Trees in Christchurch's Botanic Gardens will be lit up year-round by the end of next month.

The Christchurch City Council is spending $900,000 on 119 lights to be placed in the Armstrong Lawn area adjacent to Rolleston Ave.

Some members of the public were concerned about the light pollution and the effect the lights would have on the ecosystem.

Council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said the lights had almost no UV spectrum, which reduced or eliminated insects' attraction to the light. The lights could also be dimmed and would not be on all night.

Not only is this a salve for loneliness, it sparks interaction, communication and mobility in residents, says Tracy Fairhall, activities coordinator for Raeburn Lifecare in Cambridge.

For Rebecca, it is simply a joy to spread joy. She remembers the first rest home visit she arranged. “At one point I looked over at a lovely resident who was 100 and he was kind of shaking and I was worried. I got closer and saw that he was shaking with laughter because my boys were having a paper plane competition, throwing paper planes from one end of the lounge to the other. It was beautiful.”
