House guest gets seal of approval

Luseal spends

night in family’s

bathroom

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

EXCITED: Larrissa McEwin with her children Harvey, 2, and Lyiah, 5,

near where the seal pup was found at the top of Gebbies Pass. Named

Luseal, by the family, it spent a night in the family’s bathroom before

being released back to the wild the following day.

• By Sarla Donovan

WHEN LARRISSA McEwin’s

husband, Finn, found a seal pup at

the top of Gebbies Pass, she wasn’t

expecting it to spend the night in

her bathroom.

But that’s exactly what happened.

The couple’s house is halfway

between Teddington and

Motukarara, several minutes drive

along narrow, winding roads, so

how the seal pup got there is a

mystery.

“It was there in the car park near

the walking track, right near where

we live. My husband called me up

and said: ‘What do I do?’ It was a

Friday evening, there was a storm

arriving and there’s boy racers

everywhere up there on a Friday.”

She called the Department of

Conservation, who asked if she was

okay to have it for the night and

return it to the beach the following

day.

“I was a bit surprised. I said sure

– but how do you look after a seal?

I didn’t have any fresh fish in the

house. We opened a tin of tuna for

it which it didn’t eat of course. It

slept on the floor in the bathroom.

It was a very good house guest,

didn’t make much noise at all. We

poked our heads in every now and

then to check on it, and there were

its wee eyes looking up at us – it was

gorgeous! I’d love to have kept it.’’

FROM

EDITOR’S

DESK News................................3-7, 17

NOW THAT’S a nice story on

the front page today about the

seal pup the McEwin family

rescued.

Finn McEwin found it at the

top of Gebbies Pass, took it home

and his wife and family looked

after it like one of their own.

Great photos of it having a

sleep and looking very much at

home.

How the pup got to the top

of Gebbies Pass is a mystery –

possibly someone dropped it off

there or it could have simply lost

its bearings.

The seal stayed the night and

was named Luseal – very catchy,

before the pup was taken to

Purau Beach and released.

The McEwins last saw Luseal

heading into deeper water. No

doubt they’ll ponder for a long

time what adventures Luseal will

get up to.

DIAMOND Harbour Ferry

users won’t be able to be

picked up or dropped off at the

terminal once Lyttelton Port

Company’s new staff car park is

finished.

Previously, ferry patrons used

an informal area within the car

park. However, this would not

be possible once the new car

park was finished due to space

restraints.

Diamond Harbour

Community Association

chairman Richard Suggate

said he had written to LPC

expressing concern at the

change.

In response, LPC project

director for the new car park

Mike Simmers told Mr Suggate

pick-ups and drop-offs were

not currently allowed “and will

certainly not be allowed going

forward.”

“We have installed a sign on

the bridge to remind people

that the bridge is for port traffic

and buses only. We have not

overly enforced this to date –

but will in the future,” he said.

While direct stair access to

Oxford St will be introduced as

part of the changes, Mr Suggate

said he was concerned at the

lack of a designated parking

zone.

Preventing car access to the

wharf would mean a longer

walk for physically impaired

people, Mr Suggate said.

“Those with goods to drop off

will either have to seek wharf

access permission, or carry the

goods from Norwich Quay.”

Mr Suggate has written to the

city council and Environment

Canterbury asking for support

to ensure “accessible public

access” to the ferry is preserved.

Passengers face walk to board ferry

ACCESS: Ferry passengers won’t be able to be picked up or

dropped off at an informal area within the car park once the

Lyttelton Port Company upgrades the area.

The new car park will also

reduce bus parking spaces from

two to one.

City council transport

operations manager Aaron

Haymes said, while the city

council “aspired” to have a

bus stop close to the ferry, it

understood the development

needs of LPC.

“(This) might mean bus

services are best operated from

the closest bus stop on Norwich

Quay.”

Mr Simmers said providing

an extra bus parking space

“wasn’t a good utilisation of the

land area.”

Ferry-users spoken to on

Monday had mixed views on

the changes.

One thought it would

make using the ferry more

difficult, while another wasn’t

concerned, saying they

understood the needs of the

port.

Eighteen-year-old Freya Gale,

of Diamond Harbour, said the

current service “worked well.”

Bus connections matched up

and, on the occasions when she

needed to be dropped off, she

had “never had any trouble.”

The Diamond Harbour Ferry

terminal will eventually be relocated

from its current location

to the eastern end of the new Te

Ana Marina.

Bay Harbour News understands

that shift will be eight to

10 years away. An LPC spokeswoman

said the car park would

be finished by Christmas.

CRASH VICTIM NAMED

The 55-year-old who died after his

work truck crashed into two parked

cars on College Pl, Lyttelton, has been

named as Phillip David Collier. The

Christchurch man suffered a medical

event at about 10.30am on September

was injured. Lyttelton Fire Brigade

chief fire officer Mark Buckley

said Mr Collier had just pulled out

of a driveway when the incident

occurred.

Community Board is looking at

whether signs can be installed

informing travellers that freedom

camping isn’t allowed at the spot.

FARMERS MAY GO HIGH-VIS

Farmers shifting stock on public

roads in the bay area will need highvisibility

vests under proposed stock

control changes. Under the proposed

changes, warning signs would need

to be placed at either end of a stock

group being shifted and, in some

NOMINEE: After winning the Canterbury lifeguard of the year award in May, Tom Denman is now

up for the national award later this month.

Sumner lifesavers finalists in

national excellence awards

FOUR SUMNER surf lifesavers

have been named as finalists at

the national awards of excellence

in Auckland.

Tom Denman (lifeguard of the

year), Kate Suter (volunteer of

the year), Jonelle Quane (coach

of the year) and Derek Shanks

(official of the year) have all been

nominated for awards ahead of

the ceremony on September 23.

All four won the same

respective awards at the

Canterbury awards of excellence

in May.

Denman, who is a police officer,

was part of a surf lifesaving

crew which helped to recover

the body of Maureen Imrie, 73,

who was killed when the vehicle

her husband Bruce was driving

crashed into the sea off Main Rd.

Until joining the police last

year, he had worked as a full-time

lifeguard on opposite sides of the

globe, spending four summers

working in Poole, England.

Man charged with

multiple thefts

• By Sarla Donovan

A 48-YEAR-OLD man will

appear for sentencing after a

spate of thefts in Akaroa on

August 27 and 28.

The man was arrested last

week and charged with multiple

thefts, including a ute, two bicycles,

a back-pack style vacuum

cleaner, two VHF radios, about

six wetsuits and seven life jackets

from the Akaroa Boat Club, and

various other items.

He was driving the stolen ute

in Linwood Ave last Monday

when he was stopped by police

and arrested.

He is scheduled to appear at

the Christchurch District Court

on October 10.

Akaroa Police Senior Constable

Tim Johnson said most of

the stolen goods had since been

recovered and returned to their

owners.

He said it was a timely reminder

for people to make sure

they kept their homes and cars

locked.

“In a place like this, crime

is not high; people can get

relaxed and it takes something

like this to get them to do those

things.”

Shifting of boat shed to start soon

• By Sarla Donovan

A PROJECT which has been

years in the making has got the

green light.

Christchurch Yacht Club has

secured city council funding of

$240,000 towards a new boat

shed, meaning the $1.17 million

building can finally get underway.

Construction is expected to

start almost

straight away.

The new shed

will be 5.5m

further seaward,

enlarging the

space for a public

Richard

Ineson

walking and cycle

route between

it and the road

from 1m to 4m.

The city council grant was

made possible through a legal

agreement requiring the club to

make adjoining decks and ramps

accessible to the public.

Located in Moncks Bay, the

boat shed was damaged in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Its rebuild has been complicated

by several factors, including

the coastal pathway which will

eventually run behind the shed

along the roadside edge.

Originally built against the

road, the pathway meant the

shed had to be shifted further

seaward, incurring extra costs.

The city council funding would

go towards the replacement base

of the new shed.

Club commodore Richard

Ineson said the project had been

“complex” but was pleased they

had persevered.

Building would begin as soon

as the contractor was ready, as

resource consents and building

permits have already been

obtained.

“We’ve had the contracts in

place for two years,” Mr Ineson

said.

He estimated the work would

take about three months to

complete.

The club has already been

allocated $327,595 from the

Coastal Pathway project, money

which will contribute towards

the extra costs associated

with providing for the coastal

pathway.

20% off all

*

SHIFTING: Because the old pathway was too narrow to allow

for the Coastal Pathway walking and cycle route, the rebuilt

Christchurch Yacht Club shed will be pushed 4m further

seaward. Inset – The old shed being demolished in June 2011.

FIRE RESTORATION

Two projects helping to restore

vegetation after the Port Hills

fire have been given $15,000

by the Selwyn Waihora Zone

Committee. The Lansdowne

Covenant Project will use a

$5000 grant to re-establish and

repair fences and native habitat

on farmland. The Early Valley

Fire Restoration Project received

$10,000 to restore a native hillside

gully and reduce sediment runoff

into the Huritini/Halswell

River.

SKATE RAMP NOISE TEST

A relocated temporary skate

ramp in Sumner is a step closer

after noise level tests required

under the city council’s District

Plan came back as acceptable.

The Sumner Green and Skate

Group is now preparing the

the site on the corner of Nayland

The godwits have come early this

their red feathering and tattered

Mrs McEwin christened

the pup Luseal.

“My five-year-old daughter

thought it was amazing.

We made a collage of photos

and she took it to school

for show and tell.”

DOC senior ranger Anita

Spencer said they had had

several calls on the after

hours hotline about a seal

pup on the road near Gebbies

Pass on September 1.

“It’s very unusual to find

a seal pup so far from the

sea or a stream and it’s not

known how it got there,”

she told the Bay Harbour

News.

“I phoned the caller back

and spoke to Mrs McEwin

who, by that stage, had put

the seal pup in a box and

taken it home. Because it

was late and a southerly

front had just arrived, she

was advised to keep the

seal safe overnight and

to release it in Lyttelton

Harbour the next morning.

The seal pup was in good

condition, which indicated

it had been weaned and

was doing well.”

On Sunday morning,

Mrs McEwin took Luseal

down to Purau Beach.

“Finn carried the box;

we walked around the

rocks and it hopped out

and sat there, looking at us

and looking at the water.

Then it toddled off into the

water and swam off. It was

doing big twirls and lifting

its flipper; it went right

out into the harbour then

swam back and looked at

us, as if to say ‘thanks for

having me.’ ”

•DOC’s advice to

people if they see

seals on or near

the coast is to avoid

approaching them. If

you come across a

seal that has been

injured, or one that

is in danger of being

harmed or causing

harm, phone DOC on

A GROUP of young women from

Kimihia Parents’ College helped

It’s their way of giving back

to the community after Sumner

families last month donated

baby and pre-schooler gear to

the students, many of whom are

Kimihia Parents’ College is

Linwood College. It was set up to

Sumner woman Becky Ward

The students came bearing

them to see, “they were over

teacher Diane Atkins.

“They had a ball. We loaded

they couldn’t wait to get home

GENERAL ELECTION 2017 – MEET THE CANDIDATES

Port Hills electorate

Selwyn electorate

Denis O’Rourke, New

Zealand First

National’s legacy is

economic stagnation,

poverty and a housing

crisis.

NZ First will increase the

minimum wage over three

years to at least $20/hour

and provide compensation

for businesses through the

taxation system.

We will raise benefits to

a living income level and

build thousands of modest

homes on smaller sections,

for first home buyers to

purchase over 25 years

without needing a deposit.

Housing NZ will be fully

funded. We will fully fund

health services, improve

mental health provision,

and revise ACC.

Tertiary education will

be free (with conditions,)

and we will set up workforce

planning to match

skills with demand, have

career support services for

both student and adults to

find jobs.

We will invest in

economic development

in the regions – beyond

just road improvements

– rebuild our neglected

railways, and genuinely

tackle climate change

through innovation and

large scale reafforestation.

And we will clean up our

lakes and rivers without

water taxes.

Amy Adams – National

As the local MP for

Selwyn since 2008 I

consider it an enormous

privilege to represent

the community that my

family and I live in, in

Parliament.

Working together we

have achieved so many

milestones for Selwyn including

new businesses and

schools, a new police station

with increased staffing,

road safety improvements

and improved broadband

services.

I work hard to be an

effective representative for

the people of Selwyn both

on local issues and on the

national stage, tackling

some of the big issues

that affect people across

the whole country such

as implementing a better

framework to manage

our water, tackling family

violence and cyberbullying,

dealing with housing

challenges, and improving

our telecommunications

infrastructure.

I would very much like to

continue to be your strong

voice in Wellington.

It’s my hope that the

voters of Selwyn will

choose to give me the

opportunity to continue

to be your Member of

Parliament for the next

three years.

Gary Gribben –

Democrats for Social

Credit

The housing in our

country is in a horrible state

largely because the National

government have been

asleep at the wheel.

A DSC Government

would use Reserve Bank

credit, low interest and

suspensory loans for people

starting out.

We are very concerned

at the way the present

Government has

abandoned our families.

DSC would stamp

out poverty to give our

children a future with real

tax reforms, including

replacing GST with a

tiny financial transaction

tax.

We will also bring in a

universal basic income

which will take a lot of

pressure off us all, helping

put food on the table and a

roof over our heads,

and create better

opportunities.

Health funding including

mental health together

with education (no student

loans) should be needs

based.

Local authorities, rail and

shipping, environmental

matters (climate change,

cleaning up rivers, vermin

eradication) will be funded

by our own bank.

Tony Condon – Labour

The Labour Party is a

very wide church, full of

people from all walks of

life, but one where we all

share the same values and

principles.

And that fundamental

value is, everyone matters.

As a province we have

and continue to experience

extremely challenging

times.

From the devastation

created from the

earthquakes through to

the ongoing rebuild and

regeneration of our region,

it has been a life-defining

experience.

It has provided perspective

and helps you to

answer the question of what

really matters. And for

many of us it is the people.

People really matter.

I am standing as the Labour

candidate for Selwyn

because I strongly believe

that this current government

has lost touch with

the people.

We expect care,

we expect dignity, we

expect courage, we

expect leadership and we

expect vision from our

government.

It’s time for a change.

Let’s do this.

GENERAL ELECTION 2017 – MEET THE CANDIDATES

Selwyn electorate

Brian Davidson – ACT

I’m a 69 year old semi-retired

insurance consultant

living in the Akaroa area.

I believe that individuals

should enjoy more personal

responsibility and less

restriction.

I believe that our taxes

should be lowered, with a

corresponding reduction in

Government spending.

I believe that NZ is best

governed by a National-led

government, but National

will not receive sufficient

votes alone and needs a

strong, principled partner

to form a government.

The ACT party could be

that partner.

Although we have been

limited by our size, we

have been part of the

Government for the last

nine years and we have

ensured that successful

legislation has been passed,

with the three strikes

policy and partnership

schools being two of our

successes.

David Seymour will win

the Epsom electorate vote,

so all party votes for ACT

will count.

If you want a strong

responsible government,

please consider giving your

party vote to ACT.

Nicky Snoyink – The

Opportunities Party

Disillusioned by the

lack of meaningful action

by establishment parties

to provide adequate

solutions to New Zealand’s

most pressing issues has

prompted Nicky Snoyink to

stand as The Opportunities

Party (TOP) Selwyn

candidate in the 2017

election.

TOP presents best practice,

evidenced informed

policies which tackle the

root causes of the hard

issues.

When implemented,

TOP’s policies will create

a New Zealand better

equipped to thrive in the

21st-century and prevent

the next generation from

receiving a massive hospital

pass.

Neither left nor right,

TOPs innovative, fit for

purpose policies will

require the polluter to pay,

honour the Treaty of Waitangi

and deal to housing

unaffordability while putting

more money into ordinary

Kiwi’s hands through

tax and welfare reform.

Please take the time to

read about TOP’s policies

and care, think, vote for a

fairer and more prosperous

New Zealand, where all

boats have the opportunity

to rise.

Chrys Horn –

Green Party

With strong interests in

community, environment

and economy, social

scientist, Chrys Horn has

worked in a wide range of

settings from agriculture

and tourism to resource

management and social

research.

She works tirelessly to

build community in her

local area, is an active

transport advocate and

works in the Addington

Timebank as a way to

learn more about the

practicalities of living

economies and to these

things she brings her

background in action

research, a form of adaptive

management.

She is standing for the

Green Party because of

the way the party’s

central values are written

down and held front and

centre.

These include a focus

on recognising the Treaty

of Waitangi, social equity,

ecological wisdom,

decision-making devolved

to the level at which people

will be affected, and the

principle of nonviolence

and the use of consensus

decision-making.

Lindy Michelle Palmer

– New Zealand First

With Labour and National

neck and neck in the polls,

it’s time to vote tactically.

Their policies are bad for

New Zealand.

I ask the people of

Selwyn the following:

If you are don’t like

capital gains tax, or high

immigration putting a

strain on our overstretched

services, both in health

and housing, or a water

tax that will definitely hurt

our farmers in Selwyn

District, make sure to

give NZ First the party

vote, so that we can stop

this madness.

NZ first will continue to

look after our seniors, and

make sure that our young

kids continue to have

free health. We will slash

immigration, and get our

housing down to affordable

levels for all.

Party vote for common

sense policies.

Tactically, a more powerful

NZ First in government

will keep both parties in

check.

Party vote New Zealand

First.

Rock classics sure to be on Barnes’ set list

BIG NAME: Rock and roll legend Jimmy Barnes says he’s

looking forward to headlining the next Selwyn Sounds. ​

• By Bridget Rutherford

JIMMY BARNES hasn’t decided

what songs he will play at March’s

Selwyn Sounds.

He will choose on the day when

he sees the crowd.

“I get to a set and I have a look

at the audience – what are they

doing, are they having a good

time? And I’ll pick the set accordingly,”

he said.

One thing’s for sure – he plans

to “rock out” and give the crowd a

good show.

The legendary Aussie rocker

will headline the day-long music

festival at Lincoln Domain on

March 3 alongside The Feelers,

Mental as Anything, The Mockers,

Stellar, The Narcs, The Ladykillers

and The Warratahs.

It follows this year’s inaugural

event, which saw Jordan Luck

Band, Mi-Sex, Dragon and other

Kiwi heavyweights play in front of

about 10,000 people.

Barnes, who now lives in the

Southern Highlands, New South

Wales, said he couldn’t be sure if

he had visited Lincoln before.

But he enjoyed playing in small

towns. It took him back to where

he started as lead singer in Cold

Chisel, he said.

“I’m looking forward to it, it’s a

beautiful part of the country,” he

said.

“I like to support the area, especially

after the earthquakes.”

Barnes said he enjoyed visiting

New Zealand and the “nob******t”

people.

“If I get the chance, I’ll buy a

place.”

When his music career began

in the 1970s, he never imagined

some of the songs would still be

crowd favourites today, he said.

Khe Sanh, which was recorded

in 1976, was an example, he said.

“When you get up and play

it, you can see young and old

and they’re all there singing it.

The song is as relevant now as it

was then. How it connects with

people, it makes it all worth it.”

And in spite of being one of

the best selling Australian music

rockers of all time, Barnes said he

enjoyed a variety of genres.

He was a big fan of Ray Charles,

Stevie Wonder, Paul Rodgers, Stevie

Marriott, Bruce Springsteen,

Neil Finn and even Sia.

“I had to sing Chandelier and I

realised how well written the song

is. I’m a big fan of hers.”

Barnes, who changed his last

name from Swan after his stepfather

Reg Barnes, was born in

Glasgow and emigrated to Adelaide

as a five-year-old.

Last year, he released his autobiography

Working Class Boy,

which told the tale of his childhood,

growing up with violence

and abuse, up until joining Cold

Chisel.

The next instalment, Working

Class Man, will be released next

month.

Although he hasn’t decided

exactly what songs he would play

in Lincoln, he reckons classics

such as Working Class Man, Khe

Sanh and Flame Trees will be in

the mix.

“I know I want to play rock ’n’

roll, so probably a cross section of

myself and Cold Chisel.”

And it will be a real family affair.

His kids, Jackie, Elly-May and

EJ, and wife Jane will perform

alongside him at Selwyn Sounds,

with son-in-law Ben Rodgers,

Danny Spencer, Lachlan Doley

and Michael Hegarty.

Barnes said he wasn’t sure

whether he would be staying in

Lincoln or for how long, but if so,

he would likely be out and about

looking for a nice place to eat.

So would he make an impromptu

performance?

“You never know.”

•Selwyn Sounds will be

held on March 3 at Lincoln

Domain, with music from

11am-8.30pm. Tickets are

available at www.ticketek.

Fundraising is vital

in today’s schools

MP for

Port Hills

Ruth Dyson

reflects on

the time

and energy

being put

into school

fundraisers

I joined the sellout crowd at a

fantastic fundraiser at Our Lady

Star of the Sea School in Sumner

recently.

It was a brilliant evening and

everyone had a thoroughly good

night. The week before I went to

the Somerfield School Craft fair

which again provided a really

good evening (and I won the

raffle). And there was the recent

barn dance for Redcliffs School

– and Lyttelton Primary School’s

Fashion show.

Most of us just buy tickets and

go along and have a great time

at these fundraisers. But I did

reflect on just how much work

goes into organising them.

Principals, teachers, support

staff and parents do so much

to raise the money to keep our

schools working so well. Even

with this massive fundraising,

school donations are common.

Across the country, they range

from $40 to $800 a year and then

when you add in the cost of uniforms,

field trips, social events,

sporting equipment and stationery

that can be up to $1000 per

year as well.

So a massive thank you to this

small group of passionate people

in each school who do so much

to give our children the best

possible education and the best

experiences.

They deserve a lot of thanks

but they deserve better support

as well. The relationship between

central government and schools

in funding needs to be restored.

In last year’s Budget, the operational

funding for schools was

frozen for four years by the Government.

That’s just ridiculous.

It certainly hasn’t been matched

by a freezing of all the costs that

schools face.

The importance of high

quality education increases as

the years go by and our world

changes.

We are so fortunate to have

such an amazing group of people

in front of our students every

day. And so are our students.

Thank you.

Spring brings out boaties

Lyttelton-based

navigational safety officer

Gary Manch is back from

holiday and looking

forward to getting back

on the water with warmer

spring weather on the

horizon

I am just back from a threeweek

holiday in Thailand,

complete with 35 deg C weather

and lovely sunny days – paradise

really. It was a tough time with

all that swimming, eating and

relaxing. I still don’t know how

I coped.

I would like to thank our harbourmaster,

‘cabin boy’, for his

contributions to Bay Harbour

News while I was away. I am

sure you enjoyed his columns as

much as I did when I returned to

work and read them.

I must admit, coming home

to the tail-end of winter is not

what I call fun. However, the

good news is that the first day

of spring has passed, so it can’t

be all bad. With that comes the

promise of fine weather and for

all you boaties out there, the

chance of getting back on to the

water.

Harbourmaster Jim Dilley has

mentioned we will be out and

about over the summer at boat

ramps and on the water. Please

feel free to approach myself or

one of our staff members if you

have any questions about the

Navigation Safety Bylaw or any

other matters regarding rules

and regulations for when you are

on the water.

I have mentioned this before,

but I feel it’s prudent to say again

that, as a boatie, it’s your responsibility

to know the rules and

what you can and cannot do in

certain areas of our waterways.

HELP: Jim Dilley (left) and

Gary Manch will be out and

about over the summer at

boat ramps and on the water

to answer your questions.

We have signs at the prominent

boat ramps and you can also go

to our website www.ecan.govt.

nz and visit the harbourmaster’s

office page, which has a whole

section on recreational boating.

Finally, just a wee reminder

before going out. Check the

weather, check your gear and

boat, wear a life jacket and

remember the skipper is responsible.

Be safe out there and enjoy our

beautiful region.

Governors Bay to Lyttelton raced for 56th time

STILL

GOING: Peter

Coughlan,

72, nears the

finish line in

Lyttelton. He

competed in

the first event

56 years ago.

(right) The

event begun at

Governors Bay

School.

SPORTS

MORE THAN 150 runners lined

up for the 56th Governors Bay to

Lyttelton Road Race on Saturday.

The 10km race was run as a

handicapped event, with runners

given an estimated time which

decided how many minutes after

the first runners they would leave

the start line at Governors Bay

School.

“It was a fantastic day for the

event and everything went really

well,” said organiser Lindsay

Evans.

The race included one competitor

with a special historic

connection to the event.

New Brighton’s Peter Coughlan

proved age is no barrier. The

72-year-old finished in a time of

1hr 8min 8sec. He ran in the first

race in 1962.

His time then was 32min 9sec.

The former electrician and polytechnic

tutor, who underwent

major heart surgery in 2010, also

runs marathons.

Two Sumner Running Club

members took out podium positions

in the masters men section,

with David Fitch finishing

second with a time of 34mins

20sec and Nathan Jones third

with a time of 34min 44sec. The

category was taken out by Chris

Mardon, of the New Brighton

Olympic Athletic Club, in a time

of 33min 38sec.

In the masters women, Sumner’s

Lisa Brignull finished third

in a time of 40min 10sec, behind

Maggie Chorley and Tracy Croft.

Blair McWhirter represented

Sumner on the podium in the senior

men category, coming home

in second with a time of 31min

46sec, 50sec behind winner Sean

Eustace.

PODIUM: Sumner Running

Club’s Lisa Brignull finished

third in the masters women.

Surf’s up in the east while southern coasts stay flat

IT MAY have been a long wet

winter but it’s been one of the

best winters for surf in many

years for Christchurch.

Consistent east and southeasterly

swells and offshore

winds have created great waves

on all the local beaches for the

past three months.

However, there has been a

notable lack of southerly swells

this winter with the great

Southern Ocean swell machine

very quiet.

This has meant our south

facing coasts and the big wave

breaks in the Catlins have been

dormant, in fact the entire

Pacific has noticed the lack of

surf.

Even the Hawaiians are

complaining of their worst

South Pacific swell season in

many years.

Hawaii receives a lot of its

summer time waves from storms

that track below New Zealand.

You can ride a southerly swell

here in New Zealand and then

jump on a plane and chase it all

Aaron's Surf Report

the way to Hawaii’s southern

coast.

Of course, the famous north

shore waves of Hawaii, like

‘sunset’ and ‘pipeline’, get swells

from a different source in the

northern hemisphere winter

season.

The Canterbury Scholastic

Surf team has been training hard

over the winter in preparation

for the national champs at

Gisborne in October. Local

surfers representing include

Thomas Harcourt, Jordan

Sparrow, Caspar McCormick

and Estella Hungerford.

Local surfer Lucy Temoananui

represented New Zealand

at the ISA World SUP and

Paddleboarding Championship

in Denmark last week, helping

the team to a bronze medal

overall.

The event was held in Vorupor

on the north-west coast of

Denmark. The area is promoted

as the “cold Hawaii” but I’m not

so sure about that as the waves

weren’t great.

Lucy surfed well winning her

first round heat and eventually

finishing in 13th place. Surf

conditions were tricky with

strong onshore messy waves.

As we move into spring, we

should see an increase in windy

conditions, more nor’westers

and onshore north-easterlies.

This is the time of year for

short lived north swells (good

for the Breakwater and Taylors)

and good-sized south swells

(good for Kaikoura and Banks

Peninsula).

The water temperature is still

cool at only 9 deg C but this will

gradually increase over the next

six weeks.

See you in the soup.

WORLD STAGE: Lucy Temoananui finished 13th in the women’s

surfing event at the ISA World SUP and Paddleboarding

Championship in Denmark.

New hope for patients

suffering from MS,

Special offer for SepTeMBer - if

you have suffered a stroke, spinal injury

or have MS, then this article is for you.

strokes or spinal injuries

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other physical and mental

health issues, Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment

that brings fast, and often immediate results.

A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan

established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch

in 1993. As she continued her research and medical

practice, she discovered a reflexology network on

the human body, an exciting new discovery that

became the foundation of her new treatment –

acupuncture without needles.

Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt instrument

to stimulate the reflexology points on the face

or other parts of the body. When the point is

stimulated by pressure, a message is sent to the

repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan

explains, the treatment increases energy, which

boosts the body’s healing system.

The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but

that is a slow process. In addition, many people will

start to use their injured part, for example a knee

or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore

prolonging the injury and even causing chronic

pain.

With her powerful treatment, results are produced

very quickly – even instantly.

She likens it to the differences between the

power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane

– other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

reflexology network.

It brings fast results because it is a very precise

treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people

of all ages with many different types of pain in all

parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects.

Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing

low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s

treatment.

Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant

improvement for muscle weakness and numbness

caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke

and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan

reflexology to see lots of instant results videos.

Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology

Network, which introduces the treatment and

explains how it works. Her website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes treatment

videos, where people who have had the treatment

speak about the fast relief it has brought them.

Dr Lan is offering 10 patients of stroke, 10

patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury

half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168,

mobile 027 231 8388.

3 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 1 toilet | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 1 office/study | 1 car-garage | Listing #FM5235

Opportunities to own in the prime

location and great community of Moncks

Bay are rare, particularly at an entry level

price, so this charming cottage could be

just what you have been longing for.

The home offers open, flowing living

spaces warmed by a modern logburner, 2

bedrooms and a sunroom within the main

home plus a further bedroom to the rear

of the home that would also make an ideal

office for those who wish to run a business

from home. Set in mature gardens, with an

abundance of fruit trees there is enough

room for the kids to play without all your

weekend being tied up in the garden.

Versatility is the key to this charming

home, all it needs now is your vision to

unlock its full potential.

The attraction living here is clear with the

Redcliffs School returning, local shopping,

café’s, Barnett Park and sea views an easy

stroll away. Stretch the legs a little more and

the Coastal Pathway leads you round to the

very popular Sumner beach, to make the

most of our wonderful kiwi summers.

Loved and enjoyed by the current owner

for over 35 years it is now time to downsize

and allow another family the opportunity

to secure a home in this wonderful area.

There are no 2nd chances as this home is

for sale on, or before, auction day so do not

delay, make the call and book your viewing

today.
