Plea for the return of

puppets stolen with car

• By Bea Gooding

A VETERAN children’s

entertainment duo who had

their car stolen last week in New

Brighton are worried the thieves

don’t know what they’ve driven

away with.

Natural Magic Pirates puppeteers

Kerry and Mary McCammon

woke up on Saturday to discover

their 1998 Subaru Impreza had

vanished from their Marine Pde

driveway, along with their life’s

work inside.

The stolen vehicle was carrying

a Magic Puppet Box containing

irreplaceable handmade puppets

the pair have used to entertain

children for the last four decades.

Mary feared the box will be

carelessly dumped. Having the

car back would be a bonus, but

returning what was inside was

what mattered most.

“We’re hoping someone will find

it and trace it back to us,” she said.

“We recognise the people who

took the car didn’t want our puppets,

but it’s hugely inconvenient

and sad for the children that we

like to do shows for.”

The McCammons have been

entertaining children around the

city since moving here in 1983.

Farm opens for fun with fungi

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

Hayley

Guglietta

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 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.

“This is the first part of a wider

vision we have. We’ve got exciting

plans to transform the area

from Swanns Rd to North Avon

Rd into an educational, familyfriendly

art trail and nature play

area that weaves among the old,

established gardens and fruit

trees that we want to continue

tending to.”

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.

TTK is able to issue grants

of up to $20,000 for temporary

projects and activities in regeneration

areas that have been

approved by landowner Land

Information New Zealand, working

in partnership with the city

council.

TTK chairwoman Chrissie

Williams encouraged people

with a vision to use parts of the

regeneration areas to submit a

proposal to the group for consideration.

“I really encourage people

to apply to use the former

residential red zone land for

community initiatives,” Williams

said.

In Brief

PEDESTRIAN BRIDGES

Construction on the first

of three pedestrian bridges

in the Ōtākaro Avon River

Corridor Regeneration Area

has started two months ahead

of schedule. Work on the new

pedestrian and cycle bridge

at Hulverstone Drive started

last week, with the next two

bridges at Medway St and Snell

Pl to follow later on this year.

LIGHTS APPROVED

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board has

approved the installation of

new tennis court lighting at

South New Brighton Park. The

South Brighton Tennis Club

made the application because

there were no lights there to

begin with and during winter,

members have limited daylight

hours to train. The lights are to

be used on weekdays and will

be turned off if the court is not

in use.

CEMETERY EXTENSION

Construction has now

started on the Memorial Park

Cemetery Project in Bromley.

Work includes supply and

installation of concrete burial

beams, a gritted footpath,

planting and formation of a

new lawn area. The upgrade is

expected to be completed in

early November.

MILESTONE: Ann Barsby is reflecting on her 20 years as a library assistant

in time for Spreydon Library’s 50th anniversary. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Book lover didn’t

plan on staying at

library for so long

• By Bea Gooding

FOLLOWING THE birth of her daughter,

Avonside resident Ann Barsby didn’t plan

on sticking around for very long at her

part-time job at Spreydon Library.

A decade later, the library assistant is

taking a trip down memory lane as the

facility celebrates 50 years since it opened

in 1971.

At the time it marked a new era of public

library service in Christchurch. Spreydon

Library was the first purpose-built centre

in the city to be staffed by the city council

with trained librarians – most libraries

were run by volunteers.

Since she became a librarian 20 years

ago, Barsby has witnessed the library scene

reinvent itself in order to keep up with the

community’s ever-changing demands.

But even as society goes further into

the digital realm, Barsby has no concerns

that people will 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.”

These days it is more than just a library

– it is a place of refuge.

Over time it has developed a strong

bond with the community through daily

activities and events, such as technology

help groups, musical performances, book

clubs and JP services.

But as it is central to many services and

amenities, including Hillmorton Hospital

and Salvation Army Addiction Services,

some days are a unique challenge for

Barsby.

Sometimes she deals with intoxicated

people; other days she is a reassuring

sounding board for visitors going through

mental health and addiction issues.

As a warm and dry place to go, the

library also attracts the odd homeless

person who spends the whole day there

just to have someone to talk to.

“Mental health and addiction can be

challenging,” Barsby said.

Originally from England, Barsby moved

to Christchurch more than 30 years ago

after “meeting a Kiwi in London.”

Now, they have one daughter together

who also shares her love of the written

word.

Prior to her Spreydon post, Barsby

floated across a number of libraries,

including the central city, New Brighton

and Sumner.

She is a passionate book lover, especially

in the fantasy genre, so she found it hard

to walk away from being surrounded by

thousands of titles.

“I was only going to stay for two or three

years, but I’m still here.”

Spreydon Library first opened in 1929

in the remodelled Borough Council

Chambers at the current Barrington St site

as a volunteer-led community library.

It operated 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.

Under city council control, Christchurch

City Libraries is now a network of 21

modern libraries across the city.

All of this would not have been 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.

Now we have a huge collection that floats

between all libraries,” Barsby said.

No one day is ever the same at McMaster

& Heap Vets. Last Wednesday night we

got an urgent call that a GSP, aptly named

“Maximus Carnage” had ingested 250g

of 50% Chocolate with 250ml cream.

Max cleverly lifted the pot of cream

and chocolate off the stove and licked

ravenously at its contents while his

humans had left the kitchen. Chocolate is

very poisonous to dogs, especially the dark

variety, so we urged Max’s owners to rush

him into us before close.

On arrival Max looked excited to be in our

waiting room, saying hello to the other

waiting patients. Kirsty was the first to

see Maximus and tried to make him sick

up the chocolate with a double dose of

medication popped into the conjunctival

sac, that is supposed to induce vomiting.

Nope! Max wasn’t giving up his chocolate

feast easily. Chocolate is slowly absorbed

from the stomach so you have about 4-6

hours to make them sick.

All that ingested chocolate could have

had dire consequences for Max, so Kirsty

quickly anaesthetised Max, stomach

tubed him to remove the chocolate and

copiously lavaged his stomach to remove

every trace. She retrieved 1/2 a bucket

of chocolate. Then she poured activated

Charcoal down his tube to help soak up

any remains of chocolate. Max was placed

on intravenous fluids to help excretion

of the methyxanthine and provide

cardiovascular support. Caffeine can be

reabsorbed across the bladder wall and

this can prolong the duration of clinical

signs so fluids and frequent urinations are

highly recommended. Max was closely

monitored until he was awake and then

sent to the After Hours clinic for overnight

care.

Chocolate is directly toxic to dogs as it

contains methylxanthines - in particular

Theobromine and Caffeine. Initially dogs

may vomit, drink lots, start tremoring and

become restless and agitated. As toxicosis

progresses their hearts rate quickens,

blood pressure elevates,

they become hot, rigid

and may start to seizure.

Sometimes they can just

die from toxic levels. Other

toxic products with the

methylxanthines are cocoa

and coffee beans, diet

pills, cold medications,

Guarana, stimulant pills,

tea leaves, energy drinks

and coffee.

Dark unsweetened chocolate, cocoa

powder and cacao beans are the

worse in milligrams of methylxanthines

contained. White chocolate has virtually

no methylxanthines but is just high in fat

and could lead to pancreatitis. There is a

chocolate calculator online to work out

whether your dog has ingested a lethal

dose and needs to seek vet attention.

Max was lucky that his owners realised

what he had done and sought our help

immediately. Having 3 vets on that

Wednesday night, meant Steve and I could

cover Kirsty’s consults so she could spent

1.5 hours working on Max. The After-hours

clinic wasn’t open at this stage and he

needed gastric emptying immediately.

Puppets irreplaceable

• From page 1

Before this, they were in

England working at a theatre

company they launched in 1981.

These days the pair are best

known for performing shows

with a portable animal puppet

box at kids birthday parties,

kindergartens and KidsFest.

On the outside, Kerry appears

to be carrying the box. But on

the inside, his arms are operating

the puppets as if they were

moving by themselves.

Now all that is left is broken

glass on the driveway – evidence

of forced entry into a vehicle

that is no longer there.

Mary said since filing a police

report over the phone last Saturday

at about 8am, they have not

yet located the offender, the grey

Subaru or the puppets.

And so the search continues

for the missing family of eight

who called the box home,

including Midget the mouse,

the “grumpy prima donna frog,”

and the iconic crocodile puppet

– a crowd favourite.

“My husband got back home

at 11pm [on Friday]. He had

done a birthday party in the afternoon

so he was a bit tired and

didn’t unload the car,” she said.

“Then we woke up in the

morning and the car was gone.”

This is not the first time the

puppets and equipment.

In 2002 their house burned

down along with everything in it

after a fire started in the garage.

While it was possible to

make new puppets, the original

characters were unable to be replaced

as they were handmade,

including a wizard crafted in the

1970s.

The duo has continued the

tradition because it was a love

they shared, and it made sense

to combine their talents.

Said Mary: “My husband

and I both had a strong interest

in theatre before we met.

We’re both qualified teachers,

musicians and love working

with children.”

Bid to find more homes

for abandoned dogs

A CITY council partnership to

retrain dogs for adoption with

a Bromley-based animal shelter

has resulted in almost all dogs

being rehomed last year.

The collaboration is between

the city council’s animal services

team and Dogwatch Sanctuary

Trust, as well as the Christchurch

Bull Breed Rescue in Woolston.

“Working with Christchurch

Bull Breed Rescue and Dogwatch

Sanctuary Trust is a key part of

our focus on rehoming dogs,”

city council animal services

manager Lionel Bridger said.

“These two organisations, together

with shelter staff, play a vital

role in helping to re-train dogs so

that they can be adopted out.”

Abbey Vanderplas is one of

two full-time, trained volunteers

at the Bull Breed Rescue.

She works with more than 20

other volunteers and foster carers

to provide support for pitbulls,

staffordshire terriers, bull terriers

and their crosses.

She founded the organisation

10 years ago after adopting a

staffordshire puppy from the city

council shelter and realising the

difficulties bull breed dogs faced

in finding new homes.

Vanderplas said there was an

“old school mentality” that just is

not there today.

“It took time to lift that

stigma but Christchurch now

is really lucky with our animal

management. For a large city

we are doing phenomenally well

at making sure good dogs get a

chance.”

Warm your

home with a

wood fire!

Big range, Low Price, Local advice

Pine Firewood

This is the most popular firewood. It

burns well when seasoned but has a

tendency to crackle and pop because

it is resinous and a soft firewood.

Oregon Firewood

One of the most popular burning

firewoods as it splits easily and burns clean.
