CLINGING TO life, baby<br />

Sarah Ann Judson was almost<br />

tossed overboard while<br />

emigrating to New Zealand in<br />

the 1860s because she seemed<br />

unresponsive.<br />

The story is a favourite<br />

discovered by her great-granddaughter,<br />

Jill Lord, who has<br />

made the New Year Honours<br />

Addressing<br />

traffic<br />

issues on<br />

community<br />

board<br />

agenda<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

SOLVING TRAFFIC issues,<br />

promoting community safety<br />

and celebrating different cultures<br />

will be among the priorities<br />

for the Fendalton-Waimairi-<br />

Harewood Community Board<br />

this year.<br />

Board chairwoman<br />

Bridget<br />

Williams said<br />

the board aims<br />

to improve traffic<br />

flow with the<br />

installation of<br />

right-turning<br />

arrows in three<br />

locations.<br />

These are<br />

Maidstone Rd and Waimairi<br />

Bridget<br />

Williams<br />

Rd intersection, the Northwood<br />

Boulevard and Main North Rd<br />

intersection, and the Wairakei Rd<br />

and Grahams Rd intersection.<br />

“There’s a lot of those right<br />

turns and you’re getting cars in<br />

the middle of the road, waiting<br />

and waiting and waiting,” Williams<br />

said.<br />

“[You’re] not letting traffic go<br />

through if you don’t give that<br />

right turn.”<br />

The construction of a shared<br />

footpath along Gardiners Rd was<br />

also something the board would<br />

push for.<br />

Mami’s loving life in the pool<br />

LIFEGUARD AND swim<br />

instructor Mami Mori has loved<br />

the water all her life.<br />

Mori grew up in Japan where<br />

she attended swimming lessons<br />

with her brother from the age of<br />

nine.<br />

They then caught the bus to<br />

training three times a week and,<br />

by junior high school, Mori<br />

was a competitive freestyle and<br />

breaststroke swimmer.<br />

“My mother couldn’t swim so<br />

she wanted us to be able to,” she<br />

said.<br />

“I wasn’t as strong as my<br />

brother, he was a national rep –<br />

but I loved swimming.”<br />

Not only is Mori a Swimsmart<br />

tutor at Pioneer Recreation<br />

and Sport Centre, she’s also<br />

a lifeguard at Jellie Park and<br />

Waltham Pool.<br />

Mori started her job<br />

as a lifeguard last summer<br />

and just two weeks into the role<br />

she found herself jumping in to<br />

save a boy who was struggling<br />

and at risk of drowning at Jellie<br />

Park.<br />

“What I had been taught to<br />

look for was exactly what I saw<br />

happening in the pool, making<br />

the training very valuable,” she<br />

said.<br />

“I didn’t need to think about<br />

what to do, I reacted to the<br />

situation and jumped into the<br />

water immediately.<br />

“He was a bit shocked but he<br />

was okay. I was a bit shocked<br />

SPLASH: Mami Mori is a lifeguard at Jellie Park Recreation and Sport Centre.<br />

too, but it gave me confidence<br />

knowing I could make the right<br />

decisions and help those in<br />

trouble.”<br />

Mori said it’s not just children<br />

who can panic or get into trouble<br />

at the swimming pool.<br />

“If people haven’t learned<br />

to swim as children they<br />

can sometimes lack skills or<br />

confidence in the water,” she<br />

said. One of the reasons she<br />

enjoys teaching swim classes is<br />

to help people grow up feeling<br />

happy and confident in the water,<br />

especially as there’s so many<br />

beaches, rivers and lakes in New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Her students are primary-aged<br />

children and pre-schoolers, who<br />

are “very cute” and have a lot of<br />

energy, she said.<br />

“They’re so enthusiastic,<br />

though sometimes it’s hard to get<br />

them to listen.”<br />

When she’s working as a<br />

lifeguard, she keeps a watchful<br />

eye on everyone, especially<br />

children.<br />

She said with the warm<br />

weather bringing more people<br />

to the pool, lifeguards have to<br />

constantly monitor the area<br />

and look out for any potential<br />

hazards.<br />

“What I love best about my<br />

job is seeing the improvement of<br />

the students in the swimming<br />

classes and, as a lifeguard, I can<br />

PHOTOS: NEWSLINE<br />

help ensure people are safe and<br />

having fun,” she said.<br />

When asked if she had<br />

any advice for the public this<br />

summer she said: “I would say<br />

listen to the lifeguards at all<br />

times and respect other pool<br />

users and staff. And if you are a<br />

parent or caregiver, help us out<br />

by looking out for your children<br />

too, actively supervise undereights<br />

and keep under fives<br />

within an arm’s reach.”<br />

great hands with their professionalism and amazing organisational skills.<br />

Everything ran so smoothly and efficiently. Cameron certainly knows what<br />

was happening with the market at the time we had our house listed and<br />

this was a huge part of us selling our home with him and our successful sale.<br />

A huge thank you to Cameron and his amazing team Sam and Lisa, I would<br />

ROOM TO GROW: Neighbourhood Trust general manager Dan Hyzl says<br />

public input will help determine what the McFaddens Rd community<br />

garden will look like.<br />

PHOTO: STAR MEDIA<br />

Survey to determine<br />

what you want from<br />

neighbourhood garden<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

PREPARATIONS are<br />

under way for a community<br />

garden aiming to help<br />

people grow together,<br />

physically and mentally.<br />

A survey is now open<br />

for those in St Albans,<br />

Mairehau, Shirley, or the<br />

surrounding suburbs to<br />

give input on the McFaddens<br />

Rd garden.<br />

Neighbourhood Trust<br />

general manager Dan Hyzl<br />

said opinions on the <strong>13</strong>0m2<br />

garden will help shape the<br />

final outcome.<br />

“It’s a survey of what you<br />

would like in the gardens<br />

and maybe what you don’t<br />

need in the gardens. We’ll<br />

take everything into consideration,”<br />

Hyzl said.<br />

Non-profit organisation<br />

The Green Lab has partnered<br />

with the trust to help<br />

design the garden.<br />

In addition to vegetable<br />

• From page 1<br />

“It’s a long stretch of<br />

road, there’s a lot of residential<br />

housing and that<br />

sort of thing. There’s demand<br />

for providing a safe<br />

walkway, for both cyclists<br />

and walkers.”<br />

Controlling traffic speed<br />

around neighbourhoods<br />

and schools was another<br />

priority, she said.<br />

Last year the board<br />

kick-started Avonhead and<br />

Russley Community Safety<br />

Initiative in collaboration<br />

with the Christchurch<br />

North Community Patrol,<br />

police, Neighbourhood<br />

Support Canterbury and<br />

Ilam MP Sarah Pallett.<br />

It carried out a survey<br />

beds, options such as a play<br />

area, composting facilities<br />

and a polytunnel for yearround<br />

growing are also<br />

being considered.<br />

The survey also<br />

asks who is interested<br />

in contributing to or<br />

benefiting from the garden,<br />

and how often they would<br />

use the garden.<br />

Those who the trust<br />

particularly aimed to<br />

help with the garden were<br />

young families, people<br />

isolated within the community,<br />

and those with<br />

mental health needs, Hyzl<br />

said.<br />

The outdoor space would<br />

provide a place to “grow<br />

together” and promote<br />

healthy eating.<br />

“There’s a lot of people in<br />

the community who might<br />

not be eating as healthy as<br />

they should, eating processed<br />

food.”<br />

In the future, the trust<br />

to identify safety concerns<br />

of people who lived in the<br />

area, which Williams said<br />

would be followed up this<br />

year.<br />

“We’ll see how we could<br />

put together some kind of<br />

community meeting or<br />

workshop to help residents<br />

and neighbourhoods look<br />

after themselves.”<br />

The board was now looking<br />

at expanding the safety<br />

initiative to Bishopdale and<br />

Strowan, although no date<br />

had been set for this.<br />

Improving community<br />

facilitates such as the public<br />

toilets at Bishopdale Mall<br />

would be another focus.<br />

Board priorities this<br />

year were a balance of core<br />

also hoped to offer cooking<br />

courses incorporating the<br />

produce grown in the community<br />

garden.<br />

“Lots of the ingredients<br />

from the community<br />

garden could be used for<br />

these cooking courses for<br />

different ethnic groups that<br />

are in our community as<br />

well.”<br />

Work towards clearing<br />

the garden site was under<br />

way, and Hyzl said he<br />

hoped a grand opening<br />

would take place sometime<br />

in April.<br />

He estimated the project<br />

would have a final price tag<br />

of between $8000-$12,000,<br />

and was pleased with the<br />

support it had received so<br />

far, including help from<br />

volunteers.<br />

A link to the survey,<br />

which closes on <strong>January</strong><br />

20, can be found on the<br />

Neighbourhood Trust<br />

facebook page.<br />

Speed around schools a priority<br />

services and social and environmental<br />

components,<br />

she said.<br />

This included Culture<br />

Galore, set to be held with<br />

board support in Ilam’s Ray<br />

Blank Park on February 19.<br />

“Organisations of the<br />

community from all different<br />

ethnicities come<br />

together and it’s a big<br />

celebration of culture.”<br />

It was likely to be another<br />

year of uncertainty owing<br />

to the Covid-19 pandemic.<br />

“The board would<br />

love to thank everyone,<br />

especially community<br />

groups and active citizens,<br />

for getting involved in their<br />

community during these<br />

difficult times.”<br />

Receiving award ‘absolutely amazing’<br />

• From page 1<br />

The ships on which colonists<br />

sailed from England had “awful”<br />

conditions, she said.<br />

“One of my great-grandmothers<br />

only just made it. Her sister<br />

had died on the ship, and as they<br />

usually did, they’d wrapped her<br />

in a bit of sailcloth and chucked<br />

her over the side.”<br />

The captain then turned to<br />

her great-great-grandmother<br />

and asked whether one-year-old<br />

Sarah Ann was alive.<br />

“At which point my greatgrandmother<br />

apparently opened<br />

her eyes and looked out.”<br />

She survived to have nine children<br />

of her own.<br />

However, her shipboard brush<br />

with what was probably pneumonia<br />

meant that for the rest of her<br />

life had the use of only one lung.<br />

“She liked to joke with doctors<br />

who would say: ‘I have to tell you<br />

there’s something wrong with<br />

your lungs’, and she’d say: ‘Is<br />

there really?’ ”<br />

A trip to the cemetery as a<br />

teenager made a striking impression<br />

on Jill, which she credits<br />

with sparking her interest in<br />

genealogy.<br />

“I said to my father: ‘Who are<br />

all these people, they’ve got the<br />

same name as me’.”<br />

More questions followed:<br />

Where were they from? What<br />

had they done?<br />

Older relatives were a good<br />

source of information, revealing<br />

information that was unrecorded,<br />

she said.<br />

“Once you start quizzing them,<br />

funny little stories will come<br />

out.”<br />

The “mad habit” of genealogy<br />

was part of a wider interest in<br />

history.<br />

Most of her genealogy work<br />

involved helping others, she said.<br />

Society committee meetings<br />

always brought with them new<br />

emails and letters from people<br />

researching their families.<br />

The majority of them were<br />

from New Zealand, but they also<br />

came from Australia, the United<br />

Kingdom and the United States.<br />

Over the decades the society<br />

had helped several hundred<br />

people to delve into their family<br />

history, which was always rewarding,<br />

she said.<br />

There were plenty of surprises.<br />

For example, it was common<br />

that people would discover their<br />

forbears had spent time in prison.<br />

Fraud and bookmaking were<br />

recurring crimes, but one person<br />

discovered they were related<br />

to Minnie Dean, who in 1895<br />

became the only woman to be<br />

executed in New Zealand for killing<br />

children left in her care.<br />

For those with only names to<br />

go by, official birth, deaths and<br />

marriage certificates were useful<br />

in providing extra details, such as<br />

where the person was born.<br />

Archives New Zealand was an<br />

“amazing” source of information,<br />

and nowadays the internet was<br />

also a useful tool.<br />

Delving into the past could be<br />

difficult as records may not exist.<br />

She was unable to trace her family<br />

earlier than the 1700s.<br />

Records often related to land<br />

and so upper-class people were<br />

relatively easy to trace, whereas<br />

ordinary people were not, she<br />

said.<br />

When records did exist, she<br />

did not always trust them to be<br />

accurate.<br />

They could be tweaked to suit<br />

the interests of the record keepers<br />

or people who wanted to twist<br />

facts to make them neat and tidy,<br />

she said.<br />

For example, an unexplained<br />

name change could be an attempt<br />

to hide an illegitimate birth.<br />

“They were good at that. I don’t<br />

think it’s quite so easy to do<br />

today.”<br />

The modern trend for DNA<br />

testing could be helpful in<br />

FAMILY TREE: New Year<br />

Honours List Queen’s<br />

Service Medal recipient<br />

Jillian Lord has used her<br />

skills in genealogy to look<br />

into her own family tree,<br />

including the Grieve family<br />

who she has traced to the<br />

1700s.<br />

PHOTO: STARMEDIA<br />

finding relatives and unlocking<br />

family trees others had already<br />

complied.<br />

For example, she would have<br />

discovered an illegitimate branch<br />

of her family if she did not already<br />

know it existed, she said.<br />

It could also show information<br />

on what countries families originated<br />

from.<br />

“Most people use [DNA testing]<br />

when they’re completely<br />

stuck. It’s true, you can’t alter it.”<br />

The classic method of recordsifting<br />

would always be important,<br />

she said.<br />

Along with this hands-on approach,<br />

Jill has also held all the<br />

roles on the society’s executive at<br />

various times, including serving<br />

as president in 1983 and 2006.<br />

Since 2009 she has filled the<br />

role of society librarian, and for<br />

the past 25 years, the society has<br />

also held meetings at her and her<br />

Minnie Dean<br />

husband’s property.<br />

She also runs courses on genealogy,<br />

contributing to local and<br />

regional University of the Third<br />

Age Groups<br />

Travelling overseas has also<br />

been part of her role, as she has<br />

enjoyed representing the society,<br />

and New Zealand, at genealogy<br />

conferences from Australia to the<br />

United Kingdom.<br />

In spite of her long-serving<br />

contribution, news of her award<br />

took her by surprise, she said.<br />

“[My friends] They never said a<br />

word so the email I got from the<br />

honours committee at Government<br />

House was the first thing I<br />

knew.<br />

“At first I thought: ‘Oh what’s<br />

this junk mail’, and I nearly<br />

pressed the button and got rid of<br />

it.”<br />

She was overwhelmed when<br />

she realised what it was.<br />

“It was absolutely amazing,<br />

I’d love to have told people but I<br />

didn’t dare because they told you<br />

not to.”<br />

In hindsight, the friends who<br />

nominated her had been asking<br />

strange questions, she<br />

She now realised this was because<br />

they were trying to gather<br />

information to include in her<br />

nomination.<br />

Curiosity would drive her to<br />

continue her work in genealogy,<br />

as she said there were always<br />

mysteries to solve.<br />

In <strong>2022</strong>, parents and caregivers will<br />

be able to get their 5 to 11-year-olds<br />

immunised against COVID-19<br />

Some tamariki get very ill from catching<br />

COVID-19 and immunisation is one of<br />

the best ways to protect them.<br />

Immunisation is an important way we keep tamariki safe,<br />

like being sun smart or wearing a seatbelt.<br />

It protects your tamariki from many serious diseases<br />

and stops disease spreading within your whānau and the<br />

community. In Aotearoa, tamariki get free vaccinations<br />

against 12 diseases, including whooping cough (pertussis),<br />

measles and polio.<br />

Safety of the COVID-19 vaccine<br />

The child (paediatric) Pfizer vaccine has gone through<br />

the same rigorous approval process as other routine<br />

childhood immunisations. No clinical trials were skipped<br />

and no corners were cut in the testing of its safety.<br />

The Pfizer vaccine for 5 to 11-year-olds has been through<br />

clinical trials with children in this age group. In general,<br />

the side effects that were reported were mild, didn’t last<br />

long, and were similar to side effects from other routine<br />

immunisations.<br />

Take time this summer to get the information and advice you need to make the best<br />

decision for your tamariki. Find out more at:<br />

BEAUTIFUL: Community pride garden awards judge Ron<br />

Andrew and his wife Glyn.<br />

A NEAT garden that stands<br />

out from the rest is a winning<br />

formula when it comes to<br />

the community pride garden<br />

awards.<br />

The awards, which are being<br />

held for the 32nd year in a row,<br />

aim to celebrate and recognise<br />

beautiful gardens.<br />

Christchurch Beautifying<br />

Association president Ron<br />

Andrew is one of 20 judges<br />

who will be making the rounds<br />

through neighbourhoods from<br />

Saturday in search of the best<br />

looking gardens visible from the<br />

street.<br />

Andrew said one of the main<br />

things the judges look for is<br />

community pride.<br />

He said a lot of people get<br />

involved in gardening each year,<br />

particularly the elderly and the<br />

effort they put in is amazing.<br />

Andrew also said the benefits<br />

of gardening make the hard<br />

work worthwhile.<br />

“It’s healthy, it gets rid of<br />

stress, it’s enjoyable and the end<br />

results are rewarding . . . it’s<br />

the most popular past time of<br />

anything.”<br />

Partnering with the city<br />

council, community boards and<br />

the Christchurch Beautifying<br />

Association, the awards aim<br />

to encourage civic pride and<br />

recognise people who help<br />

maintain Christchurch’s<br />

reputation as the Garden City.<br />

“Many people in our<br />

communities put time and effort<br />

into their gardens each week,<br />

planting, mulching, weeding<br />

and mowing,” said city council<br />

head of community support,<br />

John Filsell.<br />

“We also have commercial<br />

property owners who go the<br />

extra mile with their public<br />

gardens.<br />

“It really makes a difference<br />

to how our streets look and<br />

how people feel about their<br />

community so we want to<br />

recognise that hard work<br />

through these awards.”<br />

Volunteer judges from the<br />

association will be judging the<br />

gardens from <strong>January</strong> 15 to<br />

February 6.<br />

Last year 682 awards were<br />

given out for outstanding<br />

gardens.<br />

The gardens will be<br />

judged on the amount of<br />

effort put into creating and<br />

maintaining it, overall tidiness<br />

and the impact of the garden on<br />

the street.<br />

Gardeners that meet these<br />

standards will receive a prize<br />

card in their mailbox, with all<br />

gardens visible from the street<br />

being eligible, both residential<br />

and commercial.<br />

Six community boards<br />

are involved in the awards:<br />

Coastal-Burwood, Fendalton-<br />

Waimairi-Harewood,<br />

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton,<br />

Linwood-Central-Heathcote,<br />

Papanui-Innes and Spreydon-<br />

Cashmere.<br />

Any garden within these areas<br />

and visible from the street is<br />

eligible for an award.<br />

is very dangerous. Call us about disconnecting the power,<br />

it might cost a bit more, but it could well save your life.<br />

RAY WHITE PAPANUI NEWS<br />

Making a property decision<br />

this year? Here is a ‘selling your<br />

home’ checklist<br />

Feature Properties<br />

Selling a home can be a very<br />

involved process. We grow<br />

attached to our homes and<br />

it can be hard to move on<br />

from them, especially if we<br />

have been in tenure for a long<br />

time. We sell for any number<br />

of reasons but no matter the<br />

reason, the same things need<br />

to be considered before you<br />

start the process.<br />

• Preparing your home:<br />

You will need to get the<br />

property looking as attractive<br />

as possible to prospective<br />

buyers. For some, this will mean<br />

finally finishing that half started DIY<br />

project, working on outstanding<br />

repairs and maintenance, decluttering<br />

and cleaning. Speak to a property<br />

expert if you are considering any<br />

expensive alterations to make sure<br />

it’s worth the cost.<br />

• Repair History:<br />

If your property has had insurance or<br />

EQC repairs then this documentation,<br />

including evidence of completion of<br />

works, needs to be compiled for the<br />

sale. If you can’t find this information<br />

then you can call EQC (0800 326 243)<br />

and ask for them to send you the file<br />

for your property. Note this can take<br />

up to 20 working days to arrive so it<br />

can be a good idea to order this well<br />

ahead of time.<br />

• Find a salesperson (agent):<br />

Contact a few experienced local real<br />

estate salespeople (agents) and set<br />

up interviews. Potential salespeople<br />

will evaluate your property and give<br />

you a comparative market analysis.<br />

Once you find your salesperson,<br />

you will sign a contract stating any<br />

commissions due, length of the<br />

agreement, marketing costs and the<br />

estimated sale cost.<br />

• Making important decisions<br />

around the sale:<br />

Next, work with your salesperson to<br />

decide how you want to sell (auction,<br />

deadline sale, price etc.), the digital<br />

and/or print marketing that you will<br />

use to advertise the property, open<br />

home times and what price guide the<br />

agent will use when people enquire<br />

about your property.<br />

• Contracts:<br />

Your salesperson will draw up<br />

the contract of sale which should<br />

include all details of the owners,<br />

title, conditions of the sale, what is<br />

included in the chattels (for example,<br />

oven) as well as settlement date, legal<br />

description and any tenancy details if<br />

relevant.<br />

• Going to market:<br />

The length of time your home will<br />

be on the market depends on how<br />

you choose to sell. For an auction it’s<br />

usually a four week campaign with an<br />

unconditional sale under the hammer,<br />

whereas a deadline sale can be a<br />

two to three week campaign with a<br />

further period of due diligence once it<br />

is under offer.<br />

• The final steps:<br />

Your salesperson will be responsible<br />

for negotiating with potential buyers<br />

to get the best price for you. Once it<br />

has been sold, the buyer usually pays<br />

a deposit at this point. The last step<br />

is settlement day. This is when you<br />

give the keys over to the new owners<br />

and vacate the property in exchange<br />

for the full agreed upon amount.<br />

Congratulations on your sale!<br />

If you would like to discuss your<br />

upcoming sale with any of the team<br />

here at Ray White Papanui please<br />

don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can<br />

contact our office on 03 352 0567.<br />
