Preparation starts to support

those who are self-isolating

• By Matt Slaughter

SPREYDON residents are

preparing to help members of

their community if they are

forced to self-isolate because of

Covid-19.

Spreydon Neighbourhood

Network Facebook group admin

Sonya Hodder got behind the

idea after one of its members

posted asking if residents are

willing to support people who

are self-isolating by dropping off

food and other supplies.

Said Mrs Hodder: “One of the

ladies who is in the group works

for the Red Cross and she’s like

an emergency person, you know,

she goes out with the four-wheeldrive

and that, and she came up

with the idea and so I agreed that

we should use our Facebook page

as an avenue if anybody does

need help.

“I’m not sure how needed that

it will be because most of the supermarkets

are providing online

delivery and things like that but

it’s just hard to know how it’s going

to pan out.

“I just think they [people] just

need to let us know what they

need and we’ll do our best to

help,” she said.

Mrs Hodder said there is no

need to panic but it is important

those who can help do their bit if

the worst happens.

“I just think anything to help

our community, that’s what we

[the Spreydon Neighbourhood

Network] are about, that’s why

we exist.

“We’ve got to look after each

other. I guess it’s going to get

Delay in making mall exit safer

• By Matt Slaughter

CHANGES TO make

Barrington St safer for

motorists, pedestrians and

cyclists will not happen as soon

as originally planned.

Southern View reported in

September work to remove the

right turn from Barrington

shopping centre on to Barrington

St was anticipated to

start early this year.

A recent report to the

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board from city council

staff says work will likely start

late this year and be completed

by 2021.

Said city council planning

and delivery transport manager

Lynette Ellis: “Christchurch City

Council and Barrington mall

have been working together to

achieve a plan that meets the

needs of both parties including

the mall tenants, as well as being

aligned to the mall’s resource

consent approval. This has

taken longer than originally

anticipated. The revised plan

will go to the community board

for approval on April 21.

“Following community board

approval the mall needs to apply

for and be granted a change to

their resource consent conditions,

before we can undertake

the works. Once resource consent

approval has been achieved,

we will expedite construction to

complete the project as soon as

possible,” she said.

The board and nearby residents

have been calling for the

right turn out of the mall car

park to be scrapped for about a

decade due to it being dangerous

and this is one of the board’s

proposed priorities for the next

three years.

Spreydon Neighbourhood

Network secretary Sonya Hodder

said it is disappointing to

see the work not running on

schedule because this has happened

before.

“We’re a bit disappointed.

“We’ve been fighting for this

for years, over four years, and it

just keeps being delayed. It was

supposed to happen last year

and it was supposed

to happen by May this

year.”

Said Cashmere Ward

city councillor Tim

Scandrett: “Yes, it is disappointing

that it’s not

happening as soon as

we had hoped but, let’s

be honest, this has been

wanted for as much as a

decade.

“We’ve made it very clear,

we want this to happen as soon

as possible but you know, the

key is that it’s going to happen,

Jill Kearns

to cut off the

St will likely be

anticipated.

SLOAN ​

we’ve got an agreement with

everybody and it’s great,” he

said.

Barrington manager Jill

Kearns said: “This

project was always going

to be complex as there

is a lot of stakeholders

to consider, including

the community, so we

always knew that any

decisions would need

to be deliberated on at

length. We’re pleased

to advise that plans are

now in their final stages and we

understand that once these are

signed off, a programme on the

scope will be determined and

work will commence.”

In Brief

NO FREEDOM CAMPING

No camping signs have been installed

on Hunter Tce, Cashmere

and Waimea Tce, Beckenham.

These signs are to inform people

that enforcement action can be

taken against anyone camping

overnight. If you wish to report

any breaches of these rules, call

the city council on 941 8999 or

report via its Snap Send Solve

mobile phone app.

STORMWATER UPGRADE

Stormwater pipe repairs near

the Brougham and Selwyn Sts

intersection is scheduled to

start in April. The work will

be carried out over four to five

months across different stages

to reduce impacts on traffic and

access. A section of brick barrel

stormwater pipe, which was

built in 1912 will be replaced

with a new pipe. Work will

also involve replacing and

constructing surrounding

stormwater lateral pipes.

HEATHCOTE DREDGING

The dredging of the lower

Heathcote River to remove invasive

weeds will be continuing

from Aynsley Tce to St Martins

Rd. This will involve sediment

removal, work on riverbanks

and some tree removal. City

council staff are completing

this work.

Community weighs in on priorities

• By Matt Slaughter

THE SPREYDON-Cashmere

Community Board’s emphasis

on improving road safety was its

most popular proposed priority

at a community meeting.

The board held a meeting

at South Library, where about

30 members of the public gave

feedback on the

priorities for

the next three

years, which

are yet to be

finalised.

These are to

promote the

installation of

Cherylan

Davies

traffic lights at

the intersection

of Cashmere,

Hoon Hay and Worsleys Rds,

remove the Barrington Mall

Barrington St entrance/exit

and improve road safety and

travel efficiency on Dyers Pass,

Hackthorne and Cashmere Rds,

particularly at intersections.

Its other priorities are to

upgrade the toilets, changing

rooms and sports storage at

Hoon Hay Park, activate Hoon

Hay Community Centre,

plan for an adult playground

somewhere in the Spreydon-

Cashmere Wards and promote

the progression of the cycle

network through these wards.

Said board chairwoman

Karolin Potter: “What they [the

public] probably discussed most

was traffic safety.”

Concerns people raised

included: “Getting across

Cashmere Rd and Centaurus

Rd, getting across Hoon Hay Rd,

getting across Lyttelton St, traffic

safety for Addington School,

traffic safety for Hoon Hay

School,” she said.

Manager of Addington community

development agency

Manuka Cottage Cherylan

Davies was at the meeting and

told the board she wants it to

prioritise the upgrade of more

toilet facilities than just the ones

at Hoon Hay Park, particularly

those in Addington.

She is happy with the proposed

priorities overall but

told the board at the meeting it

would be good to see it doing

more for Addington.

“I just did a plug for Addington

and [was] just thinking, you

know, it would be good to see

some priorities for Addington

that aren’t necessarily put upon

them [the community board].”

Hoon Hay Community Association

secretary Bernie Pullinger

was also at the meeting

and is pleased people supported

the proposals to revitalise Hoon

Hay Community Centre and improve

Hoon Hay Park’s facilities.

Ms Potter said the least

popular of the board’s proposed

priorities was her own idea for

an adult playground to be built.

The board will use the feedback

received at the meeting

and 28 online responses made

through the city council’s Have

Your Say page during a consultation

period to decide on its

finalised priorities.

The online feedback given

is being considered by elected

members and will be included in

the board’s future agendas when

it adopts its priorities.

Ken Couling responds to

the letters in last week’s

Southern View about the

recent articles on the 360

Trail group’s proposal to

build a pathway beside the

Bromley oxidation ponds

and the effect this may have

on birds.

Some recent correspondents to

Southern View have completely

the wrong idea about the proposed

pathway along the east of

the oxidation ponds.

The path would meander

through the existing bush

between the oxidation ponds

bund and the estuary. It would be

invisible from the estuary, hence,

cause little or no disturbance to

birds on the estuary.

Further south between Sandy

Point and the windsurfing car

park is an existing exposed public

pathway.

The construction of a shade

cloth fence, until overgrown by

newly-planted native shrubs, will

reduce the existing disturbance

of the birds using this part of the

estuary.

Advice to stop the spread of coronavirus

•From page 1

Mrs Hodder said a leaflet offering

people advice on how to prepare

themselves for emergencies

like earthquakes was created by

the neighbourhood network and

delivered to Spreydon residents

three years ago. She said the information

within this will be useful

for those who are not members

Creating another pamphlet with

Covid-19 advice could also be an

option, she said.

Said Mrs Hodder: “I think people

should be being encouraged

to prepare by having things ready

without going overboard.”

The Ministry of Health’s

advice on stopping the spread of

Covid-19 includes:

Cough or sneeze into your

elbow or by covering your mouth

and nose with tissues. Put used

tissues in the bin immediately.

Wash your hands with soap and

water often (for at least 20sec).

Try to avoid close contact with

people who are unwell.

Don’t touch your eyes, nose or

mouth if your hands are not clean.

Davids heads national

LINWOOD-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

member Alexandra Davids

has become the youngest

person to head the national

body advocating for

community boards.

At 34, Ms Davids

plans to “take

advantage of my

relative youth and

energy to help advocate

and drive new

ideas and change” as

community board

executive committee

chairwoman for

Local Government

New Zealand.

“I was surprised to be chosen,

to an extent.

“It has taken many years for

younger people to be taken

seriously, so it has felt special to

be elected with support from

more mature people,” she said.

First elected to a community

board at age 28, Ms Davids

continues to build on her very

early commitment to helping

young people and families.

“Instead of going to holiday

programmes, my mum would

send me to the Methodist Mission

Food Bank to volunteer

putting together food parcels

“I got to meet some of the

families and it gave

me an insight at a

to how people were

struggling in our

city,” said Ms Davids.

works with the Battered

answers calls for Crisisline,

is the chairwoman

for Keep New

Zealand Beautiful, a

She also stars in Murder

Mystery shows.

After finding her first-year

political science degree “rather

dry,” she opted to commit to

helping others and was voted

on the community board in

2013.

She said her new role offers

a good opportunity to “keep

local issues on the table.”

FAMILY: Andrei Moore (right) with his adopted father Richard Moore (left), his birth father Gabriel Toader and his adopted mother Karen Moore in Romania. (Right) –

Andrei with Richard and Karen outside the building he was born and found in.

‘Tracking down birth parents, the right thing to do’

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ANDREI MOORE could have

been one of tens of thousands

of babies to grow up in an

orphanage in Romania.

It is why the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

deputy chairman is determined

to give back to the Halswell community

– his home for the last 29

years.

Born in Târgoviste, Romania,

in 1991, it was a time when more

than 10,000 children were abandoned

in orphanages – leaving

them subject to neglect, physical

and sexual abuse and drug use to

control behaviour.

The overpopulation of children

was a result of communist

Romanian president Nicolae

Ceausescu banning contraception

and abortion in 1966 unless

the mother was more than

40-years-old or already had four

children in care.

By 1977, people were taxed

more for being childless.

Mr Moore’s birth parents

Gabriel and Lavinia Toader

could not afford to raise him

and he was due to go to an

orphanage.

“It is a totally bizarre scenario

. . . one of my biological brothers

was not so lucky, he grew up in

an orphanage,” he said.

But at two weeks old, the dull

outlook for Mr Moore’s life

drastically changed when he was

“intercepted” from the orphanage

and adopted by Karen and

Richard Moore.

Mr Moore’s father said his

parents “had nothing” and

when they found Andrei he was

“horribly underweight” and “ill”

already at two weeks old.

“I am really lucky to grow

up in a place such as Halswell

instead of remaining in an orphanage.

To be able to represent

a community that has given so

much means a huge amount,”

Mr Moore said.

Although he appreciates more

than most growing up in a quiet,

Andrei Moore

safe area of New Zealand, he

knew tracking down his birth

parents was the right thing to do.

“It felt like something that

needed to be done eventually,

while they are still alive and

while I am still alive. And the

other reason is my dad has been

nagging me for years.”

In 2017 Mr Moore was chosen

out of hundreds of applications,

to star on ThreeNow’s Lost and

Found – a documentary series

which sets about reuniting families,

uncovering cultural identity

and discovering lost family heritage.

“I didn’t do it to introduce two

more parents into my life. It was

more to meet and thank them

and know that was done,” Mr

Moore said.

It was not easy tracking down

his parents but through the television

show Mr Moore not only

met his parents but his sister and

brother.

“I found out I have three sisters

I never knew I had, I never knew

I was an uncle,” Mr Moore said.

All up, Mr Moore has six

brothers and three sisters from

different parents.

While having his personal life

laid out on a national television

show may not have been the

“ideal” way to find his long-lost

parents, Mr Moore knew it may

be the only way.

“When trying to find birth

parents on the other side of the

world that you haven’t been in

contact with over 20 years – you

are quite limited on where to

start and where to go.

Mr Moore hopes others

adopted as children may be

inspired to go on a similar

journey as him and find their

long-lost family.

Since the show re-aired this

month, Mr Moore said he has received

dozens of messages from

people encouraged to go out and

do the same thing.

While he has stayed in touch

with his siblings, he did not have

the same desire to keep in touch

with his parents.

Mr Moore will take over as

community board chairman

from November.

Market day at Cashmere HS goes green

FUN: Ellie Cooper, Grace Cooper and Lou Huggins sharing a

laugh.

SUSTAINABLE: Cashmere High School principal Joe Eccleton (left), Kristine Corpuz, Darcy

Prasad,Tayla Judkins and teacher Nick Milward took part in the school’s first green market day. ​

• By Matt Slaughter

CASHMERE HIGH School held

its first-ever green market day on

March 11.

Year 10 business studies students

managed a variety of stalls

mostly selling food or drinks.

For the first time, every group

served their products in biodegradable

packaging and with

compostable utensils.

This not only minimised the

environmental impact of the

event but was a contributing

factor in the majority of groups

making a good profit.

The students who participated

developed a full business plan

and gained skills to support their

futures in and out of school.

Every group voted to donate

the money raised, more than

over $150 in total, to the victims

of the March 15 terror attacks.

YUM: Orla Dunlop with dessert.

SERVICE: Jayden Sadlier Stock, Hannah-Jane Wilson and

Ava Barlow serving up the product, which they developed as

part of a project for their year 10 business class.

Tasty Bites

Simple meals to lift anyone’s spirits

• By Ian Knott

Who doesn’t love a

good feast of lasagne or

spaghetti bolognese?

For a change, try this

baked spaghetti recipe

instead. It’s super easy and

the perfect mash-up of

two family classics

Baked spaghetti

Serves 6

Ingredients

Cooking spray

500g spaghetti

2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

500g beef mince

Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp Italian seasoning

1 can crushed tomatoes

½ cup basil, chopped

1 cup shredded mozzarella

¼ cup freshly grated parmesan

Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish

Directions

Preheat oven to 180 deg C.

Grease a medium baking dish

with cooking spray.

Cook spaghetti according to

package directions until al-dente,

drain, and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet

over medium heat, heat oil. Add

onions and cook until soft and

translucent, about 5min. Stir in

garlic and cook until fragrant,

1min more. Add ground beef,

season with salt, pepper, and

Italian seasoning, and cook until

no longer pink, about 8min.

Drain fat in a bowl lined with

paper towels and return to pan.

Pour in crushed tomatoes and

basil and simmer until slightly

reduced, about 10min. Season

with more salt and pepper to

taste.

Toss with spaghetti, then

transfer to baking dish and top

with mozzarella and parmesan.

Bake until cheese is melted and

pasta is warmed through, about

20min.

Garnish with parsley and serve.

Homemade chicken

noodle soup is already

easy to whip up, but tossing

all of your ingredients in a

slow cooker makes it

even easier

Slow cooker chicken noodle

soup

Serves 6-8

Ingredients

700g boneless, skinless chicken

breasts

1 large onion, chopped

3 carrots, peeled and sliced into

10 cups chicken broth

230g egg noodles

leaf and season generously with

salt and pepper. Pour in broth.

Cover and cook on low, 6 to

8hr. Remove chicken from slow

cooker and shred with two forks.

Discard herbs and bay leaf.

Return chicken to slow cooker

and add egg noodles.

Cook on low, covered, until

al-dente, 20-30min.
