‘Antisocial

behaviour’

upsets

Moncks Bay

residents

• By Louis Day

YOUTHS PARTYING into

the early hours of the morning,

littering and even defecating

near a car park in Moncks Bay

is causing tension within the

community.

In a letter to the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board, the Redcliffs Residents

Association said it had received a

number of complaints from residents

living on Main Rd and Cliff

St about some of the “antisocial

behaviour” at the car park which

sits next to the Christchurch

Yacht Club.

The association has said cases

of loud music and noise keeping

residents awake throughout the

night has got noticeably worse

over the past year. It has also received

reports of part of the beach

surrounding the car park being

littered on and even used as a

toilet. Youths have also been seen

entering Cliff St to use the red

zone for toileting purposes.

The association wants the city

council to consider installing a

chain to prevent cars using the car

park at night.

It also wants a temporary

Portaloo to be installed at the car

park. • Turn to page 5

Toy dogs comfort children in hospital

FOR HENNY van Veen,

knitting toy dogs is a labour of

love that has been bringing joy

and calm to children having

ultrasounds at Christchurch

Hospital.

Knitted by the radiographic

assistant, the toys are given

to some of the hospital’s child

patients, aged between four and

10, to help them overcome their

fears.

For some children, an ultrasound

is a traumatic experience

and receiving a cuddly toy at the

end of it makes it a bit better, van

Veen said.

“We only get happy faces

if we give them a dog or one

of the little knitted teddies

from chaplaincy service,” she

said.

Van Veen was inspired to start

knitting about 18 months ago

after seeing the small teddies

around the hospital.

“I have never done it before

in my life and learned how by

watching YouTube.”

She usually knits in the evening

while listening to music or

watching television, “just to keep

my hands busy.”

It takes her four weeks to finish

a dog, as she only knits for

about an hour a day.

“And a lot of dogs are not to

HIKING BOOTS

& SHOES

my liking once finished so I

make another one.”

The patterns come from

library books or the internet,

and van Veen has made “just

about every breed of dog you can

name.”

Breeds she has knitted

include corgi, poodle, german

shepherd, jack russell, miniature

schnauzer, pug and border collie.

PEDESTRIAN SAFETY

A resident has raised concerns

about pedestrian safety along and

near Worsleys Rd at a Spreydon-

meeting. They spoke about a lack

of pedestrian links between and

within Westmorland East Valley

Reserve, Cashmere Esplanade

Reserve and the new stormwater

basin in the Cashmere Estate

subdivision, which have become

popular recreation destinations.

The community board has

requested city council staff advice

on the network of footpaths

within popular recreation

destinations, and on options to

improve pedestrian connectivity,

safety and accessibility, including

reducing the speed limit on

Worsleys Rd.

Caring for elderly recognised again

• By Bea Gooding

ROCHELLE Moore’s passion

and dedication for supporting

the elderly has been recognised

for the second year in a row.

The Cashmere resident has

been named village manager

of the year at the recent Bupa

Awards for going the extra mile

for her residents at Bupa Cashmere

View Retirement Village.

The village also won care home

of the year out of the company’s

48 care homes across the country.

The awards recognised homes

and individuals each year who

excelled across all aspects of

their roles and were measured

against criteria such as resident

satisfaction, safety, community

connections and more.

Moore was also last year’s village

manager of the year and said

she was overwhelmed to have

been nominated a second time.

“I was actually overwhelmed,

you don’t see things like this

coming,” she said.

“For me, it feels like the perfect

position; I believe I have the best

job in the world. Even on the

not-so-good days, I can’t imagine

being anywhere else.”

Moore’s role included overseeing

the day-to-day operations at

the village, facilitating residents’

health care needs, organising

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

for her efforts at Bupa Cashmere View Care Home and Retirement Village. ​

events and activities, and managing

any refurbishments.

She cherished her tight-knit

relationship with each of her

residents and being able to care

for all 106 of them as they moved

into the next stage of their lives.

The camaraderie between

residents and staff she witnessed

during the height of the Covid-19

pandemic in the country was one

of the many rewarding aspects of

her job.

But the role came with its challenges.

“For me, it’s doing the best I

can every day. We’re a family,”

she said.

“When we pressed pause on

our lives as we navigated our way

through the pandemic, fighting

a battle we knew nothing about,

it was such a pleasure to witness

the kind-heartedness between

[the residents].

“But lately I have struggled

as several residents have moved

into further care and have left

the village. They need that next

level of care, but it’s still a loss to

the village.”

Moore moved to Christchurch

to be closer to her parents 10

years ago after living in Sydney

as a nurse for 27 years.

She joined Bupa in 2011 to

continue her nursing work

before moving into her current

role at the retirement village six

years ago.

Her sister, Lynda Mackay, is

also the village manager at Bupa

Parklands on Papanui Retirement

Village, and she believed

their close relationship with their

grandparents was the inspiration

behind working in aged care.

“I followed her [Mackay] into

nursing. For us, having that close

relationship with our grandparents

was the inspiration behind

working in aged care,” she said.

“Being able to bring my nursing

experience into the village

manager role has also been

invaluable.”

We have dealt with Cameron Bailey for years because he has an

excellent understanding of

the housing market

and his knowledge and expertise is second to none.

Stream restoration complete

A PROJECT to restore and

enhance Cashmere Stream has

now been completed after more

than four years.

Armed with spades, local

landowners and the community

helped the Cashmere Stream

Care Group plant more than

2500 native plants in the headwaters

of the stream.

The shade provided by the

plants will help decrease weed

species in the stream and the

habitat will be more suitable for

kōura/freshwater crayfish, which

have been spotted in the catchment.

“There was a lot of work that

went into the preparation of

the site by our group members,

landowners, the city council,

Ravensdown and Environment

Canterbury,” Cashmere Stream

Care Group chairman Ken

Rouse said.

“It’s been a long journey but

it’s great to see the outcome

with well-established trees and

the final round of plants in the

ground.”

The group applied for funding,

weeded in-stream and bank

areas, carried out monitoring

and worked with landowners

throughout the project.

contributed to the deterioration

of the clarity and quality of the

water.

Since 2016, more than $60,000

of Immediate Steps biodiversity

funding has been allocated to the

project, as recommended by the

Christchurch West Melton Water

Zone Committee.

The funding went towards

plants, plant guards and fencing,

and maintenance of the plants

for three years following completion.

More than $500,000 has been

contributed through labour

and resource from the city

council.

“The project shows what can

be achieved when landowners,

community, and councils work

together towards a common

goal,” zone committee chairman

Kevin Brown said.

“Protecting Cashmere Stream

remains a priority for the health

of the waterways throughout

the catchment, including the

Heathcote/Ōpāwaho River

downstream.

“Seeing a project like this run

so well and so collaboratively has

been really inspiring.”

The city council has added

curves to the stream and re-contoured

the banks to make them

favourable for native plants like

kahikatea, kaikōmako, kowhai,

and koromiko.

They also undertook consenting,

project management, earthworks,

erosion and sediment

control, and the major component

of landscaping design and

civil engineering.

“We introduced some meanders

into the stream, as it had

been originally created into a

straight, drain-like waterway,”

said city council principal

waterways ecologist Dr Belinda

Margetts.

“We also introduced some

habitat in the forms of logs and

planted the banks with native

vegetation.

“The long-term benefits of the

works in this stream, and the

waterways in the wider catchment,

is really worth investing

in, to increase biodiversity and

improve water quality.”

Barrier being

considered to

prevent entry

• From page 1

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board chairwoman

Alexandra Davids said work was

currently being done behind

the scenes at the city council to

resolve some of the concerns of

the community.

“This is an issue that has been

going on for a while. We already

have got security guards going

down the road and locking up

different areas of concern,” she

said.

Davids also said the city

council was planning to install

a barrier which would prevent

vehicle entry into the car park at

night.

However, Davids did not think

temporary toilets would be a

good idea for the area.

“We know there is an

issue there but we would not

support putting in Portaloos

because you get high winds in

the area and you also get silly

people that want to push them

over which is not conducive to

anything.

“There are already toilets in

the area at Barnett Park. We will

make sure once the barrier is

put in we will get some signage

installed on it.”

experience, we personalise home and

business loans for Cantabrians.”

Music therapy course to

improve well-being in children

A PROGRAMME aimed at

using music as a resource for

wellbeing in primary schools

has recently launched at a

Woolston school.

More than 130 pupils from

Te Waka Unua Primary School

participated in rhythm4wellbeing

- a five-day introductory

course to learn important life

skills using instruments and the

“power of rhythm.”

The course is adapted from

the Rhythm2recovery programme,

who offer training

in this space for counsellors,

educators, youth workers, human

resource professionals and

more.

Rhythm4wellbeing supports

the New Zealand school curriculum

by providing musical

activities for social and emotional

learning.

Said registered music therapist

Liz Bolwell, who led the

course: “The students enjoyed

connecting with other group

members, exploring themes

such as friendships and courage,

and using their drums to learn

more about themselves in a fun

and motivating way.”

Rhythmic music positively

Council’s outdoor

pools set to open

OUTDOOR POOLS will open

on November 14, welcoming

thousands of water lovers over

the summer.

All five of the city council’s

summer facilities – Norman

Kirk Memorial in Lyttelton,

Templeton, Te Hāpua Halswell,

Waltham and Jellie Park in Burnside

– are primed for the seasonal

rush, with plans for pool parties

and fun activities.

Young children will also be

able to make a splash, with the

city council’s paddling pools

opening on the same day.

City council head of recreation,

sport and events Nigel Cox said

many Kiwis have a “lifelong connection

with their local pool.”

“For many, there is a real thrill

in taking their first dip of the season

– even if there is a bit of early

chill in the air,” he said.

“However, nothing really beats

an open-air pool on a hot day in

Christchurch.

“We encourage everyone to

check the hours, look out for our

popular party days and sign up for

the membership systems in place

for those who visit the Templeton

and Norman Kirk Memorial

pools.”

Cox said that Templeton will

operate on a membership basis

– with an $80 season pass – and

members can take their friends

and family as long as they leave a

payment in the honesty box.

“It will be brilliant to have all

the outdoor pools open for, hopefully,

a long, warm summer,” Cox

said.

The pool party season gets

under way at Jellie Park on November

28, from noon.

The party season will officially

wrap up with a “Dive-In Movie”

day at Jellie Park on March 6.

All outdoor pools will close on

March 28.

•Any individuals or groups

interested in helping with

the day-to-day running of

the pool, for things such

as water testing and light

cleaning, should email

Orana’s support organisation calls it a day

THE ORGANISATION that

was responsible for establishing

Orana Wildlife Park is winding

down after 50 years.

The South Island Zoological

Society was formed in 1970 with

a vision to create a major wildlife

park in the city.

Its project captured the imagination

of Cantabrians, and within

weeks, the society had grown

from eight founding members to

more than 100 people.

It took a further six years

though of planning, fundraising

and hard work before Orana

Wildlife Park opened.

“The society set out to develop

an open range, drive-through,

zoo,’’ SIZS vice-president David

Laughlin said.

“Starting with almost unusable

land – a dry, stony riverbed

– volunteers cleared the site,

initially with just hand tools.

It was back-breaking work. As

fundraising results increased,

second-hand equipment was

purchased resulting in significant

progress.

“After 50 years of operation,

the society has achieved its objectives

and made the decision to

wind down.”

On September 10, 1976,

Orana’s first animals arrived

from Australia. The ‘Noah’s Ark’

consisted of 18 lions (including

six cubs), two tiger cubs, two

donkeys, two camels, two water

buffalo and two Shetland ponies.

The dream of the SISZ became

a reality at 10am on September

25, 1976, when Orana Park, now

Orana Wildlife Park, opened.

“By 2pm, a queue of cars

stretched 7km along McLeans

Island. The last vehicles came

through the park in the dark,”

Left: The first car to enter the drivethrough

lion reserve at Orana Park

in September 1976. A queue of cars

drive-through operated until 1995.

Below: Feed time for rhinoceroses.

said McLaughlin.

Orana’s main trump card was

the drive-through lion reserve,

the first and only one of its type

in New Zealand. It operated

until 1995.

Today, Orana operates the

unique Lion Encounter – the

only one of its type in the Southern

Hemisphere.

The experience is a “historical

nod” to the drive-through days

and the vision of SIZS.

Once the park opened, Orana

Wildlife Trust was formed to run

and manage the zoo.

SISZ took on the role as a supporting

organisation and contributed

to capital projects over

the years with a mix of financial

and volunteer labour support.

SIZS also contributed to

Orana’s newest exhibit, a New

Zealand frog research facility for

maud island/hamilton’s frog – a

significant conservation project

with the aim of reliably breeding

them in captivity, something that

has not been achieved globally.
