Decision looms over

Sumner skate ramp site

• By Annabelle Dick

A DECISION on whether

Sumner’s skate ramp can stay

where it is, is expected to be

made this week.

The half pipe, on the bend

of Marriner St and Wakefield

Ave, has been operating without

a resource consent and the

city council is reviewing what

enforcement action to take.

But Sumner business owners

Chris and Roydon Gage-Smart,

of Sumner Re Treat, say the

skate ramp has created serious

noise issues and is also having an

impact on their business.

“We’ve had kids skating up

until midnight and it’s driving

us and our clients in our

apartments crazy,” Mr

Gage-Smart said.

The skate ramp has been on

the temporary Wakefield Ave

site since last winter and is

facilitated by the Sumner

Residents’ Community

Association.

Last week, the city council

issued a compliance notice to

either remove the ramp, reduce

its size or apply for a resource

consent by last Friday.

But the city council backtracked

after it realised the ramp

was part of a transitional city

grant.

The city council’s planning

department has requested a legal

review on what enforcement

action to take and the

compliance date for its removal

is now on hold.

The skate ramp originally

sat on the corner of Wakefield

Ave and Nayland St but the city

council asked the association to

move it last year so construction

could begin on the Sumner

Centre.

“The council knew we were

moving to this site and told us

to move. We asked them

We trust you have had a nice

Christmas break. We are now back

on deck and taking new listings.

2017 please give us a call to discuss

the many options available. We

honesty and integrity and our team

are committed to achieving the

best possible result for you.

to find us a site and they

couldn’t and told us to find

some privately-owned land,”

Sumner Community Residents’

Association member Kimberley

Mossman said.

The current site belongs to a

local resident who loaned it to

the association to put the ramp

on for the interim.

the ramp to the former Marine

GREAT TO see Di France

rewarded for her work at the

Redcliffs Tennis Club.

Sports clubs can’t survive without

people like Di so it’s fantastic

news that she has been recognised

by Tennis NZ (see page 3).

I’ve seen many good sports

clubs fall by the wayside over the

years; usually because the administrators

aren’t solid enough; or

the clubs simply can’t get people

to do the large amounts of volunteer

work needed.

Di has been tied up with the

club for many years and says she

is humbled by with the Volunteer

of the Year award she received at a

ceremony in Auckland.

And well done to the people or

person who nominated Di for the

award.

Also today, we reveal the issues

surrounding the skate ramp in

central Sumner. See page 1.

Di takes big tennis award

DISTINCTION: Di France alongside her husband, Roger, after

she received the Volunteer of the Year award from Tennis

NZ.

• By Gordon Find later

DI FRANCE has been

acknowledged by Tennis NZ for

her work rebuilding one of the

city’s oldest clubs.

The Redcliffs Tennis Club

president was awarded the

Volunteer of the Year award

at Tennis NZ’s annual awards

night this month.

Mrs France travelled to

Auckland to attend the awards

and got the chance to meet the

country’s best players and see

some top international action

on court at the ASB Classic,

which was being played at the

same time.

“It was an honour to be

included in the function, it was

great. I felt terribly humbled by

it,” she said.

The award came in recognition

of her role in reopening

the Redcliffs club after it was

devastated by the February 2011

earthquake.

“The courts were completely

demolished; they had to be fully

reinstated,” said Mrs France.

The club was in recess for

two years while it raised the

$200,000 needed to rebuild the

courts.

Mrs France was instrumental

in the club surviving extinction.

She stepped in as project

manager, applying for community

grants and overseeing the

reinstatement of the damaged

courts. When the club reopened

in May 2013, she was elected as

president. Under her leadership,

membership has grown from

40 juniors and 22 seniors to 132

juniors and 35 affiliated senior

members.

This hasn’t been her first stint

in the role. Mrs France served

as the club’s president during

the early 1980s before becoming

inactive in the sport for over

20 years. When rumours of the

club’s potential closure came to

light following the earthquake,

she was prompted into action.

France continues to be the

driving force behind the tennis

club. She has established junior

tennis coaching, first by engaging

Stu Chalmers as junior

coach in 2013, then by organising

Evie Ruegg to take on the

head coach role.

She also established social

senior club tennis on Tuesday

and Friday mornings, which she

herself attends.

Along with her husband,

Roger, Mrs France undertakes

regular maintenance of the

courts, club house and hall.

The club leased its hall to

the displaced Redcliffs Public

Library until December last

year. Mrs France said the next

challenge was to develop the

club to utilise the hall space now

available.

Using networks she has built

throughout Redcliffs, Mrs

France encourages strong community

and family participation

in club events.

She regularly offers her own

services to club activities, which

may include cooking sausages

or preparing afternoon tea for

prize-givings and end of season

parties.

In Brief

BABY IN LOCKED CAR

Firefighters were called to help

get a baby out of a locked car

parked on Sumner’s Esplanade on

Monday. Sumner Volunteer Fire

Brigade received the call at about

11.10am. However, when firefighters

arrived, the car had been unlocked.

A Fire Service spokesman

said it was an accident and the

baby’s father had arrived with the

spare key for the vehicle before

firefighters arrived. Meanwhile,

a woman was seriously injured

when her vehicle crashed into a

retaining wall near Governors

Bay at about 10.50am on Monday.

Firefighters waited for the ambulance

to arrive before getting the

woman out of the vehicle.

STRANGE BLACK CLOUD

A mysterious black plume that

invaded Lyttelton Harbour last

week was likely soot from a

departing vessel. Environment

Canterbury initially said it was

coal dust from the port. But ECan

regional leader investigations and

incident response Valyn Barrett

said further investigation showed

the substance was likely to be

soot from the stack of a departing

vessel and not coal dust as first

thought. Ms Barrett said it was

non-toxic to marine life and it

could not be cleaned up with a

boom.

The team at Smart

Real Estate wishes

you a very happy

Mary Kamo

Prison chaplain role rewarded

DEDICATED:

Mary Kamo

received a

New Year

Honour for

services to

the welfare

of prisoners

after being

a prison

chaplain for

33 years.

Mary Kamo spent 33 years working with prisoners to turn their lives around. Bridget

Rutherford spoke to her about helping inmates, living at Birdlings Flat, and being

proud of her kids

You were made a Companion of the

New Zealand Order of Merit in the

New Year Honours. How did you

feel when you found out?

I was astonished; I thought they

must have had the wrong person.

But when I realised I felt very, very

privileged. I found out about two

months before the announcement.

When you’re told, you have to keep it

confidential and that was the hardest

part, I couldn’t tell anybody!

You received the honour for

your work with the inmates

at Christchurch Women’s,

Paparua Men’s and

Rolleston prisons as

chaplain. Can you tell

me what your work

involved?

It involved visiting

the prison, meeting

with inmates, doing

sacraments,

and Sunday

services. Just

really trying to

assist inmates

in getting

some sense

of their own

WHANAU: Mary Kamo loves to spend time with her family.

spirituality. A lot of people would say

they believed in some sort of faith,

but a lot don’t know how to bring it

into daily living. More than 50 per

cent of women in prison are Maori,

and because of my involvement I was

able to meet them at that level and

also bring in people from their own

iwi or kaumatua to come in a meet

with them and do their whakapapa

with them. I worked in Paparua and

Rolleston prisons as well, but my

heart was in the women’s prison because

what we need to do, I believe,

is find alternatives to imprisonment.

Now I’m not talking about them not

taking responsibility for criminal

activity, but I do think there are

probably better ways of handling it

than breaking up families, children

going into care, and then that whole

damage being very difficult to repair

when the mothers come out of

prison. Pillars say that the families

do the sentence, and that’s absolutely

true.

with New Year’s honour

How did you come into the

role?

I had been very involved in

the community in the Christian

family movement. Then I moved

onto working as a volunteer for

Whakatata House, I was volunteering

there for some years.

Then I got involved in starting up

the restorative justice outreach

in Christchurch. I was asked if I

would take on the role as prison

chaplain and with a little bit of

trepidation agreed to do that and

it went from there. It was while I

was a prison chaplain that I got

involved with Pillars, a charity

for children of prisoners, because

my husband, Ray, and I were

nominated to be the kaumatua

for Pillars.

Did you ever expect to be doing

it for 33 years?

No, I didn’t. I had a few times

thought I would retire but I had

a project I really wanted to get

established and that was for

Tukutuku panels to be put up in

the prison chapel, specifically the

ones that are called the stairway

to heaven. It seemed to me the

chapel was very mono-cultural

and I thought it should reflect

something of the lives of the

women who worshipped in there

as well. I used to say to the prison

– because there was often difficulty

with finance – if you want

to get rid of me, get the panels

done, I’ll leave then (laughs). The

day the panels went up, that’s the

day I retired. I have to give credit

to Father Jim Consedine. He invited

me to consider chaplaincy,

he is the one who supported

prison chaplaincy in Christchurch,

and he was prison chaplain

himself for many years.

Do you miss it?

I do miss it, I miss the women.

I am a kaiwhakamana, who are

mainly Maori elders, and the

Government set up a scheme

for elders to be able to visit

any prison in the country and

support their people. That system

means these elders are available

on request or available to visit

the prison, and meet with

people, so I will go back as

kaiwhakamana.

SIBLINGS:

Both Miriama

and Ward

Kamo work in

television.

Is there anything that has really

stuck with you during your

work?

The care that was extended

to me. That’s what I found in

the prison, the majority of the

women would care for each other,

then staff do the same. There

were times where I asked myself

who was ministering who. It matured

me, expanded my thinking

and expanded my heart.

And you live near Little River

don’t you?

I live in Birdlings Flat, we

recycled a house off the red zone

from Burwood and set it up on

a property my husband had inherited.

We lived at Birdlings Flat

before our first child was born,

and when we realised schools

and doctors weren’t that close,

we bought in Brighton. We lived

there right up until the earthquake

meant we had to move

back to Birdlings. I love it here.

And one of your daughters,

Miriama Kamo, is quite a

familiar face for many Kiwis.

She is, we’ve got used to it. She

is very good at what she does,

what you see on screen is Miriama

as she is. That is the person

that she is and that’s what we’re

proud of.

Did you ever think when she

was young that she would be

fronting shows such as Sunday

and Kiwi Living?

No (laughs). Miriama’s shy.

Most people won’t believe that.

She was so shy that she wouldn’t

talk and she would hide behind

my skirt if anyone said hello to

her.

What do your other children

do?

We’ve got five – the oldest, our

son Ward, is on Native Affairs.

Our eldest daughter Michaela

works in Tauranga for the Bay

of Plenty Health Board, then

Amos, works for the New Zealand

Transport Agency. Then

our youngest, Sian, works for an

insurance company in Auckland.

We have lots of grandchildren –

13.

Where did you grow up?

I was born in Dunedin of

which I’m very proud. If my

husband is watching Canterbury

play Otago he has to watch it

with my blue and gold scarf

hanging across the television.

So what brought you up to

Christchurch?

That was my big OE! A

girlfriend and I were going to

go overseas, but we hadn’t seen

much of New Zealand so we

started off in Queenstown. Then

my mother said we want you in

Christchurch (because they had

moved there) for your 21st. So the

very next day after my 21st we

went to a nightclub/coffee

bar. And here was this musician

who owned it and that was the

end of it. A friend invited us

to meet him there on a Friday

night, so that’s when I really met

Ray. I’m still threatening to go

overseas!

Sailing around Croatia for hope

• By Annabelle Dick

LYTTELTON resident

Ingrid Robertson may have a

debilitating condition but it’s

not stopping her from sailing

Croatia’s coastline.

Ms Robertson, 50, has been

selected to take part in Sailing

Sclerosis’ Oceans of Hope – an

international sailing expedition

for people with multiple

sclerosis.

It will see her travel to Croatia

where she will sail a yacht

around the Dalmatian coast

with other people affected by

MS from around the world.

“I like proving a point to

myself that I can still do things

and not be disabled by my MS.

It’s a little bit outside of my

comfort zone because I’m going

to the other side of the world on

my own and doing something

I haven’t done in a while,” she

said.

Ms Robertson first encountered

Oceans of Hope when a

yacht came to Auckland in 2014

and she sailed around the harbour

on it for several hours.

Ever since then, she’s been

hooked and wanted to take part.

Ms Robertson was invited to

an expedition in Croatia in May

where she will be the only New

Zealander on board one of the

“There will be 10 yachts with a

crew of six on each that all have

MS,” she said.

“To me, it’s about meeting

people that have the same condition.

It will be so interesting

from everybody and making

new friends.”

Ms Robertson was diagnosed

with MS in 1999 at 33. She’s now

on the board of directors for the

Society of Canterbury and

its research committee.

She’s also more adventurous

than most having done all sort

of daredevil-type activities.

“I’ve always been active. I’ve

done the bungy jump, I’ve

done the sky dive, I’ve been in

cars in race tracks going up to

200 km/h. I love the rush and

adrenaline,” she said.

But before Ms Robertson can

take part, she needs help financing

the trip.

Skate ramp

decision

looms

•From page 1

Nearby residents say they’ve

witnessed drinking, littering and

users purposely banging their

boards against the ramp to keep

neighbours awake.

“It’s wooden and it creates

a lot of noise. If there’s half a

dozen kids there in the evening,

it’s very loud. The local nearby

residents, we’ve got together and

we’re against it. We just want

it out of here,” Mr Gage-Smart

said.

Mrs Mossman said the

problems were related to older

teenagers coming into Sumner

in the evening when the ramp

was unlocked.

The residents’ association

agreed to unlock and lock the

ramp at 8am and 9.30pm each

day to mitigate issues.

“I get it doesn’t suit everyone

but what are kids going to be

doing if there’s no skate ramp?

These kids are really engaged

and skating is a really tough

activity. They’re a great bunch of

kids,” she said.

Young local skaters who

frequently use it wanted to see it

stay as well.

Accolade for

restaurant

LYTTELTON restaurant Roots

has been named in a prestigious

list of the world’s 1000 best

eateries.

La Liste is a restaurant guide

compiled from hundreds of

guidebooks and online review

sites to list the world’s 1000 top

restaurants.

Eight New Zealand restaurants

made the list and Roots

was the only restaurant outside

of Auckland to make the cut.

It’s owned by Christy Martin

and Giulio Sturla who opened

the restaurant in 2012.

Roots also won Cuisine

Magazine’s Restaurant of the

Year award in 2015. It was also

named runner-up best new

restaurant in the Good Food

Awards in 2014.

Auckland-based restaurants

The French Cafe, The Grove,

Sidart, Kazuya, Cocoro, Merediths

and Baduzzi also feature

on the list.

Last year there were four Kiwi

restaurants on the list, compared

to this year’s eight.

My Kitchen Rules NZ judge

Ben Bayly is executive chef of

two restaurants on the list, The

Grove and Baduzzi. He told

the Weekend Herald he was “so

proud” to be associated with

two establishments which were

included.

Beachgoers put off by weather

• By Annabelle Dick and Fraser

Walker-Pearce

THE BUSIEST days of the

lifesaving season are yet to

come.

A mixture of cooler temperatures

and getting the right

messages to the public has seen a

safe summer so far, clubs say.

Normally the busiest part of a

beach lifeguard’s season is over

Christmas and New Year – but

not this year due to cooler temperatures

over the festive period.

Sumner Surf Lifesaving Club

lifeguard captain Henry Lawson

said the traditional busy period

on the beaches has passed, but it

was quieter than normal due to

the weather and surf conditions.

“The weather hasn’t been great

and the surf hasn’t been very

good. There hasn’t been much

of a wave – a couple of days

have been all right but it’s pretty

small,” he said.

But Mr Lawson expects it to

get busier as a large number of

people are returning from holidays

away.

“There’s a drop off when people

head out of town but when

it’s the end of the holidays and

families have been to the park,

museum and done everything

they can then the beach is always

there,” he said.

“ We expect a kick up from

here.”

Incidents at Sumner have also

been low, Mr Lawson said the

biggest injury so far was a finger

that wouldn’t stop bleeding.

“It’s been pretty relaxed with

incidents due to the weather.

Rips and currents aren’t very

powerful so people have been

able to manage it,” he said.

Meanwhile, further north,

New Brighton Surf Lifesaving

Club lifeguard manager Scotty

Roberts said the traditional

busy period on the beaches has

passed, but it was quieter than

normal because the weather

“hasn’t been that fantastic” so

far.

“I’m hoping that kind of

weather is still to come, I really

want to see more sun come

through and with that then

comes the increase in numbers

on the beach,” he said.

Waimairi president Mike

Litten said the club has seen

“slightly” fewer people on the

beach compared to the last couple

of years.

“On our beach it’s very familyoriented,

further down in [New]

Brighton it’s more adults, but on

ours we tend to see families and

young people. Due to that there’s

probably been fewer saves than

at this time last year I think,” he

said.

Harwood in tune with health for

Debbie Harwood will perform with fellow When

The Cat’s Away singers Annie Crummer and

Margaret Urlich, as well as Sharon O’Neill at the

Selwyn Sounds concert in March. She spoke to

Tom Doudney about her latest endeavours

DEBBIE HARWOOD has

always been interested in helping

people heal but soon she will be

expressing that desire through a

form other than music.

The former When The Cats

Away singer recently qualified as

a hypnotherapist after completing

a two-month course in San

Francisco and is working on

setting up her own practice this

year.

Come March 4 though, her

focus will be on using her vocal

talents to woo the crowd at

Selwyn Sounds when she performs

on a bill stacked with Kiwi

rock royalty. Also playing will be

Dragon, Mi-Sex, the Jordan Luck

Band and Jason Kerrison, among

others.

Harwood said herself, Crummer,

Urlich and O’Neill had

strong chemistry which had been

key to their success.

“Seeing as we have been

making music since the early 80s,

and the 70s in Sharon’s situation,

we have been right through

people’s lives with them as well,”

she said.

“I never ever, ever take that

for granted, I will always get on

stage with enormous respect for

that, that those people have been

through lots of different things,

great things and sad things, with

our music as a soundtrack to

those things.”

Harwood had been interested

in hypnotherapy since undergoing

it herself in her early 20s,

when it helped her overcome

asthma and other health problems

which were affecting her

singing.

However, she only made the

decision to train as a hypnotherapist

early last year.

“I love being able to help people

make changes to core beliefs so

I literally woke up at 8am in the

morning with this feeling, by

10am that morning I had booked

my flights and registered with the

school in San Francisco and off I

went,” she said.

“I am quite impulsive and

when I get a strong feeling about

something I will act on it.”

Harwood has been plagued by

health problems throughout her

career and in 2009 had to seek

more conventional medical help.

Seriously ill at the age of 49, she

underwent open heart surgery

at St George’s Hospital to fix a

failed mitral valve and hole in her

heart.

“One of the funniest things

when I woke up from the operation

“I was looking at the ward

doctor and he had long hair

and blue scrubs and his name

tag said David Bowie – that was

his actual name. I am pretty sure

I said to him at some point: ‘I

think your best work was Life on

Mars, David’. He was a musician

too.”

Her health was now better than

it had been for more than 20

years and felt she had received “a

second go at life.”

Harwood has just recorded a

new song called Isolated which

she hopes to release in the next

two months. She plans on recording

four more songs but is not

expecting to put out a full album.

She was looking forward to

playing on the same bill with the

other Selwyn Sounds artists, such

as Dragon which she had a long

association with.

Former Dragon keyboardist

Alan Mansfield now plays with

Harwood, O’Neill, Crummer

and Urlich, and Harwood had

been good friends with another

former Dragon keyboardist Paul

Hewson.

In fact Hewson’s death from

a drug overdose in 1984, when

he was 33, had a profound effect

on her career. Having just left

Dragon, Hewson was staying

with Harwood and her flatmate

in Auckland at the time.

I knew I had the police on my

said.

“I was 24 and my career had

only just started, and so my very

first single that I released in 1984

I dedicated to him. It was called

If That Will Make you Happy and

I won a music award the following

The great red rock hunt

CONTRACTORS need help

tracking down red rock in

Lyttelton to reface a retaining

wall.

Dubbed ‘The Great

Lyttelton Red Rock Hunt,’

contractors have put out a call

to residents to look through

their properties for pieces of

rock so the wall on the cnr of

Coleridge Tce and Dublin St

can be finished.

City council project

manager Richard Humm said

contractors were running

short of the volcanic rock

needed for the external finish.

“The cost of restoring every

red rock wall is prohibitively

high, but key walls around the

town are being refaced using

salvaged rocks. Unfortunately,

we have run very short and

urgently need Lyttelton

residents to help us out by

rummaging through their

gardens, backyards or old

demolished buildings to find

pieces of rock that we can

use to finish some of our key

walls,” Mr Humm said.

The team need 389 sq m of

red rock to restore the wall.

They’re after pieces that are

about the size of a loaf of bread

or bigger.

significance, dating back to

the very early settlement of

Lyttelton, Mr Humm said, as

many of them were built in

the 19th century by inmates at

Lyttelton Gaol.

“We know there will

be red rock lying around

people’s properties that we

can hopefully take off their

hands and use to restore these

heritage walls,” Mr Humm

said.

“We can’t do every wall

around the town but by

restoring a few of these key

walls, we maintain the unique

heritage of the streetscape.”

Levy on tourists is overdue

BAY HARBOUR

A BRANCH OF

talks

about

bringing

the cruise

ships

back to

Lyttelton and generating

money to put towards

conservation efforts.

It was good to see the

cruise ship Europa 2

berthed in Lyttelton last

week and the extra business

its passengers would have

generated for Lyttelton and

city retail and food businesses

and Canterbury tourism

operators.

The Lyttelton Port of

Christchurch is focused on

expanding its container and

cargo operations, saying this

is more profitable than the

berthage fees it gets from

cruise ships. Yet as a city

council-owned company, LPC

also has a wider responsibility

to the city and regional

economy. Discussions

continue between LPC and

the council about a dedicated

cruise ship berth and how this

is to be funded.

Some 3.3 million people

visited New Zealand in the

year to March 2016. By 2022,

this number is expected to

reach 4.5 million. Tourism

has overtaken dairying as

New Zealand’s biggest earner.

Many tourists are attracted

by New Zealand’s spectacular

landscapes and natural areas.

Yet they contribute little to

their protection and are creating

significant people pressure

in some areas.

Akaroa is swamped by visitors

when cruise ships visit

and we had the first recorded

outbreak of noro-virus in

tramping huts in Nelson

Lakes National Park this

summer.

I believe many tourists

would be happy to help

protect the special places they

come to enjoy. The Green

Party’s Taonga Levy would

see international visitors pay

an extra $18 on top of existing

biosecurity charges when they

arrive in New Zealand.

This would generate

$46 million annually on average,

and $1.5 billion by 2050

to help the under-funded

Department of Conservation

control stoats, possums, rats

and other predators so our endangered

plants and wildlife

can thrive. The Taonga Levy

would help make Predator

Free New Zealand a reality.

The Taonga Levy would

also generate about $80

million over four years ($20

million per annum) to help

councils in tourist hot spots

provide basic tourism infrastructure.

Some communities with

a small rating base, such as

in the Mackenzie Basin, are

struggling to keep up with

the cost of providing and

maintaining tourist facilities

such as toilets, camper-van

dump stations and upgraded

wastewater schemes. The

Taonga Levy would help them

do this.

If New Zealand is to remain

an attractive tourist destination,

we need to do much

more to make our “clean

green” image real. Having international

tourists help fund

this is overdue.

Bid to keep pumping untreated

wastewater into harbours

• By Bridget Rutherford

UNTREATED wastewater will

continue to be poured into the

city’s waterways during storms

and high rainfall.

THe city council is applying

to Environment Canterbury

for a new resource consent to

continue discharging untreated

wastewater into the waterways

and harbours in emergencies.

More than 700,000 cu m of

wastewater, including sewage,

had been discharged into the

waterways since 2012.

Following the September

2010 earthquake, ECan granted

the city council consent for

occasional overflows into

waterways so it did not flood

onto properties.

However, because of

earthquake damage, a nonenforcement

agreement was put

in place.

But that ceases in March, so

the city council either needed

to comply with its original

consent, or apply for a new

one.

City council three waters

and waste acting head John

Moore said it was unlikely

to be able to meet its consent

conditions, as it appeared

the frequency of overflows

may exceed what was

allowed.

He said it would

be possible to stop

wastewater overflows

with a new pressure

sewer network, however,

that would cost $3

billion.

Wastewater includes

sewage and shower, washing

machine and sink water. The

wastewater system had built in

overflow points, which allowed

wastewater to be

released during storms.

It overflows into the

Avon and Heathcote

rivers, the estuary,

Lyttelton, Diamond

Harbour, Governors

Bay and Akaroa.

EMERGENCIES:

The city council

will apply for a

new resource

consent to

discharge

untreated

wastewater

into waterways

during high

rainfall.

Jenkins (left) said the national

standard for wastewater

discharges was once every two

years.

However, in Christchurch it

was happening once every six

months, he said.

For the city’s rivers to be used

safely for recreation, there could

not be any sewage flowing into

them, he said.

“Until that’s dealt with, we

can’t have swimmable Avon and

Heathcote rivers.”

Some Port Hills

tracks closed

due to danger

from rockfall

PEOPLE USING mountain bike

and walking tracks in the Port Hills

are being warned to keep away from

sign-posted areas due to dangerous

rock scaling and blasting work.

The blasting and scaling work is

part of a multi-million dollar project

to get the Sumner to Lyttelton corridor

re-opened.

A large area above and below

Sumner Rd on the Lyttelton side of

the Port Hills is currently extremely

dangerous and off-limits to the

public.

Residents are being advised to

stay off the walking and cycle tracks

in the area shown in the map at all

times, including weekends.

Signage and fencing has been

increased to make it clear where the

hazardous areas are and that people

should not enter.

The blasting and scaling work is

being carried out by McConnell

Dowell, in partnership with Beca,

Doug Hood Mining and Geovert,

and is being jointly funded by the

city council and the New Zealand

Transport Agency.

The aim is to remove any loose

rock that could fall onto Sumner Rd

ahead of repair work on the road

starting.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Make wise

choices for

holiday fun

BAY HARBOUR

PAGE 21

Don’t spend your holiday

recuperating from a preventable

accident. The double whammy of

the holiday and summer seasons

are in full swing. Accidents lead

the way for ambulance rides and

healing time. An accident is just

that. An event that happens from

a series of events, causing bodily

harm. In most cases those events

could have been prevented with

a little more thought behind the

decision.

At Physiotherapy Associates,

located at 86 Wainoni Rd,

Wainoni, they pride themselves

in assisting the healing process

and they are strong advocates in

that awareness and assessment

are the key to prevention.

“We stress to our clients, the

following; always have a first aid

kit in the car, on the boat, or at

your location and do a first aid

course. Muscle and ligament

strains and sprains are some

of the most common accident

results.” Says head physiotherapist

Richard.

Alcohol consumption is one

of the biggest contributors to

any accident. As people mature

in many cases they acquire that,

“invisible, superhero syndrome”

where they feel they can do

actions with the same buoyancy as

when they were younger. In many

instances this leads to the result

of a fall, tweak or miscalculate in

the action and an injury incurs.”

Richard advises, “If there is

severe pain, deformity or inability

to bear weight seek medical help

or call 111 immediately. If soft

tissue pain does not improve by

the order of about 50% within 48

hours, visit your GP, afterhours or

your local physiotherapist.”

Fun is what life is all about.

Creating memories and enjoying

yourself. Just remember when

water-skiing, swimming,

playing cricket, touch, tramping,

skateboarding, running, biking,

walking, or any physical activity

to assess the situation, look at the

potential outcome and make that

choice to protect yourself and

those you love.

If an accident happens take

the following support steps and

Think RICE and HARM.

R est; the injured part.

I ce; apply a cold pack for 20

mins

C ompression; bandage to apply

compression to the injured part

to prevent swelling and bleeding.

E levation; the part to help

reduce swelling.

Avoid H.A.R.M.

H eat; don’t use hot packs on a

fresh injury.

A lcohol; avoid drinking it

increases swelling and bleeding

R unning; or exercise involving

the injured part

M assage; or rubbing can make

swelling and bleeding worse.

Today people look to Dr Google

for answers. Remember news is

sensationalized and more than

50% of what’s online is incorrect.

Check with your healthcare

professional before diagnosing

yourself.

Grout & Tile Specialists

Summer is a great time

to attend to maintenance

on outdoor areas while the

weather is easier to work with.

This can be replacing cracked

grout/mortar/tiles/pavers or

completing an overdue clean

of decks and patios. Jaded and

worn tiled surfaces can be

given a professional ‘uplift’ by

Groutpro. A free assessment

and quote is the first step.

An upgrade of kitchens and

bathrooms prior to sale gives a

considerable lift in appearance,

helping achieve the homes true value.

Also, showers are often overlooked in the

busyness of life, leaving some work to do

before putting the home on the market.

As a general rule, shower silicon needs

replaced every 3-5years and grout needs

maintenance between 8-10 years.

tile restoration options. Ph 027 746 7632.

Is HOME the best place for me as I age?

This is a question many older people (and

NOTIFICATION OF RESTRICTED

FIRE SEASON

(IMPOSED PURSUANT TO SECTION

22(2) OF THE FOREST AND RURAL

FIRES ACT 1977)

CHRISTCHURCH CITY RURAL FIRE

AREA INCLUDING BANKS PENINSULA

Notice is hereby given that a Restricted Fire Season

is imposed by the Christchurch City Council over the

rural area for which the Council is the Fire Authority,

for the period midnight Wednesday 11 January 2017

until further notice.

The rural area for which the Council is the Fire Authority

under the Forest and Rural Fires Act 1977 covers all of

the district administered by the Council as territorial

authority pursuant to the Local Government Act 2002

(i.e. the City of Christchurch) except:

• The Christchurch, Brooklands, New Brighton,

Sumner, Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour, Governors

Bay, Little River and Akaroa Urban Fire Districts

established under Section 26 of the Fire Service

Act 1975; and

• State areas and any associated Fire Safety

Margin administered by the Department of

Conservation.

Please Note:

1. The restriction does not apply to barbeques

(in enclosed containers) lit on a property serviced

by a domestic water supply.

2. During a restricted fire season it is an offence to

light any fire in the open air unless a permit has

been obtained from the Christchurch City Council.

Applications for permits may be made to the

Christchurch City Council, Civic Offices, 53 Hereford

Street, Christchurch (telephone 941-8999). Please

allow at least 3 working days prior to burn date to

allow for time for site inspection and issue of permit.

3. Any permit issued is not a legal defence to claims

for damage which may arise from the fire. The

responsibility for its control and the liability for

any damage which might arise lie with the person

lighting the fire.

4. The continuation of the restriction will be constantly

reviewed and the restriction may be lifted or extended

depending on the fire risk. Any such alteration will be

publicly notified.

NOTICE OF PROHIBITION OF FIRES IN THE OPEN AIR WITHIN THE

CITY OF CHRISTCHURCH

(IMPOSED PURSUANT TO SECTION 13 OF THE CHRISTCHURCH URBAN FIRE

SAFETY BYLAW 2014)

Notice is hereby given that the prohibition on fires in the open air over those parts of the district which are fire district

declared or constituted under Section 26 of the Fire Service Act 1975 is imposed by Clause 13 of the Christchurch

Urban Fire Safety Bylaw 2014 for the period from midnight Saturday 14 January 2017 until further notice.

The prohibition applies to those parts of the district which are a Fire District declared as constituted under Section

26 of the Fire Service Act 1975 and these are Brooklands, New Brighton, Sumner, Lyttelton, Governors Bay, Diamond

Harbour, Little River and Akaroa and Christchurch Urban Fire Districts (where District is defined as meaning “for

which the Council is the territorial authority”). The Council may extend the prohibition.

During any such prohibition no person shall light any fire in the open air and no person being the occupier of any

premises shall cause, permit, or suffer any such fire to be lit there or to continue to burn there. The penalty for such

an offence is a fine of up to $20,000.

The purpose of the prohibition is to conserve public safety by preventing danger from fire.

Note: The Council may at any time, where in its opinion special reason exists or may exist to prevent the outbreak

or spread of fire, prohibit the lighting of fires in the open air for any specified additional period of time within all or

any districts of the city as listed above.

This prohibition does not apply to:

1. Any barbeque, pizza oven or hangi provided:

(a) it is not likely to constitute a danger to any person or property by reason of its location, risk of spread, inadequate

containment, prevailing wind or otherwise; and

(b) there is immediately available a pressurised water supply connected to a hose; and

(c) it is adequately supervised.

2. Any fire in the open air in respect of which the occupier of the land upon which the fire is situated has obtained from

the Council an exemption from the prohibition.

Exemptions may, under Section 15 of the Bylaw, be granted in exceptional circumstances in that:

(a) the fire is urgently required to prevent, reduce or overcome any hazard to life, health, property or the environment; and

(b) the use of fire is the most efficient and effective means to reduce any risk of hazard to life, health, property

or the environment.

Applications for exceptions may be made in writing to the Regulatory Compliance Unit, Civic Offices, PO Box 73049

Christchurch 8154 or at any Council Service Centre. The issue of an exemption is not a legal defence against claims

for damage arising by reason of the fire. The responsibility for its control and liability for any damage which may arise

lies with the person lighting the fire.
