ALTHOUGH many people may

be seeking a haircut as lockdown

restrictions ease, seven-year-old

Nathaniel Willis went in for a

more dramatic chop than most.

After growing his hair for

three years, he had it cut off on

Friday to donate to Hair Collect,

raising $850 for the Child Cancer

Foundation in the process.

His mother Sarah Willis said

they originally aimed to raise

$100 but quickly surpassed

that goal.

They changed their aim to

$500, and again surpassed the

goal.

Shipping

delays

hold up

community

centre

• By Fiona Ellis

Nigel Cox

SHIPPING DELAYS have held

up construction of Hornby’s new

$35.7 million community centre.

Previously set to begin this

month, the build is now expected

to start in late October, as 418

tonnes of essential steel earmarked

for the Kyle Park centre

are still on a ship near Taiwan.

This has pushed the expected

opening date back into early 2023.

Also delayed was the confirmation

of a building contractor,

which was announced as Naylor

Love Canterbury last week, in

spite of earlier expectations a

contractor would be named at the

start of August.

City council

head of recreation,

sports and

events Nigel Cox

said this was

because it took

longer than expected

to agree

on the fixed

price of a lump

sum contract.

“We now have an agreement

that mitigates the risk of price

escalation for the Christchurch

City Council,” Cox said.

Delays with new Hornby

community centre build

• From page 1

The budget for the build

had not changed, the council

confirmed.

Cox said the start of the build

was dependent on the arrival of

the 147 steel piles, which were

18 metres long and weighed 158

kilograms per metre.

The city council ordered them

in early May, but they were held

up by Covid-19 pandemic-related

shipping changes.

“This delay is typical of the

current global supply and

shipping challenges facing the

construction sector,” Cox said.

He understood the piles were

loaded into a ship in Taiwan last

week.

Earthworks were completed

at the site over winter, so Naylor

Love Canterbury would be able

to “hit the ground running,” Cox

said.

Examples of the construction

company’s handiwork included

the EA Networks Centre in

Ashburton and the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre in Rolleston, the

Ballantynes redevelopment and

the Spark Square building.

“I am sure many in the

community will watch progress

on the building with great

interest.”

A range of community and

recreational spaces would be

accommodated within the

3600sqm centre, including a

library, a creative activities room,

a lane pool, a learn-to-swim

pool, a toddlers’ wet play area, a

spa pool and a customer services

zone.

The new Hornby centre would

be a “fantastic asset” for the

community, Mr Cox said.

The city council is currently

seeking

feedback

on what

facilities and

programmes

people would

like the centre

to offer.

Submissions

Marc Duff are open until

COMING SOON:

The Hornby

Centre, with a

pool and library,

is set to open in

2022. ​

October 1.

Greater Hornby Residents

Association chairman Marc Duff

said the pandemic was a time

when people needed to be patient

about delays.

“It just means we’re going to

enjoy it more,” Duff said of the

upcoming facility.

“I’m appreciative negotiations

take time, if it gets a better

deal [and] leads to savings,

that’s awesome.”

Double

donation

• From page 1

“Every time a donation

or message came through

[Nathaniel’s] face lit up,” she said.

“My brother had cancer when

he was a child, so anything we

can do to help.” Fortunately, her

brother had recovered and the

family remained close.

Two years ago, when

Nathaniel’s hair started getting

long, Sarah and her husband

asked him if he wanted to grow

his hair to 25 centimetres, the

minimum length for a donation

accepted by Hair Collect.

Nathaniel’s hair was about

30cm long when it was cut for free

by Anna Reed of Halswell salon

BYond The Fringe on Friday.

The chop was planned to

take place last week, in time for

the Child Cancer Foundation

fundraiser Wig Wednesday.

Often a school event, Wig

Wednesday encourages

participants to “wear a wig,

shave your head or style a funky

hairdo.” It was not widely held

last week due to the Covid-19

pandemic restrictions.

Nathaniel wanted to make

someone happy with his donation

and was excited to get his hair cut,

he said. He was also pleased to

have short hair again.

Lockdown sees rise in graffiti in the west

• By Fiona Ellis

THE COVID-19 lockdown

contributed to a rise in graffiti

reports in parts of western

Christchurch, rather than the

decrease seen in other parts of

the city.

Council data also showed a

drop in graffiti reports in the

Halswell ward between July and

August, from 45 to 15.

However, both Riccarton and

Hornby experienced a rise, from

64 to 100 and 21 to 28 respectively.

Hornby Community Patrol

secretary Anne Smith said it did

not seem that graffiti lessened

during the lockdown.

The patrol began operating in

level two but had yet to run its

dedicated graffiti patrol, she said.

However, she said she had

personally observed “a slight

increase” while out and about.

Wycola Park stood out to her

as a place where she had seen

graffiti recently.

“You’d always hope that people

would behave and not do it, but

you are allowed to go out walking,”

she said of the opportunity

for graffiti under lockdown.

In north-west Christchurch,

Harewood also experienced a

rise in graffiti reports last month,

but most areas had a decrease

between July and August.

RISE: Reports of graffiti were up during lockdown in the west, in contrast to other parts of the city.

A graffiti report for the

month of August in Tuesday’s

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board meeting

agenda showed just 55 incidents

were reported to the city council,

down from 102 in July.

Of these, 24 were reported in

the Fendalton ward, where the

July total was 71, and five were

reported in Waimairi, where the

July tally was 13.

However, Harewood saw a rise

in reported incidents, increasing

from 18 in July to 26 in August.

City council manager of

community partnerships and

planning Gary Watson said the

Covid-19 Alert Level 4 lockdown

was a likely factor behind this,

following last year’s pattern in

the board area.

“We had 32 reports of graffiti

in the March-May 2020 lockdown

compared to 70 reports

over the same period in 2019,”

Watson said.

Considering Harewood’s rise,

he emphasised that “five people

could report the same graffiti at

one site and it would create five

incident reports.”

“We had reports of graffiti that

required removal at the skate

park and along the fence line

at Bishopdale Park. This is a

frequented area, even during

lockdown when people were doing

their regular exercise close to

their homes.”

Although not included in the

report, the city council confirmed

that reports of graffiti in

the Papanui ward also dropped,

albeit slightly, from 57 in July to

55 in August.

In the Innes ward, the drop

was more significant, falling

from 50 in July to 29 in August.

Christchurch North

Community Patrol chairman

Sam Hall said the downturn

was “absolutely” related to the

lockdown.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

However, the community

patrol was back in action in Alert

Level Two, and it seemed that the

taggers were also back.

Across the wider patrol area,

which encompassed both the

Fendalton-Waimari-Harewood

and Papanui-Innes areas, last

week’s three-hour graffiti patrol

found 15 tags.

This was was almost average,

he said,

In July, 47 tags were found in

12 patrol hours.

“We’ve yet to actually nab

someone [doing graffiti]. It

doesn’t take long, they can have

one done in 30 seconds.”

Water contamination sites highlighted

• By Fiona Ellis

THREE AREAS have been

highlighted as potential

stormwater contamination sites

in a Haswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board submission

to the city council.

The board was among 29

submitters on the draft stormwater

management plans for the

Halswell and Heathcote Rivers.

Adjacent to the Owaka Pit on

Wilmers Rd, a

former stormwater

retention

basin was one

of the three

sites the board

recommended

for early

Mike Mora

investigation

in the board’s

Halswell River submission.

“It has been filled in now but

will likely still be contaminated,”

the submission stated.

Catering to the nearby industrial

area, the stormwater

retention basin by the intersection

of Halswell Junction Rd and

Springs Rd was also listed.

The site of a former timber

treatment plant by the same

intersection was the final area of

concern.

Chairman Mike Mora said

the plans were important to the

board because the headwaters of

both rivers were in its area.

The impact of high levels of

residential development also

made it an important issue.

“We’ve just got to keep the water

quality as high as possible,”

Mora said.

The draft plans are the first of

seven being prepared between

2020 and 2023 for the district’s

different stormwater catchments.

They set out the ways in which

the city council will meet the

requirements of its 25-year Comprehensive

Stormwater Network

Discharge Consent which was

granted by Environment Canterbury

in 2019.

The board’s submissions

supported the goals outlined in

the plans and recognised the

potential for transport changes

and cycleways to result in fewer

vehicles on roads.

This would mean would less

Although no dates had been

council said it was likely to go to

Knitters give babies a warm welcome

FOUR WOMEN from

Ferrymead Rotary have knitted

almost 100 garments for babies

born at the Christchurch

Women’s Hospital this year.

Pat Edward, Debbie Woolf,

Kathryn Tovgaard and Barbara

Crooks began the project about

four months ago, although the

Ferrymead Rotary group has

been providing knitted clothing

to the hospital for some time.

Kathryn has personally been

knitting for the hospital for five

years.

Barbara said they intensified

their efforts this year after

receiving a call for help from the

hospital.

All babies born at the hospital

are given a woollen hat at birth,

while woollen singlets, matinee

jackets and booties are available

for mothers to take home.

So far, the group has knitted

more than 60 woolly hats, with

Pat heading the count.

The hats produced are a variety

of different sizes and colours.

Barbara said Ferrymead

Rotary has funded some of the

wool, but all of the knitters’ time

is given voluntarily.

They estimate up to seven

hours goes into making each hat.

Most of the knitting has been

done individually, although the

four have got together from time

to time to share wool and

swap notes.

Acknowledging Rotary clubs

used to be men only, Kathryn

said: “People don’t necessarily

connect Rotarians with knitting

but anything is possible.”

She said being a part of

a Rotary club was a family

tradition.

“One thing I said a long time

ago was that I always wanted

to help out in the community

throughout my life,” she said.

“A group of people can do

so much more than just an

individual.”

CHAMPION KNITTERS:

Ferrymead Rotary’s Kathryn

Tovgaard, Debbie Woolf, Pat

Edward and Barbara Crooks

have knitted almost 100

garments for new babies,

while Pat tries on a hat for

size (above).

Ferrymead Rotary community

director Debbie Woolf said the

club is also working on making

singlets and booties for Plunket

and supplying the Methodist

Mission with bedding, jerseys,

hats, scarves, gloves and shoes.

The Mission gives these items,

donated or sourced by Rotary

members, to homeless people.

Line dancer, fundraiser remembered

• By Fiona Ellis

WHETHER OR not former

Governor-General Jerry

Mateparae can line dance

remains unclear, but he can not

say he was never asked.

Bromley resident Mary

Stanley-Shepherd, who passed

away last month, offered to show

him the ropes in 2016 while

receiving her Queen’s Service

Medal for services to dance and

the community.

Daughter Karen Mather said

he was one of many who had

the chance, as the founder of the

Cathedral City Line Dancers was

a brilliant teacher, who led young

and old alike.

She would teach classes to

children with cancer at the

annual Camp Quality camp

each summer, and constantly

fundraiser for the cause for over

20 years.

Denise Wood, to whom Mary

passed leadership of the line

dancing club, estimated Mary,

who she remembered as caring

and encouraging, had raised

about $50,000.

This had been done from

methods ranging from raffles

and craft sales, to donating the

payments the club received to

dance at the yearly Spencer Park

gala.

However, no one was too old

to dance, and Mather recalls

her mother visiting old peoples’

homes to teach them some

moves.

“She’d go and see the older

people, even though she was

AWARD: Mary Stanley-Shepherd receives her Queen’s

Service Medal from former Governor-General Jerry

Mateparae in 2016.

probably older than them,”

she said.

“She just loved people, she was

a true extrovert.”

Even as her health started

to fail last year, she would still

attend line dancing classes,

giving instructions and advice.

This was typical of the tenacity

and positivity her mother

embodied, her daughter said.

“She would always find the

good thing, the joy, the positive

aspects.”

She also enjoyed the fact that

line dancing brought joy to

those who might be lonely, and

as it did not require a partner,

it was suitable for single people,

widows, and widowers.

Mary’s life was not always easy.

Born in England in 1933, she

lived through the Blitz.

“I remember her saying the

war years in London were

terrible, bombs night after

night.”

She left England aged 17 to

stay in Kenya with relatives,

and although the country was

unstable, she stayed upbeat,

enjoying the weekend dances.

Shortly after moving to New

Zealand, her first husband left

her and moved back to Kenya.

“She brought me up on

her own. She was a pretty

independent, feisty woman. This

is before feminism was really

defined.”

“She had to argue a few times.”

Mather remembers choosing

a bike for 10th birthday in the

early 1970s.

Her mother was not allowed

to buy it because she needed

her husband’s name for the hire

purchase agreement.

“We had to leave that shop

and leave the bike because they

wouldn’t sign it off. The next day,

mum was on the phone to the

big boss.”

In the end, the bike made it

home.

“She had perseverance . . .

those were the women who really

trail-blazed for us, I think.”

Aged in her 60s, Mary married

“the love of her life”, the late Art

Stanley-Shepherd.

Always a keen dancer, she took

to it quickly after being introduced

to line dancing in the 1970s.

“I always thought she’d die on

the dance floor.”

Even when unwell, Mary

took care to look stylish, and

her beautiful nails even drew

comments from the nurses at

Nazareth House, where she

passed away.

Because it was lockdown

at the time, the family was

unable to hold a funeral, but

memorial festivities were in the

works.

“We will be having a birthday

bash in November.”

“We’ll be having a line dance

and entertaining afternoon,

combined with pictures and

stories and things.”

“That’s really the send-off

mum would have wanted.”

JOY: Mary and her

husband Art Stanley-

Shepherd shared a

love of line dancing.
