Each couple raised money for chosen Sumner charities, organisations and clubs. • More photos, page 11 PHOTO: NATASHA C PHOTOGRAPHY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD A public funding campaign to raise the remainder of the money to rebuild Lyttelton Timeball Station has been delayed. Heritage New Zealand was to start its public funding push for the remaining $200,000- $300,000 to rebuild the category 1 heritage building in March. Construction was scheduled to start in July. However, Heritage NZ southern region general manager Sheila Watson said the funding campaign had been postponed while the final project costings were being sought. She said there were also site access issues being worked through with Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team and the city council. Heritage NZ’s board will meet on May 19 to discuss the funding campaign and the rebuild as a whole, she said. Following that meeting it would be clearer as to when the final funding push, and construction would start, she said. Built in 1876, Lyttelton Timeball Station provided ships in Lyttelton Harbour with a timekeeping service. It marked noon by dropping the timeball from the tower. It slowly crumbled in the August 2010, February 2011 and June 2011 earthquakes and was later demolished. It has been meticulously 3D scanned so it will be rebuilt exactly the same as the original. About $3 million has been raised through significant donations for the rebuild, which was originally expected to cost about $3.4 million.
