Potter’s adult playground

idea gathers momentum

• By Louis Day

A PUSH is being made for

an adult playground to be

installed in the area in a bid to

tackle feelings of loneliness and

isolation.

The Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board has listed exploring

the provision of an adult

playground as one of its priorities

in its 2020-2022 plan.

Board chairwoman Karolin

Potter said she has been keen

on the idea of establishing a

playground primarily for adults

somewhere within the community

for a long time.

Adult playgrounds have proven

to be popular overseas in countries

such as England, Germany,

Canada, China and Spain with

Barcelona having more than 300

senior playground installations.

A study from the University

of California, Los Angeles stated

that when recreational areas

are made attractive for adults,

particularly the elderly, they can

reduce the prevalence of loneliness,

provide opportunities for

inter-generational interaction

and create a sense of belonging.

Megan

children to the playground and

not having one to call her own.

“The younger generation have

Potter said she first fell in love that really nice playground at

with

Woods Megan

the idea when it was raised the bottom of Cashmere, they

in a forum for the elderly over 10 have them everywhere. This

years ago where a woman said playground should be about

she was sick of taking her grand-

combating loneliness for adults,”

Potter said.

“People with no family nearby

with them being overseas, which

happens a lot in New Zealand,

and a dwindling peer group, they

would say to themselves when

they wake up: ‘I am going to the

playground.’ They might go there

to exercise but would probably

end up socialising as well which

would do them good,” she said.

Potter said she envisaged the

playground including all sorts of

things such as a climbing wall,

concrete table tennis table and

exercise equipment.

Community library opens

A STRIKING new “edition” of

a dedicated community library

has opened in Opawa.

Following nearly 10 years

without a permanent base,

the volunteer-run Opawa

Public Library finally has a

home, sharing the new city

council-funded, purposebuilt

building with the local

children’s library.

The public library was operating

out of the former children’s

library space following

NEWSLINE ​

Brizzell said that it is “exciting

after nine-and-a-half years

of not having an operating

library on that original site to

finally have a beautiful new,

light, bright and warm building.”

She said that contractors

have successfully navigated the

Covid-19-enforced lockdown,

“working hard” to deliver the

new library.

“The library has always

been an important part of

the Opawa community,” said

Brizzell.

“It’s a social hub, where

people meet friends, make new

friends, have some really great

discussions and some gossip,

plan social occasions, ask for

directions to or some advice

and, oh yes, get a good book or

two or DVD out.

“The new building is a

real boost for locals who have

seen considerable change

in our community, partly

because of the earthquakes

and also the loss of key

services – such as the post

office, doctor and chemist –

from the area.”

The new library offers books

and DVDs, along with jigsaw

puzzles for adults.

While there is a small charge

for the adult books and the

DVDs, the books for children

are free to borrow.

The building also houses

a small community meeting

room, which is available for

hire.

The volunteer-run

library is open on Monday,

Wednesday and Friday from

2pm to 4pm and 6.30pm to

8pm. It is also open on Tuesday

from 2pm to 4pm and on

Thursday and Saturday from

10am to noon and 2pm to

Under Covid-19 alert level

2, measures are in place to

ensure people can maintain

physical distancing in the

library building.

Cycleway network gaps could be filled

• By Louis Day

WORK COULD be done to fill

“critical gaps” in the cycleway

network as part of a plan to

encourage people out of cars

and into alternative modes of

transport.

The Greater Christchurch

Partnership’s mode shift plan, a

collaboration between councils

across the region, outlines a

range of short-term initiatives

to encourage people away from

single-occupancy vehicle use and

onto bikes and public transport

in a bid to reduce congestion and

pollution.

This includes spending $68

million on enhancing the

existing cycleway network.

This would see $46 million

of the money go towards the

network’s two major cycle routes,

the South Express and Nor’West

Arc.

The South Express cycleway

connects the central city

with Templeton, travelling

through Hornby, Sockburn,

Middleton, Riccarton and Addington.

Work is currently under

way on the first section of the

Nor’West Arc cycleway between

Cashmere Rd and Annex Rd

Condition of footpaths raised

From the board

Karolin Potter, chair

Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board

THE CITY council is one of the

largest employers in the South

Island and has many employees

who have expertise, knowledge

and history in their jobs which

are often highly specialised.

They are public servants

and contrary to the cliche, the

service to the public aspect of

the job is icing on their cake as

it is on mine, it is the public that

make the work often the best job

you can imagine ever doing.

This last couple of weeks we

have had several people presenting

to the board about the work

that we do in our ward. Two

were senior staff talking about

roads, footpaths, potholes and

repairs. The bane of all our lives.

We discussed various kinds of

road seal, that which is usually

used in suburban roads and

that used on high use roads,

the balance of expenditure and

duration, the science of potholes

and their repairs, the budget and

its limitations.

I raised the issue of footpaths

and the dips and slope on so

many of them that provide passage

for cars across the footpath

but make walking, passage for

wheelchairs and people who

depend on walkers very difficult.

Why do cars need so much

care and attention in their 2m

traverse of a footpath at the expense

of walkers and prams and

people in wheelchairs?

The conversation was interesting

and worthwhile and

gave us food for thought for our

upcoming submissions on the

Long Term Plan.

It was made even more fascinating

the next day at the public

forum of our board meeting

when a resident with considerable

expertise presented to us on

roads, potholes and cycleways.

And, of course, he had a sometimes

different view on their

design, methodology and materials

from that of staff the night

before and was as interesting and

informative as they had been.

Plan to engage

with community

• From page 1

“Feelings of social isolation

and loneliness amongst the older

population is a really serious issue

and it is overlooked so often.

This idea of Kaorlin’s is doing

something to specifically address

it,” he said.

The community board plans to

engage with the community to

see if there is a desire for an adult

playground in the area before

undertaking a feasibility study on

the matter and pursuing a business

case.

If the project is found to be

viable it will then advocate for

funding to be assigned to it from

the city council’s Long Term Plan

budget. This could prove to be a

difficult task as the city council

looks to streamline its budget in

response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Potter was unsure how much

an adult playground would cost

to install but thought the cost

would be outweighed by the “joy

it would bring to the community.”

Dressing and

empowering women

A myriad of

groups help keep

our community

moving. Reporter

Bea Gooding

speaks to Dress

for Success

Christchurch

executive manager

Ginnie Rhodes

about how the

charity helps

women prepare

for the workforce

Could you tell me a bit

about what Dress for

Success is and how it

came to be what it is

today?

Dress for Success is

a global not-for-profit

organisation that

empowers women.

Dress for Christchurch

has been operating in

Canterbury for 17 years.

Our local vision is:

Empowering women –

providing women in need

within our community

with the guidance,

support, tools and

confidence to pursue their

employment goals and

shape their own financial

future.

Since starting operations

in 1997, Dress for Success

Worldwide has expanded

to almost 150 cities in 25

countries and has helped

more than 1.2 million

women work towards selfsufficiency.

Each affiliate focuses

its programmes on their

own community needs. In

Christchurch we have the

Dressing Programme, and

Careers Centre which runs

job search and retention

seminars, resilience

programmes and one on

one careers coaching and

job search.

What issues are women

currently facing while

entering the workforce,

and why?

The women we support

are so varied including

those on low or no income,

challenging domestic

situation, mental health

challenges, never worked

before, immigrants, young

women, transgender

women and women reentering

life after prison.

One of the biggest issues

is a lack of confidence and

self-esteem, which is one

of our main focuses and

the aim of the Dressing

Programme is to help

this. It takes a very short

time for women to feel

less confident about

their abilities, often

IMPACT: Executive manager Ginny Rhodes, of

charity Dress for Success, who empower women

with the tools they need as they enter the

workforce.

not recognising the

transferable skills they

have developed alongside

professional skills and

knowledge.

Lack of job searching

‘know-how’ in this rapidly

changing world. CVs,

cover letters, online

applications, how to

effectively use social media

profiles and platforms.

Juggling families

is always up there

for women, finding

part-time employment

and employers who

have flexible working

arrangements. One of the

plus sides of Covid-19 is

the ability to work from a

home base.

Why is an organisation

like this important in

Christchurch?

We are the only

organisation in Canterbury

supporting women in need

in this way, the Dressing

Programme particularly is

unique to our organisation.

We see over 400 women

per annum so we know

there is a real need in the

community. The women

are referred by more than

40 referral organisations

across Canterbury.

We also support women

in “one-off” situations like

attending a court case or

other significant events.

Last year we dressed a

mother of four in an outfit

for her graduation.

How has Dress for

Success impacted women

in order for them to

thrive in the workplace

and beyond?

Women who come

for a dressing or careers

appointment can vary

in age from 16-years-old

to 70-years-old, we work

to support and empower

women by providing

not only clothing for job

search preparation but

also other tools and skills

needed to succeed. We

provide ongoing support

once in employment

through our “Women in

Work”’ retention seminars

and mentoring.

Here are some

comments from previous

clients:

“I would say I’m over the

moon. Confidence levels

really high after being

attired property. Great

staff, good advice and

some different styles that I

wouldn’t normally choose

for myself. Very happy and

huge thanks to you all.”

“You have no idea how

positive and amazing

impact you have on me.

Thank you all. You girls

made me feel like a

woman again, I was

lacking in confidence but

you helped me believe I am

worth it.”

“Lovely experience and

attention. I felt important.

Lovely ladies thank you

very much.”

In what ways can

communities support

Dress for Success to help

women reach their full

potential, and why?

As an organisation

that is community

funded we do require

funds to operate,

other organisations or

communities can support

us by raising funds for us,

individual and corporate

donations are also greatly

valued. We also rely on

“in-kind” donations of

make-up, good quality

clothing, shoes handbags

and jewellery.

The Facebook page and

website explains more

about us and how to

donate.

notice your car overheating or if your air

conditioning is not working, chances are

your car radiator or air conditioning system

is on the blink.

If this is the case and your car radiator is

not operating the way it should be, it can

have serious consequences, because your

radiator is an essential part of keeping your

car safe and operational on the road.

When you have questions about your
