Fast track

plan for

Redcliffs

School

in spite of

flood

concerns

• By Sarla Donovan

REGENERATE Christchurch

wants to fast track rezoning

Redcliffs Park as a school – in spite

of city council warnings the site

isn’t sustainable

for use as a school

and will require

extra protective

measures within

30 years.

A city council

memorandum

on flood hazards

at the park,

released to the

Edwards

Bay Harbour News under the Local

Government Official Information

and Meetings Act last week, said

the site is “not sustainable to be

used for school purposes in the

medium to long term.”

City council chief executive

Karleen Edwards said yesterday

further protective measures “to

maintain site functionality” are

likely to be needed in 30 years.

from the editor’s desk

MORE DEBATE looms over Redcliffs Park

as the site for a new school (see page 1).

A report shows flooding could be a

problem in the future.

A key part of the report says that the land

is not suitable for a school in the medium

to long term because of estuary tidal surges and other flooding

issues in the future.

Regenerate Christchurch says a school can be built in a way

that will prevent it being flooded. It is looking to fast track

rezoning of the park.

But the report also says protection from the sea will be needed

for the years to come.

Who will pay for that? Ratepayers no doubt.

Great effort from local surfers at the Duke Festival (see page

19).

YACHT CLUB SIGN VANDALS

Signs outside the Akaroa Yacht

Club have been stripped off by

vandals. Commodore Howard

Wilson said the commodore’s

parking sign was removed

this week. It follows the recent

destruction of signs stating the

car park is for yacht club parking

only. Mr Wilson said CCTV

cameras may have captured the

vandals.

NOMINATIONS for the

vacant position representing

the Lyttelton Subdivision of the

board closed yesterday.

Funeral consultant Robyn

Struthers is running under the

Independent Citizens banner;

public sector analyst Tyrone

Fields has been selected by

the Labour-aligned People’s

Choice group, while Whaka-

Paul Dietsche and Lyttelton

resident Ashley Stanbridge are

running independently.

The seat was vacated by

former board chairwoman

Christine Wilson who resigned

for health reasons in February,

triggering a by-election due to

be held on May 16.

Mrs Struthers has lived in

Lyttelton for 14 years. Her

husband Neil was vicar at the

Holy Trinity Anglican Church

when the February 22, 2011,

earthquake struck.

In 2012, the couple opened

Mr Fields, 42, lives with his

young family in Beckenham but

grew up in Lyttelton, where his

parents still live.

He is an active member of the

Labour Party.

Ms Couch-Lewis has lived in

Rapaki for the past 22 years.

She said she is “semi-retired,

but continues to work for her

tribe and hapu at a governance

level.”

Originally from the United

States, Mr Dietsche has been

living in New Zealand for 12

years.

BY-ELECTION: (Clockwise)

Robyn Struthers, Yvette

Couch-Lewis, Paul Dietsche,

Tyrone Fields and Ashley

Stanbridge have all put

their hands up to vie for a

programme.

Mr Stanbridge is a Lyttelton

The future use of Collett’s Corner

NEW RELEASES

The Tattooist of Auschwitz

by Heather Morris

The incredible story of the Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist

and the woman he loved.

Lale Sokolov is well-dressed, a charmer, a ladies man. He is also a Jew.

On the first transport from Slovakia to Auschwitz in 1942, Lale immediately

stands out to his fellow prisoners. In the camp, he is looked up to, looked

out for, and put to work in the privileged position of Tetovierer “the tattooist”

to mark his fellow prisoners, forever. One of them is a young woman, Gita,

who steals his heart at first glance. His life given new purpose, Lale does

his best through the struggle and suffering to use his position for good.

This story, full of beauty and hope, is based on years of interviews author

Heather Morris conducted with real-life Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz-

Birkenau tattooist Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov. It is heart-wrenching, illuminating,

and unforgettable.

The Shepherd’s Hut

by Tim Winton

Jaxie dreads going home. His mum’s dead. The old man bashes him without

mercy, and he wishes he was an orphan. But no one’s ever told Jaxie

Clackton to be careful what he wishes for. In one terrible moment his life is

stripped to little more than what he can carry and how he can keep himself

alive.

There’s just one person left in the world who understands him and what he

still dares to hope for. But to reach her he’ll have to cross the vast saltlands

on a trek that only a dreamer or a fugitive would attempt.

The Shepherd’s Hut is a searing look at what it takes to keep

love and hope alive in a parched and brutal world.

Aging for Beginners

by doug Wilson

The world we know has changed dramatically and what the future might look

like is harder and harder to assess. For those entering the twilight years, this

uncertainty is ever more challenging to navigate. Dr Wilson’s book follows a

set of main principles and navigates a myriad of challenges that may be

difficult for the aging population to face.

The books establishes the following guidelines:

• Assess how you are – your medical;

• Assess your finances;

• Adapt to that – change this, change that, do this, do that – improve your lot.

Go ahead and do that because it’s your life;

• Accept what you have and what cards you have been dealt.

Health, Dr Wilson says, is the factor that needs major consideration. In his

book he discusses the importance of accessing the best possible information

about both physical and mental health.

Lyla: Through My Eyes -

Natural Disaster Zones

by Fleur Beale

Lyla has just started her second year of high school when a magnitude

6.3 earthquake shakes Christchurch to pieces. Devastation is

everywhere. While her police officer mother and trauma nurse father

respond to the disaster, Lyla puts on a brave face, opening their home to

neighbours and leading the community clean-up. But soon she discovers

that it’s not only familiar buildings and landscapes that have vanished -

it’s friends and acquaintances too. As the earth keeps shaking day after

day, can Lyla find a way to cope with her new reality?

UPGRADE: The

Scarborough

playground will

be closed from

May to August

while an

upgrade takes

place.

THE SCARBOROUGH Park

playground will be closed for

upgrade work from early May

in preparation for a spring

opening.

The popular park is getting

a makeover. Old playground

equipment is being replaced

with, among other things, a

mouse wheel, an eagle’s lair with

baskets, a dancing snake rope

swing, a climbing tower, and a

modern take on the classic rocking

horse.

The new playground is part of

a four-month work programme

involving post-earthquake

repairs to the Scarborough clock

tower, the steps outside the

Ocean Cafe and Bar and damaged

underground pipes.

The earthenware pipe which

runs between the cafe and

the wastewater pump station

is damaged and needs to be

replaced.

The city council hopes to minimise

disruption by completing

multiple projects at once during

the winter months.

“By doing so during the playground

digging in the same area twice,”

said city council acting head of

parks Brent Smith.

Scaffolding was installed

around the clock tower last

week. Although the playground

will be closed to the public from

May, the cafe will remain open

with access via the esplanade

walkway.

St Leonards Park, Nicholson

Park, Brownlee Reserve, Starwood

Reserve and Barnett Park

will be available for families in

the area to use while the Scarborough

playground is closed.

TRUCKS travelling through

Lyttelton by night are ferrying

rocks excavated from the hills

above Sumner Rd.

Up to eight trucks last week

began making hourly trips from

the Gollans Bay Quarry below

Evans Pass to a storage site in

Bromley, where they will be kept

for use in city council projects.

The work will continue for up

to 14 weeks. The trips are being

made at night to allow retaining

wall construction work to

continue during the day.

The city council said trucks

will not use engine braking or

reversing alarms and will operate

at low speeds to minimise noise.

Sumner Rd has been closed

to the public since rocks

came tumbling down from

the surrounding cliffs in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

About 100,000 cu m of rock has

been excavated from the slopes as

part of rockfall protection work

during the first stage of a multimillion

dollar project to rebuild

and re-open the road.

The work is estimated to cost

between $40-$60 million and is

jointly funded by the city council

and the New Zealand Transport

Agency, which is contributing

about 80 per cent of the funding.

Rocks moved by night

from Sumner Rd hills

REUSE: Rocks are being

excavated from the hills

above Sumner Rd to be used

on other city council projects.

The rock will be used for

projects such as the coastal

pathway, flood protection work,

and heritage restoration projects,

including the stone facings on

Lyttelton retaining walls.

Using the rocks for other

construction projects made

financial sense, said city council

transport planning and delivery

manager Lynette Ellis.

“This is about sustainability.

Instead of having to buy new rock

and transport it from sources as

far away as Oxford or Akaroa,

this is local rock that has already

been excavated and is being

reused for local projects. It makes

good sense and it’s extremely cost

effective.”

The road was originally due to

open in early 2018 but has been

pushed back a year.

Plan to fast

track Redcliffs

School

•From page 1

The site is considered at risk

of flooding due to rainfall runoff,

and tidal flooding during

extreme tides and storm events,

which “will be exacerbated with

future . . . sea level rise,” the

memorandum said.

It said there were “no plans to

protect the area from sea level

rise so the city council or Government

cannot be relied upon

to mitigate the flooding risk at

any time in the future.”

The city council has agreed

to a land swap which will see it

exchange the park for the former

Redcliffs School site on Main Rd.

But first the park must be rezoned

as a school and Regenerate

Christchurch is seeking to use its

powers to fast track the process.

Regenerate Christchurch has

said the location would be appropriate

as the new school buildings

proposed by the Ministry of

Education would only be in use

“for about 50 years.”

Dr Edwards told Bay Harbour

News the city council’s opinion

of the flooding hazard at the site

remains unchanged. She said its

position would be reiterated in a

submission to Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister

Megan Woods.

IZZY HOULT was three when

she fell in love with ballet.

Her driveway was across

the road from the Little River

Hall where dance teacher Ann

Judson taught little girls dressed

in pink.

“I want to go, I want go,” she

would plead with her mum Jane

Hoult.

But Ms Hoult insisted on

waiting until her daughter was

Izzy is now a national scholar

with the New Zealand School of

Dance in Wellington.

The scholar programme

provides specialist training for

classical ballet students from the

age of 10.

Izzy successfully auditioned in

early November and found out

two weeks later she had been accepted.

It was much earlier than

expected, which led to a spot of

angst for Ms Hoult.

“I was at home and she was at

school and I thought ‘uh-oh, this

isn’t good news, it’s too soon’. So

I opened it and I was reading it

and I read back again and then

started crying and I couldn’t

read it. I was thinking ‘this

definitely says Izzy doesn’t it? It’s

got the right person, it definitely

says Izzy, national scholar?’”

“I was shaking and then I had

to wait all day for her to come

home from school. She was just

so happy she screamed and

screamed.” Only nine dancers

were accepted in her age group

from nearly 30 who applied. Six

are from Wellington and three

from elsewhere in New Zealand.

Being a national scholar

means seven times a year, Izzy

then fly back on Saturday night

It means staying overnight,

but they have found an apartment

close by which is reasonably

priced and has a kitchen.

Nonetheless, costs add up.

Jane helps run an annual

event with the Country Living

Group, but says she’s having to

“get (her) head around a few

more fundraisers.”

“Izzy’s really good at helping

out, whether it’s walking dogs or

selling pinecones or whatever.”

Ms Judson retired from teaching

earlier this year, so between

trips to Wellington, there’s

training four times a week at the

Southern Ballet School.

But all the work is worth it,

Izzy said. “We keep a journal

about our progress and corrections

and we are learning about

our bodies, muscles and how

to keep ourselves and bodies fit

and injury-free. I had the best

time and can’t wait until my

next visit.”

Her dream is to perform with

the national dance company.

There’s been a lot

happening!

Market Comment

What a busy start to the year it has been, and not just the real estate market. Having just

experienced the hottest summer on record, great sporting events such as the current cricket series

between the Black Caps and England, the start of the Super Rugby campaign where we hope to

see the Crusaders defend their championship crown, the Commonwealth Games kicking off on

the Gold Coast in a few weeks as well discussion around the location of a new skate ramp, various

political manoeuvres, University orientations, International Women’s Day, St Patrick’s day and a

myriad of other activities and events that keep us all occupied. It feels like it’s been a great summer!

The real estate market has also gained momentum. Those of you watching the market will have

seen some outstanding property coming to the market for sale coupled by some incredible

marketing campaigns. Even if you are not quite in the market yet it can sometimes be a good

opportunity to see what’s for sale and start building on your knowledge for when the time comes to

buy or sell. You are welcome to come along to any of our open homes or contact one of our licensee

salespeople for a private viewing.

Clean-up groups collect 640kg of rubbish from harbour

• By Sarla Donovan

VOLUNTEERS removed more

than half a tonne of rubbish

from the edges of Lyttelton

Harbour over two hours.

The inaugural Whakaraupo

Lyttelton Harbour clean-up on

March 9 marked the launch

of the Whaka-Ora/Healthy

Harbour plan – a blueprint for

restoring the ecological health of

the harbour.

About 50 people gathered in

Lyttelton, 30 in Governors Bay

and 20 in Diamond Harbour

to help clean tracks, parks and

streets surrounding the harbour.

A separate event was held

earlier in the day by Diamond

Harbour School, with about

150 people helping to clean-up

around Purau.

All up they gathered 640kg

of rubbish, including glass and

plastic bottles, cans, tyres, table

tops and sheets of iron.

Some was recycled and the rest

put into a skip.

The volunteers were afterwards

treated to barbecue provided by

Cashmere Cuisine.

The event was a collaboration

between Environment

Canterbury, Enviroschools and

Conservation Volunteers New

Zealand.

Project officer for CVNZ

Hamish Fairbairn said they decided

broaden the focus beyond

beaches because there was a

“strong likelihood” that rubbish

on roadsides and in parks would

end up in the harbour, “carried

there by rain or wind.”

And it was bird life and fish

that had to cope with the consequences,

said Mr Fairbairn.

A team of eight international

CVNZ volunteers travelled from

Punakaiki to help out. The group

stayed with Ngati wheke at Rapaki

Marae and as well as the harbour

clean-up they helped with gorse

control at Orongomai Reserve.

The Whakaraupo Lyttelton

Harbour clean-up will be held

again next year and Mr Fairbairn

says plans are afoot to

make it “bigger and brighter.”

Jetty ready to face another century

Community

restores part

of history

A 107-YEAR-OLD jetty is

primed for another century of

service at Takamatua Bay.

Supported by the city council,

local residents have driven a

major repair project to save one

of the region’s oldest jetties for

future generations.

The Takamatua Ratepayers’

Association pooled member

resources to rebuild the

earthquake-damaged structure,

aided by the city council’s Banks

Peninsula and Port Hills head

ranger Paul Devlin and engineer

Paul Ferguson.

Association chairman Kevin

Simcock said the restoration of

the jetty was a communityfocused

project.

Local residents put in many

long hours, volunteering their

time and expertise to save the

jetty.

“This project has proven

that city council-community

partnerships are an excellent

way of enhancing community

assets while building community

spirit,” Mr Simcock said.

Mr Devlin said the city council

simply empowered the local

community to work on the

jetty themselves, supporting

the project with materials, and

oversight of health and safety

and design.

“It has been a brilliant

outcome, both for the

Takamatua community and the

city council,” Mr Devlin said.

The jetty was built in 1910 to

ferry cheese from the German

Bay (Takamatua) Cheese Co-op

to Akaroa and further afield.

Initially called German Bay to

reflect the origins of the early

settlers, the name of the area was

changed to Takamatua during

World War I.

It originally cost £175 to build.

For Akaroa resident Jan

Shuttleworth, the recent

reopening marked a special day

in his family’s history.

His grandfather George

Armstrong delivered a speech

at the opening of the jetty on

December 20, 1910.

“My grandfather was mayor of

Akaroa for 23 years, and also on

the cheese co-operative’s board,”

Mr Shuttleworth said.

“The jetty was built by a local

builder to provide a shipping

service from the bay to Akaroa

and beyond as the co-op had

about 15 suppliers, and quite

a big volume of cheese was

being produced. A cutter, the

Deveron, left with the first cargo,

consisting of 187 cases of cheese,

136 loose cheese and 18 bales of

wool.”

Namaste and

Kumusta. Greetings

to the Linwood

Community.

I am very pleased to

be able to report to

the community that 2018 has begun well for

the school. This page shows the wide range

of positive activity that we would expect in a

busy, thriving secondary school.

Our 2018 school year has begun with an

increased school roll, considerably so. This

has resulted in some timetabling challenges

and prompt action to appoint further staff.

Thank you to the students and staff as they

manoeuvre their way round some crowded

classrooms.

2018 also starts with the first full year of our

being in two Kāhui Ako-Communities of

Learning, Tamai – Linwood-Woolston, and

Aupaki – the Bays, Heathcote and Lyttleton.

I have written about Kāhui Ako previously.

They are schools collaborating to ensure that

the student is at the centre of all activity but

not just in the individual school the student is

in at the time, but as the student progresses

from early childhood centres through their

schooling to tertiary and the workplace.

Effective schools and communities have

been doing this for decades, of course, so it

Festival of Nations 2018

Last month, Linwood College was once

again on show - in all its glory. The ‘Festival

of Nations,’ one day event, celebrated the

breadth and richness of cultural heritage

amongst our students. With initial speeches

and a flag parade attended by local MPs,

Poto Williams, Dr Duncan Webb and Ruth

Dyson, the College’s sports' field was

transformed into a vibrant cultural throng of

colour and enthusiasm.

The festival concluded with a Cultural

Evening, a night of spectacular

entertainment, with music and dance

performances by students from around the

world.

is good to have this part of official national

education policy.

As we know, 2018 is our last full year in the

old LHS/LC school buildings. In mid-year

2019, Term 2, Linwood College will shift

off-site for the duration of our re-build to what

will be by then the former Avonside GHS

site. This is a very good thing for us all as we

will not have to live in the middle of a major

building site for what would have been three

years. It takes a year off the building timeline,

from the three years to under two, and this

means a saving of one million dollars. This

saved money does not leave the budget so

we can use as we see fit.

Our community consultation about the new

Linwood College has given us clear direction

and everything that we do is based on this.

We all agree that it is true that buildings

alone do not necessarily improve education

– the relationship with the teacher and the

personalisation of learning are the two key

factors for this – but there is also no doubt

that new, purpose-built buildings and spaces

can contribute hugely to these two factors. It

is Linwood College’s turn.

Finally, I am always keen to meet people, so

if any member of the community wishes to

talk to me about anything, please contact the

office to arrange a time for this to occur. My

door is open.

Mathematics Success

We are very proud of Jeremy

Kyle who received an

‘Excellence’ grade for his NCEA

Level 1 external portfolio. His

body of work had been part of

a year long project around the

theme, ‘My connection with the

world around me.’ Students were

able to interpret this theme into

their own context.

We are proud to congratulate the following students who excelled in their work and achieved

the 10 Numeracy credits required for NCEA as Year 10 students in 2017. They are:

Cory Aberhart, J C Aguilar, Ethan Alderley, April Anderson-Hill, Jessa Arcayera, Kane

Coast to Coast Champions

Last month six of our Linwood College students:

Emmaline Stott, Finn Pierce, Julian Lui, Mapu

Uasi, Kyle Amer and Moahengi Ngauamo

competed as the 'Coast-to-Coast Rangers' in the

annual Coast-to-Coast race.

This intensely challenging race started on the

West Coast's Kumara Beach and finished on the

East Coast at New Brighton Beach.

What an amazing accomplishment it was for

them all to get across the finish line after just six

months of tough training!

We would like to thank all who supported our

team including LC students Aaron Skow, Tane Bradshaw and Alisha Ungerboeck as well as

Jess de Bont and Matt Mark who instigated this amazing experience for the Rangers!

As a past participant, Jess de Bont said, “I'm blown away by these teens. They have pushed

themselves more than many people will in a lifetime and have shown such respect for each

other and for us coaches. They totally inspire me."

Star Activities Day

In early February all Year 9 classes attended an exciting

activity day at The Groynes.

Students participated in team building activities and

climbed high ropes testing their courage to take on new

challenges. It was great to see the students working

together as they got to know one another.

Chilling

This term Level 2 Science students visited the

Antarctic Centre to experience survival in an

extreme environment and to explore how organisms

are able to survive in the extreme cold.

After huddling like Blue Penguins in the chilling

‘Cold Room’ (with a wind-chill factor of -18°C), we

were then escorted to see some real-life rescued

Blue Penguins in action during feeding-time.

To end our adventure, we were introduced to some

very well-trained Siberian Huskies, during which

time we were told about these special dogs that can

survive in such raw weather.

Summit Rd restrictions likely to fail

A BID to restrict vehicles on

Summit Rd at night to prevent

boy racing and anti-social

behaviour is likely to fail.

The city council will consider

a staff recommendation against

banning vehicles from the Port

Hills area between 10pm and

5am at its meeting tomorrow.

After reports of vandalism,

fire, loitering and littering, the

city council carried out public

consultation last year on a proposal

to restrict vehicle access

to parts of the Port Hills road in

a bid to protect the isolated and

ecologically sensitive area.

The restriction

was

proposed for

a stretch of

Summit Rd

from Rapaki

Rd to Gebbies

Pass Rd, and

David East

Worsleys Rd

from Summit

Rd to

Worsleys Track, between 10pm

and 5am on Thursday, Friday,

Saturday and Sunday and on

public holidays. Local residents

would be exempt.

However, a hearings

panel report, which will go

before city councillors at

tomorrow’s meeting, recommends

the city council not go

ahead with the proposal.

The panel considered all submissions,

including those presented

by police and the Summit

Road Protection Authority,

along with a city council staff

report which recommended

the restrictions should not be

approved.

The panel agreed with city

council staff, saying the proposal

would be difficult to enforce.

The report said it could

end up shifting anti-social

behaviour to other areas

where it might present a greater

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

risk to the public.

It would also restrict the

freedom of law-abiding, nighttime

visitors who enjoy the

“night-time scenic (sometimes

romantic) views and isolation of

the Summit Rd.”

Instead the panel, which was

chaired by city councillor David

East, has called for the Port

Hills Management Plan to be

fast tracked, saying it could help

address concerns at Summit Rd

and other roads in the area.

The report also suggests

the city council consider both

lowering the speed limit on

Summit Rd and introducing a

mechanism – such as number

plate recognition technology

– which would potentially

identify drivers for crime

prevention purposes.

It notes that police are willing

Fire rages, homes at risk

App nabs

disability car

park abusers

• By Bridget Rutherford

MORE THAN 100 reports of

people illegally using disability

car parks have been made since a

new app was launched to curb the

problem.

In October the city council’s

Smart Cities programme and

CCS Disability Action launched

Access Aware, allowing anyone to

report people parking in disability

spaces without permits.

It instantly sends a notification

and location to the city council’s

parking enforcement team.

Smart Cities programme manager

Teresa McCallum said since

the app was launched on October

1 there had been 141 “abuse reports,”

with one $150 ticket issued.

“The majority of the abuse

reports we have received are in

private parking spaces where the

council cannot issue infringement

notices.”

Last month, 10 trial sensors

were placed on central city disability

car parks. The sensors

have Bluetooth technology, which

pair with a portable chip given to

those with disability passes. If a

vehicle parks in the spaces without

a chip, enforcement officers

would get a notification.

DOUBLE: Estella Hungerford won two titles at the Duke Festival of Surfing.

PHOTOS: COL / SURF2SURF.COM

Hungerford shines

at Duke Festival

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER SURFERS were

among the contingent of

Christchurch wave riders

to dominate the New

Brighton Duke Festival of

Surfing at the weekend.

Estella Hungerford did

her push for a spot in

the New Zealand junior

surfing team no harm by

winning two titles. She

won the under-16 girls

division with a score

of 12.8 in the final. She

beat out a strong North

Island line-up of Brie

Bennett, Raglan, Natasha

Gouldsbury, Taranaki,

and Georgia Wederell, Mt

Maunganui.

Selectors for the team

were at the event keeping

a watchful eye on surfers

who are in contention for

the New Zealand squad to

compete in the under-16

and under-18 divisions at

the world junior surfing

championships later in the

year.

Hungerford, 15, then

showed her skill on the

longboard to win the

women’s longboard

division. In the final, she

scored 11.1 to beat out

Tegen Bishop, Brittany

Andrews and Minnie

Robberds.

In the men’s longboard

division, Sumner’s Luke

O’Neill dominated the

strong field which included

current national champion

Zen Wallis. O’Neill’s

score in the final of 16.5

saw him win the division

ahead of Wallis in second

and fellow Sumner surfer

Hugh Ritchie in third.

“My strategy was to hug

the pier and try and stay

in the same spot and find

those little right-handers

that run into the pier. That

was about it, hope for the

best really,” said O’Neill.

The result is a reversal

of the 2017 event, in which

Wallis claimed the win

over O’Neill, something

that was not lost on the

22-year-old.

“It’s good to take out

Zen. It’s always good

to have him down here

competing, he pushes

everyone and it is good to

have that top competition

at the event.”

Husband and wife

combo, Alan and Lucy Te

Moananui, dominated the

men’s and women’s standup

paddleboard divisions.

Alan scored a 12.1 in the

men’s final to win in style

ahead of Sam Loader,

Mark Calcutt and Blair

Cooke.

Meanwhile, Lucy won

the women’s final with a

ride of 9.7. She finished

ahead of Amelie Wink,

Averil Phillips and Hanna

Zhionberg.

It was also a successful

outing for mother and

daughter Donna and Ava

Henderson. Ava had a

weekend to remember

by winning the under-14

girls division ahead of

Gouldsbury.

She then battled well

against older competitors

to finish second in the

under-20 girls behind

Brie Bennett of Raglan.

Donna defended her title

in the over 40 women’s

longboard division. She

won the final with a score

of 7.9 ahead of Sarah

Armstrong-Park, Cezanne

Lyons and Phillips.

Andrews took the

honours in the women’s

logger division with a

ride of 6.7 to beat Lili Bay,

Robberds and Lucy Te

Moananui. There was also

success for Jack Tyro in

the under-12 boys division

final. •More sport, p20

At Bolt of Cloth, they make it fun and easy

to make your house your home. A New

Zealand family-owned business, Bolt of

Cloth was started in Christchurch in 2009,

with the owners wanting to bring something

different to the city. The initial idea was

to make unique,

contemporary

designer fabrics

available direct to

the public.

Two years later,

they were nearly

taken out by the

Christchurch

earthquakes of

2011, and the loss of their

premises meant they had to

start again almost from scratch.

However, those difficult times

helped to shape the colourful

and inventive business they

have today.

They stock a

huge range of

contemporary home

furnishings, quilting/

dressmaking fabrics,

giftware and canvases.

You can even design

your own cushions,

curtains, lampshades

or squabs. A friendly team is always on hand

to give you

as much or as little interior design advice as

you need.

Using their custom-made curtains, blinds,

venetians and shutters you can revamp your

home to suit your individual taste, with the

interior design team offering free at-home

and in-store consultations to help with all

your window treatment needs.

Bolt of Cloth employs a team of local

craftspeople, handmaking many of

their products here in New Zealand.

Supporting local artists and designers,

they run a textile design competition

every year. Any New Zealand resident

can enter and

the winning

designs are

then used to

create a limited

edition cushion

collection.

They bring

in unique

homewares

from around

the world, including Finnish design brand

Marimekko, which is known for its iconic

prints and colour.

When you visit a Bolt of Cloth store you will

be blown away by the bright and colourful

atmosphere, and delighted by the beautiful

range of products.

SPORTS

Riders gear up for Le Race

HUNDREDS OF cyclists

will descend into Akaroa

on Saturday when they

complete the iconic 100km

Le Race from Christchurch

to Akaroa.

The strong field will

offer cycling fans along the

route an intriguing mix of

experienced professionals

and the superstars of the

future.

Amongst the favourites

to cross the line first are

race record holder Michael

Vink who will wear the

No. 1 bib. He will face

stiff competition from

Christchurch professional

Daniel Whitehouse. The

featherweight climber is

suited to the steep hills of

Banks Peninsula.

Others to watch out

for will be last year’s

winner Brad Evans, 2017

runner-up Sam Horgan

and experienced head Paul

Odlin.

At 39 years, Odlin may

no longer be a pro rider but

is still considered a genuine

threat. He has lost count in

how many editions of Le

Race he has competed, and

he is another rider with

unfinished business after

leading the race in 2014

before crashing on the final

descent.

RECORDHOLDER: Michael Vink will wear the No.1

bib for Saturday’s Le Race.

“Le Race is a special

event so it’s good to see

so many good local riders

making an effort to be

here,” said Odlin.

In the women’s race,

Kate McIlroy should be

the red-hot favourite,

on the eve of her third

Commonwealth Games. It

will be her first Games on

the bike after previously

competing in the

steeplechase and triathlon.

Unfortunately, Le Race

did not fit the Games

schedule for last year’s

winner Sharlotte Lucas, so

McIlroy on paper should

have too much class for the

rest of the women’s.

Jojo Bauer, younger sister

of Pro Tour rider Jack

Bauer, finished in the top

five last year and will again

be near the front, as well as

Masters World Champion

Jeannie Blackmore.

Behind the elite

riders, hundreds of

recreational riders will

be facing their personal

battles in teams or

individually, on tandems

or mountainbikes, for the

full 100km or the shorter

version, Le Petite, which

finishes in Little River.

Le Race starts in

Cathedral Square at 8am.

Flamingo Boy

by Michael Morpurgo

A stunning new classic from master storyteller Michael

Morpurgo for readers of 9+, in the vein of PRIVATE PEACEFUL

and THE BUTTERFLY LION.

This is a landmark new novel from the nation’s favourite

storyteller, set in the unique landscape of the Camargue in the South

of France during WW2. There, a young autistic boy lives on his parents’

farm among the salt flats, and the flamingos that live there. There are lots of things he

doesn’t understand: but he does know how to heal animals. He loves routine, and music

too: and every week he goes to market with his mother, to ride his special horse on the

town carousel.

But then the Germans come, with their guns, and take the town. A soldier shoots a

flamingo from the sky, and it falls to earth terribly injured. And even worse is to come:

the carousel is damaged, the horses broken. For this vulnerable boy, everything is falling

apart.

Only there’s a kind sergeant among the Germans – a man with a young boy of his own

at home, a man who trained as a carpenter. Between them, perhaps boy and man can

mend what has been broken – and maybe even the whole town…

All The Beautiful Girls

by Elizabeth J Church

The dazzling, powerful story of a gutsy showgirl who tries to conquer her past amongst

the glamour of 1960s Las Vegas – finding unexpected fortune, friendship and love.

In the summer of 1968, Ruby Wilde is the toast of Las Vegas. Showgirl of the Year, in

her feathers and rhinestones, five-inch heels and sky-high headdresses, she mesmerises

audiences from the Tropicana to the Stardust. Ratpackers and movie stars, gamblers and

astronauts vie for her attention and shower her with gifts.

But not so long ago Ruby Wilde was Lily Decker from Kansas: an orphaned girl

determined to dance her way out of her troubled past. When she was eight years old, Lily

survived the car crash that killed her parents and sister. Raised by an aunt who took too

little interest in her and an uncle who took too much, dancing was her solace, and her

escape. When a mysterious benefactor pays for her to attend a local dance academy,

Lily’s talent becomes her ticket to a new life.

Now, as Ruby Wilde, the ultimate Sin City success story, she discovers that the glare of

the spotlight cannot banish the shadows that haunt her. As the years pass and Ruby

continues to search for freedom, for love and, most importantly, herself, she must learn

the difference between what glitters and what is truly gold.

REAL ESTATE

Your Next “As Is, Where Is” Project

122 Major Hornbrook Road, Mt Pleasant - Auction 05 Apr 2018 (No Prior Sale)

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 2 living rooms | 2 car-garage | 2 carports | 3 off-street parks | Listing #FM5392

As we all know location counts when

buying real estate so when buying “as is,

where is” the fact that this home is in a prime

location AND deemed repairable by the

insurance company makes it a real winner!

A four bedroom, two bathroom family

residence; the spacious living is bathed in

sunshine due to the North facing aspect,

while the large kitchen, separate dining/

family room and sunroom to relax in at the

end of the day ensures there is room for all

the family.

Enjoy the summer BBQ’s on the deck

taking in the lovely 728m2 mature section the

home offers. There is ample off-street parking

to go with tandem garage and double carport

that will easily fit a boat or trailer.

With Mt Pleasant School under 400mts

away your kids can walk to this very popular

school, while the home is also on a bus route

and allows for an easy commute into the CBD.

If you are a builder, developer or handyman

after a new repair project then this is essential

viewing. The owners have settled with their

insurance company and now have their future

plans in place so are committed to selling on

auction day. Book your viewing today.

Open Homes: Saturdays, Sundays and

Wednesdays 2:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

See you at the Open Home or for more

information or to arrange a private

viewing contact Chris Moores of Harcourts
