‘Antisocial<br />

behaviour’<br />

upsets<br />

Moncks Bay<br />

residents<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

YOUTHS PARTYING into<br />

the early hours of the morning,<br />

littering and even defecating<br />

near a car park in Moncks Bay<br />

is causing tension within the<br />

community.<br />

In a letter to the Linwood-<br />

Central-Heathcote Community<br />

Board, the Redcliffs Residents<br />

Association said it had received a<br />

number of complaints from residents<br />

living on Main Rd and Cliff<br />

St about some of the “antisocial<br />

behaviour” at the car park which<br />

sits next to the Christchurch<br />

Yacht Club.<br />

The association has said cases<br />

of loud music and noise keeping<br />

residents awake throughout the<br />

night has got noticeably worse<br />

over the past year. It has also received<br />

reports of part of the beach<br />

surrounding the car park being<br />

littered on and even used as a<br />

toilet. Youths have also been seen<br />

entering Cliff St to use the red<br />

zone for toileting purposes.<br />

The association wants the city<br />

council to consider installing a<br />

chain to prevent cars using the car<br />

park at night.<br />

It also wants a temporary<br />

Portaloo to be installed at the car<br />

park. • Turn to page 5

Toy dogs comfort children in hospital<br />

FOR HENNY van Veen,<br />

knitting toy dogs is a labour of<br />

love that has been bringing joy<br />

and calm to children having<br />

ultrasounds at Christchurch<br />

Hospital.<br />

Knitted by the radiographic<br />

assistant, the toys are given<br />

to some of the hospital’s child<br />

patients, aged between four and<br />

10, to help them overcome their<br />

fears.<br />

For some children, an ultrasound<br />

is a traumatic experience<br />

and receiving a cuddly toy at the<br />

end of it makes it a bit better, van<br />

Veen said.<br />

“We only get happy faces<br />

if we give them a dog or one<br />

of the little knitted teddies<br />

from chaplaincy service,” she<br />

said.<br />

Van Veen was inspired to start<br />

knitting about 18 months ago<br />

after seeing the small teddies<br />

around the hospital.<br />

“I have never done it before<br />

in my life and learned how by<br />

watching YouTube.”<br />

She usually knits in the evening<br />

while listening to music or<br />

watching television, “just to keep<br />

my hands busy.”<br />

It takes her four weeks to finish<br />

a dog, as she only knits for<br />

about an hour a day.<br />

“And a lot of dogs are not to<br />

HIKING BOOTS<br />

& SHOES<br />

my liking once finished so I<br />

make another one.”<br />

The patterns come from<br />

library books or the internet,<br />

and van Veen has made “just<br />

about every breed of dog you can<br />

name.”<br />

Breeds she has knitted<br />

include corgi, poodle, german<br />

shepherd, jack russell, miniature<br />

schnauzer, pug and border collie.<br />

In Brief<br />

PEDESTRIAN SAFETY<br />

A resident has raised concerns<br />

about pedestrian safety along and<br />

near Worsleys Rd at a Spreydon-<br />

Cashmere Community Board<br />

meeting. They spoke about a lack<br />

of pedestrian links between and<br />

within Westmorland East Valley<br />

Reserve, Cashmere Esplanade<br />

Reserve and the new stormwater<br />

basin in the Cashmere Estate<br />

subdivision, which have become<br />

popular recreation destinations.<br />

The community board has<br />

requested city council staff advice<br />

on the network of footpaths<br />

within popular recreation<br />

destinations, and on options to<br />

improve pedestrian connectivity,<br />

safety and accessibility, including<br />

reducing the speed limit on<br />

Worsleys Rd.<br />

Caring for elderly recognised again<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

ROCHELLE Moore’s passion<br />

and dedication for supporting<br />

the elderly has been recognised<br />

for the second year in a row.<br />

The Cashmere resident has<br />

been named village manager<br />

of the year at the recent Bupa<br />

Awards for going the extra mile<br />

for her residents at Bupa Cashmere<br />

<strong>View</strong> Retirement Village.<br />

The village also won care home<br />

of the year out of the company’s<br />

48 care homes across the country.<br />

The awards recognised homes<br />

and individuals each year who<br />

excelled across all aspects of<br />

their roles and were measured<br />

against criteria such as resident<br />

satisfaction, safety, community<br />

connections and more.<br />

Moore was also last year’s village<br />

manager of the year and said<br />

she was overwhelmed to have<br />

been nominated a second time.<br />

“I was actually overwhelmed,<br />

you don’t see things like this<br />

coming,” she said.<br />

“For me, it feels like the perfect<br />

position; I believe I have the best<br />

job in the world. Even on the<br />

not-so-good days, I can’t imagine<br />

being anywhere else.”<br />

Moore’s role included overseeing<br />

the day-to-day operations at<br />

the village, facilitating residents’<br />

health care needs, organising<br />

PRIDE: Rochelle Moore has been named village manager of the year at the Bupa Awards,<br />

for her efforts at Bupa Cashmere <strong>View</strong> Care Home and Retirement Village. ​<br />

events and activities, and managing<br />

any refurbishments.<br />

She cherished her tight-knit<br />

relationship with each of her<br />

residents and being able to care<br />

for all 106 of them as they moved<br />

into the next stage of their lives.<br />

The camaraderie between<br />

residents and staff she witnessed<br />

during the height of the Covid-19<br />

pandemic in the country was one<br />

of the many rewarding aspects of<br />

her job.<br />

But the role came with its challenges.<br />

“For me, it’s doing the best I<br />

can every day. We’re a family,”<br />

she said.<br />

“When we pressed pause on<br />

our lives as we navigated our way<br />

through the pandemic, fighting<br />

a battle we knew nothing about,<br />

it was such a pleasure to witness<br />

the kind-heartedness between<br />

[the residents].<br />

“But lately I have struggled<br />

as several residents have moved<br />

into further care and have left<br />

the village. They need that next<br />

level of care, but it’s still a loss to<br />

the village.”<br />

Moore moved to Christchurch<br />

to be closer to her parents 10<br />

years ago after living in Sydney<br />

as a nurse for 27 years.<br />

She joined Bupa in 2011 to<br />

continue her nursing work<br />

before moving into her current<br />

role at the retirement village six<br />

years ago.<br />

Her sister, Lynda Mackay, is<br />

also the village manager at Bupa<br />

Parklands on Papanui Retirement<br />

Village, and she believed<br />

their close relationship with their<br />

grandparents was the inspiration<br />

behind working in aged care.<br />

“I followed her [Mackay] into<br />

nursing. For us, having that close<br />

relationship with our grandparents<br />

was the inspiration behind<br />

working in aged care,” she said.<br />

“Being able to bring my nursing<br />

experience into the village<br />

manager role has also been<br />

invaluable.”<br />

We have dealt with Cameron Bailey for years because he has an<br />

excellent understanding of<br />

the housing market<br />

and his knowledge and expertise is second to none.<br />

Stream restoration complete<br />

A PROJECT to restore and<br />

enhance Cashmere Stream has<br />

now been completed after more<br />

than four years.<br />

Armed with spades, local<br />

landowners and the community<br />

helped the Cashmere Stream<br />

Care Group plant more than<br />

2500 native plants in the headwaters<br />

of the stream.<br />

The shade provided by the<br />

plants will help decrease weed<br />

species in the stream and the<br />

habitat will be more suitable for<br />

kōura/freshwater crayfish, which<br />

have been spotted in the catchment.<br />

“There was a lot of work that<br />

went into the preparation of<br />

the site by our group members,<br />

landowners, the city council,<br />

Ravensdown and Environment<br />

Canterbury,” Cashmere Stream<br />

Care Group chairman Ken<br />

Rouse said.<br />

“It’s been a long journey but<br />

it’s great to see the outcome<br />

with well-established trees and<br />

the final round of plants in the<br />

ground.”<br />

The group applied for funding,<br />

weeded in-stream and bank<br />

areas, carried out monitoring<br />

and worked with landowners<br />

throughout the project.<br />

contributed to the deterioration<br />

of the clarity and quality of the<br />

water.<br />

Since 2016, more than $60,000<br />

of Immediate Steps biodiversity<br />

funding has been allocated to the<br />

project, as recommended by the<br />

Christchurch West Melton Water<br />

Zone Committee.<br />

The funding went towards<br />

plants, plant guards and fencing,<br />

and maintenance of the plants<br />

for three years following completion.<br />

More than $500,000 has been<br />

contributed through labour<br />

and resource from the city<br />

council.<br />

“The project shows what can<br />

be achieved when landowners,<br />

community, and councils work<br />

together towards a common<br />

goal,” zone committee chairman<br />

Kevin Brown said.<br />

“Protecting Cashmere Stream<br />

remains a priority for the health<br />

of the waterways throughout<br />

the catchment, including the<br />

Heathcote/Ōpāwaho River<br />

downstream.<br />

“Seeing a project like this run<br />

so well and so collaboratively has<br />

been really inspiring.”<br />

The city council has added<br />

curves to the stream and re-contoured<br />

the banks to make them<br />

favourable for native plants like<br />

kahikatea, kaikōmako, kowhai,<br />

and koromiko.<br />

They also undertook consenting,<br />

project management, earthworks,<br />

erosion and sediment<br />

control, and the major component<br />

of landscaping design and<br />

civil engineering.<br />

“We introduced some meanders<br />

into the stream, as it had<br />

been originally created into a<br />

straight, drain-like waterway,”<br />

said city council principal<br />

waterways ecologist Dr Belinda<br />

Margetts.<br />

“We also introduced some<br />

habitat in the forms of logs and<br />

planted the banks with native<br />

vegetation.<br />

“The long-term benefits of the<br />

works in this stream, and the<br />

waterways in the wider catchment,<br />

is really worth investing<br />

in, to increase biodiversity and<br />

improve water quality.”<br />

Barrier being<br />

considered to<br />

prevent entry<br />

• From page 1<br />

Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board chairwoman<br />

Alexandra Davids said work was<br />

currently being done behind<br />

the scenes at the city council to<br />

resolve some of the concerns of<br />

the community.<br />

“This is an issue that has been<br />

going on for a while. We already<br />

have got security guards going<br />

down the road and locking up<br />

different areas of concern,” she<br />

said.<br />

Davids also said the city<br />

council was planning to install<br />

a barrier which would prevent<br />

vehicle entry into the car park at<br />

night.<br />

However, Davids did not think<br />

temporary toilets would be a<br />

good idea for the area.<br />

“We know there is an<br />

issue there but we would not<br />

support putting in Portaloos<br />

because you get high winds in<br />

the area and you also get silly<br />

people that want to push them<br />

over which is not conducive to<br />

anything.<br />

“There are already toilets in<br />

the area at Barnett Park. We will<br />

make sure once the barrier is<br />

put in we will get some signage<br />

installed on it.”<br />

Music therapy course to<br />

improve well-being in children<br />

A PROGRAMME aimed at<br />

using music as a resource for<br />

wellbeing in primary schools<br />

has recently launched at a<br />

Woolston school.<br />

More than 130 pupils from<br />

Te Waka Unua Primary School<br />

participated in rhythm4wellbeing<br />

- a five-day introductory<br />

course to learn important life<br />

skills using instruments and the<br />

“power of rhythm.”<br />

The course is adapted from<br />

the Rhythm2recovery programme,<br />

who offer training<br />

in this space for counsellors,<br />

educators, youth workers, human<br />

resource professionals and<br />

more.<br />

Rhythm4wellbeing supports<br />

the New Zealand school curriculum<br />

by providing musical<br />

activities for social and emotional<br />

learning.<br />

Said registered music therapist<br />

Liz Bolwell, who led the<br />

course: “The students enjoyed<br />

connecting with other group<br />

members, exploring themes<br />

such as friendships and courage,<br />

and using their drums to learn<br />

more about themselves in a fun<br />

and motivating way.”<br />

Rhythmic music positively<br />

affected parts of the brain that<br />

Heartbeat rhythms played students have enjoyed participating<br />

in the programme which has<br />

were often associated with given them an opportunity to<br />

safety and improved emotional explore their well-being in a safe,<br />

stability.<br />

supportive and engaging way.<br />

Music therapy utilised<br />

“It was great to see the<br />

interpersonal and musical students so enthusiastic,<br />

relationships with individuals willing to try something<br />

and groups for personal growth, new, while at the same time<br />

healing and change.<br />

exploring and developing<br />

Said deputy principal James all of the school’s core skills<br />

Souter: “It has been fantastic of communication, problem<br />

having Liz run the introductory solving, courage, teamwork and<br />

sessions of rhythm4wellbeing self management.”<br />

Council’s outdoor<br />

pools set to open<br />

OUTDOOR POOLS will open<br />

on <strong>November</strong> 14, welcoming<br />

thousands of water lovers over<br />

the summer.<br />

All five of the city council’s<br />

summer facilities – Norman<br />

Kirk Memorial in Lyttelton,<br />

Templeton, Te Hāpua Halswell,<br />

Waltham and Jellie Park in Burnside<br />

– are primed for the seasonal<br />

rush, with plans for pool parties<br />

and fun activities.<br />

Young children will also be<br />

able to make a splash, with the<br />

city council’s paddling pools<br />

opening on the same day.<br />

City council head of recreation,<br />

sport and events Nigel Cox said<br />

many Kiwis have a “lifelong connection<br />

with their local pool.”<br />

“For many, there is a real thrill<br />

in taking their first dip of the season<br />

– even if there is a bit of early<br />

chill in the air,” he said.<br />

“However, nothing really beats<br />

an open-air pool on a hot day in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

“We encourage everyone to<br />

check the hours, look out for our<br />

popular party days and sign up for<br />

the membership systems in place<br />

for those who visit the Templeton<br />

and Norman Kirk Memorial<br />

pools.”<br />

Cox said that Templeton will<br />

operate on a membership basis<br />

– with an $80 season pass – and<br />

members can take their friends<br />

and family as long as they leave a<br />

payment in the honesty box.<br />

“It will be brilliant to have all<br />

the outdoor pools open for, hopefully,<br />

a long, warm summer,” Cox<br />

said.<br />

The pool party season gets<br />

under way at Jellie Park on <strong>November</strong><br />

28, from noon.<br />

The party season will officially<br />

wrap up with a “Dive-In Movie”<br />

day at Jellie Park on March 6.<br />

All outdoor pools will close on<br />

March 28.<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

Orana’s support organisation calls it a day<br />

THE ORGANISATION that<br />

was responsible for establishing<br />

Orana Wildlife Park is winding<br />

down after 50 years.<br />

The South Island Zoological<br />

Society was formed in 1970 with<br />

a vision to create a major wildlife<br />

park in the city.<br />

Its project captured the imagination<br />

of Cantabrians, and within<br />

weeks, the society had grown<br />

from eight founding members to<br />

more than 100 people.<br />

It took a further six years<br />

though of planning, fundraising<br />

and hard work before Orana<br />

Wildlife Park opened.<br />

“The society set out to develop<br />

an open range, drive-through,<br />

zoo,’’ SIZS vice-president David<br />

Laughlin said.<br />

“Starting with almost unusable<br />

land – a dry, stony riverbed<br />

– volunteers cleared the site,<br />

initially with just hand tools.<br />

It was back-breaking work. As<br />

fundraising results increased,<br />

second-hand equipment was<br />

purchased resulting in significant<br />

progress.<br />

“After 50 years of operation,<br />

the society has achieved its objectives<br />

and made the decision to<br />

wind down.”<br />

On September 10, 1976,<br />

Orana’s first animals arrived<br />

from Australia. The ‘Noah’s Ark’<br />

consisted of 18 lions (including<br />

six cubs), two tiger cubs, two<br />

donkeys, two camels, two water<br />

buffalo and two Shetland ponies.<br />

The dream of the SISZ became<br />

a reality at 10am on September<br />

25, 1976, when Orana Park, now<br />

Orana Wildlife Park, opened.<br />

“By 2pm, a queue of cars<br />

stretched 7km along McLeans<br />

Island. The last vehicles came<br />

through the park in the dark,”<br />

Left: The first car to enter the drivethrough<br />

lion reserve at Orana Park<br />

in September 1976. A queue of cars<br />

stretched 7km to enter the park. The<br />

drive-through operated until 1995.<br />

Below: Feed time for rhinoceroses.<br />

said McLaughlin.<br />

Orana’s main trump card was<br />

the drive-through lion reserve,<br />

the first and only one of its type<br />

in New Zealand. It operated<br />

until 1995.<br />

Today, Orana operates the<br />

unique Lion Encounter – the<br />

only one of its type in the <strong>Southern</strong><br />

Hemisphere.<br />

The experience is a “historical<br />

nod” to the drive-through days<br />

and the vision of SIZS.<br />

Once the park opened, Orana<br />

Wildlife Trust was formed to run<br />

and manage the zoo.<br />

SISZ took on the role as a supporting<br />

organisation and contributed<br />

to capital projects over<br />

the years with a mix of financial<br />

and volunteer labour support.<br />

SIZS also contributed to<br />

Orana’s newest exhibit, a New<br />

Zealand frog research facility for<br />

maud island/hamilton’s frog – a<br />

significant conservation project<br />

with the aim of reliably breeding<br />

them in captivity, something that<br />

has not been achieved globally.<br />
