Safety fence feedback sought

• By Bridget Rutherford

RESIDENTS SAY new safety

fencing to keep people out of

hazardous areas in parts of

Sumner and Redcliffs would be

too high and ugly.

The city council wants to

install 2m high safety fences

along the cliff sides of Main Rd

at Moa Bone Point, Shag Rock

Reserve and Wakefield Ave, from

Nayland to Paisley Sts.

It is looking at two different

options for the fences – mesh

fencing, or a pool-style fence.

But residents say 2m is too tall,

and want them lowered to 1.2m.

Sumner Community

Residents’ Association member

Darrell Latham said residents

believed a 2m mesh fence along

Main Rd at Shag Rock Reserve

was “totally inappropriate”.

“Our feeling is that a 1.2m

fence along the Shag Rock

Reserve section would be less

visually intrusive and our

preference is for one which is not

of mesh construction.”

He said residents believed 1.2m

high fences would be sufficient.

“Also from our perspective due

to the proximity to, and visibility

from the Coastal Pathway, it is

very important that the fence

or barrier be aesthetically

pleasing and in keeping with

the character and cultural

importance of the area.”

The city council says it is its

responsibility to make sure the

fencing is safe, and it wanted

residents’ feedback on what

option they preferred.

The fences could not be

easily climbed, and had to be

transparent.

Redcliffs Residents’

Association secretary Pat

McIntosh said a 2m high fence

“seems excessive in relation to

the risk”.

Residents have until Monday

to make submissions on the two

options.

The feedback would be

analysed by the city council

project team, which would then

make a decision on what type

would be used.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think new safety fences

to be installed on parts of

Main Rd and Wakefield Ave

will be too tall? Would you

prefer mesh or pool style

fencing? Email your views

New business premises opens

HOME: Casual and Country co-owner Jenny Turnbull says the store and its cafe, ten27, have

been busy since fully reopening.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

• By Bridget Rutherford

AFTER FIVE years,

Ferrymead’s Casual and

Country and cafe ten27, is

fully operating out of its new

premises just in time for its 25th

birthday.

Owners Jenny and John Turnbull

set up the Ferry Rd homewares

store in August 1992.

The cafe was set up in 2002.

But when the February 22,

2011, earthquake struck, both

the cafe and store were forced

out of the building due to earthquake

damage.

The store began operating out

of the old Seventh Wave building

next to Ferrymead Bridge,

while Quake Cafe operated out

of a portacom on the original

site, and then the neighbouring

one.

Mrs Turnbull said the store

reopened in January, while

ten27 opened its doors last

month.

“Right from the first day we’ve

been completely slammed,” she

said. “It’s certainly a huge relief,

it’s everything we’ve hoped for

and more.”

She said it was always the plan

to rebuild on the original site.

“It has been enormously difficult

and enormously challenging

and not something you’re

choosing to do.”

But like other Christchurch

businesses, they had no choice,

she said.

They either left the site empty,

or they rebuilt on it.

“But it’s an opportunity to

build something which is different

then what we’ve had before

and in many ways better.”

The cafe and store now have

separate entrances, which

means the cafe can stay open

for dinners from Wednesday to

Sunday, she said.

The previous menu was

predominantly made up of

cabinet food, however, it now

had breakfast, lunch and dinner

food prepared in the kitchen.

In Brief

SUMNER FACILITY NAME

FAVOURITES

There are two frontrunner

names for Sumner’s new community

centre, library and

museum. City council acting

head of Libraries and Information

Pat Street said Tuawera:

Sumner Centre and Matuku

Takotako: Sumner Centre, were

the “frontrunners”. Because the

names had historic significance

within the area, the city council

would work with Mana Whenua

to gather a greater understanding

of the story behind them, she

said.

GUNSHOT CONCERN

Police were called to Flinders

Rd, Heathcote Valley, on Saturday

after receiving reports of

gunshots in the area. A police

spokeswoman said the call came

at about 7.20pm, with the shots

possibly coming from a park off

Bridle Path Rd. However, she

said that police did not locate

anything or anyone of concern

in the area.

NEW DEPUTY FOR BOARD

Alexandra Davids will be deputy

chairwoman of the Hagley-Ferrymead

Community Board until

October’s local body elections.

Ms Davids will replace former

deputy Islay McLeod, who has

left her role on the board to

move back to Dunedin.

Village green on the move Plans for museum

now funded

SUMNER RESIDENTS have

found a new temporary home

for their village green and skate

ramp.

They will move to the former

Ruptured Duck Pizzeria and

Bar site until a more permanent

solution can be found.

A working bee will be held

on Saturday to help move the

ramp and other items from the

green to their new Wakefield

Ave home.

The village green was set up

after the former Sumner Community

Centre, on the corner of

Wakefield Ave and Nayland St,

was demolished due to earthquake

damage.

The city council will begin rebuilding

the facility, which will

include a community centre,

library and museum, on the site

next month.

Residents have been working

with the city council and Land

Information New Zealand to try

and secure part of the former

Marine Tavern site for a village

green.

Sumner Community Residents’

Association community

development and events manager

Liz Kerslake said it was

great to have found a temporary

home.

NEW HOME: Sumner residents mark out where the skate

ramp will go at its new temporary home on Wakefield Ave. ​

“The village green is the heart

of the community. It’s a great

bumping space.”

She said residents were very

supportive of trying to secure

part of the Marine Tavern site

for permanent use, but this was

a temporary fix.

Coffee Culture manager Jenny

Krex said the ramp brought life

back into the village.

“I just love seeing so many

people enjoying the centre of

the village as it gives the opportunity

for the old and young

– and all those in between – to

interact. It brings life back to the

village”.

A final skate night, with

fish ’n’ chips and hot chocolate

will be held at the current

village green tomorrow from

5.30pm, before it moves on the

weekend.

hand with the move, email

AKAROA MUSEUM now has

the money it needs to complete

the refurbishment and fit-out of

its exhibition spaces.

The Rue Lavaud museum

was closed in June 2012 after a

post-earthquake engineering

investigation revealed issues

with the structural strength of

the building.

But a year later, part of the

building was allowed to re-open.

Since then the museum, which

attracts about 25,000 visitors a

year, has had to make do with 30

sq m of exhibition space.

The limited space meant it

could only display a fraction of

its collection, which includes

about 20,000 objects relating to

the history of Akaroa and Banks

Peninsula.

Repairs have now been

completed, and the city council

has allocated $250,000 to the

museum to fit-out the remaining

270 sq m of exhibition space.

Akaroa Museum director

Lynda Wallace said the money

meant the museum could finally

implement the design plans it

had for its three large galleries.

“It means we will be able to

showcase more of the wonderful

DESIGN: Akaroa Museum

can now fit-out its exhibition

space after a $250,000 grant

from the city council. ​

objects we have and tell more

stories about Akaroa and Banks

Peninsula’s history,’’ Ms Wallace

said.

“We’re really looking forward

to sharing more of the collection

with visitors and our community.’’

Ms Wallace said the fit-out of

the exhibition spaces would be

done progressively over the next

year with the aim of having all

the work completed by this time

next year.

Akaroa-Wairewa Community

Board chairwoman Pam Richardson

said it was fantastic news

and would come as a big relief to

the community.

Bid to improve tunnel air

New monitoring

equipment

being installed

• By Bridget Rutherford

LYTTELTON TUNNEL is

having new equipment installed

to monitor air quality, after

more trucks began using it

following the earthquakes.

New Zealand Transport

Agency maintenance contract

manager Barry Stratton said the

current air monitoring equipment

only monitored carbon

monoxide levels.

The new equipment would

also monitor nitrogen dioxide

levels in the tunnel, he said.

It comes after concerns were

raised about more trucks having

to use the tunnel following the

February 2011 earthquake because

of the closure of Sumner

Rd.

“This was more generated

from the dust/ particulate in the

tunnel as a result of all the extra

truckloads of demolition material

since the earthquakes. The

purpose of the new equipment

is to improve the monitoring

within the tunnel as part of our

national guidelines for transport

agency-managed tunnels,” Mr

Stratton said.

Cleaning the tunnel has had

to increase from once a month,

to three times a week, following

the quakes, he said.

It has also led to the Lyttelton

Tunnel Bylaw changing, which

will make it mandatory for all

trucks with loose bulk loads to

be covered.

It is expected to come into

force this month.

The work has meant the

tunnel has been restricted to

one lane, between 9pm and

6am for four days last week, and

continues to be restricted until

Friday.

Other work had included

replacing the centre line studs,

and cleaning and replacing tunnel

lights.

Environment Canterbury has

been monitoring air quality

through a station on the corner

of Norwich Quay and Canterbury

St since January.

Mr Stratton said ECan was

interested to see the NZTA’s

results.

School’s long wait over

Redcliffs

School

principal

Rose

McInerney

talks

about how

it felt to

hear Education Minister

Hekia Parata announce

the school would remain

open

It’s quite hard to explain the

feelings of an interminable

wait that was finally coming to

an end.

The Redcliffs board of

trustees had now had quite a

few meetings with Minister

Hekia Parata to meaningfully

engage on the importance of

our school remaining open but

this was to be the mother of all

meetings.

So much preparation had

gone into what this day would

reveal and there was a strong

weight of responsibility in my

heart and I’m certain in the

hearts of those with me.

Half of the board – Kent

France, Mark Robberds, Steph

Grieve and I met at the airport

bright and early and ready to

go. We faced the very interested

media with our ongoing

positive approach to how well

we had problem solved the

Minister’s concerns and felt

hopeful for a change in decision

for the Redcliffs School

community. This issue had

now reached out to all New

Zealanders and we knew many

had a deep interest in what

Thursday’s result would be.

We travelled to Wellington

leaving our children in the

confident and professional

hands of our staff and the other

half of the board of trustees.

They carried on their school

day as normally as they possibly

could, while we boarded

our flight with the promise of

any news coming straight to

them the minute that we had

it. So much invested in this

process and so many people

willing us to have good news

for our community’s future.

On arrival in Wellington

we taxied to Parliament, had

a quick coffee, and again were

met by more media going in to

the Beehive.

We announced our arrival

at reception and sat down to

have our last chat about our

approach for the two potential

outcomes. So much time

had been given to this final

submission and it was truly

crunch time.

Before long we were welcomed

into the Minister’s

office with her large team of

advisers and we waited for

Minister Parata’s response

with baited breath.

While we had been banking

on a positive decision when it

actually came through there

were enormous hugs both in

Wellington and soon after in

Christchurch.

A united team of problem

solving, invested, tenacious,

determined individuals had

come together and saved our

Redcliffs School from closure.

A feeling I will never forget

and so proud to share in that

piece of very important history.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think moving Redcliffs

School to Barnett Park

would work? Email

your views to bridget.

rutherford@starmedia.kiwi

Massive effort

pays off

Green MP

Eugenie

Sage says the

Redcliffs School

decision was

great news

Congratulations

to everyone in the

Redcliffs School community for the

sustained and successful advocacy

to keep Redcliffs School as a local

school. Standing up for what you

believe in helps create change in

politics.

Overturning Education Minister

Hekia Parata’s interim decision last

November that Redcliffs School

would close by the end of this year

has taken a massive effort. It has

involved inspired leadership from

the school board of trustees, a determined

effort by parents, energy

from students and creative engagement

with the media and the wider

community.

The Minister’s decision will

ensure that Redcliffs School, either

on the Main Rd site or another site

such as Barnett Park, remains the

hub of its community.

Elsewhere in education, the news

has been less welcome. In a surprise

Budget move, the Government decided

to freeze funding for schools’

operational grants.

This means there will be more

pressure on parents to “donate”

even more for their children’s education.

This puts quality education

under strain and erodes the right to

a free education.

Operational funding goes into

essentials such as heating, computers

for students, learning support,

property maintenance, and relief

teachers.

We need regular funding increases

to keep up with increased

costs. Between 2010 and 2014

parents forked out $791.3 million to

subsidise their children’s education

with donations.

Redcliffs School Fair is one of

the largest and most successful in

Christchurch in raising funds to

help students learn. Lower decile

schools will suffer the most, as

their ability to fundraise is more

constrained.

As well as protecting the right of

students to be able to attend their

local neighbourhood school, we

need to ensure that funding for

education keeps up with inflation.

Bay Harbour News asked its

readers what they thought of

Banks Peninsula Community

Board members being paid

half of what city board

members will be paid following

October’s elections

Jeremy Agar – I was on the

Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community

Board in 2006 when we merged with

Christchurch and our pay was set at

a much lower level than that of our

colleagues in the city.

The then chair of the Remuneration

Authority, whose name I have forgotten,

deigned to meet us. Then, as now,

the word was that the decision was

based on a ‘formula’ to do with population,

but in spite of our repeated

attempts to get him to elaborate, he

was unable to advance a single rationale

in support of his ‘formula’. He did

not try to hide his boredom.

It needs to be remembered that the

Remuneration Authority used to be

known as the Higher Salaries Commission,

one of the designers of the

managerial culture which thinks that

town clerks and top executives need

to be paid ridiculously large sums.

They’re not keen on lower salaries,

which they associate with obsolete

notions like local democracy.

Prue Kennard – I just want to

add my voice to the plea for our

Banks Peninsula Community Board

members to receive exactly the same

remuneration as all the others regardless

of the population involved.

Their work is basically the same

and what’s more, their travel time

Proudly

supported by

must be much higher. It seems an insulting

and ridiculous move to reduce

their pay by this amount.

Charlotte Orr – Reading the local

body pay ‘ludicrous’ article, I totally

agree with the title. Even though I

grew up in Lyttelton, I am still anti

bias to contrary.

I strongly agree with the movement

that the Banks Peninsula Community

Board members should definitely

be paid the same as the city boards.

I can’t work out in my head how

smaller the Banks Peninsula area is

in comparison to Linwood-Central-

Heathcote.

But I can imagine it covers Lyttelton,

Diamond Harbour, Governors

Bay, Cass Bay and I’m sure to have

missed some.

However, I believe the Banks Peninsula

Community Board should get

paid parity with the city boards.

Port Hills Labour MP Ruth

Dyson responds to the

announcement that Redcliffs

School would remain open:

How fantastic is this news! I am

just so proud of the board, the staff,

the pupils and the community with

the way that they have professionally

and competently answered every

question to the Minister’s satisfaction.

I really look forward to this saga

closing and Redcliffs getting its

school back again. I understand that

the pupils were raising the classroom

roofs with their cheering! They deserve

to be happy and this news will

certainly make them happy!

we are, sometimes things fail.

In my case, the solution

was easy, feel sorry for myself,

keep warm and hydrated and

sit the week out so I did not

infect the rest of Canterbury.

Yes, it was that bad believe

me, man flu is the worst.

However, if we are on the

water and in spite of our

Pirate’s Corner

best preparations we end up

breaking down. And while I

am generally talking about

powerboats, non-powered

vessels can also have issues.

THe first thing is before

going out make sure we

have our two forms of

communication, ideally a

VHF radio and cellphone,

going a step further, flares

and a torch, a personal

locater beacon. All are there

to ensure your safety.

Having broken down, and

ensuring that we are safe, if

you are on vessel that is 6m

or less then you will already

have your lifejacket on.

If you are on one that is

over 6m then the first thing

we need to do is put our

lifejackets on then we need

to assess how we are going to

get back to shore. If you are

close enough, then you may

be able to use your alternative

propulsion, be it the oars or

auxiliary motor.

If this is not possible, use

your cell phone to call one

of your boating mates or

the VHF radio and call for

assistance.

Hopefully, another boatie

will be nearby and they may

be able give you a tow. If you

are a coastguard member you

can call them and they will

assist for no charge.

THere may be a charge if

you are not a member. So

not only is it worthwhile

supporting the Coastguard,

for a small fee you have

something similar to the

Automobile Association.

Well worth considering.

THat’s it from me this week,

stay warm and safe.

Dangers of plastic bags highlighted

PEOPLE WHO went to

Lyttelton Farmers’ Market on

Saturday were reminded of the

dangers plastic bags have on

the environment.

Members of the Plastic Bag

Free Lyttelton group were at

the market with cloth bags,

information, and stickers to remind

people to be wary when

using plastic bags.

While it appeared lighthearted,

the message was

deadly serious, and illustrated

by a fish puppet with a plastic

bag stuck in its gullet.

Primary school pupils sung

anti-waste songs, and spot

prizes were donated by Waste

Matters, Lyttelton’s wastebusting

team.

Plastic Bag Free Lyttelton

co-ordinator Juliet Neill said

the number of responsible

shoppers using re-usable bags

was growing.

“Plastic Shopping Bag Free

Lyttelton has been going for a

year now, with its aim being

to eliminate plastic shopping

bags from the town. Since its

inception, the local branch of

the vege co-op has partially

converted to using cloth bags

and the local supermarket has

converted to a more biodegradable

form of bag.”

She said more people were

bringing their own cloth bags

to the market, and the group

would like all retailers to convert

to reusable bags.

“We’d love to see the whole

of Christchurch, and indeed

the whole of New Zealand,

convert to sustainable packaging,

but we believe that starting

small with Lyttelton is a great

beginning. Plastic in our

oceans and in our landfills is a

hideous problem, but we must

tackle the problem in a positive

manner and keep smiling.”

WELL DONE: Heathcote Valley pupil Sophia Clark was presented with her Sir Peter Blake

Young Leader Award on Friday in front of her grand-mother Bev Martin (left), father Andy,

mother Sue and other grand-mother, Jackie Clark.

Young leader recognised

A HEATHCOTE Valley School

pupil has been recognised for

her leadership qualities.

Sophia Clark, 8, was presented

with a Sir Peter Blake Young

Leader Award on Friday.

The young leader awards, in

association with Westpac, acknowledge

young people whose

outstanding leadership uplifts

the school community.

The head girl got her award

for being caring, respectful,

positive, empathetic and hard

working.

She organised a fundraiser

for Vanuatu after it was hit by

Cyclone Pam.

Sophia also won the school’s

senior speech competition,

which was about Syrian refugees

and why we should be doing

more.

Sir Peter Blake Trust chief

executive Shelley Campbell said

Sir Peter showed that with great

leadership, extraordinary things

could be achieved.

“This award aims to nurture

and celebrate leadership in our

young people,” she said.

“The qualities these children

display – humility, humour,

inclusiveness, positivity and a

team approach – were all shown

by Sir Peter himself.”

Sophia would receive a prize

pack, certificate and Sir Peter

Blake Medal.

Each young leader was nominated

by either their class or a

teacher.

BILINGUAL: Amiria and Matakaea Tikao helped supermarket

customers celebrate Maori Language Week. ​

Pupils teach Te Reo

TWO SISTERS were the voices

behind a supermarket initiative

to celebrate Maori Language

Week.

Amiria Tikao, 12, and her

younger sister Matakaea, 9,

had their voices professionally

recorded in a sound studio to

help SuperValue and FreshChoice

customers better understand the

Maori language.

The sisters were recorded pronouncing

items such as apples,

mushrooms, fish, milk, meat,

kiwifruit and cheese, along with

many others.

Amiria said it was a fun project

to be involved with.

“It was really cool. It took about

45mins, so not very long . . . we

got most of the words first time,

which was good,” she said.

Local SuperValue and Fresh-

Choice supermarkets then put

posters up around their stores,

with a QR code that customers

could scan with their cell phone.

The code led to a website where

they could hear the two pupils

correctly pronounce the word.

Amiria said she had not yet

tested out the posters, but she

would think about going in later.

SuperValue and FreshChoice

brands manager Liz de Lange

said that when the campaign was

run last year, the QR codes were

used thousands of times.

Our People

Juliet Neill

Having fun with puppets but with

Juliet Neill is the co-ordinator of Plastic Bag Free Lyttelton, which aims to

raise awareness on the impacts the bags have on the environment. Bridget

Rutherford spoke to her about how it all began, moving to Lyttelton, and

being a puppeteer

CLEVER: Juliet Neill wrote and performed The Pirates of Corsair

Bay in 2012.

Juliet, Plastic Bag Free

Lyttelton has begun to take off,

can you fill me in on how it all

started and why?

It was about a year ago and

Denise Roche, a Green Party

politician, was spearheading a

campaign on Plastic Bag Free

New Zealand. She was going

around doing talks and organising

a petition and letters to

Parliament and that sort of thing.

I organised for her to come and

speak at Lyttelton Top Club and

we got a reasonably good turnout

and lots of enthusiasm. Is not a

Green Party initiative but that

was just what kicked it off.

So the group makes bags and

people can buy them to use for

their shopping?

Yes, we had them at the farmers’

market, and we just ask for koha

to cover our costs. They are all

made out of end of line fabrics,

so we don’t have to go out and

buy stuff, but there are costs of

running a campaign. SuperValue

helps us out. They have the bags

there all the time, and whatever

they make they just give back

to the campaign. They have also

converted to using biodegradable

bags, instead of using straight

plastic bags. We label the bags

and put information about the

campaign inside them. We’ve

also got the vege co-op partially

converted to cloth bags too.

And are a lot of people starting

to jump on board?

It’s just recently grown. It

started with a mad rush of

enthusiasm but when people

see what we’re doing they have

supported us.

I remember there was a Lyttelton

campaign to stop using coffee

cups because they were not

recyclable, did you have much to

do with that?

That was Waste Matters. We do

tie in with them, they are great.

It’s a small community so people

get involved.

Speaking of small communities,

when did you move to

Lyttelton?

I’ve been living here since 1995.

I was living in Christchurch and

I was looking for a place to live. I

didn’t mean to buy here, but I was

brought up on Otago Peninsula,

and it felt like home. Sea and hills

are very good for the soul.

What is it about Lyttelton that

you love?

It’s the community and the

scenery. It’s a good place living

on your own, you walk down the

street and bump into people you

know and have a conversation. It’s

the sort of place you can actually

get initiatives going off your own

bat. There’s more freedom.

And where on the Otago Peninsula

did you grow up?

Macandrew Bay. We came out

from Northern Ireland when I

was five. We had two years in

Christchurch and then lived

down there from when I was

seven-years-old. My father had

been in the army, and there was

a family business in Dunedin

which was ailing, and he moved

from the army to do that.

environmental issues in mind

How does Dunedin stack up

against Lyttelton?

I love Dunedin, through

circumstances I ended up in

Christchurch. I would have

moved back to Dunedin after the

earthquakes if it weren’t for my

lovely friends and my daughter.

It’s those long term connections

that make the difference.

And I hear you were a teacher,

what did you teach?

I was a teacher of drama, but I

finished that in early 2000s. I’m

also a puppeteer. I still perform

as a puppeteer, and until recently

I wrote murder mystery parties.

I’m just finding more time now

to do my own creative thing I

do a bit of art work, as well as

getting involved in environmental

issues, which I think are very

important.

How did you get into puppeteering?

It was when I was first teaching,

primary teaching, and then I had

done amateur theatre. I’d made

puppets with the kids and then

after adopting a daughter, I began

developing shows, going around

schools and performing them

around Canterbury. Then life

took other turns then I got back

into it in 2000s. I wrote the puppet

shows and performed them.

BAG LADIES: Juliet Neill and her puppet ‘Daphne’ raising awareness for Plastic Bag Free

Lyttelton at the farmers’ market. (Right)Juliet likes to get political with her puppets. This is Roger

Sutton and Gerry Brownlee who were part of a post-earthquake show about insurance battles.

How do you decide what the

puppets will look like?

My puppets evolve. The show

I’m doing at the moment is based

on Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit so

I’ve based the puppets on those

characters. A couple of weeks

ago I organised a day of puppetry

performing on the first day of the

Lyttelton Festival of Lights.

And do you keep all of the

puppets that you make?

I’ve got boxes of them in my

garage, heaps of them! I’ve made

some on commission, caricatures

of some people. I did work with

community house and made the

first giant puppet that we use for

the festival of lights. There’s also

a giant fish, a phoenix bird that

rose from the rubble after the

earthquakes and there’s also a

huge character which is a sort of

volcano thing. I used to run mask

workshops for the festival parade,

because I used to organise the parade

for about six or seven years,

but I stopped that about three

years ago.

Wow, that must have taken a

lot of organising.

You just learn by trial and error,

but it was a lot of work.

And what do you like to do in

your spare time?

I do a bit of painting, gardening,

and I also like singing.

And does your daughter live

in Lyttelton too?

Yes she lives in Lyttelton. She is

a bit of an artist, and she managed

Lyttelton Coffee Company.

So what is your ultimate goal

for Plastic Bag Free Lyttelton?

Well wouldn’t it be lovely if

the whole of New Zealand went

plastic bag free? It is such a huge

environmental problem. It would

be good if people began to take

global warming seriously as well.

Both of these things come down

to economics, as well as trying to

make the world a better place.

What do you think it was

that made you more concerned

about environmental issues?

I don’t know. My parents had

a love of the land and animals.

My father changed from being

a National party voter to being

quite an environmentalist, and

he joined Greenpeace in his later

years. And I guess just from

reading and life experiences.

So you were out and about at

Lyttelton Farmers’ Market on

Saturday with the Plastic Bag

Free campaign?

We were just talking to people

in the street and giving information.

A lot of people are right

behind it. There’s been a huge

uptake of people using reusable

bags at the market now. After

local body elections it would be

nice to establish a dialogue with

the council about it.

And what else have you been

involved with during your time

in Lyttelton?

I used to do voluntary work at

the Lyttelton Information Centre

for three or four years. And we

have a tree planting initiative at

Urumau Reserve. I’ve sort of just

this year got involved with planting

and watering.

badge for her success in all school

areas.

“It was exciting when I first

found out I got it,” she said.

“It’s something I’ve been determined

to get since I first came into

the senior room so I’m very happy

to have received it.

“I’m most proud of being part

of the special choir for four years,

winning a New Zealand writing

competition and being a competitor

at the zone swimming sports

and joining the bulletin team.

“It’s definitely a good thing to

strive for and such a great feeling

when you know you’ve achieved

it.”

Diamond Harbour School pupils celebrated their own

book week. As part of the week, the pupils shared bedtime

stories and hot chocolate, and received a visit from author

Bill Nagelkerke. They also held a bumper literary quiz,

community-wide book swap and a dress-up parade. Not

only did the tamariki enjoy dressing up, but staff also went all

out to make the day a memorable one.

CELEBRATION: Visiting author Bill Nagelkerke (above)

entertained with his stories and magic tricks. Diamond Harbour

staff (below) dressed up as part of the school’s book week.

Pupils on

recycling

adventure

DIAMOND Harbour’s Kotuku

class went on an adventure to

learn about recycling, waste

and what to do with unwanted

items.

Pupils went to the recycling

centre, EcoDrop, on Parkhouse

Rd to see what happens to

recycling after it is collected.

After that, they drove around

EcoDrop to see the different

types of things people dropped

off.

This included car batteries,

furniture, household chemicals

and scrap steel such as washing

machines.

The next stop was the Eco-

Shop, where the group bought

all the necessary items they

would need for a future flat,

with a $500 budget.

Next, the group headed to

Fendalton Open-air School to

have a look at its sound garden,

which was made out of unwanted

materials.

The sound garden contained

instruments made out of old

violins, bamboo sticks, tin

cans, pots and pans. The pupils

could make noises with the

instruments.

They then headed to the Gap

Filler sound garden on Peterborough

St. The pupils went

home with lots of inspiration to

make their own sound gardens.

Final countdown for SCIRT programme

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls

is now 91% complete and will finish in December.

Almost 80% of our repair programme is focused on the city’s underground

pipe networks.

SCIRT has replaced 715km of pipes – the distance of a return trip between

Christchurch and Dunedin. These pipes are now invisibly doing their important job

below ground.

Redcliffs School pupils learned how to

be safe around large trucks. The school

got a visit from the New Zealand Trucking

Association last week. Pupils got to climb

into the big trucks and learn about air

turbulence and blind spots for the drivers.

Principal Rose McInerney said it was a really

important lesson for the pupils, as there

were a lot of trucks in the area.

Dreaming of a plastic bag-free world

GOVERNORS BAY School

pupils won a competition aimed

at decreasing the use of plastic

shopping bags.

The school made cloth bags from

recycled fabric to be used as alternatives

to single use plastic bags.

The competition was organised

by Plastic Bag-Free Christchurch

to mark International Plastic Bag-

Free Day on July 3.

The school’s 66 pupils made

111 bags, some from singlets and

T-shirts.

One pupil made eight bags.

Governors Bay won a prize of

$100 and received a certificate.

World-wide, about a trillion single

use plastic bags are produced

every year, with only one to three

per cent recycled.

Plastic bags are used for a short

period of time before they are

discarded.

They often end up in the ocean,

affecting marine life.

Take a star-studded tour of

• By Mike Yardley

HOLLYWOOD DRIPS with

international glamour.

But how can you break through

the Tinsel Town mystique and

bask in the stardust?

On my most recent visit, I set

myself the mission of staking

out some old-school glamour,

celeb-heavy haunts and trending

hotspots.

All roads lead to the Hollywood

Strip, or “the boulevard of broken

dreams”, as my Red Line walking

tour guide, Michael, preferred to

call it.

Red Line’s Behind the Scenes

tour has become part of Hollywood

folklore, expertly narrated

and spiriting you into many

storied nooks and crannies, that

most tourists miss. www.redlinetours.com/la

After admiring some of the

legendary names lining Hollywood

Boulevard’s Walk of Fame,

Michael ushered us in what I

think is the most unsung vestige

of Hollywood glam: the Egyptian

Theatre.

Extensively restored and earthquake

re-strengthened in recent

years, this picture palace was the

birthplace of the movie premiere

and the movie star.

Built by Sid Grauman in 1922,

GLAM: You never know who you will bump into in the lobby of the Redbury Hotel. Each room comes complete with record

players and vinyl.

he used search lights for a premiere

and it was where red carpet

was first rolled out all the way to

the street.

Egyptian music and incense

wafted through the courtyard,

adding to the Egyptian motif,

which was all the rage, given the

epic excavations and discovery of

King Tut’s tomb.

Inside the theatre, I admired

the two Egyptian dog statues, gifted

by 20th Century Fox, which

featured in Cleopatra, starring

Elizabeth Taylor. The Red Line

Tour is a great way to get inside

this heritage-studded shrine.

Five years later, Sid Grauman

launched another lavish movie

palace, the Chinese Theatre,

which continues to host more

world premieres than any other

theatre on the planet.

I’ve often wondered how the celebrity

hand, and footprints, immortalised

in the forecourt, first

came about. Red Line’s Michael

had the good oil.

Sid Grauman created the first

footprints by mistake – stepping

into wet concrete as his theatre

was being constructed.

The foreman remarked:

“Those footprints are going to

be there forever,” and the rest is

history.

Pop into the Hollywood

Museum, housed in the 1930s

Max Factor building, where

so many screen legends were

transformed in the famous

make-up rooms. Lucille Ball,

Rita Hayworth, Judy Garland

and Elizabeth Taylor were all

primped and styled here – as was

Marilyn Monroe. It was here that

the brunette became the blonde

bombshell.

Tinsel Town

Pop into the landmark Hollywood

Roosevelt Hotel, which

is where Shirley Temple learnt

to tap dance and where Marilyn

Monroe’s first magazine shoot

took place, shot by the Tropicana

pool.

That location is now a top celeb

hideaway that you can gain access

too. A true Hollywood oasis, the

poolside Tropicana Café & Bar is

a seductive all-day retreat.

Enjoy a late breakfast or cheeky

cocktail here. A star-studded

haunt for close celebrity encounters

– and the permanent presence

of paparazzi, is The Ivy in

Robertson Boulevard.

It’s a great spot for breakfast or

lunch: order up the cheap and

cheerful homemade buttermilk

pancakes and fresh ginger tea.

If you notice swarms of tourists

photographing the fast food joint,

El Pollo Loco, on the corner of

Serrano Ave and Sunset Boulevard,

the reason is this is where

a struggling young actor named

Brad Pitt, would beckon customers

into the store, dressed up as a

chicken on the roadside. Nearby,

on the Sunset Strip, pop into the

auction house, Bonhams.

They stage regular auctions and

the loot inside this place rivals

a museum. It is the number one

clearing house for second-hand

celebrity goods.

I had a major star moment, in

the elevator of my hotel, The Redbury.

Cyndi Lauper swept into

the lift with her entourage, chatty,

charming and looking half of

her 62 years of age. The Redbury,

a boutique all-suites hotel, sits

across the road from the iconic

Capitol Records building.

Glamorous, colourful and spacious,

the 57 guest suites come

complete with record players and

vinyl collections. I played Duke

Ellington on repeat.

The quirky and eye-catching art

pieces, sprinkled throughout the

property are pure escapism.

I loved the hip Middle Easterninspired

Cleo restaurant and

the indoor-outdoor library for

handcrafted cocktails. Plus there’s

a complimentary BMW house car

available for pick-up or drop-off

within three miles.

Accommodation rates are not

eye-watering – and you never

know who you’ll bump into.

Bays’ hopes diminish

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

DANNY HALLIGAN’S dream

of a top three finish was dashed

on Saturday, as his Ferrymead

Bays team went down 1-0 to

Coastal Spirit.

At the start of the season, Halligan

said that Bays were not in

to make up the numbers, and

that “third (place) would be the

minimum” expectation.

“We’ve been building and improving

so I think third would

be the minimum expectation

and we’ll do everything we can

to get that title,” Halligan said in

the pre-season.

Although it’s still mathematically

possible for Bays to finish

third, they would have to win

all five remaining games in the

league, and Nelson Suburbs

would have to lose all five of

their matches as well.

Bays last five matches include

playing against league leaders

Cashmere Technical and thirdplaced

Nelson Suburbs.

Bays currently sit in fourth

place, 13 points behind Nelson,

making their clash on August 13

at Ferrymead Park all the more

important.

It could get worse for Bays, too,

if FC2011 beat Universities on

Saturday and Bays lose to Cash

Tech, they will drop below FC on

the ladder and have no chance of

reaching third.

Halligan could not be reached

by Bay Harbour News for comment.

Bays’ end of season run

in McCaffrey’s 100th

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

SUMNER No 10 Nik Cumming

put on a classy performance

against High School Old Boys

to help his side celebrate centre

Reece McCaffrey’s 100th game

for the club.

Sumner mounted a come back

to win the game at St Leonard’s

Square 23-17 after being down

14-12 at half time.

McCaffrey led the team onto

the field and captained the side

for the game in recognition of

his milestone game.

Cumming said the team

pulled together and played hard

for their skipper on the day.

“It was a good moment for

him, he’s a huge part of the club.

I work with him and he was a

big part of me coming over, and

the boys wanted to perform for

him,” he said.

But Cumming stole the show

by scoring all Sumner’s points

– three tries, a conversion, and

two penalty kicks.

Cumming now leads the

Hawkins Division 1 Cup for

most points scored.

He has a total of 179 points

with one match to go – a point

ahead of Old Boys first fiveeighth

Jarred Percival.

Percival did not take to the

field against Sumner because of

his trial for the Southland ITM

Cup squad.

Cumming said he was glad

not to have Percival on the field,

as he has been key to Old Boys’

success this season.

“I’m sort of happy, I guess,

that he wasn’t playing.

“He’s a good player and makes

a big difference in the way they

play. They tend to run a bit of

their game off him,” Cumming

said.

With just one game remaining

in the season before the

play-offs, Sumner sit in third

place in the section two table,

with three wins from the last

four matches.

Their final match will be

played away against Belfast on

Saturday and is a must win if

they hope to make the ‘middle

four’ semi-finals.

The semi-finals will see the

bottom two teams from section

one playing off against the top

two from section two.

POWERING ON: Lyttelton’s Timm Hunter (right) on the charge

during Saturday’s match won by New Brighton 15-10. ​

Lyttelton’s bitter pill

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

LYTTELTON’S TOP side may

be out of contention for the

Hawkins Division 2 Cup, but

they won’t stop fighting for the

best finish they can get.

Lyttelton’s 15-10 loss against

New Brighton on Saturday

means they are in fifth place

heading into the season’s knockout

stages.

The club’s rugby development

officer Clint Williams said it was

a gut-wrenching end to a solid

season.

“To be honest, I think that was

the end of our season, that loss to

Brighton. We’ll end up playing

for fifth and sixth now I think,

which is a bit tough to swallow

because we played so well,” he

said.

On looking at the start of the

club’s season, Mr Williams said

injuries to key members of the

team led to a tough tournament.

“I’m not making excuses for

the boys at all, but if you looked

at the team we had at the start of

the season, we’ve had a massive

struggle with injuries.

“Our captain and about five of

the team’s leadership group were

all injured.

“One injury came in the first

two minutes of the season’s

opening game, and that was his

season over,” he said.

Lyttelton will face Linwood

in the final game of the normal

season, before going into the

knockout stage.

Motoring

Skoda Fabia wagon a good value purchase

• By Ross Kiddie

THE JUNE 23 referendum

which resulted in Great Britain’s

withdrawal from the European

Union has taken the world by

surprise.

There will be a long period

of global financial uncertainty

before stability returns and that

will also affect many aspects of

our down under economies.

In the short term, imported

goods will most certainly rise,

including motor vehicles, especially

those sourced from Europe.

That being the case, there’s

probably no better time to buy a

European car, and if your budget

is a little restricted but you need

a reliable practical car, Skoda has

the answer.

A new Fabia has just landed

and it lists from $19,990. It

arrives here in three variants,

and I was lucky enough to land

a drive in the range-topping station

wagon which, incidentally,

lists at an amazing $26,990,

making it, what I believe to be

one of the bargain purchases in

today’s new car market.

The Fabia wagon, or Combi,

as Skoda badge it, is powered

by a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder

engine. Before you scoff at its

meagre displacement, bear in

mind that it produces 81kW

and has a healthy 175Nm of

SKODA FABIA COMBI: Volkswagen-based engineering.

torque thanks to turbocharged

boost. If you take into account

the areas where peak power and

maximum torque are developed

(4600rpm-5600rpm and

1400rpm-4000rpm respectively),

there is an unimpeded supply of

power from very low in the rev

band, providing a spirited drive

through a seven-speed direct

shift automatic gearbox.

If fuel usage is also an important

buying criteria, the Fabia

Combi is listed with a 4.8-litre

per 100km (58mpg) combined

cycle average.

You don’t have to try hard to

replicate that, I wasn’t gentle

with the throttle during my time

in the test car, yet it was easy to

have the fuel usage readout listing

around 6l/100km (47mpg),

that along with an instantaneous

readout of 4.6l/100km (62mpg)

on the highway cruising a

steady 100km/h (engine speed

2050rpm).

I’ve often written about the

Czech Republic’s engineering

prowess, and if you combined

that with Volkswagen’s manufacturing

ideology of quality and

efficiency you won’t be disappointed

with Fabia. The entire

package is one of practicality

and functionality.

Take it’s 505-litre load space

for example, extending to

1370-litres, the wagon section

is cavernous for what is

deemed to be a small car. That

doesn’t come at the cost of rear

occupant space, the Fabia can

still be considered a marginal

five-seater, head and leg room is

satisfactory.

Up front it is the same, the

seating position is constantly

comfortable, and the controls

fall readily to hand. It’s fair to

say the Fabia isn’t overly complicated,

there aren’t a lot of

functions to speak of, but the

essentials are there, and there is

enough kit to still consider the

purchase a bargain.

I took the test car on my usual

high country drive beneath the

Malvern Hills and found it to

be a spirited, well-handling car

which quickly endears itself.

Handling-wise it is directional

with quick turn-in and positive

steering feel. Providing the grip

are 215/45 x 16in Bridgestone

Potenza performance tyres, what

they lack in size they make up

for in quality, they are sticky yet

also quiet.

There aren’t any surprises

within the suspension, but

if you take into account that

the floorpan is essentially

Volkswagen Polo-based, you can

guarantee a sophisticated ride

along with spring and damper

rates that arrest body movement

when confronted with a quick

corner or two, and if you really

But even in standard form the

Fabia wagon is an adept handler.

Becasue the engine develops

its power low in the rev band

and the constant supply of gearing

there is a seamless flow

of energy. It is responsive and

willing, easily offering the performance

needed for a highway

overtake or a quick burst on a

hilly incline.

The Fabia Combi really

feels just right from the moment

you hop into it. I’m hoping that

amidst all the uncertainty in

Europe at the moment that good

cars like it, and the hundreds

of others which find their way

Britain’s decision to go it alone.

No Man’s Land by Simon Tolkien

From the slums of London to the riches of an Edwardian country house;

from the hot, dark seams of a Yorkshire coalmine to the exposed terrors of

the trenches, Adam Raine’s journey from boy to man is set against the

backdrop of a society violently entering the modern world. Adam

Raine is a boy cursed by misfortune. His impoverished childhood

in the slums of Islington is brought to an end by a tragedy

that sends him north to Scarsdale, a hard-living coalmining

town where his father finds work as a union organizer. But it

isn’t long before the escalating tensions between the miners

and their employer, Sir John Scarsdale, explode with terrible

consequences. In the aftermath, Adam meets Miriam, the

Rector’s beautiful daughter, and moves into Scarsdale Hall, an

opulent paradise compared with the life he has been used to before.

But he makes an enemy of Sir John’s son, Brice, who subjects him to

endless petty cruelties for daring to step above his station. When love and an

Oxford education beckon, Adam feels that his life is finally starting to come

together – until the outbreak of war threatens to tear everything apart.

Welsh borders, Catrin is on the brink of womanhood and falling in love for

the first time. Her father is a soothsayer, playing a dangerous game playing

on the mixed loyalties and furious rivalries between welsh princes and

English lords. For two hundred years, the Welsh people have lain under the

English yoke, dreaming of independence. And finally it looks as though the

charismatic Owain Glyndwr may be the man legend tralks of. In the walls of

Sleeper’s Castle, Catrin finds herself caught in the middle of a doomed war as

she is called upon to foretell Wales’s destiny… And what she sees, is blood

and war coming closer…Hay, 2015. Miranda has moved to Sleeper’s Castle

to escape and grieve. Slowly she feels herself coming to life in the solitude of

the mountains. But every time she closes her eyes her dreams become more

vivid. And she makes a connection with a young girl, who’s screaming, who’s

reaching out… who only Miranda can help. Is she losing herself to time?

How To Avoid Back Pain

In 3 Easy Steps

Back pain affects 80% of adults,

statistics say that at any given

time 47% of adults are suffering

back pain.

Admittedly the range is from

stiffness through to major back pain, but

these statistics shouldn’t frighten, but help

you understand how to avoid back pain.

Okay, so what steps can you follow to

avoid back pain?

Step One: Recognise that most back

pain is not from falls or major injuries.

The vast majority of back pain comes

from small injuries.

The lifting of your child, gardening,

shifting a chair or even bending, twisting

or moving without any effort at all.

A study showed that of all the injuries

that people listed as the cause of their

pain, 92% of these were not severe enough

to cause any pain at all. Why?

it is the accumulation of many small

injuries over time that cause pain. So how

can you stop these?

you can’t, you have to live life after all.

But what you should do is recognize the

first signs that these are accumulating.

That morning stiffness when you get out

of bed. The tightness when you move.

These are the times to take action and

make sure your muscles and joints are in

balance. even going for a long walk can

help ease some of this tension. But this

leads us to step two.

Step two: if it doesn’t ease, then time

generally won’t help. if pain is present for

more than a few days, then it is unlikely

to completely ease by itself. Sure pain may

disappear but most often you are left with

some lingering issue.

This is one of the reasons that as we age

we feel tighter, less able to move and more

general aches and pains. All these little

injuries that have never completely healed.

So if pain persists (as those ads say on tV),

seek help. Which leads to the final step.

Step Three: here in the lovely bay

harbour area, we are blessed with many

great Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and

massage Therapists.

So there is no need to put up with pain. And even if the pain is minor, now is the best

time to remove it before it becomes chronic and you spend your days not moving as

freely as you should. Keeping your joints and muscles in good balance will help prevent

joint issues as you age.

it is that simple … an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. take action now

and feel free to call for a consultation so you can see how we can get you moving freely

again. The Clinic is open for new clients again, so call on 3840-160 if you feel you need

help with any pain, no matter how small.

Graeme Teague’s clinic is located at 85 Major Hornbrook Road, Mt Pleasant.

8am to 6pm. Phone 384-0160 to make an appointment.

Retaining Wall

When considering a retaining wall,

Solveig Construction can advise the

best solution based on the structural

requirements and aesthetic needs.

The main function of retaining wall

systems is to create a strong wall

structure to contain and stabilise soil

and rock behind the wall system to

stop erosion on steep and sloped

landscapes.

The other advantage is for their decorative appeal that will transform any landscape setting

to look attractive and create visual interest. Retaining walls can be constructed from various

building materials such as, concrete blocks, natural stone blocks, bricks, poured in concrete

and timber.

Before choosing the look of the wall you want on your property, you must seek professional

advice. With our expertise and knowledge, Solveig Construction can suggest the best type

of wall design and the most suitable material appropriate to your needs.

Contact Dougall Patchett to discuss options for your retaining wall design.

Phone 027 431 5289.

Parklands Drive – Concrete block and timber walls with steps

As the house is at the bottom of a sloping section, the homeowner required clear access

around the front of the home. The solution is a concrete block retaining wall topped by a

landscaped terrace edged with a small timber wall. Steps allow access from the lawn to the

front entry.

developing skills they need, at an appropriate time,

alongside kids their age. We aim to get them

bond and play together, or we can take care of

them while you run errands or have some time

to yourself!

weeks to 6 months.

Hip Hop 5 - 13 years A class to inspire children and allow

them express themselves through hip hop dance.

Birthday Parties My First Gym gives your birthday kid and

their friends the full run of the facility, filling the celebration

with instructor-led games, music, and fun! You don’t even

have to worry about setup or cleanup, making it that much

more fun for everyone!
