facility

rebuilt in

Shirley

• By Bea Gooding

RESIDENTS ARE calling for the

revival of Shirley Community

Centre after the area has been

left without a facility for nearly a

decade.

This comes after the Papanui-

Innes Community Board sought

ideas for the future use of the

former community centre site at

10 Shirley Rd.

Due to the city council’s financial

restraints, it was unlikely that

funding would be available in the

short-term for permanent options.

However, the community board

was still keen to see the space utilised

in the meantime, while they

advocated for funding through

the 2021-2031 Long Term Plan

process.

In September, a questionnaire

was delivered to about 800 properties

within the site’s vicinity,

which asked residents whether

they currently used the site, how

they would like to use it, and how

the city council can make the

most of what was already there.

Leash dogs on beach

DOG OWNERS are being

reminded that beaches are

off-limits to unleashed dogs on

summer days.

“We know many people enjoy

playing with their dogs at the

beach and they can still do that,

but they need to steer clear of the

main swimming areas or go early

in the morning or in the evening,’’

city council animal services

manager Mark Vincent said.

“Between 9am and 7pm unleashed

dogs are banned from

specified areas of our swimming

beaches because people who

have come to the beach to have

a splash in the sea or to make

sandcastles with their kids don’t

want lots of dog running around.

“Although dogs are prohibited

at these beaches between 9am

and 7pm, dog owners can walk

their dogs through these beaches

as long as they are only passing

through and they keep their dog

on a short leash.”

At Spencer Park, Waimairi,

as well as North and South New

Brighton beaches, dogs are

prohibited for 100m either side

of the surf lifesaving clubs’

pavilions.

At New Brighton beach dogs

are prohibited for a distance of a

100m in a northerly direction of

the surf lifesaving club’s pavilion

RESPONSIBLE: Dogs are off-limits on parts of some

beaches this summer unless they are on a lead.

to a point 100m south of the pier.

“We have a big coastline so

there is still many kilometres

of beach where dog owners can

have fun with their pets over

the summer. Just remember you

need to keep your dog under effective

control and clean up after

them if needed,” Vincent said.

The beaches where the daytime

ban applies include the

beach at Cass Bay, Corsair Bay,

Sandy Bay, Paradise Bay, Hays

Bay, Diamond Harbour,

Purau, Akaroa, French Farm,

Le Bons Bay, Little Akaloa,

Okains Bay, Port Levy and Tikao

Bay. At Sumner beach dogs

are prohibited for a distance

of 100m north of the Sumner

Surf Lifesaving Club’s pavilion

through to Cave Rock.

At Taylor’s Mistake beach dogs

are prohibited for a distance

of 50m either side of the surf

lifesaving club pavilion.

Funding options sought

• From page 1

The city council received 58

submissions regarding the matter.

Shirley Recreational Walkers

leader Sue Lang wants to see the

centre reinstated and feared it

might not happen after the rebuild

was deferred for a number

of years.

“I would like to see the Shirley

Community Centre reinstated

back at this site as we were led

to believe it would be happening

back in 2017,” Lang said in her

submission.

“It is on a great bus route and

was used by many groups both

day and night. Other areas have

had their community centres rebuilt,

but not Shirley. Why?”

Prior to the September 4, 2010,

and February 22, 2011, earthquakes,

the well-established centre

was used by many community

groups to host workshops,

classes and fun activities.

Due to the building’s damage

caused by the earthquakes, the

facility was demolished in 2012

and has not been replaced since,

in spite of the area’s growing

population.

While re-development options

were being explored, a temporary

pump track and a table tennis facility

were recently installed after

a young member of the community

had an idea to temporarily

utilise the space.

Mairehau resident Joanne

Byrne used to use the former

community centre and lives less

than 1km away from the site.

“We don’t need nor want

temporary activities, we want a

community centre,” she said.

“I would like to see a community

hub – a combined library

and community centre with

additional community facilities,

like a permanent pump track and

bathrooms for all to use.”

But Richmond Residents and

Business Association president

Vicki Brown disagreed with a

need to rebuild the centre.

“We don’t need a community

centre built back here, Shirley are

having great success with their

facility in MacFarlane Park,” she

said.

“We would like to see more

recreational items added with

more updated play equipment,

and an opportunity to grow the

community garden.”

Other suggestions being floated

around included adding communal

barbecues, a food forest

for foraging, and keeping it as

an open space for planting and

walking.

The community board was

currently looking at alternative

funding options and possible

partnerships with organisations.

distance to Shirley Golf Club and Burwood Park,

close to the beach and a 10-minute bus ride to the

city centre, WINDSORCARE is the ideal choice to call

with mowing lawns and hefty maintenance bills, not

to mention the hassle of trying to find a house sitter

when you want to go on holiday!

Living cottages and NOW, a further 8 brand new

architecturally designed villas ready to move into for

individual. They also provide care for life, meaning,

should the need arise to move into rest home, hospital

or specialised care units, you have the peace of mind

knowing that the very best level of care is on your

door step.

“What sets us apart is our wonderful caring staff”

said Alison Fleming, Sales and Marketing Manager

for WINDSORCARE. “a number of our staff have

been with the company for over 30 years which is a

GREAT NEW READS INSTORE

A Promised Land

by Barack Obama

In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs,

Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man

searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly

personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of

the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation

and turmoil. Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest

political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated

the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4,

2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming

the first African American to hold the nation’s highest office. Reflecting on the

presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome

reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the

dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy.

Mark Skaife

The complete illustrated autobiography of one of Australia’s most

successful touring car drivers ever

This is a portrait of a racing legend featuring photos from Mark’s

private collection, plus toasts and roasts from the racing people who

know him the best.

For more than three decades across the Holden Racing Team’s

golden era, Skaife was the chosen one. Imposing, sometimes

polarising and always revered, his legend is immeasurable and he

remains a pillar of Australian motorsport as a media ambassador

and presenter.

I’m in a United State

by Paul Henry

Paul Henry reflects on his life and times in this homage to the

land of the slightly shabby stars and stripes. Despite his best

intentions, Paul Henry has written his third book. It’s a charming

and eccentric ramble through the United States and back to New

Zealand during the Covid-19 pandemic. There are two weddings,

an election, a new TV show and his love affair with Palm Springs,

sad desert motels, road trips and other passions. A fascinating

window into the intriguing world of Paul Henry. ‘I love the USA.

And in this book, in real time, over the first six months of 2020,

I chronicle my thoughts and actions and draw from my past to

try and work out why. I’m brutally honest and clearly disturbed,

magnificently so! I literally don’t care what people think. You will

be surprised. This is me, now . . . You’re welcome.’ Paul Henry

60 Years Of Coronation Street

by ITV Ventures Limited & Abigail Kemp

Celebrating 60 years since the show’s creation, this book is an

exhaustive, compelling and entertaining history packed full of features

and long-forgotten imagery. Everything you need to know about

Britain’s longest running and most popular soap is found here in this

impressive book.

Bella My Life in Food by Annabel Langbein

For the first time, Annabel Langbein, New Zealand’s most popular cookbook

author, writes about her remarkable life and how food has shaped it,

highlighting some of the recipes that have resonated most strongly with her

over the years. From her childhood fascination with cooking to a teenage

flirtation as a Maoist hippie, to possum trapping and living off the land as

a hunter and forager, to travelling and starting her own croissant business

in Brazil, Annabel’s life has always been centred on food and nature. Out of

this came an obsession with creating cookbooks, introducing a generation

of cooks to her simple recipes for delicious, stylish meals. Annabel

has lived a huge and varied life, and she writes vividly about her many

adventures. From throughout this rich life in food she has chosen 60 key

recipes, created with her signature style and flair that make cooking easy

for everyone, sharing them in this beautifully photographed book.

tRUStS ACt 2019 –

timE tO ACt

The Trusts Act 2019 comes

into effect on 30th January

2021. The 18 month delay

from when the Act was passed

to allow time for settlors,

trustees and advisors to

familiarise themselves with the

changes and requirements and

review their trust is nearly up.

If you have not already started

your review then put it on your

reading list for this summer.

EXERCiSE thE minD

While there are many new

living provisions in the new Act,

life the main ones that will be all. It is time to now locate and

gather these deeds and records.

SUDOKU - EASY SUDOKU - mEDiUm

of interest to trustees are the

setting out of the mandatory

and default duties of trustees,

the core documents to be

held by trustees and the

information that is required to

be provided to beneficiaries.

Trustees are required to know

the terms of the trust and act

honestly and in good faith in

accordance with the terms

and to be actively involved

with the management of the

trust. While this was always

expected, it was not set out in

the legislation before and so

possibly not well understood

by people when they agreed to

become a trustee on a trust.

All trustees must hold

copies of the core trust

documents, the trust deed

and any variations made to

the trust deed, and at least

one trustee must hold all the

trust documents, including

records of assets, minutes

and financial records. For

some existing trusts those

documents might be missing,

spread across several lawyers

and accountants, or not exist at

The new Act includes a

presumption that basic trust

information (the fact that they

are a beneficiary and who the

trustees are) must be made

available to every beneficiary.

Beneficiaries are also to be

made aware that they are

able to request additional

trust information. This may

possibly pose the biggest

challenge for many settlors

and trustees. However this

presumption as to the supply

of information is qualified by

certain considerations that

trustees may take account of

in deciding what, if any, information to

provide.

Many family trusts were set up with a

wide class of beneficiaries including

the nieces and nephews and partners of

beneficiaries in addition to the settlors

and their children and grandchildren. It

may never have been intended that most

of these beneficiaries would ever receive

a benefit under the trust but they were

tURn pAgE fOR SOlUtiOnS

included as possible recipients. If your

trust deed allows a change to beneficiaries

this should be included in your review

now.

specialist knowledge available to provide

you with legal advice about your trust.

Ali McGregor has rolled her passions for Italy

and lemons into her business, Ali’s Lemons. Her

love for creating delectable recipes of lemon based

desserts, liquor, and curds have patrons around the

country enjoying her products.

A Cantabrian local, Ali has a diversified

background, which enhances her love for being in

the kitchen and creating lemon masterpieces.

we asked ali about her

background and where her love

for lemons came from?

Growing up on a Wairarapa farm, the kitchen of

Ali’s family home was the hub of the farm and the

home, the place where family, friends, visitors, and

workers all gathered and shared food together.

Meals were prepared from produce grown on the

farm.

Morning and afternoon teas have always been

symbols of country hospitality. On the farm,

an array of freshly made treats along with iced

cakes and biscuits from the twenty-plus regularly

replenished cake tins, welcomed all visitors.

Ali learned how to cook by osmosis: by

watching and helping, and as she became more

accomplished and confident, making the timetested

recipes handed down from generation to

generation. For Ali, food and friendship continue

to be intertwined: preparing delicious food to

share gives great satisfaction. Consequently, she

made a career shift to include teaching food and

nutrition as well as English.

A life-long fascination with Italy has grown from

singing Italian opera and enjoying Italian art and

architecture. She learned the language and many

Italian cities including Italy to Venice, Rome,

Tuscany, the Amalfi Coast, Le Marche, the Cinque

Terre.

Against this background, the devastating

Christchurch earthquakes of 2011 that forced

many to re-evaluate their lives, were also the

catalyst for Ali to establish Ali’s Lemons. Her range

of products draws on her experiences, and belief

that food sustains not only the body and soul but is

also a celebration of life and love.

Ingredients are everything

Locally sourced ingredients including organic,

Yen Ben lemons are the foundation product which

offers the sharp, tart flavour. Yen Ben are a true

lemon, unlike the much sweeter Meyer lemon

which is the most prolific lemon grown in the

Canterbury region.

Free range eggs are used in the curds and saffron

from Wynyard Estate which uses the international

standard of quality and is premium grade 1.

Green Bee Honeydew is used in both the Lemon

Honeydew Reviver and the Lemon Caramelised

Onion.

how do you spend your down

time?

I love music, particularly classical and opera, has

been a passion all my life. I studied singing at

Victoria University and then moved to Auckland

to study with Dame Sister Mary Leo and then was

a singer and I still love to sing.

I love reading and belong to a book group,

working in my working and travelling.

what is your earliest memory of

lemons ?

Growing up on the farm in the Wairarapa, there

was an enormous lemon tree which grew right

up against my bedroom window and on warm

evenings the delicious perfume of the waxy

blossoms filled my room, perhaps this was the

beginning of my love affair with lemons !

living

technology

Biotech is improving everyday life without

most Kiwis realising, a new BioTechNZ

research report says.

The landmark BioTechNZ study analysed

the state of biotechnology and its impact and

benefits for the New Zealand economy and

society.

BioTechNZ is a member of the NZTech

Alliance, which brings together 20 technology

associations with more than 1500 member

organisations who employ more than 10

percent of the workforce, who are working to

help create a more prosperous New Zealand

underpinned by technology.

NZTech chief executive Graeme Muller says

the report, due for public release this month,

captures the major impact that biotechnology

is quietly having on all Kiwis.

“Biotechnology is being applied in New

Zealand to reduce waste, create vaccines,

develop healthier food and more efficient

crops,” Muller says.

“One of New Zealand’s largest companies used

biotechnology to develop milk with the A2

protein only, to help people who have trouble

drinking regular cow’s milk.

“Another growing New Zealand success story

is a company that uses biotechnology processes

to extract gold and other precious metals from

electronic waste.

“While Kiwi families are concerned about

the enormous use of petroleum products

for energy, new plastics are coming into the

home, made with corn and other plants, not

petroleum, via a biotechnology processes.

“Biotechnology is also being applied in

more direct ways to environmental cleanup.

A process called bioremediation uses

microorganisms to reduce, eliminate, or

contain contaminants in the soil or other

environments.

“As obesity rates climb to epidemic levels,

biotechnology is helping to create a new

generation of healthier plant-based oils. These

oils are free of the trans fats that can raise

cholesterol and contribute to heart disease.

Soybeans, corn, cotton and canola have

been enhanced to resist insects, herbicides

and drought conditions, allowing farmers to

increase productivity.

“New Zealand scientists have developed grasses

that reduce methane emissions from livestock,

which will help reduce greenhouse gases.

“Tomorrow, biotechnology will bring better

health and treatments for disease that will

produce all kinds of medical products for New

Zealanders.

“There are a growing number of global

opportunities for biotech and New Zealand’s

strengths allow scientists and companies to

identify global niche opportunities, particularly

in the animal sciences, horticulture, marine

and biomedical industries.”

Start a new

Christmas tradition

What could be better than starting some new family traditions this year? Christmas traditions are memories

in the making and help spread a little festive cheer whether with your loved ones or out in the community.

10 great ideas to help make Christmas a magical time of the year

1. Create a Christmas playlist with some of

your favourite carols and songs – play it

loud and every day, if that’s your thing.

Or plan a pre-Christmas sing-along

evening – don’t forget to supply the song

sheet so everyone can join in too.

2. Get into the spirit of Christmas by getting

together with family or friends to help

decorate each other’s houses – turn up

the music, drink the wine and go all out

to deck the halls.

3. Make and send homemade Christmas

cards – there’s nothing more exciting

than getting mail, right? Or how about

writing some generic ones and dropping

them into your nearest retirement

home to brighten up an elderly person’s

Christmas.

4. Buy your family Christmas tee-shirts or

Santa hats to wear on the day and don’t

forget to take a family selfie.

5. Fill a shoebox with gifts for a child, wrap

it with a bow, and deliver to the nearest

community gift tree – check with your

local library and label with age and

gender.

6. Have a yearly family, friends or neighbour

outdoor games night with drinks and

nibbles leading up to the big day – think

Pétanque, hoopla, mini golf, giant chess,

or croquet.

7. Take a leaf out of Iceland’s traditional

‘Jolabokaflod’ or Christmas Book Flood,

and give a book as a gift on Christmas

Eve each year – don’t forget to write

inside the cover who it’s from and the

date.

8. Make a list of must see Christmas movies

to watch a week before Christmas day

and tick off the ones you’ve watched.

Don’t forget the popcorn and hot

chocolate or nibbles and wine.

9. Make and give a handmade ornament

as a gift each year – the lucky receiver’s

Christmas tree will be covered with

beautiful, handmade memories.

10. Make homemade hot chocolate on

Christmas Eve or on Christmas morning

to drink while the presents are being

opened – decorate with whipped cream,

grated chocolate, marshmallows, or

crushed candy canes.

Give a Christmas

gift to remember!

With summer on the way there’s

never been a better excuse to take

a break and head to Hanmer Springs.

Just 90 minutes north of Christchurch,

Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa

offers something for everyone - whether

it’s that hard-to-buy-for friend or a well

Rāwhiti School celebrated the opening of its new playground recently. The project was jointly funded by the

school’s PTA and board of trustees with community fundraising events held over the past few years. The name

given to the new revamped play space is Hikihiki, which encapsulates the concept of excitement and being

lifted up or elevated. The area provides children with opportunities to play with others and challenge themselves.

Rāwhiti School will now choose another area of their grounds to re-develop next year.

Discover Wirihana’s school for boys

The New Brighton

Museum has a rich

history spanning more

than 100 years. Peggy

Butterfield writes

monthly about a

historical display at the

heritage museum

IN 1890, William Wilson bought

14 acres and six perches of land

and built a large house on the

corner of what is now Rowan

Ave and Rowses Rd.

The Maori name for Wilson

is Wirihana, and Wilson was

referred to as Wirihana Wilson.

The house and property were

also known to the community as

Wirihana and the tram stop and

loop on Pages Rd near to Rowan

Ave was known as the Wirihana

loop.

Wilson then turned the large

house into a school for boys.

The area had “hundreds

of acres of scrubland, pine

plantations, sandhills and a fine

sea beach”, an ideal area for boys

to grow.

There were paddocks with

lupins and gorse. The school kept

a cow.

The late Stuart Rutherford,

when a pupil there, milked the

cow for a shilling a week.

And there was a large

greenhouse. The tomatoes in

his greenhouse loomed large in

several ex-pupils’ memories. A

punishment for poor work or

being late might be to prune the

tomatoes with Wilson.

The diet seemed to be almost

entirely composed of tomatoes.

To do Mrs Wilson justice, others

record that the food was actually

very good, although those of her

grandchildren who remember

her in her old age in England

cannot recall signs of the gentler

domestic virtues.

She seemed severe,

authoritarian, and demanding of

perfection.

But grandson David Wilson’s

earliest recollection of her was a

woman dressed severely in black,

taking a fancy to him at the age

of about two, which would be

in 1930, and pronouncing that

the boy should have the NZ

beautifully.

The school was known as

Wirihana, but everyone still

called it Wilson’s school.

However, one effect of the

change in name was to get the

pupils to call William Wilson,

behind his back “Wearie Willie.”

But he was also affectionately

called “Professor” Wilson by his

neighbours.

He was described variously as

genial, understanding, calling

the boys by their nicknames, a

great story-teller, with yarns that

he would serialise to keep up

interest. But he was also a great

disciplinarian.

Several times each week he

would walk 20 or 30 of the pupils

into New Brighton after school,

where they would spend an hour

or two in the shops or on the

beach.

The boys were described as

exceptionally well-mannered,

walking along in double file.

Mrs Wilson was in charge of

the house and the dormitories.

Punishment from her could be

six of the best with the cane. But

the boys still had fun.

But in 1927, when William

was 75, they retired, closing the

school and giving a pension to

the one remaining long-service

teacher.

The large 14-room house and

5.5 acres of land were purchased

by the late James Finnerty.

Later it was divided into flats,

sold, subdivided again, and the

land developed.

CALLS HAVE been made to

stop rates increases in response

to the Covid-19 crisis.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this

year.

The city council is proposing

an average rates increase of 4.65

per cent across all ratepayers in

this year’s Draft Annual Plan

which is currently under public

consultation until April 5 and

will be finalised before July 1.

The 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.

Said Cr MacDonald: “In
