Festive season shoppers

good for Papanui retailers

• By Bea Gooding

A SHOPPING boom in Papanui

during the festive season made it

one of the suburbs with the largest

retail spending increase across the

city.

A report by economic development

agency, ChristchurchNZ,

revealed spending in December

shot up four per cent city-wide,

and nine per cent in the city

centre, compared to data from the

same month in 2019.

Along with an 18 per cent

increase in Papanui, Lyttelton

and Spreydon also had the largest

growth in spending.

The growth follows a tough

financial year for the city, with

the absence of international tourists,

a lockdown, and alert level

changes.

Garden City Produce on Cranford

St only opened in November

last year. Owner Daryl Morris has

no regrets setting up a new business

in the midst of a pandemic.

The family business saw

demand surge in December,

particularly leading up to

Christmas and has been “steady”

ever since. Berries, he said, were

the most popular purchase.

‘Cycleway won’t destroy

local businesses’ – Dalziel

Have Your Say

What do you think of

the cycleway plan?

Email bea.gooding@

starmedia.kiwi

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel

has promised a planned new

cycleway won’t destroy local

businesses.

The owners of the Copenhagen

Bakery are unhappy with

the loss of car parks to make

way for the Wheels to Wings

cycleway.

The loss of

parks is due

to a proposal

as part of

the cycleway

to narrow

Harewood

Rd from four

lanes to two.

Dalziel told

Chris Lynch

on Newstalk

ZB they are

Lianne

Dalziel

holding a genuine public consultation

on the plans.

“I have heard people make

comments that this is a slam

dunk, it’s a foregone conclusion,

I just wanted to mention . . . the

Papanui Parallel cycleway from

Northlands Mall to the central

city, more than 80 changes were

made to that.”

Dalziel said she will personally

go and speak to the owners of

the Copenhagen Bakery.

The cycleway is expected to

provide a connection for local

cycling trips in the Harewood,

Bishopdale and Papanui suburbs.

Street parking will be reduced

to three parks outside Copenhagen

Bakery on Harewood Rd.

Owner Donna Thomsen told

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

Lynch elderly customers and

tradies rely on street parking

when the 12 on-site parks are

full.

“Of course the kids need to be

safe and I do love to see bums on

bikes but the democracy of the

process is very disingenuous. We

only got approached last week.

“This will annihilate our business.”

The view of Harewood Rd

from the Copenhagen Bakery

where it is proposed four lanes

be reduced to two.

The removal of on-street parking

is a key part of the wider

plan.

City councillor Aaron Keown

said the exact number of parks

that are expected to be removed

is not known but it is “most”.

Keown said the entire

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board, which he is a

member of, opposed the plan.

“When you hold up traffic and

keep it on the road for longer, it

uses more carbon so it’s a bit of

a farce when we claim climate

change and say we’re going to

save the planet.

“A big chunk of the population

isn’t going to use the cycleways

so they’re [council] going to try

and force them out of cars and I

think the public is smart enough

to know that that’s the agenda

that seems to be going on.”

Keown said the cost of the

plan, an estimated $20 million,

is far beyond what the community

board was expecting.

“It makes no sense.”

Reader Dianne

Downward responds

to the cycleway plan

I would like all road users to

be safe.

However, I don’t think

turning a busy four-lane road

into a two-lane road to make

way for an over engineered

cycleway, paid for by cars, is the

answer to traffic congestion and

cycle safety.

I strongly feel those who are

pushing for us to cycle and ride

the bus need to lead by example.

This includes the mayor and all

the People’s Choice councillors

and their staff, including the

roading engineer.

There are plenty of cargo

bikes and weather proof trailers

for bikes that will carry any gear

they need that doesn’t fit into a

backpack, or they can take the

bus.

They can be true leaders and

do what they want the rest of

us to do with no complaints

or excuses, starting now,

they can cycle to the public

“consultations’’ on this subject.

Cancer Society shuttle service gets boost

THE CANCER Society’s

Canterbury West Coast division

shuttle service received a boost

recently with a combined

donation of almost $13,000 from

23 South Island-based Lions

clubs.

THe free shuttle service

transports patients staying

in the Cancer Society’s

accommodation, Daffodil

House in Merivale and Daffodil

Lodge in Riccarton, to and from

radiation and chemotherapy

appointments at Christchurch

Hospital.

Janice Porter-Hoare,

fundraising and events manager

for the Cancer Society’s CWC

division, said that the Lions

Clubs’ significant donation was

a huge help towards funding the

$65,000 required to operate the

shuttle each year.

“The shuttle currently operates

from 7.30am until 9pm Monday

to Friday, which translates to

approximately 16,000 individual

patient trips. Given that the

patients we are providing our

service for, come from all over

the South Island it is fabulous

to see local Lions Clubs from a

variety of regions supporting

this Christchurch-based service,”

Porter-Hoare said.

Porter-Hoare acknowledged

that this was the fourth

consecutive year that the Lions

Clubs had donated to the shuttle

service.

“The late John Cramond from

Motueka organised the first

donation in 2017 after having

used the shuttle service himself

while having cancer treatment

in Christchurch,” Porter-Hoare

said.

“Sadly John passed away last

year, but his legacy lives on in

this donation, which is extremely

important to us given that we

anticipate the demand for the

shuttle service to grow even

further during 2021.”

Lions Club representative

Christine Stewart, 1st Vice

District Governor for District

202J, visited Daffodil House to

see the shuttle service in action

and accepted a certificate of

thanks from the Cancer Society

on behalf of the contributing

Lions Clubs.

In addition to providing

accommodation and transport

services, the Cancer Society

provides education and support

services for cancer patients and

their families, as well as coordinating

and funding cancer

research.

Importing delays a concern

• From page 1

Said Morris: “[Demand] is

improving every week – about

10 per cent a week, even with no

advertising. We didn’t know what

to expect.

“It was busy because of Christmas,

but January was actually

busier with more people knowing

where we are.”

In spite of the holiday season

ending, Morris was feeling

optimistic for the year ahead.

“I’m an optimist and always

look on the bright side. I wouldn’t

have opened [the business] otherwise.”

The same can be said at Black

Sheep on Papanui Rd – the

country’s leading retailer of

electric scooters, e-bikes, and

hoverboards.

Owner Luke Ambrose said

there was a “big demand” for

products all year, but December

proved to be different.

He was relieved the business

did not suffer too greatly last year,

however, delays in importing

products overseas were the main

concern currently.

“December was quite busy, last

year was a lot busier than 2019,”

he said.

“People seem to be spending

their money on bikes because

they can’t go anywhere [overseas].

PROMISING: Retailers in Papanui, including Garden City

Produce, experienced a spike in sales during December

last year compared to data from the previous year.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

It’s made people realise they want

to get out a bit more.”

The report said, popular items

on the shopping list included

apparel, home and recreational

goods, personal items, groceries,

and alcohol.

However, fuel and automotive

spending decreased by five per

cent – a trend in recent years

following a push for residents to

use alternative transport.

Spending on clothing and

personal items saw the greatest

growth in December, with

domestic visitor spend up 20

per cent compared to the same

period in 2019.

“Across the city, retail spending

was robust in December 2020 as

consumers prepared for Christmas,”

the ChristchurchNZ report

said.

“With December being the

first month of the summer and

holiday season, the impact of

closed borders on the visitor

economy has become more

apparent and will continue to do

so as the season progresses.”

Camera cradles to help

track coastline change

THE PUBLIC will be able to

help track how New Brighton’s

coastline is changing over time.

Camera cradles have been

installed at New Brighton Pier

to encourage people to take part

in the CoastSnap community

science project.

CoastSnap relies on the

public taking photos at the same

locations at different times and

sending them to the city council.

This will help determine

how coastlines are changing

over time due to human activity

and natural processes such as

storms, rising sea levels and

day-to-day changes in the beach

structure.

Cradles have also been set up

at Taylors Mistake to track how

its coastline is changing.

Said city council head of

planning and strategic transport

David Griffiths: “We have set

up camera cradles at Taylors

Mistake and on the New

Brighton Pier in the hope that

visitors to those locations will

take part in the project by

taking a photo and sharing it on

the CoastSnap app, via Twitter

or Instagram, or by emailing

coastsnapchch@ccc.govt.nz

“Using a specialised technique

known as photogrammetry,

CoastSnap turns your photos

into valuable coastal data that

is used by coastal scientists to

understand and forecast how

coastlines might change in the

coming decades.

“The beach and dunes at New

Brighton and Taylors Mistake

are dynamic, natural systems

that are constantly changing.

CoastSnap will help us to better

understand how the beaches

respond to changes in wave conditions,

weather and extreme

storm events.

“Every photo that is taken will

add to a community database

that will be used by scientists and

planners to map shoreline changes.

That information will help

us to improve how we manage

treasured coastal environments,

so please get snapping.

“There’s a sign at each camera

cradle site explaining what you

need to do so it is an easy project

for people to get involved in.’’

The CoastSnap app can be

downloaded from the app store

or Google Play.

CoastSnap is a joint project

involving the city council,

Environment Canterbury and

Canterbury University.

chefs will take turns to create

dishes from a plant-based

mystery box.

Perfect job for an interest in nature

Dean Pendrigh is the

collections curator for

the water garden, azalea

garden and the pinetum in

the Botanic Gardens and

has been working there for

the past 35 years. He talks

to Ella Somers

SKILLED: Dean Pendrigh tends to the plants in the Botanic Gardens. He has always had

an interest in nature.

A PASSION for nature led Dean

Pendrigh to pursue a botanical

career immediately after high

school and he started his

four-year apprenticeship at the

Botanic Gardens in 1986.

His apprenticeship included a

brief scholarship to Melbourne,

on his return he continued working

at the gardens.

Pendrigh said he has “always

had an interest in nature” but it

wasn’t until high school when his

uncle introduced him to orchids

that “really got me interested in

plants and native plants as well.”

He enjoys botanical work

because every season is different

and “something will be far better

one year and not the other,” he

said.

“I like the biogeography and

learning about where plants

come from and how plants react

to other plants and in different

countries.”

As well as maintaining the

collections and keeping careful

plant records, a large part of Pendrigh’s

job includes tasks such as

weeding, pruning, and cutting

hedges.

Watering takes up a lot of time

as well because “a lot of my areas

don’t have any actual automated

irrigation so we do it by hand,”

he said.

Due to the names of plants

changing frequently, updating

and labelling records is a

continual project and can be

frustrating.

“You get to know the name of

a plant and then a botanist will

change it,” Pendrigh said.

“Sometimes you’ll change a

label and then they’ll change it

back to the original name.”

Pendrigh said that while he

gets a lot of good comments

from people who come through

the garden, “a lot of people

don’t realise how much work is

involved,” he said.

In comparison to other trades

as well, it’s not recognised as

much as it should be.

“There is a lot of knowledge

that you need to know, and it

takes a long time to build up that

knowledge, especially that plant

knowledge,” he said.

“The names of plants you have

to learn as well, it’s like learning

another language.”

Pendrigh’s passion for

“everything botanical” has

inspired him to travel to

places across the world where

interesting flora lives, including

Africa.

“They’ve got a very diverse

flora,” he said.

“It increased my interest in

plants even more seeing them in

their natural habitat.”

He doesn’t have a favourite

plant but if he had to name his

favourite plant group, it would be

plants from the southern hemisphere,

New Zealand, Australia,

and South Africa in particular.

“There’s some interesting links

between the floras of those countries,”

Pendrigh said.

“And because I’ve seen them in

the wild, you appreciate them a

lot more.”

One of the most interesting

visitors that the Botanic Gardens

has had in Pendrigh’s time was

a visit from the Dalai Lama in

1992.

“He planted a himalayan pine

tree in my area,” Pendrigh said.

Unfortunately, the tree was

stolen a week after it was planted

and neither the thief nor the

Dalai Lama’s tree were ever

found.

The tree that now grows where

the Dalai Lama’s one used to be

“is one that I actually planted,”

Pendrigh said.

Yacht club to celebrate 100 years

PLEASANT POINT Yacht Club celebrates

its centennial this weekend.

The club, now based in South New

Brighton Park, began in 1921 on the shores

of the estuary just behind where the South

New Brighton School is today. The area was

then known as Pleasant Point Domain.

In 1929 the club moved across to the

western shore to an area of mud flats at the

mouth of the Avon River that would become

known as Rat Island.

Over the years, the club built up and

improved the land together with the club

facilities and held summer sailing and

racing programmes, teaching hundreds of

children and adults how to sail. That was

until the first of the Canterbury earthquakes

on September 4, 2010 damaged the

buildings and land beyond repair.

In the 10 years since, it found a new site

and has built a new yacht club (opened in

September 2019) in South New Brighton

Park – just a stone’s throw from where it all

began in 1921.

The centennial celebrations will provide

a great opportunity to relive the highs and

lows of the club’s 100 years, especially the

last 10 years of the rebuild.

The celebrations kick off with a noggin

‘n natter on Friday night, on Saturday, the

Sullivan Cup, which is the club’s main open

event, will be sailed, coupled with another

major trophy, the Arch Lamb trophy for the

Sunburst class.

The races will feature multi-hulls, trailer

yachts and senior and junior racing dingy

classes and are open to other yacht club

members.

Saturday’s sailing will be followed by a

celebration dinner.

On Sunday, the club will run its Classic

Yacht Race, first sailed at the club’s 75th

celebrations. This will be coupled with a

display of classic boats of all types owned

by members of the Classic Boat Group of

Canterbury. There will be plenty for the

public to see on Saturday and Sunday.

For more information, phone Ian Douglas

on 027 4719 208.

EXCITED: Nigel

Humphreys of the

Pleasant Point Yacht Club

getting ready for a big

weekend.

Make a great first impression before your buyers even get inside!

First impressions always count, and it will

certainly matter when potential buyers

come to view your home. Before potential

customers have set foot inside your house,

it’s likely that they have already formed their

first impression of your house. If you want

your house to stand out then you will need to

work on what your house looks like from the

outside first.

What does this mean though? Imagine you

are the buyer as you walk through your front

yard, look at all the things that you think are

unappealing – a hard to unlock or open gate,

broken fence palings, weeds growing through

the cracks in the footpath. There are so many

little things that could turn off potential

buyers, so it’s best to go through and fix

those little things up.

• Mow and edge trim your lawns, fertilise

them ahead of time so they are nice and

green for the marketing campaign

• Waterblast your paths and driveway

• Wash down your house or give it a touchup

coat of paint if required

Check Your Insurance Policy!

Insurance policies, like any legal document

tend to have a lot of ‘fine print’ which a lot of

us tend to ‘speed read’ over – but what are

you missing?

It is important to check your policy to find out

what your requirements are when you have

a rental property. You must have insurance

on both the dwelling and the contents as

this covers fixtures and fittings, like carpets,

curtains, and even internal walls, and even if

the tenants have insurance their own policy

will not cover these things.

One thing that is very important is the

frequency of inspections, and what is

required. I know my own insurance policy

Recently Sold!

• Trim any hedges and importantly any

bushes or plants that might be covering

windows and blocking light into the home

• If you have outdoor lighting have this in

good working order with some nice bright

bulbs, this is very important during a

winter sale

• Tidy up any sheds, playhouses, sandpits,

fishponds, water features, clotheslines or

vege boxes that you have in your yard. If

there time has come it might be better to

take these away altogether before going

to market otherwise a lick of paint or

wood stain will go a long way

• Add some greenery by your front door

with a nice pot or planter box

• A new letterbox is an inexpensive way to

make your place standout from the street.

To get some inspiration have a walk around

your neighbourhood and see which homes

standout as giving a great first impression

and make some notes as to what makes them

appeal without evening setting a foot inside!

for my rental properties stipulates that an

inspection must be done at least every three

months, and I must have a documented and

dated report to show that the inspection has

been done. I for one don’t want to find out

what the consequence of not complying is.

It was also brought to my attention that if

there is problem at the end of the tenancy

and you have not carried out all the due

diligence on checking the tenants before

they move in, this could pose a problem for

you to make any claims on damages, either

accidental or intentional, not to mention if

the property was contaminated by meth!

So in a nutshell, you need to conduct

Vanessa Golightly,

and Licensee Agent

Ray White Papanui

thorough checks on tenants before they

move in and make sure you conduct your

routine inspections as per your insurance

policy.
