‘Disgusting’: Vandals target

toy library several times

• By Bea Gooding

VOLUNTEERS AT a toy

library are “disgusted” that

their community facility

has been a target of repeated

vandalism in the last two

months.

Since December 4, the

Hornby Toy Library has been

tagged four times. In the past

year alone, volunteers have

had to spend $2000 replacing

broken windows that were

intentionally smashed.

“I’m disgusted people would

do that. We could’ve bought

a lot more new toys with the

$2000 spent on glass,” said

chairperson Amanda Cosgrove.

“It takes all our time and effort

away from what we should

be doing.”

Aside from one paid librarian

who works eight hours a week,

the small team comprised of

volunteers who poured their

own personal resources into

the facility.

The library has been a place

to borrow toys in Hornby for

more than 20 years but only

now has it been a target for

undesirable behaviour.

Green-thumbed Peter’s achievements grow

• By Bea Gooding

IT ISN’T cheap to maintain an

award-winning garden each year,

particularly in a city teeming

with fierce and passionate

competitors.

Northwood resident Peter

Lawrence is no stranger to

the Christchurch Beautifying

Association summer garden

competition and has worked

what felt like “25 hours a day”

maintaining his $10,000 garden.

Many hours and early mornings

have now paid off as he has

taken out 11 awards at the annual

competition this year.

Regarded as one of the city’s

best gardeners, it was not his

first win – he even has a trophy

named after him for the rest

home and retirement village

category and has claimed nearly

100 awards since he started competing

in 1974.

But taking home the premier

garden award this year, or the

Ruske Cup, was an achievement

he was most proud of.

Said Lawrence: “It’s overwhelming

really, there are some

lovely gardens out there. Hopefully,

it brings some pleasure to

other people by looking at it.

“The premier is the ultimate

award really, so it felt good to get

[it].”

This year alone he planted

7500 plants, including marigolds,

petunias and begonias. His backyard

oasis also features a glasslike

water fountain, sculptures

and a perfectly-trimmed lawn.

Lots of bedding was involved,

he said.

“Majority of it is planting the

garden out – that’s the hardest

work. Now it’s just managing it,

keeping the water up and mowing

the lawns,” said Lawrence.

The recent water restrictions

imposed by the city council

during summer, which were

lifted earlier this month, proved

a challenge when it came to

maintaining water levels.

Like all residents, he was

restricted to using hoses and

sprinklers on alternate days and

could not use water between

certain hours. In spite of this, his

garden came out of the season

unscathed.

Said Lawrence: “I managed to

work around that – I had to get

up earlier in the morning and

put the hoses on, it was a

bit inconvenient but never

mind.”

Bringing about happiness in

the community with his unique

designs fuelled the passion

further, but it was not the only

reason why he delved into the

world of horticulture to begin

with.

“My grandfather was a very

good gardener,” said Lawrence.

“I couldn’t play competitive

sport, so I took my frustrations

out on the garden.”

Lawrence said the nature of

his previous work also played a

part in the growth of his talent

as the former funeral director of

Academy Funeral Services.

Although he was semi-retired,

he was still a contractor at the

home.

In spite of being a veteran

competition winner, Lawrence

has never been met with tension

or hostility by other keen

horticulturists who strived to live

up to the Garden City image as

much as he did.

As well as hard work, the key

to success, he said, was putting

your own stamp on your garden.

“My style of gardening may not

be like other people. One of the

gardens was full of succulents, it

was beautiful,” he said.

“Carry on with your passion,

you never know what’s around

the corner.”

Online store next step for

specialist footwear shop

Just over a year since the doors first opened, The

Shoe Room in Upper Riccarton is about to launch

a new service for customers – an online store.

Owned by podiatrist Charlotte Russell, who

also owns and operates the podiatry clinic Feet

First, The Shoe Room was part of the clinic

before increasing demand for fashionable,

functional footwear prompted her to open the

specialist shop in December 2019.

“The online store is the next ‘big thing’ for

us, and it means that a much wider customer

base will have access to our extensive range,”

Charlotte says.

Customers logging on to the online store will

find photographs of the shoes taken from every

angle as well as information on the designs and

materials used to make them. A size guide on

the website shows how to measure feet, which

Charlotte encourages people to use so they can

be sure of ordering the right size.

The Shoe Room stocks a number of leading

international footwear brands, and the range has

recently been extended with the addition of the

popular Ziera brand. Also, in addition to Propét,

the store now stocks the Dr Comfort range of

medical footwear.

While The Shoe Room’s main focus is on

women’s footwear, the men’s range is also being

expanded, Charlotte says.

Business has grown steadily over the last 12

months, both through word of mouth and with

customers returning to purchase second and

third pairs of shoes, which Charlotte says is

largely due to the service her staff provides.

“That’s our point of difference. Shop manager

Maxine and shop assistant Carol are very friendly

and welcoming and are able to build a rapport

with customers by providing that all-important

personal service and making sure customers get

shoes that fit correctly, are comfortable and look

nice on their feet.”

The Shoe Room’s online store will go live in

February, a fitting complement to the physical

store, which is located at Unit 3, 355 Riccarton

Road, opposite the Lone Star.

Opening hours are Monday 10am-5.30pm,

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday 9.30am-5.30pm,

Thursday 9.30am-5.30pm with late night

Tuesday by appointment only, Saturday 10am-

4pm. However, the online store will be open 24/7.

The Shoe Room looks forward to meeting all of

your footwear requirements.

Carol, left, and Maxine provide the all-important

personal service for The Shoe Room customers

The Shoe Room is located at Unit 3, 355 Riccarton Road, opposite the Lone Star.

Opening hours are Monday 10am-5.30pm, Tuesday to Friday 9.30am-5.30pm,

Saturday 10am-4pm, Tuesday late night by arrangement. Off street parking available.

Three new security cameras

have been installed

• From page 1

It all started at the end of

2019 when the front door

had been smashed, and

the library was forced to

use another entrance. The

windows also suffered the

same fate several times

since then.

Just before Boxing Day,

the building was broken

into, but luckily nothing

was stolen as an alarm

sounded just in time.

“It’s meant to be all about

the kids, I’d rather be

focusing on them not worrying

about tagging and

boarding windows up.”

Cosgrove was not sure

who the perpetrators could

be but had an idea of why

the library was suddenly a

target.

A demolished school

nearby used to bear the

brunt of vandalism in the

area, but now vandals have

set their sights on the library,

which “looks like an

abandoned building.”

Cosgrove was not sure if

this was a widespread issue

in Hornby.

“It’s just a building sitting

there on its own on a massive

block of land. From a

taggers point of view, it’s

in a prime position on the

main road,” she said.

Since news spread of the

library’s predicament, the

community have banded

together to support them,

including the Greater

Hornby Residents Association

and the Hornby

Rotary.

Three new security

cameras have since been

installed and were donated

by web agency Webmad. A

team from the city council

also re-painted the library

for free.

The library plans to

install new floodlights and

fencing once funding allowed.

UNSIGHTLY: Vandalism and tags on the Hornby

Toy Library. It has been hit several times in the

last two months.

“Things like that brings

tears to my eyes. It makes

you want to carry on with

the library and see it blossom.”

A givealittle page has

been set up to support ongoing

costs at the Hornby

Toy Library. To donate,

PETER AND CATHARINE EXCITED

TO BE RICCARTON PARK BOUND

Peter and Catharine Craig are on the

countdown to moving in to Riccarton Park

Retirement Village, and are very excited

by how close they’ll be to the track and

horses. They have both followed gallops

and harness racing around the world and

love the atmosphere around a big day.

They say they will enjoy both the village

community and being able to easily fit their

possessions into their new home.

When Peter and Catharine noticed that

Ryman had bought land to develop near the

Riccarton racecourse, they started thinking

afresh about a move from their home in

Hoon Hay Road.

Then Riccarton Park Sales Advisor Wendy

Kappler showed them the three-bedroom

townhouse floor plan. It included space

and importantly a large garage to meet

their storage and vehicle access needs.

Plus, there are the ‘horses’.

Peter is originally from Auckland and says

he is ‘dual coded’. He has been going

to harness racing and the gallops since

the days of Alexandra Park and Ellerslie

racecourse events in the 1960s. Both his

parents and grandparents were keen on

the sport in those days. His father’s cousin

Thayne Green was a part owner of Sunline,

a horse that went on to earn nearly $14

million in a race career that included two

Cox Plates.

The interest in racing and horse breeding

took place during a long career as an

accountant including seven years with The

Treasury and twenty five with IRD.

In the world of harness racing Peter’s had

ownership interests in several successful

harness horses that he either raced or bred.

He’s also researched and written about

the industry.

Catharine is a gardener, and was brought

up in the Isle of Thanet, Kent, a county also

known as ‘the garden of England’. She says

the couple met while both working for Inland

Revenue in Wellington and she has enjoyed

travelling to meet other horse racing fans.

That has included regular catchups for the

Inter Dominion Pacing Championship that

has been contested since 1936 in locations

including Perth, Adelaide, Christchurch,

Launceston, Melbourne, Auckland and

Sydney. It is fair to say they like travel

and adventure.

Ryman Healthcare’s work on a new

retirement village at the stunning

Riccarton Park location has been

progressing quickly and residents who have

signed up, including Peter and Catharine,

have been excited to see roofs in place and

cladding on the homes.

Peter reckons theirs is the fifth roof on.

“We’ve seen the floor plate go down, we’ve

seen the framing go up, we’ve seen the

roof framing go up... from the racecourse

actually.”

As New Zealand’s largest retirement village

operator, Ryman purchased a 5-hectare site

at Riccarton Park, off Steadman Road, and

is working on the first stage of townhouses

for occupation in 2021.

The facilities include an indoor swimming

pool, a movie theatre, café, hair and beauty

salons, a woodland forest walk as well as

special spectator decks looking out over

Riccarton Racecourse.

The village will provide multiple living

options. The plans includes one, two and

three bedroom apartments and two and

three bedroom townhouses. There will also

be assisted living in serviced apartments

and resthome, hospital and dementia care.

The village will create significant

construction jobs, as well as long-term

sustainable jobs for more than 160 staff.

Enrolment Scheme Amendment

To avoid overcrowding, the Wigram Primary School -

Te Piki Kāhu Board of Trustees has been asked by the

Ministry of Education to make an amendment to our

enrolment scheme.

Under this amendment, we are proposing that students will

be enrolled if they live within the home zone.

The enrolment of out-of-zone students is governed by the

provisions of the Education Act 1989. The proposed

enrolment scheme, which includes a precise description of the

home zone, may be viewed at the school office, where copies

of the scheme are also available, or on our school website.

If you have any feedback on the proposed amendment to our

zone, please contact us on office@wigramprimary.school.nz

by 15 March 2021.
