Port Hills fire crews rewarded • By Caitlin Miles THE TIRELESS efforts of the Governors Bay Volunteer Fire Brigade, following the Port Hills fires, continue to be recognised. The brigade received a donation of nearly $1500 to say thank you. She Universe Cafe in Governors Bay created a special menu in gratitude. Cafe owner Debbie Prior said it was inspired by the dedication of firefighters. From every meal, the cafe donated $1 towards the special fund. The menu ran for the month of March and on Monday night they handed over a cheque for $1495. Chief fire officer Andrew Norris said they didn’t expect the cafe to host a fundraiser but they were grateful and it came at a good time. “The donation has helped us with a couple of big projects,” Mr Norris said. The brigade has just built a large garage and the donations have helped pay part of the $120,000 price tag. “We are really grateful to have the support,” he said. Building repair time extension sought THE FORMER Lyttelton Harbour Board building was supposed to be repaired by last month — but the extent of work is taking longer than expected. The building owners, Water Qual Ltd, applied for a heritage grant in 2015 and were given 18 months to complete work on the earthquake-damaged building. The city council approved a grant of $333,548 in October 2015, the owners were supposed to have the work completed by April but due to difficulties with the design, the project is running behind time. The owners are now asking the city council to extend the time frame by one year to allow the building to be finished and still be entitled to the money from the heritage grant. The new completion date would be March 23, 2018. It was designed in 1879 and has had many different uses over the years, up until the February 22, 2011, earthquake when it was severely damaged. The restoration of the project involved replacing the upper story and roof. •Turn to page 3 20 Seamount Terrace Prier Manson Real Estate Ltd Licensed (REAA 2008) Paula Standeven 0275 472 852 Simon Standeven 0274 304 691 Number 1 for sales for Ray White Ferrymead Jan-April 2017 /TheStandevens Three bedroom home with self contained flat Now priced at $780,000 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 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
