Leaving school behind<br />

at the ripe old age of 87<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

AFTER MORE than 71 years in<br />

the workforce, Fred Adams has<br />

only worked two jobs.<br />

But the final chapter of his<br />

most rewarding venture yet<br />

draws to a close today as the<br />

87-year-old caretaker hangs up his<br />

tools for the last time after three<br />

decades.<br />

Described as a “best friend” to<br />

many pupils and staff alike, his<br />

warm presence at Paparoa Street<br />

School each day will be missed,<br />

leaving big boots to fill for whoever<br />

takes his place.<br />

“I get a lot of enjoyment [in]<br />

meeting the children in the morning,”<br />

he said.<br />

“The children seem to be feeling<br />

sad; in a way, I am too. But I’m<br />

87 – age is catching up with me,<br />

so I might as well go out and enjoy<br />

things a bit more.”<br />

Although he could not pinpoint<br />

the reasoning behind his<br />

long-standing tenure, being able<br />

to brighten up a child’s day by<br />

acknowledging them even with<br />

a simple conversation was what<br />

kept him going.<br />

He recalled when a pupil was<br />

asked by another if Fred was a<br />

good friend. Initially, she said no.<br />

Orphanage life shapes ‘caring’ volunteer<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

EVEN THOUGH Lesley O’Neill<br />

grew up without her parents, she<br />

never once felt like she had no<br />

family to turn to.<br />

With an absent father, and<br />

after her mother died of an<br />

illness, life changed forever<br />

at three-years-old when the<br />

Nazareth House orphanage<br />

in Sydenham became her new<br />

home.<br />

But having the sisters and<br />

other children by her side for the<br />

next 14 years it felt like growing<br />

up in a big family.<br />

“It was a home and there<br />

were a lot of other people. Like<br />

any upbringing, there’s always<br />

positives and negatives – but the<br />

positives totally outweighed the<br />

negatives,” she said.<br />

“I guess what happened<br />

was I had an experience that a<br />

lot of people have never had. The<br />

skills that I have now are part<br />

of the nurturing I received as a<br />

child.”<br />

Learning the value of hard<br />

work and giving back from a<br />

young age was what fuelled<br />

her drive these days to volunteer<br />

at the Christchurch South Fruit<br />

and Vegetable Collective, helping<br />

out with setting up the hall and<br />

bags in time for the delivery<br />

trucks.<br />

Her tenacity in the last six years<br />

was why she was nominated as a<br />

recipient of a Community Service<br />

Award this year.<br />

Some of the jobs she had<br />

growing up was answering the<br />

phone or opening the door to<br />

visitors. But one of the biggest<br />

lessons she took away from it all<br />

was the determination the sisters<br />

showed when it came to keeping<br />

the children alive.<br />

“THe sisters used to go out<br />

into the community, begging for<br />

money and food to keep us all<br />

alive. They would come home,<br />

they were exhausted; their shoes<br />

all worn out,” said O’Neill.<br />

“THat taught me about caring<br />

for other people.”<br />

ESSENTIAL:<br />

Volunteer<br />

Leslie O’Neill<br />

and Richard<br />

Clemance were<br />

both recipients<br />

of a Community<br />

Service Award.<br />

PHOTO (left):<br />

GEOFF SLOAN<br />

THe fruit and vegetable collective<br />

processes about 200 orders of<br />

fresh produce each week and are<br />

distributed to eight community<br />

hubs, which is then delivered to<br />

homes across the city – many of<br />

which are on low incomes.<br />

“I’m not looking for a reward<br />

for my work, it’s about what I can<br />

do to support others. Fruit and<br />

vegetables are the food that keeps<br />

people alive,” she said.<br />

O’Neill was not the only one<br />

recognised from the collective.<br />

It was a “big surprise” and<br />

a “humbling” feeling when<br />

Richard Clemance found out he<br />

was also a recipient of the service<br />

award.<br />

For the past six years, he has<br />

helped set up and pack down<br />

the premises, supervised the<br />

unloading and packing process,<br />

and setting up the packing line<br />

for the 20 volunteers.<br />

THe collective purchases<br />

produce from wholesalers<br />

and supermarkets and are<br />

available to the public to buy<br />

in bags, providing a more<br />

affordable option for homes to<br />

get their 5+ A Day.<br />

THe delivery service also<br />

helped people who could not<br />

easily leave their homes, such as<br />

elderly people.<br />

“It gets me out of the house<br />

and it helps a lot of people. It’s<br />

also a good social time, there’s<br />

a good bunch of people [at the<br />

collective],” he said.<br />

He believed others should give<br />

it a go.<br />

“It doesn’t matter how much<br />

or how little it is, every little bit<br />

helps,” Clemance said.<br />

“I try my best; someone’s got<br />

to do it.”<br />

Thursday <strong>December</strong> <strong>17</strong> <strong>2020</strong> 5<br />

Initiative set up to get<br />

more children playing sport<br />

A BELFAST-BASED community<br />

collective has teamed up with<br />

major sports organisations in<br />

the city to tackle the obstacle of<br />

keeping kids active.<br />

The Kia Kori Waitaha – Being<br />

Active Locally initiative is a<br />

collaboration between North<br />

West Collective and Canterbury<br />

Hockey, Canterbury Cricket,<br />

Squash Canterbury, and Touch<br />

Canterbury, in a bid to get more<br />

children participating in sport.<br />

Activators will visit<br />

community trusts and entities<br />

who already work with youth<br />

to deliver fun programmes,<br />

with new activities outside of<br />

traditional sport and recreation.<br />

Emma Hodgkin, of<br />

Canterbury Hockey, said the<br />

sports were prepared to innovate<br />

and enter into new collaborative<br />

partnerships in order to better<br />

meet the needs of communities.<br />

“It’s about us recognising,<br />

that as the organisations<br />

governing our individual sports<br />

in our region, that we have an<br />

obligation past delivering formal<br />

competitions – to provide<br />

opportunities for all young<br />

FOCUS: Canterbury Hockey’s Emma Hodgkin is tackling<br />

the obstacles that prevent children playing sport.<br />

people to keep active,” she said.<br />

A number of barriers often<br />

held some children back<br />

from engaging in sport more,<br />

including location, financial<br />

issues, or lack of awareness.<br />

The initiative aims to<br />

break down some of those<br />

barriers with more focus on<br />

participation, and running<br />

activities that increased physical<br />

activity in children – something<br />

that has been an issue in recent<br />

years.<br />

Activities could be anything<br />

from a game of touch rugby and<br />

jumping on high jump mats, to<br />

climbing a wall or striking a<br />

ball.<br />

Established in 2013, the<br />

collective comprises of nine<br />

community groups who work<br />

together to deliver services<br />

and programmes to people in<br />

the city’s northwest, including<br />

the Belfast Community<br />

Network.<br />

Said general manager Lynda<br />

Goodrick: “The opportunity to<br />

collaborate even more and with<br />

a different sector to support our<br />

grass roots community work,<br />

really just made sense. We see<br />

every day the need to get our<br />

tamariki back out playing and<br />

more importantly encouraging<br />

mums and dads to get involved<br />

as well.<br />

“We bring our experience<br />

of different groups working<br />

together to this great initiative”<br />

In Brief<br />

RESTRICTIONS APPROVED<br />

Parking and stopping restrictions<br />

near Roydvale School has been<br />

approved by the Fendalton-<br />

Waimairi-Harewood Community<br />

Board. This includes installing<br />

3min parking restrictions on<br />

Roydvale Ave and no-stopping<br />

restrictions at the Teesdale St<br />

and Deepdale St intersection.<br />

The approval comes following<br />

requests from the school to relieve<br />

parking and traffic congestion,<br />

improve road visibility, along<br />

with pedestrian safety issues near<br />

the school drop-off area. The road<br />

currently carries around 9400<br />

vehicles per day, with peak flows<br />

of about 800 vehicles an hour<br />

during the morning, and 670 per<br />

hour, during the afternoon. In<br />

the last five years, there have been<br />

five reported crashes near the<br />

intersection.<br />

FLOOD RISK WORK<br />

Work to widen St Albans Creek<br />

will start early next month. The<br />

widening is taking place between<br />

Hills Rd and Slaters St as part<br />

of the Dudley Creek Flood<br />

Remediation Project to return the<br />

St Albans area to pre-earthquake<br />

flood risk levels. Traffic<br />

management will be operating up<br />

to twice a week at off-peak times.<br />

The work will start on January 7,<br />

and is expected to be completed<br />

by May or June next year.<br />

Attending Saturday’s community<br />

opening of the Northern Corridor<br />

conclusion to our fight for this<br />

project to go ahead to relieve<br />

congestion in our residential<br />

By opening up traffic corridors to<br />

direct vehicles away from houses<br />

making our residents and their<br />

thrilled to attend our celebrations.<br />

It’s that wonderful time of the<br />

year again when Canterbury lights<br />

up for Christmas. As we look back<br />

over the year and the pressures put<br />

on us by Covid-19, we can still<br />

count our blessings for being able<br />

to call this corner of the world<br />

home. I’m proud of our businesses<br />

that have kept local residents in<br />

jobs, of our community for getting<br />

behind our businesses, and I’m<br />

proud of our community<br />

organisations who are helping our<br />

communities to recover.<br />

It’s been a full year, indeed, and I’m<br />

looking forward to enjoying time<br />

with my family. I’ve always been in<br />

favour of a summer staycation and,<br />

as we continue our fight against the<br />

pandemic, my family and I will<br />

again be celebrating some of the<br />

exceptional recreational spaces on<br />

our doorstep.

Fred Adams with the Super Rugby Trophy, and in his army uniform in 1952<br />

as part of his compulsory military training.<br />

‘You meet some wonderful<br />

• From page 1<br />

“I thought, oh no, what’s<br />

coming next? But then she<br />

said ‘no, he’s my very best<br />

friend,’” said Fred.<br />

“You meet some wonderful<br />

children on the way<br />

which keeps you going. It<br />

brightens them up in the<br />

morning, and it brightens<br />

us elderly people too.<br />

“It’s rewarding to be<br />

acknowledged by the<br />

children. It’s important to<br />

connect with them – it is a<br />

school after all, that’s what<br />

we’re there for.”<br />

Fred played a crucial role<br />

in making sure the school’s<br />

facilities were up to scratch<br />

ahead of the learning day.<br />

At nearly 90-years-old, he<br />

would work four hours<br />

each day; two in the morning<br />

and two in the evening.<br />

The pupils saw him in the<br />

morning just as he was finishing<br />

his morning duties<br />

before 9am and were often<br />

eager for a chat.<br />

A usual lap around the<br />

school involves checking<br />

each classroom and can<br />

take upwards of about 40<br />

minutes. It was a chance<br />

to sneak in some exercise<br />

– an aspect of the job he<br />

considered to be one of his<br />

favourites.<br />

In this time he ensures<br />

the heaters are switched on,<br />

the printers have paper, the<br />

wheelie bins are emptied,<br />

or to check “whether the<br />

cleaners have done a good<br />

job overnight.”<br />

At night, he is in charge<br />

of making sure the windows<br />

and doors are locked<br />

while keeping an eye on the<br />

school hall area.<br />

Fred has been a friendly<br />

face at the school since<br />

1990. It was only his second<br />

job ever, having worked at<br />

a number of post offices<br />

in the South Island for 40<br />

years prior.<br />

Born in 1933, he hails<br />

from Arrowtown, Central<br />

Otago, where he grew up<br />

with his parents and four<br />

siblings.<br />

His father was the last<br />

official town baker from the<br />

“olden days,” and his original<br />

oven was now incorporated<br />

at the Lakes District<br />

Museum and Gallery.<br />

For Fred, life was not<br />

always rosy in the pictureperfect<br />

town. Part of his<br />

childhood was during a<br />

time when the world was<br />

engulfed in war.<br />

His neighbour, along<br />

with his cousin, Bobby<br />

Jones, were both killed in<br />

Italy, when a stray shell<br />

landed and exploded where<br />

they were.<br />

“I was born in the Granny<br />

Jones’ Cottage. During<br />

my time I used to go out<br />

chasing rabbits on hills at<br />

some of the farms where<br />

there were rabbit holes, so<br />

I would put my ferrets in<br />

[them],” said Fred.<br />

“We never had a lot, so it<br />

was quite a struggle in the<br />

early days.”<br />

Soon after leaving high<br />

school in Queenstown at<br />

15-years-old, he secured<br />

a job at the post office in<br />

Arrowtown working at the<br />

counter and the telephone<br />

exchange.<br />

Wanting to further his<br />

skills in the field, he went to<br />

morse school in Trentham,<br />

Upper Hutt, a year and a<br />

half after he started his first<br />

job.<br />

Soon after that he was<br />

also called up for compulsory<br />

military training.<br />

CELEBRATIONS: Fred and his wife, Pearl, on their 60th wedding<br />

anniversary.<br />

children on the way’<br />

Fred Adams skiing at<br />

Coronet Peak in the<br />

late 1940s.<br />

“I used to love the morse,<br />

it’s like another music<br />

system. I was 16-years-old<br />

at the time I went to morse<br />

school, where we had to<br />

do 10 words a minute. I<br />

was fourth in my class,” he<br />

said.<br />

His big break finally<br />

came in 1965 when he was<br />

appointed as postmaster<br />

of the Beckenham post<br />

office following a move to<br />

Christchurch.<br />

Over the years he also<br />

served at offices in St Albans<br />

and Papanui before he<br />

officially left the industry<br />

in 1987, when the country’s<br />

postal services were overhauled<br />

and restructured<br />

following financial difficulties.<br />

After a long overseas<br />

holiday with his wife and<br />

children, he got back in<br />

the game and eventually<br />

took up the role of Paparoa<br />

Street’s caretaker after<br />

it was advertised in the<br />

newspaper.<br />

“A lot has changed over<br />

the years – like we used to<br />

use a hand mower, but now<br />

they use ride-ons. We used<br />

to do the cleaning too before<br />

it went to contractors,”<br />

he said.<br />

“The school has also<br />

grown – there was 300<br />

when I started, and it got<br />

up to about 600.”<br />

Fred fell in love with<br />

the postmaster’s daughter,<br />

Pearl, while working at<br />

the office in Hanmer<br />

Springs, and eventually<br />

married in 1957. The couple<br />

share three children<br />

together.<br />

His close friendship with<br />

the postmaster prevented<br />

any hostility between the<br />

pair in spite of the marriage<br />

to his daughter.<br />

Another joy in his life<br />

stems from his life-long<br />

passion of rugby.<br />

“I’ve always loved rugby,<br />

I played at Balfour Rugby<br />

Club in Southland – I even<br />

played a match against<br />

Robin Archer, who was an<br />

All Black.”<br />

Although Fred did<br />

not have any big plans<br />

for his retirement, he was<br />

already sure of at least one<br />

thing.<br />

“I won’t be doing any<br />

more work that’s for sure. I<br />

plan to do plenty of walking<br />

around the blocks here<br />

and try to keep and as fit as<br />

I can.”<br />

Beautiful design.<br />

Brilliant functionality.<br />

And really, really easy to wrap.<br />

There’s a lot to like about this tablet. It’s lightweight and compact, with a bright and<br />

Believe the<br />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

unbelievable<br />

CCP lies, people die.<br />

The tragedies have been<br />

happening in China for<br />

decades; now seem to be<br />

happening worldwide.<br />

Why didn’t we stop this<br />

from happening? Why<br />

did they have the chance<br />

to lie?<br />

20 years ago, the large<br />

scale state-run organ<br />

harvesting towards<br />

Falun Gong practitioners<br />

started. The perpetrators<br />

are officials of the<br />

Chinese Communist<br />

Party (CCP), acting in<br />

cahoots with surgeons,<br />

prison authorities,<br />

and military officials.<br />

Victims are held in<br />

concentrations camps<br />

prior to dissection,<br />

after which the bodies’<br />

remains are immediately<br />

cremated. The story,<br />

almost too dreadful to<br />

believe, was first revealed<br />

in March 2006, when a<br />

woman stated as many<br />

as 4,000 Falun Gong<br />

had been killed for their<br />

organs at the hospital in<br />

which she had worked.<br />

The China Tribunal,<br />

chaired by Sir Geoffrey<br />

Nice, QC, delivered their<br />

final judgment on <strong>17</strong>th<br />

June 2019, Commission<br />

of Crimes Against<br />

Humanity against Falun<br />

Gong and Uyghurs has<br />

been proved beyond<br />

reasonable doubt. Till<br />

today no one knows<br />

exactly how many were<br />

killed. But the crime<br />

has extended to more<br />

and more prisoners of<br />

conscience.<br />

“The only thing<br />

required for the triumph<br />

of evil is for good men to<br />

do nothing.” By sharing<br />

these unbelievable truths<br />

we wish more people<br />

could awaken and be<br />

alert to the nature of<br />

CCP. We need your voice<br />

POPULAR: The New Brighton hot pools are close to reaching its 75,000 annual visitor<br />

target, in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic.<br />

Visitor numbers heating up at hot pools<br />

MORE THAN 60,000 people have<br />

poured into the New Brighton<br />

beachside hot pools complex since<br />

it opened six months ago.<br />

He Puna Taimoana manager<br />

Merryn Skipper (left) said it has<br />

been “great to see this longawaited<br />

community facility<br />

being so well-supported.”<br />

“Our visitors are enjoying relaxation<br />

on repeat and rediscovering<br />

New Brighton,” she said.<br />

“Amazingly, we are very<br />

close to our 75,000 annual<br />

visitor numbers goal, despite<br />

the Covid-19 pandemic keeping<br />

international tourists away.<br />

“Seventy-eight per cent of<br />

our ticket sales are from the<br />

wider Christchurch area, with a<br />

further 13 per cent living in New<br />

Brighton.”<br />

She said five per cent of visitors<br />

to the pools on Marine Pde<br />

were from the South Island,<br />

while three per cent were from<br />

the North Island and one per<br />

cent of pool-users were international<br />

visitors.<br />

Skipper has been receiving<br />

positive feedback on the pools.<br />

“An overall online review rating<br />

of 4.9 out of 5 – making us<br />

the highest-rated hot pools in<br />

New Zealand – is a great reflection<br />

our popularity.<br />

“Sessions are extremely popular,<br />

particularly at the weekends<br />

and in the evenings. We recommend<br />

online bookings to secure<br />

a spot.”<br />

She said the number of people<br />

at each session is still limited so<br />

the pools are not overcrowded.<br />

The complex is open from<br />

10am to 7.30pm every day. There<br />

are five pools, ranging from<br />

28- 39 deg C, plus an on-site<br />

cafe and sauna. Christchurch<br />

residents also get discounted<br />

admission when booking their<br />

visit online.

Former Kate Sheppard home open for visits<br />

THE PUBLIC can now visit<br />

the former Fendalton home<br />

of suffragist Kate Sheppard,<br />

who was at the centre of the<br />

campaign to get New Zealand<br />

women the right to vote.<br />

The Clyde Rd home was<br />

bought by the Government last<br />

year for $4.5 million so that it<br />

could be used as a heritage venue<br />

and educational centre where<br />

people could learn about trailblazing<br />

Kiwi women.<br />

It dates back to 1888 and was<br />

used as the base for Kate Sheppard’s<br />

suffrage campaign.<br />

This week Prime Minister<br />

Jacinda Ardern formally opened<br />

Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard<br />

House,<br />

which will be managed by<br />

Heritage New Zealand Pouhere<br />

Taonga.<br />

The opening ceremony marks<br />

the completion of the first stage<br />

of repurposing the house as a<br />

visitor experience, which tells<br />

the story of the achievements of<br />

Kate Sheppard and other women<br />

who worked tirelessly to achieve<br />

women’s suffrage.<br />

“This was the place where Kate<br />

Sheppard and other suffragists<br />

wrote pamphlets, prepared<br />

speeches, collected petition<br />

signatures, and worked towards<br />

New Zealand becoming the first<br />

self-governing country in the<br />

world where women won the<br />

right to vote in 1893,” Dr Christine<br />

Whybrew, Heritage New<br />

Zealand Southern heritage assets<br />

manager said.<br />

“It was here that the petition<br />

– which included thousands of<br />

signatures from supporters all<br />

over the country – was pasted<br />

together before being presented<br />

to Parliament.”<br />

Unable to deliver the petition<br />

herself, MP Sir John Hall did<br />

it in Kate Sheppard’s place,<br />

famously kicking the 270mlong<br />

scroll across the floor of<br />

Parliament’s debating chamber,<br />

allowing all present to see the<br />

signatures for themselves as the<br />

scroll unrolled.<br />

“Because New Zealand was the<br />

first country to give women the<br />

Event raises $8000 in spite of cancellation<br />

A WOMEN’S club has raised<br />

more than $8000 towards<br />

crucial research for children<br />

with bowel disease, in spite of<br />

the cancellation of their major<br />

fundraising event.<br />

The Inner Wheel Club of<br />

Riccarton was meant to host a<br />

charitable fashion parade this<br />

year, but it was cancelled twice<br />

due to Covid-19 public gathering<br />

restrictions.<br />

But they were still able to<br />

present $8300 to Cure Kids as<br />

the majority of ticket holders<br />

still decided to donate the price<br />

of their ticket anyway.<br />

Cure Kids, best known for<br />

Red Nose Day, is the country’s<br />

largest funder of child health<br />

research.<br />

The proceeds will enable the<br />

charity to take on an intern<br />

over the summer, who will be<br />

researching the safety, feasibility<br />

and satisfaction of long-distance<br />

out-patient consultations<br />

for children with inflammatory<br />

bowel disease.<br />

“We heard a mother say<br />

how not a day goes by when<br />

she doesn’t wish for a cure for<br />

gastrointestinal failure. That<br />

rang a bell with us all,” said<br />

Bobbity Murfitt, of the Inner<br />

Wheel Club.<br />

“So the idea of hosting a<br />

fashion showcase was born. We<br />

wanted to give love, time and<br />

fundraising to the amazing<br />

hands-on work and research of<br />

Cure Kids.”<br />

The Riccarton club is part of<br />

Inner Wheel – an international<br />

Womens’ Service Club, who<br />

aim to foster true friendship,<br />

service to others, and the<br />

promotion of international<br />

understanding.<br />

The showcase was meant to<br />

feature “models” sporting the<br />

latest fashion for both men and<br />

women from Maxwell Fashion,<br />

based in Halswell.<br />

Originally, it was to be held<br />

in April at Riccarton Park but<br />

was rescheduled to August 12<br />

following the Covid-19 level 4<br />

lockdown.<br />

“But on the evening of<br />

August 11, the Covid-19 level<br />

went up and functions were<br />

reduced to very small numbers.<br />

We were devastated,” said<br />

Murfitt.<br />

“We had to cancel and we<br />

decided not to try again.’<br />

Jasper the ‘purr-fect’ burglar at it again<br />

• By Devon Bolger<br />

PILES OF socks, underwear,<br />

leggings, and even a bikini have<br />

been mysteriously going missing<br />

in Sumner.<br />

But one resident has identified<br />

the thief – her cat. Mette<br />

Kristiansen says her one-andhalf-year-old<br />

cat, Jasper, has<br />

again been caught red-pawed<br />

with ill-gotten gains clutched in<br />

his claws.<br />

Jasper’s antics were detailed<br />

last Christmas but they have now<br />

become so bad Kristiansen has<br />

been busy dropping off flyers to<br />

warn her neighbours within a<br />

two-block radius about him.<br />

“We got him when he was a<br />

kitten and started doing this<br />

burglarising about Christmas last<br />

year,” she said.<br />

Jasper’s main target seems to<br />

be socks, but he had also claimed<br />

gardening and working gloves,<br />

leggings and shoes.<br />

One neighbour reported him<br />

stealing a bikini.<br />

“I have heard that he definitely<br />

does get into people’s homes. He<br />

walks down their hallway and<br />

into their bedrooms. I’ve heard<br />

tales of him going upstairs . . .<br />

even houses with dogs. He makes<br />

friends with the dogs.”<br />

Kristiansen said Jasper seemed<br />

to be “an incredibly intelligent<br />

cat.”<br />

“One day I was in my bedroom<br />

CAUGHT: Mette Kristiansen and Harriet Kristiansen-Benge,<br />

6, with Jasper and some of the items he has previously<br />

stolen from around Sumner. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

and I think he was wanting attention<br />

– he jumped up on my<br />

duchess where my drawer was<br />

open a fraction. He put his paw<br />

down, got one little claw out,<br />

picked up one of my socks and<br />

flung it on the floor. He then did<br />

it again.”<br />

Each day Jasper could steal up<br />

to five items.<br />

“He comes through our cat flap<br />

and just drops them in the hallway<br />

after his rampages around<br />

the neighbourhood overnight.<br />

Sometimes he gets a bit lazy and<br />

drops them around the garden.”<br />

Each day she puts two large<br />

bins out by her front door filled<br />

with stolen items so her neighbours<br />

could collect anything<br />

stolen.<br />

In spite of being a “wee bit<br />

worried” about the reaction from<br />

neighbours, Kristiansen<br />

SPOTTED: Jasper has been stealing items, including this<br />

pair of shoes and gardening gloves.<br />

said most people “love the<br />

story and find it extremely<br />

entertaining.”<br />

“I don’t think a lot of people<br />

realise they are missing items<br />

. . . that’s why I’m finding it really<br />

hard to return things to people,”<br />

she said.<br />

A Facebook page has also been<br />

set up. Neighbour Brooke Carroll<br />

and her three children – aged<br />

seven, five, and two – were just<br />

some of Jasper’s victims.<br />

“He will steal socks . . . he<br />

steals lots from the clothesline,<br />

he’s stolen upwards of 50 socks.”<br />

The morning after Halloween,<br />

they saw a bikini Jasper had<br />

stolen hanging on the front<br />

fence.<br />

“The kids think it is hilarious<br />

. . . they can’t find their rugby<br />

socks so we go and look in the<br />

Jasper bin.”<br />

Toy swap relieves pressure on families<br />

A PASSION to help families<br />

during the festive season led<br />

the team at Barnardos Early<br />

Learning Centre to set up a toy<br />

swap within the centre.<br />

Families could bring in as<br />

many items as they liked at the<br />

Mairehau-based centre and take<br />

what they needed.<br />

Said centre manager Gillian<br />

Chappell, who came up with<br />

the idea: “Swaps are a great way<br />

to share materials and connect<br />

with the community. This is a<br />

great time of year to share toys<br />

children aren’t using and pick up<br />

items for Christmas giving”.<br />

It also means less pressure on<br />

whānau pockets as Christmas<br />

approaches.<br />

“You don’t need to spend lots<br />

of money around Christmas.<br />

You can choose to make it special,”<br />

said Chappell.<br />

The centre invited the wider<br />

community to the Toy Swap,<br />

provided morning tea with a<br />

focus on supporting vulnerable<br />

families to build connections<br />

and can give to others.<br />

Chappell also started thinking<br />

about the environment, sustainability<br />

and how the centre could<br />

reduce its carbon footprint.<br />

The initiative enabled the<br />

centre to avoid throwing away<br />

usable items and helps showcase<br />

how “fun” reusing can be.<br />

“We started out offering to<br />

our whānau, and because of<br />

the amazing response opened<br />

it up to the wider community.<br />

We gained some really positive<br />

feedback and will run the swap<br />

again next year.”<br />
