Heritage church in Belfast

restored to former glory

AFTER SEVERAL years of

planning and fundraising, St

David’s Anglican Church has now

been restored to its former glory.

Refurbishment on the Belfast

church started in January this year

in a bid to preserve its rich history

for future generations to come.

The original structure was built

in 1855 as a memorial to the pioneer

settlers of Belfast before a new

building was replaced on the same

site in 1903.

Since then, it has been used for

more than a century which was

why it was in dire need of a refurbishment.

Said vicar Joanne Latham: “It’s

wonderful to have St David’s refurbished

and ready for the next 100

years. It’s a lovely place for regular

and special services, weddings, and

a place to farewell loved ones from.”

Designed by notable architect

Samuel Hurst Seager, the church

has a category 2 heritage listing

which is given to places of “historical

or cultural significance or

value.”

The Northwest Christchurch

Anglican Parish recognised the

need to retain the spiritual, historical

and architectural significance

of the church and to preserve it for

future generations.

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

Extensive

refurbishment

carried out

•From page 1

In 2014, a team was formed to

look at all aspects of the church. A

profile document was put together

along with a refurbishment plan

which included a detailed scope

of works.

The project was made possible

by a Heritage Incentive Grant

from the city council, a Lotteries

Environment and Heritage Committee

grant, along with fundraising

by the church.

Parishioner Anne McMaster,

who has managed the project, was

“thrilled” that the parish and the

community can now enjoy better

facilities.

The refurbishment work

included extensive carpentry repairs,

repainting the exterior, refurbishment

of the interior timber

work, remedial work to the bell

tower, replacement of damaged

windows, rewiring of the church,

new heaters, lighting, altar rails

and carpet.

As part of Heritage Week, St

David’s Anglican Church will be

open to the public this Sunday

from 10.30am to 4.30pm. A short

dedication service to thank all

those who contributed to the

refurbishment will be held at

Petition demands action over palm tree

• By Bea Gooding

A PETITION demanding the

city council take action over a

potentially hazardous palm tree

in Shirley has garnered more

than 105 signatures.

Residents Jo Dickson and

Maurice Grant submitted the

petition to the city council over

their inaction to fix the broken

planter box the tree sits in for the

last six years.

The box, at the Palm Drive and

Laguna Gardens intersection,

has cracks along the side of it.

Residents are concerned that

the tree could fall onto nearby

pedestrians and cars at any moment.

But city council city streets

maintenance manager Mark

Pinner said the stability of the

tree was currently of no concern

as it did not present any immediate

danger to road users.

Dickson was told by the city

council that funding had been

set aside to fix the box in 2015,

but she said no work has been

done since.

“It’s just frustrating. A lot

of people have said if we were

on the other side of town, it

probably would’ve been fixed

already,” she said.

“It’s been put in the too-hard

basket. The palm tree is in good

condition, and they [council] say

it was the roots that caused it.”

Last year the Papanui-Innes

Community Board requested

council staff to consider a range

of options, such its removal,

repair or replacement.

However, the city council

decided to defer the decision on

the tree’s future to the urban

development and transport committee

due to the costs involved.

Residents said they did not

want the tree removed, or for

it to be placed directly into the

ground instead, like others in the

area. But council staff said this

would compromise the structural

integrity of the tree.

Dickson feared the city council

would delay work for another six

to eight years, which was why

INACTION: Clearbrook

Palms residents Jo

Dickson and Maurice

Grant started a

petition in a bid to get

the city council to fix a

potentially dangerous

palm tree, which has

been delayed for six

years.

SLOAN ​

she started the petition in order

for them to take action within

the next few months.

Said Pinner: “As this feature is

unique to this location, council

were informed of the costs

which are between $20,000 and

$40,000.

“An arborist inspected the tree

and was judged to be in good

health. The planter box walls

are relatively low, and in a few

cases, rotated slightly due to root

growth.”

Dickson will be speaking more

about the issue at the Urban

Development and Transport

Committee’s meeting next

Wednesday.

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.

CELEBRATION:

Northcote School’s

new cycle track,

which is available

for the wider

community to

use, has now been

completed. ​

Cycle track good to go

SCHOOL CHILDREN and the

wider community in Redwood

can now enjoy the benefits of

having a new cycle track in the

area.

A new asphalt track for

cyclists has been built at Northcote

School which is available

for use by the public and pupils

alike.

The track was built as part

of the school’s Bikes in Schools

project to encourage more

children to use their bicycles

when travelling to and from

school.

The $90,000 project included

the cost of the track’s construction,

the purchase of more than

50 bicycles for pupils to use,

quality helmets, bike storage

and cycling classes.

Principal Justin Perriam saw

the track as a “great asset” for

the school and was thankful

that funding from the Papanui-

Innes Community Board, the

Rata Foundation, and through

fundraisers helped get the project

on the road.

He said the school had an

“open-door policy,” which was

why it was important to provide

another resource for the community

to use as many groups

accessed the school after hours

and in the weekends.

“With fewer and fewer children

owning bikes, we recognise

that it is important to provide

opportunities for students to

develop road sense skills, as well

as engage students in physical

activity,” he said.

“Students have said that they

enjoy having a track to walk

around when the grass is wet,

and they like being able to ride

their bike or scooter around the

track.”

The school was able to

fundraise more than $50,000

towards the project. They also

received $40,000 from the New

Zealand Transport Agency, and

$8000 from the community

board.

They were also gifted a number

of helmets from the Bike On

New Zealand Charitable Trust.

Plan to

boost civic

engagement

• By Bea Gooding

THE Papanui-Innes Community

Board is taking steps to tackle

a lack of civic education and

participation among the wider

community.

The community board plans to

allocate $2000 towards transport

costs for school children attending

the Ōtautahi, Our City -Tō tātou

taone programme at the city council’s

Civic Offices on Hereford St.

The programme enables students

from years 7 to 13 to meet with

staff and gain an understanding of

what the city council does, its processes,

and why their voices count.

One of the community board’s

objectives in their 2020-2022 plan

was to encourage civic participation

to ensure all residents’ voices

were included when making decisions.

Said community board

chairwoman Emma Norrish:

“There is a lack of knowledge on

how people can get involved; it’s

something us as elected members

are well aware of.

“It’s important that people learn

how they can make a difference.

This programme will also

hopefully expand knowledge about

careers available through local

government.”

Camping with a charitable purpose

• By Bea Gooding

FAMILIES WANTING to try

camping for the first time can

now do so while giving back to

the community.

Groups can learn how to

pitch a tent or see whether they

have everything needed for the

upcoming camping season for

summer at North South Holiday

Park, Harewood.

The park will be donating $5

per adult who

stay overnight

to the

Christchurch

City Mission.

All proceeds

from groups

only pitching

a tent for the

day will also

be donated to

the charity. Dan Fraser

They will

also match any canned food

donated for the mission.

Owner Dan Fraser said camping

with kids can sometimes be

challenging, so by practising and

giving it a go, it ensured the next

big trip was stress-free.

“Camping isn’t for everyone,

so this gives them a budgetfriendly

option to try camping

before going on a big, two-weeklong

trip,” he said.

GIVING BACK: North South Holiday Park is offering a charitable camping experience

for those wanting to try the activity out for the first time.

“It’s not just people travelling

from outside of Christchurch, it’s

actually locals who want to get

away for the weekend too.

“It’s also a good incentive to

encourage people to come out

and give back.”

Staff on-site will also be on

hand to give their expert camping

tips to those unsure about

where to start, including campervan

advice.

The Pitch Perfect initiative

started last year and now comes

at a time when New Zealanders

have been exploring their backyards

following Covid-19 travel

restrictions.

Because of this, he expected

a busy season during the upcoming

summer but had some

concerns about a lack of international

visitors in the foreseeable

future.

“I’m feeling highly optimistic

that it’ll be a busy summer, but

the test will be about February or

March next year when we usually

have international visitors.”

Fraser started the initiative not

only to encourage people

to try something new, but

because he has always had an

interest in supporting the local

community.

Last year, the park raised more

than $500 which was donated to

non-profit organisation Sands

NZ, which support parents and

families who have experienced

the death of a baby.

Now more than ever he encouraged

others to get amongst

an “old Kiwi pastime.”

The City Mission was chosen

this year due to the hardships

Cantabrians have faced in the

wake of Covid-19.

The charity became overwhelmed

due to a higher demand

for food assistance caused

by the pandemic.

Said Fraser: “We see what’s

happening around the world

with the pandemic, lots of people

are out there struggling, whether

they’ve lost their jobs or homes.

“We felt like we can do our

part and make a difference, even

if it’s small.”

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.

“It will be brilliant to

have all the outdoor pools

Performing arts with a spotlight on mental health

• By Bea Gooding

A PAPANUI dance studio is

banding together with dance

studios and performing arts

centres across the city in a bid to

break stigmas on mental health.

The 03’ Collective, by Zion

Dance Studios, Papanui, is a

mental health performing arts

showcase in collaboration with

Swarm Studios, The Compound

Studio, Levings School of Dance,

Anna-Lee School of Dance, Canterbury

Ballet, Common Ground

and Nathan Phillips Vocals.

Taking place next month in

The Aurora Centre at Burnside

High School, more than 150

performers will take centre stage

for hip-hop, contemporary, break

dancing, vocals and spoken

word.

Zion Studios dance and youth

development co-ordinator

Bronté Te Mete said the

showcase was an opportunity

for artists to use their talents

to address “a big issue in our

society.”

“With so many things being

cancelled, postponed and shutdown,

I decided to flip the script

and take it as an opportunity to

dive into something new,” she

said.

“Twenty twenty has been a

year of uncertainty, a year of

fear, change, self-discovery and

BREAKING STIGMA: Performers at Zion Dance Studios are teaming up with performing

arts and dance studios across the city to shine a light on mental health. ​

growth. What a perfect opportunity

to come together and showcase

our thoughts, challenges,

and achievements.”

Te Mete said it also offered an

opportunity for the dance and

performing arts community to

give back.

All profits from the show

will be donated to Youthline in

Christchurch, and to another

mental health organisation once

it was decided on.

The 03’ Collective was an idea

brought to life during a year that

“turned the world upside down.”

Te Mete said the theme was

inspired by this year’s events,

where there has been a push to

look out for your mental wellbeing

– something that could be

communicated through the art

forms.

“Performing art is something

creative and positive that we

can use to express ourselves. So

much can be portrayed through

movement, words and lyrics,”

she said.

“We aim to share our own

personal experiences to inspire

others to do the same, to show

people that they’re not alone and

to create a space where vulnerability

is welcomed.”

Putting a spotlight on the issue

was important for members at

the studio as mental health issues

were too often “ignored” or

“silenced.”

Said Te Mete: “We want to

break the stigma that being

vulnerable means being weak,

because it’s not. We need to

reinforce and normalise that

seeking help and admitting

you’re not okay is a sign of

strength.”

I’ve promised that I will work hard for you as your representative in

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

stretched 7km to enter the park. The

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.
