the ramp breached noise levels

at its previous location on

Wakefield Ave and was shut

down on February 10, 2017.

Group member Liza Sparrow

said since then they had

worked closely with the city

council to find a suitable site

within the village.

The new location on the

corner of Wakefield Ave and

Nayland St is fully consented

and has the support of the city

council, Linwood-Central-

Alleged

home

invader

sacks

counsel

AN ALLEGED home invader who

was confronted by a Scarborough

mother in the early hours of the

morning has sacked his lawyer.

Nathan Manning, who has been

held in custody since his arrest in

early November, appeared in the

district court last week charged

with committing a burglary with

a weapon, burglary, theft from a

vehicle and theft.

He was remanded in custody

again until May to speak with his

new counsel after he was unhappy

with the first lawyer’s advice.

It’s alleged he entered hairdresser

Emely van Ras’ home about 3am last

October, demanded money from her

and threatened her with a knife.

She used a ceremonial Fijian

“skull crusher” to hold him off.

The home invasion and other

crime in the area prompted the formation

of the Safer Sumner group,

which fundraised for two CCTV

cameras.

The group is working with the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community

Board to ensure compliance

with the Privacy Act before installing

the cameras.

A site opposite the Sumner Surf

Life Saving clubrooms on Main Rd

has been suggested.

from the editor’s desk

WHAT WOULD Sumner be without surf

– and a skate ramp?

Surfing and skateboarding go hand-inhand

and now the village has a temporary

ramp on the corner of Wakefield Ave and

Nayland St. The Sumner Green and Skate group has worked

hard over the past year to get the new site up and going. This

was reflected in the big turnout for the opening at the weekend,

which we cover in today’s paper.

Running man Vajin Armstrong (see page 15) is back in the

winner’s circle again.

The Sumner Running Club member won the 85km Old Ghost

Ultra marathon on the West Coast. It took him just over seven

hours.

One fit rooster, I suspect.

Push to get pathway funding

• By Sarla Donovan

THE COASTAL pathway has

been put into the city council’s

draft Long Term Plan.

Heathcote Ward city

councillor Sara Templeton

last week pushed through an

amendment to the draft LTP to

try and prioritise what she said

was a “key piece of community

infrastructure.”

The fourth

and final

stage of the

Christchurch

Coastal

Pathway

between the

Sara

Templeton

Moncks Bay

tram stop

and Shag

Rock corner

– expected to cost between

$10 million and $12 million –

currently has no funding.

The pathway is being jointly

funded by the city council and

the Coastal Pathway Group.

The third section from Shag

Rock to the Sumner Surf Life

Saving Club has funding and

an anticipated start date of

April.

However, there is no money

at present for the final section.

Ms Templeton’s amendment

means a report with an

estimate of the costs for the

section and a time frame for

delivery will be included in

the draft Long Term Plan and

the community will be able to

make submissions on it.

There was a lack of

understanding about the

coastal pathway, with some

city councillors viewing it as

purely a “recreational nice-tohave,”

she said.

“This report, and

community submissions, will

enable the project to have the

best chance at success.”

Ms Templeton said the

original footpath on the other

side of the road was removed

during rockfall remediation

work and not replaced.

Moncks Bay pathway

is currently a “dangerous

informal path” with a drop

down to the rock or sea below.

“Footpaths are a core council

function, but this section is

currently not funded at all,”

she said.

SHORTFALL: The Moncks

Bay section of the coastal

pathway has no funding at

present.

Long time Lyttelton Information

Centre volunteer Wendy

Everingham has resigned after

15 years service, including 12 as

chairwoman. Ms Everingham

said she had been there a long

time and the centre was ready

for “some new energy.” Her

involvement in community

initiatives including the

Timebank, Project Lyttelton

and the Lyttelton Reserve

Management Committee will be

ongoing.

HARMANS TRACK SIGNAGE

Signage on Harmans Track will

be reviewed after community

concerns it is being used by

unsuitable vehicles. The rough,

four-wheel-drive track provides

an alternative route to SH75 from

Cooptown to the Hilltop Tavern,

but it is unsealed, narrow and

winding. The Banks Peninsula

Community Board has asked the

city council to review signage at

either end and ensure signs make

travellers aware the route is not

suitable for non-4WD vehicles.

Lower speed

limit likely for

Richmond Hill Rd

PRECIPITOUS Richmond Hill

Rd in Sumner could get a lowered

speed limit of 40km/h as a new

bylaw comes into effect.

The city council is proposing to

reduce speeds after “requests from

the local community in relation

to safety concerns in Richmond

Hill.”

The road is narrow with minimal

footpaths and cars are often

parked on the side of the road.

Speed restrictions would

apply from the intersection with

Nayland St upwards.

Speed advisory signs are also

planned on the hairpin bends,

likely to be between 15 and

25km/h.

The new Traffic and Parking

Bylaw takes effect in March,

allowing the city council to

set and change speed limits

on Christchurch roads – in

accordance with Land Transport

rules.

However, there are no moves

afoot to put in new footpaths or

widen the road, due to lack of

funding and space.

proposed changes before

in Akaroa is likely before next

at implementing a temporary

ban.

“There are activities happening

in Akaroa at the moment

that cannot continue for another

The city council temporarily

closed five popular freedom

during the 2015/2016

Signage under scrutiny

• By Sarla Donovan

TOO MANY signs along

Sumner and Scarborough

Beach could dilute their

impact.

Sumner residents have

been pushing for clearer

signage after 14-year-old

Jack Sutton was caught

in a rip and died while

swimming near Cave Rock

earlier this month.

But Surf Life Saving New

Zealand is warning against

information overload.

“If too many signs are

put in place with too much

information, there is too

much to take in and the

original message doesn’t

get through to members

of the community,” said

southern region manager

Stu Bryce.

The city council has

contacted SLS NZ about

completing an audit of

signage in the area.

Most of what is currently

there was installed by the

city council in 2010 and

was intended to describe

the hazards of the area.

The focus was on ensuring

people were informed

and encouraged to swim

between the flags, a

meeting of the Sumner

SIGNS: The current signage at Sumner and

Scarborough beaches warns of strong currents

but doesn’t mention rips or identify specific spots.

Community Residents’ Association

and city council

parks unit staff heard on

February 13.

The signs identify

“strong currents” as a hazard,

but do not specify rips

or identify particular spots.

The idea of moveable

signs was raised at the

meeting – which could be

shifted according to ocean

conditions.

Mr Bryce said any signs

would need to be suitable

based on conditions.

“The feasibility and security

of any moveable signs

will need to be worked out

further along the discussion.”

SLS NZ is also in discussions

with the city council

about having flags on

Scarborough Beach.

It currently only

has only roving patrols by

Sumner Surf Life Saving

Club volunteers, due to

its 1.25km length and the

fact it was covered at high

tide.

Fire rages, homes at risk

•From page 1

Eleven-year-old Joel Fulford

said he was “definitely excited”

and looking forward to the easy

access; he had been using Washington

Park in the city which

involved a bus ride and “chipped

into” the amount of time he had

to skate.

Connor McSoriley, 14, said it

would be good for people from

town who could come out to the

beach and afterwards go to the

ramp.

Parent volunteers are rostered

on to lock and unlock it – opening

hours are 8am-9pm.

“The kids are very excited,” Ms

Sparrow said. “It’s about being

outside, playing and connecting.

It’s really important they have a

place to go that is theirs.”

She hoped the ramp would

bring added life and vibrancy to

the village.

Sumner builder Trevor Hone

helped build the original ramp on

the village green about six years

ago and has been closely involved

in getting it up and running at its

latest site.

He said the ramp would be a

“focal point” for the village.

The city council is currently

considering feedback on the four

shortlisted sites for a permanent

Bays area skate park.

Both vehicles were badly

damaged and six people were

Police said the interior of

the campervan looked like a

THE STEPS which once

provided public access to

the beach at the eastern end

of Beachville Rd need be

restored, says a residents’

association.

The Redcliffs Residents’

Association has written a letter

asking for the project to be

included in the city council’s

Long Term Plan.

The previous steps were

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake, and were

not replaced during repairs to

the sea wall.

The association has asked

the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

to amend the draft Long Term

Plan to include the project.

There is a small beach at

the site which is well-used

by swimmers, kayakers

and paddle boarders, said

association secretary Pat

McIntosh.

However, at the moment

access is only possible by

clambering over unstable

rocks, said Dr McIntosh.

“We have been told of two

people who have received

minor injuries when trying

to take kayaks over these

boulders.” The nearest

alternative access ways to the

beach is about 1km in either

direction, she said.

“(This project) may be small

but is very important for the

amenity of this coastal area.”

New plan

saves Lyttelton

car parks

• By Sarla Donovan

FIVE PARKING spaces will now

be retained after criticism over

changes to bus stops and parking

in central Lyttelton.

As part of a proposal in October

last year, the city council wanted

to remove five parking spaces on

Oxford St, near the Winchester

St intersection, to improve sight

lines for pedestrians using the

crossing – which it intends to

make permanent.

But after public opposition to

the loss of on-street parking, the

city council proposed an alternative

crossing design. It would

result in safety improvements and

retain some on-street parking, according

to a city council report.

A school safety zone is in operation

in the area, so the speed limit

will be lower at times when the

crossing is in high use. The other

changes include two existing bus

stops on Winchester and Oxford

Sts being replaced by one about

50m north along Oxford St; a new

bus stop seat; extending time-restricted

parking outside Lyttelton

Primary School and extending

the no-stopping area on Oxford St

north of London St.

Work is set to start in April/

May and will cost about $60,000.

and how they get about.

Environment Canterbury

has been working with our city

council to look at transport

needs and I think the big picture

it is considering should be commended.

The Greater Christchurch

CUTBACKS: The Eastgate to Lyttelton and Rapaki bus service

may be cut as ECan looks to plug a $4 million hole in its public

transport budget.

public transport joint committee

is also doing good work,

finally bringing the roles of the

regional council and the city

council together (obviously with

central government through the

New Zealand Transport Agency

as well). But there are some immediate

challenges to be faced.

There is a $4 million hole in

ECan’s public transport budget.

As a response to this, it is proposing

to axe six routes which

are not well used, including the

Eastgate to Lyttelton and Rapaki

route.

It is also proposing to remove

the subsidy which disabled people

currently have on their fares.

I fear that we are on a continuing

downward spiral with

public transport and that it

might be time to take a fresh

approach about how investment

could improve usage and end up

with more people using our bus

service than currently do.

It has certainly improved

since 2011, but is still not paying

its way.

How much cross subsidy

should there be for those people

in areas which have no alternatives

other than private car use?

Is our model broken or does it

just need tweaking?

This is a really important issue

and ECan want to hear your

views. I encourage you to make

a submission on the Long Term

Plan which just opened this

week.

Have your say while you can.

Your Local Views

Daniel Leadley – The most

painful thing about working in

Christchurch parks. The fact

you’re not allowed to take dead

leaves off the trees themselves

– having to wait till they are

spread all over the park before

you can pick them up – is very

frustrating.

We said:

The board of Sumner’s

van Asch Deaf Education

Centre is refusing to

rule out a relocation and

subsequent land sale

You said:

Maria Simmonds – I am

a recently retired teacher with

experience in mainstream

and special schools, and

as an itinerant teacher of

students with special needs in

mainstream schools.

I believe van Asch school

and education centre would be

much better situated in a central

location in Christchurch.

Like Ferndale School

(for children with special

educational needs – intellectual,

sensory and physical) and

Elmwood Visual Resource

Centre (for students with visual

impairment), both located in

Merivale, education centres for

students with special educational

needs should be located centrally

to provide easier accessibility

to the wider community.

Many students with

disabilities are now welcomed

into mainstream schools, and

with sufficient support, their

educational needs are being

met, particularly at primary

school level. However, in my

view, there will always be a place

LEAVE THEM ALONE: Tim Lindley with one of the 24 poisoned cabbage trees along the coastal

pathway.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

for schools that offer specialised

teaching in smaller classes for

students whose needs cannot be

met in regular classrooms with

25-35 other students.

Such specialised schools

and resource centres have an

enormous amount to offer

parents, teachers and support

staff, including specialised

knowledge, technology

and experience at the

coal-face. While regular schools

have access to Ministry of

Education specialists, it would

be great to see more collegial

support between specialised

schools and mainstream

schools. Teachers and teacher

aides can learn a great deal from

sharing their experiences.

We said:

Twenty four cabbage

trees have been

found dead along the

Christchurch Coastal

Pathway

You said:

Mia Griffiths – I hate the

bloody things, much nicer

natives available. We have one in

a reserve in front of our house.

You should see the mess left

after a cyclone’s been through,

and who picks up the leaves and

has to dispose of them? Not the

council.

Nanny Ma – I love them as

they feed bees and birds but woe

betide your lawn mower when it

hits the leaves.

Jan Driscoll – My neighbour

has a massive cabbage tree that

sheds copious dead leaves every

time there is a wind from east

and south, right into my place.

My red bin is full every two

weeks with the darn things. It’s

a beautiful tree, but I wish it was

somewhere else.

James Tarrant – What

killed them? I’m having trouble

trying to get rid of mine.

Seeds keep spreading and

I keep removing them but

sometimes I miss them.

Dessiel Shepard – Okay,

who did this? Just be honest

so I can post you chocolates, beer

and petrol vouchers.

Ashley Campbell – These

trees evolved to be in this

environment. If you look at the

parts of this city that the natural

environment is reclaiming, you

will find cabbage trees are the

most prolific of the regenerating

species. This is their space, we

moved into it. Native birds love

them , the nectar of their flowers

feeds bellbirds, tui, and kereru,

so if you have cabbage trees

around you are more likely to

attract those birds. As well, their

berries feed those same birds and

some introduced species. They

are among the most fire-resistant

of our native trees. Offshore,

for example, in the United

Kingdom they are considered

highly desirable exotic trees to

be tended to and loved (in the

UK they are known as torquay

palms, because they do best

in the south-west of Great

Britain). It would be nice if we

could treat them with the same

love and respect here, where they

evolved, and are a crucial part of

our natural ecosystem.

Sara Templeton – Not for

everyone, I know, but I learned

how to make twine from the

leaves at a rekindle workshop.

Shelley Ingle – Their leaves,

when dry, are great for starting

fires . . . less kindling required!

Tutors’ commitment brings

results for students

A genuine commitment to helping

students achieve in education and concern

for what happens to them are what brings

the results for children tutored at Kip

McGrath Ferrymead, says franchise owner

Helen Hudson.

“As they progress through the sessions we

see them blossom and grow in confidence

with their learning and that’s so rewarding,”

Helen says.

The other key factors that set Kip McGrath

apart and contribute to students’ success are

that all tutors have to be qualified teachers,

and that students have the same tutor every

time they attend, Helen says.

“This allows the tutors to build a rapport

with their students. They work on an

individualised programme within a small

group of three to five students.”

Communication with parents is another

important aspect, Helen points

out.

“We have to be meeting the

needs of the children as the

parents see it, as well as what

we see is needed.”

Kip McGrath Ferrymead

has six tutors offering students

from Year 1-13 tutoring in

maths and English – covering

a broad spectrum of spelling,

writing and reading, with

the tutors fully conversant

with NCEA requirements.

Chemistry, Physics and Biology

along with English and Maths

tutoring is available for Year

11, 12 and 13 students.

“With the senior students

we work alongside them, but

they are really the leader of

the lesson, which is tailormade

to their needs,” Helen

says.

There is also a focus on

children with learning

difficulties, such as dyslexia,

and for accelerant students,

who need extra challenges.

Each tutoring session lasts one

hour 20 minutes, with about six different

activities included each time. Sessions are

run outside school hours, either before or

after school, with most students attending

once a week.

“We also offer one-on-one tutoring for

adult students, who may need to improve

their English or maths skills for work they

want to apply for.”

There are several funding subsidies

Kip McGrath Ferrymead franchise owner Helen

Hudson helping a student

available for Kip McGrath tutoring.

Registered Ngai Tahu members receive

some funding, as do registered members

of the Rotorua-based Tauhara No. 2 Trust.

Fletchers also provide funding subsidies for

family members of their employees.

Free assessments are offered, and students

can enroll at any time of the year.

VAJIN ARMSTRONG has

gone one better at the 85km

Old Ghost Ultra marathon on

the West Coast after finishing

second in 2017.

The Sumner Running Club

member completed the race in

just over seven hours to win

comfortably by more than

17min ahead of his nearest

competitor.

He also continued a strong

month of competitions after

winning the 62km event at

the Tarawera Ultra Marathon

earlier this month.

The Old Ghost Ultra on

Saturday started at 6am from

Seddonville. All competitors

required a head torch for the

first hour to navigate the old

miner’s trail, which at times

was cliff-hugging, through

the stunning Mokihinui River

Gorge.

Armstrong was in the leading

pack of four runners up to the

first check point (17km). After

that, he started to increase the

pace and the pack whittled

down while running through

the towering podocarp forest.

Armstrong reached the

halfway point, completing the

first 43km in a blistering time of

3hr 21min. From here, the race

became a true test. Competitors

were treated to an 800m ascent

over the next 13km. Part way up

the climb there was more than

200 steps to contend with which

smashed the quads, but runners

were rewarded with breathtaking

views of the Southern

Alps while running along the

market is not cooling!

The weather may be cooling but the property market in the seaside

suburbs certainly isn’t!

Kaituna

cricket

side seeks

promotion

• By Gordon Findlater

THE DIAMOND Harbour-

Kaituna Cricket Club is

hopeful of having a team in the

Canterbury country premier

grade competition for the first

time since 2015.

The club’s top one-day side

currently sits comfortably at the

top of the combined senior grade

competition. The winner of the

competition has the option to be

promoted to the premier grade.

Team manager and club

stalwart Mark Pearson believes

the current crop of players at the

club have what it takes to gain

promotion and compete with the

big boys of country cricket next

summer.

First the team have to finish

the summer the way they started.

They currently have just one loss

to their name. However, their

near perfect record will count

for nothing when the semi-finals

start next month.

Although the club slipped

out of the top grade of country

cricket, in recent years they have

had plenty of player accomplishments

to celebrate. Current Black

Cap Henry Nicholls is the club’s

first and only New Zealand

representative, while pace bowler

Will Williams from Little Akaloa

has featured for Canterbury at

first class level this summer.

A strong contingent of weekly

regulars have helped the team to

dominate the combined senior

grade to date this season. Hamish

Matheson, Andy Nicholls,

Bevan Sloan and Johnny Pugh

have all led the charge with the

bat, while Jonathan Moody has

been the chief destroyer with the

ball.

They host Weedons B on Saturday

and travel to Swannanoa on

March 10 before the semi-finals

begin on March 17.
