Community rallies for family • By Sophie Cornish THE Duncan-Caley family feel like they have been hit by an “atom bomb”. But now the community is coming together to get the South Brighton family back on their feet. The Duncan-Caley’s son Connor, 8, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in June last year, which then caused him to develop Posterior Fossa Syndrome, leaving him unable to blink, swallow, move or talk. He has undergone several operations, weeks of radiation, and four months of chemotherapy. On top of that Connor’s father Mark Duncan-Caley lost his job when the company he worked for went into liquidation, and the earthquake-damaged house they bought as an ‘as is where is’ is now subject to insurance issues. So the community has rallied around to help them out with a fundraising art auction. Connor and his parents are currently living at the Wilson Centre in Auckland, which provides a rehabilitation service for children. •Turn to page 5 • By Sarla Donovan A LOWER speed limit on Dyers Pass Rd is a step closer. Current limits range from 70km/h to 100km/h – but will likely drop to a flat 60km/h after city council staff recommendations were accepted by two community boards on Friday. However, a recommendation that no-passing lines be put in place was met with opposition. The Spreydon-Cashmere and Banks Peninsula Community boards met jointly on Friday to discuss dropping speeds on Dyers Pass Rd between Hackthorne and Governors Bay Rds. While both boards agreed on a lower speed limit, Banks Peninsula did not want double yellow lines, while Spreydon- Cashmere did. In a split decision, only the section of Dyers Pass Rd that falls within the Spreydon- Cashmere board area will have double yellow lines. •Turn to page 3 Meet Ruth at the Te Hapua ¯ Halswell Centre Café 2-3pm Friday 9 March Phone 09 376 4512 For Sale Unit 1 - $419,000 Unit 2 - $429,000 View by appointment Phone Mark O’Loughlin M 021 339 078 P 03 352 0352 Email: 3 1 1 1 New Brighton 1 & 2 / 274 Travis Rd Gold Real Estate Group Ltd MREINZ Licensed Agent REAA 2008 Great Value Buying!
