sought

FEEDBACK ON the use of the

Hornby Centre is open as the site

at Kyle Park is prepared for the

$35.9 million build.

The city council opened public

consultation last week, with a

questionnaire listing activities

which could be offered at the pool

and library facility.

Greater Hornby Residents Association

chairman Marc Duff said

the suggestions were a mixed bag,

with some causing him concern.

“Some of the things, the sewing,

knitting and the adults’ board

games, are things we already have

at the Hornby Community Centre.

I’d hate to see our resources

split.”

He hoped community consultation

would ensure there were no

double-ups.

However, it was “incredibly

exciting” to see learn-to-swim

programmes, aqua jogging and

pool parties being considered.

People could also make

their own suggestions for the

submissions.

Patrols to kerb

crime extended

• By Fiona Ellis

COMMUNITY PATROLS will

extend coverage to Strowan as

concern grows over petty crime.

THe Christchurch North Community

Patrol has launched a

second vehicle, which will see

more areas covered over a longer

time frame.

Alpha Ave Neighbours

Association member Bernard

Del Rey said Strowan

residents were suffering as a

result of a crime spree.

He gave a presentation

at the Fendalton-Waimari-

Harewood Community

Board meeting last month,

headed: ‘We feel unsafe and

underserved.’

THe board decided staff would

look into environmental features

to deter crime, and the possibility

of CCTV camera installation.

Del Rey’s concerns would be

raised with police, the Christchurch

North Community Patrols

and Canterbury Neighbourhood

Support.

Adding the Strowan area to the

board’s Community Safety Initiative

would also be looked into.

Sam Hall

Staff would update the board

on these issues within six weeks

of the June 28 meeting.

Del Rey said this was a reasonable

response.

Patrol chairman Sam Hall said

before Covid-19 caused membership

of the 50-person patrol to

plummet, the patrol was out

“almost every day and

night.”

“We’re up to 25 [members],

six have just joined

up in the past week or

so. I think we’ll just keep

growing.”

The second car, a Toyota

Vanguard that cost

$20,000, meant the patrol

would be able to run general

monitoring as well as focusing on

trouble spots.

“It’s hard to know if it’s getting

worse or we’re just hearing about

it more.”

Each month the patrol made

an average 50 reports of

suspicious vehicles to police,

and 20 reports of suspicious

behaviour.

Papanui police did not respond

to Western News’ request for

comment.

Fungi Farm opens

ON TRACK: Earthworks on the site of the new Hornby

Centre on the corner of Waterloo and Smarts Rd, Hornby.

Group submission possible

• From page 1

It was important for the council

to staff the centre with locals who

would have more pride in the

facility because they would see it

as their own, he said.

Ease of access was also important.

He had made an individual

submission and thought all people

who lived in the area should

do so if they planned to use the

facility, he said.

“You can’t complain if you

don’t fill it in.”

The Greater Hornby Residents

Association would discuss a possible

group submission at its next

meeting.

City council head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox said

61 submissions had been received

as of 11am on Tuesday.

The questionnaire would

gauge the level of demand for

various activities in the community.

“[It is] are not a confirmed list

of what will be offered when the

facility opens in 2022,” Cox said.

“If there are concerns around

the duplication of services, our

preference is to have a direct

conversation to understand the

concerns.”

Information and support would

be given to locals who were interested

in applying for a job at the

new centre, he said.

Earthworks for the project were

on track to be completed by mid-

July, with the build set to take

place in spring.

“We expect to have the

building contractor confirmed by

early August, and construction

on the building should start in

September.”

A MUSHROOM-themed

education, play and foraging

area has officially opened in the

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor

Regeneration Area.

More than 50 adults and

children attended the Fungi

Farm’s official opening this

afternoon, complete with hearty,

wild mushroom soup, and

mushroom-themed sweets and

savouries.

Located on the corner of Evelyn

Cousins Ave and River Rd,

Richmond, the Fungi Farm will

feature six different species of

edible native and exotic mushrooms

for foragers, 33 manmade

mushroom carvings and

art installations by local artists,

engaging nature play pieces, and

interactive signage to educate

people about the fast-growing

fungi.

The project is an initiative of

the Riverlution Collective and

driven by the Richmond Community

Garden.

Project proponent spokesperson

Hayley Guglietta says the

overwhelming encouragement

and support they’d received from

the community had been inspiring.

“People have been really interested

in this project and it’s great

to finally be able to open it to

INTERACTIVE: Young and those young at heart can enjoy

the benefits on Richmond’s new Fungi Farm.

the community,” she said.

“There might not be any

mushrooms growing yet, but the

place will come alive in spring

and autumn.”

“We wanted to create an

engaging space that not only

educates people about living

with nature, but is also somewhere

that a family can spend

a whole day here, next to the

Ōtākaro Avon River, enjoying

the regeneration area.”

Guglietta says the intention is

to hold monthly workshops with

the community to explore different

methods of growing a range

of different mushroom species.

Residential red zone consultative

group, Te Tira Kāhikuhiku,

awarded the project a grant of

$19,600 from the Red Zones

Transitional Use Fund, to help

bring the project to life.

Sleeping on hospital

floor could soon be

a thing of the past

THE SUPPORT people

of mothers giving birth at

Christchurch Women’s Hospital

often resort to sleeping on the

floor if staying overnight.

It is why the Māia Health

Foundation aims to raise

$44,000 to buy 20 specialist

chairs, providing a comfortable

place for them to stay alongside a

new mother and baby.

Currently, a support person

can stay at the hospital but their

choices of where to sleep are

limited.

They are provided with either

an uncomfortable chair or a

vinyl mattress on the floor.

“That’s not an ideal solution

and it’s not very welcoming,”

said Norma Campbell, director

of midwifery for the Canterbury

and West Coast District Health

Board.

Each year more than 5500

women give birth at the

women’s hospital. It is the South

Island’s largest secondary/

tertiary hospital and the hub

for the Fetal Maternal Medicine

Service.

The specialised chairs the

foundation is fundraising for are

designed for hospital environments.

During the day they can be

used as a sofa chair for visitors

or a breastfeeding chair for the

mother, and in the evening they

convert into a lie-flat bed.

“The staff at Christchurch

Women’s Hospital go above and

beyond every day to care for our

community’s newest families.

It’s time we cared for them and

gave our new mums, babies and

families all the support we can

in those first few days together,”

said foundation chief executive

Michael Flatman.

UNCOMFORTABLE:

Canterbury and

West Coast

District Health

board director of

midwifery Norma

Campbell with the

current sleeping

arrangements for

support people of

women giving birth

at Christchurch

Women’s Hospital. ​

Campbell said demand for

their services was “incredibly

high.”

The maternity ward on

level five has 45 beds and is 80

to 90 per cent full most of the

time.

“At many times we have been

over capacity as there are increasing

numbers of women and

babies with complex needs or

who are impacted by underlying

health conditions,” Campbell

said.

“These women need our

support and they need their

own support – and it may seem

simple, but these chairs will help

provide that.”

Nurse supports

fundraiser for

new chairs in

maternity ward

WHEN NURSE Joeann

Pagulayan goes to work at

Christchurch Women’s Hospital,

she sees an unwelcoming

situation.

Pagulayan spends most of her

time on level five, looking after

new mothers and babies.

Having been in the same

situation herself as a patient, she

finds it difficult to witness those

supporting the new mothers

either sleeping on the hospital

floor, or on uncomfortable chairs

if staying overnight.

It is why she is supporting the

Māia Health Foundation’s bid to

raise $44,000 to buy 20 specialist

chairs, which can fold out into a

lie-flat bed.

Pagulayan’s husband Mark

was by her side when she was

admitted to the hospital last year

after the birth of their daughter,

Matilda.

Pagulayan became unwell

after losing a large amount of

blood during birth and needed

monitoring and support.

Her husband ended up sleeping

on a mattress on the floor.

“He just wanted to be there for

me. Because of my condition,

mobilising was a bit challenging

so he stayed all throughout those

first few days to support Matilda

and me,” she said.

“Culturally it was just

what we do – no matter how

uncomfortable his stay was. It’s

such a precious time for a new

family and I want every new

family to be able to be together,

comfortable and safe.”

Pagulayan hails from the

Philippines.

She said in her culture, and

many Asian cultures, a husband,

a partner or a support person is

expected to stay with a

Joeann Pagulayan

new mother.

“They are there to help, to take

turns looking after the baby,

giving the new mum a couple of

hours rest,” said Pagulayan.

“That little bit of support and

rest changes everything for the

mum – how they feel physically

and emotionally and how they

can connect with their new baby.

“As a nurse, I feel really bad for

those mothers who don’t have a

support person to stay with them

overnight, I see how difficult it

can be for many new mums.”

Pagulayan understood why the

current situation of providing

a mattress on the floor or an

uncomfortable chair meant

that for some, having a support

person was not an option.

“Having people on the floor is

not ideal at all for the patients or

the staff,” she said.

“Sometimes when we enter

the room, especially if it’s dark,

we don’t notice straightaway that

there’s someone on the floor.”

First purpose-built centre with trained

• From page 1

A bookworm at heart, Barsby

has witnessed the library scene

reinvent itself in the past 20 years

to keep up with the community’s

ever-changing demands.

But even as society furthers

into the digital era, she had no

concerns that people would

turn their backs on a good story,

especially now with advances like

e-books and Kindles.

“Technology is the biggest

change, a lot more people have

their own devices,” she said.

“The earthquakes changed the

demographic of this area quite a

lot. There used to be mainly older

adults or young families, but

people moved from town out to

the suburbs.”

Spreydon Library was the first

purpose-built centre in the city

to be staffed by the city council

with trained librarians. Most

libraries at the time were run by

volunteers.

It first opened in 1929 from

the remodelled Borough Council

Chambers at the current

Barrington St site as a volunteerled

community library.

It continued operating that

way until the city council started

a new network of suburban

public libraries following a boom

in book stocks, starting with

Spreydon from 1971.

The rebuild cost $52,061, with

the library initially housing

17,000 books.

Under city council control,

Christchurch City Libraries is

now a network of 21 modern

THROUGH THE DECADES: Spreydon Library in the 1940s

(left) and 1950s and how it looks today in Barrington St.

libraries across the city.

All of this would not be

possible without the passion

and efforts of librarian Ernest

Bell, who campaigned to make

libraries public and to improve

reading in the community more

than 70 years ago.

“If every library was its

own little community run by

themselves, they wouldn’t have

the resources or funding,” said

Barsby.

“Now we have a huge

collection that floats between all

libraries.”

For library assistant Joanne

Rowe, the Spreydon facility is

more than just a library - it is a

place of refuge.

Over time the library has

developed a strong bond with

the community through daily

activities, and events such as

technology help groups, musical

performances, book clubs, or JP

services.

But Rowe said being

sandwiched between Hillmorton

Hospital and Salvation Army

addiction services created some

unique challenges.

As a warm and dry place to go,

the library also attracted the odd

homeless person.

“Sometimes they’ll spend the

whole day there because they just

want to be amongst people to

talk,” she said.

(Below) – Barbara Moorhouse cuts a cake to mark

Spreydon Library’s 25th anniversary in 1996.

“Some people come in

intoxicated, in broad daylight.

“Some people are going through

mental health issues; they could

be having a bad day but they

happen to be in the library that

day, so you do what you can to

help.”

The library has been through

some trials and tribulations itself.

It was threatened with closure

when South Library was being

built until the city council did a

U-turn.

Because Spreydon Library was

already a huge part of residents’

lives, they rallied together and

produced a 3500 signature

petition against the proposal.

Having worked in a

number of libraries prior to

Spreydon, including central

city, New Brighton and Sumner,

Barsby was glad their efforts paid

off.

As a passionate reader,

especially in the fantasy genre,

it meant she could continue

working in a place she loved and

be surrounded by thousands of

book titles every day.

•Spreydon Library is

marking the occasion with

a free social morning tea to

share stories next Tuesday

from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

innovative, yet warm and approachable.

Compassion underpins their pharmacy

philosophy, which is every client is treated

closely with your doctors and healthcare

professionals, such as the example of their

to who is part of their healthcare team. A

fact which is never taken for granted.

patients insights into what to expect

from an array of treatments. Mitchell

has an interest in healthy aging, exercise

nutrition and the immune system.

Mitchell often works alongside the

doctors to provide practitioner only

ranges. He often sits down with patients

to discuss their medicine regimes and talk

about functional medicine ideas that may

improve their health.

At Kiwi Pharmacy, they actively

research new ideas and products to best

provide quality options for their patients.

They offer specific skin care regimes to

compliment doctors’ prescriptions for

acne, rosacea and potential skin cancer

spots. They have specific nutritional

supplements that can assist in mood, sleep

and energy. They specialise in options

related to hay fever, over and above

standard antihistamines.

They do their best to provide testers and

giveaways to their clients where they can

try the product first to feel a benefit.

When you stop by ask about their

pharmacy loyalty clubs to reward their

patients for their loyalty.

A primary goal at Kiwi Pharmacy is

to create a culture where the client feels

comfortable and understood. There

is always great reward through health

discussions, which provide an ability to

share ideas and learn from one another.

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

0800 44 00 14, or visit the RDP website at

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 80 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 now in place for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals, it’s

time to ensure you are meeting the new

standards.

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

The importance

of air quality

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.

Ventilation is the process of air exchange

to provide the necessary air quality that

meets the needs of the occupants for clean,

fresh air. Low oxygen with high carbon

dioxide causes stuffiness in the room

and occupants can feel drowsy. Invisible

harmful substances like a high content

of dust and tobacco smoke are harmful

and can cause various diseases. Even bad

smells can cause discomfort or irritate the

nervous system.

In summer, it’s easy to open windows

for cross ventilation, however as winter

approaches, we start to shut up out houses

to trap in the heat and as a result, air

quality can decline.

Ventilation includes

both the exchange of air

to the outside as well as

circulation of air within

the building. It is one of

the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable

indoor air quality in

buildings. Filtered air

supply for summer and

filtered and warmed air in

winter creates a healthy

environment in which

to live and work. In cases with poor

or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity

and dustiness levels increase. If exhaust

ventilation is not provided or it is not

effective, polluted air, smells, humidity

and harmful substances are not removed.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required air exchange for

your building requirement. 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.
