Mother takes

concerns to

council after

six-year-old’s

weedkiller

encounter

• By Bea Gooding

WHEN NGAHUIA Freed’s sixyear-old

son stepped into a puddle

containing toxic weedkiller

outside their home, she knew she

had to take action.

The Waltham mother is now

rallying her neighbours together

to draft a letter to the city

council for her street to become

glyphosate-free, and wants to

opt out of its street spraying

programme.

Glyphosate, found in weed

killers such as Roundup, has only

been used in places across the city

that were closed to the public, or

where no other methods were viable

since 2016.

However, the chemical was still

being used on residential streets.

Said Freed: “We walked outside

onto the footpath with my sixyear-old,

who didn’t have any

shoes on, and at the bottom of

our steps, he walked across a wet

patch that had just been sprayed.

A City Care worker was just up

the road, masked, and spraying

weeds on the footpath and berm

and he said it was glyphosate.

Alternative spraying methods being trialled

• From page 1

“I’m pretty stunned as I

thought CCC had stopped using

glyphosate, but apparently that’s

just for parks.”

Her concerns followed a reversal

on a proposal earlier this year

to increase its use to save the city

council more than $3 million after

Covid-19 left a $90m financial

gap.

But the plan was weeded out

after public backlash due to the

herbicide’s classification as being

“probably carcinogenic to

humans” by the International

Agency for Research on Cancer.

When Freed contacted the city

council to ask why she was not

made aware of the spraying, they

acknowledged that the chemical

was toxic but said there were

no policies in place to notify

residents.

She was told by staff that spraying

took place three times a year

and that alternative methods

were being trialled to get glyphosate

off streets, such as hand

weeding and steam.

“This really isn’t good. If you

feel strongly about this then I

encourage you all to get together

and opt out,” said Freed.

In Brief

ROAD CLOSURES

Work on the south side

of Ferry Rd as part of the

Woolston Village upgrade has

now started. New drainage

pipes and streetscaping will be

installed to make the village

a safer and more attractive

place to walk, bike and drive.

The entrances of Maronan St

and Catherine St will close one

at a time for up to five weeks

each while drainage work

and road reconstruction take

place. The work is expected to

be completed within the next

eight weeks.

STORMWATER WORK

Construction to replace

brick barrel stormwater

pipes at the intersection of

Brougham St and Selwyn St

has now started. The existing

pipes have reached the end

of their life and require

replacement. The work will

be carried across different

stages to reduce traffic impact.

Brougham St will remain

open at all times, but one-way

closure and road closures on

Selwyn St and Somerset Cres

will take place. The work is

expected to be completed by

March next

year.

Pink Ribbon walk in memory of

FUN: With 5km and 10km routes, the walks

are accessible to everyone, no matter their

age or fitness level.

BEVAN SANDISON is doing the

Pink Ribbon Walk next month in

memory of his mother Raewynne who

lost her battle with breast cancer in

April 2018.

“I’m doing this walk, along with

my kids, Katie, 12, and Emma, 9, to

remember my mum/their nana,” he

said.

“She was an amazingly strong

woman, who inspirationally fought

the good fight for us, for a few years

after being diagnosed, giving us some

extra time to grow new memories

with her.”

Sandison said his mother was

diagnosed after finding a lump in

2013. As it was caught early she was

able to get radiation treatment. The

treatment was considered a success

and the prognosis was great. She was

able to continue working as a secondary

school teacher through until she

retired a year or so later.

“However, very shortly afterwards,

and with big plans ahead for her retirement

with dad, her world and ours,

got turned upside down when one

Sunday morning, whilst lifting a bag

of groceries out of the car boot, a bone

in her upper arm suddenly broke clean

through,” said Sandison.

“X-rays and scans then confirmed

the worst, that her treatment hadn’t

been as successful as had thought, but

rather, had metastasised into stage 4

cancer, having spread to her bones.

“Being given the new prognosis

that stage 4 has no cure, was literally

devastating news, and I will always

vividly remember sitting there with

mum at the hospital receiving the

It’s been an utter pleasure working with Team Bailey on the sale

of 16 Roystone Way. They have been amazing. Professional, yet

caring and understanding.

I was able to contact them at any time of day or evening. They kept

me updated with every move that was made. No question was ever

too much trouble.

I would highly recommend them to anyone selling their home.

“The following couple of years were

riddled with hospital visits, radiation

treatment to shrink tumours that

kept appearing on the spine and other

places, and various drug treatments.

Having damaged a nerve in her arm

when her arm broke, affecting

her hand meaning she was no longer

able to drive, the resultant trips to the

oncologist became a regular part of

live for the family as we all chipped in

to help with transport and to attend

and support mum.

“Through it all, including some

very tough times, the care and

treatment mum received was simply

amazing, and the new oral chemo

pill she was on, did a wonderful job

of extending her time, and allowing

us to enjoy some valuable time with

her, and for her to see her grandkids

get a couple of years older, before she

finally had to leave us.”

•The walk will be held on

Saturday, October 17, in Hagley

Park, with pre-event entertainment

from 2.15pm and the walk starting

at 3pm. Tickets are available online

now at pinkribbonwalk.co.nz

•In the Canterbury District Health

Board region around 400 women

are diagnosed with breast cancer

each year, and every year around

77 will die.

•Pink Ribbon Walks

are annual fundraisers which

celebrate breast cancer survivors,

remember those who have

been lost, promote breast health

awareness, and raise much-needed

funds to work towards Breast

Cancer Foundation NZ vision of

zero deaths from breast cancer.

•With 5km and 10km routes, the

walks are accessible to everyone,

no matter their age or fitness level.

Supporters who aren’t keen on

walking can still take

More than 3300 women a year

are diagnosed with breast cancer

in NZ – that’s nine women a day

90-95 per cent of women who are

diagnosed with breast cancer have

no family history of the disease.

•Around 350 NZ women

under the age of 45 (when free

mammograms start) will be

diagnosed with breast cancer this

year – that’s one woman a day

•More than 650 women will die of

breast cancer this year – about the

size of a large primary school

•The earlier breast cancer is found,

the better the outcome. The 10-

for Keep New

• From page 1

Davids said she was approached

to feature on the show by producers

after the charity was picked as one

of the recipients of the show’s

proceeds.

Davids said the producers looked

through her social media and thought

she would be “entertaining.”

She said she was hoping to raise

awareness about Keep New Zealand

Beautiful by participating in the show.

“For me, it is getting that exposure

for the organisation.

“We are obviously a well-known

charity in New Zealand but it is

always about keeping the charity

current.

“The real goal is really about getting

more people involved in cleaning up

New Zealand.”

Davids is no stranger to the camera.

She drew public attention in 2013

when several “glamour shots” of the at

the time 27-year-old appeared across

mainstream media.

This coincided with several of

her election billboards being stolen

throughout her campaign. Something

which she said at the time left her “a bit

freaked out.”

Remember to vote in by-election

KIA ORA koutou,

September was a big month

for the Waikura/Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board. Now we are back in

level 1 we are looking forward

to easily welcoming more of

you to our board meetings!

While we commemorated 10

years since our first September

4 earthquake we also said

goodbye to our dear friend and

colleague Sally Buck.

Sally was a staunch advocate

for the communities she represented

and worked tirelessly

behind the scenes to make true

positive change in Ōtautahi. I

would like us to acknowledge

the inroads she made for our

city especially in the environmental

sector.

We are now on the cusp

October’s general election

but we also have our Central

Ward Community Board byelection.

Voting papers are out now

and is being conducted by

postal vote. Please make sure

you have your voting papers

filled out and returned in the

pre-paid return envelope by

noon October 16.

The board has now started

the process of looking at derelict

properties on the east side

of Christchurch.

We are seeing massive issues

with many properties that

have been left by owners for

many different reasons.

These properties lower

community well-being and

are causing health and safety

concerns for so many.

We are hoping to create a

plan around locating all properties

that are in our ward area

From the board

Alexandra Davids, chair

Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board

NEEDS: The gardens at Avebury House could be used

for the greater good of the community.

then work with owners, city

council and direct communities

to come to a conclusion

that finally will see antisocial

behaviours, litter, illegal

dumping, health, safety and

fire risks addressed.

We are also advocating for

Heritage Parks in the ward

area for the community to use

to their appropriate and full

capacity.

We, unfortunately, are seeing

our heritage parks with

so many restrictions around

them that they are not able

to cater to their communities

need.

Avebury House gardens

are an example of how we

could be utilising a beautiful

outdoor area for the greater

good and well-being of the

wider community.

The Ferry Rd and Woolston

Village upgrade are still

under way. We want to thank

you all for your patience and

support of the businesses at

this time.

We know it’s a frustrating

time for many but thank you

all for continuing to shop

local.

Planting trees helps transform hill

THE OWNER of a 4ha slice of

paradise overlooking the city has

been working to transform the

area into a valuable recreational

asset for the community.

In the past three years, Christoph

Schacherer has worked with

friends, neighbours, volunteers,

and the wider community to

plant more than 2000 native

trees, shrubs and flaxes.

Plant species such as tōtara,

mānuka, kānuka, and toetoe,

now span 1.2ha of his hill block

in Huntsbury Gully.

Schacherer has owned the

property for around 25 years and

three years ago received $10,000

of Immediate Steps biodiversity

funding.

“We’ve held planting days each

year and there’s always a really

good turnout,” he said.

“We’ve had families, friends

and neighbours all come along

with a packed lunch to sit and

enjoy the view of the city below

while they take a break.”

The area that has been planted

connects the Waterfall track that

runs through Huia Gilpin Reserve,

with Mt Vernon Park, on

the opposite side of the valley.

Schacherer’s neighbour, John

Howard, has been supportive

throughout the project and regularly

helps maintain the plantings,

which may provide habitat

for native bird species including

tūī and kererū, and habitat for

native lizards, once established.

The site previously had significant

gorse cover but weed

control work was carried out

before the planting, and ongoing

maintenance will help the plants

become established, providing

habitat for native bird species.

Much of the area was cleared

by hand and mulch was placed

around the base of each plant to

keep weeds and grass away, giving

the plants freedom to grow.

“Once the plantings have

PARADISE: New plantings

overlook the waterfall

gully, with Mt Vernon Park

opposite. ​

established the gorse will require

a lot less maintenance and the

hillside will become more stable,

which will help reduce erosion in

the area,” said Schacherer.

The lifestyle property is located

on land that is difficult to build

on or develop, making it the

ideal place for a native biodiversity

corridor to be developed.

The city council exchanged

a significant portion of land

around this area many years ago

for more suitable land further

down the valley that could be

built on.

“I wanted to keep the block

and develop it not with buildings,

but with nature. I hope to

covenant it in the future, protecting

it forever,” he said.

“I want to bring back the

connection between people and

nature and I want people to use

the track, have picnics, and bring

their kids along to enjoy the

environment.”

Positive music album proving popular

• By Bea Gooding

MICHAL BUSH has always had

a passion for connecting with

children through the world of

music.

The mother of three has now

become a hit on YouTube, with

her song Kindness is Free, stacking

up more

than 40,000

views.

The positive

song, which

came out in

2019, helped

Michal Bush

her and other

parents talk to

their children about the March

15 mosque attacks and the importance

of kindness.

To help families take a break

from the “overwhelming”

anxieties of the world during

Covid-19, Bush created Can You

Make Music? – a new, 15-track

children’s music album with an

overarching theme of well-being.

Bush said the album was

recorded during the lockdown

and took three to four months

to complete, with the help of a

funding grant from Creative

New Zealand.

“Music is an incredible tool for

heavy issues. I think the world

is so overwhelming, and as a

parent and teacher, it’s a heavy

responsibility to take the anxiety

out of the world to protect your

kids,” she said.

“So this is using music in a

positive way to help children focus

on the goodness in the world,

and as parents, it helps you to

take a deep breath, have fun, and

see that life is beautiful.”

Bush has always loved music

and has been songwriting since

she was a child. She started

focusing on children’s music for

the last eight years following the

birth of her daughter.

Ever since, she has performed

in numerous early childhood

centres, pre-schools, trusts and

online to develop children’s interest

in singing and rhythm with

her Music with Michal Club.

“It’s [music] so much a part

of who I am, how I process the

world, how I get my thoughts out

and how I connect with other

people,” she said.

“I’m so drawn to children’s

music because I love the wonder

and awe of it, it’s the best job

ever. Children are such a wonderful

audience, they come with

so much joy.”

Her songs have been used as a

resource by teachers and parents

across the country. Her children

were a “big” part of the process

having heard the album through

its different stages of completion

and also sang in a few songs.

Said Bush: “Thanks to the

grant from Creative NZ, I was

able to hire my friends who are

amazing producers to help produce

the album, which we made

from our own homes. It was a

very cool process.

“The album brings joy and

connection between parent

and child, which celebrates

the childlike point of view of

the world, sparks creativity in

children and helps parents feel

like kids again.”

•The Can You Make

Music? album was

released last month and
