STUDENTS FROM Shirley<br />

Intermediate School have seen<br />

their hard work pay off with<br />

their decorated bus shelter<br />

on North Pde being unveiled<br />

recently.<br />

The artwork was part of the<br />

‘Art in the Hood’ project, which<br />

is a collaboration between<br />

advertising company oOh!<br />

NZ, the city council and local<br />

schools.<br />

The project saw 28 primary<br />

and intermediate schools<br />

from Auckland, Hamilton,<br />

Rotorua, Napier, Wellington<br />

and Christchurch create pieces<br />

of art reflecting something<br />

intriguing, fun or unique<br />

about the neighbourhood they<br />

live in.<br />

Shirley Intermediate School<br />

students came up with the<br />

theme of ‘movement’ and<br />

created some stunning<br />

artworks for their community<br />

to enjoy.<br />

Twenty eight schools<br />

nationwide will follow, with<br />

similar artwork on their local<br />

Controversial<br />

Guild St<br />

social<br />

housing<br />

complex<br />

opens<br />

next week<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

A NEW controversial social<br />

housing development on Guild<br />

St officially opens next week after<br />

months of concerns raised by<br />

nearby residents.<br />

The developments caused a stir<br />

in Richmond due to concerns the<br />

project did not comply with the<br />

city council’s special character<br />

area and earthworks rules.<br />

However, earlier this year, the<br />

Christchurch Methodist Mission<br />

and its developers told <strong>Pegasus</strong><br />

<strong>Post</strong> that requirements for both<br />

were met.<br />

Owned by CMM, the housing<br />

will provide 15 families on the<br />

Ministry of Social Development’s<br />

housing register the security of a<br />

long-term lease and an affordable<br />

home.<br />

Mike Williams has lived on<br />

Guild St for 22 years and has had<br />

a front-row seat watching the<br />

developments unfold from across<br />

the street.<br />

Picnic area plan for river corridor<br />

AN AREA of the Ōtākaro Avon<br />

River corridor near Gayhurst Rd<br />

looks set to be transformed into a<br />

new community picnic area.<br />

City council’s finance and performance<br />

committee will decide<br />

next week whether to approve<br />

a refined design for a riverside<br />

landing in Dallington and proceed<br />

with its procurement and<br />

construction.<br />

After considering<br />

community<br />

feedback<br />

on the initial<br />

landing design<br />

Andrew<br />

Rutledge<br />

in June, city<br />

council staff<br />

have advanced<br />

the concept<br />

of “a picnic in the forest” and<br />

worked alongside Mahaanui Kurataiao<br />

and Matapopere to ensure<br />

the design reflects mana whenua<br />

values and narratives.<br />

City council head of parks<br />

Andrew Rutledge says that after<br />

receiving feedback from the<br />

community, the city council has<br />

removed the option for car parking<br />

at Rupert Pl, improved access<br />

to the river, improved cycling<br />

infrastructure, and taken on<br />

board recommendations to keep<br />

existing substantial native trees.<br />

“We’ve listened to what the<br />

public has told us and made<br />

MODERN: The design for a riverside landing in Dallington.<br />

some key changes to the design,<br />

usability and amenities of the<br />

Dallington Landing,” Rutledge<br />

said.<br />

“This is the first of a number of<br />

landings that will be built along<br />

the Ōtākaro Avon River. Our desire<br />

is for them to become muchloved<br />

areas where the community<br />

can connect with others and with<br />

the Ōtākaro Avon River corridor.”<br />

The Dallington Landing will<br />

feature signposted entrances,<br />

shelters, koru-shaped pathways,<br />

picnic areas and tables, steps<br />

down to the river, a water<br />

fountain, bike parks, and a<br />

wheelchair-accessible toilet<br />

block.<br />

The landing and three pedestrian<br />

bridges across the Ōtākaro<br />

Avon River are being funded by<br />

a $13.7 million grant from the<br />

Christchurch Earthquake Appeal<br />

Trust, as the first developments<br />

of the corridor’s green spine. $2.3<br />

PHOTO: NEWSLINE<br />

million of the grant has been set<br />

aside for the Dallington landing.<br />

The Green Spine forms the<br />

core of the Ōtākaro Avon River<br />

Regeneration Area. At 11km<br />

long and 345ha in size, the green<br />

spine extends along both sides of<br />

the river and will be primarily be<br />

ecologically restored to original<br />

native forest and wetlands.<br />

It will also contain nature<br />

trails, cycleways, landings and<br />

community spaces.<br />

Summer<br />

events for<br />

New Brighton<br />

A SUMMER programme in New<br />

Brighton and across the city is set<br />

to take you worldwide without the<br />

need to quarantine.<br />

Kite Day will return to New<br />

Brighton Beach on January 30 as<br />

part of the city council’s Summer-<br />

Time programme, which kicks off<br />

on New Year’s Eve.<br />

The programme includes a<br />

line-up of free events such as a<br />

theatre production, Christchurch<br />

Symphony Orchestra concerts<br />

and the kiting spectacular.<br />

It starts on New Year’s Eve with<br />

The Edge NYE20 – a free music<br />

concert in North Hagley Park<br />

headlined by Kiwi music legends<br />

The Black Seeds.<br />

In mid-January, Anthony<br />

Harper Summer Theatre returns<br />

to the Botanic Gardens with a<br />

production of Around the World<br />

in 80 Days.<br />

Symphony in the City is a<br />

new addition, with the CSO<br />

performing a te Reo and English<br />

rendition of the Peter and the<br />

Wolf in Victoria Square.<br />

Tenants will move in before for Christmas<br />

•From page 1<br />

He was feeling optimistic<br />

about the future in spite of earlier<br />

concerns that the temporary<br />

housing would increase traffic<br />

congestion, removed significant<br />

trees, and did not physically fit in<br />

with the rest of the houses in the<br />

area.<br />

The site is located in a character<br />

area, which meant residents<br />

spent thousands making sure the<br />

exterior of their homes complied<br />

with the rules that came with the<br />

classification.<br />

Said Williams: “I see a need<br />

for it. Life hasn’t gotten easier for<br />

those people so they will at least<br />

have some dignity with a roof<br />

over their head.<br />

“In some ways, it could’ve been<br />

handled better – we were just<br />

told what was happening without<br />

having a say. But we have to be<br />

realistic too, that land’s not going<br />

to stay vacant forever.<br />

“There’s no point in getting<br />

upset over something you can’t<br />

change. It all comes down to<br />

management now.”<br />

Christchurch East MP Poto<br />

Williams will open the complex<br />

next Friday in time for tenants to<br />

move in before Christmas.<br />

It sits on the former Churchill<br />

Courts site, on land leased by<br />

Anglican Care.<br />

The houses were used as<br />

temporary accommodation<br />

at Linwood Park before being<br />

moved to the site in August.<br />

CMM executive director Jill<br />

Hawkey said the development<br />

provides a unique opportunity<br />

for families to settle and feel<br />

secure, perhaps for the first time<br />

in their lives.<br />

“We’re really pleased to have<br />

arrived at this point and look<br />

forward to welcoming families<br />

into their new homes in the<br />

coming days,” she said.<br />

An additional building will<br />

serve as a dedicated community<br />

house, from which a community<br />

worker will be permanently<br />

based.<br />

Demand for social housing<br />

in the city has increased from<br />

482 applicant households in<br />

June 2015 to 1,232 in June <strong>2020</strong>,<br />

COMPLETION: Controversial social housing on<br />

Guild St will open next week, just in time for<br />

families to move in later this month.<br />

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

according to Government figures.<br />

This 156 per cent increase in<br />

homelessness over the last five<br />

years indicates the scale of the<br />

problem and the urgent need<br />

for warm, affordable and secure<br />

housing for the city.<br />

Consent for the development<br />

was granted in March by the city<br />

council, which heard the views of<br />

nearby residents in reaching this<br />

decision.<br />

The site’s characteristics<br />

identified it as ideal for the<br />

relocatable houses, and for<br />

providing ample play space for<br />

the children of residents and offstreet<br />

parking.<br />

A large area in the north-east<br />

continued use by community<br />

Housing development to benefit community<br />

A NEW 19-home community<br />

housing development in the east<br />

of the city has officially opened<br />

its doors.<br />

The development is the first of<br />

its kind on the boundary of New<br />

Brighton and the red zone.<br />

Ōtautahi Community Housing<br />

Trust chief executive Cate Kearney<br />

said the new development<br />

would be welcomed by people<br />

who love living in this unique<br />

part of the city, and continue<br />

to experience challenges in the<br />

aftermath of the 2010 and 2011<br />

earthquakes.<br />

“There’s a way of life here, a<br />

connection to the sea, the strong<br />

history of early Christchurch<br />

embedded in the east; people<br />

love living in this area, and<br />

ŌCHT is so pleased to be able to<br />

help some of make their homes<br />

here,” she said.<br />

The project is part of the<br />

agreement that the trust has<br />

with the city council to provide<br />

more community and affordable<br />

homes across the city.<br />

Some of the residents were<br />

returnees – people who lived in<br />

the pre-refurbished homes and<br />

wanted to come back after the<br />

work was completed.<br />

“Returning residents Guy and<br />

Thomas were among the first to<br />

see the new-look homes when<br />

the site was blessed this month. I<br />

understand they are thrilled with<br />

CEREMONY: (From left) – Housing Minister Megan Woods helps cut the ribbon at the<br />

opening of the community housing development.<br />

the refurbishments and will be<br />

moving back in the next day or<br />

so,” said Cate Kearney.<br />

Reg Stillwell Place includes<br />

12 relocatable homes that were<br />

transported from Linwood Park<br />

in August this year.<br />

They have been refurbished<br />

as two, three to four-bedroom<br />

homes.<br />

Meanwhile, a community<br />

hall already on the site was also<br />

turned into a three-bedroom<br />

home, and the six one-bedroom<br />

bedsits have been redeveloped as<br />

one-bedroom houses.<br />

Thirteen of these new homes<br />

will be supplied to the Ministry<br />

of Housing and Urban Development<br />

to provide much-needed<br />

homes to people on the Housing<br />

Register.<br />

The most recent advice from<br />

the Ministry of Housing and<br />

Urban Development said more<br />

than 1200 applicants are on<br />

the public housing register in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

Housing minister Megan<br />

Woods was also at the site to officially<br />

open the housing development.<br />

Said Kearney: “Community<br />

housing was part of the last<br />

Government’s plan to get more<br />

New Zealanders into housing,<br />

and the challenges of the<br />

Covid-19 pandemic is a core<br />

critical consideration as we plan<br />

for the future. Minister Woods<br />

totally understands this. As<br />

Christchurch grows and our<br />

population ages, the demand for<br />

affordable housing is increasing.”

SEASONS GREETINGS FROM HOUSE<br />

OF TRAVEL MERIVALE-SHIRLEY<br />

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

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.<br />

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.<br />

<strong>2020</strong> 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,<br />

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

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<br />

Cantabrians.<br />

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

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

New Zealand and then hopefully our South Pacific neighbours as well.<br />

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

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

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<br />

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

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

Our team are really looking forward to helping you plan your next holiday away!<br />

See you soon & we wish you all the best for the festive season.<br />

Nicky, Lisa, Julia, Aimee, Janine, Bella, Claire and Kelly.<br />

HOT MERIVALE-SHIRLEY DISCOVERS...<br />

THE COOK ISLANDS:<br />

For those active relaxers who like things to do, Rarotonga offers<br />

some cool experiences such as paddle boarding at night,<br />

eco cycle tours, quad biking, fishing trips, guided treks<br />

and yoga retreats…<br />

FIJI:<br />

Take time to visit the Yasawa Islands. An island group that is a bit<br />

off the beaten track but no less beautiful. Due to their location<br />

these islands are much quieter and give you a real sense of<br />

peace and solitude, yet still authentically Fijian. Some of our<br />

favourites are the Octopus Resort, Blue Lagoon Resort and<br />

the Mantaray Island Resort.<br />

TASMANIA:<br />

A place often overlooked as being “too like NZ” – simply Tassie<br />

is a place not to be missed. Perfect for a self-drive itinerary<br />

and highlights are: Art Galleries & markets in Hobart, cruise to<br />

Bruny Island, experience the wild West Coast near Strahan by<br />

a historic train, take in a boutique distillery at Burnie, visit the<br />

Cataract Gorge near Launceston and take a chairlift across the<br />

wide river, paddle or cruise the stunning Wineglass Bay…<br />

plus much much more.<br />

WESTERN AUSTRALIA:<br />

SOUTH AUSTRALIA:<br />

QUEENSLAND:<br />

ESTUARY MATTERS<br />

Carpet factory key part of reserve’s history<br />

The Avon-<br />

Heathcote<br />

Estuary<br />

Ihutai<br />

Trust is a<br />

non-profit<br />

organisation<br />

formed to protect one<br />

of New Zealand’s most<br />

important coastal<br />

wetlands. Each week,<br />

board members will<br />

discuss matters regarding<br />

the estuary, its rich history<br />

and what makes it unique.<br />

This week Bill Simpson<br />

writes about carpet maker<br />

Nimrod Mitchell<br />

AN EARLY hero of the industry<br />

in Christchurch was Nimrod<br />

Mitchell who built a carpetmaking<br />

factory on a site which<br />

is now part of Charlesworth<br />

Wetland Reserve.<br />

He arrived in Christchurch<br />

from the United Kingdom in<br />

1879 and in 1884 opened the<br />

Zealandia Carpet Factory. He<br />

exported to other parts of the<br />

colony and also to Sydney.<br />

The Illustrated Guide to<br />

Christchurch and Neighbourhood<br />

of 1885 praised Mitchell as “the<br />

right man in the right place,” and<br />

Shop<br />

Win<br />

& Relax<br />

DESTROYED: How the Zealandia Carpet Factory looked in the 1880s.<br />

described the opening as “a red<br />

letter day truly, not only for the<br />

promoter but also for the whole<br />

colony of New Zealand.”<br />

But perhaps the carpet business<br />

was not so rosy. In 1886<br />

Mitchell was charged with<br />

burning down his own factory to<br />

defraud his insurers. A witness in<br />

the trial, George Richardson, said<br />

Congratulations to<br />

David Pearce<br />

SHOPPED AT<br />

MARSHALLS HEALTH & NATURAL THERAPY<br />

Proudly supported by<br />

Hanmer Springs<br />

he was offered £40 by Mitchell to<br />

burn the factory down.<br />

Richardson suggested kerosene<br />

and Mitchell had replied<br />

“that will do and I will give you<br />

the key of the factory.”<br />

However, Richardson later told<br />

Mitchell he would not set fire to<br />

the factory; but two weeks later<br />

the factory was burnt down and<br />

Mitchell himself was judged to<br />

be the culprit.<br />

That is not the end of the story.<br />

In August 1887, Sir Julius Vogel,<br />

who had been Premier of New<br />

Zealand and also the colonial<br />

treasurer, paid tribute to the<br />

once-destroyed but now rebuilt<br />

carpet factory.<br />

Start a new<br />

Christmas tradition<br />

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

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

10 great ideas to help make Christmas a magical time of the year<br />

1. Create a Christmas playlist with some of<br />

your favourite carols and songs – play it<br />

loud and every day, if that’s your thing.<br />

Or plan a pre-Christmas sing-along<br />

evening – don’t forget to supply the song<br />

sheet so everyone can join in too.<br />

2. Get into the spirit of Christmas by getting<br />

together with family or friends to help<br />

decorate each other’s houses – turn up<br />

the music, drink the wine and go all out<br />

to deck the halls.<br />

3. Make and send homemade Christmas<br />

cards – there’s nothing more exciting<br />

than getting mail, right? Or how about<br />

writing some generic ones and dropping<br />

them into your nearest retirement<br />

home to brighten up an elderly person’s<br />

Christmas.<br />

4. Buy your family Christmas tee-shirts or<br />

Santa hats to wear on the day and don’t<br />

forget to take a family selfie.<br />

5. Fill a shoebox with gifts for a child, wrap<br />

it with a bow, and deliver to the nearest<br />

community gift tree – check with your<br />

local library and label with age and<br />

gender.<br />

6. Have a yearly family, friends or neighbour<br />

outdoor games night with drinks and<br />

nibbles leading up to the big day – think<br />

Pétanque, hoopla, mini golf, giant chess,<br />

or croquet.<br />

7. Take a leaf out of Iceland’s traditional<br />

‘Jolabokaflod’ or Christmas Book Flood,<br />

and give a book as a gift on Christmas<br />

Eve each year – don’t forget to write<br />

inside the cover who it’s from and the<br />

date.<br />

8. Make a list of must see Christmas movies<br />

to watch a week before Christmas day<br />

and tick off the ones you’ve watched.<br />

Don’t forget the popcorn and hot<br />

chocolate or nibbles and wine.<br />

9. Make and give a handmade ornament<br />

as a gift each year – the lucky receiver’s<br />

Christmas tree will be covered with<br />

beautiful, handmade memories.<br />

10. Make homemade hot chocolate on<br />

Christmas Eve or on Christmas morning<br />

to drink while the presents are being<br />

opened – decorate with whipped cream,<br />

grated chocolate, marshmallows, or<br />

crushed candy canes.<br />

Give a Christmas<br />

gift to remember!<br />

With summer on the way there’s<br />

never been a better excuse to take<br />

a break and head to Hanmer Springs.<br />

Just 90 minutes north of Christchurch,<br />

Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa<br />

offers something for everyone - whether<br />

it’s that hard-to-buy-for friend or a well<br />

deserved treat for yourself.<br />

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas<br />

Christmas is a great time for passing down recipes that are tried and true becoming<br />

traditional family favourites. The owner of this recipe says her mum used to make<br />

the pudding on Christmas Eve and would take the bowl and wooden spoon around<br />

everyone in the house to stir the mixture and make a wish.<br />

• 1 ½ tbsp butter<br />

The next day:<br />

pot of water, just deep enough<br />

so the bowl doesn’t float.<br />

• Boil pudding for four hours and<br />

check regularly to make sure<br />

the water has boiled dry. Top<br />

up carefully with extra water if<br />

required.<br />

• Serve with heaps of Chantilly<br />
