Following the June 13, 2011, earthquake, Lyttelton Timeball Station was dismantled due to the damage. Work on rebuilding the tower and flagpole was meant to start in June last year. However, it was put on hold due to other work near the site. Heritage New Zealand decided to put the work on hold so significant earthquake repair road works on Sumner Rd and Reserve Tce could be carried out by the Stronger Christchurch Ken Maynard Infrastructure Rebuild Team. With the road works going on, it made it difficult for workers to access the Timeball site to carry out repair work. Now that the road works have been completed, work on the project can start. At the time, residents were worried about how long the project would be put on hold. Lyttelton Community Association chairman Ken Maynard said it was great news to have the rebuild going ahead. •Turn to page 4 REBUILD PLANNED: Work on restoring the tower and flagpole is expected to begin in July after it was delayed last year. ​ The Village Inn 41B Nayland Street, Sumner 326 – 6973 Tuesday — Sunday THIRSTY T HURSDAY Happy Hour 4-7pm Gourmet Burgers from 5pm FRIDAY Pizzas for $25 5-8pm
