Police use

‘covert’

operations

in bid to

bag window

smashers

• By Claire Booker

POLICE HAVE been performing

covert operations and stepping up

their presence in Bishopdale in a

bid to catch people throwing rocks

through windows.

Senior Sergeant Roy Appley said

police have been

patrolling the suburb

and undertaking

“covert and overt

operations” for the

past two weeks

after seven reports

of windows being

smashed with rocks.

Although they are

yet to catch those

Roy Appley

responsible, there have been no

reports of smashed windows since

October 19.

Said Senior Sergeant Appley: “We

haven’t held anybody to account yet,

but one way or another the reduction

has happened, which is what we are

after.”

However, residents can still

expect to see more police around

Bishopdale as they aim to prevent

further crime in the area.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you make of the newly-elected chairs and deputy chairs? Email

your views to claire.booker@starmedia.kiwi

Board chair goes to Norrish

• By Claire Booker

EXPERIENCED member

Emma Norrish will take over

as chairwoman of the Papanui-

Innes Community Board after

former-chairwoman Ali Jones

decided not to run for the role.

The third term board member

was deputy

chairwoman

last term to Ms

Jones, and was

unanimously

voted in last

week to lead

the board for

the next three

Emma Norrish

years.

Ms Jones

was not at the meeting last week,

but she had already informed the

board members she did not want

to be considered for the role of

chairwoman, and the board had

discussed that Ms Norrish would

be a good fit for the role.

Said Ms Jones: “I wasn’t prepared

to put my name forward

for the role. My personal earthquake

claim needs to be my top

priority at the moment.”

Ms Norrish said her good local

knowledge and experience as a

deputy chairwoman will serve

her well in the new role.

“Being the deputy for the last

term has equipped me well to

serve in this role,” Ms Norrish

said.

The challenge for deputy chair

was close, with community

board newcomers Simon Britten

and Emma Twaddell both nominated

for the role.

Mr Britten won the vote

3-2, and said he looks forward

to bringing his experience in

working collaboratively and his

experience with chairing other

boards to the role.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

will be led by experienced fourterm

member David Cartwright.

But Mr Cartwright plans on

stepping down after about a year

in the role to allow a younger

board member to take on the

role.

He hopes the initiative to

change chairs catches on in other

boards across the city.

Bridget Williams may be just

the right fit to step into the role

of chair in a year’s time, and

she was unanimously elected

as deputy chairwoman at the

meeting.

Said Mr Cartwright: “[The

plan is that] I will remain chair

and allow Bridget to understand

the intricacies and ins and outs

of the details and commitments

of the chair and deputy chair.”

Mr Cartwright hopes to play

a part in getting a tree policy,

which relates to safe removal and

maintenance of the city’s trees

brought into action, which has

been sitting in a draft format for

about 17 years.

In Brief

FIREARMS COLLECTION

Prohibited firearms and parts

Plan revealed to fix worn

out Bishopdale skate park

PLANS TO revamp one of the

largest suburban skate park’s in

the city have been revealed.

Bishopdale Park’s worn out

skate area on Leacroft St will

undergo a makeover to make it

more suitable for beginner and

intermediate skaters.

The total area of the skate park

will increase from 1197sq m to

almost 1300sq m.

The city council is asking for

feedback on a series of proposed

improvements to the park.

Specialist skate park

designer Richard Smith was

commissioned to create a

landscape plan.

The proposed skate park

would feature a pump bump, low

pyramid, roll-overs, and a jersey

barrier, blended into a roll-over

finger, as well as bench seating

and a picnic table. The existing

concrete slabs would be resealed

and the quarter-pipe replaced

with a granite ledge and smaller

half pipe.

Said city council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge: “Bishopdale

Park is close to a number of

schools and is very popular with

local families. Improving the existing

skate area will make it even

more appealing to young people

in the area and provide them

There will be an opportunity to discuss the revamp plans

for the Bishopdale Park skate area with city council staff on

November 24 at the park between 11am and 2pm

PLANS: The proposed upgrade of the Bishopdale Park skate

area includes a new half-pipe and granite ledge, as well as

bench seating and a picnic table.

with some good challenges.”

About 500 information leaflets

have been delivered to nearby

properties and key stakeholders

last week. Suggestions for the

design were collected from last

year’s Bishopdale Skate Jam

event.

He also received the Greatest

Individual Impact Award, for

almost single-handedly raising

$14,000 for World Vision.

“These awards highlight my

passion to help as well as the huge

amount of work that the school

has encouraged us to do over the

years to support World Vision,”

he said.

Said Izaac on raising the

$14,000: “I started to email celebrities

across the globe ranging

from Graham Norton, Ellen De-

Generes, multiple different actors

and celebrities overseas and also

many famous New Zealanders.”

Izaac did not get many responses

but heard back from

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern,

Nico Porteus, some All Blacks

and other New Zealand artists.

From there, he had the idea to

host an art auction, which raised

$12,000, he then door-knocked

NOR’WEST NEWS

and approached family members,

which raised another $2000.

Next year, Izaac will travel to

Malawi with four other World

Vision Ambassadors and see

where the funds from the 40hr

famine will go.

“This is a long way from home,

making it an exciting adventure

for myself and the other four

ambassadors going on the trip. I

feel excited but ready for the challenge,”

he said.

Once he returns from Malawi,

he will visit schools across the

country to assist with fundraising

for World Vision, and he said

one of his key goals is to increase

participation in the famine across

Christchurch.

“I feel so privileged and blessed

to be able to help World Vision

with its global work and to be

able to help it make a change is

something that will stick with me

forever,” he said.

Wilson goes to

Malawi next year,

he will witness

Vision does,

such as helping

communities

As local MP, there’s nothing more

satisfying than working alongside

local residents in advocating

for the important things in our

community. At my over 60s’

coffee morning in Belfast recently,

Colleen and Frank raised

concerns about young children

crossing the railway line from

Thompsons Road to get to Belfast

School. I organised a meeting

for them with the New Zealand

Transport Agency (NZTA). Colleen

and Frank were thrilled to hear

that NZTA will build a crossing

over the railway line with warning

bells and an automatic gate, to be

completed by the middle of next

year. This will also help the elderly

with mobility scooters to cross

safely to get to the Northwood

Supa Centre.

I joined our Canterbury MPs in

celebrating our Indian community

at the Diwali Festival. The Festival

of Lights is a great way for us

to share in Indian culture and

acknowledge the contribution of

our migrants.

With over 23 schools in the

electorate, it’s a busy time with

a number of school prizegivings

being held. Last week I

joined Kaiapoi High School in

acknowledging their seniors at the

end of year prizegiving. I enjoy

these opportunities to engage

with our young people.

Last week saw the last of my

over 60s’ coffee mornings for

this year and a huge thank you

to all who attended. It has been

enormously valuable to me to

hear your views.

I wish everyone a great

Canterbury Show Day. It’s a

highlight on Canterbury’s calendar

and many of us have great

memories as children enjoying

the rides, candyfloss and animals.

Please do stop and say hello if

you’re attending.

Entertainer honoured with local hero award

• By Matt Slaughter

KATHLEEN HOOD has spent 40

years putting smiles on the faces of

Christchurch’s elderly.

The 86-year-old entertains

residents at Elmswood Retirement

Village, Bryndwr, and Middlepark

Rest Home, Upper Riccarton, and

has previously done so at The Princess

Margaret Hospital.

This volunteering work has

earned her a Kiwibank New Zealand

Local Hero of the Year Award,

which she and other Christchurch

local heroes will receive at a ceremony

on December 3.

Mrs Hood tells jokes, reads poetry

and runs a quiz each time she

visits retirement homes.

She said this brings joy to their

residents and the quizzes include

historic questions, which bring back

memories and often start nostalgic

conversations between them.

“It’s really good because the questions

I ask are relevant to their age

and their experiences in life. They

do really enjoy it.”

Mrs Hood said her favourite thing

about what she does and the reason

she has been doing it for so many

years is it brings happiness to people

who sometimes need it most.

“The best thing for me is giving

to these older people. Some of

them have had very lonely lives

and when they come into the rest

home they’re a wee bit nervous.

She said when she entertains

residents “there’s a lot of laughter, I

can even tell a few risque jokes and

they enjoy all that.”

Mrs Hood said not even health

issues were able to stop her volunteering

for long.

“I did have two challenges with

cancer but I have had surgery and

I’m really fine now, everything’s all

good.’’

She said she was back in front

of retirement home audiences “as

soon as I could get back behind the

wheel.”

Mrs Hood is proud to receive a

local hero award this year.

“I never ever expected it and

when it came everybody around

me, my family and my friends

were all saying well deserved. It’s

very humbling and it will be to be

among people who have done marvellous

things in the community on

the night of the awards.”

But Mrs Hood said winning

awards is not why she volunteers

her time.

“If you ask any volunteer, it’s not

for accolades or recognition, you

don’t do it for that, it’s just for the

love of doing it, I suppose.”

She hopes her efforts will inspire

her children, grandchildren and

great-grandchildren to volunteer in

their communities.

One size and one shape definitely

does not fit all. One weekend recently,

I had the pleasure of joining a tour of

architectural homes which championed

the principles of energy awareness and

conservation, amongst other things.

Style over size was evident amongst all

the individual and specific architectural

signatures, as was the variation of

spatial configurations, and this has

caused me to reflect on the increasing

popularity of smaller properties and

the acceptance of different ways of

doing things.

Firstly, size. Not small, as in ‘let’s fit your entire

life into a caravan’, but small as in compact,

thoughtful and clever, is enjoying an increase in

popularity throughout our region. The restraint

required to ‘live smaller’ would be too much for

me and it’s no secret that I have a maximalist

rather than a minimalist approach, but I can

definitely appreciate why this trend is gaining

momentum nationally and internationally.

Millennials wanting a chance to get onto the

property ladder are considering alternatives

to the types of properties their parents might

have started with, and size features strongly in

this equation, whilst retirees are wanting to turn

things on their head and look to a similar lifestyle

and property, but smaller, having been there and

done that.

One of the reasons for considering a smaller

dwelling is obvious: energy efficiency. A smaller

house should be easier to heat, and this flows

The BIG trend

of going SMALL

directly on to a reduced cost. A smaller ecological

footprint, helping both your pocket and our

planet. Solar-powered options feature, as do

passive heating methods based around a house’s

orientation and construction. Excess materials,

color choices and furniture are all pared back, and

clever storage options become all-important.

The other notable element in choosing to live

like this is that your community and your city

surroundings take on a whole new meaning, and

with ‘intimate’ (my word for ‘tiny’!) garden spaces,

you can see the merit in this. The park next-door

acts as your garden and the city, your backyard –

and potentially a scooter replaces your car.

For me, it seems like the easiest time to make a

decision to commit to this lifestyle would be when

you first start out and don’t have much or later

when you have so much that you think, ‘I now want

less’. That middle period with kids, cars, bikes and

all the other stuff that comes with life would make

it too hard for some, but as the tour I’ve referred to

has taught me, not everyone feels this way. Therein

lies the beauty of the times we live in and the

choices we have.

One size certainly doesn’t fit all – nor is it expected

too – and it just so happens that there are

architects, builders, developers and designers

thinking the same way. It makes for an engaging

and interesting era.

St Andrew’s music teacher honoured

• By Claire Booker

DUNCAN FERGUSON has

been teaching at St Andrew’s

College for 10 years and last

week he was named New

Zealand’s Music Teacher of the

Year.

The head of music was in

Wellington last week with a

group of students on a field trip,

and he said it was very special to

have the students with him as he

accepted the Tui award.

Mr Ferguson plans to display

it on his desk at school, and said

he was very humbled to win the

award.

Said Mr Ferguson: “To even

be nominated was special.

While winning an award is no

motivation for what I do, it is

gratifying to see that the long

hours and hard work I put in has

been recognised at a national

level.

“My amazing students provide

the biggest motivation to do a

good job. I am lucky to be their

teacher,” he said.

Mr Ferguson was the only

South Island finalist, with the

others being Jane Egan, of

Gisborne, and Auckland’s Sue

Banham.

At St Andrew’s, Mr Ferguson

manages 30 co-curricular

groups across all genres of

‘My amazing students

provide the biggest

motivation to do a good

job. I am lucky to be their

teacher’ – Duncan Ferguson

music, which more than 140

students are involved in. He

did not expect to win the award

but was quietly confident in his

chances.

“If I didn’t win I would

naturally have been

disappointed, but at the same

time still super proud that I was

a finalist,” he said.

Mr Ferguson said the award

will not change the way he

works or how his students and

colleagues view him.

“The main reason why I won

the award is that I am constantly

questioning my practice and

figuring out new ways of better

serving my students from year

to year. That will continue to

happen.

“The work I do on a national

level training teachers and

providing them with resources

will [also] continue as I want

to see all young musicians and

composers in New Zealand

empowered by the music

education system,” Mr Ferguson

said.

•From page 1

Concerns have been raised on

the Bishopdale Community Group

Facebook page after two thefts were

reported last weekend.

A woman had her handbag stolen

from her home on Mooray Ave and

$1000 was spent on her credit card

at Bishopdale Village Mall.

“This highlights people need to

be constantly thinking about their

personal safety. If we make it harder

[for potential thieves], these events

may be less likely to happen,” Senior

Sergeant Appley said.

A 16-year-old male also had his

bike stolen by a group of four men

thought to be in their late teens or

early 20s. The men cut the young

cyclist off in a silver sedan, then

rugby tackled him off the bike

before physically assaulting him and

taking the bike. He was not seriously

injured and was able to walk

home to phone police.

Senior Sergeant Appley was not

aware of any increase in crime in

the north-west, but said police will

continue to closely monitor the area.

IN CONCERT: Polly Lee and Chloe Jiang performing with the

Christchurch Symphony Orchestra at the town hall.

Girls show ‘poise and

grace’ on stage with CSO

TWO YOUNG musicians got

the chance to play with the

Christchurch Symphony

Orchestra at the town

hall last week.

Rangi Ruru Girls’

School year 7 music

scholar Polly Lee and

Cathedral Grammar

year 8 student and 2020

music scholar Chloe

Jiang were soloists at the

CSO’s Last Night of the

Proms concert.

The pair played the

piano duet solo in three

movements from Saint-

Saëns’ Carnival of the

Animals – Aquarium,

Fossils, and The Swan.

Rangi Ruru director

of music Janet

Kingsbury said it was a

wonderful concert, and

the girls performed with “poise

and grace.”

“Polly and Chloe are very

accomplished pianists and

violinists,” said Mrs

Kingsbury:

“The fact that these

young women are playing

alongside much older

musicians is a clear

indication of the high

calibre of some of our

current and future music

students.

Chloe Jiang

“All credit to them, their

talent and their incredible

focus and drive.”

Last Night of the

Proms was Polly’s third

performance as a soloist

with the CSO. She has

previously been a violin

soloist.

Polly and Chloe are

pianists and teachers

Melanie Lina and Michael

Endres.

Big future for young filmmakers

• By Claire Booker

FREYA CHAMPION had acted

in one short film before her

fellow Christchurch Girls’ High

School classmates recruited her

for their media studies project.

But last week her talents were

recognised at the Ara School

Shorts Screen Festival, where she

was named best actress.

The film Lured was made by

CGHS students Louise Kim and

Georgie Baddeley, who created it

in their media studies class.

Freya played the leading role of

Liz, a young woman investigating

the sudden disappearance of

her best friend.

Louise, who lives in

Halswell, wrote the

script for the film

after researching

pseudo-religion

and finding

out about

multiple

historic

cult-related

murders.

Lured

was one of

19 films

showcased

at the

competition

final at The

Palms. The

short films

were screened

at Reading Cinemas.

Said Louise: “It was one of the

most exciting moments of my

life to have our film screened in

an actual cinema and having an

audience to watch it.”

Freya was surprised to take out

best actress, and said it was a real

honour.

Her passion for acting has

flourished over the past few

years as she has been involved

in theatre sports and small

productions.

“As I have only starred in one

other film, I wasn’t quite sure

what would tick the boxes for

the judges, so I was

NOR’WEST NEWS

pleasantly surprised to receive

the award,” she said. The 18-yearold

also has a passion for politics

and earlier this year attended the

Youth Parliament as the Youth

MP for Christchurch Central

Labour MP Duncan Webb. ​

Freya said the highlight of

being involved in the film was

working with her two best

friends.

“Georgie and Louise had a

great vision for the film, and

because of our friendship, we

were able to easily communicate

ideas and this allowed us to film

in a good environment,” she said.

Next year, Freya, Georgie and

Louise will go their separate

ways to study, but will

continue to develop their

skills and passion in

film.

CREATIVE: CGHS

friends (from

Fitzgerald, Anna

Champion,

Louise Kim,

release of the

short film, Lured,

for which Freya

won a ‘best

actress’ award.

Basketball’s best to play in all-star game

• By Jacob Page

THE BEST secondary school

basketball players in Canterbury

will get their chance to impress

in respective boys and girls

all-star games before the New

Zealand Breakers game at

Horncastle Arena next month.

The Breakers will host the

South East Melbourne Phoenix

on December 20.

Christ’s College’s Josh Book

and Mason Whittaker, St Bede’s

Walter Brown, Papanui’s Izzy

Orr and St Andrew’s Mac

Stodart will all take part in the

games.

The girls game will tip off at

2.10pm and the boys game will

tip off at 3.50pm followed by the

Breakers and Phoenix at 7.30pm.

The high school games come

after the Thomson and Whelan

Trophy season as well as strong

national campaigns where

Cashmere High School finished

fourth in the boys competition

and Christchurch Girls’ High

School finished eighth in the

girls’ grade.

Organiser, Joe Hammond said

the plan was to split the squads

into two even teams to produce

two even encounters.

He said squads were picked

by the top six high school boys

coaches and former Canterbury

Wildcats coach Lori McDaniel.

“It’s been a couple of years

since the game was held, but I

SPORT

think it’s a great way to recognise

the effort and achievements of

the players throughout the season,”

Mr Hammond said.

There are also plans to

livestream the two games.

“The Breakers have said the

team will try to watch the concluding

stages of the games so

hopefully it will give the kids a

big buzz.’’

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

NOR’WEST NEWS

“ 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.”
