SPIRIT: Margaret Stoddart Retirement Village resident Audrey Burton’s love of ballet hasn’t dimmed in the last 80 years

and still finds time to dance when she can. ​

AT 85-YEARS-OLD, Audrey

Burton’s love for dancing hasn’t

dimmed one bit.

Ballet has been a lifelong passion

for the Margaret Stoddart

Retirement Village resident and

she still dances whenever she

can.

Burton took part in

Ryman Healthcare’s Pioneers

Campaign earlier this year

which took adifferent tack on

expectations about retirement

life.

The campaign showed the

true spirit and dignity of residents

and her lifelong love affair

with dancing was prominently

featured.

schools

• By Bea Gooding

TWO MERIVALE residents say

their street is dangerous because

it has become a drop-off zone for

schools in the area

Claire Baker and Michael Win

presented their concerns to the

Papanui-Innes Community Board

regarding traffic and parking

issues on Andover St.

They say low visibility and

finding a park on the street due to

double-parked vehicles, cars over

driveways, driver behaviour and

traffic congestion is a problem.

They say the problem is caused

by parents stopping to drop

off children and students from

schools in the area, such as Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School on Hewitts Rd,

and Selwyn House School and St

Margaret’ College on Winchester

St, using it for parking.

“Outside our house is pandemonium.

For me to reverse out of

my driveway to go to work, I have

to inch out of my driveway with

cars book-ending either side of

my kerb,” said Baker who lives on

Andover St.

The community board

has asked the city council to

investigate.

Sports hub to be upgraded

thanks to funding boost

Post a Face Mask

to show them

you care this

Christmas.

SPORTS FACILITIES in the

city’s west will soon be upgraded

thanks to crucial funding

recently approved by the city

council.

The Sustainability and Community

Resilience committee

agreed to give a $70,000 grant to

the Upper Riccarton Sport Hub -

a joint project involving the Riccarton

Cricket Club, Riccarton

Tennis Club and the FC2011

Football Club.

It will go towards upgrading

sports facilities at Upper Riccarton

Domain.

The first stage is the relocation

of a building for clubrooms and

changing facilities to meet the

needs of all three codes.

The funding comes because

the city council is partnering

with community groups and social

agencies to support projects

that benefit the community and

to help them achieve their goals.

“By partnering with groups

and social agencies who are

working in our communities,

we can support them to achieve

their goals and also realise our

own goal of creating strong,

connected communities,” said

councillor Sara Templeton, committee

chairwoman.

The city council is also supporting

the redevelopment of the

City Mission site as part of their

collaboration with groups.

The two projects have been

given funding through the city

council’s Capital Endowment

Fund as they will benefit local

communities, both now and in

the future.

“The $155,000 grant to the

City Mission will go towards the

timely redevelopment of its busy

central Hereford St site – home

to the foodbank, transitional

housing and the learning hub,”

Cr Templeton said.

“With a purpose-built site,

the City Mission aims to guide

people from the food bank and

emergency accommodation

towards their own housing, jobs

and self-sufficiency, establishing

a sustainable change in community

welfare.”

Te Ora Hou Ōtautahi, an organisation

that focuses on youth

well-being, has received $150,000

to support the construction of a

contemporary whare or meeting

place in Papanui.

“By helping the most vulnerable

in our society, we can

make the city a better place for

everyone,” said councillor Sara

Templeton, chairwoman of the

sustainability and community

BENEFIT: A new

Maori youth whare

will soon be

established at Te

resilience committee.

“The aim of the new whare

will be to help reconnect young

people and whānau to their

tūrangawaewae (a place to stand)

where they can be empowered.”

A $40,000 grant to Conductive

Education Canterbury has also

been approved. It will help fund

a new home where young people

with disabilities can learn to live

more independently before moving

into the community.

Grants from the Capital

Endowment Fund – set up by

the city council in 2001 – was

established using a share of the

proceeds from the sale of Orion’s

investment in a gas company.

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

Increased traffic

contributes

to concerns

•From page 1

“If I hit anyone or anything it

would be my fault because I am

reversing. I have to be in the middle

of the road to see if anything

is coming.”

The issues generally rose during

the hours between 8am and 4pm.

Restrictions on Andover St only

allowed parking for two hours at

a time.

Baker would often have to park

on the street rather than her

driveway to make it easier to leave

home.

But this often resulted in parking

tickets, particularly when she

had no other place to put her car.

“I have got dozens of parking

tickets outside my house because

of the two-hour parking restriction.

The other side of the road

where there is no restriction is full

by 7.30am to 5.30pm with school

girl cars,” she said.

Win has lived on Andover St for

more than 28 years and said during

this time, traffic has increased

dramatically, which has contributed

to his concerns.

Baker and Win propose solutions,

such barring student access

from Andover St to schools,

active street monitoring, having

resident-only parking permits,

and registering student drivers at

each school.

Light show organisers

receive awards

• By Bea Gooding

SOME MAY assume the force of

a Jedi in the Star Wars universe

brought Luke Murphy and Leia

Austin together.

But in fact, it was a passion

for online gaming and a love of

putting together one of the best

Christmas light displays in the

city.

Over the last 15 years, they

have been renowned for illuminating

the Hornby community

with their “Not Enough Lights”

show, boasting more than

250,000 LED lights at their home

Their dedication to providing

free Christmas joy to more than

1000 people each year was why

they were one of the recipients of

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Service Awards.

“No one’s really given out

awards for Christmas lights that

I’m aware of so it’s nice someone

has recognised it and that they

enjoy it,” said Murphy.

Murphy blamed his parents

for the obsession, which he said

stemmed from childhood.

“They were the ones that put

a few strings of lights up on the

house when I was younger. I

would always beg them to put

them up earlier and earlier as I

had no sense of time back then

when I was really young,” he

said.

“Ever since then I’ve just taken

over, and now it’s something I

do.”

Setting up begins in September,

with majority of the heavy

lifting completed by mid-October.

The show is now on display

until the end of the year.

Murphy is on the cusp of becoming

an electrician which he

said worked to his advantage.

He was unable to put a price

on the “very expensive hobby,”

which was self-funded, but the

use of solar power helped offset

some of the cost.

“Overall [cost] for the whole

thing, I don’t actually know . . .

$10,000? Maybe a bit more than

that,” he said.

The couple had plans in the

future to build a house purposebuilt

for the light displays.

Said Murphy: “I wouldn’t say

I’m into Christmas, though, I

just like putting up the lights

because it looks amazing. People

don’t believe me when I say

that.”

•Not Enough Lights show

is on every night at 8

RECOGNISING OUR COMMUNITY HEROES

• From page 5

William always has a smile

on his face and enjoys seeing

the weekly visitors to the club.

Housie members appreciate the

hospitality that William and the

team provide. Each week older

members of the community

especially enjoy the fellowship of

getting together to play housie.

The rugby club appreciates

and values the longstanding

commitment William has

provided over the years. His

valued service has greatly

benefitted the club and the wider

Hornby community.

Lynlea and

Robert

Willan – Lynlea

and Robert’s

dedication

and passion

for netball is

well known

and appreciated in the Hornby

community.

Lynlea founded the Hornby

Netball Club in 2009, which

focuses on encouragement and

participation. The amount of

time and effort they have given,

from mending bibs and bags to

coaching and managing teams, is

immeasurable. Lynlea holds the

roles of senior A team manager

and committee president and

during the season Robert is at

the netball courts every Saturday,

supporting both Lynlea and the

club.

Lynlea and Robert were also

involved in the Save Denton Park

project. This group of dedicated

local residents were successful

in lobbying that Denton Park

remain for outdoor recreation

and sport only.

The amount of people

that Lynlea and Robert have

supported or influenced over the

last twelve years is vast. Hornby

is much richer for their service,

not only to netball but the wider

community.

William Thorne – William

and Chris Thorne’s property

borders West Broken Run in

Wigram, a reserve on the upper

banks of the Ōpāwaho Heathcote

River.

Over the last five years William

has continually mown, trimmed

and generally maintained the

reserve single-handedly, using

his own time, equipment and

resources.

He has incredible dedication

and often spent the best part of

his week, mowing the 4ha reserve

with a push mower.

Since contractors began

mowing the flat area three years

ago, William has continued

mowing the bank area of the

reserve. Not even the theft of his

push mower last year deterred

him, as he promptly purchased

another mower to continue his

service at the reserve.

It is vital that communities

have volunteers like William

who are committed and reliable.

William is industrious, kindhearted

and a highly valued

member of the community.

IMPACT: Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board

chairman Mike Mora (left) and member Jimmy Chen, with

Nola Moffett who, along with her twin sister, the late Nova

Mayo, were honoured for their long-standing dedication to

activities in Hornby.

Nola Moffett and the late

Nova Mayo

Twin sisters Nola and the late

Nova have had a longstanding

involvement in the community

which began at age 14, when

they assisted in organising the

Paparua Plunket Barn Dance.

Since this time they were

involved in countless community

projects, events and groups such

as the Hei Hei Kindergarten

committee, the Branston

Intermediate PTA, Hornby

Primary PTA , and the Hornby

Inner Wheel Club to name a few.

As an active member of

Islington Methodist Church,

Nola has provided baking for

countless church fairs in the

area and currently bakes once a

month for Age Concern.

Both Nola and Nova were huge

advocates for a high school to be

built in Hornby, with Hornby

High School opening in 1975.

In the early years of the school

they were both involved in

many of its aspects, in particular

the PTA. Nova took over the

running of the school tuck shop

for many years and enjoyed

the interaction with students

immensely.

She remained connected with

the school and was present for

the official opening of the first of

the new buildings last year.

Nova was widely known

around the school and in the

community as Hornby High

School’s No 1 supporter.

In recognition of their

service on various community

fundraising initiatives and

committees, Nola and Nova

received a suffrage award, and

Paul Harris Fellowship Medals

from Rotary International.

For their outstanding

community service, they also

received a New Zealand 1990

Commemoration Medal for

Services to New Zealand from

the Queen.

Many have benefitted from

Nola and the late Nova’s

thoughtful and generous nature,

which is highlighted through

over fifty years of community

service.

Their dedication in supporting

others and the betterment of the

community is remarkable, and

truly worthy of recognition.

Gayle Cook – Gayle first

registered as a tag spotter

volunteer with the city council’s

Off the Wall programme in

2013.

Since this time she has been

one of the programmes most

active volunteers, providing

administrative support, advice,

and reported countless acts of

graffiti vandalism incidents.

• From page 7

To ensure that graffiti

vandalism is removed within a

timely manner, Gayle has also

taken the time, on numerous

occasions, to contact the

contact centre when follow up

graffiti removal work is deemed

necessary.

Tag spotters like Gayle

contribute to the successful

outcomes of the Graffiti

Programme and together support

its goal of reducing the impact of

graffiti vandalism. The Graffiti

Programme could not do its

work without its amazing team

of volunteers and appreciates

Gayle’s continuing service in the

community.

Cathi Andrell – Cathi has

assisted the Riccarton West

Community Garden for six years

her friendly banter. Cathi

bags produce for numerous

households with Food Together

Riccarton and following this task,

helps the community cafe by

operating the coffee machine for

the rest of the session.

You can often find Cathi

supporting community

events such as the Riccarton

Community Day and Connect.

She also joins the Riccarton

Community Development

Worker, visiting new people to

the area. Cathi was a founding

member of the Riccarton

Neighbourhood Support Group

and is also a part of a team that

folds the Riccarton Community

Newsletter. For three years

Cathi assisted the Riccarton

Community Church’s Mainly

Music sessions, serving morning

tea to children and their parents.

Cathi leads by example as she

constantly gives her time and

energy for the good of others.

She is greatly appreciated by the

Riccarton community.

LEADER: Rachael Clemett

with Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board

member Mark Peters.

Rachael Clemett – Rachael is

a passionate and valued member

of the St John Hornby Youth

Division. Joining the division

seven years ago, Rachael was a

parent helper with the Penguins

Programme, and soon became a

penguin leader.

Over the years Rachael has

progressed to the voluntary role

of assistant divisional manager,

spending many hours providing

direction and support to youth

leaders and members.

Rachael is passionate about

ensuring the smooth running

of the programme, and

provides clear leadership and

communication. She enjoys the

division camps and can always

be found in the kitchen, cooking

and organising meals.

Camps on Mother’s Day

weekend are a special event, as

her family are in attendance

and are also involved with camp

activities.

As a way to build

connections between parents,

Rachael started a parent support

group at Hornby Primary School

in 2012.

She also assisted the school’s

lunch club since it was established

in 2015 until late last year.

Rachael is an amazing person

in the community who would do

anything for others.

She is always willing to help

those in need and does valuable

work behind the scenes.

The St John Hornby Division

greatly appreciate and highly

commend Rachael for her

ongoing and valued service to the

community.

‘I started dancing

when I was four’

• From page 1

Burton still remembered the

first time she saw the Royal New

Zealand Ballet perform and has

closely followed the artistic directors

over the years.

“I started dancing when I was

four and haven’t really stopped

since then,” she said.

“It’s [ballet] just been a part

of my life. The biggest change

in the company over the years

has been the technique of the

dancers. The difficulty just keeps

going up and it’s a much larger

company now.”

Burton and her daughter, Wendy,

had the opportunity to watch

RNZB’s Christmas performance

of The Sleeping Beauty this year at

the Isaac Theatre Royal.

Not only did the pair attend the

opening performance, but they

were also invited as

special guests of the RNZB for a

backstage tour as Burton is planning

a ballet performance at the

village early next year.

She will also be designing all of

the costumes herself next year at

the village showcase.

Touring wardrobe master

Alison Roigard showed Burton

and her the intricacies of

preparing for a show, how the

costumes were sorted and how

it works behind the scenes at the

PERFORMERS: Audrey

Burton with ballet dancer

Madeleine Graham, of the

Royal New Zealand Ballet.

RNZB. “We have roughly

330 costumes, but for this

show, we only have two quick

changes which is tricky,” said

Roigard.

However, the day did not

end there. The mother and

daughter also got to meet dancer

Madeleine Graham.

They exchanged stories of their

dancing and performances and

Graham shared back-stage titbits

and tales, and even gave her a

signed pair of pointe shoes.

Although Audrey has never

danced in The Sleeping Beauty

she did perform once in The

Nutcracker.

“I so much wanted to be the

Sugar Plum Fairy but I’m short,

so I ended up dancing Clara,”

said Burton.

Harbour cruise with a difference for pupils

TWO GROUPS of year 8 pupils

from Wharenui School spent the

day tacking and gybing on the

Fox II around Lyttelton Harbour

recently.

THe three-hour trips were

sponsored by Cansail Charitable

Trust, an organisation dedicated

to the personal development

of children and young adults

through the challenge of crewing

a small ship.

Students took turns steering,

rigging, hoisting the sails and

other jobs on the Akaroa-based

rigged ketch, while the other

group played basketball and

other activities at the Margaret

Mahy Playground.

Highlight for both groups

were seeing the hector’s dolphins

who came over to say hello.

The excited Year 8 Wharenui School crew of the Fox II get

ready to head out.

Game to test your bin waste knowledge

PEOPLE ARE being invited to

play an interactive online game

that will test their knowledge

of what items belong in the red,

yellow and green wheelie bins.

The game, which people can

play on their smartphones and

online has been developed by city

council staff and is the latest tool

in the ongoing campaign to help

people bin good.

The game requires players to

drag selected items into either the

red, green or yellow bin.If they

put the item in the right bin, they

earn points. If they put the item in

the wrong bin, the bin shakes and

they get an X on the scoreboard.

The correct bin will light up.

The items used in the game

were selected because they are

ones that people often get confused

about and put in the wrong

bin.

Said council resource recovery

manager Ross Trotter. “The

success of our kerbside rubbish

and recycling service depends on

people putting the right stuff in

the right bin. This new game is

a fun, interactive way of teaching

people about what bin they

should use for different items.

“The contents of the green

wheelie bin get processed and

turned into compost. That cannot

happen if there is too much nonorganic

material in the bin. Likewise,

the contents of the yellow

wheelie bin cannot be recycled if

non-recyclable items are included.

“Our goal is to minimise the

amount of waste going to landfill

so that’s why we need people to

put the right stuff in the right bin.

“If you are confused about what

goes in each of the bins, give the

game a try. I also recommend that

you use our updated wheelie bin

app. It has a great search function

which you can use if you

are uncertain about which bin a

particular items belongs in. All

you have to do is enter the name

of the item you want to dispose

of and it will tell you which bin to

put it in.’’

•Play the game at ccc.govt.

nz/bingoodgame or at

smartview.ccc.govt.nz

CHALLENGE: City council

staff have launched an

interactive online game

for people to test their

knowledge of what items

belong in wheelie bins.

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

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

• 1 ½ tsp baking soda

• 1 ½ cups of boiling water

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

• Serve with heaps of Chantilly

cream!

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.

Deck the halls

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a decoration or two around the home.

Whether its outdoor lights with a waving Santa or

just draping tinsel across your mantelpiece, there are

many ways to celebrate the festive season in your home.

Go natural

Driftwood painted white with LED lights wrapped

around, or pine cones with a touch of silver spray

paint, make beautiful natural additions to the home

at this time of year. If you have a tree branch around

the home, why not cut it up into discs and spray paint

white stars and reindeer on the disc. Drill a hole in the

top and thread some gardeners string through the hole

and you have an instant decoration to hang on the tree

or somewhere around the home. Cover polystyrene

balls in ripped linen, hessian and cotton strips. These

can either be hung up or a number placed in a bowl on

the table.

Tinsel town

Many love the glitter and sparkle that tinsel brings

but how about using it in different ways. A threetiered

cake plate with tinsel laid on each plate with

baubles then placed on top, can look really impressive

as a centrepiece for the table. Make your own wreath

by wrapping tinsel around and around a polystyrene

circle. Hang just as it is, or hot glue gun baubles on to

create extra wow.

Table setting

Sometimes the simplest decorations on the table

can look the most stunning. A beautiful napkin rolled

up with a piece of red and white ribbon, or rosemary

wreath looks amazing. Why not place a hessian runner

down the middle of the table and add greenery and

candles in jars on top to create a wonderful centrepiece.

If you have a children’s eating table, why not put a

long piece of brown paper as a table cloth. Draw large

circles where the plates can go and write Christmas

questions beside each plate outline. A little bottle with

a red and white paper straw is great too. Put a jar of

red and green crayons on the table. When the kids are

finished their dinner, they can play noughts and crosses

or hangman or just draw pictures.

If you’re looking for ideas why not check out

Pinterest. Here you will find every style and every

technique to make sure your home looks like a

Christmas wonderland this festive season.
