A PASSION for bringing life

into her community has seen

Hayley Guglietta recognised as

a local hero.

Mrs Guglietta has lived in

Richmond for 26 years, and

last week she was announced

as a Kiwibank local hero medal

winner.

“I feel very proud to receive

this award, it is recognition for

all the people that have come

together in Richmond and central

Christchurch to tackle what

have been some very tough

issues,” she said.

Mrs Guglietta and her

husband own an IT business in

the suburb, called Akiva, and

she said the staff at the business

support her in her volunteer

work. •Turn to page 4

Call to

transform

Plunket

building

into toilets

• By Claire Booker

BISHOPDALE business owners

want to see the soon-to-bedemolished

former Plunket rooms

turned into upmarket public

toilets.

But the city council has no plans

to upgrade the toilets at the mall.

An earthquake-damaged

former Plunket building is being

demolished by the city council,

but one business owner thinks the

building should be revamped as a

toilet facility.

My Mens Store Bishopdale

owner Barry Souter said the

former Plunket building would

have been a great spot for a ladies

toilet and family room.

“It would be easy to bring it up

to earthquake standards,” Mr

Souter said.

THe sign on the fences

surrounding the building say

it is surplus to city council

requirements.

Said Mr Souter: “They may

be surplus to the council

requirements, but they are not

surplus to the needs Bishopdale

and the users of the mall.

Charity gift shop moves out

• By Claire Booker

COMMUNITY activities in

Mairehau could suffer due to a

loss of funding as a charity gift

shop moves out of the suburb.

Pay it Forward which has

been in the suburb for the last

six years, is moving to a pop-up

store in Cashel St.

Part of the shop’s commission

went to the Neighbourhood

Trust which runs community

events in Mairehau.

Last year, about $13,000 went

to the Neighbourhood Trust,

which funds community events

and workshops, including a free

class for non-English speaking

people in the area.

About 40 heavily subsidised

craft and Kidsfest classes

were held last year, and Pay It

Forward founder Ginny Larsen

said it will be a loss for some

members of the community who

used the craft classes as a creative

outlet.

Mrs Larsen said it will be

up to the Neighbourhood

Trust to apply for funding to

keep the community projects

going.

Said Mrs Larsen: “I wouldn’t

expect them to fold.”

Pay It Forward will no longer

be under the Neighbourhood

Trust umbrella, and it will rebrand

as the Kowhai Collective

at its new pop-up store next to

Ballantynes.

‘I guess Pay It Forward was

my baby’

– Ginny Larsen

The Nancy Ave site where the

gift shop was will continue to be

used as a community space, but

Neighbourhood Trust manager

Trudy Hedges said there are no

plans for what it will be used for

yet.

Mrs Larsen said the shop

moving out of Mairehau is like a

teenager leaving home.

“I guess Pay It Forward

was my baby, and now it is

reaching young person age and

is ready to flee the nest,” Mrs

Larsen said.

Said Mrs Larsen: “The new

space will have makerspaces in

it, so visitors to our store will be

able to interact with designers

LAST

Collective.

SLOAN ​

and watch them making the

goods on display for sale. We

love this new concept.

“The local community has

loved having something beautiful

in their neighbourhood and

it has been a place for them to

pop in and have a chat. The

Neighbourhood Trust has

provided us with a home for the

past six years and we will miss

this community, but the CBD

will be accessible to people from

all parts of town,” she said.

In Brief

WATER RESTRICTIONS

Residents in St Albans, Merivale,

Mairehau, Papanui and Edgeware

will have water restrictions for

at least three to four weeks in

January. The level one restrictions

mean hoses, sprinklers and

garden irrigation systems are

permitted on alternate days. The

restrictions will allow a deeper

well to be drilled at the Grassmere

pump in Papanui.

SAFETY TALK

Last week, police, Fire and

Emergency NZ and St John

spent a morning at the Bishopdale

Village Mall to meet residents,

share a hot drink and talk about

safety. More than 100 hot drinks

were purchased at the event.

Police and FENZ also visited

houses on Breens Rd where

they helped install new smoke

alarms and checked on home

safety.

CHOIR CONCERT

The annual concert for The

Vocal Collective will be held on

Saturday at St Margaret’s College.

Local charities have been invited

to a free matinee performance,

and more than 450 free tickets

have already been allocated.

Tickets can be purchased from

https://thevocalcollective.co.nz/

the concert is set to start at

7.30pm.

Award recognition for

local hero volunteers

•From page 1

When she isn’t working on the

business, she’s busy at Avebury

House, helping in the Richmond

community garden, volunteering

for Alzheimer’s Canterbury

and being the chairwoman of

the Richmond Business and

Residents Association.

Mrs Guglietta’s involvement

with Alzheimer’s Canterbury came

after her mother died after eight

years of suffering from the disease.

“I wanted to give back and

have been a companion volunteer

supporting others who are in

the early stages of Alzheimer’s

in order to help them remain in

their homes as long as possible,”

she said.

A key passion of Mrs Guglietta

is advocating for Richmond to

stay within the Shirley Boys’

and Avonside Girls’ high school

zones, in spite of the fact she does

not have children.

Mrs Guglietta said challenges

she has overcome in life are what

led her to become involved with

her community.

“I had always wanted to be a

successful business person with

tonnes of money and the trappings

that come with that, but

the earthquakes, not being able

to have my own family and the

journey with my mum’s illness

significantly impacted me and

completely changed my world

view,” she said.

Upcoming projects for Mrs

Guglietta include work on the

Avon River corridor, which will

have an interactive kids trial,

nature and heritage trails, and a

community cafe to provide jobs

for locals.

“We have just taken ownership

of another piece of land called

the garden of curiosities where

we will grow foods that people

eat but may not have ever seen

grow such as peanuts, gourds and

heritage varieties of vegetables,”

Mrs Guglietta said.

Mrs Guglietta is also working

on a social enterprise to deliver

a school education programme

based on the importance of pollinators

in the environment.

“I am pretty excited about the

opportunities and projects we

have planned for the next few

years that will ultimately benefit

not just Richmond but all the

people of Christchurch,” she said.

“If you’re going to run

a shopping centre, you

had better have good,

clean toilets. But at

the moment, they just

aren’t adequate.

“It’s a permanent

issue in Bishopdale,

these are the things that

stop people going.”

THe city council has been

making improvements to the

Bishopdale area, but Mr Souter

said there is still more to be done

to bring people back to the mall.

“If [the city council] was really

genuine about it, they would

make toilets a priority, because

that’s what brings people to a

mall,” he said.

it is 12 per cent of building code,

“THere are currently no

plans to upgrade the toilets at

Bishopdale Mall. The toilets

will be part of our next round

and will be prioritised alongside

other toilet blocks based on

Eco-friendly food wrap wins award

• By Claire Booker

DIRECTORS: The Christchurch Girls’ High School Azul team won an award at the Young

Enterprise Scheme regional awards last week. Team members (from left) Huda Abdulridha, Lina

Eljindi, Strev Balmoria, Nicka Pascual, Caryl Cerro accepted the award. ​

AN ECO-friendly alternative to

plastic food wrap designed by

Christchurch Girls’ High School

enterprise students has been

recognised as one of the best

products in the region.

The company, called Azul won

the Rotary Club of Christchurch

Sunrise YES Regional Excellence

Award for Social Enterprise at

the Young Enterprise Scheme

regional awards last fortnight.

Azul’s chief executive, year

13 pupil Strev Balmoria, who

lives in Riccarton, said it was a

privilege to be recognised as one

of the top six young enterprise

companies in the region.

Said Strev: “We are grateful

to have had this opportunity to

showcase a solution to the everincreasing

plastic issue facing

our society today.”

The E-Wrap product the company

designed is gelatine-based

and is 100 per cent environmentally

friendly.

The wrap is produced at a

shareholder’s house, and Strev

said the production process is

fairly simple. Once the mixture

is formed, it is left to set for a few

days before it is packaged.

The idea from the product

came from the group members

shared passion for the environment.

“Every day we see single-use

plastics, wrapped in our food

and in abundance in our school

canteen, so we were inspired by

our surroundings to come up

with an alternative to single-use

plastics,” Strev said.

The group has made nine sales

and have profited $76.50.

The five year 13 pupils will

not continue the business after

the school year finishes, but

Strev hopes the initiative of the

company will inspire future

students to look for solutions for

environmental issues.

“We faced a lot of difficulties

producing our product but,

despite that, our passion for

saving the environment became

our driving force to continue

making our product a reality,”

Strev said.

Barbara Harding responds

to last week’s Nor’West

News article on a proposed

liquor store on Memorial

Ave

I am utterly appalled to think

that yet another shop selling

alcohol may be granted a licence

in an area already well served for

alcoholic beverages, and also with

so many schools in the vicinity.

What possible positives could

there be to offering such a retail

outlet? I can only see the negatives

in a country where unfortunately

alcohol is over-consumed and

often the major cause of family

violence and broken homes.

Why not put a florist there?

New World offers some flowers,

but very few. With the church just

down the road, and being on a

main road for commuters, I could

imagine that this would be a very

worthwhile and attractive retail

option.

Why not send out the message

to tourists heading to the

airport that we are a garden

city? Failing that, a sushi shop

could most certainly be a great

option as there are none nearby,

and this could provide some

healthy snack options for passing

schoolchildren, as well as workers.

Please, do not allow this

proposed off-licence. It is a terrible

and ridiculous idea. Locals will

fight it all the way and hope that

those we have chosen to represent

us on the council will hear our

voices.

Every Day is Open Day

At the heart of our city since the founders laid the

first roads and planted the first trees, St Michael’s

has held dear those early aspirations and visions,

while unleashing our own dreams for a lofty future.

Indeed, for 168 years, St Michael’s has been

educating and nurturing the visionaries and

dreamers who

continue to shape our

city and the world

beyond. For our

young pupils have

limitless potential

to lead exciting and

generous lives, and we

have the responsibility

to educate and inspire

them, to encourage

every child to flourish

in mind, body and

spirit.

St Michael’s is a prep

school for girls and boys in Years

1-8. ‘Prep’ as in preparation for

secondary school, a foundation

for a fine life. For at the heart of St

Michael’s are the essential values of

Christian faith and good citizenship:

respect, integrity, community, faith,

hope and love.

An independent school education

at the primary level is a great gift.

Our classes are small, with year-groups of 20 pupils,

ensuring your child is an individual, well known by

staff and fellow pupils alike.

Traditional foundations in English and Maths are

assured. This academic rigour then underpins

our wider curriculums in History, Geography,

Science and Spanish.

IT literacy is taught,

not assumed, and

computer use is

measured. We like

teaching and talking to

our pupils!

A prep education

offers balance. St

Michael’s cultural and

sports’ programmes

further develop

your child’s

foundation, as

creativity and

problem-solving

come in many

forms. Specialist

art and music

classes are enjoyed

weekly. We have

three choirs,

and most pupils

participate in

instrumental or

speech & drama

lessons with our

ten itinerant staff.

Located in the

heart of the city,

opposite the

new Riverside

Farmers’ Market,

our extended

campus is

spectacular:

the Art Gallery

and Museum,

Tūranga, our new

central library,

and Hagley Park

are frequent

haunts.

Many of our parents now work in the thriving city

centre or Lincoln and Riccarton Road hubs, but

they live city-wide. They comment on the benefit of

knowing their children are in school nearby and the

convenience of popping over for an hour to catch a

performance or watch a race. With the new central

exchange only a block away, senior children arrive

by bus from all corners of the city.

You and your child are warmly welcome to discover

our purposeful, wholehearted and inclusive prep

school. Every day is open day, so please contact

registrar, Bec Hitchcock, to book your personal

A FORMER children’s

orphanage in Harewood will be

remembered with a memorial

seat.

Last week, the Christchurch

Methodist Mission held a small

ceremony to mark the site of the

former South Island Methodist

Orphanage and Children’s

Home, on Harewood Rd.

The Christchurch Methodist

Mission office is currently still

located at the site, but the

home was demolished in the

1990s.

The art deco home was first

opened 85 years ago and was

designed by architect Wilford

Melville Lawry.

The memorial seat was blessed

by Reverend Michael Greer, and

about 10 former residents of the

home attended the ceremony.

Christchurch Methodist

Mission executive director Jill

Hawkey said the event honoured

the request of a former resident

for a plaque to remember residents

and staff.

“We hope former residents

will see this as an opportunity

to reminisce about their time at

the home, and as an expression

of our commitment to retain

our memories associated with

the home,” she said.

A safe, gentle way to improve

fitness and health

For all those wanting to improve their strength,

fitness and overall health in a relaxed, friendly

environment, Charisma Health & Leisure in

Avonhead provides the ideal opportunity.

Not a gym, Charisma Health & Leisure is equipped

with six Shapemaster Powertone electronic beds,

each one designed to target specific muscle groups.

Owner Katrina Barron explains: “With the

Powertone system, the beds are all pre-set to operate

for five minutes, and clients move from one to the

next for the different sets of movements, with their

session lasting just over 30 minutes.

“The speed and resistance of each bed can be

varied according to individual needs, and they are

very safe – people of any age and any level of fitness

can use them and gain the benefits.”

These benefits include improving core strength,

gaining longer, leaner muscles, improving circulation

and increasing energy, as well as helping those with

conditions such as osteoarthritis and multiple sclerosis.

People also find the system useful for regaining

strength and normal movement after surgery such

as hip replacement, Katrina says, and for anyone

with an injury such as a broken ankle or damaged

shoulder, who want to maintain their fitness while

recovering, the injured area can be isolated while

they use the system.

The Shapemaster system was developed in the UK

in the late 1980s, and is now widely used around the

world as a gentle, safe form of exercise. Charisma

Health & Leisure in Avonhead is one of only two

places in New Zealand that offers it.

“Our other advantage is there is no pressure on

people to sign contracts – we don’t have contracts,

we offer flexible packages for our clients,” Katrina

says.

“You can come for a free trial, where we take you

through the system, explain how it works and the

health benefits it provides.

“If you like it you can then take a month’s

membership during which you can come once a

day for as many days as you wish. After that you can

choose from one of our flexible packages.”

Charisma Health & Leisure is located at 45

Merrin Street, just along from the Avonhead Mall.

Phone 358 3834. Open Monday to Friday 7.30am-

5.30pm and Saturday 8am-12.30pm.

The Powertone electronic beds each

provide different sets of movements

for the body’s muscle groups.

FREE TRIAL!

WORK OUT SMARTER

NOT HARDER

No joining fee, no contract!

will your body.

Tasty Bites

NOR’WEST NEWS

Baking the ultimate banana bread

This amazing banana

bread doesn’t crumble,

stays moist and freezes

well. It’s also the perfect

way to top off gnudi with

asparagus, which makes

for a tasty meal any time

of the day

Banana bread brilliance

Makes 14-15 slices

Ingredients

270g self-raising flour

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp ground cinnamon

¼ tsp ground cloves

80g butter, melted

140g dark cane sugar

3 large eggs, size 7

1 tsp vanilla extract

450g very ripe bananas, weighed

without skin, mashed (4-5 large

bananas)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 170 deg C

on bake.

Sift the flour, baking soda,

cinnamon and cloves into a large

bowl and stir well to combine.

Set aside.

Put the melted butter, dark

cane sugar, eggs and vanilla

extract into a medium-sized

bowl and beat together for

several minutes on high speed

until thick and creamy.

Reduce the speed and

gradually add the mashed

bananas, beating until well

combined. Make a well in the

centre of the dry ingredients and

stir in the banana mixture a third

at a time, mixing well after each

addition.

Tip into the prepared tin

(either loaf tin or cake tin) and

smooth the top.

Bake until golden brown – it

should be firm to the touch

and a skewer inserted into the

centre should come out clean

(about 50-55 minutes). You may

need to cover the bread with

baking paper for the last 15min

of cooking if it is browning too

much.

Remove from the oven and

cool on a wire rack for about

20min. Slide a knife between

the side of the tin and the bread

to loosen it. Invert the tin on to

a wire rack, remove the baking

paper, turn right way up and

leave to cool.

To serve the loaf, cut it into

thick slices and toast if you wish.

Cuts into 14-15 slices.

To serve as a cake, use ice

with lemon icing or leave plain.

Without the icing, the banana

flavour is more pronounced.

Cuts into 16-20 slices.

Gnudi with asparagus

Serves 4

Ingredients

400g ricotta

2 eggs

1 egg yolk

120g freshly grated parmesan,

plus extra for serving

100g flour

1 tsp salt

freshly ground pepper

semolina flour

2 bunches asparagus, woody

ends removed and cut into 3cm

pieces

50g butter

4 sprigs of thyme, marjoram or

basil

juice of ½ a lemon,

Directions

In a large bowl, mix together

ricotta, eggs, egg yolk, flour,

seasoning and parmesan cheese.

Mix to combine. Put into a

piping bag with large plain

nozzle.

Dust a tray heavily (5mm)

with semolina and pipe 2cmwide

tubes the length of the tray.

Continue until all the mix is used

and gently roll the tubes in the

semolina.

Chill for as long as possible (an

hour or overnight).

Bring a large pot of salted

water to the boil.

While the water is coming

to the boil, heat a large fry pan

with butter, add the herbs and

asparagus and cook until the

asparagus becomes tender (about

4min).

Cut the gnudi into 4cm

lengths, cook in boiling water.

When it rises to the top (about

3-4min) remove and drain.

Add them to the asparagus,

season, grate over plenty of

parmesan cheese and enjoy

immediately.

Tips for untreated hearing loss

Hearing is a sense that many of us

take for granted. Throughout our lives,

we subject our ears to loud sounds–

music, power tools, lawn mowers, air

travel–without using ear protection.

regrettably, this can cause hearing

loss. also, the natural aging process

generally results in hearing loss. even

certain illnesses and medications

can adversely affect our

hearing. Unfortunately,

hearing loss that occurs

from such causes is

permanent.

The good news is, even

if you already have a little

hearing loss, it’s never

too late to preserve your

hearing for the years ahead.

The first thing you can do

is protect your ears in noisy

environments. also, avoid

using cotton swabs to clean

your ears. and, make it a

priority to get a baseline

hearing screening to see

if hearing loss has already

occurred.

if hearing loss is found

during your hearing

evaluation, it could be

due to excess ear wax or

infection. This type of

hearing loss is reversible.

if hearing loss stems

from chronic exposure

to loud noise, aging, or certain illnesses

and medications, hearing aids are the

best way to preserve your good hearing.

The great news about today’s hearing

aids is how small and easy to wear

they are. Modern digital hearing

aids use super-tiny microprocessor

technology–making them virtually

invisible when worn. Hearing aids

can help almost all degrees of hearing

loss–from a little to a lot. and, by

stimulating your brain with sound that

might not otherwise reach it, hearing

aids help keep your brain active, which

lowers your risk for cognitive diseases,

such as dementia.

if you suspect you may have hearing

loss, don’t ignore it. neglecting a

hearing loss can have a snowball effect–

making it grow bigger, faster than

necessary.

Here are 10 ways you can limit

hearing damage and preserve good

hearing:

1. Understand the sound levels of the

noises in your environment.

2. Learn about proper ear protection.

There are many kinds on the market

today, ranging from custom ear

molds to foam plugs and more.

3. Put physical distance between you

and loud noise when it is present. if

possible, stand at an angle from the

noise, not directly in front of it.

4. Take breaks when you are exposed to

noise.

5. When listening to music through

headphones or earbuds, keep the

volume low-to-medium.

6. Know the signs of hearing loss, and

measure yourself against them.

7. schedule a baseline hearing

evaluation. Hearing loss is on the rise

among Baby Boomers and young

people. it’s never too early to get your

hearing checked, but don’t wait past

age 50.

8. Have your hearing evaluated by a

professional licensed by your state.

9. if you have hearing loss caused by

a reversible condition, take steps to

correct it.

10. if any permanent hearing loss is

diagnosed, choose hearing aids to

slow it down, and preserve good

hearing.

Summerset at Wigram serviced apartment resident, Alma with daughter Maree

Serviced apartments,

the best of both worlds

Discover how Summerset living allows

Alma to stay active and thrive

“ Since Mum’s been here,

she’s just blossomed”

From growing up in a big family in Christchurch to being happily married for 63 years, Alma’s had

plenty of company throughout her whole life.

So, when the option to move to a Summerset serviced apartment came up, Alma and daughter

Maree were naturally a little nervous it might be a bit on the quiet side for her. But, since the move,

they’ve discovered it’s been anything but quiet.

“I don’t think you’d ever need to feel lonely here. It’s just like a big family and there’s always

something going on,” remarks Alma.

When she first arrived at her serviced apartment, Alma had her husband by her side. Sadly, he

passed away shortly after due to on-going health issues. “I thought it might take her a little while to

deal with the loss of dad and… the new surroundings, but it was quite amazing really how quickly

she settled, and I think that was down to the staff,” recalls daughter Maree.

Alma with Maree as a toddler

While the move was a big decision, the whole family feel that Alma has “blossomed” since and

has become more herself again.

“ She’s involved herself in things that she hadn’t done for years, Choir. Exercising.

She’s just taken it with both hands, made friends and it’s all been just amazing.”

Maree and Alma both admit that the stigma of retirement living put them off for longer than it

needed to. “I think mum was just so delighted when she came here and realised how welcoming

and how well-run [the place was] and what care was here for her. I think it was an eye-opener, really.”

Having Alma living at home with her would have been a dream for Maree, but with the reality of

working all day, she worried her mum would be very bored. But Alma hasn’t had time for boredom

at all since moving to Summerset. “There’s so much to keep you occupied. Music. Happy Hour, little

outings. It’s a lovely place to be.”

Alma also fills her time with a cheeky bit of cleaning, even though she doesn’t need to lift a finger.

“I don’t think she leaves a lot for the staff to clean, but that’s mum,” laughs Maree.

“It’s a relief for us to know that she’s taken care of. Dad would be so pleased to see she’s in a

place like this. It’s just been a godsend.”
