Battle to save war memorial library

Community

board to

contest

new ward

boundaries

• By Fiona Ellis

THE HALSWELL-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

is contesting the city council’s

representation review final

proposal, which it believes cuts

apart areas that should stay

united.

An appeal and objection submitted

by the board on Tuesday

said the balancing of residents to

representatives should not be the

city council’s only objective.

“Both wards and community

boards [need] to be based on

distinct and recognisable current

communities of interest,” the appeal

said.

The area bounded by Kotare

and Totara Sts and Clyde Rd has

been moved from the Riccarton

Ward into the Fendalton Ward

under the final proposal.

The board called this change

odd, pointing out these streets

were just one or two blocks from

Riccarton Rd.

It suggested the council balance

the Riccarton Ward by keeping

the area bordering Racecourse

and Epsom Rds, Middlepark Rd

and Yaldhurst Rd in the Hornby

Ward, rather than including it in

the Riccarton Ward as planned.

REMEMBERING those who

have served in the armed forces

is a personal matter for 91-year

old Upper Riccarton War

Memorial Library life member

Arthur Woods.

At a library trust meeting

the option of demolishing the

building, deemed earthquake

prone in 2018, was considered,

although no decision was

finalised.

“It was a big disappointment

for me to reach this point,”

Woods said.

“I lost a favourite brother in

December 1940, he was lost at

sea, an Italian submarine

sunk him.”

Friendship spanning 75 years

MUCH HAS changed since

Betty Small and Marjorie

Ainsworth first met on a softball

field in 1946.

There has been weddings,

births and countless other

milestones along the way.

However, what has not

changed is the close bond

between Betty, 90, and Marjorie,

91. This year the Christchurch

residents are celebrating 75 years

of being best friends since they

met as teenagers.

Their milestone coincides with

the 10th International Day of

Friendship on Friday – a United

Nations initiative promoting

friendship between people,

countries, cultures, and

individuals.

It is a way of inspiring peace

efforts and building bridges

between communities.

Betty visits Marjorie at her

residential care home whenever

she can.

Regardless of how long it

has been since they’ve seen

each other, Betty said the

conversation flows as though it

never stopped.

They love reminiscing about

their early days – and there have

certainly been some memorable

moments.

There were softball games with

celebrations or commiserations

held at the pub afterward, they

talk about their jobs at Well Cut,

and all the fun they used to have

in town on a Friday night.

Over time they have both

become parents, with Betty now

a proud great-grandmother.

Now they are both widows.

Throughout everything, Betty

and Marjorie have always been

there for each other. It was

the key to their long-lasting

friendship. Betty said it is

important to make time for

each other, otherwise life will

inevitably get in the way.

“It wasn’t easy once we were

married and had children and

we didn’t have phones at home

the way they do now. We didn’t

drive at the time either, but

occasionally I would get the

train into town from Lyttelton

with the pram and the nappies

and travel in the guard’s van to

see Marge.

“It would have been nice to see

each other more regularly, but

when we did, it was like we’d

never been apart.”

For Marjorie, what it means to

be a good friend comes down to

one thing.

“Someone who is always there

for you,” she said.

In Brief

DISC GOLF FOR HORNBY

The Christchurch Disc Golf

Association plans to set up two

courses in the Hornby area.

An 18-bin course in Warren

Park and a nine-bin course in

Broomfield Common will be

set up subject to city council

approval and funding support.

A have-a-go day will be held

later in the year.

UCSA UP FOR AWARD

The University of Canterbury

Students’ Association is one of

three finalists in the running to

win the Best Environmental/

Sustainable Business award in

the Hospitality New Zealand

Awards for Excellence 2021.

The winner must combine financial,

environmental and social

objectives in the delivery of

its core business activities. The

winner will be announced at an

awards dinner in September.

NEW ROOF FOR DOJO

The Kyokushnin Karate

Webster Dojo’s clubrooms in

Denton Park has received a

new roof. It used a Halswell/

Hornby/Riccarton Community

Board grant to replace

its leaking roof. The club also

wants to build onto the back of

the building, adding changing

rooms and a reception to the

former Hornby Scout Building.

Bid to save library

•From page 1

Woods’ father served in

World War 1. Other wars, such

as the Vietnam War, were also

important to remember, he said.

“I have a strong feeling for all

the boys who went to war, many

who didn’t come back.”

Opened on March 19, 1919, the

library was the first of seven war

memorials to be built in New

Zealand.

Although the city council

closed the library in October

2017 after an engineering

assessment raised concerns

about its structural strength, it

continued to run from another

part of the property for about a

year.

Woods moved to New Zealand

in 1952 and has been involved

with the library since about 1960,

he said. As a builder, he had done

odd jobs at the library when they

were needed.

He also joined the trust that

oversaw the library operation,

even serving as chairman for

a period until 2014. Woods is

unhappy with the prospect of

demolishing the building, which

he believes should be repaired.

“There was very little

required to be done. The fact is

they haven’t the money to spend

on it.”

MEMORIES: Upper Riccarton War Memorial Library life

member Arthur Woods does not want the building to be

demolished.

Trust chairwoman Aynslie

Walter also said there was no

funding to make repairs.

“This was a meeting to discuss

ideas,” Walter said.

She was disappointed

by the low turnout at the

meeting but still wants hear from

contributors before the trust

and council come to a combined

decision on the building’s future,

she said.

She thought it was unlikely

the library would be revived,

especially given user numbers

were very low when the library

operated from its annex.

However, there was “always

hope.”

Nearby resident

Pamela O’Brien attended the

meeting.

She did not think it was

likely the building would

remain standing because there

was a lack of funds and support

to revive it.

“I think people don’t know

what’s happening, they don’t

know it’ll be demolished.

“Once it’s gone, it’s gone

forever.”

Ward boundaries

to be contested

• From page 1

Also currently in the Hornby

Ward but planned to become part

of the Riccarton Ward

was the area bounded by

Epsom Rd, Middlepark

Rd, Craven St and Main

South Rd.

The board did not want

this area to move wards.

It also asked that a small

section bounded by Totara

St and Kahu and Straven

Rds stay in its current

Riccarton Ward.

“There is a strong connection of

this area to the historic Riccarton

House and Bush.”

Board Chairman Mike

Mora said that despite wanting

“tweaks” made, the board was

feeling positive.

Willowbank a constantly moving feast

Nick Ackroyd has been

looking after keas and

other native species

at Willowbank for the

past 12 years. He talks

to reporter Fiona Ellis

LOKI, BLOFELD, Moriarty

– these are just some of the

names of Willowbank Wildlife

Reserve’s 15 keas.

While the birds may not have

the villainous personalities of

their namesakes, their mischievousness

makes them popular

animals with native species

keeper Nick Ackroyd.

“Probably my favourite, that I

look after every day, is the group

of kea that we have here at Willowbank,”

the St Albans resident

said.

“They . . . are a bit crazy, so

that’s great fun.”

In spite of working in the role

for 12 years, the birds had never

managed to snatch any items

from him, but had been known

to pilfer pompoms, cash and

even credit cards from unwary

visitors.

Kea were as intelligent as great

apes and could solve puzzles that

stumped chimpanzees, he said.

His aim was not to domesticate

animals, but rather to keep

them as wild as possible.

“I think people assume there’s

a lot of cuddling of animals and

patting of things and playing

with stuff. When you’re a zookeeper,

you’re kind of doing the

opposite thing.

“I don’t want them to be playing

with me, I want them to be

going and socialising with the

other animals.”

Not interacting with other

animals could also make them

direct their aggression towards

humans, he said.

This was the case with a

paradise shelduck who had been

hand raised.

“He doesn’t like us and tries to

chase us away whenever we go

into his enclosure.”

Other animals were also in his

charge, from birds such as takahe,

kaka, and whio, to tuatara

and more threatening species.

“We also have a ferret and a

pig and a possum so that people

can see those animals that are

present in New Zealand as well,

and they’re the ones that are

causing issues for our native

animals.”

Conservation efforts were an

important part of Willowbank’s

role, and it was rewarding for

him to play his part in working

towards the Department of Conservation’s

Predator Free 2050

plan, he said.

Although he was concerned

about the future of New Zealand’s

wildlife, there were also

bright points to focus on.

Takahe were doing well and

their numbers increasing, he

said.

Willowbank received two new

takehe from Te Anau earlier

this month as part of a recovery

programme by DOC and Fulton

Hogan.

“Those birds are really

important, they’re genetically

quite unique and we’re hoping

to breed some young from them

this year.”

Signs they would hit it off

come breeding season were

promising, as the pair were

“hanging out” rather than fighting,

he said.

The programme aimed to

breed and release takahe, as Willowbank

had done with other

birds, such as the kaka in Abel

Tasman National Park.

It was always exciting to work

with DOC to do releases, Ackroyd

said.

People’s interest in Willowbank

and learning about native

wildlife was also encouraging,

from strangers to his own children.

“I’ve got two kids who have

both come through here heaps of

times and they love it too.”

However, his favourite aspect

SKILFUL:

Moriarty

looking for

something

to get his

beak into.

of the job was working with likeminded

people.

“We all love working with

animals and want to really make

a difference in that conservation/

native animal area.”

This made up for the less appealing

aspects of the job, such

as working through wicked early

morning frosts, chopping up

chicken to feed the ferret.

People would be surprised at

how much of his role involved

preparing food for the animals

and cleaning their dishes, he

said.

“There are lots more cleaning

and tidying jobs than you might

expect.”

As a child, he would not have

expected to find himself in this

job, in spite of his interest in

animals, he said.

“My zoo keeping career started

a little bit sideways. I trained to

be a teacher and I did a zooology

degree, but I didn’t really want to

work as a teacher.”

Instead, he took on a job tour

guiding at Kelly Tarlton’s Sea

Life Aquarium, which proved

to be a foot in the door of an

animal keeping career.

He was pleased to work mostly

with birds now.

“Mammals are a bit smelly and

difficult, whereas birds are lovely.

“It’s like a constantly moving

feast, Willowbank. There’s

always something new here.”

Flame grill or use a frying pan to cook your steak. Short, hard cooking

should produce tender meat.

Heat a grill, ridged grillpan

or frying pan. Use a

sharp knife to make several

cuts through the fat and

slightly into the meat as

this will stop it curling as it

cooks.

Lightly oil the steaks

before putting them onto

the heat. For juicy and

medium rare steaks, cook

them for about seven minutes

per side, turning once

and seasoning with salt

and pepper once you have

done so.

Remove from the heat,

wrap loosely in foil and

leave them to rest for five

minutes.

Mix the mustard and

mayonnaise, then spread

across the upper side of the

meat.

Salad: Cook the broccoli

in boiling salted water for

about four minutes, then

drain and set aside in a

warm bowl.

Chop and seed the

tomatoes, then add to the

broccoli. Chop the garlic

and tarragon finely, then

chop the chives into 2cm

lengths.

Mix the herbs with

the oil, lemon juice and

almonds, then gently toss

through the broccoli and

season with salt and pepper.

Serve warm.

½ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp Turmeric

1 tbsp liquid honey

1½ cups chicken stock

2 lemons, thinly sliced

3 bay leaves

1 cup stuffed green

Here’s what Merrin Students have

to say about their experience on the

Golden Key Mentoring Programme...

“I enjoyed Golden Key because I learnt

lots of new things. I enjoyed making the

slideshow and I had fun collaborating

with some great mentors.” Nina, Yr 6.

“I enjoyed working with my friends

and working with Marijke, we learnt

about the evolution of food.

I learnt what the people of the past ate;

Papanui Primary is a small school

where families and teachers work

together for the benefit of children’s

learning and development.

We believe that children need to feel

safe and happy before they can learn, so

our terrific staff work collaboratively to

create an inclusive and welcoming place

for children to learn and grow.

fish, vegetables and meat.

My favourite part was getting to eat

afterwards and making a slideshow

about the evolution of food.”

Malia, Yr 6.

“Golden Key was a lot of fun, the

activities were constructive. I enjoyed

meeting the mentors and seeing what

other people had done.” Aston, Yr 6.

“The reason I enjoyed Golden Key

was because I liked working with other

students from Merrin, I learnt lots of fun

facts about the evolution of food! I also

enjoyed getting to eat some of the food

afterwards.” Loretta, Yr 6.

Celebrating 170

years at St Michael’s

This year is an exciting one for St

Michael’s. As the country’s oldest

independent preparatory school, we are

celebrating our 170th year nurturing and

educating the children of Christchurch,

at the heart of our city.

And as the heart of our city has

bounced back, so too St Michael’s, with

a 69% roll increase since the post-quake

low in 2017. Such is the interest in the

school, that the Board has recently

announced two new classes: a new

entrant Year 0 for Term 3; and a second

Year 7 for January.

A legacy of 170 years is not built on

fresh air. It’s built on hard work and solid

expectations.

As once again NZ’s Maths standards

come under fire – and this time from

our own Education Review Office who

report ‘slippage in expectations’ and

several years of ‘relative deterioration’ in

pupil performance* – today’s St Michael’s

families enjoy the reassurance of our

legacy of traditional foundations and

academic rigour.

We teach reading and handwriting,

spelling and grammar, and good oldfashioned

Maths. This academic rigour

then underpins our wider curriculums

in Science, History, Geography and

languages.

Our small classes offer your child

outstanding specialist and individual

attention, and a sense of identity and

As a church school, our musical legacy

And talking of playing, have you seen
