Davids calls for well-being

focus in pandemic recovery

• By Louis Day

NEW community board

chairwoman Alexandra Davids

believes it is time to look at doing

things differently as the country

begins to adjust to a new normal.

As community boards are

reinstated this week after ceasing

over the lockdown period and

alert level 3, Miss Davids who

is now heading the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board believes a real focus on

community well-being is needed

as the city looks to recover from

the Covid-19 crisis.

“I feel like we have got to a

point now where we have all

been in lockdown and we have

all started to work out what is

important to us and I think community

well-being is something

that will be at the forefront of our

decision-making.

“Hopefully, there will be a lot

more decision-making based

around that. We have to look

at how we do things differently

now,” she said.

Miss Davids assumed her new

role of chairwoman last month

after Sally Buck stepped down

from the position for health

reasons.

Giving the voiceless a voice

• From page 1

Miss Davids said she wanted to

instil an emphasis on engagement

with communities across the board’s

jurisdiction, with a focus on giving

the voiceless a voice at a council level.

Her passion for helping others was

planted from an early age when her

mother would put her to work at the

Methodist Mission Food Bank as

opposed to putting her into holiday

programmes.

“I think it was really to avoid paying

for the holiday programmes because

they are really expensive and she was

on her own with three children, but

it was actually a really great time and

learning experience.”

She has worked in a wide range of

jobs which she believes has given her a

well-rounded perspective of her ward.

She worked in retail at Ballantynes,

in a hotel, an office for a car transmission

garage, where she even got to

rebuild a couple of transmissions, and

at a funeral home.

This is now Miss Davids’ third term

on the community board after first

being elected in 2013, she began this

term as deputy chairwoman.

She described her introduction to

local body politics as a “baptism of

fire.”

In 2013, when she ran for the then

Hagley-Ferrymead Ward for both

council and community board as

a 27-year-old, her billboards were

continuously being stolen and photos

of herself viewable on her Facebook

page, which media referred to as

“glamour shots,” attracted a lot of

publicity.

However, Miss Davids did not think

it was fair to call the photos “glamour

shots.”

“When I saw the articles calling

them glamour shots, I thought but I’m

not a glamour model at all, far from

it, I pity the people who had to look at

my shots,” she joked.

As stressful as this experience was,

Miss Davids felt it prepared her well

for what lied ahead in her political

career.

BUSY: Alongside

her new role as

chairwoman of

the community

board, Miss Davids

also serves in a

number of other

roles including

chairwoman

of Keep New

Zealand

Beautiful and

chairwoman of

Local Government

New Zealand’s

community

board executive

committee.

Aside from her new role, she is also

chairwoman for Local Government

New Zealand’s community board

executive committee, chairwoman

of both Keep Christchurch Beautiful

and Keep New Zealand Beautiful,

chairwoman of the Whitau School

board, a representative on LGNZ’s

young elected members committee

and a trustee of the Graeme Dingle

Foundation.

On top of this, she also manages

to find time to fulfil her duties

as a Resource Management Act

commissioner and role at the

Women’s Refuge.

“We are currently all living in a time of unprecedented

uncertainty and disruption. It gives us a time to slow

down and to listen to our thoughts and reflect on what is

happening around us.

Our thoughts are influenced by what we listen to and

we are then challenged by what we assume we need

and to what is important. In every moment we now have

room to reflect and to embrace change. It has given

me the ability to entertain change and to open up my

imagination.

In these paintings I have tried to express this through

subject, colour and movement. I have allowed myself

to dream and to challenge my mind to new choices; to

create images representing energy and fun, expressing

love and dance, risk, and freedom to express. Food

replenishes love and caring. The flower presents beauty

and the art of giving. It is also a time to meet your

shadows, to let your mind play, to have a conversation

with yourself.

Freedom of thought and expression has no boundaries

to ones imagination. The art to create is a great

healer for me and is a way in which I can express and

communicate my thoughts, desires and feelings.

“Moments in time are special - embrace them, enjoy

them, celebrate and share them.” - Jacqui Gibbs

Chamberlain

While Jacqui’s subject matter is invariably the human

form, it is secondary to her exploring form, structure,

movement, colour and texture.

Jacqui lives and paints on an isolated farm in

Port Levy, Banks Peninsula with her husband and

daughter Phoebe.

Fire fighters give Rima a pleasant

surprise on her 102nd birthday

• By Matt Slaughter

A SPREYDON rest home that

was at the centre of a Covid-19

cluster had something to

celebrate last week.

George Manning Lifecare &

Village resident Rima Arney

turned 102 on Friday.

Mrs Arney stayed healthy

in spite of there bring a cluster

of 19 confirmed and probable

Covid-19 cases at the rest. Those

within this cluster have now

recovered.

Her daughter Angela Woolsten

Croft praised the job nurses and

staff there did and said she knew

Mrs Arney was in safe hands.

“I had full confidence in

George Manning.

“My mum is 102 and she

can survive Covid,” said Mrs

Woolsten Croft.

Firefighters turned up to the

rest home in a fire engine to

celebrate and Mrs Arney was

reunited with Mrs Woolsten

Croft for the first time since the

lockdown.

Mrs Woolsten Croft, who is

one of her five children, said

her mum was “quite overawed”

when she was surprised with the

fire engine.

Mrs Woolsten Croft said her

family has no connection to

Mrs Arney asked: “Is the Queen

coming?”

In her younger days,

Mrs Arney was a tailoress

and she married Ray Arney in

1941.

About 10 days after they were

married Ray was sent off to fight

in World War 2. He served as

a driver for the forces in Egypt

and Italy for four years before

returning home and working as

a grocer.

Ray died in 1999 and he and

Mrs Arney were married for 58

years.

Mrs Arney is said to put her

longevity down to the grace of

God.

She has lived an active and

healthy life and Mrs Woolsten

Croft said this may be a reason

she has made it to 102.

“They were quite active people.

Mum played basketball as it was

in the olden days and then was

very involved in netball for many

years and then in the latter years

she was quite a very good indoor

bowler,” said Mrs Woolsten Croft.

Mrs Arney was also a

League.

Milestone marked

through Zoom

• By Devon Bolger

GWENDOLINE Capill

marked her 100th birthday

by celebrating with family

over a Zoom video call.

The Cashmere resident

was expecting to celebrate

her birthday on Monday

with about 40 people.

Her son-in-law Ross

Gray said Mrs Capill

still very much enjoyed

the video call where she

was joined by family and

friends from all over the

world.

“A grand-niece from

Los Angeles, friends and

relatives from Australia

and around New Zealand

joined to congratulate her

and wish her well.

“Gwen is an amazing

person, extremely agile of

mind with a remarkable

memory and still able to

look after herself with the

most minimal of assistance,”

he said.

Mrs Capill lives in an

independent cottage at the

Cashmere View Retirement

Village.

“She has experienced

the tail end of the 1918 flu

pandemic, the full force of

Covid-19 100 years later,

interspersed with the Great

Depression, World War 2,

the Christchurch earthquakes

and more.

“She has managed to

keep smiling and inspiring

others throughout all of

these events,” Mr Gray

said.

Mrs Capill grew up and

lived in Phillipstown until

she was in her 60s and has

been an active member of

the community.

This includes being the

chairwoman of the Phillipstown

School committee

for many years.

In 2010 she was presented

with a Spreydon/Heathcote

Community Board

Community Service Award

for her extremely long span

and range of commitment

to Christchurch communities.

“Gwen has a wonderful

sense of humour, and

mischief, and follows the

fortunes and misfortunes

of the nation with great

interest.”
