Aussie Rules not just for kicks

St Margaret’s College student Indy Gibson (right) contests the ball from Jess Howison during round

one of the inaugural Canterbury Australian Football League’s new women’s league, which started on

Saturday. CAFL president Matt Cawley said the idea for the women’s league came from a growing

national interest in the sport. He said several women’s players had already travelled to play at

tournaments in the North Island so they thought they could help them and the sport by starting a

women’s league here. In a tight game the Ferns beat the Korus 7-7-49 to 6-4-40. PHOTO: JOHN COSGROVE

Hearing next

step in bid

to open

contentious

rehabilitation

centre

• By Fiona Ellis

A HEARING to be held next

week is the next step in the

Department of Corrections’

contentious bid to open a

rehabilitation centre for violent

offenders in St Albans.

The proposed site at 14 Bristol

St may in the future house 12

men over 18-years-old taking part

in a four-month rehabilitation

programme.

The hearing will begin on

Monday and finish on Thursday,

with a panel of two independent

commissioners.

Among those listed on the

hearing schedule are Department

of Corrections representatives,

city council staff, and specialist

experts such as criminal justice

expert Dr Jarrod Gilbert.

In a statement of evidence,

Gilbert supported the proposal,

calling it “an example of the

innovative service that is much

needed in a modern justice

system.”

Sixteen named submitters

will also be heard, as well more

anonymous submitters who

would be represented by others.

Alanya Limmer and law

firm Chapman Tripp would

represent a group that included

the Bristol Street Community

Network.

A statement of evidence on

behalf of the network by Brett

Giddens opposed the plan.

Market that will give back to community

• By Fiona Ellis

A MARKET with a community

focus is set to open this Saturday,

making the long-held wish of one

of its organisers a reality.

The Northern Community

Market will be held at Northcote

School, and a portion of funds

raised at the event will also be

donated to the school.

Market secretary Stephanie

Heaver said the idea of a market

was to give back to the community.

“I thought ‘this will be good:

get everyone together and then

we can put the proceeds back

out into the community again,”

Heaver said.

The idea of a local market for

northern Christchurch had been

in the back of Heaver’s mind for a

long time.

She had lived in the area for 20

years and had always wanted one,

she said.

Finally, she sprung into action

after reading an online comment

asking why the area did not have

one, she said.

“Other markets have been

doing rather well throughout

Christchurch.

“Let’s just do it.”

Initially, funds raised

would go towards meeting

needs at the Northcote School,

for example, sports equipment,

she said.

As the fortnightly market

became more established it would

also look for other causes to support.

“We pay all our bills and things

first and then over and above that

we can divvy out what we need to

put into other things.

“We want to get as much back

out to the community as we can.”

The first market would have

about 40 or 50 stallholders, selling

a variety of products.

“It ranges from fruit and veg,

arts and crafts, homemade products,

car boot sales, food stalls, all

sorts of things.”

She would be among the

stallholders, selling her own

handiwork, such as “mandala

type” wall hangings.

The opening of the market

had been pushed back due to

Covid-19, but she was excited

that the vision she and others had

been working towards was finally

set to become reality.

Opening at 10am, the market

would run until 4pm and would

adhere to pandemic alert level

regulations.

ALL SET: Secretary of the

Northern Community

Market Stephanie Heaver

is organising the market’s

opening and will also have

her own crafts stall.

achieving the result today that exceeded our expectations. The detail and

professionalism has been on point. Staging, photography, the video along

with the marketing campaign all leading to a great property to present to

the market. These aspects all set the scene perfectly for the open homes and

visits leading to today’s outstanding auction result. Quiet night tonight but

sure there will be a few celebratory drinks later in the week.

No business like show business

NORMAN FORSEY describes

himself as a ‘retired thespian’ but

that description may underplay

the significant roles he has

played on stage, on film and on

television sets.

The Riccarton man has rubbed

shoulders with many industry

greats over the years. There was

even a rock star or two, including

David Bowie.

The Margaret Stoddart Retirement

Village resident’s penchant

for performance may have come

from his humble upbringing,

which included periods of malnutrition.

Concern about his skinny legs

led to some training in ballet,

Norman said.

Norman was born in 1937 in

London’s Whittington Hospital,

on Highgate Hill, to a seventeenyear-old

mother.

He was adopted by a Welsh

couple at two months old.

“When I was about four, to

quote the family doctor, he said:

‘I think we should get Norman

either skating or dancing to

strengthen his poor little legs, to

build him up’.”

His skills in tap dancing and

classical ballet, plus the ability to

perform before a crowd, led on to

three years of studying drama at

the Welsh College of Music and

Drama at Cardiff Castle.

“And among my fellow students

was a young chap called

Anthony Hopkins.”

During this time, Norman met

his future wife, Chrissie.

Norman, Chrissie and Hopkins

toured Welsh theatres and

village halls together, appearing

in a Thornton Wilder play, The

Skin of Our Teeth.

Chrissie and Norman married

in 1960, soon after he’d finished

his National Service.

He became wardrobe master to

BBC Wales, a job he loved.

The wardrobe fittings included

working with the likes of Bill

Travers, known for his appearance

in Born Free, and Susan

Hampshire, who appeared on the

United Kingdom theatre circuit

and on television.

In 1973, Norman and Chrissie

decided to emigrate to Auckland,

where Norman worked in the

‘rag trade’ for many years, producing

costumes for stage, film

and television.

He also acted, appearing in an

early episode of Close to Home,

as well as featuring as one of

the two “baddies” in Hunter’s

Gold, a South Pacific Television

production based on the Otago

gold rush.

Then there was an extended

five-week trip to the Cook Islands,

to work with David Bowie

and the Japanese production

team on the set of Merry Christmas,

Mr Lawrence.

Norman’s costumes work

extended into generally helping

out. In the initial Auckland

filming, he would drive Bowie

THESPIAN: Norman

Forsey today and on the

set of Merry Christmas, Mr

Lawrence, pictured to the

right of David Bowie.

around the suburbs incognito,

while on a break from filming.

“We tried to keep it secret

to avoid the crowds and stuff.

When he arrived, he said: ‘What

are you driving Norm’, and I said

‘I’m driving your campervan,

your dressing room’.”

Another film that Norman

worked on was the Ron Howarddirected

Willow, starring Warwick

Davis and Val Kilmer.

He also worked on Lord of the

Rings, and alongside Lucy Lawless

on Xena: Warrior Princess.

Norman and Chrissie

eventually moved to

Christchurch, to be closer to

their son and his family.

For some years Norman acted

with the Canterbury Repertory

Theatre and The Court Theatre.

Later, he became a full-timecarer

for Chrissie until her death.

He is now enjoying the

camaraderie of the retirement

village.

Residential

centre bid

pushes on

• From page 1

“I consider that the applicant

has not demonstrated a strategic

or operational need for the

activity to be located in a

residential zone,” Giddens stated.

Submissions on the project

closed earlier this year, and those

who shared their opinions were

broadly unsupportive.

Nor’West News reported in June

that the city council received 173

submissions against the project

and just 20 in favour. Many who

submitted were residents who

cited safety as a concern.

In response to this, the Department

of Corrections changed its

proposal, including reducing the

maximum number of residents

from 16 to 12, and increasing the

maximum number of staff on-site

to 14.

The resource application said

residents at the facility will be

intensively supervised and monitored

by GPS while living there,

supervised on trips to places like

the supermarket, and CCTV

cameras will be installed.

Those convicted of sexual

offences would not be eligible for

the programme.

It also did not include offenders

needing specialised intervention

for drug, alcohol and significant,

untreated mental health issues.

Avonhead School pupils are the young quiz masters

PUPILS IN the Western News

area have come out on top in

a national quiz competition

grilling contestants on their

general knowledge.

The ODT Extra! Current

Events Quiz took place last

week, with more than 1000

teams of three participating in

the online quiz across three age

divisions.

Avonhead School pupils

placed first in the year 5 and 6

category of the event, and also

took second in the year 7 and 8

category.

Medbury School also did well,

with pupils placing second in

the year 5 and 6 category.

ODT Extra! marketing

manager Jeff Paterson said the

quiz was broken down into 10

rounds covering questions from

local and international geography,

history, current events and

general knowledge.

Earlier this year Allied Press,

publisher of the Otago Daily

Times, teamed up with Dunedin

digital educator Education

Perfect to run the competition

online.

Education Perfect chief

operations officer Emma McAllister

said the quiz provided an

interactive, digital competition

Thursday November 4 2021

which was extended to those

still experiencing lockdown

conditions.

The top 10 teams in each year

group will join the top teams

from the ODT Extra! Spelling

Bee, which took place earlier this

year, for the grand final at the

Otago Museum later this month.

Students’ drink bottle formula successful

ST MARGARET’S College

students are making a splash

with their business idea of selling

‘drink bottles with a difference’.

Nicola Crosbie, Nikita Bloy,

Henrietta Osborne, Charlotte

Gilray, and Olivia Peter won

the Young Enterprise Scheme

Regional Awards for North Canterbury

last week.

Twelve secondary school teams

came in one after the other for

a day of exciting Dragons Denstyle

pitches, hosted at regional

partner Ara Institute of Canterbury’s

Christchurch campus.

Splash for Change, by the St

Margaret’s College team, was

pitched as a business with charity

at the heart of its mission.

A total 50 per cent of the profit

from each high-quality drink

bottle is donated to a specific

charity it represents, with colours

or slogans to match.

The business has an active

presence selling drink bottles

online which supports its three

chosen charities: the Breast Cancer

Foundation NZ, the Mental

Health Foundation of New

Zealand and Educating Girls

Globally– a charity set up by two

St Margaret’s College alumna.

YES Canterbury regional coordinator

Idoia Alday Gonzalez

said social awareness was clear in

the ideas of the regional winners.

“I continue to be humbled by

our YES youth. Their awareness

of social issues, their passion and

resourcefulness to find solutions

and drive change – this all shines

This year’s Regional Awards

were held online with an

audience of 183 tuned into the

YouTube livestream, including

groups of teams, teachers, family

and friends, all keen to celebrate

the students’ 2021 YES journey.

Winning teams will go on

to represent their regions in

the YES National Finals on

50-year gathering for former post office workers

• By John Cosgrove

I REMEMBER: For (from left) Mike Harris, of Middleton, Robert Evans, of Marshland, and Graeme Fraser, of Halswell,

rediscovering the memories of the fun they had while working in the record section at the iconic Cathedral Square chief

post office building, made them all smile and laugh. On the reunions commemorative plate, former shorthand typists

from the typing pool Colleen Eathorne, of Redwood (left), and Ann Matheson, of Waimairi Beach, spot the windows of the

rooms they used to work in.

PHOTOS: JOHN COSGROVE

STORIES OF adventures and

shenanigans had in the typing

pool or in the mail rooms

were recounted as 50 former

employees of the Post Office met

for the first time in 50 years.

The former administration

staff members had all worked at

some stage of their careers in the

old Christchurch chief post office

in the Cathedral Square.

Chief postmasters office reunion

committee chairman Rod

Cameron of Beckenham, said it

was a good time to reminisce.

Cameron, a former post

investigations officer, said that

over the past year a group of

ex-employees had been working

online organising the staff reunion

held at the Cashmere Club

on Saturday.

“It has been quite difficult

trying to track down all these

people with who we previously

worked with, but not seen for

some 50 years.

“We were fortunate however

in tracing and contacting a total

116 personal and managed to

get 50 people to come along to

the reunion.

“Many of those interested

in attending now live overseas

and were really keen to come

but unfortunately were unable,”

Cameron said.

Cameron started in 1961 as a

telegram boy before eventually

becoming an investigating officer

chasing up stolen mail or

fraud scams.

“Much of what we got up to on

the job we can’t tell anyone about

as people today would think

we’re mean or they wouldn’t get

the joke but we got away with it

in those days,” Cameron said.

His funniest memory was

discovering marijuana growing

implements and seeds sent from

overseas.

“We called the police who

followed the parcel to its destination

in a rural community, there

they discovered a massive growing

operation.

Fellow postal investigator

Wayne Butterworth of Spreydon

recalls starting in 1965 as a toll

operator having to juggle calls

because they only had 40 lines to

Wellington to work with.

“Then one day I was looking

out of a window overlooking

the square when I saw a woman

learner driver crash into the only

phone box we had in the square.”

Butterworth said: “ I was on 111

calls that day and had everyone

calling was to report it, all at the

same time.”

Ann Matheson of Waimari

Beach, was a typist during the

late 60s early 70s and recalled

the day a younger woman came

to work in a very, very short

mini skirt, “She was sent home

to change into something more

appropriate so she returned in

a maxi dress just to annoy the

supervisor,” she said.

Matheson recalls in 1970 being

paid $1195 per annum for their

work which came out to $39 per

week.

Fellow typist pool member

Colleen Eathorne of Redwood,

said she remembers they had

a great social life there and

many life-long relationships or

friendships were made there.

Shakespeare performance earns young

actress a trip to the Globe in London

• By Fiona Ellis

AN ASPIRING young actress is

set to go global as one of a team

of students bringing the plays of

Shakespeare to life.

Hornby High School’s Nadia

Officer will represent New

Zealand in London as a member

of the Shakespeare Globe

Centre New Zealand Young

Shakespeare Company 2022.

The year 12 student said it felt

both exciting and nerve-racking

to be the only student from

Christchurch chosen to represent

New Zealand overseas.

“I didn’t expect it at all,” Nadia

said.

A long-time fan of The Bard,

Nadia took part in the regional

SGC University of Otago Sheila

Winn Shakespeare Festival for

the fifth time this year, performing

a scene from A Midsummer

Night’s Dream with a group of

classmates.

For the first time, her team

was then selected to take part in

the national competition, and

she was then chosen for the SGC

national schools production in

Wellington last month.

“That’s where they choose the

people to go to London.”

Back in Christchurch, she

learned of her selection via an

unexpected phone call.

“I just started screaming

around the house, it was an

amazing thing to get the call.”

Over the course of the two

weeks in London in mid-2022,

the selected students will take

part in workshops at Shakespeare’s

Globe theatre, and will

also perform on stage.

Comedy was Nadia’s preferred

acting genre, although she was

also open to the challenge of

doing a tragedy, she said.

“When I’m on stage, I just love

looking at the audience and seeing

their faces and making them

laugh.

“Acting-wise I love performing

comedies . . . but if I were to read

a play I’d prefer to read a kind of

darker play.

Her favourite plays, Macbeth

and Measure for Measure, reflected

this.

“I really like the ideas in Macbeth

of toxic masculinity, as well

as all the gory bits and witches.

“[In Wellington] I did Measure

for Measure, which is a very dark

play.

“It was quite difficult for me,

so it was a really good learning

opportunity.”

Nadia said she had been

captivated by Shakespeare’s style

of writing, especially his distinctive

use of iambic pentameter

rhythm.

“It’s like a heartbeat within the

text.”

In the long-term future,

she hoped to make a career in

theatre, and as well as acting

she could see herself owning her

own theatre company, or

passing on her love for the

craft by becoming a drama

teacher.

In the short term, her goal was

to raise $10,000 to fund her trip

to London.

She planned to do this by

holding school events such as

mufti days, and by setting up

a Givealittle page, which she

planned to call Get Nadia to

the Globe.

Trick or treat: Witches, ghouls and ghosts

• By John Cosgrove

THERE WERE more treats than

tricks at Halloween on Sunday

night, as hundreds of children

gathered in small groups and

walked the streets in search of

candy.

Back for a second year in a

row, the Hoon Hay Community

Association chairwoman Jenny

Goodman said the group was

pleased with the turnout for the

event they hosted at the Hoon

Hay Community Centre.

“Due to Covid-19, we primarily

run this event as a stop on

children’s trick or treating route

around the streets of Hoon Hay,”

she said.

Association member Kaitlyn

White said the witches, goblins,

fairies, spacemen, ghouls and

ghosts started appearing for their

lollies and games an hour before

the event was due to start.

“It was great to see them all

walking along with their mums

and dads. We put on lots of simple

games for them to play, including

ten pin bowling using toilet rolls

as pins and large-scale Jenga plus

indoor games,” White said.

She added they had packed 240

packets of lollies for distribution,

which all went very quickly.

“It was busier than last year and

it was good to see so many parents

had also dressed up and got into

the spirit of it all,” White said.

SCARY FUN: Best friends Ariella Machiso 5, (left) and Zahara

Cording, 6, came dressed as a witch and a fairy.


BEWITCHED: Hazel Hope (left) and Scarlett O’Dell, both

eight years old, at the Halloween kids’ night.

SWEET TREAT: Kaitlyn White loads up Coda Bovitt, 4, with

lollies.

Guests Coming to Stay this Christmas?

Guest bedroom decor ideas that will

make you the host with the most!

Design the Room Around the Bed

A bed or headboard can become the main focal point of a

lovely guest bedroom. Just because you don’t lay your head

to rest in there every night, doesn’t mean the bed should not

be up to par design and comfort wise. Opt for a statement

headboard or bed — choose a fun fabric, a unique frame

design, or a simply a neutral fabric with a slight texture to

give it an edge. After all, this is your opportunity for you to

set the tone for the overall style and feel for the room you

are decorating.

Introduce a Sitting Area

Give guests a little seating area so they have somewhere

private to unwind that isn’t just the bed. A simple reading

nook will do, but if there’s enough room, add a bench for

your guest to rest their legs on and give them a spot to store

their luggage.

Mix Old and New

Create a transitional mix of old and new furniture. This

guest bedroom decor idea is your opportunity to save some

money, so, don’t be afraid to steal decor from other rooms

in the house or re-use your grandmother’s antique bed! A

subtle mix of vintage and modern furniture will make your

guest bedroom feel warm and lived in, rather than feeling

cold and uninviting.

Don’t Forget Fresh Flowers

Fresh flowers in the guest bedroom are a small but mighty

detail. They communicate that you’re so excited to have

them there!

Create an Accent Wall

Don’t be afraid to add a fun statement wall. This guest

bedroom decor idea is a must in our books! After all, a guest

bedroom is meant to inspire your guests, so have fun with it!

Whether you go bold with paint, funky with wallpaper, or

organic with texture, an accent wall is an easy way to add

interest to a space without making it feel overwhelming.

Provide Plenty of Storage

Few things are worse than staying overnight with your loved

one in a space with no storage. So, don’t make your guest

live out of their suitcase, provide a dresser or if there isn’t

even space, be sure to choose a nightstand with drawers.

Not only will it elevate the style of your room, but also make

things a little easier for your guests.
