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.

No action

yet on

Akaroa

wharf

structures

• By Sarla Donovan

THE CITY council is being

blamed for the delay in removing

unlicensed structures from

Akaroa wharf.

Black Cat Cruises was asked

to dismantle signage, seats and

a wheelchair ramp outside their

building in November as they had

been installed on the city councilowned

wharf without appropriate

permission.

But the Banks Peninsula Community

Board heard last month

that the structures remain in

place.

Akaroa Fishermen’s Association

president John Wright expressed

frustration that several months

after the board requested action,

nothing had happened.

Chief executive at Black Cat

Cruises Paul Milligan told the Bay

Harbour News on Friday the delay

is down to the company wanting

to make sure it isn’t breaking

more rules by removing the

wheelchair ramp.

Mr Milligan said they had

sought clarification from the city

council about whether they can

remove the ramp, and were waiting

to hear back.

SPORT CANTERBURY put on a great

night a couple of Fridays ago to honour

the province’s top sports men and women

– from youth to the elite seniors like Tom

Walsh and Sophie Pascoe.

A highlight was the induction of Pat Barwick as a Sporting

Legend. Leaguie Frank Endacott was also inducted.

Today on pages 8/9 reporter Sarla Donovan profiles Pat, who

is one of our very own – she lives in Mt Pleasant.

Pat, of course, is a New Zealand hockey icon, a tremendous

player, coach, and administrator.

She’s one of these people who when she talks, people listen.

She has a way of getting the message across. Sincere, unflappable

and every word seems to count and mean something.

Sumner 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

re-establish 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 Heathcote Valley in

the 1940s through to the late

1970s.

They include early Australian

import roxburgh red, moorpark

from England, Californian variety

newcastle, hemkirk, dullins,

royal and steven’s favourite.

Some of these still be bought

in nurseries, he said, but others

are more elusive.

It was the advent of supermarkets

in the 1990s that spelled the

end for most boutique growers

around Heathcote and Horotane,

said Mr Hay.

“They didn’t want the auction

system so when you took fruit in

the auctioneer just said: ‘This is

the price.’ And the supermarkets

preferred long-keeping varieties

like sundrop. If you’ve got a

whole lot of dairies and they buy

one or two cases and sell them

within a day or two then they’re

in to get more each day. But

it’s a different process with the

supermarkets.”

Because they bought in larger

quantities they wanted fruit that

would store well, he said.

“So the old varieties have died

out. Some of them were 70-80

years old or more. And what

didn’t die out they bulldozed.

That’s happened all around New

Zealand and all those old varieties

we knew on (our) orchard

are pretty much gone.”

Ms Newbery said Mr Hay

coming on board at the community

garden had provided

a perfect opportunity to graft

onto the food forest’s existing

root stock and start increasing

the diversity of what was currently

there.

“His background has meant

he brings a lot of expertise to

what we’re doing there; he’s really

helped us with pruning and

taught us to prune more effectively

which has been fantastic.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

SUMMIT RD RESTRICTIONS

A proposal to restrict vehicle

access to parts of Summit Rd at

night has been dropped. It was

prompted by concerns about the

level of anti-social behaviour

and damage in the area. But the

city council last week approved a

hearings panel recommendation

that night-time restrictions do not

proceed.

FIRE PLAQUE PROPOSED

Governors Bay resident Alma

Sturgess has proposed a memorial

be placed on the Port Hills

commemorating last year’s fire.

Ms Sturgess raised the idea at

a recent Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board meeting. She

said given the first anniversary

of the fires had recently passed,

it would be appropriate to

acknowledge those who suffered

and those who fought the fires,

particularly helicopter pilot Steve

Askin who lost his life doing so.

COTTAGE RESTORATION

Historic Penfold’s Cob Cottage in

Scott Park will be stabilised and

repaired as soon as possible to

prevent further deterioration. The

walls on the road frontage and the

side facing Ferrymead Bridge will

be repaired and restored to the

original pre-earthquake form. The

remaining two collapsed walls

will also be stabilised.

Church Bay

retail project 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.

Spence Developments is

wholly owned by Douglas and

Lois Spence of Cashmere.

Remuneration not a factor for

• By Sarla Donovan

FAIRNESS: John McLister spoke out about low pay rates earlier this year, but it hasn’t deterred

five people from standing for election to the board.

LOW PAY rates haven’t served

to dampen interest in local body

politics in Lyttelton.

In January this year, Banks

Peninsula Community Board

member John McLister spoke

out against the population-based

formula used by the Remuneration

Authority to set pay rates

for boards.

The population-based model

means boards in areas with

smaller populations get paid less.

Banks Peninsula’s board members

receive $9527 a year, less

than half the $22,503-$23,742

paid to members of the six city

boards.

But this hasn’t deterred the

five candidates contesting the

seat vacated by Christine Wilson.

Funeral consultant Robyn

Struthers, public sector analyst

Tyrone Fields, Healthy Harbour

chairwoman Yvette Couch-

Lewis, community volunteer

Paul Dietsche and bar manager

Ashley Stanbridge are running

in the by-election triggered by

Ms Wilson’s resignation last

month.

Bay Harbour News asked the

candidates what they thought

of the remuneration – and why

they were standing.

Robyn Struthers she understood

that rates were set using

a population based formula but

didn’t want to comment further.

“To me it’s not an issue; I’m

not standing because of that, I’m

standing for the people.”

She said she could understand

the pay rate may affect some

board members’ decision to

stand again. “I am semi-retired.

I’m in a different position; that’s

not my reason for standing and

for some of the younger ones,

probably it is. But I’m in a different

position and I’ve got time.”

Tyrone Fields said if people

had to take time off work it was

“fair enough” they were compensated.

He was aware the population

based model affected the pay

level: “It’s a bit odd that they’re

out of alignment so you’d probably

want to have a look at the

remuneration packages around

community boards in general.”

Mr Fields said having finished

his Masters in social work, the

by-election seemed like an opportune

time to get involved.

“I’ve only been politically

active for a few years but

I’ve always been interested

and the fact that it’s Lyttelton

is the real clincher

for me. It’s a unique opportunity

to connect with

my home town.”

Yvette Couch-Lewis said

it wasn’t an issue she had

taken into consideration.

“I think community

is important and I think

we’re losing a lot of that,

whether at national or

local level. So instead of

complaining about that, I

might as well get in there,

see if it’s true and do

something about it.”

Paul Dietsche said

remuneration was something

that needed to be

addressed, whether he was

elected to the board or not.

“It’s ridiculous that

board members have to

go great distances in the

area at their own expense

because of the low wage.”

He said if elected, one of

the key things he wanted

to work on was increasing

community engagement

with the board.

“I was looking through

the previous six months of

meetings and noted that for

a lot of them there were no

people deputised to speak.

To me that says the public

isn’t very well informed or

engaged with the board.

I think it’s a shame more

people aren’t coming to the

meetings and letting their

concerns be heard.”

Social media was one of

the simplest and cheapest

tools for communicating

with people who weren’t

currently engaged, he said.

Ashley Stanbridge said it

was unfair that the Banks

Peninsula board were paid

less than the city boards,

but he wasn’t standing for

the money.

“I have a job that pays the

bills. It’s about giving a voice

to the younger or less visible

members of the community

that I get to speak with

pretty regularly.”

Mr Stanbridge said

attending fortnightly

full-day meetings wouldn’t

affect his work as he had

flexible hours, though as

the father of a young baby

it would be an extra factor.

“But again, I am raising

a child in this community

so it is in all of our interests

for me to be there.”

Voting papers will arrive

around April 24 and voting

closes on May 16.

the era of sail and steam

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.

Our People

Pat Barwick

Hockey great becomes a Canterbury

Hockey icon Pat Barwick

was inducted into the

Sporting Legends

of Canterbury at the

Canterbury Sports

Awards on March 9.

She talks to reporter

Sarla Donovan about

missing out on Moscow,

developments in

women’s sport, and

impending retirement

It must have been a proud

moment to be named a

Sporting Legend?

Yes, it was humbling and a

lovely surprise. And fabulous

that they had some of my family

down. I didn’t know anything

about it until I walked into

the room on Friday night and

saw my family. Then I knew

something was happening. My

older sister and her hubby came

down from Auckland and my

younger sister from the family

farm in the north of Wanganui.

They stayed for the weekend

so we had a nice long

celebration.

When did you first pick up a

hockey stick?

Not until I was just turning

14. I was in a country school

where we only played rugby

and netball. We had to do both

because we didn’t have enough

boys so we played everything.

There were only 32 at the school

when I was there, that was at

Brunswick School in Wanganui.

So I didn’t really even know

what hockey was. I got involved

with it at high school and it

wasn’t until my second year at

Whanganui Girls’ College that I

was allowed to give up netball.

I could have stopped half-way

through the year but my mum

– quite rightly so – made me

support my team until I finished

the season. The next year I was

allowed to play hockey and I

loved it and within a couple of

years I was doing reasonably

well and continued on.

What are some of the

CAUSAL GARDENER: Pat Barwick, Sporting Legend of Canterbury, at her home in Mt Pleasant.

proudest moments in your

career?

Playing-wise getting into the

national side and captaining it

for most of my playing career.

I remember the match where

we beat England at Wembley

Stadium in 1977 in front of

63,000 people. That was a bit of

a mindblower. Being selected

for the 1980 Moscow Olympics

– though, unfortunately, we

didn’t go in the end. From a

coaching perspective, I had a

pretty successful time taking the

Canterbury women to a number

of titles and then going on to

coach the national team. That

was a real honour and I really

enjoyed the opportunity that I

was given.

What was it like finding

out you wouldn’t be going to

Moscow?

Well it was three weeks before

we were due to leave so it was

pretty gut-wrenching. We had

all the uniforms, all the plans,

everything was ready to go

and then suddenly we weren’t

going anywhere. It was a pretty

sad time for most athletes and

people were pretty upset. I

didn’t remain bitter about it in

later years though some did. I

had the chance to go back as

a coach in Barcelona in 1992

so at least I got to an Olympic

Games but it is different going

as a support person rather than

an athlete – you’re never quite

an Olympian unless you’re an

athlete there.

Hockey looks like quite a

fierce game – what qualities do

you need?

In the past it was a game that

could be played by anyone, any

height, any mobility. But nowadays

on the turf it’s become very

quick so speed is an important

factor. But it’s not the only

thing; you have to have a desire

to learn the skills pretty thoroughly

to be successful because

it is quite a technical game. It’s

demanding when you’re learning

but once you get into it I think

it is a great game in that anyone

can score a goal, anyone can be

part of the whole game – there’s

not too much quiet time so

you’re always involved and that

makes it pleasurable to most

people.

What do you get up to when

you’re not playing/coaching

sport?

I like to be active so I ride my

bike, I play some golf and I’ve

always played a bit of croquet.

I enjoy the garden, I have a big

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

‘casual garden’ as I call it so

there’s always plenty to do there.

Other than that I’ve always

enjoyed supporting Forest and

Bird and am looking to help

somewhere on a project with

them, now that I have a bit of

time.

Sporting-wise, Canterbury

seems to bat above its weight.

What do you put that down to?

There’s still a lot of awareness

and interest in sport here –

the red and black culture is

still strong. We’re not a huge,

million-plus city so we still have

a community feel and I think

when you have that there’s a lot

more cross-code interaction and

support for each others’ sport as

well as the people involved.

I think that sheer interest in

each other is still very strong

here.

Fire rages, homes at risk

sporting legend

I hear the Black Ferns are

getting professional contracts.

Do you feel we’re at a bit of

a turning point in women’s

sport?

Definitely, we always knew it

was about to happen. Women

are the area of sport that are

now making a huge leap in their

performances. The change in

their ability to play more fulltime,

to show that they can

advance their own sport a lot

further than previously. Giving

them (financial) support is

important as it enables them to

play at a higher level for longer.

In doing that it means you

get really good performances

because they’re becoming more

experienced, they’re becoming

more capable, they’re fitter,

faster, and can develop those

characteristics that you need.

You’re seeing a really great move

right now in the development

of the whole women’s sports

field right across the spectrum

and we’ll continue to do that for

another eight or 10 years until

we get to the top of it.

So how much longer before

there’s an equal playing field?

Equal playing field only ever

means money and in the end

it’s about money through the

gate. Until women are able to

attract the same crowds to their

games as the men it’s difficult

to look at the balance of funds

and I understand that. But it

still means for the next eight

to 10 years women need to be

given support to achieve that.

And unless that happens they

probably won’t ever achieve

it. I think the nature of the

games have become really

well-developed in the sense

that the skill level, the physical

capabilities and the athleticism

of women now is certainly

making it more attractive to a

wider public to watch. So maybe

we’ll increase the gates and

they’ll increase the balance of

pay. That’s how it works. But to

me it’s more about how women

can be successful – that’s the

exciting part. The other part, the

professionalism is another whole

LEGEND: Pat Barwick captained the New Zealand hockey

team for nine years from 1971-79. During her tenure, the

team controversially finished third at the 1975 World Cup in

Edinburgh against England as reported in The Press. Two years

later, she captained New Zealand to victory over England at

Wembley Stadium before 63,000 spectators.

cog in the wheel.

You captained NZ in your

first ever match, how did that

happen and what was it like?

It was pretty interesting. I had

captained one team – the NZ

Universities side for a couple

of matches against Australia

a few years before. But other

than that I’d never been a club

team captain or a Canterbury

or Hawkes Bay captain. So it

was a bit of a mind-blower. I

think a lot of it was to do with

the fact I was the centre half

and when you play in the centre

of the paddock you’re fairly

well connected with everybody

across the pitch. At the time

there were still players in the

team that had been away on

previous internationals so I

was quite surprised because

they were more experienced

and good people. I think it was

a positional issue but maybe I

showed a bit more leadership

quality then than I realised.

When did you go from

playing to coaching?

I retired from the national

team in 1980 – that was the year

we didn’t go to the Olympics

and I pretty much retired

straight away. I was still playing

for the Canterbury team and

they asked me to be a player

coach which was unusual at that

level but I did it with the help

of a manager-coach. So I got

into that level pretty quickly. I

had about six good years with

Canterbury hockey and then I

was able to put my name in the

hat for the national side.

Do you see us being world

champions any time soon?

We’ve been in the top four

in the last two Olympic Games

and that’s massive. They’re

a top team and they’ve been

performing extremely well over

the last few years. Getting in the

top four in the world in hockey

is up there and to do it twice

in a row that’s been quite an

achievement.

Do you think the funding for

NZ Hockey is adequate?

I think we’re pretty well

supported by high performance

funding and other agencies.

We have a good foundation

that supports the players and

the teams when they have

to centralise in Auckland.

Our people are centralised in

Auckland, and they train as

much as they can – probably

not quite as much as a fully paid

athlete but they’re still getting

a lot of training. I think we’re

doing about as well as we can

expect at the moment. Certainly

funding is pretty generous on

New Zealand terms, we don’t

have all the money in the world,

we’re a small country and can’t

support everything.

I hear you’re retiring from

your coaching adviser role at

Sport Canterbury?

I’m having my farewell this

afternoon actually, I’m finishing

up today. I’ve had twelve and a

half years here so it’s been one

of my longer terms of work

through my life. It’s a really

enjoyable environment; lots

of passionate people doing

things to help other passionate

people. It’s a great environment

of positivity to walk into every

morning so it makes work easy.

I’ll miss the people. I’m a people

person and enjoy watching them

grow and develop and learn. It’s

the teacher in me as well as the

coach. So personally I will miss

those regular contacts but I’ll be

out doing things.

So what’s the plan this

afternoon?

We’re wrapping up the week

with a bit of a party after work

and I’m going to have a bit of

fun for a few hours so that will

be really nice, a nice casual

send-off.

“We were required to put that

consent so we don’t want to

appease one arm of the city

council and then upset another.

We would like (clarification)

before we go ahead and

Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner said city council staff

were “continuing to work

through some of the complex issues

regarding the implications

of removing the structures. I

expect there will be an update

at the next community board

meeting,” he said.

Mr Wright has written to city

council chief executive Karleen

Edwards, as has Akaroa Civic

Trust chairman Mike Norris.

Murray Kiely, a commercial

fisherman in Akaroa for nearly

40 years said it was “all very

tense” due to the length of time

it was taking for action.

He owns a food business on

the wharf, and said it became

very crowded when cruise ships

berthed and put up gazebos for

the passengers.

“When you’re trying to run a

business and there’s busy people

walking on and off, you’ve got

these structures and it makes it

very hard to get up and down

the wharf.”

building was destroyed in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

On Saturday morning, members

and friends of the club

attended a ceremony to dedicate

the recently constructed memorial

gates and flagpole at the site

of their former clubhouse on

Wakefield Ave.

Reverend Thomas Brauer conducted

the ceremony, assisted by

Father Dan Doyle.

president Bill Joines spoke and

Royal New Zealand Returned

and Services Association

president B J Clark, Deputy

Mayor Andrew Turner and

district president Royal New

Association Stan Hansen were

present.

The gates and flagpole were

erected in memory of fallen servicemen.

A seat commemorates

two former members, Lucy and

Stuart Routledge, victims of the

earthquake and Ian Caldwell

who died on the RSA site the day

of the earthquake.

The Sumner/Redcliffs RSA has

occupied a number of venues

since the earthquakes but has

continued to organise Anzac Day

parades and other commemorative

events. It also supports fellow

members and their families in

times of need.

Stream health declining

Restoring

diversity in

our streams

will take

time, writes

Banks

Peninsula

Water

Management

Zone Joint Committee

chairwoman Paula Smith

MANY OF our Banks Peninsula

streams are not as healthy as

they should be, and ecological

health is declining in some.

This is not good news for our

native fish.

Twenty-four streams on Banks

Peninsula are assessed each year

as part of Environment Canterbury’s

Aquatic Ecosystem Health

programme. When the variable

results were presented to the

zone committee last November

questions arose about why some

streams appeared to be deteriorating,

including streams such as

Waimawete at Allendale (Living

Springs) and Te Wharau in

Charteris Bay, both of which are

now fenced and well vegetated

for most of their length, from

hilltop to harbour.

Each year the zone

committee invests $100,000

of Immediate Steps funding

on Banks Peninsula, mostly

on fencing to exclude stock

and riparian planting along

streams on private land.

Committee members expected

to see improvements in aquatic

ecosystem health in catchments

which are now well protected.

At our recent March meeting

ECan chief scientist Tim Davie

explained what can be learned

by looking at the detailed macroinvertebrate

data.

In both Waimawete and Te

Wharau Streams macro-invertebrate

diversity is very low.

The few species which are

present are those known to be

tolerant of sediment. Many of

the invertebrates you would expect

to find in a healthy stream

cannot survive and reproduce

where there is sediment coating

the stream bed.

Mr Davie concluded that while

the fencing and planting in these

two catchments is likely to be

contributing to a significant reduction

of sediment entering the

streams, it may take some years

before we see the full diversity

of macro-invertebrates typical

of a healthy aquatic ecosystem

restored, especially at the lower

reaches of the streams.

Don’t miss your Easter

treats – order early

The beautiful, plump, hot cross

buns are selling fast at Lyttelton

Bakery, so to make sure you don’t

miss out on these traditional treats

they advise that you place your

order well before Thursday, March

29 – the bakery will be closed over

Easter.

Another “hot” item at the popular

bakery is the Glamour Cake donuts,

which are available weekdays and

Saturdays. With long queues for

these, you need to get there early.

Saturday is a “big day” in

Lyttelton, bakery owner Ian Scott

says, with the market stalls and the

local shops all contributing to the

lively atmosphere.

“Overall, Lyttelton is becoming

much more vibrant. A new bar and

a new café opening this month are

all part of that and we welcome

them to Lyttelton.”

With demand for Lyttelton

Bakery’s wide range of delicious

products also continually growing,

they have had to take on two new

staff members, Ian says.

The huge range of specialty

biscuits, including Dutch biscuits,

are among the items that “fly off the

shelves”, he says.

Customers can also sit down and

relax with some of these tasty treats

and a hot drink in the bakery’s cosy

café.

“We’d like to thank the locals,

and those who come to Lyttelton

for work, for their support of the

bakery – we enjoy being part of this

friendly community,” Ian says.

Lyttelton Bakery is located at 8

Norwich Quay and is open from

6.30am-5pm Monday to Friday

and 7am-2.30pm Saturday. Closed

Sundays and public holidays.

Hills, Nuk

Easter is a significant religious

event and many in our Port Hills

communities will be attending

Church services on Good Friday

and Easter Sunday.

Chris and I will attend the

Good Friday service at St

Augustines and then home for

hot cross buns with lashings of

butter with our boys.

In the afternoon we are all

going to Governors Bay School

for the beginning of its 150th

Golden Jubilee Celebrations.

Bus cuts make no sense

On Sunday at 2am we turn our

clocks back an hour as daylight

saving finishes, a time when our

evenings are drawing in earlier

and the days are much cooler.

The upside of autumn is the

vibrant colours as you drive

through the Port Hills and walk

through our many parks. It is my

favourite season.

Beyond Easter if you want to

catch up with family and friends

in Rapaki or Lyttelton, you may

find yourself out of luck.

ECan is proposing cutting

the number 535 from Eastgate

to Rapaki and the 145 bus from

Westmorland to Eastgate. This

news hit the headlines after

ECan announced they would be

dropping six bus routes.

It doesn’t make sense to stop

critical bus services in our community

and I am lobbying for

that not to happen. Lyttelton and

Rapaki are less accessible areas

of Christchurch and many in

our community will be affected

including our schoolchildren,

workers in the central city and

most worrying is the independence

of the elderly and those who

don’t drive.

Submissions are now closed

and I want to assure you that I

am doing all I can to push for a

good outcome for our residents

in the affected Port Hills areas. I

believe this is a serious problem

that will damage the independence

of many people.

Over these next few days

though, relax and enjoy your

time with whanau and friends

and I wish you all a very happy

and safe Easter.

Silver for Green Diamonds

in Oderings garden awards

DIAMOND Harbour School’s

Green Diamonds team received

silver in the Oderings School

Garden Show held at the

Woolston Club recently.

The garden show involved

planning and creating a garden

which represented the theme

‘into the future.’

The Green Diamond’s silver

award-winning entry was based

around sustaining the environment

and recognising and

managing the challenges we

may face in the future.

The team planned their

garden before the show, built

the necessary constructions and

planted up plants. Then, over

two days, the garden was constructed

at the Woolston Club.

Key aspects of the garden

included a living wall

representing Diamond Harbour,

native plants from Banks

Peninsula, a vertical garden

with an automatic watering

system, a bug hotel (bugs will

be an important food source

in the future), a robot that

watered a garden (set off by a

moisture sensor) and a range

of xerophytes (plants that have

adapted for tolerating drought).

The Green Diamonds said

they were grateful to the

Canterbury Horticultural

Society and Oderings for

making the opportunity

possible, along with Magic

Moss, Resene, Intelligro

and Garden Makers and the

Diamond Harbour Reserves

Management Committee which

provided materials and plants to

help create their garden.

INTO THE FUTURE: Molly, Anna, Abby and Otis with their

silver award-winning garden entry.

Great rates,

Kennedy

to run for

NZ Paris

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER’S SOFIA Kennedy

will run under one of the world’s

most iconic landmarks when she

represents New Zealand at the

world secondary school crosscountry

champs next week.

Kennedy (below), 17, is part of

the six-strong New Zealand girls

team which travelled to Paris

on Sunday for the event. It will

see more

than 600

runners

from 33

countries

across five

continents

take on a

crosscountry

course

which

runs under

the Eiffel

Tower.

In July,

Kennedy

finished 12th at the NZ

secondary school cross-country

champs. She finished the 4000m

course at the Ascot golf course

in 14min 59sec, which earned

her a spot in the New Zealand

squad to travel to the Australian

schools cross-country championships

in Hobart where she

finished 36th in the under-18

girls division.

What makes the results

remarkable is that Kennedy had

been focusing on basketball at

the time. However, since being

selected to travel to France, she

has turned her attention to running

and is working with coach

Lockie Campbell.

In basketball, Kennedy has

represented Canterbury at age

group level and is a part of the

Canterbury Wildcats training

group this year.

Last year, she was named in

the under-18 national basketball

squad as a non-travelling reserve

for the FIBA under-17 Oceania

championships in Guam.

Kennedy’s race will take place

next Wednesday in Paris.

National call up for Taylors lifesaver

A MAIDEN open grade national

title at the New Zealand Surf Life

Saving Championships has seen

Taylors Mistake lifesaver Louis

Clark selected for the national

youth development squad.

Clark, 16, astounded many

when he won the gold medal in

the open men’s surf race event in

Gisborne last weekend, competing

against much older and more

experienced lifeguards.

As a member of the youth

squad, Clark has the potential

to be selected to represent New

Zealand in the NZ youth team

for the World Surf Life Saving

Championships, which will be

held in Adelaide in November.

Clark also won bronze in the

under-19 surf race, which had a

slightly shorter course. He was

also a member of the Taylors

Mistake taplin team which

ended up winning silver after

holding the lead for three legs of

the six-leg relay.

The taplin relay event is one of

the most prestigious and fiercely

contested races on the nationals

programme. The relay consists

of six team members, two ski

paddlers, two swimmers and two

talent and skill in catching

large waves brought his team up

leg. This lead was held until the

end of the very last board leg

where the team was passed by

There was also a gold medal for

multi-talented athlete Georgia

Heathcote celebrate perfect season

• By Gordon Findlater

HEATHCOTE have completed

the perfect season by winning

the senior A one-day, two-day

and combined trophies.

The rare three-peat was

celebrated earlier than

anticipated by the team at their

clubrooms on Saturday due to

the final day of the season being

rained off.

The team also farewelled

three of their longest standing

players.

The three-peat marked the

final season for club legend

John Gary. The 49-year-old has

completed his 18th season with

the senior squad.

Earlier in the season, he

became the first player from any

club to score 10,000 runs in the

metro A competition. He also

holds the record for runs in a

season with 1060.

It was also the final season

for Grant Stewart who took 309

wickets over 13 seasons, and

player coach Shane McConnell.

“It was a really special night for

the club,” said captain Matthew

House.

“We’ve had the same core

for the past two or three years.

It was great to see it all come

together this season.”

In December, Heathcote

captured the one-day trophy

by defeating Lancaster Park

Addington by 38 runs. Since

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

He made my teeth look

so natural, real, and a

little bit aged, not like the

sparkly white dentures

everyone else has.

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.”

Lovebite is located at 402 Montreal

St. Phone (03) 379 1222. Hours 9am-

5.30pm Monday - Friday.
