THE WOOLSTON site where

the Skellerup factory operated

for a century is being used by a

scrap metal company.

National Steel is operating

out of the Garlands Rd site

with crushed cars piled up on

the site. Rubber goods maker

Skellerup moved out in 2016 to

a new $60 million premises in

Wigram.

It had operated at the

Woolston site for a century. But

its buildings were damaged in

He said there had been some

about the potential noise the site

would generate.

But he said it was an

industrial area, so there would

likely be few restrictions.

Community

raises

$15,000

for family

of sick child

• By Sophie Cornish

A SOUTH New Brighton boy who

was left unable to blink, swallow,

move or talk as a result of a brain

tumour has had around $15,000

fundraised for him in an art auction

on Friday night.

Connor Duncan-Caley, 8, was

diagnosed with the tumour last

June and the ‘Jedi’s New Hope’ art

auction was organised by the community

to fundraise for him and his

family.

His father, Mark, recently lost his

job when the company went into

liquidation, and the earthquakedamaged

house they brought ‘as is,

where is’ is now subject to insurance

issues.

More than 160 guests attended

the event where 78 donated pieces

of artwork were auctioned off on

Friday at Fiksate Gallery in New

Brighton Mall.

Ten pieces went to live auction

and the rest were sold through silent

auction.

Auction organiser Maureen Taane

said they are “super stoked” and

“delighted” with how the event

went.

“We couldn’t have wish for a better

night, it was a wonderful, lovefilled

beautiful community event,”

she said. Mr Duncan-Caley said his

family were blown away by the auction.

THERE’S BEEN a huge amount of interest

over the plight of the Duncan-Caley family

since we ran our article earlier this month.

They’ve been dealt a number of very

poor hands – an ill child, dad made

redundant and ongoing earthquake repair

issues on their house. But the community has rallied as all

good communities do and an art auction on Friday night raised

$15,000 for them (see page 1).

By all accounts it was a great night and the organisers and

those who donated art should be feeling pretty good about

themselves.

Interesting new use of the old Skellerup plant (page 1).

It’s a huge sprawling place where I worked during my school

holidays. Long time ago, but great times.

Inquiry into horrific dog bashing

• By Bridget Rutherford

INVESTIGATIONS are under

way after a Spreydon family’s

american staffordshire was

allegedly bashed to death with a

brick and drowned after he got

out of their backyard.

Greta Houghton said her

family was devastated their dog

Bruno had to be put down after

the attack in Centennial Park

near the Pioneer Recreation and

Sport Centre on March 9.

“His brains were hanging out,”

she said.

“The vet actually said they had

never seen a head so swollen.”

What occurred in the lead up

to the attack has not yet been

confirmed, but police attended

after reports two dogs were fighting

and a person had been bitten.

Police took Bruno to the vet

and referred the incident onto

the city council’s animal control

team, which is investigating.

The SPCA has also launched an

investigation.

Miss Houghton said Bruno got

out of their backyard at about

5pm and they were out looking

for him 5-10min later.

“At 7pm, my mum got a call

from the vet’s saying ‘we have

Bruno here, we need you to come

here’.”

Miss Houghton said Bruno

A police spokeswoman said

they received a call just after 6pm

reporting two dogs were fighting

in Centennial Park.

“One person was reportedly

bitten by one of the dogs, receiving

cuts to their arms.”

She said an ambulance was

advised. “The dog was injured

as a result of the incident, police

took it to a vet, and the dog was

subsequently put down.”

She said police spoke with witnesses

and the matter had been

referred to the city council and

SPCA.

“For that reason, it would not

be appropriate for police to comment

further.”

Miss Houghton said she could

not believe Bruno would attack

another dog or person.

“He was a very friendly dog,

he wouldn’t hurt a soul. The only

time he would growl back was if

a dog had growled at him.”

City council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston said:

“The council has received a complaint

relating to this alleged dog

attack and this matter is in the

early stages of the investigation

and ongoing.”

An SPCA spokeswoman said

the investigation was in its early

stages and it was gathering information.

“But we would also like to

appeal to anyone who witnessed

the incident or who has any

information to please give us a

call.”

AUCTION TIME: Maureen Taane

FAMILY: Connor’s dad, Mark Duncan-Caley,

with his daughters, Madden, 6, and Murphy, 2.

Community auction for family raises $15k

•From page 1

Said Mr Duncan-Caley: “I

really don’t have a word for it

– (I’m) really emotional to see

how the community has come

together.”

“A lot of those people don’t

know us and they’ve opened up

their hearts,” he said.

Mr Duncan-Caley said Connor

was also in shock about the

auction.

“He’s completely lit up with all

the support.”

SMILE: Connor could not attend the auction but created a video to thank his supporters which was shown at

the event on Friday night in which 78 pieces of art were sold off.

Connor is currently living in

Auckland at The Wilson Centre,

a rehabilitation facility.

The money raised from the

auction will fund the family’s life

going forward.

While Connor could not

attend the auction, Mr Duncan-

Caley did, along with his younger

sisters Murphy and Madden.

Both sets of grandparents,

uncles, aunties and cousins also

attended the auction.

Connor was able to send a

message through video, which

was played at the event. Ms

Taane described it as “very moving.”

The auction was called ‘Jedi’s

New Hope” because of Connor’s

obsession with Star Wars.

Knights Stream skate park

work to start next month

WORK ON the Knights Stream

skate park will start in just a few

weeks after resource consent was

granted for the project.

The tender was won by Hunter

Civil, and with consent approved,

construction work will

start next month. The $350,000

park is due for completion by

the end of July, ready for use in

spring.

Knights Stream is one of

two skate and recreation

parks designed for beginner to

intermediate level riders planned

for the Halswell area.

A decision on resource consent

for the other site at Halswell

Domain is still pending.

City council head of Parks

Brent Smith said after a lengthy

planning process, it is very satisfying

that work is about to start

at Knights Stream.

“We know there are a lot of

young people in the local community

who are very eager to get

out and use these parks so we’re

keen to see them built as speedily

as possible.”

The design for the Knights

Stream Sports Park skate and

recreation area includes:

•Skate elements such as quarter

pipes, timber post skate elements,

flow bowl, pump bump,

bank and stair set up with china

bank.

• A flat open space with street

skate elements.

• Seating around the facility

and shade shelter.

Church Bay retail complex

about to seek consent

A RESOURCE consent

application for a proposed retail

complex in Church Bay will

be lodged with the city council

within the next few weeks, a

spokeswoman for planning

consultancy Envivo said on

Monday.

Spence Developments pushed

back the project – originally

proposed as a supermarket and

111-space car park, cafe, cinema

and four shops – by several

months after the community

reacted to the look and size of the

Marine Drive development.

The group had planned to

lodge the resource consent

before Christmas but this was

delayed following some residents’

misgivings about the car park

size, the tilt-slab construction,

and the proposed access points

to the complex. Corrugated iron,

timber or stone were suggested

as alternatives to the proposed

construction materials.

Envivo spokeswoman Pia Jackson

said she wasn’t authorised to

say whether the original plans

had been altered in response to

the community’s concerns.

UPGRADE: The Scarborough playground will be closed from May to August while an upgrade

takes place.

Scarborough playground

closing in May for upgrade

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

renewal, we can avoid

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.

The work will continue for up

made at night to allow retaining

continue during the day.

The city council said trucks

will not use engine braking or

at low speeds to minimise noise.

The rock will be used for

Using the rocks for other

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.”

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 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.

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.

Casino team takes out

rescue chopper challenge

TEAMS FROM businesses

across the city assembled with

one mission – to raise money for

the Westpac rescue helicopters.

They were challenged to a

gruelling day of push-ups, an

obstacle course and a first aid test

during the Air Rescue Summer

Crew Challenge.

The Christchurch Casino team

took out the title for the second

year in a row – raising more than

$12,000 for the charity.

“The teams left nothing on the

field this year, it was extremely

competitive,” Rick Knight, crew

chief said.

“It was amazing to see the

Casino take the cup for the second

year running; they worked

together as a team and fought to

the end.”

The day started with a goal

of raising $70,000, which was

cracked with $70,721.91 raised

by the 22 competing teams. That

will fund 14 lifesaving air rescue

trips.

WINNER: The

Christchurch

Casino team

raised more

than $12,000

for Westpac Air

Rescue.

“It really does make a

difference. It has been a very

busy time for the crew,

especially at weekends where

they can attend back-to-back

missions,” Air Rescue chief

executive Christine Prince

said.

Christchurch Casino raised

$12,815, Mortlock McCormack

Law came in second raising

$10,479.60, and in third was

the Commodore Hotel with

$7070.80.

Pupils were required to

the theme ‘into the future’.

“The standard of the 11

garden exhibits from the

extremely high and the judges

were amazed at their quality,”

said Canterbury Horticultural

Society communications officer

Emma Velde.

The team from Linwood Ave

created an Alienopoly garden,

which considered a future

in which aliens take over the

earth.

Report on bus lounge safety too late

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Emily O’Connell

RECOMMENDATIONS in

a new report on anti-social

behaviour at the Riccarton bus

lounge may have come too late.

That’s because bad behaviour

in and around the lounge has

decreased.

The city council’s crime

prevention through

environmental

design report,

commissioned

in September

last year, will be

discussed today

by the Halswell-

Hornby-

Riccarton

Helen

Community

Board.

It makes 11

Broughton

recommendations to improve

the safety of people using the

lounge and surrounding area.

Community board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton

is aware youth issues have

decreased but says it’s

about making the area safer

“regardless.”

The lounge, on the corner of

Riccarton Rd and Division St,

has been plagued by youth issues

since it opened in December

ISSUES: A report outlining 11 recommendations to make the

Riccarton bus lounge safer may have come too late as youth

issues in the area have decreased.

2015. Riccarton Community

Constable Aaron Thorn told

Southern View on Friday the

only issue at the bus lounge had

been beggars harassing pedestrians.

Mrs Broughton hopes the

board can implement some of

the recommendations but says

funding could be an issue. She

said the decrease in anti-social

behaviour could make it less of a

funding priority.

The report also shows a decrease

in victimisations in the

aera over the past two years. In

2015 there were 356 incidents of

victimisation around Westfield

Report recommendations:

1. Turn the vacant cafe space

at the Riccarton Bus Lounge

into an information centre or

security staff area.

2. A new panning CCTV

camera on the east side

of Division St facing the

intersection with Riccarton

Rd and panning to Westfield

Riccarton entrance.

3. A new panning CCTV

camera facing west, to be

installed under the canopy

above Riccarton Rd entrance

of the bus lounge.

4. All footage from CCTV

cameras to be recorded for

a period of time, and a sign

indicating that footage is being

recorded to be displayed to

the public as a deterrent.

5. An additional CCTV display

monitor in the window of the

bus lounge facing Division St.

6. Bus lounge security staff

to be given access to recorded

footage and the panning

Riccarton, the bus lounge and

Division St.

This decreased last year to 345.

The reports says “trends indicate

higher reported incidents over

the mid to late afternoons of

weekdays and Saturdays.”

The report found continued

controls so they can assist

police.

7. An external water tap

outside the second bus lounge

on Riccarton Rd.

8. Maintain ongoing

engagement with Westfield

Riccarton owners and

managers in terms of creating

a safer environment.

9. Maintain ongoing

engagement with the owner

of the vacant building adjacent

the second bus lounge to

ensure tagging is removed and

the area is safe and clean.

10. A further review should

be undertaken at key stages of

post-construction such as six

months and one year.

11. Wider crime prevention

solutions are likely to be

more effective if undertaken

in partnership with local

communities, businesses,

churches, service organisations

and emergency services.

engagement between police,

security staff, beggars and bus

lounge users has proved successful

in reducing the number and

severity of incidents.

The community board will

now decide what its next steps

will be.

Community fruit tree ‘bank’ mooted

• By Sarla Donovan

SUMNER MAN Keith Hay wants

to establish a ‘bank’ of heritage

stone fruit trees in the suburb.

Mr Hay is a member of the Sumner

Community Gardens, which

in the winter of 2014 planted a

‘food forest’ in the grounds of

Van Asch Deaf Education Centre,

where the old laundry block was.

The forest idea involves planting

in layers, from larger trees like

pear and plum, down to smaller

dwarf varieties and bushes such as

gooseberry, raspberry and currant.

After seven years, the forest

should become self-sustaining,

said co-ordinator Kathryn Newbery.

Mr Hay wasn’t there for the original

plantings but has since moved

into the suburb from Opawa and is

particularly interested in the fruit

trees.

He and his wife had a small

orchard in Opawa Rd and he grew

up on his parents Ian and Evelyn’s

Horotane Valley orchard during

the 1950s and ’60s.

Many of the commercial

varieties they grew have since

disappeared, and he is keen to reestablish

them.

This involves sourcing bud wood

or grafting wood from plum trees

and apricot trees – particularly

those grown commercially or

locally in Horotane Valley and

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.”

Ara Institute of Canterbury

automotive tutor Garry Kilday

said the restorations, which were

undertaken by Christchurch

Men’s Prison inmates, were part

of a course based at the prison.

Mr Kilday contacted the

museum and arranged to restore

the tractor and buggy. He said

prisoners worked on the projects

for seven months and found it

challenging but rewarding.

“You can sort of watch the light

turn on with them and they suddenly

realise that they can do this

sort of stuff,” Mr Kilday said.

He said prisoners will continue

to restore vehicles for the museum.

The tractor is now being

used by museum staff and the

EASTER IS always a special

time for St Peter’s Anglican

Church in Upper Riccarton.

But this year will prove even

more special as it marks two

significant occasions – its 160 th

anniversary and the turning of

the first sod on the site where

the church’s restoration will

begin later in the year.

St Peter’s will celebrate its

birthday and pay homage to

the vital role it has played in the

lives of Cantabrians on Easter

Sunday.

In a tribute to this special occasion,

160 candles will be lit by

parishioners, special guests and

members of the St Peter’s community

at the 9.30am service.

St Peter’s is also a Group

I, Category II heritage listed

building that stands proudly on

a site that is a landmark, marking

the western entrance to the

centre of Christchurch.

The church was badly damaged

in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake which has limited

their ability to support the community

as it has done in the

past.

This is why the church is

excited to take the first step in

the physical journey of their restoration

by turning the first sod

on the site in preparation for

works to begin later in the year.

The church has been actively

years to allow for a restoration

community with great care.

The new designs include a

large gathering space that will

provide a much-needed social

area. Works also include the

creation of essential amenities

including toilets, rest rooms, a

kitchenette, break-out spaces

and additional social areas. The

design also allows St Peter’s

Cashmere makes history

• By Gordon Findlater

DOMINANT: Cashmere retained the Canterbury men’s club title for a fifth straight year.

CASHMERE’S PREMIER men’s

team made history on Saturday

when they won the Canterbury

Tennis club title for a record fifth

straight year.

The squad of brothers James,

Matt and Tim Meredith, brothers

Tim and Johnny McHarg,

and Harry Weeds and Matt

Grant went undefeated through

the competition and defeated

Elmwood 15-3 on points in the

final on Saturday.

“It was a great day for the

club,” said James Meredith.

“The Elmwood guys are a

great bunch. They came out and

celebrated with us afterwards.

I’m not sure I could do the same

if it was the other way around,”

he joked.

The tie was far closer than the

final scoreline reads. James Meredith

and Grant won their top

doubles match against Hayden

Joblin and Jack Tiller 6-4, 6-4.

Cashmere also claimed the bottom

doubles in straight sets 7-6,

6-2.

The pair of Matt Meredith

and Weeds faced four set points,

down 4-5 in the opening set

against brothers Elliot and Lawrence

Darling.

Meredith and Weeds fought off

the four set points to eventually

win the first set, which proved

crucial going into the singles.

In the top singles match, James

Meredith produces a serve and

ball striking masterclass to

breeze past Joblin 6-0, 6-2. This

meant that Cashmere needed

to win just one set from the

remaining singles ties to claim

the title.

However, Elmwood still had

a glimmer of hope by holding

SPORTS

the early advantage in all three

remaining matches.

The title was secured when

Weeds recovered from losing

the first set 0-6 to James Watt.

Following a pep talk from Tim

Meredith, Weeds found his game

to win the final two sets 6-3, 6-2.

“Tim reassured me not to panic

after the first set. James played

amazing in the first set. I knew I

just had to stay on court as long

as I could and try to grind something

out,” said Weeds.

Cashmere put the icing on

the cake on Sunday when their

division one men’s and division

two women’s teams both won

titles.

The men’s division one final

was also played against Elmwood

and contained three players who

turned out on Saturday in the

form of Tiller, Weeds and Grant.

The match was as tight as they

come with the result found on

a count back of games 59-52 to

Cashmere after both teams won

three matches and seven sets.

National titles for Rangi Ruru triathletes

TWO YEAR 8 Rangi Ruru Girls’

School pupils have taken out

national titles in the New Zealand

schools triathlon championships.

Lily Greenwood won the

under-12 girls age-group and

then she and Milly Gallagher

combined with two pupils from

Medbury to win the 2018 NZS

under-12 tag team triathlon.

The championships took place

on Rabbit Island, Nelson, last

Monday and Tuesday, with hundreds

of competitors from around

the country taking part.

The tag team event saw each

member complete a shortened

individual triathlon, before tagging

the next member to complete

their section. Tagging means

passing a timing chip on.

Rangi Ruru head of sport Jo

Fogarty said the Rangi/Medbury

combined team was incredibly

strong, winning the under-12s

section by more than 6min.

“The girls have credited Rangi

coach Mark Cotham’s wind training

sessions with helping their

competitiveness in this section,”

she said.

Lily’s mum Liz Greenwood said

her daughter loves the sport as it

provides variety with the three

disciplines.

“You need to be good at a mix

of sports, which Lily is. Her goal is

to be able to join the Canterbury

Tri Academy (open to 14-yearsplus)

and then compete for New

Zealand in age group events later

in high school. Andrea Hewitt is

her idol who she often sees training

at Jellie Park.”

Images close to former seaman’s heart

• By Sarla Donovan

EIGHTY seven-year-old

John Fenton has laminated

photographs of steamships

including some he worked on

in the 1950s and 1960s and

has created intricate, knotted

macrame frames for them.

He’s hoping to exhibit the images

at the Lyttelton Information

Centre, as a fundraiser for the

rebuild of Lyttelton Museum of

which he is a life member.

The photographs come from

John Farquar’s book Union Fleet

1875-1975 which details the

history of the Union Steamship

Company.

Mr Fenton first went to sea for

them in 1949 as a deck boy on

the TES Wahine, working the

daily steamer-express sailing between

Lyttelton and Wellington.

This was the first Wahine, not

the one that foundered and sank

in Wellington Harbour in 1968.

He stayed with the Union

Steamship Company for 14

years, graduating from deck boy

to able seaman and boatswain.

Always good with his hands,

he taught himself macrame and

also makes fancy bell ropes for

ships; one of the only people

remaining who makes them. He

still does this for Canterbury

Museum.

Mr Fenton and his wife Kitty

have lived in Sumner for 55 years,

raising three children there.

But his is actually one of the

oldest families from over the

hill in Lyttelton. His greatgrandfather

was born there and

his great-grandmother “Nanny

Fenton” had 13 children who

almost all married in Lyttelton,

including his own father Albert.

After leaving school in 1945,

Mr Fenton worked in an office

job but found it stifling and

threw it in after four years.

“I couldn’t stand the office; the

collar and tie was choking me. I

followed my dad out to sea. He

was a cook and steward on the

old Canopus that used to run

from Westport and Greymouth

to Lyttelton with coal.”

Upon marrying his wife Kitty,

Mr Fenton gave up the sea, taking

a job onshore in the rigging

loft at Lyttelton Port.

It was a deliberate choice,

having seen “too many fellas not

sending money home and going

on the booze. I thought well

that’s not for me.”

They share a keen interest in

history, as Mrs Fenton works

at the Sumner Museum several

times a week. Mr Fenton created

the knot board that is displayed

there, showing the many different

types.

And they’re both life members

of the Karamea Museum – that’s

where Mrs Fenton comes from.

Of the 20 or so of the steamship

photographs, Mr Fenton

has now completed frames for

about 16 and he plans to gift

them to Lyttelton Museum.

The photographs were originally published in the book The

Union Fleet, by Ian Farquhar. The Korowai (left) was the last

ship he worked on.

His father Owen still races, and

“It is been my lifelong dream to

Motorsport is hard on the

dream would not be possible.

“We definitely couldn’t do it

without our sponsors, Trident

Hornby Panthers coming home

• By Eddy Bramley

THE HORNBY Rugby League

Club will return to an improved

home ground this season thanks

to renovations by the city

council.

The Panthers will return to

Leslie Park for the start of the

season after major upgrades to

establish a high-quality sports

turf surface and automatic

irrigation system forced them to

play elsewhere last year.

The city council started a

multi-million dollar irrigation

and drainage project on

eight sports grounds around

Christchurch at the beginning of

last year. Many were expected to

be completed before the end of

the winter sports season, but an

extremely wet winter had caused

delays.

Panthers president Brent

Tomlinson estimated that

playing a whole season away

from home had cut the club’s

revenue stream by 66 percent.

“The life blood of any football

club is your home games. It’s

your raffles, bar-takings and the

atmosphere in the clubrooms on

match day,“ he said.

“Not having that made things

really difficult.”

Hornby had moved trainings

and home games to Branston

Park where insufficient floodlighting

often meant that players

had to resort to using their car

headlights to light the ground.

Mr Tomlinson said participation

rates in the lower age group

levels had diminished as a result

of the city council upgrades.

“Usually, Leslie Park would

be packed with kids, so many

you couldn’t fit them on the

field. Sending everyone down to

Branston, where there’s no lights,

severely impacted the numbers

because they couldn’t come

along as late.”

In spite of the challenges, Mr

Tomlinson said all of the club’s

sides from the 14 th grade to the

seniors went on to make the finals.

“We’re really proud of that”.

City council neighbourhood

and sports parks operations

manager Al Hardy said

Christchurch sports grounds had

been deprioritised immediately

after the earthquakes.

However, funding from

the city council’s sports fields

capacity programme and its

annual summer sports field

renovations fund had now been

combined to “attack” sports

fields in Christchurch.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said its

primary objective for the

upgrades was to support

Christchurch community sport

by ensuring all teams had good

quality grounds to play on which

lasted the whole season.

“These upgrades will help the

grounds stand up to the longer

playing seasons and increasing

demand that we’re seeing now.

We’re looking forward to having

some really high-quality sports

fields out there for our teams and

their supporters to enjoy.”

Easter

Church Services Advertising

Easter is both the most sombre and joyful time in the

Christian calendar, calling believers to remember the

crucifixion of Christ and His resurrection. Its date changes

each year, making it a ‘moveable feast.’ The Easter story

lies at the heart of the Christian faith and its importance is

celebrated with special celebrations. But just what does it all

mean?

The week leading up to Easter Sunday is Holy Week

which starts with Palm Sunday, commemorating Jesus’

arrival into Jerusalem. It is marked in many churches by

giving palm fronds, or a local equivalent like flax, which

represents the way He was welcomed and revered.

Maundy Thursday, or Holy Thursday, remembers the Last

Supper where the first Holy Communion was established

and is a fundamental feature of many Christian services

2,000 years later. The day also recognises Jesus’ betrayal,

arrest and trial and is marked in Christian churches by

services of foot-washing and the stripping of alters.

Feature

A moveable feast that is

much more than chocolate

That is followed by Good Friday, the date on which

Jesus Christ was executed by crucifixion and the markings

on the hot cross buns we all enjoy are representative

of that. As well as being a public holiday, it is a solemn

acknowledgement of the horrific death that ultimately led

to the establishment of the Christian faith. Catholics and

Anglicans alike commemorate the events of Good Friday in

the Stations of the Cross, the church bells are not rung and

alters remain bare.

Holy Week concludes with Easter Sunday, the most

significant celebration in the Christian calendar and a

time to rejoice. It celebrates Christ’s resurrection and the

triumph of good over evil. Christians across Christchurch

will be attending church services and it is the day when

arguably everyone’s favourite part of Easter – chocolate eggs

– are given. So, when you are enjoying your Easter Eggs this

year, take some time to reflect on the true meaning behind

Holy Week.

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High

School has had one of its most

successful Maadi Cup rowing

regattas ever.

The under-15 eight (right)

won silver and the under-16

quad won bronze in the national

finals on Lake Ruataniwha,

Twizel, at the weekend.

SBHS head of rowing Rob

Wilson-Pyne said in spite of

not winning gold, the regatta

was “highly successful.”

“Medal-wise, we have won

similar numbers, we have

won two medals before. But

we feel this is one of our most

successful Maadi’s because

we are looking at building a

strong talent pool for future

years.”

“For our under-15 and

under-16 rowers to be

performing at such a high level

bodes very well for the future,”

said Wilson-Pyne.

The under-15 eight fell short

in their final to Hamilton

Boys’ High School.

The team qualified for the

national final in their heat.

“The final was a classic

North Island v South Island

showdown,” said Wilson-Pyne.

“We (the under-15 eight)

pushed Hamilton Boys, who

have been the perennial

champions of that for over the

decade. It is really a testimony

to the work of the coaching

staff and the kids,” said

Wilson-Pyne.

“Although our boys fell

slightly short of winning it,

they put in a hell of a fight and

that’s what we are all about.”

The team was made up of

Lucas MacDonald, Cameron

Maughan, Brodie Barsby, Jack

Hearn, Cameron McConchie,

Adam Chapman, Elliot

Stanley, Matthew Sudlow and

cox Joel Coleman.

The under-16 quad which

won bronze featured Scott

Shackleton, Cameron

Maughan, Jack Hearn (boat),

Matthew Smith and cox Joel

Coleman.

Two of the boys Cameron

and Jack were part of the crew

who narrowly escaped injury

in January this year, when a

30m tree fell on it’s boat during

training on the Avon River.

The team raced with a

replacement boat after theirs

was written-off following the

incident.

Wilson-Pyne said the

boys were thrilled with their

performance.

“We have a philosophy that

when a boat goes out there

it represents everyone in the

squad. All of the team are

thrilled that the boys have

gotten these medals.

“They have all played their

part through-out the season

to get those boats where they

were at,” he said.

Rowing captain Alex Cartwright

was also selected to trial

for a spot in a Rowing New

Zealand South Island development

team.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Confidence

returns with a

Lovebite smile

Dawn, from Pukekohe in Auckland,

couldn’t be more pleased with her new

Lovebite dentures, made by internationally

renowned clinical dental technician,

Richard Greenlees, which have restored

the look of her natural smile, and given

her considerable confidence.

“When we started the process, Richard

asked me to bring in some photographs

of my natural teeth, and put a lot of time

into recreating the exact look. My new

dentures are so much better than the old

sets I’ve had over the last 17 years. I’m

very happy.”

Dawn, who is previously from

Christchurch, flew down from Auckland

weekly over five weeks for consultations

with Richard, and found him to be a ‘good

guy’ to deal with.

“He is very accommodating and easy

going. It was also great to deal directly

with the person making my dentures.

This was a much better process than with

previous dentures, where I had to pretty

much go with what I was given whether

I liked them or not. Richard was very

patient and is fussy with his work. He

made my teeth look so natural, real, and

a little bit aged, not like the sparkly white

dentures everyone else has.”

Dawn says the return of her confidence

is one of the biggest pluses of her new

Lovebite dentures.

“Losing your teeth is not a nice thing

to go through, and can make you feel

like you’ve lost your personality. My new

dentures have recreated my natural look

and brought my confidence right back

into line.”

A EXCITING showcase of local artworks,

free workshops, and live music makes up a

fabulous new event taking place this Easter

weekend - e Wakaroa Pigeon Bay Art

Trail.

While the main exhibition and associated

events take place at the Pigeon Bay Hall (in

Banks Peninsula, a little over an hours drive

from Christchurch), additional artworks

form an Art Trail with interesting pieces

installed and featured en route from the

Summit Road/Pigeon Bay Road bus shelter,

to Knox Church yard, the Pigeon Bay

Boating Club, and Wakaroa Point.

Based on stories shared by the Bay

Community and utilising materials from the

Bay wherever possible, these site-specific

and audience responsive art works seek to

celebrate the life and stories of the Bay.

“e trail was inspired by my mum’s

stories of growing up in Pigeon Bay. She

always spoke of her childhood as a time of

formation, of connection and belonging,”

explained artist and event orgniser, Keren

Oertly. “I was interested to explore these

ideas of identity in relation to place. e

community in the Bay was incredibly

supportive and generous throughout this

process – none of this would be possible

without them.”

Providing the soundscape are two highly

respected Canterbury based acts, e Swan

Sisters (Amiria Grenell & Amy Grace

delivering their delicate blend of folk,

country, dreamy pop) and Americana/Blues

outfit, e Great Depression Blues Band.

Also included on the programme is a

presentation, ‘100 Years of Pigeon Bay with

June Hay’. is special address takes place at

3pm on Easter Sunday at the Knox Church.
