From gold

to school

Principal replacement deadline

• By Annabelle Dick

LYTTELTON PRIMARY School

has to appoint a new principal

by November 26 to replace the

departing principal Diana Feary.

Mrs Feary announced her

resignation two weeks ago. The

school is now looking for a successor

by late November to take

the reigns as principal in 2017.

Mrs Feary’s last day is January

26 and a new principal has to be

appointed at least two months

before the existing principal

leaves as part of the Employment

Relations Act 2000.

Board of Trustees chairwoman

Bridget O’Brien said they’re now

in the process of searching for

a new principal but the role has

not yet been advertised.

“We’re already under way with

the principal recruitment process.

The board had a meeting

on Monday night to start the

planning for recruiting a new

principal,” she said.

“We’re aiming to get it in the

New Zealand Education Gazette

in early October and applications

will close on October 17.”

Vice principal Bernice Swain

is also leaving the school and

handed her notice in last week.

The departure of two of the

school’s senior management

staff has left the school with a

lone vice principal Jeremy Orczy

leading into next year.

Mrs Feary will take a gap year

while Mrs Swain will go on to

teach at Haeata Community

Campus in Aranui next term.

Mrs O’Brien said Mrs Feary

had been planning on leaving after

the merger between Lyttelton

Main School and Lyttelton West

was complete.

Said Mrs O’Brien: “Now the

transition is complete she feels

like now is the right time to

move on and somebody else

take over the reigns. She’s been

planning this for over a year now

that she would see it through to

the end of this year.”

She also said the reports of

bullying at the school weren’t

related to her resignation.

The school won’t be replacing

Mrs Swain as vice principal and

her management duties will be

spread across other staff.

“One of the reasons we had

two vice principals is because we

were operating across two sites

until term two this year and we

needed management on both

sides. Now we’re on the one side

we feel that one vice principal is

sufficient,” Mrs O’Brien said.

Mrs Swain will finish at the

end of this term and a fixed-term

teacher will step in to cover.

JACK LOPAS has a huge rowing

future ahead of him and Bridget

Rutherford profiles the Little River

17-year-old on pages 10-11.

He’s back from the Netherlands

where he won gold at the junior

world champs – just in time for

his NCEA exams at Christchurch

Boys’ High School.

Lopas has a huge amount of

natural sporting talent, and also

has rowing in his genes. But what

separates the champions from the

pack is the willingness and determination

to go that bit further in

training, and of course that extra

percentage up top.

On another note, it appears our

front page article last week on the

coastal hazards LIM issue has had

an impact on city hall. They’ve

delayed their latest course of action

and will now meet with the

Sara TEMPLETON

Councillor for Heathcote

Hi again – As chair of the Hagley Ferrymead

Community Board for the last three years, I have

worked hard for our communities.

I am now standing for Council as promised meaningful

engagement with communities and

local decision making have not yet happened.

It is at Council level that these changes are made.

We need strong communities for a stronger,

more sustainable and thriving Christchurch.

We need councillors with community

experience to make it happen.

Hope for LIM report saga

Latham to

meet again

with Dalziel

• By Annabelle Dick

Mayor Lianne Dalziel has

agreed to meet further with

the group campaigning against

flood and erosion data on

property LIM reports.

She will sit down with

Christchurch Coastal Residents

United spokesman Dr Darrell

Latham (right) within the next

fortnight.

Ms Dalziel has asked the

group to work with the city

council on changing the

Coastal Hazards Assessment

Report.

“We had a conversation with

the mayor about the whole

coastal hazards process. As a

result of that meeting we are

now looking forward to the

review of the coastal hazards

chapter and working in a

collaborative and consultative

way with the mayor and

council,” he said.

The original report found a

number of coastal homes are at

risk of erosion and flooding

and that information has

gone on homeowners’ LIM

reports.

A review panel urged the

city council to remove it and

undertake more research

because the maps identifying

18,000 at-risk properties could

be legally unsound.

Dr Latham said working

with the city council to change

the report is a significant step

forward for coastal residents.

“The mayor has opened

the door for us to engage in

the process and wants this to

happen asap and before the next

scheduled city council meeting

on September 22,” he said.

“The reality of the situation,

however, will become clear

when we discuss proposed

LIM wording. The devil, of

course, will always be in the

detail.”

In Brief

BUS SHELTER

A bus shelter will be installed on

Norwich Quay. A new bus stop

location was approved in June and

the shelter will now be installed as

well. The bus stop and shelter will

be installed adjacent to 25 Norwich

Quay and will replace the existing

bus stop on Norwich Quay opposite

Dublin St. It will cost about $9000

to build and install the shelter

which should be in place within the

next three months.

DAMAGED WALL

A structural assessment will be

done on concrete blocks and fencing

surrounding a damaged wall next

to the Gaol Steps. The steps lead

from St David St to Oxford St near

Lyttelton Primary School. The

obstacles take up to 50 per cent

of the pavement space and it is of

concern as many children go past

the wall. The Ministry of Education

own the damaged wall and it will

be assessed before removing the

concrete blocks and fence as it could

be unsafe to stand uncovered.

BEACHVILLE RD REPAIRS

Road repairs will impact access to

Beachville Rd in Redcliffs. Work on

the southern corner of Beachville

Rd began on Monday. There will

be a road closure in place at the

southern corner and access will be

from the north end of Beachville Rd

for the next two weeks.

Court repair concerns

• By Annabelle Dick

NEARLY SIX years after the

February 22 earthquake, the

Lyttelton Tennis Club is still

trying to get its damaged courts

repaired and up to working order.

The club has significant court

surface damage and a retaining

wall that needs to be fixed so the

members can have proper access

to the club’s facilities.

Club president Jillian Frater

raised her concerns to the Lyttelton-Mt

Herbert Community

Board about the repairs and the

possibility of progressing them.

“It’s been an ongoing, long

process and we wanted to make

sure that they were still considering

it,” she said.

One of the two court surfaces

is cracked and the bank behind

it has slumped onto the courts

both as a result of the 2011

earthquake and subsequent

storms.

The steps to the clubroom has

also been fenced off for the past

three years and only once the

other retaining wall is repaired

can work on the steps and court

begin.

“The retaining wall is a priority

as it influences the use of

the stairs. They fenced them off

a couple of years ago and we

haven’t been able to use them but

Couple escape unhurt

after campervan overturns

• By Annabelle Dick

AN AUSTRALIAN couple had

a lucky break after escaping

from their campervan which

overturned in strong winds on

State Highway 75.

The pair were travelling to

Akaroa when strong gusts blew

their campervan off the road last

Wednesday at about 10pm.

Little River Volunteer Fire

Brigade chief fire officer David

Irving said the couple were

travelling to Akaroa on the last

day of their holiday when the

incident happened.

“The wind caught their campervan,

put it up on two wheels

and they didn’t have enough

road to wrestle it back down so it

was blown off the road,” he said.

Three volunteer fire officers attended

the scene between Graylees

Rd and Kaituna Valley Rd.

The couple weren’t injured but

the campervan has been written

off.

they need to move those before

they can fix the court.”

City council has already spent

$170,000 to repair one of the

damaged retaining walls and

they’ll have to spend more to

complete the remaining work.

Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community

Board chairwoman

Paula Smith said at the time

they heard from Ms Frater, the

board heard from the capital

programme who fix retaining

walls in Lyttelton.

“They agreed to go have a

look at it and they’re probably

going to include that in their

programme but I haven’t heard

a confirmation of that. But staff

are now aware of the problem

and are working on it,” Ms

Smith said.

The community board has requested

city council staff update

the board regularly on progress

with outstanding issues raised in

regards to the tennis courts.

Big claims for mileage

• By Annabelle Dick and Bridget

Rutherford

MORE THAN $30,000 has been

claimed by city councillors and

community board members in

mileage this term and that figure

is likely to increase considerably.

Community board members

and a city councillor representing

Banks Peninsula made

up the majority of those who

claimed back their mileage costs

over the past three years.

Representatives from the

Akaroa-Wairewa Community

Board and the Lyttelton-Mt

Herbert Community Board have

claimed $33,079.31 in mileage

payment.

Akaroa-Wairewa Community

Board chairwoman Pam Richardson

got $11,468 back from the

city council, which made up a

third of the total claims.

Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community

Board chairwoman

Paula Smith came in second at

$7819, while Banks Peninsula

city councillor Andrew Turner

claimed $6868.

City councillors and community

board members can claim

back 74c for every kilometre

they travel over 30km when they

are going to and from council

or board business in their own

vehicles.

Pam Richardson

Banks Peninsula representatives

have to drive further to

get to council-related meetings,

because the wards cover a larger

area.

As wards have changed with

the representation review, the

two Banks Peninsula community

boards will become one

and meetings will be held at Lyttelton’s

new boardroom.

Mrs Richardson, who lives

in Pigeon Bay, and serves on

the Akaroa-Wairewa Community

Board, said with the two

boards merging after October’s

elections, the amount of travel

would increase.

“For prospective members

it will be considerably more

travel,” Mrs Richardson said.

Ms Smith, who lives in

Diamond Harbour, won’t be

standing in the next local body

elections but she said mileage

costs will increase for both

the city council and the board

members.

“It will increase and so will the

cost to the elected representatives

and their families because

the rules set means you only get

reimbersed for the mileage you

do over 30km. For example I

do about $8000 worth of mileage

but there’s a big proportion

I’m paying myself because my

journeys are less than 30km,”

she said.

Remuneration and expenses,

including mileage, are set by the

Remuneration Authority and

the city council provides the appropriate

support.

Of the 28 community board

representatives and 13 city councillors

in the city, only five board

members and two city councillors

claimed their mileage back,

in total costing the city council

$33,990.

Akaroa-Wairewa Community

Board members Lyndon Graham

and Janis Haley claimed

$5431 and $1490 respectively.

OFFICIALLY OPEN: New World Ferry Rd was opened

by Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson (left) and members of the

Boock family, Oliver Gardiner, Greg Boock, Lily, Macy,

Hunter and Rebecca. The store has been built next to

the old one, near the Woolston shops. It has taken a year

to rebuild and, once the old store is demolished, there

will also be more car parks. Owner-operator Greg Boock

said the store is in “fantastic shape” and he was pleased

to open it to shoppers for the first time.

Harbour will be monitored

before proposed dredging

• By Annabelle Dick

WATER QUALITY monitoring

is underway for the Lyttelton

Port of Christchurch’s proposed

dredging project.

The $3 million operation

began in Lyttelton Harbour

on Friday in what is the largest

environmental monitoring

programme ever undertaken

for a dredging project in New

Zealand.

LPC is proposing to dredge

the shipping channel so larger

container ships can visit the port.

The proposal is still waiting on

resource consent from the city

council.

LPC will install 14 water

quality buoys and monitoring

equipment on the sea floor

throughout the harbour, Port

Levy and offshore marine areas

to capture live information.

Water clarity, pH level,

temperature and nutrient levels

will be measured and a summary

of the data will be sent to a

website every 15 minutes.

LPC chief executive Peter

Davie said information from the

sites will enable the proposed

dredging operations to be

constantly managed.

“While the company is

Options investigated to

deal with slow tourists

• By Annabelle Dick

AKAROA residents frustrated

by tourist drivers may get

some relief soon as options are

investigated for slow vehicles.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency is looking at locations for

pull-off areas and slow vehicle

bays near the Hilltop area after a

petition was sent to the agency in

a bid to make State Highway 75

more user-friendly.

Petition organiser Marie Haley,

of Goughs Bay, said residents

have endured years of frustration

over road conditions and slow

drivers between Akaroa and Little

River.

“It came about because each

summer there’s a lot of very slow

tourists on the roads. There’s a lot

of tourist buses and vehicles on

State Highway 75 and nowhere

for them to pull over and let people

pass,” Ms Haley said.

Residents want to see sealed

shoulders and driving courtesy

signs introduced to allow tourists

to pull over and let others pass.

NZTA traffic and safety manager

Tony Spowart said while he

recognised residents’ frustration,

drivers should be aware that

this is a route often travelled by

tourists.

30 minutes, with 85 per cent of

journeys completed under 37

minutes. This is considered a

safe and reasonable journey time

given the hilly terrain and need

for all drivers to take care,” he

said.

“We understand that local

drivers who know this road well

sometimes get held up behind

people who are new to this part

of the country, or who may be

diverted by the scenery. While

this can be frustrating, it is

relatively temporary and for

everyone’s safety and enjoyment

of the Banks Peninsula area, we

encourage all drivers to slow

down and be patient.”

The Akaroa-Wairewa Community

Board is backing the petition

and the city council will discuss

it at its September 15 meeting.

It may be true that there are fewer buyers and sellers in

the winter marketplace but the ones that are there are

serious and have a sense

of urgency to purchase.

Bodybuilder turns pro

STRIKE AS POSE: Dan

Gerrard posed on stage

to win an international

competition after only one

year on the circuit.

• By Annabelle Dick

A FERRYMEAD fitness model

has graduated from amateur to

professional competitions after

taking out his category at an

international bodybuilding event.

F45 Training Ferrymead manager

Dan Gerrard, 23, won the

fitness category at the Pan Pacific

Championships/NZ International

Pro Am and received a pro-card,

meaning he’s now considered

a World Fitness Federation pro

athlete.

“It was really interesting. I did

things a bit differently; I had a big

focus on work and the stuff I was

doing for F45 so I was just trying

to enjoy the process a lot more

and it paid off,” he said.

The competition incorporated

bodybuilding, figure and fitness

and was held in Auckland

recently.

The win now means Gerrard

will be able to compete alongside

top bodybuilders from around

the world.

“Competing as an amateur, it’s

all self-funded and you’re doing

it for yourself. Whereas, as a pro

athlete, I would only be able to

enter against other professionals

in shows and there’s more monetary

value involved,” he said.

Gerrard has been training in

the gym since he was 16 and

has spent the last year prepping

and competing in bodybuilding,

figure and fitness events as a male

sports model.

Gerrard initially trained in

karate but an injury put him out

of practice so he decided to use

fitness bodybuilding as a competitive

outlet.

“It was never a goal to get on

stage and compete, but I was

competing in karate and I got

injured in 2014 and that ended

my competing. So when I was

going through the rehab process,

setting goals to do a competition,

that was what got me motivated

and back on track,” he said.

His first show was the Christchurch

Grand Prix, where he won

his category and qualified for the

Southern Hemisphere Championships

earlier this year.

Gerrard also qualified for Mr

Universe but didn’t have the

freedom or support to go to the

United States for the competition.

His also competed in the

Southern Hemisphere Championships

on the Gold Coast in June

this year, where he came second

overall.

Gerrard plans to travel to Asia

and Australia to follow the bodybuilding

circuit.

UNKNOWN FATE: A decision on the future of Yew Cottage

has been delayed.

PHOTO: AKAROA CIVIC TRUST

Brakes put on sale

of Yew Cottage

• By Annabelle Dick

A DECISION on the fate of Yew

Cottage has been delayed yet

again to give city council staff

more time to explore uses for

the building.

The matter was discussed last

Thursday at a city council meeting

where the Akaroa-Wairewa

Community Board put forward

their recommendation of retaining

the building for community

purposes.

The property’s condition is

deteriorating and needs about

$200,000 of work done.

City council staff had proposed

consulting the public

about selling the building on the

open market, with a covenant

on the property to protect its

heritage values, but the community

board was reluctant to take

that step.

The board instead recommended

the city council delay a

decision until city council staff

have worked with the Akaroa

community and groups to identify

future uses for the building.

The city council accepted the

board’s recommendation.

Yew Cottage dates back to

1877. It was bought by the

former Banks Peninsula District

Council in 1981 to ensure it was

not demolished.

Akaroa is home to around 280

colonial buildings.

old room at 15 London St. They

held a walking parade on the way

to the new room at 25 Canterbury

St last Wednesday.

The board has been using the 15

London St room to hold meetings

since earthquake damage forced

the closure of the Lyttelton Service

Centre.

The new room was blessed and

a speech was given by the board’s

longest standing member, Ann

Jolliffe.

The room also hosts a sideboard

Our People

World champion junior rower

Little River’s Jack Lopas has just returned from the Junior World Rowing

Championships with a gold medal hanging around his neck, and he is straight into

NCEA exams. Bridget Rutherford spoke to him about beating his crewmate at

Maadi Cup, and holding the unofficial national record for his 2km ergometer

ACHIEVEMENT: Jack Lopas, 17, has represented New Zealand

in rowing twice and hopes to compete at the Olympics.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

So you’ve just won gold in the

double sculls– how does it feel

to be a world champion?

I’ve actually been asked that a

lot, but it’s kind of hard because

it doesn’t really feel that much

different. It’s a funny feeling

thinking you’re the top in the

world in your event.

Can you run me through the

race?

It was really rough at race

time, so we had to take that into

account. We’ve always been a bit

slower off the start, so we just

stuck to our guns and focused on

our middle kilometre. We took

the lead in the third 500m just

after the 1km mark, which

is where we wanted that to happen.

What was running through

your mind at the start line, were

you nervous?

I was the most nervous in the

heats because you don’t know

what to expect. I was a bit shaky,

and with the rough conditions

it was another thing resting on

your mind.

What about when you crossed

GOING FOR GOLD: Jack Lopas and Lenny Jenkins racing in the

Junior World Rowing Championships.

PHOTO: ROWING NEW ZEALAND

the finish line?

It was a huge relief for all that

stress to be over and not having

to worry about the result. It was a

pretty unreal feeling. It’s painful

during the race but after winning

you feel like it wasn’t too bad and

it was all worth it.

So this is your second year of

competing at juniors?

Yep, I was in the reserve double

last year. We still raced and got

second in the B final. It was

good motivation to come back

this year, and it makes it a lot

easier racing once you’ve done

it already. You have a bit more

experience.

When did you begin rowing?

I started at the end of third

form. I’ve done four years of it

now.

has eye on future Olympics

So you were at Lincoln

High School before shifting

to Christchurch Boys’ High

School, why the shift?

It was for the rowing – I was

the only rower at Lincoln, so I

was doing it once a week down

at Kerrs Reach with one other. I

started at boys’ high in 2013 – in

year 10. My mum and dad both

rowed and I have a couple of

uncles who did, and my granddad

rowed for New Zealand. So

I thought I might do it. I enjoyed

doing it by myself, but I felt like

I needed to be doing it with a

group. My parents both rowed

at club level and got a couple of

national medals.

And you would have been to a

couple of Maadi Cups, how did

you go in those?

I’ve been to three. I didn’t make

Maadi in my first year. But in

my first season competing I got a

bronze in the under-16 quadruple

sculls and then the next year I

got silver in the under-17 double

sculls, under-17 quadruple sculls

and in the under-18 quadruple

sculls. In my last season this year,

I got gold in the under-18 single,

double and quad, and a bronze in

the under-18 eight.

At Maadi the under-18 eights

are the big races to win – which

medal did you enjoy winning

the most?

I think the quad. I was the most

excited after winning it because

it’s a group of four mates who

train together the whole season.

And you’re the national record

holder for your age group

for the 2km erg, that’s pretty

impressive, what was your time?

I don’t know if it’s actually official,

but I pulled 5min 57sec. I’ve

always progressed with each erg,

I’ve never gone backwards.

You beat Olympic champion

Hamish Bond’s time didn’t you?

I pulled faster than Hamish

Bond’s time when he was my age.

I think Eric Murray and Hamish

Bond pull around the 5min 42sec

mark.

So you’re from Little River

aren’t you?

Yes, I live about 4km from the

township on a lifestyle block. I

actually went into Little River

School when I got back, because

my mum teaches there and had

been keeping the kids updated.

I went in and had a chat to all

the kids and took in my medal. I

went there from year 1-8, and my

younger brother is still there.

How many siblings do you

have?

I’ve got an older sister and three

younger brothers. We are quite a

big rugby family, all of my brothers

made Ellesmere representative

teams and two of them made

Canterbury Country teams.

Do you play rugby yourself?

ROWING NEW

ZEALAND

I used to play, last year was the

first year since I was four that I

haven’t played because I couldn’t

due to juniors. I did miss it, I

was watching all of my brothers’

games. I was playing prop in the

boys’ high 16As before I stopped

playing.

And by the sound of your

training schedule you will be

eating your mum out of house

and home, how much do you

have to eat to fuel your body?

She does notice the difference.

But I have three brothers

so they eat a lot too. You just

have to chuck in more pasta and

potatoes. Up north we would eat

two breakfasts and a full lunch

and a big dinner, then a couple

of extra bits in the middle, like a

banana and honey sandwich or

something.

So what about your double

partner, did you know him

before this year?

I met him last year at Maadi,

he beat me in all three of those

events I got silver in. He was in

juniors last year as well. But I

versed him this year at Maadi

and beat him in all three events

and he got silver in all of them.

So it was quite funny.

What are your goals with

rowing?

I think one day I do want to

compete at Olympics but that’s

quite a few years away and there’s

a long road ahead.

So you’re in your last year

of school currently, have you

decided what you will do when

you finish?

I think I’ll focus on this next

rowing season, and make a decision

then.

And when you’re not rowing,

or training or at school, what

you like to do in your spare time?

I do a lot of work for granddad

in Clarkville, just helping him

out. And hanging out with my

brothers – I try to get to as much

of their sport as I can, because

they make it to mine. But between

school and rowing, there’s

not a lot of spare time.

SCIRT programme on

the home straight

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

walls is almost complete and we’re aiming to finish construction in December.

The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing

repairs to the city's earthquake-damaged infrastructure after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood

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

by mid October.

• Governors Bay water main repairs were completed in August.

• Lyttelton is still busy with ongoing retaining wall repairs, underground pipe and roading

repairs will continue through to the end of the year.

• Work on Evans Pass retaining wall has started with rock stabilisation, and will be

finished by December.

• The large project in Mt Pleasant and Heathcote repairing wastewater, storm water

and roading is due to be completed by November.

Your support is helping us to get the job done. Thank you from the SCIRT team.

Learn the boating rules

• BY GARY MANCH,

NAVIGATIONAL SAFETY

OFFICER, LYTTELTON

THIS IS probably the quietest

time of the year on the

recreational boating front, and

at the risk of repeating myself

a thousand times it becomes

harder and harder to write

something that you may be

interested in.

However, as I never have

been known to be short of

words, I thought this week we

would talk about something

close to my heart and you will

hopefully go away thinking

“you know he is right”.

When I retired from my

old job and started with the

Harbourmaster as navigation

safety officer, I had this vision

that I would be out there on

a mission to get people to

comply with our boating rules

and reduce deaths, injuries,

and complaints, and it would

be easy.

Well, guess what, it wasn’t,

like anyone contemplating a

mission you need to get your

ducks in row first and figure

out how the campaign is going

to commence.

I can honestly say when I

started that I did not realise

Pirate’s Corner

how many waterways and

water users we have in Canterbury,

our region is over 25,000

sq km, and we have many

lakes, foreshores and rivers

that in excess of 11 per cent of

New Zealand’s recreational

boat users enjoy.

Up to 48,000 Cantabrians

use some form of vessel in my

area.

So, getting back to the

mission in hand, my aim

was and still is, to reduce the

amount of deaths, injury and

reported incidents on our

waterways.

However, the job is bigger

than I thought initially, I

have two ways to achieve this,

education, or enforcement, research

shows that in any form

of compliance work education

does not always work alone

and you need an enforcement

component to go with this.

Enforcement can range from

warnings to hefty fines.

I would love to prove to the

researchers that education can

work alone, and this is where

you guys and girls come in.

Learn the boating rules,

comply with them, then I

won’t get complaints or people

hurting or even worse killing

themselves or others, it is a

really simple solution but hard

to achieve, as we still have

people in everything from

rowing skiffs to powerboats

who either think the rules, like

wearing lifejackets, keeping

our speed down, do not apply

to them, in turn putting either

themselves and their passengers

or crews at risk.

I think that it’s a no-brainer,

learn the rules and be a safe

boat user, bloody simple

really.

Have a great day.

A reader responds to

an article two weeks

ago in Bay Harbour

News on the changes

to the Wairewa/

Lake Forsyth

catchment plan

Bill Patterson –

There are three things

wrong with Lake Forsyth

including Lake Ellesmere.

1 – Too many cooks.

2 – Failed to control the wild fowl

who excrete far more than the stock

over or in the lakes. No doubt stock

excrete more on the land which is

washed into those streams, waterways

and rivers with the Peninsula

having more than enough rainfall,

besides stock spend little time at the

lakes edge.

3 – Can`t read the weather patterns,

thus failing to keep the lakes

open and give them a decent clean

out.

Professor Skelton is correct in

his analysis, but has this governing

body looked at the human effluent

from septic tanks from Little River

which has had a number of floods

over the last five years, all emptying

out into Lake Forsyth?

Has the earthquake added

damage to the field drains and

Birdlings Flat for example. And

finally what about the wild fowl that

you frequently see grazing in large

numbers on fields around the lake

frontages and inland?

A reader responds to the

article on the new dog control

bylaw

Jenny Warmington – I have

just read about these new bylaws

where you can, or rather, can’t, take

dogs now, in Bay Harbour News.

I think they are just ridiculous –

what it actually says is that you can’t

take your dog anywhere now. I live

on Banks Peninsula and we take

our small dog with us everywhere.

He can be leashed if need be, but

he does no damage, chases nothing

or no one, just enjoys being out and

about with us.

This is a very unfriendly dog

country we live in.

If the dog is under complete control

and you pick up after him/her

then what is the problem?

Overseas, notably the United

Kingdom where we come from, you

can take your dog absolutely everywhere.

And everyone loves it.

And NZ calls itself an animal loving

country. I don’t think so.

Dog sled statue to be unveiled

• By Mary Jamieson, Lyttelton

Lions Club secretary

WHAT FUNNY weather it

has been – some days the sun

has been shining and then

there has been a hailstorm.

It is also very cold. So

different from when I was

recently walking through

the Botanical Gardens with

the Lyttelton Walking Group

admiring the displays of

daffodils and enjoying the

early spring sunshine.

Lyttelton Lions are running

a barbecue next Sunday so I

am keeping my fingers

crossed that the

lovely spring weather

returns.

On Saturday,

October 1, at 2.30pm

there will be an

unveiling of a bronze

sled dog statue in Albion

Square.

This was commissioned by

the New Zealand Antarctic

Society’s Canterbury branch to

celebrate Lyttelton’s links with

the Antarctic.

Mark Whyte

sculpted it and a

competition was

held to name the

dog, and it was given

the name Hector by

a local student.

Lyttelton Lions were very

happy to support this and I

am really looking forward

to seeing Hector in his new

home.

We are always looking for

new members in our club. If

you are the sort of person who

enjoys making new friends,

having a social life and most

importantly giving back to

your community, why not

think about getting in touch

for a chat.

Our president can be

reached on 384 6124 or 027

Local Automotive Business Takes On New Direction

Geographic and demographic changes in the

east of the city have led to many businesses

shifting with many people needing to find new

service providers.

It is nice to know that some businesses are still

there and one example is Gainsborough Auto.

They have a long established history of providing

automotive repairs for people living or working

in the east.

This business, which has been based on its

existing site for many years, recently came under

new management and with it a new direction

has been set to serve the growing needs of its

customers.

New manager, Chris Low and Office Manager,

Tracey Sheehan have been working on initiatives

to take the business through this transitional time

so a more diverse range of automotive repairs

can be delivered. Their aim is to ensure that a

consistently high level of reliable automotive

repairs and friendly service is offered to

customers at all times.

Historically, Gainsborough Auto has had a

reputation for providing the complete package.

Their experienced and skilled team can handle

any automotive repair or servicing job, taking

away any need to travel into or across town to

have a particular repair carried out.

“Whether it’s the teenager’s manual Honda or

the family sedan we can repair them, including

European and BMW. We have the experience,

expertise, technology and facilities to look after

any make or model of motor vehicle, including

diesels,” advises Tracey.

Their workshop has the latest diagnostic scan

tools that read dashboard faults, along with other

equipment such as their brake testing and rolling

road machine which simulates a car driving on

the road. They also have a transmission flush

machine along with an air conditioning service

that will flush out the system, cleaning out all the

vents while sprucing up the carpets and seats so

only clean fresh air comes out when you turn on

the air conditioning.

Located in a heavy commercial area,

Gainsborough Auto also repair light commercial

and service fleet vehicles for many major

businesses based nearby, while also taking care

of smaller repairs such as fixing the trailer. They

also carry out Warrant of Fitness inspections and

Lifesavers take silver

at world champs

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

TOP FEELING: Seb Johnson (second from left) with team

mates Zac Reid, Lewis Clareburt and Hamish Miller after

taking out silver in the Oceanman Relay.

SUMNER’S SEB Johnson and

coach Jonelle Quane came close

to earning world champion

status when the Junior Black Fins

finished second at the Lifesaving

World Championships.

The biannual event was held in

the Netherlands over the weekend,

with New Zealand’s senior

team, the Black Fins, winning

the world title on Monday.

The championship is the

largest international lifesaving

competition in the world.

The senior squad won the

national teams’ title for the third

time in a row after first prising

the title from Australia in Adelaide

in 2012, and then winning

again in France in 2014.

Competitors earned points

depending on their placing in

each event. The junior team

finished with 735. But their rivals

Australia ended up trumps with

926. Italy finished third on 546

points.

Johnson’s competition was

highlighted by strong performances

throughout.

He was part of the team that

won gold in the tube rescue and

silver in the Oceanman Relay.

Quane was head coach of the

Junior Black Fins during the

competition, and said the breakthrough

performance of captain

Hamish Miller helped the team

along the way.

“Team captain Hamish Miller

led the team from every possible

angle and was relentless,” she

said.

“His performances resulted in

two individual bronze medals in

the men’s board race, Oceanman

race and was part of our silver

medal [winning] Oceanman

relay team with Seb Johnson,

Lewis Clareburt and Zac Reid,”

she said.

Quane said another top performance

came from Jamie Gedye

in the bleach flags event, when

she fought for third place.

NICK JONES has only taken

part in three jet ski races – but

has already won two, including

one on Saturday.

Jones, an Ohoka plumber,

was one of nearly 40 endurance

riders to take part in the

Lyttelton to Akaroa event last

weekend.

The initial race course had to

be modified due to 2-3m swells

at Godley Head. It was changed

to two laps, starting from the

harbour to Port Levy and back

around Quail Island to the

finish.

Canterbury Jet Sports Club

president Glenn Chisholm said

safety had to come first when

deciding on the course.

“It was a compromised beginning,

but when you have 2-3m

swells it’s just not safe for the

support boats to be out there in

that . . . we were looking every

half a day, constantly monitoring

it for health and safety. They

still did the whole course probably

between 40-something and

50 minutes,” he said.

The overall distance covered

in the race was 78km, which

Jones completed in 42m 31s.

“I’m stoked. Throughout the

SPORTS

Ohoka plumber

wins jet ski race

race I kept looking around to

see if I was actually going in the

right direction. I was actually

more stoked with my average

speed through the race, which

was about 112km/h,” Jones said.

Mr Chisholm said the club

was given the choice on whether

to run the original planned

event, but went with the safe

option so no one was injured.

“The coastguard gave us that

responsibility. They were happy

for us to run because their boat

can handle it, but I was more

concerned for our support

boats,” he said.

“There were no injuries, we

had one ski blow up, but they

are machines, they do that. It

was the only two stroke there.”

The club is now moving into

their summer season and will

be hosting events around the

city, including races at Lake

Roto Kohatu, Harewood, and

New Brighton.

The 3 Step Plan to Make

Healthy Habits Stick

Health and Wellness Coach Annabelle Matson gives us her 3 step

plan on how to make healthy habit stick. Add, modify and delete,

it’s as easy as ABC

When it comes to eating

habits and making

improvements to our

health in general, trying

to change absolutely everything about

our lifestyle overnight, very rarely

works. We often think: “if I can’t eat /

do things perfectly, I shouldn’t bother

at all”. As a recovering perfectionist I

totally get that. However this clearly

doesn’t support success. It just keeps us

stuck right where we are, on the dieting

roller coaster, never seeing results for

the long term.

I always say to my clients, “overtime

not overnight”. We want to do things

gradually, because that’s what results in

permanent change. Why weight loss and

many health programs often don’t work,

is because we go from eating whatever

we want, to restricting everything.

So instead of drastically restricting

everything, use my 3 step tool – add,

modify and delete.

A: Pick one thing you want to add

Your Local

Friendly

Dental

Team

B: Pick one thing you want to modify

C: Pick one thing you want to delete

For example:

Add: A morning meditation to centre

you for the day.

Modify: Refined sugar intake. Alcohol

is a huge source of sugar – so instead of

drinking during the week, stick to a few

just on the weekends.

Delete: Eating after 8pm.

The Hub Hornby: 349 5150

Bush Inn Centre: 348 7867

Commit to the add, modify, delete plan for 30 days. Once that all becomes a habit –

start a new add, modify, delete plan.

When you do steps incrementally like that, it creates new habits. You won’t feel

overwhelmed and it feels really manageable. Like magic, it all starts to become a

lifestyle that you LOVE and that are you motivated to sustain.

BAY HARBOUR

REAL ESTATE

Birdling’s Flat – something completely different

$179,000

2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 900 m2 Land Area - Freehold Tenure

What a fascinating property and a true reflection

of the vendor’s vision and hard work. The vendors

have turned this bare piece of land into something

quite special. They have fully fenced this level 900m2

property, then proceeded to add so much value.

Two very tidy caravans, roofed and with indoor/

outdoor living areas attached. Wonderful BBQ and

entertaining areas, numerous useful sheds and a

container. Mains water and power, shower-room and

bathroom, composting toilet, very nicely planted and

landscaped and the quality of the builders work is

superb. Cleverly done so there is still room to build

a house if desired and the icing on the cake is that it

comes fully furnished and decorated, nice artwork,

seating, BBQ, quad bike. Six wheel Argo ATV, jet-ski,

aluminium boat and outboard etc etc. Just move in

and enjoy this unique property, such good value here.

I wanted to be a part

of working with the

a new future

He is a strong

delighted to have him as a

member of any City Council

~ Garry Moore, former mayor

of Christchurch

Paul Lonsdale Councillor for Heathcote

Consistency will be Essential


Paul Lonsdale

Co

I am a Cantabrian who is independent and not aligned to any

political party or local candidate group.

I am married to Denise and together we

have three children.

I have served three years as Councillor

for the Hagley Ferrymead ward, which is

arguably one of the most affected in the

city. It has been a very busy time with

a lot of planning and decision-making

around building resilience for the future

and working closely with the affected

communities on how we achieve that.

Throughout this term I have always been

accessible even during times of heavy

workload. This has enabled me to develop

an intimate knowledge and understanding

of all the local issues.

With the changes to the wards boundaries,

I am standing for the new Heathcote ward.

I am committed to the area being at the

I now carry a large

amount of knowledge

setting me

apart from other

candidates.

early planning stages of building our new

family home in Heathcote.

I came into council knowing that this term

would not be easy but wanted to be a

part of working with the community to

develop a new future for this city. We have

worked hard to get our finances in order

and we have worked hard to build back

trust with the government. Most of all we

have worked hard to build back trust with

our community. We have come a long way

from when I took office three years ago.

Over this term I have been involved in all

aspects of the council and its subsidiaries. I

believed this necessary to give me a better

understanding of how the council works

and the ability to influence their direction.

I now carry a large amount of knowledge

setting me apart from other candidates.

Safer Christchurch

I have a bold vision that Christchurch is the safest city in New Zealand

I remember the day Christchurch first

received accreditation as an international

safe city; at the time I was the manager of the

Central City and a big part of my role was to

help reduce the anti-social behaviors.

I worked with a number of agencies including

the police and the city council to reduce inner

city issues and just prior the earthquakes

the police were about to release their latest

statistics highlighting we had radically

reduced anti social behavior.

Christchurch was the first large city in New

Zealand to receive safe city accreditation

from the World Health Organization and this

accreditation helped dispel the popular belief

- fueled by the media - that Christchurch was

an unsafe city.

When I became chair of Safer Christchurch

in March last year I was disappointed to see

that our safe city accreditation had been

suspended.

I worked with our staff and strategic partners

to refresh our safe city strategy which

we completed June this year along with

regaining our accreditation.

Having the feeling of safety is a basic human

right so I have a bold vision that Christchurch

is the safest city in New Zealand

When you have strong communities you have

a strong city so this strategy aims to ensure

that all community members, including those

who are disadvantaged and vulnerable feel

safe and welcome and are able to participate

in city life.

To achieve this we have identified some key principles and

priorities to get us to our goal:

Priority 1: Proactive partnerships that

have a shared commitment to a safe city

Priority 2: Reducing and preventing

injuries

Injury in New Zealand both intentional

and unintentional is the leading cause of

death among people aged 1 – 34

Priority 3: Reducing and preventing the

incidence and effects of crime

We will to work with key stakeholders

to identify and respond to crime, fear of

crime, and antisocial behavior issues.

Priority 4: Enhancing safety on our roads

Between 2010 and 2014, 53% of crashes

in Christchurch occurred at intersections.

So we will support the implementation

of the road safety action plan for

Christchurch city.

Priority 5: Building in safety

We have the best opportunity to build in

safety while we are rebuilding our roads,

footpaths and buildings. This will support

making the city and neighborhoods

vibrant, safe and inclusive.

Paul Lonsdale Councillor for Heathcote

Consistency will be Essential


uncil

Experience. Passion. Commitment.

Our Waterways

I want to see us continue to improve

the quality of our waterways.

Because good water quality is essential for

supporting ecosystems, recreation, cultural values

and the health of our residents.

Through the development of our long-term plan

we have budgeted for upgrading our wastewater

and stormwater infrastructure, which will reduce

contaminants getting into our waterways.

However, we need to continue our programme of

waterway and wetland plantings and also working

with community groups and others to protect our

waterways.

We need to harness

modern technology to help us

monitor not only our water but

also our air quality.

When I get time I like to get out and help support

the local groups like the Mahoe-nui bush restoration

project and local rubbish cleanups. It is a great way

for me to help out and get some exercise in.

However, we also need to continue to build the

knowledge of our waterways through monitoring.

To do this, Christchurch joined other major New

Zealand cities as partners in the NEC, which aims to

enable New Zealand to become a smart nation.

We need to harness modern technology to help us

monitor not only our water but also our air quality.

This term’s involvements

Over this term I have been involved in all aspects of the

council and its subsidiaries.

This has not only given me a greater understanding of the council and the

community, it has also given me a huge amount of knowledge to assist the

community to drive progress, which sets me apart from other candidates.

I am also on six boards and all my directors’ fees have been donated to the

mayoral relief fund. However, I still carry the workload and the liabilities that

come with those appointments.

Key Pieces of work

this term:

Chair of Safer Christchurch

Interagency Group.

The city had lost its safe city

accreditation so when I took over

chairing the group in March last year;

my goal was to regain accreditation as

an International Safe City. I achieved

that result in June this year along with

a refreshing Safer Christchurch Strategy

and remodeling the governance group.

Worked with the building

control group to help

formulate what is now

known as the “end to end”

process.

I was involved in setting up the pilot

programme, which now has become

synonymous with best practice.

Chair of the Capital

Endowment Fund Working

Group.

Looking at ways to maximize the $100

million dollar fund’s returns to the

council.

Reforming the delivery and

management of the Council

Social Housing

with the set up of the housing

management board through to

establishing a new trust to take over

and manage the councils social

housing. This has been a massive piece

of work of which the value cannot

be underestimated as currently the

portfolio losses $680k a month.

Worked closely with the

Christchurch Adventure Park

to find a funding source so Christchurch

did not lose that opportunity. The

council committed to investing $2m into

the project late last year.

Annual Plan

Through this last annual plan process I was

very pleased to see that our careful hand and

conservative approach in developing and setting

the long term plan direction has provided some

good news for Christchurch.

We have enabled lower borrowing, lower rate increases and a delay

in the capital release programme.

This will give us time to consider more innovative ways we can fund

our future borrowing to ensure we bounce forward as a city.

These changes are largely due to a higher growth rate than was

expected within the city’s rating base, an $80m greater insurance

payout than was budgeted for through the long term plan.

Obviously the major contributor to this good news was the

insurance settlement prior to Christmas delivering an $80m

decrease to what we had budgeted for in our long-term plan.

I am also pleased to see we are taking a more realistic approach to

our capital programme, but I am also mindful that we have a lot of

work to do in this space and if there were ways we could speed this

up that we would look for ways to make this happen.

We need to continue to streamline our processes and prudent

financial management of our operational expenditure so we can

deliver greater savings without the loss of quality of service.

We often get complaints about the state of our road-side gardens,

weeds in road median strips, so I want to see the council hold our

contractors accountable and ensure they are delivering what we are

paying for.

This will give us time to

consider more innovative ways we can

fund our future borrowing to ensure we

bounce forward as a city.

Obesity Issue

We need to get more people

walking, cycling and using

public transport.

I was astonished to learn that New

Zealand has one of the worst obesity

rates in the world. We need to get our

people walking and cycling more to help

reduce this obesity issue.

The proportion of residents who believe

we are a cycle friendly city has fallen

from a low 54% to a ridiculously low

27%. So we need to stay committed to

building our major and local cycle ways.

We need to commit to completing

leisure walkways like the coastal

pathway and get on and repair our

footpaths and create pedestrian areas

that are safe and attractive to walk

around.

We also need to assist getting

commuters out of their cars and onto

our public transport system. However,

we need to make sure that our public

transport system is efficient, safe and

dependable.

If we don’t – there will be 70,000 more

car trips through the city on a daily basis.

Our roads just will not be able to cope.

I have observed

Paul Lonsdale mature as a City

Councillor since he was elected.

He is thoughtful in debates and

a good listener. He is a strong

advocate for his constituents and

I would have been delighted to

have him as a member of any

City Council I presided over.

~ Garry Moore, former mayor

of Christchurch

Every election is important and just as important is your

vote. The city is now halfway through its rebuild and we

need you to provide direction, so make your vote count.

I have served this community for three years now and

want to continue to do so for another term. I have

represented this community well and we have got a lot

over the line, including funding for the Coastal Pathway,

Scarborough Paddling Pool, Sumner Library, Museum

and Community Centre, Redcliffs Volunteer Library, Mt

Pleasant Community Centre and Heathcote Volunteer

Library just to name some of the more significant

projects.

Some of the issues

council should address

in the next three years:

• Improving the quality of our waterways

• Get more people walking, cycling and using

public transport

• Reduce natural hazard risk and improve our

ability to respond

• Increase our sense of belonging

• Revitalise our central city

• Speed up repair of our roads and footpaths

• Continue to strengthen local communities

by empowering them with a hand up, not a

hand out approach to the way we deliver local

outcomes

• Reduce the need for rate rises through

prudent financial management
