He recently gifted his entire collection of photographic negatives to Akaroa Museum. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Photographic collection reflects peninsula history • By Sarla Donovan A 30-YEAR record of life on Banks Peninsula has been donated to the Akaroa Museum. Retired photographer Donald McKay recently gifted his entire collection of photographic negatives to the museum. Museum collections manager Daniel Smith said the images were an important record of Banks Peninsula life covering the years from about 1950 through to the 80s, a period which was not well-represented in the museum’s existing collection. •Turn to page 10 Roller Blinds cleaned from as little as $20 per blind Ph 377 0770, 330 Cashel St, Christchurch www.blindcare.co.nz SCAN QR code for Info > WE ARE OPEN Mon - Fri 7.30am to 5.00pm Get ready for summer Great tips for great barbecue food Page 15 COOL SUMMER AIR CONDITIONER OFFER! e3 TM Fujitsu 6kW Heat Pump $2,699 FULLY INSTALLED Sunday 18 March 2018 FULLY INSTALLED* MODEL: ASTG18KMCB city2surf.co.nz Accredited installers 10yr workmanship guarantee 6 yr warranty Lodestar Avenue residents may get wish for no more trucks • By Emily O’Connell AFTER MONTHS of being woken by passing trucks in the early hours, Lodestar Ave residents are hopeful a new citywide bylaw will give them some peace and quiet. The Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, which will give the city council the ability to restrict heavy vehicles on certain roads, was approved by councillors on Thursday. Now Halswell Ward city councillor Anne Galloway is pushing for heavy vehicle restrictions to be placed on Lodestar Ave. She said the restriction would be put on the avenue in mid-2018 if city council staff approved it. “Such a decision would be the outcome of a technical assessment and public consultation, which has not yet occurred,” Cr Galloway said. A resident at Lady Wigram Retirement Village on Lodestar Ave was very pleased it had been approved. “We are waiting in hope,” he said. On Thursday, Cr Galloway asked a city council staff member whether the new bylaw would be applicable to Lodestar Ave. •Turn to page 4 Call for a FREE Home consultation & quotation today!
