HELPING HAND: Ferrymead Mitre 10 Mega’s Tony Franc with the new mainsails.<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THE RAIN cleared to sunny<br />

skies and warm north-east<br />

winds, perfect conditions for<br />

Christchurch Yacht Club’s<br />

season opener on Saturday<br />

afternoon.<br />

The formal launch got under<br />

way at noon with an update on<br />

recent developments at the club,<br />

the raising of the club flag, a<br />

glass of champagne and a light<br />

lunch.<br />

Competition followed at 1pm<br />

with about 40 boats racing on<br />

the day.<br />

Six bright orange mainsail sets<br />

donated by Ferrymead Mitre 10<br />

Mega could be spied bobbing out<br />

on the water.<br />

The sails on the club’s optimist<br />

boats, used for learn to sail<br />

classes, were old and worn out so<br />

Mitre 10 offered to replace them,<br />

said club commodore Richard<br />

Ineson.<br />

“These new ones are nice and<br />

bright, good for training. When<br />

the boats go out, they’re easy to<br />

distinguish.”<br />

Numbers at the opening event<br />

were excellent, he said.<br />

After a fall-off in membership<br />

following the earthquakes,<br />

numbers had stabilised and were<br />

now in a growth pattern.<br />

Learn to sail classes start next<br />

week and were full.<br />

The recent success of Team<br />

New Zealand’s campaign had<br />

helped to bring the sport of<br />

yachting back to the forefront.<br />

Residents<br />

fired up<br />

over<br />

footpath<br />

parking<br />

fines<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

RICHMOND HILL Rd residents<br />

are being ticketed by city council<br />

staff for parking on the footpath –<br />

and some have taken umbrage at<br />

the move.<br />

Brian Anderson has lived on<br />

the road for 35 years and says<br />

residents have always parked on<br />

the footpath out of courtesy and<br />

necessity.<br />

He told <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News he<br />

was surprised to receive a $40<br />

ticket out of the blue last month<br />

for something he’s always done.<br />

“Everyone who lives on, or visits,<br />

the lower to middle sections of<br />

Richmond Hill Road parks on the<br />

footpath,” Mr Anderson said.<br />

“It’s too narrow not to. By<br />

parking clear of the footpath, the<br />

road is needlessly narrowed and<br />

obstructed, greatly increasing the<br />

risk of an accident.”<br />

Mr Anderson believed this had<br />

been accepted by both residents<br />

and the city council.<br />

However, earlier this month, he<br />

was ticketed twice and his neighbour<br />

also received one.<br />

THE<br />

EDITOR’S<br />

DESK News.................................3, 7-8<br />

WHAT AN election it’s going to<br />

be on Saturday night.<br />

The best and potentially the<br />

closest in many years, and one<br />

which will shape the country’s<br />

future for sometime.<br />

Star Media, publisher of <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News, will be following<br />

the election on our website www.<br />

star.kiwi and we’ll have reporters<br />

out on the street and bringing<br />

you latest updates through the<br />

afternoon and into the night.<br />

The Star tomorrow will also have<br />

an in-depth election preview.<br />

The polls clearly show people<br />

have shifted to voting for either<br />

National and Labour and this<br />

could spell doom for many<br />

smaller party politicians who<br />

have made it into Parliament on<br />

the back of MMP.<br />

Indications are voter turnout<br />

will be high and which ever party<br />

mobilises its supporters best on<br />

Saturday will win.<br />

Parking fines for residents<br />

•From page 1<br />

Mr Anderson believes the city<br />

council has altered its policy on<br />

footpath parking and should<br />

inform the public.<br />

However, a city council<br />

spokeswoman said there had<br />

been no recent change in its<br />

enforcement policy.<br />

City council transport<br />

operations manager Aaron<br />

Haymes said staff had visited<br />

Richmond Hill Rd this month<br />

following complaints from<br />

residents about vehicles parking<br />

on the footpath.<br />

“This issue is common,<br />

particularly in the hill suburbs,<br />

and officers try to take a<br />

pragmatic approach and weigh<br />

up safety concerns prior to<br />

issuing a notice.”<br />

Mr Haymes said the footpath<br />

on Richmond Hill Rd was<br />

designed to allow vehicles to<br />

park partially over it without<br />

obstructing either the roadway<br />

or the footpath completely.<br />

“In this instance . . . the<br />

footpath was fully blocked,<br />

preventing pedestrian access . . .<br />

(which) poses a serious risk to<br />

pedestrians as they then have to<br />

go on to the road to get past.”<br />

Mr Anderson said he was now<br />

parking half on the footpath<br />

and half on the road.<br />

FINED: Brian and Suwadee Anderson have been parking in the same spot for more than 30<br />

years on Richmond Hill Rd. Now the city council is giving their vehicle tickets for being on<br />

the footpath.<br />

PHOTO MARTIN HUNTER<br />

“However, I do not know if<br />

that is acceptable or not as noone<br />

has responded to me,” he<br />

said.<br />

“My immediate neighbour<br />

is doing much the same, but<br />

further up the hill, everyone<br />

parks hard against the rails as<br />

ever.”<br />

In Brief<br />

COASTAL PATHWAY<br />

The Christchurch Coastal Pathway<br />

group is seeking New Zealand<br />

Transport Agency funding to help<br />

cover a $10 million shortfall for the<br />

Moncks <strong>Bay</strong>-Shag Rock section.<br />

It has asked the city council to<br />

include the pathway within the<br />

Major Cycleways Route programme,<br />

which would allow it to apply for<br />

NZTA assistance. The Linwood-<br />

Central-Heathcote Community<br />

Board is seeking clarification from<br />

city council staff this week about<br />

whether the pathway fits within the<br />

programme’s criteria.<br />

TEDDINGTON CRASH<br />

The driver of a vehicle which rolled<br />

into a ditch near the Wheatsheaf<br />

Tavern about 10.40pm on Saturday<br />

was lucky to escape without injuries.<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong> Fire Brigade officer<br />

in charge Ken Frost said the vehicle<br />

suffered significant damage when<br />

it went off the Governors <strong>Bay</strong>-<br />

Teddington Rd and landed in a creek.<br />

The driver, who was headed towards<br />

Governor’s <strong>Bay</strong>, was from Rangiora.<br />

MUSEUM SITE DELAY<br />

A city council decision on gifting<br />

property at 33-35 London St to the<br />

Lyttelton Historical Museum Society<br />

to rebuild the museum isn’t likely<br />

until October. The decision was to be<br />

made at a full city council meeting<br />

last week, but has been referred to a<br />

hearing panel.<br />

“Now is the moment we’ve been<br />

waiting for. It’s time. This is our<br />

opportunity to build a better, fairer<br />

future for New Zealand. To fix our<br />

healthcare, grow our economy,<br />

respect our environment and to look<br />

after our towns as much as our cities.<br />

It’s time to change things for the<br />

better. I’m ready. We’re ready.”<br />

Jacinda Ardern, Labour Leader<br />

Ruth<br />

Dyson<br />

for Port Hills<br />

As your local Member of Parliament, I listen to<br />

people, work hard and get things done. We need<br />

affordable housing, better mental health services<br />

and truly swimmable rivers and lakes. I want to<br />

be part of a Labour-led government that delivers<br />

these things for all New Zealanders.<br />

Rose McInerney<br />

Principal’s ‘excitement and relief’ over<br />

The Redcliffs community learned this month<br />

that its school will finally be rebuilt at Redcliffs<br />

Park. Principal Rose McInerney talks to Sarla<br />

Donovan about the long battle to keep the<br />

school open<br />

Congratulations Rose. How<br />

does it feel?<br />

It feels really exciting to have<br />

absolute certainly – there can be<br />

no change to the decision and we<br />

know we’re going to have a school<br />

back in Redcliffs. There’s excitement<br />

and relief, like a massive<br />

weight’s been lifted off the many<br />

shoulders that helped with this<br />

battle.<br />

Did you pop some bubbly<br />

afterwards?<br />

We did – we had a great night.<br />

We went out to a restaurant and<br />

had a lovely evening together.<br />

You’ve really got to mark the<br />

celebrations on a long journey<br />

like this.<br />

Were there ever any moments<br />

of doubt that you’d get the<br />

school back to Redcliffs?<br />

We had a lot of roadblocks<br />

along the way but there was such<br />

a determination to keep finding<br />

a way through. I wouldn’t say it<br />

was doubt. Something else would<br />

be put in our way and the many<br />

people who helped thought,<br />

‘right, what are we going to do<br />

about this?’ It was a very, very<br />

determined group with an amazing<br />

skill set.<br />

It must be a fairly unusual<br />

experience for a principal?<br />

Very. I certainly spoke to a<br />

few of the principals who had to<br />

go through the threat of closure<br />

and some that actually had to<br />

handle closure. Such empathy<br />

and shared experience, but no<br />

there wouldn’t be many that have<br />

done this.<br />

Has it changed you?<br />

I’m still the same me that I<br />

was but I’ve probably grown in<br />

strength and fortitude . . . and<br />

determination. I guess I’ve learnt<br />

to read people and situations and<br />

to really get the best out of people<br />

– that’s been a big thing.<br />

What kept you going when<br />

things got tough?<br />

People. Such a strong group<br />

who would know when it was<br />

hard and do amazingly kind<br />

things. Last year, when we were<br />

going through the waiting game,<br />

we had groups of parents arriving<br />

with morning tea and putting<br />

magazines in the staff toilets –<br />

amazing, kind gestures. Emails<br />

of support saying ‘keep going’,<br />

cards, and all of those little gestures<br />

so you knew there’s a lot of<br />

people who care about this. And<br />

RELIEVED: Rose McInerney,<br />

principal of Redcliffs School.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

just doing it for our kids. They’ve<br />

had such a stoic, resilient attitude<br />

since we had to move three times.<br />

That sense of keeping on going<br />

and doing it for the community. I<br />

think all of us that were involved<br />

in fighting the closure knew that<br />

we had a really good chance,<br />

because we had the facts and the<br />

evidence, so you never wanted to<br />

give up.<br />

You certainly had strong<br />

support from the wider community.<br />

We did and, if I could make<br />

special mention of Ruth Dyson.<br />

Since we’ve moved she’s visited<br />

our school every single month,<br />

no matter where we were. She’s<br />

been part of the team, along with<br />

the board, that’s really helped<br />

keep our school open. Every<br />

month, without fail, no matter<br />

what was happening, she calls in<br />

and she sees the staff, the kids. I<br />

think that’s a real measure of a<br />

person.<br />

In your heart of hearts, why<br />

do you think (former education<br />

minister) Hekia Parata didn’t<br />

let you go back to the old site?<br />

Follow election<br />

the<br />

www.star.kiwi<br />

decision to rebuild school in Redcliffs<br />

I THINK she was genuinely<br />

worried about returning us<br />

to that site. She found it hard<br />

to accept that it was right<br />

for our school to return to<br />

there. She wanted to keep<br />

the school open and she did<br />

listen to how important it was<br />

for the community, so we’ve<br />

compromised on this new site.<br />

But the most important thing is<br />

that we’ve kept our school open.<br />

Is there a moment that stands<br />

out over this whole time of battling<br />

to stay?<br />

One of the biggest days was<br />

July last year when (Hekia<br />

Parata) said she was going to do<br />

more work but that our school<br />

was going to stay open. As a<br />

leader, you always hope for the<br />

best and prepare for the worst. I<br />

guess I was mentally preparing,<br />

while still very hopeful, and it<br />

was such an amazing day to hear<br />

the news that our huge amount<br />

of work on submissions and petitions<br />

and going for visits with her<br />

regularly had paid off. That was<br />

huge, because otherwise we were<br />

facing the prospect of closing at<br />

the end of the year, having to put<br />

our kids in different schools and<br />

tell the staff they had no jobs.<br />

That was a huge day. November<br />

was big because we found out we<br />

were moving sites. And then last<br />

week was the final certainty – the<br />

city council agreed to the land<br />

swap and we had a site to go to.<br />

Three big moments.<br />

When did you win the competition<br />

to get Ed Sheeran to visit?<br />

Just after we heard the news<br />

that we were going to close was<br />

when the Ed Sheeran competition<br />

came around. Our entire<br />

staff, who’d just found out they<br />

FIT: As well as<br />

regular early<br />

morning runs,<br />

Rose McInerney<br />

competed in<br />

the 48km Big<br />

Easy Marathon<br />

in Wanaka.<br />

were potentially losing their jobs,<br />

our entire staff and community<br />

put their heart and soul into winning<br />

that competition. So when<br />

we won, we were completely<br />

under threat of closure and it<br />

was such a proud moment that<br />

everyone had put aside their concerns<br />

and achieved something<br />

really positive for the kids. We<br />

did Edcliffs News, we changed<br />

the words to his songs, we had an<br />

Edcliffs mufti-day, and went all<br />

out making it a good time for the<br />

kids. It exemplifies how the staff<br />

operate when under hardship<br />

– turning something really bad<br />

into something awesome. Then<br />

we won and he came to visit the<br />

kids, which just lifted everyone’s<br />

spirits, as well as raising the profile<br />

of what was happening with<br />

the school.<br />

You must feel like you live<br />

and breath your job sometimes?<br />

What do you do to relax?<br />

I’m really lucky. I’ve got three<br />

boys and a very understanding<br />

husband and we definitely have<br />

family time on the weekend. I<br />

run every morning, around the<br />

neighbourhood, often with my<br />

dog Dibley – he’s a spanador<br />

(spaniel/labrador cross). I play<br />

netball for the Kia Toa club. So<br />

I do things to switch off from<br />

school. The boys are 17, 13 and 8.<br />

My husband is awesome; he’s got<br />

a massive job, too, as a national<br />

manager for NZI Insurance.<br />

You got your teaching degree<br />

from Victoria University – are<br />

you a Wellingtonian?<br />

No, I grew up in Nelson, Tahunanui,<br />

by the beach. Dad worked<br />

for a legal firm and mum was<br />

a nurse. My husband got a job<br />

here and we moved here from the<br />

North Island about 16 years ago.<br />

Is teaching in your blood?<br />

Not from mum and dad, but<br />

I’ve got three sisters who are<br />

teachers – one in early childhood,<br />

one in primary and one in<br />

secondary. I’m actually from a<br />

family of six girls, three of us live<br />

here. It was awesome growing up<br />

with five sisters; you learn a lot<br />

of problem-solving skills when<br />

you’re part of a big family – how<br />

to argue well and how to bounce<br />

back from things. I’m the second<br />

youngest. I met my husband<br />

through teachers college – I was<br />

there with his sister, we used to<br />

play squash together.<br />

If I asked one of your<br />

colleagues to describe you, what<br />

do you think they’d say?<br />

Energetic, fair, hopefully<br />

supportive, inclusive (laughs).<br />

My deputy principal’s sitting here<br />

telling me things. It’s hard saying<br />

things about yourself.<br />

There’s only a couple more<br />

weeks until the October<br />

holidays – do you have any<br />

plans?<br />

My family and I are going to<br />

Vietnam – all of us, my husband<br />

and my three lads. A little bit<br />

of adventuring but quite a lot<br />

of beach-time I think. We’ve<br />

worked pretty hard this year so<br />

I’m ready for a bit of a breather.<br />

My Life in a Religious Cult<br />

This personal account, Lilia Tarawa exposes the shocking<br />

secrets of the cult, with its rigid rules and oppressive<br />

control of women. She describes her fear when her<br />

family questioned Gloriavale’s beliefs and practices.<br />

When her parents fled with their children, Lilia was forced<br />

to make a desperate choice: to stay or to leave. No<br />

matter what she chose, she would lose people she<br />

loved. In the outside world, Lilia struggled. Would she<br />

What Am I Supposed<br />

To Eat?<br />

By Libby Weaver<br />

For so many people today, food is complicated.<br />

They’re told to make `healthy’ choices yet this could<br />

include anything from an apple to a packet of<br />

sugar-free biscuits. They have lost touch with how<br />

much to eat, how often and how their food choices<br />

are impacting on their health - and then there are<br />

those all-consuming moments when they feel like<br />

no amount of food could satisfy their hungry hearts.<br />

The latest book by ten times number one best-selling<br />

author Dr Libby Weaver, What am I Supposed to Eat?,<br />

puts the reader back in control of their food choices.<br />

moment of pure joy.’ In his stunning new baking<br />

and desserts cookbook Yotam Ottolenghi and<br />

his long-time collaborator Helen Goh bring the<br />

Sweet includes over 110 innovative recipes. There is<br />

something here to delight everyone - from simple<br />

recipes parents can make with their children to<br />

Call for longer library hours<br />

But don’t<br />

expect it<br />

this year<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

IT COULD be next year<br />

before the opening hours<br />

at Sumner’s new library are<br />

reviewed.<br />

Residents have complained<br />

about the limited weekend<br />

operation, with Saturday,<br />

10am-1pm, the only time it<br />

opens its doors.<br />

Sumner<br />

Residents<br />

Association<br />

spokeswoman<br />

Kimberley<br />

Mossman said<br />

Kimberley<br />

Mossman<br />

many locals<br />

had been<br />

“surprised and<br />

disappointed” at<br />

the opening hours.<br />

“Most we have spoken with<br />

would like the Saturday hours<br />

increased and for the library<br />

to open on Sunday, too,” Ms<br />

Mossman said.<br />

“It’s an issue the association<br />

hopes to resolve with council.”<br />

LYTTELTON<br />

City council head of<br />

libraries and information<br />

Carolyn Robertson said the<br />

operating hours of the city’s<br />

libraries varied according to<br />

demographics.<br />

“Larger-sized library<br />

facilities with extended<br />

collections, services, staffing<br />

and hours of operation<br />

are generally situated in<br />

communities that draw on a<br />

greater population base,” she<br />

said.<br />

“This includes Te Hāpua:<br />

Community and School<br />

Library, Linwood Library and<br />

New Brighton Library.”<br />

Ms Robertson said the<br />

opening hours at Sumner<br />

were based on the needs of<br />

a “smaller community”, and<br />

what was in place prior to the<br />

previous library’s closure.<br />

“Any increases to library<br />

hours . . . would have financial<br />

implications and would need<br />

to go through the Annual Plan<br />

or Long Term Plan process<br />

and include community<br />

consultation,” she said.<br />

BOOKWORM:<br />

Sumner<br />

resident Lucy,<br />

of the first<br />

customers<br />

to visit the<br />

new Sumner<br />

library, which<br />

is open from<br />

10am-1pm on<br />

Saturday.<br />

councillor Sara Templeton said<br />

she would raise the matter at<br />

the next Linwood-Central-<br />

Heathcote Community Board<br />

meeting.<br />

People were disappointed<br />

that the library wasn’t open<br />

for very long on weekends, she<br />

said.<br />

“It’s a fantastic new library,<br />

in a beautiful building and<br />

it’s important that we get the<br />

budget to make it as accessible<br />

as possible.”<br />

Yacht club<br />

has wind<br />

in its sails<br />

again<br />

•From page 1<br />

“It’s not an automatic effect<br />

but there are things happening.<br />

Grant Dalton and some of the<br />

Team New Zealand crew are<br />

coming down for a fundraising<br />

event next month,” Mr Ineson<br />

said.<br />

“They are supporting the<br />

Pleasant Point Yacht Club<br />

rebuild. It’s all part and parcel of<br />

promoting yachting and we<br />

hope it will have ongoing<br />

benefits.”<br />

Sailing from Moncks <strong>Bay</strong><br />

since 1891, Christchurch Yacht<br />

Club is one of the oldest in the<br />

country.<br />

It famously produced New<br />

Zealand’s first Olympic sailing<br />

gold medallists, Peter Mander<br />

and Jack Cropp, in Melbourne in<br />

1956, and in 1992 Lesley Egnot<br />

won a silver in Barcelona.<br />

A new $1.17 million boatshed<br />

is set to be completed by<br />

Christmas, replacing the one<br />

demolished in June, <strong>20</strong>11.<br />

NEVER IN his wildest dreams<br />

did Christ’s College Old Boy<br />

Hamish Thomas think he would<br />

be awarded a scholarship to<br />

Cambridge University.<br />

But in just a few weeks time<br />

the 18-year-old will be at Corpus<br />

Christi College, studying<br />

physics, mathematics and chemistry<br />

on a three-year Girdlers<br />

Scholarship for undergraduate<br />

study.<br />

“Throughout the whole application<br />

process, I never, ever<br />

thought I would win the thing.<br />

I couldn’t believe it when I was<br />

told earlier this year,” says Hamish<br />

who completed year 13 last<br />

year, and will leave Christchurch<br />

on Saturday.<br />

From Mt Pleasant, Hamish<br />

went to Redcliffs School and<br />

Cathedral Grammar before<br />

winning a Somes Exhibition<br />

Scholarship to Christ’s College,<br />

where maths and sciences<br />

proved his specialty areas.<br />

Those same disciplines will be<br />

his focus while on the Girdlers<br />

Scholarship, one of which<br />

is provided annually for an<br />

outstanding New Zealand applicant.<br />

The Worshipful Company of<br />

Girdlers has had an association<br />

with New Zealand since 1933<br />

and in 1950 at the instigation of<br />

the 3 rd Viscount Brentford, the<br />

company established a scholarship<br />

for an outstanding New<br />

Zealander to go to England to<br />

study for a degree.<br />

“I’m looking forward to the<br />

challenges and changes ahead<br />

and can’t wait to meet the diverse<br />

and brilliant people studying<br />

and working at Cambridge,”<br />

Hamish says.<br />

“I think I was chosen because<br />

SKILLS: Former Christ’s College and Redcliffs School student<br />

Hamish Thomas has won a three-year scholarship to study<br />

maths and sciences at Cambridge University in England.<br />

I excelled in different areas. The<br />

combination of my academic<br />

and cultural strengths possibly<br />

made me a unique candidate.<br />

“The selectors showed great<br />

interest in theatresports, which<br />

fosters creative and flexible<br />

thinking. I suggested these were<br />

very important skills for a scientist<br />

and I think they agreed.”<br />

Hamish’s theatresports team<br />

from Christ’s College won the<br />

South Island competition and<br />

the debating team he took part<br />

in from years 10-13, won the<br />

Russell McVeagh Canterbury<br />

Regional Competition last year<br />

and came second in the interschool<br />

competition.<br />

For Hamish, the move to Britain<br />

and into one of the world’s<br />

most prestigious universities, is<br />

still slightly unreal.<br />

“I’ll start studies on October 3<br />

and because I’m living in a normal<br />

university hall of residence,<br />

I imagine it’s going to be fairly<br />

easy to meet other students and<br />

make friends.<br />

The style of lecture delivery is<br />

going to be different from what<br />

he experienced earlier this year<br />

when completing a semester<br />

in health sciences at Otago<br />

University.<br />

“There were hundreds in some<br />

of those lectures, but I think at<br />

Cambridge there will be lots of<br />

tutorials with teaching fellows<br />

and professors.”<br />

With a brother at Auckland<br />

University studying animation<br />

and design, a father who is a<br />

civil engineer and a mother who<br />

is head of english at Christ’s<br />

College, Hamish says he will<br />

miss family, friends and the<br />

New Zealand connection.<br />

our community<br />

Spring is here<br />

By the time this edition prints it will be less than a week until the beginning of Daylight Savings! With<br />

<strong>September</strong> – November being a peak selling period in NZ there is a surge in property listings as owners<br />

want to sell and make new plans as they approach the end of the year. If you are preparing to sell your<br />

home these simple tips will help you secure top dollar. It’s the combination of every component of the<br />

sale process that contributes to a premium result.<br />

• Clear kitchen benches of all clutter, pop toasters and kettles on a tray that can be moved in<br />

and out of the cupboard with ease<br />

• Take magnets, and paperwork off fridges<br />

• Clear away clutter from bedroom side tables, leaving only bedside lamps and one accessory<br />

• Tidy linen cupboards and kitchen cupboards, if they are bulging at the seams it gives the<br />

buyer an impression of less room<br />

• Get rid of all unnecessary cables, wires, cords and chargers. If they have to be seen, invest in<br />

cord organisers to keep them together as one unit<br />

• Invest in a few cute baskets that you can bundle loose items into and pop onto a shelf in the<br />

garage or cupboard for open homes<br />

LPC’S new staff car park<br />

by the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

ferry will reduce bus<br />

parking to one space and<br />

remove the informal drop<br />

off area for ferry users.<br />

You said:<br />

YOUR SAY: What do you think of<br />

port car parking. Send your views to sarla.<br />

donovan@starmedia.kiwi<br />

Mark Watson – Lyttelton<br />

Port Company car park to<br />

leave only enough space for<br />

one bus at the wharf? This is<br />

nothing short of LPC sabotaging<br />

public transport in Lyttelton.<br />

If there’s only enough<br />

space for one bus at the wharf<br />

there will be chaos down there.<br />

Both the 535 and the 28 service<br />

the ferry at the wharf. It’s the<br />

end of the trip for the 28 bus,<br />

so it has to wait there between<br />

dropping off passengers for the<br />

ferry, and picking up passengers<br />

from the ferry. The buses<br />

taking passengers home after<br />

work often get held up in traffic,<br />

so it can’t be predicted exactly<br />

when each bus will arrive<br />

at the wharf. It’s not unusual<br />

for two 28 buses to arrive at<br />

the wharf at the same time, or<br />

for the 535 and two 28s to be<br />

there all together. LPC could<br />

have put the car parking for<br />

its new headquarters in many<br />

other places. But it chose to<br />

stick it in the middle of the access<br />

way between the ferry and<br />

Lyttelton town. The comment<br />

from Mr Simmers says it all:<br />

providing an extra bus parking<br />

space “wasn’t a good utilisation<br />

of the land area.” So providing<br />

private car parks for the headquarters<br />

is better utilisation of<br />

that land?<br />

Marcia Bryant – City<br />

Council transport operations<br />

manager says Lyttelton Port<br />

Company headquarters car<br />

park may mean ferry passengers<br />

will have to use the<br />

bus stop on Norwich Quay. No<br />

way. For people who struggle<br />

with stairs, and families with<br />

young children and buggies,<br />

that’s like being dropped off<br />

on Moorhouse Ave to get a<br />

bus from the interchange.<br />

Come on city council ECan,<br />

and LPC – someone please use<br />

some common sense, act with<br />

decency, and ensure there’s<br />

fair public access between the<br />

buses and the ferry.<br />

Kim Glennie – There<br />

should be a quick pick-up/<br />

drop-off zone. I pick up and<br />

drop off my 10-year-old<br />

daughter and I don’t like her<br />

to walk around the edge of the<br />

port by herself. Sometimes I<br />

am delayed by up to 15min<br />

by a red light on the tunnel.<br />

I do park illegally by the bus<br />

stop and run to get her. When<br />

my children were young I<br />

found it difficult to negotiate<br />

the old stairs and overhead<br />

bridge with two pre-schoolers,<br />

a buggy and two car seats. I<br />

can imagine some of the older<br />

generation would appreciate a<br />

close pick up as well. We use<br />

the ferry connecting bus service<br />

on a regular basis and find<br />

its close proximity works well,<br />

especially when it’s raining.<br />

Ann Thornton – I am an<br />

82-year-old Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

resident. I make frequent use<br />

of the ferry and bus to save me<br />

driving into Christchurch and<br />

to provide me with contact<br />

with my neighbours. I also<br />

have a young grandchild who<br />

proudly travels on the ferry on<br />

his own to visit having been<br />

dropped off by parents on<br />

the town side to the service. I<br />

advocate strongly for a modest<br />

sized drop-off/pick-up space<br />

on the Lyttelton jetty. I also<br />

advocate for the retention of<br />

the bus service to the jetty and<br />

space for two buses as the area<br />

is serviced by both 28 and 535<br />

buses.<br />

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi<br />

Local Views<br />

•From page 11<br />

Alison Ross – I acknowledge<br />

Richard Suggate’s concerns<br />

over the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

ferry access but he appears to be<br />

unacquainted with important<br />

background detail. In the political<br />

and social maelstrom following<br />

9/11 US Homeland Security<br />

released a series of non-negotiable<br />

security requirements to all ports<br />

worldwide which trans-shipped<br />

goods directly across the United<br />

States border.<br />

Unless security management<br />

was brought up to the required<br />

level ports would be permanently<br />

excluded from all future direct<br />

trans-shipping operations. The<br />

proposed, and since confirmed,<br />

security perimeter includes the<br />

present site of the ferry services,<br />

sounding the inevitable death<br />

knell to all future ferry operations<br />

from that site.<br />

Lyttelton Port Company,<br />

cognisant of potential real and<br />

emotional disruption to residents<br />

consequent to the major security<br />

perimeter changes allowed the<br />

ferry operations to continue on<br />

the site as a temporary measure.<br />

It was my opinion at the time<br />

that although the company was<br />

attempting to ease the public into<br />

accepting the security changes, by<br />

not grasping the nettle it created<br />

a false sense among Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> residents that this could,<br />

with lobbying, ensure the ferry<br />

site would remain permanently<br />

below Oxford St.<br />

LPC would have been better to<br />

announce a planned move of the<br />

ferry operations to the west of the<br />

inner harbour at Dampier <strong>Bay</strong><br />

immediately as talks were already<br />

under way to develop that area<br />

as a dedicated public recreation<br />

area, with yacht berthing facilities,<br />

food services and a ferry/bus<br />

terminus along with a covered<br />

walkway from the ferry.<br />

I note that discussions on the<br />

bus service included continuing<br />

the circular route around the Lyttelton<br />

commercial centre either<br />

before or after the terminus pickup/drop-off.<br />

The present situation<br />

has not been helped by a less than<br />

objective intransigence by certain<br />

of the former Lyttelton/Mount<br />

Herbert Community Board to the<br />

necessary and inevitable changes.<br />

Had the proposed ferry terminal<br />

changes been announced earlier<br />

they could have been included<br />

in phase one of the Dampier <strong>Bay</strong><br />

redevelopment. I continue to be<br />

disappointed when hearing complaints<br />

from Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

residents about having to walk<br />

from Dampier <strong>Bay</strong> to London St<br />

in the future.<br />

They need to recognise the<br />

importance of Port Lyttelton to the<br />

whole of Canterbury. The physical<br />

centre of the port is around<br />

Dampier <strong>Bay</strong>. Ferry patrons should<br />

be aware that residents from West<br />

Lyttelton have been walking to Lyttelton’s<br />

commercial centre without<br />

complaint for over 100 years.<br />

Calder Green Reserve opened<br />

THE HISTORY of Calder Green<br />

Reserve is now on display for all<br />

to see.<br />

A new sign explaining the significance<br />

of the lower Heathcote<br />

reserve was unveiled recently.<br />

Formerly known as Devils<br />

Elbow, Calder Green Reserve is<br />

a salt marsh and riparian area<br />

lying between Ferry and Tunnel<br />

Rds.<br />

Forest and Bird maintains the<br />

area with input from the city<br />

council and community groups.<br />

Heathcote ward city councillor<br />

Sara Templeton was at the opening<br />

of the project.<br />

Her daughter has been involved<br />

through her local guide<br />

group, which has planted swathes<br />

of ngaio over the past few years.<br />

She complimented Forest and<br />

Bird on the work done so far.<br />

“I’m looking forward to all<br />

the groups working together on<br />

a range of challenges including<br />

educating dog owners and the<br />

wider public about the native<br />

wildlife present in the area and<br />

how to protect it.”<br />

Mick Ingram the volunteer<br />

manager of the Calder Green Reserve<br />

project is designing habitat<br />

to suit all the wildlife of the area<br />

and has a particular soft-spot for<br />

lizards.<br />

He’s hopeful that as people visit<br />

OPEN: Sara Templeton, Mick Ingram, and Colleen Philip cut<br />

the ribbon at the opening of Calder Green Reserve.<br />

the reserve and learn more about<br />

the area, “they will come to love<br />

its quiet serenity as I do.”<br />

“The hope is more people will<br />

become kaitiaki (caretakers) of<br />

this stretch of river and help its<br />

wildlife thrive into the future,”<br />

Mr Ingram said.<br />

NEW!<br />

CONSERVATION: Lyttelton Primary School pupils Maia, Rose, Zoey and<br />

Ridley with some of the traps they received from DOC and the Lyttelton Port<br />

Company.<br />

New traps, bait helps<br />

pupils control pests<br />

TRAPS AND bait costing<br />

about $8000 will help<br />

reduce rat, possum and<br />

stoat populations on<br />

Banks Peninsula.<br />

The Little River Trap<br />

Library and Lyttleton<br />

Primary School have been<br />

given more than 50 traps<br />

by the Department of<br />

Conservation.<br />

Conservation Minister<br />

Maggie Barry and<br />

Associate Conservation<br />

Minister Nicky Wagner<br />

presented the traps at a<br />

Predator Free <strong>20</strong>50 event<br />

last week.<br />

Lyttelton Primary<br />

School received 15 traps,<br />

including five possum<br />

traps, from the Lyttelton<br />

Port Company.<br />

The school plans to start<br />

trapping on land above<br />

the township that’s owned<br />

by LPC.<br />

Said Ms Barry: “The<br />

easy-to-use traps will<br />

enable the school children<br />

to take their conservation<br />

work to the next level.”<br />

The Little River Trap<br />

Library was the first of<br />

its kind in New Zealand<br />

and lends traps for free to<br />

people wanting to protect<br />

wildlife on their properties<br />

It was given 40 traps<br />

and bait, enabling it to<br />

continue its work.<br />

Ms Barry said the two<br />

projects were examples of<br />

“collaboration and tireless<br />

dedication,” helping to<br />

eradicate predators and<br />

create pockets of safe habitat.<br />

Ms Wagner said there<br />

were signs the programme<br />

was already having an<br />

impact.<br />

“Tui are beginning to<br />

prosper on the peninsula<br />

and the white-flippered<br />

penguin colony in Flea<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>/Pohatu has doubled<br />

in size since this work<br />

began,”<br />

“Eventually, I believe<br />

these predator-free areas<br />

will expand to cover<br />

the whole of Lyttelton,<br />

Banks Peninsula, wider<br />

Christchurch and<br />

beyond,” Ms Wagner said.<br />

“I’m confident that by<br />

<strong>20</strong>50 we’ll have a rat, stoat<br />

and possum-free New<br />

Zealand.”<br />

Artist’s uses rural artefacts to<br />

raise funds for children’s home<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

LYTTELTON artist<br />

Lisa Patterson has fond<br />

memories of fossicking<br />

through old farm sheds<br />

and barns to find faded<br />

certificates, tarnished<br />

medals and dented<br />

trophies.<br />

She said the objects<br />

symbolise past successes<br />

at A&P shows, dressage<br />

events, best bull and other<br />

farm day achievements.<br />

“I like trophies. I sometimes<br />

go to farms and I’m<br />

drawn to the certificates,<br />

plaques, cups and awards<br />

that line walls or shelves,<br />

seemingly forgotten,” Lisa<br />

says.<br />

Such memories have<br />

inspired the Lyttelton<br />

artist’s contribution to this<br />

year’s Sculpture on the<br />

Peninsula – a collection<br />

of trophies carved out of<br />

local oak with lead and<br />

plaster elements.<br />

She’s hoping her work<br />

will be displayed in the<br />

stables at Louden Farm,<br />

Teddington, where the<br />

biennial fundraiser for<br />

Cholmondeley Children’s<br />

Home will be held in<br />

November.<br />

Contributors are encouraged<br />

to produce site<br />

specific works to display in<br />

the paddocks, sheds, farm<br />

buildings and among the<br />

trees on the farm’s varied<br />

landscapes.<br />

From 95 submissions,<br />

Christchurch Art Gallery<br />

curator Lara Strongman<br />

and landscape architect<br />

Dany Kamo chose about<br />

62 works, with artists<br />

including Paul Dibble,<br />

Cheryl Lucas, Mark<br />

Whyte, Hannah Kidd,<br />

Aaron Te Rangiao, Alison<br />

Erikson and Sam Mahon.<br />

Materials range from<br />

dead animal carcasses to<br />

bronze, steel and ceramics,<br />

and prices go from $100<br />

up to about $30,000.<br />

Horotane Valley’s biggest National fan $100,000<br />

• By Bridget Rutherford<br />

IF YOU’VE seen a friendly<br />

looking chap parked on the<br />

side of the road with a National<br />

Party sign waving to motorists<br />

– that’s Rae Mills.<br />

The 76-year-old has been<br />

sitting on the side of busy roads<br />

at peak travel times promoting<br />

National every election for the<br />

last decade.<br />

The Horotane<br />

Valley resident<br />

has been volunteering<br />

for the<br />

party for much<br />

longer.<br />

Mr Mills (left),<br />

who moved to<br />

Christchurch in 1984, wasn’t<br />

always a National supporter.<br />

He switched from Labour<br />

about 40 years ago when he was<br />

chairman of Southland’s Otatara<br />

Kindergarten committee.<br />

National had been in Government<br />

and told Mr Mills it had<br />

pledged money towards a loan<br />

for the kindergarten.<br />

But when Labour won the<br />

1972 general election, Mr Mills<br />

was told the Government<br />

did not have the money in its<br />

budget.<br />

Mr Mills said he then<br />

marched into National’s Wallace<br />

MP Brian Talboys’ office to<br />

see if he could help.<br />

“He said I’ll sort that out for<br />

you,” Mr Mills said.<br />

“Eleven days later I got a reply<br />

from Education Minister Phil<br />

Amos, saying approval has been<br />

granted for your loan.<br />

“I was quite impressed, because<br />

I was Labour.”<br />

He has been volunteering for<br />

National ever since.<br />

Mr Mills has been parking<br />

on the side of Ferry Rd in Ferrymead,<br />

Halswell Rd and State<br />

Highway 1 between Christchurch<br />

and Amberley waving to<br />

passersby since July.<br />

He does it on weekdays for a<br />

couple of hours in the mornings<br />

and evenings.<br />

“About 80 per cent of people<br />

wave,” he said.<br />

“I believe in what I’m doing, I<br />

know it’s working.”<br />

His role was to encourage<br />

people to party vote National,<br />

followed by its candidate for<br />

each electorate, he said.<br />

DEDICATED:<br />

Rae Mills, of<br />

Horotane Valley,<br />

spends a couple<br />

of hours in<br />

the morning<br />

and evening<br />

promoting<br />

National for<br />

the general<br />

election.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN<br />

HUNTER<br />

“It really is about people ticking<br />

both boxes.”<br />

He said the outcome of the<br />

<strong>September</strong> 23 election would be<br />

tight – but he hoped National<br />

would come out on top.<br />

Mr Mills, who is a former<br />

builder and now works at Mitre<br />

10 Mega Ferrymead, said he was<br />

happy to continue volunteering<br />

during election time if his wife<br />

Pat says it’s okay.<br />

“I’m still fit and well and able<br />

to do it.”<br />

plan for<br />

Allandale<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

A $100,000 regeneration project<br />

around the headwaters of the<br />

Allandale Stream is starting to show<br />

positive results.<br />

The Allandale Stream Reserve<br />

Project aims to regenerate native<br />

bush and riparian vegetation at the<br />

stream headwaters to provide good<br />

habitat for native fish, birds and<br />

invertebrates.<br />

Since <strong>20</strong>11 more than 4.5km of<br />

livestock fencing has been installed<br />

to keep stock out of the stream and<br />

about 12,000 trees, shrubs and native<br />

grasses planted.<br />

Project manager Denis Aldridge<br />

is the general manager at Living<br />

Springs Camp and Conference Centre,<br />

which sits on 400 hectares of<br />

land and which includes Allandale<br />

Stream.<br />

“It’s a big project to plant that<br />

many plants,” he said. “We’ve had<br />

the limited service army volunteers,<br />

various youth groups, holiday camp<br />

groups, prison groups.”<br />

The Banks Peninsula Water Zone<br />

Committee have funded $115,141<br />

towards the project.<br />

Values-wise, says Mr Aldridge,<br />

this is where he wants Living<br />

Springs to go.<br />

Planned approach to replanting<br />

As National<br />

Party MP<br />

Nuk Korako<br />

writes, Te<br />

Tapuwai o<br />

Rakau Trust<br />

will leave<br />

a legacy<br />

for future<br />

generations<br />

It is three days until the election.<br />

This will be a busy three days<br />

as my team and I take our last<br />

chance of getting our message<br />

out there – that only National<br />

can continue the strong growth<br />

in the economy that allows us<br />

to improve public services and<br />

support our most vulnerable<br />

New Zealanders into better<br />

lives.<br />

Many people like having multiple<br />

MPs serving the Port Hills<br />

electorate, so we are making sure<br />

they know that the best way to<br />

keep an MP in both Government<br />

and opposition is to give<br />

their electorate vote to me, Nuk<br />

Korako.<br />

But today I want to talk about<br />

something local, and very close<br />

to my heart. That is the replanting<br />

of the Port Hills.<br />

After the fires earlier this year,<br />

what became really apparent<br />

to me was that there are many<br />

groups doing an awesome job of<br />

HELP: Replanting efforts on the Port Hills need to be<br />

co-ordinated.<br />

providing trees and getting volunteers<br />

to replant the damaged<br />

areas of our hills.<br />

But to date there hasn’t been<br />

a structured approach to ensure<br />

that we replant the Port Hills<br />

in a way that meets cultural<br />

and ecological best practice.<br />

So I have been working with a<br />

group of like-minded and very<br />

passionate people to establish<br />

a trust that can assist with cocoordinating<br />

planned cultural<br />

and ecological reforestation<br />

programs.<br />

That work came to fruition<br />

earlier this month, with the<br />

launch of Te Tapuwae o Rakau<br />

Trust (The Tree Footprints<br />

Trust.) The trust was launched<br />

with the symbolic planting<br />

of a tree at the Christchurch<br />

Adventure Park, and is now<br />

working with already established<br />

organisations, Ngai Tahu and<br />

landowners to plan the first<br />

planting.<br />

I believe that this co-ordinated<br />

approach by the trust, to engage<br />

with all groups, can only enhance<br />

the great work done by all.<br />

We have the opportunity to<br />

leave a legacy of replanted and<br />

new native forests that match the<br />

ecological and cultural footprint<br />

of the Port Hills, and encourage<br />

our native plants and wildlife to<br />

flourish.<br />

Akaroa go from film<br />

sets to the stage<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

FROM DESIGNING costumes<br />

to fit Orlando Bloom to helping<br />

create blockbuster film sets –<br />

Akaroa’s John Harding and<br />

Lesley Burkes-Harding know<br />

how to transform a show into a<br />

full visual experience.<br />

Audiences at the<br />

Isaac Theatre Royal<br />

have been seeing an<br />

endless stream of<br />

costumes embedded<br />

Lesley<br />

Burkes-<br />

Harding<br />

John<br />

Harding<br />

with sequins and<br />

neo-Gothic style<br />

sets designed by the<br />

Akaroa couple in<br />

Showbiz Christchurch’s<br />

latest production<br />

of Sister Act.<br />

Hundreds of costumes<br />

were designed<br />

by Burkes-Harding<br />

for the show, while<br />

her husband created<br />

the set which has<br />

toured all over the country.<br />

Between them, they have 65<br />

years of experience working in<br />

television, consortium productions<br />

and major films including<br />

Avatar, King Kong and The Lord<br />

of the Rings.<br />

While working on The Hobbit,<br />

Burkes-Harding designed<br />

the costumes for Bloom in his<br />

role as the elf Legolas.<br />

Like most of the productions<br />

the couple have worked on, the<br />

design for Sister Act has been a<br />

large undertaking.<br />

“It is always a big job . . . there<br />

are many hundreds of sequin<br />

fabrics that I bought for that<br />

show,” Burkes-Harding said.<br />

She said in theatre, costumes<br />

need to be sturdy and well<br />

designed to suit the different<br />

people who wear them.<br />

It is similar for Harding, who<br />

said every set he designs needs<br />

to be “elastic” to adapt to each<br />

venue on which it is staged.<br />

“One of the first things was<br />

solving how to do multiple scene<br />

changes, so I came up with the<br />

idea of a double conveyor belt,”<br />

he said.<br />

Other key elements in the set<br />

include the use of LED lighting<br />

to recreate the “exquisite” quality<br />

of the stained-glass church<br />

windows, and a narthex that he<br />

found in a recycling yard near<br />

Rangiora, which came from<br />

church rubble after the February<br />

22, <strong>20</strong>11, earthquake.<br />

•The show ends on<br />

Saturday<br />

Expect night-time traffic delays at the Lyttelton Tunnel<br />

If you are driving at night through the Lyttelton Tunnel,<br />

expect occasional delays from later this month through<br />

until December <strong>20</strong>18.<br />

For a few nights each month, just one traffic lane in the tunnel will be open and on<br />

occasions both traffic lanes will need to be closed.<br />

These traffic lane closures are required as work begins on a $28.7 million fire<br />

protection upgrade inside the Lyttelton Tunnel, to increase the safety and<br />

resilience of this essential freight route for both Christchurch and Canterbury.<br />

A project of this scale and complexity makes some traffic lane closures inside the<br />

tunnel unavoidable. They are needed so hundreds of water nozzles that are an<br />

integral part of the fire protection upgrade can be installed in the tunnel ceiling.<br />

To minimise disruptions for tunnel users, the work will be done at night when<br />

traffic flows are lightest.<br />

HOW TO PLAN FOR THESE DELAYS<br />

• A three-monthly calendar for all planned night-time single lane closures<br />

and full closures will be available at nzta.govt.nz/projects/lyttelton-tunnel/<br />

• Lane closure details will be displayed on electronic message boards at the<br />

tunnel at least two days before they happen.<br />

• Closures are planned to the best of the project team’s ability, but may be<br />

subject to change.<br />

• Allow extra time for tunnel travel on these dates.<br />

• Emergency access through the tunnel will still be provided during all<br />

traffic lane closures.<br />

• Most full tunnel traffic lane closures will be from March <strong>20</strong>18.<br />

• Real-time traffic information for the Lyttelton Tunnel area can be found<br />

at www.tfc.govt.nz<br />

For more information about the Lyttelton Tunnel fire protection upgrade, go to www.nzta.govt.nz/projects/lyttelton-tunnel/<br />

Find up-to-date information on road conditions, delays and closures at www.nzta.govt.nz/traffic and on the Transport Agency’s<br />

official Twitter and Facebook pages www.nzta.govt.nz/contact-us/connect-with-us/.<br />

Pupils performed their work to a supportive audience at the school’s performance cafe.<br />

Standing on the stage and speaking into the microphone allowed them to work on their volume, clarity, fluency, expression and<br />
