Big plans for sleepy Church Bay

• By Bridget Rutherford

A PUBLIC meeting will be

held next week to discuss

concerns over a plan to build

a commercial development in

sleepy Church Bay (above).

Spence Developments is proposing

to build a supermarket,

four shops, a coffee shop, and a

30-seat cinema on the 8311m 2 of

land at 139-143 Marine Drive,

behind the On The Spot store.

Plans show there would also

be 111 car parks, which could

be accessed from Marine

Drive and Patiki Pl.

The developers are also

considering reopening a

petrol station on the site.

The resource consent

application is expected

to be lodged with the city

council next month.

The meeting will be

held at Diamond Harbour

Community Hall on Tuesday,

Richard

Suggate

October 17, at 7.45pm.

Developer Doug

Spence, planning consultant

James Hook and

architect Dean Grant

will speak about the

proposal.

Diamond Harbour

Community Association

chairman Richard Suggate

said neighbouring

properties had received

pamphlets about the plan last

week, which caused a “stir”.

“This is sleepy little Diamond

Harbour.”

Mr Suggate said people would

welcome more shops if they

could get the business, but the

population was growing slowly.

“People come to Diamond

Harbour because they’re looking

for something different from

town,” he said.

Injury

fears at

Diamond

Harbour

ferry

wharf

• By Bridget Rutherford

FEARS PASSENGERS will

injure themselves while

getting on and off the ferry at

Diamond Harbour Wharf has

prompted staff to look into what

improvements can be made.

Black Cat

Cruises told the

Banks Peninsula

Community

Board about

the difficulty

of passengers

boarding and

disembarking the

ferry from the

Paul

Milligan

Diamond Harbour side.

Chief executive Paul Milligan

said there was no ramp leading

onto the ferry, so the passengers

had to climb down steps.

There was a risk of passengers

falling between the wharf and

ferry into the water, he said.

“We’ve just identified with the

number of people we’re carrying

across there, getting on and off

the boat at the Diamond Harbour

side is not quite as easy as

we would have liked.”

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

SLEEPY CHURCH Bay may not

be so sleepy anymore.

We reveal today (see page 1)

plans to build a commercial

development there which would

include a supermarket, four shops,

a coffee shop, and a 30-seat cinema

behind the On the Spot store.

There would also be 111 car parks.

And needless to say the plans

are causing a stir.

If you read the feedback (see

page 10) to our article last week

over an idea to turn the failed

Maori Village site at Ferrymead

into a dog park, then it’s a nobrainer.

The verdict is unanimous – dogs

should be let loose on the site.

Readers also have given the

thumbs up to the re-opening of

the Redcliffs Dairy.

It’s all about the ice creams and

of course Minod Vinod’s great

service.

Ferry parking fight continues

• By Emily O’Connell

MORE OPTIONS will be

looked into before bus parking

is decreased at the Diamond

Harbour Ferry terminal in

Lyttelton.

It follows a decision by the

Lyttelton Port Company to

reduce bus parking spaces from

three to one and not provide a

pick-up/drop-off zone.

An urgent meeting was held

by the Banks Peninsula Community

Board with the LPC,

Environment Canterbury and

the city council on Monday.

It was decided

at the meeting

that the LPC and

ECan would look

into more options

and come back to

the board in a few

weeks’ time.

Peter Davie

Diamond Harbour

Residents’

Association

chairman Richard Suggate said

the further investigation is good

but he’s not pessimistic nor optimistic

about the final outcome.

He said the LPC should put

the public interest above their

own.

Community board member

Jed O’Donoghue said he’s

pleased other resolutions will

be considered but ultimately the

DECISIONS: The Lyttelton Port Company and ECan are going

to look into more parking options near the ferry terminal.

board don’t have the final say.

“At the end of the day we can

only influence them because its

their land,” he said.

An online petition calling for

better public access to the Diamond

Harbour ferry terminal

has attracted more than 230

signatures in two weeks.

Set up by the Diamond Harbour

Residents Association, the

petition calls on the city council

and Environment Canterbury

to “ensure that within 100m of

the Diamond Harbour ferry

terminal, there is adequate bus

parking on the Lyttelton wharf

and that there is a drop-off/pickup

zone for private vehicles.”

Mr Suggate told a board meeting

two weeks ago that the LPC’s

refusal to provide a drop-off

zone would force the infirm,

disabled or with heavy parcels,

to walk from Norwich Quay.

Port company chief executive

Peter Davie said LPC staff met

with the Banks Peninsula Community

Board on July 31.

Mr Davie previously said the

they are working with ECan to

ensure it has minimum impact

on current services and it will

not affect ferry users at all.

He said an upgrade of the existing

Diamond Harbour Ferry

facilities will take place at the

same time as the LPC staff car

park is being built adjacent to

Waterfront House and the work

should be completed before

Christmas.

“We will work with Black Cat

Cruises to enable people to have

access. If there are particular

items that require to be around

50m closer to the ferry terminal

than they can achieve via the

stairs, then we will accommodate

them through the port,’’ Mr

Davie said.

Black Cat Cruises chief executive

Paul Milligan said they had

been involved with discussions

about the issue with LPC and

ECan.

“An ideal site is to move us

down to the west end with the

new marina, which will be new

and there will be room for buses

to move around. But we’re not

going to get that in the near future

so we just need to make the

best of the facilities we currently

have.”

He said that was part of LPC’s

long term plan, but would take

time to come into fruition.

PROPOSAL: The area where a

new complex may be built.

Big plans for

Church Bay

•From page 1

“Seeing something that kind of

looks like a downtown shopping

mall is a bit of a shock and not

really what people appreciate.”

Plans for the development show,

once completed, it is intended the

operators of the On The Spot store

would become proprietors of the

supermarket.

Landscaping would include red

beech, pohutukawa and cabbage

trees. Timber fences would be

built along the boundaries to

reduce sound for next door

neighbours.

THE GOVERNORS Bay House

first time in 11 years.

Homes and gardens large and

small make up the 13 on show,

including several which have undergone

major post-earthquake

repairs.

The self-guided tour includes

recently restored St Cuthbert’s

Church – built between 1960-

62, it is one of the oldest stone

churches in the country.

It was designed by George

Mallinson, who was also the

architect of the Holy Trinity

Church in Lyttelton.

Waitahuna, the original Dyer

homestead in Governors Bay is

also part of the tour, along with

one of New Zealand’s finest formal

gardens, the internationally

significant Ohinetahi owned by

Sir Miles Warren.

Ohinetahi Homestead was

built in 1864 and has been

restored after suffering serious

damage in the September 4,

2010, earthquake.

One of the PTA organising

committee members, Felicity

Community board keeps Sumner pool afloat

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE SUMNER community

pool committee’s finances

will stay afloat after a

recommendation not to give

it funding for repairs was

dismissed.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

unanimously decided last

week to grant $4000 to the

Sumner Community Pool

Inc towards the cost of fixing

leaks.

Originally city council staff

said the application requesting

$6688 did not fit the criteria

for the board’s discretionary

response fund because it was

“capital works”.

Staff recommended

the board decline

the request. But at

the board’s meeting,

city councillor Yani

Johanson moved a

motion to grant money

from the fund anyway.

He said the $4000

grant was in line with

what the group received

last year.

“I am very supportive of the

Sumner pool as this has been a

tremendous community asset

Yani

Johanson

over a number of years run by

dedicated people in the local

area.”

The board also

requested staff advice

on the availability of

chemicals for the pool.

Work to fix leaks in

the 25m outdoor pool

would cost $6688. The

pool committee would

make up the shortfall.

Board member

Darrell Latham

seconded Cr Johanson’s

motion.

He said in spite of the

staff recommendation, the

board recognised it was

important for the work to be

done because the pool was

a “well run and widely used

community asset”.

“I’m thrilled with this

outcome as this is such a well

used community facility.”

Most of the running costs

for the community-owned

and managed pool come from

key rental, with about 360 keys

available for local families to

rent at $150 a season.

•The pool is due to open

for the summer season on

November 11 at 7am.

Diamond Harbour ferry wharf injury fears

•From page 1

Mr Milligan said they carried

about 2000 passengers a

week.

He said they wanted a floating

pontoon, like on the Lyttelton

side, but he understood

it wasn’t a quick fix.

“We just wanted to start the

conversations around it.”

The board asked city council

staff to look into whether any

maintenance could improve

safety and access.

City council neighbourhood

and sports parks operations

manager Al Hardy said Black

Cat had raised accessibility

concerns about the wharf.

“Council will respond to any

concerns about safety as they

arise.”

Mr Hardy said there was

$4.24 million budgeted in the

long term plan to replace the

wharf. But that was spread

between 2022-2025.

“If funds where bought

forward in the long term

plan, to replace the wharf, it

is highly likely other projects

would need to be pushed out;

this is a decision for council

to make during the LTP

process.”

He said any redesign would

include maximising safety and

ease of use.

The city council had also

received a complaint recently

about the slipperiness of the

dinghy ramp on the wharf,

which was inspected and

cleaned, Mr Hardy said.

Mr Milligan said their ideal

situation was for the wharf’s

replacement to be brought

forward.

Diamond Harbour

Community Association

chairman Richard Suggate

said some people who were

elderly, had young children

or were disabled, chose not to

take the ferry because of the

access issues. He welcomed the

city council looking into the

issue.

“It’s an important lifeline for

the community.”

Fun to be had at gala

SPRING HAS sprung, and

Heathcote Valley School is

gearing up for their annual

twilight gala.

It’s the main fundraising event

for the school and organiser Jina

Russell said she’d been planning

since June for a “brilliant”

usually attracted around 2500

people.

“I really love the atmosphere

of getting it ready and everyone

helping out. And just seeing

kids running around having fun

and families relaxing and being

able to catch up.”

This was her first year

running the event, which was

“scary, as the previous years

it has been an amazing lady

called Mel. I’ve got bit shoes to

fill.”

The Friday night timeslot

made for a “relaxed, after-work

environment for families,” Ms

Russell said. “It’s a great way to

end the week.”

The evening involves games

and activities to suit all ages, live

entertainment and music from

school and community groups,

stalls, food, raffles, chocolate

wheel and bake sale.

Local companies and services

“We have a fantastic array

of craft stalls this year. (People

even do some early Christmas

will raise $15,000 this year,

which would go towards school

Readers respond to the

article regarding a lobby

effort to get a dog park for

Ferrymead

Cherry Daly – Regarding the

proposed dedicated dog park at

Ferrymead. I agree that the eastern

suburbs are in dire need of a

dedicated dog park. This site is

central to the region and would

be absolutely perfect. Many

thanks to city councillor Yani Johanson

for making this proposal

and hoping that the notoriously

anti-dog city council will see

their way clear to approving this

as soon as possible.

Michael Wilson – This is a

brilliant idea. I live in the area

and frequently take my dogs to

this area for exercise. I’m sure

this will go some way to controlling

the rabbits and stopping the

dirt bike guys being annoying

early evening. Bravo to the person

who thought of this.

Gayel Marquet – That

sounds like a fabulous idea but

the reason dogs love the beach

is that owners do too. Give the

owners a major unique reason

and features (a pond to splash

in) to attract them to Ferrymead

and then educate them to be off

the beach and I’m all for it – and

I don’t even have a dog. Also

Frankie – I wish to support a

Jo Wilson – I was so happy

to read the article regarding a

proposal to turn the old Maori

Village site at Ferrymead into

a dog park. I have lived in Mt

Pleasant for a number of years

and have often thought that the

site would be perfect for a dog

park. I walk my dog around

there on a regular basis and

would definitely use it even

more if it were made more dog

friendly. The eastern and hill

Belinda Rooney – Yes, we

Anthea Wilson – Yes, I

already use it on occasion. Once

it is fully fenced and some of the

potholes filled it will be brilliant.

About a year and half ago I

it but never heard back. So it

is a yes from me.

Ann Newsom – I think its

great idea to have a dog park at

Ferrymead on the old Maori village

site. It would be an alternative

to the beach which if full of

dogs at summer week ends.

Jill Reesby – Excellent idea.

Sounds like all of the buildings

have already been removed and

it is now bare land, so this would

be an excellent idea as more and

more restrictions on free running

of dogs is implemented.

Jeffrey Gibson – It already

is a dog park on most weekends.

Nick Stoneman – No to

already.

Karen Beaumont – If is not

buildings there and turn it into

you can still make money off it.

Plenty of dog parks already, it’s

Jenny Bradley – Can’t help

thinking this will attract people

who may not like seeing my dog

walking around with a dead rabbit

in his jaws.

Pamela Dixon – I reckon we

have plenty of areas for our dogs

to play, how about a theme park?

Way more exciting.

Tess Lenihan – Best idea

ever. A lot of dog walkers go here

already. Plus it might eliminate

the mass rabbit population up

there.

Anita Beukenholdt – Great

idea but plant the boundary with

edible fruit trees so it has more

than one purpose.

Margaret Nicholas – Great.

We need lots more dog parks.

They bring people together and

are great for socialising. Make it

like the Styx Park.

Hazel Cain – About time our

animals had a great park with

plenty of different smells to find.

Lisa Peters – How fantastic

our dogs love it there. Nice and

safe. Great place on a warm day.

Boat safety week a timely reminder

Lyttelton-based

navigational safety officer

Gary Manch writes about

Safer Boating Week which

starts on Friday

AS I am writing, I can see the

odd pleasure boat out in the

harbour making the most of the

lovely day. It’s great to see people

out there using our amazing

coast for recreation.

With Labour weekend not far

away, the start of the boating

season is here, and hopefully

the weather will be kinder to us

this season than last. To coincide

with the start of the season,

Maritime New Zealand is running

its nationwide Safer Boating

Week from Friday to October 20.

I want to highlight the week for

two reasons.

National MP

Nuk Korako

writes about

his plans now

that he has

been returned

to Parliament

WITH THE final election

results now announced and my

place back in Parliament as the

National List MP based in the

Port Hills confirmed, it’s time

to look ahead to my priorities

for the next three years. I

will continue to maintain an

office here in the Port Hills

and be available to assist with

constituent cases and concerns.

But there are also some

specific issues where I think I

can make a difference in the

Port Hills, particularly within

the environmental area.

In my last column, I talked

about the set up of Te Tapuwae

o Rakau Trust, which is

now working on developing

a structured approach to

replanting the Port Hills. I

believe leading the set up of

this trust is one of the most

important contributions I

First, it’s a timely reminder

to get you thinking about your

preparation for the upcoming

boating season. That means

making sure your vessel has

been serviced, making sure all

the safety equipment is still in

good working order, and making

sure you have two forms of communication

ready to take out on

the water. It also means checking

that lifejackets are the right size

and, in the case of inflatable

ones, checking the cylinders are

working and manually blowing

the lifejacket up, and leaving it

overnight to check there are no

leaks.

Second, it’s a good time to

make sure you know the boating

rules for where you are going to

be. In Canterbury, for example,

you must have an identifying

have been able to make to our

electorate, and I look forward to

seeing the work the trust does

and assisting where I can.

Another area of real

environmental importance here

in the Port Hills electorate is

the Heathcote River and Ihutai

Estuary. This is something I

was involved with even before

becoming an MP, in my role as

chairman of Te Ihutai Trust.

One of the greatest

community initiatives we have

in our electorate is the annual

Mother of All Clean Ups, and

I’ve always enjoyed getting in

and helping to clean up the

of your boat. Check out our

rubbish which pollutes the

waterway and its banks.

It’s a privilege to live in close

proximity to such a beautiful

landmark as the Heathcote

River. But winding through

residential areas carries risks for

water quality. There are many

issues around silt, chemicals

and run-off from metal building

products ending up in the river.

These are issues that will require

ongoing attention from local

authorities and from central

Government. I am committed

to using my position to leave a

better and cleaner environment

here in the Port Hills.

We should make it as easy as

I do hope that the technology

develops soon so that people

will have confidence in online

voting.

The advance voting was

certainly popular this year and

is a step in the right direction of

making voting more accessible.

There are many issues that

need support and attention in

our electorate and I give you my

commitment that I will continue

to work hard for you, listen to

what locals are saying and get

things done for the benefit of our

communities.

We can face our challenges

together and get through difficult

There is still much to do before

we can truly say that we are on

the road to recovery.

But we know we can do it

Ferrymead Rotary grants

behind community projects

Ferrymead Rotary

Club member Barbara

Crooks writes about

neighbourhood inititives

which the club supports

ONE OF the few positive

outcomes of the February

22, 2011, earthquake, was the

reinforcement of the value

of neighbours. Several major

donors gave funds to Rotary

to help neighbourhoods come

together and to support local

community projects.

Further donations have

allowed Rotary’s neighbourhood

committee to continue to

support community activities

and projects at a local level.

These grants are channelled

through local Rotary clubs.

Ferrymead Rotary has been

involved in a dozen or so of

these. The club has two on the

go right now – the Mt Pleasant

Response and Resilience

team and the South Brighton

Residents’ Association.

Robin Arnold, who coordinates

Mt Pleasant Response

and Resilience, says the grant

will be used primarily to

assemble community emergency

supplies, which will be kept at

Mt Pleasant School.

IMPROVED: Rotary grants were used to fund native planting

on Rocking Horse Rd.

She has a group of local

volunteers working to set up a

core community response group

with relevant knowledge, or

access to it. This also involves

developing a basic emergency

plan and broadening the role of

neighbourhood support groups

beyond crime watch to include

emergency procedures.

In South Brighton, the

residents’ association is using its

grant for planting on Rocking

Horse Rd. It’s a two-year project

to plant natives in beds on

street corners down both sides

of the road and along the

central island. “The road had

become sad and neglected,” said

association vice-president Lynda

Burdekin, who is co-ordinating

the project.

“It’s such a nice place to live,

we want to make the road really

nice as well. “

at Speights Ferrymead at

5.45pm on Tuesdays. For

Ellesmere algal bloom

health warning lifted

THE ALGAL bloom health

warning on Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere has been lifted,

more than three years

after it was put in place.

Recent water testing

by the Canterbury

District Health Board

has shown the quantity

of potentially toxic bluegreen

algae (planktonic

cyanobacteria) in the lake

has decreased.

Concentrations are

now below the levels that were of

concern to public health.

The warning was issued in

February 2014.

Canterbury medical officer

of health Alistair Humphrey

Alistair

Humphrey

said Environment Canterbury’s

sampling of the lake would

continue on a monthly

basis.

“The public will be

informed when testing

shows that concentrations

have increased and there

is a risk to public health

again, which is likely to be

in the summer months,” he

said.

Exposure to algal bloom

can cause skin rashes,

nausea, stomach cramps,

tingling and numbness around

the mouth and fingertips.

When a warning is in place,

people should not touch the

water or drink it at any time.

First Crater Rim Ultra a unique marathon

• By Gordon Findlater

SOME OF the country’s top

long distance and trail runners

will tackle a picturesque yet

unforgiving 50km course from

Diamond Harbour to Hansen

Park on Sunday.

The inaugural Crater Rim

Ultra will be a unique event.

It will be one of the few ultramarathons

in the world were the

athletes are taken to the start

line not only by bus but also by

boat – cruising from Lyttelton to

Diamond Harbour.

The Crater Rim Ultra will

see competitors start at the

Diamond Harbour rugby

grounds at 7.15am and head to

the summit of Mt Herbert, 919m

above sea level.

They will then continue on a

track to the top of Gebbies Pass

and along the summit through

to the top of Briddle Path. They

will then loop back to the top of

Rapaki Track before descending

Rapaki to the finish line at

Hansen Park.

“We recognised that there’s so

much potential there because we

have the crater rim trail track

which is already there and it’s

such an iconic view to see all the

angles the whole way around,”

The championships, which

start on Friday, will be the first

national event of the 2017/18 surf

lifesaving season. The event at Sir

Owen G Glenn National Aquatic

Centre, Albany, has attracted

entries from 687 athletes – 70

more than last year.

A total of 31 New Zealand

clubs have entered, along with a

team of 19 representing Surf Life

Saving Australia and another 12

from Surf Life Saving New South

to call it the New Zealand trail

running championships.

“They are also going to use the

2018 event as a trial to assist with

the selection of the New Zealand

men’s and women’s team to

Wales. There will be about 400

races contested across age groups

from 10 years through to the

masters section.

Specific team events will

provide an opportunity for the

teams to go head-to-head in the

4x50m obstacle relay, 4x25m

manikin relay and 4x50 medley

relay.

“Unlike being out in the surf,

competitors can watch the action

more closely and clubs can

compete together and cheer

each other on in a stadium-like

environment,” said Surf Life Saving

New Zealand sport manager

Mike Lord.

“Many of our members spend

Happy Birthday to us.

House of Travel Ferrymead, One year

anniversary in our new store!

House of Travel Ferrymead are celebrating one year in their new premises at 987 Ferry Road. Owners Mel Hubber and Kim

Beswick are delighted to see many new tenants opening in the new business hub and love the variety and revitalisation it

is bringing to an already popular area and complementing existing businesses. House of Travel Ferrymead has technically

been operating for 27 years, originating as House of Travel Linwood on Buckleys Road where it specialised in Pilgrimage

tours and holiday packages before relocating to Ferry Road and rebranding as House of Travel Ferrymead.

The new business move has seen the team and customers alike embrace their new concept store which looks just like

your favourite coffee shop. Customers are greeted with offers of tea or coffee from the nespresso machine and can relax

and view inspirational material until their agent comes to sit with them with their mobile laptop. This new space creates

a relaxed and informal environment where conversations flow easily about the purpose of their travel plans. Kim & Mel

have both worked at House of Travel Ferrymead for a combined 18 years and believe their team is one of the most well

travelled in the business.

Mel Hubber

Owner Operator

“These days it’s about ensuring we

are with our clients on their journey

every step of the way – from the

initial searching out options phase, to

the anticipation phase, then the actual

travelling phase, and then returning home with

feedback and booking the next one phase!”

Kim Beswick

Owner Operator

“We believe strong relationships with clients

and suppliers are key to success in the travel

industry and believe each of the team have a

strong work ethic and values that compliment the

House of Travel philosophy of enriching people’s

lives through travel’. ‘ In fact many clients make the

comment that it feels like one big family in our office!’”

Their core business is still holidays to the Pacific Islands and Australia, North America &

UK/Europe, Ocean and River Cruising (top shop for Avalon waterways 2015 and 2016) as

well as specialized tailor made independent travel and guided holidays, African safari

adventures and everything in between. Church and group travel remain a key focus

and so does searching out the best value Premium Economy and Business class

fares and how to take advantage of lounge access and airline memberships. We

welcome new and existing clients to our new store for a coffee any time!

94% of customers who book with

House of Travel Ferrymead rate us 5/5

“Knowledgeable with excellent communication. Made everything

easy and provided all the relevant documentation for travel all

at a competitive price.” - 19/8/17

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Love your dentures

Is it time to swap your generic denture appearance

for a beautiful, natural looking smile?

Internationally renowned dental

technician Richard Greenlees,

PGDipCDTech (University of Otago) of

Lovebite is the person to call.

His special point of difference is

rebuilding what he calls the Oral

Architecture, the structure and shape of

a patient’s face that is often lost following

years of wearing dentures.

Lovebite dentures address problems

that can arise due to years of the patient

wearing incorrectly fitting or poorly

functioning dentures, such as poor

occlusion (the way the teeth come

together), aesthetics, function and

hygiene.

An intricate knowledge and

understanding of facial features allows

Richard to return facial tissues back to the

correct position, reform lips, and restore

beauty and confidence.

Richard provides a friendly, discreet

service and personally guides his patients

through the transformation process to

create teeth with small nuances in the

fabrication, colour and shape.

Carmen, a recent patient said in a

thank you letter to Richard, “I highly

recommend your craftsmanship to anyone

wanting a natural looking smile. Because

you do your work in front of your client,

one is able to see how meticulous and

dedicated you are to ending up with a top

class result. My dentures are amazing.

They look like one’s own natural teeth. So

much time, effort and energy went into

the end result. Simply the best.”

Richard’s patients have varying needs,

from full denture replacement, to first

time immediate dentures, implant

supported dentures and metal partial

dentures.

Since he started making teeth in

1980 Richard has travelled extensively,

accumulating vast knowledge through

training and working in Japan, and

running his own practice in the

prestigious Harley Street, London for 15

years. He continues to teach his world

leading techniques globally.

Richard also creates porcelain crowns

and veneers, working with like-minded

dental professionals.

A beautiful new Lovebite smile

resembles nature and reflects the patient’s

character. It boosts confidence and helps

patients to look and feel years younger.

To learn more and to view a gallery

of stunning Lovebite dentures, visit

lovebite.com.

BEFORE

AFTER

These before and after photographs

perfectly highlight the facial

rejuvenation that can be achieved

with a Lovebite denture (right).

The patient’s facial structure and

shape have been restored, with her

beautiful new smile transforming

the way she looks and feels.

True

Who thought

DENTURES

could look this

• First-time immediate dentures • Implant supported dentures

STUNNING: A beautiful new denture for

a young female patient

These stunning lovebite full upper and

lower dentures have been expertly crafted by

internationally-recognised dental technician

Richard Greenlees at his Christchurch studio.

The combination of Richard’s skill, experience

(including 15 years in London’s prestigious

Harley Street) knowledge and revolutionary

techniques allow him to create beautiful

bespoke false teeth that truly resemble those

in nature and reflect each patient’s individuality

and unique character.

LUTHER AND LLOYD:

TWO OUTRAGEOUS HERETICS?

SIX-WEEK COURSE

This year marks the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther

nailing his thesis to the church in his German town of

Wittenberg (October 31). An action that unexpectedly

sparked the Reformation. This year also celebrates the

50th Anniversary of the heresy trial of Lloyd Geering

here in Aotearoa New Zealand. An event that was most

divisive for many of our churches.

This course will examine the huge impact of the two

men in their time, noting their significance for today.

Attention will be drawn to the different theological

perspectives involved.

Six-week course of 2 hour sessions

held on Thursday afternoons 2pm - 4pm

commencing on 19 October 2017

The course will be co-facilitated by Charles Manning and

Reverend Rodney Routledge. The course will draw on the

latest scholarship and will be interactive in format.

VENUE: Iona House, Aranui

Enrolments by 15 October by email to

stgmin@gmail.com or 3812536
