BEFORE AND AFTER: Nathaniel Willis is donating his locks to Hair Collect and also raised $850 for child cancer.<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

ALTHOUGH many people may<br />

be seeking a haircut as lockdown<br />

restrictions ease, seven-year-old<br />

Nathaniel Willis went in for a<br />

more dramatic chop than most.<br />

After growing his hair for<br />

three years, he had it cut off on<br />

Friday to donate to Hair Collect,<br />

raising $850 for the Child Cancer<br />

Foundation in the process.<br />

His mother Sarah Willis said<br />

they originally aimed to raise<br />

$100 but quickly surpassed<br />

that goal.<br />

They changed their aim to<br />

$500, and again surpassed the<br />

goal.<br />

Shipping<br />

delays<br />

hold up<br />

community<br />

centre<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

Nigel Cox<br />

SHIPPING DELAYS have held<br />

up construction of Hornby’s new<br />

$35.7 million community centre.<br />

Previously set to begin this<br />

month, the build is now expected<br />

to start in late October, as 418<br />

tonnes of essential steel earmarked<br />

for the Kyle Park centre<br />

are still on a ship near Taiwan.<br />

This has pushed the expected<br />

opening date back into early 2023.<br />

Also delayed was the confirmation<br />

of a building contractor,<br />

which was announced as Naylor<br />

Love Canterbury last week, in<br />

spite of earlier expectations a<br />

contractor would be named at the<br />

start of August.<br />

City council<br />

head of recreation,<br />

sports and<br />

events Nigel Cox<br />

said this was<br />

because it took<br />

longer than expected<br />

to agree<br />

on the fixed<br />

price of a lump<br />

sum contract.<br />

“We now have an agreement<br />

that mitigates the risk of price<br />

escalation for the Christchurch<br />

City Council,” Cox said.<br />

Delays with new Hornby<br />

community centre build<br />

• From page 1<br />

The budget for the build<br />

had not changed, the council<br />

confirmed.<br />

Cox said the start of the build<br />

was dependent on the arrival of<br />

the 147 steel piles, which were<br />

18 metres long and weighed 158<br />

kilograms per metre.<br />

The city council ordered them<br />

in early May, but they were held<br />

up by Covid-19 pandemic-related<br />

shipping changes.<br />

“This delay is typical of the<br />

current global supply and<br />

shipping challenges facing the<br />

construction sector,” Cox said.<br />

He understood the piles were<br />

loaded into a ship in Taiwan last<br />

week.<br />

Earthworks were completed<br />

at the site over winter, so Naylor<br />

Love Canterbury would be able<br />

to “hit the ground running,” Cox<br />

said.<br />

Examples of the construction<br />

company’s handiwork included<br />

the EA Networks Centre in<br />

Ashburton and the Selwyn<br />

Aquatic Centre in Rolleston, the<br />

Ballantynes redevelopment and<br />

the Spark Square building.<br />

“I am sure many in the<br />

Kōrero mai | Have your say<br />

community will watch progress<br />

on the building with great<br />

interest.”<br />

A range of community and<br />

recreational spaces would be<br />

accommodated within the<br />

3600sqm centre, including a<br />

library, a creative activities room,<br />

a lane pool, a learn-to-swim<br />

pool, a toddlers’ wet play area, a<br />

spa pool and a customer services<br />

zone.<br />

The new Hornby centre would<br />

Come and talk to us at one of our drop-in sessions:<br />

be a “fantastic asset” for the<br />

community, Mr Cox said.<br />

The city council is currently<br />

seeking<br />

feedback<br />

on what<br />

facilities and<br />

programmes<br />

people would<br />

like the centre<br />

to offer.<br />

pool and library,<br />

is set to open in<br />

October 1.<br />

Greater Hornby Residents<br />

Association chairman Marc Duff<br />

said the pandemic was a time<br />

when people needed to be patient<br />

about delays.<br />

“It just means we’re going to<br />

enjoy it more,” Duff said of the<br />

upcoming facility.<br />

“I’m appreciative negotiations<br />

take time, if it gets a better<br />

deal [and] leads to savings,<br />

that’s awesome.”<br />

Double<br />

donation<br />

• From page 1<br />

“Every time a donation<br />

or message came through<br />

[Nathaniel’s] face lit up,” she said.<br />

“My brother had cancer when<br />

he was a child, so anything we<br />

can do to help.” Fortunately, her<br />

brother had recovered and the<br />

family remained close.<br />

Two years ago, when<br />

Nathaniel’s hair started getting<br />

long, Sarah and her husband<br />

asked him if he wanted to grow<br />

his hair to 25 centimetres, the<br />

minimum length for a donation<br />

accepted by Hair Collect.<br />

Nathaniel’s hair was about<br />

30cm long when it was cut for free<br />

by Anna Reed of Halswell salon<br />

BYond The Fringe on Friday.<br />

The chop was planned to<br />

take place last week, in time for<br />

the Child Cancer Foundation<br />

fundraiser Wig Wednesday.<br />

Often a school event, Wig<br />

Wednesday encourages<br />

participants to “wear a wig,<br />

shave your head or style a funky<br />

hairdo.” It was not widely held<br />

last week due to the Covid-19<br />

pandemic restrictions.<br />

Nathaniel wanted to make<br />

someone happy with his donation<br />

and was excited to get his hair cut,<br />

he said. He was also pleased to<br />

have short hair again.<br />

Water contamination sites highlighted<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

THREE AREAS have been<br />

highlighted as potential<br />

stormwater contamination sites<br />

in a Haswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board submission<br />

to the city council.<br />

The board was among 29<br />

submitters on the draft stormwater<br />

management plans for the<br />

Halswell and Heathcote Rivers.<br />

Adjacent to the Owaka Pit on<br />

Wilmers Rd, a<br />

former stormwater<br />

retention<br />

basin was one<br />

of the three<br />

sites the board<br />

recommended<br />

for early<br />

Mike Mora<br />

investigation<br />

in the board’s<br />

Halswell River submission.<br />

“It has been filled in now but<br />

will likely still be contaminated,”<br />

the submission stated.<br />

Catering to the nearby industrial<br />

area, the stormwater<br />

retention basin by the intersection<br />

of Halswell Junction Rd and<br />

Springs Rd was also listed.<br />

The site of a former timber<br />

treatment plant by the same<br />

intersection was the final area of<br />

concern.<br />

Chairman Mike Mora said<br />

the plans were important to the<br />

board because the headwaters of<br />

both rivers were in its area.<br />

The impact of high levels of<br />

residential development also<br />

made it an important issue.<br />

“We’ve just got to keep the water<br />

quality as high as possible,”<br />

Mora said.<br />

The draft plans are the first of<br />

seven being prepared between<br />

2020 and 2023 for the district’s<br />

different stormwater catchments.<br />

They set out the ways in which<br />

the city council will meet the<br />

requirements of its 25-year Comprehensive<br />

Stormwater Network<br />

Discharge Consent which was<br />

granted by Environment Canterbury<br />

in 2019.<br />

The board’s submissions<br />

supported the goals outlined in<br />

the plans and recognised the<br />

potential for transport changes<br />

and cycleways to result in fewer<br />

vehicles on roads.<br />

This would mean would less<br />

contamination, particularly<br />

FEEDBACK: The city<br />

council asked for<br />

public submissions<br />

on stormwater<br />

management, such<br />

as the Sparks Rd<br />

stormwater flood<br />

collection basin.<br />

of copper and zinc, which<br />

stormwater picked up from<br />

roads.<br />

Although no dates had been<br />

set to progress the plan, the city<br />

council said it was likely to go to<br />

its three waters infrastructure<br />

and environment committee in<br />

October for endorsement.<br />

Dinghy races start yachting season<br />

OPEN DAY: The new Pleasant Point Yacht Club facilities will host a dinghy race meeting this weekend. Senior boats compete in one of the many races<br />

the club holds each sailing season out on the estuary.<br />

• By John Cosgrove<br />

TACKING through Covid-19<br />

regulations ensures a fair wind<br />

for the Pleasant Point Yacht Club<br />

as it starts sailing this weekend.<br />

On Saturday, the club will<br />

launch its 101 st season on the<br />

estuary.<br />

Club committee member Nigel<br />

Humphreys said they will be out<br />

on the estuary from the South<br />

New Brighton Park as they host<br />

an open race for dinghy sailors.<br />

“Despite Covid we’ll be out<br />

there, but because of the delay<br />

in opening by many other clubs<br />

in the district we are expecting<br />

a slightly lower turnout than in<br />

previous years.”<br />

The race starts at 2.40pm and<br />

Humphreys said spectators and<br />

those interested in sailing are<br />

welcome to come along.<br />

“Our 101 st season is going to<br />

be a good one as we have new<br />

boats and facilities on hand,<br />

they are great and make a vast<br />

improvement from five years in<br />

containers.”<br />

He credits the new facilities<br />

and the heightened interest<br />

in sailing due to the recent<br />

America’s Cup and Olympics<br />

as the reason for the growing<br />

interest in sailing.<br />

“Some come for the social<br />

side and some come to race, to<br />

help them all we will be starting<br />

junior and adult Learn to Sail<br />

programmes in October.”<br />

The junior course will run<br />

during the school holidays from<br />

October 11 through to October<br />

15, while the adult learn to sail<br />

course will run from October 17<br />

through to November 13.<br />

The courses follow the<br />

Yachting NZ coaching<br />

programme and will be run<br />

by the club’s learn to sail coordinators<br />

Dan O’Sullivan<br />

and Brett Hawkes, with<br />

assistance of experienced club<br />

members.<br />

No experience is needed to<br />

take part and the club will<br />

supply yachts and life jackets<br />

… but recommend suitable<br />

footwear and warm clothing.<br />

Knitters give babies a warm welcome<br />

FOUR WOMEN from<br />

Ferrymead Rotary have knitted<br />

almost 100 garments for babies<br />

born at the Christchurch<br />

Women’s Hospital this year.<br />

Pat Edward, Debbie Woolf,<br />

Kathryn Tovgaard and Barbara<br />

Crooks began the project about<br />

four months ago, although the<br />

Ferrymead Rotary group has<br />

been providing knitted clothing<br />

to the hospital for some time.<br />

Kathryn has personally been<br />

knitting for the hospital for five<br />

years.<br />

Barbara said they intensified<br />

their efforts this year after<br />

receiving a call for help from the<br />

hospital.<br />

All babies born at the hospital<br />

are given a woollen hat at birth,<br />

while woollen singlets, matinee<br />

jackets and booties are available<br />

for mothers to take home.<br />

So far, the group has knitted<br />

more than 60 woolly hats, with<br />

Pat heading the count.<br />

The hats produced are a variety<br />

of different sizes and colours.<br />

Barbara said Ferrymead<br />

Rotary has funded some of the<br />

wool, but all of the knitters’ time<br />

is given voluntarily.<br />

They estimate up to seven<br />

hours goes into making each hat.<br />

Most of the knitting has been<br />

done individually, although the<br />

four have got together from time<br />

to time to share wool and<br />

swap notes.<br />

Acknowledging Rotary clubs<br />

used to be men only, Kathryn<br />

said: “People don’t necessarily<br />

connect Rotarians with knitting<br />

but anything is possible.”<br />

She said being a part of<br />

a Rotary club was a family<br />

tradition.<br />

“One thing I said a long time<br />

ago was that I always wanted<br />

to help out in the community<br />

throughout my life,” she said.<br />

“A group of people can do<br />

so much more than just an<br />

Ferrymead Rotary community<br />

director Debbie Woolf said the<br />

club is also working on making<br />

singlets and booties for Plunket<br />

hats, scarves, gloves and shoes.<br />

The Mission gives these items,<br />

members, to homeless people.<br />

Quilters share their colourful creations<br />

• By Samantha Mythen<br />

THE BAYS Harbour Quilting<br />

Group is exhibiting its spring<br />

collection at Stoddart Cottage in<br />

Diamond Harbour throughout<br />

<strong>September</strong>.<br />

Marilyn Hopkins has been<br />

a member of the group for a<br />

decade, with 10 years’ of her<br />

creations on display.<br />

She said the group of nine<br />

started with just a few friends,<br />

quilting in the Diamond<br />

Harbour hall.<br />

But the building was “too big<br />

and too cold” so the friends<br />

moved their quilting catch-ups<br />

to each other’s homes.<br />

The retirees, based around<br />

Lyttelton Harbour, now meet<br />

once a month for the day.<br />

They occasionally travel over<br />

the hill for a crafting session<br />

with friends who have since<br />

moved into the city.<br />

At each session, they share<br />

knowledge and skills, inspiration,<br />

morning tea and laughter.<br />

Marilyn’s mother Josephine<br />

was a dressmaker and taught her<br />

how to sew when she was young,<br />

although she only took a liking<br />

to it when she started making<br />

clothing for her first grandchild.<br />

As that grandchild grew older,<br />

Marilyn turned to quilting.<br />

“I like quilting as you can<br />

make it up as you go along or<br />

you can copy a pattern, you don’t<br />

have to try and fit it to anyone,”<br />

she said.<br />

“It’s also just about simple sewing,<br />

you don’t have to do those<br />

horrible things like sewing in a<br />

zip.”<br />

One of the favourite quilts she<br />

has made is on her bed, sewn<br />

with doilies from her mother.<br />

VIBRANT: Marilyn Hopkins with her multi-piece quilt, one of<br />

several on display at Stoddart Cottage this month. ​<br />

It usually takes Marilyn a<br />

month to make a quilt, but one<br />

of her pieces in the exhibition<br />

took three months.<br />

“It is made up of thousands of<br />

pieces of fabric,” she said.<br />

Her current project is making<br />

a ‘block of the day.’<br />

Facebook group posted a 12x12<br />

inch block each day during<br />

lockdown, and Marilyn decided<br />

to take on the challenge.<br />

Alongside the 18 quilts on<br />

display in the exhibition, there<br />

will also be fabric-covered<br />

notebooks, bags, cushions, tea<br />

cosies and soft toys.<br />

for your<br />

“Forever Home”<br />
