FOUR WOMEN have been

wandering the streets of

Fendalton for about 20 years,

building friendships and

learning about their local

neighbourhoods as members of

a weekly Walk’n’Talk group.

Long-term walker – and

volunteer – Vivien Price said

the meet-ups offer an ideal opportunity

to mix exercise, social

connections and community

knowledge.

Along with Pat Williams, 94,

Dorothy Morris, and Philippa

Goile, the active foursome have

found friendship and fun along

the way since first setting out in

2000.

in the very first outing, remains

a committed regular.

“We all enjoy up to 45-minute

rambles, usually from February

to early December,” Mrs Price

said.

“Up to 40 people – aged from

their 50s to 90s – often join the

Fendalton walks. However, our

numbers drop in winter.”

For Mrs Price, who is

originally from England, the

Walk’n’Talk group is a “wonderful

way to meet new people

and form friendships”.

“It is always very friendly and

inclusive, and we often enjoy a

coffee together,” she said.

ANOTHER BOTTLE store

The company behind the

withdrew its application to the

District Licencing Committee

last week.

The planned

site near the Main

North Rd and

Papanui Rd intersection,

already

has two other

Residents were

outraged that it if

the Bottle O application went

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Emma Norrish

did not know why it was

withdrawn and did not want to

speculate on whether community

outcry was behind the decision.

She was happy the application

had been withdrawn.

“We didn’t get a reason, but

there may have been other things

going on for them behind the

scenes,” she said. • Turn to page 8

Residents lose fight to stop

development of boarding house

PLANS TO turn an existing rest

quiet suburban street in Papanui

have been given the green light

in spite of community protest.

Erica St residents have tried to

the prospective boarding house,

Residents were concerned that

there was no guarantee that the

WESTFIELD LOCAL HEROES AWARDS

Three Christchurch people have been named as Westfield Local Heroes.

Bea Gooding and Matt Slaughter catch up with them

Resilience needed in stressful role

WHEN THE February 22,

2011, earthquake destroyed Jan

Nottingham’s home, landing

a job at the Ronald McDonald

House South Island was just the

lifeline she needed.

With nowhere to go, she leapt

at the opportunity to become a

live-in night supervisor, ensuring

families felt welcome at the

house while undergoing treatment

at Christchurch Hospital.

Knowing a thing or two about

resilience herself, Nottingham

believes she was made for the

role and has since been a guaranteed

source of comfort to hundreds

of parents and children for

more than eight years.

Whether it was a shoulder to

cry on, making sure families had

meals to come home to or just

being there for a cuddle, Nottingham

does not view the role

of “house mum” as a job.

So when she was one of the

three winners of the Westfield

Local Heroes awards as voted

by the community, it came as a

surprise.

“I thought, ‘has this really happened

to me?’ It was absolutely

humbling and overwhelming to

have been nominated and to win

that award,” she said.

The awards recognise individuals

who go above and beyond

for their local communities.

She was awarded a $10,000

grant as a result, which will be

used to refurbish the education

room at the house.

“Through Covid-19, we found

that a lot more people are working

from home. so we needed to

update our education room and

to make it more modern,” said

Nottingham.

“Depending on how long their

sick child is here for, mum and

dad can set their computers up

and work from home while they

are here.”

When others are winding

down for the night, Nottingham’s

day is just getting started.

Starting the day at 4.45pm,

she spends the next 12 hours

introducing new families to the

home, ensuring operations run

smoothly overnight, and being

on-call for any emergencies –

medical or otherwise.

Many families were under

immense stress, whether it

was children receiving cancer

treatment, children with serious

injuries, or expectant mothers

going through a complicated

pregnancy.

Times like these were what

made the job challenging, but

what gave Nottingham strength

was pouring her heart and soul

into the role.

Said Nottingham: “You do feel

for what the families are going

through under those circumstances

as you’re on that journey

with them. You’re somebody

that has to have empathy, understanding

and maturity.

“If you love what you’re doing,

that’s what makes you strong.

“But it’s always rewarding to

see a family go home. That’s the

nicest thing, it means the child is

well enough to go home.”

Nottingham grew up in

Invercargill and moved to

Christchurch when she was

21-years-old.

She worked for Air New Zealand

as a sales executive before

working at a travel agency.

When she has a chance,

Nottingham loves exploring the

outdoors and plans to tick off all

of the great walks of NZ, with

Fiordland’s Routeburn Track

next on the agenda.

Although it was a sharp twist

of fate that led her to the Ronald

McDonald House South Island,

she would not have it any other

way.

“With the earthquake I was

left without accommodation, so

in the interview I could see that I

was the right person for the role,

just knowing that I was compassionate

and had empathy,” she

said.

“I’ve enjoyed being a mother

to all the people coming through

the house.”

Excellence in service and delivery of results

throughout the process.

Cameron was fully involved right through the campaign and has

a fantastic support crew behind him. We couldn’t fault any part

of our campaign and will happily refer Cameron Bailey to all our

friends and family!

Blue Light to benefit from cop’s determination

A FEW memories stand out for

Senior Constable Bruce Ward in

his 11 years as a police youth aid

officer.

In the 18 months Avonhead’s

Ward has worked at Rolleston

Police Station, he estimates he

has supported about 300 youths

from the district.

Ward has also been a volunteer

with Blue Light for 17 years,

an organisation separate from

police, which organises events

for young people who have been

abused or affected by family

violence.

His determination to go above

and beyond for hundreds of

young people has paid off – Ward

was named one of three winners

in the Westfield Local Heroes

awards and received $10,000 to be

donated to Blue Light.

Ward said the money will

be used towards the cost of

arranging additional camps,

including one for Muslim girls

traumatised by the March 15

mosque attacks.

Recently, he attended a camp in

Auckland with youths who had

been directly impacted by the

terror attacks.

One boy who was injured

and whose father and brother

were killed, told Ward when

his family lived in Syria they

believed police killed innocent

people. When Ward asked if his

perception of this had changed,

he said he now trusted police.

A few years ago, through

his police role, he helped to

set up and coach the first XV

rugby team at Cashmere High

School.

Last November, a new officer

in uniform introduced himself to

Ward. He was one of the boys he

coached and said Ward inspired

him to join the police.

Said Ward: “My goal was

always to be involved with youth

and make a difference in young

people’s lives.

“To spend a little bit of time

and money on young people at

that age, then it prevents them

going into the justice system later

on and we all know that it’s close

to $90,000 a year to have one

prisoner imprisoned.

“If the police can break

down those barriers and look

at the whole restorative justice

approach to youth so that they

get that chance . . . the whole

country’s on a winner,” he said.

Ward said being recognised

as a local hero is a great feeling

but he sees it as an award for the

many police and volunteers who

dedicate their time to Blue Light

and supporting youth.

“There’s no way I could have

ever done this without the team

at Blue Light as supporters.”

He estimates he has worked

with about 60 police officers and

many more volunteers during his

time with Blue Light.

“I’ve been awarded and that’s

great, but do you know what, it’s

an award for Blue Light and the

community organisation.”

His daughters Sarah and

Charlotte and wife Pam are

proud of the recognition.

“They’re over the moon and

they’ve grown up with police,

my children really, and they’ve

attended the odd Blue Light

thing themselves over the years

so I think that they’re as proud

as I am.”

This year, Westfield Riccarton

had the most number of people

vote in the local hero awards

than any other Westfield mall in

Australia and New Zealand.

WESTFIELD LOCAL HEROES AWARDS

Trying to end the cycle

of family violence

STIGMA: My Fathers Barber

founder Matt Brown has been

recognised at the Westfield

Local Heroes awards for his bid

to end the cycle of abuse and

family violence. ​

HAIR ISN’T the only thing Matt

Brown cuts.

The My Fathers Barbers

founder has made it his mission

over the last decade to help cut

toxic masculinity out of the lives

of men who sit in his chairs.

Over time the shop has offered

a safe haven for men to heal,

connect and open up about the

issues affecting them instead of

bottling it up inside.

Brown discovered the role

barbershops played in helping

men share their pain and started

the She Is Not Your Rehab movement,

which encourages them

to acknowledge experiences

of childhood abuse instead of

taking it out on their wives and

girlfriends.

He has now been named as a

winner of the Westfield Local

Heroes awards due to his commitment

to ending the cycle of

domestic and family violence.

The awards recognised role

models across the country and

the positive impact their work

had within their communities.

As a survivor of family

violence and child sexual abuse

himself, he understood the importance

of having someone to

confide in.

Said Brown: “The movement

is simply an invitation for men

to acknowledge their own

childhood trauma, and to take

responsibility for their healing

instead of transmitting it on

those around them.”

As voted by the community,

Brown was awarded a $10,000

grant, which he said would be

used to run more local group

therapy sessions for men.

The idea for She Is Not Your

Rehab started in a garden shed

and has gone on to receive international

recognition.

News of his talent for delivering

fresh cuts quickly grew over

social media, along with the

number of men who were visiting

barbers for more than just a

haircut.

Wanting to raise awareness

even further, Brown became an

ambassador for the Ministry

of Social Development’s ‘It’s

not OK’ campaign in 2018 – an

initiative which aims to change

how New Zealanders think and

act towards family violence.

In collaboration with family

violence centre Aviva Families,

he also hosts a men’s antiviolence

support group

from his barbershop.

Since then he has delivered

a TEDx talk in 2019, where he

and his wife, Sarah, launched

the concept of the movement

and has facilitated a barber programme

at youth justice facility

Te Puna Wai O Tuhinapo at

Christchurch Men’s Prison.

The number of men

seeking help has increased

since the movement

took off on social

media.

“Our communities

are crying out

for help, support

and tools to

see these

cycles of

abuse and

trauma

come to an

end,” said

Brown.

As a barber

he has had a

list of impressive

clients including All

Blacks to American

hip-hop icons, Wu-

Tang Clan.

This year he

continues to work

alongside the

Department of Corrections as a

patron.



IMPROVE YOUR MENTAL

AND PHYSICAL HEALTH

The scheduled opening of our

long-awaited Northern Corridor

roading project next month

finalises a long journey for our

residents to unlock our roading

corridors to ease congestion.

When I turned the sod for this

project in 2016, as one of

National’s roads of national

significance, we knew it was one

of the biggest projects of its kind

on South Island. Belfast residents

were telling me they were

concerned about the number of

vehicles travelling past the

skatepark and schools, because

we know children don’t always

cross at the lights, and Northwood

residents felt they were taking

their lives in their hands trying to

turn right onto Main North Road.

The Northern Corridor will move


traffic off our local


roads and away

from homes and schools. It is a

game-changer for our residents.


I’m busy supporting our Spring

Grove residents who are wanting

safe access across the train

tracks to get to medical

appointments and shops in

Northwood and Belfast. I’m

bringing KiwiRail and the

Christchurch City Council to meet

with a group of residents to

explore solutions. Residents feel

that with more new families

moving into the area, the problem

needs to be addressed as soon

as possible.

“…we know children don’t always

cross at the lights…”

I am at my community

constituent clinic at the Papanui

RSA on the first Monday of every

month assisting with a range of

issues. Please do get in touch.


Falun Gong, also known as Falun

Dafa, is a spiritual practice that

millions around the world have

made a part of their lives.

Rooted in Buddhist tradition, it

consists of two main components:

self-improvement through the

study of teachings, and gentle

exercises and meditation.

The belief system of Falun Gong

offers the possibility of spiritual

growth through disciplined

practice. Its teachings encourage

learners to let go of unhealthy

attachments as they strive to

attune their lives to the underlying

qualities of the universe: Truth,

Compassion, and Forbearance.

People who practice Falun

Gong often find it to be life

changing. Many experience

dramatic health benefits as well

as newfound energy, mental

clarity, and stress relief. More

importantly, many feel that in

Falun Gong they have found a

deeply rewarding spiritual path.

Falun Gong was originally

taught in China by Mr. Li

Hongzhi, the practice’s teacher (or

“master,” in keeping with Asian

tradition).

It is now practiced in over 80

countries, and Mr. Li’s teachings

have been translated into over 40

languages.

Blair’s sharp skills recognised again

MANY HOURS of practice for

young butcher Blair Wright has

paid off for a second time.

Wright, of Peter Timbs Meats,

in St Albins, won the apprentice

category at the Retail Meats

New Zealand national butchery

competition in Auckland and

was the youngest competitor

having just turned 19.

Last month, he won the Asian

New Zealand Meat Company

butcher apprentice of the year

competition, upper South

Island, on his way to the final in

Auckland.

Practice makes perfect

for Wright, who said it is a

challenging and rewarding

career path that he highly

recommends.

Fear Papanui would

become liquor village

• From page 1

“I’m relieved as I know there

were many people in the community

against the application.

There’s no need for another

liquor store in Papanui.”

This comes after momentum

was building to stop the

developments from going ahead

following fears that Papanui

would turn into a “liquor

village.”

If consent was granted, the

store would have been just

• By Bea Gooding

RESIDENTS wanting certainty

regarding the future layout of

Cranford St will need to wait

even longer for a final decision.

The city council was meant

to decide last week on whether

it would support the current

layout, or install a bus lane, a

clearway, or a high-occupancy

vehicle lane.

But the city council delayed

the decision to seek further legal

advice due to the matter involving

many groups, such as the

New Zealand Transport Agency,

Environment Canterbury,

and the Waimakariri District

Council.

It will now be considered at

an extraordinary meeting on

November 26 in a bid to mitigate

a predicted traffic increase on

Cranford St due to the Christchurch

Northern Motorway.

Last month, the Papanui-

Innes Community Board

recommended to the city

council that it endorses the

current design which included

road widening and intersection

improvements for pedestrians,

cyclists and all road users.

Board chairwoman Emma

Norrish said this was preferred

because it offered flexibility to

quickly make changes to the

road later on if it does not manage

traffic sufficiently, instead

50m away from Super Liquor

Papanui, and 180m away from

Thirsty Liquor Papanui, as well

as the nearby supermarkets at

Northlands Shopping Centre.

Residents were concerned

about the potential harm that

can be caused by having too

many outlets in close proximity.

Not only this, it was directly

opposite a bus stop extensively

used by school children,

particularly Papanui High

School.

Cranford St layout

decision delayed

of installing an extra lane in

anticipation of increases first.

However, groups who spoke at

the meeting last week disagreed

with the approach to “do nothing,”

and wanted clearways

ruled out as it facilitated more

cars in the area.

Just like the community, the

WDC, and ECan all endorsed a

bus priority lane due to the work

being done on revitalising the

city’s bus services, and encouraging

more people to get out of

their cars.

Said St Albans resident Mark

Wilson: “As a person who has

actively lobbied and presented

alternative northern arterial

plans to all of these organisations,

it is great to see them now

effectively endorse key aspects

of the plan, and put our community

first.”

But NZTA project manager

Michael Blyleven warned at

the meeting that if the city

council were to leave the design

as it was, or did not install a

clearway, it would not effectively

reduce congestion in residential

areas.

“This is not about providing

unabated capacity for singleoccupancy

vehicles, it’s about

allowing the traffic that is there

to flow appropriately. Then after

that, we can prioritise the different

modes appropriately,” he

said.

Heaton Normal, Casebrook and Breens pupils were among 500 competitors

from 15 area and intermediate schools around Canterbury who competed in

CAIMS Athletics held at Nga Puna Wai on Tuesday. The all-day event included

track and field events including long jump, high jump, shot put and discus.

Heaton Normal’s Michael Rankin showed good technique and determination to win the

boys high jump on count-back from Casebrook Intermediate’s Ari Keshariya (above right).

Both jumpers cleared 1.36m but Michael had more clear jumps in his earlier attempts.

Rory Holmes (right) also of Casebrook was third.

great success. Pupils managed to make up to $150 for the City Mission.

Building of multi-use community

centre to go out for tender soon

THE JOB of building Hornby’s

new multi-use community

facility is about to go out to the

market.

The city council has approved

the project’s procurement plan,

which means the construction

can now go out to tender.

“This decision means the

project is now locked into our

schedule, and that everything

is now full steam ahead for

construction to start in early

2021. Our aim is to have the

facility open towards the end of

2022,” said Mayor Lianne Dalziel.

“This is very welcome news for

the community, who have been

campaigning for years to have

a facility like this to fill the very

real gap in library and recreation

services in their corner of town.

“This new community facility

is going to be a good investment

in Hornby’s future and will provide

work for our local construction

sector.”

The city council is investing

$35.7 million into the multi-use

centre to meet the needs of the

growing population living in the

southwest suburbs. Last month, the

centre’s designs were approved.

STEP CLOSER: Following concept design approvals last month, the job of building the Hornby Centre is about to go out

to the market.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

The facility will be built on the

east side of Kyle Park. An early

works package will be tendered

first, to get the site prepared

starting in early 2021. The

main construction work will be

tendered separately, and will get

under way in mid-2021.

There is also an espresso bar, a
