Housing

development

won’t bear

name of

local hero

• By Fiona Ellis

A NEW development will not

bear the name of local hero

award winner Chris Walsh after

a heated debate on the issue of

naming roads after people.

The decision was made by

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board during a meeting on Monday.

Walsh, who is the founder and

managing director of Treetech

Specialist Treecare Ltd, spoke to

the board during the meeting,

contesting the approval of the

name Arbor Grove for the main

road of his 10.46ha development

off Main North Rd.

“I don’t think it’s fair that due

to a couple of recent road naming

decisions by developers that have

gone awry that that should be

imposed on us,” Walsh said.

In 2019, the board approved

an application by Harjit Singh to

name Gulati Lane after his

father.

However, in 2021 Harjit Singh

and his business, Nekita Enterprises

Ltd, were fined $125,000

by the Employment Relations

Authority after it was discovered

Singh’s business was operating a

dual payroll system, which paid

some employees with less than

minimum wage.

In July the board decided it

would not rename Gulati Lane,

although board member Ali

Jones requested that her vote

against this decision be recorded.

Five artists combine for our new group exhibition ‘Sum of the Parts’

November 27 - December 14; on show for a shorter duration to allow

for all-important Christmas pickup opportunities.

Contributing artists are Christchurch Kara Burrowes and local Little

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

the road from Dave Green in Rawene, and Debra Powell is from the

rural Waikato hamlet of Te Pahu.

Kara Burrowes is an artist and designer based in Christchurch. Her work

is tactile and experimental. Using recycled wood from demolition sites, she loves

the concept of transforming something quite ordinary into something precious and

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

use of pattern and repetition, method and process.”

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

strong narrative themes, exploring relationships between people and nature, playing

with convention, and infusing the result with a gentle humour.

Oxidized copper artist Jasmine Keir endeavours to create and understand the

alchemy of colours achievable via her artistic process; one which uses a variety of

natural ingredients to react with and manipulate the finish of her copper works.

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

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

and crystal, some are lighting devices others are designed to hang in the light.

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

observation of nature’s sacred geometry.”

Pedestrian refuges ‘not enough’

• By Fiona Ellis

A PROPOSAL to install

two pedestrian islands near

Langdons Rd is not enough to

keep everyone safe, a resident

says.

The city council is now seeking

public feedback on its proposal

to install the two islands on the

road bordering Northlink shopping

centre.

However, Ian Wilkie, who

drives to Northlink shopping

centre rather than make the

short journey across the road on

foot, is “far from happy” with the

proposal.

People with mobility problems,

such as his wife, would still

struggle to cross the road, he

said.

“You still have the problem of

getting from the pavement to the

refuge,” Wilkie said.

He would prefer lights or a pedestrian

crossing to be installed,

and the latter option would be

inexpensive for the city council

to install, he said.

“All we want is a couple of

coats of paint on the road.”

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Emma Norrish

said pedestrian islands were

a positive step and the board

was pushing for more changes in

future.

“We have been hearing that

pedestrians are having trouble

crossing Langdons Rd.

“These pedestrian refuges are

like a quick win, that there’s

money in the budget for, that we

can get it in this financial year

“That’s not where we’re stopping,

we do want more.”

Rather than a pedestrian crossing,

traffic lights by the shopping

centre were likely to be the

board’s preference, she said.

A city council investigation

into the safety situation of both

Langdons Rd and the wider area

was ongoing, and this would

help the board determine what

was needed.

“We’ve been asking since that

development opened for traffic

lights at the Langdons and

Greers Rd intersection, and just

more things down there to make

it safer, because I think it’s busier

than anybody expected it to be,”

Norrish said.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said a report on the pedestrian

islands will be presented to the

community board for a decision

following the public consultation,

which is set to end on

December 13.

“This is likely to be in February

2022,” Thomas said.

“If the proposals are approved

by the board, it is anticipated

that the works will be completed

before the end of the financial

year.”

Branches breaking from

tree creating a hazard

•From page 1

Last year, a “huge” branch

fell of the tree in calm weather,

blocking the driveways on

either side.

“Anybody underneath it, it

would have killed them.”

A lot of people walked

under the tree, including

children, residents and those

taking a shortcut to the bus

stop on Memorial Ave, he

said.

He believed the risk was

ongoing, as dry weather

could cause eucalyptus trees

to drop branches.

“There have been other

smaller branches come off

from time to time.”

Two weeks after the tree

was pruned earlier this year,

another branch fell off, he

said.

“Someone could have been

badly injured by it, or killed.”

A report by arborist Tony

Armstrong included in the

board’s meeting agenda last

week stated that the tree

would cost an estimated

$5000 to remove and replace.

During the meeting, the

board decided to look into

the possibility of residents

contributing to the removal

cost.

However, on Monday,

MacDonald said residents

would not be asked to contribute.

“Because of the health and

safety nature of it, it’s very,

very clear that our staff just

need to get on and do it.

He believed asking residents

to do this would likely

cost more in time than it

would save in funds.

“It’s certainly not unreasonable

for the council to do

within its existing budget.”

The tree was scheduled to

be removed by Christmas,

he said.

SET TO GO: The 21m

tall tree, which last year

dropped a large branch

in calm weather, will

be removed before

Christmas.

‘Dangerous

precedent’

• From page 1

A report in the meeting agenda

also stated Walsh took a leading role

in the protection and ongoing management

of distressed heritage trees

following the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, ensuring their survival.

Walsh was awarded a Local Hero

Award in 2016.

The decision to approve the name

Arbour Grove was approved by the

board in spite of objections voiced

by Ali Jones and Emma Twadell.

Jones moved the name Walsh Rd

be approved.

“I think the point [Walsh] made

with regards to ‘lets not tar everyone

with the same brush is absolutely

key’,” she said.

“I don’t see any other options

there that are better than the applicant’s

option.

“I think it will be a real shame

and set a dangerous precedent if

we go along with what the staff are

recommending here.”

Twaddell seconded the motion,

stating that it was important to

support those who helped in the

earthquake recovery.

Simon Britten did not support the

name Walsh Rd, saying there were

other ways to recognise those who

had made a significant contribution

to the city.

The board discussed the option

of putting the issue back to staff

for more information, but Walsh

objected to this, saying it would take

too long. Jones’ motion failed and

the board approved the decision to

name the road Arbor Grove.

Mural depicts ‘legacy’ of kindergarten

• By Fiona Ellis

THE LARGE river portrayed

in a new mural at a Merivale

kindergarten founded over 100

years ago represents its long

history.

For Sophie Connell, whose

family has attended Fairleigh

Kindergarten for three

generations, this is especially apt.

The mural was a gift to the

school from Connell and fellow

parent Hadley McLachlan.

They were present at its

unveiling on Monday alongside

other parents, some of whom

also attended as children. The

oldest graduate present was

85-year-old Ned Robilliard

(centre).

“I wanted to leave something at

the kindergarten that would be

enjoyed by the next generation,”

Connell said.

“I’m an urban designer so I’ve

always been interested in the

street art within Christchurch.”

Her mother, Kate Burtt

(second from right), attended the

kindergarten in the early 1950s.

Connell said she enjoyed her

own time there as a child and

both she and her sister chose to

send their own children there.

“There was that lovely feeling of

a connection to the past, but also

they weren’t just stuck in the past.”

Founded in Rossall St in 1915,

the kindergarten moved to its

current Garden Rd location

in 1929.

“It’s been a long-standing part

of the community.”

The mural depicted a nature

scene featuring birds such

as fantails, reflecting the

natural environment of the

kindergarten.

Fauna in her mother’s time

was also memorable.

“When she was there they

had sheep roaming around the

playground.”

“It’s changed a bit but . . . there

are lots of things that feel very

similar.”

The 8m x 2m work by street

artist Guy Ellis, known as

Dcypher, was installed in time

for the kindergarten open day

this Sunday.

The mural was “stunning” and

also educational for the children,

Connell said.

Kindergarten manager

Rebecca Glithero was pleased

with the work and said it was

a legacy.

UNVEILED:

Sophie Connell

(far right) cocommissioned

the mural, which

was unveiled on

Monday.

OLD SCHOOL:

Her mother Kate

Burtt (below,

front row second

left) attended

Fairleigh

Kindergarten in

the 1950s. ​

“The stream represents the

long history of the kindergarten.”

The children also gave their

input on the mural and what birds

and insects it should feature.

“We really wanted to make

something that was meaningful

to the children and the

kindergarten,” Glithero said.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Christmas is a great time for passing down recipes that are tried and true becoming

traditional family favourites. The owner of this recipe says her mum used to make

the pudding on Christmas Eve and would take the bowl and wooden spoon around

everyone in the house to stir the mixture and make a wish.

Make a Wish Christmas Pudding

You will need:

• 1 ½ tbsp butter

• 1 ½ tsp baking soda

• 1 ½ cups of boiling water

• 1 ½ cups flour

• 1 ½ cups mixed fruit or sultanas

• ¾ cup sugar

Method:

1. In a glass or stainless steel bowl,

melt the butter (over hot water)

and dissolve the baking soda.

2. Add the boiling water and

sugar.

3. When cool, add flour and

mixed fruit.

4. Stir all the ingredients together

and make a Christmas wish.

5. Cover bowl with a tea towel and

allow to stand overnight.

The next day:

• Place mixture into a greased

bowl or ice-cream container,

cover with tinfoil and place in a

pot of water, just deep enough

so the bowl doesn’t float.

• Boil pudding for four hours and

check regularly to make sure

the water has boiled dry. Top

up carefully with extra water if

required.

• Serve with heaps of Chantilly

cream!

Chantilly

Cream

You will need:

• 1 x bottle of cream

• ½ tsp vanilla essence

• 1 tbsp icing sugar to

sweeten

Method:

Put cream, vanilla essence

and icing sugar in a bowl and

whisk until light and fluffy with

softly formed peaks. Cover and

refrigerate until ready to serve.
