Rental drought bites resident
By PETER HIDE
You can't move forward
because they haven't
given you enough money
to buy a new house.
DAY BY DAY: Janet Cramer
remains hopeful the right
house will ''come about''.
AN ELDERLY Kaiapoi woman
describes as a classic Catch-22 situ-
ation her experience of being red-
zoned and not being able to rent or
buy to replace her Raven St cottage.
Janet Cramer, who came to New
Zealand from England in 1962 and is
well into her 80s, had applied for an
exemption from the end of July date
to vacate her cottage, but said she
had no reason to believe she would
be granted it.
I was given only $200,000 by the
government for my land and house,
and that is not enough to buy a
replacement section, let alone build
on it, she said.
I want a section that fronts onto a
street, so I can live in the world, so to
speak. There just are no places to
rent in Kaiapoi at the moment. I
know, because I ve been looking.
I ve got my name down with local
rental agents and so forth, but
nobody is moving.
I ve tried all avenues, including a
state unit, but I m just not eligible.
It s an absolute anomaly.
Mrs Cramer, who lives alone, said
nobody wanted to lend her money
because at her age they don t know
when they are going to get it back .
close to a bus stop and use buses to
You can t move forward because
they haven t given you enough
money to buy a new house.
I know people who say they can-
not move unless their children help
them. And that s not right.
Mrs Cramer said she had tried all
avenues, including two local MPs,
who could not help her find rental
accommodation, let alone a place she
could call her own.
It s terrible to think that nearly
three years have gone by since the
first earthquakes and they haven t
sorted out what they are doing.
She believed it was a land grab
by the Waimakariri District Council
to obtain elite land like hers, close
to the river and just a stone s thrown
from the central business district.
I live day by day and believe
that a little house just for me will
It just hasn t happened yet.
48Hours win no joke for Kaiapoi girls
By CATE BROUGHTON
GOOD: A still
Joker, with Harry
Oram as the
FOR THOSE in the know, winning
the Incredibly Strange Best Bad
Film category at the Rialto 48Hours
Film Festival Christchurch finals on
Sunday was actually very good.
Fortunately, the winning Kaiapoi
High School team -- Procrasti Nation
-- knew the award for their film
entry, Joker, meant the judges
thought it was incredibly strange...
and loved it.
Although none of the all-girl team
could attend the awards night, they
were thrilled with the accolade when
told about it by media studies tea-
cher Brent Morrison.
I absolutely was not expecting to
win. I was amazed, it was brilliant,
director Phoebe Biddle said.
She said the team, which included
year 13 media studies students
Alyssa Wyber-Moore, Alisha Bishop,
Sarah Wright, Jess Wilson and
Sarah Gilmore, were stumped when
they received an unusual genre to
work with: immobilised .
We didn t have a clue what it was
and we had to phone Mr Morrison
and ask him what we should do.
After spending all Friday night
developing their idea, the girls
decided they would bury the main
character, played by friend Harry
Oram, up to his neck in sand.
During the two to three hours they
spent filming, Harry s legs became
numb and they had to dig him out
and then bury him again. The film
depicts a young man with multiple
personalities, who is stuck in the
sand with the tide coming in.
It s quite abstract, but we had
the idea that he thought he was
more than one person, so he s talking
The team will now have to wait to
see if their film will be selected to go
to the national finals.
