An early swim was the only refreshment before the participants competed in a 40km cycle and 10km run. Leilani Gilford (left) and Nick Rush both finished first in their age categories. •More photos, p12, p13 • By Noah Graham THE controversial Sumner skate ramp will be locked up and out of use from Friday after it failed city council sound level tests last week. Sound level readings were conducted on the half pipe last week which showed the Wakefield Ave facility did not comply with the city plan noise standards during the day or night. Following the failed noise tests, the council is reviewing the legality of the site and have ordered it to be closed and moved by Friday if noise levels cannot be reduced. However, Sumner Green and Skate Group member Kimberley Mossman said the skate ramp would be locked for good tomorrow night after the community have given it a “last hurrah,” which everyone is welcome to attend. She said rather than spending the money now to work with the council and soundproof the skate ramp, they would instead close the park, relocate it and work on it at the new site. •Turn to page 5 Estate/Downsizing Specialists Teamwork from the ‘Team that Works’ 20 Hours Free for 3 & 4 yrs old Three age specific rooms plus School prep Teaching room For full information please visit our website Come in for a visit and experience the difference Ross Cooper, Kane Cooper & Renee Moore 21 Humphreys Drive, Ferrymead Phone (03) 3844 179 Prier Manson Real Estate Ltd Licensed (REAA 2008) Ph 03 384 9249 108 Port hills Rd, heathcote Valley Lyttelton Tunnel Ferrymead Heritage Park Port Hills Rd Tunnel Rd We are here Bridle Path Rd Martindales Rd
