Bid to save

historic

boat house

from the

bulldozer

• By Ella Somers

A COMMUNITY group

has plans to save the historic

Canterbury Yacht and Motor Boat

Club building from the threat of

demolition

and find it a

new home in

Governors

Bay.

The Bays

Boat House

Group want

to relocate the Louisa Eades

club building

to near the

long jetty in Governors Bay. The

club building has escaped demolition

twice since 2019 and is currently

sitting in a storage area on

Lyttelton Port Company land.

The group wants to restore and

reopen the club building to the

public in time for the building’s

100th anniversary in 2023.

Louisa Eades, a member of

the Bays Boat House Group and

secretary of the Governors Bay

Jetty Restoration Trust, said the

response from Lyttelton residents

to saving the club building had

been overwhelmingly positive.

My client’s brief to the architect, William Trengrove, was very clear - a timeless

home that while stylish was also easy to live in. A successful collaboration

resulted in this lovely home situated on the desirable lower slopes of Cashmere.

The home is thoughtfully planned, with interconnecting living rooms all leading

onto an ideal outdoor living space which can be accessed from both living

rooms and the main bedroom.

The generous main bedroom, with its own ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, is on

the same level as the living space - so often wanted by a homeowner, but not

often found.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, with large wardrobes and a family

bathroom. Beautifully landscaped gardens complete the picture, with easy

Green light for skate park

WORK ON a new skate park

in Sumner should roll into gear

next summer after plans for

the wider village green were

approved.

The Waikura/Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board has signed off the Sumner

Village Green landscape plan

and the site name.

Board chairwoman Alexandra

Davids said

the decision

to approve the

overall landscape

plan

means work

can move forward

on the

Alexandra

Davids

development

of the skate

park.

“A strong community is built

on strong connections and the

new skate park offers an inclusive

space where ... young people can

gather and become more confident

while growing their skills,”

she said.

“The community has certainly

demonstrated overwhelming

support for the skate park and

contributed to the design, so it’s

wonderful to sign off on these

landscape plans.

“While funding is not available

until 2025-26 for the greenspace,

PUMPED: Work on the skate area is set to start this summer.

we can build the much-needed

skate park to meet the needs of

our many local skateboarders.”

The skate park will include a

1.9m deep pool bowl with an upper

1.2m deep mini bowl section,

a 1m to 1.2m flow bowl with a

corner extension, a turnaround

quarter pipe and an “across and

down” ledge.

The plan also includes ramps

into the pump bump area and

the manual box, along with a

high pump bump, a rail, a quarter

pipe, a rollover finger and

learner, bank and angled ledges.

Seating, pool-style fencing and

landscaping will mark the skate

park area off Nayland St.

Davids said the wider Sumner

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

Village Green area will be a space

for the whole community to enjoy.

Work on a detailed design for

the skate park will start soon,

with the final build subject to contractor

availability and relevant

consents.

Fencing will be put in place to

restrict access to the rear of the

site.

Well-being, social centre opens for seniors

THE COUNTRY’S first wellness

centre for older adults has

launched in Addington in a bid

to address social isolation.

The Arvida Good Friends

Wellness Centre, is designed to

enable older people to remain

in their homes while having

a place to go to foster social

connections.

Members will be able to utilise

an indoor pool, a specialist gym

for people over 50, physiotherapy

services, a hair salon and a cafe

to meet family and friends.

They will also have access

to health services such as

counselling or podiatry and

can attend classes from yoga

and Zumba to first aid, floral

arranging and whiskey tastings.

At its core, Good Friends

is about having choices and

putting control back in the

hands of older New Zealanders –

a transformative approach to the

ageing experience.

It will support them to keep

well, active and connected

while staying in the homes they

already know and love.

But the centre’s new hair

and beauty salon, Gorgeous

George, has a name that

honours a former resident who

died last year and left behind

a lasting legacy of community

involvement.

Once a resident of Arvida’s

Mayfair Retirement Village,

Upper Riccarton, George

Holdem was a pioneer of

resident-led activities.

When he saw something

that needed attention, he was

frank and upfront about letting

management know and liked to

be part of the solution.

Resident excursions were

another focus for George. He

once famously organised a train

excursion on the TranzAlpine to

Greymouth and back.

He took care of everything

– publicity posters, taking

bookings, getting the tickets and

organising the day.

Said Mayfair manager Graeme

Gordon: “I remember George

as the pioneer of resident-led

activities. He started a tradition

of resident involvement that

continues today at all Arvida

communities.

“George was a one-of-akind,

can-do person that we

all appreciated for his love of

life and ability to inspire other

residents to get involved.

“He was incredibly thoughtful,

innovative, kind and an

exceptional planner.”

In 2019, George was

nominated for the Excellence

in Care Awards, which are run

by the New Zealand Aged Care

Association.

CONNECTIONS:

The Arvida

Good Friends

Wellness Centre

is the country’s

first dedicated

wellness centre

for older adults,

and it has just

opened in

Addington.

“A born leader, George was

quick to volunteer his time,

energy and ideas when he moved

into his new home at Mayfair

village,” an excerpt from his

award entry read.

“His ability to unite

people, build community

and put plans into action has

had a significant impact on

the quality of life of people in

Mayfair and the wider Arvida

community.”

LEST WE FORGET

ANZAC DAY

SUNDAY APRIL 25, 2021

Remembering our Anzacs

“The darkness, calm and chill of the early morning;

the sound of the single tap of the drum of the parade;

the emotionless faces of the catafalque guard, and

the mournful notes of Last Post sounded by a lone

bugler, combine to give a feeling of deep solemnity. It

is the intensity of the symbolism which contributes to

its powerful impact upon participants; indeed what

underlies its popularity. In a country with few public

rituals, the Dawn Service continues to provide a sense of

occasion as a meaningful ritual of remembrance.”

rsa.org.nz

Every year Anzac Day is observed on April 25 by

communities throughout New Zealand and Australia to

remember those who have served and those who lost

their lives in war. The term ANZAC is the acronym for

Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and was first

used in World War 1. These groups of soldiers back then

were known as ‘the Anzacs’.

Anzac commemorations may consist of one or more

ceremonies – one at dawn (timed to coincide with the

initial landings at Gallipoli by Australian troops who were

the first ashore) and/or one later in the morning. The

ceremonies are rich in tradition and generally begin with

a parade of returned servicemen and military personnel

followed by cadets, youth groups and local dignitaries.

War veterans, proudly sporting their medals lead the

Thursday 16th of April

Friday 17th of April

Saturday 18th of April

parade, which leads to a local cenotaph or memorial gate

where the ceremony includes a service with hymns, laying

of wreaths, dedications, prayers and the Last Post played

on a bugle. Morning tea follows and allows people to share

memories and catch up with friends and neighbours.

Anzac Day was first observed by servicemen in 1916 to

mark the anniversary of New Zealand and Australian

soldiers landing on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. It soon

became a day where all New Zealanders and Australians

took time to remember the men and women who

perished in the Great War. In 1921, Anzac Day became an

official holiday and by 1922 it was declared a full public

holiday where shops, banks and hotels remained closed

for the day.

Symbol of remembrance

The red (or Flanders) poppy is a symbol of remembrance

and hope all over the world and, in some countries, is

worn on Armistice Day, however in New Zealand the red

poppy is commonly worn on Anzac Day. The first Poppy

Day appeal was on April 24 in 1922, where funds from

the sales of small and large silk poppies helped relieve

suffering in war-ravaged northern France. A paper version

of the poppy is now sold by the Royal New Zealand

Returned Services Association on Poppy Day to raise

awareness for Anzac Day and funds for returned soldiers

and their families and local communities.

Musical therapy a way to support children

In her nearly three-decade

tenure as a musical therapist,

Julie Wylie reckons she’s

witnessed a miracle every single

day.

Music plays an integral part of

life at the Champion Centre in

Burwood – a non-profit organisation

providing early intervention

for babies and children with

disabilities, or born prematurely.

Looking back, she has seen

a child sing their first words,

take their first steps, and even

helped a four-year-old boy on the

autistic spectrum find his voice

through music.

But after 28 years, it is time for

Cashmere’s Wylie to pass over

the conductors’ baton.

“Every child I’ve met has

taught me so much. It’s not about

their limitations, but about how

children can fly musically,” she

said.

“When you allow them to find

their voice and let them be the

leader, they take you on the most

miraculous journey.”

The centre supports children

and their families with disabilities

or whose developmental

progress is at risk through its

early intervention programme at

Burwood Hospital.

Children with Down’s

syndrome and other genetic disorders,

cerebral palsy, epilepsy,

IN SYNC: After nearly three decades, it’s time for Champion Centre musical play therapist

Julie Wylie to hand over the conductor’s baton.

Photo: Geoff Sloan

developmental dyspraxia, autism

spectrum disorder or brain injuries

were usually referred to the

centre by paediatricians.

During the 1990s, Wylie and

the centre’s speech-language

therapists studied how music

affected the brain and the wellbeing

of child and parent.

Neuroscience discoveries

showed elements of music

could be used in specific ways

to promote well-being and

regulation.

Said Wylie: “I started writing

and reflecting after every session,

then I came across an amazing

book on music and the mind and

I thought, ‘this is the beginning.’

I could see that music could

bring parent and child into synchronicity.”

When a child is in a calm,

regulated space, “then they can

learn.”

Music rhythm, melody, tune,

dynamics such as “loud or soft,”

music with a clear beginning,

middle and end, and the harmony

of instruments impacted

systems in the brain.

Depending on how they were

used, they can either contribute

to regulating or deregulating a

child’s systems.

“Music that has a steady beat,

close to a resting heart rate, encourages

lower parts of the brain

and the body to come into synch

and produce a feeling of calm,”

Wylie said.

Wylie referred to herself as

a conductor, not the leader.

Parents were the leaders as they

could carry on the music at

home.

And ever since music was

introduced to the Champion

Centre, children and parents

have flourished.

“With over 75 years of combined business

experience, we personalise home and

business loans for Cantabrians.”

“Looking back, I have probably

seen a miracle every day,” she

said.

“There was one little boy on

the autistic spectrum, aged four.

He looked like an angel and

had the most incredible voice.

Nobody was seeing anything

cognitively, but music seemed to

make a remarkable impact on

him.

“This little boy has such strong

musicality. I asked his mother to

play him Mozart and he stood

with his ear to the radio.”

A parent could be full of grief,

but “something hilarious” could

happen during the music session.

“The parent then has a good

belly laugh and comments that

they haven’t laughed like that

since the baby was born,” Wylie

said.

“It’s a cathartic experience for

parent and child.”

Many graduates of the centre

who once used music as a form of

therapy have gone on to pursue it

either in their careers or through

study.

Graduate Thomas Eves is

now the chief trumpeter at the

Christchurch Symphony Orchestra,

and Jasmine Butcher was

studying music at university, she

said.

“Another boy, Rohan Soper,

aged 17, who was born premature,

has been learning percussion and

has sat an exam through Trinity

College,” Wylie said.

“India Neville, now 21, is

studying at a music academy in

Canada.”

‘I’ve done everything

I’ve been asked to and

wanted to do, and now

it’s time to bow out.’

– Julie Wylie

Just because Wylie was retiring

from the centre, it did not mean

she was saying goodbye to the

world of music forever.

She will continue to run her

music school, the Julie Wylie

Institute of Musical Play, and

educate the next generation of

therapists through the Postgraduate

Certificate in the Psychology

of Musical Play – a qualification

she developed.

“When I started at the

Champion Centre, I was crying

out, ‘please consider music.’ Now

wherever I go, people are singing

and using music,” she said.

“I’ve done everything I’ve been

asked to and wanted to do, and

now it’s time to bow out.”

$200,000 tag for project

• From page 1

“Many Lyttelton people have

happy memories of the building

when it was used by the Sea

Scouts,” Eades said.

The Lyttelton Port Company

has provided storage for the

club building until the site is

taken on by a new lease. This

leaves the future of the building

uncertain.

Eades said the previous custodians

gave the deed of the club

building to the Bays Boat House

Group “on the understanding that

the building will go to Governors

Bay”.

The whole project is expected to

cost about $200,000. “This figure

is just an educated guess,” Eades

said. “Once we have completed

the first stage of the project we

will have a much clearer idea of

the cost.”

The first stage includes completing

a concept design, determining

the options for transporting the

building and repiling the site, and

producing a costing report.

“We are fortunate to have been

gifted a grant from the R & N

Wait Charitable Trust, proudly

managed by Perpetual Guardian,

to complete this important first

stage,” Eades said.

Eades said the group anticipates

the main source of project

funding will be heritage grants.

“Although the building is not currently

on the heritage list, it holds

Recipes flood in

for cookbook

• By Samantha Mythen

MORE THAN 200 recipes

have been submitted for the

next edition of a cookbook

celebrating the culinary

creations of Lyttelton people.

Harbour Kitchens, published

its first edition in 2009, when a

group of parents from Lyttelton

Main and Lyttelton West primary

schools decided to create a

cookbook as a school fundraiser.

They did a reprint in 2010, and

published a special earthquake

edition in 2011.

This fourth edition will be

published in spring.

This year’s editor Gaynor

Stanley said they have received

well over 150 submissions.

“The contributions coming

in are marvellous. There is an

amazing amount of talent in the

community,” Stanley said.

“They are heartfelt, funny,

straight-forward, eclectic and

fun. It really reflects the makeup

of our engaged community.”

They have received recipes

from the school principal,

Brendan Wright, as well as from

esteemed local chef, Giulio

Sturla.

The group behind the book

decided to do another edition

after the Lyttelton Primary

School’s biennial Peninsula Art

Auction had to be cancelled due

to Covid-19.

Although, the auction will run

again next year, revisiting the

cookbook appealed as good idea.

The creators are all volunteers

and 100 per cent of proceeds

from the book’s sale will go

towards the Lyttelton Education

Charitable Trust.

The recipes will be organised

season by season, with children’s

content sprinkled throughout.

The Avon-Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust

is a non-profit

organisation formed

to protect one of

New Zealand’s

most important

coastal wetlands.

Each week, board

members will discuss matters

regarding the estuary, its rich history

and what makes it unique. This

week Tanya Jenkins writes about the

McCormacks Bay Wetland Reserve

restoration project

IN 1990, the city council

prepared a restoration plan for

the neglected wetland area of

McCormacks Bay.

In 1992, the divided

causeway ground was cleared,

some planting was completed

and three small island were

created, providing safe

roosting areas for birds.

However, funding then ran

out before completion of the

project and the bay was left to

the elements.

The Estuary Trust realised

the enormous potential for

completing the project and

with permission from the city

council to do so, commenced

on the lengthy process of

raising funds required for

a necessary archaeological

report before we

could begin.

In 2013,

the first few

hundred native

trees and

wetland grasses

were secured,

and the community

was called upon to

assist the Estuary Trust volunteers

with the large amount of

work ahead.

Members from the Mt Pleasant

Residents Association,

Ferrymead Rotary Club and

several local residents have

since come to the party.

The work on the bay’s

restoration included removal

of gorse, blackberry and

wilding pine trees, mulching

ESTUARY MATTERS

Frankie’s roller coaster ride to

Frankie Bakker of Little

River has quit full-time

work to be an artist.

She talks to Samantha

Mythen about her

creative practice and

her journey along the

way

Where were you born?

I was born in Zimbabwe.

My parents studied tropical

agriculture and went to

Zimbabwe to work. I was lucky

enough to be born there. But I

was about one when I moved

to New Zealand. Diamond

Harbour is where I spent my

childhood.

What was it like growing up

in Diamond Harbour?

Amazing. I always spent

time outdoors. We had a big

garden. The nature is probably

the biggest thing, being able to

walk up the hill and go for ocean

swims in the middle of winter

just because you feel like it.

When did you find yourself

living in Little River?

About three years ago. A lot

of stuff happened prior – I went

travelling and got really ill and

needed to be home with my

family. The longer I’ve stayed

here, it’s the community that

makes me want to stay. There’s a

little house the previous owners

used to live in while they were

building the main house and

that’s my studio. It’s at the top

of a little hill and has a balcony

looking over the whole valley. I

turn music on and paint. There’s

no reception or Wi-Fi up there.

What’s been your journey

to where you are now, calling

yourself an artist?

After graduating from the

Rudolf Steiner school, which

got my creative juices flowing, I

wasn’t sure what I wanted to do,

so I decided to apply to one fine

arts school (Elam in Auckland)

and see if they would accept me.

I got in, moved there and then

completed my fine arts degree,

which was a roller coaster.

In art school, I focused a

lot on being human and our

CREATIVE: Frankie Bakker working on her latest piece.

obsession with hedonism and

consumerism. After graduating I

had a couple of group exhibitions

in Auckland. I dealt with a lot of

mental health stuff, which has

made a big impact on my art.

My focus turned to the female

body and it was naked because

it’s about self-acceptance, as in

you don’t have to dress a certain

way to be accepted in a certain

way. From there, I put the bird

head in, which is still very

prominent in my work today. It

represents freedom.

There’s so many birds out

there. They’re all beautiful,

completely distinct. No one

really judges them and they don’t

judge each other. This idea has

since structured my art work –

self-acceptance and self-love.

After uni I went to Japan to do

an art residency. I really wanted

to travel and I love Japan. It was

picturesque in my head – like the

ART AT LITTLE RIVER: The concept design for a mural Bakker

will create at Little River School.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

sakura, the Japanese blossoms. It

draws you in.

That was an incredible time

for self-development. I’d gone

on this big trip all on my own

and everything I did was

creative. I had support from all

these amazing people, we did

exhibitions – it was incredible. I

also did a mural at a zoo.

Between then and last year,

I kind of lost it a little bit. But

the Pop-Up Penguin happened,

and this was a huge highlight. It

pretty much sparked the desire,

“I want to do this.”

I started doing the Little River

School mural designs in that

time too.

So this year I have quit my fulltime

job. I have a small cleaning

job in Akaroa, which is totally

delightful and I love it. It means

I have spare time to paint. So far

I’ve had an exhibition in New

Brighton Library called Unwind,

and then I had the Christchurch

Art Show.

What’s been your favourite

project?

Japan Zoo was huge. This was

the first mural I had ever done.

A couple of weeks before I was

due to leave Japan, I asked, “Can

I paint that wall down the road?”

It was completely grey and I

thought, “It needs colour!”

I talked to my residency host

and she explained there was

quite a commitment to painting

something like that.

A year later I was invited back

to paint the zoo’s wall. It was an

incredible two-month project.

Everything was gut feelings – I

went with the first design I drew.

The support was incredible. I

had 100 children at the opening

day who came and did some

painting. It was a huge artistic

highlight.

Tell me about your Pop-Up

Penguin, which raised $17,500

for Cholmondeley’s Children’s

Centre.

I was talking to the Wairewa

Community Trust about

painting a school mural and

then heard about the design

competition for the penguin.

The trust titled it ‘Gateway to

the Peninsula’, which I thought

was really cool. So I went with a

gate. I wanted it to be gold and

to look valuable as this place

is so valuable. I wanted it to be

rich because the whole Banks

Peninsula is so rich in nature.

There’s a lot of blue for the waters

and skies. Then the plants, birds

and insects that we can see

everywhere here.

What project are you working

on now?

I am creating a mural at

Little River School. It started

with my own design and the

Wairewa Community Trust

Committee loved it, so we

started putting a proposal

through. We then decided to

make a whole new design with

the children’s input.

So I put together a teaching

plan for the kids and we

organised an open day with a

working bee around the tennis

courts to get people involved, to

give it more significance as well.

I had no idea the mural would

have such involvement. I thought

I would have done it by now and

painted it within two weeks. But

here we are, it’s going to be done

in May and I’ve done something

for it, every day.

artistic dream

• From page 1

What has it been like working

with children?

So beautiful! I started the class

off by presenting myself as an

artist. They were very excited to

have me there. I rock up with this

presentation. I show them the

Japan mural and the penguin.

And then I showed them a photo

of the tennis court wall and

asked, “What do you reckon?” It’s

bland and has nothing and then I

said: “I’m going to paint a mural

on here and I need you guys to

give me some great ideas so that it

looks amazing.”

This was the interesting point.

They all sat in pairs with a piece

of paper and started drawing

with pencil and then furiously

erasing what they had drawn. I

said, “Guys, this isn’t a piece of art

work. This is the sketch process,

this is the thought process. It

doesn’t have to be perfect.” But

you could see things ticking in

their head, like “This doesn’t look

like I want it too, I’m not sure if

it’s good.”

So I ended up going around

and asking them to tell me what

they were drawing and I also

asked them, “What does that bird

eat, what does it do, what kind

of fun things can you imagine it

could do?”

When I started going around

on the second lap, kids started

throwing out ideas of moons that

were disco balls. It was cool to see

them gain some confidence.

Then at the end I asked them

if they had any further ideas. We

heard about trains flying through

the sky with birds hanging out of

the windows.

After the class, I spent hours

going through their designs and

ideas and then drawing them

myself to put together the design.

You can see how art sparks

those kids. When the teacher

asked the kids what they had got

out of the class, they all started to

say how it inspired them and how

great they feel and they love the

creativity, and it calmed them,

which is amazing.

I have this little dream, by like

40 years old, to be able to do art

SPARKING CURIOSITY: Bakker at the opening day of the

mural she painted at Yuki Park Zoo in Japan. Children

show Bakker their own drawing creations.

therapy. To go back and study

and learn the psychology behind

it and find more sparks.

Where do you find

inspiration? How does Banks

Peninsula influence your work?

The wildlife is huge. Even just

driving through Little River,

there will be pheasants and little

quail on the road, and I will think

those are beautiful and then I will

get home and I will start looking

at images, and then other ideas

pop up from that.

Also, my art reflects what is

going through my head and what

I’m working through. Like at

the Art Show, some people said;

“Well, you have a bit of a crazy

mind coming up with this stuff.”

And I thought, “I guess I do.”

What does being an artist

mean to you?

I am learning what the steps are

to get there. But for me it

has always been a dream. Like

when people ask what did you

want to be when you were

younger, I didn’t want to be a

fireman or a doctor or anything

like that, I always wanted to be

an artist.What are you if you

don’t follow your dreams? You

are lost.

In the meantime, I want to

meet all these other amazing

artists and people that are

involved in art communities and

I want to share my art. Like that

Japan mural and the penguin –

the joy they brought to people

was incredible. So why would you

not do that?

Even the art exhibition last

weekend. It was so interesting,

how some people were like, what

is going on with that art, and

other people just loved it.

In the end, I left thinking that

was really successful. I had so

many great conversations and

met so many amazing people.

The two ladies that were in my

corner as well, like now I’m doing

a collaboration hopefully with

one of them. She does poetry and

I’m going to do the images. It is

opening doors.

How does being creative

enrich your life?

I feel like more of a whole

person when I’m getting creative.

It gives me a purpose and a

positive outlet. Being creative

means I’m doing something with

my thoughts.

What advice would you give to

those wanting to start their own

art practice?

You need to want it. That’s

what it is. And then you give it a

go. Start by factoring in an hour.

People go to the gym for an hour

so why can’t you take another

hour of ‘me time’ where you

decide you are going to create. It’s

the same with writing. Say, “OK,

three o’clock to four o’clock today

I’m going to sit in the park and

just write. I don’t care what I’m

going to write, I’m just going to

write something.”

IT’S DEFINITELY autumn now,

with leaves falling and the night

drawing in.

Anzac Day is this weekend,

and I am looking forward to attending

commemorations across

our communities starting with

the dawn service in Heathcote

before speaking at the Halswell

commemoration and heading to

Sumner for their service.

These commemoration are

recognitions of the sacrifices

made by our defence forces here

and overseas to protect our

democratic system.

They help us remember the

sacrifices made by local residents,

like George Ferguson of

Halswell who enlisted in the

Canterbury Mounted Horse and

was killed in action on the 21st

August 1915 in Gallipoli.

Whole families were affected,

like the Dromgooles of Lyttelton.

Four of the six Dromgoole boys

served in World War 2, serving

in the Royal New Zealand Air

Force, the army and the merchant

navy. Three of them died

on active service as a result of

enemy action.

This year I hope we all also

remember the sacrifices our

defence forces have made to

support New Zealand’s Covid-19

response and the managed isolation

and quarantine systems.

All the staff working in managed

isolation and quarantine

give up so much in order to keep

us all safe. We’ve been incredibly

well-served by our defence force

contribution to the Covid-19

response, and I am very grateful

for their hard and brave work in

difficult conditions.

Tracey McLellan

Member of Parliament Banks Peninsula

Time to remember

sacrifices made

during war, Covid

So this Anzac Day, let’s remember

those who’ve served in

the past and those who’re still

serving today in a different kind

of battle.

And if you do see me about

on Anzac Day, please say hello

as it’s always lovely to make new

connections.

On a different note, you may

have seen coverage in the Bay

Harbour News of the proposed

logging of the Moepuku Peninsula.

I have received letters from

community members and the

residents associations of Church

Bay, Diamond Harbour, and

Charteris Bay. It is great to see

the community being a strong

watchdog for our harbour.

Like them, I am deeply

concerned about the potential

environmental impact of sediment

run-off from the proposed

logging into the harbour.

I have met with the chair

of the Canterbury Regional

Council, Jenny Hughey, to

raise my concerns and seek

assurances that the regional

council will be taking an active

approach here to avoid any

environmental damage.

What will you

learn at the

WEA in Term 2?

Papanui High School

Term 2, 2021 nightclasses

As daylight saving ends and the

evenings become longer why not take

the opportunity to take up a new hobby,

learn a new skill, meet some new people

and have fun at the same time. Come

along to Papanui High School and enrol

in one of our exciting range of Adult and

Community Education Courses beginning

from 10 May.

One of our new courses for Term 2

is an Introductory Course in Modern

Herbalism. This course taught by Rebecca

Barrett will teach students the basics

of plant medicine including common

herbs and essential oils for the health and

wellbeing of yourself and your family.

We also have a wide range of other

courses on offer for Term 2 from

Languages, Woodwork, Dressmaking, Art,

Cooking, Cake Decorating, Yoga, Pilates,

Beekeeping, Ukulele, Photography, English

for Speakers of other Languages, Barista,

Yoga and more. We guarantee you will find

something to appeal regardless of your age

or interests. Most of our classes are held

in the evenings but we have a range of

weekend workshops available in Millinery,

Upholstery, Patchwork, Cheese Making

and Baking using hand raised bread

products.

For further information and enrolment

in these or any of our courses please visit

our website www.papanui.school.nz or

email rpb@papanui.school.nz or telephone

our office on 3520701.

With over 50 events happening in Term

2 at the WEA, there will be something

for everyone, with topics including: arts

and crafts, dance, movement and music,

environment and science, history, language,

literature, philosophy and more.

There are regular groups and clubs,

including Pod-Cast-On, who knit for

babies at NICU and PIPS while listening

to fascinating pod-casts; Craft for a Cause,

making items to support causes and groups

around the city; Book Group, meeting

monthly to discuss an interesting read;

WEA Norwest Branch, meeting every

Friday in Papanui with a varied schedule of

speakers; WEA Outdoor Painting Club who

paint at various locations; and WEA Field

Club, offering monthly trips to encourage

outdoor activity and enjoyment of the

natural environment.

Some highlights this term include Social

Activism – Local and Global, a six-part

course delving into social activism here in

Aotearoa and abroad; All About Eid, an

introduction to the Festival of Eid which

celebrates the end of Ramadan; Afternoon

Tea with Sara Templeton, Councillor

for Heathcote Ward; and The Belief

Continuum – an introductory talk on the

origins of six major religions, what they

have in common and what sets them apart.

Courses are held throughout the week

in daytime, evenings and weekends, with a

strong focus on social and environmental

justice – if it’s good for the people and

planet – then it’s good for the WEA.

On a busy day we can have up to eight

events happening, with dozens of people

coming and going or sitting chatting with

a cuppa in our sociable kitchen space. Our

community is diverse and includes people

from a variety of cultures and ages, coming

together to learn and share skills and

experience, and make friends. As well as

our central city location we also hold classes

in Lyttelton and New Brighton. Committed

to keeping our prices affordable, we offer

some free talks and workshops each term.

Visit us at www.cwea.org.nz to find out

more. Or drop into the WEA office at

59 Gloucester Street between 9:30am and

3:00pm Monday to Friday.
