Jones ready

to stand

down over

community

centre

budget

• By Julia Evans

THE Papanui-Innes Community

Board could lose its chairwoman

if the budget for a Shirley

community centre is not included

in the Long Term Plan.

Nor’West News understands in

an elected member’s meeting at

the end of last year, chairwoman

Ali Jones said she would resign if

a replacement facility for the east

Innes Ward was not included in

the city council’s 2018-28 LTP.

When asked if she would stand

by this after the draft LTP was

released, Ms Jones said she would.

“I’m a woman of my word. I

don’t want to resign, I love my

job, I love what I do. But this is

how passionately I feel about the

community.”

In the draft LTP, the rebuild

for the centre at 10 Shirley Rd has

been proposed to be delayed for

10 years.

“After 10 more years, it will be

20 years since the earthquakes

and this hard hit community

hasn’t had a facility. That’s

totally unacceptable . . . we’ve

been lobbying to get it brought

forward.”

Supermarket expansion completed

20 new

jobs created

• By Julia Evans

A “REFURBISHED, rebranded

and extended” Edgeware Fresh

Choice has opened a number of

job opportunities for the closeknit

community.

Owner Stephen Anderson

said with the new-look store

including its expanded produce

and butchery, opening of a cafe

and new fully serviced deli with

bread, salads, slices and sandwiches

all made on-site, there

have been at least 20 new staff

employed.

“There’s cafe staff, there’s

cooks and now with the service

deli, we’ve had to employ more

people there. Most of them

come from the local area.”

Mr Anderson, his family and

staff have been working on planning

and executing the refurbishment

for more than a year.

There are still developments

in the pipeline including making

its own smallgoods, which

could see more jobs open up, he

said.

“The whole thing is an evolution

. . . there’s always improvements

to be made. I always say

if you’re standing still, you’re

probably moving backwards.”

Mr Anderson, a Northwood

local, has owned the store for

the last nine years. He’s always

been a part of the Edgeware and

St Albans Community.

“I started out renting here

when I was younger . . . I’ve

always been part of this neighbourhood.”

He saw the original building,

the former St Albans cinema,

being pulled down following the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

“Then we had all the roadworks

on top of that, which

affected the business for quite

a while. It’s good to extend the

supermarket and start bringing

the area back to life.”

But for Mr Anderson this

refresher is just the start of

an overall rejuvenation of the

Edgeware and St Albans area.

The city council and Papanui-

Innes Community Board are

working with the Edgeware

Business Association, which

Fresh Choice is a part of, to

develop an area master plan.

“We need to develop this

area because it is unique within

Christchurch. There aren’t many

of these villages left,” he said.

Mr Anderson said Edgeware

Village was one of the few places

in the city where you could go

and get everything you need.

“That gives it a real strong

community feel,” he said. There

are customers who shop there

weekly who Mr Anderson and

staff are on first name basis with.

“We have regulars who have

told us they used to come here

when it was a movie theatre and

they still shop here.”

This year the supermarket is

celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Mr Anderson said celebrations

were set to begin in May,

with a number of “fantastic

prizes” to be won.

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE

OF MICHELE...

One of my earliest memories

at four, had me dreaming one

day about saving animals

lives and thankfully my best

dream came true. In fact it

was cultivated by my parents

and veterinarian Dave

Marshall (my dad’s friend),

who let me see Practice with

him in Worchester street as

a little girl every holidays. My

parents moved onto some

land when I was young

basically so I could have a

horse and be surrounded by

animals, which I was. I would

never want to do anything

else, but sometimes my

job is tough, mentally and

physically and you think

about your patients 24/7. It’s

just the way it is for me and I

honestly wouldn’t want Kyza

to be any different.

The last couple of

weeks has seen some

real highs and lows for

me. All part of my role

as a vet, but I thought

I’d let you in on a

snippet of my life.

Today I laid to rest

“Kyza”, at his home in

the Cashmere hills. Kyza

had been a frequent

flyer of mine since I first vaccinated him in

August 2006 as a delightful, bouncy, super

cute little puppy. So for 12 years I’ve had a

close relationship with Kyza’s parents and

the man himself. To say he’s not been high

maintenance nor costly would be lying, but

when you meet this magnificent, funny,

gentle Boxer up close face to face, it’s not

hard to see why his family have given him

every opportunity for the “best’ life possible.

Kyza had undergone the scapel many times

– knee surgery, lump removals, castration

later in life, three operations to remove

urethral and bladder stones, grass seed

foreign bodies but what took the quality

from his life in the end was Congestive

Heart Failure, which he’d been battling for

a while. No matter what his visit was for,

he let me do anything I wanted as long as

liver treats and pats were part of the deal.

He knew my voice and would watch me

from the waiting room ready for his name

to be called. Right up until the end he was

incredibly stoic, trusting, clever (he had a

real knack of clamping his jaw as to avoid

more medications) and he still tried so

hard to please the humans he loved. He

was a legend and I know he’ll be greatly

missed, least of all by me. Today was lovely

as it should be. It was a 28 degree warm

summer’s day and Kyza was lying on the

lawn peacefully and close by were the

people he adored. He slipped off to sleep so

effortlessly and easily and believe it or not

he wagged his tail one last time as the drug

was being administered,

as if to say, “THANKS guys,

I’ve had a blast!

He wasn’t scared, he

looked safe and at peace.

As I popped him to sleep,

tears welled in my eyes.

26 years of practising

and sending animals off

into the next life, doesn’t

make me immune to

feeling sad at saying

goodbye to a true friend,

a patient I’ll not see again

nor have the privilege

of helping. My last act of

kindness and compassion

is to end their suffering

and discomfort and to

make those last moments

of life as kind and

respectful as I can for the

animal that has trusted in

my care all of its life.

On a high note, another fabulous

K9 “Charlie” a 7 year old golden

Cocker Spaniel, escaped death

which almost seemed inevitable

a few weeks ago. Charlie came as

a second opinion and was a very

sick dog with a gloomy future.

He had refused to eat for over 2

weeks, had chronic pneumonia,

kidney failure and white blood

cells higher than I’ve ever seen in

a dog in 26 years of practising. Our 10/10+

team of vets and nurses worked tirelessly

and lovingly, often out of hours, on Charlie

and we got to the bottom of his disease,

started the correct treatment plan and the

rest is history.

Collaboration with canine specialists, lots

of internet research and special and loving

owners that wanted to try “everything”,

gave us time to figure out the pieces to this

difficult puzzle.

So as you can see, no two days are the

same and each day brings with it extreme

pride and joy occasionally mixed with some

sadness.

BUT still being a “VET” is the best job EVER!!

Canterbury’s proposal

to cut six bus routes

from around the city,

including two in the

north-west

Sergio Toader – I’m

resident of Styx Mill/

Northwood area. I’m

writing to you in order to

express my concerns regarding

a possible cancellation

of the 107 bus route,

from the Northwood Supa

Centa to Northland Shopping

Centre.

This will have a huge

impact on my family,

as we use the bus on a

regular basis. Moreover,

for my daughter, year 9 at

Burnside High School, bus

107 is the only transport

available in the area from

and to school and home.

I’m sure there are some

business reasons for

cancelling the bus but we

must have an alternative.

Anywhere in the civilised

world, in 2018, public

transport is considered a

vital public service.

I hope the transport

company will understand

the situation and it will reconsider

the cancellation.

Also, I would like to thank

you for your time and effort

in making our voices

heard.

Diane Keith – I am

voicing my real concern

about the proposal to axe

the bus routes in Christchurch.

The routes that affect

me most are the 108 and

107 in the Casebrook and

Northwood areas.

My whole world fell

apart when I read Environment

Canterbury is

$4 million shortfall in its

budget.

There is only one week

left for the public to

make submissions on the

proposal, which is part

of ECan’s draft Long

Term Plan. ​

So far ECan has

received about 350

submissions on the plan.

The public can make

a submission on the

ECan website https://

www.ecan.govt.nz/yourregion/plans-strategiesand-bylaws/long-termplans/

proposing to axe six bus

routes.

I have lived in Highsted

Rd for 35 years. My

partner and I purchased

a house there and lived

with our family. As I do

not drive I have always

been reliant on the public

transport.

At that particular time I

had a short walk to catch

a bus in Veitches Rd to

get into the city and home

again for work. Due to personal

reasons I found myself

alone with my children

and we relied completely

on the public transport

service to get around.

In this time, the bus

service was re-routed and

a bus stop was available

directly across the road

from our house. I also had

the choice of being able

to catch two buses into

the city either by way of

Cranford St or by Papanui

Rd. Over the years the

bus route has changed but

the bus stop for 108 still

remains directly across the

road from me.

Then the earthquakes

and the 107 and 108 routes

were changed to a shuttle

running back and forth to

Northlands. That was still

okay for me as I patronise

the bus at least six or more

times a week. I also go to

Northlands and catch the

connecting Orbiter, Blue

confirmed.

Line and the 125 bus.

Yes, I have noticed a

drop-off in passengers

on the bus in this area

particularly around the

times 11am to 1pm but

there are still people using

the public transport early

in the morning to get to

work and also a lot of high

school students are on the

bus from 2.30pm onwards.

Only just last week I

counted 15 people on the

108 leaving Northlands

at 2.35pm. Eight of them

were high school students

and seven were adults. The

next day there were 14 on

the same bus route leaving

at 3.05pm. Six of these

passengers were adults the

balance were high school

students. I have noticed

there are still a number of

people catching the bus at

the weekend.

I think it is totally

ludicrous that ECan is

proposing to axe these services.

It will affect a huge

area without any form of

public transport at all. The

area will be in the inner

circle from Northlands

to Northwood and right

through basically to Harewood

Rd. People living

near the Main North Rd

and Harewood Rd should

not be so badly affected as

they can walk to the bus

stops there.

Surely ECan can come

up with some alternative

form of public transport in

this area.

Perhaps combining

route 108 and 107 or alternatively

reducing the 108

and 107 at off peak periods

to every hour.

Or better still they could

look at extending some of

the numerous buses that

go along the Main North

Rd.


NOR’WEST NEWS Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Tuesday March 20 2018 5

I am sure the 125 bus or the 28

bus could be extended to cover

from Northwood, Willowbank

and some of the inner circle

from the Main North Rd to

Northlands.

Has ECan looked into all the

building that is going on out this

way?

Also the new Summerset

Village that is being built at the

moment. Yes, they will be retired

adults catching the bus but the

bus fare is subsidised for adults

holding a Gold Card and, yes,

I am a Gold Card user now but

I certainly pay my way on the

other routes when Gold Cards

are not subsidised.

If they do axe the 108 route

I will have to walk from my

place at the Claridges Rd end

of Highsted Rd to Bishopdale

Village Mall on Harewood Rd

and that is at least a 30min walk

for me.

I suffer from arthritis, even

getting on and off the small

shuttles sometimes is a challenge,

but I do it because I have to. To

me it is my way of getting out and

about.

Sometimes, I have caught three

buses to where I have been going

but I do it because I have to.

I am extremely unhappy that

this may happen. I certainly

hope that ECan will look at other

options instead of axing these

routes or even extending bus 125

or bus 28 to cover for the 107 and

108 if they axe them.

LOCAL SERVICE: The 107 and 108 buses, which both go to

Northlands Shopping Centre, could be axed in Environment

Canterbury’s Long Term Plan.

Sabine Antoniu – I am

writing to you about the recent

proposal by ECan to cut two bus

routes in our area.

We live in Styx Mill/

Northwood and our daughter

takes bus 107 from here to

Northlands Shopping Centre

every day to get to school. She

is a student at Burnside High

School and there are no other

transport alternatives for her in

our neighbourhood.

Without this bus route, we will

need to investigate some other bus

alternatives which will definitely

involve us driving her early

morning to the closest bus stop.

Rubina Rehman Mistry –

This is with regards to the bus

107 or 108 from Northwood

which is due stopping in the

month of June-July this year.

I have been living in

Northwood for the past eight

years and my children (girl and

boy) have been using the 107 to

and from school.

My daughter is in her last year

of school at Papanui High School

and my son has just enrolled at

Ara, his first year. In saying this

my daughter will go to Ara next

year as well.

Both kids travel by the same

bus every day and especially my

son has to change to another bus

(Blue Line) from the Northlands

to Ara, which is pretty hectic

anyway, as they catch two

buses to go to, and two to come

home, plus the walk from the

exchange to Ara. If the bus 107 is

withdrawn they will have to walk

all the way to the other end of

Main North Rd to catch a bus. It

is going to be terrible for the kids

in this area if the bus ceases to

operate, extremely inconvenient.

ECan should understand that

there are a number of children

who live here and they at the least

can operate the mini bus 107

instead of the big massive buses

which they find uneconomical.

Elizabeth Hutton – Thank

you for the article in Nor’West

News re: the proposed bus

cuts. I am not so much affected

personally as I am not totally

dependent upon travelling on

the 107 bus route. However, the

bus route cuts will really affect a

number of elderly people whom

I know personally, who depend

on the bus as their means of

transport.

Among those affected are my

elderly blind neighbour who is

totally dependent on the 107 bus

to get around. I understand that

he was going in to lay a complaint

as he so much relies on the bus.

In addition, I was recently

travelling on the 107 and an

elderly passenger who had heard

about the proposed bus cuts was

very disturbed with the news.

The bus was the only thing he

could catch to get places.

Jones ready

to stand down

over budget

•From page 1

Ms Jones said it did not matter

what shape that facility took,

it was up to the community –

the city council just needed to

include some budget.

Ms Jones said most of the

budget for the Papanui and

Innes wards went into major

council projects like the Northern

Corridor, cycleways and

land drainage.

“We know that Linwood

needs a pool but they didn’t

have one before the earthquakes.

The community has

always had this centre,” she said.

Deputy chairwoman Emma

Norrish, board member Jo

Byrne and city councillor Mike

Davidson have all taken to

Facebook to share their disappointment

with the LTP, urging

residents to submit.

There will be a drop-in session

in the boardroom at the

Papanui Library tomorrow

from 6 to 8pm for the public to

discuss the LTP.

•Submission can also be

made at www.ccc.govt.nz/

A NEW $2.5 million Fendalton

water tank has hit an 18-month

Changes to the design following

December 2019 instead of this

June, city council manager land

drainage Keith Davison said.

“This is because of the change

of scope. The Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board’s approval is also

required for the use of land,” he

said.

The plans were changed by

the city council after neighbours

of the reserve expressed concern

with the concept designs.

“Key concerns and suggestions

from the Have Your Say

engagement carried out in September

and October were the

height of the tank and the affect

on neighbours, security issues,

visual impacts, use of existing

site, consideration for other

locations and lowering of tank

height,” Mr Davison said.

back out for community consultation

The former suction tank was

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake and needs to

be replaced to get local water

back to pre-quake flow rates.

But instead of replacing it

with the same 200 cu m tank,

Mr Davison said the city

council is “future proofing” the

pump station by increasing the

size to 500 cu m so it will last

for 100 years.

The redesign remains within

the $2.5 million budget, Mr

Davison said.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior

clients visit complaining of pain in one or

both hips.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a

back muscle could also be the cause, as

shown in the image.

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

and wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the hip, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the hip in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

FOCUS ON HEALTH

How to

keep your

brain

healthy!

Your brain is made up of over 60%

fatty acids and in particular mainly

DHA fatty acids. It has been shown

people with the lowest amount of DHA

have smaller brains and do worse on

tests of brain function. DHA is the

main nutrient required for your brain

to grow and function efficiently and

correctly. It allows the brain to renew

and rejuvenate itself. Studies have shown

when DHA levels increase in the brain

its function also improves leading to a

better memory and cleared thinking.

One study of 430 seniors who were

supplemented with DHA over 24 weeks

showed their memory and cognitive

function to almost double at the end of

the study. This shows how important

DHA is to a healthy brain. Other studies

have shown the brain is able to grow in

size and repair itself at any age when the

right conditions are available.

A new superfood for the brain has been

found. Calamari is a highly potent source

of DHA and is now available in an easy to

swallow capsule. It offers 4X more DHA

than standard fish oil but still offers a

good amount of EPA fatty acids that are

essential to help control inflammation

for joint and cardiovascular health.

Infectious diseases rife

in children between wars

Papanui Heritage Group chairman Murray Williams writes about

health problems that afflicted Papanui Primary School 90 years ago

IN THE period between

the wars (1919-39) primary

schools in New Zealand

faced many challenges,

although the most serious

was probably the on-going

problem of infectious

diseases.

The Papanui Primary

School committee records

of this period give much

interesting detail of the

way in which this school

was affected.

Diphtheria was a

particular problem in the

1920s.

This disease started

with a sore throat and was

transmitted by coughing

and sneezing and could

lead to fatal complications.

In February 1925, 27 per

cent of pupils at Papanui

were absent as a result of

this disease and in May

1926, the school was

closed for a week as the

epidemic flared up again.

Another potential killer

disease of this period was

scarlet fever which started

with a strep throat and

could lead to a severe rash

and persistent high fever.

Younger children were

particularly susceptible to

this complaint that could

be spread by poor personal

hygiene habits.

In November 1928,

pupils under 10 were

excluded for the rest of the

school year.

Measles epidemics were

rife in the interwar period.

For example, in 1934 the

problem was considered

so bad that the school was

closed for brief periods.

In 1938, the school

picnic was abandoned for

the same reason.

Perhaps the most feared

disease was infantile

authorities reacted to

the perceived danger.

Polio could lead to severe

muscle weakness, the loss

of mobility and extreme

cases could be fatal.

In the 1920s the

persistent absences of

afflicted students (and

those kept at home by

parents worried that

their children might

catch these diseases)

had another practical

consequence for Papanui

as the effective roll

reduction could lead to a

regrading of the school

and the loss of staffing.

The headmaster warned

the school committee of

this possibility in August

1928 and a year later the

Education Board advised

that the school was indeed

over-staffed.

The unfortunate Miss

Glass had to resign and the

school committee could

only note their sorrow

that she had been forced

to leave.

One benefit of

World War 2 was the

development of antibiotics

and these “miracle” drugs

proved effective against

the throat infections that

led to diphtheria and

scarlet fever.

With the exception

of scarlet fever all of

the diseases referred to

above are now part of the

National Programme of

Immunisation; children

are vaccinated during the

early childhood years to

ensure that epidemics that

endangered the health of

their great grandparents

are no longer a threat.

HOME & HEATING

Whether it be a new build, or

a retrofit, most homes include

at least one heat pump, if not a

whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are

much more convenient than a log

burner as you just need to press a

button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right

sized heat pump is key to ensuring

optimum comfort levels. Every

situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional

advice from heat pump experts.

The range varies from wall

mounted high walls, floor mounted systems,

multi systems, ceiling cassettes, right through

to ducted central heating systems allowing

you to have a very discreet way of heating

your whole home to a constant temperature

throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that is

suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it is

important to select

the correct size for

NOR’WEST NEWS

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

Heating is a major

investment in your home

and it is vital to get the

right advice.

your requirements

that will handle

the job but not

be unnecessarily

overpowered.

Secondly, the

location of your

heat pump is also extremely important. The

cheapest installation is a back to back where

the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind

the indoor unit however this is not necessarily

always the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of

systems and price, so it depends on your

application as to which will be most suitable.

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are

all reliable brands backed up by good technical

after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but also

validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to

consider when

choosing a heat pump

are time clocks, ease

of use of the remote

controllers, air

filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

Heating is a major

investment in your home and it is vital to get

the right advice.

HOME & HEATING

Bathroom ventilation

The extraction of air from the bathroom

should be a priority for all houses and

commercial buildings.

Bathrooms can generate a large quantity

of steam and odours. It is important this

compromised air does not circulate around

the house.

Bathroom odours can be unpleasant, especially

when near living, sleeping or working areas.

The moisture generated by showers and

baths can be damaging to your home and

furnishings and be a major contribution to

condensation. Damp houses are not a healthy

environment for anyone to live in, especially

for children or other vulnerable people.

By extracting air from the bathroom to

outside, warmer air from inside the house will

move in to the bathroom. Whereas opening a

window can draw cold air into the bathroom

and blow the smelly, moisture laden bathroom

air into the house.

Modern houses are built to be very airtight

and require mechanical ventilation such as

extraction fans or heat exchanger systems.

Although older houses can be draughty, the air

often flows in the wrong direction. Therefore,

they also usually require mechanical

ventilation to keep the air quality higher.

The quality of the air we breathe affects our

health and ability to perform. We breathe

in and out approximately 20,000 litres of

air every day. It is therefore very important

to ensure good air quality indoors through

adequate ventilation.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact the

experts. Smooth-Air Products can calculate

the required extraction for your bathrooms,

and look into air exchange for your whole

building. Smooth-Air offers a wide range

of ventilation equipment, from air vents to

ducting for fans, for both the commercial and

domestic markets. They have an extensive

range of fans and ventilation components

Personalised

treatment

for every patient

At Better Denture in Hornby, the focus is firmly on providing a

customised service for every individual patient, whether they

require new or replacement dentures.

All the dentures are manufactured in-house, which

resulting in a personalised approach for everyone,

owner Chris Castle says.

Himself an experienced Clinical Dental Technician,

Chris explains that the materials used at Better

Denture are of a higher quality than the standard

denture materials, so patients can be assured their

dentures will stay looking good and provide longlasting

service.

“We also help people with the upkeep of their

dentures so they get the best from them,” he says.

The follow-up service is another notable feature of

Better Denture, with patients’ dentures being checked

in the few weeks after being fitted to make sure they

clinic is friendly and welcoming, and patients are free

to bring someone with them for support if they wish.

Art Trail inspired

by local stories

LOCAL artmakers present their

works at an exciting Art Trail taking

place over 5 sites in Wakaroa Pigeon

Bay on Easter Weekend.

“e trail was inspired by my

mum’s stories of growing up in

Pigeon Bay,” explained artist and

event orgniser, Keren Oertly. “She

always spoke of her childhood as a

time of formation, of connection and

belonging. I was interested to explore

these ideas of identity in relation to

place through my research and work

towards a Masters in Fine Arts at the

Ilam School of Fine Art in 2017. e

community in the Bay was incredibly

supportive and generous throughout

this process – none of this would be

possible without them.”

Based on stories shared by the Bay

community and utilising materials from the

Bay wherever possible, these site-specific

and audience responsive art works seek to

celebrate the life and stories of the Bay. e

main exhibition takes place at the Pigeon

Bay Hall with additional artworks installed

along the way from the Summit Rd/Pigeon

Bay Rd bus shelter, to Knox Church yard, the

Pigeon Bay Boating Club, and Wakaroa

Point.

In conjunction with the Art Trail there is a

free public programme of workshops
