No plans to rebuild units

• By Bridget Rutherford

REDCLIFFS residents fear social

housing units on a $1 million

piece of land overlooking the

estuary will never be rebuilt.

The city council has begun

demolishing blocks A and B of

Avonheath Courts, Beachville

Rd, because they suffered damage

in the September 2010 and

February 2011 quakes.

The C block, nearest Beachville

Rd, will be repaired and

strengthened, although one

badly damaged unit is being

demolished.

Redcliffs Residents’ Association

says the units should

have been repaired rather than

demolished, but the city council

says it was not cost-effective to

do so.

The city council-owned site

has a land value of $1,060,000.

Residents’ association acting

chairman Chris Doudney said

it was “sad” the city council had

no current plans to rebuild on

the site.

Pensioner units on Raekura

Tce were lost due to the risk of

rockfall following the quakes,

and Etheridge Court on Main

Rd was being sold, he said.

“We lost a lot of pensioner

housing in Redcliffs because of

the earthquakes. Redcliffs would

really like to see its social housing

balance restored.”

Chris Doudney says the Avonheath Courts units should not be

demolished.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

He said the units were on a

prime site, and could have been

repaired to a usable standard

so they could be lived in while

a permanent rebuild could be

planned.

But city council head of housing

Carolyn Gallagher said the

repair costs were “significantly

higher” than new-build costs, but

would not say what they were.

“Future use of the site is yet to

be determined by the council,”

she said.

The city council wanted to

close all the units following the

quakes, but residents fought for

some of them to remain open,

because tenants would have

nowhere to go.

Eleven of the 17 units at the

complex were later vacated in

2013. Both blocks are expected to

be demolished by August, while

C block’s remaining seven units

would be repaired to 67 per cent

of the new building standard.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think blocks A and B of

Avonheath Courts should be

demolished? Does Redcliffs

need more social housing?

MOVING MISHAPS AT ECAN OFFICE

Moving can be a pain – but at least two

Environment Canterbury staff members

felt it more than most when the regional

council shifted into its new Tuam St

offices in April.

Within the first two weeks, one

person walked into the glass surround

of the revolving door on the ground

level, receiving a bruised temple

and a headache.

NEWS 17

A second person walked into the glass

balustrade on the ground floor stairs

bruising their upper arm. Both were put

on light duties for two days.

ECan spokeswoman Katherine

Trought said moving 406 staff into a new

office building was a little like moving

into a new house, “where you bump

into things until you work out how to

navigate your way around.”

Lake quality improves

• By Bridget Rutherford

LAKE FORSYTH’S condition

has improved “remarkably”

with the recent rainfall after

recurring toxic algal blooms

flared up, killing animals.

Banks Peninsula Water Zone

Committee chairman Steve

Lowndes said the rainfall had

had a positive impact on the

lake’s water quality and condition.

“The water in the lake has

improved remarkably since the

rain and bad weather.

“It breaks up the algal bloom

and the wind has been blowing

left, right and centre.”

Last week, from Monday

night to Wednesday morning

the Cooptown weather station

near Little River recorded about

65ml of rain.

Mr Lowndes lives next to the

lake, which runs from Birdlings

Flat towards Little River.

The lake’s quality came under

fire in April when the algal

bloom flared up after a run of

dry weather.

The water was green with

toxic slime, and it was reported

30 sheep had died after drinking

it.

Environment Canterbury

AT ITS FINEST: Environment Canterbury expects to see Lake

Forsyth’s condition improve further in the coming weeks, so

its health warning can be lifted.

science water manager Tim

Davie said the latest results from

sampling were from May 24.

“The concentrations of nodularia

(the toxic cyanobacteria) as

of May 24 have declined but are

still high enough to warrant a

health warning,” he said.

“We expect these to decline

significantly in the next two

weeks given the cold weather

and significant rain but at

present we have advised Canterbury

District Health Board of

the need for a continued health

warning.”

Wairewa Runanga and the

city council were granted a consent

in March to continue using

the pilot opening from the lake

to the sea for 35 years.

Lake Forsyth, or Wairewa, is

the only customary lake in the

South Island.

Ngai Tahu has the customary

title over it, meaning only iwi

members can fish for eel from

the lake.

In Brief

ACTION ON INTERSECTION

A city council committee has

asked staff to make the St

Andrews Hill and Bridle Path

Rds intersection a priority.

The infrastructure, Transport

and Environment Committee

asked city council staff last

week to investigate, as a priority,

options to improve the usability

and safety of the intersection,

particularly the turning from

St Andrews Hill Rd. Staff will

report back to the committee

in six to eight weeks. It comes

after the Hagley-Ferrymead

Community Board called for

changes after a report criticised

its lay-out and a cyclist was

knocked off his bike there last

month. Residents are urged to

report any accidents to the city

council on 941 8999.

SPEED LIMIT CHANGES

The speed limit on part of Mt

Pleasant Rd could be lowered

from 70km/h to 50km/h as

part of a review of speed limits

across the city. The proposed

new limit would begin 300m

east of Moncks Spur Rd to

50m south of Upper Major

Hornbrook Rd. The city council

is proposing the changes to 31

streets across the city, including

two in the central city, because

they are new growth areas.

People can have their say on the

plan until June 21 on the city

council website.

CAFES SMOKE-FREE

Café Metro Ferrymead, Joe’s

Garage Sumner and Coffee Culture

Sumner are among 18 cafes

that will make their outdoor

dining areas smoke-free this

summer. The businesses have

agreed to be part of the Cancer

Society and Canterbury District

Health Board’s Fresh Air

Project which gets businesses

in the hospitality sector to trial

smoke-free outdoor dining for a

six month period. The trial will

begin on November 1. Compliance

is voluntary and not

enforced by the city council.

BIRDLINGS FLAT CENTRE

The Akaroa-Wairewa Community

Board will decide today

whether to grant a deed of lease

to the Little River Wairewa

Community Trust for the new

Birdlings Flat Community Centre.

The new centre, which will

be built next to the playground

on Poranui Beach Rd, will be

Birdlings Flat’s first community

facility. The term of lease, if

approved today, will be for 33

years, as a peppercorn rental.

Ohinetahi

tracks open

ALL OF Ohinetahi Reserve’s

walking tracks are now open

after being closed since the

earthquakes.

The 150 ha reserve above

Governors Bay is owned by the

Summit Road Society.

Following the February 2011

earthquake, the tracks had to be

closed until a geotechnical study

had been carried out to assess the

risk of rockfall.

A lot of the tracks were

reopened late last year, but the

remainder of the tracks are now

ready for use.

A large, car-sized rock was

removed from a bluff overlooking

Faulkners Track, so the track

could be reopened.

The reserve was bought by the

society in the early 1990s from

the O’Farrell estate, before being

turned into a reserve.

Since then it has been managed

by a team of volunteers, who

built and maintained a network

of tracks.

The main access to the reserve

is off Ernest Adams Drive and

Bay View Heights in Governors

Bay.

Access is also available from

Summit Rd, south of the Sign of

the Takahe.

Fantastic Home Show returns

THERE IS less than a month to

go until the doors open on the

The Star Home & Leisure Show.

More than 12,000 people

visited the show last year, which

runs over Friday, Saturday and

Sunday, July 1 to 3.

The show features the latest

trends and technology for home

building or renovation, as well

as special deals on everything

from spa pools to campervans.

You can talk directly with the

experts there to get advice or

tips, or take the opportunity to

try new products or technology.

There will also be plenty of

prizes on offer, including a

$25,000 central heating system,

thanks to Central Heating NZ.

•The show will be held at

Horncastle Arena from

July 1-3 from 10am to 5pm.

For more information, visit

www.starhomeshow.co.nz

SHOW

HAVING A remote control

home is no longer the stuff of

science fiction.

If you have the technology,

you can now turn your heating

on while you’re on your way

home, set a crock-pot to start

your dinner cooking, and check

up instantly on your home if a

security or fire alarm goes off to

see if it’s a danger or just a false

alarm.

Although the technology has

existed for several years, it has

been expensive and complicated

to install.

Startup company Morepork’s

goal is to make the technology

accessible to anyone.

Chief executive Gemma

Croombs said its systems could

be installed simply yourself,

with simple plug in cameras

and control panels and wireless

alarms and sensors.

“People have the perception

IN YOUR HAND: Chief executive Gemma Croombs using

the Morepork app, which allows you to remotely control

your security system and home automation technology. ​

you can only have them if

you’re building and you can put

cable all through your home,

but it doesn’t have to be like that

anymore.”

The company, which was

backed by Spark, launched in

August last year, but she said

the technology was already

growing.

“One of the things we’re testing

at the moment is a smart

door bell which sets up voice

call, so if someone’s there to

drop off a package you can say

just drop off, don’t leave me to

pick it up from the depot on my

weekend. Or if you have a smart

lock, you can just remotely open

the door and let them in.”

As new technology was developed,

she said it could be added

on to the same system.

She plans to be at The Star

Home & Leisure Show with her

team, with several systems set

up for people to play with there,

and special deals on offer.

Do you have a leaky home?

The Financial Assistance Package, which

helps people with a contribution to repair

leaky homes, is closing to new claims on

23 July 2016.

To give time for an assessment to be

undertaken, applications should be with

MBIE by 27 June 2016.

Go to building.govt.nz/FAP for

more information or to apply for

financial assistance.

Queen honours locals

HISTORY: Charles Crofts was a negotiator for Ngai Tahu in the deed of settlement. He is

pictured here sharing a hongi with minister in charge of Treaty of Waitangi negotiations Doug

Graham, after the settlement was signed. ​

A SUMNER sports broadcaster

and a man who led Ngai Tahu

through the critical stages of the

deed of settlement have both

been recognised in the Queen’s

Birthday Honours list.

Lesley Murdoch and Charles

Crofts were both made officers

of the New Zealand Order of

Merit on Monday. They were

among 13 Cantabrians to be

named.

Mrs Murdoch was recognised

for services to sport.

She has been a sports broadcaster

for more than three

decades, after representing New

Zealand in hockey and cricket.

She is a netball and hockey

commentator and hosts a

weekly Saturday morning sports

talk-back show for Newstalk ZB.

Mrs Murdoch served on the

Board of New Zealand Cricket,

a term on the Board of New

Zealand Hockey, and is currently

on the Netball New Zealand

Board, with a focus on sport in

Canterbury post-quake.

She was also a member of the

committee which undertook a

sweeping review of New Zealand

Cricket in 1995.

Mr Crofts was recognised for

services to Maori.

He is currently chairman of

Koukourarata Rūnanga, Port

Levy, and director of Koukourarata

Development Company.

Mr Crofts led Ngai Tahu

through the critical stages of the

Ngai Tahu Deed of Settlement

between 1993 and 1996.

He was mandated by Te

Runanga o Ngai Tahu to manage

the negotiations process,

and personally charged with

maintaining tribal cohesion.

The Ngāi Tahu Settlement Act

was signed in 1998.

BUS FARE HIKE DROPPED

Bus fares, including Diamond

Harbour Ferry, will only increase

by 2.5 per cent, rather than

the originally proposed 10 per

cent. Environment Canterbury

announced last week that it had

taken on board the communities’

feedback about the proposed 10

per cent rise in its draft annual

plan. Detail on the timing and

exact fares for bus users will

be released before the fare rises

come into effect in July.

INTERSECTION FEEDBACK

Diamond Harbour residents have

until June 16 to have their say on

plans to make safety improvements

to the Marine Drive and

Ranui Crescent east intersection.

The city council wants to

install a no right turning sign

from Marine Drive onto Ranui

Crescent. A right turn onto Ranui

Crescent will be maintained via

the Marine Drive, Ranui Crescent

west intersection. It comes after

residents were concerned about

the lack of visibility at the intersection.

Submissions can be made

on the city council website.

REDCLIFFS DECISION DUE

Education Minister Hekia Parata

is expected to make her final

decision on whether to close

Redcliffs School this month. Representatives

from the school met

with Minister Parata in Christchurch

last month to go over the

key points and messages in the

school’s submission. Minster

Parata told the representatives she

would deliver a decision in June.

ENERGY HELP EXTENDED

A community project has just

reached its three-year target

of improving 250 homes, six

months ahead of schedule. The

Repair Well project, funded by

New Zealand Red Cross and

implemented by Community

Energy Action Charitable Trust

installs extra energy efficiency

measures during earthquake

repairs for vulnerable homeowners.

As CEA has completed the

project ahead of time and under

budget, the organisation is able to

help households needing earthquake

repairs until December.

Latest Budget missed

the big issues

Port Hills

Labour MP

Ruth Dyson

says the

Government’s

Budget is

disappointing

Every year the Government

presents a Budget – the allocation

of funding to all Government

department and agencies.

This signals the priorities that

the Government thinks need addressing

over the coming years.

It shows the surplus or deficit

the Government is running and

gives economic forecasts.

There is always a clamber prior

to the Budget, with different

groups calling for different priorities

– one of the many advantages

of living in a democracy

with freedom of the press. And

we know that not all those calls

can be met.

But even with that caveat, I

think this Budget has been a

big disappointment. There are

some burning issues that need a

bucket of water, and they barely

rated a trickle.

There is no commitment to

fix the housing crisis. Selling

our state houses to community

providers does not increase the

social housing available, and that

increase is desperately needed.

Canterbury health funding

continues to fall behind the level

of funding other parts of the

country get – and undoubtedly

we have an increased need with

post-quake stress issues still

evident.

All schools have had their

operational grant funding level

frozen. This is deeply distressing;

particularly for those schools

which had their decile level

increased in the recent review

and have lost thousands of dollars

because of this already. With

a frozen fund, they will just fall

behind every year and I know

that there is no spare money in

those budgets currently.

The Budget was a bit of a hotch

potch of policies which didn’t really

give any indication of a plan

to make New Zealand fairer or

stronger. The National Government

failed to invest so that the

opportunities to buy a house, get

a job and build a future would be

available to everyone.

That’s the sort of society New

Zealand has always prided itself

on being and with the right

investment in the Budget, it’s the

sort of society New Zealand can

become once again.

Bay Harbour News asked its

readers what changes they

would like made to the St

Andrews Hill and Bridle Path

Rds intersection:

Kathy Kerr:

I live in Sumner and work in

Lyttelton. On several occasions

I have been cut off by drivers

coming down fast off St Andrews

Hill and failing to give way at the

sign. I have been turning left into

Bridle Path Rd on a green light

at the time. At the very least, I

would like to see a ‘Stop’ sign

on St Andrews Hill Rd instead

of the ‘Give Way sign’ which

is there at the moment. Lights

would be better.

A. Edwards:

This corner is a disaster and

it is only a matter of time before

there is a really serious accident

and/or fatality. This intersection

design can only have been

completed by people who sit in

a room without windows and

never go outside. Yes, lights

would assist. But as well they

need to lose the triangular

island shown at the right of

your photo. If it is actually

necessary to have traffic lights

there they should be suspended

from overhead cables. The traffic

light poles on this island are a

hazard in themselves. Removing

the island would allow another

lane to be formed for the traffic

flowing along Bridle Path Rd, i.e

travelling towards the estuary. So

that would provide two left turning

lanes for both traffic flows, i.e

Bridle Path and St Andrews Hill

Rds, which should allow each

phase to clear without backing

up.

Michael Chapman:

Traffic signals at the base of St

Andrews Hill Rd would be a big

improvement, but only if there

is proper synchronisation with

the lights at Ferry Rd and Bridle

Path Rd. That synchronisation

needs to ensure that traffic will

flow in a smooth and coherent

manner through the light, and

that blockages will not occur.

Your Local Views

Readers respond to Richard

Suggate’s Soap Box column

about the Diamond Harbour

Ferry:

Erica Henderson:

Re: your request for feedback

on whether the Diamond Harbour

Ferry links well with the

bus timetable.

I regularly use the ferry to

travel to and from work. It works

fine in the mornings, but the

return journey home is a bit hit

and miss. I have regularly had

to sprint to the ferry and on a

couple of occasions have missed

it completely – sometimes its an

hour until the next one.

I always ask the driver to

radio through to the ferry, some

do and some don’t. Having said

that, on one occasion recently,

the bus driver radioed through

several times but the ferry pilot

didn’t respond. On that occasion

it was the passengers on the ferry

that alerted the pilot that there

were passengers sprinting from

the bus.

I feel the problem has several

angles:

• Traffic in the evenings means

the buses are always running up

to 10min late when leaving the

exchange. Sometimes they make

the time up, but not always.

• The ferry and the bus services

see themselves as two separate

services, rather than one service

being offered by two companies.

Therefore neither company takes

responsibility for providing a

seamless service for its Diamond

Harbour commuters. It would

be a simple matter for both ferry

pilot and bus driver to always call

ahead to check if there are passengers

for the ferry.

• The time the journey takes

– if I took my car to work I

could be there and at my desk in

45min. With the bus, it is over an

hour when I include the time to

drive to the ferry from Charteris

Bay. Added to that the lack of

flexibility to do things after work

and the unreliability of the ferry

connection. If there was an express

bus during peak periods, it

would make the commute much

more attractive.

• Bus route out of the tunnel

– if the bus went straight to the

ferry then dropped off Lyttelton

passengers, rather than doing the

Lyttelton circuit first, it would

save several minutes – vital when

trying to make those connections.

Just a few thoughts to ponder –

I really enjoy taking the ferry and

would really love a solution to

this ongoing problem. It doesn’t

seem that hard

Jane Wade:

As a commuter a few months

post-knee surgery (and so less

mobile than most of the commuters)

using the Diamond Harbour

Ferry/Metro Bus service to travel

to work most weekdays I have

the following observations: the

disability-friendly route between

ferry and bus is longer than

the route taken by able-bodied

travellers as a consequence when

walking from the ferry to the bus

stop, I am well behind the other

commuters walking to the bus

stop, even though I am walking

my fastest.

This is stressful as there is

the potential for me to miss my

connecting bus. Returning from

town on the bus to catch the ferry

on two recent occasions when the

bus has been running late I have

asked the bus driver to radio the

ferry to advise there are bus passengers

coming. The bus drivers

radio, with no response from the

ferry. On both occasions when

asked, the ferry skippers had not

heard the bus driver’s call. As the

ferry skippers cannot now see the

bus letting off passengers, I rely

on the co-ordination between

the bus and the ferry in order to

catch the ferry the bus is timed

to meet. Equally when the ferry

skipper tries to radio the bus, I

find that the bus driver has not

heard the call.

Governors Bay residents are

calling for a lower speed

limit and more signage to

try and help curb boy racer

problems in the area.

Roseanna Smith:

My husband and I live in Cass

Bay and we are frequently woken

at all hours of the night by loud

car noise from boy racers. They

are going at a tremendous speed

around the corners.

We fear that one day they will

go over the hill. Not only could

they kill or injure themselves, but

they could injury others with cars

smashing into houses. I seriously

doubt whether lower speed limits

or more signage will have any

deterrent effect on these people.

They have no regard for speed

limits whatsoever. What is

needed is speed cameras and

increased police presence.

Postal and banking

services now

offered in Ferrymead

PostShop manager Carrie, left, and her assistants Kim and Sharmaine

Take Note Ferrymead have a full range of NZ Post services, plus books, stationery, cards and so much more.

Residents from Woolston through

to Sumner now have the benefit of

local NZ Post and Kiwibank services

seven days a week, thanks to Take

Note in Ferrymead.

The popular book and stationery store

has taken on the franchise for the postal and

banking services, with the new franchise

operation, Take Note Ferrymead PostShop and

Kiwibank, open for business as of May 19.

“Being open seven days a week means we’ll be

available when people need us,” says PostShop

manager Carrie.

“By opening at the weekend we’re catering

to working people who can’t get to the bank or

Post Office during the week.”

Carrie brings 11 years’ experience managing

PostShops to her new Ferrymead role, while

her two assistants, Kim and Sharmaine, are also

experienced PostShop staff.

Take Note owners Barry and Kerry moved

their business from neighbouring premises

into the former Video Ezy site several months

ago in preparation for setting up the NZ Post

and Kiwibank franchise, as they were keen to

provide an even wider range of services for their

customers.

PostShop facilities include bill paying for telco

companies, power companies and The Press,

vehicle registration and diesel miles. Kiwibank

customers can set up bank accounts, automatic

bill payments and deposit and withdraw cash,

while those wanting to enquire about obtaining

a Kiwibank mortgage can have an appointment

arranged with a mobile mortgage manager at a

time to suit.

Since establishing Take Note Ferrymead

(formerly Paper Plus Ferrymead) 14 years ago,

Barry and Kerry have built up a strong and loyal

customer base from across the Bay Harbour

News readership area by offering friendly

service and an extensive selection of books,

magazines, stationery, toys, gifts, greeting cards

and wrapping paper.

The wide range of book titles includes travel

books, recipe books, novels and children’s

books. Home and office stationery supplies

include everything from printing paper and

ink cartridges to notepads and exercise books,

filing systems and paper clips.

Customers can browse through an

attractive range of gift items, including locally

manufactured items, or alternatively there are

gift cards and Prezzy Cards in a range of values.

Ferrymead is one of the city’s fastest-growing

retail and business areas, and Take Note

Ferrymead PostShop and Kiwibank is ideally

located among a mix of other business outlets

including hardware, supermarket, cafes and

professional services.

There is extensive off-street parking available

at the front and rear of the store and a bus stop

close by on Ferry Road.

Opening hours are Monday to Friday,

8.30am to 5.30pm, Saturday 9am to 5.30pm

and Sunday 10am to 5pm.

Our People

Kim Morton

Lawyer’s new ambition: to help the

Otautahi Creative

Spaces Trust manager

Kim Morton talks to

Fraser Walker-Pearce

about reducing social

isolation through art,

training as a lawyer and

her favourite place in

the city

Kim, tell me a bit about

what you do for the Otautahi

Creative Spaces Trust.

I guess I lead the programme

and we run art programmes. At

the moment we run at Phillipstown

and Aranui Libraries but

we are looking to expand across

the city into other community

hubs. Our mission is using art to

boost people’s wellbeing. We’re

especially looking to work with

people that have experienced

mental illness, earthquake

trauma and social isolation. We

provide opportunities for people

to connect with their community

as well.

How long has it been running?

It’s been going for just over a

year now, but we had a low profile

for our first six months. But

since the start of the year we’ve

had quite a surge of interest in

our programmes. We’re very

excited because it means we need

to expand them now, and we’re

looking for support to do that.

Where is the programme

based?

The base is Phillipstown

Community Hub, in the old Phillipstown

School, which closed at

the end of 2014. We’re here along

with a whole lot of other fantastic

EXCITED:

Trust, and

community initiatives. Aranui

also presents a great opportunity

because the team there is really

passionate about serving their

community. We know libraries are

the living room of communities

and people go there because they

feel welcome and it’s a free space.

And the feedback you’ve

received has been positive?

The feedback has been fantastic.

What people love is that it’s participant

driven, so artists choose

the art forms they’re interested

in, and they do that. The environment

they’re in is without any

pressure to produce, just heaps of

encouragement. People have said

it’s a really inspiring environment

to be in. It’s not a structured class

as such, anyone could be working

on anything – like sculptures,

printmaking, and calligraphy.

Sometimes the participants will

need encouragement and suggestions,

but most people settle

in to what they want to be doing.

If someone’s stuck we help them

though.

Has the programme been successful

for the artists?

Some people have come in and

worked in this space, and they’ve

had work feature in national

exhibitions. We’ve had three

people gain scholarships through

The Learning Connexion but

also people are feeling like they

have a sense of belonging to

something creative and belonging

to a new community. They’ve

said they’ve made friends. And

from that they’re more engaged

in their community.

Has this project been set up

by the city council, or independently?

It’s an independent community

charitable trust. We have

had great support from Creative

New Zealand, the city council

and the Rata Foundation. Not

only that but we are finding that

we are being given a lot of support

in terms of art materials,

which is a fabulous endorsement

for the trust.

How full are your classes?

Funny you should say that actually,

we have a waiting list for

the Phillipstown groups. There’s

currently a lot of work being

done looking at whether a

community through teaching art

community hub could be set

up in the closed Central New

Brighton School, and we’re hoping

we might be able to share a

space in that facility.

So how did this all come

about?

About 20 years ago I managed

a community art space in

Masterton and I’d been aware

of the gap in Christchurch for

some time, but it was only after

the earthquakes that it kind of

galvanised my energy and so I

decided to kick-start something

here. There’s a network of spaces

like this around the country, so I

had good relationships with the

people involved there and then

we did some research which was

funded by Creative New Zealand,

and it looked at the need and how

something should be set up here.

It’s not something you can just

transplant from one city to the

other, Masterton is a small town.

In post-earthquake Christchurch,

opportunities to connect with

others creatively in your local

community seemed more important.

How long have you been in

Christchurch then?

I’ve been here for 15 years,

and was in Masterton before, for

about three years, but I was born

in Auckland. I’ve lived in lots of

different places, but Christchurch

is home now.

Oh good to hear. Where are

your favourite spots?

My favourite in Christchurch is

Taylors Mistake. But in New Zealand,

it’d be the Cavalli Islands in

Northland.

Do you have any family down

here?

I have two boys, who are 17

and 13. They keep me on my toes.

They’re both at Hagley Community

College, and they’re enjoying

that. I’m not sure what they want

to do, but as long as they do what

they’re passionate about, I’m

good with that.

And where in the city are you

guys based?

We’re in Lyttelton. The kids

love it because of the hills and the

sea, and the great landscape.

That’s a bit of a trek to work

each day?

Yes that’s a point, I don’t live

in the communities I’m working

in. That means that it’s even

more important to have a strong

relationship with the community.

We’ve designed some projects

that are around the identity and

stories of Phillipstown – photography

and poetry projects that

combine with Ara Institute of

Canterbury, and local residents,

and what Phillipstown means for

them. That’s only just started.

Where did you go to

school then?

I went to school in Auckland,

to Westlake Girls High School. It

was just the one up the road from

where we lived at the time.

Did you ever have a mentor, or

a big influence that taught you

art?

Some people do have an outstanding

person in their life, but

this is hard for me. I guess mine

was Sue McBride, who was an

outstanding art teacher. I really

enjoyed art at school because of

her, so that probably did sow the

seed.

What did you do after that?

I’ve had quite a few different

aspects of my work. One is in

law, I trained for law, and didn’t

know if I’d take it further after I

studied it. I specialised in social

justice and community law. And

in a way there’s quite a connection

between those studies and

what I do now.

DISCUSSIONS:

Kim Morton and

Creative New

Zealand’s Chris

Archer discuss

the future of

the Otautahi

Creative Spaces

Trust.

And did you use the degree?

Did you have any law jobs?

Yes, I did. I guess it must have

been 20 years on and off using

it. The earthquakes made me

question what I was doing, and

I decided to put my energy into

creativity and wellbeing projects.

Life’s short, if I can make a difference,

then I should. And for me

it was around this idea of art and

creativity in Christchurch that

was the best way I could do that.

Mr Smith started work at the

Christchurch Star in 1965, as an

advertising cadet.

“It was the heyday of newspapers.

You weren’t competing for eyeballs.

I spent two and a half years there,

and it was fantastic. I still have a

lot of friends from those days, we

had a lot of fun together. We used

to have boxing tournaments in the

lunchroom,” he said.

He went on to become a director

of Allied Press, publisher

of the Otago Daily Times, and

chairman of CTV.

Although he was a major

shareholder, he said he stayed

in the background at CTV

for several years, leaving the

running of the company to

managing director Murray

Wood.

But when Mr Wood was killed

in the collapse of the building in

the February 2011 earthquake,

Mr Smith said he was suddenly

thrust into management of the

station.

He remembered the first meeting

the day after the earthquake,

sitting in a dark room without

power talking about the future

with his distraught staff.

“It would have

made more sense to take the insurance

money and close the station,

but to me that would mean

we let the staff and the victims’

families down. That to me was

the deciding factor.”

He has also played a key

role in sport over the years, helping

to develop Hagley Park, form

the University Oval Redevelopment

Trust and raise $2 million

to establish the first cricket

ground in Dunedin.

He has also sponsored and

donated to many community

groups and organisations working

in the South Island.

“My philosophy has always

been what’s good for the

province is what’s good for the

business, and what’s good for

the company is good for the

province.”

RECOGNISED: Star Media chairman Nick Smith was named an officer of the New Zealand Order

of Merit in the Queen’s Birthday Honours on Monday.

SCHOOLS

RUNNERS: The Our Lady Star of the Sea School pupils

competed at the Zones Cross Country Championships held in

Ferrymead recently. Pictured is Frances Dougherty, Macklan

Robertson, Ruby Froggatt (front) Billy McLoughlin, Flynn Greig,

Charlie Cameron and Nico Heather (rear). ​

Redcliffs School pupils

have had a busy term

so far, with Year 6

camp, the beginning

of Hagley winter sport,

south east zones

cross country, and an

inquiry quiz about

sustainability.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE: Redcliffs

School’s four senior leaders

Claudia Peck, Tom Barker, Zack

Waite and Emilia Crooks, delivered

boxes of food to Christchurch

City Mission recently to go to less

fortunate families as it goes into

winter. The pupils meet regularly

to discuss ways they can lead in

school, but also make a difference

in the community. They will also

hold a sausage sizzle for Ronald

McDonald House, and the school

choir are going to sing to the

residents at Edith Cavell at Sumner. ​

Busy term for Redcliffs pupils

FOCUS: Junior pupils Noah

Drumm, Billie Feaver-

Banks, Charlie Davis and

Luke Cleugh get into their

sustainability inquiry quiz.

FUN: Sophie Didymus, Jade

Timbrell and Jorja Williams get

outdoors at the Year 6 camp.

GENEROUS: Ferrymead Rotary donated dictionaries to

Bromley School pupils recently to help them with their

English. Room 10 pupil Grace said the dictionaries were

“so cool”. “They are so easy to use at home – I love it.” Each

Room 10 pupil got their own dictionary to take home with

them. Heather Fear, of Ferrymead Rotary, said the club

was thrilled the children were enjoying the dictionaries. “It is

evident that the children really enjoy these books – maybe

they are the only books they have at home.” Ferrymead

Rotary has given dictionaries to several schools in the area.

The cost of the dictionaries is subsidised by the Bill and

Lorna Boyd Charitable Trust and the Lois Dalley Trust. ​

THEY’RE OFF: Pupils take off in the south

east zones cross country, where Redcliffs

pupils Charlie Bailey and Sam Clark won the

year 6 and year 8 boys races.

MUSIC: Redcliffs pupils David Wayne, Andrew

McLauchlan, Ollie Tinkler, Sophie Davis and

Annabelle Barker perform at their recorder recital.

Winter running

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

EVEN AS the days get colder

and darker, the Sumner

Running Club is still getting out

into the wintry conditions to get

involved in races.

Recently the club took part in

both a road race event, held at

the A&P Showgrounds, and a

cross-country race, at Halswell

Quarry.

Young runners from Sumner

represented their high schools

in the competitions, with varying

results.

Sumner had eight runners

partake in the events, with

members running for Christchurch

Girls’ High School, St

Margaret’s College, Christ’s

College, Burnside High School

and Marian College.

The best performer over the

two days was Lili Ovendale,

who ran for Christchurch Girls’

in the under 14 girls section,

and was second in the road race

and fourth in the cross-country.

Her school took out both teams

titles.

Sumner Running Club junior

co-ordinator Ann Wells said

the two races couldn’t have been

run in more than contrasting

conditions.

“The road race had a warm

wind and was a mild 15 deg C,

compared to the cross-country

with 8 deg C and worsening

rain conditions, the latter

providing true cross-country

running conditions,” she said.

Abby Theobald ran for St

Margaret’s in the under 15 race,

and finished sixth in both races.

Christ’s College’s John Wells

ran in the under 14 races and

finished ninth and 10th respectively.

His school finished third

in both teams races.

Max McLachlan, of Burnside

High School, returned from a

broken collarbone to produce

a good performance, finishing

ninth in the road race, and sixth

SPORTS

DETERMINED: Abby Theobald took sixth spot in the under 15 race. While Beth Hunter finished

10th in the under 14 race for Rangi Ruru Girls’ School.

in the cross country.

In the senior girls, Marian

College sisters, Jess and Meg

Fahey, had to contend with

torrential rain which made for

slippery conditions underfoot.

They finished sixth and 13th,

respectively.

In Brief

AKAROA TO DUNEDIN

Akaroa Area School pupils have

been selected to compete at the

New Zealand Area Schools sports

tournament in July. Nine pupils

will represent the Top of the

South Island area school’s team,

which will travel to Dunedin to

compete. Moses Bygate Smith for

basketball and volleyball, Josh

Little for rugby, Robin Enosi for

rugby, Tommi Hopkins for rugby

and football, Sean Hopkins for

football and ki-o-rahi, Hannah

Kiely and Faith McLauchlan-

Robinson for netball, and

Sapphire Jordan and Drew

Wilson for ki-o-rahi. The Akaroa-

Wairewa Community Board will

decide today whether to grant the

school $1000 to go towards the

cost of competing at the event in

Dunedin.

BAYS TEAMS LOSSES

Rugby and football scorelines

were not pleasant for those supporting

the bay area teams on

the weekend. Sumner’s premier

rugby side lost to Christchurch

25-6 at Christchurch Park. Nik

Cumming scored the only points

for Sumner from the boot. Ferrymead

Bays’ top side also lost

away to Nelson Suburbs at Saxton

Fields 4-2. Bays have now played

12 games and have secured just

13 points. A consolation for the

bay area was Banks Peninsula’s

premier rugby side, who overcame

Rolleston 24-22 at Little River.

Tries went to Jared Buckley, two

for Tom Power and one for Jack

Sanders.

It’s all too easy to hibernate winter away,

enjoying comfort food as you avoid the bad

weather and think that you’ll start a diet

to get ready for summer sometime soon.

However the team at The apothecary at

The tannery believe nothing should get in

the way of educating ourselves to a healthy

lifestyle and achieving the right weight for

us.

Their six week course – Weight loss

101 – runs for an hour every Wednesday

evening starting on 20 th July. Its aim is to

teach the science that lies behind managing

weight so that we can make choices about

what we eat that are informed, rather than

relying on sound bites and gossip about the

latest trendy diet. They cover topics such

as what macro and micro nutrients are and

the benefits and drawbacks of each; the

importance of regulating blood sugar and

how it actually affects your body; how the

body works, and how it is affected by what

we eat. The course is highly motivational

and run in a supportive group environment

which helps keep those attending on their

toes, and the facilitators are highly trained

professionals who know how to make this

topic interesting and relevant to you and

your lifestyle.

The Internet is full of tips and short cuts

on the latest ways to lose weight, but Weight

loss 101 gives you the knowledge to be able

to separate the fads that are founded in fact

from those that are no more than a gimmick.

You will learn how to manage your weight

effectively so that once it’s been lost, it stays

lost. It is not about going on a diet - it’s

about learning what a healthy diet is and the

difference it can make to you, your energy

and your whole attitude to life. Because they

know that the course is packed full of useful

information, a course booklet is provided

Cardiovascular Health

Wednesday, June 22nd, 6:00pm

which contains everything you

need to know. Costing only

$240 (working out at only $40

per seminar), it’s a perfect way

to leave yo-yo diets behind and

embrace good health. You will

receive a free sugar Destroyer worth $25)

support healthy blood sugar levels), and

if you book before June 30th you will get

the early bird discount which is $220 per

person.

Weight loss 101 is just one of an ongoing

series of seminars run by the team of

qualified herbalists and naturopaths at

The apothecary. They draw on their

knowledge and years of experience to help

their patients with a range of ailments, and

believe that with the right education, many

common problems can be avoided.

A house immaculate throughout, and

appealing as new kitchen, lovely harbour

Well engineered and insulated and

double glazed, this is an extremely easy

home to maintain and very economical to

run being very warm and easy to heat. Your

NOTIFICATION OF LIFTING OF

RESTRICTED FIRE SEASON

(IMPOSED PURSUANT TO SECTION

22(2) OF THE FOREST AND RURAL

FIRES ACT 1977)

CHRISTCHURCH CITY RURAL FIRE AREA

INCLUDING BANKS PENINSULA

Notice is hereby given that the restricted fire season

currently imposed by the Christchurch City Council

over the rural fire area for which the Council is the

Fire Authority is lifted from midnight Saturday 4 June

2016, to be replaced by an OPEN FIRE SEASON.

Fires may now be lit in the open air in rural areas

without permit. Restrictions may be reimposed at a

later date if weather conditions create a potentially

dangerous fire situation.

All residents are requested to take care when lighting

open fires. Before lighting fires in the open air,

careful consideration must be given to weather

conditions, adequacy of fire breaks, availability of

water, and the patrolling of fires until completely out.

Fires are not to be left burning after dark.

NOTE: Resource Consent conditions imposed by

Environment Canterbury may still apply.

Property owners within the Department of

Conservation Fire Safety Margin require a

permit all year round. Relevant authorities

should be contacted prior to any burning.
