Rangi Ruru’s new multi-purpose

centre opens

RANGI RURU Girls’ School’s

new sport and multi-purpose

centre, Atawhai, is scheduled to

officially open today.

The $10 million project

includes a state-of-the-art

sports court which can

be transformed into an

events space, a fitness centre

and learning spaces.

It took 18-months to

complete and has been

brought to life thanks to

donations from the school

community.

Said principal Dr Sandra

Hastie: “The new build replaces

a gym built in 1976 when the

school roll was around 480

students. With student numbers

now at a maximum of 700, the

new gym will not only be a

transformational space for students

to learn and play sport but

will allow the school and wider

community to come together for

assemblies, conferences, events

and performances.”

Sandra

Hastie

As well as the sports court

with mezzanine seating that can

transform into an event space,

Atawhai also houses the

PE, health and sport

department staff offices,

learning spaces, a fitness

centre, changing rooms

and gallery foyer space.

The curved design, by

Melbourne-based McIldowie

Partners, speaks

to the school’s name

which means “wide sky

shelter”.

The design represents the night

sky and features a statement

façade that mimics solar

constellations and is lit in blue at

night.

About 50 per cent of the build

was contributed from fundraised

capital. The fundraising effort was

assisted by a generous bequest

from an alumna, the late Elizabeth

Reid, after whom the gymnasium

in the building is named.

Boutique Christchurch retirement village

recognised for excellence in aged care

The upscale and boutique Ashley Suites care facility

within The Russley Village in Christchurch has carried

off the prestigious Jackson Van Interiors Built and

Grown Environment Award as part of the NZACA/

EBOS Excellence in Care Awards.

The award recognised how considered design,

quality and a refreshed approach to residential aged

care is delivering positive clinical outcomes for its

residents.

This was announced in Christchurch last night at the

New Zealand Aged Care Association (NZACA) and

Retirement Villages Association (RVA) joint Summit.

The Ashley Suites is an elegant care residence

comprising 44 care suites, offering rest home and

hospital level care. Its completion in late 2019 enabled

The Russley Village to fulfil its promise to residents of

providing quality residential care within the village.

The Russley Village is operated by the Generus

Living Group. For Group Director Graham Wilkinson,

announcement that Ashley Suites won the award was

further confirmation that its positioning in the luxury

end of retirement living not only resonated with the

market but, more importantly, was investing in the

wellbeing of residents.

“With Ashley Suites we sought to provide a care

offering and environment that was exceptional in the

market. We focused on creating a beautiful residence

from which tailored and meaningful care could be

given. We are delighted that this approach has been

recognised by the industry and is reflected in the care

outcomes of our residents. The Ashley Suites offers a

personalised care approach uniquely overlaid with a

quality hospitality offering.”

Wilkinson said Generus set out to craft villages

that reflected their unique location and which enabled

residents to retain their individuality. “I believe with

Ashley Care Suites, and, indeed, The Russley Village, we

have achieved that.”

The stunning architecture of the care facility has

been seamlessly integrated with the urban fabric of the

broader village. The care facility residents of Ashley

Suites enjoy the extensive amenities on offer within the

wider village, including activities in the village pool,

time in the garden or enjoying a restaurant experience

with friends and family.

Spaciousness is a feature of the care suites, with a

fully accessible ensuite bathroom and a kitchenette with

a refrigerator and microwave to enable personalised

and convenient light refreshments for residents and

family. Individually controlled air-conditioning and a

55in television add to the impressive amenity on offer.

Aligned with the village’s upscale hospitality offering,

residents of Ashley Suites enjoy a quality dining

experience, supported by a dietician-designed gourmet

menu and daily social hour.

A private lounge area on the upper floor provides

both residents and families a place to congregate,

both for social engagements and also for respite and

reflection. On the first floor, a dedicated salon and

wellbeing suite allow residents to be pampered and

groomed while maintaining dignity in the privacy of

their residence.

All residents can access an in-house physiotherapist,

podiatrist, dedicated general practitioner, hair salon,

cinema, and swimming pool.

Raised garden beds allow residents to actively or

passively engage with the garden, adding meaning and

purpose to their days.

“I’m proud to say we have created an environment

which enhances a resident’s feeling of independence,

freedom and choice,” said Wilkinson.

“The collaborative approach we have fostered

between our clinical team and family members is

delivering remarkable outcomes and enhancing the

daily life of both our residents and our team.”

Generus was also a finalist in the newly founded

RVA Sustainability awards under the APL Best

Operator Led Sustainability Initiative category with

their Bay of Plenty pilot project at Pacific Coast and

Pacific Lakes Villages. Generus has led an extensive

sustainability pilot in the Pacific Coast and Pacific Lakes

Villages, achieving outstanding results and attracting

nationwide interest since the pilot’s commencement.

Following the successful roll out of the pilot, the

Generus sustainability programme has now been

adopted in all villages within the Generus Living

Collection.

Seniors embark on bear-making mission

NGAIO MARSH Retirement

Village residents have been

knitting up a storm with a Yuri

Bear-making mission.

The Ryman Healthcare Yuri

Bear project aims to make 20,000

knitted teddy bears for some of

the millions of children displaced

in the Ukraine since the country

was invaded by Russia.

The project is a labour of love

for Debra Richardson, Ryman’s

Victorian sales and community

relations manager, whose former

foster son Yuri remains in

Ukraine. Debra and her family

fostered Yuri in Melbourne following

the Chernobyl nuclear

disaster in the 1980s.

A group of Ngaio Marsh residents

have been meeting in the

village centre for as long as most

remember. Give them a task or

challenge, they say, and the team

will come through. Together

village residents and staff have

knitted about 160 teddy bears.

Valerie Dent, Shirley

Butterfield, Erin Wilson, Lois

Goold, Alison Chaffey, Thirza

Smith, Maree Comfort, Gill

Skinner and Wendy Walker are

members of the knitting group,

which meets regularly, and have

taken up the Yuri Bear challenge.

The group of dedicated

ladies are also making woollen

‘comfort’ blankets for those

in need in eastern European

countries, including the poorer

parts of Moldova, Bulgaria, and

Romania. The blankets are then

supplied to the charity Operation

Cover Up.

Booties and small woollen

beanies are also part of the

production line, with Margaret

Strangman, and Marjorie

Treblicock, specialising in these.

These lovingly made items

are sent to the Christchurch

Women’s Hospital neonatal unit.

Lois says she has knitted

about 30 of the Yuri bears,

having been a bit house-bound

during Covid-19. There were

probably more than 30 residents

throughout Ngaio Marsh village

who had knitted a Yuri Bear,

with many having produced 10

or more.

Every resident at Ryman’s

45 villages and the company’s

offices in Melbourne and

Christchurch were challenged to

contribute a bear.

Debra said the project was a

tangible way Ryman residents,

team members and the wider

community could make a small

difference to the lives of the

youngest members of the wartorn

country.

Erin Wilson says she has

concentrated on the stitching

faces onto the Yuri Bears. “It’s

not hard. I’ve done quite a few of

them. It’s just like darning,” she

says.

“I made the silly mistake of

saying: ‘Well if you don’t want

FUN: (Back row,

left to right) –

Alison Chaffey,

Thirza Smith,

Maree Comfort

and (front row)

Lois Goold and

Erin Wilson, with

a basket of Yuri

Bears.

to do the faces, I’ll do them’.

And they all arrived at our craft

group.”

All members of the knitting

group agree they feel better

for doing something towards

those impacted by the war in

Ukraine.

Valerie and the ladies say

they would welcome any

donations of wool to Ngaio

Marsh Retirement Village for

their projects.

Jayne and I would like to thank you for the work you’ve done to get us where

we are today. Bit of a blur really. Every step in the process has gone into

achieving the result today that exceeded our expectations. The detail and

professionalism has been on point. Staging, photography, the video along

with the marketing campaign all leading to a great property to present to

the market. These aspects all set the scene perfectly for the open homes and

visits leading to today’s outstanding auction result. Quiet night tonight but

sure there will be a few celebratory drinks later in the week.

New pavilion has a familiar look

• By Jaime Cunningham

NESTLED IN the corner of

Elmwood Park, many cricket

fans may recognise the Old Boys’

Collegian Cricket Club’s iconic

pavilion design from elsewhere

in the city.

The pavilion at the park shares

the same white, plastic roof

structure as Hagley Oval’s and is

set to open next weekend, ahead

of the 2022/23 cricket season for

the South Island’s largest cricket

club.

Club president

Steve Wakefield

got involved in

the process of a

new facility after

watching his sons

Steve

Wakefield

play at the park

and use the portable

changing

rooms “year after

year” following the Christchurch

earthquakes.

Wakefield joined the club’s

committee soon after and began

the process of getting Elmwood

Park a modern cricket pavilion.

Funding the pavilion began

after persuading his now late

father Jim Wakefield, who gave

the club money to start the build.

The pavilion has since been

named after him.

Wakefield calls the design a

“modest echo” of Hagley Oval’s

roof design of five peaks.

“We decided to do a similar

one for Elmwood Park, just with

a single peak.”

Trevor Watt, of Athfield Architects,

worked on both Hagley

and Elmwood’s cricket pavilions

and says the design creates the

“desired village green concept.”

He says “there is a modern

international tradition, which

originated at Lord’s Cricket

Ground, for this building typology

to reflect cricket.”

“The white pavilion colour

against a green backdrop echoes

the traditional cricket whites

against a green outfield.”

Canterbury Magician and

OBC premier women’s player

Abby Gerken says the new pavilion

is a “brilliant asset” to the

club.

The 20-year-old has played for

the club since she was 11 and has

only ever known the old Portacom

buildings at Elmwood Park.

She says, “without the pavilion,

there were a lot of issues

regarding social activities so

hopefully, the new facilities are

able to bring all the teams closer

together and build that club

environment even more.”

“I honestly think that Elmwood

Park is like a little Hagley

Oval… not a bad thing to associate

with club cricket.”

With approximately 500 junior

players at the club, the new pavilion

is exciting for young players

who haven’t known undamaged

clubrooms.

Eight-year-old OBC player Ollie

Turner has played for the club

for three years, and thinks the

new pavilion is good for the club,

saying the old changing rooms

were “really small.”

He enjoys going down to

games at Hagley Oval in the

summer and says the design

of his club’s pavilion is “pretty

cool.”

“It does actually look like

MODERN:

The Old

Boys’

Collegian

Cricket

Club’s new

pavilion

Hagley Oval,” he said.

Wakefield says the club has

been “really pleased” with feedback

on the design.

“A lot of people have said to

me, just driving down Heaton St,

it looks so iconic in the corner of

the park.”

He says that it’s like a “revitalisation”

to have the pavilion

finished before the 100th club

anniversary in 2024 as well.

The Jim Wakefield pavilion

will be officially opened at 9am

on Saturday with past and

present representative players of

the club available for photos and

signatures.

Buses ‘woefully lacking’

• By Natalie Pham

DALLINGTON residents are

asking for more bus options to

combat social isolation.

“Woefully

lacking” is how

Dallington

Community

Trust chairman

David Collins

described the

David

Collins

available bus

services.

There are

currently no

buses going into the area after

9.25pm or out after 7.52pm,

with the exception of Sundays

when they run at 8.22pm and

6.50pm respectively.

The loss of the Orbiter

bus after the February

22, 2011, earthquake also

means residents have to wait

30-minutes on weekdays and

an hour on weekends to go to

The Palms.

“Restoring the Orbiter bus

service through Dallington

would help decrease the

level of social isolation,” said

Collins.

He sent a letter to the

Waitai Coastal-Burwood

Community Board last

week to raise awareness

about the challenges facing

residents.

Said Collins: “There is

not so much things to do

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think Dallingtion

needs more buses? Email your views to

natalie.pham@starmedia.kiwi

in Dallington anymore. So

elderly are feeling isolated as

there is nothing to do and

buses are limited.”

With limited options for

recreational activities, he

said a group of young people

had turned to vandalism and

graffiti.

Many stores have had

their windows smashed or

scratched, Collins said.

The community craft shop

on McBratneys Rd has also

had multiple failed break-in

attempts.

Said Collins: “We’re lucky

that we have a great graffiti

team that will quickly come

out and help with repainting

the wall.”

The team, which started

out in 2008, is part of a city

council initiative to reduce

graffiti. However, the clean up

team does not cover scratched

or broken glass. To bring the

community together, the trust

has held many events over

the past few years, including

Christmas hunts and street

barbecues.

About 75 children

participated in its Christmas

event last year.

The trustees also fund

events that are not covered by

grants.

“It’s been getting difficult

due to the reduction in

funding. But we’re not the

only organisation (which)

suffers from that,” Collins

said.

He said the other main

reason for the letter was to

thank the community board

for its support and funding of

the craft store.

Environment Canterbury

has not responded to

questions from the Nor’West

News as to whether Orbiter

bus services through

Dallington will be restored in

the future.

Saturday competition.

He also plays for the Shirley

Hawks masters team. His club involvement

also extends to coaching

a Shirley Hawks 11-year-olds

team. It includes his daughter,

Myiah along with four other girls

in the mixed gender team.

Harley’s selection is a great

honour for him, his whanau

and the Shirley Hawks Club are

exceptionally proud of him.

Harley has only one arm but

this has not stopped him participating

in full contact games

with distinction, in his favourite

sport. He welcomes any player to

join him at the Hawks, especially

if you have not played before or

have a disability.

Said Harley: “Shirley is a fully

inclusive club and if I was not

playing for the Hawks, I would

not have advanced to be a World

Cup Kiwi.”

South Island players usually

have limited exposure for Kiwi

selection. To have Harley represent

Canterbury and the whole

of the South Island is absolutely

fantastic his Hawks coach Jimmy

Young said.

The club is hoping Harley brings

the PDRL World Cup home to

Shirley as a Christmas gift.

•Anyone interested in

joining the Hawks for 2023, can

phone Jimmy Young on 021 420

937 or the junior club captain

Andre Posthuma on 027 303

7088. Players are welcome for all

grades and abilities. For 2023 the

club is focusing on entering a full

girls team in the 12/13/14 year

age, to complement the work

Harley has achieved with his

mixed 11-year-olds team.

Event to lure women and girls into sailing

THE PLEASANT Point Yacht

Club in the South New Brighton

Park will hold a sailing event on

the weekend of October 1 and

2 expressly for women and girls

interested in getting into sailing.

The weekend is called Wahine

on the Water and is part of World

Sailing’s ‘Steering the Course –

Women’s Sailing Festival 2022’,

which aims to attract and retain

more women and girls to the

sport, including all ages and levels

of sailing ability.

Pleasant Point Yacht Club’s

initiative in holding this

event has the full backing and

encouragement of the national

body, Yachting New Zealand.

The activities on both days are

scheduled to coincide with high

tide in the estuary.

The interest in this event is

such that the Saturday “have

a go day” between 8am-1pm,

is unfortunately already fully

subscribed. However, girls and

women who have never sailed

before are welcome to attend

and find out more about sailing

from the club’s committee and

spectators are most welcome to

attend.

Participants will learn how to

rig a dinghy, how to read the wind

directions and how to sail in a

small boat either on their own or

with another person.

Depending on the weather, the

club’s recently acquired Sigrid

trailer yacht sail trainer will be

out sailing with a female crew,

under the supervision of an

experienced club member. On

Sunday, the programme runs

from 9.30am-1pm and includes

a women’s cup regatta involving

three short races between

10.30am and noon and sailors

will be on site rigging their boats

from around 9.30am. Sailing in

the Sunday event is open to any

woman or girl registered with a

Yachting NZ affiliated club.

The race courses will be close

to shore so spectators will get a

great view from the shore from

the expansive decks in front of the

clubhouse. Refreshments will be

available at the club.

The racing will be followed

the presentation of the Margaret

Kennett Trophy and prize-giving.

Access to the South New

Brighton Park is off Beatty St,

the club is at the end of the park’s

access road.

The club has over 20 women

and girls actively sailing on a

regular basis and two of the club’s

committee are women.

8 Dos and Don’ts for a Well-

Functioning Walk In Pantry

1. Do consider what you’ll be

using the pantry for

A walk in pantry can take various forms

and perform different functions, so make

sure yours delivers exactly what you

need it to. At the planning stage, work

out what you want to use the space for

and any activities you plan to do there so

you can work on the layout and inclusions

accordingly.

Ask yourself, will the space just be used

for food storage or will you be prepping

meals in there too? Do you need to

include a sink? A second dishwasher? Do

you have enough benchtop space and

power points to leave appliances out

so teenagers can make an after-school

snack without messing up the kitchen?

2. Do think about functionality

Before you automatically

allocate a task or function

to your walk in pantry,

consider whether it makes

practical sense to do so.

Some commonly used

food items, such as oils and

spices, are better located

near the cooking zone in

your kitchen. Do you really

want to be preparing tea

and coffee in the walk in

pantry when you have

guests over or would you

prefer to do it in the kitchen? And while

it’s great to wash (and hide) dirty dishes

at a sink in the pantry, how far would you

then have to walk to put them away?

On the other hand, large pots and serving

platters might be better stored in the

pantry if they are not used often.

3. Do opt for adjustable shelves

– but don’t go too wide

Having several sets of narrow adjustable

shelves makes it easy to store items of

different heights and sizes in your pantry.

It also allows you to easily sort items of

different sizes into categories, such as

baking goods, tins and snacks.

But be aware that if shelves are too wide

they can bow when filled to capacity.

If you don’t like the look of holes in

adjustable shelves, remember that most

will be hidden when the shelves are filled.

4. Do spend wisely on materials

A walk in pantry should put practicality

first and looks second. But that doesn’t

mean the space has to be unsightly and

utilitarian.

Laminate benches and open shelves are

hardwearing and practical, and won’t

break the budget. They come in a vast

range of colours and finishes so you

should be able to find one that matches

the colour of your kitchen materials in

order to create a seamless look.

You could also use laminate (or paint) in

the walk in pantry to have a bit of fun with

colour.

5. Don’t forget the view from the

kitchen

Even if there is a door between the

kitchen and walk in pantry, it will probably

be left open a lot of the time, so the space

will be in view of your kitchen. Because

of this, you’ll want to find ways to

prevent your walk in pantry from looking

cluttered and untidy.

While shallow open shelves make access

easy and allow you to see what you’ve got

at a glance, they can look messy from an

open door. An easy and affordable way to

make them look neat is to store items in

matching containers on shelves.

If you have the space, specify drawers

and closed cabinets under benches

where you can conceal pantry clutter.

Just remember this may not work well in

a small pantry, where open drawers and

cupboard doors can create visual clutter.

If you prefer, you could have closed

cabinets near the door and open ones in

out-of-sight parts of the pantry.

When specifying drawers, bear in mind

that styles with low fronts are easier to

see inside.

Tip: If you have room, allocate a small

area in your walk in pantry to store a

broom and a step ladder to access higher

storage.

6. Don’t forget the electrics

Specify plenty of power points in your

walk in pantry so you can leave small

appliances plugged in and ready to go.

And look to create a pleasant and

practical lighting set-up. Most walk in

pantries don’t have windows and just

rely on a single ceiling light, which can be

harsh and make it hard to see to the back

of shelves.

Create a more functional and visually

appealing scheme by adding LED

striplights under shelves. Install a dimmer

switch so you can alter lighting levels to

suit the mood and function.

7. Do get your measurements

right

For overhead cupboards, a depth of

between 350 and 400 millimetres is ideal

as it creates generous storage while still

being shallow enough to allow you to

reach right to the back.

Allow between 1,000 and 1,200

millimetres of space between benchtops

so you can move through the pantry

comfortably or accommodate two people

side-by-side in the space.

Overly narrow benchtops won’t provide

enough space to prep and store small

appliances; too deep and they’ll be tricky

to clean. Aim for a sweet spot of between

600 and 700 millimetres for the depth of

your benchtops.

8. Don’t underestimate the

importance of natural light

Drawing sunlight into the pantry makes it

feel bigger, brighter and more welcoming.

I love to bring natural light into a walk in

pantry through splashback windows or a

skylight. Strategically positioned mirrors

within your joinery can help bounce light

around further.
