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.

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.

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 Southern View

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 Southern View before

deadline yesterday.

•From page 1

He said it would have to assess

each case individually. “An

operational policy will need to be

developed to support the bylaw,”

he said.

Cr Galloway said the timing

for the policy hadn’t been determined.

“Such a policy would

contain a number of conditions

where restrictions can be considered,

such as the number and type

of heavy vehicles using the street,”

she said.

Cr Galloway said she’s pleased

the city council will now have the

tools it needs to address speed

Stonemasons start on Timeball

• By Sarla Donovan

STONEMASONS will start

work tomorrow on Lyttelton’s

iconic Timeball Tower as its

rebuild picks up pace.

They will start installing the

exterior stonework this week

using stones from the original

structure where possible, said

Heritage New Zealand general

manager Nick Chin.

A small group of workers have

been stationed at the Ferrymead

site where the stones are stored,

cleaning and preparing them for

the stonemasons to use.

Wellington firm Bosworth

Stone won the contract for the

stonework, which is expected

to take until March to

complete.

Two stonemasons will be on

site and will have helpers at

various times.

Meanwhile, the first concrete

pour – up to the first floor of the

reinforced concrete walls – will

also take place this week.

Mr Chin said everything is

“on track and on budget” for an

April completion date.

The $2.8 million restoration

project has been funded by a

$1.3 million Lotteries grant; $1.1

million grant from charitable

trust, Landmark; and $325,000

from Stout Trust, Holcim

PROGRESS: Repairs to Lyttelton’s Timeball Tower are picking up pace, with stonemasons are

at work on site. The aim is to restore the tower which stood tall against the harbour hills before

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Cement, Parkinson Memorial

Trust and the Mainland

Foundation, said Mr Chin. The

insurance payout funded the

demolition costs.

Community members have

driven the campaign to rebuild

the landmark and they would be

acknowledged and celebrated at

an opening ceremony when the

Timeball was completed. The

landscaping will eventually be

restored as much as possible to

its original state, with new information

boards on site which

will display the Timeball’s

history.

It is one of only 15 left in the

world and the only one to have

undergone a post-earthquake

restoration.

When completed, the tower

will once again overlook the

harbour and township, with the

Frustration over centre repairs

City council

meeting with

community

• By Sarla Donovan

HEATHCOTE Valley residents

Foulkes said

the building

was opened in

December last

year but it’s not warm enough.

“The heating isn’t sufficient.

There are only overhead heaters

and it doesn’t warm up in the

winter. It needs a timer or some

heat pumps. People won’t want

to hire the space out if it’s

freezing cold. It’s not fit for

purpose.”

Mrs Foulkes said as well as

and the doors out onto the deck

can’t be opened.

She also said if there

are any more than two plugs

being used at any one time in

the kitchen, the power shorts

out.

“We’re really concerned that

the building will soon be over

a year old and, at that point, I

don’t know if we will have any

recourse. We really need to get it

fit for purpose,” she said.

But city council capital

delivery community manager

Darren Moses said all

“contractual defects” had been

remedied at the centre.

But Heathcote Ward city

councillor Sara Templeton said

the city council may also have

to remedy some of the issues

identified by the community.

“It might be that the

contractors have done what

they’ve been asked but, due

to the design, it’s not fit for

purpose. It may be that the city

council needs to do a few extra

things to make sure that the

building is fit for purpose.

I’m working on that at the

moment.”

Mrs Foulkes said it was

possible some of the problems

could be regarded as health and

safety issues. She said it was

important to meet with city

council staff to work out some

solutions.

The community centre also

accommodates the Heathcote

Voluntary Library. The original

was demolished following the

The signals are being installed

The intersection is one of six

said the roundabout was meant to

be upgraded in 2011 but was put on

She said the change would make

the intersection safer. The landscaping

and lighting will also be

The traffic lights should be

also be replaced after the work

on the Lyttelton St intersection is

completed,’’ Ms Ellis said.

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

Principal’s Report

Warm greetings to

the Linwood College

community. Kia ora

koutou. Talofa lava.

Kia orana. Malo e

lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa

atu. Namaste.

Kumusta.

It is with pleasure

that I am able to

report to our community that Linwood College

has had a most positive year.

It has been a year of significant thinking and

planning as we listen to our community’s

input regarding how we should re-develop

with our whole-school rebuild. Linwood

College is clear-eyed about the forms of

education that work for our students and we

have this bedrock of understanding through

our partnership with our community.

Our community views education as

the wellbeing of the whole person. All

developmentally positive experiences enrich

our students’ understanding of whom they

are and broaden their outlook. They nurture

students’ classroom focus by contextualising

their learning and sowing the seeds of positive

ambition.

Sports Awards Night

Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed

curriculum’. This means the school, students

and families knowing:

1. Students’ learning and skills as they come

into LC from our partner primary schools

and building on these successes.

2. How the learning at LC connects to what

the students want to do when they leave

school. “What are my post-school pathways

and how does LC help me to achieve these

pathways?”

In this way learning is meaningful to the

individual and strengths-based. At Linwood

College the individual matters.

Finally, the Education Review Office reviewed

Linwood College in the second half of Term 3.

The confirmed report is now public and I am

delighted to say that the school is back on

the three year return cycle. It is a testament

to everyone’s collective vision and positive

work for our school: Board of Trustees,

staff, students, whanau, partner schools and

community.

Nga mihi nui and best wishes for the festive

season and summer holiday.

Richard Edmundson: Tumuaki - Principal

Waitaha Haka Competition

Over Labour Weekend, Kimihia Te Matauranga Kapa Haka Group competed at the Waitaha

Secondary Schools’ Haka Competition at the Aurora Centre. The group was made up of a

combination of students from Linwood College, Christchurch Girls’ High School and three

schools from Te Tai Poutini (West Coast), those being Westland College, Greymouth High

School and Buller High School.

The competition was of a very high standard this year with ten groups competing for a spot at

the National Haka Competition in 2018.

Kimihia gained placings in the following

categories:

1st place in Poi

2nd place in Moteatea/ Traditional Chant

2nd place in Whakawatea/ Exit Song

2nd equal Te Whakahua o te Reo/ Language

with Te Pa o Rakaihautu

3rd place in Haka

3rd place in Waiata-a-ringa/ Action Song

3rd place in Waiata Tira/ Choral

3rd place for Hamiora Te Rupe/ Male Leader

Kimihia was placed 3rd overall in the competition. We are also very proud of Dayton Rapana-

Pham who was placed 2nd for his Whaikorero/Traditional Speech.

We would like to acknowledge our Kaitataki/Leaders of the group, Mairieka Prentice and

Hamiroa Te Rupe, for all their hard work in leading the group.

Duke of Edinburgh – Silver Expedition

Once again, Linwood College’s annual 'Sports Awards' ceremony was a very successful

evening. We were lucky enough to have Shane Thrower return to Linwood College as our guest

speaker, talking about how sport has impacted his life and the opportunities that it can provide.

Richard Edmundson (Principal) and Finlay Laird (Linwood College Board of Trustees member),

presented the major awards for the evening. We also had special guests from Christs' College

and ARA Institute of Canterbury in attendance.

We would like to thank the Linwood College community and Linwood College Board of Trustees

for their continuous support as we continue to pursue sporting excellence.

Congratulations to all of our award winners for 2017.

Top awards were presented to the following accomplished students:

The outdoor Duke of Edinburgh

experience has helped us to

learn new things about life and

also about ourselves. Although

it pushed us to our mental

and physical limits, it was the

best experience ever! We have

learnt to really be grateful for

the small things in life!

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 1 office/study | 3 car-garage | 3 off-street parks | Property ID: BE192870

... this special property is only fifteen

minutes from the city in the blue-chip area

of Lansdowne Valley, just off the Old Tai

Tapu Road, in an idyllic location on Early

Valley Road. Coming home from the noise

and bustle of the city to this tranquillity

will be your treat - so much so you may not

wish to leave at all!

animals but without the hard work of a

lifestyle block. The house is set on just over

1800 sq m of land with a landscaped garden

which will delight a gardener.

With four bedrooms, two bathrooms and

a large living room there is the opportunity

for an extended family to coexist here with

a quite separate wing or perhaps for those

that like to have friends to stay you will find

the layout of the home is perfect for this.

The added benefit of three car garaging will

keep your vehicles safe and secure. There

is ample off-street parking as well for your

visitors.

Surrounded by the Port Hills with all

the amenities these provide for those who

like an active lifestyle and offering those

who prefer perhaps to wine and dine an

abundance of choice of winery and cafes.

Don’t hesitate - view now, it is rare

indeed to find this combination of rural life

without the burden of a lifestyle block.

Ford in New Zealand

by John Stokes

If ever there was a definitive historical book about the iconic Ford

Motor vehicle in New Zealand, this is it!

FORD IN NEW ZEALAND is a magnificently researched history of

the introduction of the Ford brand in New Zealand. An incredible

microscopic view of the beurocracy of the government and the

general public’s `hesitancy’ of the introduction of the `automobile’ in

New Zealand Rich in information, the book describes the assembly

of the first Model T Ford in Canada and the shipment of the vehicles

to New Zealand. Incredibly, New Zealand soon became the second

largest export market for Ford Canada!

The book details the evolution in New Zealand, from the late 19th

century to the `horseless carriage’ of 1904, when the first Ford came

to New Zealand, including never seen before photography of New

Zealand’s first `Ford’ owner - Robert Thompson and his `Fordmobile’.

hip between `the average kiwi’ and Ford, including the first NZ

motor review of the car (1909).

A stunning showcase of tucked-away escape spots all over New

Zealand, and a tribute to a simpler way of life.

Hideaways is a celebration of quintessential New Zealand holiday

escapes: mountain huts, coastal baches, riverside cribs, converted

silos, hunting shacks, and more.

Breathtaking photography and evocative text explore far-flung retreats

from around the country, with a focus on the unique, secluded and

romantic — each offering a change of pace, a chance to disconnect.

A beautiful tribute to getting away from it all.

Sam Stuchbury is the founder and director of creative agency Motion

Sickness. He started the business, now an industry-leading studio,

while at Otago University, where he studied design and marketing.

He has a passion for film, photography, adventure and the outdoors.

Sam lives in Newmarket, Auckland, with his partner Hilary.

Like a Bat Out of Hell

The Larger than Life Story of Meat Loaf

By Mick Wall

“I never wanted to be a big star. I just wanted to be the biggest at

what I do! Powerful, unstoppable, heavy - when that word still meant

something good!” - Meat Loaf, as told to Mick Wall Everything in the

story of Meat Loaf is big. From the place he was born; to the family he

was born into; to the sound he made; and of course the records he

sold. Now, on the eve of the 40th anniversary of Bat Out of Hell, the

album that gave rise to Meat Loaf’s astonishing career, the premiere of

Bat Out Of Hell: The Musical, and the launch of a mammoth two-year

farewell tour, Mick Wall, who has interviewed Meat Loaf on numerous

occasions throughout his career, pulls back the curtains to reveal the

soft-hearted soul behind the larger-than-life character he created for

himself. From a tumultuous childhood with an alcoholic father to the

relentless abusive bullying from classmates and their parents alike,

nobody could have predicted Meat Loaf’s meteoric rise to fame.

Kai and Culture

Food stories from Aotearoa

By Freerange Press – Edited by Emma Johnson

Food tells a story. A story about where it originated, who produced

it, the producer’s values and its journey from ground to plate. We

all share in the experience of food; it connects a diversity of people,

places and ideas. Featuring: Fleur Sullivan, Dr Siouxsie Wiles, Rachel

Taulelei, Monique Fiso, Jonny Schwass, Alex Davies, Giulio Sturla,

Henry Hargreaves and many more.

In this beautiful new release from Freerange Press, complete with

full colour photos and fresh design, chefs, writers, academics and

producers come together to cook up essays, profiles and recipes

that explore Aotearoa’s contemporary food culture and an emerging,

evolving New Zealand food identity.

From mahinga kai and vegetable self-sufficiency to whole-animal

sensibility, Kai and culture is a catalyst for the discussion around the

impact food has on our culture.
