Facebook page PierPeoples founder Todd Gibson has called the film A Generation Lost which will look back on a great era in New Brighton’s social history. Proudly locally owned and published by Star Media Award winning publishing group Linwood, Avonside, Richmond, Shirley, Burwood, Dallington, Wainoni, Bromley, Aranui, Avondale, Bexley, New Brighton, Northshore, Queenspark, Parklands, South Brighton Surfers, skateboarders and musicians will be among the people interviewed for the documentary, which Mr Gibson hopes will be finished by the end of summer. The idea came about when talking about New Brighton with friends, joking that they could write a book about all the stories they have. “Then, one day, I was just sitting around going through Netflix documentaries and thought hang on a minute, I’ve got a camera and I know how to use it. The idea just came to me.” The film will be interviewbased. “There’s so many stories that could come out of it that, in all IN THE MAKING: PierPeoples founder, surfer and video-maker, Todd Gibson, is making a documentary about New Brighton in the 1980s and 90s. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Looking back on Brighton in the 80s, 90s honesty, when I think about it, it gets a bit overwhelming,” said Mr Gibson. He hopes the title A Generation Lost will highlight a great era that is now lost in time. The film will be available online and Mr Gibson hopes to have a screening somewhere in New Brighton when it is released. •From the editor, page 2 Restore your oiled CEDAR BLINDS with our re-oiling service.

The plan will then go to Regenerate Christchurch which will then use it to consult the community on issues like the red zone, coastal hazards and climate change. Called the How Team, it will be made up of about eight residents. An application process is under way. Regenerate, the city council and Environment Canterbury will also be represented. About 2000 households from Rodney St south to the end of Rockinghorse Rd are the focus of the study. Said team convener Rachel Puentener: “It is difficult to know how to have a conversation with all of these people about something as complex as the impacts of climate change.” Ms Puentener lives in South New Brighton and works parttime for Renew Brighton and Environment Canterbury. Renew Brighton is a community development organisation and charitable trust which was formed following the earthquakes with the aim of connecting various groups.
