Project could fill ‘critical

gaps’ in cycleway network

• 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

and also another section further

along Hansons Lane, Suva St

and Ballantyne Ave after gaining

Government “shovel-ready”

funding.

The route, which starts near

The Princess Margaret Hospital,

will run north across the western

side of the city, eventually

connecting to Papanui via

Canterbury University.

Extending through Spreydon,

Middleton, Riccarton and

Bryndwr, it will also eventually

connect to the six different

cycleways – the Ōpāwaho River

Route, Quarryman’s Trail,

Little River Link, South Express,

Uni–Cycle and Northern Line.

The additional funding for

the two cycleways sought

through the mode shift plan

would provide even further

key linkages throughout the

city while also support

connections with the Selwyn

and Waimakariri Districts.

NZTA director of regional

relationships Jim Harland said

transport budgets or have to

Recognition for work with families

• By Bea Gooding

JAN NOTTINGHAM’S passion

for supporting families of

young patients seeking medical

treatment in Christchurch has

been recognised.

The Ronald McDonald House

night supervisor has been

named as a finalist for the Westfield’s

Local Heroes awards.

Each year, Westfield centres

across the country recognise

nominated role models for the

positive benefit their work has

on the community.

“It felt very humbling to have

the privilege of being one of the

finalists,” said Nottingham.

“It’s not even a job for me,

I’m doing something I love –

making a difference to families

coming through the door and

taking some of the weight off

their shoulders.”

Nottingham lives at the RMH

full-time working night shifts,

making sure families felt at

home while staying at the house,

going above and beyond in doing

so.

Whether it was offering a

shoulder to cry on, providing

entertainment for children or

making sure guests had meals to

come back to after visiting their

child in hospital, she has been

a guaranteed source of comfort

since taking up the role in 2012.

Landing the job as a night

supervisor was a silver lining

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake destroyed her home.

“I was one of many. I’m lucky

that mine has been all sorted as

lots of people are still struggling

with theirs long after the earthquakes,”

she said.

“My home-based business no

longer happened, but in hindsight,

as one door closed another

door opened for me.

“And that door was an amazing

door as it allowed me to take

a new journey into the next stage

of my life – being a part of people’s

lives and giving back.”

It was not always easy to

witness families in times of

distress, Nottingham said, but

the rewarding feeling of creating

a welcoming environment far

outweighed the challenges she

faced.

“Once I started, I knew there

was nothing telling me that

I’d made the wrong decision. I

believe I’m still going to be here

until the day I can no longer do

this position.”

If Nottingham is successful,

the Ronald McDonald House

South Island will receive a grant

of $10,000 as part of Westfield’s

community recognition and

grants programme, which will

be used to upgrade the house’s

education room.

Students to shave heads for fundraiser

• By Bea Gooding

DOZENS OF high school

students will be shaving their

heads in solidarity with young

people facing cancer this

month.

More than 100 St Bede’s

College students will be taking

part in a head-shave fundraiser

for CanTeen after their biennial

event Run for Life was cancelled

due to Covid-19.

The school participated in

CanTeen’s Run for Life every

two years, where teams are

challenged to run 100km over

five days from eight different

locations across the South Island

back to Christchurch.

Event co-ordinator Rachel

Pitcaithly said not giving

back this year “didn’t sit

comfortably” with the students,

but they did not want to let the

pandemic get in the way of their

efforts.

“It was really heartbreaking,

especially for the boys who were

waiting to do the run in their

senior year. It’s something that’s

become so special to our hearts,”

she said.

“It’s a real character-builder,

the friendship and camaraderie

that comes out of it is quite

special.”

The fundraiser was usually a

challenge many students looked

forward to, pushing themselves

to run at least 25km per day.

During the previous event in

2018, students raised $160,000,

which was donated to CanTeen

– a charity that supports young

people aged between 13 to

24-years old come to grips with

the emotional and practical toll

of cancer.

Pitcaithly said continuing the

initiative this year was important

for many students because of the

impact the disease had on their

lives.

They aimed to raise $30,000

towards the cause.

“We all know someone

affected by cancer – we know

of students with cancer or who

lost their parents while at school.

It could be any one of us,” she

said.

It will be no ordinary lunch

break at St Bede’s as the school

transforms into a barbershop for

the day, with family members

and CanTeen staff in charge of

the razors.

The students were feeling

determined, but “nervous,” to

lose their locks, especially with

the school’s upcoming formal,

but valued the fact that this was

already a reality for many people

with the disease.

“They’ll learn about their

inner strength, valuing

something others lose and gives

our boys an honest view on life

and what’s important,” said

Pitcaithly.

$10k for school sport gear

• By Bea Gooding

MAIREHAU HIGH School will

soon benefit from a significant

funding boost to increase

sports participation among its

students.

Granted by the New Zealand

Community Trust, the school

will receive $10,000 towards the

cost of new sports equipment.

The school was in the process

of upgrading its gymnasium

which is due to be completed in

two year’s time, therefore new

equipment such as basketball

backboards and other gear

to promote its physical and

outdoor education programmes

was needed.

Said acting principal Siobhan

Murphy: “We’re extremely

excited and grateful to be able to

purchase much-needed sports

gear. Without their generosity,

this wouldn’t have been possible.

“Kids don’t often have the

equipment at home and during

the lockdown, they weren’t able

to access sport, like attending

after school sports. So we’re

wanting to build this up again as

there’s been a bit of reluctance.”

The NZCT awards grants

to groups and organisations

across the country with a focus

on sporting needs, such as

uniforms, travel costs, salaries,

equipment or facility upgrades.

GRATEFUL: Students of Mairehau High School will soon

benefit from a $10,000 grant in order to boost sport

participation at the school. ​

Securing funding at the school

towards its sports programmes

was spearheaded by health and

education learning team leader

Kyla Boocock.

Murphy said her persistence

and enthusiasm for giving sport

the visibility it needed in order

to boost student participation

was imperative in overcoming

funding obstacles over the last

two years.

“Sports equipment is not

always viewed as a priority like

computers or library books,

or that it’s not perceived to be

directly related to academic

achievement,” she said.

“But by being able to run

around and interact with other

kids, it improves academic

results as it benefits their overall

emotional and physical wellbeing.”

Gymnast returns from injury

to take championship

LILY Bainbridge has bounced

back from an injury-hit 2019 to

star when competitive artistic

gymnastics finally got under way

in the sport’s new Christchurch

home.

The New Zealand representative

claimed the junior international

section of the Canterbury artistic

gymnastics championships with

a score of 43.25 at her home club

last weekend.

Bainbridge, 14, was pleased to

just be competing again at the

new Christchurch School of

Gymnastics at QE II Park, even

if restrictions meant athletes

were limited to one spectator

each.

“Competing again was a relief,

I was proud to do my full programme.

I had a horrible year in

2019, getting injured in June so I

missed the nationals in October,”

she said.

“Getting my skills back was

extra special.”

An abbreviated season continues

when the national gymnastics

artistic super series starts on September

20 at Affinity Gymnastics

in Rolleston. It ends on October

3-4 at the Christchurch School of

Gymnastics.

Roadworks nearing completion

From the board

Emma Norrish, chair

Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board

RESIDENTS OF St Albans,

Edgeware and Mairehau

will be pleased to know that

the numerous roadworks

throughout the suburbs are

nearing completion.

The majority of the work sites

should be finished by mid-October,

with some areas completed

even earlier than that.

We know the impact these

works have had on residents,

businesses and commuters over

the past few months, and we

appreciate the patience shown by

the majority of you throughout

the works.

Unfortunately, there was

always going to be some

disruption and stress involved

when undertaking such a

large number of works in close

proximity, in the short time

frame required, but rest assured

that the end is in sight, and the

local community should come

out the other side with safer

pedestrian and cycle routes,

less rat-running and a network

which gets extra traffic through

the suburbs safely.

There is also good news for

Papanui residents and users of

Main North Rd, with the bus

priority lane improvements project

due to be completed in the

coming weeks.

The new lights are operating

at the Grassmere St intersection,

and soon buses will be using the

new lanes which will make their

travel times more reliable.

Around the corner on Langdons

Rd we are aware of the

traffic issues being caused by the

new Northlink development, and

the effect the increased traffic is

having on the whole area from

Greers Rd through to Northlands

Mall.

Our board is working proactively

with the developers of the

new complex, as well as with

city council staff to determine

what can be done to alleviate

the safety concerns we know

the community has, and we will

keep you updated on this moving

forward.

It’s great to have this development

happening in our area (I

know I love having Rebel Sport

and Kmart closer to home), but

it cannot come at a cost to our

community’s safety.

If you have any issues (trafficrelated

or otherwise) which

you would like to bring to our

attention, please do not hesitate

to contact us, or come and speak

in the public forum at one of our

meetings.

END IN SIGHT:

The Main North Rd

bus priority lane

improvements are

due to be completed

in the coming

weeks. Residents in

St Albans, Edgeware

also expect road

works to be finished

Keeping kids happy while cutting their hair

• By Bea Gooding

Thursday September 10 2020

A NEW salon dedicated

especially for children’s haircuts

aims to take the “shear havoc”

out of the ordeal, especially for

parents.

Decked with styling chairs

shaped like sports cars and fire

engines, Shear Havoc, which

opened last month, also caters to

the needs and requirements of

sensory children.

Owner and stylist Wendy Randall

knew the anxiety that came

with a child’s first few haircuts,

which was why she adopted an

individual approach to promote

inclusivity, such as lowering music

volumes and dimming lights.

“I used to live in Kapiti and

the children’s hair salons there

were doing well. Then I moved to

Christchurch 18 months ago and

thought the city needed something

similar,” she said.

“For me, it’s important for

every child to feel comfortable

coming in. They’re different,

they’re individuals so we can’t

have a one size fits all approach.”

While most adults found haircuts

to be a therapeutic process,

it was often distressing for young

children, which was why Randall

opened a space where kids felt

comfortable and at ease.

“Lots of kids don’t like having

their heads touched or are scared

of water, and normal salons can

be quite noisy with lots of people

around, so it can be distressing,”

she said.

“Having distractions like fun

chairs and iPads to watch videos

on has definitely made the experience

less stressful and endurable

for families.

“We also have test-drive appointments

where kids can come

in and meet stylists or have a

look around before they come

back again for their haircut to

help them deal with any anxiety.”

The salon had an abundance of

natural light to promote a warm

and fun atmosphere, with plenty

of space for kids to move around

and a play area filled with toys

and colouring-in activities.

Parents could also get their

haircut during their child’s appointment.

Randall said it has been “quite

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

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

NOR’WEST NEWS

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.

INchallenging

Thriving

Times

Hands up, that’s right, hands up if this year has

been one of the most challenging you’ve ever

experienced. I’ve got my hand up, have you?

We live, as we all know, in uncertain times.

There’s a daily bombardment of change

all around us. So, no matter what your

occupation or vocation, it’s worth thinking

about how to manage your levels of wellbeing

and optimism as we continue travelling through

2020.

Here are some of the tips that have helped me

move forward personally and professionally

whilst dealing with feelings of vulnerability.

Structure

Often the first thing to go in times of stress, but

it’s important to maintain habits that help rather

than hinder and structure provides that. Sleep,

great food and exercise (whether in large or small

doses) helps, especially for your mental health,

and I know of many who reestablished regular

exercise habits during our initial lockdown

period. If you are one of these people, I hope

that like me you’ve been able to keep it up.

Lighten Up

Humour works, especially in the form of a good

belly laugh, and I can assure you that if you watch

too much television, particularly the news, you’ll

notice how easy it is to lose not only your sense

of humour but your sense of hope.

Spend time with mates and family who want to

lift your spirits, not dampen them.

Surround yourself with positive people. This goes

without saying at one level but sometimes it’s a

big ask. Seek out, especially, people who focus

on solutions rather than problems … better still,

try to be that person.

Rather than say “I can’t do it,” try “how can we get

this done?”

Language is such a powerful element and when

applied in a positive manner, that power is

magnified.

Let Go

Finally, let stuff go, and try not to personalize

every little slight. Everyone, yes everyone, is going

through their own unique set of challenges and

although we’re constantly reminded to be kind,

it’s a new world we’re all learning to navigate.

So how about it? Do your best, wear a smile and

push forward.

The Market

But before I sign off, let’s talk about the market.

Contrary to what various experts said during and

immediately after our initial lockdown period,

Geeta Rose

the market hasn’t slumped and nor have prices

dropped.

In fact, it’s been – to reference a well-known

movie title – fast and furious! With considerable

numbers of sales, even surpassing the number

of sales at the same time last year, and some

equally exceptional prices. There’s a palpable

urgency in the marketplace, whether it’s to be

sold before our elections or to purchase and

settle whilst interest rates are so low.

The big questions are: how long will it last, what

changes are ahead and how does that translate

for all the parties that are active in the market?

We can be certain that we will find out in time

and, whatever happens, I’ll be doing my best to

remain calm, constructive and optimistic.

Spring is here (at last), so let’s enjoy it!

Solutions for your radiator and

air conditioning needs found

at Christchurch Radiators

Your vehicle is an important asset to your

family and helps keep your schedule on

task, so making sure your automobile is

operating safely and at its best is important.

Being aware of car sounds and liquid

measurements is very helpful with the

maintenance of your vehicle. If you

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

radiator or air conditioning systems, look

Radiators is Chris and he has been servicing

both radiators and air conditioning systems

for decades. His shop has the reputation for
