Pleasant, Sumner, Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour, Governors Bay, Akaroa Sumner’s marathon woman Disaster response group being set up in Redcliffs It was a hard 21.1km for Sumner Running Club member Lisa Brignull, but that didn’t stop her from winning the female category of the Hanmer Four Square half marathon on Saturday. Brignull, who lives in Mt Pleasant, completed the race in 1hr 32min, taking home the winning title for the first time. It’s not the first time she has competed in the race, usually managing a second or third placing. However, Brignull put more into her training regime to get the win. She has now set her sights on the Christchurch Marathon next month. •More sports, page 19 PHOTO: KARL VAN BEEK • By Caitlin Miles A DISASTER response group is being set up in Redcliffs to offer help and support during natural disasters. The Redcliffs Residents’ Association is in the process of establishing the Redcliffs Response and Resilience Team to get the community involved in the local emergency planning and preparedness in the case of a natural disaster. The group has been established as a result of the poorly planned tsunami response following the November 14 Kaikoura earthquake. It is currently in the very early stages of planning. There was a lot of confusion following the November 14 earthquake which struck just after midnight, and the Canterbury coast was put on a tsunami warning. Redcliffs residents were unsure if they needed to wait for the tsunami sirens, self-evacuate immediately or move to higher ground. The mixed messages from the city council and Civil Defence left residents confused and roads congested – with many not knowing where to go. Redcliffs Pharmacy owner Daryl Sayer, who is also the Sumner chief fire officer, said it was a “great idea” for the area – especially after the tsunami warning. •Turn to page 4 Driven...
