A SURPRISE royal visitor has

made a special appearance

in celebration of Riccarton’s

Margaret Stoddart Retirement

Village’s 25 th birthday.

Her Majesty the Queen – also

known as village townhouse

resident Veronica Shepherd –

popped into the village but was

unable to stay for celebratory

tea, cake and oysters.

“I’m seeing your Prime Minister

Jacinda Ardern tomorrow so

I’ve got to get back. My very best

wishes and congratulations on

your 25 th anniversary,” she said.

The village was opened in

1993 and was named in honour

of the talented Canterbury

painter.

Staff dressed in Victorian

outfits in honour of the village’s

namesake, and residents Janet

Emeleus and Audrey Burton

took the theme to heart by

dressing as Margaret Stoddart

and her mother Anna.

Ryman Healthcare chief

executive Gordon MacLeod

said the village would always

hold a special place in his heart

– it was his nana’s home for six

years.

She lived in a townhouse

before moving to the rest home,

was Mr MacLeod’s first contact

with Ryman Healthcare.

Long-serving staff members

Anita Chapman, Jeni Keogh

and Beck Little looked

after Mr MacLeod’s nan,

and he thanked them for their

long service to the village’s

residents.

“Margaret Stoddart is a

special place and will always be

special to me,’’ he said.

Avenue

close to

banning

heavy

vehicles

• By Emily O’Connell

LODESTAR AVE and Lady

Wigram Retirement Village

residents may be a step closer to

having heavy vehicles banned

from driving on their street.

It comes as operational

guidelines for the new Traffic and

Parking Bylaw are close to being

finalised.

Residents have been pleading

with the city council, Halswell

Ward city councillor Anne

Galloway and Wigram MP

Megan Woods to put restrictions

on heavy vehicles which have

been keeping them awake at night

for a year.

In October, village owner John

Tooby launched a verbal attack

on four elderly residents, while

being interviewed about a sign

they had put up on a village fence

protesting noisy trucks. A resident

then removed the sign and Mr

Tooby later apologised for the

ordeal.

City council manager

operations transport Steffan

Thomas said the guidelines have

been drafted and circulated.
