KEY ORGANISATIONS and

residents have met to discuss

the tsunami response

debacle after last month’s

7.8 magnitude earthquake

caused confusion over the

evacuation.

A community meeting

Civil Defence and emergency

services to address

confusion around what to

do after an earthquake and the

evacuation process.

The meeting was initiated

by the Sumner Volunteer Fire

not activated until about

two hours after the November

Hundreds of residents

did not evacuate their

homes until sirens

sounded and the fire

brigade drove the streets

telling people to go to

higher ground.

“Do not wait for sirens

and do not wait for people to

tell you to leave. A strong earthquake

is the only information

you need to get gone,” Sumner

Volunteer Fire Brigade deputy

chief fire officer Darren

Wright said.

A national review has

been promised which will

look into problems like the

communication failure

that meant national Civil

Defence was telling people

along the coast to evacuate

while local Civil Defence

was not.

It will also look into why the

DON’T WAIT for the tsunami

sirens if there’s a decent quake.

Get in your vehicles and head

as fast as you can up the nearest

hill – and that fairly commonsense

action could save you and your

family’s life.

A meeting this week (see page 1)

organised by the Sumner Volunteer

Fire Brigade in the aftermath

of the tsunami siren debacle when

the Kaikoura quake struck has put

some timely structure into a fairly

fragmented plan.

Kudos to the Sumner fire team

for organising the meeting and

pulling all of the interested parties

together.

In the event of a big quake in

South America, we’ll be fine, as

there is plenty of time to determine

if a tsunami is coming.

If a big quake hits off our shore

we will have 10min at the most

to get to higher ground. – Barry

Tension at Magazine Bay

BAY HARBOUR

In Brief

PAGE 3

• By Annabelle Dick

A JUMPING platform has been

proposed for Magazine Bay to avoid

conflict between swimmers and yacht

owners.

Lyttelton residents Arthur Collins

and son Tom Collins made a deputation

at the Banks Peninsula Community

Board about conflict between

teenagers using the yacht club’s wharf.

Both Dr Collins and his son said

there had been stand-offs between

the two parties as teenagers preferred

using the longer private wharf instead

of the short public wharf.

Mr Collins suggested creating a

higher jumping platform to stop

swimmers using the private wharf.

“Dad and I were thinking if we

pushed the barbed wire gate four

metres seaward then we could open

up that high platform to the public

and put in a ladder in that space, so

swimmers could jump off and climb

back up without getting in the boaties

way,” he said.

There are two wharfs at the bay; one

is open to the public and the other is a

private wharf administered by Naval

Point Yacht Club.

There is a wire fence blocking the

taller private wharf but swimmers

could still access it via a ladder at the

end of the wharf near moorings.

The community board made a

resolution on Monday to ask the city

council to undertake a report and see

if it was possible to relocate the fence.

Mr Collins said he’d heard yelling

and cussing between teenagers and

boat owners when they used the

private wharf.

The pair also said there had been

thefts from boats.

Dr Collins suggested creating a

jumping platform like Wellington

Harbour’s Taranaki St Wharf jump

platform.

He said it could stop people from

accessing the private wharf and would

ease the problem between mooring

owners and swimmers.

“It would be nice to come up with

a solution here and diffuse all the

tension that’s been building every

summer,” he said.

Senior Sergeant Stephen McDaniel

said Lyttelton police were aware of the

concerns people have around swimmers

using the jetties at Magazine

Bay.

Naval Point Yacht Club commodore

Dave Anderson said he was unaware

of the issue but was willing to talk to

concerned residents about addressing

the issue.

The city council feasibility report is

due back in January.

a jumping platform should be

REVAMP FOR PARK

Scarborough Park will be

revamped as the city council

asks residents for ideas on

what to do with the recreation

area. The playground at the

park, on Heberden Ave, has

reached the end of its lifespan.

It was created in the 1960s. The

city council wants residents

views on the existing park and

possible ideas for the draft

landscape plan. It has $150,000

available in the next financial

year to create a development

plan for Scarborough Park and

construct a new playground.

Any further works, once the

new playground is built, will

depend on future funding

availability through the city

council’s Long Term Plan and

may be staged over future years.

Submissions close tomorrow at

5pm.

ONE LANE FOR EVANS PASS

Evans Pass Rd has been

reduced to one lane due to

retaining wall repairs. The

route is being controlled by

traffic lights and road users

should expect to be stopped

for lights when going either up

or downhill. Contractors are

expected to have finished the

repairs by December 31.

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | DECEMBER 2016

The year ahead

A message from outgoing EQC chief executive

Ian Simpson

The Kaikoura Earthquake has been an unwelcome

reminder of the sheer power and unpredictability

of geological forces and of New Zealand’s

vulnerability to these.

The earthquake has also highlighted yet again

the resilience of New Zealanders in the face of

natural disaster.

At EQC, it’s also reminded us that every natural

disaster affects communities in different ways. So

while we have learned a number of lessons from

Canterbury 2010-2011, our response to the

Kaikoura Earthquakes will be different.

One of the key things we learned from

Canterbury is that we should have put more

time early on into building relationships with

customers, community groups, local

Courtesy of Tonkin + Taylor

Don’t wait to hear from

EQC – lodge your claim

Most people seen by EQC in the first

weeks since the Kaikoura

Earthquake of 14 November have

wanted help lodging their claims

and advice on how to get emergency

repairs underway to get them back

into their homes.

EQC Customer and Claims General

Manager Trish Keith says that having

organised three teams on rotation into

the most impacted areas of Ward, Waiau

and Kaikoura to help lodge claims,

provide information and answer

EQC-related questions, EQC is being

kept up to date on customer needs.

“One of the lessons out of Canterbury

was that people wanted information

and the opportunity to talk to someone

about their issues as soon as they could

after an event, so we have ensured that

our response to Kaikoura includes

personal contact,” Mrs Keith says.

“The teams have been dealing with

hundreds of customers one-on-one.

Many people have been asking EQC

when someone from EQC will visit

them, so they will know what to do

next. My advice is that they go ahead

and lodge the claim first. Don’t wait for

anyone to visit.

“Go ahead and lodge your claim to

ensure you are in the system, and any

earthquake damage found later can be

added. If you fail to lodge a claim

before 14 February 2017, we won’t be

able to help you so best to lodge the

government, and government agencies

and insurers.

We are heeding that lesson as we plan our

response to Kaikoura. We’ve had staff on the

ground in Kaikoura, Ward and Waiau to help

customers lodge their claims and answer EQC

related questions. The information our people

are picking up from those areas is being fed back

into our planning.

The work we are doing now will mean that in

2017 we will be putting in place the team we

need to deliver a response tailored to the needs

of customers impacted by the Kaikoura

Earthquake. This team will be part of the new

structure we have developed to also carry on the

remaining work in Canterbury in 2017.

While we are working very hard on responding to

Kaikoura, we also know we have to keep focussed

on resolving the final Canterbury claims.

I’m stepping down as EQC’s chief executive at

the end of this year. I want to thank people of

claim,” Mrs Keith says.

The next steps about claim assessment

and settlement are still the subject of

ongoing negotiations with private

insurers. EQC is confident it will have

news on this soon.

EQC has been prioritising the

vulnerable and the most damaged

homes for visits, as needed.

All EQC teams are working out of

Recovery Assistance Centres set up by

Canterbury Civil Defence Emergency

Management in Ward, Waiau and

Kaikoura so Government agencies and

non-government agencies could deliver

consistently across areas of need.

If you have any questions about

your existing claim or want to lodge

a new claim:

• Visit www.eqc.govt.nz/claims

• Email info@eqc.govt.nz

• Phone 0800 DAMAGE (326 243)

The EQC call centre is open 7am to

9pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to

6pm on Saturdays.

To prepare for making a claim,

remember to have on hand:

• Information about what damage

occurred

• Photographs showing the damage

and any urgent work that was done

• Your insurance policy number and

name of your insurance company.

Courtesy of NZ Fire Service

Canterbury for the support we have received,

and at times for your patience. I acknowledge we

didn’t always get everything right but we have

learned from that. I also want to acknowledge the

EQC staff who worked very hard to support the

Canterbury recovery.

Looking ahead, it’s clear 2017 will be another

year of challenges. I’m confident that EQC will

rise to meet those challenges.

2017 changes

From later this month, EQC will be the main point of

contact for all customer enquiries relating to Canterbury

Home Repair Programme (CHRP) repairs.

Until now, customers have dealt with EQC and/or Fletcher EQR

– depending on what stage their repairs have been at. But, from

16 December, EQC’s 0800 number (0800 326 243) will be the

main number for all customers – including those whose

properties are in the current sub-floor review, who will be

transferred to the Fletcher EQR staff focussing on that work.

No delays are intended or anticipated, but personnel changes

due to the completion of about 68,400 first-time CHRP repairs

may mean some customers will have a different contact person

at EQC or EQR in 2017.

EQC’s General Manager Customer and Claims Trish Keith says

these customers will be advised of any changes and provided

with new contact details.

“We don’t want customers who currently have a contact

person at EQC or EQR calling us and only then finding out that

someone else is looking after their claim.”

She says any changes will be limited to EQC and EQR

personnel, and repair work will be carried out by contractors

that have already worked for the home repair programme and

are familiar with EQC’s systems and quality expectations.

Most CHRP contractors will finish work for the year on

23 December and resume work from 9 January.

EQC’s Contact Centre hours will be:

• Friday 23 December: 7am-5pm

• Saturday 24 December – Tuesday 27 December: CLOSED

• Wednesday 28 December – Friday 30 December: 8am-5pm

• Saturday 31 December – Tuesday 3 January: CLOSED

• Normal hours will resume on Wednesday 4 January

(7am-9pm Monday-Friday; 8am-6pm Saturday)

Positive

response to

February 2016

settlement

process

90 percent of claims from the February 2016

earthquakes have been settled.

EQC’s February 2016 Event Response Manager,

Jayne Lapin, says of the 13,879 claims received for the

14 and 29 February earthquakes and subsequent

aftershocks, EQC has resolved 12,440 (90 percent)

by cash settlement worth a total value of $46,039,854

“Customers have appreciated the approach we have

developed and implemented in response to the

February earthquakes.”

The new approach uses both on-site and phonebased

assessments, and allows customers to influence

the pace of settlement by giving them the opportunity

to provide earthquake damage data and

photographic evidence.

Thanks to a robust period of planning in advance and

with customers providing information up front, claims

have taken an average of three weeks to reach

settlement from assessment.

Customers who have been through the process have

been surveyed and nearly 90 percent of those who have

taken part have been positive about their experience.

Ms Lapin says EQC had hoped to resolve all February

2016 claims by the end of the year but it has suited

some customers to defer their assessment to 2017,

meaning a small number remain open and will be

closed early next year.

Land settlements

update

Almost all land claims will be resolved by the end

of the year but there will be some customers who

will get their settlement in 2017.

At the end of December 2016, out of a total of

approximately 73,000 green zone properties we

expect to have resolved 97% of them. This means we

have either made payments to customers or advised

them that they don’t qualify for the types of land

damage known as Increased Flooding Vulnerability

(IFV) and/or Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV).

“We’ve been working to get an answer to all land

customers waiting to hear from us this year. While we

have worked hard to ensure that customers have

received their land settlement, we are conscious that

some are still waiting”, says EQC’s Head of Customer

and Claims Trish Keith.

“These are the last of the most complex claims that

we need to settle and we will do our best to continue

to deliver robust settlements which can give

homeowners confidence that all properties have been

assessed fairly and consistently”, says Mrs Keith.

“Looking back on the year, we would also like the

opportunity to thank all land customers, community

groups and many other stakeholders, who are also

supporting our customers, for their patience and

understanding as well as taking the time to come to

our community meetings on land settlements or

hosting us and providing us with their feedback”,

concludes Mrs Keith.

The EQC website remains a good source of

information for land customers who want to find out

more about IFV and ILV land damage, which are a

world-first. Please visit www.eqc.govt.nz/IFV or www.

eqc.govt.nz/ILV.

Bid to boost

Civil Defence

network

CIVIL DEFENCE will be

boosted in Little River and

Birdlings Flat after residents

living near the sea had nowhere

to evacuate to after the 7.8

magnitude earthquake on

November 14.

Because Birdlings Flat does

not have any community facilities,

residents had nowhere to

stay while they were evacuated

from their homes when a

tsunami warning was in place

following the earthquake.

Nearby Little River was out of

the tsunami area, so it did not

have any facilities open.

The city council is looking at

building Civil Defence volunteers

in those areas.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman Christine

Wilson is pleased to see action

being taken.

“Around in the smaller bays a

lot of residents were evacuated

so there needs to be a plan in

place and somewhere for them

to go,” Ms Wilson said.

“In Lyttelton, we work with

Civil Defence so they need that

scenario across the peninsula as

well so there needs to be further

clarity.”

Outdoor eating goes

UPGRADE

• By Annabelle Dick

AN AKAROA restaurant

owner is fighting for the right to

use Rue Lavaud’s footpath for

outdoor seating.

The Little Bistro owner Richard

Uttley was told to remove

the furniture outside his restaurant

last Wednesday by the city

council due to health and safety

reasons.

He’s annoyed as the restaurant

has used the footpath for

outdoor seating for the near

25 years The Little Bistro has

existed.

“It’s highly disappointing that

our business and our beautiful

village is restricted by the

stupidity of pencil pushers,” Mr

Uttley said.

While renewing the liquor

licence for The Little Bistro

on Rue Lavaud, city council

staff told Mr Uttley he needed

a licence agreement to use the

foothpath as an outdoor dining

area.

“We applied for a licence and it

came back is a no so we’ve had to

remove them as of immediately,”

Mr Uttley said.

All public areas that are in

private use for outdoor dining

need a licence agreement.

For a business to gain a

PULLED: The Little Bistro can no longer offer outside

dinning at their restaurant . ​

licence, there needs to be at least

3m of footpath available with 2m

available for pedestrians. In areas

of low pedestrian frequency

it can be discretionary.

There’s just under 2m of foothpath

available outside The Little

Bistro.

“It’s detrimental from a financial

point of view, especially

when we’ve only got three to

four months of good trading

a year – those tables are pretty

vital,” Mr Uttley said.

Mr Uttley says the fight isn’t

over yet and he’s determined to

get seating back outside for the

summer months.

“We will either try get the

lease to use the outside area then

apply for a liquor licence back,

or hopefully we could come to

some sort of sensible solution

other than just a flat no,” Mr

Uttley said.

FOR CHURCH

The city council has upgraded

Lyttelton’s St Saviour’s at Holy

Trinity Church heritage status.

The church has been given

Conservation Covenant Consent

approval for Heritage New

Zealand to upgrade it from a

category 2 building to a category

1 building. That means the

church will be upgraded from an

historic place with historical or

cultural significance or value to

being of special or outstanding

significance.

When to evacuate was also discussed

and organisations pressed

residents to take initiative and

leave their home after a long or

strong earthquake.

“We really want to get that

message across that if the ground

shakes for longer than one minute,

or if it’s so violent you find it

hard to stand up then you need to

News

Wheatsheaf Hotel flooded

Author Jane Robertson talks

about her magnificent book

Head of the Harbour, the history

of local jetties and natural

disasters she discovered while

researching for the book

Over the five years in which

I’ve been working on Head

of the Harbour: A History of

Governors Bay, Ohinetahi,

Allandale and Teddington,

I’ve interviewed local residents

and ex-residents, scoured old

newspapers and institutional

archives and been given

access to a fascinating array

of letters, diaries, photos and

other material from private

collections. The following

account, which draws on

material from the book, focuses

on a few of the stories relating

to the jetties at the head of the

harbour.

Everyone knows the iconic

‘long jetty’ at Governors Bay.

First built as a short jetty in 1874,

it was extended in 1915 and

again in 1927 because increasing

upper-harbour silting meant that

the jetty was able to be used by

steamers bringing day-trippers

from Lyttelton only at high tide.

At the time of the 1915 extension,

Eddie Radcliffe was going

to school in Governors Bay.

After class the children would

rush down the jetty, where there

was a trolley on railway lines

that transported materials to

the construction end. The workmen

would allow the children

to get into the trolley and push

themselves up and down. No

health and safety to contend

with then! The long jetty is soon

to be rebuilt, as a local initiative,

following earthquake damage.

However the stories of other

jetties are less well known.

For example, on August 15,

1868, an earthquake of about

magnitude 9, offshore from the

Peru–Chile border, generated the

largest recorded distant tsunami

to strike New Zealand. Around

4.00am a wall of water surged

up Lyttelton harbour. At the

Head of the Bay (Teddington), a

substantial 300-foot jetty, built

only six years before to transport

produce, particularly for the

Manson and Gebbie families,

DAMAGED: The ‘long jetty’ in Governors Bay, damaged and off-limits since the 2011

earthquakes, will be rebuilt under the direction of the Governors Bay Jetty Restoration Trust.

was completely washed away,

along with the boats moored at

the jetty.

The most powerful earthquake

of the twentieth century, off the

coast of Chile on May 22 1960,

measured 9.5 on the Richter

scale. In the late evening and

early morning of the May 23

and 24, the first of many tsunami

waves began to reach New

Zealand’s east coast. In Teddington,

about midnight, David

Gebbie heard a rumble like an

approaching earthquake, went

outside and found water lapping

around his house. Daybreak revealed

the extent of the damage.

Waves had travelled as far inland

as St Peter’s Church. The ground

floor of the Wheatsheaf Hotel

was covered in three feet of water

and empty beer barrels had

floated away from the outhouse.

The road from the bottom of the

Allandale hill to the Wheatsheaf

was a quagmire with receding

water still running across it in

places and dead and exhausted

sheep lying along its length.

One farmer lost about 200 sheep

from paddocks on both sides of

the road - the force of the tidal

wave carried the animals out of

their paddocks and into a nearby

property. Fences were destroyed

and ditches blocked. Flounder,

conger eels and red cod lay in

the paddocks. Dogs chained to

their kennels were drowned. The

Press reported the Wheatsheaf

proprietor Mary Packer managed

to keep up a supply of beer

which was welcomed by locals as

they strove to clean up the mess,

though their efforts tended to be

thwarted by fresh tidal surges

coming through.

BAY HARBOUR

PAGE 7

after powerful earthquake

At Sandy Bay, Graeme Small

saw the harbour empty out:

“I was about 11 or 12 … I

looked out – hmmm, it’s a low

tide, there’s no water. And it

was right out as far as the end

of Quail Island. Quail Island

was high and dry… I rushed

inside and said, ‘Oh, there’s no

water.’ ‘What d’you mean?’ I

said, ‘There’s no water in the

harbour, it’s all gone.’ They said,

‘Rubbish.’ They came out and,

‘Oh, where’s it gone?’… Woooof,

back up it came. I took the day off

school – I bunked it. My parents

didn’t know until late in the day.

I took a sugar bag … down to

Māori Gardens. There were fish

stranded on the beach. I took the

sugar bag and got flounders and

sole…”

Seeking a deeper water access

to Governors Bay, where steam

craft such as the John Anderson

could berth, the Lyttelton Harbour

Board built another wharf,

in March 1883, at Percevals Point

(now the point off Sandy Bay).

This jetty was known variously as

Small’s jetty, Percevals Point jetty

and Sandy Bay jetty. Today only

the piles remain. The narrow

track that now runs from Sandy

Bay round to the remaining jetty

piles was once a busy official

road providing access to the bay

for cargo and visitors. However

HISTORIC: Visitors enjoying the Governors Bay foreshore. The

Sandy Bay jetty can be seen in the distance.

PHOTO: CORAL ATKINSON

the jetty was dismantled in 1938

following a tragic incident.

Two young Christchurch boys

were fishing from the jetty. One

lad, walking backwards while

unwinding his lines, fell in. Local

resident Angus Small pulled him

out of the water but the boy died.

His family attempted to sue the

Lyttelton Harbour Board because

the jetty had been constructed

without railings at the end so that

cargo could be loaded.

Accidents of a different sort

could occur on the harbour.

Gladys Robertson recalled a

frightening childhood experience

when she and her sisters were

returning from Lyttelton in January

1907:

“Margaret wanted to come

home on Purau but I loved John

Anderson and insisted on going

on her. I think the Captains must

have had an argument on who’s

boat could go the fastest. Well

we got out the moles, with Purau

hot on our stern. John took a

straight line for the short wharf

and we expected Purau to go to

the long wharf, but she got up a

great speed and took off for Quail

Island. We sat on the seat and

watched and when she swung

round and faced us her bow was

right out of the water with speed,

FLOODED: The effects of the May 1960 tsunami can be seen

here at Teddington. The old Blacksmith’s shop, adjacent to the

Wheatsheaf Hotel and now restored and operating as a smithy,

can be seen on the right.

she came straight at us, but poor

kids we thought she would turn

off, but a deck hand rushed along

& pitched us along to the cabin &

told us to go in the cabin quickly

and stay there. With that there

was a splintering crash & poor

old John lay on her side with

Purau half over us. She slid back

into the sea & backed off & set

off happily for her destination.

Our engines were not damaged &

we crawled in to the short wharf

w[h]ere we were hurried off.”

The need for sea transport

of the harbour improved. Of the

approximately seven jetties that

were once in use between Teddington

and Sandy Bay, only the

long jetty remains, earthquake

damaged and marooned at midlow

tide. The rebuilding of this

jetty will restore a much-loved

piece of maritime history to the

local community and the citizens

of Christchurch.

Controversial

bus stop

approved

A CONTROVERSIAL bus stop

outside Wakefield Ave businesses

will be installed in spite of pleas

from business owners.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

approved to move the existing

southbound bus stop on the

bend of Marriner St and

Wakefield Ave to 1, 5, 7 Wakefield

Ave.

It was due to sit outside Sumner

Pharmacy as part of the Sumner

Village Centre Master Plan but

businesses owners contested it as

it would effect parking and create

more noise.

The city council generated a

report in response and suggested

another six options but listed

relocation 50m north as the

preferred option.

That will see the bus stop

moved in front of other

businesses – Beachside

Convenience, Stoked Surf Shop,

IndiMex Restaurant and Retreat

Apartments.

The bus stop installation will

see the removal of three on-street

car parks outside the stores.

Construction is proposed to

start in March and will take

about five months.

Fence draws criticism

• By Annabelle Dick

REDCLIFFS residents are

angered over ‘prison-type’

fencing that’s been installed

along Moa Bone Point Cave.

The city council installed a 2m

safety fences along the cliff side

of Main Rd to keep people out of

the dangerous rockfall area last

month.

Redcliffs Residents Association

says the spear posts make it

look aggressive and obtrusive.

“It’s unnecessary. This strikes

us as complete overkill and they

had the choice to do something

a little less aggressive,” secretary

Pat McIntosh said.

Fencing has been installed at

Moa Bone Point, and will also

be installed at Shag Rock Reserve

and Wakefield Ave, from

Nayland to Paisley Sts as part of

the Sumner Lyttelton Corridor

project.

Residents have fought the

fence installation since the

project’s designs were released

as they felt a 2m fence was too

imposing.

The residents association

instead fought for a 1.2m poolstyle

fence with hazard signs

instead of the proposed fence.

After public consultation

in June, the city council went

ahead with installing the 2m

pool-style design in spite of

submissions against it.

City council general manager

city services David Adamson

said the consultation was only

on the style of fencing, and the

decision on the spear top was

made after consultation.

But Dr McIntosh says the city

council didn’t indicate spears

would be a part of the design.

“The consultation process

looks like sham because they’ve

put up a different style fencing

from what they pictured in the

consultation,” Dr McIntosh said.

Mr Adamson said the aluminium

spear top pool-style fencing

was chosen as the rod top poolstyle

fencing wasn’t available

from a local manufacturer.

“Local manufacture is important

as we may need to replace

panels in the future due to damage

and we needed to be able to

quickly source matching panels

to ensure the area remains safe

with people not able to easily

access the hazardous areas,” he

said.

He added it wouldn’t be feasible

to remove it due to the cost.

The residents association has

written to the Linwood-Central-

CORDONED

OFF: A 2m

fence is being

installed along

the Sumner

Lyttelton

Corridor to keep

people out of

the rockfall

area. It has

been called

an eyesore by

residents.

DONE AND DUSTED: Shipping containers have been removed

at Peacocks Gallop on Main Rd. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Main Rd now free

from containers

SHIPPING CONTAINERS that

have lined the route to Sumner

for the past five years are finally

gone.

The last container of about 160

at Peacocks Gallop was removed

on Monday.

Shipping containers were

placed at Peacocks Gallop and

several other sites after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake

to protect road users from slope

instability hazards from the cliff

face.

The city council said remediation

works have been completed

to a stage where the containers

are no longer needed.

The road was protected by

containers until high-grade mesh

wire could be installed to mitigate

rockfall risk.

The mesh acts as a curtain

draping over the cliff and in the

event of rockfall, it will fall underneath

into a catch pit instead

of towards the road.

The remediation works were

done by Land Information New

Zealand as part of the Sumner

Lyttelton Corridor re-opening

programme.

A 2m fence will also be

installed next year at Peacocks

Gallop to keep people out of the

hazardous rockfall area.

SUMMIT: Diamond Harbour’s Korimako and Kotuku classes reached the summit after a four

hour trek uphill. ​

Hot, hilly trek for pupils

DIAMOND Harbour School’s

year 5 Korimako class joined

the Kotuku class for a trek up

Mt Herbert.

It began as a hot morning

and the pupils faced a long day;

beginning at 8.30am and not

returning until 4.30pm.

It was a long and steep walk

that took four hours to ascend

to the summit and 3.5 hours to

descend.

The climb started at Orton

Bradley Park and they took

a new track created by Pete

Ozich.

On the way down, some students

chose to take the

gorse route down, however,

this was proven not to be a

shortcut.

To end the journey pupils

encountered ongaonga and

muddy tracks with no dry way

around – and most of them had

a cold dip in the stream to wash

the mud off.

‘Tis the Season

Market Comment with Craig Prier

In a flash Christmas is almost upon us. That time of

year when everything must be done with a cut-off

date in mind before businesses close down and

families go on well-deserved holidays.

It’s been a year with all the usual twists and turns

and the real estate market has been no exception.

Changes in LVR’s, a further reduction in the OCR, a

softening of the rental market have all played their part in

shaping the market to what we have today. Throw in a serious earthquake and

some initial concerns around insurance cover then it’s not hard to realise we

live and work in an ever-changing environment.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to the families of North Canterbury who have

been so devastatingly affected by the events of the November 14 earthquake.

It’s a tough time for so many people especially leading up to Christmas.

Ray White Ferrymead would like to thank you for your business this year, and

wish you and your families happy holidays and safe travels if you are getting

away over the festive season. We look forward to the challenges that 2017

will bring, and hope wherever you are it’s with great friends and family. Merry

Christmas!

a dedicated surf lifesaver for the past seven

years, he is now a member of the Sumner

Surf Lifesaving Club and looks forward

to spending time in and around the

community over the coming months.

Ferrymead Accounting goes from

strength to strength

Due to continued growth in the area and support from local

businesses and individuals, Ferrymead Accounting moved to larger

premises earlier in the year to 11F Settlers Crescent in Ferrymead.

In addition, owner and director Chris McMullon has hired a further

also sponsors a fledgling new not-forprofit

community initiative, Time Banks

Aotearoa New Zealand, currently held

under the banner of Project Lyttelton

(for more information on this, see www.

On a day-to-day basis, the team at

Ferrymead Accounting are seriously

ASSET: Deputy mayor Andrew Turner speaks at the

hand-over of the new fire tanker. ​

Firefighters receive

new tanker

A NEW fire tanker that can

handle Banks Peninsula’s roads

has been given to the Governors

Bay Rural Fire Force.

The tanker was commissioned

by the city council’s Rural Fire

Authority and has been purpose-built

to suit the Port Hills

and Banks Peninsula terrain.

The tanker replaces an old

appliance that was used in

Governors Bay for almost 16

years and was handed over by

deputy mayor Andrew Turner

last Sunday.

City council principal rural

fire officer Darrin Woods said

the new tanker would be used

for emergencies not only in

Governors Bay but throughout

the wider Lyttelton Harbour

Basin and Banks Peninsula

areas.

“As we head into the summer

months it is a great to know the

that Governors Bay Voluntary

Rural Fire Force has a fit-forpurpose

tanker in their arsenal

of fire-fighting equipment,” Mr

Woods said.

KIND GESTURE: Countdown Eastgate customer service

manager Jenny Small and Salvation Army’s Major Paul

Herring have teamed up to make Christmas easier for

struggling families. They have joined forces to help

Christchurch families by providing vital food assistance as

part of the Christmas Food Rescue Appeal. The supermarket

is urging shoppers to help feed local families in need

by making a food donation in-store in specially marked

Christmas food rescue trolleys, a cash donation at the

checkout or an online donation at The Foodbank Project.

Countdown Eastgate also donated $500 worth of groceries.

Gifts wanted

for needy

families

AT A time of year when the gift

of giving is in the spotlight, the

team at Ray White Ferrymead

are doing their bit to help

out families who are in a less

fortunate situation than others.

It’s the second year they are

taking part in the community

charity initiative ‘A Little Ray

of Giving’ and they’re aiming

to making this year bigger than

last!

“We’re partnering again this

year with Christchurch City

Mission to distribute gifts,” said

Ray White Ferrymead principal

Craig Prier.

“With the outstanding support

from the beach, hill and harbour

suburbs last year our office collected

the most gifts of any Ray

White office in New Zealand!

This year we’re aiming to keep

that top spot and are once more

calling on the local community

to embrace the giving season

and dig deep for those who need

it most.”

To help spread the Christmas

cheer, it’s as simple as taking

something suitable for a child or

teenager into the Ray White Ferrymead

office until December

22, and stashing it under the

Christmas tree.

Library back in business

Redcliffs

Volunteer

Library subcommittee

member Jan

McLauchlan

talks about

the opening

of the new facility after

the original library was

damaged in the 2011

earthquake

The new Redcliffs Library

building was opened by the

Mayor of Christchurch Lianne

Dalziel on December 2 and the

first customers were welcomed in

last week.

Library staff have been

delighted to see many familiar

faces coming in to look through

the distinctive new building that

they’ve watched take shape over

the last few months.

The opening was the culmination

of 5½ years of perseverance

by a small but determined group

of volunteers, led initially by Jan

McLauchlan then for the last two

years by Tuula Rapley, and including

at various times Suzanne

Craig, Nicola Holdaway, Eddie

Hayes, Rose Phillips, Bronwyn

Goldschmidt and Pauline Peterson,

always with the support of

local MP Ruth Dyson, the rest

of the library committee and a

team of over 30 librarians.

At first the library planned

to relocate a house and develop

it but the involvement of the

city council (thanks to Cr Yani

Johanson who has supported our

project from day one – without

him the project would not have

happened) meant a purpose-built

facility could be constructed.

The building, owned by the

city council but an autonomous

volunteer facility, was designed

by Greg Young and built by City

Care Ltd whose attention to detail

and pride in their work was

outstanding.

The library has a great stock of

books including new releases each

month and there is a special focus

on children’s and young adults’

reading. There are comfortable

chairs and beanbags where customers

can relax and read.

We welcome new customers to

become members of the library

– there is just a small charge

for adults’ books which may be

borrowed for three weeks or for

DVDs for one week. The librarians

are all volunteers and are

happy to recommend books for

you.

Everyone involved is excited to

have the library back in the heart

of the community and we look

forward to many more people

sharing this stunning new facility

with us.

$500 donation from Lions

THE FERRYMEAD Lions

Club has contributed towards

the building of the new

Redcliffs Library.

Club members presented a

$500 cheque to library staff at

a ceremony last month.

Redcliffs Library subcommittee

members Jan

McLauchlan and Tuula Rapley

accepted the cheque and also

spoke about the rebuild.

“The team have worked

extremely hard,” Lions club

member Neville Barrie said.

Redcliffs Library was officially

opened on December

2 by city councillors Yani

Johanson and Sara Templeton,

Port Hills Labour MP Ruth

Dyson, library patron David

Cox, library sub-committee

members Jan McLauchlan

and Tuula Rapley and Mayor

Lianne Dalziel.

Mr Barrie is also inviting

community-minded people

to join the Ferrymead Lions

Club by phoning him on 384

4558.

THANKFUL: Ferrymead Lions

Club member Russ Fergus gifted

a $500 cheque to Redcliffs

Volunteer Library sub-committee

members Jan McLauchlan (left)

and Tuula Rapley.

CELEBRATION: The opening of the Redcliffs Library.

​Plenty to celebrate

Port Hills

Labour MP

Ruth Dyson

talks about

projects

wrapping

up in the

community

There have been so many

celebrations within our communities

over the last couple of

weeks. I think it will send us into

Christmas in exactly the right,

positive frame of mind – well I

certainly hope so!

Recent events have included

the opening of the beautiful

Beachville seawall. Fantastic

crowd of people and local

students with both stalls selling

their own goods and busking!

The local construction team,

Seipp Construction won not just

one but two awards for this work

– best in their category as well

as best overall in the Canterbury

Contractor of the Year award.

Well done!

And nearby Redcliffs Park

hosted home all the runners and

walkers in the Summer starter –

great to see so many people just

having a good time – and raising

money for excellent causes as

well!

The proposal for the park to be

the site of Redcliffs School came

as a shock to nearby residents

who are very supportive of the

school returning to Redcliffs but

did not expect the park to be the

site.

I have asked the Ministry of

Education and the council to

“join up” rather than run two

separate processes, because

people need all the information

so that they can contribute to the

process in the best way possible.

If they get just slices of information

at a time, it is much harder

to make that contribution.

My suggestion has been accepted

and I look forward to

a comprehensive community

briefing about the entire process

and options in the near future.

And of course we have had

the opening of both Redcliffs

Library and Heathcote community

centre and library, both

significant assets and a real tribute

to the input and tenacity of

local people working alongside

the council. And in Lyttelton, a

lovely celebration of the Sumner

Rd retaining wall – yes it has

been a long time but it was a really

big job!

It is the silver lining from the

quakes and assets we can be

proud of going into the future.

THE KEPLER Challenge is

one of New Zealand’s draw

card events and typically sells

out within minutes of online

entries opening.

The strength and talent of

the Sumner Running Club

was demonstrated by the

number of club runners who

competed in both events and

the high-ranking places that

they achieved.

In the 60km Kepler Challenge

event, Vajin Armstrong,

who was competing in the

event for the fifth time, was

the first of the Sumner Running

Club members to cross

the line, taking out second

place overall in a blistering

time of 5h 1m. Next across

the line in 13 th place overall

and first in the 40+ age group

was David Fitch, who was

competing in his first Kepler

Challenge and ultra-distance

race in a time of 5h 49m.

Hot on his heels was Simon

Wooding, who put in a very

solid run crossing the line in

17 th place overall in a time of

5h 57m. David Slater crossed

the line in 28 th place overall in

a respectable time of 6h 20m.

Slater declared not long after

finishing the event that he already

had his eye set on a subsix

hour goal for next year.

John Fitch, who made his

return to the Kepler after an

absence of 10 years, completed

the event in 6h 41m taking

out first place in the 50+ age

group. The two Fitch brothers

took out first place in the 40+

and 50+ age groups.

Lisa Brignull was the only

female Sumner Running Club

member in the 60km race.

Brignull put in an outstanding

performance, completing the

distance in 6h 45m, which

placed her seventh women

overall and second in the 40+

age group. Brignull’s run was

made all the more remarkable

given she had three days

notice before the race that she

had won a place to run in the

event.

Across in the 27km Luxmore

Grunt, there was a tough

battle being fought for the top

three places. Last year’s winner

and Sumner Club member,

Tane Cambridge, put in

a very strong performance to

cross the line in fourth place

this year sneaking just under

the two hour mark in 1h 59m.

Nathan Jones and Katherine

Fitch also completed the

Luxmore Grunt, having both

changed to this shorter event

as a result of injury. Nathan

was 45 th overall and Katherine

63 rd overall.

The strong Sumner Running

Club presence in this

highly-competitive and sought

history of solid performances

by club members, both past

and present, at the Kepler

It is with pleasure that am able to report to our

community that Linwood College has had a

most positive year.

It has been a year of significant busyness

reflecting the growth and positive nature

of the wider environment: significantly

increased academic achievement, community

consultation for our redevelopment and

whole-school rebuild, our third year of

providing education at Year 7-13, curriculum

and teaching changes for a connected and

pathwayed curriculum, digital learning

and the daily bedrock practices of positive,

learning-focused relationships. At Linwood

College the individual matters.

Education is a vast field and terms

like ‘modern’ and ‘innovative learning

Six Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards

This year has been an extremely successful

year at Linwood College for many of senior

students who have completed their Duke

represents a culmination of many years of

effort, both physically and mentally.

environments’ and ‘21st Century learning’ are

being regularly used in the media. Linwood

is clear-eyed about the forms of education

that work for our students. We are focusing

on ‘flexible learning environments’ so that

learning can be individualised and students

see pathways for themselves that engage and

inspire. It is not about ‘traditional’ or ‘modern’,

but personalisation so the systems adapt to

the learner, not the other way round.

Common sense and formal research are

united and very clear on the attitudes,

skills and knowledge that lead secondary

school students on to a successful postschool

pathway, both in tertiary study and in

employment, and it is the daily focus on these

attributes, principally through our SEaRCH

values – Service, Excellence, Respect,

Curiosity and Honesty – that is at the heart of

our school.

Nga mihi nui and best wishes for the festive

season and summer holiday.

Richard Edmundson - Principal

with Linwood College receiving more

awards in 2016 than any other high school.

Present at the ceremony, held

in October were the following

students: Fayreen and Mayreen Fualau,

Our People

Tasman Gillies

Maori environmentalist follows

Tasman Gillies, 27 of Ngāi Tahu (Ngāti Wheke), is a third

generation tāngata tiaki and guardian of Lyttelton Harbour.

Annabelle Dick talked to him about his work and how he

almost followed a completely different career path

You work for Ngāi Tahu, can

you tell me about what you do?

I’m an environmental advisor

– mahinga kai monitoring and

enhancement for Ngāi Tahu.

You’re also tāngata tiaki –

what does that mean and what

do you do in that role?

Tāngata tiaki are guardians

responsible for managing fisheries

resources. In regards to

my role as tāngata tiaki, it’s an

ongoing thing. It’s the legislative

side so it’s a ministerial appointment.

Effectively we manage

the mātaitai (an identified

traditional fishing ground with

special status) and issue customary

fishing permits for the ngāti

wheke area. In the harbour, ngāti

wheke is a representative on the

Whakaraupo/Lyttelton Catchment

Management Plan so I’m

the science advisor for that.

You’re a third generation

tāngata tiaki, can you tell me

about your family and their

involvement?

My pōua was involved in

the establishment of the first

mataitai reserve at Rapaki. The

whole purpose is a recognition

of rangatiratanga and the

relationship with the traditional

fishing grounds and customary

fishing management within the

mataitai. They were made the

first ever tāngata tiaki.

Did having the family connection

prompt you to follow it

as a career?

It definitely influenced it, but I

didn’t go to university intending

to study it or come out involved

in this area. My Dad’s a GP so

I went down to study medicine

and in the first year I knew it

wasn’t for me. I’m not sure if I

would’ve got into my second

year, but regardless, I didn’t want

to do it. Funnily enough, I told

my dad and he laughed and said

“good, because I didn’t think

you wanted to do it, but I didn’t

want to influence your decision.”

I laugh at that because I could’ve

saved myself a year but, at the

same time, I had to realise it.

I changed course and ended

up gravitating towards marine

LEGACY: Tasman Gillies is continuing his family legacy as a

third generation tangata tiaki.

science and work associated with

mahinga kai.

Did you learn a lot about your

family in the process?

Yes. You start to run into

people that used to know my

pōua and talk to them. The

people I work with now at Ngāi

Tahu worked with him when

he was alive and, being an iwi,

some of them are related to him

as well so you hear stories. You

definitely learn the technical

things like dates and specific

legislative parts and what

mātaitai is and taiapure.

Considering the involvement

your pōua had, do you feel any

pressure to live up to his name?

Not at all – if anything it’s

more understanding about what

he wanted. The process that him

and Henry Couch were involved

with, and what they did to get

the mātaitai in place, it was a

lengthy process. For me, it’s

about understanding what he

wanted to achieve because Ngāi

Tahu always uses the saying

“Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri, ā muri

ake ne,” which means “for us

and our children after us.” It’s a

pretty straightforward concept.

Knowing my pōua was involved

in that whole process, and being

third generation tāngata tiaki, it’s

quite a literal thing for me. In his

mind, he wanted to sustain the

fisheries and have management

over it so our generation could

too. It comes back to the concept

of kaitiakitanga, or kaitiaki,

which means guardianship

or stewardship over the

environment. Ngāti Wheke

is my hapu, so that’s Rāpaki.

Our area is Lyttelton Harbour

or Whakaraupo and because

I whakapapa back to there,

kaitiaki or guardianship is also

a responsibility – so our world

view is we have a responsibility

to take care of it as well.

The Pilgrim: Soldier. Hostage. Survivor.

by Colin Maclachlan

I was naked, handcuffed, and blindfolded. All around me, the

voices of my captors shouted continuously in my ear – a stream

of Arabic I couldn’t understand. It became an endless mantra

as I struggled to work out what had gone wrong – what had

happened that landed me up in this horrible situation. I could feel

warm blood running down the back of my head, mixing with the

sweat and dust that already caked my body. My head throbbed

WIN THIS BOOK

WIN

THIS BOOK

from the repeated pistol barrel and rifle butt jabs. It felt like the onset

of a migraine, that kind of numbing pain that lets you know the fun’s

about to really start. Things took the express lift from bad to absolutely

horrendous… there seemed a real finality in the tone of what they said. My stomach sank…

Colin Maclachlan is instantly recognisable as the granite faced Scot who formed part of the

elite ex special forces team in the hit Channel 4 TV series SAS: Who Dares Wins. During his

22 years in the armed services, he faced danger and death on many occasions and The

Pilgrim is his action-packed autobiography. Growing up with an abusive parent, he was

forced to sign up for the army at the age of 15. After 10 years in the Royal Scots, he was the

first in his regiment in 20 years to pass the selection process for the SAS. Over the next 12

years he established a reputation as one of the most talented members of the elite special

force. He worked alongside MI5, MI6, 14 Int, GCHQ, SBS, CIA, Delta Force and Seal Team

6 – one of the few to have contact with all these departments. As a trained hostage negotiator

and rescuer, he was part of the notorious Operation Certain Death in Sierra Leone and was

the first sniper on the scene of a hijacked flight at Stansted. He was then on the other side of

a rescue mission when he was taken hostage in Basra in 2006 and brutally beaten before

being rescued by British troops. The Pilgrim is more than just a Boy’s Own story. It is a

heartfelt exploration of what it means to be a modern soldier, to work in the SAS, to have a

gun held to your head, to see your friends die beside you – all in the line of duty.

I Won’t Be Home for Christmas

by Amanda Prowse

Romance blossoms in New Zealand when a lonely mother visits her grown up daughter

at Christmas.

While her free-spirited daughter travels the world, Vivienne prepares for a lonely Christmas in

Bristol, with her best friend Ellen and her ancient dog Bob. Then a letter arrives that changes

everything. Vivienne’s daughter is getting married in New Zealand, and she wants her mum and

Ellen by her side. But out on the rugged coast of Tutukaka, the sea sparkles, romance beckons

– and Vivienne falls under the spell of another life. Will she leave everything she holds dear for

a chance at happiness? Or will her daughter be the only one to fall in love this Christmas?

in his grandfather’s footsteps

HOME: Tasman Gillies is at home in the harbour.

Being tāngata tiaki is not so

much about continuing his

legacy – it’s more what I should

be doing anyway. The kaitiaki

concept isn’t exclusive to Maori,

I think people should have a responsibility

towards the environment

and take care of it because

we’re being trusted to take care

of it while we’re here for future

generations.

Did you grow up at Rāpaki?

We moved to Rāpaki when I

was nine. I was born in Australia

and lived in a little town called

Alstonville near Byron Bay. Both

of my parents are Kiwi and I

have two older sisters. We kind

of grew up in the bush – we

lived in a big valley and the next

neighbour was a kilometre away

so we had all the room to play

around but we had to be careful

because it was Aussie. We knew

we were Maori but, in Australia,

we were absent from the culture

in a sense. When I moved here, it

was a big learning curve. I think

that was why our parents wanted

us to move back to see those

things.

What does your family do?

My mum and dad still live

in Rāpaki – he’s a doctor. My

sister works for the Ministry of

Education, but she was previously

a Maori teacher at Lincoln

High School. My other sister is a

dentist in Masterton.

What was it like moving to

Rāpaki?

It was a shock initially. You

can know you’re Maori but then

someone goes “oh you’re Maori,

do you want to be in the Kapa

Haka group?” I didn’t even know

what that was. People look at

you funny because they know

things about your culture that

you don’t. But in saying that, my

sister became a Maori teacher.

It’s been a massive learning

curve but also a really good one.

It’s more than the acknowledgement

I’m Maori now. Now I’m

part of it.

Where did you go to school?

I went to Lyttelton West then

Cashmere High School.

I heard you were head boy,

too? You kept that one quiet.

Yeah I was . . . that was a laugh.

Do you have any hidden

talents?

I won the dance competition

at the work Christmas function

out of like 300 people. I don’t

know what kind of dancing I

was doing and when and where I

picked it up . . . I just free-styled.

I think I picked it up from those

Step Up films from years ago. I

was dressed as The Wiggles with

a few of the guys from work.

What do you do for fun?

I love surfing and skiing and I

used to do waka ama, too, which

is outrigger canoeing.

Have you travelled overseas?

In 2014, after I had submitted

my masters thesis, I went to

Canada. I lived in Whistler for a

year working at the bar and on

the mountain and just skied and

had fun. I had a good time and,

by the end of the year, I came

back wanting to make use of my

degree and be more involved in

something besides living paycheck

to paycheck.

Were there any bear encounters?

Yeah, walking through the

village early morning and I was

still quite tired and went through

the forest section in the valley.

I looked up and there’s a beer

standing just in front of me. He

didn’t really care so I just turned

around cause I didn’t want to

deal with it. You get them everywhere.

They’re quite clever so a

lot of the door handles are knobs

because they know how to open

the levers. Stuff like that I wasn’t

used to. The raccoons were

hilarious but they’re the weirdest

creatures that waddle around.

REAL ESTATE

Experience the magic of Clifton

22 Tuawera Terrace, Sumner

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 2 living areas | 1 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing # FM5018

Homes like this on the lower slopes of

Clifton Hill are seldom available, especially

ones so tastefully revitalized.

Nestled in a family-friendly street, this

property really sings with an uplifting

seaside energy. Crisp, clean lines and

interesting angles feature throughout the

thoughtfully configured house. Beautifully

polished floors, new carpets, and fresh

colours complement the dynamic and

breathtaking views over Pegasus Bay and

the city, across to the alps and Kaikouras.

Large, sun-soaked living areas flow onto

multiple sea-facing decks offering plenty

of options for family time and year-round

entertaining. Four north-facing bedrooms,

two with ensuites, give you the option of

either guest accommodation or a work

from home scenario with the lower level

having separate access, ensuite and private

deck. The sunny, contemporary kitchen has

views to the ocean and cleverly connects to

the dining/living area.

The expansive, flat lawn and established

sub tropical garden with mature

native trees, offers a private, sheltered

microclimate with spaces for all the family

to enjoy. As well, a large internal access

garage has excellent storage capacity and

an adjoining study nook is ideal for office

or hobbies.

The location is superb with the wonders of

the ever-developing Sumner and Redcliffs

at your doorstep. Only a few minutes walk

down handy tracks and you’re at the beach

and Sumner Village, with its eclectic mix

of cafes and restaurants, beach culture

and highly desirable school options. Don’t

miss this property that has been a muchloved

family home for 22 years. Now is the

time to pounce on a true piece of Clifton

paradise.
