Playground equipment

may

not be

replaced

• By Fiona Ellis

BRAD HELPS often takes his young children to Halswell’s

Westbrooke Park playground, but by next summer this may no

longer be possible.

Play equipment built in the 1980s and 1990s is reaching the

end of its lifespan in Westbrooke Park, Shamrock Reserve, Wales

Reserve and Ridder Reserve, and it may be removed but not

replaced in two of these locations.

COMING SOON: Road names that reflect Māori heritage have been approved for the planned 10.1-hectare Mataī Springs subdivision at 68 Quaifes Rd.

Street names changed to reflect heritage

FOUR STREETS in a planned

Halswell subdivision will bear

Māori names following concerns

the names originally proposed

did not reflect local heritage.

The 10.1-hectare Mataī Springs

subdivision at 68 Quaifes Rd

is now set to contain Kākā Pl,

Toetoe St, Horopito St and

Kēkēwai Pl.

These names replace the names

Rush Close, Wineberry St,

Springhead St and Yellow Wood

Pl, originally proposed

by developers Fletcher

Living.

Co-Secretary of the Halswell

Residents’ Association David

Hawke said he was pleased the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board approved the

new names.

“The names that they’ve

approved are a big improvement

on the ones that were originally

put forward.”

The residents association was

trying to build awareness of the

area’s heritage, he said.

“The original names that were

put forward, they didn’t respect

enough the mana whenua, the

people who lived here.”

The community board also

approved the name Cress St in

place of Canopy St, while Mataī

Springs Drive and Fauna St

remain unchanged.

The issue was first raised by

Hawke in an October meeting

of the board, during which he

asked members not to approve

the initially proposed names.

A decision on the issue was

then delayed to allow time for

consultation.

The developer subsequently

met with board members and

representatives of the residents’

association and agreed to

reconsider the requested naming

options.

Community and stakeholder

manager Mark Doyle updated

the board of the steps taken to

consult with the community

during the meeting in which

the revised names were

approved.

He noted not all naming

options discussed with locals

were available or suitable.

In both the initial and revised

name requests, the names were

themed for the flora and fauna

of wetlands, as the developers

are also creating a wetland in the

area.

Fletcher Living declined to

comment.

Submissions support cycleway

• By Fiona Ellis

THE MAJORITY of 424

submissions support the third

and final section of the Nor’west

Arc Cycleway, a city council

analysis has revealed.

Just 12 per cent of submitters

opposed the construction of

the cycleway, which would link

Canterbury University to Jellie

Park and Harewood Rd, and

a further 23 per cent were

neutral.

However, design details

divided the submitters on the

project, which has received $10.5

million in funding as part of

the Government ‘shovel ready’

projects.

Safety and parking were

frequent concerns.

Submitters were split on the

two proposed designs for Ilam

Rd.

A one-way cycleway on each

side of the road was favoured

by 55 per cent of submitters

who selected an option, while

45 per cent preferred a two-way

cycleway on the west side of the

road.

Of those who supported

the first option, safety was a

common reason, cited by 32

submitters.

Ilam Rd residents W and PJ

Gilroy said it was obviously the

safer option.

“We will only have to look one

way for approaching cyclists as

we exit our drive and we will

have a clear view of vehicles

approaching from the right. At

present, our view is obstructed

by vehicles parked close to the

exit from our garage and drive.”

University lecturer Mads

Thomsen, who said he cycled to

the university every day, called

the first option “1000 times

better, safer, and more efficient”

as it would reduce the need for

cyclists to cross the road.

The need to retain parking

spaces was a popular reason

among those who favoured

the second option, cited by 25

submitters.

Mortlocks Lawyers Partner

Guy Mortlock favoured a twoway

cycleway, stating there was

already a shortage of parking

in the area, especially with high

demand from students.

“It is important to retain as

much parking as possible, while

still making cycling safer than it

currently is,” he said.

Safety was also cited as a factor

by 12 submitters who preferred

the second option.

Manager Sam Sloane stated he

was afraid a cycleway in front

of the clinic, located on the east

side of Ilam Rd would create an

instead.

Submitters were also split on

the west side of the road was

preferred by 62 per cent of

submitters who selected an

option, while 38 per cent

preferred a shared path on the

west side of the road.

Safety was a top concern by

those who preferred the first

option, cited by 40 submitters.

For example, submitter Paul

Ainsworth said a shared path

would be disastrous.

“Having scooters, cycles etc

travelling at 30km/h in the same

area as pedestrians will only lead

to serious accidents,” he said.

Fourteen submitters who

chose this option also wanted to

avoid poor user behaviour they

believed would be an issue with a

shared path.

Submitter Richard Ibbitt

said his experience with shared

pathways had not been good.

“The pedestrian usually has

to give way to cyclists, not all of

whom seem to appreciate that

a shared space means that all

parties using the pathways have

to be equally considerate.”

Although the second option

of a shared path was less

popular overall, all of those who

lived along this section of the

route and made a choice between

the two designs selected this

option.

Maintaining on-road car

parking was the reason cited

by 30 submitters who chose

this option.

each side of Ilam Rd, while 45 per cent preferred a two-way cycleway on the west side of

the road.

PHOTO: CHRISTCHURCH CITY COUNCIL

Final decision expected next year

Aorangi Rd resident Emma

King stated loss of car parking

was a concern.

However, safety was also cited

by five submitters who prefer

this option, including student

Aestival Britten, who travelled on

Aorangi Rd most days.

“Shared paths provide a good

option as there’s enough space

for cyclists to pass slower scooter

users and scooter users to pass

slower pedestrians without

jostling for space,” Britten said.

The planned design for the

intersection of Aorangi and

Wairakei Rds also caused a

divide among the 53 submitters

who shared their opinions.

The design put to the public

would stop through traffic and

right turns for cars travelling in

either direction along Aorangi

Rd.

Twenty-one submitters supported

the design, citing safety

benefits.

Kathy Beswick said she liked to

cycle but that the current intersection

was horrendous and she

avoided using it

“I fully support this aspect of

the plan,” Beswick said.

However, more submitters opposed

the design, with 25 people

objecting due to access issues and

predicting traffic on side roads

would increase.

Submitter Alastair Christie

said strongly opposed the blocking

off through traffic and traffic

turning right.

“This intersection as this will

make it much more difficult for

me to access a large part of my

city,” Christie said.

The cycleway section has

received $10.5 million in funding

as part of the Government ‘shovel

ready’ projects.

The cycleway hearing panel is

set to make its recommendation

to the urban development and

transport committee early next

year, with the committee to make

the final decision.

A report included in the

agenda of the hearings panel by

city council senior engagement

adviser Tessa Zant requested the

panel to recommend a one-way

cycleway is installed on each side

of Ilam Rd, varying between 1.8

and 2m wide.

It also requested a 4m shared

path from the corner of Jellie

Park up to Truman Rd, and from

there a 3m two-way cycleway

along Aorangi Rd to

the intersection with Wairakei

Rd.

The report recommended the

intersection remain closed to

through traffic and right-turning

traffic.

If the project is approved, work

is expected to begin in mid to

late 2022.

Community feedback would

contribute to concept plans

• From page 1

The city council is asking for

community input on the use

of space in the area, located

inside the city’s fastest-growing

suburb. Last year 14 per cent of

new housing consents by the city

council were for Halswell builds.

Feedback on the playgrounds is

open until December

13, and Helps planned

to share his views.

He only supported

removing some play

areas if others were

not just replaced but

expanded, he said.

“Otherwise you’ve

just got more kids and

less playgrounds, I

don’t think that would

be good.”

Westbrooke Park playground

was old, but this did not worry

him as long as it was safe.

City council community parks

manager Al Hardy said it might

be better to upgrade playgrounds

in two parks and have more open

space in the other two.

“We only have a limited pool

of money to spend on these four

reserves and we want to make

sure that we spend it in a way that

meets the needs of local families,”

Hardy said.

Head of parks Andrew

Rutledge said the four parks were

located close to each other.

“Ridder Reserve is 220m from

Westbrooke Park, Westbrooke

Anne

Galloway

Park is 180m from Wales Reserve

and Wales Reserve is 320m from

Shamrock Reserve,” Rutledge

said.

“We have an opportunity to

improve quality and variety of

play equipment in these parks,

while keeping play within

walking distance of homes.

“As an outcome

some equipment could

be removed and not

replaced.”

Community feedback

would contribute to a

concept plan for each

park, and the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board would

be asked to approve the

plans next May, he said.

“The concept plans will

be implemented with

construction expected late 2022

to early 2023.”

Halswell Ward councillor

Anne Galloway said needs had

changed in the decades since the

equipment was built, although

this did not mean all equipment

should be thrown out.

However, playing in nature

without equipment dictating

what children could do was

beneficial.

“Being more creative in what

we offer our children is good, I

think,” Galloway said.

New reserve areas would meet

the needs of new subdivisions,

she said.

THE CREATIVITY of Hornby

school children has helped raise

about $1500 to support children

with cancer.

The Festival of Flowers was

held on Saturday, giving pupils

from Gilberthorpe Primary, St

Bernadettes Primary, Hornby

Primary, South Hornby Primary

and Hornby High School the opportunity

to display their floral

creations to the community for a

gold coin entry fee.

Exhibits ranged from floral

arrangements to plant-themed

Bloomin’ good day at flower festival

drawings, models and poetry.

Wigram Lions helped organise

the event to support Camp Quality’s

2022 summer camp, and

also raffled hampers with items

gifted by local businesses.

Youth team chairman Syd

Horgan said the event had a

“feel-good factor” for adults as

well as children.

“For many, it’s been some time

since they were at school, and

they were literally blown away

by the talents of many students,”

Horgan said.

The Covid-19 pandemic posed

an extra challenge, causing the

festival to be pushed back from

the original October date.

It was not easy to hold such

an event amid other end-of-year

events and the Lions appreciated

the effort of principals and

teachers, he said.

FEEL-GOOD FACTOR: Visitors take in the Festival of Flowers on

Saturday.

FUNDRAISER: South Hornby

School’s Mackenzie was one of many

pupils to contribute to a bid to raise

money for Camp Quality.

Time to

celebrate

all our

successes

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e

lelei. Bula Vinaka. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste.

Kumusta. Haere mai haere mai ki Te Kura

Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to

the Hornby High School community.

As always, this is my favourite time of year. I

love celebrating the success of others, and we

have seen some fabulous successes from our

students this year. We celebrated the best in

academic, sporting, and cultural success at

our prize giving last week. We are so proud

of the number of students who have gained

university scholarships for 2022, and as we

celebrated our leavers it was amazing to see

the number of students whose intention is to

follow a course of university study in 2022.

University study isn’t the right pathway for

everyone, and we also see many students

who are passionate about following their own

pathway into trades training too.

Similarly our school sports teams have had

a great summer sports season, with success

across a range of codes. We are very grateful

for the coaches from both within and outside

the school who nurture and support our

young people in their sporting activities. I was

particularly gratified to receive an approach

from a group of prominent Hornby volleyball

players intent on putting even more energy

and “zip” into our volleyball programme. They

well remember the halcyon days of national

prominence for Hornby volleyball.

I commented at our prize giving that we need

to remember that success comes in many

forms, and is different things for different

people. In this age of significant mental

challenge for so many, there are those for

whom simply functioning on a daily basis

is a significant achievement. Recognising

this range of different people, my greatest

encouragement to all of our rangatahi is

that they aspire to be the best version of

themselves that they can be. That is the best

that any one of us can ask.

In the meantime, thank you to everyone in our

community who has supported us. I would

like to take this opportunity to wish you all a

great Christmas season and a safe and restful

summer.

Rewards for commitment

and effort at prizegiving

On Wednesday, November 17,

we held our Senior Prizegiving.

This is always a very special

event on the Hornby High

School calendar and although

our format was considerably

different, the occasion was no

less auspicious.

Unfortunately we were unable

to allow an audience to attend,

which meant that for the

first time whānau could not

watch their tamariki receive

their awards. However, we

were lucky enough to have

Mr Carter behind the camera

streaming the event via a

GoogleMeet, allowing whānau

and our junior students to

watch.

Congratulations to all of our

prizewinners on a highly

successful school year.

We would like to acknowledge

our sponsors for the event:

ILLUMINATING: Carl Seaward spends $55,000 each year on his Christmas light show, reportedly one of the biggest of its kind in Australasia.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

Christmas wonderland switched on

CARL SEAWARD has a vision. He wants

to see people, young and old, experience

the joy of Christmas.

So, at his Shands Rd home, the retired

60-year-old has reportedly built one of the

biggest interactive displays of its type in

Australasia.

Every year, tens of thousands of

Cantabrians flock to Seaward’s property

in Prebbleton. He flicked the switch to

open his Christmas wonderland for the

2021 season on Saturday night.

“This is a lightshow, of which you are

actually a part of, you are in the middle of

it. That’s unique,” Seaward said.

And in spite of so many Christmasrelated

events being cancelled this year,

Seaward has vowed to soldier on.

“Gotta do it, gotta do it, no matter

what happens. Okay, work in with the

restrictions, but make it happen for

everybody,” he said.

“I love life, and I love the joy this

experience actually brings to so many

people.”

On opening night, the light show

attracted more than 800 people, despite

the rain.

“Everyone was very enthusiastic and

very excited, everyone we talked to were

loving it.”

Seaward’s partner Maureen passed away

one year ago after a long battle with motor

neurone disease. He wants to continue

her legacy and raise awareness for the

untreatable disease.

“Maureen was by my side right from

day one with this. We always used to tell

people, this whole thing started because

34 years ago she started collecting the

Christmas Santa bears. And that’s how

her collection outgrew the house.”

The keen handyman said the show is

different each year, as he can only display

about 15 per cent of his collection.

“I’m good for another 10 years. By that

stage I might be finding it a bit hard to be

climbing up and down on the roofs but,

as long as I can, I’m going to keep it

going.”

He said the entry fee of $10 per adult

and $5 per child helps towards the cost of

funding the lights, which he spent $55,000

on each year.

The light show is on every day, 8.30-

11.30pm, wet or fine, to December 30,

including Christmas Day.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

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

Start a new

Christmas tradition

What could be better than starting some new family traditions this year? Christmas traditions are memories

in the making and help spread a little festive cheer whether with your loved ones or out in the community.

10 great ideas to help make Christmas a magical time of the year

1. Create a Christmas playlist with some of

your favourite carols and songs – play it

loud and every day, if that’s your thing.

Or plan a pre-Christmas sing-along

evening – don’t forget to supply the song

sheet so everyone can join in too.

2. Get into the spirit of Christmas by getting

together with family or friends to help

decorate each other’s houses – turn up

the music, drink the wine and go all out

to deck the halls.

3. Make and send homemade Christmas

cards – there’s nothing more exciting

than getting mail, right? Or how about

writing some generic ones and dropping

them into your nearest retirement

home to brighten up an elderly person’s

Christmas.

4. Buy your family Christmas tee-shirts or

Santa hats to wear on the day and don’t

forget to take a family selfie.

5. Fill a shoebox with gifts for a child, wrap

it with a bow, and deliver to the nearest

community gift tree – check with your

local library and label with age and

gender.

6. Have a yearly family, friends or neighbour

outdoor games night with drinks and

nibbles leading up to the big day – think

Pétanque, hoopla, mini golf, giant chess,

or croquet.

7. Take a leaf out of Iceland’s traditional

‘Jolabokaflod’ or Christmas Book Flood,

and give a book as a gift on Christmas

Eve each year – don’t forget to write

inside the cover who it’s from and the

date.

8. Make a list of must see Christmas movies

to watch a week before Christmas day

Beautiful range

of Christmas

gifts instore

• Replacement batteries

fitted from $10

• Strap replacement

and tick off the ones you’ve watched.

Don’t forget the popcorn and hot

chocolate or nibbles and wine.

9. Make and give a handmade ornament

as a gift each year – the lucky receiver’s

Christmas tree will be covered with

beautiful, handmade memories.

10. Make homemade hot chocolate on

Christmas Eve or on Christmas morning

to drink while the presents are being

opened – decorate with whipped cream,

grated chocolate, marshmallows, or

crushed candy canes.
