

award-winning film, A Perfect

Child, made by Christ’s College

and St Margaret’s students.

“I’ve always been into acting.

It started with the Shakespeare

festival at school,” she said.

Her mother was an actress,

although never professionally.

“Mum was an actress, she

exposed me to that world and

it developed when I was a kid,”

she said.

Tigerlily grew up with a

love of reading play scripts –

something she always thought

was “a bit weird.”

She has played Paulina and

Hermione in The Winter’s Tale,

Mark Antony in Anthony and

Cleopatra, Trebonius from Julius

Caesar and has taken the lead in

Timon of Athens, Timon.

But she couldn’t pick a

favourite. Instead, she’s hoping

to add new characters to her

repertoire at the Globe in July.

Volunteers sought to look after park

Coming into

summer,

Abberley

Park is the

best place

in St Albans

to picnic

and enjoy

the sunshine. Friends of

Abberley Park member

Patricia Wallace writes

about taking care of the

amenity

WHEN Christchuch’s summer

arrived in the first week of

December, families came out in

droves and hit Abberley Park.

They came in cars, on bikes,

with scooters and pushchairs.

They came in family groups,

with picnics to enjoy in the

park’s green spaces. They came

to the new playground, to the

scented garden and to the toddlers’

playground and paddling

pool.

They came with picnic chairs,

portable barbecues and dogs too.

There was at least one wedding,

and special photographic

settings for some local kindergarten

children.

Small wonder, for local

residents, the Abberley Heritage

Park and Garden is a very

special place – a true gem in the

neighbourhood.

And that is no accident, a

small group of regular visitors

have been playing a part.

The Friends of Abberley Park

is a local group that was formed

with community board approval

a year ago.

It grew as a result of people

sharing observations as they

walked their dogs around the

park every day after work.

Their major goals include the

replenishment of the scented

garden that had been neglected

for many years, and support for

the monarch butterfly colony

that is at risk of declining.

There is now a small core of

committed volunteers who help

to maintain the park, undertaking

tasks such as painting the

seats, picking up litter, helping

halt the invasive spread of acanthus,

monitoring damage and

reporting vandalism.

With council help, they coordinated

the recent Mad Winter

Picnic in conjunction with

community plantings when the

new playground was completed

– with the aim of encouraging

more people to become involved

with caring for the park.

Watering the garden is a major

task. As summer advances, it becomes

more critical – but until

now, it has been undertaken by

just three women (one of whom

works full-time, the others are

in their 70s).

The friends need more help –

are you prepared to volunteer?

But as the holiday season

approaches and daily use of the

park escalates, the friends ask

for even more community help.

Council signage asks that

users ‘look after the plants and

facilities’, and ‘do not engage in

dangerous activities or create a

nuisance to other park users or

neighbouring residents’.

Increased park usage simply

requires everyone to show more

consideration for each other.

So the Friends ask everyone to

please:

•Try to keep pushchairs and

cycles, within the 1m perimeter

NEW: The

paddling pool.

boundary when using the playground,

to enable other park

users unhindered access to the

green space.

•Advise families who take

their pets that dogs are not allowed

on the playground, in fact

not within 1m of playgrounds.

Nor are dogs permitted within

the paddling pool area.

•Discourage people from

parking cycles against park

benches or loading them with

gear that prevents other park users

from sitting on them.

•Teach children not to walk

or ride on the gardens or to pick

the flowers.

•Remind folk that keeping

cars out of the park and not

treating pathways like trail-bike

tracks are public safety issues.

•If you would like to become

involved, please contact

Fire rages, homes at risk

Readers respond to city

councillor Mike Davidson’s

bid to reinstate Papanui

Bush, a native forest

chopped down by settlers in

the 19th-century

Jonathon Chambers – I am

definitely supportive of this proposal

and any proposal to create

new areas of native bush within

the north or north-west part of

the city. Attracting more native

bird life into the north western

suburbs and Christchurch in

general is something I would love

to see over the coming decades.

Also, the ability to connect with

nature via walking tracks within

regenerating bush would be

welcome in this part of the city. I

would like to point out the plans

for a large area of regenerating

native forest and wetland that is

planned for the Cranford basin.

The Papanui bush regeneration

project would certainly compliment

this but I would hope that

the Cranford basin project would

take precedence if they were at

all competing for resources as the

Cranford basin is a much larger

area with greater potential for

achieving the aims of increased

native biodiversity and bird life.

I note that city councillor Mike

Davidson stated start up capital of

$10,000 was needed. I wonder if

the council is able to tap into the

Labour-led Governments’ plans

to have one billion trees planted

in the next decade to obtain some

funding for the above projects.

Kathleen Crisley

– This is the same city

councillor who during his

election campaign said he

would look at trimming

the non-essentials from the

council budget so that rates

were kept in check. The

problem is, once elected,

those that sit at the council

table all come up with pet

projects, all for ‘just’ a few

thousand dollars. In postquake

Christchurch, we

have to sharpen our pencils

their belts to fund rates

Papanui for almost 20 years

with nothing more than

a historic marker in the

years until the council and

a lot of the expenses for

earthquake recovery.

but it should be in the red

the Burwood Park club.

He will also compete in the

doubles with fellow Cantabrian

should be in with a chance to win

a title.

teams to the event.

SUMMER FUN AND HOLIDAY GUIDE

Summer holiday fun

COMMUNITY NEWS

A little thought will fill your family’s summer with lots of fun activities from games in the park

to skateboarding or discovering some interesting places around the district and in the city

Cricket and picnic in the park:

There are numerous parks and

domains around the district. Many

have shelter and great facilities making

them ideal for a picnic and a game of

cricket, touch, soccer, rugby or tennis.

Really pleasant domains can be found

at Greendale, Kirwee, Motukarara and

Sheffield, to name just a few so why

not explore the countryside and see

what you can find.

For a list of the district’s parks,

reserves and playgrounds, visit: www.

selwyn.govt.nz/facilities-and-parks/

parks-reserves-and-open-spaces.

Fun on wheels:

Skate Parks can be found at Darfield,

Prebbleton and Rolleston while

Doyleston has a great BMX track.

Discovering Selwyn’s history

Glentunnel – Learning about local

history can be fun especially if there

is some play in the day. Early life in

the district and war displays are both

featured at the Glentunnel Museum.

Greendale – Almost forgotten is

T W Adam’s Arboretum at Greendale.

Your children may enjoy exploring its

wilderness before heading down to the

domain for some play.

Akaroa – Rich in history to fascinate

young and old, is this French and

Colonial town. There is an impressive

museum, 19th century lighthouse,

historic canon and whale cooking

pots along the foreshore. Walk to the

French settlers’ memorial, through the

Garden of Tane where there is a small

and rather historic playground, or

through the Cemetary to see many old

headstones. Dine at a café or eat fish

and chips on the waterfront, engage

in a little boutique shopping, and have

fun at the skate park or with a game on

the large sports field.

Okain’s Bay – Worth a visit is

the Okain’s Bay Maori & Colonial

Museum followed by a dip in the sea

or tidal inlet at high tide.

Libraries

Encourage your children to read by

visiting a local library. District libraries

are in Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and

Rolleston with a library bus visiting

other towns.

SUMMER FUN

A day in the city

Head into the city or to one of the Pegasus Bay beaches.

Take a ride on the Gondola, tram or paddle on the Avon River

before visiting the Botanical Gardens or Margaret Mahy Family

playgrounds, a popular outing for the young and not so young.

If the weather is inclement, a visit to the Canterbury Museum

will offer hours of interest.

Get to know your neighbours

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

NOT KNOWING your

next door neighbour can

be a common reality in

populated areas across

Canterbury.

But that is not the case

for a tight-knit community

at Monet Vale in Rolleston.

The street of 24 houses

have been making the

most of the district

council’s Meet Your Street

initiative which encourages

the neighbours to get to

know each other.

About 30 residents on

Monet Vale scored a free

barbecue from the district

council recently.

As part of the initiative,

the district council has

been encouraging residents

to organise and run their

own street gatherings and

barbecues.

A subsidy of up to $75

is available for each street

gathering.

The district council is

also travelling with its

mobile barbecue to 18 locations

across Selwyn over

the summer.

Resident Yvonne Otto

said her street is very

MAKING CONNECTIONS: Families at Monet Vale in

Rolleston getting to know their neighbours. ​

friendly she has loved living

in Rolleston since she

and her husband moved

from Christchurch last

year.

“We have got a real

community which we

haven’t had for years . . . we

found Christchurch really

cold actually socially,” she

said.

Mrs Otto said she and

her husband left their

home in Riccarton,

Christchurch after it

became a “terrible area for

student parties, drugs and

alcohol.”

Mrs Otto said they lived

in Riccarton for 20 years,

but they along with five

other families decided to

move out of the area last

year.

But she said she is

thrilled to be out in Rolleston.

LAZY Sundays are back and Oakley

Grenell headlines at the event launch this

Sunday from 3.30pm in the Christchurch

Botanic Gardens.

Acoustic guitar and vocals is the

perfect soundtrack to chill to on your

Sunday, and to kick off the Ingham's Lazy

Sundays 2018 programme!

Oakley will fluently blend blues and

contemporary soul, with a dash of his

country roots thrown in. We are lucky to

have Christchurch jazz super group

Departure Lounge to guest.

Having released an 11th album in NZ,

Oakley will perform originals from his

back catalogue and a few covers thrown

in for good measure.

Over the years Grenell has supported

Ben Harper, Salmonella Dub, Ce Fu, and

has also worked with a host of local and

international talent collaborating on all

his projects.
