Blooming beautiful competition<br />

Parents<br />

take issue<br />

with<br />

school<br />

zoning<br />

proposal<br />

COLOUR: Ruth Vercoe who is the founder of Spreydon’s sunflower competition.<br />

• By Avneesh Vincent<br />

SPREYDON WILL be blooming<br />

in sunflowers again this summer.<br />

The second annual sunflower<br />

competition is under way with<br />

about 14,000 seeds being distributed<br />

to 1245 residents.<br />

Said competition founder<br />

Ruth Vercoe: “The aim of the<br />

competition is that it is accessible<br />

to everyone. The seeds are<br />

given out for free and there is no<br />

entry fee which reduces barriers<br />

to participation. Gaining funding<br />

will support this aim.”<br />

About 20 volunteers have<br />

helped deliver the seeds into<br />

residents’ letterboxes.<br />

A GROUP of parents are<br />

concerned a school has not<br />

followed the correct process<br />

during a proposal to change its<br />

zoning.<br />

Somerfield School intends to<br />

amend its enrolment scheme<br />

home zone to manage the<br />

increasing school roll and<br />

proposes a decrease in the zone’s<br />

size.<br />

But current and prospective<br />

parents are concerned the school<br />

did not follow the rules set out<br />

by the Ministry of Education,<br />

including a lack of consultation.<br />

Principal Denise Torrey said<br />

she was unable to comment until<br />

the school met with the community<br />

at the board of trustees<br />

meeting tonight.<br />

Parents have largely taken<br />

issue to proposed changes to the<br />

western boundary of the zone<br />

because some streets will be cut<br />

in half and some homes will<br />

miss out.<br />

$40k for St Martins stream<br />

ALMOST $40,000 of Immediate<br />

Steps biodiversity funding has<br />

helped some hard-working<br />

locals protect water quality and<br />

biodiversity values along Albert<br />

Stream in St Martins.<br />

The funding, recommended by<br />

the Christchurch West Melton<br />

Water Zone Committee, helped<br />

the Port Hills Park Trust plant<br />

more than 3000 natives as part<br />

of this restoration and enhancement<br />

project.<br />

“The project aligns with the<br />

committee’s priority to reduce<br />

sediment runoff in the Port Hills<br />

and enhance in stream biodiversity<br />

values,” committee chair<br />

Kevin Brown said.<br />

Albert Stream is a tributary of<br />

the Ōpāwaho/Heathcote River<br />

that originates on the western<br />

slope of the Port Hills.<br />

“It’s important that we<br />

have ongoing protection and<br />

enhancement work throughout<br />

these upper catchment areas, as<br />

they all affect the rivers below,”<br />

Brown said.<br />

“By planting waterways in<br />

the higher catchment areas, the<br />

sediment is filtered early, which<br />

means it doesn’t end up in the<br />

Ōpāwaho/Heathcote River and<br />

smother the plant and life that<br />

lives in those lower waterways.<br />

The revolution<br />

in heat pumps<br />

is here now!<br />

“We’ve got a long way to go<br />

to address some of these challenges,<br />

but community-driven<br />

projects like this are a great step<br />

forward,” he added.<br />

Planting the natives was made<br />

even more difficult by earthquake<br />

damage causing uplift,<br />

new springs, and fissures<br />

The area was also overwhelmed<br />

by pest plants including<br />

gorse, broom, boneseed, and<br />

wilding pines.<br />

Following the planting, and<br />

ongoing community trapping<br />

efforts targeting possums and<br />

some significant improvements<br />

in and around Albert Stream,<br />

including:<br />

• A reduction in sediment<br />

flowing into the stream.<br />

• Documented sightings of<br />

Supporting women through hardship<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

A SENSE of belonging and<br />

purpose has been the driving<br />

force behind the success of a<br />

women’s support group in the<br />

last two decades.<br />

The Women’s Social Support<br />

Group at the Woolston Development<br />

Project recently marked its<br />

20th anniversary of nurturing<br />

the lives of women across the<br />

city.<br />

The group provides social<br />

opportunities for women from<br />

a diverse range of backgrounds,<br />

including those facing unemployment,<br />

mothers of children<br />

with disabilities, or carers of sick<br />

family members for long periods<br />

of time.<br />

WDP manager and facilitator<br />

Bev Adams has been involved<br />

with the group since its inception<br />

and said its importance has<br />

been highlighted now more than<br />

ever due to Covid-19.<br />

“The founding members<br />

identified a concern that local<br />

women were becoming more<br />

isolated due to low income and<br />

increasing health issues,” she<br />

said.<br />

“We’ve seen a lot of changes<br />

over the years, but isolation is<br />

still an issue for women. Covid-19<br />

showed how isolated people<br />

actually were because they hadn’t<br />

MILESTONE: Woolston Development Project manager Bev Adams facilitates the many<br />

outings and activities at the Women’s Social Support Group, which celebrates its<br />

20th-anniversary this year.<br />

built those community connections<br />

over time.”<br />

The women’s group was<br />

established in 2000 and started<br />

with 10 members, but it has now<br />

grown to more than 35.<br />

Activities such as arts and<br />

craft, games and bus outings<br />

were on offer to enable women<br />

to build positive relationships,<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

develop practical leisure skills<br />

and increase awareness of other<br />

opportunities city-wide.<br />

Adams said the dynamic of<br />

the group shifted over time<br />

because members were able to<br />

confide in each other around<br />

issues such as domestic violence,<br />

rather than attending just for the<br />

activities.<br />

This was particularly apparent<br />

following the 2010 and 2011<br />

earthquakes.<br />

Said Adams: “Pre-earthquakes,<br />

women came there to enjoy the<br />

activities. When the earthquakes<br />

hit we were closed for six weeks,<br />

but they still depended on those<br />

connections they had made especially<br />

as many struggled with<br />

losing their houses.<br />

“The whole dynamic of the<br />

group since then has changed.<br />

People are much more caring<br />

and they never hesitate to check<br />

in on each other.”<br />

Many women readily accepted<br />

the care and responsibility of<br />

their families, whether it was<br />

young children, ageing parents<br />

or unwell partners.<br />

Adams said this was often<br />

to the detriment of their own<br />

health and well-being, therefore<br />

the group helped women take<br />

some time out for themselves,<br />

and develop lifelong friendships.<br />

It impacted their lives due<br />

to learning new skills such as<br />

gardening, cooking, making<br />

clothes or having a hobby, which<br />

lifted self-esteem and confidence.<br />

“Some of these women<br />

have been working 24/7 to<br />

look after someone, managing<br />

finances or organising medical<br />

needs and never think about what<br />

they want or need,” she<br />

said.<br />

“They become overtired and<br />

they’re eating, sleeping and<br />

‘It’s nice to make new friends’<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

MAKING FRIENDS in a new<br />

city can often be no easy feat,<br />

but for Gloria Brown, joining a<br />

successful women’s group was a<br />

decision that paid off.<br />

Brown is one of the last<br />

remaining founding members<br />

of the Women’s Social Support<br />

Group.<br />

The Woolston resident moved<br />

to Christchurch from Timaru<br />

in 1992 and joined the WDP<br />

after a spontaneous decision to<br />

give it a go.<br />

Said Brown: “I joined the<br />

group because I didn’t know<br />

many people when I moved<br />

up here, and I was looking for<br />

friends, a job and things to do.<br />

I found a leaflet in my letterbox<br />

about it and I ended up joining<br />

that day.<br />

“It’s great because there’s<br />

always new members coming<br />

through, so it’s nice to make<br />

new friends. Some members<br />

even come from the other side<br />

of town.”<br />

Many came and went over<br />

the years, but now only two<br />

founding members remained –<br />

Brown, along with Patsy Kerr.<br />

Joining in on the fun became<br />

a weekly ritual for Brown, who<br />

seldom misses a meeting.<br />

RITUAL: Gloria Brown was a founding member of the<br />

the organisation ever since. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

Along with arts and crafts,<br />

regular excursions to attractions<br />

such as the Christchurch<br />

Gondola, the Botanic Gardens<br />

or punting on the Avon River<br />

were activities she enjoyed the<br />

most.<br />

The companionship and lifelong<br />

friendships were why she<br />

remained at the group for the<br />

last two decades, especially the<br />

support she felt when she lost<br />

her home in the February 22,<br />

2011, earthquake.<br />

INSTORE!<br />

The Reacher Guy<br />

by heather Martin<br />

Lee Child is the thriller writer responsible for countless international bestsellers - as well<br />

as the iconic character of Jack Reacher. Yet despite being revered by millions of readers<br />

around the globe, little is actually known about the enigmatic man behind the novels.<br />

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

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

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

rockstar, through to backlash, the changing zeitgeist and intimations of retirement.<br />

The Reacher Guy is an explosive and riveting biography of a much-loved and<br />

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

Based on disarmingly frank personal conversations and years of correspondence with the<br />

author, as well as privileged access to archival materials, it the nearest thing the world is<br />

ever likely to get to the autobiography Lee Child does not intend to write.<br />

Maiden Voyages<br />

Women and the Golden Age of Transatlantic Travel<br />

by sian evans<br />

How the Golden Age of transatlantic travel between the wars transformed women’s<br />

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

convenient air travel, transatlantic travel was the province of the great ocean liners<br />

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

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

find a new life, marriage, to reinvent themselves or find new opportunities. Their stories<br />

have remained largely untold - until now. Maiden Voyages is a fascinating portrait of<br />

these women, and their lives on board magnificent ocean liners as they sailed between<br />

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

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

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

with women of all ages, classes and backgrounds: celebrities and refugees, migrants<br />

and millionairesses, aristocrats and crew members.<br />

Sam Bloom: Heartache & Birdsong<br />

by Cameron Bloom samantha Bloom Bradley trevor<br />

Greive<br />

The follow-up to the ABIA award-winning, international bestselling sensation<br />

Penguin Bloom - the miraculous tale of a baby magpie that helped save a young<br />

mother and her family - is a homegrown and international bestseller; soon to<br />

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

personal message at the end of the book has resonated powerfully with readers<br />

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

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

shy but determined Australian girl became a nurse and travelled across Africa.<br />

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

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

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

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

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

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

incredible beauty, Sam Bloom: Heartache & Birdsong is a truly unforgettable book.<br />

Think Like a Monk<br />

The secret of how to harness the power of positivity and be happy<br />

by Jay shetty<br />

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

timeless wisdom he learned as a practising monk into practical steps anyone can take<br />

every day to live a less anxious, more meaningful life.<br />

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

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

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

how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie<br />

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

them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve focus, improve<br />

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

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

The Secret Life of the Savoy<br />

and the D’Oyly Carte family<br />

by olivia Williams<br />

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

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

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

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

society.<br />

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

who made his fortune from the Gilbert and Sullivan operas), Rupert (who expanded the<br />

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

reluctant heiress and last of the family line).<br />

In this, the first biography of the family, Olivia Williams revives their extroardinary cultural<br />

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

Book sale is back<br />

CHRISTCHURCH City<br />

Libraries’ annual Big Bargain<br />

Book Sale is back on tomorrow<br />

and Saturday following two<br />

COVID-19-enforced delays.<br />

The Big Bargain Book Sale will<br />

be held at Pioneer Stadium from<br />

9am-7pm tomorrow and Saturday<br />

from 9am-4pm.<br />

The sale was initially set for<br />

March and then postponed until<br />

August because of the pandemicrelated<br />

restrictions.<br />

City council head of libraries<br />

and information Carolyn Robertson<br />

said the popular book sale<br />

is “well overdue but now there<br />

are even more bargains on offer”.<br />

“We will stack up thousands of<br />

withdrawn library books, magazines<br />

and DVDs for the public to<br />

take home and enjoy,” Robertson<br />

said.<br />

“We have found that more<br />

people have returned to reading,<br />

with books filling an often empty<br />

space during lockdown.<br />

“People are also always looking<br />

for a bargain, along with a great<br />

read. At the Big Bargain Book<br />

Sale, we can offer both.”<br />

Sale prices start at $1 for books<br />

for young adults and children,<br />

rising to $3 for adults’ books and<br />

DVDs, CDs and talking books. A<br />

range of motor manuals will also<br />

be available.<br />

A selection of premium art,<br />

landscape and gardening books<br />

will cost slightly more.<br />

People can also pick up five<br />

magazines for just $1.<br />

Call for consultation<br />

period to be extended<br />

• From page 1<br />

Streets affected will be Conway<br />

St, Stanbury Ave, Roberta<br />

Drive and Rose St.<br />

A Somerfield prospective<br />

parent who did not want to<br />

be named for fear of backlash,<br />

objected to most aspects of<br />

the proposal and wanted the<br />

school’s board to extend the<br />

public consultation period until<br />

at least February next year.<br />

Consultation on the matter<br />

closed on September 25.<br />

“The community affected has<br />

not been adequately consulted<br />

on a number of levels; there were<br />

no mail drops to affected households,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Only parents of current<br />

students were likely to stumble<br />

upon it in a school newsletter,<br />

or through talking with other<br />

parents.”<br />

Along with a lack of consultation,<br />

the parent took issue to the<br />

proposed zone as some streets<br />

did not specify which house<br />

numbers would be affected.<br />

A lack of supporting data<br />

behind decisions to reduce the<br />

zone, longer travel distances for<br />

some students and the overlapping<br />

of other zones were also<br />

why they reject the current<br />

proposal.<br />

FACILITIES: Parents<br />

are asking why more<br />

classrooms couldn’t have<br />

been added to Somerfield<br />

School.<br />

The Somerfield parent said<br />

it was “incongruous” that the<br />

school was unable to cope with<br />

a few more students, yet heavily<br />

invested in a recent revamp of<br />

school facilities.<br />

“Somerfield School can find<br />

funding for 10-plus flash, new<br />

classrooms – it has an amazing<br />

custom designed playground<br />

area and bike park – yet it is<br />

unable to accommodate all the<br />

families in our community,” he<br />

said.<br />

“A bike park is great, but how<br />

many new classrooms could<br />

have been put there instead?”

Connecting business with community<br />

• By Avneesh Vincent<br />

CHRISTCHURCH’S first<br />

Learning Exchange platform was<br />

launched last week by Sumner<br />

Bays Union Trust.<br />

The online project will help<br />

connect businesses with the<br />

community.<br />

“It’s a web-based platform<br />

which will also give the small<br />

businesses an opportunity to<br />

give workshops and promote<br />

their products and services<br />

through our platform,” said<br />

Learning Exchange co-ordinator<br />

Eve Wingerath.<br />

She said it would help people<br />

could reach out and learn different<br />

skills from other people in<br />

the community.<br />

The platform was supposed to<br />

be released this January but got<br />

delayed due to Covid-19. Since<br />

the lockdown, a lot of small<br />

businesses had suffered both financially<br />

and emotionally. It also<br />

would help people to come out of<br />

their isolation and feel involved<br />

in a learning process.<br />

About 50 people have volunteered<br />

to teach their skills<br />

through workshops and more<br />

than 100 people have shown<br />

interest to participate.<br />

The current workshops would<br />

include lessons on sewing, composting,<br />

plant-powered kitchens,<br />

and so forth.<br />

Wingerath said these courses<br />

would take place in different locations,<br />

based on the organiser’s<br />

preference, and would be limited<br />

to 12 people. The restrictions<br />

around attendance were due to<br />

the concerns of the venue capacity<br />

and Covid-19 limitations.<br />

The trust had worked with<br />

Bridge2Rocks Timebank so that<br />

people could pay with time.<br />

“You will get one credit per<br />

hour of teaching and you could<br />

use that credit to pay for some<br />

other course you want to learn.<br />

It’s a commerce of time,” said<br />

Wingerath.<br />

About $12000 was invested<br />

in the process of launching this<br />

SKILLS: Eddie Hayes and<br />

Eve Wingerath are working<br />

to make the Learning<br />

Exchange web-based<br />

platform a success.<br />

platform which included costs of<br />

creation of a website, acquiring<br />

teaching resources, databases,<br />

and so forth.<br />

She said the Learning Exchange<br />

at present covered the<br />

communities of Sumner, Redcliffs,<br />

Heathcote, Mt Pleasant,<br />

and Woolston.<br />

“Other communities could<br />

also approach and share what<br />

they want to do with their ideas,<br />

however that is something for<br />

later,” Wingerath said.<br />

Feedback wanted on facilities<br />

GROUPS KEEN to make use<br />

of the city’s new pools and<br />

recreation facilities are being<br />

invited to register their interest.<br />

The city council is encouraging<br />

groups to have their say at<br />

information sessions this month<br />

regarding the future use of the<br />

new Metro Sports Facility, Te<br />

Pou Toetoe: Linwood Pool, and<br />

the Hornby Centre.<br />

“We’ve had great feedback<br />

from people about the designs of<br />

our new facilities, and want to<br />

continue to see a diverse range of<br />

activities happening across our<br />

network of recreation and sport<br />

centres,” said city council head<br />

of recreation, sports and events<br />

Nigel Cox.<br />

“Getting an early indication<br />

of requirements means we can<br />

work together on the allocation of<br />

space and prepare well in advance<br />

of the new facilities opening. This<br />

is all about getting more people<br />

more active more often.”<br />

Te Pou Toetoe: Linwood<br />

Pool will be the first of the<br />

new facilities to open. The<br />

$22m facility is being built in<br />

Linwood Park on the corner of<br />

Linwood Ave and Smith St and is<br />

scheduled to open late next year.<br />

It will have a multi-use<br />

25m lane pool, a deep-water<br />

splash pool, a family spa pool,<br />

learn-to-swim pool, and a pool<br />

for toddlers and water deck.<br />

Community meeting rooms and<br />

a kitchen will also be available.<br />

The Metro Sports Facility will<br />

be the next to open, in 2022. It<br />

is being built on the corner of<br />

Moorhouse Ave and Antigua<br />

St.<br />

It will have a 10-lane 50m<br />

competition pool with spectator<br />

seating, a diving pool, leisure<br />

pools, five hydro slides,<br />

nine multipurpose indoor<br />

courts, group fitness rooms, a<br />

performance movement centre,<br />

an aquatic sensory space, and a<br />

high-performance sports centre<br />

with facilities for coaching and<br />

training.<br />

The third facility – the new<br />

community and recreational<br />

centre in Hornby – is scheduled<br />

to open in late 2022. It will have<br />

a lane pool, a learn-to-swim pool<br />

and multipurpose rooms, as<br />

well as a library and a customer<br />

service centre.<br />

“We are running two drop-in<br />

information sessions later this<br />

month where groups interested<br />

in using these facilities can<br />

learn more about what they will<br />

offer. If people would prefer to<br />

meet with us individually to<br />

discuss their needs we are also<br />

HAVE YOUR<br />

SAY: Groups<br />

are encouraged<br />

sessions will be held in the Level<br />

Offices, 53 Hereford St, from<br />

4.30pm next Monday, and from<br />
