Community centre may be

rebuilt under new plan

• By Fiona Ellis

CURRENTLY HOME to a

playground and a pump track, 10

Shirley Rd may once again be the

site of a community centre after

the city council’s latest funding

allocations.

An upcoming feasibility study

could set the ball rolling on a $3

million community facility.

The old community centre at

10 Shirley Rd was demolished

following the February 22, 2011

earthquake.

The city council’s Long Term

Plan, approved on June 23,

budgets $3 million towards a

rebuild in the 2031-2032 financial

year.

It also budgets

$35,000 for a

feasibility study to

take place in the

2021-2022 financial

year.

Internet help initiative back on track

• By Fiona Ellis

JEAN BELL is among those

making use of St Albans

Neighbournet, which is back

in action over a decade after

becoming a casualty of the

September 4, 2010, earthquake.

The St Albans Residents Association

programme helps people

who do not have access to a

computer at home or who needed

help using their device.

The a 75-year-old faced a learning

curve after the passing of her

more technologically-minded

husband.

“I’m pretty new to a lot of internet

stuff,” Jean said.

“I’d sort of kept away from it

thinking it was a scary thing, but

it hasn’t been a scary thing. It

opens up the world.”

A query about internet banking

on her tablet brought her to a

Neighbournet session.

It was a helpful and welcoming

environment, she said.

Volunteer Belinda Carter

said the programme came to an

abrupt halt when the old St Albans

Community Centre it was

operating from became unusable.

“We stopped because a wall fell

out of the side of the old community

centre rather dramatically

taking monitors and bench with

it,” Belinda said.

“There was too much uncertainty

after that. The uncertainty

was the biggest challenge.”

This uncertainty ended when

the new St Albans Community

Centre opened in April this year,

providing the programme with a

new home.

In 2010 there were about 12

Neighbournet sessions per week,

but now there were just three sessions

per week.

This was not a problem, as

numbers were also low when the

programme began in the 1990s,

and would pick up with time, she

said.

“It’s great that we can do this.”

She was one of four volunteers

and more were wanted.

“With new volunteers [we can]

eventually build up hours we can

open, and numbers, and therefore

certainty of opening hours.”

A wide range of people of all

ages used their services.

“Everybody needs help

sometimes.”

Council responds to community call for centre

• From page 1

It was possible that the $3

million funding could be

brought foward if a building

plan was ready and viable, she

said.

Funding for a community

facility was not included in

the 2018 Long Term Plan and

Cotter was pleased that it was

included this

time.

“The fact

that it is

in there is

great,” she

said.

“We had to

Joanne Byrne

work really

hard and the

community

had to work really hard to get

it back.”

She thought it unlikely the

issue could fall off the council’s

to-do list again.

“The community will keep it

above the radar.”

Joanne Byrne, spokeswoman

for the 10 Shirley Road group,

helped organise a petition of

over 1200 signatures, which

was presented to the council

in May.

The community was

devastated when funding was

dropped from the last Long

Term Plan and wanted to avoid

a repeat of that scenario, she

said.

She was pleased with the

council’s response.

“It’s been a lot of work, we’re

really relieved,” Byrne said.

She hoped the project

would be brought forward as

planning progressed.

“It’s still a long way out but

I’m hoping that we’ll have a

new community centre before

2030.”

Shirley Recreational Walkers

leader Sue Lang said she hoped

a new community centre

would be built.

The site was currently

home to a pump track and

playground.

“That’s great, but it won’t

meet the needs of the whole

community,” Lang said.

However, she did not trust

the council to pull through on

the project.

“A decade is a long time to

wait for when you’ve already

waited a decade.”

CHANGES: The site

of the old Shirley

Community Centre, 10

Shirley Rd. It now has a

permanent playground.

Nominations for

civic awards open

RECEIVING A Christchurch

Civic Award last year was a big

deal for the young founders of The

Conscious Club.

They run events promoting an

ethical sustainable lifestyle.

Founding member Selina

Faimalo said the award was special

because it came from the community.

“It was quite overwhelming for all

of us to get that recognition from

the community – that people felt

we’d made an impact and would

nominate us.

The founding members met on

social media platform Instagram

two years ago.

Since then Ms Faimalo and Helen

Griffiths, Kophie Su’a Hulsbosch,

Lucinda Ferguson and Pip Currie

have hosted more than 30 events,

including markets, festivals, workshops

and concerts.

Nominations for the 2021

Christchurch Civic Awards are now

open.

THE CYCLE for Sub-Sahara, a

40-hour famine event was held

recently at Medbury School.

Wheels of all shapes and

sizes dominated the grounds

of Medbury School recently as

pupils on bikes, scooters and

skateboards navigated their way

around a course to raise money

and awareness for Sub-Saharan

Africa. Pupils were sponsored

by friends and family for the

World Vision event, raising

more than $7000 for the charity.

Assistant principal Amos

Pilgrim, Medbury’s head of

community service, together

with the support of the student

head of community service,

Nisal Pathirana, and four year 8

house leaders, Drew Edmundson,

Jack Wyllie, Otis Wheeler

and Jack Howard, were instrumental

in planning the event for

all boys from years 1 to 8 and

their teachers.

The fall-out from Covid-19

is compounding the damage

that extreme poverty, climate

change and decades of conflict

have already done to children’s

lives and futures in sub-Saharan

Africa.

The current amount raised

is more than $7000 and

climbing.

The proceeds of scrap metal from

wine caps and can tabs dropped of

at the St Albans Community Centre

will go to Kidney Kids NZ, not

Kiwi Kids NZ as stated last week.

Keeping the old post office lines

• By Bea Gooding

“SOME PEOPLE preserve family

heirlooms, some people preserve

cakes, but why? If we stop doing

these things then I think we’ve

lost the plot.”

Those are the words of George

Wealleans, who has mastered the

art of preservation as founder

and inaugural president of the

Ferrymead Post and Telegraph

Historical Society.

It is why the 75-year-old is in

charge of the group responsible

for conserving the country’s

communications’ history in

a 1920s post office building,

nestled within Ferrymead

Heritage Park.

“If I don’t, then who’s going

to?” said Wealleans.

“It’s partly ego, partly a desire

to preserve our history. You

might as well preserve something

you’re keen on.”

The society collects and

restores vintage telegraphy,

telephone and switching systems

mainly from the New Zealand

Post Office and formerly Telecom

New Zealand.

The items, sourced from all

over the country, are in working

order, allowing visitors to get a

feel for what life was like before

the digital age.

The exhibition may look like a

CALLING: George Wealleans with one of the old telephones in the Ferrymead Post and

Telegraph Historical Society building.

museum, but it has not

strayed too far from its original

purpose – the building still

provides postal agency services

and philatelic (postage stamp)

sales.

Wealleans and a few others

established the society in 1977

during a time when the country’s

morse system and telegraph

service were closing down in

1963 and 1988, respectively.

One of the members already

worked at the Ferrymead

tramways, so the heritage park

was seen as the perfect location

to keep the practice alive.

Otherwise, it would have

“ended up on shelves in a shed.”

“When some of the equipment

out there was ready to be

taken out, we wanted to see it

preserved. So I called a meeting

with post officers in town and

established a group,” he said.

“[Now] we have been tasked, or

dumped, with the idea of looking

after this stuff on behalf of the

people of New Zealand.

“But there’s no benefit of

looking after this stuff other than

our hobby.”

Born in Oamaru, Wealleans

was raised in Timaru by his

uncle and aunt when his father

left the picture.

In the 23 years that followed,

he completed school certificate

and locked in his first job at the

Timaru Post Office at 16-yearsold

as a trainee telephone

mechanician.

In search of love, he

relocated to Christchurch in

1971 to get hitched, eventually

building a house, raising three

children of his own, and starting

a new role at the telephone

exchange.


NOR’WEST NEWS Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

of communication open

“We’re still at the same address

with the same phone number.”

Wealleans loved the idea

of being able to help facilitate

communication between others.

The biggest change he

witnessed over time was cell

phones. But as someone who

championed communication,

they were “abhorrent,” as they

created too many distractions.

He also prided himself on accuracy

– his boss once said his

wire tying and lacing skills were

always neat. “It’s the technology

too that got me hooked, and

the data from one computer to

another. The theory of how a cell

phone works is just as important

as the piece of equipment,” he

said.

“Each component leads to a

core computer, then it goes out

through a cellular network and

up to a satellite, passing bits of

messages, then back down to say,

the phone of your mate who just

happens to be having lunch in

San Francisco.”

But after 31 years in the

office equipment.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

industry, it all changed when he

was made redundant in 1992 –

two years after deciding to take

a decade-long hiatus as president

of the historical society.

He spent the next 17 years after

that working in a factory making

plastic bags before he “weaseled”

his way back into the society’s

presidential role about 10 years

ago.

“In every job I’ve had, there’s

been an element of being your

own master,” said Wealleans.

“Obviously you’re following

the instructions. Like at the

plastic bag machine, you’re given

instructions on how long to

make the bag, but they didn’t tell

you how fast to make it.

“So I fine-tuned the machine a

bit to get it going at say, 65 bags a

minute, instead of 50.”

Wealleans is at the

heritage park nearly every day,

and he would not have it any

other way.

But a major regret was not

becoming an architect after

nearly failing a technical exam in

high school – a dream that

grew momentum the second

he received his first Meccano

set.

Said Wealleans: “I wouldn’t

go as far as saying I’m an artist

but I can visualise things from a

technical perspective, put it on

paper and draw it, like a circuit

diagram. I’ve always treated my

job as a hobby because I love my

work. I’m able to share all my

experiences with a whole lot of

people, even those who aren’t

ex-post office.”

Creative hub set for two-year trial in Roy Stokes Hall

• By Bea Gooding

A NEW creative community hub

will make a permanent home in

New Brighton if a two-year trial

is met with success.

Economic development agency

ChristchurchNZ, which own

Roy Stokes Hall, has agreed to

back the pilot project run by the

Life in Vacant Spaces trust.

This follows

calls last year to

make the

hall available for

more

community

groups, artists

and events

Rachael

Shiels

which is currently

only being

leased to the

Christchurch Circus Trust.

“It’s great to have

[ChristchurchNZ] on board,

it gives it the best chances of

success,” LiVS director Rachael

Shiels said.

“The hall space is one of the

biggest spaces we have in New

Brighton, so as a community asset,

it’s really valuable.”

LiVS partners with landowners

and the community to activate

vacant property across the city,

developing short-term uses for

the space while a permanent

solution was sought.

If projects like the creative

PILOT: If a two-year trial to transform Roy Stokes Hall into a creative community hub goes

community hub were successful

over a period of time, they could

be made permanent.

ChristchurchNZ urban

development general

manager Cath Carter said

the organisation will have a

supporting role in the next two

years and will co-ordinate the

initial set-up.

This includes helping to secure

funding for any hall upgrades,

outlining a financial model for

the project to be self-sufficient,

and determining the ownership,

governance and operation

structure.

The trial will also determine if

the hall needs upgrading and the

best uses for it.

“The intention is to make the

hall a permanent creative hub,”

said Shiels.

The hall can host between 500

to 600 people and sits on the old

Central New Brighton School

site on Seaview Rd. The land was

purchased off the Ministry of

Education in 2018.

Since the school closed in 2015

as a result of the Canterbury

earthquakes, the hall’s future has

been in limbo.

The site itself, however, was

recently purchased by property

developer DGM Group, which

plans to start building 65 new

homes there in spring.

Shiels said if the circus trust

and residents did not advocate

for the hall to stay in the community,

it would have been

purchased by the developer,

slimming the chances of a hub

coming to fruition.

“The hall was originally

founded and supported by

the community, so it was

really important that it was saved

and given back to [them],” she

said.

The hub could be up and running

in five weeks’ time if all

goes to plan.

So far, “a real mix” of local

arts groups and social needs

organisations have reached out

to the trust.

Said Shiels: “We’re reviewing

the expressions of interest in the

next two weeks, then we’ll be

reaching out to them, putting

some things into action and

playing around with dynamics of

the hall.”

TOP JOB: Denis Aberhart at a press conference with Cricket NZ

operations manager John Reid to announce his appointment as coach.

Stepping out of the game after 50 years

• By Fiona Ellis

FORMER BLACK Caps coach

Denis Aberhart is stepping down

from an educational career

spanning nearly 50 years.

Pupils and staff at Our Lady

of Victories School in Upper

Riccarton will farewell their

principal at an assembly today.

From classroom to cricket

pitch, his process for success has

been the same.

“You want your school to run,

so you put your team together

accordingly, and then you put a

team together to deliver on that,”

Aberhart said.

“Coaching is about providing

the environment, culture and

resources so that people can be

the best that they can be.

“I actually think that we’re

coaches rather than teachers.”

Aberhart, 68, began teaching

in 1975, but took a three-year

break from his educational

career between 2001 and 2003 to

coach the Black Caps.

He enjoyed both careers

but thought he made the

bigger impact in the classroom,

he said.

As a principal, he said he was

helping shape the future of his

pupils and society.

“The role that a principal does

is far more important than the

role a sports coach does.”

Pupils played cricket and other

sports at Our Lady of Victories,

Aberhart said.

“Sports is a good healthy

activity for kids to be involved

in. It teaches great life skills.”

He highlighted teamwork and

sportsmanship as valuable skills

the pupils learned.

Aged 21, he first began

teaching because he felt it was a

career suited to his personality.

“I enjoyed the people side of

things, I felt that it was a skill

that I had. “I enjoyed school.

I had good teachers, so it’s

something I thought I’d like to

do.”

In 1983, he began his first job

WISE HAND: Back Caps captain Stephen Fleming gets some advice from

his coach Denis Aberhart during a practice session.

as principal at St Joseph’s School

in Lyttelton.

It was a small school and he

was still a teacher as well as

principal.

From there, he became

principal at the old St Paul’s

School in Dallington, then

Our Lady of Fatima School in

Mairehau, before taking on his

current role in 2015.

A Catholic himself, he felt

Catholic schools focused on an

element which state schools did

not.

“That is that spiritual

dimension, which I think is

really important.”

The best part of his role was

seeing pupils trying their best

with help from teachers.

“The highlights are really the

staff you work with and the kids.

“Those are the things I’ll

always look back on and hold

dear.”

Uncertainty was the biggest

challenge of being a principal,

he said.

“You come to school and

you don’t know what you’ll be

dealing with.”

He has faced events such as the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

the 2019 terrorist attack and the

Covid-19 pandemic.

“They’re not necessarily school

issues but you have to deal with

them at school. School really

reflects your community and the

things that are happening in it.”

Technological changes aside,

the biggest change he saw over

the course of his career was how

it became common for both

parents to work outside the

home.

“There’s sometimes not that

same engagement with the

families as there was in the past.

“Teachers are probably

expected to do a lot more in loco

parentis but in the end, the kids

are the same.”

Starting out in his career, his

mission statement was “to get

more and more out of kids rather

than put more and more into

kids,” he said.

“That’s still the same. You

want kids to learn rather than be

taught.”

Seeing former students grow

up and contribute to society

with good jobs and children was

always rewarding, he said.

“It’s great, especially if they

remember you fondly.”

He felt now was the right time

to leave.

“I think the school’s in good

heart, we’ve got an increased roll

and quality staff and we’ve just

had some building work done.

“We were in the mid-120s and

now we have 236 (pupils).

“We’ve got a really good

cultural mix, passionate hard

working staff and a school

community that supports what’s

going on. It’s ready for a new

person to come in and take

over.”

The next principal, Collette

Sandilands, who is currently

acting principal at Sumner

School, will step into the role at

the start of term three.

Top of Aberhart’s to do list in

his retirement is spending time

with his two grandchildren.

He is also interested in taking

up a new role in education

or cricket, and could also see

himself leading tour groups

around wineries.

“I’d like to keep doing

something else on a part time

basis, something to keep me out

of trouble.”

With a dual power pack, it won’t

give up before you do.

“Good stories surprise us; they make

concepts in a way that a PowerPoint

crammed with bar graphs never can.”

- Jo Lazauskes and Shane Snow, The

Storytelling Edge.

Through May and June, the Real Estate

fraternity (Harcourts gold included) usually

share their stories of success. Full pages in

our daily papers and magazines, billboard

advertisements and various social media

posts to highlight the accomplishments

of numerous top performers. These often

include (at my last count) at least six

different top twenties, each very deserving

of their recognition!

acknowledged as the number one office

900 others, for the fourth year running. It’s

an achievement worth celebrating and one

that’s grown from very humble origins.

origin story to the team, and it reminded

me of the years of work that preceded the

minutes of glory.

today - although it once included the West

Coast and Wanaka) and was first formed

in 1998. We purchased the Papanui office

less than six months prior to the franchise

being formed and the leap to take on three

more was an act of blind faith and trust. This

was helped enormously by the support of

our long term mentor Stephen Collins. He

believed strongly in playing life forward and

backing the underdogs (which is what we

definitely were). His belief in us and what

we could accomplish sustained us in the

darkest of moments, and we can never

thank him enough.

Our initial start saw us take on a company

with only five consultants (the majority

having walked out the door when we

walked in), and only 17 listings between us.

With more debt than we could imagine but

a deeply held desire to succeed, we worked

to build the business and our profiles.

There were four partners then (as there is

again now) and although two have since

moved on to other ventures, I am grateful

to both of them for their commitment over

those early years. To be brutally honest with

you – what I do remember from those years

is a bit of a blur.

quietly at first but it soon became loudly

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Customers pleased with honest,

reliable vehicle servicing

Having your vehicle regularly serviced is

key to getting the best out of it in terms of

fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear

on expensive parts.

Kevin, who owns and operates Parker

Automotive in Birmingham Drive,

provides full vehicle servicing to keep your

vehicle running smoothly, as well as WOFs,

batteries and tyres.

He also carries out all mechanical repairs,

including cam belt replacement, suspension

work, clutch and gearbox repairs, only

repairing what’s necessary, and without

charging the earth.

He has owned the business since 2007,

and over that time has established a loyal

customer base – people that rely on him

to give them sound advice and provide

professional care and servicing for their

vehicles.

Customers come from across the city,

Spreydon, Hillmorton, Riccarton, Halswell

and Middleton areas, and the business has

received many positive Google reviews

from customers. Below are some examples:

I have been going to Parker Automotive

for the last eight years and I cannot fault the

I know it’s not always about price but

sometimes, when it comes to vehicle repairs,

you just want a perceived good deal and work

carried out by someone who seems to care.

Kevin came recommended by a friend, and

what a great recommendation. His work was

clean, efficient, fast and came in under what

I thought it was going to cost. So we took my

partner’s car there two days later and that

too was completed faster than we expected

and at an almost unbelievable cost.
