No extra

police to

enforce

proposed

Summit Rd

restrictions

• By Sarla Donovan

PLANS TO put the brakes on

boy racers on the Summit Rd are

likely to fail because police won’t

have the resources to enforce new

rules.

Police have confirmed there

won’t be any extra police to

enforce proposed night-time

restrictions on Summit Rd.

Senior Sergeant Kelly Larsen

told Bay Harbour News police had

to send staff where they were most

needed.

“We have finite resources and

have to determine where to deploy

staff. Most fatal accidents are on

highways and rural open roads. In

terms of risk, that’s where there is

most need.”

Senior Sergeant Larson said

the primary role of police was the

preservation of life.

The city council has proposed to

restrict night-time road access to

Summit Rd and Worsleys Rd after

concerns about anti-social road

use, safety, damage, vandalism,

fire and rubbish.

The time restrictions would

prohibit vehicles under 3500kg

between 10pm to 5am, Thursday to

Monday, and on public holidays.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News.......................3-8, 11-14

THERE WAS one very happy chap

at the Sumner Rugby Club awards

on Friday night – Johnny Wood.

Life membership was bestowed

on Woody, and as you will see

from our coverage (pages 1, 5), it

came right out of the blue.

Woody has been part of the club

for more than 20 years, and is

one of those characters every club

needs.

He leads the singing on a Saturday

and enjoys the social side of

rugby at Sumner.

Woody, 41, has been involved

with the club since the mid-90s

while he was at Shirley Boys’ High

School.

“We went down after school

and I’ve never looked back,” said

Woody.

“It’s very family-orientated, a

nice small community and I just

love that.”

And that sums up Sumner

rugby.

Harbour land could be sold

• By Sarla Donovan

THERE ARE no guarantees

a valuable piece of land in

Diamond Harbour won’t be

sold as part of a city council

property review.

The land contains two gullies

that have been extensively

planted by community groups,

along with a footpath linking

Diamond Harbour School and

Waipapa

Ave which

provides offroad

access

behind the

township.

Diamond

Harbour

Community

Andrew Turner

Association

chairman

Richard

Suggate last week called for

assurances Morgan’s Gully and

Sam’s Gully be reserved and

walking access retained should

there be any sale of the land.

Previous attempts at having

the gullies reserved have been

rejected by the city council.

It was purchased some years

ago to provide land for housing.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member and city council

Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner

said he couldn’t give assurances

as the land was subject to a

city council decision-making

process.

However, he would not be

supporting the sale of any land

which had value and use to the

community, he said.

In the event a property was

to be sold but there were areas

of community value, the city

council could put conditions

on the sale, such as easements

guaranteeing public access.

Board chairwoman Christine

Wilson said she was personally

in favour of the land being kept

in the community.

Board member Paul McLister

said if there was a genuine need

for housing in Diamond Harbour,

it might make sense to

sell it, but there were currently

subdivisions which weren’t full.

“I’m always reluctant to see

alienation of public land to private

ownership. It’s a slippery

slope,” Mr McLister said.

NATIVE

PLANTING:

Residents

are calling

for Morgan’s

Gully to be

protected if

land it sits on

is sold.

The property review process

will take six months, but that

won’t start until the community

board has held a workshop on

the issue.

Almost 30 properties across

Banks Peninsula, with a value

of close to $6m, were up for

review.

There would be a “strong

focus” from the board on

establishing present or

potential community use, Cr

Turner said.

In Brief

LPC CONSENT APPEALED

Ngāi Tahu has lodged an appeal

against resource consents granted

last month allowing Lyttelton Port

Company to deepen the harbour

channel, enabling larger ships to

enter the port. The appeal, based

on environmental and cultural

concerns, is supported by the

Surfbreak Protection Society.

WHARF SOLUTIONS

Solutions to the issue of nonauthorised

structures and

improvements on Akaroa wharf

will be presented by city council

staff at the next Banks Peninsula

Community Board meeting on

August 14. The board resolved in

June to require non-authorised

structures and furnishings to be

removed from the city councilowned

part of the wharf unless an

acceptable negotiated settlement

could be brought back for board

approval.

CLARIFICATION

Last week’s Bay Harbour News

included an article about Lyttelton

resident Paul Jolliffe receiving

the French Legion of Honour for

the part he played in the D-Day

landings at Normandy, France. It

should have also said the medal was

presented to Mr Jolliffe in his home

by Martine Marshall-Durieux,

the French Honorary Consul in

Christchurch, on behalf of the

French Ambassador Madame Jean

Blanc-Risler.

No extra police on Summit Rd

•From page 1

Governors Bay writer Rosie

Belton believes the measures won’t

reduce anti-social behaviour

because there won’t be enough staff

to police them.

“Nobody’s going

to take any

notice. It boils

down to a Government

issue.

Give us more

police resources.

Staff are overwhelmed,

no

matter how hard

Rosie Belton or well-meaning

they are.”

Ms Larsen said while she sympathised

with Ms Belton’s concerns,

the city council’s proposal was “the

best solution we can offer. It might

have an impact and has the least

negative effect.”

She said there was an “unrelenting”

demand for police services

and there was no guarantee more

resources would result in extra

policing of the Summit Rd, due to

demands from other areas.

“Personally, I’m not sure (the

restrictions) will achieve what

we want it to. There’s nothing

to stop them using alternative

routes.”

But she said the option of putting

a barrier across the road

DAMAGE: Skid marks where boy racers have congregated on

Summit Rd.

would negatively impact on people

who had a valid reason for accessing

the area, such as photographers

and cyclists.

“It’s trying to find a compromise.

It’s a really challenging issue and

we’re trying to work cooperatively.”

She said if the proposal goes

ahead, there might be extra police

in the area initially, to educate

drivers about the changes.

Ms Belton said she wasn’t surprised

to hear there wouldn’t be

extra policing.

“It’s exactly what I would have

imagined. How can they? They

don’t have the resources. You have

to ask yourself, what’s this exercise

about? For many years, people

have tried to (solve this problem).

Huge resources have gone into this

city council proposal and where

does it end up?”

The city council is currently

seeking feedback on the proposed

night-time traffic prohibitions

on Summit Rd. Go to the city

council’s website www.ccc.govt.nz

before August 25. More than 750

submissions have been received so

far.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think traffic restrictions will

solve the problems on Summit

Rd? Should a barrier have

been one of the options?

Pavement repairs

hit a brick wall

• By Sarla Donovan

REPAIRS TO damaged pavers

in Akaroa have still not been

completed, in spite of city

council promises they’d be

fixed by the end of July.

Resident Sue Stewart tripped

over cracked and

uneven tiles in

Beach Rd back

in May.

The city council

undertook

to fix them and

Sue

contractors

have started the

repairs but they

Stewart

remain unfinished.

Deputy mayor and Banks

Peninsula Community Board

member Andrew Turner told

Bay Harbour News on July 4

that contractors were waiting

on a series of fine days before

the work could resume, and

then it would be completed

within a week.

Ms Stewart said on Monday

they had dug up around the

trees and lifted the “offending”

concrete but work had

“stalled” a fortnight ago.

“They started off with great

gusto.”

City council road maintenance

manager Mark Pinner

said after removing the unsafe

pavers and placing topsoil, city

council arborists assessed the

tree roots to determine the

best solution to maintain tree

health and provide a “safe and

useable” surface around the

trees that would limit potential

trip hazards.

“A gravel, resin-based material

will be used to form a flexible

surface that will require

minimal maintenance, and

this work will be done as soon

as possible,” said Mr Pinner.

Ms Stewart said it was important

the job was finished,

as all it would take would be

for some “poncy American”

to take a tumble and the city

council would be sued.

Woody gets life membership

• By Gordon Findlater

WHEN SUMNER win they

sing.

For more than 20 years

Johnny Wood has been the

man leading the Wave’s victory

anthem and on Saturday he was

made a life member at the rugby

club.

Wood, 41, has been involved

with the club since the mid-90s

while he was at Shirley Boys’

High School.

“We went down after school

and I’ve never looked back,” said

Wood.

“It’s very family-orientated, a

nice small community and I just

love that.”

The diehard Wave supporter

has been part of management

for the clubs’ teams over the

years and has recently started

helping with the coaching of a

junior side. However, the recognition

for his life membership

came from his dedication to

embodying the Sumner culture.

“I’m just going down to have

a drink with my mates. To be

recognised for something like

that is incredible. They say I

respect the culture and maybe I

do,” said Wood.

Former team manager Tim

Cronin was on hand to give a

speech at the awards evening

HONOURED: Johnny Wood, has been made a life member of

the Sumner Rugby Club.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

and reflected on Wood’s dedication

to the club over the years.

“He does everything from getting

gear to the ground, turning

up to training early to help the

kickers practice

and running water

on a Saturday,” said

Cronin.

“He’s really

become a players’

confidant and he’s a really good

personality around the club.”

The new life member was

bought to tears by the occasion

‘When we win we sing,

and when we lose we

booze.’ – Johnny Wood

on Friday night which was kept

a surprise.

“I absolutely had no idea.

There were so many of my

friends there and I should have

clicked,” said

Wood.

“My sister

came down

from Wellington

and

my mum was there as well, that

meant the world to me.”

In his early days the Sumner

premier team played in division

two and at one stage were

relegated to division three.

“It was never about the rugby

back in the day. We weren’t that

good and we just liked having a

good time with our mates,” said

Wood.

One of Wood’s favourite

memories over the years is when

Sumner were promoted from division

two into the division one

competition at the end of 2009.

“Going up to division one and

proving everyone wrong was

great. I still like the fact that we

do that now. There are still clubs

out there that don’t think we

should be up there,” said Wood.

He has played for Sumner

but may hold the record for the

club’s shortest playing career.

Wood came on as a substitute

at halfback for the division two

side in the mid-90s and played

the final 5min against Marist

Albion. He plans to keep leading

the division one side in song for

seasons to come, giving the boys

an extra reason to achieve victory

every Saturday.

“When we win we sing, and

when we lose we booze,” said

Wood.

“I love getting into the changing

room to lead that song, the

boys get into it and it’s always a

great feeling.”

Council

takes

ownership

of 17

properties

SEVENTEEN properties along

the Sumner-Lyttelton corridor,

acquired by the Crown as part of

the residential red zone recovery,

have now been transferred to city

council ownership.

“The transfer marks another

milestone in the repair and regeneration

of the Port Hills area,”

Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Nicky

Wagner said.

The properties, on Wakefield

Ave, Nayland St, Clifton Tce,

Main Rd and Balmoral Lane,

were red-zoned following the

February 22, 2011, earthquakes.

Extensive rock fall mitigation

has been done to them, including

the installation of bunds and barriers

to protect the roads below,

and nearby properties.

One property, at 8A Balmoral

Lane, incorporated Moa Bone

Cave – an archaeological site.

The city council will be responsible

for future use and maintenance

of the land.

RESTORED: The

decorative finial missing

from the Akaroa

Courthouse’s front gable

since a fire in 1962 has

been replicated and put

back. ​

Courthouse decoration

back 55 years after fire

KEEN OBSERVERS may

notice a new addition to

the Akaroa Courthouse.

The decorative finial

missing from the historic

building’s front gable for

more than 55 years has

been replicated and put

back.

The finial was returned

as part of the recent

work done to restore

the building and fix the

damage caused by the

earthquakes.

The original was burnt

when the courthouse

almost caught alight in

January 1962 when a fire

at the Metropole Hotel

threatened to spread to

neighbouring properties.

“It’s great to see the

finial restored and the

courthouse looking as it

would have when it was

originally built,’’ said

Akaroa Museum director

Lynda Wallace.

“The courthouse is

one of Akaroa’s largest

remaining 19th century

public buildings and a lot

of work has been put in

over the past 12 months

to ensure its preservation.

We’re thrilled with the

result and are pleased to

be able to again welcome

visitors through its doors,’’

Ms Wallace said.

The courthouse dates

back to 1880 and was used

for hearings until 1979.

It has been part of

Akaroa Museum since

1990. In recent years, it has

been used by the museum

to screen an audio-visual

presentation on Akaroa to

visitors.

New life green cafe

• By Sarla Donovan

ORTON BRADLEY Park’s

cafe will reopen in October

and the new managers hope to

involve local school children in

supplying the produce.

Co-managers Maria Lee and

Ursina Riederer want to purchase

supplies for the cafe from

local gardeners, and that includes

children from Diamond

Harbour School.

Ms Lee runs the Garden to

Table initiative at the school,

helping the pupils grow vegetables,

fruit and herbs, as well as

tending to a flock of chickens.

Once a week she also comes in

and cooks with the children using

the produce they’ve grown.

She’s hoping to bring them on

board to help supply the cafe,

along with local residents who

have a garden glut or excess

produce.

“We’ll be offering people

in the area market rates for

produce that’s either grown especially

for the cafe or resulting

from a glut of fruits or vegetables

in the garden.”

The most commonly used supplies

are lemons, apples, lettuces,

salad greens, tomatoes, spinach,

garlic, onions, plums, apricots,

peaches, pears, beetroot and

carrots.

FRESH: Ursina Riederer and Maria Lee are co-managers of a

new cafe opening at Orton Bradley Park. ​

It will be the second time

around for the park’s cafe after a

Victorian-themed establishment

closed in May after just one

season.

Park manager Ian Luxford

said the decision to close was

made because the cafe wasn’t

financially viable.

Ms Lee expects the new model

will be more sustainable.

“We’ll be using locally

sourced, seasonal produce,

which means our menu will

change throughout the season

to showcase the freshest ingredients.

We will employ locally

and utilise local talents, as well

as growing much of our own

produce and working hard to

minimise waste. Every weekend

the cafe will have a local guest

baker create a cake that has history

and meaning for them.”

The cafe will hold two taster

evenings in September before

opening for business in the

first weekend of October. It will

initially be open Wednesday to

Sunday.

Parking meters that give

back to the community

CHARITY PARK: A parking

meter to collect donations for

community groups could be

trialled in Sumner. ​

• By Sarla Donovan

A COMMUNITY parking

meter in Sumner could help raise

money for local projects.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton wants to install

a re-purposed parking meter in

the city council’s new Nayland

St car park behind the Matuku

Takotako: Sumner Centre.

She raised the idea at a recent

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board meeting after

seeing the re-purposed meters

online.

People who parked in the

metered space could voluntarily

donate money and get a parking

ticket showing the donation.

The money would then go to a

local community group to help

with projects.

United States cities like San

Diego, Pasadena and Pensacola

have been putting parking meters

to work for several years, collecting

donations for charity.

Specially painted meters were

installed in Pensacola, Florida, in

2015, as an alternative to giving

directly to homeless on the street.

Said Cr Templeton: “I can see

it working in all sorts of areas for

different groups and, hopefully,

Sumner will be the first of many.”

Sumner Residents’ Association

spokeswoman Kimberley

Mossman was positive about the

suggestion. “It sounds quite a

gorgeous, fun idea, and a great

way of engaging people with the

community.”

Joe’s Garage co-owner Callum

Brownlee said it was a “neat idea”

and something definitely worth

trialling.

Urban regeneration group Gap

Filler were working on a community

car parking project at the

moment, and Cr Templeton said

she was also hoping to do something

similar in suburban areas.

City council staff are looking

into the donation meter proposal

and will report back to the board.

Stock up on fresh cereal

• By Sarla Donovan

ROSE LINDLEY is an unlikely

entrepreneur.

At the age of 63, you might

expect she’d be easing her way

into retirement after a long nursing

career.

Instead, she’s been busy growing

her own breakfast cereal

company, called Mumma Bear,

after a nickname her children

gave her, all the while continuing

to nurse part-time.

Along with selling cereal

from stalls at the Lyttelton and

Christchurch farmers’ markets

over the past three years, Mrs

Lindley has just opened a full

commercial kitchen and shop

on Soleares Ave, along the road

from her and husband Tim’s

house. A trained food scientist,

Mr Lindley helps ensure Mumma

Bear’s recipes are nutritious

and healthy.

Mrs Lindley now cooks 12

batches of her granola, muesli

and porridge from there, instead

of loading up the car and making

a weekly trek out to a commercial

kitchen in Lincoln.

The self-confessed foodie says

the business developed naturally

after a life-time fascination with

food.

“It’s always been a thing in

our family; I used to do courses

teaching bread-making out

in Lincoln. Then, after the

earthquakes, the people I used

asked if I’d help out selling at

the Mt Pleasant Market. I was at

the very first market day and I

worked there as a volunteer for

the next two-and-a-half years.”

Eventually, juggling nursing

with volunteering at the market

meant making the hard decision

to give it up.

“I loved it. I think it’s in my

bones, there’s a wee bit of Italian

in my background and it comes

out now and then.”

After a while, missing the

market vibe, she looked around

for a product she could sell

and settled on breakfast cereal.

Our People

Ben Brown

From being bullied into reading books to

Lyttelton’s Ben Brown

has been a writer and

publisher since 1992.

In that time, he has

published 17 books for

children and in 2011

was awarded the Maori

Writers’ Residency

at the Michael King

Writers’ Centre. He

talks to Sarla Donovan

about life and writing

Were you always a writer or

did life make you into one?

It’s interesting. I grew up on

a farm in Motueka and didn’t

have much time for books as a

kid, but my dad was a voracious

reader. He’d bully me into

reading books, and when I

started, it was awesome. At the

same time, I developed a knack

for writing at school. That was

my favourite subject at school,

the bit where they’d let you go

and write stories. My dad used

to wander around the farm

muttering poetry to himself.

He was something special.

A tobacco farmer. He was a

labourer in his early 20s, then

got an offer for a block of land he

couldn’t refuse. He could turn

his hand to anything.

When your children were

young, did you tell them

stories?

We (former partner and illustrator

Helen Taylor) bounced

a lot of stories off them and read

a lot to both our children right

up until they were 12 or 13. We

got some good advice off the

two of them. My son is now into

computer software. He’s 20 and

finishes his degree this year. My

daughter is an extremely good

writer. When you look back

on it, they both have a creative

element and both kids value an

artistic approach to things. But

they’ve seen too much of the

struggle for artists. They want

salaries. My son told me a joke,

it’s the only poet joke I know.

‘What’s the difference between

a park bench and a poet? A park

bench can support a family. He

admires what we do, though.

What were your first jobs?

We did lots of things before

we had kids. I was a tobacco

worker straight out of school, a

forestry worker, and did labouring

over in Australia – a whole

bunch of different labouring and

hospitality jobs – and tutoring

in the 90s. And I wrote all the

way through it, but only really

started to knuckle down when

I was at Canterbury University

doing law. The first manuscript

I ever submitted I wrote in a law

lecture. I wasn’t disciplined when

it came to study. Couldn’t see the

point of being an average lawyer,

and looking down the barrel of a

four-year degree, I sort of knew I

wasn’t up to it. Then I met Helen.

That first book I wrote was The

Penguin Who Wanted to Fly.

You’ve now published 17

books for children – do you

have a favourite?

That first one is my favourite

in a lot ways because it’s what

got us started. We self-published

for the first eight years. Literally

sitting at the table cutting and

pasting, getting bromides made,

trundling off down to the printers.

Independent publishing it’s

called now. But that was the first

manuscript we started submitting

and it kind of kept us going

because we got really nice rejection

letters, which made us stick

at it. We published four titles

ourselves and sold about 16,000

copies. They helped us tick over

financially. We had our kids over

that time. We were always looking

at the struggle and wondering

if it was worth it.

So what got you picked up by

a publisher?

About the time we stopped

self-publishing, we were noticed

by Reed, which at the time was

New Zealand’s oldest publisher.

They picked up an ABC wall

chart that Helen did, then took

The Thief of Colours. After that,

we did about two books a year

with them, including A Booming

in the Night, (Best Picture Book,

New Zealand Post Children’s

Book Awards 2006.) That’s probably

been our best seller.

Has it ever been lucrative?

It’s a struggle to be honest,

unless you write a best-seller. I

tend to write what I want rather

than what I should. I’ve done

mostly poetry and short fiction

writing for adults in the last few

years and there’s absolutely no

market for that, unless you get

out and perform and do things

like that.

Looking back on your work,

are there any themes that keep

cropping up?

Definitely in my poetry. I deal

in reality, don’t really do pretty,

evocative language. I’m street

level – coming of age, dysfunction,

life struggles – I try to keep

it real. With kids books I try to

make it light and fun; mischief

and mayhem at a childhood

level. I don’t want to see blood on

the floor, not in a children’s book

anyway.

Helen illustrated many of

your children’s books – what’s

it like working with a family

member?

We’d have a lot of fun. I used

to giggle away to myself writing

some stories, thinking how is she

going to illustrate this. We had a

rule – I don’t interfere with your

work, and vice versa. That’s the

joy actually, is seeing how others

interpret your work. Helen’s an

easy person to work with. We

still sit down and come up with

ideas and I write introductions

to her books.

Sumner family’s historical

So do you work at home or

have an office somewhere?

A little while ago an office

came up at the Loons – it’s cool,

you have to get up and go out

to work! But for nearly 30 years,

I’ve worked at home. For me it’s

a job – I have to write a certain

amount each day and

generate material. I

work five to six days

a week. Also do a

bit of tutoring and

other side activities,

but they have to have

something to do with

writing. I like to have

at least two different

projects on the go.

Writing can be

pretty sedentary.

What gets you out and

about?

I walk – Lyttelton is a walking

town. I’m getting old and a bit

broken so walking’s about as far

as I’ll go with physical exercise.

But I like it a lot. I don’t do the

tracks, I just wander the hills

around home. I used to do the

tracks but some of them are a bit

rugged and a bit busted up.

Do you have any favourite

haunts in Lyttelton?

I usually kick off the day with

a coffee and cigarette at the

Lyttelton Coffee Company.

What projects do you have on

the go right now?

There’s a play I’m

working on and I’m

also trying to finish

a book that was

due last year, a mix

of poetry and nonfiction.

connection to Rangi Ruru

• By Julia Evans

EVIE LAIDLAW is 12 and she

doesn’t know a world without

mobile phones, Facebook and

the internet.

But Evie, who lives in Sumner,

is part of a legacy that dates back

to when her school, Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School, opened in 1890.

Through her father Robert

Laidlaw and grandfather

John Laidlaw, who also live

in Sumner, Evie is a direct

descendant of the Gibson family

who opened Rangi Ruru in 1890.

The school celebrated

Founder’s Day last week.

Three generations of the

Laidlaw family were at the

school to mark the occasion and

Evie was asked to light a candle

during the service.

“It was a really special service

for Evie,” said Robert Laidlaw.

Captain Frederick Gibson

built the school and his

daughters Helen, Mary, Beatrice,

Alice, Lucy, Ethel, Ruth and

Winifred ran the school for

nearly 60 years.

The Gibson sisters were Evie’s

grandfather’s great aunts.

But just about every woman

on both sides of Evie’s family

have worn the Rangi Ruru

uniform as students at the

school, including her mother

Lucy, both grandmothers and a

myriad of aunts.

Her grandfather married

his wife Judy in St Andrew’s

Church, which is now on the

school’s grounds, in 1965.

Robert Laidlaw said the family

connection comes out through

the family tree and is reflected in

their family values.

“The school really reflects our

family traditions and values, so

it’s really good to see Evie going

there,” he said.

At 12, this is Evie’s first year

at the school. Until now

she hasn’t understood the

importance of the family’s

historic connection.

“I think she’s just starting to

realise the importance of the

school to the family and she’s

making the most of it,” he said.

The family pulled out all the

stops to get her there.

“We were fortunate enough to

have the opportunity to send her

to the school and she knows it’s a

privilege,” he said.

The entire family is

very proud, especially her

grandfather who is thrilled his

granddaughter will be carrying

on the traditions of the past.

Pupils take to the hills to help

restore native vegetation

• By Sarla Donovan

LYTTELTON’S HILLS will soon

be alive with the sound of spadewielding

school children.

At a planting day planned

for August 18, pupils from

Heathcote and Lyttelton primary

schools will hike up to the Port

Saddle along with members of

the Banks Peninsula Conservation

Trust.

The 17ha Port Saddle lies

on Lyttelton’s eastern hill side

between the city council-owned

Urumau Reserve and DOC

reserve land at Buckleys Bay and

Tauhinu-Korokio.

Lyttelton Port Company owns

the land and is working with

the trust to restore the site by

controlling weeds and pests and

planting natives.

Trust volunteer co-ordinator

Sophie Hartnell said by bringing

local school children on board

early on in the project, they

would be more inclined to feel a

sense of ownership and want to

continue being involved into the

future.

“Both schools are very close

and, as this is intended to be a

recreational area for all, we want

to create a sense of belonging.

Hopefully, they will then be

more likely to use it and look

after it.”

As of last week, 40 pupils had

registered for the expedition.

Along with planting trees and

shrubs, DOC staff will speak to

them about pest management

and the predator-free Banks

Peninsula initiative.

On August 19, trust volunteers

and locals will head up the hill

for another burst of planting.

Mrs Hartnell has emailed the

trust’s database of about 100

volunteers asking for helpers.

She will also drop fliers around

Lyttelton letting residents know

about the planting day.

Ngaio, akeake, kanuka,

matagouri and broadleaf grew

on the saddle originally. Now,

only exotic grasses and woody

weeds, pines and eucalypts

remain.

LPC and the trust hope

that enhancing the land

through planting, walkways

and cycle tracks will help

provide accessible recreational

opportunities close to Lyttelton.

The plants are being funded

by LPC.

The role of pine in

preventing rockfall

Dorothea

Herron’s

involvement in

native planting

restoration

at Urumau

Reserve goes back 20

years. She writes about the

vital role historic pine trees

are still playing on the

steep-sided terrain

Those pine trees on the hillside

up behind Foster and Gilmour

Tces are just low-value pests,

right?

Wrong. The trees, known

as The Plantation, were

planted back in the 1880s, when

residents recognised the rockfall

hazard that the bare hill presented

to Lyttelton’s inhabitants.

Since then, the pine trees have

helped to keep the rocks at bay

and now they are providing shelter

to regenerating native plants.

Under the protection of the

plantation pines, native plants

are quietly regenerating.

They’re not show-offs like the

in your face pine trees, but they

are coming along nicely. You

need to look to see them, but

they’re there doing their thing.

These natives are special

because they are self-introduced

from the immediate ecological

area and, one day, these upstarts

will take over the job of

protecting the town from those

unstable rocks. And they’ll do

something that the pine trees

can’t – provide food and habitat

for other natives.

So the next time you’re walking

or scrambling around in The

Plantation, take some time to see

what’s really growing on.

A blockbuster thriller from No.1 Sunday Times

Retired fire officer

saves house from blaze

• By Sarla Donovan

DIAMOND HARBOUR’S chief

fire officer Bob Palmer says the

quick actions of a knowledgeable

neighbour helped save a Port

Levy home.

Mr Palmer said the brigade

received a call from Lyttelton’s

retired chief fire officer Alan

“Goodie” Goodmanson just

after 11pm on July 30.

His wife, upon hearing some

“unusual sounds” had opened to

curtains to see red flames shooting

up the back of the house

opposite.

Mr Goodmanson immediately

called the Fire Service before

zooming across the road in his

night attire.

Luckily the owner, who lives

in Christchurch, had left on the

power which controls the water

pump, so Mr Goodmanson

was able to use a garden hose to

douse the back of the house.

By then, another neighbour

had come out.

“Between them, they smashed

a window and sprayed water

into the house which was well

involved, with fire going up the

inside wooden walls and into a

bathroom,” Mr Palmer said.

“It was Goodie’s efforts that

saved the house, no doubt about

it. I wouldn’t expect to arrive

and find a minor fire . . . we are

about 30 minutes away. It was

the fantastic work of old Goodie

that saved the day.”

The fire was caused by hot

ashes close to the house, Mr

Palmer said.

Another award for Roots

LYTTELTON restaurant Roots

has won another top award in

this year’s Cuisine Good Food

Awards announced in Auckland

on Monday night.

Roots, which was started by

owner and chef Giulio Sturla,

was the only restaurant outside

of Auckland to secure the

maximum three “hats” in the

awards ratings.

Just eight three-hat restaurants

qualified nationally.

Other Christchurch/Canterbury

establishments recognised

in the awards include Saggio di

Vino, Pegasus Bay and Chillingworth

The Good Daughter

by Karin Slaughter

’Karin Slaughter’s most ambitious, most emotional, and best novel. So far,

anyway.’ James Patterson

The stunning new standalone, with a chilling edge of psychological

suspense, from the bestselling author of Pretty Girls.

Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One

is left behind ...

Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn’s happy smalltown

family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left

their mother dead. It left their father - Pikeville’s notorious defence attorney

- devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by

secrets from that terrible night.

Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father’s footsteps

to become a lawyer herself - the archetypal good daughter. But when

violence comes to Pikeville again - and a shocking tragedy leaves the

whole town traumatised - Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only

is she the first witness on the scene, but it’s a case which can’t help

triggering the terrible memories she’s spent so long trying to suppress.

Because the shocking truth about the crime which destroyed her family

nearly thirty years ago won’t stay buried for ever ...

International funding by Rotary

Barbara

Crooks writes

about the

important role

played by the

international

branch of

the Rotarian

movement in supporting

communities and initiatives

around the world

Ferrymead Rotary raises

money in the local community

to spend in the local community.

But these funds don’t go far

enough to do all we’d like to in

helping young people and community

activities.

So, we look to the Rotary

Foundation, an international

charity funded by donations

from Rotarians, Rotary clubs

and individuals. Each year, the

foundation returns half of Rotary

contributions for use at the local

level.

This year Ferrymead Rotary

was granted foundation money

to send Israel Lochhead to a

week-long, live-in youth leadership

course held at College

House, University of Canterbury.

The course, run by Rotary for 18

to 25-year-olds, provided a mix

of expert speakers, outdoor rope

exercises, group-project work,

and plenty of opportunity to get

to know one another.

Last year Ferrymead used a

grant to help provide a Healthy

Heroes programme in a local

school. This is designed to help

primary school pupils develop

a balanced lifestyle – eat well,

sleep well, exercise regularly, read

or learn something new, and do

something to help someone else.

The Rotary Foundation is an

endowment fund established in

1917. It received its first donation

in 1926 – US$26.

Right now, the foundation has

captured international attention

through its 35-year campaign

to rid the world of polio. The

United Nations, governments,

major international donors, and

health professionals have joined

rotary’s drive to eradicate polio.

Just a few cases in a few countries

remain.

Last year the foundation gave

more than US$100 million

in grants towards promoting

world understanding and peace

through humanitarian and educational

programmes.

Projects include saving mothers

and babies, providing clean

drinking water, supporting

education, helping develop local

economies, and fighting disease.

It is supported by donations from

Rotarians and friends around the

world.

National

List MP for

Port Hills

Nuk Korako

reflects on the

response from

civil defence

emergency management

during the recent flooding

event in the city

July was a month of extreme

weather in the Port Hills, with

high rainfall causing flooding in

many parts of our district.

My thoughts are with those

who had to be evacuated and I

hope that any damage to your

properties has been minimal. It

was a challenging few days for

many people, and I want to recognise

the tireless efforts of all

those who contributed to local

and regional responses.

When the state of emergency

was declared in Christchurch, I

visited the Civil Defence centre

at Linwood College.

It was great to see how proactively

and decisively Civil Defence

emergency management

groups acted to keep people and

property out of harm’s way and

it was a pleasure to lend them

a hand at the Linwood centre,

which had been set up for flood

evacuees and any residents feeling

unsafe due to the flooding.

It’s always hard to see the

damage that flooding can do to

people’s homes and livelihoods,

but it is communities like ours

in the Port Hills which embrace

a firm can-do attitude, are

staunch, resilient, and humble.

On July 24, Youth Minister

Nikki Kaye announced the

opening of applications for the

$100,000 Youth in Emergency

Preparedness Fund, which supports

national programmes run

collaboratively with the Ministry

of Youth Development and

the Ministry of Civil Defence

and Emergency Management.

I’d encourage any relevant

local groups to apply – it’s a

fantastic opportunity for our

young people to get involved in

Civil Defence and emergency

services, develop new skills,

potentially find a new career

path and, of course, contribute

to their communities in a positive

way.

I’ve had a busy few weeks at

Parliament and in the Port Hills.

A real highlight was being a

guest speaker at the Cholmondeley

Children’s Foundation

event on July 27. Cholmondeley

Children’s Centre offers original

and specialised services for children

affected by family crisis,

and gives them the chance to see

the light, feel the warmth and

reach their potential.

Looking towards the

future of Whakaraupō/

Lyttelton Harbour

PHOTO: KELVIN MCMILLAN

Improving the health of the harbour is a goal

we can all strive for and contribute towards.

Yvette Couch-Lewis

August marks the one

year anniversary since

Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke,

Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu,

Environment Canterbury,

Christchurch City Council,

and the Lyttelton Port

Company signed a

Memorandum of Understanding committing

to work together to create an action plan

for restoring the cultural and ecological

health of Whakaraupō.

The need for these organisations to work

together on creating a Whakaraupō/Lyttelton

Harbour Catchment Plan was identified

during the Lyttelton Port Recovery Plan

hearings in 2015 when many members

of the community and Ngāti Wheke

asked for a long-term and coordinated

commitment to improving the health of

the harbour by looking at all activities

happening in the catchment.

And so for the past 12 months, we’ve had

numerous people from each of these five

organisations working hard to develop a plan

which we hope will resonate with you and

one that future generations will be excited

to see come to fruition.

We’ve sought advice from many different

sources, including scientists who provided

advice on the gaps in understanding and

monitoring of Whakaraupō; Ngāti Wheke

along with the other partners have provided

us with ideas on potential projects we could

include in the plan; and the community

who have told us what matters most to

them in the area.

Thank you to everyone who has assisted

us during this time. We’re now at a point of

drafting a long-term catchment management

plan which will look toward 2040.

Looking that far ahead is no easy task and

the governance group is keen to see a

mixture of long-term projects and practical

actions that everyone can contribute to now.

Suggestions we’ve received range from

the installation of educational interpretation

panels to large-scale, long-term projects such

as restoration of the head of the harbour.

The final plan will include immediate

restoration actions, ongoing monitoring

and reporting, co-ordinated science to

improve understanding, and looking at how

we as partners coordinate and align our work

programmes for the benefit of harbour health.

We will also consider the existing regulatory

framework and if it supports our goals or if

changes are needed.

Improving the health of the harbour is a goal

we can all strive for and contribute towards.

Through this plan, we want to ensure that

you as residents and businesses feel a

connection and know how you too can help

improve the harbour for future generations.

We hope that as a result of this work, we

will once again be able to hear the morning

chorus, to catch a fish or collect shellfish with

our children to provide a meal for the family.

On raining days when the streams are rushing

out into the harbour, we hope to look out and

not see the sediment plume and ultimately

we hope to see the native species of the

catchment increase and return.

We will be engaging with communities

and stakeholder groups on the draft

plan in October. Keep an eye out on

healthyharbour.org.nz for more information.

Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour Catchment

Plenty of space for all to enjoy

Regional Harbourmaster

Jim Dilley writes about

trot moorings, safety

patrols and how lifejackets

can make the difference

between life and death on

the water

Gary Manch is off swanning

around in the sun and it’s very

quiet in the office without him.

He’s left me a long list of stuff

to cover in these write-ups but

I’ll just ignore those and claim

ignorance when he returns.

There are a few things

happening around the Peninsula

at present. In Akaroa, we will

be installing a series of trot

moorings – basically a long

chain between two large blocks

on the seabed. This has short

ropes/chains coming up from it

and a buoy to mark them.

It is hoped these will provide a

method of mooring small boats

over the summer period without

taking up lots of space.

Once they are in position, we

will let you know where they are

located and how people can use

them.

Gary has been setting his

schedule for boating safety

education and patrols over the

coming summer period (yes, I’m

sure the warmer weather will

come eventually). We will have

Cabin Boy’s Corner

staff on the water on our patrol

personal watercraft and on the

boat ramps in various locations

and times.

We are focused on education

instead of fines; it’s about letting

people know there may be a

better place to do something, or

that water-skiing in a swimming

area is not a good idea.

There is plenty of space for

everyone to enjoy, as long as

we each think about what is

going on around us and act

reasonably.

If you do have concerns while

out on the water, we have a duty

officer who can help you resolve

possible issues. Just phone 0800

EC INFO (0800 324 636) and

follow the voice prompts for the

harbourmaster’s office and duty

officer.

A recent court case found a

boatie guilty of manslaughter

after his boat capsized and his

passenger drowned. The owner

and skipper of the boat went to

sea in rough conditions with

neither himself or his crew

wearing a lifejacket. Even worse

there were no lifejackets on

board the vessel.

Unfortunately, the vessel

capsized and the passenger died.

“If you are the skipper you are

legally responsible for the safety

of the boat and all on board.

You can be prosecuted for

breaching safety rules” said

Maritime New Zealand director

Keith Manch.

We all know lifejackets save

lives. I can only imagine the

distress this has caused to all

those involved. Please save

your loved ones from having to

deal with the loss of you at sea.

Wear a correctly fitting lifejacket

and come home safe from

boating.

I often get things wrong (as my

good lady reminds me on many

occasions). I just hope I have

the sense to listen to others and

realise my mistakes before I do

something wrong that endangers

myself or others on the water.

If I do get it wrong with a

lifejacket on I won’t drown,

and with two types of

communication I can tell

someone where I am so I can be

rescued.

Questions need answering

Port Hills MP

Ruth Dyson

questions

whether

measures to

mitigate flood

risk on the lower Heathcote

River will be sufficient

The recent flooding – just three

years after the last substantial

floods – has caused damage and

distress to local residents and

their homes, many of which

have already been through so

much – quakes, floods, fires

and now more floods. And the

overwhelming reaction from

these people was to look out for

other people and offer help. It really

makes me proud to be a New

Zealander.

But there are questions that

need answering and I really want

the city council to meet with all

the affected residents, hear their

views and answer their questions.

I know that there is lots of

valuable local knowledge held

by people who live alongside the

river. Many live there because

of the river and know it and its

patterns well.

We all know that there is a lot

of work under way to mitigate

the flood risk on the lower

Heathcote. There are four flood

basins in the Upper Heathcote

planned. Only one is operating

so far, one is under construction

and two will have construction

starting over summer. They

will hold 800,000 cu m of water.

The new pumping station on

Richardson Tce is well under way

and two large flood basins are

planned to take water in the Bells

Creek catchment in Woolston.

Is this enough? And what

about the significant new subdivisions

planned for Cashmere

and above Hoon Hay Valley Rd?

What impact will their run-off

have on the river? And what can

be done to stop the silt run-off

from the fire-damaged areas

which further clogs up the river?

Should the river be dredged?

And how can the city council

support local residents to better

protect their own homes?

We can always learn from each

other and I look forward to this

exchange of information so that

we can really reduce the risk of

flooding in the future.

Finally, thanks to the many

volunteers who opened the

evacuation centre at Linwood

College, who took the rescue

boats out to stranded locals, who

knocked on doors providing

such reassurance and who helped

with the big cleanup. You did it

not for praise, but for the good of

others, but you deserve heaps of

praise as well – thank you.
