Park funding shortfall

concerns residents

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

A $3 million planned upgrade

of South New Brighton Park

could see an eroding estuary

edge protected, and a crumbling

boardwalk removed.

But residents are concerned

about how it will be funded with

a projected $1.7 million shortfall.

A city council staff report will

go before the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board today, with

the hopes of confirming the

upgrades of the jetty, boat ramp,

car park and boardwalk in South

New Brighton Park.

But there could be a funding

problem. Residents say the city

council has estimated the project

will cost $2.96 million but

the city council is expected to

provide $1.2 million through the

South New Brighton Reserves

Management Plan of 2014.

And, after seeing the opening

of the $25 million Christchurch

Coastal Pathway from Ferrymead

to Sumner recently,

South New Brighton residents

are lobbying the city council for

the same treatment.

South New Brighton resident

Deidre McGowan said the

project may only be possible if

the community board gets city

councillors on their side.

“It’ll only happen if they have

the numbers in council to push

it through. Pauline Cotter and

Phil Clearwater do not want

development going ahead in this

area, they always fight it. Raf

Manji and a few others are seeing

there’s some potential down here

though,” she said.

“I’m late for a very

important date!”

In June the Pegasus Post reported

that South New Brighton

residents were furious at the lack

of action from the city council to

stop the estuary edge and walkway

eroding away.

They said they wanted to receive

the same amount of money

spent on them as was being spent

on Sumner and Redcliffs across

the estuary.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board deputy chairman Tim

Sintes said he is “envious” of

Sumner’s multi- million dollar

coastal pathway and sea wall.

PEGASUS POST

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News.......................................3, 7

LIKE SO many of you in the

coastal suburbs, I was perched up

on the hills after being evacuated

due to the tsunami risk yesterday.

Again, like the previous earthquakes,

I am always taken by the

wonderful folk we have in this city.

While I was perched up the top of

Egnot Heights in Redcliffs, the lads

in my car decided they would have

a nap. I was not similarly afflicted

and had a wander around.

I found Nicki of North New

Brighton, who unknowingly

soothed me with her banter and

her beaut two-year-old dog. Then,

Nicki and I found ourselves invited

into a stranger’s home, who brewed

us a cup of dearly needed caffeine.

In her house, were other refugees

– a school caretaker and a lovely

young couple from Germany and

Mexico.

The earthquakes continue to

shake us, but they do not shake our

marvellous Christchurch spirit.

Dancer home to another quake

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AFTER A whirlwind dancing

career in the Big Apple, a former

Bromley dancer has returned

home only to face one of his

biggest fears – earthquakes.

The 7.5 magnitude earthquake

that struck near Hanmer Springs

was a harsh reminder for

Hayden Joseph Withers, 21, who

suffered badly from anxiety and

trauma after the February 2011

earthquake.

He has returned to Bromley

to his family to take part in

The Court Theatre’s summer

production of Legally Blonde

after dancing professionally in

New York city for more than two

years.

He left Christchurch to get

away from the earthquakes and

to study at the American Musical

and Dramatic Academy, which

he graduated from in 2014.

“Getting out of Christchurch

was helpful but even in New

York if doors slammed, or there

was thunder, (or) the subway was

rattling the street . . . you would

think that is an earthquake,” he

said.

Yesterday, Withers and his

family were evacuated from

their Bromley home after the

earthquake struck.

ON STAGE: Hayden Joseph Withers performing in the musical

All Shook Up at The Fireside Theatre, Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin,

United States.

“I am pretty tired, I was up the

hill until 7am . . . my mum was

pretty upset and it reminded me

a lot of the September 4, 2010,

earthquake,” he said.

Wither’s fear of earthquakes

was amplified after the February

2011 earthquake when quake

predictor Ken Ring said an 8.2

magnitude quake would strike

on March 20. A 5.1 aftershock

struck on the day.

“I thought at that point, that

was the end . . . for the next while

I was scared to leave my room,

go anywhere,” he said.

He said while he was reasonably

calm about yesterday’s earthquake

and was still attending

rehearsals at The Court Theatre,

he had not yet processed it.

Fresh from his most recent

endeavour sailing around the

Caribbean on the Disney Dream

cruise trip as a dancer, Withers

knows a thing or two about

facing his fears to chase his

dreams.

“I am actually scared of the

ocean. Sometimes I would get

really anxious and I would be

crying or whatever,” he said.

Withers was seven when he

nearly drowned after slipping

on a rock and falling into a river,

staying under water for about

30sec before his father rescued

him.

But he said he braved his fear

of the ocean to work for what he

describes as the “most magical

company in the world.”

“Making magic for so many

people every day was so special

. . . the kids just die for it – they

love it.”

As for living in New York,

Withers describes it as a place of

beauty, culture and opportunity,

but somewhere you are a small

fish in a big pond.

On his return to New York,

Withers plans to find a place

to settle down after “gypsying”

around the United States for

so long before he gets back to

auditioning for shows.

In Brief

LIVING EARTH SMELL

The city council and Living

Earth are still in talks with

Environment Canterbury over

odour fines. In June, ECan fined

the city council and Living

Earth $1000 each for an odour

that came from Living Earth’s

compost facility in Bromley.

A city council spokeswoman

said it “has disputed the odour

breach and cannot comment

further” as it has not heard back

from ECan.

WHALE POOL OPEN

New Brighton’s whale pool is

back in action for the summer.

The city council reopened a

number of outdoor summer

pools on the weekend, while

some paddling pools will open

in the coming weeks. Pools in

Waltham, Halswell, Lyttelton,

and Jellie Park were also

opened on Saturday, along with

paddling pools in Scarborough,

New Brighton and Spencer

Park.

POPULATION RISING

A city council report has

signalled that the population of

the Coastal and Burwood wards

is expected to reach 52,200

by 2018. In June 2013, the

population was 48,600. The two

wards make up about 13.6 per

cent of the city’s population.

PEGASUS POST

Tony Murdoch

Recording sporting history

Tony Murdoch has just

published his new sports

history book Black and

White about the North

Beach Surf Lifesaving

Club. It coincides with

the club’s centenary

celebrations. Fraser

Walker-Pearce spoke

to him

You must be thrilled to have

published the book when you

did.

Yes, exactly. It was published in

time for the club’s centenary celebrations

over Labour Weekend.

They had hundreds attend that.

Is this your first sports history

book?

No, I have written two other

sports histories, one on the

Riccarton Cricket Club in 2002

and then in 2013 I did the 150th

jubilee history of the Christchurch

Football Club. Then this

one came along, they asked me

to do it, and I’ve been doing that

ever since.

So you’ve been working on

this for the past three years?

Yes. It’s a big project, I think

it’s about 240 pages. Probably the

club records weren’t as detailed

as we would’ve liked but we were

able to cross-reference with Surf

Lifesaving New Zealand’s annual

reports and check most of it off.

Things like results and that kind

of thing were hard to check off

though.

Who approached you from

the club to do the project?

Roger Smith the president of

the club talked to me about it.

He’s lived and breathed the club

for about three or four years.

What’s different about this

book compared to your others?

This one is more of a coffee

book style. With lots of newspaper

clippings like the famous gala

dances at North Beach. That’s basically

how the club got through

the Great Depression and that

kind of thing. [In the book] there

are ads for the dances, we used

the full width of the page in the

book with these photos and I

BLACK AND WHITE: Tony Murdoch has coincided the publication

of his sports history book Black and White with the centenary

celebrations of the surf club it is written about.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

think it really adds to the look of

the book as well.

Obviously it’s called Black and

White, but that’s also the style of

the book you’ve created?

No, no. There’s a story to that.

It’s called Black and White because

the club colours are black

and white. But also the personality

of the club is very pragmatic,

they’re hard workers and they get

things done. They make black and

white decisions and they don’t

muck around – they’re black and

white about everything. I ran that

past the committee near the start

and they were well pleased to

think that’s what people think of

the club.

How was the club founded?

The original thought was that

it was a group of men who were

members of the New Brighton

Surf Lifesaving Club who got together

and decided to make a club

a little further along the beach.

But the real story is that there was

a guy called Ray Blank. It became

pretty clear as I was looking into

it that Ray Blank and a group of

guys from a North Beach businessman’s

association got together

and had land interests in the area.

They decided that if there was a

surf club in the area that would

bring people out there and raise

their house prices. And they did

quite well out of it.

Do all of your books look

quite deep into the club’s history?

Yes, each of the books has a

twist to them somewhere in it.

The twist in the rugby book was

me saying that the conventional

theory of the first game of rugby

in the country was played in Nelson

in 1871 was wrong. It’s in all

the official New Zealand histories

saying that. But the Christchurch

book showed quite clearly that

wasn’t the case. They couldn’t

have – as the game didn’t exist in

New Zealand back then, they just

played a hybrid game of soccer.

It was actually out of Christ’s

College that the game in Christchurch

grew.

What are the other titles of

your books?

The Riccarton Cricket Club

book is called Green and Gold,

and the rugby book was called

The Old Club, just like the old

newspapers used to call them.

How would you define your

style of books?

Lots of anecdotes, lots of personalities.

This book goes through

a whole lot of life members, and

families of members. These are

guys that are prepared to swim

out 400-500m to save someone. I

mean, can you do that? I certainly

can’t.

No, I’d definitely 100 per cent

drown. Do you work part-time

as well as all of this?

Yes, I have a full-time job at St

Bede’s College. I’m the alumni

and community development

manager. I’ve been there for eight

years. Previously I was the chief

executive of Canterbury Cricket

and chief executive of Athletics

New Zealand. I was a teacher at

Aranui High School before that.

You have a huge sporting

background, did you ever play

yourself?

Modestly. I played rugby and

cricket, unsurprisingly I played

rugby for Christchurch and

cricket for Riccarton.

How did you start your writing

career?

I actually started at the

Christchurch Star back in the

day. When I was teaching I also

co-wrote a few history textbooks.

There was a group of us at Aranui

High, including John Rosanowski

and we wrote a series of history

books for fifth form (year 11)

students.

What subjects did they cover?

A little bit of New Zealand

history, Martin Luther King, race

relations in South Africa, we

touched on the Springbok Tour.

Also the gold rushes, New Zealand

foreign policy, and also two

books on Hitler and Germany for

social studies. To teach students

from your own textbook is quite

CLASSIC

RACES: North

Beach surf

club’s 1981

crew. The last

surf crew to win

a national title in

the long course

race until this

year.

a thrill.

And were you born and bred

in Christchurch?

Yes, born and bred. My brother

Tim and I have lived in Sumner

all our lives and I think my next

project might be on the Sumner

Surf Lifesaving Club and their

centenary.

What schools did you attend

back in the day?

I was at St Bede’s and then onto

Canterbury University where I

studied American history. After

that I went on to teaching at

Aranui High for about 16 years.

And who’s with you out in

Sumner?

My wife and I live out there and

we have two adult children. I met

my wife at a dance at the Sumner

surf club.

So surf clubs played a big part

of you growing up as well?

Surf clubs have a big role in

what I call the rite of passage.

They had dances and social

gatherings, they provided a social

space for kids in quite an interesting

time of their lives. There aren’t

many other sports that boys and

girls just hang out and compete

together that much. Many men

and women put countless hours

into keeping these clubs going as

well.

Why do you write sports

history books?

If you look in the book, there’s

only one thing that has stayed in

the North Beach community for

the past 100 years, and that’s the

surf club. There’s been post offices

and cafes and restaurants and that

kind of thing but the only thing

that is still there is the volunteerrun

surf club. So I kind of write

to give them their turn in the sun

even if only for a minute.

Surf club founder hero and villain

ashion

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

WHILE RESEARCHING for his

first book on the North Beach

Surf Lifesaving Club, Black and

White, Tony Murdoch found

that the founder of the club was

both a hero and a villain.

Ray Blank (right) banded

together local businessmen, who

owned a lot of land in the area,

to create a surf club in 1916 in

Gardening

the hopes that it would raise its

value.

And it worked.

But while Blank went on to

become a local hero at the club,

Murdoch looked into his background

and found that perhaps

that title

otoring

was undeserving.

“To some he was the uncrowned

king of New Brighton,

but to others he [had the] more

disparaging title of ‘Sand King’

bestowed,” he said.

Blank was prosecuted by the

borough council in 1935 for

owning buildings with insufficient

water and sanitary arrangements.

asty Bites

“Everyone knew that Blank

was experienced in acquiring

structures on the cheap and

shifting them to suitable sites.

Witness the number of baches

around [New] Brighton, Burwood

and Avondale,” he said.

It was story gems like this,

that Murdoch

oney

discovered while

writing a 240 page history the

club.

Further in the book, Murdoch

writes about brothers Pat and

Ian Stuart, who had a cunning

plan to “bail out” of a surf club

canoe when a large wave came,

so the members at the front

would be thrown forward and

into the water.

“It worked beautifully and Pat

and I were guffawing behind the

shore break when Don Dalton

paddled past on a ski and said

‘you shouldn’t have done that,

the canoe’s broken in half’,” Ian

Stuart said in the book.

The brothers had to “face the

music” when the two halves

of the canoe washed up on the

shore.

Other tales in the book include

the triumph of the 1981 North

Beach surf boat crew which took

on the country’s best crews and

won in Oakura, New Plymouth.

Brothers Dave and Steve Pipe

as well as Ron Vette, Terry Kreft

and Rob Lindsay took to the

water and won gold in the long

course race and took silver in the

short course in a photo finish

with the Whangamata crew.

Four years later however, when

the local competition came to

New Brighton, the decision was

reversed and North Beach was

awarded the gold in the short

SNAPPED CANOE: Ian and Pat Stuart, Greg Day, “Tiny” Leech and Gary Robertshaw holding

their broken canoe.

course as well.

Pegasus Post reported in

October that after a few beers to

celebrate Dave Pipe’s 60th birthday,

the crew decided to enter

the Surf Life Saving Nationals to

be held on New Brighton Beach

in March and the World Masters

Games next year.

The club’s 75th anniversary

celebrations were celebrated in

1991, and was the highlight of

the season for most members.

“By all accounts the celebrations

were a major success with

a good attendance and plenty

of smiling faces as old friend[s]

renewed contact . . . the highlight

of the season was undoubtedly

the 75th jubilee which was a

resounding success,” Murdoch

said.

GOOD TIMES: A North Beach gala held sometime between 1916 and 1920. Legend has it the ferris wheel was shut off by the

police shortly after this photo was taken. Right: North Beach’s 75th jubilee celebrations in 1991.

CARDBOARD CRAFTS: Queenspark pupils got

creative last week when they were handed

cardboard in all shapes and sizes. Their task was to

recycle the cardboard and other various junk items

from a box, cylinder or sheet into something new.

Some pupils created tanks and machines, while

others made miniature cars, binoculars, signs and

WAITAKIRI and

Marshland were two

of three schools in the

city to be showcased to

international guests last

week.

On Friday, the two

eastern schools, along with

Halswell School, hosted

top education officials from

Ireland, Japan, Turkey,

Greece and Mexico.

The officials were shown

the schools’ flexible learning

spaces and “studentcentred

approach,” Education

Minister Hekia Parata

said.

“New Zealand’s schools

are of great interest in the

international community,”

she said.

“Our curriculum puts

the students at the centre of

learning, and each school

has a unique vision for how

it delivers quality teaching

and learning.”

Waitakiri, Marshland

and Halswell schools

have all been rebuilt since

sustaining damage in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The officials also visited

Auckland schools Ormiston

Primary, Kelston

Deaf Education Centre,

Ormiston Junior, Ellerslie

Primary and Te Kura

Kaupapa Maori o Puau te

Moananui a Kiwa earlier in

the week.

Marshland principal

Jacqui Pascoe said the

school gets many visitors

but this group was special.

“We get a lot of visitors

through the school as

most do. But this is special

because it is a group from a

whole lot of countries like

Italy and Japan,” she said.

“They’re getting a

big tour of the city and

schools, so absolutely we’re

excited about hosting

them.”

Handling fireworks

more responsibly

Fire risk

management

officer Mark

Thomas talks

about fireworks,

banning certain

kinds, the impact

public displays

have had on public safety

and looking after animals

around Guy Fawkes.

Thirty years ago Guy Fawkes

night caused a holding of breath

by just about every firefighter in

the country.

Inevitably somewhere a

sawmill would end up burning

end to end. Or a town would

be circled in flames as trees and

scrub went up in flames. Or

someone not even celebrating

the night would find their garage

on fire.

The news would report the

tragic loss of an eye by ill-used

skyrocket. Letter boxes were the

target of ‘double-happy’ bombs.

For firefighters it made no sense

at all.

Thankfully we’ve come on a bit

since then. The ban on rockets

and bangers

helped. The

provision of public

displays has been

a big plus. And

perhaps we should

acknowledge

that more recent

developments in health and

safety has had an effect on

people’s behaviour. Whatever

the reasons it was gratifying to

see just nine fire calls overnight

on November 5. Grass, scrub,

fences and a couple of bins put

down to fireworks. It’s not

perfect. But it’s encouraging.

Animal rescues are also quite

common around Guy Fawkes as

crackers terrify dogs, cats and

other animals. This week saw

three of these type of incidents,

a dog, some ducklings and

very topically a lamb stuck

in a stream at Cashmere on

Wednesday night. None were

necessarily fireworks related but

all involved the problem solving

skills our firefighters develop

every day in the multitude of

different events they now attend.

They’re pretty damn good

actually.

Would you buy a piece

of the residential red

zone to help turn it into

a forest park? Hamish

Monro, a descendant of

Canterbury’s pioneering

Deans family, has offered

to buy red zone land to

begin the proposed Avon-

Otakaro Forest Park – and

he hopes others will follow

suit.

You said:

Linda James – If the

Government/taxpayers already

own the land, why do people

have to buy it? Good idea for

donations for the plants though.

Marie Stanley – I thought

the Government owned this

land, isn’t that why they did

the residents over? Oh bloody

hell. That is taxpayers’ money

not theirs. That land should by

rights belong to New Zealand

and we should be able to access

it whenever we like and do what

we as New Zealanders want.

It would be a wonderful place

to plant a tree in memorial

or plant the placenta of our

babies to nurture and build

a beautiful park land for our

future generations in perpetuity.

I hate the way the National

Government has handled all of

this. No heart.

Anthony Collie – Because

now the Government seem to

think that “they” spent money

on the land not EQC and

now want a return on their

“investment”.

Anxiety and breathing

– are they related?

When good breathing goes bad

Have you experienced any of these

breathing difficulty symptoms?

• Disturbed sleep

• Erratic heartbeats*

• Feeling anxious and uptight

• Upset gut/nausea

• Chest pains*

• Shattered confidence

• Tired all the time

• Achy muscles and joints

• Dizzy spells* or feeling spaced out

• Irritability or hypervigilance

• Frequent yawning and sighing

• Breathing discomfort*

• Pins and needles

• Feelings of ‘air hunger’

*Check with your doctor if you experience these symptoms.

These questions are asked on the website

www.BradCliff.com. BradCliff was started by

North Island physiotherapists Dinah Bradley

and Tania Cliffton Smith, who specialise

in hyperventilation and anxiety treatment.

Their website notes one in 10 people

experience some form of breathing pattern

disorder or chronic over breathing at some

time in their lives, resulting in a range of

disturbing or frightening symptoms puzzling

to you and your doctor.

You feel unwell because of overbreathing,

and overbreathing makes you feel unwell.

A vicious cycle is established, which is a

major stress all by itself. This is experienced

currently by many Cantabrians, says Ietje

van Stolk of Physical Sense Gym & Physio.

As she explains, it is normal to breathe fast

and in the upper chest when we are in danger

and fight or flight is needed. We know all

about that here, due to the earthquakes.

Normally, once the danger is gone, our

breathing should restore itself within a

couple of days. We would then be using the

diaphragm for our normal nonstressed

breathing. We have been having a hard

time restoring our breathing pattern here

in Canterbury because every time our body

tried to achieve that, the next aftershock came

rolling in. Even though the aftershocks have

significantly diminished, some people’s fight

or flight mode breathing has become chronic,

or habitual, Ietje says. And, as she points out,

using the wrong muscles for breathing means

these overworked muscles cause headaches,

neck pain and jaw pain.

With fast upper chest breathing, sighing

and yawning, the resulting disturbance of our

oxygen and carbon dioxide levels can give us

the feeling we are not able to control our own

body. One moment you are are feeling fine,

next moment your chest feels tight, you feel

out of breath, your heart beats erratically and

you may even experience dizziness and/or

tingling. Very scary if you do not understand

what is happening. No wonder this causes

anxiety. Not being the boss over our own

body makes us anxious, anxiety feeds the

faulty breathing pattern, and so it goes on.

The BradCliff physiotherapists have

established a national network of practitioners

that regularly train together and can help you

overcome this problem.

Physical Sense is part of that network.

To make an appointment phone 377 2577.

Gallery numbers

below target

• By Bridget Rutherford

CHRISTCHURCH Art

Gallery did not meet

its visitor target for the

first three months of

the financial year, while

Canterbury Museum has

had record numbers.

The city council’s

performance report from

July to September 30

showed it had hoped to

get about 400,000 visitors.

However, it had met 72

per cent of its target.

Meanwhile, Canterbury

Museum achieved

record visitor numbers in the past two

months for its exhibition Air New Zealand

75 Years.

September saw 48,879 visitors, while in

October, 63,815 people visited.

City council customer and community

general manager Mary Richardson said

Canterbury Museum was better served by

bus routes and tourist buses.

She said the city council was looking at

a bus parking area for near the gallery.

“This is likely to be considered by committee

early next year.”

There were also a range of road works

around the gallery, she said, and the gallery’s

car park was still closed.

The city council hoped once the car

park was reopened at the end of the

month and it has leased the cafe early

next year, numbers would pick back up,

she said.

The gallery was officially reopened in

December after being damaged in the

February 2011 earthquake.

It cost $60 million to repair.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

No job too small at

this repair business

Scratch on the bumper? Dent in the door?

Damage like this can happen so easily – in

supermarket car parks, for example. And

the place to get minor damage quickly and

professionally repaired is SMART Repairs

in Lichfield Street.

SMART (Small to Medium Automotive

Repair Techniques) Repairs provides a topquality

service with a quick turnaround

– vehicles are usually in and out within a

couple of days.

SMART Repairs is owned and operated

by Brian and Maxine Caffell, who bought

their first panelbeating business in 1993.

Brian has a total of 31 years’ experience in

the trade, so customers can be confident

they will get a first-class job.

Services include paintless dent removal,

or PDR, and while a large percentage of

their work is non-insurance, they also

provide insurance quotes and carry out

those repairs quickly and efficiently.

To keep their customers on the road while

their vehicle is in the workshop, SMART

Repairs recently acquired a courtesy car,

and this has already proven to be a great

help for people, Maxine says. They also offer

a pick-up and delivery service if required.

As a small, friendly operation, SMART

Repairs specialises in small to medium

repair work, with no job too small, Maxine

says. Their aim is to provide personalised

service, and make it easy for customers

unsure what to do if their vehicle is

damaged.

“We take pride in our work and ensure

that our customers are happy with the

results.”

SMART Repairs is located at 272

Lichfield Street, at the Fitzgerald Avenue

end. Opening hours are Monday to Friday,

8am-4.30pm.

To enquire about repairs to your

vehicle, call in, or phone 377-0409.

Versatile unique character home in Purau

5 Monalua Avenue, Purau Bay

Price: $565,000

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 1 office/music room | 2 car-garage | double carport | off-street parking | Listing # 2972

PEGASUS POST

Set on a picturesque level 809m2 section

close to the beach and with a stream

boundary this well-built strong home has

a lot to offer. With 4 bedrooms, 2 living

areas, 2 bathrooms and a large musicroom/study,

the design of this house gives

plenty of living options. There is extensive

decking at both the front and the rear of

the house to enjoy the lovely sheltered easy

care garden with its well established fruit

and native trees. North facing and with nice

sea views from the upstairs bedroom and

front deck area. Wonderful indoor/outdoor

flow and 2 wood-burners for those colder

nights. As the front part of the home is

semi self-contained, previous owners have

utilised this by renting it out as holiday

accommodation. There is a double garage, a

double carport and extra off-street parking

for the toys. Don’t delay this lovely family/

holiday home will be sure to impress.

Note: (Agents Own Home).

Purau Bay is only 2km’s from Diamond

Harbour and approximately 40 minutes’

drive from Christchurch CBD, making

it a highly desirable holiday destination

as it is so usable being close to Chch. No

more spending hours in the car to get to

your holiday home, you can even holiday

and commute if needed. Properties in this

lovely valley and by such a safe swimming

beach are defying all the odds and selling

fast generally as they come up very seldom.

Excellent swimming, boating, walking and

stunning sunsets on the hills, easy access to

Lyttelton via the Diamond Harbour ferry,

local shops, cafés and bar make this a fun

filled place to visit. Properties here make

an excellent investment and Purau Bay and

valley is a truly magical place to visit or live.
