PAUL JOLLIFFE was 15 years and

three months old when he joined

the British Navy.

Two years later, he was on the

bombardment ship HMS Emerald

off the shore of Normandy,

France, about to play his part in

the biggest amphibious invasion

in history – the D-Day landings.

The guns started firing at

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News..................................... 3-11

PAUL JOLLIFFE was recognised

by the French at the weekend for

his part in the D-Day landings on

June 6, 1944.

On page 1 we report on Paul’s

memories of that day when he was

involved in the bombardment of

the German defences at Normandy.

With him during the interview

was his wife Ann, and there is a

nice little back story to how they

met – I’ll let you find out in the

article.

It’s great to see war veterans

continuing to get recognition. The

French are very good at remembering

those who helped drive enemies

from their country (Mururoa

and Rainbow Warrior aside).

Paul says he was just a small

cog in a very big (war) machine,

which is true. But without the Paul

Jolliffe’s of the war, the machine

wouldn’t have turned.

Skate ramp plan for old pub site

• By Sarla Donovan

SUMNER skateboarders are a

step closer to having their ramp

back.

On Monday, the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board approved the former

Marine Tavern site at 26 Nayland

St as the new

home for the ramp,

subject to resource

consent.

The temporary

Megan

Carpenter

skate ramp at 36

Wakefield Ave

was shut down on

February 10 when

it failed to comply with the city

plan’s noise standards.

Debate over the new site,

which was proposed by city

council staff, lasted for 90min.

Most of those attending were

supporters of Sumner Green

and Skate Group, which has

been working with the city

council to find a place for the

ramp while plans for a more

permanent skate park structure

are put together.

Group member Charlotte

Hudson said Sumner youth

were becoming “increasingly

disillusioned and disappointed”

with the time it had taken to

find a suitable site.

“The closure of the last seven

SKATE RAMP: Sumner’s temporary skate ramp will go on

the site of the former Marine Tavern if resource consent is

approved.

months for them shows a lack

of urgency and (risks) a loss of

faith in the process from youth,”

she said.

Two deputations were made

against the site. Among them

was Glen Brown, whose mother

lives 100m away and is the closest

resident to the Nayland St

site.

Mr Brown said she was

worried about the noise from

skateboarders using the wooden

ramp.

The sound from the ramp was

intrusive at its original Village

Green site and Mr Brown feared

the new location would be even

louder, as noise could echo off

nearby cliffs, he said.

Sumner Re Treat Apartments

owner Roydon Smart was concerned

at the proximity to busy

Wakefield Ave.

He also suggested that in the

summer months, skateboarders

wouldn’t go home after

the ramp was locked at 9pm.

Instead, they were likely to use

the new Sumner Centre car park

opposite the site, he said. This

would create noise issues for

guests at the Sumner Bay Motel

behind the car park, he said.

City council parks recreation

planner Megan Carpenter said

as part of the resource consent,

the site would have to comply

with noise restrictions.

Community board member

Darrell Latham asked city

council staff to seek confirmation

around the safety of the

proposed site from the Christchurch

Road Policing manager.

Miss Carpenter said city

council staff could also investigate

installing a guard rail at

the edge of the half-pipe ramp to

ensure safety.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton said it was

great to get the project moving

again.

In Brief

JETTY IDEAS WANTED

Ideas for the restoration of

the Governors Bay Jetty can

be submitted over the next

two weeks. A community

consultation event was held

on Sunday but the Jetty

Restoration Trust want to

hear from anybody unable to

make the event or with more

to say. The trust will compile

feedback before talking to key

stakeholders and drawing up

a brief with design engineers.

Email the trust at savethejetty@

gmail.com with your ideas for

the jetty.

SUMMIT RD FEEDBACK

Public consultation over

proposed traffic restrictions

on Summit Rd will close on

Friday. Anti-social road use

and vandalism have prompted

the city council to look at

restricting night time road

access to Summit Rd between

Rapaki and Gebbies Pass Rds

and Worsleys Rd. Proposed time

restrictions will prohibit vehicles

under 3500kg from 10pm-5am,

Thursday to Monday, and on

public holidays. The proposal

does not involve installing

physical barriers blocking access

to the road. Feedback can be

made at www.ccc.govt.nz and

closes on Friday at 4pm.

•From page 1

“I’ve never witnessed or heard

such a noise. Battleships and

rockets, everything that could

be fired was fired, Mr Jolliffe, 90,

recalled this week.

“Luckily we didn’t have to

communicate all that much – we

just got the orders and shouted

them out. It was highly organised.

We knew it was a big do.

But all we actually saw was the

plotting table.

“We had a bit of relief time

every now and then and popped

up on deck for a bit of fresh air.

There was a lot of debris and

there were bodies floating around

after the first day. After that first

period, the battleships really

did them in. It was Gold Beach

we were moored at, east of the

Americans at Omaha Beach.

“I didn’t feel scared. I was more

curious than anything.”

The junior seaman was downstairs

in the plotting room, using

data coming in from the spotter

planes to set the direction of the

guns.

Their job was to “shoot up the

Germans” so when the Allied

troops landed, they could get on

without too much bother.

“I was in a little compartment

down in the bowels of the ship.

it was a big do.’

The pair emigrated to

Christchurch in 1962 with their

two young sons, Geoffrey and

Nicholas, wanting to see some

other part of the world.

Mr Jolliffe worked at the National

Airways Corporation, which

later became Air Zealand. He and

Ann have lived in Lyttelton for the

past 38 years.

“I’m no hero,” Mr Jolliffe says,

reflecting on his medal. “I was

a small cog in a very big

machine.”

•On June 6, 1944, a huge

military machine embarked

on the invasion of Germanoccupied

France. Its target

was the coast of Normandy.

A vast armada of ships

carried more than 130,000

men. Ahead of them, planes

and gliders transported

another 23,000. This was

the biggest amphibious

landing in history, and its

aim was to end the war in

Europe and bring victory to

the Allies.

READY FOR ACTION: The HMS Emerald, a cruiser which carried

about 800 men.

•Over 425,000 Allied and

German troops were killed,

wounded or went missing

during the battle. This figure

includes over 209,000 Allied

casualties, with nearly

37,000 dead amongst the

ground forces and a further

16,714 deaths amongst

the Allied air forces.

•Paul Jolliffe was born in

Southhampton, England on

October 7, 1926.

•He enlisted with the

British forces on January 7,

1942, serving in the Royal

Navy during World War

2. He took part in naval

operations in south-east

Asia and north-west Europe,

including serving as part of

Operation Neptune on HMS

Emerald, a bombardment

ship for the D-Day landings.

•On Sunday, in his Lyttelton

home, he was awarded

the French Legion of Honour,

the highest award the

French Government can

bestow on a non-French

person, for the part he

played in D-Day. The Legion

of Honour is given to those

who have served France or

Permanent safety

barriers for Main Rd

date anticipated before the end

of August.

The barriers are part of pipe

There have also been temporary

in the past week.

Dr Latham said he was

pleased at the developments.

ANOTHER heritage landmark

is set to reopen in Lyttelton.

The Lyttelton Harbour Board

building, on the corner of

Norwich Quay and Oxford St

has undergone extensive renovations.

The building was damaged

in the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The upper storey, including

the parapet and the roof, had

to be removed.

Brothers Aaron, Tim and

David Donaldson’s property

company Water Qual bought

the building in November 2010.

Though unaffected by the

September 4, 2010, earthquake,

the damage wrought on February

22, 2011, has cost $2 million

to fix.

Builders started work on the

restoration in January last year,

and two weeks ago the leasing

sign went up.

Aaron Donaldson said the top

floor office space was already

spoken for by “port support

entities” and there were several

parties interested in the ground

floor space – suited to hospitality,

offices retail.

“We are confident of getting

tenants, Lyttelton is highly

sought after.”

RESTORED: Aaron Donaldson’s property company Water Qual

bought the historic harbour building in November 2010. It has

been repaired after it was badly damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

A lot of effort had gone into retaining

heritage features, he said.

“We’ve kept the wooden features

in the interior and outside,

a lot of work’s gone into pinning

and supporting the historic brick

facade, putting up eyebrows and

moulding over the windows.”

Mr Donaldson said it was

guidance and support from city

council heritage officer Brendan

Smyth and a $333,548 city council

heritage grant that had made

the restoration feasible.

Although retaining historic

features while also meeting city

council compliance standards

had been a costly and at times

“almost impossible” task, Mr

Donaldson said they had developed

a “marvellous partnership”

with the city council.

“It’s a crying shame that

some make the effort to build

sympathetically while others

build monstrosities,” he said,

citing the new Lyttelton Primary

School as an example.

“I think any government

department should build sympathetically.

(The school rebuild)

would have been a prime opportunity

to complement the

heritage character of the area.”

The Lyttelton Harbour Board

occupied 5 Norwich Quay

from 1880 until 1962. During

that time, the ground floor had

a reading room for visiting

captains and the first floor contained

the board room.

After moving out in 1962, it

was used first for storage by the

railways before being renovated

in the mid-1980s for commercial

use. In the years immediately

prior to the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, it was home to a

cafe and offices.

NEW AMENITY:

Sumner’s new

community

centre and

library is set to

open on August

Celebrations planned for

community centre opening

• By Sarla Donovan

SUMNER’S NEW

community centre and

library will officially open

on August 19.

Celebrations begin at

1.30pm with the library

opening from 3pm.

The $10 million Matuku

Takotako: Sumner Centre

houses a library, meeting

room and community

room on the ground floor

and a hall, activity rooms,

kitchen and museum on

the first floor.

As of last week, 14 groups

had confirmed bookings

to use the spaces. These

included yoga and fitness

classes, music, writing and

photography workshops,

as well as social groups for

seniors, under-fives, children

and young people.

Lester Wolfreys, city

council head of community

support, governance and

partnership, said the number

of bookings had exceeded

expectations, given

the facility was still several

weeks from opening.

Costs for individuals

and groups to book the

community hall and stage

or the activity rooms range

from $10.50 per hour for

not-for-profit community

programmes, to $92 per

hour for commercial

events.

City council staff will

manage the centre for the

first six months to ensure

the building is operating as

expected, Mr Wolfreys said.

“(We need) to understand

the dynamics

between different users and

how they’re using the facilities.

This will inform the

most appropriate partnership

management model.”

A 20-space car park is

being built behind the

centre on Nayland St.

Conservationist calls for

the protection of gullies

Richard

Suggate,

chairman of

the Diamond

Harbour

Community

Association, writes

about a recent Bay

Harbour News story

on the review of city

council-owned land

on Banks Peninsula

• By Sarla Donovan

NUMBERS OF titi, or

sooty shearwater, continue

to rise on Banks Peninsula.

The efforts of the Banks

Peninsula Conservation

Trust have seen numbers

of nesting adults double in

just a few years.

In 2010, there were 27

adult pairs nesting. Now

that figure is up to 50,

thanks in large part to a

predator-proof fence.

Formed in 2001, the trust

arose out of a project called

Wildside, which was set

up by farmer Mark Armstrong

25 years ago.

There was only one pair

of titi left in Canterbury

in 1995, so Mr Armstrong

built a chicken wire fence

around the remaining two

birds and also established

a dense defence of predator

traps.

This was enough to

ensure the pair’s survival

and six years later the first

chick fledged.

By 2009, there were 21

adult pairs nesting and

The article on July 19

refers to the city council

consulting with the Banks

Peninsula Community

Board on the sale of city

council freehold land in

Diamond Harbour. The

most significant area is the

land between the existing

housing and Bay View Rd,

between Te Papau Cres and

Hunters Rd.

This 38ha block was

bought many years ago by

an earlier city council to

provide land for housing.

In recent years, a group of

local conservationists have

started a native plant restoration

programme in two

of the gullies that bisect the

property (Morgan’s and

Sam’s). The restoration in

Morgan’s Gully has been

supported by an Environment

Canterbury Immediate

Steps grant. In addition,

the local community has

built a path linking Waipapa

Ave and Diamond

Harbour School to provide

off-road access behind the

township.

During the District Plan

process, the Diamond

Harbour Community Association

and Paula Smith

unsuccessfully sought the

protection of the three

gullies that run through

the area.

The hearing panel rejected

initial submissions

because they were lodged

at the ‘wrong’ stage in the

process. A subsequent proposal

backed by city council

planners for the three

gullies to be reserved from

housing in any subdivision

was also rejected by the

panel. Direct approaches

to the city council for the

gullies to be reserved were

rejected by the property

section, as it would reduce

the value of any sale of the

land.

The community would

like assurances from the

city council that any sale of

the land results in the three

gullies being reserved, and

one chick fledging. The

following year, 27 adult

that the walking access

which has been created

will be retained in public

ownership. There are many

other matters that also

need to be considered,

including roading access,

provision of amenities and

services, and the current

use of the land for back access

to existing properties.

A careful and thorough

community consultation

process is required.

The current valuation of

$1.4 million is well below

its (goldmine) market

value. Considering the

number of sections that

can be created from the

land, it would be shortterm

folly for it to be

disposed to one developer

who, over many years, can

make a fortune from its

subdivision and sale. The

city council would achieve

greater return on its asset if

it sells it over time in three

distinct blocks (the three

ridges) as demand grows

for additional housing.

As for the use of funds

from any sale, it would be

good to see them committed

to purchasing key

pieces of coastal land in the

harbour basin to improve

public access to beaches,

or spent on providing for a

community facility on the

Godley House site.

Banks Peninsula’s volcanic soil

They may be small,

but Banks Peninsula

vineyards are starting

to show they can

match it with the

big players. Bridget

Rutherford reports

TUCKED INTO the hillside in

Charteris Bay is a little vineyard

– a vineyard that’s making a

name for itself.

But it’s not the only one.

What started as a hobby has

turned into success for Neil

and Jill Pattinson, with their

vineyard Whistling Buoy taking

out the top award at this year’s

Wines of Canterbury awards.

Their Whistling Buoy Kokolo

Pinot Noir 2015 won the game

trophy and a gold medal.

It was later named champion

wine.

Its Kokolo Chardonnay 2015

and Kokolo Pinot Noir 2016 also

earned bronze medals.

Dr Pattinson, who is president

of Wines of Canterbury, said

there are four main vineyards

that sit within the craters of

Lyttelton and Akaroa harbours –

and all were proving their worth.

He said Banks Peninsula was

an emerging sub-wine region.

But he said it was a given

the area should produce nice

wines – the very earliest plantings

in New Zealand were in

Akaroa in 1840 when the French

settlers arrived.

“What’s unique about Banks

Peninsula is the soils, the aspect,

particularly north-facing

slopes and basically being close

to large bodies of water being

Akaroa and Lyttelton harbours,

which help mitigate the ultraextremes.”

He said the sea air didn’t seem

to have any impact on the wine

and they rarely suffered frosts.

and Neil Pattinson prune the

Akaroa’s Meniscus Wines had

success at the same awards.

For the second year in a row,

its 2015 pinot noir won the best

pairing wine with lamb and got a

silver medal. Its 2016 riesling and

2016 pinot noir also got bronze

medals.

Owner David Epstein said they

were thrilled, especially with the

lamb trophy.

He said Banks Peninsula wines

had certain characteristics that

were starting to be recognised.

“It just shows there must be

something special in the terroir

here in the ground that is very

good for the grapes and the

growth,” he said.

“The volcanic soil that exists

here from years back is giving a

special character.”

They produce pinot noir,

riesling and pinot gris from the

vines on the 2.4ha block which

sits on the south edge of Akaroa.

They make between 4000-6000

bottles each year.

Mr Epstein said all the grapes

are picked by hand before being

sent to Waipara to be produced.

Major upgrade to Russley Road/Memorial Avenue intersection

The Russley Road/Memorial Avenue temporary roundabout will be removed

in early August and replaced with a new intersection with traffic lights.

EXPECT

DELAYS

4-6 AUG

The permanent change means traffic will be able to

travel to and from Christchurch International

Airport, under the new Gateway Bridge, for the first

time. It will also allow the project team to complete

the new road on top of the bridge, bringing them a

step closer to completing the upgrade.

New road signage

People travelling through the intersection will

need to pay close attention to the new signage

to ensure their vehicle is in the right lane.

Please be courteous to other drivers who will

also be getting used to the change.

Lengthy delays at Russley Road/Memorial Avenue intersection

While this is an exciting milestone there will be delays

of up to 20 minutes while the changes take place on

4-6 August.

makes for great winemaking

He and his wife Gay bought

the vineyard, formerly known

as Vanstone Estate, and Crater

Rim, at the end of 2008 and

moved over from Australia.

Previously, it was owned by

Akaroa businessman Graham

Vanstone, who disappeared

without a trace in September

1999, before his first vintage was

picked.

After his disappearance, Mr

Vanstone’s family rallied to

produce Vanstone Estate’s wine

before leasing the vineyard. They

then sold to the Epsteins.

Mr Vanstone was never found.

Police say his missing person file

has been referred to the coroner,

who will make a ruling on his

death.

“It’s just one of the mysteries of

SPECTACULAR:

At Whistling

Buoy, sheep

are used to

the grass and

leaves, while

Meniscus Wines

looks out over

Akaroa Harbour.

Akaroa,” Mr Epstein said.

The Epsteins also run a tasting

lounge for their wines on Rue

Lavaud, but come October, they

will open it on site at Meniscus.

He hoped Banks Peninsula

would become recognised as a

fine wine growing area.

The Pattinsons planted grapes

into their 2023 sq m Charteris

Bay property in the early 2000s.

They went for the pinot noir

vines to match the clay-based

soil.

The name, Whistling Buoy,

was derived from the marker

buoy that used to direct vessels

into Lyttelton Harbour.

Dr Pattinson said originally it

was a hobby, but when they produced

their first vintage in 2005

and 2006, they knew they were

onto something.

So when a neighbouring property,

Kokolo, came up for sale at

Teddington about four and a half

years ago, they decided to buy it.

The 4ha site was already planted

with pinot noir, chardonnay,

and pinot meunier grapes, which

produced wine that was exported

to Japanese restaurant chains.

Dr Pattinson said they ripped

out the pinot meunier vines to

focus on the other two.

The pinot noir grapes at

Kokolo are also used to produce

Whistling Buoy’s rose.

All the grapes are sent to Greystone

Wines in Waipara to be

produced, but Dr Pattinson said

they had a lot of input into the

winemaking process.

Because of the sloping hills

the vines are planted on, and the

small distance between each,

everything is done by hand –

with a little aid.

Their next door neighbour,

Speaker of the House David

Carter, often brought his sheep

into the vineyard during leaf

plucking to maintain the grass

and leaves.

Whistling Buoy viticulturist

Cliff Wood is into his fourth

season at Whistling Buoy. Last

week, he was out pruning and

tying down the vines before they

begin to grow again.

“It’s pretty labour intensive.”

Dr Pattinson said they knew

the 2015 pinot noir had all the

right elements – warm weather,

low disease pressure, good

vineyard management and good

fruit.

“This particular wine’s had 10

months on oak and there’s new

oak in that not just old oak.”

But this year they weren’t so

lucky.

They didn’t harvest because

it was too wet for the grapes to

ripen.

“So in the end, we just had to

walk away from it, which is quite

a big hit.”

But it won’t hamper the wine

stocks at supermarkets and local

restaurants.

“We’ve got the 2015 and the

2016 has just been released, so

we’ve still got plenty of wine.

I’d need to sell three cases of

wine a day to sell what we produce.”

Neil Pattinson

Making good wine a labour of love

Neil Pattinson and his wife Jill planted grapes on their

Charteris Bay property to see if they could make nice

wine. Now, more than 10 years on, Bridget Rutherford

speaks to him about producing award-winning wines

under the Whistling Buoy label

Whistling Buoy’s 2015 pinot

noir was named champion wine

at the Wines of Canterbury

awards. Were you expecting it?

Of course (laughs). I’m very

pleasantly surprised, we knew it

was a good wine. I was absolutely

thrilled we got a gold medal,

then actually won best match

with game so, to me, that was

reward enough. But to actually

then be named champion wine

of the competition at the very

end, that’s just the icing on the

cake.

What do you think made this

wine so good?

I think it’s a vintage, so it was a

really good year and the disease

pressure was relatively low. It was

also warm so it had all the right

elements. Obviously, you’ve still

got to put in a lot of viticulture

to manage the site. You’ve got to

get good air flow and good light

penetration. So I think it was

good vineyard management, it

was a good vintage, and then

taking really good fruit and

turning it into really exquisite pinot

noir. It’s all the elements that

make a really good wine. Our

winemaking is done up at Greystone

in Waipara, so we don’t

do it on site. So at harvest point,

it’s shipped up to Greystone. But

we do have lots of input on the

style we want and the amount of

oak and oak exposure and that

comes to the sorting of the fruit

and the whole process. It’s not

hands-off. This particular wine

has had 10 months on oak and

there’s new oak in that not just

old oak.

It’s the second year a wine

from Banks Peninsula has

taken out the award, isn’t it?

We got second last year.

Meniscus Wines in Akaroa were

the top pinot noir. The three top

pinot noirs got the top three in

that category – there was Meniscus,

Tussock Hill and ourselves.

Ours was the top chardonnay

last year. I think that’s the thing

about the peninsula, because

it’s on clay-based soil and pinot

noir does particularly well and

chardonnay grape does as well. If

you’re going to pick wine varieties

Banks Peninsula exemplifies,

it would be pinot noir, pinot gris

and chardonnay.

And being so close to the

water in Lyttelton Harbour, do

you still get any frosts?

We do right in the middle

of winter, but not during the

important growing season or the

early start to the year. In places

like Waipara and central plains,

you’ve got to have frost protection

and we don’t have to bother

with that. We have planted in

that French-style, the spaces

between vines and rows are quite

small. So it does mean it’s very

hard to mechanise and also we’re

on sloping sites, everything’s

SUCCESS:

HUNTER

done by hand. So part of that

is you’re in the vineyard all the

time, you’re constantly monitoring,

you’re constantly tuning, so

it’s a bit labour intensive, but it

means that labour of love transforms

into really good quality

fruit.

Our People

‘You don’t want to be so large you lose your focus’

•From page 13

What were you doing before

you decided to put grapes in?

I’m a clinical biochemist by

training, so I worked at the

hospital for about 14 years. Ivan

Donaldson was starting up

Pegasus Bay at the time, I also

worked with a gastroenterologist

– Bruce Chapman – and they

own Terrace Edge; they put in

some olives and grapes later on.

So every medical conference

you go to – a lot are overseas

in beautiful places like France,

Switzerland and Germany – then

obviously part in parcel with

that are the evening dinners and

concerts and, of course, they’re

all served with beautiful wine.

You couldn’t not have an interest

in wine.

When did you decide to put in

grapes?

We had about 2ha of land at

Charteris Bay and we had sheep.

We’d gone through the typical

lifestyle block, so we started with

sheep, then we had a goat, and

our daughter had a pony. Then I

thought, why not put vines in?

Did you ever think you would

get to this point where you have

award-winning wines?

Yes and no. The initial reality

was just: Can we grow some good

grapes and produce good wine,

mainly for our own consumption

LOCAL: The grapes for Whistling Buoy’s awardwinning

2015 pinot noir were grown at the Kokolo

site, which overlooks Lyttelton Harbour.

and friends and family? But

certainly, when you produce wine

you want it to be really good,

you don’t want people thinking,

oh, Neil’s bringing out his home

brew again. I didn’t want to

make rubbish wine, we did at

that time contract a really good

winemaker – Grant Whelan

from Kaituna Valley. So basically,

it was good grapes and a really

good winemaker and the rest is

history.

What do your kids do?

Tony is in Coolangatta (Gold

Coast). He’s just set up a pizzeria.

He’s been over there for six

or seven years.

He started off in

Tasmania with a

restaurant called

Restaurant Red,

then he came to

Brisbane and met his partner

and now they’re in Coolangatta.

They are going to have our wine

at the restaurant. Our daughter

Kate is trained as a teacher, and

she’s working at Manuwera

Institute of Technology as a

departmental manager. And our

other son Chris is a winemaker.

He’s now working for Sherwood

Estate in Waipara, I’m wanting

him to take

charge of the half

acre.

So before you

turned your focus

to Whistling Buoy,

where else had you

been working?

After the

hospital, I joined

a biotechnology

company called

Life Technologies,

then I became

chief executive

of Canterbury

Scientific. I resigned

from that a year

ago to focus on

building the brand

and establishing a sales

network for Whistling

Buoy. But I chair the

board of a start up

biotech company called

AuramerBio out of Victoria

University. And I’ve been

doing some consulting work

at Canterbury University for

the Canterbury Development

Corp. I’m just about to start a

job at ChristchurchNZ as its

senior adviser of innovation and

commercialisation.

You mentioned everything is

done by hand. Do you have a bit

of help to pick the grapes?

It’s a social occasion. Here at

Kokolo, the picking, it’s three

consecutive days. We have about

25 people and we fill about 10 big

400kg bins.

I hear your wife Jill does a lot

of maintenance around here?

She has her own mower, she

gets upset if I jump on it. But we

do use sheep up on the vineyard,

I do use the mulching mower, but

we have sheep as well.

Do the sheep damage the

vines at all?

You’ve got to be careful. There’s

nothing on the vines at the

moment so they’ll just chew up

the grass. But during the season,

you don’t want them on bud set,

the only time you really bring

them in is when you want to leaf

pluck so when you’ve got fruit

set, but the berries are really hard

and green. The leaves are green

they will probably have a crack

at one or two bunches but they’ll

think that’s rubbish.

Do you hope to expand

Whistling Buoy?

If we can successfully establish

the brand and get a really good

route to market then, yes, it

would certainly be quite nice

to build it. But there’s a balance

there, too, you don’t want to be so

large you lose your focus. Being

boutique is good.

Nel plans to make it in red and black

From metro

MVP to

Mitre 10 Cup

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER’S DYLAN Nel will

now turn his attention to proving

himself in a red and black jersey

after dominating in the division

one metro competition.

Nel, 25, not only won this

year’s MVP medal race, he

completely dominated it,

winning by the largest margin

in the award’s history. The South

African No 8 finished with 27

points, 11 ahead of University No

8 Brad Hemopo in second.

The Sumner player also

finished as the leading try scorer

in the competition with 16, four

more than any other player.

“It’s all guns blazing, the

body’s feeling good. I just want

to take the momentum from the

club season into the Mitre 10

Cup,” said Nel.

Nel is expected to be part of

the Canterbury squad which

will defend the Ranfurly Shield

against Mid-Canterbury in

Ashburton on Friday. He started

at No 8 and scored a try for

Canterbury in their 71-5 win

over Wanganui at AMI Stadium

in June.

He has already been part of

the Crusaders environment

after being called into the

squad earlier this year as injury

replacement for Kieran Read.

His long term goal is to secure

a permanent position in the top

flight, something he would like

to do in his adopted home, rather

than in South Africa.

“Definitely the Crusaders,

one hundred percent. The

environment in that team is

amazing,” said Nel.

While has Nel captured plenty

of personal accolades, his club

were unlucky not to finish the

season with silverware.

A penalty kick on full-time

was the only thing which

separated Sumner from New

Brighton in their 17-19 plate final

loss at Rawhiti Domain.

New Brighton held a 16-10

advantage late in the game before

a drama-filled final five minutes.

“We ended up going down

their end and getting a penalty

try to go a point ahead with only

a couple of minutes left,” said

Sumner coach Martin Dodgson.

“They kicked off, we tried to

hold on to the ball in our own

half and then we conceded a

penalty. The guy slotted it and

that was full-time.”

Dodgson described the

team’s overall play as a one of

their poorer days at the office.

However, with their two tries

being penalty tries, there was one

highlight for Sumner.

“Our scrum was phenomenal,”

SPORTS

NEXT STEP: Dylan Nel earned his second cap for Canterbury last month and is hopeful of becoming a regular in this year’s Mitre

10 Cup squad. Sumner first-five Nik Cumming (right) also had a great club season as the metro competition’s second highest point

scorer with 151.

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER AND ROZELLE MAY

said Dodgson.

The usually robust New

Brighton pack was dominated

throughout, resulting in referee

Blair Barclay awarding the two

penalty tries at scrum time.

Like his team, Sumner first-five

Nik Cumming came within a

whisker of a season to remember,

finishing second in the leading

points scorer race with 151. He

finished just one point behind

Christchurch’s Dan Dorgan.

Both Tim Wraight and Ché Vincent live in the Motueka region in the top of the

South Island, an area of diverse landscapes and environments from which to

draw inspiration for their work.

Tim’s carved wooden work for ‘Changing Stories’ exhibition explores the

traditions associated with the reverence given to relics and remains, using

the cultural practices of making intricate containers that different cultures

fashion to hold these precious objects, Maori wakahuia (treasure boxes)

and wakatupapaku (bone boxes) and European reliquaries which held the

bones of saints, are the starting point for these pieces. Found remains of

creatures and objects from the natural environment in his home area. Tim

has constructed stories around fictional and whimsical; taking an object and

giving it a new narrative and honouring its previous existence.

Ché’s work for this exhibition is formed by his

passion for botany and natural processes;

exploring the patterns created by plant forms

by the way water changes and repeats a flow

pattern by decay and renewal. He uses recycled

copper panels through a process of serendipitous

experimentation. Ché has developed a fluid and

intuitive approach and has developed methods of

Experience expert

dental care

Six fabulous years and still going strong!

The team of Fendalton Dental Surgery

takes this opportunity to thank their

loyal patients, the supportive Canterbury

dental fraternity and the wonderful local

community. They celebrate yet another

glorious anniversary after being forced

to relocate to this premises after the

earthquakes in 2011. It used to be called

Cambridge Dental Surgery while they

were in the CBD but since moving to this

lovely Fendalton suburb in July 2011.

Fendalton Dental Surgery, on the

high profile corner of Idris & Glandovey

Roads has been looking after the dental

needs of the local community as well

as the wider Christchurch area since

2011. Dentists Keith Chiang and Zohnia

McNeill and Oral Health Therapist, Amy

Lee offer a complete range of dental

and oral care services, all in a very calm

and relaxed environment. Supporting

them are dental nurses Simone and Jola

and the ever-efficient highly organised

practice manager, Aysha who bring with

them their very own style and range of

competencies in each and every aspect.

“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, Impacted

wisdom teeth, surgical extractions,

Placement of 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.

Amy Lee, our Oral Therapist and

Hygienist specialises in the overall

maintenance of healthy teeth and gums.

She educates her patients on how to look

The team at Fendalton Dental Surgery

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 and can be

a social stigma with bad breath, while

research also indicates that gum disease

or otherwise called Gingivitis 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 a state-of-the-art 3D CT scanner,

which will be used to scan jaws, enabling

the dentists to give a better diagnosis of

clients’ dental problems.

The Fendalton Dental Team invites

you and new patients to visit their

practice and experience Expert Care as

being one of their valued patients. 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 for an

appointment, or simply call in.

THE RYMAN HEALTHCARE SEASON OF

Juliet

A NEW BALLET

by Francesco Ventriglia

Isaac Theatre Royal

25 – 26 August

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR: PATRICIA BARKER


FALL IN LOVE

THIS WINTER

WITH THE ROYAL

NEW ZEALAND

BALLET’S

W O R L D

PREMIERE OF

R O M E O A N D

JULIET

A sunlit piazza, the candlelit corner of

a noble ballroom, a moonlit balcony…

when young lovers meet, the world is

stilled… then changed forever.

Italian choreographer Francesco Ventriglia creates

a new production of Shakespeare’s great love story,

especially for the Royal New Zealand Ballet. This

brand new ballet, with exquisite sets and costumes

by Oscar-winning designer James Acheson (The Last

Emperor, Dangerous Liaisons) brings to life all of

the splendour and seduction of Renaissance Verona,

swept up in Prokofiev’s exhilarating, passionate

score. Join us as we follow the Montagues and

Capulets in Shakespeare’s original tale of two starcrossed

lovers though desire, struggle and tragedy.

Sure to be the highlight of the 2017 arts calendar

this is a production not to be missed.

CHOREOGRAPHY / FRANCESCO VENTRIGLIA

COSTUME & SET DESIGN / JAMES ACHESON

MUSIC / SERGEI PROKOFIEV

LIGHTING DESIGN / JON BUSWELL

DRAMATURG / MARIO MATTIA GIORGETTI

CHOREOGRAPHIC ASSISTANT / GILLIAN WHITTINGHAM

CONDUCTOR / HAMISH MCKEICH

ACCOMPANIED BY THE CSO

The RNZB is absolutely thrilled to have the musicians

of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra joining

us once again for our Christchurch performances.

Christchurch born Hamish McKeich will conduct as

the CSO brings Prokofiev’s beautiful ballet score

to life, filling the Isaac Theatre Royal with the

unbeatable sound of live orchestral music.

Choreographer Francesco Ventriglia, dancer Madeleine

Graham and Leading Guest Artist Sir Jon Trimmer at

Ryman Healthcare’s Anthony Wilding village.

Ryman Healthcare is thrilled to once again

be associated with the creation of a major

production for the Royal New Zealand Ballet.

Ryman Chief Executive Gordon MacLeod said

residents and staff were planning a whole

lot of Romeo and Juliet-themed events to

celebrate the season.

“We’re delighted to be able to support the

RNZB’s production of Romeo and Juliet. We

think our residents – and the rest of New

Zealand – are in for a real treat. Our ballet

company is a national treasure and it is a

pleasure to be able to support the company

as they take their performance nationwide.’’

Mr MacLeod said staff at Ryman’s 30 villages

had a whole lot of events lined up to make

sure everyone gets into the swing of things.

Activities planned include balcony decorating

competitions, a grand masquerade ball in

the style of the Capulet house, Shakespeare

quizzes and residents would be encouraged

to recount their own memories of young

romance.

As part of the partnership with RNZB

members of the company visit Ryman’s

villages to meet residents unable to get out

to the performances.

“Romeo and Juliet is doubly exciting because

Madeleine Graham – who we have sponsored

for a number of years – is dancing the role of

Juliet! We feel like she’s part of the family.’’
