Community kitchen gets

$4000 after stalemate broken

• By Fiona Ellis

COMMUNITY board members

have grappled over whether

ratepayers should be funding a

community kitchen.

The Northgate Community

Services Trust applied for $15,000

from the Papanui-Innes Community

Board’s discretionary

response fund, but some board

members believed the Government

should be paying for the

upgrade to the kitchen, which is

based in Papanui.

But the issue

was decided by

board chairwoman

Emma Norrish,

whose two votes

– one as a board

Emma

Norrish

member and one

as chair – broke a

stalemate to give

$4000 funding the green light.

The board lowered the grant

from the staff recommended sum

of $6000 because members were

concerned about the amount of

money left in the fund.

The trust currently runs a

community kitchen, which feeds

up to 80 people at its free weekly

community dinners in which

volunteers also socialise with

those attending.

ARTIST IMPRESSION: The community has been pushing

for a new Edgeware pool since the former pool was

demolished in 2007 by the city council. ​

SUPPORT:

The plants

for sale at

the St Albans

Community

Centre

were all

donated by

those keen

to support

the future

build of the

Edgeware

pool.

Plant sale a small boost for pool funds

• By Fiona Ellis

IT MAY ONLY be drop in the

water, but St Albans Residents

Association treasurer Lynne

O’Keefe says the $2000 raised

towards a new Edgeware pool is

a positive contribution.

The funds were raised at a

plant sale on Saturday at the St

Albans Community Centre, the

latest effort towards meeting the

project’s $3 million price tag.

“The plant sale went really, really

good. It was well attended,”

O’Keefe said.

The amount raised could still

rise as plants that did not sell on

the day were still available at the

centre.

The highlight of the event was

the community effort to help

the sale by donating all kinds

of plants, including succulents,

fruit and vegetable plants, and

shrubs.was the highlight of the

event, she said.

She was feeling positive about

the project because of this

support, in spite of the slow

progress.

The former pool was demolished

in 2007 by the city council,

and the community have been

pushing to get a new one rebuilt

ever since, but securing funding

has been a barrier.

The city council will contribute

$1.25 million if the group is able

to raise the rest of the required

cost.

About $200,000 has been

raised by the fundraising group

St Albans Civilian and Pool so

far, O’Keefe said.

“We will just keep on working,”

Speaking to Nor’West News

last November, O’Keefe predicted

that 2021 would be a major

year for fundraising.

However, so far this had not

proved to be the case.

“It’s just really time-consuming.

Covid has really upset it as

well,” she said.

Other funding applications

had been sent out, and the group

expected to hear whether these

were successful before the end of

the year.

The group was expecting a

geotechnical report of the land

to be completed within the next

month that would detail the

ground conditions and enable

architectural plans to be made.

It would then take the next

step of reaching out to businesses

in the area for financial support.

The growth of the area meant

the pool would be a valuable

amenity, she said.

Once it opens, residents can

expect an outdoor heated pool, a

learners pool, a toddlers’ splash

area, landscaped grounds with

picnic areas, and a facility with

toilets, showers and meeting

rooms.

achieve a

premium

result before

In Brief

MONEY LEFT OVER

AFTER BOARD GRANTS

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board has $699 remaining after

allocating funds to applicants

planning community events as

part of the Summer with your

Neighbours programme. The

left over money will go to the

board’s discretionary response

fund. A total of $2801 was

shared between 25 applicants.

The three largest grants were

worth $200 each and the two

smallest were for $50.

NEW CAR PARKS FOR

PAPANUI STREET

Nine right angle parks are set

to be installed in Winston Ave

after they were approved by the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board. The parks will be

restricted to a maximum of

60min on the south side of the

road. A disability park will be

installed as part of the changes

with a time limit of 120min.

SEED SWAP PLANNED AT

COMMUNITY GARDEN

A spring seedling swap will be

held on Saturday at the Packe

Street Park and Community

Garden in Edgeware. Starting at

1pm, people will be able to spend

the afternoon exchanging flower,

herb and vegetable seedlings

with other members of the

community.

• From page 1

The trust aims to expand its

services with a $126,000 kitchen

upgrade, giving the kitchen

commercial capacity.

“They’re looking at becoming

more self-sufficient through this

initial cost, and I think we need

to support that,” Norrish said.

The trust knew the

community well and knew the

needs of the people it catered to,

she said.

Board member Pauline Cotter

also supported the grant.

“The work these people are

doing in their local community

is outstanding,” she said.

“It’s going to have a really

good outcome and it’s going to

last them for years.”

However, board member Ali

Jones said she

was against

granting

the funding

because she

believed the

kitchen’s

price tag was

Ali Jones excessive and

there was a far greater need

elsewhere in the community.

“I just think we’re getting

outside what we should be doing

here.”

She believed the trust would

be able to raise the funds it

needed without the board’s

help.

Board member Emma

Twaddell also voted against

the grant, saying it put the

upgrade to

SKATERS WILL have to wait

until next year for the wheels to

council project.

Work to upgrade the Bishopdale

Skate Park was scheduled to begin

this month but has now been

rescheduled to early 2022.

community manager Darren

Moses said several factors were

behind the delay.

“Resource consenting and

tender preparation took longer

than expected, and there were

additional delays due to impacts

associated with the recent

working requirements,” Moses

said.

“We are aiming to start works

after the summer holidays subject

to an acceptable tender outcome

and contractor availability.”

Installed in 1980s and 1990s,

the current skate park lacks

variety and is becoming worn out,

both factors behind the planned

upgrade.

The new design includes a

1.65m quarter pipe pocket and a

There will also be bench seating

Quilters’ work on show at exhibition

• By Fiona Ellis

THE COVID-19 pandemic has

caused a surge of people reaching

for a sewing machine to try their

hand at the craft of quilt-making.

Christchurch Quilters president

Maria Rohs said the club’s

biennial exhibition this week has

more than 200 entries.

“We used to struggle to get

100,” Rohs said.

“We’ve got a lot more quilts in

the show than we usually do because

people have had two lockdowns,

this year and last year, so

everyone’s had more time.

“People are keener on getting

back into traditional things.”

The exhibition will run in the

Papanui High School hall until

Sunday. This year the theme is

“vivid.”

A wide range of styles from

traditional to modern would be

on show, with three non-members

selecting prize-winners.

Roh is among the exhibitors,

although she had been to busy

organising the event to enter any

major works.

However, her handiwork

earned her a national award in

the Aotearoa Quilters’ Great

New Zealand Quilt Show earlier

this year.

She was thrilled when her

piece, Night View at Sunset, won

the small quilt section.

SPRING HAS SPRUNG

Let the team at Airify Christchurch spring clean your heat pump

The piece was inspired by

the view from her home, and she

captured the intense light by using

metallic thread.

In over three decades of the

craft, she had only ever made one

quilt for herself, she said.

“I’ve only ever had one of my

own, when I had my 60th birthday

I got some floral fabric and

got everyone to make a block

each.’’

Several sewing machines

were set up as around 50 people

pitched in with their contributions,

and each person also

signed their fabric.

This favourite quilt of the

many she had made, and received

a lot of use, she said.

She first discovered quilting 35

years ago after hearing that her

local church ran craft sessions,

charging just $1 to cover cups of

tea.

A keen sewer since her

school days, her curiosity was

aroused.

“I’d heard about it and I

thought: ‘That sounds interesting,

I’ll go along and try it’.”

Three years later, she became

one of the earliest members of

the Christchurch Quilters.

Scraps of old, handmade

clothes, as well as specially

bought fabric, were used to

make her first piece, a “pretty

basic” bed quilt for one of her

daughters.

Over three decades later, she

had much more material to

hand.

“You see lovely fabric that you

like and then you buy it and

gradually you build up quite a

collection.”

Her current stash included

pieces from the early days when

she was just starting, as well as

fabric from her family’s native

Austria, and hand-customised

fabric she had worked on during

craft classes.

Most were cotton, the standard

quilting fabric because of its

longevity.

Simply great kiwi cuisine

100% owner operated

Products made by our own

team of qualified bakers

The creativity of the craft was

her favourite thing about it

“It’s an artistic outlet. I’ve got

more into art quilts and I’m not

making so many bed quilts now.”

This was common for quilters

who had worked their way

through all of their family members,

she said.

All her grandchildren were

equipped with personalised

quilts, so she had turned to make

smaller, ornamental works of her

own design.

Nature was a constant inspiration.

A forest scene depicting

kōwhai and kererū was currently

under way, and she had recently

finished a piece based on fallen

winter leaves.

Another quilt she had recently

finished was based on leaves

she noticed on the ground over

winter.

“I don’t think it is hard, you

just need to decide you want to

do it and find out how.”

Learning the craft was easier

than ever these days, especially

because of online tutorials on

sites such as YouTube, she said.

However, it was a time-intensive

hobby.

“Only once did I actually take

a note of all the hours. It was a

queen-sized quilt that I made

for a friend. It was 90 hours, and

that . . . was just making the top

of it.”

Spring has finally sprung – and while it’s wonderful to see all the daffodils

and cherry blossoms in bloom, this time of year can be brutal for those of us

with allergies and hay fever!

The Canterbury nor-wester is famous for blowing pollen all over town –

and while heading indoors can seem like the only escape from air-borne

allergens, these microscopic dust and pollen particles can actually build

up in your heat pump over time. Getting your heat pump cleaned every

12-months is the best way to keep the air circulating in your home fresh,

clean and allergen-free – and Airify Christchurch is here to professionally

tick one important job off your spring-cleaning to-do list!

New bus stop planned for The Palms

THE PALMS will soon get a

new and improved bus hub.

City council acting

head of transport

Lynette Ellis said the

bus stop will be safer

and easier to use.

The current stop on

New Brighton Rd will

be moved to create an

improved bus shelter

and new waiting area.

The work will involve

moving it towards the

Marshland Rd intersection

to create a more attractive

space for the 250 bus

passengers who use the

bus stop daily.

“The existing bus

stop is on the south

side of the mall which

is exposed to the

weather and has poor

visibility from the mall

entrances.

“The new bus stop and

shelter will be located by

Lynette

Ellis

the car park and has better

connectivity to The Palms

and other connecting bus

services.”

The work includes a

better bus shelter, indented

bus bays, improved lighting,

new bike racks at the bus

stop, replacing the existing

magnolia trees with new

magnolias and landscaping

plus new kerb and footpath

work where the existing bus

stop was.

“We’ll be using part of The

Palms car park to construct

the relocated bus stop and

this will be a short detour for

pedestrians while we do the

work but the disruption will be

minimal.

“Bus users can continue to

use the existing bus stop while

we work on the new one,” Ellis

said.

Work on the hub started

this week and is expected to be

finished in December.

First

Home

We are constantly reminded

of the uphill nature of the

challenges for first-home

buyers. Browse any newspaper

or Stuff headlines any weekend

and you’ll be familiar with the

narrative. I’ve just seen reports

that first-home buyer interest

in Christchurch property rose 18

per cent following the first week

of our local lockdown

(The Press, Sept 18, 2021).

Deposits that can require years of saving,

emptying out of KiwiSaver accounts and

a real adjustment of what’s affordable

versus what’s aspirational are a significant

part of the story.

That first home purchase is hard, it’s true,

but it’s also extremely sweet and I was

reminded of this recently when I witnessed

young families walking together, children

in tow, heading down to the local school.

They were travelling along the street

where I grew up and I use the word ‘travel’

figuratively because what occurred to me

They were proud as punch that they had

secured a home in the newly developed

suburb of Bishopdale and only a mere

100 metres from Cotswold School, where

I think we were founding students. It was a

busy, bustling neighbourhood of working

dads and mostly stay-at-home mums.

Biscuit tins were full and Sunday was the

family roast day. So many memories, and

now I’m wondering, would these new

families stay for long in the area, do they

love the school, would their kids befriend

all the locals as we did and play at the

nearby parks till almost dark?! I hope so.

On a recent auction day, I watched

young couples battle for the keys to

new properties and I noticed two very

significant things.

The prices had gone up considerably since

this time last year. Homes that once would

have been up to the $550,000 mark were

now due to auction touching $700,000

and in some cases more.

I can’t help but wonder who can afford this.

And secondly, parents, beautiful parents

I look forward to hearing from you to discuss in detail what strategy and timing

might just be right for you.
