Swimmers set up

with skills for life

LINWOOD AVENUE School

has been awarded a grant of

$8000 for swimming

lessons.

The grant has been given by

the New Zealand Community

Trust.

Principal Gretchen Smith

said: “The drowning statistics

for Aotearoa this summer have

been dreadful.

“Learning to swim is crucial

for water safety and swimming

is a vital skill for all students to

develop.”

Christchurch Arena

Pavilion for

quarry will

recognise

Korean War

veterans

A TRADITIONAL Korean-roofed

pavilion to be installed in the

Songpa-gu Garden at Halswell

Quarry Park will commemorate

Canterbury veterans of the Korean

War.

The pavilion (jeongja) is being

shipped from Busan in Korea and

on arrival at Lyttelton Port will be

assembled at the quarry park and

placed on the western side of the

garden.

The installation is planned to be

completed by June.

It will join existing monuments

including a memorial bridge

commemorating the Korean War

and traditional Korean totem

poles – a symbol of friendship

between Christchurch and its

sister city Songpa-gu.

The Canterbury Korean War

Veterans’ Pavilion will have

plaques naming each veteran

located under the overhang of the

roof.

More than 6000 New

Zealanders served in Korea

between 1950-57. Forty five

men lost their lives during this

engagement.

“The jeongja honours the

Korean War Veterans in

Canterbury and their sacrifices

made during the Korean

War,” says Korean Society of

Christchurch president and

member of the Christchurch-

Songpa-gu Sister City Committee,

Mary Yoon.

EILEEN KERR received a

fake vaccination booster form

question its authenticity, in spite

of how official it looked.

Connecting

kids with

cricket a

way of life

for mother

and family

• By Emily Moorhouse

CRICKET HAS been a large part of

Libby Hickford’s life, yet after 46 years

of playing and coaching it’s the sense of

community that keeps her involved with

the sport.

Since becoming a budding young

cricketer a the age of five Hickford has

coached teams, mentored coaches, sat

on cricket committees and even met her

husband through the game.

Now the 51-year-old runs the Sydenham

Junior Cricket Club, overseeing

training, club management and being

responsible for more than 300 members.

Hickford’s interest in cricket stemmed

from her father who played and while

she had to play in a boys team at school

due to the sport being very male dominated

she quickly became hooked.

“I just really enjoyed the game and

I got to play it quite a bit at lunch time

with the boys,” she said.

“My passion for cricket grew from

there.”

Hickford was eventua ly able to play in

a girls team during high school and later

dabbled in indoor cricket, where she met

her “very cricket passionate” husband

A lan when she was 21.

School packs

take pressure

off struggling

families

• By Emily Moorhouse

A SURPRISE from an old school friend

and a nationwide company has seen the

Hoon Hay Food Bank create a new ‘back to

school pack’ for children in need.

Food bank founder

Corrin Webster

was surprised when

employees of Air New

Zealand arrived a the

food bank with a bunch

of school supplies to

donate.

“They just turned

up out of nowhere, we

didn’t know they were

coming,” he said. “It

was rea ly awesome.”

One of the employees explained that Air

New Zealand did a similar thing last year

by donating to a charity of their choice, and

this year the Hoon Hay Food Bank was on

their radar after finding them on Facebook.

“It’s amazing to know that such a

nationwide company as big as Air New

Zealand has noticed somebody as small as

us,” Webster said. “It’s a really good feeling

and it’s good to get that recognition from

somebody so important.”

Among the supplies Air New Zealand

donated were lunch boxes with drink

bottles and sma l containers for food

storage.

A couple weeks before Air New Zealand

donated the school supplies, an old school

friend of Webster’s had visited to drop off a

bunch of school shoes.

This also took Webster by surprise,

as he hadn’t seen his friend Becca since

intermediate and without Facebook she

wasn’t fo lowing the food bank online.

Committee upset by missing plaques

that signify friendship between cities

GONE: David Bolam-Smith at the site of a removed plaque. The Canterbury Japanese

Society and Christchurch Kurashiki Sister City committee members saw the plaques were

missing during a monthly working bee in the Kurashiki Garden.

• By Emily Moorhouse

TWO MISSING plaques at

Halswell Quarry have left

keepers of the garden frustrated

and confused.

The Canterbury Japanese

Society and Christchurch

Kurashiki Sister City committee

members noticed two plaques

had been taken from the

Kurashiki Garden when they

were completing their monthly

working bee.

The first plaque, which was

secured to a rock, represents the

40th anniversary of the relationship

between the city and Japan,

as the city’s mayor at the time

was signed in the same time as

the Kurashiki mayor.

The second plaque was donated

to the gardens and installed

onto a shade house used for

people working in the gardens to

rest in.

Christchurch Kurashiki Sister

City committee member David

Bolam-Smith said it was devastating

to see the plaques were

missing, as they represented the

friendship between the committee

and Japan.

“It must have been quite an

effort, it was secured to a rock,”

Bolam-Smith said. “I have no

idea how they did it.”

He said it was frustrating, as

committee members spend a lot

of volunteer hours making the

gardens look nice.

Bolam-Smith, who looks after

the garden along with a ranger,

said the 40th anniversary plaque

cost just under $2000 to make

and install.

He said he has contacted the

city council about reporting the

missing plaques to police and

hopes someone will return them.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

A REGULAR DAY AT

McMaster & Heap VETS

Every day is an adventure as a veterinarian. But it is also hard work, and that’s without

throwing COVID and an increasing pet population into the mix. There are always surprises

and events we can’t predict, like the Labrador that swallowed a sock or a patient struggling

to breathe with heart failure. As professionally trained vets and nurse we have to be ready

to cope with any situation that presents itself any time of the day, respond quickly and have

the right team around us to save a life.

Below are a collection of photos telling a short story of what we see and treat in a single

day at McMaster & Heap. We all support and help each other manage cases, workload and

those emergency walkins. It takes a very special kind of person to do what we do day in day

out, 7 days a week. Steve and I are immensely proud of the team that have chosen to be

part of the McMaster & Heap Family, and I feel proud every single day of the work done by

our entire team.

Steve performing Cataract surgery.

Blue was referred to McMaster & Heap for an MRI because

he’d started seizuring and was not well controlled on epileptic

medication. Suffice to say we couldn’t identify a cause causing

the seizures so can safely say he probably has idiopathic

epilepsy, which will require lifelong daily drug treatment.

Swimming lessons

teach life-long skills

• From page 1

Smith said Christchurch was

surrounded by beautiful beaches and

rivers – and it was essential young

children were taught basic skills to ensure

their safety in outdoor or indoor water

environments.

“By teaching children how to swim at

primary school, we hope that this will help

develop a life-long love of water sports,

and the necessary knowledge they will

need for water safety.”

She said each year the school committed

to providing swimming lessons for its

students, as formal lessons were beyond

the reach of many of families within the

school community.

“Swimming lessons help tamariki to

develop important swimming and water

safety skills in a controlled and safe

aquatic environment.”

The skills and knowledge gained could

then be used outside of school hours.

“We sought funding from NZCT for

swimming lessons for the entire school,

from year 1 through to year 6, with a

specific focus on our middle school

students in years 3 and 4,” Smith said.

“The quote for the middle school was

larger than for the junior and senior

schools because it includes a swim week

in every term. Year 3 and 4 children are

the group who typically make the most

progress.”

She said swimming lessons should be

provided by those with the appropriate

qualifications. Although teachers received

tuition in the teaching of swimming, the

progress that children make in a proper

facility with a trained coach did not compare

with “what we as a school are able to

offer”.

“As a decile 2 school, it is difficult for

our whānau to contribute to or pay for

professional swimming lessons. Funding

from NZCT makes a huge difference

by taking the pressure off the already

strained budgets of our students’ families

and whānau.”

The makeshift bar bringing

joy to a neighbourhood

• By Emily Moorhouse

WHAT STARTED out as a

joke has become a safe space

for residents to talk about

their feelings and meet their

neighbours.

Cody Adlam, 21 along with his

flatmate Cassius Kulsen, 19, and

their neighbour Adrian Page, 40,

are known by the community as

the ‘Sydenham Street Wavers’.

The three men set up a bar

stand made from wooden pallets

each weekend on Huxley St and

invite their neighbours to stop by

for a hot drink and biscuit and

talk about their feelings.

“We’re pretty shocked at how

big it is,” Adlam said.

“It started out as a joke.”

The trio quickly gained popularity

among residents in the

area and get a lot of waves from

passers-by.

Adlam said the idea started

when the group was fundraising

for breast cancer in January.

They set up a couch on the

street with a sign that said every

beep equals a dollar donation

from one of the three men.

“Every now and then we would

put a couch and rug on the street

and decided to have a bar one

weekend,” Adlam said.

The group set up a sign that

reads “this is a safe place for all

people to talk about their feelings

haere mai”.

After seeing the positive reactions

from people, the group decided

to make it a regular thing.

“People driving past stop and

ask us what we’re doing,” Adlam

said.

“Some people say: ‘Oh I

needed to hear this today’.”

Adlam said they often have

people stop by for a chat and

open up about things they’re

struggling with.

“It feels good,” Adlam said.

CONNECTION: Resident

Cinta Terry stops by for a

chat with the ‘Sydenham

Street Wavers.’

“Growing up talking to people

was kind of hard to access so

it’s nice to be able to have a chat

with people.”

The group even had someone

who was drink driving pull over

for a chat and let them drive her

home and another person who

opened up about struggles with

domestic violence at home.

Adlam said even when the

group aren’t out on the street

they can hear people beeping

their horns when they drive past.

“It’s nice that it brings people

joy,” he said.

“It brings us joy as well.”

Dogs in Early New Zealand Photographs

Introduction by Mike White

Adorable and sometimes surprising historic images of dogs and their owners

This entertaining selection of over 100 photos of New Zealand dogs reveals some of the

more curious ways in which they have appeared in photographic collections from the

nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Dogs named Terror, Betsey Jane, Floss and Erebus appear alongside canines whose

names are longer known. The photos range from carefully staged studio portraits to New

Zealand landscapes.

The photographs take the reader across the towns and landscapes of Aotearoa New

Zealand, and the text profiles many of the photographers and studios that flourished prior

to the First World War. A charming mix of history and whimsy, this beautiful book makes

the perfect gift for any dog lover.

tracked the money as it flowed out of Russia through the Baltics and Cyprus and on to

Western Europe and the Americas, they were shocked to discovered that Vladimir Putin

himself was a beneficiary of the crime.

As law enforcement agencies began freezing the money, Putin retaliated. At once a

financial caper, an international adventure and a passionate plea for justice, Freezing

Order is a timely and stirring morality tale about how one man can take on one of the

most ruthless villains in the world.

Cracking Open the Nest Egg

How to make your retirement savings last the distance

by Martin Hawes

Planning for retirement can be a scary thought, whether it is just around the corner or

years in the future. Martin Hawes, one of New Zealand’s best-known experts on personal

finance, answers all of the questions that may be keeping you up at night: How much will

I need to retire? Can I ever afford to stop working? How do I make sure my money lasts

as long as I do? Working out how you can achieve a regular monthly retirement income

is more difficult than it used to be. Historically low interest rates (despite the current blip)

plus longer life expectancy means the old method of parking your nest egg in a savings

account and living off the interest is no longer an option. Hawes guides you step-by-step

through the planning process, showing you how you can safely create a regular income

for the rest of your life.

Ideals Are Like Stars

the dame yvette Williams story By angela Walker

The first New Zealand woman to win an Olympic gold medal, a feat not repeated for forty

years. Ideals Are Like Stars is the remarkable true story of Yvette Williams, a trailblazing

young athlete who defied the odds to win gold in the long jump at the Helsinki Olympics

in 1952. Ignoring the pressure to abandon her dreams and become a housewife, Yvette’s

sports career is a highlight reel of newly set records which propelled her into the spotlight.

Well-known for her rigorous training, down-to-earth nature and sense of humour, Yvette

was the epitome of the Kiwi sporting hero - humble, hardworking and dedicated - who

won the hearts of the nation. This is a long overdue celebration of an extraordinary

sporting life and a highly engaging chronicle of a young woman’s quest for excellence.

Traffic signals expected to make cycleway safer

TWO NEW signalised crossings on

Humphrey’s Drive will provide safe

crossing points for people using the

Rapanui-Shag Rock cycleway.

Construction work began last

week and is expected to take

between five and seven months to

complete. Accompanying works

will also take place to widen ‘pinch

points’ on Humphrey’s Drive and

upgrade Tidal View.

The crossing points will connect

the Charlesworth Reserve section

of the cycleway to the Ferrymead

Bridge-Redcliffs section of the

coastal pathway.

One will be placed near Windsurfer

Reserve and one near the

intersection of Humphrey’s Drive

and Tidal View.

provide cyclists with a safe connection

Vehicle speeds will be reduced to

30km/h along Tidal View.

The cycleway connects Sumner

via the pathway to the central city,

Shakespeare’s Globe beckons for actor

• By Shardey Harris

A TALENTED young actor has

been offered a once-in-a-lifetime

opportunity to represent New

Zealand on the world stage.

Hornby High School head

student Nadia Officer has become

a member of the Shakespeare

Globe Centre New Zealand

Young Shakespeare Company for

2022, and will be one of 24 young

actors from around the country

heading to the Globe Theatre in

London later this year.

Nadia was ‘shocked but

very ecstatic’ to be joining

the company after dedicating

six years to drama classes,

rehearsals, musicals and

Shakespeare festivals.

“It is my dream to get to the

Globe and I hope to express and

share the incredible themes,

lessons and language that

Shakespeare gifted us all those

years ago, which couldn’t be

more relevant in today’s world,”

Nadia said.

After gaining success at the

regional and national Sheila

Winn Shakespeare Festivals,

Nadia was awarded the most

promising actor.

She then went on to become

part of the National Shakespeare

Schools Production, where

only 50 students were selected

nationwide. From there, the

24 actors were chosen for the

SGCNZ Young Shakespeare

Company.

PHOTO:

MEMORY

OF LIGHT

PHOTOGRAPHY

Principal Robin Sutton was

filled with pride recalling the first

time he watched Nadia perform.

“I remember seeing Nadia as a

Year 8 student on the stage, and

even as a 12-year-old she had

the most natural stage presence

I’ve ever seen in a student in my

whole teaching career. And she’s

just got better and better.”

Not only has this opportunity

changed Nadia’s life, but it has

helped inspire other students at

the school to pursue theatre.

Drama Teacher Joanne Clark

said: “Every student deserves

to have that opportunity and

to know you can go to those

productions, go to nationals, and

go to London. That opportunity

is there.”

Shakespeare wrote in his play

The Merry Wives of Windsor:

‘The world’s mine oyster’, and

this is undoubtedly true for

Nadia.

But with big dreams, and big

opportunities come big costs.

Nadia is rallying to raise $10,000

to help cover the cost of travel,

accommodation, workshop fees,

and meals across the two-week

experience.

If you would like to support

Nadia, a Givealittle page has been

set up and is open to donations.

A fundraiser event is also

being held next Wednesday,

May 25 at the Hornby High

School Auditorium. Nadia

invites the community to come

along and enjoy an evening of

Sticky date

anything always

seems to be a

winner and this

simple, luscious

cake by Joan

quite densely moist. The

dates enrich the cake’s deep,

delectable texture and the

grape juice provides the tang.

Delicious sticky date

cake a yummy treat

RD Petroleum (RDP) is a familiar sight

for farm and rural residents around the

Canterbury region, however now days urban

residents also enjoy the same excellent

customer service for which RDP is known for

in rural communities, through their home

heating diesel.

RDP began its home heating diesel delivery

service to the lower South Island’s main urban

centres of Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin

and Invercargill a number of years ago.

Customer demand has continued to increase

year upon year, and RDP has responded

with specialised improvements to its delivery

equipment.

The trucks that deliver RDP’s home heating

diesel in each urban centre are drawn from

the company’s extensive vehicle fleet. This

means they have the latest communication

and GPS tracking technology on board, so

the operations team always know where they

are and how far away they are from their next

delivery stop.

RDP’s home heating diesel trucks come

equipped with a specially-designed hose,

through which the diesel is pumped from

the truck into house tanks. The length of

the hose allows the trucks to access tanks

without having to enter the property, avoiding

damaging the driveway. RDP is the place to

go if you require diesel conveniently delivered

to your home and as a loyal RDP customer

you’re offered discounted pricing and can

become eligible for value-added benefits.

For all enquiries please phone

0800 44 00 14, or visit the RDP website at

AS A child, I remember very vividly the

warm, comforting and homely smell of

baking wafting through the house. As

a result of all this activity, the cake tins

were always full, in spite of the fact that a

number of ingredients were in short supply.

Afternoon tea was always quite an

occasion. Sometimes we accompanied our

mother to what was essentially a ladies

afternoon tea.

We, the children, had our eyes glued to

the tea trolly. What would we choose?

I’ve recently talked to a number of

friends about this and they too remember

the rule. We were allowed to choose two

pieces from the tea trolly and only two.

This was the time when children were

encouraged to be seen and not heard, so of

course, there was no discussion on whether

we liked what we had chosen.

Sticky date and grape juice cake

Makes 16 slices

Ingredients

270g pitted dates, halved

250ml dark grape juice

50g butter, roughly chopped

2 Tbsp treacle

120g dark cane or brown sugar

¾ tsp baking soda

2 large eggs, size 7, lightly beaten

190g plain flour

2 tsp ground allspice

Directions

Preheat the oven to 170degC.

Lightly oil the sides of a 20cm ring tin

and line the base with non-stick baking

paper.

Combine the chopped dates and the

grape juice in a microwave proof bowl.

Cover and microwave on full power for 3

minutes.

Stir in the butter, treacle, dark cane sugar

and baking soda. The baking soda will

cause the mixture to froth up.

Set the bowl aside to cool.

Pour the lightly beaten eggs into the date

mixture and stir to combine. In a mediumsized

bowl sift together the flour and the

allspice. Make a well in the centre and pour

in the liquid ingredients. Stir gently until

well combined.

Pour into the prepared cake tin, smooth

the top and bake in the preheated oven for

35-40 minutes, or until the top feels firm

to the touch and a skewer inserted into

the centre of the cake comes out clean. To

loosen, run a knife between the edge of the

cake and the tin.

Invert on to a plate. Peel off the baking

paper then turn right side up on to a

serving plate. Decorate with edible flowers

if you wish.

Serve just as it is or with whipped cream

or yoghurt. Cuts into 16 slices.

The cake will keep in a cool place in an

airtight tin for about a week.

HOME & HEATING

Get the balance

right this winter

Enviro Master has been helping

Cantabrians get the balance right when it

comes to choosing the perfect heat pump or

air conditioning system for their home or

office since 2002.

Their team of expert sales people, qualified

electricians, heating and refrigeration

engineers, help to supply and install

Christchurch’s widest range of heat pumps,

and because they have no affiliation with any

one brand, you can be assured their advice

on the benefits and differences between each

product is unbiased.

They will recommend the most energyefficient

and cost-effective system for your

individual situation, and will have you

regulating the heat in your home or office in

no time.

Nowadays, customers are often wanting

whole home solutions to be able to maintain

even temperatures throughout the home

both in Winter and Summer. This can be

achieved by using ducted systems or multi

systems and Enviro Master are experts in

designing, installing and commissioning

these systems.

Help is currently available with a

government subsidy covering 80 per cent of

the cost of a new heat pump up to $3000.

The subsidy is part of the Warmer Kiwi

Homes initiative and is available to Home

owner/occupiers with a Community

Services Card, a SuperGold combo card or

who live in a low-income area as determined

by deciles 8-10 on the New Zealand

Deprivation Index.

The applicant’s home must also have been

built before 2008, have insulation up to code

(insulation subsidies also available) and have

no fixed heating in a living area, such as an

existing operational heat pump or fireplace.

With new regulations now in place for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

it’s time to ensure you are meeting the new

standards.

Inadequate heating and ventilation can

lead to mould growth and dampness in your

property, leading to costlier maintenance

and an unhealthy living environment.

Providing a fixed heater with a higher heat

output and lower running costs, like a heat

pump, will enable your tenants to heat the

area effectively. Enviro Master are well

experienced with the Tenancy Services

software to ensure that you are meeting your

requirements.

To ensure you choose the right system

for your home or business, one of Enviro

Master’s experts will visit to assess your

individual situation, offer advice and

answer any questions you may have. This

consultation is at no cost to the customer

and is always provided before a heat pump is

installed.

Anyone wondering about their eligibility

for a subsidised heat pump are welcome to

get in touch for details and help with the

application process. To find out more, call

Enviro Master on (03) 366 0525 or visit

their website www.enviromaster.co.nz
