He had a life-long love of the water. Sarla Donovan reports WARREN PASLEY had hands like paddles, and the feet to match. His friends remember his swimming stroke as beautiful, effortless but incredibly quick. Friend of 67 years, Tony Johnson lived across the road from the Pasley family, which shifted from Invercargill when Warren’s father Eric bought the Redcliffs Four Square Grocery Shop in 1950. The site on Main Rd is now where the New World supermarket is. Warren and his two brothers Tom and John were prominent swimmers and the Sumner Surf Life Saving Club “snapped the Pasley boys up,” said Mr Johnson, who was a member at the club and is now patron. But the brothers had to bag a certain amount of sugar, flour and other dry goods at the shop each day before they were allowed out to the beach. Mr Johnson said the shop was one of the first to parcel up goods for self-service, instead of customers having them weighed at the counter. A teenager when he joined the Oreti Surf Live Saving Club in Invercargill, Warren competed as a junior and a senior from 1945-49. He was also a keen pool swimmer who held national intermediate backstroke records for 100 and 220 yards during those years. •Turn to page 4 Key issues for 2018 include Coastal Pathway and roading • By Sarla Donovan THE COASTAL Pathway and peninsula roading are both key priorities this year. Bay Harbour News asked members of the Banks Peninsula and Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community boards what were the key issues in their areas. Heathcote ward city councillor Sara Templeton said finishing the Coastal Pathway was a top priority. A $10 million funding shortfall remains for the Sara Templeton Moncks Bay to Shag Rock section. “This is the most difficult and dangerous section,” said Cr Templeton. “It currently has no city council footpath. There was one prior to the earthquakes, but the rockfall and land movement remediation removed it. The city council needs to provide both safe pedestrian access along here and to complete the cycleway to Sumner.” •Turn to page 3 Pack a it ’ s Picnic, Island Time! 0800 436 574 Discover walking tracks, native birds, penguins, the swimming beach and shipwrecks, all on the island that’s only 15 minutes from Christchurch!
