SKILL: Artist Julia Holden (pictured above at last year’s Lyttelton: Redux exhibition)

has made the first round of judging at an international portrait award with her painting,

Caroline (right).

First round success for artist

in prestigious competition

• By Sarla Donovan

WHEN REDCLIFFS artist

Julia Holden entered the BP

Portrait Award at the National

Portrait Gallery, London,

she didn’t expect to get any

further.

“I was in the mode of putting

work in to various things

at the time and I thought:

‘Well I’ll just enter and see

what happens.’ And it was to

my very great surprise that

it got accepted for the first

round.”

Anyone from around

the world can enter the prestigious

competition – close

to 3000 did so this year and

it was “really thrilling” to be

selected from that group, said

Holden.

from the editor’s desk

YOU DON’T know until you try, and you

can’t win a prize if you don’t enter.

That pretty much sums up our front page

article today on Julia Holden, the Redcliffs

artist who has made it through to the next

round of a fairly prestigious competition in

no less a place than London.

Holden gained a lot of attention for her portraits of Lyttelton

people which featured in an exhibition at Canterbury Museum

last year. When she put her entry into the London competition

she didn’t expect to get any further, but of course she has.

Well done Julia.

On a sad note, health reasons have ended Christine Wilson’s

tenure on the Banks Peninsula Community Board (see page 1).

We wish Christine all of the best.

Old school classroom to stay

Community

building will be

part of new

Redcliffs park

• By Sarla Donovan

A LARGE, modern classroom

at the former Redcliffs School

site will be retained for

community use.

But heritage buildings,

including the historic 1921 hall

and a 1940s open air classroom

and dental clinic, are set to go.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

decided last week to keep a

building in the southern corner

of the site.

It is relatively modern and

undamaged and being located

on the southern boundary

means it would not interfere

with the two new playing fields

to be constructed.

The building would replace

those in the current Redcliffs

Park.

While the future use of the

old school site has not been determined,

Heathcote Ward city

councillor Sara Templeton said

once management of the site is

transferred to the city council,

“we will be able to work with

the community more on the

use of the block.”

A decision on changing the

zoning of Redcliffs Park from

a park to a school is expected

from Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister Megan

Woods soon. The board also

decided to keep the car park,

children’s playground, sand

pit, shade sails, decking, the

garden adjacent to the car park

and trees, in-built furniture,

playground pathway, and

boundary fencing. These are all

considered by the city council

to be in “workable” locations

for the new park layout.

All other assets will be

demolished by the Ministry

of Education before the city

council establishes the two new

public sports fields, which will

replace those set to be lost at the

current Redcliffs Park.

The city council will develop

a landscape plan for the site later

this year in consultation with

31-YEAR-OLD IN COURT

A 31-year-old man charged with

three night-time aggravated

robberies in Scarborough, Mt

Pleasant and Redcliffs last year is set

to appear in court today. The man

was arrested a week after the alleged

break-in on October 24 of Emely

board chair

earns respect

•From page 1

There was disappointment,

“but at the same time, thanks

and recognition and respect for

all the work that she has done

both on the community board

and in the wider community.”

Nominations are now open for

a position on the

board and a byelection

will be

held on May 16.

An election

will only be held

if there is more

Andrew

Turner

than one candidate,

however.

“I’m hoping

there will be interest – people

generally have stood because

they have a passion for the community

and want to be a leader

in the community,” said Cr

Turner.

He said the board planned

to have an informal discussion

about leadership roles at

their meeting in Akaroa on

Monday.

They would need to talk about

who was interested in the role of

chairperson and whether to vote

for a new chair before or after

any by-election, he said.

Work on landmark under way

• By Sarla Donovan

A LANDMARK apartment

building opposite Sumner beach

will be fully repaired by June.

The three-storey 1990s

beachside property was

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

It is next door to the former

Cave Rock apartments, built in

1998.

Both complexes were designed

at the same time by the late

Peter Beaven, but the Cave Rock

apartments were demolished in

2012.

Body corporate chairman

Damon Rutherford said the

building at 20 Esplanade was

built on a rock foundation,

and “that’s why it’s still

standing.”

EQC and insurers paid

out a multi-million dollar

settlement, said Mr Rutherford

and it was now being

completely refurbished, with

a new roof, new windows and

other work.

“It will look like a brand new

modern building.”

Repairs started about six

months ago with the building

being raised as it had sunk into

the ground.

REPAIRS: The building at

20 Esplanade has been

stripped. Below – How it

looked prior to repair work.

The repair work was likely to

be finished by June.

There are six apartments –

three on the ground floor,

two on the middle and one on

top.

remain except for the top floor

apartment, which has since been

Rubbish less of a problem

• By Sarla Donovan

THE DELUGE of rubbish

in Sumner has eased since

school holidays ended.

The Sumner Community

Residents’ Association met

with city council staff and

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board

member Darrell Latham

on Thursday to discuss

maintenance of Sumner’s

public spaces, including

concerns around frequency

of rubbish bins being emptied

in Sumner and Taylors

Mistake.

After being emptied twice

a day following publicity

around overflowing bins,

the city council has returned

to once a day and twice on

weekends, plus an additional

emptying at night.

City council head of

parks Brent Smith said the

rationalisation of contracts

for the removal of rubbish

in Sumner was still being

considered, and the installation

of larger bins and smart

bins was under review.

Currently Sumner has

rubbish contracts operated

by different contractors for

the beach (these come under

the parks contract) and

for the village (these come

under transport).

BROOKHAVEN RETIREMENT VILLAGE

• We have a villa available

• Large living with two double bedrooms

and internal access garage.

TIDY: Empty rubbish bins are now the norm in

Sumner.

• We will offer you the best quality brands and

“We await further

information about these

contracts and if, how and

when they will be rationalised.

We are wanting to

develop a strategy towards

a suburb-wide solution not

just a beach solution,” said

Mr Smith.

The meeting also

discussed having several

wheelie bins strapped together

at key points on the

Esplanade, to cope with

heavy usage periods.

Dr Latham, who organised

and chaired the meeting,

said it had been very

positive.

“Issues were addressed

with a view to putting into

place short-term actions

to address current rubbish

problems. As well, longer

term planning is being

considered so that going

forward the Sumner community

and visitors are not

placed in a situation where

we have a repeat of the

recent problems.”

There will be a follow-up

meeting in six months time

to review progress.

Brave by rose McGowan

“My life, as you will read, has taken me from one cult to another. BRAVE is the story

of how I fought my way out of these cults and reclaimed my life. I want to help you

do the same.” - Rose McGowan. A revealing memoir and empowering manifesto -

A voice for generations Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in

another, more visible cult: Hollywood. In a strange world where she was continually

on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure

and sexualisation. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had

done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal

life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged

with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood

machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and

identity and marketing them for profit. Hollywood expected Rose to be silent and

cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity

and voice. She re-emerged unscripted, courageous, victorious, angry, smart,

fierce, unapologetic, controversial, and real as. BRAVE is her raw, honest, and

poignant memoir/manifesto-a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the

rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who

is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the

concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic

misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be BRAVE.

this incredible ecosystem, until something wakes us up.

The good news is that healing and maintaining a healthy

gut is not difficult or time consuming. This simple two-day

maintenance plan is supported by deliciously nourishing

recipes, handy tips and information to enable you to enjoy the

countless benefits of a happy, healthy gut, for life.

The Cage by Lloyd Jones

A powerful allegorical tale about humanity and dignity and

the ease with which we can justify brutality. Two mysterious

strangers turn up at a hotel in a small country town. Where

have they come from? Who are they? What catastrophe

are they fleeing? The townspeople want answers, but the

strangers are unable to speak of their trauma. Before long,

wary hospitality shifts to suspicion and fear, and the care of

the men slides into appalling cruelty. Lloyd Jones’s fable-like

novel The Cage is a profound and unsettling novel.

TWENTY-FOUR cabbage

trees have been found dead

along the Christchurch Coastal

Pathway.

While out walking on Monday

morning, Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

member Tim Lindley noticed

a clump of dead trees opposite

the Mt Pleasant Community

Centre.

And they weren’t the only ones.

Dr Lindley proceeded to count

24 in a row, stretching down the

causeway towards the Beachville

Rd corner.

Those closest to and those on

Beachville Rd itself were not affected.

It was possible they had got a

disease, said Dr Lindley.

But the other possibility was

that some “cabbage tree-hater”

had sprayed them.

“The rest of the cabbage trees

further along are perfectly

healthy. It just seems very unusual

because they’re in clumps of

three with big gaps so you might

get a bug that infests one clump

but for 24 in a row all to be dead

is suspicious.”

He has contacted city council

arborists and asked them to have

a look.

“It’s case-not-proven yet but it

looks awfully worrisome.”

Dead cabbage trees ‘suspicious’

The Coastal Pathway Group

had raised funds to pay for the

planting.

Dr Lindley, who is also a member

of the group, said they would

wait to hear from the arborist

before deciding whether to lay a

complaint with police.

Cabbage trees not universally popular

•In January last year, three cabbage trees were cut and

left to die on the Main Rd causeway. Others were found

ripped out and thrown onto nearby rocks.

•In July last year, a man was spotted removing cabbage

trees from Charlesworth Reserve.

•City council plans to plant cabbage trees near the

Bridge St bridge in Brighton were given the thumbs down

by the residents’ associations the same month – they

requested pohutukawa trees instead.

•In 2015 several cabbage trees were set alight on the

corner of New Brighton and Palmers Rds.

campers in general. Email sarla.donovan@starmedia.kiwi

Call for council to act on freedom campers

Akaroa

Yacht Club

commodore

Howard

Wilson has

prepared a

submission

on the issue

of freedom

camping in

Akaroa. It will be delivered

by deputation at a Banks

Peninsula Community

Board meeting on Monday.

A copy of his submission is

printed here

This deputation follows

and updates my previous

submission to the board

on October 30, 2017. There

will be a record of this on

file. My main emphasis was

on the health and safety of

allowing freedom camping

along the foreshore from the

main wharf to Greens Point

and the effects on Akaroa

Yacht Club (incorporating

the Akaroa Sailing Club.) The

following two points were

my summary of the issue as

I saw it at that time:

Overall it was felt that the area

outside the AYC and lighthouse

is unsuitable for camper vans,

and it was also of concern that

other residential streets in

Akaroa are open for campervans

for a two-night period. The vans

which appear to be the main

culprits are the small, so-called

fully self-contained, vans which

only have a small portable toilet

under the bed and no facilities

for storing rubbish or running

water. Vans often park opposite

the AYC in the Garden of Tane

where toilet paper is frequently

found.

Akaroa does not wish to discourage

tourism. At the moment

there are two areas in Akaroa

where campervans are invited

to park for up to two nights, the

recreation ground parking area

and parking spaces opposite the

Akaroa Area School Library.

However, they are also permitted

to park in all residential streets

east of the main street for up to

two nights. Overnight parking

areas must be safe and create the

least disruption to residents and

the enjoyment of Akaroa by residents

and visitors. By advertising

the many areas within Akaroa

that campervans can park has

the potential to affect the quality

of life, health and safety of

residents and visitors to Akaroa.

I urged the city council to review

the freedom camping by-law, as

promised, and at the very least

prohibit freedom camping along

the whole of the Akaroa foreshore,

to include the main wharf

all the way to Greens Point.

Since my previous submission,

we have had a busy summer in

Akaroa and our worst fears have,

as predicted, become a reality.

Akaroa has been subject to

abuse from freedom campervan

owners and hirers. Our streets,

recreation areas and attractions

have been littered with rubbish,

sanitary items, urine and faeces.

This, as evidenced by the many

photos and emails that have ben

submitted to the city council, is

a daily occurrence. The Freedom

Camping Bylaw 2015 has been

flouted on numerous occasions.

The number of vans entering

Akaroa has escalated. We know

that the numbers have risen

four-fold nationally.

Current policing of the by-law

is inadequate. I acknowledge that

some policing has taken place

and some infringement notices

have been issued. However, this

is not having any effect whatsoever.

At the very least a local person

should be trained as an enforcement

officer and police the

Akaroa area on a 24-hour basis.

It is futile to expect any positive

effect when the small number

of enforcement officers (is it still

two?) are based in Christchurch

and have to police the whole of

the city council area.

I am encouraged that latterly

Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner

has taken a keen interest. I am

also encouraged that the Tourism

Minister, Kelvin Davis, has

finally realised New Zealand

has a problem and has invited

22 mayors to a meeting in early

March to discuss solutions to

issues around freedom camping.

One hopes that this will result

in a meaningful solution to the

escalating problem. However,

the wheels of power turn ever

so slowly, so we will not see any

change to the Freedom Camping

Act until at least next summer.

In the meantime, the city council

has to act with urgency. To do

nothing is no longer an option.

Before I offer my solution, I

will reiterate the social, economic,

health and safety concerns

surrounding open urination and

defaecation (OUD):

•The smell is obnoxious and

contributes to odour pollution.

•OUD discourages tourism

in areas where the habit is performed

and has a negative effect

on the economy.

•Businesses in areas of OUD

will suffer loss of customers.

•The faeces, urine and toilet

paper destroys the aesthetics of

the area.

•People with a urinary tract

infection or gastroenteritis

will encourage spread of the

disease and infect others. This

is particularly relevant to small

children, who play in the areas

where urination and defecation

has taken place.

•OUD creates a fertile breeding

place for bacteria, viruses

and parasites and again encourages

spread of disease. Hot

temperatures will increase the

spread further, e.g. current summer

weather in Akaroa.

•The urea content of faeces

and urine encourages insects,

especially flies, which pick up

particles of faeces and urine and

act as a potent vector of disease.

•Diseases spread by OUD are

often waterborne diseases and

OUD will contribute to pollution

of our lakes, waterways and sea,

especially when rain washes

urine and faces into our streams

and rivers. OUD in the third

world is responsible for millions

of deaths annually, especially in

young children; as they are apt

to crawl on the ground, walk

barefoot and put things into

their mouths.

We need to protect the uniqueness

of Akaroa and the bays for

residents as well as those who

enjoy and respect the area. We

do not want Akaroa to become

a third world town littered with

toilet paper, excrement and rubbish.

The predicament in Akaroa is

mirrored by other areas in New

Zealand. Queenstown Lakes

District Council has set the

precedent of banning freedom

camping in areas that have been

abused by freedom campers.

They are acting with expediency

and I applaud the fact that elected

representatives have listened

and responded to ratepayer’s

valid concerns.

It is now time for the city

council to step up and consider

a ban on freedom camping from

those areas of Akaroa and bays,

which has been subject to this

abuse over the summer months.

I cannot emphasise enough the

health and safety consequences

of doing nothing.

If the city council is able to

police and monitor the by-law

adequately, it may consider offering

an area within Akaroa

where freedom campers may stay

for a up to a two-night period. I

would suggest, in line with the

amendment to the New Zealand

standard for self-contained

vehicles, which came into effect

on January 31, that campervans

be inspected by a warden to

insure they are adequately self

contained, i.e. the toilet is fully

accessible when the bed is made

up and in place, as a prerequisite

of spending the night in a designated

two-night area. There is no

need for a warden to enter into

the van since it can be checked

by simply opening the side and

back doors for a visual inspection.

I urge the board to treat this

matter with utmost seriousness

and take immediate steps to

protect the health and safety of

visitors and residents from the

appalling behaviours of those

freedom campers that have a

blatant disregard for the unique

beauty of Akaroa.

Otherwise, the only realistic

step is to totally ban freedom

camping from Akaroa and bays.

Lifeguards awarded after tough day

Fire rages, homes at risk

THE TAYLORS Mistake Surf

Life Saving Club has won the

national rescue of the month

award for the performance of its

lifeguards last month.

The award recognises operational

excellence by surf

lifeguards around New Zealand.

The winners receive a $500

BP gift card and a citation, and

become finalists in the BP rescue

of the year award.

On Thursday, January 18,

Taylors Mistake beach was heavily

populated with people on

holiday.

The temperature was hot and

the surf was large with rips and

currents moving through.

The beach was patrolled by

four paid regional lifeguards and

there were various off-duty lifeguards

and rookies on the beach.

Lifeguards had already moved

the flags numerous times due to

the conditions and the number

of swimmers in the water.

As the tide turned shortly after

1pm, a flash rip was created, taking

two groups of swimmers on

the western side of the flags out

beyond their depth.

Four people were in immediate

danger with another group

struggling to return to shallow

water. Overall, it appeared that

about 12-17 swimmers were in

RESCUERS: Craig Jamieson, Zach Goldsmith, Mackenzie Ellis and Will Jamieson were among

the lifeguards on duty on January 18:

need of assistance.

A lone swimmer, doing water

yoga at the same time, had drifted

400m offshore and required

board rescue and pick up by an

inflatable rescue boat.

All four regional lifeguards

entered the water as the patrol

captain dropped the flags and

closed the swimming area, while

the off-duty lifeguards provided

assistance.

Two boards, 11 rescue tubes

and an IRB were in the water at

the time.

The IRB pick ups were challenging

due to the wave height,

number of people in the water

and the inability of some of the

swimmers to get into the IRB

due to panic and exhaustion.

Ultimately, all of the swimmers

were returned to shore with

two requiring intervention from

ambulance staff, along with further

monitoring for secondary

drowning.

Due to the extent of the rescue,

the off-duty lifeguards patrolled

the beach and flags so that the

regional lifeguards could regroup

and complete the paperwork

and a full debrief.

Club captain Tisha Jamieson-

Bradley said if it wasn’t for the

quick response and team work

from the club members on site

that day, it is likely there could

have been multiple drownings.

•From November 17 to

January 31, Taylors Mistake

club volunteers worked

2200 hours, completed 31

rescues (20 of those on

January 18), helped with 24

first aid incidents and five

searches.

•The number of rescues

have increased by 75 per

cent from last summer,

which was quiet by

comparison, but on par

with seasons prior to

2016/2017.

•Patrols will be extended

an extra two weekends

until March 25, due to

the hot weather and

the anticipated beach

patronage.

The lifeguards involved in the

rescues were Craig Jamieson,

Tisha Jamieson-Bradley, William

Jamieson, Mitchell Cox, Tamsin

Mills, Tirina Goldsmith, Zach

Goldsmith, Megan Rossiter,

Eve Weston, Amy Hartwell,

Brianna Cox, Brooke Goldsmith,

Agatha Weston, Jacob Clements

and Taylor Cook. The four paid

regional lifeguards on duty were

Georgia Stroud, Luke Smith, Gareth

Evans and Naomi Darvill.

A FORMER seaman’s cottage

has become home to a

community craft shop.

The little blue house on

Bayview Rd, Redcliffs, dates

back to the 1880s, and two

weeks ago under went its latest

transformation into the Craft

Cottage.

Redcliffs resident Wendy

Rendle started the co-operative

as a place where organisations

can sell goods and raise funds

for the community.

Redcliffs School and the

Redcliffs Community Shed are

two of the groups which make

and sell a range of products

from art and aprons, to plants,

preserves and perfume.

Ms Rendle said it was a way

for people who enjoyed creating

things to have an outlet.

“The Redcliffs School craft

mothers meet at the shed and

make things for the school fair.

The things that don’t sell can’t be

stored at the old school building

because it’s to be removed so

we’re storing those things and

keeping them moving, selling

them on through the year

instead of waiting for the next

school fair.”

The Community Shed makes

wooden toys and anything that

gets donated is sold on at the

cottage and the funds are put

back into running the shed.

An orphanage in India is

another one of the groups to

benefit from items sold at Craft

Cottage.

Another Stroud makes her mark

• By Gordon Findlater

TAYLORS Mistake surf lifesaver

Georgia Stroud is continuing

her family’s sporting legacy by

performing at a high level on

three different fronts.

Stroud, 17, was the only

Christchurch netballer to be

named in the 23-strong New

Zealand secondary school squad

earlier this month. She was

selected following a national development

camp

in Cambridge

with 60 of the

top secondary

school

netballers.

“I didn’t really

know if I was

Alan Stroud

strong enough

to make it, but

I’m just so stoked,” said Stroud.

Sporting talent runs deep

in her family. Stroud’s mother

Helen Mahon-Stroud played

rugby for the Black Ferns, as well

as provincial level netball, athletics,

and surf lifesaving.

She was also coach of the

Mainland Tactix from 2008-

2011, and held a high-performance

role with New Zealand

Cricket. Helen also coaches

Stroud’s netball team at Villa

Maria College.

Her father Alan Stroud is a

former All White goalkeeper. He

played three games for New Zealand

during the 80s and 90s and

won numerous Chatham Cup

MULTI-TALENTED: Georgia Stroud, daughter of former

Mainland Tactix coach Helen Mahon-Stroud (right), has made a

New Zealand age group netball squad.

titles with Christchurch United.

The year 13 student also has

a strong background in middle

distance running, regularly

competing in the 400, 800 and

1500m during the summer.

Stroud was part of Villa Maria’s

4 x 400m team which won

the national secondary school

title in 2016 and silver last year.

In April, the 4 x 400m team

also broke a South Island record

when they ran 4min 0.14sec.

Her sporting abilities don’t end

there. Stroud is a national surf

lifesaving champion. She won

both gold and silver for Taylors

Mistake in the 2km beach run at

the New Zealand Surf Life Saving

Championships last year.

She also took out the under-19

race before going on to finish

second in the open women’s

event.

“I’ve always been told growing

up, you’ve got to do as much as

you can,” said Stroud.

“When I leave school, it will

be time to make a decision on

which direction I go. But at the

moment, I’m still trying to keep

them all open. I like having a

summer and winter season. It’s

good to keep things varied, it

makes it more exciting.”

Her athletic abilities on the

track and beach appear to be

paying a dividend on the netball

court. Stroud believes her middle

distance running has helped

shape her key attribute.

“Fitness is my point of

difference. I’ve been working on

my strength over the summer. I

SPORTS

went to the development camp

last year but I was so much

smaller and less confident.”

Stroud also believes the

family’s recent relocation to

Taylors Mistake while their

house in the city is rebuilt has

suited a busy training schedule.

“Training-wise, being over

at Taylors Mistake has been

amazing for building a base,” she

said.

Stroud will also experience

netball at a high-performance

club level this year.

She has been named in an

extended squad for the Mainland

Beko League netball team.

Outside of school, training,

and patrolling the beach, Stroud

also manages to find time to

work part-time at her dad’s pub

– O’Sheas Public House – with

her younger sister Lucy.

“You’ve got to get fuel money

somehow, but it’s lots of fun. Dad

loves it when we’re there hanging

out with his mates, it’s so cool,

it’s almost not work.”

The final New Zealand secondary

school netball team will

be named after the national age

group championships in July.

The team will then build-up to

matches against the Australian

under-17 side in Canberra in

September.

Rugby boys wins Des Lyons T20

• By Gordon Findlater

THE RUGBY boys retained

bragging rights at the sixth

annual Des Lyons memorial day

at St Leonards Square.

The day’s first twenty20 match

between the Sumner Rugby

Club’s Wave XI and an Invitational

XI saw the Wave post an

imposing total of 216 batting

first. They did just enough to

defend their title with the match

being decided by two runs, one

of the closest finishes in the memorials

match’s six-year history.

Sumner first-five Nik Cumming

stole the show for the Wave

XI, scoring 35 not out before

claiming five wickets. Cumming

has previous cricket experience

at a high level having represented

the West Coast in the Hawke

Cup.

The day’s second match

between the Captains XI and

Presidents XI was won by the

Presidents. They posted 137 and

then bowled out the Captains XI

for just 99.

Nathan Wingham was key

to the Presidents XI’s bowling

efforts with figures of 2/2 from

two overs.

The annual event is held to

commemorate “the legend” Desmond

Lyons, who passed away in

2012 at the age of 71, and his role

in the community.

Since 1956, when a 15-year-old

BOWLED HIM: Sumner first-five Nik Cumming gave forwards coach Gareth

D’Almeida a send off after clean bowling him during a match between Sumner

Rugby Club’s Wave XI and an Invitational XI.

Lyons first joined the Sumner

Cricket Club, he had played and

worked continuously for the

club.

Lyons looked after the St Leonards

Square wicket and ground,

was a surf lifesaver and was involved

with tennis, golf, squash,

water polo, hockey, bowls and

rugby clubs. Club captain Dan

Vann said the day was a good

way to remember Lyons and

his work, while also providing

a chance to raise money for the

club to keep it improving.

The club raised about $4000

from raffles, auctions and sponsorship

on the day.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Water users are following the rules

Lyttelton-based

navigational safety officer

Gary Manch has some

simple tips to help you

keep safe on the water

We said:

Centre is refusing to

You said:

HAVING BEEN out and about

over the past couple of months,

I am finally back in the office

catching up on the dreaded

paperwork.

It’s not my favourite part of the

job – that’s for sure. My favourite

part of the job is that it takes

me all across Canterbury. This

summer I have visited boaties as

far north as Kaikoura, across to

Lake Coleridge in the west, and

down south as far as the Waitaki

lakes. We have an amazing region

to work and play in.

It is great to see how many

boaties are following the rules

and wearing life jackets, both

here in the Banks Peninsula area

and further afield.

THe message from Maritime

New Zealand that “nobody is

faster than disaster” could not be

more accurate. It’s too late when

you are in the water and the life

jacket is in the boat or jetski.

Make sure you and your crew are

always wearing a life jacket on

the water.

In January I had a trip down to

the Southern Lakes on my days

off. I am clearly going through a

midlife crisis at 61, as four of us

decided to take our adventure

motor-cycles through some of the

four-wheel drive tracks around

Benmore and Omarama.

SAFETY: Whether you are in

the ocean at speed, or fishing

in a high country lake, a life

jacket should be essential on

a jetski.

We were in some of the more

remote areas of Central Otago,

with little to no cellphone

coverage and no one close to

assist if we required help.

In spite of the drought, there

were several rivers to cross and

some areas were quite slippery

and muddy. We got stuck a

couple of times and if we had not

had safety equipment with us, we

would have been in the middle of

nowhere with assistance a five to

eight-hour walk away.

THe point I am trying to make

here is that, in spite of getting

stuck, we had the ability to get

ourselves out of harm’s way quickly

and safely. We had tow ropes,

personal locater beacons, first-aid

kits, extra water and snacks.

Whether it’s a motor-cycle or

boat, the same principles apply.

Think about where you are going,

what the possible risks are and

what you need to do to remove or

reduce them to a safe level. Keep

Maritime New Zealand’s slogan

“nobody is faster than disaster”

in mind when out and about and,

hopefully, you will continue to be

safe out there.

Alexandro Barnes – I do

not think van Asch should be

relocated. To the deaf community,

van Asch should be

seen as like a marae for the deaf,

it is our home, our taonga, our

culture, our identity and our

history.

Van Asch has been around

since 1880, being the first

Government-funded deaf

school worldwide, it has been

the scene of many historical

and cultural events of the deaf

world.

Since the article was released,

Facebook exploded with videos

in sign language and comments,

from both the deaf and the

hearing community, who both

recognise this location as not

just a valuable service for the

deaf and hard of hearing, but

as a school that deserves to stay,

that deserves its place in New

Zealand history.

I suggest Rachel Douglas gets

out there and engages with the

deaf community. She may be a

board chair, she may be a parent

of a child, but does she understand

and acknowledge the

treasures of the land, the value

of deaf history, identity and

culture as her comments here

and other comments by many

people elsewhere makes me

think it is all about convenience

and money for this board.

Van Asch is not closing, the

deaf community will ensure

that, and we will have the support

of the hearing community.

Are we looking at a battle like

Redcliffs School endured and

shouldn’t have endured?

Fire rages, homes at risk

Tree danger: Warning to stay away

• By Sophie Cornish

ABOUT 30 of the 100 trees on

the South New Brighton Domain

estuary edge are at risk of

falling at any time, says Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

deputy chairman Tim Sintes.

He believes it is a serious health

and safety risk, especially for

people who use the

domain walkway.

“It’s not if, it’s

when . . . those

30 trees could

fall down today,

tomorrow or in

five months time,”

Tim Sintes

said Mr Sintes.

City council

head of parks Brent

Smith said the trees are being

monitored.

“One fallen tree on the beach

of the estuary and five large tree

stumps have been removed,” Mr

Smith said.

“There is a group of eight dead

pine and macrocarpa trees near

the boundary fence which will be

removed due to safety. Treetech

will also remove a number

of broken branches in close

proximity of the main walkway.”

The work is expected to be

carried out within the next two

weeks. However Mr Sintes

does not believe that is fast

enough.

“They might have a few more to

repair if this bad weather comes

through . . . at this stage, they

aren’t going to do it between now

and the next few days, so if they

all come down, they are going to

have to move quicker than that.”

High wind and heavy rainfall

is predicted in Christchurch this

week, as the tail of Cyclone Gita

hits. Last month, a 30m tree with

rotten roots toppled into the

Avon River and sunk a Shirley

HANGING ON: Tim Sintes said

damaged trees in the South

New Brighton Domain are a

health and safety concern.

Boys’ High School rowing boat.

No one was injured.

Mr Sintes said a lot more

damage was done recently by the

king tides and strong wind.

However, he believes the cause

relates to damage and erosion

along the estuary edge, which

was previously protected before

the earthquakes.

He is pushing for the estuary

edge to be protected from

erosion, which he believes

would stop the trees from being

damaged and falling.

“If you look at some parts of

the estuary edge that weren’t

damaged in the earthquakes,

there’s no problem at all,” said Mr

Sintes

It’s quite obvious that we’re not

talking about climate

change here, we’re talking

about how there was something

to protect them before the

earthquake.

“It got damaged and we’re

paying the consequences now.”

FERRYMEAD

The Art Of Preserving

Love

by Ada Langton

WIN THIS BOOK

ENTER TO

WIN

An historical saga of undying love and family, the tragedy of

war and the power of hope. From a small Australian country

town to the tragic backdrop of World War 1, this is a story of a

love that surmounts all odds… Ballarat, 1905

The gossips call 19–year–old Edie Cottingham the ‘Too Girl’ – too stubborn,

too outspoken, and too modern to get a husband. But Edie does not care. She is

determined to defy them all and find love with Theo Hooley, the gentle church organist

and veteran of the African Boer war. But just as Theo prepares to ask Edie’s father for her

hand, their world is turned upside down. Edie’s mother is gone and she must care for

her new baby sister. Gracie is a sickly baby with a special smile that enchants everyone

who sees it. How can Edie marry and leave the family home now? But Theo Hooley is

a man who knows how to wait. Every Sunday, Theo walks from his home to woo Edie,

rose in hand. Each week Edie refuses him, knowing that he is asking for more than a

walk around the lake on a Sunday afternoon. Each week Theo resolves anew to wait for

her. Slowly the town begins to fall under the spell of the romance. Women sigh and men

mutter at the challenge Theo presents to their relationships. As the local children create a

growing procession that follows Theo each week, the whole community becomes caught

up in his display of devotion, until an unexpected event changes all their lives.

THIS BOOK

The Atomic City Girls

by Janet Beard

In the bestselling tradition of Hidden Figures and The Wives of Los Alamos, comes this

riveting novel of the everyday people who worked on the Manhattan Project during World

War II. “What you see here, what you hear here, what you do here, let it stay here.”

In November 1944, eighteen-year-old June Walker boards an unmarked bus, destined

for a city that doesn’t officially exist. Oak Ridge, Tennessee has sprung up in a matter of

months—a town of trailers and segregated houses, 24-hour cafeterias, and constant security

checks. There, June joins hundreds of other young girls operating massive machines whose

purpose is never explained. They know they are helping to win the war, but must ask no

questions and reveal nothing to outsiders.

The girls spend their evenings socializing and flirting with soldiers, scientists, and workmen

at dances and movies, bowling alleys and canteens. June longs to know more about their

top-secret assignment and begins an affair with Sam Cantor, the young Jewish physicist

from New York who oversees the lab where she works and understands the end goal only

too well, while her beautiful roommate Cici is on her own mission: to find a wealthy husband

and escape her sharecropper roots. Across town, African-American construction worker

Joe Brewer knows nothing of the government’s plans, only that his new job pays enough

to make it worth leaving his family behind, at least for now. But a breach in security will

intertwine his fate with June’s search for answers.

The Easter Story: Fact or Fable?

Why was the long-promised Messiah Jesus brutally

executed on a crude Roman Cross? What was the early

apostles’ experience of Jesus post the Crucifixion?

Was Jesus physically raised from the dead? These

two seminal events of the Christian tradition will

be examined in the light of the latest research and

biblical scholarship, especially the Jesus Seminar.

The Easter events, their place in history and their

relevance for today will also be noted.

It will be a six-week course of 2-hour sessions held

on Thursday afternoons, 2pm – 4 pm, commencing

on 8 March 2018. The course will be facilitated by

Charles Manning and Rev Rodney Routledge and be

interactive in format.
