MCCORMACKS BAY residents

appear unlikely to spend

$50,000 to appeal against a

kindergarten being built in their

area.

They spent months trying to

stop Kidsfirst setting up a 248 sq

m kindergarten next to the Mt

Pleasant Community Centre,

which they say will block their

view, cause traffic issues and

ground contamination.

But resource consent hearing

commissioner Justine Ashley

has granted Kidsfirst permission

to establish a kindergarten.

Resident Diane Keats said

an appeal to Environment

Canterbury against the decision

couldn’t proceed because of the

cost, $50,000.

“We’re not appealing it because

we’d need $50,000,” she

said.

Mrs Keats said they feel

defeated.

“I’ve met a lot of residents

around here and they think it’s

absolutely ridiculous. But what

do you do? There’s nothing we

can do,” she said.

The centre will sit 30m west

of the former kindergarten and

will run longer from 8am to

5pm.

The kindergarten will also cater

to 50 children, which is more

than their previous site which

allowed a maximum of 30.

News..........................3, 7 & 10

LAST WEEK we profiled a

good guy from Sumner in Tony

Murdoch.

Today we feature another: Scott

Razor Robertson on pages 4-5.

Razor is coaching the Crusaders

next season, and if his tenure with

Canterbury and the style they

have played under his guidance is

anything to go by, the Crusaders

will be very, very tough to beat in

2017.

But reporter Bridget Rutherford

gets much more out of Razor than

just rugby. He’s a good talker and

communicator (no wonder he’s a

good sports coach) and he reveals

a number of interesting tidbits, including

that famous or infamous

breakdancing thing of his, and

how he got his nickname.

He even took the Ranfurly

Shield down to Our Lady Star of

the Sea School where his children

attend (see page 14).

Quake affects tourist numbers

BAY HARBOUR

In Brief

PAGE 3

• By Annabelle Dick

AKAROA’S tourism industry

has been up and down as

a result of this month’s 7.8

magnitude earthquake.

A number of businesses have

experienced a drop in numbers

as visitors cancel trips to Akaroa

fearing more earthquakes in

Canterbury.

But some have seen an increase

in bookings as business

has stalled in Canterbury’s other

tourist-friendly coastal town

Kaikoura.

Akaroa has become the main

hub for marine animal encounters

in the region following the

North Canterbury earthquakes.

Kaikoura’s tourism industry is

in disarray while the region is in

a state of emergency.

Hanmer

Springs has

seen a large decrease

in visitor

numbers due to

its proximity to

the epicentre.

Dolphin Encounter Kaikoura

and Whale Watch Kaikoura are

closed until further notice due

to extensive damage caused to

the township.

Christchurch i-SITE has been

referring tourists, planning

to go to Kaikoura, to Akaroa

instead.

Black Cat Cruises, which

offers dolphin watching and

swimming experiences, has had

to increase capacity due to the

demand.

“People that were planning on

going to Kaikoura are now coming

to Akaroa. We’re launching

one of our boats a little

earlier than planned,” sales and

marketing manager Natasha

Lombart (left) said.

The company usually runs

three boats in a season and

introduces a fourth just before

Christmas – but the extra fleet

has been launched two weeks

early.

“There is a demand for our

swim service from Kaikoura

passengers. The boats take up

Phone 389 3431

to 99 passengers, but with the

dolphin swim we can only take

up to 12,” Miss Lombart said.

Black Cat Cruises didn’t

know how much business had

increased by, as it usually sees

a rise over the summer period

regardless.

“It’s good we can provide this

service close by in Canterbury

but at the same time no one

wants to benefit from something

like this.”

Meanwhile, Akaroa Criterion

Motel owner Felicity Taylor

owner said she hasn’t seen as

many benefits following the

tragedy in Kaikoura.

“We’ve had some bookings

from people who were meant

to go to Kaikoura and their

has launched a fourth vessel

to keep up with demand for

services.

agents have recommend they

come here. At the same time

we’ve had lots of cancellations

as well from people nervous to

come here because of the earthquakes,”

Mrs Taylor said.

Bully Hayes duty manager

Tong Hou said the eatery has

had customers who’ve come

to Akaroa as an alternative to

Kaikoura.

But they’ve also seen a drop

in numbers as trips have been

cancelled due to State Highway

1 being closed along the top half

of South Island’s coastline.

“It hasn’t been that much busier

– the day after the earthquake

we had cancellations from tourist

groups who were due to come

here from the north.”

CENTRE SET TO OPEN

THe Heathcote Valley

Community Centre is set to

open in two weeks. The centre

will also include a volunteer

library and has been built on

the Bridle Path Rd site of the

former community centre. The

previous centre and library

were demolished following the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Work began on site at the end

of June this year to create a

new facility which will have

several meeting areas, a kitchen,

bathroom facilities along with

a large deck. The centre will be

opened at 5.30pm on December

14.

PLAQUE UNVEILING

A plaque will be unveiled tomorrow

to honour Collett’s Corner

in Lyttelton. Collett’s Chemist,

opened by D.E.L Collett, sat on

the corner of London St and

Oxford St and was often referred

to as Collett’s Corner. The

pharmacy treated ship crewmen

with concocted remedies.

The plaque unveiling will mark

105 years since the chemist

opened on December 1, 1911.

Mr Collett’s granddaughter Ann

Toomey and Banks Peninsula

Community Board chairwoman

Christine Wilson will mark the

now-vacant corner with a plaque

funded by the city council.

Our People

Seaside environment keeps

Sumner’s Scott Robertson is gearing up for

his first season coaching his old team, the

Crusaders. Bridget Rutherford spoke to him

about his goals for the season, where he

learned to breakdance and whether he is a

true Cantabrian yet

HOME: Scott Robertson

says Sumner is a great

place to live, and enjoys

the surf and community.

So what have you been doing

in the lead up to pre-season

training?

I recovered after the week of

the Mitre 10 Cup final physically,

mentally and I detoxed

as well (laughs), it was a good

celebration. But it was a great

way to finish a number of years

of Canterbury rugby. Then in

the second week I went over to

the Roosters in the NRL to do a

bit of professional development

and leadership, and work around

defence so I could up-skill myself

coming into the season. New

Zealand Rugby Union has a great

relationship with clubs around

Australasia, and Sydney had

some good surf. It was a great

way to transition from Mitre 10

Cup to Super Rugby and start

our planning phase.

What do you think will be the

toughest part of your new role

at the Crusaders next season?

Probably knowing myself, I’ll

bring a lot of energy and creative

new ideas. So I’ve got to make

sure I get the balance right and

bring what I need, and keep it to

the critical few things that will

make the difference.

The Crusaders have a proud

and successful history, does

that add any pressure?

Expectations are great, I love

it. I had it with Canterbury that

we’d go and be successful, and

with that comes high standards

and brings a bit of pressure you

can use to create an edge. If

there were no expectations I just

wouldn’t feel the same.

What are your goals for the

season?

My philosophy is to make

people better on and off the

field. I just want the team to

perform and make sure when

we’re under pressure in these

critical moments we win those.

It’s something we haven’t nailed,

and we’ve had opportunities but

haven’t taken them. That excites

me.

And you played for the Crusaders

and Canterbury back in

the day, did you ever see yourself

coaching them?

Yes. Back in 1996 and 97 I

would walk in with a playbook

and try and create new plays and

see new ways of doing things.

It’s the way it is now, it’s just a

natural progression. It’s been a

pathway; it’s taken a considerable

amount of time to get here from

retiring nine years ago. I’ve done

a lot of hours.

Is this a stepping stone to

coach the All Blacks?

The All Blacks is a totally different

level and experience is

critical. A lot of the coaches

have been overseas and had a

lot of different experiences with

different cultures and competitions.

With the All Blacks you

play international teams and you

need to understand that environment.

Coaching overseas gives

you a chance to experience that.

I’m in no rush, I’d love to do that

but I could see myself coaching

afar first.

Being a former Crusader,

does it make you a bit more

patriotic while coaching?

Of course – I shed a lot of

blood, cartilage and meniscus

with the Crusaders. It was successful,

I loved it and it made me

a better person. Some of my best

mates and memories were with

that team, it sounds pretty cliche,

but it’s a dream.

And you come from up north

don’t you?

I’m from the Mount

(Maunganui). It’s a bottle top

question – who was the first

person to be drafted for a Super

Team. I made New Zealand

Colts, and Vance Stewart picked

me out and I was drafted and

came to Canterbury.

So are you a Cantabrian now?

People ask me that all the time. I

had a great up-bringing and my

home is the Mount in regards to

childhood friends and things.

But I made my adult connections

down here. My wife’s from down

here and I had my children here.

But I’m really fortunate to have

red and black in my veins.

And you spent a fair bit of

time coaching NZ under-20s. Is

part of that role to groom upand-coming

players?

The object is to develop players,

on and off the field, because

they’re young men and they’ve

got to make some big decisions.

The other was win. If you’re

in the black jersey going to a

tournament, you’re playing for

silverware. I managed to do it

one of the two times. For me,

my biggest learning was our loss

to Ireland – which some other

teams have had too recently

– but it’s a different style and

the preparation is different for

different teams, weather, and

the mindset. I’m a better coach

because I understand that.

Over the years, who is a

young player that you’ve

watched and thought they had a

big future?

The most gifted player I’ve ever

seen is Jordie Barrett. He’s going

to the Hurricanes which is the

second toughest thing for me

outside the Ireland loss. He’s an

extreme talent, and a great kid

with great work ethic.

Better than his brother

Beauden?

I don’t like to compare them.

They’ve got similar skill-sets.

For us it’s a wait and see. I think

what sets Jordie apart is his

mind-set – he’s the ultimate professional

and has an incredible

knack of performing under pressure.

That sets the greats apart.

Scott Robertson

‘Razor’ happy

Did you try and get him to

stay down here?

I spent a lot of time, but his

family was first for him. And

he’ll get to play outside his

brother, his best mate. It was a really

hard and emotional decision

for him and it meant a lot to him

to play for us.

When you were a rookie, who

was a senior player that you

looked up to?

I made a lot of really good

mates and everyone brought a lot

of different things. That group

of players that we had is unlike

any group that’s been together

for a long time. If you look at the

coaches, we had Robbie Deans,

Steve Hansen, Wayne Smith

and they also had success post-

Crusaders. I heard a great quote

– truly inspiring coaches, or the

great coaches, coach a player to

become great coaches, and their

players become coaches. It’s a

generational thing. And from

that group we had myself, Leon

MacDonald, Tabai Matson, Todd

Blackadder, Dave Hewett, Mark

Hammett, Daryl Gibson and

Aaron Mauger. I think the whole

environment helped shape us. It

didn’t just teach us how to play,

but it taught us the game, and

that’s what we’re doing now.

It was that era where the

Crusaders were on the Meadow

Fresh milk cartons – did you

make it onto one of those?

No, I’ve broken my nose too

many times (laughs).

You went and played in

France and Japan following

your time with the AB’s, what

did you learn from your stints

there?

The first year in France I struggled.

I missed the structure of the

Crusaders and I kept asking why

do the French do it this way? But

once I figured that out I ended

up really loving and enjoying it.

I learned French and the French

way. I learned a lot of what I do

now as a coach. It was the same

in Japan, I learned a lot of their

traditions. It made me appreciate

what we’ve got here in New

Zealand, and New Zealand rugby

now. There’s a lot of benefits of

going away and coming back.

Maybe I’ll coach over there one

day.

How’s your Japanese?

My wife’s pretty handy at it, but

I can do the basics.

And the most important question,

where did you learn to

breakdance?

My mum’s got a bit of rhythm.

I never expected to be dancing, it

came from my playing days when

the hoo hay razor ray song was

pulled out. I was put on the spot

and got called out and had to

front up. If we win I’m more than

happy to dance.

Where does the nickname

Razor come from?

It’s a bit of self-promotion,

probably a bit like the dancing.

We used to give ourselves a

couple of nicknames. We’d say

I used to cut people in half and

my shoulders were razor blades.

SLOAN

I created a bit of an alias as Razor

Ray and it’s taken its own little

storylines. So I named myself

(laughs).

And you settled in Sumner

when you came down, why did

you choose to live there by the

beach?

I’m a surfer, I love the sea and

I enjoy the drive to Sumner. It’s

a safe environment and it makes

me happy. I’m involved with the

great community and it reminds

me of the Mount. The kids enjoy

it too.

Speaking of family, how did

you meet your wife?

I met my wife, Jayne, at Lincoln.

I’ve said this before, but my

wife got a double degree – hers

and mine. I met her when I first

arrived in town and she’s been

through all the highs and lows

with me. I had 15 operations as

a player and she nursed me back

spare time.

to the field. We’ve been through

a lot.

What does she do?

She works at the local school

and does extra-curricular sport

for the kids and runs sporting

competitions and that sort

of thing. She’s the sports coordinator.

Is she a bit of a rugby widow?

I was away over 100 days this

year with the NZ under-20s. But

we understand it and she makes

it work. We’ve got family support

at Sumner. I’m lucky to have my

role but we make sure we get

away as a family.

Sumner was hit quite hard in

the earthquakes, did you have

any issues with insurance or

damage to your home?

Yeah, we had a red zone section

up on the hill. We had five years

in court with the Government,

but we got a great result. We can

look back and the right thing was

done and we’ve moved on with

that. We’ve learned patience and

a lot about the law.

What was the most rewarding

moment of your rugby career

so far?

My first test for the All Blacks.

We played Australia in Christchurch

and my family came down.

I fulfilled a huge goal for myself.

Did you win that test?

Don’t ask! (In 1998 Australia beat

the All Blacks 27-23).

We had better move on then,

what was your most embarrassing

moment?

When I played for Canterbury

I was a reserve and came on, and

I unzipped my tracksuit and ran

on the field and I wasn’t wearing

my playing jersey, I still had my

warm-up T-shirt on. I was in the

huddle before I realised – everyone

was pointing at me as I ran on

and I kept running. I had to run

back and swap it at the next break.

Some coaches lose their fitness

after they finish playing, that

doesn’t seem the case for you?

I do a bit of stand-up paddle

boarding. It’s great for me and

for my strength in my core and

legs. I get to the gym and I swim

a lot. I have to do it most days

otherwise I get a bit edgy.

What do you like to do in

your spare time?

I spent a lot of time with the

kids, and going to their sport and

enjoying what they’re doing as a

family so I connect with them. In

the afternoon or the evenings we

are either playing tennis, passing

a ball, or playing touch. I’ve got

three boys, aged 12, 10 and eight.

They play rugby, touch, tennis

and they surf. They’ve got a really

good balance.

You’re well-qualified to give

them some tips.

I just try to be a dad not a

coach. I do coach one of their

teams, and I give them tips and

help out, but away from everyone’s

eyes so there’s no pressure

on them.

in Akaroa cemeteries after

pressure from residents.

The now-defunct Akaroa-

Wairewa Community Board has

been asking the city council to

investigate if more plots could

be created in the township’s

cemeteries for several years.

The city council will release

39 full burial plots at the Anglican,

Catholic and Dissenters

cemeteries to

extend their

use for about

eight years.

“I’m very

happy we’ve

got this progress.

It happened

around

the earthquake and we felt here

it was being overlooked, so I’m

really pleased with the work

they’ve done,” Banks Peninsula

Community Board member

Janis Haley (above) said.

There are four cemeteries

in Akaroa, but the French

cemetery is closed and the Anglican,

Catholic and Dissenters

cemeteries are full except for

pre-purchased plots or second

interments.

The new plots would not be

available for pre-purchase.

FULL: All of Akaroa’s cemeteries are in need of more plots as they’re either at full capacity or all

remaining plots have been pre-purchased. ​

City council staff have been

telling residents to bury their

loved ones at Duvauchelle or

Le Bons cemeteries due to the

shortage.

Once the new plots are filled,

it’s likely people will be referred

to out-of-town cemeteries again.

“Eventually it is anticipated

that all Akaroa burials and

ash interments will need to be

redirected to the Duvauchelle

Cemetery,” city council neighbourhood

and sports parks

operations manager Al Hardy

said.

The city council is looking

at creating more burial plots

throughout Christchurch and

Banks Peninsula.

A majority of Banks Peninsula

cemeteries have enough space

capacity for several more decades

as only one or two burials

take place at those grounds each

year.

Those sites include Duvauchelle

Cemetery, Kaituna

Valley Cemetery, Le Bons Bay

Cemetery, Little River Cemetery,

Pigeon Bay Cemetery and

Wainui Cemetery.

The city council is responsible

for 26 cemeteries across Canterbury.

The Lyttelton Anglican

Cemetery and the Lyttelton

Catholic and Public Cemetery,

which have no, or very few,

full burial plots available for

purchase, will be investigated

for space.

The city council will also

look at increasing capacity at

the Diamond Harbour Memorial

Gardens Cemetery which

largely remains unused due to

drainage and layout issues.

Consultation

open for

cycleway projects

• By Annabelle Dick

PUBLIC CONSULTATION is

open for the Heathcote Expressway

and the Rapanui to Shag Rock

cycleway projects.

The Heathcote Expressway

goes from Heathcote through to

Woolston, Opawa, Waltham and

Sydenham into the central city.

It connects Heathcote, Ferrymead

and Woolston as well as

key destinations such as Ferrymead

Historic Park, The Tannery and Ara

Institute of Canterbury.

City council staff are holding

drop-in sessions for residents to

find out more about the project tomorrow

at Woolston Market Space

from 6–8pm, and next Wednesday

at St Mary’s Church Hall from

4–6pm. The city council is also

looking for feedback on the second

and third stages of the Rapanui to

Shag Rock Cycleway.

The cycleway will travel from

the central city to the Ferrymead

Bridge where it connects to the

Coastal Pathway.

The Coastal Pathway, which will

run from Ferrymead Bridge to

Sumner, is funded separately to the

Major Cycle Routes programme.

There are two alternatives for

this part of the Rapanui to Shag

Rock Cycleway but both follow

roughly the same route.

• BY GARY MANCH,

NAVIGATIONAL SAFETY OFFICER,

LYTTELTON

I ALWAYS find it hard to believe

that Christmas comes around

so quickly each year and with

it comes our long summer days

and good weather.

In spite of the odd quirk of

nature, we really do live in a

beautiful country.

This was brought home to

me a few weeks ago when I was

using my quad bike to go from

the Amberley beach up the

river to the highway, travelling

through the big cliffs that are

Centre. Tom Keeley has been

providing Christmas trees

to the club for 21 years –

almost as long as the club

has been in existence. He

cuts them on the morning

of the sale to ensure they are

nice and fresh and will last

until at least Christmas Day.

The trees range in size and

shape so there’s one to suit

everyone. Ferrymead Rotary

thousands of years old, and there

was not a soul around, the birds

were singing, we had a picnic by

the river – I am sure you get the

picture.

Going to places like that gives

me plenty of time to think, and

that can be scary sometimes. As

you have seen before, some of my

articles can be a little random,

but hopefully there is always a

message there for you.

So when you are on the water,

whether it’s in a canoe or a large

power boat, if a sign or buoy

states it’s a five knot area, it

means just that; they are not

there solely for safety reasons.

This applies to the rules

about not going faster than five

knots (around 8km/h or a fast

walking pace) when within 50m

of swimmers or other vessels,

or 200m from the shore or a

structure.

If a buoy or sign states that no

areas are reserved for swimmers,

Democracy rules

Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board member Tim

Lindley talks about his

recent induction onto

the board

It’s now five weeks since I was

inducted into the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board as a

newbie community board member for

Heathcote. It’s been a very interesting

time and three strong impressions

stand out from the buzz and busyness

of simply getting started.

First, the quality of our democratic

systems here in New Zealand. The

manuals for newly elected officials

that describe how we must conduct

ourselves are long and detailed. It

is very clear that a requirement for

‘integrity’ is just as fully enshrined in

our institutions as is the requirement

for ‘democracy.’

New Zealand always lists among the

top countries for freedom from corruption.

If you ponder on it, without

integrity, democracy becomes pretty

meaningless. I can’t help but feel very

thankful for those who have gone before

and who have made our country

become what it is.

Second, the role expected of a

community board member here in

Pirate’s Corner

people competing to use our

recreational waterways, and it’s

clear that, without some form of

rules, it would be mayhem out

there.

The simple solution is know

Christchurch. It’s a part-time position

that comes with a strong expectation

that the board member will form a

connection between community and

council. We are to get out and know

and understand groups within our

communities and, at the same time,

get up to speed on how council works

and makes plans for the future. Put

simply, our role is to help people

understand council and council

understand people, so that the actions

council takes and the plans it makes

really are in the best interests of our

city.

Third, there is a lot to be done. I

have particular interests in our estuary

and waterways; in promoting safe

and effective cycleways; and in helping

make our city a good place to live

in. It is a privilege to have been elected

and I am looking forward to the work

ahead.

Tips to keep safe on the water this summer

the rules, don’t be a prat, and

be courteous to everyone out

there so that we all get through

the summer without incident

or injury. That’s it from me this

week, be safe out there.

Amazing Green-Fee Package

Play 2 Rounds on the Best Links Golf Course in Christchurch

with a Motorised Cart and 2 Free Beers for $59.00 (usually $131.20)

Here’s how you can take advantage of this great offer…

Pick up your phone and dial 383 0307.Then press 2 and tell James or Moon in the Pro-shop that you are

calling about the Green-Fee Package in the paper and you want to book a tee time for 2 players. Tee times

for Saturday aren’t always available but for most other days you will be able to get the tee time you want.

Here’s what to do on the day you are playing…

Cut this ad out of the paper and hand it in at the Pro-shop at least 15 minutes before your tee time. In return

we will give you the key to a motorised cart and a voucher for 2 free handles of beer to be enjoyed after

the game. Then hop in the cart and go and enjoy the best greens and fairways in Christchurch (some of the

pros who played in our recent Pro-am reckoned they were the best greens and fairways in NZ).

Here’s what to do after the game…

Throw your clubs in the car and return the cart to the Pro-shop. Then claim your free beers at the bar. If you

don’t like beer - no worries. Just ask for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine instead. Then relax on the deck

after a great day’s golf.

That’s it, just pick up that phone and make the call…. 383 0307.

Electric vehicle

charging station

opens at

Little River

AN ELECTRIC vehicle charging

station has been installed at

Little River.

Electricity network company

Orion opened a free charging

station adjacent to the Little

River Cafe & Store and last

Wednesday.

Both fast charger and a standard

charger were installed at the

site.

A fast charger typically charges

an electric vehicle in around

20 to 30min, while a standard

charger will take a few hours to

fully charge a car.

Electric vehicles on the market

today have a range of 100km to

400km.

“We want to encourage that

future and facilitate our customer’s

ability to benefit from

EVs. To do that we need to give

people the confidence to buy EVs

by providing them with places to

charge their vehicles away from

their homes,” Orion chief executive,

Rob Jamieson said.

The station will be free to use

until the end of January and users

will have to pay about $10 to

use it from February onwards.

Orion is planning to roll-out

more chargers across Canterbury

in the next few months.

Cards well received

• By Annabelle Dick

ZOE ELMEY is only 11 but

already she is selling her

hand-crafted cards in England.

The Sumner School pupil and

budding artist is selling her own

range of cards under ‘Lots of

Love Art’ and has been selling

them to local businesses for the

past year.

But her biggest success so far

came during a recent holiday

to the United Kingdom when

Eastbourne store Barley Sugar

started selling the line.

Zoe and her mother Becky

Nisbet approached shopkeepers

and asked if they were interested

in her cards – they bought 32

cards to sell in their two shops.

“We’re all very excited,” Ms

Nisbet said.

“It confirms her talent the

more it spreads. She’s really going

to go somewhere.”

It’s not the only out-of-town

store interested in Zoe’s work,

the cards are sold at popular

holiday destination Waiheke

Island.

“Again the shops loved her

cards and Escapade in the tourist

area of Oneroa bought 18

cards, and a local art and craft

shop bought 35 to sell,” Ms

Nisbet said.

The Hub in Hanmer Springs

has also bought her cards – so

far she’s sold about 850 pieces.

She sells her cards for $5 but

they retail as high as $7.50 at

shops that stock them.

The young entrepreneur eventually

wants a career in the arts

and crafts business.

ESCAPADING: Zoe Elmey

sells her cards to businesses

while on holiday.

“I want to own my own shop

where I make everything by

hand. Drawing and creating

things has always been a part of

me,” Zoe said.

She’s designed a new range of

Christmas cards which are available

at Salt in Sumner.

“Zoe is always designing new

cards, so we hope to have a

new range in the new year,” Ms

Nisbet said.

•To order Zoe’s cards, email

lotsofloveart@gmail.com.

SITE: This reserve on

McCormacks Bay Rd will

have a kindergarten on it.

Kindergarten

appeal unlikely

•From page 1

An estimated 200 vehicles are

expected to move in and out of

McCormacks Bay Rd during the

day, and residents say it’s dangerous

place for a kindergarten.

“While the community centre

was being rebuilt there was

three accidents – one of them

had their door cleaned right off

its hinges,” Mrs Keats’ husband

Graham said.

“It’s really bad from a safety

aspect as kids are going to be

loaded and unloaded during the

peak times for traffic.”

Kidsfirst declined to comment

until the appeal time had lapsed.

Homeowner Suzanne Sullivan

is considering appealing

the decision but residents only

have until Friday, December 9 to

lodge an appeal.

“There’s a possibility we may

do because we’re certainly very

gutted about the decision. This

isn’t the place for a kindergarten,”

she said.

Lyrebird

by Cecelia Ahern

She will change your life forever In the south-west of Ireland,

rugged mountains meet bright blue lakes and thick forests.

Deep in the woods, a young woman lives alone, forever

secluded from the world, her life a well-kept secret. She

possesses an extraordinary talent, the likes of which no-one

has seen before: a gift that will earn her the nickname Lyrebird.

When Solomon stumbles into Laura’s solitary existence, her life

is turned on its head.

Pulled from her peaceful landscape to the cacophony of Dublin, she is

confronted by a world desperate to understand her. But while Solomon knows the

world will embrace Laura, will it free her to spread her wings – or will it trap her in a

gilded cage? Like all wild birds, she needs to fly free…

Lyrebird is a thoughtful, deeply moving love story; a story of the wild heart in us all

and the quiet that lies underneath the world’s noise.

THIS BOOK

Food, family and fresh beginnings. For fans of 800 Words, Offspring, Josephine

Moon and Monica McInerney.

On the outskirts of a small New Zealand seaside town, Lia and her friend Anna work

serious hours running their restored cafe. The busy season is just around the corner,

and there are other things to occupy them. Anna is about to marry Lia’s twin brother,

and Lia’s ex-boyfriend seems not to understand it’s over.

When a gorgeous stranger taps on Lia’s window near midnight and turns out not to

be a serial killer, she feels it’s a promising sign. But the past won’t let them be, and

Lia must decide whether events rule her life or she does.

The Pretty Delicious Cafe will remind you of those special, good things we love

about living. And the food is great.

A warm, witty novel, brimming with the trademark romance, friendship and

eccentricity that Danielle Hawkins’s fans adore.

Fair money goes

to good causes

OUR LADY Star of the Sea

held its annual Mission Day

Fair recently.

Held on the school

grounds, hundreds of residents

came down.

The pupils co-ordinated

the fair and sold secondhand

and toys.

go at sailing. Here’s what

they had to say about

their experience

Last Monday, we went sailing

at Charteris Bay Yacht

Club. It was a beautiful day. As

we drove down, we could see

the water sparkling.

At the club, we met our

instructor Henry, and we

quickly got dressed into our

wet suits and life jackets.

Before we were allowed out

onto the water, Henry taught

barbecue, bouncy castle, fun

games and competitions.

The money raised was donated

to St Joseph’s School

in Samoa, although the

children decided to donate

half the money to St Joseph’s

School in Kaikoura so that

the pupils there could have

some fun.

The fair raised $969.

us about the parts of the optimist

boat. We learned to use

the rudder to turn and how to

use the mainsheet to control

the speed. We also learned

how to avoid the boom, which

makes exactly that sound if it

hits your head!

Once the optimists were

launched, we did follow the

leader. Elijah was set a challenge

because he was so fast.

He had to sail to the end of the

line and then come back.

After lunch, we went back

on the water to play a game

called sponge tag, which was

lots of fun. We also learned

SHIELD FEVER: Pupils at Our Lady Star of the Sea got to hold the

Rivalry in school surf champs

SUMNER SCHOOL’S Ava

Henderson will continue

her battle with North Wai

Boardriders teammate Lily

Robertson at Saturday’s South

Island Primary School Champs

at North Beach.

Henderson is the top seed

in the year 7 and 8 girls’

competition, but will face stiff

competition from Chisnallwood

Intermediate’s Lily Robertson.

Henderson won the recent

Canterbury Primary School

Championships, but Robertson

got one over the Sumner pupil at

the Duke Festival of Surfing in

March.

There’s also strong hopes for

another local competing in the

competition’s largest division.

Jack Tyro, of Sumner, will be

hoping to throw a cat amongst

the pigeons when he takes on

some of the best young surfers

from around the country in

the year 6 and under

competition.

The division includes current

New Zealand year 6 champion

Campbell Heasley from

Broomfield School.

The event, in its 13th year,

will be run by the North Wai

Boardriders Club.

This year the club expects

big numbers at the event, with

TOP SEED: Sumner School pupil Ava Henderson will be the

top seed in the girls’ section of the South Island Primary School

Champs.

the inclusion of a large team

of surfers from the Buller

Boardriders Club.

As well as Westport, there

will be competitors from North

Canterbury, Kaikoura and

Dunedin.

Due to the recent upheaval in

Kaikoura, North Wai has offered

free entry and accommodation

to competitors travelling from

that area.

SPORTS

NZ CHAMP: Campbell Heasley will be the man to beat in

the year 6 and under division. He will face plenty of top

competition, though, including Sumner’s Jack Tyro.

Bay area well represented in Metro win

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

SUMNER AND Heathcote

players contributed to the

Christchurch Metro Cricket

senior representative team’s win

over South Canterbury on the

weekend.

The 50-over game, played at

Timaru’s Aorangi Park, came

down to a last wicket partnership

for Christchurch Metro, which

chased down South Canterbury’s

195 to win the match.

Sumner’s Dan Vann (right)

said the game was played on a

good pitch, and the team did

“quite well” to hold South Canterbury

from scoring more.

“We held them back to 195,

which is quite good I’d say. Then

we went out and batted well

and chased it down in the last

wicket,” he said.

Seven members of the 12-man

Christchurch Metro squad play

for either Heathcote or Sumner.

Heathcote was represented by

Grant Stewart, Matthew House,

Charles Grey and Nick Turner,

while Sumner had Jordan Leech,

Vann and Michael Newton Vesty.

Heathcote’s Turner had the best

bowling figures for Christchurch

Metro with 4/36, while Vann also

pitched in with 1/40.

In Christchurch Metro’s

run chase, Merivale-Papanui’s

Mitchell Dimond (55) and

captain James Carr (47)

combined with the bat to make

headway into South Canterbury’s

total.

But it came down to the

final wicket partnership for

Christchurch Metro to snatch the

victory. Heathcote’s Turner and

Stewart hit the winning runs in

the 47th over.

The representative side will

play two more games in the

new year. They will face Mid

Canterbury and Canterbury

Country.

THE MALTWORKS VILLAS

New villas

offer lifestyle

and financial

benefits

The Maltworks Villas residential

complex being constructed on the former

Maltworks site in Heathcote Valley is

designed for people in the over-55 age

group that enjoy an active lifestyle and

want to live in a place where natural beauty

defines their surroundings.

Located at 66 Port Hills Road, the

Maltworks Villas will not only have views

of the Port Hills, but will also have the

additional benefits of the micro-climate

environment of the valley.

Developed by PLC Group, the complex

will comprise 65 villas in duplex or terraced

housing styles.

There are 11 plans available in different

sizes, with two- or three-bedroom and

one- or two-bathroom units being offered.

The advantage of the larger sizes is that

purchasers will be able to bring more of

their existing belongings to their new

home, rather than having to dispose of

them.

Construction is linear, with doubleglazed

windows and Colorsteel roofing

with solar panels to reduce the cost of

power for residents. Villas will have a

single or double garage, depending on

the size, while the common areas of the

complex will be attractively landscaped and

maintained by a caretaker.

A key advantage for purchasers of

villas at the Maltworks development is

that ownership is a freehold unit title,

rather than a licence to occupy. This will

allow owners to benefit from the growth

in capital value of their unit, rather than

having limited access to participate in

increased value, as is the case with the

licence to occupy model.

PLC Groups has been operating for

15 years and has developed three over

55/60 lifestyle villages based on the

freehold unit title model. The Maltworks

Villas are designed to create a community

environment, where people of similar

interests can enjoy

companionship and

share activities, with

the well-appointed

clubhouse offering

facilities for socialising

and special events.

A store and café are

to be built alongside

the village, while

a wide range of

recreational facilities

in close proximity to

Maltworks Villas offer

plenty of opportunities

for enjoying social and

leisure activities.

Ferrymead, with

its multitude of retail

and commercial

Under offer

businesses, is a short drive away, the

Eastgate shopping centre is approximately

12 minutes’ drive away, and Lyttelton

township and harbour are also within easy

reach through the tunnel.

There is a bus stop located 100 metres

from the entrance to the village, with buses

running to and from the city centre on a

regular basis.

Fourteen of the villas are under offer

with earthworks currently underway

and construction of the first lot of villas

expected to be completed early in the

Experts restore that

“winning smile”

MEETING PEOPLE for the first time,

interacting with others on social occasions,

going for a job interview - in all these

situations your smile is the most important

part of you.

Or perhaps, on a lighter note, you

might be scaring yourself with your ‘selfie’

because your smile is not as attractive as it

should be, due to missing or broken teeth.

Perhaps it’s time for a visit to Denture

South in Barrington, where the experts can

give you that winning smile back.

Clinical dental technician, Andrew

Johnson and associate Janice ling can

provide you with a highly personalised

experience. We have a lot of knowledge

and experience that can help guide you

through the process.

For people who have had dentures for a

while and are finding they frequently need

to buy denture adhesive to keep them in

place, Andrew advises having the dentures

relined so they will fit better. As he points

out, the money spent on denture adhesive

over 12 months would easily cover the cost

of having your dentures refitted.

Denture South has been providing a full

range of denture services for the residents

of Christchurch for over 13 years. These

services include first-time immediate

dentures, full replacement dentures, partial

plates and sports mouth-guards.

Many Denture South clients come

through word-of-mouth referral, an

indication of the level of satisfaction that’s

provided there. Coming into Christmas

we will be open and available for all

adjustments for our existing patients in the

final week, making for a great Christmas.

The friendly Denture South team.

located at 230

Barrington Street,

Denture South has

off-street parking.
