on film

CREATIVE: A film showcasing New Brighton’s beauty and resilience, by Claudia Stewart (left) and Tabitha Palacios is in the running for a people’s choice award

at an international film competition.


• By Bea Gooding

TWO CHRISTCHURCH creatives have

joined forces to showcase the best of

New Brighton on the world stage, set to

inspire hope for life beyond Covid-19.

We got the Sunshine, a film by Claudia

Stewart and Tabitha Palacios is in the

running for a people’s choice award at

global film competition, Musicbed Reopen


Filmmakers were challenged to share

their stories and hopes for the future,

shedding light on “reopening” the world

in a better place than what it was before,

especially with cultural and economic

changes to come.

Said Stewart, of Opawa: “When you

join a neighbourhood like New Brighton,

it’s more than buying a house. You’re

joining a community of people that will

support you and that helps each other do

life together.

“Early on we knew New Brighton

would be great visually, but also the

deeper messages of hope, community,

creativity and supporting local were

exceptionally demonstrated by the community.”

She said they chose New Brighton due

to the beauty of its beachside nature,

focusing on its rich heritage and history

of community and resilience, especially

after the February 22, 2011, earthquake

and now Covid-19.

Pet food bank demand soars

• By Bea Gooding


food bank has paid off for an

Avonside animal shelter, which

has been “overwhelmed” with

demand since opening its doors

last month.

The Arc Pet Food-Bank, run

by small animal rescue Mabels

Arc, has been able to provide pet

food for more than 150 people

within its first four weeks of


The food bank supports

those who have been struggling

financially to feed their pets as

well as those who were feeding

and rescuing stray animals.

Mother and daughter duo

Kat Willan and Nirvana

Barbara are the faces behind

the new food bank service

which has been running twice

a week, supporting anywhere

between five and 25 people

per day.

“We originally started off as

a small animal rescue, but it

has been put on hold after we

realised how hard it was to get

consistent help and donations,”

said Barbara.

“We’ve opened a food bank in

the meantime as we still want to

help people and their animals.”

“A lot of people have been

needing help,” she said,

following financial hardships

due to Covid-19, with some

now living in cars or spending

thousands of dollars on vet

bills with no money left over to

purchase pet food.

“It feels good to be able to help

people who won’t have to stress

or give up animals because

they’re under hardship,” she


The Arc relied on self-funding

along with monetary and food

donations from the public and

other animal rescue shelters to

stay afloat.

It was because of this that

they were seeking to become a

registered charity to open up

funding options in order to

provide for more pet owners

across Christchurch.

“It feels good to be able to

help people who won’t have

to stress or give up animals

because they’re under


Nirvana Barbara

Barbara believed their

service was important for the

community because they offered

food for a wider range of pets

than other animal shelters,

which focused on cats and dogs.

SUPPORT: The Arc Pet Food-

Bank organisers Nirvana

Barbara (left), and Kat Willan

have been experiencing high

demand since its opening last


She expected to see demand

continue to rise as the country

was still grappling with the

effects of Covid-19.

“It’s really overwhelming for

both of us knowing these people

are going home and are able to

feed their animals. Some have

been turning up in tears,” she


The service is currently

running from Willan’s house

and aims to secure a permanent

facility in the future, with the

aim of setting up a delivery

system for those unable to access

the food bank in person.




• From page 1

With everything that the

community had gone through,

the beach was the one thing that

remained a constant, bringing

people together through its


“We believe our greatest asset

is our people, and community

initiatives such as the Food Pantry

and Blanket Bank are a great

example of how sharing resources

can fill those financial gaps some

may face,” she said.

The project was filmed and edited

in about three weeks after the

nationwide lockdown was lifted.

“During the lockdown it did get

lonely for some, and we realised

that we should be out there connecting

with our neighbours,

sharing ideas and nurturing those

relationships,” said Stewart.

“It’s important to connect

with people who have common

interests to share ideas or even to

start a business. Together we can

get through this and make up for

what we have lost.”

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and

as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

Scientists at Rush University Medical

Center found those most deficient

in vitamin B12 to have the smallest

brain mass and the lowest scores on

tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration and brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains and score

higher on cognitive tests than those with

lower levels. Yet another recent landmark

study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain

shrinkage and declining cognitive

function. B12 is essential for energy

production, cell health, regulation of

mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and

repair, and prevention of homocysteine

a serious cardiovascular risk factor

that is known to cause damage and

plaque in the blood vessels. It can also

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease

risk of vision

loss in a study

of participants

aged 40+ who

supplemented with

B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further

reduce B12 absorption. The good news

is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin

sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the

mouth and thru bypassing the digestive

tract have been shown to effectively raise

B12 levels in the body.

Further detailed information is

available from the Natural Health

Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural

Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757 We are

always happy to help!


Brain fog, forgetful, feeling old, low energy,

mood swings, difficulty sleeping, pins & needles,

numbness in legs

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking

brain due to a lack of vitamin B12.

Supplementation of methylcobalamin B12

has been shown to reduce the rate of

brain shrinkage & support memory & brain

function. B12 is also known to protect against

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk

factor that can also damage the hearing,

eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential

for energy, cell health & nerve function.

30-year dedication

brings pier back to life

The New Brighton

Museum has a rich

history spanning more

than 100 years. Peggy

Butterfield writes

monthly about the

historical display at the

heritage museum

The old New Brighton

Pier was opened in 1894,

and was much loved by the

locals, but it gradually developed

rot over the years

and was finally demolished

on October 12, 1965.

The community was

devastated by this loss and

over the next 30 years they

set about the huge number

of fundraising ventures.

The Pier and Foreshore

Society was formed, and

chocolate wheels were held

every Saturday, raffles,

dances, selling bricks, a

huge number of activities.

Nans Grans were also

formed and they raised

thousands of dollars at

their concerts.

It was the dedicated

community who raised

the $2 million which was

then matched by the city

council after much lobbying

by people such as Peter

FUNDRAISER: Members from a longboarders club

volunteered to build this house in 1995 to raise

funds for the New Brighton Pier.



Dunbar and Mike Stevens.

One of the biggest fundraisers

was the building

of a house in Aston Drive,

North Shore.

This was a mammoth

task undertaken by the New

Brighton Working Men’s

Longboarders Club. The

project co-ordinator was

Ross Tyson, and the building

project spanned over

12 months. The labour was

provided by more than 70

club members, all voluntary.

The club had tradesmen

such as plumbers, roofers,

stoppers, and joiners. Most

of the building materials

were donated, with businesses

from as far away

as Dunedin contributing

to the cause, as well as

many local businesses

such as Placemakers, New

Brighton, and Rookwood


The project was finished

in 1996 and the house went

to auction boosting the

pier funds by more than


New Brighton was, and

is, a very loyal community

and we have to thank these

determined, dedicated

residents who put so much

into building the new

pier which was opened on

November 1, 1997.

A TALL and elegant bird,

the white-faced heron is

actually quite new to New


This heron species

introduced themselves

in the 1940s and are now

commonly seen in our

estuary, McCormacks Bay,

Charlesworth Wetland,

Linwood canal, Bexley and

even on sports fields and

paddocks – but only after

heavy rain, as they prefer to

search for their food while

wading in shallow water.

They are awesome birds

to observe while they stand

patiently. Without moving

as much as a feather, they

wait for prey to be within

sight to then at lightning

speed grab either a small

fish, crab, worm, mouse,

lizard or frog.

STALKING: You’ll often see the white-faced heron

standing motionless while hunting.

Lizards and frogs are

more common around the

estuary than most people

are aware of.

White-faced heron’s nest

near our estuary in the tops

of pine and macrocarpa

trees particularly favouring

South New Brighton Park

and the lower Avon River.

How can we help these

birds thrive? Keep dogs

on the lead when walking

near the estuary as to not

disturb them while feeding

or resting.
