THE NEED for redundancies and

reduced hours to keep the Lyttelton

Community House Trust operational

has upset staff.

Due to a lack of funding, the trust,

located at 7 Dublin St in Lyttelton,

has had to cut two staff members and

reduce its hours to keep running.

Former trust chairman Gary

Manch said it was “really upsetting”

news for the trust.

“A lot of people put work into it,

funding is a big issue . . . it’s terrible,”

Mr Manch said.

He stepped down as chairman last

week.

He said being the chairman was a

hard job, and constantly worrying

about funding was stressful.

The trust’s office faced complete

closure, but by reducing hours and

cutting staff it has managed to remain

open, although it wasn’t an easy

decision to make.

Mr Manch said he had received

feedback from members of the

community who were disappointed

to hear about the reduced hours, but

he said people had not helped to keep

the service running.

“Non-government funded

organisations really rely on funding,

you have to pay the rent, running

the kitchen, staff and all of that,” he

said.

Trust staff will be working to ensure

people using the service still get

the support they need, meals for the

elderly and vulnerable will continue

and a trained social worker will still

be employed to assist people in the

community.

The trust will work on reduced

hours from May 31.

FROM

THE

REPORTER’S

DESK

SOME SAD news on the front

page this week. A well-known

community service has cut staff

and been forced to reduce its

hours due to a lack of funding.

It’s crucial these organisations

get funding to be able to

continue offering support and

services within the community.

On a positive note, the community

has embraced hunting

out red volcanic rock to resurface

retaining walls in Lyttelton.

On page 5, the city council

had an overwhelming response

from the community, collecting

more rocks than initially

needed.

If you still have some of the

red rock on your property, let

the city council know.

The Ferrymead Bays under-17

team suffered a loss via penalty

shoot out at one of the country’s

top youth football tournaments.

Cave could be closed

• By Caitlin Miles

MONCKS CAVE in Redcliffs

could be permanently fenced off

from the public.

The city council is proposing

safety fencing around the cave

and landscaping enhancements

in the reserve around the cave

but the possibility of permanent

closure has some residents

concerned.

The cave, in Moncks Cave

Reserve on the corner of Main

Rd and Cave Tce in Redcliffs

has been closed from the public

since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake due to risk of collapse

or rock fall.

Redcliffs Residents’ Association

secretary Pat McIntosh said

the cave is significant for the

area and she wanted more information

on its stability before

a decision was made to fence it

off.

Moncks Cave is of cultural

significance on account of the

collection of taonga (treasure)

Maori discovered there in 1889.

City council staff have

planned a meeting with interested

parties tonight at 5.30pm

to discuss what the city council

is proposing to do to the cave

and surrounding area.

OVERGROWN: The city

council is considering

landscaping options at

Moncks Cave Reserve as

well as shutting the cave off

from the public.

Dr McIntosh said she hopes

the landscaping will be done

in the reserve but she wanted

more information on why the

cave should be fenced off before

the city council makes a decision.​

“If it needs to be fenced off

for safety then that’s fine, but if

not then make it avaliable to the

public,” Dr McIntosh said.

City council staff have

planned a meeting with interested

parties tonight at 5.30pm

to discuss what could happen to

the cave.

In Brief

TOY LIBRARY GETS GRANT

THe Little River Toy Library has

been given a grant towards lining

and putting insulation throughout

the building. The Banks Peninsula

Community approved a grant of

$1500 to the Royal New Zealand

Plunket Society Canterbury Area

to help cover the costs of work on

the building in Okuti Valley.

SWIMMING FUNDS

Duvauchelle School has been

granted funding to continue

providing swimming lessons

for the children. The Banks

Peninsula Community Board

approved $1500 worth of funding

to the school’s board of trustees

towards swimming and water

safety lessons for pupils and to

contribute to its upkeep. The

community also uses the pool.

REPAIR REQUEST

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board has requested city council

staff look into repairing the

memorial at Britomart Reserve at

Greens Point in Takapuneke. The

monument was created in 1898 to

commemorate Queen Victoria’s

60th jubilee and in recognition

of the importance of the site. The

community board has requested

city council staff supply costs for

the repairs and renovation of the

memorial.

Pool numbers down due to

community access scheme

THE NUMBER of people using

Norman Kirk Memorial Pool

has been significantly lower than

expected this summer season.

The city council expected 8885

people to use the pool, instead the

number recorded was 7517 – 1368

less than expected.

City council staff said the

introduction of a trial where

locals can apply for a season key

pass has made the recording of

exact numbers difficult.

However, the local community

has benefited from a longer

opening season, which is the

main goal of the new system.

Key holders were able to access

the pool seven days a week

between 7am and 8pm.

It came after residents asked for

greater flexibility for community

access, as they felt the opening

hours of noon to 7pm weren’t

long enough.

Volunteers were given lifeguard

training so they are able to

patrol the pool for special public

events and school swimming

programmes outside of the

opening hours.

While the numbers at Norman

Kirk Memorial Pool were lower

TAKING A DIP: Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner (left) with Richard

Homer and his daughters, Bronwyn, 8, and Caitlin, 11. ​

than expected, throughout the

city the number of visitors to

city council-operated pools was

up more than 13,000 from the

2015/2016 season.

City council operations leader

Rob Gibbs says the higher

numbers are great to see.

“This summer, we held more

organised pool parties, and the

decision to make opening hours

consistent across all outdoor

pools has made for a more

enjoyable experience,” he said.

The outdoor pools at the

Waltham Swimming Pool, Te

Hapua Halswell Aquatic Centre

and Jellie Park Recreation and

Sports Centre will also close on

Sunday.

Paddling pools in local parks

close on Sunday, April 2.

FREEDOM CAMPING is still

causing issues in Lyttelton, with

15 infringement notices issued

this month alone.

All of the notices were issued

at Naval Point for camping in a

prohibited area.

They were issued to campers

for breaking the restrictions put

in place by the city council and

consisted of a $200 fine.

The city council cracked

down on freedom camping

across the city last summer

following public outcry over

the amount of rubbish left by

campers and the unsanitary

conditions.

Several areas across Banks

Peninsula and the city banned

freedom camping, while other

areas restricted freedom camping

to fully self-contained units

NO MORE:

The city

council

has been

cracking

down on

freedom

camping,

issuing

fines to

those

breaking

the rules. ​

Freedom campers fined

which are only able to stay two

nights over 30 days.

Lyttelton Community Association

chairman Ken Maynard

said it had been “noticed” but

the real problem was with the

lack of available sites for campers

“There are insufficient sites

for campers to go,” Mr Maynard

said.

He said if there were more

sites allocated to freedom

camping it might not be such a

problem.

City council staff have also

been enforcing the freedom

camping bylaw across the city

and peninsula, issuing 107 $200

fines during daily inspections

of prohibited areas.

No fines were issued during

the previous summer season.

Red rock donations surpass

city council expectations

LYTTELTON residents have

been on the hunt for red rock to

help resurface heritage retaining

walls.

Earlier this year, the Great

Lyttelton Red Rock Hunt was

launched, in which people were

asked to look through their

gardens and sections for any

spare pieces of rock so work on

the wall could be finished.

Contractors were working

to reface the retaining wall on

the corner of Coleride Tce and

Dublin St, but noticed they were

quickly running out of the red

volcanic rock.

City council project manager

Richard Humm said the

response from the community

had been fantastic, with donations

coming from a range of

people and institutions, including

Lyttelton’s Anglican church

and Lyttelton School.

The contractors 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.

Enough rock has now been

gathered to not only finish

work on the Coleridge Tce and

Dublin St retaining wall, but

I SEE RED: The city council has collected a large amount of

red rock donated to reface Lyttelton’s retaining walls. ​

to also reface some of the other

retaining walls in Lyttelton.

The walls are a distinctive

part of Lyttelton’s streetscape

and many of them were built in

the mid-19th century by the inmates

at Lyttelton Gaol. During

the earthquakes, many of the

walls collapsed or were so badly

damaged that they needed to be

deconstructed.

Refacing all the damaged

walls is an expensive task and

not all of them can be done.

However, key walls around the

township are being refaced using

salvaged rocks.

“We’ve still to collect some

of the rock that people have offered

us so it is difficult to quantify

exactly how much we’ve

recovered but it is a significant

amount,’’ Mr Humm said.

With the amount of rock the

community has collected, the

high priority walls can be completed

and contractors will be

able to use red rock on the next

priority walls.

“This is great news for the

heritage listed walls and for the

community of Lyttelton,” he

said.

Mr Humm said he still wants

to hear from anyone who has

surplus red rock to donate, as

there was no shortage of walls

it could be used on. People with

spare rock should email richard.

Lack of

funds leads

to job cuts

•From page 1

The trust was established in

2008 and was instrumental to

the community following the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

offering support and help for

those in need.

Lyttelton Youth Centre

stopped operating its premises

last week, it has combined with

Lyttelton Community House

Trust.

The centre has also faced

funding shortfalls and could not

afford to run at its premises any

more.

It was set up to help young

people in the area by giving them

a place to hang out and offer support

if they needed it.

The funding shortfall has

meant the centre has to close and

combine the services with the

trust.

Mr Manch said it would be

good to increase the hours in

the future but there needs to be

enough funding to be able to do

that.

“There is no point getting

enough money to have the hours

go back up for only three months

and then have them cut again,”

Mr Manch said.

Labour

Ruth Dyson

writes about

the police

presence

in Lyttelton

and

encouraging residents

to get involved in the

community patrol

A lot of people in our

communities grew up in an

era where you could leave your

house open when you went out

and when you came home, it

was safe and secure.

The local cop knew everyone

in the neighbourhood and

knew how to respond to problems

– and how to avoid them

arising in the first place.

People looked out for their

neighbours. There was less

inequality and more inclusion

and respect in our communities.

There has been a lot of talk

recently – and of course, it

takes off now on social media

– about the lack of presence

of police and the increase in

crime.

It might be what official statistics

describe as “lower level

crime” but if you have had stuff

stolen from your car or your

car itself stolen, if your home

has been burgled or if your

fence has been tagged – these

intrusions into your life can be

pretty disturbing.

We know that the police

are now being expected to do

far more with less. The Lyttelton

station which covers all

the Bay Harbour News area,

had, in 2010, 12 staff. This

number included a detective,

an investigator and a watch

house keeper. The rest were

uniformed staff.

They now have just five plus

the sergeant. They also had

staff based at the Sumner police

station which hasn’t been used

by the police for several years

now. So the police presence is

just not there as it used to be.

Two things that were obvious

from the recent community

police meeting in Lyttelton.

One was that people really

appreciated the work the police

do – and the fact they engaged

RESPECT:

A meeting

between

police and the

community was

held recently to

cover concerns

and provide

information as

to how police

operate in the

area.

at the meeting. The main

thing that people wanted was

to see the police around their

area – and to know they are

there when we need them.

And from the police was the

news that there is a “spare”

community patrol car available

for Lyttelton area. It just needs

volunteers trained and keen to

do the work.

Lyttelton is always up for a

challenge and I am sure it will

be for this one.

Pirate’s Corner

Look out for

navigation markers

• By Gary Manch, navigational

safety officer, Lyttelton

TODAY WE are going to discuss

some of the various navigation

markers and posts on the water

or onshore which all skippers

should know about.

For those of you who have

completed a skipper’s day course

or similar (I suggest that you do

a course if you haven’t already

contact your local Coastguard)

then you may want to carry on to

the next page, but you may also

want a reminder.

Water ski access lanes are

marked by orange and black

posts with information signs

attached. Sometimes there may

be orange and black buoys in the

water as well these will indicate

the area of the access lane.

The purpose of the access lanes

is to allow a boat which is towing

a water-skier or biscuit to exceed

the five-knot speed limit within

200m of shore. In the access

lane area you go anticlockwise

so you leave the shore from the

starboard (right) side and reenter

from the port side (left).

The access lanes are not for

other water-users to hoon around

in. Jet-skiers, for example, trying

to use the lane for recreation

could cause problems for boaties

trying to get in and out of the

access lane with their waterskiers

or biscuits.

Any vessel that is towing

must have an observer who is

at least 10-years-old watching.

The observer can watch what is

happening behind the boat and

alert the skipper to any dangers.

This rule includes those of you

out there on jet skis that are

towing; no exceptions!

What about those black and

white posts or buoys marking

a reserved or restricted area?

This is where you have a look

at the Navigation Safety Bylaw:

https://ecan.govt.nz/do-itonline/harbourmasters-office/

recreational-boating/. The charts

in the bylaw will clearly show

what activity may take place

there.

The yellow buoys in the water

with five knots written on them

– they indicate a five-knot speed

limit. It seems very simple, but as

the harbourmaster’s navigation

safety officer I see many people

exceeding this limit. Speed limits

are put in place to keep you and

other water users safe; they must

be followed!

As usual, if you have any

questions feel free to email me at

gary.manch@ecan.govt.nz.

to the community voice

owns the port? The city council

were in boots and all to make

a submission about concerns

relating to offshore petroleum

drilling. Not so, when it affects

their own Port Company.

The city council argues that

community boards could not

submit on notified resource

management act matters where

the city council was the decisionmaker

on the application. They

also said that it would not affect

its direct interest.

As a colleague rightly

reminded me: “Adverse

environmental effects occur close

to the site and are therefore local,

therefore relevant to community

boards.”

Is the city council saying that

the harbour and coastline line

are not of interest to them? Ask

the ratepayers!

I support the Lyttelton Port

Company in its development

proposal. The economic benefits

to the city and the wider

Canterbury region will be

positive.

Nonetheless, the democratic

process is an ideal principle to

uphold and transparency is vital.

The city council failed in its duty

to listen to the Banks Peninsula

Community Board and stymied

the submission process.

The community board deserve

acknowledgement and credit for

advocating on behalf of their

local community.

The city council, however,

deserve to be scolded as they

were more interested in trying to

do things right for themselves,

rather than doing the right thing

for the community.

The city council has

responded to Darrell

Latham’s views on dredging

in the Lyttelton Harbour

• City council staff provided

advice to the Banks Peninsula

Community Board following

their resolution to ask the city

council to prepare a submission

on the resource consent

application, including a request

to engage appropriate experts

to consider the environmental

impacts of the dredging

proposal. That advice outlined

the city council’s policy around

lodging a submission and noted

that city council staff are careful

PLAN: A

plan to allow

dredging in

the harbour to

allow access

for larger

ships has

been met with

opposition.

not to duplicate the work being

done by another local authority,

in this case Environment

Canterbury. Following that

advice the Banks Peninsula

Community Board decided to

revoke their earlier resolution.

• The distinguishing features

here are that there is no

opportunity for the general

public to make submissions

on the block offers and the city

council has a particular interest

given the proximity to Banks

Peninsula and the marine

reserve.

• The city council is not

the decision maker here. It is

Environment Canterbury.

• There is no doubt that

environmental impacts on the

harbour and coastline are of

interest to local residents and

many others across the whole

district. ECan has statutory

responsibility for these matters

and it is their role to consider

the adequacy of the information

provided and make a decision on

the resource consent application.

• The city council supports

community boards making

submissions and exercising

their delegations in respect of

local projects, that is, projects

that only have a local impact

within the community board

boundaries. The proposal for the

expansion of the port is clearly

a project of significance to the

city and the region as a whole.

As such if a submission was to be

made it would be a city council

submission. In this particular

case the staff recommendation

was that no submission was

required and staff were confident

that Environment Canterbury

were aware of all of the issues.

Sumner’s season gets under way

SPORTS

FLYING HIGH: Dylan Nel will look to push on from an impressive

2016 campaign which saw him score 10 tries for Sumner and

make the Canterbury NPC squad. PHOTOS: ROZELLE MAY

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER HAS prepared well

ahead of their opening game of

the metro rugby competition

on Saturday.

After a handful of pre-season

hit-outs, Sumner will get their

first taste of competitive action

when they face Christchurch at

Linfield Park.

The team will play under the

guidance of a new coach this

season.

Martin Field-Dodgson, 39,

comes to Sumner with 10 years

of professional coaching experience

in Italy.

He’s held various roles at Benetton

Treviso, which play in the

Pro 12 competition, including

academy manager and assistant

coach.

His first job in his new role

has been getting the side in

shape ahead of the demanding

season. He says while the team

may not be where they would

like to be tactically, their fitness

levels are peaking.

“That was the principle priority

for pre-season. The boys

themselves identified that as

being an area we could make

some big gains on and we’ve

had some really intense, short

but sharp training sessions

since coming together,” said

Field-Dodgson.

In the pre-season, Sumner

produced three tries in the

final 20 minutes to save a draw

against Belfast. At the weekend,

they went down 28-38 to University.

Sumner finished last year’s

12-team Hawkins Cup roundrobin

in ninth spot. They then

finished as the second best

qualifier in the bottom six competition

before being eliminated

by University in the knock-out.

They have retained the bulk

of their squad from last year,

including South African-born

flanker, Dylan Nel, who was the

team’s top try scorer last season.

“We’ve got a nice core of guys

that have had a taste of the

next level. We run a leadership

group and a lot of the boys who

we’re part of the Canterbury

team are in it,” said Field-

Dodgson.

The opening round of the

Hawkins Cup will see all 12

teams play at the same venue,

using three grounds at Linfield

Park.

Sumner will be part of the

day’s first game when their

match against Christchurch

kicks off at 1pm.

RETURN: Fijian winger Poasa

Waqanibau is back for another

season. He also made the

Canterbury squad on the back of a

strong campaign for Sumner.

Bays gain experience in

national competition

THE FERRYMEAD Bays

under-17 boys’ team came within

a whisker of a top 12 play-off

spot in Auckland recently.

They competed in the Auckland

City Football Club under-17

tournament, which brings

together the best of the youth

talent from around the country,

playing in a competitive tournament

format.

On day one, Bays suffered a

3-0 loss to Cashmere Technical

and a 6-0 loss to Three Kings

United before defeating Glenfield

Rovers 2-0.

Day two saw the team start

with a 0-0 draw against Tauranga

City United and a 3-0 loss

to Central United FC.

In the quarter finals, Bays

came up against Waitakere City

FC. After a 0-0 stalemate at

full-time the two sides went to

penalties.

The dramatic spot kick decider

saw Waitakere advance 10-9 on

penalties.

The end result meant Bays

didn’t qualify for the top 12

of 24 on day three, but gained

great experience and an idea of

the level of talent around the

country.

EXPERIENCE: Ferrymead Bays’ Omar Cameron and Joe Hoole compete for the ball against

Cashmere Technical .

and interact with other children.

A petting zoo, bouncy castle,

pony rides and many other

the day to keep the children

entertained.

DONATIONS: Principal Stuart Cameron, pupil Ruby Allpress

Sumner club gives rugby

gear to Samoan children

AN IDEA from Sumner School

prompted the local rugby club

to send sports gear to Samoa to

help encourage children to play

sport.

The Sumner Rugby Football

Club heard about the school’s

planned visit to Samoa and

wanted to get involved by

sending over some sports

gear.

Last week, rugby development

officer for the club, Lawrence

Babe, visited the school to hand

over the kits, which included

rugby gear, boots, jackets and

shorts.

A spokesperson for the club

said it wanted to donate the gear

to give children in Samoa the

opportunity to play rugby and

achieve their goals.

Twelve-year-old pupil Ruby

Allpress said she thought being

a pupil in Samoa would be very

different to New Zealand.

The pupils head to Samoa on

May 5.​

Fendalton Dental Surgery,

looking after your dental needs

Fendalton Dental Surgery, on the Idris

& Glandovey Roads corner has been

looking after the dental needs of their local

community as well as the wider Christchurch

area since 2011. It is operated by Dr Keith

Chiang and his highly experienced team who

can perform a variety of complex procedures

ranging from General & Cosmetic Family

Dentistry including Dentures upto more

complex work like Wisdom teeth surgery,

Implants and Crowns.

Dentists Keith Chiang and Zohnia

McNeill and Dental Hygienist Amy Lee

offer a complete range of dental and oral

care services, all in a very calm and relaxed

environment. “We listen carefully to what

our patients tell us so we can address each of

their dental problems and help them achieve

good oral health,” says Keith.

A major component of Keith’s work is

under IV sedation, which is available for

people that are very nervous about visiting

the dentist. He has performed more than

2000 Intravenous sedation procedures and

the clinic is equipped with the latest advanced

equipment for sedation monitoring. He has

a special interest in Oral Surgery, Implants

and Intra venous sedation.

For people with damaged or missing teeth,

Zohnia will discuss with them the options

of having crowns, permanent implants or

dentures fitted, all of which have the added

advantage of helping clients regain their

functional bite as well as improve their

smile and overall confidence. She

has a special interest in Cosmetic

dentistry, Root Canals and Geriatric

dentistry. Her calm approach and

special individual attention to detail

has helped deal with most common

dental issues in her patients.

Hygienist Amy specialises in

the overall maintenance of healthy

teeth and gums. She educates her

clients on how to look after their

oral health, which if not taken care

of can have detrimental effects

on their overall health. The gum

disease, Gingivitis is one of the main reasons

why people lose their teeth, the dentists

point out, while research also indicates that

gum disease in pregnant women can mean

a higher chance of premature birth and low

birth weight.

Dry mouth or reduced salivary flow,

which is caused by certain medications that

people take can also lead to gum problems

and tooth decay. By visiting the hygienist

regularly, gum problems can be prevented,

and consequently tooth decay as well as

more serious health issues can be avoided.

Fendalton Dental Surgery will soon add to

its suite of advanced dental equipment with

Dr Zohnia McNeil,

Dentist

Amy Lee,

Dental Hygienist

a state-ofthe-art

3D CT scanner, which will be used

to scan jaws, enabling the dentists to give a

better diagnosis of clients’ dental problems.

Keith, Zohnia and Amy invite new

patients to visit their clinic and experience

Expert Care and of being one of their valued

patients, and without having to pay high

fees.

Easily accessible, highly visible and

with plenty of on-site parking, Fendalton

Dental Surgery, on the corner of

Glandovey and Idris road, is open Monday

to Friday 8.30am-5pm. Phone 351 1188

CHRISTCHURCH’S growing

red light-running problem is

leaving dozens of injuries in its

wake.

In the past year, there were 65

crashes which left people

injured after drivers ran

red lights, up from 42 the

year before.

At the city’s top 10

worst intersections this

month, almost 5400

drivers ran red lights in a

single day.

That was up 31 per cent from

last year, and 64 per cent more

than in 2014.

They do not include people

turning right across an intersection

on a red light.

The worst for red light-runners

was the intersection of Blenheim

Rd and Mandeville St, where 652

were detected on a single day on

Thursday, December 1.

Police figures have also grown.

In the last year, 1491 people

were ticketed for running red

lights in Christchurch, up from

1316 the year before and 1266 in

2014.

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Al Stewart

(left) said he was disappointed to

see the rise.

“It puts people at risk. They

may get away with it 99

out of 100 times, but it is

that one time which could

leave someone injured or

killed,” he said.

He said police had a

focus last year on bad

driving at intersections,

which included red

light-running, and that would

continue until the numbers

improved.

People often had different

excuses when ticketed for running

red lights, but there was no

acceptable reason, he said.

“A lot of people are simply

focused on other things and

don’t see it, but that is just as

unacceptable as running a light

deliberately, because when driving

you should be focused on the

task at hand,” he said.
