calls to

fireworks

• By Andrew King

Accredited installers 10yr workmanship guarantee 6 yr warranty

THE CALL to ban fireworks for

public sale is getting louder in the

wake of a serious house fire in

Harewood.

Last week, Nor’West News

revealed a firework

was thrown on to

the roof of a house

in Becmead Drive

on November 11,

igniting material

and spreading to

the roof space.

The family had

just gone to bed Bruce Irvine

when the smoke

alarm in the kitchen alerted them

to the danger.

The father suffered burns to

his feet before leaving the house.

Police are still investigating the

incident.

Fire investigator Bruce Irvine

said it was lucky no-one was

killed as a result of the ‘idiotic

act’.

WHAT A terrific fight Rose Williams (page 3)

had put up against fast food giant Wendy’s.

Her battle will see Wendy’s staff across New

Zealand backpaid for owed days in lieu.

Rose took her case Ministry of Business, Innovation

and Employment claiming Wendy’s were not honouring

their lieu day committments.

And she’s won. It will mean Wendy’s staff across the country will

share in about $1.6 million in owed pay.

Rose is no stranger to adversity – her husband Murray was killed

in a speedway crash, and she’s had to work hard to keep her

household going. Great stuff Rose.

We’ve refreshed our masthead and page 2, and there’s more

changes in the wind. I’ll keep to you posted.

Fast food worker wins lieu day battle

• By Emily O’Connell

A WOMAN has won a threeyear

battle with a fast food

company to ensure employees

across the country get their days

in lieu.

Wendy’s, which has 23 outlets

in New Zealand, including one

in Hereford St and in Hornby,

has breached two sections of the

Holidays Act 2003.

Wendy’s employee Rose

Williams went to the Ministry

of Business, Innovation and

Employment three years ago

with the lieu day issue after she

had been working at the Hornby

restaurant for a year.

Mrs Williams said Wendy’s

staff were not being given a lieu

day after working on a public

holiday. She told Nor’West News

it feels “pretty good” to win the

case.

Unite Union, of which

Mrs Williams is a delegate,

has estimated it would cost

Wendy’s $1.6 million to pay back

employees’ leiu days.

MBIE senior labour inspector

Kim Baldwin found Wendy’s

breached section 56 and 60 of

the Holidays Act.

Section 56 says an alternative

holiday must be provided to

an employee who works on a

RIGHTS: Rose Williams has won a three-year battle against

Wendy’s to give employees days in lieu when they work a

public holiday.

PHOTO: ANDREW KING

public holiday if that day would

otherwise have been a working

day for them.

Section 60 sets out how those

employees should be paid for the

alternative holiday.

Wendy’s has been ordered

to comply with the two

sections, conduct a review of its

restaurants and keep records of

staff contacted, rosters and leave.

It has been ordered to give

all past and present employees

from the Hornby and Dunedin

restaurants their alternative

holidays, or the equivalent

pay since the restaurants were

opened.

Wendy’s has also been ordered

to do the same for all other

restaurants across the country

backdated to July 1, 2012.

Unite Union national secretary

Gerard Hehir said it was “very

happy” with the result.

“We think it has significance

beyond our dispute with

Wendy’s actually,” he said.

Mr Hehir said it’s hard to

establish what would be a

person’s normal working day

in hospitality because of their

variable shift work.

“The problem we have with

Wendy’s is they said no-one was

entitled to one [an alternative

holiday] at all, because hours

changed occasionally,” Mr Hehir

said.

He admired how tenacious

Mrs Williams was throughout

the trial. Mrs Williams left a job

at Countdown to raise her son

Josh after her husband Murray

died in a speedway crash 14

years ago. She said her late

husband was racing a sidecar

at Ruapuna Speedway when he

crashed and died instantly.

She started working at

Hornby Wendy’s four years

ago.

She said public holidays are

the restaurant’s busiest days and

it wasn’t fair to not get a day in

lieu for working them.

She plans to continue

working at Wendy’s and has not

encountered any problems while

standing up for her rights.

Wendy’s head office could not

respond to Nor’West News before

deadline yesterday.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Police target

drivers outside

St Albans School

• By Julia Evans

A SERIES of police operations

have been planned in a bid to

change driver behaviour in St

Albans.

The ongoing problem of

speed, dangerous driving and

inappropriate parking has been

compromising the safety of

pupils at St Albans School around

Westminster, Trafalgar and

Cranford Sts.

However, yesterday police

and the city council started an

“education and enforcement”

programme to address the issues.

The “CHAOS at the school

gate” operation will target any

reckless drivers or vehicles

parked inappropriately outside

the school.

If any parking offences are

discovered, enforcement officers

will record the car registration

and take photos of the offending

vehicle. An infringement notice

would then be posted to the

vehicle’s owner.

An increased police presence

has already helped reduce

incidents, deputy principal Claire

Howison told Nor’West News, but

it is a matter of addressing them

over the long-term.

Edgeware pool project update

Chairman of the St Albans

Pavilion and Pool Group

Paul Somerville gives an

update about what is going

on with the Edgeware pool

project

NOR’WEST NEWS

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

I am chairman of the St Albans

pool group which represents the

local community, the swim club,

St Albans School and Edgeware

businesses.

We have recently reached some

major milestones which has given

the community a lot of encouragement

and it has brought the

vision of a new community pool

closer to reality.

In March this year we were

granted the resource consent.

This has been a lengthy process

which we started prior to the

earthquakes.

To date this project has cost

the group close to $90,000 raised

solely by the local community.

That doesn’t include pro bono

services provided by various

professionals.

This process pretty well

exhausted the funds raised by the

community over the past eight

years. We are now raising funds

to cover administration costs

and city council resource consent

processing fees. At present we

are covering these payments

by donations from generous

members of the community and

also from quiz nights at Bailies

Bar and Restaurant, which is very

supportive of the project.

It has also been very encouraging

to have city councillors and

community board members,

and our local MP Duncan Webb

at the quiz nights.

Our next step in the process

was to negotiate the sale and purchase

agreement to purchase 42a

Edgeware Rd. With legal advice,

some changes have been agreed

on and the document is now

ready to sign.

However, $6000 will need to be

raised to cover subdivision costs.

A generous grant of $20,000

has been given by the city council

for the costing of the pool’s design

and construction.

We are working with Apollo

Projects on this and will have

estimates by Christmas.

Apollo is looking at pool and

building design options and we

are confident it can give us the

most efficient and cost-effective

operation.

Once we have these estimates

and the title of the land we will be

able start sourcing major funding.

Regarding funding, originally

there was quite a bit of publicity

that Martin Coffey, a local businessman,

was going to fund the

building of the pool. However,

this did not eventuate and Mr

Coffey has since passed away.

DANGEROUS: A Harewood house fire started by a firework

has prompted calls to ban or further restrict the sale and use

of fireworks.

PHOTO: FIRE AND EMERGENCY ​

Calls for fireworks ban

•From page 1

Readers responded to the

article with overwhelming support

for his view that a change is

needed (see page 5).

A number said banning them

was the only way forward, especially

to protect pets which get

very distressed by the constant

noise which continues after

celebration date.

Mr Irvine said it was time for

a public debate.

“We are not about banning

people from an activity they enjoy.

We just want to look at what

changes can be made to give

everybody a fair go,” he said.

Mr Irvine suggested the idea

of only allowing the use of fireworks

during the four-day sale

period leading up to November 5.

“If we were to do that, we [the

public] would need to work

out how to regulate it and who

would enforce it,” he said.

It would then need to be decided

if it would become a bylaw

or be discussed at a Government

level.

SPCA spokeswoman Anna

King said it would prefer ​a public

display kept to one night.

“The problem is that people

are prepared during the week of

the celebration, but not for the

months afterwards,” she said.

fireworks only be used

We asked readers if they

though fireworks should

be banned after a serious

house fire in Harewood

almost ended in deaths

after a firework was

thrown onto the roof. You

responded

Debbie Pascoe – Good

on you Bruce it is high time

for a ban on the public sale of

fireworks. Can we not involve

multi-agencies across medicine,

veterinary, firefighters as well as

the public. The professionals at

the ‘picking up the pieces’ end

must hate it and sadly it isn’t

confined to November 5, many

people hoard them and let them

off randomly. Pet owners cannot

predict when they need to protect

their animals, horses go through

fences and have to be destroyed,

the list goes on. The idiots may

not be the majority of users but

the carnage outweighs the benefits

of the display. When lives are

threatened a line has to be drawn.

Public displays generally are far

safer and that offers the public

the chance to enjoy fireworks of

a much better quality and at least

we know it is only one weekend

that has to be endured.

Cherry Cornelius – Ban

from public sale, I’m fed up

with it every night, the animals

that are terrified and injured.

Public displays only would be

great.

Chris Matthews – They do

need to be banned from public

sale, we have them going off

every night as people stockpile

them. Public displays are fine.

Elaine Beavington – Fireworks

need to be banned. November

5 is long past its use by

date. People abuse what it stands

for. Some fireworks are like a

loaded gun. Anyway, it

has nothing to do with New

Zealand.

Penelope Bell – They

become a public nuisance in the

hands of irresponsible people.

Ban them and save distress,

injury and money.

Michaela Suttie – I am

all for banning them, have had

distressed dogs since they went

on sale and one night had a very

stressed baby due to someone

letting one off right outside his

window. I wouldn’t mind if

people were sensible but each

year it seems to be getting worse

and the stockpiles people are

saving and letting off months

later gets quite tiresome. I use to

love them but now can’t stand

them.

Lexine Harpur – Ban public

sales, stick to controlled events

only. Too many irresponsible

people letting off fireworks after

public events amongst crowds

of people. Almost struck twice

after this year’s public event in

Christchurch. Too late once the

damage is done.

Jenny Jarvis – Ban sales

to the public, I hate how our

younger dog gets so stressed

night after night, we have had

them going off in our area for the

last two months.

Una Atkins – About

time fireworks were given the

boot.

Kim Brown – Prosecute

people using them after November

5.

Lisa-Marie Hallam – Ban

public sales, only have displays.

Too many problems each year

with the public.

Abbie Grammer – Every

year the same thing. It seems the

Local

majority wants them banned and

used only for controlled public

displays. What do we need to do

to change this? How do we get

the ball rolling?

Tania Sisson – Stupid people

doing stupid acts.

Krysie Harding-Browne

– A friend of mine has had fireworks

shot at her house purposefully

(angry neighbour), stick to

public events.

Diane Rangi – I agree with

everyone. Ban them. Organised

Mike Adamson – Tougher

Bev Dobson – Ban the

Wal Thomas – Could have

Tony Waterman – And yet

they’re still legal to buy.

Niki Harper – Organised

Joy Averis – How could anyone

be so stupid.

Heaton continues winning way

• By Andrew King

HEATON Normal

Intermediate girls have won

the national primary school

cricket shield for the third

year in a row.

Played in a Twenty20 format

Heaton cruised to the title,

winning all five games including

a big 107-run victory over

Carterton’s St Mary’s School

in the opening round.

As well as clocking up

plenty of runs with the bat,

they also proved to be lethal

with the ball, bowling out

Dunedin’s Balmacewen Intermediate

for 31.

They also beat Morrinsville

SPORTS

Intermediate by 95 runs,

Papatoetoe’s Holy Cross by 27

runs and Wellington’s Raroa

Normal Intermediate by 72

runs.

It could have been their fifth

title in a row if Hamilton’s

Berkley Normal Middle

School hadn’t won in 2014.

The games were held at

the New Zealand Cricket

High-Performance Centre

in Lincoln from Thursday to

Saturday.

Fire rages, homes at risk

IN THE

GROOVE:

Ted McNabb

and Heather

Marshall

tear up the

dance floor

at the tennis

ball in the

Duvauchelle

Hall, in June,

1958. One

of the many

functions

and events

recorded by

Donald McKay

during his

career.

WELCOME: The cruise ship Himalaya visited Akaroa on December

23, 1960. Serving kai from a hangi are (from left) Naomi Bunker, Olive

Robinson, Marie Tini, unidentified and Polly-Ann Robinson. A Maori concert

party was also held for the passengers in The Gaiety.

Peninsula life captured by photographer

•From page 1

They include pictures of social

and community events, weddings,

farming activities and scenic views

of Banks Peninsula.

Mr McKay, 83, grew up on a farm

in Le Bons Bay.

An only child, he left the farm for

three years to attend Christchurch

Boys’ High School as a boarder,

from 1947-49, where he joined the

camera club.

“We had some really really

good instructors, including Len

Casbolt and Frank McGregor. Also

I used to spend a lot of time at my

uncle Stan MacKay’s as he was the

Christchurch Star Sun photographer

and his son Ross was a skilled horse

racing photographer. I used to

admire their beautiful cameras and

enlargers . . . I’m not sure what I

liked more, the photography or the

equipment.”

Mr McKay sold his push bike and

his best pair of shoes to buy a second

hand camera from H.E. Perry

in Colombo St.

“I used that camera for two or

three years, photographing various

events, weddings, and children.”

He shot his first wedding at 16,

“local people.”

Returning to Le Bons Bay in

1949, Mr McKay’s passion for photography

was a frequent distraction

from farm work. He photographed

aspects of farm life was well as local

weddings, 21sts and other social

events.

In 1961, he was offered a job as

medical photographer at Burwood

Hospital, but continued to travel

back to the peninsula in the weekends

to photograph various events.

The collection includes some

interesting documentary records of

peninsula life, Mr Smith said.

“As a historical record the collection

is extremely rich.”

“He would photograph activities

like docking at his farm in Le Bons

Bay. There’s a whole series of images

of sheep getting their tails chopped

off; guys holding knives splattered

with blood. It’s an interesting record

of a lost way of life.”

Fortunately Mr McKay still had

his job books which record the

content of the pictures. Local researcher

Jan Shuttleworth had also

already identified many subjects

in the photographs by working

through negatives digitised by Mr

McKay.

Nevertheless, cataloguing hundreds

of negatives into the Akaroa

Museum collection would be a

“long process,” Mr Smith said.

The museum plans to mount an

exhibition towards the end of next

year.

TEAM: William Gebbie with his dogs Don and Dick. They were heading winners at the Akaroa

dog trials in 1950. In the background is Mr Gebbie’s Studebaker. PHOTOS: DONALD MCKAY
