Governors Bay’s Chris McLean will look to stamp his claim in the

opening round of the New Zealand Rally Championship in Otago

this weekend. This year will be the 21-year-old’s first national

campaign. He has previously competed in a number of South Island

rallies, including a fifth place finish in the two-wheel-drive class at

last year’s Canterbury Rally.

ANGER IS growing over a

cellphone tower which has been

constructed in Sumner.

Residents have contacted local

community board member

Darrell Latham asking why it is

there.

The Vodafone tower has been

put up outside the SuperValue

supermarket car park on Nayland

St.

Dr Latham said he wanted to

know why it was put in such a

central location when it wasn’t

“easy on the eye.”

Under the Telecommunications

Act public consultation

is not required, and the city

council only steps in if the tower

does not met the requirements of

the act.

Dr Latham said he was surprised

public consultation did

not need to be carried out.

News......................................3-6

ONE OF the most abused rules

of the road code is back on the

radar – how fast you can pass a

stationary school bus.

If you don’t know, it’s 20km/h.

Motorists are being warned to

slow right down when passing a

school bus picking up or dropping

off children (see page 3).

Why – because kids will be kids

and they do unpredictable things.

If you’re going 50, 80 or 100km/h

you’ve got no chance of stopping.

So if it means hitting the anchors

in a 100km/h zone when

coming up to a stationary school

bus – do it.

Someone who won’t be slowing

down this weekend is Governors

Bay’s Chris McLean. He is competing

in the opening round of

the NZ Rally Championship (see

page 14).

Keep the foot down, Chris.

Plea to slow down near school buses

• By Tom Doudney

MOTORISTS ignoring the

20km/h speed limit when

passing school buses are

frustrating police, bus drivers

and the wider public.

Legally, vehicles must slow

down to 20km/h on both sides of

the road when passing buses.

Clint Ross, who has been driving

a school bus for 15 years, said

most people ignored the law.

“A handful abide, the rest don’t

give a damn,” he said.

“Kids can just pop out just like

that. They just run behind the

bus and straight across the road

or walk out the door and in front

of the bus and straight across

the road without even thinking.

I’ve seen near misses quite a few

times.”

Mr Ross’ bus is full most days.

He had a message for drivers:

“Just think, if your children were

on this bus and they got off and

someone wasn’t abiding by the

speed limit and hit your child,

how would you feel?”

Mr Ross said one of the most

frustrating things was that most

police cars passing the bus often

didn’t slow down either.

“That really brasses me off,” he

said.

“They should know better.”

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills

said motorists ignoring the

20km/h speed limit when passing

school buses was an ongoing

problem.

“It’s a traffic law that a lot of

motorists aren’t familiar with –

and should be,” he said.

While road safety was of critical

importance for everyone, it

was especially important that

extra care was taken to protect

more vulnerable members of

society, including children using

school buses.

Senior Sergeant Stills said

he would be “extremely disappointed”

if any of his officers

were indeed not abiding by the

20km/h limit.

In Brief

CASS BAY ACCESS

A focus has been put on

making Cass Bay more

accessible for the disabled and

those with mobility issues.

At a recent Cass Bay Reserve

Management Committee

meeting, members decided to

make this a priority. It is seen

as an ongoing project by the

committee, which will look at

how to make access to the toilet,

playground and beach easier for

the disabled.

SMOKE FILLS HOUSE

Smoke alarms and a

quick-thinking neighbour

prevented a Lyttelton house

from being burnt down last

week. Firefighters were called

to the Exeter St property to

find it filled with smoke. The

occupant had left the property

while cooking, and when the

the neighbour heard the smoke

alarm going off, phoned the fire

brigade. Lyttelton fire chief Mark

Buckley said the householder

came home while they were

cleaning up. He said he was a bit

shocked but very thankful the

neighbours had reacted when

they did, essentially saving

the house. Mr Buckley said it

was a reminder to make sure

everything is off before leaving

the house.

He said even though it is not

required it should be up to companies

to let the community know

where they plan to build cellphone

towers and if residents have concerns

about where it is proposed

companies should listen.

“They have the need to act as

responsible community citizens,”

he said.

The Sumner Residents’ Association

spokesperson Kimberly

Mossman didn’t want to comment

as they didn’t know enough

about it.

Dr Latham said he noticed the

tower last week, which was when

residents’ started asking him

about it.

He said people weren’t unhappy

about a cellphone tower being

built, it was the look and location

that was upsetting to residents.

City council staff said there is

no lease on the tower and it will

be there indefinitely.

Ellesmere plan not pursued

• By Tom Doudney

RETURNING TE Waihora/

Lake Ellesmere to its pre-1940s

condition was not pursued in

restoration plans because of the

“considerable” social disruption

it would involve.

The fact that the Central

Plains Water scheme, expected

to lead to intensification of

agriculture in the catchment

and a higher nitrogen load,

had already

been granted

resource consent

and “this

could not be

overturned”

was also a

factor.

Tim Davie

The Selwyn

Te Waihora

section of

Environment Canterbury’s

Land and Water Regional Plan,

which became operational last

year, seeks to limit the amount

of nitrogen reaching the lake to

4800 tonnes per year.

Before the 1940s, it is estimated

the lake had about 800

tonnes of nitrogen reaching

it per year. Since then, the

nitrogen load has increased, accompanied

by a deterioration in

water quality.

NUTRIENT MATTERS: Returning Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere

to its pre-1940s condition was not seen as feasible.

An ECan staff report to

yesterday’s Selwyn Waihora

Zone Committee outlined the

background to lake restoration

measures as an update to new

committee members.

The report said that achieving

a nitrogen load of 800 tonnes

per year would require retirement

of intensive agriculture

from the lake’s catchment area,

along with other lake and catchment

interventions.

In agreeing on 4800 tonnes

per year as the target, the zone

committee had taken into

account “the importance of agriculture

to the Selwyn district

economy and employment with

the need to maintain farm financial

viability” and that Central

Plains Water irrigation “was

consented and this could not be

overturned” under provisions in

the Resource Management Act.

Without the nutrient limits

set in the plan, the amount

of nitrogen reaching the lake

would be an estimated 5600

tonnes per year.

The zone implementation

programme for Selwyn Te

Waihora states that none

of the other lake mitigation

options being employed were

a substitute for nutrient load

limits and active management to

reduce nitrogen and phosphorus

entering the lake.

“The lower the nutrient load

limits set, the more effective

the lake mitigation actions are

likely to be and the better the

outcomes for the lake.

Conversely, the higher the

nutrient load, the greater is

the reliance on successful lake

mitigations and the lesser are

the lake outcomes that are

possible.”

ECan chief scientist Tim

Davie said the nutrient

concentration in the lake would

be reduced by a large amount.

He also said water quality and

lake health were not the same

thing.

“Fishers now are likely to tell

you it is very healthy, as healthy

as it has been for a very long

time. However, water quality is

still an issue,” said Dr Davie.

Born in 1969, Kirsty lives in Auckland

with her husband and two children.

She has been a full-time artist since

1977. She says “Although it can be

such a rewarding, frustrating, joyous,

terrifying occupation I can’t imagine

not having it in my life.”

About her latest exhibition, “It was

a natural step for me to introduce

our striking native birds to my work.

They quietly snuck in without me even

thinking about it too much. We often

hear the heavy swoop of wood pigeon

as they move from branch to branch

and I am woken to the melodic call of

the Tui most mornings at home and

often surprised by their lively dives

through the garden. Fantails pick

bugs from our path as we walk the

dog through the bush near home. And

yet we live in a city. We are fortunate

Kirsty Nixon

ON THE WING

to still have these creatures share our

space and enhance our landscape.

Up close, their feathers shine with a

metallic luminous quality and when

painting the whites of their eyes they

each develop personalities.

Interestingly the birds in this show

have mainly been on the wing and

it seems to reflect a current state of

mind with a sense of escapism and

freedom.

Colour excites me and the time

seemed right to challenge myself with

a fresh exciting palette along with my

new subject matter. Embracing colour

in my new pieces has been a joy and

wonderfully liberating.”

The Wing’ takes place at Little River

Rockfall risk to close cave

In Brief

• By Caitlin Miles

MONCKS CAVE in Redcliffs

will be fenced off due to rockfall

risk.

At a meeting last week city

council staff presented a geotech

hazard report and landscaping

plan to members of the

community about the cave and

surrounding reserve.

The cave and land in Moncks

Cave Reserve on the corner of

Main Rd and Cave Tce in Redcliffs

has been closed off from

the public since the February 22,

2011, earthquake, due to risk of

collapse or rockfall. Over that

time the reserve has become

overgrown with its future uncertain.

At the meeting between city

council staff and members

of the Redcliffs community,

Redcliffs Residents’ Association

secretary Pat McIntosh said city

council staff presented a plan

to tidy up the reserve and fence

off the cave due to the risk of

rockfall.

Dr McIntosh said she was glad

the city council hosted the evening

to discuss the future of the

cave and reserve with members

of the community.

“It was a useful session and

good for them to bring that

information to the public,” Dr

McIntosh said.

has been cleared of weeds and

City council plans to fence off

the entry to the cave to protect

the public. Dr McIntosh said it

was clear it needed to be fenced

off for safety reasons and others

at the meeting were happy with

the outcome.

Dr McIntosh said what the

city council planned “will be a

big improvement” on the current

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.

LYTTELTON PEOPLE are

offering help to struggling

community centres following last

week’s front page article in Bay

One community centre has

been closed and another has had

to reduce hours and cut staff just

to stay running.

Lyttelton Youth Centre had to

stop operating its premises and

combine with Lyttelton Community

House Trust, which has

reduced hours and has cut staff

due to funding shortfalls.​

The article has encouraged

members of the community to

look at fundraising options for

Residents have been encouraged

to get in touch with the

Lyttelton Community House

Trust chairwoman Thea Mickell

to discuss fundraising ideas and

options to help support the trust.

Recycling wastewater an option

RECYCLING Akaroa’s

wastewater to keep the area

green is a possibility.

On Monday, the city council

opened up consultation on the

future of disposing the community’s

wastewater, presenting five

different options to choose from.

The options include reusing

the treated

wastewater to

irrigate trees

or pasture at

Takamātua Valley,

Robinsons

Bay or Pompeys

John Mackie

Pillar, provide

non-drinking

water for garden watering and

toilet flushing in Akaroa or

discharging it into the midharbour,

which was the original

application.

The city council has consent to

build a new treatment plant, but

its application to Environment

Canterbury for a new consent

to continue discharging treated

wastewater into the harbour was

turned down at a hearing last year.

The city council was asked to

give more consideration to landbased

disposal methods that

would not require discharging

wastewater into the harbour.

Options are being looked at

as the consent for the current

wastewater treatment plant expires

in 2020 and funding for the

new scheme was included in the

2016-2017 annual plan.

Head of Three Waters and

Waste John Mackie said the

current treatment plant, which

discharges treated wastewater

into Akaroa Harbour, was near

the end of its useful life.

Mr Mackie said each of the

four new options involved

reclaiming and reusing, or recycling,

the treated wastewater.

“The water will be treated to

a very high standard, removing

almost all bacteria and viruses,

and could be suitable for a range

of uses, including irrigation and

garden watering.’’

The options being presented

to the community were chosen

in pre-consultation meetings

with a working party representing

members of the Akaroa,

Robinsons Bay and Takamātua

communities, appointees

from Ōnuku Rūnanga and Te

Rūnanga O Koukourārata and

elected members of the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

and city council. The group was

supported by a team of technical

experts and city council staff.

Consultation on the options

closes at the end of the month.

PLAYING WITH huskies was

just some of the fun pupils

from Our Lady Star of the

Sea had while studying global

warming.

The year 5 and 6 pupils have

been studying the effects of

carbon emissions and global

warming on Antarctica.

During their lessons, they

got a special treat – going to

the International Antarctic

Centre.

They met some huskies and

got to ride in a Hagglunds

vehicle while they were there.

Meanwhile, year 7 and 8

pupils have also been busy.

They visited some early

childhood centres in Sumner

to read to the children.

The senior pupils adopt a

new entrant each year as part

of the school’s our buddy

programme.

They introduce the new

entrants to the school and the

older pupils.

FURRY FRIENDS: Vincent Miller and Georgie Powell had

fun meeting the huskies as part of the trip.

Busy C’s Preschool pupils celebrate new home with karakia

BUSY C’S Preschool

celebrated its new home last

week with an official opening.

The Lyttelton preschool

moved to the old St Joseph

School on Winchester St last

month, but a celebration was

held on Monday with a karakia

to formally welcome the

guests and bless the site.

Preschool owner Caro Davidson

said they were pleased

to be on the site and host a

small celebration.

Parent Manaia Cunningham,

of Rapaki and Koukourarata/Port

Levy, shared a karakia

acknowledging the past

and future of the preschool at

the new site.

Ms Davidson said it was

great to be able to acknowledge

the work of those who helped

move the preschool and recognise

their hard work.

The old school building and

concreted outdoor area were

changed to make new learning

spaces to better suit the needs

of the preschool. The preschool

was based at the former Lyttelton

West School on Voelas Rd. ​

Dictionaries in schools

Ferrymead Rotary

Club member Barbara

Crooks writes about

how important hardcopy

dictionaries in schools are,

and the value they have

compared to their online

counterpart

IT’S A developing debate –

dictionaries in traditional

book form against the ethereal

internet. It’s a poser that crops

up each year for Ferrymead

Rotary members and several

schools.

For some years now

Ferrymead Rotary has supplied

colourful illustrated dictionaries

for year 4 children in some local

schools.

This year 160 dictionaries, in

total, were given to Bromley,

Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s

schools. Each child is given a

dictionary to use at school and

eventually to take home.

In most schools they are used

as a class set until the end of the

year when the children are able

to keep them.

The schools say that if the

dictionaries were given to the

children at the beginning of the

year, there would be none in the

classroom by the end of the year.

And children who came to the

school during the year would not

have a dictionary to work with.

In spite of the growing lure of

technology and computerised

access to information, teachers

say the book dictionaries are still

valued and used alongside the

internet.

For some children, the dictionary

will be the first book

they have ever owned.

Ferrymead Rotary hopes these

dictionaries will help launch the

children on a lifelong, reading

journey.

Ferrymead Rotary is assisted

in providing the dictionaries by

the Lorna and Bill Boyd Trust.

The trust offers all Rotary

clubs in New Zealand subsidised

dictionaries to give to low-decile

schools.

what we get up to at Ferrymead

Push to keep cruise ships

returning to Lyttelton

National

List MP Nuk

Korako writes

about why

cruise ships

should be

brought back

to Lyttelton

Tourism is a key industry in

the Port Hills electorate. And

perhaps more than any suburb,

it is vitally important to Lyttelton.

Visitors from Canterbury,

New Zealand and the world enjoy

coming to Lyttelton to enjoy

the history, architecture and

natural beauty of the town.

Lyttelton has often played a

key role in the tourism industry

for Canterbury as a whole as

well. As the entry point for

cruise ship passengers, the Lyttelton

Port boosted visitor numbers

and tourist revenue in both

Lyttelton and Christchurch.

Of course, all that changed

with the earthquakes. And while

so much in our city has been

rebuilt, and the Lyttelton Port

Recovery Plan is progressing

well, not enough attention has

been paid to rebuilding the

infrastructure necessary to bring

cruise ships back to Lyttelton.

I have appreciated the assurances

from Lyttelton Port Company

CEO Peter Davie that LPC

is committed to seeing a cruise

terminal return to the port. But

understandably, the Port Company’s

main focus is on the areas

that give it the best return. A

cruise ship terminal has great

benefits for Lyttelton and for

Canterbury, but the commercial

benefit may not match that of

the port’s core freight business.

That is why the question of

rebuilding the cruise terminal

is not just one for the Port

Company, but also for the cruise

ship companies and city council.

I will also be speaking with the

relevant Ministers about the

appropriate level of central Government

involvement in making

this happen.

I know from my own experience

in the tourism industry that

if we don’t move quickly to bring

the cruise ships back to Lyttelton,

there’s every chance the

cruise companies will move on

and it will be harder than ever

to bring this vital component

of our tourism industry back to

town. We need to make sure that

doesn’t happen, and I am committed

to doing what I can to

ensure buy-in from central and

local government.

New identification rules

• By Gary Manch, navigational

safety officer, Lyttelton

Pirate’s Corner

I ALWAYS find it a struggle

when we change over from long

summer days to the start of

autumn.

When we put our clocks back

it is the final nail in the coffin for

summer, and we start the trek

into winter.

As Easter approaches – the

last long weekend before winter

sets in – I am pleased to report

that we have had a great summer

in terms of boating behaviour

with very few serious incidents

reported to me.

Let’s not slack off now. Don’t

spoil the great record to date –

be careful, follow the Navigation

Safety Rules and local bylaws,

and simply be courteous to other

boaties out there.

With the end of the season

approaching, one thing I would

like you to plan in over the

winter is to get your boat upto-date

to comply with the new

identification rules put in place

under the Canterbury Regional

Council Navigation Safety Bylaw

2016 part 20.

To put this in the simplest

terms, any power boat or jet ski

that is towed on a trailer, must

have the registration number of

the trailer displayed on the vessel

(letters/numbers to be at least

90mm in height), visible above

the water line on both sides

of the vessel. The registration

number must be visible to the

naked eye from a distance of at

least 50m.

Any good signwriter will be

able to supply lettering and, if

you require it, put them on your

vessel for you.

There are some exceptions to

this – if you have a current MNZ

or foreign authority number,

belong to a sporting body approved

by the Harbourmaster, or

have the vessel’s VHF call sign

displayed then you will already

comply. Or if you are visiting

Canterbury from another region

and meet their identification

requirements, you are all good.

Read part 20 of the Navigation

Safety bylaw 2016. This will advise

you of all the identification requirements

depending on the type

and length of vessel you own.

I strongly suggest you check

out the whole bylaw at https://

ecan.govt.nz/do-it-online/harbourmasters-office/recreationalboating/.

I am always happy to

answer any questions you may

have on this or any other boating

matter. Best way to find me

is by email to gary.manch@ecan.

govt.nz.

So why so much emphasis on

getting ID on your boat? Simple

answer: while 99 per cent of you

out there are great boaties and

comply with the rules, the onr

per cent who don’t need to be

identified so we can take appropriate

action to ensure everyone’s

safety. Having an identification

system allows enforcement officers

to follow up complaints and

take appropriate action against

the person offending, be it by way

of education or other stronger

measures such as fines.

Anecdotally, where identification

is in place, good behaviour

increases. It’s a no-brainer really.

Readers respond to a story

in last week’s Bay Harbour

News about freedom

camping still being a

problem in Lyttelton

Gill Hubert – “There are

insufficient sites for campers to

go,” Mr Maynard said. Are you

kidding me? Go to the many

campgrounds in and around

Canterbury. Bludgers.

Jackie Richardson – So

put up a block of facilities. Toilets,

coin showers, and kitchen.

More tourists more money.

Sally Cammock – At least

it’s in or near the bin.

Pamela Neil – Make it illegal

or stop whinging.

The first stage of the

Rapanui-Shag Rock

Cycleway, which will

run from Ferrymead to

the central city, has to

be re-done because the

concrete laid was not up

to standard

Kel Mitchelle – You had

one job.

Maria Quinney – Shocking,

get it right.

Karene Smith – Please

build these as pedestrian and

shared cycleways. Some already

built are absolutely impractical.

Sawyers Arms Rd/Main

North Rd has high kerbs and

encroaches into parking and the

left turning lane. Stupid. Also

trucks on Sawyers Arms Rd will

be more prevalent carrying volumes

of materials to sites for the

Northern Motorway construction.

Cyclists here no way.

Steve Burge – The whole

city is a joke with these so called

town planners. Look at St Asaph

St, better off being one lane, at

least it would flow better.

Beekeeper’s bid to

sting rivals in rally championship

GOVERNORS BAY’S Chris

McLean is about to take on the

NZ Rally Championship in

the Ford Fiesta he has spent all

summer preparing.

McLean, 21, and navigator

Sarah Brennan, 25, of Christchurch,

will take on New Zealand’s

best rally drivers starting with

the Rally of Otago this weekend,

followed by five further events

during the year.

The young rally driver grew up

in Governors Bay and spent much

of his youth with a pair of skis

under him. In summer, he’s on

the harbour and, in winter, he’s

on the snow.

McLean was introduced to rallying

when he worked at Magnum

Motorsport, where he learnt about

the workings of car preparation

and caught the rally bug.

Now a beekeeper, McLean is a

rookie in the NZRC this year and

will compete for the two-wheeldrive

and junior NZRC titles.

McLean has so far competed in

a handful of South Island events,

but has already been noticed as

someone with strong potential in

the sport.

He was selected to receive training

with Hayden Paddon. He received

tutoring from Paddon and

John Kennard, along with fitness

and media trainers. McLean and

Brennan have also both received

some financial help from the Paddon

Foundation.

While McLean is new to the

championship, navigator Brennan

has had several years in the NZRC

and has won the 2WD title twice

navigating for Christchurch’s

Hamish Anderson.

“Sarah brings really valuable

experience,” said McLean. “She

knows what she’s doing calling

pace notes, but also how all the

procedures work. Having been to

these events before means Sarah

will be a huge help in my NZRC

rookie year.”

The 2005 Ford Fiesta McLean

now owns has a big history. The

car launched the career of 2015

NZRC champion Ben Hunt, who

drove the car in 2009 as part of a

scholarship.

“The car is older but proven,

READY:

McLean and

Brennan begin

their NZRC

campaign

this weekend

in the

Otago Rally.

CAMERON

AND SARAH

FAULKNER

and we have put in a lot of new

parts to ensure it should run reliably

all season,” said McLean.

The team plan to compete in at

least five of the six rounds in this

year’s championship. The team is

assisted by a lot of Christchurch

people, including James Marshall,

who helps with the mechanical

work and provides some specialist

parts. Jeff Judd and the team at

Magnum have also provided help

and encouragement, while Tony

Gosling of Stadium Finance has

provided some support.

“We hope to make the podium

in 2WD, but we will be up against

a lot of good drivers in good cars,

many of whom have a lot more

experience than us,” said McLean.

”If we can get on the podium

regularly then that will be a win

for us.”

SPORTS

Sumner look for

improvement

against Sydenham

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER WILL look to showcase

what they displayed in the first

15 minutes of last week’s opening

round game when they play

Sydenham on Saturday.

After suffering a 14-20 loss to

Christchurch at the weekend,

Sumner will go for their first win

against Sydenham at Hospital

Corner.

Coach Martin Dodgson called

the side’s opening round defeat in

the Hawkins Cup an “honourable

loss” but is hopeful his side has

learnt from their scoreless second

half. They surrendered a 14-10

half-time advantage.

“I was ecstatic with our defence.

We had our chances to win it, but

overall I was really happy with the

guys attitudes,” said Dodgson.

“It’s really clear [what] we need

to work on this week to get better,

and I believe we will be on

Saturday.”

Sumner was dominant in the

first half against Christchurch,

scoring two converted tries in the

opening 15 minutes. They were

also one misguided pass away

from a third just before the break.

Sydenham opened their

campaign by defeating Linwood

43-22.

SOUTHSHORE’S ARI Graham

continued her strong season by

winning the female category at

Sumner’s Sea2Sky Challenge on

Sunday.

The 18-year-old is seen as one

of the next big hopes in the sport

and recently won the national

junior series.

First to finish in the men’s

event was Mike Phillips, who

also won last year’s inaugural

race.

The Christchurch athlete has

recently stepped up into the

Ironman distances and looks to

build on endurance racing over

the year.

Phillips, 26, recently tasted

success at the inaugural Breca

Wanaka, winning the long

course event with teammate

Nick Berry.

In the last event of the

Sovereign Tri Series, 450

Sea2Sky participants

descended on the Esplanade

to tackle a variety of triathlon

events.

There were more than

100 first-timers with some

competitors signing up only

days before the event.

The men’s field also included

Christchurch long distance

athlete, Dylan McNeice, who

men’s section

was pleased with the success

of the event and hopes one

day Christchurch will be

considered as a venue for future

international events.

War Cry

by Wilbur Smith

The next gripping Courtney family adventure from perennial

bestseller and fan favourite Wilbur Smith.

In a triumphant return to his much-loved Courtney series, Wilbur

Smith introduces us to the bravest new member of the famed

family, Saffron Courtney.

Saffron grows up on a sprawling Kenyan estate, under the watchful

eye of her father, prominent businessman and distinguished war

veteran Leon Courtney. Her childhood is idyllic, until a family tragedy forces

her to grow up much faster than necessary. As she grows into a spirited teenager,

her thirst for knowledge and adventures leads her to England, where she finds

herself inevitably drawn into the heart of the gathering storm in the lead-up to World

War II.

Gerhard von Meerbach is the privileged and idealistic younger brother of Konrad

von Meerbach, heir to an industrial fortune, and vocal supporter of the Nazi Party.

Gerhard struggles to stay true to his principles in an increasingly cruel world. His

friendship with a Jewish man places him in danger, and forces him to take a

stand against the forces of evil that have overtaken his country and his family. But,

unknown to him, he is caught in a trap that could cost him everything he holds dear.

As the Second World War looms over them all, Saffron and Gerhard’s worlds collide

– but will there be more to unite them than tear them apart?

A love story in the time of heroes, War Cry is the latest breathtaking episode in

Wilbur Smith’s epic account of one beloved family.

Breaking Ranks

by James McNeish

Three distinct stories about three distinct men, but with one thing in common - they

all paid the price for standing up for what they believed.

From a great writer, three great stories about conscience and consequence. This

is the story of three men - a doctor, a soldier and a judge. They are men of rare

achievement. The doctor has the gift of saving others but not himself. The soldier

disobeys orders and abandons his command post in a bid to die with his men. The

judge cares more to uphold a principle than save himself from ruin. All three defy

convention in a way that exacts a price. The first two, Dr John Saxby and Brigadier

Reginald Miles, destroy themselves. The death of the judge, Peter Mahon, is

hastened by his stand for truth and justice on behalf of the victims of New Zealand’s

worst air disaster. “New Zealand seems to have the knack of neutralising those who

try to foist moral greatness on their countrymen,” James McNeish writes. In Breaking

Ranks, the author celebrates three brave men whose guiding spirit - subversion?

anarchy? - challenges our assumptions of what it is to be a good New Zealander.

No objection to the renewal of a

Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act

2012.

This is the first publication of

this notice.

The weekend of 8th& 9th April is Steam Scene’s

Annual Steam Extravaganza at McLean’s Island

Road. The day is full of working demonstrations

where approx. 25 traction engines and steam

vehicles will be involved in working displays

of sawmilling, sheep shearing, road making,

threshing, water pumping, blacksmithing and

stone crushing.

There will be a number of traction engines visiting Christchurch for the first time

as well as the 2 Showman’s engines from the UK. They will return to the UK after

this Event. A steam train will be taking people on free rides. The Steam Museum

will be running its many stationary steam engines. The steam is generated from a

large wood fired boiler and for family fun they can watch the huge model railway

run. Food and drink stalls will be on hand for refreshments. Plenty of off road

parking.

Gates open 9 am with final demonstrations at 3 pm on both days. There is no

working Eftpos on site and no dogs permitted. People can get up close to the

machines and experience what it was like to operate such vehicles in the old days

as well as the sounds and smell generated by them.

A miniature train is running with rides costing $2.

The major working displays are in covered areas and will be staggered throughout

the day making it easy to see how big shiny driving rods and flywheels are linked

together to turn steam into power.
