Blooming beautiful competition

Parents

take issue

with

school

zoning

proposal

COLOUR: Ruth Vercoe who is the founder of Spreydon’s sunflower competition.

• By Avneesh Vincent

SPREYDON WILL be blooming

in sunflowers again this summer.

The second annual sunflower

competition is under way with

about 14,000 seeds being distributed

to 1245 residents.

Said competition founder

Ruth Vercoe: “The aim of the

competition is that it is accessible

to everyone. The seeds are

given out for free and there is no

entry fee which reduces barriers

to participation. Gaining funding

will support this aim.”

About 20 volunteers have

helped deliver the seeds into

residents’ letterboxes.

• By Bea Gooding

A GROUP of parents are

concerned a school has not

followed the correct process

during a proposal to change its

zoning.

Somerfield School intends to

amend its enrolment scheme

home zone to manage the

increasing school roll and

proposes a decrease in the zone’s

size.

But current and prospective

parents are concerned the school

did not follow the rules set out

by the Ministry of Education,

including a lack of consultation.

Principal Denise Torrey said

she was unable to comment until

the school met with the community

at the board of trustees

meeting tonight.

Parents have largely taken

issue to proposed changes to the

western boundary of the zone

because some streets will be cut

in half and some homes will

miss out.

$40k for St Martins stream

ALMOST $40,000 of Immediate

Steps biodiversity funding has

helped some hard-working

locals protect water quality and

biodiversity values along Albert

Stream in St Martins.

The funding, recommended by

the Christchurch West Melton

Water Zone Committee, helped

the Port Hills Park Trust plant

more than 3000 natives as part

of this restoration and enhancement

project.

“The project aligns with the

committee’s priority to reduce

sediment runoff in the Port Hills

and enhance in stream biodiversity

values,” committee chair

Kevin Brown said.

Albert Stream is a tributary of

the Ōpāwaho/Heathcote River

that originates on the western

slope of the Port Hills.

“It’s important that we

have ongoing protection and

enhancement work throughout

these upper catchment areas, as

they all affect the rivers below,”

Brown said.

“By planting waterways in

the higher catchment areas, the

sediment is filtered early, which

means it doesn’t end up in the

Ōpāwaho/Heathcote River and

smother the plant and life that

lives in those lower waterways.

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

“We’ve got a long way to go

to address some of these challenges,

but community-driven

projects like this are a great step

forward,” he added.

Planting the natives was made

even more difficult by earthquake

damage causing uplift,

new springs, and fissures

The area was also overwhelmed

by pest plants including

gorse, broom, boneseed, and

wilding pines.

Supporting women through hardship

• By Bea Gooding

A SENSE of belonging and

purpose has been the driving

force behind the success of a

women’s support group in the

last two decades.

The Women’s Social Support

Group at the Woolston Development

Project recently marked its

20th anniversary of nurturing

the lives of women across the

city.

The group provides social

opportunities for women from

a diverse range of backgrounds,

including those facing unemployment,

mothers of children

with disabilities, or carers of sick

family members for long periods

of time.

WDP manager and facilitator

Bev Adams has been involved

with the group since its inception

and said its importance has

been highlighted now more than

ever due to Covid-19.

“The founding members

identified a concern that local

women were becoming more

isolated due to low income and

increasing health issues,” she

said.

“We’ve seen a lot of changes

over the years, but isolation is

still an issue for women. Covid-19

showed how isolated people

actually were because they hadn’t

MILESTONE: Woolston Development Project manager Bev Adams facilitates the many

outings and activities at the Women’s Social Support Group, which celebrates its

20th-anniversary this year.

built those community connections

over time.”

The women’s group was

established in 2000 and started

with 10 members, but it has now

grown to more than 35.

Activities such as arts and

craft, games and bus outings

were on offer to enable women

to build positive relationships,

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

develop practical leisure skills

and increase awareness of other

opportunities city-wide.

Adams said the dynamic of

the group shifted over time

because members were able to

confide in each other around

issues such as domestic violence,

rather than attending just for the

activities.

This was particularly apparent

following the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes.

Said Adams: “Pre-earthquakes,

women came there to enjoy the

activities. When the earthquakes

hit we were closed for six weeks,

but they still depended on those

connections they had made especially

as many struggled with

losing their houses.

“The whole dynamic of the

group since then has changed.

People are much more caring

and they never hesitate to check

in on each other.”

Many women readily accepted

the care and responsibility of

their families, whether it was

young children, ageing parents

or unwell partners.

Adams said this was often

to the detriment of their own

health and well-being, therefore

the group helped women take

some time out for themselves,

and develop lifelong friendships.

It impacted their lives due

to learning new skills such as

gardening, cooking, making

clothes or having a hobby, which

lifted self-esteem and confidence.

for 20 years

“Some of these women

have been working 24/7 to

look after someone, managing

finances or organising medical

needs and never think about what

they want or need,” she

said.

“They become overtired and

depression is more apparent because

they’re eating, sleeping and

living for other people.

“Coming to a group like this

for two hours just provides

some respite and is a lifting of

the spirits. Having a laugh is

incredibly therapeutic.”

Support Group meets

term.

‘It’s nice to make new friends’

• By Bea Gooding

MAKING FRIENDS in a new

city can often be no easy feat,

but for Gloria Brown, joining a

successful women’s group was a

decision that paid off.

Brown is one of the last

remaining founding members

of the Women’s Social Support

Group.

The Woolston resident moved

to Christchurch from Timaru

in 1992 and joined the WDP

after a spontaneous decision to

give it a go.

Said Brown: “I joined the

group because I didn’t know

many people when I moved

up here, and I was looking for

friends, a job and things to do.

I found a leaflet in my letterbox

about it and I ended up joining

that day.

“It’s great because there’s

always new members coming

through, so it’s nice to make

new friends. Some members

even come from the other side

of town.”

Many came and went over

the years, but now only two

founding members remained –

Brown, along with Patsy Kerr.

Joining in on the fun became

a weekly ritual for Brown, who

seldom misses a meeting.

RITUAL: Gloria Brown was a founding member of the

Women’s Social Support Group and has been part of

the organisation ever since. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Along with arts and crafts,

regular excursions to attractions

such as the Christchurch

Gondola, the Botanic Gardens

or punting on the Avon River

were activities she enjoyed the

most.

The companionship and lifelong

friendships were why she

remained at the group for the

last two decades, especially the

support she felt when she lost

her home in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

“It’s helped a lot of women,

especially when they’ve been

lonely. I don’t know where I

would’ve been [otherwise].”

INSTORE!

The Reacher Guy

by heather Martin

Lee Child is the thriller writer responsible for countless international bestsellers - as well

as the iconic character of Jack Reacher. Yet despite being revered by millions of readers

around the globe, little is actually known about the enigmatic man behind the novels.

The Lee Child origin myth is a much-loved one: it sees the author springing, fully formed,

from the brow of Granada Television. But this is the first time that anyone has revealed

the Lee Child arc: from peaceful obscurity in the Yorkshire Dales to cult status as a literary

rockstar, through to backlash, the changing zeitgeist and intimations of retirement.

The Reacher Guy is an explosive and riveting biography of a much-loved and

mythologised author. In it, Heather Martin looks closely at where Child really sprang from.

Based on disarmingly frank personal conversations and years of correspondence with the

author, as well as privileged access to archival materials, it the nearest thing the world is

ever likely to get to the autobiography Lee Child does not intend to write.

Maiden Voyages

Women and the Golden Age of Transatlantic Travel

by sian evans

How the Golden Age of transatlantic travel between the wars transformed women’s

lives across all classes - a vivid portrait of life on-board the iconic ocean liners. Before

convenient air travel, transatlantic travel was the province of the great ocean liners

and never more so than in the glory days of the interwar years. It was an extraordinary

undertaking made by many women. Some travelled for leisure, some for work; others to

find a new life, marriage, to reinvent themselves or find new opportunities. Their stories

have remained largely untold - until now. Maiden Voyages is a fascinating portrait of

these women, and their lives on board magnificent ocean liners as they sailed between

the old and the new worlds. The ocean liner was a microcosm of contemporary society,

divided by class: from the luxury of the upper deck, playground for the rich and famous,

to the cramped conditions of steerage or third class travel. These iconic liners were filled

with women of all ages, classes and backgrounds: celebrities and refugees, migrants

and millionairesses, aristocrats and crew members.

Sam Bloom: Heartache & Birdsong

by Cameron Bloom samantha Bloom Bradley trevor

Greive

The follow-up to the ABIA award-winning, international bestselling sensation

Penguin Bloom - the miraculous tale of a baby magpie that helped save a young

mother and her family - is a homegrown and international bestseller; soon to

be a major Hollywood movie, starring Naomi Watts and Andrew Lincoln. Sam’s

personal message at the end of the book has resonated powerfully with readers

- where, pulling no punches, she writes about what it is really like to face life in

a wheelchair. In Sam Bloom, Sam tells her own story for the first time - how a

shy but determined Australian girl became a nurse and travelled across Africa.

How she fell in love with a like-minded free spirit, raised three boys and built

a life together on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. And then, in a single horrific

moment, how everything changed. Sam’s journey back from the edge of death

and the depths of despair is so much more than an account of overcoming adversity. Sam’s captivating true story - written

by close friend, New York Times bestselling author Bradley Trevor Greive, and featuring extraordinary photographs taken by

Sam’s husband, Cameron Bloom - is humbling, heartbreaking and uplifting in equal measure. A triumph of raw emotion and

incredible beauty, Sam Bloom: Heartache & Birdsong is a truly unforgettable book.

Think Like a Monk

The secret of how to harness the power of positivity and be happy

by Jay shetty

Jay Shetty, social media superstar and host of the #1 podcast ‘On Purpose’, distils the

timeless wisdom he learned as a practising monk into practical steps anyone can take

every day to live a less anxious, more meaningful life.

In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Vedic

tradition to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Drawing

on ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals

how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie

within all of us. The lessons monks learn are profound but often abstract. Shetty transforms

them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve focus, improve

relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline and give the gifts we find

in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can – and should – think like a monk.

The Secret Life of the Savoy

and the D’Oyly Carte family

by olivia Williams

The story of the Savoy’s founders, through three generations and a hundred years of luxury

In 1889, Victorian impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte opened The Savoy, Britain’s first luxury

hotel. Allowing the rich to live like royalty, it attracted glamour, scandal and a cast of

eccentric characters, with the D’Oyly Carte family elevated to a unique vantage point on high

society.

The Secret Life of the Savoy tells their story through three generations: Richard (a showman

who made his fortune from the Gilbert and Sullivan operas), Rupert (who expanded the

D’Oyly Carte empire through two world wars and the roaring twenties), and Bridget (the

reluctant heiress and last of the family line).

In this, the first biography of the family, Olivia Williams revives their extroardinary cultural

legacy, told through the prism of their iconic hotel and its many distinguished guests.

Book sale is back

CHRISTCHURCH City

Libraries’ annual Big Bargain

Book Sale is back on tomorrow

and Saturday following two

COVID-19-enforced delays.

The Big Bargain Book Sale will

be held at Pioneer Stadium from

9am-7pm tomorrow and Saturday

from 9am-4pm.

The sale was initially set for

March and then postponed until

August because of the pandemicrelated

restrictions.

City council head of libraries

and information Carolyn Robertson

said the popular book sale

is “well overdue but now there

are even more bargains on offer”.

“We will stack up thousands of

withdrawn library books, magazines

and DVDs for the public to

take home and enjoy,” Robertson

said.

“We have found that more

people have returned to reading,

with books filling an often empty

space during lockdown.

“People are also always looking

for a bargain, along with a great

read. At the Big Bargain Book

Sale, we can offer both.”

Sale prices start at $1 for books

for young adults and children,

rising to $3 for adults’ books and

DVDs, CDs and talking books. A

range of motor manuals will also

be available.

A selection of premium art,

landscape and gardening books

will cost slightly more.

People can also pick up five

magazines for just $1.

Call for consultation

period to be extended

• From page 1

Streets affected will be Conway

St, Stanbury Ave, Roberta

Drive and Rose St.

A Somerfield prospective

parent who did not want to

be named for fear of backlash,

objected to most aspects of

the proposal and wanted the

school’s board to extend the

public consultation period until

at least February next year.

Consultation on the matter

closed on September 25.

“The community affected has

not been adequately consulted

on a number of levels; there were

no mail drops to affected households,”

he said.

“Only parents of current

students were likely to stumble

upon it in a school newsletter,

or through talking with other

parents.”

Along with a lack of consultation,

the parent took issue to the

proposed zone as some streets

did not specify which house

numbers would be affected.

A lack of supporting data

behind decisions to reduce the

zone, longer travel distances for

some students and the overlapping

of other zones were also

why they reject the current

proposal.

FACILITIES: Parents

are asking why more

classrooms couldn’t have

been added to Somerfield

School.

The Somerfield parent said

it was “incongruous” that the

school was unable to cope with

a few more students, yet heavily

invested in a recent revamp of

school facilities.

“Somerfield School can find

funding for 10-plus flash, new

classrooms – it has an amazing

custom designed playground

area and bike park – yet it is

unable to accommodate all the

families in our community,” he

said.

“A bike park is great, but how

many new classrooms could

have been put there instead?”

Connecting business with community

• By Avneesh Vincent

CHRISTCHURCH’S first

Learning Exchange platform was

launched last week by Sumner

Bays Union Trust.

The online project will help

connect businesses with the

community.

“It’s a web-based platform

which will also give the small

businesses an opportunity to

give workshops and promote

their products and services

through our platform,” said

Learning Exchange co-ordinator

Eve Wingerath.

She said it would help people

could reach out and learn different

skills from other people in

the community.

The platform was supposed to

be released this January but got

delayed due to Covid-19. Since

the lockdown, a lot of small

businesses had suffered both financially

and emotionally. It also

would help people to come out of

their isolation and feel involved

in a learning process.

About 50 people have volunteered

to teach their skills

through workshops and more

than 100 people have shown

interest to participate.

The current workshops would

include lessons on sewing, composting,

plant-powered kitchens,

and so forth.

Wingerath said these courses

would take place in different locations,

based on the organiser’s

preference, and would be limited

to 12 people. The restrictions

around attendance were due to

the concerns of the venue capacity

and Covid-19 limitations.

The trust had worked with

Bridge2Rocks Timebank so that

people could pay with time.

“You will get one credit per

hour of teaching and you could

use that credit to pay for some

other course you want to learn.

It’s a commerce of time,” said

Wingerath.

About $12000 was invested

in the process of launching this

SKILLS: Eddie Hayes and

Eve Wingerath are working

to make the Learning

Exchange web-based

platform a success.

platform which included costs of

creation of a website, acquiring

teaching resources, databases,

and so forth.

She said the Learning Exchange

at present covered the

communities of Sumner, Redcliffs,

Heathcote, Mt Pleasant,

and Woolston.

“Other communities could

also approach and share what

they want to do with their ideas,

however that is something for

later,” Wingerath said.

Feedback wanted on facilities

GROUPS KEEN to make use

of the city’s new pools and

recreation facilities are being

invited to register their interest.

The city council is encouraging

groups to have their say at

information sessions this month

regarding the future use of the

new Metro Sports Facility, Te

Pou Toetoe: Linwood Pool, and

the Hornby Centre.

“We’ve had great feedback

from people about the designs of

our new facilities, and want to

continue to see a diverse range of

activities happening across our

network of recreation and sport

centres,” said city council head

of recreation, sports and events

Nigel Cox.

“Getting an early indication

of requirements means we can

work together on the allocation of

space and prepare well in advance

of the new facilities opening. This

is all about getting more people

more active more often.”

Te Pou Toetoe: Linwood

Pool will be the first of the

new facilities to open. The

$22m facility is being built in

Linwood Park on the corner of

Linwood Ave and Smith St and is

scheduled to open late next year.

It will have a multi-use

25m lane pool, a deep-water

splash pool, a family spa pool,

learn-to-swim pool, and a pool

for toddlers and water deck.

Community meeting rooms and

a kitchen will also be available.

The Metro Sports Facility will

be the next to open, in 2022. It

is being built on the corner of

Moorhouse Ave and Antigua

St.

It will have a 10-lane 50m

competition pool with spectator

seating, a diving pool, leisure

pools, five hydro slides,

nine multipurpose indoor

courts, group fitness rooms, a

performance movement centre,

an aquatic sensory space, and a

high-performance sports centre

with facilities for coaching and

training.

The third facility – the new

community and recreational

centre in Hornby – is scheduled

to open in late 2022. It will have

a lane pool, a learn-to-swim pool

and multipurpose rooms, as

well as a library and a customer

service centre.

“We are running two drop-in

information sessions later this

month where groups interested

in using these facilities can

learn more about what they will

offer. If people would prefer to

meet with us individually to

discuss their needs we are also

HAVE YOUR

happy to do that,” Cox said.

The drop-in information

sessions will be held in the Level

1 Function Room of the Civic

Offices, 53 Hereford St, from

4.30pm next Monday, and from

4.30pm on October 28.

Groups who would prefer

to meet individually with a
