Brewing beer in the old bank

• By Sarla Donovan

THE FORMER BNZ building

in Lyttelton will reopen its doors

in April – dealing not in bank

notes, but beer.

Eruption Brewing owners

Shaun Crossan and Steven Leftly

have been working for two years

to transform the old bank into a

rustic brewery pub.

Although the original concrete

panels are still visible, the addition

of wooden decks and

structures have given more of an

unpolished, industrial feel, venue

manager Brendan Hyndman

said.

Since it started in 2013, Eruption

Brewing has been operating

out of Woolston.

But the first batch was put

down at the new premises in

October last year. Mr Hyndman

said the last time beer had been

brewed on London St was 150

years ago.

The venue won’t fully open to

the public until April “if the stars

align.”

There had been “a few hiccups”

with the renovation, Mr

Hyndman said. “Just a lot more

concrete to make it comply with

EQC regulations.”

SUMNER SKATE ramp users

are causing a headache for

motorists.

Young skateboarders running

across Wakefield Ave to use the

ramp are prompting fears of an

accident waiting to happen.

A planned lower speed limit of

30km/h within the village may

be fast-tracked as a short term

measure, Heathcote Ward city

councillor Sara Templeton said

yesterday.

And a longer-term solution –

shifting the pedestrian crossing

further south along Wakefield

Ave – is planned for mid-year.

Sumner resident Janet

Sirisomphone was travelling

north along Wakefield Ave on

Sunday morning when she had

to slam on the brakes after a

child dashed across to get to

the ramp rather than use the

pedestrian crossing further

down the street.

get on your bike

THE SUMNER skate ramp appears to be a

great success. But with it has come the odd

problem.

We highlight on page 1 today concerns

skate boarders are whistling across

Nayland and Wakefield to get to and from the ramp.

There’s been a near miss apparently. Probably others have

gone unreported. There is a plan down the track to shift the

pedestrian crossing closer to the skate ramp. There’s merit in

that.

The main drag through the retail area will also become a

30km/h zone in time to come – and that is a very good move.

But in spite of these measures, young skate boarders will still

cut across the road.

Motorists will just have to be vigilant.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Rats on the rise in Sumner as

cooler weather approaches

• By Sarla Donovan

MORE RATS are being trapped

in Sumner as autumn arrives.

Predator Free Sumner coordinator

Gabe Ross said they

were starting to “haul them in,”

with 23 caught in February.

“The animals start to look

for new sources of food, as the

weather cools and the autumn

bounty starts to disappear.”

Esplanade resident Phil

Loughnan has single-handedly

SWEET TOOTH: This rat

couldn’t resist the bait –

Whittaker’s peanut chocolate.

nabbed 13 rats at or near his

home at the western end of

Scarborough Beach.

There were also five hedgehogs

caught in February.

It brings the total catch to 117

since the programme started in

October.

Mr Ross said while the numbers

might not seem that high

– there are 178 traps in the area –

“we are dealing with varying levels

of enthusiasm and expertise

in both trapping and reporting,

so it is a good start.”

Predator Free Sumner last year

received a Kiwibank grant to

subsidise 140 traps in the greater

Sumner area, from Clifton Hill

to Taylors Mistake.

Co-ordinator Gabe Ross said

the uptake in the community

had been excellent.

But educating people about

keeping traps set all the time,

how best to keep them baited

and what baits to use was ongoing,

he said.

“It’s a learning process we’re all

going through.”

Trap numbers would have

to increase if Sumner was to

become predator free.

PREDATORS: A ‘heatmap’ of catches since October – the red

spots indicate areas where a lot of pests have been caught.

He estimated a fifth of households

would need to be actively

trapping.

“We’re well below that at present.

If we were just to cover the

valley floor, it would take about

300 rat traps, evenly spaced. That

would be a pretty great start.”

The group is looking at funding

and sponsorship opportunities to

increase their trap stocks.

They were also looking at

holding a ‘build-your-own-trap’

workshop.

In the meantime, Mr Ross

said people can get in touch for

advice and information:

Council seeks future use for Banks

• By Sarla Donovan

IDEAS ARE being sought for

the future use of four heritage

buildings on Banks Peninsula.

They are the Lyttelton Borough

Council stables in Lyttelton; Yew

Cottage in Akaroa; the Little

River Coronation Library and

Kukupa Hostel in Pigeon Bay.

Individuals, groups and

organisations interested in using

or helping to fund the buildings’

restoration have until March

29 to submit ideas to the city

council.

Most sustained damage in the

September 2010, and February

2011, Canterbury earthquakes

and are yet to be repaired.

“Unfortunately, we don’t have

enough money right now to

repair all our heritage buildings

within the next few years, so

we need to prioritise how these

funds should be spent,’’ city

council acting head of parks

Brent Smith said.

Lyttelton resident and former

property manager at The

Tannery, Ian Knewstubb, said

the former stables should be

retained and eventually restored,

in spite of the cost.

“My oath – there’s so little left.

They don’t have to happen that

fast. The main thing is to hold on

to them.”

He said the building should

be made weather-tight and a

working party should be set up.

“In Italy, they just make sure

nothing happens to the (old)

buildings. If it takes 10, 20,

30, 40 years – that’s what it

takes. The major thing is to

hold on to them and establish

a working party to look at how

to maintain them as they are,

how to fund raise, and also to

establish what purpose they

should be put to.”

The stables were built in

1914 for councillors to lodge

their steeds; the horses were

replaced by motor vehicles

in 1939.

Estimates put the cost of

restoration at around $2.2

million.

AT LEAST $750,000 TO RESTORE: The Little River Coronation Library building sits in the Awa-Iti

Domain near the War Memorial Gates. ​

‘Water and Light’, it’s all around us and nowhere

more so than on the Banks Peninsula.

As small outcrop of volcanic rock jutting out into

the Southern Ocean we are surrounded on all

sides, and nowhere

is that interplay

between water and

light more evident.

The Little River

Gallery is proud to

host Philip Beadle’s

latest work, inspired

by the landscapes

of the Plains and

Peninsula.

Using a mixture of oil, watercolour, drypoint

and monotype, Philip’s work is as varied as the

landscapes he depicts.

Christchurch based Philip Beadle, whether

working with the human form or drawing

inspiration from the low sun on water agitated

by wind, uses the Canterbury environment to

inform his work.

Warm and inviting, cold and forgiving, water

and light are constant but also forever changing.

‘Water and Light’ is showing at

Little River Gallery from 10th March

to 4th April.

LANDMARK: Yew Cottage is known by Akaroa locals as Jeannie’s

Cottage in honour of long-term resident Jeannie Wendelborn.

Peninsula heritage buildings

The Little River Coronation

Library building has an estimated

minimum restoration cost

of $750,000 – however, this

figure is based on preliminary

investigations rather than

engineering costs, according to a

city council report.

The library was built to mark

the coronation of King George

V. It was opened in 1913, and it

remained in use as a library until

2000.

The former Kukupa School

building in Pigeon Bay – which

is a listed Heritage New Zealand

building – operated from 1878

until 1949. In 1951 it opened as

the Youth Hostel Association’s

first stand-alone hostel in New

Zealand.

Akaroa’s Yew Cottage is another

well-known landmark in need

of restoration. Built of locally

milled timber in 1877, it provides

a record of the lifestyle of early

colonial settlers.

Both properties are estimated

to cost around $250,000 each to

restore.

The city council said it welcomed

all “workable” proposals, including

those from commercial businesses,

community groups or charitable

trusts.

register your interest, visit www.

In the meantime, Eruption

Brewing has a special licence to

mornings while the Lyttelton

Market is in full swing.

On its first Saturday, the brewery

sold 90 cups of coffee and 20

litres of beer.

“It was a really, really good feel

from the heart of Lyttelton,” said

Mr Hydnman. “Steve and Shaun

are quite local and do quite a lot

of activities through the community

and it’s been well-received.”

One of its brewers, Chris Wells,

comes from Dunedin and has

been on board for the past year.

An on-licence and off-licence

are in the pipeline and there are

plans to offer food, but this was

still being worked on.

“We have a couple of chefs on

board but it’s early stages yet; it

could be tapas, it could be burgers.”

Live music on Sunday afternoons

and weddings and functions

are also being considered for

the venue.

NEW RELEASES

The Wife’s Tale

A Personal History by Aida edermariam

The extraordinary story of an indomitable 95-year-old woman – and of the

most extraordinary century in Ethiopia’s history. A new Wild Swans

A hundred years ago, a girl was born in the northern Ethiopian city of Gondar.

Before she was ten years old, Yetemegnu was married to a man two decades

her senior, an ambitious poet-priest. Over the next century her world changed

beyond recognition. She witnessed Fascist invasion and occupation, Allied

bombardment and exile from her city, the ascent and fall of Emperor Haile

Selassie, revolution and civil war. She endured all these things alongside

parenthood, widowhood and the death of children.

The Wife’s Tale is an intimate memoir, both of a life and of a country. In prose

steeped in Yetemegnu’s distinctive voice and point of view, Aida Edemariam

retells her grandmother’s stories of a childhood surrounded by proud priests

and soldiers, of her husband’s imprisonment, of her fight for justice – all of it

played out against an ancient cycle of festivals and the rhythms of the seasons.

Kill the Angel

by Sandrone dazieri

A high-speed train from Milan draws into the station in Rome, and an

horrific discovery in one carriage rocks the city. Preliminary investigations

are put in the hands of Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli.

The police receive a message claiming responsibility for the act and

announcing more murders to come, and they duly turn their attention

to a small terrorist group of Islamic extremists. But investigator Dante

Torre does not believe this angle. For him, this feels like a smokescreen

concealing the actions of a killer who has a far more terrible motivation

to continue.

The trail leads to Berlin and Venice, where the waters of the Venetian

Lagoon will turn blood red...

Miss Burma

by Charmaine Craig

A beautiful and poignant story of one family during the most violent and

turbulent years of world history, Miss Burma is a powerful novel of love and

war, colonialism and ethnicity, and the ties of blood. Miss Burma tells the

story of modern-day Burma through the eyes of Benny and Khin, husband

and wife, and their daughter Louisa. After attending school in Calcutta, Benny

settles in Rangoon, then part of the British Empire, and falls in love with Khin,

a woman who is part of a long-persecuted ethnic minority group, the Karen.

Benny and Khin’s eldest child, Louisa, has a danger-filled, tempestuous

childhood and reaches prominence as Burma’s first beauty queen soon

before the country falls to dictatorship. As Louisa navigates her newfound

fame, she is forced to reckon with her family’s past, the West’s ongoing covert

dealings in her country, and her own loyalty to the cause of the Karen people.

Based on the story of the author’s mother and grandparents, Miss Burma is

a captivating portrait of how modern Burma came to be and of the ordinary

people swept up in the struggle for self-determination and freedom.

Chopper - From the Inside

by Mark Brandon read

“Apart from Irish whiskey, good cigars, Pontiac motor cars, and a pistol grip

baby .410 shotgun with solid load shells, what I love the most is kidnapping

smartarse gangsters and taking their money. To the human filth I have

bashed, belted, iron barred, axed, shot, stabbed, knee capped, set on fire and

driven to their graves, I can only quote from the motto of the French Foreign

Legion, ‘Je Ne Regrette Rien’...I regret nothing.” Mark Brandon ‘Chopper’

Read is the son of a strict Seventh Day Adventist mother and a shell-shocked

soldier who slept with a loaded gun at his side. Bullied at school, he grew

up dreaming of revenge, determined to be the toughest and hardest of

them all. He became a criminal legend who terrorised drug dealers, pimps,

thieves and armed robbers on the streets and in jail - but boasts he never

hurt an innocent member of the public. This first volume of Chopper’s

memoirs, written from inside jail, tells the story of his early life of crime - from

streetfighter to standover man, gunman to long-term prisoner. Chopper: From

the Inside is laced with his trademark brutal humour, and gives us a gripping

insight into Australia’s underworld.

Peninsula farmer Andrew

Craw has criticised the

city council over road

maintenance.

For the past 25 years, Mr

Craw has run a sheep and

beef farm in Little Akaloa.

He told Bay Harbour

News the road sides were

not being mowed or

sprayed, surfaces were

breaking up and potholes

were forming.

It had gotten “pretty bad”

over the past six months, he

said, and it wasn’t just the

metal roads.

“The surface of the sealed

road is more of a concern –

it’s falling to pieces.”

He said he’d rung the city

council twice in the past

three months, requesting

a new layer of shingle and

Road maintenance

criticised again

asking for the potholes to

be fixed. But nothing has

been done.

“I haven’t seen a grader

through on the

shingle roads

for as long as

12 months. The

surface is falling

apart and there’s

no shingle (on

it).”

Meanwhile, in

Goughs Bay, a

truck dropping

off winter feed

for animals

struggled to get

out during recent

heavy rain.

Banks Peninsula Transport

manager Rex Gebbie

said it had left a “whole lot”

on the side of the road at

the top of the bay because

it wasn’t able to safely go

down and get out again.

‘there’s no cars coming I’ll

just whip across here’.”

She said she didn’t mind

the ramp being there but

worried about the traffic

aspect.

Sumner Green and Skate

member Liza Sparrow

said the new site was fully

consented.

“The city council identified

the current location as

suitable. Key considerations

regarding suitability which

include safety, noise, visibility

and land ownership

were taken into account

and investigated. The city

council also took advice

from New Zealand Police,

roading and their own consent

teams and were confident

in providing resource

consent for the corner of

Wakefield Ave and Nayland

St,” she said.

The group recently ran

an education programme

with local schools around

safety and etiquette at the

new location.

“These are kids, they all

know the road rules but

they will need reminding.

Please support them,” Ms

Sparrow said.

The roller doors are up on the

garage and a black leather couch

sits in one corner.

Tools are arranged in an orderly

fashion along the back wall

and a nonchalant cat jumps onto

a long bench and weaves among

them.

The man behind The Bikery

is Mark Wallace. He’s bouncy

and enthusiastic and it’s hard to

believe he’s 54.

TANDEM: Mark Wallace and

Liza Sparrow on one of the

tandem bikes donated to

The Bikery. ​

A lecturer in behaviour

change and motivational

interviewing at Canterbury University,

he’s built a career around

the psychology of helping people

establish a healthy lifestyle.

Cycling is one of his passions,

and when the space out the back

of the Sumner Community Residents’

Association came up in

the middle of last year, he and a

couple of friends had the idea of

a setting up a community bike

shop.

It has now been operating

since June and after a slow start

is getting quite busy at weekends.

Mr Wallace and the other volunteers

can help get your bike

back on the road – or teach you

how to do it yourself.

It’s a place for people to hang

out and learn about bikes and

how to fix them – and skateboards

are on the menu, too.

“It’s not a man shed,” he

insists. “We wanted children

and older people involved. It’s a

way of getting more connection

within the community.”

People have donated bikes

they no longer use like the

tandems, and The Bikery hopes

to soon secure funding for extra

equipment such as a permanent

pump for bikes, prams and mobility

scooters.

Sumner Community Residents’

Association manager Liza

Sparrow said the state of the

roads since the February 22,

2011, earthquake meant many

parents were reluctant to let

their children bike to school.

However, once the coastal

pathway is complete, she hoped

there would be an increase in

cyclists.

cycling with like-minded

enthusiasts at The Bikery

Lower speed

limit on Dyers

• 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 met with opposition.

In a split decision, only the

section of Dyers Pass Rd that falls

within the Spreydon-Cashmere

board area will have double yellow

lines – extending from Hackthorne

Rd south for 3.4km.

The Spreydon-Cashmere and

Banks Peninsula community

boards met jointly on Friday to

discuss lowering speeds on Dyers

Pass Rd, between Hackthorne

and Governors Bay Rds.

While both boards agreed on a

lowered speed limit, Banks Peninsula

did not want double yellow

lines, while Spreydon-Cashmere

did.

Spreydon-Cashmere board

chairwoman Karolin Potter said

it was a difficult issue and there

were “quite a lot of strong opinions”

aired at the meeting.

About 13 people gave submissions,

most from Banks Peninsula,

she said.

“Some of them were cyclists

who believed that it would put

them in danger because motorists

would believe they couldn’t

cross the yellow lines but still

would want to pass them – and in

some places the distance between

the car and the cyclist would be

very little. Other people didn’t

like the idea of their right to pass

being transgressed.”

Ms Potter said the Spreydon-

Cashmere board asked for education

of motorists – that they can

cross double yellow lines in order

to pass cyclists.

Dyers Pass Rd has a high risk

rating compared to other rural

roads in Banks Peninsula.

Over the nine years from 2006-

2017, there were 14 serious injuries

and one fatality between Sign

of the Takahe and Governors Bay

Vehicles losing control during

cornering made up three quarters

of 178 accidents recorded over

that period.

The city council will decide in

early April whether to accept the

board’s recommendation to lower

the speed limits.

SMASH: The car left the road and hit a tree front on causing critical injuries to the driver.

Man critical after car hits tree

• By Andrew King

A MAN suffered critical injuries

after the car he was driving hit a

scene on Christchurch Akaroa

An off-duty firefighter riding

Little River chief fire officer

Dave Irving said they are unsure

if he pulled the man from the

vehicle or he did so on his own.

“We are not sure if he was assisted

out or the adrenalin helped

him get out of the vehicle, we

didn’t have that conversation, but

we found him [the driver] lying

on the ground with some very

serious injuries,” he said.

He was taken to Christchurch

Long Term Plan: Have your say

Consultation

on the city

council’s

Long Term

Plan opens

on Friday.

Heathcote

Ward city

councillor Sara Templeton

explains what the plan is

and why you should care

EVERY THREE years the

city council drafts a 10-year

budget for consultation with the

community, known as the Long

Term Plan.

There’s a 40-page consultation

document, a capital programme,

the financial strategy, the

levels of service, and a 30-year

infrastructure plan which

sets the planned expenditure,

borrowing and rates.

While it’s a big document, it’s

not as daunting as you’d think to

get involved and have your say.

It’s all available online with

searchable pdfs and consultation

is open from Friday to April 13.

Paper copies are also available at

service centres and libraries

It’s your money and your

city. Everyone has an opinion

about what’s happening in

their community and across

Christchurch and now is the

time to influence the city council

budget.

Yes – yes, you can. Time and

time again changes are made

(including big ones) based on the

consultation.

Writing submissions and

speaking at the hearings does

count. And make sure that you

pathway in the city council’s

say what you want to stay in the

draft, not just what you want

to add or cut. Projects that are

there could also be cut if there’s

not enough support.

There will be Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board-run drop-in sessions and

local community groups are also

putting together information for

their communities.

Here’s a list of key local issues

that I hear about from the

community and where they are

currently in the draft Long Term

Plan:

Bays area skate park – most

of the funding budgeted in

2020/21.

•Coastal pathway – currently

no money budgeted for the

Moncks Bay section.

•Sumner Village Master Plan

– various stages funded.

•Scarborough playground –

funded 2018/19.

•Main Rd Master Plan –

Redcliffs Village streetscape and

Beachville Rd streetscape funded

2018/19.

•Beachville Rd steps – currently

no money on budget to

replace them.

•Heathcote Expressway Major

Cycle Route – Tannery to Heathcote

delayed until 2025/6.

•Rapanui Shag Rock MCR

– the last section, Humphreys

Drive, is funded in 2019/20/21.

•Cobb Cottage – funded

2018/19. Maintenance issues are

a ‘level of service’ that could be

increased.

The city council’s job is to balance

service provision with rates

affordability, and current needs

with those of future generations.

It’s not easy, but we do listen – so

please have your say.

Obey the rules on your jet ski

Lyttelton-based

navigational safety officer

Gary Manch has some

simple tips to help keep

you safe on the water

Pirate’s Corner

This Weekend!

March 10-11

SINCE MY last update I’ve

received several complaints

about jet skis speeding in

areas that are restricted to five

knots.

My message this week is

directed to all boaties, but

mainly at the jet skiers out

there who choose either

wilfully or through lack of

knowledge to not comply with

our Navigation Safety Bylaw

speed rules.

I want to reinforce the fact

that we are not here to stop

you having fun on the water,

we are here to ensure the

safety of all water users. There

are plenty of areas where you

can “hoon” around without

putting yourself or others at

risk, or without breaking the

rules and making yourself

liable for a fine.

In general, if you are within

200m of the shore or a structure,

the maximum speed is

five knots, unless the area is

indicated as a speed uplifted

zone, access lane or ski lane. If

you are within 50m of a swimmer

or other vessel, including

the ones you may be travelling

with, the maximum speed

is five knots. A speed of five

knots is equivalent to a fast

walking pace. You shouldn’t

be creating a wake at that

speed.

Three areas of recent complaints

are Purau Bay, Sumner

Bay and the Heathcote Estuary.

To ensure clarity, here are

the rules in those areas.

Sumner Bay from Scarborough

to the northern side of

Shag Rock is a five-knot zone

from the shore to 400m out.

This includes when leaving

the boat ramps at either the

Christchurch Yacht Club or

the Coastguard ramp at Scarborough.

The Heathcote Estuary,

including the Heathcote and

Avon river, up to Shag Rock is

a five-knot zone.

Purau Bay is a five-knot

zone until you are 200m from

the shore. The southern end

of the bay is a ‘no powerboat’

area, including jet skis, and is

marked clearly with buoys.

Please remember to learn

the rules for the area you’re

boating in, and be safe out

there – no excuses.

Rotary gives aid after cyclone

Ferrymead

Rotary

member

Barbara

Crooks

talks about

extending

a helping

hand to those worst

affected by Cyclone Gita

ASSISTANCE: A Rotary volunteer delivers emergency kits

following the devastating cyclone in Tonga last month.

THE BAY Harbour

community is doing its

bit to help 4000 Tongans

and Samoans recover from

February’s hard-hitting

Cyclone Gita.

This support has come in

the form of 700-plus Rotary

emergency response kits

distributed in the wake of the

cyclone.

A dress-up movie-day

organised by Mt Pleasant

School pupils raised the $600

needed to fund one of these

kits. The other was part of Ferrymead

Rotary’s continuing

support for this international

emergency-support service.

In the wake of the latest

cyclone, Ferrymead Rotary

has already contributed to a

replacement kit. Because of

Rotary’s international links,

the administration and packing

is done voluntarily – which

allows every funding dollar to

go towards the contents and

transport.

Rotary’s strategy is to locate

the kits in danger areas before

a crisis occurs.

In December, on the advice

of weather forecasters as the

cyclone season neared, 1000

kits were placed in Fiji and

Tonga within easy reach of all

Pacific Islands. Five hundred

were distributed immediately

to those most in need.

Tonga was hardest hit – two

people killed, 41 injured, at

least 171 homes destroyed and

more than 1100 damaged, and

the infrastructure was severely

disrupted.

The kits come in standard,

78-litre containers packed

with more than 60 items

rated essential for survival in

an emergency. The contents

include shelter, bedding, tools,

medical supplies, and tablets

for purifying drinking water.

The container itself can be

used to hold and treat the

water.

With a little ingenuity, families

can create a shelter from

tarpaulins using the hammer

and nails provided. There’s

a folding shovel for digging

trenches. Food is key, so

there’s fishing gear, a hunting

knife, and cooking equipment.

Basic clothing and bed covers

are included to help keep

disaster victims warm, and a

medical pack, including items

such as soap, painkillers and

antiseptic cream, provides

the basics for the important

task of treating minor injuries

and maintaining hygiene and

health.

Whenever the kits are used,

Rotary seeks feedback from

partner organisations, governments,

and the communities

that received the boxes. This

information is used to regularly

review the contents of

the emergency response kits

(known in the Rotary world as

ERKs).

Ferrymead Rotary and

its international projects,

Tovgaard on 384 9485 or

This plan belongs to the community

and you can help turn it

into reality.

A great start is the celebration

to launch the Whaka-Ora

Healthy Harbour plan and

Seaweek with the harbour cleanup

and barbecue on Friday in

Lyttelton at Naval Point and at

the Diamond Harbour and Governors

between 4.30-6.30pm. Everyone

is invited.

The Canterbury earthquakes

had a significant impact on the

communities of Whakaraupo/

Lyttelton Harbour.

The port itself was severely

damaged during the earthquakes

and part of the Lyttelton Port

Company recovery plan in 2015

was a commitment to create a

catchment management plan for

the future of the harbour.

This launch is also very timely

NEW: The Whaka-Ora

Healthy Harbour plan and

project is being launched

at Rapaki Marae at 1.30pm

today.

with the recent blessing that took

place for construction work to

begin on stage two of four of the

wastewater pipelines around the

harbour basin to converge and

go via the tunnel to the Bromley

treatment plant rather than into

the harbour.

Christchurch is bouncing back

– our growth and population are

up from pre-earthquake figures.

I am looking forward to seeing

the result of the census that was

completed last night, particularly

as there were many new questions.

The census is compulsory as

it provides information about

our national demographics and

plays an important part in the

calculation of resource allocation

to local service providers.

Have a great week.

FERRYMEAD

The Ruin

by Dervla McTiernan

Cormac Reilly is about to reopen the case that took him

twenty years to forget ... The most addictive crime fiction debut

of 2018.

Galway 1993: Young Garda Cormac Reilly is called to a scene

he will never forget. Two silent, neglected children - fifteen-year-old

Maude and five-year-old Jack - are waiting for him at a crumbling

country house. Upstairs, their mother lies dead.

Twenty years later, a body surfaces in the icy black waters of the River Corrib. At first it

looks like an open-and-shut case, but then doubt is cast on the investigation’s findings -

and the integrity of the police. Cormac is thrown back into the cold case that has haunted

him his entire career - what links the two deaths, two decades apart? As he navigates his

way through police politics and the ghosts of the past, Detective Reilly uncovers shocking

secrets and finds himself questioning who among his colleagues he can trust. What

really did happen in that house where he first met Maude and Jack? The Ruin draws us

deep into the dark heart of Ireland and asks who will protect you when the authorities

can’t - or won’t.

Birthright

by Fiona Lowe

Australian author Fiona Lowe returns with a juicy family saga, set against the backdrop

of Victoria’s high country, about unforgettable characters tangled together by a wealthy

inheritance, secrets and betrayal. Is an inheritance a privilege or a right?

Does it show love? Margaret, the matriarch of the wealthy Jamieson family, has always been

as tight–fisted with the family money as she is with her affection. Her eldest daughter, Sarah,

is successful in her own right as a wife, mother and part owner of a gourmet food empire.

But it’s not enough to impress her mother. Always in the shadow cast by the golden glow

of her younger brother, Sarah feels compelled to meet Margaret’s every demand to earn her

love. Does it give security? After a poverty–stricken childhood, Anita has claimed the social

status she’s worked so hard to achieve by marrying Cameron Jamieson. Although they

have a comfortable life, she’s never able to fully relax, fearing everything could change in a

heartbeat.

Or does it mean freedom? Ellie, the youngest, has lived a nomadic and – according to her

siblings – a selfish life, leaving them to care for their ageing mother. For her, freedom means

staying far away from the strings attached to her inheritance, but she needs to consider her

young son’s future as well. As their mother’s health deteriorates, will long–held secrets and

childhood rivalries smash this family into pieces?

An addictive and page–turning story of the relationships between siblings and of deceit,

betrayal and revenge.

Henderson, Hungerford make Rip Curl finals

• By Gordon Findlater

TAYLORS Mistake surfers

Ava Henderson and Estella

Hungerford both featured

in finals at the Rip Curl

GromSearch in New Plymouth.

The two-day event saw New

Zealand’s top young surfing

talent compete with more than

100 entrants, including an

Australian contingent, taking

part in six age-group categories

from under-12 through to under-

17s.

In the under-17 girls category,

Hungerford showed plenty of

promise early. She scored a 9.57

to win her semi-final ahead of

Gisborne’s Saffi Vette. However,

Vette came up with the goods in

the final to win with a score of

10.33.

Hungerford’s 7.97 in the final

was good enough for fourth.

Christchurch’s Tegan Bishop

finished second with 9.47.

Henderson came agonisingly

close in the under-14 girls

final. Her score of 8.7 was good

enough for second behind

Auckland’s Alice Westerkamp

who won with a ride of 8.83.

Christchurch’s Myka Black

also came close to trumping

the North Island riders in the

under-17 boys category. Black

produced some great rides in the

heats, quarter-finals and semifinals

to qualify for the final.

His score of 10.07 in the final

saw him finish second behind

Hamilton’s Caleb Cutmore.

The winners of the under-17

boys and girls divisions qualified

to represent New Zealand at the

International GromSearch Final

being held in May.

White Ferns visit Heathcote club

• By Gordon Findlater

WHITE FERNS players visited

the Heathcote Cricket Club on

Friday ahead of their one-day

series against the West Indies.

A group of Ferns players ran a

coaching seminar with the club’s

junior girls team and also mixed

with the group of about 90 kids

who play cricket at the club every

Friday over Summer.

“Having some international

players come down was great for

the girls,” said club president Ken

Lomax.

The Friday night community

event is run by the club’s junior

cricket captain Matthew House,

with eight volunteers from the

club introducing children aged

from five to eight to cricket before

they begin playing Saturday

games. “It’s a great event. We

get between 80-90 kids every

week who come down with their

parents to enjoy cricket,” said

Lomax.

Heathcote’s senior team recently

won the metro A one-day

competition and is currently

leading the two-day competition

with one-and-a-half rounds

remaining.

VISITORS: Kids from the

Heathcote Cricket Club met

members of the White Ferns

on Friday night.

Hydrate to elevate

We all know drinking water is important, but the

majority of us simply don’t drink enough even though

we know it makes us feel great when we do. We look

at the benefits and motivate you to drink more with a

few tips on how to make it just a little more palatable.

With over a quarter of Kiwis consuming

less than two glasses of water a day and only

5% drinking more than the recommended

eight, the message obviously hasn’t hit

home on the importance of hydrating our

body.

A recent survey conducted by

SodaStream found that Cantabrians are

particularly guilty when it comes to their

water intake.

With 82% drinking less than six glasses

of water a day, but with over 85% admitting

they feel healthier when they drink more

water, something needs to be done to

bridge the gap in terms of what we know

to be true and what we’re actually doing

about it.

This same survey revealed that although

41% of us limit how many soft drinks we

consume due to our concerns over sugar

content, the same number of people said

tea or coffee is this their number one drink

of choice.

Some people even believe that the water

consumed in their cup of Joe constitutes

part of their water intake. This is a fallacy.

As caffeine actually dehydrates us, as

does alcohol too, it means we need to

drink even more water to compensate.

Not so surprisingly the reason we don’t

drink nearly enough water is that we

simply forget. Now with apps you can

download direct to your smart phone,

there are no more excuses.

Further studies proved that people who

had a SodaStream machine in their homes

were more likely to drink more water.

In fact, the study showed that people

drank 30% more water.

For those of us who aren’t used

to drinking water like it’s going

out of fashion, there are plenty of ways

to increase the fun factor while still

being healthy.

By simply turning tap water into

sparkling water with a SodaStream

machine and adding a splash of fresh

lemon juice or naturally squeezed fruit

juice, is bound to have a positive impact on

our health and wellbeing.

to us and you

and your friend

will receive a

Live

Q&A:

A first from

Corrections.

Have you ever been interested

in a new career or a specific

job, but haven’t had the

chance to talk to anyone

about it before applying?

Probably, yes.

Here’s your chance to learn more about

a career with Corrections. If you’re

interested in an exciting and rewarding

career as a Corrections Officer, you can join

our Live Q&A event and have your questions

answered by Corrections Officers working

in New Zealand prisons. You will have the

opportunity to ask your questions to the panel

of working Corrections Officers and have them

answered in real time.

Over the last year we’ve held information

evenings in cities and towns across New Zealand.

Next week, for the first time you can have all

of your questions answered live online from

wherever you are. Our team will be on hand to

share their experiences about working to help

offenders change their lives and answer any

questions that you and your whanau might have.

Our Live Q&A event will make sure that you

have the information you need to decide on

a career with Corrections.

Kahore tetahi o tatou, taea te mahi,

nga mahi e taea o tatou katoa.

Not one of us can do the work as well

as all of us working together.

MEET YULIA

Yulia’s experience and passion for working with

people has ensured her smooth transition into the

role of Corrections Officer at Auckland Region

Women’s Corrections Facility.

“I joined Corrections at the beginning of 2017, I

had previously worked in a range of roles including

early childhood teacher, swimming instructor and

most recently caring for older people and people

living with disabilities.”

“I love working with people, and was looking

for a different challenge. I found the job through

Seek, and researched the role on the Corrections

website. I watched the videos of staff sharing their

experiences, which made me realise this was

something I could do. I dived in, accepted the

challenge, and I’ve never looked back.”

“I love what I do, and I think so many people out

there may not realise just how much impact they

can have building a career here.”

“I will never forget the journey, and where it has

taken me so far. There are a world of opportunities

out there – I can’t wait to see what’s next.”

Yulia McConaghan, Corrections Officer

Deadline Sale: 5pm Friday 23 March 2108

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | open plan kitchen, dining living area | 1 study/play area | 2 carport | 2 off-street parks | Listing ID: 6237

What began life as a 1950s bungalow was

transformed in the 1970s when architecture

in Christchurch was breaking from the

constraints and traditions of the past to

create what is now a truly unique home.

What we have today is an avant-garde

home nestled into the sunny slopes above

Redcliffs. Not only does it bask in sunshine

it enjoys uninterrupted views across the

estuary and up the coastline. The magic of

the setting reflects the magic to be found

indoors. On 3 levels it provides space for

everyone and everything. The main central

floor comprises the entry from the carport

at the front door, open plan kitchen dining

and living, a study/play area, 2 double

bed-rooms which open to a spacious deck

area and a state of the art bathroom. Stairs

descend to a rumpus room/studio which

opens to a paved patio area giving access to

a landscaped contemporary hillside garden.

The upper level provides the main suite

comprising bedroom, en suite and dressing

room and expansive open living space with

floor to ceiling windows. This home exudes

contemporary style with an industrial

minimalist theme.

Open homes Sundays 1.45pm-2.30pm

and Thursdays 7.30pm-8pm.
