• By Bea Gooding<br />

RESIDENTS MAY still have<br />

time to convince the city council<br />

to retain a piece of land for a<br />

community space in Halswell<br />

instead of selling it.<br />

The city council is yet to decide<br />

on whether it will sell land no<br />

longer required at 66 Quaifes Rd<br />

after it was purchased to develop<br />

a stormwater retention and detention<br />

basin.<br />

A number of affordable housing<br />

providers, including Kāinga<br />

Ora, have already shown interest<br />

in buying the site to develop as a<br />

whole.<br />

But the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board wants<br />

at least a third of the surplus land<br />

to remain in city council ownership<br />

following calls to save it for<br />

the community, such as a hall.<br />

The city council always intended<br />

More land was acquired than<br />

Six years ago I spent several days at Birdlings Flat,<br />

an area I had not visited for over twenty years.<br />

It was a visit that would influence my painting<br />

in many ways. It added to my lexicon of places<br />

beside the sea that I often draw upon when<br />

working.<br />

Visually I was inspired by the shape of the hills<br />

and the conversations between sea, sky and land.<br />

I appreciated the austere elemental geology of<br />

the place. Not to get too esoteric about it, but I<br />

felt comfortable being uncomfortable there.<br />

Since then I have visited various parts of Banks<br />

Peninsula on a regular basis and each time I have<br />

come away with something new to explore via<br />

painting.<br />

Unlike earlier paintings these works are not<br />

seeking to capture or convey these landscapes.<br />

They are certainly shaped by it, but essentially<br />

are by-products of time spent walking, biking, or<br />

simply sitting and looking at local places.<br />

Cabbage trees to rise again<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

OLIVER LEWIS’ passion for<br />

cabbage trees prompted him to<br />

start a fundraiser to buy 24 of the<br />

robust-trunked and sword-leafed<br />

trees.<br />

His goal: To replace the ones<br />

poisoned along the causeway<br />

section of the Coastal Pathway<br />

in 2018.<br />

Last week, in four hours, a<br />

fundraising goal of $633.60<br />

was reached. In total, $778 was<br />

raised, exceeding the amount<br />

needed to buy the 24 cabbage<br />

trees from Trees for Canterbury.<br />

Heathcote Ward city councillor<br />

Sara Templeton and <strong>May</strong>or<br />

Lianne Dalziel have both supported<br />

the fundraiser.<br />

Lewis, who lives in St Martins,<br />

started the fundraiser via a<br />

Givealittle page on <strong>May</strong> 13.<br />

Lewis, a freelance journalist,<br />

reported on the 2018 poisoning<br />

when he was working for The<br />

Press, calling it a “cold case cabbage<br />

tree killing”. The offender<br />

has not been found.<br />

“I’ve always felt miffed that<br />

someone had the audacity to<br />

poison the cabbage trees and on<br />

petty grounds,” said Lewis.<br />

“They should be replaced,<br />

protected and respected.”<br />

The reason behind Lewis’ fundraiser<br />

is his long-standing like<br />

of cabbage trees. “I have worked<br />

in Marlborough before, and<br />

along the east coast the cabbage<br />

trees stand out among the gold<br />

of the tussocks and the rust of<br />

the railways. They are beautiful<br />

trees,” he said.<br />

“They’re pioneering, they’re<br />

rugged – I quite like them.”<br />

Lewis said that unfortunately<br />

many people dislike the trees due<br />

to their habit of dropping tough<br />

leaves that often then get tangled<br />

up in lawnmowers.<br />

Lewis has since bought the<br />

trees and there will be a planting<br />

day in June in collaboration with<br />

the Christchurch Coastal Pathway<br />

Group and any volunteers<br />

who would like to help out.<br />

Pathway group chairman of<br />

the Hanno Sander said: “We’re<br />

excited that Oli’s fundraising to<br />

reinstate the trees has been so<br />

successful, with broad support<br />

from the community including<br />

the mayor.<br />

“We’re looking forward to a<br />

working bee where we’ll plant<br />

several hundred natives along<br />

Beachville Rd and the cabbage<br />

trees in their original locations.”<br />

Lewis still hopes to solve the<br />

mystery. Last week he dropped<br />

100 leaflets around Mt Pleasant,<br />

asking if anyone knew anything.<br />

If you have any information<br />

about the poisoning of the trees,<br />

email Oliver on oli.lewis720@<br />

gmail.com<br />

ON THE CASE: Oliver Lewis has raised over $700 to<br />

replace cabbage trees on the causeway that were<br />

poisoned.<br />

Dreams realised in spite of disability<br />

NOT EVEN a disability could<br />

get in Charlotte Holt’s way<br />

when it comes to fulfilling her<br />

dreams.<br />

The 18-year-old Villa Maria<br />

College student has earned a<br />

$10,000 scholarship towards<br />

fees to study law and arts at<br />

Canterbury University.<br />

Charlotte was diagnosed with<br />

mild to moderate hypotonic<br />

cerebral palsy at six-monthsold.<br />

A lack of tone in the<br />

muscles makes everyday movements<br />

difficult and exhausting.<br />

She said her strong sense of<br />

social justice and empathy for<br />

others was attributed to her<br />

time at the Champion Centre as<br />

a young child.<br />

“Perhaps from my time at the<br />

Champion Centre and my love<br />

of public speaking, I gravitated<br />

towards studying social justice<br />

and law at university,” she said.<br />

“It’s an opportunity to give<br />

back.”<br />

Based in Burwood, the<br />

Champion Centre is a nonprofit<br />

organisation providing<br />

early intervention for babies<br />

and children born prematurely,<br />

or with disabilities.<br />

Because Charlotte was<br />

continuously surrounded by<br />

children who also had a disability,<br />

she was not treated any<br />

differently.<br />

Her mother Jane said she<br />

was a very relaxed, but “floppy”<br />

baby.<br />

“We never put a label on<br />

Charlotte’s condition,” she said.<br />

Holt initially attended Milestones<br />

Centre for three months<br />

before she started at the Champion<br />

Centre at nine-monthsold,<br />

mainly with her mother.<br />

They would go in once a week<br />

and then eventually fortnightly<br />

until she was nearly two at the<br />

end of 2004.<br />

“While at the Champion<br />

Centre, Charlotte became very<br />

able with her fine motor skills.<br />

As well as sessions at the centre,<br />

we took her swimming a lot,”<br />

Jane said.<br />

“The staff that work there are<br />

incredible, very dedicated and<br />

amazing. Early intervention is<br />

so important, it’s your lifeline.”<br />

Charlotte’s nanas often came<br />

to the sessions as well.<br />

“My mother often found<br />

it quite emotional when she<br />

visited the centre, seeing what<br />

all these amazing children were<br />

achieving,” said Charlotte’s<br />

father Chris.<br />

“Charlotte definitely developed<br />

her personality and talent<br />

from the Champion Centre, she<br />

received a lot of attention. She<br />

has become very independent.”<br />

Growing up, Charlotte<br />

danced, sang and played sport.<br />

She then joined her two older<br />

sisters at Villa Maria, where<br />

she became an esteemed public<br />

speaker and achieved her grade<br />

7 trinity speech and drama<br />

exam.<br />

Last year, Charlotte applied<br />

for a tertiary scholarship<br />

through her father’s work at the<br />

Lyttelton Port Company that<br />

was available for children of<br />

employees to apply for.<br />

Through a selection process,<br />

she was awarded the scholarship<br />

which will be used towards<br />

university fees over the next<br />

two years.<br />

SUCCESS: Charlotte Holt<br />

has earned a $10,000<br />

scholarship that will go<br />

towards fees to study law<br />

and arts at Canterbury<br />

• From page 1<br />

Waltham School is part of<br />

Canterbury Neighbourhood Support’s<br />

school programme.<br />

Co-ordinator Elissa Smith<br />

organised the visit so the pupils<br />

could learn about keeping safe<br />

in your community, the benefits<br />

of knowing your neighbours and<br />

being prepared for emergencies.<br />

“The focus of the visit is for<br />

children to have fun [and] at the<br />

same time, learning that the role<br />

of the police is to help and protect<br />

us,” she said.<br />

“This is important for children;<br />

they need assurance that adults<br />

are sorting out things that seem<br />

scary to children.<br />

“Some children have a fear<br />

of the police because they hear<br />

or are threatened by comments<br />

from adults that describe police<br />

in a negative way.”<br />

The children were given an opportunity<br />

to ask questions.<br />

“We were impressed with<br />

the range of questions and<br />

how well they were thought<br />

out,” said Senior Sergeant Roy<br />

Appley.<br />

Pupils asked if the police<br />

worked at night, why the lights<br />

are blue and red and one of the<br />

most respectful questions was “if<br />

it’s such a dangerous job, why did<br />

you choose to do it?”<br />

Canterbury Neighbourhood<br />

Support runs the programme in<br />

14 primary schools in Christchurch.<br />

It is a leadership opportunity<br />

for students.<br />

They choose and lead projects<br />

in their school that cover<br />

information from emergency<br />

services, projects that benefit the<br />

local environment or develop<br />

empathy and community spirit in<br />

children.<br />

The long-term goal of the<br />

programme is that these children<br />

will be active members of their<br />

community and developing the<br />

Neighbourhood Support concept<br />

of looking after your neighbours<br />

to create safer, and more resilient<br />

communities.<br />

Retirement village workers recognised for achievements<br />

THREE SPREYDON retirement<br />

village workers are still floating<br />

after winning not one, but<br />

four awards between them at<br />

the Heritage Lifecare Prestige<br />

Awards.<br />

The leadership traits of Caroline<br />

Doole, Gail Kerse<br />

and Urmee Rahman were the<br />

foundations that the team at<br />

George Manning Lifecare and<br />

Village relied on during the past<br />

year.<br />

Heritage Lifecare has more<br />

than 48 care homes and villages<br />

throughout New Zealand, and<br />

staff gathered to celebrate their<br />

achievements in spite of a challenging<br />

2020.<br />

Kerse was recognised for her<br />

“exceptional leadership” and<br />

received the care home manager<br />

of the year award.<br />

She was acknowledged for<br />

building a cohesive team and<br />

promoting positive work culture<br />

with an approachable leadership<br />

“I was really blown away,” she<br />

said.<br />

“It was really nice to get the<br />

recognition for the work we do.<br />

I was so proud of our residents<br />

ESTUARY MATTERS<br />

Huge turnout for planting day<br />

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust is a non-profit<br />

organisation formed to protect one of New Zealand’s<br />

most important coastal wetlands. Each week, board<br />

members will discuss matters regarding the estuary,<br />

its rich history and what makes it unique. This week<br />

Tanya Jenkins writes about a successful planting day at<br />

Charlesworth Reserve<br />

and how they followed directions<br />

to the letter.”<br />

Doole was the supreme winner<br />

of the a better everyday award,<br />

and was care home and village<br />

support person of the year.<br />

It was because of her<br />

outstanding attitude, skills,<br />

knowledge, and approach that<br />

has seen her become an expert<br />

across both finance and rostering<br />

systems.<br />

Said Doole: “I was already<br />

overwhelmed at being a finalist,<br />

but to then go on to win these<br />

awards had me speechless.”<br />

Rahman, George Manning’s<br />

clinical manager, was awarded<br />

clinical services manager of<br />

the year for her exceptional<br />

leadership qualities and clinical<br />

expertise.<br />

Due to all the work she did<br />

during the Covid-19 response,<br />

she was asked to input into the<br />

Canterbury District Health<br />

Board’s Covid-19 toolkit.<br />

Rahman said it felt amazing<br />

to win the award but was very<br />

quick to point out that it was a<br />

team effort.<br />

“Without our incredible team<br />

this wouldn’t have been possible.<br />

It was a total collaboration from<br />

top to bottom, with everyone involved<br />

working to the extreme,”<br />

she said.<br />

Kerse said the awards meant<br />

a huge amount to everyone at<br />

George Manning.<br />

IT IS 10am on Sunday, <strong>May</strong> 16,<br />

and volunteers are streaming<br />

into the Charlesworth Reserve<br />

car park ready with spades,<br />

gloves and enthusiasm.<br />

Eighteen-month-old Hugo<br />

carried by mum Merodie Rose<br />

was keen to show me his wee<br />

spade and the plant he was going<br />

to plant in the reserve.<br />

Fabulous to see 85 keen locals<br />

arrive to place 1400 native tree<br />

NATURE: More than 80 volunteers flocked to<br />

Charlesworth Reserve to plant 1400 native trees as part<br />

of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust’s restoration<br />

projects.<br />

seedlings in the reserve to add to<br />

the some 120.000 already planted<br />

here since the start of this wetland<br />

restoration project in 2004.<br />

Even more encouraging was<br />

the number of families present<br />

this year (our 17th annual planting<br />

event) to show the youngsters<br />

how and why we plant here.<br />

The why of course being a list<br />

of very good reasons including<br />

habitat for birds, lizards and insects,<br />

food for birds, nesting and<br />

roosting sites for birds, offsetting<br />

carbon emissions, soil erosion<br />

prevention, filtering polluted<br />

water before it enters the estuary,<br />

safe cycling and walking, providing<br />

a fantastic view for those<br />

living in view of the wetland<br />

and not in the least – a place to<br />

recharge your batteries.<br />

Walk among the creeks,<br />

ponds, observe the birdlife and<br />

KEEN HELPER: Merodie Rose and 18-month-old son<br />

Hugo with his spade ready to help planting.<br />

gain a sense of well-being that<br />

is often only achieved when you<br />

immerse yourself with nature.<br />

All in all, a successful day organised<br />

by the estuary trust with<br />

the city council park rangers and<br />

the fabulous staff of Trees for<br />

Canterbury native tree nursery.<br />

And now? We have another<br />

1400 trees to be weeded. You are<br />

welcome of course, to assist on<br />

Sundays between 2 and 4pm for<br />

this task.<br />

Prepare your<br />

home for winter<br />

Preventative home<br />

maintenance tips<br />

Check your water tanks, pipes<br />

and outside taps<br />

Consider turning off outside taps to avoid<br />

freezing and bursting. Covering water<br />

tanks and pipes is a cost-effective way of<br />

preventing this and reduces heat loss.<br />

Consider your outdoor safety<br />

and security<br />

With the evenings being darker earlier,<br />

frosts on outdoor steps, decks and pathways<br />

are a slipping hazard.<br />

Ensure you have adequate outdoor<br />

lighting, a clutter free and smooth pathway<br />

to your rubbish bins, woodpile, external<br />

garage or sleepout.<br />

Clean up spills immediately. Consider<br />

moisture-absorbent mats and handrails.<br />

Cut back your trees<br />

With the leaves already fallen, now is a<br />

good time to assess your trees and trim<br />

back any dead branches and branches<br />

overhanging your windows, spouting and<br />

roof. Check your roof for leaks, loose nails,<br />

and that it has a sound coating. Also look<br />

for moss and algae.<br />

Clear your gutters, drains and<br />

downpipes<br />

An accumulation of autumn leaves can<br />

quickly block gutters, which can lead to<br />

roof leaks, overflow and flooding. Consider<br />

protecting your gutters from birds, hail and<br />

leaves.<br />

Stagnant water may freeze resulting in<br />

gutters and downpipes coming loose or<br />

collapsing.<br />

Blocked drains are a potential health<br />

hazard, create an unpleasant odour and<br />

attracts bugs and small pests.<br />

Store your seasonal equipment<br />

with care<br />

Before you put your lawnmower and<br />

weedeater away for the season, run low or<br />

drain the petrol. Petrol goes off and come<br />

spring your old petrol can adversely affect<br />

the performance of your equipment and<br />

block up your filters.<br />

Cover outdoor furniture and secure<br />

items, such as trampolines, which may get<br />

blown around in strong winds.<br />

Consider options to extend your outdoor<br />

living all year round.<br />

Upgrade your home<br />

with wall tiles<br />

Winter is here and what better time to<br />

accomplish some DIY home improvements<br />

which will add value to your home.<br />

A new easy to install waterproof wall tile<br />

has recently arrived in New Zealand. The<br />

Styletile brand by Dumawall is lightweight<br />

and offers seamless joins which any<br />

homeowner can install themselves without<br />

the added expense of a tiler.<br />

The decorative tile selection comes in<br />

a range of contemporary colours that<br />

suit a variety of interior spaces including<br />

bathrooms and shower walls, kitchen, and<br />

food preparation areas as well as laundry<br />

and washdown sections. Highlight your<br />

feature walls and large areas as these tiles<br />

can add a whole new look and feel to your<br />

home.<br />

This do-it-yourself-tile is quick and<br />

provides the look of ceramic tiles with<br />

an interlocking tongue and groove<br />

system which can be easily cut on site<br />

with a handsaw, circular skillsaw or<br />

jigsaw. Styletile is easy and doesn’t need<br />

complicated grout lines or tools or the costs<br />

associated with ceramic tiles.<br />

Dumafix is a high-quality, quick<br />

hardening adhesive suitable for fixing and<br />

installing on any surface, whether porous<br />

or non-porous.<br />

Have you been thinking about your next<br />

Less waste,<br />

more purpose<br />

It is fascinating exploring Musgroves’<br />

sheds where there is a huge variety of<br />

recycled and new building products. This<br />

iconic Canterbury company has been<br />

recycling building materials for the last<br />

50 years and they’re really good at it. Not<br />

only do they have an incredible range of<br />

products that are amazingly well organised,<br />

but they have also built themselves a<br />

reputation for providing exceptional<br />

service. The reviews from their many<br />

customers (whether they be homeowners,<br />

business owners or tradies) repeatedly refer<br />

to the care and commitment of Musgroves’<br />

long-serving team members who have gone<br />

above and beyond to assist them with their<br />

many and varied project needs.<br />

General manager, Sue Brown, confirms<br />

that Musgroves has thousands of repeat<br />

customers who come from all round<br />

the South Island (and beyond) to find<br />

treasures for their projects. Whether it<br />

be to look for T&G flooring for their new<br />

build, or for a french door for their home<br />

renovation, or for a sliding door for their<br />

sleep out, or for doors and windows for<br />

their child’s playhouse, or for timber beams<br />

for a business fitout or for some roofing<br />

materials to fix a leak, these are just a few<br />

of the reasons why people come to visit<br />

Musgroves.<br />

There is no question that upcycling and<br />

recycling is alive and well at Musgroves<br />

in Wigram and once you’ve talked to any<br />

member of the Musgroves team you soon<br />

get a sense that sustainability is not just a<br />

fad here, but rather it is in their<br />

DNA and until you’ve paid them a<br />

visit you can’t fully appreciate the<br />

Prepare your<br />

home for winter<br />

Did you know that healthy trees can add<br />

up to 20% to the value of your property?<br />

You may not think about it<br />

that often – but the trees on<br />

your property are a lifetime<br />

investment.<br />

Carefully selected trees on your property<br />

provide more than beauty - they increase<br />

the value of your home. Several recent<br />

surveys have shown that mature trees in<br />

a well-landscaped garden can increase<br />

the value of a house by 7 per cent to<br />

19 per cent.<br />

Experts indicate that a well-maintained<br />

garden with mature trees can add<br />

thousands to a home’s value and speed up<br />

a house sale too.<br />

In addition to adding significant value<br />

at the point of sale, trees also serve very<br />

practical and functional (as well as<br />

aesthetic) purposes for homeowners. They<br />

frame beautiful, relaxing, and pleasant<br />

landscapes and help keep a house cooler<br />

and protected from destructive winds and<br />

weather.<br />

Many tree care companies simply chop,<br />

cut, and call the job done. However, after<br />

speaking with THE TREE PEOPLE, it<br />

quickly became apparent that they are<br />

different. Simply put, they know your<br />

home is your haven and will always ensure<br />

it is treated that way.<br />

Started by Ra and Megan Hammer in<br />

2004, THE TREE PEOPLE knew early on<br />

that their ethos and approach was going to<br />

be different. They never simply chop and<br />

cut, and instead pride themselves on the<br />

fact that they go against the grain of how<br />

many other arborists operate. They can<br />

help with any tree and pride themselves on<br />

being able to do so. They can remove large<br />

dangerous trees safely, look after the trees<br />

that you care about, transplant established<br />

trees with care and offer expert advice on<br />

all ‘things’ trees.<br />

Speaking with passion about what he<br />

does, chief tree hugger Ra Hammer shares,<br />

“We had some very clear goals when we<br />

started the business that we still ‘live by’<br />

today. It was important to us to preserve<br />

and maintain trees sustainably, to provide<br />

an environment that helps our customers<br />

to enjoy harmonious relationships with<br />

their trees, to offer excellent affordable tree<br />

care and to always adhere to best practice.<br />

I am proud to say that, 16 years later, we<br />

still live and breathe these goals”.<br />

To remove those dangerous trees,<br />

hard to reach over hanging branches<br />

and to add value to your property, call<br />

Prepare your<br />

home for winter<br />

Buy — sell — reside with<br />

peace of mind<br />

Any property, old or new, can have<br />

hidden problems. It is important to know<br />

the true condition of your current, or<br />

potential property.<br />

An AA House Check report can provide<br />

you with the confidence to buy or sell with<br />

no surprises.<br />

Property examinations provide detailed<br />

room by room inspections, including<br />

roof cavity, insulation, flooring, electrical,<br />

plumbing, drainage, hot water systems,<br />

roofing, decks, paths and driveways,<br />

garages, asbestos identification and more.<br />

A BOINZ accredited building surveyor<br />

can also carry out moisture checks,<br />

residential foundation inspections,<br />

earthquake damage repair assessments and<br />

methamphetamine testing.<br />

Serving Canterbury homeowners,<br />

landlords and prospective home buyers for<br />

over 15 years AA House Checks have your<br />

house inspection needs covered.<br />
