Decision looms on how

Lyttelton buildings will look

• By Bridget Rutherford

LYTTELTON COULD soon

have a panel that will help

oversee what can be built there

and how new buildings will look.

The city council will decide

tomorrow whether to approve

the establishment of a Lyttelton

Design Review

Panel for an

18-month trial

period.

It comes

after residents

Brent Stanaway

Paula Smith

Brent and Ann

Stanaway tried

to build a new

home on the

corner of Sumner

Rd and Oxford St

in 2012, but had

their design rejected

by the city

council because

it was not suitable

for the heritage precinct.

The panel would be made

up of four Lyttelton residents,

with some form of urban design

qualification, to help review

any new build resource consent

applications.

It would then write a report

on the plans, which would be

reviewed by the city council’s

Urban Design Panel.

The concept is similar to the

Akaroa Design and Appearance

Advisory Committee.

REJECTED: An artist’s impression of what Brent and Ann Stanaway’s new home on the corner of Oxford St and Sumner Rd would

have looked like. The plan was rejected by the city council in 2012.

The Lyttelton-Mt Herbert

Community Board has been

pushing for the panel to be set up

since the February 2011 earthquake,

so the community has

more say in the area’s rebuild.

Chairwoman Paula Smith

said there was a strong desire for

Lyttelton’s remaining heritage to

be restored, but residents did not

want to “recreate” what was there

before.

“The board has been aware

there is a very high level of

interest and concern in Lyttelton

about urban design issues.”

The Stanaway family were

living in the former fire station

building, and wanted to

rebuild on the site after it was

demolished due to earthquake

damage.

Mr Stanaway said he did not

know enough about the panel,

so he did not want to comment

on it.

Ms Smith said the board

hoped the panel would help new

builds reflect Lyttelton’s “character

and culture”.

“More unusual buildings may

be able to be built,” she said.

She said the board wanted to

hear from experts that would be

interested in being part of the

panel.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think Lyttelton needs a

design review panel? Would

buildings in Lyttelton? Email

Mixed views on second tunnel

THE IDEA of creating a second

tunnel between Christchurch

and Lyttelton has a community

board leader happy but

frustrated.

A report showed a second road

tunnel between Christchurch

and Lyttelton will be needed in

about 20 years

due to growth in

freight transport.

Lyttelton-Mt

Herbert Community

Board

chairwoman

Paula Smith said

it was about time

a second tunnel was looked at.

“There’s been a constant

increase in traffic as freight

volume increases and it creates

safety issues for people moving

through the town,” Ms Smith

said.

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch

chief executive Peter Davie said

a “guestimate” from an engineer

had put the cost of a second

tunnel in the region of $500

million and funding it would

probably fall to road control

authorities.

Mr Davie said the logical

thing would be for one tunnel

to serve port traffic, possibly

bypassing Norwich Quay in Lyttelton

and connecting directly to

the port.

“We need it as soon as possible

because for years the Lyttelton

residents have been asking to

get the heavy traffic off Norwich

Quay,” Ms Smith said.

Ms Smith was upset that a

second tunnel is only being

considered now as Sumner Rd is

being reopened to accommodate

freight traffic.

“They’re spending between

$40 and $60 million dollars to

reopen Sumner Rd as a freight

route which will only be used

by a few trucks and about less

than 300 cars a day. We couldn’t

believe it was approved because

it’s so shortsighted – it’s never

going to be a residential route,”

she said.

“Now it’s approved and

underway and they’re going to

stuff the landscape on this side . .

. only now they’re talking about

a freight tunnel? I can’t believe

it. Bring it on, we welcome it –

but why didn’t someone say this

earlier?,” Ms Smith said.

She said the Sumner Rd

reopening will help in the Lyttelton

Port’s reclamation at Te

Awaparahi Bay.

She said the excavation of

material on Sumner Rd will

be added to the extension the

company is doing to facilitate

“They have managed to get the

ratepayer and taxpayer to underwrite

work that they would’ve

had to have done anyway to

achieve their long-term goal,”

she said.

New Zealand Transport

Agency director southern region

Jim Harland said the tunnel

still had significant capacity to

accommodate further growth in

traffic volumes before a solution

would be needed. Increasing the

use of rail to the port would also

help.

NZTA is expected to install

by the end of next year, involving

$4 million war memorial

centre opens next month

• By Annabelle Dick

THE MT PLEASANT War

Memorial Community Centre

is one step closer to opening

after several delays under

construction.

A plaque to acknowledge the

new centre – which will open

next month – has been provided

by the Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board.

The centre has had the opening

delayed twice due to construction

woes and the discovery

of asbestos in the ground as

the centre is built on a former

landfill.

Community centre president

Derek McCullough said the

$4 million project has taken

years to come to fruition, but

residents are excited about the

unveiling.

“The community can’t wait –

they’re busting to get in there.

They’ve seen it take shape over

the last couple of years and it’s

such an iconic, nice looking

building,” he said.

“It sits in its location really well

and reflects the history.”

The centre had to be rebuilt

after sustaining significant damage

in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

The facility was under-insured

Centre will open next month after the former centre was badly

damaged in the earthquakes. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

at the time of the earthquake so

funding the $4 million cost of

the rebuild has been an uphill

battle.

The city council approved a

sum of $428,000 to complete the

repairs and landscaping, but the

association still needs to raise

nearly $500,000 to complete the

build without a loan.

The group is asking residents

to donate to the rebuild fund,

but the centre will still open next

month regardless of whether

they meet that target.

“We’ll have it ready for summer

and onwards from there

for the community to use,” Mr

McCullough said.

The community centre will

open on September 30 with an

official ceremony.

Two metre pool-type

fencing for Main Rd

• By Annabelle Dick

POOL STYLE safety fencing

will be installed along the

cliff sides of Main Rd in spite

of negative feedback from

residents.

The city council will install

2m high safety fences along the

cliff sides of Main Rd at Moa

Bone Point, Shag Rock Reserve

and Wakefield Ave, between

Nayland to Paisley Sts.

The city council was looking

at two options for the fencing –

mesh or pool-style fencing.

The proposal received 145

submissions with 59 per cent in

favour of the pool-style design

and 30 per cent in support of a

mesh style security fence.

But some residents are unhappy

with the outcome, saying

a 1.2m fence with hazard signs

will do the same job as a fence.

“The proposed prison fencing

is entirely inappropriate. A barrier

like a normal fence or wall,

or a swimming pool type fence

a metre high would be acceptable,

as would hazard warning

signs at intervals along the fence

length,” Redcliffs Residents’ Association

acting chairman Chris

Doudney said.

Sumner Community Residents’

Association member Darrell

Latham said they consulted

with the city council to see if

the height could be changed but

the 2m fence height was nonnegotiable.

But residents are confused

are receiving conflicting emails

from city council staff.

Senior planner Melinda Smith

said in an email:

“There is usually some scope

for change within a consent

and, if it were to be a wee bit

shorter or taller, that would be

unlikely to be an issue under the

Resource Management Act.”

But city services general

manager David Adamson told

residents in an email it was still

non-negotiable because the

purpose of the fence was to keep

people out and 2m is appropriate.

“We’re not prepared to compromise

safety for aesthetics,”

he said.

Residents in the affected areas

were invited to a consultation

evening by the city council to

discuss the fence options. But

the both of the residents’ associations

are unhappy with the

meeting because community

input was restricted.

Fencing will be progressively

installed as work is completed at

the three sites.

EQC has just extended its deadline

Its latest ‘reassurance’ on Limitation Act says

‘EQC reserves the right to change its approach.’

The only way to settle your claim is to sue EQC.

have had settled after filing court proceedings.

Iconic building may be sold

• By Annabelle Dick

CITY COUNCIL-owned Yew

Cottage in Akaroa could be sold

after a report recommended the

sale of the heritage building.

A staff report, released last

week, recommended the historic

1870s cottage be sold.

The Akaroa-Wairewa Community

Board will meet today at

9:30am in Little River to decide

the cottage’s future.

The building has been deteriorating,

with water seeping

through the roof, and the whole

structure has been in decline for

many years.

The Akaroa Civic Trust,

among others in the community,

lobbied for more than eight years

for the city council to maintain

and restore the building, with

little success.

Akaroa Civic Trust representative

Steve Lowndes said the city

council was down-playing the

heritage value of the building on

the area.

“The cottage is part of the

colonial buildings that exist in

Akaroa. We see them as a collection

and any threat to any one

is really an assault on the town’s

heritage atmosphere.”

While the city council has

managed it for the past 10 years

since absorbing the Banks

Peninsula District Council, Mr

Lowndes said their management

has been rudimentary.

“The council hasn’t been doing

enough to protect the cottage

and they’re just trying to get

it off their hands so they don’t

have to pay for it. The building

is flood-prone and a resident

has arranged to get a company

to raise the cottage pro bono,

which is a significant offer,” Mr

Lowndes said.

“The report said it will cost

about $200,000 to repair, which

isn’t out of court to bring it up

to standard I wouldn’t have

thought.”

Akaroa is home to around 280

colonial buildings.

The board has been given four

options to consider, including

selling it on the open market;

undertaking repairs and

establishing a public work for

the property; leasing the

property to a third party; or

gifting the property to a third

party.

A land covenant may also be

involved, which means the heritage

values of the cottage have to

be protected.

The trust has put forward a

proposal that the building and

property be retained for the use

of the Akaroa community and

surrounding area.

the fate of their proposed new

If the request is accepted, it

Filtration plan for Heathcote

• By Annabelle Dick

A PROPOSED $1.5 million

new filtration system could help

improve water quality in the

Heathcote River.

City council staff have presented

a report to the Infrastructure,

Transport and Environment

Committee which recommends

piloting a stormwater filtration

device.

The device would be installed

at a new pump station which

will be built next year on Richardson

Tce to reduce flooding in

Woolston.

Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai

Trust chairman Bill Simpson said

it was good to see the city council

trying to improve the Heathcote

catchment.

“It’s good news hearing this

will reduce zinc, copper and

heavy metals as well as general

contamination and sediments in

the waterway,” he said.

The Heathcote River catchment

recorded the poorest water

quality of the five catchments

sampled over the last two years.

The others sampled were

the Avon, Halswell, Styx and

Otukaikino rivers.

Zinc from tyres and copper

from brake pads that gets washed

off the roads when it rains is one

of the principal sources of contaminants,

along with sediment,

in the city’s waterways.

The filtration device was expected

to significantly reduce the

amount of contaminants entering

the Heathcote.

Figures suggested it could

reduce dissolved metals by up to

25 per cent and sediment by 40 to

50 per cent.

POOR

CONDITIONS: The

Heathcote River

catchment has

the worst water

quality out of all

five catchments

measured.

PHOTOS: GEOFF

SLOAN

But water quality isn’t the only

problem for the area, residential

waste has been plaguing the

banks and waterways for many

years.

In May this year close to 1300

people collected just over 20

tonnes of rubbish from the banks

of the Avon and Heathcote rivers

Mr Simpson said the trust was

one of several working groups

the problem didn’t seem to be

going away.

“I’ve seen plastic bags, condom

wrappers and bottle tops,” he

said.

“We’re not happy with

what’s been going into the

Community cleans

up esplanade

Sumner

Community

Residents’

Association

member

Michelle

Quin helped

organise the

community esplanade clean

up. She writes this week’s

soap box on keeping the

sea-side suburb tidy

On a stunning wintery Sunday

morning more than 40 people

turned out to take part in the

first of a series of city councilsupported

working bees. The

working bees, organised by the

Sumner Community Residents’

Association, aimed to tidy up and

maintain the gardens along the

Esplanade Reserve and walkway.

Under the guidance of experts

from the city council, the local

park rangers led the gardening

and tree pruning effort.

Residents were out in force,

as well as community board

member Sara Templeton,

councillor Paul Londsdale and

National MP Nuk Korako.

Gym members from F45, which

recently opened in Ferrymead,

also chipped in to lend three sets

of helping hands.

With two hours available, the

focus of the working bee was

on the Hardwicke St area of the

esplanade.

The collective passion and

community spirit saw results that

were immediate and positive.

Crews cleared pathways, pruned

trees, removed deadwood to allow

light and space in overgrown

areas as well as improve the

health of plants.

There is a master plan for

the gardens in the area and the

Sumner Community Residents’

Association is delighted to be

working closely with the council

to ensure ongoing maintenance

of these special gardens for the

benefit of all.

With each successive working

bee, a different area of the

esplanade will be given attention

so that the entire stretch is a

wonderful environment for

residents and visitors.

Thank you to all involved.

The next working bee will be in

September, with the date to be

confirmed.

A working bee at the Esplanade last weekend got the community out on the streets tidying up the

sea-side area. The clean up effort aimed to beautify the waterfront and prune overgrown plants

in the area. Residents, city councillors and community board members teamed up to make for a

succesful day.

MUCKING IN: Volunteers brought out their shovels

to tidy up the esplanade on Sunday morning.

COMMUNITY EFFORT: Community representatives

also gave a helping hand.

SHARING THE LOAD: Residents aimed to

beautify the main drag.

Cashless trading proves

popular in Ferrymead

• By Annabelle Dick

THE TIMEBANKING initiative

of paying for goods and services

with time is increasing in

popularity.

Ferrymead-based

Bridge2Rocks Timebank has seen

its membership double in the past

six months, and has welcomed its

100th member.

Members freely exchange

knowledge and resources in

exchange for a time credit.

Those credits can be used to

purchase someone else’s time,

knowledge or resources.

Bridge2Rocks TimeBank

coordinator Liz Kerslake said the

group is trying to recruit more

residents to join the TimeBank

strategy, which is aimed at building

strong, resilient communities.

“In June, Mt Pleasant School

signed up to the TimeBank and

have used the scheme to loan a

vintage bike,” she said.

“A member in Heathcote also

sourced a disco ball for her

daughter’s birthday and our

youngest member got help

making a ‘disgusting birthday

cake’.”

New probus group

• By Annabelle Dick

ROTARY IS pushing for a

probus club to be created to fulfil

a need in the Lyttelton area.

Rotary Probus chairman David

Drake said the area doesn’t

have a place for retirees and

semi-retirees to get together.

“We’re trying to survey the

need for one,” Mr Drake said.

There are probus clubs in Diamond

Harbour, Ferrymead and

Sumner, but none in Lyttelton.

The proposed group would

service the Lyttelton area and

also Governors Bay.

The club would be called the

Lyttelton Harbour Probus Club.

“Anybody can come along.

There’s a free ferry service from

Diamond Harbour to Lyttelton

for people with gold cards which

people in probus would have,”

Mr Drake said.

Probus clubs were started 42

years ago in Kapiti as a social

organisation for people who are

retired, semi-retired or soon-toretire.

“More and more people are

retiring nowadays so it would

be good to get one out there,” he

said.

Residents are being invited to

an interest meeting being held

today at Union Chapel Hall,

Winchester St at 1.30pm.

Thanks Canterbury

Our People

Singer-songwriter has

Sumner singer-songwriter Asti-Loren Newman might only be 18, but she has

already travelled the world and attended the same school as Amy Winehouse.

Annabelle Dick talked to Asti-Loren about her new album, Psychedelic Rose, and

getting barred from the school choir thanks to a questionable comment about her

teacher’s facial hair.

So as a singer-songwriter,

when did you get into music?

I’ve always had a massive

passion for music. When I was

about 11-years-old, I joined

the Christchurch City Chorus,

which is like a 150-person barbershop.

We went to New York

and sung when I was 13, which

was awesome. I worked with

Nolan from the Christchurch

School of Rock in Sumner and

would perform at the Headless

Mexican. I’d also do busking

along the esplanade.

I tried

TALENTED:

Asti-Loren

busked her way

through Europe at

17-years-old.

to join the school choir but got

turned down in year 6, 7 and 8,

because apparently I couldn’t

sing in tune, but I think it was

because I told my music teacher

she had a moustache in front of

the whole class. I told her my

mum is a beauty therapist and

she should go to her and I think

she held that against me. It was

a pretty rude thing for me to say,

but I was only nine-years-old at

the time, so I didn’t know any

better. I was pretty upset about

it so I went to the principal and

told them, ‘I’m setting up my

own barbershop; I’m getting my

own teacher to come and teach it

and I’m going to teach it as well’

and I had more people auditioning

for it than the school choir.

I’ve always been the kind of

person that, if things don’t go my

way, I’m going to make it happen

for myself.

You attended the same music

school as Amy Winehouse –

how did that come about?

When the February 2011

earthquake happened, I was off

school, our house was quite

damaged and my mum

lost her business as well. I

watched the film Fame one

day and I knew I wanted

to go to stage school.

So without telling my

parents, I researched the

best stage schools across

the United States and

the United Kingdom

and I randomly

chose one to

apply for.

I heard

MENTOR: Asti-Loren mentoring Selwyn House Girls School

children last year.

back four days later from the

Susi Earnshaw Theatre School

with a letter of acceptance. Here’s

14-year-old me going, ‘oh no,

what have I done’, so I had to tell

my parents and they were really

supportive. I don’t know many

parents who would let their

14-year-old daughter go to the

UK by themselves.

What was it like attending the

school?

It was awesome. I was the first

person they’d ever had from

Australia/New Zealand. There

was three days a week of dance,

tap, jazz singing, theatre singing,

pop singing, all sorts really. The

teachers were great and really

young, too. One of my teachers

was a back-up dancer for Justin

Bieber and he’d also won

Britain’s Got Talent. I studied

there for two years and then

I got offered a development

contract with a label

in Soho and that’s how I met

my producer Chris Hall who

helped me create my album

Psychedelic Rose. I got to record

in the same vocal booth as Pink

Floyd.

How did it feel living in London

by yourself as a 14-yearold?

That must’ve been a pretty

scary experience?

It wasn’t too scary . . . but

being so young and moving to

another country was a bit of a

culture shock. I had an apartment

just down from school and

I made friends really fast. There

was always people I knew around

me like my uncle in Sweden and

my cousin came through when

he was on his O.E. I wasn’t really

naughty I always had so much

to do. I would go to the London

Central City Library and read

books on Woodstock. I went

to an Audrey Hepburn exhibition

and I’d often go to the East

London markets at the end of

the day and they’d give me free

donuts. They knew when I was

coming and give me all this free

food and I’d walk home with all

my groceries.

the world at her feet

And you travelled a bit from

there?

I’m really spontaneous so I

decided to do a busking tour

around Europe. So I contacted

Interrail and Eurail to see if it

was something they were interested

in – they bought it. So they

gave us a 12-day rail pass and we

went from London to Stockholm

to Copenhagen down to Warsaw

in Poland and then to Prague

then Munich, Salzburg, Venice,

Asti, Monte Carlo, Nice and

then Amsterdam all in 12 days

with my best friend who’s a New

Zealand windsurfer. While this

was happening I was only 17. I

have about 50,000 fans online so

I’d post each day were I was and

I’d have all these people turn up

– I didn’t really expect it at all. I

made about €200 (euro) busking

in each city.

So tell me about your

music and your new album

Psychedelic Rock which you

recently released?

The music I’ve established as

my brand is more electronic.

This album is influenced by

the 60s and 70s Americana,

Woodstock and that whole

hippy movement. I love the

era. I watched Jim Carroll’s The

Basketball Diaries and read a

novel he wrote . . . it’s really raw.

This album draws a lot from that.

This album is a concept album

I’ve written myself. It goes from

dark to light as I have this thing

called synaesthesia where I see

music and colour so it helps a

lot with my writing, it’s a bit of

a blessing. I wrote the album’s

track names before I wrote the

songs. I’ve written a novel to

go along with the album and

eventually I want to make it into

a short film. People can interpret

my music any way they want.

They’re not pop songs – it’s a

lot more than that. I don’t just

sit back and let other people

do things for me, I’m a really

involved person in my career so

I do a lot of promoting myself,

I keep up my social media

following and I edit my own

videos.

Do you have any influences

that you draw on when creating

your sound?

I listen to Lana del Rey, The xx,

Haim, Taylor Swift, Marina and

the Diamonds, Fleetwood Mac,

PERFORMING: Asti-Loren’s new album Psychedelic Rose was released on Saturday.

The Zombies, Dire Straits and

Pink Floyd – a real variety really.

I’ve taken different influences

from the greats of each genre and

incorporated them into my work

– whether it’s lyrically, musically

or the way I present myself.

Tell me a bit about growing

up – what’s you’re family like?

I grew up in a house on the top

of Scarborough Hill. I went to

Selwyn House and then St Andrew’s

College. My mother owns

a salon Yazu Hair Salon. She’s

incredibly talented. She’s been

on the L’Oreal creative team and

a part of New Zealand Fashion

Week. She was actually teaching

hairdressing in Asia while

she was eight months pregnant

with me which was pretty crazy.

She’s heavily driven . . . I think

that’s where I get it from. My

mum and my dad met at 15 and

started the business together. He

was going to be a mechanic, but

he’s technically a hairdresser by

trade. They separated when I was

nine so he went to the Caribbean

to buy a boat and sailed it

back to New Zealand to set up a

charter business. So, when I was

younger, I grew up in a boat. I

lived on it in Diamond Harbour

and the Lyttelton marina. I used

to go to school in a dingy. We

had five dalmatian dogs and we’d

be in a five-metre dingy with one

of our dogs at the front and my

brother and I in our posh private

school uniforms. We’d sail from

Diamond Harbour to Lyttelton

and we’d arrive at school soaked.

My little brother Lucca is 16 and

he’s the total opposite of me. He’s

blue-eyed, blonde and tall, while

I’m 1.49m and brunette. We were

both named after towns in Italy.

He’s really into skiing, inventing

and downhill mountain biking.

He made a flame thrower the

other day. I have a weird family.

It sounds like you’ve had an

insanely interesting upbringing!

What else do you love

outside of music?

I love going to the beach and I

love skiing. I did ski racing from

about seven-years-old at Mt

Hutt. We used to go skiing every

single weekend in winter from

when I was seven to 12. I did it

competitively and placed third

in the South Island when I was

younger.

Where to next for you? Where

do you want to end up?

I’m going to the US to film

a music video for my album

next month, then London for

a month, Ho Chi Minh City in

Vietnam after that, and then Bali

all before the end of the year.

Eventually I want to be able to

tour with my albums. I’ve

started on my second album

which is going to be completely

different with a different vibe. To

be a musician as a full time job

is the goal. I’m always aiming

for the top, I’m just that kind of

person. I’ve always written for

bigger things because if you don’t

think you’re going to be big or

don’t have that in your mind,

how are you ever going to get

there?

The Black Widow by Daniel Silva

No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva delivers another spellbinding

international thriller - one that finds the legendary Gabriel Allon grappling with an

ISIS mastermind. A network of terror. A web of deceit. A deadly game of vengeance.

Legendary spy and art restorer Gabriel Allon is poised to become the chief of Israel’s

secret intelligence service. But on the eve of his promotion, events conspire to lure him

into the field for one final operation. ISIS has detonated a massive bomb in the Marais

district of Paris, and a desperate French government wants Gabriel to eliminate

the man responsible before he can strike again. They call him Saladin…

He is a terrorist mastermind whose ambition is as grandiose as his

nom de guerre, a man so elusive that even his nationality is not

known. Shielded by sophisticated encryption software, his network

communicates in total secrecy, leaving the West blind to his

planning-and leaving Gabriel no choice but to insert an agent into

the most dangerous terrorist group the world has ever known. The

Black Widow is a riveting thriller of shocking prescience. But it is

also a thoughtful journey into the new heart of darkness that will

haunt readers long after they have turned the final page. ‘Literate,

top-notch action’ Kirkus Reviews ‘Forget James Bond - Gabriel Allon is

the killer you’d want on your side’ Australian Women’s Weekly ‘Allon is a

great political operative, but Silva is an even greater writer’ Huffington Post.

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo

by Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer. Frank, fearless and so freaking funny. Her story. In her own words.

‘I’ve only had one one-night stand in my life. Yes, one. I know, I’m so sorry to

disappoint anyone who thinks I walk around at all times with a margarita in one hand

and a dildo in the other.’ In The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy shares stories

about her family, her relationships, her career, good – and bad – sex, recounting the

experiences that have shaped who she is today: from the riches to rags story of her

childhood to her teenage quest for popularity (and boys) to becoming one of the most

sought-after comedians on the planet and an outspoken advocate for women’s rights.

Whether she’s experiencing lust at first sight in the queue at the airport, discovering her

boot camp instructor’s secret bad habit, or candidly discussing her father’s multiple

sclerosis, Amy Schumer proves to be a fearless, original, and always entertaining

storyteller. Her book will move you, make you laugh, catch you completely off guard,

and answer this burning question: is it okay for a 35-year-old woman to still sleep

with her childhood teddy bears? “Amy’s got your back. She’s in your corner. She’s

an honesty bomb. And she’s coming for you.” - Actress Tilda Swinton, Trainwreck

co-star “A powerful feminist voice.” - Guardian “Equal parts naughty cheerleader,

self-deprecating Everywoman and fearless truth-teller, Ms. Schumer connects with

women and men alike.” - New York Times “Wickedly funny and brilliantly talented.

Amy Schumer is everything right now.” - Glamour

hear that the two residents had

been woken and escaped the

fire because of these people

who were not even known to

them. This relief was turned to

sadness when the news emerged

that a person had in fact died

in this fire. He was living –

unbeknownst to the two women

– in a shed at the back of the

otoring

property.

For me, it was a tragic reminder

of two things – firstly,

the need for people to be housed

in safe homes and secondly, the

need for us all to look out for

each other. This man lost his

life because he was not living in

a safe home and no one knew he

was there.

For those of us who are

fortunate enough to have

a home, we still need to do

everything we can to make our

homes as safe as possible. That

includes making sure that we

have smoke alarms and, if they

are not wired into your home,

that they have batteries that

work!

Some people find it helpful

to change batteries on a given

weekend – like Easter and Labour

weekend. I am amazed at

how many people hear the beeping

of a flat battery and take the

smoke alarm down and put it on

the bench with the battery out.

It won’t work like that!

We are so fortunate to have

our dedicated firefighters – both

volunteers and professional –

who use their skills and courage

day after day to rescue people

from fires. Let’s make their

job easier and our lives safer

by getting those smoke alarms

installed – with live batteries!

And thanks to all our firefighters

for all that you do – you

don’t do it for thanks but you

certainly deserve it!

Take care of each

other on the waters

• BY GARY MANCH,

NAVIGATIONAL SAFETY OFFICER,

LYTTELTON

AS I am sitting at my desk

writing this article, the winter

has arrived, there is a dusting

of snow on Mt Herbert and it’s

raining, but the funny thing is,

the harbour is still a beautiful

place even on the cold miserable

days.

For those of you, who are

hardy enough to carry on boating

throughout the year, remember

to wear appropriate warm

and waterproof clothing. Cold

weather can affect your body in

different ways. Your body can

also lose heat faster than you can

produce it.

The result is hypothermia,

or abnormally low body temperature.

It can make you sleepy,

confused and clumsy. Because

it happens gradually and affects

your thinking, you may

not realize you need help. That

makes it especially dangerous.

Anyone who spends much time

outdoors in cold weather can get

hypothermia.

So if you are out on the boat,

keep an eye on each other and

if you see the conditions I have

mentioned, get the person into a

sheltered area, keep them warm

and dry and seek medical help

urgently.

During the winter, my job

changes slightly and I spend

more time catching up on

paper work from the summer,

completing maintenance of our

signs, buoys and posts throughout

the region, so they are spick

and span for the oncoming

season, some of our signs are

getting a little old, and I can

assure you there is a replacement

programme in progress for

them, we have put off some work

until the current Navigation

Safety Bylaw review is complete,

as I certainly do not want to be

spending ratepayers’ money on

signage, only to have to replace

it again with a sign that reflects

changes, if any to the new bylaw.

If you are out and about and

do see a sign that relates to our

Navigation Safety Bylaws, that

has been damaged or vandalised,

please let me know so I can

arrange a replacement.

Lastly as I am in a

philosophical moment,

remember this “someone who

views the world the same at 50 as

he did at 20, has wasted 30 years

of their life,” (Muhmmad Ali).

Be careful out there.

A reader responds to a

letter from another reader

regarding littering and dog

faeces issues at Lyttelton

Recreation Ground

News

Cherry Daly:

In response to Joanne

Dunningham regarding dogs in

public areas.

I am fascinated to know just

precisely how Ms Dunningham

and her ilk would like dog

owners to clean up after their dog

urinates in the park (or anywhere

else for that matter). Tiny catheter

bags, perhaps? And while we’re at

Fashion

it, what about colostomy bags for

all dogs so their owners have to

clean up after them?

Facetious, yes! And I clean up

after my dog scrupulously and

often collect other dog’s leavings as

well and, yes, I do find it frustrating

that people won’t clean up after

their dogs. But personally I think

Gardening

that dogs are absolutely entitled to

equal time in parks as children –

they are beloved family members

just the same and entitled to

exercise and play in the open air as

are the human variety. And believe

me I have seen children perform

their natural functions in parks as

well – I hope my dog doesn’t catch

anything!

Motoring

This is a light-hearted letter

about a serious problem, and I

am not talking about dogs and

their functions. I think people are

far too precious about their little

angels these days – I would like

a dollar for every dog dropping I

stepped into as a child and I seem

to have attained the age of 58

quite healthily! If that is the worst

thing that ever happens to your

child, consider yourself lucky in

this day and age.

There will always be dogs and

people who love dogs in society

and long may they all prosper, in

spite of the haters.

A reader responds to

Eugenie Sage’s column

Robert Patterson:

I fail to reconcile with the

eastern vision on the future of the

Avon River residential red zone as

mentioned by Eugenie Sage.

What with global warming, the

loss of the land for open space

which could be better used for

agriculture/horticulture etc. All

what they are proposing will create

more problems let alone costs

to the ratepayers than they would

have imagined.

What’s required is a decentsized

channel for sporting

and recreational use, with the

excavation spoils creating stop

banks as walkways, landscaped

in exotics which have far more

character and pleasing to the

eye rather than natives, where

nothing grows under them but

mosquitoes, vermin, dumping

ground for rubbish etc, even

bodies.

Also with global warming the

last thing we want is swamps full

of the likes of mosquitoes.

This is Christchurch and

Canterbury, is it not.

A reader responds to last

week’s article on the Moa

Cave pedestrian access

Chelsea Halliwell:

I’m just reading your article in

Bay Harbour News about the Moa

Cave footpath, I was pleased to

read that other residents are also

concerned, and I really don’t thing

it’s good enough that there will

not be a safe access point for the

many children who get to school

that way.

I sent the email below to the

city council last week after talking

to their call centre, but I haven’t

heard back. This is a real concern

for those of us with young children

who will need to cross that road,

particularly as there are sunstrike

issues on that road for much of the

year in the afternoon.

With the amount of remediation

work currently being

undertaken on the rocks above

that footpath, it won’t take much

more to reinstate the footpath.

Take a look at the work being

done for Peacocks Gallop for an

example of what is possible in the

name of safety.

The residual risk would be

all but removed but the risk of

crossing that busy road will be

real every day. Thanks for your

support.

Rotary award for

Sumner lifesaver

• By Barbara Crooks

ONE OF Sumner’s brightest

surf lifesavers has earned a

major Rotary award for his

leadership and role-modelling

skills.

Ferrymead Rotary presented

Seb Johnson with a Yong Totara

award in recognition of his

leadership in the Sumner Surf

Lifesaving Club, and in the surf

lifesaving movement.

He is involved in the training

and development of junior lifesavers

and is recognised as an

excellent role model. He is also

a peer leader at his secondary

school.

Seb has been chosen in

New Zealand’s 12-strong (six

males and six females) team to

compete in the world under-19

surf lifesaving championships

in the Netherlands.

The Young Totara award is an

initiative of Rotary New Zealand.

Rotary clubs are encouraged

to seek out young people

who display strength of character,

courage of conviction, care

of community and pursuit of

excellence. Rotary believes that

WELL-EARNED: Ferrymead

Rotary president Kathryn

Tovgaard and Russell Irving,

with Seb Johnson at the

presentation of his Young

Totara award. ​

recognising young people with

these qualities can promote and

encourage positive role models

for their peers.

As well as a certificate,

recipients receive a totara tree

which is seen as an appropriate

symbol of leadership and

strength. The totara is one of

New Zealand’s largest native

trees, and its timber was prized

by Maori as the best for building

their massive war canoes.

Maori also speak of the totara

and its common ancestry with

the people. They consider it a

living elder and therefore, a

sacred tree symbolising respect.

James St Pre-school had a very exciting morning last Friday when they inspected bugs. One

pupil’s parent, Regan Courtney, came to pre-school to talk about his job. He is an entomologist,

and he brought several insect displays for the children to look at. These displays contained a

huge variety of bugs, ranging from lady-bugs, mosquitos and monarch butterflies to a tarantula

and an enormous moth. Mr Courtney also brought a container with mosquito larva in water, and

all the children were given the opportunity to suck a larva out of the water with a pipet and squirt

it in a small jar. The children got to take their little jars home so they could watch the larva turn

into a mosquito.

Rower off to world champs

NEW HEIGHTS: Our Lady Star of the Sea’s year 7 and 8

rugby team is taking their grade by storm having only lost

one of their matches this season. The team is made up of an

assortment of talented hockey, soccer, ice hockey and rugby

players. At the beginning of the year many of these boys had

never played rugby before but wanted the chance to play

together in the same team at the Canterbury Primary Rugby

competition each Friday.

VICTORIOUS: The Ferrymead Bays masters division 1 football

team, Baby Blues, took out the league competition. This

season, they played 16, won 13, drew 2, lost 1, with a goal

difference of 40 goals.

• By Annabelle Dick

A LITTLE River resident

will travel to Rotterdam,

Netherlands, to compete

in an international rowing

championship this month.

Jack Lopas, 17, will compete as

part of the double sculls team.

“Both my parents, uncles and

grandad rowed so I got into it

through them. My grandad and

dad took me out on a single one

day to have a go and I really

enjoyed so it went from there,”

Jack said.

He started rowing at 14 and

moved from Lincoln High

School to Christchurch Boys’

High School and joined the rowing

squad soon after.

There he teamed up with

fellow student Angus Foster to

create a title-winning duo.

“This year at club nationals

we won the under-19 double

sculls and at Maadi we won the

under-18 double. There we were

also a part of teams that won

the under-18 quad and placed

third in the under-18 eight,” Jack

said.

He also won the under-18 single

and was selected to trial with

the New Zealand junior rowing

squad.

During his trial, he managed

to beat Olympic medallist Hamish

Bond’s 2km rowing machine

record he set while trialling for

the New Zealand squad.

“The record was 6.03 seconds

and I got 5.57 seconds,” he said.

STROKE OF SUCCESS: Jack Lopas, 17, is off to an international

rowing championship this month. ​

This is the second time he’s

made the junior team having

been selected last year, but he

and Angus only made it as the

reserve duo for the competing

duo.

“It was an experience but we

were in as reserves. But this year,

we’re the top double so it’s a

chance to go out there and

do the best we can. We’ve got

good potential this year,” Jack

said.

He trains at least seven times a

week often peaking at 12 trainings

a week.

His schedule consists of lots of

early mornings, gym sessions,

on-water trainings and rowing

machines.

“It’s very intense.”

Jack and Angus will fly out

this Friday in preparation for the

competition taking place August

21-28.

“It’s pretty exciting. It’s been

quite a long time coming and

we’re definitely ready for this.”

Music-inspired design takes award

Gardening

• By Annabelle Dick

A GOVERNORS Bay resident’s

collection based on a Miles

Davis album has taken away

top spot in menswear design at

the Hokonui Fashion Design

Awards with his jazz-influenced

collection.

Will Roper, 19, of Ara Institute

Motoring

of Canterbury, entered two looks

into the menswear category the competition Gore at the

weekend.

The fashion school’s secondyear

students swept up all the

awards for the menswear section

with Pera-Kate May, second,

Rachel Bell, third, and Merrin

Tasty

Mortimer, fourth.

Bites

Mr Roper said it was a big

shock and he was really stoked

with the result.

“I was really surprised, I’ve

never won any awards,” he said.

His winning look was a pair of

mid-calf, tailored trousers with a

double pleated front, turtle neck

jumper and oversized doublebreasted

wool suit jacket.

Money

His collection ‘Sanctuary’

is based Miles Davis’ 1970

album ‘Bitches Brew’.

In the late 60s-early 70s Davis

started to move away from pure

jazz that made him famous and

he started to experiment with

different sounds.

“He was one of the first people

to add different instruments into

jazz so when people think of jazz

they think of horns, saxophones,

drums and double bass - but he

added in electric guitars, marimbas,

synthesizers and all different

sorts of things,” Mr Roper said.

“His music still took its influence

from jazz but it’s not jazz

anymore it’s something different

he created. I wanted to take the

same concept and apply it to

tailoring – tailoring is a very

traditional aspect of clothing

just like jazz and they’re both

considered quite fancy. I wanted

to add new media to my clothes

like he added new instruments

to his music.”

Mr Roper has a big love for

music, art history, psychology

and science - he often draws on

his interests by including aspects

of them in the collections he

creates.

His next collection is based on

Miles Davis’ 1959 album ‘Kind

of Blue’ where he experiments

with the colour blue, blues

music, modern artists use of blue

and comfort wear.

He is also reading a paper on

abstract algebra which he hopes

to draw on for future looks.

“I think that would be really

cool to apply to a collection. I

want to have all the patterns and

measurements have significance

like have all the measurements

be the golden ratio or pi.”

Mr Roper is in his second year

at Ara’s fashion school gaining a

Bachelor of Design.

He hopes to create his own

label in the future.

HealTH & BeauTY

Keeping TracK

Of YOur HealTH

Lets take a look at the new fitness sensation Fitbit. What is it and

how does it work? Most importantly,

how do we incorporate it into our fitness regime?

Fitbit consists of a family of products

designed to track every part of your day

– including activity, exercise, food, weight

and sleep – to help you stay motivated,

and see how small steps make a big

impact. There’s something for every taste,

budget and technical requirement from

the everyday category of wrist bands to

performance-specific watches.

All Fitbit products track steps, distance,

calories burned and active minutes. All

but the most basic Fitbit also track sleep

patterns. At the performance end of the

range you’ll also have access to things

like heart rate and GPS tracking. All of

the products feature wireless syncing and

online and mobile tools, such as the Fitbit

app to help track your exercise, sleep,

hydration and food, and connect with

friends.

Seeing your progress can really help

you realise what’s possible, and investing

in a Fitbit may help to take you on the

next step of your health and fitness

journey.

Fitbit was built on the premise that

fitness is not just about gym time; it’s

about all the time. So, it can be a great

addition to your fitness regime.

There are many things to consider when choosing a

health and fitness regime to follow through with.

for example:

• What type of exercise to choose: indoor, outdoor or a mixture of both? Running, walking,

cycling, swimming, yoga, pilates, dancing, group fitness, a team sport, or something else?

• Who to exercise with: just yourself, with a buddy, in a group, or to enlist the help of a

personal trainer?

• What nutrition guidelines to follow: enlist the help of a nutritionist, or just cut back on

processed food, for example?

• Balance: how will you ensure you get a good balance of enough rest and recovery as well as

the right frequency, duration and intensity of exercise?

• Motivation: how will you motivate yourself to get out the door in the first place?!

Professional advice from a registered exercise professional should always be your first port

of call. They can help get you set up with an appropriate personalised programme, help you

with exercise techniques, and help you stay accountable to your goals.

Once you’re in the swing of things you may find you want some extra assistance to ramp

up your progress towards your goals. investing in a Fitbit could help you to achieve this,

especially if you’re a ‘details’ person who likes to be well organised and able to measure

progress from

each and every workout. Similarly, if you find you’re in a bit of a rut and could do with a

mini accountability ‘buddy’, then a Fitbit could be

just the ticket.

Experts restore that

“winning smile”

Meeting people for the first

time, interacting with others on social

occasions, going for a job interview – in

all these situations your smile is the most

important part of you.

or perhaps, on a lighter note, you

might be scaring yourself with your ‘selfie’

because your smile is not as attractive as it

should be, due to missing or broken teeth.

perhaps it’s time for a visit to Denture

South in Barrington, where the experts

can give you that winning smile back.

Clinical technician Andrew Johnson

and his team of clinical and lab

technicians are fully focused on providing

customised service at their Barrington

clinic, and will take all the time needed

to fulfill your partial or full denture

requirements whether you want an even,

bright smile or a more natural-looking

one.

For people who have had dentures for a

while and are finding they frequently need

to buy denture adhesive to keep them in

place, Andrew advises having the dentures

relined so they will fit better. As he points

out, the money spent on denture adhesive

over 12 months would easily cover the

cost of having your dentures refitted.

Denture South has been providing a full

range of denture services for the residents

of Christchurch for over 13 years. These

services include first-time immediate

dentures, full replacement dentures,

partial plates and sports mouth-guards.

Many Denture South clients come

through word-of-mouth referral, an

indication of the level of satisfaction that’s

provided there. Friendly, approachable

and highly skilled, the Denture South

team enjoys helping people with all their

denture fitting, ongoing care and denture

maintenance requirements.
