Linwood Pool.<br />

to get<br />

major<br />

revamp<br />

A MULTI-MILLION dollar<br />

upgrade will get under way next<br />

month in the heart of Woolston<br />

this month.<br />

As part of the city council’s<br />

Ferry Rd Suburban Master Plan,<br />

a significant streetscape project<br />

in <strong>July</strong> will aim to revitalise<br />

Woolston Village, while keeping<br />

the industrial character of the<br />

150-year-old area.<br />

The work will be done by<br />

Citycare, and will include<br />

car parks, mini plazas, wider<br />

footpaths, cycle lanes and new<br />

trees and plants along Ferry Rd<br />

from Portman St to St Anne’s<br />

School.<br />

Following its completion, city<br />

council planning and delivery<br />

transport manager Lynette Ellis<br />

said it will become easier to<br />

walk, ride, drive or find a park in<br />

Woolston.<br />

She said to ensure minimum<br />

disruption, contractors will reline<br />

the underground wastewater<br />

pipes along the main road at the<br />

same time.<br />

Ms Ellis said the upgrade<br />

complements the area’s popular<br />

new community library and busy<br />

thoroughfare.<br />

Upgrade will bring ‘renewed<br />

vibrancy to Woolston’<br />

•From page 1<br />

“The makeover will revitalise<br />

one of the city’s oldest areas<br />

while honouring the history of<br />

the industrial past,” Ms Ellis<br />

said.<br />

“It will lift the village, drawing<br />

more people and making it<br />

easier and safer to walk around<br />

Woolston.<br />

“We will have wider footpaths<br />

and a lower speed limit, complemented<br />

by improved crossings,<br />

street lighting and 32 off-street<br />

car parks behind the library and<br />

55 on-street spaces.<br />

“We want to create a sustainable<br />

and accessible village that<br />

benefits the whole community.<br />

“The upgrade will bring<br />

renewed vibrancy to Woolston,<br />

prompting people to stop, shop<br />

and wander.”<br />

The new village “gateways” will<br />

feature trees, paving and kerb<br />

build-outs at Portman St and<br />

St Anne’s School to define the<br />

entrances to the area, along with<br />

a 30km/h speed limit.<br />

A 40km/h speed limit will also<br />

apply on Catherine, Maronan,<br />

Oak, Heathcote and Glenroy Sts<br />

as well as a section of St Johns St.<br />

Club a chance for dementia carers to connect<br />

JOURNEY: Jeff and Kathy Bradley have been married for 26<br />

years, after they were introduced to each other by a friend.<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

JEFF BRADLEY met the love of<br />

his life at a food and wine festival<br />

26 years ago. Instantly, he knew<br />

he wanted to marry her.<br />

He and Kathy tied the knot six<br />

weeks later, ushering in years of<br />

“blissful” marriage. But now the<br />

couple are caught in the “long<br />

goodbye”.<br />

Mrs Bradley was diagnosed<br />

with dementia about nine<br />

years ago. It was a twist in their<br />

decades-long love story, but Mr<br />

Bradley’s love did not falter.<br />

“They called it a ‘long goodbye.’<br />

There was a lot of crying, but the<br />

love is pretty strong between us,”<br />

he said.<br />

“We’re madly in love with each<br />

other.”<br />

Mr Bradley, of Avondale,<br />

remembered the life the pair led<br />

before the dementia diagnosis.<br />

The accomplished clarinet<br />

player would often play around<br />

the world, including in Australia,<br />

Singapore and Hong Kong.<br />

“She [Mrs Bradley] never<br />

missed a gig in 26 years, and I<br />

played at hundreds of gigs,” he<br />

said.<br />

“Wherever she was, I played<br />

a special number for her, which<br />

was an original and became her<br />

tune.”<br />

It started to get tough for the<br />

pair when everyday tasks such as<br />

putting on clothes, going to the<br />

bathroom and cooking became a<br />

challenge for Mrs Bradley.<br />

Mr Bradley admitted it had<br />

not been an easy journey. His<br />

own health suffered as the couple<br />

faced their greatest challenge.<br />

‘I’ve just gone through 12<br />

weeks of sheer hell living<br />

by myself’<br />

– Jeff Bradley<br />

“It was getting me down at<br />

some points, it was very hard<br />

on me and I ended up having a<br />

nervous breakdown.”<br />

Mrs Bradley now lives in a<br />

home. Before the Covid-19<br />

lockdown, he would visit her<br />

twice a day. Lockdown left him<br />

“completely alone” and unable to<br />

see her.<br />

“I’ve just gone through 12<br />

weeks of sheer hell living by myself,”<br />

he said.<br />

“I had no other support as all<br />

of my family have passed, aside<br />

from my niece who visited occasionally.”<br />

Mr Bradley knew he would not<br />

be alone in either his experience<br />

of lockdown or in the challenge<br />

of caring for a seriously ill<br />

partner.<br />

So, he has started a club for the<br />

partners of those with dementia,<br />

Parkinsons and other serious<br />

illnesses.<br />

It was a struggle to find a group<br />

in Christchurch where he could<br />

connect emotionally with others<br />

who related to his position, he<br />

said.<br />

There was a chance his club was<br />

a first for the city, he said.<br />

Everyone had their own story<br />

of coping and loss.<br />

“One lady I spoke to was<br />

devastated and said she just sits at<br />

home and cries.<br />

“A lot of people are in the same<br />

situation.”<br />

Mr Bradley said the club will<br />

be “a place to grab a tea or coffee<br />

and meet others, see what they’ve<br />

gone through and how they’re<br />

facing it”.<br />

He said he hoped grow the club<br />

beyond Christchurch, to places<br />

such as Auckland, Wellington<br />

and Dunedin, and so create a<br />

support network across New<br />

Zealand.<br />

update<br />

Dear Wigram Resident,<br />

If we all think back to the the New Year, all the plans and the resolutions we<br />

were making, I don’t think any of us imagined a first half of the year like the<br />

one we have experienced.<br />

Authorised by Hon Megan Woods MP, Parliament Buildings, Wellington<br />

I want to take the opportunity to thank the 66,396 people in the Wigram<br />

Electorate for the part they played in the “Team of 5 Million” and working<br />

together to eradicate Covid-19.<br />

Our Covid-19<br />

Response &<br />

Recovery<br />

I am so proud of the way we responded to the<br />

call to stay home and save lives in our corner of<br />

Christchurch. Like you, I spent Level 4 and Level<br />

3 at my home in the Wigram electorate.<br />

I enjoyed the walks around my neighbourhood<br />

and the daily greetings to neighbours I had not<br />

previously met.<br />

My teddy bear stood guard at my front window<br />

and I spent a very different ANZAC morning at<br />

my front gate enjoying the very loud broadcast<br />

of The Last Post.<br />

Thanks to all of you who sent me photos of<br />

your Easter efforts. We have some very creative<br />

people in our electorate!<br />

Once we moved to Level 1 it was lovely to begin<br />

visiting businesses, organistaions and people<br />

all over the electorate. Great to see projects<br />

moving ahead at pace.

Local Businesses,<br />

Skills & Jobs<br />

The economic recovery from Covid-19 will<br />

require us to all unite once again.<br />

Local businesses need our support and I<br />

encourage all of you to support the many<br />

wonderful businesses in our area. Whether<br />

that’s the butcher, restaurant, coffee shop,<br />

clothing store or even the local kitchen design<br />

and joinery store down the road.<br />

Our “Wigram Team of 66,396” must stand<br />

together again and continue the great work<br />

helping our economy move forward to be even<br />

better than before.

Community<br />

Wigram is such a diverse and wonderful area<br />

with a strong sense of community spirit. This is<br />

shown through many different events, meetings<br />

and groups.<br />

One of my favourites would have to be the<br />

Rowley Mamaz, who have set up their own local<br />

community patrol, working with local police to<br />

help keep their area safe.<br />
