Further speed reductions

mooted for Marshland Rd

IT MIGHT soon take longer to

drive one of the busiest roads in

north-west Christchurch, ending

months of speculation and

completing a suite of changes for

the area’s roads.

Marshland Rd, from near

Main North Rd/Spencerville Rd

to Prestons Rd, might soon have

a 60km/h speed limit. The current

speed limit for that stretch

of road is 70km/h.

If approved by the city council,

the plan would add to previous

changes to sections of the

Marshland Rd/Main North

Rd corridor where 70km/h

and 80km/h limits dropped to

60km/h.

The council adopted those

changes last September, but the

decision to cut the limit on the

road south of the railway line to

Prestons Rd was deferred.

The local community boards

asked for the deferral under the

weight of submissions against

the plan, and the need to know

more about possible safety improvements.

The Papanui-Innes and Coastal

Burwood community boards

recently met and heard some

improvements would outstrip

the council’s budget.

Traffic engineer Wayne Anisy

told the boards signals and

GUIDELINES: Marshland Rd, from near Main North Rd/Spencerville Rd to Prestons Rd, might soon have a 60km/h

speed limit adding about 90sec to a journey.

safety improvements at the

intersections would “require

funding well-in-excess” of what

was available.

The road would need to be

widened to accommodate

median and side barriers, which

would come at a significant cost.

Seal widening could costs “millions,”

the boards were told.

Committing to such improvements

would also create uncertainty

as to when any safety

improvements could be carried

out, Anisy advised.

Minor safety improvements,

such as vegetation clearing, sight

boards and stop controls had

been carried out at some key

locations.

However, they had not

changed the overall risk rating of

the road, he said in his report.

There were high-risk intersections

and roadside hazards and

some in the area, including

Ouruhia School, had concerns

about road safety.

The safe and appropriate speed

assessment of the road needed

to meet national guidelines is

60km/h, he said. •Turn to page 5

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

PASSION: Night

supervisor Jan

Nottingham,

of the Ronald

McDonald House

South Island, is

year’s Westfield

Local Heroes

SLOAN ​

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.

$10k for school sport gear THE BOTTLE Lake Forest

• By Bea Gooding

Thursday September 10 2020

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. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

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.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

“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.”

Fairy houses to move

fairy village that magically

mushroomed in size during the

Covid-19 lockdown is on the

move.

Later this month city council

park rangers will oversee the

careful relocation of the hundreds

of homemade fairy houses

that are hanging on trees in

Bottle Lake Forest Park, near the

Juliet Rd entrance.

The first of the tiny houses

appeared in the forest before

Covid-19, but they grew dramatically

in number during the alert

level 4 lockdown when creating

fairy houses became a popular

pastime for local families.

“They’ve brought a touch of

magic to the forest,’’ said Bottle

Lake Forest Park ranger Warren

Hunt.

“Unfortunately the spot where

the fairy village is located is in

an area of the forest where the

trees will soon be ready for logging.

“We love seeing the look of

delight on children’s faces when

they see the fairy village so we’re

going to carefully detach the

fairy houses from the trees and

move them to another part of the

forest, so the fairies can continue

to live an enchanted life,’’ Hunt

said.

Hunt said the city council was

organising a working bee on

September 29 and asked for the

PEGASUS POST

public’s help to move the

houses.

“It’s in the school holidays

so we’re hoping lots of families

will come along and help us to

relocate the houses.’’

When the fairy houses are

relocated, they will be tied to

the trees rather than nailed or

screwed on to prevent the trees

being damaged.

Your Local Views

Be part of the clean-up week

KIA ORA, I’d like to take

the opportunity to share with

you some of the ways you can

be involved in your community

in the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote area for our

September update.

We have just finished our

“have your say” campaign for

community uses for the Te Pou

Toetoe: Linwood Pool complex

but wanted to let you know

that while we still have plenty

of time during construction we

are always keen to hear your

thoughts on how we can make

this the most user-friendly space

for all in our community.

Whether it is adult swim

classes, educational sessions

for the community or fun days

that bring the community

together we would love to hear

more of your ideas. Get in

touch with one of your local

representatives.

Keep Christchurch Beautiful

and the SALT District are

partnering on a very special

From the board

Alexandra Davids, chair

Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board

high-profile clean-up event.

This is part of the national

KNZB G.J. Gardner Clean Up

Week.

We are hoping you and

your business/friends/

neighbours will be keen to

put together a small team of

volunteers who will spend one

hour sprucing up a local spot of

your choice.

The rubbish bags (and

disposable gloves if you don’t

have your own) will be available

to collect from the good folks

at these places any time from

September 7:

• The Conscious Club (Boxed

Quarter)

• Friday Creative (Cotter’s

Lane, 245 St Asaph St)

• Smash Palace (180 High St)

• Black & White Coffee

Origins (Lichfield St)

• The Tool Lendery

(Placemaking at One Central,

Gap Filler)

The SALT District clean-up

NEW BEGINNINGS: The Opawa library is

now operating again from the original site

established in 1936.

will take place on Friday (on

your own schedule). No sharps

to be collected.

Take full bags to SALT Square

between 4pm and 5pm. And

share in a community barbecue

to celebrate your awesome joint

mahi.

Opawa Public library has

finally opened.

After 10 years the community

finally has its library back up

and running. It is located on

the corner of Opawa Rd and

Richardson Tce, the same site

where the original library was

established in 1936.

The library meeting room will

also be available for community

groups to hire so please get in

touch at opawapubliclibrary@

gmail.com or swing by and visit

the friendly team Monday to

Saturday.

Changes

would align

to majority

of feedback

•From page 1

Keeping the current speed limit

at 70km/h would “align with the

majority of feedback” received

when the changes were mooted

last year, he said.

Then, there were claims the

change would mean slower

travelling times and lost

productivity, and increased

congestion and driver

frustration.

Council research suggested

travel times might drop by 90sec

at most.

The boards were advised this

should be balanced against the

$5.07 million social cost of a fatal

crash, or of a serious injury crash

($926,000).

They were also told congestion

was more directly linked to

traffic volume and congestion at

intersections, and speeds were

much lower than the speed limit

during peak times.

The Christchurch Northern

Corridor played a part – traffic on

Marshland Rd was expected to

grow 20 per cent by 2026 on 2015

volumes, compared to 93 per cent

without the corridor.

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.
