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.” •Turn to page 5 • By Sarla Donovan 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. •Turn to page 7 Latest Sumner Listings Call for viewing times 10 Evans Pass Road, Sumner Auction 18 March at 12pm, unless sold prior 25 Menzies Street, Sumner Auction 16 March at 5pm, unless sold prior 1 Finnsarby Place, Sumner Auction 11 March at 12pm, unless sold prior 115 Taylors Mistake Road, Sumner Auction 25 March at 1.30pm, unless sold prior Simon Standeven 0274 304 691 Paula Standeven 027 547 2852 21 Humphreys Drive, Ferrymead | /TheStandevens 20 Hours Free for 3 & 4 yrs old Three age specific rooms plus School prep Teaching room For full information please visit our website Come in for a visit and experience the difference Ph 03 384 9249 108 Port hills Rd, heathcote Valley Lyttelton Tunnel Ferrymead Heritage Park Port Hills Rd Tunnel Rd We are here Bridle Path Rd Martindales Rd
