Determined

Harri runs

with heart

Abel Tasman ‘track’ now in his sights

• By Bea Gooding

SIX-YEAR-OLD Harri Brown doesn’t let

anything break his stride, even if it means

living with a congenital heart defect.

Harri was diagnosed with critical

aortic stenosis shortly after birth. But his

keen interest in running grew immensely,

exceeding all expectations on how much

his little heart could take.

He has now set himself a new

challenge: Running a distance equivalent

to the length of the Abel Tasman track,

covering 60km over a six-week period.

The Big Strides for Brave Hearts is an

initiative by Heart Kids New Zealand

which challenges people to walk, run,

bike or scooter a chosen distance while

raising money for heart families in Canterbury.

Parents Rod and Melanie Brown said

Harri jumped at the chance to take part.

“He loves to help people and he has a

lot of empathy. He knows this is giving

back to other heart kids,” said Mr Brown.

“So far nothing affects his running,

he always seems to be full of energy. It’s

pretty surreal, we never thought he could

go running like that.”

In May, Harri started to run about 5km

a day at various locations in Christchurch,

including at Hagley Park for the fundraiser

– approved by his cardiologist.

Prior to the challenge, Mr Brown was

baffled to learn that his then 5-year-old

could run the 5km Hagley Park course in

23min 27sec.

Harri chose the Abel Tasman distance

because he had physically run part of the

track before.

During a walk with his family last

Christmas, he wanted to run the rest of the

way back to the car park which ended up

covering almost 9km. • Turn to page 2

FORMER All Black Brian

Molloy might be closing in on

90, but he has a cupboard full

of new writing projects, based

around his career in the world of

plants.

The Ngaio Marsh Retirement

Village in Papanui resident has

worn many hats in his life, but

conserving the New Zealand

high country remains a top

priority

During the Covid-19

lockdown, he kept himself busy

continuing to write about his

main field of expertise, even

publishing a new scientific paper

in the last year.

Brian was a director and high

country field representative at

the QEII National Trust, and he

said there was still a great deal

of work to do in terms of the

conservation of New Zealand’s

high country.

“The QEII Trust was set up to

help farmers protect values that

they thought were wonderful

and which people like me, with

expertise, could tell them that

‘yes, that is an amazing thing.’”

The trust works in partnership

with New Zealand landholders

to protect and help manage

natural and cultural features on

their properties.

Because of his involvement

with the trust, he has also met

with Prince William and Queen

Elizabeth II, and in 2018 he was

seated between Prince Harry

and Meghan Markle at another

Royal engagement in New

Zealand.

He previously worked for the

Department of Agriculture,

the Department of Scientific

and Industrial Research and

Landcare Research and has a

43-year relationship with the

Riccarton Bush Trust.

Brian has had plants named

after him, including the Cook

and the hidden spider orchid,

But the rare Marlborough

Rock Daisy was a clear favourite,

he said.

“What makes this daisy

unique is that unlike other New

Zealand rock daisies, its stems

and buds are red.”

He was also an accomplished

sportsman, having toured

Australia with the All Blacks in

1957.

However, he said his

favourite team he was a part

of was the New Zealand

Universities team which faced

the Springboks in 1956, beating

them 22-15.

‘The Anatomy of

Melancholy

Part III: Lost & Found’

Simon van der Sluijs is an artist of Dutch descent and traditional painting

and drawing training. His themes are deeply personal, unconventional, dark,

humorous and disturbing. Three years ago Simon van der Sluijs began his trilogy

exhibition series ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’.

Part I – Identity 2018, Part II – Dissectum 2019 and finally Part III – Lost & Found

June 2020.

Large charcoal drawings challenge with their strong emotional content yet have

a stillness which stops the viewer in their tracks. ‘Journal of Loss’ - 40 small

monochromatic watercolours is a project in itself and acts as a diary of Simon’s

thought process.

Drawings and watercolours show the emotional side of ‘losing and finding’; the

loss of innocence or youth, the loss of those we love and the process of coping.

Mixed media dogs varying in size from the very large to the very small. We are

not sure if they are lost or found. Each dog has its own narrative, but together

they remind us of unconditional love, and that they too can understand loss.

Simon is a multi-disciplinary artist. His work is often metaphorical and he

continues to look inward and reach into his past to find an existential language

we can all find ourselves in.

Beverley loves the kind atmosphere of village life

Beverley says living at

Ngaio Marsh Retirement

Village offers a superb lifestyle

and she has loved making

friends with fellow residents

who form such a positive and

interesting group of people.

She says it has been great

that during the COVID-19 alert

levels the village community

has continued to thrive. She

initiated walks with a couple

of residents during what was

a lovely extended summerearly

autumn period. “People

got out of their houses,

walked sat and talked, it’s

been a lovely atmosphere.”

Ryman Healthcare’s

COVID-19 response began in

late January with restricted

visits to villages for people

who had travelled to affected

areas overseas.

Ryman’s aim has been to

keep the virus out, protect

those residents in care who

were most vulnerable to the

virus, and create safe havens

for residents.

Everyone gets on well,

and staff are on hand to help

newcomers’ join in the fun,

Beverley says. During her

five years at the Papanui

village she has watched

the community grow from

strength to strength. Everyone

is welcomed, and she well

remembers her own first

venture to social drinks.

“The first time I went

down to Happy Hour, you’re

feeling nervous… then I went

to one of the rooms and there

was a massive poster there,

and it said on the poster:

‘always be kind’.

“And I would say, I’ve seen

that kindness so much at Ngaio

Marsh. I believe that they are

always kind. It’s a lovely, lovely

place to live.”

Residents have enjoyed

keeping on the move with

hallway exercise classes and

activities like hallway bingo,

as well as getting out for some

fresh air. When it comes to

the village swimming pool,

Beverley says she loves being

able to swim, joking she is

‘Esther Williams’.

Beverley was brought up in

her family home in Sockburn,

“six miles from the square”,

when it was more of a rural

area with farms devoted to

horse racing at the nearby

Riccarton Racecourse.

She later worked helping in

the field of biochemistry at

Christchurch Hospital.

She loves the fact that

Ngaio Marsh has some nearby

fields and that she lives in a

townhouse that has an aspect

onto Grants Road. Her home

has some large pieces of

artwork on the walls, and she

has plenty of room to display

photos of her family.

As COVID-19 emerged

and the country went into

lockdown, staff helped rollout

Zoom to more than 3,800

devices, so that residents and

their loved ones could talk.

Beverley thought the

pandemic has drawn the

village closer “We’ve learnt

a lot about the villagers and

our village, which has been

really good.”

Beverley moved into

the village from nearby

Beverley enjoys life in her townhouse at Ryman Healthcare’s Ngaio Marsh village.

Bishopdale following the

death of her husband. She has

sons living in Christchurch,

Wellington and another

that has worked on oil rigs

around the world. She initially

visited Ngaio Marsh with her

sister-in-law.

“We came here one day to

a presentation on diabetes,

I put my name down on the

waiting list, and when we

were driving out we passed

my townhouse and I said to

my sister-in-law; ‘that’s the

townhouse I’m having.’ Six

weeks later Marie (the sales

advisor) rang and said the

townhouse is for sale, are

you interested?

“I said I’m not interested,

I’m having it!”

Staff at the village

have always been kindhearted,

and never more

so than during the period of

COVID-19, she says. “I’m

going to cry because

we have been treated

exceptionally. We’ve had our

ADVERTISEMENT

goodie bags, we’ve had

Happy Hour bags, we’ve had

grocery orders,” she says

During COVID-19 alert

levels, residents have

remained upbeat and

commented on how well

they’ve been cared for.

Sales Advisor Marie

Kyle-Stevenson says now

is a great time to come

into the village to take a look

at the available townhouses.

Ryman’s Peace of Mind guarantees provide a little certainty

in your retirement. Our affordable base weekly fee is fixed for life*,

the deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent, one of the

lowest around, and villages provide independent and assisted living,

plus a range of care options. It’s just some of the ways we’re

pioneering a new way of living for a new retirement generation.

Located in Papanui, close to Northlands mall

and cafes, Ngaio Marsh Village is named in

honour of a pioneering New Zealander

who set the standard for others to follow.

Call to return overdue books

MORE THAN 120,000 books

are back on Christchurch City

Libraries shelves in the first week

after reopening.

However, a significant number

of the loans prior to the lockdown

period remained outstanding.

The city council head of libraries

and information Carolyn

Robertson said customers would

not face any fines over postlockdown

overdue books if they

are back by June 15.

“We are asking people to check

around their homes for any

books or other library items that

may have been forgotten while

our libraries have been closed to

the public,” said Ms Robertson.

“Thousands of items have

already been returned in our first

week, and we are thrilled with

the response to our reopening.

“We have extended the loan

period for all of those outstanding

items due from March 22 to

June 15. However, there will be

fines for any late returns from

June 16.”

During the lockdown period,

more than 223,000 items were

on loan from Christchurch City

Libraries.

In the first week following the

reopening to the public, customers

returned 54 per cent of the

outstanding items and 446 new

members joined the library.

“We usually see a rush of borrowers

just before the Queen’s

Birthday holiday as readers check

out books for the long weekend,”

Ms Robertson said.

“We thought it was timely to

remind people to return items as

they picked up their new books.”

After an initial flurry of activity,

there are now more items

being issued than returned.

In the first week back, South

proved the busiest library with

14,093 items issued, followed by

Fendalton (9055) and Tūranga

(8022). In tandem, they recorded

the most returns.

In total, 2382 people joined the

library between March 24 and

May 18, more than double the

normal number.

During April, library members

borrowed 74,686 eBooks and

eAudiobooks, compared with

40,746 in the corresponding

period last year.

at parks around the city.

The focus of the day usually

encouraged people to plant native

trees, but maintenance work of

the area was also included.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Emma Norrish

said this was the third year

the planting day had run and it

typically had good numbers.

She was expecting a smaller

turn out this year to comply with

alert level 2 public gathering

restrictions.

People were encouraged to

bring their own gardening gloves,

spades and morning tea.

ON THE ROAD: Two organists will soon tour Canterbury aged

care facilities in self-contained trucks, providing contactless

concerts.

Musicians on the road for seniors

• By Bea Gooding

TWO ORGANISTS will soon

play at Canterbury rest homes

providing free concerts for

residents and staff alike.

The From Us with Aroha

concert tour will start in early

June, where passionate musicians

Mark Patterson and Dr

Kemp English will be serenading

residents at retirement villages

and palliative care homes nationwide.

While Patterson tours facilities

across the South Island, English

will make his way around the

North Island – both in selfcontained

trucks with enough

sound equipment to power a

small festival.

“We’ll be on the road for a

month, visiting about 180 rest

homes,” said Patterson.

“We wanted to bring something

that can give them a smile

during this frustrating time.’’

A givealittle page has

been set up to get the wheels

rolling, with an aim of raising

$200,000 towards tour-related

costs such as equipment and

truck hire.

By partnering with Age

Concern Canterbury, any excess

money raised over their goal will

go towards the charity.

As the rest of New Zealand

enjoyed freedom post-lockdown,

many in aged care facilities were

still under strict protocols.

Just because restrictions had

eased around the country, people

“shouldn’t care any less” about

older New Zealanders and the

staff who looked after them,

especially for those who chose

to stay at facilities over the lockdown.

Said Patterson: “Our elder

family are one of the most

important people in our community,

they deserve love and

respect – we wouldn’t be here

without them.”

Petition gets pump

track installed

A TEMPORARY pump track

has been installed in Shirley

following a 12-year-old’s petition

to provide one for the area.

Shannon Smith presented the

petition to the Papanui-Innes

Community Board in 2018,

asking to install a track at the

Shirley Community Reserve.

The 48m relocatable track features

bumps and bends suitable

for primary and intermediateage

riders, skateboarders, scooter

riders and roller skaters.

His determination resulted in

the track’s opening, therefore

Shannon and his family were the

first to wheel into action.

Community board chairwoman

Emma Norrish said the new

pump track provided an active

outdoor option for youngsters

and helped revitalise the reserve.

“Shannon spoke to our board,

outlining the importance of a

pump track to the local area,” she

said.

“He pointed out that young

people needed a place to skate,

scoot and bike, and that the nearest

skate park was ‘ages away’.

“We are thrilled that it has all

come together and that we now

have a special place for younger

family members – and that

Shannon is the first to line up.

“Local support had helped

power the project, with consultation

on the pump track attracting

a very positive response.”

HOME & HEATING

Zone Control for your

ducted heat pump

Ducted heat pumps are a highly

efficient way to heat (or cool) your

home. The air from the heat pump

is ducted to several rooms or zones

in your house. Using a zone control

system makes your ducted heat pump

even more efficient, by specifying the

amount of heat required in each area,

so not wasting energy to overheat or

overcool any room.

The AirTouch4 zone control system

from Smooth-Air takes ducted heat

pump air zoning to a whole new level

of comfort and energy efficiency.

AirTouch4 - The Ultimate Zone

Control

Have total control of your comfort

zone: AirTouch4 lets everyone enjoy a

different level of conditioned air in the

room they are in.

Save money on the power bill, without

compromising on comfort, by only

running the heating or cooling where

you need it with Smart Zoning. Plus with

runtime tracking, energy and airflow

management technology, you can enjoy

greater efficiency and savings from your

family’s ducted heat pump.

The AirTouch4 can also connect to

Google Home and 60 Amazon % Alexa.

Not every home is designed equal. Not

every room is either. Temperatures can

often fluctuate from one room to the next

because of sunlight, room activity or other

factors.

With AirTouch4’s Individual

Temperature Control Technology (ITC),

the AirTouch monitors temperatures

and smartly adjusts airflow as needed

around your home with the aid of multiple

wireless temperature sensors instead of a

single sensor in one location. When some

rooms get too hot or cold, the AirTouch

will adjust airflow to maintain your desired

temperature, without wasting conditioned

air on rooms already comfortable.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800

SMOOTH or sales@smooth-air.co.nz

for more information on the AirTouch4

zone control.

The Government is offering Warmer
