changes

under way

IMPROVEMENTS are coming

for the 1400 passengers a day who

board buses near the Eastgate

Shopping Centre.

City council contractors have

now started construction on

creating an improved public

transport hub on Buckleys Rd.

“The Buckleys Rd public

transport hub is one of the busiest

in Christchurch, with about

470 buses using the bus stops

daily,’’ said city council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis.

“As part of our ongoing commitment

to improving public

transport facilities around the

city, we are going to make changes

to the road layout so that it is

easier and safer for people to access

these bus stops.”

The existing bus stops will

be grouped together and a new,

signalised pedestrian crossing will

be installed to make it easier for

people to get across Buckleys Rd.

New and improved bus shelters

to create a “pleasant space” for

passengers while they wait for a

bus is also being constructed.

Garage operation no longer viable for charity

• By Bea Gooding

A CHARITY that has supplied

hundreds of emergency baby

supplies for vulnerable families

needs a new home, and it will

take a village to get there.

It Takes a Village Canterbury

currently operates out of the

garages of two volunteers, but it’s

no longer safe or realistic to do

so, given they live more than 30

minutes apart.

Keeping up with increasing

demand – while clambering

over towers of donated clothing,

toys, feeding and bathing items,

nappies, linen and high chairs –

produced issues only a dedicated,

permanent facility could fix.

“It’s getting to the point now

where it’s becoming unsafe. We

both have families, and the kids

climb all over this stuff in the

garage,” said Jess Roberts, who is

in charge of the toddler bundles.

“We need a proper place where

people can donate items to,

where we can store, pack and

distribute bundles.”

The Canterbury-based charity

donates free baby and toddler

bundles to families who may not

be able to afford basic items for

their children.

The charity sources the items

from others through a number of

pay-it-forward Facebook groups

started by the charity in 2016.

Canterbury was established in

2017 as a way to share resources

to where it was most needed.

Now consisting of more than

20,000 members who regularly

pay it forward, the small team of

volunteers are struggling to keep

up with the mammoth task of

sorting through donations.

Donations were currently

being sorted and stored at the

homes of bundle managers

Danielle Petterd and Roberts,

who have to travel back and forth

from Kaiapoi and Southshore.

But as the amount of donations

continues to grow, so does

the demand for the families

receiving them.

Since 2019, the charity has

put together no more than 200

bundles a year on average.

In the wake of Covid-19,

demand increased significantly

in the last 12 months.

“It’s just getting bigger because

more and more people need help,

especially because of Covid-19,”

Roberts said.

“We’ve already made 70 [bundles]

this year, but by the end of

the year, I think it’ll be 700.

“We do this in our spare

time, and this is taking over our

spare time now. It’s very clearly

become full-time, but I can’t

make 27 bundles a month, work

full-time and be a mum.”

Needing a permanent facility

did not mean the charity wanted

to build a new one from scratch.

In line with its ethos on

sustainability, where it prevents

thousands of items from making

their way to landfill, an existing

building was all that was needed,

like an old doctor’s office.

More than $27,000 was needed

through its Givealittle fundraiser

to go towards rent, operational

costs, and the ability to hold

workshops.

Said Roberts: “Part of our

ethos is sustainability, and there

are enough empty places in

Christchurch. If we had a dedicated

space, then we could look

at the option of a delivery service

as a lot of people don’t drive.

“We’re also looking for some

space available to run classes to

help these families, like how to

reduce your food bill and still

enjoy it – where you can help

yourself, but you need someone

to show you how.”

Chance for girls

to learn new

techniques

•From page 1

Eden and Milla were ecstatic

when the Tactix took the win on

home turf. The sisters enjoyed

chatting to the captains saying:

“We told them we play netball and

how we won our games for Parklands

Netball Club last weekend –

they were impressed,” Milla said.

For Eden, meeting the captains

was a huge moment. “They’re

really inspiring to me. I love how

they play the game, how quick

they get the ball, and how good

their passes are down the court.

I want to try to bring their spirit

into my own games,” Eden said.

Both sisters plan to try out some

of the elite techniques they saw on

the court this season.

“Ellie Bird really inspires me.

She brings the defence out and

then runs back into the circle

with the ball. Plus, my teammates

cheering helps me to get the goal,”

Milla said.

“I really want to try getting

quicker passes into the circle

and focus more on my shooting.

Because usually when I have the

ball in my hand I am panicking,”

Eden said.

ANZ head of sponsorship Sue

McGregor said ANZ is committed

to its support of netballers from

local players right up to the elite

athletes.

CHANGES: Construction to improve one of the city’s busiest bus hubs on Buckleys Rd by Eastgate Shopping Centre has

now started.

IMAGE: NEWSLINE ​

Project will take around four months to complete

• From page 1

To enable all these changes

to happen, Norwich St will be

turned into a cul-de-sac. This

will be one of the first changes.

“We’ve had issues in the past

with buses blocking people’s

driveways, but the changes we

are making should reduce the

likelihood of that happening,’’

Ellis said.

The transport hub improvements

are likely to take about

four months to complete. The

contractors will be carrying out

some of the work at night when

there is less traffic around.

Said Ellis: “Buses will be running

to their normal timetables

during the construction period

but the location of some of the

bus stops may change. If you are

catching a bus at Eastgate, please

allow a little extra time.”

Temporary ban on freedom camping at

North Beach could be made permanent

Freedom campers on

Marine Pde.

BYLAW: Freedom camping at North Beach could be

permanently banned under proposed bylaw changes.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

THE CITY council is calling

for public feedback on proposed

changes to the Freedom Camping

Bylaw.

This week marked the beginning

of a five-week consultation

period.

“We invite people to have their

say on the bylaw changes that we

are proposing,’’ said city council

head of strategic policy Emma

Davis. “The feedback we get from

people will be important as it will

influence the final form of the

Freedom Camping Bylaw.’’

The bylaw has been in place

for five years and legally has

to be reviewed. The bylaw has

generally been working well, but

council staff are recommending a

small number of changes.

Those changes include:

• Making the temporary ban

on freedom camping in the

North Beach carpark permanent.

The ban would apply at weekends

from October to May.

• Creating a city coastal

restricted zone where freedom

campers could stay for up to four

nights in any 30-day period.

This would replace the current

rule, which allows campers to

stay for two nights in a 30-day

period, but not within 500

metres of where they have

previously stayed. This new zone

will prevent campers using the

500 metre rule to move short

distances every few days to stay

in the coastal area for extended

periods of time.

• Introducing a new rule to

encourage campers to be more

careful about how they set up

their camping vehicles and any

other camping gear. The rule

would prevent campers from

blocking thoroughfares and

spreading out, particularly in

busy car parks, where other users

need access and where it could be

a safety issue.

• Creating a specified area at

Naval Point in Lyttelton where

freedom campers can stay, and

limiting the number of freedom

camping spots to 18 vehicles.

At the same time as the city

council has been proposing local

changes, the Government has

been proposing national changes.

The Government proposals are

likely to lead to changes to the

Freedom Camping Act, but won’t

be finalised for some time.

“This is a separate process to

the council’s bylaw review,” said

Ms Davis.

“It’s important that we continue

the process to review our bylaw,

or the bylaw will lapse, leaving us

with no bylaw to manage freedom

camping. There’s strong public

support for the bylaw, so we don’t

want that to happen.”

The city council’s bylaw process

will be completed before changes

to the Freedom Camping Act

are finalised.

Fruity initiative helps locals in need

• By Samantha Mythen

THE FRUITS of a community

organisation’s labour have

resulted in the donation of

boxes of cleaning products and

personal hygiene items to the St

Ambrose Church Aranui Food

Bank.

The Heathcote Valley

Community Fruit Harvesting

group made $180 in two hours

selling quince and marmalade

made from fruit off trees on

the properties of Heathcote

residents.

This money, paired with a

voucher donated from New

World Woolston, was spent on

cleaning products and hygiene

items such as sanitary products,

razers and soap, which were

donated to St Ambrose Church

Aranui Food Bank on Friday.

The food bank provides

support to those living in

Burwood and Pegasus.

Heathcote residents Paula

Aitken and Amelia Knight-Baré

started the harvesting group

last year. They usually donate

fresh fruit, homemade jam and

marmalade to the food bank.

A team of other volunteers also

helped to make the preserves.

Following a recent

conversation with the food

bank, Aitken and Knight-Baré

thought of donating the essential

cleaning and hygiene products.

“If you can’t afford to buy

food, you won’t be going to

the supermarket to get those

products,” said Aitken.

Aitken and Knight-Baré did

not know each other prior to

starting their group.

However, they were sharing

the same idea, wondering about

what to do with all the excess

fruit on trees in the valley.

A mutual friend brought them

together and the group was

formed last year.

The goal is to pick unwanted

fruit from backyards and

orchards to share with those in

need.

Aitken explained ‘fruit fatigue’

is one of the issues with fruit

waste.

“Some trees produce huge

quantities of fruit, year after

year, which can become

burdensome to homeowners.

Busy people often lack the time it

needs to harvest fruit trees, and

to deal with a large quantity of

fruit,” she said.

Aitken said they are both

concerned about the rising cost

of living, and how this filters to

the families food budget.

“We are mindful that fresh

fruit can be a luxury for some

whanau, so have jumped at the

chance to redistribute fruit

that would otherwise have gone

to waste,” she said.

Aitken said one of the most

special things was meeting

people in the community and

making connections, especially

with those who live alone.

“Heathcote Valley is a generous

community, and has been a

continuous source of support for

our initiative,” she said.

They are hoping to see more

community fruit harvesting

around Christchurch,

planning to advertise on

community message boards to

link up with like-minded people.

“We would love to see

community fruit harvesting in

every area in Christchurch, and

we’re willing to support those

wanting to start up their own

group,” Aitken said.

The group can be found on

Facebook – Heathcote Valley

Community Fruit Harvesting.

RD Petroleum (RDP) is a familiar sight

for farm and rural residents around the

Canterbury region, however now days urban

residents also enjoy the same excellent

customer service for which RDP is known for

in rural communities, through their home

heating diesel.

RDP began its home heating diesel delivery

service to the lower South Island’s main urban

centres of Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin

and Invercargill a number of years ago.

Customer demand has continued to increase

year upon year, and RDP has responded

with specialised improvements to its delivery

equipment.

The trucks that deliver RDP’s home heating

diesel in each urban centre are drawn from

the company’s extensive vehicle fleet. This

means they have the latest communication

and GPS tracking technology on board, so

the operations team always know where they

are and how far away they are from their next

delivery stop.

RDP’s home heating diesel trucks come

equipped with a specially-designed hose,

through which the diesel is pumped from

the truck into house tanks. The length of

the hose allows the trucks to access tanks

without having to enter the property, avoiding

damaging the driveway. RDP is the place to

go if you require diesel conveniently delivered

to your home and as a loyal RDP customer

you’re offered discounted pricing and can

become eligible for value-added benefits.

For all enquiries please phone

HOME & HEATING

Get the balance

right this winter

Enviro Master has been helping

Cantabrians get the balance right when it

comes to choosing the perfect heat pump or

air conditioning system for their home or

office since 2002.

Their team of expert sales people, qualified

electricians, heating and refrigeration

engineers, help to supply and install

Christchurch’s widest range of heat pumps,

and because they have no affiliation with any

one brand, you can be assured their advice

on the benefits and differences between each

product is unbiased.

They will recommend the most energyefficient

and cost-effective system for your

individual situation, and will have you

regulating the heat in your home or office in

no time.

Nowadays, customers are often wanting

whole home solutions to be able to maintain

even temperatures throughout the home both

in Winter and Summer. This can be achieved

by using ducted systems or multi systems

and Enviro Master are experts in designing,

installing and commissioning these systems.

Help is currently available with a

government subsidy covering 90 per cent of

the cost of a new heat pump up to $3000.

The subsidy is part of the Warmer Kiwi

Homes initiative and is available to Home

owner/occupiers with a Community Services

Card, a SuperGold combo card or who live in

a low-income area as determined by deciles

8-10 on the New Zealand Deprivation Index.

The applicant’s home must also have been

built before 2008, have insulation up to code

(insulation subsidies also available) and have

no fixed heating in a living area, such as an

existing operational heat pump or fireplace.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

now is a great time to beat the deadline.

Inadequate heating and ventilation can lead

to mould growth and dampness in your

property, leading to costlier maintenance

and an unhealthy living environment.

Providing a fixed heater with a higher heat

output and lower running costs, like a heat

pump, will enable your tenants to heat the

area effectively. Enviro Master are well

experienced with the Tenancy Services

software to ensure that you are meeting your

requirements.

To ensure you choose the right system for

your home or business, one of Enviro Master’s

experts will visit to assess your individual

situation, offer advice and answer any

questions you may have. This consultation

is at no cost to the customer and is always

provided before a heat pump is installed.

Anyone wondering about their eligibility

for a subsidised heat pump are welcome to

get in touch for details and help with the

application process. To find out more, call

Enviro Master on (03) 366 0525 or visit

their website www.enviromaster.co.nz.

Bathroom ventilation

The extraction of air from the bathroom

should be a priority for all houses and

commercial buildings.

Bathrooms can generate a large quantity

of steam and odours. It is important

this compromised air does not circulate

around the house.

Bathroom odours can be unpleasant,

especially when near living, sleeping or

working areas.

The moisture generated by showers and

baths can be damaging to your home and

furnishings and be a major contribution

to condensation. Damp houses are not a

healthy environment for anyone to live in,

especially for children or other vulnerable

people.

By extracting air from the bathroom to

outside, warmer air from inside the house

will move in to the bathroom. Whereas

opening a window can draw cold air

into the bathroom and blow the smelly,

moisture laden

bathroom air into

the house.

Modern houses

are built to be

very airtight and

require mechanical

ventilation such

as extraction fans

or heat exchanger

systems. Although

older houses can

be draughty, the air

often flows in the

wrong direction.

Therefore, they also

usually require mechanical ventilation to

keep the air quality higher.

The quality of the air we breathe affects

our health and ability to perform. We

breathe in and out approximately 20,000

litres of air every day. It is therefore very

important to ensure good air quality

indoors through adequate ventilation.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required extraction for your

bathrooms, and look into air exchange for

your whole building. Smooth-Air offers a

wide range of ventilation equipment, from

air vents to ducting for fans, for both the

commercial and domestic markets.

They have an extensive range of

fans and ventilation components

in-store but they can also provide

innovative solutions tailored to differing

requirements. You can contact Smooth-

Air on 0800 SMOOTH (0800 766684).

Alchemy And Rose

by Sarah Maine

Alchemy And Rose was inspired by the last great gold rush on the west coast of

New Zealand’s South Island in the 1870s.

The quest for gold lured a flood of hopefuls from Europe, America, Australia and Asia

and it brought Will from Scotland, with a price on his head. A shipwreck at the mouth

of the Hokitika river also brought Rose, borne like flotsam upon a wave. It brought

others too, the disgraced and the determined, each with their own quest to follow.

Alchemy is the means by which men seek to turn base metal into gold but, for the

characters in ALCHEMY AND ROSE, there are transformations of another kind. They

come from the old countries to the new, and follow their quests through recklessness,

misadventure, mischief and attempted murder. From Scotland to the goldfields of

New Zealand and on to the booming cities of Victorian Australia they wrestle with fate

to find their fortunes.

Other People’s Houses

by Kelli Hawkins

The perfect house. The perfect family. Too good to be true.

Kate Webb still grieves over the loss of her young son. Ten years on, she spends her weekends

hungover, attending open houses on Sydney’s wealthy north shore and imagining the lives

of the people who live there.

Then Kate visits the Harding house - the perfect house with, it seems, the perfect family. A

photograph captures a kind-looking man, a beautiful woman she knew at university, and a

boy - a boy that for one heartbreaking moment she believes is her own son.

When her curiosity turns to obsession, she uncovers the cracks that lie beneath a glossy

facade of perfection, sordid truths she could never have imagined.

But is it her imagination? As events start to spiral dangerously out of control, could the real

threat come from Kate herself?

The Last Truehart

by darry Fraser

A woman alone and a charismatic private detective are caught up in a dangerous quest

to discover her true identity in this thrilling historical adventure romance set in 19th

century Victoria, from a bestselling Australian author.

1898, Geelong, Victoria. Stella Truehart is all alone in the world. Her good-for-nothing

husband has died violently at the hands of an unknown assailant. Her mother is dead,

her father deserted them before she was born, and now her kindly Truehart grandparents

are also in their graves. Private detective Bendigo Barrett has been tasked with finding

Stella. He believes his client’s intentions are good, but it is evident that someone with

darker motives is also seeking her. For her own part Stella is fiercely independent, but as

danger mounts she agrees to work with Bendigo and before long they travel together to

Sydney to meet his mysterious client where they discover more questions than answers.

What role do a stolen precious jewel and a long-ago US Civil War ship play in Stella’s

story? Will sudden bloodshed prevent the resolution of the mystery and stand in the way

of her feelings for Bendigo? It is time, at last, for the truth to be revealed...

Pretty Things

by Janelle Brown

Nina once bought into the idea that her fancy liberal arts degree would lead to a fulfilling

career. When that dream crashed, she turned to stealing from rich kids in L.A. alongside her

wily Irish boyfriend, Lachlan. Nina learned from the best: Her mother was the original con

artist, hustling to give her daughter a decent childhood despite their wayward life. But when

her mom gets sick, Nina puts everything on the line to help her, even if it means running her

most audacious, dangerous scam yet.

Vanessa is a privileged young heiress who wanted to make her mark in the world. Instead

she becomes an Instagram influencer - traveling the globe, receiving free clothes and

products, and posing for pictures in exotic locales. But behind the covetable facade is a life

marked by tragedy. After a broken engagement, Vanessa retreats to her family’s sprawling

mountain estate, Stonehaven: a mansion of dark secrets not just from Vanessa’s past, but

from that of a lost and troubled girl named Nina. Nina’s, Vanessa’s, and Lachlan’s paths

collide here, on the cold shores of Lake Tahoe, where their intertwined lives give way to a

winter of aspiration and desire, duplicity and revenge.

Someone We Know

by Shari Lapena

It can be hard keeping secrets in a tight-knit neighbourhood.

In a tranquil, leafy suburb of ordinary streets - one where everyone is polite and friendly

- an anonymous note has been left at some of the houses.

‘I’m so sorry. My son has been getting into people’s houses. He’s broken into yours.’

Who is this boy, and what might he have uncovered? As whispers start to circulate,

suspicion mounts.

And when a missing local woman is found murdered, the tension reaches breaking point.

Who killed her? Who knows more than they’re telling? And how far will all these very nice

people go to protect their secrets?

Maybe you don’t know your neighbour as well as you thought you did . . .
