Worry over firefighting capacity

• By Sarla Donovan

FIREFIGHTERS and residents

are worried the Little River Fire

Brigade won’t have enough water

to fight blazes this summer.

The brigade’s modern fire tanker

was replaced with a smaller,

30-year-old vehicle when Fire

and Emergency New Zealand

replaced the New Zealand Fire

Service on July 1 this year.

“Some city council assets were

taken from (rural) stations so

that Christchurch would retain

its best assets,” said Little River

Fire Brigade chief fire officer

David Irving.

Little River’s “practically new”

water tanker was replaced with a

30-year-old one which is slower

and carries less water.

“We take the vehicle as our

water supply but we now have decreased

capacity – 1500 litres less –

and we can’t get it there in a timely

fashion . . . I don’t know if it’s the

gearbox ratios or the engine, or its

weight, but the combination of all

of those – it’s not an emergency

tanker, it’s a tanker.”

COMMUNITY concern over

a shopping and entertainment

complex in Church Bay has

forced a rethink on how it will

look.

Spence Developments wants

to build a supermarket and

111-space car park, four shops, a

cafe and a 30-seat cinema at 139-

143 Marine Drive, behind the On

the Spot store.

The Church Bay

Neighbourhood Association

has expressed misgivings

about whether the building

would fit in to the semi-rural

environment.

Corrugated iron, timber

or stone were suggested as

alternatives to the proposed

tilt-slab construction

materials.

Association secretary Pat

Pritchett said they had been in

touch with Spence Developments

to give their feedback.

She was pleased at the designs

would now be revisited.

“I hope they’re looking at not

using tilt slab as part of that. It’s

good to know they’ve listened to

the community and I hope they

continue to do so,” she said.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

LITTLE RIVER locals have

every reason to be worried about

their ability to fight blazes this

summer (see page 1).

So they are doing everything

in their power to get a tanker

which can hold more water.

The Little River brigade covers

a big catchment and it needs the

equipment to do the job.

The city council has taken a

modern tanker from the Little

River brigade, saying it is needed

elsewhere – Christchurch.

The city council must have a

short memory – there have been

big fires in Little River over the

last couple of years, and didn’t

we have a major one on the Port

Hills several months ago?

So all power to those in little

River as they battle for a better

tanker.

Also on page 1, an update on

the Church Bay development.

Call for Beachville Rd clean-up

• By Sarla Donovan

THE BEACHVILLE Rd

esplanade is an unsightly mess,

residents say and they want it

cleaned up.

Redcliffs Residents Association

secretary Pat McIntosh

wrote to city council infrastructure

rebuild liaison manager

Ross Herrett on October 13

about “unsightly” landscaping

next to the new $4.6 million

seawall.

It follows an earlier email

from the city council in June,

when Mr Herrett said the landscaping

work would be rectified

by SCIRT in early spring.

But the area remains overgrown

and weed-ridden.

“There is no sign of even

routine maintenance being undertaken,”

Dr McIntosh said.

“What used to be a pleasant

grassed area used for picnics

and play is currently shin-high

in weeds with bare patches in

between and is quite useless and

very unsightly.”

Picnic tables removed from

the area during the seawall construction

were damaged beyond

repair, Dr McIntosh said, and

when she asked the city council

for replacements, was told it

was up to the Coastal Pathway

Group. However, that group was

short of money for landscaping

and had other priorities, she

said.

“It seems to be being batted

back and forth.”

Group chairman Scott

Babington said they planned to

meet with the RRA next week

and it would be “one of the topics

of discussion.”

A city council spokeswoman

told the Bay Harbour News “arrangements

are under way for

repairs. Staff have been talking

She said it was “disappointing”

WHARF STRUCTURES TO GO

Structures encroaching on public

land along the Akaroa Wharf

are to be removed. The Banks

Peninsula Community Board

decided on Monday that all

structures which can practically

be removed should be taken

down. City council staff will now

speak to Black Cat Cruises, which

owns the structures, and report

back to the board on November

13 with a time frame for removal.

MUSEUM LAND TRANSFER

Land at 33-35 London St is

expected to be gifted to the

Lyttelton Historical Museum

Society tomorrow. Last month a

hearing panel recommended the

land be transferred to the society

and the city council is expected

to adopt the recommendation

at its meeting on Thursday. The

museum has been without a home

since its Gladstone Quay premises

were made uninhabitable after the

2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

BOAT WASH RECONNECTION

The boat wash adjacent to

the Akaroa Boat Compound

should be reconnected now that

Akaroa’s water quantity has been

improved, say the Banks Peninsula

Community Board. It has asked

the city council to reinstate it and

is waiting to hear back on when

this is likely to happen.

New wastewater system

plan for Diamond Harbour

A NEW pressure wastewater

system may be installed in

Whero Ave and Marine Drive,

Diamond Harbour.

The gravity wastewater

network in the area was badly

damaged in the September 4,

2010, and February 22, 2011,

earthquakes, and through root

intrusion into the joints.

The situation has caused

blockages and overflows on to

private property.

And in some areas houses

have been constructed over the

wastewater pipes, meaning they

cannot be accessed for repair.

The city council is proposing

to install a pressure wastewater

system like the one recently

installed in Charteris Bay.

The individual tank and

pump system is located in

an underground tank which

transfers wastewater, under

pressure, from individual

properties to the city council’s

pipes in the street.

It is connected to an alarm

panel attached to the outside of

each property, which alerts city

council staff if there is a problem

with the tank.

The only parts of the system

that would be visible are the lid of

the tank and the alarm panel.

Feedback is being sought on

the proposal until November

13. To make a submission, visit

www.ccc.govt/haveyoursay

The city council will also hold

a street meeting on Tuesday,

November 7 at 5.15pm in the

Whero Ave cul-de-sac.

U-turn on ferry terminal bus stop plan

• By Sarla Donovan

THE DIAMOND Harbour

ferry terminal will retain two

bus stops after a U-turn from

the Lyttelton Port Company.

But it’s not budging on a decision

not to provide a dedicated

pick-up/drop-off zone.

The LPC has

been under

pressure from

community

groups over

a move to

reduce bus

parking spaces

Peter Davie

from three to

one and not

provide a public drop-off zone,

as part of its staff car park development

on Jetty 2.

LPC chief executive Peter

Davie said yesterday he had

“listened to the concerns

expressed by the Diamond

Harbour Community

Association and the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

about the negative impact

reducing the bus service to one

stop would have on people using

the ferry. We have decided to

retain two bus stops so there is

no change to the 28 bus service,

while the 535 will pick up and

drop off people wanting to catch

the ferry from Norwich Quay.”

While they wouldn’t provide a

dedicated pick-up/drop-off zone

for private vehicles, LPC would

“facilitate access” for people

to drop off goods, had young

children or who were physically

impaired, Mr Davie said.

“Regular users . . . can apply

for a permit to enable them to

be dropped off and picked up

close to the ferry. People who

are not regular users, but need

close access to the ferry, can

phone LPC security 24 hours

a day, seven days a week to

arrange entry. As a secondary

option people can contact Black

Cat Cruises to facilitate access.”

Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman Christine

Wilson said the board was “delighted

that LPC has revisited its

plans.”

Stairs onto the Oxford St overbridge

are being re-installed,

reducing the walking distance

to the ferry.

“The community has been

asking us to re-install these

stairs and we are pleased to

deliver this. We will undertake

this work while we construct

our staff car park for Waterfront

House, LPC’s new operations

and administration building.

All work is scheduled to be

completed before Christmas,

with LPC’s administration and

management teams relocating

from Woolston.

Akaroa toilets

‘disgraceful’

TOILETS AT the Akaroa

Recreation Ground have been

labelled a “disgrace.”

Akaroa resident Laurice Bradford

has written to the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

denouncing the current state of

the toilets.

“The pipe is leaking on the sink

in the ladies so the floor is always

wet and the doors don’t lock that

well in the ladies and the disabled

toilet. There is also no soap or

paper towels.”

Ms Bradford said the toilets

were used by “a lot of travellers,

and locals, and should be in better

condition.

“Freedom campers are washing

dishes in the sinks, which is a

health and safety issue.”

She wants the city council to

provide a tap, sink and bench on

the outside of the building for

campers to wash their dishes.

Community board chairwoman

Christine Wilson said the board

had discussed the issue at their

meeting on Monday.

“We didn’t think a sink was a

good idea. We want to encourage

campers in need of facilities to go

a campground.”

However, the board has asked

city council staff to look at fixing

the problems and improving the

maintenance of the toilet block.

My Mother’s Kitchen

New Zealand's best chefs, bakers and foodies

share their mothers' special recipes

For most of us, the memory of the food that our mothers served us as children

never leaves us, a comforting reminder of the maternal bond that resonates

through our adult lives. It is these memories, so often treasured, that are the

inspiration for My Mother’s Kitchen.

In this book an extremely impressive line-up of over 70 New Zealand chefs,

cooks, bakers, writers and foodies share the stories and recipes from their

own mother’s kitchen, the food that they remember and which triggers all

the best memories of early family life. The contributors are many and varied

and include international chef Peter Gordon; Ben Bayly of The Grove; Peta

Mathias; Bevan Smith from Riverstone Kitchen; Karena and Kasey Bird; Fleur

Sullivan from Fleur’s Place in Moeraki; Giulio Sturla from Roots in Lyttleton;

100 Great New Zealand Wineries

By douglas renall

100 Great New Zealand Wineries features many of the best

vineyards in the country. All New Zealand’s main wine-making

regions are described, with wineries chosen not only for the

quality of the wine produced, but also for their history, cellar-door

atmosphere, awards won and the impact the winery has had

at home and abroad. Author Douglas Renall has walked the

vineyards, searched the cellars and talked with winemakers

and vineyard managers to gather fascinating insights about the

viticulture methods employed, the oenology practices used and

with the people who work long days in the vineyard and equally

long nights in the cellar. Often visiting wineries several times, and

always with his camera, he has also captured the beauty and

seasonal differences of vineyards around the country.

Exhausted to Energized

Dr Libby’s Guide to Living Your Life with More Energy

By Libby Weaver

It’s easy to pass off feeling tired and put it down to a multitude of

things in our life - your job, your children, your relationships, but

there is an enormous array of factors that might be draining you

of energy - and often without you even realising it. For example,

just sitting for more than an hour produces biochemical reactions

in the body that make you feel more lethargic. Also, having open

loops churning over in your mind impacts your body in a similar

way to having too many apps open on your phone, flattening its

battery and draining you of energy.

From teenagers through to adults, find out where your energy goes

and how you can reclaim the vitality you once had. Empowered

with the information in this book, learn simple but powerful

strategies to help liberate yourself from exhaustion and live a life

with more energy.

FENZ Christchurch metro

area commander Dave

Stackhouse has put forward a

case for Little River to get a new

or upgraded vehicle “as soon as

possible,” Mr Irving said.

There have been several

serious fires in Little River over

the past couple of years and Mr

Irving said coming into the dry

season it was a real concern they

didn’t have the right equipment

to fight fires.

The Little River brigade covers

a 60km radius from Seabridge

Rd near Motukarara to the

Hilltop Tavern above Akaroa.

“(The case has) gone to

Wellington Fleet Management,”

said Mr Irving. “Unfortunately

it’s been nearly three months

now and there’s been no result.”

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board has now

raised the issue with FENZ.

Board member Tori Peden

said they were expecting a

briefing from them on the

situation in December.

Mrs Peden said both the

brigade and local residents

were worried about the limited

transportable water, especially

with the weather starting to heat

up.

Birdlings Flat resident Barb

Gaeth said it was a real concern

for the Birdlings Flat area, which

has a limited water supply.

She said she’d heard the truck

“can’t get over the hill when it’s

full of water, which is freaky.

safety to be

NEW TACTILE pavers designed

to improve pedestrian safety in

Akaroa will be white, except at

Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman Christine

Wilson said it was a difficult

decision for the board, which

had tried to find a compromise

between community concerns

over retaining heritage values in

the township, and maximising

pedestrian safety.

City council staff had

recommended the yellow

pavers as having higher safety

values. The Blind Foundation

also advocates using yellow –

for those with low vision yellow

is recognised as a warning

colour.

However, heritage advocates

argued the yellow tactile pavers

would affect the look of the

Akaroa historic area and pushed

for white to be used.

Rue Jolie will have yellow ones

because its proximity to a zebra

crossing meant white pavers could

be confused with a bar of the

crossing.

• By Sarla Donovan

RUTH DYSON turned 60 in

August, but the political veteran

shows no sign of slowing down.

Three days a week she’s in Wellington,

and though her stepson

lives there and a stepdaughter up

the coast in Paekakariki, there’s

not much opportunity to see

them or her five grandchildren –

work doesn’t finish until 10pm.

She says the time away from

her Moncks Bay home is good

for her and Martin, her “very

tolerant” husband of 32 years.

Their house was rebuilt after

the February 22, 2011, earthquake

and Martin looks after the

vegetable gardens, chooks and

beehive while she’s away.

September’s election saw Ms

Dyson increase her majority by

more than 5000 votes in the Port

Hills electorate she’s held for four

terms.

And this time around, she’s

back in the corridors of power

for the first time in nearly a decade,

this time as the Government

chief whip.

Like Labour leader and now

Prime Minister Jacinda Arden,

Ms Dyson’s interest in politics

came as a teenager, though she

wasn’t from a political family.

Catholic educated, she describes

herself as an “army brat” who

lived in different military camps

around the country. She had

to persuade her parents to vote

Labour. “I won,” she says with a

wry smile. “I’m sure they were

National voters before me.”

Growing up, she never lacked

ambition.

“When I first started school,

I remember I was at a Catholic

primary school and the teacher

said: ‘What do you want to be

when you grow up?’ And I said a

rock star or the pope. And to her

credit, she never told me that I

couldn’t be the pope.”

The appeal of politics was

idealistic.

“I wanted to change the world.

Make it a better place. I was

involved in anti-mining, antiapartheid,

the peace movement,

women’s movement – it was the

70s, you had to be. But I didn’t

get involved in party politics

until I lived on the West Coast in

the 80s.”

In the end, it was a toss-up

between Labour and Values

(which later became the

Green Party) but with no

other Values person on the

coast, she ended up joining the

Labour Party in 1979.

After working as a campaign

organiser for Labour MP

Kerry Burke in the 1981 and

1984 elections, a shift north to

Wellington followed, helping

Fran Wilde with the Homosexual

Law Reform Bill.

Then, at the 1988 Labour Party

conference at the Dunedin Town

Hall, she defeated Jim Anderton

to win the position of party

president at the youthful age

of 31 – a position she held for

the next five years before being

elected to Parliament in 1993 in

the Lyttelton electorate which

later became Banks Peninsula

and then Port Hills.

She’s now been there for 24

years, one of the longest-serving

current MPs, and has held her

electorate seat in all but one election

(losing to National’s David

Carter in 1996.)

Being back in Government

Below –

the Labour

Party

Conference at

the Dunedin

Town Hall in

1988, when

she was

elected party

president.

after nine years on opposition

benches is a “huge opportunity”

she says.

“Listening to Jacinda on the

radio this morning makes me

think we’re probably going to be

working non-stop for the next

three years, because there’s such

a big list of things to do.”

Ms Dyson concedes she wasn’t

anticipating a return to Government

three months ago.

“If you had asked me then . . . I

would have said we’d be spending

another term in opposition,

watching more destruction.”

It’s 18 years since Helen Clark’s

Labour Government prised National

out of office and the issues

facing the new coalition are “not

dissimilar,” Ms Dyson says.

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

She identifies housing as something

that’s “a lot worse” now

than in 1999.

“But remember, we’d had a

period of state house sell-offs

coming in to office in 99. And

Auckland . . . had sold off all their

council housing properties. So

there was huge pressure for social

housing then, (but) it’s substantially

worse now.”

“I also think, especially here in

Christchurch, mental health is

in a much worse state. We’d had

quite a period of stability, probably

from when Jenny Shipley

took over from Jim Bolger (in

1997).

“Shipley and Helen Clark

were on the same page in terms

of mental health and were

both pretty determined to depoliticise

it. It was often called the

‘Cinderella’ of the health system

– always the last thing to get done

– so I think in 1999 mental health

was in better shape, though the

health system overall wasn’t. But

now, the health system is really

under resourced and for me,

mental health is the really big

issue.”

Also not new is the way women

politicians get treated. She

reckons they still get judged differently

to men.

“The New Zealand Herald

headline that had Jacinda putting

a ‘curse’ on the All Blacks

– would you have done that

to Bill English? Maybe, but I

don’t think so. She’s a woman

and she’s young. That shouldn’t

make a difference, we should be

really proud of that but it’s seen

as a negative thing by quite a few

people.”

Having said that, “any woman

that goes into public office helps

the next generation do it. Fran

Wilde and Annette King are

two of the women that really

encouraged me to get involved

in politics and they still do,

they’re still two of my closest

friends. Margaret Wilson, Helen

Clark.”

“When I first went into Parliament

I wouldn’t have been called

a political operator, it was more

‘where’s the bathroom, where’s

my office’ . . . but I’ve always

been interested in how decisions

are made and how to influence

things, what really makes a difference.

“I’ve learned a lot about the

political process and how best

to influence change. I had five

years as president of the party

so before I went into Parliament

I thought I knew how the place

ran, but I didn’t have a clue.

You don’t know until you get in

there.”

“What keeps me there? I can

get things done, I can change

things for the better. That’s what

keeps me there.”

So does Ruth Dyson ever forget

that she’s an MP?

“At this time of the political

cycle, no . . . we’ve just been

away for the long weekend and –

I should have worn a balaclava. I

had people coming up to me

in a restaurant on Stewart

Island saying ‘what’s going to

happen?’”

FAST FACTS:

•Cabinet minister for

eight years under Helen

Clark, with portfolios including

ACC, Senior Citizens,

Associate Health,

Disability and Social

Development.

•Elected the 28th Labour

Party president at 31,

succeeded in 1993 by

Maryan Street.

•In her maiden speech

to Parliament in 1994,

she spoke of living in an

abusive relationship.

•In 2015, she was referred

to Parliament’s

privileges committee for

calling speaker of the

house David Carter “incompetent,”

“sexist” and

“biased” on twitter.

•She introduced and

passed the law that

alongside English and Te

Reo.

HALLELUJAH: Sue Stewart gives the pavement repairs the

thumbs up.

Problem pavers

finally fixed

• By Sarla Donovan

HOW LONG does it take to fix

a bumpy footpath?

Turns out, quite some time.

But here’s the abbreviated

version: In May this year, Sue

Stewart (right) tripped

on uneven pavers

along the Akaroa

waterfront, grazing

her face.

Not one to take such

things lying down, she

decided to go out with

some spray paint and

mark the area to help

prevent others from

falling and injuring themselves.

That’s when Banks Peninsula

city councillor and Deputy

Mayor Andrew Turner got

involved. He visited the site and

assured Ms Stewart the city

council was taking the matter

“very seriously”.

The problem pavers would be

fixed by the end of June, he told

Ms Stewart.

Fast forward three months to

September and the pavers were

removed, but still not replaced.

Cones and barriers

surrounded the area.

Cr Turner said it wasn’t a

simple matter of just replacing

the pavers. Apparently,

specialist contractors were

needed to replace the pavers

with a gravel, resin-based

material, which would provide

a safe surface around the trees

and keep them healthy.

But poor weather and rain

meant the contractor

had a backlog. Then last

month, Ms Stewart again

contacted Bay Harbour

News.

“The barriers are

still here,” she said.

“Nothing’s happened for

months.”

On October 25, Bay

Harbour News asked Cr

Turner when the repairs would

be finished?

On October 27, almost five

months to the day since the saga

started, Cr Turner responded: “I

have been advised that the final

part of the work is being done,

and will be completed, today. I

have asked a further question

on the reason for the delay, and

can provide this information as

soon as I have an answer from

the staff responsible for the

project.”

Ms Stewart is understandably

pleased.

She’s contemplating writing a

poem about the whole affair.

Clarifying issues surrounding development in port

Peter

Davie, chief

executive,

Lyttelton

Port of

Christchurch,

responds to

the Soap Box

article in the Bay Harbour

News from Felix Dawson,

Diamond Harbour Resident

and Banks Peninsula

Community Board Mt

Herbert representative

Felix Dawson confused several

issues pertaining to Lyttelton

Port in his October 4 Soapbox

article. It is important that the

right information is provided so

people know the facts.

Upgrade of Diamond

Harbour Ferry Terminal

We are upgrading the existing

Diamond Harbour Ferry Terminal

amenities. We’re doing this

at the same time as constructing

a staff car park adjacent to

Waterfront House, LPC’s new

operations and administration

building.

For some time the community

has asked if we could re-install

stairs off the Oxford St overbridge

to provide direct access

to the ferry. This will reduce the

walking distance to the ferry

and is included in the terminal

upgrade.

We are working closely with

Environment Canterbury to

maintain the existing bus service

and we will retain the dual bus

stops.

This will ensure there is no

change for people using the 28

bus service to access the Diamond

Harbour Ferry. There has

never been a dedicated drop-off/

pick-up area at the wharf, and

currently, people cannot drive

directly to the ferry.

However we are happy to

provide access for people who

are impaired, elderly, have young

children or are dropping off

goods. We will be communicating

this to Diamond Harbour

Ferry users and the wider community.

Reclamation of land

LPC has applied for resource

consent to extend the reclamation

in Te Awaparahi Bay to

34ha. Ten hectares has already

been reclaimed as part of the

Lyttelton Port Recovery Plan,

following the 2010/2011 earthquakes.

The port requires the 34ha

reclamation to provide the

space needed to meet the South

Island’s fast growing freight

requirements. LPC has always

communicated that, while the

port does not need all 34ha immediately,

it will within the next

10 to 15 years, and is obtaining

the consents now to allow the

extension of the reclamation

without any future disruption.

LPC has always said that the logs

in front of Norwich Quay will be

relocated to either Cashin Quay

or the reclaimed area.

For locals, the expansion of

the reclamation is particularly

beneficial. Moving Port operations

east, away from Lyttelton’s

residential area, will also free up

the inner harbour for increased

community access.

Cruise ship berth and

channel deepening consent

Obtaining the channel deepening

resource consent is a critical

component of the international

cruise ship berth construction

and this was communicated at

the consent hearing.

While the existing channel

has sufficient depth to allow

cruise vessels to reach the port,

dredging is required around the

new wharf to allow the ships to

actually dock at the proposed

cruise berth.

We are preparing to mediate

with both parties who appealed

our consent on their concerns

and consequently, at this point,

we are unable to provide a time

line of when the cruise berth will

be completed. We are as disappointed

as many are about this

delay, particularly as the hearing

panel decided “by a considerable

margin” that our consent be

granted.

LPC actively does its best to

ensure that any impact our operations

have on the community

and environment is minimised. I

encourage anyone with concerns

to contact us.

to bridge club

SUMNER BRIDGE Club has

a brand new garden out front

thanks to a local landscape

designer.

Erik Ellis said the club had approached

him to come up with a

new design as the old garden had

become overgrown and messy.

The Dryden St cottage now

features box hedging planted in a

pattern to show an ace of spades

– the highest card in bridge – and

the letters SBC. Club secretary

Ally Mathias said the club was

“extremely grateful” for Dr Ellis’

generosity. “He gave his landscaping

design and planting expertise,

at no charge,” she said.

Dr Ellis said he hoped that with

the garden’s strong structure and

regular maintenance, it would

look good for years to come. Box

hedging plants can last up to 100

years and handle both dry and

wet conditions, Dr Ellis said.

The freshly planted plots had attracted

great interest at the club’s

recent spring tournament, with

members and visitors showing

appreciation for the design, Ms

Mathias said.

Sumner Bridge Club was

started in 1968 and will celebrate

its 50th anniversary in September

next year.

WET WEATHER and a lack of

maintenance are combining to

make Cass Bay walking tracks a

potential danger.

The Cass Bay reserves

management committee

is concerned about poor

maintenance on the Head to

Head walkway between Corsair

and Cass Bay and Cass Bay to

Pony Point.

It said the tracks are well used

by locals and visitors but heavy

use and poor management are

causing slips in winter and in

summer long grass is obscuring

the tracks.

Drains have been put in place

but the majority are not correctly

positioned or clogged, secretary

Helen Braithwaite said in

a letter to the Banks Peninsula

Community Board.

“As a result, in wet weather,

the storm water runs down and

under the paths and erodes

them.”

“Over the last 18 years, we

Walking tracks a safety concern

Fire rages, homes at risk

have had meetings with council

staff, looking at solutions to this

problem. However, there has

been little action, and with each

change of council staff, discussions

start from the beginning

The committee said the Pony

Point track is under the care

of the Regional Parks team,

however, the Corsair to Cass Bay

section is with the Urban Parks

team, which “seems to have no

funding for ongoing maintenance

of the track.”

They’ve written to the board

asking that the Regional Parks

team take responsibility for all

of the tracks.

“It would also be useful to

have a counter on the Corsair

Bay to Cass Bay track, to measure

the number of people using

the track in order to justify the

maintenance load.”

The board has asked city

council staff for advice on

whether this would be possible.

tribute to his

supporters in

Last weekend

I enjoyed an

afternoon at my

home with our campaign team

to say a huge thank you for their

support and hard work.

Members and supporters

are truly the backbone of our

National Party and Port Hills

electorate, and I thank you for

your support and involvement.

We ran a strong Port Hills

campaign and were delighted to

have won the party vote, which

contributed to National’s overall

success.

It was a difficult week for me

and I know the same for many

when the devastating news was

presented that National will not

be returned to Government, in

the vote. However, this is the nature

of MMP and we accept the

decision and move forward.

I congratulate the new prime

minister and am also pleased to

see the hard working Eugenie

Sage as minister of conservation

and Ruth Dyson as Labour Party

chief whip.

With 56 National MPs, the

strongest opposition in Parliamentary

Our outgoing prime minister,

Bill English, has been a remarkable

finance minister and prime

minister. I am incredibly proud

to continue serving under his

leadership

As we begin our journey in

with the privilege of working

hard for you and all those in the

Ferrymead

Rotary’s work to

support elderly

people in the

community

IT’S HARD to imagine going

into the centre of Christchurch

for the first time in 10 years.

But that was the experience

for one of the nine Sumner and

Redcliffs senior citizens which

Ferrymead Rotary took into the

central city. Although they all

live alone and some still drive,

most hadn’t been into the city

for a long time.

They were collected by two

Rotary members in a van lent

to the club by the Kowhai Rest

Home. Their first stop – the

Botanic Gardens. They were

given a guided tour around

the gardens in the ‘Caterpillar’,

complete with a driver

commentary about the plants

and their origins, and stops for

closer inspection at the begonia

and cacti houses. Several hadn’t

been on the ‘Caterpillar’ before

and some had never been to the

Botanic Gardens.

After a Rotary-shouted lunch

in a city cafe, they cruised

around the changing scene

of the central city rebuild.

They took in sights such as the

Margaret Mahy playground, the

Piano Centre, the Isaac Theatre

Royal and the Transitional

Cathedral.

So much had changed since

they had last been to town 10

years ago. As you might expect,

they were astounded by what she

saw. One woman said: “I might

now even be able to find my way

around the city again.”

The group was most appreciative

of the outing. One wrote

to Ferrymead Rotary, saying it

was “especially fun and a real

learning experience to be taken

around the Botanic Gardens

Feedback like this has encouraged

Ferrymead Rotary to make

the outing an annual project.

This was the first time since

the February 22, 2011, earthquakes

that the club has provided

age group. Back then when the

the club transported numerous

From Taylors Mistake to the Atlantic

Isaac Giesen

plans to row

4700km

for suicide

prevention

• By Andrew Alderson

ATLANTIC ROWER Isaac

Giesen grew up in Merivale but

spent his summers at the Taylors

Mistake Surf Life Saving Club

from the age of nine.

While he longer lives in

Christchurch, the born-and-bred

Cantabrian still rates Taylors

Mistake as the “best damn club

in the whole damn land”.

All going to plan, over

Christmas the 25-year-old

will be manning the oars of

his rowing vessel somewhere

between the Canary Islands and

Antigua on a 4700km journey

across the Atlantic Ocean to

raise awareness and funds for

suicide prevention.

Giesen leaves on December 12

and hopes to complete the crossing

in 60 days. He expects to

drop 20-30kg from a 110kg race

weight, but a mop of hair and

free-range beard that has seen

him called “Jesus” will stay.

On Chritmas Day, Giesen will

sling his rod overboard, hoping

to reel in a catch he can fillet on

a chopping board built into the

port side gunwale of his vessel,

Bonnie Lass.

The plan is to enjoy sashimi,

even if he’s stuck in one of the

trade winds route’s infamous

hurricanes.

Lemon could be added as a

marinade or, depending on how

cavalier he feels, he might knock

up a soup with tom yum paste,

coconut powder and desalinated

water.

Whatever ends up on Giesen’s

menu, it is for a cause close to his

heart.

He lost an aunt and two mates

to suicide in recent years. The

objective is to complete the

Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge

to raise $1 million in the

name of mental health for the

Bravehearts, Black Dog Institute

and Victim Support charities. A

sum of $13,862 has been secured

so far under a campaign branded

The Blue Rower.

Giesen knows eating on the

voyage is less about Michelinstar

meals and more about

chowing down enough energy

for his stints on the oars.

He cites the case of veteran

long-distance rower Leven

Brown – who’s his mentor –

being forced to open a bag of

potato chips by sitting on them

after battling to the point of exhaustion

through a hurricane.

“Because I’m going solo, I can

row or sleep as much as I want,”

Giesen says. “But I might break

the day into six four-hour slots of

three hours on, one hour off. So

I’ll need to eat so much food for

fuel, then work out a sleep and

rowing pattern around it.”

Why go to such extremes?

“The answer is ‘why not’?” he

says. “I don’t have an answer to

why my aunty and two mates

did that. In fact, it’ll always be a

demon question in the back of

my mind, so while I’m still living

and breathing, why not live life

to the full.”

Giesen said he has never officially

suffered depression, but

that should not stop Kiwis talking

about it.

“I went through one spell

where I’d wake up unhappy. I

kept telling myself ‘tomorrow

will be better’,” he said.

“If I ever did have depression,

the best way for me to deal with

it would be through exercise, to

control those inner thoughts.

“I needed to break the silence.

I don’t want to be that New Zealand

man who won’t talk about

his feelings.”

Giesen believes the next generation

can change the way New

Zealanders think about mental

health.

“Some New Zealanders are

still stuck in backward ways.

Hopefully younger people can be

open and talk about it like John

Kirwan as an All Black. But who

among the new generation will

know him if they don’t follow

rugby?”

Giesen was once a surf

lifesaver at Taylors Mistake,

but never rowed competitively.

He has been subjecting himself

to three-hour rows on the

ergometer to build his base

fitness.

JOURNEY:

Isaac Giesen

will attempt to

row 4700km

across the

Atlantic

to raise

awareness

and money

for suicide

prevention.

Brown told him his erg scores,

with an average 2m 19s, split

for each 500m, mean his fitness

is “as good as it can get” for the

task at hand.

“I know I can do more, but

I still expect to get broken out

there.

“I’m hoping it helps that I can

read surf to know when to stroke

and maximise the power of the

waves.

“I also completed my yacht

masters course last year in the

Canary Islands (including more

than 5000 sailing hours) which

helped me understand swells.”

Planning has been key to

building confidence for his

expedition. Giesen has fixed and

handheld GPS units on-board,

alongside VHF units and charts

to plot his daily position. He will

eat dehydrated food, and has a

water-maker and manual backup

which can pump out 28 and

two litres an hour respectively.

Brown is helping Giesen with

his weather navigation; a sound

plan given he has rowed 30,000

nautical miles on various routes

around the world.

As a result, Giesen will get

five different chart options

a day and take the advice

of 2001 trans-Atlantic race

winners Kevin Biggar and

Jamie Fitzgerald. They got the

weather in the morning and

plotted incremental measures of

achievement on their chart.

He will also take the pair’s

advice on oars.

“They used wetsuit material

for hand grips because it takes

the moisture away and softens

up the catch [of the blade in the

water].

“It’s a bit squishy and better

on your tendons. I’ve got an old

wetsuit so I’ll probably cut that

into strips.”

Eight boats will contest the

event’s solo class. Giesen’s is

one of the oldest in the fleet

but it’s “made with love” and

“seamless finishings”. He can

put out a parachute anchor if

Armageddon pops up in the

middle of nowhere.

“My theory is ‘don’t touch it’,”

Giesen says of the chute. “I’m

about 10 per cent of the boat’s

weight so I can manoeuvre it in

the big surf.”

Giesen finished a degree in

viticulture and winemaking

in 2015 and was working as

a chartered skipper for Kiwi

company MedSailors in

Croatia on sailing holidays for

18-30-year-olds. Then he had an

appetite for something new.

“It was good fun, a lot of

drinking, but by the end I’d had

enough. I wanted to focus on

this.”

If he’s seeking inspiration,

Kiwi Dame Naomi James

embarked on a similar adventure

40 years ago, becoming the first

woman to sail solo around the

world via Cape Horn.

She began her

circumnavigation on a loaned

16m yacht just over two years

after learning to sail.

James suffered radio silence

for 12875km heading south in

the Atlantic, lost her kitten Boris

overboard and was forced to

stop over in Cape Town when

her self-steering failed. Three

months into the voyage, she

realised she was miscalculating

latitude with longitude on her

distance chart. –NZ Herald

records fell in both the men’s and

women’s events.

The men’s record was not just

broken but completely smashed

by race winner Oska Baynes. His

time of 36m 13s over the 10.5km

trail course was a whopping

3min quicker than the previous

best time of 39m 13s set by Dallas

Wichman in 2013.

“I don’t think it’s beatable. The

thing that was most amazing is

that when he crossed the finish

line he just looked like he had

run 100m to go and have a cup of

tea and piece of cake,” said event

organiser Lisa Brignell.

GOOD JOB: Department

of Conservation ranger

Bruce Webster gives the

Boulder Bay course the

thumbs up.

YOUNG GUNS: It was

a fun day out for the

young ones with a 1.2km

run around Taylors

Mistake.

In the women’s event Jean

Kozyniak’s time of 45m 4s was

good enough to shave 24sec off

Liliana Braun’s record of 45m

28s, which she set last year.

Braun finished second in Sunday’s

race in a time of 45m 22s.

Sunday’s conditions were perfect

for racing with the overall

pace among the top runners well

under previous times.

“It was a little bit overcast and

cooler to start with and just got

warmer and warmer as the day

progressed,” said Brignell.

David Fitch was the best of the

Sumner Running Club members,

finishing fifth overall in the

men’s event and second in the

35-49 age category. The majority

of regular Sumner runners experienced

a day on the other side of

the track as race marshals.

The day was also a winner for

the children with 50 prizes going

to those who took part in the

1.2km run.

With numbers on the track

limited to 400, the popular event

sold out entries three weeks prior

to the race.

Results:

Men: Oska Baynes, 36m

13s, 1; Chris Dryden, 38m

42s, 2; Brett Tingay, 39m 21s,

3; Chris Dunell, 39m 48s, 4;

• By Julia Evans

SELWYN SOUNDS is going to

be a sort of homecoming for The

Mockers.

Lead singer Andrew Fagan

said it’s “quite humorous” thinking

about playing in the district

where the band’s career started.

The day-long music festival

at Lincoln Domain on March

3 follows this year’s inaugural

event, which saw the Jordan

Luck Band, Mi-Sex, Dragon and

various Kiwi heavyweights play

in front of a crowd of about 8000.

“The Mockers had some of

their first gigs at Lincoln University,”

Fagan said, fondly remembering

some of the “drunk

agricultural students” during

orientation weeks in the early

80s.

The band, which was based in

Wellington at the time, would

pile onto the Interislander ferry

with all kinds of musical equipment

in tow then get onto a train

bound for a night at Lincoln’s

“big, huge uni hall”.

“We did some really, really

long sets. We used to play the

same set three times in a row.

No one noticed – they were just

enjoying the live music and were

probably too drunk.”

But he said they wouldn’t be

playing the same set three times

special place in Fagan’s heart.

he should have.

“I really miss that kind of

thing. As a band, we did so much

touring. Over and over and over.

There weren’t a lot of bands

doing that extensive amount of

touring to small towns,” Fagan

said.

FESTIVAL: The Mockers

played many of their early

gigs at Lincoln University in

the 1980s and will return for

Selwyn Sounds on March 3 at

the Lincoln Domain.

From playing in tiny Blenheim

pubs to a massive, empty Gore

hall, no town was left out.

“It was even better when we

started to become reasonably

popular and people knew the

material before we started playing,”

he said.

He’s looking forward to recreating

that in Lincoln with The

Mockers original 1985 line-up of

Brett Adams, Geoff Hayden and

Tim Wedde.

“It’ll be great playing with a lot

of other bands from that period,”

he said. This year’s nine-act bill

will include Jimmy Barnes, Stellar

and The Feelers.

“I can’t wait to see if Barnsey

can still hold those long, high

notes in Working Class Man.”

In the meantime, Fagan, who

is now based in Auckland, is

working on material with his

other band Fagan and the People,

which he’ll be recording at

the end of the year.

The Greatest Gift

by Rachael Johns

The poignant, heart-warming story of a woman who wants

nothing else than to be a mum, and one who never wanted to

be a mother.

Mother: Female parent of a child

Mum: The woman who nurtures, raises and loves a child

Radio host Harper Drummond lives for her glamorous career.

Every day she meets fascinating people doing extraordinary things,

but has begun to wonder whether there’s something more for her out

there. She’s financially secure, happily married and loves her job — what more could

she want from life? An interview with a childless couple prompts Harper to think about

whether she could make a contribution. She and her husband, Samuel, know they don’t

want a child in their lives, but could she help someone else become a mother?

The childhood cancer that left Claire Beggs infertile doesn’t matter to her husband,

Jasper. He loves her unreservedly, and they are passionate about their thriving hot air

balloon business in the Hunter Valley. Despite their contentment, Claire is desperate to

have a child — she knows Jasper would be a brilliant father and doesn’t want him to

regret choosing her over a family in the years to come. An egg donor seems to be Claire

and Jasper’s only chance of a happy family.

Can they find someone who will give them the greatest gift?

Poirot - Murder On The Orient

Express [Film Tie-in Edition]

by Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie’s most famous murder mystery, reissued with a new cover to tie in

with the hugely anticipated 2017 film adaptation.

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious

train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one

passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a

dozen times, his door locked from the inside.

Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the

murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.

Spectacular seascape classic

11 Cholmondeley Lane, Governors Bay

Auction: Thursday, 9 November 2017 Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | Listing ID BE192909

Locations like this don’t come up often

but with our vendors committed to a move

overseas, this is a rare opportunity to settle

somewhere very special. In a park like

setting with gently sloping lawns and lush,

established gardens the property connects

directly to the waterfront via a pathway.

With nothing in the way, it’s a magnificent

panorama out to the Lyttelton Harbour

and surrounding hills. Peaceful and ever

changing, this must be the ultimate antidote

to life’s daily stresses.

The classic homestead sits at the top of

the property enjoying the best of the views

and sun. Built with family in mind there are

four bedrooms, two living, 2 sunrooms and

a large library/office that could be a fifth

bedroom. The main family area is open plan

with a huge kitchen at the heart. Granite

benches and state of the art appliances

make this a home-cook’s paradise. The

dining area and adjoining living both open

directly to a large deck and the ever-present

vista. A wood burner with a feature stone

surround adds the cosy warmth of real

flame. Adjoining these spaces is the second

living room, which in turn connects to

a sunny rear facing conservatory and

courtyard. Upstairs is the master suite,

library and a second sunroom with views

right to Godley Head - the perfect spot to

watch ships come and go, with yachts in the

foreground and kids jumping off the pier at

the bottom of your garden.

There are two luxury bathrooms one

being ensuite. There is two car garaging

and tons of off street parking for the whole

clan. Set in the small harbour community

of Governors Bay the property is an easy

commute to central Christchurch, and

a short stroll from all the community

amenities including bars and cafes, the

school and the local pool.

Open Homes Saturdays and Sundays

12:00pm - 12:45pm.
