This is the history of the first 50 years of Rannerdale on its site in Hansons Lane, Upper Riccarton. The work traces the half-century of care of ex-servicemen and women through eight themes that best represent the values and unique nature of Rannerdale. It includes some pre-history of the war veterans' homes in Christchurch, and extends to descriptions of the Hansons Lane site, the residents and staff over the years, the supporters, visitors, special events and some of the lighter moments in the lives of those at Rannerdale.
Enjoy this light literary tour of Rannerdale and learn what has made the place so special. Read this pictorial history and discover:
*The origins of the name 'Rannerdale'; its military connections and its links with one of the early settler families of Christchurch.
*The glory of the old homestead 'Stevenholme' in Hansons Lane and the legend of Nurse Maude's residence there.
*The development of the prize-winning rose and native plant gardens and the annual giant tomato growing contest.
*The representation of New Zealand's own military traditions and history etched in the faces of Rannerdale's residents presented in the portrait gallery.
*The stories of the characters and hard cases of the Rannerdale community that include tales of Ozzie Anderson - The Voice of Armagh St, and Canterbury sportsmen Bert Blazey, Alf Bourne, Bert Hirst and George Crimp.
*The impressive records of service completed by faithful, diligent and caring staf
