FOR SHIRLEY Poppelwell, a

potato growing competition

is the way to bring her

neighbourhood together.

Shirley has organised one

of the more unusual Summer

with your Neighbours activities

this summer – a judging of

the annual potato growing

competition.

The idea first started about a

decade ago and since then residents

of her Russley cul-de-sac

have made it their summertime

meeting occasion.

“We all have the same size

WINNER: Current potato growing trophy holder Dick Jones with Shirley Popplewell, who is again organising the

annual neighbourhood competition.

buckets that we grow them in

and whoever wins has to buy

the potatoes for the following

year,” said the 77-year-old

retired accountant.

“The winner gets their house

number engraved on the trophy

– a potato masher mounted on

a block of rimu. We usually get

someone not associated with the

competition to do the judging.

Rest assured we’re all checking.’’

Judging is done by weight

and no particular variety that is

grown, Shirley said.

ALL DESIGN options considered

for the Wheels to Wings cycleway

will be on display to the public

today and tomorrow.

It follows consultation earlier

this year on an initial design for

the cycleway.

Public information days were

originally scheduled to take place

in September, but were delayed

because of the shift in Covid-19

alert levels.

They will now take place the

former Ara campus building in

Bishopdale Mall.

City council acting head of

transport Lynette Ellis said

the council received 1348 submissions

during the consultation

period, many of them highly

detailed.

“We heard wide-ranging views

from local residents and businesses

about their concerns and

desires for their neighbourhoods,”

Ellis said.

“We’re finding ways to fit

more parking in around businesses,

improve local access and

address congestion concerns

through our design work,’’ she

said.

A summary of that feedback

received, along with council’s

response, will be displayed at the

information days.

Survey prompts action plan

A DECLINE in satisfaction

ratings has prompted the city

council to implement a fivepoint

action plan responding

to the findings of its annual

residents’ survey.

City council

assistant

chief executive

Lynn

McClelland

said the city

council was

determined

Lynn

McClelland

to turn

around the

trend of the

past few years.

The 2021-2022 residents’

survey is now being carried out

until March 2022.

“We also want to help residents

understand the realities

of the financial, legislative and

other trade-offs and challenges

that form the context of the

council’s decision-making,’’ Mc-

Clelland said.

The plan involves improving

existing work programmes and

adding new initiatives to help

lift the city council’s performance.

“There will be a stronger focus

across the council teams on

ensuring that level of service

targets are met. We will also

be improving our processes for

dealing with customer service

requests,’’ McClelland said.

COMMUNICATION: Engagemnet will be a focus of the city council’s annual residents’

survey has found a decline in satisfaction ratings over the past few years.

Communication would also

be a focus.

“We will be providing people

with regular updates on how we

are performing in the areas that

they have identified as being of

particular interest to them, such

as roading infrastructure, water,

safety and sustainability,’’ Mc-

Clelland said.

The city council is also

exploring how it can improve

its engagement processes and

residents’ understanding of

decision-making.

“Options we are exploring

include making greater use of

local community board forums

and working more closely

with community groups and

institutions, such as schools and

universities.

“We are also considering

giving people more options on

how they can provide feedback

and at potentially changing

the way we operate hearings so

they are less judicial in style,’’

McClelland said.

“As an executive leadership

team we are committed to

working with councillors to

improve our communities’

understanding and engagement

with council decision-making.’’

The 2021-2022 residents

survey covers services such

as parks, libraries and service

centres and is distributed to a

wide range of people via email,

letter and feedback at city

council facilities.

In Brief

NORTHERN CORRIDOR

SEAL TO BE APPLIED

The final chip seal layer will

be applied to the Christchurch

Northern Corridor from Sunday,

weather permitting. Low noise

asphalt is likely to follow in late

November.

DULLES PLACE

ROADWORKS

Papanui’s Dulles Place will

be closed until November 12

between 7am and 2pm on

weekdays to replace sewer mains

and laterals. The road will be

open on Sundays and some

Saturdays, although on-road

parking will be limited.

GARDEN PRIDE AWARDS

GETS FUNDING

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

has allocated $3000 from its

2021-22 discretionary response

fund to its Community Garden

Pride Awards. Judging will be

undertaken by the Christchurch

Beautifying Association in

January or February.

CORRECTION

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

has made a submission to the

city council on its proposal for

the third and final section of

the Nor’West Arc cycleway, not

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board as reported last week.

Nor’west News apologises for any

confusion.

The annual

by the board in

it was first planted in 2000.

“It’s really lovely.

There are lots of people

This year’s event was set

to take place in Bishopdale

Park on November 20.

“Costs have been incurred

by city council staff

this local event which

has now been wasted due

to the lack of clarity and

timeliness around rules

for events,” Middlemiss

said.

Throughout the year,

area residents would tell

him of the value they

found in local events, he

said.

“The South Island

deserves clarity around

can adequately plan and

Plan for safe cycling route

• From page 1

Over the past few months

city council staff have been

analysing the submissions,

continuing to meet with

businesses and submitters, and

looking at design options to

address as many of the issues

raised as possible.

The Wheels to Wings cycleway

aims to provide a safe cycling

route for people travelling

through Papanui, Bishopdale,

Harewood and in the airport

area.

About 7000 people work at the

airport campus and the airport

has reported that there is strong

demand for safe cycling routes.

It also provides benefits to the

wider community through additional

crossings for pedestrians

and safety improvements at

intersections.

This cycleway is part of a network

of cycleways that is being

constructed to make it safer and

easier to bike around Christchurch.

“The public information days

are an opportunity to discuss

the feedback from consultation,

share the design work we’ve been

doing and for people to provide

feedback on the additional work

we’ve done,” said Ellis.

“We’ll display all of the options

we’ve considered including

our preferred design that has

incorporated the feedback we

received.”

ON DISPLAY: The city council’s proposed Wheels to Wings

cycleway.

“The extra information will

also help people to prepare

their comments to the hearings

panel who will make a

recommendation to the

council.”

Wheels to Wings cycleway information days will

be held at the former Ara campus building in

Bishopdale Mall on:

Today, October 28, noon to 7pm

Tomorrow, 9am to 3pm

•Due to Covid-19 restrictions, people are asked to

book a time to attend an information day on the

Wheels to Wings web page.

•https://www.ccc.govt.nz/the-council/haveyoursay/

show/454

•For those who are unable to attend the information

days, the information is also available on the same

web page.

WINNING TEAM: Richmond Bowling Club’s fours team,

skippered by Bev Morel, retained the South Island fours

crown. They are (from left) – Jan Shirley, Tania Woodham,

Bev Morel and Theresa Woodham.

Another South Island

bowls crown for Morel

A COUPLE of lucky breaks

helped secure an eighth win for

Bev Morel when she skippered

the Richmond Club’s fours team

to the Clubs’ NZ South Island

women’s fours tournament

crown in Ashburton.

Morel, who lives in Redwood,

and her team of Jan Shirley,

Theresa Woodham and Tania

Woodham, played in tricky

wind conditions to record a

come-from-behind win,

scoring 21-15 over Julie Dalley’s

Hornby Club team of Liz

Rossiter, Kay Wallace and

Sonia Butler.

Thursday October 28 2021

Dalley’s team had looked

promising for the first 10 ends

leading 12-6 but Morel’s team

fought back, buoyed on by a

four and a five on the 14 th and

16 th ends, to move away to a

comfortable win by five shots by

the 18 th end.

For Morel, this was the closest

margin she and her team had

faced over the four previous

matches during the tournament,

her earlier wins were 22-9, 21-13

and 25-14.

The annual club tournament

attracted 44 entries from around

the South Island.
