won the chance to meet

Tactix captain Jane Watson

and Mystics captain Sulu

Fitzpatrick.

The friends led the teams

onto the court as part of

the ANZ Future Captains

programme.

Henrietta is already a

budding netballer and had her

very first five-a-side game only

a week prior. She was awestruck

seeing the elite teams caught in

a tiebreaker.

LACK OF volunteers, funding

shortages, behavioural issues

among youth, loneliness and the

emotional toll of Covid-19.

These are the major issues community

groups and residents are

facing in Papanui as identified by

the groups that serve the area.

The concerns were discussed

at the bi-monthly Papanui Interagency

Community Network

meeting last week, where groups

can share any recent successes or

concerns.

Papanui Baptist Freedom Trust

community worker Damian

Ardell said groups were interested

in a co-ordinated approach in

working through common issues

following the meeting.

The trust provides food bank

assistance, practical, social and

emotional support.

Said Ardell: “The main issues

we’re facing in the community

is related to people with mental

illness, loneliness, and struggling

with the socio-economic aspects

of their lives. Alcohol is always an

issue, but the issue of drug [use] in

particular is growing.

Planting project marks Arbor Day

A MAMMOTH planting

project this weekend marks the

start of a plan to reduce the risk

of flooding in Mairehau and

urban Christchurch.

Conservation Volunteers New

Zealand is hosting their first,

big Cranford Basin community

planting day of the winter season

on Saturday in conjunction

with the city council.

The event also marks World

Environment and Arbor Day.

CVNZ’s conservation officer

Donna Lusby said they were

also offering community planting

days during the week for

businesses and organisations

to be part of creating a living

legacy for the city.

“It’s a great chance for organisations

to muck in and work

together to plant a forest, with

benefits for the team as well as

carbon off-setting and giving

back to the environment,” Lusby

said.

Cranford Basin will be transformed

over the next decade

into a multi-purpose space,

primarily providing stormwater

retention services, but also a

space for recreation and biodiversity.

City council parks programmes

and partnerships

manager Kate Russell said the

planting day marks the start of

the mammoth task of planting

CONSERVATION: Thousands of trees will be planted by volunteers at the Cranford Basin

this weekend to mark World Environment and Arbor Day.

40,000 trees in the Cranford

Basin,

”CVNZ has taken on the

challenge of creating the largest

group of kahikatea in Ōtautahi

Christchurch since pre-European

times,” she said.

“The kahikatea is Aotearoa’s

tallest native tree and loves

wetland areas. When mature,

they will be a food source for

kereru, bellbird and maybe one

day, even tui.”

More than 7000 of the native

conifer have already been

planted in the basin to date,

Russell said.

The rest will be planted this

season with three other public

events planned in June, September

and October.

The project is part of the

Matariki Tu Rākau One

Billion Trees programme,

which was launched on April

25, 2018, to mark the 100-year

anniversary of the end of the

World War 1.

The planting event runs from

10am to noon. Gumboots or

sturdy footwear and gloves are

essential.

The Richmond Community

Gardens will be providing soup

for volunteers who take their

own mug.

‘Awesome’

experience

• From page 1

“It was a really exciting game. In

the last eight seconds, the Tactix

scored a winning goal. I was so

excited, I jumped into the air,” she

said.

Henrietta said the whole experience

was “awesome,” especially

standing centre court with Watson

– her favourite player.

“The captains were so tall. I

think she’s a really good defender

and she shows good sportsmanship

which is really important.”

Henrietta cannot wait to catch

up with her own netball team and

tell them how the Tactix scored the

win.

“You’ve got to jump high a lot

and pass the ball to your teammates

so they can score. I like helping

my teammates,” she said.

ANZ head of sponsorship Sue

McGregor said ANZ is committed

to its support of netballers in

Aotearoa from local Christchurch

players, right up to the elite athletes

in the ANZ Premiership and the

Silver Ferns.

“We hope this experience

inspires them to remain passionate

about their training and to try

their very best on the court.”

Pupils honour their local heroes in

Josh Mackay, Crusaders

Josef Gattsche, Police

• By Bea Gooding

AN EXHIBITION by primary

school pupils has celebrated what

it takes to be a local hero while

putting their multimedia skills to

the test.

The Casebrook Intermediate

School hall was transformed into

an art gallery last week when

hundreds of framed black and

white photos of community

heroes were on display.

The heroes were chosen by

pupils and they held a variety of

roles in society, from firefighters,

nurses and police to sports players,

journalists and even family

members.

“The event was held as a wrapup

celebration for our relationships

inquiry unit,” said teacher

Samantha Kirk.

Each frame had a QR code and

once scanned with a cellphone,

“digital artefacts” created by

the pupils would pop up on the

screen.

The artefacts showed what that

hero did and had background

information about their lives

through podcasts, videos, websites

and slideshows.

The pupils gathered the information

for the project by interviewing

the heroes they chose.

They asked them questions

about early childhood, family,

code on the photo of councillor for Papanui Ward Mike Davidson. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

education, and their careers.

“We started with a ‘hook’ by

hosting community heroes panels

in paired classrooms.

“Staff organised firefighters,

sports players, policemen and

more to be interviewed

by students about their life,”

said Kirk. “This way the students

were taught how to interview

and what makes a community

hero.”

Six years ago I spent several days at Birdlings Flat,

an area I had not visited for over twenty years.

It was a visit that would influence my painting

in many ways. It added to my lexicon of places

beside the sea that I often draw upon when

working.

Visually I was inspired by the shape of the hills

and the conversations between sea, sky and land.

I appreciated the austere elemental geology of

the place. Not to get too esoteric about it, but I

felt comfortable being uncomfortable there.

Since then I have visited various parts of Banks

Peninsula on a regular basis and each time I have

come away with something new to explore via

painting.

Unlike earlier paintings these works are not

seeking to capture or convey these landscapes.

They are certainly shaped by it, but essentially

are by-products of time spent walking, biking, or

simply sitting and looking at local places.

Similar concerns aired

John Heke

Samijhana, mum

Jo Lambie, nurse

Chris Barclay, journalist

• From page 1

“Organisations themselves

are under a lot of increased

pressure and are really struggling

to continue to sustainably

operate.

“Volunteers are extremely tired

and worn out, and resourcing is

a real strain.”

Some of the groups that

attended included the Belfast

Community Network, Kāinga

Ora, Christchurch Methodist

Mission, and the Rotary Club of

Papanui.

Many shared similar concerns

– struggles to find volunteers

to replace older helpers, lack of

funding, and the mental health

or financial distress brought

about by Covid-19.

Youth not engaging with

school, loneliness among older

people, housing shortages and

incidents not being reported

to police due to perceptions it

will not be dealt with, were also

mentioned.

Papanui Youth Development

Trust manager Hamish Flynn

said some of the biggest issues

among youth are mental illness,

in-home violence and drug use,

and isolation.

Said Flynn: “Anxiety and

mental health are off the

chart, particularly with 12 to

16-year-olds with self-esteem.

Driven by social media, this is

a significant issue that mirrors

other western nations, with

awful evidence and figures

related to self-harm.

“This is the demographic that

is flooding counselling services

and really has us concerned.”

In response, the trust

developed a social media

education module highlighting

the dangers associated with

being online and was delivered

to 300 young women last

year.

Youth joining gangs or having

a connection to them has also

grown, he said.

“For some whānau, the

lockdown was the worst possible

outcome and we have seen a

significant increase in some of

the reporting.”

Northgate Community

Services Trust helps families,

older adults and youth in need

through health, education, and

practical support.

In the past year, it has seen

more people struggle to find jobs

or put food on the table.

“A lot of people are on the

benefit and are struggling

with finding work,” said trust

manager André Esterhuizen.

The trust established a free

community meal and vegetable

box service as a result.

And it has taken off since then

– the community meals average

about 50 people each time and

more than 70 families have

signed up to the vegetable box

distribution list.

The boxes not only help

families through a rough patch,

but it enables them to make

a personal connection with

someone else while collecting the

package.

“A lot of people coming in are

lonely, so it became more than

trying to provide meals

to people, it turned out to

be a space to connect,” said

Esterhuizen.

“A lot of people won’t put their

foot out the door, but are willing

to go in and pick up a box.”

The trust was developing

a community cafe providing

affordable food and a safe space

to chat with others.

But getting the project off the

ground proved a challenge. Like

many other groups, securing the

funding needed for the cafe was

hard to come by.

It will also be a place to gain

confidence and work experience

in roles such as the kitchen hand

or a barista for anyone struggling

to gain employment.

Are you ready to grow?

to get their hands dirty.

SUCCESS: Burnside High School won the top spot at Canterbury’s Showquest competition with a piece about the

negative effects of fast fashion.

Burnside takes Showquest

BURNSIDE HIGH School is

Showquest’s newest regional

champion after a strong message

of fast fashion’s detrimental

impact on the environment

struck a chord with the judges.

The town hall was a buzz of

activity last week when teams

from Canterbury schools

competed for a spot at New

Zealand’s biggest performing

arts competition for schools.

Burnside team student captain

Simone Blackie said they

picked their theme because it

was relevant to everyone in the

audience.

“In our piece, we contrasted

our world versus the world of the

workers who are manufacturing

our clothing,” she said

“We did not expect to win. We

didn’t even think we were going

to place. It feels amazing. It feels

unreal.”

Regional competitions are

under way until July 6. Teams

are judged on their overall

production, performance,

movement and theme.

Rockquest Promotions general

manager Matt Ealand said the

regional Showquest competition

had again shown how talented

young people were.

“We are extremely grateful

to be back with live events

this year and yet again we are

amazed by the high quality of

performances,” he said.

“The leadership and teamwork

required ... are immense and

these school teams have done an

incredible job.”

THE WEATHER forecast for two

weeks’ time has confirmed that

it’s going to be cloudy – with a

chance of golf balls.

St Patrick’s School in Bryndwr

is taking a fresh approach to its

fundraising efforts by making it

rain golf balls at the Riccarton

Park Golf Complex on June 11.

Dubbed “Helicopter Hole in

Won”, the plan is for the school

to sell hundreds of uniquely

numbered golf balls. These will

be loaded into a helicopter and

dropped onto the golf course.

Whoever’s ball is the first to

achieve a hole in one, or the closest

to one, will win $1000 cash.

Jo McKenzie, the school’s

Parents and Friends Association

chairwoman, said the novelty and

simplicity factor appealed.

Having hosted golf tournaments

in the past, the school was

no stranger to the sport, but it

was time for a change.

“We were looking for something

fresh that would bring the

school and wider community

together,” said McKenzie.

“We’ve hosted golf tournaments

and charity balls before but it was

time for a change.

“The response from the school

and the community so far has

been fantastic.”

The community has until tomorrow

to buy a golf ball and be

in to win $1000.

Buyers’ names and contact

details will be recorded next to a

number that corresponds with a

particular ball.

Proceeds from the fundraiser

will support the school’s ambassador

programme and junior

gymnastics programme. These

encourage leadership opportunities

and help with technology

equipment for pupils.

Spectators can tuck into a barbecue

lunch from 12.30pm. The

helicopter arrives at 2.15pm.

Dreams realised

in spite of disability

NOT EVEN a disability could

get in Charlotte Holt’s way when

it comes to fulfilling her dreams.

The 18-year-old Villa Maria

College student has earned a

$10,000 scholarship towards fees

to study law and arts at Canterbury

University.

Charlotte was diagnosed with

mild to moderate hypotonic cerebral

palsy at six-months-old. A

lack of tone in the muscles makes

everyday movements difficult

and exhausting.

She said her strong sense of

social justice and empathy for

others was attributed to her time

at the Champion Centre as a

young child.

“Perhaps from my time at the

Champion Centre and my love

of public speaking, I gravitated

towards studying social justice

and law at university,” she said.

“It’s an opportunity to give

back.”

Based in Burwood, the

Champion Centre is a non-profit

organisation providing early

intervention for babies and children

born prematurely, or with

disabilities.

Because Charlotte was continuously

surrounded by children

who also had a disability, she was

not treated any differently.

Her mother Jane said she was a

very relaxed, but “floppy” baby.

“We never put a label on Charlotte’s

condition,” she said.

Holt initially attended Milestones

Centre for three months

before she started at the Champion

Centre at nine-months-old,

mainly with her mother.

They would go in once a week

and then eventually fortnightly

until she was nearly two at the

end of 2004.

“While at the Champion

Centre, Charlotte became very

able with her fine motor skills.

As well as sessions at the centre,

we took her swimming a lot,”

Jane said.

“The staff that work there are

SUCCESS: Charlotte Holt has earned a $10,000 scholarship

that will go towards fees to study law and arts at

Canterbury University.

incredible, very dedicated and

amazing. Early intervention is so

important, it’s your lifeline.”

Charlotte’s nanas often came to

the sessions as well.

“My mother often found it

quite emotional when she visited

the centre, seeing what all these

amazing children were achieving,”

said Charlotte’s father

Chris.

“Charlotte definitely developed

her personality and talent from

the Champion Centre, she received

a lot of attention. She has

become very independent.”

Growing up, Charlotte danced,

sang and played sport.

She then joined her two older

sisters at Villa Maria, where

she became an esteemed public

speaker and achieved her grade 7

trinity speech and drama exam.

Last year, Charlotte applied for

a tertiary scholarship through

her father’s work at the Lyttelton

Port Company that was available

for children of employees to apply

for.

Through a selection process,

she was awarded the scholarship

which will be used towards

university fees over the next two

years.

CONCEPT: Work has started to build the Cancer Society’s

new 52-room complex for cancer patients arriving in

Christchurch to receive hospital treatment. ​

Work starts on

new building to

accommodate

cancer patients

CANCER PATIENTS arriving

in Christchurch to receive

hospital treatment will no longer

have to worry about having a

place to stay.

A sod-turning ceremony last

week celebrated work starting

on the Cancer Society’s new 52-

room patient accommodation at

74 Langdons Rd, Papanui.

The $20 million complex

will serve as a home away from

home for people around the

South Island, including the

Chatham Islands, who need

treatment at Christchurch

Hospital.

It is expected to be completed

by early 2023.

Matapopore Charitable Trust

chairwoman Dame Aroha

Reriti-Crofts performed the

blessing on behalf of the mana

whenua Ngāi Tūāhuriri.

The dawn ceremony was

also attended by Minister for

Building and Construction Poto

Williams, representatives from

Ōtākaro Ltd, Cancer Society

staff and volunteers, and the

companies involved in the

building project to date.

Elizabeth Chesterman, chief

executive of the Cancer Society’s

Canterbury-West Coast Division

described the ceremony as

“a very special and memorable

time, after 10 long years of coping,

making do, fundraising and

planning,” since the 2010 and

2011 earthquakes.

She acknowledged the

Crown’s contribution of $6.5

million in funding towards

the complex from the New Zealand

Government Shovel Ready

Project Initiative Fund

as pivotal in enabling the project

to proceed.

“This is an exciting day for us,

preparing for the turia (journey)

ahead, and we are looking forward

to seeing work progress on

our site over the months ahead,”

she said.

Williams stated that she had

lost her own mother to cancer

and was very grateful for the

support offered by the Cancer

Society.

The building will also house

the organisation’s Christchurch

centre to support local people

with cancer and their whānau.

During colder months it is tempting to

good airflow is important all year round.

Condensation collecting on internal

Consider extractor fans, especially in the

Bathroom steam can be prevented from

Preventative home

maintenance tips

Check your water tanks, pipes

and outside taps

Consider turning off outside taps to avoid

freezing and bursting. Covering water

tanks and pipes is a cost-effective way of

preventing this and reduces heat loss.

Consider your outdoor safety

and security

With the evenings being darker earlier,

frosts on outdoor steps, decks and pathways

are a slipping hazard.

Ensure you have adequate outdoor

lighting, a clutter free and smooth pathway

to your rubbish bins, woodpile, external

garage or sleepout.

Clean up spills immediately. Consider

moisture-absorbent mats and handrails.

Cut back your trees

With the leaves already fallen, now is a

good time to assess your trees and trim

back any dead branches and branches

overhanging your windows, spouting and

roof. Check your roof for leaks, loose nails,

and that it has a sound coating. Also look

for moss and algae.

Clear your gutters, drains and

downpipes

An accumulation of autumn leaves can

quickly block gutters, which can lead to

roof leaks, overflow and flooding. Consider

protecting your gutters from birds, hail and

leaves.

Stagnant water may freeze resulting in

gutters and downpipes coming loose or

collapsing.

Blocked drains are a potential health

hazard, create an unpleasant odour and

attracts bugs and small pests.

Store your seasonal equipment

with care

Before you put your lawnmower and

weedeater away for the season, run low or

drain the petrol. Petrol goes off and come

spring your old petrol can adversely affect

the performance of your equipment and

block up your filters.

Cover outdoor furniture and secure

items, such as trampolines, which may get

blown around in strong winds.

Consider options to extend your outdoor

living all year round.

Upgrade your home

with wall tiles

Winter is here and what better time to

accomplish some DIY home improvements

which will add value to your home.

A new easy to install waterproof wall tile

has recently arrived in New Zealand. The

Styletile brand by Dumawall is lightweight

and offers seamless joins which any

homeowner can install themselves without

the added expense of a tiler.

The decorative tile selection comes in

a range of contemporary colours that

suit a variety of interior spaces including

bathrooms and shower walls, kitchen, and

food preparation areas as well as laundry

and washdown sections. Highlight your

feature walls and large areas as these tiles

can add a whole new look and feel to your

home.

This do-it-yourself-tile is quick and

provides the look of ceramic tiles with

an interlocking tongue and groove

system which can be easily cut on site

with a handsaw, circular skillsaw or

jigsaw. Styletile is easy and doesn’t need

complicated grout lines or tools or the costs

associated with ceramic tiles.

Dumafix is a high-quality, quick

hardening adhesive suitable for fixing and

installing on any surface, whether porous

or non-porous.

Have you been thinking about your next

home project? Have you been thinking

Less waste,

more purpose

It is fascinating exploring Musgroves’

sheds where there is a huge variety of

recycled and new building products. This

iconic Canterbury company has been

recycling building materials for the last

50 years and they’re really good at it. Not

only do they have an incredible range of

products that are amazingly well organised,

but they have also built themselves a

reputation for providing exceptional

service. The reviews from their many

customers (whether they be homeowners,

business owners or tradies) repeatedly refer

to the care and commitment of Musgroves’

long-serving team members who have gone

above and beyond to assist them with their

many and varied project needs.

General manager, Sue Brown, confirms

that Musgroves has thousands of repeat

customers who come from all round

the South Island (and beyond) to find

treasures for their projects. Whether it

be to look for T&G flooring for their new

build, or for a french door for their home

renovation, or for a sliding door for their

sleep out, or for doors and windows for

their child’s playhouse, or for timber beams

for a business fitout or for some roofing

materials to fix a leak, these are just a few

of the reasons why people come to visit

Musgroves.

There is no question that upcycling and

recycling is alive and well at Musgroves

in Wigram and once you’ve talked to any

member of the Musgroves team you soon

get a sense that sustainability is not just a

fad here, but rather it is in their

DNA and until you’ve paid them a

visit you can’t fully appreciate the

huge range of building materials

that Musgroves can supply you

with.

Prepare your

home for winter

Did you know that healthy trees can add

up to 20% to the value of your property?

You may not think about it

that often – but the trees on

your property are a lifetime

investment.

Carefully selected trees on your property

provide more than beauty - they increase

the value of your home. Several recent

surveys have shown that mature trees in

a well-landscaped garden can increase

the value of a house by 7 per cent to

19 per cent.

Experts indicate that a well-maintained

garden with mature trees can add

thousands to a home’s value and speed up

a house sale too.

In addition to adding significant value

at the point of sale, trees also serve very

practical and functional (as well as

aesthetic) purposes for homeowners. They

frame beautiful, relaxing, and pleasant

landscapes and help keep a house cooler

and protected from destructive winds and

weather.

Many tree care companies simply chop,

cut, and call the job done. However, after

speaking with THE TREE PEOPLE, it

quickly became apparent that they are

different. Simply put, they know your

home is your haven and will always ensure

it is treated that way.

Started by Ra and Megan Hammer in

2004, THE TREE PEOPLE knew early on

that their ethos and approach was going to

be different. They never simply chop and

cut, and instead pride themselves on the

fact that they go against the grain of how

many other arborists operate. They can

help with any tree and pride themselves on

being able to do so. They can remove large

dangerous trees safely, look after the trees

that you care about, transplant established

trees with care and offer expert advice on

all ‘things’ trees.

Speaking with passion about what he

does, chief tree hugger Ra Hammer shares,

“We had some very clear goals when we

started the business that we still ‘live by’

today. It was important to us to preserve

and maintain trees sustainably, to provide

an environment that helps our customers

to enjoy harmonious relationships with

their trees, to offer excellent affordable tree

care and to always adhere to best practice.

I am proud to say that, 16 years later, we

still live and breathe these goals”.

To remove those dangerous trees,

hard to reach over hanging branches

and to add value to your property, call

Ra, Megan and the team at THE TREE

PEOPLE today.
