Ban freedom campers

Yacht club

chief wants

same for

Akaroa

• By Sarla Donovan

A PUSH to prohibit freedom

camping within Akaroa

township is gaining momentum

after Queenstown announced a

ban at two hot spots.

Akaroa Yacht Club

commodore

Howard Wilson

wants the

city council

to follow

Queenstown’s

lead after Mayor

Howard

Wilson

Jim Boult

last month

announced a

ban at popular

Lake Hayes and the Shotover

Delta. Dr Wilson said he is

keen to see the same happen in

Akaroa.

He will make a deputation to

the Banks Peninsula Community

Board later this month – and had

originally planned to speak about

the need for better enforcement.

But following Queenstown’s

move, he will now be seeking a

complete ban.

It comes after photographs

were sent to the city council

documenting faeces and toilet

paper at the entry to a local park

and campers spotted washing

dishes and clothing at a public

fountain in the Akaroa recreation

area.

“I’ve never been aware of it

being so bad – not just in Akaroa

but everywhere,” Dr Wilson said.

“When people are flagrantly

abusing the area, it affects

tourism and health. It does have

health and safety issues. I think

they need to look seriously at

banning it.”

Freedom campers are already

prohibited at French Farm,

Wainui and Children’s Bay, but

fully self-contained camper vans

can park at the Akaroa Sports

Complex, the Akaroa Yacht Club

and the Akaroa Lighthouse for a

maximum of two days.

Dr Wilson has support from

Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner,

who said he would like to see the

prohibition extended to the yacht

club and lighthouse sites.

from the editor’s desk

YACHT CLUB commodores aren’t people to

be trifled with.

So when one fires a broadside it pays to

take notice (see page 1).

Akaroa Yacht Club commodore Howard

Wilson wants freedom campers banned

from the village. I suspect he has many supporters.

It’s similar to what Queenstown has implemented; banning

freedom campers from some areas in the tourist haven.

Wilson has had enough of what freedom campers leave behind.

He will make a deputation to the Banks Peninsula Community

Board later this month. He had originally planned to speak about

the need for better enforcement. On the basis of that we’ve canvassed

the board members for their views.

Some have answered; others haven’t responded.

Very weak.

Rubbish bin clearing

• By Sarla Donovan

RUBBISH BINS will be emptied

twice a day in the Sumner

area after the city council was

criticised for failing to keep up

with clearing rubbish bins.

The bins were previously

scheduled for one collection per

day, Sunday-Friday, and two on

Saturday.

However, scorching

temperatures drawing people

to the beach put pressure on

the bins – leading residents to

speak out.

Now an evening collection

has been added to the daily

schedule, which includes

Taylors Mistake.

City council acting head of

parks Brent Smith said there

had been an increase in rubbish

volumes. Its contractor had

collected 20 per cent more

rubbish when compared to the

same period last year.

As well as the extra

collections, the city council was

investigating other changes.

“We’re looking at the number

and style of bins we provide

and we are also looking at

improved signage to inform

and encourage appropriate

behaviour,’’ Mr Smith said.

He said the city council has

had a high number of illegal

rubbish dumping reported.

“We have had 72 requests

for service come in over the

past two months that relate to

rubbish being dumped illegally,

which is an unacceptably high

number,” he said.

“We do our best to keep

our beaches, parks and public

spaces tidy by making sure we

regularly empty the rubbish

bins, but we need the public

to play their part too and take

some civic responsibility,’’ Mr

Smith said.

•A public meeting will be

held at the Sumner Centre:

Matuku Takotako at 7pm

tomorrow to discuss ideas on

how to make Sumner tidier.

Fulton Hogan will lease part of the

rent of $14,500 after getting city

council approval on Thursday. The

money will go to the Allandale

Reserve Management Committee to

be spent on the reserve.

SKATE PARK OPENING SOON

The upgraded Lyttelton skate park is

on track for a February 26 opening.

The $375,000 site upgrade has been

funded primarily by the city council

– with some financial support from

South Port in Bluff. Work began

in November and when complete,

the park will feature a new bowl, a

quarter pipe, ramps, rails and edges,

and a fresh “side-to-side flow.”

HIGH FIRE RISK

The fire risk remains high after

Christchurch sweltered through

the hottest January on record.

NIWA’s monthly climate summary

showed the city recorded a mean

temperature 2.7 deg C more than

the normal. Dry conditions and

a further month of summer heat

are keeping fire authorities on

high alert. A wildfire broke out

on Thursday on the hills above

Cass Bay but ground crews and

helicopters prevented any significant

damage to property.

Take a trip down memory lane

• By Sarla Donovan

TAKE A trip down memory lane

this weekend at the fifth annual

Nostalgia Festival.

The event, held at Ferrymead

Heritage Park on Saturday, was

recently named as one of the

fastest growing and most-loved

festivals in the country by Air

New Zealand, organiser Johnny

Gibson said.

He’s curated an eclectic range

of acts for all ages and flavours

this year, from cult Dunedin

pop-rock group The Chills to Los

Angeles-based musical prodigy

Connan Mockasin.

It retains a local edge with

award-winning singer-songwriter

and Heathcote resident,

Amiria Grenell, appearing with

Amy Grace on the main stage as

The Swan Sisters.

Grenell’s latest, Autumn, was

a finalist for best folk album at

the 2016 New Zealand Music

Awards.

She has toured Australasia

with Fly My Pretties and is in

demand for festivals and events,

both as a solo performer and a

children’s entertainer.

Also on the main stage, Lyttelton-based

musician Richard

Larsen appears with Glass Vaults

– a popular Wellington group

SYNTH-POP: Lyttelton-based Richard Larsen will appear with

The Glass Vaults

producing bright, psychedelic

pop tunes. About 600 people

attended the inaugural Nostalgia

Festival in 2014 – this year, more

than four thousand are expected.

Mr Gibson said they were a

“community-minded” festival.

“We grow organically – we

don’t have a huge marketing

budget and blast it across the

city. An underground festival is

probably the best way to describe

it; it’s unique to the city and

unique to Ferrymead Heritage

Park.”

A second stage has been

added this year showcasing local

emerging artists and old school

vinyl-spinning DJ’s like Pylonz

and Instant Fantasy and the

uber-experienced Simon Kong.

Don’t expect hot dogs and candyfloss

vans; vendors are “real

food enthusiasts” like Sumner’s

Utopia Ice, Gatherings Restaurant

and Lyttelton food delivery

business, Green Dinner Table,

said Mr Gibson.

ALL AGES: Everyone is welcome at Nostalgia Festival.

“We’ve been accredited as a

conscious consumer festival

three years ago so we have been

working with the city council

on a zero waste system as well;

we’ll have reusable cups. We try

to have as little an impact on the

venue as possible.”

As well as music, food and

drink, there are street performers,

hourly theatre shows, steam

train rides and all of the regular

attractions within the park.

The festival is popular with

families and children and to

support those with little ones

Plunket Canterbury are providing

a feeding and nappy change

station as well.

Nostalgia Festival at

Ferrymead Heritage Park

runs from 12.30pm till 8pm

on Saturday. For tickets, go

Summit Rd night ban unlikely

• By Sarla Donovan

Andrew

Turner

NIGHT-TIME restrictions on

Summit Rd are looking unlikely.

Following negative public

feedback, city council staff will

not be recommending that

proposed night-time access

restrictions to Summit Rd and

Worsleys Rd go ahead.

However, a final recommendation

to the city council will

only be made by

the hearings panel

after community

deputations are

heard on February

15.

The time restrictions

would

prohibit vehicles

under 3500kg

from 10pm to 5am,

Thursday to Monday, and on

public holidays and were an attempt

to address concerns about

anti-social road use, safety,

vandalism, fire and littering.

Public consultation resulted in

865 submissions – 545 did not

support the proposal, 221 were

in support, and 99 were in support

but had some concerns.

These included restricting

landscape and astronomy

photographers; penalising

sightseekers; that it could drive

NIGHT VISION: Photographers wanting to take night-time images from the Summit Rd would

be affected by proposed vehicle restrictions.

the problem elsewhere; and

that it would not be adequately

enforced by police.

Favourable comments related

to making the road safer for

cyclists and that Summit Rd was

a safer place for boy racers to be

than in the city where it is more

heavily populated.

A hearings panel will meet

to hear submitters on February

15, then make a final recommendation

to the city council on

whether to adopt the proposal.

Banks Peninsula city councillor

Andrew Turner is on the

panel and said for him, it would

be a question of looking at what

the effects of a ban would be,

namely “whether we’ve got a

problem that would be displaced

into other areas.”

There was no point in putting

rules in place if they weren’t going

to be enforced, he said.

“We can put whatever rules

in place we want, but if they’re

not going to have any practical

effect because of lack of an

enforcement regime . . . that’s

something we need to be aware

of.”

Senior Sergeant Kelly Larsen

told Bay Harbour News last

August there won’t be any extra

police to enforce the proposed

night-time restrictions.

City council manager transport

operations Aaron Haymes

said city council staff would

continue to work with police.

He said speed humps and

gates had been investigated “but

are not considered appropriate

for this particular situation.”

Concern over

changes to bus

stop locations

Fire rages, homes at risk

NEARLY HALF of submitters are

against plans to change pedestrian

crossing and bus stop locations on

Oxford St, Lyttleton.

The city council wants to make

the temporary pedestrian crossing

point at the intersection of Oxford

and Winchester Sts permanent and

replace the two existing bus stops

on Winchester and Oxford Sts,

which are positioned close together,

with a single bus stop outside Lyttelton

School on Oxford St.

New three-minute and two-hour

parking restrictions are also proposed

outside Lyttelton Primary

School to assist the pick-up/drop-off

for parents and daytime visitors to

the school and surrounding area.

The proposals would mean some

on-street parking being removed.

There were 22 submissions with

six respondents in general support,

seven supporting the plan but with

some concerns, and nine respondents

not in support.

Concerns centered on the loss

of the Winchester St bus stop –

which services nearby pensioner

flats – and reduced car parking for

residents and visitors.

A report will be presented to the

Banks Peninsula Community Board

at their meeting on February 12.

Call for freedom campers ban

SCENIC: The scenic views from the Akaroa Lighthouse have made it a popular spot with

freedom campers.

PHOTO: DANIEL GERHARD

•From page 1

“Akaroa town centre and the

residential area around it are not

appropriate places for freedom

camping. A small number of

spaces should be set aside by

the boat park . . . there is also a

camping ground in Akaroa and

there are other camping opportunities

on Banks Peninsula,” said

Mr Turner.

He said when the city council

passed the Freedom Camping

Bylaw in 2015, only sites which

had experienced problems could

have restrictions imposed.

“At the time we put the bylaw

together, you were only allowed

to create a bylaw that addressed

problems under the Freedom

Camping Act and we didn’t have

problems in the residential area

of wider Akaroa at that time. We

did have problems in Akaroa

town centre. I think on a review

of the bylaw it would be easy now

for us to take a more restrictive

view . . . while allowing some

freedom camping at the entrance

by the boat park.”

Any changes to the bylaw

would have to be done as part of

a review, which isn’t set down for

another five years.

However, Cr Turner encouraged

residents to engage with the

city council and the Banks Peninsula

Community Board, which

could request a review.

“It may be that we (the city

council) could make some small

changes, responding to that sort

of a request.”

When Bay Harbour News asked

whether a ban would be looked

at, city council acting head of

regulatory compliance Claire Le

Grice said there were “no plans to

consider banning freedom camping

in Akaroa at this time.”

She said the city council would

maintain a “watching brief” on

activities over the summer period.

Meanwhile, Akaroa Police

Senior Constable Anita Osborne

is encouraging members of the

public to report any sightings

of people relieving themselves

in a public place. In a Facebook

post on the issue, she said even

if police were not in the area, the

job would be recorded and staff

dispatched.

“Take down vehicle registration

details, and if possible get

photos of the person(s). Then if

they do leave the area we can still

follow up so that they don’t keep

doing it wherever they go,” Ms

Osborne said.

Although she had been told informally

about people using the

cemetery, parks and lighthouse

area in Akaroa as a toilet, she said

no one had phoned the police at

the time it was happening.

If more people made complaints

either to police or to the

city council, there would be more

accurate statistics to “back up all

the talk,” she said.

Felix Dawson, Mt Herbert

– “Unless the continued increase

of freedom campers is likely to

stop, then banning them around

the township will probably be

required.

Seafarer funding meeting

• By Sarla Donovan

A MEETING will be held with

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch

to discuss funding for the

seafarers centre – including a

possible levy on visiting ships.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel has

asked Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner and city council staff to

meet with LPC and report back

within two months.

The issue of how the centre is

funded was raised as part of a

Banks Peninsula Community

Board report to the city council

last Thursday.

The chairman

of the

Lyttelton

Seafarers’

Centre charitable

trust

John McLister,

wants to see a

John McLister

port levy on

visiting ships

to fund longer

opening hours and a full-time

welfare officer.

He said the city council has a

moral obligation to provide for

seafarer welfare under the Maritime

Labour Convention.

Currently, LPC contributes

$5000 yearly towards running

costs at the centre, which provides

currency exchange, Wi-Fi,

phone and welfare services from

TEMPORARY: The Lyttelton Seafarers’ Centre needs more

money to be able to expand its services.

7-10pm Monday-Friday but

Mr McLister said that was not

enough.

It should be open 50 hours a

week to meet demand, he said.

He also wants to see a full-time

welfare officer employed who

can go onboard ships.

Ms Dalziel said the city council

could not direct LPC to impose

a levy – however, meeting

with them in the first instance

to talk about the issue would be

a good first step.

“A conversation with LPC

may resolve the situation.”

She said if central government

directed every port in the country

to levy for on-shore welfare

services, “costs would fall where

they lie – with the employers of

the seafarers.”

Central Ward city councillor

Deon Swiggs said the city had

an airport with excellent facilities

for airline staff to use after

long flights.

“We don’t have those same

level of facilities for people that

The city council also passed a

resolution supporting the provision

of access to shore-based

welfare facilities as set out in the

MLC.

Mr McLister said the city council

had shown “wonderful support”

for the work of the centre.

“The good thing is that now

all the parties involved in the

welfare of the seafarers can begin

a constructive conversation

about how we . . . ensure the best

welcome is possible for seafarers

coming to Lyttelton, rather than

just leaving that to the welfare

organisation.”

New Moncks Bay slipway

needs to be repaired

• By Sarla Donovan

AN EXPERIMENTAL new

slipway at the Moncks Bay boat

ramp site hasn’t worked and will

need to be fixed.

It was put in by the city council

prior to Christmas but on Friday

city council manager capital delivery

community Darren Moses

confirmed it wasn’t installed

correctly,

Prior to installation, decaying

concrete was removed from the

original ramp - shortening its

length.

And the hinged extension sits

much higher than the original

ramp beneath, making the dropoff

difficult to launch from.

Christchurch Yacht Club commodore

Richard Ineson said it

was “a bit of a shambles” at the

moment as sailors and jet skiers

were avoiding the slipway and

launching off the beach instead.

This was creating concern

amongst beachgoers.

Mr Ineson and club president

Lyndsey Ebert met with engineer

Paul Ferguson and city council

parks project manager Steven

Gray last week to talk about the

club’s concerns.

The club has its own slipway,

said Mr Ineson, but does use

of rocks and concrete made it

Mr Moses said discussions

were “ongoing with the yacht

solution, which, in turn, will

determine timing of remedial

works and costs.”

Still Me By Jojo Moyes

The third Lou Clark novel by Jojo Moyes, following the Number

One international bestsellers Me Before You and After You Lou Clark

arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she

can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with

Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. She is hurled

into the world of the super-rich Gopniks: Leonard and his much

younger second wife, Agnes, and a never-ending array of household

staff and hangers-on. Lou is determined to get the most out of the

experience and throws herself into her job and New York life within

this privileged world. Before she knows what’s happening, Lou is

mixing in New York high society, where she meets Joshua Ryan, a

man who brings with him a whisper of her past. In Still Me, as Lou

tries to keep the two sides of her world together, she finds herself

carrying secrets - not all her own - that cause a catastrophic change

in her circumstances. And when matters come to a head, she has to

ask herself: Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you reconcile a heart

that lives in two places?

Fire and Fury By Michael Wolff

With extraordinary access to the Trump White House, Michael Wolff tells the

inside story of the most controversial presidency of our time. The first nine

months of Donald Trump’s term were stormy, outrageous, and absolutely

mesmerising. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, bestselling

author Michael Wolff tells the fascinating story of how Trump launched a

tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself. In this explosive book, Wolff

provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among

the revelations: - What President Trump’s staff really thinks of him - What

inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama - Why FBI

director James Comey was really fired - Why chief strategist Steve Bannon

and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t be in the same room -

Who is really directing the Trump administration’s strategy in the wake of

Bannon’s firing - What the secret to communicating with Trump is - What the

Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers. Never

before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported

and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury shows us how and

why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.

Breaking Free By rachel Jeffs

In this searing memoir of survival in the spirit of Stolen Innocence, the

daughter of the self-proclaimed Prophet of the FLDS Church takes you

deep inside the secretive, polygamist and fundamentalist Mormon cult

run by her family and recounts her escape. Born into the Fundamentalist

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Rachel Jeffs was raised in a

strict patriarchal culture defined by subordinate sister wives and men they

must obey. No one in this radical splinter sect of the Mormon Church was

more powerful or terrifying than its leader Warren Jeffs--Rachel’s father. In

2006 the FBI placed him on its Ten Most Wanted List. Rachel describes her

harrowing life with Warren Jeffs, and the years of physical and emotional

abuse she suffered. Sexually assaulted, compelled into an arranged

polygamous marriage, locked away in ‘houses of hiding’, as punishment

for perceived transgressions, and physically separated from her children,

Rachel eventually found the courage to leave the church in 2015. A

shocking and mesmerising memoir of faith, abuse, courage and freedom,

this is an expose of religious extremism and a beacon of hope for anyone

overcoming obstacles or trauma in their own lives.

Life of a Bank Peninsula police officer

Fire rages, homes at risk

•From page 11

I went to the early stages of the

recruitment process thinking

it probably wouldn’t be for me.

because I was quite a private, shy

sort of person. But I thoroughly

enjoyed it. When I got sent out

on experience in patrol cars – I

loved it. I was lucky enough that

that year they were recruiting for

Christchurch and they weren’t

for Rotorua so we as a family all

moved down to Christchurch.

Where did you train?

I went to the Royal New Zealand

Police College in Wellington

for six months while my family

stayed in Rotorua, and once I

finished my training, we all

moved south. Before that, I had a

community work job and I was a

psychiatric nurse prior to that.

Could you tell me a bit about

your family?

My children are now all in

their 20s. I’ve got a 29-year-old

daughter and 26-year-old twin

boys. One of the boys was interested

in police work but he’s off

doing other things at the moment

so I’m not sure if he’ll come back

to it. My boys are in Christchurch

and my daughter is an artist and

she lives over here as well. She

does all sorts: Painting, pen, ink.

It’s good to have them all living

close by.

LIFE-CHANGING: Senior Constable Anita Osborne during her

deployment in the Solomon Islands in 2011.

Do you do shift work?

We have rostered day and

evening shifts, but then we’re

on call for two-thirds of the

time. So this week, I’m in an

eight-day roster and five nights

of that are on call which is a real

long haul. But I have a shared

property with my family – my

parents and my daughter – so

they pick up the slack for me.

They’re great. I’ve got dogs and

I don’t have to worry about all

that, they take care of things

when I’m called out for extended

hours. I’ve got border collies

and my son’s chocolate labrador

at the moment. He’s in a house

in Christchurch which doesn’t

allow dogs. I got my collie about

10 years ago and then the other

son got a border collie that was

an ex-farm dog, so I’ve ended up

with his one as well. I’m like the

home for adopted dogs from the

children – I hear that’s common.

What’s the toughest part of

your job?

Dealing with confrontation

and angry people. And going

from a difficult, stressful job

where someone died and then

having to deal with another job

where the person who’s rocked

up to the station door has no idea

what you’ve just been dealing

with and what they’ve come to

complain about is a big deal for

them. So you’re trying to still

meet their needs even if it seems

like a trivial matter compared

to what you’ve just been dealing

with. That’s the really, really hard

stuff – you’re on the phone or in

person with someone who’s just

had this life-changing thing happen

and someone else comes in

to complain that their neighbour

has cut a branch off their tree.

What do you get up to in your

down-time?

Tramping, kayaking, paddleboarding,

biking. I do a trip to

Australia each year with Cycle

Queensland, which is a 10-day

cycle trip. It’s about 600km of

biking and all the logistics are

done – your stuff gets taken by

truck each day, you just get on

your bike and go. I’ve done it

about six times; it’s a really good

trip. You book in, you pay for it,

you book your flight, you turn up

and you bike, and at the end of

the day there’s a tent with meals

and sometimes a band playing.

You’ve been a police officer for

nearly 21 years. How has the job

changed you?

Majorly. Like I said, I was a

pretty introverted person before.

I’ve had to really work on my

confidence and the job helps you

get a wide experience. I was in

the negotiators squad for a while,

I was a detective for 12 years

and I did a deployment to the

Solomon Islands for six months.

Every time I’ve tackled a new

challenge I can see that I changed

a lot. The Solomon Islands

particularly was massive – going

away from your family, being in

such a different country. I think

it was the second day I was there

they had a riot and there were

rocks flying everywhere. It was

very different to New Zealand.

It taught me that when you have

limited resources people-wise,

you have to be creative in how to

resolve things. I’ve got no plans

to change – I’m really enjoying

community policing.

Cathryn Lucy – This is

absolutely disgusting. If you

scum want to put in even half the

effort members of the club do to

maintain the yacht club facilities,

ensure we have safe and fun

racing, and provide an amazing

community for yachties, you’d

The public are lucky enough to

How dare you be obnoxious to

safety of sailors, and get in the

way of the operation of the club.

Well handled, Richard and Jo. I

always have the utmost respect

for you guys, and I wish others

would too. I have never heard of

this ever being an issue before.

This is so disappointing.

Roxanne Oliver - I saw how

many the other weekend it was

so very busy. I didn’t believe my

eyes so this does not surprise me.

Jet skis there as well.

Philip Nelson – Very poor

behaviour, but it does go to show

there is a need for more councilowned

pontoons and jetties that

the public can access.

Janice Belgrave – I don’t

think obnoxious behaviour is on,

but do agree that it has exposed

a need for an alternative to

swimming at the beach.

The beach itself is never

without danger either, and

whenever people are around

water anywhere, there is a

possible potential for incidents.

In years gone by, this body of

water has not been that inviting

for swimming, due to pollution,

but now that that issue seems to

have been somewhat resolved,

perhaps there could be a section

marked off with buoys or

wavebreaker ropes such as pool

lane markers, to allow for the

harmonious use by swimmers

and sailors alike?

John Goodrich – I was

alarmed to see the ‘Abusive teens

out of control’ headline in the

Bay Harbour News (January 31).

While I have some sympathy

courtesy, smiles and groups of

young people simply enjoying

themselves.

Our generation bemoans the

fact that children and young

people are no longer doing all the

physical and outdoor things that

we did at their age, and are more

interested in social media, smartphones

and video games.

Here we have groups of them

doing exactly what we would

be able to criticise. This is not the

only occasion I’ve come across

this. I recently witnessed a couple

on the bus getting very annoyed

with a small group of young

people for doing nothing more

that being noisy on their way to

spending time on the beach.

In the eyes of many it seems

that the younger generation can’t

water. When left uncontrolled,

its dense bushy growth forms

massive, tall, impenetrable

stands that will out compete our

native species. Its ability to form

monocultures changes a wetland

and marginal habitats and

food sources for many fish and

bird species,” said Mr Sullivan.

Left uncontrolled, purple

loosestrife can form monocultures

causing blockages and

flooding.

“We don’t want this for our

region’s wetlands and watercourses,”

Mr Sullivan said.

Purple loosestrife produces

millions of long-lived, highly viable

seeds from an early age. It

can tolerate hot or cold conditions,

and low to high nutrient

levels in the water.

Its seed is spread by the movement

of water, contaminated

machinery and soil.

Now is the optimum time to

identify if you have purple loosestrife

on your property.

What to look out for:

•A tall green perennial herb

that grows anywhere between 1

and 3m tall in summer.

•It will have a taproot with

many branched stems that feel

square shaped when you rub

them between your thumb and

finger.

•Look for narrow leaves that

are in pairs and alternate up the

stem.

•During the summer months,

it will have showy, densely hairy

flower head spikes.

•Later in the season you may

see blackish seed capsules, about

3mm long.

•There are no similar species

that grow this tall.

What to do:

•Take a photo of the suspected

plant(s) and email it, along with

the location of the sighting to

Gemma Livingstone at gemma.

livingstone@ecan.govt.nz

•Alternatively, you can call

0800 EC INFO and leave your

name, contact number, and the

location of the suspected sighting.

Your Local Views

The things we spend our rates on

Following

recent

publicity

around

rubbish bin

collection in

the Bays area,

Port Hills MP

Ruth Dyson

takes a moment to reflect

on how our rates are spent

We are very fortunate, in

my view, to have had for many

years a city council that believes

in ensuring that more than

just potholes and rubbish are

attended to as its job – although

in recent times those in the

beach suburbs know very well

that it wasn’t doing the rubbish

job quite as well as was needed.

But the things I am talking

about are the festivals, the events,

the fun things that are so often

sponsored by the city council

(sometimes in partnership) that

are then free or very reasonably

priced for people to enjoy.

I always enjoy the Ingham’s

Lazy Sundays which is an

example of that partnership –

what is better than sitting in

the Botanical Gardens on a fine

Sunday afternoon listening to

great music and surrounded by

people who are doing the same –

and it’s free.

And likewise the buskers are

just a delight and even though

you should make a financial

contribution, for the street gigs

you can just enjoy it if you don’t

have any money.

The final figures for the

buskers hasn’t been publicised

yet so it’s not known if this year

was another loss or if it made

POPULAR: The World

Buskers Festival is one of the

events supported by the city

council.

a profit. Certainly the better

weather brought out the crowds

compared to last year.

As well as the actual

shows that I went to, I really

enjoyed sitting and watching

the audience watching the

performers.

I went to one event in Albion

Square in Lyttelton on a

beautiful Saturday afternoon.

It was packed with a very agediverse

crowd. And people were

laughing and clapping and

talking with one another.

I know that we pay our rates

so that our city council provides

services – water, sewerage, roads,

footpaths, rubbish collections

etcetera. But I am delighted that

our city council also invests a

small amount of our rates and

gets a really big return – fun and

happiness for our residents. I

think we deserve it!

Blitz on sea lavender

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Sarla Donovan

Yvette

Couch-Lewis

A NEW plan to restore the

ecological and cultural

health of Lyttelton

Harbour is being

launched next month.

The Whaka Ora

Healthy Harbour plan

arose after community

consultation on the Lyttelton

Port Recovery

Plan showed a need for

a co-ordinated approach

to address water quality

and environmental problems in

the area.

Soil erosion and sediment

run-off, storm and wastewater

discharge, and vessel and port operation

contaminants were among

a range of issues identified.

Key organisations within the

Lyttelton catchment – the city

council, Environment Canterbury,

Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu, Te

Hapu o Ngati Wheke and Lyttelton

Port Company – have worked

on the plan for more than a year.

A governance group made up

of a representative from each

group will oversee annual project

plans and budgets, consider

future funding streams and set

up a working group to deliver

programmes.

It will include LPC chief executive

Peter Davie, TRONT representative

Yvette Couch-Lewis

(chairwoman), ECan councillor

Elizabeth Cunningham,

and Te Hapu o Ngati

Wheke representative

Cara Edwards.

The organisations

involved have spent

$600,000 over a threeyear

period ending in

2018 to develop the plan

and for its initial implementation.

Funding will come

through the organisations’

existing work programmes.

However, according to the plan,

“implementation . . . will require

additional

resourcing to implement the priority

and short-term projects.”

The plan will be reviewed

three-yearly with the first review

in 2021.

Whaka Ora Healthy Harbour

management plan will be

launched at Rapaki Marae on

March 7.

There will also be a community

launch with beach clean ups and

barbecues around Lyttelton, Governors

Bay and Diamond Harbour

on March 9 from 4.30pm.

•The draft plan can be

viewed online at http://

healthyharbour.org.nz/

to eradicate pest

A BLITZ attack on sea lavender

– a pest plant that strangles

native species – has brought its

eradication one step closer.

City council ecologist Kristina

Macdonald led 12 members

of the city council’s parks team

and a Forest and Bird volunteer

on a search and destroy mission

targeting sea lavender plants

near the lower Heathcote River

last week.

The Heathcote River was the

first site in New Zealand where

the pest plant was found and

the city council is looking at

eradicating it within the next 10

years.

Sea lavender, which has deep

tap roots, spreads to form a

dense mat in saltmarsh areas. It

crowds out existing native plant

species preventing them from

establishing.

“There used to be thousands

of plants here but now that we

are down to lower numbers we

think eradication might truly be

possible,” Ms Macdonald says.

About 650 plants were dug

out during last week’s project in

the lower Heathcote River area,

the only site in Christchurch

PEST PLANT: City council ecologist Kristina Macdonald helps

dig out sea lavender plants near the lower Heathcote River.

city where it has been found.

The next closest affected site is

in Akaroa which the Department

of Conservation controls.

“It’s been there for a while

and both staff and volunteers

have been controlling it for over

10 years. We thought we’d get

a group together and do a grid

search and remove what we

could find,” Ms Macdonald said

“It was a very successful effort.”

Residents living in the

Lower Heathcote area should

check their gardens for this

“wee beastie” which will be in

flower for the next couple of

weeks, she said.

“If they find any plants they

should dig them out making

sure they get the roots and put

them into the city council red

rubbish bins.”

Forest and Bird own and look

after the Calder Green reserve

on the Lower Heathcote where

sea lavender was first found in

the 1980s.

Summer surf ‘keeps on giving’

Aaron's Surf Report

SPORTS

THE EPIC summer just keeps

on giving at the moment.

Consistent warm days, light

winds and 20 deg C plus water

temperatures have meant for

perfect surf conditions.

Swell-wise we’ve been alternating

weeks with one flat week followed

by one good week of swell

so there have been plenty of fun

waves around.

This week the tropical wave

machine kicks into gear with a

big low dropping down from the

Coral Sea.

A huge, but short lived swell

charged through on Thursday

producing some great waves but

the wind unfortunately was a bit

too strong for epic conditions.

We should see plenty of east

and north-easterly swells from

the tropics this month as this is

traditionally our best season for

surf.

Point Surf team held the annual

PST trophy over the weekend.

little two-foot waves on Saturday

at Stoke St and the adults battled

three-foot-plus conditions at

Taylors on the Sunday. Rodney

Somogyvari won the open with

Aaron Stanley-Joblin second. In

the cadets, Jordan Sparrow won

the boys and Sienna O’Shaunesy

won the girls. Jack Tyro won the

younger boys age group.

There’s been a lot happening

on the contest scene with local

surfers achieving some great

results around the country.

The highlights include Harrison

Whiteside chasing the New

Zealand surf series all last year,

finishing the 2017 national series

with a second on the under-20

circuit and a third in the open

men’s.

Harrison has been the South

Island’s quiet achiever recently

and is consistently one of New

Zealand’s top surfers competing

against New Zealand’s best.

Hugh Ritchie from Exit Surf

travelled all the way to Hainan

Island in China for the ISA world

longboarding champs as part of

a four person New Zealand team.

Hugh was disappointed in his

results with small inconsistent

surf making things difficult. He

placed 31st which is still pretty

good on a world stage.

Donna and Ava Henderson

had great results at the Health

2000 national champs in Gisborne,

both winning national titles

in the over 40 and under-14.

Lucy Te Moananui was also

there, winning the over 30s title

and placing third in the SUP but

just missing out on second and

the New Zealand SUP team by

half a point. Estella Hungerford

was second in the longboard and

fourth in the under-16s.

Jordan Sparrow has been

chasing the South Island groms

series and posted his first win in

great waves at Westport. Jordan

smashed two good waves to win

the under-18 boys final against a

tough field. Ava Henderson won

both the under-14 and under-16

girls in Westport and under-14s

in Dunedin. Jack Tyro won the

under-12 boys in Westport.

Holly Campbell, Poppy Entwisle,

Olive Entwisle, Amelie Wink

and Ruby Armstrong have all

been getting great results too.

Events coming up include the

Malfunction Longboard event

at New Brighton on February

17-18 and the Cape Classic in

Westport, 24-25 February.

The Saboteur: The Aristocrat

Who Became France’s Most

Daring Anti-Nazi Commando

by Paul Kix

In the tradition of ‘Agent Zigzag’ comes a breathtaking

biography of WWII’s ‘Scarlet Pimpernel’ as fast-paced

and emotionally intuitive as the best spy thrillers. This

celebrates unsung hero Robert de La Rochefoucauld, an aristocrat turned

anti-Nazi saboteur, and his exploits as a British Special Operations Executivetrained

resistant. A scion of one of the oldest families in France, Robert de

La Rochefoucauld was raised in a magnificent chateau and educated in

Europe’s finest schools. When the Nazis invaded and imprisoned his father,

La Rochefoucauld escaped to England and was trained in the dark arts

of anarchy and combat – cracking safes, planting bombs and killing with

his bare hands – by a collection of SOE spies. With his newfound skills,

La Rochefoucauld returned to France and organized Resistance cells, blew

up fortified compounds and munitions factories, interfered with Germany’s

wartime missions and executed Nazi officers. Caught by the Germans, La

Rochefoucauld withstood months of torture and escaped his own death

sentence, not once but twice.

The 1,000-Year-Old Boy

by Ross Welford

The astonishing, beautiful new story for all readers of 10 and over from

the bestselling and Costa-shortlisted author of TIME TRAVELLING WITH A

HAMSTER.

‘A wonderful story’ Kiran Millwood Hargrave There are stories about people

who want to live forever. This is not one of those stories. This is a story

about someone who wants to stop… Alfie Monk is like any other nearly

teenage boy – except he’s 1,000 years old and can remember the last

Viking invasion of England.

Obviously no one believes him. So when everything Alfie knows and loves

is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie

embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance, and a different way to

live… which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.

REAL ESTATE

Love the location, build the dream - “As-Is, Where-Is”

37 Horotane Valley Rd, Heathcote

Auction: 22 February 2018, unless sold prior

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 2 car-garage | Listing ID: FM5361

A myriad of possibilities fill the mind

with what could be achieved at this 4 acre

Horotane Valley property which is being

sold on an ‘as is, where is’ basis.

With the Port Hills as its backdrop and

views that stretch across to the city, this

property is perfectly positioned to enjoy

the vistas and micro-climate that this area

is so renowned for. The surrounds offer a

genuine sense of seclusion and tranquility

despite it being just a five-minute drive

from central Ferrymead and approx. 15

minutes from the central city.

The generous four-bedroom, threebathroom

family character home has a

verandah and a great outlook with lovely

space surrounding the home. However, the

spacious interior has visibly felt the effects

of the city’s seismic activity and is now a

little worse for wear, which provides the

new buyer with a superb opportunity to

either breathe new life into the home, or

perhaps start from scratch.

One particularly noteworthy feature

of this property is the converted double

garage which now hosts a single studio

with a bathroom, and it is a space that

could easily be used as accommodation

once any repairs have commenced on the

home itself.

The sprawling four acres of semi-rural

land has great biodiversity and is non-sub

dividable with established gardens, fruit

trees, the sweet sound of birdsong and very

usable flat lawn.

It hosts numerous outbuildings which

include a tunnel house, shade house, sleep

out, horse stables, double garage with

separate workshop, two storage units, a

railway carriage and three sheds.

Buyers who have dreamt of creating a

life in a convenient countryside setting

will gravitate towards this property which

presents the promise of a project and

exciting potential.

Having made countless memories at this

property for the past 25 years, the time

has arrived to downsize, and the vendors

are determined to achieve a result. Early

inspection is recommended.

Auction date Thursday 22 Feb 12:00 p.m.

(Grenadier House, 98 Moorhouse Ave)

Unless Sold Prior

Open Home Dates: Wednesday and

Saturday 3.00pm – 4.00pm until auction

day. See you at one of the Open Days, or for

a private viewing or for more information
