STUDENTS FROM Shirley

Intermediate School have seen

their hard work pay off with

their decorated bus shelter

on North Pde being unveiled

recently.

The artwork was part of the

‘Art in the Hood’ project, which

is a collaboration between

advertising company oOh!

NZ, the city council and local

schools.

The project saw 28 primary

and intermediate schools

from Auckland, Hamilton,

Rotorua, Napier, Wellington

and Christchurch create pieces

of art reflecting something

intriguing, fun or unique

about the neighbourhood they

live in.

Shirley Intermediate School

students came up with the

theme of ‘movement’ and

created some stunning

artworks for their community

to enjoy.

Twenty eight schools

nationwide will follow, with

similar artwork on their local

bus shelters.

Controversial

Guild St

social

housing

complex

opens

next week

• By Bea Gooding

A NEW controversial social

housing development on Guild

St officially opens next week after

months of concerns raised by

nearby residents.

The developments caused a stir

in Richmond due to concerns the

project did not comply with the

city council’s special character

area and earthworks rules.

However, earlier this year, the

Christchurch Methodist Mission

and its developers told Pegasus

Post that requirements for both

were met.

Owned by CMM, the housing

will provide 15 families on the

Ministry of Social Development’s

housing register the security of a

long-term lease and an affordable

home.

Mike Williams has lived on

Guild St for 22 years and has had

a front-row seat watching the

developments unfold from across

the street.

Picnic area plan for river corridor

AN AREA of the Ōtākaro Avon

River corridor near Gayhurst Rd

looks set to be transformed into a

new community picnic area.

City council’s finance and performance

committee will decide

next week whether to approve

a refined design for a riverside

landing in Dallington and proceed

with its procurement and

construction.

After considering

community

feedback

on the initial

landing design

Andrew

Rutledge

in June, city

council staff

have advanced

the concept

of “a picnic in the forest” and

worked alongside Mahaanui Kurataiao

and Matapopere to ensure

the design reflects mana whenua

values and narratives.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge says that after

receiving feedback from the

community, the city council has

removed the option for car parking

at Rupert Pl, improved access

to the river, improved cycling

infrastructure, and taken on

board recommendations to keep

existing substantial native trees.

“We’ve listened to what the

public has told us and made

MODERN: The design for a riverside landing in Dallington.

some key changes to the design,

usability and amenities of the

Dallington Landing,” Rutledge

said.

“This is the first of a number of

landings that will be built along

the Ōtākaro Avon River. Our desire

is for them to become muchloved

areas where the community

can connect with others and with

the Ōtākaro Avon River corridor.”

The Dallington Landing will

feature signposted entrances,

shelters, koru-shaped pathways,

picnic areas and tables, steps

down to the river, a water

fountain, bike parks, and a

wheelchair-accessible toilet

block.

The landing and three pedestrian

bridges across the Ōtākaro

Avon River are being funded by

a $13.7 million grant from the

Christchurch Earthquake Appeal

Trust, as the first developments

of the corridor’s green spine. $2.3

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

million of the grant has been set

aside for the Dallington landing.

The Green Spine forms the

core of the Ōtākaro Avon River

Regeneration Area. At 11km

long and 345ha in size, the green

spine extends along both sides of

the river and will be primarily be

ecologically restored to original

native forest and wetlands.

It will also contain nature

trails, cycleways, landings and

community spaces.

Summer

events for

New Brighton

A SUMMER programme in New

Brighton and across the city is set

to take you worldwide without the

need to quarantine.

Kite Day will return to New

Brighton Beach on January 30 as

part of the city council’s Summer-

Time programme, which kicks off

on New Year’s Eve.

The programme includes a

line-up of free events such as a

theatre production, Christchurch

Symphony Orchestra concerts

and the kiting spectacular.

It starts on New Year’s Eve with

The Edge NYE20 – a free music

concert in North Hagley Park

headlined by Kiwi music legends

The Black Seeds.

In mid-January, Anthony

Harper Summer Theatre returns

to the Botanic Gardens with a

production of Around the World

in 80 Days.

Symphony in the City is a

new addition, with the CSO

performing a te Reo and English

rendition of the Peter and the

Wolf in Victoria Square.

Tenants will move in before for Christmas

•From page 1

He was feeling optimistic

about the future in spite of earlier

concerns that the temporary

housing would increase traffic

congestion, removed significant

trees, and did not physically fit in

with the rest of the houses in the

area.

The site is located in a character

area, which meant residents

spent thousands making sure the

exterior of their homes complied

with the rules that came with the

classification.

Said Williams: “I see a need

for it. Life hasn’t gotten easier for

those people so they will at least

have some dignity with a roof

over their head.

“In some ways, it could’ve been

handled better – we were just

told what was happening without

having a say. But we have to be

realistic too, that land’s not going

to stay vacant forever.

“There’s no point in getting

upset over something you can’t

change. It all comes down to

management now.”

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams will open the complex

next Friday in time for tenants to

move in before Christmas.

It sits on the former Churchill

Courts site, on land leased by

Anglican Care.

The houses were used as

temporary accommodation

at Linwood Park before being

moved to the site in August.

CMM executive director Jill

Hawkey said the development

provides a unique opportunity

for families to settle and feel

secure, perhaps for the first time

in their lives.

“We’re really pleased to have

arrived at this point and look

forward to welcoming families

into their new homes in the

coming days,” she said.

An additional building will

serve as a dedicated community

house, from which a community

worker will be permanently

based.

Demand for social housing

in the city has increased from

482 applicant households in

June 2015 to 1,232 in June 2020,

COMPLETION: Controversial social housing on

Guild St will open next week, just in time for

families to move in later this month.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

according to Government figures.

This 156 per cent increase in

homelessness over the last five

years indicates the scale of the

problem and the urgent need

for warm, affordable and secure

housing for the city.

Consent for the development

was granted in March by the city

council, which heard the views of

nearby residents in reaching this

decision.

The site’s characteristics

identified it as ideal for the

relocatable houses, and for

providing ample play space for

the children of residents and offstreet

parking.

A large area in the north-east

corner has been reserved for

continued use by community

gardening groups.

The houses are away from

boundaries and the road.

Housing development to benefit community

A NEW 19-home community

housing development in the east

of the city has officially opened

its doors.

The development is the first of

its kind on the boundary of New

Brighton and the red zone.

Ōtautahi Community Housing

Trust chief executive Cate Kearney

said the new development

would be welcomed by people

who love living in this unique

part of the city, and continue

to experience challenges in the

aftermath of the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes.

“There’s a way of life here, a

connection to the sea, the strong

history of early Christchurch

embedded in the east; people

love living in this area, and

ŌCHT is so pleased to be able to

help some of make their homes

here,” she said.

The project is part of the

agreement that the trust has

with the city council to provide

more community and affordable

homes across the city.

Some of the residents were

returnees – people who lived in

the pre-refurbished homes and

wanted to come back after the

work was completed.

“Returning residents Guy and

Thomas were among the first to

see the new-look homes when

the site was blessed this month. I

understand they are thrilled with

the refurbishments and will be

moving back in the next day or

so,” said Cate Kearney.

Reg Stillwell Place includes

12 relocatable homes that were

transported from Linwood Park

in August this year.

They have been refurbished

as two, three to four-bedroom

homes.

Meanwhile, a community

hall already on the site was also

turned into a three-bedroom

home, and the six one-bedroom

bedsits have been redeveloped as

one-bedroom houses.

Thirteen of these new homes

will be supplied to the Ministry

of Housing and Urban Development

to provide much-needed

homes to people on the Housing

Register.

The most recent advice from

the Ministry of Housing and

Urban Development said more

than 1200 applicants are on

the public housing register in

Christchurch.

Housing minister Megan

Woods was also at the site to officially

open the housing development.

Said Kearney: “Community

housing was part of the last

Government’s plan to get more

New Zealanders into housing,

and the challenges of the

Covid-19 pandemic is a core

critical consideration as we plan

for the future. Minister Woods

totally understands this. As

Christchurch grows and our

population ages, the demand for

affordable housing is increasing.”

SEASONS GREETINGS FROM HOUSE

OF TRAVEL MERIVALE-SHIRLEY

As we near the end of 2020 we thought it would be an opportune time to reflect on the year that no one expected…

As many of you will know we merged our Shirley team with the Merivale team in August and now we are based in the Merivale village.

Still all the same emails and contact numbers so please do not hesitate to get in touch with us, or better still pop in to visit us in our new store.

2020 has been a difficult year for the House of Travel group and for the travel industry across the globe. We have had to downsize our teams,

minimize costs and pivot our business to a domestic market. It has come with major challenges for us but thankfully due to some Government

support and our own work behind the scenes we have been able to weather the storm and will continue to provide travel services to fellow

Cantabrians.

We anticipate a Cook Island travel bubble to open very soon and hopefully parts of Australia and other Pacific Islands will follow soon after.

While destinations further abroad may seem out of reach, this presents a fantastic opportunity to explore parts of

New Zealand and then hopefully our South Pacific neighbours as well.

As travel will largely be focused on our South Pacific region we thought we’d take the chance to make you aware

of some of the amazing places you can visit that are a bit off the beaten track. This may get you thinking about

what your travel plans may be in 2021 and of course we’d love to help you get there. Feel free to pop in to have

a chat about your travel plans or you can email us at Merivaleshirley@hot.co.nz

Here in Canterbury we are a resilient bunch and House of Travel Merivale-Shirley will be here for the long term.

Our team are really looking forward to helping you plan your next holiday away!

See you soon & we wish you all the best for the festive season.

Nicky, Lisa, Julia, Aimee, Janine, Bella, Claire and Kelly.

HOT MERIVALE-SHIRLEY DISCOVERS...

THE COOK ISLANDS:

For those active relaxers who like things to do, Rarotonga offers

some cool experiences such as paddle boarding at night,

eco cycle tours, quad biking, fishing trips, guided treks

and yoga retreats…

FIJI:

Take time to visit the Yasawa Islands. An island group that is a bit

off the beaten track but no less beautiful. Due to their location

these islands are much quieter and give you a real sense of

peace and solitude, yet still authentically Fijian. Some of our

favourites are the Octopus Resort, Blue Lagoon Resort and

the Mantaray Island Resort.

TASMANIA:

A place often overlooked as being “too like NZ” – simply Tassie

is a place not to be missed. Perfect for a self-drive itinerary

and highlights are: Art Galleries & markets in Hobart, cruise to

Bruny Island, experience the wild West Coast near Strahan by

a historic train, take in a boutique distillery at Burnie, visit the

Cataract Gorge near Launceston and take a chairlift across the

wide river, paddle or cruise the stunning Wineglass Bay…

plus much much more.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA:

SOUTH AUSTRALIA:

QUEENSLAND:

WA offers more than just Perth – hire a car and explore the

South West Coast. This area offers wineries, stunning beaches,

tree top walks, wildflowers, rock formations and quirky towns.

Grab a group of friends and rent your own houseboat and

meander along the Murray River at your own pace. Take in

wineries and the stunning scenery along the way, fire up

the BBQ at night and enjoy the serenity!

Head North and enjoy the tropical weather and lush rainforests.

Instead of the main tourist areas you could head into the

hinterland and experience an eco-retreat in the treetops, or get

out on the water and roll out your “swag” and sleepover on a

pontoon floating above the Great Barrier Reef.

Whatever you love to do or see we are here to help and turn it into a reality! We urge you not to book via international online websites and send your money abroad.

Instead support your local HOT Travel agents and in return we guarantee great prices, value for money, 24/7 support and friendly, experienced consultants.

“EXPERIENCE UNIQUE AND MAGICAL PLACES

ALL WITHIN A STONE’S THROW FROM HOME.”

ESTUARY MATTERS

Carpet factory key part of reserve’s history

The Avon-

Heathcote

Estuary

Ihutai

Trust is a

non-profit

organisation

formed to protect one

of New Zealand’s most

important coastal

wetlands. Each week,

board members will

discuss matters regarding

the estuary, its rich history

and what makes it unique.

This week Bill Simpson

writes about carpet maker

Nimrod Mitchell

AN EARLY hero of the industry

in Christchurch was Nimrod

Mitchell who built a carpetmaking

factory on a site which

is now part of Charlesworth

Wetland Reserve.

He arrived in Christchurch

from the United Kingdom in

1879 and in 1884 opened the

Zealandia Carpet Factory. He

exported to other parts of the

colony and also to Sydney.

The Illustrated Guide to

Christchurch and Neighbourhood

of 1885 praised Mitchell as “the

right man in the right place,” and

described the opening as “a red

letter day truly, not only for the

promoter but also for the whole

colony of New Zealand.”

But perhaps the carpet business

was not so rosy. In 1886

Mitchell was charged with

burning down his own factory to

defraud his insurers. A witness in

the trial, George Richardson, said

Congratulations to

Proudly supported by

Hanmer Springs

he was offered £40 by Mitchell to

burn the factory down.

Richardson suggested kerosene

and Mitchell had replied

“that will do and I will give you

the key of the factory.”

However, Richardson later told

Mitchell he would not set fire to

the factory; but two weeks later

the factory was burnt down and

Mitchell himself was judged to

be the culprit.

That is not the end of the story.

In August 1887, Sir Julius Vogel,

who had been Premier of New

Zealand and also the colonial

treasurer, paid tribute to the

once-destroyed but now rebuilt

carpet factory.

Apparently, Zealandia was

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.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Christmas is a great time for passing down recipes that are tried and true becoming

traditional family favourites. The owner of this recipe says her mum used to make

the pudding on Christmas Eve and would take the bowl and wooden spoon around

everyone in the house to stir the mixture and make a wish.

Make a Wish Christmas Pudding

You will need:

• 1 ½ tbsp butter

• 1 ½ tsp baking soda

• 1 ½ cups of boiling water

• 1 ½ cups flour

• 1 ½ cups mixed fruit or sultanas

• ¾ cup sugar

Method:

1. In a glass or stainless steel bowl,

melt the butter (over hot water)

and dissolve the baking soda.

2. Add the boiling water and

sugar.

3. When cool, add flour and

mixed fruit.

4. Stir all the ingredients together

and make a Christmas wish.

5. Cover bowl with a tea towel and

allow to stand overnight.

The next day:

• Place mixture into a greased

bowl or ice-cream container,

cover with tinfoil and place in a

pot of water, just deep enough

so the bowl doesn’t float.

• Boil pudding for four hours and

check regularly to make sure

the water has boiled dry. Top

up carefully with extra water if

required.

• Serve with heaps of Chantilly

cream!

Chantilly

Cream

You will need:

• 1 x bottle of cream

• ½ tsp vanilla essence

• 1 tbsp icing sugar to

sweeten

Method:

Put cream, vanilla essence

and icing sugar in a bowl and

whisk until light and fluffy with

softly formed peaks. Cover and

refrigerate until ready to serve.

Santa’s Brekkie Pancakes

with fresh berries

This one is not just for the kids – the sweetness of the bananas makes these

pancakes scrumptious and a delicious, healthy breakfast hit for everyone!

You will need:

• 4-5 bananas (soft enough to mash)

• 4 eggs

• ½ cup rice flour

• 2 tbsp whole linseed

• ½ tsp salt

• grated lemon rind

• juice from 1 lemon

• splash of vanilla

• butter to cook the pancakes

Method:

1. Peel and mash the bananas in a bowl.

2. Stir in the eggs, vanilla, linseed, salt

and lemon ingredients.

3. Add flour and mix to a smooth batter.

4. Cook pancakes in frypan on one side

until they bubble on the surface or hold

together enough to be flipped over.

5. If the mixture is thick, flatten the

pancakes out once they’ve been turned

over. Each pancake should be around

1cm thick.

Kid’s version:

Decorate each pancake with red berries

for Santa’s hat, Greek yoghurt or

whipped cream for Santa’s beard and

chocolate buttons or grape halves for

Santa’s eyes.

Adult’s version:

Serve with a mix of fresh strawberries,

blueberries, raspberries, and

boysenberries. Top off with Greek

yoghurt.
