Support mounts for skate ramp

SUMNER RESIDENTS have

come out strongly for the

Wakefield Ave skate ramp to be

left where it is.

Last week, Bay Harbour News

reported concerns of Sumner Re

Treat owners Chris and Roydon

Gage-Smart who said the skate

ramp had created serious noise

issues and was impacting on

their business.

But reaction to their bid to

move the skate ramp to another

site has been swift and sharp.

Bay Harbour News has

received numerous readers’

responses – the vast majority

saying it needs to stay where it is.

(See responses pages 4 and 5).

City council head of

compliance Tracey Weston said a

noise reading had not been taken

for the skate ramp because it had

not been used in the past week

or so.

“Council will continue to be

in regular contact with the principal

complainant to determine

when the ramp is in use to enable

effective monitoring.”

The ramp was not consented,

so this month the city

council ordered it to be either

removed, consented or reduced

in size.

But that order was put on hold,

after the city council discovered

it had been built using a transitional

city grant.

The ramp’s future will be

decided when the noise test had

been completed, but it is unknown

when that will be done.

Mrs Gage-Smart said the ramp

had been much quieter since last

week’s story featured.

“The whole decision of the

notified or non-notified consent

is resting on him [noise control

officer] getting a reading, but

the kids just aren’t there making

enough noise.”

She had been told to call the

city council when it was noisy,

she said.

“We don’t mind the ramp, we

just don’t want it on our front

door.”

The Sumner Community Residents’

Association has agreed to

lock the ramp between 9.30pm

and 8am each day to prevent

noise at night.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham said a permanent

location for a skate park was

needed urgently.

Lifelong

Jean Thompson has

War 2, the Vietnam War,

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

THERE’S BEEN a big reaction to

our front page article last week on

the Wakefield Ave skate park.

And almost all of the readers

who have responded want the park

to stay where it is (see page 1, and

for reaction pages 4-5).

Of course Bay Harbour News has

been given a serve for our coverage

– some of it Trump-like possibly?

Ouch!

We of course were reporting

the concerns of a business couple

who want the skate park shifted,

and they have the right to air their

views.

Today we also report on Edith

Cavell Lifecare resident Jean

Thompson who has celebrated her

100th birthday.

Jean spent decades protesting

against war and in a time when it

was more than just frowned on. She

also plays bowls at the rest home.

The world needs more Jean

Thompson’s.

New principal

appointed for

Lyttelton

Primary

School

TO GO: These properties on Nayland St were bought to create

a car park for Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre.

• By Annabelle Dick

NEARLY $1 million has been

spent on land to create a new car

park in Sumner.

The city council spent

$900,000 on buying two properties

on Nayland St to create a

car park for Matuku Takotako:

Sumner Centre, which is currently

under construction.

The properties, 31 and 33 Nayland

St, cost one-tenth of the $10

million budget for the centre, on

the corner of Wakefield Ave and

Nayland St.

City council property consultancy

manager Angus Smith

said it bought the two properties

to support its application

when applying for the centre’s

resource consent.

The centre includes a new

community centre, library and

museum and is expected to be

completed in April.

COMING ALONG: The two properties will be used for a car

park for the new Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre, which is

due to open in April.

$1m bid to overcome parking woes

The properties will provide

between 20 and 30 car parks,

depending on final design, Mr

Smith said.

Since the Sumner Village

Master Plan was brought in to

redevelop the area, the loss of

car parking has been a contentious

issue within the community.

As part of the plan, parking

in the village would be reduced

by 26 spaces. Once the plan goes

ahead there will only be six car

parks on Wakefield Ave.

Last month, the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board voted to relocate the existing

bus stop on the bend of

Marriner St and Wakefield Ave

to outside Stoked Surf Shop and

other businesses on Wakefield

Ave.

That will also see the removal

of three on-street car parks

outside those stores.

LYTTELTON Primary

School will have a new

principal when school starts on

Monday.

Brendan Wright was

previously principal at Hanmer

Springs School.

The school, a merger of the

former

Lyttelton

Main and

Lyttelton

West schools,

operated

from two

different

sites for two

years before

opening on

Brendan Wright

the same site in May last year.

Mr Wright’s appointment

followed the resignation of

former principal Diana Feary

last year, after a number of

complaints from parents

about management,

communication, teacher morale

and the impact on children’s

education.

Lyttelton’s festival season

Project

Lyttelton event

co-ordinator

Lucette Hindin

talks about

the upcoming

activities

at this year’s Lyttelton

SummerFest

Everyone likes the idea of

learning something new. But

making time for creativity often

comes last these days. Busy lives

mean self-expression, imagination

and fun can fall off the bottom

of the priority list.

If you can relate to this, the

Creative Sampler might be for

you. It’s a day of short, creative,

taster workshops that Project

Lyttelton is organising for Lyttelton

SummerFest.

The sampler is a day of speed

workshops starting on the hour

and lasting 45 minutes each.

Four workshops run each hour,

with a total of 20 offered. You

can dabble, get a taste for something

you are interested in, and

come and go throughout the day,

without the commitment of a

longer or weekly class.

The second new event in the

SummerFest this year is the Big

Whakaraupo Lyttelton Community

Barbecue on The Grassy.

Planned as a farewell to summertime,

it’ll be on March 5. There

will be a bouncy castle, heritage

games, a licensed bar and

barbecues to cook up your own

favourite food, plus local DJs will

be providing sounds. There will

be a simultaneous party at the

pool next door too.

SummerFest will also feature

the fifth Strange Bedfellows at

the Lyttelton Arts Factory on

February 26. With a whole new

group of artists mixing it up

together and presided over by the

inimitable Viktor Kropotski, the

premise is ‘what happens when

my art form meets yours?’ See local

creative folk taking risks and

merging their artistic forms with

BIG NEW YEAR SALE

13b Parkhouse Rd, CHRISTCHURCH

others in fresh unexpected ways.

SummerFest’s goal is to bring

people together through the arts,

music and broad appeal social

events. We also list other community

events in the programme

to help promote all the wonderful

things that are happening in

our community this summer.

Visit www.lyttelton.net.nz for

more information.

We said:

Apartment owners near

the skate ramp on the

bend of Marriner St and

Wakefield Ave in Sumner

are upset about the

amount of noise users are

causing and want the ramp

to go

You said:

Sarah Agnew – I really

enjoyed reading your very biased

article this morning. It’s sad

once again that you give such

a negative light on something

in our community that has functioned

without any problems for

more than four years. We have

been campaigning tirelessly to

get these kids a permanent place

to skate and this will just stuff

this completely. Yes, there was

a noise problem and we very

quickly put a group of people

together to lock the ramp and

unlock it everyday and every

night. You didn’t write this at the

start of your article did you? It’s

a shame the media has the power

with no facts of the situation

to portray what is happening in

a community. The ramp needs

to stay! What will the kids do?

At any one day, there are easily

more than 100 kids that use that

ramp. That’s all I have to say.

Erin Baker – For as long as

I can remember, 20 years plus,

there have been attempts to

have a skate park in sumner.

Sumner had always been a community

that attracts young

families to our healthy outdoors

environment. During the

same period, there has always

been complaints by groups or

individuals about the location

of a skate park. It’s time that the

greater good wins out in this

issue. What residents and groups

sometimes fail to understand is

that these various activities of

skateboarding, surfing, biking

etc keep youth active, engaged

and out of trouble. We do not

see Sumner youth out vandalising

or spray painting fences at

night and we don’t see broken

glass and litter strewn through

Sumner each morning. Too long

now we have had individuals

making unsubstantiated statements

about the effect of a skate

park. The last person to make

such a complaint has now set up

a freedom camping free for all

on the corner of the Esplanade

and Marriner St.

Yet another example of

self-serving individualism.

The community board and

council should stop worrying

about ‘keeping their jobs at the

next election’ and get on and

make a decision for the youth of

our community.

Danella Rielly – It’s actually

a fantastic spot as it’s just an

empty lot. I can grab a coffee

next door and watch my kids.

The apartments are next to

restaurants on the main road.

Noise was always going to be a

factor. My four, five and sevenyear-old

get hours of fun from it.

Karen Letchford-Cross –

Kids can’t win . . . skate and they

are ‘purposely causing noise’

or stay inside and the wowsers

whinge about kids spending

all their time on a screen! Look

at Washington Reserve in

Christchurch, loads of skaters

and having fun! Yes, there will

always be some ‘bad element’

but don’t tar all the kids with the

same brush!

Stephanie Hagerty – It’s

a catch 22 really. The kids need

something to do other than

vandalising or creating mayhem

but you want to live in a peaceful

neighbourhood. Perhaps there

could be a shut off time for week

(days) and later on weekends.

Charlotte Anne Dooley

– Would have been much noisier

at night when the Ruptured Duck

(Pizzeria) was there – it’s zoned

commercial so always going to be

noisy – lucky for the residents it’s

only during the daytime! Live in

a residentially-zoned area if you

don’t like it.

Kirsty Rueppell – The skate

ramp is a lot more appealing than

those hideous apartments that

would be more suited to the Gold

Coast. You’ve picked the wrong

crew to do battle with. Sumner

wants/deserves a skate ramp.

Thank you to the team who are

backing this and continue to fight

tirelessly in a voluntary capacity.

Thank you to the locals happily

locking up/unlocking each day.

It’s such a great community to be

a part of. City council is slowly

but surely starting to realise this.

Gavin French – If you’re

going to live in a built up area,

expect noise. Pay for triple

glassed windows to give you

quiet. Stop trying to rule other

people’s lives and get real.

Tiffany Burke – Put a

curfew on it, not sure how it’ll be

enforced, maybe a call to noise

control if people are skating past

the curfew. At least these kids are

outside and active, not glued to a

screen!

Nicola Clark – It’s a healthy

activity for the kids.

Ben Perkins – I lived in

Sumner for like six months and

saw that in use maybe three

times, all in the afternoon. It is

within a 20 second walk from the

coast, where half the tourists in

Christchurch can be found, it’s

literally in the middle of a shopping

centre, and there aren’t even

any houses next to it! It’s in the

carpark of a cafe! Whoever wants

this gone, needs to be gone.

You’re crying about nothing.

Alan Hane – Looks like wood

and plywood no wonder it’s

noisy. Needs to be concrete.

Fleur Chalk – Maybe those

people in the apartment should

give skating a try.

Sam Glassey – Build a

proper skate park? Would do better

than removing it all together.

Chelsea Berry – Can’t the

ramp be moved somewhere?

Maybe extended as compensation

for the inconvenience to the

boarders.

Michael Cochrane

– Pathetic. Probably going to be

moaning about the vandalism

that will no doubt happen to the

apartments when it gets taken

away.

Jess Howie – Always someone

to complain about kids having

fun – my thought was all that

sand ruining your bearings.

Penny Conaghan – Some

people just need something to

complain about.

Timo Costelloe – Tell the

apartment heads to chill out

Leonie Underdown – What

a pity it can’t be solved.

Michael Cook – What a

stupid place for a ramp.

Nikita Woodford – Let them

skate!

Grayson Rae – No way?!

Noise in a busy looking area?! No

way?!

Joanne Parker, Sumner

– In my opinion, I would rather

walk past a skateboard facility for

people my age (46) than

be subject to odd start

up businesses that don’t

last in Sumner and are not

thinking about the health of the

community. The reason people

move to Sumner is because of

the vibrant options for all age

groups, and good community

communication.

This community co-exists

because there is space for

everyone. The Sumner

Community Residents’

Association must continue to

advocate for the community as

this is a special place for all.

Recognition for Lyttelton restaurant

Roots makes

world’s best

fine-dining list

• By Annabelle Dick

DON’T BOTHER trying to

find a menu for Lyttelton

restaurant Roots – it doesn’t

have one.

In spite of that, it still managed

to land a placing on the

prestigious list of the world’s

1000 best eateries, La Liste.

The coveted list is a restaurant

guide compiled from hundreds

of guidebooks and online review

sites of the world’s 1000 top

restaurants.

Eight New Zealand restaurants

made the list and Roots was the

only one outside of Auckland to

make the cut.

It’s an honour for owner and

head chef, Chilean national Giulio

Sturla, who only celebrated

Roots fourth anniversary last

November.

“It’s been such a short period

of time and we’ve achieved so

much already but we’ve just

started,” he said.

“We’re so new we feel we can

do more, so it’s reinforcing that

we’re doing the right thing and

TOP NOSH: Giulio Sturla’s Lyttelton restaurant Roots has been named in La Liste, which ranks

the top 1000 eateries in the world.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

this is pushing us to do go even

further.”

Mr Sturla, who has worked

in restaurants in Mexico, the

United States, Jamaica, Ecuador,

Chile and Spain moved to New

Zealand in 2009 with his wife

Christy Martin.

The pair opened up Roots

in 2012 and created a dining

experience different to most by

removing the menus and relying

heavily on local produce.

“We wanted to do something

completely different people

haven’t seen before,” he said.

With that in mind, he started

creating fresh dishes daily out of

whatever Mother Nature had to

offer.

Nearly five years on, Mr Sturla

still relies on seasonal vegetables

and fresh fish and meat to create

his seasonal five, eight and

12-course dinners.

“People like eating several

courses, with several colours

and textures over a longer

period of time instead of just

one big plate in one sitting,” he

explains.

“I knew people disliked a

lot of foods like seafood and

mushrooms and I wondered how

people could dislike something

that tasted so good,” he said.

“The moment you read something

on a menu, you’ll decide

whether you like it and if you

want to eat it. The moment it’s

on the plate you have a different

appreciation of what you have.

We play a little with people’s

minds to show them that food

they thought they didn’t like can

be good. Trust me, I’m not going

to serve you bad food – I’m a

chef.”

Auckland-based restaurants

The French Cafe, The Grove,

Sidart, Kazuya, Cocoro, Merediths

and Baduzzi also feature

on La Liste.

Ever wanted to fly?

Advertorial

Canterbury Aero Club provides a

wide variety of training and offers a

wealth of experience. As one of the

oldest aero clubs in New Zealand, it’s

the place to go for all things aviation:

from one-off introductory flights, to

private licences and right through to

commercial licences. It is also home to

the International Aviation Academy

of New Zealand, which runs a range

of programmes to train commercial

pilots. Members enjoy free rein of the

club’s premises, which overlooks the

Christchurch Airport runway, and are

given access to club’s planes. Imagine

taking to the skies with the family in

tow!

If you’ve ever had a Top Gun fantasy,

phone Canterbury Aero Club and

book yourself an Introductory Flight

Lesson. For a very reasonable $150,

you will be in the air before you

know it, and have a great

conversation starter for years

to come.

Urban Myth #1

Flying a plane is really

difficult.

Urban Myth #2

It’s really expensive – I need

to be the CEO of Microsoft to

afford that.

Kate Preece tells us about

her experience:

Flying a plane was never

something I thought I could do.

I assumed it was well beyond

my skill level and would send

the budget into a tailspin.

However, I was very wrong.

Canterbury Aero Club takes

the difficulty out of flying. Anyone can

fly a plane, and they’re

quick to let you know

that’s the case. The

qualified team are

experts at banishing

self doubt, and treat

this unfathomable feat

as a walk in the park.

I had no experience in

aviation, yet I taxied a

four-seater plane, took

off, flew out to Banks

Peninsula, and landed.

With an instructor

beside you, there’s

always a safety net, and never an issue.

Taking a flying lesson should be on

everyone’s bucket list. Why? Why not!

-Kate Preece

Becoming a recreational pilot operates

on a ‘pay as you go’ system, so there’s

no big outlay. In fact, a typical flight

will cost you around the same as a

day’s skiing. Kids and partners are

welcome at the club and the facilities

make for a great place to hang out and

be entertained.

The reception is manned seven days

a week by flight instructors who are

more than happy to help with any

questions.

www.cac.co.nz or phone 359 2121.

have time to talk without the pressures of work there are discussions around whether this

is the year to shift house, move into a particular school zone, trade up or trade down as

your particular needs change, maybe look at buying an investment property or perhaps you

have a job transfer looming. Whatever your reasons for change are this is the time of year where

we see the most activity in the market.

So with that in mind we suggest you make contact with your real estate agent early. Our team is back on board and

currently taking property bookings for our February and March Auction and Deadline Sale campaigns. We have a

number of marketing packages available that may suit your property or we can design an exclusive campaign tailor

made just for your property. Call any one of our team today to talk it through.

Water Safety Tips

Our newest agent, and long time surf lifesaver Eddie Spry

is passionate about water safety. Here he shares his tips

on rips, one of the biggest dangers at the beach; a strong

current of water running out to sea.

Take two minutes today to brush up on how to identity a

rip, and what to do if you get caught in one:

Features of a rip:

1. Discoloured or murky water caused by stirred up sand

2. A smoother surface with much smaller waves, larger

waves breaking on either side

3. Debris floating out to sea

4. A rippled look, when the water around is generally

calm

If you get caught in a rip:

1. Try not to panic

2. Don’t try to swim against the rip back to shore

3. Let the rip caryy you out until the current subsides

4. Then swim parallel to the beach for 30-40m before you

swim back to shore

Protester bowling along at 100

• By Caitlin Miles

TURNING 100 wasn’t going

to stop Jean Thompson playing

indoor bowls with friends and

family on Friday.

Mrs Thompson lives at Edith

Cavell Lifecare in Sumner and

celebrated her birthday playing

bowls and folk dancing.

Over the decades Mrs Thompson

has been a lifelong advocate

for peace and has never shirked

from protesting against what she

believed in, including the 1981

Springbok tour when she was in

her mid-60s.

“One time we were sitting

protesting the war (World War

2) and I refused to move, then

a police officer came along

and told me to move, I think

I did quickly after that,” Mrs

Thompson said.

Protesting against the war was

not the fashionable thing to do

in the 1940s, but that didn’t stop

Mrs Thompson.

That attitude changed with the

Vietnam War in the late 1960s

and early 70s, when her late

husband Noel also joined in the

protest.

She also campaigned to keep

New Zealand nuclear free.

“It was always important to

stand for peace,” she said.

Her daughter, Janet Thompson,

told Bay Harbour News it was

amazing that she was so strong

in her views as a young female

during World War 2.

“For her to stand up like that

it was pretty incredible,” Janet

Thompson said.

Mrs Thompson was 17 when

he met her husband, Noel, she

was short at 1.5m tall, while Noel

was much taller.

“My father used to laugh

because she had to stand on a

step to be able to kiss him good

night,” she said.

Mrs Thompson trained as a

teacher, working in Woolston

before she had three children,

Tom, Bruce and Janet.

Now she has turned 100, Mrs

Thompson still insists on enjoying

the sunshine when she can,

enjoying the warmth on her face,

she said.

STILL PLAYING: Jean Thompson’s 100 birthday celebrations

included her competitive streak coming out to play lawn

Yulia to sing live at Ferrymead

• By Bridget Rutherford

WHEN YULIA’S mother

passed away last year, the

musician never thought she

would sing again.

She said it broke her into a

million pieces.

But now, the multi-platinum,

best-selling artist is about to

record her new album in front

of a live audience in Ferrymead.

It will be her first major work

in New Zealand for 10 years because

she took a break to have

her two children.

The album will be recorded in

front of a live audience in two

sessions at Ferrymead’s Orange

Studios on February 3 and 4.

A hundred tickets will be

available for the two sessions.

“The exclusivity of this event

is comparable to an experience

of Bluff oysters – available to a

select few, first in, first served,”

she said.

The new album, which

follows Into the West and Montage,

will feature five of Yulia’s

original songs. as well as covers

of Lionel Richie and Leonard

Cohen.

She will be joined by guitarist

Hanafi Machirus, Michael

Russell on the trumpet, and

Michael Story on the bass.

Peter Rattray, who recorded

NEW: Yulia will record her new album in front of a live studio next week, which will be her first

major work in a decade.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Yulia’s first self-produced album

while she was at school, will

master this one.

She said it would be different

to her previous music, but

thought her fans would like it.

“They are going to come out

and think years down the track,

I may not remember what she

sang, or what she said, but I

will always remember how she

made me feel.”

Yulia said the concerts would

be in part dedicated to her

mother, Galina, who died of

cancer in July.

“I feel it everyday.”

The five songs in the new

album were among about 12 she

wrote in November 2015.

She said it took about two

weeks to write all of them,

which were triggered when she

returned to Christchurch and

reunited with family.

Yulia was born in Russia and

emigrated to Christchurch with

her mother in 2002.

At 18-years-old she landed a

deal with Sony before becoming

the first female vocalist in the

country to have two back-toback

Agriculture provides a second

AT THE end of its first year,

19 people on community

sentences with the Department

of Corrections have become

the first to graduate from a

new agricultural skills training

programme.

They leave with qualifications

– and the chance to change their

lives. The ongoing project is a

partnership between Lincoln

University, Port Levy’s Koukourarata

Marae and Community

Corrections. It is intended to deliver

practical horticultural skills

with a focus on tikanga (Maori

way of doing things).

Corrections Canterbury lead

service manager Katey Gibling

said the intention was for offenders

to reconnect with the land

while gaining skills for employment

and a taste for achievement

and further training.

“Many of those we work with

are drifting, their lives have

become chaotic and without

purpose. Through this partnership,

and projects like this, we

help them to reconnect with their

culture and find a way forward,”

she said.

“Lincoln provide the qualification

and having them involved

has helped the offenders see

that this is a real qualification

and they are very capable of

doing something they had never

thought possible for them.”

The 12 graduates were presented

with certificates recognising

proficiency in chainsaw operation,

quad-bike driving, tractor

driving and the use of farming

implements.

For Brent, the first graduate of

the course, the programme has

been truly life changing.

“This programme was critical

to me getting the confidence to

have a go and get back in charge

of my life,” he said.

Last year, Brent was studying

horticulture, then when things

‘got stressful,’ he started to drink

heavily and found himself on a

community work sentence with a

drink driving conviction.

“When I committed my offences,

I wasn’t thinking ahead.

I was dealing with alcohol and

anxiety issues. I was losing my

friends, failing my studies. I was

in a dark place and ended up on

a community work sentence,” he

said.

“This programme was the first

big mental shift for me. I started

to plan forward again.

“I did the chainsaw course

thinking that it could make me

more employable and I thought

the quad bike training could also

lead to something. It gave me the

confidence to try again. I had

gained these skills and thought, ‘I

can do this’.”

Brent said that in addition to

starting to learn again, it was

the mentoring support of the

community work supervisor who

helped him see opportunity.

The project’s community

work supervisor Reuben Gent

said the partnership offered

new opportunities for people on

community work sentences to

access skills and qualifications

for employment. The tikanga

element helped offenders

reconnect with Maori principals

and culture.

“In addition to practical skills

and work aptitudes, the offenders

on the programme are gaining

confidence and the personal

skills and motivation to move on

with their lives,” Mr Gent said.

FISHERMAN’S

WHARF

“Working alongside each

other provides time and opportunity

to talk about what

is going on in people’s lives.

Projects like this work at many

levels,” Mr Gent said.

Koukourarata Marae representative

Manaia Cunningham

said he was very proud

of the way the project was

progressing and the difference

it was making in the lives of

the people working on it.

“As a marae we are thrilled

to support our community

service whanau and we are

here to support each other,”

Mr Cunningham said.

“This education programme

has a Maori education framework

that ensures everyone’s

whakapapa is respected.”

For some of those in the project,

they will find the confidence

and passion to continue

their studies in a related field,

for example, horticulture or

forestry at Lincoln University.

Bill Martin, manager of the

biological husbandry unit, is

the university’s delivery partner

in the partnership.

“This programme delivers

skills that growers want,” Mr

Martin said.

“The people graduating from

STUCK IN: People on community sentences with

Corrections have been learning new agricultural skills,

such as proficiency with a chainsaw.

this programme have certificates

of proficiency in useful

skills.”

The programme offers a way

to engage in the community

and partner in the Koukourarata

gardens. While the

initial programme was about

rebuilding and shaping lives,

the partnership has taken a

new turn with the BHU engaging

in a two-year research

project to develop commercial

seed lines of organic taewa, or

Maori potatoes, and ensure

their availability into the

future.

“Through this project, we

will enable Koukourarata to

develop commercial scale

production of organic taewa,”

Mr Martin said.

The tikanga element of

the programme also sat well

with the university’s whenua

strategy and recognition of the

importance of engaging with

Maori and Pasifika and the

land.

“Between the three partners

we bring commitment, tikanga,

the labour, the science and

the will to make a difference to

the future of this food source

which is culturally significant

to New Zealand, and especially

to iwi,” Mr Martin said.

“We are helping people

reconnect with the earth,

traditional planting and horticultural

methods. It’s not just

seeds we are growing. It’s ideas

and futures.”

As for Brent, he felt very

positive about his future. He

had returned to Lincoln to

study landscape architecture

and had completed and passed

his first two papers.

“I stuffed up so much for so

long. I needed this, but I didn’t

know I needed it. It seems

strange to say, but it has been

a really important experience

for me,” he said.

“My sentence gave me purpose.

I came home feeling engaged

and positive again. Since

I have been on sentence, my

whole life has turned around

and Corrections has been a big

part of this.”

Rapaki Rd parking plan stalls

• By Caitlin Miles

A PLAN to ban parking on busy

Rapaki Rd has been put on hold

due to nearby residents’ concerns of

the impact on surrounding streets.

The road is the main access route

to Rapaki Track, which is popular

with walkers, runners and mountain

bikers – causing issues for

people who live on Rapaki Rd.

In November, the city council

proposed banning parking on

Rapaki Rd due to ongoing concern

from residents about safely accessing

the street and their driveways.

A parking ban on one side of

Erewhon Tce was also included in

the plan, because cars

are often parked on that

street if Rapaki Rd is full.

The proposal was meant

to go to the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community

Board next month for

approval, but that will be

put on hold.

Following the submissions

received, city council acting

head of transport Steffan Thomas

said the project has been put on

hold due to concerns raised over

how the surrounding roads will be

effected by the ban.

The city council received 93 submissions

on the plans, 66 supported

the idea, 24 were against and three

submissions were unclear.

Thirty of those submissions, both

for and against the parking restrictions,

were concerned over the

impact on the surrounding streets,

namely Vernon Tce.

One submitter opposed the plans

because Vernon Tce is “already

dangerously congested” and banning

parking on Rapaki Rd will

only add to the congestion.

A Vernon Tce resident said they

were “terrified that restrictions

proposed on Rapaki Rd will have

an extremely detrimental effect on

traffic, congestion, parking and

safety on Vernon Tce,” and opposed

the parking ban unless more parking

is provided elsewhere.

“As a result, the project

has been put on hold temporarily

to consider whether

any additional parking

controls should be proposed

further afield,” Mr Thomas

said.

City councillor Tim Scandrett

(left) said Vernon Tce

residents had a right to be

concerned.

“The ideas raised in the submissions

were very good ones and we

do need to look at the plan again

and see what we can do,” Cr Scandrett

said.

Mr Thomas said the next step

of the project will be to undertake

further consultation with affected

properties if changes are made to

the plan.

CONGESTED: The city council will reconsider a parking ban on busy Rapaki Rd until a

solution can be found.

so that you get a good look around and see where you may

want to go back to! It depends how much time you have but

I think a good 10-15 day tour that takes in the Eiffel tower and

Explore Sumner’s treasure

trove of pre-loved fashions

The holidays might be over, but there is still

plenty of summer to enjoy so why not boost

your summer wardrobe with quality preloved

clothes from Time & Time Again in

Sumner. This fascinating shop is always full of

surprises – with an ever-changing selection of

clothing for men and women and for children

from newborn to 14 years.

The business has been run by owner Ali for

two years now and she and her staff have a

strong sense of current fashion trends and

are happy to give their opinion and advice if

customers would like it.

“The atmosphere is very relaxed and we

like our customers to have fun while they’re

shopping – there’s no pressure to buy,” Ali

says.

Clothing ranges in sizes from 4-24, and all

the pre-loved clothing is of excellent quality.

Everything from everyday gear to retro

looks, designer brands to glamorous special

occasion wear can be found on the constantly

changing racks, with people supplying the

shop coming not just from Christchurch,

but also as far afield as Auckland, Blenheim

and the West Coast. Items bought in highend

stores overseas can also be found in this

treasure trove of fashion.

There is also an eclectic range of accessories

including shoes and sandals, boots, new and

pre-owned jewellery and new sunglasses.

“Tassel jewellery is a strong fashion item

this summer and we have the full range of

colours in the My Tassel range of jewellery,

which is brand-new and comes from

Kaikoura – we like to support New Zealand

designers,” Ali says.

The range of sunglasses includes the brand,

Happy to Sit on Your Face, and a wide choice

of replica branded sunglasses.

Time & Time Again also sells through

Trade Me and Facebook so they get the most

they can for the seller and the best deal for

the customer.

The income from the sale of clothing is

split 50/50 between the owner of the clothing

and Time & Time Again. Items that don’t sell

quickly are marked down, so there are always

bargains to be had, especially on the $5 rack.

Clothing that doesn’t sell within six weeks is

donated to charity organisations such as St

Vincent de Paul.

Time & Time Again, in the Village Mall,

Sumner, is open Monday to Thursday

9.30am-5.30pm, Friday 9.30am-6pm,

Saturday & Sunday 10am-5pm. Phone 326-

Principal

surprised

with signage

• By Caitlin Miles

SIGNS WARNING motorists of

St Anne’s Catholic School have

been installed on Ferry Rd.

The signs come after Southern

View highlighted concerns the

school had over pupil safety on

the busy road in Woolston.

School principal Dallas

Wichman said while he was

happy the signs had been

installed, 40km/h speed

limits still needed to be put in

urgently.

“The signs are good but after

a while people will forget about

them, at least something that is

flashing will get more attention

for just 10 minutes and that’s

what we need,” Mr Wichman

(left) said.

During the holidays, the city

council installed four school

signs at a cost of $1200.

City council acting head of

transport, Steffan Thomas, said

they were installed to make

people aware they are near a

school and children are about.

Mr Wichman said he didn’t

know the signs were going in.

He said he arrived at the school

and saw them there.

RIBBON CUTTING: Eric Devos and Janice Thornton (the cafe

managers), Paula Jameson, Lianne Dalziel and Jill Simmonds

(the granddaughter of original builder Charles Calvert) cut the

ribbon opening the cafe and historic building.

Sign of Kiwi back in business

AFTER NEARLY six years,

the Sign of the Kiwi reopened

on Monday.

The building at the top of

Dyers Pass Rd was closed following

the September 4, 2010,

earthquake. It suffered further

damage on February 22, 2011.

Before it was closed, it had a cafe

and shop.

More than $900,000 of work

was done strengthening the

building to 67 per cent of the

new building standard.

The Sign of the Takahe,

another protected heritage

building, was also closed for

repair work following the

February 2011 earthquake.

Repair work on the building

began in 2015 and it is set to

open next month.

City council heritage rebuild

programme manager Richie

Moyle said the Sign of the Kiwi

building was a piece of “old

world heritage.”

“The Sign of the Kiwi is a

treasure of national significance,”

he said.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said it

was wonderful to see the building

reopen.

“Many who grew up in

Christchurch will have their

own memories of the Sign of the

Kiwi. A hundred years since it

was first built, it’s wonderful to

be able to welcome the Sign of

the Kiwi back,” Ms Dalziel said.

The Category 1 listed heritage

building was built in 1916 and

1917.

During its restoration and

repair work, contractors found

song lyrics scrawled on the

roof from an Eileen Barton

song, which was released in

the 1950s.

The message read: “If we had

of known you were coming we’d

of baked a cake (sic).”

City council heritage adviser

Gareth Wright said it was

likely the message was written

by tradespeople when they battened

the roof of the Sign of the

Kiwi in the 1950s.

Cashmere Ward city councillor

Tim Scandrett said it will be

exciting to have the cafe open

again so locals and visitors can

take in the views.

“It will be great to be able to sit

up there, enjoy an ice cream and

the weather, and just look at one

of the best views in Canterbury,”

Cr Scandrett said.

TWO LOCAL girls rank

among the top BMX riders

in the South Island after

strong results at a recent

meeting.

Moncks Bay’s Hollie

Tribble, 6, has only been

competing on her BMX

for 12 months, and is

ranked third in the South

Island in the UCI 7 class.

Meanwhile, Mt Pleasant’s

Juliet Freeman, 9, is ranked

third in the UCI 10 class.

Hollie and Juliet’s

rankings were gained in

the South Island BMX

champs on January 14 to

15 at the North Avon BMX

Club in Bexley Reserve.

Sumner’s Blake Steensen,

10, also competed in the

event and gained a ranking

of 12th in the UCI 11 class,

while Noah Cole, 9, also of

Sumner, is ranked fourth

in the UCI 10 class.

The riders’ rankings

allow them to compete

at the national

championships in Te

Awamutu in April.

If they qualify in the top

16 in their age group at the

national event, they will be

eligible to enter the BMX

World Championships.

Christina Freeman

said it was great to

girls getting out and

“It was awesome to have

Hollie’s mother, Hayley

As from today, people shopping and

working in the Ferrymead area have a

new choice for fresh takeaway food with

the opening of the popular Pita Pit.

The outlet is located in the recently

completed complex at 987 Ferry Road,

and joins neighbouring businesses

Bayleys, House of Travel, ANZ bank,

ASB bank and Flight Centre. The

complex is adjacent to the Mitre 10

Mega drive-through.

Simon Scott, one of the franchisees that

have launched the business, says Pita

Pit, which was established in Canada,

has grown exponentially in New Zealand

over the last five or so years. This will

be the 11th Pita Pit in Christchurch, the

19th in the South Island, and one of 102

across the country.

“When the opportunity arose to set up in

Ferrymead we saw it as an ideal location

for Pita Pit, due to the significant growth

taking place there and also there are

very few Pita Pits on the eastern side of

the city,” Simon says. “The nearest ones

are at The Palms and South City.”

ADVERTORIAL

High-profile takeaway opens in Ferrymead

They are also confident it will be warmly

welcomed.

“Brand awareness of Pita Pit has risen

steadily since the first stores opened in

2010, so it’s now well known and well

patronised. We believe the people from

Ferrymead and the surrounding areas

will be very glad that it has finally arrived

in the area.”

Simon attributes the popularity of Pita Pit

Steel mesh class action lawsuit looms

• By Tom Doudney

ABOUT 3000 Canterbury

homeowners have been sent letters

inviting them to join a class action

lawsuit against three companies

which allegedly supplied substandard

steel mesh.

Auckland firm Adina Thorn

Lawyers has proposed taking the

lawsuit against the companies

which are also set to be prosecuted

by the Commerce Commission

this year under the Fair

Trading Act.

The steel mesh, alleged to be

below the national building

standard, is typically used in

concrete slab foundations and

driveways.

The letter stated that if the

companies were found guilty in

the Commerce Commission’s

prosecution they would face

fines but this was “very unlikely”

to deliver financial compensation

to affected home owners.

“Unless the owners of affected

properties take legal action, they

will likely face losses in terms of

resale values, as well as possible

complications with insurance

claims in the event of an earthquake,”

it said.

The three companies were not

named by the Commerce Commission

but one, Steel & Tube,

chose to identify itself. Steel &

SAFETY ISSUE: About 3000 Canterbury homeowners have

received letters inviting them to take part in a class action

lawsuit over sub-standard steel mesh allegedly being used in

their homes.

Tube has said the commission’s

decision in relation to itself was

about the application of testing

methodologies and mistaken use

of a testing laboratories logo on

test certificates, not the performance

characteristics

of its seismic

mesh.

Adina Thorn

Lawyers senior

associate Richard

Hart (left) said

homes which received

the letters had been chosen

based on having had a building

consent issued during the four

years that the non-complying

mesh was being supplied. He

acknowledged the firm did not

know whether it had been used in

any of the specific homes it sent

letters to.

The 3000 was just a subset of

potentially affected homes with

the total number “too difficult to

obtain at this stage,” Mr Hart said.

“This is a potentially serious

problem, we don’t want to alarm

people but on the other hand

it’s an opportunity for people to

perhaps find out a bit more and

find out whether or not [joining

the lawsuit] is worthwhile.”

Letters had been sent to new

Auckland subdivisions as well but

Mr Hart said Canterbury had the

potential to be worse affected due

to the possibility of future seismic

activity in the region.

Steel & Tube communications

manager Tanya Katterns said

Adina Thorn had not provided

information to support its claims

that resale values and insurance

claims could be affected.

“We believe our seismic mesh

ensures building safety,” she said.

Last year Ministry of Business

Innovation and Employment

general manager building system

performance Derek Baxter said

he was not concerned that the

mesh posed a safety risk for

newly-built houses and was confident

they would still comply

with the Building Code.

The Structural Engineering

Society has also said homeowners

should not be unnecessarily

concerned about the steel mesh

in their houses.

The city council referred questions

from The Star to the Commerce

Commission. A spokeswoman

for the commission said

it did not wish to comment on

the class action.

Driven

Optima tempts in shrinking market

• By Ross Kiddie

ELEGANCE, STYLE and

performance don’t always go

hand-in-hand in motor vehicle

manufacture.

But Korea’s Kia Corporation

has certainly done that with the

new mid-to-large sedan, the

Optima. Well, when I say new,

the Optima is mostly all new, it

has a new chassis and it is bigger

than before, but it looks little

different, it still has the same

sleek body style, and the latest

iteration builds on those values

I’ve just mentioned.

The Optima reeks of flair and

fashion, it sits low and it has a

body style that oozes desire, that

element is also carried over to the

interior, the entire car has had a

refresh with a renewed emphasis

on quality trim and materials.

There is little difference in price

either, in fact it could well be

cheaper than the outgoing model

depending on specification.

Limited specification comes

in at $48,990; for that money

the Optima comes well specced,

major features include satellite

navigation, radar cruise control,

full leather trim with heated

front seats with electric seat

adjustment, heated steering wheel

and paddle shift gearbox.

KIA OPTIMA LTD: Design flair oozes desire.

It’s fair to say, though, the

evaluation car was top spec, an

EX variant sits $3200 below that

and it would probably be my

choice given it doesn’t miss out

on much and it has cloth trim

which is my preference.

All that aside, both variants

get a 2.4-litre petrol engine. It’s

not a new unit, but I wouldn’t

be at all surprised if has had a

bit of a makeover in terms of

refinement, such is the quiet and

sophisticated way the Optima

drives, the engine is a major part

of the hushed way in which the

car travels. And as I eluded to in

my introduction, the Optima isn’t

short on performance.

Rated at 138kW and 241Nm,

the twin-camshaft, 16-valve

unit has plenty of urge. It drives

through the low and close ratios

of a six-speed automatic gearbox,

together the driveline promotes

swift acceleration and easy

momentum when it reaches the

driver’s desired speed.

It’s hard to detect how hard the

engine is working, for a big block

four-cylinder it is uncannily

subdued, and even under

acceleration sound is well isolated

from the cabin.

Unfortunately, my testing time

was cut a little short, an engine

maintenance warning light

flicked up on the dash during the

time the test car was in my care,

so I was very circumspect as to

how I drove the car, and how far.

That aside, the engine has a lot

of usable torque through the mid

range which means it is happy

slugging it out in the areas where

fuel use is minimised.

Kia claims an 8.3-litre per

100km (34mpg) combined cycle

average for the Optima and that

figure is quite realistic, during

my time with the test car the fuel

usage readout was constantly

listing around 9l/100km (31mpg)

along with a 6l/100km (47mpg)

figure available instantaneously

at 100km/h (engine speed

1700rpm).

The Optima cruises beautifully,

it has a plush ride and sound is

deadened. Kia has utilised a fully

independent, front stunt/rear

multiple link set-up. I like these

arrangements, the rear wheels

have freedom and springs and

shocks are allowed to do their job

unimpeded. Mid-corner bumps

are dealt to without deviation

off-line, while at the other end

steerage is direct and turn-in is

accurate.

Riding on high quality

• Price – Kia Optima Ltd,

$48,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4855mm; width, 1860mm;

height, 1465mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

2359cc, 138kW, 241Nm,

six-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage – 8.3l/100km

Michelin Pilot rubber (235/45

x 18in), the sport specification

tyres have strong grip properties

along with little sound. They are

also partly responsible for the

strong steering feel, the driver is

fully involved with the handling

process.

Creating a new car and

building on the success of its

predecessor is a complicated

and difficult process, but Kia has

always done that well, and the

Optima is a good example of how

sophisticated the modern sedan

has come to be.

It’s just a pity that the sedan

market in languishing in an

age where a buyer’s first choice

is generally a sport utility

vehicle.

Good cars like the Optima

deserve to do better.

Major roadworks on the

Russley Road/Memorial Avenue

intersection

Major roadworks will be carried out on the

Russley Road/Memorial Avenue temporary roundabout from

7pm, Friday 27 January until 6am, Monday 30 January.

20 minutes.

People travelling to Christchurch International

Airport should allow plenty of extra travel time.

The work to reconstruct the road through the

intersection is part of the State Highway 1

Russley Road Upgrade.

The project is progressing well and is expected to

be finished in 2018.

Miss Treadway & the Field of Stars

by Miranda Emmerson

How do you find a missing actress in a city where everyone’s

playing a role?

A mystery, a love-story and a darkly beguiling tale of secrets and

reinvention set in 1960s London. Soho, 1965.

In a tiny two-bed flat above a Turkish café on Neal Street lives

Anna Treadway, a young dresser at the Galaxy Theatre.

When the American actress Iolanthe Green disappears after an

evening’s performance at the Galaxy, the newspapers are wild with

speculation about her fate.

But as the news grows old and the case grows colder, it seems Anna is the only

person left determined to find out the truth.

Her search for the missing actress will take her into an England she did not know existed: an

England of jazz clubs and prison cells, backstreet doctors and seaside ghost towns, where

her carefully calibrated existence will be upended by violence but also, perhaps, by love.

For in order to uncover Iolanthe’s secrets, Anna is going to have to face up to a few of her

own...

Hidden Figures: The Untold Story of the

African American Women Who Helped

Win the Space Race

by Margot Lee Shetterly

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE. New York Times Bestseller. Set amid the civil

rights movement, the never-before-told true story of NASA’s African-American female

mathematicians who played a crucial role in America’s space program. Before Neil

Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of professionals worked as ‘Human Computers’,

calculating the flight paths that would enable these historic achievements. Among these

were a coterie of bright, talented African-American women. Segregated from their white

counterparts, these ‘coloured computers’ used pencil and paper to write the equations that

would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. Moving from World War II through NASA’s

golden age, touching on the civil rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the women’s

rights movement, ‘Hidden Figures’ interweaves a rich history of mankind’s greatest adventure

with the intimate stories of five courageous women whose work forever changed the world.

Stretch

your way back to it

As we return to our normal daily routines after the holidays you

may begin to find the odd ache or pain creeping in.

This is a good indicator from our

bodies, that the holiday routine

was somewhat different. Perhaps

you sit a lot for work and you

were on the go or, you are normally more

active and the holiday break was more

sedentary. Either way the sooner you pay

attention to these signals the easier it will

be to deal with it.

So what can you do to ward off pain

and stiffness and boost your energy and

alertness? 10 simple stretching exercises

at your desk that will release tension from

head to toe. They take only a few minutes.

Set the alarm on your cell phone or

computer to go off every hour to remind

you it’s time to get up and stretch.

Just stand up and sit down - no hands

If you stand up and sit down (over and

over) without using your hands it can be a

challenge, do it while you’re on the phone;

no one will know.

Shrug your shoulders - to release the neck and shoulders

Inhale deeply and shrug your shoulders,

lifting them high up to your ears. Hold.

Release and drop. Repeat three times.

Loosen the hands with air circles

Clench both fists, stretching both hands

out in front of you.

Make circles in the air, first in one direction,

to the count of ten. Then reverse the circles.

Shake out the hands.

Point your fingers - good for hands, wrist, and forearms

Stretch your left hand out in front of you,

pointing fingers toward the floor. Use your

right hand to increase the stretch, pushing

your fingers down and toward the body.

Be gentle do the same with the other hand.

Now stretch your left hand out straight

in front, wrist bent, with fingers pointing

skyward. Use your right hand to increase

the stretch, pulling the fingers back toward

your body. Do the same on the other side.

Release the upper body with a torso twist

Inhale and as you exhale, turn to the right

and grab the back of your chair with your

right hand, and grab the arm of the chair

with your left. With eyes level, use your

grasp on the chair to help twist your torso

around as far to the back of the room as

possible. Hold the twist and let your eyes

continue the stretch see how far around

the room you can peer. Slowly come back

to facing forward. Repeat on the other side.

Do leg extensions

Grab the seat of your chair to brace yourself

and extend your legs straight out in front of

you so they are parallel to the floor.Flex and

point your toes five times. Release. Repeat.

Stretch your back with a “big hug”

Hug your body, placing the right hand on

your left shoulder and the left hand on your

right shoulder. Breathe in and out, releasing

the area between your shoulder blades.

Cross your arms - for the shoulders and upper back

Extend one arm out straight in front of you.

With the other hand, grab the elbow of the

outstretched arm and pull it across your

chest, stretching your shoulder and upper

back muscles. Hold. Release. Stretch out the

other arm in front of you - repeat.

Stretch your back and shoulders with a “leg hug”

Sit on the edge of your chair (if it has

wheels, wedge the chair against the desk or

wall to make sure it does not roll). Put your

feet together, flat on the floor.

Lean over, chest to knees, letting your arms

dangle loosely to the floor. Release your

neck. Now bring your hands behind your

legs, right hand grasping left wrist, forearm

(or elbow if you can reach that far), left hand

grasping the right. Feel the stretch in your

back, shoulders and neck. Hold. Release

your hands to the floor again. Repeat three

times or as often as it feels good.

Look up to release upper body

Sit up tall in your chair, or stand up. Stretch

your arms overhead and interlock your

fingers. Turn the palms to the ceiling as

you lift your chin up, tilt your head back,

and gaze up at the ceiling, too. Inhale,

exhale, release.

REAL ESTATE

A Golden Opportunity

125 Main Road, Governors Bay

From $700,000

3 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom | 2 Car Garaging | 2023m 2 section - Listing No. 3502

NOTE: The owners have just had a subdivision report completed by a Registered

Survey Company, a Geotechnical Report completed by Registered Consulting

Engineers and a subdivision application has been submitted to council. This is

currently in the approval process and applies for two separate titles to be issued for

the property. Title 1 - House on 1023m 2 and Title 2 - Separate section of 1000m 2 .

On a 2023m 2 section which occupies a prime position right in the heart of the bay. Enjoy

the space and the stunning harbour / hill views. Last on the market in 1948, this was home

to one of our much loved local identities. The comfortable family home offers three double

bedrooms and open plan living opening to wrap-around verandah. You will be super cosy

in winter with the Kent Duo wood-burner and heat-pump, plus a still operational “chippy”

in the kitchen. There is easy, sealed access to a detached double garage plus a single

carport and woodshed. This is a golden opportunity to own a good chunk of the bay right

at its centre. Spread out and keep the whole half acre (2023m 2 )for yourself, develop into

a beautiful garden or just keep as real country space for the kids to romp. For a gardener

it is a blank canvas, an additional way to enhance the future value of this property.

For a private viewing, please contact Min of Min Sarginson Real Estate (Licensed

Agent REAA 2008), phone 027 432 0327 or 329 4161.

Properties in this location are tightly held and are rarely becoming available and it is almost impossible

to find an original character home let alone on Sumner’s waterfront. Positioned right opposite Cave Rock,

Scarborough and Sumner Beaches and boasting one of the few homes on the Esplanade with rear access and

views in both directions. Views encapsulate Scarborough Heads sweeping over Sumner Beach and right along

the coastline to the Kaikoura Ranges and the Southern Alps. Built 100 years ago when craftsmanship

was valued this graceful character home has great street appeal, good bones and untapped potential.
