Izzy Morritt, 12 and Lucy Rule, 13, have designed and made canvas bags they both plan to sell to promote the use of reusable bags instead of plastic bags. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER No more plastic bags • By Caitlin Miles SAVE THE ocean is the message from two Sumner School pupils who want to see plastic bags banned from supermarkets and daily life. As part of a school project Izzy Morritt, 12, and Lucy Rule, 13, had to choose an environmental issue they felt passionately about – for them it was helping reduce the number of plastic bags in favour of reusable ones. The pair said they know the damage plastic bags have on the ocean, animals and the environment, and they want to do something to reduce the problem. “It’s a big environmental problem for Sumner and the rest of the world and the animals, we want to lower the problem,” Lucy said. • Turn to page 9 • By Caitlin Miles A MYSTERY $100,000 donation could see the Scarborough Park upgrade fast-tracked. Upgrades were originally scheduled for the playground over this year and next, but the city council pushed the revamp back until 2019/2020 due to a lack of funding. The Linwood-Central- Heathcote Community Board requested the funding be reinstated for 2017/2018 in a submission to the Annual Plan. Now the city council plans to reinstate the funding – as long as it receives a private donation of $100,000 in the first quarter of 2017/2018. The city council would not release the name of the private donor ‘under a subject of confidence’. Sumner Community Residents’ Association secretary, Susan Kaschula ​was amazed by the kindness and said it was “very positive news” for the area. She was not aware of it until told by Bay Harbour News. “I’m very happy to hear that. It’s really good to hear, it needs an upgrade it’s (the equipment) out of date,” Ms Kaschula said. • Turn to page 9 We’ve been trusted to look after hundreds of properties all over Christchurch.
