More than 1000 people are expected to take part in the 5km run/walk followed by group outdoor yoga, guided meditation and a range of workshops. Ms Smith, who is originally from Santa Cruz, California, said the run was aimed at people exercising together and getting endorphins going before dropping into the yoga. “That’s when the body relaxes; and they’ll have food and music and workshops.” She’s thrilled the organisers chose Sumner. “It’s the bee’s knees! We’ve got the hills, the ocean, it’s got that beach vibe, it’s got yoga – that whole chilled out feel. It seems like on a hot day everybody goes out there – flocks to the beach. It’s the Byron Bay of Christchurch.” She hopes a whole range of people will come and give yoga a try. “Mums, dads, teenagers, the local neighbourhood come and just give it a go.” ​ Little River fire tanker won’t be replaced until at least March • By Sarla Donovan LITTLE RIVER Fire Brigade’s 30-year-old fire tanker won’t be replaced until after this summer – leaving firefighters and residents worried property could be put at risk. Bay Harbour News revealed last week that when Fire and Emergency New Zealand replaced the New Zealand Fire Service on July 1, the city council took back Little River’s almost new water tanker, swapping it for a smaller, slower vehicle. Residents and Little River brigade chief fire officer David Irving are concerned the change would limit the brigade’s capacity in an emergency. Birdlings Flat resident Barb Gaeth has started a petition in response to community concerns. It was put up at a community breakfast event on Sunday, where it collected “quite a few” signatures, and has since been placed in the Little River library and the craft store. •Turn to page 10 Alfresco Dining at its best BOOK YOUR CHRISTMAS FUNCTION NOW 25 Esplanade, Sumner | Ph. 326 7226 Receive a fRee gift when you book a cut and colouR package in novembeR New and existing clients.
