Plan to deepen harbour channel

sparks environmental concerns

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Plans to dig a deeper channel

in Lyttelton Harbour are

progressing, but critics are

worried about the impact on

the environment, including

endangered hector’s dolphins.

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch

wants to deepen the harbour’s

navigation channel by 2m to

accommodate larger container

vessels.

It plans to apply for resource

consent mid-way

through this year.

But University

of Otago marine

animal expert

Professor

Liz Slooten

(left) said the

dredging could

be disruptive

to hector’s dolphins living in

and around the harbour. It it

estimated there are just over

7270 left.

Professor Slooten has been

doing research on hector’s

dolphins around Banks

Peninsula, and said the

population was already under

threat from fishing.

She said dredging the harbour

floor could remove marine life

fish feed on, ultimately having

channel in the harbour.

a flow-on affect to the dolphins,

she said.

She said Port Otago was

also looking to dredge to

accommodate larger vessels.

“It doesn’t make sense

for everyone to be doing

developments, probably paid

out of taxpayer money, doing

environmental damage when

we’re not sure if these ships are

coming,” Professor Slooten said.

LPC chief executive Peter

Davie said it wanted to do the

project in order to keep up with

international shipping trends to

support the regional economy.

He said LPC was working

with independent experts to

understand effects on marine

ecologies, marine mammals and

their food sources, both inside

and outside the harbour.

MP and Rapaki runanga

member Nuk Korako said the

runanga wanted the dredged

sediment to be dumped outside

the harbour.

He said the runanga

understood it was a working

port, and if they could find a

balance, they would be happy.

Green List MP Eugenie Sage

said LPC needed to consult with

the community about its plans

before it applied for consent.

“Leaving it just to the formal

Resource Management Act

processes is not consultation,

especially given the short

time-frames under the RMA

for people to understand and

comment on complex proposals.”

Lyttelton-Mt Herbert

Community Board chairwoman

Paula Smith said the dumping of

sediment dredged up would be

the most contentious issue.

She said some people in

Sumner and Taylors Mistake had

previously been worried that the

sediment could travel north with

the sea current.

Call to reduce speed limits

FREEDOM

Residents suggest

ways to clamp down

on boy racers

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Governors Bay residents have

come up with measures to try

and help police clamp down on

boy racer issues in the area.

Four community

representatives met on Monday

to discuss the progress that has

been made on the problem over

the past year.

Resident Rosie Belton said

the group decided it wanted the

speed limit lowered on Dyers

Pass Rd from 100km/h down to

70km/h.

“At the moment if they’re

going 90km/h and it’s

dangerous, police can’t do

anything because the limit is

100km/h.”

The community also wanted

more signage, including flashing

speed signs at the entry points

to Governors Bay, to make

drivers aware to slow down, she

said.

Another point raised was the

possibility of having a different

surface at the bottom of Dyers

Pass Rd to try and prevent boy

racers from doing burnouts and

donuts there.

“We just want to feel safe on

our roads.”

Lyttelton-Mt Herbert

Community Board member

Denis Aldridge, who was at the

informal meeting, would take

the issues raised to the board,

and city council.

Community board

chairwoman and Summit Road

Protection Authority member

Paula Smith said a meeting

was held about three weeks ago

to talk about how to curb the

problem.

City council staff, authority

members and community board

members came up with four

possible mitigation measures,

including possibly prohibiting

parts of Summit Rd to vehicles

at certain times.

A report would be prepared

based on those options, and

would go to the authority’s next

meeting in July to be discussed,

Ms Smith said.

Ms Belton said Governors Bay

residents would be happy for

parts of the Summit Rd to be

closed at times, because it would

stop boy racers using the route.

a lower speed limit and more

CAMPING BAN

EXTENDED

The temporary freedom

camping ban at French Farm,

Wainui and Ferrymead’s

Windsport Park has been

extended until May 31, 2017.

City council chief executive

Karleen Edwards made the

decision to extend the ban

last week. Non-self-contained

freedom campers were

allowed in five sites across

the city under a new bylaw,

however, it drew problems with

overcrowding and overuse of

toilets, forcing the city council

to put a temporary ban in place

in March. The city council

will conduct a partial review

of the bylaw this year, and an

extensive review next year.

ANDREW TURNER TO STAND

IN BANKS PENINSULA WARD

City councillor Andrew Turner

has been selected by The

People’s Choice to contest the

Banks Peninsula ward in the

upcoming local body elections.

Cr Turner said if he was reelected

as the Banks Peninsula

councillor, his priorities would

be to ensure the new community

board was a success to continue

to deliver the rebuild and

repair of facilities, ensure the

community is involved in

decision making, and make

sure the peninsula voices were

heard.

Ferry a vital connection

Diamond

Harbour

Community

Association

chairman

Richard

Suggate says if

the Diamond

Harbour Ferry

is to be part

of an effective public transport

network, it needs to easily

connect with bus services.

The Diamond Harbour ferry

is a vital connection between

Lyttelton and the harbour’s

southern bays. During the

week it takes residents to and

from school, work and town

appointments. In the weekend

it’s popular with shoppers in the

Lyttelton market and visitors

coming to enjoy the area’s

coastal walks, cafes and beach.

Instead of keeping the ferry

berth at its current site, where

SOAP

BOX

it’s short walk to London

St and the town centre, the

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch

has approval to move the ferry

service west into Dampier

Bay. From there it’s a longer,

less convenient walk to town,

especially for parents with

push chairs, people carrying

shopping, and seniors.

The recently released Dampier

Bay draft design guide does not

show a bus turning area and

adequate car parking for ferry

users close to the proposed

Dampier Bay terminal. If the

ferry is to be part of an effective

public transport network then it

needs to easily connect with bus

services to and from Lyttelton

and the city.

The current repair work on

the bus turning area which

means buses are in Norwich

Quay and no longer close to

the ferry, shows the problem

when ferry and bus services are

disconnected. Bus timetables at

evening rush hour have become

meaningless. People miss the

ferries they want when buses

arrive late in Lyttelton because

of city traffic congestion;

blocked bus lanes in Colombo

St; and the extra distance

between the bus stop and the

ferry.

If we want reliable, wellpatronised

public transport links

between the central city, Lyttelton

and the harbour bays, then city

bus lanes needed to be policed

and kept clear for buses; the No

28 Express bus service popular

before the earthquakes reinstated;

realistic timetables prepared; and

a modern ferry terminal built

sooner rather than later.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think

the Diamond Harbour Ferry

service links well with the bus

timetable? Email your views to

bridget.rutherford@starmedia.

National List MP based in

the Port Hills, Nuk Korako,

says we need to clean up our

waterways for the future:

Earlier this month I joined

roughly 1300 volunteers in

the inaugural

‘Mother of all

Clean Ups’.

Right across

Christchurch,

numerous

community

groups, residents’

associations and

individuals came

together to pick

up over twenty

tonnes of litter

from along the

estuary edge and

riverbanks.

Thank you to the Avon-

Ōtākaro Network, Ōpāwaho

Heathcote River Network

and Avon-Heathcote Estuary

Ihutai Trust for coordinating

this superb initiative, and

thank you to everyone

who took part. This was a

wonderful opportunity for

us all to reconnect with our

natural assets.

It was great to see such a

fantastic community effort

going in to cleaning up

our local waterways, but

managing our freshwater

resources is also a national

issue and one that requires

Government action.

That is why the Government

is taking steps to improve our

freshwater management. We

have already committed more

than $350 million on projects

to clean up and protect New

Zealand’s most

iconic lakes, rivers

and wetlands.

We are also

strengthening

and clarifying the

national standards

and setting limits

regionally to protect

the environment and

water users. These

steps are crucial

in making sure we

leave our rivers,

lakes and aquifers

in better shape for future

generations.

Cleaning up our rivers

and lakes is a big task and in

many cases it will take time

to see the results we need.

With both the Government

and our local communities

tackling this matter head-on,

I know we will continue to

make significant progress

in protecting this important

resource.

HAVE YOUR SAY: do you

think the Government is

doing enough to clean up

waterways? Email bridget.

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Lyttelton firefighters braved the

cold on Saturday to unveil the

original foundation stone where

their new station will be built.

The foundation stone came

from Lyttelton’s original fire station

on the corner of Oxford St

and Sumner Rd, which the brigade

moved out of in 1967.

It had been in storage until it

was installed at the Oxford St

site at the weekend, alongside

a new plaque explaining its significance.

The volunteer fire brigade’s

Oxford St station was badly

damaged in the February 2011

earthquake and later demolished.

Work to build a new station

on the site has begun, and is expected

to be completed by December.

Chief fire officer Mark Buckley

said brigade life member and

former chief fire officer John

Fogarty who received a Queen’s

Fire Service Medal, unveiled the

foundation stone.

He said it was a symbolic

day.

fire officer John Fogarty unveils

McCulla and Peter Lauryssens

and MP Nuk Korako watch on.

The brigade had to move to the

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch

car park following the quakes,

before moving back into temporary

premises on Oxford St,

and then into its current home on

Norwich Quay.

“It’s great to see some forward

movement on the station,” Mr

Buckley said.

Water levels

being

monitored

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Banks Peninsula’s stream levels

are being monitored this week

to see whether water restrictions

need to be put in place.

City council reticulation manager

Rob Meek said the city council

was investigating the introduction

of water restrictions in Banks

Peninsula.

Following the rainfall over the

weekend, the city council was going

to monitor the situation over

the week to give it a better idea of

whether the restrictions needed to

be imposed.

The networks most at risk were

Duvauchelle, Takamatua and

Akaroa, he said.

“We are currently working out

the stream flows for all streams

in Banks Peninsula to decide

whether restrictions are needed.’’

Banks Peninsula Water Zone

Committee chairman Steve

Lowndes said the area was particularly

exposed in dry weather

because it was not connected to

Christchurch’s aquifers.

But he said it was not a one-off,

rather the beginning of an ongoing

trend as a result of climate change.

“We all must start to change our

attitude to the way we consume

and conserve water.”

Glen Walker

Firefighter takes up challenge

On Saturday, Lyttelton’s volunteer firefighter Glen

Walker will tackle the gruelling Sky Tower Stair

Challenge “one last time”. Bridget Rutherford spoke

to the 62-year-old about the mental and physical

challenge of running up 1103 stairs in full kit, his

most memorable call outs, and losing his daughter.

So you are competing in

this month’s Sky Tower Stair

Challenge, when do you start

training for it?

Well the event is so popular,

entries for it open in November

each year. So I always start

training then to ease into it. It’s

quite hard to ration training for

six months, but it’s just something

you have to do. Living in

Lyttelton is great because you

just go out your back door and

there are steep places. Going

up Bridle Path is good. You’ve

got to train on stairs with some

weight on to get your body used

to climbing. As you get closer

to the time, you start going out

full kit to get used to climbing

with the equipment. Every year

we do the Rendezvous challenge,

which is about 20 floors.

It’s about the tallest building in

Christchurch now. That was in

early April, and the Lyttelton

team won the volunteer brigade

prize.

So how many times have you

taken part in the Sky Tower

challenge?

This will be number six. The

first time I did it was the year of

the February 2011 earthquake.

We were in training and then

the quake hit. The Lyttelton

brigade camped at the station for

about six weeks. We cancelled

and some of Auckland brigades

called us and paid for our airfares

to still take part. I got third

in the over 50s category that

year.

Can you fill me in on what it

involves?

Well you start at five or six

floors below the street level at

the Auckland Sky Tower. And

everyone goes off about every

30 seconds starting at 7.30am.

And they keep going every 30

seconds until mid-afternoon.

Everyone is dressed in full kit,

so it’s just a case of trying to

judge the pace, the air in your

cylinder, and you go round and

and trying to out-do some of the

just turned 62 and I can still beat

some of the younger guys.

What is your best time?

I did 12 minutes 26 seconds.

That was three years ago when I

won the over 50s. Winning or trying

to win is a great motivation.

How many are in the Lyttelton

team?

We have eight in our team this

year from early 20s through to

me. We’ve raised nearly $21,000

so far and we’re right up there

among the top fund raising

teams in the country. Two of our

team members, Peter and Craig,

are right up there for the highest

individual fund raiser so that’s

pretty amazing.

You mentioned you’ve done

lots of cycle races and runs,

how does the challenge stack

up against those?

Out of all the things I’ve done,

half marathons and cycle races,

this is the only one that’s made

me just about physically sick. It

is so extremely tough that when

you get to the top, and even

up to half an hour later, you’re

trying to stop yourself heaving

into a nearby rubbish bin. That’s

part of the mental challenge, it’s

not just about the physical challenge.

And you’ve won a couple of

titles haven’t you?

to climb Sky Tower for charity

The first year I was third in the

over 50s, and the following year

I was second, then the year after

I won the over 50s. Then they

created the over 60s category, so

more older people are doing it.

I think this will be the last one,

your heart rate gets so high you

have to wonder if someone my

age should be doing it (laughs).

How long have you been a

firefighter?

I started in Governors Bay in

2002, and I’ve been with Lyttelton

since 2007.

What would have been the

toughest thing you have encountered

through your role as

a firefighter?

I think dealing with medical

calls, if there is someone injured

or very sick. We’re lucky in

Lyttelton we don’t get too many

accidents like other brigades.

There are a lot of physical challenges,

sometimes you can be up

on the roof in gale force winds

trying to bolt down a piece of

tin. It’s not just fires, you’ve got

to be quite resourceful and solve

problems.

What are some of the quirkier

call outs you’ve been to?

People often joke about getting

cats out of trees, and that

does happen. You might have

to quietly get the hose out and

Sky Tower Stair Challenge.

spray them so they come down.

Someone once said, you’ll never

find a cat’s skeleton in a tree,

they always come down. Those

are the stranger ones, animals

getting stuck somewhere.

Is there any rescue or fire

that you were called out to that

sticks in your mind?

Probably the recent one where

there was a fire at the top of a

steep road. It was a huge physical

effort. It was in the middle of

the night and turned out to be an

abandoned house fire way up in

the trees. That, and some of the

ships fire are probably the most

interesting ones.

And can you tell me a bit

about your family?

My wife’s name is Katharin,

and we have three children, they

have left home now. We lost

a daughter in 1996. She was

13 and died suddenly, cause

unknown. They didn’t find

anything wrong with her heart

or brain, she was perfect, she

just collapsed one day. We’ve

been pushing a lot for people

and organisations to get defibrillators

and I think it’s a much

bigger thing now. She could

have possibly been saved if they

had been available at the time.

We’ve only sort of recovered

from that. Grief is unusual thing

to go through, it can make you

stronger but it can knock you

down, too. Georgia was a good

little dancer, she was always

keen to go to Ireland for the

Irish Dancing Championships.

She would have been 21 in

about 2003, and my wife took

her ashes to Ireland, climbed a

sacred mountain and scattered

them there. Once we get our

house back, we would like to go

back to Ireland and visit her.

Lauryssens, Kevin Hurl and Andrew Legge all ran last year’s The Star

City2Surf 6km event in full kit.

And when you’re not working

or out on call outs, what

do you like to do in your spare

time?

We do a lot of DIY at home

and a lot of gardening. We always

love a project, but we’re in

a rental in Heathcote, so once we

get back into our home once our

insurance is sorted, we will get

into some more projects. .

Community centre name wanted

Lyttelton gears

up for festival

COMMUNITY INPUT: The new Sumner community facility needs a name – and you can make your

suggestions.

Calling all creative Sumner

residents – the new community

centre, library and museum

needs a name.

The Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board discussed the best

way to name the new facility in

March and now the city council

is asking residents to submit their

ideas.

From there, the best suggestions

will be voted on by the public,

and a winner announced in

July, before construction is due

to begin in August.

Suggestions opened on Monday

and will continue until June

12.

The two-storey, 1200 sq m facility

will be built on the corner

of Wakefield Ave and Nayland

St, where the former community

centre sat.

It is expected to take 10 months

to build.

Communities, housing and

economic development committee

chairman Andrew Turner

said the name was one of the last

things to fall into place.

“We are looking for something

that will capture the elements

of the Sumner community

and all that the centre will offer

– a library, museum, meeting

rooms and large hall with a

stage.”

A similar campaign was used

to name Te Hapua: Halswell

Centre, and drew a number of inspiring

and amusing suggestions,

he said.

The winner would receive $50

credit at Christchurch City Libraries.

The city council earmarked

$10 million for the facility in the

2009-2019 Long Term Plan, and

the Sumner Redcliffs Historical

Society is contributing $50,000

for the construction of the museum.

Name suggestions can be made

online at www.yourvoice.ccc.

govt.nz/sumnercentre or at drop

boxes at Sumner School, The

Hub Sumner, Linwood Library

and South Library.

Health

Tips

Protect yourself for up to 3 months from

cold & flu

It’s coming into the time of year to be thinking about prevention of

colds & flu. Buccaline is an oral antibacterial prophylaxis for the

prevention of secondary bacterial infections associated with cold

and flu. Buccaline provides active immunisation against bacterial

colds. Illnesses of the upper respiratory are often caused by bacterial

infections. Viral and influenza-like illnesses are frequently made worse

by an additional bacterial infections and take longer to recover from.

Immunology investigations show that Buccaline significantly improves

resistance to colds and flu. Protection becomes effective after taking

the last set of tablets. To maintain effectiveness as well as taking

Buccaline at the beginning of the cold season take it again in the

middle of the cold season. Tablets should be swallowed whole with

some liquid one-hour before breakfast or lunch.

LYTTELTON TUNNEL NEWS

SOUTH ISLAND’S ECONOMIC LIFELINE

Since the February 2011 earthquake, Lyttelton

Tunnel has become even more of an economic

lifeline for Canterbury and the South Island. It is

critical for getting fuel supplies to Christchurch

and beyond and for exporters to get their

product to markets.

The long-term closure of Evans Pass because of

rockfall means the tunnel will remain the only

viable access route for freight vehicles to get to

the Lyttelton Port of Christchurch until late 2017/

early 2018 when it is expected Evans Pass will

re-open.

While Dyers Pass Road and Gebbies Pass can

be used by some heavy vehicles, these are not

preferred routes because of the greater safety

issues relating to steep grades and narrow,

windy roads.

The additional freight vehicles through

the tunnel, which includes those carrying

demolition rubble to the Port for its reclamation

programme, are contributing to the sometimes

general lack of cleanliness of the tunnel, i.e.

grime on the white tiles.

Up to eight tonnes of dirt and dust can be

removed from the tunnel every month. This

compares with 235kg a month before the

earthquakes, sweeping of the tunnel having

increased from once a month to three times a

week.

Cleaning of the tunnel often came second in

the early days following the earthquakes, with

the tunnel being kept open for freight vehicles,

particularly dangerous goods, which require the

tunnel to be closed to all other traffic, including

the cleaning machines, for periods of up to

10 minutes. Dangerous goods vehicles include

tankers carrying petrol, gas and other highly

flammable goods.

On average, 600 tankers travel through the

tunnel each month and up to 30 on some nights.

This means the tunnel can be closed for several

hours a day as the tankers arrive at varying

times, depending on schedules, the number of

closures differing each hour. These closures,

however, are at night, from 6.30pm to 7am.

The NZ Transport Agency works hard to

balance the needs of everyone who requires

access through the tunnel, keeping delays to a

minimum but always being mindful of the need

to undertake regular maintenance to protect the

51-year-old structure.

Lyttelton Tunnel bylaw

The NZ Transport Agency is bringing in a revised bylaw to better manage Lyttelton Tunnel

and ensure the safety of all users.

The biggest change under the revised bylaw will be mandatory covering of truck and

trailers carrying bulk goods through the tunnel. This is a result of dust and dirt from these

vehicles which has become both a safety and maintenance issue.

While the Land Transport Act requires all vehicles secure their loads, the new bylaw

specifies that all loose bulk loads must be covered in a way that minimises dirt and

material escaping.

The area over which the bylaw can be enforced is also being extended to cover State

Highway 74 from the intersection of Norwich Quay and Oxford Street, in Lyttelton, to the

old layover bay, 200 metres north, of the Bridle Path Road on-ramp on the Heathcote side.

For safety, the revised bylaw reconfirms that dangerous goods and over dimension

vehicles will not be allowed to use the tunnel. This will be enforced once Evans Pass reopens

late 2017/early 2018.

Under the revised bylaw, the maximum height and width limits for the tunnel will be:

• Any vehicle more than 2.6m wide needs permission to enter the tunnel

• No vehicles more than 4.27m in height can use the tunnel.

The new bylaw will come into effect 28 days after it is advertised in the NZ Gazette,

which is likely to be next month.

LYTTELTON TUNNEL NEWS

Restoring access

via Evans Pass

Work is underway to get earthquake-damaged Evans

Pass re-opened by late 2017/early 2018. This will enable

dangerous goods and over dimensional vehicles to

be re-routed via Evans Pass, reducing the number of

closures of Lyttelton Tunnel.

Work began repairing the road and retaining walls and

reducing the risk to road users of geotechnical hazards

at the end of last year and is progressing well.

This work, being undertaken by the Christchurch City

Council, will cost $40 to $60 million. The NZ Transport

Agency is funding 83 per cent of the cost, recognising

the importance of Sumner Road/Evans Pass as a lifeline

route and in getting freight to the Port of Lyttelton.

Work underway includes scaling to remove loose

surface materials; blasting to remove boulders and

outcrops; and earthworks including the engineered

removal of soil and rock to reshape the land. Bunds may

also be required to contain any future rock fall.

Keep up-to-date with this work by signing up for the

Christchurch City Council’s newsletter by emailing:

slcorridor@ccc.govt.nz

MAINTENANCE PROGRAMME

Lyttelton Tunnel celebrated its 50th birthday in 2014 and cosmetically the tunnel is

beginning to show its age.

Following the earthquakes, regular cleaning of the tunnel came second to keeping the

road open in the early days, in particular to provide access for freight vehicles to the

Port of Lyttelton.

In the last two years, the NZ Transport Agency has reinstated its regular cleaning

programme. To lessen the disruption for everyone, this is now going to be mainly on

Thursday nights from 9pm to 2am. That’s so everyone knows when there are likely to

be delays and to plan their journeys. What will impact on this timing, will be when bulk

ships are in Port and unload their cargo around the clock.

During the next couple of months, we will also be replacing the cat’s eye lights in the

centre of the road. This will be done at night and reduce the tunnel to single lane.

Vehicles will be escorted through during this time and there could be delays. These

delays will be advertised.

Towards the end of this year, the Transport Agency is looking to begin installing a

deluge system which will activate sprinklers in the tunnel in the event of a fire. This

work could result in the need for some lengthy closures but it is critical to improve

safety within the tunnel. The Transport Agency is currently working through ways to

minimise closures and keep everyone moving during this time.

HOW DO YOU KEEP INFORMED?

Closures of Lyttelton Tunnel can be frustrating for all users.

The NZ Transport Agency does work to minimise the disruption

and make it easier for everyone to get to where they need to

go on time.

Regular planned maintenance work is carried out throughout

the week, usually on a Thursday night from 9pm to 2am when

access is single-lane and vehicles are escorted through; other

closures are limited to 10 minutes for dangerous goods vehicles

to travel through the tunnel.

Time to check your

personal flotation device

BY GARY MANCH, NAVIGA-

TIONAL SAFETY OFFICER,

LYTTELTON

I thought our boating season had

come to an end, but the long fine

weather spell continues.

It’s great to see everyone out

there making the most of the fantastic

weather, long may it continue.

But like most things, all

good things come to an end, and

I guess old man winter wants his

bite of the cherry.

One thing I want to mention is

personal flotation devices or life

jackets as they are commonly referred

to.

Many of us out there have the

inflatable types, some are selfinflating.

In our office our PFDs

are sent away every year to be

checked and made sure they

are safe. Then each time we put

them on we have a visible check

for safety first.

How many of you out there

have had your PFD checked by

an expert, or at least completed a

self-check yourself?

Here are some tips:

Check the gas cylinder for corrosion.

If it has corrosion, return

the jacket to your local boat store

and ask them to replace the gas

cylinder.

Make sure the cylinder is

screwed in firmly, this should be

Pirate’s Corner

checked every time you use the

PFD.

Check the outer cover for

holes, signs of wear or deterioration.

If the PFD is in this state,

chuck it out and get a new one.

Orally inflate the bladder and

leave it inflated for 24 hours. If

the bladder deflates, get an authorised

repair person at your local

boat shop to repair or replace.

In relation to wearing inflatable

PFDs, here is some further

advice:

Adult inflatables should never

be worn by children 12 years old

or less.

Always use a crotch strap. This

prevents the PFD slipping over

your head if you fall in the water.

You don’t grow into a life

jacket, they should fit comfortably.

No more than three fingers

should be able to be placed under

shoulder straps, and the straps

should be firmly fastened.

Lift you or the child’s

arms above the head, lift the

shoulders of the jacket. If it

raises above the chin the jacket

is too large.

Many years ago the helmet

manufacturer Bell had a saying,

“if you have a $10 head wear a

$10 helmet.”

This saying can be applied to

life jackets and PFDs as well.

Always buy safety standard approved

PFD or life jacket fit for

purpose, and maintain the piece

of equipment to the manufacturers

standard and advice given

above.

You never know, it may come

in really handy. Oh and I forgot,

it won’t save you from drowning

if it’s still in the boat under the

bow, think about that as well.

This is my last Pirates Corner

for a few weeks as I am taking

a well-earned (well some would

disagree) break, take care.

hopefully that will help with the

rebuild.

A new community centre

opened in Aranui last week – the

Aranui Wainoni Community

Centre will serve a great need

in that area. Christchurch Lions

used earthquake donations to

help fund this project to the tune

of $45,0000. Where there is a

need there are Lions is a most

appropriate motto.

On the local Lyttelton scene

the community van used by

Community House and the

Youth Centre died and could not

be revived at the beginning of

this year.

This van is used not just by

the youth for camps, outings and

sporting activities but also by

Community House to take the

elderly shopping, to take them to

medical appointments and hospital

visits, delivery of meals to

housebound to name just a few.

The walking group also used

the van to access areas around

Christchurch. So you can see it

is an essential part of the community.

Community House is

organising a fundraiser to buy

a new or good, secondhand 10

to 12 seater van. At the Festival

of Lights in Lyttelton on June

24 the Youth Centre, Rotary and

Lions will be holding a bucket

drop and we ask for a gold coin

donation. Local businesses are

promising help.

We intend to make this a

project for the community by

the community. So Lyttelton do

come on board. If you can offer

any support at all please phone

Christine Wilson at Community

House on 328 7427 or 741 1427.

Keep busy.

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON: Greg and Sam Boss

suit up to brave the waves.

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

When some sports teams

were warm inside after their

weekend’s matches were called

off, the Sumner Longboarders

braved the bitter wind and rain to

run a competition.

The club organised an event

on Sunday morning in the hopes

that it would be a clear, warm

day with a good swell for surfing.

But when the keen surfers

gathered, they were met with a

“howling” wind and constant

rain on a day that registered just

11 deg C as its high.

Sumner Longboarders

president Shane Austin said

there was a great turnout for the

FIGHTING THE COLD: Nick Begg placed fourth

in the competition.

Surfers brave weather

event, in spite of the “atrocious”

weather.

“Even with the howling

southerlies and snow on the

mountains we had 14 people turn

up, which was amazing. So we

had about six heats before the

finals,” he said.

The brave surfers took to the

waters of Scarborough for the

monthly competition, which was

organised by the club.

Mr Austin said the surfers

could deal with the driving

rain, the “real killer” was the

wind.

“To tell you the truth the conditions

were really good. The

water is fresh but the wind was

the real killer,” he said.

First place went to club captain

Luke O’Neill, then Mark Robberds,

Russell ‘Rusty’ Johns,

and Nick Begg rounded out the

top four.

Mr Austin said everyone enjoyed

themselves, in spite of the

weather, and the barbecue at the

end of the competition was well

worth the wait.

“Overall it was really good,

and the barbecue went well. The

judges of the competition were

club members, as well. We figure

if you’re not competing, you’re

judging,” he said.

Mr Austin said the club is

looking forward to the next

event in Kaikoura on June 19.

The “classic one wave” competition

against Kaikoura Surf Lifesaving

Club.

Taking gourmet duck to the next level

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Hunters were not the only ones

who had been looking forward

to duck shooting season.

Chefs from an Akaroa and

three Christchurch restaurants

have been working to come up

with signature duck dishes to

perfectly compliment the 2013

Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir.

It is part of the sixth Cloudy

Bay Pinot and Duck Tasting

Trail, which launched in

Christchurch on May 6 to tie

in with the beginning of duck

hunting season.

The specialist dishes will be

served until the end of May.

Chefs from Empire and

Baretta, on St Asaph St,

Merivale’s JDV and The Little

Bistro in Akaroa, have each

experimented and come up with

dishes to perfectly compliment

the pinot noir.

Baretta will serve an entrée

of confit duck leg, herb spatzle,

duck liver parfait, compressed

pear, orange and cress for $33.

Empire will have the option of

saikyo miso duck breast, candied

kumara, braised daikon, goji

berries and yuzu pinot sauce for

$35.

The Little Bistro has gone for

a French style dish of braised

duck leg crepes, anise poached

blueberries, and parfait jus for

$30, while JDV will serve confit

duck leg, quince, celeriac, white

bean cassoulet and orange jus for

$55.

All dishes have a glass of 2013

Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir included

in the price. Restaurants from

across the country are taking

part in this year’s trail.

Cloudy Bay senior brand

manager Ali Campbell the idea

was all about eating seasonally

which paired well with the

beginning of duck hunting

season.

The trail allowed people to

go along to any of the four

Christchurch restaurants to

try duck, which they may not

have tried before, and the wine

together, she said.

Cloudy Bay Estate director

Ian Morden said the grapes

ON OFFER: Empire head chef Tadayuki Kuroiwa plating up the confit duck leg, herb spatzle, duck liver parfait, compressed pear, orange and

cress, which will be served at Baretta with Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir.

PHOTOS: JOSEPH JOHNSON

for the pinot noir were grown

in the Southern Valleys in

Marlborough, in clay based soil,

and paired perfectly with duck.

“With meat as gamey as duck,

it is important to have a wine

that has a soft touch of acid to

cut through the richness and

strong enough flavours that do

not get lost in its earthy gusto.”

•As part of the trail, people

are invited to share their

experience on Facebook to be

in to win a restaurant voucher

to the value of $200 for any

participating restaurant in

their region. They can upload

a photo of their favourite duck

dish to Facebook and tag it

with #pinotandducknz and

#cloudybaynz to go in the draw.

TASTY: Chefs Shawn Cassidy and Tadayuki Kuroiwa serve up the

confit duck dish.

PERFECT MATCH: Empire will be serving up a saikyo miso duck

breast dish (left), matched with a glass of Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir

throughout May.

DEALER FINANCE LIMITED

Dealer Finance Limited and the Commerce Commission have entered into a settlement agreement relating to

overcharged interest on loans. This resulted from Dealer Finance not crediting part repayments made by borrowers

against the unpaid balance of the loan as soon as practicable, and as a consequence, overcharging interest to the

borrower.

If you purchased a vehicle through one of the car dealers listed below between April 2005 and April 2015, which was

financed through Dealer Finance, you may be entitled to a refund of any overcharged interest, together with a 5%

uplift payment.

Dealer Finance has recently sent notification to all affected clients by mail. If you have not received this notification

please contact Dealer Finance by email on enquiries@dfl.co.nz to find out whether you are entitled to a refund.

Please include your full name, current and previous addresses, and if known, the car dealer you purchased your car

through and the vehicle registration number.

PLEASE NOTE - NO contact is required from you:

• if you still have a current open loan(s) with Dealer Finance; or

• if you have previously repaid a loan(s) with Dealer Finance (taken out between above dates) but have a current

loan(s) with Dealer Finance,

as we will be crediting your open loan or we have made or are in the process of making appropriate internal

adjustments.

A copy of the settlement agreement can be found on www.comcom.govt.nz
