Hi neighbours,
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions about their sickly plant babies. Houseplants might be fashionable, but they can be tricky to get right. Whether it’s the wrong light, too much or too little water, or a pesky draft, it doesn’t take much for your prize peace lily to turn yellow or an infestation of bugs to set in.

We put some of your houseplant questions to the plant doctors from Kings Plant Barn to diagnose. Find their answers here.

How has being close to someone who has trained and practises psychotherapy affected you?

Very little research has been conducted into the experiences of people close to psychotherapists and I believe this is an important area of inquiry.

I would like to meet and interview people about their experiences with the intention of understanding how being close to a person who has trained and practises psychotherapy impacts the lives of significant others.

I am looking for people who meet the following criteria:
• Partners, children, parents, or siblings of someone practising psychotherapy
• Have lived with the person practising psychotherapy for a period of more than five years during and/or after their training.
• Are over the age of 18 years

Confidentiality all information shared will be treated with absolute confidentiality. All efforts will be made to ensure participants remain unidentifiable in the final report and your privacy respected at all times.

If you agree to participate, then I would interview you for approximately one hour and no more than ninety minutes.

A small koha will be offered in appreciation of participation.

If you think you would like to participate or have any further questions, please contact Jane Tuson tusonj@icloud.com or 021 716622. I can send a full participation information sheet to you.

1933: 'A red-letter day for women'

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hey neighbours,

Hey neighbours,

Did you know...

“Although New Zealand is believed to have been the first country in the world to give women the right to sit in Parliament, it is one of the few which have consistently refused to elect a woman to its national assembly,” The Press wrote on September 14, 1933.

“Legislation permitting women to stand for Parliament was introduced in 1919 by the then Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. W. F. Massey, and subsequently passed.”

Lyttelton MP Elizabeth McCombs​ had just shattered that glass ceiling after a by-election, becoming New Zealand’s first woman MP.

She had previously run as the Labour candidate in Kaiapoi and Christchurch North and became the Lyttelton candidate in a by-election after the death of her husband, James, who had held the seat since 1913.

The Press noted that “Mrs McCombs’s majority is larger than any Mr McCombs secured during his whole 20 years in Parliament”.

The Press reported from a packed Returned Soldiers’ Association Hall in Lyttelton.

“‘This is the proudest moment of my life,’ said Mrs McCombs, ‘but yet one of the saddest. You all know that my husband wished more than anything else on earth that I should sit in Parliament, and we had both hoped we should sit there together. I cannot help feeling a tinge of bitterness that it was not to be.’

McCombs died before the 1935 election, and was succeeded by her son, Sir Terence McCombs, who held the Lyttelton seat until 1951.
