Addressing

traffic

issues on

community

board

agenda

• By Fiona Ellis

SOLVING TRAFFIC issues,

promoting community safety

and celebrating different cultures

will be among the priorities

for the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

this year.

Board chairwoman

Bridget

Williams said

the board aims

to improve traffic

flow with the

installation of

right-turning

arrows in three

locations.

These are

Maidstone Rd and Waimairi

Bridget

Williams

Rd intersection, the Northwood

Boulevard and Main North Rd

intersection, and the Wairakei Rd

and Grahams Rd intersection.

“There’s a lot of those right

turns and you’re getting cars in

the middle of the road, waiting

and waiting and waiting,” Williams

said.

“[You’re] not letting traffic go

through if you don’t give that

right turn.”

The construction of a shared

footpath along Gardiners Rd was

also something the board would

push for.

Mami’s loving life in the pool

LIFEGUARD AND swim

instructor Mami Mori has loved

the water all her life.

Mori grew up in Japan where

she attended swimming lessons

with her brother from the age of

nine.

They then caught the bus to

training three times a week and,

by junior high school, Mori

was a competitive freestyle and

breaststroke swimmer.

“My mother couldn’t swim so

she wanted us to be able to,” she

said.

“I wasn’t as strong as my

brother, he was a national rep –

but I loved swimming.”

Not only is Mori a Swimsmart

tutor at Pioneer Recreation

and Sport Centre, she’s also

a lifeguard at Jellie Park and

Waltham Pool.

Mori started her job

as a lifeguard last summer

and just two weeks into the role

she found herself jumping in to

save a boy who was struggling

and at risk of drowning at Jellie

Park.

“What I had been taught to

look for was exactly what I saw

happening in the pool, making

the training very valuable,” she

said.

“I didn’t need to think about

what to do, I reacted to the

situation and jumped into the

water immediately.

“He was a bit shocked but he

was okay. I was a bit shocked

SPLASH: Mami Mori is a lifeguard at Jellie Park Recreation and Sport Centre.

too, but it gave me confidence

knowing I could make the right

decisions and help those in

trouble.”

Mori said it’s not just children

who can panic or get into trouble

at the swimming pool.

“If people haven’t learned

to swim as children they

can sometimes lack skills or

confidence in the water,” she

said. One of the reasons she

enjoys teaching swim classes is

to help people grow up feeling

happy and confident in the water,

especially as there’s so many

beaches, rivers and lakes in New

Zealand.

Her students are primary-aged

children and pre-schoolers, who

are “very cute” and have a lot of

energy, she said.

“They’re so enthusiastic,

though sometimes it’s hard to get

them to listen.”

When she’s working as a

lifeguard, she keeps a watchful

eye on everyone, especially

children.

She said with the warm

weather bringing more people

to the pool, lifeguards have to

constantly monitor the area

and look out for any potential

hazards.

“What I love best about my

job is seeing the improvement of

the students in the swimming

classes and, as a lifeguard, I can

PHOTOS: NEWSLINE

help ensure people are safe and

having fun,” she said.

When asked if she had

any advice for the public this

summer she said: “I would say

listen to the lifeguards at all

times and respect other pool

users and staff. And if you are a

parent or caregiver, help us out

by looking out for your children

too, actively supervise undereights

and keep under fives

within an arm’s reach.”

Everything ran so smoothly and efficiently. Cameron certainly knows what

ROOM TO GROW: Neighbourhood Trust general manager Dan Hyzl says

public input will help determine what the McFaddens Rd community

garden will look like.

Survey to determine

what you want from

neighbourhood garden

• By Fiona Ellis

PREPARATIONS are

under way for a community

garden aiming to help

people grow together,

physically and mentally.

A survey is now open

for those in St Albans,

Mairehau, Shirley, or the

surrounding suburbs to

give input on the McFaddens

Rd garden.

Neighbourhood Trust

general manager Dan Hyzl

said opinions on the 130m2

garden will help shape the

final outcome.

“It’s a survey of what you

would like in the gardens

and maybe what you don’t

need in the gardens. We’ll

take everything into consideration,”

Hyzl said.

Non-profit organisation

The Green Lab has partnered

with the trust to help

design the garden.

In addition to vegetable

• From page 1

“It’s a long stretch of

road, there’s a lot of residential

housing and that

sort of thing. There’s demand

for providing a safe

walkway, for both cyclists

and walkers.”

Controlling traffic speed

around neighbourhoods

and schools was another

priority, she said.

Last year the board

kick-started Avonhead and

Russley Community Safety

Initiative in collaboration

with the Christchurch

North Community Patrol,

police, Neighbourhood

Support Canterbury and

Ilam MP Sarah Pallett.

It carried out a survey

beds, options such as a play

area, composting facilities

and a polytunnel for yearround

growing are also

being considered.

The survey also

asks who is interested

in contributing to or

benefiting from the garden,

and how often they would

use the garden.

Those who the trust

particularly aimed to

help with the garden were

young families, people

isolated within the community,

and those with

mental health needs, Hyzl

said.

The outdoor space would

provide a place to “grow

together” and promote

healthy eating.

“There’s a lot of people in

the community who might

not be eating as healthy as

they should, eating processed

food.”

In the future, the trust

to identify safety concerns

of people who lived in the

area, which Williams said

would be followed up this

year.

“We’ll see how we could

put together some kind of

community meeting or

workshop to help residents

and neighbourhoods look

after themselves.”

The board was now looking

at expanding the safety

initiative to Bishopdale and

Strowan, although no date

had been set for this.

Improving community

facilitates such as the public

toilets at Bishopdale Mall

would be another focus.

Board priorities this

year were a balance of core

also hoped to offer cooking

courses incorporating the

produce grown in the community

garden.

“Lots of the ingredients

from the community

garden could be used for

these cooking courses for

different ethnic groups that

are in our community as

well.”

Work towards clearing

the garden site was under

way, and Hyzl said he

hoped a grand opening

would take place sometime

in April.

He estimated the project

would have a final price tag

of between $8000-$12,000,

and was pleased with the

support it had received so

far, including help from

volunteers.

A link to the survey,

which closes on January

20, can be found on the

Neighbourhood Trust

facebook page.

Speed around schools a priority

services and social and environmental

components,

she said.

This included Culture

Galore, set to be held with

board support in Ilam’s Ray

Blank Park on February 19.

“Organisations of the

community from all different

ethnicities come

together and it’s a big

celebration of culture.”

It was likely to be another

year of uncertainty owing

to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The board would

love to thank everyone,

especially community

groups and active citizens,

for getting involved in their

community during these

difficult times.”

Receiving award ‘absolutely amazing’

• From page 1

The ships on which colonists

sailed from England had “awful”

conditions, she said.

“One of my great-grandmothers

only just made it. Her sister

had died on the ship, and as they

usually did, they’d wrapped her

in a bit of sailcloth and chucked

her over the side.”

The captain then turned to

her great-great-grandmother

and asked whether one-year-old

Sarah Ann was alive.

“At which point my greatgrandmother

apparently opened

her eyes and looked out.”

She survived to have nine children

of her own.

However, her shipboard brush

with what was probably pneumonia

meant that for the rest of her

life had the use of only one lung.

“She liked to joke with doctors

who would say: ‘I have to tell you

there’s something wrong with

your lungs’, and she’d say: ‘Is

there really?’ ”

A trip to the cemetery as a

teenager made a striking impression

on Jill, which she credits

with sparking her interest in

genealogy.

“I said to my father: ‘Who are

all these people, they’ve got the

same name as me’.”

More questions followed:

Where were they from? What

had they done?

Older relatives were a good

source of information, revealing

information that was unrecorded,

she said.

“Once you start quizzing them,

funny little stories will come

out.”

The “mad habit” of genealogy

was part of a wider interest in

history.

Most of her genealogy work

involved helping others, she said.

Society committee meetings

always brought with them new

emails and letters from people

researching their families.

The majority of them were

from New Zealand, but they also

came from Australia, the United

Kingdom and the United States.

Over the decades the society

had helped several hundred

people to delve into their family

history, which was always rewarding,

she said.

There were plenty of surprises.

For example, it was common

that people would discover their

forbears had spent time in prison.

Fraud and bookmaking were

recurring crimes, but one person

discovered they were related

to Minnie Dean, who in 1895

became the only woman to be

executed in New Zealand for killing

children left in her care.

For those with only names to

go by, official birth, deaths and

marriage certificates were useful

in providing extra details, such as

where the person was born.

Archives New Zealand was an

“amazing” source of information,

and nowadays the internet was

also a useful tool.

Delving into the past could be

difficult as records may not exist.

She was unable to trace her family

earlier than the 1700s.

Records often related to land

and so upper-class people were

relatively easy to trace, whereas

ordinary people were not, she

said.

When records did exist, she

did not always trust them to be

accurate.

They could be tweaked to suit

the interests of the record keepers

or people who wanted to twist

facts to make them neat and tidy,

she said.

For example, an unexplained

name change could be an attempt

to hide an illegitimate birth.

“They were good at that. I don’t

think it’s quite so easy to do

today.”

The modern trend for DNA

testing could be helpful in

FAMILY TREE: New Year

Jillian Lord has used her

skills in genealogy to look

into her own family tree,

including the Grieve family

who she has traced to the

1700s.

PHOTO: STARMEDIA

finding relatives and unlocking

family trees others had already

complied.

For example, she would have

discovered an illegitimate branch

of her family if she did not already

know it existed, she said.

It could also show information

on what countries families originated

from.

“Most people use [DNA testing]

when they’re completely

stuck. It’s true, you can’t alter it.”

The classic method of recordsifting

would always be important,

she said.

Along with this hands-on approach,

Jill has also held all the

roles on the society’s executive at

various times, including serving

as president in 1983 and 2006.

Since 2009 she has filled the

role of society librarian, and for

the past 25 years, the society has

also held meetings at her and her

Minnie Dean

husband’s property.

She also runs courses on genealogy,

contributing to local and

regional University of the Third

Age Groups

Travelling overseas has also

been part of her role, as she has

enjoyed representing the society,

and New Zealand, at genealogy

conferences from Australia to the

United Kingdom.

In spite of her long-serving

contribution, news of her award

took her by surprise, she said.

“[My friends] They never said a

word so the email I got from the

honours committee at Government

House was the first thing I

knew.

“At first I thought: ‘Oh what’s

this junk mail’, and I nearly

pressed the button and got rid of

it.”

She was overwhelmed when

she realised what it was.

“It was absolutely amazing,

I’d love to have told people but I

didn’t dare because they told you

not to.”

In hindsight, the friends who

nominated her had been asking

strange questions, she

She now realised this was because

they were trying to gather

information to include in her

nomination.

Curiosity would drive her to

continue her work in genealogy,

as she said there were always

mysteries to solve.

Some tamariki get very ill from catching

COVID-19 and immunisation is one of

the best ways to protect them.

Immunisation is an important way we keep tamariki safe,

like being sun smart or wearing a seatbelt.

It protects your tamariki from many serious diseases

and stops disease spreading within your whānau and the

community. In Aotearoa, tamariki get free vaccinations

against 12 diseases, including whooping cough (pertussis),

measles and polio.

Safety of the COVID-19 vaccine

The child (paediatric) Pfizer vaccine has gone through

the same rigorous approval process as other routine

childhood immunisations. No clinical trials were skipped

and no corners were cut in the testing of its safety.

The Pfizer vaccine for 5 to 11-year-olds has been through

clinical trials with children in this age group. In general,

the side effects that were reported were mild, didn’t last

long, and were similar to side effects from other routine

immunisations.

Take time this summer to get the information and advice you need to make the best

decision for your tamariki. Find out more at:

BEAUTIFUL: Community pride garden awards judge Ron

Andrew and his wife Glyn.

A NEAT garden that stands

out from the rest is a winning

formula when it comes to

the community pride garden

awards.

The awards, which are being

held for the 32nd year in a row,

aim to celebrate and recognise

beautiful gardens.

Christchurch Beautifying

Association president Ron

Andrew is one of 20 judges

who will be making the rounds

through neighbourhoods from

Saturday in search of the best

looking gardens visible from the

street.

Andrew said one of the main

things the judges look for is

community pride.

He said a lot of people get

involved in gardening each year,

particularly the elderly and the

effort they put in is amazing.

Andrew also said the benefits

of gardening make the hard

work worthwhile.

“It’s healthy, it gets rid of

stress, it’s enjoyable and the end

results are rewarding . . . it’s

the most popular past time of

anything.”

Partnering with the city

council, community boards and

the Christchurch Beautifying

Association, the awards aim

to encourage civic pride and

recognise people who help

maintain Christchurch’s

reputation as the Garden City.

“Many people in our

communities put time and effort

into their gardens each week,

planting, mulching, weeding

and mowing,” said city council

head of community support,

John Filsell.

“We also have commercial

property owners who go the

extra mile with their public

gardens.

“It really makes a difference

to how our streets look and

how people feel about their

community so we want to

recognise that hard work

through these awards.”

Volunteer judges from the

association will be judging the

gardens from January 15 to

February 6.

Last year 682 awards were

given out for outstanding

gardens.

The gardens will be

judged on the amount of

effort put into creating and

maintaining it, overall tidiness

and the impact of the garden on

the street.

Gardeners that meet these

standards will receive a prize

card in their mailbox, with all

gardens visible from the street

being eligible, both residential

and commercial.

Six community boards

are involved in the awards:

Coastal-Burwood, Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood,

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton,

Linwood-Central-Heathcote,

Papanui-Innes and Spreydon-

Cashmere.

Any garden within these areas

and visible from the street is

eligible for an award.

RAY WHITE PAPANUI NEWS

Making a property decision

this year? Here is a ‘selling your

home’ checklist

Feature Properties

Selling a home can be a very

involved process. We grow

attached to our homes and

it can be hard to move on

from them, especially if we

have been in tenure for a long

time. We sell for any number

of reasons but no matter the

reason, the same things need

to be considered before you

start the process.

• Preparing your home:

You will need to get the

property looking as attractive

as possible to prospective

buyers. For some, this will mean

finally finishing that half started DIY

project, working on outstanding

repairs and maintenance, decluttering

and cleaning. Speak to a property

expert if you are considering any

expensive alterations to make sure

it’s worth the cost.

• Repair History:

If your property has had insurance or

EQC repairs then this documentation,

including evidence of completion of

works, needs to be compiled for the

sale. If you can’t find this information

then you can call EQC (0800 326 243)

and ask for them to send you the file

for your property. Note this can take

up to 20 working days to arrive so it

can be a good idea to order this well

ahead of time.

• Find a salesperson (agent):

Contact a few experienced local real

estate salespeople (agents) and set

up interviews. Potential salespeople

will evaluate your property and give

you a comparative market analysis.

Once you find your salesperson,

you will sign a contract stating any

commissions due, length of the

agreement, marketing costs and the

estimated sale cost.

• Making important decisions

around the sale:

Next, work with your salesperson to

decide how you want to sell (auction,

deadline sale, price etc.), the digital

and/or print marketing that you will

use to advertise the property, open

home times and what price guide the

agent will use when people enquire

about your property.

• Contracts:

Your salesperson will draw up

the contract of sale which should

include all details of the owners,

title, conditions of the sale, what is

included in the chattels (for example,

oven) as well as settlement date, legal

description and any tenancy details if

relevant.

• Going to market:

The length of time your home will

be on the market depends on how

you choose to sell. For an auction it’s

usually a four week campaign with an

unconditional sale under the hammer,

whereas a deadline sale can be a

two to three week campaign with a

further period of due diligence once it

is under offer.

• The final steps:

Your salesperson will be responsible

for negotiating with potential buyers

to get the best price for you. Once it

has been sold, the buyer usually pays

a deposit at this point. The last step

is settlement day. This is when you

give the keys over to the new owners

and vacate the property in exchange

for the full agreed upon amount.

Congratulations on your sale!

If you would like to discuss your

upcoming sale with any of the team

here at Ray White Papanui please

don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can

contact our office on 03 352 0567.

We look forward to hearing from you.
