Cutting it off for cancer

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

• By Fiona Ellis

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

Kōrero mai | Have your say

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.

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.

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

Dinghy races start yachting season

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

the club holds each sailing season out on the estuary.

• By John Cosgrove

TACKING through Covid-19

regulations ensures a fair wind

for the Pleasant Point Yacht Club

as it starts sailing this weekend.

On Saturday, the club will

launch its 101 st season on the

estuary.

Club committee member Nigel

Humphreys said they will be out

on the estuary from the South

New Brighton Park as they host

an open race for dinghy sailors.

“Despite Covid we’ll be out

there, but because of the delay

in opening by many other clubs

in the district we are expecting

a slightly lower turnout than in

previous years.”

The race starts at 2.40pm and

Humphreys said spectators and

those interested in sailing are

welcome to come along.

“Our 101 st season is going to

be a good one as we have new

boats and facilities on hand,

they are great and make a vast

improvement from five years in

containers.”

He credits the new facilities

and the heightened interest

in sailing due to the recent

America’s Cup and Olympics

as the reason for the growing

interest in sailing.

“Some come for the social

side and some come to race, to

help them all we will be starting

junior and adult Learn to Sail

programmes in October.”

The junior course will run

during the school holidays from

October 11 through to October

15, while the adult learn to sail

course will run from October 17

through to November 13.

The courses follow the

Yachting NZ coaching

programme and will be run

by the club’s learn to sail coordinators

Dan O’Sullivan

and Brett Hawkes, with

assistance of experienced club

members.

No experience is needed to

take part and the club will

supply yachts and life jackets

… but recommend suitable

footwear and warm clothing.

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

Ferrymead Rotary community

director Debbie Woolf said the

club is also working on making

singlets and booties for Plunket

and supplying the Methodist

members, to homeless people.

Quilters share their colourful creations

• By Samantha Mythen

THE BAYS Harbour Quilting

Group is exhibiting its spring

collection at Stoddart Cottage in

Diamond Harbour throughout

September.

Marilyn Hopkins has been

a member of the group for a

decade, with 10 years’ of her

creations on display.

She said the group of nine

started with just a few friends,

quilting in the Diamond

Harbour hall.

But the building was “too big

and too cold” so the friends

moved their quilting catch-ups

to each other’s homes.

The retirees, based around

Lyttelton Harbour, now meet

once a month for the day.

They occasionally travel over

the hill for a crafting session

with friends who have since

moved into the city.

At each session, they share

knowledge and skills, inspiration,

morning tea and laughter.

Marilyn’s mother Josephine

was a dressmaker and taught her

how to sew when she was young,

although she only took a liking

to it when she started making

clothing for her first grandchild.

As that grandchild grew older,

Marilyn turned to quilting.

“I like quilting as you can

make it up as you go along or

you can copy a pattern, you don’t

have to try and fit it to anyone,”

she said.

“It’s also just about simple sewing,

you don’t have to do those

horrible things like sewing in a

zip.”

One of the favourite quilts she

has made is on her bed, sewn

with doilies from her mother.

VIBRANT: Marilyn Hopkins with her multi-piece quilt, one of

several on display at Stoddart Cottage this month. ​

It usually takes Marilyn a

month to make a quilt, but one

of her pieces in the exhibition

took three months.

“It is made up of thousands of

pieces of fabric,” she said.

Her current project is making

a ‘block of the day.’

A member of the Kiwi Quilters

Facebook group posted a 12x12

inch block each day during

lockdown, and Marilyn decided

to take on the challenge.

Alongside the 18 quilts on

display in the exhibition, there

will also be fabric-covered

notebooks, bags, cushions, tea

cosies and soft toys.
