Housing<br />

development<br />

won’t bear<br />

name of<br />

local hero<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

A NEW development will not<br />

bear the name of local hero<br />

award winner Chris Walsh after<br />

a heated debate on the issue of<br />

naming roads after people.<br />

The decision was made by<br />

the Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board during a meeting on Monday.<br />

Walsh, who is the founder and<br />

managing director of Treetech<br />

Specialist Treecare Ltd, spoke to<br />

the board during the meeting,<br />

contesting the approval of the<br />

name Arbor Grove for the main<br />

road of his 10.46ha development<br />

off Main North Rd.<br />

“I don’t think it’s fair that due<br />

to a couple of recent road naming<br />

decisions by developers that have<br />

gone awry that that should be<br />

imposed on us,” Walsh said.<br />

In 2019, the board approved<br />

an application by Harjit Singh to<br />

name Gulati Lane after his<br />

father.<br />

However, in <strong>2021</strong> Harjit Singh<br />

and his business, Nekita Enterprises<br />

Ltd, were fined $1<strong>25</strong>,000<br />

by the Employment Relations<br />

Authority after it was discovered<br />

Singh’s business was operating a<br />

dual payroll system, which paid<br />

some employees with less than<br />

minimum wage.<br />

In July the board decided it<br />

would not rename Gulati Lane,<br />

although board member Ali<br />

Jones requested that her vote<br />

against this decision be recorded.<br />

Five artists combine for our new group exhibition ‘Sum of the Parts’<br />

<strong>November</strong> 27 - December 14; on show for a shorter duration to allow<br />

for all-important Christmas pickup opportunities.<br />

Contributing artists are Christchurch Kara Burrowes and local Little<br />

River sculptor Jane Downes. Jasmine Keir’s studio is in Kerikeri, just up<br />

the road from Dave Green in Rawene, and Debra Powell is from the<br />

rural Waikato hamlet of Te Pahu.<br />

Kara Burrowes is an artist and designer based in Christchurch. Her work<br />

is tactile and experimental. Using recycled wood from demolition sites, she loves<br />

the concept of transforming something quite ordinary into something precious and<br />

alluring. “Through reinterpretation I like to create a new language, often through the<br />

use of pattern and repetition, method and process.”<br />

Debra Powell’s alias in the pottery studio is ‘Little Betty’. Her ceramic work has<br />

strong narrative themes, exploring relationships between people and nature, playing<br />

with convention, and infusing the result with a gentle humour.<br />

Oxidized copper artist Jasmine Keir endeavours to create and understand the<br />

alchemy of colours achievable via her artistic process; one which uses a variety of<br />

natural ingredients to react with and manipulate the finish of her copper works.<br />

Dave Green creates whimsical arrangements; ‘Lightshifter’ sculptures. His art is about changing the form<br />

and shape of found, often discarded, objects - both natural and manmade. Reborn out of pre-loved glass<br />

and crystal, some are lighting devices others are designed to hang in the light.<br />

Sculptor Jane Downes’ delicate themes are fabricated in steel. ‘Arboresque’ a study of tree forms, an<br />

observation of nature’s sacred geometry.”<br />

Pedestrian refuges ‘not enough’<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

A PROPOSAL to install<br />

two pedestrian islands near<br />

Langdons Rd is not enough to<br />

keep everyone safe, a resident<br />

says.<br />

The city council is now seeking<br />

public feedback on its proposal<br />

to install the two islands on the<br />

road bordering Northlink shopping<br />

centre.<br />

However, Ian Wilkie, who<br />

drives to Northlink shopping<br />

centre rather than make the<br />

short journey across the road on<br />

foot, is “far from happy” with the<br />

proposal.<br />

People with mobility problems,<br />

such as his wife, would still<br />

struggle to cross the road, he<br />

said.<br />

“You still have the problem of<br />

getting from the pavement to the<br />

refuge,” Wilkie said.<br />

He would prefer lights or a pedestrian<br />

crossing to be installed,<br />

and the latter option would be<br />

inexpensive for the city council<br />

to install, he said.<br />

“All we want is a couple of<br />

coats of paint on the road.”<br />

Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board chairwoman Emma Norrish<br />

said pedestrian islands were<br />

a positive step and the board<br />

was pushing for more changes in<br />

future.<br />

“We have been hearing that<br />

pedestrians are having trouble<br />

crossing Langdons Rd.<br />

“These pedestrian refuges are<br />

like a quick win, that there’s<br />

money in the budget for, that we<br />

can get it in this financial year<br />

“That’s not where we’re stopping,<br />

we do want more.”<br />

Rather than a pedestrian crossing,<br />

traffic lights by the shopping<br />

centre were likely to be the<br />

board’s preference, she said.<br />

A city council investigation<br />

into the safety situation of both<br />

Langdons Rd and the wider area<br />

was ongoing, and this would<br />

help the board determine what<br />

was needed.<br />

“We’ve been asking since that<br />

development opened for traffic<br />

lights at the Langdons and<br />

Greers Rd intersection, and just<br />

more things down there to make<br />

it safer, because I think it’s busier<br />

than anybody expected it to be,”<br />

Norrish said.<br />

City council transport operations<br />

manager Steffan Thomas<br />

said a report on the pedestrian<br />

islands will be presented to the<br />

community board for a decision<br />

following the public consultation,<br />

which is set to end on<br />

December 13.<br />

“This is likely to be in February<br />

2022,” Thomas said.<br />

“If the proposals are approved<br />

by the board, it is anticipated<br />

that the works will be completed<br />

before the end of the financial<br />

year.”<br />

In Brief<br />

Branches breaking from<br />

tree creating a hazard<br />

•From page 1<br />

Last year, a “huge” branch<br />

fell of the tree in calm weather,<br />

blocking the driveways on<br />

either side.<br />

“Anybody underneath it, it<br />

would have killed them.”<br />

A lot of people walked<br />

under the tree, including<br />

children, residents and those<br />

taking a shortcut to the bus<br />

stop on Memorial Ave, he<br />

said.<br />

He believed the risk was<br />

ongoing, as dry weather<br />

could cause eucalyptus trees<br />

to drop branches.<br />

“There have been other<br />

smaller branches come off<br />

from time to time.”<br />

Two weeks after the tree<br />

was pruned earlier this year,<br />

another branch fell off, he<br />

said.<br />

“Someone could have been<br />

badly injured by it, or killed.”<br />

A report by arborist Tony<br />

Armstrong included in the<br />

board’s meeting agenda last<br />

week stated that the tree<br />

would cost an estimated<br />

$5000 to remove and replace.<br />

During the meeting, the<br />

board decided to look into<br />

the possibility of residents<br />

contributing to the removal<br />

cost.<br />

However, on Monday,<br />

MacDonald said residents<br />

would not be asked to contribute.<br />

“Because of the health and<br />

safety nature of it, it’s very,<br />

very clear that our staff just<br />

need to get on and do it.<br />

He believed asking residents<br />

to do this would likely<br />

cost more in time than it<br />

would save in funds.<br />

“It’s certainly not unreasonable<br />

for the council to do<br />

within its existing budget.”<br />

The tree was scheduled to<br />

be removed by Christmas,<br />

he said.<br />

SET TO GO: The 21m<br />

tall tree, which last year<br />

dropped a large branch<br />

in calm weather, will<br />

be removed before<br />

Christmas.<br />

‘Dangerous<br />

precedent’<br />

• From page 1<br />

A report in the meeting agenda<br />

also stated Walsh took a leading role<br />

in the protection and ongoing management<br />

of distressed heritage trees<br />

following the February 22, 2011,<br />

earthquake, ensuring their survival.<br />

Walsh was awarded a Local Hero<br />

Award in 2016.<br />

The decision to approve the name<br />

Arbour Grove was approved by the<br />

board in spite of objections voiced<br />

by Ali Jones and Emma Twadell.<br />

Jones moved the name Walsh Rd<br />

be approved.<br />

“I think the point [Walsh] made<br />

with regards to ‘lets not tar everyone<br />

with the same brush is absolutely<br />

key’,” she said.<br />

“I don’t see any other options<br />

there that are better than the applicant’s<br />

option.<br />

“I think it will be a real shame<br />

and set a dangerous precedent if<br />

we go along with what the staff are<br />

recommending here.”<br />

Twaddell seconded the motion,<br />

stating that it was important to<br />

support those who helped in the<br />

earthquake recovery.<br />

Simon Britten did not support the<br />

name Walsh Rd, saying there were<br />

other ways to recognise those who<br />

had made a significant contribution<br />

to the city.<br />

The board discussed the option<br />

of putting the issue back to staff<br />

for more information, but Walsh<br />

objected to this, saying it would take<br />

too long. Jones’ motion failed and<br />

the board approved the decision to<br />

name the road Arbor Grove.<br />

Mural depicts ‘legacy’ of kindergarten<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

THE LARGE river portrayed<br />

in a new mural at a Merivale<br />

kindergarten founded over 100<br />

years ago represents its long<br />

history.<br />

For Sophie Connell, whose<br />

family has attended Fairleigh<br />

Kindergarten for three<br />

generations, this is especially apt.<br />

The mural was a gift to the<br />

school from Connell and fellow<br />

parent Hadley McLachlan.<br />

They were present at its<br />

unveiling on Monday alongside<br />

other parents, some of whom<br />

also attended as children. The<br />

oldest graduate present was<br />

85-year-old Ned Robilliard<br />

(centre).<br />

“I wanted to leave something at<br />

the kindergarten that would be<br />

enjoyed by the next generation,”<br />

Connell said.<br />

“I’m an urban designer so I’ve<br />

always been interested in the<br />

street art within Christchurch.”<br />

Her mother, Kate Burtt<br />

(second from right), attended the<br />

kindergarten in the early 1950s.<br />

Connell said she enjoyed her<br />

own time there as a child and<br />

both she and her sister chose to<br />

send their own children there.<br />

“There was that lovely feeling of<br />

a connection to the past, but also<br />

they weren’t just stuck in the past.”<br />

Founded in Rossall St in 1915,<br />

the kindergarten moved to its<br />

current Garden Rd location<br />

in 1929.<br />

“It’s been a long-standing part<br />

of the community.”<br />

The mural depicted a nature<br />

scene featuring birds such<br />

as fantails, reflecting the<br />

natural environment of the<br />

kindergarten.<br />

Fauna in her mother’s time<br />

was also memorable.<br />

“When she was there they<br />

had sheep roaming around the<br />

playground.”<br />

“It’s changed a bit but . . . there<br />

are lots of things that feel very<br />

similar.”<br />

The 8m x 2m work by street<br />

artist Guy Ellis, known as<br />

Dcypher, was installed in time<br />

for the kindergarten open day<br />

this Sunday.<br />

The mural was “stunning” and<br />

also educational for the children,<br />

Connell said.<br />

Kindergarten manager<br />

Rebecca Glithero was pleased<br />

with the work and said it was<br />

a legacy.<br />

UNVEILED:<br />

Sophie Connell<br />

(far right) cocommissioned<br />

the mural, which<br />

was unveiled on<br />

Monday.<br />

OLD SCHOOL:<br />

Her mother Kate<br />

Burtt (below,<br />

front row second<br />

left) attended<br />

Fairleigh<br />

Kindergarten in<br />

the 1950s. ​<br />

“The stream represents the<br />

long history of the kindergarten.”<br />

The children also gave their<br />

input on the mural and what birds<br />

and insects it should feature.<br />

“We really wanted to make<br />

something that was meaningful<br />

to the children and the<br />

kindergarten,” Glithero said.<br />

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas<br />

Christmas is a great time for passing down recipes that are tried and true becoming<br />

traditional family favourites. The owner of this recipe says her mum used to make<br />

the pudding on Christmas Eve and would take the bowl and wooden spoon around<br />

everyone in the house to stir the mixture and make a wish.<br />

Make a Wish Christmas Pudding<br />

You will need:<br />

• 1 ½ tbsp butter<br />

• 1 ½ tsp baking soda<br />

• 1 ½ cups of boiling water<br />

• 1 ½ cups flour<br />

• 1 ½ cups mixed fruit or sultanas<br />

• ¾ cup sugar<br />

Method:<br />

1. In a glass or stainless steel bowl,<br />

melt the butter (over hot water)<br />

and dissolve the baking soda.<br />

2. Add the boiling water and<br />

sugar.<br />

3. When cool, add flour and<br />

mixed fruit.<br />

4. Stir all the ingredients together<br />

and make a Christmas wish.<br />

5. Cover bowl with a tea towel and<br />

allow to stand overnight.<br />

The next day:<br />

• Place mixture into a greased<br />

bowl or ice-cream container,<br />

cover with tinfoil and place in a<br />

pot of water, just deep enough<br />

so the bowl doesn’t float.<br />

• Boil pudding for four hours and<br />

check regularly to make sure<br />

the water has boiled dry. Top<br />

up carefully with extra water if<br />

required.<br />

• Serve with heaps of Chantilly<br />

cream!<br />

Chantilly<br />

Cream<br />

You will need:<br />

• 1 x bottle of cream<br />

• ½ tsp vanilla essence<br />

• 1 tbsp icing sugar to<br />

sweeten<br />

and icing sugar in a bowl and<br />

whisk until light and fluffy with<br />

softly formed peaks. Cover and<br />

refrigerate until ready to serve.<br />
