Residents want better

police coverage in port

• By Annabelle Dick

Heathcote Valley

FRUSTRATED Lyttelton

residents want more police

presence to deter burglars and

thieves.

Residents Brett Partel and Paul

Dietsche addressed the Lyttelton-Mt

Herbert Community

Board last week after hearing

concerns from other people

about the increase in crime in

the port.

Mr Partel had his trailer stolen

from his Cressy Tce property in

July and said he knows of another

five trailers that have been

taken from the area.

Mr Dietsche said residents

have told him about vandalism

and fuel siphoning from cars,

and work vehicles that have had

tools stolen from them.

“It’s worrisome – we love living

here and we love the community

so we want to see if something

can be done,” Mr Dietsche said.

They want police on call in

Lyttelton outside of the current

8am-5pm Monday to Friday coverage,

and CCTV cameras placed

in the port.

Police from Christchurch cover

the area outside of the hours

above.

Five officers and a supervisor

are based at Lyttelton.

The pair want police to pour

more resources into the community

and see CCTV cameras

installed to deter burglars.

“I see not having a full-time

police station as being an issue,

I can’t get hold of them, when I

have issues I have to phone up

central to get put through to

Lyttelton police. They don’t answer

the phone, they don’t return

messages,” Mr Partel said.

Senior Sergeant Stephen

McDaniel told the community

board police had to stick to

budgets when allocating resources.

He said police from

Christchurch can easily attend

when Lyttelton-based police

couldn’t.

Senior Sergeant McDaniel

suggested introducing CPTED

(Criminal prevention through

environmental design) to the

area which involves retrofitting

the town to make it less susceptible

to crime.

London St businesses including

Civil & Naval, The Shroom

Room and Lyttelton Coffee

Company are just a few of several

businesses who have been burgled

in the past few months.

Shroom Room staff member

Lisa Isbiter said the cafe was hit

twice two months ago and a till

was stolen which contained a

year’s tip collection.

Civil & Naval had two kegs

of beer stolen from their site on

July 27.

Owner Louis Dyer said there’s

a security system installed but

the kegs were situated out back

away from the camera’s view.

Senior Sergeant McDaniel said

residents could help themselves

by not becoming easy targets for

burglars and thieves, like hiding

trailers from sight, and locking

BURGLARY VICTIM: Civil & Naval owner Louis

Dyer says opportunists are taking advantage

of local businesses. Residents want to see the

doors.

“There’s a lot of opportunists

out there – a lot of people

who commit crimes aren’t out

there to do it, they just see the

opportunity and take it,” Senior

Sergeant McDaniel said.

The community board is looking

to install a mobile camera to

move around crime hot spots.

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News.............3, 4, 5, 6 & 10

THe police have a tough job and

the community should, and do,

get behind the boys, and girls, in

blue who generally do a sterling

job.

But there are grumbles in

Lyttelton because people there

don’t think they are getting the

service they need (see page 1).

There has been a spate of thefts

and burglaries in the past year,

which prompted residents Brett

Partel and Paul Dietsche to go

to the Lyttelton-Mt Herbert

Community Board to air their

concerns.

They want police based in the

bays area seven days a week.

And they don’t seem to return

calls either – to the Bay Harbour

News anyway. We tried to get

Lyttelton police to respond to a

number of questions for this issue

– but they haven’t called back.

The residents probably have a

good case. – Barry Clarke

High levels of air pollution

• By Annabelle Dick

AN AIR quality report shows

there has been a spike in air

pollution in Lyttelton during

winter.

The Environment Canterbury

report, which measured gases

and particles, showed an

increase in PM10 and PM2.5

particles.

ECan measured air quality

daily from January 2016 and

results showed that PM10 levels

breached the National Environmental

Standard four times in

June.

PM10 are coarse particles that

often come from dust and sea

salt and in high concentrations,

can cause respiratory health

problems including coughing,

wheezing, asthma attacks and

bronchitis.

The report also showed PM2.5

levels were over the World

Health Organisation’s guideline

four times in June as well.

PM2.5 are fine particles that

come from combustion sources

like woodburners and vehicles

and are considered more severe.

These particles can reach the

deepest region of the lungs and

short term exposure in high

amounts can worsen lung and

heart conditions and increase

deaths and hospital admissions.

ECan senior air quality analyst

Teresa Aberkane said the

spike in PM levels might have to

do with weather conditions.

“We do see coarse particles all

time – just not the exceedances.

They happen when there’s very

little wind and Lyttelton is calm

over winter so it might just be

something that happens during

that season,” Ms Aberkane said.

Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community

Board chairwoman

Paula Smith asked ECan specialists

if they were concerned

about the frequency of high

levels.

“It’s unusual – I haven’t come

across a situation like this before,”

Ms Aberkane said.

Concentrations of gases and

particles are measured every

minute along with wind and

temperature at a site on Norwich

Quay.

ECan analysts believe the pollution

could be related to road

usage.

“We’re not sure what the

source is . . . it could possibly be

movements on the road picking

up dust,” Ms Aberkane said.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency’s updated Lyttelton

Tunnel Bylaw comes into affect

on September 1 and ECan staff

believe this should have an effect

WOES: PM

levels have

on the poor air quality readings.

The changes mean that vehicles

transporting loose material

like sand, soil or fertiliser must

be covered both before and after

load delivery to reduce dust and

dirt in the tunnel.

The air quality analysts expect

the bylaw will mean a drop in

particular matter in Lyttelton

and will publish the results in

their next quarterly report.

Nitrogen dioxide, sulphur

dioxide and carbon monoxide

concentrations were also measured

and were well below the

National Environmental Standards

for air quality and Ambient

Air Quality Guidelines.

In Brief

WOMAN INJURED IN CRASH

A woman was left with minor

injuries after a crash in Charteris

Bay on Monday. The car hit a

bank and was the only vehicle

involved.

NEW SITE FOR MUSEUM

Lyttelton Historical Museum

Society will be gifted a city

council site to build a new

museum. The society made a

deputation to the city council

alongside the Lyttelton-Mt

Herbert Community Board

which resulted in a principle

decision to gift the land to the

museum society after its building

was lost in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake. The society will build

on the old service centre site at

33 London St after a final report

with the decision is created.

FREEDOM CAMPER BYLAW

The city council is asking for

public feedback on proposed

changes to the Freedom Camping

Bylaw. The amended bylaw

proposes to ban all non-selfcontained

freedom camping

throughout the district but the

law would allow certified selfcontained

camping without a

time restriction in rural zones.

Public feedback on the proposal is

being sought until September 15,

and a full review of the bylaw is

scheduled for next year.

Three-way battle for Heathcote seat

• By Annabelle Dick

COMPETITION will be fierce

for the lone city council seat

in the Heathcote

Ward.

Sara Templeton

(Strong Communities

for a Stronger

Christchurch, left),

Paul Lonsdale

(Independent, left)

and Malcolm Davis

(Independent) are

all vying for the

new Heathcote seat

on the city council.

Cr Lonsdale

currently represents the Hagley-

Ferrymead Community Board

Elections 16

on the city council, Mrs Templeton

is the board’s chairwoman

and Mr Davis is a newcomer to

local government.

The Heathcote Ward is a part

of the newly-formed Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board that was introduced after

the Local Government Commission’s

representation review.

The Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board has been disestablished.

Darrell Latham (Independent),

Tim Lindley (For Communities

You’ll Love To Live In), Rosemary

Neave (The People’s Choice

– Independent), Una O’Grady

(The People’s Choice) and Craig

positions on the Heathcote area

of the community board.

Meanwhile, Banks Peninsula

representation has also been

shaken up with the Lyttelton-Mt

Herbert Community Board

and the Akaroa-Wairewa Community

Board joining forces to

create one board.

The competiton for the Banks

Peninsula area is a lot slimmer

with Andrew Turner claiming

the council seat by default.

The newly-formed Banks

Peninsula Community Board

will home four community

subdivisions to represent the

different areas within the

area.

In the Lyttelton subdivision,

Jed O’Donoghue and Christine

vacancies.

In the Mt Herbert subdivision,

Felix Dawson (Independent) and

John McLister will claim the two

available spots.

Tori Peden will fill the one

position available on the

Wairewa subdivision of the

board.

But there will be competition

in the Akaroa subdivision with

Janis Haley, Keith Molloy and

Pam Richardson competing for

the two vacancies.

Voting is by postal ballot with

forms being sent out on September

16, the polls close at noon on

October 8.

St John calls for help

TRACK

• By Annabelle Dick

THE ST John Banks Peninsula

area chairman is trying to

recruit residents to help in

frontline emergency services.

Pete Dawson made a deputation

to the Lyttelton-Mt Herbert

Community Board to ask for

their support in getting the

community involved in paramedic

services.

Drivers and people willing

to be trained in emergency

responses are being sought.

Lyttelton had their two

ambulances taken from the area

in 2014 and earlier this year to

fulfil a need for more emergency

services in the city centre.

The area now has a fourwheel-drive

first response unit

to treat patients on the ground

before they’re backed up by an

ambulance.

Mr Dawson isn’t upset about

the ambulances being removed,

as the city needs them more

than the harbour area does.

“The workload is such around

the city that there’s no

justification for it to be in

Lyttelton where there isn’t a big

workload. They can be dealt

with by an ambulance in the

city or by a first response unit,”

he said.

FIRST RESPONSE: St John is asking for residents’ help after Lyttelton’s two ambulances were

replaced by a four-wheel-drive unit.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

The first response vehicle acts

as an ambulance but cannot

transport patients to the city.

But Mr Dawson said there’s

no staff to drive the unit and

administer first aid to residents

and now he’s campaigning for

community participation.

“We’ve got the vehicle but

not the people. Lyttelton can be

completely isolated and we feel

the community needs some sort

of response because if there’s

Sara TEMPLETON

• The latest Representation Review has

divided the city into 16 wards, each with

a single councillor. This was in response

to the call by residents for better access

to their representatives.

• Our city needs councillors who

live in and are connected to their

wards, are experienced leaders,

good listeners and believe in public

service. I am one of those people

and need your vote to do this work.

an accident and no one can get

there, there needs to be people

within Lyttelton who can help,”

Mr Dawson said.

St John cannot pay for staff

as paid staff moved when the

ambulances went to the city.

Mr Dawson said instead

St John will give people full

training, ongoing support and

uniforms and there’s no cost to

the volunteer.

He said he’s doing this to keep

the resource within the community

to make sure an emergency

response is as close as possible.

“We want to make sure that St

John can continue its long history

of saving lives in Lyttelton

by going to the community

and saying ‘we’re here to help

you but you’ve got to help us as

well’,” he said.

St John has been serving Lyttelton

and Banks Peninsula for

more than 100 years.

In Brief

IMPROVEMENT

Gravel has been laid on the Mt

Vernon farm mountain bike

track in the Port Hills to make

it usable for residents. A spell of

warm and dry weather allowed

city council rangers to fix the

track near Summit Rd, which was

badly worn down in places and in

need of maintenance. The rangers

are responsible for recreation

management in 40 reserves on the

Port Hills and 90 different tracks

that have 1.2 million visits each

year.

RESTORATION TOUR

The McCormacks Bay Reserve

Estuary Trust will provide a free

guided tour of the reserve to show

off the latest restoration work.

Trust coordinator Tanya Jenkins

has organised the tour on August

29 at 10.15am to show residents

the work recently undertaken

by the Mt Pleasant volunteer

team. The tour will commence

from the temporary Mt Pleasant

Community Centre. Morning tea

will be provided. If you would

like to come along, please email

coordinator@mpcc.org.nz

DYERS RD DELAYS

Road works on Dyers Rd may

cause delays for residents. The two

lanes have been maintained but

temporary speed limits will be in

place so expect slow traffic at peak

times.

birds thrive?

Great Hall icon restored

A Mt Pleasant resident has

put the final touches on

the city’s most iconic piano

after it was damaged in

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake. Annabelle

Dick reports

WYTZE HOEKSTRA has tuned

the restored Steinway & Sons

piano that sat in the Great Hall

at the Christchurch Arts Centre.

It’s been repaired following

damage sustained when a block

of masonry fell from the ceiling

crushing the music rack.

Mr Hoekstra said it was an

emotional moment to see it

again after he spent 15

years tuning it prior to the

quake.

“It’s very special to see it fully

restored and on stage,” he said.

“Steinways are a beautiful

instrument and there’s been

many fond memories in the

Great Hall associated with that

piano.”

The earthquakes damaged

many grand pianos and concert

venues, which meant Steinways

had to be shared among the arts

community.

“Concert grand (pianos) travel

around the city and are shared

said.

He owns and runs Hoekstra

Pianos in Ferrymead, which is

the only piano shop in the South

Island, and he is one of only two

qualified piano tuners in the city.

The Netherlands native has

been tuning pianos for more

than 35 years and it only

takes him about an hour to

tune more than 200 individual

strings.

The piano made its return

debut last Thursday at the

St Andrew’s College jazz concert.

amount of our work focused on roads.

Our roading work largely involves fixing where we have dug down to repair and replace

the earthquake damaged pipes beneath. The result may look a little patchy but we repair

roads to a reliable and serviceable standard.

The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the

city's earthquake-damaged roads after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood

• The Beachville Road Seawall in Redcliffs is now complete with the roading due to finish

next month.

• Watermain repairs are progressing well in Governors Bay and will be completed this

month.

• Lyttelton is still busy with ongoing retaining wall repairs which are due to be completed in

September, underground pipe and roading repairs will continue through in the area to the

end of the year.

• Your support is helping us to get the job done, thank you from the SCIRT team.

Our People

Programmes manager brings

Naval Point Club Lyttelton programmes manager

David Noakes has only been at his new job for a

month. Before that he worked for Environment

Canterbury, Department of Conservation and as an

outdoor education teacher. Fraser Walker-Pearce

talks to him about leading safaris across Africa,

having Manchester United player Lee Sharpe as a

cousin, and shooting travel pictures for the Sunday

Telegraph

Why did you take on the job at

the Naval Point Club Lyttelton?

One of the things we haven’t

been good at is connecting with

our immediate community. We

have 1000 members and some

local people don’t even know

where our clubhouse is. We need

to raise the profile of the club

also. There’s a lot going on down

there, but we haven’t had anyone

to make the most of that.

How long have you been on

the job?

I’ve only been here for a

month. We’ve finally recognised

the need to embrace other water

users than sailors. We’re pushing

for boating, jet skis, canoeing,

kayaking, everything.

Can you explain your new

role?

I’m responsible for the

promotion, management and

support of all activities for

sailors, waka ama, power boats,

stand-up paddle boarders,

windsurfers, swimmers and

other water based activities. I

develop and promote junior

programmes and also manage

the club’s instructors. I’ve

been here for a month exactly

now.

And what were you doing

before that?

I was at Environment

Canterbury. I was compliance

and monitoring, I ran a group

of monitors who used to go out

and do all the monitoring for

Canterbury. I resigned in May

and came here. I was no longer

enjoying the job and wanted to

try something new. We were the

police for ECan. Nobody phones

me up in the middle of the night

saying my neighbour has a fire

going on next door, which is

nice. Before that I had a number

of jobs, including being a travel

photographer for the Sunday

Telegraph with my partner at the

time.

You’re an MBA and a FRGS,

what does that mean?

I’ve got a masters degree in

business administration. I come

with a business background.

I’ve been lucky with that really,

because it’s so general I can

pretty much go anywhere with

it. You may have picked up from

the British accent that I’m not a

fully-fledged Kiwi, although I do

have my Kiwi passport.

wealth of experience to job

Good, that’s what we like to

hear.

Strangely, what I’ve found

in New Zealand is that my

qualification isn’t particularly

great, which was a surprise.

In America and the United

Kingdom you can’t get your foot

in the door without an MBA.

Maybe the New Zealanders are

more relaxed about it, I don’t

know. The FRGS means that I’m

a Fellow of the Royal Geographic

Society. And that’s because of my

nine years in the military. I was

in the British military and also

the French Foreign Legion. I was

a paratrooper there.

What did you do after that?

I went into outdoor education,

so ended up working for

Outward Bound in New

Zealand, Britain and Africa, and

working with lots of schools

around the world. And that’s

what made me go to Africa. I led

expeditions, 10-week expeditions

in special trucks. Free camping,

tents, animals, drinking, all that

good stuff.

What did you do when you

came to New Zealand?

I went to work for DoC on

Raoul Island, which is the

northern-most island owned

by New Zealand. I worked as a

WAKA AMA: The Naval Point Club Lyttelton’s new programme manager David Noakes is looking

to expand the club into different sports such as waka ama.

team leader which was one of the

highlights of my career so far. It’s

the second largest marine in the

world, and it’s an active volcano.

When did you decide to settle

down and get a normal job?

I was living in Havelock North

for a while, and then saw this

job advertised on the internet.

I thought it looked really

interesting and wanted to be

involved in the rebuild. After the

work with ECan, I moved down

with my former partner and our

10-year-old daughter and, no

regrets, absolutely none.

Did your partner at the time

and your daughter enjoy it

down here?

My ex-partner goes back and

forth from Amsterdam and every

time she comes back she tells me

how good it is to be back here,

they both love it. They both want

to stay.

Do you have family still in

England?

Yes, my father and sister are

still there. They’ve got that great

fighting British spirit.

How many countries have

you lived in?

I grew up in Malaysia in

the 1960s, just outside Kuala

Lumpur. I spent my formative

years there, then went to

Germany and Belgium and then

Cyprus. So I got back to England

as a 13-year-old and joined the

army at age 15. I was accepted at

17, then off I went to Germany,

lots of countries in Africa, then

Central America, got married in

Australia and now I’m here.

So it’s fair to say the only

continent you haven’t been to is

Antarctica?

Apart from South America

yes. I’d actually love to spend a

winter in Antarctica, that’s on my

bucket list. What an adventure

that would be.

What schools did you go to?

Yes. Most of them were

‘military’ schools. They weren’t

military schools where you

learn to be a soldier, it was for

the children of soldiers in the

army. Then eventually I went to

the University of Manchester

and the University of Waikato,

and completed my masters in

Liverpool.

So if you’re from all over

effectively, do you have a

football team that you support?

Yes, Chelsea. But the

Chelsea from the 1970s when

you could actually pronounce

all of the players’ names, unlike

today.

That would have been

interesting when you were in

Manchester and Liverpool?

The whole household are

Manchester United fans because

of my cousin Lee Sharpe.

Your cousin is Lee Sharpe?

Yes. He’s a great lad. He’s still

over in England but we’re trying

to bring him out here.

What are your hobbies?

I’ve kind of fallen off

photography nowadays. My

biggest passion is my 10-year-old

girl. But my biggest interest

now is getting this yacht club

rocking. We’ve got so much to

offer, so it’s my job to get that

happening.

Thanks Canterbury

for your continued support

Tunnel cycleway idea

gains momentum

• By Tom Doudney

A SUGGESTION that the

Lyttelton Tunnel’s ventilation

shaft could be opened up to

cycle and pedestrian traffic is

generating some interest among

local cyclists.

The idea was floated by

Hillsborough resident Simon

Dyer who said many people like

himself would like to cycle to

Lyttelton and the surrounding

bays but weren’t up to going over

the hill.

“That tunnel is almost under

utilised in so much as having a

nice thoroughfare through there

for bikes. I think the technical

challenge is exciting,” Mr Dyer

said.

New Zealand Transport

Agency maintenance contract

manager Barry Stratton said the

idea of a cycleway through the

shaft had been raised before and

was ruled out.

“The dual ventilation shaft

system within the Lyttelton Tunnel

– in the ceiling area above

the road tunnel – relies upon

two large metal bulkhead doors

in the middle of the tunnel to

build the pressure needed for the

ventilation exhaust removal and

fresh air system to work,” Mr

Stratton said.

“Without these bulkhead

doors, which effectively cut the

tunnel into two halves, there will

be no ventilation system.”

Cashmere resident Roger

Woods said he had suggested

the same idea four years ago but

dropped it after he and Deputy

Mayor Vicki Buck, who wasn’t

on the city council at the time,

BOLD VISION:

Hillsborough

resident Simon

Dyer supports

a cycleway

through the

Tunnel.

visited the shaft and realised the

challenges.

While he believed the technical

problems could be solved, it

was likely to be expensive and

unlikely to be a popular route

due to noise and vibrations from

the traffic below. Health and

safety in the event of a fire or

some other accident in the tunnel

would also be a concern.

Traffic engineer Glen Koorey

said Spokes Canterbury had also

looked into the idea about 14

years ago but it stalled.

Economic indicators

positive for Canty

THE OUTLOOK for

Christchurch’s economy

remains positive with

high levels of activity being

forecast even as rebuild activity

plateaus.

Economic indicators in

Canterbury Development

Corporation’s latest

Christchurch and Canterbury

Quarterly Economic Report

found that the economy

remained in a transition

phase as stimulus from

rebuild activity was continuing

to ease.

Canterbury has had a run

of several economic indicators

well above their historic

average levels, but several are

now starting to move towards

national trends.

CDC chief executive Tom

Hooper said it was important

to focus on the high levels of

activity still occurring around

the city and region, in spite of

GDP growth levels being lower

than recent years.

“Construction activity will

remain high for some time to

come, although it will no longer

drive growth in the economy,”

he said.

Christchurch’s GDP growth

in the year to March was 0.5

per cent, with activity valued at

$18.8 billion.

Non-residential construction

remained steady at 43 per cent

of all construction activity

in the March quarter, and

was expected to be buoyed by

upcoming projects such as the

Convention Centre.

The report showed the local

housing market had been

relatively cool compared to the

rest of the country.

Rents had continued to

fall, with private sector mean

rents at $383 in June 2016

seven per cent lower than June

last year. House prices have

increased modestly, with a

median sale price of $440,000

in Christchurch compared to

$500,000 nationally.

“Lower housing prices

combined with modest salary

increases, on average, is driving

an improvement in housing

affordability which is great news

for Christchurch,” Mr Hooper

said.

Market Stays Strong

Market Update News from Craig Prier

It’s that time of year again when we see a genuine lift in properties coming to the market. Even

though this winter has been particularly mild we find many home owners generally hold off

bringing their property to the market until September as the days get longer and blossoms

start to appear. Our office is getting huge numbers through the properties currently on the

market, demonstrating there is still very high demand for property in the hill and seaside

areas.

Always worth considering before coming to the market are the three P’s of selling.

Price, Presentation and Promotion. All three are tantamount to helping you achieve

the result you are after, as is your choice of agent. Our team are well versed to offer

you the right advice when it comes to working out the right way to present and promote

your home as well as providing relevant market information in order for you to have the

right price expectations. We have a current winter market update available for your interest.

Just drop into our office on Humphreys Drive to pick one up, or we can happily post one straight

to you. Call us today. We’re here to help.

Giving back – a humbling experience

Our day to day business activities involve helping people achieve their real estate aspirations, but we

also take an active role in engaging with our local community. This year one of those events was the

“Strictly Sumner Dance Event”. As a participant my chosen charity was the Sumner Community Residents

Association, however we also wished to donate some of the money raised to the Christchurch City Mission.

Last week Kathryn Cross (The Cornershop Bistro, Sumner) and I met with City Missioner, Michael Gorman

to present him a cheque. What went from a ten minute meeting turned

into a complete tour of the City Mission and it’s facilities.

What an amazing and humbling experience. With such a passionate

and dedicated leader at their helm Christchurch is fortunate to have

such an incredible facility available to those living with far less than

most. This is a facility that relies almost entirely on funding and help

from the community and we quickly realized that the money we gave

was literally a drop in the ocean compared to what they need every day,

and every year. I have no doubt that as a business and as a community

we can easily do more. Whether it’s a couple of tins of food, a couple

of hours volunteering in the kitchen or a monetary donation, this truly is

an organisation that hangs on to the saying that “every little bit helps”.

With Christmas now only 4 months away one small way you can help is

to donate a good quality pre-used or new toy for a child or adult in our

Ray White Little Ray of Giving Campaign starting in December.

Bays’ big season finish

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

FERRYMEAD BAYS will look

to end their season on a high

when they face Coastal Spirit in

the English Cup final.

At the start of the season,

first team head coach Danny

Halligan said he was aiming for

a top three finish. But with only

one league game left, the best

the team can hope for is fourth

spot.

Halligan admitted it had been

a bumpy season, but said the

team prioritised this weekend’s

final league match against Western

before they would focus on

competing for silverware.

“Yes, we missed out on the top

three spot and we’re now focussing

on finishing the league

season strongly. Then we can

look forward to the English Cup

final (Saturday, September 3),”

he said.

Halligan said losing key

players to injury and even rival

teams hadn’t helped the side’s

momentum.

“I think we’ve got stronger

as we’ve gone on, we had a

poor start and lost a number of

players either to injury or other

reasons and we never got that

consistency that we needed,” he

said.

Bays were holders of the English

Cup in both 2012 and 2013,

but Western and Cashmere

Technical have taken the honours

for the last two seasons.

Halligan said his side have a

“good chance” of taking away

the cup, as Coastal have never

taken the title.

“We have a good team and,

if we perform, we can beat any

team, and we’ve proved that this

season,” he said.

Coastal has played Bays three

times this season, winning each

time.

They beat Bays 3-0, 5-3, and

1-0 over the season, leading into

the final next Saturday.

Diamond Harbour pupils

SCHOOLS

go back to the future

Diamond Harbour Primary

School teacher Rebecca

Waters writes about

historical figures visiting

the classroom for a lesson

in New Zealand’s past

HISTORIC New Zealanders that

are on our bank notes came to

visit our pupils on Wednesday.

We had a visit from the wonderful

Claire at Rutherford’s Den

and she bought with her three

famous New Zealanders – Ernest

Rutherford, Kate Sheppard and

Apirana Ngata.

The children had an interactive

morning learning about historic

moments and the people behind

them.

They learned about Ernest Rutherford,

his Nobel Prize and all

about the atom; they completed

some weaving and mapped out to

scale a Maori kite with Apirana

Ngata; and stepped into Kate

Sheppard’s wardrobe to try on

her biking bloomers.

They also tried on a graduate

gown and experienced what

holding a Nobel Prize was like.

Along the way, they joined in

with the history by signing the

petition for women to vote with

a calligraphy pen and checked

gravity was still working.

LITTLE EINSTEIN: Noah re-enacts Ernest Rutherford’s

acceptance of the Nobel Prize in 1908.

The pupils had a great morning,

which I hope gave them

some inspiration to put their own

mark on the world.

AIR TIME: Heathcote Valley Primary School pupils will travel

to Hokitika after being named one of the winners of the

Air New Zealand Airpoints for Schools competition. The

class met a target of 1920 airpoints to be one of 10 schools

nationwide to go on a class trip by plane. The pupils will

travel to Hokitika to monitor and compare new spawning

grounds for whitebait as part of a new initiative, Whaka

Inaka: Causing Whitebait, which has been created through

EOS Ecology, DOC and the University of Canterbury.

Learning to grow food

DIAMOND Harbour Primary

School has joined a nationwide

initiative to experience both

growing and cooking their own

produce within their school

environment.

The Garden to Table programme

encourages Kiwi kids to

learn about the process of planting

and harvesting crops.

The programme for seven to

12-year-olds has been running

for eight years and is aimed at

changing the way children approach

and think about food.

Last week Fiesta, which has

teamed up with Garden to

Table, shipped packs of their

new range of European seed potatoes

to 40 schools across New

Zealand for children to grow this

season.

Learn rules of the water

• BY GARY MANCH,

NAVIGATIONAL

ews

SAFETY OFFICER,

LYTTELTON

I was thinking the other day

about boating in general, and

the people who use various types

of vessels ranging from paddle

boards through to yachts and

power boats.

Then I thought I wonder how

many of these people had done

any form of training in relation to

even the basic stuff like learning

ashion

the navigation rules, what the

bylaw rules are in the area that

they are using their boat, and I

came to the conclusion that it was

most likely a small amount.

I bet at this point you are

thinking how did he come to this

conclusion, and I have to admit

it’s not through any expensive

Gardening

survey, but through talking to

people on the ramps and out in

the water when they have done

something wrong.

An example may be going too

fast within 200m of the shore or a

structure (it’s a 5 knot speed limit

within 200m of the shore unless

the area is posted as an open

speed limit) the answer I get is

otoring

”sorry I did not know” if I had a

dollar for every time this was said

to me, I would be a very wealthy

man.

Currently there is no

compulsion for boaties to learn

asty Bites

the rules, anyone can buy a boat,

take it out on the water, if it is

a power boat then the person

operating must be 15 or older,

unless closely supervised by a

person over 15 years who is in

immediate reach of the controls.

I will tell you a story that occurred

recently in Kaikoura at

the public boat ramp, it was a

busy day, and there were boats all

waiting to come into shore, the

weather was fine but there was a

strong wind blowing towards the

port side (left side for you landlubbers)

of the vessels coming

into the ramp.

A late model stern drive Bayliner

was coming in towards the

boat ramp, and was attempting

to get on the boat trailer, every

time he got close he let the power

off and drifted away, after several

attempts and a crowd of people

watching, some not being very

complementary at all, one of his

mates released the winch rope

on the trailer to its full extent,

BOOK FOR

FATHER’S DAY

SUNDAY

CALL 376 4900

walked out into the water chest

deep and attached the rope to

the bow, and then wound the

boat in.

Due to the fact this was a very

unsafe way to bring the boat in, I

spoke to the skipper, it turns out

he had purchased the boat privately

the day before, had never

driven a boat before and was told

that it was easy to operate, well

how wrong he was.

This was a disaster waiting to

happen, not only for the other

boaties in the area but also the

chap in the water trying to

connect the winch rope, as a

result the new boatie was advised

to get someone to teach him to

use the boat correctly and also

do a minimum day skipper

course.

The point I am making is that

if you are going to use any form

of water craft, learn the rules, and

learn how to operate it properly,

then there will be no issues, take

care.

Bay Harbour News asked its

readers what they thought

of a Lyttelton Design

Review Panel being set up

to help decide what could

be built there, and what

buildings could look like.

Nichola Shanley – I recently

resigned from my position as

head of art at Burnside High

School, in part because I could no

longer bring myself to drive past

the mushrooming “beds are us”

mentality of the rebuild through

the tunnel.

Most people approach design,

aesthetic, style in a herd-like

mass-produced, throwaway, stick

another louvre on it dumbness.

You only have to visit Dunedin

and witness the elegant, clever

integration of historical and

contemporary renovation to see

what we are capable of in New

Zealand. Why are we getting it

so wrong in Christchurch and

Lyttelton?

I adore Lyttelton and will no

doubt die an old lady here. But

now I have to be very careful

about where I walk. For example

if I turn a particular corner and

see the “ministry of non-education’s”

building I want to faint in

anger and disgust. This mistake

will be with Lyttelton for a long

time. It is a perfect example of

mindless, fad-driven, insensitive

architecture. It is a disruption

to the environment it occupies.

It occupies like an enemy army

rather than dwelling naturally

FISHERMAN’S

WHARF

within the landscape. It attempts

to be arty but is busy and lacking

in basic design principles. The

clumsy graphics or typography

of the signage only reinforces the

lack of refinement of the overall

design.

Architecture should become

an heirloom. Architecture should

be intelligent. Architecture and

interior design influence our

wellbeing. No, I do not think we

need quirky buildings except perhaps

in a childrens’ playground,

we need intelligent design.

Does Lyttelton need a design

review panel? Tricky, how would

this be any different to a panel

which approves of a person’s fitness

to parent?

Heritage was once a new build.

What we build today will become

our heritage. In 100 years would

we be proud of the plastic painted,

cookie cutter tilt slab, louvre

drenched, faddish structures

popping up overnight?

I was excited by the Stanaways

proposal. I cried and cried the

day they killed the Shadbolt

building. I believe buildings and

gardens have a soul. The day

they fenced off our wharves from

the public was the day Lyttelton

began to fade.

A ‘gold mine’

of footwear

for all ages

The Footwear Factory in Garlands Road

Woolston has been a part of the Christchurch

retail scene for more than a quarter of a century.

Over that time thousands of people have

flocked to the store to find bargains and

good deals in quality footwear, ranging from

children’s shoes, sandals and school shoes to

men’s and women’s fashion and causal shoes,

outdoor and sports shoes, bowls shoes, slippers,

and safety footwear for the workplace.

Launched in a small shop in Papanui, the

business later operated in Riccarton for 12 years

before moving to Garlands Rd 13 years ago.

Owned by Russ and Jude Day, there you

will find shelves lined with footwear in a huge

variety of styles and colours for men, women

and children – a ‘gold mine’ for shoe-seeking

shoppers.

The footwear is brought in from all over the

world, as well as coming from New Zealand

manufacturers, and includes ends of lines and

other well-priced items.

Four main brands are carried – the New

Zealand made McKinlays range of children’s

school shoes, as well as men’s and women’s

styles. The well-known Hi-Tec range of outdoor

footwear and tramping, New Balance sports

shoes and a range of Keens sandals and outdoor

footwear. These known brands cover all ages.

New styles arrive almost every day, so there

are always more to try on, while Russell and his

second-in-charge Karen are happy to advise on

styles and sizing.

Located on a high-profile site at 47C Garlands

Rd, (next to Flags Tyre’s), the Footwear Factory

is easy to find, and there is off-street parking

available.

They are open seven days a week – 9.30am-

Fashion

City models at big event

• By Annabelle Dick

THREE Christchurch models

will show their stuff this week

at New Zealand’s most popular

fashion show in Auckland.

Rebecca Dore, Georgia Greig

and Lucy Wyma will walk the

catwalk in the New Zealand

Weddings Magazine Show

at New Zealand Fashion

Week.

Portfolio Model Agency director

Mel Radford Brown said

the three girls are some of the

top within the agency and they

reflect the talent Christchurch

has to offer.

“This speak volumes of portfolio

models and the calibre

of our models,” Mrs Radford

Brown said.

Rebecca Dore, 21, of

Burnside, is Portfolio Model

Agency’s booker and a model

for the business.

This is her fourth time walking

at NZFW and she said

she’s thrilled to be a part of one

of the more extravagant shows

of the week.

“I did the wedding show

last year and it was beautiful,”

Miss Dore said.

She has also walked in

Australia’s premier event, the

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week,

in Sydney.

Miss Greig, 19, formerly of

Timaru, only stepped onto the

modelling scene a year ago after

a friend urged her to enter a

competition.

She’s excited to show at New

Zealand’s premier fashion

event, especially considering

she didn’t even attend the casting

for the event.

“It’s pretty overwhelming

to be chosen because, being

a student, it was financially

unviable to attend casting so

I just hung back and let them

know I was available,” she said.

Miss Greig is studying

design and wants to get a

qualification behind her before

jumping into what can be a

shaky industry.

Miss Wyma, 20, of Papanui,

will also model at the annual

event alongside Miss Greig and

Miss Dore.

The young model was

recently signed to the IMG

International agency, which

has the likes of Gisele Bundchen,

Miranda Kerr and Kate

Moss on its books. The models

will walk in the wedding show

today and Saturday.

BREAK OUT: Georgia Greig will model in fashion week

after only a year in the industry. ​

Bridal Show

Take the stress out – plan your honeymoon

THE COST and time it takes

to organise a honeymoon

can often be underestimated

when couples are planning

their weddings.

But at Sunday’s With This

Ring Bridal Show, there will

be a number of exhibitors

there to take the stress out

of it.

Hello World Travel’s

Rangiora and Rolleston

branches will be at the show,

with a group of experts

to talk to people who are

looking into the planning.

Rangiora branch managing

director Liz Ditmer said

often people had unrealistic

expectations of how much

honeymoons could cost.

She said people also had to

start planning their trips well

in advance, and their teams

would be at next Sunday’s

show to help people do so.

“We’re just there to start

pointing them in the right

direction,” she said.

“We can make

appointments and sit down

with them at a later time to

talk in more detail.”

This year’s show will have

85 exhibitors ranging from

wedding and bridesmaid

gowns, photography,

honeymoons, flowers,

stationary, caterers, venue

hire and many more.

On top of that, there will

be more than $22,000 of

prizes to be won.

A wedding and

honeymoon at Norfolk

Island will be up for grabs, as

well as a honeymoon at The

Edgewater Resort and Spa in

Rarotonga.

Venue hire up to the value

of $4050 for Wigram Base

will be up for grabs, along

with many more prizes and

giveaways.

Two fashion catwalks will

be held, one at 11am and the

other at 2pm, showcasing

wedding gowns and mother

of the bride outfits.

•The With This Ring Bridal

Show will be held at the

Air Force Museum of

New Zealand, Wigram,

on Sunday (August

28), from 9.30am-4pm.

Tickets are $15 and can

be purchased at the door

on the day, or pre-sale

tickets are available

online at dashtickets.

Travel

Relive the West Coast’s gold rush days

• By Mike Yardley

HEMMED IN by the Tasman

Sea and the serrated peaks of the

Main Divide, there really is no

region in New Zealand quite like

Westland.

After tootling from Christchurch

to Greymouth on the

TranzAlpine, I swapped the rail

tracks for the roadway to freeroam

the West Coast’s delights.

My first stop was Shantytown, a

faithfully re-created 1860s goldmining

town, complete with pub

and post office.

Highlights include the cluster

of 30 gold rush era buildings,

painted in the bright colours of

boiled sweets. Enjoy a tipple in

the evocative Golden Nugget

Hotel, learn the art of gold panning

and enjoy the short movie

in the opulent Victorian-themed

theatre.

Heading further south on SH6,

I went as far as Ross, a cute-as-abutton

settlement, with a storied

past in gold mining. The historic

village of glories lost sports a cluster

of colonial buildings, including

the old Ross jail and miners’

cottages.

From Ross, I ventured back up

SH6, to take in Treetops walk,

traversing the canopy of the

NATURAL: The turquoise colour of the Hokitika Gorge is

caused by glacial flour seeping into the water.

podocarp forest by Lake Mahinapua.

Twenty-five metres above

the forest floor, the mesh-steel

gantry leads you through a dense

vista of native forest, with giant

specimens of rimu, kamahi and

matai, interspersed with tree

ferns, orchids, liverworts and

fellow forest floor residents. www.

treetopsnz.com

Follow the signposts to Kokatahi

and Kowhitirangi. The

West Coast’s multitude of vivid

greens comes into sharp focus

as you wend your way through

the fertile farmland. From here, a

short gravel road leads you to one

of my favourite New Zealand settings,

the ravishing granite ravine

of Hokitika Gorge, deep in the

Whitcombe Valley.

Right by the alpine fault, surrounded

by dense native bush,

thronging with native birds, the

turquoise water is so absurdly

vivid and otherworldly, it looks

photo-shopped. (It’s due to the

glacial flour seeping into the

water.)

But after heavy rain, the water

turns a soupy grey, so you will be

at the mercy of the weather gods.

RESTORED: The Theatre

Royal Hotel in Kumara first

opened in 1876.

Complete your valley circuit

by shadowing the eastern side

of Lake Kaniere and the lusty

waterworks of Dorothy Falls.

From there, a plethora of lakeside

spots beckoning you to pause,

before completing the circuit in

Hokitika.

You’d be hard pressed to find

any other town or city in New

Zealand with more galleries,

studios and arty types. I spent all

day admiring the studios, talking

to the painters, glass blowers,

craftspeople and pounamu carvers.

For a legendary West Coast

hospitality experience truly out of

the box, you must stay a night at

the resplendently restored Theatre

Royal Hotel in Kumara. Handily

located half way between Greymouth

and Hokitika, this grand

old hotel first opened its doors in

in 1876, at the start of the Kumara

gold rush.

The current owners Kerrie

and Mark Fitzgibbon bought the

derelict hotel in 2010, spending

nearly three years to restore it.

You’ll enjoy a heady dose of

Kumara’s community spirit in the

bar and dining area every night,

which spills forth with vintage

West Coast conviviality. I feasted

on fresh turbot in beer batter,

while for dessert, don’t go past the

apple crumble and custard.

Unsurprisingly, the hotel is

repeatedly showered with awards.

You must experience it. www.

Hyundai’s Elantra stands test of time

• By Ross Kiddie

HYUNDAI’S Lantra, or Elantra

as it is now known, is one of

the company’s most successful

nameplates.

It was first introduced as a midsize

sedan in 1990, and has progressed

through five generations;

the latest all-new, sixth-generation

variant has just been released

onto the New Zealand market.

The Elantra arrives in two

specifications, both with the

one body style, bearing in mind

that previous generation models

have had station wagon options.

I guess with the way the station

wagon market has given way to

sport utility vehicles, Hyundai

would still be comfortable with

just the one variation.

Elsewhere, the concept of

Elantra hasn’t changed, it captures

all of the features which has

made the model so successful, yet

packages them in a functional,

appealing package.

The evaluation car was badged

Elite specification and lists at

$39,990, an entry-level model sits

$4000 below that.

Under the bonnet sits a

2-litre, twin-camshaft, petrol

engine which is a relatively new

design for the Korean company.

Rated with power outputs of

112kW (6200rpm) and 192Nm

ELANTRA ELITE: .Important part of the Hyundai line-up.

(4000rpm) it is a free-revving

unit which drives through a sixspeed

automatic gearbox, incidentally

it is the only transmission

in the range.

Hyundai also claim a 7.2-litre

per 100km (39mpg) combined

cycle fuel usage rating for the

Elantra. During my 150km road

evaluation the fuel usage readout

was listing constantly at around

8.6l/100km (33mpg) which sat

well with Hyundai’s claim. At

100km/h on the highway the

engine is turning over at just

2100rpm in top gear providing a

5l/100km (56mpg) instantaneous

return.

Hyundai have long had a reputation

for building high quality

vehicles, and those which provide

its occupants with comfort and

an easy driving experience. The

Elantra doesn’t dip out on those

facets.

I drove my usual test route

through the Canterbury high

country. It cruises quietly on

the long straights and has direct

steering into a corner.

The suspension is a mixture of

McPherson struts up front and

a torsion beam rear. As much as

I like fully independent designs,

the simplistic system in the

Elantra is well located and movement

isn’t compromised greatly.

It isn’t overly firmed through

the spring and dampers, absorption

over Christchurch’s ruts and

FUNCTIONAL: Apple

CarPlay will allow on-screen

infotainment from your

iPhone.

bumps is arrested, and when you

push into a corner it is composed

through the underpinnings with

balanced body movement.

Providing the grip are Koreanmade

Hankook Ventus tyres

(225/45 x 17in). They are sticky

compound, and issue the driver

with solid feedback as to how

they are reacting to cornering

pressure.

Add to that the solid flow

of power that arrives from the

engine and you have a vehicle

that could easily be classed as a

sports sedan. Sure, its demeanour

doesn’t suggest that it is truly

exotic, but what its performance

translates into is a responsive,

dynamic car which is at home

on the twisty nature of New

Zealand’s roads.

• Price – Hyundai Elanta

Elite, $39,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4570mm; width, 1800mm;

height, 1440mm

• Configuration: Fourcylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

1999cc, 112kW, 192Nm,

six-speed automatic.

• Performance – 0-100km/

h, 9.4sec

• Fuel usage– 7.2l/100km

In terms of specification, the

Elantra arrives with a host of

features for comfort and convenience

and, of course, safety. Some

of the major items of fitment

include full leather trim with

heated front seats, touch screen

display with Apple CarPlay, keyless

entry and ignition, cruise

control and dual-zone climate

control.

I’ve written many times in the

past about the direction Hyundai

is taking as a company. It has

high aspirations and the model

line-up is vast.

Hyundai has done the hard

yards in establishing itself as a

globally recognised manufacturer

of first-class vehicles, and it’s fine

cars like the Elantra that will keep

those loyal to the brand entertained

and satisfied for many

years to come.

Davis Cup event returns to Christchurch

The New Zealand Davis

Cup team are heading back to

Christchurch to take on Pakistan in

the Asia-Oceania Group 1 second

round playoff. The Tie is being

held from Friday 16 September to

Sunday 18 September, indoors at

Z Energy Wilding Park.

Kiwi Olympians Michael Venus

and Marcus Daniell ranked 41

and 58 respective in the world

for doubles have been named

alongside Finn Tearney ranked

381, Rubin Statham at 444 in

singles. If Statham takes the court

he will beat Onny Parun’s New

Zealand Davis Cup record of the

most ties played for his country of

25 ties.

It is likely Pakistan will select

their doubles expert Aisam

Qureshi who is 36-years-old and

ranked 48th in doubles. Aqeel

Khan is another likely veteran

who should be selected.

New Zealand lead Pakistan

3-1 in head-to-head clashes. The

last time the two sides clashed it

was a 4-1 win for New Zealand

in Myanmar in 2013 which was

abandoned.

Christchurch has been the home

of Davis Cup ties since 2014, with

a win against Chinese Taipei in

2014 and a close 3-2 loss to India

in the 2015 semi-finals. Tennis

Canterbury is extremely excited

to host yet another Davis Cup tie

for the third consecutive year. This

is a return to the glory days that

has seen Tennis Canterbury host

numerous Davis Cup ties against

some of the superpower of world

tennis.

Z Energy Wilding Park is one

of the oldest sport venues still in

operation in all of Canterbury.

It has played host to Davis

Cup matches as far back as the

1910’s and 20’s. Much like many

of Christchurch’s other most

important sporting facilities

Wilding Park was severely

impacted by the Christchurch

Earthquake impacted in both

September 2009 and February

2010.

The rebuilding process has

been a long one. Mixed emotions

were felt at the demolition of the

iconic Memorial Stands, host to

numerous Davis Cup Tie and other

International Tennis Federation

events. However it was also the first

bit of tangible progress in relation

to the redevelopment of Wilding

Park and proved to generate

some real excitement amongst the

tennis community. Strengthening

work on the facility’s structural

steel and refurbishment of the

administration and function

space erased any signs of the

earthquake damage and provided

the wider community with some

great function space.

The final stage of development

will see the reinstatement of

six additional outdoor courts,

the development of a grassy

embankment for spectator viewing

and social spaces, including a

barbeque area. The facility will

continue to be available to the

local communities, including

school, charitable organisations

and, in some cases, other sports

outside of normal hours. The

final stage of development work

is scheduled to be gin in the

coming month with a completion

date of mid November, just in

time for the Summer of Tennis.

This development will allow

Canterbury to again host National

Age Group events, International

Events and, of course, future

Summer Davis Cup ties.

This year’s Davis Cup tie is a

three day event. Two singles will

be played on Friday, doubles on

Saturday and the two reverse

singles on Sunday. Matches are

the best of five sets. Tickets and

Corporate Boxes are available.

Please go to www.tennis.kiwi for

further information and pricing.

Cantabrian Tennis Player USA Bound

On the 1st June 2016, Jack Tiller

signed a national letter of intent

with Southeastern Oklahoma State

University, located in Durant,

Oklahoma, USA.

From the age of 15 Jack’s overall

goal in tennis was to gain a

scholarship to train, play and study

in the United States of America.

Through taking part in Canterbury

Performance squads since the age of

12, he constantly saw older players

being granted scholarships and

given opportunities to experience

American lifestyle through

tennis while gaining invaluable

experiences. Seeing others excel

in the college tennis system

encouraged him to start

preparation for enrolment in

Fall 2016.

In October of 2015, Jack

got in contact with John

Gardner, the head coach in

the Nelson/Marlborough region

and his company, Inspire Sports.

John’s expertise guided Jack

through a comprehensive checklist

of what he needed to achieve to

reach his ultimate goal of signing

with a college that fitted in well with

what he wanted. John’s personalised

programme was a great help. It

began with initial meetings with

Jack and his father so John could

understand what they were looking

for in a college. John then set out a

‘Plan of attack” on how they would

go about getting a contract. They

began working together through

each stage, which included NCAA

registration, skills video, personal

website, SAT and GPA results and

working through what colleges Jack

wanted to contact. Jack believes that

it would not have been possible for

him to work through everything

that needed to be done without

John’s outstanding expertise and

knowledge. Jack found John’s

attention to detail and reliability to

be outstanding.

Jack began talks with the coach

from Southeastern Oklahoma State

University in March of this year. The

coach expressed his interest in Jack

joining the college team and, after

talking through email, the college

made an offer for Jack to attend

their college and become part of the

Savage Storm athletic family. After

the initial paper work, Jack signed a

national letter of intent, committing

Jack to attending the university.

Through his years of training,

Jack’s ultimate goal was to get to

university. Jack is a self-professed

‘late bloomer’ in tennis. During his

junior years, he describes himself as

a mediocre player who was always

outside the top player category.

Through growth, maturity and the

help of the Canterbury training

programme, he was able to play

smarter tennis and achieve positive

results. Coaching by Alistair Hunt

and Matt Meredith has afforded

Jack the opportunity to learn from

the best and use their expertise on

court, creating a huge advantage.

Jack has represented Canterbury

in multiple ties including

Canterbury vs Marlborough,

City vs Country, Canterbury

team’s event and also the

Canterbury men’s team. In 2015

he won the under 18 Canterbury

Championships, a great result to put

on his college application form.

Jack has always loved the fact that

tennis is mostly an individual sport,

results are based on a player’s own

ability and there are no excuses. Jack

has always enjoyed competing in

Canterbury Interclub representing

his club of Elmwood. He is grateful

to Ashley Forbes for giving him

the opportunity to play top level

tennis in the premiere grade against

great players like James Meredith,

Remi Fennon and other top rated

players in the region. Jack feels that

it through playing top level players

that he has learned the most, even if

it involved losing.

During tennis season, Jack trains

or plays every day of the week. Each

week also includes four sessions of

hitting, two fitness sessions and two

days of interclub matches on the

weekends. During the off season

Jack keeps training with hitting

three days a week and a fitness

session and match play on the

weekends.

Jack chooses to keep his future

goals simple. His immediate goal

is to do the best he can to prepare

for college and to give himself the

best chance of success. For Jack,

this means being fit and healthy,

requiring him to train as well as he

can every time he gets on the court.

Over the long term, Jack plans to

take every opportunity he can at

Southeastern Oklahoma State in

order to reach his full potential

whilst there, not just in tennis, but

also in academic life.

For younger players aspiring to

play college tennis, Jack’s advice is

to never give up. Jack recalls many

moments in his time of playing

tennis when he thought he wasn’t

good enough, or wasn’t able to

compete to his full potential. Not

TENNIS CANTERBURY 2016 / 2017 CALENDAR

being the best player in the region

or the nation is not a problem;

it’s a challenge. By embracing

that challenge, working hard and

training, it is possible to shorten the

gap between the different levels in

order to compete in top level tennis.

Have a goal and go for it!

Jack invites anyone interested in

college tennis to feel free to ask any

questions. He will be happy to try

and answer!

Tennis Canterbury names Redcliff’s Club

President as Volunteer of the Year

Redcliffs Tennis Club’s president, Di France, has been named Tennis

Canterbury’s Volunteer of the Year.

Following the February 2011 earthquake, Redcliffs Tennis Club was faced

with uninsured damages estimated at $200,000. Di France, a former president

of the club from 1981-1983, heard rumours that the troubled club may be forced

to close and to sell its grounds. After a 22 year hiatus from tennis, Di stepped

forward as voluntary project manager to rescue the tennis club on behalf of her

community. She singlehandedly applied for community grants to reinstate the

damaged courts, then project managed the repair work. This involved digging up

the courts, relaying with a base then a temporary surface, and finally a finish of

Synpave.

Di was once again elected President of the Redcliff ’s Tennis Club when the club

reopened in May 2013. Under her supervision, the club has grown from 40 junior

and 22 senior members to 132 juniors and 35 affiliated senior members.

Di continues to be the driving force behind the tennis club. She has established

junior tennis coaching, first by engaging Stu Chalmers as junior coach for the

2013/2014 season, then by organising for Evie Ruegg to take on the Head Coach

role. Di also established social senior club tennis on Tuesday and Friday mornings,

which she herself attends. Along with her husband, Roger, Di undertakes regular

maintenance of the courts, club house and hall.

Redcliffs Tennis Club now enjoys a renewed place in the community. The club

leases its hall to the displaced Redcliffs Public Library. Using networks she has built

throughout Redcliffs, Di encourages strong community and family participation

in club events. She regularly offers her own services to club activities, cooking

sausages and preparing afternoon teas for prize-givings and end of season parties.

Redcliffs Tennis Club offers club, interclub, social and casual tennis.

Have Fun and Get Fit

with Cardio Tennis

Looking for a way to get fit, have fun and

meet new people? Cardio Tennis is a fitness

programme offered at tennis clubs across

Canterbury. Combining the best features of

tennis with cardiovascular exercise, Cardio

Tennis delivers a fun, full-body, calorieburning

aerobic workout ¬– even if you have

never played tennis before.

Cardio Tennis uses low-compression tennis

balls which travel at a slower speed, making

it easier for a beginner to hit the ball. More

advanced players will be challenged by a

range of activities that cater to all skill levels.

Cardio Tennis works by raising participants’

heart rates into their aerobic training zone. At

the beginning of each session, participants

are equipped with heart rate monitors before

exercising to music and using a variety of

modified equipment to elevate the heart

rate. Like interval training, periods of high

intensity are followed by short periods of rest.

Cardio Tennis combines fun with

spectacular success. Women can burn up to

500 calories in a 60 minute workout. Men

can burn up to 800 calories. Cardio Tennis

coaches are Tennis NZ registered and trained

to ensure that participants get a great workout

while improving their tennis skills.

Even if you’re not good at tennis, Cardio

Tennis can provide a fun, social way to keep

fit. Contact Tennis Canterbury to find a

Cardio Tennis programme near you.

Tennis Hot Shots –

Grassroots fun for all!

Kids working together, no queues and modified

courts, balls and equipment make Tennis Hot

Shots plenty of fun for all and a great way for your

kids to be introduced to the sport of

tennis in a fun, social environment.

The four key elements of any

New Zealand Post Tennis Hot Shots

session are:

1. FUN Players are actively

engaged, excited and motivated to

participate.

2. TACTICAL/PLAY Players

think and make decisions about

meaningful tennis situations.

3. SKILLS Players have plenty

of opportunities to improve their

tennis skills.

4. SOCIAL Players build social

skills such as working cooperatively

with a partner, building friendships,

encouraging teammates and

showing sportsmanship during game play.

Coaching New Zealand Post Tennis Hot Shots

coaching sessions are run by Tennis New Zealand

October marks the beginning of Tennis

Canterbury’s exciting tournament calendar

for the 2016/17 season at Wilding Park. Chris

Anderson and Rosemary Hargreaves, both

experienced tournament co-coordinators,

have been appointed to organise this year’s

tournaments.

As in previous years, the programme for

junior tournaments will take place during

each of the school holidays, starting with the

Z Energy Junior Spring Open (2-7 October).

Entries for the Spring Open are now being

accepted online until the closing date of 23

Sept 2016. Fact Sheets are available on the

website for each tournament, and provide

information for planning and for play as well

as contact information for any questions. The

tournament welcomes players from the 8 and

under age group up to 18 years.

All junior tournaments are open to any

junior, regardless of age or ability. Players

can be from any area, in New Zealand and

internationally, except for the ASB Primary/

Intermediate Tournament on Show Weekend,

which is replicated throughout the country

for each area’s participation.

qualified coaches. Our qualified coaches teach

kids to play in fun, supportive and interactive

sessions. Lessons generally run for between 30 and

60 minutes. NZPTHS coaching

sessions can be one-on-one or in a

group – ask your local venue what

options are available.

Community Play Community

Play is designed to give kids

the chance to have a hit in a

supportive environment where the

emphasis is on fun, not coaching.

The Community Play program

is conducted in clubs and centres

New Zealand-wide by parents,

club volunteers and NZPTHS

coaches.
